Tl TO tSER 111 THE MINING REVIEW
Instructions    Received   by   Supt.
Innes to Increase the Force.
MANAGER SKEAFF TO ARRIVE
A Systematic Course of Development to be Pursued Prom Now
On.���The General  Outlook
for tlie Oamp is Bright.
Few    Idle    Miners.
'Most encouraging news was received
"by Supt. Wm. Innes, of the Towser
Mining Co., last week. Instructions
were received to place a few more
men at work and as quickly us possible
prepare room for a bijr force, when
development work will be pushed witfi
all speed. Manager J. M, SkealT of
Chicago, will be hero in a few days
now to look into matters generally.
Tf tho Towser people locate their
ore "body probably they will make
a shipment or two before the snow
goes. And it is to be hoped their
efforts will prove successful for there
is no better a company operating in
the district. They have spent their
money in good faith and they have
value for every dollar of it, so far as
broken rook Is concerned. This syndicate is not burdened with chicken-fed
directors, nor is there any money
wasted in useless officials, cablegrams^
etc. Two men, who savvy their busi'
ness, constitutes the management
They buy tbeir supplies locally and
pay their men regularly. There is
not a person in the Lardeau but wished
to see the Towser people succeed.
The second and new bond which this
syndicate havo  secured   gives  them
i eighteen months   before   making the
' final payment   of $.'17,000 to Messrs.
David  Ferguson  aud John Knowles,
tbe owners.
With a force of 20 or 25 men on the
Towser, 30 or 35 on tbe Nettie L., two
on the Wonderful, $\x or eight in the
Old Gold, two ou the Free Coinage,
three on the Cup. two on tho Idle hour,
two on tho Silver Queen, live on the
I. X. L-, besides rawhiders, freighters,
oro haulers, etc., the eamp is much
moro active than in past winters.
A Retrospect, and the
Prospective Outlook
Past,  Present   and
Future of the Camp
A HOPEFUL If
What A Prominent Merchant Here
Thinks of the Lardeau.
iEGir
THE I. X. L. BEING DEVELOPED.
The Lessees Expect to Find Ore
and Commence Shipping.
W. H, Howard, Frank Barber, Goo.
Hayes and Joseph Murray left on Sunday to eontiniio work on the I. X. L.,
a northwest extension of the Maybe,
on Nettie L. bill. The lessees, Messrs.
Howard and Harbor, expect to tap the
ore body with io or 20 ft. more work.
A pood eabiu has been erected upon
the property and supplies for the winter havo been parked in. Tho property
is owned by F, J. Beatty of Vancouver.
The oro, judging from surfaco indications, is high grade enough to warrant shipping under present conditions,
and the chances are soveral tons will
bo shipped before spring, A good
deal of work lias been dono, with
promising results, It is moro than
likely that soveral moro men will be
employed inside of thirty or sixty days,
The Nettie L. bill properties, since
the Nettle L. mine has turned out so
well, are boing woll prospected now,
and In the course of another year or
two thero should bo throe or four
shippers, all diroetly tributary to
Ferguson���tho pay roll centre.
Naturally the first question a Lar-
doauite is asked, when in outside
camps, is "well! how aro things in the
Lardeau?" Tho answer is a huge
task and ot course depends largely
upon the personal experience of tlie
informant. If he has made a stake,
and is on his way "back homo" or out
for a holiday trip, (perhaps tho first
time in ten years), tbo reply is must
enthusiastic as to the'past, present and
future. If the informant is a man who
has toiled and knocked round tlio hill
for a number of years back, with stil
nothing in sight, his life but a day
dream of the future and possessini
more knowledge of "bannock" than the
size of his bank account, then the
reply ia apt to bo oft times pessimistic.
So that, considering the bitter's position, the Eagle feel# safe in striking a
happy medium.
As the Eagle has said before, the
season of 1000 was a memorable one In
the history of the Lardeau. Not that
thore was any boom experienced, but
the poople who are interested in mining properties seemed to take hold and
push ahead as though they meant
business. The old-time raining companies renewed their energy, worked
more men, and accomplished
MORE ACTUAL DEVELOPMENT WORK
than in all the rest of past years combined. This had a good effect upon
the community in general. Not only
."id claim owners laitbfully perforin
their assessment work, but many of
them entered upon a
systematic; plan o.' development
the results of which will be more
evident the coming season. Then too,
mining men, fow as they were, came
in prepared to do business, inspected
this or that property and in over a
dozen cases
SALES WEBB MADE.
This means that just that many more
men are now interested in tho Lardeau and in order to make money they
must eommeneo work on a small 01-
Iarge scale. Every now company
which becomes directly Interested
in mining property here ensures work,
at standard wages, to that many more
mon.   Gradually
THE PAY ROLL INCREASES,
new industries are built up thereon,
and tho general prosperity of tbe camp
increases to that extent. Not only
this, but thero being so many dependent upon Lardeau's future, to make or
break them, it Is nothing but natural
that this army of men will take
united action to
evovy ton shipped before the railway
reaches here means a loss to them of
$20 or $2") per ton. And as they have
all kinds of money they don't have to
ship to pay current expenses, as others
hero are obliged to do.
FREE COINAGE IS LEASED. D
A Party of Men Now Prospeotlng
For the Ore Body.
A. J. Gordon and party, who havo
secured a loaso of tho Free Coinage
property, on Silver Cup hill, from
Messrs. Dunn & Faroll, Vancouver,
are .now hard at work and hope to
eatob the ore body ln time to ship a
few tone before the winter is over.
No recent word has been brought down
the hill, but the lessees feel confident
they will make good wages at least.
Ferguson is the place   where tho
mines are���the pay roll centre.
Ferguson is tha natural and commercial centre of the Lardeau.
PULL FOR A RAILWAY,
the direct result of which will mean all
modern appliances for profitable mining on a largo scale. Thoro is
loo much money at stake in this eamp
now to ever think of It retrograding
Tbe development and progress made
in nearly every property prospected
and worked last summer was reassuring. Scarcely u cuso has como to tbe
Eagle's notice where a property
properly handled is not tile better for
it at tlie end of tlio season.
IN THE SILVEH OVV MINK
the oro values, with depth, aro constantly increasing, From $f> In gold at
tho surfaco to over $14 at 350 foet
dopth, while the othor values also
Increased. The Eagle believes tbat
the present shipment, 200 tons, of
Silver Cup ore, on the way to the
Trail smelter, will
NET AT LEAST $200 TO THE TON,
or some $75 per ton better thun heretofore. Of courso tho Silver Cup has
practically closod down for tbe winter,
there boing only two or three men
working on a contract which will last
them until spring. But this can not
be wondered at. The company havo

