 ^4^\,^^p  ��������� *  VOL. 5.���������NO. 28.  SANDON, B. 0., SATURDAY, DECEMBER 28,. 1901.  $2.00 PER YEAR.  Ith'eLoCAL- qvdgbtI  holi-  '���������    Roy Sharp is in lhe city for his  days.  ,  Oscar "White is on a visit to Spokane  , for a short time.  E. A. Cameron is making a fortune  ont of coal this winter.       ���������    ���������  School vacates for two weeks, and the  average small boy is happy.  ��������� It is nothing now but snow-to no end,  three feet in one week. There is no  fake about that.  ' ��������� ���������' You can buy tho balance of holiday  'goods at cost at. ClifFe'B bookstore. Here  is a chance in earnest.  As nearly all the miners are ont on  holidays there is little or no mining  news to report this week.  The Slocan Star paid a dividend of  $25,000 on the 20th inst. This will  gladden the hearts of some.  The Bosun shipped 1,000 tons of  galena for November. Smelter returns  for 40 tons amounted tn'$l,177.  - The Payne,concentrator will be commenced shortly after the New Year.  The material has all been shipped.  The Hon. .1: T-I. Turner has'opened  his British Columbia Agency in Salisbury house, London Wall, London,  Eng.  During last month tlie Whitewater  mine milled (J.400 tons, producing 5S8  tbn3 of concentrates. Smelter returns  amounted to $13,000. -  Mr. Chas. Culver returned a day or  two before Xmas from Laurie, where he  had been taking down the concentrator  purchased by the Payne.  Squire Lovattis circulating a petition  to the British House of Commons praying that the coronation oath may not be  changed, in that feature'that is objected  to by the Roman Catholics.  ��������� The council of Nelson are between  "the devil and the deep sea." They let  a contract for a new school building,  through the trustees, submitted a bylaw to the people to raise moneyfor the  payment of it, and the people voted it  down.  .The hockey match .between the printing fraternity and the rest of the. town,  resulted in a draw, the score being 6 to  G. A large number of people wer.p in  attendance and encouraged the players  throughout the game. The final will  be played on New Year's day.  TheK. & S. due at 11 o'clock a.m.  came in on Wednesday at 8, driven  by three engines. The C. P. R. did not  go out that day until 3 D. in. owing to  the non-arrival of tlie engine due aft 8  a. m. This has been the heaviest down  fall of snow known to the "oldest  inhabitant" in so short a time.  Whitewater Mines.  The report, of the directors of the  Whitewater Mines, Ltd,, for 1901, submitted to the meeting on the 9th inst.,  states that a profit of ������3,939 hss been  made during the "year. This amount  has been arrived1 at after charging  against the year's working- ������2,623  brought forward from previous accounts,  as well as ������3,897, which amount' represents the whole cost of the year's development work, less ������1,000 carried forward:   Inconsequence of the-miners'  strike it was  not possible  to resum-  working operations until the latter par-  of February, 1900;   the returns theree  fore shown in the accounts .are the result  of ten   months  work.   The  comt  pany's engineer reports that at the 31st  December,, 1900, tlie ore reserves  in  the mine approximated to 40,500 tons,  of an estimated gross value of over ������50,-  000.   On the 12th December last an interim dividend at the rate- of (>d. per  share was paid, which absorbed ������3,125,  thus leaving a balance of ������814 to be  carried forward.   At the end of the year  1900 the company received notice from  the American smelters, who had hitherto been the purchasers of the mine's product, that they would not renew their  contracts during the present year,  and  although the mine was in a satisfactory  condition for continuing its operations,  this   action  temporarily deprived  the  company of a market for its   produce.  Operations,  however, contiued at  the  mine and mill for the first two months  of this year, but on the first of March  r.he mill was stopped, and only development work carried on until the end of  Arpil, when the mine was practically  shut" down  pending a solution of the  smelter question.   A new contract for  the  sale  of   the.   mine's.product  was  entered into in July on more favorable  terms than   those previously existine,  and in the following month the mill restarted   and   has   continued  to   work  since that.time.   Owing to the existing  low price of silver and lead it is expected that the profit on present operations  will bo small, but it is impossible to say  what the margin of profit will be until  the result is  actually demonstrated  by.  a few miinths' work.   