FERGUSON, BRITJ8H COLUMBIA, OCTOBER 31, 1901.
82.00 A YEAR.
Investors  Must  Use  Their  Own
Judgment or Fall.
SHY CLEAR OF Ti KNOCKERS
lather Utilize Your Own Brains or
Engage and Pay a Practical
Man of Experience.
Intend to do, for, or why take tbo unfounded "hifalutin" gush that a clever
advertising writer hands you out ns
the real thing, that you may safely
leap before you look ? If It impresses
you as a good thing���plunge. If it
strikes you that it has no future, no
raorlt, no room for improvement, no
field for operation or prolits���let it
alone.
THERE'S LIGHT AHEAD.
MINING IS WHAT YOD MAKE IT
The man who uses his own judgment, who draws bis own conclusions,
based upon study and consideration
and analysis generally succeeds. De-
livor us from tbe person who swallows
all that is told him, be it good, bad or
indifferent, says the Mining World.
Such a person is an injury to bis
neighbor as woll as to himself. His
judgment-is difficult. Like an unused
muscle he lacks strength, precision,
solidity. He is not to bo relied upon.
In times of danger, when quick decisive
action'Is called for, it is'the man of
sound judgment,
Tlio AIhii of Self-Roltaiico,
who is looked to to rescue the perish
ing and who proves himself a hero. It
is not thu man wbo wants to see what
his noighbors are going to do, and win
asks what his neighbors think about it
who proves himself a Gibraltar when
the waves of adversity dash against
him.
Let Knob Man Act For Himself
Independently, lf he wishes to purchase a horse or a home let him do it
as he should by a personal investigation. Tho same thing should apply to
Investments in stocks. Why should a
bucket shop broker or a penny-u-linor
on a nowspaper, whieh generally blackmails both tho inquirer and the inquired of, bo consulted? The opinion
of a penny-a-liner of a certain class of
newspapers is based, in tbe majority of
.instances, upon the size and frequency
of its advertising patronage.
No Advertisement, No Favorable Nbtlce

of the latter mode up in a newspaper
office nnd initals attached thereto for
an ostensible purpose. Give ono of
theso oowttrdly cormorants an advertisement and ho will

based upon purely personal likes or
dislikes and tho number of lines iu the
advertising columns. It is not only
laughable and lumnntablo, when theso
futile efforts of tho "guldo, philosopher
and friend" of the doar public is considered. Many a man lias lost a fortune
by taking tho advice of a friend (?)

Hoela, tho liutto coppers and hundreds
of other fortune dividend payers by the

"wolf criers," who always materialize
when something now is presontod to
tho public. Theso self-appointed
advisers are like the weeds in tho garden, they aro always thoro. Therefore,
we say, let overy man who Is going 'to
invest his money in an enterprise take
the same personal interest in that
investment that he would if ho were

B. H. Sawyer, manager for tho Lardeau Power & Light Co., writes from

forseen ^accidents there will be 300

It must be passed through and the

A company has been organized at
tho coast with a capital of half a million dollars which purposes manufacturing pulp and paper in this provinco.
Tho outlook for the new paper and pulp

CIRCLE CUV CERTITUDE,
With tho development of numerous
mining prospects up the north fork
C'lrcte City will build up, and next
season will seo the nucleus of a smart
littie mining town. There is certainly
no danger of tho railway getting past
Circlo City, for it is located at the baso
of a mountain range whieh lies between
this and tho Duncan rivor valley. Considerable collateral will certainly
circulate in Circle City as its surrounding mines are opened up. Invest in a

who doosn't know how to work it for

Martin and B. J. Perry are the principal stockholders, but tho minority stock
holders will make an effort to pay tho
mortgage oil'. Parties interested claim
that tho property cnuld pay itself out
lo three months and leave the stockholders one of tho best assets in the

GOVERNMENT'S LOST OPFOTUNITY.
There Is a shrowd suspicion in some
quarters that thero Is moro In tho
plan for tho erection of a silver-lead
smelting and a lead refinery at Marys-
ville In tho oast Kootonay than appears
on tho surfaco. . Some think that thoy
cau discern tho fine Italian hand of the
Atnorican Smelting trust and declare
that the moving spirit in the enterprise is that big monopoly and not the
Sullivan Group Milling company.
Circumstantial evidence is brought
forward iu support of this theory, says
the Nolson Miner which enumerates
very good reasons for the belief. If
B. C. only had a government with the
spirit of the mighty private trust what
a difference there would be.
The population of West Kootonay,
according to thc census, is 23,026. The
Rossland riding comes first with 7,003,
Nelson second with 7,102, Slocan third
with ,1,321 and Revolstoke fourth with
3,003. East Kootenay district totals up

