We  have not gone to Kalso for the mineral  either as the Kaslo papers come to  Sandon for the Kaslo mineral, but it is  all from mines within three miles of  the city as the crow flies. Who for a  moment will say that Sandon will  never be a large place with all these  resources and a dozen times as many  more undeveloped, when places without a mine worthy of the name within  three miles of them expect to become  large cities from their mineral resources :  Name.

It is safe t< say that taking  also into account tho amount got out  last year and to he shippe 1 this year  the total is not short of 30,000 tons  Here then we have a town with 24  shipping mines in their infancy sending eut over $3,000,000   worth   of  ore.  Wc are advised by the best authority we can consult this ore averages  $100'per ton, the Payne running about  that figure and the Reco $200 per ton,  giving us a grand total of ?3,000,000  realized from Sandon's output. Against this the expenses would be about,  Freight and treatment  $500,000  Duty    800,000  Equipment    250,000  Wages 1,000,000  Total  '$24.789J  Number of Men Employed at Mines  The number of miners employed in  mines that ship from Sandon are divided us follows :  Payne  100  Slocan Star 1  120  Ruth  100  Reco     87  Queen Bess 5   0  Idaho v    40  Last Chance    25  Total $2 050,000  Thus leaving $1,000,000 as the net profits from the mines at Sandon,not from  all over the Slocan country as the Kaslo pipers scour for their mines. If we  had refineries and mints in the country  much of this $300,000 that goes in  duties into the American treasury  would be kept at home; and if we  could only secure nrnrc local capital to  operate the mines, some $750,000 a  year going to owners outside would  circulate at home.  To these facts wc may add another  very strong one and it i= this : That  we arc not getting tho receipts from  expenditures wc will get when many  of the voungor mines arc further developed and when improved trams and  concentrators displace packing mules,  rawhiders, and unnecessary railway  freights. It will all come in time and  so will much of the money now going  Klondyke wny, ns soon as our resources aro better known to the outside  world, a work our new city council  should undertake with vigor as soon as  resources will allow.  LIFE DESTROYING CROUP CURED.  Gents,���������I have used Hagyard's Yellow Oil iu my family for croup and  bronchitis during the past 12 years and  never found it to fail. It cures every  time. I have rccommi nded it to my  neighbors and they keep it on hand.  I would not be without it for any  price.  Mrs. Henry Wardev,  1 Winthrop, Ont.  A public meeting was held in the  Virginia Hall on Monday evening tu  discuss civic matters, and hear the  .views of probable aspirants for the  mayoralty and couneil. In all eighty  people were present, about one half of  whom were possible electors.  Mr. Christie, barrister, was called to  the chair and Mr. Bissell was chosen  secretary. Mr. Christie made a very  suitable reference to the advancement  to this stage of the city's affairs, and  trusted that no matter who might constitute our new council there was a  distinct feeling abroad that economy  and care should be the watchwords. A  mis-step at the start might be 'difficult  to correct in after yearn. 'In fact much  depended on a proper start.  Mr. Cliffe was called on and gave a  pretty full outline of what he conceded should he the proper course for tho  new council. Inclosing his remarks  he said be had told all who approached  him nn the matter, he 'did not desire  the position;but if a substantial major-  jority of r.he expressed n, desire for his  services, he would give them out of  deference to the public wish. He  would not he a candidate under other  circumstances and would not go into  n contest.       ,  Mr. Lovntt said oil name had been  mentioned in connection with the ma-  voraltv, thoneh personally he had but  little ambition in that direction. He  however, was fr������e to neknowlcdsre a  mark of that kind was a crent honor.  He would not cnnvnis in anv hole or  corner wiv for sunpnrt. The first con-  sideratinn of the new council should be  the health of the city, and stringent  retrnlntiom to that end should he adopted. He believed in payinsr the mayor  and aldermen adequate salaiies; no  men should be asked to work for the  entire community for nothintr. They  could not give elvie, affairs the requisite attention without payment, for  time. Our by-laws should be ns liberal  ns possible, allowing our miners and  industrial population as much freedom  ns possible. Did not think our license  and similar receipts would nesufficient,  to run the council without direct taxation.  Our school interests also needed attention and financial, support, and  more, especially as the town crew-- and  our school population increased. We  should have, streets nnd sidewalks and  they mignt necessitate borrowing  money, Onr fire department should  also be encouraged, benuse of its neces-  cesity in the plnce.  