Probable Receipts from Licenses
The Tax on Realty.
A rough estimate of the revenues
wliich will be obtainable by thc city
for the year 1*18, from trade and
liquor licenses, etc., exclusive of
realty is as follows:
Rebate from the government
on taxes collected
Collectable before July,
Collectable after Julv
Total 17,500
This is based on tbe present rates
paid to the government, but which
the council have power to charge to
mi it themselves.
It is learned that the govern ment
has wired Assessor Keen at Kaslo to
strike Handon off his list. This
leaves the real property of Sandon
untaxed, and wilt give the city an
opportunity of making its own as*
neamnnt. This should be taken advantage of, and the burden of tax
Mtion placet! entirely, or as nearly
so as tlte law will permit, upon the
lis re land values, exclusive of any
improvements. At no place anywhere Is this more inijierativc than
in Sandon. where there is no insurance ind the man doing business has
to take all the risk. The practice
of building on leased ground, which
is so common here, is another reason
in favor of this method. Here the
leMMee takes all risk of being burned
and of failure in business, and the
land owner takes no risk at all.
Where the land owner has built his
own improvement* he would be bene-
tited in the mine manner as the man
who has built or Is doing business on
leased land. He would play more
than even, and is consequently interested in having this plan adopted.
The matter is one of right and just-
ticc, and no question of personal interest or delicacy bas any place In
it. *

A Large Number Of Masquers
and a Crotcd of Onlookers.
The masqued carnival last Saturday evening was a grand success.
The attendance of skaters and onlookers was larger than anticipated,
and the general verdict was that
the scene presented by the number
and variety of costumes was very
fine, The New Denver band did
their best to please, and added much
to the evening's enjoyment. There
were many striking character representations among both the ladies
and gentlemen. Of the ladies we
give a partial list:
Miss Percival wore a gown which
consisted entirely of Paystheaks,
and was voted the most graceful
skater among the ladies.
Miss Cliffe was charming in a
white gown trimmed with roses, as
Miss Crandall wore a red and
black costume, with a big red hat
Miss McCrae wore a bridal gown
and veil to correspond.
Miss Crawford was radiant in a
Scotch plaid.
Miss McArthur's costume of black
with golden stars was very effective.
Miss Bade was saintly as a nun.
Miss Connelly as the pirate's maid
wore a becoming gown of red.
Miss Skinner made an irrcsistable
Bo Peep.
MissMcDougal wore a bewitching
milk maid's gown.
Robinson Crusoe Hood was by fsr
the most stunning looking girl on
the ice.
Mrs. Cooley.Mrs. Phypers and Mrs.
Sharp as the three little girls in
blue, with gingham aprons and
sun bonnets, were delightfully comical.
Mrs. Olson was dressed in a becoming toboggan suit.
Howard Cameron as "Whoa Bill,'*
was well impersonated.
The wish is generally expressed
that the management give another
carnival at an early date.
The Whitewater Sold.
Negotiations for the sale of the
Whitewater mine, pending for several months, were reported closed
last week. The purchasers are the
London aud British Columbia Gold
Fields Company. Ltd,, the deal being
closed by J. Roderick Robertson,
representing thst strong English
company. The Whitewater group
was examined several months aro
w by S. S. Fowler, engineer for the
company, and about three weeks
ago by J. D. Kendall; consulting
engineer for the corporation. Favorable reports were sent by both
gentlemen and an option given to
the London and British Columbia
Gold Fields Company, Ltd till the
8rd inst. This was taken up by a
recent cash payment on account in
Kaslo. The deal is virtually a cash
transaction, as deferred payments
came in quick succession. The
Whitewater group of four claims Is
located two miles from Whitewater
station on the Kaslo and Slocan
railway.    The controlling interest
, of two-thirds was acquired several
years ago by J. C. Eaton, of Spokane, and W. E. Price, of Oakland,
Cal. Tbe remaining third was owned by W. E. Mann, of Spokane,
Major J. L. Montgomery, of New
York, and J. L. Retallack, of Kaslo.
The purchasing corporation acquires
the Interest of Eaton and Price. Mr.
Eaton has given personal attention
to development of tbe claim for four
years.   Themmci8nowonapa>1iig|TL0  finnrlonnillTh
Wis and dividends have been dc    | \\Q   UOUQUNUUH.ll,
dared regularly for several months. *****
For some time past the property has
been shipping in tbe neighborhood
of 200 tons per week, the shipments
steadily increasing each month, the
ore averaging $70 a ton. The purchasing corporation will undoubtedly continue vigorous development of
the property.       	
The Cltu'a Reoenuea.
Tlie Mining Review, in dlscussine
the city's revenues, advocates petitioning the legislature to grant power
to municipalities to tax merchandise,
personal property and professional
men, and not require the "poor land
owner," fbr whom our agricultural
contemporary appears to have unusual
regard, to bear tbe burden. It is
not probable that the council will
act on this advice, or if they did, is
it likely that the provincial government would take a move which
would mean a step backward of
twenty years. It is a matter of
pride with all economic thinkers
that British Columbia has recognized, although it may be in only a
limited degree, the injustice of taxing industry and enterprise, while
an abundant supply of revenue is
obtainable from land'values, wealth
unquestionably made by the community ss a whole and not by the
individual owner. It is plainly to
be seen that professional and business men pay a tax when thev
pay rent to the landlord, and to assess their stocks of merchandise or
their calling is requiring them to
pay a doable tax.
That the council will evolve a
method in due course ot time of rais
ing funds is without question, and in
the meantime wi!) gladly r.celve
and consider sensible suggestions
frnm anv source.

