$2.00 A YEAR.
Opened Up With Good Results
Laing were doing assessment work for
the group on one claim. After tunnel
ling into some 30 feet of snow, which is
very late ln going off this season, they
located the old tunnel and added a few
more feet to Its length, but another
20 or 30 feet bas yet to be driven before
they expect to tap the lead, underneath
the surfaco showing. Work of a more
or less extensive nature will be prosecuted on the little Robert group all
summer. Mr. Lundy expeots to return
to Ferguson in the latter part of July,
when a more detailed plan of work will
be given out,
Everybody Hustling to Get Ready
For toe Railway
THE CKACKSHOT GROW.
As will be noticed by readers of the
Eagle there is much to record this
week in tbe way of actual development
work being done. This sumnoer weather
Is melting the snow very rapidly, and
though later than last season every
thing points to a much  better and
busier camp this year.   Already blasting Is to be heard in every direction
and soon the summits will be dear of
snow and such properties as the Triune
will then be in full swing.   Mining
men do not appear to be  bothering
tbeir heads very much about tha railway, tho silver market or townsitos.
They are now absorbed in an endeavor
to be ready for the railway when it
does come.   There is no boom on, nor
1b one expected, but the steady strides
being made, both in town and upon its
surrounding mining properties, cannot
help but have a stimulating effect with
Investors,   Not only are the old properties increasing their efforts, but several
new companies are commencing work.
The Eaqle wishes to mention right
here, though, that there are all kinds
of men bere, plenty to do the work in
sight.   There is plenty of room  for
prospectors, or men seeking working
bonds or wanting properties to develop,
but as usual  the "labor market" is
glutted.   Altogether the progress for
tho past  week  is very marked, and
ovory day sees men leaving tho pay
roll center with thoir packs, and In
many raises loudcd packhorses.   This
season gives promises of eclipsing all
previous records In tho matter cf now
discoveries, development work and ore
shipments.   This would havo beon the
case years ago had a railway been built
thon instead of now.
G0E$f],054!
The New Triune is Known as tlie
Ruffled Grouse Group
J. B. ManroBs and Henry Jacobson of
Rossland, both old-timers in Ferguson
and the Lardeau, arrived in the pay
roll center a few days ago. They secured supplies ln town and lit up the
north fork for the Crackshot group
where they will do considerable work.
This group sidelines tbe Black Warrior
group���upon which the owner, Thos.
Horn, is now working���and consists of
three claims, the Creewell, Frisco and
Crackshot, located at the head of McDonald creek, and also not very far
from Jas. Comerford's Mountain View
group, which is now under bond for
$50,000.
Mr. Manross has joined the benedicts since his last visit to the camp,
and they may take up their residence
permanently ln the place where the
mines are next month, At any rate
Mr. Manross purchased three busines
lots on Victoria avenue, one of which
he has already sold, and an offer of
$550 cash for the other two, next to S.
Shannon's assay office, he has refused.
If he desides to remove here from
Rossland ho will buy a couple of residential lots and build a house.
Owners Will Commence Slipping
Ore in a Few Weeks
located partly within the limits of the
Circle City townsite, six miles from
Ferguson up tho north fork of Lardeau
creek. It was purchased last fall hy a
company formed by Mr. Welch. Mr.
Welch will size up matters when he
reaches here next month, and the
chances are work will bo pushed along
continuously.
THE METROPOLITAN GROW.
TUB WIDE WEST GROUP.
J. A. Darragh, local superintendent
of the Wido West Cold Mining com'
pany, Is now at work on this property
with a gang of men. The Wide West
group is located on Pool creek, due
north of Ferguson, over the Great
Northern hill. A 183 :oot tunnel was
driven last season, but this year somo
important developments should he
made, a record of which will be found
in the Eaole: from timo to time,
THE TOWSER DEAL IS OtPV,
After six months of varied extensions the Towser syndicate of Chicago
failed to raise tho price, a balance nf
$37,000, so that the Towser deal is off.
The syndicate have done a good deal of
work, and only last weak was J.
Sweeney, who has been in charge of
the property throughout tho winter,
brought down the bill. Ho left Immediately for the Big Bend camp, north
of Revelstoke, to resume placer operations, ho being an old-timer up there,
The owners of the Towser, D. Ferguson and J. Knowles, may do some additional work before tbe season 1b over,
and tho chances are tbey will demonstrate to the bondholders that this
propei'ty Is all right. But the EAQLE
understands that it was not tbeir lack
of faith in tbo property which caused
them to throw up tbo bond, but rather
tbe lack of funds.
THE PRIMROSE GROUP.
Jacob Sohmldt, who has charge of
the work on this group, was in town on
Tuesday on his way back to work, The
tunnol boing driven on tho new lead
discovered last fall is now iu aome 20
feot, with a nice littlo vein of ore still
holding its own. Mr. Schmidt will return via the Gainer creek trail and go
down from the Badshot group, the new
Workings being in the Badshot basin.
LITTLE ROI1ERT GROUP.
Joseph C. Kirkpatrick, who with G.
Lundy of Innisfail,- Alberta, owns the

