Array BOOK V.
SANDON, MARCH 9 1901.
CHAPTER 23
HAPPENINGS If: BRIEF.
The ladies ofthe Tiesbylerian chunh
intend giving a concert some time in
the near future. The dale has not
heen "el yet.
Mr. and Mrs. Loren/o Alexander
will occupy the Sunnyside residence
which C. j- Smith and family vacate
nn their departure for Spokane.
C. D. Hunter was in town for a few
davs this week from Phoenix. He reports business very good in that camp
just now with prospects for a livel)
summer.
Booth & Robinson have opened in
lhe painting, sign writing and paper
hanging business in the building next
to E. M. Sandiland's office. Mr. Bootli
was formerly ir business in Troul Lake.
His partner is now in   Kalispell. Mont.
H. E. Crouse, formerly of Sandon,
but now a resident sif Republic Wash.,
is suing for a divorce in the Spokane
courts. He was married in Wallace,
Idaho,   in "96.    His   wife now   lives in
Colorado.
���
The hockey club is trying to make arrangements with Nelson and Kaslo
horkevists for another game with each
team in Sandon before the ice disappears. The Nelson team will probabl)
be in Sandon on Wednesday evening.
\\ ilkie Mackenzie was heard from
yesterday, having arrived in Halifax on
the Nuinidian with the returning second contingent. Wilkie served thru
mosl ofthe campaign with Buller in
the Ladysmith country. He will probably be in Sandon next Thursdav evening.
The pool and billiard tournament in
the Reco hotel is the local sensation of
the week. Over 30 players entered the
pool tournament and the contest is
getting down toward lhe finals now.
The finish will take place sometime
next week. The games are on every
night, and star shots are numerous
enuf to retain ihe attention ofalargt
audience.
C. J. Smith, who has been with the
Sandon Water -��_ Light company and
tlu- Reco Mining company for ihe past
four years, has severed his connection
With these companies and will leave
Sandon for Spokane about the first of
April. Mr. Smith has an offer in Spokane of a more lucrutive situation.
Mrs. Smith is leaving next Thursday
for Spokane. Mr. and Mrs. Smith's
departure from Sandon will be a matter
of regret to their friends who are legion
in this camp, and il is the universal
hope that they will meet fortune face to
���ace at every turn in their new surroundings.
TO BUILD   AM ELECTRIC  PLANT.
J. M. Harris   Will Install   a Poicer
Station at Three Forks.
CITY COUNCIL,
Whitetcater Closed Down.
The Whitewater mill has been closed
down and all the men working on ore
in the mine laid off, only a small force
being retained on development. The
company was forced to suspend operations until a satisfactory market can be
found for the ore. No shipments have
been made since January 1st and in the
neighborhood of 1000 tons of concentrates are piled along the K. & S.
sidetrack awaiting a market.
J. M. Harris is applying to the Land
& Work's department for water rights
sm the south fork and Seaton creek
branches of Carpenter creek at Three
Porks. The Sandon Water & Light
Companv already has privileges under
its charier on the north or mam fork, j
which flows thru Sandon. It is Mr.
Harris' intention to incorporate a company to install an electric plant at Three
Forks with 1000  horsepower capacity.
The station will be made to furnish
power for the Reco mines and for any
other users of power who care to purchase electric energy. A double line
,if wire will be run, one to the Reco
mine and intermediate points and the
other to the city of Sandon. Power
will be supplied to the Sandon Water
it Light Company when the water
supply is inadequate to run the Sandon
plant. The cosl ofthe plant and mains
will be something over $40,000.
Three Porks has many advantages
as a site for a power station. There
are at least 500 inches sif water available in the South Fork of Carpenter,
250 inches in the north fork and 250
inches in Seaton creek, making a total
flow of 1000 inches of water, sufficient
to develop an enormous power. The
fall at this point will permit of a large
head being gained with a comparatively
short penstock. Three Forks also has
the advantage of being a central location, the distances being about equal to
Whitewater, New Denver, Silverton,
and the mines around Sandon. Nearly
every producing mine in the Slocan is
within a ten mile radius of Three-
Forks.
The Week's Ore Shipments.
From Sandon Over thk C. P. R:
Ivanhoe  47 tons

The black jack industry is languishing in Sandon. The national game is
in evidence in only one place in the
citv.
The city council held its regular
meeting on Monday evening last.
There were present Mayor Pitts, Aid.
Atherton, Gomm and Folliott.
Minutes of the last meeting were
read and adopted.
COMMUNICATIONS.
From J. W. Balmain re $35 due for
services rendered to the relief committee. .As this is a matter with which
the coifricil has nothing to do no action
was taken. ���
Win. Walmsley sent in an offer to do
the  scavenging work for $50 a month
providing  the  city  did the  collecting.
The matter was   left in Mayor   Pitts'
hands to make a contract.
A letter was received from H. R.
Jorand, solicitor, of Slocan City, claiming $150 for injuries sustained by Joe
Thompson at the Sandon fire. The
city clerk was instructed to reply that
the city was in no way responsible for
the accident which befel .Mr. Thompson and that he had already received
very corteous treatment at the hands of
the relief committee.
A communication from Mayor Car
thew of Cumberland appealing for assistance for the sufferers by the recent
explosion at the South Wellington mine
was answered by a donation of $50 for
the benefit of the widows and orphans.
FINANCE.
Moved by Aid. Folliott that the following accounts certified to by tlie
finance committee be ordered paid:
Salaries (February)  $270 00

An account of $25 from Geo. Lovatt
for use of his map of part of the town-
site of Sandon was rendered. It appears that J. W. Balmain referred to
these maps last September when getting up a new map of the townsite referred to Lovatt's map and Lovatt now
wants to charge $25 for use of same.
The account was laid over.
A bunch of accounts  from the  San
don Water &. Light Co. were also passed but the vouchers have not yet been
signed by Mayor Pitts. The accounts
were for water service as follows : November $138.80, December $140.30,
January $105.10 and February $102.10,
less a rebate for fire hydrants out of
repair amounting to $189, making the
total due the water and light company
for the four months $277.30.
The committee appointed to confer
with the Sandon Water & Light Co.
reported that an agreement had been
reached with the company for. a fire
protection service. It was moved by
Alderman Atherton, seconded by Alderman Gomm that the mayor and city
clerk be authorized to sign a contract
with the S. W. & L. Co., and attach
the corporate seal thereto.
The motion was carried but the contract has not yet been signed.
The contract accepted by the council
provides for 11 hydrants at $10 each a
month, payments to commence on February 1st, and to be made in advance
on the 1st of each succeeding month.
The company guarantees a first class
service. A rebate of $10 a month, the
re it of the hydrant, will be made for
any hydrant out of repair. In the
terms of the old contract the rebate for
hydrants out of repair was placed at $1
a day. There are at present eight
hydrants in working  order in the city

NIGHT IN THE CITY.
The curfew tolls the knell of parting day,
The evening shadows blanket all the town.
Tin- weiirv husband homeward taken his way
In Tear hi* waiting wife may eall him down.
Behind the billboard on the vacant lots
The holdup crouches with hi.-, bag of saml.
And clustered round the corpulent jackpots
Sit anxious men with pictured cants in hand.
And lovers stroll beneath the starlit skies
And feed each other's ears with honeyed lies.
The are lights spit and sputter overhead
The iioi.-..v traincurs roll along the street
The big policeman of the funeral tread
Swipe,  peanut*  from the   stands  along   his
heat:
Within the washy house the snowy shirt
With    spray   from    puckered   mout'.i    Wun
Lnngee wets ;
And prowler- pick cigar stubs from the dirt
Which later w. will get in cigarettes.
And oe'r his fragrant, greasy steaming can
Of mystery stand, the hot tamale man-
In moisture   joints   where   glasses   clink   we
hear.
As thru the dimly lighted streets we walk.
Men cnr.se expansion o'er their lager beer
With tongues expanded till they scarce could
talk
And heelers flush with cash of Candidatc.
To drink   with them   the red   nosed rounders
press.
And in their slangy eloquence dilate
t'pon the ballot's guarded sacredness,
And ask the bummers to do all they can
To land their pure, unspotted, honest man.
The night creeps on, the hai-knian at the call.
Their sleep-banked  eyes   with  chilly fingers
rub.
Then .-.peed away with rattling wheels to haul
The men  with   tangled   legs   home   from the
club :
The tired harkeeps close ami  lock their doors,
The bums themselves to ten-cent l eds betake;
Thd weary cop in darkened hallway snore-
And dreams of clues he see-  not when awake
The wicked town relinquishes its  sins
To catch a nap before the day begins.

Unique Epitaphs.
An addition to the ever increasing
collection of curious epitaphs is the
following, which is said to have been
copied from a stone in a country graveyard on the banks of the St. Lawrence
river, near Prescott :���
Erected to the Memory of
Elizabeth Richardson
Who heroically defended the life
of her lover   by sticking a
pitchfork in a mad cow's nose,
age 38.
This is only equal   to the historic example in a South of  England   churchyard :

Gem Mining in Ceijlon.
The dUitriut-s i�� Ceylon in which mosl
of,the precious Bionei* are found sire in
K.itnapura und Kakwann, both in the
houtliwesteri*! portion of lhe island, nnd
within about 30 milis ot each other,
1 in- former place being aHoul 65 miles
from Colombo, the chief porl and gem
market of Ce\ Ion.
It is ,1 ven I'lirii'iis feature in mining
in Ceylon, lhal with the exception of
ilu diamond, emerald, torquofyt ami
opal, almost ever) precious and semi-
��� precious stone i-- found (here, und fre-
qucnll, a great variety ot" them an- dug
mil of ih. same pit. Rakwana is
especial!v tamed lor its sapphires, and
ii'.i native dealer wants to thoroly impress vou will' the quklit) of his goods,
\io 111.liter where they ma) come from,
In- will assure you most solemnly that
tl;,--, nv tin- inn1 Kakwana sapphire.
Almosi al! the dealers in gents are
Mohammedans, tlu- native Cingalese
having ven little to do with the business except the manual labor of digging
fsir 1 hem.
"Int- mines, or, more correctly, diggings, ,n.- located in a rather mountainous couotrv, and with the exception
id' the Everion mine, which has a depth
oi several hundred feet, and which i-s
considered to have been the most suc-
feessful on the island, ate really only
shallow pits, usual!) measuring from
6 10 10 feet, and rarely exceeding 10
\eei in depth.
riiere are certain well-defined features iu the geological formation of tlu-
country to he locked for in seeking tor
the gem-bearing ground, and when tlu
-pot is decided upon digging can proceed, provided one is possessed ot the
license granted hy the proper authorities. The gems are found in a stratum
of earth usually from 3 to S leet below
the surface. The stratum is called by
the natives "lllamr" it is ,1 loose, gravelly soil and is easily manipulated ;
when a sufficient quantity has been
brot to the surface the "IHftm" is taken
in small hand carts or carried in baskets
on the heads of coolies to the wearc-t
stream and there washed. This i*-,
done by means of a closely-meshed
-���eive made sif plaited cane strips and
about 30 inches in diameter by 9 inches
deep, running lo a conical point
The "IHam" is then thorolv washed
in the stream until only the clean pebbles remain. These are then brot
asbofe and sorted over and the gems
picked out. It is in this process of
washing that while man. trying to
work one of these mines, loses the best
stones, as he cannot look over more
I ban one washer at tlie same time,
while the native is wonderfully quick
at throwing out a line specimen to a
place where later on he can come and

the   alexandrite   is   the  most'valued.
There has also been some successlul
dredging in the Ratnapura river, and a
party have been working in the river in
diving suits, a new departure. The
resulls seem promising.
Gem mining in Ceylon has of late
vears been on the decline owing to the
old mining districts being seemingly
worked out, and there are now comparatively few people engaged in the
industry, the majority being engaged
in seeking plumbago, which is abundant and is readily marketable ; or else
they are working on the numerous
estates, which, while bringing them in
less money, is yet a sure livelihood for
them at all seasons.
A good proportion of the stones found
are cut locally in the village of Ratna-
pura and Kalutara, a small place on
the coast some 40 miles south of Colombo. The quality of the cutting is
improved considerable, tho the cutters
still insist on making them very thick
and bulky so as to have them weigh as
much as possible. ��� Engineering 8i

SANDON, MARCH 9 iqoi.
John Costigan, an Irishman by
accident of birth, a Catholic by superstition and a parliamentarian by election, has dragged the coronation oath
into the House at Ottawa and wants it
changed. The oath which King
Edward is required to_ take when he
goes on shift is somewhat ancient and
contains certain references to Catholicism which are not flattering. This
oath had a great run about the time of
William and Mary and a perusal of
its contents would lead one to infer
that it is just about the sort of an oath
that King William would be guilty of
getting up himself, as in it the king
promises to protect his throne and
empire from the designs of the bad,
ambitious Catholics. Costigan is now
the father of a resolution in the Dominion parliament asking the Imperial
government to revise the oath and cut
that out as it is not palateable to the
several million Catholic Britishers who
are as loval as thev make them.
mt m"
In this particular Costigan certainly has a case. There is no reason why
Edward should be required to declare
himself in a manner distasteful to the
Catholics. But what about the other
fellows ? There are calculated to be
some three hundred million Buddhists
living under the shadow of the flag,
not to mention several million Mo-
hammodens, Taoists, Brahmans, Confucians, fetish worshippers, ghost
dancers, Seventh Day Adventists and
adherents of many other faiths and
superstitions. If the Protestants have
a vested right to favorable mention in
the oath why should not all these
others be included ? They are surely
Brstish subjects, and so far as the true
religion part of it is concerned, that is
entirely a matter of opinion. The sun
dancers of the Sioux are just as likely
to be on the main trail to the happy
hunting grounds as the followers of
the Protestant doctrine. No denomination has a lead pipe cinch on the
glory of God.
The fact of the matter i's that the
coronation oath is out of date. King
Edward is a hired man in just the
same sense as a customs official or a
section boss on the Intercolonial is an
employee of the people. His job consists mostly   of  going   thru   certain
perscribed motions in connection with
the conduction of parliament. Outside
of this line he cuts an excellent figure
at the laying of corner stones and other
public functions, but there is no reason
on earth why the matter of religious
discrimination should find a place in
his program. His respected mother
was diplomatic enuf to be an Episcopalian while in England and a Presbyterian while in Scotland, but that is a
matter in which the* public at large
need have no interest and certainly
should have no say. Edward should
have a right to follow any old kind of
creed that he fancies, but there is no
necessity of incorporating his religious
preferences in the coronation oath,
and, for that matter, there is no necessity of a coronation oath anyway. Cut
out the religion altogether and peace,
harmony and concord will rule where*
dissention and factional strife prevailed.
If the government of the Province
of British Columbia were to build a
line of railway from the coal mines at
Eernie to the boundary it would be
able to lease it to Jim Hill for a good
stiff figure. It would also have the
coal supply of Kootenay well under
control as the lease could be made
terminable any time B. C. smelters
ran out of fuel. This would settle the
coal business by placing the control of
the export in the hands of the government and it would shut off the C. P. R.
argument that Jim Hill will drag all
the coal in British Columbia to the
American smelters. If the coal fields
of' East Kootenay are properly developed and the Crow's Nest made the
supply depot of the coal consumers
across the line there will be emplov-
ment for ten thousand men in the coal
region. The Province of B. C. cannot
afford to sluff off an opportunity like
this for the benefit of the C. P. R.
railroad monopoly, and it can no better
afford to give Jim Hill a temporary
monopoly of the coal supple. The
government should build the railroad.
Mavor Pitts has turned dictator
and has taken the government of the
city of Sandon into his own hands.
Under the new order of things the
city council is overlooked like a white
check when an opportunity comes up
for His Worship to get back at John
Morgan Harris, president of the Sandon Water & Light Company.
Mayor Pitts built his store on
Reco Avenue. J. M. Harris took
action against him and the court has
promised a decision which will compel
Mayor Pitts to move his building off
the street. Now Mayor Pitts displays
his personal animosity by refusing to
sign a water  service  contract with the
Sandon Water & Light Co. which has
been accepted by the city council.
He also refuses to sign vouchers for
accounts passed by the council for
water service for November, December,
January and February.
Here is a pretty state of affairs.
Eor the lack of street lights and adequate fire protection Sandon is deprived of insurance. Should a lire
sweep Sandon tomorrow almost every
business man in the city would be fiat
broke and in the hole, simply because
no insurance can be had. Until a contract is entered into guaranteeing prop,
er protection against fire no insurance
will be obtainable.
The offer made by the Sandon
Water & Light Co. is acceptable to
the council. Mayor Pitts should
either sign it or hand in his resignation. He should keep his personal
feuds to himself and not drag them
into municipal affairs. The city o\
Sandon is too poor to father the animosities of Herbert Herschal! Pitts.
The most graceful thing Mayo-
Pitts can do is to resign.
Thk paragrapher of the Pueblo
Courier expresses a sentiment with
which   many   will   agree.     He   says:
"The most glaring travesty thai ,
lias come to my notice was the carting
of the body of Queen Victoria to tlu1
grave on a caution caisson. Queen
Victoria loved peace, and her most
commendable trait was that she did all
she could to prevent war. Older these
circumstances common decency should
have prevented her pomp-loving subjects from showing such an insulting
disregard of her views, opinions and
wishes, when living, as to load her
dead body on a connon the ven
emblem of war to transfer it to tho
grave."
Labor is claiming its own. I'1
Great Britaiq, an eight-hour mining
law has passed its second reading.
The state legislature of Oregon has
just passed an eight-hour law tor
miners, mill men and all classes ot
labor relating to mining. In the state
of Montana the long struggle has
been won and an eight-hour law tor
miners now graces the statute books ot
the copper state. In Colorado tin1
labor members have control of the
legislature and a eight-hour mining
law will find its place among the
statutes of that state within thirty
days. Even in the old Keystone state
of Pennsylvania the agitation is being
felt and the coal miners who struck
against starvation wages last fall may
soon be enjoying an eight hour shut-
in Ontario also and eight-hour miu-ll��
law is talked of. THE PAYSTRKAK, SANDON, B. C, MARCH 9,

"If the price of gold goes down,
another metal must be looked for as a
token of international value, I think
this metal will be silver, because silver
is not found in alluvial plains and because owing to the difficulty In mining
it will ntv.r ��*hange in value."
This statement was made by Prof.
Shaller, Harvard's geologist, in a lecture to 6oo students in Saunder's
theater. He predicted that within the
next 30 years there would be an influx
of gold such as the world has never
known. Prof. Shaler bases his statement on geological conditions, combined with recent improvements in min.
ing apparatus.    He said in part :
"Within the past few years men
have come to realize that a large portion of the earth's surface is charged
with gold. Gold is insoluable, and
when gravel banks are cut away it is
not easily carried off by streams to the
sea, as is the case with other melals.
Instead, it is carried along, broken up
into finer fragments and gradually deposited over alluvial plains. The new
systems of mining which have recently
been discovered about the middle of
the present century almost an intolerable supply of gold. I should say the
supply would be at least quadrupled.
On the continent of America alone I
have estimated that the amount of gold
to be won from gravel within the next
100 years will be worth $30,000,000.
"Up to the present time men have
been greatly handicapped in searching
for gold by the fact that it was so thinly scattered thru the earth. They have
been able to find any amount of gravel
paying 10 to 30 cents to the cubic yard,
but the expense of dredging has always
been so great that thev have been unable to extract it with profit. Now,
however, the dredgers have been greatly improved. Within the past three years
dredges have been operated in Russia
and in the United States, especially in
Leadville, Col., which have proved beyond question that alluvial soil can be
profitably worked for gold. In the
the United States there are from 6000
to 8000 square miles which will give
miners employment and which can be
accurately depended upon for producing
gold. Similar areas in Russia, India,
Africa and Australia will flood the
market, and if the value of gold remains the same the quantity will increase tenfold by the middle of the
century.
"The production may be limited,
however, by a similtaneous rise in the
price of labor and by the fact that the
mines in South Africa and in other
places where the solid rock bed is
worked cannot be operated by reason
of the increased expense. Still, there
will be a vast influx, and what its
effect will be cannot be estimated. It
may play havoc with commerce, but to
my mind it is more likely to bring
about the long looked for golden age,
an age of peace, prosperity  and hope."

WHAT PRODUCES CRIMINALS.
Some ufi the Causes that Fill our
Prisons With Unfortunate Men
and  Women.
Much  inti-rvst just  now in criminal*..
Much    horror   aroused   by   depravity.
Many plans more or less appropriate
for making ihe air pure.
Manv gsiod people, politicians, women and clergymen, who spent the
summer a) the seaside, willing now lo
spend a tew days Wiping "crime" off
ihe earth.
What is crime ? Who are the criminals ?    Who makes the criminals ?
I),) criminals viciously or voluntarily
arise among us eager to lead hunted
lives. It) he jailed at intervals, to crawl
in the dark, dodtje policemen, work in
slopes and die in shame ?
Hardly !
Will you kindly and patient I v follow
1 he lives quickly sketched, of a nov and
a girl ?
Tin: GlRL : Horn poor, born in hard
luck, her father, or mother, or both,
victims of long hours, poor fare, bad
.tir and little leisure.
As a baby she struggles againsi fate
.ind manages to live while three or four
little brothers and sisters die and go
back to kind earth.
She crawls around the halls sif a
lenement, a good deal in the way. She-
is hunted here and chased there.
She is cold in winter, ill-fed in summer, never well cared for.
She gels a little so-called education.
Ill-dressed and ashamed beside the
other children, she is glad to escape
the education. No one at home can
help her on. No sine away from home
cares for her.
She grows up white, sickly, like a
potato sprouting in a cellar. At the
corner of a fine street she sees tin-
carriages passing with other girls in
warm furs or in fine cool summer
i.l 1 esses.
With a poor shawl around her and
with heels run down she peers in at a
restaurant window, to see other women
leading  lives very   different   from hers.
Steadily she has impressed upon her
the fact absolutely undentable, that as
lhe world is organized there is no
especial place for her���certainly no
comfort for her.
She finds work, perhaps. Hours as
long as the daylight.
Ten minutes  late   -half a day's fine.
At the end of the day, aching feet,
aching back, system ill fed, not enuf
earned to live honestly���and that prospect streatching farther ahead than her
poor eyes can see.
"What's the charge, officer?"
"Disorderly conduct,   Your Honor."
There's the criminal, good men,
politicians, women and clergymrtn, that
you are hunting so ardently.
The Boy :   Same   story, practically.
He plays on the tenament staircase���
cuffed off the staircase.
He plays ball in the street���cuffed,
if caught by the policemen.
He swings on the area railing, trying to exercise his stunted muscles-
cuffed again.
In burning July, with shirt and
trousers on, he goes swimming in the
park fountain -caught and cuffed and
handed over to  the  Children's society.
A few months in a sort of semi-
decent imprisonment ; treated in a
fashion about equivalent to that endured by the sea turtle turned over on
its back in the market, he escapes to
begin the same life once more.
He tries to work.
"What do you know ?"
"I don't know anything ; nobody
ever taught me."
He cannot even endure the discipline
of ten hours' daily shovelling���it takes
education to instill discipline, if only
the education of the early pick and
shovel.
He had not been taught anything.
He had been turned loose in a city full
of temptation. He had no real start
to begin with, and no effort was ever
made to repair his evil beginning.
"What's the charge, officer ?"
"Attempted burglary; pleads guilty."
"Three years in prison, since it is his
first offence."
In prison he gets an education.
They teach him how to be a good
burglar and not get caught. Patiently
the state boards him and educates him
to be a first-rate criminal.
There's your first rate criminal,
Messrs. clergymen, good men, politicians, and benevolent women.
Dear clergymen, noble women, good
men and scheming politicians, listen to
this story :
In the South Sea Islands they have
for contagious diseases a horror as
great as your horror of crime.
A man or woman stricken with a
loathsome disease, such as smallpox, is
seized, isolated, and the individual
sores of the smallpox patient are
earnestly scraped with sea shells���until
the patient dies. It hurts lhe patient a
good deal���without ever curing, of
course���but it relieves the feelings of
the outraged good one who wields the
sea shells.
You kind-hearted people hunting
"crime" in great cities are like the
South Sea Islanders in their treatment
of smallpox.
You ardently wield your reforming
sea shells and you scrape very earnestly
at the sores so well developed.
No desire to decry your earnest
efforts.
But if you ever tire of scraping with
shells, try vaccination, or better still,
try to take such care of youth, to give
such chances and education to the
young as will save them from the least
profitable of all careers���Crime.
Rich good men, nice clergymen,
comfortable benevolent ladies���every
man and woman in the workhouse,
every wretched creature living near the
"red light" would gladly change places
with any of you.
Scrape away with your sea shells,
but try also to give a few more and a
few better chances in youth to those
whom you now hunt .as criminals in
their mature years.
God creates boys and girls anxious to
live decently.
Your social system makes criminals
and fills jails.
