On the Crams Meet
The days are lengthening out and
consequently work on right of way
and grade of the Crow's Meet railwav is progressing   more rapidly
than it did before the holidays. , The
different contractors are sanguine of
making a success of their work and
of coming out ahead; in other words,
of making some money.   There  is
nothing heard here of the hardships
which the men are reported to have
undergone east of the Kootenay river
last summer and  mil.   Men seem
satisfied to Work all along the whtde
tine, and verv little dlssstisfaction is
expressed.   One, and tbe only one,
instance of "trying to work a hardship on  your fellow  man" came
under my notice, and I feel that 1
should report it to you.   Tins paymaster, with assistant teamster aud
Mounted Policeman   with  a rifle as
long as a fence rail, passed through
here on Saturday last.   At the foot
of Movie lake they were stopped by
a man named Harris, who id living
in a cabin  there and engaged in
hunting aud trapping.   Harris w^rk
ed in November on tbe wagon ro.nl
and tbe pavmaster had his money
fin him*   llarris wished to receive
it as he was completely out of funds.
One would  naturally    suppose lie
would be paid there as the .police-
man with the big rifle was protection
enough to ''guard the treasure box."
No.   Tbe paymaster told him that
he would stop at Murdock's camp
over night and would leave there
early next morning���and then drove
on.' Harris started  to  walk alter
him and reached Murdta-Vs camp,
19 miles away, at U-.30 p. in., only to
find that the paymaster had driven
on  four  miles la it Iter  to a place
known as the Logging camp, where
he arrived at 10*30, raceiveu his lew
dollars,  and   started    back   home
again.     He    travelled  46    wiles.
What rear-am had the  paymaster to
compel bim to do ao ?
Cowan & Co., Supt. Thos. O'Neil,
at tunnel north end of Moyie lake,
sre making good pmgresa. They
have heading started in at tin; s-utii
end, and at the north end are facing
up tbe rock in good sh*|a-. making
everything safe before starting tlie
heading.
Mo fieath A Peters come next, hi id
have eight cuts opened up, all working, on their tour miles of rock
worn. Dave McBeath, of McBeath
A Peters* Is the man who constructed tbe 80 miles of wagon road last
fall from Kootenay lake to Moyie
lake, over which all tbe supplies are
being hauled this winter. He had
some trouble, and did considerable
Bit-suasion to induce a party of 50
ontreal Frenchmen to work on the
road on Sundays. The Arst Sunday
morning came and Dave shouted
"turn out boys." The Frenchmen
mid ft waa Sunday and they would
be breaking tbe commandments if
they worked on Sands v. Dave is a
Presbyterian, and iu his young days
observed the 8��bbath. But that was
years ago-away down in New
Brunswick. He scratched the bald
part of hb head and studied a while.
The Frenchmen thought tbey should
not work as It was Sunday. The
wagon rood nnd to he built. Finally
Dave said, "Do you think you will
be damned if you work on Sunday ?' *
"8ure," one Frenchman said,
Mthe devil will get us for sure."
"Oh no, boys/' Dsve said, "there
may be a devil and bell in Montreal,
but not here. There ia no hell this
side of the Rocky mountains. The
ttevil never yet   came down the
Kiekinghorse river." The whole
party went to work, and whether or
not they heard the chimes of Notre
Dame In their slumbers that night
no mention was ever made of the
fact.
Murdock Bns come next. They
have good camps built, and have
begun grading.
Next names Murphy A Co. Their
work is well under way and they
seem to be making some money.
MoLellan A Co. are next, also
{fading.
Then come Porter Bros.. Neil
Keith, McMaster. J. G. McLean A
Co, O'Leary Bros., snd Welsh A
Jscbetta.
The Landing is a busy place. Upwards of 100 teams come each day
loaded with supplies. Tlie contract
ors, W. H. Armstrong A Co., ars
filling up warehouses at different
points so that when nstds are laid in
the spring they will have their supplies near at hand to do work with.
Peter Bros have the contract t-i haul
all this freight and are perforin in*
their part well.
A semi- weekly stage is run by Mr.
M. G. Btinyaii, which leave*, the
Landing and Kort Steele twice a
week. It is now the chcape-st and
and quickies! way t ��� reach the Fo.t
Steele &iuntry, viz . Itv way of Melton and Kootenay lake, and stage
from the lake.