In the meantime  the utmost economy   in all detections,  consist   with   efficiency,   is   being   exercised and it is satisfactory to learn  from Mr. Fowler's  report that he has  been able to carry on mining operations  aft a cost considerably reduced as compared with previous periods.   Moreover,  now   that   the   Dominion   government  have granted a bonus for the purpose of  encouraging tlip establishment of silver-  lead refineries in  Canada,  and as   the  latesr advices point to the early erec-  ofa  local   refinery,   it  is   hoped  that  the company will in   a short time ob  tain better terms   for   the   sale of  product.  Christmas Time.  The Victoria Colonist is writing on  the Xmas star that appeared afc the  birth of Christ. The political star of  B. C. is one in wh'ich many of the  public have more interest. Let us have  a bar at  that:  "The birth of Christ marked the  birth of the Christian religion. The  gospel which He preached and which  His disciples faithfully recorded, has  been carried into all the corners' of  the -earth in obedience to the command: . "Go ye forth into all the  world and preach the gospel, and I will  be with you always."  That religion has had more influence  on the world than anything else.  The great message that Christmas  conveys to the world is one of peace.  Clirist in his sermon on the Mount told  his hearers that he had come not to  destroy but to fulfil. He taught that it  was blessed to be poor, that weeping  must precede joy, that the meek should  inherit the earth, that righteousness  must be sought for and mercy ever  exercised, that the peacemakers should  ho the children of God and that the  persecuted would have their reward in  heaven���������'the kingdom of heaven which  is at hand.' Christmas brings with it  the recollection of the promise that  Jesus who ascended to His Father in  heaven will come again in like manner  as the disciples saw Him 'go into  heaven.'"  Here and There.  .Some  oil   prospectors who have returned from the oil fields in the  Flathead valley repoet that they have found  oil on Sage creek, haying discovered oil.  and water coming from a spring where  the creek leaves  leaves the mountain-  Close by there was natural gas escaping  from the bedrock.   The location of the-  discovery is about six miles north ol  the Kintla Lake locations, and   in   the  Fort Steele district.

Probably the move at Kaslo has facil-  tsf.ed action on their part, as they were  nibbling at it for some time. If the  province gets two refineries it ought to'  be well provided for. - !

C, Xmas, 1901.        * '������������������''"',?- ;  The Molly Gibson mine is now looking  in excellent shape and about 600 tons of  ore is said to be on the dump' awaiting  shipment   to  the  smelter,   to   which  several consignments have already been  sent.    The   lack  of   snow   preventing  sleighing   has    interfered   with    the  transportation facilities of the mine as  it is necessary to transfer ore and  supplies tb wagons about three miles from  the lake���������and haul "it   to   the landing.  With the   advent  of   more   snow   the  shipments will   increase  ot once, arid  can be hauled direct from  the foot of  the tramway  to  the lake,  thus effecting a cansidera'ble saving in time and  handling.   Last year  about 800   tons  of ore were mined  during the season,  but   the   record    for    the    past  year  promises   to  be  raised    considerably  although the  time  in which mining  has been   carried  on   has been short.  The ore is chiefly galena or rather  a  low grade as regards lead,   but carrying good silver  values  of  about ten  ounces to the per cent of lead.   The  outlook for the mine during the coming  year  is   very  bright  and   before  long it will probably   be a large and  steady shipper.���������Nelson Miner.  Stampede to Mayo Creek.  Dawson   advices of   November  201 h  tell of a creat  stampede   that is   now  going on to Mayo creek, in theStormont  river district.   Prospectors   wondering  in thecountry late in the' summer discovered   evidences  of   several    years'  development on the Mayo, but no one  was   found,   fthe    operators    evidently  having gone out for the winter.   Cabins  well stocked with tools  and. provisions  were  found.     The  news  started   the  stampede and the creek is staked from  end to' end.   The original locators hav-  !ing. failed to record their claims will return to'find that they have-no holdings  in   the' district.   It is not known   in  Dawson how. rich the pay dirt is,   the  sole reason for the rush being the mysterious developments.  