The worst slide that has occurred \n
the  McGuigan   Basin  for years came
down on Thursday  morning at about
9 o'clock.   The slide started up above
Powers' freight camp, in heavy  timber
and took an entirely new and unexpected course.    It carried awayThe stables,
bunk house, store and everything but a
couple of old unoccupied buildings.
1    The avalanche came as they always
���come, suddenly and  without  warning.
The six' teams of fours which  are used
to do the' freighting  on the  Rambler
road.1' were all out with their drivers.
Thirteen mules and three saddle horses,
just brot in the day before from Wash-
ingtoni  to- do   lhe .summer's   packing
stood, in the stable*    A string  of heavy
ore  wagons, just  received from   Brantford  lay  in  the  yard. . Supplies and
provisions for a heavy season's business
filled  the store to'the rafters.  .A* the
fatal moment when the slide came Billy
Douglas,   the camp blacksmith,   was
busy shoeing a mule.    Sandy Macdonald, the  corral boss,  was  busy .about
the stables.    J. H. Power,  who owned
the outfit, had just got on horseback to
.start up the hill when he saw  the slide
coming and  giving the warning to his
companions, rode like mad for safety.
His escape  was  providential,   as   the
edge of the slide caught him and stripped the leather legging from one of his
feel, but  left  the  man  and the horse
uninjured.    Sandy Macdonald reached
the edge of the slide, but was carried
down a' few feet  before lie tvas  thr.own

out ofthe track. Billy Douglas,, not
as fast a runner, was caught in the
slide and smothered, hui his boday lay
where it fell. The camp, with its live
stock and equipment was swept to destruction in a flash. Searchers afterward found the safe within a few hundred feet of McGuigan, and the wreckage ofthe camp scattered along the
trail of the avalanche for three miles.
The warning was quickly sent to the
Rambler mine, from which a relief expedition came and recovered Douglas'
remains and bore them to Sandon,
where they now await the last sad rites.
Macdonald was brot down the bUl, but
is not seriously injured.
The avalanche was sudden, swift and
terrible. Its work of destruction was
complete. Of the $15,000 invested in
the freighting outfit nothing remains
but the teams that were on the road.
In less time than he could say it, Powers saw himself $10,000 poorer and his
companion kHtedr''''The snowslide's

and secure the establishment of a county

hajl was built the Province stood a part
ofthe expense on  the. condition  that
court chambers should be  provided in
the municipal building.    These chambers were built iq compliance  with the
government's specifications and are all
ready   for' otic'upancy.     They   are  in
every  way  adapted to the "business,
whereas the  Nelson  court  house is a
rickety, ramshackle affair in which the
litigants endanger their health by visiting:    In every court which is held in
Nelson by far the   greater part  of  the
litigation   is   from   the  Slocan.    One
attorney visited Nelson this week with
no less than nine Sandon  cases  on his
hands���enuf alone to justify  the establishment of a county court here.    Kaslo
in which not one   half the   business of
the old district  originates,   also  has a
county court which  sits  every quarter,
and in that court also the greater part
of the business is from Sandon.
It is a matter of rank injustice to
to this town that it has so long been
deprived of a county court, and action
should be taken at the earliest possible
moment to see that it is secured.

