K. L. Chipman, assessor, collector
mining recorder was in town from
Kaslo on riiursdny and Friday gathering data for the assessment rolls which
must be completed by November 1st.
He finds il difficult to arrive at a basis
of value for personal property in San-
dor., as the stocks carried by local
merchants now will be much increased
hefore the 15th of January, when the
taxes are due. Anything that lax-
pavers can do to assist the assessor in
his work will be duly appreciated by
thai official, whose duties are onerous
under ordinary circumstances but are
more exacting on the present occasion
from the fact that this work which
should have been commenced on he
ist of Julv was not taken up until the
appointment was received by the present incumbent.
In the old workings of the Sovereign
a strike of six inches of steel galena
has been made.
Ihe Noble Five tram suspended
operations on Wednesday. The mill
will be shut down again as soon as the
bins are empty.
There are  12   men   working   at the

The tramway builders at the Ivanhoe
are now stringing the standing wires.
The wires are made in four sections
with the tension station half way up
the train. There will be 38 buckets
on the running rope, which will be
over 15,000 feet long.
The minister of mines has under
consideration ihe establishment of a
uniform code of signals for use in all
mines of ihe province. The present intention is to adopt ihe code used in the
mines of Montana, and gold commissioners have been instructed to receive
suggestions from mine managers in
connection with the matters.
Twelve men are employed at the
Red Fox taking out ore which is being
packed down to .McGuigan for shipment. The Red Fox is one of the
most difficult properties to handle in
the Slocan. Its situation is such that
it cm be operated lor only a short period during the summer season, as
snowslides make il to hazardous in
other seasons.
The reconstruction of the Last Chance
Irani has been completed and it was
started on Tuesday evening. The
crusher has heen put in place again
and is now working on ore shipped
down. Timber, supplies and material
are being shipped up and as soon as
arrangements are completed the force
at the mine will be increased.
The consummation of this deal marks
the close of negotiations which have
been pending for many months. The
Monitor is a developed property of
proven value from which large shipments have already been made, and as
it has been a dividend-payer from the
grass roots ihe purchasers are assured
a handsome return on their investment
The Legislature.
Fire at tho Icanhoe.
There was a disastrous tire at the
Ivanhoe mine on Tuesday morning by
which the bunk house and boarding
house were both destroyed. The tire
originated in the drying room and was
well underway before being noticed, so
lhal the men only had time lo get out
without saving their clothes or bedding.
Tents and temporary structures have
heen rigged up and work will be carried on without interruption. The reconstruction of Ihe buildings will not
lu- commenced until the tramway is
completed, when material can be
handled much more easily-
According to the government's program the house was to prorogue last
night. There was the usual rush
toward the latter end and a good deal
of more or less important business will
have to go over. Helmcken's bill providing an educational test for workmen
on works chartered by the provincial
government was amended so as to
make it apply to employees on the operation of the same. This bill was calculated lo prevent the employment of
Mongolians on railroad and government works.
Tatlow's bill, which was intended to
keep orientals out of the province was
amended so (hat it would not apply to
any immigrants against whom there-
was dominion legislation. This makes
the acl inoperative as applied to Chinese
but will operate against Japs. The acl
was passed but il is questionable
whether (he Governor General will give
il his signature as it may be conflicting
with the dominion government's policy.
Houston's water clauses acl, which
gives cities the right to acquire water
rights in the same manner that private
companies would, was passed at the
lost moment.
Formal Opening of the Hotel Reco.
The Monitor Bonded.
Acting tor the London syndicate
which he represents, Maurice Gintz-
bergerhas taken a bond on the Monitor
mine at Three Forks. The property-
will be re-opened immediately and will
he on the shipping list in the near
future. The terms 01 the bond are not
given out.
The ball on Thursday evening which
marked the formal opening of the Hotel
Reco was a success in every sense ol"
the word. Nearly 200 dancers gathered in the big hotel and tripped to the
strains of ihe Sandon orchestra until an
early hour. The house w.is gaily
decorated and brilliantly lighted U| -
stairs and down, presenting a gaudy
and festive appearance. The large
dining room makes an ideal dancing
hall, and it was crowded frcm the fast
to the last number on the program.
Supper was served to the large concourse of merrymakers in the dining
room and the viands produced did
credit to the house and the management.
Lord Kitchener will be almost prepared to affirm that DeWet and his

