enjoyable music which appeals to all,
leaving the agonizing classics to artists
with more assurance and less ability.
The Wilkinson-Leedham mill down
at the Central Music Hall last Saturday
night was not flushed as the police
stopped it at the commencement of the
tenth round. The scrap was uninteresting until the ninth round, when it
warmed up a little. Leedham had the
best of il when the tight was called off.
Leedham has challenged any man in
the Slocan. not over 1(15 pounds, to
light ten rounds for $500a side. Some
of the local spoils are trying to rib up
another match.
Politicians Politicianized.
The Anti-Labor People in a Conspiracy to Deprioe Worhingmen of
Their Votes.
Mr- Cliffe and the gang he represents
are engaged in a conspiracy to deprive
the miners of their votes at the next
election. Nine hundred appeals have
been entered at the recorder's office in
Kaslo, and a wholesale attempt at disfranchisement will be made.
The political pot is beginning to .sizzle and with each bubble of rumor
another candidate bobs up in the free
soup for common talk.
In Kaslo there are not enough left
after the candidates are taken out to
sign nomination paper for those who
want to run, G. O. Huchannan, the old
warhorse of the Royal Templars, is the
most persistence and incorrigible candidate they have in Kaslo. CJ. O, has
been a politician ever since he quit the
temperance stump and the disease is
thoroughly developed in him. His
particular line this time is an antipathy
to Joe Martin and a fear that someone
will do something socialistic. He will
probably run on his merits in this campaign. He was defeated on a similar
platform once before when he was not
so well known.
George Kane is another Kaslo man
who is willing to save this country if
someone will only elect him. George
slaked the townsite of Kaslo eight
years ago and he hasn't done anything
since. He should make a dark horse-
as no one knows him out side of his
own town.
Then there is Mayor McAnn. He is
a lawyer who is willing to run as a
working man's candidate. He is
maVor of the town of Kaslo, a conservative who.-endorses the Martin platform, is not in the employ of the asso-
iation, had a scrap with Hob Irving
last winter, and does not preside over
the mourner's bench of the Kaslo Hoard
of Tradet Some fellow by the name of
Sutherland, who is official mourner for
the anti-eight-hour maniacs is also an
aspirant and there are a number of
other candidates in Kaslo but to
enumerate them all would necessitate a
combination of the voters' lists and the
In Sandon there is Mr. Cliffe. He
is willing to sacrifice himself as a commercial candidate and will sign his own
paper or do anything reasonable to get
a nomination. He can talk longer and
say less than any other man in the
camp and has the gaul of the very
devil himself when it comes to a case
of politics. Mr. Cliff has heen looking
for a nomination for 40 years and his
case is now cronic. He should be a
terrible example to young men who
contemplate becoming politicians.
New Denver has also several politicians. Arnold E. Fauquier is One of
the most ambitious candidates. He
should run on the Turner ticket as he
will turn any kind of a trick that there
is a dollar in. He drinks Scotch and
Soda in a long glaws, treats the boys
and gives the linger to the bar keep.
His assets are con-talk, an antipathy to
the eight-hour law, and an idea that he
has a drag.
Billy Tomlinson is also in it, but not
very strong. Billy is slightly enamored
with his own individuality and had a
dream once that he was popular. He
is also diplomatic enough to conceal his
ideas if he hasany.and was never known
to express an opinion that would lead to
an argument.
In Silverton they have "Honest Bill"
Hunter. We don't know anything
against Bill's character except the
Silverton joshers call him " Honest
Bill." Bill has been in Silverton forquite
a while  -long enough to know better���
and he has the candidacetis so bad
that he staked a paper nearly two years
ago and hasn't had savey enough to
get out of it yet. Bill is a soap box

