With the exception of the matter of
transportation, which will be settled
today or Monday, all arrangements
tor the Great celebration on tabor
Day are about complete, and there
is every indication that it will be by
tar the greatest celebration ever held
in Sandon.
The programme has been all fixed
up and presents a handsome array of
prizes. The drilling contests, hose
reel races and horse race will, of
course, be the most important feat-
uies. The first prize for the drilling
contest will be $150, second prize
ISO. A new feature in the way ot a
single-handed drilling contest' will
also be introduced. The first prize
in this is a 150 suit of clothes, tbe
choice of his stock, given by D. C.
McKenzie, representing AH. Loug-
heed of Toronto. The second prize
is a $12 psir of pants, given bv E. J.
Robie tbe well-known New Denver
tailor. This is the first time a single
handed drilling contest has teen
held in Kootenay, and as almost all
work iu the Slocan mines is done in
this way it should find favor with
the miners of the district
In the hose reel race the main
prise will be $103, w th smaller
prizes for coupling races. It is not
definitely known yet how many
teams will enter for this competition.
Kaalo will certainly be here, but the
Nelson people are as yet undecided.
First snd second prizes of $75 and
$25 are offered  for the horse race,
open to all  Slocan  horses, which of
course means anything except ito
ported running stock.
Besides these prizes the running,
jumping, pole vaulting, prospectors'
race, mule slow race, etc, etc., go to
make a long list of prizes that will
total a handsome sum.
In the evening the prize tight between White the Wisconsin butch
erboy and Percy Wilkinson will
come off in the rink. Both men an
in good training and it promises feu
be a hot number White has a rec
ord and is well known in many
parts ot the United States. It is significant that those who know Wil

be in attendance to supply the music
of the day. Special trains with re
duccd rates wil be run over the K.
A S, and the C. P. R. Nothing will
be left undone to make the day as
enjoyable aa possible.
From advices received from out
side points there Is no doubt that the
celebration will be highly successful
and a great days sport may be look
ed forward to.
the mine-owners and citizens of San
don will be called on to furnish the
other half. Last week J. D. Gieger-
ich took hold of tbe proposition and
is getting it down to a business basis.
Some substantial subscriptions have
been promised from mine owners in
the Idaho basin, and H. Giegerich,
H. Byers A Co., Geo. Hughes and
others have put handsome figures
opposite their signatures. It is probable that work will be commenced
in a week or ten days.
This is a road that should be built
and "Shady" is doing a public service in taking the active part he does
in the matter. The business people
of Sandon will be acting in their own
best interests to "dig np" aa liberally
as possible for the undertaking.

