The interview* with property

������iii.ii*hed in The IUy*��t*iuk last
vtt'it'k, were v*omethinjf of a surprise

E. U. Handilands, la-tag called upon, said he thought the meeting
should flrst be informal as to what
revenue a municipality would have
and what the eicpensai would he,
upon which the chairman asked:
''Does any gentleman know what it
costs to run a town council?"
A. D. Williams mentioned instances where incorporated cities
were  taxed on real  estate and im*
Srovements only Ave mills on the
ollar, while the provincial tax was
one-half of one jut cent. What we
would get if the town of Sandon was
inct*r**orat4*d was, he saki, approximate" as follows:

ui excellent speech on the general
'idvautageaof incorporation. In re
gnnl to Sandon he said jSlmt. many

others were lining little or nothing,

On the other hand Mr. Williams

|0 the provincial government. I**-
eaftSQ tne town, at the last assessment, was only oite-tifth of what it
i-; now, but he felt Mire he had not
overvalued the iuiproveineiitsaf.they
wore at present. Several of those
pntsentexclaimed that the valuation
was low enough, and Mr. Williams
added that one of the l��est reasons
fbr incorporation was that we hatl
sufficient revenue on which to carry
on a municipality.
Then the tjtieMion was asked what
must la- done in order to secure in-
ouna ��rat ion. to which the chairman
replied that one-half in value of the
property owners had to sign a petition for'nuMr-KM-ation nnd present it
to the lieutenant-governor in council before Bepteniberl. Immediate

E. D. Tra vera said he had not given the suh-
jeet of incorporation mneh thought, and for
hi* part he thought the town was ju.t as well
nnder the pr**ent syatem,and Robert Cun-
nlnc expreaae*! ttimaelf similarly, adding the
thotuht that it was a little too early to incorporate.
Tlte chairman: Bnt if yon do not apply under the Hperdal act pa��-t��d at the la.t Msston,
y����u will have to send to Victoria an t get
through the legitdatnre a special aot. Thi*
wonld lie very expensive, while, if we ;>ut in
cur appeal hefora Heptember 1, It will lie com-
IMtrntively in*xpen*iv*.
Then the dLtenasion wa* switched to the ��mb-
ie**t of municipal finance, Mr. William, qoot-
iag tiuurv. to .how that their tax*, wonld not
be higher. Tbey mtut remember that the
property valuation wonld increaM and the
a%aa>����ment* he larger if the present >v-t*m
wa* continued. Take Mr. running's hotel, for
UtaiaiH**. That would be valned at certainly
not lea*, than -WjUrtKaml at one-half of one per

a big tax under any municipal government.
A. iMvid thought the estimate of fStlftOO too
Jaigh for the Mweiage system, and it would
not be aec**.*ary to borrow so much as there
Would be a big surplus on tbe revenue of th

Mr. Surgeant Breaks His Arm Aa
He Mounts a Horse.
A. W. McCunc, vice-president of
the Payne mines, left on Tuesday,
and was accompanied by F. E. Sar-
geantand W. L. Hoge of Anaconda,
who arrived in town on Sunday.
Mr. Sargeant is secretary of the
Anaconda Copper company, and is
the confidential agent of Marcus
Daly and J. B. Haggin, the race
horse breeder of California. Mr.
Hoge is the senior partner of the
firm of Hoge, Brownlee & Co., which
runs the Daly banks in Anaconda
and Butte.
Both gentlemen are heavy owners
in the Pavne and the Best properties, and they would probablv have
stayed the week in Sandon, but for
an almost inexplicable and painful
accident that befel Mr. Sargean*.
The party were starting out on Monday morning to visit the Payne
mines. Mr. Sargeant was in the act
of mounting a horse in front of Bart-
lett's livery stable when his right
hand, which was grasping the rear
of the saddle, slipped as lie sprung
to mount and his arm was twisted,
breaking the bone midway between
the shoulder and elbow. * It was a
clean fracture and Dr. Powers had
no trouble in setting it.
As Mr. Sargeant is a man of large
frame and evidently in fine physical
health, he was able, although naturally in great pain, to continue to conduct his business, and several conferences were held during the day
in his rooms at thc Gotidenougti.
One of these had reference to tbe
tramway the Payne mine will shortly begin work oif, but whether it is
to be a ray or an aerial tramway
has not yet been announced.
The Northern Belle, on Jackson
creek will put in a five-drill compressor shortly.
The Kuth mines have ordered a
five-drill compressor, which will be
put in as.soon as possible.
The bull wheel of the Noble Five
aerial tramway, at the mine end,
was found to be cracked on Monday
morning. A new one was telegraphed for to be sent by express,
and until it arrives the tramway
will not he run.