MAIL SERVICE GONE WRONG
The Exoellont Service of the Past
Two Months Is Unnecoes-
sarily Altered.
For tho past couple of months, up to
the chango of tho Imperial Limited on
tho O. P. R. system, the mail service at
Ferguson was a continual round of
pleasure���not taking into consideration
tho overtime put in by Postmaster
Batho. And there Is positively no reason why it should be otherwise at tbe
pi'OBenttimo. The mall courier used
to come in In tho evening and remain
ovor night, thus giving all concernod
plonty of time In which to answer correspondence. But things have changed.
The mall courier must rush ln at any
time from 3 to 0 p. ni, and after two
short hours hustle away back to Trout
Lake, and there enter Into peaceful
slumber for the night. The courier
has until 5 p. m, to make connections
with the boat at the Landing now, and
there is no need of him leaving Ferguson until the following morning after
arrival as he used to, more particularly
as he had then to make connection
with the boat at 1 p. m. Two hours is
not long enough to receive and answer
mail, especially where there Is no
necessity for It. Just why the
mail courier cannot leave the Land
Ing one morning and Ferguson the foi.
lowing morning, and thus accommodate
ua all, is more than the Eaole can
understand. Of course he may bo fulfilling his contract; no doubt he ia; but
Postoffice Inspector Dorman when last
here certainly led Forgusonites to be-
lleve that tho excellent service recently
rendered would bo continued. Surely
this little difference can soon be
remedied by Mr, Dorman and Mr. Hillman.
II Mail Courier Hillman could leave
Ferguson at 7 a. m. and catoh the 1 p.
in. boat at tho Landing, two weeks ago,
why can't he leave here in the morning
now and catch the 6 p, m. boat?
It looks aa though another Triune had
been discovered. While doing assessment work on the Ruffled Grouse, which
was staked in '98, during the past week,
a remarkable discovery of ore was
made by two of tbe owners on Monday,
samples of which have beon submitted
toS. Shannon, B, A., for assay. The
Ruffled Grouse group consists of two
claims and a fraction, the Ruffled
Grouse, Ironside and Ironside fraction.
It is located on Trout creek, adjoining
tbe Copper Chief, due south of Wm.
Glenn's ranch about -j miles, being in
a splendid location for either rail or
wagon road and freeof natural obstacles.
J. W. Livingston, of Gold Bug fume, a
prospector who haB hunted long and
hard for a "strike," owns a half Inter
est, and It now looks as though his
"stake" was in sight. Tho othor half
(of the Ruffled Grouse) is owned by Ole
Peterson and Andy Ward jointly, while
Peterson and Livingston havo an undivided Interest in tjio rest of the group,
The big ledge, about 40 feet wide, has
an iron capping, and at a point where
it had become broken over, after a fow
days work, tbo big strike was mndo.
Two Bamples were submitted for
assay, the first consisting of galena and
gray copper in a quarts: gangue. This
gives the astonishing result;, of 1757.5
ounces to the ton, or r.t 00 cent:; per
ounce, $1054.50 in silvor alone. The
second assay was carbonates, such as
Lardeaultes are now becoming quite
familiar with, which run 258 ounces, or
$154.80 per ton.
Tho owners havo a fow days assessment work to do up the south fork on
the Silvor Star group, adjoining tiie
Gold Bug on tlie southeast, after which
thoy will leave for the Bullied Grouse
and commence taking out ore for shipment. Thoy have nearly a ton out already, but unfortunately havo boen
throwing ttelr carbonates down tho
hill side.
Just how many more grassroot high-
grade ore producers will be discovered
tbis season in this district is hard to
say. The Rullled Crouso can ship oro
which will cuBlly run an average of
$400 to tlio ton, and no prospectors In
the province aro moro entitled to suoh
good fortune than Jiose old-time
stnyors, Messrs. Livingston, Peterson
and Ward.
Frank Holten, who with & force of
men, is working the Metropolitan, was
