The Christmas holidays were sad
ones for Mr. and Mrs. Eli Taylor, who
mourn the los., of their daughter Mina.
The funeral took place to the New

last and was attended by many friends

sudden sad demise.
Sends out Notice to that
Effect.
McGuigan Despatches.
Ore   shipments   from   here   for   the
month sii December were as follows:
Antoine,   32 tons;   Rambler,   ibb   tons;
Surprise, iN'_ ions.
The dance given by Mr. and Mrs. Jas.
Brown in the City Hall at McGuigan
on Christmas nighl was a decided success. Quite a number sif ladies from
Sandon, Three Forks and elsewhere
were present, and the merry jig went
On until dav light. The supper was an
elegant affair and showed that Mrs.
Brown knew what Christmas suppers
should be like.
The Ik-iiid refreshments were indulged in freely by the hoys as swearing off
time is close at hand.
Notice has been received by Slocan
mining companies to the effect that the
American Smelting & Refining Company will not make any further purchases of Slocan lead ore, and will
make no contracts for iqoi.
Whether this  is the  first step on the
part of the American  smelting trust to
extort a higher rale  from operators, or
whether  the case   is, as  the   combine
states,   that   there   is   more   lead ore
available   than   can   be   economically
handled by the trust,   is   the  question
which confronts  Slocan  mining   men.
It might also be due  to a  conflict  between the railways and the smeltermen.
At any rate, il  seems  that the  American market for Slocan lead ore  is to be
be compelled to smelt their own ore on
this side of the line, the action of the
combine will eventually result in a
great benefit to the district as a whole,
but the present outlook for several of
tbe large Slocan companies is not particularly cheerful.
What Mr. Daoid has to San.
Editor Paystreak,
SIR:
Recently citizens have been informed
that   at   the   approaching    municipal
election there would be an  effort made
to place new timber throughout  in our
municipal offices.    Since this statement
was given  out  we  notice   that Mayor
Pitls has not denied the statement that
he would run for mayor again, and it is
commented upon that one or two of the
members of the first  council are apparently interested that way themselves.
To many it appears strange that the
immediately closed, and  a  temporary I present mayor should seek office again,

shut down may follow.
This is the most serious situation that
has confronted  the   Slocan   mining industry for  many  months.    If the American   smelter   trust   intends   raising
rates it seems that they have the cinch,
and can charge pretty nearly what they
choose.    If, on the other hand they intend to persist in   refusing to purchase-
lead  ore it   may mean  a   partial  shut
down until such  time as  smelters are
built in Canada to handle the output.
At present the Trail smelter and the
Hall Mines sme'lter in Canada, and the
Selby and Everett smelters in L'nited
States are operating indepednent of the
American combine.
The Guggenheim smeller is also considered  an   independent   concern, but
this companv has  not  been a competitor for Slocan  ore for   over  two years,
and aside from purchases of St. Eugene
ore for shipment to Chili, is   not in the
market for Canadian ore at  any  price.
The Selby smelter   has   never demonstrated any anxiety for Slocan ore, and
the  combined  capacity   of   the   other
companies is insufficient to  handle the
output of the Slocan mines.
There is the alternative of shipping
round the Horn to Swansea, but returns
on such shipments would be delayed
several months and the distance to the
point where the lest would be made
would leave openings for irregularities
and consequent dis-satisfaction.
The probable effect of the American
combine's action will be to force the
construction by the mine owners themselves of a lead smelter somewhere in
ihe Kootenay. The matter was discussed in an informal manner at the
recent meeting of the Slver Lead Mine
Owners' Association in Nelson recently,
but no action was taken in the matter.
Should   the   Canadian   mine owners
considering that he  could  scarcely  be
persuaded   to   remain   in office   a few
months ago.    Surely he, with the original aldermen and first   mayor, should
be satisfied that they   lack   the  ahility
necessary to carry  out the  original  intentions of the  seekers  for  incorporation, which was to pay all city expenses
from the city  revenue  without  taxing
the citizens.    We   find  that   we  have
been heavily taxed each  year, and that
all the revenue, amounting to thousands
of dollars annually, has  been   used  in
paying salaries  principally,   and   some
sidewalk  improvements  is all we have-
to show for the immense sum of money
collected, the flume being  still unpaid.
Surely this should convince the original
members of the   first  council that they
were dismal failures.
Now, when Mr.   Pitts  undertook  to
change the old system and run matters
along different  lines,   he  succeeded no
better than his predecessors.    Altho he
cut olT the arc lights to lessen expenses,
and removed  the   nightwatchman   on
the grounds  of economy, we  expected
great things of him.    But, lo ! we find
Mr. Stubbs, father in law ofthe mayor,
appointed by the council as nightwatchman, and later on  we  find the  son of
Mr. Stubbs  employed  as  nightwatchman on the flume during  high  water.
This duty had previously been attended
to  bv  the   nightwatchman, and  altho
the council  could not afford arc  lights
yet it could afford  to pay   two men to
do the work which had previously been
done by   one ;   so  the   council   under
Mayor Pitts did not make  much of an
improvement on the old council.    Now,
when   the  present   mayor   and council
looks over  this  work  during  the past
term, surely they  will   admit   that the
citizens cannot have  any  great reason
to congratulate them on the manner in
which they have conducted the  affairs
of the city.