By the kind permission ol Dr. H.
L. Mclnnls we publish a portion <4 a
letter received by him from a friend
of lib at Dunvegan, Peace river district, who has lived there several
years snd Is thoroughly acquainted
with the country north and west.
The extract read* as follows:
In speaking of the country north
of this (Duiivegnn) I will give vou
what I know about it and 1 have
lived here for eleven or twelve year*
There Is no white man's trail from
here over to the Uard, although perfectly practicable, but there has
hitherto been no incentive to travel
there. Right here at Dunvegan
there are  Indians and h*ilf breeds
i&rd " e\*nk* wlth hor*��- Tlmy

mentioned Hudson's Hope trail "rEE
I cs the river.   Yon roust know, however, that from St. John to this point
on Hallway river there Is a practicable trail for pack   horses.   I have
never heard of any cause why this
overland route should  not be per*
fectlv practicable.   Once at thc foothills there is plenty of feed fbr horses
but in the middle pass there Is very
little for a day or two.   In going bv
the middle paas you would not go by
the Liaid river unices you crossed it
on the west side hevond Iia junction
with the Dense,    the mute deviates
from the air line set down b\ tiaird-
ner A Harrison's map.   but  In my
opinion will be tbe route used.   Ins.
Mo.-die and party went by this peers
ami when last heard from were on
the summit, Dec. 22nd, and with the
probability **f heing at Fort Graham
bvthe  1st of January, nnd from
there a good trail exits* to Sylvester.
1 will mention a route ���alikh dot*
not seem to be receiving an\ attention.   Thi* ia one from \e*t*n*r Slate
lake to  Peace   river creasing,  and
then overland oo tbe north aide of
Peace river.   Thb e><intry  is fine
prsirie land for sixty miles, terminating twenty Ave mites north of Dunvegan, and then on to a point where
Ins. Hoodie left the Wr tm Halfway
river, nd touching Kurt St John at
all, which would   be  fully twent)
miles south.   Then* is no reaann why
r'ort St. John should be i.-oched at
all.   By the  route  from   take St.
Aim kt Fort St. John vou  have tbr
Little  ami   Big Smoky,   the Clear
water, tbe Pine and then the Peace
iver  to cream    All  of  these have
���Mtiks ddiipai-ed   to which   the Sa*
katchewan is a  mere  rut.   Or the
north   route,  that   ia north  of tbe
IV.ice, there  la  not one river with
(���alike   more   formidable   than   the
burgeon at St.   Allien,   and   then
then* are only two.   Vou do not cross
tin* North Iim* river at   all nnlem
you turn  from your dim* euunm
and go ui St. John    After leaving
the Peace tin* Ni-rtb Pine runs manli-
west for eight or ten muV* and then
seems to run pwrallei with the Peace
towards thc Hallway   river but H
���atoii comes te a head.   This ia tht

