Madam Albini, the world-famous
jongstresss, will entertain a Nelson
[udience on Monday evening.
R. F. Green, the member for the
Kincan riding, is spending the Faster
holidays with his family in Kaslo.
Silverton   sporty are  endeavoring to
Organize a baseball  club   and   some of
(lie  Sandon boys  are  talking football.
There is no surer indication than this of
ipring.
H.  N.   Coursier,   traveHing  for  the'
I. C. Trade Budget, published in Vancouver,   was in  town yesterday.    Mr.
toursier   was  formerly   gold  commissioner at Revelstoke,
J. B. Fisher has just recovered from
kn attack of the grippe. He has disposed of his interest in the Brewery
lotel and will direct his attentions to
leveloping his Lemon creek mineral
*��roperties.
Andrew Rankin wena to the Lardeau
country on Tuesday to open ,a drug
store. McQueen & Rankin is the
mine ofthe firm. "Scolty" knows his
)iz and will make money there if there
fs any to be made in the land of large
ledges.
John GiHi-Si late ofthe Filbert cafe,
[is going to open a hotel at Dawson, in
[the Lardeau country. John built a
in that region sometime ago, but
wing to Mr. Van Home's timidty
[about building a railway to it did not
[open it up.
Sandon without street lights is a
id looking burg. When the rain
fins to pour and tbe mud thickens
the misery will increase and citizens
ill again present themselves with that
lwfle riddle, where were the street
lights when the citv funds ran out.
Jimmy Grant, of Cromwell fame,
and an old-time prospector of the Slocan and Lardeau, was married in
two weeks ago.
The force at lhe Sunset Whitewater
has been laid off and lhe mine closed
down. The property belongs to the
Gooderham-Blackstock syndicate.
Dan McLeod and his brother Neil
from Cripple Creek, Colorado, came in
Monday. Dan is a pioneer in the
Slocan. He worked on the Payne
when there were only two hammers on
the job. Neil McLeod is a tailor by-
trade and has taken a place with A.
David, the Miners' Tailor.
The little brown Jap has made his
appearance in town. Two of these
imperial reasons have purchased the
Reco laundry down on African Avenue,
and have settled down in Sandon.
Unless some timely action is taken by
the powers that be, this team will be
but lhe advance guard of a more extensive immigration.
The snowslide that faces the lower
end of the city of Sandon came down
as far as the K. &. S. track on Thursday. It covered the upper -track 20
feet deep for 251) feel and part of the
avalanche reached the lower track.
Fortunately none of it got'down the
streel. Some winter soon or late, the
snow fall will be sufficient to carry
this slide right into town and the result will be the destruction of considerable property and probablv the loss of
life.
The Ladies Aid Concert
A Deliberate Suicide.
Hospital Nctos.
Chas. Cooper from the Star with ap-
pendecitis arrived at the Hospital early
in the week.    He is recovering rapidly.
Dan McGillis and Wm. Dixon, influenza patients, will be out in a few
days.
Al Gale got his foot cut at the Star
mine and will be under hospital treatment for a week.
Johnny Black and Harry Payzant,
typhoid fever patients, are recovering
nicely. Harry Payzant, who was so
dangerously ill during the early part of
the week is improving.
John Allen was dischargad on Monday last. Kellet, Ash and Smith were
also discharged. ,
Quite a large audience   greeted  the
performers in the  Ladies   Aid  Concert
at the Union   Hall on Thursday evening.    The program   was quite lengthy
and furnished  entirely  by jocal talent.
The principal  features of  it were Alex
Oliver's    habitant    recitations,   Herb.
Sharpe's dialect stories and a  quartette
by Mrs.   Sanford,    Mrs.   J    K. Clark,
Wm. Cliffe  and  Rev. Ferguson.    The
other numbers   were   not   more   than
passable and  R. T. Anderson's attempt
at reciting his own poetry was a severe
disappointment.    .Mr. Anderson   is unquestionably the   laureate   of   the Sel-
kirks and writes  poetry that will some
day make him famous, but if he wants
to do justice to himself he will keep off
the platform.     He will never make an
elocutionist.
Rev. .Alexander of New Denver made
a pitiable botch of trying to get off
Artemus Ward's London lecture. The
program was as follows :���
1. Selection by the Band.
2. Recitation, Robert Anderson.
3. Song, Mrs. J. K. Clark.
4. Recitation, Herb Sharpe.
5   Recitation, Miss Clark.
6. Quartette,     Mrs.     Sanford,      Mrs.
Clarke, Wm. Cliffe,  J. A.   Ferguson.
7. Recitation, Alex Oliver.
INTERMISSION.
8. Selection by the band.
9. Recitation, Mrs. Jas. Thompson.
10. Duet, Misses. Pond.
11. Recitation, Alex Oliver.
12. Solo, Chas. Culver.
13. Recitation, Robert Anderson.
14. Solo, Mrs. J. K. Clark.
15. Recitation,  Rev. W. A. Alexander.
GOD  SAVE  THE   KING.
The Plume Contract.
The city council let the contract for
the construction of the 260 feet of flume
at the lower end of Main street to Piatt
Bros, at $910, on Tuesday last. Since
then Platts have thrown the contract
up and another contract will be let.
There were six tenders submitted, as
follows:
Piatt Bros $    910
Hood   1  275
Karr & Wilson    1   130
McMillan   1   150
Lawson   1   100
McLaughlin    1   188
John Barr committed suicide at the
Idaho mine on Monday morning in a
most deliberate manner. He had been
carousing in Sandon and had been
warned by the authorities to leave town
and not come back for three months.
On Sunday he left by the Queen Bess
trail and on arriving at that property
borrowed some powder, caps and fuse
���ostensibly to remove an obstruction
in the sleigh road. With this powder
he retired to a stable close by and attempted to blow himself into eternity
The powder was frozen and would not
explode so he went on to the Idaho
bunk house to iry another method. At
the Idaho he went to sleep along with
the rest of the gang but got up at three
o'clock in the morning and after carefully sharpening a butcher knife for the
purpose, cut his throat from ear to ear.
A coroner's inquest was held and
found a verdict of suicide. The funeral
took place lo the New Denver cemetery
on Wednesday.
John Barr came to the Slocan from
Glasgow, Scotland, about four years
ago. His home is al Johnstone, Renfrewshire, Scotland, where his people
are pretty well to do. In this camp he
was a peddler and store-keeper., He
drank copiously for some time back
and his business affairs were in a bad
state.
The Wonderful.
Five men are at work on the Wonderful and the preliminary work of
clearing out the tunnels and re-tim-ier-
ing is ahout completed. Next week
the force will be doubled. Since work
was commenced on the property, Wonderful stock has been in considerable
demand. It is understood that W. W.
Warner and a syndicate of Spokane
men are buying in the stock.
.  m>	
John McGuigan fell from the fourth
story of the Imperial hotel in Portland
last Sunday and was seriously injured.
His brother, Tom, left immediatly for
the scene. . John is an old timer in the
Slocan. He was one of the Noble Five
crowd who located the famous property
of that name and many others in the
Jackson and McGuigan Basin. Recently
he has been operating in the Sumpter
district in Oregon and has some properties on hand which should turn him
good money in the near future. His
friends here all hope that his injuries
may not prove fatal.
A Net�� Railtoaq Polict*.
John Houston is out with a brand
new policy in the railway line. He
has circulated pamphlets outlining the
scheme to the newspaper men and politicians of the province, and yestarday's
Tribune contains a long article on the
topic. Houston figures that there are
225,000,000 acres of land in the province and he advocates issuing 25,000,-
000 of land script at $1 an acre, thereby putting the province in possession of
a fund sufficient to build a thousand
miles of railway. With this mileage
he proposes to open the Vellowhead
and adjacent territories. The land script,
according to the scheme outlined,
would cover timber, mineral, agricultural and other rights and would give
the possessor sole and complete title to
whatever ground he located. It is also
proposed to discontinue all other methods of selling government land and
make this the only way in which wild
land could be acquired by purchase.
Locations would be taxable just as soon
as made and crown grants would have
to be taken out within a certain stipulated time.

