very sick with typhoid fever.
George Hamilton, an old man who
was sick and in destitute circumstances
in a shack in the lower end of town, was

"C. P. R. John," is suffering from
Pott's fracture. He will be out again
in a few days.
Frank Allen, E. Kellett, Ed. Cusick,
Thos Sirais, Roland Madden and
Henry Warren were discharged this
week.
There was a meeting of the city
council on Tuesday evening at which
the mayor and Aldermen Gomm,
Folliott and Cameron were present.
The minutes of the last meeting were
read and adopted. The following communications were presented :
From C. D. Hunter and E. R. Atherton, tendering their resignations as
aldermen.
From the governor-general thanking the council for message of condolence.
From the Sandon Water & Light
Company regarding water service.
From the mayor of Cumberland
acknowledging receipt of $50 for sufferers by the coal mine explosion.
From Smith Curtis asking the city
council's opinion of the new school bill.
From the deputy attorney-general
regarding the appointment of police
and license commissioners.
From E, M. Sandilands regarding
poll tax collected on the construction of
the flume which has not been turned in
to the government.
Smith Curtis' communication first
attracted the attention of the council
and the school bill was read. In the
past the maintenance of schools thruout the province has been provided for
by ihe prouincial government but the
new bill places the expense largely on
the cities. In the case of Sandon,
which would be rated 3rd class, the
provincial allowance under the new
order of things would be $800.    As the
Gone but not Forgotten.
J. M. Donnelley, promoter of the
Urban Mining Company and manager
of the Donnelley group of mines has
left town. He did not leave his address and his present whereabouts are
unknown. The affairs of the Urban
Mining Company are in a tangled state
and operations on the properties have
been suspended.
present expense sif conducting the
school is $2000, the city would have to
stand the difference. The new bill
also places the management of the
school entirely in the hands of three
trustees elected for the purpose. The
city council will have nothing to say
as tO how the money provided out of
the municipal funds should be expended
or as to what the limit shall be. The
city clerk was instructed to wire Smith
Curtis expressing the city council's disapproval of the bill.
The Sandon Water & Light Company's communication was next taken
up. Mr. Pills went into quite a
lengthy explanation in defence of his
actions in dealing with the company.
He said that there was no love lost
between himself and Mr. Harris, but
that that was not the reason why he
refused to attach his signature to the
contracts which had been  accepted   by
the city council.    He stated   that he
had been led to  believe that the S. W.
& L. Co. had  no water to   sell  to the
city.    He also stated that  the contract
had   no penalty  provision.    Later he
had found that the company had the
necessary   water   rights   and he   had
forthwith   signed   the   contract.      He
said that he had not signed the  vouchers because the   city   had  no   money.
The vouchers had  since been  signed.
He said that the deficit was due to the
fact  that J    M.   Harris   and   G.   M.
Sproat would not pay their taxes.    He
also explained  that the hydrants had
been   tested   and   only six    found   in
working order;   whereas the bill called
for eight.
The communication from E. M.
Sandilands referred to $150 collected
as poll tax from men employed on the
flume. The money was collected by
the city but iifver turned in. The receipts were furnished by Mr. Sandilands and the government agent has
given notice that he holds Mr. Sandilands personally responsible. The
matter was laid over as the city did
not have the necessary $159 on hand.
The resignations of Aldermen Hunter
and Atherton were accepted and the
offices declared vacant.
GENERAL   BUSINESS.
The mayor stated that a contract had
been signed with Wm. Walmsley for
the city scavenging.
In the matter of sending a delegate-
to Ottawa the council decided to take-
no action owing to stringency in civic
finances.
The chief of police was instructed to
procure the necessary tags and collect
the dog tax and road tax.
The city clerk was authorized to take
action to hold an election for two
aldermen to fill the places vacated by
E. R. Atherton and C. D. Hunter.
The nomination will be on April 1st
and election on April 4th. VV. H.
Lilly will be returning officer. Polling
to take place in the city hall.
The city clerk explained that he did
not steal a dollar on a coal account
which was published at $ib. The
price of the two tons of coal purchased
was $15, but a telegram had got mixed
up in the coal account which he had
neglected to mention in giving the
statements for publication, and the
additional dollar was thereby accounted
for. Mr. Pitts followed the city clerk
with a violent diatribade on newspapers
and newspaper men generally, which
would seem to indicate that he has
some antipathy toward the profession.
The city clerk was instructed to
write to R F. Green to find out if the
city could get an additional $2000 from
the provincial funds to complete the
flume down to Kootenay street.

