Local political enthusiasm is warming up a little, but neither the liberal
nor the conservative party has any
active organization, and the work is rill
being done by the independents. It is
generally conceeded that Foley will
have a walk-over in Sandon, and reports from Whitewater and Slocan lake
points indicate that he will get almost
the total vote in those places.
Arthur Cawley has bee;n heard from.
He is handling a gang of tenderfeet on
the construction of a big copper mill at
Bruce Mines, Ont. Arthur says that
the climate is a trifle frosty, the cuisine
is low grade and the eastern mechanics
are below par, but there are many
vivacious, corn-fed, agricultural damsels who make life in the wilderness of
New Ontario worth living. His many
bachelor friends in this vicinity entertain grave fears for Arthur's safety.
J. R. Crudge, who has been in
charge of the C. P. R. depot in Sandon
since the fire, will leave in a few days
for Nelson, where he will spend a few
weeks previous to leaving on a tour of
Eastern Canada. Mr. Crudge is an
old-time railroader, and was 14 years
with the Grand Trunk hefore coming
to B. C. On returning from the east
he will take his old place in the general
offices of the C. P. R. at Nelson. F. W.

An appeal to the privy council was immediately taken by the Copeland interests, and   the   case   will   probably be
fought out in England.    In the meantime   the   Cody   and  Joker   Fraction
Mining   Company,   as   the successful
litigants  style  themselves,   secured an
injunction   to   prohibit   the    Copeland
parties from trespassing and were about
to   commence   work  on   the   claims.
On Thursday Wm. Lewis and a force
of men started   out   for   the   property
with a pack train loaded with Supplies,
but arriving on   the Chicago   ground
found that the trail had been  blocked
and that access   to   the   property was
impossible.    The Chicago adjoins the
Cody and   belongs   to   Fry   Brothers,
who were co-owners with Copeland in
the Cody   ground.    WTm.   Lewis   tyas
applied to the gold commissioner to restrain Fry Brothers from felling timber
across the trail  or interfering in any
way with free access to the property.
The Cody and Joker Fraction are
valuable properties and it is claimed
that with the development already done
a large amount of ore is in sight. The
lawsuit in connection has been a very
costly one and involves some fine points
in the mineral law. McQuillam &Co.,
lawyers of Victoria, and Chas. Hibbert
Tupper are supposed to be the principal
owners in the Cody and Joker Fraction
Mining Company.
More Trouble at the Codi* and Joker
A few days ago the decision of the
supreme court at Ottawa on the famous
Codv and Joker Fraction  was given to
The Banner Mine*of the Slocan.
Kverthing is now in readiness at the
Minnesota   Silver   Company's  mill for
handling  the   output   of   the Ivanhoe
mine.    The tramway   is   in operation
and works   as smoothly   as   could   be
desired.    The   mill  has  been running
for the past few days   on   tests   which
have  proved   everything    satisfactory,
and the ore will be turned in today or
tomorrow. When everything is running the mill will handle 150 tons a
day. Work on the switch is progressing slowly, but should be completed
within two weeks, when C. P. R. cars
will be loaded right out of the ore.bins.
LTp at the mine new buildings are
being constructed to replace those burned six weeks ago. There will be a
bunk house 100 feet long with accomodation for 125 men. The dining room
and cook house, which will occupy
another large building, will be one of
the finest mine camp hotels in the Slocan, and the office building and foremen's quarters will he complete in every
particular. When these improvements
are completed a fu',1 force will be put
on at the mine.
Within the next o days the Minnesota Silver Compa y will be crowding
the record of the St Eugene and North
Star in East Kootenay or any of the
banner shippers of the Rossland camp
in value of output.
Ore shipments over the K. & S. this
week were : Payne 249 tons, Last
Chance 99, Slocan Star 40, American
Boy 19. The Payne shipped 160 tons
over the C. P. R. during the week
McGuigan shipments for the month
of October were: Rambler-Cariboo 170

The Truckee River Electric Power
Companv has announced that the plant
is completed and the wires for transmission of power to the mines on the
Comstock Lode have been connected at
both ends.
