The Approaching Advent of the Two  Railways Has Roused the Whole  District Into Renewed Life and Business Activity���������The Long Lane of the  Lardeau Pioneer Has Taken a Turn  for Prosperity at Last.  A vis.it ul. (he  present  lime  lo  the  rich mineral district of the  Lard, an,  of which Ferguson is t.h("   cenlre.   will  considerably deepen  the  visitor's impression   of     Ihe     great  possihilities  possessed by that district in  the  way  of Miming  and   lumbering  industries,  the former of which is of course, paramount.     The  prospect of the immediate   founei-lion   of    this   promising  section of Koolenny with th" outside  world hy the construction  01  liranch  lines of hoth I he Great Northern  and  Canadian Pacific railways  ha."  roused  thn   whole   camp   into   activity,   evidences of whiih arc patent on  every  side.    A Hf.hat.tj representative  paid  ,1 visit to Ferguson  during the  early  part of this week  anil  was  hoth surprised and encouraged hy the appearance of business activity   and  bustle  visihle and wilh  the  immense  confidence and   faith  in  the   country   displayed hy thu pioneers of lhe district  including not only the prospectors und  mine owners, but also the  merchants,  hotelinen.     freighters     and     others.  Everyhody is full  of husiness. and  i.s  going iihout it with an air of jubilant,  certainty that the long dull days of  " hope deferred " are over at last and  that the wheel of fortune hiis  taken a  turn fur prosperity.    And  if anyone  deserves   a   turn   of   success  il- is the  L-irde.an pioneer, who  for the lust few  veiirs   has   stayed   with   the   district  for Egood   or   evil   and knowing   his  own-   district   presented   indications  of    even     gi eater     mineral     resources    of    every    possible " kind*   than  any other part of Kootenay.  has yet  heen compelled for so lorn? to stand by  and   see, other   camps   develop from  mere prospects into  woild renowned  uiining   centres, .while   thelLiii'deiui.  owing to its  inaccessibility,   failed   to  attract' the" fn voting  shower   of the  golden   rain  .of capital. ./Which    was  forcing  its neighboring camps along  into prominence and prosperity.   But  all this has now begun' tii change with  the approaching  advent of-the  iron  horse.     Already' representatives   of  inining    companies     and    syndicates  from the old world centres of finance,  London and Faris. und from  different  pints   of   Eastern   Canada   and  .the  United States are to he found   in  the  Lardeau camps, inspecting and reporting on claims  and" negotiating deals  for   mining properties.    Already  the  extraordinary    richness   of   the   Lardeau ores���������for lhe Lardeau is a district  of  higb   grade   propositions,    a.s   has  lieen proved to.the satisfaction  of the  most sceptical by the development of  such mines as the Silver Ciip,Sutishine,  Netlie L, Towser, Badshot and others  ���������is becoming .known far and near and  the   impression" is     steadily   gaining  ground that the town  of Ferguson  is  destined to become to  this great district, what Rossland   is   to   the Trail  creck'caiiip.-  right at the base of ;the Ureal Nm thorn mountain. The track comes up  from the left bank of SUie south fork,  crosses the creek and runs up along  the far side of the gulch before mentioned and lhen turns lound and run-,  under the base of t he Great Northern  mountain. Parlies of men have been  put on lo slash ihe grounds for the  depot, and yard and Ferguson has taken its lirst stride Inward.- becoming  not only a great mining Icanip. which  lhe extraordinary mineral wealth of  immediate vicinity renders corU'in.  hut also the most important railway  and distributing point in the Lardeau.  THE FAMOUS JjETTIE L MINE  Two and a Half Feet  of Solid   Galena  Struck in the Olel Workings.  Last Wednesday u bin strike of a  vein of two and a half feet of pure  solid galena was mnde in the upper  level tunnel of the Nettie L, Work is  still progressing on lbe lower level  tunnel. The. management are putting  up an oie house and expect to make a  shipment of ltlO tons of oie very  shortly.  \444l44HM'UttHe������*4l4M*������*'****i, '���������*  +***������<******************** '<F&******&������*^++**������******  Some people will say,, and, in fact,  are saying���������some people will say  almost unyltiing��������� that .all this talk  about the.Lardeau and ils rich prospects is only moonshine. But the  IIisrald will venture for the sake of  giving the sceptics sotnelhing to talk  about, to assert that within the next  two years the Lardeau will he the  most talked of and best known inining  ciimp in British Columbia, while  Ferguson will be as well known lo the  outside world as is Rossland' today,  which is making a bold assertion, but  still one to which the UlsiiAr.n is  willing to pin its faith. t  ' The future of Ferguson wil! bo intimately bound up with the fortunes of  the Greal, Northern railway, which  has acquired a half interest in the  townsite and intends to make Ferguson :i terminal point and to locate  shops there. During the early part of  the week Robt. Irving, president of  the IC. & S. road, and J. II. Gray, the  chief engineer, were there and laid  "out the whole grounds. These gentlemen were greatly impressed with the  prospects of the place and not less so  wilh the energy and public spirit  evinced by its citizens.  Our representative  was   conducted  over"the grounds reserved for the  IC.  fc S. depot and yard by the genial and  popular townsite agent, Col. Bray Ion.  The spot selected is one of __rre.it natural beauty.    The depot is to  be placed  on a point to tlie  west of the town hetween the north  fork of the   Lardeau  and a gulch, whicli runs down to it  from the base of the   Great Northern  mountain.    From it a splendid view is  obtainable np the Tamous north fork  of the Lardeau and  iu  another direction   up the south  fork  to the Silver  Cup hill.   The depot   will lie directly  under the of the Nettie L. mountain,  now coming into such note from  the  mine, which the Great Western Mines  Ltd. are developing on it.