IN MEMORIUM.
MINA M. TAYLOR :
e
Died December 22nd, rgoo, aged 14
years, 10 months and 2K davs. Beloved daughter of Eli and Jennie
Taylor.
One more tender, frazil flower
Faded from our s'xght today,
Just asspring time's buds and blossoms
Ushered in the bloom of May.
She had lingered, fading .lowly,
Till the op'lllng ofthe day,
Mid its radiant,   dewy fragrance,
Her sweet spirit passed aw:iv.
We've sung her last sad requiunT,
Closed the eves that lost their sight
Eyes th.it beamed with love and beauty,
Eyes tha' shone with holy light.
Oh ! how many hearts will   miss thee,
Miss thy smile and gentle tone ;
Life's but emptiness and shadow
When the loved are lost and gone.
In the graveyard sin the upland
That overlooked an inland sea,
Where the tlowers bloom in  beauty,
Where the birds sing sweel and free,
In ihe grave \ e sadly laid he*,
At the quiet noonday time
And the thoughts that tilled our bosoms
Breathed   sif   prayers    and     faith
sublime.
She's itul dead ; she on!) sleepeth
Froi 1 ihe cares of earthly strife.
She'll arise more fair and perfect
To .1 grander, nobler life.
If we follow in her footsteps
We, too,   *iay the garb attain ;
Just beyond the   hitting river
Bloom's a life that's not in vain.

rich while they stay poor and the wealth of their country's
mines and forests is passed over their heads to foreigners.
But the people of Ontario will learn much in the meantime.
Subscription    -   -    -    -   $2.00 a year.

