There are strong ••vi»ieni*»*» that,

main nttriu'titiii   f<»r   guM  seeker*,
this spring. Over 10,000 people
are known to have applied to the
government and others for information about the discoveries. A few
days ago a commercial traveller
gave it as his opinion that there
would be 10,000 men in the Horsefly in the spring. He did not
know until he reached here where
the Horsefly district was, but
formed his opinion of tho number
coming from what he had heard
among people in Kootenay and the
northern states.
The Kuinloops Route.
Replying to the Ashcroft Journal's
criticism of the route to the Horsefly
from Kamloops, the Standard says:
"We claim to have the shortest route
to the headwaters of the Horsefiy.a fact
which anyone can prove by looking at
an ordinary map of British Columbia.
"It is not always wise to jump at conclusions. Lots of prospectors may think
that when they arrive at Harper's Camp
on the Horsefly river they are close to
the new diggings. This is not so, for
they will still have 70 miles to go It is
true that Ashcroft is petitioning the
government for a trail or road over
this 70 miles, but the prospector will be
going over ground already worked or
taken up. If he wishes to waste his
time by looking around to see what
Tom, Dick and Harry are doing along
the hanks of the Horsefly river, he had
,betterjaka,thiLlmigestirouteJL   ButJLhe
wishes to get to work aB quickly as
possible, and look for gold in a country
at present un prospected, he had better
take the shortest route via the North
Thompson and Clearwater. They must
remember that Kamloops is also petitioning the government for a trail of 40
miles right into the new placer grounds,"
By word of advice the Standard says:
"Still the excitement is just as keen
about the Horsefly, and perhaps a word
of advice to intending prospectors may
not be out of place here. It is not advisable to start in too errly, as nothing
can he gained by it, and the dilliculties
are Infinitely greater. Wait until the
end of April or the beginning of May,
it is quite soon enough. By that time
the snow will be off the ground and the
prospector can see what he is doing.
"For the benefit, of those not familiar
with the British Columbia Mining laws,
we. publish the following:
"To locate, hold, or mine a placer

UNITKD STATES   MIN Kit A I.  OUTPUT,
The production and progress of the
mining and metallurgical industries ol
the United .States for 1901 has heen reviewed by the Engineering and Mining
Journal. Coal, upon which all the
other mining- industries depends for
fuel, was treated first, and the total
production was estimated at 300,000,000
Bhort tons—an amount considerably in
excess of that brought to the surface In
Great Britain and far beyond the quantity mined in any other country. Nearly
the entire amount was consumed at
home, despite a material growth in exports. The anthracite coal fields of
Pennsylvania contributed one-fifth of
tbe total. The iron trade showed a
production that a few yearB ago would
have been regarded as impossible, and
the quantity of pig iron exceeded tha
output of Great Britain and Germany
combined. Itaw iron, steel aud finished
products showed that aggregate equal
to that of pig iron. The enormous output was not in excess of the demand,
and at the end of the year the great
mills and furnaces were almost all behind with orders. Ore specimens from
Lake Superior region exceeded 20,000,-
000'tonsr-Export—trade—in_iroii—and
steel showed a materia! falling off In
comparison with 1900, but the home
market made up the deficiency. Gold
production showed an increase nnd
amounted to between $82,000,000 and
$83,000,000. California, Colorado and
tha Black Hills regions were the heavy
gold producers. Silver made no gain
over 1900, and copper fell off slightly—
'2,500 tons. The Lake Superior region,
California and Utah showed gains in
copper, hut they did not make up the
shortage elsewhere. There was some
decrease in lead, argentiferous lead fall -
ing off 20,000 tons and Boft lead incroas-
ing 10,000 Zinc, showed a gain with
Missouri as the chief gainer. Quicksilver and nickel made good progress

