Messrs. McGillvray and Coleman, of Vancouver, are looking at
[heir interests on Springer creek-
Several new mining deals are on
in* lapis this week, mention of
which will Iki made as soon as
���hey are closed.
The owners of the Wonderful
mine will increase their force of
men as KMMI a* they can get water
for ground slui'Mng.
Assays from the Monitor, a
\nuiig but splendid projierty,gives
from LOO to 800 onaoea off silver
mil as much as $10 iu gold.
No leas   than   four   good   lead**
have been discovered on the Queen
Be** mine   and   it   \o quickly   be
.'.iiiing a prominent shipper.
Ihe Cinderella and I'aluietta
mines, adjoining the Healher Hell,
ire reported to have liven sold to
in Amerirau   I judicata   recently.
The Ivaahoe mine ha* closed
iloWO leni|>orarily owing   to   their
liability to get supplies to the
mine Work will pr-ihahly Ik* re-

The Healher Hell Mining and
MillingCom pan \. limited liability, will commence operations on
'he Heather Bell group early iu
May. It is expected that the
oonipaaj will open tha high trad*
lead that runs through ihe   Heath*
er    Belli    Atlanta   and   AtOuaeoti
Kractinu elaim-. aud drift   Upon   it
Until they out the other large lea.l
that  cuts  across  the   formation
uaasing through the Atlanta aad
North Star claims. The Heather
Hell property seems .lest i ned to become one of the prominent pro
perlier* iu tho district, Its ore is
nigh grade and its surface shows
Jt splendid variety of leads. The
company has made little effort to
boom itsstoek yet there has been
>i steady increase in the demand
for the same. It is the expectation  of the   managing   director
Andrew G. Larseu that a shiptueut
will be made from this property
about the lirst of July.
Nsw Poilcs Ststlon.
The Samion   police,  are  assuming   decidedly   metropolitan    airs
|net now, and utile*.* all signs   fail
to materali/.e the time   is   not   for
distant when a seat of justice sec-
oud to none iu the Province will
be attOOg our possessions. New
and greatly improved headquarters hare recently bean established
near the Hotel Kootenay, aud the
guardians! of the |>eace and dignity can now lie found there, ready
to mete ant justice to ali evil doers
iu the latest and most approved
fashion. It mav not be amiss to
state that bustaees at the new
stand is improving aud more than
one unfortunate has been convin
eed that the tough de tough act is
not what its cracked up to be. The
force is exercising a close vigilance
uu those of our population who
are inclined to step the bounds of
the "straight ami narrow path"
mapp d out for our guidauce and
little lawlessness escape their
vision. Thk Paystreak will
hereafter report all public court
news in full, aad those who have
an aversion to ****** iug their names
���tpjs*ai ttudet- that uneviable caption will do well to avoid that in*
stitutton. We resemble the Lord
in at least one respect ���that of being no reapeotor of persons, and
none need imagine ttial position
or influence will save them from
the penal patpooe'a deadly   work.
Ninas Nssr Cslgsry.
Mining operations in the   moun-
tains on and near the main line of
the Canadian Pacific   railroad   are
at present taking on a revival that
promise*- to assume  solid   proportions.    A great  number  of  valuable deposits have been long known
to exist   within   t\i)  to   9G0  miles
west of Calgarv.    Work   on   some
of thetS was started as  far back as
1888, but   had   to   hd stopped   for
lack of capital.     Now that invest
ors have   been   at   last   convinced
that the mineral is there they   are
tumbling over each other to get in
on the ground tloor.
Falss AdvartlBlnQ.
.lames l.aut is selling stock iu
Montreal for tho great Ibex of
Dlncao as it is called. He advertise*, that the mines are in the
Slocan Mining division of West
Kootenay. As this is not so, the
energetic .lames must be foolishly
ignorant of hi** business. If he was
crooked he would not lc.ve him-
self liable, in case some of his
customers should kick iu the
future.
LOCAL CHUTE.

an hotel at Silverton.

osw stock of spring millinery.

