Editor ami Mgr
Sandox has now approached the
period when it ia time to think of
self-government iu municipal
affairs. There is no doubt, that
many arguments could be advanced against incorporation, but our
individual interests require that
something more than a Gold Com-
missioner is needed to look after
the welfare ami advancement of
our town.
From the government, who   are
supposed to take a paternal   interest iu our well-being, we get   little
<>r   nothing.    They   take   nut    of
Sandon  annually   for  liquor  and
trade licenses alone nearly ��4.000.
in return for which we get practically uothing.    All   the improve-
uieiits that have been made in tbe
town, and   the  prosperity  of the
town   itself, is   due to   the  enter-
prise   of our  citizens.    The  gov-
eminent have been   paying, up  to
the present  time,   the   munificent
sum of $30 per month   to   a  constable, and had not the citiz-ns o,"
Sandon   supplemented   it  by  WO
we would have been  without   police protection, as no man can live
on &J0 per month, much  less sup.
port a family.    We  can  only   assume  that  they supposed him   to
uive the cty 180 worth of protection
Again,    in    the    case   of    fire
protection.    What   has  the    government   done   in    this    matter?
Nothing.    A subscription list   war
eiiciliated and the  hose  reel   and
other fire extinguishing apparatus
was purchased by tbe townspeople,
'���r rather we should say a  portion
of   them.    When   a  request   was
made to the government  through
i heir    representative,    Napoleon
I'itzstubbs,   for   assistance,   what
was the answer?   "When  appropriation! are being  made  for  fire
I>retention   in   the   Kootenay,   you
will not be lost sight of."    Which
meaus, practically, as  far as  immediate benefits is concerned, to
go to tbe deuce.    Can we possibly
make a  worse fist of   governing
this community  than   they   have
done and rre  doing?    We  think
not.    We will have, at least,  men
who will be urged on by self-inter
est. As the town prospers, they will
prosper.     They   will be   resident
here and in  a   better  position  to
itidge of our  most   urgent   wants,
and   we   have  many.    Instead  of
only a portion   of the   population
putting up  for  necessities,  which
at present have to be furnished by
ti.e   people    out     of  their    own
pockets,   each    individual    would
have to bear his share i f the burden.
Take, for example, the sanitary
condition of Sandon.    Lust winter
Sandon was  a   town   of sufficient
itnpotfance to merit  closer attention, in   this  direction,   than   was
vouchsafed it.    But nothing  was
done, either during the   winter or
summer,   to   provide  a  means of
disposing of the rubbish and  offal.
When  our lawgivers  are   lax   in
such matters, is it surprising  that
the   rank   ami   file   of the   people
should   be  no  better?    After  almost two year*, accumulation   of
rubbish had been piled at the back
doors and in the alley-ways, along
comes the sanitary   inspector  aud
holds up his   hands   in   horror at
such uncleauliness. part of which
he   cannot   see.   for   already    the
sm��w has covered it   up.     lie   im-
mediatelv gets   iu   and   threaten*
the people with all the   terrors  of
the law. if this condition of affaire
is hot  immediately  remedied, all
of which would never have existed
had proper  measures on  sanitary
lines been taken in the first place.
We do not wish to be const rued as
blaming the sanitary inspector tor
this reuiisettesa. We go deeper and
blame the government whose failure to do their duty is the direct
cause of it. Why lit they persist
in their insane policy of treating
us as lab a in swaddling clothes
when we have long since cut our
wisdom teeth? It is a question
that the average man will find
a |M��ser.
There is no use of procrastinating. Sooner oi later we will have-
to undertake the government of
the town, and it is better to take
steps now to have Sandon incur*
porated before we "go broke" subscribing for some necessity that is
sure to spring up. and for which
we peed not expect any assistance
from our precious government.
We have been holding meetings
and passing resolutions, repre-
senting our crying wants to the
legislature, until the whole thing
hus oecome a screaming farce, and
it is  high  time   that   we  should
recognize the fruitlessness of such
proceedings, and net down to busi-
ness, and take the necessary steps
towards getting the control ofmun��
ieipal affairs into our own hands.
The ability of our citizens to  run
their own   show cannot   be  ques
tioiied, and certainly   the average
of their intelligence is  equally as
nigh as that ofthe  men   who  today attempt to rule .% province.
VancoIVKK presents ihe rather
funny picture of a man about to
take a bath and stands on the
hack afraid lo lake the plunge.
The   Vancouver people   want   a
smelter, or at least they have talked enough about it to give us the
impression that such in the!I de
sire, yet they keep dilh -dallying,
callinn fruitless meetings ami giv.
ing exhibitions of vacillation, that
would do credit to a full-blooded
Siawash. They must have all the
requirements for a smelter point

American Talk  la Freedom'-. Friend.
The old saying that "talk is cheap
but it takes money to buy the drinks"
has a special and immediate application to the foreign policy ofthe
l*nited States at this crisis in that
natiou's history.
Muttering liberty :n Cuba tor some
months has had to board and clothe
itselt on the proceeds of United States
The time has come when liberty
must perish if the I'nited Slates does
not ��top talking and begin to buy
A nation which loves freedom so
pi> ioi a e.y aa the United States does
will not. hesitate to purchase the
freedom of Cuba at ihe expense of its
own business interests. There is not
much giorv tor the United States in
lighting Spain. The United States
has a great deal to lose, and Spain
has lo*t so much that its further losses
would be comparatively trifling.
War with Sjiain would have a
tendency to sol>er the American public men and newspapers which are
mere to blame than the politicians
t<��r the trouWe with Spain. The
United States is no friend to Canada,
but aside from all questions as to the
uiuanutiss of the American Government, the sympathy of light thinking
Canadians would "be wit^ a nation
which, with all its faults, represents
more of liberty, of true civilization
and of hope for the world, than Spain
ever will represent

Sandon, B. ('
Editor and Mitr
Sandon lias now approached the
period when it is time to think of
self-govern men t in municipal
affairs. There is no doubt, that
many arguments could he advanced against incorporation, but our
individual interests require that
something more than a Gold Com
missioner is needed to look after
the welfare and advancement of
our town.
From the government, who  are
supposed to lake a paternal  interest iu our well-being, we get   little
<��r   nothing.    They   take   out    of
Sandon  annually   for  liquor ami
trade licenses  alone nearly -S4.O00.
in return for which we get practically nothing.    All   the improve*
meniB that have been mmle in the
town, and   the   prosperity   of the
town   itself, is  due to   the   entnr-
prise   of our  citizens.    The  gov-
t-rnment have been   paying, up  l����
the present  time,   the   munificent
sum of |80 per month   to   a  constable, and had not the citiz-ns m'
Sandon   supplemented   it   bv   ���**��<>
we would have been  without   police protection, as no man can live
on $80 per month, much  less sup.
port a family.    We  can  unit/   assume  that   they supposed him   to
Kive thec'ty $30 worth of protection
Again,    in    the    case    of    fire
protection.    What   has  the    government   done   in    this    matter?
Nothing.    A subscription list   war
eiiculated and the   hose   reel   ami
other fire extinguishing apparatus
was pu relinked by the townspeople,
�����r rather we should say a  portion
��'f   them.    When   a  request  was
made to the government  through
i heir    representative,    Napoleon
I'itzstubbs,   for   assistance,   what
was the answer?    "When  appropriations are being   made  for  fire
protection   in   the   Kootenay,  you
will not be lost sight of."    Which
means, practically, as far as  immediate benefits is concerned, to
go to the deuce.   Can we possibly
make a  worse fist of   governing
this community  than  they  have
��� lone and  fre  doing?    We  think
not.    We will have, at least,  men
who will be urged on by self-inter
est. As the town prospers, they will
prosper. They will be resident
here and in a belter position to
lodge of our most urgent wants,
and we have many, [n ate ad of
only a portion nf the population
putting up for necessities, which
at present have to be furnished by
ti.e people out of their own
pockets, each individual would
have to bear his share �� f the burden.
Take, for example, the sanitary
condition of Sandon. Last winter
Sandon was a town <>f Sufficient
importance to merit closer atten*
tion. iu this direction, than was
vouchsafed it. But nothing was
done, either during the winier or
summer, to provide a means of
disposing of the rubbish and offal.
When our lawgiver* are lax in
such matters, is it surprising that
the* rank and tile of the people
should be no better? After almost two vear*. accumulation of
rubbish had been piled at the back
doors and iu the alley-ways, along
comes the sanitary inspector and
holds up his hands iu horror nt
such uncleanliness, part of which
he cannot see. for already the
snow has covered it up. Il��- irn-
inetlialeh gets in and threatens
the people with all the terrors of
the law. if this condition of affairs
is not immediately remedied, all
of which would never have existed
had proper measure* on sanitary
lines been taken in the first place.
We do not wish to be construed as
blaming the sanitary Inspector for
this lemisHM-ss. We go deeper and
blame the government whose failure to do their duty is the direct
cause of it. Whv lo thev persist
in their insane policy of treating
us as i ab -s in swaddling clothed
when we have loner since cut our
wisdom teethY It is a question
that the average man will find
a poser.
Thef* I* no use of procrastinating. Sooner oi later we will have
to undertake the government of
the town, and it is better to take
steps now to have Sandon incorporated before we "go broke'* subscribing for some necessity that is
sure to spring up. and for which
we need not expect any assistance
from our precious government.
We have been holding meetings
and passing resolutions, representing our crying wants to the
legislature, until the whole thing
hus oecome a screaming farce, and
it is high time that we should
recognize the fruitlessness of such
proceedings, and get down to business, and take tbe necessary steps
towards getting the contiol of municipal affairs into our own hands.
The ability of our citizens to  run
their own   show  cannot   be  ques
tioned, and certainly   the  average
,��f their intelligence is  iqually  as
High as that of the   men   who   to.
dav attempt to rule a province.
Vam ot'VKK presents the rather
funny picture of a man about to
take a bath and stands on the
baik afraid to take the plunge.
The Vancouver people want a
smelter, or at least they have talk
ed enough about it to ��ive UM the
impression that such is tloor tie
sire, yet they keep dilly-dally tug,
eallin,, fruitle-s meeting* and giv-
ing exhibitions of vacillation, that
WDOld do credit to a full-blooded
Siawash. They must have all lbs
requirements for a smelter jH.int
else, smelter men WOtild havf long
ago quit them in disgust.     While
hey are fooling   away tune   with
th��ir   diaOUSSitrtttl   and ittevtiogS.
M|eore that should Imj smelted in
the    Province and tin* peeuotarv
benefit! that would bedefit d both
bj that city and mine owtor- in
this neetion, are all pacing a<T"*��
the border to enrich om neighbor*
who are fully alivr hi tlo* advan
lajf's of tie* Mtl<+!ting ifidu��tr .
Either our coast friend* are   indif
t'eient to the mineral resonroes of
the Province <��r else thev lack the
enterprise necessary to make a
strong bid for a share in the pro-
tits to be gained by treating Britieh
Columbia tires lo BritiahOdumbia.

