 C:_-'  ri  if  VOL..6.���������NO. 44.  SANDON, B. C, SATURDAY, APRIL 18,   1903.  2.00 PER YEAR  Local News Notes.  Win. Hunter, of Silverton, was in  town on Thursday.  The talk of the town is the cheap  fancy shirt-display at Atherton's.  Take notice that the dato of the rival  concert in Union hall is Tuesday April  28 th.  The Republic mine at Slocan has another car of ore at the wharf awaiting  shipment.  Easter past off very quietly; Sandon  had the appearance of the. deserted village in earnest.  D. Moore, ore buyer for the Trail  smelter, wa8 touring: the Slocan this  week looking up contracts.  The building material for the Payne  zinc plant has arrived by C. P. R. and  is being transferred to the K. & S. for  deliverv.  Mrs. F. S. Attwbod, who was visiting  her aunt, Mrs, Fallows, and stayed over  to attend the ball ou Monday evening,  returned to Kaslo the following day.  y The Payne is shipping its zinc to the  Trail smelter. Fifty tons have already  buen sent out, three cars will be shipped  in a few days and more will follow dur-  .  ing the coming week.  A couple of our young ladies cams to  grief on Thursday while going to Three  Forks on a hand-car. When about half  _ the distance and going a lively gait, the  car shot off the track and the ladies off  the car. There was a general mix-up of  skirts, shovels, picks and barrels, but  beyond a severe jar no one was seriously hurt.  Geo. Robbins and F. H. Hawkins, as-  sayers, spent Sunday in New Denver.  The curlers held a meeting on Tuesday evening and wound up the business  of the season.  Get one of those cheap fancy shirts at  Atherton's before they are all gone.  Only 50 cents.  ��������� The rival concert which was announced to be held on April the 23rd has  been postponed to Tuesday, April 28th.  While the surrounding townsarebusy  cleaning up their back yards, the snow  is so deep in Sandon, that'you can't see  the fences around them.  H. Murhard'is painting, repapering  and fixing up the interior of the Sandon  Chop House, preparatory to starting up  again before long. c  Aid. Thos. Brown, men's furnisher, is  packing up his goods and shipping them  to Phoenix, where he will start up  again in business shortly.  Thos. McGuigan, manager of tht  American Boy, arrived in town Tuesday  from Spokane and is making preparations to reopen the mine which will be  in afew days now that the likelihood of  danger from snowslides is passed. A  small force only will put on for short  whije owing to the' spring freshets at  this time of the year, and when the  mine is sufficiently dry to receive an increase in the force it will done.  Rev. Father Cote, who has been in  charge of the Slocan mipsion, with  headquarters in Sandon, the past three  years, leaves in a short time for Fire  Valley, near Sudbury, to assume charge  of that parish. The citizens of Sandon  of every denomination, but particularly  his own flock, regret to hear of his intended departure. Since coming to the  Slocan Father Cote by his jovial manner and liberal-minded views, haa endeared himself with his parishioners,  and merited the esteem of all creeds. It  was mainly through his efforts that the  church of S(: Joseph was built in this  city, which he leaves practically free  from debt and well furnished in the interior". It was also largely due to him  that the Catholic churches of Kaslo and  Silverton were built. Father Cote is at  present at the coast to visit His Lord-  8������ip Bishop Dqntenwill, of New Westminster, on pastoral matters, but will  return and officiate in Sandon once more  before his departure.  The rink company's ball" on Monday  evening last, after paying all expenses,  netted the sum of $73, which considering the times is very good.  The Rambler-Cariboo has closed down  for a short time on account of slides.  It ia expected to start up again in a few  weeks when all danger is over.  H. M. Stevenson, of the Highlander  mine, Ainsworth, who has been in town  looking after zinc, left for home the first  of the week and will return in a few  days. Mr. Stevenson is purchasing zinc  ores for a New York firm to ship to the  European market and offers better rates  than some companies whose representatives have visited the camp. He haB  not closed any contracta yet, but has a  few deals under way, and on his return  expects to bring them to a satisfactory  conclusion.  The True Blue property near Kaelo  is to be sold under option to a syndicate  of New York capitalists for $75,000.  The' property made few shipments  of high grade copper-gold ore last summer which gave very, high returns.  