Independent Political Action voill be
Taken by Labor Unionists
Moccment Started at Rossland.
Other Places Coming into Line
Convention to be Held of Labor
Unionists, Socialists and
��� People ot lndepen'
dent Views.
The first act in tbe movement which
will usher a labor candidate from Yale-
Cariboo-Kootenay into tbe dominion
parliament, was brot otT in Rossland
on Monday evening last, when at a
mass meeting of labor unionists it was
unanimously decided that tbe best interests of the country al large would be
served by cutting loose from tbe old
parties altogether and placing in the
field an independent candidate who
would go lo Ottawa to look after the
people's interests, and wbo could be depended on to place those interests ahead
e\f the interests of party.
Tne Rossland meeting was one of
the largest ever held in that city and
was thoroly representative. In opening it, A. C. Thompson, of the Industrial World, moved that, "This
mass meeting sif unionists of Rossland
declares in favor of independent
political action o\\ the part of labor and
labor sympathisers of Vale-Cariboo."
The motion was promptly seconded
and was carried without a dissenting
In tbe two hours which followed
many* speakers were beard, and all
were of the opinion that the time for
independent political action has arrived.
The secretary of the Trades and Labor
council was instructed to notify all
trades councils and labor unions in tbe
constituency of the action taken by tbe
Rossland body, and to impress on them
the vital importance of taking independent political action. A committee of
organization was appointed with instructions to call a meeting this (Sat-
urday) evening, at which all Rossland-
ers who are dissatisfied with the old
parties are invited to be present.
The Rossland mass meeting also decided to request the district association
W. F. of M. to at once issue a call for a
convention of accredited representatives
of labor organizations, independent political clubs and socialistic bodies, to
place in nomination a candidate tocontest
Yale-Cariboo in the interests of the
Independent Labor party.
The dale and place of the convention has not yet been set, but Nelson,
Oct. 6tb, has been mentioned as probable.
Among other unions, Sandon, New
Denver, Silverton, Kaslo and Slocan
have declared emphatically for independent political action. In Nelson
the matter is to come up at the Trades
and Labor meeting on Tuesday evening. Ymir has not yet taken action
and Fernie, Moyie, Greenwood, Grand
Forks and Phoenix are still to hear
from. On the main line the matter of
organization will be left largely in the
hands of the railroad unions, which
have excellent opportunities to get in
touch with the public in that part of
the constituency.
The program which was mapped out
al the Rossland meeting was to form
independent political clubs thruout the
Constituency in which all who do not
place full confidence in the old parties
will be asked to become interested.
While tbe movement will be fathered
by labor organizations, every effort will
be made to make it thoroly representative. Unlike the old parties, which
restrict representation at conventions to
members of their own associations, the
labor party will make it a point to sec
I that everyone wbo cares to become interested shall have a voice.
That the appearance of a labor party
in she contest is heartily feared by both
the old parlies is evidenced by tbe
strenuous opposition to the movement
already manifested by newspapers and
politicians both liberal and conservative.
No better guarantee of the ultimate
success of tbe independent labor movement -could he obtained.
The Gobernment Grant.
Replying to tbe request of tbe city
council that the $5000 granted by tbe
government to tbe city of Sandon be
placed to the city's credit, the provincial secretary writes under date of 17th
inst., informing tbe council that the
Chief Commissioner of Lands and
Works will be in Sandon within the
next few days to make arrangements
regarding the expenditure of the same.
In making the grant, the provincial
government made the stipulation that
the city hall which is to be built with
part of the money shall contain government offices. It is to make satis*
factory arrangements about these
offices that the commissioner will pay
the citv a visit.
The  "Delinquent   Co-Otcner" Late.
The first "Delinquent Co-Owner"
notice to be published in the Slocan
division appeared in the Silvertonian
last week. According to the law the
notice must be published for 90 days in
a paper printed in the district in which
the claim is located.
This is tbe best law that was placed
on the statutes during the recent session. It permits the owner of an interest in a mineral claim to force his
partners to do their share of tbe work
or relinquish owmership. It will be a
welcome enactment to many long-
suffering Slocan co-owners who have
for years been compelled to do assessment work for others who took advantage of the law as  it  stood  before.
We advise all such to step into this
off\ee at an early date and commence
the advertising which will place them
in possession of the money which is due
them for the work done or force their
delinquent partners to retire.
A Business Change.
There was a change of bands at the
Filbert restaurant this week by which
K. P. Burns dis| uses of the restaurant
business to Hogan & Reese. Both the
new owners are well known to the
Sandon public. Mr. Reese was chef at
the Reco and Balmoral hotels last summer and Mr. Hogan was for some time
culinary artist in tbe Filbert. Under
their management the Filbert restaurant will no doubt continue in popularity. THE PAYSTHEAK, SANDON, B. C, SEPTEMBER 22, 1900.

