Ferguson, B. C, JULY 15, 1904.
$2 a Year
David Morgan Has The
Smile on His Side.
i ���:���
Average Lead of 8 Feet Stripped
for 700 Yards.
Everybody has been wondering
why the town sees so little of the
popular secretary of the local branch
of the Miners' Union these clays.
We doubt if anyone correctly surmised the cause of his too tew visits
to camp ; and il they rightly conjectured of his whereabouts, no know-
lege leaded out as to his actions.
!).iye js ever ready to praise the
Lardeau; always anxious to take up
lhe cudgels on its behalt ; and ,n<* ��
great traveller and expert miner, his
unbiassed opinion on local properties has eagerly been sought. But
when personal interests are involved,
flattery gives place to reticence, and
his lips are sealed. In this respect
the characteristic trait of his nationality asserts itself ; he retires when
he has a grand opportunity to crow,
���and so the Eagle has failed in all
its attempts to draw the downy
David to talk of his own properties.
It has been noliccd by the Eagle
that Dave appeared anxious to unburden himself of something of late,
and we were of the opinion that
mystery was in the air. But while he
himself has failed to give us one jot
of his good fortune for publication,
the searching eye of the writer has
detected n " something," and being
alert to the needs of his readers, has
liberated the hounds to scent out
and follow up any clue.
On the North Fork wagon road
between (our and live miles from
town Surprise creek may be easily
reached by pedestrian or horseman,
and Dave Morgan has staked out
and is now developing three claims
on that creek. There the luck)
Welshman has been putting in every
minute Irom early morn to dewy
eve, and the resulls of bis labor
reveal a lead of clean ore of from
8 to 14 It. wide. Tho splendid
lead is right upon the surface, and
ordinary pick and shovel work has
been sufficient to trace the wide vein
for some considerable distance,
2,000 feet of which has been
stripped, and ut present tbere is no
knowledge of the length of the fissure. Near the hanging wall,
whicli is cut off by the creek, Dave
has sunk a 20 ft. shaft. There is a
splendid trail right to the claims,
and an abundance of water
is to be had. Splendid timber is to
found on the spot, and one of the
finest properties it has ever been our
pleasuie to write on will become
a household word in financial circles.
Wc extend to Dave Morgan the
congratulations of the Eagle, and
thc whole country side will join with
us in the wish that his exchequer
will henceforth be in a flourishing
ill School Exams.
Ferguson Stands Out Prominently
With Other Schools
Of its Class.
The results of the recent High
School Entrance Examination show
that Ferguson school easily ranks
first of its class in the Province.
Two pupils went up for examination, and both passed with very
creditable marks, as the following
results show:
Robert A. Kirkpatrick, age 13:
Reading 04, dictation and spelling87,
writing 57, English literature 58, arithmetic and book-keeping 05, geography
(11, Knglish grammar and composition

Champion M. Nesbitt, age 15 : Reading 60. dictation and spelling 85, writing 70, English literature 118, arithmetic and book-keeping 57, geography

The totals as given by the Department omit drawing in the case
of Robert Kirkpatrick. It seems
that his drawing book was lost,
either by the inspector or by the department, as it was handed in to
the inspector alright during the ex
This was the first occasion that
Ferguson pupils have taken an en
trance examination, and both boys
deserve credit for the manner in
which they upheld the honor of their
town and school.
Everybody in towiuvill be sorry
to learn of Mr. S. Shannon's resig
nation. A popular and painstaking
teacher���he has brought our school
out of the rut, and placed it in a
proud position. Mr. Shannon finds
that with the growth of the camp,
and th* great demand for his services as an assayist, he cannot do
justice to himself and his pupils.
The Eagle wishes him all the luck
he wishes himself.
Getting Better Right
The Eagle paid a surprise visit
to the Rambler claim, near S-mile,
early this week. The bird hovered
there lor some time���fascinated by
rich surface showings of clean ore.'
Jim Livingstor.e has greatly augmented his dump since our last
visit, and the ledge in the hanging
wall is widening out, The stringers
to which he has been devoting his
attention are yielding better resulls
than anticipated a week ago. On
looking around, the Eagle was
greatly struck with the favored
position for a mine. An abundance
of good timber, a 18 ft. waterfall at
the mouth of the tunnel which he is
cutting, and a good wagon road
within 15 yards of the dump.