Whatever may be said concerning
the future of the mines of the great
lode, its past is a wonderful his'ory.
The following notes are collated from
the memoirs of the late Melville At-
wood in the writer's possession:
In 1857 ii,. Allen Grosh and Hosea B
Grosh, sons of   Rev. A. B   Grosh,  a
Unitarian clergyman of Philadelphia
" -a I. ���_*<	
were working- on the Comstock. from
the testimony of many old miners who
knew them, they were men of considerable scientific attainment**, being chemists*, assayers and metallurgists. They
"rent over into the mining region now
Jnown as the Comstock lode from Mud
Springs, El Dorado County, Cal , in that
year and continued to" prospect for
nearly a year. They came across a
young man named McLoud and took
him along with them. He was a Cana
dian, about 20 years of age, and had
crossed the plains with some Mormon
The Mormons, who were the early
settlers of Nevada, wanted McLoud to
remain with them, but he was unable
to stomach their religion, and so cast
his fortunes with the miners
The Grosh brothers occupied the
cabin along with young McLoud, and
COttistdek, after whom the ledge was
mimed, was a frequent visitor to their
little home
By this time there was considerable
mining done about Mount Davidson,
but it was all gold. The black sul
phurets, so rich in silver,were regarded
as of no value and thrown away. In
fact, the presence of these sul phurets
was regarded everywhere with disfavor
bv the miners.
There ia no authentic record of any
assay made by the Grosh brothers, but
they had the necessary appliances for
the' work, and must have made the
assay, for in the fall of 1857 they told
Comstock that they knew of rich silver
mines in the vicinity, and were going
back to Philadelphia to secure capital
to work thum.
They asked Comstock to remain at
their cabin during the winter with McLoud, who had been engaged bv them
to cut wood, etc , until they returned.
At that time there was considerable
stunted cedar in the vicinity, and this,
with the sagebrush, was used for fuel.
It would be of great interest for the J
world to know the history of the first
silver assay made by the Grosh brothers.
What it amounted to they kept to themselves. The testimony of McLoud is
interesting on this point.
After he reached Last Chance, with
his feet frozen from exposure, he stated
to Bill Lee, the storekeeper there, that
he had come over the mountains with
one of the Grosh brothers and that they
had endured horrible sufferings on the
McLoud stated to Lee that he saw
the Groshes "pour some of the silver
ore in a glass after pounding it in a pot
and wetting it, and that after that they
got very much excited."
The assay thus described by McLoud
is unquestionably the first assay ever
made of the silver deposits of the Comstock.
What a subject this scene would have
made Tor a painter's brush���the interior
of a miner's cabin at night, the .faces of
the two fortune-seekers lit by the ruddy
glow of the cupel furnace as they eagerly
held up the ' glass where the silver
bottom had dissolved in the acid sold-
On the result of that assay the future
of thousands hung Out of that'assay
sprang the millionaires of the Coast,
blocks of the finest buildings which now
adorn ban Francisco, the great enter
prises  that   have  made  Nevada  and
California famous, and along v ith it a
landslide of misery and bankruptcy
that has carried thousands to the loot
oi the hill to be covered with the debris
of shamti and oblivion. Out cf the little
ylass came a giant more powerful and
relentless than the awful shape that
������prang from the pan in the Arabian
story, aud this giant still lives to make
and unmake the destinies of thousands
The men who made the assay are
both dead. The grave of one is iu
California and the other in Nevada, and
neither themselves nor their descendants ever realized a dollar from their
discovery which added to the world's
wealth over three hundred millions of
dollars and saved the American Union
in the civil war.
The Grosh brothers seemed to fully
realize the importance of the discovery
they had made, for they began to make
plaits for going back to Philadelphia to
interest capitalists there to invest in
their find.
They at once staked off several claims
but there being no mining district there
at the time, of course they could not
have recorded them. They told Com
stock, who combined with them, what
their intentions were, and where the
find was located.
