It is estimated that the mil of

per cent greater that in Brandon.
Harris A Caruthers of Vancouver
have purchased the Bartlett Hotel,
at a price said to be 15,000. Steve

George Kydd has been appointed
permanent liquidator of the Noble
Five Consolidated Mining A Milling
Company, and has taken charge.
A meeting of the shareholders of
the Blue Bird Mining Company is
called for January 12, at Kaslo, to
sell the property.
It is considered certain that Rud-
yard Kipling had reference to Sandon when then he wrote "Our Lady
of tbe Snows."
It is reported that the great Bunker Hill and Sullivan mine at Wardner, Idaho, has been obliged to raise
the wages to the standard demanded by the union, not being able to
get competent men outside of that
Attention is called to the advertisement in another column of H.
Giegerich. It will be surprising to
many to learn that such a variety of
the lint st delicacies which are usually only obtainable in the larger
cities, can be had here in this mining camp. We are assured that
there is a large demand fir them by
epicures of Slocan.
F. H. Shepherd is taking out ore
for shipment from the Alpha, oa
Cody creek. Six inches of solid galena is being followed in a shaft.
The ore assays 212 ounces silver and
70 per cent lead.
A petition is lieing circulated in
Sandon and largely signed, address-
to tlie provincial legislature, requesting that incorporated towns be given
power to regulate transient traders
and peddlers. Thb is a matter that
receives the support of all legitimate
business men, and should have the
prompt attention of our law makers.
Information ia received from the
postofflce department that commencing on the 1st of January the postage of letters originating in Canada
addressed to the United Kingdom
and all other parts of tbe British
empire, which Is now Ave cents per
naif ounce, will be reduced to three
cents per ounce, the ssme ss domestic and United States rate.
Thanks and Well Wishes.
To the public of Sandon snd vicinity: Before leaving Sandon for a
new Held of labor, we take th js op.
portuntty of thanking tbe friends
and patrons with whom we have had
business relations during the past
Ave years.
These years have witnessed a marvelous change in the Slocan eountry,
the most striking example of which
is the upbuilding and development
ofthe city which has been our head
quarters. Sandon is no lunger a
straggliug group of miners* cabins.
With its active snd enterprising people, Its well equipped water Works
and electric lights, and more than
all, its world famous group of bonanza mines, the city stands today as
Ihe very best type of modern progress and enterprise to be found within the province.
While the rush of travel to Alaska
has opened up for us a promising
business enterprise, necessitating our
removal to the scene of activity, we
wish ta reiterate our faith In the future of Sandon, and to join with our
farewell a hearty expression of good
will to those we leave behind.
Hoping that Sandon will enjoy a
happy and prosperous New Year,
we remain, sincerely your*,
Bartlctt Brother*.

SANDON.   B.   C,   DEC. 18.   185)7
President M'Kixley's message submitted to tbe (Jailed 8utt$s Congress
at its opening last sreek, U without
exception the weakest document that
has come from any chief executive
that nation hss had in Iste years It
is without a parallel in tbe use of
words and phrases and eloquence that
means nothing.
All the questions ot importance to
that country; all the issues that are
being weighed by that people, are
either ignored entirely or are handled
in such a weak, guarded manner as to make the meessge oue of
words without meaning. On tbe
currency question ihe President is
especially weak, [a a manner that
is painful to see in a chief executive,
he whines snout toe evil effects of tbe
single gold standard on the people
and business of his country, snd yet,
ss il be were driven to it by the gold
and monopoly syndicate that placed
him where he is. be pleads with Oon
gress to authorise hie secretary of
the treasury to continue the work
mapped out by toe power behind
Grover Cleveland and to force the
American people to a standard that
hss been universally condemned sod
that be himself admits will compel a
perpetual borrowing of gold.
To quote from the message, the
President says t
���The evil of toe present system Is
found in the great oat to the government of maintaining the parity of our
different forms ol money���that is,
keeping sit of them st par with gold.
We surely can not be longer heedless
ofthe burden thb imposes upon the
people, even under fitirly prosperoos
conditions, while the past four yesrs
have demonstrated that it is not only
sa expensive charge upon the government but a dangerous Menace to
the national credit
������We have $900,000^000 of currency,
which tbe government -by solemn
enactment nas undertaken to keep
at pat with gold. Nobrdy is obliged
to redeem in gold but thegovern-
itfcnt. The banks are not required
to redeem in gold. The government
ts obliged to keep eqnsl with gold all
Its outstanding currency snd coin ob
ligations, while its receipts are not
required to he paid in gold. They
are paid it. every kind of monev bat
gold and the only means by which
tbe government can with certainty
gat gold is by borrowing. m Itcsn get
it In no other way when it most needs
It The government without anv
fixed gold revenue, Is pledged to
maintain gold redemption. * ��� *
Tbe serious question then is. shell
we continue the policy thst hss been
pursued in the past-thst is-when
the gold reserve reaches s point of
danger, issue more bonds and supply
tho needed gold, or shall we provide
other means to prevent these recurring drains upon the gold reserve?
Itoolanher iegWatioa is had and
the policv of selling bund* is to be
continued, then congress should give
the secretary ot the treasury author-
ty to sell bonds st long or short
peri-ids bearing a lessrste ol interest
than ts now authorized by law."
It is most remarkable how such
men as Major McKinley will change
their views. As s ruler ofa nation
be proclaims to all tbe world tbat It
is a perpetual burden upon the people
to keep up the single gold folly. On
September 12, It****, when he was a
presidential candidate snd on the
stump in bis own behalf this seme
McKinley declared:
"II a gold standard deprived the
American teller of a single day's work
or his family of a single comfort or
reduced hie wages, or made life
harder tbr Mm, I would be against
it. As it does not snd ss it promotes
the general prosperity and upholds
the national credit and honor. I urn
lor it and shall steadily tavor it as
I believe It Is truly beneficial and advantageous to our country."
Again, on October 18. I8U0. tale
same McKinley. then s congressman,
made a speech in Alleghany, Pe.,
from which we quote:
"We passed s silver bill [speaking
of his terin in congress] which I think
is the best silver legislation that has
passed In the American congress It
utilises every ounce of silver lo -the
United States, and makes the tress-
ury notes issued on that basts redeemable in gold and silver, snd good In
sll public debts snd legal tender**
all purposes. When Clevelsnd went
out 71 cents was the vslue ol the
silver dollar. Alter this bill nested
the value of that same dollar advjtnc-
ed to 92 cents 1\> my mind it is the
most liberal legislation pawed on thb
monev question that has ever heen
sanctioned in congress It gives the
people more currency, and gives them
more volume of money, snd put*
silver more nearly on a par with gold
than in IS years, and the time is
coming when gold and silver will be
msrehing side by side, doiog the
business ofthe country."
Verity, this man McKinlev is s
chameleon^ Ha changes hb color in
every light
Perhaps of sll ths towns in ths Territories, British Colombia, or elsewhere
oatskleof tbe Yakon, say* the Revel-
stoke Herald, Macleod hss been the

advent of tlte contractors for Uie Crow *#
Nest railway, with their armies of workmen, the business csme with such leapt

been used to the wild careering of the
gentle bucking broncho, considered hb
