FERGUSON, BRITISH COLUMBIA, JANUARY 30. 1902.
.00 A YEAR.
Thos. Taylor Meets His Ferguson
Constituents Tuesday Evening.
Important Disclosures Affecting the
Province Made by Mr. Taylor
in Els  Short Address.
PARTY LINESWILL BE DRAWN
nouncementof the policy of tlio Conservatives, and results!
After votes of thanks were passed to
Mr. Taylor, the secretary and the
chairman, tbe meeting adjourned.
Probably never before in Ferguson
was thero such a largely attended public meeting as that which greeted Thos.
Taylor, M. L. A., on Tuesday evening,
for the purpose of placing the requirements of this camp in the matter of
public works before our representative.
The chairman, R. P. Pettipiece, called
the meeting to order at 8:10 p. m., and
made known the work accomplished at
tho previous meeting lust week.   He
pointed out that it would be necessary
for us to ask tot* larger appropriations
than heretofore owing to the changed
conditions in tliis eamp as compared
with former years.   Tlio railway would
bo in operation to the foot of the lake
next spring, a smelter was now being
erected in Ferguson, und our mines had
reached, in many cases, a stage where
they wero ready to ship ore.   Roads
nnd trails must be built and repaired to
bear tho increased traffic, all of which
would repay tho government in revenue
for this year's and other appropriations.
The secretary, Josoph Ryan, then
read the resolutions as passed at tho
former public meeting, and each and
every request was cut down to the
actual amount of monoy required', along
with what Individual mine owners had
consented to put up, to perform the
necessary public works, a sum somewhat larger than last year's expenditure. ,
Following this, the last resolution
asking that tho scale of wages be
raised.to $3 a day. for laborers and 84 a
day for foreman, was brought to tho
notice of Mr. Taylor. And also for an
Increase in the salary of our resident
physician, as well as a small appropriation towards assisting the Miners
Union to build their 83,000 hospital in
Ferguson next spring.
Mr. Taylor took the floor, and with
tho introductory remark, "Mr. Chair*
man and gentlemen, I fear you havo
given me a large order to fill, but I can
assure you that I will, as In the past,
do my utmost to secure your requests,"
spoke for a few minutes to the requests
just made by Fergusonites, and with
reference to the wage, hospital and
resident physician resolutions.
Tho most Important feature of Mr.
Taylor's address, however, was the an-
noiuicoment that at the recent Westminister opposition convention, behind
closed doors, Richard Mellrldo as the
Conservative loador, had been assured
of sufficient support to overthrow the
Dunsmuir faith-breakers, at least flvo
days after tho house moets, and place
him at the head of affairs In this province. At any rnto, lt would olthor bo
this outcome or another appeal to the
people. This of courso had a bearing
on the roquests just inade by Fergusonites. Mr. Taylor conoluded by saying
tbat the policy of the Conservatives
would bo made known vory soon now,
-and he felt cortain If Mr, MoBrldo
were sustained wo could look for all
we had asked for, as.their policy would
be a progressive and a liberal one, an
announcement which received warm
applause, and indicated if anything
��� that Mi*. Taylor's political course waa
endorsed by most of those'presont. ���
Tho chairman thanked Mr. Taylor
for his presence, and expressed the
opinion that all tho meeting could do
under thoso circumstances was to hand
our requests to Mi*. Taylor aud Gold
- Commissioner Fraser, await the overthrow of the government, the an-
A Joyous Ball at tho Springs.
Halcyon Hot Springs Sanitarium, Jan. 27.���The management of the
Halcyon Hot Springs Sanitarium enter-,
tained over ICO guests at their annual
ball on Thursday last, which proved to
be a most enjoyable event.   The excitement of the day began when the s.
s.  Kootenay   arrived   from   Robson
bringing the first contingent of invited
guests from Sandon, Nakusk aud other
points along the lake.   The gallant
littlo s.  s.  Archer from   Comaplix,
steamed in at half past seven with 111
visitors from Beaton  and  Comaplix.
At 9 o'clock tbo s. s. Kootenay, making
a special trip by the kind courtesy of
Captain Short, returned with guests
from Arrowhead and Revelstoke, and
half an hour later tho staunch little
tug Fawn came merrily tooting in with
a second party of guests from Nakusp.