boat on Slocan lake after the
famous camp that caused this fine
steamer to be created.
All the hobos and toughs are to
be run out of Sandon. so the lesser

bulldogs filled up with tbe same
kind of grub Fit_imu��ou-�� waa fed
on at Carson.
Tbe owners of the Queen Bess
���re happy. On Wednesday they
strnck two feet, in No. 8 tunnel,of
nearly solid are while in No. 4
level, 21 inches of the same kind
of ore ia in sight.
A horse with a cart attached
and some rawhide animals got
tangled up in front of the Hotel
Hal moral yesterday. As a result
of the engagement Reco Avenue
was littered with lumber and the
windows in McQueen & Gore's
store resembled Corbett after the
late unpleasantness in Nevada.
W. C. White, late of Tacoma,
Wash., has leased the Clifton
house restaurant and lodging

The bar will remain under the
old management.
The period of inowalidea is upon
us���overrunning the country like
the "grip" haeeilus or the seven
year locust The K. & S. is one
ofthe victims, and with such destructive force did it strike them,
that they have not, as yet been
able to rally from its effect. Saturday morning, a large full grown
slide, demolished the bridge between Bailey and McGuigan, and
although a large force of men have
been at work repairing the damage, the road is still blockaded,
travel   has   not   been   materially
affected, however, as regular trips
have been made since Wednesday
���accomplished by transferring at
the bridge. Work is progressing
steadily on the bridge and it is expected that the road will be clear,
ed and regular trips resumed within a short time. A number of
slides have also occurred at different points on the road, but they
have been cleared without moch
difficulty and after the present
blockade bas been removed no
other serious trouble is anticipated.
The tunnel on the Gracie is in
110, with 150 feet more to drill
before the lead is tapped.

A Few Hard Shell Facts, snd Figures
Won't Lie.
Much bas been written anent
tbe <*reat we?!th of the Kootenai
district mines and their excellence
paraded by the column in every
paper of the Province, but as yet
few of the statements adduced
have been backed up by the actual
figures. The Paystreak. reaJis
ing ihe benefits which will accrue
t<> the disfict by publishing a few
iron clad facts, aappotted by reliable figures, has, with no small
amount of labor, succeeded in ob-
taiuing the full and accurate smelter returns of the Been mine from
January 1st. 1894, to Mareh L'Tiii.
of tlte present year, showing the
net pounds of ore Skipped iVom
the niiue each year. thj total
yield -��f silver an 1 lead from each
vears shipments, the a vera/**
ounces of silver per ton and the
per cent, of lead per ton for each
vear. the duty paid to the I'nited
St ites and tiie net yearly amount
received fir the product of the
mine. There are few if any p anpte
in this Province who are not
familiar with the Citen instances
surrounding the discovery an I
subsequent development of this
wonderful property, hen-* a de
tailed account of this feature would
be superfluous tt this time. During the coming summer a number
of improvements at aud in con-
juetion with theminewili be made,
one of which will be the erection
of a large concentrator and also a
tramway. The exact location has
not. as yet. been definitely decide,!
upon bat will b-* built near San
don. Following i-? the result of
ur investigation:
From   Januarv   1st.    189*1,    to
Apr.l 7:h. 189*1, taer*- was shipped
l+rt.4:)*; pounds of ore. which   pr��
daeed   12."4S.<>2  ounces  of  -ilver
and 104,327 pounds of l-*ad.    Th*-
ore averaged 17"��*'> ounces of ��il
ver per  ton  and   7"�� 7."   per  c**nt
lead.     On   tlsia amount   of   or*
-. 1 .*;��;��._1' duty was paid.    Dadnct*
ing this duty and the  freight   and
smelting   charges,    there remain!
a net amo..nt of 17,130.91   for   the
taree mouths iu which the mine
was worked.
From January ItHb, 1896, to
December (list, 1885, there was
shipped 038tO25 pounds of ore.
which produced 7 ���">.���"> 12.44 ounces
of silver and 816,507 pounds of
lead. The average yield of silver
per ton for the year was 225.87
ounces and the average per cent,
of lead was 3K.40. After paying
02,070.59 duty and the freight and
smell ng charges, the net amount
realised for th*4 year was $45,-
31'��.77.
F.om Jaaua/f -ird. 1896, to
December loth, lV.Hi, there was
shipped 842,718 pounds of ore.
which produced 124.N04.24 ounces
of silver and :^h'..44.*. puunda of
lead. Tne ore yielded an aver.IgC
of 307.72ounces of silver per run
and 87-72 per cent. lead. Ths
duty paid was >_' 332.84 and after
deducting this amount and the
freight and treatment charge*]
there still remained a net income
,.f 170.638.06.
From  January    184b,    1897,   to
March rj7th. 1**:��7. there wa?   ship
ped 7>-V'Vi pounds of or*-,   which
produced 115,952.19 ounce- ot *H-
ver and ."��'i"��.21"  pounds  of  lead
This   ore   yielded   an average  ul
302 90 ounces ofsH*er |***r ton and
42.94 per cent lead      A Iter   pe)
ing 12,091 -'il duty and the freight
and   treatment   charges there   r.*
maiued a net balance of $72 261.57.