London Hill company's six claims at

To Protect Mining Intereata.
T. G. Proctor, vice-president of
the West Kootenay Mining Protective association, is staying in Sandon.
He reports that the association is
progressing satisfactorily, that most
of the leading mine owners have
joined and that it has money enough
in the treasury to do some* kicking
against adverse mining legislation
at the next session of the provincial
j,   Tom Pinneagn'a Ham.
Toin Finnegan is charged with
having ruined all the bears of the
ing, meditatively ovtf&ng * cigar,
agonized veils and the odor of onion*,
followed by th.' affrighted form of
Tom, bur**t through the canvass.
He had been chased by a bear, he
said, and had thrown the beast a
ham. Since then no miner dares to
pack ham along the trolls, a* the
whole ofthe bear populati.-ti has become struck on the dainty and will
scent it for miles.
An Expert Mineral Tracer Pei***wma
on tha Idler.
General Warren has been blowing
around town a great deal about the
wonderful lowers of divination
shown bv a witch haael man from
Fairview* B. ft, whose name is also
Warren* but whether the General is
in earnest or is only "joshing" it la
hard to make out. At any rate, he
took the lead tracer on daturdar
out to his Idler property, which ta
about two antl a halt miles from the
concentrator at Three Forks.
The wizard was told by the General to go ahead as soon a*, the property was reached. Accompanied by
his' familiar, a handsome spaniel
called Jack, he marched down the
hill a distance before he took out his
switch, then he switch backed up the
hilt, and after a time sn-iued to grow
excited, for the twig was beginninjjr
to bend, lie sut-sequently repotm
that he had struck a lead', which be
followed and blazed out himself for
quite a distance.
The General remarked that they
would only have to tunnel about 75
or Si) feet to prove whether there
was ore there or not.
The wizard did not notice any sarcasm in the remark, but went on
to say that the ore body was
of good grade and from four
feet to four and one-half feet wide
all the way.
"I suppose," meditatively observed the General, "that thfs business of yours Is like Christian science; the more you work at it the
more expert vou get?"
"Oli. sure,'' said the flattered wizard.
'���Then, no doubt, you will lie able
in time to give us pay ore statistics
and assay receipts?*'
The wizard smiled as if willing to
admit even that was possible in
due time, of course.

