Wm. Sudrow Dead.
Hospital Neics.
Tke hospital has been crowded this
week, having no less than six patients
on the list, none of whom, however,
are suffering from any serious ailments.
Holly Smith fell thru a stope at the
Last Chance and suffered slight injuries
which will keep him in the hospital for
a few days. John Matthews, also from
the Chance, and George Woodruff from
the Ruth are also patients from slight
accidents met with in  persuit of their
perilous vocation.
R. F. Green was among the visitors
at the hospital on Friday, and he expressed himself as being immensely
pleased to find the hospital such a
complete and comfortable institution.
News was received here early this
week of the death in Riverside, California, on Sunday afternoon last of
Wm. Sudrow.
Deceased was a pioneer of the Slocan
and was well known to nearly everyone
in the district. He was a native of the
state of Nebraska, but since 1885 had
been a resident of British Columbia.
In '85, '86 and '87 he followed placer
mining in the Similkameen country
and later was a prominent figure on
the Coast during the boom days there.
When the mineral resaurces of the
Kootenay first attracted attention he
came to Nelson, and was one of the
argonauts of that town in '89 and '90.
Later when the Slocan was opened up
he moved to Kaslo and engaged in the
hotel business, opening The Club
Hotel. Before the days of railroads in
the Slocan he located several valuable
properties in the vicinity of Sandon, on
which he afterward realized handsomely. Until about a year ago he conducted the Filbert Hotel in this city,
when poor health forced  him  to  leave
for a milder climate. A derangement
of the liver was the ailment from which
he suffered, and which finally brot
about his end. His wife and brother,
Jack, were with him in California for
several months prior to his demise.
Thomas Brown left on Tuesday for
Nelson, Rossland, Greenwood, Grand
Forks aud Phoenix. He will probably
locate in the latter town.

us. Commencing in about ten days, a
thru service will be established between
Spokane and Sandon. The train will
leave Spokane about 8 a. m., reaching
Bonner's Ferry about noon, and Sandon
at 8:15 p. m. The train leaving Sandon will depart at 7 a. m., connecting
with the Kootenay Valley railway at
Kuskonook at 2:40 p. m., reaching
Bonner's Ferry at 5 p. m., and Spokane
;it 9:30 p. m. Connections will be
made with steamers at Pilot Bay for
Nelson. The Nelson passenger train
on the Spokane Falls & Northern railway will be taken off and a mixed
train run on that road, the intention
being to handle all the Nelson passenger traffic via Bonner's Ferry.
About that Appropriation.
W. H. Lilly left on Thursday morning for Victoria, where he will make
representations to the provincial government regarding the appropriation for
the new city hall and other municipal
improvements. It appears that the
estimated cost of the building was $2,-
000, but the lowest tender on the plans
approved by the department of lands
and works is $3,200. Adding $1,000
as the cost of the ground,   there would
only remain $800 of the $5,000 appropriated, all of which would be required
to liquidate the smallpox accounts.
According to these figures, therefore,
there would be no money left to complete the flume, and the city clerk s
mission to Victoria it to try to secure
from the commissioner of lands and
works a promise of a further appropriation of $2,000 with which to complete
the flume down to the power house.
Commissioner Wells was in Nelson this
week, but did not visit Sandon on his
wav out.

When the stormy breezes bluster
Thru the shade  tree  lank and bare,
And the tiny frost Hakes sparkle
In the chilly morning air,
Then we take an inventory
And o'er useful things we gloat ;
Naught can  wake  our  tender interest
Like last winter's overcoat.
Tenderly we pick the mothballs
From the pockets where they've lain,
And  with  the  sponge  and  brush  we
To remove each spot and stain ;
Mourning o'er the frequent tokens
Of our hungry friend the moth,
Where he foraged at his leisure
On the sleek imported cloth.
But at   length with   some   misgivings,
We pronounce it fit to wear ;
And we shun their dude companions
a-\nd resent their haughty stare.
And we're apt to lose some slumber
And some envy we devote
To the man who need not worry
O'er last winter's overcoat.

Nome is Mot So Bad.
Roderick McMillan, of Nome City,
Alaska, a brother of our townsman,
Alex McMillan, was in Sandon for a
few days this week on his way home to
Glengarry, Ont., and while in town
paid a call at the Printing Palace.
Mr. McMillan has been in Nome
since early last spring, and his account
of the northern camp is of a much
more cheerful nature than that of many
others returning from that camp. The
beach claims, of which so much has
been said and written, are not, Mr.