The Nettie L. hill is even more interesting today than ever bofore. Very
few people have any accurate idea of
the amount of work which has been
done on the hill just east of and so near
Ferguson. An EAGLE representative
left town on Sunday morning last to
spend a couple of days on the hill
Leaving here we took tho south fork
wagon road to 3-mile ereok, H milos,
where the nsw Nettle L. wagon road
branches off. . A couple of sivitehlineks
lip tlie 5-milocreek valley gives the
new road a good elevation, and from
there a gradual climb along the moun
tain side is made, swinging right
around to the north fork slope and into
tbo 2-milo crook hash! and up to tho
upper workings ofthe Nettie L., where
Gordon McLennan anil crew are still
working, continuing the rniul up to tho
Ajax workings. It is a good wagon
road, though tho grade will he heavy
in a few places, and it will certainly

encountered whieh of course run the

prospectors camped under a tree, and
tramped th^ surrounding hills day in

found and we nre developing today.
The remains of tho old camp lire, the

near the mountain top from tho south

ourselves on
Tbo Maybe Mineral Claim

is a shaft of nearly 100 feet. Bolow

and for this reason alone will succeed
if there is any success in store for
them. Leaving here wo swing around
into 2-milo creek basin, only a short
distance, to the long lower tunnel on
The Nettle L. Property.
This tunnel is now in li75 feet some
000 feet of which is a drift on a lodge
from tho crosscut. We just happened
to reach the face of the tunnel as the
miners were putting in the first shot
to break through the footwall so as
to crosscut another 40 feet, from whieh
point they will
Raise Perpendicularly Over 200 Feet
to catch the bottom of the winze in tho
upper workings, thus giving the owners
a depth of over 400 feet. This will
open up the property to such an extent
that it can at least be called
A Miniature Mine.
A Polton wheel, driving a fan by water
power generated while (lowing down
the hill from tho long tunnel, supplies
fresh air to tlie water-soaked hardworking miner whilo there he stands
fur eight, hours out of tho twenty-four
pounding steel, 'neath the glare of a
gr.'ttsy oandle in a dark and dungenn-
like holo, full of had air and shut out
from the sunshine and cheerfulness
afforded above ground. Ore has been
encountered at two or three points
along the drift, but no heed has been
pa|d to it as yet, as the immediate
object of the company is to get tho
Upper mill Lower Workings Connected
as soon as possible, thus giving them
enough stuping ground to lasttwoor
three years, while a systematic and
extensive course of development can be
pursued at greater deptii at the same
time. To give unexperienced persons
somo idea of the great expense attached to developing a mining prospect,
the Eaqle might mention thut this
tunnol alono has cost the company
nearly $15,000. In fact overy pound of
ore the company  has shipped to date,
Over ���lisn.ooo Worth,
has been put back into development
work, aside, of course, from the amounts
paid for supplies, freighting, ore treatment, taxes, etc. Having made our
way from the lower "diggings" to the
upper workings, we were agreeably surprised to find Manager W. B.
Pool on tho ground, who joined us in
our outing, and aftor catering to tlie
inner man along with
A Foreo of Over 30 Men
in a commodious moss room faultlessly
presided over by Harry Nellis, we
spent tbe afternoon on tho Ajax, an
adjoining claim of tho Nettie L. belonging to the samo company. Here
several men nre at work sinking shafts
and pursuing work somewhat of a

