MOLLY GIBSON SHUT DOWN.
Eastern Stockholders did not put up
For Decelopment.
Owing to an indisposition on the
part of eastern stockholders to put up
their share of the expense of development, the Mollie Gibson mine has been
shut down and the whole force laid off.
Bruce While, who has been in Sandon
for a few eays, returned to Nelson on
Thursday. He staled that he had received telegraphic assurance from the
e.istern people that sufficient funds to
pay the outstanding liabilities, which
consist principally of wages due the
miners employed, would be forwarded
immediately and a continuance of development operations arranged for.
The Mollie Gibson property is situated close to the Kokanee glacier,
which marks the divide between the
Kootenav and Slocan lakes. Il has the
greatest altitude of any active Slacan
property, being neurly 10,000 feet above
sea level. It was located in August,
'qb, by two prespectors named George
and Willie, and relocated a few days
later, on account of some irregularity
in slaking, by Callanan and Stewart.
During the winter of 'cjb-'cj^ Bruce
White and others bonded the George
and Willie title and an interesting three
sided lawsuit followed between ihe
hond holders, Col, Ray of Port .-\rthur,
who was George's grubstaker, and
Stewart and Callhnan. At an enormous
expense this litigation was settled
a little over a year ago, and since
that time development on what is considered one of the greatest silver-lead
prospects in British Columbia has been
carried on continuously. Access to the
property is gained via the Mollie Gibson landing on Kootenay lake, from
whence a twelve-mile wagon road was
completed about a year ago. Last fat]
Tin ariel tram was built to the property
and since then quite a large force has
been steadily employed on development
work.
During the development of the mine
two leads, known as the Aspen and
Florence veins, have been uncovered.
Last season the mine was giving large
returns, due to the ore taken from the
Aspen vein from the No. 3 tunnel.
The ore was of high grade. Work was
heing conducted in No. 4 tunnel when
the shut down occurred, and ore was
being taken from the Florence vein.
This was of a lower grade in silver and
contained a little larger per cent of lead.
The two veins are convergent and it is
presumed that at a lower depth they
run into one big vein. The Aspen was
in some places six feet in width and
widening with depth. A No. 5 tunnel
has been started to tap the ledge about
250 feet lower than the present workings.    At.   this  point,   engineers   who I
have examined the property think, the
two veins intersect and one large vein
exisls. The tunnel has been run too
feel and the vein could be reached in a
distance of another 300 feet.
If the necessary operating expenses
were advanced to complete the tunnel
it is belirved that returns from the ore
would defray all working expenses.
Noble Fice to Resume  Operations.
Preparations are being made to resume operations at the Noble Five
mine. It is the, intention to work thru
the Last Chance No. 3 tunnel. The
drift on the ledge in this tunnel has
been driven to the end line and it is the
intention to continue the work to prospect their ground. At present there is
difficulty in getting timber up the tunnel ��as the Last Chance and American
Boy are working the tram to its full
capacity on their own material.
HOCKEY AT REVELSTOKE.
Sandon Defeated bu a Score of Six
to Two.
Killed at tha Idaho.
Rod Cameron, foreman of the tramway for the Idaho Mines, met with a
fatal accident at Alamo on Wednesday
afternoon, He was working at the
lower end of the tram immediately
previous lo the accident and went up
the line a little way to start a car of ore
which had stopped while on the way
down. After starting the car he jumped on behind to ride to the terminus,
but when about a hundred yards from
the mill the cur jumped the track
again, going over a trestle 35 feet high
and taking Cameron with it. The
man was terribly lacerated by the fall
and medical assistance was telegraphed
for without delay. Dr. Powers left
Sandon by special engine and arrived
in Alamo within 25 minutes of the
accident. A special was held there to
remove the injured man to the New
Denver hospital if possible. A brief
examination, however, showed plainly
thai his case was hopeless and he died
within two hours.
Rod Cameron has been a resident of
the Slocan for several years. He worked as a blacksmith at the Ivanhoe,
R. IL Lee and other properties. He
leeves a wife and four children in poor
circumstances.
