Ward McDonald is spending a few  days in the city.  XV. J. Twiss. of Kaslo, was rustling  insurance hereon Monday.  John Daly was in the city on Monday,  having come in on his go-devil.  Mrs. A, F. Mt'.Gully, of Greenwood, is  visiting with Mrs. Geo. Huston.  Mr. and Mrs. Jus. Vallance left on  Monday for a long visit at the coast.  The Sandon ore shipments for the  week were:    Payne 40 tons, Ruth 20.  Miss Hatt returned to Vancouver  after spending her 'vaetion with Mrs.  E. L. Christie.  Mr. J. E. Lovering, teacher, reached  here on Saturday, and alone, contrary  to prophecy.  Our city Sunday schools will have  their'annual picnic on Friday next to  Silverton. Get the little ones .all ready  in tune.  Mrs. (Rev.) Robb and her mother,  Mrs. Grant, left for the home of the  latter-in Greenwood on Monday, where  Mrs. Robb will visit for some time.    ' ���������  Win. McDougall, of Kaslo, was in the  district the past few days looking up  business for a machine shop he and  associates are likely to establish in  Kaslo.     ���������������������������';..  Smith Curtiss says he won't run for  parliament again if he can help it.  Thank God, he can help it. All he has  to do is not go around bull dozing for a  nomination.  Sheriff Tuck siezed the Patterson  grocery and bakery the other day,in j  the interest of a Nelson Jinn ; but when  the rent and sheriffs bills are paid  there will be nothing for creditors holding claims of over $1,000...  The burned bridge on the Nakusp   &  Slocan Ry.  will  be  repaired   in two or  three days when trains will go through  again.   At present all passengers   and  . baggage are transferred.  Capt. Adams, of Montreal, -father of  Walter C. Adams, died in Montreal on  the 10tli. Me had been a sea captain  for many years, but lately he became  interested in many B. G. mining properties.  T. 17. McAllister and P. E. Simpson,  old time Saiidonites, who served in the  Boer war, returned on Thursday evening without a scratch, though they  ���������went through some thrilling experiences, some particulars of which we  will give in our next issue.  It appears to us the citizens of Sandon should do something to honor two  of McAdams' "damned fools" that have  returned from the front. When they  can banquet slanders and liars, they  certainly 'should do something to' honor  Canadians who risked their lives in the  preservation of Great Britain's honor  and integrity. It is lhe duty of  mayor to act in the matter.  The K. & S. Railway Company have  had a great deal of trouble for some days  with bush firee, but all tho same they  have managed to give us a pretty fair  service all through.  Rev. Mr. Shearer, who represents the  Lord's Day Alliance, delivered an interesting lecture here on Thursday evening on Sabbath Observance. At the  close a branch of the alliance was formed with the Mr. Robb, president;  Father Cote and Rev. Mr. Melntyre,  vice presidents, and J, E. Lovering,  sec.-treas.  Notwithstanding all the piopecy in  the past that the Prince of Wales would  never become king, ho was on Saturday  last crowned Edward VII. Ha is a  lawyer by profession, or at least holds  the degrees of D. O. L. and LL. D.  Should he live to the 9th of November  next, he will be 61 years of age. He  was created a barrister at 20 years of  age, though it is hardly likely he will  ever have to plead at the bar for a  living. Had he to do it, however, ho  could make his mark as he is oiie of the  best platform speakers in his entire  realm.    Long Live the King.  It is simply amusing to read the  arguments of the penny whistle papers  of the country advanced in favor-'of  criticising in the press, the merits  cases before the courts. The fact remains newspapers should not criticise  such cases for evident ��������������������������� reasons. All  of cases before courts arc supposed to  be'decided by the evidence of witnesses.  Witnesses are expected to tell just what  they do'know of facts bearing on cases  being tried, and not what thoy hear,  are told, or read in the press. Many  witnesses, however, are influenced by  what they read and on the stand are  prone to give what -th'e3r believe from  reading or otherwise, and not what  they know. It is to prevent tlie making of evidence for witnesses, that press  comment is very properly prohibited.  Mr. and Mrs. Melntyre, of the Glen  Peebieshire, Scotland, came in on  Thursday's C. P. R. for a visit with  their daughter, Mrs. Scott, wife of  Mr. A. Scott, manager of the Canadian  Bank of Commerce. By missing a train  at, Revelstokc, Ihey escaped the wreck  of the previous day. Mrs, Melntyre  went to Honolulu some two years ago  witli a sou who was practically an  invalid, and Mr. Melntyre went there a  short time ago to bring 'her home.  They called here on the return trip.  