CHAPTER 32

Oslo's Celebration.
Was a Warm   One   But
Sandon Lost on Eoeru
Turn.
rhe Kaslo celebration of the Queen's
rhty-second birthday was a howling
ccess. The weather was fine, the
iportunities to irrigate were numerous,
ul the events tame off with percision
ul harmony that could only be equall-
by ine regularity with which Sandon
st and Kaslo and Nelson won every-
|ng in sight.
rhere were just 153 Sandon visitors
Kaslo. The K. & S. in its usual
[businesslike man tier, had no special
vertised and no time set for a start,
it the train got off at 7:30 loaded from
e tiii-*s rods to the hurricane deck and
larry" let her out on the way down
the telegraph poles looked like a
toothed comb and the landscape
.(.-milled a cyclorama accentuated by
��� benign influence of Scotch and
ia.
A Kaslo the \ ang was waiting for
t Sandonites and as the hand march-
up the street the dynamite went ofl
the hillside and the whistles blew
til the whole tiling seemed like the
iefof Mat'eking or a political meeting
1 woman's sufferage camp.
"he Nelson crowd did not get 'n
...,l noon and the Kaslo and Sandon
ilk- enjoyed the interlude by discuss-
\g the temperance question and mak-
L imaginary bets on the booster's
nnd at the black jack counter.
Nelson sent up over five hundred
Litors and they all came for a good
me, the program was opened with
le sailing race, a Nelson and a Kaslo
vii \\vre engaged. There were no San-
.)n schooners in the race. A couple of
riderfeet bet two dollars on the race
ml placed the money in the PAYSTREAK
1.m's hands. Up to the time of going
> press it was still there. We have
leceeded in eluding the backer of the
[asKi   craft.
The 100-yard dash came off about
_ion, Nunn, of Nelson, taking 1st and
'ercy Wilkinson 2nd. In the 220-yard
tee Thompson, of Nelson, took 1st
jlid Nunn 2nd. It was a dark hour
pr Kaslo between twelve and one,
[hen the Darktown lire brigade gave
;n exhibition. Had the underwriters
���sociation been there Kaslo's insurance
[ould have been reduced to a mere
iominal consideration.
The hose reel contest was the big
vent of the day. Kaslo took first run,
pt away well, made .1 good run, caught
heir hydrant just right and goi water
p 29, 4-5 seconds. When the judges
[enl over the line of hose they found
Wo half turns short, which cost Kaslo
lie second each, making their time
11 4-5 seconds. Sandon boys felt elated,
tny thing over 30 seconds was easy tor
pen*. They made a good run, made
very connection slick and clean and
vere calling for water in 29 seconds.
jut there is many a slip in a hose race.
Die Kaslo hydrant had two unneces-
Iry turns on the stop cock and the
joys stopped turning before the full
jressure was on. Then the hose got
jvisted some way and the water did not
fet through as rapidly as it might have

,1 that has been seen in Kaslo   """W Company is  called tor the 2.
r    time.     Trail   has  a   good   ��*   Jm1e-
and when it finally got to the nozzle
the stopwatches showed 34 1-5seconds,
a clear loss of five seconds in getting
wafer.
After wrestling for half an hour in
a vain attempt to get a handout at some
of the dining rooms and lunch counters
the celebrators adjourned to the athletic
grounds up on the hill to see the rest of
the program played out. A baseball
game between Kaslo and Nelson was
advertised on the program, but to call
the exhibition put up baseball would
furnish Cap. Anson or Spalding with
grounds for a liabel suit. It was
simply rotten, and the management
should have cut it out and given the
perpetrators six months in a brewery
with a muzzle on.
The drilling contest was all right.
Only two teams, both from Sandon,
took part. Mcleod and Kingwood, the
Slocan Star team took first money,
putting their hole down 34^ inches in
the I5*ninutes. They would have
made a better showing had they not
broken through the rock, which forced
them to start another hole. Swanson
and Peterson got down 30 J_ inches
when time was called. They did the
prettiest changing that has ever been
done in this country, but their fourth
drill was slightly small, which spoiled
the hole.
The Trail and Kas'o football teams
lined up at 4-..>o and for 30 minuets
each way put up the prettiest game of
Association
for a long lime. trail lias a goi
team but the wind changed against
them when they changed ends and
Kaslo did them up to the extent of two
to nothing.
The running high jump went to
Gusty and Davidson, standing high
jump, O'Neil and Gusty, a tie; standing
broad jump, O'Neil 1st, Gusty 2nd;
running broad jump, Davidson 1st,
O'Neil 2nd; putting the shot, McLeod
1st, O'Neil 2nd.
A coupling c nite-at for gold and silver
medals was run alter supper, Morris
and McLean of Kaslo got the first and
Wilkinson and Typhers of Sandon
second.    Two other teams competed.
A tug of war between Kaslo and
Whitewater completed the days program. Kaslo had an easy thing of it
on the lug of war, which goes to prove
again that Kaslo has a strong pull.
While the Sandonites were waiting
for the train to start Jim Valance and
Charlie Hunter made the star play
of the dav. Summoning the fire brigade to the billiard room of the Kaslo
hotel. Jim made a few extemporaneous remarks in which he expressed
his admiration for the manner in which
the fire boys had done their work on
the epoch-marking morning of May 4th
and placed his thanks in maternal
language by handing W. Y. Lawson
a check from H. Byers' & Co. for $75
C. D. Hunter followed by expressing a
similar admiration and rounded off the
amount by placing $25 in the hands of
the manager of the team.
No one ever doubted lhat the Valance-
Byers cotrie or llie Hunter Bros, folks
were perfect gentlemen, hut these were
acts of nobler nature hardly expected
under the circumstances, and there was
excuse for the ejaculation of the boys,
"Let's irrigate."    They did it.
The trip home was a dream of perfect bliss, interspersed with such remarks from Gus as, "Tickets,  please,"
"Whitewater," "McGuigan," "Come
on here! wake up! Do you want me
to take you back to Kaslo ? "