w The Outlook  for the Province  as seen hy the SS
vQ Victoria Mining Record. " 5te
The development of a country proceeds in recurrent waves between which
there are periods of relaxation, visible
enough on the surface of things,although
the tide may be making all the time.
The waves of development follow upon
either the discovery of wealth available
without railway facilities, or the building of railways into rich parts of the
country, unproductive without them.
Thus the firet great rush into this province resulted from the early discoveries of placer gold. The second followed
upon the completion of the Canadian
Pacific railway, the third, upon the
tapping of the Kootenay country by the
Great Northern railway and the Nelson
and Fort Shepard railway, the fourth,
upon the construction of the Crow's
Nest Pass railway and the Columbia
and Western railway. The fifth has
not yet arrived. The third and fourth,
however, were so closely connected as
almost to be merged into one. The
stimulative effect of the one had not
ceased before the other began to make
'itinnfluimaflelir^
no ordinary disturbance. Capital and
population poured into the country from
tbe United States, from Eastern Canada
and from Great Britain. Unfortunately,
as is always the case, a large percentage
of the capital so introduced was wasted.
Itisonlyjust to our own province to
say that this was far more due to the
entire lack of discrimination on the
part of outsiders who sought sudden
enrichment, than to either want of prb-
fitable openings in the province itself,
or to wilful deception on the part of our
people. But as only philosophers blame
themselves, a reaction set in against
British Columbia as a field for enterprise and the credit of the country fell,
as one undertaking after another showed
external evidence of that fallow predestined from its inception. In addition
to this feature, no new country has
been opened up. Here we havo the
true explanation of the complaints
which have had frequent expression
during the last two years. It may be
pointed out, however, that those complaints, so far as they havo been directed against what may be called the intensive development of the territory
already opened, are without reasonable
foundation. That, which may be compared to the steady making of the tide,
has been going on in a most satisfactory
manner, and is far from showing any
evidences of decline.
The outlook for thu coming year, as
restricted to those districts, is not unfavorable from a mining point of view,
but possesses elements of uncertainity
Irom a  market  point of  view.   The
market for silver, lead and copper, is
unsatisfactory   from    the    producer's
standpoint.   The piUvs of silver Is unlikely to revive, unless in response to
some renewal of demand not yet fore-
Hi-oil    Chinas imports of silver have

metals. All those interested in the
mining industry have been thoroughly
awakened to the fact that so long as it
is a mere pendant to the United States,
it can never be placed on a solid foundation, and must always be subject to
avoidable costs and charges. We may,
therefore, look during tbe coming year,
for the establishment of the industry of
silver-lead refining, and for other steps
to give independence and stability to
this most important source of wealth.
The main silver-lead producing territory of the province, the district of East
Kootenay, possesses every facility for
the cheap production and treatment oi
silver-lead ores, and a beginning bas
already been made in rendering thesa
available by the construction of a
smelter at Marysville. But whether
the industry will be so reorganized
during 1902 as to stimulate production
to the amount of which that district is
capable is somewhat doubtful. The
chief progress which will be noticeable
in East Kootenay will be the continued
^eTelSpiiu^TftTl^^
productive capacity of the field is still
far from being sufficiently developed to
supply the market open for its coal and
coke. And while the production has
shown a great increase during 1901 over
1900, a Btill greater development may
be expected during 190-2,
With regard to the othei silver-lead
producing districts, notably the Slocau,
there is no reason to expect a decline
in production if only for the reason that
less favorable conditions than havo prevailed during 1901 could not well bo
Imagined The dry ore belt on Slocau
lake is yearly growing iu importance
and the outlook for steady progress and
development there is very good; while
if railway communication into the Lardeau becomes an accomplished fact,
this district will immediately occupy an
important position as productive of
high grade ores,
If ono were to cast a forward glance
the eventual complete opening up of
British Columbia would be sure to de-
pond on the completion of three trunk
lines of railway running from east to
west with intersecting feeders running
from north to south. The development
of the wide and certainly rich district
of the Similkameen depends on a westerly extension of the Crow's Nest Pas*
and Columbia and Western railways.
The development of the northern are*
of the province depends upon the ex-
tension of the Canada Northern to tide
water on the Pacific ocean. While that
of the intervening territory depends
upon a system of north and south feeders, one of which will be on the Island
of Vancouver, connecting the three
msin easterly and westerly trttuk lines,
it is evident, however, that a purview
of the (-.fleets of such development would
carry lis far beyond thi* possibilities ot
one year. The problem before the
province for the immediate future is
entirely whether the wrangling about
the best -method* of wearing th«e railways will ve**is within a year, anil

