of tie District.
Various Rosslanders interested in
Lardeau mining propositions are now
directing their attention to that section of the Kootenays, and it is freely
predicted tbat the district is just entering upon one of the busiest seasons In
its hiBtory. The present season will
see giant strides made in tbe development of tbo district and tbe utilization
of its great natural resources in the
form of mineral. One of tho prime
factors in this goneral advance is the
completion of the Lardeau branch of
the Canadian Pacific railroad, which ii
practically accomplished. An engineer
from thc road who was in Kossland for
a short time yesterday stated tbat al*
ready tbe road was handling freight,
but that tho lino would not be formally
turned over to tbe operating department by the construction department
until the last week in tho present
month. The operating peoplo aro anxious to secure control in order that the
growing business of the country might
be expedited, but ballasting and other
llnishiug touches are required before
tho transfer is'effected. When the
Lardeau road passes out of the bunds
of tbe'consti'uction department its volume of business will be considerable hy
reason of tho large amount of oro already gathered for shipment. The
handling of tho summer supplies for
tbe district will also stimulate business.
Tho importance of the railroad to
most mining properties located in the
Lardoau is sufficient to materially alter
the situation. Mining mon state that
a straight reduction of $15 per ton in
the presont cost of handling ore between tho properties and the reduction
works will be the result, this being tbe
difference .between the cost of teaming
and packing to tho lake front and the
railroad's charges*. Moreover, another
Important saving will be secured to
mining operators through tho reduction of tbe cost of supplies consigned
inward. Heretofore there has been a
charge of a cent a pound for packing
supplies across the divide that will now
bo practically wiped out, as the railroad will bo in position to lay down
supplies in Trout Lako at the same
cost as waB formerly charged to Thomson's Landing. In these two quarters
the operators will reap substantial advantages and tho country will bo generally benefited. The lack of railroad
facilities hus boen a serious drawback
to tho progress of the Lardeau, and
now tbat this is to bo removed the
oountry sliould go ahead rapidly.
Eventually it io believed tbat the Great
Northern system will bo extended up
the Duncan rivor and its forks, thus
giving raining operators on the Duncan sldo of the divide the railroad facilities which aro secured to thoso on
the Trout Lake 6ide of the divide by
the construction of tho Canadian Pacific. In tha meantime, however, all
mining propositions are assisted by the
road already built.
A number of Kossland people are
interested in Lardeau mining^properties. Tho principal properties in the
Old Gold camp are managed from this
city, and tho camp is now one of the
busiest in tho eutire district. The
properties included in tbe camp aro tbe
Old Gold, Primrose, Guinea Gold and
Peterson, all in active operation and
all exceedingly   promising.     Whilo
"British Columbia has an excellent
reputation among the mining men of
the district of tbe United States with
which I am familiar, and I am satisfied
that we can secure any reasonable
amount of funds for the exploitation of
the mineral resources of the country,"
says Judge James M. Miller, who has
returned to tho city after spending tbe
past six months in various eastern cities. He bas been most successful in
promoting properties with which he is
connected, principally in the Lardeau
country, and will now devote his attention to getting under wav the work
mapped out for the present season.
"The United States has never beforo
witnessed suoh a period of successful
speculation"1 Continued the Judge.
The valuo of farm lands in the Western Central States has increased 25 per
cent, in tbe past twelve months, and
people aro pushing out into tho Western States and Canada in thousands and
tens of thousands���5,000 left St. Paul
in ono day over tho various railroads.
Througout eastern American and Canadian cities thero is an unprecedented
wave of prosperity. I was ln St. Paul,
Minneapolis, New York and Toronto,
among other places, and in all these
cities business is booming. Matters
aro moving along buoyantly in Eastern Canada, and even in Toronto, where
it was impossible to talk British Columbia mining a year ago, peoplo are
beginniug to*took to this provinco with
a more kindly feeling. Tbis was two
months ago, and I am not prepared to
say what has been tho effect of subsequent developments upon tho sentiment I observed while there. I am
glad to say tbat of all those I talked to
about mining in this province not a
single man bad a word to say against
British Columbia.