McMillan says, what they were represented to be. As he puts it, "I don't
want any beach claims in mine." But
the creek claims on Anvil, Snow and
many other creeks are good and have
already produced considerable gold.
Not long before he left prospectors
came in from the district back of Nome
150 or 200 miles, bringing in course
gold from new strikes in that country.
Almost all this region   remains   to   be
prospected, and in fact little is known
of the country's resources except along
a comparatively narrow strip close to
the shore line. The possibilities for
this district are great.
Mr McMillan has some valuable
claims in the Nome country and intends
returning on the first boat in the spring.
He will spend the winter with the old
folks back in Glengarry.

SANDON, B. C.,  NOVEMBER 17,  1900.
From a review of the recent general elections it is
evident that the government ownership of railways is to be
the nea\t issue in Canadian politics. The signal success
which attended the avowed advocates of government railways, both in eastern and western Canada, is a sufficient
evidence that popular sentiment favors the change.
Hon. A. G. Blair, minister of railways, came out flatly
during the last session with the declaration that the time
had arrived when the government must own the railways or
the railways would very soon own the government. Under
Blair's administration the Intercolonial has become a paying concern, instead of being a mere feeder ofthe C. P. R.
In the city of St. John, New Brunswick, the point most
affected by the hostilities between the government system
and the Canadian Pacific, A. G. Blair defeated George E.
Foster by over a thousand votes. Mr. Foster's crushing
defeat was due entirely to his frendliness for the C. P. R.,
and a presentiment on the part of electors that he would, if
returned to power, sacrifice the interests of the Intercolonial
for the benefit ofthe Canadian Pacific.
At a public meeting in West York, shortly before
polling day, N. Clark Wallace was asked for his views on
the railway question. His answer was clear and to the
point. He said : "I believe the time has arrived when the
government should own all the railways." Clark Wallace
was elected by a majority of 900.
W. F. Mac Lean, who has been dubbed "the man with
the knife" on account of his propensity for knifing railway
deals, is not only an ardent advocate of public ownership
but has adopted the People's Party platform in its entirety.
At the general election of '96, when he ran as a conservative, MacLean was elected by the narrow majority of seven
votes.    This time his plurality is 715.
Klcepfer in South Wellington, McEwen in South
Huron, McCarthy in South Simcoe and Kemp in East
Toronto are government ownership men from the province
of Ontario who were returned by good majorities.
In the west, Puttee's majority in Winnipeg totalled
over eleven hundred votes, and government ownership is
his strongest plank. Richardson, of Lisgar, who was
declared out of the liberal party because his railway policy
was distasteful to Clifford Sifton, gained a splendid victory
over the combined power of the C, P. R. and the machine
politicians on both sides. Frank Oliver, who has gone
hand in hand with Richardson in opposition to corporate
railroads, was returned by a comfortable majority in
Alberta, and Ralph Smith got all the votes he wanted and
enuf to spare to make several majorities under ordinary
In fact, from Atlantic to Pacific, it seems that Hugh
John is the only government railway candidate who met
defeat, and it is worth remembring that Hugh John, after
being elected premier of Manitoba on that policy, made no
effort to carry out his ante-election promises. There is no
reason to doubt that had Sifton been opposed by some
stronger man, such as Richardson, McLean or Wallace, or
had he been up against a man of the stamp of Chris Foley,
all his money^ patronage, corporate influence and corruption
could not have saved him from ignominious defeat.
There is another very significient circumstance which,
in this connection, may be taken as a promising indication!
It is this. When the Manufacturer's Association met at
Toronto last summer it passed very strong memorials to
the government suggesting that the administration adopt
the strongest kind of measures to force a reduction in
freight rates, and the association advised that the rational
method by which the government should secure such
reduction was by assuming absolute control of the railways
wherever reasonable concessions were refused. The Manufacturer's Association is one of the strongest industrial institutions in America, and in Sir John's time gained great
prominence, under the soubriquet of "The Red Parlor," as
a dictator of government policies. To its influence the
election of E. A. Kemp in East Toronto is due. Such
suggestions, coming from an organization of this kind,
clearly indicate that the manufacturers of the east thoroly
appreciate the gravity of the situation, and we may expect
to hear from them before long in no uncertain terms.
Everything points, as we said before, to the early
appearance in the dominion house of a strong party, made
up of independents and members of both the old parties,
which will force the government into some tangible action,
such as the extension of the Intercolonial to Toronto and
Georgian Bay. What this would mean to the people west
ofthe great lakes is too evident to require comment.
