tmd their skill at a discount thru the
suppression of hlack jack, stud poker
and other financial games, have removed to other pans in search of a
location where their abilities will be
appreciated.
The celebration of Thanksgiving day
in Sandon was scarcely perceptible.
Some of the stores made a slight show
of closing, but the gin mills went right
strait along and the rain poured in a
manner not calculated to remind weary
pilgrims of old-fashioned New Knglanil
hospitality or the good cheer that goes
with the Thanksgiving festivities back
on the old homestead in the east.
Thansgiving in Sandon was a frost.
A Fire Brigade. Wanted.
Sandon is seriously i < need of a fire
brigade. Notwithstanding that the
recently-purchased apparatus is as good
ax money can buv, the citv is practically
without protection thru ihe lack of an
organized brigade. This is a very-
serious case, ai d unless immediate
steps are taken to organize a department the insurance companies may be
expected to cancel whatever policies
they have issued and to refuse Sandon
risks at any prire. What this would
mean to business men is loo evident to
need mention.
begin with. Neither, for that matter,
was the mineral annex to the Spokane
fruit fair. But it is certain that it
would from the commencement prove
an eye-opener to outside mining men
and an enormous advertisment for the
unequalled mineral riches of the district. Why cannot the energetic citizens of Rossland, which should be the
point at which such a fair should be
held, tade the  idea  up  and   mark the
Now that the long nights of winter
have arrived and the people of the silvery but sunless city have theencant'tng
experience of spending sixteen or eighteen hours under the sable pall of
Egyptian darkness> it is about time for
the council to step in and rectify the
deficiencies of nature and supply the
city with light.
In some parts of the city the lack of
Klemm Was Rolled   Barton Got Six
Months.
Harvey Barton from (irand Forks
and Valentine *IMemm from the Sovereign mine started am to have a good
lime on Wednesday evening on a check
which Valentine had cashed for the
occasion. Toward morning they retired together in the Kootenay house,
Klemm with $35 in his clothes and
Barton with a longing desire for possession ofthe same. His desire got the
better of his honesty, and in the gray
of dawn Barton hit the ties for the
Slocan lake country with Klemm's
colatteral. Chief Stubbs overtook the
culprit in Slocan City and accompanied
him hack to Sandon'. Yesterday morning Barton pleaded guilty and elected
speedv trial before "Judge" Lilly, He
got tlie limit -six months. By the aid
of an attorney Klemm got back about
%2Q of his money.
Should  Haoe a  Kootenay Mineral
Exhibition.
The Revelstol e Herald says : In this
year's expositic 1 Kootenay earned off
over fifty per cent of the prizes m the
mineral section and many ot the awards
that went elsewhere were for mineral
products such as we have yet n.ade no
effort to produce. This too m competition Wi,h mining states ot such hrs