which the writer visited only last
Wednesday, is growing a richer, bigger
and better mine every shift. No
wonder the demand for Great Western
shares exceeds the supply. Shares

cents, the company's price, aud in fact
the company does not care to sell at

this mine to-day, aro buying shares as
an investment. This in itself demonstrates beyond a doubt the opinion
they they have of the property. There
must be
NEARLY HALF A MILE OF WORK
done in tho Nettie L. mino now.
Indeed it took tho Eagle representative a good part of two hours to go
through the entire workings. The
winze spoken of two weeks ago, is now
down between 00 and 70 ft., with the
lead even stronger than at any point
hortofore encountered. Tho oro is
almost clean and carries largo quantities of groy copper, very rich In
values. One man bai'/. mined and
sorted tweive sacks of tola ore in the
wlnzo on Wednesday, in one shift. At

iu earnest. To ship 1000 tone of ore is
a big contract at any time, even where
the ore is blocked out, but where the
men havo not only to mine it hut
block It out it becomes udlflloult task.
However tho boys in the Nettie L. are
equal to the occasion und thc EAOLE
has no doubt hut Manager Pool will he

THIRTY MEN AT WORK
In the mine in a few days and perhaps
many more before spring, us the large
and steady shipments now oil tho way
to the smelter will provide ample
funds for carrying on a systematic
courso of development preparatory to
tho arrival ofthe railway.
IN TIIE OLD GOLD CAMP
ii steady storm of work was kept up all
season long, with most encouraging
resells, a specially good strike having
been mado on tho Old Gold property.
On the Primrose, too, a new lead with
a promising minora] outorop was found,
and upon which work will be vigorously pushed next season. The Guinea
Gold has probably one of tho blggesl
siirfuee showings iu the country, bill
tbe long crosscut tunnel had not quite

PAID OUT ROME $15,000,
In Ferguson, asa payroll and forprovls-
ious purchased hero. And if this
amount is not doubled next season tho
Eagle will be disappointed. Tn fact
this company will remove their B. C.

