Last Chance Meeting.
'The annual meeting of the Last
Chance Mining Company was held at
the Company's offices on Friday, at
which the following officers were elected: President, Dr. Hendrvx; Vice-
President, B. Wilson; Secretary, D.
Heap; Superintendent, John O. Regan.
The board of directors consists of the
officers named.
Last Chance Ore House Burned.
About 4 o'clock yesterday morning
the ore house at the lower terminal of
the Last Chance tramway look lire and
burned to the ground, totally destroying the building, ore-crusher and al'
the lower end machinery, and putting
the ariel Uamway out of commission.
When interviewed yesterday morning Treasurer Stinson of the Last
Chance company stated that the cause
of the lire was a complete mystery.
There had been no lire in the building
for several months and they were al a
complete loss to explain tbe origination
of the blaze. Mr. Stinson also stated
lhat the loss to the company was unknown. B. C. Ribbet was wired for
at Nelson to commence reconstruction
of the tramway immediately. Folliott
<!*�����: McMillan have already commenced
the re-construction of the building.
Just at this time the lire was particularly unfortunate both for the company
and lor the city of Sandon. The com-*
pany had just completed their bunk
houses at the mine and were preparing
to increase their force to 150 men during the next few days. A big strike
was made in the No. 3 tunnel this week
and the condition of the mine could
hardly be more favorable than at the
present moment.
At last reports the management was
not certain whether they could keep
the present crew of 80 men at work.
There is considerable timber at the
mine but it is questionable whether this
will last until the tram is repaired.
The Relief Committee.
The sub committee of the relief committee appointed to see the Sunnyside
road thru took the work off the contractor's hands. E. A. Cameron had
the contract at Shoo. Extras were
charged for ihe   approaches amounting
to $75.
A complete new outfit amounting to
$1500 has been ordered from Toronto
for the tire brigade.
E. A- Brown has been commissioned
bv the committee to furnish figures and
specifications as to the cost of repairing
the Hume. He estimates that at an
expense of $2000 tbe Hume can be
thoroly repaired. Acting on bis advice, the committee has ordered the
necessary lumber and the repair of the
flume will bo commenced as early as
possible. Arthur Cawley will have
charge of the work.
The relief committee has a balance
on hand of $2000 which will be devoted
to relieving the few remaining cases of
distress and to the replacement of the
city's improvements destroyed by the
Sandon Will Haoe a Rink
Altho there is no suspicion of winter
in the gentle zephyrs thai toy with the
curlers' lilacs these salubrious days, a
movement is already under way lo
provide a curling and skating rink in
lime for next  winter.
Col. Bray ton, the energetic real
estate agent, has a group of six lots
adjoining the site of Ihe present curling
rink which he has offered to the club at
a very modest figure. The Colonel's
offer will be taken up, and it will then
be in order lo proceed with the formation of ;i joint slock company lo undertake the construction of a building
large enough to accomodate both the
curling club and the skating and
hockey-playing public. The scheme
as iit present outlined is to form a
company with a capital of $2000 or
$2500 in $10 shares and ask the public
to purchase stock. The rink can la-
made a dividend-paying concern from
Ihe tumloose. The curlers would have
plenty of room, the skaters would be
satisfied, and ;is for the youthful hopefuls who indulge in the swift and fan-
tasli<* game of hockey -oh mumma but

Atherton Co. Will Build on the Mete
The Wood's building, on the K. iS: S.
ground has been declared off, As a
consequence E. R. Atherton has commenced work on a new store building
on his present site, Corner of Slocan
Star street and the Flume street. The
new building will be 36 x (10 feet, one
story and will have accomodation for
the post office and telephone exchange.
The store will occupy 22 feet of the
frontage and the telephone office and
post office the remainder. The lire
proof warehouse, which now laces on
the street will be moved lo the back
end of the store. Work was commenced removing the building which
the Atherton Co. has been occupying
since the lire, and as soon as the site-
is cleared the new building will \fe
commenced. ._
The Minnesota Mill.
Machinery for the Minnesota mill
has commenced to arrive in Sandon.
The big rock crusher and ore pulverizer were received over the C. P. R.
last week and this week some of the
Wolfley tables came in over the K. & S.
Great progress is being made on the
construction of the mill. The frame
work is almost completed and the carpenters are at work on the siding.
The work of installing the machinery
will be commenced in a few days.