The football match on Saturday
night between Ferguson and 5-Mile
will long be remembered by everybody who witnessed it. The match
was played at Ferguson, and the
destinies of nations were small fry
in comparison with the issue at
stake. A defeat for thc Ferguson
team meant disgrace and loss of
prestige, while to Ihe Bullionists
the glory of a. victory would mean
the highest honor in the football
arena���at least locally. A great
crowd of admirers, and others,
assembled to encourage, criticise,
cheer, howl and rattle, as occasion
demanded. Captain Bob Margraves
had his men on the field in good
time, and they looked in the pink
of condition. The betting ruled at
1 to ��� nfrainst- ike Scramblers, and
it looked at ioo's. Frank Barber
marshalled his team of hotel wreckers, and amidst breathless excitc-
the coin was pitched tor choice of
ends. The Bullionists won the toss
and elected to kick towards the
cemetery. Betting : 10 to 1 on the
Silverscrapers. Referee Wilkie
called the men together, and alter
administering a caution, and allowing the men chewing time, tucked
his trousers in his socks and tootled
the squeaker.
Hargraves kicked off and passed
the ball to Peel ; Peel snicked the
leather to another Peel ; this Peel
boshed the sphere over to the right
wing where another Peel jockeyed
the bouncer to Peel No. 4, who w��s
laying offside, and an appeal relieved the pressure. From the free
kick, Cummings passed the globe
to Barber, Barber passed to Hadow,
who passed to Alec Cummins, who
passed to Bill Leiper, who gave to
Johnny Macdonald, who pushed Boh
Hargreaves in the mud in pushing
the ball to George Howard, who
canted it to Cassy Edwards, who
punted it to Paddy McQuorn, who
headed it to Peler McPhail antl
Pete took a mighty shot from at
least one yard from goal and���
missed I But tbe ball struck the
post, and as the boys rushed to embrace Pete, the ball got accidentally
pushed through. First blood for
Ferguson. Betting : 2 to i bar
1, Bob Hargraves looked as stolid
as the sphinx as he footed the ball
for resumption of hostilities. A
neat bit of passing hy the Peel boys,
who were playing a sterling game,
resulted in the leather being safely
lodged on Dad Black's verandah.
After a delay ol a few minutes the
ball was in play again, and seized
upon by Ferguson, who did the passing, canting and punting act once
more, and the trick safely accomplished. Half-time. Up to this
period of the match, everybody had
played first-class football, and the
spectators were thrilled. No betting. On changing ends the Ferguson team had everything to favor
them, but it is to their everlasting
shame and mortification that they
allowed the Bullionists to completely
outflank, out-manceuvre, and outgeneral them. The 5-Mile footers
rose to the occasion and handed out
the medicine right and left���and
from a scrimmage in iront of goal, a
daisy cutter was sent in, whicli
easily beat the goalie's daisy roots.
One yell from the multitude, and
���one bet struck. OIT again���and
the ball was taken to the Ingotecr
citadel, where the Mustgetthere's
hammered at the goalkeeper for
ten minutes, and completely hemmed the opposition in. Irish Mac
screwed a corner across the portal,
Cassy Edwards knocked for an entrance, and Pete McPhail escorted
the ball across the threshold. The
referee then sounded the siren, and
the battle was won���and lost.

The Free Gold claim on the Wimslow group has had many visitors
this week. Mr. Frank Barber, of
the King's Hotel, Ferguson, made
the trip on Tuesday last. He
said, in the course of an interview
to our representative, that he had
seen more gold in lhat visit than
ever before in his life. Davie,
Grant and Murphy were proud and
willing to show visitors over thoir
claims, aud while Iherc they panned
12 shovels full at the request ol the
visitors, and a trifle hiore than one
I dollar resulted. The lead Ins now
been stripped lor 50 feet, and tbe
ledge as it rises Ih increasing in
value and width. Mr. Barber said
that the ledge at its widest point
was not less 8 It., and a loot at the
lowest. He considered the claim of
a 5 ft. average a fair estmate, Gold
was easily discerned by the bare
eye. Mr. Barber says the road;
are now in good condition, and that
the summit is clear ot snow.
No. 1 Tram Silver Cup
Is at Work Again.
After a spell of several months'
idleness necessitated by the disastrous snowslide which occurred at
the Silver Cup last April, Xo. i
tram is again carrying ore from the
mine to the mill at 5-Mile, where
two shitts are operating. The tram
is working splendidly again.
A Specimen trom Poplar
There is on view in Mackinnon
& Sutherland's store, a fine piece oi
quartz, the property of W. Schnell,
who took it from a claim on Poplar
creek last fall. The specimen
weighs about 12 ounces, and is permeated with Iree gold, which is estimated to be worth $,. .. A veritable nugget. It has lately been
returned to Mr. Schnell, after having travelled the length and breadth
ot the continent.
���Mrs. N. Abrahamson and Miss
Short, of Trout Lake, were visitors
to Mrs. A. C. Cummins, yesterday.