Vast and undeveloped coal deposits
will be thrown open to the world when
the Crow's Nest Pass railroad, now constructing, is completed. The new line
connects the transcontinental system,
crossing the great plains of the Canadian
Northwest with the valley that lies between the Rocky Mountains oa the east
and the Selkirk* on the west. According to Dr. Selwyn, former director of
the Geological Survey of Canada, the
western fields contain 41,992,0011 tons of
coal per square mile, and the area, with
coal deposits explored up to the present, consists of about 150 square miles.
The coal area is in. the southern part
of the country known aa East Kootenay. The whole Kootenay district is
beyond the North-West Territories, extending some 300 miles north of the
international boundary. East Kootenav alone is ahout two-thirds the size
of the kingdom of Greece. Now that a
railroad is being pushed through this
terra incognita, a period of great development is anticipated.
The coal fields are 60 miles southeast
of Fort Steele and in proximity to
Crow's Nest Pass. It is not unlikely
that in the near future a network of
American railways, like these in West
Kootenay, tapping the minini? region
for the benefit o tbe Great Northern
and Northern Pacific, will traverse tbe
eastern section. The discovery of the
deposits occurred during the early
eighties, but it was not until 1887 that
the country was thoroughly prospected
for coal. Then the fields, covering an
area of 150 square miles, were discovered
The first de|*o*>its are not far from the
west end of < row'-. Nest Pass, and eon-
*.i*t of 2U'��eams of coal, one above
another, clearly visible along the mountain rid-rca and stretching up to the
summits Fourteen of these seams are
catiuel coal Thice of the seams are
respectively 16, 20 and SO feet wide
Another great series of seams is that in
the Klk River Valley, where they extend for nearly 40 miles. One (-ream,
from 90 to HO feet thick, is 1,500 feet up
the mountain, across the face of a
broken sandstone cliff. Higher is another seam, erect and 80 feet wide Ten
other broad seams are in close succession The iiniitfnt.itv of the deposit*,
can scarcely be realised. Of coking
coal their is an abundance. Some authorities pronounce the upper seams
bituminuotis and the lower anthracite,
but this is contradicted by other expert*.
The Dominion government has reserved 5 i.ooo acres, and 200,000 acres of
ttic coal area are controlled by an a*.��*o-
ciation of Canadian capitalists and the
Canadian Pacific Railway.
and for manv other purposes they can
be employed even younger. It takes
well on to a century for the struggling
trees iu a dense wood to hare any
marketable value
While good timber is becoming gradually scarcer on account of our annual
forest fires, rising from the conditions
already stated, the demand Is Increasing, and, what is more remarkable,
Europe is already calling on America
for a supply of lumber. American oak,
especially, la in great demand in the
Old World, while our black walnut is
closely following in its wake. Our
lighter woods, also���such as the tulip
tree and poplar���are coming into great
demand, there for paekiug-hoxes and
cases where light weight is a great object. Those who areluterested in forestry in our country should take up the
matter of encouragement of forest
planting. It will soon be a greater
question than forest preservation.