Taking tiiese figure* a*, a basis

GENERAL   7HININC.   NOTJuS,
In Spokane the following mining
shares were quoted at prices named :
Commander, 15ic; Deer Park. 20c.
Josie, 47c.; Le Koi, $7.25c.; .Monte
Cristo, 12c; Noble Five, 58c.: 0. K..
24.\c.; Slocan Star, $2.t50; Wonder-
fal, 9Jc; Cariboo, 47-Jc: Rambler,
52\c; Jeff Davis, 21. Generally
speaking all these stocks were Arm
at the prices named.
A Kossland syndicate, the Silver
<t>ueen Minirg company, has recently
secured the Maxwell group uf seven
full claims in Cariboo creek camp
for $10,000 cash and a block of stock
in the company. Considerable work
has been done on the Black Fox. one
of the group, and it is thought that
the new company will continue to
work on this claim until the property
is fully developed.
The Le Koi seven drill compressor
was moved over to the Lily May last
week, although the depth of snow
made the undertaking very difficult.
The plant is first ciass in every particular, having been purchased 'ess
than two years ago by the Le Koi
Company. It will certainly be a
great help in developing the promising Lily May.
A big strike is said to have been
made on the Joker claim, oi. Lookout
mountain. The shaft was put down
50 feet, from which a crosscut was
run to tap the ledge. It was on this
crosscut that a strike was made which
now shows seven feet ot ore. The ore
shows considerable copper, with a
quartz and diorite gangue. On the
Soverign, which adjoins the Joker,
on the east, they now have a solid
body of four teet of exactly the same
ore.
Kobert T. Green, mayor of Kaslo.
has recently secured an option of four
properties in the Ainsworth districts
for ?17,000. The amount of the option on each claim is as follows: The
Standard, situated about three miles
from Ainsworth. $503: the Laura N..
adjoining the Standard, $3,500; the
Surprise Fraction, situated about one
mile west of Woodbury creek, $5,000:
and the Union, a Crown-granted
claim near Ainsworth, tor $8,000.
An assay of black sand taken from
the lower bank ofthe Saskatchewan,
at Kdmonton, went $258.50 to the ton
in gold pnd platinum, ill ozs. 2 dwt.
gold at $20, and 3 ozs, 2 dwt. platinum at $15j. The assay was made by
W. Pellew Server, F.C. S.
The Carbonate mineral claim has
now passed wholly into the hands of
Charles F. Caldwell, ol Kaslo, who
recently purchased the remaining
interests of Gav Boeder and D. K.
Croft for $5000.'
The Payne group is producing more
ore than at any time this season.
Sixty tons a day are now going to
market from the property. Seventy
men sre employed in and about the
mine.
Assays made in Vancouver ot ore
from the Oro Fino group ol claims at
Fairview, ran respectively $215.ill,
$'110.80, $856 and $804.90.
Remarkably tine copper ore, so
rich that it is almost mailable, was
discovered a short time ago in the
Josie, in Summit camp, by the upturning of a tree. The Josie was
twice staked as a wild eat, that is to
say without mineral being found in
!>lace.
The first allotment of .'{5,000 Brandon it Golden Crown  treasury stock
shares at 10c. has been sold, and a ,
second block will shortly be put on ���
the market at an increased price.  A. )
Kelly, one of the director of the com-
pany, sold 25,000 shares in Brandon,
Manitoba, in a few days.
S. S. Fowler, consulting engineer
for the British Canadian Gold Fields
syndicate, is negotiating tor s mini
ber of Boundary creek propeties,
through. W. T.Tlionijison. Mr.howle'-
is exacted to arrive in the camp in
the course ofa few days. The British
Canadian Gold Felds Co. have already large Interests in the district.
W. T. Thompson bonded this week
a group of claims in Skylark camp,
including the Lead King. Salaman
dor and Cbmstock, faun Messrs. Haas.

