rink in Sandon this winter.
Quite a number of curlers and hockey
players were present, and the proposition was started off hy, appointing a
committee of five to ipterview property
owners and obtain information about
the prohable cost and desirability of
whatever sites could lie found. The
committee found that there are three
sites available. The first consists of
five lots sin Colonel Brayton's townsite
below the present curling rink. The
second is the space between the power
house and the city lockup, an area of
five lots, in all 80 x 150 feet. The
third is up Cody avenue, four lots of
Lawrence Doolan's, one of Chas. McLaughlin's and one Of Mr." Emeus';
The figures at which these 'properties
can be acquired have not:*8yet been received by the committee;-*-*and "Until the
figures are obtained it cannot be stated

The New Orleans Picayune, in a recent iU^ubf }6'6ks'at it lilce this: "The
freeing of the West Indian negroes and
of the Russian serfs were the acts of
statesmanship and philanthropy conjoined. The freed people were benefitted and the masters were not robbed
or wronged. The object sought in
freeing the negro slaves in the United
States was to humiliate and oppress
and crush the white people of the
Southern States. It was attempted not
only by plundering them of their property, bat also by disfranchising the
whites and depriving them of citizenship, while those who had been their
slaves were placed in power and authority over them.
������But while every inconceivable indignity and wrong was being perpetrated upon the white people of the
United States, the perpetrators were
unwittingly preparing for the white
peopl.i of the Northern States untold
troubles and misfortunes, which, while
thev were for some time held in obey-
ance, have now begun to plague those
who it was never intended should he
"Those troubles come in the form of
disturbances to the labor system of the
Northern States. It has been found
that theSouthern negro can underwork
the Northern whites. There are many
departments of labor in which the
Southern negro is extremely efficient.
He can render in them as satisfactory
service as can the whites, and he can
and will work cheaper. The urgency
of business competition will force the
producer to use every possible economy
to put his product on the market to the
greatest advantage, and, in applying
the most available means of economiz
labor will always have to bear
moVe or less of the burden.
"Then there is another advantage in
the negro. He cares but little for organizations that deprive him of his
individual liberty. Trades union associations meet but little encouragement from him. Thus it is that the
negro laborer is going to become a
most formidable factor in the labor problem of the United States. In fact, the
"Race Question" U not only a political
and social problem, but a labor question
"It may be claimed that the labor of
the negroes will always be needed in
the South. There will be negroes in
the Southern States for long years to
come, but there will be some millions
also to send North to meet the demands
for their labor there. The meet the
demand, already hundreds of thousands
of Italians and Slavs have been brought
across the ocean to underwork the other
white laborers, but they soon learn the
advantages of organization, and they
soon stand for the same wages and
terms as were demanded by the men
they were intended to supersede. Now
the negro will be wanted to take the
place of the Italian and the Croat, and
no prejudice of color or caste can prevent it. Capital has neither prejudice
nor sentiment.
"Moreover, when the Southern plantations shall be laid waste hy the free
importation of sugar and rice from the
new United States territories in the
Caribbean and Indian Archipelagoes,
the negroes Will be forced to desert the
South in a body, and they will go North,
where employment will await them
"Then there is tho native populations
of those East Indian and West Indian
territories of the United States. Thev
will 'flock hither to escape from the
escape from the pauper wages which
prevail in their own countries, and,
being citizens, they will have the right
to come. Men who are accustomed to
work for a dime a day will here be able
to earn a dollar. With such a prospect,
they will come by the million as soon as
thev have the means. But few years
will elapse befoie every steamer from
the Indian seas and from Hawaii, and
from the West Indies, will be brinjnnjr
"Thus it is that the Race Question
becomes a labor question. That is one
of the phases of the problem that has
been but little heretofore considered."
It is becoming less and less possible
for the man who puts his faith in
scientific methods of ascertaining truth,
and is accustomed to have that faith
justified by daily experience, to be con
sciously false to his principle in any
matter. But the number of such men,
driven into the use of scientific method*
of inquiry and taught to trust them, by
their education, their daily professional
and business needs, is increasing and
will continually increase. The phraseology of supernatural ism may remain
on men's lips, hut in practice they are
naturalists. The magistrate who listens
with devout attention to the precept,
"Thou shalt not suffer a witch to live,''
on Sunday, on Monday dismisses, as
intrinsically absurd, a charge of bewitching a cow brought against an old
woman. The superintendent of a
lunatic asylum who substituted exorcism
for rational model of treatment would
have but a short tenure of office Even
parish clerks doubt the utility of
prayers for rain, so long as the wind i-*
in the east, and an outbreak of pestilence sends men, not to the churches,
but to the drains. In spite of prayers
for the success of our arms and "Te
Deums" for victory, our real faith is in
big battalions and keeping our powder
dry; in knowledge of the science of warfare; in energy, courage and discipline.
In these, as in all other practical affairs,
we act on the aphorism "Laborare est
orare"; we admit that Intelligent work
is the. only acceptable worship, and
that, whether there is a Bupernature or
not, our business is with nature.���Huxley.

