smaller gangs. There are indications that the Jackson will be reopened
Passenger traffic over the C. P. R.
has greatly improved during the past
month. The average arrivals in Sandon now are 50 to 75 daily. Over the

but freight business is probably the best

good string of loads coming and going
every day.
D J McLaughlan has taken the
contract for the C. P. R- depot It

than the old one. The passenger sidetrack and platform will be 01. the west

One look down the new street is sufficient evidence thai the judgement of
the men who favored it was good. A
broad, straight therefore, with no electric light, telephone or telegraph poles,
and an even grade with no kinks in it is
what Sandon will have for its main
street. When built up, as it will be
within the next three months, it will be
the handsomest street in the Kootenay
Clarence J. McCuaig of the firm of
McCuaig, Rykert & Co., Montreal,
and Senator Warner-Miller of Ne;v
Vork have been in Nelson for a few

Slocan Sovereign and other properties
which the McCuaig, Rykert firm is

It is about time to take the census
in the lower end. The population of

increasing so rapidly that the dent/ens

served with blue papers.

club will interest. themselves in laying
before all the teams ot the Kootenay

that will probably be interested in the
matter are those from Kaslo, Silverton,
Trail, Greenwood, Rossland and probably two teams from Nelson. The
necessary arrangements will be made
in the near future, and as football is
one of the leading sports of the Koot-
enavs it is hoped that the scheme will
be sucessfully carried out. Nelson

Mounted Police washing since her
arrival in the Klonkike. She is dis-
cribed as ihe bell of Dawson.
Al. Bartlett, so the News says is engaged in freighting from Circle City to
Tanana. He has sent the greater number of his horses to Cape Nome but is so
impressed with the outlook of the
Tanana that it is doubtful if he will
follow them.
Jas. Williamson will build a 30x50

painting of the headwaters of the Columbia, is a grand piece of mountain
scenery. Another picture represents a

Locomotive Firemen's Magazine:
Not long since the days of Hernando
Cortez and Francisco Pizzaro ba��*e the
civilized nations exhibited such a voracious hunger for tbe commercial conquest of pagans.   The "cross and the
sword" of the Spanish  eivilizers  are
just as apparent in China as in Peru or
Mexico five centuries ago.   Missionaries
are  sent   to  China to overthrow the
chinch of state and save the souls of
heathens.   These heathens, as all people
have always done, are willing to kill the
name of their deity, even though their
deities be of wood and brass.
It is said that those whom the gods
destroy they first make mad. The
civilized nations have made the Chinese
pagans mad, and will now proceed to
destroy them���besides look at the great
opportunity to extend our commerce
What civilized people call the "boxers," are doubtless the "patriots," the
"sons nf liberty" of the Chinese���but
the trade with China will be greatly
enhanced by the conquest of China.
Christians may slaughter Jews to
their heart's content, in the European
countries, but that is only "anti semi-
tism," and of no concern to outsiders,
but if a follower of Confucius administers tbe same treatment to a Christian
the whole christian world joins in the
invasion���besides, if the whole world
did not join, some people might not
receive their share of the ensuing commerce.
It is not only China that suffers the
pangs of an attempt to establish a
"good government " The map of the
world is spotted with the blood of the
weaker people who are the subject:* of
the great civilizing races. Poor little
Belgium has not the national importance to Hoat a first-class war ship���but
she can "assimilate" in the most im
proved manner The Petit Bleu, of
Brusse's, thus protests against the inhumanity of tho business men of that
country who have "become invested in
Congo investments."