Washington. While fully apprec.atmg

Want Relief Monet* to Build a Sidewalk on Reco Acenue.
The following petition has been
handed around by A. David and has
been signed by every business man in
the district affected :
To his honor, the mayor of Sandon.
Sir :
We the undersigned merchants and
and business men of Sandon desire to
point out to you, sir, and the council of
Sandon the great necessity of a sidewalk on Reco street from tbe Sandon
hotel to the K. & S. station -, also a
sidewalk from Mr. Pitts store running
at right angles to Reeo street to Mr.
Atherton's store.
And as we are given to understand
that improvement paid for out of the
relief fudd must be sanctioned by the
council : We petition the council to
suggest the necessity and advisability
ofthe relief committee building the
same at once, as without a sidewalk
Reco street would be impracticable
this winter, and would leave the incline
from Reco street up the bill useless,
which was built at the cost of several
hundred dollars, and as Reco street
would be impassible, it would necessitate great inconvenience for all going
and coming from lower end of town by
making it necessary to go off Reco to
Main, then from Main to  Reco again.
We further desire to state that not
one dollar has been expended on Reco
street to imprnve same at the upper
end whilst many hundreds from the
relief fund has been used to improve
Main street.
Time to Turn on the Light.
The time has about arrived for the
city council to devise ways and means
of lighting the city of Sandon. For
over a year now the city has been in
darkness, and citizens have stumbled
along in the gloaming with the poor
consolation that they were taxed to the
limit alreadv and the council could not
find the wherewithall to meet the demands of the light company for a street
light service. Since the fire the situation has been worse than before. The
city exchequer, notwithstanding the
large collections, has been perpetually
defunct, and the wary warfarer who
carried a lantern was the only one safe
from collision, pitfalls and profanity
along the maze of sidewalkless streets,
'rocky alleys and flume-side  gangways.
ness to furnish gratutious glim, the
nocturnal pedestrian would require an
argus-eyed pilot to guide him thru a
���streak of darkness thick enuf to be
blocked out with a meat axe. And in
that section of the city which in some
circles is characterized as "below the
deadline," in others as African Avenue,
and in still others is not mentioned at
all, things are said to he quite dark,
and rumor has it that the red lights
which denote the homodomscile of dealers in mercenary affection only serve to
accentuate the intensity of the darkness.
Aside from the fact that the city
treasury has been chronically on the
bum, ��the council has had a personal
quarrel of long standing with the president of the light company which started
with the eight-hour question over a
year ago, and has had considerable to
do with .keeping the city dark ever
since. But the cost of the light has
been the real rag of contention, and the
council has always held, that the light
company wanted more for the- light
than it was worth, whereas the company contends that it cannot profitably
supply the service at any reduction on
the $100 a month charged for eight arc
lamps.
That puts the council in this position
that it must either pay the $100 a
month, do its own lighting, or do without street lights as it has done for the
last year or more. The alternative of
doing without light is by no means-
satisfactory to the taxpayers, which reduces it to this that the city must either
undertake to do its own righting or pan
the light company's price. The purchase of the light plant by the city is
tbe rational solution, but the members
of the city council do not believe tha
the corporation is in a position to take
such a course. Until this can be done
the city council should make the best
deal possible with the light company
and proceed to secure a street light
service without delay.
COAL STRIKE ENDED.
Operators Grant   All  Demands of
the Mine Workers.
Philadelphia, Pa., October 17.���The
result of the conference of the coal
operators here today was an agreement
to grant practically all the demands of
the strikers. It is believed the strike
will end immediately.

Lord Salisbury recently characterized Hiram Maxim, the gunmaker, as
"the man who has prevented more
men from dying of old age than any-
other person that ever lived."

The Heathen Chinee in Sandon.
The slant-eyed heathen from the land
ol hop fiends and dead missionaries has
ai last fastened himself on Sandon.
Jim Kee, an Oriental from Whitewater,
has purchased a patch of ground al
ihe lower end of ihe K. & S. addition
and together with several other c hma-
men is proceeding to start h market
garden.
These are the firs! Chinamen to permanently settle in Sandon, bul they
will no doubt be followed bj many
others in the near future and a regular
Chinatown, with its opium joints, fan
t.m layouts, bad smells and all the
other disgusting appurtenances ^ will
soon become a pari of the Silver l it) ol

V. \. Kleinschmidl has ordered a
steam laundry plan! in Toronto which
he will install in the Sandon Laundry-
The plain will be modern and complete
and will permit Mr, Kleinschmidt to

business which is coming his way.