At achaml erof commeice meeting1
in New York lately, William Barclay
Parsons repeated an incident of his
recent experience in China, at which
his listeners laughed long. He thus
describes it:
"Sir Thomas Jackson spoke about
the need of teaching the Chinese to
build r. il roads. I found that they
need no teaching on this subject. A
magistrate who was detailed to go
everywhere with me, to see that I
had every opportunity to conduct my
business, was very anxious to know-
about railroads. He probably had
never seen one in his lite. One day
he asked me where the station would
be located in his capital town. I
looked at him awhile, anxious to
know if he understood what he wns
talking about. He would like very
much to know, I told him that little
matter would not be of the slightest
importance. But he said he had an
earnest desire to find that out, nnd he
should like to have the knowlrdsre
for himself alone. I told him I did
not know.
"He expressed deep sorrow, nnd
told me that it would help me also.
I enquired how. 'Why,' he said,
'I, like the other magistrates, can
fix the price, of land. 1 thought th it
all the business of the town would
center about your railroad station,
and th a property there would become
valuable. You nnd I can buy tho
land at our own price, and after having the station built in the center of
it we could sell it back to the people
we bought it from, charging our own

A Word to the Citij Council.
The citizens' committee appointed ti
I reorganize the lire department ha*
recommended the formation of three
brigades, each with headquarters in
different parts of the city, and, altho ii
is n0| specifically slated, it is understood that the business, men of the city
will be depended on for active service
1S firemen. As the report does not
,1;,ic otherwise, the inference is that no
provision is to be made to furnish sleep-
jno Hccomodations for firemen.
It will be well for the city council to
Cilrefull\ analyze these reconimenda-
jinns before adopting them. There are
,erious doubts as to whether three
hriiTiides would be more efficient than
0ne. The advantage urged is that
being placed in different parts of the
,ii\ one or the other would be nearer
to the fire. The old brigade could
make either Byers" stone or the Kootenai from Athertqn's within one minute
of starting, which means that the three-
hall system would have an advantage
efonh one minute in either end of the
lown. I>\ using the city team as a fire
team this advantage would disappear
on long runs. Th's is the li^ht in
which the three-hall proposition should
present itself lo the lily council.
The idea of a business-man fire brigade is also open to well-founded objection. The experience oi tho last
four years has not been such as to lead
anyone t < believe that the business
men ol Sandon are liUeU to turn out
regularlj to drill and practise. Even
at the reorganization meeting many of
ihe business men showed their disinter.
estedness hy failing to appear. Without systematic drill a fire brigade is not
worth the name.
The part of ihe committee's recommendation which advises that the
mayor be made chief is a fallac) on the
face of it. The fuel of a man being
elected mayor of Sandon is no guarantee thai he could handle n fire department.
What   the   citv COUlVcil   should   do is
i" furnish one lire hall with sleeping
iicci uunoJations tor eight or ten men
mid stabling lor the city team. They
should see that the affairs of the brigade
'ire in the hands ol" nun acquainted
with the work of lighting lire and capable ot" commanding men. Thc\
should open the membership list to
nnyone win*, cares to volunteer his services and they should see that the volunteers are properly trained. They
should make no distinction between
fool runners and business men so long
as both are willing io do their duty.
And the business men, property holders,
council and everyone else should
e an interest in tbe lire brigade,
otherwise there will- be no success in
the reorganization of the brigade.
\n exchange says: "Mineral specimen dealers thruout ihe country are
looking for fine specimens of roodochi-
rosile, rhodonite, stibnite in fine crystals, and pyromorphite. Specimens
arc in fair supply, but particularly
choice specimens are scarce."
If these searchers for long-named
specimens will call at this office, we
will gladly inform them where they