I) THE PAYSTREAK, SANDON, B. C, MARCH 23,
PATRIOTISM os. TRUTH.
In his recent lecture on history in
Toronto University, Professor Wrong
declared that it was not the function of
the historian to teach patriotism, but to
teach the truth. The professor has
here all unwittingly given us an exceedingly instructive description of
patriotism���at least of those phases of
it which are most conspicuous today.
Such patriotism is contrary to truth, in
fact it is indeed a lie, nothing more nor
less. It is a crime against humanity,
against civilization, against Christianity
against the Diety Himself, who made
of one blood all nations upon the earth
to dwell therein, who forbade men to
think more highly than they ought to
think, to kill or to steal, to bear false
witness against their neighbor, or to
covet anything that is his.
Patriotism, in the ordinary sense
teaches men to do exactly all these forbidden things. It teaches men to be
arrogant boastful, and vain-glorious
about what they call their country,
which in reality means only themselves.
It teaches men to slander most outrageously any other nation witrfi whom their
rulers may have any disagreements. It
teaches them to covet the territories of
other nations, to take these territories
and to kill the former inhabitants for
resisting. The wickedness of this process of slandering and coveting and
stealing and killing it Iries to cover up
by various high sounding names such
as serving our country, defending our
empire, upholding the dignity of our
nation, developing the resources of a
country, extending the area of civilization and Christianity, and various other
pleasant phrases which are made to do
the devil's work in confounding the
thots of men.
Patriotism blinds the judgment while
it  debases   the   morals.      Clergymen,
the professional advocates of truth and
righteousness, the   professed   followers
ofthe Prince  of  Peace,  become so besotted by patriotiosm that   they dare to
glorify aggressive   war  and call down
the blessings of Almighty God on plunder and slaughter.    Judges and lawyers
whose  especial   business  it is to maintain the rights of man to their property
and their liberty, are  shamefully silent
or eloquent in approbation.    When the
nation  launches   out   on   a   career of
tyranny   and   plunder,    professors   in
colleges and   teachers   in   schools,   to
their everlasting   blame,   join   in   the
cry���blind leaders  of the   blind,   who
should have tot men  truth so well that
never more would   they   desolate   the
earth with way.    Day by day unscrupulous   journalists  stir up   the people to
frenzy   till the   whole   nation, like the
fiend-possessed  swine of Galilee,   run
down   a   steep   place   into   the sea of
national disgrace and ruin.
For in the long run nations reap
what they have sown. If they sow the
wind they must reap the whirlwind.
There is no escape from the eternal
decree. There is a power that makes
the righteousness in the affairs of men,
it matters not whether we call it Destiny
or Diety. They that take the sword
must perish with the sword. It may
take a long time to work out, but
sooner or later nations meet the due
reward of their deeds. Where now
are Assyria and Persia and Macedonia
and Rome? Nebuchadnezzar, Darius,
Alexander the Great and Augustus
Caesar all had a vaster empire than
had been ; they all declared with vainglorious arrogance that what they had
they would hold. But now their
palaces and their empires are alike in
ruins, the glory of their boastings is a
a tale that has heen told ; there was no
soundness in them. What has been
will be. Britain will find, as these
nations found, and she is finding already, that size of army and volume of
trade are no guarantee of national
stability and permanence. It is only
righteousness that exalteth a nation.
They Do Business Right.
The Cooks' and Waiters Union of
Phoenix is conducting its affairs in a
manner that cannot fail to win the admiration and assistance of employers of
culinary mechanics. In that town a
cook is compelled to give his employer
a week's notice before leaving, otherwise he must pay one week's wages to
the union. This protects the employer
against loss and much inconvenience.
A few days ago a Chinese cook was
brot in on a boarding car. He became
dissatisfied and quit without a moment's
notice, placing his employers' in a
rather awkward position. It was then
that the Phoenix union came to the
assistance of tlie railway people, supplying a cook who is bound to give
notice of his intention to quit or sacrifice
a portion of his salary. This is a move
in the right direction and one that
could be easily followed by like unions
in other camps in the Kootenays. By
protecting your employer you protect
yourself and such acts will do much
towards removing that undesirable
competition that is the bane of British
Columbia labor at present. There is
no Chinese or Japanese competition in
Phoenix, aud as long as the unions continue to act in lhat straitforward manner it is needless to say there will not
be.

And when the streams were low
They had to slop lhe mills and wail
For Cod's good rain to fall,
And yet they proudly went about
[With heads held high and chests pushed out
And thot they knew it all.

