To Be Orgsnised in Time to Plsij
the Incorporation March.
The project of a town band has been in the
air ever ��inc* tbe tine display made by the
New Denver boys here on Jubilee day. It had
been talked of before that, bat only in an in.
tridental, inferential manner. Like every*
thiiiR el*e It nee lei w.mebody^* start it. The
Paystreak took up tbe subjget durinic ibe
week, and i* *nrpri*ed to And so much good
material here out of which to form a first*
class band, no many food mtuicians who
would be glad of aa opportunity to display
thair proficiency, and so many, too, who
wonld be gbtd to learn instrumental manic, in
the practical way tbat an organ wed Land afford*.
Having plenty of performers to chooste from
tbe nest questiun is to raise tbe money to buy
the instruments. It was at first proposed to
do this by public *t_b_cription, but the hat is
always going romnd for some purpose or another. The better idea, and the one that will
probably be adoptad, is to get up a concert for
the purpose. Then people will get their
money** worth aad the promoters of the enterprise wttl only be out their time and services. It is propoted to have a band of U or 14
piece*. *ay four cornet*, two alto*, two tenors.
one baritone, one B fiat ha**, one tuba, one
ha** drum, one *uare drum. These instrn-
meut. will cost from tdt* to ****-*��� i.
On Monday evening a meeting of those in-
t**r**.ted will be held at Spencer's snd during
tbe#ar��k a first class programme of in*tru-
a-tautal and vocal mimic wiU ha arranged���
one that wiU *ui-pri*e people at tha amount
of first cla*w> mntkicjil talent there is in the
city- This programme triU ba given In next
we*k**'|��AVsr_su_.witti the daw*.- b*/*-��n-
and Mrs. Thomas Levi at the bnlf way house.
Tbe party brought banket*, nnd although they
took the house entirely unn*a*sres, were received with a royal w**deorne. singing nnd
dancing were on tlU long after midnight. Besides Mr, snd Mr*. Levi and their three eons,
Edmonfi, William and Casper, there were
present Mis. D. Dockstader, Mrs. George Gordon, Mrs, D. Bongnrd, Mtss.Rheta Giles, Mint

notoriety aa a mind reader, gave an exhibition of his powers here on Thursday eveninir,
before a small audience In Spencer's ball.
It was a clever pet-Torn lance, as tat as It went,
but it went no further than the so culled test*
of these mind or muscle leaders for the****
many years. Tyndall started In with n free

In returning drove the wagon unto the sidewalk and spilled out thr committee.

