 i    4     ,-���������   JL  VOL. 6.���������NO. 10.  SANDON, B. 0., SATURDAY, AUGUST 23, 1902.  $2.00 PJER YEAR.  Town Jottings.  Hamilton Byors was in the city on  Wednesday.  Nelson's back taxes for three years  are but $1,460���������an excellent showing.  Mrs. (Rev.) Beer, of Kaslo, was a  visitor in the city on Wednesday.  Mm. Petty, of Sllverton, has been  visiting friends in the city this week.  A. B. Docksteader has been rustling  insurance in the city for some days,  Messrs. E. J. Coyle and J. S. Carter,  C. P. R. officials, were here on Thursday  on business.  J. G. Steele, an old time mining man,  is in the city looking over his old  roaming haunts.  The C. P. R. of Wednesday crossed  the trestle near Rosebcry, the first train  since the accident.  Mrs. ThoB. Sharp returned from the  Rambler mine yesterday, where she  had been visiting Mrs. Chas. Culver.  Mr. Weed, topographical engineer of  the Sta<e of Idaho, is in the city this  week looking over some of the mines.  The Rev. Mr. Purdy, who used to  preach in the Presbyterian church here  last winter, is now stationed at Phoenix.  Mr. Kevin, a machinery dealer of  Portland, Oregon, spent a few days  here this week looking up orders for  his firm.       .  .". Geo. W. Hughes left on Thursday for  a trip to Seattle, Vancouver and  other  coast points  two weeks.  Mr. Garde, manager of the Payne,  has returned from a trip to the Lar-  deau. He says that it is a promising  country. The mineral veins as a ru!e  are not large, but they are quite rich  and numerous. The operation of the  railway has given much confidence to  the people, and the country is now on  the eve of considerable mining activity.  Since his return home Mr. Harris has  bee'n pretty well employed looking over  tho drift of his varied interests here-  He has but little to say of anything  except the mining outlook. He has a  surveyor at work looking over the workings of the Texas and the Reco, and the  report he may bring in will have some  bearing on the future operations on  these properties. However, it is so far  decided development work will be done  on these properties and the Rabbit Paw  and some mining and packing on the  two former, but the end in view is  making preparations for a large winter's  work. Mr. St. Elmo Davis, the foreman, has returned to take charge of all  work now to be done.  Col. Prior is getting a peep into the  true inwardness of things in his trip  through the Kootenay country. He  finds the great body of the miners  especially when conversed with singly  to take a most reasonable view of the  situation, ready to acknowledge that  agitations, demands and strife are  doing much injury to the country and  no service to the men. He even found  some who say they did not want the  eiglit hour law, and never asked for it.  He found others again who said the  He will be gone about I vaporings of many men in the Legislature were, indefensible, and that the  unions never, asked ��������� for many of the  Bills some of these men sought to put  through at Victoria.  Geo. McDonald, of McDonald & Ross,  returned Tuesday from a two weeks'  combined business and pleasure trip  through Alberta.  The Sandon Forwarding Co. lost a  horse worth $100 this week by tottering  over the trail. These accidents take the  profit ofl" packing.  The estate of the late Howard West  is valued at $3,050. Mr. H. Strickland,  oi New Denver, is executor, and letters  of probate have been issued to him by  the court.  We are told by those who know Mr.  John L. Retallack most intimately that  he has not the elighest intention of  contesting this or any other seat for  parliament in the approaching general  elections, and will not be a candidate,  under any circuinstances.  Harry Cleve was in the city on Thursday on his. return from "sogering."  He had no chance to get a shot at the  Boers at all as peace was declared  before he got half way across the ocean.  He has, however, the satisfaction of  wearing a fine suit of military clothes  and a lot of brass buttons.  Mr. F. J. Deane,   not satisfied   with  lending his presence to the McAdams  gathering here to do honor to an  arch  vihfier of human character,  has  to fib  about it in his paper for a justification  of his act.   For his information we may  say  tho only  professional  man  of tho  place at that gathering was Dr. Gomm;  about half thesaloonB were represented ;  but five out of the 20 business places of  tho  city,   and   none   from   the   bank.  Some of the young people who attend  dances regularly were there because it  was  a  dance;   and   a few   in miscellaneous callings put in an appearance  for a few minutes to escape the  boycott  of a certain institution of the place,  as  they told the writer.   