VOL. II. NO^if 1 FERGUSON, BRITISH COLUMBIA. JANUARY 18. 1901. S2.00 A YEAR.

T
The O. P. B. Has Called For Tenders
For the Wharf and Ties.
THE PA Y ROLL CENTRE NO MAIL S1F
The   Railway May Yet Be   Here
Before the Mall From Arrowhead. ��� Construction    Will
Likely Follow the Com-
letion of the Wharf.
The C. P. R. has not deflnately said
the word whieh is to start work on the
Lardeau road, and may not take the
final step for some weeks yet, or pos-
ibly not this year, Bays the Nelson
Tribune. The fact, however, tbat the
company is going to the length oi
building a transfer slip this winter,
the utility of whieh would be ln
unloading steel and supplies for the
railroad work,, will be taken as unmis-
takeable evidence of their intention In
regard to the road.
The resumption of work on the Lardeau railroad, fourteen or fifteen miles
of which was graded in 1899, is of
great importance to the country
through which it is projected. The
Lardeau has an era of unprecedented
activity in sight if the opinion of the
local and visiting business and mining
men is to be depended upon. All that
is necessary to precepltate the activity
Is railway facilities.
Under existing oiroumstances the
cost of delivering ore at the nearest
smelter is so heavy, probably averaging not less than $40 per ton, that the
only properties working are those in
the Triune and Nettle L. or Sliver Cup
class, where the ore is exceptionally
high grade. Scores of properties are
ready to start when the railway can bo
figured ou In estimating tho coBt of
delivering supplies and moving ore.
The following advt. should have
appeared In tlie Eagle last issuo, but
the mail service having beon completely demoralized for the past two
peeks, it did not reach hero in time.
Bid* will lie received by the undersigned lor
the construction of a Wharf and Transfer Slip
nt Lardo, West Kootonay, B. ('.. and also lor the
furnishing o.i' sn.llOO Track Ties, or a lesser mini-
bcrat the ojitionol the company. Plans, specifications, end terms oltcndcr will bo furnished
on application, or may he examined In my
oflice. Bids must be received In this olltcc not
later than 12o'clock, ou Tuesday, January 15th,
1901.
The lowost or any tender not necessarily
accepted.

Building Operations
Now in Full Swing
Exceedingly Bright
Future of the Camp
Blankoty, Blank the Blank Blank
CHEAP-JOHN POLICY IN VOGUE
A PROSPEROUS COMMUNITY.
Shut off From the Outside World
But Happy Nevertheless.
The steady  downfall  of  snow,  no
mail of any description  for   12 days
past and otherwise being cut oil' from
communication with the outsido world
help* to add to tho charm of living in
the Lardeau.  It has a strong tendency
to sap the buoyancy out of oven an
enthusiastic individual; but for all this
Pergusonltes   are   happy.      In  fact
.everyone is so busy they have no time
-to worry.        The    ore   haulers  aro
endeavoring to keep up with tho raw'
bidet's, the rawhlders are hustling up
the miners'and the miners are drilling
rook and sacking ore tor all they are
worth.    In town those who aro not
building  are engaged In catering to
those applying themselves   to other
vocations.      Between  the production
of Lardeau's rich ores, creating as it
does    the     pay     roll  upon   which
the rest of the community are dependent,   and the upbuilding of the town,
tho residents of this coming centre
have  no  kick  coming.    So long as a
community is prospering there is littlo
complaint    heard.      The   immediate
future being bo bright and the present
so prosperous, why shouldn't we all be
happy In this little world away by ourselves?
Tho man who will contract to carry
the mall between here and Arrowhead
for $12 a trip, must have unfurnished
rooms to let ln his upper stope. But
probably the present jay expects to
get paid for setting around in Arrowhead.
Preparations for increasing the
capacity of hotel accommodation in
Ferguson are now in full swing.
James Cnmmings, with three men,
is busy excavating and clearing off the
snow on his lots, preparatory to putting up a large three storey hotel. A
furnace is to be Installed by W. Ml
Lawrence of Revelstoke, and is also to
put on a tin roof. The hotel will be up
to date in evory particular, furnished
with the best the market affords. "The
Dominion" will probably be the name
of this fine new hotel.