������There is a sucker born every
minute "is one of the oldest adages
extant. It is undoubtedly true, except that the number of suckers is
underestimated, or else a greater
percentage of suckers must have
emigrated to this district than are to
be found elsewhere. Though the
8irface indications may not show
this characteristic of Sandon's popu
lation, a very short acquaintance
with the people of this burg will convince anyone that such is the case.
A pt-ddlar dealing in fake jcwelery
or shoddy goods will always catch
his marks. The bankrupt stoek-
auetioii-sale man never fails to do
business. Any kind of a cheap show-
that will chsrge high enough prices
at the door will get a crowded house.
A patent medicine man, phrenologist hypnotist, fortune teller, or any
other 'dealer in moss-grown fakes
has only to hang out a sign and tie
town is his. The soap artist, shell
game man or the three card shark
should make a harvest. There art-
plenty of us to work on.
But Sandon people fairly out-do
themselves in dealing with the
Comique. Of all the played-out,
worn-out . hackneyed, thread bare,
stereotyped games in the world the
Comique is the Isst of all that one
would suspect a man of intelligence
ot ever throwing his money against.
Yet this institution does business in
the city of Sandon every night in
the week with men who are suppose J
to possess common sense and who
would be adjudged sane in any court
in the land.
It seems almost incredihle that a
crowd of ancient females without a
vestiage of education, refinement
talent or accomplishment can come
to this city from Palouse, Puyallup,
Snohomish or some other hay-Rube
district and work the Sandnuitcs to
the extent that they do.
Any old damsel who blows in here
fi-ora "Spokane or anywhere else,
generally without half enough
clothes to flag a bread wagon, a
purse that look- as if an elephant
had tramped on it, and a general
appearance that would stop the
wster in the Carpenter cieek flume,
has only to pose as an "actress" and
she will find herselt on the crest of
prosperity's wave.
But it was ever thus, and will
probably be so to the end of time.
Even Solomon, tlie wise man of
ancient times is said to have kept a
thousand or more of these people on
tbe string. Marc Antony slutted off
an empire for one of this species.
Great Caesar had dancing maidens
continually iu attendance and it the
truth were known it is probable that
they had hard luck stories and
abnormal thirsts even for those dsvs
of cheap booze. The natives ot Slocan who blow their good money
against this game are no better and
no worse thsn those who came before or they who will follow after.
It they cannot learn better how jto
take care of their filthy lucre then
the strong arm of the law should
reach out and remove their stumbling
er. There arc men around this town
who could cat him up. We ourselves sit in a poker game every
night at Red Mike's ���*���- ***- -���-*���-
where the ante
corresponds to a week of the Gold
Commissioner's salary. We chew
tobacco that costs $5 a plug, and
have other manly habits that Faw-
cett turns up his nose at
Now, we have no kick coming at
Fawcett's rake-off, whatever that
may be. We believe in letting even-
man play his own game, and truth
compels us ro state that in this Godforsaken climate we have to play the
game mighty quick or it is called on
account of darkness. We apeak feel*
ingly of Arctic darkness, because we
know what it is to get out The Nog-
get when tlie coal oil freezes. Indeed, the weather may be deemed
rigorous when tbe boiler has to be
blanketed to keep it warm.
However, this is aside from the
subject. We wish to draw the attention of the Dominion Government
to the Gold Commissioner. Fawcett
is objectionable. He is not en rap*
port with the robust spirit of this
community. He has too much regard for law ind order���a thing nn
known in a United States mining
camp. He doesn't drink whiskey at
Red Mike's���fusil oil, we call it-he
doesn't go in for the ironclad soubr-
etts of the dance halls; he doesn't
draw his gun without provocation;
he doesn't shake dice, play faro, shoot
crsps ; in short, Fawcett'has none of
the verile qualities that are needed
in this progressive city.
He is not sociable, and more than
that his personal habits are offensive
to many of us. Most of our citizens
consider it healthy to change underclothes and take a hath once a year,
whether we need it or not. We our-
self have had one hath and two
shaves since the summer of IKI The
rules of hygiene, as taught in the
schools of the effete east don't apply
when the thermometer drops to 70
below. Most of our prominent citizens, we repeat, think that Fawcett
is altogether too scrupulous shout his
underclothes snd his solutions. He
has a beastly hsbit ol "tubbing"
every morning, he shaves three times
a week, wears a boiled shirt when
the weather permits, and has been
known to born $4U5 worth of cord-
wood to heat water for a hot bath.
Thia is too much. Fawcett is a stand
ing affront to those hardy virtues
which have made Dawson the Queen
City of tlie North. We ask the Dominion govemment to remove Faw
celt for lib Sybaritic effeminacy.

Newfoundland has jnst concluded
s contract which, if possible, belt*
Clifford Sifton'a remarkable Yukon
deal. By this contract all New
fonndland's mineral resources, with
the exception of the mines already
worked, which include only the Tilt
Cove copper mines and a few deposits
ot Iron and chrome ore, are put
under the control of one man. This
man, Mr. Reid, la a contractor who
has just completed a railroad intended to open up and develop the island,
and the colony being unable to pay
him otherwise, has mortgaged its
minerals to him for a period of years,
giving him the right to prospect,
to develop and work mineral deposits
to the exclusion of other coiners. The
interior of Newfoundland ia almost
unknown, but the new railroad
gives access to a considerable part of
it, and opportunities for further exploration.