Mr. Hunter concurred in what Mr.  Cliffe said in reference to the needs of  the future. Early debt often became  a serious matter. He was not a candidate.  Mr. Grimmett was not   a   candidate  for any position.   He had a close connection with the   move   for   incorporation from the start, but now that   the  place was incorporated,   that   connection ceased.    In  the   middle   of  last  summer a number of the business men  of the place felt  we   had   heen freely bled by the government in taxation  in different forms and got nothing   for  it in return.   To reverse this order  of  things and keep our revenues for   distribution at home' incorporation   was  applied for and got under an act making provision for such legislation, passed last session of the   House.      [Here  the si eaker went   into   the  necessary  conditions for incorporation.and traced  the application through until the place  was gazetted, most   of which   has   already appeared in the Review.] There  were wise ocres   who  said   the  place  could not secure incorporation because  of titles to properties but the   fact   incorporation was secured was   the  best  answer to this all'. " Mr.  Ciiffe- struck  tho   right   key  when  he    suggested  economy in the   manogoment   of   our  affairs.   We had the   necessary  talent  to make a proper council.   The mayor  should get a grant not exceeding $500  a year.   Believed the creek should be  converted into a   main   sewer  with a  stree  planked overhead.   The way our  school had to be run for the want   of  funds was a disgrace, and   would have  to be cured by tho first   council.    Our  fire department should  be   improved,  and though we had a volunteer force,  the chief should bo paid.  Mr. Atherton said he never made* a  speech in his life, and could not make  one if he tried.  Messrs. Switzer, Brown, Kclsen, A.  Crawford and others declined to speak  when called on.  Mr. David contended that favoritism,  old acquaintance and the like should  cut no figure. The object was to get the  man best man possible for the place. A  might be a good tailor and a poor wood  cutter, a successful merchant and a  very indifferent public man. Believed  in an unpaid eouncil, and a pledge to  economy exacted from all candidates  before election. The expenses of the  lirdt vof������r should be met as far as possible by licenses and the like revenues.  The merchants of the place should be  protected by proper by-laws. There  was not a year that hundreds of thousands of dollars were not taken out of  place by outside dealers who never  contributed a cent to our support. 'Wc  should see to it that neither sentiment  nor feelings of good will weighed in  our selection of representatives, but  that the men who would best handle  our affairs and do the place most credit  were chosen.  Mr. Harris was loudly called called  for but he declined to speak.  Mr. Buckley was not a speaker but  felt old residence, business success and  interest in the place were essentials in  a mayor and Mr. Atherton .met all  these requisites. >  J. R Cameron said he was. not a  candidate for any office.1 His experience in public matters was not one of  money to him, and it was a living and  something more he was after at present. He believed in rigid economy.  We had the necessary material resident and should select good and careful men.  After votcs,of thanks to the chairman and Mr. Harris for the use of the  hall, the meeting was brought to a  close.  Tbe Civic Elections.  At, 12 o'clock Mr. Sandilauds, R. O...  announced in the school house he was  rea. y to receive nominations for the  offices of mayor and aldermen for the  City ,, of Sandon. He also intimated  that he could receive no nominations  until the necessary deposits were put  up, and the law provided for an expenditure not to exceed $100, to be  borne equally by all the'" candidates  nominated. Then followed the nominations : ���������  E. R. Atherion Mayor.  S.JA. Mighton Alderman.  R. J. Broddy  A. Crawford "  R. Cunning "  C. D. Hunter "  J. W. Switzer "  These were declared elected by acclamation. Messrs. A. David and M.  Kn rlin were also nominated but  the returning officer declared them ineligible in that they had not furnished  him with a statement 01' the property  on which,they'qualified. Against the  dcision Mr. David offered ajformal protest on the spot and said he would  fight it out.  With Scissors 'and Pen.  Episcopal Services for Sandon.  