Eleventh  Year
PROSPECTS IN
THE SLOCAN
The Mining Industry Decidedly Quiet In the Sandon Gamp.
A Property Closes Down and
Another Takes  Its
Place.
No center in the Kootenays has felt
the effect cf the slump in silver lead
values and the other increased charges
on this branch of the mining industry
more seriously than the Sandon camp.
The mines of the camp aie essentially
silver-lead producers and their product .now has to run the gauntlet of
reduced prices for lead on one hand
and of increased charges for treatment
on the other. The action of the government- with regard to subsidizing
refined lead is being watched with
keen interest, the general feeling
bjing that the establishment of a
Canadian refinery would very materially ljelr matters.
Mining matters are practically at a
standstill just now nnd although the
prospil-ts are that the closing of the
mines is only temporary, some anxiety is felt regarding the outlook providing; tlie government fails the mining industry of II. C.
T��wi more of the mines shut down
last week, and more may follow. On
Fridaj? the Ivanhoe closed down permanently owing to the depreciation in
the prices for its product. About the
same time the Last Chance laid off
half its force, ostensibly for the same
reason.
The Payne mine is doing development work at the present time principally, not having made any shipments for a month and is employing
abont- forty men. The Star is running night and day employing one
hundred and twenty men. The Amer
loan Boy is working full blast witli
forty hien, while the Noble J ive is
managing with seven men. The War
Horse which was shut down In February may resume any time during
the nest few weeks. At the present
time If. 11. Alexander is away in
the old country, but he is expected
back in the immediate future when it
is hoped thnt operations will be resumed,.
W.- m. Warner has taken a lease of
the Wonderful win :h has been lying
Idle for a long time. It will commence shipping as soon as the roads
are in good condition.
The,Sunset at Jackson Ilasin shipped Si; tons from Whitewater last
week,' It has shipped 10 cars of ore'
during the winter amounting to .12!,
tons. The returns brought from 81,-
500 to $3,000 a car.
Two hundred feet'of tunnelling has
been.done on the Hazel' at Whitewater BO far this year, and 150 feet is
still to be driven before the contract
is finished. It is expected that the
vein will be tapped below tho upper
workings. The St. Keveme Mining
company has been reorganized and
capital provided for extensive development of this young Sandon property. At a iecent general meeting of
the company its property was sold to
the St. Keverne Mines, Limited, a
company incorporated under the'1-iws
of Hritish Columbia, with headquarters at Montreal and,organized by S.
Norman. The capital of the new
company is in 100,000 $1 shares and
the stock l�� assessable to five cents
per share. An assessment of ono cent
Is to.be levied shouly,giving working
capital for immediate resumption of
work. Within the paBt few-years tbe
stock of., the old company has been
gradually absorbed by a Montreal syndicate. The control is held in Montreal and Ontario. The chief western
stockholder being John A.Finch, president of the old company. Stockholders in the old company will receive
one share in the new for 10 in the
old, or they will receive three cents
per [share in cash by turning their
stock in. This offer expires June
1st, but the officers will ask for an
Immediate response. The old company, which will be disincorporated,
was organized by Sidney Norman in
1897, with its capital in 1,0011,000 $1
���hares, Of this 300,000 was placed in
the treasury, sold and the proceeds
epent on the property.
Notwithstanding     the    depression
business men are hopeful,and in spite
of the severe strain put upon their
resources durl n "" ���**! few
mouths, they ""Vinci.1 _j ���,-,_
without nny failures. There ,. ._-.
ore in the tunnels than in any previous period of the camp and although
only 500 men are now in actual employment such is their confidence in
the future of that enterprising mining centre that thay are consoled by
the belief that Sandon, considering
its numerous and serious set backs is
still in the ring, and can hold its
own with any camp In R. C.
The following are the shipments for
the week ending May 4: Reco mine,
05 tons; Ivanhoe, 60; American Hoy,
43; Last Chance, 20. Total,   187   tons

(SPECIAL TO THE Minim.)

THE PEOPLE MUST DECIDE
MANITOBA M. P.'S DEMAND THAT
RAILWAY    BILL   HE   SENT TO
ELECTORATE.
SIR     WILFRID     LAURIER     SAYS
ONE    SECTION     OF     ALASKA
BOUNDARY IS IN DOUBT.
