The Appealed Votes.
Lip to the   time of going to press we
ve   not   been   able to  ascertain  just
it   course should be   persued by the
is whose votes have been protested.
e  law  is hazey  in   tbe. matter  and
rns to   imply   that  the parties   must
tear at   the court   of revision,   which
rse is manifestly impossible as there
several   hundred   living  some dis-
tance removed from Kaslo; The col
lector is evidently at sea in the matter
as he recommended employing a lawyer.
This would be equally absurd. The
course we would recommend is for
voters who have been protested against
to make affidavits before a Notary
Public and forward these to be presented at the court.
The probabilities are that the whole
objection will be upset, either on the
grounds of conspiracy or invalid notices.
The law provides that the name of the
objector should be placed on each notice
of objection. This has not been done
and the notices will probably be declared invalid. The names of all the
parties implicated in the affair have not
come out yet, but if a prosecution on
the grounds of conspiracy is commenced
against the conspirators one of the
dirtiest election games that has ever
conie to light in Canada will he shown
up. A year or two in the penitentiary
would provide these clever gentleman
an opportunity to refresh their intellects.
Go Slow Gentlemen.
Altho no motion to that effect has
appeared on the minutes of the city
council meetings the city solicitor has
been instructed to take action to prevent the Slocan Star and Ruth companies from clumping their tailings
into the creek. The council's contention is that the concentrate tailings
wear out the Hume and that the company should take care of their tailings
and not dump them into the creek.
In taking tliis matter up the city
council should be more than careful.
The prosper-!tv of Sandon depends more
on the Star than on any other mine.
The Star people are the most reasonable milling company that Sandon people have had lo deal with. The tailings
were running into the creek before
the Hume was built and the council at
the time they built the Hume were conversant with the fact that the tailings
were being dumped into the creek.
The Hume cost $15,000 in the first
place and a fraction of that keeps it in
repair. The Star pays out $7,500 a
month wages, almost all of which stays
right in Sandon. Co gently on this
question gentlemen until you find out
just where xou are at. Annoying mining companies is not the best way to
encourage the building and operation
of concentrators within the immediate
neighborhood of the city limits.
There was an organization meeting
of the football club in the Filbert on
Wednesday evening. The officers elected were: Management committee,
Byrori Cliffe, John Crawford, Andrew
Grierson; captain John Gusty; secretary
W. F. Lawson; vice-president Chas.
VValmslev; president Wm.   MacAdams.
John S. Gusty and W. F. Lawson
were chosen as'delegates to the meeting to be held in Sandon next week for
the purpose of forming a league. Sandon, Silverton and Kaslo will be the
three leaf combination which will compose the league.

[know  the  reason   why     This talk

while some of these silk stockings
prate about their honor and all
t, it is onlv their fear of being found
out that keeps them from being as
crooked as any longshoreman, provided
of course, that they need the money.
"A man can't have too squeamish a
regard for ethics or conscience if he is
going to play poker. If I see cheating
going on I merely declare myself in
If I see a dirty card thrown or catch a
man holding out, I think my proper
course would be to hum gently to myself and say, as il I were crooning a
lullaby, 'I want a slice of that. 1 think
I will have a slice of that, for the reason
that it is too good to pais up.'   Then
statistics to show the increase which
was taking place in exports, aud pointed
out that both tho Canadian Pacific Hail-
way and the Kettle River road were
wanted in the Boundary Creek region.
Walter Berwick, Toronto, made a
strong speech for the road, stating that
the company would accept the clause
prohibiting the export of ores from
Canada and also prohibiting the sale or
leasing of the road to the Canadian
Pacific Railway. Ross Robertson
strongly endorsed the bill.
T. ii   Shaughnessy. C. P. R., after
and that, begad, sah! I would tolerate
nothing of the sort in a game wherein
I was sitting-. What would he the result? The gambler would say I was
mistaken, the sucker would get sore
and say he had been robbed, and I
would get nothing for my share. What
would I do if the sucker was a friend of
mine, whom i had taken up to the
game? Such a case would never come
tip, for the reason that I never take a
friend to a poker game. I always go
up alone and come down alone. Poker
is no place for friendship. Damon and
Pythias would never have been heard
of if tiie two chums had ever sat down
to a game of draw.
"There are a good many ways of
turning a crooked card. Thecolddeek
is /airly successful, but it has to be done
hy an artist, and oven then it i.-i dangerous. Marked cards don't go with
spoils, for the decks are changed too
often when the stakes rre high. The
bust methods are stacking the cards
���ind holding out It takes a good man
to do the former, and there are times
when he falls down and gives his opponents more than he Intends to Holi'-
ing out is the easiest, for the reason
that the others always have to look out
for themselves and see what they hold
A good many sorts of mechanical devices have heen invented for holding
out, and 1 have seen some poker players who were, really walking pieces of
machinery The 'hug,' as it is called,
is the most frequently used, because it
is so simple. It is nothing hut an al
most Invisible slit at the edge of the
table, where cards can be slipped in
until they are wanted. JLis a dangerous thing to bump up against, and It
can be run hy a good man until further
orders without a show of detection.'���

the man who turned the -rick would be pointing out what ins company had
pretty apt to give me the wink; I would done already, said he did not object to
get a divvy for preserving the peace, j this road on the grounds of competition
"Now, I admit that I could trot up I but because he wanted a free hand in
and make a great roar. I could slam those districts so that he would be able