After a Two Months' Trip Among
the Eastern Capitalists.
John M. Harris, president of the
Reeo and owner of tin* townsite, returned to town on Tuesday, and has
been an exceed ing\y busy mail eVer
since. The friends of incor*.*oration
have been anxiously ex'reetiiur him
everv dav for t**.��.. weeks, and after
yreetiiuje Thk I'aystkf.ak proceed
<tl to sound him on this iiiijtortant
''It is one of those measures that
men in my position naturally dread
and fight aa long as they can. ' he
said. "But 1 am tn favor of it. Xo
matter how high I may be taxed
when the city is incorporated, it will
not cost me more than it does now.
I am interested in ererythiu'r that
tends to the progress of Sandon, and
have made up my mind that incor-
���a.ration is a step in Ihe right direction. The government has given us
so little for tlie taxes we pay. and
when incorporated we can spend our
own money on necessary improvements.
*'We are in an exeeedinglv good
position for ineor*H.ratfou. We have
already a gtxtd water and an electric ifght system, and would not
need to go into debt, as have most
new eities to provide those necessaries. In fact, I do not see any reason why Sandon should go intodel.t-
whv the town should be bonded for
B cent."
Mr. Harris left here ou May llth.
and has since visited Winnipeg. Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal, Itoston,
Xew York and Washing!**!. D. C.
He also spent a month at his old
home in Fauquier county, Virginia,
and while there purchased an adjoining farm.
While in Ottawa visiting the government buildings Mr. Harris met
many men interested in mining, and
also in Toronto and Montreal. ''The
men of the Canadian cities:*' -said
Mr. Harris, ''seemed to be fairly familiar with this country already,
and they are satisfied that it is* a
good country. Tbe bottom has
dropped out ofthe cheap stock speculations, and they are now ready
for substantial investments. I had
offers from several men who were
ready to buy good-sized mining
properties, from **?50tGG0 up, and
nave no doubt quite a deal of eastern
capital will rind its wav hen* thi*
'i first noticed the great inactivity in bopfaess generally on tlte other
side. In Xew York, the brokers ��>f
Wall street t����ld me that all the hu*.i-
ness men, big and lirtie, akmg
Br*, idway are anxiously concerned
as to how they can asset their rent-.,
profits l**ing apparently out of th**
**In Washington City I found a
remarkable dullness in real estate,
with prices. ��'���*) per cent, below what
they were twelve years ago. Farm
lands in Virginia have fallen at
least 75 i*?r cent. I embraced the
opportunity and bought the (arm adjoining our homestead for ttl.UQH
cash. This was at the rate of ��*!.'*)
per acre, while for that same land
twelve years ago not less than $101)
per acre would have been considered."
"Will you go there to UveY'
"Oh, no*  I shall stay in Handon.
I bought it for  an  investment and
think it a good one.
"I experienced the hot weather in
Chicago and Denver, and there were
many deaths front -unstrrkr the ***���
davs I was there. The people there
claim that Denver is as prosperous
as anv citv in the country, bm when
1 was told that some of thecarpen
ters and bricklavers were working
as low as |1 to tl.25aday, Icon
eluded that it must be pretty bad.
The mines of Cripple Creek are producing gold in good quantity, and
it was stated at the gold convention
that Colorado in 18.HJ hatl turned out
from her mine** 935 ]*er bead IV*r
every man. woman and child in the
state, so that her people need not
bother about there being enough
monev and to sjtare. There seemed
tobeaome doubt as to the real object of this ��-on\vMion, but the Colorado pt* ��le wed it to show to the
world the richness of Colorado's gold
mines, ami to demonstrate that that
was the state to invest in."
"What do vou think of a Sloven
silver association, such as was *ug-
gested in the Xew Denver Lcdge-r*
"It would undoubtedly attract at*
teiition Hi the eountrv. but tin* Denver peo|>le claim that their great
Mollie Gibsmi mine has l**cn of somt*
injury to the silver question, from
the fact that tbe ore is so rich that
people have come to believe that silver can be dug up just like mttatoes.
i saw some of tin* Mollie UiWm ore
being Shipped. It b put up in small
boxes, each box Mug sealed.
"I do not know whether a Slocan
silver association might not have a
similar effect to that charged to the
Mollie Gibson, and give the idea
that silver can Is* produced ao easily
and cheaply. That is, to the eastern people who are not familiar with
silver inining. They do not hear
anything a is tut low grade mines that
are Iteing worked on an extremely
narrow- margin. Titer** is an immense amount of capital invi*s*tt*d in
silver mines in the* I'nited States
that are not working at all.
"While away evervthiug seems
to ha vt* gone on all right here, ami I
have enjoyed my trip very much.
We are now going to spend fftrOOto
giv* Sandon better fin" protection.
We shall have three perfect Systems;
on*- fr.��m Tributary creek, the pn**-
ent water system; one from Sandon
creek, the water being bronght down
to increase She power of the electric
lisrht plant; and one from Garpeuter
creek that will be used for com***titrating *mi*fMwe*. Hydrantr. will la-
connected with al) of these svsteiiia.
This work will Is* carried out 'whether the city is incor{��.rated or not."

