A part of thin Section that has
been more or lea** neglected for the

owing to the confidence of tiie parties owning property there, rapidly

It is estimated that the neee*

Tha Patience of the People of Sandon
Pretty Nearly Exhausted.
How long are tbe people of Sandon to stand the inefficient mail
service? The postmaster here waa
ready ami willing on the first inst.
to distribute the mail and waited
at tbe postotlice most of the day
for ti.at purpose, iu tbe mid&t of a
clamoring crowd of indignant
citizms. but te�� mail was ferfh-
couiing. notwithstanding the fact
that loth trains arrived hero on
that day. It is understood that
<>. T. Stone, of Kaslo, has the
contract for deliver.ng mails here
from that end. \Ye speak of cause
subject to correct ou. The reason
why a gentleman of,Kaslo should
have a Contract for delivering
mails at Sandon. we should like to
be advised on, ii.fact we want to
know why tlte contract is not
given to the local official here? It
is nothing short of a positive outrage the way the Sandon people
are treated. We understand there
is a penalty under tbe terms of tbe
contract for not delivering mails
It is to be hoped that this penalty
will ! o rec"vereffln due Course and
further the contract wilb the
Kaslo gentleman meutioiied will
be at once cancelled and tbe contract given to a local man here
who will attend lo it. Tin* out-
going mail was not calle I for by
the mail contractor at the post-
office, although only put up b>
th������ p-��stiiia-ter and left lo fas call*
ed foi according to instructions.
There is no town of the sine of
Sandon iu Canada which has as
large a mail and the amount expended iu stamps alone h< re is
verv considerable. The citizen*,
as a rule are people of average iu-
tclligence and tlic treitment a<-
iirded them SO far in thi�� emmec.
tiou is such as will not be lightly
|ja****d over.
We should strongly recommend
that an indignation meeting be
m-ld at once and resolutions passed
in regard to the matter and forwards! to Mr. Boetock, who, wt
believe is fully alive to the out*
rages, at present, being perpetrated bv the government Oil this long
-utiVring community in connection with the nn.il service. Several men came iu yesterday, long
distance-^ from mines around here,

