completed and they reached Arrowhead with their heavy lood.
The trip was dangerous in the extreme for the men knew not the moment when they might all go through

brave men have won tho admiration of
a host of people.
Tho Fernie Strike.
Had it not boon for the bravery and
persistence of members of the Ferguson miners' Union two of the bodies of
the unfortunate men who died as a
result of tho disaster in tho Nettio L.
could not have boen sent to relatives
in Eastern Canada. The relatives
naturally wished to havo tbo bodies
buried at home, but the arm of Arrow
lake was called impassable. Notwithstanding tbis the Union men undertook to deliver tho caskets containing
tho bodies at Arrowhead and thoy
succeeded nobly. In tho first place the
caskets arrived at Arrowhead on the
9th, At the time tbere woro about 20
people waiting for the boat to run but
tho boat is not running even now
eleven days lator. Frank Holten wbo
was returning from Victoria saw what
was probable and together with six
other volunteers thoy secured a cuttor,
took the box oil, placed tbo four coffins
on it and pulled it by haud 12 miles
ovor the lake through snow and broken
ice and dodging air holos. When tbey
reached Beaton Audy Craig had a
toam and sleigh ready and brought the
coffins through to Ferguson a distance
ol 10 miles tho samo night, breaking the road through two foet of newly
fallen snow.
Whon the inquest was over Tuesday
night Dave Morgan, [president, and
Frank Treanor, secretary of the union,
called for volunteers to deliver the
bodies of Gagnon and Calder to relatives who woro waiting to take charge
of thorn at Arrowhead boing unable to
come any farther owing to the condition of the lake. In a few minutes the
required number had como  forward.
On Wednesday after the burial of
two bodies near Trout Lake, tho three
sleighs carrying the other two bodies
and tba transport committeo continued
the journey to Beaton.
Thursday morning oarly the two
collius containing tlie bodies woro
placed on Holten's useful cutter and a
string team was made up of tho following:

with u team comprising 20 men, and a
rope was strung out from tho sleigh
and the men placod 20 feet apart to
avoid having too much weight in one
place and tbreo men wont ahead testing tho loo. All went woll for four
miles when one of tbo team, a stout
fellow named Ack'ert, tho only man
not a member of the union, got on tho
load saying ho was played out and
would 'havo to bo hauled. The men
felt annoyed for this man asked to bo
allowod to go but they suppressed their
indignation and hauled him the
remaining six milos. Tho trip was

The following despatch from Fornio
dated March llth, makes the situation
look brighter and no doubt the differences will be settled in a few days:
After many conferences between the
representatives of tho striking coal
miners, the Crow's Nest Company
officials and tbo conciliation committeo
appointed by tho Hroviucial Mining
Association, all the chief obstacles to a
satisfactory settlement have at luigth
been removed.
Concessions have boon made by both
the parties, and the work of tho committee has beon considerably lightened by the mutual forobearnnco exercised during the lengthy sessions hold
here since Saturday last.
There are still somo matters of
detail to be settled, but with patience
and tact it is now reasonably certain
that all questions in dispute will bo
harmoniously settled this weok.
There were two meetings today ono

Lord Strathcona's Annual Roport,
Lord Strathcona, in his annual
report to tho trade and commerce department at Ottawa on March I2th
entertains no hope that restrictions on
tho frcu entry of Canadian cattle into
tho United kingdom will be removed
notwithstanding the agitation to that
ond principally ln Scotland. Improved
markets for imported meat aro anticipated ln the near future, and tho high
commissioner urges that greater attention be paid to this branch of export from Canada than at present. Ho
points out that,tho chilled meat imported from tho United States in 1901
was equal to 312,000 head of cattle.
It is noted with satisfaction that
Canada ia now tbo second largest
shipper of wheat lo tho United Kingdom, although last year's shipments
did not amount to moro tbau 10 per
coat of tho whole importations. Tho
Canadian grain is very well spoken of.
Thero is a gratifying increase in the
quantity of Hour imported from tho
Dominion, and it now occupies the
second place in the returns after the
United Statos. In referring to tho
discrimination of Germany against
Canadian grain the high commissioner
sees no way of getting ovor tho difficulty until negotiations bo opened up
with Germany by which Canadian
imports may bo put on a better footing
than thoy now enjoy. Lord Strath-
ia secured from Right Hon. Mr.
Chamberlain, prior to his departure
to South Africa, a promise that Canadian products would not bo overlooked
in tbo purchase of oattle and supplies
fur re-stocking thu Boer farms.
Tho wood pulp importations from
Canada seem to bo increasing, and a
feeling prevails that nn effort should
be made by Canada tu prevent thu ex-
purtntion of tho raw material and to
encourage the industry in the Dominion, the matter being largely in the
hands of Canada us competition from
other sources is 'decreasing year by

Cupper experts fur February show a
heavy falling off compared with lust

conditions of supply and domand, During 1902 2f> per cent, more copper was
used than ever before. The supply is

from II to 13$ cents fur lake cupper
within little moro than a year Is
nothing extraordinary. Tho marvelous development of electric work the

