 VOL. 5���������NO. 34.  SANDON, B. C, SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 8, 1902.  $2.00 PER YEAR.  Town Jottings.  Business appears tl) bo getting "no  better, fast."  The refinery at Trail is going ahead as  fast as it can.  The sun is commencing to make its  influence felt again.  Work on the Payne concentrator is  going ahead steadily.  Mrs. Geo. Ransom and family are now  living at New Denver.  See the fine stock of nsw ingrain wall  paper .at Cliffe's bookstore.  A. B. Docksteader went to the Liberal convention at Vancouver.  Curling, as an amusement, seems to  be taking the lead this winter.  A sleighing party on Tuesday night  took a dozen or more of our young people to a dauce at Three Forks.  Sandon's senior hockey team has notified Rossland that they will enter the  listsin the hockey tournament.  A slight accident occurred to the  Minto near Arrowhead on Sunday evening, which delayed service a little.  The C. P. R. is completing arrangements to build a line of railway between Spence's Bridge and Midway.  The arch vilifier says he is employed  editing Lowery's Claim. That's natural;  "birds of a feather flock together."  Several cars of an express were derailed on the Crow's Nest line on Monday  morning, but fortunately no one was  hurt.  The Chinese held their New Year's  this week. There are only a Jew white  ones in Sandon, and they did not celebrate, i  The freezing of Kootenay lake the past  two or three weeks has materially interfered with the regularity of the mail  service.  About the end of the month several  Sandonites will commence lo move to  Ashnola, the new town in the Similka-  meen district.  The "Dynamite Queen" has been in  the vicinity for some time. She had a  set-too with Brother Steel at the American Boy the other day.  We would advice those parents who  desire to have the second teacher retained to petition the city council to  that effect. We will give them the  names of many who have no children to  send who will sfgn it.  Mr. W. H. Sandiford, manager of the  Bosun, has gone to England, to lay before the company who own the Bosun  and other properties, some matters of  importance to them. In his absence  Mr. 8andiford, jr., will look after the  Bosun and other interests.  At a meeting called for last Monday evening to resuscitate the band  but three players���������K. Sharp, J. Gable  and Wm. Clifle put in an appearance.  These three were appointed a committee  to Bee what players were in town, and  J. Vallance, F. Ritchie and C. Walmsley weJe selected to look after finances.  If the boys see financial success ahead a  band can be secured.  Col. Brayton, of Kaslo, has great faith  in the smelter proposition.  Thawing out water pipes is the leading enterprise in the city these days.  The back of the cold weather appears  to be broken, for the present at least.  John Buckley has taken out a license  for the Clifton, and is now on the ground  floor for business.  Lead has gone up 2s Id in London. It  Js now quoted at ������1112s 6d. Silver is  55}4 in New York.    ,  The Cosgrove Merrymakers, one of  the best troupes on the road, will play  here in a few days.  :R'6ssland's hockey tournament will  consist of the Sandon, Nelson, Rossland  and Phoenix teams.  Some Sandonites declare they felt the  slight vibrations of an earthquake on  Monday night. They were perceptibly  felt in Montreal.  The Rossland Minerquotes local stocks  this way, asked: American Boy, 9^;  Rambler, 84)������; Noble Five, 1; Payne.  32; Wonderful, 5 cents.  .  The Rossland Junior hockeyists that  Sandon licked three years in succession  hands down, defeated the crack team of  Nelson easily the other evening.  The Sunset will pay G..W. Hughes  and partners a handsome divideud the  early part of next week, Mr. Hughes  is working that property quietly, but  all the same to good advantage to the  owners.  Geo%.Creech gave, a house warming  last night to a number of young people  and others not so young, in his new  residence on Sunnyside. They had an  enjoyable time. The building will be  completed in about two week. 8  Our.hockey kids went over to Kaslo to  play a match with Kaslo kids, but when  they got there they found themselves  up against a posse of giants���������the largest  men in the town, and compelled to battle with them the best way they could.  Mines and Mining.  The Marion is shipping 100 tons of ore.  The Neepawa is shipping 100 tons a  month.  The Ivanhoe has 40 men at work in  the mine.  The Ottawa mine at Slocan City has  been rebonded for $45,000.  Silverton and New Denver hockeyists  defeated ' Slocan the other night in a  score of 11 to 7.  The Slocan Star people are now working on the Slocan King with excellent  prospects before them.  The ore bodyin the Silversmith is  still widening out under the drills. It  is now nearly five feet of clean, solid  steel galena, the best every got in that  locality. The indications are that this  claim will outstrip all the past fame of  this celebrated mine.  School  Matters.  The McGuigan Basin is assuming new  life and has now as many men working  as ever in its history. The Rambler-  Cariboo has over 100 men on the pay  roll, and will inci-ease it in the early-  spring when the concentrator is started.  The Washington that lay idle for years,  is showing up large bodies of ore under  the hammers of the of the 16 men J. L.  Retallack has at work on thc property.  Mr. {Smith has a number of men working the Surprise,'which promiees to become a large property, and a few men  are at work on the Soho, the Red Fox  and the Dardanelles. Greenaugh Bros,  of this city, have a crosscut of 110 feet  driven on the Antoine. This extensive  work means = the heaviest shipping in  the history ofthe camp. Y  The most contemptible of all curs is  the creature who is ever bent on iujur-  ng a business rival by inuendo, never  jdaring to make a charge. Here is a  specimen from McAdams print:  "It is rumored that the old accounts  are not ;all settled, although the provincial government is supposed to have  forwarded the money for the purpose  and the new board proposes to find out  ff Mr. Cliffe has been guilty of irregu-  larity."  There isenough in-this to lead the  public who do riot know the calibre of  the writer to believe. Mr. Clifle may  have done some things wrong; but not  enough to leave him liable to an action  for criminal libel. ���������    :  Although secretary-treasurer^ of the  school board /or the past six months,  Mr. Cliffe is accountable no one but the  government for school monies, to satify  the curious he gives the following statement, as comprising all the money he  has handled:  DR.  Sept.���������To received from Mr.Lov-  ering.....  $50 00  Jany.���������To received from govt.....     5 00  To balance         10  $55 10  BY.