Note that the Crows1 Nest railway
is within  hailing distance,  a  little
knowledge ofthe first section of Brit
ish Columbia through which  it  will
traverse, after leaving the prairie,
may not appear out of place, as it is
destined to become one ot the fir-st, if
not the first districts in the  whole of
ot British Columbia : this we say advisedly, as no other section can show
B like variety of economic minerals
moreover, it is something of a ranch
ing and   farming  country   of great
natural  beauty,   possessing  the ad
vantages ot  good   water,  plenty of
timber, fairly large hav  meadows,
etc., small prairies tree from timber,
which diversify its features and adds
to its attractiveness.    \Yith all, it pew
Sessesa verv healthy climate, and is
situated between 2000 and  .Umi feet
above sea level.
Kight in the Crows Ne��t Pass are
large seams of coals, Anthracite,
Bituminous and Cannel. Some of
these deposits being over 3) feet in
thickness and can l>e seen in place
for over 10 miles. A little to the
south |e'.roleuinla*been f< uud which
is of the very best quality.
These: measures are probably the
most extensive, and, in consequence
of the variety ot coal, the richest
fields discovered on the continent
This item alone is sufficient to bring
Fast Kootenay :n'o prominence,and it
only requires the advent of the rail-
wav, with the construction ol coking
ovens to make southern Ka��.t Kooten
ay an ideal smelter site The grade
from the coal fields is in its favor,nnd
the distance short, while it has tribu
tary to it, "down stream over 1<��>
miles of water transjiortation ; in fact
nature has omitted nothing in order
to make the situation perfect.
Adjacent to the Crow's Nest Pass
are numerous veins of OOpper, lx>th
high and low grade, with a few
ledges (f gold quart*, the cupper
being in the form of Malachite, dial
coclte, Tetra lied rite, Phrollolite and

lie called, runs from the International boundary as far north as Fort

diorite, tulcose Hlates and schists,

with tlieir large OOt-CTOpB of galena

upon them. Alter leaving Tracy ���
creek, the mineral /.one continue**
through Sheep creek, claims dotting
the country as tar as Diorite creek.
All the foregoing refers to the Bockv
mountains proper, on the eaat ewe oi
the Kootenay ealiey.
On the wc.-t ride <*t Ute valley we
have some ol the finest mineral belts
in British Columbia containing chiefly
lead, silver, gold and OOpper The
famous North Star is situated on a

to lie rich in minerals will be easy of
access, both for men and supplies.
This district is already favorably
known, both for its silver ledges and
its placer benches. The present
suiting joint for prospectors is Fort
Steele, but if the C. P. R bridges the
the Kootenay river as is reported at
Wsrdner, some 20 miles to the south,
a lively mining supply town is pretty
sure to spring up there. No part of
this country has been well prospected
up to date, although there are several groups of galena mines that have
Is'cn shippers lor some time past, notably, the North Star, Sullivan and St.
Eugene. The ore bodies are of very
large size, but comparatively low
grade, running from 25 to 60 buuees
in silver and 40 to ��i0 per cent, lead
per ton. The improved transport
that will be afforded by the new line
will, however, rendei the working of
mines in this vicinity remunerative
enough even at those figures. Very
large quartz ledges carrying gold
have been tound on Saw Mill and Kll-
wood creeks, which flow into Perry
-���reek, a tributary of the St. Mary's
river, which has been located. The
tributaries of Wild Horse creek, have
placer claims famous for production
in the past.

