TWO MORE TRAMS TO BE BUILT
Ore Will Be Landed Direct
to the Concentrator.
They Wnulu Lend Turin.
D. 0. Forbes, manager ol Fergusons
two big shipping mines, returned from
Nolson Thursday. An Eagle reporter met him and asked a fow questions
regarding Nelson and abnuL what wus
being done by tho Lead Miners' association in view of tlio Ottawa governments' action iu practically Ignoring
the request of Kootenay mining men to
havo ft tariff placed on lead,
ill*. Forbes found lhat a fatal clash
i had occurred by tbo load producers and
the B. C. Mining association executive
having made separttterequosts ior relief. The executive asked fur a bounty
of .4 and Mr. Hotallack asked font
bonus of $15. To ft casual observer
thore appears lo bo a .vide difference
in tlio figures, whilo the difference
really amounts to about $1.50 per ton,
but tiie Ottawa government held that
there was a difference of opinion among
the lead men, and would not do anything.
The mistake of approaching tho
government from two quarters was not
Intended, but it occurred by a tologram
from Victoria to Mr. Itatallack not
having been delivered, and word was
sent back that tlio gentleman was not
in Ottawa.
A public meeting was held in Nelson
ou tlie 4th inst. at whicli a strong resolution was passed to tiio effect that
nothing less than a $15 tariff would
afford relief.
Tho two biggest mines of Ferguson
camp are getting bigger all the time
aud consequently tho English company operating them are constantly
extending the. scope of their
operations. Tho development that has
been under way for tho past U months
in both mines has shown a vast quantity of ore and some of this is comparatively low grado, so tho company havo
decided that much greater profits can
1)2 realized by reducing both the low
and high grade ore at Ferguson and
thus save the cost of transportation on
tlie baso matter. Therefore a concentrator will be erected as soon as tho
company's new mill can get tho necessary lumber cut.
It is the company's desiro to reduce
tiie cost of transportation to a mioi-
mura and with this end in view a contract has been let to tho Kiblct Co.
to build a trum from the lower terminal
of the Silver Cup tram, which was
completed about tho first of January,
Sown to the forks of the Nettio L.
road, which Is across the river from tho
town of Ferguson. Hero, also, will be
erected the concentrator.
At tho samo timo another train will
bj built from tlio Nettio L mine to
carry the oro from that mine down to
the concentrator whore it will bo
largely reduced and the concentrates
will be shipped to tbe Trail smelter.
Now taking the high grado class of
ore that haa been shipped for tho past
three years, the saving on this alono
will be very considerable both in tho
treatment charges nnd also by tho
much lessened bulk oii;whlch transportation charges had to ba paid.
LOWER GRADE ORE.
Thero aro also thousands of tons of
ore at both minos of much lower grade
which could not bo shipped with a fair
profit over the roundabout route to the
Trail smelter. To be mlnod at a profit
this oro has either to be smelted at
home or what is pretty nearly os good,
bo reduced near at hand,  So the latter
courso was adopted hence the building
of tho concentrator and the trams.
When everything is completed and
running smoothly the cost of bringing
tho ore from tho mines to the place of
treatment will be reduced to a minimum. Tho aerial trams run by gravitation; the loaded buckets coming down
pull tho empties back to be refilled and
thero is no cost outside tho grease and
tho wagos of one man to fill buckets at
the upper terminal and one to empty
buckets at the lower terminal, which
latter will be at tho ore bin of the concentrator.
A I'rufllnlHo Investment.
"There are few investments that pay
larger dividends than a newspaper subscription wisely placed. Tho local
newspaper is a factor of great moment
In tho development of a locality and it

The Columbia & Western Committee Probing the Land Grant
Attempted Swindle.
Premier Prior has further adjourned-
ed the legislature for ^mother week on
account uf the Investigating committeo not having got through with
their labors. Tlie members of tbo
committee have had a heavier duty to
perform than was expected. Many
witnesses have boen examined In an
effort to get at tho bottom of tho affair
bul the witnesses have proven alert
and careful of getting thomsclves into
trouble.
Victoria, B.C., May Oth, morning session. Deputy Attorney General McLean was examined by Mr. Duff, lie
said that two stenographers were era-
ployed in tho attorney general's department, Mr. Bass and Miss Barrett.
Semi confidential correspondence
would probably bo handled by Mr
Bass. With respect to bill 87 of 1002,
witness said that he believed he had
received tlie draft from either Mr.
Brown or Mr. McNeil, and from this
draft had had the bill prepared. He
believed lie had shown tho bill to Mr.
Wells beforo preparing the transmitting message. So far as his recollection was concerned, the bill camo to
him in virtually tho form lhat it was
presented. Ho bad noticed the contents of tho bill, but had not been
asked for, or given any advice concerning it. He had looked for the original
draft but could not. find it. The open
privilege for selection in this bill
seemed rather broader than usual,
such bills generally restricting to a
certain contiguous area. The situation In the old bill rested in tho lieutenant governor in council, whereas In
this bill it was vested in the company
without any restriction,
If bis attention hail been directed to
this variation Irom tho conditions of
the old aet. would ho have varied this
section without direction, tho witness
was asked. The reply was that the
bill was a substantive one, and he had
without giving it special attention, assumed that the draft expressed the set-
lied intention of tho government. Ho
believed that Mr. Brown had asked
once or twice if the bill bad beon printed; it was kept back some time by tho
pressuro of office business. lie could
not retnomber having any special instructions respecting the bill; either
.Mr. Brown or Mr. McNeil hud brought
the draft to his office, with the instruc
tlnn that It was to be Introduced as a
government measure, and to get It
printed, lie had not thought it necessary to consult tho attorney general as
the bill would have to como beforo the
government in executive before going
to tho bouse. Witness held that ho
did not exceed his duty In taking this
bill from a gentleman iu Mr, Brown's
position without direction of his department chief; ho had known that the
bill was to go before the government.
He had shown the bill to Hun. Mr.
Wells before requesting the provincial
secretary's olllco to prepare the transmitting order in council. Ho had not
considered it necessary to consult the
attorney general, and had not done so.
It was" only a question with bim of
showing tlio chief commissioner the
bill in typewritten, or ill printed form.
Be bad shown tho bill to the chief
commissioner, and had been told by
him to go ahead and have the message
prepared to bring the bill before tlie
government in tlio usual way. His directions, if the toi-m could boused,
came from the chief commissioner.

Horses May lie Taken

Earlier this Year Than
Last.
A  gentleman returned Wednci li
frum a trip to the summit tit tho ho ad
waters of tho North Fork of the La
deau river.   He told the  K.uu.i-. thai
he was -surprised at tho rapidity thai
the snow   was   melting.   He said the
season is farther advanced than ii wae
last year   at   this date, and  in...   r
-hurt time horses may be taken up iu
ihe mountains and work may be begun
earlier than   many were figurlnj
lie thinks tlie past  wlntor a very pi
euliar ono   for   tlie   fall   of snow was
really greater at the base than up neai
tho summits. Of course lhe snow me
away move quickly down .low,  but it im
*,oin,_; fast on the summits.   Thore an

Another good feature about this

slides. These slides were an annoy-
ar.ee to parties who desired to gcL to
their properties early. The one below
Circle City is generally a bad ono, but.
this year It is very sinalh That is accounted for by the fact of the snow fall
being light.
This good news   will be  learned by
Eagle readers  with delight,  and ii

even more eventful than was expected.

to us about the wisest course that
could be followed. The people have
lost confidence in the house as it is
now constituted, and they want a
general renovating such as a general election would give. True,
many members of the present house
nre honest, capable men, and no
better could be found, but there is
nothing like a general election to
restore confidence among the electorate. Premier Prior seems to have
done the right thing so far and his
name has not been besmirged by he
being implicated in the crookedness.