Mr. Cross isSilverton's townsitesgent.
He also held a three months option on
the Fidelity, which expired some weeks
ago. When Williamson and Holtt sold
their interest in the Fidelity and the
money was paid over, Cross claimed
about llftO for past services in connection with the mine. This claim wa* for
work performed prior to the giving of
option to Cross, and in the agreement of
option he relinquished all claims whatsoever airainst tbe property, be agreeing
to take all compensation (if any) from
Uie sale of the Ftdelty by him, but he
was not able to bring a sale about during
the life of his option, and so laid claim
for the amount previously owed him.
He based his claim on his assertion that
Williamson and Holtt bad broken the
agreement, which they tacitly denied.
They produced the agreeunyit in court
relinquishing them from all indebtedness. Frank L. Byron testified in sup-
pert of Cross* claim and judgment waa
rendered accordingly. An appeal was
taken and payment of judgement held in
abeyance.-���The Ledge.
For years Kootenay has   been a'
paradise tor women of commercial
virtue.   They have been allowed to
exist with very little attention from
the law, and are very prominent in
many camps, notably "in Nelson.    In
that city they ply their trade oi. the
priucipnl street, and deal out liquor
at double  rates  without  paying; a
license.   It is about the same all over
Kootenay.   The \m\ ies of the crimson
curtain seem tu be a highly privileged class in this glorious mineral
country, except in Brooklyn. In that
camp the other day  a  man  from
thicago drifted into' Lizzie Olcsons
luaison de joie and woke up in ihe
morning shy about $80.     As a result
Lizzie and the versatile Sadie Woods
obtained  an  introduction to   Major

���The Ledge.
The   War   and   Silver   Mining.
The ultimate effect of the Spanish-
American war on the industry of silver
mining will be extreme. It will lead up
to the free coinage of silver or the discarding of silver as a money metal by
the nations of the world, except in its
restricted sense ss a snbsidisry coin.
There will be no half-way business alnrnt
it. It is not impossible that the new era
.if expansion u|hui which our country
is undoubtedly entering may lead to a
commercial activity and growth that
will mske the larger use of silver imperative and result in free coinage. If it Iw
true that the volume of (business is
measure of safety in the matter of bimetallism then a commerce infinitely
larger than we now enjoy may convince
all of the utility of the joint use of gold
and silver at the established ratio.
On the other hand, if it becomes possible to conduct the business of the nation
through exchanges based on gold values
relatively smaller than now, without
distress and with safety to business interests, then silver will be relegated to
the back ground and its value fall proportionately. Used in the arts alone it
will be mined only as a by-product.
This is a crisis in the. silver mining industry. A short time may determine a
line of action that will elevate Uie white
metal to Uie standing it is entitled to
hold in the financial exchanges of the
world, or debase it beyond the immediate hope of reclamation.���Butte Western

Woman's   Mysterious   Ways.
We have often in these columns called attention to the mysterious ways of
the opposite sex. After a further study
we have discovered that, among other
idiocyncracies, women pin from left to
right, whereas men (you could have
gambled on this) pin from right to left.
Women button from right to left,
and men from left to right. Women
stir their tea from left to right, while
men stir their mixed features from
right to left. It appears we will never
get women to do things right.���Lance.

