judge Miller Speaks Glowingly of
This Distrlots's Progress
RAILWAY piUS NEW LIFE
The Old.Oold and Primrose Are
Shewing 'Up Well, and Will
be Worked All Winter
RESUME OF THE WftRK DONE
Judge Miller, who has returned to
Rossland, alter spending .nearly two
months in tbis camp, in speaking to a
.Rossland daily is certainly most
sanguine as to the future of the
Lardeau, predicting that in a lew years
it will outstrip tbe Slocan as an ore
producer. He states that the district
is livelier today tban it has ever been,
much nf the extra life being owing to
the railroad work in progress and the
Activity Among Mining Men
who see in tbe construction of the road
the   promise   of , tbe transportation
facilities for which the country has
been waiting.      t
In tbe mining eamp where his interests lie, Judge Miller states that matters are progressing most satisfactorily.
Day and nightsh'ifts are being worked,
a crew of fifteen'men being employed,
On the Old Gold between 500 and 600
feet of work bas been done. There is
a promising showing on the surface,
and one tunnel tapped tbe ore body at
a perpendicular depth of 100 feet at a
point 160 leet from tbe portal. At this
point the vein carries
Two Feet of Clean Ore
running $125 per ton and three feet of
concentrates. Another tunnel Is now
under way to tap tbe oro body at an
additional depth of 100 feet, and the
workings on this level are in 150 feet.
Progress is being made at the rate of
throe feet per day, and the vein should
be encountered at an additional distance of 60 feet. It is regarded as certain ln view ol the experience gained
at other points that the ore body will
be found to carry additional values at
this depth. A small shipment of Old
Gold ore has been made to test tbe
value.   This
Consignment le Now at Ferguson,
and will probably be forwarded to the
Everett, Wash., plant for treatment.
It is not the company's Intention to
ship during tbe winter because of the
heavy charges for transportation. It
is believed in this connection tbat true
economy lies In permitting tho ore to
remain undisturbed until such time In
tiie near future as the excessive transportation charges aro substantially
reduced.  The mine
Could Rhlp n Lnrgo (luuntltv of Or.'
during the coming season lf it were
deemed wise, particularly as ono of the
problems of transportation has been
solved by the construction of a trail
from the ramp down the west fork or
the Duncan for a distance ot four miles
to tbo landing where the Steamers call.
The government bus constructed the
trail up the Duncan to a point within
three-quarters of a mile, and has
authorized tbe Old Gold company to
complete the work. This gives the
camp a continuous down haul to thc
waterside, the natural and most
economical outlet for its ore. It is
proposed
To Continue Work All Winter,
the mine buildings being in excellent
condition for the winior.
"On tha, Primrose work is being
prosecuted'on either end of the proporty with a couple of shifts each during
the 24 hours. On the west end No. 2
tunnel is being continued and Is now in
00 feet, aud the ore is beginning to
come in very nlc&ly," said Mr. Miller.
"I have to report ,
A Very Important strlko
on the east end in No. 2 tunnol which
Is now In about 30 foet. Here tbe ore
body on the footwall Is 15 inches in
width, ha.ylng widened out to this from
about six inches, and when 1 left was
���till on the Increase. The character of
the ore is a bit of a surprise, for from
several assays we received gold values
ranging from
���5.50 to ���180.80 to the Ton,
Copper values ranging from 5 per cent.
to 20 per cent, per ton. The silver
teste bave not yet been made, but are
expected to run high. The following
are eoples of tbe results of some of the
tests made for gold and copper: Sample
1, whieh was tested for gold alone,
went $180.80; sample 2, which was also
tested for gold alone, went $31.20;
sample 3, which was of material taken
clear across the lead, gave a gold value
of $15.20; sample 4, wall matter, gave
a gold value of $6.40; sample 5, of zinc,
tested for gold, went $5.00. In the
several tests made as above the lead
percentage was not high, running
about 7 per cent, per ton. In a recent
test made of this ore for silver, returns
of 140 ounces per ton were obtained.