Ojterated in the Interest* of the Editor,
William MacAoams,
-    Publisher and Proprietor.
SANDON, B. C.,  DbXEMBKR 29,  1900.
There is an agitation among eastern papers to grant
Colonel Otter a bonus of $20,000 from the Dominion
treasury for his distinguished services in South Africa.
Man-killing is a profitable industry at this price, but the
services of the Colonel and his gang of fool Canadians in
supplying the Laurier government with old flag elixir and
loyalty speils should he cheap at twice the price.
Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, is just now experiencing
the delights of a first-class western boom. This sudden
burst of prosperity is due to the expenditure by Clergue
of Philadelphia and others of some three or four million
dollars in developing the Lake Superior country's resources.
This company is building water power plants, paper mills,
smelters, blast furnaces, ore docks, saw mills, machine
shops, etc., etc. It is* operating iron, nickel, sulphur,
copper and gold mines. It has built and operates a line of
railway into the heart of Ontario's greatest mineral reserve,
and it proposes to extend this line to James Bay. It operates steamers on the lakes and proposes building a fleet of
ships to carry the produce of its industries from Lake
Superior to Liverpool without change. Already there are
three thousand men on the payroll of the company and
newspaper report has it that this American syndicate
intends  to invest  $20,000,000 in Canada's natural wealth.
Here is proof, if any were necessary, that Canadians
do not realize the opportunities they have at hand to
harvest the crop of wealth sown by the lavish hand of
nature. While Toronto and Montreal millionaires go
about looking for farm mortgages and while our own* boys
trek like imbeciles to the United States in search of a
chance to work for wages, these foreigners step in and
take advantage of Canada's natural opportunities to the
fullest extent.
The Ontario sfovernment has dealt too liberally with
Clergue and his company. It has given them railway
charters without limit ; land grants, mining rights and
timber privileges without the proviso of usufruct, and it
has in several instances granted monopolies, soch as the
Sault Ste. Marie water power, which will some day become
burdensome and must eventually be purchased back by the
government to be operated in the public interests. But it
is doubtful if the Ontario government is altogether wrong.
The people of that agricultural province can not or will no{
see that they have the richest country out ot doors, and
unless some practical demonstration is afforded the latent
wealth of Ontario might lie unprospected uati] the crack of
doom while the granger element of its population squeezed
their coppers until the Queen's head winced and while
jthe fogey* financiers of those great and greedy cities of the
past handed down the tradition that mining is a_dangerous
gamble and not a legitimate industry.
Thousands of Canadians will find employment with
Clergue. Towns will spring up, trade develop, prospectors hurry into the wilderness and the country so
recently thot worthless become a hive of industsy. Many
Canadians will find a livelihood and a few Canadians may
become wealthy from the overflow, but the profits of the
labor of all this army of workmen will go out of the coun-
try to enrich   the  capitalists  of Philadelphia,
It may be many years before the people of Ontario
realize that they have cold-decked themselves while dealing
to Clergue. That, having staked him to the greatest
resources of their country, the best energies.of their citizens
are being  employed for  hireling's  wage to  make Clergue
We received in yesterdays mail a copy of the Presbyterian Review, with a request for a free puff. The Review
is a handsome, well-printed journal published in Toronto
in the interests of the Presbyterian church. As an advertising medium it should be first class. As a religion-promoter
it may be equally successful, but the fact of its publication
is an obvious  inconsistency.    If there  is  anything  in tlu-
m* <r O
fore-ordination, pre-destination theory, what is the Review
in the journalistic goose pasture for anyway ? There is
busted laggin' somewhere in a doctrine that argues that
people on this earth are following a trail blazed for them
by the hand of God before the wheels of creation commenced to oscillate, and at the same time builds churches,
employs exhorters and publishes Presbyterian Reviews to
change folks lives and thereby interfere with the pic-
destined, fore-ordained trend ofthe universe.
Premier Dunsmuir says that he will not permit the
B. C. government to become political ally and side-kicker
to the conservative part}*. Dunsmuir does not make any
pretensions as a politician, but he evidently knows where
he is at.
Kidnappers in Omaha the other day held up packer
Cudahay for $25,000 for the ransom of his son. Now
Cudahay is offering another aS25,ooo reward for an introduction to the kidnappers. The press dispatches do not
state what the millionaire proposes to do when he meets
the gentlemen, but it is hardly probable that a practical
business man with a thoro-going Omaha education like
Cudahay's would permit such transcendent genius to shuttle
along unrecognized. Tlie western meat packers and
stock-exchange sharks, of which society Cudahay is an
honored and respected member, have experimented with
almost every other line of extortion except kidnapping.
Cudahay possibly wants a copyright on the new system.
Big Bill Galliher has commenced to shuffle, lie
is using the Siftonian style of argument on the Mongolian
question. He insinuates that the prejudices of easterners
will have to be overcome before exclusion legislation can
be secured. If Galliher would follow the line of V. J. Dean
ofthe Kamloops Sentinel and other consistent supporters
of the government in demanding of the Ottawa moguls
that they do something at once he would bea much better
friend to his party. Waiting passively for eastern folks to
change their prejudices is like waiting for the mountains
to do a cake walk into the sea. 'Fhe party doing the
waiting is likely to become terribly deceased i'n the meantime.
Success is the realization   of the  estimate which  you
place upon yourself. THE PAYSTREAK, SANDON, B. C, DECEMBER, 29
Sandon Should Haoe a Garnioal.
Sandon curling and hockey enthusiasts should waste no time in arranging
for a winter carnival to be held in this
city. Nelson, Rossland and Revelstoke
will hold similar events at later dates,
and unless Sandon pulls its celebration
off without delay there is likely to be
difficulty in finding a day that will not
conflict with some other city's festivities. By arranging a hockey and
curling tournament to take place sometime during the latter half of January
should be possible to secure the
participation oj the Kaslo, Nelson,
Rossland Revelstoke and Greenwood
teams. Sandon has the rink now and
all that is required is a little push and
energy to secure for this town a winter
celebration such as has never been
known in these pans betore.
 m��	
The Christmas festivities in Sandon
were nothing to write home about.
Quite a number of the boys came down
from the hills and on Christmas eve for
a few hours the town assumed the old
mine-camp tone on which Sandon has
the Canadian copyright, but the occasion was not marked hy any diversion
worthy of note.
Whitewater Christmas Tree.
The Christmas tree entertainment at
Whitewater on Christmas eve was very
successful. All the children in town
were present besides the parents and a
number of miners. The iree was well
arranged and well loaded with gifts
from Santa Claus.
First came a program of songs,
choruses and recitations by the children. T. J. Barron of Sandon supplied
several numbers with his violin and
part of Ihe evening was taken up with
a magic lantern exhibition by Mr. A. K.
Stuart.
During the evening Rev. Mr. Ferguson was presented with an address and
purse of money from his congregation
at Whitewater in token of their goodwill and appreciation of his work.
Santa Claus pul in an appearance to
the great edification of the children,
and after a short speech distributed the
gifts from the tree.
Finally refreshments were served,
and offer a few familiar strains from
the violin the affair closed. All pronounced it one of the best social evenings ever held in Whitewater.