Mr. Melntyre is one of tho leading  horticulturists of Scotland, and has for  several years occupied a position on the  executive of the Scottish Royal Horticultural Society. They will remain a  few days, as they want to take the  ocean voyage about the, end of the  month.  te^D^'llSGIDB'N  Engineer  James Connaeker   Killed.  One of tiie worst railway accidents  that ever took place in this vicinity  occurred on tho Nakusp and Slocan  branch of the C.P.R. some Smiles north  of Rosebery on Tuesday last. At that  point there is a trestle some 40 feet  high, between two cuts, in a curve on  tho road, which conditions rendered  timely observation and precaution out  of the question. As the train, which  had but the engine and baggage and  passenger cars, emerged from one cut  and got on to the trestle, some 40 feet  distant, Engineer James Connaeker  saw the trestle was on fire, the wind  blowing the smoke the other way and  and preventing earlier observation,  blew of! steam and whistled down the  emergency brakes, but too late, as in an  instant the engine was through tlie  burnt trestle, the baggage car on top of  it, and the passenger car one end down  and the other end in the air. Fireman  Clarice .with great presence of mind  jumped out on the left a distance of 20  feet or more* and saved his life. A jump  for the engineer On the other side on  account of a creek would have been  40 feet or more; but, however, he did  not make it, and his; charred remains  were found next morning in the ruins,  one leg and one arm being torn, off.  How he met death no one knows, but  Mines and Mining.  The Payne has a couple of experts at  work installing new electric drills.  The Noble Five has 13 men at work  and the force will bo increased later.  The Antoine will soon have a shipment of ore to pack down to the K. & S.  E.'M. Sand Hands says they are working six men at the Blue Bird, and have  a cook employed. There is a large  quantity of ledge matter in the vein,  but so far the body of paystreak is not  very large.  Byron N. White returned to Spokane  on Tuesday, and it is announced there  is nothing new at tlie mine as there-  suit of his visit. All told the property  has 25 men at work on development  mostly, and the mine is likely to run on  this way till winter at least.  Mr. E. G. Robinson, son of Alf  Robinson, of London, Ont., is now in  the camp for a year's residence. He  and W. J. Patterson will commence  assessment work on the Palmita,, near  Three Forks, in a few days. He says it-  is not unlikely the companies that own  the Palmita and the Ajax, in both of  which his father is interested, may ere  long commence work on a large scale on  these properties.  Business with the American Boy is  improving fast, and the staff will soon  reach 40 to 50 men. The company have  recently closed a contract with tho  Noble Five Company to bringdown their  the supposition  is  that he was caught  ore over the train at the rate of   15 cars  the  Hotel Reeo Arrivals.  ��������� J T Cance, Galesville; F J Deane, S  P Tuck, J F Choate, Nelson; R Church,  J-R Parke, Jas Lyon, J Hickey, Spokane; W S Drewrv, New Denver; D McDonald, F M Stout, Denver, Colo: J II  Taylor, Winnipeg; P A Molson^ Salt  Lake; W McDougall, J L Retnllack, W  J Twiss, John Daly, Kaslo; J C Gray, J  Snell, Vancouver; W Harris, Slocan.  between the engine and the tender  when the latter doubled' upon the  former,and was killed instantly. Brake-  man McCormick had one leg broken  and the other badly bruised, but though  all on the train were badly shaken up  fortunately no one else sustained injuries of any��������� moment. There were on  the train Dr. Power, who attended to  the injuries of McCormick^ and he had  him sent by handcar to Hill's thence by  boat to New Denver hospital, the foreman of the Sunset mine, the C. P. li.  road master,- bridge inspector, and two  other oflicials and Mrs. A. Scott.  As there are no bush (ires in the  neighborhood, and no (ire was observed  passing over some four or live hours  before, the assumption is the fire caught  from the engine in tlie morning, and  no blame can be placed on anyone. In  less than 10 seconds the two cars wen.*  on fire, and in 20 minutes the train and  all contents excepting four bags of mail  which Baggageman Barton nianged to  throw out, were in ashes. Barton lost  some money, papersand other valuables.  As soons as the train hands realized  the situation Conductor Brett wired to  Nelson for a passenger car, which  brought in the passengers next morning, they having walked from the scene  of the accident to Hill's in the evening,  some four miles, when the boat met  them and took them to New Denver.  