XT ., ,      , ,    .  * < Nearer the surface he says, he has seen  larger ore shoots, but none that come up  people contend they scored i  contest  it  The Kaslo  but three times and were defeated by  one point. As a war of words will not  change the matter, we simply give the  two sides of the story, leaving it for future contests to decide who are the  better club.  The curling match of the season was  played on Thursday evening when the  "crack'? curlers of Sandon skipped by  Compeau and Cawley ppread themselves on the ice, there being so many-  players available, five on each side were  chosen and the game was a "buster" in  earnest. It was a case of."in and out  turn, put this fellowoutof business,Jim,  take a smash at that one Pete, and  Jack come straight down on a whirl,"  from start to finish. When time was  called Cawley had vanquished Compeau  by a score of 11 to 4. We have not heard  what trophy was played for or.when  a return game will be played, and beyond a good test the stones were none  the worse of the shaking up they received, as upon examination they were  all found to be intact.  $55;10  A man with an ounce of honor would  publish this statement, and if found  correct after investigating, offer an  apology; but an arch vilifier of human  character never. We wait to see which  McAdams will prove himself to ba.  The charge that Mr. Cliffe refused to  deliver the books is a malicious lie out  of whole cloth, as he was never yet  asked for them. It will be seen by. the  foiegoing until Mr. Cliffe received $5  from Mr. Lovering out of concert funds  his expenditure exceeded money receiv-  by $5.10, which is the experience of  most school boards.  to it at the same vertical depth. The ore  shoot is 2)<j feet in width and has been  drifted on for a distance of 45 feet, and  it looks as though it is going to widen  out. The ore is of a high grade, too,  carrying about 150 ounces in silver to  the ton and from 75 to 80 per cent lend.  Tlie ledge in which the shoot was encountered in the American Boy is the  same one that runs into the Last Chance  and from which so much high grade ore  has been extracted by the Last Chance  management. It is not the same ledge  however, asjthe one on which a strike  was made at a depth of 1600 feet in the  Last Chance."  Sandon Ore Shipments.  The following are the ore shipments  from Sandon, for the week were:  Mine. Tons.  Ivanhoe  25  Sunset  60  Reco  20  American Boy  20  Payne  50  Spokane, Jan. 31.���������W. YD. Wrighter.  W. 0. Jones and M. C. Dunne, of Spokane, W.J. Wilson, of Nelson, and Thos.  McGuigan, of Sandon, were elected  trustees of the American Boy Mininn  company at the annual meeting of the  stockholders at room 515, Hyde block,  yesterday afternoon. There were 1,166,-  204 shares represented at the meeting  out of 1,286,000 shares issued.  The report of manager, Thomas McGuigan, shows 1738 feet of tunneling  and dri fting, 1360 feet of r8i'se and 5422  cubic yards of sloping. The mine sliip-  f.t 1743 tons of ore, netting the company  $45,962.2S, or a net profit, after paying  all the expenses at the mine, of $5887.  Mr. McGuigan said: "I estimate that  the ore in transit to the smelters will  clear off the indebtedness at the mine.  Aside from this the company had an  indebtedness of abont $1600. "With the  splendid showing in the mine there is  every reason to believe the property can  be made a dividend payer within the  next few months.  "There is between $50,000 and $60.