Looking not very far into the future,
it seems that the planting of American
forests will become a productive industry, says Median's Monthly. Preservation of old forests, with their masses of
dry underbrush and fire-inviting collections of dry lea ves, may be advisable
for some reasons. These immense
masses of firewood undoubtedly tend to
collect snow, which, bv its gradual
melting, furnishesa supply to the water
reservoirs benesth the surface of the
Sround. Snow thaws less quickly under
ie shade of trees than iu the bright
sunlight Less water, therefore, runs
to supply Hoods and freshets than when
the suow is made to pass away gradually. But this question does not affect
the solid timber interests.
In old forest*, where there is a struggle for life among tho trees by the
reason of their growing so thickly together, the result is the necessity of
waiting manv vears before f e (rest
will reach a size to make them desirable
for timber pur|tos��s. Where trees have
room to grow, and are properly cared
lor. most kinds of American trees will
furnish useful timber in 90 or So years. (

is proposed to transport 300; 000 pounds
of provisions, which, if all goes well
and none of the perils of mountain
travel are met with, will require
1500 pack animals and 500 men.
Such an expedition is almost certain
to meet with great peril. It would
be difficult for such ao army of men
and horses to travel over snow-covered mountains without causing dis-
lodgment of the snow, and the result
of a slide would be disastrous. However good tbe route selected may be,
the expedition is certain to be the
cause of great loss of life.
Should the party get through ssfe-
ly, which is extremely doubtful, the
men will have to be furnished with
return transportation. Feed will
have to be furnished fbr them tor
probably 60 days. At a ration of
four and one halt pounds per day to
the man, the drivers will eat 135,003
pounds of grub, or nearly half of the
supplies provided. What the animals
will do for food or how many will survive the trip is a quandary.
The latest advices from Dawson
show there is now absolutely no need
ofthe expedition. The miners can
worry along until the opening of
navigation, when thousands of tons of
supplies will reachvDawt_on. What
galls the Victoria and Vancouver
people is that all the goods, which
are coming from, the states, will be
admitted free ol duty and are tn be
distributed free to the miners, meaning a corresponding displacement of
Canadian products without any
equivalent therefore. British Col
umbisns look upon the whole project
as a Yankee trick designed to cripple
Canadian trade with the new gold-
fields, and to foster the Impression
that the Klondike is in Alaska Mr.
Sifton's concession Is in striking contrast to the action of the American
government, which in. 1870 refused
permission to tbe Chicora. with the
Red River expedition under Lord
Wolsley, to pass throagh the Soo
Canal, necessitating the portaging of
men and supplies on the Ontario side
of the river.

The work of incorporating provincial companies under the guise of
mining concern)-, goes   merrily on.
They are all covered by much the
same stereotyped form of charter
under which they msy run any kind
of enterprise from a railroad to a
pawnshop. It is doubtful whether
the statute book of any other British
oolony would permit the incorporation of such a comprehensive "Jack
of all-trades" gang of concerns under
the masquerading, title of mining
companies. An incorporated company should be strictly limited to one
defined pursuit, and the neglect o
this wholesome rule will surely yield
a plentiful crop of trouUe in tbe near
future. One of the first acts of the
coming session of the Legislature
should be to pass legislation to meet
this evil, based upon British law.