To the Editor of The Mining Review:  The Ven. S.'W. Pentreath, Archdeacon of Columbia, visited Sandon  Tuesda\ week and held a meeting in  the evening in the Virginia hall, kindly loaned* by Mr. Harris, for the purpose ot' organiza- ion and arranging for  regular services of the Church of England. Mr. Lawrence was appointed  secretary. After singing and prayer  the Aichdeacon explained the object  of the meeting, and it was on motion  resolved that there be an "evening  service at 7.30 _ in Virginia hall, on  the first and third Sundays in each  month. The Archdeacon stated that  the Rev. C. F. Yates would be stationed at either Slocan City > or New  Denver, and that "he woul:f take New-  Do., ver and Sandon on "tho above Sundays, and -Slocan and Nakusp on alternate Sund.iys. It was necessary to  get a guarantee from each of these  places. Miss Skinner and Mrs. Pearson volunteered to solieii, a guarantee  from tho church people in Sandon.  Mr. Y. Sewell. accepted the appointment of organist and choir master.  The first service will be held 'on Sunday evening Jan. 16th.  [With reference to the foregoing we  have only to say that it is a mistake  to attempt to establish a third Protestant congregation here where there is  not room for two. Had the Episcopalians shown energy at the commencement of the town and placed  a clergymen here, they would be entitled to a sympathy it will now be  difficult to secure. ���������Ed. Review.]  Germany's Acquisition in China of  Donbtful Yalue.  Th-jir Bay is a Poor One���������It Threatens  .   to be a  Source   of Expense Instead  of Revenue.  Held for  Uttering  a  Bill.  Raised  Bank  John Hallem has been getting himself into serious trouble. It appears  on Monday morning at 1 very early  hour he was asked at Pearson & Fisher's to change a $10 bill. He stepped  into Allie Stirritt's house next door,  bought some drinks and got change  for the bill, in the change being one  five. On returning to Pearson & Fishers, he handed in a one Dominion Bill  raised to a $5. Mr. Pearson showed  him it was a bad bill. He said he got  it from AUio and would go over, buy  drinks again and get her to take it  back. Now she contends she gave him  a good 00. He contends he got the  raised bill from her, but the damaging  feature against him was in trying to  pass it when he was advised it was bad  instead of taking it back and endeavoring to make it good. He was committed for trial. Mr. Christie prosecuted and Mr. Grimmett defended the  prisoner, who is out on $2,000 bail.  Sandon OreShipments.  The following is a list of ore shipments over the K. & S. from Sandon  for the week ending Jan. 13 :  j   MINE.       l TONS.

Literary Society  "Echo" which will be read at the regular session Monday evening.  London, Jan 8.���������The disclosure of  details and the torms of acquisition of  Kiao Chau by Germany;.has momentarily scared the British public which,  however, now regards Germany's move  with all the more equanimity as in  the opinion of persons intimately acquainted with China, Kiao Chau bay  is of little commercial value and will  only be a source of expense to Germany. If the harbor had been commercially valuable, it is pointed out it  would long ago have been made a  treaty port, ' but it is said to be completely overshadowed by the close  proximity of flourishing Che Foo.  The province of Shang Tung, it is added, though agricultural is hardly able  to support itt population, while the  strategic value of Kiao Chau can be  inferred by the fact of Russia, in spite  of the Cassini treaty,al!owing Germany  to occupy it. Altogether Kiao Chau  bay is not likely to be a bod of roses.  The British government maintains a  sphinx-like reserve regarding Chinese  affairs, and there are no further revelations ot her intentions beyond the  statement made by the Manchester  Guardian, January 3, and cabled at the  time, which was unquestionably the  official view of the situation.  As a leading diplomat remarked recently : "The Statesmen of Berlin and  St. Petersburg must be strangely unobservant if they imagine that either  Great Britain, tho United States or  Japan will allow them the monopoly  of the plums." It is amusing to notice  Russia and France courting Japan.  Both of them are in deadly fear of her  forming an offensive and defensive' alliance wit 1 Great Britain. As a matter of fact, there are things much more  unlikely than the eventual alliance of  Great Britain,, China and Japan, and  the contingency would acquire still  more probability should Great Britain,  as it now seems certain, guarantee a  Chinese loan. At the present moment,  so far as Great Britain is concerned,  the loan is the kernel of the whole  question. It is not believed that  the Chinese loan, if completed, will  effect silver, as the money is required  to pay the Japanese war indemnity  and would not be sent to China.  Therefore, silver could be utilized in  part payment.  The stock exchange here continues  to be undisturbed. It is believed that  current events will eventually be for  the development of trade. The Spectator is much pleased with the announcement that the United States is  inclined to support the British demand  that no exclusive privileges be, granted  to any individual power in China, and  says : "Nothing short or a direct menace cr aggression would attempt, any  combination of the continental powers  to face the whole Anglo-Saxon race,  united and resolved."