Greenwood, H.C.
Many years ago this land was set
apart for the once great .and powerful
Siwash tribe of Indians The tribe
has dwi'dled to such a degree that
one twentieth ol tlu land is sufficient
for their needs. Four years ago
Congress opened the lands for mininc
I purposes only and sir.ee then many
well paying mines have been operated there and numerous thriving
towns have Bprung int<* existence.
Among these are Bolster, Baker
Creek, Chcsaw and Republic. Republic Is a thriving town near the
Boundary line and well known as a
mining camp of great promise.
The opening of the Reservation
will take place on October 15th, and
from all accounts there will be plenty
of land for those who desire to take
up farms, etc. The Indians have
each been allotted a farm so that
their claims are forever satisfied,
His Directions a Trifle Indefinite,
Some time ago a well-to-do Mexican
wrote for several ready-made sui's to
a New Orleans merchant, and, to
insure a good tit, sent this description: "I am 42 years old, weigh 120
pounds, dark complexion, notary
public.*' Another worthy subject ot
President Diaz sent an order for
rather a curious outfit, which he said
was intended for his brother. It consisted of a black suit, with one white
shirt, black tie, collar, cuffs and a
pair of patent-leather shoes. The
day following its receipt a telegram
arrived, say ing: "Do not send things.
Brother is getting better." It turned
out afterward that the brother had
been seriously ill and the garments
were intended to array him for the
tomb. This upset the theory of one
ot the clerks, who had suggested that
maybe the brother was go in** to be
hanged and had been unexpectedly
reprieved. - New Orleans Times-
The Western Federation of Miners,
which indeed practically includes all
the miners west of the Missouri river,
at their recent annual convention in
Denver, enunciated the following set.
of principles:
The Western Federation of Miners
sends greetings: Impressed with the
righteousness of labor's cause, and
believing that beneficial reforms in
industrial conditions can be accomplished only through radical changes
in the present governmental institu
tions, we respectfully submit the following vital principles which we believe should receive the thoughtful
consideration ot all who toil and to
govern political affiliation of the
members of the Western Federation
of Miners.
We believe that the wage system
should be abolished, and the production of labor be distributed under the
cooperative plan.
We believe representative form of
government a fa I le.and regard direct
legislation as the first step n< cessary
to enforce legislative reforms, and
therefore demand the initiative and
referendum in making all laws, state
and municipal.
We regard public ownership and
operation of all the means of production and distribution as the logical
solution of the industrial problem, and
respectfully urge all working people
to give the subject the thoughtful
consideration its importance deserves.
We believe the time has arrived
when all labor unionists should study
and discuss economic and political
subjects with the view of supporting
the candidates for office best calcu-

When I was on earth I didn't believe
in Hell, for I had travelled in Kansas
and didn't think there could be iwo

