 VOL. 5.���������NO. 35.  SANDON, B. C, SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 15, 1902.  $2.00 PER YEAR.  Town Jottings.  The census returns give Sandon a pop-  . illation of 551.  Snowslides will eoon be in order if  this weather continues.  R. F. Green was in the city over Sunday, on his way to parliament.  Kaslo and Sandon' are to play the  return match here this evening.  F. Bradley, formerly of Sandon, died  at the Nelson hospital on Monday.  R. H."Trueman, photographer, will be  at Sandon studio from February 15th. to  March 3rd.  . G. W. Hughes went to Kaslo Thursday, and H. Giegerich, of Kaslo, was  here the sameday.  The Rossland Juniors havebeaien the  Nelson Junior hockeyists twice in succession. They don't want to come here  for the third licking.  Thos. Pollock, manager for the Win.  Hunter Co. at Alamo, underwent an  operation at the Nelson hospital the  other day, and is now recovering.  The editor received a very kind note  from the Rev. J. A. Ferguson, now at  Eversh-y, Ont., this week, enclosing a  subscription to the Mining Review.  The Rev. S. J. Thompson, of Kaslo,  will  preach .in   the  Methodist church  ���������"���������.*next"*Sunday-u-iorning'-:.and':niglrt;;-and  the Rev. J. S. Pye will preach for Mr.  "Thompson in Kaslo, 7;  Mr. H. VV. Harbor, who has beenthe  very popular C. P. R. agent here for  some time, goes to'Rossland on Monday  next. A young man from Trail is to  take his place here.  The C.P.R. is goingto spend $22,000,-  000 improving the system.  Lawyer Thompson went to Nelson the  other day to attend the supreme court.  Andrew Carnegie is giving a $7,000  library to Grand Forks. He will soon  hear from Sandon.  Premier Ross is going to submit the  Manitoba Prohibition Act to the electors of Ontario June next.  Miss Funk, who resided here for some  time, was married on Tuesday last at  Nelson, to Wm. Lee, of Slocan City.  Nick Ferris has been transferred from  the bank at Greenwood to the branch at  Vancouver. That will be a change from  Sandon.  It is the general opinion theDunsmuir  government will be defeated the present session, and what then? He has a  perfect right to demand a dissolution if  he wpnts to.  The Nelson hockeyists had agreed to  contest the ice with Sandonites here;  but they repented fearing the consequences, and wired they could not come.  Manager Alexander of the Ruth is not  expected back for two" months yet,  which means the mine will not start till  then at any rate. There are six men at  work on the property, and the showings  are said to be most satisfactory.  . The.Cosgrove Merrymakers Twill -aDr:  pear-here' agal^  seven pieces in addition to their troupe,'  which will also be increased, sometime  in March. '.They, will give an entertain-^  ment of their own and furnish music for  a grand ball under the. auspices.of the  Sandon Rink Co.  The Boundan? smelters have secured  a reduction of 50 cents a ton in freight  -   The many friends of Mr. David Heap  will  regret   to  learn   that he is not re- j on coke from the C. P.

This will mean a sav-  ment, and he has been confined to his  bed for a long time. 7 *  Some parties are -.protesting the election of Mayor-elect Bradshaw of Slocan,  on the ground that he does not hold the  necessary property qualifications, for  that position. The case will be heard  in Nelson this week.  Some of the council say the differences  between the Sandon Water and Light  Co. and J..M. Harris and ' the council  are. so wide they cannot be settled. Give  and take will be much better than litigation.  We call attention to the advertisement  of the Filbert Cafe in another column.  Geo. Aspen, late chef at the Reco, has  taken over the management. Pie is a  caterer of renown, a pastmaster of the  culinary art, and tickles the palate of  all hia customers. Eat at the Filbert  and you'll grow fat.  The Cosgrove Merrymakers played  here,to a full house on Monday evening.  The entire programme was greeted with  applause and the entertainment was first  class. Their chief musician would pass  well amongst the first in the country'.  There is really no weak feature in their  entertainment from commencement to  finish���������every number is entertaining,  and nothing in it to offend the most  particular. Every one attending their  entertainments must be satisfied they  get value for their money.  ing of 16 per  cent   all   around   to   the  smelters.  -The-V- V.*& E. will not build into  Phoenix on account of opposition of the  C. P. R. backed by the provincial government. It has also abandoned the  spur to 'the Gran by smelter for the  present.   Dissatisfaction is the cause.  