SuBhCiumoM $2.00 Per Yeah"  Strictly in Abvnace.  SANDON'S RESOURCES.  ,We   give   elsewhere   statistics   that  should open the eyes of the country as  to the stability of Sandon. .. There are  some   who   pass through, and   others  who' live, in surrounding towns, that are  disposed, to ; sneer at.. the  place,   be-  . cause  "it is built in a gulch", and declare 'it   can never  amount  to much.  There, of course, are people who part  their  hair  in' the   middle���������who can  never see below  the surface and allow  external  appearances, , to warp   their  prejudices.      The statistics,   however,  carry their own argument, and are the4  all important  matter   to men   whose  judgement is worth considering.    The  statistics, show that  during   the  year  lations between outlays and dividends  will materially change.  Though the year, locally, has not  been a good one, owing to a prevailing stringency, the fact that the C. P.  R. has more than doubled its passenger traffic issuing over g,ooo tickets  against less .than 5,000 the previous  year, has its own significance.  When we add to this again die circumstance that $182,370 has been  expended on new buildings to say  nothing of improvements on older  ones, it must be conceded by an unprejudiced mind, that Sandon has not  only a mineral backing (hat will bring  it to a foremost rank, notwithstanding  its "gulch location" and as some of  the papers jeeringly say, absence of  sunlight, there is also an enterprise  in its people that will r-arry it through  to the front rank. With our city government now in the hands of go-  ahead, enterprising representatives a  new impetus will be given to local  improvements that will work its own  advantages.  further than that interference is undo lirable. If it' can be done, by a  m .tual agreement between both parties  ��������� the government and the express  companies���������it would be well for- the  go\eminent through their'railway mail  clerks to handle the express business  ol the country, as it could be done  ni :ch less expensively than at present.  On most lines of road, the mail clerks  a.c never loaded with duties, and the  ad lition of the express matter would  not give them moie than they could  handle, lopping off the salaries of tlie  ex ra man, to lesson the expiess rates.  This is one leform for which the couu:  try is loudly calling.  _/5Vi It is a painful  ^-'vVu'lit to see an  ~~j^<r^f otherwise   robust  \>\yiiw lnan limping  Sg^ along on s. eiutch  1 <jil or cane, a sufferer  GOVERNMENT CONSISTENCY.  there were 24,789^ tons of ore  shipped from this camp.' The are not  made up by adding the shipments of  the whole country around, as do the  Kaslo papers, to show the output of  the'.'Kaslo, mines." To be honest, we  may.say the output of the Noble Five,  properly,speaking, belongs to Cody,  and that of the Queen Bess to .Three  Forksj'as well as those ofa couple of  smaller, mines to those places, but they  are-the shipments of Sandon and as  such we give them.  Th'e statistics of employees, too, are  very eloquent in, .themselves, and show  that, about, 1,200 miners are working  night, and day in mines tributary to  Sandon and spend most 'of what they  do 'spend in the city." For the, reason  that "many of them' are   single,   their  'H\ 'J.  . 1/       '      f       * ' '  operations t do, not circulate as much  money in the place as a'corresponding  number might spend in other places,  but none the less they show the magnitude of the mining industry of this  section, and its vast richness awaiting  further capital for development. As  ' some of our larger mines, such as the  Payne, the Star and the Ruth are  owned by private companies, who are  notxdm'pelled" by' law to publish all  the details of their operations, we  Cannot give our statement of dividends  as a fact, but it is made up from the  best   information, we   can. get,  and  shows that Sandon mines have vielded  }' ������������������-'.   . >u ��������� ���������..'

