lat he had absolute!) no knowledge ol

had got the objection along with
fcwral hundred others from the office

fclieved that the objection was tilled

Mr. Cliffe was then vailed upon hut
refused tor a long time lo  he sworn

dot'   furnished     and    the    objections
puld have to he thrown out,    Finally,
make a test   case, as he said, Cliffe
*k   the oath   and   staled that   he had

ills   of   New    Denver.     He   had   no
rsonal  knowledge of the man, had
ver seen or heard of him before reiving the information from the parties
bntioned, did not know his present
hereabouts, had made no inquiries
id the only evidence he had to offer
Bat the man had left the   country   was
the   statements  of three   gentlemen,
whom he said he considered reliable.
He had met these gentlemen by appointment in New Denver and had
made arrangements for a large number
of objections against New Denver
voters. The ydid not make any statement imdei oath hut merely favored
him with the verbal information. In
the case of Adams he understood them
to say that the man had not heen in
New Denver for some time.
The collector held that, while there
might he good reasons for striking off
the name of Michael P. Adams, no
proof had heen furnished him that
Adams was either dead or left the Province, or that he was wo longer a British subject. If Mr. Cliffe or Mr. Cayzer
would swear lo any one of these three
things he would strike the name off,
Othewise it would have to he retained.
Cliffe then slated that he had equally
good proof thai 150 other, of whom he
held a list, should not he retained. He
cited the case of Harvey P. Atchison of
Slocan, who was supposed lo he ill
Dawson citV, This Was an unlucky
choice as Mr. Atchison was sitting
within a few feet of Mr. Clifie ill the
lime, and the collector was thereby
furnisheJ a case which amply justified
him in refusing 1 1 consider hearsay
evidence. Mr. Cliffe went on to argUC
thai there had heen a number of personations at the last elections.
As Mr. Cliffe had no personal knowledge and refused to swear further on
a\ix of the other cases the collector
Juled that the objections had not heen
proven and outside of the names ot

A district convention of the Liberals
is-.ailed for May 15th. to he held ill
Sandon. The intention is to place a
man in ihe field for the coming elections.
The choice of 11 candidate will be left lo
the convention.
Prank Fletcher, land agenl for the
C. P. K-, has heen nominated by the
Mine Owners Association conservatives
of Nelson to contest thai constituency
against John Houston. Fletcher has
heen supplied with a campaigh fund ol
$6,000 and will be supported by the
association people and the disgruntled
liberals who do not want to accept
Martin. Any old way to heat Houston
is the cry. Houston heal Fletcher lo
mavor of Nelson last New Years.
Smith Curtis, the Martin candidate,
has Mackintosh fated ill Rossland and
there is a rumor thai Makintosh will be
pulled off and some one put up who
would have a chance against Joe's
right-hand man.
Robt. F, Green, ex-Speaker Forsler
and Jim Martin, ex-M.P.P., of Rossland,* spent several hours in town on
Thursdav, going down to Three Forks
in the evening, Thev did not hold any
meeting in Sandon, but contented
themselves with meeting as many people as possible during the day.
The Liberals of Nelson have decided
not to run a candidate in that district
as teev prefer to keep their party intact
for llie Dominion elections next fall.
This makes it a straight case between
Houston and Fletcher.
Building operations are being rushed
on all sides since the lire. Already
nearly every business man in town has
secured some kind of a location in
which to re-open and canvas and tele-
along. The Dawson-like appearance
of the town, with windowless stores,
saloons under canvas, black-jack in the
street, etc, etc., does not seem to effect
the spirits of the community and every
one is going in for rebuilding with all
the energy possible.
The citizens and business men are
almost unanimous in declaring that a
re-survey of the townsite should be
made. The scheme is to run a 60-foot
street down the middle of the gulch,
using the Hume as a sewer and subway
for the water mains, electric light wires
and telephone and telegraph wires. All
effort will also be made to secure an
order-in-council to have the Torrens
Act invoked so th.u old que-lion of
title may be cleared up for good. At
present the whole mailer rests with J.
M. Harris, who is the heaviest holder
of real estate ill the town. He was in
Pittsburg on the night of the fire and
on receiving word of the disaster telegraphed $500 to the relief committee
and sent word that he would arrive in
Sandon Saturday (to-day). There is
every reason to believe that he will
consider favorably any scheme which
will insure a better arrangement of the
streets so that danger of another great
lire mav be averted and insurance may
be secured.
The scheme by which the real estate
will he handled'will he to secure the
appointment of a trustee to take over
the lots and issue script to the extent
their assessed value, which would stand
against the purchase price of the lots in
the new townsite. In a number o\
cases there will be little change in the
lots as it will be necessary only to
reverse the frontage.

tent alongside the tire proof warehouse.

former site of the Filbert cigar store.
The Filbert is under canvas at the old
location. G. VV. Grimmett has a small
building up and is doing business again
the same as usual. M. L. Grimmett
has opened a law office in C. M. Wilson's house, Cody ave. Chas. Gales's

out of business and Mrs. Broddy left
for the east on Wednesday. Messrs.

