Instruction Work Biing- Pushed-Many  Bjildings Going Up���������Ming and  Farming   Facilities.  fiWork is well under'way on thc Nel-  yi & Bedlington railway, and is being  Mhed simultaneously both from the  Jternational boundary and the Kus-  puook ends. Contractor Carlson has  ready the 'right-of-way cleared from  look-^.to thc main line ofthe  ���������tow^-'Nest Pass railway, a distance  *hree miles, while Breckenridge  KVLuud are engaged on ,the same  firknear the  International bound try,  ic contractors, Messrs: Foley Bros.,  son   and   Halverson,-   have   fixed  in,Sirdar as their main distributing  art.   Sirdar was originally known as  IW Little's ranch and  then as Crcs-  Pns   Sirdar is situated about thc mid-  Lvof the construction work,' and   the  Ijiitractors have already erected there  Isree large warehouses adjoining  the  *W.P. railway station, which is itself  A the townsite.   The sawmill there,  jWed by Messrs. Byers and Bigetow  it Nelson, is  turning out 16,000 feet  l(lay, but even then cannot keep paca  [ jth the demand so great is the build-  activity.      Seven- hotels   are   in  |Urse of   erection,   and' five * general  ires are going up as wall  as  a large  Jnbcr of smaller buildings.   .  eirdar is exceptionally well situated  ^regards railw.ty connection, as both  Crow's   Nesl   Pass    railway   and  Nelson-Bedlington   railway   pass  i jfough it.   There is also a promising  ining district in the vicinity.   There  J numerous c-claims  ou G-oat uioun-  I 5a  wi.h excjilonl .iiirfiicj showings,  [|n"c of which have had a good deal o>  welopmcnt work done on them with  ^puraging results.   A trial shipment,  /n some  of these claims   is to   bo  }\1q    this  week to the Hall   Mines  , \ilter, so that a reliable estimate of  ���������Ac values may be obtained.   Sirdar  5-also a center   for   a rich   farming  ' jtrict,   fruit'-and  vegetables   being  pensively and profitably grown near  t is expected Lhat the Nelson-Bed-  rgton railway will have no difficulty  ibtaining running powers over the  \v's Nest Pass railway, as it is  ^ted on what appears to be conip-  ���������ut authority, that the plans of the  jmer line were filed at Ottawa before  /ise of the Crow's Nest road, and  it the Crow's Nest Pass line is now  Sning over the Nelson-Bedlington's  kes.  rich assays recently- made here will  again induce legitimate mining capital.  Appronos of the strike recently made  in the   Two Friends mine here,   A. E.  Teeter, one of the leasees of the Bank  of Englaiul   claim,   who   has just returned frbriiVhe'mine, reports that tlie  ledge  i������ shown now to be   fully three  feet in width, and he thinks ,that  the  foot wall has   not  been   encountered  yet.   Tlie  ore   in  the thrae feet now  driven through  lies in  three "'streaks  aggregating fully one foot of solid ore.  which   has the   appearance of   beinjr  high grade, and he  also expressed thc  belief that larger chutes exist on  the  foot   wall.     His   brother,   Mr. E. M.  Teeter, feels gratified to learn that his  judgment is confirmed 'and  has wired  his congratulation* from  hishomein  Iowa.    Mr. E. M. Teeter is  part owner  in the Howard Fraction,   thc Golden  Wedge group,   the Hoodoo, Free Gold  and severabptber valuable claims, and  has been  actively engaged   in mining  for upwards of 20 years,   but recently  removed to Iowa, taking his family to  the, old    parental   homestead   there,  thinking that the peace and quietness  of a ' pastoral life   would add  to   the  happiness of his" family  and himself.  He   lelt   all   his   business   affairs  in  British Columbia in the hands'of'his  brother, Mr. A. E. Teeter, who is also a  mining -man   of   experience   and   is  closely identified with mining in this  locality, being manager and part owner  of the first shipping mine  in this district, the Howard Fraction,   and  also  .the first   shipping mine on   Ten Mile  creek, the Kalispell.  mm fli mi cm  A Big Time Enjoyed by tne People  of the Lake City.

