The ladies of the Catholic church
are making arrangements to give a
high class concert on the evening of
Dominion Day. The very best talent
obtainable will be engaged for the
occasion and n ahing left undone to
make this one of the most pleasing
features of the Dominian Day celebration.
By the time table announced for
the Kaslo cejebratioii, the K. A S.
holds over the regular train on Monde v evening, 23rd, until the arrival
of the C. P. R. from Nakusp. A

Will Celebrate Dominion Dan
At a well'attended meeting held
in the council chamber on Tuesday
evening in was decided to celebrate
Dominion Day in Sandon. Messers.
Hunter, McClusky, Young and He-
Donald were appointed a committee
to canvass the town and see whst
funds would be obtainable. There is
no doubt they will meet with a liberal response from the citizens.
The Buck Will Run.
In the first announcement of the
Kaslo celebration It was stated that
the horse races would be open only
to Kaslo stock. The announcement
caused considerable resentment
among local sports as Sandon has a
horse about as fast as anything that
wears hair. After considerable correspondence it was decided to make
the races free for all and the Greasy
Buck will run. Buck Is the fastest
horse this far north.
Harry McDonald, of the White
House took water out of a neighbor's
tap for which the Beak on Tuesday
fined him f 10 snd costs. The Court
also mentioned the fact that it was
just as criminal to give water works
water away if it was to take it
away.
! THE PAYSTREAK, SANDON, B.C., MAY 14, 1898.
Our Munifident Gooernment
British Columbia's resources are In
the control of gentlemen who know
how to distribute with the glad hand.
Sandon s'City Council asked the
local legislature for 1600 to clear the
creek outside the city limits. An
answer was received recently through
OJot, Dennis, Assistant Commission-
er(of Lands and Works, stating that
the government had no money on
hand and would not have any until
Jujy. In other words, they would
not do anything for Sandon before
the elections. The appropriation
w(uch was made early in the session
has all been spent. We understand
that Three Forks got some 150 of it.
Sandon people were promised about
all they cared to ask, but up to date
these promises have failed to materialise. New Westminster, Nanaimo,
and other uncertain constituencies
are getting all kinds, of government
money. Some of the one-street towns
in solid divisions do not have to ask
f>r appi opriatioiis. The progr essi ve
and active district of Slocan, which
pays.more taxes in proportion to
population than any other country
on earth, Cuba, Spain ami Armenia not excepted, gets practically
nothing:
Dan Mann and Bill Mackenzie get
$1,600,00) for building a lath track
somewhere between hell and B>b-
caygeon. The same gang get another million or two for building the
V. V. A E. In all, the government
is giving away some five million
dollars for building railroads whicii
it should build and operate tor the
people ; and in most cases the roads
could be built for less than the bonus
anouj)ts to. How this money is divided it is hard to say. There is a
large rake-off somewhere.
Our legislators could not find $r��0)
to improve Carpenter creek. Sandon
may be flooded out, drowned or
washed to kingdom come for ill they
care; or the citizens may do the
government's work and cash up for
it themselves -just as they like.
All this may not lie edifying but it
is instructive. Our council is st
fault. Thev should change their
tactics. Let them ask tor $500,000.
not a paltry 9600. By the time the
different pluggers ^and cappers in
Victoria got their' rake-off there
would probably be about enough
left to fix the creek.
The members of the local legislature are the gentlemen who are
asking for reelection.
A Bad Bargain
Mackenzie A Mann will receive
$4,000 a mile from the Provincial
government for building the Stickeen
Teslin railway. But the road will
not be completed before the end of
the summer of 1899. The only redeeming feature of this iniquitous
grant is that a provision has been
made by which the Province shall
receive 4 per cent, of the gross receipts of the railway. It will be interesting to note what success the
government will have in collecting
this per centage. If no better re-
setts are obtained than so far have
been achieved in the arrangement
that the Province has for a share of
the gross receipts of tbe Nakusp and
Slocan and the Shuswap A Okan-
agan railways, it will have been a
waste of time to make such a provision.���Miner.

