CHAPTER 21
TRIBUTARY    MINES
A Few of Ihe  Properties Which Have
Made   Sandon trie   Bustling
Town of Today.
Wnii perhaps two exceptions
i here is im "tlier town iii British
Columbia that has made such
rapid strides towaids wealth ami
importauc ���. in so short a time as
lias the town of Sandon. Two
years sgo only one hotel stood to
mark tin* site ..f the town, tod.r.
ii has a population of 1,500 souls
with adaih increase,beside* being
ack uowledged as the commercial
mid mining center of the rich Slo-

Th��  a |\ ,Ui'iiir*-��    *i   Sandon  are

dividends to the summit of S300,.
Oho have been declared. This is
in addition to paying for the mine
and uther expenses sinew incurred
by the company. Th* mine h
highly developed, over -.--'> feet
of tunnel having been run 1,110 oi*
which is on the vein. The out put
from this mine per day i- estimated at 32 tons of ..re, which will
run all ihe way from 85 to liK��
ounces in silver to the ton ami
about 75 per cent. lead. The
number of rn,.n employed in this
mine is about III. It is therefore
safe to say that, up to the present
time, the Star is tin- largest mine,
not only in tie* Slocan, but in the
whole ofBritith Columbia.

the reason for the rapid and almost
phenomenal  growth   of   Sandon,
and as a bare assertion, Is  not   of
much weight, a  short   synopsis of
tin* progress and   production   of  a
few of  the   principal   ones   might
not come amiss:
The Slocan Star
Discovered in 1801.   Work was

The Wonderful.
This property has been successfully worked only since June last
and is one ' the m ist ituuioue iu
t in* history of the Slocan, from the
fact that tIn- 'inire amount nfore
taken out during the pa**, season

to 730 outii'es in silver to the ton

paid on Monday next, \bout 100
men are engaged in miring and
other operations at this mine.
The Goodenough.
This property is situated just below the Keen and is on the &am��
vein. This property has shipped
a large amount of ore snd still
continues to do so. The returns
from *>\ tons shipped to the smel-
ter gave 708 ounces silver per. ton
and 64.1 percent lead. About 1")
men are employed on this property.
Noble Five.
The vein on thi< property is one
ofthe largest in the country being
about 14 feet in width. The lead
is mostly composed of concentre*
ing ore, still a large amount of
clean ore has been mined and up
till recently over 2,500 tons of ore
has been taken out which netted
the owners of this property over
$150,000. A concentrator of 160
tons capacity has been built and i<
now in full running order. It is
connected with the mine by means
<��f an aerial tramway. Over 60
men are employed on this property, both iu the mill' ami mill.
The Last Chance-
Alt Lough the work mi this
property has been mostly ondcvel-
ojiinent lines still a considerable
amount of ore has been taken out
and .-*eut to the etoeltor. Since
I8H5, nver ,i,M> tons of ore has been
mined the retains from which gave
l**i' unces iii silver to the ton and
��� '���j per cent, leud, and during the
past year a dividend of 120,000
wras declared. This property em*
ploy* ab 'tit 12 men
The  Payne
This fine property  has  the ttis
tinction of being the oldest mine in
the Slocan.    A   large  amount  of
development    lias    been   done   Oil
tni-a property and an immense
smount of ore b<lipped. The vein
averages about three feet in width
of high grade ore averaging the
carbonates 80 to 100 ounces silver,
85 to 4" per cent, lead, and the
galena. 175 ounces  silver.   7'>  per
���������lit.  lead to the   ton       l"p   to   the
beginning of the seaaon it is estimated that $100,000 worth of .��re
has beau mined from this proper'
ty and at present a daily shipment
OJf from .>o to-pi tons of ore is being
made.   Over oi�� men are at present
employed at this mine.
Plic above are only S tew of the
principal shippers, directly tribu
tary to Sandon, and the list could,
if space permitted, be oonsideraoly
angmellted. 1 ��ut the ones already
given are surtieient to demonstrate
beyond a doubt the importance of
Sandon as a mining canter and
give s slight conception of the
rosy future which is lying before
our busy little city.
The Star Invaded-
A party of young people from
Sandon paid the Slocan Star mine
a visit last evening. The party
consisted of Mesdames Williams.
Haves, andSuarpe: Misses Gibbon
and McRac;  aud   Messrs. Martin,
Hammond, and I.angstaff. Under
the guidance of Bruce White the
party explored the drifts and
stopes and posed in several parts
of the mine while Oscar White
took photographs of the group.
Emerging to to the surface at Xo.
2 level, the party had a rather
lively trip, fraught with many
funny accidents, down the road to
No. 5 level, where the air-compressor plant is in operation, \fter
inspecting this, the remainder of
the trip to the concentrator was
made in *, sleigh, the whole party
arriving iu a rather bedraggled
condition at the office where
coffee and cake awaited them.
After which the party returned to
Sandon deep in their praises of
the hospitality of the Star people
and warm in their thanks to Bruce
White, to whose planning the fun
and jollity of tiie trip was due.
Sandon    Victorious.
'Die curling match between the
Kaslo and Sandon teams was most
exciting and afcer a series of hotly
contested game*, Sandon was declared victorious by a score of 2'>
toll. The following is the score