The remains of Connaeker were taken  to Nelson, where we understand he has  two sister, for burial. In life he was a  genial and highly respected man.  a month or so for, shipment to the  Everett smelter. ' Late shipments gave a  value of :fS00 a ton net to the car, which  is fast wiping out the $15,000 debt at  the first of the. year. Stoping is going  ahead in, 3, 4, 5 and 6 levels, which are  said to contain a supply for threo  years or more.  McAdams   stole  into town.Thursday  night a couple of hours after dark, as he  was ashamed to face the Sandon people.  On  his arrival  a squeak   from  a half  dozen   or   so   of   boys was given,  that  would do credit to a coon hunting party.  After reaching the Miners' union  hall,  Jim Wilkes,  the   man who   was   chief  instigator in  throwing tho country on  its beam ends and  doing  hundreds   of  honest miners out of employment, gayo  a short address in defence   of villifying  human character and upsetting constituted authority, as these are McAdams'  trump cards.   F. J. Deans, of the Nelson News, was also there in the flowers  of oratory, to see  if  he could help his  paper thereby, no doubt.  Ho will, however, know more on this head later on.  The   young   people  of  the town who  patronize all dance were there to partake in  the dance   that   followed; but  there was next to no oiie present   from  a distance.   The outside public are of  the opinion  they  at least should  not  condone vilification and falsehood.   McAdams and pushers have learned from  the exhibition the general public conclude they can gain but little by handling pitch.

SATURDAY, AUGUST 10, 1902.  TO MINERS.  It is not the duty of a public journal  to lecture any class of the community  on the way  they should conduct their  business, though it is its special duty to  deal   with   all    matters    of   a   public  character that afreet the interests of the  country in which it ia published.   The  miner is the pivot of this country  on  which its future must move���������backwards  or forwards.   He is, therefore, entitled  to the best consideration of all  classes  of the community.   But  whilo  he is  such an important factor in the advancement or retrogression of the country, he  is   powerless   to   accomplish  anything  without   the   aid  of  capital.    In  the  development of the country, he is then  the   twin   brother  of  capital.   As the  one advances or recedes, so must the  other���������their interests are inseparable.  Put this fact before many of the miners,  however, and their awswer is, "Capital  is here for speculation only."   If this  expression'was meant in its legitimate  sense, no one could find.fault, but it is  generally employed derogatively, meaning it is here to be plundered.   This is  the  fatal    mistake.     There    are   101  countries in which capital can be employed in 101 different ways with profit,  instead of investing in,mines in British  Columbia.   This is an   absolute   fact,  that   should   be   borne   in   mind   at  every turn by the miners  of  British  Columbia that expect to make a living  at their calling.   Our natural resources  are good, and capital will come here if  in sporting  parlance it, is allowed "a  fair fighting chance."   If not allowed  this, it will simply go where the odds are  not   against it.     It will not play   here  continually   with   "the  dice  loaded";  this may as well be learned once for all.  To come here and go into  the fight,  capital must be assured our legislation  is not all one sided���������in favor of  tbe  miner���������rendering investments the subject for public or labor plunder.   It must  be assured of a reasonable chance of  making safe investment and legitimate  interest.   It is not enough  to assure a  capitalist that if he makes three investments, losing two, he must be contented  with bank interest on  the third.   He  must be assured that if he loses two, he  must  be   allowed  a   fair chance* over  wages and other expenses to make  on  the   third  reasonable interest  on   his  total investment.   If this condition  is  guaranteed B. C. will get all the money  it wants.   If it is not assured   things  may drag on as they are for a lifetime.  Sending windbags to parliament who  promise everything  to  labor  for  the  votes it brings, and  demanding special  legislation in the interest of miners, is  not the way to encourage the income of  NURSING  MOTHERS  A mother's poor health is bad  enough for the mother but  worse still for the nursing  baby.  Mothers find Scott's Emul-  sion a nourishing and  strengthening food. If the  breast milk is scanty or thin  Scott's Emulsion will make it  rich ,nd more abundant.  "When mothers take Scott's  Em .sion the babies share in  the benefits. Thin babies grow  fat.   Weak babies get strong.  We'll send you a little to try, if you like.

