promise near Everett, Washington.
Miners and minors are stampeding
to the new placer discoveries on the

Ashcroft, in the Cariboo country. It is
predicted the ground will pan $20 a
day to the man.
Frank C. Sewell and Andrew Grierson have made the Sandon Rink company an offer for the use of the rink for

and romances of Ephrim are going the

the outfit hid under a bunk and the rest
of the gang went on strike because they
could not get under there too. However, as the-man who was supposed to
have hidden under the h,uuk was in the
hills when bears were the only company
a prospector had this part of the story
is no doubt a tangled romance.

RAILWAY   OFFICIALS.
Visit Sandon   and   Gice   Rise   to
Rumors.
A party of C. P. R. officials came in
over the K. & S. yesterday and stayed
at the Reco over night. The members
ofthe party were: R. Marpole, superintendent of the Pacific division; Cam-
bie, chief engineer; Grant Hall, master
mechanic, and Downie, superintendent
of the Kootenay division. Sweeney of
the Bank of Montreal, Vancouver, accompanied the party.
Their arrival over the K. & S. has
been sufficient excuse to revive the
rumor that the C. P. R. is going to
take over the chippie road.
Baseball in the Future.
Altho it is many months until the
baseball season will open again an
effort will be made this winter to form
a baseball league in the Slocan. Silverton, New Denwr, Slocan City and
Sandon will participate and a regular
schedule for next season will be arranged. Only Simeon pure amateurs
will be allowed to twirl. Sandon ball
playen will make a determined effort
thia winter to secure a ground close to
town on whioh they will be able to entertain visiting teams. Jim Bowes of
Silverton, one ot tho most ardent sports
in tlu- Kootenay, i> a prime mover in
the tarnation of the league.
The contract for the Payne mill was
let this week to Folliott & McMillan,
and T. B. Folliott left on Thursday for
Laurie to commence moving the
machinery.
The Payne has purchased the Lanark
mill, which was put in at Laurie several
years ago, bat never used. This plant
was put in by the Grant-Govan company, but the mine was a fake and the
plant never turned a wheel. Part of
the machinery was still on the cars
when operations were suspended. It is
reported that the Payne got possession
of the mitt- on very reasonable terms
and it is now proposed to move the
whole plant from mudsill to stringer
and put it up at the Payne siding.
The mill will be placed on the K & S.
right-of-way just the other side of the
present ore sheds and terminal.
The power to operate the mill will be
furnished by a flume from the Payne
creek. About 150 horse-power will be
developed. Electric dynamos will be
put in at the mill to supply power and
light for the mine and to light the mill.
Superintendent Garde figures that
there are 100,000 tons of rock in the
back-filling of the mine which will pay
for handling thru the mill. This will
make a three years' run for the plant.
The work of moving and reconstruction will be rushed and the mill
will be grinding early in the spring.
Folliott & McMillan already have the
bunk house and boarding house at the
siding nearly completed. These buildings will be for the accommodation of
the construction gang and the mill men.
At the Payne mine one of the electric
drills was tested yesterday. The electric
energy is furnished by a dynamo run
by a gasoline engine at the mouth of
the No. 8 tunnel. On a 16 minutes
run the drill made 43 inches in hard
rock.
J. Pierpont Morgan passed through
Spokane this week and a dozen boys
followed along the track four miles
searching.for the $20 gold pieces which
they thought might have jarred loose
from the millionaire. They were very
young boys or they would have known
better.
When the Noble Five was closed
down there was a doubt as to the
reason. This doubt is dispelled by the
action of James Dunsmuir in filing
notice in the Victoria court that a suit
to recover the amount due htm is pending. The Noble Five has had a rather
checkered history. At the time Dunsmuir took the property over it was
badly in debt and to secure himseli he
took a mortgage on the mine and mill
for $150,000. Since then Dunsmuir
has advanced money to continue work
and at the present time it is something
like $180,000 in debt. The mortgage
expired last February, but at the time
of the annual meeting which took place
shortly after it was announced that the
mortgage would not be foreclosed, but
that the property would be allowed to
pay itself out. At that time, however,
the property had a very poor showing
but since then the work done on the
Maude E ground and thru the Last
Chance tunnel has made the Noble
Five one of the most promising properties in British Columbia. In fact the
property has jumped in thirty days
from being a dead horse to being a
paying mine. Following these discoveries comes the announcement that
Dunsmuir will foreclose.
Jas. Dunsmuir, Jos. Martin and
B. J. Perry are the principal stockholders. Previous to the shut down the
stock sold at 10 cents with a strong
upware tendency. How the stock will
stand after the sale remains to be seen.
According to the Kootenaian there is a
rumor current that the minority stock
holders will make an effort to pay the
mortgage off. Parties interested claim
that the property could pay itself out in
three months and leave the stockholders
one of the best assets in the Kootenay.
While there is no question about
Dunsmuir's legal right to foreclose, his
action in so doing after promising
not to is regarded by many as a coldblooded swindle.
The Assessment.
The court of revision has just completed its work and the assessment rolls
have been totalled. The figures are:
Land, $106,820; buildings, $131,440;
total, $238,260.
The tax rate last year was 27 >�� mills
on 50 per cent of improvements and the
full value of land. At this rate the
total taxation for 1901 would represent
$4,744.85, against $3,797.69 last year.
Buildings in the burnt district were not
assessed last year.