Storing Ore at the Whitetcater.
Being unable to renew their contracts
with the smelter companies on favorable terms, the Whitewater management is stacking the ore at the Whitewater, and now has nearly six hundred tons of sacked concentrates piled in
the vicinity of the K. & S track. The
The mine and the mill is working right
along, but shipments will not be made
until an equitable rate can be secured
from the smelter combine.
The Sandon hockey team went to
Revelstoke to give the athletes of the
railway town a whirl at the national
game. The Sandon aggregation represented, the best that the Slocan can
produce in the hockey line, but the
Revelstoke lads were too much for our
boys, and a score of six to two with the
majority on the wrong side is the best
that Sandon could bring home.
The rink at Revelstoke is a larger
and better sheet of ice than Sandon's
but the lights were very poor and Sandon boys, accustomed to good lights,
were at a disadvantage.
The puck was faced off at 8:20, and
(he first goal was scored for Revelstoke
in less than three miuutes by Macdonald, Revelstoke's star actor, who
played cover point in a most effectual
style. This gentleman has an imported
Winnipeg lift, and neatly threw the
disc into the Sandon goal again five
minutes later from a distance of a
hundred feet.
.After that there was a little playing
done and Birchell scored a goal for
Sandon in seventeen miuutes. The
Revelstoke audience was very appreciative and cheered everything, but the
goal umpires were thoroly incapable
and after three or four bad breaks the
referee disallowed their decisions and
switched umpires. In the next few
minutes Macdonald threw the puck into
the Sandon goal from somewhere over
in the dark and the score stood four to
one when half time was called.
The second half was about like the
first. ��� Eight minutes after hostilities
were resumed Grierson scored the second game for Sandon, and Revelstoke
got another counter five minutes later.
After that Revelstoke was on the defensive for fifteen minutes and Sandon
bombarded the goal from all directions,
but the Revelstoke goal keeper was a
veritable mosquito bar, and the
shots were a waste of time. Eight,
minutes before time was called Revelstoke scored the last goal, which made
the tally six to two.
The Sandon boys say that Revelstoke
is a very hospitable town and that their
visit in the particular of having a good
time, was a complete success.
The Nonpariel property, which is
located near the summit of the hill
across Seaton Creek from the Lucky
Jim slide, is being developed with "a
small force. Ore is being rawhided
to Bear Lake and a shipment will be
made in the near future.
The ice harvest on Bear Lake in now
in full swing and the tonnage per acre
is perfectly satisfactory. There should
be no shortage of ice next summer.

!s*
A Song of B. C.
The renegade son of a younger  branch
Came out to Vancouver to  buy a ranch
and his heart in his breast beat high.
Three hundred   sovereigns   had   he in
'gold.
An astrachan coat to confront  the cold,
And a glass in his dexter eye.    ���
He selected a farm   well   stocked with
grass,
Three   heifers, a   pig  and a flea-bitlcn
ass,
A bedstead and chairs of silk ;
The latest designs in mowing machines
A package of carrots and kidney beans,
And s treatise on "how to milk."
But somehow   things   from   the  stari
went wrong ;
The hens he picked   up   for   the veriest
song
Would do anything else but, lay.
The heifers seccumbed to a thing called
bloat,
The pig ate his astrachan overcoat,
And died on that selfsame day.
He sat him down with  his brain awhirl
And wrote to  his uncle, the noble earl,
A letter both strange and sad.
He said he was up  to his eyes in debts,
And the ass and a   packet of cigarettes
Were all in the world he had.
By return of post (he noble grim
Had penned his   laconic   reply to him :
"Dear nephew, it gives me joy
That tho of your riches   you   are bereft
You have a congenial companion left -
So stick to your pal my boy.''
Hotc the Water Came.
"Perhaps you can tell me," remark-
the exchange editor, making another
vicious lunge with the sheras at the
helpless paper he was dissecting, "perhaps you can tell me how the water
gets into the mellon ? "
"Blamed vine know," replied tlie
answer-to-correspondents mam.