FELLOW PILGRIMS: The LkpokIs located at NewDenver. B. C, and can be traced to many parts of the earth. It comes to the front
every Thursday and has never been raided by the sheriff, snowslided by cheap silver, or subdued by the fear of man. It works for the trail
blazer as well as the bay-windowed and champagne-flavored capitalist. It aims to be on the right side of everything and believes that hell
should be administered to the wicked in large doses. It lias stood the t-est of time, and an ever-increasing paystreak is proof that it is
botter to tell the truth, even if the heavens do occasionally hit our smokestack. A chute of job work is worked occasionally for the benefit
of humanity and the financier. Como in and see ns, but do not pat the bull dog on the cranium, or chase the black cow from our water
barrel: one is savage nnd the other n victim of thirst. One of the noblest works of creation is the man who always pays the printer; he is
sure of a bunk in paradise, with thornless roses for a pillow by night, and nothing but cold to look at by day. -

THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 13, 1902.
Boston is experiencing a lively
anti-vaccination movement. Bos-
tonians were always noted for their
astuteness.
The death rate of France exceeds
the birth rate. When women are
less true to their calling than female dogs a nation must decay.
French botonists are endeavoring
to vaccinate plants against parasitic disease. Dr. Brouse ought to
vaccinate the town's water pipes.
Gladstone once said there was
nothing on earth except a mint that
could make money without advertising. And the grand old man
was right.
A fellow found $100 in gold
nuggets while digging post holes
near-Sumastheother-dayrandnow
all the farmers in that neighborhood are digging post holes.
Senator Terapleman, of Victoria,
has been appointed a member of
the Dominion cabinet, without
portfolio at present. It is understood that he will shortly be placed
at the head of one of the depart
nients at Ottawa.
If one half the energy were displayed by the railroad companies
in opening up and advertising the
coal lands of H. O. and Alberta.,
that, they are expending in lying
about them and trying to outgrab
each other, the whole of Canada
would feel tlie benefit- of it.
A married editor soliloquizes
thus of the gentler Hex: •'There is
gladness in her gladness when Hlie's
glad, and there is sadness in her
Badness when she sad, but tho gladness of her gladness and the sadnens
of her sadness is nothing to her
madness when she's mad."—Pittsburg Kansan.
And now comes the news that a

law, which he would amend. But
the Kaslo prophet was dreaming.
Bad digestion.
A movement is on foot in some
parts of the States to induce the
court judges to abandon their simple
republican dignity and revert to the
custom of the English justices by
once more assuming the gowns,
because it is a ' 'symbolic aid calculated to impress the people with
the dignity and importance of the
bench." What rot! When the
bench has to resort to symbolism
to uphold the dignity of the law, it
is time to go out of business. There
is already too much "symbolism"
about justice, too much cloaking of
the law and too little sure aud swift
justice. Canada is suffering from
this very thing.
Martin r^ke Liberal conven-
j tion held in Vancouver
LCSuCriast week decided unanimously in favor of drawing
party lines in Provincial politics,
The old provincial executive of the
party was dclared defunct and a
new executive appointed.   Joseph
Martin and hiB following carried
the convention by storm, and
Martin was named leader. Speaking of the results, the Province
says:
"The result was that not only
were many good members of the
Liberal party, whom the Liberal
executive decided it would be wise
in view of their standing and influence to admit to the councils of the
party, excluded, but the executive
itself was disfranchised.
"Even the chairman who opened
the proceedings was deprived of his
right to take any part in the discussion which might result. Senator Templeman realized this, and
of course left a meeting in which
he hud no recognized position. He
wns followed by all the members of
the executive present, and by all
who were not numbered among the
friends of those who bad organized
this political conspiracy.
"But this purged assembly cannot surely be called a convention
of the Liberal party. After having
excluded all except those on whom
they knew they could absolutely
depend to do as they dictated, they
wore ut liberty to pass whatever
resolutions they chose; but what
authority havo they from the party
»h a whole for having done so? They
cannot be called in any nemo of
the word a convention. They have
no regular legal existence even now
and cannot legislate for anylxtdy
nave themnelvPB.
"Tho roBiilt of the con veil tion is
most  deplorable.     It   leaves the
Lilierals of  British  Columhia in a
far worse  disorganized   condition
than they were before.    It render*
uuion at any   future   timo, should
circumstances arise which  would
make party lines advisable,  very

latter matters haye been achieved
by the convention. In regard to
the other—the adoption of Federal

