SANDON AND CODY, April 3,1897.
A Silver Proparty   thst   Looks   Down
Upon  Sandon
lor SOOte   lime   past   there   ban
been considerable interest shown
in the Vrgo. particularly among
mining men of experience. When
one stopH to consider, it in not
strange thai so much interest is
manifest. The fact that it in located in ihe Sloean. und iu tht* slate

pOSed all the way dowu. It is not
regular as to width, often swelling
out to considerable thickness, owing to the soft slate  foundation in
which it lies.
The lower tunnel has bees
driven in about 305 feet. After
running in thirty test   the ledge
��SS tapped, this eras then drifted
on for the remaining 175feet. It is
high grade ore   varying  in   width
from a trace to eighteen inches.
The usual width i- from six to
eighteen inches aud the face of

was tirst a shaft, then a ariose aud
would probably now be called an

At the present time it i-. ijuiie
difficult to get into the face of the
lower tunnel, owing to   the   water
having been darned up by some
obstruction at the tunnels mouth
where it was frozen solid. This

Then* is little doubt as to the
permanency of this ledge, the
country rock being soft slate,

There ate many thousands of dob

promoting mining companies.

Buildings are going up right and
left in Sandon at present. The
activity shown in undoubtly due
to the recent decision of Judge
Forin, wliich practically settles
the townsite question. Judge
Forin in rendering his decision
said: "That while a claim owner
and the Crown might have a dispute as to surface rights no third
patty had any right to come on
suoh ground ami that, ifnecessary.
the claim owner could eject any
one he saw fit.
.1. M. Harris has started to erect
a business block that for size and
finish will far surpass anything in
Sandon. It will be a three story
building, having a frontage ol
ninety feet on Reco Avenue, with
a depth of forty feet. All the
plans have not been completed but
we are able to state that the first
corner room on the ground Hoor
will be occupied by a bank and
the remaining rooms on the same
Boor will be occupied by stores.
Tne second floor will be used
strictly for offices, while the third
floor will be converted into a large
ball to be used on certain grand
occasions where a great amount of
room is required. The block will
occupy the ground formerly OCOU.
pied by Nick I'alorcia and Ueo. B.
Kuowles. The building will be
completed within six weeks?.
A church is to be built in San
don to cost ��2,000. It will be
built by subscription. ��600 of the
money has already heen raised. J.
M. Harris h;is donated the ground.
It lies between the Keco trail and
the K. and S. right of way. The
dimensions are 34x61 feet. Tn ap
pearanee the building will resemble the modern church building
with lofty spire and slanting roof.
\V;nit of space forbids usgoing into
farther detail at present.
A. I>. Williams and P. Anna nee
are erecting a huge business block
on the ground adjoining lirini-
inett's new building. It will be a
two story building and will have
,-t frontage of i!0 feet on Keco Ave
In design it will resemble the
Harris' block, having a hallway iu
the 000tor. The lower floor will
be occupied by -tores while the
upper story will be converted into
office rooms.
The buildings that are being
erected by Messrs. Ross, I.evinsoii
iv. Kleinberg are well under wav
The fust. whi'*h will he a two story
hotel building is ready for the roof
and will be completed   in  a   week
or more.   The second which  will
also be a two story building will
not be completed before a mouth.
The neat little building that is
being erected for Harvey Bragg,
adjoining the Grimniett building.
will probably be completed within
the month.
There are a great number of
smaller buildings, aud dwelling
houses, that are under course of
construction in different parts of
the city. We will not try to
enumerate them for they are too
numerous to mention. Verily, a
building boom has struck  Sandon.
The Payne is still keeping up its
wonderful record as a producer.
Sixty-six cars, containing 1,100
tons of ore. were shipped during
tne month of March. The upper
tunuel is in 700 feet aud the lower
tunnel about 460 feet. They are
being driven ahead at the rate of
twenty feet a week.     After    raw-
��� a
hiding ceases development will be
pushed ahead with increased
vigor. The wagou road will be
improved so that the mines production will not be materially
affected by the transportation
Work on the Keco tramway will
be commenced as soon as the
weather will permit. The mill
will be located in the outskirts of
the city.
On Tuesday the second payment
of $3,000 was made on the Daisy.
Victoria and Vancouver parties
are the owners. The payment
was made through the promoters
and agents. Messrs. Leigh ton *��*

SANDON. B.C..   APRIL 1 l��7.
It anything were lacking to demonstrate tbe unneighlx-riines-* and distinctly selfish attitude of thc Lnit^d
States, as regards Canada, it certainly has heen provided by the proposed
Dingley tariff. It was expected that
the Republic would return to MeKin
leyisra. in spite of any overtures
which Canada might make kr reciprocity, hut even those who have had
the least faith in the friendship of tbe
Gatifted States conki have hardly
looked for the threat contained in tlie
timber clause.
In this clause it is pn j��*sed to enact that Canadian lumber sl~ll be not
only heavily taxed, but that, if the
D:��minion {Ots an expor. duty on any
article, tbe tariff against this country
shall be increased twenty five per
cent. Of coarse Canada is not named
but one reading it, no matter how
Iittlt acquainted with tariff matters
tbey may be, can ignore the fact
tiiat it is specially intended as a
threat to this country.
Wc cannot deny our neighbors the
right to legislate for the nisei ve��, no
matter bow foolishly they do it. but,
after they have fixed their own tariff
tn ��rait the���selves, it is an insult to
Canada to proceed to tell us that we
must fix our tariff to suit them, or
they will make it hot for us. This
i> practically what they mean, and
if we do not resent it, we are not
deserving of any better treatment.
However, this DBase of tbe new
bill may not }*** Goagreas. but
whether it does or not we should put
an export duty on logs, pulp wood,
and such raw material as our neighbors srs now taking across the line to
bs manufactured in their country. It
they do not get our timber, or if they
pines a prohibit-ry duty upon it they
will be unable to export lumber or
the manufactures q| that article in
competition with Canada, and it will
give us an opportunity to build up an
export trade of our own instead of
letting our products drift through
Yankee channels, tha- leaving the
name of Canada unknown in foreign
c jutriee. No matter how they try
to hammer as, the result will be the
same as during the existence ot the
MeKinley bffi: it will teach us self
n-liance, and fore* us to took tor
customers elsewhere.
The Dingley bill as it sumds is exactly what Canada needs, for no Canadian Government can jossibly fail
lo resent it and act accordingly. If
the whole disj nte ends   in di**crimin
ation in favor of Great Britain, and
tbe closing up of much of our trade
with the United States.aH the better.
The hardship would he only ItajfOT-
an- and the benefits lasting.
The man whc> takes as l*n*ines*>
partner a person of whom he knows
nothing is recklessly imprudci L But
his imprudence does not approach
that of parents who give tlieir
daughters into the keeping of Strang
ers who come to their hearth*- with

Thk Globes Ottawa correspondent
says: In diseusaiug the question of
the Crow's N>st Pass railway with a
member of the Cabin��'t this morning
your correspondent was told not to l��e
surprisedif lbs Government left the
matter severely alone. "Why, he
���sked, 'Should"we concern ourselves
abont a road tor thc Kootenay mining
district? In all Southern HritishCol
umbia the total i-opulation does not
exeecil 2.V01, and ot those only
about 8000 are Canadians. Win",
then, should we sj-end money to prvv
vide American capitalists and Am
crican minei*s with a railwav ? There
would l�� much more to be &aid in
favor cf the exoenditura of money tor
a railway in the Rainy River gold
district in Ontario, where the mines
arc Chiefly owned bv Canadians."