-  000 worth oforo in sight, and steps are  to be taken at once to drive tunnel No.  5, which we estimate will strike the  same ore phoot in which we' are now  working in tunnel No. 3. This tunnel  to the ore body will not c*yceed ]20 feet  in length. The paystreak in tunnel No.  3 averages two and one-half feet wide  and assays from 76 to 81 per cent, lead  and 150 ounces in silver. We have al ���������  ready followed the paystu-ak in tunnel  No. 3 a distance of 35 feet."  !liaM:nK4imMAll'.tnx������maHa'ai������iiHuii.Ki������wnu������i  ���������i]i.i������iii.iminiinuu. THE MINING REVIEW���������Saturday, February 8,  1902.  !. 1  T < 5* -*     -> "8"  ������Iie Mining I  SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 8, 1902.  WORK THE MINES.  By this time nearly every man in  British.Columbia hat come to thecon-  1 elusion, that much of the froth and fury  of the lust two years over the industrial  question, has bean so much energy  thrown away. As far as this paper is  concerned,' nothing would be more  pleasing than to s-?c every available  miner getting his $3.50 for an eight hour  day.which would imply profitable wages  for all tho other industrial classes, but  conditions must bo changed to render  this possible���������Ihe mines must be worked, and .before they can be, investors  must be assured of some interest on the  money they have invested. There is  not a man in the country that can gainsay this, and still it only earns reproach  from certain parties who know better,  for saying it..  It is quite true that mostof our mines  that have been extensively worked have  paid dividei.ds, but it was under different conditions���������it was when minerals  brought"-better prices, legislation was  less exacting, and when the agitator  had not yet commenced to ply his  calling.  From the indications, our legislators  have come to tlie conclusion they must  make up the taxation they have tried  to exact, from the mines from  other, sources on which so many yital  ; interests are not centred. The agitator  we are to,bear with yet a little longer,  and legislation must be secured to compensate in some measure for our reduced prices of minerals.  If the Ottawa government can secure  an equitable reciprocity with the United  States, that will meet all requirement--,  as then our mine owners as well as the  American producers will get American  pi ices for silver and lead.  If reciprocity of trade cannot be had,  we musthave reciprocity of tariff���������a duty  that\vill exclude foreignlead in any foi m,  manufactured and-otherwise from ihe  Canadian markets. There is no other'  hope for the country, and the sooner  our government grapples with the question the better for the wliole of Canada.'  With proper protection .we will have  full control of all our own markets, instead of .sending pur cash to the United  States for American j-oods;- and Canadian manufacturers being able to buy  raw lead at $2.50 per cwt. at least,  should be able to compete in any outside market with American manufacturers who would have lo pay a third  more for their raw materials. We, at  least, can see this matter in no other  light.  It is not a question for our govern-  menU to consider what, is or what is not  an equitable tax for our mines to pay  under present conditions. The question  is to start them properly, that they may  give life to the rest of the commercial  machinery of the country, and when  they are once running on a paying  basis, taxation will be fully in order. If  it: was a fact that a mine was simply an  institution like a farm or a general -tore  whose opening or closing a fleeted no one  but the.owner himself, it would boa  small 'matter;, but when their operation  or inoperation means life or death to  all other enterprises���������to the, whole  country for that matter���������their treat-  ' merit should be Considered on abroad  'national basis.