Mr. Sargeant Breaks His Arm As
He Mounts a Horse.
A. W. McCune, vice-president of
the Payne mines, left on Tuesday,
and was accompanied by F. E. Sargeant and W. L. Hoge of Anaconda,
who arrived in town on Sunday.
Mr. Sargeant is secretary of the
Anaconda Copper company, and is
the confidential agent of Marcus
Dalv and J. B. Haggin, the race
horse breeder of California. Mr.
Hoge is the senior partner of the
firm of Hoge, Brownlee A Co.,which
runs the Daly banks in Anaconda
and Butte.
Both gentlemen are heavy owners
in the Pavne and the Best properties, and they would probably have
stayed the week in Sandon, but for
an almost inexplicable and painful
accident that oefel Mr. Sargeant.
The party were starting out on Monday morning to visit the Payne
mines. Mr. Sargeant was in the act
of mounting a horse in front of Bart-
lett's livery stable when his right
hand, which was grasping the rear
of the saddle, slipped as he sprung
to mount and his arm was twisted,
breaking the bone midway between
the shoulder and elbow." It was a
clean fracture and Dr. Powers had
no trouble in setting it.
As Mr. Sargeant is a man of large
frame and evidently in fine physical
health, he was able* although naturally in great pain, to continue to conduct his business, and several conferences were held during the day
in his rooms at the Goodeiuttigli.
One of these had reference to the
tramway the Payne mine will shortly begin work on, but whether it is
tb be a rail or an aerial tramway
has not yet been announced.
The Northern Belle, on Jackson
creek will put in a five-drill compressor shortly.
The Ruth mines have ordered a
five-drill compressor, which will be
put in asjsoon as possible.
The bull wheel of the Noble Five
aerial tramway, at the mine end,
was found to be cracked on Monday
morning. A new one was telegraphed for to be sent by express,
and until it arrives the tramway
will aot be ran.
T. O. Proctor, manager of the
London Hill company's six claims at
Bear Lake, was here during tin-
week, and said the company would
begin shipping right away! Thev
have been doing development work
since last winter, and nave in 800
feet of tunneling with a four-feet
lead of fine ore.
To ProleJt. Mining Interests.
T. G. Proctor, vice-president of
the West Kootenay Mining Protective association, is staying in Sandon.
He reports that the association is
progressing satisfactorily, that most
of thc leading mine owners have
joined and that it has money enough
in the treasury to do some' kicking
against advene mining legislation
at the next session of the provincial
,_   Tom Finneagn'a Ham.
Tom Finnejran is charged with
having ruined all the bears of the
neighborhood of Sandon. When J.
K. Clark was sitting in his tent on
the Palmita property the other even
ing, meditatively no/ling �� tfeT**1*.
agonized velh and the odor of onions,
followed by the affrighted form of
Tom, burst through the canvass.
He had been chased by a bear, he
said, and had thrown the beast a
ham. Since then no inn dares to
pack ham along the trans, as the
whole ofthe l>ear population has become struck on the dainty and will
scent It for miles.
An Expert Mineral Tracer Perlonne
on tha Idler.
General Warren has been blowing
around town a great deal aliout the
wonderful -towers of divination
shown by a witch haael man from
Fairview, B. C, whose name is also
Warreii, but whether the i.cneral i��
in earnest or is only "joshing'' it is
hard to make out. At any rate, he
took the lead tracer on tat unlay
out to his Idler property, which is
about two ami a halt milt**, from the
concentrator at Three Forks.
The wizard was told by the General to go ahead as soon as the property was reached. Accompanied by
his* familiar, a handsome spaniel
called Jack, he marched down the
hill a distance before he took out hb
switch, then he _witehbacked up the
hill, and altera time st1*. med to grow
excited, for the twig was beginning
to bend. He sultsequciitly n*ported
that he had struck a lead* which he
followed and blazed out himself for
quite a distance.
The General remarked that tbey
would only have to tunnel ahoat ..*>
or A) feet *to prove whether there
was ore there or not.
The wizard did not notice any sarcasm iu the remark, bat went on
to any that the ore body waa
of good grade and from four
feet to four and one-half feet wide
all the way.
"I suppose,'* meditatlvelv observed the General, "that this business of yours is like Christian science; the more you work at it the
more expert vou get?"
"Oh, sure,'* said the nattered wizard.
"Then, no doubt, you will U* able
in time to give us pa"y ore statistics
and assav receipts?"
The wizard smiled as if willing to
admit even that was possible in
due time, of course.
The Promised Lockup.
Chief of Provincial Police Hu-isey
of Vkftoria antl Attorney-General
Smith paid an official visit to this
city on Saturday and left for Kaslo
the day following. The chief ex
prcased himself well t-atistied with
the manner in which Chief Hamilton has conducted thc police affairs
of Sandon. He said that the new
lockup will be built as mttm as the
title to tin* land can be secured. The
site selected is below the brewery.