SANDON, B.C., JULY 21,  igoo.
In the matter of exclusion the Chinese are much
more thoro than the Canadians. We say that the Chinese
must go, and try to exclude them by means of a poll tax.
The Chinese say that the foreigners must go, and without
the formality of legislation proceed to put them not only
out of China but off the earth altogether. Barring the
possibility of a military stampede to Pekin, the Chinese
method of restricting foreign immigration should be
"CANADA should own the C. P. R." says the Lardeau
Eagle. It certainly should. Canada built the C. P. R.
The cost of construction was disbursed from the treasury
at Ottawa. Then in aberration she gave it away. Now
the C. P. R. owns Canada, and our national administration
emanates from the company's head offices at Montreal.
To metamorphose matters to such an extent that Canada
will again become the possessor of what she has foolishly
given away is the live question which confronts Canadian
statesmanship today. The Canadian Pacific has two
hundred and fifty millions of vested rights for which Canada
will have to pay. The Canadian Pacific also has a few
hundred millions of vested wrongs for which the grafters
will try to make Canada pay. The people of Canada are
suddenly awakening to the fact that Canada should own
the C. P. R., and every other transportation line within
her boundaries. Between vested rights and wrongs which
will present themselves for settlement in the process of
nationalization the political battles of the future will be
fought. But Canada will some day own the C. P. R.;
and that day will come much earlier than the great majority
of Canadians expect.
How circumstances alter cases. Previous to the 9th
of June the opponents of Joe Martin said that it was
absolutely impossible to build a road from the Coast to
Kootenay. Now the Coast papers which opposed Joe
come unblushingly forward with the statement that the
C. P. R. has found a feasible route thru the Similkameen.
It is easy to see why the road was impracticable as a government project. The C. P. R. wants to build it themselves.
The old gentleman who runs the paper down beside
the bear has struck a new lead. He now wants the government to grubstake prospectors who have meritorious
claims and are too poor to work them. This is an inspiration of genius, but the Mining Review man had better
pause a moment and consider what he is agitating for.
First thing he knows someone will call him a socialist and
the shock will kill him.
The fact of the matter is that it is not really a lack of
ability to develop his property that usually separates the
prospector from success. It is that his efforts are not
properly directed. Any claim in the Slocan camp that has
a good showing opened up to any reasonable extent can be
sold at a good cash price right now, and the day never has
been since the camp was opened   up that  such was not the
case. But the majority of prospectors do not make an
effort to open their properties up. I hey prefer to re-stake
and spend their otherwise unoccupied time in searching f0r
more claims to stake, spending more time and money in
the effort than would in many cases make them rich on
property thev already possess. There are prospectors in
this camp who have more claims on record than the\
could possibly represent in a year if they worked steady
all the time. ' There are claims within a mile of this town
that have half a dozen sets of stakes on them. More tha,,
one claim in the hands of a man of small means is super-
fluous. One claim is sufficient to make a man rich. .\
dozen of them will keep a prospector poor all   his life,
It is not a government grubstake that is wanted, but a
title in usufruct, or something close to it. It should be
imperative that the locator of a mineral claim do a certain
amount of work on it before recording his location, and it
should also be imperative that he do a reasonable amount
of work each year. Within a limited number of years he
should be compelled to take out his patent and all unworked
crown-granted claims should be assessed on their assumed
value and taxed to the limit. No man should have privilege to with-hold from others resources which he will not
develop himself. There are supposed to be laws to similar
effect on the statute books of B. C., but they are dodged
and avoided at every turn. These laws are full of loopholes and should be wiped off and replaced by an enact-
ment that would be effective. Such a law would compel
prospectors to confine their attentions to one or two claims,
and it would also prevent psuedo capitalists from holding
unworked claims while others proved them valuable b\
developing adjacent property.
If the government is to go into the grubstaking business it might as well go for the whole amount and take
over the mining industry altogether. It would look like
the height of generosity for a government to give it>
mineral resources away to private individuals and then lend
them the capital to develop these resources. When the
government has the land and money in the first place, win
should not the peop'e as a whole gain from the development of the country's resources ? At some future date.
after the government has taken o\ex the transportation
business and the smelting and refining industries, there is
no doubt that it will nationalize the mining industry, as
has been done in Sweden, Japan, parts of Russia, and,
with certain classes of mining, in Chili and Peru. There
is already an agitation in Ontario to make the mining and
smelting of iron and nickel in that Province a national
industry, and there is no good reason why it should not
be done.
At a recent meeting of the Rossland liberal association a letter was read from Hewitt Bostock, M. P., i'1
which he stated that the pressure of his private business
was such that he would probably be unable to contest the
riding again. This looks as tho Bostock were going to
make his escape from Dominion politics. It is about time
he did. Hewitt is a nice man, but as a Dominion representative his effeminacy mars his usefulness. His term oi
office at Ottawa has been largely taken up with framing
excuses for the Laurier government's railway steals and its
refusal to exclude Chinamen. If Hewitt is wise he will
stay by his verdict and quit politics. The liberals in
Kootenay are tired of him, and while they don't wish to do
anything ungentlemanly they would have to turn him
down at the nomination or sacrifice all chances of success*
If Bostock were drawing to a lumber yard he wouldnI
catch a knot hole in the B. C. political jackpot.
Thk Bryan Democrats have declared for direct legislation. This is the most radical advance in United States
politics since the days of Jeff Davis and Abe Lincoln. mm