While preparations were being made
for the departure of the Grosh brothers,
Hosea, while prospecting, ran a pick in
his foot, and the result Was lockjaw
from which he died on the 2nd of September. His grave was marked bv a
few boulders, but on June 27, 18 55,
Hon. Schuyler Colfax, who whs en route
for California overland, participated in
the erection of a marble' slab over the
grave. Ahout, 200 people took part in
the ceremony.
. Allen Grosh died the following winter
from exposure in a snow storm while in
company with McLoud, who was pros-'
trated and narrowly escaped death and
the records.in Grosh's possession were
lost, haying Ix-.en deposited bv the two
freezing men iu the hollow of a fallen
In the spring Comstock learned that
Allen Grosh was dead, and concluded
to take advantage of the knowledge
then acquired
The partner of Crush claimed afterward that Comstock ransacked the cabin
for papers and data, and was thus enabled to relocate the ledge. It is not
probable, however, that such was tbe
case, as the Grosh brothers did not trust
him with anything, nor was it likely
that they left anything in the cabin that
would benefit him. After they left he
probably went over the ground where
he had seen them prospecting and
located the likeliest pUces.
Melville Atwood made the first assay
of ore taken from the lode on July la,
1859, after Comstock had disposed of a
great deal of ground which he claimed,
at ridiculously low prices. Mr Atwood
found the ore'submitted to him to contain $875 in gold and $75 in silver to the
After the result of the assay was made
public there was a wild rush to the

Harris cs. Ourlin

The case of Harris vs. Curlin was
continued at (court yesterday. The
case is of considerable interest to every
citizen of Sandon and was warmly contested. Argument commenced shortly
,,11,., io o'clock and lasted until 5 p. m.
II n/ould appear from what was stated
that the legislation relating to Crown
���mints of mineral claims is anything
hut clear. Counsel for the plaintiff
intended that his Crown grant gave
him surface rights to the ground at
js,n_ in addition to minerals, the oppo-
jjte contention*, being thai mineral
ri^hi-s only were conveyed, the surface
rights being not included. The judge
allowed COUni*el tO put in charts of the
statutes from 1892 to date, showing
what amendments have been made in
llie legislation in dispute. This gave
counsel the advantage of considering
each other's arguments and respectively
answering deliberatively on paper at
anv time before December. The main
contention on behalf of the plaintiff was
:hat his Crown grant was, on the face
of it, a grant in fee sif the disputed lots
together with much Other land comprising the Harris addition to the town-
ate of Sandon, as well as all minerals,
precious or base, which might be found
on it, and that such a conveyance carried with it the surface rights. The
contention for the defendenl  was con-
iiiud lo the one issue as to whether the
surface tights were conveyed or not,
pointing out that the Mineral Act never
contemplated the creation sif townsites
under its provisions.
Thirtq Members for the West.
The next Dominion census will be
taken within a vear. A redistribution
ofthe number of seats alloted to each
province must follow. What population the west will be found to have it is
difficult to say. A not extravagant
estimate might place it at boo,000
300,000 for Manitoba, 175,000 for the
Territories and 135,000 for British
Columbia. On that basis there would
beat least thirty members sif the house
of commons elected west ot Rat Port-
Hge, or about half as many again as
Nova Scotia enough to make a difference of sixt) sin a division. We may
be sure thai anv political party will
want as manv of those thirty votes as il
can get and will do a good deal to get
them bv its policy during the next five
years. Thev will judge what the west
wants by the wav i: votes at the polls
��n tlu- 7th. If tlie west votes tor more
Siftonism, it will get what it votes for.
If the west votes strongly and decidedly
for a state ownership polk \ in connection with western railways, it will have
some chance of getting   Mich   a policy.

SANDON, B. C.,  NOVEMBER 3,  iqoo.
