LONG TUNNEL
One Hundred and Fifty Foot Contract Let to Local Man.
Water Power Will Be Used To
Compress Air for the
New Drills.
The long talked ot Sunshine tunnel
to tap the Silver Cup vein at the 700
foot level, hus been started. A contract
ior the first 150 ieet was let to A. P.
Garret last week and work is now under
way. There is already some 50 Ieet ot
tunnel started and this contract will
bring it up to 200. The expected length
ot the tunnol is about 1,500 Ieet and as
it is all drifting on the ledge interesting developments aro looked foi*. The
present contract will tap tho ore body
of the Sunshine at least IM) feet bolow
the present workings. Tlie Horn-Payne
company took 100 tons of ore out of the
SunBhiue which netted them $110 per
ton. The Sunshine ore body in the old
workings is of a good length, nut quite
narrow, tho it Is confidentially exnected
that the present contract will open up
a wider body of ore and should this be
the case with tho known length of the
ore shute we may look for some big
shipments from this property in the
near future. It is the intention of the
company to install machinery as soon
as tbe snow goes off so that a thorough
examination of tbe ground will be
possible. The water power now going
to waste will be utilized to run the
plant. At the Silver Cup they aro still
sacking ore and it is the company's in-
tontlon to ship nil summer. There is
also some four thousand tons of 2nd
class oro on the dump which it is intended to ship to the Vulcan smelter
in Ferguson. The road from Ferguson
to Ten Milo will be a scene of great
activity this summer and unless the
government does considerable fixing on
it. Tlie mud will be so deep that the
road will be impassable and development will be delayed. The mineral tax
on Cup and Triuno ore will amount to
several thousanddollars for the coining
summer and it is only right that tho
government should fix tbis trunk road
so that it will stand tho traffic.
at about $250,000,0(10. As labor Is cheap
and the oro can bo brought to this
country in ballast for littlo or nothing,
a large proportion of this sum will be
net profit.���Ores and Metals.
II. C. Mining.
The history of many mlnlning districts inoludes: First an initial boom
accompanied by wild-catting and stock
gambling; second a consequent crash,
followed by a long period of noglo.t;
third a final revival of operations on a
sound, legitimate basis.
In British Columbia we have seen
the Initial boom with speculative accompaniments; there has followed a
period of neglect which is not yet over,
but there begin now to appear signs of
reviving interest in the industry. A
great deal of stoady development work-
is being quietly prosecuted, and we do
not doubt that British Columbia mining will before long be reestablished
on a healthy, prosperous basis. We do
not mean tbat there will be a rehabilitation of stock market quotations, but
we think that there are the makings in
the western province of a goodly number  of    dividend   payers.���Toronto

Railroads In the Yukon.
An Ottawa dispatch says that the
Canadian Hallway committee has re*
fused the application of tbo Yukon Pacific railway for permission to build
from Pryamid Harbor to Whito Morse
Pass. The minister of railways and
canals, Mr. Blair, announced that the
government would adhere to tho policy
of declining to grant charters to railways with terminal in American territory. The company's charter was
amended, giviug power to build from
Whito Horse in a southwesterly direction to the boundry line betweon the
provinces of British Columbia and the
territories, or about 20 miles from the
international boundary lino.