" Wrong," rejoined the exchange ed-
ilor. "They plant the seeds in the
spring. *
And they didn't speak to each other
again until one of them wanted to
borrow a n. -itch'.
Mable���What   do  you   think.    You
know   my  dear boy is   playing   in   the
great hockey match?
Ethel -Yes, yes! Go on.
"Well, I have just had a wire from
him" (ecstacally). "What a sweet!
What a delicate attention! Just listen:
'Got my nose broken; got to get set.
Do vou prefer it Greek or Roman,
darling ? "

SANDON,   FEBRUARY   9,   iqoi.
The Sandon Water & Light Co.
has offered to supply the City of Sandon with nine arc lights at $10 per
light per month, and eleven fire
hydrants at $10 each per month.
These prices are reasonable and should
be accepted without delay. Sandon
has been without street lights for many
months and the darkness of its streets
has no doubt cost the business men in
loss of trade many times the cost of
the lights. The fire hydrants are an
absolute necessity. Without them no
insurance can be carried and the credit
of the city will be ruined. No one
wants another fire, and the sooner the
city council and the Sandon Water &
Light Company get down to business
the better for all concerned. The
Water & Lisrht Company's offer is
reasonable. It is up to Mayor Pitts
and the City Council to accept it.
The Kootenaian is shocked into
agonies of remorse because Sandon
held a winter carnival while the queen
was dead. With all due respect to her
deceased yet gracious majesty, we
believe that there is a great deal of
very bad taste and a large amount of
low grade hypocracy displayed in all
this hullabaloo about her death.
Everyone is sorry that the queen is
dead, but we regard with suspicion the
loyalty that declares itself in loudmouthed depreciations of the actions of
another. All the professional prayers
and public lamentations in the universe
are not as good an evidence of loyalty
to the empire as an undemonstrative
citizen's simple performance of duty
toward his own community. We are
willing to bet fourteen acres of union
jacks to half a gallon of sterilized odes
to King Edward that the man who
wrote that Kootenaian article hasn't
paid ten cents taxes since the diamond
jubilee.
Recent investigation of the coal
deposits at Blairmore in the Crow's
Nest Pass gives assurance that all the
coal in that region is not in the hands
of Jaffrey, Cox & Co. This is good
news to Kootenay, but it is of no advantage in the immediate present.
The scarcity of fuel in this district must
continue   for   many   months,   as   the
Blairmore people cannot commence
shipping heavily before installing
proper coal mining and coke making
machinery. In the meantime the
Great Northern is getting trom tour
to eight hundred tons of Crow's Nest
coal a day and the people of British
Columbia who gave the coal lands
away are shuffling along as best they
can on what is left over. It is comforting to know that by the accident ot
ignorance the B. C. legislature and the
Dominion parliament did not succeed
in giving all the coal lands to one
company. Sooner or later there will
be enuf coal mined to go round and we
will then have the privilege of buying
back by the ton what was given away
by counties. .
The   Vancouver   Province   has
been going quite extensively into the
railroad question recently, and it has
evolved some wonderful conclusions.
Here is the latest :
The unfairness of building government
railroads to compere with those already
built by private enterprise must be apparent. Worked out to its logical conclusion,
the government would similarly b_- entitled
to invade the field of any private enterprise
in the administration sif which there existed some grievance, real or fancied, and
with the resources sif the country behind
it could absolutely put private enterprise
out of business.
Now wouldn't that jar your anatomy. Here is the Vancouver Province
stating that private enterprise in railroads or anv other legitimate industry
could not compete with the government in the same line of business ; that
the government could actually put
private enterprise out of business.
This is a fatal admission for the Province. It has produced column after
column of logic to prove that the C.
P. R. is the real thing in the railway
line and now it comes along with the
statement that the government could
put private-owned railways out ot
business. Why, that's the fundamental principle of socialism and the
Province has dug up the very argument that socialists have been harping
away at for years. If private railways
and private enterprise cannot stand
against government ownership what in
thunder are we maintaining private
monopolies for anyway ? Or did it
ever occur   to the   Province that way ?
The greatest fear of socialism is
entertained by the private monopolists
who know that the Province is right.
