The appearance of Mr
Lely and  Mrs.   Lely  in the Silver
City on Tuesday  evening  was like
the sudden flashing of two meteors
across our usually sombre sky.
Although    these   renowned    entertainers are  irow making   their
fourth world-tour,  their experience
in Sandon was admitted by Mr. Lely
to be an altogether   unique one.
Without previous arrangement* ad-
vertrsment or .engagement, Mr. and
Mrs. Lely appeared in Virginia hall
four hours after their arrival in town
and the audience that greered them
was sufficiently   large to convince
them at once that the town at which
they   had alighted  on   their  way
through to fill engagements in other j Soverign
places wss an exceedingly live one j WTonderful
Virginia hall was well tilled with an
audience which very warmly appreciated the splendid  treat afforded.
Mr. Lely was seen in tbe Reco hotel
at 6 o'clock, and on behalf ol those
who thought that such an opportunity
might never again be afforded them,
he was asked to sing that  evening,

thoughts of the   people who seemed I Antoine
to be so thoroughly awake.
Mr. Lelv graciously donated the
half the proceeds to the Presbyterian
church, under whose auspices it was
ot British Canadian Northwest Missions, and seconded by the Rev. C.
W. Gordon, Secretary of the Board.

Another Fight at Manilla.
Ixmdon, Oct 20.- The Madrid correspondent of the Times says:
Captain Aunon, the minister of
marine, has received a dispatch from
Manilla announcing a naval engagement between the Americans and
rebels owing to Admiral Dewey forbidding the latter to fly the rebel
flag from their ships. The dispatch
adds that there were losses orr both
sides, but that the Americans captured the rebel ships. The scene of
the engagement is not stated, but it
is supposed to  have beeu in Manilla

In a sermon preaehed last Sunday
evening in Virginia hall, the Rev.
Mr. Cleland in referring to the proposed Presbyterian church, sard that
one reaaon why this work had not
been taken up Wore this time was
that through a species ot generosity
which he had never before witnessed
in his previous experience, the congregation had been permitted to use
for its public services the beautiful
hall which they that night occupied.
It was an exceedingly rare sort of
kindness which had been iDestowed

rate of 3 cents per share. The payment will be made November 10th,
and transfer books will close November 1st. This is the second monthly
dividend, and will make a total of

that the dividends will continue at

Hunter Won't Go.
Victoria, Oct. 17.���Mr. Gordon
Hunter, of this city, who recently
was appointed gold commission for
the Yukon, vice Mr. Fawcett, on
Saturday telegraphed to Ottawa his
resignation of the office. Mr. Hunter
had about completed extensive preparations for a long stay in the
north when it became evident that
the condition of Mrs. Hunter's health
made it inadvisable for* him either t..��
tal.e her to the Yukon with him or
for him to go alone, and Iris resignation, therefore, became inevitable.
News has been received in Victoria
of the appointment of E. C. Senkler,
a barrister of Nelson B.C., to succeed Fawcett as gold commissioner
of the Yukon.
The Largest Siloer Mine.
Tbe biggest silver producer in the
world at present is the Broken Hill
Proprietory Company in New South
Wales, "fhe output of that com
panv's mines for the fiscal year
ending May 31st 1898, was 6,122,270
fine ounces oi silver. The Anaconda
Copper Mining Company in Montana
came second with a pr< doctiou of
5,074,086 ounces of silver. It is
worth noting that in both of these
mines the silver is produced 5n con-1
nection with other metals, at Broken
Hill with lead and at Anaconda with
copper. The latter is principally
a copper mine, since the metal forms
the greater part of the value of its
ores. TheCorupanis Husnchacade
Bolivia has had the operation ot its
mines seriously interfered with the
past two years by water and other
mishaps. Its production in 1897 was
151,995 kilograms, or 4,884,673
ounces of silver. This is not much
more than one-half of the maximum
output, which was reached in 1893,
ana was 281,007 kilograms, or 9,014.-
385 ounces.
product to dvallsls he haa succeeded
in obtaining gold in a colloidal condition, in which state it is soluable in
water and may be precipitated by
the addition of common aalt. It is
probable that some of the gold In
quartz reefs exists in this condition,
ft is washed out by the rain, carried
away in solution by the rivers, and
deposited in the river gravels where-
ever there is anything containing
salt to cause its precipitation. In the
course of ages s large nugget may
in this way be formed."

A Big Enterprise.
While New Brunswick and Quebec
clsim to have the best available
areas of spruce lands in the world
Ontario haa been able to attract the
attention of the strongest English
syndicate that has taken up tbe pulp
business in Canada.
The Occidental syndicate has
secured from the Ontario government
a concession of 75 square miles of
spruce lands on the Sturgeon River.
The company claims that pulp wood
can be supplied to the mill on this
stream at f2 per cord, or about one-
third what it coats in the United
States. A small pulp mill, the first
of the group, was set in opera tion
the other day. It is propose*! to
erect six paper mills. The agreement with the goverment calls for
expenditure of fl.OCUOOJ In plant,
and the operating capital is placed at
12,500,000. The yearly output of
pulp is to be 360,0i) tons.

The officers were at once notified,

The ore will probably prove to In-

At a distance ol a little over seven

Ferguson will enjoy au enviable position among the mining towns of West

Thomsous Landing is situated at the
head of navigation on the Northeast
Arm of Upper Arrow lake, and it is at
this point that transhipment of freight
and baggage for Trout Lake Citv, Ferguson and Ten Mile City takes* place.
This town is a most important one, from
the fact that in addition to its being at
the head of navigation on the Arm, and
therefore the point at which all freight
is transferred for shipment to the in-! ^"i f��_"d
terior of the district, and from the fact'
that all ore from the mines on Lardeau
creek and Trout Lake will be hauled
there prior to shipment, H is also important because it will to a great extent
be the centre  of  supply for the Fish
Creek district.   Up Fish Creek manv
valuable prospects have been discovered, and aa the result of late development operations   have exceeded   the
expectations of  persons holding property in this district, it goes without
saying that this creek will receive a
considerable share of attention from the
many moneyed men who are expected

neighboring districts during the coining

and has a general store, post office and
blacksmith shop    Mail can be sent out
and received  daily, and a telephone
service connects this place  with  the
inrerior  and outside points    It is an
excellent place from which to prosecute
inquiries into the values of either Fish
Creek or Trout Lake ore bodies.
About six miles above Ferguson and
near the head of the South Fork of
Lardeau creek is Ten Mile City This
place, although it is as yet in embryo,
Is likely to prove quite as lively a point
as there is in the Trout Lake district,
from the fact that several rich prospects* the hope of that section, are
situated on the mountains surrounding
thin little town. At present it is pos
sensed of but one store, one hotel and a
liverv stable. But as the properties
before mentioned will be vigorously
developed this coming season, it is con-
tidentlv expected by manv fully com-
petent'to judge, that Ten Mile City will
keep pace with the section of the countrv with which its interests are immediate! v identified. It will be connected
bv wagon road with the main road to
Thomsons Landing as soon as the season is sufficiently advanced to permit of

SANDON. B.C.. OCTOBER 22, 1898
Some papers in Kootenay are publishing advertisements for a big
departmental store in Torotto. This
is a tree country and papers can do
as they like in snch matters, but we
would not do it. Although it requires
extraordinary exertions to make our
business pay we would rather throw
our press into the like and chop wood
for a iiviug than advertise any white
slave shop. Cheap prices and cheap
people will ruin any country, and
although the Slocan business men d<
not patronize our columns to any rash
extent we will never try to keejp
even by advertising that curse in
disguise���a cheap eastern store.
Sir William Van Horne is the
most patriotic man in Canada���to
bear him tell it. He is, indeed, the
Simon Pure article bottled up in the
shape ol man. Occasionally when it
suits his parpose Sir Wil Ham's patriotism bubbles over, and he delights in
bis method of dropping it about the
country in chunks, hoping, no doubt,
that some of it will fool his hearers.
On the trip that he has just made into
the Kootenay, which he also delights
in calling his "annual tour," he was
most particular to impress upon all1
the newspaper reporters how import
ant it was that the people of Canada,
and especially those of this province,
should worship at the shrine ot
"patriotism," and contribute tithes to
support this false god set up in the
land bv that illustrious American. Sir
William. Speaking ot this great
American president ot the Canadian
railroad, and referring to hia hugh
patriotic heart arid how it bubbles
over, fhe Tribune of Nelson says
some good things:
"Sir William has a habit ot con
fusing the interests of the railway
company with the interests of the
people of the dominion, and appears
tube under the impression that so
long as the interests of the railway
com parry are conserved the patriotism
of the people of Canada should prevent them from making any com
plaint. One evening of last week
Sir Will'am was tendered a banquet
by the Winnipeg board of trade,
when he undertook to make some
capital for his company. He called
BJPOO all Canadians to keep 'he trade
ot southern Itrltish Columbia for Canada, which is another wit v of saying
tor the Canadian Pacific Railway
Company. This remark pnved the
way for a reference to the Boundary
creek railway question Sir William
then informed his entertainers that
the Corbin railway systems had been
turned over to the Great Northern
Railway Company, and that the new
owners would be at Ottawa next ses
sion for the purpose of securing a
charter for tho Kettle river railroad.
The president ol the C. P. R. which
desires to perpetuate its monopoly
over the whole ot British Columbia,
then declared that It will be a nation
al shame it the federal government
allows a railway company, devoid of
patriotism, to give Boundary Creek a
railwav service free cf charge, for
which the patriotic Canadian Pacific
is charging several miliums of dollars.
It is safe to say that Sir William Van
Horne would have some ditliculty in
convincing the peopla of Hnundary
creek that pstrlotisor requires them
to siiboidinate the interests ot their
promising distiict to tlwae ot his
state-aided railway company, >��t
that is exactly the argument he is
warns slavery.
The departmental stores of Toronto
are a thorn in the roses of commerce
throughout Canada. By buying their
goods cheaper than oilier retail merchants, and the employment of white
slaves, they sre enabled to ship goods
all over the Dominion. People save
a little In many cases by dealing
with them but in the end such a
course must be disastrous In this
Province wages are higher, ami
goods dearer than in any other part
of Canada. If people earning high
wages buy all or mosf-of their goods
from these big cheap white slave
stops, we, in IXC, will have to come
down ti the level of things in the
east. If we want to keep even with
them goods must be sold cheaper snd
$3 s week clerks employed. All
other labor will have to conform to
the circumstances and (rod help a
country when it is filled with white
slaves like the great store* of Toronto employ. If every merchant
paid the same lor his good*, and a
law was psased msking s certain
standard for wages the departmental
store would become obsolete and the
country as a whole more prosperous.

There is no reason why our own
prospectors and Halm owners should
not make this profit themselves, as

better chances of making his pile than

Mr. J. C. Baton, the well-known
BtoCSO mining man, has left for Snn
Francisco with Mrs. Eaton. Mr. Eaton
recently sold his interest in the Whitewater mine to an English company, call
ed the Whitewater Mines, limited, one-
third being; retsioed by his partner, Mr.
.fohn L. KetnJiack, and Major J. M.
Montgomery. Mr. Baton ie now opening
up the Madison group, one mile above
Sandon, which he says is otdy a prospect.
In telling of the prosperity that has
come to that section he made a striking
contrast  between the conditions when I
he first went there and those existing
J now.
"I have just come out of.the Slocan,"
said he. "and the mines are producing
more than ever.   The advance in the
price of silver has made mines paV to
work which did not pav before.   The
silver-lead portion of the kootenay country is producing a great deal  more than
the gold portion; to fact,  more money
will come out of that district than w ill
come out of the Klondike this year. The

having shipped n few dollars less than
fOOU.OOO ��n the first six  months ot this
year.   The Whitewater is putting in a

Mr. H. K.  Brown is putting in a new-
compressor plant, and i? starting a large
tunnel  from  the Kaslo creek level.    1
should  think it would strike ore at a
depth of 70> feet vertically  Ulow the
present workings.   The List Chance is
putring iu a new  tram, which strikes
tne  railroad a mile and a  half above
Sandon, and haa become a wonderful
produ.-er.    Mr.  Brown is   building up
tlte town of Whitewater, and has put up
a house of lt> rooms at the mine.    When
1 went to set* him the other day he "sk-
ed me if 1 wanted to take a bath, Baying
he had two bath rooms. ' Why,  I  built
that trail to Whitewater with my own

Spaniard, snd his chest girth ia nearly
2 inches grestsr. These are points thst
count. ..    ,
Of course, sine is not everything in a
aoldier. Never in history haa it counted
for ao little as it does to-day, inasmuch
as modern warfare is conducted ehisuy
hy machinery, battles are fought at long
range, snd hund-to-hand encounters are
rare. Ths Japanese are smaller than
the Spsnlsrds, yet there sre no fiercer
fighters; ths American Indians, on tha
other hand, are Suparior in stature to the
Yankees. But, other things lining equal,
the bigger man ban an advantage. The
Yankee is the tallest of civilised men;
in Europe the Norwegian approaches
him nearly in thia respect, and the Englishman ia a full inch shorter.
During the recent war attention wss
psid to tlie gathering of statia'ic* of all
aorta relating to the soldiers. Thin was
done to soma extent during *hc civil
conflict, snd some of the most interesting facts noted had to do with the varying stature of recruits from different
porta of the country. Ths biggest men
came from Kentucky, averaging a trifle
over 5 teet 8** inches. Clone behind
was Kansas, with Minnesota. Mi aouri,
California and Nevada, following in the
order given. Ths men from all these
states averaged about 5 feet 8 inches.
Maine, Illinois snd Michigan fell two-
tenths of an inch below that mark, snd
next cams Ohio snd Pennsylvania.
Maaaschusetts and Connecticut were at
the foot of the list, the volunteers from
the latter states sveragins only 6 feet 6 V,

skarer, who wtmld be presiding officer,   would  hsve the veto power in

council would require to be selected
from  the   Yukon district and to be I
tax payers and be entitled to a vote
it elections, etc., as well  as  being
British subjects.   This part of Major
Walsh's report will doubtless engage
the favorable attention of the government, and it is more than likely
that the Yukon t.overnment set will
be amended next session in this direction.

Must Want It
Sandon must want the Comique,
judging from the vote   taken on
Thttrsday.   About  100 votes were
polled, and the Comique was elected
to stay.    Sandon  is allright, and
should make laws for the balance of
Canada.   If the Dominion law were
enforced the Comique would never
have had an existence.   As it is the
Corporation of Sandon is liable for
any trouble that may arise from it
The voters of this cjty have given a
majority in favor of such sn Institution and the rest of the community
Will hsve to abide by it. Sandon laws
are evidently   supreme and most
be respected.   It is now in order to
take a vote on the question of whether
we will allow churches in" the city
or close them up.   The citizens cannot serve two masters. The majority
{irefer Mammon  so Christ and his
ollowers might as well be voted out.
Then we could turn everything loose
in this burg and have a hell of a
town; one that would satisfy  the
most ardent lover of everything that
is damnable and depraved.    Let
heirs work go on. and give old Kick
a bonus to work his graft to a finish.

In many of the mining camps of]
the States the prosperity of the community was measured by the number
of faro games running. For instance
Baker City at one time had twenty-
two. There are only three there
now and things are more or leas
desolate. Two weeks ago Sandon
did not have anv. Now there are
three, and bucking the tiger is s
common pastime with tbe sports of
the Silver Citv. It the number
should climb to twenty-two where
would tbe city he at �� Prosperity
would be so thick that it would not
be taken notice of. Such is life in
the wild and silvery west