Thought. I would lay off a shift
this week.
The printing palace gang said a
long letter was coming from the

I like to see people get. what they

Whether it be trouble,happiness,
love, goodness,
Or vice and dollars.
And they generally do.
I guess they all get what they
deserve.
Bulldogs do.
By the way, speaking of matrimonial things,
And this seems to be the all-
absorbing topic just now
Among our young and old men

New Denver has lots of boys yet
on the market.
Who are waiting to be ensnared.
And if any of my bulldog friends

He would make an ideal husband.

Jack Aylwin is another hotel

Into a frisky, smiling, happy lot

Thoy are not all getting married.

Some marry to get husliands.

Pap McRae is temporarily opposed to matrimony, but an opposition like his will melt in the sunshine of love like a snowball in
Texas.
And Pap is good from the ground

Ed Angrignon is another boy
what smells good.
Dogs and girls are strong on

tonsorial parlor and lie by the
stove.
It somehow awakens a feeling of
heavenly ease and rose beds with
coverlets of violets and honeysuckle

Nice catch, eh, girls?
These are only a few of the catch-
ables.
If me and my kennel are not attacked for having mentioned them,
will tell you of others.
If the editor stays away long

I'd like to see these goods off the

Before they become shop worn.

FATHER   RODE   TIIE   GOAT.
The house is full of arnica
And mystery profound;
'■'   We do not dare to run about,
v Or make the slightest sound;
v,      We leave the big piano shut
,'   j       And do not strike a note;
*   ^     The doctor's been here seven times
Sincn father rode the tfoat.
He joined the lodge a week ago,
Got in at 4 a. m ,
And sixteen brethren brought him home,
Though he says he brought them;
His wrist was sprained, and one big rip
Had, rent his Sunday coat;
There must have been a lively time
When father rode the goat."
He's resting on the couch today
And practicing his signs—
The hailing signal, working grip,
And other monkey shines;
He mutters passwords 'neath his breath
And other things he'll auote;
They surely had an evening's work
When father i ode the goat.
Ho has a gorgeous uniform,
All gold and red and blue,
A hat with plumes and yellow braid
And golden badges, too;
But, somehow, when we mention it,
He wears a look so ffriro,
We wonder if he rode the goat
;Or if the goat rode him.

It is a great and beautiful  thing
to be patient if wrongfully accused;
to be so   strongly   girded 'round
with right that you can meet slander by silence, and calumny with a
sniils?.    There is no such thing as
"righteous indignation"—the term
has an apologetic touch and was
coined by some pious pedant whose
temper often ran with him a-muck.
I have seen Pentecost placed iu
positions where an   average  man
would simply have boiled over, but
Hughie was  absolutely  unruffled
inside and out.    He   doesn't play
the devil's tattoo,  sneeze,  cough,
rock, jig, twitch, amble, mince or
monkey with his watch chain.    He
can relax and keep quiet, no matter
how great the din.

desire. AVhen we speak of a person
with a strong will, we mean that
the said person has a strong desire.
It is easy to will to do what we wish
to do. The desire to eat goes before the movement of the body towards food. We will to eat because
we wish to eat.
VII. There can be but one. Desire, viz.: The Desire to be Happy.
—In this we are not free agents.
It is impossible to wish to be miserable. There is no one word that
describes the single desire of the.
universe. Happiness is a good
word if we give it a large meaning,
including pleasure, comfort, peace
of mind, blessedness. It is impossible to wish for anything but
happiness,or to will to do anything
except to promote our happiness,in
the large sense here spoken of.
VIII. Once understand that our
only motive is the Desire for Hap-
piness,and Life becomes a Pleasure.
—The slavery called Duty is over,
and we arise into the glorious freedom of doing whatever we do because it is a pleasure. The only
reason why anyone does his "duty"
is because it is a pleasure, but if
we take our pleasure from a "sense
of duty" we are slaves, whereas if
we do our '-duty" because we enjoy