Socialism in its most intense and practical form is what we want and we
want it soon.
the government, when it acquires those
roads, will put them up to lease to the
highest bidder, or rather to tiie company that will offer the lowest freight
rate to the great lakes. The bidders
will he the Great Northern, Northern
Pacific, Canadian Northern and Canadian Pacific.
While the Dominion has been in
the railway business for many years,
this Manitoba move is the first effort
to acquire railways on provincial
account and it will be watched with
interest by all parties concerned.
The railroads of Canada should
belong to the Dominion, but if the
federal government refuses to t-.ke
action to acquire control the provinces
must take the initiative. If Manitoba's
effort is successful other provinces will
follow and the Dominion parliament
will be forced into line. Government
ownership has passed the experimental
stage. It is now a live issue in politics
all over the Dominion.
Premier Dinsmiir's extended
eastern tour seems to have been conducted largely in the interests of Premier Dunsmuir. A neat little railwa\
charter or two with the usual bonus
attachment seem to have been the
main objects for which he and Attorney-General Eberts prose ected the
regions of Parliament Hill. Incidentally the Natal Act seems to have
been slightly in evidence, but only as
a side issue.
The spectacle of a railway promoter travelling in the disguise of a
provincial premier is coarse. If Dunsmuir wants to build railways with
government money he should quit
masquerading as the benificient, self-
denying, public-spirited premier of the
Province of British Columbia. If he
wants to be premier let him quit negotiating for opportunities to build railways on the Siftonian plan. He can'l
successfully Jeckyll and llvde a whole
Dominion.
So far as the Natal Act is concerned, Dunsmuir displays unpardonable weakness when he makes an unsolicited tour to Ottawa to assure M'
Laurier's government that British
Columbia has a right to make her own
laws. Dunsmuir should stand p-*1
until Laurier undertakes to cancel tlu
anti-Mongolian laws. Then it wi" ���*
time for a British Columbia delegation
to go to Ottawa on business.
The government of Manitoba intends purchasing the N >rthern Pacific
railway branches in the prairie province
for five million dollars.    It is said that
Mrs. Carrie Nation has adopted
a new style of temperance lecture i-1
Topeka, Kansas. If she carries it-n"
to a finish she will do more to reform
Kansas than all the platform speakers
in United States. Carrie is practical
it nothing else. THI*: PAYsTRKAK, SANDON, B. C, FEBRUARY 2,

CROW'S   NEST  COAL   COMPANY.
Output of the Enterprize for the
Year Just Ended and Prospects
for 1901.
While so much is being written about
Crow's Nest Coal it is interesting to
note that the output for 1900 was 230,-
377 tons of coal. This is a great showing for a new field which has been in
active operation less than two years.
The year 1901 will see the Crow's Nest
Company the largest producer of coal
in British Columbia.
The (irc'it Northern Railway has,
been getting 400 tons of coal a day for
some time from these mines and wants
to double the consumption. The following statement will show the importance to the Great Northern Railway
of a short line to the coal fields, for
which President J. J. Hill will ask for
charter at Ottawa next session:
"The present haulage of this coal to
reach Kalispell, .Montanna, is about
375 miles. In a direct line south from
the Crow's Nest Railway to Kalispell it
is only 110 miles, with a down grade
the entire distance. A line from Kalispell, up the Stillwater and Kootenay
valleys to the coal fields, will save a
haulage of over 265, and as the daily
supply will consist of at least two trains
of 20 cars, the yearly saving over this
route would be enormous."

Canada's alien labor law is a first
class fake, nothing in the gold brick
line being a circumstance to it. The
Slocan had a painful illustration of its
workings two years ago, showing how
completely this prohibitive law fails to
prohibit. And now Toronto has a taste
of it. Labor Officer Williams, who
is investigating charges against linns
in that city for alleged importations of
labor from the United States, says the
lawappliesonly to naturalized citizens of
the United States. A number of firms
have imported Hebrews from New
York who were unnaturalized, and
consequently the law does not reach
them.    Wouldn't that rasp you!
