The Bachelors' Ball.
The bachelors of Sandon have
finally decided that it is up to them,
and will entertain their friends at
Virginia hall on Tuesday evening
next, 18th. Two hundred * invitations were sent out yesterday and
more are to follow. All the elite
west of the Great Lakes and north of
the Rio Grand will be invited. It is
tbe intention of the bachelors to
make thb the moat brilliant event in
Sandon's galaxy ot  social successes.
Coohinq School.
Considerable interest is being
taken in Miss Livingston's cooking
lessons, tbe attendance so far being
about 20. Tbe fixtures of a model
kitchen have been fitted up in the
class room in the Crawford block,
where the cooking demonstrations
are given before the school. Tne
product of each days cooking is sold
to anyone who cares to buy, and the
class is beginning to realize that it is
worth speaking for.

A New Departure in Plumbing.
During tire excessively cold weath
er of a tew weeks ajjo a large nurn
ber of private water pipes and some
of the street mairrs were frozen up
solid. The problem of how to thaw
these pipes our was a difficult one,
and the prospect of having to dig
them all up was not cheerful to the
To avoid such a serious task E. C.
Bade, who is a past grand master in
the art of plumbing, determined to
try a process which has recently
been adotpted in such centres as New
York, St. Petersburg and Minneapolis.
A current of electricity was switched from the light wires and connected
with the street main by the hydrant
at the Reco hotel. Fifty feet further
along a hole was dug and another
wire attached, making a complete
circuit via the water main under
ground. The dynamo was then
turned on to its full capacity and a
current registering 300 ampers, 80
volts sent through. The result was
all that could be desired for tbe
water was soon flowing freely. Section after section the p'.pe was thaw
ed tut in this way and the system is
now in perfect order.
In one instance a half-inch pipe
that was covered for 80 feet wss
treated for three minutes with 280
ampere, 50 volts. The temperature
was raised in that time from somewhere below freezing to 80 degrees.
Still Badltj Mixed.
t o New Denver. Silverton is ad
vertising a lacrosse game between
Nelson and Sandon. Sandon has no
lacrosse team; and New Denver
claims to have a game arranged with
Nelson for the championship of the
Regarding the base ball game, the
following is from the Nelson Tribune
of Thursday:
"Tbe management of the Nelson
base bail team has not decided yet
where the team will p ay on the 24th
of May. New Denver offers the
largest purse for both the base ball
game and the hose team race, but
the Sandon ball team and hose team,
which are required for the contest,
have announced that they will visit
Silverton and not New "Denver. If
the Nelson boys can induce the Sandon teams to meet them in New Denver,,the local boys will go to New
Denver, but otherwise they will be
obliged to ao to Silverton and com
pete for smaller parses."
The Sandon ball team held a meeting on Monday evening at which it
was decided that the ball team would
go to Silverton on the 24th of May to
play the Nelson team. Tbe following officers were elected : Wm.
Walmslcy, Manager ; P. H. Murphy,
Captain *, Fred W. Bailey. Secretary.
Last nigl��t the ball team received
assurance from Silverton that the
Nelson ball team and hose reel team
would be in Silverton on the 24th to
compete with the Sandon teams.
In the meantime Kaslo is offering
$125 and expenses for the ball game
and 1150 for the hose race, with no
prospect of being accepted. Kaslo
ites are hostile about Sandon's action
in going to Silverton, and point out
that on the 5th of September last
when Sandon celebrated Labor Day
Kaslo moved over in a body, while
the Sandon celebration committee
had to make good part of the 160
guaranteed to the C. P. R. for an excursion from Slocan lake points.

three rival towns promises to become

Luchu Jim Mine Sold.
(Nelson Tribune.)
A. R. Browne, the mining man
who has been in Kaslo for some
months past representing the English capitalists who control tbe chemical process for extracting zinc from
ore, has purchased the Lucky Jim
mine from the Braden Brothers of
Helena, Montana, represented by
E. J. Matthews of Nelson. The purchase price is not given, but ft is
likely a good round sum. Tne property includes a good working tramway and compressor, and haa
considerable work done on it. E. C.
Ward, formerly of the Whitewater,
has been placed in charge and is now
engaging a force of men to start
work at once. Mr. Browne evident