The Nelson Miner of Tuesday says:���������  "Yesterday in chambers an application  was made in the case of the Star Mining  and Milling Co., by S. S. Taylor for an  order of discovery of documents on affidavit. VV. A. Macdonald opposed. Application granted,"  Some of the school trustees do not  hesitate to say that in dispensing with  the servicesof MissDalhy.'they only carried out work cut and dried for them by  the council. We much fear they will  find this work will be the means of ruin-1  ing the school in Sandon, and what  then?' There is general regret in the  city that Miss Dalby was not retained  in the school.  The C. P. R. are to the front in good  time time this year with cheap tickets  to the Rossland carnival. As they announce in another column, on the 21st  they will issue excursion tickets to Rossland and return at a single fare. The  tickets will be good for four day? This  wHl give all a chance to see thewhita  elephant at Rossland at a very low  figure, and enjoy an outing besides.  Frank Con, a German Jew miner, was  killed at Frank last week by a cavein in  the mine.  Tlie Big Turk wrestler who was here  several months ago, was flopped by an  old farmer in Montana'a few days ago.  If it is any satisfaction to the public  a New York jury has decided that J.A.  Shatter, sub-contractor; J. Matheson,  engineer, and M. Epps, who had charge  of the powder, are responsible for the  deaths of J. Roderick Robertson and  others who were killed in the explosion  in that city.  It is said a syndicate of ranchers near  Calgary will shortly open meat markets  in every cown in the Kootenays, in opposition to.P: Burns & Co. A representative of the syndicate, which is  backed by a well known bank, visited  Grand Forks a few days ago to engage  quarters. He stated that prices will be  cut in two.  It would do one good to look at the  curling trophies to be competed for at  bonspiel, and now on exhibition in  Hunter-Kendrick's1 window, the New  York Life Insurance Grand Challenge  Cup standing as a silver statue in the  centre surrounded'by the rest. They  are certainly a fine lot to gladden the  hearts of the captors.  Ashnola*" is growing already'. It has  now two :saw "'ills under way, one of  ttiem haying a contract io cu150,000 feet  of lumber 'for the' townsite company.  The placehas admirable sites for smelters; an almost inexhaustible supply of  coking coal, to supply the smelters of  the Boundary; plenty of water power,  and an extensive area of the richest  agricultural land in the province. These  with the ranching industry should make  tbe town a prosperous one in a ver,  short time.        ������������������,..."���������  Samuel Wm. Short, of 184 Southgate  Road N., London, Eng., has written to  the provincial authorities for information concerning his son, Louis Sebastian  Short. The provincial authorities in  turn have requested Chief of Police Jar-  vis to do what he can in the way of finding the missing son. The young man  came to Canada in March, 1900, and obtained a situation on the farm of Springs  Rice at Pense, Assa., where he remained  until October 10th, 1001, then he left  Assiniboia to go to Vancouver and Fince  then no tidings have been had of him.  His mother and father would be extremely grateful to anyone who could  give thorn news of the whereabouts of  their son. He is described as a nice  young man, 21 years old, and of steady,  regular habits.���������Nelson Miner.  If   the  Kootenaian wants   to earn a  name for respectability it must report  amusements differently from the way  it reported    the   Kaslo-Sandon   junior  hockey match.   According to the names  called by that   print  there was not a  Sandon youth who knew a hockey stick  < from a shovel handle, while every Kaslo  player was the cream of experts. It will  strike many as curious that the  Kaslo  players, under such circumstances, with  nothing against them, did  not do better than 4 to 3 or as many say a tie.  It is justice to the Sandon  boys  to say,  several of them played but little in their  lives,   and   some  of   them but once or  twice in the club.   The return match in  which Sandon's proper club maybe altogether,   may  give   the   Kootenaian  ground for reversing its criticisms. '  Mines and Mining.  The Fishe*- Maiden will have another  shipment of ore ready by March 1st.  John L. Retallack has renewed his  lease on the Washington, and will continue work as usual.  D. J. McLachlan and A. Erickson are  getting ready to ship a.car of 10,000  ounce dry ore from their Bear Lake  property.  Manager Hickey reports things going  on eyenly at the Ivanhoe. There are all  told about 30 men at work and all the  workings are looking well, with a nice  ore body in No 5 tunnel.  The Soho group is still being worked  with a small torce in the principal workings, just doing nothing more than development work. No shipping is likely  to be done until the prices,of silver and  lead improve. The property is now in  shape to ship heavily.  They had a singular experience at the  Last Chance lately. After passing the  lead in the long tunnel, and finding it  by tests on return, they commenced to  drift and in ten feet struck a nice ore  body, which they find enlarging as they  continue the drift and an upraise. The  assumption is there is ore on the other  aide of the crosscut also, that they passed the lead in the only blind ppot in its  length.