Supernaturalism is an utter absurdity; it is an impossibility, it is
wholly an assumption, it is an imposition, it is a tyranny, it is an
enemy, it is a constant and perpetual lie. Nothing has done so much
harm in the world as an acceptance
of the supernatural. Supernaturalism is the doctrine of Gods and

wretchedness and lies; but nature

never explain to one who does not
already know, and since words are
never a vindication, silence, when
ballasted by soul, is effective beyond speech.
Pentecost is just a plain healthy
man, who has secured freedom by
holding fast to the truth (until it
has become a habit of mind) that
there in no devil but fear, and the
Reality (God) is on hia side.
This man has gotten so good a
hold upon Truth that he can, to a
degree, live it. And so I prize as
especially valuable the following
statement concerning the Basic
Elements of Truth, as it seems to
Mr. Pentecost:
I All is One.—There is but one
Reality. Matter, Mind, Spirit,
thoughts, things are but manifestations of the one Reality. What
the Keality is no one knows. Wu
know only forms, appearances.
Matter exists,Mind exists, but only
as expressions ofthe one Keality.
II. All is (Sooil.—All things
work together for good. Some
things are better than others, but
all   things  are  good.     Sickness,
it, we are free.
IX. Without Freedom and the
Sense of Freedom Life is a Drudgery.—As a matter of fact every one
not physically confined is free to do
exactly as he pleases all the time,
but few realize this, and consequently live in the sense of slavery,
which is a kind of death.
X. The one motive is the Desire for Happiness, but Permanent
Happiness is only Possible by living
for Others.—It is better to give
than to receive. It is said of Jesus
that "for joy that was set before
Him He endured the cross.'' The
only permanent joy is found in the
crossr—To-live-for others is a-purely
selfish performance. As soon as
we discover how happy service for
others makes us, we become what
is called •'unselfish," but there is,
as a matter of fact, no unselfish-1
ness. Numbers of people become1
selfrighteous or make themselves
miserable because they do not know
that their "unselfishness" is purely
selfish. When I know that I do a
"heroic" thing because I want to,
I don't care to be praised for it.
XI. Courage is the Condition
of Success.—Courage conies from a
profound belief in the first five
doctrines here laid down. No one
can do lushest who is timid—afraid
of his outside and of his inside; of
his environment and oi* himself.
XII. Physical Health is Promoted by Healthful and Happy
Thinking.—As a general proposition the body is an expression of
the mind. If the mind is healthy
the Inidy will be healthy. As a
man Miinketh in his heart ho is he.

The Slocau Drill has called England's    greatest   economic   writer
down in bad   shape,    This is the
way   it   does it:    "That eminent
English fathead, W. T. Stead, says
the ultimate destiny of Canada is
complete absorption by the United
States.   Froth-spouters of the Stead
kidney have been  saying that for
years, but there is no sign of the
absorption taking place.    If there
is any such business to be done, it
will be by the Canucks taking the
States into fold.    Johnny Canuck
once took hold of   the   Michigan
peninsula and a large portion of the
New England states,  but had to
relinquish them for Imperial reasons.    It   will   be   different  next
time.''    There is no doubt that W.
T. Stead will quit his "froth-spouting" after this, and hereafter will
write things more to the liking of
the Drill, and its  blind  following.
But whether he does or doesn't the
fact remains that Canada is not being absorbed by the United States,
because the Drill says so.    On the
contrary, Canada is absorbing the
United States.    Of course she is.
Canada is playing to the heart of
Uncle Sam and also to his pocket.
Canada is a coy miss.    She is giving him free use of everything that
is her's, and he, like a silly old fool
is being taken  in.    But there are
absolutely no signs of Canada being
absorbed.    Of course not.    She is
giving away her iron mines, timber
lands, lead mines, coal mines, silver
mines, gold mines, just to "absorb"
her silly old Uncle* Samuel.    Her
great trunk railroads  are  in   the
control of his   railroad   magnates;
he pockets the profits from all her
mineral and timber resources and
carries the boodle to his little cities
across the line.    He takes her best
sons away from   her  and   adopts
them as his own, and all   to   help
her in the absorption process.   Poor
coal company is not ready to fill
their outside orders, aud the Canadian Pacific will not furnish cars
for outside orders until their own
orders have been filled. Under
these conditions the coal company
is powerless. This company has
had an order for 40 cars of coal a
day, but the same has been shut
off.
' 'I do not think we can depend
upon any relief until we get our
own line completed into the coal
fields, which, I regret to say, however, will not be in time for this
winter's business, as we do not
expect to haue the line completed
before May next.

