Beatrioe Mine up the North Fork
Seen ln a New Light.
GOLD VISIBLE TO NAKED EYE
Value* Nearly ��400 to the Ton
and Proven for Over One
Hundred Feet,
Tbe Eagle mentioned last week that
it was rumored that a rich strike had
been made on the Beatrice. This week
we are in a position to assure our
readers that the rumor is perfectly correct and tho strike Is far and away the
most Important of the season up to
date. The Beatrice was staked and
has since been operated under the Impression that It was a straight sllver-
lead proposition and last tall Mr. Full*
mer started a long tunnol with the
view of getting under tho big surface
showing of silver lead ore. Thegalena
ore of the Beatrice occurs in a fissure
voin, and while the tunnel Btarted by
Mr. Fullmer bad for its object th'
crosscuttlngof this vein it necessitated
a tunnel running with the formation.
For the first 150 feet the tunnel run at
a slight angle across the formation and
struck a body of quartz fullv five feet
in width on which they have drifted
for over 100 feet. They did not suspect
the valuo of this body of quart/, and in
fact have thrown part of it over tbe
dump, but when the gold became visible to the naked eye they at once sent
some of tho samples down to Ferguson
for assay, the result being close in the
neighborhood of $.00 to tbe ton in gold
values. The rock resembles that found
in Fish Creek and as the Beatrice is admittedly in the same belt as the Nettie
L.. this8trlke should make the prospectors of this camp very careful about
throwing quartz ovor the dump without first testing it for gold values.
tbe market and thereby make us worse
off than we are now. I also think that
if we wish to nurse the industry we
must cultivate a market and that can
only be done by keeping down the coat
to the consumer. As a mutter of fact
if we really wish to build up our lead
industry and open up our mines, it must
be done by the government going into
tho business and seeking foreign markets, as then we could compete with tbe
world for no private concern���not even
the C..P. R.���could undersell a publicly
owned enterprise which could also not
only give us a better price for our lead,
but also pay better wages to the employees. So that the only feasible solution appears to me to be government
smelters, refineries and lead works, and
until thia is brought about we will be
at the tender mercies nf the privately
owned concerns who will not compete
against eaeh other, as we well know,
and who are always trying to get protective tariffs imposed in order to better comment! prices. For instance, as
soon as our 35 per cent, duty goes Into
effect the refinery will operate on tbis
side of tbe line Instead of the other���If
there is enough home consumption to
warrant this���and the price go up accordingly, and who will it benefit, the
refinery owner? and the consumer gets
it in the neck, and there will be no
more demand forthe article than there
is now, as practically the same people
will be doing the business. Consequently unless we can go Into foreign
markets and find sale for our lead we
cannot better ourselves. The mere
faot ot having a lot of smelters and refineries around us does not constitute
a market nor do a lot of figures constitute au argument. Before I close your
issue also states that as things are the
manufactured article cannot be turned
out at a profit here. Why? Is It because thero is not a large enough Canadian market? If so will increasing
the price to consumer remedy this? For
you show that if manufactured on this
aide We .would escape buth the 14 per
cent, duty and the 5 per cent, duty?

Letter Deals With Lead lliie.tlon.
Below will bo found a lettercritieising
an article on the lead question whicli
appeared in laBt weeks' issue. Tho
article in question was contributed.
The Eagle believes this to be tho most
vital question affecting this camp at
present and wo invite full discussion of
it by our readers, The Eagle deals
with the qusatlon editorially this week:
Ferguson, B. C, May 4.���Editor Lardoau Eagle: Mr. Editor, It waa with a
good deal of Interest and perhaps
amusement that I read your article in
tho last issue of the Eagle on the subject of "lead tariff." The articlo In
question tells us that the producer is
hampered by a tariff and so to sort of
pull even it suggests another tariff
which will como on the consumor. If
this Industry can survive nil this it certainly Is all right. Now Mr. Editor, I
want somo Information on this Bubject
ami will iislc a few questions. Docs
Canada produce enough load foil her
own consumption or dons sho havo to
Import load from tho United States?
Aa I', understand It wo send our lead ln
bond to be refined on tbo other side.
What effebt will a 85 per cont. Import
duly have on the bond racket? And If
it Is that wa want it refined on this aide,
docs not the article lu question toll us
that refineries are about to start up on
this Bide? Again your article saye that
the producer iB botwoen the devil of
t he export duty and the deep sea of the
5 per cunt, import duty und yet It
wishes to increase tho 5 per cent, duty
to 35 per cent? This appears to be a
paradox. Now Mr. Editor, suppose by
n ny process of legislation, either bonuslng or land grants, or protective tariffs,
we induced refineries to go into business here, could tbey* take any more
oro from us than is being taken now?
Could they compete with tbe Americans? Can they make markets for our
oros? Will they pay us any more for
our lead when tbey, can get all tbey
want nt present I price, nnd further
would thoy not sell lt at present price
plus 35 per cent. ? I may bo wrong,
Mr. Editor, but I fancy that an increase
In cut to thi consumer will contraot

