The site of the Minnesota Silver
Company's concentrator is one of the
busiest scenes in British Columbia just
now. Grading for the foundation has
been about completed and the masons
are making rapid progress with the
stone work. Heavy shipments of timber are being received daily and there
is an activity about the place that denotes that the big mill will be running
just as soon as possible.

the Sympathies of the Audience
Were tcith Green. Jim McGeer,

Feet of Worh
The longest crosscut in the Slocan
will be started at the Star mine in a few-
days. The plans, which are now being
prepared by W. S. Drewry, are for a
tunnel to start from a point close to the
mill and to run in for over 2000 feet to
tap the Star ledge. The tunnel will be-
double track, probably 8x12 feet. Work
will be commenced just as soon as the
plans are completed, and every modern
mining appliance will be used to rush it
through as rapidly as it can be done.
We hope to be able to give fuller particulars of the plans of the company in
our next issue.
There are few companies in British
Columbia that have spent as much
money in developing their properties as
the Byron N. White company. In the
Slocan county there is only one other
company that compares with them, the
Minnesota Silver company, and this
last undertaking by the White people
places the Star again in advance in the
matter of development.
Monday night's meeting in Crawfords
hall was the only political gathering of
any consequence that has taken place
during the campaign. The meeting
was called in the interests of John Keen
and Robert F. Green spoke for himself
while Jim McGeer of Vancouver did the
oratorical act for George Kane and his
Martinite allies.
John Keen opened the meeting by
stating that altho it was called in his
interests he intended to speak for only
20 minutes, giving Green a full hour,
McGeer 40 minutes, and allowing
Green 15 minutes to reply to McGeer,
while he (Keen) would have the option
of final word. For his generosity in
the matter Keen received the applause
of the audience.
Taking up the political questions,
John Keen entered on a line of argument anent the mining laws. He
undertook to show contradictions and
complications in the mineral act, which
had been brought to his notice while in
the employ of the government. He
next took up the matter of the protested votes, claiming that he was in no
way responsible for the fact that the
votes being protested against, but he
admitted being an accessory before the
fact as he said that he attended a meeting
of the protestors for the purpose of having certain names that he knew to be
"good" left of!" the list of miners and
laborers protested against. Keen concluded his short sketch by reviewing
the manner in which the eight-hour
law had been placed on the statute-
books and endeavoring to show that
Green had not done his duty to his constituents during the strike, while he
himself had been instrumental to a large
extent in securing a settlement.
When Green took the  floor  he   was
received   with   great  applause  and  it
could easily be seen that the sympathies
of the meeting   were   with   him.     His
speech was along tbe   same   lines   that
he had followed at   previous  meetings.
He went carefully over  the  eight-hour
question and  showed   where  his  vote
was, in his estimation, in the best interests of the country  at  large.    He  did
not think that John Keen had won any
great laurels  as  peace  maker  in   the
strike, as, practically speaking.no treaty
had been made except that the  miners
had accepted the  scale  offered  by   the
association.    However,   if John   Keen
had any boquets coming he could  elect
himself an admiration  committee  and
bury himself in a snow  drift  of sweet
scented   roses.      The   electors   would
leave him at home just the same. Green
also went over the vote protesting case
again and showed where Keen, even on
his own admission, was in on the  plav
to disfranchise the miners and working-
men of the  camp.    He  occupied   the
remainder of his time in discussing  his
platform and the platform of his opponents and telling what he hoped to do in
the next house and what he  had  done
in the last.    When Green sat down he
was cheered to the echo and  quietness
was only restored by the chairman call-
on Jim McGeer.
McGeer is a milkman irom Vancouver, and his appearance, actions and
accent are true to his profession, but litis a good single-handed talker just the
same, and, considering the short space
of lime at his disposal, he made the
best Martin speech that ha* been heard
in the Slocan. Jim is something of a
josher, and a number of hi-, arguments,
such as his explanation of the Dunsinuir
p-oposition or Ralph Smitl s stand with
regard to Martin, are not intended for
* people who read the papers, but his
speech was away ahead of anything else
that has been produce'! bj his party
orators since Joe himself visited the
The replies were just such as replies
to a political speech usually are���idols
torn down and Statements refined; but
the audience did hot disperse until the
last word was heard, which was after
The council met on Monday evening,
hut owing to the political meeting the
council was adjourned till next evening.
At Tuesday's meeting the following
motion was put:
Moved by Aid. Buckley, seconded by
Aid. Thompson, that the council make
no change in tl. street as shown on
plan 609 A, unless the owners of property on Reco street agree to cede to
the city the necessary laud for widening
said street.
The ayes were Buckley, Thompson
and Macdonald; n:'\s, Atherton, Hunter
and Crawford. The casting vote of
Mayor Pitts decided in favor of the old
A Rich Strike on the Socereign.
The owners of the Sovereign came in
for some luck a few days ago, when the
Reco-Goodenough ledge was discovered
cutting across their ground. Surface-
work has shown 12 inches of clean ore
of the same character as that found on
the Reco and Goodenough claims.
Assays from the Sovereign find run as
high as 2000 ounces.
The Sovereign people intend to open
up the find immediately, and the local
manager, Geo. T. Ransom, has started
a tunnel 55 feet below the find.
J. M. Harris and J. A. Whittier, who
own the adjoining claims, the Number
One and Twilight, have started a tunnel
lower down to catch the ledge on their
ground. W. W. Warner has the contract.
The Sovereign and Madison companies intend to do some extensive and
systematic surface prospecting during
the snmmer.
Harris' Position on the Street
The council decided on Tuesday evening that the old street should remain as
it was unless the property holders on
Reco avenue donated land to widen it.
J. M. Harris now offers to give ten feet
off the front of his lots for this purpose
if the city will grade that part of it
along by the skating rink. As he owns
most of the property along the flume,
between the C. P. R. depot and Robt.
Cunning's lots, he calculates to open a
street there himself, whether the council
is willing to assist or not. THE PAYSTI1EAK,