The principals have taken the option  pending a thorough examination of the  surface ground to prove the continuity  of the vein, which can not take place  before the snow leaves the ground which  will be about the. latter part of next  month. If the new purchasers decide  to take up the option the property will  be worked on a large scale.  R. T. Lowery is in Vancouver this  week in connection with starting up his  new paper, the Ozonogram or Boozea-  dram. R. T. should keep away from the  water while in the city, as the sight and  smell of the salt sea may bring up unpleasant recollections of bygone days.  Some years ago, while in Vancouver,  Lowery started out to'see the sights.  He had a hazy idea where he was going  and tottered down with uncertain siep  towards the dock. Hearing about St.  Peter walking on the water, he attempted the same, likewise sank and had to be  fished out. In his immersion he got a  a Pacific oyster mixed up with a coast  cocktail, and his etope and stomach,  never in good order, have been upset  ever since.  '. Zinc is demanding more attention in  the camp just now than silver or  lead.  See Atherton's window display of 50  cent shirts. The greatest bargain ever  offered in the Slocan.  The Oddfellows are making arrangements for their annual ball. This function is alwayB regarded as one of the  leading society events and-will be held  on the 8th of next month.  The shipments of coke now being well  in hand the C. P. R. has withdrawn the  tug "Sandon" from the Slocan lake service. Capt. Roy Troupe has been sent  up the Lardeau to assume command of  a boat on Trout lake.  More carpenters were added to the  force at the Payne mill this week. The  foundation for the zinc plant is finished  and work on structural portion under  way. The building will be pushed  forward rapidly and be ready for operation in a few weeks.  The Rink company's Easter ball en  Monday evening was a grand success.  The hall was filled with a gay assembly of  merry dancers who enjoyed themselves  until the early hours of the morning.  The neighboring towns by the lake were  well represented and greatly pleased  with their trip.  District Union N . 6, Western Federation of Miners, has elected the follow  NO CHANGE IN TARIFF.  But the Dominion Government  Will Give a Bounty to  the I^ead Industry.  Word was received in town on Thursday that the estimates were brought  down in the Dominion Parliament and  there will be no changes^in the tariff.'  The government announce it will grant  a bonus, we have not heard the amount  or conditions, but the tariff will have to  stand.' Just how this will effect the  Slocan we cannot say just now. The,  decision of the goyernnient has been  anxiously awaited and now that it is  known the suspense in the Slocan is  greater the ever. It is known the mine  owners practically as a whole are opposed to a bounty, as it means little relief to them. It was understood by  many that a bounty wan already granted on lead. A few years ago a delegation from the Kootenays went to Ottawa  for that purpose and succeeded in obtaining we believe a bonus of $6 a. ton  for refined lead to the amount of $600,-  ing officers for the ensuing year: Presi- j 00������ a >'ear- /or * Period of three  years,  dent, P. W. McDonald, Rossland; vice  president, H. Thompson, Sandon ; secretary-treasurer, George F. Dougherty,  Greenwood. Nelson was again chosen  as the city to hold the convention in  next year.  The Granby Smelter company has installed the most complete and up-to-  date machine shops at its mines in  Phoenix. In future its mining equipment and others will be repaired when  necessary at its own works and not be  sent out of the district. The innovation  means more men employed for Phoenix.  A number of our citizens interested  in the Similkameen Valley Coal Co.,  were in Nelson this wetk attending the  annual meeting which was held on  Wednesday. Among them were Mayor  Grimmett, W. W. Fallows, Robt. Mc-  Taggart, J. B. Cliffe and J. W. Gauk-  roger. The latter after the meeting left  on trip to the coast and California cities.  Some unable to attend were represented  by proxy.  The prizes were distributed this week  to the winning rinks of the curling club  in the schedule of games played not long  ago. The first prize) four handsome  briar pipes and tobacco pouches, were  carried off by Mr. A. Scott's quartette,  composed of E. M. Sandilands, lead; A.  H. Lewis, 2nd; Geo. Ransom, 3rd, and  A. Scott, skip. The second prize, four  boxes of "Walkessi" socks, were won  by N. J. Cavanaugh's rink, with Geo.  