It may be news  for Mr. Deane,   but it is none the less a.  fact, a large portion of the community  denouncea the record of a man whose  life appears   to be wholly made up   of  scurrilous attacks on law and religion.  If condoning such a course is a pleasure  to  Mr.  Deane,   he is welcome to his  fill of it.  Col. Prior's Visit.  Col. Prior, Minister of Mines, was in  the city Wednesday in his tour of the  province to hear the grievances of the  mine-owners and others of this part.  He was met at the station by Mr. Cliffe  who in turn introduced him to the mining men and others. In the evening he  was taken to dinner by Mr. Pratt of the  Last Chance, and had quite a conversation on mining and other matters.  He also met Messrs. Harris, H. B.  Alexander, Oscar White, B. J. Perry  ond one or two other mine representatives here, and heard what they had to  say on the local situation* lie lias evidently come to the conclusion that  while there is no large grievance there  are many small matters complained of  that in the aggregate amount to a considerable impediment. He is forcibly  impressed with the conviction mining  is the pivot on which provincial prosperity mainly depends. With mining  well under way, agriculture, lumbering,  &c. receive an assistance that brings  them well to the front.  Of course the Hon. gentleman would  not give an opinion as to what he would  suggest, but we are certain his visit will  be productive of much good. He found  the two per cent, tax, while not an important matter here, one of considerable  moment with the low grade ores in the  Boundary often as high as 20 per cent,  of the profits.  Of course, any law must be provincial  in its application, and for that reason  we believe a reduction of the two per  cent, tax is likely to follow.  He found, however, much diversity of  opinion as to what was best to be done  but all in favor of larger expenditures in the country and less taxation.  The Col. even often bucked tho tiger  during his trip meeting some of the  most arbitrary unionists, and having  the expected tilts but all ending in the  best of goodnature.  Mines and Mining.  The Noble Five is going to increase  its force in a short time.  The Whitewater mine, Whitewater,  shipped 84J<> tons of ore for the week.  From McGuigan the Rambler sent  out 8G tons for the week; R. E. Lee 20,  Slocan Boy 20.   Total 12G tons.  The Silver Glance near Bear Lake is  breaking many records in high grade  ore, a late shipment turned out $286  to the ton.  Mike Penrose, of McGuigan, reports  exposing one of the best showings of ore  between Sandon and Kaslo on a property he has 20 yards from McGuigan  station.  Mike Kerlin is said to have an excellent showing at the Mascot claim. He  deserves it, as he has worked long and  hard to capture something.  An engineer is now looking over the  Mountain Con and some news may be  heard of it later on. It is reported that  a ledge of carbonates was struck on the  property recently.  Still Another Water System,  Hotel Reco Arrivals.  CE Sands, Kaslo; J T Richardson,  W J Nelson, Winnipeg; E W Payne,  Granby; O Johnson, Revelstoke; E J  Coyle, Jas Beveridge, R S Phelps, Vancouver; JD Bade, Calgary; Jas Mos-  len, Milwaukee; A R Fingland, Three  Forks; D W Moore, Trail; J Nevins  Portland; JG Steele, A P Craig, EH  Hury, Spokane; A Milloy, M S Logan,  Rossland; Col Prior, J H Freeman,  Victoria; II T Twigg, W S Drewry, R T  Lowery, New Denver; A R Shewan,  Montreal; Walter II Weed, Washington; S E Olsen, G H Miller, W Ii  Bullock-Webster, WJ Blundell, Nelson.  If all the water systems being planned,  successfully mature, Sandon will surely  become immersed.     Slot Machine Joe  not to be outdone by any   other  water  system promoters, with   his   usual  indomitable courage, has taken advantage  of the maniacal wave that has   recently  struck the town and already hasanotice  posted up on Rabbit Paw creek asking  for privileges to utilise .041326 inches of  water for drinking purposes.   The said  creek is advantageously situated for the  purpose intended.   It rises just  below  Slocan Star gulch,   traversing   Sproat's  pasture  until  it  encounters   Lookout  stump from whence it suddenly swerves  north, crossing Harris' horticultural addition toSandon, emptying unseekingly  into the city flume.   The difl'orence between the altitude and point  of  diversion depenclsentirely upon thecondition  of the man who falls   into   the  creek.  