What a happy country the
Slocan will be when we cau get
mail from Nelson in less than live
days, when we can ride to I>enver
in a sleigh or wagon, when we get
a gold commissioner who.is on to
his job. and a government who has
sense enough to appoint such a
one. Verily, when we arrive at
this happy state of things,
Utopia will be a poor proposition
when cnmpaied with it.
With all Saudon's push and enterprise, with all its up to .iateisin
it still lacks many things ol being
an ideal place to live iu. For instance, no one would think to read
the local papers that we had a
barbershop, a furniture store, a
sawmill, a bakery or any of these
adjuncts that go to provide for the
uecessories and luxuries of life.
Ptut we hnve'afl these things
,U jpa. r... .j rjo-| (a to infuse ;i
tie enterprise and pub'-. - sp!rKed
ness in these people bo sa to ii:
duce them to let tbe outside world
know they sre here, and not keep
the good news all to themselves,
when we do that we will bavea town
that approaches nearer the ideal
than anything we can think of at
Wk have never cherished the
fondest regret for John Chinaman
and have always maintained that
we could manage to worry along
without him. And we entirely
agree with the people of the Slocan
when they say that if we allow
one of them to locate among us, it
will be only the forerunner of
hundreds of his pig-tailed brethren.
Let us keep them out by every
legitimate means in our power but
do not resort to violence, coercion
in our free land is a very poor
policy to resort to in order to obtain the desired end. We are all
agreed that the Chinaman is a
poor citizen, we can go further
and say that be is a parasite, and
as such should be prohibite 1 from
entering the country. That is the
point���prevent hitn from landing
by placing the tax at a prohibitory figure.    It  we are  truly   in
terested in this tp'stion, we will all
work towards that end. for that is
the true solution of tbe Chinese
We want to draw the attention
of our readers to a ver* important question. Have you got a
vote? and if so, is your name orj
the list?    Now, this is a   question
of the fust Importance io peopii
In the Kootenay. If you are en
titled to a vote in the Slocan and
are registered elsewhere, see to it
that your name is transferred.
If we ever expect to get justice,
or what we are clearly entitled t<
in tbe nature of government assistance in our endeavors to develop this country, we can only secure it by means of our franchise
if the present government won'i
assist us let us put in one thai
will. And this can not be don��
by neglecting our right-, the right
of every Canadian who baa reach'
ed the age of manhood, to have a
voice in the government of his
country. If we neglect thftj im-
[xirtant point, then have we no
business to kick when tilings do
not come our way. If we do not
look after our own rights, we cannot in common justice expect
other people to attend to them for
us. Tbe world has never yet
la-en overburdened with philan
ropists and this purt of it is no
Sptfcea to the rule.
A viTHKkyear has passed, another year with its history of triumphs
achieved, of hardships borne, if
the worring. excitement, and restless endeavor of a mining camp.
Another.station made on the tor-
tuoiis rraii of human existence of
national itn|M>rtanee. fast year
great things were predicted of the
Slocan and well I��r* it repaid the
confidence fitn -vople. Although
the progress inftde during tbe past
ye.ar has been truly remarkable.
still had we had the assistance and
co-operation of the government its
present degree of prosperity and
development would have been
greatly augmented. Our present
condition of prosperity is all due to
tbe energy of the prospector and
the confidence of the investor.
Last year the government derived
a revenue of over S'.i.OOO from tbe
Denver office alone, this year that
amount will be largely exceeded,
add to this the revenue received
from tbe tax on the smelter re-
turns of the many snipping mines
of the Slocan and you w ill have a
very considerable sum. A stranger
to tbe curious ways of our own
particular   brand    of    legislative
tenderfeet would sax:   "Of course
vou get a return for this amount
paid int��> the Provincial treasury,
as for instance, roads, trails, facilities for tbe Speedier transacting
of business, etc., etc." Notl ing of
the kind .stranger, our government
ha;�� other views for the expenditure of tbe money, if they gave any
money to help develop this conn,
ttv tbev would be doing some-
thing towards benefitting the mine
owner and prospector, and such a
policy WOOld be the rankest heresy.
No, strainer, we pay that monev
for the proud privilege of building
up the country, of prospecting its
mineral wealth, of making it of
revenue bearing value to the gov
ernnn nt. Do we kick? Well, a
few.    Bui I hey   have  got   the   in
side track of usJust  icw and  we
have to grin and bear it We
have gut tn dig up. out of the bill-
ance the revenue collector has left
us, the amount uecesaary to build
roads and trails to our mines and
prospect-, getting in return llo-
absnlutc privilege of making tbe
country as valuable as possible.
I tell Vou stranger we have got a
government whoa* SOW ll above
the vulgar commonplace* of lif����,
whose love for the pursuit of
chimera-* and thecretical benefits,
iloes not allow ihem to descend
from their chuiiMife to Solm with
ua the practical problem of mutual
prosperity and future greatness.

The Spokane Chronicle publishes
an article showing that 3('kJ mining
companies have been incorporated
thus far this year, with a total capital
of 1300,925,(XU The stock is put up
at one million shares more frequently
than anything else. As time passes
t. e new companies are placed at
more and more capital stock. Formerly they were frequently less than
halt a oillftoa shares ot |1 per share
In 1&I5 there were more at a halt a
million than all the other figures
combined. But a halt a million soon
became too small and the favorite
capitalization increased to $750,UU>,
and then to |1,U0J,U0U. Lately one
million shares is considered rather
small aud a million and a quarter
and a million and a half has become
quite frequent and a tew hate run as
high as three, five and six, aud one
is incorporated tor twenty millions.
Perhaps new companies to be formed
in the future will increase the number
of shares iu each still more until
twenty-five, fifty or one hundred
million shares will be put into the
companies. And it miy Ikj some
prospector who thinks his claim is a
wonder will incorporate fjr five
hundred or one thousand million
shares ot the par value of tl each.