Dancing commenced at nine o'clock in
the billiard saloon and was kept up
with spirit until mignight, when supper was announced and all adjourned
to the hotel, where an excellent cold
collation'awaited them.   Tables were
laid in the dining room and their tasteful arrangement and the smart attendance of the waiters callod for warm
praise.     After  graca   was  said,   tho
manager of tho hotel in a fow well
choson words welcomed the guests and
expressed his pleasure in greeting thorn
and  his desiro  for thoir  enjoyment,
After threo parties had sat down to
supper tho dancers trooped back to tho
ball room. Borne hundred .yards away.
Nothing daunted by a good old-fashioned western blizzard which was raging.   Wraps wore removed and dancing resumed with renewed energy until
a "Scotch reel" closed the program towards 5 o'clock in the morning.  Every
room in the hotel was occupied and
many guests  were  accommodated io
tho cottages.   Some of tho nnn-danc-
Ing baohelors of tho establishment on
attempting to retire at a reasonable
hour, found their quarters had been invaded   by infant  cherubs   who   wero
sleeping peacefully whilo their mothers
were enjoying the merry whirl.   Tho
favorite dances seemed to  be schot-
tisches. waltzes, two-steps, lancers and
quadrilles, with an occasional French
minuet and  bon  ton.    Many pretty
dresses wera worn by pretty girls who
appeared to be thoroughly  enjoying
overy moment as it flow.   At 6 o'clock
Captain Short blew his whistle for the
return  trip to  Arrowhead,  and tlie
other steamers followed suit, and there
was a merry rush for the pier.   By half
past eleven the s. s. Kootenay returned,
bound for Robson, and picked up such
guests for Nakusp and other points as
had not been carried off by the tugs,
and the annual ball was over, everyone
declaring that it was the jolliest one
they had ever attended.
Interesting Events Have Transpired
During the Last Few Days.
NETTIE L. RAISE COMPLETED
W. B. Pool Has Acquired Large
Free-Gold Mining Interests in
Southern Oregon.
The past week has been of moro than
passing interest to Lardeaultes. Cold
weather, hot public and socialist meetings, the sad ending of a respected
citizen, smelter construction, the completion of the Nettie L. raise, ore output, railway construction, etc., has
provided plenty of topics for discussion.

British Columbia is paying a vast
sum annually into the federal revenue
over and above the expenditure of the
Dojminion government, much greater
than) that of the other provinces, says
tho Victoria Colonist.
Tho por capita distribution of the
peoplo of British Columbia to the
federal revenue is four times as great
as that on tho other provinces.
Tho province ought to bo opened by
lines of communication, in order tbat
its great natural wealth may be exploited and its progress and prosperity
may bo enhanced, but the Liberal ministry, although invited to co-operate in
works of development by the provincial govornmont has so far turned an
absolutely deaf oar to tbo request.
Tho Laurior ministry has done nothing nnd makes no promise of doing
anything towards the development of

FERGUSON
There is- scarcely a mail-day passes in Ferguson
but what letters from different parts of the United
States and Ontario are received by the editor of the
Eagle, asking for all kinds ol information concerning
this or that mining company or property. The subscribers apparently want cheap information for no
mention of remuneration is made. What the editor of
the Eagle has to say ot any company or mining property is published from, wce-k to week in the columns.
The subscription price of this paper is $2. per year.
The editor is not, nor does he pose as a mining expert,
hence were he to go into the cheapest business on
earth���that of giving gratis advice���he might make
grave errors and injure what might be a good speculation in the end. At any rate his "private" opinion,
as the enquirers put it, is not on the market.
-The Eagle may say this tho, that the time to en-
quirt of the value of a stock or property is not after
you have purchased it. There seems to be more
suckers drawn into the mining arena than any other
business we know af. The dupes may be good (?)
business men, and yet when it comes to buying mining
stock they fail to exercise the precaution of a school
boy. Now let the Eagle ask you a fair queston : As
a business man, would you really expect the editor of
this or any other paper to give you the information you
ask for, without money and without price ? No man
lias any right to give his opinion of a property unless
he has some knowledge of the conditions which go to
make up the probability of the existence of an ore body,
and he must certainly visit the property and go over it
thoroly before placing his opinion on record. This we
cannot do; it is out of our line oF business. But, il
you want a report on a property in this camp at any
time when the snow is off we will be pleased to forward you the card of some reliable mining man who
can be depended upon to tell you what he believes to
be the truth. And even this pointer is of more value
than you might think for. Now gentlemen, on the
square, what more can you reasonably expect us to do?
exploitation of the people's heritage, rather than men
who stand first for the collective ownership and management ot thc means ot production and distribution ?
Tlie large number cf Ferguson electors at last
Tuesday evening's public meeting were assured in no
uncertain terms by Thos. Taylor, M. L* A., that the
Conservative opposition, under the leadership of Hon,
Richard McBride, has every hope of being able to defeat the Dunsmuir government and command a suffici
ent following in the house to accept and carry on the
business of this province. Mr. Taylor also stated that
a policy was now being framed by a committee, and
when made public he felt sure it would be looked upon
with favor by his constituents and the electors of this
province generally. He gave several good reasons
to his hearers for having joined the Conservative opposition. He was elected as a Conservative; Premier
Dunsmuir had broken faith with his colleagues, and
formed a dastardly compact witli Joe Martin, a man
whom he (Taylor), had .always opposed tooth and nail.
And other events were transpiring which made it apparent that party lines were to be drawn hereafter.
All of which, the Eagle might suggest, looks good to
the Socialists ot this province, who wilt undoubtedly
show the old parties the sort of a platform wanted by
most B. C. electors. But of this anon. Let us wait
for the policy declaration of the Conservative opposition,
Miss Margaret Haile, a Canadian lady who has
resided in the United Ltates tor several years, and who
has taken a leading part in the United States Socialist
party, addressed the Socialist League in Forum hall,
Toronto, recently. Many people who aspire to a higher life, she said, endeavored to cultivate their literary
and artistic faculties, and consider they are reaching
their aim by closing their eyes to the lower life of
thousands around them. This is individualistic, but it
is as impossible for one person to live a higher life surrounded by degradation as it is for a sound apple to
remain sound in a barrel of rotten apples. The highest
type of individualism will be developed under socialism.
Under the present capitalistic and competitive system,
men are unable to live a higher life, because the masses
are preyed upon by the wealthy classes. No workman
would "scab" another man's job unless the wants of
himself and family forced him to do so. The remedy
is the abolition of class rule and the public ownership
of all the means of producing and distributing wealth.
Socialism will not abolish all the evils pf society, but
by making both men and women economically independent, it will remove the need for them to sell their
brains or bodies for food to live. We need a higher
life in the homes, in politics, in industry, etc., and as
the trusts are centralizing industry the socialists point
out that it would be just as easy for a Jboard of directors to control and operate these vast industries for the
people, as servants of the government, as for the capitalistic shareholders. Socialism will establish a system
in which brotherhood and liberty will be the fundamental principles. Under socialism all would have an
equal opportunity, and none would starve while their
brothers were living in luxury. To achieve these aims
socialists were nominating candidates for municipal,
- provincial and national offices, and had already polled
ever. 8,000,000 votes in various countries.���"Griff" in
^Typographical Journal.
Thc Eagle, unlike the Kootenay Mail, has no particular fault to find with the course pursued by Thos.
Taylor, M. L, A. It makes very little difference to the
electors'which side Mr. Taylor takes. The both parties stand for about the same methods of exploitation.
This province is over $8,000,000 in debt now, with
other ioans pending, and each set of incapables we
have 'elected in the past continue to borrow money to
run our affairs, and thus increase the enormous amount
of interest we must pay to sustain parasites in England,
not to mention the repayment of the principal at all.
We may well ask in all seriousness, where is this
policy going to land tis ? The Eagle, for one, will
not support any candidate on any ticket at any time
unless he stands for a system of government which
will put this province out of debt in short order, and
make it unprofitable for private trusts to exist in B. C,
or in other words tor an industrial government. Why
should we pay tribute to old country money-kings and
landlords ? Why should we give anybody the profits
of industry only made possible by us and the existence
of our natural resources ? Why should we send over
one million dollars a year out of this province alone for
insurance, when we can do it cheaper ourselves?
Why should we allow Chinese and Japs to work tor
private concerns when, if these industries were conducted by the government we would employ our own
citizens, the same as we already do with the institutions wg no,w own and operate? .Why,, but why
enumerate. WHi' don't we cease electing men who
support an economic system of capitalistic greed and
Poor old British Columbia is supposed to be as full
of socialists as hades is ot sky-pilots who gamble with
mining stocks, but it is left to the farmers of Ontario
to tackle the construction of the first provincial railway, tho of course the conditions are much different
than in this province. Of the proposed line the Nelson
Tribune says: Inside of two years the government of
Ontario will have constructed and in operation a purely
provincial railroad which it is proposed to build out of
.the enhanced value which its construction will give to
the crown lands opened up by it. This road is to be
.known as the Temiskaming and Northern Ontario, and
will run trom North Bay to a point on lake Temiskaming. With the. selection of the route tor the new
road the government will make a reservation ot 20,000
acres per mile otthe crown lands and trom the sale of
these lands it is confidently predicted that the entire
cost of construction will be met. The wildest socialist
in British Columbia never asked for a greater advance
in provincial railway legislation than this, but the
achievement in Ontario passes almost without notice.