Mr. Joe says this system will be an   independent ono and will not in anyway  interfere with any other   sytem   as the  capacity of the creek will   be   taxed   to  meet the demands of the   slot-machine  fiends.    He further states   that   should  the supply   become  overtaxed  at any  time he will install a reservoir  in   the  Reco   bar. to  receive   all   the    waste  sweat of mankind generated while operating the slot-machines.  E. Stein has taken out an execution  against the goods and chattels of R. B.  Patterson, an absconder.  mSH^B  wmtttammmmstsmsiam  wmmmmMtmsmmmmi.  mMmmmsm^mmmmmmmm^mmmmim^m THE MINING REVIEW���������Saturday, August 23, 1902.  S|!l  The Mining Review.  SATURDAY, AUGUST 23, 1902.  THE     MATTER    WITH    BRITISH  COLUMBIA.  "Throughout the length and breadth  of the Dominion the news comes of  the unexampled prosperity that prevails���������with possibly the one exception  of British Columbia. When this is the  case, naturally the first question asked  is, 'What is the matter with British  Columbia?'"  The matter with British Columbia is  that it has too many men in it of the  kidney of the Phoenix Pioneer man,  who wrote the foregoing���������men who  endorse everything done in the name of  miners' unionism, and denounce every  plea put forward for the protection of  capital invested in the mines. That  this country lias not prospered as it  should is evident to every one, and as a  consequence some of the best men are  leaving it for other fields. The causes  of non progress are these :  1. Wild catting.  2. Oveistocking of.some mines.  3. Sneaking through the Legislature  in its dying hours the eight hour law to  please James Wilks and a few other tin  horn politicians.  4. Sending wind bags like Smith  Curtiss to parliament who are continually introducing legislation to catch the  industrial vote, and shaking the confidence of capital abroad.  5. Defending labor unions in actions  that cripple mining.  6. Having our unions tied to the  heels of the Western Federation that  causes troubles here, to better the conditions of unions abroad.  7. An unsettled government and unstable mining.laws.'.  The first two are fast disappearing,  and what is the Pioneer doing to remove the rest?  Every observer  admits that agriculture, horticulture, ranching, lumbering,  &c,   can   only   increase as mining   increases   to   create local   consumption;  and while we  have a press (but thank  God such papers are dying fast)  that  endorses   every   fad  advanced by the  most rampant of unionists, and  always  ready   to   support  for parliament   the  men whose only consideration is securing vapor legislation, and the labor vote  of the country, nothing better can be expected.   It is  admitted  that this province   cannot   grow   until  mining improves;   and   it   is   equally   admitted  mining cannot improve till more capital  comes in.   Here it is then in a nutshell:  What are the Pioneer, Smith Curtiss,  M. P. P.,   et hoc genus, James Wilks,  the-Western  Federation of Labor,  the  orators   of   miners'   unions,   doing   to  bring  in   more   capital?     That's   the  point.     Are  they   advising   capitalists  they   will   give   them every chance to  make  reasonable   interest  on   investments?���������that  they will not urge embarrassing conditions   for  labor   until  investments make a reasonable interest?  THE    ESQUIMO  The Esquimo eats blubber.  The lumbermen eat pork.  These people are constantly  Exposed to cold and physical  strain. Experience has taught  them that fatty ��������� foods give  warmth  and   nourishment.  For those .. who have cold  | and thin bodies, or are threatened with, consumption or any  wasting disease, there is no fat  in so digestible and palatable a  form as Scott's Emulsion.  Physicians prescribe it.  Curtiss supported instead. Enough of  the latter would ..be elected to become  a nuisance in the House and block  pej-manent and wise legislation, and  again the question would be asked  when the natural consequences followed, "What ails British Columbia?"  We'll send you a Utile to try, if you like.  SCOTT   &'  UOWNE,      Chemists,  Toronto  These are the points. We know the  labor agitator will advise the laborer  this paper is his enemy when we set to  work to urge conditions that will create  labor. His position is, ol course, in.  compatible with common sense, but all  the same he will take it. .We venture to  say if the business interests of B. C.  were, next elections, to select for B. C.  40 candidates from among the best,  most capable and most honest men on  earth, they would be opposed by James  Wilks, the Western Federation, the  vaporers of the unions,, the Phoenix  Pioneer,   etc.,   and   men    like   Smith  A RETROSPECTIVE GLANCE.  