An epidemic of grip has visited Sandon during the past few days. It has
been entirely impartial in its attentions,
and many who never had anything to
brag about except hard luck now have
the grip.
The first offence for the season occurred sin New Year's day, when a lew
enthusiastic curlers chased the burnished granite from end to end while the
old familiar airs of "In Turn," "Soon
'er I'p," and "That's the Daisy," iv-
sounded thru  the frosty ozone.

Will   not    Long   Remain   Closed.
Smelters will Raise Rates.
The only properties yet affected by
the disorganized stale of the lead ore
market are the Payne Whitewater and
Last Chance.
At the   Payne  ahout 20   men   have
[been laid off.    Since   the   1st  the shipments  have been  ho tons  to Trail and
20 tons to Evefttt.    The balance ofthe
ore mined is being   stored in the mine.
The Whitewater only shipped 44,!_
tons tor the week ending January 3rd,
and on Thursday the night shift in both
the mine and mill were laid off, throwing thirty men out sif employment.
Twenty-five men were laid off at the
Last Chance last night. The lay-off is
the result sif the smelter company's
refusal to purchase lead ore.
The present indications are that the
market will again be open within ten
days sir two weeks. Reliable information is not easily obtainable, but as the
smelters are now negotiating for a new
rate it is evident the action sif the combine in refusing to renew contracts was
due entirely to a desire lo raise rates.
The Municipal Situation.
There was .in informal meeting sif
citizens in the Miners' Union Hall on
Thursday evening to discuss the municipal situation and to lake some steps
toward putting a ticket in the field for
the municipal offices. The only action
taken was to appoint a committee sif
four to canvass likely candidates and
ascertain who would be willing to offer
their services. There will bea meeting
in the ballon Monday evening at which
prospective candidates will be given an
opportunity to declare themselves.
Robert Cunning is being requested
by many sif his friends to run for the

consented to enter th.- field his friends
claim that he will run and he elected.
The names of the aspirants for alder-
manic honors who will run on the
ticket have not yet been given out, but
they will probably present themselves
at Monday's meeting;

Mr. Dacid's Second Epistle on Sandon's Cicic Affairs.
Editor Paystkkak,
1 desire to show to the citizens
of Sandon that our mayor and alder-
men, thru retaining Mr. Stubbs, have
failed to give us the police service that
we are paying for.
11 appears to me that paid officials
should he selected, not on account of
relationship, but because they can give
the best service.
When Kay's tailor shop was burglarized and Police Magistrate Lilly found
the door tampered with, he apparently
did not consider the matter important
enuf loreporl il to Chief Stubbs. Four
days after, when I discovered that a
quantity of cloth had been stolen and
reported it to Mr. Stubbs, he informed
me that Mr. Lilly had not mentioned
anything to him about it. Perhaps Mr.
Lilly thot it useless to report to the
chief, believing he would refuse to trace
the thieves, as he refused me.
When I explained to Stubbs how to
follow certain clews he refused and informed me that 1 must collect the evidence and then lay an information,
which clearly proved to me he did not
understand his duty as a police officer.
I spoke to the police magistrate and
also to the mayor and they both informed me that a policeman had no power
to follow up the case or work sin any
clews. The only way a policeman
could act was for me to lay an information. 1 should imagine that this is the
most ridiculous advize or opinion ever
uttered by a police magistrate. If
correct, it would mean that when a
citizen's place was broken into, unless
the owner saw the thieves or did his
own police or detective work and secured
evidence himself he need not look to
the police for aid. Since that statement
I have realized that Mr. Lilly did not
possess the necessary discernment to be
police magistrate.
Any reader sif newspapers knows
that thieves are traced down, goods
recovered and evidence collected by
the ones authorised to perform that
duty which is police aud detective work
in every city except Sandon.
Later on a traveller for a tailoring
house sold goods contrary lo the municipal by-law. I explained to the chief
of police how he could secure sufficient evidence to convict this party.
"No " he said, "you secure the evi-
denci and lay the information and I
will get the summons." In other
words, I was to do police work, for
which 1 as a merchant was helping to
pay him a salary of $90 per month, to
do.    He   would   till  in   the summons
form and I could, without pay, neglect
my business and do police and detective
duty in order to prevent an infringement of the city bylaw.
I don't blame Chief Stubbs for continuing to draw his salary ; but I do
blame the mayor and aldermen who
are responsible for retaining him in*
During Mayor Pitts absence a charge
of neglect was laid against Chief of
Police Stubbs. He wes examined by
Acting Mayor Buckley, and Police
Commissioners Atherton and Sandilands. He was found guilty and suspended for three days. One of the
reasons given why he was not suspended for all time was that it looked like
taking advantage of Mr. Buckley's
position as acting mayor to bring
the case up while Mr. Pitts was away.
Now, it appears to me that it was not
the duty of the acting mayor or the
commissioners to consider what the
feelings of Mr. Pitts would be on the
matter. They should be controlled by
their sense of duty to the citizens as a
whole, not lo individuals. And without doubt Mr. Pitts would have, as an
honorable gentleman, complimented
them on doing their dutv.
** m f
The leniency displayed by the acting
mayor and commissioners apparently
did not waken Mr. Stubbs lo a realization of his duty, because at the expiration of his suspension he appeared in
full uniform and proceeded to unload
lumber from a car and personally
oversee and work for several days upon
the building which was being constructed for Mayor Pitts. Now this
work took place under the eyes of the
commissioners and it certainly was
commented on enuf for them to know
of it. Mr. Stubbs showed by his action
that he was not very much afraid of
the .acting mayor, commissioners or
aldermen. Now, I would like to ask
this body if any one of them would pav
$3.00 a day for the services of a man
in their business and while paying him
allow him to be working for some
other party ? 1 am sure the answer
would be "No" from all. Now does
this not prove that the business of the
city has been neglected, and that citizens suffer thereby. Is it not a disgrace that such officials are retained
when they deliberately refuse to perform the duties which we are employing them to carry out ?