in town for a few hours on Sunday, and
brings news of progress. Tho crosscut tunnel which was started at a point
ju3t below soveral small veinBOf high-
grade ore, showing on the surface, is
now in some 17 feet, the first stringer
being intersected at the 12-foot point,
and from here Mr. Holten sacked some
ore which cannot fail to please thc
owners, a small sample of which he
brought down. The stringer is just as
true at the bottom of the tunnel as at
the surface, and owing to its continuity
and high-grade ore, it looks well for
the remainder of these small veins,
which will be cross-cut and afterwards
drifted upon both ways this season.
Chas. W. McCrossan, the managing director of Minneapolis, who was here a
few days, and loft for Victoria, B. C,
was unexpectedly called home, but he
will return to the camp about August
1st, accompanied by a number of the
eastern shareholders in the company.
S. Shannon, B. A., is acting as local
superintendent for both the Metropolitan and Sunset groups.
The Lade and
Produce Bi? Gold Values
THE LONE STAR GROUr.
bis Part of tie Camp is in the
This group, consisting of three
claims, the Threo Friends, Black Hawk
and Lone Star, situate on Nettie L,
mountain, adjoining the Gloosecap
group, has recently changod hands, a
company having been formed in Toledo,
Ohio, for that purpose. The first of
throe payments was paid over through
the Imperial bank last woek, and tho
second one falls due on July 1st. A
40-foot tunnel was driven two season's
ago, but another 250 feet has been arranged for which will be c-mmencod
upon next week. A. E, Welch, of London, Ont., will be hero in a few weeks
to look after this and his many other
mining interests here.
The dullness of the silver market
may after all be a good thing for the
Lardeau district in some ways. We
will now have prospectors seeking for
gold values, and past events prove that
the camp will yet produce some gold
mines. The Lade group, and the increasing values in our silver-lead
properties, is a clincher to this statement. There is no doubt but that the
Fish creek belt, just over the Great
Northern hill from us, extends all tho
way through this camp, and ledge natter which bas heretofore been passed
over by prospectors looking for silver-
lead showings, will receivo moro attention. This cannot fail to do good, aud
it is easily within the range of possibilities that much ground now being
walked over will later on be the scene
of busy stamp mills or cynide plants.
No other mining district in the province offers such possibilities to the
prospector. Nor can an investor strike
a better camp, it judicious, to legitimately expend his money in tbe development and production of ournatural
resources. Gold is king, and the
Eagle foels confident that the Lade
and othor gold properties in this camp
will be shipping high-grade ore before
tho snow Hies. At any rato the discoveries ;md ultimate outcome of the
presont Ftrong local Interest will bo recorded with interest.
THE HELLO SYSTEM REPAIRED
Telephone Line Between Here and
Arrowhead Being Much
Improved.
TO WORK ON THK CHOHWE1.L.
E. M. Morgan, who has spent the last
six months in the Slocan, is now back
to the Lardeau, "tho best of the
bunch," as lie says, and reports "the
Lardeau" to bo quite the fashion in
outside points. He thinks that next
month will see a move by many in this
direction. Mr, Morgan as ono of the
interested Ih the Cromwell group, will,
with the others, do some work this
summer. Indeed if the Warner-Miller
syndicate fail to take up thoir bond,
the owners will wade right in and get
out and ship the oro themselves.
Though poor men, .rather than he
stuck, thoy will produce their own
capital.
THE COMSTOCK OROUP.
S. Shannon, B, A., has received instructions from A. K. Welch, managing
director of tlio Comstock company, to
award A. J. Gordon a contract for driving 100 feet of tunnol at once, and accordingly Messrs. Shannon and Gordon
left for the property yesterday to begin
operations,   The Comstock group is