^ There._are 557 men at work on  "the property all told.  i    Among the many  promising mining  properties in   tlie   Slocan   mining   district is the Ottawa, situated on Springer  creek,   about  six:   miles   from   Slocan  City.   The Ottawa was located in 1895  by Thomas Mulvey, and by the way, is  named after that   gentleman's' native  city.   Immediately adjoining the  Ottawa  are  the   Blossom   and    Jennie,  located on the same vein,, in  both of  which Mr. Mulvey is heavily interested.  The vein has been traced for 3,000 feet  and crosscut 30 feet,  the character of  the rock remaining practically unchanged tor the entire'district.   Last week  Mr. Mulvey made a sample shipment of  seven tons of ore from the Ottawa to the  Hall Mines smelter, assays from which  resulted as follows:   Lot No. 1587, 318.5  ounces silver; No. 1588,  1,6162 ounces  silver.   Mr. Mulvey is naturally highly  delighted at the result and  will  vigorously propecnte   work   on    the   three  claims, which should soon be   profitable shippers'   In the vicinity of these  claims  on   Springer   creek  are   many  other valunble properties among which  may be mentioned  the Two Friends,  Calument and Hecla, Black Prince and  Lilv B.

OPEN THE.MINES..  The other day, in a. saloon not a  hundied miles from Sandon, the wrinter  heard a,number men complaining because the owners did not open the  mines and create work; and the saloon  keeper joined the demurrage, adding  they had already made stacks of money,  and should bo compelled to commence  operations. Now, we assert without  fear of successful contradiction, that all  the dividends paid by Slocan properties, of any magnitude, were paid before  the late labor trouble, when silver ran  from 60 cents upwards and lead $2.00  aud upwards, and before the professional  agitator was board of in the country.  But, we may remark, mining to the  owner has. some business , features  similar to those of saloon keeping. It  that saloon keeper was asked by tho  men around to sell his liquors at 5 cents  a glass, and compelled to pay more for  candles, &c, and see the railways and  amcllci'8 did the best they could for the  country, all the mines in the country  would be running to their full capacity,  giving the men full time and high  wages for satisfactory work. If instead  of sitting down in their stores, on their  benches, in their shops, or in their  offices,with their mills and factories closed brooding over misfortunes, or catei ing  to the prejudices of labor, all the business men in the country would act  boldly on these lines,, we would soon  have the dawn of better days.  they want to. All we want to know is  whether or not they regard the observance of the law of their own creating as  worth even passing attention. Their  decision in this matter must have its  influence from one end of the province  to the other. ..  STUPIDITY VS. LAW.  rent  and   light,   fuel,   wages, <fcc, he  would at once say, "No sir; 1 am not  going to run business at a loss, or for  the fun of the thing���������if I can't make  something, I'll sliut up." The mine  owner says thie; nothing more or  nothing less. Wages have been runup  on him by the exigencies of tinhorn  politicians; taxation increased by alleged government necessities, and his  products are declining in valued Must  he not then take the business view of  things the saloon keeper took?  If  instead of  pandering   to certain  sentiments; because of the money they  hope  to make   thereby,   the business  men would bodily take a business view  of the situation and unite action, they  could remove some of the disabilities  now in the way of the mine owner, and  which are tying up the country.   The  properly constituted   mine  owner, or  manager says, "Our property in original  price, cost of registrations,  workings,  bunkhouses and buildings; plant, &c,  &c, stands so much  to the owners.   I  mustsee a way of realising that money  and interest on it before I am justified  in gutting the mine of the ore in sight,  at the cost of production merely to employ labor,   much   as I might like to  do it."  If under such circumstances, we say  instead of catering to certain sentiments  and prejudices, for tlie immediate  money they think they can make out of  it, the entire business men would say,  "We must have mines as well as miners  ���������we must see that the obstacles in the  way ofthe successful operation of the  mines are removed, things would soon  take a turn. If the government at  Victoria was forced to remove vexatious  restrictions and legislation; if the  government at Ottawa was compelled to  put a protective.tariff on lead and lead  products, to reduce the duties on mining  requirements ��������� machinery,      powder,  Section 24of the school law says:���������  "The nomination and election of the  board of trustees shall-be held at the  same time and by the same returning  officer or. officers, when possible, and  conducted in the same manner as the  municipal nomination and election for  mayor, &c."  