SCOTT   &   UOWNE,      Chemists,  Toronto,  From what we can learn of the proceedings at the Liberal convention at  Vancouver this week and thegenwral  trend of sentiment in the country, it is  evident the next provincial elections,  and they are not likely to be long deferred, will be fought out on Federal  party lines. If our representative men  were moved by principle only there is  no necessity for this, tor there are none  of the issues that have given rise to the  Federal ''parly'names all right in  the provincial arena; but if there is  no-means of keeping these men from  jumping from side to side, as a squirrel  jumps from branch to branch, without  any a,t>n:u*������nt reason for doing so, let us  have  the  Federal lines.    Although the  economy consistent with efiiciency in  the public service, it will have our best  support. If it decides otherwise, we  hold ourseives free to do the 'oust we  can for the future of tho country. Experience has long since taught  us that virtue, capability and honor in  men aro not all embodied in parly name.  It requires more than a name to make a  man, and more than declared principles  to make a parly���������it requires action in  responsibility.  NOTICE.

We call thu attention of the public, to  the economy of the new school board, as  announced in their estimates in another  column.   Deducting $25  for water service, Jjv50 for insurance, andiflOO paid an  assistant for two  months, they  propose  to have lhe school with one teacher cost  $1,400.    Last, year the school wilh  two  teachers cost just $1,090,'ami out of that  sum. according to the insinuationsof the  Public   Slanderer,   Mr.   Clifle    had    a  chance to steal a lot of money besides.  Now, we all-felt the   principal wa.s   in-  snflieiently paid.buI addingiflSOmore'foi  ���������him, the school with  two teachers and  last year's managemuit could be run for  $1,740.   According fowhaf is.now known  the attendance with one teacher will be  from 7 lo 10 less  than with two, reducing the government grant- by  at least  $150.   By   cutting   oil' one teacher the  city will save under Ihe new rule $190 a  year.    We ask tin!  ratepayers,'one and  all, if it. will.pay to drive  families away  from the place for lhe sake of saving 7S  cents a  day in ''taxation  of the  whole  city?

Many a man looks  on at his wife's suffering  lf%\ willing to do anything  to aid her and able to do  nothing.  Sometimes,   however,  the. husband's attention is directed to  Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription and  its  remarkable cures of womanly diseases.    He may not have much hope of  a cure, but he is led to try the medicine,  with thc result that in almost every case  there is a perfect and permanent cure.  Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription cures  irregularity. It dries the drains which  weaken women, heals inflammation and  ulceration, and cures female weakness.

We, at  least, can see this matter in no other  light.  It is not a question for our governments to consider what, is or what isnot  an equitable tax for our mines to pay  under present conditions. The question  is to start them properly, that they may  give life to the rest of-the commercial  liiitchinery' of the country, and when  they are once running on a paying  basis/taxation will be fully in order. If  it was a fact that a mine was simply an  institution'like a farm or a general .-tore  whose opening or closing affected no one  but the,owner himself, it would he a  small matter; but when their operation  or inoperation means life or death to  all. other enterprises���������-to the whole  country for that matter���������their treatment should be considered on abroad  national basis.