World-Beating Silver Mine.
A. W. McCune, a mining man of Salt
Lako City, has recently acquired a
mine in Peru, which, if tho reports of
the examining engineer and others are
correct, is one of the wonders of tho
mining world. The mino is tlie Cerro
de Pasco, which was discovered by an
Indian in 1030, and hos boen worked
almost constantly since that time, boing credited with the enormous production of $566,000,000. The ores wore
exceptionally rich up to 1780, but sinco
then tho values have declined, tho average value in silver being from twelve
to fifteen ounces. Thore are millions
of tons of this class of ore exposed,
however, all of whicli carries a certain
percentage of copper, to which vory
little attention has heretofore beon
paid. Besides the standing oro thero
aro enormous dumps, the accumulation
of 20*1 yoars of operation, in whicli
there aro other millions ol tons of ore
carrying a sufficiently large percentage
of copper to pay for treatment. Thousands of tons of this ore havo recently
been purchased that will run from forty
to fifty percent. In coppor and fifteen
ounces of silver to the ton. Tlie report
of tbe engineer shows that thero aro in
sight moro than 10,000,000 tons of ore
lhat will average from twelve to fifteen
per cent, copper, and estimates the
gross value of tho motal that can bo
extracted without further development
il RICH STRIKE IN
In Mine That Lay Idle for Years
Was Located Over Ten Years
Ago���Mr. Fowler, and Old Miner,
Made the New Discovery.
The story of the Providence mine
near Greenwood Is interesting as showing how mines are sometimes abandoned and afterwards worked again, only
to find that the largest and richest oro
bodies had beon left untouched by the
first workings, says the Simllkameen
Star.
Tho Providence was located over ton
yoars ago, and u Spokane company
headed by Howard C. Walters, secured
control of tho prospect and did some
development work. Very rich oro was
taken nut, which was shipped by mules
to where the city of Grand Forks
now situated. From there it was sent
to Marcus over tho wagon road, and
thenco to the Tacoma smelter by rail
Tho ore was then very rich, running
hundreds of dollars to the ten, and in
spite of very high transportation
charges, netted a largo profit to the
owners of tho claim. Tlie values wero
in gold, silver and copper, and tho
property became noted throughout the
Boundary, when such low-grade properties as the Old Ironsides and Mother
Lodo bud few to speak well uf them.
In 1883 when silver dropped, silver
properties became a drug on the market. Added to this was tho fact that
Mr. Walters and his associates thought
that they had dug out and shipped the
best oro in tho mine, nnd thoy decided
to discontinue all work on the prororty.
So tho Providence wns forgotten for
a number of years, but being a crown
granted claim was hold by the original
owners.
Lust year Mr, Fowler, and old minor
of many years experience in nearly all
parts of tho western American continent, looked the property over and concluded ho had found just whut he
wanted. Accordingly ho secuicd a
lease from tho owners, at the same timo
it is said ho also secured a bond on tho
Continued on .'age Throi;,
A great deal of interest has been
aroused in mining men by the announcement that the American Institute of Mining Engineers will probably
Include this provinco in their annual
excursion itineary next year. Altogether, it is understood, the party may
number three hundred of the most
prominent mining mon of thocontinent,
and thoir stay in British Columbia will
be nearly two months. Thoro are
about fifty members of the instituto in
this province, including W. J. Robertson, provincial mineralogist, and nearly
all the prominent mine managers and
engineers, including a number in iho
Boundary.
The instituto has just hold its 32nd
annual meeting in Now York, when
the following officers were elected:
President, E. E. Olcott, New York
City: vice-presidents, (to serve for two
years), 8. E. Emmons, Washington, D,
C; James Gayley, Pittsburg, Pa.; J.
Henry Lee, Carbon Hill, Ala.; managers (to servo three years), E. W.
Parker, New York ci'cy; James VV.
Neill, Salt Lake City, Utah; M. D.
Valentine, Woodbridge, N. J.; treasurer, Theodore D. Hand, Philadelphia,
Pa.; secretary, Rossiter W. Ramond,
New York City,
Thc president, Mr. Olcott, is the
senior member of the firm of Olcott,
Corning & Pool, consulting, mining
and metalurgical engineers, Wall
Street, Now York. Vice-President S.
P. Emmons, of Washington, D. C. is a
prominent member of the United
States geological survey; F. W. Parker,
of Now York, ono of tho managers,
is managing editor of the Engineering
and Mining Journal, while liossiter W.
Raymond, the secretary, will be remembered by mining men as one of the
expert witnesses who gave evidence in
tlie noted Centre Star-Iron Mask lawsuit at Rossland. Tho membership of
tho instituto is ,'1,028, including honorary, life and associate members.
This institute hns grown to bo the
most important mining body in tho
world. It includes among its members
tlie leading engineers of not only the
United States and Canada, but also of
England, Germany, Franco and other
European countries, South Africa and
Australia,
The importance oi an excursion lo
British Columbia by this institute, and
tho probable effect such a visit would
havo upon tho future development of
tho mining resources of the province,
cannot be estimated loo highly. Tho
members who participated In such excursions wero naturally tho engineers
whose opinions influence capital in its
Investments to a greater extent probably thun any other individuals possibly
can do. The mere fact that the council
of the institute favorably considered
invitations sent from local members to
arrange for the next long distant excursion to take in British Columbia,
demonstrated that tlie mineral resources of this country were attracting the
attention of the world at largo and par
ticularly of investors in the United
Statos.
It is quite safe to say that no body of
men has ever visited British Columbia
whose individual and collective Influence is as great with capital as that

Locution of Chiiin,.
A claim may or may not prove of
value to the locater, says tbe Mining
Reporter. There is no harm, however,
in the locator taking as much pains in
laying out his claim as if ho knew it
was worth a million dollars. A little
care in tho marking and measurement
of his claims is always well repaid to
the prospector. The first thing to be
done in laying out the claim is to get
tbe direction of the outcrop, lf it is
not possible to trace the outcrop for
1.500 feet set up a few stakes along the
line of the vein and take the course
with a compass. Make tbis line pass
through the middle points of the end
lines. Then lay out the claim according to thc law of the state in which the
locations are made, i. e., 1,500 feet long
and from 150 to 300 feot in width,
Whenever possible measure the claim
out instead of pacing it. For measuring b claim the writer uses a piece of
light cordage, say three-eights of an
inch in diameter, and three hundred
feet long, with knots to indicate every
50 feet. The use of tape is apt to be
expensive, owing to breakage when
scrambling through the brush and over
rocks. Tho laws relating to location
are simple and readily obtained and
every prospector should have the fundamental points at his lingers' end. Then
observe the laws to the very letter.
Much of tho expensive litigation which
is tho bane of tho mining industry is
directly traceable to careless and faulty
location work.

ABOUT LARDEAU ORES
AND ITS GOLD VALUES
Mining Man Prom Lardeau Distriot
Talks About Gold Values���Belie ves Oro Will Carry Considerable
Gold as Depth Is Attained.
The Rossland Miner has the following to say from an interview with J. W.
Westfall:
"I am perfectly satisfied tbat further
investigation will disclose tho fact that
many Lardeau ores will be found to
carry gold values where nothing of the
kind is now looked for," said J. W.
Westfall when discussing the approaching season In the northern section of tho Kootenays. Mr. Westfall is
a pioneer of tho Lardeau, and is interested in a number of promising properties. Ho has been appointed manager of the property owned by tho
Cariboo Creek Development Syndicate
of Rossland, and leaves In a few days
for the north to assume charge of tlie
work for tho summer.
"In stating that gold values will be
found extensive throughout tho Lardeau, I do not imply that free gold ores
will be found in quantities, for my experience leads mo to heliovo that the
district will not depend upon free-milling ores for the success it will undoubtedly uttuiu among tho mining districts
of the provinco. Tho gold is found in
silver-lead Iron ores, the latter particularly being irapreganated with the
yellow metals in quantities from a trace
to a substantial sum. Within my own
experience I have known of a numbor
of Instances where this has been proved.
In one caso I examined a dump containing a considerable amount of iron oro
that had beon thrown away as valueless. Out of curiosity I took a numbor
of samples of tho rock and had them
assayed, finding to my surprise that the
ore carried 30 ounces of silver, and in
tho particular case of one samplo $40
in gold. This was apparently ordinary
iron such as is common to thc country,
and one could not have told with the
eye or a glass that it contained a trace
I of galona or other values,   It has beeo

Notwithstanding   that   silver   ha
reached the lowest price ever record,'
for that metal,  it,  is nevertheless ,
some Interest to know that there ar
silver mines in the United States tim*
aro paying vory handsomo dividend-
Take, for instance, tho Ontario mino c
Utah.   It recently posted its 224th divi
dond, payable on the 20 ot Juno.   Tin
dividend was 30 cents a share, amomil
ing  to   $15,000,   bringing   tho  tota'
amount of dividends paid by the On
tarlo company up to $14,782,000, am
witb a reserve fund in the treasury p:
$402,828.
The Silver King, also in Utah, ia another instance of a silver mine paying
large dividends in tho face of lov
prices for silver. That property is paying $400,000 a year in profits, some portion of its receipts being from tho golJ
and load values in tho ore. But it is
essentially a silver mine. Within tho
past half-dozen years it has paid its
owners within a fraction of 15,000,000

