Ferguson,  B. C.,' January 2nd, 1903
$2 aYear
Struck   Fine   Body
Rich Ore
of
This Group Known as the Company's South Property. It
Shows up Well Under Development.
The Mountain Lion Mining Co.,
Limited, of which M. C. Miller, of
Minneapolis is managing director, are
beginning to reap thc fruit of their
enterprise and labor in discovering
what they havo been looking for in
their south proporty. Tho company
purchased the property eighteen
months ago, paying $10,000 cash for It
and they Immediately put men to work
to open it up. Since that time they
have contlnuod to dovolop the property
steadily. Thore was a good showing
on tha surface when they purchased, a
good enough showing to warrant tho
Company purchasing and spending
money to open it up. Tho work done
to date has been productive of good
results though hero as with other
prospects there were times whon tho
outlook did not seem encouraging but
kugh Brown the -company's foreman,
with Innate determination, believed
there wvs a good body of ore lu the
main lead at depth and worked away
with his men till he found it.
The strike made on tbo property a
fortnight ago is an important oue for it
leaves no doubt that tbo company have
a good rich asset in the American and
next season it will undoubtedly prove
another shipping mine added to Lardeau's constantly increasing number.
The American nns the advantage of
being the most deeply dovelopcd property in the Lardeau. The vertical
depth from the surfaco of tho lower
tunnel where the last striko was made
is 1130 feet and the length of tunnol
from the surface to tbo oro is 1000 feet.
The new ore body is two feet wide, ono
foot of which is clean shipping ore and
tho other foot is carbonates. When lt
Is taken Into consideration that this
ore has a gross value of .1H0 to .. lido a
ton, and square feet make a ton,
it will be seen what tho magnitude of
the new strike amounts to, to thc company. This is not the only oro in
sight on the property, Thore aro two
Other tunnels above, one 75 foot below
thp surfacs where six Inches of clean
ore, was encountered. Thon thoro ts
another tunnol about 450 fctit below
the surface but this ono has not been
completed to the point where it would
be expected that the ore body would be
tapped. Mon aro now at work driving
this tunnel. Ore was struck in tlie
lower tunnol whore it encountered tlio
ledge 400 feet from the surfaco but tho
ore body was not so wide nor of as high
grade until tho face was 1000 feet ln.
About 110,000 has been spent by the
Co. in developing tho American, that
added to tho purchase prico makes the
cost of the property a little over $20,
000, but tbe property is easily worth
$100,000. The Mountain Lion people
are certainly deserving of success for
they carry on mining on sound businoss
principles.
Hon. Mr. Profontalno Is authority
for the statem ent that parliament will
meet early In march, when the Grand
Trunk Pacific project will be dealt
witb.
Correspondence.
[The Eagle will not be held responsible  for  the opinions  of its correspondents.]
To the editor of the Eagle,
I wish to address a few words to the
ladies and gentlemen of Ferguson
through the columns of your paper.
A report has been circulated through
tho town that I used very ungentle*
manly and disrespectful language
about the Ferguson ladies. I wish to
state that this is not the case. The
ladies iwho know me in this town
know I would not use such expressions
and I hope the ladies will understand
there is no truth whatever in the
report which has been circulated. Because I am a black man and tlie only
oue of my race in the place and as I am
not in with the gatig they think tliey
can do as they like' with me and please
ladles look over this matter as I am a
married man myself with children and
could not and would not use such
language even if I were on my death
bod, and as they are trying to got me
out of this town thero is nothing too
black for them to say against mo.
I am very BOrry I was led to make
any remarks at all about any of the
former residents of Ferguson but I did
not introduce the subject even about
thoso people, it was introduced by
others and I was led to make a remark
which I was sorry for since it has been
so exaggerated.
Signed,    .1. A. Alexander.
Tlie Eagle receives many letters
each week from subscribers, somo
making enquiries about the camp and
others making enquiries about certain,
properties. We have not published
any letter heretofore but this week
will deviate a little from our usual
course and publish what some of onr
sebseribers think of the Eagle and the
Lardeau.
Paterson, N. J., Deo. 10, '02
Dear Sir,���I herewith enclose two

Many aro wondering if the electric
light will be installed this winter, wo
aro In a position to assure them that it
will. Tho following communication
from Sawyer Bros, will explain itself:
In regard to tho electric light we
may say that our order for supplies,
such as wire, Lamps, etc., has been in
for some timo but wo hare not been
able to get lt sent forward until last
week when we received word that
most of It was shippod from Vancouver
tho rest to follow within a week us the
stock was being comploted rrom the
east. Directly the material arrives we
will In *tall the lights and get tho plant
running. Wo havo secured nn olec-
trlcian so the delay Is just on account
of material.