SANDON, MAY io, igo2.
Some   people   in   United   States
appear to be quite   hostile about   the
application   of  the  water   cure to the
natives   in   the   Philippines.    This is
inconsistent on  the  part  of the great
American  people.    They   have   gone
into a war with the intention of raising
hell in Asia;  then when   their military
agents use   a   barbrrian   enemy   in a
thoroly   warlike   manner   they   kick.
What did   they   send the   army there
for anyway ?    A soldier is���or should
be���a wholesale murder, a  red handed
cut throat and a genuine all round son
of a gun.    He is paid for  killing, ravaging, devestating and giving the other
fellow the worst of it   in   any  old way
that comes handy.    With him, murder
is a fine art.     The more men he kills,
the greater a hero he becomes.    Carnage, cruelty, torture,  rapine  and   lust
are  essential features  of   a  well-conducted   war.      War   is   hell, and  the
more hell a soldier  injects, the   better
the soldier.    If he pumps the   nigger
full of swamp water  and then  tramps
the liver out of him, that is good mili-
tarv tactics,     Of course   the   nio-p-er
may burst, but that is one of the dangers of expansion.     If the soldier burns
towns,   slaughters  helpless   heathens,
massacres   women   and  children   and
turns the scene of his operations into a
literal hell so infernally hellish that the
clerical hell would be  double discounted, that is military genius.     Humanity
and sentiment have  no  place   in war.
Sparing life is displaying  effeminacy.
Quarter is a concession to  squeamish-
ness.    The soldier's  hobby should be
to raise the dath rate  and increase the
percentage of misery.     That  is  what
all these modern   war  appliances   are
for, and the water cure is  certainly an
effective system of making the Philippine   miserable.    The   United   States
should either reward the  inventors of
the water cure or admit that  war is a
wrong policy and call  the soldiers off.
The two per cent mineral tax is
attracting considerable attention, and
the low grade camps have a strong
kick coming as they claim that the
tax is not two per cent but in many
cases 30 or 40���not of  the output but
of the profits. That is to say, money
received for ore raised is in many instances returned to the ground for
further develoament, instead of being
distributed as profits. Consequently
some mines might raise several hundred thousand tons of rock and pay two
per cent on it all but never pay any
dividends. Therefore when the dividends finally accrue they are earned
from ore developed by money out of
which the two per cent has already
been paid, in some cases many times
over; nevertheless the tax is again
The low grade man's argument is
fallacious in this particular, that it
matters nothing whether the returns
from ore shipped are distributed to the
shareholders as dividends or "applied
for the further development of the
property, thereby increasing its value,
the profit ���when there is one -goes to
the  shareholder just the same.
The fallacy  of   the   two per cent
tax is in its fundamental principle.     It
aims to tax industry and exempt privilege.    This is inherently   wrong.    The
enterprising mine  owner   who   works
his property and adds to  the wealth of
the country, pays the tax.    The   other
fellow, who may hold property capable
of   equal    or    greater    development,
escapes so long as he   refuses to work.
He may not   be   making   anything by
lying idle but he is certainly depriving
others, who might work the ground, of
access thereto.    Therefore   lie   should
pay equally with the   man   who works
to the limit the   resources  at  his command.    Any tax on   output is   manifestly wrong in   principle  and   effect.
Any tax based on   the value of the resources within the control of the owner
of such resources  cannot  be otherwise
than just.    Consequently the   mineral
tax should be  altered so as  to bear on
privilege and exempt industry.  Charge
the owner who does not work his claim
equally with the owner who does work
and the   non-worker   will   become   a
worker   or   relinquish   his    holdings.
Land and the products of land natural-
l>^belong to the whole people, and the
basic moral principle of private owner-
snip is incorporated in a   title in    usufruct.    No man is  good enuf to   lock
up any section of land which might  be
profitably worked by himself or others,
and any law, taxation   or   system   of
ownership   which   tends   to   promote
such monopoly is   inherentlv   wrong.
No man should be  deprived of   access
to   any   latent    resource   unused   by
others, and any law, taxation or system
of ownership which   tends to   promote
such freedom is right.
This is scientific single tax in
capsul form. We recommend it to the
careful consideration of Colonel Prior
and others who are at sea on the ques
tion   of   mineral   tax.    i U1,   ;��

The tempter halted where she stood
Sweet in her spotless maidenhood ;
He sot to charm her with a smile;
She turned her fair sweet face away ;
He thot of nattering words to say,
And praised her for her beauty while
She prayed for grace and left him there:
Her heart was pure, her face was fair,
And he touched only to defile.
Another day the tempter came
And sot to dazzle with his fame,
Which men had heralded abroad ;
He praised her for her girlish grace,
He babbled of her "angle face"
And ofthe "saintly paths" she trod ;
He promised love and faith and ease,
And spoke of journeys over seas.
She left him, with her trust in God.
Once more he met her when she strayed
Alone along the path ; he paid
No pretty compliments nor tried
With love to set her'heart aflame,
But said: "The one that I  shall claim
To sit in splendor at my side
Shall be ablaze with gems !" She threw
Her arms around his neck and drew
His lips  to   hers   and   laughed and
manded the score back to the eighth
inning. An effort will be made to
bring the teams together in West Virginia.

Apropos of all the litigation going on
in the National League, the following
dispatch may be of interest :���
Fantown, Pa., May 3.���The championship between Fantown and Rooters-
ville is siill unsettled. They played a
great game today and Fantown would
have won but for the action of the
Supreme court. At the beginning of
the last half of the ninth inning the
score was a tie and Fantown was in.
Flynn came to bat and would have
struck out, but Judge Fowler of Fan-
town granted an injunction restraining
the pitcher from throwing a curved
ball. This made it look like a cinch
until Judge Striker of Rootersville issued an interim injunction to prevent
Flynn foom hitting the ball. Finally
he got to first on four bad ones. He
stole second, but Rootersville got out a
writ of replevin and recovered the base,
Flynn advancing to third.
Nolan made a hit, but was declared
oul for contempt of court. Then up
came mighty Sweeny. He went to
first on writ of error. It was all excitement. Every Fantown man on the
bleachers was in a fight with a Rootersville neighbor. Captain Sullivan of

Bnother   Case   of Mater
The   city authorities   on   Thursday
undertook   to   remove   the  Minnesota
Company's intake from  the city flume,
but met   with  resistance   and the  job
was not completed.     The city  council
on Monday night passed   a   resolution
to notify the company to  remove their
intake,   which   was   claimed   to   be a
menace  lo lhe   flume,  and   gave   the
company until  the 8th   to lake   it out.
This the Minnesota company refused to
do,   claiming that   the intake   was no
source of danger, and lhat by removing
it the company  would  forfeit its water
records.    Failing  action on the part of
the company, the  city   sent   workmen
there on Thursday morning to chop the
intake out, but   P. J. Hickey,   superintendent of the Minnesota arrived on the
scene and stood on   his   rights   by refusing to let   the work  proceed.    Alter
a brief parley the matter was left in the
hands of the   gold   commissioner   and
will no doubt   be   amicably   adjusted.
As the city merely wants  to  protect its
flume, which the company  is  satisfied
should be done   in   case   a   danger is
proven to   exist, and   the  companv on
the other hand   desires  only to   protect
its water   rights,    which   the   city   is
ready to give it every  assistance to do,
there is no occasion for friction.
