Array VOL. 5���������NO. 30.  SANDON, B.O., SATURDAY, JANUARY 11, 1902.  $2.00 PER YEAR.  Town Jottings.  Fernie has seven cases of smallpox..  Aid. McDonald went to ', Nelson. on  Wednesday. '   .  ��������� If Judge Lilly, don't soon "haul down  that flag," it will have lost its beauty.  A snowslide between New Denverand  Three   Forks   delayed   the ��������� train  on  Tuesdav.,  ..  There is some talk- of the Hon. G. E.  Foster contesting the vacancy in Victoria for the Commons.  Louis Miller, who was hurt at the  Pavne some weeks ago, died in the Spokane hospital last week.  VVinnipeg has' four "competing" railroads, and yet the people complain of-  the freights as in uch as when they had  but one.  Most people may not know, the Last  Chance people are double tracking their  long tunnel of about 2050 feet. This is  one of the novelties of the camp.  The public'will' sympathise with Dr.  and Mrs. Gomm in the loss of their only  child on Sunday last. It is very hard to  part with the little ones at any age.  We have heard of several snowslides  in the vicinity the past few days; but  fortunately no damage to either life or  property has been done by any of them.  B. C. Riblet has erected several tramways on Vancouver Island. He appears to have a.very strong 'string 'on  the entire tram" business of the-pro-..  vince.  Here is the opinion of one sensible  man at least:; "Kaslo, Jan. 3rd, 1902.  The Mining Review, Sandon. Gentlemen,���������I have been many times pleased  in reading your paper to see the healthy  and sensible writings on public matters."  Mr. Whittier says the reason the  Goodenough has closed down and let  out its ten miners, ie because they have  been unable to make any money out of  it the past three years. The dividend  declared the other day was from money  on hand. .-,���������������������������  This is the way "Shady" Giegerich  sella apples: A man asked him the  other day for ten cents'worth. The  answer was laconically: Take all you  can cover with one hand. Up there the  large handed man has the start of his  fellow beings.  The Phoenix Pioneer says: A, B.  Docksteader, of Sandon, was a visitor  this week at the home of his father, D.  Docksteader. A family re-union dinner  was given New Years day by Mr. and  Mrs. W. R. Lockhart, on Standard ave.,  at which three generations of the family  were present.  Many of the Nelson people think that  if Kirkpatrick happens to be elected  mayor he cannot hold the seat, as the  taxes of some property in which he is  interested were not paid before the 1st  of December. Trifles like that never  block municipal matters in Sandon.  Men can even sue the city here under  contracts and hold their seats as aldermen.  Tattrie & Band, formerly owners of  the brewery here, are likely to commence the building of another at Frank,  Alberta, about the firstof March. Mr.  Tattrie has gone over the field, and considers it a promisng one ass the plao.p is  boomine. He finds, however, that like  the dealers in all other new towns, the  real estate men aro holding their pro*  pertv too hieh���������$100 for a 25 foot lot a  mile from the centre of the place. People retard rather than advance the  prospect of new towns by such foolish  actions.  M. Gintzburger and wife went to  Kaslo yesterday.  i^am Lovatt, brother of our mayor,  has gone to South Africa with the last  contingent.  It is understood Mrs. Cunning, wife  of Aid. Cunning, is likely to return to  Sandon shortly.  The steamer Revelstoke was launched  at Nakusp on the 8th. She will ply  on the Columbia, 50 miles north from  Revelstoke.  J. McDonald, an expert on the working of machinery, drills, &c, of Denver,  Colorado, is now at the Payne looking  over machine operating there.  Times are certainly getting no better  fast in Sandon. There are now about  200 men working in the hills where  there ought to be 2,000, and the cause is  not far to seek.  The trusteesof the band instruments  have instructed Mr. Grimmett to take  such steps as may be considered necea-'  sary to recover possession of the instruments from Mr. Trenarey. ���������  It is ali right for the lawyers of course;  but all tho same it appears to most, people the city is called on to .pay heavy  lawyers bills for advising Clerk Lyons  on matters on which he ought to be well  posted himself.  There are only ten men in the city  eligihle.for mayor and aldermen. There  are besides these ..ten C. Walmsley, A.  Osborne and R. Jalland, who we understand, are on. the bonds of city officials  and, therefore, disqualified.  The-Presbyterian Ladies' Aid Society  will give'a Basket Social in aid of the  church on Thursday. Jan. 16th. There  will be other interesting features in the  entertainment which cannot fail to  please. Everyone welome; ��������� admission  free.  People who have a regard for their  buildings should see the. snow is removed when it becomes soft weather.  Folliott & McMillan's shed collapsed  the other day on a lot of machinery and  lumber. Aid. Cameron's scare crow on  the flume suffered the same fate.  Here is an excerp from MoKenzie  King's report on the Rossland strike.  It shows he finds squarely against the  union, as it was reported in these  columns some weeks ago he would do.  The fact .that the Nelson Tribune is  roundly abusing him for his finding is  sufficient proof the unions are not  satisfied with his work: "I asked that  a meeting of the union might be called,  at which I might make a statement to  the members of the situation. This the  committee was unwilling to grant. I  offered to put what I had to say in  writing, and to read to the union only  the written statement after it had been '  submitted to them for their approval.  They would not, however, consent to  this. I subsequently, at the request of  the local executive, saw one of the  officers of the district association, to  which the local .union is subordinate,  and asked, as I had asked the executive  of the local union, whether or not he  would be willing for. the local union to  take a vote on the question of whether  or not the strike should be continued.  This, he said, could not be allowed!"  There will be a meeting of the liberals  of Sandon and vicinity on Wednesday  evening next in the council chamber  here, to discuss the advisability of forming a Liberal Association, and electing  a delegate to the convention to be held  in Vancouver on the 30th instant.  It looks now as if the Noble Five and  Last Chance were going to have a tnssle  in the courts similar to that enjoyed by  the Star and Slocan Star, and the War  Eagle and the Iron Mask. Jas. Dunsmuir for the Noble Five has taken out  an injunction against the Last Chance  to stop them encroaching on Noble Five  ground.  Mayor Lovatt is urging the prompt  collection of all taxes due, that the city  may straighten up its affairs. He is  opposed in this by some of the council.  Aid. Cunning claims realty taxes cannot be collected till two years due.  This is, of course, a mistake. Taxes are  a coi poration debt, and can be collected  in court the same as any other debt.  Collector Lyons is not disposed to act  in the matter.  Some of the friends of Chief Waite  justify his allowing those west end women to escape the other day, on the  ground he had no authority to hold  them. This the mayor and other offi-  cala say i'b not the case. They were  brought up under warrants, and when  they pleaded poverty they were allowed  a certain time to pay np in and their  liberty on their own recognisances.  Chief Waite, they say, was instructed  to look after them under the warrants,  and not allow them to leave the city till  their fines were paid.  City Council.  A regular meeting of the council was  held Monday evening with the usual  formality���������Present Mayor, Aids. Cameron, Cunning, Folliott, Duffy and Jalland.

The Whitewater shipped 41 tons this  week.  The Rambler at McGuigan shipped  102 tons for this week.  The last shipment from the Silver  Glance was 20 tons shipped a few  days ago.  The ore shipments of the Payne last  week were 154 tons, instead of 82 a6 reported..   ,  The.managers ot the Last Chance and  the American Boy say all they have to  report is that these properties are looking remarkably well.  The owners of the Silver Glance at  Bear Lake took out one car of 200 ounce  ore in placing a set and a half of timbers  on their drift.  The Goodenough mine closed down on  Tuesday letting out about 10 men. The  low price of lead can have tothing to do  with it, as the property carries but little lead.  The Star people sent up a body of  mining experts on Saturday to examine  the workings of the Slocan Star, to secure evidence for the courts in the celebrated apex case.  The new ore house erected at the Reco  the past year serves the Company a good  purpose whenever rawhiding and packing are unfavorable. The mine works  about 30 men right along, winter, and  summers-'r ' '-'- '  Some davs ago the Payne people in  sinking a winze below No. 5 tunnel encountered a large body of high grade  ore. They have since prosecuted'work  to a depth of over 60 feet; and find the  body continuous, as to body and grade,  which goes to show that even in ' the  lowe.Bt depths this celebrated property  is sure to prove a valuable mine.  The True Blue mine near Kaslo, managed by J. C. Drewry, of Rossland,.has  started shipping, the first consignment  of high grade copper ore having been  rawhided down to the Hall smelter on  the first of the year. Further consign-  mentswill follow as long as rawhiding  continues. The development of the  property is being continued meantime  with excellent results.  The annual meeting of the Globr  Mining Company, Limitc'd Liability,  was held at Kaslo on Tuesday last.  Reports of last year's operations were  discussed and "the company's future  prospects Avere under consideration.  At the next meeting on Tuesday, January 14th, new officers for the coming  year will be elected and all plans for  future work decided upon.  Sandon Ore Shipments.  The following are the ore shipments  from Sandon, for the week were:  Mine. Tone.  