And Prospects About the
District.
ORE TEAMS ARE ALL BUSY
Hauling Ore to Tr-Jut Lake From
The Shipping .Mines of the
Camp. Excelent Weather
Coniinues.
The mines and prospects of the Ferguson camp aro employing more men
this winter than ever before, moro
properties aro being worked and tho
big mines have a larger numbor of
mon on their payroll than in any
previous whiter. Pretty nearly all the
men who wero working in tho hills
during last summer aro still in the
camp and havo employment iu tho
larger mines, consequent on the mines
increasing their working stall'. Tho
puttiDg In of machinery also mado it
necessary to employ moro men. So
the camp is really in a better position
at the commencement of [903 than
ever before. At the Nottio L. everything is lovely, the machines are
working woll,'the road is in good con
dition for hauling out the daily output of oro and the mine never looked
better.
The Silvor Cup keeps up hor daily
output of ore but little Is being shipped till the tramway is completed
that will take another ten days, but
when Mr. McLeod, the manager of
construction, turns the tram ovor
everything will work well. Tho unusually doep snow bas ihlndered the
work a groat deal.
Tho Sunshine tunnel is progressing
steadily and another One deposit of oru
six feet wide, was encountorca teu
days since, but it did not prove continuous.
Tlie Triune has been temporarily
closed down awaiting the arrival of a
further supply of ore buckets for use
on tho tram.
The Rob Roy was closed down this
week till spring, us the supplies woro
getting short. Tho men got to town in
time to spend New Year's. They sny
tho property looks good and development will be continued uoxt spring.
I'm-iirc Coronation Co.
The above company gave an entertainment in Eagle hall Monday night.
A report had become circulated about
town and even at the mines that tho
entertainment given by this Co. at
Trout Lako Saturday night was a
failure and this together with a heavy
Bnow storm caused a number of people
who had intended coming to stay at
home, however, thoso who did turn out
were well pleased.
There was some delay in commencing
on account of the lime light apparatus
having got broken coming in but the
acetyline gas fixtures wore substituted
and worked nicoly, only tho light was
not strong enough. In fact these
picturts never show well except where
electric light is used. The eruption of
Mount Pelee was shown to good
advantage and was certainly good.
Hundreds of feet of high class moving
pictures were exhibited and the enter
tainment deserved better patronage.
A Knlllng Fray,
On Saturday word came down from
the Nettio L. mine that two of the
employees had got into a fight in one
of tlio cabins tho previous nifht and
one of tho contestents had drawn a
knife and slashed his opponent more
or less severely. As tho participants of
the fray were both well known in town
the affair created considerable excitement.
The matter was threshed out in tho
police court at Trout Lake Tuesday
before magistrates Abbey and M
Pherson the complainant boing taxed
the costs, amounting to between $2,1 and
$30. The affair was caused by one of the
parties accusing the other of touching
him to the tunc of $102. The charge
was that of using a knife with intent
to do bodily injury, but no attempt was
made to prove tho charge. Chief
constable R. A. Upper conducted the
prosecution and R. Hodgo defended.

As a painter of French peasants,
Jules Breton holds a placo nearer to
his lllustrous.predeeessor, Joan Fran-
coiso Millet, than any othor living
artist. Whilo the figures of peasants
he paints have not tho grand elemental
qualities of those of Millet, there are
among them some supberb types. The
subject of tho Free Press, Winnipeg,
given to subscribers to the Winnipeg
Weekly Freo Press, Is a variant of one
which he has frequently painted, but
the "Sheppard's Star" niLks with the
best of the work of this celebrated
painter.
Jules Adolpho Breton was born at
Courrierer, a small village of the PaB-
de-Calais In tho north of France. His
early life and his artistic career, as
well as his theories of art, recounted ln
an autobiography published �� few
rears ago is, interesting reading to
anyone interested in art.

all good being reproductions in

J. W. Westfall, Andy Ward has
proved himself a very successful prospector, having located somo of the

EIGHT HEN BURIED IN SXOV
All Hope of Safety of Men Aban
doned. The First Slide) Eve:
Known to Come Down at
That Place.
One of the most destructive snow
slides that have occurred In the Kootenays took place Christinas night,
resulting in the razing of the Molly
Gibson bunk hou.se, probably the death
of eight men and the m'afming o'
others. The slide was totally unexpected, as since tbe mino buildings
havo been erected no slide has ever
threatened them. The bunk house
which was a two storied frame structure, stood on a small ridgo at the
lower edge of a basin, sloping gradually
up to the glacier that can be seen from
Nelson; below the Kokuneepeaks. The
mino is above the timber line, and is
about 10 miles from Kootenay lake.
The men who aro ln the bunk huu;u
and have not yet been accounted fur,
although possibly some of them are
alive, as given by oue of the survivors
who reaehod the landing yesterday,
are:
L. Bronlee.
M. E. Hall, assayer, Nelson.
W. G. Murphy, Ainsworth.
T. Rouse, Silverton.
W. Collins, Nelson.
Two Italians, (Unknown),
Gee Chip. Chinese cook,
Those accounted for are:
J. A. Campbell, dead.
D. McLaughlin, shoulder dislocated
and leg broken,
J. R. Dunlop, uninjured,

John A. Bell, foreman, one arm cut.

Tho buildings wore worse wrecked
than thought yesterday, and the o/flco,
which was believed to have escaped,
proved to have tho ronf gone, and one
wall and portion of another gone. The
roof of the stables had also beon ripped olT, but tho two horsos aro safe,
although without food. The blacksmith shop was wrecked, and the
entrance ; to No, 4. tunnol caved in
und blocked with debris. The mine
buildings wero situated on it little
tonguu of Und, slightly higher than a
narrow box canon, or crease In the
rook, that runs parallel with tho mountain. Above the buildings was a
ridge of rock, probably a hundred feot
high, which was considered an effective guard to prevent any siidc coming
from above. This ridge, which commenced some distance to tbo wcBt of
tho mine, extends 100 feet to the eastward, at almost an acute angle with
the box canon. The snow on tho
glacier Is froip 12 tt, 20 feet deep and in
the draws between tho peaks thero
are large accumulations. The slide
which did the mischief started from
within the peaks almost directly back
of tho mine. * It swept down till the
ridge was reached and followed it

EDITORIAL NOTES.
The new year is here and 1902 is
no more. The year just closed has
been an eventful one, and yet it was
a period that brought about many
good results and at its close we find
the countries of the civilized world
enjoying peace and comparative
harmony. Except for a few minor
disputes "Peace on Earth and Good
Will to Men" is being enjoyed. The
great struggle in South Africa was
ended near the close of the year;
the great Pennsylvania coal strike
which looked at one time as if it
might last through the winter, was
finally settled and the Venezuelan
affair that looked a month ago as
if it might bring about international complications, is nearing a settlement by it being submitted to the
Hague arbitration tribunal.
The new year dawned upon a
bright unclouded political and
social atmosphere. The people
of Ferguson and the people of Canada have every reason to be thankful for existence in an age of peace
and plenty wilh such bright prospects as are in sight at this time.

 -Montreal
The train on the Lardo branch
was snowbound early last week,
but trains are now running regul
arly again and the usual complement of ore Is being taken out.
Usually the major portion of our
winter's snowfall comes in Febra
ary but this year it came before
Xmas, at least, there is as much
snow on the ground as tell all last
winter and if the usual February
fall should come on top of this then
it will reach to the roof plates. So
much snow coming early has
retarded the prosecution of outside
work. The Silver Cup tram would
have been completed only for Ihis
and saw logs could have been got
out much more cheaply. However,
the camp is experiencing a good
winter with the finest kind ot weather and fairly good times.

LARDEAU MINES, LTD.
The throe claims owned by the company are the "Lardeau
Queen," the "Lardeau King" and the "Lardeau Prince," all abutting
end to end, through which three leads pass the entire length, situated at the head of Lexington creek, in the Lardeau mining division
of West Kootenay, British Columbia.
These three claims aro located ou the western slope of Goat Mountain, the lines being north-westerly and south-easterly, and form one
complete portion of Mineral land of about 150 acres. They lie east
less than four miles up from Fish river.
Tho group lies fn the "Sitting Bull" and -'Wild West" bolts,
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 iu an immense lime
dyke, and the cropplngs of the leads are generally topped with heavy
iron capping and quart-, which gives assays from $8 up on the
surface.
VEINS AND WORK DONE
Exploitation consists of two open cuts along tho surface for a
distance of twenty foet, which exposed a body of argentiferous
galena over 8 inches in width. Tho va'uo of this ore body was 125.110
on the surface, but at u depth of less than three feet it has increased
to $40.00. To tap this oro showing and the massive iron capped
ledge close to which it lies the present tunnel was commenced and
is now in a distance of 82 feet. Another 85 feet cf crosscntting
should reach this ledge at a deptii of about 125 feot. When (il feet
had been driven, an almost* sol id body of iron ore three feet thick
was encountered in the tunnel lying against a wall of slate. A
sample at this point assayed $77.00 In gold, silver, copper and lead.
The property has an excellent surface showing. The average
assays are most encouraging, considering the great width and con-
tinuanoy of the leads across the country with such great width and
prominence ofthe surface judging from other properties in the near
vicinity, some of which are on the same load and have developed
very rich ore bodies.
In conclusion I would say that tho Lardoau Minos are as good as
any. If not the best, in the vicinity, and I verily believe with a
nominal expenditure, they should be made dividend paying in a
short time, and I would strongly recommend extensive development
toward that end.