"In connection with the values in
gold and copper, silver and lead, lt may
be said that tbe former values are confined exclusively to,.the foot wall,
where the
Paystreak li Fifteen Inches Wide
at present, while tbe latter are confined
to the hanging wall. At the present
stage of development it is not possible
to state just how wide the streak of
silver-lead is. The meeting with such
high values ln gold and copper was
totally unexpected, but the stiver and
lead values have always been exceptionally good. Development will be
pushed through the winter on No. 1
tunnel at the east end and should catch
tbe ore ohute within the next sixty
feet, Tbe tunnel site is a grand one,
being located ln the timber and near to
tbe creek and trail. The depth gained
will be fully loot for foot."
The Seoond Shipment This Season
Contained 9665.42 in
Oold Values.
Andrew Ferguson returned from tho
Trail smelter on Tuesday, witb the
returns from the second Triune shipment made this season. The gross
returns were $5,502.58, $0115.42 of which
wns gold vulues. Another 20-ton lot
will be ready for shipment this week,
and the third and last shipment this
season will follow in a couple of weeks.
if the present fine weather continues,
however, the output will be further
increased.
PROMISING POOL CREEK PROPERTY.
IT BEATS MACHINE   DRILLING.
A LIVE-WIRE PANORAMA.
Life in Ferguson bas its own peculiar
drawbacks. A large number of minors
came down the bill on pay day���last
Saturday���and the resident who bas
had an undisturbed night's rest since
tbat date did not live nearer than the:
Horne-Payne camp. Even Billy Pool
complained of having to get up in the
night, at the demand of miners in his
employ, and sign cheques for time
sheets while still dressed In his night
wardrobe. One hundred dollar bets,
witb sixteen to draw to, were only
ordinary Incidences; while on every
corner might be seen men declaring
their fighting proclivities or undying
friendship for each other. Champagne
was drutk from beer glasses, while
plain belly-wash flowed like water.
Talk about your Sarcee sun dance,
Blaokfoot pow-wow or Cluch potlach,
but the past week In tbe pay roll centre
was simply a continual round of pleasure.   But ob I what an awakening.
The Matohed Contest at Spokane
Puts Past Records to Sleep.
Before a crowd of 2000 people in the
big tent used'by the Elks'carnival
shows, at Spokane, the Butte drilling
team, Bradshaw and Freethy, defeated
Ross and McLeod, representing Sandon. It was only by a close margin
that Butte carried off the money, for
an inch or more by the Sandon 'team
would have turned tho tables. The
Butte team drove the drills down 52
inches, while the Sandon team had 51
1-4 inches to its credit when time was
called. Both teams were unfortunate
in selecting the spot to start the drills.
The granite must have been obstinate
when the drills began to penetrate to
a depth, for drills stuck for both teams
and there was considerable time and
distance lost because of that fact. Ross
swung the hammer like a demon and
McLeod came down on the steel with
tremendous force,  but the luck was
Recent development on the Mountain
Boy group of olaims on the south side
of Pool creek has resulted In some discoveries 6* very rich free-milling gold
ore. The group Is situated in the same
belt as the Eva and Oyster groups in
the Lardeau district and belongs to I.
McGee and W. Gerard. The property
was located nearly lour years ago as a
galena proposition and assessment
work has been done each year. The
ledge was a large one but the ore was
of such a low grade that littlo hope
was entertained of, the property proving to be of any great value. The
recent discoveries on the Eva and other
adjoining properties having shown
that the claims comprised in the group
were in the free gold district the ledge
was thoroughly prospected and stripped
for a considerable distance. This resulted in a chute of extremely rich
gold ore being found in the ledge that
had before been worked only for sliver.
The owners are naturally much elated
oyer tbe discovery.
OPHIR-LADE CLOSED TILL SPRING.
The working force on the Ophir-Lade
group has been laid of! for tbe winter.
Tbe snow coming so early, the non-
completion of the Bunker hill trail,
