f THE PAYSTREAK, SANDON, B.C., jyLY 9   1898.
Australian Federation.
The time has not yet come for Australia to take its place in the Empire
as a dominion, notwithstanding the
fact that Tasmania and South Australia favor it, while in Victoria the
Federationists are as five  to one.
The stone on which all federal projects come to grief is New South
Wales, the largest and most important of the Australian states.   Federation without New South Wales is
out of the question, snd the big colony will not have it   The enabling
act there has been amended by an
act which provides thst only with a
majority  vote of at   least eighty
thousand can the   colony join the
federal union. The voting has shown
that out of a total electorate of 293,-
0C0, onlv some 68,000 favor federation, while those who took the trouble
to vote against it numbered 53,000.
The federation movement has thus
been badly defeated,  and prospects
for the new constitution are small for
the present.   The foregoing figures
show,  of course,  that   the   great
majority of the electors did not vote
st all, whether from indifference or
Northern Pacific Buqs the S/. & N.
There is every reason to believe
the story that the Northern Pacific
Railwav Company has purchased
the Corbin railway systems which
tap this district from Spokane. It
was generally understood that the
Canadian Pacific Railway Company
was dickering for the purchase of the
Corbin roads, and that it was this
business that took Corbin east. If
the Northern Pacific Company has
secured the roads it will be because
the company offered a larger price
than the Canadian Pacific.
forty members of parliament; as
manv dukes and earls, four archbishops, nearly all the bishops, Cardinal Vaughan, leaders of all the
Nonconformist bodies, heads of
nearly all the colleges and great
public schools, the mayors of fifty
cities, and the principal literary men,
painters, journalists, barristers and
judges in the United Kingdom. The
league makes a close approach to
the throne, through the Duke of
Fyfe and the Marquis of Lome.
The general belligerency of the
American Republic has Infected the
oil. It explodes on the smallest provocation. It kills forty every year
in London, Eng., snd the House of
Commons has been moved to interfere. In spite of the opposition of tbe
Standard Oil Trust, the flssh point of
the oil has been raised from 73 to 100
by a committee of the house, and a
bill will make the provision law this
session. It remains to be seen
whether the gigantic Influence of the
trust can treat British law as It has
the law of the United States.
Northport Smelter.
It is confidently believed that it
will be but a short time before the
Le Roi smelter will once more resume
work. At the present time, however, everything is shut down and
the consequeiice* of the same have
been keenly felt by the merchants
and others who are benefitted by the
Ctyroll. In the meantime the plant
as been thoroughly overhauled and
the machinery put in first elass condition for an early resumption.
In spite of the vsst resources of
Canada in water powers, scattered
from the Atlantic to the Pacific, tbe
chief development in electricity of
late has been in the railroad work,
and not in the generation and transmission ot energy from the water
power centers. So the president of
the Canadian Electrical Association
has announced, deploring the fact
that at Niagara especially, no development has been at all possible on
the Canadian side, for an United
States company has secured tbe
franchise there, and evades the contract to develop until its work on the
United States side of tbe Falls may
begin to repay the investment. The
activity around the Niagara Power
Co's plant in New York and tbe
empty fields on the Canadian side,
where the power house site is marked with a post bole, form a contrast
sufficient to make a patriot curse his
country's rulers.
The Anglo-American idea is indeed
a compelling one. In London tbe

Emperor William of Germany,

to Palestine, is going to take a look
at the eastern problem from a front

be escorted through Palestine by
Turkish troops, and aril) return ti

Five hundred Indians, camped at
Fort St. John, refuse to let police and
gold hunters go further north without signing a treaty. They complain
that miners have>tolen their horses,
and that an influx of whites will
drive away the fur animals. The
poor Indian, it seems, is not to be
left undisturbed, even in tbe snowy
regions of Fort St. John.
Tba gold output of the Klondike
for the season is estimated at traV
000,000, which is divided among the
following creeks and tributaries:
Bonanza 17,000^000, Eldorado 110,*
000,000, Hunker *2,000,000, Domin*
ion t250.000, Sulpher 1150,000. The
estimate is said to nave a solid basis
in facts, and not to be rose colored.

effect that a very large amount of
money has changed hands In that
camp during the past tew weeka
This is an exceedingly favorable indication, pointing towards tbe tact

leveral gambling establishments open to

school of economic philosophy, are

encountered in the west, has no discoverable connection with the "balance of

origin. No doubt it is founded on a
modified form of the French monarchical theory, snd the man who holds that
an institution is "good for Uie city"
adds, unconsciously, "The city, that is

Rambler, by keeping the miner poor,

steady trade for all lines depending on
his custom.
In the group of mines around Sandon
Uie Payne is Uie chief shipper, and
though its owners are reticent as to results, there are got*! grounds for U e
claim that it has yielded profits greater
than Uie Le Hot. There is a crusher st
the mine, and tlte ore is brought down
thst mountain by a three-rail gravity |
tramway ti.uuo f��-et long, with a vertical
drop of 2,500 feet. A car witb Ave tons
of ore makes the trip, or rather Uie
drop, in eight minutes. The track is
built on trestles for much of the way,
but there are several snow sited.*.