George H. Newman. Indian asrent

jubt returned from a trip around tbe
Colville reservation looking after the
welfare of his charges. Agent Newman says that he found many white
 men on the reservation busily engaged iu developing their mining prop
erty, and that manv of the propertw s
bear strong evidence of becoming
great and valuable aiines, . The
northern part ot the reservation has
n ��r, however, been, nearly explored,
and until it has the extent of the
mineral resources cannot be determined.
There are between three and four
hundred Indians on tbe north lialf of
the reservation, and about thirty-one
hundred on tbe entire reservation
The survey of the reservation  has
not yet been accepted by the govern*
ment,  and uutil that is done the
allotment of Indian lands cannot be
made.     Shonld    the    government
apioint only one alloting agent he
would hardly be able to get through
with  the  work  in  the six months
allowed to the indiansto choose their
lands.   Three or four agents could,
however, finish up in six ujuuths and
probably in less.    Under tbe most
favorable  circumstances the   reservation can hardly be thrown open
before next fall.

ALL   M11IIT   IN    A    ItHKlNH   BATH
The following narrative by Dr.
Cooke, the physical instructor of the
Y. M. C. A., has been obtained at an
inter* tew while partaking of a Turk*
ish bath at tbe invitation of Professor
Hart, the well-known professor ol
dietetics and scientific food specialist
On my arrival at the hotel about
midnight, somewhat fatigued by late
hours, I was introduced by Dr. Cooke
of the V. at Q A., to Professor Hart.
who, I bad been previously informed,
was an Knglishman alxmt Ct> years
ot age, but who from my judgement
from his general activity ol body and
vigor of brain might lie taken lor 45,
'hough his clear blue eyes look quite
youthful, and his clear skin, which is
of a pink tint, would make him look
younger   were it   not   for  his gray
1 was invited to take a Turkish
bath in OOtnpftUy with these two devotee* The doctor is known for his
i.evotioii to the science of physical
culture and athletic exercises, and the
proles**.��r to the reform of the foods of
the civilised world SO as to enable
phytdcal culturists to bring about
greater perfection iu their pttpUl by
having them trained on foods more
capable of sustaining buly and brain
than I* |JO**.ble on the presenttashion-
abl�� hut very eroneous system t��t living.
The object of the visit to the Turk-
hh b* th was for the pun ruse of explaining to Dr. Cooke, by personal
demonstration, the actual method ot
taking Turkish baths in Oonstanti
nnpte. as practiced iu the St Sophia
l��ath nem\r tbe great St. *>��rrtiiH, wnere
the sultans ami tbe grand vitiers of
Turkey take their hath* At this
bath, Professor Hart took his first
Turkish hath, forty years ago.ami he
say* that through the lesson he learn
ed ami the la'iietlts he has derived
through the discoveries he baa made
in the study of dietetic* during tbe
last forty years, he is now feeliutt
very much stronger and many years
younger in every way than he dkl
forty years ago.
We enter the hath rcceioton room
and. after disrobing, we are conducted into a room the heat of which is
IN ). We remain here a short tune
as a kind of preliminary to season us
before entering the Itntroom . where
we commence to perspire freely. The
moisture iu our bodies prevent* us
feeling the beat, which is great
enough to hake bread To convince
one's self of the heat, it is ouly.'neces