It seems to have been an easy
matter tor Charles A. Semlin to form
a government. It required just about
one day for him to get together his
political advisers srd name a sufficient cabinet to go on with the- governmental business. On the 15th the
following names were submitted, and
appointments made by the Lieutenant
Charles A. Semlin, of Cache creek,
as Premier and Chief Commissioner
of Lands and Works.
Francis L. Carter Cotton, as Minister of Finance.
Joseph Martin, as attorney-general.
On the 17th Robert E. McKechnie,
of Nanairoo, was added to the cabinet
as President ot the Executive Council,
and on the 20th J. Fred Hume was
made Provincial Secretary and Minister of Mines.
With the new cabinet installed
p&ace will reign once again, and the
business of the Province will not be
further upset by the necessity of
another election, as has been feared.
When the Legislators meets in February there Is no doubt that what wss
the Opposition will be able to rallv
enough supporters to Mr. SemlinY
policy so that they can have a working majority. Of the new cabinet
nothing need be said. The gentle
men constituting it are experienced
legislators and of the right adininis
trative ability. There is much for
them to do in the way of advancing
tbe interests of the Province, and
particularly with regard to Its great
mineral resources, and we hope every
possible effort will be honestly put
forth in this direction.
We have reached the beginning ol
the brief open season in tbe Yukon
country, whew communication with the
region is possible by water and tho
country can be reached without the
difficult and dangerous crossing of the
mountain passes from Dyes or Skagway, says the New York Engineering
and Mining Journal. It is necessary to
speak of these as the only winter lines
yet in use, since neither the Copper
River nor tbe Stickeen Hi ver route has
proved practicable up to date This is
the season when tbe clean-up from the
winter work is completed snd returns
from the prospecting and mining carried en through the cold season msy be
expected. Several arrivals from Dawson by way of the Yukon river and St.
Mrcnaeis have been recorded, snd the
retwrtrfiig sd venturers are beginning' to
tell their stories.
The predictions and jesses���they
cannot be called estimates*-*-of those in
terested in booming the country hsve
not been realised, as we hardly need
to sav. The $80,000,000 which we were
promised has been gradually dwindling
down to a much more modest sum. The
fijst arrival from St. Michael brought
$8,000,006, according to the dispstches;
but fuller accounts msde the amount
actually in gold very small, snd stated
that the bulk of the money was in
drafts, and a large proportion of these
did not represent gold taken out, but
claims sold to new-comers. In the esse
of gold actually token out and deposited with the commercial companies or
banking agencies, It must be remembered that (he amounts are very likely
to be duplicated. The miners'arrivals,
with their drafts, are recorded in the
dispatches, while the shipments of the
metal from the agencies again find
place in tbe news columns. It requires,
therefore, careful siifingof tbe accounts
to determine the actual amount.
What appear to be the most reliable
statements ray that the Canadian authorities so far have collected royalties
on about $4,000,000 geld, fund that they
hsve knowledge of nearly $8,ujo,iwu
more, ou which they expect to recover
tbe Uses. Practically all the gold obtained from the Yukon region during
tbe season wss on Canadian territory,
and is included in the amount on which
these taxes are lev.ed. It is impossible,
of course, thst some gold hss beeu snd
will be brought out which escapes the
notice of the authorities snd tne consequent taxation, but tbe aggregate of
this will not add very largely to the
total. Our own estimate ofa return of
$s,000,000 or $8,000,000, w�� were told in
several quarters would have to be revised. It will be revise*!, but in tbe
sense of a reduction, not au increase.
it is impossible to state exactly the
number of miners and prospectors now
in the Yukon region. A late estimate
i�� that there are now ��),(**> people in
the district of which Dawson City is tbe
center; but this seems high.' On a
reasonable basis, and with full allowance for those who made their way
through too late to work during the
season, there were about 15,000 people
last winter in the Yukon country, tin
this basis the average return "for the
year was less thsn $150 per man That
is, the amount gained was not, 011 an
average, equal to that which the man
would have earned working for day
wages in the mines of California or
Montana. But iu either of those Mate*
the amount would have supported him;
iu tbe Yukon it would not buy him a
sufficiency of the coarsest food, to *ay
nothing of other necessaries- There
have been, of course, a very few Instances of large returns; but the average man who went to the Klondike iaat
year lias been living ou the supplies he
took in with him, and has not earned
enough to replace them. If he has done
that, he is a fortunate exception to the
Perhaps the most discouraging news
is that the active exploration which lias
lieen going on baa not enlarged the
area upon which the rich claims have
been found, that being still limited to
the creeks and valleys where the first
sensational discovers were made.
ohxy ea.ooo.ooo.
Han Francisco.��� K. K. Leach, superintendent of the United States mint, is
in this city, snd estimstes thst the gold
output of the Klondike this year has
only been shout $5,000,000. The receipts
at the mint here amounted to about
$1,760,000 since the first arrival of Yukon
gold, s few weeks sgo. The receipts of
the Seattle assay office have been about
the seme. The largest single deposit at
the mint here was $12,000. Mr. Leach
estimstes thst about $250,000 in dust and
nuggets has gone east, and that there Is
about $1,000,000 of this season's output
yet to resch this country. It is stated
that the dust brought out by the North
American Trading A Transportation
Company was sent east, sod was not
included in Mr. Leach's figures. This
amount might possibly reach $500,000.
Prom this showing it would appear that
1 $15,000,000 would be a safe and conservative estimate ol the entire Yukon output, including; the American side a* well
as the Klondike.