riTH THK APPROACH of the dominion
elections the time has arrived for the people
of BritisH Columbia to see to it that thev are represented
in the next parliament. This province has never had the
right kind of men at the federal capital, and unless immediate action is taken the Pacific members in the next
house will be no more representative than British
Columbia's aggregation of freaks in the last. The constituency of Vale, Cariboo and Kootenav has been about
as poorly represented as it possibly could be While the
present member may be a very refined, educated, accomplished and high-principled gentleman, he has been as helpless as a wooden Indian , and, to paraphrase the Toronto
Telegram, "inherited wealth and purchased newspapers
have not provided a future for Hewitt Bostock in British
Columbia politics."
Bostock has declared his intention of withdrawing
from the political arena, and has notified every liberal
association thruout the Kootenay that he will not again
contest the riding. His successor will be chosen by the
liberal convention to be held in Revelstoke on September
5th. There seems to be no definite idea as to who the
nominee will be, but it is a matter of indifference to the
trreat mass of electors. No candidate running under the
auspices of the liberal party as we find it at Ottawa today
could command the confidence of the people. Laurier,
Tarte, Sifton & Co. have violated every principle, repudiated
every pledge and broken every promise on which they
were elected, and their four years' administration has been
one wild saturnalia of robbery, corruption and general all-
round rottenness from start to finish.
There is no reason to hope for anything better from
the conservative party, and to elect a candidate on that
ticket would be to endorse a new lease to the ^an_r who
exploited Canada for so many years under the able leadership of Tupper, Langevih, Connley, Larkin, McGreevey,
et al.
It is simply a matter of impossibility for an honest
man who hopes to better the conditions of the country to
affiliate with either of the old parties. Common honesty
is not to be found in the same street with professional
politicians. They are interested in the advancement and
maintenance of a social and economic system wich is
recognized by every thinker to be a monumental triumph
of injustice. All the laws which degrade labor, all the
enactments which create monopoly and centralize wealth,
all the statutes and privileges which make the exploitation
of the people possible are the work of the professional
politician. To place power in their hands is to abandon
self respect.
It is from the people themselves that a new and better
government must come. It is from the ranks that representatives must be chosen and it is by the votes of the
workingmen that these representatives must be elected.
The laboring classes have the controlling vote in the
constituency of Yale, Cariboo and Kootenay, and a labor
candidate should be elected to represent the inland empire
of British Columbia.
Action should be  taken   immediately  by every  labor
union in the Kootenav. The time is short. The campaign
is already on in every other part of Canada, and the announcement of the date of election is due almost any day.
A convention should be called in the immediate future and
a candidate who can command the respect of the electors
placed in the held. There should be no uncertainty of
purpose and no procrastination. The workingmen of this
great constituency need but to name their candidal now
and the fight is theirs. But they must act in the immediate
present. Once permit the professional the politicians to
get a lead in the field and they will divide the attention of the voters with their time-worn appeals to
prejudice and their hackneyed bias of partyism, and the
golden opportunity of organizing a solid labor party in tho
Kootenay will be gone beyond recall.
Thk People of Vancouver are evidently a trifle stuck
on royalty. On his return from the Klondike the governor-
general is to be given a blowout that will be sufficiently
gorgeous to make Minto tired and make Vancouver people
look like chumps. If folks were satisfied to regard Minto
and others of his class as hired men who are in no wav
different from other government employees except in point
of salary, it would be more pleasant for all parties concerned. Demonstrations to dignitaries are an expense to
the public and a bore to the dignitaries, and if Minto
could be candid and hold his job he would probably tell the
Vancouver people to save their money and spare him the
agony of being loaded with cheap fizz and cheaper compliments and being toted around behind a four-horse team like
Barnum's snake charmer ov the wild man from Borneo.
J, Roderick Robertson, who inherited wealth from
tlie same source as he derived his shortage of intellect, has
again obtruded himself into the publio gaze. This time
he is posing as a star actor in the drama now being pulled
off in Victoria. The plot was deep and well worked out,
It took J. Roderick manv moons \o become main push ot
the associated boards of trade of Kootenay. Supported b)
his hired man, Roderick Finlayson Tolmie, author of the
Tolmie uppercut, he has used the prestiage which attaches
itself to such an c*>fiice to secure the appointment of a commission to re-open the eight hour question and again yank
it into the political game. Some day an exasperated e
torate will take a shift off and prepare such men as J. R
crick for a coroner's inquest.
Collis P. Huntington, a plebian at birth and a
plutocrat at death, is now numbered among the good
American millionaires who underpaid heathen Chinamen to dedicate Christian churches. Collis should be
long remembered by the preachers and-Workingmen. He
broke every law of church and state and received his due
, reward therefore a position oi* honor on earth and a promise of Wings in kingdom come. He never overlooked an
opportunity to degrade his fellow men ov swindle the state,
and the requiems which resounded thru cathedral domes
from Hell Gate to Golden Gate are a modern guarantee
that the religion of Christ as exemplified in the Sermon on
the Mount is not forgotten   in our dav    and   not regarded.

Eoert-bodii Wondered Hot�� He Knew.
There are often  little trifles that were
better left unsaid
But are uttered in  an   unaffected way,
Which   reminds   me of  a   funny little
matter which occurred
At a fashionable ball the other day ;
The host   espied a   silk   embroidered
garter on the door,
And gaily dared   the  owner to declare,
When a jolly-looking fellow   said without the least concern :
"Oh, 1 know    it, it   belongs   to    Mrs.
Dare !"
Now wasn't that a silly tiling to say?
Wasn't it a silly tiling to do ?
It came as quite a starter
When he recognized that garter
For everybody wondered how he knew.
Now wasn't that a silly thing- to say ?
Wasn't it a silly thing to do ?
But they didn't hear till later,
That she goi them from his mater,
So evervhody   wondered   how he knew.
Thev were crowding round the baby at
a christening, after which
He was handed   round   for everyone to
And a   circumstance   which    somehow
seemed to   please the   people most
Was a dainty little dimple on his knee ;
Said Cousin Jack from Kaslo, who was
staying there just then :
"This   looks like   a   hereditary strain,
for isn't it   a funny thing   that just
in this respect
He's exactly like his elder sister Jane ?"
Now wasn't that a silly thing to say ?
Wasn't it a silly thing to do?
It was really worse than simple
When he talked ahout that dimple
For everybody wondered how he knew.
Yet he chanced lo see that dimple
While out bathing���ain' it simple ?
Hut evervhody wondered how he knew.
Folks were gazing at the very latest
painting at a sale,
Labeled "Beauty Unadorned" upon the
When a gentleman remarked to severa*
others standing by :
"It's not true���such perfect beauty
can't exist."
"Excuse me, sir," a gentleman remarked, "but you are wrong,
And if you like I'll het a case of fizz
That this painting here before you is
exactly true to life,
And represents the girl just as she is !"
Now wasn't that a silly thing to say ?
Wasn't it a silly thing to do ?
The ladies hlushed and wriggled,
And the men turned round and giggled
For everybody wondered how he knew,
Yet nothing could be quainter,
You see he was the painter,
Yet everybody wondered how he knew.
They were eagerly discussing different
reasons for divorce
At a dinner when a married man opined
That snoring loud on either side should
constitute a case,
For it   sufficed   to   drive   you off your