Napoleon's prediction that within a
century all Europe would be either Republic or Cossack, does not appear to be
within measurable distance of verification. Eighty-five years have elapsed
since he uttered this famous vaticination
and Europe is still neither one nor the
the other. No doubt democracy has
made wonderful strides since the great
Emeral went to his sea-girt prison at St.
elena; but the outburst of popular
feeling at the Jubilee shows how firmly
the monarchical spirit is still anchored
in the bosom of Europe's most powerful
and progressive nation, while Russia's
strength is that merely of population,
with the merest veneer of modern progress and civilisation covering the uncouth masses who people her enormous
expanse of territory.
No doubt the population of Russia
today exceeds by two and a half times
that of German*/ and is ��� three times as
large as that of France or the United
Kingdom. Moreover, while the population of France is stationary and that of
Germany and Austria increasing only
slowly, the natural increase of the Russian people is phenomenally rapid. This
means an enormous supply from whence
the Russian army can be recruited, and
if it were only the quantity and not tlie
quality of the men that decided battles
no single European nation would dare to
cope with her. Fortunately for Europe
the Russian Empire is composed ofa
mass of ignorant Slavonic, Tartar and
other Asiatic races, formidable only from
their numbers, and incapable of that
scientific warfare which decides the fate
of empires today. Houey-combed with
corruption, badly led and worse paid
and fed,, the Russian Army is of more
avail ss a menace than as a fighting
weapon. On paper she can put a colossal
army into the field. But, thanks to the
system upon��which it is modelled, a
Russian army in the field is rarely one-
third of the size it attains on the muster-
rolls, and even that third is destitute of
the proper commissariat and ambulance
arrangements. In old days when wars
were matters of years, and important
battles were months apart, this was not
not of so much importance ss it is today
when campaigns are a matter of a few
weeks onlv. But today an army must
take the field ready to move at a moment's notice, and, unless the Russian
army has materially improved its system
since the Turkish campaign, it might be
hopelessly beaten long before its unwieldy masses of ignorant peasant soldiery could be concentrated on the crucial
point. Russia is strong only in the material sense. There is little perceptible
evidence that her people are becoming
broadened from an intellectual standpoint, and siuce the warfare of the present century is essentially scientific and
requires a large measure of education
and intelligence in even the rank and
file, tlie Russian army is formidable only
when opposed to the still progressive
The over-running of Europe, therefore,
by tbe Cossack may safely he relegate*,
to the category of chimera*. Even with
the assistance of a more educated ally it
would hardly be poc-wible; for tlie Anglo-
Saxon race is a factor that Slavic and
Tartar peoples have always found it difficult to negotiate. Even when practically tin* whole forces of Europe were
handed under the greatest general, that
ever lived, Great Britain was able to
stein his tide of conquest and form the
nucleus upon which the array which
ultimately drove him from tlie throne
was glad to concentrate, Is there, then,
any cause for apprehension lest the
Anglo-Saxon race be dominated by the
Slav ? Leaving out the assistance of the
remainder of the Anglo-Saxon race in
Canada, the United States, Australia
and tlie other colonies, it is Impossible
to lielieve that an ignorant and semi-
barbarous race could overwhelm one
whose name is synonym for intellectual
and physical activity. Such an event
would be in direct contradiction to all
the lessons of history. In every instance
the nation of the higher intellectual and
moral calibre has proved the victor over
even the larger masses of its lower grade
adversary, and there is no reason why
such a law should be reverted in the
nineteenth century. So long as Russia
retains her proper position as the most
western of the eastern nstions she is s
factor to be reckoned with. When she
is regarded as the most eastern of the
western nations she becoines less formidable. As Carlyle has aptly pointed mt,
a people which still wears lis shirt on
the outside of its trousers cannot pretend
to swav the destinies of Europe, its influence must necessarily be inimical to
constitutional liberty, and the days
of political serf dom are long since over.

of this revenue, $1,925,000, and the rest

SANDON. B. C, JULY 24, 18S7.
TftE movement for a wagon road
from here to New Denver did not at
first meet with a favorable consideration, and subscriptions therefore
came in slowly. There were people
who said that it would undoubtedly
"be a good thing for New Denver, but
they did not tee how it could help
Sandon, that in fact it must have the
contrary effect People with such
narrow-mindedly selfish views have
no place in any progressive common
ity. They would have a wall around
Sandon t*> keep all possible customers
in and all business rivals out
Intercommunication always means
an increase of business, and as a rule
the larger community must reap tbe
benefit of the balance of trade thus
encouraged. Every city that has
grown to any proportions has done
so by aid of tbe outlying districts for
which it has become tbe base ot
supplies. Sandon itself has grown
and is growing because ofthe devel
opmont of the mines in her vicinage.
As the mining industry extends, as
the country is opened up, Sandon
should endeavor to maintain her
place as the centre, and increase her
tributaries of trade in every possible
direct-ion and as far as possible. Thin
csn only be done by producing facilities for rapid and convenient communication. The first great need of
any new country is roads
Bat nays the one-idead objectors,
we hare the railroad. What do we
want w*th a wagon road paralelling
it? This is one of the strongest objections raised snd one of the most
ridiculous They migbt ss well have
said: We have a trail; what do we
want with a railroad ? Go Into the
United States, in parts of the country
grid-ironed with railroads, and what
do yon find among those progressive
people ? A constant demand tor more
and better roads
Sandon is today, so far as the large
and rapidly growing Slocan lake district which should be tributary to
her, is concerned* is entirely at the
mercy of one railroad, which, in the
absence of sll competition, can give
whatever kind of service it please?
and make Its charges to suit itself. It
may be blocked with snow or delayed by washouts lor days and days,
and during that time business with
the outside is entirely suspended.
A good wagon road from here to
New Denver would bring down
freight charges; it would  give us
chance fur the poor man who cannot
afford to pay fares; to the small merchant who can use a team to advantage ; to tbe large merchant who can
use many teams and to whom expedition In delivery ot goods is ofthe first
consequence. It would open up and
enlarge the trade of Sandon in every
There is another point for consideration that is entirely overlooked.
The people of Sandon have no where
to walk or to ride. How many more
horses would be used il there were a