BISSELL HEARD FROM.
Back on the Sonsd���Didn't
he was Dead.
Know
A letter received yesterday from
E. C. Bissell, who was supposed to
have been one of the victims of the
snowslide disaster on the Skagway
trail, says:
"I found on arrival st Victoria
Sunday that I had been killed In the
snowslide at Chllcoot pass, but 1
flatter myself that mv bump of
caution is too well developed to get
caught in a snowslide."
The letter is dated from Tacoma.
where Mr. Bissell intends to locate
for the present. This final assurance that EL C. is still in the land of
the living will come as a considerable relief to his many friends in
Sandon.
Blood is Thicker than Watei
Says the Montreal Witness: 'Brit
ish people the world over who remember how the American sailors of
the United Slates fleet in the harbor
of Apia, Samoa, drifting to their own
destruction before the hurricane,
cheered the British sailors, who, inch
hy inch, worked the great British
warship to safety in the open sea in
the face of the gale; who remember
how the American! ships at the capture of Taku forts, at the mouth of
the Peiho, could not refrain from
joining the British in their fight from
ere brotherly feeling; who remeiu-
r how, after the bombardment of
Alexandria, the American men-of-
war there sailed round the British
victors and cheered them, will heart-
fly rejoice over tbe success of their
American cousins."
According to the statements of
leading railway men, and they
Should be able to judge, the war has
not, as yet st sil events, proved the
bonanza for Canadian trade which in
tome quarters was looked forward
to. The general trade is good in
Canada, but this is not due in anv
way to the war. Mr. G. M. Bos-
worth, general freight manager of
the Canadian Pacific, says: "The
Canadian Pacific, and one might say
ill the Canadian roads, of course, are
doing a very large business at present. That is because this has been a
magnificent spring In Canada. If
not one gun had been fired in all
Cuba this would have been a l-nsy
season for Canadian railways. But
if these guns had been fired up along
the Northern Atlantic seaboard it
might have male them still busier."
The internal dissentions which
handicap the Spanish government at
this crisis are in marked contrast to
the unanimity with which all political parties in the United States con*
gress unite to. vote millions for the
prosecution of the war. The S|*n-
lard boasts of his patriotism, the
American puts his hand in his pocket
and produces the evidence.

History of Mining Prospects.
Mining is singularly peculiar in the
instance that it is an industry which
writes its own history on the world's
page of social progress. Prom ihe
earliest times and down through the
ages to the present date this fact
holds good, both in the old and new
worlds. The prehistoric operation
of ore bodies in early and modem
times is an interesting branch si the
geologists work, and the records
made show the advances accomplished, as well as the failure.-, made.
Every prospect shaft or tunnel
stands ta a monument of success or
failure. The permanent marks thus
made tell in future for or against the
industry, utile** obliterated ����r tilled
up, which circumstance rarely hap
pent. It Is this lasting evidence of
mining operations which i* w often
pointed to at being dip to tho risk
and speculative nature of the mining
Industry, when at this date un
certainty only belong* mtbepfot*
pect and early stages of discovery
and expluitation iu the operation of
a properly managed mine.
In our cities ard town*, or even in
agricultural life, then* is me -men
record left of the many failure-* in
all lines of trade and in the profttt-
ions, except in the instance wheral
church is converted litto �� ���tort or
laundry or put to some other use
than regenerating the ui ��ral* <4 its
members. A party goM into bus!
ness and make*, a failun. and iu a
few months another takes his place
in the same or another line uf trade,
and all evidence of the failure is
gone, hut the uiisiicccMfol ^r m
pector who sink- ��� te-,: pit or drive*
a tunnel is not aJtntyt tn fortunate
as to have his lailure jumped by a
party with more capital or e Mirage,
and leave* U hind him laming evi-
donee of his work and misfortune
Instances are oommon where a |*r��*s
pector expected to dlotOVtir one mill
oral and, quite unknowinglv, he was
mining another of equal or m ��rv
value from that which he expected,
or ne was told so by some one with
more knowledge of ores or mineral*
of the value of his diaoovery,
The mining indiHtry, even in lu
proaia*cting stage, U not attended
with greater risks (when the operation is conducted by a miner or pit*
pector of experience and intelligence)
than the risks taken in trade or oott*
nets, although from the fact* before
mentioned, the history of the failure*
is written on the page of nature In
a lasting and permanent way, which
makes them apjwnr ra<*re numerous
than they really are in proportion to
ordinary trade risks and failures.