SANDON.  B. C. JULY 9, 1898
What does Mr. Green promise to
do if elected? Tack himself ss s tail
to tbe opposition kite, that Is all
Some people will be Green enough
to vote against Retallack on Saturday,
bat, as a rale tbe majority of tbe intelligent voters will mark their
ballots forjobn L.
Bob Greek is a first-rate fellow to
sit on a piekle barrel in his own
grocery snd tell tbe boys fish stories,
bat when it comes to being a legislator for tbe great Slocan he becomes
like bis name and would wither
away under the strain ol public life.
What is the use of electing a weak
man who promises nothing if elected?
A man without a party, without a
policy, without force snd legislative
ability to carry forward the banner
ot tbe rich Slocan, can do nothing bat
obstruct legislation and retard progress in the district he represents.
Evert Slocan miner knows whst a
scab is, snd the trouble tbey have
caused tbe working miners of the
West. Every Slocan miner should
know that there are two scab newspapers in this district and they sre
both asking that R. F. Green be elected for tbe local legislature.
Some men in tbe Slocan do not
want to vote for Retallack because
they have heard that some of the
Government people were Catholics in
religion. Men of this stripe belong
to another age and should go bsek to
the grave of superstition and stay
there. They are sadly oat ot piece
in this age of freedom and advanced
No doubt Green bas had designs
upon the E C. Legislature for many
years, and bas worked the glad hand
and winning sm'le whenever tbe opportunity presented itself, thereby
hoping to win votes when the time
arrived. His plan of action has been
fairly successful and many man will
vote for him from personal friendship,
Voters ot this kir.d do not study the
interest of the district in which they
live. They would vote tor Bob if lie
wss deaf snd dumb, by allowing
their heart to rule their brains.
��� For years we have been desirous
ot seeing the silvery Slocan repre
sented st Victoria by a man with
force snd brains enough to see that
We received ail that wss due. The
opportunity has at last, presented Itself by John L. Wet*I lack becoming
a candidate for the local legislature.
He  has been a   soldier,    pecker,
banker and miner, By bis own
efforts he has made a fortune in the
Slocan aud no one can truthfolly say
that be is not honest or short of ability.
He is just the kind of a man tbe Ski
can needs at Victoria, and if he is not
elected next Saturday the country
will quit loser.	
It was a hot night in Hades, and
Ananias had crawled out on the roof
to cool bis heated imagination. One
of Bob Green's political meetings was
going oo in Kaslo, and as old Ananias
cocked his ear be caught onto all the
speeches. Later in the evening he
wss heard to ronrmur, as he fanned
himself with a coal shovel. "Bless
you, my children. The old man is
proud of you. You beat his record
all hollow."
Reproductions have been made by-
Mr. Green's organs of criticisms taken
from this paper denouncing the gov
eminent for certain bad pieces of
legislation passed by the last legislature. We are pleased to see thst the
weight of these criticisms is rt-cog-
nized. Our position then on these
questions is our position today. Tbe
senseless pieces ol legislation criticised by us than deserve no better
criticism today. Tbe fault of such
legislation was quite as much that of
the opposition members as of the government supporters. What some of
the government members Iscked in
brains and legislative ability tbe
opposition tailed to supply.
Tbe opposition members acted like
so many sheep without a bell w. ther.
Their principle seemed to be * every
man for himself and may tbe devil
take the hindmost."   As a result they
accomplished absolutely nothing for
their constituencies.     The government members hsve some pieces of
good legislation to their crr-dit, and
while they  passed some measures
thst will never receive our endorsement, tbey acted wisely in many
matters affecting the Kootenay. and
have done much to regain the confidence of the electors of this riding.
It is to avoid so tar as in our power
the  possibility  of sending another
do-nothing member from the Slocan
that we oppose tbe election of Mr.
Green.   However faulty the party in
power may have been in tbe pest in
Its policy towards the mining section
of Kootenay, it is infinitely better
than no party at all.   Four years ago
the opposition could claim a leader
whose principles were  sufflclentl*.
known to at least command a hearing.
In tbe last boose that party flew to
pieces and today there is nothing left
of it but a handful of ���Independents.'*
whose principle seems to bo for self-
aggrandizement and personal gain,
with little or-no regard for the sec
tlons thev represent.
Through the election of such men
nothing can be gained. They have
failed in the past and will do nothing
in tbe future.   It ta to get a man who j
has tho ability and force to do swne ���
thing for tbe riding that we support |
Mr Retallack.     Not because he Is a i
government mau, but because he is
a Slocan man; because he is a man of j i**^l        rHm- *��� ******