The Manitoba legislature has been  summoned to meet on January 9. This  is a good month earlier,than usual, and  it is said the reaaon is that the ministry  does not care to take the responsibility  of issuing a proclamation to bring the  prohibitory liquor law into force. The  opening caucus of the Conservative  members will decide the fate of' the law  as far as the Roblin government is concerned. In the meantime the members  of the cabinet are giving the question  serious consideration.  AtNanaimo on Tuesday the 3 year old  child of H. L. Good, of the customs department, set fire to the house by lighting a match and applying it to articles  in the bath room. The room was badly  Bcorched, but apart from the linen being charred and a hole burnt in the  roof, little other damage was done. The  child escaped unhurt. Another son between 5 and 6, saw the fire and gave the  alarm. lie rushed ont and procured  the garden hose, bringing it in to be  used in putting out the fire. Mr. Good  attached it to the kitchen water pipe  and soon extinguished tLie fiames.  The Venezuelan gunboat Resfarador,  formerly Geo. J. Gould's yacht Atlanta,  left Martinique on Tuesday night.   Her  destination is   unknown.   The  British  steamer Banngh, said to be loaded with  arms and ammunition, intended for the  adherents of Senor Matos,  fthe alleged  leader of the revolt against President  Ca,������tra of Venezuela, has arrived there  from Antwerp, which port .she   left on  November 29th.   Another alleged revolutionary vessel has been   signalled to  the eastward of this island.   There has  been fighting in Venezuela, where the  revolutionary movement is spreading.  | The engagement took place aft Villa de  Cura, about 50 miles from Caracas, and  it is' reported   that   the   revolutionary  commander, Gen. Lncano Medoa, president of the state of Caiahoho,  was defeated by the government troops.  Beavcrdell,   the   amalgamated   town  midway   between   the*Okanagan   and  Boundary centres, has a unique attraction which justifies the town's poetic  name, two   beaver   clams  within half a  mile.   The West  Fork  News   thus appeals  for   protection   to   be   extended  them:   "Somp effort should  be made  by the  townsite   people   to protect the  two  colonies  of   beaver now  working  within townsite limits.   As both these  colonies are within half a   mile   of lhe  town, and it is quite evident from the  work  done   tlie   past   six months that  they are few in number, it seems a pity  that they should be trapped or driven  away.   Jt is something that, few towns  on the continent can boast of���������a beaver  colony at   work   within   tho   townsite  limits, and   there   is   no reason why, if  left alone, there should  not be beavers  working for years within   five minutes  walk from the centre of the town.   The  one trapped the past week, was young,  and the skin worth only about $1.50."       ;  Sandon Ore Shipments.  The following are the ore shipments  from, Sandon, for the week were:  Mine. . Tons.

THE CARE OF LINEN.  l roni  Awful Picture    of   Affairs in That  . Country.  . Captain J. W. Gambler, R. N..  writes* ��������� as follows in the October  Fortnightly Review :  JOne can liken Russia's present condition* to that of a spendthrift who  continues to get credit, somehow, and  trusts,'to providence to discount.' his  bills. ' It is difficult to exaggerate,  the financial difficulties of Russia at  the present moment���������all her industries lying idle and agricultural ruin  her chronic state. 1 know of no parallel to'the 'difficulty the government  of the "Czar has recently experienced  in dispdsing of the the thousands  upon thousands of laborers and ar-  tizans thrown out of work by the  closing",'of industrial undertakings iu  every part of the empire. To an  Englishman ten, fifteen, or twenty-  trains per day, passing over one single line of railway packed with  starving* mechanics in open cattle  pens>���������fed as they go on, on black  rye bread - and water, and then  chucked, out into the street to fish  for themselves in their starving,  desolate homes, would indicate the  end of the British Empire. But this  is .the spectacle to ,be witnessed any  day in all parts of Russia���������aye ! and  worse things, too, if the horrors of  the slums of Moscow, Kief'f, St. Petersburg and fifty other* large towns  could be revealed. ��������� We are accustomed to picture the financial difficulties  of"Turkey as being  ALMOST UNBEARABLE.   ''  Those of Russia, are, I'believe, far  worse ; .' the Czar, or rather, his  master,.De Witte, the minister of finance, is compelled to find money fur  not only a vast and generally ruined '  nobility, whose fathers have spent  with Russian recklessness, the money  they received for the emancipation  of their serfs, have left their son:-  with nejther money to go on with,  nor serfs to work their estates.

