$2 a Year In advance
fie Mining Industry
The Triune.
Some interesting figures and facts
may be gleaned  from  the   recent
publication issued by the provincial
department of mines for the half-
aear ending June  30th.    It proves
that we are advancing rapidly, as
the increase ot tonnage in silver and
lead is  greatly in evidence.    If we
take the tonnage of output for the
first six months of  1904 we shall
find it 697,213  tons, and that for
the whole of  1903  was   1,286,176
tons.    If the output continues at
the same  rate for   the remaining
half of the  present year the total
would be 1,394,426 tons, or 108,250
more than  in   1903.   There  is no
doubt  ot the tonnage equalling the
first half year, rather should it show
a great increase.
a ne output ot  silver for the first
halt    of   the    present   year   was
2,037,061 ozs,, as against 2,996,204
for the whole of 1903, thus we see
that our output for the remaining
six   months has only to be 896,143
ozs. in order to equal the  whole of
1903.   It appears absolutely certain
that the output will be considerably
larger.    The  figures  for the  lead
output show us 16,500,000 against
18,089,285 pounds for the whole of
The production ofthe gold-copper
mines will be much heavier than
hitherto. The large concentrating
and chloridising plant of the Silver
Cup tyines, Ltd., the Triune and
several other local shippers will appreciably swell the grand total ot
the_min.ng output for 1904.
A marvellous change has taken
place in silver-lead mining of late.
A few months as?o this important
section of the mining industry was
languishing, and the production
had fallen very low. The bounty
on lead mined and smelted in
. Canada granted by th: Dominion
Government in order to increase
the lead production, so that mnntt
factories of the products of lead
might be started and put on their
feet in this country, is responsible
for this. The output of silver-lead
was never been larger than it is at
present. ,
The activity which now prevails
in mining circles will gather impetus
with each suceeding month until it
is placed on a sound footing. New
capital is coming in, more will fol-
* low,r~and as mining has been re-
" duced to more of a science than it
was during the wild-ratting days
there will be more profit for the investor, and where there is profit
jnany investors will always be found.

The Eagle man made the nine
mile trip to the Triune early this
week. Leaving Ferguson at 8 a.m.
and calling at several properties en
route, the new Triune wagon road
near the 10-Mile Hotel was struck
at 11 a.m., and here were sacks of
ore brought down by teamster Anderson. The lower terminal cabins
were shortly reached, and there the
"bird" had to relate the news of
the'world before being allowed to
proceed further. After a very hard
climb up the Triune mountain, the
cabin and bunk-house were sighted,
and an hour later a voracious bird
was playing sad havoc among the
good things provided by cook Edwards. Supt. Dodds acted as guide,
mentor and friend throughout the
remainder of the visit, and as we
threaded our way up this rugged
peak, with the aid of a rope, the
writer looked neither up nor i.nm��j
l_. -i:~i,oh rto.^ily on and hugged
the rope, with many doubts as to
the next appearance of the brightest,
newsiest local paper. , Arrived at
a safer point for observation, while
regaining breath, the writer had a
grand panoramic view of the wild
mountainous country. Proceeding
to the mouth of the first tunnel we
were handed glims, and in a few
minutes had reached well into the
interior. An examination of the
walls satisfied us that the mountain
was literally metal. At this point
ore is being received in sacks at
the end of a chute of some 140 feet
long, from where it is removed to
the small tram outside. Ascending
the up-raise of 140 feet we came to
the spot from where the $200 ore is
being taken. It certainly is a wonderful ledge, and almost all ot it is
clean ore. Men are at work at all
points on development work, carpentering, ore-sorting, mining, laying rails for the bucket trams, etc.,
and strict attention is being devoted
to economy and safety. In another
tunnel we were shown the profuse
amount of rich soft carbonates
which are assaying away up in gold
values. We were also taken to
No. 3 tunnel, whick is a recent development, and which Mr. Dodds
informed us bore every indication
of further enhancing the fame of
the Triune.
After regaining the glorious sunshine the "bird" presented a very
bedraggled appearance, and a descent was made with the heart of the
Eagle beating and smashing all
previous records. " Put your feet
firmly down and hold tight to the
rope," was the good advice ten
dered, and the ordeal was safely
passed���less one or two attacks in
the rear. Whilst waiting for the
supper bell, we had lots of time to
cogitate on the respective advantages of mining and printing, and
after partaking of a bounteous
spread, leave-taking was the order,
with many thanks from our representative for the hospitality shown
and "an opportunity of inspection