PUBLICITY NEEDED
The Resources of British Columbia
Are Practically Unknown.
Uncle Sam Has the Right Kind of
People With All Kinds
of Money.
THEY SAVVY THEIR BUSINESS
The Eagle bas many times pointed
out the need of tho government advertising tho rich resources of this provinco throughout the money centres of
the world whero the banks aro loaded
down with money earning practically
nothing. Wm. MncAdams has jast
returned from a trip to western Ontario;
and many of the prominent cities of
the United Statos, and hero are somo
of the conclusions he has arrived at.
He says: "In trying to make known,
the mineral resources of this provinco
tiie II. C. government seems to go on
the assumption that Britishers aro thc
only folks who have tho money witli
whioh to take a chance in mining.
United Statos is very carefully avoided.
For instance, at tlie Glasgow Industrial
our exhibit is one of the finest. At thc
Pan there is nothing to remind tbe
visitor that B. (','. is on tho map. In
London J. Ii. Turner is re-opening
tho provincial office. Iu New York,
Boston, Chicago, St. Louis, Detroit,
Cleveland, San Francisco or Denver a
man might prospect from now till
kingdom come foi' a B. C. information
bureau hut he would never find it.
"Advertising in Glasgow and London
is all right, but if advertising in Great
Britain pays this province advertising
in United States should pay it ten
times better. United States is the
home of the mining capitalist Tho
Americans understand mining and
make a success of it. They do not
hoodoo their investments with a lot of
yellow-leg exports and they keep no
sissy cousins pensioned on the pay roll.
When American capitalists meet with
reverses, they go right along, satisfied
that they will make a winning on tho
next turn. Americans will tako hold
of properties in the prospect stage.
The Britisher wants a thoroughly
developed mine and he usually gets
swindled out of his eye teeth when ho
tries to buy ono. London has a horde
of crooked stock brokers but it seems
to havo a vory small percentage of
legitimate mining men.
"Tho moneyed folks of such towns as
Boston, Cleveland, Denver aud 'Frisco
havo become wealthy in mining anil
they are still in tho business. If tho
B. C. government would drop its
simpering chappy sentiment about the
mothor country and do some advertising where there is business to be had
thero would bo loss talk about tho lack
of capital in tho Kootenay."

What has this district ever done

tion, or the capabilities ot the
munngement. It takes mining men
to mine succes.sfully, not green-
whiskered farmers, or bankers���men
who issue drafts on eternity. It is
quite true that all men had to learn
the art ot mining but they begun i at
the beginning. The average stoclc
company mining man around here
is it the beginning of his end. They
may learn some day, but how about
the innocent stoclc buyer in the
meantime, who probably mortgaged
his home or gave up his years of
earnings in the false hope of acquiring sudden wealth? Were these
men or companies to hire practical
mining men and mine underground,
well and good, but how often is this
the case ? The sooner there is more
light thrown upon this inflicted industry, the better for future mining.
The mining business is all right and
perfectly legitimate in every particular. It is on the square when so
conducted. But the many opportunities presented to promoters for
easy money from the ever gullible
investing public is almost appalling.
Even the simplest' of business
methods and precaution are scarcely
ever exercised by stoclc buyers.
Experience comes high, and apparently the only way to acquire it is to
buy it.

The only thing that will make the
public ownership ot public utilities
practicable is the adoption ol direct
legislation. Until that is secured
public ownership simply means
greater opportunities for political

ownership simply means ownership

government, with the added powers
of government to aid them in plundering the people. We must get
direct legislation so as to secure

There is an opening in Ferguson
for a butcher shop. There are five
hotels here and quite a number of
residences. There is the Nettie L.
and a dozen other mines to supply;
yet Ferguson has to go out of town
for fresh meat. If Pat Burns cannot put a butcher shop in Ferguson
during the next thirty days the Eagle
can assure him of two others who
are quite willing to do so. And
what is more, ihe Eagle can guarantee the hearty support of the
above hotels, residences and mines
to the first person who will open a
butcher shop in Ferguson. If Pat
Burns wants the fresh meat trade
in this town and vicinity he will
have to come to us, We have run

Dear Friends:
I feci that I can address you as friends, since
we are all in the samo work and have so many
of the same interests. Thc great crying need of
this district has been for a smeltor to treat our
ores at a profit to ourselves. Were the great Le
Roi mine where ours arc it would not under
existing "ircum'stances be worth five cents, but
with a railroad and. smelter near at hand even
its lowest grade ore can be made to pay. 1
hr.ve studied over this problem for many
months and at lust have succeeded in
solving the question I believe.
The style ofjsmclter we have purchased is not
one of the old type whicli would take perhaps
two years to build, but an entirely new style
known as the Vulcan Furnace. It does thc
most thorough work in the simplest possible
way. Much of the expensive machinery is
done away with by tho invention of a
very simple device, whicli creates the
tremendous suction needed. I saw a
plant in operation when* it wus treating tho
basest kind o( copper ore, where over fiO per
cent, was rock matter, and the result was as
follows : Copper lost in the slag, less than one
half of one per rent. The matte was really
bullion, being almost % per cent, pure metal.
By this treatment in the ordinar' run ofsilvcr-
leHd ores tho loss of lead Is not more than 3
per cent.
Wc propose to erect a plant at onco at Ferguson, which will be in operation by the middle
of January, barring unforsccn accidents. It
will hftve a smelting capacity of thirty tons a
day.
We propose to treat thc ores at a lower
cost by far than tho present smelters truiit for.
For instance, what is tiie cost per ton today for
thc treatment of our ore ?   A fair sample :
1. Freight from Ferguson to Arrow
lake  110.00
2. Freight from Landing to smelter
and treatment    15.00
3. A discount of 5 per cent, on gold
values, average     2.00
4. A discount of 5 per cent, ou silver
values,avorage    10,00
fi.   Loss of lead or copper altogether
average    30.00
Total    ?G7.00
Not one of the smelters will pay for more
than threo of the values, not even thc Swansea.
Is this an exaggaration? No! It docs not yet
represent tho cost as it Is today. Tlio smelters
often times deduct It per cent, for moisture
whon of course there is very seldom a Iobs of
any such a per cent. Then besides all this,
aftor robbing us entirely of our lead values
they also charge u ponalty on lead if tl*cru is
over 10 per cent. Also they charge a penalty
when there is any quantity of zinc.
Now it is the purpose of the company
which I represent to charge no penalties.
We will treat your ores for ?2J>.00 a ton
straight and give to you all tho values
coming out of your ores, and allow you
to collect from tho refinery every cent coming
to you. Or if you insist upon tt we will treat
your oroa in Ferguson at the very same rate as
tho present smelters treat the ore, thus saving
you tho cost of transportation. We sec nothing
in the war to provent us doing this. Of course
these statements refer lo tho average oros of