City Clerk Lyons did not know enough  about Canadian law, though fully posted  on all legal requirements "on the other  side," to include in his municipal proclamation a reference to trustee election.  Section 22 of the Act says: "The  board of trustees for each city school  district shall be elected . . by the  votes of electors possessing the quali-  cationa prescribed in the "Municipal  Elections Act" for electors entitled to  vote for mayor."  Section 28 of the same Act says: "A  man to be eligible to be elected trustee  must be qualified to vote at an election  of trustees," that jb, as cited above,  qualified to vote for mayor.  In the face of this City Clerk Lyons  accepts for trustee the nomination of a  man who is on no list In the city, municipal or otherwise, for the current year,  and declares him elected.  Clause 12 of section 8 defining'the  duties of the Superintendent of Education saye: "With due deiigence.after  any complaint shall have been made to  him respecting the mode of conducting  any election of trustees, to investigate  such complaint and report *be faots to  the council of Public Instruction, who  shall confirm or set aside such election;  and in the latter case they shall appoint  the time and place for a new election iu  such district." *  Y Now, we have not one word to say  against the fitness of any of the trustees  declared elected last month, we want to  know is shall the law be observed in  Sandon or shall it notf Shall it be followed or made a piece of mimicry for  incompetent, alien officials to trample  under foot as they choose without any  manner of satisfaction to the people?  We haye complained as above against  the late election, and wo hereby call upon  the Superintendent to investigate it,  he is bound to do according to law, and  report his finding to the Council of Public Instruction. If they decide a legal  possibility becomes a legal impossibility  when a city official ignores the service  required of him; that an ineligible  candidate becomes eligible, merely because an unintelligent or prejudiced  official wills it; that school law is rigidly observed in.Sandon when, ignored by  an.incompetent; that in fact school law  is as serviceable off the statute as on it,  here we have not another word to say on  the subject. We fully acknowledge,that  from clause 12, the Council of Public  Instruction have the full right to recognise a trio of Italians living at Three  Forks, as a school board for Sandon, if  FOR OVER FIFTY YEARS.

Miss Dalby, who was assistant teacher  in the public school here for the last  eight months, left on Thursday to take  charge of the Lardcan school at an advance of salary. She is an excellent  teacher, an estimable young lady, and  her host of friends here will be glad to  hear of her success in her new undertaking. Before leaving she was the recipient of several presents accompanied  by addresses, from her pupilshere.  One of the addresses was as follows,  accompanied    by   a    handsome    gold  bracelet:  Dear Miss Dalby,  We, the pupils of Sandon  publfc school, desire on this the time of  your departure, to express our appreciation of you and your services with us.  In your work you have been kind, patient and faithful,and your moral influence'among us has been for us to emulate. Our loss will be some other's gain.  We can give expression neither to our  regret at the loss we sustain nor to the  appreciation we have for you.  Though a gift of intrinsic value can  not be a measure of our feeling, yet we  ask you to accept this token as a slight  mark of our esteem, hoping that your  remembrance of us will be of the plea-  santest, as ours will be of you. We  unite in wishing you a happy and prosperous life for the future.  - Signed on behalf of the pupils of the  .Sandon public school:  Luella Wilson.  Maria Bkociiier.  Ruehkn Warner.

Crippled finances caused by the fire  forced us to issue for the past IS months  a very small sheet, and we have to thank  the public for bearing with it as well  as they have done. We aro now, however, completing arrangements by which  we will put in a .fine steam press and  other plant to make the Mining Review  office one of the most complete in the  province, giving us facilities for doing  every description of blank work, whole  sheet posters, and every "'description of  work that may be required in this part  of the country. At the immediate present there is no crying necessity for it,  but we hope for such modifications of  legislation ere long as will allow the  mines to operate, which will give a star  to commercial business of every description.