Kamloops  and Revelstoke are both  self-supporting   and, the    district   meeting   congratulated   Revelstoke    on   attaining  self support.     The   mission at Trout  Lake is looking   up   and   steps ' were  taken   to   secure   adequate    siiperin-  tendencv for it.    Visits will be  made  soon to assist the resident missionary  in planning for the further extension  of the work. "The Twentieth. Century  Fund Scheme was" discussed  and  life  suggestion   of   the   president   of the  conference   in   a. recent  letter   were  adopted.   '  Sermons    and    addresses  will be given on  Sunday,   the  Sth  of  October, and a canvass  will  he  made  of every field in  the district for sub-  sciiptions.  Nearly every church in the  district is more, or less in debt, and it  was remarked that it would be a great  blessing if as  a result of this  appeal  every   church   could   he:   freed    from  debt this conference, year.    An earnest  conversation on the state of the   work  was held and it was resolved  by every  minister present to go in for a  revival  this venr. ,,  The chairman and secretary were  appointed to correspond with Rev.  Goro Kaburangi of "Vancouver with a  view to secure a visit from him in the  interest of the. missionary work.

One piece of evidence is a,1'  note made  out   in   favor   of   Thomas"*.  Foster   for   ������15.       This  has gone  to"  protest at Revelstoke���������no funds.

The head brakeman asked him, in  the language of the caboose, ''what  was eatln' him?" Noah said nothing  and sighed again.  As I went about oiling the-' engine  I heard the fireman telling the brake-  man how she had behaved when Mosley laid off and an extra man had  gone out on the 'leven-four:  "If she'd  do that then.  what'I]  she  do to  'em now:  what'II  she  do with  ? tms  chippy runner?"    The brakeman  shook his head.      ;'. ..'   - 7--  At last, after much firing, the fireman succeeded in getting the engine  (and the engineer) hot," and away., we  went���������three engines and  15  loads for  ���������?:     the foothills.  In the valley the 'leven-four did  fairly well, but the moment we hit  the heavy grade���������217 feet tfj' the mile  she began to cut up. The pointer  on the steam guage began to go back  and back. I shut off the injector to  allow her to "pick up" and when the  water was as low as I could afford  to let it go I tried to put on the  pump again, hut it refused to work.  We tried the left hand lift. It  would start off all right, singing like  a locust, and then break and shoot  the water into the ditch. In the  meantime got the right, hand injectors going again, but when _ 1  tried the water the blue steam hissed  from the gage cocks as dry as a  croupy cough. I began to ease up to  save her crownsheet. and the old runners who were helping me up the hill.  me every time she lost her feet,  though he knew that sho was doing it  ���������that she was only resenting the  abuse  that  t was heaping on her.  In my anxiety to get out on time,  I had forgotten my engine cap, ad  was now wearing a littlo chip of a  debry, which was awkward and out of  place on an engine.  ������   *    *  While dodging in and out of the  cab, wrestling Willi the sand lever  and thc injecto- I struck the point of  mv derby against the cab window  and tt shot down the mountain, leav-  inb me bare headed. I signed to  Noah; he shook his head���������he had  no extra cap. I went iuto the clothes  box and found a little jaunty brown  cap that I had soon Mosley wear, and  that nobody but Mosley would think  of wearing. As I put it on Noah  raised his hand with a look of horror.  Presently the 'leven-four began to  die on us. Noah worked frantically but  to no purpose. Ho would cock his  grates, miss . the " furnace door, and  scatter coal all over his dock.  Fiualv I .signalled him up into the cab  to work uie sand lever nnd went at  the fire myself. But It.-was of no use.  The coal lay black and dead in the  firebox, not a spark came from her  stack, and Mclvor declared afterward  lhat he could not bear? her exhaust,  and he was coupled lo my pilot bar.  Mosley had been a dudish driver,  and jusl aliove the furnace door he  had a bevel edged mirror fastened.  ��������� Suddenly I straightened up, glanced  into the "mirror and saw Mosley as  plain as I had even seen him. wearing  the'"'little brown cap that he had worn  on his  last trip.  Well, it gave mo a start, though I  am not" at alt superstitious. . In a  moment; 1 remembered' thai I was  wearing the cap that had been worn  hv the dead driver, and remarked  for the first time that we had* looked  alike, - had the: same hair, the ,same  small brown moustache, nearly the  samc eyes. '���������?:' The : furnacp hcatv-had  given iiie for the moment the.same  ruddy glow that had. been? his.