" K-t-da, deal, la Ute Pedro and Lulus
groups. Tbe former of these promrtivs
"* situated up Canyon creek and com*
prises three claims, tbe Pedro, Black
lack and Solo. This property bas two
veins running through it and as the re-
"ult of development operations some
very fine ore wss ssposed which gsve
returns, when subjected to s test, of
'-.10*. ounces silver, |o gold and 17 per
cent, copper, giving a total value of
si.22i.7ft per ton. Then there were
other assays, one from tbe upper and
'he other from the lower vein which
Kave returns, from the former 2,021.44
'������>nces silver and the latter 1,238.74
���mnces silver. These last esmples were
not tested for gold or copper so it is not
"'���own what the values in these minerals
w'��ild have been. Both of these veins
������[<.; strong snd well defined, being trace-
��hie for a considerable distance. The
"I'l-ervein  is from  two and a half to
three feet wide and tbe lowar shout two j
feci and the character of the ore is a
galena heavily impregnated with grey
copper. The owners of this property,
the Hamlin brothers and P. A. Lindgren,
intend after the trail up Canyon creek is
complefd to sto in for a thorough de-
velonment of these ore bodies, snd they
confidently expect that before next fall
the property will lie in a fair way towards making a shipment of ore.
Then further down on Tenderfoot
creek, a tributary of the Lardo river,
about three miles below the foot of the
lake, Uie Lulus claim has been showing
up remarkably well. The lead on tflia
property is ex-ioaed for over 'AW feet snd
throughout that distance averages from
four to twelve inches of solid galena and
a-rey copper. Numerous a-waya have
been taken of the ore atari)* the surface
and they run ali the wav from 80 to 400
ounce* of silver and 7$ per cent. lead.
Since early spring work has l*een going
on on this property and the 50-foot tunnel which is lietng run to tap the lead at
adepUiof 70 feet is now drawing near
its completion. When the vein is encountered it is expected that some very
rich ore will he struck. The Lulus is
owned by a company known as the Gold
Mining and Development Co., aud its
headquarter* are at Spokane.
Another etaim on the same creek

At a recent meeting of the Spokane
Clearing House a*t**ociatiou at which alt
the S|��okaiie banks were repn*seiited, it
was decided that on and after July 10
next, Canadian money would only be
aeeepted at a de-count of two per cent
The S|*��kane bankers sav t'u-y have lost
money everv time tiny accept ed Canadian* monev at par. and that the
discount to be inlawed will Im* hardly
���oifHcent to pay for disposing of the cur-
reacy. Uudef the new revenue law on
the cither side, an American bank cannot put Canadian money into circulation without a tax of 10 per cent, thereon This necessitates shipping the
bullion back lo the nearest Canadian
hank to have it exchanged, and the
exlHMtae connected with this is wtid to
ainount to noarlv two per cent of the
amount involve-! It I* estimated by a
orominent Spokane banker that the
Canadian money passing through the
Spokane banks amounts to 1850,000

Is This True.
The following remarkable utterances have been attributed to Augusts Carney at a meeting held in Sandon on Thursday of last week:
"I saw 60 men who had
sold their votes, loaded upon
a barge at Kaslo like sheep
and taken to the Lardo-Dun-
can country, where the Gov.*
crnment is spending $10,000
to corral 60 votes for its can**
didate. The country hasn't
got even a 'pot hole' to justify the expenditure of that
Is this true?
Can it be possible that these men
who sre so well and favorably
known in Kaslo have sold their
birthright for a chance to earn a few
paltry dollars by hard labor and
under very trying privations at this
season of the year ?
Let these silent witnesses answer:

had no votes, being Americans, not
a dollar was being spent. The B, C.
News of July 5th contained the
following article:
"A good sized force of men are at
work on the government Improvements and extensions of trails and

Do the relatives and friends of
these alt-sent ones believe the motives
imputed to them by Mr. Carney ?
l)o you believe the sterling manhood that has so endeared these men
to their families and their friends
has grown saddenl> debauched, snd
that they are no longer any better
than "sheep'?
This charge is thus brought home
to the famines and friends of the
above named men who are at this
time usin/ their best endeavoas to
bring the I.ardo*Duncan country to
fuller development, and who were
selected, not because they had a
vote, as the list contains nearly 50
per cent of non-voters, but for the
reason that nine-tenths of them are
financially Interested in thst section,
and it was thought thst these men
better knew snd understood the
wants and needs of the Lardo-Dun-
can country.

One weekly paper in this country
Is remarkably candid about its circulation, and  is also kind enough to
make open confession of its yearly
revenues and expenditures. Its total
circulation is 1,575 copies, of which
only 83 are  paid subscribers.   The
publisher even gives sway the deadheads : judges, public departments,
the exchange list, etc.   Its expenses
last year amounted to $4,377 snd its
total  revenue was 15,291��� a   tidy
tittle surplus of over fSMXV. The paper
gets out extra editions on occasions,
just like tbe rest of us, snd appears
to have promise of a bright future

being accused of inconsistency, snd

Smoke No
The miners in the Slocan are not
stuck on scsbs. If they were it is
not likely that ��3.50 would lie the
daily wsge in this district. Scab
newspapers, scab printers and scab
miners are all In the same class.
The only newspapers in this riding
supporting Bob Green in this election
are scabs. How does that suit the
noble and hard-handed miners of tlic
Slocan ? Will they feel like voting
for a man who is  backed   bv  scab
Gapers, and boosted on the platform
y a gang of spouters who would I
damn the cause of the greatest noli-1
ticisn on earth. Bob has made a
fatal mistake in conducting his campaign which should lie a lesson to
him in the future.