and not being prepared, are among tbe
reasons assigned. The property was
looking better with every shot, and it
seems a pity to have its development
retarded, but It takes lots of time In
such cases, as has always been the
drawback with every camp newly
beginning. However, there is good
reason to believe that tho $100,(KW bond
will be taken up as it matures, since
tbe development already dons proves
it to be well wortb risking that much
money. And with tho expenditure of
another $2,000 or $3,000 next season the
Ophir-Lade need abut down no more,
for there seems every ovldenoe, from
tho free milling gold quartz brought
down by.ths Hen, tbat the pinohing-
out feature will not come in our time.
SIZING DP AVAILABLE TONNAGE.
Capt. Gore a<)d W. Downio went
down the lake '.to Twin Falls on Tuesday, to size up tho. railwaj' situation in
that locality. They, report that at least
600 more men will be at work within a
week. They woro anxiously enquiring
into the likely tonnage available and it
may reasonably be supposed that upon
their report rests the decision as to
whether tho company will put a boat
on the lake nnd operate the branch
this winter,
Mining men engage their
crews at Ferguson, and
pay them off in Ferguson.
The place where the mines
are is the place where the
towns are	
Ferguson receives the pay
roll benefit from all the
shipping mines ,	
against the men from British Columbia.
It seemed to be an even thing to the
betting fraternity, and Butte money
found ready takers at evens. Ross and
McLeod were the last to drill of four
teams in the tournament, and the excitement was at fever height during
the last moments. When tho judges
announced that Butte had carried oil
the $1000 purse there was a groan of
disappointment from a large contingent
who fancied the Scotchmen from tbe
Slocan. Davey and Stephens of Marys-
ville, Montana, drilled 63 7-8 Inches
against 40 3-8 inches by Patterson and
Stephens, a picked team, Theso teams
had better luck with their rock than
the other two. \
Good tidings continue to como from
the Slocan and tho dry ore bourn is
dally growing in strength. Tbo tide
is flooding there and much better times
than for years past are plainly ln
sight.
Freight is now being accepted by
tho C. P. R. for transmission over the
Lardo line and is carried about eight
miles up Irom tho lake by rail. The
steel is being laid as fas: as possible
and by December 1st the line le ex
pected to be through to Trout lake.���
Nelson Miner, This looks good to
Lardeaultes.
The Lardeau branch of the C. V, R.
is being pushed through with all
possible speed. Contractor Carlson is
away endeavoring to Secure harvest
bands in Manitoba, There Is still a
great deal of Work to do, but the contractors hopo to roach JVln Falls, at
tho foot of the lake, by tbe middle of
December. A good many people are
coming in by that route already.
A TWIN CITV FEEDER.
Jamos Rutherford, manager of the
Lardo Valleys Mines, Limited, passed
through Nelson last week, says tbe
Tribune, on his way to tbe companies
properties on Tenderfoot creek in tho
Trout Lake section. Mr. Rutherford
will continue development on the prop
erty all winter, and took threo or four
miners in with him to supplement the
orsw already at work. Some exceptionally rich ore has been taken from
the claims held by this company on
Tenderfoot creek, the gold returns
being surprisingly high, but sufficient
work has not yet been done to remove
any of tho claims out of tho prospect
stage.
8IX.TON CROMWELL SHIPMENT.
K. M. Morgan was in town on Tuesday settling up Cromwell supply
accounts, tho proporty having shut
down for the winter. Thoy havo six
tons out, which was to bo shipped from
the Landing yesterday to the Trail
smelter. A snow-slide last week, cov-
oring up the tunnol, intimated that iI
wns time to move���and they did. The
property was looking her best when
tbey wero compelled to quit for tho
season. The results of tho oro shipment will be awaited with interest.
Tho addition to Ed. Perry's residence Is nearing completion.
Cutler T. Porter of Spokane, interested in the Wagner group, is in town.
One of the finest bars ever placed in
a hotel in the Lardeau is now possessed
by the Hotel Ferguson.
It begins to look as though the C. P.

year.

tho men who condemn the pross of the

Willi parly lines drawn, and tlu

Columbia may soon be blessed wilh
a sound business-like government.
This is a refreshing outlook.
Why should any citlswn, who be- The Royal party struck Revel-
lieves in government, be afraid to stoke according to schedule, but
trust    his    government   with   the  the  Duke  decided  not  to lay  the

Is it because he has no faith in

"the cost ol living has risen 33.7

even now, knock that record into a
cocked hat, were the railway com
pleted.    	
The Lardeau district is everywhere attracting the attention oi
the mining world. Our high-grade
ore shipments arc factors which
cannot be overlooked. Ferguson,
the supply point and commercial
centre, is feeling the good effects of
the growing pay roll.
Thc won lerlul progress in all
other mining districts, except
I'.ossland, where bull-headed mine
managers refuse to pay the going
wage, must make thc old country
shareholders in Rossland's big mines
feel as though the miners are not to
blame for their misfortune.
When will government officials
iearn that they are sure to meet a
cinch game when they attempt to
apply public monies to their own
use. The only way lo rob the
people is by gelling In on a private
trust. This method of stealing is
lawful;   and    so   much   easier.
, The Vancouver Indcpenden
oilers Mr. Dunsmuir this advice :
Let him continue in power until a
meeting of the legislature can be
held. Then let him bring down a
lair redistribution bill and put it
through before any business is undertaken. In this we believe a large
number of the members will support
him. Then let evenis take their
course.     This is the patriotic way.
i Mr. Taylor to the contrary, the
Uagle unhesitatingly avows lhat
there is no political feeling of any
kind in this portion of his riding.
Lttrdeniiitea feel assured lhat thing-
nre now shaping I heir own ends for
good, and their attention is wholly
Liken up in mining pursuits. It
would lake a good deal Io create a
11 political sensation in this camp,
after the past two or ihree years'
experience.
The mining business, particularly
in its infancy, is largely made up of
hope and the man who is not of a
sanguine disposition should ��� not
follow either the business of mining
or of running a newspaper in a mining country, because he is out of
his element and cannot bear with
philosophy the ups and downs
incident to a life in a mining section.���Nelson Miner. Right you
are, Col. Egan.
The best method to pursue to get
out of our present trouble is to
divide into Conservatives, Liberals
and Labor supporters and work
along those lines to obtain 11 stable
government, says the Herald ol
Revelstoke. We shall get quite as
bfood and business-like a conduct of
our affairs ill this way as we have
ever enjoyed under the old "happy
family" plan. And by and by the
Labor party will give our politics a
ilefinite aim and object, besides adding very considerably to their
interest,

factdid not leave his car. Lady Minto
performed the comer stone ceremony in his stead. Strange to say
the Duke and Duchess are just a
plain man and woman, not unlike
the rest of the human race; and
there is no particular reason why
they and; their huge party of servants and attendants should be
paraded through lhe,,country on the
circus plan. Candians ure loyal

taken ignornace lor patriotism. By
all means acquaint the Royal party
with our resources and people, but
why allow a few touch-the-hem-of-
his-garment "money bloods" to give
a wrong impression of true
patriotism,
The Labor party al present is
only at the beginning of its career,
it has nothing in its gift except hard
work. lis chance of attaining lo
actual power is only in the dim
Inline. The politician looks longingly at all the good votes belonging to it, but he cannot make up his
mind to jump the fence to go after
I hem. From sheer forco of habit
he murmurs the dear old gag about

and turns sadly away to hatch up a
Athene for soaking the Labor can*
.didate pood and hard in the neck
when the time comes, very' truth-
Ifully says the  Kevelstoke Herald,
The Nelson Miner suggests that
the B, C. Gazette be abolished as
an advertising medium, and that
the patronage be given to local
newspapers in their 'respective
divisions. With this the Eagle
cannot concur. The whole people
receive the profits from the Gazette,
which is lair. The Eagi.f, would
suggest rather that the government
ilso go into the newspaper business,
1 bus help to advertise our resources
ind give out perfectly reliable and
unbiased news of the province. The
Gazette doesn't go far enough. It
sliould be a newspaper in every
sense of the word.
A movement has recently been
made in Revelstoke to organize a
Labor parly in this riding. The
idea is an excellent one; but the
Eaole is not sure whether it has
been gone about rightly or not. This
is the day of the grafter, and any
nuw popular organization is cerluin
10 have these hangers-on join their
forces, simply and solely for what
there is in it lor them. These old
party grannies and disappointed
illicc seekers, whose "sympathies
are wilh labor"must be put through
their facings. The Eagle believes
th il the members ol labor organizations alone should constitute the
Labor party. Let them as labor
unions, co-operate, and draft a
policy, select their leaders from
their own ranks and allow the
people to make their choice when
polling day comes, Hy this means
the grafter element would be practically eliminated, since members of
the unions are usually honest, hardworking men in tlieir respective
callings, and have to be accepted as
such; by secret ballot, before the)
can become members. Were this
course pursued the many tin-horn
politicians in this riding would wonder what struck llieui. Labor-
unions in ilritish Columbia general!)
should no longer allow themselves
to be Betrayed,'li'iit net within anci
from their own tanks.
Buying and selling mining stock
is conducted pretty much on the
assumption that there is another
sucker in the world.. Promoters
too often pay more attention to
stuffing stock than to actual .development of their properties. But
the people arc buying their experience, as may be noted from the
following. Wm. MacAdams of
the Sandon Paystreak is in Toronto
and ihis is what he says : "Some
of these Toronto people are pretty
sore on B. C. mining stock. George
Gooderham, Tom Blackstock and
other promoters threw it into their
Toronto friends cold-blooded on the
Rossland propositions and now you
ought to hear the lambs roar. The
poor suckers bought the stock
calculating that it would go up
and they would unload on
other poor suckers who didn't
know any better. But George
and Tom arranged all that. They
did the unloading act." While
tbere are a few legitimate stock
companies operating in this pro
vince, a close investigation will
show that the individual or syndicate miners are the people who lay
up wealth. Stock companies are
all right in principle, but they are
subjected to too much.manipulation,
find there is a wide sphere for
crooked work, ������ rake-offs, etc.
Syndicate mining or close corporations must needs be the successful
mining operators of the future.

Is the Coming Solid Town of the
Lardeau and Trout Lake District
Because of its unique geographical position; nature having provided as pretty a flat bench, at
the junction of the north and
south forks of Lardeau creek, as
ever a town was built up on in
British Columbia.
Because the Nettie L. Double
Eagle, Ophir-Lade, Silver Cup,
Triune, Metropolitan, Sunset,
Lone Star, Comstock and other
properties will operate the year-
round hereafter, and this winter
will see probably 400 men at
\work, over 200 oi which will be
engaged on the properties of
the first three named.'
B B C A USB
Because the shipping mines are
located on Nettie L. hill, between the two creek forks; on
the Great Northern hill just
norih of thc town itself; and on
the south fork and its tributaries)
for all of which Ferguson is the
supply point.
Because mine owners hire their
crews in Ferguson and pay them
oft in Ferguson,
Because the offices of many of
the companies operating in the
CJjmp arc located here.
Because Ferguson receives the
pa\ roll benefit from these working mines.
Because this is the point" where
mining men coming into ('.ihe district make their headquarters; as
they can walk or ride and return
from most of the properties in
one day or less.
Because every pound of ore fi 'om
these mines coming ilown the
hill lands first in Fergusc 'n.
From here ii will be teamed to
transportation on the lake, ;i
distance of four miles.
Because when ihe railway reaches
the place where thc mines arc il
will reach Ferguson.
Because there is every natural advantage for the building up of a
Steal mining' center.
But, why give other reasons: We have the mines, thc pay roll, the natural geo��
graphical location, unlimited water power, etc.., and the right kind of people to make
a town. The ore shipments, increasing business, and money and enterprise will do thc
rest.   Come and see for yourself.

following gem of literature has been
handed us for publication by a gentleman wbo is something of a poet in
embryo, but we are afraid his delicate
constitution will not permit of his
living long enough to develop into a
serious rival of Shakespeare, particularly after this effort; but apparently
the writer's sentiments are in favor of
the pay roll centre.

And load us in Thy

Along Thy meadowy streets,

And set our tired feet
Where tbey mav softly fall
On peaceful paths,
Far from the maddining crowd's
Ignoble strife.
Dear Goddess,

Which crowns vou

And sweet do-nothhigncHS,
And sigh that wo

Most truly blest arc they
Who. as yon do,
Stop where the roses bloom,
The green grass waves,
The bees hum lazily,
The trees stretch out
Thoir limbs
Upon the lonely air ;
The waters sleep
Beside the swnmpy shore,
And let the great world
Hurry on
To destiny and doom.
How beautiful you are,
Amid your peaceful
Circling hills,
^et like a signet
In tho ring of rest.
What though
The scurrying feet
Of thousands nulling by
To wealth and greatness
Jar your walls
And shake the gossamers
That swing In drapercd filaments
Between the arches
Of your trees ;
You give no heed to them,
Nor let their restless
Energies
DMurb the spell
That makes your life
A dear delicious dream,
And leaves you languorous
In a lotui land.