Waite, lead; P. H. Murphy, 2nd; E. R.  Atherton, 3rd, and N. J. Cavanaugh,  skip. This practically winds up one of  the most successful seasons of the Sandon Curling Club, whose membership  the past year was the largest since it  was founded several years ago.  but whether it was ever put  into ^force  has not been determined.   The bounty  would afford no relief  to  the sufl'ering  mine owners, as the smelter companies  are the only ones who profit by it.   The  action of the government is a bitlerdis-  appointment.   The modest  requisition  of themineownershasbeen sweptaside,  the resolutions of sympathy of the Liberal associations, Boards of Trade, labor  organizations and the populace  in general have been of no avail, and the distress of the silver-lead industry has not  been  considered   sufficient  to warrant  government intervention.   The outlook  is anything but promising for   the   Silvery Slocan. '  Sandon Ore Shipments.  The following are the ore shipments  from Sandon for the week:  Mine. Tons.  SILVER-LEAD.

The Mlfliflff Sevlew.  SATURDAY, APRIL 18, 1903.  Hon. W. 8. Fielding gave thc Com  nions another beautiful example of inconsistency in explaining the government's position in respect to the opening at Ottawa of a branch of the royal  mint. When it was proposed to establish a Canadian mint, independent of  the British institution, Mr. Fielding  pointed out that the coining of money  in this country would result in large deficits. According to his statement, such  a mint would be idle eleven months out  of the year unless gold' was coined, and  this could only be done at groat loss.  Mr. Fielding now bases his argument in  favor of a branch of the royal mint, on  the claim thatgold_ sovereigns may bo  freely coined. It will surely be gratifying to Canadians to learn that by striking BriLishcoins they can lose money. At  the present time wc reap large profits  by having our coin currency produced  in England. When the government inaugurates its new policy, according lo  the Finance Minister's own statement,  a deficit will follow.  SOUND AS  A. DOLLAR  That is the result of a course  of treatment with Scott's Emulsion. We ������������������ have special reference to persons with weak  lung's and sensitive throats.  Scott's Emulsion docs some  thin sis better than others. This  is one of them. It has a peculiar action on the throat and  man from JYIanitonlin has made good  his accusations, has-produced all tho  condemning documents, nnd refused lo  be moved one iota while undca lhe se-  vere cross-examination of one of the  ablest lawyers in the Dominion. Some  one has got to, be made a scapgoat lo  whitewash to Ross government, and as  Hon. James Stratton ia tho deepest in  mire, we believe it will be him. Ever  since the Ross govern mon I came into  power it has 'been   associated with the  The Prior government was saved from  defeat on Wednesday last by the casting  of the Speaker on Hie first division of  the session, A vote was taken on' the  resolution of Smith Curtis, dcsirii g ihe  dissolution of tho Mouse and an appeal  to the province on party lines. Tho  debate on tho issue was short and sarcastic, and the vote slood 17 to 17, the  Speaker giving the deciding vote in  favor of the government. This does not  by any means indicate that the Prior  ministry will not live through the ��������� ses-  scssion. Tho united opinion of the province is that the next election should  be carried out on party lines, lo endeavor to form a staple government eo badly needed in British Columbia, and any  resolution brought before the House to  attain this end would be almost sure'to  carry. Some of the members who voted  for the resolution find against the government,, will support Premier Prior in  the main that the session may bo carried through. The appeal to 'thercoun-  try on party lines will follow, that is a  foregone conclusion.  lungS       which      gives        them ��������� most    loathsome   political   corruption  Strength and makes themtOllHl.   known   in   history,    Us   record  in the  courts has brought the blush of shame  to the brow of that fair province,, which  has been held up for ridicule all over  the continent, but it remained for the  exposure of the Gnmey episode to f-how  the dastardly means adopted by iis officials in their lust for power.  That's how Scott's Emulsion  drives out coughs, colds and  bronchitis. It keeps them out,  too.  We'll send yon ;i little lo try, if you like.