Of course   the   circumstance   in  favor  of  Manitoba  in   a  comparison is in the'fact that the   receipts of agriculture   in" that province  are held by the local population, while  those of mining  around Sandon  are  largely', as in' the case   of the  Payne,  the   Star and  the_ Ruth,    held    by  outsiders.     The Reco  and  some of  the smaller mines are  a   marked   exception which is very advantageous to  the city.  The figures have another very appealing' argument���������that   British' and  not .American capital   should be invested here, and that residents should  by government be aided more liberally  with means to develop their holdings.'  Some   ,may think  that  as there is a  great disparity between the number of  miners employed,*,the output and the,  dividends of the several mines,  there  must be  some  good   management in  some   of them   and   bad  in  others.  Though this is always the case in mining camps as it is in farming, mercantile or other operations, the figures we  have given do not prove  that contention  as there is  a great difference   in  the  value of  the ores   of the   several  mines, there are no two of them in the  same  stage of development,   and   no  two of them with   the   same   facilities  for handling  their outputs as regards  trails,, tram's  and concentrators.    The  mine   that   has  the  poorest relative  showing, may be the  most efficiently  managed of the whole number.  In'this connection we may, however, say .the Star people are making  no eflort to get the best results from  expenditures by stoping their best and  most improved sections of lead , they  are keeping development well in advance of stoping so that at any time  they wish' they can have for a time  much better results from the same  labor,  has  it)  That was u  pretty cheeky piece of  business,    whoever  inspired   it,   collector Sproat, of New Denver,   or the  government���������we refer to 'the raid on  Sandon's business men   last week  for  six months'.business licenses.    Sandon  was Gazetted a city  some weeks ago,  and   is,     therefore,     relieved     from  payments  of   this  character   to   the  government,   as the city is thrown   on  its   own   resources  for   the   mainten  ance of   local  government.      It may  be   that   tlnough a   technicality,   as  tHe   city  has   no,  revenue-collecting  machinery   till   its  council   holds its  first meeting,   the government  is  permitted to operate in this way ; but the  operation smacks   too much of an un-  principled pettifogger, to be the act of  a   respectable government.    Swooped  down on as they were before  our first  civic elections were held,   the people  felt they were  insufficiently protected  to resist the hold-up, and most, if not  all, of them   paid   their $5.00,   a six-  months'  license,   netting   the   government some $400.    Had   the  demand  been for  a   months'   payment   before  our council was in fair working oider,  but  few would  have thought much of  the petty theft, and allowed it to pass;  but as a half-year's collection has been  made and a revenue   taken   from   the  city on which in part it expects to subsist, the matter will have  to be looked  after. '   <  In all such cases where hotel licenses are paid in advance to a government, and incorporation takes place  after, a refund is asked for and invariably made to the municipality.  No doubt the same will be the case in  this instance,' and in the face of the  prospect, where was the sense in putting the country to the expense of a  collector's fees? It appears to us that  if the government were as watchful in  all other matters as they were in this  the people would have more public  fmprovements for the monies raised.  It is now nearly a year since the  government placed a sum in the estimates for a lock-up in Sandon, and  nothing has since come of it, on the  plea that it is inexpedient for the government to make an expenditure in  the place in view of its separation and  civic independence, notwithstanding  the very large revenue the place has  yearly given the government. In  the face of this plea for withholding a  voted expenditure, they set to work  and fleece our business people after  the act for incorporation is declared  passed by their own hands. The one  act side by side with the other is a  strange assurance of governmental  consistency, to say the least of it.  One thing the electors should see to  to-day  in  justice   to   all,  is that   the  representation    at   the  new   council  board is properly distiibu'ed over  the  city. ,   Even    though   the 'best    men  should all reside and have their interests in   one portion   of the place,   the  aldermen ' should be chosen   from   all  sections of the place, and all interests  represented as fully  as possible.    Of  necessity  there will have   to  be three  'committees at least:    Finance, Board  of Works, and Health and Relief, and  three good men   should be chosen for  the chairmanship of these, as on their  ,'houldcis will most of the work of the  council fall.     Another   thing   to look  after  will   be     the   selection   of   a  competent   clerk.        lie    should  be  thoroughly conveisant  with 'all municipal   usages, all law relating   to civic  institutions,   and ever have   the   work  of   the   council    so    prepared    that  it  would   be   taken   hold   of at  the  proper time,   and that nothing  would  be overlooked-until too late.     In fact  if a studious, careful, systematic clerk  is chosen   the running of the affairs of  the   corporation   may be   made   very  smooth fiom the very start.  /   ^/>v\     vlt'tij m!U1   ^ho   keeps  /   ^A    V *"*  Wood   pure  / \    Y and rich.

