Smelters and Railways Are Coming
Our Way.
Never Before Was There So Much
Activity in the Camp.���A Great
Season Before Us.-Capital Will
Be Free and Prospeotors Ready
to Meet Them Half Way.
Silver Belt Oroup.
This group consists of three full
kind mineral claims, viz.; Silver
Belt, Agnes and Whistler. They are
owned jointly and proportionately as
follows: H. H. Johnstone i interest,
O. K. Morton f interest, M. H. Dobie
t interest. The property is situated
on Brown creek up the south fork of
the Lardeau, about ten miles from
Ferguson, over a fairly good road and
trail. The Agnes and Silver Belt
lie on the south bank and the Whistler
immediately opposite the Agnes on
the north bank. There is a good
supply of timber for all purposes.
Two. distinct veins exist on these
claims, one of which varies from 3 to
S feet in width and carries high grade
galena ore with a little gold and
Copper values, and runs through the
Silver Belt. The other crosses the
Agnes and Whistler claims, and is
��� quarts ledge 8 feet wide, yielding
Mly gold values on the surface. The
matrix ((decomposed limestone, with
(���leu soottered through it, lies
between a hanging wall of slate and
limestone footwall, dipping northeast
���t a heavy angle. About 160 feet
from the north end of the Silver Belt
��� stringer of ore 18 inches in width
mos Into the main vein, and also dips
toward it on the east side, then 100
feet further north on the vein a
stringer four lnohes wide enters on
the west side,  while 30 feet further
has generously supplied with water,
and water-power, also a boundless
supply of fine timber. With trails
and development, this section of
country will be one of the largest
producers of precious metal In Canada.
The Silver Oroup.
The properties of the Standard Oold
Mines of B. C, limited, consists of six
claims, tho May field, Brandon, West
York, Renound, and No.Sand 6 known
as the Silver group. The first three
named are located west of the Arrow
lakes In the vicinity of Brooklyn, and
the Renound on Kootenay river, about
half way between Robson and Slocan
river. Nos. 5 and 6, the Silver group,
are located on the Duncan slope be'
'tween Hall and Cariboo creeks and
only a short distance from the surveyed
route of the proposed K. & L. D. rail
way. Surface assays taken from the
Silver group run $41.84 In gold, silver
and lead, and a later one went gold
$3.20, copper $1.80, silver $34.76, lead
���44.64, total $84.30. The company have
built a trail six miles in length from
the government trail at the mouth of
Hall oreek up to the property, assisted
by the Imperial Cold Mines of B. C,
who also hold promising interests on
the now famous Duncan slope. Buildings necessary for use in the development ot the property .have been erected. It might be mentioned that both
the claims in the Silver group are the
regulation size. The Twork already
done consists of two .shafts and two or
three crosscuts, the results of which
has proved very satisfactory to the
owners. Not being able to get supplies
in last fall before the snow came work
had to be suspended forthe winter, but
under the shrewd direction of J. W.
Westfall a force will be put to work as
soon as possible this spring.
J.. W. Westfall Sizes Up the Outlook
For This Season.
The Hob Boy Minos.
J. W. Westfall, superintendent of
the   Scottish-Canadian   Mining    &
Development Co. limited, sent a sack
of ore taken from the last crosscut in
_ his     property,    to   the    managing