It is  the very  reverse���������it is the millstone that cripples  mining,  and as a consequence throws a  wet blanket over labor in all  the other  industries of the country.   This is what  we especially want to impress upon the  miner.   By the encouragement of capital,   investments   are   made   in   every  direction, labor comes into that demand  that forces wages up to all that can  be  paid with profit to the employer.   This  aud this only, no matter what base wood  politicians may say to the contrary,  is  all that can be done for labor,  and the  sooner miners learn it the better for  themselves and the country. This is  best for a dozen or more of the best of  all reasons. It gives the highest wages  on "the liye and let live" principle to  the miners; it expands tluough them  the resources of tbe country-lumbering farming, fishing, commerce, &c,  employing labor at fair wages in all the  other walks of life.  But this is not all���������there is more that  ought to have special force with the  industrious miner, and talk with others  on any reasonable basis is, of course,  useless. There are miners by the  thousand in this province that have  claims or interests in claims they want  to see converted into cash, and this  conversion can only be made by the  in come iof capital. The more capital  that is encouraged to come in in safety,  the greater will be the demand for  mining claims and the more readily will  the claim owner be enabled to realize.  Five and six years ago,' money was  plenty..and sales were easily made.  The reason is that then we had no  hamperinglegislation,capitalistshadtlie  proverbial "fighting chance"  that has  course, some of them thought the  original sentence was too severe:  Now that the McAdams incident has  been closed and the offending editor has  been discharged from custody, it may  not be inappropriate to make a few remarks regarding the matter. So much  has been said in the press of Eastern  Canada and so unanimous have the  papers in that part of the Dominion  been in condemning the action of the  bench and calling for such legislation  as would prevent citation for contempt  under the circumstances' which were  present in this case, that one might be  quite well assured the eastern editors  did not know what they were talking  about. In very nearly every instance  their absolute ignorance is their only  possible excuse for the reflections which  they are prone to make regarding affairs in tliis province. The fact that  so much has been, said in the 'eastern  publications regarding this matter has  given it a seriousness out of all proportion to its importance.  It is quite probable that it would have  been better had the bench paid no attention whatsoever to the attacks made  upon it by that obscure publication issued in Sandon, but, after' having determined to discipline the editor for liis  comments upon the judiciary it is difficult to see how any punishment that  would satisfy   the  case  and   be   more  now disappeared  through  the special   lenient than that  accorded  him, could  Marriage is very largely an accident.  In few cases do men or women set up a  standard of manly or womanly excellence  and choose by it. In most cases people  become engaged as the result of propinquity rather than because of any deep  rooted preference.  And so it often  happens that the  wire enters upon  the obligations of  maternity just as  thoughtlessly as  she entered on the  marriage relation,  because no one  has warned her  of the dangers she  faces.  Thousands of  women, become  invalids for lack  of knowledge of  themselves. It is  to this large body  of women that Dr.  Pierce's Favorite  Prescription  legislation demands by the pistols of  the agitators and clamored for by the  masses in a period of blindness. Of  course, all wrongs can be rectified ; but  before this can be done all miners and  others must come to their sober senses  and be led by their native judgment  and not by the fire devourings of the  smooth tongued agitators, who live in  the tempests of troubles that always  end in loss for the honest and industrious toiler. These are our honest  convictione, and we place them before  the industrious miners of this country.  