Miss Macdonald, a graduate of St.
John Hospital, Lowell, Mass., arrived
on Thursday from Winnipeg to take a
place on the hospital staff, w
THE PAYSTREAK, SANDON, B. C., APRIL 13,
Death, the Great Leoeller.
(Charlie Churner in Toronto Star.)
While the world stood with bowed
head, while her vast machinery ceased
its motion, while kings waited and the
great men of tlie earth were anxious,
while millions were straining for those
last words from the Isle of Wight,
"The end has come," in Toronto, also,
not far from the city hall, a woman
was dying.
She was not of the earth's great.
No emperor, no prince, no princess
passed in farewell before her. No bells
were waiting to toll, a requium. No
cables were alert to spread the news of
her approaching end. There were two
mourners at her bedside���her daughter
and her husband. Outside, the wagons
rattled at the door. The children of
the neighborhood played noisily, and
their shouts and laughter disturbed the
watchers.
���'The room seems  darker," she said.
They raised the curtain.
"It is dark, so dark ; but I see tin-
light now." Then death stepped in,
and the curtains were drawn again,
and the living were left with the dead.
. The same dread visitant who called
at lhe great castle across the sea ?
Yes, the same !
Did not the great dead carry some of
her glory with her ?
She left her glory !
And this unknown soul winging out,
did it pass the same celestial gate thru
which that other soul had passed but
an hour before ?
Yes, the same gate !
To the same God ?
Yes!
Death, thou art tjie, great leveller.
When the devi) starts to straighten
out his accounts he won't overlook the
cannibalistic and diabolical rulers who
are now trafficking in the blood and
bones of the poor Chinese. In one district alone in China two million men
women and children are sitting along
roadways starving to death, and yet
the human vampires who sit in the
capitals of Europe and America are
conspiring to not only grab the entire
income of the unhappy Chinese nation,
but to double taxation and- confisticate
all for twenty years! No such murderous acts were e.yer perpetrated by
savages of any age,and such horrors
were left to those who call themselves
"Christians!" In the sight of such infamies of capitalism words fail.to express our condemnation., Such damnable acts increase our detestation of
capitalism a thousand fold, and add
monumental strength to , the cause oi
international socialism and justice for
the peoples of all nations.���Cleveland