The lumber, 27,000 feet, is now being
laid on tho ground by Mr. Clinic of
Trout Lake, for Andrew Cummlngs,
who is to double the capacity of the
Balmoral hotel. Mr. Cummlngs
Intends to pay special attention to the
cuslne Bervice, and with this in view
will arrange a specially adapted apartment for a night aud day restaurant,
complete with luneh counters, boxes,
etc. Regular moats to be served as
well. When completed the Balmoral,
in charge of so competent a caterer as
Mr. Cummings, will fill the requirements of the pay roll centre in this
respect.
Tbe Eagle building, 24x40, two
storey, with tin flat roof and furnace
furnished by W. M. Lawrence, Rovel-
otoko, Is also well under way. The
basement posts and square timber sills,
are being put lu place, and the lumber, supplied by D. L. Clink, is to bo
on tho ground by February 1st, when
carpenters will rush it to completion.
The ground floor will be the new nest
Tor tho Eagle, with a business ollice
to rent, and sanctum for tho editor ol
this great moral weekly, sheriff and
bill proof; the basement will contain
the furnace and later on the EAGLE
presses, while the upper floor will be
fitted up as a publio hall, a much
needed convenience here. The Eaolk
building should be ready for occupation by March 1st.
The chances are the waterworks
system may be installed before the
biiow goes, so as to be in shape to
cater to the trade created in the early
Bpring.
Tho Methodist church havo the lumber cut for the construction of a good
sized building.
J, A. Morgan one of tho best tonsorial artists In the Kootenays, now of
Revelstoke, will build a barber shop
bath I'oom and tobacco store upon his
lot on Victoria avenue, and put in a
complete cqipment in each department.
Ho will also remove his family of nine
here.
R. Howson, furniture dealer, will
put up a furniture store and stock It,
on one of the two lots lie has already
secured.
P, Burns & Co. will open a meat
market, and possibly build on their lot
on the corner of Walkor street and
Vickers avenue.
Tho Nettie L. people Intend putting
up a business and assay oflice.
J. B. ManrOBS of Rossland, will
build on his lot next Assayer S. Shannon's office.
S. Shannon will build, as soon as possible, a dwelling house on two lots; he
has purchased from R. P. Pettiplece.
John Laughton intends making further improvements upon the Hotel
Lardeau.
Ferguson brothers will soon have
their new bar room and additional
bed rooms completed.
Postmaster G. B. Batho purposes
re-arranging the post oflice at an early
date, by adopting a lock drawer and
box system, making It unnecessary
to enter the store to receive mall, and
the outer entrance ..will be open
at all hours,
R. Davis, mill lessee, of Revelstake,
will move bit family to Ferguson very
soon now, and erect a house on his lot
near   J. Q. Kirkpntrick's  residence.
S. F. W. Gainer, Ferguson's watch
maker, will return to the pay roll
oenti'o with Mrs. Gainer and family
in the course of two months.
The Old Gold camp mining companies, tho Silver Cup people, W. H.
Jackson of Rossland, and several other
mining men will make their headquarters in Ferguson as soon aB the
season opens up.
Fred C. Elliott, barrister, etc., of
Trout Lako, will open an office here.
Mr. and Mrs. Murray Janes will
leave Sandon in the Bpring and take
up their residence In Ferguson.
D. L. Clink is establishing a lumber
yard in Ferguson.
R. Leckle-Ewing, superintendent of
the Empire group, will ngaln make'
Ferguson his headquarters upon his
return from Dollar, Scotland. His
brother, Goorge Leckle-Ewing, Mrs.
Ewing and family, will return from
Rossland in the spring nnd occupy
tho rosidence they built here last
season.
S. Daney, freighter, and Mrs. Daney
will also tako up house In Ferguson
shortly.
Besides these thero are several
bachelor's halls already dotted here and
tbere on the townsite.
Taking all these things into consideration, coupled with the certainty
of tbe railroad and tho known richness
of Lardeau's mineral resources tho
pioneers of Ferguson have much to he
proud of. It was a long and a strong
pull for existence all these years, but
the reward is In sight. Just let 'er
roll,
fustened any length of wire desired.
Tho mat is placed in the bed and keeps
tho person using it, who may be afflicted with rheumatism or neuralgia, as
warm as ho wishes. If placed under
the bedclothes away from tho body it
keeps a bed warm and comfortable.