Among the most curious uses to
which iron has been placed is that of
visiting cards. Many great iron
maiiutacturers have had the metal
rolled in sheets so thin that it has
been successfully employed tor this
social use. It is interesting to know
that the cards ot Count Kenard are
1.000th part of an inch thick; those of
Baron Krupp one-S20rh jiart of an inch
and Count Harroehs one 640th part ot
of an inch.
According to Mulhall, the most remarkable Iron establishment in the
world is that of Krupps, at Ftsen.

Krupp had delivered 15,000 pities of

Not long since a statement  went
the rounds ot  the  papers that there
was iron enough la  the  system of an
ordinary man to make a plowshare.
This stat4-ment is exceedingly   wide
i-l the truth.    The amount of Iron con
tuned in the animal tissues ot a man
welgtiing ISO poontts  is about 100
grains, or a quarter of an ounce.   Yet
so    Important    is  even   this  small
amount to the system that a difference
ot a few grains more or less may pro

<)ne historical authority states that
the earliest discovery ot iron within
thapreaaol limits ot the country was
in tne mountain range of western
North Carolina, and the tirst etiort to
manutacture it into merchantable
form was made in the state of Virginia in 1619, The foundry ��vas destroyed by Indians in 1622.
During the Revolutionary war a
great iron chain was stretched
across the Hudson river to prevent
British ships from entering. It was
protected by batterlei on each side ot
the river, and was inanutactured at
a famous iron foundry in New York.
At the tune it was considered a marvel of genial and skill.
The first attempt at the substitution
nf iron for wood in Shipbuilding was
made in 1821, but not untill l82i�� was
the practical value ofthe :��u! strution
fully demonstrated. An F.nglish shipbuilding firm constructed iron lighters in 1329 and the tew following

