Neither Water nor Light is Now Supplied to the City.,  Once more Sandon is without a water  ��������� or light supply, and the city is at the  mercy of the elements, carelessness and  all other causes of accidents.to life and  limb and dangerous fires.. The lesson  we got two years ago should have served  our council a wise purpose, but lessons  (jf'every description appear to be lost on  some people. The year before last, tho  city had a contract with the Water and  Light Co. for water for fire protection,  last year there was an understanding  between' the council and the W. it L.  Co. that was observed, if not wholly, at  least sutllcieiitly to give the people safety to some degree; but now there is  ���������nothing between the parties, and as a  result the water supply is cut oil', and  the public are at. the mercy of (ires 'and  accidents from whatever cause.  We believe the members of tlie council who are legal authorities in all these  matters, who affirmed the January  School Trustee election was legal, and  now assert all the members of theeouii-  eil are legally qualified to sit, have discovered from their reading of law and  ���������philosophy that-the.XV.& L.Cn.arccom-  ��������� pel.led .under their...charter., to furnish  the public with free hydrants; andafree  supply of, water for fire protection, and  that the public should then have both  without payment. If they know all  this as they profess to do, the property holders, residents and business  men want them to put their knowledge  into practical operation. They say, because of their knowledge.they will make  no contract with the company. One of  the lights, we are informed, would as a  . matter of charity to the company be  willing to-make a email annual grant,  as a paste for wounded feelings; but, of  course, the company refuse it-in that  spirit, they not being subjects of charity yet. They >ay they want to furnish  the water and hydrants free if the law  exacts it, and if not, being large property holders themselves, they want to  *ee the place protected, and pay for its  protection.  Our readers will remember that last  year these kickers and their mouthing organ raised a great hue and cry  when .Mayor Pitts refused to sign a contract with the Co. and many of that ilk  and others signed a petition to Pitts  asking him to resign when he refused to  sign it. Where are these petitioners  now? Why are they not out again with  a petition to Mayor Cuuning and the  council asking them to resign when  they fai I to seen re i easonable pu bl ic safety? If a petition was justifiable then it  is more so now, since the place is better  builtup.  - ....This.paper is not asking the council  particularly to make a contract with  the W. & L. Co. we are simply askine  them to secure public safety. If tha  law compels the W. & L. Co. to give the  place safety without a fee, why not pro  ceed to compel them to carry, out the  letter of the law? It on the other hand  they learn better and Jind payment  must be made for the service, by all  means make a contract and stick by it.  We are fully aware this inactivity  must bring down disapproval. Many  townspeople lost their all in a fire two  years ago. and all they have made since  is again at the mercy or the elements  without insurance and without the  slightest protection. Reaping up a fire  company and fire appliances without  water is a farce. Then let us end it.  Let the euimcil either force the company to provide a free supply or let them  pay for it. The people want protection,  and they will have it either one way or  the other. They want the council either  to act or resign and give place to those  who will act. We write this in nospirit  of hostility, but'merely for the protection of the public.  At The Wonderful.  This property is now among thc regular shippers of the camp, having sent  out five cars of good grade ore since the  1st of January, and having another one  about ready to go. ,  Mr. Warner has already drifted about  250 feet on the 60 feet ledge from which  he is now shipping. He lost the metal  at. one..poiiit but a 20 feetcrosscntstruck  it again and he followed it abouti20 feet  in 2 1.-2 feet of good ore, working;fdr:the  most.part against the hanging wall.  His present working is at about 125 feet  vertical depth, and all the inductions'  are that he will have a prosperous  season.  Mr. Davis, a late manager, was at the  mine the other day, and when he took  in the situation he said he had held stock,  in the property for a long time and from  what he had seen, he was going to hold  on to it longer. ' He is further confident  the ore now being stoped is fully in  place.  