We hope for the sake of the  suffering country that the difficulty will  soon be adjusted, and from what we can  learn a settlement is expected   shortly.  / The Trail sine!lor has now- onteiod  the zinc market, and is actively competing for the output of the Slocan.

In discussing the question of mine  failures, the Engineering and Mining  Journal lias the following to say on the  subject.  ���������'The principal source of trouble  arises," il states, "from over valuation.  A mine may bo said to lie worth a given  sum when it can return that sum as  profit from operation!, covering a term of  years pins the interest on hisin vestment  during the period consumed in return  of the stated price.- When this is translated into a share capital the conditions  are the same, although the amount of  interest.which should be ' returned in  the form of dividends will vary iu percentage according to the hazard of the  different kinds of milling.  "Apart from specific causes, there are  several influences which niililatoiiga'inst  true value... There is that expectation  of better thing?, that resolute hopefulness which is,necessary to all exploration work. We cannot do without- it,  but it should be so restrained as to regard the rules of arithmetic. It is natural to the owner, to the manager, to  tlie intending purchaser, to all persons  to whom tbe success of the mine ioinis-  tora, directly or indirectly; therefore,  all the more reason, for taking care that  the valuation of the mine be intrusted  to those whose judgement is in no wise  vitiated either by  sanguine   sentiment  or that disturbing influence which' is  covered by the term participation., To  summarize, mines are often over-valued  because the valuation ia usually done  by people who are interested in getting  a maximum apprisemont.  "There is another far-reaching factor:  mines are frequently bought to sell. It  is a cynical truth that more money is  made by selling mines than by buying  them���������because they aro often sold for  more than they are worth. Therefore  it happens that although a property  may be recognized as worth a stated  eum,neverthelcDS shrewd persona will be  willing to pay a larger amount because  they have a reasonable expectation of  selling it subsequently for still more. If  this is brought about by further intelligent development, by solving knotty  problems of ore tremtment, by a new  equipment which minimizes working  costs, that is, by engineering talent' of  the beat kind, then assuredly the enhancement in price is both warranted  and deserved'; but when it merely presumes upon the ignorance of individuals  or of shareholders, it partakes of the  practices which slide imperceptibly into  acts that are.dishonest.  "The leaultof these tendencies is that  it is bard to purchase mines   at   a   fail-  valuation���������that is, we repeat,   a   valuation such as is likely to give a   return  of the purchase price plus a   reasonable  interest on the capital   invested.     The  supply of good mines is far   below   tho  demand; in addition to those   who   arc  shrewd enough to recognizo   that  yjoid  mining, if properly safe-guarded, is' the  safest industry extant there are a .large  number who see the advantage of trading upon the sanguine   temperment   of  human kind, and there is another class  of people who   rush   in   where   experienced men feat to commit themselves.  Thus, if a mine is worth a certain sum,  as nearly as tho fact can be determined j  by skilful and trained specialists,  thon  the first group described will pay   that  much for it, while the second   will   pay  more according to the popularity of the  locality and the   attractiveness   of   the  scheme, and the third group   of   innocents, will be deluded into parting with :  a prico which, hunianlyspeaking, promise? a loss with a dreary certainty.  "The..e arc someof the reasons  why  mining   ventures   prove   unprofitable;!  they are mjcIi   as   time   alone   can   remove���������time and the  education   of   the!  public to a realization of the  fact that  while no  industry ailbrds   euch   rapid  and remunerative returns as legitimate '  mining,' none   affords   so   readily   the j  facilisdeceiiGus   Averni Which   awaits  the greedy or the foolish in the financial  arena." ���������  I have no win stock a choice assortment of  How to Ward Off an Attack  of Rheumatism.  "For years when spring lime came on  and 1 went into gardening, I was sure to  have an attack of rheumatism and every  attack was more Revere than the pra-  ceeding one," s.ay������ Josie McDonald, of  Man, Logan county, West Vu. "I tried  everything with,no relief whatever, until 1 procured a bottle of Chamberlain's  Pain Balm, and the first application  gave me ease, and before the first bottle  was used I felt like a new person. Now  I feel thai. I am cured,but I alwayskeep  a bottle of Cliamblerlaiii's Pain Balm in  the house and' when I feel any symptons  of a return I soon drive it, away wilhi  one or two applications of this,liniment.'