go Ink* Kort St. John beeauta   thev

nnd Snow la IR* ������ld timd of Shawl.
A double murder and lynching have
cut-red at I'ort Vsktvs, the doorway to
tie Copper River country.   The story
rag brought to Seattle on Wednesday,
sy the steamer Alliance, which arrived
fcrom the north.   Three near graves have
1 seoopetl in Uie ice snd snow on tbe
111! of tbe pea*.   In two ars the bodies of
S'iUsni A. Lee, of Lowell, Maaa.. and
., A. Osll, of Worthington, Minn.   In
tie third s shallow bed apart, is the
Jy oldie murderer.  Millard F. Tan
.tier, a cowboy from Montana, antl around
Hie neck Is tbe tell tale brand of s rota*.
Two simple stones mark  the resting
places of the victims.   Over the grave of
betmaaaaina gnarled tree holds out a
.riant and threatening arm, from whose
twisted wrist dangles s stub of rone.
The murderer and  murdered were
tmiiiers of a party ot 12 Klondike** who
line from Massachusetts in Novembt*r.
Jtnd tmt fitted st Seattle.   While in Seattle ihey picked up "Hoc" M. F. Tanner,
1 Montana cowboy, who, from his fine
physique and ''experience," would likely, it was thought, he a valuable soqutsi
Itbm to the party.  Dissensions, however,
{broke out from the start, and the party
twas divided under rival leaders.   Tanner
[was ohllgid to do muoh ol ths packing,
laud the wilt of tba camp work, reaent-
llng  which,   he  became   troublesome.
IVinsllv. there wss trouble in tbe camp al
p��oH Valdes, on January 2nd. snd the
itieads of the rival jiartie* held a council
sf war, and discussed measure* for getting rid of the obnoxious cowboy.   The
-instillation wss held in s tent, Call,
law, Pierce and   Heine*  being sealed
round a candle; but it wa*unfortunately
nverheard by Tanner, who was standing
In the snow outside.   Angered at the
j*-lot, he hastened to his cabin, and, procuring a revolver, mturnod to the tent,
ind  announced  his  determination   to
^'settle tb* business."
Without a won! Tanner fired at Call,
rho was nearest the door, killing hint
Instantly.     The   cowboy's  next   shot
Eierred the breast ol Lee, with equally
ttal effect. The concussion extinguished the candle, and, in the darkness,
Haines dropped ut the ground and
escaped the third bullet. Pierce bid bc->
hind some boxes, snd the cowboy walked
calmly to a tree to wait the re-appearance of Fierce, who he believed alone
survived.
Haines, however, escaped, and notifying the main camp, a hurried parley wss
held, and Tanner, on being summoned
to do so, surrendered his revolver. He
was st once bound hand and foot, and s
general meeting of prospectors being
called, 38 answered to the call. In the
still watches of sn almost Arctic winter
night, the crime of Tanner was weighed,
with the reault thst immediate execution
wss resolved upon by a vote of 29 to 9,
instead of sending tbe murderer to Sitka
for trial. By the same vote, it was decided the rope should be used, instead of
tbe bullet, and at daylight next morning
Tanner wss strung up to the limb of a
tree, 24 men taking an active part in the
proceedings.
Before the fatal rope was pulled, tbe
doomed cowboy said: "Gentlemen, 1
gue-M you aro doing what is right," and:
" Kememtor, gentlemen, you are stringing up the best man with a six-shooter
that ever came to Alaska or any other
country." 	
LAWIKM   ALASKA.
Washington, Keb.l8.--Secretary Bliss
is iu receipt ol a letter from Governor,
Bradv. of Alaska, descriptive of tbe
lawk*** condiii >n of affairs at Skagway
aad Dyea. It was referred lo at a Cabinet meeting- to-dav, when Alaskan
liffaim were under discussion, and was
considered sufficient justification by the
members for the despatch of the additional military forces already authorix-
,1 to tie sent'to Alaskan territory.
t he following is a ropy of the ietler*.

London, Feb. 8.���The Star, under the
head of "Raid on the Klondike/quoted
an anonymous American correspondent
who -recently arrived in England, as
saying with reference to the relief exit-editions to the Klondike, that those
who are familiar wtth the fact* "knew
that this excuse is as flimsy as Jame
sons desire to relieve the women and
children at Johannesburg ." Continuing
the anon vmous wc respondent says:
"Every American knows this is another Jamesons raid and that the
Americana hitond to keep control of the
Klondike. The Klotidikers hsve already announced thai the stars and
stripes will Ik*, flying at DgrsouCitv by
Julv 4. It would please a large body
ot Americans if tho Klondike could be
made a pretext for war between England and the I'nlted States, which
would result in the annexation of Can
ada."

KOOTKNAV   NKKDS.
Mr. Hume expressed the hope that the jj
member* of the House would do justice I
to Kootenay when Uie estimates were     , w-
More them,   lie predicted thst If the SANDON.
Government adopted a liberal policy in
dealing with the district, thst the present revenue ol the district would bo
mote than doubled. Already the district contributed abont one-half of the
revenue collected, throughout the Pro-
vinee. He cited figures which showed
that the revenue from Kootenay was
���S10.000, as compejed with $264,000 for
the Island, and ftffMNO for the balance
of tbe Mainland. The claims of the district should also be recongnixed when
the Redistribution Bill wss reached.
Kootenay already bad one-fifth of the
population of the Province, Snd Wss
entitled to at least six member*. He
also called attention to the manner in
which the cities of Kootenay. were being harassed by the Provincial Board
qf Health, in regard to the disposal of
their sewage. There were several incorporated cities in the district which
had gone to the expense of putting in
expensive sewer systems, and after completing the same, the cities bad been
warned that they could not use the sewer
systems, because tho Board of Health
would not permit them to drain into the
rivers. He urged the Government to
look into the matter and relieve the cities
from the interference of the Provincial
Board of Health. The common-sense
method of dealing with the sewage question wss to drain the sewage into the
large lakes and rivers. He spoke strongly against the tax imposed by the Government npon working miners, and
asked the Government to explain why,
exceptional treatment was meted out to
tbe quarts miners ss compared with coal
miners.

"Northern men were scarce in Texas

afterwards a Texas ranger, "snd not particularly well liked by the native Texans,

Uie citisens of the city in which I had
taken up my temporary residence.

considerable pride, I displayed my silver-

Tbe gun was passed from hand to hand,
each grizzled deputy looking at it with
the greatest curiosity.
" #hat do you call that, my son?"
ssked a hewiskered ruffianat tb* extreme
end of the bar.
i "That is a, revolver, my friend.". 1 answered, "and one of the best makes in

then asked.
"I have never used it, sir," I answered, "but if necessary, 1 have no deubfl

execution."
"I'll tell you what, my lad," said the
representative of the, law, "I'll stand up

shoot at you. and do not care to get in
any trouble," said I.
i "You needn't be afraid, young feller,

"1 think I'll try it, anyhow," aaid tbe
desperado, taking deliberate aim at me,

WOULD   SPOIL   BUS   FACE,
Things were mightily interesting
last week in and about the Provincial
Assembly Hall when a discussion ot
the official conduct of Messrs. Turner
and Pooley iu their connection with
certain speculative mining companies
-was forced npon the government representatives by the opposition. The
leaders of the government objected
strongly to the discussion going on
and resorted to every method st their
command to silence the months of the
opposition speakers and cat off the
debate. The Hon. Mr. Turner was
twice called down by the Speaker;
he passed the lie once and again resorted to a low personal attack on a
member of the opposition. Hon. Mr.
Pooley was equally as angentlemanly
as his leader. In the coarse ofthe
debate he made tbe threat that if the
Vancouver member of the opposition
(Mr. Cotton) referred to him as a
decoy dock outside of the assembly
chamber he would reply in a manner
which the member would understand.
Mr. Pooley is a large man and has
pugilistic as well as speculative tendencies, and these remarks of his are
taken to mean the he wonld catch
Mr. Cotton on a back alley some dark
night and spoil his face, bruise his
body, and perhaps bite sn ear off.
Messrs. Turner and Pooley have a
very weak case, indeed, when they
will resort to such low tactics as personal abuse and threats of personal
violence. What has been said of
their connection with questionable
speculative mining companies has
been to exonerate tbe good name of
the Province, without regard to their
personal feelings in the matter. It
must be admitted that the discussion
and newspaper criticisms have not
been over complimentary to them,
but that they have richly merited all
that has been said of them in this
connection is abundantly demonstrated by the actions of the gentlemen in the Legislature.
The idea of a Premier passing the
lie in a debate, and being twice
called to order by the Speaker (or
using unparliamentary language is
most distasteful. And for the President of the Council to threaten to
maul an opponent in debate is even
more shocking.
Thb disaster to the United States
warship Maine has brought sorrow to
many an Irish, Swedish and Norwegian home, while in even a few
American families it hag caused the
black emblem of death to be worn by
sorrowing relatives.

KKYKLSTOKK AND TROUT LAKE.
TheWaverley Mine, limited, which
at present hss quarters at Revelstoke
<n a temporary office iu the Cowan
block, intends 10 put up a building in
the summer containing offices for the
eng inner and manager and a board room.
Arrangements have been concluded
by which the Great Western, limited,
h-ve acquired the Nettie L. claim in
well knowu Pool group. i| miles from
Ferguson, The claim has a great showing of galena aud carbonates, rich both
in gold and silver, and very similar in
character to the Silver Cup ore. In fact,
the Pool group is considered by miners
d 5 beiug on the same lead as the Silver
Cup tfroup. Tbe promoters of the com-
pam have purchased the property for
the benefit of the com pan v, which now
rise** in the Great Vvestern and Nettie
both s silver and gold proposition.
Active work will be started on both as
soon a* the season opens. Holders of
tre'iaurv *t*K*k get thi full advantage of
the new- purchase.
The Ka-vidsto'xe Herald is the authority koi* Hie statement that a project is on
foot to build a r tilway from Revelstoke
to Albert Canyin, traversing the valley
of ibe north t irk ofthe llleciilewa* t ami
Dowule creek, and it is not improvable
Utat the grading of this line will be
���mmeuced this summer. The road
would open up a magniticient mineral
t-mannry and would be of incalculable
lt.Mi.-ii-1.�� Revelstoke. It would be the
tirai link of railroad conntctiug between
Ucvelstoke and the Big Bend and Canoe
River country. Not the least satisfactory feature of this scheme Is the fact
tout it promise* to lie carried out without the charter mou��reriug that has
lately lieen too much in evidence in
western Canadian transportation project.- .

A few weeks since three car loads of
sorted ore were shipped from the Vancouver Group Company's claims, Four
Mile, tc the Puget Sound Reduction
works, L.erett. Tbe smelting company's returns give tlie following particulars:. One car load, dry weight,
.10.175 pounds, yielded silver 100 ounces,
lend 57.3 per cent, per ton, returning a
net value of $99,70 per ton or |l,9G&8v
for the car load. Two car loads, dry
weight 7S..150 pounds, yielded silver 15-1.7
ounce* and lead 44.5 per cent, per ton,
returning a net value of fWS.45 per ton
or t3l7<*0>25 for the two car loads. Tht*
quotation for silver was 55% and for lead

the ore shipped as above waa taken.
The ore occurs in chutes in a vein that

BRAT   THK   ROTHSCHILDS.
Montreal, Feh. 10. (Special in Toronto
World.)���For once the Rothschilds, the
famous London hankers, have been
beaten in a mighty struggle to secure a
charter for a Yukon Railway enterprise. The experience for them is said
to be novel. The humble individuals
who seem to enjoy a bigger pull with
the Laurier Government are none other
than Messrs. Mann and McKenzie, who
have secured the contract for building
a narrow gauge road from Telegraph
Creek to Teslin Lake, a distance of
about ISO miles, at a subsidy ef 26,000
acres of mineral land per mile. Members of Parliament, being aware that
the contract was entered into without
tender, will be somewhat startled to
learn that the Rothschilds, while waiving all monopoly, offered to build a railway into the gold region for a subsidy
of 5,000 acres of mineral land per mile,
at least two months before the Mann-
McKenzie syndicate was organized.
Messrs. Hamilton Smith and Henrv
Bratnober, the representatives of the
Rothschilds, are in ths city. Their
principals proposed tor the consideration mentioned above to construct a
railway inland from Pyramid Harbor
via the Dalton trail, a distance of 100
miles, to s point where there is open
navigation down stream to  Dawson
City. The nominal objection that Pyramid Harbor is in Alaska, and that the
road would traverse a short strip ol tie
United States territory, is offset by the
compensating advantages of the Dalton
over the other route thev claim. Pyramid Harbor, it seems, is open lall the
year, and possesses better harbor accommodation thau Fort Wrangel (in American territory), where in any event
future travelers to the \ukon gold
fields via the Stikine River���Manu-Mc-
Kenzle route���will be compiled to
disembark on arrival from Seattle,V an-
couver or Victoria. Access to the projected railway can only be had by
traversing United State* territory, unless the railwav is extended a UX) mil**
further southward from the Stikine
River to the nearest harbor in British
territory. The mouth of that river, of
course,*is in American territory, hut
Canadians have an equal right to navigate it. , ,
The Rothschilds, after a i-arefuaex-
amination or every available route by
their engineers and explorers last summer, came to the conclusion, all things
considered, that the Dalton route was
the best and shortest route, even if it
did cross a short strip of American ler
ritory. The proposition to build a line
starting from a point on the British t'o-
lumbia seaboard was scarcely considered, as, owing to the international
boundary, which for a loug distance
follows the sinuosities of the coast at a
distance <��( :{o miles therefrom, the railways would have to start at a point
several hundred miles south of the
mouth of the Stikine River.
Any such railway in conjunction with
tbe 150 miles to be built by the Mann-
McKenzie syndicate, together with ��
link representing the distance approximately from the mouth of the Stikine
River to Telegraph Creek, would represent over 600 mites of railway���an impossible scheme if the rapid and ea redevelopment of the Klondike region is
taken into consideration.
The Rothschild*, having reached the
conclusion that the terminus of any
projected railway would have te reach
tidewater, gave Pyramid Harbor th��-
preference. The engineers reported
adversely on the navigability of the
Stikine in summer, and its utter tttt*
lessness in winter. It is the onlv route
by which the Mann-McRenzie llaiJw-,,,
can be reached. The engineers of the
Rothschilds report that the Stikine River
is navigable for about two months in tin-
year. There are enormous Hoods in
the spring, with water so low in August
that shallow steamboats have to wear
"legs" to assist them over the sand
bars- In canoes, while going up the
stream, five days were occupied in
going 90 miles. '"Lining" and towing
were resorted to at 20 places in one day