(SPECIAL TO THE MINER.)
Ottawa, May 0 ���Capt. Edouard
Charles l'aradis of the 58th batt. has
been appointed inspector of the
mounted police.
The Manitoba railway bills discussion begun in the liouse today when
Puttee moved, seconded by Richardson, that in the opinion of the house
the bill should not be passed until tbe
subject nf the proposed legislation
has been'submitted by direct reference
to the electors of Manitoba in order
that their wish in respect to the same
may be ascertained. Puttee and Richardson spoke at length on   the  bill.
Before the orders of the day were
called Col. Prior called attention to a
letter he had received from Mr. Hegg
of Victoria, with respect to the marking of the Alaska boundary on a large
map of Canada exhibited at the Pans
fair. Mr. Begg's letter held that ihe
boundary in tho vicinity of Clarence
channel was marked as claimed by
the Americans. Col. Prior remarked
that whatever, boundary was described it should be marked provisional.
The premier replied there vias no provisional line. The only provisional
line that was agreed to was that
around the Lynn oanal.
BRIGHT   PROSPECT.
Nelson Business Man Says Lardo People Are Hopeful.
The bright prospect ahead of the Lardo district are confirmed daily. The
latest evidence on the point is by-
Percy Chapman, manager of A. Macdonald A Co.'a wholesale grbcery concern, nnd a live local business man.
Ueforir.ig to the subject Mr. Chapman said last night:
"1 have just returned from a very
successful business trip through the
Lardo conntry, having visited the
town of Ferguson, Trout Lake and
Camborne calling at other towns en
route. I consider the prospects of that
section very bright and the construe-
tin of the Lardo railroad to Selkirk
means a great deal for the wholesale
commercial interests of Nelson.
"The principal shipping mines at
present aro the Nettie L., Silver Cup
and Triune nnd re lent smelter returns
give to the latter property a profit of
close upon 8.00 per tun. The open -
ing up of transpoi-tatiou facilities
will give tbe mining men a better
opportunity of showing that the Lardo has to send to the smelters.
"On visiting the different towns
I have been shown very valuable
specimens of oie and took the opportunity to intimate that the Nelson
board of trade would like to have samples to add to its collections here.
To this request the parties spoken to
seemed only too willing to acquiesce
and will furnish Nelson with samples
that will command attention. I
consider the prospects of Ferguson,
Trout Lake and the Camborne country
extremely bright and the prosperity
of these districts means the commercial prosperity of Nelson."
City Council by Two Majority
Put Embargo on Sunday Sports.
Lively Opposition to the Motion and Tramway Influence Hinted at.
No Sunday ball games will be per-
itted at the recreation grounds in future. At last night's meeting of the
city eounoil a resolution was carried
forbidding the use of the grounds for
games on Sunday and the resolution
goes on record. Whether or not the
council has the power to enforce the
rule is open to question as the title
to the land is not vested in the corporation, but it gave rise to a lively discussion in which several points of
more than ordinary interest were
evolved.
A'dermen Hamilton and Irving moved that the recreation grounds be
closed against ball games and other
.ports on Sunday.
In moving the motion Aldevman
'Hamilton described it as a matter of
great annoyance _o many of the Nelson citizens that sports such as were
held in Nelson on Sunday last should
be held and permitted in the very
heart of the eity and suggested that if
it were necessary that the sporting
element of Nelson should thus indulge
that they should be compelled to move
to the park where there was ample
room for sports of all kinds, without
being a source of annoyance to people
who desired a quiet Sunday and who
prefered then- children should not
have these temptations to remain
away from Sunday [school, and thus
lead to further Sabbath  breaking.
The motion was supported by Alderman Irving who spoke in a similai
strain, and thought that if the city
fathers possessed power in this direction that it Bhould be exercised. He
was not desirous of shutting off the
liberties of the men who wanted to
enjoy sport on Sunday, but thought
that it should not be allowed as an
annoyance to the people of the city.