Another devise is an olectrical curling
tongs. This can be fustened to an
electric light wire tho same as a bulb,
and there is no smoke or soot to
blacken the hair while it is being
curled. Several of these are in use in
this city. A number of small heaters
and cooking stoves are in use in families. They serve to make water hot for
coffee, tea or chocolate, or to cook an
egg or other light, fond. In tho Clarendon there is an electric water heater
whicli keeps the water hot all the timo
for those who want hot drinks. It consists of a coil of high resistance wire
in a tube. Tho wire become? hot and
the heat is communicated to thc tube
which in turn boils the water. At tho
Clarendon and Levy's nnd Crow &
Morris' there are elecflc cigar
lighters. These show that the use of
electricity Is constantly Increasing,
and that, with improvements it is destined to play a still more important
part in our domestic economy.
APPROPRIATIONS NEEDED.
A   Few   of The Most   Important
Items Around Ferguson.
The completion of tho north fork
wagon road to Circle City; a wagon
road to tap tlio properties on the Nettie L. hill; a good trail up Goat creek
to tap all tho Great Northern hill
properties; a big Improvement on tbo
wagon road between hore and Trout
Lake; and a few hundred dollars for
street improvement and Uro protection
Is among tho urgent necessities calling for money from the government.
Another important item upon which
special stress must be laid is the dire
need of a public school building. Th
townsite havo donated thc lots In a
central portion of tho city, tho citizens
havo volunteered to Blash and clear off
the timber, thoro will be more than
twenty pupils hero inside of thirty or
sixty days, aud Mr. Taylor must make
a strong effort to secure tills ull Important appropriation for tho pay roll
centre. In other places thu government has furnished both building end
clearance, hut hore that much Is not
asked for, Ferguson must certainly
have a public school building.
OPERATIONS EON THE TOWSER,
A Systematic Cours? of Dovolop-
mont Eeing Pursued.
Work is goiug along on the Towser
much as usual, awaiting s'ill the
arrival of .Manager .1. M. Skeaff of
Chicago, Tho closo of the arm may bo
the difficulty. The two Inches of
galena end Iron pyrites re-located
some days ago now gives promise of
doveloping inso something of more
value. The trail being practically
closed. Supt. Wm. Innes bus not boen
down since tho big snow storm, so that
little is known of developments which
may bave transpired during the past
week.

Not a Peg   Moved To   Open  Up
Communication   Between   the
Lardeau   and the   Outside
World���The Authorities
Will Not Pay Enough.
Day after  day.  In   constant expectancy, have Fergttsonites  waited for
the mail; and   day after day have we
learned  that, the outgoing mail for the
past twelve days   is still at Thomson's
Landing: the  arm between the Landing and Arrowhead  is frozen bo solid
that tho big C. P. R. boats have been
unable to break the ice to come in for
Silver Cup and Nettle L. ore.     A man
named Thomas Re.teh is supposed to
have the contract of carrying the mail
during tlie close of navigation, but up
to this  date  apparently no effort has
been made to get even   the   letters to
tbeir destination.   The same old story.
The men who can and havo faithfully
performed the service will not  oven
put in a tender for the contract, knowing full well that the government will
not pay enough   for   tho undertaking.
The last man who undertook the job
got so sick of it that be posed as having   got  drowned, and made himself
scarce:  hut  this year we have a man
who can quietly   look on and lot the
long-suffering people  of the Lardoau
submit to their fate.    There is no loss
than a dozen mon in camp at this minute
who could rnrr.C this mail, ice or no ice,
if Iho postal department would pay the
price.    The ice is so strong that a big
river steamer cannot, break it, yet the
present contractor feels so heavy  that
ho  docs  not  care   to tackle the task.
The citizens  of both Trout Lake nnd
Ferguson  have   held    meetings and
wired Postoffice    Inspector   Dorman.
Postmaster-General .Mulock and W. A.
Gallihor, M. P., hut, up to the time of
going to press no reply  or  mail has
arrived.   Words fail   tn   express the
annoyance caused  hy this unnecessary
delay in  exchanging mails between

to arrive al this or that place in time to
pay notes or other obligations, are tied
up at either sldo of the  arm.   Mining
deals In progress are affected, building
operations  are being retarded and a
dozen and one   other annoys nees aro
onusel; all   because  the  government
will not pay a decent price to a man
competed and prepared to do the work.

; The next best, step lor Lardeaultes to
take is questionable. We certainly
must do something. A subscription
could bo taken up and given to a man
who will bring Ihe mail In--ln short
order too���just to show tho postal
authorities that it is not an Impossibility, If Lardeaultes had Mr. Mulock
piled up some place In a snow hank
they would talk Into him llkn a telephone, In the meantime, however,
we are up against tho rottonost mail
service ever perpetrated on any Can-
ad Inn public.
The
A  Great   Convenience  For
Old   Maid.  .
It is astonishing to what a Dumber
of usos electricity Is boing put to In
this city, says the Rossland Miner. At
the Le Roi alinft hoiiBO and in the
International there are electric stoves
in use. One reason why they are used
in theso two places is that thore iB loss

or coal. Thero are several heating pads
in use around the city, and a couple of
them are on exhibition in tbo window

covered with asbestos to prevent the

THE WASTE OF
COMPETITION
There are probably few sayings,
whioh are accepted as unadulterated
wisdom, and which have attained tbe
rank of proverbs, which do not contain
nine parts foolishness to one part truth,
and none of them Is more open to
question than tho oft quoted ^'Competition is the life of trade."
If we accept competition as the life
of trade we must also add that it is the
death of the trader. Nothing appals a
business man so much as the waste of
competition. It is a perfectly safe
assertion to say that 75 per cent, of a
merchants profits are lost in competition. Equally fallacious is it to say
that "competition lowers prices." If
three-quarters of a firm's profits are
wasted in competition, would not that
firm by co-operation be able and willing to divide that waste with its customers and at the same time more
than double its own prollt? Any other
statement is preposterous. Anything
is ,':i:ted which is non-productive, and
to thi class belong the army of travelling salesmen and all means of adver-
tUing. A business which could oe
coiul.ioted without either travelling
sales,,ion or advertising would be an
assured success from the start. Any
merchunt will gladly inalto a contract
with a salesman for half profits and
many will givo him 75 per cent, of the
profits. The buyer who refuses to buy
anything from a sulesman but insists
on mailing his orders direct to the sol-
ler is able to do better in prices than
he who "waits fur the salesman to
como round." Every firm has a fow
such customers and would rather loso
three of the ordinary kind than one of
them, becauso tho profit on tlie sale to
such a customer all goes to the credit
of thc business instead of tbe salesman
getting the larger! share of it. Now
travelling salesmen are a nocessity of
competition, but in combination or cooperation they aro usolcss'drones and a
useless drain on the business. This is
tho lesson which the trusts havo taught
us arid those large aggregations of
capital claim that thoir ��� chief saving
will be a "saving in administration."
The lirst loping oil of expenses Is to
discharge a large number of salesmen.
No trust was over yet formed which
did not claim, and properly too, that by
co-operation it would bo able to reduce
the cost of production and also reduce
the price to the consumer. In fact tbe
great argument urged in favor
of tbe trusts is that one and all
they havo lowered the cost of com-
modotlesto tbe people. Why should
they not do so ? Their loss ln the
waste of competition is only a small
percentage of what an ordinary cor
poratlon or business firm has to pay.
Thon when we remember tbat some
newspapers charge a dollar per agate
line and some magazines charge four
hundred dollars per page for one
issue to advertisers, the amount of
waste in the advertising necessary to
successfully conduct a competitive
business Is appaling.
There are many other means of
waste as, for Instance, the impossibility of a small firm making a proper
division of labor, the tendency of
competition in society and" dress to
make workers steal, in order to keep
"in the swim," the large losses in bad
debts whioh are directly due to competition in the retail trade and many
others which will readily suggest
themselves to all. It is inside the
mark when we say that on the average
a business firm pays sevebty-flve per
Oent. of Its profits to wasteful competition and has only twenty-five per
oent. for itself.
Now suppose that we had �� government shoe factory on an enormous
scale where division of labor and improved machinery were carried to
their furthest extent. That evory
shoo put out by tbe factory bore the
stamp and gunranteo of the govern
ment as boing of a certain standard
and that, the govornmont should udd a
not profit of live por cont. on each shoe.