Our American   cousins   are   wise   in  their  day   and   generation.    Some   of  their Senators are trying  to get a Bill  put through imposing a duty of 25 per  cent on silver in the ore.    With  such,a  measure   law   B.  C.   silver-lead    ores  could not enter the United States territory.    We   believe   in   universal   Free  Trade; but if it cannot be got���������if even  reciprocity with  the States cannot  be  got   on   an  equitable   basis���������th'eie   is  nothing for it but a reciprocity in tariffs.  With our ores shut out of the  U.S.  by a tariff there would be nothing for it  but the imposition of  heavy duties on  all  American   manufactures   of silver  and lead.   This would   lead   to   manufacturing at-home,-, and in a short time  enable Canada to compete with  the U.  S. for  a   market   for   silver  and  lead  manufactures   in   the markets   of   the  world.   In short it  is a question  if it-  would not be better for Canada to take  the initiative and  impose, such  duties  regardless of what the American Senate  may do,  A few years ago under lower duties,  the Canadian fanners were using all  American machinery; and now through  the protection of a moderate tariff,  Canadinn manufacturers are enabled to  sell in all markets of the world, not  excepting the United States themselves.  What lias been done in farm implements can be done in silver and lead  manufacture's, and Canada ought to be  up and at it.  BLOOD    HISTORY  Born in bone marrow���������dies  in. the liver.

From the standpoint oL the  buffoon this may be a subject for  ridicule and association with  anarchy; but we are given to the  belief the masses of humanity think  otherwise.  We'll send you a little to try. if you like. -  SCOTT   &- 1JOWNE,       CheniistsV Toronto.  are deprived of the ordinary support of  life.   They believe in  correcting  that  wrong through all   legitimate channels  ���������education appears to the  better side  of humanity  and  the  ballot;  and  the  Jackanapes up the gulch wants to-bring  such"sentiments into ridicule  by  associating   them with   anarchy   and   like  principles.    Socialism  says give every  man every cent he honestly earns;   but  ���������monopolies,  taking   the advantages of j  men's   misfortunes,   to   none.   It says j  make   every   man   work   a reasonable  portion of  his  time,  and  see that the |  state   proi.ects   him   in   an   honorable J  living in return.   Make sure the masses  are   educated    up    to   tlie    years    of  maturity, and that the  requirements of  The Baystreak: Charles C. Clifle.  joined the" Socialistic Club at its last  meeting.   Oh, gawd.  Blasphemy and all McAdams is a liar,  and he knows it, as Charles C. Chile  did not join the Socialistic Club or any  other club. The fact that he did attend  a meeting of that club has, however,  given the local fakir a bad dose of  nightmare, when he has to repeat his  falsehood in four paragraphs in the one  issue. In the one, in addition, either  through ignorance or malice, or both,  he classifies socialists with anarchists,  which, of course, the local club will  appreciate. The trouble with McAdams  is he is always with what he believes to  be tbedonhnant party forihe "blood" it  may bring, whether he believes in it or  not. Since the commencement of the  late labor trouble in the Slocan, he has  on the surface been head and ears the  champion of tlie miners, before their  faces, though behind their backs, be hits  been heard to call them "a pack of  damned fools." They in turn appear  to value championship of  that charac-  ter.  Ridicule the idea as he may, in sentiment, today seven eights of  the people  ��������� of this province are socialists when  the  principles   are   honestly    laid    before  them.     One-half   the   balance   is   flu:  capitalistic, and the remaining fraction  anarchists who refused in their   papers  to   refer to   the  death   of   the   Queen  Victoria, when that sad event occurred.  