The Mollie Gibson.
Col. S. VV. Ray of Port Arthur is in
Nelson to re-open the Mollie Gibson
property. He states that the company's
obligations will be discharged at once
and that the directorate will lose no
time in placing the Mollie Gibson on a
dividend-paying basis.
The company proposes to preceed as
early as possible with tbe construction
of a concentrator at the mine with a
capacity of 75 tons daily. Exhaustive
tests ofthe ore for concentrating purposes are under way and when the results are ascertained tbe mill will be
ordered.
The companv also has under consid
eration lhe construction of an electric
tram line to connect the mine with the
waterfront. These points are 12 miles
apart and lhe cost of teaming the ore
is $4.50 per ton. The electric tram
would transport the ore at a cost of S_>
per ton and the living would net lhe
company $50 a day at least.
Power for the road is available from
Kokanee creek, which at one point has
a full of 300 feet within a short distance.
An excellent wagon road has already
been built, so that the grade for the
tram line is ready made.
It is felt among local mining men
that the erection of the proposed ccn-
cenirator at the Mollie Gibson mine is
a happy move. The mine undoubtedly
has a very large tonnage of ore in
sight, but the quality is, as a rule, just
a shade below the standard required to
ship profitably in the form of clean ore.
With the mill concentrating three to
one. as is estimated, the output will be
exceptionally high [jrade. The electric
tram has also created much interest,
and it is estimaied that if the company
goes ahead with this idea it will obtain
enuf custom work from neighboring
properties to pay for the operation of
the suggested line.���Spokesman-Re