The time is now  most opportune for  James Wilkes, John Houston and men  of that stamp, who have lived in the  agitations of the past  three years, stir-  ing up the inflammable leements of the  country against capital in  every  form,  to take a retrospective glance over the  results and see what they have done for  the country.   Before the'eight hour law  was passed, capital was coming into the  province   on   every   train,   confidence  everywhere abounded  in- our   country  and its resources,  miners  were everywhere employed at fair wages, lumber  men, agriculturists and others  in other  industries   were   everywhere employed  and making money  and  business men  were prosperous.   To help the country  progress  still more rapidly,   to   make  more  money   for   the   miners  and   to  bettercoiiditionsof all classes ostensibly,  the agitators   started   to   work,    they  succeeded, and the   consequences   are  before everybody.   Have   they proved  serviceable?   This is the question be:  fore the country.   It was declared from  the house tops that the man who protested against interference with  conditions  that were working   fairly  satis-  strating how they can.be picked after  they are procured, WTo suppose, however, this thing has got .'to run its  course.., Ab experience teaches even  fools, all,classes in the country will yet  learn a fair share of wisdom.   ���������  The Nelson News is writing vigorously in favor of tiie retention  of the two  per cent tax on the output of mines.    If  it was a fact that  real estate,  personal  property, and incomes were now properly  taxed in the country,  and  that further  revenue was required, under economical  administration,  there   would be some  defence for the   position of our Nelson  confrere; but when it is known to be a  fact that the government now   collects  less than $200,000 a year from the three  sources of revenue namnd, and that the  whole   machinery    of   provincial   advancement hangs on   the   progress of  mining that is already acknowledged to  lie crippled in many other ways this tax  is   simply   indefensible.   Our confrere  quotes from the records the taxes  paid  by   several   properties   last   year, and-  because they are not large,  it jumps  at  the conclusion,  the tax cannot be unusually large.   Does   it  occur  to   the  News that but few of the mines last  year worked to half their capacity���������that  most of them did less than one quarter  of what   they would have done, if conditions, the two per cent tax included,  allowed them todo more.   It would be a   '  poor policy for a farmer to load his  two  year old colts on which his advance as a  farmer might depend as heavily as he  factory all around, was an encmv to the .-,.-,,  , ,-,  , ,, ' , T,  ..--'������������������������������������ i. ..       ........ would load full grown   horses.   If our  miners���������that-the  agitators,   and  they  alone,  were the only true friends of the  country, the only men fit'to beentrust-  Are the dread of those whose lungs are  "weak."     Some   fortunate  people can  follow the summer as it goes southward, . .   ���������  and escape the cold blasts of winter and j ed Wlth ,the   management  of  aflairs  the chill airs of spring.     But :for the   legislative and otherwise.   Do the  peo-  majority of  people this is impossible,  Family cares and  business obligations hold them  fast.  "Weak" lungs  are made strong  \>y the use of Dr.  Pierce's Golden  Medical Discovery. It cures the  obstinate cough,  heals the inflamed tissues,  stops the hemorrhage, and restores the. lost  flesh to the emaciated body.  "I am a railroad  agent," writes I. Ii.  Staples, Esq., of  Jlarclay, Osage Co.,  Kans., "and four  years ago my work  keeping me in a  ���������warm room and  stepping out frequently into the  cold air gave mc bronchitis, which became  chronic and deep seated. Doctors failed to  reach my case and advised me to try a higher  air, but, fortunately for me, a friend also advised  me to try Dr. Pierce's medicines. I commenced  taking your ' Golden Medical Discovery,' and by  the time I had taken the first bottle I was better, and after taking about four bottles my  cough was entirely gone. I have found no necessity for seeking another climate.1'  Sometimes a dealer, tempted by the  little more profit paid on the sale of less  meritorious medicines, will offer the  customer a substitute as being "just as  good" as the "Discovery."