Davis-Calyx Drill, Operated by Ver-
millionForks Mining and Development Company, Cute an Enormous
Seam Over Eighteen Feet Thiok.
The Vermillion Forks Mining and
Development company, who have been
operating a Davis-Calyx drill on the
Princeton townsite have given the Star,
through its resident manager, Mr. Ernest Waterman, particulars regarding
tbe first drillings made.
This is the first nuthentic information on the subject that has been published.
In sinking a distance of 071 feet, 3
seams of coal were cut, aggregating in
width 29* feet.
The first seam, encountered at a
depth of 35 feet below tho su-face, is
4} feet thick; the second seam, (I feot 7*J
inches wide was cut at a depth of 40
feet, and tho third, which has tho
phenomenal width of 18 feet 51 inches,
was pierced by the drill at a depth of
474 feet.
As was expected the coal shows
marked improvement in quality as
depth is attained, thc last cores extracted being ha.-d, heavy, and of good
color.
An analysis is boing mado to determine tbo percentage of fixed carbon
contained.
Judging from tho appearance of the
cores examined, tho coal should bo of
good cooking quality.
Tho strike is of tho utmost importance to Princeton in particular and tho
district generally, as it proves conclusively tbat largo bodies of commercial
coal underlie that portion of tho district contiguous tu thu town. The drill
is working steadily, and further developments will be awaited with great
interest.
The section down to a dopth of nearly
70 feet, is composed as follows:
Gravel 14 feet
Shale 21   "    6 inches
Coal  4   "    ti    "
Sandstone 1 51   "
Coal  0   "    7-!   "

Coal IS fe.t 5|   "
Don't forget that there's n watchmaker in town. If you haven't the.

The people of the Slocan country are
alive to the necessity of calling the attention of the holiday malting public to
the scenic attractions of thoir district.
Nelson, Slocan City, Kaslo, New Denver and Sandon have each formed
Tourist assiciations. No plan of concerted action has yet been decided on,
but a union of all will in time become
a necessity, and rules to that end will,
no doubt bo adoptod.
Wo think thut Ferguson should take
a hand in tho good work, and form
an association on the same lines, and
for tho same objects. We live in the
midst of scenery admitted by the world
to surpass tho tinest in Switzerland,
which country with an area of only 15,-
004 square miles, bus by dint of combination and steady advertising become
the earth's chief touring ground.
There is no need for writing heroics
obout our mountains, lodes, glaciers,
foreBts, or climate. The concrete business fact is tbat wo have them, and the
next point is how can we make them nn
asset in the progress of our country,
We want peoplo to see our country
and form their own conclusions unln-
lluonced by newspapers holding a brief
cither for our good or against it. Get
them to come. Lot them come for
their health, or for recreation, or for
sport. It will prove that those who
come for sport may remain to invest.
Any how they will spend money and
learn things for themselves.
Local tourist associations will prove
of very little benefit, but if u branch of
an organized system, then it would have
its distinct function like an arm to the
general economy of tho body,
The tourist organisation should have
a central body, located at some impor
taut point lu the province, and tho local branches should act as 'coders to
the center. Every dislrict should hnve
its own local body with head quarters
in the principal town. Every man and
woman should join, anil the member
ship fee Bhould bo small enough to impose no possiblo burden on anyone, and
still bo sufficient to contribute to tho
central body. Tho principal duty of
that body would be first advertising,
Beoondly advertising, and lastly still
more and better advertising through
newspapers, magazines, magazine art!
clus, well illustrated pamphlets and tho
ordinary ways of exploitation, tho local branches seeing to it that tbey get
their falrsharoof public notico of tho
attractions of their district, Tho bone*
fit to be derived from such a scherao
will bo readily recognized by
those catering for tho public
amuseniont, hotol keepers, transport
companies and so on, Hut the minors
and prospectors may not so readily see
how their intci'ests are likely to bo
advanced by having gangs of tender-
feet tramping the mountains. They
may seo It r.s through a glass, darkly,
but it should be a rule of each branch
that all minors and prospectors should
send in to tho secretary news of all
game,, bears, door, caribou, goat,
sheop or cougar noted by them. If
tourists want hunting the mail who
reports the gamo should havo tho
recognized right of acting as guide to
the shooting party. The guide can
command very handsome pay, and it he
shows real sport and puts a bear of any
kind across the guns, money is a small
object to the mas who shoots it,  Juit

J. J. YOUNG TO
FIELD IN EAST CALGARY
Comes Out on the Requisition of
a Large Number of East Calgary Electors-He Will Run as
an Independent.
Tho Calgary Herald says: For the
last few days���indeed, from tho date
when it became generally known that
thc oloctions would be on shortly���considerable pressure has been brought to
bear upon J. J. Young, of the Horald,
to enter tho field in East Calgary.
Mr, Young at first refused point
blank to have anything to do with the
matter, as bis time was very fully oc-
eupledwith somewhat exacting business
demands. Wlthiu tho last fow days,
however, a largo number of representative men havo called upon him, and
made strong representations as to the
desirability of his entering the field in
East Calgary. A strongly worded
requisition, signed by W. R, Hull and
over a hundred other electors of East
Calgary, was presented to Mr. Young
yesterday. Ho has therefore considered
it his duty to yield to these requests,
and is now definitely in tho field.
Tho Herald Is satisfied to allow its
readers to judge as to Mr. Young's
qualifications for tho position. Ho has
been a very eloso student of Territorial
politics sinco the inauguration of the
first semblance of responsible government In the Territories, having reported many of tho historic debates in
the ussembiy and tho old North West
Council, and occupied a prominent posi-
teon In tho Territorial journalistic profession for tbe past 15 years. Coming
Ui tho territories in 18S1 he has had ex
ceptional opportunities of becoming Acquainted with overy part of it. He
has largo interests in KiiBt Calgary and
has always been very active in all
all'alrs rolating to the public wolfaro of
tho city and district.
It is a clear caso of thc olllco soeking
the man. Mr. Young makes a personal
saerilice in accepting the nomination,
and he enters the field at the solicitation of many representative electors
belonging to both political parties.
Ho will run as an Independent, and,
while refusing to be tied down to any
party or clique of men, will not go to
Regina as a representative of the constituency, except absolutely untrammelled and free to deal intelligently
with any situation that may arise at
the present crisis in the history of tbt

Ottawa, Arril 29.-(Special to The
Province.)���Hon. Mr, Mulock in the
house to-day introduced his bill for the
settlement of railway labor disputes.
It is intended by compulsory arbitration to prevent lockouts abd strikes on
railways. It will apply to all Dominion roads, including the Intercolonial.
There will be seven boards, one for
eaeh provinco of the Dominion'and ono
Dominion board. Provincial board,
will bo formed of three men, one chose*:
by the railways, one by railroad employees and ono by these two parties.
In the event of these not agreeing thei"
the governor in council will appoint
the third. Thero will bo a Dominion
board of five members, two chosen from
the seven provincial railway representatives and two from the ?even representing tho employees and tho fifth by
these four, and in the event of thei*'
not agreeing then by tho governor in
council.
The Northwest Territories are made
a part of Munitoba for the purposes of
this bill, The bill would make striken
nnd lockouts illegal. Tho boards are
clothed with ample provision to go oi.
with arbitration. Representatives on
the hoards aro to be elected for three
years. I'aeh provincial board shall
have a clerk to do clerical work. The
awards will bo final and thero can be
no appeal to tho courts. The aware
remains in force until a now award ii
made. The Dominion board will have,
a registrar who will keep his regiate:
at Ottawa.
The bill will be under tho chargo of
tho minister of labor and will not b;
passed tbis session, It ,vill boleft ovei
so that all parties interested may becomo familiar with it. The bill is approved by Mr. Ralph Smith and by
Mr. Puttee, tho labor members of thc*
house.

THURSDAY, MAY 8, 1902.
Considerable discussion is taking
place regarding 'the lead question.
The Eagle regards this question as
one of the most important agitating the silver-lead camps of B. C.
?.t the present time.    The Nelson
board of trade are taking active
steps to have a 35 per cent, duty
placed on refined lead and the products ol lead, such as white lead,
litharge, red lead; etc.    The Eagle
is of the opinion that this duty at
the present time   would result in
completely  upsetting  the   present
lead industry of B. C. and we are
very doubtful il the ultimate result
would be at all beneficial to the producers of lead ore.    Let us look at
the present condition of the lead industry.    At present we  have two
courses open to us; we can  markei
our ores at the  B. C. smelters or
we can send them across the line.
Freight rates prohibit us from ship-
ping to Groat Britain.    If we market our ores in 13. C. we are paid the
American or London price less the
Vmerican duty of one and one-half
-cent t*er pound,    lf we market our
ores in lhe United States we have to
pay the duty of t'_   cents on  the
lead  contents of  our ores.     The
question   which   has   agitated the
mind of the lead producers for some
time past is how to get  rid of this
duty.    The Canadian smelters don'i
!*��ave to pay the duty because they
ship their  lead across the line
bond and the lead is refined and returned to the Canadian side, whence
it is  shipped  to  England  or  Germany to be converted into the products of lead, and when returned to
this country has to pay a 5 per cent.
duty before it is allowed  into Canada.
The object of this 35  per cent!
tariff is to shut off outside competition and compel the manufacturing
uf our lead at home and if it would
accomplish this and give the producer a better price for his product
without greatly increasing the cost
to the consumer, it would be a good
tiling, but would  it do tliis?   The
Eagle is of I lie opinion that it would
not and instead of remedying the
evils complained of it might increase
them.    The price of lead ore is nol
regulated in Canada by the price thc
C.   P.  R. and  the other smelting
concerns can get for the finished
product, but by the price they can
compel the producer to take for his
product and  we are of the opinion
that this price would be exactly the
same as  we could   get from the
American smelters less the 1 j4 cents
per pound duty, but the poor Canadian consumer would assuredly get
it in tlie neck and ihe price of lead
products would be hoisted up at
least 30 percent, over present prie'is
and they are high enough now. VVe
think a solution of the difficulty will 1
be found in the government erecting
smelters, refineries and manufactur**
ing plants of its own and then if
they wish let them put on a 50 per
cent, duty and shut out any competition from outside points, but sell
to the Canadian consumer at a fair
margin over the cost of production,
and give the producer at least as
much as the American lead producer
gets for his ore. This would work
no hardship on the present smelting
companies and would give fair play
to producer and consumer alike, and
would build up a lead industry in
Canada beyond the expectations of
I the most sanguine.
The Lardeau and Slocan can pro-
'duce every pound of lead which
Canada needs, and the surplus can
be shipped to Great Britain which'
country took 58,788 long tons of
foreign lead within the last three
months, 14,553 tons ��f which came
from the United States. We say
by all means give us a duty on lead,
but not to enrich private individuals
at the expence of the Canadian pro*
ducer and consumer. We have
been bled enough already and it is
about time that the Canadian people wakened to the fact that their
patriotism has been made the tool of
shrewd business men and they have
been cajoled into protecting infant
industries until the infants have become giant trusts and are to-day
sucking the life blood of the Canadian people. Let our watchword
be, "Government ownership of smelters, refineries and manufacturing
plants.
Trout Lake is enjoying a building
boom so says the Topic of May 5th.
A church, a hospital and an Odd
Fellows' hall are in course of erection. Ferguson can't boast of a
church and ive have no intention of
running opposition to Trout Lake
in this matter for we realize the fact
that tbey are sadly in need of the
regenerating influence which is supposed to radiate from the sacred edifice, Our neighbors are likely to
clear so much money from the
threatened boom that they arc liable
to be drawn away from things spiritual to things temporal. So in the
words of Dad Black we would say
lo our neighbors, "don't go way
with that boom."
The Rossland Miner of April 19
has an interesting editorial item regarding "Cowboy President Teddy
Roosevelt's" being popular with the
masses as distinguished from the
classes. This is not a serious charge
against Teddy, but we have an idea
that the masses had better look out
as judging by the nice little dinner
and other parties during Prince
Henry's visits and the messages ol
condolence sent to European mon-
archs Teddy is still tolerably popular
with the classes,

Wnmi't Looking for Dynamite Bean,
Matt Gilbert, a young man from
Idaho, has a string of bear stories, says
the Western Mining World. In an
evening he will tell a number. Here
is oneol his latest; "But there was
one bear we didn't try to kill. He
visited camp one day while we were
out, and carried away a ten pound box
of giant powder. Wo followed him
down the ravine, to where he had
stopped to smash the box with his paw,
Tho sticks of powber were scattered
all around. The bear had taken a nip
at each one. If he swallowed all he bit
off, he got enough nitroglycerin to
stimulate his heart action up to a million beats a minute. He carried enough
dynamite in his system to blow up a
town. We didn't hunt jilm. Don't believe I would have shot him if he'd
stood right there in the road. I wasn't
looking for dynamite bears and explosions just then."

The solicitor promptly advised him to

public nuisance, and there are a fow
curs in particular tbat should be done
away with. It is now dangerous for
ladies and children to appear on the
street without being attacked by the
curs. A sight whieh occurred on the
main street Tuesday, and witnessed by
a large number of spectators, should
be evidence enough to warrant the killing of such, dogs,- It is.not the first
offence and if one or two of the pet
canine population should be found in
do2 heaven some bright morning, it
should not be taken as a surprise. The
Eaglo would suggest that all who have
worthless dogs keep them tied up or
kill them. Let us declare war on the
curs.
