 t)       I-     ,  VOL. 6���������NO. 25  SANDON, B.C., SATURDAY,' DECEMBER 6, 1902.  2.00 PER YEAR  Local News Notes.  The Payne company have leased the  steam engine of Lovatt's saw mill, and  taken it out to the siding.  The C. P. R. have pnt on a freight  traiii daily between  here and Nakusp,  which was badly needed.  ('  The Ladies' Aid of the Methodist  church gave a very pleasant social in  the parsonage on Wednesday night.  Several cars of lumber for the Payne  arrived by C. P. R. this week, which is  being tranferred to the K. & S. line for  delivery.  John L. Morgan has purchased the  half way house in the McGuigan basin  from J. W. Powers and will conduct it  in future.  An Improvised snow plough drawn by  four horses was engaged in clearing the  snow off' the sidewalks and breaking the  streets for traffic on Tuesday.  Plan to have a good time the evening  before Xmas eve. at the entertainment  and Xmas tree in the Miners' Union  hall Tuesday the 23 rd inst.  The anniversav service of  the Metho-  Col. Brayton was a prominent figure  on our streets last Tuesday.  The K. and S. rotary made' ito first  appearance this winter Monday.'  N. J. Kavanaugh paid a visit to his  family at New Denvee th'e early part of  the week.  ���������v  The Hupperton and Brochier'families  left for Spokane on Monday to make  their future homes,  - Mr. Thos. Jalland, of Jalland Bros.,  is confined to, his room the past week  from the effects of a severe cold.  Mr. John Gable was acquainted by  wire Tueasday,.with the eadintelligence  of the death of his father near Hamilton, Ontario.  There was no council meeting Mon-  da}r evening as the necessary number of  aldermen failed tr. put in an appearance  to make a quorum.  Fourteen men are ot work at the  Washington sloping and developing.  Although working on ore all the way no  shipping is being done . on account of  low prices.  G. W. Grimmett, jeweler, is offering  his   entire   stock   at a 20 per cent, dis-  Mip.T. Sharp loft Wednesday on a  few dave visit to her daughter, Mrs. N.  J. Kavanaugh, at New JK-nver.  Mrs. Davidson, Cody Avpiiuo, left the  early part of tl e week for Eastern Ontario, to visit her mother who id very ill.  There will be service in  church tomorrow at 10 in  and 7.30 in   the  evening.  Cote will officiate.  the   Catholic  the morning  Rev.

Ike Graham, formerly station agent  .at Whitewater han been appointed agent  at McGuigan in place of Geo. M. Ross,  who left Thursday to become a resident  of Edmonton.  Alex Crawford returned Wednesday  from the Oganngan valley where, he had  been attending to the pasturing of the  Sandon Forwarding Co's summer stock  of mules and horses.  '. Thos. Jones, the zinc buyer, spent a  few days in tosvn this week, looking up  contracts for ore. Although his visit is  the occasion of much comment, as to its  effect on the mining situation, many are  convinced but little,change will take  place before spring.  Lowery has been up against it lately,  and to use his own expressions he has  had a full skin, and poor mitt, a busted  bank account and a sore head. The  Claim for December must be unusually  rank to help out the losses incurred on  the green cloth not long ago.  Dr. Brouse, of New Denver, was summoned to the Payne residence on Tuesday for consultation with Dr. Power, in  attendance on Mrs. A. C. Garde. He  returned home the following morning,  and we are pleased to state that Mrs.  Garde, whose condition wa������ critical, ia  now on a fair way to recovery.  The telephone girls here have not gone  out on strike with the coast girls, as it  does not affect these parts; but there is  just, cause for the post office girls and  everybody else to kick against the mail  service furnished by the C. P. R. The  passenger train the past week has been  five or six hours late, and on Monday  did not arrive until after midnight.  f hunters for holiday presents should call  and see his fine stock. \  The clanging of stones and "scoop 'er  up" of the skips are heard nightly in the  neighborhood of the curling rink. The  curling season iein fullswingin Sandon,  and promises to be "the" sport of the  winter.  R. H. Trueman, photographer, came  in from Kaslo on Monday and left the  following day for Vancouver. Although  everything generally is pretty quiet in  the city by the lake, R. H. did' a good  business while there.  The heavy fall of snow of the past  week is unprecedented in the knowledge  of the oldest Slocanites for so early in  the season. The' snow vis so deep in  the hills that great difficulty is  experienced in moving around at the  mines,  St. Andrew's Presbyterian church  Sandon. Pastor Rev. Ed. G. Robb, M.  