MORE RED TAPE IN CUSTOMS.  The  Canadian   Regulations   Are   Made  Much More Stringent.  )  Slocan City Briefs.  News was given the exporters that  owing to the action of the Canadian  government a new form of certificate  will be (required on all invoices of  merchandise sold .to importers in Canada and<exp6rted thereto, on and after  January, 1st, 1S99.  The certificate must be signed by a  partner, official or employe of thc exporter, having a knowledge of the facts  ���������sertilied to, and there must be written,  printe.l or stamped on the face or back  of the invoice the words: "This invoice  is true and correct," and where there  is a difference between any of the  l.rices shown therein and tne ordinary  credit prices at which the same articles - aro now sold bona-fide in this  country, the latter prices are shown on  the margin or elsewhere on such invoices. On and after January 1, 1899.  all invoices not bearing the above certificate will be refused by the Canadian customs authorities.  How Sandon Is Advertised,  ' ill  the  the  EMie following wont estray in  ������;il and only reached our office  J^ier day.  1 Mr. D. S. MeVennel, one of the pion-  * contractors and builders of Slocan  |y, arrived to-day from the White-  <ter Deep, and reports the mine in a  iirishing condition. Dune is one of  Kold timers   that has blazed trails  y  ���������Sault canal to Vancouver, and his  ftjarance indicates his pioneer life.  "willy Boeis and Martin Isaacson are  \ig development work on the Stand-  y Noi 5.' They have "a 20-foot open  ���������(., 12-foot shaft and 30-foot tunnel.  fe showing is favorable.

Sloan and A.York have just  .turned from'. the new strike in the  $o Friends mine, and confirm the re^  \d  in   the, Nelson Miner.     Thirty  'Xy.hes of almost clean ore is already  |sscut   and    the   end - is    not  yet  itched.     Mr. A; E. Teeter  has  re-.  liihed on the ground to to more fully  ;.4*jestigat'e the width of the ledge.   In  Aponse to the direct question to Sloan  d York, "Are you fully satisfied that  fe reports are hot exaggerated," they  id : "Not in.the least.   We are fully  sisfied that we have amine, and to-  nrrow evening Tthmk   Mr. Teeter  Ill-give  the Slocan country a still  pre agreeable surprise   We expect  .push  the work immediately."   Slo-  |a City faces present a more pleasing  -..pearance now that the fame of that  ' *q great prospecting mine  If Mrs. C. Henshawe's   book "Hypnotism" is no more reliable  than her  description of Sandon is accurate, all  we have to say is God help the readers  thereof.   .In   her description   of this  place she says the sun does not shine  on it for three moths at a time, when  every resident knows there is not more  than a month at this time of the year  when Sol cannot be seen by residents  every day.       She    says    too   there  is      but the    one      street    in    the  place, when even a drunken man could  find   two   parallel,   and several   cross  streets.   But here is a posy from her  peri: "The actual level ground in the,  valley covers an area scarcely 20feet in  width,''   when the distance  from the  K. & S. depot to the south of the C. P.  R. where the old depot stood, which is  a stretch of fairly level ground, caii-  not be much less than one-eight of a  mile.   In a short time  Sandon   will  have two ver3r well-graded streets, with  good buildings on both sides of one, at  least���������as it has to a certain extent at'  present-rand they seviral rods apart,  the vision of Mrs., Henshawe ' nevertheless to the contrary. '������������������'���������  A very unique as well as important  and interesting event took place in  Slocan City, Christmas evening. This  was a banquet known as the "'Hogan's  Alley Banquet,**'and was a free-for-all  affair���������the funds being raised by popular subscription to buy turkeys, etc.;  etc. This banquet was the outcome of  one given a year ago by several of our  prominent citizens and huniofously  called "Hogan's Alley Banquet." At  the adjournment of the festive affair  in '97, it was' unanimously resolved  that they skould annually onChristmas  hold a banquet to be.known as above  mentioned. , Pursuant to this the feast  of_'9S was p'reparod and served in the  Wilson House. The following were  present:  Dan Hanlou, A E Teeter, Nols Nelson, Thos Mirlvey, Geo Stall, Charles  Ward, Blair Carleo,-J VPurviance, F  M Purvianc-, Ralph Gillette, Harvey  Fife, Hugh Cameron, J W Kyle, James  Hossio, W H Burton, 8 O McMillan,  Jack Blench, W E Grant, D B Dnnlop,  Jos Thompson, Harry Tipoing, John  Aitchescn; Harvey' Aitclieson, A T  Stewart, R Hanover, Thos O'Reilly, D  D Robertson, Fred Clements, William  Potter.