Many a man looks  on at his wife's suffering  willing to do anything  to aid her and able to do   nothing.  " ~        Sometimes,   however,  the husband's attention is directed to  Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription and  its remarkable cures of womanly diseases. He may not have much hope of  a cure, but he is led to try the medicine,  with the result that in almost every case  there is a perfect and permanent cure.  Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription cures  irregularity. It dries the drains which  weaken women, heals inflammation and  ulceration, and cures female weakness.  As a tonic for women who are nervous,  sleepless; worn-out and run-down "Favorite Prescription" is unequaled.  "In answer to your letter I will say, ray wife  commenced  to  complain  twenty  years   ago,"  ���������writes I^ewis A. Miller, ex-Chief-of-Police, of 33-  "Prospect St., Weissport, Pa.

Public Slanderer, Mr. Clifle had a  chance to steal a lot of money besides.  Now, we all felt the principal was insufficiently paid,but adding $150more foi  him, the school with two teachers and  last year's management could be run for  $1,740. Affording to what is now -known'  the attendance with one teacher will be  from 7 10 10 iess than with two, reducing the government grant by at least  $150. By .cutting off one teacher the  city will save under the new rule $190 a  year. We ask the ratepayers, one and  all, if it. will pay to drive families away  from the place for *llie sake of saving 78  cents a day.',in taxation, of the whole  city?

It is amusing to hear people say, when  they learn certain men-., are worth several million dollars, that they made it  by robbery, they could not have made  it any other way.   They never think of  blaming the profit system of the world,  and never make a calculation to learn  the foundation for their charge.   Let us  look at the matter, however. Supposing  Tom Jones at 21 years of age, Avith$1000  cash,.who bought part  of  his stock at  least in a commercial business for cash,  at the end of one year made 25 per eent.  profit   on   his   capital,  or   $250 and no  more, there is no one who would say he  Avas a thief   for   making it;  but   there  Avould be many who would say he was a  had business man if he did not make it.  Supposing again he met with like success and no better the second year, he  Avould   then   be  worth  .$1,505.   It will  surprise the masses if Ave say that if he  kept on this Avay year, after year, adding  25 per cent, to the capital-he had the  year before.at 71 years of age, or 50 years  after starting, he Avould  be worth just  one hnndredand ten millions of dollars.  It is a fact all the same, howeArer.   It is  not   t.he   rate   of profit made, but the  capability to handle large capital that  makes the money. There are thousands  of men that can well handle a few thousands of dollars, a reduced number who  can take care of the hundreds of thousands; and but very few who can in the  same way handle the  millions.   If the  man who made the .$110,000,000 in a life  time left all to a son 21 years of age, at  his death, who could handle the wealth  as   the   father had   done,  and   so   on.  three or four generations there would be  one man who would own tha world, and  be in a position to drive, in a court of  law, all others off the face of the earth.  The Nelson Tribune says that if the  Crow's Nest Coal company Avould reduce  the price, the smelters would get cheaper coke. In turn the Nelson Miner says  that if the C. P. Ii. would reduce its  freights the same end would be secured.  As it is generally believed the C. P. R.  and-, the Crow!s Nest' Coal Co. own or  nearly oAvn the two papers, an explanation for the tit-for-tat argument can be  easily understood. It seems to us that  if both companies made a reduction it  would greatly benefit the countiy and  do away with the areuruent.  City Council.  Met Monday evening, the Mayor and,  Aids.

It is not worth  a continental. The Dominion government controls the manufacture, so a  man can get a Dominion licence to  make the "craythur" anywhere in  Canada, even in the most prohibited  localities. The only cure for intemperance is education as to its evils. When  mankind is convinced it is a mistake to  drink alcoholic liquors they will quit  drinking, and then temperance will follow without legislation to enforce it. A  man ia not honest who is prevented  from stealing through fear of the law;  neither will intemperate men become  temparatc through prohibitive legislation as long as liquor ia made and to  be had.  172 50  The new trustees (?)  estimate is as  follows:  Principal, Jan. and Feb   ..$ 170  Assistant       "           <<      100  Janitor, two months         30  One man, ten months ...   ....1000  Coal, one year. .       100  Water installation.........       25  Contingencies ���������.....  ...............   100  Insurance         50  '���������'������������������.'   $ 1575  The finance committee passed these  bills and they'were ordered paid:i  7  Waite, salary for Jan........ $100-00  C.