very much if for quality and quantity  combined, this showing has ever before  been equalled in the Slocan. At least  we have heard of none to equal it.  Town Jottings.  . John Docksteader was over from  Nelson on business this week.  Mrs. E. Oriddle, well known in the  Slocan, died at Nelson'last week.  Postoflice inspector Dorman was in  the city on Tuesday, looking into some  postal matters.  W. E. Bois, so it is reported, has  sold all his mining interests in B.C. and  left the country.  Mrs. Caldwell'and Miss Carrie, of  Nelson, are visiting in the city. They  are the guests of Mrs. Egan.  "Daddy" Black, now of Trout Lake,  but at one time a resident ot the Slocan,  registered at the Reco on Wednesday.  The Cosgrove concert and dance on  Monday night was not a huge success,  though theu.usic was above the average.  The council have decided to sue  Malcolm Gilbert Sproat for taxes due  before the fire. This is tlie right step,  and the only safe one.  The Rev. Mr. Robb, the newly appointed Presbyterian preacher, arrived  ori Saturday, and made a good impression  by his two sermons on Sunday.  R.F. Green's motion in the House,  urging the government to establish a  silver-lead refinery at a cost of ,$800,000  has passed, and may become a reality.  Mrs. Phypers, who has been seriously  ill the past week, is rapidly recovering.  Theo.Snnmons, engineer at the Payne,  and.Mi8. Simmons visited Kaslo this  week.  Baseball, goods in great supply at  Clifle's bookstore; also,the best lacrosse balls.  A case now pending in the small  debts .court appealed to the higher  courts, as it is likely to be, wi.l bring  out the right of municipalities to tax  the unfortunate women for revenue  purposes, as is done the province over.  We have not seen the last Gazette to  confirm it, but it is reported the Byron  N. White Co. are applying for the  privilege of using the water in the  canyon near Alamo, for an immense-  power plant to supply tbe towns and  villages of the Slocan with electric light  and power. It is a large undertaking,  and will require strong capital.  James Gil 1 Is, who tried to bite the  nose of!' Contractor Powers at McGuigan  some time aeo, and then cleared out,  has been arrested at. Rossland. Gillis  gets six mont's gaol for this assault.  The Silversmith.  There is hardly a Week passes by  without a gteater improvement being  made in the already magnificent showing of ore in the Silversmith in quantity  as well as quality. This week comes  again the welcome news of a further  increase in the width of thc ore body,  making a total width of four feet of  soiid ore. What frurther increases the  value of the property is the large  amount of grev-copper associated with  the ore.  The property so far has shipped five  cars of the high grade and this has only  been taken out during the course of development work.  The very last developments in the  property show it to be agenuine bonanza,  four and ono-half feet of steel galena,  running 500 ounces of silver and 70 per  cent lead, intermingled with large  showings of grey cooper, and concentrating ore of a high value on either  side of this body, to a considerable  thickness. Richer ore in small bodies  have been  found  here, but we doubt  The Star Mining Co.  is demanding of  theByron  N. White Co.,  through  the  courtp,   the  production of their plans : the latter,  and   workings.     The   defendant   says j  their, plans are too elaborate for such a !  purpose.  In Tunnel and Stope.  The capital of the Ruth mine has  been increased bv   125,000.  The report of the Ruth at the last  annual meeting showed that pioperty  lost $8,310 in last year's operations.  One of the last cars shipped by the  Ruth ran 180 ozs; silver and 14 per cent  lead.   This is the. next thing to dry ore.  Since the Monitor commenced, under  the present management in September,  7000, it has shipped ,1,000 tons of ore  ayerim: 140 ounces of silver, $,) in gold,  and 40 per cent lead. This has given  average smelter returns of over $90.  J. M. Harris has resumed work on his  long crosscut tunnel under the.school  house. There are several indications  that the lead will be found in this crosscut with strong assurances of mineral  in the lead when struck. Bodies of de-  caved  iron, have so far been   found in  Hotel Reco Arrivals for the Week.���������  G A Cassidy, C S Cassidy.

NURSING  MOTHERS  A mother's poor health is bad  enough for the mother but  worse   still   for    the   nursing-  baby.  p     Mothers find Scott's Emul-  s,i o n   a  nourishinsr and  CHANGE TAXATION  As we intimated in tne last two issues, I  we believe   the proper thing for the B.  C.   government   to   do   is   to   put an  ~     ~ ~~  ,t>  acreage tax on the crown granted prop-  Strengthening   food.