A. Sabbath Dec. 7th services at 11 a.  m. and 730 p. m. will be conducted by  the pastor. Sabbath school and Bible  class tit 2.30. Prayer meeting Tuesday  evening at 8 o'clock. All are cordially  invited to attend.  Commissioner Chipman last week refused the application of the Payne company for a water right in the McGuigan  basin. Mr. A. C. Garde, on behalf of  the'Payne, made the application to  se-  A.Stewart, travelling representative  of the British Columbia Mining Record  published at Victoria, was in the city  in the interests of that wellknown publication. Hetis writing a series of arti-  aclesdiscriptive of the districts through  which  he passes.  ���������  ��������� St. Andrew's day was celebrated in  Nelson by a grand ball in the opeia  house. Many greetings were flashed  across the wires and replies Pent back.  The day passed in Sandon without message or gathering of any kind, a great  change from former days.  ��������� The Ivanhoe closed for a short time  Saturday. This leave-B the Payne concentrator the only one working in the  district. The lat'er is still working two  shifts, mostly on zinc ore, which they  are turning out in latge quantities and  of good quality.  We are pleased " to see Mr. Arthur  Nichols able to be out again and con-  valeping rapidly from his recent severe  injuries. It will be remembered that  he sustained a compound fracture of one  arm and a dislocated hip while trying to  throw off a belt, several weeks ago, in  the Payne .mil I. and his rapid recovery  speaks well of the treatmenthe received  at the hospilal from the attendants.  There is nothing doing at "Whitewater  and everything is so quiet that the K. &  S. officials have closed the station at that  point until business improves. The  mines have shut down tight in that section, and the only ore shipped during  the entire month of November was 1%  tons from the Echo. This is another  example of the "unprecedented activity  of the Slocan," which the coast papers  are heralding continually.  The curlers met Monday evening and  discussed the preliminaries attending  the approaching winter's curling. C.  E. Lyons was elected secretary-treasurer  in place of A. E. Hall, who signified his  desiro to withdraw owing to his inability  to attend to the duties appertaning to  that office, and the appointment of one  additional incroaseoverlastyear's number of skips, which will be made up as*  follows, A. E. Hall, M. L. Grimmett, A.  N. J. Kavanaugh, D, J. McLaughlin,  Alex. Crawford, Dr. Gomm, W, W. Fal  Received a Time Table.  The Sandon Rink company have been-  corresponding with C. P. R. officials in  Nelson for some time to see if they  could hot get that railway to contribute  some money to the company to help to  pay the loss incurred by tbe non-arrival  of the train in time with the Cosgrove  minstrels, who played here some time  ago under the auspices of the rink company, and which caused them to go  heavily into debt by the delay entirely upsetting their plans. Numerous  letters have passed back and forth between those directly concerned in the  controversay, but little satisfaction was  obtained. A few days ago the secretary  received a package, which being rather  bulky, he figured in his mind that  probably the railway officials had at  last acceded to his plea and forwarded  a cheque for the full amount or part of  the loss at least. Imagine hia digust  on opening the sealed package to find it  only contained their latest time table  with a paragraph marked to the effect  that the railway company were not  responsible for the non-arrival of trains  on schedule time or losses incurred by  delays. In future they know what to expect from the C. P. R. when they meet  again with a like misfortune.  The shating rink will be thrown open  to all skaters tonight freeof charge.  The coal famine has ended by the arrival of a carloads of coal the past few  days.  Roy Sharp, of Nelson, will be back to  town shortly to spend his holidays with  his parents.  Messrs. John Docksteader, of Nelson,  and ET. Strickland, of New Denver, were  visitors in town yesterday.  Messrs. J. M. Harris and P. J. Hickey  who have been spending some days in  Spokane, returned to town yesterday.  Messrs. A. C. Garde, G. W. Hughes  and J. L. Retallack, were in Nelson this  week attending the meeting of the British Columbia Mining Association.  The children are preparing for the  concert and Xmas tree in the Methodist  on Christmas eve. The concert will be  similar to that given by the school children last winter, which delighted all  I who were present.  