granted that tliey are satisfied.
Tho new ore body in tho Lo Roi at
Ros6lond has been uncovered in the
800, tho 000 and the 1350 foot levels.
The ore is the usual gold-copper, and
has been found south of the old workings in tho mino. Its discovery is the
result of development work which has
been going on for the past year. The
ore varies greatly in value, but most of
it runs $12 to $15.
Rossland Shipments.
A report of tho oro shipments of
Rossland camp and other mining news
is at hand. Up to Feb. 20th tho ship
ments were as follsws:
Le Roi, 5,370 tons; Centre Star, 1,350;
War Eaglo, 1,200; Kootenay, 210; Jumbo, 350; Lo Roi No. 2, 570; Le Roi No.
2 (milled), 340; Spitzoc, 200. Total for
th? week, 9,590 tons, and for the year
to date, 02,000 tons.
Tho event of tho week was the report
of tho Lo Roi annual mooting, and the
announcement of $50,000 profits in Jan-
uary. It is believed here that this record can bo maintained readily in tho
future, owing to tho developmout of
large and good grado oro bodies ln the
Lo Roi deep levels.

on tho tank house for tlio cyanide feature of tho process The crushing machinery is practically completed. The

Ed. Ward and Olnoy Reid, two of
Ferguson's six-footers of Nova Scotian
rearing, startod out bright and early
Saturday morning last in search of a
rare species of animal that is supposed
to exist near tho source of tbe south
fork of the Lardeau rivor. They loft
Ferguson heavily packed, gunned and
knlved, intending to pitoh camp somewhere near the mountain summit that
rises above Ten Milo, and there await
the appearing of tho animal above ro
ferred to.
Some persons maintain that these
gentlemen aro on the samo scent as
woro two other hunters who rendez-
youed near Ton Milo some two months
since, and who wore reported to have
had a unique experience with a certain
well known animal that is frequently
mot in the woods. However, we did
not believe that story; it did not sound
realistic enough for tho Lardeau frontier : but at tho samo time, that makes
this story none the less true.
A " Wonkifinmad has never been
captured or 6hot lo our knowledge in
this district, and if the hunters secure
one it will make the Lardeau famous as
a hunting resort, and also make heroes
of Messrs. Ward and Raid. Tbey also
hope to bag numerous cariboo and bear
of all kinds, mafy orders having being
booked for heads and pelts before
leaving.
Wo may say this hunting trip is no
birthday dream. It was conceived in
sincerity and aftermaturedellberation,
and the Eagle's best wishes are extended for the success of tho gentlemen's
enterprise and daring.

Reduced Freight Rates.
Whon Harry li. Macdonoll, goneral
freight agent of the Kootonay-Boundary
Hues of the C. P. R., was seen by a Nelson Nows reporter in regard to a reduction in freight rates, he seid in part:
" Wo have reduced tho price of haul-
ago of oros from Phoenix, to thc suiolt-
ers at Grand Forks, Greenwood and
Boundary Falls to 30 cents, per ton."
" What was the former rate ?"
"Tho rate was 371 eonts per ton to
oaoh of theso point... Tho reduction is
71 cent.*) per ton."
"What aro tho distances over which
the ore is hauled ?"
"Grand Forks Is 23.7 miles from
Phoenix, Greenwood 20 milos, and
Boundary Falls 25 miles," roplied Mr.
Macdonnell.
Property Changed Ownership.
Frank Barber, until Monday bookkeeper for S. Daney, purchased on Saturday last tho King's hotel of James
Cummings. Mr. Barber has takou possession, and will endeavor to conduct
a first-class house. The hotel is the
largest in Ferguson, is well furnished,
lighted by electricity, heated by furnace, and is ln shapo to accommodate a
large number of guests.
Mr. Barber is a pioneer of the Lardeau, and knows everybody, therefore
ho should got his share of patronage.
Ho is an Englishman by birth, but lias
beon in tho Canadian west long enough
to have gained a thorough knowledge
of western peoplo nnd their ways. We
have never seen Frank use a corkscrew,
hut wc boliovo ho can do It. " I'll take
sherry, pleaso.   Well, hero's a ho 1"
Ohoioo Gleanings.
Mr, and Mrs. A. G Hill and family,
of Eight Mile, went out to Spokane on
Wednesday morning. Thoy will remain across the line until tbe Silver
Cup mine resumes operations.
Change of Ownership.
Messrs. McKinnon & Sutherland bavo
purchased the stock of Geo. B. Batho &
Co. The store bui Id ing has boen leased,
and Mr. Jno. Cameron is in chargo with
a very good stock of general merchandise. Tho stock was woll choson and Is
mostly new goods.
Thero is a very general Impression
in tho minds of smokers that tho moor
schauin part of the pipo, whieh they
treasure so carefully and tako so much
prldo and satisfaction in "coloring," iu
compressed sea foam. Such, however,
is not the caso. The German word
meerschaum means, In English, foam
of tbe sea, but its formation has nothing
to do with the sea. It is a kind of clay,
comes out of mines like coal and is
found only in Turkoy.
The miners at Snow Creek, Oregon,
havo struck. Thoy were getting $3 for
nine hours' work. They demund $3.50
and ton hours. The fact of them asking for a longer working day will bo interpreted as an evidence of lunacy by
the Colorado agitators.���Ores and

