and sustaining the decision ofthe lower
court. The White company will now
appeal the case to the supreme court of
Canada.
"Red Paddy" Whitley will leave on
Monday for the head of Kettle River to
do some work on his property there.
About two years ago Paddy lotated a
gold ledge in that country which is
marvellously rich. Before he had an
opportunity to do much work on his
property he was seized with an affection
of the brain which confined him to the
Westminster asylum. He intends putting in several months in that region
this summer and will show the property
up to the best of his ability. Eri
Thompson holds a half interest with
him in the claim.
The owners of the Hewett mine are
figuring on putting in a tramway.
The Hewett is now the banner property
of Four Mile, and Silverton people

arena of prosperity. The claim is developed 450 feet deep and shows four
feet of dry ore that averages $50 to the
ton. A freight and treatment rate of
$7.50 a ton has been secured from the
Hall Mines smelter. The property
belongs to a Spokane syndicate and
is not stocked.
Wilkie Mackenzie begs us to express
his thanks for the handsome presentation made to him by his many friends
on the occasion of his return from
South Africa. He will leave this morning for Republic, Wash., to meet a
comrade in arms, Major Leckie, who
was also with the Strathconas. As ho
will nol have an opportunity to meet
all of his friends he takes this manner
of expressing his appreciation. Wilkie
is a modest hero and wears his honors
lightly. He says that Africa is a grand
country ; one with a beautiful climate,
vast resources and enormous possibilities, and it is his intention to return to
the Dark Continent at a later date.
The Delegation to Ottawa.
The delegates who will go to Ottawa
to obtain encouragement for the lead
refining industry hope to leave about
Wednesday, going by the Crow's Nest
route and the North Shore and returning by the Soo line. There will be
three delegates from Sandon representing the Association, Messrs. Heap of
the Last Chance, Geo. H. Ransom, of
the Slocan Soverign and W. H. Adams
of the Rambler-Cariboo. Unless more
money is forthcoming there will be
only one citizen's delegate. The
choice lies between M. L. Grimmett
and C. C Cliffe. A Sandon business
man has expressed an intention to go
as a delegate on his own account.
The Kaslo delegates so far as chosen
are G. O. Buchannon, A. W. Good-
enough_and G. B. Gerrard. Kaslo city
council will also probably send three
other delegates. J. Roderick Robertson will lead the Nelson delegation.
The C. P. R. has given a round trip
rate of $50.
So far as can be ascertained the delegation will be thirty-five strong. A
special car will be waiting at Kootenay
Landing. The itinerary of the tour
includes a run to Montreal with a two
days sojourn in St. Paul and Minneapolis on the return.
The departure of the delegation may
be delayed somewhat as the dates will
have to be a-ranged to suit the convenience ofthe government. The Kaslo
board is now in communication with
W. A. Galliher arranging  for hearing.

At the hospital this week three of the
fever patients, Herbert Peasant, Johnny
Black and John Winquist, are improving rapidly. THE PAYSTREAK, SANDON, B. C, MARCH 30,
A TEMPERANCE LECTURE.
Warren G. Dacenport of the Butte
Reoille on Prohibition.
The idea that keeping liquor out of
one's sigfit when young strengthens
his moral will to resist it when older, I
call the conceetrated quintessence of
tommyrot. I do believe that if the
very creeks, springs and rivers in Kansas flowed pure wine and beer, there
would riot be so much drunkenness.
Too careful parents could not then
keep liquor from their sons until they
had attained the proper age for going
to the devil. They would grow up
familiar with its use and the dangers of
its abuse, the same as their granddads, when nearly every family kept
pure liquor in the house and the prohibition crank had not commenced to
fill all heaven and earth with his
cyclones of lawless gibberish and wild
tornadoes of resounding gab. Life is
one battle from the cradle to the coffin.
Hard knocks is what makes the whole
man. The majestic hickory tree was
never intended for the conservatory or
the full grown man for the mental or
moral kindergarten. The hickory tree
to attain its full growth must face the
elements and take its chances of being
split wide open by the lightning bolt ;
the full grown man to attain the highest type of manhood must be knocked
against the homy shins of Fate, buck
up against the world, the flesh and the
devil, thus developing that type of manhood in the school of exprrience that
will enable him to scrap against adversity until perdition freezes over and
then continue the controversy on the
ice. In such a contest some will get it
where the oxen wears the yoke, but the
fittest will survivevand one whole man
with iron in his blood, who has been
time tried and fire tested and proven to
be the genuine article, is of more value
to mankind than a million little bacteria,
the product of good fortune and fish-
blood, whose struggle for existence has
been a gala day procession���mental
weaklings brot up on a cut-glass suck-
bottle by the political step-father of
sumptuary law. *