FOR WAR PURPOSES.
A five-year contract has been
entered into between the Canadian
Pacific Railway and the British
government for the transfer of
troops by the Pacific route to the
Far East. The test recently made
for the carrying of troops by the
Empress resulted so satisfactory to
the government that the long contract has been entered into.
The railway will he used for the
conveyance of mails, troops and
stores monthly between Halifax,
Quebec or Montreal and Hong
Kong, for the annual subsidy of
£60,000, of which the Dominion
contributes £15,000. The most
interesting stipulation is that, the
vessels of the company are liable to
war service, the company agreeing
to construct all its mail steamers
under admiralityj supervision, providing gun platforms and otherwise
fitting them out so that they may
be used as armored cruisers or
troop-ships. Similar
have already been concluded with
the great transatlantic and Oriental shipping corporations, replacing
old agreements. The government
thereby obtains pre-emption of 18
of the largest and swiftest steamships, while thirty others are available for emergency,   without fur-

Now let the Eagle ask you a fair
question :    As    a  business   man,
would you really expect the editor
of this or any other paper to give
you the  information   you   ask for
without money aud without price ?
No man has any   right to give his
opinion of a property unlesn he has
some knowledge of the conditions
which go to make up the probability of the existence of an ore body,
and he   must  certainly   visit the
property and go over it thoroughly
before placing his opinion on record.    This we cannot do; it is out
of our line of business.    But if you
want a report on a property in this
camp when the snow is off we will
contracts^ be pleased to forward you the card
of some reliable mining man who
can be depended upon   to tell you
what he believes  to be  the truth.
And even this pointer is  of more
value than you might think for—

she might mother a million or two

If these go over, too, there will be
at least 5,000,000 with Uncle Sam
when the year 2000 begins, who,
with our 20 or 25 millions at home,
ought to bo able to absorb Uncle
Sam and his 100 or 150 millions
without any difficulty whatever.
Absorbing Canada? Not much!
Not if Canada knows herself, and

The C. P. R. seems to be gobbling up enough of the Crow's Nest
coal output so that the Great Northern is not able to got enough to
furnish its customers, who are
anxious bo purchase coal. It is reported, however, that the (Jrcat
Northern is getting a supply for the

ANOTHER EDITOR'S OPINION.
There is scarcely a mail-day
passes in Ferguson but what letters
from different parts of United
States and Ontario are received by
the editor of the Eagle, asking for
all kinds of information concerning this or that mining company or
property. The subscribers apparently want cheap information, for
no mention of remuneration is
made. What the editor of the
Eagle has to say of any company
mining property is published from
week to week in tho columns.
The subscription price of this paper
is 82.00 per year. The editor is
not, nor does he pose as, a inining
expert; hence, were ho to go into
the cheapest business on earth—
that of giving gratis advice—he
might make grave errors and injure
what might be a good speculation
in the end. At any rate his -'private" opinion is not on tin; market. The Eagle may say this,
though, that the time to enquire
but, it is claimed, is deprived of jof tho v»luft of» •** or ProPorty
the use of much of it, as the Can-11?."01 after Vm »»ve purchwedjt