Mr. Claude Sachs, editorof the Mining
Investor, of Cotodor, writing recently
to the Mining Journal, of London,
Eng , says, in regard to promotions of
worthless American mine undertaking*
in London: "It mav be that dishonest
Americans procured* and sold worthiest*
properties, but dishonest British promoters must have been in collusion.
Experience has taught me that the
average British promoter will have
nothing to do with a good mining property that can be purchased at a fair
price. He wants worthless territory at
the lowest figure, so that the per cent-
age of profit may be enormous.
This is quite as true of British Columbia promotions made in London by men
of the same unscrupulous type says tbe
Mining critic. Owners of "fair properties here know to their cost thai wild
cat propositions far more easily find
favor with large numbers of London
promoters than do legitimate opportunities. And hardlv any meeting of a
recently formed British Columbia gold
mining company is now held in Ixindon
at which monstrous exaggerations of
fact are not made by a certain class of
expert, backed by a certain class of
promoter. Deliberate quadruplication
of values and possibilities is with such
regarded as moderation, yet many a
British investor drinks in'every word
and believes it absolutely accurate In
fact it is pot saving too much to assert
that British Columbia promotions made
and attempted in London are only in a
minority of cases planned on fair busi-
nesH lines, allowing at one and the
same time due profit to intermediaries
nnd fair scope for investors. A grab
game goes on most of the time.
I have always thought that the
bicycle as a social leveler was far
superior to the ballot-box. There isn't
half the equality between men ofthe

who ride the same wheel ?
The other day M. Perier, the former
French President, found himself far
from home, near a little wavside inn.
Being; very hungry, he asked for food
The landlady regretted that she had
ouly eggs in the bouse. "Surely,' said
the ex-President, "you pan give me a
steak." "No," she answered, "not
without walking half a mile " M Perier
grasped the situation, mounted his
wheel and rode off. He bonght the
steak and brought it ba:k, and she
(���(Miked it lor him. The whole thing reminds me of King Alfred and the cakes,
and though the landlady was completely
overcome when she found out who her
guest was. I do not believe it would
have made any difference if she had
known all the time. Perhaps in that
case she wouldhaveborrowed his wheel
and ridden it herself!

and ting, and the tongue gets loose. The
world calls that excitement evidence of
stimulus, but, instead of accepting that
verdict, analyse it, and it is exactly parallel with every other anuthetic. The
patient goes through exactly tbe same
stages from chloroform. But where ia
the surgeon wbo supposes that stimulates his patient? It is only the transition from the first beginning of diminished eonsctousness.
Next he begins to lose his sense of
propriety, and talk as he would not talk
were he free from that influence. That
aame influence causes him to say that it
protects him from cold. How long the
tbe belief has prevailed that if you are
going out into the cold you cannot stand
it without having something to warm
you. And people would testify before a
court of justice that it did warm them!
How many thousands of our profession
have been giving it, Mid are giving it today, when feet are cold, to help warm
the patient; and yet the clinical thermometer tells you accurately, step by
step, that from thirty minutes after it is
taken, on to tbe end of its influence, the
temperature is diminished���the body is
getting cold. Tbe patient would testify
the contrary. Why? Simply for the
reason that the anaesthetic effect diminishes the oonsciousneee of whatever is
cold or not; but he finds out the fact
next morning. Had his sensibility remained he would have known when he
was getting cold, and he would adopt the
proper precautions. Look again when
July comes, and the sun is pouring down

tile the pntient* took it, for tiie first
days or nights, generally not more

ihed their feeling of weakness: but
lies the great delusion. One of
curiosities to my mind in regard to
Jhol is the delusion it has upon the
rid. The good old Book did not aay
rain, nor at random, that wine is a
sker, aud that Strung drink ia raging,
that whosoever is deceived thereby

He will reply: "Oh!