of his mates were working there and
if the log had fallen into (lie pit, the'
(���buncos nre that, they would both have
been instantly killed. But. Seeber.
seeing the danger, promptly seized n
cant hook und caught the end of the
log nearest him. Tbe other end
swung round and struck the log on
the cuiTinge us it was returning and
drove it wilh such lighlning rapidity
against hi* "leg. which was braced
against a skid, that it broke inslnnlly.
Seeber is at. present doing well and
does not. seem at all put out over
breaking liis leg. feeling quite sali.-lied

Staking of Claims.
A   correspondent     writing    to  the
Trout Lake Topic of the  12lh  instant,
lias these practical  remarks  to  make
on lhe subject of claim slaking :
Having been recently out in the hills
looking over some claims in this district. I found the utmost difficulty in
finding the stakes. Knowing you are
on tlu; ground yet unable lo locate
either of the posts is about the meanest thing I know of, oftentimes only a
six-year-old blaze lo be seen. This
can often bo seen even to the cutting
out of snow bush or other undergrowth, whilst lust year's staking cannot be found. Why the locator did
not, use old line puzzled me, and if a
new one. why he did not blaze it
puzzled me more. Why isit when the
j a w_cal I s for a .certain marked line
between Nos. 1 and 2 posts Ihe locator
fnils to carry out his part of the contract '? "Yet he swears nr affirms thut
lie has done so. Is the locntora. hanied
of the claim he slakes, or is it done for
privacy of other purposes. Why is if
lie fails to blaze l.li"i line when compelled to do so by the law? If I could
pei-Mimle l.lie government I would
liave them enact a law that all blazes
be. renewed at least once in two years
or the owners pay a line. In this wuy
purlie. hunting for claims on legit i-
iimle lui-iness might find them without wasting many hours of useless
search. which is beyond anything
trying tn the temper und lbe wind.
My advice to all locators is lo iiuike
your blazed line so plain that even u
tenderfoot could not get off it.
All eyes are turned on New  Westminster.    Here the comedy of British
Columbia.polii ies is rapidly developing
into a roaring farce.    Henderson,  thc
new attorney-general, is appealing for
support to the very men, who opposed
him  nt   the   genernl   election of last,
year, while the people whose influence
and  money he  unscrupulously niaile
use of to secure his election at that
time can now hardly lind words strong
enough to stigmatize  the  conduct  of
their banner bearer and hero of little
more   than   twelve   months ago.    At
the same time a third clement appears
on the scene opposing Henderson, the
redoubtable .Toe Martin, who gets all
the credit, good or bad, of having influenced  Henderson's defection   from
the party which elected him  and now
finds. himself   succeeded   in  his own
position   by his  peculiar recruit.    At.
the  same   time  weare told that the
eight-hour clause is to be a-prime issue
in the contest, lhe  government  being
prepared to stake its  existence on the
popularity  ot  the measure  with  the
electors and  yet .Toe Martin, who 'is
also popularly credited with being the
father   of   the   clause, is- tn speak in
support, of   the  opposition  candidate,
who is put up to win by antagonising
it.    It is a (ineer mixture of men and
things and  is  the -'result to which tho
personal  scuffling,   hitherto  dignified
by the name of provincial  politics" in
British ������ Columbia      has     inevitably
brought about.

One thing is certain, however, on
the issue of the election depends the
fate, of llie. Semlin cabinet. If Henderson gets in it may close up the
ranks of the government party sufficiently to allow of their once more
meeting the house, though it is extremely unlikely that - they can
possibly last through another session.
But if their new attorney-general is
defeated, the general debacle will be so
swift that another election* musl
inevitably result at once. For this
reason tlie Heuai.d views with u i-c.r-
tain amount o[ distpiiet the proposed
championship of Mr. Reid's claims by
Mr. Martin. Mr. Martin's calibre in
an election is uo doubt heavy. At the
same lime, since in the event of a
general election the elements now
composing the provincial opposition,
are dead sure to be opposed to him,
the IIerald would prefer to see him
if admitted to the coolest, doing lhe
fighting for his own hand. To use a,
legal phraseology hi.s advocacy of
Mr. Reid's case must he "without
prejudice." As the next election will,
for the limt time in the history of the
province be fought out on definitely
opposing principles, it would be just