The  Pettypiece, of the Lardeau Eagle,  commented adversely on a mining  transaction near Ferguson, and the  merchants of that town, who thought  he was doing wrong, withdrew their  advertising from the paper, and Petty-  had to leaye the town. On that affair  the local Uluestreak writes as follows:  "Pettvpiece told Lhe truth in the wrong  .own, and suffered the martyrconi  which is the im-vitable penally for  hones' journalism in a crooked community." In the same, issue the Hiue-  streak chap intimates  he  is doing the  Wild! mothers   take  Scott's n.ustness of Sandon,  and. this  paper  is  tendency of humanity is to purchase ori Em   Isioil the babies   share   in  acquire property   for   speculation.     In j the benefits.    Thill babies gTOW  the older countries   these   speculators  fat.     Weak babies   o-Qt   Stl'Ono-  G o*  invest in town properties; in the newer  provinces   in    agricultural   and   farming lands,   and iu mining countries in  crown granted mining properties.    The  efforts   of  enterprising   neighbors     in  bringing these holdings into value,   by  improvements, make money for the less  enterprising,  and so the thing goes on.  . Surely no progressivegovernnientslands  by and unconcernedly allows  things  to  goon this way.   It is   not the   way   to  build up a country���������it is no way to make  a progressive  province out of   British  Columbia.   The man   who   spends   lii.c  own means or borrowed capital  in   employing labor, croating business for the  business men or earning   interests   for  investments,  instead of being taxed for  bis mineral output, as is the prevailing  rule at the present time, is   entitled   to  some reward for his enterprise.   Taxing  mining outputs and allowing the speculative   holders    of    unworked    crown  granted properties is paying a.preniiuin  to indolence which no   popular government can allow to be the rule.    We  repeat again,  that instead of collecting  $95,000 in a  two  per cent  tax on   the  output of the country, the course should  be to collect it in aii acreage tax on  all  unworked   crown   granted    properties,  with a modification to those who worked.   This  would give   employment   to  labor; to avoid the tax on idle properties many holders would work them, and  in   a   very   short   time    increase   outnumber   of   shippers   and    tonage   of  output.    In   turn   it  would  enable the  shippers to put on larger stall's,   and all  around   give   more  life   to commercial  business and all our  minor  industries.  Why does not Mr. Green  or some'of  our representatives   take  hold of this  matter on these lines?  Some of these holders will say,  "Vcs,  but what are we to do, we have no money  to work our properties and  are  unable  to   borrow?"     The government   lends  money to  build  railways,   to   improve  municipalities in irrigation  and drainage.    It should also, under the control  of its own engineers lend capital to   develop promising properties on first liens.  Some would turn outfailureswhileothers  are successful, and the country would be  ahead in the end,in any event.  As matters stand many   without   means   hold  several   crown   granted   properties   in  We'll send you a little lo try, if you like.

Those who let a cough run on,  in ignorance of the danger,  find no escape from the consequences when the cough develops into lung trouble.  The best time to kill a snake  is in the egg. The best time  to cure a cough is when it  starts. Ordinarilv, a few doses  of Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery will cure a  cough at the beginning, but  even when the cough is deep-  seated, tlie lungs bleed and the  body is wasted by emaciation,  Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical  Discovery will in ninety-eight  cases out of every hundred effect  a perfect and permanent cure.  "My husband had been coughing fbr venrs nnd  people frankly told me that lie would go into consumption," writes Mrs. John Shircniai'i, of No.  265 25th Place, Chicago, 111.