cure an additional water Biipply to fur-   lows, and Alex. McMillan.   This year's  nish more power for their concentrator,  but Mr. Chipmitn could not see his way  clear to grant the request as it was contended by Mr. Zwickey of the Ramber  mill, that the creek contained only  water sufficient for the McQuigan properties. J. G. Ryan, of the Soho, also  holds a prior right to 300 miners inches  of the creek which still holds good.  curling will be attendee! with greater  interest than any previous season and  with the increase in membershipgrenter  enthusiasm will of a consequence follow. So far Sandon has one sheet ������>f  ice resonndant to their exhileration  and by next week it is expected the  three additional sheets will be subjected  to the same treatment.  In order to have two Xmas entertainments on the same evening, the committee in charge of she Presbyterian  Sabbath School entertainment have decided to hold their3 on the evening of  Tuesday the 23rd instead of the 24th as  orfginally planned. The Miners'Union  hall has been engaged for that evening,  a splendid programme is in preparation.  Everyone is invited to send in gifts to  be hung on the tree and distributed by  Santa Glaus, and there will be a good  time for all who are present. Gifts to  be put on the tree Bhould be sent or  brought to the hall any time on Dec.  23rd.  '~J&S8&$������%������ THE MINING REVIEW���������Saturday, December 6, .1902.  The Mining Review.  SATURDAY, DECEMBER fl, 1902.  James Cronin, manager of the St. Eugene, who has just returned fi;om,a trip  to Mexieo, was in Nelson last Monday  on his way to Moyie to visit the mine-  Whilein Nelson Mr. Cronin; was interviewed by a Daily News reporter, and  expressed himself as follows on there-  vision of the tariff and its consequences  to the lead industry:  "Mr. Cronin   6aid   that he favored a  re-adjustment   of  the   Canadian taiifT  with, an   increased   duty on lead.   It  would  allow the  Canadian smelters to  give a higher price to lead producers for  lead consumed in Canada, and would be  the means of giving   employment   to a  large number   of  men iu refining and  and corroding works.    He did not think  (    any objection would   be  raised" to the  slight increase in   the   price   of lead to  ' the consumer, which would be'caused  by raising  the  duty.   The  large consumers like the C. P. R. would not kick  but some of the smaller ones might.  Some people Were against raising the  duty because they claimed that only the  ���������  smelter and railway people would benefit;   Mr. Cronin did not think it would  work out in the way suggested, but even  if it did, he would   still   be  in favor of  tariff re-adjustment along the lines indicated as a move which would  benefit  Canada and Canadians   at   the present  time.'  Mr. Cronin thought a home market for something over   12,000  tons   of  lead could be obtained , annually by the  imposition of  an   increased duty.    lie  did not favor asking the Dominion government for a direct bounty to the lead  producers and did not think it would be  given by the   existing   or by any other  government.    With reference to the St.  Eugene mine Mr. Cronin said it would  remain idle until there was some change  for the better in  the  silver-lead   situation."  The St. Eugene is the largest lead producer in. the province, and the above  expression of opinion coming from its  manager, ought to carry weight.   There  is some difference of opinion among the  mine managers on the question of tariff  revision oiilead, but it is gratifying to  note the great majority of the producers  favor a higher duty on  the product.   It  is a cause of much satisfaction to see the  producers, smeltermen aud manufacturers   working  in  harmony to secure  what they consider the best means to  all concerned and the country at large,  and the intense feeling existing throughout the Dominion in  favDrof  a protective tariff is certain to make . itself felt  at the next session of the Federal parliament,  when   the  question   will   be  brought before the House and we are  confident a  higher  duty  will be  the  outcome of the debate.  SOUND AS  A  DOLLAR  That is the resultof a course  of treatment with Scott's Emulsion. We have special reference to persons with weak  lungs and sensitive throats.  Scott's Emulsion docs some  things better than others. This  is one of them.. It has a peculiar action on the throat and  lungs which., gives them  strength and makes them tough.

SPRAGUE.  v  ���������'���������K- THE MINING REVIEW���������Satto>ay, December 6, 1902.  Tlie Mining Review.  SATURDAY, DECEMBER 6, 1902.  American cattle from the New England states and parts of Canada are  prohibited from entering England on  account, it is asserted, of an*6utbreak  of disease. Tlie embargo is keenly felt  by large shippers in America, who have  large stocks on hand aud fear a glutted  market, while in England a meat famine is predicted and a rise in the price  of beef anticipated.  The Canadian Pacific arid Grand Trunk  railways, the two largest systems in  Canada, intend to increase their rates  shortly. This decision on their part  is the cause of much surprise, coming as  it does bo soon after their flattering receipts and brighter prostecta for trade  in new channels. If the C. P/R. increase their rates in this country, they  may as well take the, freight itself for  payment as there will be verylittle profit for the consignee when their charges  are paid.  Dennis Murphy, the member for West  Yale, who accepted a seat in the Prior  cabinet  last week,   has   tendered   his  resignation and intends to abandon politics altogether.   His decision wasgiven  after a hurried tour of his constituency,  and the reason given ontia that by accepting the cabinet position he would  iiave to.support Premier Prior's railway  policy in regard to the Canadian Northern, which the Cariboo stage line people  claim would kill.Ashcroft, consequently  the old stagerB there would vote against  him;     By accepting   the portfolio  of  Minister of Education, Mr. Murphy to  retain his seat in the legislature would  have to appeal to hia constituents, and  has  decided   to withdraw from'public  life for a while sooner than conduct an  . uncompromising campaign. This leaves  the seat for West Yale vacant,and doubtless some time will elapse before a writ  is   issued   to  fill   it.   This  action   on  Mr. Murphy's part affects the new government very little; W.W. B. Mclnnea,  president of the council, has been sworn  in as secretary and Minister of Education, and is now canvassing bis constituency of Nanaimo  in  the event of an  opposition candidate being brought forward at the nomination  on  Dec. 11th.  It  is  expected    that    no    opposition  will be offered and the the new minister  will  bo returned by acclamation.   In  any event hia election is certain.   This  makes the new ministry complete and  they are  convinced   of a good working  majority when the House meets.   The  , yacant constituencies of North Nanaimo  sand North Victoria, it is thought will be  opened at once, and the result may materially help the government.  ie- difference^ 1ft  cost betwe^'nlan al^-m  baking powder atojd  the highest-class  cream of- tartar baking powder would not  amount for a family's  supply to one dollar  a year.

It is expected the  new institution will bo ready for business next spring. Howell, Mathers &  Howell have been appointed solicitors  for the promoter?. J. F. McLaughlin,  of Toronto, is promoting the enterprise.  Word conies from Toronto that the  proposed advance in freight rates by tha  Canadian Pacific and Grand Trunk railway companies has been declared off for  the present. Hugh Blain, chairman of  the transportation committee of the  Toronto board of trade, has been i:i communication with railways, and he understands on good authority that it is  not the intention of tbe railway companies to make a general advance. Tlie  strong protest of the public and press  convinced the railways it would ha  better to abandon the design.  Members of the E. C. Lumber and  Shingle Manufacturers' Asiociati-m  which compriees nearly every mill on  the coast, have decided to advance tin-  price of shinnies 10 cents per thousand  on April 1st next. The price of lumber  was advanced at the beginning of Lhe  of last month and no further advance  has been made. The reason given out  for the advance is that logs have gone  up some 40 per cent, in price, wages 25  per cent., while insurance rates on mills  have been largely increased.  The owners of the Providence mine,  situated near Greenwood, have received  $2,889.34, being the net proceeds nf one  car of ore containg 40,920 pounds, gross,"  shipped to the Trail smelter recently.  This will give a value a trifle more than  $141 per ton. Several customary reductions were made together with charges,  amounting to about $25.per ton, so that  the gross value of the ore was a  little above $166 per ton, This is considerably better than the car-load shipped earlier in the month, which showed  a gross value of only about $100 per ton.  Another car-load is going forward, and  being sorted ore, it is expected to return  even higher values than (he last shipment.  The Delphine, near Wiimer, East  Kootfiiay, owned by 11. C. Plainmond,  of Toronto, and P. A. KinipUm, of Windermere, has been leas-c-d to Messers.  Michelson and Andcieon, who will work  the property all winter. Some 65 tons  of high grade ore was bronglii downfrom  the mine last winter and shipped to the  Binelter. A previous shipment of 36  tons netted over $3,500.

Michael Strike Has Been Settled.  * The cjal miners' strike at Michel is  called off and the men have gone back  to work. A. settlement was e flee ted  with Manager Tonkin'tli'at proves satisfactory to all concerned, and it is to be  hoped now tliat'thatHliere will be no  further trouble.' Not only were the men  at Michel satisfied, but the other miners  in the district seem disposed to accept  'the situation in'an amicable .manner.  The adjustment of the existing differences wilt bring abouta'satisfactory condition at 'Morrissey, Coal Creek and  Michel, and it is devoutly wished by all  in the valley tliatt there will not be a  recurrence of the strike trouble.  Every effort is being made to increase  the force at the Morrissey mine, and as  a result men are coming in from different mining sections. Last week US came  in from the State of W-ishiugt jii and 26  from Vancouver Island. It is understood that 50 men with their families  are on the way to Morrissey from Nova  Scotia. This increase of the force at  Morrissey mine is made necessary by  the great demand for the product. Arrangements ate being made to very  largely increase the output, and the  force of men here will be added co as  rapidly as they can bo put to work, and  in all probability by early spring there  will be GOO to'SOOmen employed.���������Crati-  brook Herald.

THE MINING RKVIEW���������Saturday, December 6,  1902.  Mine Owners in session.  The annual meeting of the British Columbia Mining association was held last  evening at the oflice of the London # B.  C. Goldfields.   The principal   business  to come before the meeting was tho election of officers   for   the   ensuing  year.  Those elected were:    President,   S,   S.  Fowler; first vice president, J. H. Tonkin ", second vice-president, Le-lic Hill ���������  secretary, E. B. Kirby ; treasurer, J.  J.  Campbell; executive committee,   ir. Ii.

An amendment was made to the bylaws to permit of further extension of  the membership roll.  At the meeting the smelting interests  were represented by W"! H. Aldridge,  superintendent of the Canadian Smelting Works at Trail, and .1. J. Campbell,  of the Hall Mines smelter, Nelson.  None of the Boundary smelters were  represented.  It had been generally believed that the  object of the meetina \va������ to bring the  smelting and mining interests into harmony in the matter of remedial legislation to be] asked at Ottawa. The  president of the association, Mr. Fowle^  stated, however, that nothing'of this  sort had come up, and the meeting was  devoted to matters of routine only.  G. 0. Buchanan and Bruce White,  who were appointed delegates from the  Nelson board of trade, will prebably  interview the mineownerson this point  today. From unofficial sources it is reported that the mineowners and smelter-  men have concluded that the principal  diflicully to be solved is that relating to  railway freight rates, as this bears* on  both sides.���������Nelson News.