Hobos Must Go.
At a meeting of the Police Commissioners was held yesterday afternoon at
which it was decided that the hobos,
toughs, plug-uglies, grafters, sand-
baggers, pimps and all others of the
undesirable element infesting ibis community must move on. ll" they arc
wise they will take tbe hint and pull
their freight for other parts.
There was no business of importance
transacted at the City Council meeting
last Monday night. Mayor Pitts presented bis resignation but it was shelved
by the council. The reports of police
magistrate and tbe fire department
committee were read. A large bunch
of accounts totalling $740.09 were approved and ordered paid. Tbe Board
of Works were CO nmissioned to look
into tbe matter of building a sidewalk
on Reco avenue.
Last Night's Council Meeting.
At a special meeting last night the
council authorized tbe board of works
to call lor tenders for an eight-foot sidewalk from Cunnings to the Central hotel
corner, on Reco avenue.
Mayor Pitts announced bis intention
of leaving for tbe east on Tuesday and
appointed John Buckley to act in bis
Tbe lire committee's report was accepted and the council decided to follow
its suggestions.
The Fire Committee.
The committee of business men appointed at a public meeting on Wednesday of last week to reorganize the
lire brigade, reported to tbe city council on Monday evening last. They
recommended that three different brigades be formed and lire apparatus be
supplied for each. They expressed it
as their belief that the greatest protection would be afforded by building
three stations, one central station near
Atberton's store another sub-station
near Byers' and tbe third below the
Kootenay hotel ; a sub-chief to be
appointed for each and the mayor to be
chief of the whole brigade.
The New School.
Plans and specifications for the new-
school have been prepared by J. W.
Balmain and will be submitted to the
department of education at Victoria for
approval. Tbe plans call for a building 32 x 54, two stories and basement.
There will be a class room on each of
the two flats with accomodation for 42
pupils  each.     The  basement  will  be
used as a play-room. The will be an
air space of 254 cubic feet for each
pupil. There is ample provision for
thoro ventilation, and altogether tbe
plans seem calculated to fetch out the
best effect considering tbe difficulties of
the site.
Great Excitement in Dateson.
Miners recently arrived in Victoria tell
of great excitement in Dawson over tbe
Indian   River   finds   of conglomerate.
Assays give all the way from $8 to $^S
to the ton. There is said to be thousands of miles in the extent of tbe ore.
Miners think that it will surpass the
Johannesburg mines. A mix-up has
arisen from the fact that the miners'do
not know whether to consider the conglomerate quartz or placer. Some
staked it as epiartz claims and others
as placer. There is a big difference in
the size of the two classes of claims.
The Population of China.
It is generally asserted and believed
that.China has 400,000,000 people.
But the number may easily be exaggerated by a hundred millions or even
more, for little credence can be given
to Oriental assertions, so imaginative
and apt to exaggerate are tbe Asiatics,
and no westerner really knows anything worth mentioning of tne vast interior ol* the Celestial Empire. Those
regions which have been visited and in
part explored by tbe western traveller
and missionary  are  certainly  crowded

been fortunate enough to open np a

thai they are favorably located within
three miles of Ihe railroad.
Mi. Pollen, of Fort Steele, has an
option above the falls, formerly operated
In Charlie Edwards, Qui Theisi and
Jack Thompson, and is prospecting the
ground with a view to ascertaining1
whether there is sufficient pay there to
warrant hvdraulicing.  Should his hopes
be realised, there may once more be
extensive placer operations on historic
Perry creek.
I he Estella ffTOUp Of mines on Tracy

Pelican, < ml I t-omiuioti and other claims
in which he is interested Those propel lies are located two miles south of
the Perry Creek and Kootenay company'*, and ha-'e had considerable work
done on them up to the present time.
The showing on the surface "f these
claims is snid to be remarkable, pan
niiigs of free gold running up to as high
a- $150 per too, which has open heen
obtained, ihe gold hoing quite coarsest