Senator Sebastion, of Tennessee, tells
the  following'  story:    "When   I   wm*
young I was the must bashful boy west
of the Atleghanies.   I wouldn't look at
a g*irj, much less speak to a maiden; but
for all that I fell desperately In love

It was a desirable match on both sides,
and the old folks paw the drift and tixeil

time' drew   near,   and   shivered with
agony as 1 thought of the terrible m--

in a dazed, confused, mechanical sort of

bride retired, the family  "'one  to bed,
and I was le.lt with the old man.  "John ''

The possessor of wealth is generally
honored as a public benefaetor, and
while such honor may be deservedly or
undeservedly bestowed, the homage
paid rests on a confused conception of
the truth that the producer of wealth
must be a benefactor of the race. 'I hat
he who causes two blades of grass to
"���row where but one has grown before
is a benefactor of mankind is a widelv
recognised truth. The inventor the
direcjorand organizer of Industry the
writer of a successful work, all give
Value to a multitude of consumers.,
They  are great   producers,  and  the
wealth they obtain represent, great
service to others. But we have ,.sta|(
lished method! by which wealth Cm ���
obtained  without producing it.   An
wealth must be produced by the labor
of some individuals, and if anyone _|,.
tains wealth without adding to the mm
of the world's available store, it inil���t
be by unfairly depriving someone elu
of that which he has produced, The
distinction between making wealth and
gettlrg wealth that others have mid*
is not always maintained.