Government  control   of   railways   sounds   very nice   on   a public  platform,   but it is worse   than   tooth  pulling in operation.    The  explanation is this : That under party government the management and offices are  invariably filled   by government hacks  ���������they are never on other railways, as  is the case   with the   C. P. R.   for instance,   for   their knowledge   of railroading  or capacity for business,   but  simply for what they have done for the  party in power.

FREIGHTS  REDUCED.-  The C. P. R- Voluutarily Cuts the Rate  From Eastern   Canada.    , ,  'The Canadian Pacific Railway has  voluntarily made material, reductions  in freight charges on commodities  - shipped from Eastern Canada to the  Kootenay country. The reductions are  thoRe which the. O.P. P., at the time of  obtaining the Crow's Nest charter,  agreed to makewhen the Crow's lNest  line was completed to Kootenay river.  Under the agreement'the reductions  ���������would not be in effect for many months  to come, but the company concluded  that they'should go into effect January  1,1898.  The reductions are from 10 to 33J  per cent, and some of the commodities'  affected "are agricultural implements,  cordage, felt, household furniture, iron,  glass,' points and oils, building paper,  ���������wire, woodenwarr-, coal oil, green and  fresh fruits, rope etc.  Messrs T.

' According to the New York Engineering and Mining Journal, ^India continues to buy silver on a large'scale,  notwithstanding ' the limitations enforced by a year of bad crops,and  famine in certain districts. The shipments from London to the British East  Indies "for the .eleven mouths ending  with November, are officially given .at  ������6,017,165rthis,y>ear1> against ������4,529,624  in' 1896, showing an increase of 32.8  per cent; and at the lower prices of the  metel-which," have {prevailed this year,  the increase'in (ihe actual quantity of  silver must have been 40 per cent, at  least.; u   ,   ���������' ,.  On'the other hand, the shipments  from London to China this year have  been only ������401,597, or ������358,054 less  than in i896. This has been partly  made up " by larger exports from San  Francisco directly, and by shipments'  from Australia. Nearly all.the silver  from the' Broken Hill mine" how-'goes  to China instead of London.  It is probably not saying too much  to prophecy that the time'"is not far  distant when British Columbia will  also ship refined silver direct to India  and China.  - J. Pitie, who leftB-ORsland last July  for the Klondyke, Jb buck again, after  three months spent in ��������� Dawson City.  Mr. Pitre was on a private mi sion,and  had no intention p-f prospecting, - but  he got a good idea of the country  while .. way.  He started from Dawson December  2, and reached Sea ttlc January 2, so  that he was just a month on the frdadr  He returned at onct; to Rossland. Mr.  Pitre says that thcie is little of starvation along the Kloxdyke. There will  be a shortage of supplies, perhaps, but  so.many.people have left that there  will be enough to carry all who remain  through the winter,  That gold'in immense quantities is  found in the creeks along tlie Klondyke  Mr* Pitre admits," but he deprecates  the tremendous rush 'that is sure to occur next spring. Th'j.-ewill be, nothing for thrm to do, and unless they get  out speedily intense and widespread  suffering must result.  Mr. Pitre says-tint Billy Perdue,who  tiiok in'somc 80 head of catfle for himself and P. Bums, met with  bad   luck,  The band of steers was driven over the  pass,   and   subsequently   slaughtered.  Part was coached by the river side and  a big raft was built, on which Mr. Perdue started down tbe   river   with   the  rest of his beef, but he passed Dawson  City about 3 o'clocli   in  the morning,  and was unible to make a landing,   although he offered a.  thousand   dollars  to any many man on   the   shore   who  would get a line out to him.     He   fin-  .ally, succeeded in   making i a, landing  about 30 miles btlow Dawson, and the  beef was still there  when   Mr;   Pitre,  left,.'for it had .been- found 'impracticable to get it' up to the town,   as pack  horses   brought  So   an   hour.     Beef,  when Mr Pitre left, was selling   at. $1  per pound for, forequarters   and   $1.25  pc-r pound for hindquarters, but it was  not much in demand at' those   prices,  since there was plenty of  plain   grub  and no groat quantity of money.
