was let to Larsen, Stewart & Welch,
who sub-let the grading to Mayor
Carlson of Kaslo and the bridge work

in Montreal to slop construction as
there was a flaw in Welch's contract.

suspension of operations.
Ore on the Donnelley.
A strike of clean ore was made in the
Donnelley claims on Wednesday. The
tind was in the upper tunnel. The
drift had run past the ore body, missing
it altogether, but by crosscutting the
ledge pay ore was r evealed. It is too
early yet to determine the value of the
discovery. Owners of the Donnelley
claims are elated at the lind.
Who Will Be Mayor?
The question of a mayorality candidate is just now the only .live issue before the Sandon citizens. George
Lovatt has delegated himself a candidate and will run for mavor on his own
ticket. So far no one has been found
ready to pilfer himself in opposition,
altho Robt. Jalland's friends are earnestly requesting him to run. Mr. Jalland is very reticent about accepting
the honor, but may be prevailed on to
do so before the day of nomination
comes around.
An alderman is also wanted but no
aldermanic candidates are in sight yet.

KASLO May 17th ��� Arrangements
have just been completed to pull off a

The Comique building has been
leased for the occasion and repairs are
now under way. The tight will be for
a heavy purse and a percentage of the
gate. A red hot mill is promised.
There will be no police interference.
Accident at the Queen Bess.
P. L. Morgan was seriously injured
by a cave at the Queen Bess mine yesterday morning at 10 o'clock. Dr.
Gomm went up the hill and brot the
patient down to Three Forks and a
special trip was made with the C. P. R.
engine last night to bring him up to
the Miners' Hospital.
Yesterday's Spokesman-Review tells
of rumors that are Hying around in the
Coeur d'Alenes regarding a possible
purchase of lhe big lead producers of
that camp by the smelter combine.
None ofthe mine owners seem to know
where they are at in that camp and
no one has a definite plan for the future
but consolidations are freely talked of
and there is a general presentiment
that there is something big in the wind.
The forces at many of the big mines
have been cut down on two or three
occasions but afterward put on again
and there seems to be a general uncertainty as to whether the properties
will be allowed to work or not.
Should the trust take over the Coeur
d'Alenes properties it will thereby come
into possession of mines proCucing over
50 per cent of the lead output ofthe
L'nited Slates and would henceforth oe
able to manipulate the U. S. lead
market in whatever manner suits the
combine. It is not unlikely that the
rumors of purchase have some grounding of truth. The same interests as
are behind the trust are credited with
owning the Bunker Hill& Sullivan and
having heavy interests in other large
producers and it would not be surprising" to see the Rockefeller group of
capitalists take over the whole industry
in the Idaho lead camp.
ELECTRICITY IN MINING.
J. M. Harris Will Use Electric Drills
in the Reco.
The incorporation papers and water
rights for the electric power company
which J. M. Harris is organizing to
construct a plant at Three Forks have
been awarded by the provincial government and will be received in Sandon
on Monday or Tuesday. The intention
as is already well known, is to build a
large plant to furnish electric power to
be used for mining purposes on Slocan
properties,
In order to demonstrate the practicability of using electric power instead
of air or steam for operating drills, a
line will be contrut ted next month by
the Sandon Water & Light Co. to the
Reco mine and a Gardner drill put to
work there. The Gardner is the most
improved of electric drills and it is meeting with great favor wherever tried.
This line ofthe Water & Light Co.
will afterwards be operated by the
Three Forks outfit.
J. M. Harris leaves on Tuesday for a
30-day visit to his home in Virginia,
Construction on the electric line will be
commenced  immediately on his return. THE PAYSTREAK, SANDON, B. C, MYA 18,
BEFORE IT IS TOO LATE.
If you've a grey-haired mother
In the old home far away,
Sit down and write the letter
You put off day by day.
Don't wait until her tired steps
Reach heaven's pearly gate
But show her that you think of her
Before it is too late.
If.you've a tender message
Or a loving word to say,
Don't wait till you forget it,
But whisper it today.
Who knows what bitter memories
May haunt you if you  wait,
So make your loved one happy
Before it is too late.
We live but in the present,
The future is unknown ;
Tomorrow is a mystery,
Today is all our own.
The chance that fortune lends us
May vanish while we wait,
So make your loved one happy
Before it is too late.
We live but in the present,
The future is unknown;
Tomorrow is a mystery,
Today is all our own.
The chance that fortune lends to us.
May vanish while we wait,
So spend your life's rich treasure
Before it is too late.
The tender words unspoken,
The letters never sent,
The long forgotten messages,
The wealth of love unspent���
For these some hearts are breaking,
For these some loved ones wait;
So  show them  that you care for them
Before it is too late.
What the War Cost.
President Kruger of the South African republic said, or is reported to have
said, that if the British wanted to take
his country he would make them pay
$500,000,000 for it. The South African
war has cost already $750,000,000.
And, as it is admitted that the war expenditure is going on at the rate of
$1,000,000 per day, and immense sums
will have to be paid in the way of compensation and assistance to ruined farmers, thru the Kitchener plan of making
the country an empty desert, it is a conservative estimate that the total cost of
the South African war will not fall short
of $1,000,000,000���a sum equivalent
to three times the cost of the Crimean
war and one third of the debt incurred
by Great Britain in the fight for her
life with Napoleon.
The McGill Excursion.
The summer school of the mining
department of the McGill university was
in Sandon for two days, Wednesday
and Thursday, investigating the science
of mining in the Slocan. The party
consists of Dr. Porter, professor of mining in the university; Dr. Frank
Adams, professor of geology; Mr.
Draper, lecturer in metallurgy, and 23
students. On Thursday the party
divided into two sections, one visiting
the Slocan Star mine and the other
the Payne, where they examined the
.workings of the properties under the
instruction of the professors. They
left on Friday morning for Nelson and
Rossland.

Ups and Dotons in a Mining Country
The ups and downs of fortune in the
lead mining region are thus described
in The Galena (Kan.) Republican:
"On our streets we can point to men
who could not draw a check for io
cents six months ago. Now they can
draw their check for $10,000��� and the
bank wouldn't accept it. Yonder is a
man who walked Into Galena as a
tramp a year ago. Today he is a
porter in a hotel. Here comes a man
who borrowed 10 cents of us last week
to get a glass of milk. Now he wants
to borrow 10 cents more. He says he
wants to buy a meal. He dines on
liquid meal-.. Another, who was put
in the lockup and borrowed money to
pay his line was arrested again the
other day and sent to jail. He couldn't
borrow anything this time. Here's
another man who came here with his
lasl cenl in his pocket. Last month he
drew a check for $20,000. He, too, is
in jail. He signed another man's
name to the check. Such are llie ups
and downs of lead mining life. Here
today, in jail tomorrow.
DAM HAD HIM BLUFFED.
Chose Axes to Fight a Duel  With a
Russian.
Dan Mann has never gained any
notoriety as a fighting man, but that
lie is a good bluffer is evidenced by the
following story, which comes from
Ottawa. It happened two years ago
when Dan was in China looking up
some big railway concessions. One
evening at the club in Tien-Tisn an
altercation broke out between a Russian
and a French officer. Dan was appealed to as umpire and gave his decision
in favor of the Frenchman. This so
enraged the Russian that next morning
he sent a second to Mr. Mann demanding satisfaction. Only for a moment
was the sturdy Canadian railroad contractor surprised, and then recollecting
lhat according to the code governing
duelling the choice of weapons lay with
him, he promptly accepted the challenge
and named the national weapon of
Canada, the axe, with which the duel
should be fought. The Russian was
llabnergasted. He had never heard of
a duel fought with axes and the prospect was not an inviting sine. He sent
his second to Dan again with an apology expressing regret for his ebullition
of bad temper, and the fight was called
off. Since then the Russian and the
Canadian have been firm friends.
Baseball In New Denoer.
An aggregation of would-be baseball
players from Sandon went down to New
Denver lasl Saturday lo beat the lake
side sports at lhe great American game
���but they didn't do iti New Denver
saw them coming and the game that
was pulled off on lhe sand lot there
that afternoon would make the shade
of Anson weep. The report that the

free for all raee around the bases is not
literally true, but after the first innings
it was more like a crke walk than anything else on earth. According to the
most reliable reports the score stood
something like 24 to 31 in favor of New-
Denver, but as only six innings were
played it is hard to say what the aggregate mileage of runs would have
represented had the game been plryed
out. The names of the players are not
given out for publication.