THE DREAMER.
A knock at the door���but he
Was dreaming a dream of fame,
And the one who knocked drew softly
back
And never again he came.
A knock at the door���so soft���
As soft���as# shy���as a dove,
But the   dreamer   dreamed  until the
guest was gone���
And the guest was Love.
A knock at the door���again
The dreamer dreamed away
Unheeding���deaf to the gentle call
Of the one who came that day.
A knock at the door���no more
The guest at the door came,
Yet the dreamer dreamed ofthe one
who called���
For the guest was Fame.
A knock at the door���but still
He gave no reply;
And  the waiting guest gave a cheerv
hail
Ere he slowly wandered by.
A knock at the door in dreams,
The dreamer fain would grope,
Till the guest stole on with a humbled
sigh���
And the guest was Hope.
A knock at the door���'twas loud,
With might in every stroke,
And the dreamer stopped in his dreaming thot,
And suddenly awoke.
A knock at the door���he ran,
With the swiftness of a breath,
And  the door swung wide,   and  the
guest came in���
And the guest was Death.
Meanest Man on Record.
Not long ago the wife of a western
Kansas politician asked him to lay aside
politics long enough one day to dig the
potatoes in the garden. He agreed to
do it. After digging for a few minutes
he went into the house and said he
found a coin. He washed it otT and it
proved to be a silver quarter. He put
it in his jeans and went back to work.
Presently he went to the house again
and said he had found another coin.
He washed the dirt off of it. It was a
silver half dollar. He put it in his
jeans. "1 have worked pretty hard,"
he said to his wife. "I guess I'll take
a short nap." When he woke he
found that his wife had dug all the
potatoes. But she found no coins. It
then dawned upon her that she had
been *' worked."
Daoin's Last Poem.
The following is the last literary
effort of Nicolas Flood Davin, It is
entitled ".A Few Brief Hours."    ,
A few brief hours���how quick they fly���
Our barks together bore.
Away! black clouds begrim the sky,
'     Go seek the safer shore.
For round my boat will billows foam,
Ahead will breakers roll.
Away! who fain with me would roam
Musi bear no shrinking soul.
I do do not blame���I don't complain,
You should lie close and warm;
For me, I love the hurricane,
Am kindred with the storm.
Because my star's obscured from view
Dou-bt fills your faltering breast;
But my heart's needle still points true���
To God I leave the rest.
Too Much Pepper. B
One of the most prominent
preachers tells the following anecdote
as a fact whenever he hears a story too
incredible for belief: "A very wicked
man became converted. In course of
time it became his turn to pray in class
meeting. Not being used to speaking
in public, of course he was very much
embarassed. This is the substance of
the prayer: 'Oh, Lord, Thou giver of
all good things, look down with pity
on poor people. You are rich and can
spare them plenty to eat while on earth
Send every one of them a full barrel of

The Poor Man's Church.
Labor organizations are truly the
poor man's church. They are for the
social, moral, intellectual and financial
elevation of mankind. They bind men
closer together in friendship, assist
each other in attaining a higher
efficiency in the various pursuits of the
trade upon which depends their daily-
bread, assist a brother when out of
employment. When sickness and
death visit a member's family the
society furnishes to the bereaved both
moral and financial support.