however,-whether nr nnl the gold will

The Perry Creek nnd Kootenav Mining
Company, Limited, i>> prosecuting work
mosl vigorously, and on the Pearl Is
now in 800 feet <>n a crosscut tunnel for
a large ledge which makes a very line
Bliowing on the surface. On the Ran
ning Wolf the same companv has a
tunnel In 10 I feet; tins is also in a very
large ledge,which,so far ns now known.
will makes good eynniding proposition.
Opposite the Running Wolf is the Elk
horn, also being worked, where there IS
n'1'l-fnol  tunnel  on  a   lead,  giving n
depth of about 150 feet, the conditions
regarding ore. are much the same as in
the others.
���I P. Rniley made, a find a few days
Run thnt makes an excellent start for
something good. It is located near
Swansea, and he has named it the
Pretoria, On the claim there appears
to lie three quartz veins, one in the
center, and one live feet from that on
���'���I'll side, and from appearance so far
i'1 n Kolld formation. A hole a few feet
i" depth has been sunk on the middle
vein, which was very narrow at the
R"i'face, but at the bottom of the hole
shows 15 inches of quartz, showing
������'op er pyrites and carbonates through-
"ul more or loss, and a 5-inch si\- r*,k of
galena said to assay $12 in sllvei and
v| "I gold,percentage of lend unknown,
��ul appearau -es would indicate from 10
to 25 per cent. The ore in many respects resembles thatof the Union .Jack
One hundred and thirty carloads of
��re were shipped during June from the
North Star and Sullivan mines, 20 miles
northwest of Cranbrook, all clean ore���
not concentrates-just as it comes from
the mines. The amount coming from
each mine is not known, but the major
portion is from the North Star. It is
not unlikely that the Sullivan's output
in three months' time will equal the
present output Of tbe North Star, and
the shipments will be no less than 200
cars per month from both mines, which
will average net to them, at a moderate
estimate. $14 per ton. At that rate the
shipment of the past month, allowing
180 cars, 22 tons to the car, must ha**e
netted returns of not less than $10,000,
aud this is believed to be a very moderate estimate, under rather than over
The St Eugene, at Moyie, 20 miles west
of Cranbrook, shipped 1800 tons of concentrates, or about 82 car loads���value
Unknown���but it is believed that $11
net returns would be a large underestimate, which would at this rate produce
$25,200 net. Added to the mines of
Kimherley camp, a grand total of $65,-
240 net returns would be given for the
mouth of June.

For this reason I have made varioiiB
complaints against you for your offensive
conduct, through the members of our

endless apologies, but ��.s I find them

Henceforth I will not entertain any

in proof thereof witness my signature.

Sir,���It is undisputably true that I
have been guilty of intimacy with your
beloved wife,and on that account I have
sent you apologies through the members
of our communal body. You, however,
steadfastly refuse, to forgive and have
instead forwarded your wife to me. I
beg herewith to acknowledge receipt of
said wife, etc.

A Good Place to Stay Aicaq From.
Bill Dunn  returned on  Sunday last
from Cape  Nome.     According  to his
description the  much-advertised Arctic
gold field is a great place to keep away
from.    There  are between   thirty and
forty thousand  victims   of gold   fever
camped on a sand beach about 150 feet
wide.    On one side lies the  Arctic  sea
stretching away to the North Pole and
on   the   other is   the   tundra, or bog,
stretching, as Hill describes it, "to hell
and beyant."    There  is  only  this narrow stretch of sand   beach on which to
live.    Thousands of  unfortunates  are
huddled   together  here   in   tents   and
shacks of the telephone type.    There is
no drainage or  water  system  and   no
attempt whatever at sanitation.    When
a storm comes up the water  rises  and
runs right over the  beach, flooding the
town, but the   inhabitants   must   stand
and take it*���there is no place else to go
10.    There is no timber in   the vicinity.
Coal is so dear one can hardly afford to
look at it.    Kerosene is about the same
price as champagne and as for lumber,
it costs two  or three  fortunes to think
about   it   at all.    The   town   is under
martial law.    Gun   plays   are frequent
and toughs and plug-uglies more numerous than tinhorns in Sandon.    Gambl-
ers, gin dealers and the sporting element
have lots of money and bet their dust
in shovel-fulls. With few exceptions
the claims are no good. There are a
few rich streaks of pay gravel but there
are miles and miles of claims staked
thai are not worth the staking.
Hill met nearly all the Sandon crowd
while up there. Hob and Charlie Hammond have an outfit of six mules on
the beach and did good business while
the rush was on. Ed Mathews had
several tons of useless machinery on the
beach and was figuring on returning to
Seattle. Tom Tighe and Hilly Donahue were forty miles farther up the
beach working on some ground located
by Hilly Donahue's brother. Jimmy

who was in the Reco hotel last summer