aary to let your Hugers come fn con
tact with some unit porous substance
like iron, bras* or glass After perspiring lively for about ten minutes
or more we no into the shampooing
looitta, where the real work ot trans
format ton takes place. Here Professor
Han gives hi* instructions in tnanip
ulaiing the body so . s to give the
greatest amount of I*m e It and enjoyment to the bettor, and where he, by
reason of the great magnetic power
which he paeaeeMt conveys to his
patient, as lie illustrated to Dr. looke
or anv one of his male patient* that
require ibis extraordinary service.
Piofessor Harts system ot shampoo
ing <li(!ers from all shampooer* in
general from the fact that he is as
much a Michael Angelo in the Turk
ish bath as he is in the composition,
quality and uuantity ot food to b��
ante i, as he looks to the trifles in
everything, which trifle*, a* Michael
Angelo, the great sculptor.said "makes
perfection, which is no iriflo."
The professor contends thaT as alt
the pores of the skin run in a down
ward direction from head to foot, aa
seen and indicated bv the way the
hair grows, the skin should no more
be rubbed upwards, or anv rough
frictiou used in an upward direction,
than you would rub the kiilca of a
Hsh, unless you wish to injure or remove the scales. His attention was
led to the Investigation of this subject
on the establishment of the first Turkish bath in London, shortly after the
Crimean war, bv the shampooer*
rubbing his body by an upward ami
backward movement, that caused the
skin to smart, aud, as be aftewards
ex|<erieiiced, great sorenes* tlrough
the rough unwanl friction of the
shampooer, who was ignoiant of this
simple fact, that the skin has its fine
scales though imperceptible to the
human eve, but may he plainly seen
under a [wwertul microscope. From
this experience Profsssor Hart ever
afterwards gave instructions to every
shampo<M��r how to shannon him. and
offered bakshish iu the form of a gold
dollar to the man who tor a time
shampooed him, so a* not to cause his
skin, which is of very fine texture, to
be impaired by the operation.
Professor Hart has written upon
this subject, "How lo take a Turkish
bath" so as to enjoy it and not take
cold afterwards, which may be done
tor wa t of exercis ng pr.per
discr tk) i ��� The origin of Professor
Harts efforts iu this direction arose
from the fact that oue ot his dearest
friends in the prime of lite took a
Turkish hath rate evening and after
wards look a chill through indiscreet
exposure, went to bed and died before
After the shamftming operation on
the system advocated by Professor
Hart,*we all three ftassed through the
dough and needle operation of being
cooled down, when we hastened into
the cooling room, and lav on luxurious ottomans between snowflake
white sheet* and chatted for a time,
and then gradually dozed off to sleep,
and after a sound sleep for several
hours we wake up about 7 o'clock
very much refreshed with a new-
kind of expression as if are had passed
through a kind ot heaven on earth.
There can Ik? no possible doubt that
Professor Halt's system which is
I w set I on a physiological fact that the
skin of all created things runs downwards, a* indicated by the hairs of
animals or the feathers if birds and
scales of fish, that it is much more
enjoyable to come out of a Tnrkish
bath* with a whole skin than with a
damaged akin, as the professor tre
quently did before having the system
of sham) oo ng corrected.
"We've got to admit that the bicycle has come t> stay ; that's certain."