The Announcement made by Finance Minister
Fielding* that a branch of the Royal mint would be established in Canada in the immediate future is a matter of
much satisfaction to people of Western Canada. The
loss this country has suffered thru the lack of a mint has
been great. Vancouver and Victoria alone have lost
during* the last three years the profits of a trade amounting
in the aggregate to something close to a hundred million
dollars. Slocan, Trail Creek, Nelson, the Boundary, and
in fact all the camps in British Columbia have been heavy-
losers in the particular that the establishment of a Canadian
mint must eventuate in the establishment of Canadian
refineries in which gold and silver and their bye-products
would be treated on this side of the line instead of being
shipped to F2urope or United States. The loss in all cases,
while it has been reflected on the country's trade, has been
saddled on the mining industry, as the cost of shipping
the precious metals to a market must of necessity be deducted from the value thereof. The establishment of a
Canadian mint will virtually act as a bonus to producers of
precious metals to the extent of saving to them the cost of
transportation to a foreign country.
The establishment of a Canadian mint has been
strenuously opposed by the bankers, and their arguments
are not without foundation. The money men claim that a
mint will disturb the financial equilibrium which, they
say, is making Canada prosperous. They argue that gold
coinage is not necessary in internal trade, and that Canadian
gold coin would not be acceptable in United States or any
European country except at its gold -or remelt���value,
and that therefore the cost of minting would be a dead loss
to the country. In the case of shipping sovereigns, Canadian banks would lose the cost of shipment to London,
but this loss would be no greater than that of transporting
the bullion. It is also pointed out by the bankers that the
Melbourn mint, a branch of the Royal, cost ,-��20,000 last
year and returned a revenue of only .��8,000, the balance
being a loss to Australia.
From the bankers' point of view the argument against
a mint is sound.    Banks will   probably  lose money  by its
establishment���or rather, will   make less after  it has been
established���but the benefit to  the country at large will be
out of all proportion   to the  loss  sustained by the banks.
The bankers argue from  a wrong premises.    They take it
for granted that the prosperity of the  banks and the prosperity of the  country  are  identical  and inseparable���that
unless the banks are making  money the country cannot be
prosperous.    Such is not  the case, as the establishment of
a mint will in some degree prove.    Were the banking franchises in the hands of the people  and the banks run as the
postoffice is, for   the benefit  of   the  public, instead of as
dividend-producing   concernes,   the   country's   prosperity
would be greatly enhanced thereby.    The establishment of
a mint and the  consequent substitution of a national coin
for chartered  paper currency is  the first   step  toward the
nationalization  of the banks.    The  next step  will be the
withdrawal from the  chartered banks   of  the  privilege of
issuing paper and the substitution of national greenbacks.
In the election which is to take place in the United
States next Tuesday, Imperialism and Trusts are the paramount issues. On imperialism Bryan and the democratic
party seem to have struck the mark. On the trust question
they have missed it.
Bryan tells electors that trusts should be suppressed.
Follow this to its logical conclusion. We find that by
working backward thru the maze of trusts, combines, com'.
panies and partnerships, we arrive at the primitive system
of production under individual enterprise. Trusts are tho
twentieth century outgrowth of individualism. They follow
as naturally as day does night. To try to suppress them
would be as foolish as to legislate against high tide. Thev
prove that competition is not the life but the death of trade;
that perfection in production can be obtained only in monopoly. They demonstrate that the world's desire cheapness���cannot be reached thru chaotic, disorganized, wasteful individual effort.
Bryan and the democrats fail to forsee the future as
they have failed to read the past. The) do not recognize
that the logical outcome of the trusts will be found in a
grand national monopoly which will control all the means
of production. The election of Bryan might curtail the
power of the trusts by securing a reduction of the tariff
and the enforcement of more equitable transportation regulations, but this cannot avert the final outcome.
MacNeilL and Galliher have made several speeches
during the past few days, but have not yet defined their
position on the question of government ownership of railways. They are afraid to state where they stand. That's
cowardice. Chris Foley has made several speeches during
the past two weeks and has come out flatly for government
ownership even* time. That's the courage of honest convictions. Vote for MacNeill or Galliher and you vote
against government ownership. Vote for Chris Foley and
vou vote for it. *
Government ownership of railways is the paramount
issue in Western Canada today.    Don't  overlook it : don't
_/ *
try to dodge it ; don't be blinded to it by party prejudice.
