"Many rumors have boen current

Fkroiison, B. G. April 10.���"Your
correspondent bas been asked to send
out the facts iu regard to tbe buspitai
movement, so that subscribers and tin
public generally  in  Revelstoko and
other points will have a clear understanding of tbe situation.   Some peoplo appear to have a wrong impressior
about tho matter.   In January a public
meeting of Forguson miners and citl-
zons decided thut a hospital inlhucuinp
was an urgent  necessity and amon*-
other steps they sent a petition to tbe
government, for a grant    Tbere being
some talk about a hospital nt Troul
Luke, the Ferguson  people offered to
dlsjuss iho matter with a view to the
two towns co-operating. This proposal,
however,  for some reason  unknown,
was not entertained by Trout   Luke,
who shortly afterwards  sent deputations tu Itevcl t <ki\ Cumboi'iieund ever
tu Ferguson to solicit subscript!*)! b for
a hospital at Tr.nit Lake.   Many poo
pie, e pecluily at Kevelstoke. subscribed liberally under tho impression thai
it was a joint affair and that il was be
Ing b eked by Ferguson and the Lar
deau generally.   A public meeting wat
afterward- nold hero  which  decided
after full and mature discussions to act
under the Minors' Union, as it wu6 felt
tbat a hospital either here or at thr
lake could not be efficiently maintained
without   their   support,     Then   the
Miners' Union mot and decided, having
got tbe support of lhe whole town, tl
go ahead and make arrnngoments for
building n hospital at Ferguson,   Thc
mom be s of tho union headed the sun
scription list with $.'i(lO and alroady thf
handsome stun of $1,2110 bus been se
cure , witb considerable moretocorae
The lumber is now nearly all ready and
building will eommeneo us soon as tin
snow is  sufficiently off the  ground.
Volunteer labor will contribute largely
to the erection of the hospital,   Tbi
most important feature of a hospital is,
not the building of it, but miiiiituininp
it after it is built.   This is adequately
pruvided for.   Tho Minors' Union comprises about lOU members and ihe dollar a month  which they now pay for
medical attendance will be paid to th-
liospiial.    This,  together   with  tho
monthly medical fees, paid by miners
whe are not members of the union, will
provide a maintenance fund of about.
(1,200s year.   As this is likely to hi
supplemented   by  a  good  gram, thr*
question of maintenance Is practically
smiled. 'I'ho people of Ferguson rocog
nizethatu hospital is nf no pecuniar)
benefit lo a town and they would hat,

18 months, thu last payment of $-7,000

This company as wu know has
already done considerable worlc on

their intention to employ at least 20
men all through tho cutniug summer.
No  Altm-_.tl.ni-i.
Tho mining committee In tbe legislative bulla al Victoria have decided to
make no alterations in the mining laws
this session as such alterations wuuld
have a bad effect on the industry. Tbo
committee is worthy uf praise,���Boole-