Address: Tn* Paystbkak, Sandon. B.C.
SANDON. B. C, JULY 10, 1897.
The steps being taken for the incorporation ot Sandon meet with
general approval because they are
based on common sense and good
judgment Sandon is in as good a
position to fairly claim her rights to
home government as any of the cities
to which these rights have been accorded during tbe past year. She
has not at present the population of
Rossland, but with the pay roll behind her it looks now as if she might
in the near future outstrip her much
boomed sister. Rossland* pay roll
has been and is practically at a standstill, while that of Sandon is increasing every day.
Just pause for a moment to consider
the great additions that will be made
to this pay roll by the improvementa
and the extensions of the mining industry in this neighborhood tbat have
recently been decided, upon. Tbe
Reco, for instance, will have its aerial
tramway, and possibly its concentrator, in operation by November 1st,
and outside the labor employed in
the erection of these, will increase
its force of miners from 38 men at
present, or 65 when rawhiding stopped, to 250 men, who will work all
the year round. The Ruth, now
working 85 men, is putting in a compressor and a concentrator, and will
largely increase its force. The Slocan Star, that now has on its pay roll
110 men, will pat on 50 more as soon
as the lead is struck in its No. 5
tunnel. The Payne Mines, when its
new tramway is completed, will
more than double its force; the Wonderful will have a tramway in operation shortly, and the Noonday will
have a concentrator.
These are only a few of the leading
mlnea that will more than double
their working forces and thus swell
the pay rolls and the population.
This increase, too, will not be for tbe
winter only, the mines being no longer dependent upon snow upon which
to rawhide ont their ores, but wi!! be
permanent, and the miners, instead
ot "batching*' as at pcesent, and
being here today and gone tomorrow,
will have steady Jobs and will build
themselves homes and have their
families here.
Oneol the best authorities on the
subject ofthe mining activity ofthe
district, makes the conservative estimate tbat not less than tht ee thousand
miners will be employed in the immediate vicinity of Sandon this winter, and this must largely increase
the business of the city and add to its
growth and prosperity.
With such an outlook as this it
becomes a pressing necessity that
Sandon should handle her own revenues, and carry out the municipal
improvements made absolutely essential to so rapidly growing a community* '
I\ addition to publishing incorrect
and fossilized news, the local advertising rag edited by a man wbo
should be weeding turnips instead of
annoying mining people, has a grav
er fault. The rag, to save expense,
comes out later in the day than The
Paystreak, which gives it an opportunity to steal news that we pay tor.
We expect papers at a distance to
occasionally do such a thing, but
when a local cheap rag does it, we
object Tbe editor might as well get
through our window .at night and
steal our paper and type. News Is
just as important to us as anything
else in stock, and a man who would
use ft in the manner mentioned, Is a
literary cur, whose gall is on a par
with some of the other scrubs now
pestering the people of Kootenay with
what they call newspapers.
The editor of tbe Fort Steele Prospector evidently never had any
money in Burke's Kaslo bank or he
would not gush over that individual
In the following manner: -
"The pnrchase ot the Dibble mine
by John M. Unrke of Spokane, for
his Company, la going to prove a
good thing for this section ot the country, as the syndicate to composed of
some ofthe richest and most prominent men operating In British Coin in
bla mines. This tact in itself will
have a tendency to attract the eye of
capital to East Kootenay, and this
aooomplished, there ia no doubt bnt
that investments will follow. We
learn that work was commenced on
the mine during the past week, and
will be pushed through in expectation ofthe railroad coming through.
Major Burke will be back July 1st,
and it is sincerely hoped that he will
make more investments, as he is a
good man tor any country."

