This marks another epoch in the history of Sandon.
Bar silver is 56^ cents and lead

number. We are always on the lookout for something soft, even if it is
slightly on the pork.
Nelson Tribune,���It is reported that
the recent inspection of the coal lands
of the Similkameen Valley Coal Company by William Blakemore for intending Toronto purchasers was in every
way satisfactory and will lead to the
closing of the deal which has been
hung up for some time until the property could be examined. The bulk of
the shareholders in the syndicate are
Nelson men and they stand to make
enough out of the sale to the Toronto
people to put them even with their expenditures to date and leave them the
rest of their holdings to the good. The
first payment to be made upon the purchase is s^id to be $2500.
J. Roderick Robertson, president of
the Mine owners' Association has issued
a circular letter to members of the
Mine Owners the association requesting
them to meet in Nelson on the 4th of
December, at which meeting a definite
proposition to build a refinery will be
submitted.
It is not known what j. Roderick's
proposition to the association will be,
but it is understood that a company is
to be organized for the purpose of
building a lead refinery in Nelson, in
which company mine owners will be
the stock holders. This proposition
was advanced about a year ago but at
that time the C. P. R. made representations which caused it to be shelved.
Also the Gooderham-Blackstock people
were credited with an intention of
engaging in the smelting and refining
business. As neither of these concerns
have shown any disposition to move the
proposition is being revived and may
be carried thru. The meeting on the
4th of December will be awaited with
considerable interest.-

A bad accident occurred at the Payne

and John Faller were working in the
winze from the No. 5 and had just gone
on shift when Milter picked into a
missed hole and an explosion occurred.
Miller was terribly lacerated about the
head and face by the discharge and is
not expected to live, altho he is at the

Don't Forget to Register.
There is jnst one more week in which
parties who desire a vote at the municipal election may register their names
on the civic voters' list. All who want
to vote should see to it that their names
are incorporated on the list. Householders, property owners, persons paying business tax and those paying $60
a year rent are entitled to vote. Under
the latter head are included roomers at

with it thru all its flats and sharps
u ntil the final tremelo struck. it a few
months ago.. At the time of the break
down there was a little discord and Mr.
Trinery claimed that the band owed
him money for services rendered, and
to secure this amount he retained possession of an instrument which was in
his hands. Mr. Trinery has since resided irr New Denver and when he
came up to Sandon last Saturday evening he was placed under arrest. The
case was brot up Monday and remanded until Wednesday evening. At the
trial there was considerable "chewing
the rag," but the result of it was that
tho prosecution was withdrawn and
the prisoner discharged. Tlie mayor
has since issued notice that all band
instruments must be returned to the
president of the band within 30 days.
THE PAYNE MILL
Material and Machinery Arrioing.
Grading About Completes.
Material for the Payne mill commenced to arrive on Sunday last over
the C. P. R. and has been coming in at
the rate of two cars a day ever since.
Folliott &. McMillan, the contractors,
are storing the machinery on the lot
just below the K. &. S. depot and are
piling the timber along the Cody
Avenue switch.
Grading at the mill site is nearly
completed. The slide which occurred
last week did not do any particular
damage and in a way was an advantage as it might have caused complications by occuring at a later date. Construction work on the foundation will
be commenced in a few days.