How could the Ottawa Journal be
charmed by the glitter sif Sir Wilfred
Laurier's false and shallow analogy
between the position sif ihe Uitlanders
ot the Transvaal and the position ofthe
Japanese in British'Columbia ?
The Japanese are nol like the I'it-
landers���a majority. They are not
like the Uitlanders .vere���subjects of a
power which freely gives to foreigners
the citizenship which the Japanese
claim from Canada.
Canada has everything to lose by the
upbuilding of an Asiatic community in
British Columbia. There is no citizenship for Canadians in Japan and there
should be no citizenship for Japanese in
Canada. The experience of tho states
in the Australian Commonwealth,which
have rigorously excluded Asiatics, supplies a lesson which Canada should not
neglect.

SANDON, MARCH 23 iqoi.
There are a number of items connected with the lead refining bonus
propaganda which seem to have been
overlooked by the parties mosl anxious
to have the government place a bounty
on the production of refined lead. For
instance, the most reliable statistics
available seem to show that the total
annual production of lead in British
Columbia is 17,000 tons or thereabout.
Outside of B.C. there is little lead produced in Canada. There is a zinc-
lead producer working near Schriber,
which shipped 7000 tons of ore to
Belgium last  vear.    A  few  desultory
o - 0
efforts at galena mining are being
made in Frontenac county, Ont., and
in Cape Breton, but the production is
insignificant. Assuming that the B. C.
output represents the Canadian production, and supposing that the Dominion government granted the $5 a
ton bonus for three vears, we find that
the refinery would receive $tS5,ooo a
year, or a total of $255,000 for the
three years. This, of course, is assuming that the refinery treated the whole
production, which the agitators for a
bonus confidently expect it would.
Now, Gooderham & Blackstock,
in making their request for a bonus,
stated that the outlay for a refinery
would be $250,000. Taking them at
their word and supposing that the output should remain stationery, we find
that the government, by paying a $5
bonus, would be practically giving
these gentlemen a refinery and $5000
cash on condition that they operated
the refinery in their own interests and
put the cash in their pockets.
Having secured the bonus, Gooderham & Blackstock would natural ly
follow their hand and get a high protective duty placed on lead products,
which would give them control of the
Canadian lead market at an artificial
price. This would be happy for Gooderham & Blackstock, but there is no
guarantee that the mine owners of the
Slocan would share in either the bonus
or the profits of protection. In fact,
there is no reason to assume that
Gooderham & Blackstock would be
any more lenient than the American
smelter trust or any other concern of
the kind. Business is business and
patriotism is nowhere with  people like
these, and while the country was being
taxed both ways to keep the refinery
smoking, there is no assurance that
the mine owner would not be assessed
to the limit for treatment, just as he
always has been in the past. The
refinery would, of course, be located
north of the 49th parallel, but this is a
mere matter of sentiment which really
cuts no ice with the mine owner.
It is also an absolute moral certainty that if ever the Canadian refinery
gets big enuf to be troublesome to
them the American smeltermen will
buy it out, and the bonus originally
intended to build up the Canadian
industry will be transmitted to the
wallet of the American combine. Or
worse still: the refinery may be closed
down.
This is what is happening already
in the iron industry, which the Dominion government is bonusing to a fare-
thee-well. The Whitney syndicate,
which, so Finance Minister Fielding
says, will pull $8,500,000 out of government funds during the next seven
years, has been acquired by Morgan's
billion dollar syndicate. This Cape
Breton establishment was big enuf to
threaten trouble for the trust magnates
and they gathered it in. It remains to
be seen whether it will suit the purpose
of these gentleman to keep the Sydney
works running or close them down
and kill the camp. The same thing
will happen in the case of tlie lead refinery, and when the Gooderham cc
Blackstock refinery does finally pass
into the hands of the American combine this country will be in worse
shape than ever.
From   the   mine owners' point of
view there is only one obvious permanent advantage in a Canadian   refinery
the possibility of quick returns.     But
quick returns is   not the case in point.
It seems, therefore, that the
boards of trade, citizens committees,
etc., which have decided to request a
bonus for Gooderham tS_ Blackstock,
or whoever does the refining, have
acted without due consideration.
Judging from where we sit it
appears that the public will be asked to
pay for the refinery but that the mine
owners will not be guaranteed any advantage. Seeing that the government
must eventually shoulder the cost of
building the refinery it seems childish
to donate it to whoever comes along,
without some bargain as to rates and
some assurance that it will not pass
into the hands of the combine.
If the delegation which goes to
Ottawa would cut out the bonus proposition and make a request that the
government build a refinery in Kaslo,
Trail, Nelson or some other central
point and either operate it under government   control   or   lease   it   to the
parties who will guarantee the lowest
rates to producers, it would he askiim
something logical.
A government-owned refinery
either under governmental control or
leased, could not be acquired by the
American smelter combine.
The government will have to start
a mint somewhere in Canada in the
immediate future and there is no logical
reason why it should not run a refinery
as well. And, SO far as that part of it
is concerned, the ,$85,000 a year which
the refinery hopes to secure as a bonus
would pay interest on nearly ��S;>,ooo,-
000 more money than is invested in
active B. C. smelters altogether; so
that the Dominion could afford to own
and operate without a dollar's profit
for three years even* smelter in the
Province as it could afford to stake
Gooderham cv Blackstock to a $5 a
ton bonus.
The labor party of Montreal has
registered a kick against spending city
money to entertain  royalty.    The city
council voted ,S 10,000 to give the Duke
of Cornwall a hot time when he lands
in that city. The labor part}* tails to
see the philosophy of throwing awa\
good money on fire-works and a boozo-
logical carnival while there is all kinds
of need for public libraries, homes for
incurables, hospitals and other useful
municipal institutions. The Federated
Trades and Labor Council suggests
that the rich folks of Montreal be given
an opportunity to demonstrate their
loyalty by putting up the price ot the
Cornwall blow-out, and has petitioned
the government to deprive the city
council of power to vote money for such
purposes.
This is the first trace of sank) we
have noticed in .Montreal for some
time. It is certainly nauseating to
observe the flunkevism exhibited on
this Cornwall business bv men who
should know better. Cornwall is no
doubt a nice young man and he would
probably look well in a photograph,
hut he has not yet displayed surface
showings of science or ability lh'11
should make him the object of adoration on the part ol" the mob. Simply
because he was dragged up in tin'
shadow of a throne is no excuse for
obsequiousness in free born Canadians.
There is no room in a democratic country like this for cringing, senile, servility, and the labor council of Montreal
is on the right trail when it places the
brand of disapproval on such absurd
demonstrations to royalty. II' Cornwall wants to tour Canada no one will
stop him, but there is no reason why
folks should make a tin angel of him
because his pedigree can be traced to
William the Conqueror or some other
ancient cut-throat. THE PAYSTREAK, SANDON, B. C, MARCH 23,