Ivanhoe  30  Sunset  40  Reco  20  American Boy  20  Total,  110  T, o. Folliott says he will  for alderman again.  not stand  Kaslo has cut off the salaries of mayor  and alderman. Most of these small  places cannot pay salaries.  Dunsmuir'f* coal steamer Bristol was  wrecked at Dixon's Entrance on Wednesday. The captain and seven others  perished;   Loss over $60,000.  In a collision on the New York Central tunnel on Wednesday some 30 people lost their lives and many others  were seriously wounded.  Mto^*^^^ THE MINING REVIEW���������Saturday, January ii, 1902.  The Mining Review.  SATURDAY, JANUARY 11,  1902.  RETROSPECTIVE.  It does not now require either a philosopher or a sage to show that the mining legislation of thef province of the  past two years has not been the best for  either the owner, the business man or  the  miner.   Because the Review took  strong ground in this matter, a number  of people set to work to abuse the paper  and even to  boycott its business, as if  that was going to help the country; but  all the same it is now an easy matter for  all to judge whether .this   paper was in  the   right, or   the wrong.   The Review  never  contended   eight  hours was too  short a day for miners  to work, on the  contrary,    we   repeatedly said it was  often   too long a   shift   in   many   of  the workings.   Nor did this paper declare that $3.50 was too much  for good  men for an eight hour day.    What we  did say was that wages should be based  on capability just as wheat, wood,.coal,  clothing and other commodities are sold  on   their  actual   value.    Summed   up  what we contended was, it was too early  in the history of   the   mining camps to  introduce any measures that prevented  owners and men from making theirown  bargains���������that restrictions either way  could  not iaU  to work  mischief.    We  know that nine-tenths of all  the business men of the Slocan are of our way of  thinking, but some are afraid to say so for  fear of  losing trade'thereby ; we know  also that scores and  scores of the best  miners in the country,  for many have  told us so, are  fully   in   line  with our  convictions, but dare not say so for fear  of the machines.   However, resultshave  told theirown story.   The miners know  whether or not collectively  they have  made as much money as before the tinkering took place.   The business men know  whether or not they are doing the trade  now they did three years ago,  and the  mine owners are just as well assured on  a   comparison   of   their bank accounts  then and now.  Whether the Review gets credit for it  or not,we have only to say that from the  outset we wrote from no other motives  than the best interests of the men, the  best success of the business community,  and the welfare of the country. Take  the situation in Sandon alone. In 1898  we shipped over 24,000 tons of ore, and  with a larger number of better developed mines now than then, our output last  year was but a trifle over 11,000 tons, less  than half what it was three years ago  when it should have been double. These  figures show that the men have, not had  woik here the past year, that the business men have not sold the goods, and  that the owners have not made the  money, and all because a condition of  which the Review rightly disapproved  has been forced upon the country.  It ia quite true that...the declining  prjce of lead has had something to do  with the decline of business;- but this  no one could have prevented; but so  also have the legal restrictions of which  we speak, which the people readily  could have prevented. What we want  in this-matter, now that a fair trial has  been had all around; is an honest  declaration from the peeple. Which  course was the better one, that of the  paper that pointed out the mistake and  anticipated ''the' inevitable consequences, even though it was unpopular,  or that of the' press that endorsed the  WHAT'S IN A NAME?  Depends : upon the "name.  Scott's Emulsion is a name  that has "value.- Maybe it  doesn't mean much to you���������  but to the consumptive who  has been strengthened and fattened, to the sickly children  who have received good health,  to the weak' 'mothers' and  babies who have grown strong  ���������to these Scott's Emulsion  means something.' ;   .  To all of them it lias' meant'  an easy and natural return to  health.'  This io priictically the substance of the  proposed reduction.  It may be a punishable offence for us  to say so, but nevertheless tire cheapest  way the city council can protect the  city from the flume and its consequences including expense, is to.turn the  creek south of Atheflon's store and run  it down to . D. McLachian's by a ditch  on Slocan i^tar street. That ditch could  be cut at a cost of a few hundred dollars,  the present course could then be filled  in and all considerable expense later on  would be averted. We merely throw  this out as a hint.  Communication.  I   , We'llsendyou a littleto try,if you lilc*.  SCOTT   &   BOWNE.