The   alien   labor   question   has
become a hot one, and we advise
Uncle Sam to take down the red
flag In* has raised against God'*
own people -the Canadians.
Act/oKD I xo to the Toronto
World   the   Payne   is   producing
100,000 tons of ore a month. This
shows how much a Toronto re*
porter km>w> about mining.
Ik more hotels are not imme*
diatelv built in tin* Slocan many a
pilgrim will have to look at the
stars as he reclines upon the green
sward in search of nature's sweet
restorer.
Saxoon or burst*is the   watch
word   on many    an    agricultural
ranch of the far east at the present
lu>ur. We would say to all the
farmer boys who are bent upon
coming west that it is not necea*
sary to bring hoe- aud other agii
cultural implements to Sandon.
If they do they will be out the
freight.
Thk eastern papers in their
eagerness to print mining news.
without giving the Kootenay press
credit, make so many mistakes
that mining men pay no attention
to their news ami merely look
upon their attempts to give Kootenay news, as an effort to procure
more wild cat ads fur their adver
tising columns. ��
Thk Hank of Montreal is open,
ing a branch in New Denver
which makes the third chartered
bank for the Slocan within three
months. In addition to these, two
banks have been opened at Kaslo,
a city almost entirely depending
upon the Slocan tor its existence.
These are facts, coupled with the
constant shipments of ore. (hat
speak louder than anything else
for  the richness ofthe Slocan.
A GREAT stampede has now com
menoed from all quarters of the
world to the Slocan. and as our
senile legislators will not provide
us with proper police protection it
devolves Upon every citizen to  see
that lawless people are immediate*

Nelson. R C
Honorable sir.
1 bep to thank yon for-yoftr reply
Smv letter enquiring as to the en
���cement ot the '*Snnday Law."
EThe   reply,    however,   which \<>u
:5��iB\f Ihth pleased t"  ni.ike, while il
ipav 'h* a very i*-.��!it*' statement bear
jig apon the  subject in qaestion, il
���t. I mii-t submit, an answer \o the
Sqoiry I made.
Alter carefully   ascertaining   the
���cts regeitlliag the bob observsnoe
Sunday in this part ofthe Kooten-
iy. I took the liberty of enquiring as
n the attitude   and  purpose  of the
ivemmenl  regarding the proper
bforcement of the law involved, and
In reply ant told that in VYeM K��h��umi
\ the Sunday 'IsobservSd in solar
possible  by  cessation fmni  labor
���lfcn'l basiness pursuit*.."
With All respect Ibr the "personal
���(stimony.oiiU'ial reports and general
����� .tummy" which forms the basil of
III. statements made, I am Utiind to
���y that so far M this part of the
���(Strict is concerned they are IKH
statements of faet.
There is but one town in the Slocan
m here there is any DtOpereflbrt made
At dosing even the front doors of the
���tores and saloons and WO have yet to
���earn ofa single working mine which
makes anv pretence at 'cessation
Ni"'uu lalmr" on the hail's Day.
After anont eighteen months rest*
RonOC in these caui|*s and a personal
Knowledge of the   way in   which the
Sunday Is observed in every town in
Ithis part of West Kootenay, I had not
���ie remotest Idea of making any en*
Ipiiry, even of a Oovcrittncnt official,
as to the way in which the. day was
actually observed; hut rather, to
learn If possible on behalf of those
who are interested in the proper
legal observarce ol the dav if the
Government purposed enforcing the
law at an early date.
We are quite well aware that the
action of the Government you so honorably represent b not easily to be
effected by any Miiall concensus ui
jiublic opinion, even when that opinion is entirely in accord with a righteous law, the enforcement of which
has not for some reason been found
convenient, yet we judge it to lie
��� piite fitting that the reason should be
made apparent to all parties interested, rather than the plain facts involved should be so palpably misstated.
I am, therefore. Sir, under the ne
OBssity of once more requesting the
favor of a reply to my question:
''What is the attitude end purpose of
the government you represent touching the enforcement of   the   Sunday
Law* in this pan of the province;"
and I Int: to assure you that the
AttSWer Will receive the   most careful
attention as a statement Of policy .Hid
principle.
1 am, sir,
fours respectfully,
(i. A Love.
One brief, cum deliverance, in lieu
Ofa proper answer, was considered
sufficient condecension by th.* alxive
official and so no further communication has been received.
Now, Mr. Editor,.! is not ourput*-
pose to inflict upon yen a lengthy
dissertation upon the subject of Sunday observance, but would make
brief observations upon two points;
A sacred 8unday has come to be
one of the established institutions of
our llritish  law, and  unlejs there is
some exceptional reason to be given
for its non-enforcement we naturally
expect to see it enforced. We know
of no such exceptional reason holding
here. On the contrary we believe
that in a mining country, with its
rush ot business and iis excessive
toil, there is every reason from a
purely physical as well as religious
BUndpo.nl why the day of rest should
be observed. One of the first principles of' OUT I Yeator's law s-viiis to
be the law of rest, one seventh ot the
time
We believe that law to be written
plainly in every physical constitution
as well as definitely stated in the
Mosaic Decalogue; and we as (Irmly
believe that in the record of each
lite in the future unfolded, it will be
found that th*' law has been directly
or indirectly. It not in health, then
in sickness as some of our miners
knowby exj��erieiicc after months of
unbroken labor: If not in life then
by the Cutting Off Of life.
Nature's laws must  and shall   QC
observed no matter what man's laws
may be
is it no! time  we  roCOgnute  these
things, if we wish to establish con
ditions favorable to the building up
of good communities in this country.
There is a God in all life and the
sooner we invoke his blessing in this
way the better for us as individuals
and for our country.
2nd. A word to this government
and its officials:
The Province   in   which   we  live
seems to have earned the proud dis
tinctiou of being easily the most cor
rapt and weakest in  provincial gov
eminent, of any In our Confederation. I
Certainly, if its utter disregard tor1
the letter or the   spirit of the law we
have referred to be any criterion it
has honestly earned this reputation.
Not simply in this, however. Almost
every law formed upon righteous,
moral principles has been ignored or
its violation winked at.
In spite of executive inefficiency
the "laws touching life and property
have been, partly by the force of
overwhelming public sentiment,fairly
well enforced bun most other things
have been le4.t to take care ot themselves. Saloons stand open day and
night, tree of access by some door.
Sunday and all.
Brothels and gambling dives reap
contiuuous harvests with almost
equal publicity.
If an occasional check is put on
these thing-, it is generally through
the energy nf trie local Magistracy
rather than by the authority ofthe
government offic'als.
Shame on those iu authoritv who
are well understood to wink at all
these forms of corruption, and to
direct their constabulary to do the
name
It speaks well for the purity and
rectitude ot our British laws, when
even among such conditions, and
when placed so largely at the mercy
ol such unprincipled men, these laws
olaim a measure of respect.
Of this our official called Gold
Commissioner- a most anomalous title,
it might as well be Saloon Commissioner we have little to say. In our
letter we referred to his "honorably"
representing his government. It is
better to l>e courteous where you can,
yet sjter our description of that government it will not seem so burdensome with courtesy. Personally we
do not know much against this man,
Some who know his work better
think that it is the spirit of lib fossilized autocracy which has helped to
bring his government into such disgusting repute. It is probable how
ever that he is simply a part ofa bad
machine and mav be personally inclined Ui be considered a fine official.
We sincerely hope t'��at his successor may be a better man and attend
to the enforcement of the laws so
flagrantly and openly disregarded. I
am, Dear Sir,
Tour? faithfully,