comes as a priceless boon, because it  cures womanly ills.  "Favorite Prescription" establishes  regularity, dries weakening drains, heals  inflammation and ulceration and cures 1 candidates for the   whole country,   for  It is repoited in Rome quarters that  incase of a general election this fall,  Mr. John L. Retallack will likely become  a candidate in the Slocan division. We  have every respect for that gentleman,  and every confidence in his ability to  represent any constituency well and  believe if he had been elected when he  ran before it would have been a fortunate thing for the country as things  turned out; but we dislike Importations, and think the Slocan should be  ambitious enough to select candidates  within its own boundaries. Last election, Kaslo sent out three candidates,  and we know of no reason why it should  bo allowed, ambitious as it is, to select  female weakness.  It makes weak women  strong, sick women well.  "After my first child was born," -writes Mrs.  Jordan Stout, of Kawcettgap, Frederick'Co., Va.,  "my health was very poor for a loiig time, and  last winter I was so bad with pain down in back  I could hardly move without great suffering.  ���������My husband got me a bottle of Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription and a vial of his ' Pleasant  Pellets,' which 1 used as directed. In four days  I was greatly relieved, and now, after using the  medicine three months, Iseem to be entirely  well. I can't see why it is that there are so  many suffering women when there is such an  easy wav to be cured. I know your medicines  are the best in the world."

If King Soloinan was alive today, and  knew McAdams from infancy, he could  not have hit hi in squarer between the two  eyes, than the Vancouver Province does  in the following. Nearly every respectable paper in the province, that knows  the Paystreak, is equally pronounced in  denunciation of the  print   though, of  have been meted out. All reflecting  persons, knowing the circumstances of  this case, will unhesitatingly agree  that the sentence passed upon Mr. McAdams was no more than he deserved,  and it is to be hoped that now that he  has received a remission of his punishment he will take warning and keep a  straighter course for the future.  This newspaper editor has for some  considerable time been inviting trouble.  He has consistently courted the admiration of that section of. the-populace1  given to applauding newspaper articles  which go beyond the bounds of the conventional on mora] questions, and which  are prone to bid,i defiance, in a mere  spirit of bravado, to all forms of constituted authority. Mr. MeAdiims has  struggled hard to be a second Lowery,  but he is unfortunate enough to lack  the ability and prudence which distinguish the versatile editor of the New  Denver Ledge. When ho failed, however, in incisivenees and force ho made  good in violence and noise.  Had  Mr.,,McAdams   been   genuinely  convinced that there was necessity  for  reform   among   the    members  of   the  judiciary of this province, and had   he  frankly   and    fearlessly    pointed   out  where he   though   a change might bo  made, or what individual  memljer  or  members of the bench should be removed, and for what cause���������urging all this  in the interests of the province and the  judiciary itself���������he would have been regarded as a brave and public spirited  man,  mistaken, perhaps, but honestly  mistaken and possessing the courage of  his convictions and tho force of character   to   state   his   opinion.    Instead of  this, however, he sought simply to gain  applause and notoriety  for himself by  making a sweeping charge of  incompetency and want of .'character against  the whole body of our judiciary.   What  he did,  he did,  not with the  intention  of   remedying   a   public  evil,    if  any  exists, but with the idea of attracting  popular attention by a display of cowboy journalism.

