Array VOL.  -NO. 45.  SANDON; 13. C, SATURDAY, APRJL 20, 1902.  $2.00 PER YEAR.  Tlie Slocaii Sovereign Mines  A Meeting" Will Be Held  About May  1st  to Decide on Future Work.  There will be a meeting of tlie shareholders   and   directors   of   the   Slocan  Sovereign  Mining Company,  Limited,  about May 1st in Montreal, to decide on  future development of their  properties.  Thc company  have had  a kind  of a  stumbling block in  their  way from the  start; but matters are getting settled,  and they will soon get down to business  and   commence   shipping.    At present!'  all  ol  their   properties   are   in  better'  shape than ever before.   The Sovereign  mine has sufficient stoping ground  for  the next two years' work,  on the Reco  lead, has   from   12   to   24    inches   of  ore    showing.'-',   running  from   100   to  120 ounces  in  silver and  70 to SO per  cent lead,    Some 230  tons of ore were  shipped from this chute,  which  is 400  feet long in  No. 4   tunnel,  and runs  almost to the surface in  three tunnels,  giving a vertical 'depth of (500 feet.   There  was discovered last year a parallel lead  running through this   property,   which  is thought to be the continuation of the  famous Goodenough lead.     Surface assays show 200 ozs. silver and 75 per cent,  lead.   About 20. tons of clean  ore   have  been taken out during development as  well as 2,000  tons of concentratiiitr on-  deposited on,the dumps.     Transportation is an easy matter as the Noble Five  train passes the portal of No. 4   tunnel.  The property is situated on  Noble Five  mountain, adjoining the Reco and Good  enough mines, shippers of some of   tin  highest grade ore in the country.  In addition to owning the Sovereign  the company own the Madison groui  of claims, comprising the Madison, Ar  genta,Madison Fraction and GreatEast-  e.rn. The xirgenta lead is what id termed as dry ore, coiitaing high values in  silver and a small percentage of lead.  Values from this lead have given 1,200  'ounces in silver and as low as 7 percent,  lead.   So far SO tons have been shipped  throe valuable claim,--, comprising a  group, namely the Iron Crown, Kenneth  and Mount Royal. Little wo.ik lias yet  been done on these; hut the showings  are very encouraging as assays taken  last summer showed 150 ounces of silver  and 80 percent lead to the ton. The  property has two leads running through  its length. These claims adjoin tlie  Eureka mine from which 200 tons of  high grade ore have been shipped.  All of the company's holdings are  crown granted, eight all told, and comprise 235 acres. It is considered in the  camp that the company have valuable  properties and it is hoped that' we may  see the Sovereign and Argent a mints on  the shipping list at no distant future.  In Tunnel and Stope.  The Payne is getting in the balance of  its machinery. Two Pelton water  wheels went out on Monday.  It is rumored the Slocan Star is shortly to put on a large force; but the  authorities will not confirm the report.  It is expected that a small force of  men will be put to work on development  on the Ruth wben H. B. Alexander, the  manager, returns from the old country.  J. M.

Very few of them  ���������v-ill increase their forces until about li,t  of June when the surface water shall  have disappeared.  {*'  ������������������The Solid,  it is  reported,  has   made  i fresh strike recently. -A shaft has  ieen run down 30 feet, tlie ore broadening out and gaining in quality every  foot. There are at present only 6ix  men at work, but as soon as the  snow permits", a full force of men will  lie put to work. ������������������'''���������  Town Jottings.  F. J.

On this claim   there   is   another   lead  opened up by three tunnels  run  in   on  the same exposing bunches of ore here  and there, but further work will have to  be dono to properly develop it.

To cross a  portion of the creek, he rested one end  "fa plank  on a pile, of lumber.    After  getting on his  contrivance,   the lumber  gave wav and threw him in  the creek.  In   his   fall,   his head struck one log,  cutting a gash three inches  long, nnd  his  thigh  struck  another   and   barely  escaped a fracture.���������  The carpenters are , making good  headway on the tin me.

It won't be much too soon, as  'he water is now increasing fast in  Che creek. '     .  Silver is dropping in value. The  decreased demand for money in India  and the unfavorable results from  Mexican and Chinese trade are assigned as the cause.

It is not true, as reported in some  papers that the Sandon city council is  going to put in a separate water system  ���������they are not disposed to use Ihe one  available, and this will shortly lead to  the cancellation of much of the insurance of the place.

His story   confirms   the  thecity Thursday week and met number  of our leading citizens in Mr. Sandi-  land's office, and they agreed to cooperate with the other "lodges" of the  interior. The idea is through organization to fully acquaint ail visitors with  newspaper reports that tlie local parliament has degenerated into a body of  janglere.