Speaking of the suggestion that a Socialist-Labor
convention be held in this riding to select a candidate
for the next provincial election, a Revelstoke Socialist
writes : "I do not believe in fusion of any kind. I
don't care two raps for success at the ballot box unless
we elect a straight Socialist on a straight Socialist
platform. The Socialist party always champions the
cause of unionism and they of course expect union
support, but the party must remain in the hands of
Socialists. No fusion convention. The existence of
the party depends on this."
The editor of the Eagle is not an aspirant for any
political office, as the Trout Lake Topic suggests.
But this will not prevent the Eagle from placing its

The Eagle can assure the Topic of this much, however, that the Socialists of this riding will be heard
Irom at no distant date, and the names of two men
have been mooted as likely to go before a convention
when the time comes, one a Revelstoke school trustee,
the other a Ferguson miner.
If a man intended to jump across a creek naturally
he would first size up its width and his own jumping
capacity. But not so with the average eastern investor in mining stocks. He listens to.the glib tongue ot
stock-sellers, (oft times masked with religion, whose
business is to sluff shares in a two million company
with a two bit prospect at some 40 cents a share), buys
a bunch and later begins to enquire as to the value of
his holdings. Verily, with Puck we can say "what
fools these mortals be."
The Victoria Trades and Labor Council is making
a strong protest against Chinese children being allowed
to attend the city schools. They contend that where
the most Chinese attend public health is most jeopardized. Anyone being familiar with the stench and
filth of Chinatown at Victoria will readily admit the
contention of the Trades and Labor Council.
In the event of another provincial general election

.Revelstoke Note nud Comment.
Revelstoke, B. C���Everyone outside1 the Ladles Aid says we have
elected a rattling good school board.
Not 'an illiterate man among them.
But then we bad the whole town to
choose from.
Different with the city council. Owing to the ward system and property
qualification, wo had no choice except
Bob Tapping. Case of monoy vs. brains
and of course as usual money won.
The Socialist League meets every
evening in tho band hall. Thoy are
looking for opponents. Tbey are looking foi- the men who say socialists are
dangerous men.
School Trustee J. W. Bennett advocates a night school in connection with
tho public school. What, crazy notions
some of those socialists have any way.
Ex-Mayor Brown said. If it hadn't
boen for the gentlemen of the Water,
Light & Power Co., wo would not bave
any water now. Wonder whore these
gentlemen got the water? Did they
make it? Funny how some people
gobble natural resources, and then
have the nerve to say: If we hadn't
gobbled this, you wouldn't have any
water How.
Great lover of labor, the Itootenay
Mall. Pats labor on the back and
winks at Premier Dunsmuir on the
side. Dunsmuir is the most brutal
enemy of organized labor in Canada
to-day. Most progressive government
afloat according to the Mail. Let us
pray.
The Liberal Association hare their
eyes ou a man whom they think will do
for a "Liberal-Labor" candidate. Great
windjammer. Can spiel for hours without saying anything. Would make an
excellent Liberal candidate, but too
illiterate to represent working men.
How many little jokers In Revelstoke
are pestering their mothers to death
for two bits to go to tho rink and how
many women are making over their
last year's bonnet becauso of their
tenderness of heart, in this respect?
How many boys never see tbo Inside of
tho rink? Most of our little folks spend
their lives in a vain longing for things
beyond their reach.' Socialism will
provide healthful amusement for the
children free.
Speaking of a public meetlug recently held at Naniamo, at wbieh Ralph
Smith was hissed by his hearers, the
Ladysmith Leader concludes a report
ln these words:
"The socialists and Mr. Hawthronth-
waite then tackled Smith and there
was a warm quarter of an hour for
him."
Capitalism, as illustrated by the
trust, Is the beginning of the final
stage of capitalism before the establishment of tho co-operative commonwealth. Succeeding the sooialism of
the trust, will como the sooialism of
government ownership���to be followed
by the socialism of democratlo ownership and management���under whieh
the poople will own and manage every
industry in the land.