Charles M. Dobson, in the Cosmopolitan Magazine, tells of the various tricks
employed in '���salting" a mine.
"I was examining, a 'proposition' in
Shasta County, California," he says, "on
the boundary line of Trinity County
The vein was of great size and was
manifestly of low grade. 1 carried a
map of the mine, and every ten feet I
had the miners take out about 160
pounds of ore, which was thrown on an
iron plate, 4x"> feet, previously swept
and carefully cleaned The ore was
piled up into a cone and quartered The
diagonal quarters were taken, and these
in turn coned and diagonal quarters
taken, until I had about a pound of ore
thoroughly representative of each ten
feet of the mine. Each sample was put
into a $50 silver sack ot stout canvas
and sealed with my private seal. The
sack was numbered and a corresponding
mark made on tbe map so that I should
know just how the vein ran. As I took
some 200samples, it soon became im-'
possible to 'pack' these along the levels,
down the shafts and up the upraises
To watch them would have required a
detective to each sack.
'���I went on to calculate the amount
in   cubic  feet  of ore exposed in the
shafts, upraises and levels of the mine.
To determine the tonnage of ore, it is
necessary to remember that about 15
cubic feet of quartz make a ton.   I had
the samples brought out by the miners,
boxed   up  and   sent  for assay to an
eminent firm in Chicago.   I went to
Chicago to learn what the assay showed
as to the amount of gold and silver in
the samples; the chemist said that the
ore was of extreme richness.   Gold had
been recovered indicating between $800
and -$400 to the short ton of ore.
" 'That can't be,' I declared.
" 'It looks suspicious,' he admitted.
'It certainly is not in tbe ore if appearances go for anything.'   They do go for
a great deal, for a competent man can
often guess within $5 or $6 of the ton
value of ore by merely making a rough
pan test.
Were the seals intact?' I asked.
Oh, yes,' he replied; 'the sacks had
not been tampered with.'
" 'You've been handling some rich
ore,' 1 tolil him, 'and probably have
yourself 'salted' accidentally with some
of the rich particles.'
"No, he replied; he had been most
careful. So samples of th*�� pulp he had
made were sent to New York for check
assays. In this pulp the ore is reduced
to such fineness that it will all pass
through a mesh with 6,400 perforations
to the square inch, a little coarser than
ordinary flour. The reports from New
York verified the Chicago assays to the
third figure in decimals. Crushing the
ore in an iron mortar and panning the
result showed that the assays coul 1 not
be right. Yet how had the samples
been 'salted?'
"At last an idea occurred to me. Had
the sacks been preserved? Yes. We
washed them in a solution of cyanide of
potassium We drew off the liquid a
few days after that, and our tests for
the determination of gold showed that
those sacks were worth 172,000 per ton
of sacks Afterward it was confessed
that while I was figuring on tlie ore in
sijrht, a man with a hypodermic syringe
full of a solution of chloride ol ��_rol*l had
thrust the needle through the canva->
and injected the fluid on the samples of
ore. It had dried on the cloth, and
thus gave proof of the fraud."
WiUoii Crock Property.
Herbert Thomllnson is showing some
very tine samples of ore from the Stanley, his property located on Wilson
creek, about one milo and a half from
the lake, upon which he has done upwards of 1500 worth of work He has
exposed two parrallel ledges running
south-east and north-west, and in width
from three to five feet Both have well
defined walls, aud lie about 75 feet of
each other The ore is running with
quartz, and carries "old and silver,
with a small percentage of lead.

their inhabitants are sif a restless, migratory spirit, and occasionally we have
the proof of this brot forcibly to mind.
For instance, a photograph of Reco
avenue, taken in August, '07, was
handed in to this office this week.
Among the faces are manv who are -still
citizens of Sandon, but the great majority of those represented have passed on
to other scenes. Bartlett Hros. pack
train is conspicuous in the photo, and
of the three Bartlett boys in charge
IWO are now in Dawson and a third in
Tanana, Alaska. Of the others, Wm.
Sudrow is in California, George Macdonald is in South Africa, Harry Karns
is in Skagway, Biggerstaff Wilson is
in San Francirco, Thomas Brown is in
Scotland, C. K. Hammond, Billy
Donahue and Jack O'Donnell are in
Nome and Tom Callin is in parts unknown, while there are many others in
the group who   have   moved  to distant
camps.   All of which proves that mining camp people are at least travellers.
The Assessment.
Hie municipal assessment rolls have
been nearly completed by the city
clerk. The" total assessment, not including improvements in the burnt dis-
tr'ct, amounts to $230,000, as against
$362,000 on the old roll, which, of
course, included everything.