GOLD   IN   DEADWOOD
Boulders and Peaks That run
Rich in Golden Ores
STRANGE UNDERGROUND
CAVE.
lVadwoud, S. I). -Inside the city
limits, within sight of tlte F.Ik horn
roandbostse. there has been made an
interesting discovery, being ore of
the same character as so much found
of late in the limestone belt, and run-
ing 1132 to the ton. Myrick and Anderson while looking over an immense
boulder in that part ot the town, conceived the idea that it might Ik* rich
in gold, and took specimens to an as-
sayer, which returned gold to the
amount given above. The boulder
weighs about ;'*-) tons. Samples have
l>een sent to smelters heiv'J and to
Aurora. 111., and Argentine. Kan. In
the immediate vicinity an Immense
limestone peak towers high into the
air hundreds of feet above the stir
rounding country, and this on assays
is looked for to be ot the same character. The section has been alive for
a day or two with prospectors seeking
claims. Two men, in developing
their claims, found what appears to
he a fissure ve;n. the ledge matter
lieing identical with of Cripple Creek.
Float rock from the surface of the
claims, outside ot the original discovery, assays from &*��� to 38.'* to tlie ton
in gold.
In the new discoveries in the viein
ity ol this city for the past few weeks
there has been so much conflicting
claim locating that owners are obliged to patrol their claims with guns.
There has been very little claim
jumping so far. but probably only because of this patrol and the wholesome
fear of trouble. Men ignorant ol
mining laws from regions where tnin-
tag locations have never been beard
of go in and stake oft' ground "vithout
looking for other stakes, and there is
sure to be the utmost trouble in finding adjusting lines.
On the north of Oak Flat gulch
there is an immense limestone ledge
that has bulged up from below, and
several ore crevices are traceable
across it by huge Ixxilders that look
like mere limestone, but prove, on be*
ing broken open to be a fair grade of
ore. (>n the south side the formation
is abruptly broken away, leaving a
20-foot cliff that essays from 119.*U a
tOO up. It is beside a road that has
Wen in use tor 20 years.
A i*eculiar find Was made a ten
days ago at Redtern station on the is.
-v. M. road, and it is i\ puzzle to all
mining men who have seen it Ic is
a piece ot metallic iron highly Indrnst*
��"1 with g<��ld on one side. It seems
to be a piece of oaktised iron, but on
exaininatii.il is -a-und tn be pure iron,
and the gold is bright and clean,
with probably fS north in Bight "ii
the surface.
A number of eaves have been met
in tin* Bagged Top district, among
the latest being one found In a Mast
at the liallarat group, where a* the
bottom ol a 25 foot shaft a cave was
opened which has beet) explored for
Bo feet iu length sndSOfeet in width.
Its floor was covered with a white,
-now-like dust. Further examination
lias not yet Wen made, but bv the
light of a candle the sides an- seen to
he broken by numerous small crevices
that seem to open into other large
caverns. The air is -**ond but without
any spparent ventilation, snd the
owners are preparing to make exten
Bive explorations.
Development at Ragged Top arc
stopped neither by cold nor the greed
of town lot Bpecnfators. The wee!c I y
shipments from the camp arc s'eadilv
irrowing and tbe value ofthe ore sent
ootit estimated at about WO to the
ton, of which B dooen cat load*, are
now shipped weekly. EkMM ore has
been found at the bottom ot a shaft on
the Dacy that is said to run Up to
160,000 to the ton It is a close-
grained, dark rock, and undoubtedly
very rich though not the exact forma
tiou is at hand.
The capacity ofthe Kildoiianchl >i-
ination null Is to be enlarged and by
spring it will bfl able to handle nearly twice as much ore as now. A
Brown Horseshoe roaster is to be put
in as well as new rolls and crasher*
The Borseshoe mines can supply ore
eUOQgb to keey three such   plants   m
the Kildonan bnsy stead!!v.

From start to finish the game was
a lively one, and the tmecessive
accidents aud eata-trophes to the

high "food humor. Some of tiie
players positively distinguished
themselves in the use ofthe inn-key
stick, but the tendencies they exhibited of sitting down in places
and at times most inopportune,
marred greatly the effectiveness
f their play.
