 : !.:���������'���������  VOL. 6.^-NO. 3/  A Branch of the Provin:ial Mining Association Organized  in This  City.  ��������� The meeting called   last ��������� Saturday to  discuss   the  mininK  situation did not  materialize.   The citizens were  too in-  terested in the final match of the local  bonspiel, for the Bostock Cup, to attend  the   meeting.   The   Mayor  decided to  postpone the matter until the fullowin*  Monday evening, j��������� order to give those  who wish to a chance to attend, nnd instructed the city clerk to'wire S. S Taylor, K. C, of Nelson, to see  if that gentleman could not come over and address  the people.  - On Monday evening, ahout 8 o'clock  anumherof the citizens interested in  the project assembled in the city hall,  but the attendance was not near like  what the occasion merited.  About halt-past eight   Mavor   Grimmett announced   the   meeting opened  and said the first thing   to be done was  to appoint a cli.iirm.an and secretary  On motion of  J.  M.  Harris and W  W. Fallows, Mayor Grimmett and City  Clerk  Lyons  were appointed  to  these  respective offices.  On taking the chair tlie ttfavor explained he had been asked tocall the meeting  by Mr. S.8. Taylor.K.C.of Nelson.tosee  if some action on the part of our citizens  could not be taken in co-operation with  the rest of the province in an endeavor to  form a branch in this city of "the Provincial MtningAssociution now being actively established all over Kritish Columbia  The   Mayor   regretted   to state  he had  received a telegram   from   Mr.   Taylor  stating his inability to attend   and 'address the meeting on the aims and objects of the new association, as  he   had  left that morning with the other Nelson  delegates to attend   the  convention  at  Victoria.  :    Personally, he, the Mayor, knewlittle  or nothing about the project,  but from  what he could learn the idea was a good  one.   The telegram 'stated- that  Kaslo,  Nelson, Grand Forks and Rossland were  sending   large   delegations.     He  also  earned that Slocan   City was  sending  four delegates and New Denver one, and  he thought it only right that Sandoo  should be represer ted with   the   rest of  the   country.   Ae  he   understood   the  movement, the -.chief, aim   of   the new  association was to secure better legislation for the mining industry.   We were  all interested in mining, and would like  to see   the  industry   more prosperous.  Its present state was deplorable, and he  ���������was of the opinion that if  the  citizens  could bring about a change of this condition, by establishing a.branch of   the  association in Sandon. we should do so.  If the citizens were in favor of the move-  ment, and decided to organize a branch,  they, would Identified to elect one dele-  gate for every twenty members, a frac-  tion over they were en titled to one more.  Before going further he would like to  gettheaentimontof the meeting as to  whether those present should organize  SAND0N' B- '0T&nm^  'or not, and would like toheardiscussion  on the subject. ,     ���������  W. W. Fallows on rising said lie would  like to hear more about the movement,  whether it would be provisional or permanent if they decided to organize at  the present stage., There was no constitution or no by-laws to give them an  idea of whnt thev were, about.

Considerable dfrcuFsion followed as to  who would be the delegates who could  attend. In view of the fact that a delegate from J^andon, owing to the lateness  in holding the meeting, would arrive at  the convention one day late, and for  monetary r.easons, it was decided to  represent the city by proxy.