Bennett's English Fuse.
General Agent Machin ofthe Bennett
Fuse Co. was in   town last week in the
ihler'ests of his company.    He  reports
that'tlie English fuse   is   meeting with
universal favor among  mining men in
B. C.j   Montana,   Idaho   and   Alaska,
and as an evidence of its popularity he
states that several  cheap imitations are
already on the market  and  some firms
are advertising  themselves as   agents
who hold   no   agency.    He   therefore
deems it of mutual interest to fuse consumers and his firm   to  advise that tbe
following firms are the duly authorized
agents in the Slocan :
H. Giegerieh, Kaslo,  Ainsworth,   Sandon.
Wm. Hunter Co., Silverton.
Houme^ Bros., New Denver.
T. D. Woodcock &  Co., Slocan  City.

ROCK ME TO SLEEP.
Backward, turn backward, O Time, in
your flight,
Make me a child again just for tonight!
Mother, come   back   from   the echoless
shore,
Take me again to your heart as of yore;
Kiss from my forehead   the   furrows of
care,
Smooth the few   silver threads out of
my hair;
Over my slumbers your loving watch
keep- -
Rock me to sleep mother���rock me to
sleep.
Backward,   flow    backward,,O   tide of
the years !
I am SO weary of toil and sif tears���
Toil without   recompense,   tears all in
vain
Take them and give me mv  childhood
again !
I have grown weary of dust and decay.
Weary of flinging my soul-wealth away,
W eary ol sowing fsir   others   to reap���
Rock me to sleep,   mother- rock me to
sleep !
Tired nf the hollow,   the   base, tlie untrue !
Mother, 0 mother, my  heart  calls for
you !
.Many a summer the   grass   has grown
green,
Blossomed and faded our faces between;
Yet, with Strong yearning and passionate pain,
Long I to-night for your presence again
Come from the   silence so   long and so
deep-
Rock me to   sleep, mother    rock me to
sleep !
Over my  heart   in   the days thai  are
flown,
No love like mother love ever has shone;
No other worship abides and endures,
Faithful,    unselfish    and    patient    like
yours ;
None like   a mother   can   charm away
pain
From the sick soul or   the world-weary
brain.
Slumber's   soft   calms   o'er   my heavy
lids creep ���
Rock me to sleep, mother    rock   me to
sleep !
Come, let your brown hair, just lighted
with gold,
Fall sin your shoulders again as of old ;
Let it drop over my   forehead   to-night,
Shading my faint   eyes  away from the
light ;
For with its sunny-edged shadows once
more,
Haply will throng  the   sweet visions oi
yore ;
Lovingly,   softly,   its   bright    billows
sweep���
Rock me to sleep, mother    rock  me to
sleep !
Mother, dear mother,   the  years  have
been long
Since I last listened your lullaby song ;
Sing, then, and   unto   my soul   it shall
seem
Womanhood's years  have  been only a
dream.