Mr. Charlton presented two old
stand-bys in the Sabbath Observance
Act, which lie wants to make more
effective, and the bill to amend the
criminal code by increasing the age
of onsent to 18 years.
There is talk of an a.lj.'Urninent ot
Parliament for some weeks at the end
ot May in order to permit Mr. I_aurier
to go to England. It is said Sir
Charles Tupper is also anxious to
cross the Atlantic at that time.
Messrs. Casey and Maclean are to
the fore again with their Bills for the
protection of railway employees, both
of which run much on the same lines.
Mr. Maclean has, however, auother
important bill to amend the Railway
Act, the object of which is to impose
a maximum 2-cent per mile rate for
the carriage of passengers and compel the ra'lway companies or other
companies owning sleeping cars to
put upper berths up when not actual
ly engaged.
The written argument on behalf of
British and Canadian interests on
the Behring Sea Commission tor the
adjustment ot the sealers" claims to
indemnity has been completed. The
counsel who returned from Victoria,
where evidence was adduced, have
been hard at work ever since on tbe
preparation of the written argument,
which had to be ready before May 1;
It will be filed inside the prescribed
time and then tbe FniUd States authorities have the right to reply, also
in a written argument, alter wliich
oral presentation of the case liefore
two commissions will take place, con
eluding the proceedings till judg
ments are handed down.
Mr. Mclnnes, M. P. tor Vancouver,
has also notice ofa motion on the order paper in which he calls for the
disallowance of the Act ot the B. C.
legislature ot* last voar, extending
the land grants to the B. C. Southern
railway through the Crow's Nest.
His motion declares: | a) The grants
and privileges so extended are unwarranted and grossly extravagant |
they are made without the interests
of the'public being properly safeguarded, and include rights that will
retard the development of the country and prevent the general enjoyment of its advantages; (b | the said
acts it continued in force would create
such a monopoly in land, coal and
tranj'i'ortation as would prove dangerous to the development and prosperity of the said province and to the
interests ot Canada generally.
The present state of feeling in Canada in regard to existing relations
wit a the United States is exemplified
by t' prompt action of two members
n�� introduce restrictive legislation
against the United States. Mr.
Cbwao, meml>er for Essex, has three
bills on the notice paper. Tine is a
lac simile of the I. S, Alien Labor
Law. another seeks to abolish the rc-
ciprocal wrecking* arrangement
whereby a Canadian wrecking plant
may operate in I'nited States waters
vice versa, and a third bill socks to
amend the immigration laws of Canada by imjiosing a number ot rcstric
lions 'similar to those which the
I'nited States now places on immigrants.
Mr.Taylor, member for south Leeds
is also to the fore with a bill to prohibit foreign labor entering Canada
under Contract, but Mr. Cowan's bill
will take precedence, the notice is*
ing handed in earlier.
Mr. Tarte trot a bad one in the eye
the other morning. The l*ublic
Works department is temporarily
housed in the Slater building on
Sparks street. (>n arriving at "his of
ticed early the minister noticed a man
sitting in the corridor reading the
morning paper. Mr. Tarte asked
him what he wasdoing. Im reading
the paper, was the reply. Can t you
find anything else to do* around
building so early in the morning
marked the minister.
No, sir, I can't.
Is that what we are paying
for? demanded Mr. Tarte,   a
I). S. WAlXBlUlu,!