World's Trades Are to Be Reoolu-
tionized bq Picket's Discooenj.
London Mail.
It was recently announced that the
new Swiss method of producing oxygen
for industrial purposes had been taken
up by a powerful  English syndicate.
The inventor,   M.   R'aoul  Pictet, who
claims that his process enables him to
obtain unlimited  supplies of the gas
from the atmosphere at  nominal cost,
has supplied our Geneva correspondent
with additional particulars of his great
discovery���a    discovery   which,   it   is
asserted, will completely revolutionize
the metal trades, and have a  vast  influence   on   chemistry,   lighting,  and
hygiene.
The details given are for the most
part in M. Pictet's own words, and the
conclusions he arrives at are for experts
to consider. There is no doubt as to
the fact that the discovery has been
widely taken up in England.
It took the inventor twenty-one years
of experiments to find out that the usual
method of extracting oxygen from the
air by chemical means was impracticable for commercial purposes on account of the enormous cost the chemical
process.
Taking for a starting point the rein 1877  by  scientists,
in future in one piece.
Industrial oxygen will reduce the
hardest rocks such as quartz to liquid
state in a short time, and the mining
industry will be revolutionized, and
crushing superseded by melting.
The practice of chemistry will be immensely benefited, says M. Pictet. The
cost of innumerable chemical products
will be greatly reduced. One of the
chief instances of this will be water gas,
so much used in chemical industries,
which will be obtainable at a cost of a
tenth of a penny per cubic yard. The
result of this for lighting purposes will
be tremendous.
It is only a question of time, says the
inventor, before every public building
will be supplied with oxygen pipes, and
"stuffiness" in theatres, scools, and
other buildings will be unknown.
For hospitals, and especially in the
operating room, oxygen, which on account of its prohibitive price could not
be put into general use, will be employed more freely. Every town will
have its oxygen manufactory in a few-
years, M. Pictet adds, and coal will be
superseded by oxygen. I	
A large oxygen manufactory is being
built at Manchester under the superin
intendence of Messrs. Galloway, in
which it will be possible to produce
5,000 cubic y.irds of industriail oxygen
per day.
When Is a Man Drunk ?
When is a man drunk!   This long
debated question is yet far from being
settled.    The   Chief Justice of New
Zealand has recently given a decision QAMTJON
affecting this point, which has excited *
some comment in England. He has
held that "a man cannot be regarded
legally or otherwise as drunk so long
as he can ask for more drink or pay
for what he is supplied him." Lest a
wrong motive should be assigned for
this judgment,  it should be explained
that the Chief Justice is said to be a
total abstainer.     Some day we may
have a judgment that will tell us when
a man may be said legally to be drunk.
We recollect reading some years ago
of the decision  of an English judge in
such a case, his dictum being:
Not drunk is he that from the floor
Can rise alone and drink still more;
But drunk is he that prostrate lies,
Without the power to drink or rise."

while that of nitrogen under the same
conditions is minus 10.5 degrees, he
constructed an ingenious apparatus by
means of which he was enabled to
gradually extract the nitrogen, leaving
the oxygen in the apparatus practically
pure. V
The apparatus is divided into ten
equal parts separated from each other
by a metallic plate, to which is attached
a basin containing a certain amount of
liquified air. A spiral tube conducts
the liquefied air to the basins. This
exterior tube, called the exchanger, is
continued, under the name of inferior
tube, within the apparatus, and winds
round the metallic basin.
When a slight pressure is applied to
the liquefied gas by means of the exchanger, nitrogen of 90 per cent purity
is liberated. This action. is continued
in each of the ten divisions until in the
bottom one only pure oxygen remains
and is drawn off in a gasometer.
The cost oi the operation is less than
the tenth of a penny per cubic yard of
oxygen.
M. Pictet claims that the results of
the application of this system to metallurgical work will be extraordinary.
He maintains that the enormous waste
ot coal in the working of metals will be
done away with, and that immensely
greater temperatures will be obtainable
by the use of industrial oxygen.
Soldering large masses of iron and
steel will be an easy matter, and riveting will be done away with. The