To   Get  Rid   of Rate.
The best way to get rfd of rats and
mice is not to poison them, but to make
them thoroughly tired of the locality
and so induce them to leave. They are
generally too smart to eat poison, even
when it is prepared for their benefit iu
the most seductive fashion, but they are
not so particular about tartar emetic.
When a little of this is mixed with any
favorite food they will eat as greedily
as though the physic were not there,
but in two or three hours there will be
the most discouraged lot of rats about
the place that anybody evt r saw. The
tartar will not kill them,-it only makes
them deadly sick If you put your ear
to their holes you can hear them trying
to vomit. Sometimes they -will crawl
out and walk about like a seasick man,
so ill that they do not seem tin-are what
becomes of them But it disgusts rhem
with the whole vicinity, and as soon as
they are able to travel you see them no
more.

floor for some time, and was in a brown
study. Finally he turned to his friends,
and," with a "resigned expression of
countenance, replied : "Well, I guess
I have seen about everything."

to*, furnishing of war news to an
excited and clamorous people is one
of the greatest fakes of modern times.
Very little of the stuff that is telegraphed to bulletin and daily paper
readers is true. The craze must be
satisfied and it will be just as long as
the unsophisticated hand out their
money. War news is never reliable
until It has become a matter of
history. Just now literary war liars
are in clover, but how they will born
after death dinks their fertile imaginations.     	
As the elections draws near aspirants for legislative honors are bobbing
op like frogs In a green tipped pond.
We notice that it is a very difficult
matter to procure good men for mem
bets, but yon can (Hit out your hand,

It is now certain that the Le Roi mine
of Rossland has passed into the hand* of
the British American corporation, tbe
great English company that has been
placing so much capital into the Ross-
land camp. The deal was closed in
Spokane last Friday, where the papers
were signed, snd the first payment of
$$00,000 was made in Rossland Saturday. The rest of the purchase price,
$2,500,000, will be paid in installments,
extending over a period of about three
months. ���
Following are the principal stock hold
ers and tbe amounts they will receive,
at ii per share, which is the gross price
of the sale:

"The other* must wait or come back."
lb* had jumped somehow to the eonelu-
���ion that her ladyship, who, as everyone
knows, is one of the prettiest women in