Sandilands, Stein Bros, and others are
camped on the K, & S. ground near
the depot. Robt. Cunning is rebuilding the Sandon   on the old site.     Dick
making an effort to re-establish themselves in some kind of tempory shelter.
No permanent buildings have been
commenced yet as the promised re-
survey is holding them back. In another week or ten days the building
boom will he on again and Sandon will
be built up like magic. There is no
surrender on the part of the citizens of
Sandon. Only a detci minatian to
guard against a recurrence of such a
disaster. Many who were well-to-do
last week lost all they had ill the lire
and are practically peunvless now, but
all are resolved to start over again.
Geo. Kau'8 Bodq Found.
The remain-, of Ceo. Kay, tailor,
who mysteriously disappeared from
Sandon on the 28th of March last were
discovered by P. J. Hickey and A. R.
Heyland last Wednesday morning. Mr.
Hickey and Mr. Heyland were looking
over some timber land near the site i^f
the new concentrator when they found
the corpse. The authorities were immediately notified and the remains
moved down to the cemetary, where
an inquest was held on Thursday. The
body was badly decomposed hut the
appearance and situation when found
left no room for doubt thai the deceased
had come to his death through exposure. He had been drinking heavily
during the few days previous lo his
death and on the morning on which he
disappeared had accidently taken a
quantity of ammonia instead of medicine, which no doubt hurried his death.
These facts were incorporated in the
verdict of the jury. A policy of $2,000
with the North American Life, in favor
of his wife who is now in Scotland,
was found on his person. He leaves a
wife and two children.
The Ioanhoe Tram.
The contract for the Ivanhoe tram
has been let to B. C. Ribbet. 11 will
be of the same pattern as the Last
Chance tram except that it will have
an automatic loader. The tram will
be 7,800 feet long with a drop of 2,(100
feet. The capacity will be 150 tons in
10 hours. There are no long spans
and towers will be placed every 400
feet. Work is lo be commenced on the
right of way immediately.
The Miners' Hospital has been reopened in the residence formerly occupied by W, W. Warner, on Cody Ave.
The house has been remodelled to
suit the new purpose.
The hospital is not a money-making
institution, and anything in the way of
a donation that would help to carry on
the good work would be thoroughly
appreciated by the management.

SANDON, B.C., MAV 12,  iqoo.
Thk platform manufacturers, who have worked three
shifts a day since the house was dissolved, have produced
some wonderful structures. Almost everything that we
don't want and quite a bunch of things that we do have
been incorporated in one or another of the numerous political menu cards that a gullible public is asked to masticate.
There is little left out. Household servants are to be imported from the overcrowded east bv the conservativer and
the $200 deposit is to be dispensed with by the socialistic
and evolutionary Joseph, while any planks not otherwhere
contained will be found in the platform of John Houston.
In fact, so complete has been the process of annexing strong
platforms to weak politicians that it is reported that a Nova
Scotia man who contemplated starting a platform factor)
in B. C. has abandoned the enterprise because there was
not materialenough left to fill the first order.
There are, however, one or two more or less important
matters which seem to have been entirely overlooked by the
platform mechanics. For instance, what would he against
a policy which looked to forming the different mining districts into properly organized municipalities, thus giving
the districts autonomy in place of the cumbersome and
wasteful system under which the administration and expenditures are now carried on ?
It needs no argument to prove the advantages of such
an autonomy. Everyone in the Slocan knows that only a
small percentage of the money which goes to the central
government from this district every year is ever returned.
The balance goes for parliament buildings or is lost in the
shuffle. The man who put ten cents into the missionary
fund and followed it with a dollar to pay the freight to the
land of the heathens probably learned his political economy
in British Columbia. An acquaintenship with the manner
in which the construction of public works is carried on in
this district shows little less foolish waste of public money.
For every dollar for which actual value is received in the
construction of public works about ten are needed to
make the expenditure.
The system usually followed is something like this :
A gang of political pluggers get up a petition for a road
to their own properties. Then some man whose pull is
sized up by the amount of noise he made at the last
election is started off for Victoria, supplied, if convenient,
with funds to buy booze for every M. P. P. whose vote on
expenditure can be regulated by his appetite for high-
priced tangleleg. If the money is furnished a few professional loafers are generally given the contract, and a
gang of men are started out on a long-winded shirking
contest. There does not appear to be anv regular grade
or set standard of workmanship, and there is seldom anything more than formality in taking the work off the
builders' hands. Usually any old bluff that thev can attach
a bill to goes. If the cash runs out before the construction
is completed the unfinished work lies in uselessness until
another grant is secured to complete it. If bv any chance
the amount approximated should happen to be in excess of
the requirements the overs would probably be spent in a
barbecue or a torch-light procession.
This district is patched all over with just such work as
this, and the country is gridironed  with   unfinished   trails

