 t i-'Ly  VOL. 6.���������NO. ro..  11  SANDON, B. C, SATURDAY, AUGUST~23r'1902.  $2.00 PER YEAR.  Town Jottings.  Jack Thompson and his bride arrived  home on Wednesday evening.  Mrs. W. W. Warner and a few friends  are camping out at Silverton.  The Whitewater mine, Whitewater,  shipped 21 tons of ore for the week.  The Miners' Union and the K. of P.  are to have a game of ball at Slocan on  Monday.  D. J. McLachlan is finishing up his  contract on the drill hall at. Kaslo  this week.  E. A. Cameron is transhipping two  cars of coal from the C. P. R. for the  Payne today.  The Sabbath school children had a  pleasant time picnicing at Silverton on  Saturday last.  Sandon is to have another bank. The  school children are the promoters of the  new enterprise.  Mrs. Geo. Ransom have returned from  New Denver to take up their residence  in the city again.  Mr. O'Neil is going to work the Chicago mine. We says they have ore in  several workings.  It is said 'Our Bob and Tam,  are now waiting for the government to  act in municipal matters.  W. H. Yawkey is in the city  looking over matters at the Ivanhoe.  He will remain'a few days.  Tracy Holland is over in Spokane trying to extradite W. C. Morris, a high-  muck-a-muck of the hot air line;    .  Coast-Kootenay Railways.  Monday   next, ' September    1st,J   is  Laboorday.  On Monday   an excursion train will  leave for Slocan at 7:80.   In the return      Report comes from Grand Forks that  trip it will leave Slocan  at 8 o'clock'.  James H.

Whether or not they will visit Sandon,  Mines and Mining.  Andy Grierson, "Rusty" Crawford,  the Pound family and others went Tuesday for a week's outing to Bear Lake.  The government broke their hearts in  giving $100 to fix up the Reco trail this  year, and now it-is in first class condition.  Even the cold metal has. refused  McAdams' justification of contempt any  longer, as his press broke down last  week.  James Dunsmuir is in trouble again.  This time it is over a timber interest.  ���������'Uneasy lies the head that wears the  crown."  . J. Stubbs had oneof his hands badly  smashed coupling cars at Three Forks.  Three fingers were amputated laBt Sunday as a result.  It is understood Mr. .Wintois, at one  time in the Bank of B. N. A. here, is to  receive the appointment of manager at  their Kaslo branch.  A. R. Fingland, of the Monitor mine,  has bought the Balmoral hotel property,  this city, at a sheriff's sale. The price  paid was about $2,000.  we do not yet know.  Mrs. P. J. Hickey and family, who  have been spending some weeks at the  [vanhoe residence, will return to Spokane in a week's timo to allow the  children to attend school.  There is a row on between the mines  of the Western States and the Smelter  Trust. There's an old saying which reads,  "When rogues fall out honest men get  their due." This row may be of some  service to the silver-lead producers of  British Columbia.  B. C. Riblet, of Nelson, has secured  the contract to put in a tramway at the  Silver Cup mine, near Ferguson. The  tramway will be about a mile and a  quarter in length and will extend across  a hasin to the head of the wagon load  leading to Ferguson. Work is to be  commenced at once.  In the special union services which  begin August 31st, Rev. McColl, of New  Denver, will preach in the Methodist  church at 11 a. in. and Presbyterian  church at 7:30. Rev. A. J. Seymour, ol  Slocan City, wi.ll preach, in Crawford's  hall at 11 a. m. and the Methodist  church at 7:30 p. in., tomorrow.  What will the winter be in and  around Sandon? There are probably  40 mines in and around Sandon that  have from 2 to 75 men working in  cleaning up old stopes, developing and  mining. High expenses and lowprices  of minerals are, of course, operating  adversley; but there may be considerable stir for all that.  The Rev. Mr. Robb has been attending a Presbytery meeting at Grand  Forks the past week. It came out in  the evidence at that meeting that more  children attend the Sunday schools  than do the public schools. This no  doubt is the result of allowing children  under five years of age.  This summer is unprecedented by  stormy weather. Wednesday Sandon  wa9again visited by another severe wind  Btorm, accompanied by snow and sleet  doing the usual amount of damage���������uprooting trees and delaying traffic. Several trees were thrown across the flume  damaging to such an extent as to cut  off the city's supply for a few hours.  With the disappearance of the storm  the mountain tops were left mantled  with snow, suggesting the approach of  winter.  to make a reconnissance of the .proposed Coast-Kootenay railway, extending from Midway, to tide water near  Vancouver, a.distance of about 300  miles. They will cover most of the distance on foot, and on horsebtick, and  will seek a pass across the Hope mountains, via a tributary of the Skagit river,  at a point immediately north of the international boundary. On reaching the  coast, engineers will begin the location  surveys, and it is understood that construction work will be started late in  the fall at both ends of the projected  road. A link will also have to he built  from Curlew, Washington, to Midway,  a distance of 12 miles. The GreatNorth-  ern is credited with the intention of  building a branch line extending fiom  the Okanagan river at the boundary line  south through the Okanagan valley, to  the main line at Wenatchee on the  Columbia river. Mr. Lupfer was the  locating engineer for the'main line. Mr.  Kennedy will shortly transfer his head  quarters to New Westminster.  A Smelter for Kaslo.  It looks now as if Kaslo was going to  have a smelter. If built it would be a  great service to this part of the country.  It is said the Byron N. White Co. are  looking over the ground and are ready  to go on with the construction of one if  suitable arrangements can be made. If  is also said Minneapolis parties are  giving the matter much consideration.  We sincerely hope one of the propositions will materialise. We would, of  course, prefer to see one built at Sandon; but those who put their money  into such an enterprise, of course, know  best what they are doing.  Hotel Reco Arrivals.

The Bosen shipped a couple of cars of  zinc ore this week.  Some little work was done on the  Kaslo group the past month.  The Ruth No. 2 group will be developed for the next three months.  Assessment work is being done on the  Revelstoke property near Three Forks.  From McGuigan the Rambler sent  out 12G tons for the week; Antoine, 20.  Total 146 tons.  The Diamond and Orient Fractions,  near the Ruth, were surveyed Monday  for crown grants.  The Montezmna, Mexico, Vera Cruz  and Bunea Vista mineral claims on the  south fork of Kaslo creek are to be sold  under mortgage.  It is reported the Rambler concentrator has shut down for a short time to  allow some repairs to be made.  The Payne Company are acquiring  ground below their mill, as it is found  to be necessary for the refuse from the  grinding institution.  There are 15 men at work at the  Ivanhoe and the force may be increased  in a few days. They are taking out a  lot of ore; but prices are so low there is  no inducement to ship.  F. P. O'Neil reports a small strike  was made last Saturday at the Chicago  No. 2. One of his men encountered six  inches of carbonate ore in one of the  tunnels 65 feet from the surface, after  working 15 feet on the vein.       *������������������' '  The following is a list of the number  of men working at each mine around  Sandon: , Payne, 60; American Boy, 30 ;'  Ruth, 40; Slocan Star,25; Last Chance,.  20; Sunset, 16; Noble Five; '12; Trade  Dollar, 10; Ivanhoe, 10; Mountain Con,  4; Chicago No. 2, 4; Wonderful, 4.  Mr. P. V. Molson, who is now examining the Mountain Con, says the report of a valuable strike on that property that got into the papers last week,  is not at all correct. A small amount  of ore is in the workings, but nothing to  warrant the exaggerated report that  got into the papers.  Sandon Ore Shipments.

Listen to the genuine labor agitator,  Mr. Debs included, and the strength of  his speech is directed  to an  exposure,  often grossly exaggerated,  of the conditions   of   labor   in   over crowded communities,   and   then an appeal to the  feelings of the audience  present.   Corner the man on the unfairness' of such  an   appeal   in   this   country,   and   his  answer is,   "If  we do not take timely  precaution  tho condition   of things in  the country to which I  have referred  will prevail here."    That  capital   lias  labor by the throat in many of the old  countries   no   one   can   deny.     It   is  equally probable that it   precaution be  not taken, the same tiling may  eventually prevail in this country ; but as it is  not possible in the next 50 years,  there  is no necessity for stifling devevlopnient  now by taking capital by the throat for  a precaution that will not be necessary  in the life of the  present  generation.  There is no sense iu chasing the ghost  now of a possible substance to appear  50 years hence.   This province is large  BLOOD    HISTORY  Born in bone marrow���������dies  in the liver. This is the beginning and the end of the rich,  red blood that keeps us all  alive. Blood history makes a  fascinating story.  Scott's Emulsion often plays  a most important part in blood  history. At the very beginning  ���������that is where its influence  is greatest.  Scott's Emulsion is a blood  food���������a rich material for making new blood. Nothing better  for bringing color to pale  faces.  the hayseed who left the prairies a few  weeks before,saloon keepers,carpenters,  city clerks, &c, can all become union  men and demand the scale of wages  paid, and the mine managers arc a lot  oi rascals if they do not pay it. By  insisting on proper qualifications for the  miner the same as are exacted in other  walks of life, the number of available  men is reduced, and flic heller are the  chances of the competent, legitimate  miner. Supply and demand regulate  the whole industrial world, and they  govern in mining as well. The less the  supply the keener is the damand, the  knowledge of which ought to be of  much service even to Miners' unions.  lieve this  is   sound  common   sense at  least.  We'll send you a little to try, it you like.  SCOTT   &   liOWNE,       Chemists.  Toronto.  QUALIFY MINERS.  Il tho Miners' unions of British Columbia would insist upon a proper  qualification for miners the same as tho  unions at the coal mines of the United  States do, it would go a long way  towards overcoming soine of their disabilities in this country. It would even  do   more���������it   would   assure   tiie   mine  AMERICA.  A nurnberofour exchanges object to the  United Slates people monopolising the  word "Americans," an the Lsquimosare  as much ent it led lo it ns any other people  on tin'. American continent. In the first  place, the continent .should ntver have  been called America, itlihough Ameiigo  Vespucci,  the Florentine, .who.was' the  Thai brilliant luminary, the Phoenix  Pioneer, is actually educating Col.  Prior on the force of the two percent  tax.   Just hear him a minute, will you?  "But for one mine to pay the equivalent of one per cunt on the net output  and another lo pay 15 or 20 per cent is  certainly not equitable."  Now, for the "output," what tho  Pioneer man 'actually means is "net  profits." The two per cent tax is on the  output, but when figured out to Col.  Prior, it means two per cent on the  profit of some mines and as high as 20  per cent of the profits of some of the  low grade mines of the Boundary. Bio.

With the country fully  explored and  the mines  that, may   be  discovered in operation,  the manufactories   running converting the  metals'  found in these mines into manufactures  for Canadian consumption  and export  our   agricultural,   horticultural,    dairy  and  lumber resources in  operation, to  supply these latter in return, our population could not be short of six millions.  All this would call for an immense importation of foreign capita], an importation]  that   must   come   if   the   anticipation  is ever to be  realised.   To  the   careful  reasoneritis apparent that even in rapid  development "air this   cannot  be done  in the present generation,   and until it  is   fully   accomplished   capital   cannot  possibly crowd labor.   If the capitalist  does not want to pay the miner what he  thinks he ought to have,  with so  many  avenues for engagement,  he can readily  get -employment in  any of   the  other  industries in growth  in   the  country,  and so on of the laborer in  any walk.of  life.   It   is   only   when   a   country   is  fully developed thatcapilal can take tho  advantage of  labor.     Until then, while  capital is seeking for investment,  it is  always   at   the   mercy   of   labor.    The  main question now for British  Columbians, labor unions included, is the best  method of securing the necessary capital  to bring about this provincial   advancement,  employing labor by the way.   It  can never.be got by keeping alive labor  agitations,  presenting the pistol to the  head   of  capital   whenever   it puts in  an appearance.  can join the unions down in Pennsylvania and other coal districts of the  United States until he has been two  years   a coal  miner.

There is not the slightest cause for  fear or anxiety at this period if Dr.  Pierce's Favorite Prescription is used.  It gives health of body and cheerfulness  of mind, and by its aid the pains and  pangs of this critical period are prevented or cured.  Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription is  woman's .medicine with a wonderful  record of cures of womanly diseases.  Diseases that all other medicines had  failed to cure, have been perfectly and  permanently cured by the use of "Favorite Prescription."  "I feel it my duty to write you as I have  received so much benefit from the use of y������ur  medicine," says Mrs. J.izzie A. Bowman, of New  Matamoras, Washington Co., Ohio. "I have  taken four bottles of 'Favorite Prescription ' for  female weakness and change of life. Before I  began taking it I could not do anything. I had  such pains in my head and in the backofmy neck  that I thought I would lose my mind. Now I can  work.every day.

TIOKE  TO ALL POINTS  VIA  S  Several of our exchanges declare  the  two per cent tax'should be borne by the  mines, and that it is  insignificant anyway.    Everyone   knows;   these   prints  included, that mining is not progressing  as it should, and there is a cause for the  lack of advancement.   The two per cent  tax many be insignificant, but it is none  the less an item;   but there are others  truly.   The eight hour law, though here  lo stay, cuts   off  from value at least  10  per cent,  then there is the two per cent  tax, 25 per cent average duly on all mining machinery, 10 per cent extra on all  supplies to boarding houses, say  10 per  cent extra on   freight   and   treatment  charges and $1.40. for  lead        against  $3.50 paid by the trust to the Americans  producers.

It is a fact that true pyritic smelting  has not yet been entirely accomplished  (by true pyritic smelting is meant the  fusion of sulphide ores without the aid  of other  fuel   than   the  sulphur contained in the  ore itself),  still  runs   24  hours at a time have been made,  without any outside fuel, but slight irregularities compel a blowout,  and   so  partial pyritic smelting,   or  the addition  of some coke to the charge is used at  present.     Langs defines matte smelting as:   "The   smelting  of  ores  composed of, containing or giving rise  to  sulphides, for the purpose of collecting  their values in a less  quantity of artificial   sulphides."    Pyriting  smelting,  then, is simply a division  under matte  smelting  in    that   the    wasting    and  smelting operations aro carried on   at  the same   time   in   the same  furnace.  The advantages to be gained  by pyritic smelting are enormous,  and  if  the  true process   can   be   developed there  will be no further fuel bills.   As it   is,  they  are   reduced    more    than   half.  There is no   time   wasted,   nor skilled  labor required,   in   roasting,   and   the  extra  expense  of building   a  roasting  plant, just for the purpose of destroying the fuel which   natured   stored   in  the  ore   is   avoided.     The   process   is I  not applicable  to  high  lead and silver  ores  as   the   lead   will   volatilize   and  carry oil values with it, nor   is it   possible to work oxidized ores in this way.  Being in itself an oxidizing  process  it  is of use only for  the  fusion  of   sulphides, as an oxide ore  has in  it nothing  of a calorfio   nature,   This   is   why   it  has not  found  lavor   with   the highly  silicious  anil   oxidied   ores of Cripple  Creek and not because  the process has  proven a failure on ore that  are suited  for such   treatment.��������� Denver Reporter.  Labor Day at Slocan City.  The biggest labor demonstration yet  1 seen in the Kootenay will be held in  Slocan City on September 1st, in which  the labor organizations of Sandon, New  Denver, Silverton, Slocan City, Nelson  and Iiossland will participate. Rossland people are the movers in the  scheme, promising an attendance o.  300. There will be a big parade, headed  by two bands, after which will be held  aquatic and general sports, lor'se racing and bicycle racing.

McGuigan Basin Mines.
Mostof ,tho mines and a-large number
of promising properties and prospects
in McGuigan basin are being worked;
development being the chief aim of the
owners. The shipments would be largely increased if the puices of silver and
lead advanced;' however, mining is
forging ahead as well as can be expected.
The Antoine has a fine showing of
ore, which is 22 inches across. Some
stoping has been done and a shipment
of 20 tons of ore was sent out recently.
Some three weeks ago the Washington made a rich strike. A contract had
been let for 400 feet of tunnelling. The
Slocan Boy, the adjoining property, is
also working and shipping. Both properties are under the management of
John L. Retallack and arc being worked in conj unction.
The Dardanelles in opening up a new
tunnel below the old workings struck
a surface showing of IS inches of ore.
Some ore has been taken out of the old
workings for shipment. The staff of
men will be increased.
Chapman Bros., who have a bond on
the R. E. Leo, shipped 20 tons of ore
to the smelter recently. This property
has been under development for some
time. There are six men- on the
The Soho have settled their difficulty
with the men, and arc going ahead with
extensive development work already
mapped out by the new management.
In the shaft there is one foot of solid
ore in width and which will likely be
continued in new workings below, a
new tunnel to be driven at once, and
when completed will be one of the
longest tunnels In the Slocan. This
-tunnel - will tap leads of other' mines
running acros the property.
The Rambler-Cariboo is working with
a pay roll of about 100 men. This mine is
the heaviest and steadiest shipper in
the basin. /
The Northern Belle is underlease with
a small force. >. Considerable work had
been done on. this property years ago,
and at that time did some shipping.
The Sunset is another active working
little mine that has come to the front,
and ships occasionally, besides paying
steady dividends.
The Surprise and lied Fox are being
developed on a small scale.
The Echo and Best properties are
likely to be opened up again.
The following mines have have made

The   City 'of  Rossland  on   Monday  came very near expcrincing what Sandon went through on  the  4th  of May  two years ago,  an  entire clean ouL b\'  fire.   As it was the  destruction   was  great,  some 15 business places and over  30 residences being in the ruins, entailing a loss of about .$100,000.   The fire  caught in  P. Rums & Co.'s place about  3 p. in., and in a very short time it was  beyond control for the time.   The shifting of the wind and the almost Herculean efforts of the   Trail and  local fire  brigades got the flames under control  in two hours and prevented the complete . (  destruction   of   the   city.   Fortunately  ]'[[}]������  $J    JSVCI'V'  DCSCTl  no lives were lost. '  Quick T^eals  Wooden and Filire Ms  Strike in St. Eugene.  An important strike was made in the  St. Eugene-mine last week, when  between eight and nine feet of solid ore  was struck about 600 feet in  from the  100 foot level of the shaft on the  Lake  Shore claim.   This  is  on   a cross lead  between  what is known as; the south  vein and the main   lead.   All   the   development   work   done from  this lead  goes to prove that the enormous bodies  of ore encountered in the No. 1   workings maintain   their   size   as   they   go  down, and   in   one   place   the  ore lias  reached the width of 33 feet.  Take it all in all it is doubtful if there  is a better developed or better equipped  mine in Canada than theSt.Eugene, and  so far as silver-lead mines are concerned  perhaps   there   are   no   better  on the  American continent.   There is enough  , ore blocked  out to keep the -mill riming steadily  for the next eight or ten  years, and   the machinery and equipment for operating is equal to the best  in the country.���������Moyie Leader,  Glotte Wringers  Clothes Pins, Sad Irons,  Brushes,' Etc.