which gives it a striking similarity to
the Nettle L. and Silver Cup ores.
There is now 233 feet of completed
tunnel work on this property, shewing
up ore in three places underground,
the largest and riohest strike having
been made in the last drift where the
men, who have completed their
contract, encountered ore within nine
feet of where they started drifting in
from the main tunnel. Work will be
continued by the company this spring
and with a few months' more development, the advent of transportation
and thoroughly practical management,
such as has been evinced In the past,
the Rob Roy mines will be a second
Nettie L. This company's B. C.
office,, as well as the others which Mr.
Westfall is superintending, will be
established in Ferguson this season,
and as in the past their supplies will
be furnished from this point
It Is quite reasonable to
te good body of shipping ore.
Only surface work has been done to
'data in opening up the several
stringers or vein feeders, and a drift
fees bean started, whioh will be pushed
forward this season, on the main vein
to Intersect the junotion with the No. 1
stringer at ��� depth of about 70 feet.
Considerable open cutting has been
done here and the drift at present is
not in more than 16 feet, but an
exosedligly good shewing of ledge
matter with oarbouates, smalt galena
Stringers and fine galena disseminated through it, has been exposed. This
drift will require to be driven another
tO feet to cat tbe No. 1 stringer, but
before that point is reached, galena
will be found in a more combined
Mate and shipping ore obtained. The
stringers above will pay to work them
whan depth is obtained by this tunnel,
and tbe various stringers along with
the matter In the vein will be combined in one when another 180 feet
has been driven, whioh will possibly
take place this season.
Horn Ledge.
This lodge is situated at the head-
of the north fork of the
l river, and there are upwards
���f twenty claims staked on it Of the
following good claims very little is
read onheard, viz., The Boss, Jenny
Lind, Ski, Rob Roy, Highland Chief,
Centre Star, Yankee Girl, Iron Horse,
Canadian Girl, Celtic and others.
The trend of this vein is northwest and
southeast, and dips 65 degrees to the
east The vein shews a big Iron
napping carrying galena, and whenever any work bas been done and the
oapplng removed, large bodies of ore
are exposed. Assays of ore made from
different claims give from 60 to 130
ounces silver, upwards of 60 per cent,
lead, and $4 gold. The vein varies
from two to five feet in width. It
appears on the slope of the Little
Duncan, and a group of three claims
staked on It are known as the Holy
Moses group. Thenoe across Gainer
oreek, the head of the south fork of
Lardeau oreek, then over the summit
and across tbe headwaters of Haley
ereek, and down the west side of Lake
Oreek, in all a distance of about twenty
miles, What Is needed to bring the
above mentioned claims Into the front
rank as producers Is the Investment
of capital In the construction of
"works" to treat the ore, at the mouth
of either Gainer oreek, Surprise creek,
Pass creek, or at Ferguson. That
portion    of     this    district    nature
The Oliver Qaem.
Ifsnyone thinks for a moment that
the Great Northern hill has not the
wherewithal for becoming one of the
greatest producers in this camp a visit
to the Silver Queen will convince the
most sceptical to the contrary. The
development of this property has been
progressing steadily all winter. A
crosscut tunnel has been driven which
taps the lead at a depth of from 160 to
200 feet. The load at this point is in
the neighborhood of four feet in width.
A drift on the lead Is now In over 100
feet with from 3 to 4 feet of ore continuous the whole length of tbo drift
Of this about one foot is practically
olean ore and the balance of a concentrating nature. The natural facilities
present for handling this ore and the
acoessablllty of tbe property makes
this one of the most desirable propositions in the camp, The Ragle
understands that it is the intention of
the company to ereot reduction works
as soon as sufficient development work
Is done to keep a gang of men stopelng.
If a smelter were erected at> Ferguson
all the ore on the Great Northern bill
could be landed at this placo for less
than a dollar a ton.
Transportation Will Be Provided.
{Our Immense Water Power Will
Be Utilized, Ore Will Be Got Out
and Treated in the District, and
There's No Wildoat Companies.
.|T, W. Westfall, in company with M.
L. Moyer the smelter man, was up
from the Lake on Saturday looking
over tbe townsite and 'sizing up our
available water power so contiguous
to the town. In conversation with Mr,
Westfall he Bald he was in a position
to state, from an official source, that
railroad construction would be active
this year, by the C. P. R, up the Lardeau and the K. & L. D. up the Duncan. Transportation will be furnished
to the different parts of the district
now coming into prominence as fast as
needed, and as to the treatment of our
ores, says Mr. Westfall, there need be
no uneasiness on that score, as there
Is now different parties maturing plans
for Immediate action. Our water
power, which is unlimited, will soon
be harnessed and> turnjng powerful
machinery necessary to cheapen devel
opment and prepare our produots for
smelting and refining. Mr. Westfall
states that he is in correspondence
with capitalists in different eastern
cities, who Intend visiting this section
of the country with a view to investment. It is his opinion that there will
be any amount of capital forthcoming
this season to develop tbe many promising prospects in this district. And
another feature he mentioned, with
which the Eagle heartily agrees, is
tho fact that there is no wlldcatting.
The companies operating have come in
and made their selections with care
and deliberation and in most oases
nrvet." Uux ' In a (systematic dev-
."..'i^. -. in ��--,- ,*>operilns. msov of
whiotf are now* shipping, and others
will be in the near future. And not
one failure is there to record to date,
in Mir. Westfall's opinion we are on
the very threshold of great prosperity
in this entire district. Asked as to the
further development of the Scottish-
Canadian's properties, a few miles east
of Ferguson, the Eagle was Informed
that work would certainly be continued
and on a much larger scale. But there
will only be a small force kept at work
until the roads and trails are open.
The property is developing excellently
and gives great promise of becoming a
wonderful mine. Supt Westfall has
advised the directorate to push devel-
ment work thoroughly while awaiting
transportation facilities.
Particulars Can Not Yet Be Mado
Public, But She's a Go.
Small Transfers Taking Place Even
Now.-Several Large [Deals Are
Pending.���Progress .on the Nottie
L., and Other Promising Claims
In the Ferguson Distriot.
The Nettle t.
Tho Netie L. force is bolnglncroanod
almost daily and four men are now
kept busy sacking ore. Tho oro
houses, both at the mine and Ferguson,
are nearly filled, awaiting transportation. Manager Pool is putting on
miners as quickly as there is a place
to work them to advantage. Development 1b being pushed in all the
workings, and only the ore directly
encountered is put out, the balance
being left In place uutil transportation
or smelter facilities are provided. If
a few more properties were worked on
this plan, the long wait for connection
with the outside world would not be
far distant. The lower tunnel has so
drained the upper workings that a
discontinuance of work will not be
necessary this spring, as last. The
Nettie L, will employ over a hundred
men a year hence at the present rate,
$3.50 per eight-hour shift. It might
just be noted that Manager Pool had.
the eight-bour law In vogue before
there was any legislation of this kind
In the province. Practical managers,
good miners, and unlimited ore bodies
make a profitable combination, and
in the Nettie L. this Is tbe happy state
of affairs.
$11,01)0. payable In one year In four
orjual instalments' of three months
The group consists of tlio Siesta,
Manila, Louisa and Zlugarl. Develop
rannt work will bo commenced by the
now owners at once.
Union Jack Group.
H. Carter was down from the Union
Jack for supplies on Sunday. He and
L. Thompson are continuing tbe crosscut tunnel. The Union Jack is only
3} miles up the north fork from
Ferguson, and the Silver Cup wagon
road goes right over It, thus making
It very easy to get In supplies at any
time. The owners intend to make a
test shipment this season.
aUnlas> Man Coming To Look Over The
Dlitrlet.-Kallwer Baee For Tho
Transportation Boilneu.
Several well known mining men
from Chicago, Philadelphia, Pittsburg, New York, Brentford, Toronto,
Winnipeg, Rossland and other
commercial centres have already
made known their Intention of
coming in to look over this district as
soon as (boy Ret word that the hills
are clear of snow. Their object in
visiting the country li to see what it
has to offer In the way of mineral
wealth development. They Intend, If
the conditions are favorable, to make
the Lardeau their field of operation
in this .province. Copies of the
Eagle have been sent to many of
of them, and In writing they have
expressed surprise at the large amount
of development work being done with
good results, In this camp. The
resource* of this dtstrlot will He
dormant'no longer. With the deter-
minatlo��on the part of miners and
prospeotors to develop their own
properties Into young mines, and the
aid of printer's Ink, the attention of
legitimate investors will soon be
dlreoted'this way.
While in Kaslo recently a business
man from Ferguson was assured by
one of the Great Northern officials
that their toad would be commenced
as soon aa the snow would permit.
"In fact," said he,  "we would have
{mshed onr line through last year had
6 not been for the unsettled state of
affairs In the mining and labor
spheres." The application for an
extension of time in which to complete
the C. P. R., making connection
between Revelstoke on the main line
and Nelson on the Crow's Nest, has
been withdrawn, and President
Shaughnessy has assured us that
their line will be built, so that taking
it all In all, we have good reasons for
feeling that a bright and prosperous
season Is now before us.
St. Elmo Group.
One of the promising properties in
this camp is the St. Elmo. This claim
together with the Yankee makes up
'.he St. Elmo group, which adjoins the
Greet, wurtnein to tho northwest. During the greater part ot tno winter two
men were engaged doing development
work and taking out ore. They made
a shipment a year ago of five tons and
the returns gave the satisfactory result
of 113 ounces silver, $3.80 gold and
$17.09 lead, making a total value per
ton of $85.18. The work done on this
property up to the present consists of
a tunnel on the vein 70 feet in length
and an open cut of 40 feet. At the end
of this open cut anotber tunnel has
been commenced to crosscut the vein
at a depth of 125 feet, and It is expected
when this is completed avery fine body
of ore will be available for shipping.
The width of the ore body from which
the five-ton shipment was made is
about 18 Inches and as far as present
indications go, gives promise of increasing In bulk as the work progresses.
Rugh McPherson of Trout Lake City,
and others, are the owners.