Placer miners will be interested
to learn that alluvial gold has been
,daccd on the tree list.    There   ate
��� >ther   changes   in  the tariff   that
night have been  made lhat would
iave helped largely lo bring about
i.e prosperity in mining circles that
s bound to come when the industry,
specially quartz  mining,  receives
lie recognition that its importance
lustifies.    The people of this prov-
nce   fully  believed  some  specific
ecognition would have been given
,o the oit expressed  wishes  of the
���sootenay lead mining men, but this
nutter was allowed to pass without
action being taken.    However,  the
people of the Kootenays will not be
discouraged.    They  will   fight  till
ibis matter is  rectified.    It  is  cer-
tainly shortsightedness ofthe Laurier government to treat British Columbia so shabbily,  and they will
learn, possibly too late, how they
blundered.     By encouraging  mining at this lime  the  country would
he helped to a  position oi affluence
more than  in  any other way, for
li. C. is admittedly the best mining
country   on   the  North   American
continent,  for her resources  have
only begun to be developed.
Rock continues to fall at Frank,
Alberta, and it is thought this will
be the case most of the season on
account of large bodies being
broken off. It has been suggested
that if dynamite were put in the
crevices the rock might be knocked
down all at once, but this has not
been done yet. The town is practically deserted, it being deemed
unsafe for anyone to remain. The
Northwest government ordered
everybody to leave, and those who
were rendered destitute will have
their present requirements provided
free of cost. The ��� mines are supposed to have suffered very little
damage internally and as soon as
work can be resumed with safety,
the company will start shipping coal.
The owners of the Blairmore coal
mines, a few miles above Frank,
are taking advantage of the temporary close down at Frank and are
making haste to get their mine
opened, thinking, herhaps, they
may secure the C. P. R. custom for
fuel.
The programme recently decided
on by the management of the Great
Western and Silver Cup  mines  lor
the coming season will have a most
significant   bearing   on the   future
veil being of the town of Ferguson.
The institution of  these new works
shows that the companies owning
the  mines have confidence in the
sliijing proportions of the mines.
This looks well for the camp, for
the company have had as  good experts as there are examining the
property   (requently   and   development has been carried on according
to the advice of these expert engineers.    The company find  they
have sufficient ore to warrant the
erection of a large  plant  and  this
���jives the town and camp a position
of  permanency.     This   will   give
other companies confidence to hope
that their ore bodies will prove of
large dimensions, and it will tend to
attract capital to lhe camp.

Just what lhe result will be of the
revelations that are being made at
Victoria in connection with the attempted steal of public lands of the

LARDEAU MINES, LTD.
The three claims owned by the company are the "Lardeau
Queen," the "Lardeau King" and the "Lardeau Prince," nil abutting
end to end, through which three leads pass the entire length, situated at the head of Lexington oreek, in tho Lardeau mining division
of West Kootenay, British Columbia.
t These three claims are located on tho western slope of Goat Mountain, the lines being north-westerly and south-easterly, and form ono
complete portion of Mineral land of about 150 acres. They lie oast
less than four miles up from Pish river.
The group lies in the "Sitting Bull" and "Wild West" belts,
two of the strongest and best known leads in that district, and work
already done on apjacent extentions has given most satisfactory
results as to extent of ore bodies and increased values with depth.
The formation is slate and (schist, lying in an immense lime
dyke, and the cropplngs of the leads are generally topped with heavy
iron capping and quartz, whieh gives assay, from $8 up on the
surface.
VEINS AND WORK DONE
Exploitation consists of two open cuts along the surface for a
distance of twenty feet, which exposed a body of argentiferous
galena over 8 inches in width. The value of this oro body was -Ku.GO
on the surface, but at a depth of less than three feet it-has increased
to $40.60. To tap this ore showing and the massive iron capped
ledge cIobo to which it lies the present tunnel was commenced and
is now in a distance of 82 feet. Another .25 feet of crosscnttiug
should reach this ledgs at a dopth of about 125 feot. Whon til feet
had been driven, an almost'solidbody of iron ore three feet thick
was encountered in the tunnel lying against a wall of slate, A
sample at this point assayed $77.60 in gold, silver, copper and load.
At a distance of 14 feet from this lead a line body of ore has been
encountered which, when crossed, proved to be seven and a half feet
wide, carrying the finest looking mineral yet found on tbe property.
A third ledge which contains the richest ore and widest surface
showing, will be reached about July 1st. This ledge when
encountered, will be from 12 to 15 feet wide and great results are
expected.
The property has an excellent surface showing. The avorago
assays are most encouraging, considering the great width and con-
tinuancy ot the leads across the country with such great width and
prominence ofthe surface judging from other properties in the near
viciulty, some of which are on the same lead and have developed
very rich ore bodies.
In conclusion I would say that tho Lardeau Minos are as good as
any, it not the beBt, in tho vicinity, and I verily believe with a
nominal expenditure, they should be mado dividend paying in a
short time, and I would strongly recommend extensive development
toward that end.