A New   Hydraulic   Air
Jno. II. Alexander, of Ferguson,
has invented and patented a very
useful and economic air compressor.
We have no doubt of it commanding a great sale. The combination
is an air-compressing apparatus ol
a pipe for conducting a falling column of water under due pressure,
and having an outlet to atmosphere,
a separating lank into which said
pipe discharges, a storage tank and
a supplemental air-compressing
mechanism, comprising a hydraulic
cylinder having a piston arranged
for operation bv the water discharged under pressure from the
separating-tank, an air cylinder
and piston, the air-piston being connected with said piston cf the hydraulic cylinder lor operation thereby, and a pipe connecting thc supplemental air-compressing mechanism and tiie said vertical pipe
leading lo the separating-tank,
whereby the air compressed by said
supplemental mechanism is conveyed into said pipe, and thus into
the separating tattle.

There are many object lessons for
Ihe prospectors who are pounding
away on our hills to take to heart.
The prospector has to stay with
it when lie stakes a good claim, and
too often his financial resources
nre dead before his hopes are
realized. Rome was not built in a
day. The Slocan country passed
through much the same experience
as is now before the Lardeau
There was quite a stampede lo that
country belore lhe railway got in,
but no " boom" was experienced.
The railway came along, and a
few shipments of ore were made.
But as lime advanced, the camp developed, and prospects were turned
. into shippers, a pay-roll was established, and at the present lime it is
ii; a nourishing condition.
The Lardeau has the shippers
now, nnd that is where we possess
an advantage over the Slocan in its
earlier days. The Lardeau district
is all that is claimed lor it, and the
average prospector will aver that
lhe tidiest mineral belt in Canada
'.*>:i*>ts here. But time and money
is necessary for development. The
man on the street who has carried
his pack across mountains and
deserts in foreign lands in search ol
hidden wealth sitstightin Ferguson.
Tiie reason is not f.tr to seek. The
mechanic will not search for employment on a barren island ; the
storekeeper will not display his
goods to the birds of the air ; neither
will a prospector stay in a camp
with no ore lo dig. There is not a
day passing without another rich
strike being recorded in Ferguson,
and Ihe pioneers sit tight.
When tbe investor and the financier have tired of " wild-cats" their
sleps will he directed here. We
shall see the prospectors sitting
lightuntil such a time occurs���asall
have a great faith in the camp.
British Columbia, generally, has
suffered terribly from the rash
booms of unscrupulous company
promoters who sought something
lor nothing from the'pigeons they
plucked ; the Lardeau inthe natural
order ol things, notwithstanding its
vast wealth, has been greatly
affected by lho reaction, but B.C.
has lived it down, and now proudly
anil justly proclaims herself "the
keeper of the keys." The Lardeau,
at the present lime, has Ihe eyes ol
the universe centred upon it. What
edict shall go forth to all the world
and his wife. We hope the truth
will cut deep. Our banner is nailed
to the wall, and on it is inscribed
" Second to None." We would
say to the promoter of companies
who is looking for phantoms to
finance: "Stand off."   But to the
level-headed man ol business we ex
tend a cordial and honest invitation
to visit Ferguson, the pay-roll centre of the rich Laadeau���and investigate.
This week the Geological Survey
Department publishes its Report for
lijoj. R. W. Brock in his report
on the Lardeau district has a great
fund of interesting and instructive
matter lo impart. Truth is stranger
than fiction, and the following comprehensive paragraph appears on
page 64:
CREEK. The mineral zone Irom
Camborne crosses to the Lardeau
slope from the Beatrice, and continues over Great Northern Mountain, over the spur of Ferguson
Mountain, between the forks ol
Lardeau creek, and up the north
slope of Silver Cup Mountain to
its summit. ON THIS BELT
these will be described as illustrative of this section. The most
important mining operations yet
carried on in the Lardeau district
are those in connection with the
Nettie L. and Silver Cup Mines,
conducted by two English companies."
If we take the map accompanying
the report, whereon the rich mineral
belt is marked off, we shall note
lhat it extends from Menhinick
creek, across Pool Creel', through
Camborne to Mohawk creek, across
the North and South Forks of the
the Lardeau, and continues to Poplar and Cascade creeks. We shall
see that Ferguson is almost in thc
centre of the !*.one, and that the
scale of eight miles to the inch gives
us a belt 43 miles in length by 4 in
width, bearing amazingly rich
quartz and large quantities of lree
gold. We are proud of our in-
heritage, anxious for the world to
know ol our good fortune, and wil*
ling to advise the investor or capitalist.