We are told by the Bluestreak that  that the Labor party platform adopted  at 'Kamloops is the ablest state document ever produced in this country. It  took 56 able bodied, healthy men two  days to draft it, and here it is body  and bones:  ���������1. The gradual abolition of all taxes  on the producer and tbe products of the  producer,     shifting     them   onto   land  values.  2. Government ownership of railways and all,means'.of communication.  3. Government  establishment    and  .operation of smelters and refineries to  treat all kinds of minerals. ������������������,.-.  4. The extension of the franchise to  women.  5. Abolition of property qualification  for all public offices.  G.   Farm improvements, implements .  and stock  not, to  be  taxed,   and  wild  lands to be assessed at the price asked  for them by speculative holders.  7. No land or cash subsidies; lands  to be held for actual settlers.  8. Ten per cent of all public Kinds to  be immediately setaside for educational  purposes and education of all children  up to the age of 10 years to be free,  Hecular and compulsory; text books  free; meals and clothing to be supplied  when necessary.  9. Compulsory arbitration of labor  disputes.  10. Restriction of Oriental immigration by a law on the lines of the Natal  act, and if said law be disallowed it be  repeatedly re-inacted until the end  sought be attained.  11. To protect us from Asiatics  already in the province the government  shall insert a clause in all private acts  to this effect: "This act shall be null  and void if the company fails to enter  into an agreement with the government  as to the conditions of construction and  operation," and that the House pass a  resolution to prohibit the employment  of Asiatics on all franchises granted by  the Provincial House.  12. Conservation of our forest riches;  pulp land leases to contain a provision  for re-foresting, so as to produce a perennial revenue and make pulp manufacture a growing and permanent  industry.  13. The act compelling the scaling  of logs by government scalers be en-  enforced.  14. Absolute reservation from sale  or lease of a certain part of each known  coal area, so that state-owned mines  may, if necessary, be easily possible in  the future.

When the good liver is a business man  and rises from a  full meal to plunge  at once into work  requiring mental  effort the result is  almost sure to be  disastrous, because  digestion draws  upon the same  nervous forces  which arei employed in thought.  In time the stomach becomes diseased, the processes of digestion  and nutrition are  imperfectly performed and there  is a physical  breakdown.  Dr. Pierce's  Golden Medical  Discovery cures  diseases of the  stomach and other  organs of digestion and nutrition. It  eliminates the effete poisonous matter  which originates in the system as a consequence of imperfect digestion. It gives  sound health to the whole body.  "I wish to say to tlie world that Dr. Tierce's  Golden Medical Discovery has proved a great  blessing to me," writes Mrs. KUen ]���������,. Itacon, of  Shult.sh.iry, I-'ranklin Co., Mass. "Prior to  September, 1S97, 1 had doctored for my stomach  trouble for several years. going through a course  of treatment without any real benefit, In  September, 1S96, I had very sick spells and grew  worse; could cat but little. I commenced, in  September. 1897, to take Dr. Pierce's medicine,  and in a short time I could eat and work. I  have gained twenty pounds in two montiis."

Tlie stalhvarls evidently  never gave this phase of lhe question  the slighest consideration. Supposing  now that in the municipality of Chilli  wack, under the present order of things,  the raxes were 25.cents an acre. To  meet the obligations of the Labor party,  it would force on the country, and land  alone liable for taxes,' a burden not  be less than 1^3.00 perace annually.  Now, it does not even require the intelligence of anyone of those 56 stallwarls  possesses to prove that taxation docs  not improve the producing qualities of  the land���������that under this heavy taxation the farms would grow no more than  they did before it. Then what? The  farmers .would have to ask more for  their products than they did before,  and they could not get it, as they would  be undersold by the products of the  United States, Manitoba and tbe Territories. But this is not all. If land  hunters knew in advance, as they  certainly would, that land in B. C. bote  four or five times the taxation it bore in  the Territories to the east, they would  buy in the east, and instead of supply-  out* mines and other industries with  home-grown and home-raised products,  all requirements would be imported  from the east. Instead ol charging  the miners $1 a day for board,, the  mines would then have to charge  $1.25; and with the prices of minerals-  low abroad, and costs of supplies at  home going up, the country would soon  be in tbe proverbial "cocked" hat.  The 5(1 gentlemen at the convention  never took this view of lhe questions  and for tbe best of all reasons, because  it did not suit their purpose. Wild  lande too are to be assessed at the prices  asked for them by the speculative  owners. Would not the assessors have  a grand time assessing under such conditions. How could they find the prices  asked by the owners?   Every  assessor  To the Deaf.