Trail Smelter Slimes.  On'Thursday the   foundations .were  started for the construction of  a   slime  treatment   plant,   which. promises   to  mean much for Trail  and  tlie  country  generally, states the Trail News.'  Silver  slimes, somewhat similar to those   produced in copper refining, are turned out  in connection with the  electrolytic   re-  iiningof load, and these were formerly  shipped to thc United States for  treatment.     They   contain    the    precious  metals, gold and silver, combined 'with  arsenic, antimony and other impurities  occuring in the lead bullion.   When in  opemtion, this plant will turn out pure  silver, which goes direct to   China  and  Japan; pure gold, which.will be marketed in Seattle and San Francisco fas  the  Canadian governmentdoesnotpurchase  on the same basis as   does   the   UY  S,  Government); copper sulphate   which  will bo marketed in the Territories for  washing    seeds,   and   either   metallic  antimony or   antimonial   lead,   which  will supply the   Canadian   demand   in  making; babbits and other alloys.  The establishment of thisplantplaces  the Canadian miners and, smelters entirely independent of United States institutions, and every dollar.will be expended in Canada, so far as the exlrac-,  tion of lead and the precious metals  from the ores mined in theconntry may  be concerned. J t is estimated that the  amount of values handled in this plant  will eventually he ten or fifteen thousand dollars daily, depending upon the  amount of ores shipped, which, at the  present time, is very small ou account  of the unsatisfactory condition of the  London market.  The Montreal-Boston Copper Co. will  install a converter in- their smelter at  Greenwood;  The old Donald property nearlllecilli-  waet, is being acquired by English  capital. The property runs high in  zinc.  The affairs of Lanark Consolidated'  Mines near Laurie' are being .wound  up',, and their properties are to be disposed of. The Payne here purchased  their milling plant from this company  last summer.  A change has been made in the management of the Metropolitan Company,  operating in the Lardoau country. The  Rev. McCrossan who, while managing  the company, came in for' considerable  notenety has been retired.  McDonald and Sutherland, who have  the Elkhorn property near Greenwood  under bond have just made their initial  shipment by sending out one carof high  grade ore. The ore baa the same appearance as Unit taken from the Providence, which  property it adjoins.  A   Mother's  Recommendation.

Gaukrogers, late foreman at the  Star, was well remembered by the employees at the mine last Saturday. As  soon as the men heard of his intended  departure they decided to testify their  appreciation of his supervision in some  manner. On Saturday evening they  presented him with a handsome gold  watch chain and exquisite toilet set, accompanied by an address. The presentation was made and address read by  Percy Johnson, who on behalf of the  miners paid a glowing tribute to Mr.  Gaukroger for hie strict regard to duty  and the personal safety of the men.  They sincerely regretted his departure  and hoped ho would accept the accompanying gifts as a token of the respect  and esteem in which he was held by the  employees of the Star'. Mr. Gaukroger  was completely taken by surprise and it  wan some time before he recovered himself. On regaining his composure he  said the handsome gifts and testimonial  had taken him unawares as nothing of  the kind was expected by him and their  flattering ad.1 ress was undeserved. He  could find no words at his command to  givo expression to his thoughts for the  handsome manifestion of the .miners,  and hoped they would accept his heartfelt thanks for the kind remembrance  as he was too conlused to do justice to  the occasion. A pleasant few hours  were afterwards spent in lhe bunkhouse  around a festive board, during which a  few speeches were made and toasts  oilered for the future success of their  guest of the evening wherever he may  cast his lot.