tin* case. It warmed him in January,
now it keeps him cool���the same delusion. It protects him from the beat.
The sun's rays permeate him as freely
with alcohol in his blood as it would
without it, but he does not realise it;
ami hence hundreds, year after year,
jremist in this practice till perhaps a
sunstroke arrests them and sudden
de tth follows. Leave their brains clear
ami tree from the anaesthetic effect of
alcohol, and they will know when to get
on the shady side.
Just the same with our good ladies���
for there are various veins in their delusion���in nursing; they suppose that
nursing pulls upon their strength, and
thins their blood, and that they must
drink wine or beer everv day, and two
or three times a day, to keep up their
strength. Now, 1 have watched that as
carefully, to use an expression, as a cat
watches a mouse, and what is the result?
Tlte good mottier takes her heer or her
little a-iue every morning and each mealtime to keep up her strength while she
is nursing, and sometimes they add, to
make milk for the pabv; but my experience and close observation for yean-
is that the mother suffers exactly the
same delusion as the laboring man to
whom 1 have just referred. True, she
(eels weak, she gets tired easily, and
with the little anaesthetic effect of alcohol, she does not realise tlie sense of
werineas in her muscles, and she says:
"It i.i tbe only thing that keeps me up,
and enables me to get about"; but every
one of them, within four to six weeks
of its use, who compare their conditions
with what they were wh*��n they began,
know that that tbe last state is worse
t tan the Arst. The alcohol has been a
positive injury to her. Its presence in
the blood diminishes the alteorptton of
oxygen in tiie air-cells of the lungs, aa
was long since proved. It lessens the
exhalation of the waste carbonic acid,
is itself a further anaesthetic, and in the

Oa Forty-Xlae aad Wlld-Horae Ciwaka.
Mr. John Dorsey, President of the
Bright Prospects Company, which is
operating the Northern Light group ou
Forty-Nine Creek, says the shaft is down
��5 feet, and four assays returned $36, |H0,
|84 and |99.30, chiefly in gold. It is the
intention to sink the shaft to the 100-foot
level as soon as possible.
Mr. J. A. Harrington of the Referendum group on Forty Nine Creek, states
that the ten-stamp mill for that property
is now nearly all on tbe ground, and is
beibg erected as rapidly i.s possible, A
force of men will be put to work at once
taking out ore. The mine is looking
very well, and improves with every foot
Five men have been set to work on the
Summit mine on Wild Horse Creek and
will drive a tunnel to intercept and
drain the shaft in which the strike that
so astonished mining circles was made.
As already reported, Mr. John Turner of;
Nelson has purchased a one-quarter interest in the claim and the owners are
now Messrs. John Lindblade, John Bergman, C. W. Anderson and J. A. Turner.
An offer of $15,000 for a one-half interest
was refused last week. The ore in the
shaft mentioned, according to all reports,
is rich enough to pay the owners to
crush it and pan it. They intend to
open the mine and put it on tiie shipping list next spring.
An ironmonger received a case of
hardware the other day; and on comparing- it with his invoice found every-
thin*.- all right except a hammer, which
was missing.
"Och! don't be troubled about that,"

miles up the creek. A brut 70 log buildings now dot the low Hat which a month
ago was nothing but a cedar swamp
and forest Many hands are busy
clearing away brush and making the
site habitable for a large number ol
people. Naturally after Bull Head
prairie comes Coal Creek. The Coal
Company which owns the land at the
erf*ek ���. mouth will soon have the same
surveyed The most extensive deposits
of coal yet discovered lie on Morrisey
Creek, lo miles to the south west, and
here also is a large even flat <*uite suitable for a townsite called Ridgeway's
"ranch'' owned by the railway corn-
pan r. The coal town of course wtll be
at the coke-ovens and t hese will be built
at the liehcst of the Hallway Co. The
���'burning" question of the denizen* of
Coal Creek now is, where will the ovens
be built? Coal Creek or Ridgeway's
ranch Ridgeway's ranch is a timber-
leas flat at the mouth of Morrisey Creek
1<) miles from the Elk River .rousing.
In regard to the progress of construction the situation is about this. The
work has been all allotted and the
contractors have all been encamped ou
their portions for about three months,
besides clearing the right of way almost
nothing is accomplished so far* It bas
taken all their time rustling for food
for man and beast. Although tbe
weather has been remarkably favorable
for railway building, but little advantage being taken of the propitious circumstances Some of the contractors
are absolutely idle and if you ask what
they are waiting for the invariable reply is ����Haney.' No attempt is being-
made at the foundations of tho great
bridges on Elk and the Kootenay
rivers. The steel is laid as far as the
south fork of the Old Man River where
it will rest until spring, the entire gang
of 150 men having been iaid off, and
work In that line is discontinued until