Works. (.0 to the office and get vour

I'll do'nothing ot the kind, replied
thc gentleman with the new-paper,
calmly adding : Do you know wh< I

No, said Mr. Tarte and I don't care
to know either.
Well. I'll tell you. all the same,

Judging from all indications there
is to be a revival of silver mining in
the district west of Port Arthur
S*me time ago tlie Rabbit Mountain
mine was cleared ot water and in
spected by Messrs. Aim and Hay, the
well-known mining men. for a French
company, which company is now
negotiating for th*' purchase ol the
property.
And now the Algoma Herald makes
the announcement that the east end
Silver Mountain mine is to be worked. The old Liverpool com pany
worked the property extensively tor
several years and met with a gnat
measure ol success, shipping large
quantities Of very rich silver ore.
Thev closed the mine down BOOM four
or five years ago in the face ofa good
showing of the white metal awl n< ver
since resumed work.
For some weeks back   Mr   A   1.
McKwen, the former manager of the
KnglLsh company, an I i*till later their
agent in this country,   has been  in
negotiation with a company of cap
italists of Cedar  Kaiiids.   Iowa,   who
desired to buy the Fast Fnd property.
The negotiations went smoothly along
and were brought so a satisfactory
conclusion to all interested     The first
payment was made on Friday morn
ing through the Ontario  liailk, and
the second is du<* on May .'��� next.
It is the intention of" tin* new com
pany,    the   Argentite   Mining  and
Redaction Co., toopen tbe mine again
and work it vigorously. They .dso
projioseereeting a redaction Works on
the location to treat tbe ore. thus
saving the heavy transportation
charges that, were paid in former
days. The Argentite Co is also en
deavoriug to arrange with the Wist
End Co. whereby the ore from the
latter Company's mine will lie treated
in the proposed redaction works.
Silver Mountain Fast End was in
the old *iays a constant shipper ol rich
ore. The famous shipper of rich ore
chute of th*; West Fnd mine passes
through the Fast Fnd, aud during the
management of Mr. McEwen many
tons of tin* BonanSS or** were taken
out.

KILLED IN A SNOW SLIDE
Three  Men   Buried   Beneath   an
Avalanche from the Mountain
ATTHESLOCAN MILLING CO. TRAM
Sunday afternoon tha men working:
on the Slocan Milling- Cos. tramway
near Three Forks, beard the roar of
a slide coming' Irom above.   Supt.
llickey,    Clark   Bibbee  and   Alex.
Stanstield were standing together,
and Chas. II. Phillipe had just come
up, on his wev to the mine after
spending the Sabbath with his young
wife in Sandon. They all started to
run down the tramway. Stanstield,
Bibbee and Phillips sought shelter in
a snow shed close by, but Supt.
Hickey kept on the race for lite and
fortunately escaped uninjured. The
slide struck'the shed with tremendous force and demolished it in a moment, burying: all beneath 30 teet ot
snow, timbers and rock. Supt.
Hickey summoned help and 25 men
were soon at work digging to rescue
the bodies of the unfortunate boys,
but it was not until after nine o'clock
at night that they were found.
Although the snow shed was
strongly built its timbers were snapped like pickets. The body of Stanstield was found with a 10x12 timber
across the head. With his arm a tout
its neck and his head resting portly
upor it was found the carcass of his
faithful dog, which he had apparently attempted to hold in the si.* d to
prevent its being caught in the slide.
His body was not greatly bruised
outwardly, but those of Phillips and
Bibbee were frightfully crushed and
lacerated.
The sadness surrounding tbe death
of Phillips is largely augmented by
the fact that he had been married Dot
three weeks. He had been in Sandon
to visit his wife at the Balmoral hotel
and reached the sj-ot just in time to
be caught in the slide. He was 21
yean of age.
Stanstield came to this section from
Prince Albert in company with EL Gk
Lincoln, leaving there in October
last. They were jo'ned at Fort Steele
by Bibbee. Bibbee was 21 and
Stanstield 22 years of age. Their
parents and relative.-, reside at Fort
Steele and Prince Albert.
Dr. Braise was summoned and proceeded to the tramway Monday morning to hold an inqoest, Tbe verdict
ofthe jury was that death was in
each ease accidental, and that no
blame was attachable to anyone The
bodies were brought to New Denver
h��r burial on Tuesday afternoon.