the Payne mine and now with the
Rambler-Cariboo company, and Miss

'ii THE PAYSTREAK, SANDON, B. C, NOVEMBER 23,
Ansurcred all Requirements.
"Don't know whether it is new or
not. 1 heard it down at Johnstown,"
said the man who recently returned
from that place. "Thare is a rich
widow living just outside the town," he
continued, "and after several elderly
gentlemen had vainly endeavored to
lure her into martimony again a report
gained circulation that she was a
regular man-hater."
"Finally, a wealthy widower, carrying with him the evidences of good
living and heartiness that seek congenial companionship, visited the town
and was soon after a caller on the intractable widow. After he thot sufficient advancement had been made to
justify a proposal, he proceeded to feel
his way.
" 'Beautiful home you have here.'
" 'Yes, I enjoy it.'
" 'Fine outlook, fine irees^fine all
round. But there is one thing lacking.'
" 'Yes?'
" 'It is an Adamless Eden, don't you
know. You are so good in everything
else that I should think you would be
glad to share these blessings with a
husband.'
" 'Are you proposing, sir ?'
" 'In a tentative way. If vou can
be convinced that you should have a
husband, 1 should like  to be lhe man.'
" 'Husband ! I have a gardener
who smokes and drinks, 1 have a parrot
that swears like a pirate and I have a
cat that stays out all night. What in
the world do I want with a husbaed ?' "
He Carried Samples
A clergyman who was very fond oi
spices carried a bottle of curry for use
when on his travles. One day, while
dining in a New York hotel a Yankee entered, and taking a seat beside
the clergyman, proceeded to help himself to the good things around.
At once the curry bottle caught his
eye and he was preparing lo explore its
interior when the cleric interposed.
"Excuse me, sir, that is my private
bottle ; but pray help yourself."
The stranger thanked him, and
assisted himself to a good helping.
When he had tasted it once or twice, he
turned to the clergyman and said :
"I sav, stranger, air yew a parson ?"
"Yes."
"Do you believe in hell fire, eternal
punishment, and all that sort o'
thing ?"
"Certainly," replied  the  clergyman.
"Well, I guess yew air the first parson I've met that carried samples of
his belief."
Philosophtj o�� Municipal Ovcnership.
When some one advocates municipal ownership, the agent and attorneys
for the corporations begin to weep at
the great debt that it will create on the
dear people���just as though the corporations were letting the people use their
capital without interest ! All capital in
vested in plants is a debt on the people, |
whether the capital is real  investment
or water.    It   is a   debt on   which the j

THK PAYSTREAK, SANDON, B. C, NOVEMBER 23,
MARRIAGE AS A FINE ART
(From The Seattle Standard.)
In oiw of the British Reviews there
recently appeared an ankle written by
Laura Cameron on the comprehensive
subject : "How to Marry Rationally,
and How Not to Tire of Kadi Other
When Married." The basis of her
argument is that love should begin at
the head and go down to the heart,
and not begin at the heels during some
dance and ooze out at the court house,
���is it often does in Seattle. She thinks
there would then be more emotion and
less ennui. When Laura has nine
children on his hands and a mortgage
to help to pay up, she will not have
time to write���even to the folks.
Hut let us follow her and put the
searching light oi reasoning on her
deductions, Laura is all right in
theory, but the vein pinches out or runs
into lhe foot wall when it comes down
to real development work. Take Adam,
for instance. We might take the experience oi others, for instance ; but in
v'kv oi the hot-hendedness of some
people we know under the microscope,
it seems much safer to take Adam.
He is not likely to Hare up and knock
u> piz/de-end Upwards, as so many have
threatened to do. Adam, if we can
believe all we hear, is dead.
Now, if Adam's little  love affair hail
been based  on  the highly  intellectual
order which   Laura   speaks   about, he
would have tramped around the whole
township,   attending   all   the    dances,
candy pulls, church sociables, etc., and
cottoned up to some  girl with an intellectual peak high enuf to flag  a flying
machine with.      Then he  would    have
hooked   onto   her   like   a   barbed wire
tence to   a   picnic   girl.     If there had
been more profound  reasoning and less
emotion in Adam's wooing,   he  would
have gotten hold oi a   companion who
knew how to ride a  bicycle   and repeat
a few bars  of  Browning with her eyes
shut.    She wouldn't have gone out into
an orchard   and   eaten   an  apple, skin
;md all,   without   first   consulting the
Ladies'   Home   Journal.     She   would
have known that it is quite injudicious
to eat pungent fruit of any kind before
partaking of a Sarah  Tyson Rorer six-
bit breakfast of clams, chops, chicken
combs and chopped feed.
If Eve had reached high C in the
intellectual gamut, she would have
sent east and had her clothes made by
a tailor, instead of carrying around a
standing invitation to ehillblains to
come and roost in her losies, like a
white-washed castiron goddess m front
of a statehouse with towering cupalo
;md a stated indebtedness. She would
have filled the front room with mottoes,
"Remember the Maine," and used up
a lot of good window blind print in
marking sub-marine daisies on the
window sills, instead of raising bread
and children with one hand and renting "furnished  rooms" with the other.
There are quite a number oi things
Eve would have done differently if she
had been sent to some tin  de side sem-1 together and are,;