I was a Kentuckian and a gentleman,   reduce freight rates.   He could not do
so if another railway were let in there,
as he would have to make terms with
it as to rates. Tupper opposed the bill
on the grounds that the Canadian Pacific Railway should be considered.
Blah made a strong speech in favor
of the bill. He said that the time had
arrived when the committee should say
whether it was going to refuse any
charters southward. If ever it was intended to give railway connection to
the south, there would never be an
occasion when a more cogent reason
for doing so would be given than today.
He was amused at Shaughnessy's cry
for a free hand, if there was anything
in that argument it was that the. Canadian Pacific Railway should never have
heen allowed to exist, but that a free
hand should have been given to the
Grand Trunk Railway. What Shaughnessy feared from this road was competition, and he might as well admit it.
Despite this strong appeal, the bill
was defeated. There were thirty Liberals, six Conservatives and three Independents who voted for the bill.

of British Columbia.
There are two ways of reaching!linin-
eca. < Ine is via Asheroft and Quesnelle
and the other by the Skeena river. By
this latter route one has to travel 20o
miles over a trail. There is talk of constructing a wagon road via the Skeena
river route this summer. If this waggon
road is built it will be via Ha/elton to
Manson. Besides this, there is a bill
pending before the provincial legislature
for a charter for a railway which is to
be bnilt by tbe Skeena river route Mr.
Singlehurst and bis syndicate have been
interested in the mines iu the Omineca
country for the past three years, and he
came to Rossland for the purpose of securing eight or ten experienced quartz
miners who will be put to work developing some of the mining properties owned
by the syndicate.
When Silver Hanked Above Gold.
Saturday Evening Poet:���There was a
time in the history of the world when
silver had more value than gold. It was
the case in ancient Arabia, and also in
ancient Germany. The first reported
ratio after gold began to be considered
more valuable was 1 to 2, and through
the ages it has fluctuated, gradually rising, with few exceptions. In Kngland
during the twelfth century it was 1 to 9.
In France during the fourteenth century
gold and silver coins of like weight bore
the same value. Portugal in the seventeenth century was able to govern the
rate, and she fixed Ihe value of gold as
sixteen times that of silver. The nation
which first raised the 10 to 1 arrangement over three centuries ago is now
among those on a gold basis.
A Turkey Smoker.
Knocked Out Agnill.
The Canadian Pacific Railway put up
a red hot fight against the Kettle River
Valley Railway and the result was that
it was knocked out last Thursday in
the railway committee on a vote of 89
for to 82 against, a majority against of
II? The light which the C.P.R. put up
was not in committee but beforehand
On the other hand there was no pres-
suie behind the Kettle River scheme,
except what was done by its advocates

,altered in looking after the interests

it was in the interests of his constituents that the bill should pass.   He gave

an interesting statement. He says:���
"A man who will act in the dual capacity of Attorney-General of the Province
and legal adviser for a client when
authority and interest seemingly conflict, is not presumably a fit man to
control the destinies of the Province.
This occurred'first in the case of the
Sandon townsite, the crown grant to
which was obtained several vears ago,
under peculiar conditions, yet Joe
Martin, but one year ago, while drawing a Government salary of $4,000 per
annum, was retained by J. M. Harris,
the alleged owner of the townsite, and,
though knowing the imperfect nature
of the title, while acting as Attorney-
General, took no steps to recover the
Sandon townsite to the Province."

S. Arden Singlehurst, who represents
a New Vork syndicate in the Omineca
district, savs the syndicate which he represents h interested in gold and silver
quart}' locations and hydraulic propositions iu that section. It is a regiod that
has many rich mines. It is situated near
the 5Cth parallel of latitude, and is in
the drainage belt of the Peace river.
The area in which most of the mining
has taken place is about 50 miles in diameter. The mines are on the upper por-

Along in the night a large turkey
clinied from the ridge on the roof on Ole
Peterson's house to the top of the chimney and sat down so is to get the benefit
of the heat from the fire below. Early
in the morning Mrs Peterson and two
children sleeping in the room where the
hard coal stove was located were discovered to be deathly sick and the room
was full of gas. The turkey was soon discovered and driven off, but it took quite
a while for the sick to recover.

"Muldrum is the laziest man I
ever saw. He keeps a shoe store out in
our suburb, you know. While be was
resting the other day a man came in and
said he wanted to buy a pair of slippers.
What do you suppose happened? Muldrum said:
"Oh, come around some time when I
am standing up."

Chief Jarvis had his attention drawn
lo a curious case yesterday afternoon.
A Sandon man who is said to keep a
restaurant there reported to him that
he had left Sandon in the morning with
a woman whom he believed to be unmarried ahd w ho was to have accompanied him to the I t ites. lin route o
Nelson he committed his wad, consisting of $70 to her for safe keeping, but
on arriving here she was claimed by
another man who said he was her husband, and left with him, neg'eting lo
return the money. The question was
argued at some length bv the parties
and the Sandon man finally accepted
$40 in settlement. The trio did not
leave their names.
A   Parting   Word    From   Bob   and
To the Citizens of Sandon : We beg
in this public manner to extend lo the
citizens of Sandon our most sincere
thanks for the many kind expressions of
their goodwill and friendship during
our sojourn in the city, and we especially want to thank them for the tokens
of their esteem presented on the evening of our departing. With best wishes
for them all we beg to remain

������Bob" and "Charlie" are now well
on their way to the gold fields of Alaska
but they will be long remembered by
friends in Sandon, and the slight tokens
with which they were presented on their
departure are as nothing compared to
the luck which their Sandon friends
wish them in the regions of   the  north.
"And that is silver ore, is it?" said
an old lady, as she examined a curious
looking bit of mineral.
"Yes," said her husband.
"And how do thev gel the silver
oul ? "
"They smelt it."
"Well, that's queer," she said, applying her nose to the ore. " I smelt it,
too, but I didn't get anv silver."