No arrests have yet boon mado in
connection with the recent burglary at
Camborne, although a clue Is being
worked on and a haul Is expected.
Mr. John W. Cook, hailing from
Ontario, paid the Eagle, a visit on
Tuesday last. The purport of his
visit to this part ot the continent
was to put through, if possible, a
big lumber deal at Nelson, B.C.,
negotiations tor which were satisfactorily arranged last week.
Mr. Cook laughingly told our
representative that much advice has
been gratuitously given him by his
well-wishers for his guidance during
his sojourn in the Lardeau. But
he was original enough to desire a
better acquaintance with a country
which was steadfastly boosted on
the one hand and sadly deprecated
on the other. Mr. Cook had a
fund of interesting knowledge to
impart ot the feeling of Easterners
towards certain companies whose
dealings have left us in very had
odor. These people are our Jonahs,
and the sooner they cut adrift from
us, the sooner will capital of honesi
men lean this way. At present
their tactics are suspicious, and we
trust the warning screech of the
Eagle will be heeded by Eastern
readers. It is not in our province
to make specific mention of names,
but when enquirers through the post
seek information of wild-cats, it is
time for the weapon to be placed in
the enquirers hands. We are
pleased to note, and it is very gratifying to Lardeauites to mark, thai
the mist is lifting, but a cloud, a
tiny black cloud is still hovering
above our heads. A well directed
shot will break that cloud, and with
it the last of the wild-catter, whose
tactics are nauseous, levants.
Mr. Cook was greatly astonished
at the vast wealth of the country,
and we are pleased to be in a position to give the lie direct to vandals
who declare the Lardeau has no
value at depth. Our representative
proudly pointed to the Triune
which has now been mined for foot
years, and the famous ore-producer
is growing richer every day ; to the
Nettie L., originally a concern rate
proposition, but now a shipper of
rich clean ore ; to the Silver Cup,
which although temporarily crippled
by the recent disastrous snowslide,
has achieved a great name ns a
producer of high values at depth.
On Monday Mr. Cook paid
visit to the Mill at Five-Mile, to
the Winslow group, the scene of
the recent gold excitement, and to
several other properties. On Wednesday he reached Camborne, where
Mr. B. Crilley piloted him through

Not many years ago Prof. Wnlton, of
London, than whom there Is no fairer
man to the prospector and mine owner,
wns shown a piece of yellow porphyry
containing visible specks of native
gold. " Ah I" said the professor,
" gold in yellow porphyry I" " Is
that a (avertible Indication ?" asked
tho simple man. "Indication, my boy,
nevermind the Indication; when you

A 84,000 Gold Brick.
A gold-brick reported to be worth*
about $4,000, says the Camborne
Miner, the result ol the past so'
days' run of the Goldfinch mill, wns
taken out on Saturday by -\. F,
Rosenberger. This is the first
brick turned out by this mill sinco
last January, ftom which time until the 13th of July the mill was out
of commission. Development work
has been in progress on the Goldfinch properly for some months
past, and it is said lhat rich ore has
been encountered. Considering
that the bulk of lhe ore treated wns
taken from open surface cuts, the
amount of gold obtained at the cleanup gives one an idea of the value of
the property.
The Mammoth.
The contract to cut and grade
the three-mile trail from the wagon
road to the Mammoth group has
been awarded to J. J. McKinnon of
Poplar. The wprk is to be com-
pleted by the end of September;
when ore shipments will be made.
An order for 1,500 ore sticks has
been filled.
Hecla and Hecla Frac.
These claims, which are located
on Rapid creek were bonded this
week by Messrs. Chism and Hen- \
drix to E. C. Desante, John Ellet-
sich and Cap. Race of Spokane.
The terms of the bond are $1,000
in 60 days, 81,500 in 90 days, and
the balance in 120 days.
The Brow.
This property, which is situated
on the Nettie L. hill, with proper
management, should prove a good
investment. The claim is held by
Geo. Lembke, Revelstoke, and
others. About $-5000 worth of development work has been done thus
far. 'There is a lead of oxidized
iron which looks very promising for
some 300 feet, and a quartz lead of
50 feet carrying gold values. With
capital at'the buck of a property of
this desctiption we do not hesitate
to aver that good returns to Ihe
coffers ol the investors would accrue.
May Queen.
This property on Silver Cup hill
is likely to be a shipper before many
weeks are passed. Ed. Hillman
has a number of men stripping the
ledge for 17 feet, nnd some good
concentrating ore has been encountered.
The Rambler.
James Livingstone has here a property which we hold in very high
esteem. Our representative paid n
visit to the embryonic mine this
week, and the tunnel which Livingstone is driving through the hard
rock is being progressed with. It
is expected that the main body of
clean ore will be reached at the end
of August. Lardeau Eagle

