Keep the Money at Home.
It accut* a very ahort nigh ted
policy for anyone to Mttd away or
buy tn another town anything that
can la- got here, even though the
c*m la* warn-what higher. Probably
ninety par cent, of the money paid
for aalarieaaml wagt-aaml the pro-
Htsof buaineaa, out-ude the value of
ore produced in tht* minea, ia mail
up in the coat of living and for other
Our-pOMe, directly and inimediau-ly.
That ia, ahout ten cents on every
dollar that change* hands in Sandon
will la* of no benetitto the rest of the
population, and ninety cent* will be
tliatribut��**i through ' the natural
channel* of trade, eventually bene*
lluiug everyone living here. In
caaa, nowever, the money i�� lent out
of town we are (poorer by ninety
cent-, tm every dollar that got**, anil
in the course of a year tlie lo** in the
ajrtfrejrHt** ia eiiormoua. and a very
werioua ime u��each individual. Thu'a
althouglt it may appear of ad van
tag��* in certain eaa��*a. If the practice
were genera), buafneanof ever\* kind
wouldatop. It therefore benooves
everyone t<�� buy of Itjcal dealers.
Keep the imau-y at home.

nany, left Friday for Spokane, San
Francisco and the Southern States.
He will be away about three months.
Hlen. W. W. Warner is working
four men on the Ajax, three miles
from Sandon, on Payne mountain.
The dip of the ledge follows the slope
of the bill, and is found within a few
feet of the surface the full length of
the claim. This allows the mine to
be worked from tunnels, one below
the oilier close together. Five tunnels are now in, and another has
juat been started. The ore is clean
galena, and is bagged and ship-red
from the mine. The mine shipjied
��W,000 of ore last year.
Sandon at the Bat.
Sandon has organized a basekill
club, which is believed will prove
the strongest in the Kootenay. Local

Work on the property of this company is ttcing pushed ahead with
vigor. The tunnel wliich is being
run to crosscut the ledge at a depth
pf 260 feet is now in nearly *J00 leet.
It is exia-cted the bilge will be
struck when another fifty feet has
la-en comnlet-tl. A shaft to the
depth of fifty feet has been sunk on
the ledge and this is in ore all the
way down. The ledge is about ten
feet wide ami is undoubtedly,a true
fissure  vein.    The  ore assays   87
ounces in silver and the very high
percentage of 81 per cent. lead. It
is expected that when the lead is
reached a fine body of ore will be
struck. The property of the company consists or a group of four
claims situated between the Reed
and Tenderfoot and Canadian
groups and also of the Hope claim
near New Denver. Altogether about
$3,000 has been expended in development work and improvements.

United States might learn something
from Canada when it contrasts itat own
system with our system of changing

trill ? Tbe American system ot making the tariff publicweeks and months
before it can be enforced at the custom houses to adistinetencouregeiiient

system of making the enforcement ot
a new tariff coincide with the an-
nounoetnent of that new tariff.
At Washington just now tbe new
tariff is just where it has been fbr the
past month, in the hands of tbe&enate
Committee, with conflicting interests
pulling and hauling, and senators
bickering for changes in a bill which
will take effect nobody knows when.
At Ottawa the tariff to announced late
at night, and the custom houses which
dosed under tbe old scale of duties
open under the new scale.
This difference illustrate* the su-