SANDON, MARCH 30 igoi.
If THERE is one thing more marvellous than another in Canadian
current opinion it is the complete
change of sentiment that has taken
place within the last few years on the
matter of ownership and control of the
systems of transportation. When the
editor of this paper first took Greeley's
advice���or at least the forward end of
it���and treked to the land of the setting sun, there was one lonely newspaper in the whole of the glorious,
golden west that raised its voice in
protest against the system of building
railroads for private corporations with
public land and government money.
That journal was Frank Oliver's Edmonton Bulletin.
Frank Oliver is to the Canadian
west what Henrv George was to Cali-
fornia. He came to Alberta before the
iron horse had frightened the last
buffalo from the plains. Many years
ago a bull team dragged his creaking
ing prairie schooner to the embrayO
metropolis of the north, and while
statesmen in Ottawa and financiers on
Wall street and in Amsterdam were
devising means to open and tenant the
great lone land Oliver was with "the
first low wash of waves where soon
shall roll a human sea." From his
little log printing palace on the banks
of the Saskatchewan he watched with
careful interest the founding of an inland empire, and he observed with the
critical eye of a nation-builder the
weak spots in the structure. He recognized the injustice of staking
private interests to large sections of
the public domain. He caught a flash
of the next turn and foresaw the dangers of a transportation monopoly.
But a 7x11 nonpariel edition published on the outer fringe of civilization did not phase the tranquility of
Canadian public opinion and for many
years the Bulletin was as the voice of
one crying in the wilderness.
Frank is in parliament now. But
it was a long time before his wisdom
was acknowledged and his prophecy
honored. Only the stress of circumstances could bring Canadians to
realize where they were at, and up to
ten years ago Frank Oliver was the
lonely advocate of government ownership.    Folks called him a crank.
But  oh   what   a difference now !
After two hundred millions have heen
jarred loose from the nation's treasury
and sixty millions of nature's fairest
acres separated from the nation s heritage, the nation has awakened. From
every province and every camp comes
the cry. Men place no reliance now
on the chimera of competition. No
more the alluring and eluding mirage
of private enterprise will coax the
country on to greater folly. Like a
rube at a country fair the public hot a
gold brick, and statesmen capped the
game. "The freighted trains," which,
in Macdonald's prophetic lexicon,
"flash from tide to tide, bearing their
burdens of peace and prosperity" are
now identified as the agents of monopoly. Thru Blake's "sea of mountains" the traffic pays for axel grease
with enuf left over to corrupt the
legislatures and parliament of Canada.
What pigmies those men seem now.
What childish, short-sighted blunderers Macdonald and Blake and Tupper
and Brown and Mackenzie must have
been. Time is the test of worth, and,
the specific gravity of retrospective
classification will average these men
light in the settling tanks of historical
estimation. Van Horn knew more in
a minute than they learned in nine
administrations.
Frank Oliver is no longer alone.
Government ownership advocates have
become so numerous that he is lost in
the throng. Hast and west, south and
north ; from prairie province to sounding sea the chorus rises, and the Sel-
kirks throw back the echoes to the Lau-
rentians. The Yukon Sun and the
Yarmouth Light are together in the
cause. The dailies of Toronto are as
emphatic as the weeklies of Bobcay-
geon or the Kootenav. Every dav as
the exchanges come to hand we meet
some new surprise--find some new
apostle to the principle. The press is
a mirror of public opinion. The people have discovered what they want,
and, like Pears' baby, they won't be
happy 'till they get it. A few years
may ensue, a few administrations go
over the dump of oblivion and a few
elections follow, but the outcome is
inevitable. The corporations are
strong, but the people are stronger
when they know their mind.
A quarter of a century ago a dun-
colored streak of mud was the highway over which Frank Oliver's bull
team plodded to the future city of the
Saskatchewan. Ten years from today
the trade of a nation will pulsate thru
the fertile valley of the north by a steel
highway as much the property of the
public as the buffalo trail that served
before the boom. They may never
build a monument to Oliver in Edmonton, but the pages of Hansard and
the files of the Bulletin bear a lasting
tribute to his intellect  that no marble
could outshine.
Finance Ministkr Turner is a
real nice man. Curtis and Brown brot
up a referendum bill in the legislature
which proposed direct legislation on
all bonuses, land grants, etc. That is
to say, the government would have no
power to give away land or monej
without a direct vote of the public, just
as a municipal council is required to
secure the consent of rate-payers thru
a by-law before it can give a bonus.
Mr. Turner said that such legislation
was an insult to the government ; that
it took the administration ol" affairs
ofthe hands ofthe legislature, and
thereby implied that the members are
not   to   be trusted.
Sure thing. The majority oi the
electors would not trust Turner as far
as they could throw him. We have uo
faith in the honesty that proclaims
itself. There must be something
wrong about a government thai
claims a copyright on honest)- and ai
the same time resents the referendum.
If Turner, Dunsmuir & Co. were on
the square they could secure the en-
dorsation of every act thru the referendum. If they cant secure thai
endorsation they must be crooked, for
the)' are doing what the electors don'l
want them to do.
FROM the provincial revenue tax
there are two classes of people exempt.
Members oi militia companies and
preachers will not be assessed .S3 for
the privilege of remaining on the map.
As militiamen are liable to be called
out on short notice to shoot someoi <-'
or to preserve order as in the case ol
the fishermen's strike on the Fraser
we can easily see thai it requires some
special inducements to influence men
to become members ofthe militia. Bill
we fail to see why preachers should be
bonused. They are of no particular
benefit to the community and do ^
good deal of harm. As educators the)
are several grades below the newspaper
men and the school teacher. As a
social enterprise the church is a long
wav inferior to the benefit society and
the labor union and the preacher is nol
in it with the grand master or tlu
walking delegate. As professional
advocates of the doctrine of Christ the)
are scarcely on a par with the salvation
army. As exemplifications of moralit)
they are the modern prototype of the
Pharisee.    As producers they nowhere.
If the government is going to ex-
empt preachers it should go the route
and exempt salvation army officers,
Dowieites, Christian scientists, Si wash
medicine men, Chinese joss agents and
the whole push who deal in options on
the next world. So far as the B. C.
legislature knows, one has as good
title as the other. THK PAYSTREAK, SANDON, B. C, MARCH 30,