'���You have a girl in your theatre called I
Rose Boss?''
The manager bowed.
,rvV8be *IH*,������ in the Carnival scene of
'Diana Undraped,' wearing a mask, and
*-er���very little else."
."She has a very good agure," said the
manager,
"1 understand that some people think
so,"  said her ladyship, coldly; "Lord
Caroborough is of the number."
"Ah I"
"His lordship spends sll his evenings
at your theatre, and his days in raving
aliout this���er��� Hose Item, and yet up
till tbe present he has never, thanks to
the mask, seen her face, it is her figure
that has captivated him. When he talks
about her���you understand, to his
friend*, between him and myself the���er
���subject is naturally never mentioned���
he declares that she has the finest figure
in the world. That is where tbe women
of the stage have the pull over us other
women, if they haven t a single good
point about them, a man will be sure to
discover one, if they have any pretence
to ap|iearance the other sea will exalt
them iuto Venus***. Now, as a matter
of fact, 1 am sure that my figure is quite
as good as this young woman's, and if
only I could get my husband to pay any
attention to me at all, he woubi be the
first to admit it. My difficulty is to call
his attention to it, and that s where l
want yon to help me."
"I'm afraid." began the manager,
"������I don't quite see."
"You will tn a minute. This Rose
Boss wears a mask ail the time she is on
the stage."
*��� Precisely; she is only on in the Carnival scene, you know."*
"And she has no ac'ing to do, nothing
to say?"
"Not a line, 1 don't engage her to act.
Her role is to lie looked at,"
"Precisely, now 1 want vou for one
night to let me take Miss Boss's pla�� c."
"But, my dear madam '
"You say there is no acting required,
and no one* sees her face. There remains
then, only the question of figure."
"I do not think the** would he any
fault to find on that ground, your lady
ship, only������"
"Only my quest is unusual? Very
well, then rend this." She took a note
from her pockpt and handed it to him.
It was from a gentleman who bad a
strong financial interest in the Atnbigu-
itv, and asked that if it could be done
without causing any serious inconvenience I Jidy < arnliorough should be allow
ed to do am she wished.
Tbe note settled it.
"You had better be here at half-past
seven," said the manager; "You will
have to go on at nine, f shall have to
gel Mis* Koas to take an evening off. It
is beantifnl weather, and she is always
grumbling at the heat up here. 1 have
no doubt 1 shall lie able to persuade her
of the advantages of her little pises lithe river."
And thus it happened that in the Carnival scene in "Diana Cndi-aped" that
night it was I Jidy Carnborougli on whom
all eves were fixed, and Lady I'arn-
bsMengh whom the crowded stalls craned
forward io see.aud whose daring costume
was lire theme of the universal conversation at the close of the second act.
When Lord Carnlrorough got home
that night his wife was already in bed.
"You have been to the Ambiguity
again." she said, her eyes twinkling. i!io
see that dreadful woman."
He came to the tied, and stooping over
her, kiiwcd her.
������|Hi vou know, dear,"   be said, ' I
have   nisde  a great mistake.   1   have
come to-night to implore your forgiveness "
"Yes, dear?"
"You know 1 told you what a magnificent figure ihst woman bad? well, 1
think 1 mttft have had too much to drink
when I saw her liefore, or at least, somehow or other cannot lie myself 1 went
to the Aml'iguity tonight, and saw at

The woman is really quite atrocious; ana.
as for her figure, why, shesimply luisn t

Those concerned in copper mining1 in
Canada will be interested to know that
1897 proved a banner year for that industry in other parts of tbe world. The
metal has been in great demand, and
mining companies have been enabled
to amass big profits.   The continued
large requirements and the consequent
maintenance of prices are reflected in
the dividends that foreign corporations
are now paying for the past year.   All
of the large companies working in tbe
Iberian Peninsula have increased their
payments    The Rio Tinto, which last
year divided its shares equally into 5
per cent, preferred and ordinary, pavs
40 per cent, on the latter, making an
average of 224 per cent, on the whole
for 18*-j7, which compare* with 19 per
cent, for lefts, and 11 per cent, for 1895
The Thnrsis, a very conservative company, pavs 25 per cent for 1897, besides
writing  off |240,000 from the value of
its  property.   For 1893 this company
paid 17* percent, and 10 per cent. for
1895.   The Mason & Barry Company, in
Portugal, pays 6$ per cent, an increase
of 1 per cent, over 18*��, and moreover
repays to stockholders ��l per share, or
one-third of the recent par value of their
stock���a somewhat unusual method of
disposing of the sinking or depreciation
fund.   It has been a busy and generally
a prosperous year for the copper companies. *	
WANT   TO   ftO   TO   WAR.
Nine hundred persons in this city, says
the New York Press, are actively employed on newspapers, and every blessed
one of them wants to go to the front as
a war correspondent. Even the girl
reporter has volunteered. What a very
strange crate this war correspondent
liusinees is! I have had 21 men, by
actual count, to beg men to present their
names to mv editor as volunteers, and
not one of them ever wrote a line for a
newspaper. They are men of means,
and all they care to go for is glory. They
will pay their own expenses. I think
some of them would give $10,000 for the
p ivilege of representing the Press, as it
would enable them to get well up with
tbe firat gun and see the racket nt a sate,
close range. But editors sre loyal to
their men. My editor is crazy to go,
and so is his youngest office boy; but
somebody must remain here to run the
office. Already we have the cook and
the king in the' field, and tbe rest of us
are drawing straws.
There are enough war correspondents
now actively engaged in the manufacture
of belligerent news to whip the whole of
Spain, and I regard it as the duty of the
government to give them tbe best ship
in tbe navy and let them go out to tight
the Armada. If this is not done we shall
have a marine fleet of tugs laden with
correspondents interfering with the
manoeuvres of any Spanish warship that
dares threaten. If "Old Sagacity" only
knew this he woubi think three time*
before turning loose his flocks of sparrows, it is bad enough to fight the
United States navy, and when it come*
down to war correspondents��� Lordy!
lien. Tecumseh Sherman bad fun with
the rel* down in Georgia and elsewhere,
but be bad to fight Whitelaw Keid, war
correspondent, for 20 years after. He
said that Beid was the biggest liar be
ever knew, and Beid said the same of
him. Sherman died under a h\��g of
truce. Gen. Hancock iought Charles A.
Dana until he died. And it was pretty
much the same with all the war correspondents, not because they lied, but
because no two men can possibly see
things in the same light. When Spain
goes against our brigade of war correspondents let her pray.
War has made the fortune of many a
newspaper man. Perhaps the ablest
of recent correspondents is Archibald
Forbes, who "did" the Franco-Prussian
war for the London Daily News. Janu-
arius Aloysiua McGahan, an Obioan,
served tbe Herald in the jame war, but

' "Ainsworth estop i�� -iiii*-��." s*id Gius W.
��� Roche to a Spokesman reporter. In fart, all
/ the north country i* quiet nt present, but there
Is nevertheless crjn��iderable work Iniil out to U-
done this niumper by Ainerieun capital. The
war ha* reianled investment*) sotiM-what. mil
some funds that were avsilalde at one* in Ainsworth are held np to see what will U> Um* resu I
of hostilities. One thiii* that ha* hindered pro-
irres* in Aliiswnrth, and tbe same is true of other
camps. I* that men who an- not prai-liral miners,
who know Hist thev hsve large ore lxdi��*. pro
owed to erect costly machinery Iwfor* develop
in* the mines and letting them iu condition lor
milling. Iu two inntancen concentrators hsve
been erected In Ainsworth snd have stood Idle
for many months tmesus* die. ore bodies had not
been opened up. This ttiv.s the eamp * bad
name, which It doe* not deserve. The ore bodlw
an-there It only requires iiiteli'K<-nt deveioie
merit to brine t' e proiertle to * stage where
concentrators bit neeessary.
But ti.ere Is promise ih*t all this will be rem
edled. I know of one large company that will
start work, though I am not at liberty to id < e
the details now. Maxwell Stevei-non oi the
Highlander mine and cone ntrator, will also
arrive iu camp shortly to n-Kiime work on that
property, and it is stated that funds are in hand
io put die mine On a -mylnfr Imsis. It. Issphn-
didiv ei|*l|>|M'd with inachliiery.
'The Number One mine has the greatest
amount of tunnel Work of any clnim In the camp
and much vnliMble machinery has Itceu installed
under ground.   It Is owned by a Halifax com-

"On the Black Diamond and Little Donald
properties in nun are working and a targe ouan

propBrtv islieing operated by th* men. In order
to iret back pay due them from th* parties who
have lieen operating th* claims under bond. but
who applied tbe Income of the property an the
payment of the bond and neglected to pay the
men. This system ha* bean used too often In
Ainsworth camp. Tbe usual result Is that the
bond is thrown *p, the liner wonder* thai he
conld not make It pay for Itself In �� few month,
and finally leave* the camp and give* It a bad
name.