The .-McAdams' Incident.  Continued from page 2.  ��������� on sacred inslitiilions and delimit challenge's to the powers that be. together  with general vilification of conspicuous  public, men, is a leading characteristic  of this style of newspaper writing.  It is, however, no more needed in the  mining camp than it is in (he oldest  settled communities. The residents of  the mining centres of British Columbia  ., are as law abiding, as intelligent, and  in eycry respect as responsible a body  of men as can be anywhere found in  Canada, and they possess no more sym-,  pathy with violence or ��������� buiieoiiie than  people elsewhere do.  When Jlr. McAdams was cited for  contempt and his sentence was passed  upon him, he displayed the true spirit  which actuated him by makinga humble  and ample apology. Had he been convinced that his accusations were true  and that it was desirable in the interests  of the people thut the attention of the  government should be called to evils  possible of removal, he would have  taken his punishment courageously  and in the consciousness that it wi'fi  not deserved ; and he would have been  upheld and sustained as well by public  applause as by that higher approval  which he would have found in the  recollection of his own motives.  To commit an o fie nee in cold blood, to  vilify the whole body of men to whom  is entrusted the dispensing of justice  in this country, to boast of what he  had done, and while he was yet free  to repeat his accusations and glory  in his prospective martyrdom,and then,  when taken in charge, meanly to evade  the punishment ho knows he deserves,  and which he intentionally courted, by  confessing his fault and going on hi?  knees to sue for pardon, is not tin  act of a brave man satisfied with his own  rectitude; it is not eveii the act of s,  self respecting gamester.  It-is gratifying to know that the remission of the sentence applied for has  been granted. There is little, if-'any,  fear of a recurrence of the oll'ence, and  this being the case, nothing would be  gained by punishing a craven.  ���������In'such " cases' as  this,  however, it  would hardly do  for  the Federal   gov-  veriiineiit to act on the suggestion made!  by so many of  the  papers   in Eastern j  Canada,   and   promptly and unhesitatingly   over rule   the .findings   of   thej  judges.   Let the government see   to it  that in all cases   men   who   are above  reproach  and above fear are appointed  'to the bench,   and  let their decisions,  (���������specially   in   matters   of   this    kind,  be final.

British Columbia Blight.  The following is from the Toronto  ,. World and contains a great deal of  truth. It oversteps the mark when il,  says "the mining business lias all gone  to pot," for it is increasing in the face  of all adversity, proving the vast le-  sources of the country. The American  anarchist is, of course, the worst  , element in the country ; but he is little  worse than the business man who pats  him on the back in his madness for the  few dollars he gets out of the anarchist  trade:  "They appear to be all at sixes  and  sevens in British Columbia.   The miners   and   working  classes   are ruining  the province by their extortionate  and  unreasonable demands, while the politicians are the   authors   of   all  kinds of  freak legislation.   Between labor troubles and political insanity the province  is fast becoming  a  fit   subject   for an  asylum where they treat deranged intellects.   United States anarchists seem  to   be   the  primary   cause  of  all the  trouble.   They   are   the   curse  of   the  province.   They   have   carried   on   an  incendiary agitation  for several years,  and the country is still damned by their  irrational treatment of tho  labor problem.   First of all,  they  paralyzed  the  gold   mining    industry    and   brought  general   discredit  upon   the    province  both at home and abroad.   The British  Columbia mining business has all gone  to pot and the foreign  labor agitators  are principally responsible for the disaster.   Now there is a strike in  the coal  mines  aud   the   trouble is spreading,  with the prospect of a general   closing  down of the smelters through a lack of  coke.'   British Columbia is a rich  mineral province.   It  would   make rapid  headway if it could only slake itself  free of all the pests that prey upon it."

PRINTING-.PU  jr  This is what the Winnipeg Free Press  says of McAdams. There is not a paper  of standing in Canada that does not  disapprove 'of his conduct; many of  them, the Free Press included, can  only see in his criticism a desire to  advance the interests of anarchy, as  this paper lias long contended :  "Mr. McAdams will return to his  editorial sanctum a much subdued  young man. His offence was a niott  serious one; and only those papers  which devote themselves to the teaching of the doctrines of anarchy will find  anything in his conduct calling for  commendation."