died with Lotharie and other Congo
agents in defence of the cruel practices
there.   The agent Moray says: "The
rebellion of the Mongalla region is due
solely to the cruelty with which the
natives are treated.   Rubber  is  the
booty of the white invader now.   If, in
a village of 100  inhabitants able to
work, only 50 appear with the required
amount of rubber, soldier* are sent to
kill the other 50.   The so-called 'loyal'
natives are used to fight against the
'disloyal,' and as all are man-eaters, it
is easy to reward the loyalists by promises of feasts on the corpses of the
Another continental paper is authority for the following deposition:
Congo State, District Bengals: Before
me, agent of the Antwerp Trading
Society, appeared at Mendika, the sergeants Massamboko aud Mulando, and
the privates Mutuana and Pongo, all of
the station of Mandika,  who swore as
"White  man!    We  have   returned
from the war    We marched HO hours
distance   with   the  white  man  Imele
(Van Eyken).    He ordered us to enter
the village, to see if the inhabitants had
gathered enough rubber.   If they had
not, they  were,  to  kill  them     lu  one
village we told him we had fulfilled  his
orders.   Ho told us we had not done
enough    He told us to cut up the men,
placing the pieces on poles; the bodies
of women and children wo were to put
on a big scaffold in the shape of a cross.
Returning through N'Dobe we found
all the natives treated like that.   We
swear this is true."
Other reports, says the, Peoria Herald,
state "that the natives have had theii
acteristics.   Standing on one of these
highest  points  one  sees dense forest
lands heavily timbered with pine, fir,
spruce and balsam fir; miles of dead
trees lying thickly piled on each other,
as if they were the victims of a sudden
tornado, stripped of every vestige of
bark and glistening white in the glaring
sunlight, acres of long green waving
grass on which a host of cattle could he
fattened, and beautiful park lands with
bare swards dotted with clumps of firs,
lend a charm to the foreground ol a
mighty panorama.   Far, far in the distance, to the south, west,  north and
east, forming a complete circle to the
picture, there rises the snowclad peaks
of  mountain rangeH that seem to he
much higher than those nearer at hand.
These peaks may be 100 miles nway.

attributed alike to French, English and
Belgian officers, the only difference being that while the Belgian denounce
the outrages the French and English
organs exercise patriotic prudence in
not making the .rimes public.1.

Summit Camp, Similkamccn ��� We
are camped on the summit of the big
divide that reaches up from the Kere-
meos valley and extends westward for
many miles, nearly to Princeton.    Here
it is cold and the wind rather obtrusive,
but on the whole the climatic conditions
are bracing and healthful. Fancy yourself walking over ten. feet of snow  iu
the middle of July !   This has been one
of my experiences lately.   But the snow
is only to be found in the gulches or
"draws" on the north side of the mountains, and in  many  instances remains
until next winter's "beautiful" covers it
over like a clean tablecloth hiding a
dirty kitchen table.
The summit of this divide, or rather
the many summits, covers an immense
area.and exhibits many divergent char-

that is the longest way about, it la by

An Old Mine.
An interesting event io the mining
world will be celebrated ;it Eisleben, iii
Germany, where ceremonies will be
held in commemoration of the seven
hundredth anniversary of the opening
of the Mansfield copper mines, which
lire still actively worked. These mines
anicd,Uc by ii few \ear> those of the
Stora Kopparbnrget in Sweden, and
ate the oldest mines in the world which
have been operated continuously, or
with only briel interruptions. It is
true thai the Rio Tinto mines in Spain
were worked by the Romans and the
lead mine-- of Laiium in Greece bj
their Greek owners over 2000 years
ago ; hut there are gaps ol centuries in
the history of these mines.
A scientific contemporary states lhat
two slow but interesting changes are
taking place in Behring Sea. The
immense quantity ol debris that is-,
borne down the Yukon irom it-, sdurces
.t id sides i*-- being deposited in the sea
beyond the mouth of that mighty

the new islands are the result of the
rise, and in others they are the result
ol volcanic action. Most of the Aleutians are ot volcanic origin, and they
mark the position of a fold in the earth's