Prom Damon City.
Bv thc steamer City of Seattle arriving from Skagway on Friday
ihree members of the Klondike miners' deputation came from the north,
"'hey are going to Ottawa to solicit
Mnendments in the mining regula-
ions.     These   gentlemen,   Maxim
indervillc, specially representing
the French-Canadian element among
the miners; Dr. A. E. Wills, who
may be described as the English-
Canadian spokesman, and R. J.
Livcrnash, the champion of the
American or alien interests in the
country, disembarked at Victoria.
"Speaking1 for m'vaelf only," Mr.
Livcrnash said, "t do not care to
discti**-* the changed regulations at
present, in tht; first place liecause 1
do not think it would lie either dignified or profier to make our representations through the medium of
the press. I may say this much,
however, that I am personally much
gratified to note the tendency of the
government, as indicated in these
most recent regulation*., to give in
the Klondike a liberal administration of affairs. And I have no doubt
that when the facts are better understood the government of Canada will^
see it-s way to be yet more liberal to*
the northern miners." The other
mem her* of the deputation expressed
i themselves to much thc same effect.

trip to the coast by dog-train in 30
days. He had six dogs and made no
effort to hreai. the record. Speaking
ofthe discovery of what is termed the
mother hide of the Klondike, Slavii.
said: "If it is the mother lode I am
nndonbt the disc iverer. O.i August
27th last I started out -propec-ting for
a quartz claim, and struck a very
rich ledge which seemed interminable in length and very wide. Free
gold sltowed everywhere In the
specimens I got I did not remain
out long, however, but returned to
the placers, and not until November
did l prosecute  mv  search for gold
?uartz. On December 91 made what
term the big discovery. I traced
the ledge for six miles and found
that it eroased the hea 1 of Gold Rot
torn. Sulphur. Hunker and Bonanza
creeks. If traced further It would
probably strike Ophir and oross Indian river sbout 15 miles from the
Klondike. Do I think it is the mother
lode? Well, I cant say whether ii
Is the mother lode or the lather lode,
but I know It is the richest quartz I
have ever seen. My party located
six claims, 1500 feet each ih length,
and we are going to work them as
soon as we return. Twill shortly
leave here lor Pittsburg, where I will
purchase a diamond drill and other
machinery for developing the mines."
It is estimated by those best qualified to judge, that counting dust,
monev and paper together, not more
than $150,000 constitutes the fortune

Aggregation   of Home Talent an
East) Mark for Rossland.
About the yellowest attempt at
athletics that was ever perpetrated
on an unsuspecting public was the
bluff put up by the Sandon hockey
team on Thursday evening. Quite a
crowd of trusting expectants vv-re
on hand to see a game. The puck
was faced off and the gang set to.
The scene that followed would make
a toot-ball wrestler green witii envy.
Shinny, off-sides, flukes and fumbles
followed each other in rapid succession. One or two ot the Rossland
players had evidently seen the game
played and understood the theory ot
the'thing, they made the points or
the game might have still been in
progress. Alter the contention had
been in progress for about twenty
minutes, O'Brine, playing point for
Rossland, made a goal. When this
was fully explained to the Sjtndon
players the game proceeded and the
Silver City Appolos wrestled and
floundered* through till half-time,
when the flunkeys came forward and
led the heroes to their cornel's to be
rubbed down and prepared for the
next spasm. But as to the next
spasm���we will draw the veil of
charity. Suffice it to say that Ross-
sand made all the points they wanted and then waited calmly for the
call of time. Score: Rossland, 4:
Sandon, 0 -0-0-0.