Aid. Selous was utterly opposed '.o
the spirit and scope of the motion and
argued in favor of all the healthy foot
ball, baseball and cricket games that
the young men of the city had a mind
to go in for. The argument of annoyance was, he claimed, only an excuse to compel people to keep Sunday
on lines laid down by one particular
element. As far as annoyance to ii-e
public waB concerned, he claimed that
the ringing of the Methodist church
bell and the cracked jangling of the
Presbyterian bell was as much an annoyance to another section of the
community, and he claimed th t in
common charity, the supporters o the
motion ought to look nt the question
from both sides. He was of opinion
that if they stopped the ball games
on Sunday it would only result in
driving the young men who indulged
in them Into amusements that were
not so innocent or healthy, and one
thing wns certain that if they succeeded in stopping the sports.it would
not have the effect of getting young
men to Sunday school.
Aid. Irving asked if children were
not better in Sunday school than attending a footabll match on Sunday
afternoon.
The mayor laid tho eity had no
power to stop games on the recreation
ground as part of the grounds was
leased by the football club and part
of it was private property.
Aid. Gillett asked if there is not a
law to prevent Sunday labor and
sport.
The mayor replied that iu Boston,
one of the cleanest and best c'ties in
the States, they allowed everything of
this nature in their public parks.
Aid. Gillett-"But the parks are
outside the city limits."
The Mayor���"But they ar surrounded   by residences."
Aid. Gillett���"But not surrounded
by churches "
The Mayor���-"Yes, the churches are.
so near that I could stand in the park
and throw a stone into a church
yard."
The mayor in further discussing
the matter stated that there was far
more noise from hotels, people travelling and   other   forms of  disturbance]
and claimed that the motion was one
of pure sentiment. So far as he was
concerned he could see no difference
from tho moral standpoint between
playing ball on Sunday In the recreation ground or at the park and indulging in the same Bport on nny other
day.
Aid. Irving asked a question in regard to the authority of the council in
prohibiting games on thestreet.
Aid.Madden thought that they could
prosccut'; a man for working on Sunday.
Aid. .Selous claimed they could prosecute a man for working In his garden. But it was the old question of
the Lord's Day Alliance gettting in
the thin end of the wedge, the minority trying to coerce the majority.
, The mayor claimed that the argument of noise was only an excuse.
Aid. Irving���"Ours is not a wide
open town I"
Aid. Madden���"It ought to bo!"
The mayor claimed that the noise
arising from the churches and Sunday
schools, the screeehing of organs, and
singing of children was much more of
an annoyance in his immediat" neighborhood than any ball game on the
recreation ground ever was. In regard
to the matter of controlling the recrea
tion ground for Sunday sports, he
claimed that while they had power as
on several otner matters, it was not
always wise to exercise it and he did
not believe in being narrow.
The motion was then put, "That the
use of the recreation grounds be not
allowed on Sunday." It was carried
by a majority of two. The mayor
then asked that the votes be recordad,
which was as follows: Ayes: Aldermen Hamilton, Irving, (iillett and
Paterson; nays: Mayor Fletcher,
Aldermen Selous and Madden.
, On the announcement of the resnlt
the niayoi declared himself as not
believing in the motion, and thought
they had made a mistake in attempting to pass it. As a subsequent stage
of the meeting the mayor said they
ought now to bring in a resolution to
stop street cars from running on a
Sunday, as it was always a source of
great annoyance, especially' to sick
people on Stanley street and the hospital. It was only natural and reasonable, and thought that at a subsequent meeting some one should bring
in a motion along the lines suggested
by tin, passing of the motion, as the
passing of it was obviously a scheme
to help the street car company to increase their trallic to the park.
A romumnication was read from A.
Ifindes regarding the purchase of the
city stables. On motion of Aldermen
Gillett and Irving the city clerk
was authorized to tender the amount
of 825 to Mr. 11 imien aud that a cheque
be drawn for that amount.
A communication was a'so read
from E. R. Woakes and others regarding the state of the road near his
house where the thoroughfare was
being used as a dumping ground. The
matter was referred to the mayor.
A petition was presented from D. A.
McDonald and others petitioning for
a sidewalk on the south side of Latimer street, to connect with Josephine
which was referred to the board of
works.
The cemetery bylaw No. 09, was
given a seven days' hoist.
Aid. Paterson drew attention to
the condition of the sidewalk In front
of LaPointe's boarding house, where
it was so dangerous that two men
had fallen over a drop of six feet, and
suggested .that it and the dangerous
condition of tho sidewalk near the
Athabasca saloon on Kootenay street
should receive tho attention of the
board of works.