' Btrsnnss,
Fih'ance may be defined as the
art of doing business with other
people's money. A moment's reflection will show Aow far this is
true. The great bulk of the commerce of the world is carried with
borrowed money.- The business
house whose capital is large enough
to enable' it to conduct its trade
without borrowing is rare indeed.
Banks would not exist if this were
not (rUe. Bankers are brokers in
credits, Middlemen between lenders
and borrowers. The proportion of
borrowed money to capital in any
line of business greatly varies. The
speculator, as a rule, puts in lo per
cent of the capital required in the
transaction and borrows 90 per
cent. The merchant, as a rule in"
vests a larger percentage of his own
capital. All great enterprises, such
as railroads and big industrial corporations, are possible only by reason of the investments by a targe
number of different persons in the
stocks and bonds of the corpora*
tions. A few men conduct and control these operations; many contribute to them. They are, in fact,
'enterprises carried on with other
people's money. The financier is
the man who obtains the capital for
these big enterprises, secures the
money of countless investors for
It is important to keep this fundamental truth constantly in mind,
for when it is fully grasped it
changes the whole aspect of business. When the conscientious man
of affairs comprehends fully the immense significance of the fact that
he is conducting his business with
the money of other people, his point
of view must inevitably change.
He is no longer engaged in a merely selfish pursuit. He is indeed
working for himself, but working
for other people. Business, therefore has become a trust in the best
meaning of the word. The business man is a trustee of other
people's wealth. He is a confidential agent for the public. His responsibilities may .be regarded as
almost sacred, for they involve the
well-being, physical, moral and
spiritual of many other people.
This, then, gives a higher signi*
ficance to the business_life. For
tnerly, when commerce was conducted on a more nnrrow scale, and
when the capital required was small,
the business man missed that moral
elevation which now comes *6 him
when he remembers that he is
the trustee for multitudes of his fellow men, that in employing their
money he is ministering to them.
If he fails in his trust they suffer.
It he succeeds they share in his
If a man if worjiihg with hit
own and for his own only, he may
perhaps be pardoned if he risks all,
even himself, in his venture. But
when a man discovers tbat he is
working with the money of others,
and for their interests as well as
his own, he should be sobered by
the responsibility. He should find
that he is bound by higher ethical
standards. The growth of modern
business in the direction of a larger
trusteeship of wealth, therefore, demands of those in control, a finer
sense of their responsibilities to
others as being far more important
than any mere selfish interests.���

TIEADERS of the " Lardeau Eagle " note the
*f\ following concerning one of our Leading Producing'Mines near Ferguson, B.C., and which has had a
g<Kat name from its discovery five years ago. Situated 9
miles S.E. of Ferguson at tthft h,ead of the great mining basin
at the source of Triune creek is the property known as The
Triune, consisting of 200 acres npw owned and nearly
paid for by the Metropolitan Gold ar\d Silver Mining Co.,
Ltd., whose head office is at Minneapolis, Minn., and
mining office at Ferguson, B. C. The Company already
had 400 acres 9 miles north of Ferguson on the North Fork
of the Lardeau, also a good mining property, when it
seagirt and purchased The Triune in 1902, the same year
mining and selling over $9,000 worth high-grade gold and
silver ore from The Triune. In the 90 days' summer
working in 1903 we mined .and sold to the Canadian Smelting Works, Trail, B.C., $i6,ooo"wor.h of o�� frum Th��
Triune, running $9.50 per ton in gold, $10.50 in lead, and
$123.00 silver, making an average value of $143.00 per ton
in 20-tort car load lots for the entire season. We are now
operating The Triune with 20 men mining and delivering
ore to Trout Lake City, where we load on the Canadian
Pacific Railroad's boats and send to the smelter at Trail,
B. C. We now keep two-thirds of our men on new development work : extending tunnel No. 1, and on new tunnel
No. 3, while we also mine and ship a little over 7 tpj>s of
this high-grade ore per week.
We shipped from Trout Lake one car load of 20 tons
July 30, and will ship another car of same size about Aug.
10. We have let the contract and have partially constructed
a new Double Wire Standard Tramway at The Triune,
costing us $2o;ooo, to enable us to handle larger amounts
of ore per day, -as the mine demands larger output facilities,
and we want the tram done this year to enable us to ship
from 5 to 10 tons per day right through the year.
We need more money than present ore-shipments furnish during this month. Hence the Directors have now
put upon the market a limited amount of treasury stock at
below par. Par value $1.00 per share. We now have over
1,400 stockholders.
Shares of our Treasury Stock in amounts of from
50 Shares up will be sold if bought and paid for
during August for SOc. per share until such funds
sufficient to pay the unpaid Tramway payments are in
hand, when the sale will be stopped, and Funds or
Orders coming too late will be promptly returned to the

The deepest sympathy ol everyone
will bo oxtended to Mr. John Bull, of
Arrowhead. Mr. Bull's family are residents ol Slocan City, und Mr. Bull
haB lately opened up a store at Arrowhead. It appears that his children
were bathing on the sandy bench in
front of the station at Slocan City, and
a young child, May, got out ol her
depth alongside a barge, und her sister
Nettle went to hor assistance. The
younger child reached the shore in
safety, but wo sadly relate that her
heroic sister perished. Tbe body was
recovered an hour later.
Onbe when returning from court of
session * a famous Canadian judge
noticed an old Irish (arm help who was
about to take a third-class ticket to tbe
next tewn. He paid his lare and took
him into his sleeper, The conversation soon turned upon thp relative
merits of Canada and Ireland. As the
train rolled onthrough a sea of waving
grain the judge said, "Well, Mike,
you are evidently admiring' the country. Far away above old Ireland this,
isn't it?" The old man shook his
head. "Come, come, now," said tho
judge--" sursly this a finer country in
every way 1 For instance, yo'u would
be a long -time in Ireland before you
would enjoy tbe honor ol riding In
tbe company of a judge." " yes," replied Mike. " and you'd be a long time
in Oireland afore they'd* make yo a
judge I"

Batho," tho lessee. Mr. C. H, Little
as master of ceremonies filled that
position' creditably. The orchestra
was conducted ln a pleasing manner by
Miss Kate Edwards. Dancing was
kept up until it lato hour, and while
the last strains of " Tho Blue Danube "
were dyi'rtg a'wfcy, the other fellow
klB6ed the other fellow's girl, tiny
hands were squeezed, and all wore as
happy as diclt'y birds. One and all
left with the conviction that it was
quite tho jolHeBt event of the year.
A* local kid of Borne five summers,
to wit, Boyd Lauder, must have his.ad*

is heard. Strong men turn pale, and
hysterical women scream aB with bulging eyes and dilated nostrils a horse
approaches at a tremendous bat, and
our young hero is thrown almost at the
feet of the Eagle man. The youngster
loll heavily among some timber, and it
seems almost a miracle that no Injuries

by his experience, the tot almost be-
seeched the Eagle man to let him go
catch tho bronc, which, ere this, had
concluded its mad career alone. With
his hand firmly cinched in the claw ol
the Eagle our local Dick Turpln was