Jack Reid, Jack  Kuimar, Wm Harris, Jack Miller, M  B Merritt, Fred Carlisle, Jos Law,-Joe  Dorau, Peter Schouberg, (Jlias Snyder,  Geo Adhnia, P.uiIHauck.'.J E Skinner,  Oscar Atsd'srion and Sam Clements.  The guests first paid attention to the  ������ood things to e>\l and then organized  for business. A. E. Teeicr whb elected  chairman, who responded with a few  words ol thanks for the honor conferred. Tho first speaker called for  Martin Marcheson, who responded in  a neat and appropriate speech, particularly calling attention to the need of  good will and harmonious action to  promote the common welfare. Mr.  Markeson expressed himself as now  being more firmly convinced than ever  thavthis is a good country and tnat at  no distant any will be tlie producer ol  millions in gold and silver. Mr. Wm.  Harris then spoke in the same tenor  and was followed by Messrs. Reid, Carlisle, Hanck, Fife, Hanlon and several  others in the same strain.  On motion a vote of thanks was  passed in favor, of Messrs. Hanck,  Adams and Stoll for their untiring  efforts, which contributed so largely  towards" making the banquet a -success; also to Mr. A. E. Teeter for providing comfortable and commodious  quarters for the banquet; also to Dan  Hanlon for his untiring and able work  in presenting our mineral exhibit in  Spokane during the Fruit Fair.  The following is a committee appointed to make arrangements for the  next annual banquet: A. E. Teeter,  Paul Hanck, H. Aiteheson ; on finance,  Paul Hanck, Martin Markeson, A. E.  Teeter.  _; (All the banqueters were feeling jub-  ileiit over recent strikes, and after  singing "God Save the Queon" and  America, dispersed with ��������� expressions  of good will and friendship.  After   Years  of Patient  Waiting  Work  Has  Been Commenced.  After three years of patient waiting  on the part of the people of East Kootenay, the Dominion authorities have  at last commence work on the perm-  anpnt'improvement of the Kootenay  river. James R. Roy, Dominion resident engineer^for the province, was in  Fort Steele a few days ago. He says  arrangements have been completed for  the immediate expenditure of an appropriation of 55,000 for the improvements between Fort Steele and AVard-  ner. The' work mainly consists of  removing the worst bars, thereby  lengthening the season of navigation.  As the C. P. R. only make out their  ore shipments four times a month, we  are unable to report this week.  Pay ore has been discovered in the  Leviathan; and now work will be  pushed on the property harder than  ever before.  It is reported that Mike Kerliii has  made a good sale to thc Ruth Co. of a  property he had just above the Ruth.  So far we are unable to get thc particulars. , ������������������ " ���������  Owing to a slight break in some part  of the tram, the Last Chance were unable to finish loading two cars, or a  much better showing would have been  made for the week by this promising  mine.  SERIOUS' SMELTER STRIKE.  A New Private School.  Annaconda Men Resort to Violence and  Injure  Several Persons.  Butte,,Mont., Dec. 26.���������The smelter  strikers at Annaconda resorted to violence last evening to prevent other  men from going to work. A man  named Mascethe was knocked down  with a club and his right eye, was destroyed. Judge Ludac and Rade Drag-  vivich were beaten, the latter seriously. 'Protection for the men who want  to work has been demanded from the  s icriff, and if he is not able to prevent  further violence the governor will be  calkd upon for the militia to preserve  order.  The situation at Anaconda is re-  gs-ri'red as .serious. Thr> strike -has  been indorsed by the Mill & Smelter  Men's Union, a number of Western  Federation miners, aud the strike may  spread. The trouble was started .four  days ago by the discharge of two men  for complaining against the amount of  their work being increased by a alight  reduction of tne force.  ���������   Mrs. Yates, for some years a teacher  in the city schools of Helena,   Montana,   has opened  a   private school in  Lloyd's building, Cody ave ,  this city.  She is taking pupils in vocal arid instrumental music,   and primary   and  advanced Eng ish.   From   her success"  here she is evidently a natural teacher,  which is fully verified by   the certificates she bears from   school superintendents, ' and other educationists   of  Helena and other places.   Her system  of teaching is especially  advatageous  to those pupils who cannot devote the  full hours of the public schools  to the  work.and desire to take up special subjects, as they can  attend classes a portion of tho day.   As Mrs. Yates is well  spoken of because of her moral worth,  her services  in her kindergarten and  other junior classes must be.exception-  ally valuable.  Ceristmas Entertainment.  PERSONAL   MENTION.  Teachers' Institute.  It is expected that Mr. R. F. Green,  M.P.P., will be in Sandon on Sunday  on his way to tho House, which opens  at Victoria oil the 5th.  Mr. C. M. Wilson returned Sunday  from Spokane, where he went tosspend  Christmas, being called back owing to  the serious illness of his assistant, Mr.  Hall.  Miss Emily Jones, who was taken  so suddenly ill with brain fever on  Wednesday, was reported last evening  as being easier. Miss Jones took a  prominent part in the Christmas entertainment. Her many friends hope  to hear of her spcedj recovery.  F. L. Christie, barrister, has gone to  the coast to marry Mis������ Hatt, a lady of  his former acquaintance from Fred-  rickton, N. B. He took Dr. Young  with him'as best man. On his return  congratulations will be ia order. Marriage has grown cohtageous with the  professional gentlemen of Sandon of  late.  The Christmas entertainment1 given ~  by the Union Sabbath School,   in the  Methodist church,   Monday  evening,  was a very successful affair, especially .  as the programme was nearly all given  by little tots.   The little ones carried  out their parts well, several  of them  showing good vocal talent in their re- '  spective solo parts   iu   the cantatas.  Although there were other attractions  for the   evening the attendance   was  good, which was only proper,  as it encourages both the scholars and officers.  The success of the entertainment was  largely due  to the untiring efforts of  Mesdames S.uiford   and Grimmett in  training tho children.