Does any ono doubt that tho government shoe would drive all other shoes
Off tho market becauso it could be
mndo ehoaper and better and a buyer
would be sure of "getting hiB money's
worth?" Competition among, tlie
small buyors in buying would bo eliminated because oauh would pay the
same price for the same shoe. Sub'
stations for selling would be establish'
ed and the government would sell
directly to the consumer, thus saving
to tho people, not only tho waste of
salesmen and advertising but also the
wholesale and retail profits. No
knowledge of shoes would be necessary for the buyer, as the same shoe
would be sold everywhere for the same
price. All swindles in shoes would be
done away with. It is the consumer
who pays for the waste of competition,
either by getting an inferior article or
by paying a higher price. The Government shoe Factory would not be
compelled to "hunt for trade," but the
trade would go to the factory because
better value could be obtained there
than from any corporation or private
enterprise. Who would now go back
to the old methods of private letter
post?
Corporations were formed because
individual competition was so keen
that all profits were wasted in competition. The trust was formed
because corporate competition was so
keen that, again all profits W9re
wasted. The next step In evolution
of industry will be the competition of
trust against trust which' will waste
all profits in competition. Then will
come the Government Factory, which
the trusts are teaching us now to conduct and which the trusts themselves
as well as the people will demand so
that competition will be entirely done
away with.
The most perfect co-operative socialistic scheme of the present day is
tho life insurance company. The
whole idea of life insurance is tho
protection of the individual by the
mass of the people, the saving of the
weak individual man by the strong
whole body of mankind. It is a pooling of issues, co-operation, christian
socialism. One of the most astounding facts in the business world is that
no old line, mutual life Insurance
company has ever failed. Think of
that, what a lesson for thu industrial
brotherhood,
But, say the objectors, what will
become of the shoe manufacturers?
They will have to go. That is tho
directors and olllci.'i's nf the trusts will
have to go or will becomo officers in
tile government factory. Tbe greatest
blessing will fall on tho shoo workmen.
Under the present system when the
market becomes overstocked tho
workmen, who can least afford it, are
discharged for a time and the factory
"shuts.down." The workman must
llvo in idleness without pay, using up
his savings, until the factory "starts
up" attain. Hut the officers, who could
best afford to be idle, are eontinuod ou
full pny during the "shut down,"
Then comes the necessity for finding
an outlet for the overstock nnd so the
foreign markets are opened and the
shoe workman must not only Bhoe tho
people of this country but must also
shoe the English, tho Germans and the
Chinese. Ho by just that much has
more than ibis tharc of tho nation's
work to do aud Is still living from hand
to mouth without opportunity for advancement. Under tho govornment
system lie would bo engagod by the
year or for life during good behavior.
When it was found that by working
ten hours each day ho made more shoes
than the country needed, tho hours
could bo shortened to eight or to six.
The workman himself would get some
advantage from Improved machinery,
which now all goes to the officers" and
directors. Tbe workman would have
���some time for rest, recreation, Btudy
and improvement, yet be sure of n good
living and in no fear of poverty or starvation. Nine-tenths of the crime und
suffering in the world is tho result of
poverty or the fear of poverty. Take
away that and our land would be a
comparative paradise.
The five per cent, profit to the government, which would pay all the
taxes and wipe out the national debt
in short order, no one would grudge,
but we should all feel that we were
'(getting our money's worth."
��� No law is a just law, no scheme of
government is an honest one which
does not make the people under that
government happier end better. By
people we do not mean n few favored
ones and by a happier we do not mean
a richer, lt is true they often go hand
In hand but not always.   How man;
of our laws under the present system of
government will stand this test?
Does not the Government Factory
stand the test? Would it not benefit
more people than it would injure?
Would it not benefit every wearer of
a shoe by giving full value for least
price? Would it not benefit every
shoe workman by giving him an assured comfortable income and shorter
hours of labor? The rioh officer nnd
director aro tho only ones that would
suffer, but how small a minority. How
long, Oh Lord, how long, will the
multitude ot mankind submit to be
doomed to cater to the wills and
luxury of kings, whether they be of
blood, of title, of fashion or of brains?
SCREAMLETS.
The Eagle begs to give its contemporary a kindly "haunch." A new
year and century has dawned upon the
world, a fact which the Topic has not
yet tumbled to, judging by its dateline.