���lis not the intention of the city
council to levy taxes on the improvements in the burnt district, but on land
values the payment of all delinquent
taxes will be forced as soon as the
necessary legal procedure can be complied with.

Courts of Revision, for the purpose of bringing the
voters' list up to date will be held in all parts or British
Columbia, on the 5th of November. Should the federal
elections be held at a later date many who are not now on
the lists will have an opportunity to cast a vote. There
are many in this district who are eligible but have not yet
registered. All such should have their names placed on the
lists without delay. Registration blanks can be procured
by  applying at this office.
Hugh John Macdonald is hippodroming the east tell-
inof the tenderfeet that he is his father's son. If Huyfh
John would build a government railway or confine his wind
jamming to an analysis of Sifton's depredations he would
be much more acceptable as a candidate.
Down in the Wyoming valley in Pennsylvania, where
men work for 90 cents a day, the'anthracite mine workers
have gone on strike. It promises to be an interesting
struggle as it is representative of the greatest aggregation
of capital on one hand and the strongest organization of
labor on the other that has yet clashed in the United States.
From the workers point of view, the commencement of the
struggle was inauspicious as hardly ten per cent, of the
men went out, but should the one hundred and fifty thousand men who find employment in and about the Lehigh
mines determine to stand out for principles involved, the
eastern and nothern states will face a coal famine that will
disorganize industry in every branch and cause incalculable
suffering. As an object lesson the coal miners' strike has
only to ^assume large proportions to be convincing. There
are few thinking men of the present day who pretend to
defend a system' by which a few capitalists or an organization of laborers can intrude their troubles on the world at
laro-e and cause loss, suffering and disaster to thousands
who are in no way identified with the contention in point.
Just how to avert'these social and industrial disturbances is
the question which with every succeeding year becomes
more urgent and yet more difficult of solution. VvTiat the
end of it-will be the bravest shudder to guess.
To one unacquainted with the anomalies and contradictions of United States politics, many strange and ridiculous situations present themselves. For instance, we see
William Jennings Bryan, the anti-imperialist, touring the
country under a banner which says that governments derive
their just powers from the consent of the people governed,
or words to that effect, and at the same time Bryan's most
ardent supporters are to be found among the Southern democrats who are responsible for the disfranchisement of the
greater part of the negro population of many of the Southern states. Then again, Bryan has made many friends and
much political capital out of his expressions of sympathy
for Paul Kruger and his pseudo republic, seemingly overlooking the fact that Kruger met his fate on account of his
obstinate refusal to allow the people- -Anglo Saxons in this
case the ritrht of power to govern themselves.    And as an
example of what a United States president should do and
what his policy should be Bryan refers daily to Abraham
Lincoln, a republican whose administration saw a million
men under arms, who by force compelled the south remain
in the Union; a man, in fact, who was the only real war
president United States has ever had.
McKinley is equally inconsistent. He declares friendship for Britain and enforces a 60 per cent tariffagainst her.
He pledges himself to destroy the trusts but accepts votes,
money and patronage of the trust magnates. Notwithstanding that for two years he held absolute control of tho
house and senate, and might have accomplished any public
work he chose to mention, McKinley now invites the people to become enthusiastic over the Nicaragua canal policy
ot the republican party and to support him for the part he
took in a work which has not yet been started, and never
will by a government as much in the hands of the railroad
interests as McKinley's.
There are a thousand and one other points in which
Bryan and McKinley are as inconsistent as the wind, and
the bronze goddess of liberty must smile as she listens to
the rival politicians hawking the declaration of independence
about the country as evidence that life liberty and the pursuit of happiness can emanate only from a government such
as thev would form were the power placed in their hands.
Thk Toronto Globe is preparing a nice soft spot for Clifford Sifton to drop on. The Toronto Globe now says that
Hugh John Macdonald is not doing a brave act to quit a
sure thing in provincial politics for a chance to beat Sifton
in Dominion politics, as Brandon is a conservative constituency anyway.
When Clifford Sifton finds his place in the laurel-
wreathed grave that the Globe is preparing for him, it will
not be because the people oi Brandon wanted to elect
Hugh John, but because they wanted to annihilate the
principles, or lack of principles, for which Sifton stands.
Sifton is responsible for more broken pledges, for more
bribery, corruption and rotteness in administration and lor
more debauchery in the civil service than any other man
who has yet found a place in current Canadian history.
Hugh John may not have great or overshadowing ability,
he mav not have to any great extent the natural application
and force of character necessav to success in public life, and
he may not be able to escape the handicap oi being his
father's son, but the most studied prostitution of his opportunities could not place him on a level with Sifton, whom
the people of Brandon will turn down no matter who they
have to elect in doing so.