It is now generally' known that the  first announcement of the proposed  smelter rates was correct. The zinc  limit is to be reduced from 10 to 8 per  cent., that is all ores carrying over 8  per cent, instead of 10 as formerly, are  to be subject to the penalty, which will  reduce the smelter reduction from !f4 to  3 per ton. The reduction of !f'4, will  stand while lead is ������12 to ������13 in London, Eng. When lead goes over ������13 in  that market smelter- rates will advance  on a per centage until it .reaches ������19,  when   the  old   rates  come   into force.  For woman's guidance is found in the  fact that Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription cures female weakness and the diseases of the delicate womanly organs  which darken the lives'of'so many women with suffering - and sorrow. ��������� That raj;  of light has-penetrated 'many darkened ���������  chambers where.-women moaned in misery, and has guided them out to health  and happiness. -W Favorite Prescription "  is not a tonic, not a palliative, but'a positive cure for--the diseases which /are  peculiar to women. It-gives vigor "and  vitality. It banishes nervousness, headache, and all.the aches which come from  a diseased condition of the womanly  organs. A temperance medicine, it contains neither alcohol nor narcotics.  " I was troubled for three years with ulceration  and female weakness nud niy doctor gave xat  but little relief," writes Mrs. Lulu.-Hunter,'of.  Allciiton, St. Louis Co., Mo. "I saw an advertisement in the paper of Dr. Pierce's Favorite  Prescription. I began the use of it about a year  ago. I took five bottles: of it, and one bottle of  'Golden Medical Discovery,1 and my health,is  better now than it was for years. I have also  recommended these medicines to some of my  friends, who suffered from; female weakness;  aud good results have followed." .   .'  LET TJS* HAVE FAIR PLAY.'  Editor Review:   It   will   be remembered  that  about a year ago our city  authorities   sentenced   a   vagrant to a  term of confinement at Nelson;   that  he was placed in charge of   Mr. Stubbs.  who was then chief of  police, and  that  he gut away from Stubbs   on   the   way  down', and so escaped   the, penalty.   It  will also be remembered  that in  a few  days after a great howl  was raised  in  the city, Messrs. Geo. Waite, A.David  and others leading in it against Stubbs,  demanding   his'  dismissal    forthwith.  That an investigation    was   held,   and  Stubbs was suspended  for- a   few days,  but this was considered insufficient  "by  the howlers, and they still clamored for  Stubb's dismissal and were never appeared' until Stubbs resigned last fall.   Now  we   have   a  parallel   case,  we hear no  word about it, and the public are wond-  ering'why.' Some daysago two w'estend  women were subjected to finesancl placed  in care of Chief Waite   until the   fines  were paid.    A'day or two after they got  on  the O. P. R.   train   in   broad'daylight and left the town   without paying  their fines, although Waite accompanied  them as far- as Three  Forks.   The  surprise is there is  no  investigation  or  demand for one in  the case of Waite.  If Sr, bbs was amenable to censure for  allowing  his  prisoner   to escape,   why  ���������is Waite blameless for allowing his to  take the same course.   The public want  fair play.If Waite is blameless an apology  is surelv due to Stubbs: if he ch'serv-,  ed punishment, why is   Waite allowed  to escape  it?    Where are Mr.   David.  Mr.   Waite   and the other trncliicers of  Stubbs now?   The  public demand   fair  play,   or' ns   the   mayor often  quotes  "Equal  riehts-to   all   and   favors   to  none."    Am I Jight or am   I  wrong   in  damandingan investigation in (hippa.ee  that  all' officials    may    be ' similarly  treated.  JUSTICE.