The annual   meeting  of the Selkirk

and chief of the fire brigade, and has
taken a situation as book-keeper for th
Minnesota Silver Co. Mr. Sewell took
the finances of the city in hand at the
time of incorporation and has filled the
several offices ever since in a manner
that left no room for complaint.
The Silverton celebration, altho a
very successful affair, was not as great
an event as that of a year ago. This
was largely due to the fact that the
Sandon people, who went to Silverton
en masse last year, went lo Kaslo this
year. The football game was the main
feature of the Silverton program.
Trout Lake sent over a good team,
but it hai to t ike second p'ace 10 the
Silverton whirlwinds. The dahce in
the evening was the social event of the
season on Slocan lake.

stock of groceries and are in a position
to handle all kinds of business.
J. R. Cameron wishes to express his
thanks to the men who worked so hard
on the night of the lire to help him save
his property. As he does not know the
parties this is the only way he can
reach them, and only the press of other
matters has allowed him to defer so
long in expressing his gratitude.
Reciprociti* Working.
J. A. Whittier, manager of the Reciprocity, has let a contract for 125 feet

"Thought they were all right !"

" Don't think 1 ever met him."

The Kootenanian says: "John Keen wants to know
it* the government ownership oi railways plans includes
tracking over the Payne bluff."
This is about on a par with what the people of British
Columbia have been hearing tor the la*-: two months about
M rtin's railway policy, and John Keen, if he is proper!;.
reported, is neither more wise nor more witt) than his em-
bra \ o colleagues who are agitating governi ent railways
and simultaneously attacking the rail wav plank of Martii s
platform. \\"e are not a supporter of Joseph's in this campaign, but we believe that to thoughtful, far-seeing n
a little consideration of Martin's railway policy will recommend it a*> the sanest thing in his policy. In the first place,
Martin does not, and never did promise to parallel the Canadian Pacific. What he said was that it" the C. P. R. did
not give running rights the government road would have
to be continued trom Midway to Kootenay lake, thence to
the eastern boundary of the province. Follow thi> thi.,
through. For the first section, Midway to the lakes, the
C. P. R. is under no obligations and in all pr ility
the people would have to continue their line. Over the
Crow's Nest the case is different. Tne Dominion
government gave $3,000,000 in cash to the C. P. R. for
i Id ine this road, which no doubt built the road and'.-
profit to the promoters. With all their foil the Dominion Government was sane enough to secure a species of
running right*** over this road from Kootei iv lake to McLeod. The present Dominion Government is too weak to
. "ce this clau>e, but a general election is due within a
year and the changed sentiment of the I,*.*- ft r- years will
impel! the people of Canada to return a government less
subservant to the great monopoly. This . " -.cure f
the people of British Columbia running rights over this
road which was built with the people s m In Eastern
Manitoba and Western Ontario Mack- ie & Mann, si
partners of the C. P. R., are building the Rainv River
road from Port Arthur to Winnipeg. The people are paving tor this road also; and the Dominion government has
inserted a running-right clause which a stronger government might turn to advantage. In Ma a Hugh John's
government is getting ready to absorb the X. P. and to
extend it to South Western Manitoba. In the North West
Territories the people are agitating for provincial autonomy.
Their greatest objection to the territorial system is that
their railway legislation is not in their hands. Their first
acts as provincial governments would naturally be directed
against railway monopoly, and the natural sequence would
be a connecting line between the Bri:ish Columbia road on
the west and the Manitoba system on the east, which would
give the people of the prairie provinces access to the Pacific
coast on the one hand and the Great L tkes on the other.
The Intercolonial is already in Montreal and the
pressure of public opinion will force the next Dominion gov-
er ment to coutinue it to Georgian Bav within the next five
years. The completion of the St. Lawrence waterway svstem
and the opening of the Panama or Nicaragua canal would in
conjunction with such a system, be the realization of the
dream of Western Canadians. The possibilities are stap-
gering in their magnitude.
It will be contended by many that such a r
divided  into so manv   sections,   would  not be succ't

