PROGRESS IN OLD GOLD CAMP
A Eeview of the Work Done���The
Neoesaity of Better Transportation Facilities.
The Old Gold camp is a portion of
this district which has beon attracting
no little attention both locally and on
the outside during the past four or five
years. The various companies operating on properties over there have had
many ups and downs, but.their persistent efforts seem likely to be rewarded
in the course of another year at most.
The Old Gold property in particular
has had a great deal of development
work done upon It, with remarkable
results. The test shipment now being
made by tlie company is not so much
with tbe expectancy of securing net
returns as to fully determine to its
shareholders what results might be
expected had thoy cheaper transportation facilities and the government a
market for silver and lead provided.
Though unnecessary to give tbe
location of, and record of the work
done oo, the Old Gold camp for local
purposes, tho Eagle will review the
season's progress for the benefit of its
interested outside readers. Tlie properties 'generally spoken of as comprising the Old Gold camp are tbe
following groups: Old Gold, Primrose.
Guinea Gold and Lardo-Duncan. These
properties aro situated on what is now
known as Westfall creek, a tributary
to the Little West Fork of Duncan
rivor, just over tbe lirst summit range
eaBt of Ferguson. The camp is easily
reached from here," its present supply
point, by a good trail up the north fork
to Circle City, and from there up to tho
summit and over, a distancoof probably
12 milos���when you walk. Onco tbe
cabins aro reached thero is always
ample provision mado by the officials
for both man and beast. One is
tempted to believe that thc scenic
grandeur presented in this beautiful
valley would sustain llfo in itself, but
tho appetite acquired in crossing tho
summit somowhat changes this belief.
Tlio Oltt Until Oroup.
This group is comprised of tho Silver
King, Silver King Fraction, Silver
Queen and the V. M. W., lying on tho
western slope of ihe valley. We first
visited the reeont discovery on the V.
M. W. and saw the markings of azurite
along tho face of the wall which
attracted tbo attention of tbo management to it. Operations were commenced this spring nnd in a short time 8
inches of galena oro was exposed. The
vein hero is uncovered for a considerable length, which is now being
broken down and sacked. About 200
feet below or lower down hill Is tbo
long tunnol crosscut 20�� ft. In lengthen
which a fine body of Dre was exposed
last year. Drifts aro run on the vein
northwest and south' i^t some distance,
leaving tho oro bod;, .place as In the
upper workings. The vein, where
Intersected, Is 7 ft,, wide, having from 1
to 2 ft. of solid medium-sratio oro with
5 ft. of concentrating ledgo matter,
Tho walls are perfect, tho foot especially so, being a sllckensldo and
beautifully marked. Again about 200
ft. below tho tunnel spoken of abovo,
No. II tunnel Is being extended and is
In about 100 ft, Whon this tunnel
intersects tbe vein and is connected
with tho upper levels tho Old Gold
should be a permanent shipper, other
conditions being equal. Certainly
every indication at the surface and
below ground denotes great possibilities for the future of the property.
But of course the lack of proper transportation facilities and tbe uncertainty
of the lead market are none too
encouraging features at present. This,
the Eagle hopes, our provincial
government will soon ovorcomo hy
establishing a refinery in the Kootenays.
Lying to the northwest and adjoining
the Old Gold is tho Mountain Lion
Mining Go's, property.
Tho Guinea Gold Group. if
The Guinea Gold Mining Co's Is a
continuation on tbo Old Gold led'ge to
thc southeast, comprised of fourclalms,
tho Silver Loaf No. 1, Silver Leaf No.
2, Silver Leaf No. 3 and the Dora. On
the Silvor Loaf No. II a crosscut tunnel
Is run 180 ft, and it appears  to be
netiring the vein, as exposures of
mineral and many quartz stringers are
seen in tho face of tho tunnel. At tho
surface tho vein is uncovered forl80 ft.
in length, and is 5 ft. wido, showing
solid ore 10 inches wide. A good trail
from tho Old Gold cabin leuds up. to
tbe workings.
The Primrose Group,
Sidelining the Guinea Gold on the
west is the Primrose Co's property,
four claims, on whieh a crosscut tunnel
is run 300 ft. to catch the chute of ore
seen on tho surfaco above,but up to tho
present there is no ov& body available.
However, tho work will be continued
later on ; but at present the company
have something which is of more
immediate interest to them on the
opposite side of tbe hogsback upon
which it is located. Here J. W. West-
fall made an important discovery late
last season and the foreman, Jacob
Schmidt, is much pleased with the
results 60 far obtained this season.
Next season, the Eagle believes, will
seo the Primrose producing ore.
Lnrilo-Duiicun Group.
This group is a continuation on the
Primrose ledge, northwest, sidelining
the Old Gold and comprising three
claims. On the property a drift is run
on the vein about 100 ft., showing good
ore values for the whole of the distance
and improving with depth obtained.
What seems to be necessary to make
ail these groups of claims valuable, is
rapid development, which, witli the
better transportation facilities near at
hand, will make mining hero more
remunerative.
TBE BIG BEND'S REDEEMER
The s. s. Revelstoke Now Building at
Nakusp, to Ply on the Columbia
River Above Revelstoke.
The s. s. Revelstoke would have been
completed oro this time and launched
on tho river if all tbe material had
beon forward. The lumber comes from
Now Westminster and tho machinery
from Toronto. None of the machinery
has arrived and the delivery of tho
lumber is so slow that a full gang is not
working on the boat. It is being built
in the C. P. It. yard and by the 6ame
carpenters that build and repair the C.
P. R. boats. The C. P. R. have placed
all their appliances at the service ol
the owners of the s. s. Revelstoke.
Thomas T. Bulger, C. P. R, shipwright, has charge of tho construction
Presently he has a gang 'of 13 men
working on tlie boat, which could be
easily increased to 25 if all tho material
was forward. Operations aro retarded
for the w'ant of lumber. Within
three woeks she would bo out of her
stays If there was no delay In furnishing the matorlul. As it is, construction
is well advanced,. Tho boat is now in
frame. The keelsons nro laid and one'
fourth of tho hull finished. Ths boat
is being built expressly for freighting
purposes, and thero will be nn uccomo