THE KASLO CELEBRATION.
There toill be a Warm Time in the
Lake Tot-on on Victoria Day.
This Year's celebration in Kaslo
promises to be better than any previous
event in the town's history. Kaslo has
celebrated the 24th of May since ever
the Slocan has been, and they intend
to continue to do so. This year they
have incorporated more enthusiasm
than ever in their efforts, and the dull
times in other lines are to be counterbalanced by a brilliant celebration.
1 There will be canoe races, yacht races,
rowing races, running, jumping, tug
of war and all Caledonian sports.
Sandon and New Denver will play
Kaslo baseball. Nelson will play Kaslo
football. Sandon, Kaslo and Nelson
will compete in the hose reel contests.
Bands from Sandon and Nelson will
furnish music. The days proceedings
will be wound up by a grand dance in
the evening. Excursions at single fare
for the round trip will be run from all
points in the interior, There is every
indication that Kaslo's Victoria Day
blowout will be the premier celebration
of the Kootenay.
 m,	
Silcerton's Celebration.
Silverton is in the celebration business
again this vear and will do the thing
up as well as circumstances will permit.
The Sandon football team, the New
Denver band and numerous other attractions and horseraces will be presented. The usual excursions will be
run from Sandon, and while this year's
demonstration may not outclass the
last, it will   nevertheless   be a hot one.
VICTORIA DAY,
-AT*
Ikaelo
The Sensationational Celebration of the Season,
LOCAL.
Fred Hulten has sold his interest in
the Miners' Hotel to his partner, Andy
Hendrickson, who will conduct the
business hereafter. Fred left on Thursday for the Lardeau country, and will
afterwards go north to Dawson or Cape
Nome.
J. C. Moore, provincial road inspector, went down to Silverton on Tuesday to make arrangements for the constriction of the Red Mountain road.
The grant for this road lapses on the
30th of June and some tall hustling
will have to be done in order to complete the work before that date.
We presume Mr. Dooley had not
heard of Sandon when he said : "A
polishman goes afther vice as an officer
of the law an' conies away a philosopher. The theory iv mesilf, Hogan,
Croker an' other lamed men is that
vice, whin it's broke is a crime, an'
when it's got a bank account is a necessity."
Alex Lucas, who has a larger circle
of acquaintances than any other man in
British Columbia has gone into the
newspaper business again. Alex has
been a professional politician for the
'past couple of years, acting as provincial organizer for the conservative
party. In the early days of Calgary he
was mayor of the ranch centre and
edited the Calgary Herald in a manner
that made him famous. Nsw he has
connected himself with the Revelstoke
Herald and Railway Men's Journal,
and his voice will be heard thruout the
land once more.
EVERYBODY  WILL  BE
there and the greatest day's
sport ever pulled off in the
Kootenay will be transacted

ROMANCE OF KOOTENAY LAKE.
Ihe Sad Fate of Some Kaalo Bot*s
Who went Fishing on
Sunday.
\ sad a flair occurred on Kootenay
Ike lasl Sunday. The- way the play
jiiiiu up was something like this. A
laiiv of Kaslo's brilliant youths held a
Saturday-night re-union ill which they
jecideh to go fishing on Sunday morn-
Remembering the historic warn-
igofthe governor sif Georgia to the
bvernor of Carolina, thai it's a long
pne between drinks, they telephoned
i, the brewery for a keg of the amber
laid.
But false friends were nigh.
The keg was placed   in a  cool cellar
\\d the boys slept serenly,   dreaming
lautiful dreams   of  lish   that swam in
nber lakes under peaceful skies fleck-
with clouds id* fleecy froth.
But,   as   heretofore   implied,    false
fiiiuU wire nigh,
Wm   morning   as   the   gladdening
fciys ofthe rising sun   kissed the Mushing mountain peaks   to   crimson dawn,
he jovial party of  fishermen pulled for
he other shore, leaving   Kaslo  and its
urewery far to the lee.
Bul they had the keg along.
With    great   solemnity   they    vowed
hat   the tl ui J  should not   flow until a
Itish had been landed.    The denizens sif
|the deep seemed   to be   in the   plot for
���while the drought   became intense they
resolutely refused to   bite, but   with admirable fortitude the   fishermen   waited
[until finally   a    poor   blind    trout    go.
���tangled in the tackle.      Then   the boys
[thanked their sporting  goddesses that
Ion a desolute lake with   nothing liquid
in sight but water thev had at least one
Ikeg of comfort to quench their burning
thirst, and the ceremony of tapping the
receptacle was   proceeded   with.     Like
I'haro's daughter when   she opened the
basket   in   the   hullrushes,    they   bent
lover in eager expectance  and when the
il'uid Rowed   with foam   and bead   they
���smacked their lips and	
'Horror  of  honors!    What   is  it?
Ugh !    Water ! ! ! !"
Nothing but water and soda. And
four miles from home. Nature alone
records the rest. The beautiful budding
trees end tho velvet sward in the neighborhood of Fry creek are blasted by the
fumes of brimstone emitted in imprecation on those false friends who in the
tragic hour of the nighl drained the
keg of the stuff that made Milwaukee
famous and replaced therein common
laundry liquid with a little soda to make
it  liz.
Fred. Urban left on Wednesday for
Dawson City.
J- A. Hogan will spend the summer
in the Klondike. He left for Dawson
tarly this week.
Tom Tighe was in Sandon last Saturday and Sunday, previous to leaving

building commence in a very short
time.