has been made with the Victoria authorities whereby the time has been extended until "next year. We would like
now to hear what excuse the Government has for conceding this extension
of time It is manifestly the duty of
the Government to insist on the im-
mediate compliance ot the railway
company with the terms of its agreement wfih the Province. The subsidy
was voted as au Inducement for the
earlv completion of the road, and there
would be no sense in granting it if this

We quote the official report: "We
note some special facts, such as, for instance, the fainting of men on the
works; the refusal on the part of teamsters, whose wagous were hardly
loaded, to give a ride to wounded
men; some threats of a foreman to ki�� k
them; the refusal of food generally to
all men discharged or quitting work,
and the hardships experienced on
account of this, throe men having to
subsist for a whole day on one onion; a
pinch of salt refused to men leaving

salt fish they might catch. All this

Most peoople are aware of tbe necessity of exercising care in the uae of tbeir
eym, but are ignorant of tbe rules by
which they should be guided to obtain
the best results. So much in modern
life, aud especially ii city life, demands
an alertness of vision snd a concentration of the sight on objects at close
range during all ages that it is not surprising that the eye should deteriorate
long before the physical |h>wots otherwise show signs of decay.
Beginning with early childhood and
continuing far into advanced youth,
eveu to early manhood and woman-
hood, the eves are called upon to do
constant and unremitting tod in competition for education iu our schools,
and this during a time when tbe eyes
are in process of development from an
immature state, just as the rent of the
system is, aud hast able to stand overstrain such as would be tolerated after
full maturity.
This concentration of vision during
the early formative Htatres can r,-**ult in
but one thing���namely, arreat of de
vclnuuteiit of the even, s*o that at maturity an imperfect eye remains to assist
us in the fulfillment of our early
We are thus compelled to bring to
our daily affairs xuch a lack of visual
energy as to ruin the prospects of sue-
OSfSJ in many (tranches of endeavor.'
We are debarred from the profession,!
or, at least, handicapped in our every
competition; we are compelled to pursue
the arts with halting steps and with
drooping wings; we are destined to rind
the large tieldof clerical work uiipr >ttt-
ahle, aud are compelled to re* Tt to
such mercantile pursuits as can lie tawt
conducted without close application of
the eves Not only does this occur, hut��
overstrain of the eyes means iu manv
cases overstrain of the brain centers, so
that a species of nerve exhaustion results, characterized bv St Vitus dance,
I twitching of various musclcauud violent
headache in youth and confusion of
memory, chronic headaches, vertigo
and nervious prospratiou iu later life.
These are but a few of the nerve re-1
suits, and It Is not surprising that these
should occur when we consider the
physiological action of the. oven <
In order to fix an object at close
range, it la neceaaarv to forcibly contract a certain powerful muscle within
the eyeball Itself This mnscte controls
changes in the convexity of the tens of
the eye that focuses objects upon the
nerve coating within, through which
impressions are conveyed to the brain.
Also, having two eves and each eve
receiving its own individual Image,* it
is necessary in order to convey to the
brain one clear and single Impression
that the eyes should converge toward
each other at a fixed anirle when looking at objects at clone range, and thia is
effected by certain other mnseles ex-
I terior to the eveballs that route them.
' Thus it is "evident that to til the
vision upon an object at reading or
1 working range, and te keep it there
continuous! vlor an hour or so at a time,
would require a high degree of sustained tension of eye tnusciea,such as would
not be UderaUid by any other muscle of
the body. How many of us are able to
hold our arm extended outward for
more than five minutes at a time? And
vet the biceps and shoulder muscles engaged in this work are rated to be the
strongest muscles of the body.
You will ask: How can these tendencies be corrected, and how can these
dangers that you have mentioned be
avoided? My answer to the first is, by
consulting some good aud reliable
oculist Ten chances to one, the case
needs glasses to cot red some ermr In

they* should be enjoined by legislative
enactment, as they are in many f.��r��dgn
countries, front giving gta*s***s or advice