accomodation will be for tho ofHcors

nine all told, Including captain, mate,
pilot, engineer and dock hands. She
will bo capable of carrying 125 tons of
freight and will draw ?0 Inches of
water. Her length Is 125 feet with an
average breadth of about 25 feet. The
dlamoter of hor driving wheol whioh Is
fitted with 15 paddles, is IU feet. Tho
engines are being made in Toronto and
are claimed to possess two high pressure cylinders, and to glvo a stroke of
five feet. The boiler, It Is stated, will
carry up to 200 lbs. pressure of steam
to the square inch. The frame of the
vessel Is composed ol natural crooks
and therefore not liable to breakage.
One special feature of the vessel is thc
powerful steam capstan she will possess, which is essential for the turbulent waters that slip will navigate, and

FISH CREEK CAMP'S FUTURE
Large Galena Ore Bodies as Well as
Huge Gold Values.��� The Patent
Need of Trunk Trails.
Chanbhook, B. C, Sept. 2.���I beg
to thank you for tho assistance you
have given us through your paper
towards getting tho trail finished up
Fish river above Camborno. The trail
is for tbe beneiit of all tlio claims on
the east side of Fish river, also up
Boyd creek, and will do away with the
fianger of crossing that stream. I and
my co-owners have a showing tbat is
alone worth putting the trail through
to. Goo. Goldsmith* Thus. Baylor,
and I own four claims, about two miles
below Boyd creelc. They continence at
the level of Fish ereek aud run over
tho hill. Wo have a 40 ft. ledgo holding its width and traceable for 1000 ft.
with solid galena to no end. An assay
of this ore by tho Trail smelter went as
follows: 24 ozs. silver, 03 por cent
lead, 4 per cent iron, 15 per cent silica
and a trace in gold and zinc. I consider W9 have a property that will give
a smelter, when established, something
to do, and whon the lead market picks
up again wo have a most desirable
proposition. Wc aro also interested i n
the Scout group, on the same mountain,
which is looking very well. Our
galena will average 00 ozs. silver and
00 per cent lead, with from $2 to $0 in
gold; with a load 10 ft. wide, well
mineralized. Thero is also a second
strong lead running through tiie property catrying copper and gold values,
from which wo had 6 per cent, copper
and $3 gold from an assay taken at
surfaco. Wo aro now in about 25 ft. on
tho galena lead and still In carbonates.
Tho gold values in tbe Fish creek
eamp are attracting world-wide attention, but I'll take oven chances on tbe
silver-lead properties in the long run.
We have dono about $400 worth of trail
work on our own hook and would havo
dono more had tho government built
the main trail. Again thanking you
for the attention and help you have
given the Fish creek camp, and tho