FRIDAY. FEBRUARY 20, 1904.
THB MINING ASSOCIATION.
The second convention of the
British Columbia Mining Association was opened at Victoria on
Monday last. The attendance was
not so numerous as last year, except from the larger cities, which
vied with each other in an effort to
get control of the association as far
as possible, and to secure whatever
advantages that might be going, as
well as to safeguard the interests of
the district with which they are
most closely identified.
The association has certainly been
a means of doing much good to the
mining industry, although it has
been criticized with seeming justice
for extravagance in the use ot.lunds
at the disposal of the executive.
However, the association is a very
useful and necessary organization
in this province, and its scope of
usefulness will become broader as it
gets older. Its suggestions will also
have more weight when it attains
greater permanency ; that is, when
it Is seen lhat the institution is here
to stay. While the association has
not so many members as it had one
year ago, it has better officers and
consequently belter management,
and we confidently hope to see a
very strong executive elected tor the
coming year.
Since the last convention was
held, great changes for the better
are noticeable all over the province;
the country seems to have entered
upon a new era ot prosperity.and nothing can fosterthis growth so much
as a goorl live association.to safeguard the interests of the country's
chief industry. While Ferguson is
not directly represented, yet there
are many warm sympathisers with
the body in our town.
EDITORIAL NOTES.
By instructions from the general
manager of the Imperial Bank of
Canada, the Branch at Ferguson
wiP, until further notice, be kept
open only on Tuesday and Friday
each week. The bank offices will
be retained, but the staff will go to
Trout Lake, one member coming
up on the days specified to do business at this branch. Mr. Macdonald, the manager, has assurance
from headquarters that the new arrangement is only temporary, the
present volume of business not warranting the maintenance of two
branches in the Lardeau, and Trout
Lake is more c >n\eni?nt!y situated
to control the bank's business at
Poplar and Camborne.
Tlie nations of Europe are becoming alarmed at the war proposition ol the far east, fearing that
mo.-t of the larger powers may be
drawn into the conflict. They do
not wish this to come about, but a
false move would do it. France,
England and Germany are prepar
ing lor the worst, and a note of
warning lias also been sounded in
. .j L.iUe-i States Congress,
France has notified Spain to be
ready in case Great Britain makes a
move in India.
There are golden opportunities
for prospectors who are industrious
in the Lardeau, and we expect the
hills between Ferguson and Poplar,
which have never been more than
casually looked over, will be thoroughly searched for free gold in the
season that is drawing near. Gold
was traced last autumn right
through to Ferguson, then the snow
came and the search was postponed.
Silver is away up again. The
rise comes at a good time of the
year, and we may expect the tonnage of Kootenay ore shipments to
increase accordingly, for in the past
the output has been influenced largely by the price ol the metals. Let
the price ascend���the country can
bear it.
Beyond a few transfers of interests in mining claims, the month of
February has been remarkably quiet
in mining circles throughout the
Lardeau, Still, we look for matters
to brighten very shortly, and hope
to see things better than ever belore when the season opens properly.

Mr. and Mrs. II. Godsoo, of Trout

Tuesday.
Thc Ferguson driving club had a
littlo outing as fur as Trout Lake on
Wednesday afternoon.
' A number of the Silvor Cup miners
aro in Ferguson enjoying tho amusements of metropolitan life.
Rev. II. A. Solly, episcopal minister
of Trout Lake, paid a visit to the For-
gu.-.on hospital on Tuesday.
Nearly every mining camp in the
country anticipates a boom in tlie
spring not even excepting Sandon.
J. B. Manross, wife and child, went
out Wednesday morning to spend a
month at Kamloops, whore Mrs. Manross has a sister,
Thc boat from the south was lato on
Wednesday nigbt, consequently there
was no mail assorted iu Ferguson till
next morning.
When we remember thc predicament
wo wero in last year with no mails and
nothing but snow, wo feci that wo are
singularly favored this year.
Alex, Crawford, of Beaton, proprietor
of tho stage lino and freighting aud
livery stables doing business all over
tho Lardoau, was in Ferguson Tuesday.
Notwithstanding the two big mines
of Ferguson camp being closed, the
company owning them havo more man
in tbeir employment at Five Mile than
they had at tho mines iu previous wiu-
ters.
Numcrouscommercial travellers have
been drumming tbe Lardeau towns du.
ring tho past week. They find it very
convenient to be able to mako connections from Nelson through the Lardeau
to Revelstoke.
It looks vory much as if Ferguson
peoplo would be a warm lot next summer, for tho weather has continued too
mild all winter to make ice for packing purposes. Drinks, ice cream, etc.,
will have to be served hot.
Ferguson has a branch of tho government circulating library, which has a
large number of patrons. Tho books
in this library are choice selections of
fiction, history, travel, biography nnd
scientific works. Mr. A, P. Rankino is
local librarian.
Every Indication points to the fact
that tho Lardeau is destined to be the
great free gold district of Canada.
There are more lodes of payable gold
quartz thore than in any yther section
twice its size between the Atlantic and
the Pacific���Rossland Miner.
Andy Craig and Ed. Hillman are
pushing development on tho Horseshoe
at a rapid pace. Thoy are preparing
to ship another carload of ore. Tho
shipments in the past have given a
g.'oss value of $150 per ton. Tho Horseshoe is known to be a good properly.
J. C. Kirkpatrick says Ferguson's
streets will be crowded with people Inside ot two months. We would advise
the oity fathom to bo prepared for the
rush, and havo tho snow shoveled from
tho walks. That may be why tho Imporial bunk will havo tho bulk of their
cash removed to Trout Lake,
J. C. Nosbltt, of Trout Lake, has sold
only one of his many properties on
Rapid and Poplar creeks. Jack says he
will need to get enough money to start
a bank before ho could be induced to
part with all his holdings in that camp.
We knew Jack years ago, and he* had a
habit then of acquiring good things.
Well, ho was roared in the right country for that.
Today is near the end of February,
and there are no signs of Trout Lake
freezing over and navigation closing.
Neither is there any sign of navigation
being interfered with by lee or snow
over the north eastern arm of Arrow
lakes. Should our hopes be realized in
this respect, it will be the first winter
. of uninterrupted communication with
outside points that we have known.