just as soon as we acquire railway and
banking facilities,meaning incidentally
a good deal for this town in many ways.
the tkione;ihine
as already known, is ono of Lardeau's
now finds and the results from its ore
shipments, given exclusively in the
Eagle, speaks for its value. Tbo five
lessees, without a dollar, took this oro
out In a vory short time. They started
in sacking ore from tho surface and
there Is enough Injs/ght now to make
it a valuublo mine. The ore Is portion
larly high grade,
OVER $300 TO THE TON,
Triune, but the surrounding properties, which helps along this camp.
Several oilers havo already been made
to owners of adjoining properties, some
of which will, no doubt, be accepted
before spring and work commenced
upon them, all to the mutual advantage
of the eamp. To the Eagle's way of
thinking tlio Triune mino has done
the country more good, and advertised
it moro than any other property in tbe
camp. Noxt season will seo wonderful
developments in tho Triune, moro
especially with tho railway tapping
tho district, as then there will bo
practically no ore sorting, just dump
tlie whole works into an aerial tram
bucket, to be unloaded in ore cars
bound for tho smelter. Tho possibilities for this property are beyond the
comprehension of an individual who
has waited so long to see a railway
built this way.
Thero is simply no end to the number of assessments faithfully performed
during tho past season, hero and there
all over the district. 9 A number
are now bonded under option, or
negotiations nre being carried on for
their sale to men with money, who,
next season will come in to see what
they've got and prove It to bo a shipper if possible.
Taking the Lardeau district all in
all the past season was tho best it ever
know, and the outlook for tho future,
commencing about May 1st, is very
bright, so bright in fact that even u
newspaper publisher can acquire a
decent living, if hacked up ami supported by tho people who benefit by its
production, its instrumentality in
advertising the rich mineral resources
of tho district in financial centres,
advocating tho requirements of the
people, and looking out for the camp's
goneral welfare, first, last and all the
time.
The   Surplus   Population   of The
Rossland, Slocan and Boundary
Camps Will  Centre in Ferguson During the Next
Two or Three Months.
While up street yesterday an Eagle
representative dropped into one of the
business houses, where the proprietors
were busy taking stock.     "Well what
do you think of the prospects for next
season.    Do you suppose next eprlng
will bring us tho long looked for
revival'/'' asked the Eagle. "No, Ido
not believe we will have to wait until
spring to see people coming into this
camp. You sec, men witb three or
four thousand dollars who are now in
overdone camps, such as Kossland,
Slocan and the Boundary will come' in
before the railway roaches here, as
they realize that then is their only
show to get in on the ground lloor and
grow np with the district.
���'I consider that Ferguson will be
one of the biggest and richest mining
camps in Canada, inside of live years,"
said a prominent Ferguson merchant
to the Eaglf. yesterday.