MINERAL  PRODUCTION   OF B. C.
Greater than  that of All the Rest
of Canada.
From the returns of the mineral production of the Province of British Columbia for the year 1900, submitted 10
the legislature by the provincial minister of mines it is gathered that there
was during the year an increase in llie
value of the output of lode mines of the
province of $3,310,4*8 anda decrease
in that of placer gold of $66,167, leaving a net increase on metallic minerals
for the year of 3,244,252. There was
also an increase of $1,013,238 in the
value of the coal and coke produced.
No returns are yet available of the
value of other non-metallic minerals, so
these cennot now be taken into account.
The foregoing figures exhibit practically last year's net increase, which was
$4,257,490, as shown in detail in the
following table :

As the output of coal in British
Columbia is rapidly increasing and attention is now being directed to its iron
deposits, it appears as tho it will not be
long before the mineral production of
the province will be greater, not only
in the total, as at present, but as well
in all the individual minerals (except
nickel and platinum) than that ofthe
larger area of the Dominion lying east
of the Rocky Mountains.

The total mineral production of the

Lode gold    12,810,546
Silver    i3-��35-7��8

The number of tons of  metallic ore
mined in   the   province in   1899   was
���287.343 and in i9���� .'554.796, the increase for the last year having been
267,453 tons. The respective increases
for 1900 over 1898 were : In quantity
of metallic ore mined 338,852 tons, and
in value of metallic minerals, coal and
coke, $5,652,284, the latter being an
increase of more than 50 per cent,
The figures of the whole of Canada
for the year 1900 are not yet available
but those for 1899, given in the following
table, will serve to show the very important position the part of the Dominion lying west of the Rocky Mountains occupies in regard to Canada's
total production in 18993s compared
with  that situate east ofthe Rockies
It will be seen that the total value of
metallic minerals, coal and coke produced in British Columbia and the
Yukon was $28,150,155 as against
$10,073,642 for the remainder of the
Dominion:
