A TEAM OF COAST SHARKS ARE
MAKING TROUBLE FOR
MINING COMPANIES:
Incorporated in the Companies Act,
on the statute books of British Columbia there is a law which requires every
stock corporation to make a return each
year to the Registrar of Joint Stock
Companies, of a list, the form of which
is given in the statute, ot all persons
holding shares in the company, of the
number of their shares, the amount of
the capital of the company, the total
number of shares into which it is divided, and of practically all the details
of the condition of the company at the
time of holding the annual general
meeting.
The penalty for not making the return or any infraction of section 37 of
the Act which provides for the return,
is that directors or managers of delinquent companies shall be liable on summary conviction for the payment of a
fine not exceeding $25 for every day
after the specified date in which such
default continues. If the convictions
are secured the informer laying information may be awarded one-half the
amount of the fine. It is also provided
that a suit may be entered in the Supreme Court for the amount of the
penalties imposed.
This law has been entirely overlooked
by many mining companies, especially-
such as were close corporations
having no stock on the market. Last
week a Vancouver man who labors
under the name of Charles Dore Tristram Atkinson, laid numerous informations in the Registrar's office there and
commenced suit in the Supreme Court
for the amount of the penalties. His
lawyer and partner in the raid is W. C.
Brown, a Spokan man, but formerly of
Vancouver and a member of the British
Columbia bar.
The writs have been issued and sent
away for service, and it remains to be
seen how much Mr. Atkinson and Mr.
Brown will profit by having disinterred
a technicality.
The names of the companies against
whom the writs are issued are :
The Byron N. White Company, Limited, of Sandon.
Braden Brathers and E.J. Matthews,
constituting the Lucky Jim Mines, of
Kaslo.
The Nelson & Fort Shepherd Railway Company, with head office in
British Columbia at Nelson.
The Jackson Mines, Limited, with
head office at Kaslo.
The Great Northern Railway Company,   having   its   head   office in this
province   in   the   city   of  New Westminster.
The Washington  Mining Company,
Limited, of Kaslo.
The Payne  Mining Company, Limited, of Sandon.
The Whitewater  Mines   Limited, of
Kaslo.
The Idaho   Mines,   Limited,   Rossland ���,
The Old  National   Bank   of Rossland, '
The Red Mountain  Railway   Company, with head office at Rossland.

Ore on the Bonnellep.
The owners of the Donnelley group,
who have been working so long on that
property, have at last opened a showing which justifies their faith in the
claims. In the old Donnelley tunnel
they have opened up a seven-inch streak
of high grade galena which is staying
with them well as they work along the
ledge.
The Donnelley claims belong to the
Urban Mining Company, a corporation
of local people who have put considerable money into the ground but until
recently have never had a return in
sight. Tlie stock, which has been a
drug tor many months, may now become valuable.
the Sunset.
The fifth dividend on the Sunset was
paid last week, amounting to $0,000.
Ten cars of ore were shipped during
February, bringing the total for the
first two months of the year up to 340
tons. The property is not slocked, but
belongs to Geo. W. Hughes of Sandon. John Daly of Kaslo, F. J. Finu-
cane of Greenwood and Cockshutt of
Brandon, Manitoba. It promises to
become one of the big mines of the
Slocan.

The Annual Bonspiel of the Kootenay Curling Association closed last
night after five days of excitement for
the men who push the rocks. The ice
was never good at any time and on
Wednesday it was feared that the spiel
would have 16 be called off altogether,
but a slight drop in temperature saved
it.
The first event to come up for competition was the All Coiners, in which
Sandon ranged an equal number of
rinks against the visiting rinks. The
Sandon teams vanquished the visitors in
this competition, and the finals to decide which of the local teams will get
the prize will be left until a later date,
when better ice can be had.
The Grand Challenge, the big event
of all, Was won by Hall's rink of Sandon. The final was played yesterday
morping against Brown of Revelstoke,
but was an easy victory for the Sandon
rink. Hall went thru the Grand Challenge from start to finish without losing a game. The cup, which was
awarded by the New York Life Co., is
a very handsome souvenir.
The points competition was left
out with the understanding that each
team should play a game for points
among themselves and report the result, the highest to take the prize.
The Oliver Cup will also remain in
Sandon, being left between the rinks
skipped by Hall, Wilson and Crawford,
to be played down at a later date.
At the hour of going to press the
Hudson Bay, the Tuckett, the Harris
trophy and the consolation finals had
not been played off, not to mention the
famous Smith-Gomm cord wood trophy.
To decide these events playing was
continued all night.
View tunnel on the Slocan
Star.
On Tuesday last a new crosscut was
commenced on the Silversmith ground
to tap the Slocan Star vein. It is calculated that the ledge will be intersected at 500 feet. The tunnel starts in
below the Silversmith workings and
directly above the concentrator.

SANDON, MARCH i, 1902.
A divorce law which will make
it possible for folks other than millionaires to dissolve an unhappy matrimonial alliance, is badly needed in
Canada. Marriages are not always
happy, and no marriage which is other
than happy should be allowed to continue. Divorce is as reasonable and
natural as marriage. If people discover, after having entered a partnership, that they have made a mistake,
they should be permitted to dissolve
the contract as easily as it was made.
If either of the parties desires to try
married life again under different auspices, so much the better. The second
venture may be more satisfactory. If
not, the third may.
As the thing stands now, the
Dominion senate is the only body in
Canada having undisputed power to
grant a divorce, and the costs of bringing a case before that aggregation of
fossils is inconveniently large. At the
present session the Dominion parliament intends to take the matter up and
will probably enact a change that will
give judges power to grant a divorce.
The grounds on which divorce may be
obtained will be unaltered, nothing
short of brutality or adultery being
recognized as sufficient.
This half-way reform of the divorce
law is being vigorously protested
against by the clergy and self-righteous
folks all over the Dominion, most
especially by the Catholic priests of
Quebec. They assert a sort of pater-
nel claim over the lives and welfare of
their people and are ready to perpetuate any kind ot an iniquity, even to
that of an unhappy marriage, in order
to retain their grip. They preach that
divorce is an unpardonable sin, while
the martyrdom of an unhappy marriage
is supposed to fit the victims for a long
life of ecstatic bliss in a world to come.
At least this is the purport of the
teachings of the church. Just how
they figure that the kingdom of God is
brot closer by forcing victims of an
unfortunate choice to live lives of misery, is not altogether apparent. This
is something that the anti-divorce people are not very clear on, and the rest
of their argument against freedom of
marriage and divorce is more applicable
to the system   of  forcible  abduction
practiced in medieval times than.to
matrimony as understood at the present day. At any rate, it is clearly
evident that a law which forces folks
to continue in the married state after
they discover their incompatability
must be monstrously wrong. The
mere fact of requiring a woman to
share the bed and board of a man she
does not love is sufficiently revolting
in itself to justify any decent measure
of relief. Beside such a fate as this,
voluntary prostitution is a life of comparative happiness.
he may have been in expressing that
judgment, he certainly never lacked
the first and greatest essential of a
good man���public spirit.
Nelson lost more when the Tribune suspended publication than John
Houson did.
If reports from Nelson be true,
John Houston is broke. For the first
time since it was launched many years
ago on the somewhat tempestuous sea
of Kootenay journalism, the Tribune
failed to appear on Wednesday last.
There were no funds, and the typos
quit juggling the machines.
This is what we call hard luck.
John Houston is the daddy of journalism in the Kootenay. He arrived in
Nelson ahead of the pack trail and
camped on the townsite when stumps
were more numerous in the street than
telegraph poles are now. He printed*
a paper in that camp long before most
of the men new running newspapers in
Kootenay had heard the name. The
Tribune always has been and was up
to its last issue the best newspaper in
British Columbia. Its only fault was
too great enterprise. Every advance
in Nelson found the Tribune a couple
of laps ahead of the town. John built
blocks, put in Mergenthalers and tried
to run a modern daily in a town a little
too small and much too mean to support a good weekly. He was up
against the competition of another
daily with a wealthy corporation on its
overdraft, and the outcome was inevitable.
Editorially, the Tribune reflected
the personality of the man behind the
pen. John Houston was always independent, but never neutral ; a politician but not a trimmer. He took a
side on every question that affected the
welfare of his city and district, and no
one ever had to get an examination for
discovery to ascertain where the Tribune was at. He was forceful, aggres-
eive and public spirited ; to friend and
enemy alike he was a fighter and a
man all the time.
It is rank ingratitude on the part
of the people of Nelson that the Tribune should suffer the humiliation of
having to pull down its sign. John
Houston has done more for Nelson
than any other one man in it or out of
it, alive or dead. Whatever his faults
may have been, whatever he may have
lacked in diplomacy or polished finish,
however wrong his judgment may
have been at times or however abrupt
Alice rooseveldt is going to
cement the friendship of the American
and German empires by cracking a
bottle of champagne on the non-
absorbant prow of Prince Henry's
boat. Had Alice's Dutch ancestors
not been phlegmetic enuf to stay with
their Hoboken real estate, and had
Henry's German forefathers not been
tainted with royal blood, the chances
are that the team of them would not be
able to contribute as much to the cere-
monv as would buy the cork for the
red-necked bottle of booze.
Prayers on the floor of the house,
whiskey in the cellar; slang-whanging
accentuated by rough and tumble
wrestling bouts while members sit on
each other's desks and fire chin-wheels
into the ozone! Such is the legislature which manages British Columbia's affairs at Victoria. Isn't it a hot
thing?
Helen Stone has at last been
turned loose by the Bulgarian brigands
and is expected to arrive in civilization
in a few days. This puts the Associated press under the necessity of finding a new sensation. An expedition
to discover the truth in the Crows
Nest Pass-C. P. R. controversy would
be sensational enuf.
That Chicago professor with the
electric elixir insists and keeps on insisting that he is going to keep men
alive for three centuries at a stretch.
We are beginning to feel a bit fidgety
about the matter. The horrible possibility of having to run a newspaper in
the Slocan for three hundred years is
simply appalling.
Those Sandon sports who took
large bunches of long green over to
Rossland and lost it to the Nelson
chubbers, have the elastic band left,
anyway. And whenever they want to
tell a real sporty story about the extent
of their losings on the hockey game
they can stretch the elastic a foot or
two and show the size of their roll.
The epidemic of railroad wrecks
in United States still continues to

Over in the Boundary country the
other day the Hot Air Line surveyors
made an attempt to swipe the V. V. &
E. grade. This prove once more the
truth of Mr. Hill's contention that
consolidation is the only proper system
of railroading. If the Hot Air and
the V. V. & E. people had a correct
understanding between themselves they
would not have to fool away time trying to swipe each other's grades, but
could limit their attention to swiping
land grants and bonuses from the
people.

A Quack medicine outfit in Hamilton offers to ship us four bottles of

British Columbia should secure
a permanent divorce from Vancouver
Island. The Victoria grafters, whose
horizon ends at the outer wharf, are
responsible for all the trouble this
province has had on its hands for many
years.
The great wall around China is
pretty good evidence that once upon a

the matter.
Canada's home-grown millionaires
have got the production of patriotic
sentiment down to such a scientific
basis that poor old Sir John, with his

Judging by the amount of agricultural literature which finds its way into

it for granted that parliament is in

Yorkey must feel very sore that

$n the frontier (Sravepard.
Here lie the dead,   'neath  headboards stained by time,
In graves uncared for; rudest heaps of earth;
Rough men whose lives on earth were black with crime,
Devoid of every mark of honest worth.
In ways un-natural they met with death,
In blood-stained garments they were hid  from sight,
A curse clung to its victim's dying breath,
And hatred lit their eyes till dimmed of light
With boots yet on their sinful feet they lie
Till Gabriel's trumpet echoes from on high.
Here lies old Texas Joe, who met his death
From hand of one who was of quicker fire;
And Tuscarora Sam, whose fund of breath
Slipped from him when he called Black Bill a liar.
And here is Poker Frank who tried to steal
The fraved affections of Sport Daly's dame,
And this rude headboard stands o'er Brocky Teale.
Whom drink had made unsteady in his aim
When with their shooters he and Grizzley Pete
Went out to hunt each other in the street.
Here rests the shot-up frame of Smoky Tim,
Whose stolen horse lacked necessary speed,
And close beside him sleeps Old Greaser Jim,
Who was by vigilantes roped and treed.
Just over there lies Sacremento Joe,
Who died with boots too full of wriggling snake>,
And just beyond they planted Tommy Lowe,
Who made a fatal play to grab the stakes
From off the table in a game of draw���
"Bit off," the boys said, "more than he could chaw."
Here's Bob the Methodist and Sleepy Ike,
And DoughfaceJ henderson and Whisky .Mack,
And poor Joe Bowers (not the man from i ike),
And Faro Dick and old Three-Fingered jack,
And others, names unknown, lie in this spot ;
And sanding in this border burial ground,
Rude and uncared for. comes the passing thot
Thiit when the dead wake at the trumpet sound
Old Gabriel will be filled with mute surprise
To see this gang of thorobreds arise.

living and Giving.
There's nothing so easy as living,
When we've learned the way to live-
And nothing so easy as ,giving,
When the heart is willing to give.
And our load isn't hard lo bear,
If we follow the light within,
For the Good is everywhere,
And there is no sorrow and sin.
We have lots to give if we'll give it,
And no matter how poor we seem
The Gospel of Truth, if we live it,
Will drive away poverty's dream.
The way to receiving is giving,
However so little it be ;
And love is the keynote of living,
The love that makes everyone free.
MhP he Bidn't SFump.
Here is one that a young man who
knows a good story when he hears it
heard one man tell another in a depot
up the line the other day :
"We picked up a new Irishman
somewhere up the country and set him
to work brakin' on  construction   train
at three cents a mile for wages. One
day when him an' me was on the train
she got away on one o' them mountain
grades an'the first thing we knowed
she was fiyin' down the track at about
ninety miles an hour with nothin' in
sight but the ditch an' the happy hun-
tin' grounds when we come lo the end.
I twisted I hem down all along the tops
and then of a sudden I see Mike crawling along towards the end of the cars
on all fours with his face the color of
milk. I calculated he was getting
ready to jump, an' I see his finish if he
did.'
" 'Miketi I says, 'lor God's sake
don't jump.'
"H clamps his fingers on the runnin'
board to give him a chance lo turn
round and, lookin'at me contemptuous,
answers:
" 'Jump, is it. Do yez think I'd be
afther jumpin' an' me makin money as
fast as I am ?' "

the Words of "Bnarchist'
Bltgeld.
The intellectual activity that is born
of freedom made Greece glorious;
made Rome great ; made some medieval European cities famous ; has given
England her power in the world and
has placed America at the front of modern civilization. It is this intellectual
activity drawing its inspiration from
freedom lhat has spanned the continent
with railroads, that has narrowed the
Atlantic to a week's journey, lhat has
brot the different parts of the earth together, that has built cities and given
its progress to the world.
We  discover  that   the    commercial
momentum has carried  us to a point
where commercialism  in itself has become an object and  man  is made inci-
^dental ; material  development has become an object  instead of a   means to
m end, and the human hands that are
fto make it are looked  upon  merely as
so many machines, so  many, means to
an end.    We discover that commercialism has no soul, and  it   has no  senti-
I merit;    it   cannot     understand     high
I ideals ; it dees not  know  of any high
r standards ; it can see  nothing but a $.
fit does not look  toward   the  heavens ;
��� it is   constantly   looking  towards   the
earth.      We   find   that   instead of its
building   character,    making     broad,
strong, noble  men   and   women   with
high standards,   high   ideals   and   an
appreciation of the rights of their fellow
men, rommerealism tends to make men
narrow.    It  dries   up  the more tender
.and   more  noble qualities and   makes
men fierce money getters.
We all admire the captains of industry, great railroad men,, great manufacturers and great merchants. They
stand in place of the generals of the
past. But they have no right to strangle free institutions. They did not
make this continent. They did not
make this soil tortile. They made
neither the climate nor the sunshine.
These great captiaus sat down by the
wayside of commerce and waxed rich,
^and many of them used the government
tlo exploit tlie people. But it was the
[labor of the men and the women who
'were building houses, cultivating fields,
slaving in factories, operating railroads,
teaching school and doing the country's
work that made it possible for these
captains of industry to amass their
gigantic fortunes. 1 believe that the
men and the women who in tears and
in sorrow have worked and have waited,
have planted and have watered, have
sown and have watched, and were not
permitted to reap, will sit nearer the
head of the table at the great banquet
of destiny than will the men who simply
gathered the harvest.
The world is not going backward.
Viewed from headland to headland, the
march of the human( race is upward.
True, every forward movement seems
to be followed by a short reactionary
step. The waves of the rising tide of
civilization roll far up the bank and they
foil back again, but the next wave that
comes will roll further up than the last,
and I believe that the world is on the
threshold of a new development, of a
new industrial, economic and social existence based on justice.
As religious freedom gave the world
a new birth���as political freedom gave
it a new development���so industrial
freedom and social justice will lead
mankind to the higher plane of human
felicity. But if we would be harbingers
of the new time we must not pull down
our altars. We must protect the rights
of the citizens, we must uphold the
right of assembly,and we must preserve
free speech and a free press. We are
not ready to admit that the fathers
we wrong���we are not ready to apologise for their immoral work���and we
will not consent to hide their graves.
All of our greatness was born of liberty,
even our commercialism was rocked in
the cradle of democracy, and we cannot strangle the mother without destroying her children.

pasco made an Qff*Side
Plap^
Hiram Pasco, until  recently   of the
Union saloon, got into the clutches of
the law on   Thursday   and   was compelled to ante.     It   seems   that   Mr.
Pasco does not   admire   the   style   in
which W. H.   Lilly   dispensed  British
justice when on the police bench.    In
view of these circumstances, Pasco took
occasion the other day  to   qualify the
"Judge" in  language  that  was much
more   expressive than   elegant.    The
policeman   happened along about that
time and "Big   Ole"   soon   found  his
case in the hands of Magistrates Sandi-
lands and   Sewell, who   ruled   that he
had broken the laws of  propriety and
good manners at least $50 worth.   The
money is now in the city  treasury and
while Pasco may not  have altered his
sentiments to any great extent, he does
not-get up on a barrel and declare himself in public.
We may live without poetry, music and
art,
We may live without conscience and live
without heart ;
We may live without  friends, and live
without fads,
But business today cannot live without
ads.