The requisition  of the Ruth Mines  Co. to have their proposed  coilcmitra-  tor exempt fr< m taxation, is diduivntly  considtn-d   by the   taxpayers,   as all-  such mutters naturally will be.   ri.-mo  say I pay  my  taxes, and every  liinn  dointr   doing  business   in   the   place  should   do tho   same.    Tluwoliailly  this is true and just; but siioh'Cunti'ii-  fiims are often unjiiht" in practice,    in  the Iirst place   (he property   they  are  likely  to occupy is now paying but a  nominal fax, end will, unless occupied  by  some such   institution, bo likely  to remain  unproductive for many a  day, so that in exempting, the council  arc not losing a revenue they now possess or one they  are likely to possess  for many a day.   Again us we said last  week,   if  they build above   the city  limits, the city will have all the an-  ' noyances   of  accumulating    concentrates, and be'powerless to check them;  thoy will derive no taxation from the  ���������'��������� institution, will have some of,,our business institution's drawn that; way; and  :   .-will be'compelled; to grade; morelengtli  ';.

After the new  council are elected, a committee of the  taxpayers ought to be appointed by  the council to. look into all these matters arid report for the council's guid-  . ance., A Board of Trade, could do this  if we had one, but in its absence the  next best step, with a view to general  -  justice, ought to be taken.  smelters can, in the name of all that is  good why do they want protection, or  any law that gives them an advantage?  If they can smelt on better terms than  thc Americans the American ore producers will'not be slow to see it, and  under reciprocity they can have equal  chance to smelt American ores with  the American institutions.  At the present B. C. ores am subjected to a 820 a sou duty entering the  Stales, and with reciprocity that would  ho removed and add ������20 a ton moro to  tho value of Sloe.an ores. This would  give a great impel us lo mining in this  country. 1( would enable all low grade  mines to work at a profit. It would  create a greater demand for miners and  properties.' It would stimulate and  give double the business to thc B. 0.  smellers if they smelted on equal  tcrn.s with the Americans, creale .1  greater demand for Crow's Nest coal  and give the country an extra start all  around. But, no, this is not tho idea  of the B. 0. smelter men and their  Iriends���������their idea is to extort the lust  pound of flesh frcm the Slocan mines,  and they want the government to turn  in and help them do it. It remains to  be seen whether or not they have got  the government's ear.  to be donp,' that piactical instructions  may be given on the spot. Rossland  and Sandon are, of course, the reasonable competitors, and, as we said in a  previous issue, to meet the circumstances, it might be held alternate  terms ������t these places.  ���������The, Victbriapapers; are advocating  the establishment of the;YProvincial,  school of mines in that city, because,  it is an; educational cen'tre.7 Yes; it  was pretty well educated when it stole,  th rough; unfair "representation; in the  House, the parliament buildings a-way  from the .main land, and at four times1  the cost to; the country; they ought, to  have been.7 A school can be: but little  use in- placer minings as but' little ,iri-  s traction iii the.art of extracting mineral dust-from; tlie sand can be given;  It is only; in'rock mining in which instruction   can be given, aridY there is  none   around Victoria.   -To establish  the school'iit Victoria -would mean the;  hauling -away ;; from' their homes,'.' at'  -long -distances;.'and   under heavy .expenses, the bulk of-, all jwho might for  many'aYday reqiiirb'instruction.; ��������� The  schoolm us t be -held.;in.