Star to Start Up.
Preparations are underway lor reopening the Slocan Star at an early
date. The Cody creek flume has been
so badly damaged by slides that no
attempt will be made to repair it until
the snow goes off and it can be reached
more conveniently. The water supply
for the concentrator must therefore be
gotten from the Sandon and White
creek Humes, both for washing and for
power. If the present mild weather
continues these Aumesshould be running
in a few days, when a full force will be
put on.
The Star mine is in better shape now
than ever before in its history. With the
exception of a short run last spring,
very little stuping has been done for
two years, and the amount of development work done places it is the very
front rank of British Columbia properties. The ore insight can be estimated
only in the hundreds of thousands and
the possible output during the coming
summer will be limited only by the
capacity of the mill.
The Star employs 100 men when
working full handed, and the employment of this force will pick up nearly
all the idle men in camp.
Scott Macdonald Dead.
Seott Macdonald, well known to
people of the Slocan, died in Spokane
on Wednesday afternoon.
Scott Macdonal was one of the
owners in the Payne mine with Hage
and McCune, and was afterwards in
the Last Chance company. About
two years ago he sold out his Slocan
holdings and went south for his health.
Since then he ' as been failing steadily,
a victim of pnsumption. He was
very success in his mining operations and his wealth is estimated at
over half a million Ward Macdonald,
his brother, left for Spokane on Thursday evening to attend the funeral.
Silcerton is in the Celebration Business A.qain.
The citizens of Silverton are nothing
if not enterprising. Hearing that Kaslo
was going to celebrate thev decided to
get a hustle on��u . >n Cnesday evening
a meeting w held at which it was
unanimously le 'ded that Silverton
should ' tve die mr celebration of the
empire on the h eeriljs Birthday, and
arrangements made t^start it off right.
The committee has already asked the
Sandon band for an option on their
services for the 24th.
Miss Sophia Funk has joined the
staff at the Miners' Hospital.
The hospital is now almost vacant

its want of comprehension of the sentiments and motives which govern
men, that it has never been able to
enter into the feeling which the Irish
have for their past history and its associations. Ireland itself���its groat
past, of learning, piety, poetry, chivalry and devotion to tthe old blood-
England has never been able to understand.
" Hence no offer has ever been made
on the part of the sovereign, or of the
royal princes, much less of the English
ministers, to sentiments of hereditary
affectio-i and loyalty which still linger
in the Irish heart for its old dynasties
and old ' blood.'
"The Queen, for example, is of the
old Irish royal strain.   She is not only
a Guelph and a Stuart, she is one of
the  royal   O'Connors.   The last  Irish
sovereign of the whole island was Rod
erlck O'connor.   His sons were slain.
His daughter married Hugo de Lacy.
Their daughter married a De Burgh,
Earl of Ulster; from them descended
Ellon,  wife of Robert Bruce, King of
Scotland.     (Curiously    enough,     the
mother of Robert Bruce was a descendant  of Roderick  O'Connor, the last of
the great kings, a supremo monarch of
Ireland)      The     grand-daughter     of
Robert  Bruce, the  Princess  Margery,
married   the   Lord   High   Steward  of
Scotland, and through her the Stuarts
claimed   tho   Scottish   crown.     From
thence it is easy to trace how the royal
blood of Ireland, Scotland and England
meetfl  in the person of the reigning
Queen Victoria.
" I venture the statement that if tho
Queen on ariiving in Dublin were to
say: ' I come not only as the. Queen of
England, but as a (laughter of the old
Irish monarchs, constitutionally representing them, and appealing as a
daughter of the last of the royal (('Connors to my kinsmen and subjects, there
would be a shout of Irish loyalty and
chivalry which has never boon heard
since the days of Tara.

solution of ammoniated copper oxide,
which transmits only blue or violet

light and the cultivated spores, the
spores are seen to react, just as they

they do not react at all to light which

What appears to be something in the
nature of a revival of the old " blue
glass cure," which attracted a great
deal of attention all over the world
some years ago, is the now method of
treating diseases which is now being1
exploited by Dr. Mount-Bloyer of New
Vork. The following description is
taken from a paper recently read by
him in that city:
"Pure air, sunlight and concentrated
electric light will improve any case of
tuberculosis, j should say the best
thing a man dying of tuberculosis can
do is to buy an old greenhouse, put some
blue glass in the roof and walk around
naked in the sunlight. But even this
treatment can be improved upon.

words, it is possible to operate on his

Light is inimical to the development
of the harmful organisms. The action
of light entirely destroys the bacteria
or reduces them to a condition of torpidity which they require months to
overcome. A 22,000 candle-power light
has been built for the doctor with which