SANDON, B. C.,  OCTOBER 20,  igoo.
In dealing with the railroad policy of the government,
liberal campaigners and newspapers east and west are
making the brazen statement that the Laurier government
has put an end to the insane practise of subsidizing railroads with land grants. This is the monumental lie of
the campaign. The Laurier government did not put a stop
to the alienation of public lands. It did the reverse; and
its actions have been even worse than the conservatives in
the particular that the steals under the liberal regime were
made in the face of anti-election promises to put a stop to
the land-granting swindle altogether.
As a proof that the Laurier government was in the
land-granting business up to the top notch, a very brief
review of the railway legislation of the past four years
furnishes extensive evidence. The first important railway
legislation to be brot before the Laurier government was
Mackenzie & Mann's Yukon scheme. The charter for this
road provided for a land grant of 25,000 acres per mile, a
total of 4,375,000 acres for the 175 miles of road which was
to have been built from Glenora to Teslin. This land
grant included all mineral rio*hts on the land granted. The
Yukon bill was defeated by the Conservative majority in
the senate, which lead Laurier to threaten old Mack
Bowell and his aggregation of fossils with annihilation.
The circumstances attendant upon the Crow's Nest
steal are too well known to require more than mere mention. The coal land grant was made by the rotten B. C.
government of'96, but had the Laurier government simply
waited for the charter to expire instead of giving a cash
subsidy of $3,600,000 to secure the building of the road, it
would thereby have retained these 260,000 acres of coal
land to the people of B. C. Or, had the dominion government built the Crow's Nest road as a public work it could
have secured the coal lands to the Dominion government.
Had Joe Martin been elected in British Columbia last June
this land would not have gone to JafTray & Cox without a
struggle. The keen anxiety of the Sifton liberals to defeat
Martin at that time was merely a counterpart to Sifton's
anxiety to see JafTray & Cox secure in the possession of
the coal lands.
The charter for the Southeastern railway, which was
granted by the conservative government, would have
expired in 1897 and the land grant thus have lapsed had
not the Laurier government extended the time in that
year. This charter is now being used in connection with
the Rainy River charter to give the C. P. R., in the name
of its allies, Mackenzie & Mann, an absolute monopoly of
the railroad business west of Lake Superior. The land
grant in the case of the Southeastern is 8000 acres per mile
for the 164 miles within Manitoba. The cash subsidy for
the Rainy River road, the Ontario section, is $ 16,400 per
mile. Together the subsidies would more than build the
road from Lake Superior to Winnipeg. In other words,
the Laurier government is practically building a line from
the great lakes to the Red River to turn it over to a monopoly. The owners are allowed to load this road with
debt to the extent of $45,000 per mile in stocks and bonds
on which there is   no   limit  to   the dividends and interest.
And  worst of all, the government   retains  absolutely no
control of freight rates.
The case of the Hudson Bay Railway is equally bad,
This charter for a road from Winnipeg to Hudson Bay-
was obtained from the Macdonald govern ment by Hugh
Sutherland, M. P. It was a pure fake from the turnloose
and had Hugh and his fellow conspiritors received their
needings they would have found a place in penitentiary
rather than in parliament. However, the original charter
was due to run out in 1899 and the land grant of 6400
acres per mile for the portion within the province oi
Manitoba and a cash subsidy of $12,800 per mile for the
section in the Northwest territories, would have lapsed had
not the Laurier government renewed the charter and permitted it to be turned over to Mackenzie & .Mann to be
used, for the subsidies that ^o with it, in connection with
the Dauphin line, then in course of construction. This
road, by the way, has secured in all something like $1 1,000
per mile and 6400 acres of land for 110 miles already built.
The Great Northwest Central charter, another con-
servative insanity, would have expired in 1899 had not the
Laurier government granted an extension of time. This
charter, which is for a line from Brandon to Prince Albert,
carries with it the usual land grant and cash subsidy, and
is in everv was as pernicious a chatter as others granted bv
* m- I O m
the conservatives and afterward renewed by the liberals.
These charters are only a few of the striking instances
that go to prove that the liberalsjnade false promises when
they said they would put an end to the practise of granting
land to railroad corporations, and that they are still making
false statements when they say thai they have done
what they promised to do.
Thk unexpected strength developed by Candidate
Foley is a painful surprise to the liberal and conservative
leaders, and it is with feelings of dismay that they face the
undeniable fact that the Independent candidate will have a
heavy majority in East and West Kootenav and in the
Boundary country. The question which now confronts
Galliher and MacNeill is whether they can poll a sufficient
plurality in the agricultural districts to offset the majority
Foley will have in the mining camps. The chances are
largely against them.
On thk 7th of November the people of Canada will be
asked to choose between a government which has done
nothing in the way of effective reform and an opposition
which will promise nothing. Party prejudice and the
blindness of electors is responsible for the servility of the
government and the weakness ofthe opposition, and escape
trom the existing conditions cannot be found witli either
Tupper or Laurier. To vote for the liberal or conservative
candidate in this riding is to endorse the villanous railway
policy and all the corruption and jobbery that goes with
the party system. To vote for the independent candidate
is to record a protest against the whole thing.
Thk date of election in Yale-Cariboo-Kootenav is
left to the discretion of the returning officer, and polling-
day in this constituency will probably be about two weeks
later than the 7th of November. Tlie explanation offered
is that on account of the size of the constituency the returning officer could not possibly distribute his ballot boxes and
appoint deputies in the week intervening between nomination and election davs.
The voters' lists in use at the time of the last provincial election will be used in this constituency for the
dominion election. Persons whose names were not on tbe
list made up on May 7th last will not be entitled to vote.