In  speaking  to Mr.  Green's  motion  favoring a provincial silver-load refinery  the other day,   the   Hon. E. (.".  Prior,  Minister of Mines, pointed out  that in  March lead was worth-but   .'50 a ton of  2.000 lbs.  in   London,  Eng.,    that  the  freight, was about ,20,   leaving but $1.50  a cwt. for the producer, from which wsis  to be deducted  smelting,  refining,  insurance, exchange on money  anil some  other   charges.     lie,   of   course, knew  mining csinnot pay other expenses considered,   sit these  figures: and  yet   he  persists in retaining the two  per cent  tax   on   output.    It  appears  to us the  government  have at 'their  linger ends  incontrovertible  reasons11 why'this   infamous tax should   he  abolished.    If it  was si fact that in in ing was but a minor  industry in tin; country,  and   on which  but little hinged outside of its advsinco-  lnent, there might be some plea for the  retention  of this tax; bul   when  it   is  known the whole country is thrown  on   boats,  its beam end because of mining-insveti  vity,    the   retention   is   simply   inex  plieable.  ment, and clause 12 asks transportation  companies legislated out of existence to'  furnish fioe transport to members of  the assembly, judtres, &e.  Clause 10 demands the re-enactment  ofdi-allowed legislation "until the end  soiigln be sitlsiined." AYhen that end  is possible is not shown. The .most of  people are of the opinion; if'that an tin-  consi itulional act be disallowf-d as often  as it is re-enacted, it. novel becomes law,  the conclusions ot the, Labor part)' to  the conLriuy notwith.sliHiding.

'���������    Tlie Reasons Why.  The Pay-streak has come to U.e defence  of the council in refusing to make a contract with  Sandon Water & Light Co..  for a water supply  for two good, and  valid   reasons���������because    the   company  cannot  supply  water, and if they could,  according to the legal mind of IMr.  I\Ic-  Adams   they   are   obliged to  supply it  gratis.   As to the  lirst,   the company  say they have a suflicient witter supply,  andrthe public are  bound  to  take the  opinion of those  who know  something  about the matter in preference to thatof  a mail who knows nothing about it, and.  cares even less,   when   the  record   of  friends who give him-boodle- is  involved.    It is an easy matter for the council  'to put   the hydrants to  a  test   before  acting  on  prejudice and   jeopardising  the property of the  whole town.   The  public know  that while water   may be  scarce in tbe   winter,   it   takes   but   a  small stream to supply a large  volume  from   now on,   when   danger   is most  imminent.   Mr.''Harris says  he never  opposed a   fair   settlement   of   all   the  accounts   before  the  fire;   and   if the  council failed to carry out their side of  a proposition for a settlement, it is no  reason why   contracts   should   not  be  made   for   the   present.   It is   not  so  much  the  dillerences of   the  past the  public are interested  in  as it is  safety  for the future.    If the city lost what is  alleged   to   have     been   an    excellent  opportunity to settle old sores through  si laxity on  the 'part of past' councils,  the public, should not be forced  to run  the gauntlet again.     But   pray,   why  does not the   present  council  approach  "  the matter ina business way  and offer  ,\ to close' tlie ante-lire accounts,  as the  Bluestreak says, .the late council and  the Sandon Water Works and Light Co.  had agreed to close  them,   but did not  through laxity on the partof the former;  The situation is precisely the same now  as it was then, and we are confident tlie  Sandon Water & Light Co.  will do now  what they offered to do after the iirp, if  the other side is only  put in  the same  shape.    Why does  not  the   Bluestreak  urge   a   settlement   now on   the   lines  proposed then?  If again, the Bluestreak's contention  is a sensible one���������if the provisions of  ihe wafer clauses act will compel the  Sandon Water and Light Co. to furnish  1 he city with wafer and hydrants for  lire protection free of charge, "why  don't the council employ McAda'ms as  -olicitor and proceed to- compel?" It  would be foolish for the city to pay, if  ihe water clauses'act reads sis the new  city barrister says it does, and it is  ���������atill more foolish for the council to leave  the city without protection when it can  he so easily and so cheaply obtained.  VVe believe the water clauses' act has  the same force in all parts- of the province that it has iu Sandon, and we  know of no city or town circumstanced  >is Sandon is getting free water. But  then all lawyers are not able; some  of them are not even bright, and none  of them appear able to cope with San-  don's limb of Blackstone. Happy is  /Sandon in its legal light, and happy will  be the people until the next fire comes.  Since starting the new bakery on St.  Patrick's day, James Woods has been  kept quite busy supplying his customers  with bread. He says his trade is better  than it was even before the fire, when  the place had more people. He is an  old-timer, gives good value for the  money he Rets, and should have  general support.  lomiiilon (  . To be well dressed.