"The outlook for tho Lardeau country
is magnificent," remarked Judge Miller, turning to the discussion of tho
section of the Kootenays in which his
personal interests lie. "I was in the
office of James J. Hill a couple of
months ago, and whilo nothing was
said in tho way of definite assurance I
was given to understand that the
branch of the Great Northern system
up tbe Duncan river would be startod
at an early date. Coupled with this is
tho practical assurance that the Canadian Pacific will extend tho Lardeau
branch from Its present water terminal
at Trout Lake City ovor to Thomson's
Landing, connecting with '.he Arrowhead branch of the main lino as rapidly
as possible.' Tho effect of the construction of these railroad lines
through the heart of tho country will
bo far-reaching. We have in the Lardeau twelve properties at least thut
have shipped oro up to tho present
timo in the face of costs for transportation so heavy an to bo prohibitive in
uny section where the ore carries lower
valuos than aro characteristic of the
Lardeau. This summer will see the
number increased to not less than a
score, and when tho Grout Northern
and Canadian Paeilic extensions are
accomplished wo havo fifty mines that
can ship $50 oro and better, a'number
of theso being too far distant from the
existing means of transportation to
produce nt a reasonable profit. In referring to tlio properties thus in a portion to ship ore I am speaking from
personal knowledge only���there may
be a number of others, and doubtless
are, that have been developed during
the past winter. The properties that
have already shipped Include the Silvor
Cup, Nettio L., Triuno, Cromwell,
Beatrice, Ruffled Grouse, St. Elmo,
Etbel, Broaaviow, Great Northern
Lado group and Llnsou View. Those
that will ship this season for tho first
time aro tho Old Gold, Primrose,
Guinea Gold, Mario Marilla, Horse
Shoo, Black Warrior and, probably,
the Treadweil. The Lardeau is by far
the liveliest silver-lead mining district
in the province.
TO SPEND MUCH  MONEY.
"Tbo companies with  which I am
identified  will  exi  nd not less than
I, I BROCK CLOSES THE DEM.
A Stamp Mill Will Be Put in r��t
Once to Work this Famous
Property.
$75,000 this year in development and
equipment of their properties. I am
going to the Lardeau in a few days and
propose spending some months there.
We aro watching with keen interest
tho results of the experiments witb
tbo Vulcan reverberatory smelter recently completed at Ferguson. I saw
Mr. McCrossan, tho owner ot tho plant,
a few weeks since, and ho Informed mo
that the smelter would blow in as soon
as tbo Triune oro could be delivered at
tlio plant. Tho outfit is intended to
handle thirty tons daily, and the in*
ventors claim for it that it will save a
higher percentage of values at less
cost than the old style of reduction
works. If practical results support
this claim we will construct a similar
plant iu the Old Gold camp to treat tbe
ores ot tho various mines tributary
Works similar to thoso at Ferguson
can be built at a cost of about 5,12,1)00,
and the fuel problem, one of the most
difficult to solve whore transportation
faeilitics aro not all that they should
be, is practically solved by the fact
that charcoal obtainable on tho ground
may bo substituted in largo measure
for coke. Wo expect to come to a conclusion on the smelter question at a
comparatively early date, and if tho
plant is decided upon it will he installed
before the end of October.
"Whilo in tho cast I was successful
at Minneapolis in forming the Marie
Marilla company, to take over the
Podro group of claims. Tbe property
is most promising, has a quantity of
ore already sacked for shipment, and
will bo placed upon the shipping list
this summer.
"Another company was organized to
operate the Guinea Gold, on the lead
and almost adjoining the Old Gold.
This was formed in Minneapolis also,
and work will be started on the property within ten days. A third company was formed to handle tho Lar-
deau-Duncan Gold & Silver Mining
company's claims, and the development of this property will bo got under
way within thirty days."���Minor, Rossland.
Another big cash deal has boon put
through in tho Lardeau. D. Camel'On
and W. Butler having disposed of the
Gold Finch, the big free gold property
at Goldflelds to tbe Northwest Develop
ment syndicate for the snug sum of
$25,000. H. Z. Brock of tho above syndicate put through the deal.
The Gold Finch has a rich surface
showing of freo gold quartz. Splendid
speeimons bave been taken away by
visitors to tho camp and mining mon,
and several shipments worn made last
year by Mr. Rosenberger whicli assayed
high and attracted much attention.
Tho Gold Finch is a"fractional claim
which accounts for the seemingly small
price paid for tho property. The syndicate havo secured a first class property at a reasonable price.
We understand tho now owners of
the Gold Finch are intending to put in
a stamp mill in connection witb their
electric plant, as It is certain thai
enough ore can bo taken out during
thc process of development to keep a
mill in steady operation. We hope wo
may bo able to chronicle many such
deals ss tho O.vi'.cr, Criterion, Kossland and Gold Finch this season.
Messrs. Butler and Cameron have
gone on an extonted trip to England
and will bo present at the coronation,
but will return to the Lardeau whore
they havo still other good properties.
some distance from a shipping point on
the Canadian Pacific, the new road
places the properties on a much more !
advantageous basis with respect to
transportation than formerly, and wlien I
tlio Great Northern builds in tbey will
have railroad facilities almost at their
door. J. W. Westfall is in charge of
the properties os superintendent.