railway lines, etc., may be constructed

"A teaspoonful," was the ready reply.
The professor made no comment, but
the student, a quarter of an hour later,
realized  that  he had  made a mistake
and straightway said:
"Professor I want to change my
answer to that question."
"It's too late, sir," responded the
professor, curtly, looking at his watch;
"your patient has been dead fourteen
minutes."

SANDON, OCTOBER 26, 1901.
It is now up to the Sandon city
council to hold a delinquent tax sale
and gather in all the money that is
coming to the corporation on overdue
taxes.
With the present careful administration civic affairs are becoming less
tangled. The running expenses are
already considerably less than the
current income. From the overdue
taxes sufficient money should be realized to cancel the floating debt and
catch up with the sinking fund. The
Corporation of the City of Sandon
should start off the year 1902 with a
clean sheet.
Gilbert Malcolm Sproat owns
more Sandon real estate than any other
one man. He has taken every dollar
he could lay hands on out of the town.
Previous to incorporation, when his
partner, John M. Harris, was spending
thousands of dollars improving the
town, Mr. Sproat refused to put up a
bean. Since incorporation he has
not paid his taxes. He has refused to
sell lots at any price and has charged
starvation rates for ground rent and
in other way he has hampered the
progress of the community. Mr.
Sproat owes the city a large amount
for taxes. These taxes are now overdue and recoverable by a delinquent
tax sale. The city council should
cinche Gilbert Malcolm Sproat to a
hard oil finish. The corporation needs
the money.
John M. Harris owes the city
considerable money for taxes. The
city owes the Sandon Water & Light
Co. an account extending over two
years. John M. Harris has offered to
accept tax receipts on the water and
light account. This is reasonable and
the council should get the matter
straightened out immediately so that
Sandon may start the new year with a
clean sheet.
Kaslo's delinquent tax sale netted
the city over $3,000.
Profssional politicians and
flunkey newspapers are howling for
party lines in B. C. The introduction
of party lines will  place the   govern-
The redistribution which cannot
be much longer shelved will give
Kootenay and the Boundary eight
seats in the provincial legislature.
Every one of these constituencies is in
the hands of working miners who are
thoroly organized and capable of
taking care of their own political
affairs. They will elect a solid delegation of labor men to the next legislature.    Fetch on your party lines.
Premier Dunsmuir should call
an extra session of the legislature and
re-enact the disallowed anti-Mongolian
legislation. Dunsmuir is a coward ;
otherwise he would take this step.
Some day the Fraser River fisheries, the Island colleries or the Cariboo
hydraulics will be the scene of a worse
massacre than the famous outburst at
Rock Springs.
Deprive men of the right to make
an honest living and you outlaw them
from society. That is exactly what
the Mongolian invasion is doing for
the wage-earners of B. C. If these
socially outlawed men occasionally
become desperate it should not occasion surprise.
Teddy Roosevelt is up against
Southern sentiment strong. Teddy
the Rough Rider who carried San Juan
with the ease of a football rush; Teddy
the Terrible who kills wildcats as an
appetizer; Teddy the Reformer who
laughs at the Machine and appoints
office holders from the other party;
Teddy the great, the only, the Republican star, the Nation's hope, he of the
six-shooter, the wide hat, the big teeth
and the large ambition is up against
the real thing now. He has insulted
prejudice, slighted sentiment and rode
rough-shod over the customs and
usages of the "wah-hosses" ofthe south.
He has been guilty of the heinous,
horrible, monstrous offense of speaking
civilly to a nigger. **
Teddy ought to know better. He
should remember that he is in the land
of the free. He should appreciate the
fine sarcasm of the declaration of independence and recognize the humor of
the proclamation of emancipation. He
should keep in mind the amendment to
God's laws which places these played
out aristocrats of the south above any
choclate colored preacher or scholar,
no matter what ability,accomplishments
or genius the dusky philosofer may display. Otherwise these .senile relics of
past greatness who live in memories of
a dead age may ostracise Teddy and
call him a mugwump. What a
horrible fate.
British Columbia has the most
cultus lot of legislators this far north.
No matter what they tackle they seem
to get it inside outside inside. This is
sadly illustrated in their advertising.
In trying to make known the mineral
resources of this province the B. C.
government seems to go on the assumption that Britishers are the only
folks who have money with which to
take a chance in mining. United
States is very carefully avoided. For
instance, at the Glasgow Industrial our
exhibit is one of the finest. At the
Pan there is nothing to remind the
visitor that B. C. is on the map. In
London J. H. Turner is re-opening
the provincial office. In New York,
Boston, Chicago, St. Louis, Detroit,
Cleveland, San Francisco or Denver a
man might prospect from now till
kingdom come for a B. C. information
bureau but he would never find it.
Advertising in Glasgow and London is all right, but if advertising in
Great Britain pays this province advertising in United States should pay
it ten times better. United States is
the home of the mining capitalist.
The Americans understand mining and
make a success of it. They do not
hoodoo their investments with a lot of
yellow-leg experts and they keep no
sissy cousins pensioned on the payroll. When American capitalists meet
with reverses they go right along, satisfied that they will make a winning on
the next turn. Americans will take
hold of properties in the prospect
stage. The BritiJiher warns a thoroly
developed mine and he usually gets
swindled out of his eye teeth when he
tries to buy one. London has a horde
of crooked stock brokers but it seems
to have a very small percentage oi
legitimate mining men.
The moneyed folks of such towns
as Boston, Cleveland, Denver and
'Frisco have become wealthy in mining
and they are still in the business. If
the B. C. government would drop its
simpering chappy sentiment about the
mother country and do some advertising where there is business to be had
there would be less talk about the lack
of capital in the Kootenay.
To folks not afflicted with the
missionary mania it seems that if Miss
Stone had devdted her energies to
laboring in the neglected vineyard presented to mission work "in U. S. she
would have saved a heap of trouble. THE PAYSTREAK, SANDON, B. C, OCTOBER 26,