SAXDOX,  B.C.,  APRIL 7,  igoo.
WlIBJi the opponents of Joseph Martin rise to remark
that he is a failure, and while Martins enemies predict a
political cremation on the 15th of June, a careful analysis
of the statements does not furnish conclusive evidence that
the object of their scorn is the complete failure that Martin's
detractors would have us believe.
We have been told that he is a self-seeker, a demagogue, a political freebooter and a vindictive, quarrelsome,
inconsistent man.
Admitting these allegations, what do we find? We
find that as a self-seeker and a demagogue, Joe Martin has
framed a platform that is the most progressive ever presented to any electorate in Canada. We find him, as a
political freebooter, making political capital out of the
Crow's Xest Pass coal grab. His vindictiveness, quarrelsomeness and inconsistency are responsible for his position
as an opponent of the present Liberal administration at
Ottawa, of which he was once a member; responsible for
his opposition to the late Greenway government, of which
he was the chief architect, and responsible for his antagonism to the late B. C. administration, of which he was the
builder and the wrecker within the short space of a few
We have been told that Martin's platform is impracticable and impossible, and that it is constructed for election
purposes only. Admitting that it is. Suppose, for instance, that joe Martin is a liar when he says he will build
government railroads ; does this prove that Mr. Turner is
right in his contention that it would be absurd to trv to
borrow ten or fifteen million dollars to build government
roads ? Does it prove that the same resources on which
the Turner government would have borrowed five million to
give away to subsidy sharks could not be made security for
ten million with which to construct public railways that
would be a one hundred per cent, asset ?
Or does it prove Carter-Cotton's contention that, while
the country is being robbed, industry is being throtled and
legislatures are becoming more and more corrupted bv the
railroad influence : while the shackles of monopoly are
being closer riveted by each succeeding administration, that
the time is not opportune for the government to settle this
question once and for all by going into the railroad business
itself ?
Or yet again, is Charles Wilson's antagonism to Joseph
Martin actuated by an eagerness to outrival Martin's pro-
gressiveness by following the platform laid down
by the Xew Westminster convention, which declares
unhesitatingly that this province should build, equip
and operate railroads for the good of the public?
Or even yet, are we to believe that it is a fear that the
dear public will be buncoed by hollow promises that prompts
the subservient and corporation-ridden Liberal machine to
scoff and scorn Martin's railroad policy?
Or yet once again, is the open and avowed opposition
of the railroad magnate consistent with their declarations
that Martin's schemes are in nowise alarming to the men
who hold the governments of Canada in the hollow of their
hand ?
With the doubt which these interrogations may bring,
are we safe in assuming that the  opposition  which" Martin
has engendered in the government at   Ottawa is   ���      ^
creditable than detractive ?   Is the enmity 0. the mfantousr
rotten and incapable  "machine   no:   a   valuable       ... Ku

self-seeking politician, or does it prove a dishonest; ol f
nose in a public man to he opposed by the charlatans, s\w
phantsand sybriates which partyism in politics and privilege
of class selects as leaders in Canadian public life ?
Or are we anv more safe in assuming that the aid which
Martin lent in defeating the Greenway government was
misd:rected ? Have the disclosure- o; corrupt tra - tctions
and secret agreements which have retired t>e late M mitoha
government to ignominious political oblivion proved that
Greenway's colleagues profited by deviating from the policy
to .which "Fighting Joe" staked them to twelve yearsago.'
Or again, to come close to home, are Carter-Cotton's
allegations that Jaffrey & Cox would have done incalculable
injury to the Kootenays unless forthwith given      . :l tar to
the untold millions of coal lands not   weakened bj 1   it ven
threat?    Did not  the  threats of J iffrey ev Cox to s ispend
operation on the coal lands seem   to  i idicate   thai tl ,\ felt
less assured of their success in the c   irts I 1 in Mr. Cotton,
who turned them over the title?    Or :; Carter-Cotton's contention be correct that Martin did no: submit  all   the facts
when he sought advice from Haldane, Osier and R
as to the legal obligations oi the province in this m il
no: Cotton shon unpardonable weakness in   not sub     ���
these further facts himself and proving beyond  the shadow
of a doubt that the province could  1      escape fi ling
over these lands, out  oi which it      is   been   s**        : h\

measure does this uncouth and undiplomatic personality
mike him less desirable than others who have all his private
vices and none of his public  virtues ?
We do not profess to be an admirer o: Martin, and vt
see no redeeming features in the course which he persuedto
oust his enemies and place himself in control of the ;it4. 5
of the affairs of the province, but we do say without compunction that the time has arrive.* for his oppone its