for which the selection of candidates
should be so carefully made. The
ordinary qualifications are not sufficient. Zeal alone will not do. He-
sides the passion for humanity, of
which every missionary should be
possessed, he should have in addition
the great virtues of intellectual sympathy, the power of appreciating
another's jiosition, the ability to see
the truth where it exists, the tact
which is unfailing. With such
qualities as these, the missionaries
may hope in time to overcome prejudice, make their position clear, and
win an acceptance for the great
message which they preach. In that
message only is China's salvation, for
in it alone are the promise and the
power to effect the moral regeneration

Aii article of profound Interest���
indeed, the most complete and satis
factory account yet publ'shed oi the
"Causes of Anti-Foreign Feeling in
China"���is contributed to the August
number ot the North American Review by Dr. Ucorgo B. Smyth, president of the Anglo-Chinese college i>t
Foochnw. The present disturbances
he attributes to the resentment felt | the justice <
entire empire. Batthecircumstnnces
which are responsible for the deep-
Beated hatred of the ���'foreign devils''
are varied, some being related to the
conduct of Europeans toward China
i" the past, and some arising out o\
influences that are at work today.
Dr. Smyth's aiticle should lx- read by
every one who is interested In the
Pro cm Chinese situation. From the
bitterness ol the prejudice against
,lu- missionaries, Dr. Smyth draws j |m'm
the following conclusion:

A correspondent in Great Britain
criticises the statement in "The Min
era! Industry," Volume II., page (V21,
to the effect that "It is desirable for
smelters to secure the ric'iest ore
possible, since the cost of production
is thereby reduced correspondingly,"
the purpose of that statement being
to show an advantage which American smelters have over the European
in the possession of a much higher
grade of ore. Our correspondent
points out that the same returning
charge being deducted from a rich
ore as a poor ore, for example, a 50
per cent, ore compared with a 25 per
cent, ore, and consequently his profit
ought to he twice as great. This
raises a rather complicated question
which it is dillicult to answer categorically. Our corre pondent is in
error, however, in assuming that the
cost of smelting a ton of poor ore is
the same as for a ton of rich ore.
Assuming that the ore is blende,
the lower it is in grade.the less is the
loss of weight in roasting, and the
greater the hulk of the ore because
of the higher percentage of gangue
of low specific gravity. Consequently
the lower the grade of the ore, the
less of it can be put in the same
volume ot retorts, and the greater the
cost of smelting, even if the percentage of iron and other injurious im-
puri ies have not increased with the
decrease in the zinc tenor of the ore.
Moreover, the percentage of zinc recovered will go down also with the
grade of the ore. The increased cost
and loss have to be covered by a
higher smelting charge.
Although the smelting charge
comes out of the miner.it is a mistake
to consider the smelter as independent oi the miner, their interests being
allied in obtaining the maximum
profit on the zinc contained in the ore
from the ground by the miner,
eon competitors
at profit.   It is,
therefore, contrary to the interests ot
both that fuel and labor should be
wasted on worthless gangue, and the
question should resolve itself into a
balance of costs and losses; that is,
whether the greater loss ot mineral
in making a high-grade concentrate
is offset by the saving in freight and
smelting, or vice versa. The company which operates both mines and
smelting works has to settle that
question, and although the independent smelter is nol confronted directly
by it, we fancv that in the long run
his business adjusts itself on the same
basis.���E. and M. Journal.
An important strike of a new lead is
reported on the Two Friends. It was
made in one of the lower workings and
was totally unexpected, as the ledge
did not appear in the upper tunnels. In
one of the stopes on the property a body
of ore four feet across has been encountered .