MOTHER REGULAR SHIPPER
The Beatrioe Freed From Litigation and Work Is To Be
Resumed.
As announced in tho Eagle last
week Frank Fullmer has secured a
bond on his co-owner's interests, two-
thirds, In thu Beatrioe mine on tho
summit at tho head of Goal oreek. {Mr.
Fullmer Is now having cabins built and
supplies taken in and expect.', to mako
-ogular Shipments of oro during tho
winter. At present the property will
be worked from tlio 'Fish ereek slope,
but ns soon as advisable Mr, Fullmer
Intends to drive a long tunnel from
this side, aftor which the ore will be
rawhlded down Goat creek to Ferguson
and thon haulod to Trout Lake for
water und rail shipment. Tho Beatrice
has been the subject of much litigation
foracouplo of years, but everything
has beou satisfactorily arranged now,
and work will continue twelvo months
it year hereafter. This news will he
received with a deal ol satisfaction in
the camp, as tho Beatrice working
force will help to swell tho permanent
pay roll and the regular shipments of
$100 ore, noft will do much to further
attract the retention of tho railway
authorities and the investing public
generally.
IT'S ALL COMING TO THEM.
Speaking of the recent good fortune
of tho Lade brothers, aftor producing
the Eagle's report of tbeir rooent discovery on Triuno ereok, the Silvertonlan says: "When fickle fortune smiles
on ono she grows lavish in her favors
and showers her gifts In a bewildering
sequence. The Lade boys spont several
years in hard work waiting to mako a
strike; prospecting in summer, working
for a grub Btako during tho winter
months, the; pushed their fortunes,
A PRAISEWORTHY MISSION.
Mrs. W. M. Lawrence and Miss
Rhoda Woodward, who have been In
the camp for tho past fow days, soliciting subscriptions towards the Revelstoke general hospital to be built there
at onee and placed under the auspices
of Lfidy Minto's Victorian Order of
Nurses, returned to Revelstoke on
Tuesday morning. They secured $100
at Trout Lako and about $250 in Ferguson, for which they have asked the
Eagle to heartily thank the contributors and tiiey promise that when tho
Lardeau Miners' Union builds a
hospital In Ferguson next spring
Revelstolcers will reciprocate if given
an opportunity.

A PROGRESSIVE RANKER.
D. R. Wllkte, general manager ot
the Imperial Bank of Canada, has been
paying the western cities and branches
a visit. Although quite a young man
Mr. Wilkio is regarded as one of the
leading financiers of Canada and it is
largely through his .ITorts that the
Imperial bank lias attained such a
large measure of prosperity and success. Ho is the one bank manager
who favors tho establishment of a mint
in Canada.
A 20-Ton Shipment Will Be Made
at Once���Work Will Be Continued All Winter.
Tlie well known Black Wari'lot'group,
owned by Tom Horn, and located in
McDonald creek basin, up the north
fork, has beon taken bold of by Chas.
W, McCrossan of Minneapolis on a
$50,000 bond. A force of ton or twelve
men under Tom Horn will ho put on on
Monday next. Cabins will be built, and
supplies takun in for the winter. A
shipment of 20 tons will bo made yet
this season. Tbe Black Warrior is
considered locally to he ono of tho biggest silver-lead propositions in tlio
country. A review of property will appear in next issue of tho EAGLE.
A sitting of the full assizes takes
place in Revelstoko on October 12th.
S. Snaunon returned from the Black
Warrior group on Tuesday evening.
Good'progress is being made with
tho contract on the Triune Fraction.
There is really no tolling what may