THE MAN WITH THE PEN.
From the king to the serf is a far call,
we think,
Yet the symbol of both is a bottle of
ink,
For with prowess   unmeasured���with
work never done���
The man with the pen is the two rolled
in one.
He rules like a monarche be toils like a
slave,
And the rest that he dreams of he finds
in the grave.
When the man with the pen takes the
orders to think,
And swears his allegiance to paper and
ink,
He parts with all pleasures that other
men find
In the fair world about him���his realm
is the mind.
Oh, a wonderful realm is  that region,
I know,
Where  the thot-flowers bloom and the
idea-plants grow.
But  nowhere in serfdom do laborers
toil,
With the pick in the mines, or the hoe
in the soil,
Like   the   slave-mornarch,    gathering
thots out of space
To aid, and amuse, and enlighten the
race.
The king has distractions,  the slave
has his rest,
But the serf-monarch's sleep is a dream-
haunted quest
For ideas���and all the distraction he
knows
Is weaving new garments of words for
old woes,
New garbs for old sorrows, new names
for old sin,
And setting new goals for spent run-
ers to win.
His days are as night, and his nights
are as day,
The stern angel Duty walks with him
alway;
Thru respite,  or slumber, he hears the
word "write,"
And the end of achievement is never in
sight.
Tho he mounts the top round in the
ladder of fame.
The cry ot earth's  hungering hosts is
the same:
It strikes to his marrow and  rouses
again
The toil-weary mind of the man  with
the pen.
The world moves about us a mighty
machine,
And its intricate wheels within  wheels
are unseen,
An   empire is builded,   republics are
born,
A kimdom is  wiped by the finger of
scorn
From the slate of the nations���a lesson
is taught,
A   criminal   punished ��� a   culprit   is
caughfc
A statesman   and lawmaker  rises to
power,
A wave of reform strikes the world in
1
an hour
And sweeps all before it; and  back out
of sight,
As silent and patient, and forceful as
light,
Is the impulse to action, the moulder
of men,
The guider of purpose���the man  with
the pen.
The   man   born   an emperor   rules
while he may,
The millionaire king buys a brief right
of way,
But the monarch of thot, tho his name
is unheard,
Knows that nations unborn by his mind
shall be stirred,
For thot is a dynamite force and when
hurled
It changes the aspect and face of the
world.
The hand of Progress, sweet Charity's
friend,
The eyes for blind Justice, the sword to
defend,
Uncrowned yet a monarch,  no throne
but a den���
God guide him and bless,   him,  the
man with the pen!