Wixn'kpii, (Special)���Reports <��f
superannuation! at Ottawa of men
capable of earning their living arc
not received here with much favor.
Men who joined the I,il>eral legions
in denouncing the sujrerannuation
abuses under the Conservative Government are at a loss to know where
they are at, as their political friends
at (Ktawa are scarcely acting as they
promised they would.
How virtuous Manitoba can Is- -by
telegraph ! These Winnipeg patriots
are wise in their views and sound in
their objections to the idea that the
Grits should practice the sins which
they condemned when the Tories
were in power,
For the country a sake it is unfortunate that no party in power is likely
to attach much importance to tbe
principles*.!' Manitoba patriots. Manitoba may denounce abases end
Manitoba may clamour for a tariff
after it* own heart. Manitoka has
always an abundance of brave srurds,
but Manitoba's brave words have not
the influence that would attach to
courageous ami patriotic utterances
If the province which is so fluent in
words had not been so read? to take
the shilling last June.
Why should a party in power try
to please Manitoba by its acts so long
as it can command dollars to buy up
Manitoba constituencies on election
days. There i* absolutely no jttSti-
fication tor Manitoba's pitiable j-er
formance last June. It is true tbat
the vote was divided and that the
officials cheated, but it Manitoba had
been sound at heart there would have
been no divisions among the friends
of liberty, and tbe woroi polling
officials on earth could not nave
manufactured a majority f-��r the candidates of coercion.
Sackcloth and ashes is the proper
attire for Manitoba until Canada
generally gets time to rid the national
mind of an awkward belief that .* few
pails full of $f> bills on election day
would inflaenoe Manitoba to approve
ofthe policy which its people had
most bitterly condemn***! between
elections.    Toronto Teh-gram.

Patronize Horns Industry.
The close observance of the
above caption is indespensable to
the successful building up of a
town, and it is a fact per se that
the pursuance of any course other
than the above, will iuevitably re
suit in tne utter disruption of any
town or city in any country, ui>
matter what the excellence of its
foundation may be. It is not
known whether or not there are
any non-observers of this India
pensible requisite to a towns progress, in Sandon, but if there be
any antl he has the welfare of the
town at heart, as every resilient
should have, we beg to call their
attention to the fact that they are
pursuing a course derogatory to
the best interests of Sandon and
suggest that they at once re
solve to retrieve, as far as possible,
their past mistake and tender their
efforts toward the successful eliuii
nation of this evil. Sandon is
well represented in all the classes
of trade requisite for carrying on
the business of our immediate sur-
rounding country, the stores are
all well stocked with an adequate
assortment of wares in their respective lines, * he price are compatible with the conditions with
which we are surrounded and
there is positively no reason why
our business houses should not
be patronized in preference to
cities across the border, or other
towns within the Province, whose
wares are no better or whose
prices are no lower than those of
our own merchants. In fact, the
greater portion of those people
who send their money away from
home for goods which could be
purchased at home usually realize
before they have finished that they
are out about ten per cent, more
for their merchandise than it would
have cost them at home, and iu
many instances have been com
pelled to accept a vastly Inferior
article to that for which they paid
their money���in other words,
more plain, and perhaps bordering
On the vulgar, their pedal extremity has been elongated to a disagreeable extent. These assertions
are not abortions of a disarranged
mind but are fac'.s based upon
past observations, and cannot be
too closely observed for the welfare of our thriving little town.
Let u.s all pull together fr the
common good of the town and
fortune and prosperity must perforce suiile upon us.

During the next month or two
there will be a big rush to the
Clondyke river region in Alaska.
Scores of men are arriving in Seattle every week, preparatory to
taking the steamer north. All information from that country if
eagerly absorbed. One of the
most encouraging reports as to its
richness conies from   W.  F.  Con-