Laurier Tetaing an Unfair Adcentaax
of His Political Cotemporaries.
In Wilfrid Laurier's Montreal Speech
iurunspired that the liberal government is acting in cohoots with Providence to distribute good crops, prosperity and oilier gills sif nature anions
ihe Canadian people, Hi** disclosure
0 the little game was as lOllows: |
"The  most   striking  teature ot the j
present  political   situation   is  the  immense progress that  has taken place in
the last  few   years  under   the  liberal
government,    it is the   impetus that
has been  given   to  business, and the
wonder ul activity  that   has been displayed  in  every   form   0   commercial
enterprise.    It 'is  the   prosperity  that
has reigned throughout  the country.
That   prosperity  is  admitted   by   our
enemies, the  Bleus 01 the province 01
Quebec,  and tbe  Tories of ot the province Ol Ontario  and of the   maritime
provinces, by conservatives ol all colors
and shades of colors.    That prosperity
they admit; thev cannot deny it) tbey
have not come to tbe  point ol denying
a thing  which  everybody is aware  01
Hie existence.    But the  go tar.     1 hey
do not deny tbe   prosperity, that WOU d
be useless',  but   thev  say  you should
reuse us your   support   because  mat
prosperity  is tbe   work of Provindence.
"Providence is a strong word in the
mouth of a conservative, especially at
elleciion time, when these gentleman
are in the habit of trusting SO little to
Providences but 1 do not deny their
assertion. We owe much to I rovi-
dence, and 1 hope we are not wanting
in gratitude, and 1 bless Providence
that it has been on our side. Alter all,
Providence has used us as its instruments to distribute its most precious
gifts among the people of Canada.