Another torrlble wreck on tho 0. P.
R. occurred near Rush lnko on tho
prairie last Friday, us ar. indirect
result of the recent strike. The Imperial Limited dashed over a spread
rail and latest reports say that twelve
poople are seriously Injured, some of
whom may dio at the Medicine Hut
hospital where they are uow confined.
R. Davis, who has had chargoof tho
local saw mill for thc past serson,
loaves for Revelstoko on Saturday to
accept a position with the Big Eddy
saw mill just built there, and in which
ho is interested. James Anderson,
who has been with Mr. Davis hero all
summer, will have charge of tho mill
hereafter, and from the number .of
orders on hand will have a good cut
yot this fall.
If all tho gold and silver coin in tho

whieh contain lots of grey copper. This
is at a deptii of about 150 feet, the tunnel being in about 107 feet. They intend to drive 10 feet more on tbe ore,
when they will raise to the upper workings and block out ore. The oro below
Is good for $200 net to the ton, and
though the carbonates are scarce, there
is the same kind of iron ns is found in
the Silver Cup which runs somo $30 to
$40 in gold. Assays are being obtained
from S. Shannon, B. A. Encouraged
by such success the Ferguson brothers
have all but decided to start a long
base tunnel some 300 feet bilow No. 3,
which would enable them to work tho
property all winter and acquire a great,
depth. Tho EAGLE believes that it can
snfely say tho Triune is tho biggest
high-grade silver-lead-gold proposition
ever unearthed ui Canada or perhaps
the world. It is worth anyone's time
to visit it, and the Eagle will be thoro
to-day.
SEEING IS RELIEVING.
Art. Johnson of the Revelstoko
Herald, who paid tbo Triune a visit last
week, concludes a write-up of what ho
saw in theso words:
'There is sufficient ore in sight today in the Triune to mako tlie owners
rich men and tlio Herald man cau well

taking thc oro out for shipment. Fifteen tons are now at the Landing and
the balance of a carload will be ou;
and shipped to Trail tbis week. Seeing

property ono can easily understand the

that the Triune contains the richest

to-day."

Stamford promises the Eagle that
within a week dirt will be Hying. Mr.
Stamford, and Frank Seaman,, the proposed contractor, havo sized up the
ground, taken their levels ant! ordered
the piping by wire. Tlie water supply
will bo taken from Alpha crook, just
west of tho townsite, and a dam will bo
built sufficiently high up to give thc
necessary pressure. Six-inch mains,
and four-inch branch pipe will bo used.
Property owners will only havo to connect with a pipe on the street as the
company will extend branch pipes to

the prospector must soon make a
sluff for a winter's grubstake. A
few weeks more will see snow in
ihe valleys and many properties
settling down to work for the winter's ore output, which will exceed
all previous records this winter so
far as this district is concerned.
The camp has not been overburdened with the presence of investors,
but a number of properties have
been bonded on working terms, and
considering the silver-lead market
and the absence of a progressive and
responsible government, and the
non-completion of our railway,
there has been much progress made.
The wheels of time slowly roll
around and at each turn the Lardeau grows in development. ' To
those who could eke out a living
here a few years ago the present
state is easy street. Very few men
will have to leave the camp this fall
to seek work elsewhere for the winter. All things considered, particularly from this town's point of view,
there is no complaint to offer. True
many of us have been disappointed
in not seeing more people come in,
but we are not alone by any means
on this score. This is a big
country and time alone will bring
about its proper development. Al
any rate the average man hates a
kicker, so that we will accept the
many many good points discernahle
and leave the drawbacks for the
future to solve.
Joseph Martin we we must doff
out hat to you. You may have all
the faults and amb tions attributed
to you ; but there is no pipe dream
encourages some other investor and
claim-holders will get their turn in
time. Jealousy has been the ruin
of many a camp, but it ought not lo
be allowed to do an injury here. II
a man cannot say a good word for
another's claim, he should have
gumption enough to keep his face
clo-ed. The knocker knocks
another's deal and gets knocked
himsell in turn.
If two parties have a dispute
about property, the courts arbitrate
the matter and the parties to the
affiiir must abide by the decision,
whether they like it or not. But
when a great corporation on the
one hand ar.tl workers on the other
bave a dispute the fogies say that
thc courts have no jurisdiction to
adjust the matter, but should stand
to one side and see fair play only
and let them fight it out if it turns
the country into insurrection and
possibly civil war! Compulsory
arbitration is all right where property is concerned���but where men
are concerned���that's different!
Men are not worthy Ihe attention of
a court ! They are only playthings
for rich private owners.