On the other hand New Denver has
the lake and the steamers fbr her
Sunday outings and is altogether better situated for healthful outings.
But her people want to come skipping
to the Slocan metropolis. They now
come by one train ami have but a
brief three hours tn which to look
around and do their bu*.im***s. From
the many huge mines on the hills
-.round Hlocan lake there are hundreds of men who t-ccaslonally desire
a day off and would come to the metropolis to seek relaxation. There is
no way of doing so in a single day as
things are at present
But build % good substantial wagon
road over tlte route surveyed, see
the number of pedestrians and people
on horseback and In vehicles incress-
ing, as it undoubtedlv would, from
day to day. See the wagon loads ot

Those opposed to the road are those
wbo say openly:    "Sandon   is  big
enough.''   It Is strange that such tin
progressive  people can live in the
bustling atmosphere of the Slocan.
The first lawn mower ever seen at
work in Sandon was chawing up the
grass on Assayer Wilson's lawn on
Monday, and was watched with some
curiosity. Some ot the onlookers
actually sighed. It brought up memories ol places where lawns are not a
curiosity. In a mining camp Hie
advent of the lawn mower is slgnifl

from rough shacks to comfortable
homes, the beginning of a substantial

Wc visited the Blocan Star mine
last week, and it le a star beyond a
doubt. It should have been called
sun, instead ol star, for it hi the daddy
ot all the mines in tbe district up to

certainty of good times in the Slocan.
Lighting a candle we enter the
tunnel and r*o our best to keep on the
vlank in the centre of the tramway.
The candle only makes the darkness
visible and finally retires from active
service ttm��ugh tbe airency of a
splash of water. As we get nearer

and watch the grim figures of the
men at work with drill and hammer,
it puts us in mind of what hell would
look like without the brimsttaie and
tire. In this tunnel, 400 feet from ? he

Sandon, 11 C. THE   PAfSTREAK.
Rossi, a so, July 17.���Rowland Miners'
Union was very emphatic yesterday on
tlie occasion of its annual picnic. The
rain came down straight, as it never had
rained befere. A procession started
from the Masonic hall at 11 a. m. headed
by tlie Rossland brass band and a couple
of carriages containing Mayor Scott and
some of the leading officials of the. different unions. The sxjcieties represented
were the Typographical Union, Xo. 335;
Ctgarmakers' Union, So. 400; Tailors'
Union, No. 2S2; and Xo. 38, Miners*
Union. The procession was quite a
long one, reaching several blocks on
Columbia avenue. At the ball grounds
there were speeches made by M. Powell, chairman; Mayor r-cott, Dt. Sinclair,
J. M; Martin, J. F. McCrae, Speaker
Higgins, W. J. Walker, organiser of the
' Knights of Labor; and Ed. Boyce, president of the Western Federatiou of Miners. The rain continued to descend and
tlie programme of athletic sports was
only carried out in the afternoon in tlie
-intervals between the showers. A ball
in the opera house closed the picnic.
The Daily Miner has reduced its size
to six columns. This, it states, is done
to "avoid bankruptcy." Only three
regular compositors are now employed,
two cases having been laid off within a
week or two. The Weekly Miner is also
reduced a column in sue and is only
eight pages, instead of sixteen, a reduction of more than one-half. The proprietors are advertising the sale of 100 lbs.
of "new nonpareil, never unpacked."
ThiB looks "hard times" for Corbin's
sheet, and I don't think there is any
great amount of sympathy forthcoming
for the owners or the editor���especially
tlie editor, who has bad a "largely
puffed-up head" on a very small body
liecause of the success the paper attained some time back. This success was
due to the fame of Uie camp, its mines,
and the desire of the public to know all
there was to kuow, and not on account
of any exceptional abilities displayed by
tbe editor.   But  he  took  the papers
Erosperity as being entirely his doing.
le was the chief journalist in Trail
Creek (in his own estimation) and he
strutted the streets with the air of a
Bantam cock. He has said that "Any
man who does not do well in Kowiami
must be lacking in ability." He does
not appear to be doing very well just
now, but he will never admit tt is on account of any lack of ability.
The Kosslatider comes out in a dinin-
nitive form this week. I don't think it
will live long in its present shape, but 1
do think that Bre'r Jones lias made another mistake. Mr. Vaughn, wbo succeeded J. C. Crome a couple of months
ago as partner in the Rosslander, is out
���"froze out" he says. But the fact is,
business dropped off and someliody had
to go. 1 still think there ia room in
ltossland for a really good newspaper.
The peculiar complaint from which
the Bossland papers are suffering just
now does not appear to have reached
Xew Denver. The Lkm.k is a credit to

considerable praise of it during tbe (Mist
An erratic effusion appeared in tlie
Rossland Miner of Thursday in the form
of a two column article with the startling heading, "Is Rossland Betrayed?"
The text of this outburst is simply that
there is no probability of the Canadian
Pacific Railway running into Bossland
for two years. I have read the article in
question .carefully, and cannot see a
���ingle point made. Either the author
(evidently the editor) is grossly ignorant
or else he is trying to create a false sentiment in favor ofthe Le Roi company's
smelU'r-townaite scheme at Northport.
Even the most sanguine have never
ho'ied that such a gigantic enterprise as
the Crow's Nest  Pass j^ilway could  lie
completed and tbe roA tields opened up
so as to facilitate smelting o*>erations m

Several fractions near the city have
been sold for cash during Uie week. The
prices have Iveen from IS500 upwards,and
a considerable amount of money has
changed hands in this way. Several
parties have also staked fractions within
a mile or two, and fraction hunting has
become quite general. As tin* time for
aitsesstnent work draws near then* are
several claims being offered for sale at
extremely low Jigurer*. some of inero at
less than "one-half the money asked for

S. R. Reid has sent about 400 pounds
of very fine specimens of Trail Creek one

Uie "slump" which seems to have overwhelmed so many of the hastily-got* to-

have lieen able to get no further than to
issue a pros|iectus and appoint dif*Wtora

Rome forcible statements regarding
tlie relations of geology to miniug were
recently made in a lecture delivered by
Reginald Murray, who for 30 years was
s government geologist in the mines de-
paiiment of Victoria.
Mr. Murray referred to the fact that
hut a few years ago Uie geologist was not
in favor with the miner, hut that feeling
has changed. This is evident to all iter-
sons i-otinecteil with the mining industry, but Uie feeling against the geologist
is nut entirely eradicated among miners,
eveu if Uiere'is a great change for the
better.   A* Mr. Murray said:
"The geologist collects bin facts from
Uie miner, and from hit more extended
range- of oltt*ervation, he is enabled to
reason with greater accuracy than Uie
miner with-a more limited'experience
tun hope to, however intelligent he mav
When this is remembered it can readily tie fieeti that tlie miner antl geologist
can mutually trust and assist one an-
oUier. In support of this Mr. Murray
said: "Every great mining field presents its own peculiar features. The
miner accustomed to the Silurian slates
and sandstones of one mining region
doe* not at tirst think much of the auriferous quality of Uie recent volcanic
rocks of anoUier region, which mav contain rich quarts veins. A knowledge of
the elementary principle* of geology cannot fail to lie of great service to every one
enguged in mining. Ttiisdoes not imply
that ne should la* familiar with a lot of
uiipnituviiinceal.le name*, but simply a
general knowledge of the conditio,
under which these rocks have been formed, the various operating forces, mechanical or chemical gradual or sudden, and
the general relation of one group of rocks
to another. Many miners, Uioroughly
good and experien'ceil in practical works,
entertain roost crude ideas as to the
operating cause* of the phenomena
which they encounter. For instance,
thev often'aserits* u> violent action a
physical structure which is simply due
to denudation."
Such assumptions are so misleading as
to materially affect the sttm-ss of a mit -
iug venture. Therefore, Uie opinion of
a man with some knowledge of geology
is essential, if the miners want more certainty in their work tiian is ptvwble
when one is de|>cnded upon.

About ten miles north of Nakusp and
about ten miles from the lake several
claims have recently been staked upon
a wide ledge traceable for over five
miles. Assays from some of the properties show considerable silver.
The Alamo concentrator at Three
Forks was started up again last Saturday, and is now running ore from the

The Comstock, Mable. .Scottish
Chief and Sandon are four placer
claims in active operation right at
our doors. The claims adjoin one
another and extend 1000 feet down
the creek, commencing from the
western line of Harris' townsite,with
a width of 500 feet on each side of
the center of the creek. The locations were made April 14,1897, by

boxes have been put in, with iron
plates in the bottom puctured toll of
small holes end cross soctioned with
inch and a half wood underneath to
catch the mineral deposits that are
left froni the gravel and sand washing through. Several tons have
been saved in this manner, mostly
tine galena and carrying some gold.
The work had U> be stopped when
high water came, but will be commenced again as soon as the high
water receoes. Cubes of coarse galena are found plentifully mixed all
through the gravH. andkhe matter

Editor Paystreak:
I read in the New Denver Ledge
last week a thoughtful article sug-
gesting the formation of a Slocan
silver association on similar lines or
for similer objects to those of the
gold mining astMicuttton of Colorado,
(have no new ideas to convey on
the subject. I entirely agree with
the writer that it would be a great
thing for the Slocan. It would make
the district known, and it could also
be used aa a club on the heads of
those members of the legislature who
are always meddling and marring
the mining interests of Kootenay.
All the suggestion I would make
ahout it is that I shall beglad to Join,
but sorry if tbe thing is started and
located at New Denver. That la
why I write to vou. Sandon is the
place. Oet somenodv like Harris or
Bruce White, or Scott McDonald, or
Fields of the Wonderful, to call a
meeting.   TII be there.

Cunning Goes Prospecting
Robert Cunning returned on Monday from a three days trip up
Springer creek and talks enthusiastically of that section. He spent
wume time on Tom Mulvey's property, the Ottawa, and says it is a grent
trt-oposition. Only surface work has
been done so far* but a large body
of ore carrying pure stiver has been
uncovered, and three tpHads are being started. Mr. C-Mfting located
two claims, which are on an extension of the Ottawa lead, and called
them the Nortbup and the Flint.

The eoiutruetfon of the Pavne
tramway waa let on Monday to'the
well known contractors; Messrs. Foes
A McDonell. It is to be a three-rail
gravity tram and built for the most
S.rt on trestles, similar to the Slo-
n Star, but it will be flOOO feet
long and its maximum grade is 00
per cent. It will come down the
Payne gulch and strike the K. A S.
railroad near the water tank, over a
mile from Sandon.   In all probabil-
���jp*-. .
Ity it wtll also be continued to the C.
I* k tracks.
Foes A McDonell have put on a
force of 50 nun and contracted to
complete tlu- work by October I.  ,
E. J. Rohert-jou .v, Co. will build a
two-storv warehouse in the fork between the two creeks, near the K. A
S. railroad.
Ira Black is contemplating an addition to the rear of his hotel, now
that the creek has been cribbed,
that will add 20 sleeping room*.
Assistant Inspector Fraxier was in
Sandon Wednesday to look' over the

of a Calgarv horse, Fox, which he
seems to have great faith in, but
when he was called by the backers

his faith was not sufficient or he waa

Prom Trout Lake.
A. (i. Minter waa down from the
Trout Laki* country this week. He
has located the None Such, atttnin-
Ing the Mobile on the north side of
tbe lake, about four miles from
Trout Lake City. He reports between four and Ave hundred prospectors in the country, and four out
of five are from tht* Slocan. The
Home-Payne company have surveyed a route fbr >n electric tram
from Galena hey on Arrow lake to
Ferguson and are poshing work on
Prom Three Forks to Boar Lake.
The C. P. R. surveyors started In
Wednesday morning on the wagon
road from Three Forks to Mdiuigan
and Bear Lake. The distance ht
five to six mites. The work will bo
pushed and it is evidently the intention of the railroad to make a *trong
effort for the rapidly growing Misi-
ness of this important seetion.
Three Forks will be greatly benefitted. 	
la Sandon Healthy?
The Sandon undertakses will have
to advertise. Since the first of the
year one child has died a natural
death and one man was brutight to
a lowly bier by too high living. The
three men killed in the Three Forks
land slide and the accidental death
at Md iuigan'�� make up the total
mortality returns of the district. No
wonder tbe doctors of the town are
such good tennis players.