From the industrious and persistent manner in which
the conservative press is booming Hugh John as "the man
who keeps his word," the worthy son of his father must be
a lonely member of his party.
By a majority of 38 to 22 the Dominion Trades and
Labor Congress, recently in session at Ottawa, passed a
resolution favoring independent political action. The
effect of this decision by representatives of labor from all
parts of Canada will be felt at the forthcoming election.
The Court of Revision for the Slocan electoral
district will be held in Kaslo on November 5th. All new
names must be entered fourteen clear days before the date
of the Court, which makes October 20th the last day on
which applicants can have their names incorporated in
the new list. Forms of application can be obtained at this
office and from the collector of voters, Kaslo, and all
applications should be addressed to him. Any who have
not already had their names placed on the voters' list
should do so immediately.
During a recent trial in Vancouver of Japs who were
charged with falsely swearing to three years' residence, a
sligh sensation was developed. It appears that the prisoners, or presumably hundreds of other Japs, were not
required to take the oath of residence at all, but immediately on arriving here from Japan were handed naturalization papers by Japanese labor contractors, duly made out in
their names, so that they could secure fishing licenses at
once. Tiiere is a wholesale farce connected with the administration of the naturalization laws in Vancouver.
Wilfred Laurier has appointed a commission to
examine into and report upon Asiatic labor and immigration. Coming so close to election time, Wilfred's work is
a trifle crude. Tne Laurier government has had the
manipulation of the dominion legislative machinery for four
years and during that time has done practically nothing to
prohibit the immigration of Asiatics. By appointing a
commission of inquiry, the government leaders practically
say "we do not know wltat the people want." If Laurier
and his government cannot find out what tlie people of
British Columbia want without appointing some kind of a
fake commission to go thru the motions of making an investigation, then that government is in nowise in touch
with the people, and it should be replaced by men who are.
The big strike in the anthracite region in Pennsylvania is assuming national importance. Over one hundred
thounsand mine workers are idle, the mines have nearly
all been closed down, the militia has been called out and
the Lehigh turned into an armed camp. On the outside
coal is rapidly advancing in price, industrial conditions are
badly disturbed, and thousands are being thrown out of
employment and compelled to suffer hardship thru a quarrel
to which they are no party.
In the meantime Mark   Hanna and  his protege, Wm
jnley, are   parading   the   country  on   the prosperity
plan, telling the people of the great and glorious United
States of monopoly that a full dinner pail and a privilege to
exist are the great' blessings that can be secured by re.
electing the republican party and declaring for a continuation of the present industrial system. There is a missed
hole in Mark's logic somewhere. If the present trouble in
Pennsylvania is an exemplification of the prosperity thai
goes with the industrial system which Mark champions,
then the full dinner pail line of argument is merely stereo.
typed sarcasm. If the present industrial system is con.
ducive to prosperity it seems a trifle strange that seven
thousand boys, from eight to fifteen years of age, should
be condemned to a boyhood of drudgery in the deep black
hell of Pennsylvania's coal pits. It seems a trifle strange
that one hundred and fifty thousand men should he com.
pelled to toil and sweat thru a life of misery and squalor
for an average wage of 90 cents a day. And it seems
strange that when these men demand a little larger share
of the necessaries of life that their demands should be met
with the bayonet.
It will be a long time yet before the people of the
United States remedy the injustice which leads to such
circumstances as exist in Pennslyvania, but so long as
these circumstancesydoexist there will be men like Hanna
and McKinley to defend the system, and men like Croker
and Bryan to make capital out of its iniquities.
A Labor convention will be held in Nelson on Wednesday, October 3rd, for the purpose of deciding whether
or not a labor candidate shall be nominated to contest the
constituency of Yale-Cariboo-Kootenay. Trades and labor
councils, labor unions, socialist clubs and political reform
societies from all parts of the riding will send representatives, and the voice of the convention should fairly indicate
the sentiments of labor and independents in this riding.
If this convention decides to nominate a candidate it will
be because the delegates present are satisfied that a labor
candidate will win. The labor party does not intend to
throw itself off on a hopeless struggle, and unless the convention finds reason to believe that a labor man can be
elected no nomination will be made.
When the Sandon city council took office last January
it was with the mutual understanding that the members
would resign as soon as the special act was passed making
more citizens eligible for the offices of mayor and aldermen.
Owing to the breaking up of the Semi in government the
desired legislation was delayed several months. Since the
Dunsmuir government came into power there have been
further delays, and it is now found that an election could
not be held until a few weeks before the regular election.
In consequence the aldermen have decided to hold office
until the expiration of their term.
During the last few months, on account of this unsettled state of affairs, municipal matters have been administered in a lax manner. It is now the duty oi the city
council to reorganize those departments with which the
citizens express dis-satisfaction. There is something off-
color about the police department and the city team has
become a municipal burlesque. The city council should
fix these matters up immediately.
Owing to the peculiar set of circumstances under
which the city council has held office in the past Thk Paystreak has refrained from pointing out certain municipal
matters that would not otherwise have passed un-noticed..