Tico Great Chances.
(Toronto Tele-tram.)
A conservative government in a time
of national doubt and darkness missed
the chance to press on with the work of
building the C. P. R. as a government
railway.
A government railway in the room
and stead of the C. 1*. R- would have
meant low freight rates and an abundance of free land to all comers.
These blessings would have put a
population of 1,000,000 between Lake
Superior and the Pacific, and Sir John
A. Macdonald is to blame for not being
wiser than the folly, or braver than the
fears, of his country.
Next to the opportunity which Sir
John A. Macdonald missed, must rank
the two opportunities which Sir Wilfred
Laurier perverted to the profit of his
friends of the Crow's Nest Pass brigade,
and their allies in the Mackenzie-Mann
C. P. R. crowd.
Public money and public land will
more than pay for the railways thru the
Crow's Nest Pass and for the railway
now being built from Winnipeg to Lake
Superior. If these two lines had been
built by the government which paid for
them, and had been owned and operated
as a check on the C. P. R., the whole
transportation problem would have
settled for the benefit of the west and
east alike.
Mark Twain as a Campaigner.
Only once did Mark Twain appear in
public as a political speaker. As a
conscientious republican in his political
preferences, Mr. Clemens took an
active interest in the presidential campaign of 1890. While visiting in Elmira,
New Vork, in the fall of that year, he
made a short speech one Saturday
night, introducing to a republican
meeting General Hawley sif Connecticut, in the course of his remarks Mr.
Clemens said :
"General Hawley is a member of my
church at Hartford, and the author of
'Beautiful Snow.' Maybe he will deny
that. But I am here to give him a
character from his last place. As a
pute citizen 1 respect him ; as a personal friend I have the warmest regard
for him ; as a neighbor whose vegetable
garden adjoins mine, why���why, 1
watch him. As the author of 'Beautiful Snow' he has added a new page to
winter. He is a square, true man, in
honest politics, and 1 must say that he
occupies a mighty lonesome position.
So broad, so bountiful in his character
that he never turned a tramp empty-
handed from his door, but always gave
him a letter of introduction to me.
Pure, honest, incorruptible, that is Joe
Hawley. Such a man in politics is like
a bottle of perfume in a glue factory���it
may moderate the stench, but it doesn't
destroy it. I haven't said any more of
him than I would of myself. Ladies
and gentlemen, this is General Haw-
lev."

The Socialistic Solution.
The public pays the miners of Pennsylvania. No public, no mining. The
public are not kicking against the demand for increase of wages. They
can afford to pay three times the wages.
But it is ihe profit the millionaires add
to the cost of mining coal that is causing all the trouble. Do away with the
profit by having the public mine and
sell the coal at the cost of the labor to
mine and transport it, and there will be
no trouble in the mines. There is no
other remedy.���Appeal to Reason.