My answer to the second question, as

is by otiservitii; tlte*e wimple rules that

Most peoople are aware of the nwess*
ity of exercising care iu the use- of their
eyes, but are ignorant of the rules by
which they should be guided to obtain
the best results. So much in modern
life, aud especially i*i city life, demands
an alertness of vision and a concentra*
tinn of the sight on objects at close
range during all ages that it is itot surprising that tbe eye should deteriorate
long before the physical powers otherwise show signs of decay.
Beginning with early childhood and
continuing far into advamed youth,
eveu to early inauhoml and woman
hood, the eyes are called upon to do
constant and unremitting toil In competition for education iu our schools,
aud this during a time when the eyes
are in process of development from* an
immature state, just as the real of tbe
system is, and least able to stand overstrain such as would be tolerated after
full maturity.
This concentration of vision during
the early formative stage** can result in
but one thing���namely, arrest of development of the eyes, m that at matur
ity an
us  in
We are thus compelled to bring to
our daily  affair*) such a lack of visual
energy as to ruin the prospect* of sue-
ceas in  many   branches of sndeavor.
We are debarred from the profession,
or, at leant, handicapped in our every
competition; we are compelled to t.ursue
tbe arts with halting steps  ami   with
drooping wings; we are destined to flud
the large tieldof clerical work unprofitable, and  are compelled to re* ��rt to
Much mercantile pursuits as can la* Im**1
conducted without clone application of
the eyes.   Not only does this occur, lint i
overstrain of the eyes means iu manv
cases overstrain of the brain centers, so
that a species of nerve exhaustion results, characterized by Si  Vitas'dance,
twitchhigof various tmiftclesiiuil violent
headache   in  youth  and confusion of
memory, chronic  headaches,   vertigo
and nervious proapration iu later life,
These are but a few of  the nerve re- j
suits, and it is not surprising that these
should  occur  when   we consider  the i
physiological action of the eves
in order to fix au object at close
range, It is neceaanrv to forcibly contract a certain powerful muscle within
the eyeball Itself This muscle controls
changes in the convexity of the lens of
the eye that focuses objects upon the
nerve coating within, through which
impressions are conveyed to tlie brain.
Also, having two eyes and each eye
receiving its own individual Image,' it
is necessary in order to convey to the
brain one clear and single impression
that the eyes should conver/e toward
each other at a Axed antrte when look-
at objects at close range, and this is
ted bv certain
tertor to the eveballa that rotate them.
Thus it is'evident thst to fix the
vision upon an object at ^diiwor
working range, and tu keep it there
contintinuslvfor an hour or so at a time,
would require a high degree of sustained tension of eve musctes.such as woultt
not be tolerated by any other must le of
the body How many of us are able to
hold our arm extended outward for
more than five minutes st a tune? And
vet Ihe biceps and shoulder muscles engaged in this work are rated to be the
strongest muscles of the body.
You will ask: How can these tendencies be corrected, and how can these
dangers that you have mentioned be
avoided;'' My answer to the first is, by
consulting some good and reliable
oculist Ten chances to one, the case
needs glasses to coirect some error in
refraction, ir It has developed some incipient disorder of the eyes that ueed*
moat intelligent investig.it ion and
treatment. Do not submit it to au
optician, or a simple vender of gt.i*.e*,
as you tberebv run great risk of |>er
idanent impairment of vision These
men men do not understand tbe physiology aud ptUhoijsfy of the eye, and
thev should be enjoined by legislalive
enactmet.t, as they are tn many foreign
countries, from tfivtiiggla.*jf**j*i*radvi��e
without a preacriiduai from an i*-uli*4
My answer to the second question, as
to how these dangers can bo avoided,
is by oliserviiig the*** simple rules that
are thus formulated:
First���If a Ui'ld show* ev��d��*nee of
backwardm**** in sUKJies and rein. tan< e

Second-Instruct your children not u
keep their eyedght fixed upon ��,
object at reading range for more than
one-bal. hour at a time Ut them look
off at distant objocts for lo or IS nnnm��
and then resume work for another
half-hour. This rule is also applicant-
to adults
Third���Learn to relax youreveMskt

in the street, and to use just snoart
vision to accomplish its pur p..*,. {��� ���
