T*s Brilliant Member for Rossland
.' Visits Ferguson and Incidentally Talks Politics.
Smith Cu.-tis, M P. P. (er Rossland
rldtag, ramo Into fergueon Friday
night last, going out again Saturday
night for Fish creek where bo is interested in mining property, and (rom
thence to Victoria where he will In*
veitlgatc some mineral deposits on
Vancouver Island. Mr. Curtis spent
moat o( Saturday looking ovor aome
mining property near Ferguson, but
before leaving town culled ac tho Eagle
sauctum where tho Eagle editor subjected him to a questioning on matters
pertaining to mining and also on tho
politlOHl situation in the province.
Asked n�� to ibo correctness of Mr.
Jeeeph Martin's self piulso for having
been the moans of getting the land
grant to, the Cauatllao Northern rail
way thrown out us reported In tho
Eaglo from tho .Rossland Minor. Mr,
Curtis sttid Unit Mr. Martin's assumption was absurd fur ho hud nothing to
dowiih.it-* being thrown nut. lint his
action''Tfr-the matior during the past
two sessions nf thei house was wholly
dlffe'i'.'fit. from what he seems to wish
to lead the po iple to believe. N'oti.nly
did Mr. Martin nnttitke the stand ho is
reported to have said lie took, hut none
nf bis followers In the house ever took
sucb a stand. As tn tlio report thut the
elections truly bo brought on boloro an
other S'lssiiin, Mr. Curtis said be
thought It very probable thut the gov*
ernnieot, would urine on a goneral elec*
tion for they I'tinuiit hope with the gov*
orniiioiit, aa now constituted to carry
any important legislation because of
their Biiii-.ll and wavering majority.
Tbe government's actions Inst session
were vory generally condemned, and
there uupears to bt* little confidence
left, fur tbo gnvernniunt, in tbe hearts
of the people.
Being asked il be thought party poll*
tics would be Introduced Into the next
general election contest, Mr. Curtis
���aid bo did nut much think they would,
If thoy woro thoro would be at least
three purties, the liberal, Conservative and L'li'greaslvn. If mis is done
he would certainly support .he Pro-*
Jtresslviw. Mr. Curtis said, however,
It was his decided wish to drop out of
politics and lie did not Intend to run at
next election if he ouuld possibly avoid
It. Mr. Curtis also said that he worked,
bard und conscientiously lust s isiun to
get legislation passed that wuuld bone-
lit tbe whole country, but though a lot
of time wus consumed, littlo was accomplished. He . characterized the
legislation passed and attempted by
the.DutiauiuIr government i\�� -surpassing in stupidity that of any preceding
government What was given away of
the couutry's resources was far ln excess of what the Turner or any other
governmenb.had given.

owing to the shuflle between, the Old
Country and local shareholders. A
large amount of capital has been applied fur in the Ophir-Lade by local
Ferguson men, the majority of whom
are practical miners who know a good
tiling when they see it. The Eagle
looks for great thlagKc from this company.
In conversation with W. B. Pool the
Eaglo representative   secured    some
Interesting information concerning the
important changes which have taken
place.   He stated that the changes had
been made in the Interests of tbe prop.
arties and of kit parties.
"I was tbe orieiuul discoverer of tbe
I Nettie L." su'd Mr. Pool, "and as 1
, hare had charge of its development
'ever since, I naturally take a deep
interest In the mine and wish the new
owners every possible success In mak
ing it tbe great producer which it is
capable of becoming.   After years, of
bard  work  thinking and rustling, I
have brought the Nettie L. to a point
when it ran ship on a large scale.   Ow
Ing to tbe low price ot silver and the
cost of smelting and transportation, I
j was opposed in the past to shipping any
more ore than would pay the expenses
uf  development,   and   this   brought
about one of the reasons leading to tbe
change that haa taken place. The English shareholders bought a controlling
interest In the mino a yoar ago and
wanted me to ship all the oro In sight.
In view of this difference of opinion
and for several other reasons, I decideo
to sell out my remaining interest anu
drop out of   the management.   One
strong reason for my doing so was lhat
I wanted tu be ln a position along witb
my partners, Messrs. Young, Godsal
and..Cochrane to devote all of our
energies to the big gold properties
which we own.   You can say on my
authority that in the settlement between us and tbe English shareholders
It was arranged tbat we should sell
them our Interests in the silver properties and- buy them out ot tho gold
properties. ,
"The deal Includes the Silver Cup
In which we bave sold out our interests
to the English shareholders, and lam
glad to say that I believe tbey .have

In his inlriKjuctory remarks tho
speaker referred to the lost child found
in the Temple of Jerusalem and culminating In bis memorable words,
which was the keynote of his life.
"Wist ye not that I must he about'my

God's love to man. "For God so loved
the world tbat he gavo his only begotten son, that whosoever believelb in
him should not perish, but nave everlasting life."   John 3-16.
Another mission of Christ was to
bring man to a knowledge of his sinful
condition and the neod of a personal
Saviour. Christ's mission was essentially tbat of a preacher, vlz-of glad
tidings: "I came, says Christ, not to

Fttltl'-Y. JULY 25. 1902.
As wjll-beseen  elsewhere, in Ihe
columns ot thi. week's Eagle, great
���hanges have taken place in the four
big mining companies of Ferguson.
What   significance   these   changes
will have on the future ot this camp,
*e feel that it is  premature' as ��� yet
to foretell, but looking nt   the mat-
Ctr generally, the Eagle hardly feels
justified at the present time in commenting definitely.    While on the
me hand we Hfe sorry that die two
i^est  stiver properties of the camp
lave  lost the services of Manager
. Awl; on the other hand we cannot
but  express  gratification   that   the
.re-arrangement probably means the
inl induct ion of a  larger  amount ol
additional capital into the Lardeau,
for it is reported lhat the new capital invested  hy the London  syndicate is to be re-invested hy the'local
men in bringing our gold proper! es

Mines,   Lid.,  nnd  also ofmo.-t of

ment exclusively all   through the
various    stages  of   development.
The Nettie L. wus nut what wou d
be called, in this camp, a particularly promising prospect during the
early stages of its development aid
it required  thc abounding faith and
persistence of Mr. Pool to prevent
aa abandonment of the idea of its
b.ingmade a mine.    Even the Provincial' Mineralogist condemned it
in  its early prospect stages, but
later, after depth had been attained
he pronounced it a very valuable
pro.iWty.   Thus   we   believe   lhat
Mr. Pool deserves great credit for
the enviable state that the mine is
in to-dny ���-and for the good that hns
and wlH -yet accrue to the town of
Ferguson;   The Nettie  L. having
turfed out so good, confidence was

Mr. Attwood who has been .engaged
during the past two months In connection with the Nettle L��� Silver Cup,

1.11. Men In llawcou.
, Vancouver, B. C, July 19.���"The
labor situation In Dawson at the pm*
entttme is set lime, and the market
!��� very decidedly overdone. A im
days liefore I left I,SOU men were at*
plying for the lobs of 211". and many t)
! the men weie pretty nearly dead brok,.
Some of them came out, during the
time of the low rates on the river, bio
I sm sure there are many people sti ���
In tho Klondike who have not inonet
enniH'h to take tbem by steamer up the
i riser."
Tins statement was made this mnri *
lag'by Mr. H. Slbhle, who return,!
from Dawson yesterday, comlnir down
by the steuner Dolphin.   Mr Stlit.lt
'has been a road muster for several
months In the employ of tie govern
ment In the north, and hud a goni

New Copper Smelting Froe..,.
A new metho-i of treating cupper ore
has been devised by William J. Knox
of Edgewood Park, I'a. In the oxide
tion of an Iron-bearing copper matte In
a molten state, lu a baslu-llned vessel,
little or no silica being present, Mr
Knox bus found that there Is formed a
highly fusible compound of Iron and
Sulphur���an oxyaulpbldeof iron. Air
is forced Into matte, thereby generating heat snfllulentto maintain the msis
In s molten statu and causing the for*
mstlon nf Ironoxysulphlde under suvb
conditions that substantially no.llleste
of Iron Is formed. The cupper Is super
ated by precipitation. Tbe process, It
will be observed, Is somewhat nlmlllsr
l�� tbat of making Bessemer steel.
Tracy tbe Outlaw.
A great deal of space has been si
lotted of lato In one Tracy, who ae
csped from the Oregon state prison st
Salem on June 9. Io affecting his escape Tracy killed three guards snd a
hotchusehas been kept up ever sines
for the fugitive through the state of
Washington by sheriffs, military and
citizens. When bis pursuers get at too
close quarters Tracy does, not fall to
make his presence felt and each week
adds to the number of those whom he
has killed or wounded, and his trail
has been marked by blood. There la s
reward of $0,000 offered for Tracy's
body dead or alive and sooner or later
hie capture will be effected,