inary and stuffed full of sentimental
symphony, but when it came to paying
rent out of $50 a month salary she
would have had nervous prostration
and gone back to Nebraska on the
farm.
It is all right for Laura to talk about
courtship and marriage based on intellectual tastes and aims, or a similarity of training and ideals, but the
good old way will prevail.
Jane Carlyle wasn't up with her
liege lord on some of his complex philosophical dreams, but she could throw
a cup of coffee at   him   with unerring
aim when he got too gay. She made
good coffee   too, and  that   had   more
weight with him than her knowledge
of classics. In short, she had a striking way about her that caught him,
notwithstanding that he used to growl
and grumble because her independence
of thot did not run on the same right of
way with his.
Since the lime oi Marc Antony to the
present there have been men who, after , aMMM-M>_��-M-w-��-��i
they got married and found that they j reaize that [they wouldn't have amount-
could not spend all the money they l ed to shucks if they had remained

ideals," but the general public has been

Young is to the point. He spent a
good part of a long life in trying to
make a matrimonial alliance with all
the women in Utah, in his anxiety to
mate with his ideal. Only death cut
down his hopes. He was making
good progress, however. Immigration was a little too swift for him, but
be kept up a hot pace. Once he paused
in his chase after the ideal whom he
thot might possibly till the bill. She
threw the sewing machine at him.
But when she made him get up at
night to light the alcohol lamp to heat
baby's milk with, he struck off madly
down the road to hunt for another
wife with higher ideals.
The world has been wiggling along
for several years in the good old way,
as far as marriage is concerned. A
whole lot of men get married, strike it
rich in Alaska, and then wish they
hadn't ; while a whole   lot are   joined
it, for   they
up a sickly salary for neckties and
yellow shoes, trying to appear blooded
on a five cent beer income. Laura
may think she knows how marriage
ought to be accomplished, but our advice is for her first to try her experiment on some Indian reservation where
squaw men marry for the annuities
there are in it.