but their advances boing received will
u dlstl ctly cold shoulder nothing re

with tleir customary enterprise they

On firs! page will be found lhe re*
port ol the proceeding of the Kamloops labor convention. We would
advise all working men to take the
platform adopted there and study it
carefully. It is nnt a radical platform by any means, hut is of such
a nature lhat anyone who bos the
best interests of his counrty ai
heart should certainly be able to endorse its leading plank,**. The Socialists were in a decided majority
'n the convention, but verv sensibly
refrained from pushing ideal Socialism into the platform lo be adopted
by the convention.   The obj.:ct ol
There seems to be a widespread
impression lhat R. P. Pettipiece is
still connected with this paper. This
is incorrect excepting such connet-
t on as a man has when he is owner
ol a property, but has rented it for
a stated term. We have leased the
Eagle lor one year with an option
to purchase it at any stated lime during the life ot said lease. For the
benefit of those who may still he
skeptical we will say that it is out
linn intention to buy the business
inside ol three months if we -can
raise the necessary dust which we
see nothing to hinder us from doing,
but So tar as Mr. Pettipiece coming
hack lo run the Kagle we don't expect . to ever see him working in
Ferguson again, as we have been
given to understand on good author-
S nee assuming the editorship oil ffe
'he Lugle we have b.en surprised
to find out lo \, hat an extent knock-,
nig prevails in lhe camp. We,
our verdant innocence imagined
Ibut every resident ol Ihe distriit
bad only lhe best interests of lhe
country nt bean. Instead of lhat
we find there are old grey haired
sinners in camp who have been
deliberately knocking legitimate
nining companies. The letters
are sent back io us lor our opinion,
so we know, Next week ive intend
to deal wilh these knockers at
some length and hope to be able to
lead lh��m to see the wrong of their
ways.
the delegates seemed lo be to get a
platform on which the more radical I ty that  Mr. Pettipiece has already
and Ihe conservative element of the
working classes could meet oil common ground.    We are of the opinion lhat I bey succeeded  admirably.
There are  plenty of reform   mens-
ures  in it   io  keep   lhe legislature
busy lor lhe next ten \ears in bring-
ing litem into force.   The  interests
of lhe enpit list cla��s are not undid*,
jeopardized by the phnks adopted,
It is really no more radical than tbe
platforms   on   which   Taylor   and
McCrea appealed lo lhe electors Insi
election, but the difference consisis
in the recall measure which we hope
will have lhe effect ot making ihosi
who are elected on this platlorm ui
f_ij;t make an honest effort lo earn*
our w'i'ies inio effect.    There w s
one feaii re of the convention uliiih
was very noticeable and  thai With, united efforts of the delegai >
representing the Miners' Unions to
have the  n ining laws  strictly unfair 1'ered with.   They felt that ther,
had already be en  loo much tinkei-
ing u ith the mining laws hy politicians anxious to catch ihe miner-'
vote and all that the delegates asked
was that ths min'ng laws be st.rictly
let alone an I t mt ihe inJustfy be
allowed to-row and piosp.r.    It is
our opinio,   that tie mine owners
have less lo fear from legislators-
chosen by lhe miners and who wo Id
likely he practical miners themselves
than item the professional politicians
who oueii  meddle with our   laws
with :i vi:     '.. paitdcriri��; to the
more radical workers and not really
understanding the tar-reaching influence of their laws often credit,
unnecessary friction  between  employers and employees.
Another notable feature of  the
convention wnr the desire for ind.*.
pendent   action.      The   Province, ���
Progressive party is a uew party niii*
is not affiliMUid wilh either the  Lil
erals  or   Ibe  Conservatives.     Th.
execuiive officers are men of tcnowi
integrity and arc working men, hu
,nen ���' hone ability will compare ver;
favorably   v.'ii.i   the  ability of .th.',.
iaine  number of men chosen Iron
bought an interest in a paper un the
coast. Now ive hope this candid
siatement of our position will satisfy lhe most incredulous. Il il don'l
ne can help it and don't intend mak-
iig any further explanations, hut
July ask lhat we be judged by resells.

The railway is being pushed to completion and
soon the C. P. R. will accept through freight
for Trout Lake. Trains are now being operated on the new road as far as the steel is laid.
Many mining properties surrounding Ferguson
are rapidly reaching the shipping stage, while
the shippers speak for themselves. Not only is
Ferguson the commercial, banking, smelting
and pay roll center, but here is where the most
prominent Lardeau mining men have their
interests and headquarters. The best lot locations are being picked up by shrewd investors.

He lias two men continuing work there
and already there Is a tunnel of 185
feet on the claim.
The shipments from Slocan Oity

tons, the Arlington shipping 40 tons of
ore and the Kntei prise JO tons of con
centrales. Tho total shipments from
Slocan Cliy camp for the year aggregate 1,450 tons. Tbe shipments for
the year from the whole of tbe Slocan

A small force of men has been put in
work on the Summit companyV

A site bas been procured for tbe
proposed smelter at Suodon which J.
Ryan is promoting. It is just outside
the city limits and well adapted fur
the purpose. The Sandon people are
jiving tho enterprise every encouragement. Tlie design will be what is
known as the Valcan type, the same as
that which has been erected at Ferguson, and tlie Sandon people are witb
interest watching bow that one will
turn out. If Mr. Ryan's proposed
smelter does not eventuate there Is a
disposition now to erect one anyway, -if
the Vulcan system proves a success at