We must not let the fact that we
need some sidewalks slip away from
our memory. The time is now ripe
ior such enterprise.
ft would greatly benefit the appearance ot Ferguson it the nonresident lot owners would have their
holdings cleared. There are big
patches right in the heart of town
covered with brush,logs and stumps.
It is. the duty of those owning this
property to put it in such a shape
that they will not be an eye-sore to
the whole community. The expense would be trifling and the value of the property would be in
creased to a greater amount than
the cost of cleaning.
The Ferguson hospital is now
under erection and whatever the
opinion of different people may have
been as to the desirability of erect*
ing such a building here, now that
it has been definitely decided to go
ahead, we expect those who were
opposed to its erection will fall into
line and put their shoulders to the
wheel and help to make the thing
the success it should be. We believe in government by the majority
in things of this kind and in this
case the majority has spoken in no
uncertain voice therefore let us sink
our differences and get in and dig.
On another page will be found an
article sent out by the striking employees of Eaton's Departmental
Store. Thc Kagle is of the opinion
that a man should have the privilege under our present system of
buying in the cheapest market and
selling in the dearest, but we wonder whether Eaton's goods are the
cheapest. They arc almost invariably sweat-shop goods made under
conditions which are not at all con
ducive to cleanliness and we think
that the risk ot contracting diseases
offsets any saving which is effected
We would strongly advise our
readers to patronize their home merchants.
demonstrated, however, that the ores
over a widely distributed section of tho
country frequently carry these gold
values, and tbe indications are that as
depth is attained in the working on the
various properties the gold values will
increase That this Is the case is most
gratifying to those interested in the development of the Lardeau, as the gold
values give a stability to the Industry
which is not attained when the contents of ore are not confined to silver
and load, which are more .or less constantly Auctuating in market value."
In connection with the prospects for
tbe season in tho Lardeau it may be
stated that that the projected oponing
of the Lardeau branch of the Canadian
Pacific railroad in lube is awaited with
keen interest throughout the district.
This road into the country being practically an accomplished faet, the attention of the mine owners on the Duncan
river side of the Lardeau divide is
turned toward the Great Northern
with a view to sizing up that country's
intentions respecting the construction
of the Duncan river branch. A report
now in circulation that a Great Northern engineer recently spent some time
at Kaslo in connection with the building of* the new road has stimulated
interest in the proposition, and it is
freely predicted that the Duncan river
railroad will be constructed within a
comparatively short time. The opinion is rife that unless the Great Northern makes a move, the Canadian Pacific Is likely to step in and forestall the
American corporation.

Patronise Home Stores.
There Is a strike on In the printing
department of the T. Eaton company's
departmental store, Toronto, and not
only have the thetatfers of "Old 61"
gone out on strike, but the pressmen,
pressfeedcrs and bookfolders have as
well, and there are others of the employees that may follow suit. We presume it is fairly well understood that
the average wage in this departmental
store to-dny is very small���a mere pittance. Think of asking a man with a
family to provide for and house rent to
pay, etc., to work for $10 a week, and
nine hours a day at that, with high
rents and the price of necessaries of
life advanced from 40 to 50 per cent,
higher than tbey have ever beenl It
is a burning shame���we were going to
say a monstrous crime! There is no
doubt but that, this departmental store
and its factories attempts to set the
standard of wages, and thus the skin-
ning-process is resorted to. Put a man
in tho Central Prison for six months if
he steals some scrap iron from the
Grand Trunk Railway, but lionize and
Idolize him if he has tho ability to skin
his fclloivmen out of a thousand dollars
in hard-earned wages.
Let us appeal to our constituents. Instead of buying through tbe mail order
system of the Eaton company patronize tho merchants In your own vicinity
and keep tbo cash in your own neighborhood. Thov can glvo you as good
bargains, and much bottor for that
matter, than you can obtain in tbis
store. And many so-called "bargains"
are not bargains at ull. Tho most gullible animal In tho world is man, and
there is no gullibility equal to that involved in the bargain hunting humbug.
Thon quit tbe exhibition ot your gulla-
bllity and patronize your "home
stores." ________
Twenty-five girls employed in adance
hall ut Cripple Creek, Col,, went on
strike for a higher percentage on drink
money recently. When the proprietor
refused their demand they marched out
of the hall in a body. The women have
since formed a union. They announce
that unless tho dance hall man surrenders they will stick together and ask
the labor unions to support their strike.
The unions don't, know whether to be
amused or indignant.
Phoenix has established a tailors
union und hopes to secure thc co-opera*
tion of Grand Forki ana Greenwood.
A Righteous Fight,
A Philadelphia dispatch says that
the mine workers throughout tbe entire
anthracite coal regions of Pennsylvania to the number of 143,000 formally
began their struggle on the 12th inst.
for Increased' wages and shorter hours.
Never in the history of hard coal mining has a tie-up been so complete, not
one of tbe 357 dollerles In the territory
being in operation. There is every
indication for the belief that the suspension which was to covor only three
days will be made permanent by tbe
miners' general convention which will
meet at Hazelton on Wednesday. Absolute quiet prevails everywhere to
day.

AID FOR FERGUSON'S HOSPITAL
The minors and business men of
Ferguson have united to erect a hospital hore. This is an absolute necessity as there is no place in whieh we
can properly care for a sick man who
dont happen to havo a home of his own.
There has been about$1,500 subscribed
towards tho hospital locally and tbo
Eaglo has been requested to receive
subscriptions from outside points which
will bo acknowledged through the
columns of the Eagle each week.
There is something like $1,500 moro to
rai6n and we hope that those who have
made money in this camp will remember those who work away from the
comforts of older communities and send
along a liberal sum to help in tho good
work. The hospital will be owned and
operated by tho members of Lardoau
Miners'Union. Address all subscriptions to the Eagle.