The counil adjourned lo meet on
Wednesday next at 12 o'clock noon.
FALSE ALARM���
The fire brigade had a false alarm
yesterday about 4 o'clock and prompt.
ly responded. As soon as tho excitement had subsided thoy returned to
their quarters.
SWALLOWED   THE BILL.
J. C. Brown Accepts the Government's
Railroad  Ilill.
(SPECIAL TO THE MINER.)
Victoria, May 0.���Tonight ,T. C.
Brown came out in a speech accepting
the government railway policy. He
said he found on coming down to the
session that the premier took such
an advanced stand for the people as
opposed to companies that he felt he
would not be justified In factious opposition. Although holding still that
government ownership was the correct solution, yet he found the bill
embodied the contiol of rates and a
per centage of earnings, etc., nnd he
accepted it on the principle that half
aloaf Is better than no bread. He
knew no per cent, of his constitutcnts
would back him np In it.
ON TBIAL
FOE MURDER
J. F. M. DesRevieres Will Be
Placed on Trial Here
Today.
It
is Alleged He Murdered
Harry Rowand Last
February.
James F. MeGili des Rivieres will
be put on his trial for murder at the
courthouse here today. The case for
the crown is that on February 10
last, des Rivieres stabbed one Harry
Rowand in such a manner that the
latter died almost instantly from his
woun'l.
The alleged murder was committed
in a shack on the Denoro townsite
about 12 miles from Greenwood. The
murdered man was a former employee
of the C. P. R. and up to a couple of
weeks prior to the killing worked at
the B. C. mine. The prisoner ifl a man
of about 40 years of age. By profession he is a civil engineer and worked
for the C.P.R. in this capacity during
the construction of the Crow's Nest
road. He Is married and has a wife
in Ottawa. At Denoro des Revieres
was dubbed "Frenehy" and as he is
not of robust build was the butt of
numerous practical jokes, sometimes
it is said, being roughly handled. On
the night of the killing Rowand was
brought to " Frenehy V shack by
Jones and introduced to des Revieres.
The three had liquor. In his story of
the night's events Jones says that he
turned In leaving des Revieres and
Rowand sitting up. Rowand, lie
says, became boisterous and abused
"Frenehy" attempting to choke the
latter. Finally Rowand tried to hold
des Revieres over a hot stove and the
.Frenchman drew a clasp knife. With
this weapon des Revieres stabbed
Rowand twice, the latter dying within a few minutes.
An officer from Greenwood went to
Denoro and arrested des Revieres. The
prisoner did not attempt to get away
and on being taken into custody admitted killing Rowand but declared
that the killing was done in self defence, a statement to whicli he has
olung ever since. After a preliminary
hearing before a magistrate des
Revieres was committed to jail here to
;await trial. The case will bo called
this morning when court opens before
Mr. Justice Drake. The grand jury
will be charged with the task of determining whether the crown has
sufficient evidence to put the prisoner
on his trinl, and in event of an affirmative answer, the case will proceed
before a petit jury. It is not likely
that the trial proper will be started
beforo tomorrow.
The only other criminal case to be
taken np is that of Bell charged with
Btealing a horse. The cases agaiust
Medhurst and Mansfield, charged witli
conspiring to defrnud the C. P. R.
have been arranged. In view of the
shortened criminal docket,Mr. Justice
Drake has announced that he will
take np clvil'cuses on Monday morning. Three new civil actions have
been set down for trial. These are.
War Eagle vs. Turner, arising out of
a water records awaid by John A.
Turner i Cordingly vs.Queen nnd Cordingly vb. Union, the lnttei being actions to recover Insurance.

(.SPECIAL TO THE .IINKIl.)
Vancouver, B. C, May C���The
most interesting evidence before the
Chinese commission today was that of
R. Marpole, general superintendent of
the C. P. R. Pacific division. Mr.
Marpole said that out of nearly 4,000
employees only OU Japs and TO Chinese were employed by him and he
would not employ these Mongols if
he could get whites to do the work
thoy were doing on tho Columbia river and other places.
He said that the traffic with Japan
was i net casing enormously and more
steamships would be added to thc licet
and he thought further restriction
would affect it.
In speaking of the Great Northern
railway he said that company employ
ed thousands of Orientals and were
advertising foi a,000 more. Other
lines witli termini on the Pacific also
engaged thousands of Mongols.
A HOT   RECEPTION.
When Editor   Lower;   Returned Two
Houses Burned Down.
(SPECIAL, TO THE MINER.)
New Denver, May li.���That famous
journalist and friend of preachers, It.
T. Lowery, the well known editor of
the New Denver Ledge, returned to
New Denver on Saturday last, after
being absent from his sanctum sane
tnruin for three weeks. During bis
absence he has visited the "cent belt"
in Ontaiio, and although naturally
glad of an opportunity to visit the
land of his nativity he is equally glad
to return to his constituency in the
"Lucerne of Ameiica" where he
moulds and fashions according to hit-
will and humor the theological opinions of his neighbors and friends. It
was reported that he had gone east tn
bring hack to B. C, a partner, but as
he returned alone, that evidently Is a
cauni-d. And it Is not true Hint he
has brought hack with hi in either a
smelter or a iellnery. On his leturh
he visited for three Jor four. days. In
Suu't ste Mario, where the big Canadian iron works are to be established;
and which is destined to become a
great industrial centre. Dining the
last twelve months its population has
doubled.
While in thc east Mr. Lowery purchased plant and completed' pia'tis foi
the publication , of a sixteen-page
monthly periodical from his office
here, to be cnllcd "Lowery's Claim."
It will be an up to date western
blazer, and will represent tbe "higher
criticism" along every lino of
thought. The first number will appear in May or June.
In celebration of the Ledge editor's
home coming some one got up a grand
pyrotechnic display. In the form of a
tire, whereby the residences of Mr.
Mclnnes, mining recorder, and Mr.
(.'lark weie burnt to the ground with
all their furniture.
No clue has been found as to the or

Mr. Justice Irving has handed down
hie judgment in the action of Marino vs. Alexander et al, a suit arising out of the working of the Marion
mine in the New Denver camp. The
judgment goes into the evidence subtile ease somewhat voluminously occupying sixty
typewritten folios. Judge Irving
gives the plaintiff a verdict for 8500
each as agalnBt the other members of
the partnership and rules that he
is entitled tc remuneration for hie
services as superintendent of the work
at the property at the rato of 85 per
day. An accounting ot the affairs of
the partnership is further ordered.
Ib the course of the trial some facts
were elicited in connection with the
bonding of thc Marion which caused
considerable comment about tbe courthouse. Touching these Mr. Justice
Irving says:
"In June 18(10 Sproat hy putting
In a few shots was able to expose to
view some very good ore with the result tha�� an offer was made by King
_j Co. to pun base the propeerty. A
bund for the sale of the property at
815,000 was signed by tbe tmee, Ma.
rino, Sproat and Mclnuis and afterward by Alexander. A second document or letter was given by. Messrs.
King A Co. behind Alexander's back
lo Messrs. Marino, Sproat and Mclnnes, by which these three gentlemen
Were to be paid for their three-quarter
interest on a 8M,000 basis. The story
of tills arrangement has been told in
different ways, hut I accept Marino's
account as the true account. This
means of hoodwinking one's eoiQwn-
ers is, apparently nol uncommon with
a certain class of miners. It had been
practiced or attempted between these
three parties before and- I, see the
same strategeni was adopted in Hissoll
vs. Fass, 114 U. S.
As to the credibility of the witnesses, Mr.-Justice Irving says: "I was
disposed at the trial to attach more
weight to what Marino said than to
the statements of Sproat and Mclnnes
and I accept Marino's statement as to
the custody and disappearance of the
partnership books in preference to
Sproat's.
"I have already drawn Attention to
what Mrs. Mclnnes said vi.., that
those operations were carried on'
against the wishes of herself or rather
her agent. Mclnnes was not unwilling, on tho contrary he was actively
assisting. His only concern was the
fear that the mine might run into
debt and in outer to save himself lie
threatened to put a notice up protecting himself, I presume under section
7 of the mechanic's lien act. At least
thut Is what he says, but as a matter of fact he permitted tbe expenditure to go. contented with making
complaints. 1 think Mclnnes, the
husband, ought to be held icsponsible
for her incorrect statement.
"Sproat says thut aliout Nov
was dissatisfied on two grounds.
These grounds arc inconsistent
ihe stand he is now taking.
"Ah to Hie trick played on Alexander, I tliink, ns between Hproati
Mclnnes aud Marino the 'honors'
might be said to Im 'easy.' Marino
candidly admits lie was a party to a
dishonorable act to whieh Sproat and
Mclnnes were parties. They deny- it
but the evidence speaks for itself."

It Is easy to understand why one
chamber in the Austarlian commonwealth is in favor of protection while
the other is in favor of a revenue tariff. In the Australian senate all the
states, large and small, have the same
representation. In the other chamber
the states ate represented according to
p ipulation, as they arc in Canada.
It happens that the majority of the
smaller states are opposed to a high
tariff. In the chamber where they
have equal representation with the
more populous states the majority is
anti-protectioni6t But the chamber
in which the people are proportionately represented has a protectionist ma-
iority. It is not easy to forsee the result. The constitution does not provide for a joint session until other
methods of adjustment are exhausted.
Tariff measures must be introduced
in thc house of representatives. If a
protective tariff measure should pass
the representatives and be rejected by
the senate, the first chamber could
send it up again to the senate after
three months. If a second rejection
should take place, both houses would
be dissolved. Should the new senate
reject the same measure as presented
by the neiv house,the two bodies meet
in joint session. Then the majority
of the joint assembly prevails.

AFRIKANDER       AGITATION      IN
ENGLAND.
t Mr. Merrlmau and Air. Saner, two
indefatigable liars formerly of the
Cttpe Colony government, have been
addressing the English liberals repeating the old charges of brutality
and indecent conduct against the British civil and militaiy authorities in
Africa. Thc people of England know
the character of their brothers in
arms too well to accept these statements. If any proof were needed that
the British authorities are at least as
lenient as they ought to be, It is
found in the freedom of these agitators, who have been openly and secretly encouraging revolt in the Colony,
and are among those most responsible
for the persistance of the Boers in
their resistance. Britain is probably
the only nation in the world which
would allow a man to go at large who
has conducted himself like Saner.
DeWet would shoot on sight a sworn
subject of his country who would do
half as much as Merriman or Saucr to
encourage aud assist the enemy. Yet
it Is a good thing that the Afrikanders are in England. The government
which is suppreslng this rebellion
needed a new impulse. It will come
in the public indignution over thc
slander.

CAM 10 HACK HOME���
Charles Munioe and A. Mowalt,
who arc among the pioneer locuters
on Wllttleback mountain made an
effort to reach their claims recently.
Wbalnbuck is 11 miles east of Nelson
and is reached via the east fork of
Cottonwood creek. The prospectors
made the trip out in four days,
doubling to get in two heavy pucks.
Tlie snow was so deep that the men
could not find their stakes and then
Miinroe was attacked with snow
blindness. Next day the two came
home and will not attempt the trip
until the 20th instant.

HRIDGE AFIRE-
The Slocan train was detained j'es
teniav, among other reasons, by n fire
at bridge No. M, about five miles out
of Nelson. A torpedo had been placed
mi the track and the train was
brought to a standstill on the Nelson
end of the bridge when it was discovered that owing to a small bush fire
on the north side of the track, the
bridge was ablaze In two or three
places, 1'orutnately the application
of a little water prevented any further
damage. It was then discovered that
one of tho telegraph posts was nliuos>j

CUT IT DOWN���
One of the items under discussion at
the meeting of the city council waB'
the rate of wages which should be
paid for a city nurse. Mrs. Forbes
put In u bill for 8,r) per day for hor
services in the detention hospital,
winch. In addition to her board, ia
according to the opinion-of some, a
handsome remuneration, A difference
of opinion existed, however, on the
mutter ns it was argued that it was
customary in V.ancoUver oi��d: other
large Centers to remunerate nurses attending contagious eases at a high'
figure. The majority, however;
agreed that the amount of the account
sent in wns too large to be put,I in
full w'thout further investigation,
and the account was panned-by agree*
ing to pay $7.r> on accoii-t, pending
inquiry.