About that Comical.
Sandon has an opportunity which
should not be overlooked. Rossland,
Nelson, Kaslo and   Revelstoke  hockey
teams have signified their willingness
to come to the Silver City to take part
in a tournoment to he pulled off here.
There is no doubt lhal an invitation to
a CuTling bonspiel would meet with an
equally ready acceptance from outside
towns. By bringing the two events off
together Sandon might have a carnival
unsurpassed by anything in the Kootenays. The time for action is right
now. The city council should make a
small grant toward the undertaking
and public-minded citizens should
Committees to bring the thing off successfully. There will be no money lost
lo Ihe community on a good winter
carnival, and the city could not get a
cheaper advertlsment.
A Fatality at Whitetcater.
Alex Morrison, miner in   the  employ
of the Sunset mine, Whitewater, was
killed on Tuesdav afternoon by a dynamite explosion. Little is known about
the accident, except that (he deceased
went to the powder house to thaw some
powder and that shortly afterward the
explosion occurred.
The funeral, which was conducted
under the auspices sif the Whitewater
.Miners' Union, took plaee to the Sandon cemetery on Thursday morning.
Alex .Morrison, who was a young
man, was a native of Cape Breton.
He had been in South Africa for some
lime and only arrived in Whitewater a
few weeks ago. He had no relations
in this section of the country. His
friends in the east have been notified of
the accident.

The Band Dance.
The last evening of the nineteenth
century was a jolly one for the seventy-
five couples who participated in the
Brass Band dance on New Year's Eve.
There was a merry time in the hall that
evening, and the entrancing strains of
Duffy's orchestra never marked time
to lighter feet. In a considerable measure the success of the affair was due to
the attentions of the lady friends ofthe
band, wbo contributed to the enjoyment
by furnishing an elegant supper for the
party. There were many present from
outside points, and so pleasant was the
event that the hand boys have decided
lo give periodical entertainments along
similar lines. The exchequer of Sandon's symphony organization did not
suffer in the experiment as the dance
was a financial as well as a social
success. The announcement of the
date of the next one will be awaited
with impatience by the many who so
thoroly enjoyed themselves on New
Year's Eve.