when Noble Five stock went skyward
and sold as high as 60 cents.
This magnanimous policy on Duns-
muir's part has had the effect of giving
the stock a boost and it is advancing
rapidly. Added to this, il is understood that Dunsmuir is buying in any
loose bunches sif stock   that appear on
the market, and Noble Five is around
the 10-cent mark now, with prices still
advancing. A month ago the stock
was a drug on the market and transfers were made at half a  cent a share.
The Slocan Star.
The Star mill is working full time.
Steam power is still used as there is not
yet sufficient water lo run the mill.
Shipments have not yet commenced.
The payroll is the same as last week,
about 120 men being employed.
The Byron N. White Co. paid out
$8000 on the 10th. The Star payroll
next month will be much larger than
this, as many of the men who are in
the company's employ did not start
work until the 1st, and consequently do
not come in on this pay day. The
Star is the best mine in the di>trict for
the local trade. Its pay day always
has a gladdening influence on the business of lhe camp.

The Noble Fice.
The ore recently struck in tlie drift
from the No. 3 tunnel of the Last
Chance is holding on in the Noble Five
ground and the showing in the face is
better now than ever. The ground is
very soft and requires careful timbering,
consequently progress is slow. At
present only one shift can be worked

body so far exposed indicates that a
new reserve has been opened that will
put the Noble Five on the dividend

To make a test of coal, take a frag-
menl and chip it till i-s weight is reduced to a pound. Place "his iii a
glazed assayers cruicibie and weigh ihe
two together. Hie addition in weight
will, of course, be the welghl ofthe
crucible. Place the latter, with its
contents, in a vessel of boiling water
shallow enough so that the water does
noi have any access to the coal, and
maintain the water al a hoiling temperature lor four to six hours. Set
aside the crucible and contents ta dry,
and then weigh. The loss in weight
will represent the natural moisture in
ihe coal. Then place the crucible
with its coal in the muffle of an assay

die crucible back in lhe lav and heat
strongly, but gently at first, and with
lhe top open, till the coal is burned up.
Then cool and weigh again. The loss
ia weight from the preceedingoperation
will re "resent the fixed ear'hon ofthe

the ash. A good bituminous coal

The Paramount Issue.
(Revelstoke Herald.)
llie railway question is today the
sine which absorbs the interest from all
other matters on llie American continent. In the Slates a colossal combination has practically nullified com'peii-
lion at one stroke. The Dominion
government is confronted with the alternative sif adopting the principle sif
government ownership or of seeing the
national railway system swallowed up
hy the same combination. The Ontario government has frankh adopted a
policy of constructing and operating its
own lines in future. Manitoba is divided in lo two parties over ihe Roblin
deal, in this province the government
finds its very existence at stake over
'he proposed road from Kootenay to the
���oast. By their railway policy all over
Canada the governments are Uncling
that they must sland or fall. And most
of them will fall. The man on the
street is in psoscssion of a lest by which
they are all gauged. He has made up
his mind that not only is the state
ownership of transportation facilities
the best policy in Other respects, best
tor the people and best for the progress
ot the country, but also the cheapest
and nothing s'hort of it will ultimately
satisfy him. And government will
succeed government until he gets what
he wants.

SANDON, APRIL  13,  rgoi.
Princes of royal blood, the London dispatches say, are to be named
after Canada and Australia. What
an inspiration! Two sons of King
Edward's eldest are to be dubbed the
Prince of Canada and the Prince of
Australia. The dispatch insinuates
that Canadians and Australians will
be flattered at such attentions from the
artificially illustrious. Wont they
now? Wont the uncouth peasantry
of this Canada of ours feel all swelled
uf> to know that an insignificant juvenile atom of human foppishness, whose
distinction rests on the circumstance
that he is not of the democracy, is to
pack around the nickname Prince of
Canada? Just think! A prince of the
royal blood; pedigree perfect, purpose
weak, conscience wayward, morals
made to order, religion complascent,
city broke, swift and foolish.
The possibilities are too glowing
to be clicked into cold type. Here is
an actual son of a real live heir-apparent to   be   named   after  our country.
0
What rapture. What perfect bliss.
Why, we might adopt flunkeyism as a
hobby and develop the high art of
grovelling to a title as gracefully as it
is performed in England���or even rival
Italy. We might bring youthful Canadians up to revere any useless son-
of-a-gun who never did an honest day's
work in his life. We might found an
aristocracy of picturesque idlers, each
one duly qualified to starve if his noble
existence depended on his ability to hit
a drill or otherwise produce. We
might even induce the imperial government to permit us to cough up
some of that ,��470,000 that old Edward wants for his civil list. Or we
might spread ourselves by starting our
dear Prince of Canada off on a gflobe-
trotting expedition in a nice private
steamer (publicly paid for) just like his
father, the Duke of Cornwall.
Oh yes ! Cert ! We want a whole
outfit of princes of royal blood. Let
them come, Edward, in big bunches
like bananas. After we get used to
the idea of having a few of them around
loose among us we will complacently
put them on salary and place them on
exhibition at Chaudier Castle or Victoria Mansion.
As a  national   assett, princes   of
the royal blood have no commercial
rating', but they make such delightful
fashion plates and they can gamble
and drink and revel in all the luxurious vices in such a polished manner
and keep such piquant mistresses on
the string and set such a scorching
pace of lasciviousness that one can
scarcely comprehend how Canada has
managed to worn* along all these
weary years without them. Then
again, social distinctions are not what
-a I
they might be in Canada anyway.
We should have a nice line of princes
to accentuate the inequalities. Send
us along a whole string of them, Edward, vou   won't   miss   them.    They
-a
are of no use on God's green earth,
so you can afford to hand over a bunch
of them to us. Royal blood is what
we want. But please hurry up. We
may be growing democratic.
The Rossland miners' union has
a terrible heap ot trouble on its hands.
In makincr the famous   settlement of a
year ago, in which the diplomatic Mr.
Clute and oilier  professional friends oi
labor participated, the   unions insisted
on recognition but  overlooked setting
a scale of wages.    Now the boomerang
of   their   intelligence   has   lit, and   il
drops hard.    The mine owners are not
troubling   much   about   the   abstract
question of recognition, but the matter
of wages is a large proposition in their
eyes.    Barney   Macdonald  of the  Le
Roi and   Edmorid   V.  Kirby   of   the
Gooderham-Blackstock properties have
adopted a system of hostilities toward
the Federation   which, if  played to a
finish, will smash the Rossland union.
The}* are  importing  cheap   foreigners
from the Minnesota iron ranges to dis-
place union miners.    There  gents are
brot in on the installment plan.     Kirby
and   Macdonald   have   it figured   out
that if thev can   run in   Dadoes at the
rate of about two a  day they will soon
have the union locoed and   will have a
class of muckers o;i shift that will stand
a four-bit cut without  a whimper.    Of
course the   importation  and  employment of Dagoes is   not   recognition of
the union, but  that is   not  bothering
Barney Macdonald   much.    If he and
Kirby can get enuf of them in,   wages
can be cut to a whisper  and Rossland
mapped as a colony of Italy.    Already
about 35 per cent of the Rossland payroll is Dogo and   the mine owners are
pretty nearly ready to  give   the union
notice to get off the earth.
Recently the Le Roi and War
Eagle management posted notices to
walking delegates to keep off the properties. In this particular the companies are certainly right. No mine
manager wants a possee of walking
delegates gallavanting thru his stopes
during  working  hours.    If the labor
organizers can't round up the Dagoes
during the 16 hours they are off shift
they have a gorgeous nerve to try to
do it on the mine owners time. Bui
the question of right or wrong has
nothing to do with the notices. Thev
were posted merely tp preface the intentions of Messrs. Kirby and Mac-
donald. The next move is awaited in
suspense.
There is another phase of the
question, however, which does not outcrop prominently in the altercation at
Rossland. If these bright mine man-
agers put cheap foreigners into their
workings they will ruin   the   Rossland
O m
mines. Slocan mine owners tried it
and are sorry for themselves over their
experience. In one mine in particular
the employment of Minnesota talent
has cost much more than the total payroll ofthe mine before and since. The
Dagoes shot galena into the waste
in a manner that would make a competent miner cry ; and now the management is paying the penalty o( ih
folly bv seeing its stock go fluey.
History will repeat itself in Rossland. If Barney Macdonald and Ed-
mond V. Kirby want to put the Le Roi
and War Eagle on the hike they haw
only to continue importing the cheap
element that is now floating into Rossland. The Gooderham-Blackstock
floatations are sad looking affairs en
the stock market right now, but if Mr.
Kirby is allowed  to destroy the mines
ml m
with cheap labor the Toronto folks will
have a line of stock certificates that
will make handsome mural decorations
or,might be used to put under carpets
in eastern homes. .
Thk promoters of the Y. V, & E.
are making desperate efforts to get the
B. C. government to stake them to a
million dollars to build the Coast to
Kootenav railroad, which the C. P. R-
offers to build without a bonus. They
claim that if the government will loosen
up Jim Hill will start laving steel ill-
stantur and the C. P. R. will have to
follow suit. That is to sav, by presenting these charter sharks with a
million plunks the people will be
awarded the privilege of maintaining
two ra 1 roads where one would do the
work. Presuming that Jim Mill and
Tom Shaughnessy are sane, t lios^
roads would be built with a view to
profit. If two corporation-owned roads
can make money between the Coast
and Kootenay, one govern men t road
ought to pay expenses. Why not use
the million to build a government
road ?
Can this E. V. Bodwell who is now
booming the V. V. & E. be the same
man who rose a year ago to state that
Joe Martin's Coast to Kootenay road
was a wild-eyed dream ? THE PAYSTREAK, SANDON, B. C, APRIL 13,