Speaking at Victoria a fow nights
ago in his opening campaign addross
Hon. Joseph Martin, in reference to
tho delayed elections for tho purpose
oflrovlsing thoivoters' list, said: "It
had been alleged that this delay
would necessitate carrying on government by special warrant. This was
not the case. Ou account of the failure of tho'Seralin govornmont to carry
out business no supplies had been
voted. But oven if thoy had they
would not have been available
until the 1st of July. AH supplies for
this year had been voted last year and
wero available up to the last of June.
This was pointed out In the prorogation speech, which he believed no
one listened to excepting himself.
(Laughter.) It was necessary to have
another session before the close of the
fiscal year to vote money to carry on
the government. As the government
paid its bills at the end of the month
no money was actually required un'H
August 1st. The House would meet
about the end of Juno or the beginning
of July. There was plenty of money,
the departments were running along
smoothly and there was no occasion
for any concern on thatscore."
A Strong Philadelphia Syndicate.
At tho Back of it.
The Lade Group.
The Lade group Is situated on the-
little west fork of the Duncan, one-half
mile west of the Badshot. It was the
first discovery of free gold made in this
distriot. It was located In August, '97,.
by the Lade brothers. It comprises
four claims, the Olive Mabel, Little
Fred, Foundation and Goldonvllle. On
the Olive Mabel a good deal of work
has 'been done, and Messrs. V. and J.
Lade are now outfitting here to recommence work for the season. It was
from this claim that the shipment
whioh netted the owners $220 to the
ton was made. The tunnel to tap the
lead at a depth will be completed very
soon now,
The Towier,
D. Ferguson and J. Knowles intend
to resume work on the Towser this
season If The Towser Mining Co. do
not, oven yet, accept their terms and
continue development. Telegrams are
passing freely between here and
Chicago, and a deal may be put
through any day now. So far as the
owners are concerned they do not care
particularly whether the property
changes hands or not, as they have
unbounded faith in its possibilities.
With the advent of a smelter in
Ferguson, the Towser will be among
the first shippers.