On Canyon orook is tho Pedro, also
managed for Rossland, and now being
operated with a small forco of mon.
The property Is situated threo miles or
thereabouts from the foot of Trout
lako, and has, accordingly, a particularly favorable location with respect to
the new road. The Mountain Lion
company, having its head office hore,
owns the group of the same name In
Old Gold camp and tho American group
in the Hoaly Creek section. Their
operations are confined for tho present
to tbe American group, whero thoy
have exceptionally good transportation
facilities.
Tho Cariboo Creek Development Syndicate, formed last winter in Rossland
to operate thc Effie and Colonial claims
on the headwaters of Cariboo ereek,
have made a substantial payment on
the purchase price of the properties
and within a fortnight will have a crow
of men at work on the claims, The
development already accomplished de
monstrates a promising showing, and
it is tho intention oi tho syndicate,
whieh includes 40 or 50 Kossland people, to continuo operations all summer
at least.
Tho Trout Luke syndicate, another
local organization embracing a number of Kosslanders, owns a number of
olaims in various parts of the Lardeau
on whicli considorablo work has boen
dono with most satisfactory results.
Tho late spring has prevented the syndicate resuming operations for the
summer, but a fortnight will see work
undor way on several of thoir properties.
Tbe Lardeau is to have a smelter.
The plant has already been constructed,
and the report to hand Is tbat smelting
operations will bo startod as soon as
ore and fluxes are collected. The plant
Is a Vulcan type, and Is supposed to
handle 30 tons of ore dafly, and is
situated in Ferguson.���Minor, Rossland.
termer Will Stay With Holland.
Paul Kruger declares ho will ond his
days in Holland. The British government had offered to give him transportation to South Africa, but tho old
man's grasp on lifo is short and his
dreams bave come to naught,
Sllll Another IlUasler,
The town ot Michel near Fernie, was
destroyed by fire Monday week, as the
result of a bush fire. The wind blew
furiously and In less than four hours,
24 houses were reduced to ashes.
Fifty families aro homeless. A few
barely escaped with their lives. A
groat many lost part or all of their
furniture. The Crow's Nest Pass Coal
company's loss will amount to nearly
fifty thousand dollars. Ton C. P. R.
cars wero destroyed, with a loss of
about ton thousand dollars. The C. P.
U. station had a narrow escape and had
tho wind turned to blow from the east
tho other part ot the town would cor*
tainly havo been swept away.

In Montreal on Juno tho Sth two men
from B. C. who will not give their

Windsor Station on Saturday. A con
fidonce man seeing that they had
money told them that they wero too
cnroless about carrying it and offered
them a small bag. Tho threo became
great friends, with tho result that tho
money was soon iu tho possession of
the stranger, who doparted for points

EARLIER CLOSING OF SCHOOLS,
rrorltunutltme  In  Connection  With Dominion Lands.
The public schools of tho provinco
will close two days earlier than usual
this year on account of tho coronation
of King Edward, By proclamation in
the Provincial Gazette, issued June
12th, the 28th and 27th instant aro declared holidays in tho schools, and thc
closing examinations will be hold or.
the 25th.
The regulation permitting a homesteader to cut timber on Dominio..
govc. ument lands in Manitoba, thi
Northwest Territories and British
Columbia, has been altered, and now \l
tho homesteader has tho timber cnu
into lumber ho is allowed to cut 9,25,:
instead of 0,750 board measurement as
formerly.
Another notieo by the Dominion
government is one which authorizes
the minister of tho Interior to doa<
with applications for grazing lamb
within the railway bolt In British Columbia, under the regulations which
apply to Manitoba and tho Nortbwes,

Still another notice from Ottawa Is
ono which states that permits will be,
granted owners of steamboats plying
on tho waters in Manitoba, thc Northwest Territories and within tho railway belt in British Columbia, to cut
wood for consumption on their boats
without competition.

FRIDAY, JUNE 20, IDI'2.