SANDON, B. C., AUGUST 4,  1900.
Thkre ark only two potknt factors in Canadian
politics today���pocket-book and prejudice. The Canadian
electors are swayed only by considerations of personal profit
or party power. Men do not vote according to the dictates
of their own conscience ; neither do they follow the course
which their judgment indicates as most likely to produce
the best results for the country at large. All great questions
are, like the tariff, treated as local and personal matters
and voted on according to the dollars and cents judgment
or the party prejudice of each individual voter. No other
factors enter seriously into a settlement of the policy of the
dominion. Others may appear to carry weight but they
are like the old flag most emotional when mentioned in
conjunction with an appropriation. So we find that in
order to convert a voter to any political propaganda it is
necessary to first show him where he is personally
This is the lesson that British Columbia must teach
eastern Canada in connection with the vital question of
Oriental labor. Until the great majority of the people of
Canada can be brot to see the personal loss which they will
suffer from an unrestricted immigration of Asiatics there
is little probability that the curse by which this province is
blighted will be lifted. Until the people of Ontario, Quebec and the Maritime provinces come directly in contact
with the cheap labor and cheaper morality of the slant-eyed
heathens of China and Japan we cannot expect an intelligent
or even an interested vote on the question. All the campaign literature ever printed and all the platform oratory
er spouted would not have half the effect on an Ontario
orer as would the loss of his job to make room for a
pig-tail wage-cutter from the Flowery Kingdom.
Something like this will have to be done. In a few
years more British Columbia will be in the hands of the fat
and foreign capitalist whose only interest in the Chinese
question is to secure cheaper labor and larger dividends.
Already one industry is passing into the hands of Jap labor
and the militia is on hand to see that it is well done. By
the ultimate loss of the Fraser river strike three thousand
fishermen, most of them natives of Canada, will find their
occupation gone and themselves tramps, while three thousand Japs, most of them not three months in the country,
will find themselves British subjects, protected by military
chumps packing rifles and ordered to shoot and shoot to
kill any of their countrymen who protest against being
robbed of their livlihood.
What is happening on the Fraser will happen in every
other industry in the province unless prompt action is
taken. Any student of events who has followed the fishermen's case for any length of time can easily see that the
promised substitution of white with Jap labor is not an accidental but the premeditated outcome of the trouble. The
plan has been carefully prepared and is being skillfully
carried out, and the cannery men's success will be a shining
example of what can be done in the line of wage-cuttincr
when the government can be depended on to furnish the
militia to shoot anyone who does not take kindly to
With the Japs firmly established in other industries,
their introduction into the mining  camps  of the Kootenav
will soon follow. In Nevada city, so the exchanges say
Japs have taken the place of white miners at $1 a dav, with.
out board. Such conditions would drive every white man out
of this country. But unless the white men take the matter
into their own hands immediately this will happen as sure
as fate. To look to such governments as we have in B. C,
is a waste of time. Poor man have no rights that wealth is
bound to respect. There never was a statute framed that
corporate power will not defy. There is not a law in the
decalogue that cannot be broken with impunity and it is the
business of lawyers to tell how it can be done. Lawyers
and creatures of corporate wealth control the government of
British Columbia, and relief is   not  lo be found with them.
Unless the pocket-book or prejudice of eastern Canadians can he perceptibly jarred there is no hope tor B. C,
The sentiments of the large body of electors must be
awakened from an apathy which is allowing this province
to be strangled in its infancy. Eastern workingmen who
never came in contact with the Chinese question except in
the back columns of a parti/an press must have the matter
impressed on them thru the medium of starvation ; and
the misguided eastern church folks who have a long range
love for their pig-tailed heathen brother must learn by closer
inspection of the social and moral ulcers which these people
inflict on a community.
There is only one reasonable and practicable manner
in which this can be accomplished, and that is by introducing the Chinese and Japanese right into the homes oi the
eastern people. Ship tlie yellow devastators into Winnipeg,
Toronto and Montreal, and with one mighty voice the
people will rise and demand that the influx be checked
forthwith, Touch their pocket-book and their hearts are
ours. No "Imperial reasons" will satisfy a man who has
lost his job, and the universal brotherhood ot" man is a myth
to congregations whose sons are out ot employment and
whose daughters are threatened with a fate worse than
death. Lead the easterner forcibly up against a realization
that he and the versatile Jap cannot thrive in the same
community and he will immediately commence an agitation
to keep the Jap out.
Thk Kootenaian, in Kaslo, is kicking aboul hard
times and looks forward to some future date when business
will revive in that town. Boundary papers are also out
with a wail about dull business and even Nelson merchants
are giving out that times are quiet in the metropolis ot the
The hard luck story does not apply lo Sandon. This
city suffered a geater loss than any other city in the Kootenay ever did, but there is more hopefulness and more
bovancy about Sandon now than will be found in any other
town in B. C. There are more men employed hereabout
than there has been for over two years. Ore shipments
are greater than for many months. ' Business is good and
constantly improving. Almost every business man who
lost in the great fire has re-established himself and nearly
all are putting up substantial and expensive buildings,
which indicates that the men who are best acquainted with
the Slocan district are satisfied for the present ami look
with perfect confidence to what the future will bring. San-
don |s all right and no one is better satisfied with it than
the Sandon people themselves.