Montreal, Que., Feb. IA.���William
McKenzie, who is associated with Mr
Mann iu the new Canadian route to the
Klondike, is here on his way to Kngland
in connection with the franchise of the
Birmingham tramway, which is to be
converted into an electric railway. Re
(erring to the reports of Mr. Maun'i
inability to charter steamers on the
Pacific coast, the threatened hostile
American bonding regulations at
Wrangel, and the opposition contract,
he said: "We have no occasion to
worry over any over any of these
affairs. My contract is signed and 1
see no reason to doubt that it will be
ratified by parliament.
"Too much is being made af unfriendly American legislation. I believe,
everything will be arranged amicably
In any event Canadians have the rJirht
to build entirely in Canadian territory "
McKenzie repeated that the contract
was more or less a speculation, as the
valneof the land grant Is problematical,

The Great Grab.
From whichever way the bargain
of the Teslin lake railway may be
viewed it looks like a bad business.
Tlie selfish spirit pervading members
ot parliament from eastern Canada
in supporting tills deal for the ao!*
reason that no money grant is made
is very reprehensible. Apparently
land that does not grow wheat or
turnips is useless and may be given
away to the-first who asks. It may
be pointed oat that the gold taken
from the Klondike last year was
t anal In value to folly half Uie whoh*
wheat crop of Manitoba. Then, tuo.
1897 was but the first year the di*>
triet was opened while Manitoba ha>
been cultivated almost twenty years.
The area which produced this vast
amount of gold was probably tut*
more than 100,000 acres. It i- not
reasonable to suppose that aii tin-
gold region has own l-i-a-pceted, in
fact only a very small portion of it
has. In the selection of their mineral grant of milling lands the con
tractors can, by sending skilled prospectors, as they have* the means ot
doing, can secure to much, that with
the alternate sections reserved to tin
government, there will he notion*.
left for the prospector.
The railway will thus result r*
serve a territory who.** only source
of wealth will be in pMie-tsiufi of.the
owners ot that rtilwsy. No estim.-ite
can be made of tlie aiuouur of g*M
that northern country Mill produce.
Imt sufficient is known to make eer
tain that the amount is very large.
When McKenzie and Mnn it have
sent their men into thst district ami
located SJ.TO.OOO acres of mineral
land what will be left for the pros
pector? Nothing that would indoor
him to bear the rigors of the climate
to find. All his time wonld he spent
keeping clear of the limit*, ofthe
government reserve. The mineral
resources are part of the as*****!*, ofthe
Dominion tor its 1*1 -|>lt��. but now
when the railway is nir.pletetl and
the lands selected all that will hi*
left for the people of Camt ia will bt*
a chance for a few of th.-m to get a
job with the millionaire and exhibit
patriotic entlmsiasm over a j��ik-

Another Infliction.
The Knskonook Searchlight is die
title given to a paper which was
published for the first time in Knskonook on Feb. 22. We f��X'h��xtrcinely

lhat rising yoong town tit the head

may be up-to-date newspaper men,as
tbey say, of large experience, bat
should have spared the residents of
that burg for a time ani wreaked
their vengeance on a community in
a better posit* hi to hold up under
such a trying ordeal. Bnt such is
tbe way of this wicked world, and
townsite boomers are always reach-
to spring any old thing in tbe line of
a newspaper that will serve as a
booster for them in extracting collateral frern the tenderfoot, who has an
idea that a town lot in a western

back steps ef a second-elass hotel in
order to Veep up his payments.

t The local agricultural journal Ib
agitating for a scale of lower wago*.
tot municipal employees The elderly gent from the hay districts of
Bruce is probably thinking of his old
home and forgets that people do not
reside in Sandon for their health. As
he runs a scab newspaper be cannot
bear to see other people get a fair
price for their labor, and it would
not surprise us to *-ee him advocating
a reduction in miners' wages. Low
wages in a mining camp simply
means commercial suicide for the
community.
We notice signs of mental aberration in the editor of Sandon'�� scab
newspaper. In a recent editorial it
wants to bet us $��*. This is a sad