With the dissolution of the Legislative Assembly, the duty again dvolves
upon the elector! of the Sfecan Riding
Xo CQOCC a member to repre- eol them
in the Provincial legislature.
it i- mv intention to become a candidate at the forthcoming election and
with full confidence in the result I
respectfully solicit the siifferage-. of the
electors of the riding.
While I point with pardonable satisfaction lo the manner in which I hare
ciiser.ed the interest- of the RiJ'n.*
and -ought lo meet local req. iremen s
so far a- practicable,  I have earnestly
eildea*. ore J   to   forward    legislation   in
th_ interests oftl e entire Province, and
>u:h as would tend towards its material
Co tstant in attendance al the -cssii n*.
of the Legislature, I have been watchful that : e of mine should be
wanting measure beneficial to
mj - r the Province as ���
wh.'k nor h . neglectful o'thc
interests of Oh ��� ige earner, bet have
i 1 some degree a* least been instrumental in placing their demands
amongst the principles to be advocated
by  a great   political   party.       It is  well
p.* hap- that 1 shojld brief)) state some
of the principles which I hive advocated
aid shall continue to advocate until
thny are incorporated in Provincial
1. I am in favor of an equitable redistribution of the -.mn in tie Legislative .Wcmb'y, ha-cd generally upon
population, but with due re^r;rd to tiie
intere>ts and circumstance- of outlying
and more sparslev settleJ districts.
2. 1 shall advocate the government
cv.vner>hip of railways, and other public franchises SO far as may be practicable and a general enactment by which
companies desiring to construct railways may be incorporated without
special legislation, and that railways honnsed by the Province may be
under governmental control as to their
rates, and subject to purchase at government option.
1 shall do all in my power to as.-i-t
and support the advancement and development of the mining interests of
ihe Province upon which its prosperity
is so materially dependent.
4. I believe in the principle of the
e.ght-hour law and shall permit no
interference with this law as it stands,
and shall insist upon the retention of
the penally   clau>e.
5. 1 shall advocate a liberal expenditure upon trunk roaJs and trails in
the various districts of the Province,
believing that upon >uch expenditure
the development of the vast resource*-
of the country materially depends.
6. I shall advocate and if elected
assist in the enactment of laws for the
proper adjustment of disputes between
labor and capital by a well digested,
and equitably arranged system of compulsory arbitration.
7. 1 believe that Asiastic and other
cheap labor is detrimental to the best
interests of British Columbia. 1 shall
therefore, advocate its restrktion so far
as it may be intra vires of Provincial
Legislation, and shall assist in bringing
such pressure to bear upon the Feder.il
Government as may induce that government to assist in the work, and will
most   emphatically   insist that   no such
class of labor shall be employed upon
any public works undertaken hy the
Province or upon -uch works as are
subsidized bv, or in any w ay subject to
the control of the government,
8. I believe that the educational
system of the province may be materially improved, and shall give my
heartiest assistance in bringing it to
the highest state of efficiency by the
establishment nf Normal Kit-sob and
other instr-um,. ,: t- that may tend
to the accompli ti 1 .. nf that object.
q. 1 shall also advocate and aSMSl
the development of the agricultural
res 'iirces of the Province.
10 I believe that the moneys of the
Province    should    he   expended    upon
some bro.td an J general -y-tem which
would ensure the greatest amount ot
benefit loom such expenditure. In this
Ridim,' I have endeavored lo inaugurate such a system by having the work
upon roads ,-nd trails placed under
a responsible head, so that the appropriation nece���arilv inadequate under
existing circumstance* might he beneficial and economically expended.