NEW POLICY WANTED
The provinco of  British Columbia
is several millions of dollars in debt,
something like eight millions.    The
natural resources of this province are
unbounded and only require development, by either the wholo people or
private capital, to produce unlimited
wealth.   This requires the expenditure
of large sums of money, by the government, to opon up the country, in the
way of   trails,   roads,   bridges,  etc.
And  heroin  lies  a tale.   Gross mismanagement, unnecessary expenditure,
false  economy,  bonuses    to   private
companies and kindred features have
placed  us in tbe awkward position of
being heavily   in debt.    Judging by
the  post  history   of  the  Revelstoko
riding a great deal of this eight millions of dollars has been spent injudiciously.   Thousands of dollars expended
on  tr��Be and roads in this riding have
been absolutely thrown away, because
of the penny wise und  pound foolish
policy of not looking before leaping.
There bas been enough money spent
on the  wagon road between hero and
Thomson's     Landing    to   build and
equip an electric railway, but because
the work was not properly done in the
first  place tho  money was practically
squandered.   Not till last year, when
loseph   Martin   appropriated    nearly
?10,000 was tho work   dono  properly.
There is nothing saved by half doing
things.    Then Mr.  Kelly,  ox.-M.P.,
spent a few thousand in tlie Lardeau
building wagon roads over which   a
wagon never passed.       And even Mr.
Kelly's retirement  has  not remedied
this evil in its  entirety.    The good
citizens of Revelstoke have become so
accustomed   to    having    govornmont,
money   spout  round  and about that
town that they  actually believe It is
coming to them.   The wugon roud now
being built up to  tho  Gig Bend will
serve as an Instance.    Hero $15,000, us
a starter, is being squandered on a road
whicli is of no earthly uso to anyone
oxcopt tho men drawing salary.    The
road Is located along a portion of country subject to  mud slides .1(15 days of
the year.    And If everoullt, ul what
over cost it may, be lt Is still no use.
The ore up that way is too law grade
to ship by  wagons.     Thc Columbia
river is the proper moans for transportation to this northern district.   Tho
, money wasted on tho present scheme
would put a  small  steamer on   and
properly Ull the bill.    What is really
needed   is a  railway,  and when it
comes the long road would  be useless
anyway.   What is the object in spending thousands of dollars on a rood over
which o pound of ore cannot be shipped
at a profit?    If the  government, and
our member, is well advised they will
drop this unsurmountoble  project for
something whioh will meet the requirements of the  Bi?  Bend, rather than
throw more good money after what is
already wasted.    If the government
would shut off all these useless expen-1
ditures   throughout   the  province it
would'soon be ln  a position to build
and- Operate railways as a means of
opening up rich, new districts within
Its borders.   Thesoonor a progressive
policy along these lines, backed up by
men with back-bone and progression,
is adopted tbe better for every taxpayer in British Columbia. This
province has reached a stage in its
career where the moss-back element
must drop over the dump of oblivion
and mado room for the new order of
things so evident for tho near future.
Plans ure alroady boing laid in the
Kootenays to accomplish this object at
the next provincial election, und tho
liAOLE believes tho movement will not,
only be a successful one, but one whieh
will wonderfully develop and bonelit
tbe entire province. And it is time it
would.

The mischief'making preacher who
claims a Chinaman as a "brother"
should depart for China or remain in
this provinco���for soon B. C. will become a "flowery kingdom," if these
hypocritical sky pilots are allowed to
run at large. A preacher who will
weep and shed crocodile tears because
of the fallen women in our land, and
at the same time employ a Chinaman
in bis house, is slightly inconsistent,
and no wbite man should cough up one
cent towards giving him such n privil
ege. Whon preachers realize and
grasp the present earthly nnd unjust
economic system and assist in bringing about a proper state of society,
in our time, instead of teaching us to
wait until wo? reach the mansions in
tho skys, it will bo soon enough to food
them on ohioken dinners. Preachers
of to-day, OS a rule, deal with tho effect
rather than the cause of the present-
day social inequalities.
The journalistic ass who presides over
the sanctum of the Nelson Miner
should inform himself upon the subject of socialistic doctrines before
comparing them with anarchism, '.."lie
two are diametrically opposite in their
purposo. But it matters very little
whether the above personage would
like to see such a state of society or
not. It is coming unyway. The advantages of competitive system are becoming less every day. Trusts and co-operation is forcing a now era upon us
and there Is nothing for us to do but
accept the Inevitable und adjust ourselves to the new system so near at
hand. The public ownershlpof public
utilities is not a matter of choice with
the majority of people of today. It is
being forced upon ua by a fow people
getting control of the moans of production, What is good for theso "preferred" socialists would be good for all
tho people.

The Nottie L. owners have sunk
nearly $.V),0(lO in work up to this date,
and lt is only now that they are commencing to got buck their money. No
dividends have been declared, they
have an up-hill climb and troubles of
their ow'ti; but this does not prevent
the provincial govornmont from exacting that unjust two per ee il. mineral
tax. If It wasn't for tho prlvoto capital which dovelopcd this rump, the
government would be receiving no
rovonuo from hero at all. Kvory dollar collectod bore comes directly or
Indirectly from the mining men operating in the camp. Since they create
the first and all rovonuo In the Lardeau, why hold them up for u second
special tax. Once the mine-owners in
the Lardoau get their own money
back and commence to pay dividon.s,
then, and then only, (if thu present
system of taxation is found tn be to
safest, easiest and surest, way i f
getting the revenue wanted by the
govornment,)imposo the tax. All the
time a company is prospecting and
looking for oro, they ore Indirectly

but supposing they hove to expend
$100,000 before finding any ore they
are still just as certain to be held up
for two por cent, of their money when
they do commonce shipping, whether
they find enough to get back the money
they havo invested or not. Since the
government already have access to
the mining companies' books, smelter
returns, etc., it should be an easy matter to know when a property is paying
dividends. Once this is assured, thon