STOLE BULLION.
William  Hagler Under   Arrest at
Siloer City, Idaho.
W. L. Hagler, at one time secretary
ofthe Sandon Miners' Union, is under
arrest at Silver City, Idaho, on a charge
of robbing the Trade Dollar Con.
Mining company of ore and bullion to
the extent of several thousand dollars.
The Owyhee Avalanche of October 18
reports the affair as follows :
Sometime yesterday, between Snake
river and Caldwell, $400 worth of ore,
taken from the property of the Trade
Dollar Con. Mining company, was recovered from a rancher's wagon. At
9:45 this forenoon, John Tonkin was
arrested at the United States assay
office at Boise while trying to dispose
of $380 worth of Trade Dollar bullion.
The ore was supposed to have been
stolen in July and August last by a
married man employed at the Trade
Dollar and a single man at the Blaine,
both of whom are now in Salt Lake
City. Thru the help of another married man, who resides in this city, they
were attempting to "lift the ore," by
way of Caldwell; to get it to Salt Lake
City, where it was captured as above
stated.
To make a long slory short, we will
say that for some time past the management of the Trade Dollar mines has
been aware that thefts of ore and bullion
were being made, and for the past six
or eight weeks the company has had
seven Spokane detectives here working
upon the case. Four of these detectives
have been in the various mines of the
company, and the other three have been
about town. Men thought to be connected with the thefts have been
shadowed constantly, with the result
that the company has secured two or
more arrests, recovered nearly $1000
worth of ore and bullion, and has the
names of several parties who are thot
to be directly connected with the nefarious work.
William L. Hagler, who worked at
the Black Jack mill in August, was arrested in town this afternoon, as a
principal in the bullion case. Upon
being promised freedom from prosecution if he would tell the whole truth of
the matter Mr. Hagler stated that a
pan-man named Weggeland had turned
the bullion over to him; that the bullion
was stolen from him (Hagler) at the
time his house was robbed, some two
weeks ago, and that he didn't know
what had become of it.
John Tonkin, who  was arrested at
Boise, has be-in working in one of the
mine blacksmith shops.    He  took  the
bullion to Boise last Tuesday, being accompanied from here by a prominent
insurance man of the capital city���name
not necessary at this time. A detective
was on the same stage. Since his arrest Tonkin has been put through the
"sweat box" by the chief of detectives,
and has made a clean breast of the
whole affair. He involves Mr. Hagler
in the confession and avers that he was
simply acting as Hagler's assistant to
^000000000000000000000000%

dispose of the bullion.
The theory of the mine management
has been that Hagler and two or three
others personally secured the bullion at
the Black Jack mill; that Hagler was
made custodian of the swag; that he
conceived a plan to beat, his partners;
that he got Tonkin, who was an outsider, to rob his house; that when this
was done, Hagler announced to his
partners that he had been robbed; that
Tonkin was to dispose of the bullion
and whack up with Hagler.
Tonkin's confession shows this theory
to be correct.
Hagler, who was allowed to go free
after his alleged confession, has been
re-arrested.
A warrant has been issued for Weggeland, who is now at Blackfoot, this
state. He was employed as pan-man
in the Black Jack mill from June 11 till
September 5.
The bullion and ore steals were two
separate jobs, but Hagler was cognizant
of both transactions and has implicated
two or three parties in connection uith
the ore case.
More arrests are looked for.
Curling Club Meeting.
There will be a meeting of the curling club in the city council chamber on
Monday evening to elect officers and
make the necessary preparations for the
winter campaign. All who have a
weakness for the game or any who
would like to contract the curling
habit are requested to put in an appearance..