The council adjourned until called.  The Smelter.  We hear several people crying "Fake"  when speaking of Ryan's smelter proposition. This is neither fair nor right.  Ryan never said he was in a position to  make a definite proposal to any community,that he was merely lookingover  the ground and learning what communities were willing to do, and he would  then report.  We further notice the popple of Kamloops are giving McCropsan, whoisasso-  ciated with Ryan, $2.COO of a bonus,  and he is erecting a Vulcan smelter  there. Putting all the eircu instances"  together the conclusion that, strikes us  is that it was or is the intention of Mc-  Crossan, Ryan & Co. to float a stock company on the inducements that might be  got in the Slocan and.erect a svstnin of  smelters 011 the money got that way.  We do not, of course, put. this forward  as a fact, but merely a conclusion forced  upon us from what we can gather.  The Sandon people have, however,  gone the safe as well as the tight way to  work. When their committee find out  the meritsdf the Vulcan system, and  the cost of erecting a fair sized institution liere, if they find circumstances  warrant the erection of one, and the  means for it can be raised locally they  can act accordingly. In this as in all  other undertakings the right rourse is  to start right and then go ahead.  J^T^l:  -"T1-  Cook's Cotton Boot Compound  1 Is .successfully used monthly by over  'lO.QOOLadies.

A great piece of engineering work was  finished at the payne   mine   last  week  nnd was of a much more difficult   character, when the circumstances  are  all  considered, than one  would   naturally  suppose.   The work referred to was   to  make connections between Nos. 5 and 8  tunnels lor the purpose of securing economic: communication   and   lessen   the  handling of theore. As No. 5 tunnel has  its outlet on the south side of  the   hill  and No. 8 on the north, and  as  neither  of the tunnels pierces the mountain as is  the case in the upper levels, this connection was decided on to expidite matters  as the transport facilities are all on  the  south side of the   hill.     Heretofore   to  reach No. 8 one would have to   traverse  through No. 8 and  down  the northern  hill, a distance of about 800 feet by trail  to reach his goal and was not the   most  enviable thoroughfare at most seasons.  We might add that the construction ol  No. 8 was solely for the purpose  of   exploiting  the northern  side of  the  hill  at  depth.   To  reach  No.   8  from   the  fifth level 385 feet in depth would  have  to be attained.    Accordingly under   en-j  gineerinir instructions an upraise  was  made from No. 8 and driven upwards   a j  distance 315 to   connect   with   a  shaft i  sunk 7o from the fifth  level,   and   they I  both met as evenly as work could possi-1  bly be done.   This is the more   difficult  as sixandseven tnnnelsdidnotintersect  this undertaking as they were not driven  into the  hill   far   enoungh   and consequently themen had no intermediate sta-  tions to help them out iu their  calculations.    We believe nothing of  as great  a magnitude has ever been  undertaken  of a similar character in the   history of  the camp.'  Mi'Y'Drt.'.vry, of New Denver,  and other engineers were association in  this undertaking, but, of course, all was  carried through underJMr.'Garde'ssuper-  vision.   This work will open  up   larger  ore reserves than there were ever blocked  out in all the previous history ' of   the  mine.  The mill will be ready in a few weeks,  the electric lights and power drills will  be in operation in a short time and then  the mine will become a heavier shipper  than ever.

In  ,the fire tests, a red hoi iron ^-inch   in  diameter was run through   a  cartridge  of mazurite; a 1-inch  red-hot iron   rod  run into a can containing about  JO-lbs.  of this material; 10-lbs. were thrown on  a foriie fire, a bunch of parlor matches  were ignited in   a   heap   of  mazurite;  again the substance was  covered   with  smokeless and  black  powder   and   the  latter ignited, also with   the  positions  reversed, tlie powder being placed under  the mazurite.   The electric   tests   were  shown by allowing a series  of   electric  sparks to pass in contact with  mazurite  placed upon iron.   Also a copper   wire  was heated to redness and finally melted  liy the electric current while in   contact  with it.  Severe friction,were alsogiven ;  finally the detonation tests as to the explosive   strength   of  this   new   article  showed it to be perfectly   ilaineless,   as  shown by comparisons with   dynamite,  which was exploded to illustrate.     The  one advantage of no flame makes mazurite specially suited to coal  mine work.  Mazurite has a brown yellow color and  in   explosive is  said   to   equal   40   per  cent, dynamite weight   for weight..