James J. Hill has tripped over a
live wire with his Northern Securities
proposition. Just on the eve of realizing his life's sweet dream oi consolida-
tinir all the railroads in the north
western states into one concern which
he would control, Hill has once more
found himself np against the State of
Minnesota. The phlegmatic but surefooted Scandinavian element oi the
northern state fail to notice the beauty
of Hill's community of interests and
Governor Van Sant has declared his
intention to block the deal with the
legal machinery of the state oi Minnesota. And furthermore the governor
declares that if the laws now on the
statute books of his state are not
sufficient to side-track Hill's scheme
Minnesota will pass laws that will.
This is the second occasion on
which the granger element of Minnesota have applied the air to James J.
Hill. The first was in '93, when the
N. P. went broke thru official pillaging in which every employee on the
road from section boss to superintendent took a hand. At that time Hill
offered to guarantee everything, take
over the road and combine it with the
Great Northern, but Minnesota's antitrust law flagged him and the deal was
off. Then the United States erovern-
ment took the N. P. over, placed it in
the hands of a receiver, ran it until it
paid its way out and then returned it
as a dividend-payer to the stockholders
who had wrecked it. Next came Hill's
community oi interests scheme and the
thousand-dollar-a-share drama on Wall
street. Now Hill has everything
fixed for his consolidation except the
grangers of Minnesota, who will not
stand for any proposition calculated to suspend competition in their
state.
With all due respect to the good
intentions of Governor "Van Sant, he
and his grangers are undoubtedly
backing up with their legislation.
Competition between the Great Northern and the Northern Pacific has been
a dead-letter ever since the receivers
let go of it, and^the idea that knocking
Hill's deal will promote competition is
childish in its simplicity. Van Sant
might better let Hill consolidate and
then, with only one  company to  deal
with, he could alway locate his man.
When ever Hill jumped freight rates
up Van Sant could raise taxes on the
road, and when Hill came to the legislature for more franchises Van Sant
could demand concessions which would
apply   to   every   mile oi   road in  the
system.
The idea of trying to block consolidation is puerile. Consolidation
follows competition as naturally as day
follows night, and in his consolidation
Hill is surveying the air line to government ownership, which will follow
solidation as naturally as consolidation
follows competition. Government
ownership is coming faster than the
community oi interests came, and Hill
is running the kindergarten which is
teaching the people that monopolies
must be public property. Van Sant
and his granger element are doing the
same thins: today that the weavers in
England did when they wrecked the
power loom and the spinning jenny.
up the Victoria Post lady wa are glad
of it, for the Post is a, flunkey too and
is industriously working to separate
the province from a million cold, for
the benefit of the V. V. & K. conspir-
itors. And we are open to say right
here that, considering grafting as a
science, Eberts and McBride and S.
Curtis and the Victoria Post are good
at their job, for they are certainly the
most conscienceless and energetic outfit of grafters that ever happened since
hell was let loose for recess.
The Victoria Post is edited by
a woman.    She says The Paystreak is
libelous. This is probably true. We
are not up on the legal phases oi the
thine, but as near as we can get to
understand the libel law it is tor the
purpose of preventing newspapers from
publishing obvious truths unless they
can be proven to the satisfaction' ot
some fossolized technicality-loving
judge. This is manifestly an absurd
proposition and by the same token is
morally wrong. Eor intsance, that
once prominent African evangalist,
Rev. John Jasper, preached that ude
sun do move, founding his faith on
the fact that Mr. Joshua on the occasion of a bi^ fight several years ago bid
that important luminary to stand still.
Now, any newspaperman who exhibited such temerity as to call John J. a
single-handed liar would thereby lay
himself open to a suit for libel. Nevertheless the sun don't move around the
earth as John Jasper so devoutly contended, and everybody knows it, but if
the morning cocktail oi the Post lady
depended on her ability to demonstrate
this astronomical axiom there would
probably be a frightful aridity in the
region of our fair (or possibly redheaded) contemporary's larynx.
There is one safe way, however,
in which the newspaper man can set it
right with himself, altho it is not
usually admitted as evidence. If he
touches a sore spot the victim jumps.
We like to touch men in a sore spot.
Next to stud poker it is our favorite
pastime ; especially in case oi men
like McBride and Eberts and Smith
Curtis���big mit men and grafters who
are willing to act the flunkey to a
bonus-seeking corporation, for a consideration.      If   we incidentally touch
According to the San Francisco
Call, a paper thoroly reliable in its unreliability! a plot has been unearthed
in Dawson and Skagway to run the
Dominion and U. S. officials out oi
the country and establish a republic.
This conspiracy undoubtedly originated
in the diseased imagination oi some
batty reporter, but it represents the
extremes to which the western country
may be driven in the near future.
Dawson City's particular grievances are a corrupt officialism and a
taxation without representation. Compared to the Klondikers, the Uidanders had not the shadow oi a case.
But British Columbia has a worse
case than the Klondike. This province has been given a local legislature
of thirty-nine men to make laws and
then inflicted with an Imperial reason
which sets its laws aside. Imperial
reasons which h\ooi\ B. C. with Japs
and Chinamen will not do much to
promote loyalty to the Empire, and
unless the Imperial and Dominion
governments Dan see their way clear to
let us make our own laws we will have
io make laws in spite oi them. This
is sedition, privy conspiricy and rebellion, but it is also a sure cure for
the yellow plague which is devastating
this province. The San Francisco
Call had better keep its report standing, for it may come in handy soon to
apply to B. C.
British Columbia has more latent
resources, more natural wealth and
possibilities of grater development man
Japan and Great Britain combine,!, and
it must not be made a colony ot Japan
to suit the convenience of Great Britain.
This should be a land oi happy homes,
not a second edition oi coolie Asia,
with its peon labor, pestilence and
darkness. If Great Britain, for Imperial reasons, wants the Mongolian she
is welcome to him, with his leprosy,
plague and filth, but B. G. will keep
him out at any price.
Coast politicians have just discovered that Joe Martin holds the lite 01
the present government in his hand.
This is the same Joe Martin who was
recently dead.

FIXACIAL STATEMENT
OF the Sandon  Rinh Company for
The Current Year.
The following statement of lhe San-
Jon Rink Company shows that the corporation is In a very healthy condition.
Tlie nel returns from stock, as will be
seen, were only $0^0 2$ WWl the company has to represent this an asset,
over and above every liability, of
$1392.75, showing a net profit on last
winter's operations of $456.50.
In this statement no account is taken
of the appreciation in value of real
estate, which is undoubtedly greater
than lhe indicated profit neither are the
enlargements and improvements to the
building counted in, altho these are
recorded in the expenditure. No receipts for this year are included in the
returns, as no tickets have yet been
issued.
While the business transacted by the
company last year was highly satisfactory to the stockholders, there is
every reason to believe that the season
1901-1002 will show even a better
profit, as the season will be much
longer. Last year the rink was not
opened until New Year's day and the
season was not under full suing until
the middle of January. This year,
weather permitting, the rink will be
open on December 1st.
It is therefore easily seen that stock
in the Sandon Rink Company, which
was purchased originally by citizens
merely to secure a place of winter
amusement, has turned out 10 be not
the dead loss which was anticipated,
but a good investment. A few more
shares will be sold to liquidate the
floating debt, most of which was contracted on improvement account.
After this the stock books will be closed
and the concert left to pay off the loan
out of the profits, which it should do in
two rears, or even sooner if business
livens up. When this is done the com-
panv will have a property worth at
least $5000 for a total outlay of about
$1500. That is good business. The

With   good    Fuse,   good   Caps   and
good Powder there is   little   danger   toj
the Miner.    There   is   no   fuse   in tin-
Market that has proved itself so safe as j
the   Bennett   Crown  Brand   Fuse, and
with   the    Bennett     Caps   and   Giant
Powder  the   Combination   is   perfect.