SATURDAY,   FEBRUARY   15,   1902.  CONSERVATIVE  ACTION!  Now, it appears to us,  is the time for  the Conservatives of British Columbia  to act, and to act with decision of purpose.   At   the  Liberal   convention   at  Vancouver last week, an effectual split  occurred,     the   wing   led   by   Senator  Templeman, E. V.  Bodwell, Ac, after  being effectually floored retiring   leaving "Fighting Joe" Martin master of  the field, and chosen leader by a voce of  47 to 43.   As a party, tho Conservatives  have never   been   foremost  in  urging  Federal lines in the Local House.   The  proposition is forced upon them by the  Liberals, a vote iu favor of the digression having been carried by the convention, after having been freely endorsed  in  all corners   of  the   country before.  Tho situation then is Federal lines the  next elections with Joe Martin   leader  ofthe  Liberals,   forced   there-through  dissention3 in the Liberal party.  As a party man Joe was never strong  since he forced that anti-separate school  bill in the Manitoba legislature. The  way he was turned down in this province a few months ago, shows that even  in sunshine he is weak'; and from the  distrust   of  him   every where   by the  MIRROR, SCALES, ETC  There^was a man. And his  mirror said "sallow skin."  Ancl the scales said "losing-  weight." And his friends did  wag their heads as he passed  by. But being a prudent man  he forthwith swallowed daily-  certain pleasant doses of Scott's  Emulsion.  Then his mirror said "ruddy  face." And the scales sunk  beneath his weight. And his  friends looked upon him  with  amaze.  (Note ���������This is no fable���������but is true  history)  id you a little to try, if you like.

Of such has been Joseph's coat all his  lifetime���������of many colors, but always a  ���������wrecker when he could not get bis own .  way. The fact that after the hostile |  delegation from Victoiia left the convention in disgust, Joe was able to  carry the balance by a bare majority, is  evidence he is but little to reckon with  even in his own house.  The Conservaties should now hold a  convention, draft a proper platform,  organise their forces, and be ready on  an hour's notice. What the outcome of  the House may be, it is hard to forecast;  but certain it is a general election is not  distant, on Federal lines, with Joe and  Joe only to reckon with.  As a pointer we would suggest the  following as the skeleton of a popular  platform.  A proper redistribution measure, duly  considering population and territorial  extent.  A simple municipal measure by which  unorganised districts could collect their  own local taxes for local improvements.  Such a revision of the provincial  assessment laws as would exact more  NOTICE.  ���������  Notice is hereby given that I intend to  apply at the next sitting of the board of  license commissioners for the City of Sandon,  to be held aftor the expiration of thirty days  from thc date hereof, for a transfer of the  retail liquor license now held by mo for the  Star Hotel, situate on Reco .Avenue, iu the  City of Sandon,' on block -), West.

The microbe which breeds  disease must absolutely be received  by the. individual  before consumption can be developed.  Men and women  -who have been afflicted with obstinate coughs, bronchitis, bleeding of  the lungs, emaciation and weakness, have  been perfectly and permanently cured  by the use of Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery. It cures the cough,  heals the lungs, and builds up the body  with solid flesh.  "When I commenced taking your medicines,  eighteen months ago, my health was completely  broken down," writes Mrs. Cora I,. 'Sunderland,  of Chaneyville, Calvert Co., Md. "At times I  could not even walk across the room without  pains in my chest. The doctor who attended me  said t had lung trouble, and that I would never be  well again. At last I concluded to try Doctor  Pierce's medicines. I bought a bottle of ' Golden Medical Discovery,' took it, and;soon commenced to feel a little better, then you directed  me to take both the ' Golden Medical Discovery' and the 'Favorite Prescription,' which I  did. Altogether I have taken eighteen bottles  of ' Golden Medical Discovery,' twelve of the "  'Favorite Prescription,' aud five vials of 'Pellets.' I am now almost entirely well, and do all  my work without any pain. whatever, and can  run with more ease than I could formerly walk."

The inference of all is thatafier  a heavy expenditure of cash, the right  will triumph. Harris is in turn abused  because he will not pay taxes, while the  city owes him, and why should he?  While should any man pay any corporation while it owes him? There is no  law in Canada that would make a man  pay under such circumstances.  We are next informed the council  should assume the anarchistic role���������  ruin Harris' water power, and he would  then be forced to sell the light system  for anything the council might offer. A  nice policy, surely. With many othe  prints, the Mining Review favors municipal ownership, but by honorable pur"  chase, not by piracy or robbery. If  McAdams and the men who are inspiring a policy of .spoliation have the cash  to put up for the water and light system, as much as Harris is willing to  take, there is nothing wrong in a sale  and purchase, and much to commend  it; but until the cash is assured, possession bythe council by plunder canuot-  be approved even in Sandon.
