Production of Metals.
The I'ro.iiich'.l Mine nil ok I it. Reports for
190.1, uilll UlfieloscH Interesting
1'lictt Kela.tl.ij-; to Output.
A close perusal of the report of the
minister of mines for 1003, as prepared
by W. F. Robertson, the provincial
mineralogist, discloses some interst-
ing facts. Tho total valuo of the goid
produced for the year was $5,878,036, of
which live-sixths was from tho lode
mines and one-sixth from placer properties. The latter gold came principally from tho Atlin and Casslar gold
Holds. The output of gold showed a
decrease from the previous year of
$84,873, nf which 875,903 was In lodo
gold. The falling off Is chiefly duo to
tbo decreased output of the Rossland
Silver showed tho heaviest falling
off. The output of this metal was
2,996,204 ounces, or 931,713 ounces less
than in 1002. Lead also foil oil largely.
There was produced in the year
18,'089,283 pounds, or 4,447,098 pounds
less than in 1902. The outlook is for
a largely increased output of silver
and lead during tbe current yenr. Tho
effect of the bounty on lead is just
commencing to be shown, and thisl
combined with tho fact that the government will allow the bounty to be
extended to load oro exported aftor the
Canadian smelters have been supplied
with'-all that they can treat, should
more than double tho output of both
metals, during tho current year.
Copper Is the only metal that has
shown an increaso of importance. The
output during tho year wns 34,359,821
pounds, which is an increase of 4,723,80*1
pounds ovor 1902. The guins were
principally in tho Boundary aud in
thu mines of Vancouver Island and the
const. The Boundary output Is certain
to show an increase of betweon 25 and
and 35 per cent this year, and the
coast and Vancouver Island mines will
show considerable of an augmentation.
The tcudeucy in the Boundary is in
the direction of merging several groups
of low-grade gold-copper properties
into one company. Besides the Granby
Consolidated thero are two large combinations which are now in the course
of formation, which will result in a
very largo increase in the Boundary
output, as soon as the companies now
engaged In foiming morget'3 got earnestly at work. In the Rossland dis
trlct throe of tho larger companies
have un amalgamation in contemplation, which, if it i3 completed, should
result in un increased tonnage and a
larger production of gold and copper.
In both these cauips it has been found
that tho surest road to profit lies in
operating on a large sealo, as it Is found
to bo the most economical and profitable. We may, therefore, look for a
largely increased output of oro in the
Boundary and Kossland sections during tho latter quarter of the present
year, and also In 1905.
The produotion of coal during tho
year was 1,108,194 tons, or 229,200 tons
less than In the preceding your. This
was principally due to the fulling off
In the demand from California, whore
crude oil had supplanted coal ln many
instances aB fuel, The coke produotion
wus 105,543 tons, an inereaso of 37,528
ton's ovor the preceding year. Tbe
gain is due lo the increased demand
from the Hinelters, whicli will show an
augmentation during tho present year,
otvittg to the faot that more gold-copper
and silver-lead ores will be produced
and reduced this year than last.���Dally

To Subscribers and Advertisers.
As will be seen by the notice
appearing at the head of this column, a change of proprietorship
has been made. In taking hold of
the reins and making my initial
bow to subscribers and advertisers,
I embrace the opportunity for outlining the policy of the Eagle under
a new regime.
In politics the Eagle will remain
unchanged, believing that our Provincial Government is in harmony
with the condition and spirit of the
times, and that the country would
be better with the Conservative
party at the head ot Dominion
affairs. In Town and Local matters the screech of the Eagle will
always be heard in favor of any
project for the advancement of the
district. Mining and the lumber
industry will receive their full quota
of attention. Fair, impartial re*
ports may always be relied upon, it
being my intention to throw open
these columns for any and everything of interest.
I bring to the Eagle 21 years
practical experience of the newspaper and printing trade, and advertisers may rest assured -of care<
ful attention being devoted to their
respective needs. Job printing will
receive prompt attention, and as
facility and ingenuity will here be
found in harmony, good results
may be expected by patrons of the
Job department.
I respectfully solicit a continu-
of the support and patronage bestowed upon The Lardeau Eagle
hitherto, and with the assurance oi
an earnest endeavour that such
support shall be well-merited, I am,
obediently yours,
Jno. J. Atherton.
and its news items are largely
quoted. For the present I bid fare*
well as a publisher, and thank sub*
scribers and advertisers for the en
couragement given me in my effort
to present the truths of the Lardeau,
and in keeping the Eagle soaring
high aud in good company.
Very sincerely yours,
E. G. Woodward.
With tho St. Louis Fait* attracting
the attention ol the world, local enterprise is our only reason (or asking the
oft-repeated question, " What is the
Lardeau doing by way of an exhibit?"
Up to the present there h.13 been an
apathy by the powors-tbat-be towards
such a project, but in some quarters a
semblance of interest and activity is
manifest. That the exhibition should
prove aa excellent opportunity for the
the Lardeau district, goes without say
Ing, and as all the world and his wife
will pay a visit to the great exhibition
it is a litting and opportune occasion Ior
this district to contribute a quota towards a representative exhibit of our
free gold-bearing oros. Tho Lardeau
is ln a position to make such brave
showing lhat the tongue of every
visitor to the exhibition would be set
wagging to the advantage of tbis
country. We have heard it suggested
that "most of the mine managers in
B. C. would rather spend 23 hours a
day in criticising tho Mineral Act than
one in helping to advertise tho resources of the province," but bo thnt
ae it may, It is certainly up to those
most concerned to flaunt bufure un enquiring public tho vast resources and
wonderful ore productions of the
wealthy Lardeau.
With this issue the Lardeau
Eagle continues the journalistic
race under new auspices, the undersigned having sold the paper to Mr
J. J. Atherton, who comes well re
commended as a printer and journalist. I have no doubt my successor will give you a good local paper,
but he will need all the encouragement and support that the people of
Ferguson can give; but I feel assured this will be readily given.
Since I bought the Eagle two years
since, I have had no complaint.
Every male resident of the town
and camp subscribed for the paper
without a single exception, and the
business people stood well by the
paper in advertising and job printing
patronage. The town is small, and
the paper needs all the support that
can be given. The paper continnei
to enjoy g wide circle ot readers,
It's just as well these day to keep the

The Lardeau Eagle will give you the latest reliable information on Mining and Lumbering.
The Winnipeg Free Press is one of Western
Canada's greatest family newspapers.
From Vancouver comes a story of a
bear, two cubs, and a cyclist.   Tho latter was coasting down a steep grade
near the city when thb playful cubs,
who occupied the wrpng Bide of the
eoad, became ontanglcd  In the spokes
of the wheel.    Tbe oj'filist embraced
Mother Earth, and tho dismal howls of
the bruised bruins brought the female
parent on the scene.    The cyclist at
thlH juncture was engaged in removing
an encumbrance uf fur and real estato
Irom his mouth, when the old gri.aly,
cautiously   drawing' near  tho  fallen
wheelman,  gave  that  worthy  a  rebounding smack on his thinking apparatus, and  then���with  Its cubs stole
nway into the bush, leaving the cyclist
to his own reflections.   Beforo regaining the city the cyclist had heaps of
time wherein to cogitate on the ways
of wheels and bears, and there is no
doubt he bas strong personal opinions
of each���beirs ln particular.
Mr. Hooley, who is held for fraud in
England, has promoted many companies
which turned out bubbles. During his
examination It transpired that after
being "presented" with $185,000.00 by
a Mr. Paine, the glib Hooley in turn
"presented" Mr. Paine with a handsome lump of quartz. Tho transaction
reminds mo of a good story, once told I
believe, at a meeting of financiers;
"'Pray send specimen of quartz," tbe
chairman of a gold-mining company
i wired to the mines manager, Tho
quartz was exhibited to i!,e share-
i holders, and general lv admired, " Proceed with tbe crushings," wired the
chairman, when tho resolutions had
been adopted. '* Will crush at once,"
was tlio reply of tho manager, " kindly
return the quartz."