If the government owned and con
trolled the means of production, there
would be no fallen-woman creators in
the nature of sweat-shop departmental
stores. Proper conditions would prevail and all the people would receive
the benefit.
It Is little wonder that the postal
deficit in Canada is being lessened by
Mr. Mulock. Between giving out a
two-bit service, aud the carrying of
eastern departmental store goods to
western purchasers, the profits should
be evon more than they are.
The prospector's chances to locate a
bonanza or make a stake would not be
any the less if the provincial govern
ment owned the Trail smelter instead
of the C. P. R. If the profits derived
from smelting ores went into the government treasury instead of to foreign
shareholders there would be no need
of a mineral tax.
No one who looks the situation in
the face can doubt that the mail-order
houses ore permanent institutions.
Thoy exist solely because they meet a
demand ofthe people; they really do
"fill a long felt want." Whining will
not drive them from existence; a boycott is powerless to hurt them ; resolutions simply advertise them. The
government will, some day, own th
immense distributing stations.
Tlio Eagle must remind tlio Topic
that were the provincial government
pursuing a socialistic form of govern
ment there would be no need of an ore
tax, or any other kind of a tax. Tho
government would bo developing its
own resources, under the best of social
conditions, building its own railways,
steamboats, telegraph and and tole'
phone lines, establish its own smelters
and refineries, and any other line of
business whioh a trust of to-day con
trols.   See the difference, friend Topic

The Man Who Can See the Length
Of Hia Nose Will Not Hesitate
to Invest His Money in the
Lardeau,   the    Coming
damp   of B.  O.
That the Lardeau district has unbounded mineral resources no well informed person will deny.
The Lardoau district is on the eve
of a new era, brought about by the
wonderful developments, finds and
strikes made the past season; along
with the fact that the construction
<)f a railway by the C. P. R. is
absolutely certain for early next
season.
The large ore shipments being
made this winter in .spite of'the fact
that transportation and treatment>costB
from $35 to $50 per ton, Indicates the
high grade nature of our ores.
Witb cheap transportation next
season, when Lardeau's'acres of low
and medium grade ore can be treated
profitably, the possibilities are astounding.
The attention of outside Investors
has already been arrested and hundreds are now making arrangements to
operate in this district after the
early spring���in fact some of them are
here now, securing bonds, looking for
and finding ground-floor propositions.
No district In Canada to-day offers
better inducements for the Investor
than this one. The mining business is
no monopoly. The poor man has even
chances, at least more so than in other
lines. When he finds a " Triune" he
doesn't have to sell. What other occupation in life oan a man follow where
his chances with a'wealthy competitor
are less diminished than in prospecting
and mining?
"Thore is a tide in the affairs of
men, which, taken at the flood, leads
on to fortune." It may not bo your lot
to make a fortune, but If over there was
an opportunity In a mining camp, the
Lardeau offers ii today. Don't wait
y .oil the railway comos; for then the
prospector Is not in tho same need of
money, to enable him to hang on.
If V' have money to invest now is
the tint to investigate. Come straight
to Ferguson ; you will And mon hero
who have properties to sell ; in faot
Ferguson is the home, tho meeting
place for prospectors aud investors.
Tho owners, ns a rule, will bo found
most reasonable and always ready to
give you information, cheerfully escort
you to thoir properties, and otherwise
Interest you In their Interests. We
have tho mineral resources and no
money to develop them. Will you
como in and help us and thus help
yourself?
Showing the position of tbe
streams, mountains and passe'.
waterways, every claim in tbe
Trout lake mining district, tbe
trails and wagon roads, location
of surveyed railways, and everything which will assist an out
sider to acquaint himself with
our district. The production
of this map has been taken hold
of by two of the best fitted men
for the purpose in the province
Messrs. A. P. Cummins, P.L.S.,
and S. Shannon, B. A., both having personal and practical knowledge of the district.
The map is to be beautifully
lithographed in five colors and
entiroiy free from advertieln -
matter of any kind.
The urgent necessity for such
a complete map, probably 40 x 40
has long been felt by all persons
interested in this distriot; and it
is a pleasure to note that two
suoh able men have decided to fill
the bill. The Prloe, the same
to all, has been placed at the
sum of $1.00, prepaid to any