Here is a deep lesson for the electors of Yale-Cariboo-
Kootenay. On the 6th of December they will be asked to
choose a candidate, and it will be a great mistake if thev do
not choose a man who can be depended on to support the
government railway propaganda whenever the opportunity
presents itself. In candidates Galliher and MacNeill the
people can place but slight confidence. They are both
party men, and their loyalty to their party is likely at the
critical moment to outweigh their loyalty to their constiu-
Chris Foley is an independent candidate. He owes
allegiance to neither party, and is in nowise subservient lo
any clique, creed or corporation. His hands are free, and
should he be required to vote against either or both parties
in the service of his constituents and in conformity with his
platform he is not only at liberty but is in duty bound to do
so, and an acquaintence with the man is sufficient guarantee
that no party affiliations will ever be permitted to stand
between the independent candidate and his duty to his constituents.
Chris Foley is the only candidate before the electors of
Yale-Cariboo-Kootenay who can be absolutely depended
on to vote for government ownership of railways. This is
the live issue in Canadian politics today and will be for
many years to come. It means to the west cheaper freight
and passenger rates. It means increased prosperity, more
of the comforts and luxuries of life and closer touch with
centres of civilization in the outside world. It means the
preserving of the country's land and natural resources to
the actual settler, the prospector, the miner and the lumberman, instead of for the land grabber and the charter
monger. It means, greatest of all, the banishment from
Canadian politics ofthe debauching, corrupting, demoralizing influence of the railroads.
Vote for Chris Foley and government ownership ol
D. J. Macdonald, returning officer for the electoral
district of Yale-Cariboo-Kootenay, has fixed the date oi
nomination for Monday, November 19th and polling day
Thursday, December 6th. The former statement that the
election would be held on November 21st was based on an
unoflicial announcement by the returning officer, and is
not correct. Polling dav in this district is one day earlier
than in Burrard.
;*, Brief SUetch ol* the Labor Leader
lor Yule-Cariboo-Kootenuij.
Christopher Foley  was horn in the
city of Toronto in 1X4X. Five years
���j,ter hia, parents removed to Paris,
Out., where lie worked sin his father's
j.irm until 14 years of age, when he
started out In life for himself, going to
the southern part of the Unikd St.ites,
where I"*-' travelled extensively until
1866, when he left the south and went
ttest. Reaching-the mountain country,
he commenced prospecting, and has
mined and prospected with varying
success from the City of Mexico to the
Kraser river.
In 1886 he settled in Vancouver,
wluie he engaged in contracting, and
succeeded hy close attention to business
in an umulating considerable money,
Aii'ah he invested in Vancouver real
estate. The panic of '93 and the
slump in real estate which accompanied
il hit Mr. Foley hard, and he was compelled to sacrifice much valuable property and to seek new fields. Two
rears later lie came to Ros-l.unJ and
commenced as a working miner in the
Commander mine. Since then he has
followed the occupation of a miner, and
has worked in several mines   in   the
camp, at present being employed in the
Centre Star.
He had been a resident of Rossland
but a few months when he became a
member of Rossland Miners' Union
So. t8. il'|S fellow members at once
recognized his*great executive ability,
.md thrust him lo the front. Always
refusing to hold many offices proffered
him, he has, almost ever since his admission into the union, been a member
of the executive board; a most responsible position, and one which often calls
tor the hard, practical business sense
which Mr. Foley has in a remarkable
degree, and his influence with the Rossland union as well as with the whole
Federation* has been great. The recent
convention of the Western Fedaration
ol' Miners chose him to represent this
province on the executive board ol that
great organization, and in that position
lie has shown marked  ability.
Three or four years ago Mr. Foley
commenced the study sif social questions, and that study has placed him in
the front rank sif social and
reformers of the Dominion
viewed after he had accepted tlu* nomination, Chris Foley said: "1 did not
want the nomination, but under the
circumstances,   when   the   convention
asked me to be the standard-bearer, 1
would indeed have been a traitor had 1
refused, In accepting it 1 considered
tlie cause rather than myself."
MacNeill Withdraw.
Robert F* Green brot tbe news to
Sandon on Thursdav that the conservative candidate, A." II. MacNeill, had
decided to withdraw from the contest,
leaving the held to Foley and Galliher.
t: MacNeill and his  friends no doubt
recognize the useless.^ of ���,,���,������*,..������.
ng a hopeless contest, and resolved to
leave a clear field for Foley.
The withdrawal of the" conservative
Candidate immensely strengthens the
Standing of Candidate Foley, and the
desperate efforts being put forward by
Hie liberal party ���ien to capture the
vote in East Kootenay and Vale are
evidences that ihe Galliher people
recognize that their case is a serious
one, if not altogether hopeless.