*_*���> a month to a city solicitor who
would probably be doing about that
amount of work for the city in a year.
Many a man in Rosalaiid today, unite
n* well ediicated a* the city solicitor,
cannot iimi work enough lo feed him*
nojf nn bean* and bacon, and it did

like everylwdy else, to make uioneir,
and he would have been far too anevfic
to live in a mining camp had he refused
lo acci'pt the nice��� little plum which wa*
<lr��.p|Hti into his mouth. 1 hope Mayor
Scott will stand pat. Seme people *eem
to think that a tabling camn ia like a
milch cow and ought not to Kick even
il milked dry.
Mr. McNeill says he will take no notiee of Mavor Scott's KUttpnalon. but will
p> rijrht on acting a* city solicitor. He
aav* the mavor ha* no power to cms-
]*ew\ him, but had the whole council
eoiH-urred in the decision to "drop"
him he would have accepted the situ*
ation nnd said no more about it. A* it
is, he iitfends to stick to the poat. but
Hav* he "has no desire to thrust hi* tier
vice* upon an unwilling public." There
ia not the least doubt that the public is
decidedly unwilling.
The *Ito**Und newspaper* have had
the idea that (t wonld render them unpopular to make any kick against high
**nfartet�� for municipal employe*. None
of them ever made the least protest,
���von at a time when a few favored la
borer* were leceivlng W a dav at i
time when their unfortunate fellow la
.Mirer* were walking the -turect* without
s dime in their eockets. High wage*
for the few and starvation for the many*!
That Is neither human nor Christian-
like on the part of these who ordered
"licit a condition of thing*, and yet
never a word appeared in the local
pro** pointing oat a better plan for the
iHiiefit of he out-o,-work majority on
the street*. I was the only one who
ventilated the matter, two or three
week* ago, and 1 should not lie *ur-
prised if Mayor..Seott read the Limna,
an the week following the appearance
oi my letter he reduced the wage* to
��.60 and ha* now taken mv advice by
trimming down some of the higher salaries.
The Centre Star mine made Its tirst
���mipinent of ore to the Trail  smelter
last week. It was a small lot, only 45;
ton*, hut it is a beginuliig, and* the
com|'.tin will continue to ship from tlte
new shaft near the War Eagle dump,
leaving: the vast body of ore blocked
out underground until the smelter
treatment and freight rates have been
materially retimed. This make* five
good mines now shipping ore regularly:
The War Eagle, Le Koi. Iron Mask.
(*olintibia-Kootenny and Centre Star.
Ore shipments from tht* camp for the
half year nearly reach 40*000 ton*, and
the ere milled at the O. K. stamps
8,000 ton*. Not a bs I showing. There
IS net much doubt that the output from
Rossland mine* for I8B7 will reach 100,-!
000 ton*.
Under  the  new   management   the
Monte Cristo is coming into tbe best
Showing of ore in it*whole history. The
continuation of  the main tunnel has
been in rich-looking ore for the last 85
feet, aud a crosscut is to be run in to
ascertain the width of the lode.   The;
mine is now under the management of'
George If under, who is in charge of ���
operation* on  the Colonna. and both
mine* will lie worked very much a* one
property.   Two drill* are at work in
the Monte Cristo and another is to be
introduced  underground   next week-
No ore will be shipped until the cost of
treatment is cheapened.
There is one similarity between an,
inventor and a discoverer*.   As a
rule, neither of them makes anything
out of it

Col Pat Donan, one of the best
known newspaper men in the North*
west, in an interview with a Globe-
Democrat reporter, has this to say of
the Kootenay country:���
"I have just come from one of thc
Xew Worlds true wonderlands, with
a big, big W blown in the bottle, and
Jehovah's facsimile signature on
every label. Oh, yes; I know 'wonderlands' are as common���in railroad
and summer resort literature as ignoramuses and disreputable blatherskites in the degenerated United
.States Senate. Every 1 ittle one-horse
region that happens to have a few
topographical warts or wens on its
face, one or two exaggerated molehills like Mount Washington, a duck-
puddle like Minnetonka, a hole in
tbe ground like Mammoth Cave, or a
half dozen mud squirts like the Yellowstone geysers, floods creation with
gorgeous advertisements of itself as a
' wonderland,; a 'gardeu of tbe gods,'
or some other such hifalutin humbug.
But 10,000 of them, all rolled into one,
would dwindle to nothingness compared with tbe realm of crystallized
fairy-yarns 1 have recently wandered over.