V  It looks now as if the .Crow's Nest  Coal Co. and the cities of Rossbind and  Nelson were going to make a superhuman effort to defeat ��������� reciprocity in  ores, in the, proposed treaty. The  cities referred to know that with reciprocity the smcltera at  Nelson  and  , Trail would have to accc-.pt, the rates  for smelting of the American smelters  - plus the difference in freights on ores  between the Slocan nnd, those cities  and the Slocan and the American  smelters.- YThey glibly prate about the  ability of the 13. C. smelters to give the  Slocan mine owners the same treatment they get across tlie lines, but  when it conies- to the consideration of  particulars  that will force them to af-  " ford the same treatment they hot only  funk but- kick frantically to prevent  the adoption of the compulsory nioas-  ures. The Crow's Nest Coal Company,  headed by that arch Tree Trader,  Robert Jaffray���������we beg pardon, Free  Trader in everything but coai and ores  ���������kicks as lustily as any of them, that  the ��������� coal riiining   may be built up at  ; the  sacrifice   of  silverrlead  'mining.  ��������� This is how the battle wages.

Tlie .band  realized a small sum from the one held  in Virginia hail.  Mr. G. O. Buchannan, of Kaslo, was  in the city Wednesday. He has some  fears that leciprpcity in ores will be  defeated in the present negotiations  through the other influences of the  province that would like to see things  otherwise.  If the Czar of Rusiia-is the humanitarian he would have the people believe he is, and is as anxious for peace  as he says he is, why does he not liberate the thousands of unfortunates he  is holding in worse than ordinary  slavery in Siberia ?  = Commencing next issue, The Review, in common with all other Canadian papers, will have to pay postage.  This should induce aelinqnents to  Bend in their arrears, as it is hard on  publishers to furnish readers with  papers free including postage.  A week ago the Star laid off some 65  miners retaining but about 35 around  the works. This is occasioned by the  ��������� water supply, that operates the concentrator, becoming low. This condition will remain until the snow melts  in the spring. The result goes to show  that the Star people will have to bring  their concentrator down to the city  when tbey ' can utilize all of Sandon  creek. .'������������������'.'''���������  A.lady, who for the first time saw  up on the mountain side, on Tubsday  last, ihe K. & S., rotary snow plough  driven by three engines,. making the  snow fly in clouds down the hill side,  remarked, "It is something terrible."  In corning in on Monday some machinery got disabled in tlie Lucky Jim  slide, and had to go back to Kaslo for  repairs. The train reached town a  little ahead of time on Tuesday.  An interesting sparring contest for  points, ten rounds, took place in spencer's hall on Tuesday evening last between Jerry Haley, of California, and  Percy Wilkinson, this city. From  start to finish the contest was interesting, but as we do not bo.ist of such a  thing as a boxing reporter, we are  unable to give the merits of the contestants in the several rounds. Gus  Thompson refereed the match to the  satisfaction of all, and called it a draw.  We suppose, both contestants would  call themselves middle-weights. The  attendance was quite large.  Mr. H. Cook, who has had charge of  the C.P.R.'s express business here for  the past year and also assisted the  . agent in other ways, has been promoted, and in ajfew days will leave for  Reveistoke, to enter upon his new  duties on the Arrow Lake line to Rob-  son. Mr. Cook will be missed in the  Methodist choir, in the brass band and  at the office by the general public  where he was always extremely courteous and obliging.

He gives them the option of a  light tine or a few days' confinement,  and in a few days' they are back for a  repetition. ' He has resolved on sending some of them to Nelson gaol for a  long stay.  A mechanic complained to the  editor the' other day of defective arrangements at the post office. He  goes to worklVat 7 o'clock, and could  not expect the'bflice open before that  hour. The general delivery is always  closed between 12 and 1, which is very  inconvenient for, the industrial class.  On Saturday the mail came in a little  late nnd the wicket did not open that  evening. It was closed all day Sunday,  and Monday, being a holiday, it was  open but a'short time, so he was unable to get a letter that arrived for him  on Saturday before Tuesday evening.  We are are aware lhat the government  allowance for help is very limited, and  government clerks, as well as others,  must have holidays. As the noon hour  is thc only certain time that mechanics and laborers can call for mail matter it would be a great convenience if  some arrangement could be made by  the P.M. to open tho general delivery  at say 12 45, ' Many people would be  most agreeably accommodated by such  a concession.