THE PAYSTREAK, SANDON, B. C, .MARCH 30,

. :
The Reco and Goodenough.
Owing to the bad stale of the trails
and the seepage in tbe workings the
Reco and Goodcnough properties will
be shut down to-day. As soon as possible some contracts will be let to
continue tbe drifts, which are now in
48 feet each way from tbe Reco-(jood-
enoug tunnel. There is a beautiful
showing in either face and the chute,
which is continuous, averages eight
inches for the entire length of the drift.
The showing in the mine surpasses
anything previously opened up on the
property and is one ofthe best ever seen
in the Slocan. A car of ore from the
Reco was shipped to the Selby smelter
this week and there are 150 tons at the
Reco sidetrack. The rawhiders are
Still getting a little ore down to Cody
but the trail will not last   much longer.
Wonderful Leased.
W. W. Warner has secured a lease
on the Wonderful property and has
put a small force to work to re-open the
workings. Jack Campbell is in charge.
The lower tunnel will have to be cleaned out and several hundred feet of track
put in before a full force can be put on.
Mr. Warner returned to Spokane on
Wednesday but will return at a later
date to spend tbe summer in Sandon.
Wonderful stock took quite a flurry on
account of the lease and an attempt to
secure a bond.
Star Mill Will be Re-opened.
Preparations are under way to reopen the Slocan Star mill early next
week. Millwrights are overhauling
the machinery and getting the mill in
shape for a heavy run. The force at
the mine is now up to 65 and more
men are being put on every day. There
will be over a hundred men on the payroll when the mine is full-handed. The
mill will be run by steam for a few-
days until an ample supply of water
can be obtained.

The Pavstreak has just landed one
ofthe largest consignments of printer's
stationery that ever reached the Slocan.
It included almost every character of
raw material known to the printing
science and when the typographical
artists who infest the printing palace
get thru with it there will be
many an office desk and correspondence
file gladdened by the presence of
printing that is beautiful to the eye of
the amateur and useful to the hand of
the busy book-keeper.    This is no ad.

Sandon Talent in Demand.
A Snndon mill man is considering an
offer   rrom lhe owneJt* of the   Bruce
.Mines copper properties to go down
there to run the concentrator which is
now nearly completed. The mill is
being built by Tom Mitchell, who is
the designer of many of the Kootenay
mills. Arthur C'awley who was foreman of construction, on the Ruth mil.
is in charge of the building operations.
The Bruce Mines properties were operated many years ago when copper
commanded fancy prices like 40 or 50
cents a pound The ore was then
shipped by the great lakes to Swansea.
When copper prices fell the property
was shut down and until the present
company secured control was inactive
for upward to 40 years. Development
under the present management has
proven the property to be immensely
rich and with modern imgTOvents in
niilling practice the product of the
mine can be made to yield a handsome
profit. The mill when completed will
be capable of handling 750 tons of ore
a day altho it is claimed that the possible production ofthe mine is much
greater than the capacity ofthe mill.
Should the offer referred to be accepted by the Sandon mill man he will
take a crew of mill operators from the
Slocan country with him.