fc. The Paystreak.
They Decide to Follow the Band and
Base Ball Team.
The regular meeting of the Fire
Brigade was held in the hall Tuesday evening. After the preliminaries, C- E. Bade was elected Foreman, vice "'Rich" Dean who is now a
resident of Boston.
The question of giving a ball was
brought up and Messrs.. Gusty, Bade,
Lawson and Nash were appointed a
committee to review the situation
and to name a date that would not
clash with the Bachelors' ball, which
will be held in Virginia hill on
Tuesday next, the 18th. It is probable that the Firemen's ball will
take place during the first week in
The qu'-stion of celebrating the
Queen's birthday was next brought
up and a lively discussion ensued.
New Denver, Silverton and Kaslo
had all beeu heard from, each making a good offer. Kaslo, from the
fact that they have always been very
liberal in patronizing Sandon's celebrations, expected to get the Sandon
team for the 24th. But a division
showed that Kaslo had only one
supporter. New Denver was still
worse off as it had no support whatever. The brigade therefore decided
to go to Silverton to meet Nelson.
A certitii d cln*ck for the amount of
the prize money and expenses will
be requested of the Silverton committee, with an additional guarantee
that irt case of iro contest the money
shall go to the team that appeal's.
Nelson is exrected to provide the
appartus as S; union cannot take its
hose reel out of town wirhout in
enrring a great risk to the city.
It is hard to comprehend the logic
which impells the Fire Brigade to
break faith with their old friends the
Kasoboya aud to go instead ton
town that has no water works, no
streets lit to race on .and not even a
bucket brigade to i*ive a return race.
Considering that they are gotn_
there to meet Nelson, which town
has never sent a team to Sandon, it
is a lino; t as unreasonable as the base
ball team's action iu accepting a
lower offer from a town that has not
even an excuse for athletic grounds ;
or of the band, which accepted 50 per
cent less than could have been obtained for their services by wit holding
i heir offer for one day out of 54.
However, logic does not count in
such transactions, and the band and
base ball club feel perfectly satisfied
in making arrangements which cannot but influence the action of the fire
brigade, the principal attraction on
such occasions, without consulting
this body or considering ��� the future

As an initiative a meeting was
held in the Reco hotel on Tuesday
evening at which an executive committee was appointed and empowered
to proceed with the work of organization A shatter will be applied
for and it is the Intention to have
represented all the silver lead interests of not only the Slocan but of
Nelson, of the Fast Kootenay camps
and, iu fact, all the districts in B U.
producing litis class of ore.
The objects of tbe association are,
it is presumed,what its name would
imply ���an association of mine owners
for the advancement and protection
of their interests.
As the silver-lead industry In Canada has interests peculiar to itself it
is not the intention to include other
branches of mining in this organ iza-
tion. "The Kootenay Miners Protective Association" which at one
time was calculated to represent the
interests of the mine owners, is now
thoroughly deceased, and hut indifferently performed its objects during its existence. So far as Slocan
mines were concerned its machinations were a disadvantage as some of
its most prominent members identi
fyed themselves and the association
with the movement to have an ex-
pott duty imposed by the Dominion
government on lead ore going into
the United States. h

The progress of mining development
in Canada is now so rapid that when

are found to deal with past conditions
and to present statistics having an historical rather than a commercial interest.    The Geological Survey  report

mineral production down to the close of
the calendar vear 1897, and for that
rear the Canadian geld output headed

As a result of the passage of the Alien
Exclusion Act a number of Chinese and
Japanese claim-holders and miners in
Cariboo have, we are informed, recently
made application to the Gold Commissioner of that district for naturalization
rights. When this bill was passed it
may be safely assumed that such an
effect was not contemplated; and whatever may be said for and against the
employment of Mongolian cheap labor
by industrialists in this country, few,
we   imagine,   would be  prepared  to
{ro to the extreme of welcoming
ow-caste Orientals as fellow-citizens,
and as such entitled to all the privileges
���including the franchise��� enjoyed t>v
native-born British subjects in British
Columbia. Yet, under our present
laws, it is quite within tbe bounds of
possibility that ere long a Mongolian
vote will*have to be considered in all
political contests. It is true that at
the recent Provincial general election,
naturalized Chinese who appeared at
the polls were refused permission to
register their votes by the officials, but
it is questionable whether this action
would have been sustained had the
matter been taken on appeal to the
courts. The question of allowing Mongolians to become naturalizud British
subjects is a very serious one, which,
unless steps are taken to prevent it, will
at no distant date assume, much more
formidable proportions.���B. C Mining

expenditure that increased expenditure
cannot be thought of The report of

that any such c intention is not based

two months the big p'ant of the Le Roi
Mining and Smelting company has resumed work. The long shut-down has
worked considerable hardship on the
big force of men ordinarilly employed in
and about tbe works. A new blast furnace is in course of construction, and
when completed tbe plant will have a
daily out put of about 600 tons of ore.
Daiiy shipments from the Le Boi mine
at Rossland to the smelter are being
made, and when ore is shipped from the
Columbia and Kootenay mine, it is believed that not less than from 600
to 800 tons of ore will be treated
daily. The plant, when in full operation, employs from 900 to 400 men, and
disburses in salaries from $15,000 to
>20,000 monthly.