Capitalists the world over havo certain rights, und they look out for them.
Labor also has rights, but fails to look
after them. But the century is new
in many respects.
Many ministers ot the gospel, who

but tho fear of losing the support of
woaltby church members prevents
them expressing their honest convictions. When the pulpit and the press
is rid of men of this stamp the social
system will soon be put right.
An Italian organ grinder trains his

people aro not monkeys I���Freedom.
A great trouble is that the man who
studies economic questions and discovers thoir truths and has the courage to tell them antagonizes his
employers; the people have not taken
interest enough to ascertain the truth
of his statements and allow the matter
to pass without making employers feol
the weight of their displeasure. Any
man who makes a conscientious study
of economic and social conditions and
takes to himself seriously what ho has
discovered is going to have an uncomfortable time of it.
Thc great departmental stores of the
east give one a good idea of how things
would bo if tho government manufactured and distributed goods of every
description among its members, the
whole people; except that there would
be more d&strlbufing centres throughout Canada, under proper social conditions, and instead of a few men
making millions of dollars thereby
under sweot-shop conditions, tbo profits would go into tho public treasur
for the public good. The thought of
such a system may not be pleasant
but wo have to face conditions as tbej
are, and deal with them. The day of
individualism is past, the "trust" has
a firm bold and until oil tho people
become shareholders there will bi
diction between the persons who are
already "preferred" socialists and the
people who are paying tho piper. The
means of production and distribution
must and ultimately will be owned bj
the whole people.

The urgent necessity for such JJ
a complete map, probably 40 x 40

)ERTINENT
POINTERS
For Prudent Purchasers
That tho Lardeau district bus unbounded mineral
resources no well informed person will deny.
Tho Lardoau district is on the eve of o new era,
brought ubout by the wonderful developments, finds and
strikes made thus season; along with tho fact that the
construction of a railway by the C P. R. is absolutely
certain for early next season.
The large ore shipments boing mode this winter in
spite of the fact that transportation and treatment costs
approximately $117 per ton, indicates the high grade
nature of our ores.
With cheap transportation next season, when Lardeau's acres of low and medium grudo oro can be treated
profitably, the possibilities are astounding.
The attention of outside investors has already been
arrested und hundreds are now making arrangements to
operate in this district after the early spring���in fact
some of them ore here now, securing bonds, looking for
and finding ground-floor propositions.
No district in Canada today oilers better inducements
for the investor than this one. The mining business is
no monopoly. The poor man has even chances, at least
more 60 than in other lines. When lie finds a Triune lie
doesn't have to sell. What other occupation in life con
a mon follow whero his chances with a wealthy competitor ore less diminished than in prospecting and mining?
"There is a tide in the affairs of mon, which, taken nt
the flood, loads on to fortune." It may not bo your lot, to
make a fortune, but if ever there was an opportunity in a
mining camp, the Lardeau ofi'crs it today. Don't wait
until the railway comes; for then the prospector is not iu
the some need of money, to enable him to hung on.
If you have money to invest now is the timo to investigate. Como straight to Ferguson; you will find mon hore
who have proporties to sell; In fact Ferguson is the home,
the meeting place for prospectors and Investors. The
owners, as a rule, will be found most reasonable and
always ready to give you information, cheerfully escort
you to their properties, and otherwise interest you in
their interests. We hove the mineral resources and no
money to develop them. Will you come in and help us
and thuB help yourself?

D. L. Clink, of Trout Lake Secures
Orders Por Over 60,000 Ft.
D. L. Clink, proprietor of the Trout
Lake sow mill, was in the poy roll
centre lust week, receiving orders for
lumber. James Cumming's order
amounts to some 2">,000 feet, R. P.
Pettiploce's over 1.1,000 feot, Andrew
Cumming's over 10,000 feet, while
Assayer Shannon. B. A., will order
enough to build a private dwelling.
Teams will be put on at once to have
tho lumber hauled to Ferguson, and it
Is Mr. Clink's intention to start a large
lumber yard hero as soon OBthe present
orders are filled, finding the market
solikely forthe Immediate future. It
Is more than probable that Ferguson's
jaw mill will not be running until
about June, tbere being no logs out of
the bush, so Mr. Clink's chance for
clearing up o small Klondike is favorable.