Coeur d'Alene District.
There are at present ten concentrating plants in operation in this district
and handling from 4,000 to 5,000 tons
of crude mineral daily. Their combined output amounts to about 600
tons of concentrates, consisting of
nearly pure argentiferous galena.'
Recent expert examinations in the
region indicate that the daily average
hisses in slimes are amounting to the

.*. THE PAYSTRKAK, SANDON, B. C, APRIL 13,
The Cry of the Dreamer.     ,
I am tired of planing and toiling
In the crowded hives of men;
Heart-weary  of building  and spoiling,
And spoiling and building again.
And I long for the dear old river,
Where I dreamed my youth away;
For a dreamer lives forever
And a toiler dies in a day
I am sick of the showy seeming
Of a life that is half a lie;
Ofthe face lined with scheming
In the throng that hurries by.
From the sleepless thot's endeavor ���
I would go whe're the children play,
For a dreamer lives forever,
And a thinker dies in a day.
I can feel no pride, but pity
For the burdens the rich endure;
There is nothing sweet in the citv
But the patient lives ofthe poor.
Oh, the little hands, too skillful,
And   the   child-mind    choked    with
weeds.
The daughter's heart gown willful
And the father's heart that bleeds!
No, no! from (he street's rude bustle,
' From trophies of mart and stage,
I would fly to the woods' low nesMe
And the meadow's kindly page.
Let me dream as of old by the river,
And he loved for the dream alway,
For a dreamer lives forever.
And a toiler dies in a day.
John Boyle O'Reilly.

Wi H. Jeffrey, formerly manager of
the Sunset mine, Whitewater and
expert for the Gooderham-Blackstock
syndicate, was in Sandon on Saturday
last previous to leaving for the east.
Mr. Jeffrey has taken an option on the
entire stock of the Kaslo smeller and
will go lo Montreal to raise capital to
finance the project. The Kaslo people
are to be congratulated on the fact that
they have a man who knows his business behind their smelter scheme.
The St. Eugene and allied properties
at Movie have been indelinately closed
down, throwing 300 men out of employment. No other explanation is given
except the allegation that the company
did not care to dispose of the product
at the low price ruling for silver-lead
ore. It is generally considered that the
move is with a view to forcing the
government to bonus a lead refinery.
Moyie depends entirelv on these mines,
and with the properties shut down the
town is dead.
The force at the Hewitt, Four Mile,
lias been cut down. The tunnels and
ore sheds are blocked with ore and the
roads are in such shape that no shipping can be done. The constructian of
a tramway will be proceeded with
without delay.