Dollars and cents cannot measure the

many hundred or thousand or 'million
dollars Perhaps, in a higher civilization, the answer will, be given in terms
of service; in what a man can give to
society, not in the amount of money he
has received from it. "So-and-So," we
shall then answer, when questioned, "is
worth a great deal to society: be is a
skilful surgeon, and relieves suffering;
or a great teacher, and inculcates wisdom; or a good blacksmith and does
honest work." The clumsy measure of
wealth will lie laid aside with the clumsy
order that it fitted.

SANDON. B.C.. APRIL 15, 1809.
The old plan of trying- to develop
mines by sales of treasury stock has
practically been abandoned in this
section. It was productive ot too
manv failures, and, as was the case
particularly in the Kossland camp,
where this method was worked to
death, ���oo many "dead corporations."'
The Spokesman-Review sizes the
matter up correctly in a recent issue.
Under the old method a group of promoters would organize a mining
company, divide the promoter's
shares among themselves, set aside a
part of the stock for the treasury, and
invite the speculating public to pat
up the funds required for develop
ment. If tbe public failed to respond,
as was usually the case, thecompan\
came to an end of its resources, work
was suspended, all interests lost hope,
and the company "winked out" of
existence. In many instances debts
were contracted and tbe companies
lost tbeir property. The assessment
plan has been found much more satisfactory, and a combination method
of treasury stock and assessable
shares is also meeting with favor.
Under the assessment plan, each
stockholder must contribute his share
of the funds required for development.
If he refuse, sufficient of his stock
will be sold to meet the assessment.
But it will be well to remember
that tbe assessment plan can be made
to lend itself to gross abuses. In the
hands of an unscrupulous management, it can be made an effective
means ot persistent plunder. Invest*
ore should be suspicious of a management which may show a secretive
disposition and try to withhold information concerning the expenditure
of tire company funds and the results
of development. The trick of concealing the true condition of a valuable mine, while the stockholders
are discouraged by persistent assessments, in order that tbe management
may depress the stock and buy it in
at sacrifice prices, is as old as corporation mining. Only one means of
circumventing the dishonest mine
official has ever been or ever will be
invented, namely, don't trust your
money to his manipulation.
rHKPAYSTttKAK^SAMH'N- B, C. APRIL tt, im.     ^
IUIKM   Of   A   1J1T1K   oitti..
Victoria Colonist thinks, is suliicient
to swell oar total contribution to three
millions, which is equal to $20 per
head for 150,000 people. At that
rate the people of the whole Dominion
ought to contribute upwards of h
hundred millions to the revenue, or
more than two and a half limes their
actual contribution. Those who do
not care to accept these figures may
vary them as they please, except the
amount first named, which is official,
and the result will be that the people
are paying far and away beyond
their share of the taxes of Canada,
from the per capita point of view.
This is not to suggest that some special means should be drvised to
lighten the taxation of British Colombia, for that would be both absurd
and impossible. The ides, is that the
province shou'd receive something
like a relative share of the public
expenditure. Not that there ought
to be expended in this province two
and a half times as much per capita
as in the other provinces. What
ought to impressed upon the public
mind is that the province is more
than paying its share ot the cost ot
keeping the Dominion going, that
every dollar expended irr opening
the province and bringing in nopula-
tion means a direct return to tbe
revenue two and a half times as
great as money spent for similar pur
poses elsewhere, that the province
has in a sense a vast sum to its credit
in the shape of a surplus of its con
tributions over all tbe expenditures
ever made on its behalf, and therefore
that, when demands are made for
consideration in the future, they are
entitled to respect not only on the
score of fair play but on good business principles.
In the year ending June 30, Wm,
British Colombia contributed to the
revenueof tbe Dominion the enormous
sum of $2,319,963, not including the
large amount paid in the shape of
duties and excise on goods purchased
in the eastern provinces for consumption here,  which later amount, the