Building operations have started
in earnest in  Ferguson.   For quite
a time there have been those who
would have built had they been able
to secure  material, but were pre*
vented irom making a start, thus
the contractors now find themselves
up to their eyes  in work and everybody wanting  buildings started at
the same time.    Tbe delay wilh tbe
lumber was caused by an uncertainty on the part of the lessees of the
mill, they not being able to come to
a'definite understanding with the
owners of the timber.    When this
.-was arranged satisfactorily the milt
had to be moved to the new site secured  near the  old Home-Payne
buildings.     Then   grievous  delay
was  caused in   securing  a water
right.    However we are glad that
Messrs. Smith and Labeau succeeded in purchasing this outright and
have the mill building enclosed and
everything in first class shape.  Not
being sure what they might be able
to do about the mill, timber and
water, the lessees could not get out
logs when there was snow, to run
the mill during the summer, but for
the past ten days men have been
employed in the bush sawing and
cutting  logs   while  the mill  and
planer have been  kept busy, the
proprietors endeavoring to overtake
the orders that had been booked,
From this on it is believed there
1 will be no mpre delay occasioned in
the building operations by inability
to secure material.    There is a scarcity of habitable dwelling houses in
' Ferguson and a number of families
and others who wish to keep house
cannot get dwellings.   Now wilh
building material available it should
not  be long  before the different
carpenters  will   have  constructed
dwellings to supply the immediate
demand.   A few cottages' built for
rent would prove a great convenience and would pay handsome returns from the investment.   A number would bring families in if dwellings could be got.    We believe the
town will be making rapid Strides
ahead in another fortnight.   Every
mail bringsletters frompartiesacross
the line enquiring about  the camp
and promising to be in during July
to look over properties with intent
to purchase.   Several have enquired
if dwellings could be secured should
they bring their families with them
To this we were unable to answer
yes.
It is satisfactory to note that
some of our leading mine operators
have entered the Fish creek- camp
and two of the leading properties of
that famous district have passed into the hands of men who will push
operations most assiduously, and
interesting developments may be
looked tor.   We understand con-
We are proud to draw attention
to the progressive and tasty spirit
evinced by the hotels and business
houses of Ferguson in the matter of
improvements to their buildings.
Three painters have been kept busy
for weeks painting, papering and
decorating and the town now presents a decidedly smart appearance.
There was certainly room for improvement in the dress of the town
and our people were not slow to
take advantage of the good weather.
There is also considerable activity
in the clearing of lots and putting
in water pipes. Messrs. McDonnell
& Edson pf the Ferguson Hotel have
shown commendable enterprise in
having put flush closets, bath rooms,
hot and cold water pipes in their
hotel. This will add greatly to the
comfort and convenience of guests.
In tlie legislature last-week Smith
Curtis made a strong speech against
the existing undue taxation of the
mines, which, he said, in some instances amounted to 50 per cent, of
the net profits of the companies
operating. Curtis went so far as to
suggest that in' view of the depressed state of the mining industry
the government should forego all
taxatioi) upon the output of the
metatiferous mines for a period of
two years.

sai_aaM *_inlna; a-i are Invaatment.
A thought on mining as an investment. You wbo measure gains in mercantile pursuits by the fixed ratio ol
the buying and soiling price; you who
have tbe simple scale of interest on
money loaned; you who buy land, build
houses, and become renting landlords,
or you who would take the forms where
chance enters moro largely, as industrial, railroad or other stock, or buying
aad selling the oereali���all are asked
to view in unprejudiced light���mining.
There can be no more legitimate investment than mining. We mean bere
mining, real, Intelligent mining, such
at makes producers and operates them,
A miner's gain is no one's loss He
takes nothing from the pocket of his
brother, but from God Almighty's
hand. Competition, bruising, grinding, murdoring competition is unknown
to tbe gold miner. He locates or buys
his mine, performing a duty urged by
the government, or paying value received. Ho develops It, helping his
brother by giving him employment and
consuming bis produce, His metal extracted, competition does not enter into the sale, for it is always in demand
and at a fixed figure.
Trusts manipulate and water industrial and railroad stocks. Heal estate
booms go and come. Manufacturing is
nipped in tbe prime by centralized
competition. Bonds are sure, but
dreadfully slow. Mortgages do not always secure. There are a thousand besetting evils to all Investments, except
a gold mine.
Mining bas been given a pall of prejudice by reason of fraud. Men, pretend.ne to own a property, havo secured money to wiiste where there
were plainly no values to bo secured,
Others, baving u good property, have
squandered money in extravagant and
criminal management. Tom many,
with no knowledge of the* vocation,
have poured money into the ground to
reach a ledge, which any inttiligent
mining man would discnuntenani'i ��� Investors arn sometimes to blame In other
respects. They put a dollar into a
mine, uxpecting the following day 10 in
return. They do not realize the time
required tn develop und open a mine,
and often leave, the lield disgusted In
fore work has progressed to that stave
testing the merits of thoir properly.
These are causes for intense prejnu
ice. Prejudice Is foolish. Viow in its
truo light everything, eUe you may
lose a goldeir opportunity. View mining so. Be assured of honest manage
ment, be assured of competency, be In*
formed on time necessary for opera*
tions. Gold Is in millions ot ledge-:
there aro safe guides to it. Equip
yourself for an Intelligent, faithful
search and mining is tho safest anil
most fascinating form of investment
found to-day.���Western Miner and Fl*