Everything conceivable is being
done by capital to prove that the
eight hour law is detrimental to the
mining interests of the province.
The newspapers of the mining districts, which have the courage to express their convictions, are being
coerced at every turn by parties
working in the interests of capital,
the aim being to force all newspapers
into line to demand the repeal of the
eight hour law. The attempt will
fail because of two reasons. In tie
first place the newspapers that have
any influence will not submit to
coercion, and those that are decrying
the law and abusing the mine workers are ot no influence and their
efforts can have no effect; secondly,
if it were possible to repeal the law,
the mine workers and  the laboring
men; that they spent more time in
saloons than when working 10 hours
and that they were lacking in ambition. In this connection it can be
stated that B. C. Chambers of Salt
Lake, Utah, who has been superintendent of the Ontario and Daly
mines at Park City, in that state, for
over 20 years, says that he would
not return to the 10 hour system now
that he has given the eight-hour day
a fair trial. He says that the men
take more interest   in  their  work;
that they are better morally, mentally and physically.
So far as the Nelson district is concerned, the Nelson Miner says the
troubles between the miners and the
mine owners is at an end. The pickets
placed by the miners on the Athabasca
and Granite and Poormau roads were
called off on Sunday, and Monday mom*

would be renewed. It is therefore
to the interest of all to leave; the
question alone and allow the question
of wages to be adjusted by the managers and mine workers.
In this   connection,   the   claim  is
made by Haul Johnson, who is working in the interest if the mine owners,
that the miners of H. C. are drawing
higher wages than mine  workers in
any other section of America.    Mr.
Johnson recently made a trip through

are not at all similar to those that pre

on the subject of wages from Mr. Ox-
nam.  general  superintendent of the
mines owned  by Captain  DcLamar
In the several states in the union. To
the   Nelson   Tribune   Mr.   Johnson
said   that  tho   DeLnmar company
employ8 about 2.000 men in its mines
and redaction wi rks.   The average
wage to miners paid by the company
in California, was $2 20 per day, with
a charge ol $19 per month for board.
In Leadville, Colo., the company paid
$2.50 to $3 per 10 hour shift,  $3 in
wet places and $2.50 in dry places.
It. the state ot Nevada the DeLnmar
company  paid   $3   a   shift,   with a
charge of $24 a month for board.    In
Arizona the   company paid $3 and
$8.60 for 10   hours'   work,   with   a
charge of $26 a month for board.    In
the state of Utah,   where  an  eight
hour law is in force, the company
paid $2.50 per day.
The DeLamar company is opposed
to the eight hour law in Utah. Mr.
DeLamar threatened to leave the
state if the law was passed, but he
didn't. The rate of wages paid in
Utah, where living is on an average
22 per cent, less than in this province,
ranges from $2 to p8 per day for eight
hours. The claim is made by Mr.
Oxnnm that the eight-hour law in
Utah has tended to demoralize the
and Poorman during the day, and as
soon as the mine is again in shape to
employ more men they will be employed.
The Athabasca, which has been operating slightly shorthanded, will take, on
all the men it needs and will work to
its full capacity.
The wages the Granite and Athabasca
are paying are not exactly the same as
the Slocan scale calls for, despite the
statements made to that effect. The
scale adopted by the mine managers is
$8 25 for drillers and from |2.50 to $3 00
for muckers, with a uniform reduction
of SI per day for board. The mine
managers are, however, hiring only the
very best underground muckers and
are, paying them Si? a day and if they
are worth more they will be paid more.
This, at least, is the policy being pursued by Captain Duncan of the Granite
and Poorman. He has selected none
but arood men  for  the, underground
*-�� t<
work at 88 per day and for the men on
the surface he pays from $2.50 to $8.00
according: to their worth.
Cape Nome Overdone.
The steamer Danube on her recent
recent arrival from Skagway brought
two passengers from Nome, the new
gold field of Alaska. " ney are R. R.
MacKae, and F. H. Nngel, who left
Nome on January 6th, and were.4(i days
reaching Skagway. They say that the
winter at Nome has been comparatively
mild, thirty below being about the
lowest temperature. They report hard
weather on the trail and a very difficult
journey, with a poor outlook for many
of the hundreds whom they found making their way in with the hope of staking. Though those who have claims
will probably do well, the rush is being
The excitement over the reports of
rich finds on the Siberian coast has
been cooled by the discovery that the
Russian authorities do not allow foreigners to mine there unless holding
permits from St. Petersburg, which can
be procured only through very special
influence. Many men are going down
the coast as far as Unalak. It is said
that the fields at Cape Nome are only
averaging 82 cents to the pan and the