Sometime ago tho Victory-Triumpn
property. Kossland. was dosed do��vn,
and the"cause was nor understood until
a few days ago. when word reached
Kossland that explains the reason of the
temporary suspension. This property
has Wen Void to a company known a?
the Trail Creek Mining Company,
which has a capital of ��80,0��X) sterling.
As soon as details of organization have
been completed it is understood work
will be actively resumed, and this is a
question of but a short time. It is believed that ithe Victory-Triumph will
prove a most valuable property and be
a big shipper. Its showings of ore at
present are large.
During the month of March Moyie
shipped 20 cur loads of ore to the smelter
at Trail. This is in the neighborhood
of 412 tons of a gross value of 832,960,
and a net profit to the mine owners of
nearly 816,000. The St. Eugene shioped
370 to ��s and the Lake Shore made up
the b, .lai^ce of 12 tons. Since the first
of February, 1899, Moyie has shipped
822. tons of ore of a total value of over
135,000. As there were 28 days in
February and 31 days in March, 59 days
in all, it "will be seen that Movie's ore
shipments have averaged considerably
over 81,000 per dn; for that time.
The Kaslo & Slocan 'rain encountered
the Lucky Jim slide on Saturday and

iu the group,  the   Adams,   Brandon,
Katie f)., Sarah B., and Hill Top Fraction    The claims were located in Ulfti,
and development by means of tunnels
has proved the existence of large and
valuable  veins     One  thousand   two
hundred feel of runnel  work has been
done on the properties, and two shipments of ore  have  been  made, iu all
about four tons, which netted the owners, after paying all freight and smelter
charges,  105.50 per   t<m      Within   a
radius of two miles are situate*) the big

the market has not been inactive. During the week the Jumbo (liosslamlt lias

over 1,600 feet of work done on that
property ami the directors announce that
the available tnonev will lie used in de

Slocan stocks have been in demand,
plespite the eight-hour agitation. A
Sandon report says any eomptfoetMM
which have been expected to arise as
an outcome of the recent eight-hour
enactment will probably be obviated
by a mutual agreement between the own-
em and working miners to allow tbi*
matter to go hy default As the act
provides that uo prosecurion can b<*
undertaken except by Uie Inspector
of Mines, Or by the order of the Minister of Mines/the Slocan district may
still remain a "$3.50" camp, if such an
arrangement can be satisfactorily con
There has been some demand recently
for Wonderful stock, and 54 cents are

to contain an extension of the 1 'aytie
ledge, is being bought n$ at from 2*4 to

Two Young Hen off New Dencer go
Down in its Tredheroua
On Sunday evening* last F. B. Jeffrey and J. O. Todd of New Denver
took tbe steamer Slocan for Ten
Mile, intending to relocate aome
claims that had run out. They took
with them a canoe and grub pott two
meals, intending to return next day.
As they did not arrive on time
friends became uneasy, but thinking
they might have gone to Slocan City
no move was made until Thursday
when word was received that they
had not been ��een there.
On Thursday morning' a search
partv started out, one boat under
P. J. Linqulst taking the west shore
and another under the captaincy of
Ed Shannon tbe east. The Shannon
party discovered the canoe on the
beach north of Four 'Mile point,
where it bad been washed ashore,
bottom-side up. JeffreyTa coat had
been found by a Silverfon *oman,
south of the point. The >two. boats
prospected along the east snore and
found Todd's hat and overcoat and
one of the paddles.
Prof. J. Mill ward, weo was painting in Silverton, reports that he saw
a boat with a small, dirty sail opposite the town about 10 o'clock on
Monday morning. This undoubtedly was the boit as the description
answers. The ill-fated craft must
haue capsiaed shortly after being
seen as the Slocan made her regular
trip a little later without tbe crew
noticing anything unusu-tl.
The catastrophe had cast a *gloom
over New Denver. Todd, whose
home Wits in Ontario was a relative
of Mrs. Shannon of New Denver
Last year he prospected orr Ten Mile
and was well known about Slocan
lake. Fred Jeffrey belonged to Na-
naimo and has been in Silverton and
New Denver for two years, having a
tinsrnithing establishment in the let
ter place.
Both have many friends in Sandon
to whom the news will come as a
terrible shock.

'  (Spot���^man-Review.;
Greenwood, RC, April 10. -There
is great, excitement here over the
discovery of placer gold on a portion
of the townsite north oi the business
centre, caused by the opening ot the
new channel for Boundary Creek
that has been constructed jointly by
the townsite owners and the Columbia A Western railway. Dozens ot
claims have been located for several
miles up and down the creek, and
the owners of. the townsite are threatening proceeding at law against the
locators, who say they will work the
ground if they have to do so with tbe
aid of shotguns.
Tbe discovery-was made by three
American,'formerly residents of Montana aira Washington. Work is
being done wttiV nans and rockers
all aloutf ttte creek, and the kodak
fiend is out k>f����r#e taking snaps st
tbe placer diggings. In earlv davs
away back in the'70s, considerable
placer gold was taken from Boundary creek, but the results were not
as a whole satisfactory. Todav 's ex
citement has recalled stories told by
the old timers of the rich finds of
former davs in this locality.