With this issue Thk Paystreak completes the fourth
year of its usefulness. Its existence commenced almost w ith
the camp's history, and it has shared in the prosperity and
vicissitudes which have fallen to the lot of the Silver City ot
the Slocan. It has never aspired to become national in its
importance, but there is no trace of egotism in the statement that it wields influence in its own community. It has
never so far departed from the dignity of independence as
to become the tool of factional interests or the medium oi
questionable exploitations, but has alwavs endeavored to
follow the well-defined trail of honesty which leads eventually to the highway of success. With ihe measure ol
success attained Thk Paystreak has no quarrel. We only
ask that in the future as in the past we receive commendation for the right and condemnation for the wrong wherever
it may be found in these columns. With this assurance vve

The President of the Mine Workers
of America and his Career.
John Mitchell, the youthful president
of the United Mine-Workers ot America
is a native of Illinois, and was horn in
Braid wood on Feh. 4, 1869. He does
not look 31 years old. He is smoothfaced, pleasing in his manner, of small
stature, Weighing not more than 150
pounds, and dresses neatly, hut not
expensively, and always wears a soft
slouch hat.
Mr. Mitchell's father and mother arc
hoth dead. His mother died when he
was 2 years old. His father's death
occurred four years later, and from the
age ol* six until he was ten years old he
lived with a step mother and got as
much schooling as he could. He became a farm laborer when 10 years old,
and at 13 went into the coal mines.
When ib years old, Mitchell joined
the Knights of Labor at Barnsville, 111.
and a few weeks later visited Colorado,
New Mexico and other States in the
in the West and Southwest, making
his living by mining coal. He returned
to Illinois in the spring of 1891, and
made his home in Spring Valley, a
mining town.
When 22 years old, Mitchell married
Katherine O'Rourke. They have four
children���one boy and three girls. The
children and Mrs. Mitchell make their
home in Spring Valley.
Mitchell was made secretary-treasurer
of the North Illinois sub-district in 1895
and the next year he was sent to
Springfield, and obtained the enactment by the legislature of the Gross
Weight law He also carried thru the
Anti-Trust law, and several other
measures of great importance to the
Illinois miners. Mitchell was made a
member of the Illinois State Executive
board of the United Mine-Workers in
1897, and the same year became an
organizer for the national organization.
He was made vice-president of the
United Mine-Workers in 1898, and the
following September he was appointed
president, succeeding M. D. Ratchford,
who had resigned to accept an appointment on the National Industrial Commission.
Mitchell was elected fourth vice-
president of the American Federation
of Labor in December 1897, and still
holds this office as well as being a
member of the Executive Council of
the Federation. He was elected
president of the United Mine-Workers
in January, 1899, and re-elected by
acclamation last January, there being
no candidate against him.
Under Mitchell's management the
order has grown from 63,000 to 140,000
members. He has had no failure, and
enjoys the supreme confidence of the
National Board members, and the rank
and file of the organization.
Outside of his career as a miner Mr.
Mitchell has achieved success. From
1885 to 1898 when he was compelled
to go to Indianapolis, he was president
of the Athletic Association of Spring
Valley, president of an independent
political club, and a member and officer
of various social, literary and educational clubs. He was president of the
Spring Valley Board of Education before he could vote. He is a Catholic,
and an A. P. A. fight against him defeated him for re-election to the Board
of Education.
Mr. Mitchell is a democrat. He is a
good orator with a clear voice. As a
presiding officer he is fair As the
head of the United Mine Workers he is
dignified when he needs lo he, but to
those who know him he is plain "Jack"
Mitchell. More often he is called
Even-tempered, yet quick to resent a
false accusation, his heart is in the
cause he leads. His friends declare he
cannot be tempted into political bypaths. He can tell a good story, is
modest, and is what the world would
call "a good fellow."
Now that the anthracite mine workers strike has been ordered, Mitchell
will become an interesting person, for
he has announced that he will go to
Hazelton, Pa., and take personal
charge. "I w;int to assume whatever
responsibility there may be attached to
the strike," he said, "and if it fails let
the blame fall on mv shoulders."

is used almost entirely for electrical
purposes.   The fine mica is used for
various purposes���principally for lubricators and  for  packing  in electrical
works.   The supply of mica in Custer
County is practically unlimited.   The
reason that the mines have not been
worked before is that the mica industry
is in the hands of a trust.   The Chicago

Owing to the present and probable
future increasing demand for mica, particularly in electrical machinery, there
is unusual activity  in mica  mining.
The old mica mines west and south of
Tres f iedras, New Mexico, have been
purchased and are being operated by a
Colorado companv.   In Custer County,
South Dakota, according to the Black
Hills Mining Review, about thirty old
mica mines which have been lying idle
for years  are being opened.   One of
these, the McMakin, has to its credit a
production of $1,000,000 worth of mica.
The  Lost Bonanza is another which
produced 12,000 pounds of mica in one