Hark to the voice ot oue who wails in
grief and consternation,
Singing the dirge, alack tlio day ! ot
rational conversation ;
Dead, gone, and quite forgotten, till
one wonders in amaze
What people found to talk about in
pie-cyclotic days.
With talk ot wheels and nothing else
from soup to macaroni,
A modern dinner means a cyclo-
With qui|s ami cranks in good old
time our talk was wont to glitter
The quips are gone, the cranks survive to prove themselves the titter.
The cyclo-chattcr penetrates all sorts
and kinds of places ;
Queen's Counsel talk ot "handle-bars"
and doctors of "gear cases."
The  scientific  man  enquires, "are
Swifts or Bantams fleeter?"
And "c> clo" is the prefix to the poets
dainty metre,
,, ..
I m sighing for the good old times, tis
sad to think upon them!
When maids sat at the spinning-
wheels instead of sitting on them;
For though unfrequent were their
words and very mild their jokes;
They tireji you not with talk ot tires,
nor did'theV speak of sookes.
But nowadays in (drawing rooms and
shops and ladies' clubs
Young wives complacently   discuss
the "new self-oiling hubs "
In strange mysterious phrase I hear
them tell as iu a dream
How this one rides a  "Buffalo" and
that one a "sunbeam."
And oh! how hard his lot who, in the
cvclo-craze not sharing.
Will find the talk of "ball hearings"
is almost past his bearing!
They'll say "a tcrew loose in his nut"
to scorn the modern iaddle,
And sad'll be his fate who takes no
interest in a ' 'saddle,"
The ball  of conversation  to keep
rolling nowadays
You needs must talk the cyeloshop,
and feign to sfiare the craze.
The one consideratien that consols me
at this juncture
Is that tbe the ball s |��nuinatic ; so I
hope it soon will puncturer
The border statesman with his bill
to discriminate against Canadian la
hour has been heard from in Congress
again. This time it is Representative
Mahany who would be the deliverer
of his toiling countrymen from the
casual competition of ttfeir neighbor*
on the north. Mr. Mahany comes
from Buffalo. He is one ot the two
Representatives that city has in the
House. It is a safe guess to say that
his district or constituency take.-, in
tnatf part of Buffalo in which the
working classes are mostly hived.
His bill may be dictated by pure
philanthrophy or narrow patriotism,
but it looks very much as if it wen*
intended as a-vote-trap tor the particular use of Mr Mahany. Whether
it pasaes of" not it ought to be the
making of that politician in. his own
end of the town. He sprang the
measure on Congress  on the  very
first cay of the session.   Therein-he
showed his political sagacity.   It was
not uuknowiMoliini that his brilliant
itteu had done service before In the
plans ot some of the lake |��>liticaus.
It was, iu fact, rather a favorite
engine tor working the voting masses
of the northern cities. Irinight there-
tore be in considerable request during
this session, and several Congressmen
who "���"desired to make themselves
^oliii with large blocks of wage-
earners in the border towns might
want to Use the itlea all at the same
time. Hence Mr. Mahany was wise
in pushing his bill upon the attention
of the Boose the very first day. By
his activity he probably forestalled
Representative Corliss, who last bail
the use ot this idea ot barring out
Canadian labor, Mr. Corliss is a
Detroit man, His anti-Canadian labor
bill, which was much talked of last
year, was quite as thoroughgoing a*
Representative Mahany's. Mr. Corliss would put an end to all einplox
ment of Canadian labor by I nited
States contractors, manufacturers, or
buisness men ot any kind whatsoever-
Workingmen iu Windsor won Id no
longer be permitted to eotua aerota u��
Detroit in the morning, earn then-
day's wages, anil return at night.
This session he.has not yet returned
to the attack, pofeftHy beoanse he
was anticipated by Mr. Muhany ot
Buffalo; possibly because he was
fair enough to see that it was some
body else's turn to wtuk the ami-
Canadian labor bill. At all evenus
Mr. Mahany is to have the floor. His
bill makes it:
"Unlawful for aliens, unles* tbe\
have declared their Intention to be
come citizens ot the 1'nited States and
can show an uninterrupted residence
in this country of one year train the
date of such" declaration, to be employed in any capacity on work to ! e
constructed or completed by the (iov
eminent or by contractors under
contract* entered into subsequent to
tht: passage of this act"
For violalUajaof the law it provides
a tine of hod tees tliaMfalUU or iinpris
onment for1 nt* less tfian one month
The purpose of the bill is to complete
the stiff disci imination already exer
ciaed again-* Canadian labor and
make it r!af ute exclusion. Under
the watchf. \ eye of Inspector De
Barry, whose service covers the part
of the frontier in which Buffalo h
included, it is difficult for a Canadian
workingman to get into the couptrx
from Central Ontario. Many who do
make their way in are deported mi
ope ground or another. None can be
employed on any Government con
tract. There is very little privilege
left, therefore, tor Mr. Mahany to take
away. It is time that this poiwyd
treating Canadian workingmen a* if
they were Chinese coolie* were met
by some legislation of the same kind
on (air part, It Canadian wag�� -
earners are to l>e repulsed from the
United Suites, United States laborers
should not he iiermitted to come in
here aud underbid our own |*ropli:.
Something should be done on the
lines advocated by Mr. Taylor, the
able member for South 'Leeds, who
has given great attention to thi��
question, has, in fact, made ll special.
ly his own. A law such as he pro
poses is what is wanted, and what
the sense of the workingmen of the
country has begun todviliand.

Tha Tank waa a Dandy.
The man who built the tank of
the Sandon Water Work* Co. has
reason to be proud of tbe stability
and solidity of bis work. On
Monday last it stood a test, that
bad it been a poor piece of workmanship, must have resulted disastrously to tbe water supply of
the town for tbe time being. Not
only that but tbe escapement offeo
much water would have caused a
landslide that would have hurled
thousands of tons of earth, rock
ami trees on tbe railroad   beneath
While felling irees for the saw-
mill one of the men failed to place
his tree where it would be supported by others ami prevented from
plunging down the mountain side,
tbe consequence was that it struck
tbe tank end on with the force of
a cannon-shot piercing through
four planks each three inches in
thickness and smashing; a two
inch iron bar.
The neatness of the bole made
by the log testifies to tbe velocity
at which it waa coming. Had tbe

compartments, tbe contents of the

Dated this   eighteenth day of November,

Two drastic bills have been introduced in tbe United States Con-
gress,  which,  while they do not
make   any    distinction     between
nationalities, have been   evidently
framed with  tbe express purpose
of operation   against   Canadians.
One of  tbe bills,  introduced  by
Congressman Mahony, of Buffalo,
N. Y., aims at the more  complete
shutting out of Canadian  labor in
the cities along   the   border.   It
reads as follows:    "Be  it enacted
by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United  States
of America, in   Congress   assem-
bled, that on and after tbe pas-
sage of this act it shall be  unlawful for   aliens, unless   they  have
declared their intentions to become
citizens of the United States, and
can show an  uninterrupted  residence in this country of one year
from  the   date   id    such    decla
ration,  to   be   employed   in any
capacity on work to be constructed or completed   by tbe Govern,
meut, or by contractors under contracts entered into subsequent to
the passage of this act.    That for
each and  every   violation   thereof
there shall be  imposed  a  fine of
not   less    than   $100    or    more
than $500,   or   imprisonment for
not less than one month nor more
than three, or both  penalties,  in
the discretion of the court."   The
tithe? bill is by Congressman Wilbur, of  New York.     It   provides
that every male immigrant  of |K
years antl over shall pay a duty of
$100; each immigrant shall   brine;
from the American consul  of bis
sailing port a certificate that  the
amount of duty has not  been advanced by any syndicate, corporation   or  employer, and   that the
bearer is a man  of good  repute;
each   immigrant   shall  read   and
write; immediately   upon  landing
he shall renounce his allegiance to
his mother couutry ami declare his
intention of becoming an  American citizen, to which he shall tike
a prescribed oath.
Tha Diamond Drill
Perhaps nothing has contributed
more than the diamond .drill to
take mining out of tne lists of
speculation and place it among
legitimate investments. Usually
a bond or option may be obtained
upon a very promising prospect by
paying down a small sum of
money, the deferred payments be
ing for larger amounts. Having
by this arrangement secured a few
months control of the property,
the prospective purchaser can at a
small outlay with a diamond drill
ascertain the width, dip and information regarding the depth of
the vein. He then goes to an
assayer and has from ten to a
hundred assays made of parts of
the core taken from different sec
tions of the boring.
He will then know the  value of
the property as accurately   as  he
knows the  value   of   a   stock   of
goods that  he   has just Invoiced,
If the showing from   the borings
are   not   satisfactory,   be    load*
up    the     diamond      drill      antl
moves on to investigate some oihei
property but if a   strong   vein   ol
shipping ore has been disclosed lo
puts men to mining,  easily   meets
deferred payments out of lie pn��
ceeds ot  the ore  antl   is   soon   fai