strides of progress in the lace of a
demoralized silver-lead market, no
railway (though now under con
struction), and 'he general depression said' to exist in other camps in
the province. The Lardeau appears
to be the best camp in the province

hereafter in the United States,
where industrial wars are continually raging, with no government

It's a wonder mon like Bernard McDonald and his hireling C. A. Gregg,
who so dislike tho lawsof this country,

Sweden has a new political party

country. This isi tho first political
party in that country since tho days of
tbo "Hats and Caps" which was destroyed in 1772.
A move is on foot, says a dispatch, to

Consolidation is in the air, but what

who will bo out of a job if tho deal
goes through ?
Those simple old souls who tell you
that tho Bible supports thn private
property idea, should bear in mind
that before the black man was freed, it
was preached from tho pulpit thai
slavery was a divine Institution and

got a glimpse of that bettor way and of
grander ideals.

Why do socialists believe in the pub
lie ownership and management of railways? Becauso thoy know that with
the railways in thc hands of the nation
(1) tbey might be made a groat blessing to all by low fares and rapid and
punctual trains; (2) our trade and commerce might bo immensely developed
by low freights and a properly organized goods service; (3) tho wages of the
f>00,000 railway servants might bo
raised and thoir hours shortened, and
many of tho deaths and terrible accidents among them prevented; (4) the
profits could go to reduce taxation (say)
on tea, coffee, cocoa, sugar, etc , or
might bo spent in providing butter edu>
cation or other public benefits.
Tho capitalists of New Zealand and
tlieir friends everywhere aro opposed
to tbe labor and other oconomic
legislation of that country, becauso it
will teach tho laboring people some
things that they otherwise would not

It as a failure. Tho fact that it does
thlB is ampin proof nf Its success, so far
as tho common poople are concerned.
The plutocratic prjjgg is repoating these

All the same, Now Zoaland Is going to

A recent visitor to tho camp tells tbe
following Btory : I. B. Fleishman, the
woll known travelling jeweler, of
Jewish donominatinn, happened to bo
at the Glacier House, on the C. P. R,
main lino, when Lord Aberdeen was
visiting that populur summer resort
for a fow days. It was Sunday morning
and His Highness, as usual, was preparing to (hold religious service in a
spacious portion of tho hotel annex.
With a huge bible nnder his arm he
was strolling up and down the sidewalk
along the boulevard, and purchauco
met Mr. Fleishman. "Good morning
Sir," politely addressed His Honor,
"we are going to hold service this
morning and would be pleased to have
you join us." Mr. Fleishman hesitated; "Ngh !"said ho shaking his head,
"too many of my enemies over thore."
"But," ropliodHIs Highness, "Christ
our Saviour preached and went among
His enemies, did he not?" "And doy
didn't do a ting to Him eidor, did

FERGUSON
Is the Coming Solid Town of the
Lardeau and Trout Lake District
Because of its unique geographical position; nature having provided as pretty a flat bench, at
the junction of the north and
south forks of Lardeau creek, as
ever a town was built up on in
British Columbia.
Because the Nettie L. Double
Eagle, Ophir-Lade, Silver Cup,
Triune, Metropolitan, Sunset,
Lone Star, Comstock and other
properties will operate the year-
round hereafter, and this winter
will see probably 400 men at
work, over 200 of which will be
engaged on the properties of
the first three named.
B B C A USB
Because the shipping mines are
located on Nettie L. hill, between the two creek forks; on
the Great Northern hill just
north of the town itself; and on
the south fork and its tributaries,
for all of which Ferguson is the
supply point.
Because mine owners hire their
crews in Ferguson and pay them
off in Ferguson.
Because the offices o( many-, of
the companies operating in the
camp are located here.
Because Ferguson receives thc
pay roll benefit from these working mines.
Because this is the point where
mining men coming into the district make their headquarters; as
they can walk or ride and return
from most of the properties in
one day or less.
Because every pound of ore from
these mines coming down the
hill lands first in Ferguson.
From here it will be teamed to
transportation on the lake, a
distance of four miles.
Because when the railway reaches
the place where the mines are it
will reach Ferguson.
Because there is every natural advantage for the building up of a
great mining center.
But why give other reasons: We have the mines, the pay roll, the natural geo*
graphical location, unlimited water power, etc., and the right kind of people to make
A town. The ore shipments, increasing business, and money and enterprise will do the
rest.   Come and see for yourself.