It is harder to get the microbe  possibi'ity of some of theminers getting  less than $3.50 a day, but it is alt-o apparent that a number secure rather  exorbitant wages for their hours of work  and just where the difficulty lies is hard  to get at. One thing is certain that if  the trouble ii not speedily settled every  line of business in the province will be  affected to a great extent. It really is a  disgrace how easily causes for a gem ml  strike are trumped up by a few disgruntled ones, which only brii������g suffering to those "ordeied out" and bring  about degradation to the province at  large.   The opinion of the public islhat  out of the blood than to keep it out, but  Dr. Fierce's Golden Medical Discovery  does both, by purifying the blood  and then keeping  it pure.  If   there   are  the trust. From freezing British Columbia out of the American ore market  they will in turn be froze outof the Canadian market for the refined product.  If Mr. Johnson is sincere in his asser-'  tion that he is here to bid for all the ore  he can get, well and good. II he will  compute for Slocan ore after the adoption of a protective tariff, and, can offer  New York prices, less the duty, better  still. But if he is only here to divert action by some of the operators, agaiii9t  tariff revision, the less they have to do  with him the better for their own interests and the welfare of the country  at large.   Mr.  Fielding   has   recently   claimed  that his tariff'has lessened the  taxation  of the people by fifteen millions in   five  years.   There is no   further   basis   for  this claim than   the fact that   the   percentage when the duty collected bean- to  the value of imports is less than  it was  in 1899.   In 18% Mr.  Foster  collected  an average rate of eighteen and a quarter per cent, on   a   total   importation,  duiible and free, of $110,000,000, raising  in round  figures   $20,000,000.     In   the  fiscal year 1902 Mr. Fielding levied   an  average rate of sixteen per cent, on over  $202,000,000  of   imports,   collecting   in  round figii res $32,000,005. It. will be seen  that the. people did not   pay   $3,000,000  less customs taxation in   1902   than   in  1890.   They paid $12,000,000 more.     It  is true that the percentage on   imports  was reduced by two and a quaiter,  but  Mr. Fielding has no right  to  say   that  Mr, Foster would not have made a  ������till  Certificate of Improvements;  NOTICE.

The Bonspiel Finish.  G- ..  .  The finals in the bosnspiel were played i>!i Saturday between the rinks skipped by F. A.   Tamblyn   of  Nelson and  Dr. Gomm of Sandon.   The games were  witnessed by a large and   enthusiastic  crowd, who applauded either side when  a good shot was made.     Tamblyn   won  the Harris chain and   the   same  rink  skipped by Judge Forin carried oft'  the  Merchants trophy, but Dr. Gomm   won  the Bostock Cup   In the evening after  the last contest was played a large number of the curlers assembled in the Reco  hotel   to   witness   the   distribution  of  prizes.   Mayor Grimmett was delegated  to the chair and in a   few   well   chosen  remarks thanked the Nelson   rink   for  attending the local   bonspiel  and  congratulated them on seccuring so many  prizes.   Judge Forin and Mr. -Tamblyn  replied in  a hearty   manner   and   expressed their apreciation   of   the   kind  manner in' which   they   were   treated  during the series of games.   There is  a  curioui fact   in   connection   with   tlie  Harris chain and Bostock cup.      While  the former has never stayed in   Sandon  since it was donated by Mr. J. M. Harris  to the local club, the latter   has   never  left the city, and hasbeen won  by Sandon rinks six years in succession.'  After the prizes were distributed a  merry time was spent for a few hours  by those present.  The Nelson rink left the following  morning for home loaded down with  umbrellas, cigars, jerseys and other  prizes. They also were fortunate to capture the celebrated Cord wood trophy,  which has been in the posaeasion of Dr.  Gomm for several years. The Dr. agrees  to furnish the customary medals,  which accompanies the trophy and will  forward them to the successful winners  just as soon-as they are struck off at the  tinsmith shop as there  is  no   mint   in  town.

Melville, watchmaker, is enjoying a good   joke   at   fonie of citizens  expense.  Mr. Melvin had occasion to go  to Nelson on business   Monday, and as  there  have   been   numerous rumors of  him contracting marriage floating about  lately, he was asked by a person  at the  station if he was going away to be married.    Melvin asked the questioner if he  could keep a secret, and Eaying he could  was told "I might possibly  bring back  a bride."   Secret or no secret, the news  was   too   good   to   keep, and  in a very  short   time   the   news was reported all  over town that Geo. Melvin had gone to  get married and  would   return   accompanied by his wife   the   following  day.  Curiosity to see the bride,brought a large  number of people of both  sexes to the  C. P. R. depot on Tuesday evening when  the train puffed   into   the station.   As  with a beaming face Mr. Melvin stepped  on the platform, he received congratulations and hearty hand shakes from a  number present, who inquired after the  bride.   They were   informed there was  none, or no intention of any just now,  that the whole thing was a joke, when  the crowd burst into a   fit  of   laughter  and dispersed homeward.

The Reco mine has practically closed  down. The entire crew of miners were  iaid oft'work Monday, with the exception, of three men, who will for a  time at least, be kept on development  work. The method of mining at the  Reco is.quite different from that of other  properties of the camp, in that it is  only operated during the win ter months.  This is done to take advantage of ruw-  hiding, which is found to be a more  economic way of bringing the ore from  the mine to a shipping point than mule  packing duing the summer months.