benefit of the cause.
Gentlemen of the Slocan, the case is in your hands.
You have heard the arguments put forth by the men who
ask your favor at the polling booth to-day. You have
heard the great questions of the day threshed out on the
political stump and you have read the expounding of every
doctrine through the press of the country. * You have seen
the efforts that have been made to deceive and delude you.
You understand the hallucinating promises that have been
scattered broadcast thruout the land. You have been told
the old, old story. The wolves in sheep's clothing of olden
times are before vou again as tbe bunco politicians ot to-
dav. The men who bribe with gold and the men who tie-
hide with sophistry and false promises are before you again
with the same glittering bribes and the same false promises
that have been used thruout the ages. Choose your friend.
Stand bv the man who has stood bv vou. Cast your ballot
in your own interest, which is the interest of your country.
m mm
Beware of the eleventh-hour apostle of the interests of the
workingman. Beware of the loud-mouthed professions of
conversions by men who were strangers in your camp during the dark days of trouble. Scan well the candidate who
calls himself "Conservative." His friends are not your
friends. His interests and his friends' interests are foreign
to your interests, and his love for your cause will lapse with
the setting of the sun. Analyse the causes which led him
and his people to try to rob you of your inalienable right to
the franchise. Think who furnishes the golden lubricant
to grease the chariot wheels of the "Business Man's'' machine. Reflect on the magnetism which drew him from a
comfortable office into the tangled arena of politics. Consider the reasons of his coming before you and the consequences annexed thereto if a majority of your ballots bear
the cross opposite the name of John Keen.
Think, on the other hand, of the folly of wandering
alone along the crooked, indefinite trail up which your
would-be friend of the Martin camp would lead you. Peruse
carefully the indefinite tracings on the location post with
which he would stake out a full claim on your friendship.
Assay well the surface showings on his prospect of success
and ascertain if George T. Kane, erstwhile enemy, is not a
designing friend. Shadow carefully through the davs of
the past the acts of his leader and ask yourselves if this is
the opportune moment in which to trust your fate in his
Turn again to your true friend of to-day and of every
day. Trace carefully bis record in the halls of legislation.
Ask yourselves if he has ever been untrue to the trust which
you placed in his hands two years ago. Search carefully
the flaws which his enemies would pick in his title to your
support and satisfy yourselves that his claim is valid. Consider the sacrifice of money and opportunity which he has
made for the good of the people and the uplifting of thev
who earn their bread thru honest toil. Weigh well the
service which your member has rendered and judge his
future in the light of the past. Stand by the man who
stood by you. Extend the glad hand of friendship to him
who you know to be your friend. Remember that your
verdict concerns not only you. Remember that the eves of
the province are on the Slocan to-day and that from the
vote of this camp to-day springs the  edict  on   which   the
THE following telegram has been handed \o Tin; pAV<
STREAK from the C.P. R. office.
Montreal, June 7. Mr. Clouston, Genera! Manager
of the Bank of Montreal, at the annual meeting ot' the cor-1
poration, made the following reference to British Columbia:!
"British Columbia has not shared the general prosperity to 1
the same extent as her sister provinces, owing to the effect j
of injudicious and inconsiderate legislation; this has created J
a feeling of distrust abroad and the influence oi foreign I
capital so nec^ssar) to the development oi her immense I
natural resources lias been seriously checked."
The message is not signed; is from no regular press I
association or news agency, and was deadheaded through!
bv the com pa n \.
This is just a sample of the work that is being carried I
Oil by the great railway, telegraph and bank monopolies al!
over Canada lo delude the unwary and defeat the efforts of I
men who would turn the search-light of common   sense en I
the monopolistic corporations which   are   sucking  the lite
blood out oi this fair Canada ot ours.
Manager Clouston is a heavy player in Canadian public life.    He overlooks no bets, and anxiet)   for the poor j
down-trodden stockholders who only draw 12 per cent, on 1
their Bank oi Montreal stock forces him to hand out a gold
brick to the people oi  B. C. o i the eve oi election.
The rapid growth ofcemmon sense ideas is alarming
to the millionaires who reap great wealth from franchises
which foolish governments have taken away from the peopk
and handed over to the monopolists. The banner ot freedom must be torn down and the leaders defeated or tlu
people will assert themselves and the reign oi tlie _,rra!U,r
will be brought to an untimely end.
Ihe agitation for gove: nineii railways, which has
started in Manitoba and B. C , is a m uter of alarm to such
men as Clouston. Once let the people become the successful managers of their own railways and the banks, insurance
concerns, telegraphs, telephones, etc., etc., will become adjuncts of the public railways and the postal svstem.
Thk Paystreak seldom finds common cause with
J. M. Harris, but in the matter of the street question we
believe his present stand is a fair one. We consider it a
regretable occurence that the city council could not find
some means of disposing of the difficulties in the wayol
making a new street. If Harris'efforts to put the stred
through prove successful, we believe he is therein benefitting the city. In the meantime he offers the cit\ ten feel
along his Reco Avenue property on fair term-, ft no��
lies with the members of the city council to size up to