The Toronto Telegram   comments
thus "ii the efforts of the mine operators
to reduce wages in B. C.S "The miserable $1.26 per day which an alien
monopoly pays to the miners at Sudbury
is tin' standard by whieb the mining
brokers of Toronto condemn the British
Columbia miner's demand for $8.50 for
an eiyht-hour day. They say: 'Joe
Martin is a dnngerou* man He has
struck a bard blow at the British Columbia industry Tbe miners at Sudbury
arc glad to gel ?1.25 for a ten-hour day,
ami why should the British Columbia
miners gi-t 18.50 for an eight-hour dav'-"
"The foregoing words show that the
Bi iti-h Columbia government has alien-
nted the mining brokers. It might be
nearer the fads to say the eastern
brokers; lint the western brokers are
like them iu their inability to see any
virtue in a law which increases the cost
<>f mining for the benefit of the miners.
Ontario would sooner level the wages
of tin- Smibury miners up to the British
Columbia standard than level the wages
of tbe British Columbia miners down to
the Sudbury standard It is a disgrace
t" tbe country that the nickel wealth of
Sudbury, which has tilled the pockets
of alien millionaires, has never paid
ilitcut living wa-^es to Canadian laborers, British Columbia does well to resist any approach to the Sudbury standard wages. The brokers who are shout-
ing against 18.50 for an eight hour day
in Uritish Columbia would soon be
shouting against 8:1 for ten-hour day.
Ontario objects to the conditions which
have enabled a monopoly to extract the
Budbury nickel on its own terms, and
those conditions have not been such a
blessing to the Sudbury district that
they should be reproduced in British
Columbia."���Algoma Pioneer.
An old man in (ieorgia, named .lack
U 1'iMwin, says tbe Atlanta Journal,
having lost bis hat hi a dry well,bitched
fl ropo to a stump and let himself down.
A wicked josber named Neal came
along just then, and, quietly detaching
A bell from Baldwin's old blind horse,
"Pproached the well, bell in band, and
began to ting-a-ling. Jack thought the
old horse was coming, and said: "Hang
the old blind horse; he's coming this

little dirt on Jack's head, and Jack
began to pray. "Oh, Lord, have m**rcy

and shouted a laugh which might have
been heard two miles, which was as far
as Jack chased him when he got out.
George T. Bell, for years a Texas
ranger, and later in the employ of tbe
government secret service, is in St.
Louis, says tbe Chicago Democrat.
On bis person he carries marks of six
knife wounds while on duty as a ranger
for the government. Possibly the most
thrilling experience through which he
passed was a duel on the streets of
Tucson, Ariz., in that town's palmiest
Bell had been instrumental in rounding up and capturing a gang of counterfeiters known as the "Shang Brooks"
gang. They had their "mint" up in
the Pelloncillo mountains, in the Gila
river country. All were sent to the
penitentiary and have been released
save Brooks, who escaped. A warrant,
indorsed "dead or alive," was placed in
Bell's hands for service. He located
Brooks in a saloon in Tucson, and,
walking up, notified him that be was
under arrest.
Shang glanced patronizingly upon
Bell, for he was six feet two in his
stocking feet and a giant in strength
Then he announced: "Sonny, you'se '11
have to grow some." He bad half
turned from the bar as he spoke, and
Bell did not know that tbe movement
was shielding bis hand as it crept to his
pistol Some one in the saloon yelled a
warning and instantly there came a
shot. Shang reeled and then sank to
the floor, with a bullet through his
Bell had fired through his coat pocket,
The wound was fatal, though it did not
at once cause Brooks to lose command
over himself 1'nlling himself together,
the desperado drew his weapon, which
lay beneath him, and was leveling it at
Bell when the detective sent another
bullet through his pistol wrist, ending
his ability io do harm.   He died a few
hours later.
Though Bell did not know it at the
time, Brooks had two companions in
tbe town, Jack and Jim Styles,brothers
They beard of tbe shooting and decided
to avenge the death of their pal. Later
in the dav,as Bell walked past a general
store in the frontier town, some one
veiled: "Look out, Mr. Bell!" Turning
like a flash, at the same time drawing
his revolver, the, detective saw Jim
Stvles on the opposite side of the street.
He saw smoke Issue from Style's
weapon, and a bullet seared his temple.
Jim Styles continued shooting, his
brother Jack, on the same side of the
street with Bell, coming to his assistance.
One shot at Jim Styles laid that
worthy on the ground. Jack Styles
gave a yell of agony as he saw his
brother fall, and advanced toward Bell,
firing as he came. The two men paused
within ten paces of each other, and
there they emptied their weapons. Bell
had no knife, and when Styles saw this
he gave a yell of triumph, tossed his
revolver from him and jumped in with
a bowie knife in his hand. The two
closed in upon each other.
At Styles' first slash of the knife, Bell
sidestepped, though the point of the
knife made a painful wound over his
right eyebrow. Another vicious thrust
he parried, though the keen weapon
laid open his left forearm, pierced his
upper lip, knocking out two front teeth.
By this time the two men were upon
the. ground, Bell beneath his antagonist.
He beard some one call his name and
another moment felt something strike
bis side. Reaching out his hand fell
upon a pistol. A sigh of relief followed
this discovery and he placed the weapon
full against Styles' chest, just as the
latter raised his knife for a last thrust.
Bell pulled the trigger and sent a bullet
through his heart.
Both brothers lay dead, and Bell
fainted from loss of blood.
Woodbury Creek Mine*.
Woodbury creek, on Kootenay lake,
is the scene of much mining activity.
An important cash deal has just been
put through by Charles Caldwell. He
has purchased the Pontiac and Tecum-
seb claims on behalf of J. D. Chaplin
and E. L Sawyer of Toronto. Chaplin
is one of the largest shareholders in the
Rambler-Cariboo, Deer Trail and Bonanza mining companies. The Pontiac
and Tecumseh are well known properties. W. L. Scowden had them bonded
for $(-.5,000 two years ago. He spent
115,000 but failed to obtain an extension
of his bond. The Canadian Pacific
Mining Company, in which this capital
is interested, is spending a large
amount of money developing claims at
the mouth of Woodbury creek. It is
about to put in a $25,000 compressor
and hoist and may spend a quarter o�� a
million dollars sinking a shaft 2,500 feet
"Do you mean to tell me that man-
eating: lion of yours got loose snd
wandered out. into the streets?"
"Yes," answered the proprietor ol the
show, "and a lot of trouble he made
us." "Did you have any difficulty
in catching him?" "I should say
so! It was hours before we could get
near enough to lead him back to his
cage. You see, some of the bad boys
of this town had tied a tin can to his

Earth's transitory things decay;
Its pomps, its pleasures, pass away;
But the sweet memory of the good
Survives in the vicissitude.

As, in the heavens, the urns divine
Of golden light forever shine;
Though  clouds may  darken, stormr

They still shine on from age to age.
So, through the ocean-tide of years,
The memory of the just appears;
So, through the tempest and the gloom,
The good man's virtues light the tomb.

Dust of the sea is one ot the mysteries which perplex sailors. No

A wonderful reserve fund for the
human appetite is to be found in the
vegetable diet of tbe Klamath Indians.
A novel variety of food forming a
menu unknown to the civilized is
offered in the pulp of the great yellow
water lily, which is converted into a
farinaceous food; in the food known
as goosefoot, which bears a black
seed that is ground up for loaves and
cakes, and in the arrowhead, which
in the fall develops a starchy white
tuber at the end of the roots.

Don't swear at the heat. Remember

Don't walk in tbe sun.   Have it moved