Manager Wm. Cowan will install

BUYING THEIR
EXPERIENCE
Some times a personfeels like saying: it serves them right-let them
take lots of it���but most of them
are more to be pitied than laughed
at. We refer to the promiscuous
investor in mining stock, without
first acquiring absolutely necessary
information as to the merits of the
proposition in question. These
same investors would take a fit
were they asked to invest in a piece
of realty or a commercial undertaking of a business nature, without
lirst seeing it, or making ordinary
enquiries; but why they will continue
to invest in any old kind of stock
without the same precaution is certainly a puzzler to the average experienced westerner. When, the
Eagle says enquiring into the merits of a properly or stock it does
not mean a letter to a resident of
the camp, without even a postage
stamp enclosed, asking for all kinds
of information, but never breathing
that there is no recompensation
forthcoming. People are not here
for their health, and it takes time
and money to visit properties, which
is the only way the informant can
give reliable information. The
iiverage investor in mining stocks,
in the east, is a cheap guy, who is
looking for something for nothing.
And you may depend upon it he will
surely receive his just remuneration
in the long run. It pays to make
judicious enquiry and personal investigation before buying mining
stocks. There will be more than
one poor innocent cussing the Lardeau camp ���instead of the promoter
-inside of two years. This kind
of mining doesn't pay, either the
camp or the investor ultimately.
P.ut most people have to buy their
experience. And here we keep it
on tap.
Too many mere "prospects" are
dubbed as mines,,and turned over
by promoters to companies at mine

The least any newspaper, with any
pretention of being fair, can do, is to
allow the Individual attacked the privilege of a reply in tbe same medium.
This privilege the Topic has deprived
D. L. Clink of.
If we had only our own simple wants
to think abont we would be content to
go cheerfully along living on canary
seed upheld by righteousness of purpose and cheered by popular approval,
but the printer has to have his bill
paid every four weeks or he will not
print.���The Outlook.
The winds may blow, the trees fall,
our whiskey be bad, the snow deep, and
flood-escape llagstaffs be scarce in the
placo where the "tallies are; but the
place where wo bury our dead���an
ideal cemetery���sleeps peacefully on.
As a recent new arrival hero says:
"Shure atos the most beautifullest
corpse ground what I ever seed, an not

be civered up in such a lonesome spot!11

As will bo noticed elsewhere in this
issue S. Shannon, B. A., of this place
was married at Cedarville, Ont., on
June 5th, to Miss Jennie Challenger, of
that place, with only immediate friends
of both present. Mr. and Mrs. Shannon left the following morning for
Toronto and returned to Ferguson on
Thursday evening last, immediately
tajttag up their residence ln tbe comfortable new house just completed for
the occasion. Here Is the best wishes
of tbe Eaole, Mr. Shannon to you and
your charming bride. Mr. and Mra.
Shannon wero given a real western reception on Friday evening, who very
liberally reciprocated. Not only was
Mrs. Shannon acquainted with a western! method'of showing appreciation,
but while tho happy couple were out
for a stroll on Saturday evoning, a
short way up the north fork road, a big
black bear put In an appearance and
also desired to welcome them. There
was no reciprocation in this case. A
similar experience might not be encountered in a lifetime, as local hunters
well know.
A WHOLE FLOWKK OAKDKN.
The Lardeau Eaole is mistaken.
The Tribune has not stated tbat an
opinion of a newspaper printed, in a
one-horso town was valueless. What
tbe Tribune did state was tbat too
many such papers "slated" tho legislature without having read a single Act
passed by that body. Tbe brightest
papers published in British Columbia
to-day are printed in one-horso towns.
The Lardeau Eaole, the Sanson
Paystreak, and tbo Now Denver Ledgo
are all sparkling and newsy; so far
ahead of the othor weeklies in the
provinco that comparisons would be
odious.

Doupo, of Winnipeg, is down at Selkirk, the C, P. R. town at the foot of

of course moro or less speculation 1b

Robt. Gordon of tbe Rovelstoke brass

Ferguson the biggest and

Ferguson is so located at the

hill to the north, the Nettie
L. to the east, and the
Triune-Silver Cup hill   to
k*4 the south, that it at once
becomes the natural supply and pay roll centre.
The C. P. R. Lardeau branch
is now on the way, and
must soon come after Lardeau's ore. When it

grade ores.