SANDON, fi. O., JANUARY 5,  1901.
Those among the citizens of Sandon who have so
frequently declared that the municipal affairs have been
badly handled, now have their opportunity to remedy
matters. There are something like thirty citizens who are
eligrble for office as aldermen and over half of this number
are' qualified for mayor. With so many to choose from
there is no excuse for an election by acclamation.
--There are _many .important matters to be dealt with by
the next council. The most important of these is the
street question. The flume should be completed and the
Main street graded down to the' Brayton townsite at once
and at some later date carried on thru to the lower city
limits. The relief committee or the city council or both
displayed-tiegligence in failing to do this work last summer. The new Council, if it does its duty, will take the
matter up immediately upon assuming office and carry the
work thru to the power house before the spring freshets.
The people on the lower end of Reco Avenue have not
been fairly dealt with in this regard.
The police department is also in need of reform. Mr.
Stubbs is not the man that the majority of citizens want to
preserve law and order and to look after their property.
.\s to his honesty, we have nothing to say. As to his
ability to perform his duties as a minion of the law there is
very general question.
A few people have also found fault with the city clerk
and the manner in which he has fulfilled the duties of his
office. Particular exception is taken to the manner of compiling the voters list and it is being stated that Mayor
Pitts and Mr. Lilly indulged in Tammany practice.
Whether there is anything to such charges remains to be
seen. There are several names on the list as holders of
trader's licenses who are not in business in the city. Some
of them are employees of business men ; others are neither
business men nor employees of such. Whether or not
these are entitled to vote is a legal question which the dissenting citizens should certainly take steps to have settled
without delay.
The water and light question also requires immediate
attention. This city has been without street lights for over
eighteen months. The lights are needed and the citizens
are entitled to the service. The new council should see to
it that a street liget service is secured.
The city scavenging department is another matter that
will probably be ventifated during the civic elections. The
city team was a municipal burlesque for many months. The
team worked for other interests than the city's and the city
did not get wages for the man or the team.
Councils and mayors are about like other elective
bodies. They are as careful and business-like as the people
who elect them. Several of the members of the old council served in that capacity against their will. They had the
qualifications and were elected by acclamation whether they
liked it or no. Now the situation is different, and the
citixens who have been vehement in their denunciation of
Mayor Pitts and the old council should make good their
words by stepping forward and taking a part in   the forma
tion of the next municipal coouncil. If the affairs ofthe
city are not satisfactorily admisitered during the next year
the people who elect the council are as much to blame as
the council elected. Now is the time to fetch out candidates and make a selection. No one wants to hear as
much kicking during the next twelve months as there has
been during the last.
Thk Slocan mining industry is feeling the pressure of
an American monopoly. The American Smelting & Refining Company has decided to raise rates and the Slocan
mine owners stand waiting for the verdict.
From the standpoint of an observer it appears that the
smelter combine has the power to name any price which
suits it and the mine owners can not do otherwise than
accept. The silver-lead mining industry is already carrying
nearly all it can stand in smelter charges, freight rates,
taxes and deductions of one kind and another. Unless the
limit is reached soon the industry will not be able to carry
the load.
The only way that the silver-lead mining industry can lv
relieved from the American smelter combine's rapacity is
by the building of Canadian smelters. These smelters
would have to be in the control ofthe mine owners themselves. Otherwise the Canadian smeherman would, thru
the operation of tariffs and railway discriminations of one
kind or another eventually become possessed of as complete
a monopoly as that ofthe American combine.
If the present trouble between the smelter men and the
mine owners leads to the construction of such smelters in
Canada of a sufficient capacity to handle the Canadian output it will be a lasting benefit to the Slocan.
Thk Sandon-Silvkrton tunnel scheme is attracting
considerable attention. The proposition is such a gigantic
one that is is difficult to grasp its full significance. The
names of the promoters are not known, but if they have the
necessary four or five million to push thru the work of running a crosscut tunnel from Slocan lake to tap Sandon
properties at fifteen hundred feet below the townsite, ard
if they actually mean business, a new era has dawned for
the Slocan.

Sing not to me of the glories of war,

For carnage and song discordant are
And murder is crime wherever 'tis done.
Say not to me lis the good will of God
That men should lahor and study to kill
Nor ask me to pray for the shedders of
That their arms may he strong to work
His will.
I trust not the god nor believe the creed
That appeals to force as the final good,
And crushes men as the furious steed

Who trusts to  the sword  by the sword

Cursed is the man, accursed the nation,
Whose passions or pride only death can

The sun shall set on their desolation,
And sorrow shall shadow their brightest

John is one ofthe pioneer business men
of Sandon. He came to the Slocan
when the camp was young and in the
early prospecting days was fortunate
in getting hold of some property which
netted him handsome returns. Since
then he has been in the hotel business
in Sandon, and at the present day there
are few people in the Slocan who cannot claim acquaintenship with John
Buckley. While all wish him every
success in the mining business, many
are sorry to lose him from among the
business men ol the city.