Face it and vote intelligently. Government railways will
make Canada the most   prosperous country   under the sun.
A vote for Chris Foley is a vote for <_overnmenf rail-
ways, arbitration of industrial disputes, exclusion of Asiatic
immigrants, abolition of the senate and the establishment
of a national eight-hour day. A vote for MacNeill or
Galliher is a vote against Foley and his platform.

Laurier says the liberals will win. Tupper savs the
conservatives will win.    Shaughnessy  only smiles.
Galliher and   MacNeill are   before the   electors on an
appeal to prejudice.    Chris Foley has a platform.
Why do the liberals and  conservatives  say that there
is not room for a third candidate in the field ?
The Mining Review intends to stay on the fence until
its editor "has been seen."

Tho Halcyon Hot Spring!.
There are a variety of places full of
interest thruout Southern British Columbia. Each district has its special
attraction hut none of those places possess more attractive interest than the
Hot Springs at Halcyon. These springs
are situated on the eastern shore ot' the
Upper Arrow Lake, about eight miles
south from Arrowhead. They are ihus
on the main line of travel thru the great
Kootenav country, and are fast becoming one ofthe most popular features of
this line of travel, particularly lor the
tourist traveller. Here are three cauldrons of hoi, sulpherous water- about a
thousand yards apart from each other���
seething over in a contii uous How of
medic-ited w.iters, amply -mfficient to
cure nearly all the ills the flesh is heir
to. Their full medical potency was nol
thoroly understood for some time after
their discovery, and it is only recently
their threat virtues have heen ascertained. It was soon discovered tnat bath-
ing in its waters was a great alleviation
for all rheumatic and gouty pains, and
that drinking of its waters provided
relief in kidney and liver troubles, and
that those who were suffering from
dyspepsia were cured by partaking of
its waters. It is however only lately
(hat their great potency has heen ascertained in their eradicating from the
system the ill effects produced by metallic poisoning, contracted thru working
in the long tunnels and deep shafts sif
the precious metal mines. The reputation of the curative* powers of these
waters is becoming world-wide. Travellers from all parts of the world, touring the Kootenay, have visited these
springs, some for their curative effects
and others to enjoy the beautiful scenery which to them is the most picturesque in the whole of British Columbia,
combining the gracefullness ol the
Scottish Highlands, the boldness of
Switzerland and the massiveness of
Norway���a tine blending of the whole
three. Here the tired and jaded can
have complete rest and undergo recuperation from the health-giving fountains
either by bathing in or drinking of the
waters. The bathing houses for ladies
and gentlemen are the most complete
lhat modern convenience could afford.
Each is equipped with a splendid swimming pool, built of hewn stone after the
style of the baths of the ancient Romans. There is a first-class hotel and
numerous villas with attractions for
recreation .md amusement so as to
make a stay there .as pleasant as possible.
One great peculiarity sif these springs
is that they appear to possess a climate
peculiarly their own, and specially
adapted for a health resort. There is
little or no winter's snow or frost. The
temperature seldom descends below
zero, sun is never absent, and exercise
in the open air is always obtainable.
The climate here is so genial that the
place has been dubbed "the banana
patch." The Sanitarium has comfortable accomodation for upwards of
eighty guests, and its attractions in the
winter are as great as in summer.
Bottling works have been erected for
the purpose of carbonating the water so
as to place on the market a healthy
table water laden with medicinal poten-
tionalities, and The Halcyon Water has
already taken a place in public favor as
being one of the finest natural mineral
waters in the world.
This is Probably on the Square.
Detailed study ofthe different vowels
and consonants and the corresponding
currents and counter-currents of air has
induced  M. Galle to conclude that the
intra-buecal column of air is not inert,
and that the buccal cavity does not act
as a resonator, as it is usually said to
do, It is the air itself, by its alternate
condensations and dilations, which result from the action between the currents, and produce the sub- awels along
with the laryngeal sound.

They sat together by the sea,