M. L. Moyer is Now Looking for a
Location and Sizing Up the Local
Conditions In Company With
Woll Posted Minim,' Mon. Small
Capacity to Begin With.
M. L. Moyer, representing a strong
Philadelphia syndicate, was in town on
Friday, accompanied by J. W. West-
fall. Mr. Moyer is a mining and smelting man, nnd having hoard so much of
Lardeau nnd Trout Lake districts his
syndicate havo decided to thoroughly
investigate tho apparently good opening for smelting and. reduction works
here. Mr. Moyer has already visited
tho Nettio L., which was a revelation
to him, also the Silver Cup and other
properties in the camp. Messrs. H.
McPherson, J. W. Westfall, W. B.
Pool, J. C. Kirkpatrick and other
prominent local mining men are assisting him in every way thoy can to see
the district. Mr. Moyer intends to
spend the season in the camp looking
round, sizing up difficulties they will
havo to encounter, the supply of fluxing
material, the transportation problem,
the amount of ore likely to be
supplied for treatment, and all
the various phases which confront an enterprise of this nature.
But the Eagle reporter was led to bo-
: levo that works on a small scalo at
east would be established at some
I entral point in the district in the
course of three or four months, as a
leeler, and if found satisfactory his
! yndicate would locate and build what-
( ver tho requirements of the camp
i emanded. Mr. Moyer feels satisfied
that we will have railway transpor-

This news is but a forerunner of
what is in store for tho Lardeau district. Everything is coming our way,
capitalists are turning their attention
to this portion of the province, there
is no labor trouble, or any particular
drawback other than lack of transportation to keep us back. And this
we hope, will soon be a thing of the
past. The season is opening up
earlier than usual, the war Is drawing
to a close, and everybody is getting
down to business. The mineral Is in
the camp to back up the activity
which will inevitably predominate
here this season, and soon the Lardeau
will rank among the foremost mining
camps in Canada, a position it should
long ago have enjoyed had it not been
hoodooed with the Klondike rush of
'97 and lack of transportation facilities,
which aro so soon to be provided.

D. Memsies, collector of customs at
Atlin, arrived in the city this morning,
says the Vancouver Province. Mr.
Menzies says he is down for a two
months holiday, having taken advan
tage of the fact that his staff was not
overworked at this season of the year.
He is the first to bring the news of a big-
strike on the south fork of the Big Salmon river. Such a strike has been
vaguely mentioned, but the location
kept dark. The reports from those who
located the claims are that the gravel is
very rich and that he knew for a fact
that pans from these claims went as
high as 88.
Mr. Menzies also brings the first news
to British Columbia of an organized at
tempt among the Americans at Nome
to run every Canadian out of that camp.
The information was secured in Seattle
that tho Canadians now at Nome were
spotted and that spotters were on the
track of those Canadians booking for
Nome. At the American placer camp
a committee has been organized to warn
all Canadians arriving and those already
there to leave and avoid trouble. A
most extraordinary feeling has been
worked up in Seattle against the Britishers.
In speaking of the prospects, Mr.
Menzies said quartz mining which
would be carried ou this season in that
section would astonish the world. Two
big English companies were already
establishing large hydraulic plants in
Atlin, while owners of placer claims on
all the creeks but I'ine.which is worked
out, are pooling their claims, owing to
the fact that the limits of each claim are
so narrow that it is difficult to work
them singly and by combining they can
hydraulic all the claims at once. Claims
of great richness will be developed on
this plan.	
Says the Toronto Telegram: No danger to the British Columbia treasury is
involved in the Martin Government's
proposal to build a government railway
from the coast to the Kootenay.
British Columbia should be the first
province in the Dominion to show that
it costs no more lo build a road with the
public resources for the people themselves than to build a road with the
public resources for Mackenzie & Mann.
There is an old saying to the effect
that a man with 150 and the public aid
could have built every transcontinental
line in the United States. The 150
would have paid the "capitalist's" hotel
bill while he was waiting for the subsi
dies which were the foundations of the
scheme for financing every transcontinental railway.
British Columbia's new government
proposes to take the subsidies in land
and monev.which have been demanded
by private promoters of the railway
from the coast to the Kootenay,and put
these resources into railway work in
stead of into the pockets of subsidy
grabbers. The result will be, if the
province is not stampeded by the clam
our, that British Columbia will lead the
way in asserting the righteous principle
that the public should own every railway which is built at the public expense.
future of Canadian Coal Mining.
The output of the Crow's Nest Pass
Coal Co.'s mines at Ferine at present is
700 tons daily. Of this about 4,000 tons
per month go to the enke ovens. The
company has also started to open up
two more mines on Michel creek,one at
Sparwood, 24 miles east of Fernie, mid
one at Ericson, 27 miles east of Fernie,
both close to the railway track. The
seam at Sparwood is reported to be 12
feet thick, and the one at Erickson 15
feet thick. Coal is shipped from both
places. The company completed 152
coke ovens in 189H and laid the foundation for 38 more It has also let contracts for the building of 300 more.
The Financial Chronicle of Montreal
remarks editorially: "The unprecedented use of coal has caused such an
exceedingly active demand that the
world's coal market is in a most unusual situation. Companies are stated to
be in receipt of requests for quotations
for shipping coal to almost all parts of
the world. While this condition of
things is doubtless traceable to Great
Britain's war requirements, and the
stocking of her various coaling stations
to their full capacity as a precautionery
measure in case of eomplications with
others than President Kruger, it is also
doubtless due in part to the almost universal boom in commercial activity.
The Canadian coal fields are increasing
in value year by year, and all the ener
gies of our people out to be devoted to
mining the 'dusky diamonds' known to
exist in Cape Breton, British Columbia,
and many districts yet untouched by
the miner's pick.
"If the world is threatened, as some
w/Mllil  hn.tr. ���o U cllo-'o, with 4 COUl f��ln
ine, greater efforts must bo made to in
crease the output of every mine in the
Dominion of Canada. Let us make the
most of our golden opportunities. It is
estimated that the British Government
has, since the South African war began,
shipped between 200,000 and 300,000
tons of coal."
Treating Disease With Light.
Dr. Finsen, of Denmark, has caught
tbe attention of the entire medical world
in bis new method of treating certain
diseases by means of rays of concentrated light. His investigations are supported by state and municipal aid, and
are endorsed by the leading physicians
and professors of Copenhagen. The arc
lights used in the treatment are 40,000
candle power, about twenty times as
strong as the ordinary arc light. Already 360 cases of skin diseases have
been successfully treated by Dr. Finsen.
This is the first instance in medicine
where light has been successfully employed aa a curative agency. After a
series of experiments, Dr. Finsen has
discovered that the blue, violet and ultra-violet rays, when concentrated, become a powerful therapeutic agent, killing bacteria in the skin of a patient in a
very short time. In order not to burn
the skin when operating on a patient, it
is necessary to cool the light; this is
done by a lens that excludes much of
the yellow, red and ultra rays that are
heating but have no bactericidal qualities, In treating skin diseases, sunlight
is employed aa often as possible, otherwise the medium ia an electric arc light.
Dr. Finsen's method is considered aa
successful for scarlet fever and smallpox
as iu skin dissasss.

Some time ago an elderly married couple, who had spent the* great part of
their lives in a villaj��eJiii;.,Derbyshire,
made up their minds to take a journey
to London.
They received plenty of advice from
their neighbors about how they were to
take care of themselves, and especially
to beware of the Loudon sharper. To
save expense, they decided to go by one
of the cheap trips thai, started from n
neighboring town.
They got safely off, and all went woll
till the train reached Heilforil, at which
place it stopped a few minutes.
The old man, thinking he had plenty
of time, went to the refreshment bar lo
get a glass of beer, and he waa 80 flustered by the crowd that lie did the very
thing he was afraid of���got left behind,
An express train being due, however, in
a few minutes, the station master kindly
allowed him to go by it, and he was thus
enabled to reach London twenty minutes
before his wife,
He was eagerly on the lookout when
the trippers arrived, and seeing his wife
he rushed up to her shouting:
"Hi, Betty, I'm glad to seeyeageuu.
1 thought we wor parted forever.''
Betty looked at him indignantly, and
remembering the advice of her country
friends, said:
"Away wi' ye, man. Don't be comin'
yer Lunnon tricks wi' me. I left my owcl
man at t'other station. If yer don't be
off at once, I'll call a bobby and hae ye

The Double Eagle Company ln.s been formed (or the purpose, not only
of mining its present properties, but of acquiring promising claims and developing them to an extent that will justify their sale to English and other
companies at a profit. The company 'ilready owns and has paid for in full,
the Trilby and Old Saul properties in the famous Fish River district, and a
three-quarti rs interest in the May Bee mine, ii the Lardeau district one and
a half miles from Ferguson. Sufficient promoter's shares have been set aside
for the purchase of the remaining quarter.
The May Bee is the sister claim to the now famous Nettie L, which has
broken all records in British Columbia for large bodies of phenomenally
rich ore. The May Bee and Nettie L were located together in 1892 by
Mr. W. B. Fool (who has been appointed manager of the Double Eagle Co.)
Both claims carry identically the same rich ore on the surface and tbe same
remarkable ledge runs through both, carrying high values in gold, copper,
silver and lead. The promoters have already spent $4,000 in developing
the May Bee, withexcellent results, and in order to place the mine quickly
on a shipping basis the company now offers the public the opportunity of investing to a limited extent in fully paid and non-assessable treasury shares
(par value $1) at 10 cents each.
Shares will be sold in blocks of 100
and upwards.

The following appeared in the March
number of the Typographical Journal,
written bv J. M. V. Grabner, of Buffalo,
In his annual report to the Knights of
Labor, General Master Workman Par
sons, speaking of tha issues on which
the workingman should take a stand
Perhaps the most important of these
issues will be the trust, for who has not
observed the progress of its making,
and who will contend that it carries any
charm to the wage earner. Tbe con
castration nf wealth as employed in the
la Snail In. of ��u* aountry, has mads
many strikes during the past few years
whioh have resulted to their detriment
wherever such combinations have been
affected. It remains for us to uphold
the stand taken by the founders of our
order,who,through theii foresight,have
seen the approach of the condition that
is fast coming on. How to meet it is a
question that should be given your earnest consideration, as the Knights of
Labor above all other organizations
will be expected to speak on this important subject.
Thus it will be seen that trusts, instead of benefitting labor, as their apol
ogists would have us believe, are productive of strikes. But this is only one
phase of the evil anda comparatively
unimportant one. A greater evil which
In time will be brought about hykbe
domination of trusts in practical industrial slavery. The trusts, by controlling production and eliminating competition, can also control the labor market. Once in power the trusts will have
things all their own way. No attention
will be paid to tbe grievances of the
wage worker, and strikes, usually the
last resort and most powerful weapon
at the command o( the workingman,
will bo of no avail.  The trusts are here
to stay; we must look the situation in
the face and endeavor to remedy existing evils. To accomplish this the three
points enumerated below will not only
remedy trust evils, but also effectually
crush them.   The points are:
First���Perfect organization. This
means that every wage worker must he
a member of a trades union.
Second���The adoption of a univei sal
union label, said label to appear on
every article emanating from a union
Third���A strict adherence to the laws
of unionism.
The workingman must fight his own
battles. The despotic power which the
aggregation of wealth can yield, and by
which courts areinfluonced,legislatures
controlled and privileges purchased,
ought to teach the wage worker a lesson not to look for justico or support
from any of the above mentioned sour-
cos. The outlook for organized labor
was never brighter than it is today.
Stand by your guns, gentlemen! Agitate, educate and boom the union label.
Experience,   of  an   Irl.h   Emigrant  In
Laden with human freight the great
ship steamed into the harbor. Slowly it
moved towards ite dock, its huge sides
quivering and palpitating, like a thing of
life, with each pulsation of its ponderous
engines. A alight sound, a grating noise
as of two mountains in mortal combat,
followed by the clanking of monstrous
chains, conveyed the intelligence that
the gang plank had been lowered, and
crew and passengers were once more
safely anchored within tbe sheltering
bosom of mother earth.
'Hoorah for Ameriky!" exclaimed a
modestly clad man, of decidedly Cork
dialect, one among the first to gain the
dock. "Me trials an' sufferins are over
at last. If oonly Oi'd got here before Oi
came, me cup uv joy'd be overflowin'."
"Papers! papers! Morning papers I All

newsboy, rushing up to the landing.
"Who struck 'im 7" inquired the stranger. "Show me tbe mon that, would

"Paper, sir, paper?���full account of

"Give me a douzen uv thim," said the
stranger; "the more Oi git uv this blia-
sed coontry in me poseahion the bitter

"Howly Mootber!" he exclaimed, half
an hour later, runninghiseyes down the
long column of want ads. "If me ounly

The eleet beat furiously in the faces of
the frenzied pedestrians and the fierce
gusts of wind, twirling around the angles
of the huge buildings, fairly lifted them
off their feet. Muttered curses and fierce
ejaculations, interspersed now and then
with an earnest petition of, "I beg your
pardon, air," completed tbe category of
the subject under discussion.
Presently a clear voice rang out above
tbe roaring of the tempest,repeat ing that
ever familiar cry, "Papers 1 papers!
Morning papers! All about the new
American possessions, and the rapid formation of trusts I"
"Divel a trust!" returned a gruff voice
from the throng. "Oi wouldn't trust a