Socialism would give every citizen

The name of tho townsite at the foot
of Trout litlto has again been changed.
First It wus Selkirk, next Twin Falls,
now It Is Oorrard. Surely the C. P.R.,
if they cans anything for the Interests
of Trout Lake, will also change the
namo of that rising town. The present
name creates a going-down-for-the-
third-time foellng.
Tho Butte, Montana, mines have laid
off over HOOI' men during the past week.
The trusts are manipulating for a
couple of weeks, when work may be
resumed as usual. But there's never
any kick when the mine and smelter
ownors goon strike. Do you see anything wrong Mr. Miner ? Thn people's
trust would never be subjected to
manipulation.
The Trout Lake Tople has grown
sanguine and certain���all in one week
���that "the flrBt of December trains

Yet, an ore house must be built to store
away the ore until spring. Growing
still moro exuberant tho Wind-Jammer
says: "Trout Lako will thon be the
centre towards which all the ore of tho
Lardoau valley will trend for shipment
to the smeltor." This is exactly tbe
enviable position enjoyed by Thomson

Lardeau and Trout Lake District
The Trout Lake Topic 1b nothing if
not a mimicry. It's burlesque Imitation of the Eaolk, mechanloally, Is
very amusing, but it shows at least one
trait of good judgment. What a
funeral of dead advts. tbere must havo
been during the transformation.
However, the Topic has been pruned
down to our size, and as one of Its scare
line headings read "things never
looked better tban they do at present
and a lively winter may be expected In
Trout Lake," we trust Its editor will
succeed In making enough money |to
eliminate the wrapping paper feature
so predominant at the Topic office just
now. A town whioh forces its newspaper to adopt suoh stringent measures
in order to keop out of the shadow of
the sheriff and appoareoral-occaslonally
Is scarcely worth wasting oven Mr.
Langstaff's time let alone good
wrapping paper.
Because of its unique geographical position; nature having provided as pretty a flat bench, at
the junction of the north and
south forks of Lardeau creek, as
ever a town was built up on in
British Columbia.
Because the wonderful mineral
developments during the past
season have been a marvel to
outsiders seeking investment.
Not only have the old stand-by
properties improved with depth,
but the new finds and many test
ore shipments are exceedingly
gratifying, and attention must
surely be attracted this way.
B\B CAU SB
Because the shipping mines are
located on Nettie L. hill, between the two creek forks; on
the Great Northern hill just
north of the town itself; and on
the south fork and its tributaries,
for all of which Ferguson is the
supply point.
Because mine owners hire their
crews in Ferguson and pay them
off in Ferguson.
Because the offices of many of
the companies operating in the
camp are located here.
Because Ferguson receives the
pay roll benefit from these working mines.
w
H
Because this is the point where wl
mining men coming into the district make their headquarters; as
they can walk or ride and return
from most of the properties in
one day or less.
Because every pound of ore from
these mines coming down thc
hill lands first, in Ferguson.
From here it will be teamed to
transportation on thc lake, a
distance of four miles.
Because when the railway reaches
the place where the mines are il
will reach Ferguson.
Because there is every natural advantage for the building up of a
great mining center.
But why give other reasons:   We hare the mines, the pay roll, the natural geographical location, unlimited* water power, etc., and the right kind of people to make   ^
a town.   The ore shipments, increasing business, and money and enterprise will do the   |
rest.   Come and see for yourself.