��� In all ages the tendency of man
has been to divorce religion from
morality. A survey ot history reveals no race, tribe or nation which
was not avowedly religious; on the
"other hand, great immorality has
been found associated with strong
religious zeal. India has been plung
ed for centuries in great moral darkness. Yet India was the cradle of
religion. The Chinese are a religious
people; yet their ethical standards
are low. The Greeks and Romans
worshipped their gods with scrupulous
attention to outward form and ritual:
yet this devoutness did not restrain
them from outrageous vices. Even
within the Christian church the
s'.range separation ot two obviously
inseparable elements of human nature
continues to this day. The mediaeval
church man was ofted as demoralized
as he was religious ; the men of the
renaissance age in Italy went to
mass before tbey went to murder, or
sought the confessional before they
broke the commandments of purity
and honor.
The reason for this incongruity
bet ween the life and the profession of
raith ; between the religious act and
the moral act, is not far to seek. The
incentives to religion are manifest and
powerful; the incentives to goodness
are less obvious, The primeval man
in the morning fvtlight of the world
felt the mystery of the natural forces
about him and sacrificed in fear to
that unknown deity who must be
propitiated. The Israelites in the
desert slew bullocks upon the altar,
for their ffod was a jealous god, and
tbey must gain his fa vor to prevail
^against their enemies. So for generations men have bribed deity,
*v\ moved to acts of religion by fear of
the hereafter, or by concern for the
present. They have believed in the
capriciourness of God, whether they
believed in his goodness or not.
The idea of deity has come down to
modern times. Recently a church
was built in Berlin and dedicated as
a memorial to the emperor, William
I, and the court minister spoke of
"his simple religious feeling which
attributed all his great deeds and
victories to God." And it is true that
the old emperor every time there
was a fight made it was his first act
to send word to his wife that he had
been blessed by God with the opportunity to kill and mangle a tew more
Frenchmen. It was a cardinal doc
trine of his creed that God always
approved of everything that he, as
the apostle of Germanism, did, and
that He had a special aversion for all
Frenchmen. He seemed to think
that God had quite changed iiis mind
since Jean and Friedland and Auiter-
litz and Montenote and ixxli and
Marengo. And in this very year of
grace there is the same grotesque
disposition on the part of religions
SCCtS, of political |>arties, of nations
and of individuals to array the al
mighty���in whom they declare "there
is no variableness nor shadow of
turning"--on all sides of all questions
Touchstone expresses surprise that
breaking bones should be regarded
as sport for ladies, and the spectacle
ot warring nations and wrangling
sects and political faction;* each devoutly imploring success for itseif and
confusion and destruction for its op
pouents is one to till Mephistopheles
with unutterable glee.
However, the modern generation
has understood the relation of law
and order to the material universe as
no proceeding generation understood
it. They have reasoned that the
physical order must be the symbol
ofthe moral order, and inconsequence they lav more stress on ethics than
professions. Modern ske|>tieisiii has
despaired of theology, but modern
reason and guod sense have laid firm
hold ot the Ten Commandments,
To the men who separate religion
from ethics and to the men who separate ethics from religion, the teach
ing of Christ is equally applicable.
He taught that there is but one incentive to goodness, the love ot humanity, and through the love ot
humanity, the love of God. He
taught that goodness is religion, the
only religion acceptable to the father
of all men.
His words were heard with amazement by the ritualists ot his day, the
Scribes and Pharisees, who served
God with ablutions, sacrifices and
the giving ot tithes; but Ihe multitudes listened eagerly to s teaching
so simple that children could understand it, and yet so comprehensive
that it embraced the life ot man. In
His own life Jeans exemplified His
own teaching. He had everything to
lose by not being religions as the
Jews then oonceived of religion. Yet
He broke their Sabbath when it was
necessary to do good and denounced
their ol��servances ot forms and ceremonies because it made them cnllons
to the needs of their fellows He
taught them that they could not fulfil
the law it they did not love and serve
each other.

tijjcnient  in the  Paystrkak  calling n meeting of the  members of
tlie Independent Order of Oddfellows in Crawford's Hall, Sandon.
A, large number of the order as
sembled   and  entered   upon    the
first step preparatory to organizing
a lodge of the   order   in Sandon,
which will he the first lodge in the
Slocan   country.      Bro.    Douglas
was voted to  the  chair  and   Bro.
K. C. Sewell was elected  to act as
secretary.      After   Bro.    Douglas
tiaik the chair he read a letter from

necessary information for organiz
ing a lodge, after which the  members discussed the advisability  of

needy who may require the assist*

Fira at tha Clifton.
On Tuesday morning, about 1 a.
in., tire broke out in the Clifton
House, caused by the upsetting of
a lamp. The fire alarm was
sounded and after some little delay
the fire brigade arrived and the
Haines were extinguished. The
club-room, at the back ofthe bar,
was scorchel a little, but beyond
giving the guests of the house a
severe scare, no very great harm
was done. The damage will be
covered by about $100. It is an
ill will that blows nobody any
good and this fire aroused the people of Sandon to action in the
matter of providing the town with
better appliances for the purpose
of combatting a conflagration and
also the more thorough organization of tlie Fire brigade, in order
to do away with the confusion and
conflict that was so apparent at
the blaze of Tuesday morning.