Of the Slocan Riding of West
Kootenay Electoral District,
Having received the unanimous nomination of the Liberal Convention held
in Sandon on the iKth day of May,
iqoo, and deeming it to be absolutely
necessary in the interests of the people
of this Riding that there be elected a
Representative pledged to the principles
of Justice and Good Government and
working in accordance with the platform of the Honorable Joseph Martin,
as enunciated by him,   and   pledged to
the support of the Government and
believing that the interests of the toiling
masses are paramount to all others, I
do hereby pledge myself to advance and
protect the interests and rights of Labor
and to support the platform of the Hon.
Joseph Martin, which is published
below. But as the causes which led to
the insertion in the said platform of the
clause relating to the eight-hour law no
longer exist, the Hon. Joseph Martin
and his colleagues have now declared
that no such plebiscite shall be taken,
and in this I heartily concur. I therefore have the honor to solicit your votes
and influence.
Respectfully Submitted,
I am, Gentlemen, Yours Sincerely,
Geo. T. Kane.

about an amicable settlement. If no
settlement is reached the principle of
the referendum will be applied and a

ind in the various towns in this Killing, asking me to consent to contest this Constituency at the forthcoming Election, on the
oth June next in the interest of "good government," and, having been honored with a resolution of the Conservative Convention
I 1 l'itt Sandon on the 9th of May in which thev unanimously endorsed the selection of myself by the business men, miners and
rem ectora I have therefore, great pleasure in accepting the task of entering the field in the interest of "good government,"
nd promise, should 1 be elected, to do my duty as faithfully in the future, to the best interests of all the community, as I have
hi the past during my term of office as a Government official here.
The number of platforms before the Electors tit present  is  legion,   and   for that reason  I do not propose to add to
simplv sjiv that 1 agree with the platform of the Provincial Conservatives passed at New Westminster, and which has

Pour Feet of Glean Ore   Pound on
the Ruth Hill.
The best find that has been made this
summer wns that struck hy Mike Kerlin
early this week on the Mascot. Clean
lead ore from 2% to 4 feet wide has
been shown up on the Mascot ledge for
twenty feet, and is still continuing.
The Mascot and Sunrise claims were
the first locations on the Ruth Hill.
Mike Kerlin drove the stakes early in
the eventful year of '92 and, with his
partner, Alex Waddel, has held them
ever since. During the last few years
they have done considerable work on
the claims, and last June had the property bonded to George Alexander for
$7,500, but llie bond was thrown up as
nothing of value could be found.
The existence of ore in the locality
where it was found was not suspected
until a few days ago when Kerlin found
some heavy lead float which he followed
up with the fortunate result of a rich
discovery. Curious as it may seem, the
top of the ledge was shot off and ore
blown out by the graders on the Ivanhoe trail, but the incident was not
noticed at the time. The Mascot adjoins the Hope and the discovery was
made so close to the side line that it
will be necessary to survey to show
which claim the outcrop is in, but the
dip of the ledge carries it into the Mascot ground.
Kerlin has sent for his partner, who
is developing some copper claims of his
in the Kettle River country. When
Waddel arrives the probabilities are
that some extensive development will
be undertaken.
Brinsley Walton is deputy returning
officer for McGuigan and Angus J.
Macdonald for Whitewater. T. J.
Barron will have command of the polling booth in Sandon. Crawford's hall
will be the scene of hostilities.
Those 483 names which candidate
Fletcher and his conservative friends
tried to have struck off the Nelson list
have been restored by the superior
court. This makes it an easy thing for
John Houston.
There will be over 230   votes  polled
in Sandon today.    At  the  last election
there were 80 votes  for   Retallack and
Xi for   Green.      "Bob"  will   get    158
.   votes in Sandon today.
There are 2082 names on the voters'
list for the Slocan riding. Of these
between 500 and 600 are absent from
the district or dead. Of the remaining
1400 almost every one will vote. The
vote will be the largest ever polled in
the Slocan, and the largest percentage
of live votes ever polled in a B. C. electoral division.