FRIDAY. MARCH 20 1903.
The greatest sympathy is felt
locally for the relatives of the unfortunate men who met death so
tragically at the Nettie L. on the
7th inst.. Only those who know
the circumstances can realize how
sad was the sudden cutting off of the
career of these brave men.
The late Pat Crilly and Allan
Calder were young men of splendid
physique and with great possibilities of attainment before them, yet
they were cut off just as they had
nicely entered on manhood.
Robert Savage was a man well
known and who had many friends
' but it was unfortunate that no one
' here knew of any relatives.
Edward Gagnon was not so well
known for he was a man who seldom visited town. He had a fond
hope in view, he was working at
the mines not from preference but
from a persistent determination to
break loose from the bonds and
worry of debt and free his little
farm in Quebec from the mortgage
that hung like a millstone about the
necks of himself, wife and family.
The man worked for the last few
years faithfully; never spending a
���cent foolishly, but sending his earnings back to his wife to be applied
on the demon mortgage.
The throngs were broken at last,
only a short time since; the farm
was clear and he was a free man.
He had given notice that the fatal
shift on which he entered the night
ol the 7th was his last at mining.
He made a little sled to haul his
belongings from the mine to Ferguson the next morning and trom
there to depart for home to meet
Ins loved ones. The shift did
prove his last but it also saw the
fleeting of the soul of the man. It
is sad to reflect on these things, it
is difficult to understand what
purpose God had in cutting of these
lives, but God's ways are often
beyond the comprehension of man.
We know personally only P. Crilly
the night foreman, but those who
know the others speak very highly
of them and the good lives that they
lived. There are men who come
west who become intemperate and
coarse; nothing like that can be
said of these men.
The Eagle joins with the Lardeau
people in general in extending
sympathy to the relatives of
the deceased,
The Ontario government is in
distress owing to charges make by
R. R. Gamey, M, P. P., for Mani*
toulin on the floor of the legislature
that he had been bribed to support
the Ross administration and that
payment was made by one of the
ministers. The revelation has
brought the business of the house
to a standstill and there are likely
to be several resignations in consequence. The liberals and conservatives are of one mind that
thorough investigation must be
made and the mutter sifted to the
bottom.   The Globe says:
But whatever tribunal it will be
the first duty of the premier and
his followers, as we believe it will
be their most earnest desire, to see
that the real issue is not obscured
or evaded, and that the Liberal
party is neither usjustly involved in
apparent complicity with wrong
doing, nor betrayed into even seeming connivance at its concealment.
Either the minister of the crown
who is accused, or the member of
the legislative assembly, who is his
acusser, is unworthy of public trust,
and no interest of either political
party must be allowed by the leader
of the government or the leader of
the opposition to come between the
offender and the punishment which
his offence deserves.     In this thing
we are neither Liberals nor Conser-
vates, but Canadians whose first
concern is the independence and
intregity of parliament and unsullied
national honor.
The World says*. The Ontario
ministry has been half dead for the
last five or six years, and the attempt to galvanize it into life has
been the cause of widespread corruption. The West Eigin case was
a horrible example of this. Ballot
boxes have been stuffed, ballots
burned, money spent in corrupting
the electors, and now it appears
that thousands of dollars are available for the purchase of members ot
the legislature. The concern is
rotton, and its destruction would
give us at least an opportunity to
make a start on new lines.
During the investigation into the
Nettie L. disaster the long distance
telephone system was taxed at
times to cope with the rush ot
messages. Many of these were
long press despatches, but we have
not heard of a mistake occurring
and the messages were transmitted
and delivered most promptly,
Therefore we feel justified in com*
mending the good service that is
furnished by the telephone Co.
This was especially noticeable last
week when a heavy snow storm
continued steadily lor four days
and nights.

The throe claims owned by the company are tho "Lardeau
Queen," the "Lardeau King" and the "Lardeau Prince," all abutting
end to end, through which three leads pass the entire length, Bltuated at the head of Lexington ereok, in the Lardeau mining division
of West Kootenav, British Columbia.
These threo claims aro located on tho western slope of Goat Mountain, the lines boing north-westerly and south-oastcrly, and form ono
completo portion of Mineral land of about 1511 acres. Thoy Ito cast
less than four miles up from Pish rivet*.
The group lies in the "Sitting Bull" and -'Wild West" bolts,
two of tho strongest and best known leads In that district, and work
already dono on apjacent oxtcntions hus givon most satisfactory
results as to oxtont of oro bodies and increased values with depth.
Tho formation is slate and schist, lying in an immense limo
dyko, nnd tho croppings of the loads aro generally toppod with houvy
Iron capping and quartz, which gives assays from $8 upon tho
Exploitation consists of two onon cuts along tho surfaco for a
distanco of twenty foet, which exposed a body of argentiferous
galena ovor 8 indies ln width. Tho valuo of this oru body was *25.li0
on the surface, but at a depth of less than threo feot it has Increased
to $40,00. To tap this oro showing nnd tho massive Iron capped
ledgo closo to which lt lies tho present tunnel was commenced and
is now in a distanco of 82 feot. Another 85 foot of orossouttllig
Bhould roach this ledge at a dopth of about 125 feot. When 01 feet
had boon driven, an almoBt'Solltl body of Iron ore throe feot thick
was encountered in tho tunnol lying against a wall of slttto. A
samplo at this point asBayed $77.00 in gold, silver, coppor and lead.
At a distance of 14 feot from this lead a lino body of ore has boon
encountered which, when crosBod, proved to bo.seven and a half feet
wide, carrying the finest looking minoral yet found on tho property.
A third ledgo which contalnB tho rlchost oro and widest surface
showing, will bo reached about February 15th. This ledgo when
encountered, will be from 12 to 15 feot wido and great results aro
Tho proporty has an excellent surface showing. Tho average
assays aro most encouraging, considering tho great width and con-
tlnuiincy of tho leads across the country with such groat width and
prominence of tho surfaco judging from other properties in the noar
vicinity, Borne of which are on the same load ami have developed
very rich oro bodies.
In conclusion I would flay that tho Lardoau Minos are as good as
any, if not tho best, in tho vicinity, and I vurily believe with a
nominal oxponditure, they should bo made dividend paying in a
short time, and I would strongly recommend extensive development
toward that end,