Send 31  one-cent stamps for book in paper covers,  or 50 stamps for cloth-bound volume, to  Dr. R. V. Pierce, Buffalo, N. Y.  ���������pie now realise this to have been a  fact,; or have . they learned they have  made a mistake? Which is it? This  paper is in favor of every concession  possible to the laboring classes in every  form ; but it is not a supporter of conditions that drive away capital -from  the country, cripple minor industries  and commercial enterprises and banish,  employment for labor from the country,  and for this reason it is by some  boycotted. The labor unions continue  importing their agitators, telling the  men what they ought to do, but none  of them tell them what they ought not  todo. It reminds one very forcibly of  the hawk teaching its young how to  pick bones without any instruction as  to how to find them first. It appears to  us very forcibly, it would be a much  better idea for the unions to import  speakers who would or could bIiow the  public how to draft laws, regulations,  usages and create public tern per calculated tobringin capital under the assurance  it would be fairly treated, to create work  and business for the people who are  now in the country. It would be much  better to show the public how to procure bones,   than to continue  demon-  mines wevti all fully developed, shipping  heavily, and prices of minerals good,  no one could raise a serious objection to  a reasonable tax on outputs; but when  many of them are without the means to  properly handle the properties, freights,  duties on machinery, -smelter charges,  wages and provisions are all high, and  the yalue of minerals low, it appears to  us it should be the duty of the prudent  government to enquire what they could  do to help the industry instead of lying  awake nights tD study how they can tax  them up to the brink of absolute suspension.  McAdams and his friends claim that  when before the judges he was not  given a chance to prove his charges.  He has a chance now. All he has to do  is to get up his evidence, if his charges  were true, send it to Ottawafeven now,  and secure the dismissal of the judges.  We will guarantee to raise the full cost  of his proceedings if he succeeds in his  effort.   Willhetryit?  Cook's Cotton Soot Compound  Is successfully used monthly by over  '10,000 Ladies.

Here and There.  The launch, the Irris at Halcyon Hot  Springs, run by a gasoline engine was  destroyed on the lake the other evening.  It caught fire from the gasoline, but the  four people on board were enabled to  take to the small boat attached and  escaped everything but fright. They  did hot leave the wrecked launch much  too soon, however, for it sank shortly  aftertheyleft.it, being first damaged  considerably by an explosion.  The old provincial voters' lists that  have disgraced the country for many  years by their carrying the names of  thousands of dead voters are to be  abolished root and branch on the 31st.  New ones, on new blanks, that will  shortly be available, will be made up  during September. All males 21 years  of age, British subjects ,by birth or  naturalization, who have resided six  months in the country, are eligible to  go on, and all friends of good government should see that all entitled to be  on are on. It is not enough to know  your name was on the old list as you  must make a new application to be on  the new list no matter how many times  you voted before.  The following ��������� refers . to one of the  smelters Ryan had talk last winter of  erecting here, and of whose success there  were so many doubting Thomases: On  Tuesday H. Hubble, who arrived from  San Francisco last week for the purpose,  blew in the 30 ton Vulcan smelter  belonging to the McCrossan Companies  at Ferguson. The event was watched  with much interest on account of the  doubts expressed as to the efficiency of  the Bmelter. H. N. Coursier, who  attended the ceremony, informs us that  these doubts were dispelled by the  working of the smelter, which gave a  clean slag, and appeared to do its work  thoroughly. Mr. Coursier brought back  some bullion with him. It is intended  to run the smelter continuously on  Triune ore from September 1st, and the  owners expect to install a 100 ton Vulcan  smelter shortly.���������Revelstoke Mail.  Cororior Fortin, of Slocan, held an  inquest on the death of Engineer James  Conriacber on Friday night. All the  men on, the train were summoned as  as witnesses. The verdict of the jury  relieved all employes on the road from  responsibility, but added as a rider  "that the accident might have been  averted if a patrol of the track had  been kept." No doubt one would have  been put on if it had been known the  accident was going to happen. In all  cases of bush fires and times of slides  there should be patrols on these mountain tracks, but it 16 a hard thing to  provide for incidents that may not  occur twice in a hundred years, like the  one in question.

THE MINING REVIEW���������Saturday, August 33, 1902.  Tie S011II1 African War.  The Returned Volunteers Tell Some  Very Interesting Reminiscences oi the War.  T. L. McAllister and P. E. Simpson,  the two Sandon volunteers who returned  last  week   from   South   African   war  in conversation relate some very interesting and thrilling incidents in their  experience.   They say the country that  was the seat of the war has some valleys  and level areas whore agriculture  can  be carried on quite satisfactorily when  irrigation  is employed,   but  there is a  great   scarcity    of    water    the  whole  country over,  the   streams   being few  and  many of them   too ' sluggish   for  irrigation purposes.. In topography the  country   is   very   like   the    Kooteuay,  though not quite so  mountainous  and  the hills are wholly without timber  or  even shrubbery)  and apparently never  had any, the principal vegetation being  a growth  very  much   like   our bunch  grass.   "Where horticulture is practiced  apricots,   peaches,   quinces   and  such  fruits   do   remarkably   well.     In ��������� the  elevations the principal employment of  the   inhabitants   is   ranching���������raising  sheep, cattle and horses.   Sheep thrive-  the   best,   but  cattle  and  horses  are  affected by the   myriads  of flies   and  insects created by  the bad water of the  few sluggish streams   of  the   country.  The soil too is everywhere infested with  vermin, and many of the streams   are  inhabited    by    huge    green   lizzards  and even that fancy pet, the crocodile,  'with jaws (listened to swallow a sheep  at a time..  They say.there is no doubt this war  ��������� was looked for for some time by the  politicians of the country at least if not  by the rank and file of the population,  as the military authorities had the best  guns in the world, trained generals  from France, Germany and other  countries, and engineering works-perfected on a considerable scale by able  foreign engineers. They too had a force  that could not have been less than  .100,000 men all told that could have  been made available when called upon,  as after all that were killed, removed to  other countries, &c, some 25,000 surrendered at the close ,of the war. A  couple of other points that told forcibly  in favor of the home people were that  they knew the country well, where all  the retreats and best -battle grounds  were in the whole territory. As the  guerilla warfare was practiced from  beginning to end the skilled tactics  were useless. The man who counted best  was the one most capable of enduring  fatigue, hiding when desirable and  shooting whenever.and wherever he saw  the enemy.  These two gentlemen were in two of  severest engagements of the whole war  ���������first, as Strathcona's horse, and later  as Canadian Mounted Hides. They  were first in the Belfast engagement  where they had 40,000 men, and the  enemy still more. This was the last  great engagement before Buller's return.  Our readers are, of course, all familiar  with the results of this engagement, and  we need not detail them here.  They were in Harts' river fight, one  of the bloodiest engagements of the war,  and the final one excepting one or two  skirmishes before the close of the war.  They had all told but 1300 men, 850 of  whom were   Canadians and thebalance  .ttick XQeals  Wooden and Fibre Tubs and  Pails o!

Just how   many  Boers were in the fight cannot be told,  but there were 13,000 in  the  neighborhood who could have been called upon  if desired.   The engageinentlasted from '  12.30 p.m.  until after dark  when   the,  enemy withdrew.   In killed and wound-j  ed the British lost 24men and the Boers i  over 300.   It was   in this   engagement  particularly that the  Canadians  won  their spurs and brought all thecolonials  to the front.   A few skirmishes followed  but in ten days after, the wh6le   Boer  forces surrendered.  These gentlemen regard Buller as one  of the best officers in the field with a  fair show.