There were five of us hunting and
fishing in the Puma range, and om
rainy day, when we were sticking
! close to the shanty, a stranger ap
jpeared. He said lie was a tramp
barber, on his way to Dobbs City,
and as none of us had been shaved
for a fortnight we gave him half a
day's work. He had a steady hand
with tbe razor, and was an expert
with the shears, and tbe only peculiarity any of us noticed about his work
was that he let his razor lovingly
linger on the throat. We gave him
his dinner and $2 in cash, and he
went away well pieaaed. Abont four
hours later a band of six men rode op
and the leader enquired if we had
seen a tall, roughly dressed man paw

Mr. Rand Returns From a Throe
Months' Business Trip.
C. D. Kami of the firm of Hand &
Wall bridge, telegraphed on Friday
from Vancouver to Mr. WaJlbridge
that he woald reach here on Sunday,
and he arrived home on thai day
some 24 hours befbre his lightulng-
winged message. Mr. Rand Ion
Iterc on April 1. and made stays at
St. Paul. Alimieapolis, Chicago, Buffalo and New Yook. In the metropolis he spent four weeks, and met
many of Ibe leading capitalists who
are "interested in mining matters.
He returned l>y way of Boston, Montreal. Ottawa and Toronto, tpend-
ing some days in each of those
cities. Canadians, he found, had
been binlng1 largely of cheap stocks,
hut he iVIievfd they would bay min-
in*T projierties if got A proposition**
were ottered to them.
*'I found the feeling in regard to
the Kootenays very good all along
the line," said Mr. Kami, "and in
New York the outlook for capital for
Slocan ]>rop*>sitions seemed very
promising. Several New Yorkers
have visited tin* Slocan and have reported it to lie one of the richest
mining districts in the world."
How the C. P. P. Business Has Increased Since January.
The iKissetiger and freight hind.
_tes8 at the Sandon station of the C.
V. R. bas so Increased during the
year that the present pokey little
i��ox is a serious inconvenience to the
jmblic. At each train the platform
is so piled with baggage ami freight
that there is scarcely room for the
passengers to stand. The new- depot, which was mentioned last week,
will come none too soon, even if the
building is commenced nt once.
Th& is bow the -lasM'tiger business has Increased since the beginning of tin.- year. In January the
jMissengers numliered 341, February
4f>8, March 695, April 731X May lOOi,
aud June, the month just eha**!,
1040. This shows that Sandon is
rapidly becoming rccognizi-d as the
leading city and the central -mint of
the Slocan. both for visitors seeking
properties and for mine owjnen purchasing supplies.

The Slocan Monitor Mining company, owners of the Monitor No. 1,
on I'ayne mountain just off the K. A
S. railroad, arc working three men
in the tunnel and are in .M) feet. A
crosscut was started last Momlav to
find the ledge. The tunnel ha*teen
run in on a stream of water that is
highly mineralized and must come
from an ore bodv, Assays bare
Ixicii made from tne dcjiosjt of the
water left on the rocks, and from
three to ton ounces of silver are obtained. The water is impreguaUtl
with sulphurous gas, uniiotieeabh*
by the senses, but which will put
out a candle in a few minute*., and
there is a small fan run by water
power to supply the tunnel with
fresh air.   C. H. Voote of Sjxikane is
('resident and general manager and
n charge of the work. J. M. Thomas and A. I). Campbell of Spokane