Genuine socialism     has  no   quarrel  with capitalists or any other class of  the community  as  such,   though they  have   strong   objections to any class .of  the community who monopolise wealth  of the earth   while   so  many  who   are  making an honest struggle for existence  Y7-H ~*^Hn*-ni^^^^r?ifvr^^i^^  "Hi  passa^ You believe that __Wf���������-i  T3^ statement. But you crMi  ~���������Wf' only realize in. part the 'rjgifc  ?������$0 obligations implied by  it. Do "you keep that temple  of the body clean? If not, the  defilement attaches to every  service of tlie temple. Disease of the stomach and other  organs of digestion and nutrition, affects the mind as well  as the body. The dull mind  stupified by poisonous passes,  enters on its service wiftiout  desire, and accomplishes it  without delight. A healthy  body and a clear mind result  from the iise of Dr. Pierce's  Golden Medical Discovery.  It removes the clogging and  poisonous impurities from the  stomach, stimulates the flow  of the juices necessary to  digestion and increases the  blood supply in quality and  quantity. The " Discovery "  is strictly a temperance medicine and contains no alcohol  or whisky, neither opium  cocaine, nor other narcotic.  " 1  had .suffered  from  indi-     j.   .   Kc.'.tion   and only   those  who   X  | have suffered from it know f  what il reallv is." writes Mrs.  M. J. I'lignn. of i6'i.i Kast Genesee Street,  Syracuse. N. V. " I had had severe attacks  of headache and dizziness with cold hands  and feet; evervUiin;,' I ate distressed me,  bowels were constipated and I was ijrowiiiff  very thin and nervous. I cannot half express the bad feelitiKS I had when I commenced taking Ur. Pierce's Golden Medical  Uiscovery. t took nine bottles of the ' Discovery.' r commenced 'feeling better with  the first bottle and kept on intprovin;.'. Now  1 am so greatly improved in health my  friends often speak of it."  If it is of any importance to lhe Blue-  streak, we may say that Mr.Clifle never  allied  himself   with    the '������������������'���������capitalistic,  class  against any other class;  aud be  never advocated anarchy or robbery. II e  has always  expressed  his  convictions  openly and   freely whether, they please  the majority or the minori ty, someth ing  McAdams  was never guiilv of doiti".  ITisideais to go with the crowd, for the  shekels'it-may bring.   When the  late  labor tiouble was on,he and other of his  anarchistic kidney were known to suggest that the  government' should  take  the '.'mines   out   of the   bands   oi   the  owners,   and   work   them   themselves.  We opposed that  because it meant robbery.    He advocated  certain wages and  and hours  wherther  the own ere  could  meet the demands or not.    As  the, law  stands this would have been a business  injustice.     ".Render unto   Caesar  the  things  that arc   Caesar's" was recommended by the wisest   man   on   earth,  and if is good today.    The  idea is   rob  no man ; but where injustice  is done to  labor in   the   management   of   public  utilities and industries, let the government purchase lhem   at 'proper valuations and   employ  men   at  what   they  are   worth   in   the   enterprises.   This  robs no man'.;' but it does   not  meet the  sentiment of the anarchist.

A reporter of the  Acadian .Recorder' who, had heard of  Mr. Cochrane's sufferings and'subsequent euro. called at his home,  when he gave an account of his experience substantially as follows:���������  "He had for many years been a constant' sufferer from asthma, accom-  I panied by an aggravated form of  The latter trouble  caused severe pains in the back and  inga  maSne,if ^ r can7what^" '^ ��������������� ���������* * Limes his suffering,  pass things would take if we once ��������� <; ^ aCllttr , *"* ������aid hf.