"You're my prisoner," broke in the
gruff voice of a burly policeman, "come

'If you'll promise to behave yourself
I'll let you off this time," replied the
officer, after some hesitation.
'Dom a coontry thot won't arrist a

disgusted prisoner. "It's the ounly

The despatches say that Col. Jack
Cliinn was with Gov. Goebel of Kentucky when he was shot and that, disdaining tbe stream of bullets which
continued to come from the mysterious
window in the state house, he leaned
over and ministered as best he could to
the wants of his friend. Colonel China
is known all over the United States as
one of the best race starters in the country and as a man of unquestioned personal courage.
"Colonel Jack Chinn's knife," a murderous looking blade, is also pretty well
known. It is said that Chinn never
permits this weapon to leave his possession.
Several years ago Col. Chinn visited
Texas. He brought with him a negro
valet, Sam. The negro had been a
slave in the Chinn family before the war
between tbe States, and idolized his
young master. One night while in
Houston the darkey came to Chinn and

After walking till exhausted, seeking a

Reoentlythe premier of Manitoba,
Hon. Hugh John Macdonald, expressed
hinself in this way on the subject: "I
think that the province should have
exclusive right of controlling the
charters of any new roads within the
boundaries of the province.. Of coujise,
roads extending beyond tne proving!*
must be under the control of the
federal government, and if powers are
asked to extend beyond the province
at some future date, federal authority
must also prevail. However, government ownership, so far as practicable,
Is tbe true remedy for all railway
Vancouver World: In declaring
himself as favorable to government
ownership of railways and other
franchises, Horn Joseph Martin ia In
line with what the Liberals as well as
the Conservatives In this province
demand, and whioh writers and
thinkers on political economy believe
to be the correct theory. The government of Great Britain owns and controls the postal and telegraph systems
throughout the United Kingdom. The
service given the public Is known to
be an admirable one In every respect.
The city of Glasgow is a model
municipality. Its citizens owns the
gat,, electric, water and street car
service and the saving to tbe corporation and tho people Is simply enormous. Other cities as well as
countries are emulating Glasgow in
that respect.
W. A. Campbell, Vancouver.; There
is not a railway of any importance in
Canada to-day which was not built by
the people, either directly or
indirectly. Those who write and
speak In hostility to the proposition of
government ownership of railways
should give us facts and data bearing
on the subject. Then people would be
able to judge for themselves as to
whather or not they were familiar, or
at all conversant with the question.
The public on this Important question
demand foots, and not only the empty
babblings of men who know absolutely
nothing as to the desire which is
prevailing in every country for the
state ownership of railways, telegraph
and telephone lines, as well as the
postal systems, and In cities and large
towns, as well as rural municipalities,
for civic ownership and control.

The Eaole recently remarked, from
information given it by a prominent
ratepayer in Revelstoke, that their fire
alarm system was a failure. The
contractor, H. C. Dler, with whom the
Eaole has no fault whatever to find,
says: The fire alarm system Is not yet
completed, nor Is It likely to be for
two weeks yet, and I think it rather
previous to condemn the system before
it Is put into working order. The
lower town portion of the syBtem was
fitted up temporarily and worked for a
while with the best of satisfaction,
until the pole line began to give way,
letting the fire alarm wires oome in
oontact with live electric light wires,
which of course, caused a false alarm
as would be expected from any fire
alarm system under the sun. Thla, I
am sorry to say, happened two or three
times, but the apparatus was not at
fault as the article referred to Intimates.
I had nothing to do with'the building of
the pole line, it being put up by tho
olty, and very poorly" done. The
system which I am Installing here is
in use In many eastern towns and gives
good satisfaction. I installed the
same system in Kamloops about four
years ago and they speak very highly
of it there. Never.yet has it been
known to fall and It) is tested1 every
day, and haa not yet sent In a false
alarm, for tlie simple reason that they
have a good pole line."