PORTER'S LUCK.
Said to Haoe Made a Clean-up in
Klondike.
It is reported in Vancouver on
what is purported to be reliable authority that H. E. Porter, who went
to Dawson city last year and recently returned to Vancouver has
made a deal through Governor Mcintosh bv which he gets 1250,000 in
ctsh for nis Klondike claims.
Porter, who went to tbe Klondike
last August, backed bv Jonn A.
Finch snd Byron White, is well
known in the Slocan.
Telegraph to Damson.
From advices received it seems
altogether likely that the telegraph
line from Vancouver to Dawson will
soon be a realization. M. C. Esch-
weg, who represente the company
forwarding the scheme has received
a telegram from Ottawa stating that
the first reading of the bill had been
carried and it -won Id receive the
second reading immediately.
A Rare Treat
Rev. Dr. Sutherland, of Toronto,
will deliver a lecture entitled "Lead-
crsof Men" in Virginia Hall on Monday evening next. Throughout Canada and the United States Dr. Suth-
land is known as one of the foremost
of Canadian orators and his lecture
will no doubt prove s rare treat.
The recent death of that great leader
of men, Mr. Gladstone will make the
lecture more interesting. Everyone
who can should hear Dr. Sutherland.
Tickets on sale at the door. Lecture
to begin at 8:30.
Effect of the War on Mining.
It was not thought that the war
would hsve sny effect on the mining
business in Rossland, but it has.
Mining men and brokers state that
never before has business in their
line been so dull. Absolutely no
stocks are selling. March was so
much better than the proceeding
months that it was believed the expected improvement hid commenced,
out on the declaration of war between the United States and Spain a
reaction set in that has been incrcas
ing in intensity ever since. Hopes
that the war will soon come to sn end
are to be heard on all sides.���Rossland times.
Gold in the Phillipines.
There are large deposits of gold,
both ouartz and placer,in the Philip-
{line Islands, flood pay gravel is
bund in the streams and the country
is a perfect net work of small ledges.
Verv* little development work has
been done, owing to the unfavorable
governmental conditions heretofore
existing and the inaccessibility of the
richer districts, thst are situated in
the interior. It is thought if the
United States were to take over the
islands a mining boom of considerable magnitude will shortly follow.

MACKENZIE COMPANY.
At Spencer's to-niflbt���M uaic Comedy and Drama.
Mr. William MacKenale, Australia's representative Baritone and Scottish Humorist, assisted by Miss Jessie
Glover, a talented young New Zealand Shakesperian actress and Scottish Character Artiste, supported by
a unique company, appearin Sandon
tonight snd Monday evening. That
a rare treat is assured can be readily
judged by the fact that Mr. Mackenzie snd Miss Glover had the
honor of s great social farwell presentation from the Vancouver Caledonian snd Sons of England societies
s distinction never giyen to sny
other entertainers. The programme
is of a most varied character, songs,
duets, sketches, comedy and dramatic scenes, humorous stories snd
recitals, character diliueations and
Highland dancing make up the most
attractive evening smusement. It
need only be mentioned that Miss
Glover appears ss Juliet in the potion scene from Romeo and Juliet
to show the sterling ability of this
lady and that Mr. Mackenzie was
the recipient of an illuminated address and purse from the above
societies, to ensure a crowded snd
expectant audience. Nothing fur
ther need be mentioned than that
the prices are 75 and 50 cents. Reserved seals may be obtained al
Spencer's. Early application is
necessary to avoid disappointment.
The company will visit all Kootenay
towns.