TO THE ELECTORS
Of the Slocan Riding of West
Kootenay.
GENTLEMEN:
With the divsolulion of the Legislative As��aeniblv, the dutv a-^ain dvolve*
upon the elector> of the Slocan Riding
to chose a member to represent them
ill the Provincial Legislature.
It is mv intention to become a candidate at the forthcoming election and
with   full    confidence    in   the   result    I
rc**pectfiilh solicit the mttfermget of the
.lectors of the riding.
While 1 point with pardonable satisfaction to the manner in which I have
conserved the interests of the Riding
and sought lo meet local requirements
s<> far as practicable, I bsve earnestly
endeavored to forward legislation in
the interests of the entire Province, and
-jch as would tend towards its material
development.
Constant in attendance at the sessions
of the Legislature. 1 have been watchful that no vote of mine should be
wanting for any measure beneficial to
my constituents, or the Province ns ������
whole; nor have I been neglectful of the
interests of the w-ijje earner, but have
in some degree at least been instrumental in placing their demands
amongst the principles to be advocated
by a great political party. It is well
perhaps that 1 should briefly state some
of the principles which 1 have advocated
and shall continue to advocate until
thny are incorporated in Provincial
Legislation.
1, I am in favor of an equitable redistribution of the seats in the Legislative Assembly, based generally upon
population, but with due regard to the
interests and circumstances of outlying
and more sparsley settled districts.
2. I shall advocate the government
ownership of railwa\s, 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 legislotion, and that railways honnsed by the Province may be
under governmental control as to their
rates, and subject to purchase at government option.
I shall do all in my power to assist
and support the advancement and development of the mining interests of
the Province upon which its prosperity
is so materially dependent.
4. 1 believe in the principle of the
eight-hour law and shall permit no
interference with this law as it stands,
and shall insist upon the retention of
the penalty clause.
5. 1 shall advocate a liberal expenditure upon trunk roads and trails in
the various districts of the Province,
believing that upon such expenditure
the development of the vast resources
of the country materially depends.
o. 1 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. I shall
therefore, advocate its restriction so far
ar it may be intra vires of Provincial
Legislation, and shall assist in bringing
such pressure to bear upon the Federal
Government as may induce that government to assist in the work, and will
mc s: emphatically insist that no such
class of labor shall be  employed  upon

heartiest assistance in bringing it to
the highest slate of efficiency b) the
establishment of Normal schools and
other instrumentalities that mav tend
to the accomplishment of that object.

the   development   of  the   agricultural
resources of the Province.
to 1 believe that the moneys of the
Provtoce should K* expended upon
some broad and general system which
would ensure the greatest amount of
benefit foom such expenditure. In this
RiJing I have endeavored to inaugurate such a system by having the work
upon roads and trails placed under
a responsible head, so that the appropriation necessarily inadequate under
existing circumstances might be bene-
fictal and economically expended.

been freely considered by tlie Conservatives of Slocan.
My political creed is so well known by those who have dealt with me during the last six years as Mining Recorder
thai it would be superfluous to say anything aboul it were it no1 for the number of new residents in the Riding who do nol know
me so well, and for their sakes it will perhaps be well tosel it out:

In view of the great loss ���rhtdh Mr.
Harri?- has sustained, hi- statement
might be excused if the brigade consisted of paid members. This wa- not
the case. On tbe contrary half a dozen
member- lost everything they possessed
endeavoring to perform their duty
whilst if thev had deserted the posts
which they had voluntarily assumed,
for only a Jew moments, thev might
have saved everything, and tbe morning
would not have found them a- it did

but if so have paid for them just as
severely as Mr. Harris, and Mr. Han -

chooses, it is a mr-uter of indifference to
me, but 1 do not intend 10 stand quieth

members of a volunteer brigade **rl_o
risked their lives and lost their aS that
night in attempting what proved tc r>.
an impossible task. 1 am borne out by
every unprejudiced man in Sandon
present at tbe fire when 1 say that Mr.

entirely uncalled for and in the a rsl