A Large Amount of Business Done
at Monday's Meeting. Will be
no Election this Year.
There was a council meeting on
Monday evening at which an unusual
amount of husiness was done. Tlie
members present were, acting mayor
BucUley. aldermen Crawford, Hunter,
Atherton and Mucdonold.
A communication from the atlomey-
general was read, staling that the hat
for tlie city election could not be issued
nmtiltthe lieutenant-governor returned
to-* Victoria, Which would probably be a
mttttof of a week or more. This com-
muniCUiion invoked a discussion on the
advisability of holding an election between llii.' date at which the fiat could
be secured and the regular election,
which takes place early in Januarv. It
was shown that by the time the Hat
was issued and the due notice of election
was jifiven lhat there would then be
only about 30 days, or at most not over
six weeks between that and the regular
election. Considering* the inconvenience
and expense attached to an extra
election, the council considered that it
would be inadvisable to hold one before the regular date. In consequence
of this decision the city clerk was instructed to write the attorney-general
requesting him to with-hold action in
the matter until further notice. The
aldermen will also withdraw their resignations, which were handed in on
September 7th.
Communications regarding the $5000
grant from the provincial government
were read. The provincial auditor
stated that certain stipulations went
with the grant and that the commissioner of lands and works would be in
Sandon in a few days to make arrangements with regard to these. The stipulations mentioned are understood to
relate to the government offices which
are to be provided in the city hall. In
discussing this matter it was decided
that the council should take immediate
action to secure a site for the city hall,
so that when Mr. Wells, the commissioner, came in he could be given an
opportunity to approve or dis-approve
of the same. For this purpose acting-
mayor Buckley appointed the aldermen
present a committee to enquire into the
matter of a site and be ready to report
at a special meeting of the council
which will be called when Ihe commissioner arrives.
A communication was also read from
E. L Bond, Montreal, acknowledging
receipt of interest on coupons which
were destroyed in the Sandon fire.
A communication from R. J. Lovell
of Toronto regarding a stationery account of some $67 against the city, an J
another missive trom the New Westminster fair management inviting Ihe
council to take ui the celebration, were
read and disposed of in the usual manner.
The matter of fire apparatus was
next brot up. The Gutta Percha &
Rubber Co. in Toronto has had mi
order for some fourteen hundred worth
of fire apparatus since a few days before Ihe fire but up to date, so far as
the council had been able to discover,
the apparatus has not been shipped.
The city clerk was instructed to wire
the company and ask them to give an
account of themselves without delay.
The matter of water protection was
also considered. The Sandon Water
& Light Co was to have had the fire
plugs in working order at a date
previous to the present, but so far the
necessary repairs had not been made.
It was explained by alderman Hunter
that the connections  required  lo make
the repairs had not been received,
altho the orders had been placed some
lime ago. In consideration of this
circumstance the council decided to defer action in the matter.
The city clerk was instructed to write
property owners who have not paid
their taxes to the city that unless
prompt settlements were made action
would be taken by the citv solicitor to
recover the same. It is the intention of
the council to press the payment ol all
delinquent taxes, as the amount in
arrears now totals several thousand
The advisability of introducing a
peddler.s' and hawkers' license law
similar to that in vogue in Nelson was
mentioned by acting mayor Buckley.
He pointed out that there were many
peddlers working in and about Sandon
in direct competition with the local
merchants, who did not pay ;t fair
share of the city's taxes and he believed
that the Nelson law which provides for
a $250 license should be introduced.
No action was taken in the matter.
The city team was also a m;itter of
considerable discussion. This branch
of the city's business has been costing
the corporation on an average about
a hundred dollars a month over receipts
and the city has not derived an adequate
benefit therefrom, while private parties
have had considerable of the team's
services gratis. This practice alderman Crawford considered scaudalous,
and he suggested that Mr. Nye, who
is in charge of that department, be
asked to do the city scavenging for the
use of the team. This proposition will
be made to Mr. Nye.
Having transacted this much business, the council adjorned until Friday

Upon the whole, Australasia has done
well in maintaining its large gold production during the lirst half of the year.
The result, however, indicate! that 1900

that it is quite possible that the Trans-

There is no special reason  for this be

certain parts of this colony  have me
with much opposition, for reasons not

such operations may be problematical,

The Vancouver Province says: The
Sandon Paystreak is nothing if not
unique. It has now abandoned ordinary white "news print" for a lij;ht
blue paper on which its proprietor
announces it will he published hereafter. For the time being *>t least the
change will hardly be a popular one.
No one likes to be in doubt as to
whether it is a judgment summons or
a seidlitz powder that he is getting
when he asks for the paper. The
change is understood to have been
decided upon so that no one can consistently refer to the Paystreak as a yellow journal, even when it fades.