THB  WISEST  SWEED   IN  NOME.
Sum C. Ouabain in Notn.�� Nugget,
LgRi year when the fever for staking
K iged hotly on Tundra and creek,
I fled foi my life, and  while   breaking
The trail to a far distant peak
To Slake lor my health on lhe summit,
1 mushed up a canyon that feeds
The unions, rich coveted placers
Discovered and staked by the Swedes
\s Fai as the eyesight could travel ���
From lhe  head  of the   creek to its
lakes,
To lhe sky-reaching rim of its gravel���
There   was   nothing  but silence and
stakes ;
For the ^old which God in his goodness
H.td placed there to make the Swedes
glad,
Lay de/p neath a godless injunction
Which covered the claims they'once
had.
I mushed up the cunyon as quickly
As a musher like me   could proceed,
Till I came to a claim where .1 sickly
Bui     exceedingly     square-headed
Swede
U'.in rapidly rocking a rocker
With a skilltul and miner- like twist,
Which yielded each  clean-up a   panful
Ol nuggets as big as your list.
The claim had been staked to perfection
As even a novice could see,
Foi it bristled in every direction
With stakes ihat were   tail as a tree.
It looked like a hop field   in   autumn���
No jumper would ever presume
lo make an attempt at pre-emption.
For the landscape presented no room
I marveled whv Ba k-room injunction,
I'lie servant of organized Greed���
His H mor's most fraudulent function���
Had never injuncted this Swede ;
And I asked him to tell   me   the   secret
Of how he had managed to keep
His claim from the clutch oi the lawyers
And all its great benefits reap.
He clinied up and sat down beside me,
On a big pile of well-sharpened stakes
And he calmly but searchingly eyed me
With   the care   that  a   mind-reader
takes ;
I hen he leaned with an air confidential
Till his whiskers reposed on my cheek
And with a    smile that    was placid    he
whispered :

MINING FLOAT.
There has1 receatly been quite a rise
in the price of asbestos and it is not
likely that there will be a fall soon. A
lire last year in the principal asbestos
mine in Canada cut down the supply
several thousand tons. Last year about
50 per cent more asbestos was used
than in the previous year. Most of the
asbestos used came from Canadian
mines, as that which is mined in Italy
and other places in Europe is too brittle
for ordinary purposes. It is already
known that there is considerable asbestos in Kootenay. It is a mineral which
is unaffected, and is a veriety of hornblende oyroxene, occuring in long,
delicate or fibrous masses or seams,
usually of white or grey color, but
sometimes greenish or reddish. The
finer varieties have been wrought into
gloves and cloth, which are incombustible. Asbestos cloth was formerly-
used as a shroud for dead bodies and
for firemen's clothes and drop curtains
in theatres. Large quantities of the
metal is now used as a covering for
steam pipes as it is a non-conductor of
heat. Prospectors should be on the
lookout for deposits of this peculiar
mineral as a good mine of it is of con-
siberable value.���Miner.

The Granby company, .will, have a
steam shovel working in the glory
hole at the Old Ironsides by the 1st of
December. The shovel, which is being
made in Marion, Ohio, will load a car
every five minutes. This will bean
important economy in handling the
low grade Boundary ore.
The machinery for the McCrossan
smelter, which is to be built in Ferguson is being hauled up the road to the
payroll centre. It will be a 50 ton
stack and the builders say they can
give rates to Lardeau producers which
will save all the long haul freight
charges.
The average yield of the ore crushed
at the famous Treadwell mine in
Alaska, is only $1.88 of gold per ton.
The cost of production is'$1.05, leaving a profit of 83-cents per ton. Scientific handling will squeeze a profit out
of pretty low grade stuff in the free
milling variety.
The International Mining Congress
may not be held in Butte, Mont., in
1902. It is required that Butte raise
about $10,000 to entertain the delegate^ and failure to do this would be
reason for sending it to Los Angeles,
.which was the second choice of the
late meeting of the, Congress at Boise,
Idaho.. ��� -' ���      >..    '
