H. Elliott.  We regret to announce the sad death  of Jos. II. Elliott by drowning  in Tiout  Lake on Dec. 31st.   Mr. Elliot t^was for  some years a resident of this city, being  mostof the in the employ of J.M.Harris  in connection with the electric lightsta-  tion.   Several month ago he left Sandon  and went to Revelstoke to work in  the  electric light plant  there, and   later.it  uppers entered the employ of   the   telephone  company   at Trout Lake.   The  particulars of his death are very meagre  the mere mention of the fact is-all that  ascertained on account of the difficulty  In-obtaining   news  from  that district.  We leanv however, that he was stretching a wire anrLwas crossing on a boom,  ������������������when he lost hia   footing   and   fell into  the.water. His brother was telegraphed  for and search for   recovering   the body  instituted, but  after  grappling in the  lake   for several   days without success  all hope of obtaining his   remains were  abandoned.     His   parents   in Ontario  were   notified and his brother, M. V7.,'  stayed around the scene of the disaster  in hopes of  securing  his   body to se'rid  east for burial.   Mr. Elliott was an industrious young man of 30 years of- age  and a consistent member of the Methodist church.   MemonV servicesfor him  will be conducted by Rev. R. J. Mcln-  tyre next Sunday. ,   |  Thos. McGuigan,' of the American  Boy, returned Sunday from a business  trip to Spokane.  The curling club will at lea������t send  three and possibly-four rinks to the  bonspiel to-be held at Rosslandl  Mr; Fowler, who was in charge of the  bank hore during the vacation of Mr.  Scott, lett for the coast on Monday.  I The reading room in'the basement of  Methodist church is open Tuesday,  Thursday and Satursday evenings from  7 to 11.  The high wind tin Monday night  brought down the Noble Five and Lucky  Jim slides, the two largest that occur  annually.  R. B. McCammon left on Monday for  Grand Forks, where he will assume a  position in the C. P. R. station in the  gateway city.  The Ivanhoe tram ran away lustSatur-  day knocking off a couple of buckets before it could be stopped. The damage  done was slight. '  Mr. G. W.-Hughes came in town nn  Thursday and leaves'today for Ottawa  whiM-e he will meet tlie "other- "delegates.  The snow fails slowly, softly down  "Upon the street and yard,  , "But, Oh! the people of our town  They fall down swift and hard!  -Tho looal hockpy club receive'tl-'their  new uniforms on Tuesday.    The colore'  are sweater bright red with white sleeves  and white trousers, an' exact imitation  of the Victorias of Winnipeg.  Next Sabbath, '.ran! 18r.li. will be  home mission day at the Presbyterian  church. .The sermons morning and  evening will be for home missions and  there will be a special .offering for that  week.  Jas. Hill returned Monday from tlie  Lardeau country, where he had been engaged the past four month on the construction workof the   Silver Cup tram.  A Duluth iron manufacturer is in the  province in quest of hematite and- rnag-  natite iron propsrties, and if a'suitable  class of ore can be securedin the way of  price, terms, proximity to coal fields  and railway transportation he will undertake the establishmentof large smelting and iron foundry works on thecoast.  \  Miss Flewelling, who has been spending a few days visit with here sister,  Mrs. S. Towgood, left Monday for New  Brunswich, where she will wed a clergyman of that province.  A public meeting has been called for  this evening to discuss civic affairs and  pass a resolution on the lead question  strengthening the caii6e of the delegation now on its way to Ottawa.  A fierce northwest gale struck town on  Monday night and made the hills echo  with the crashing of falling timbers and  rocked many houses without doing any  damage. The.wind caused a number of  slides to come down, but fortunately no  damage was done beyond blocking up  the K. & S. railway.  Mr. J. M, Harris has  just   received  word from Victoria to the effect that the  appeal of Mike Kerlin against   the   decision    given   himself a   few   months  ago by the courts in the question of'title  to the   townsite of "Sandon''bad   been  dropped. This will inall probability end  the question for all time   to coine.     It  appears that when Mr. Harris won   his  decision a few months ago, Mike Kerlin,  through his attorny, applied for an   appeal against the   decision   which   was  granted 'providing/? 150 was deposited to  carry forward the appeal,   with   ninety  days grace wherein to to make tlie stipulated deposit.   As the money   was  not  forth coming on the 5th inst., the   time  allotted for it   payment, the  case -was  dropped.  Mr. Scott, manager of the Bank of  the Bank of Commerce here, u bo with  Mrs. Scott have been spending several  wet ks in San Eancisco and other cities  in California, returned to town last  Sunday evening.'  The resolutions passed by the almost  entire Kootenays the past week in favor  ofa 'higher duty on lead must make  pleasant reading to poor Smith Curtis  and Bhow him how much public opinion  he misrepresents.  The St. Andrews Presbterian church  will hold sei vices Sunday in-Pitts' store  at 1] a. m: and 7.30 p.m. Sabbath  school and Bible class at 2.30 p. m.  Prayer meeting Tuesday evening at 8  o'clock.   All are cordially welcome.  No train came in or went out last Saturday on either railway and the K, & S.  was blocked up again on Tuesday. Once  the first snow falls t' e Slocan is pro-  pared for almost any kind of train service until it disappears'in the spring.  I Mr. and Mrs. C. Cliffe on New lrear's  day entertained seventeen Pioneer news  carriers. After partaking of a bounteous  | supper, Mrs. Cliffe played and sang for  them and they sang solos, etc., to their  hearts' content, and few had greatei enjoyment that day than this happy party  of newsboys.���������Soo Pioneer.  The Presbyterians  are   now   holding  services in Pitts'   vacant  store,   which  Mr. J. M. Harris has very kindly placed  at their disposal. < Since the  great   fire  ���������the congregation has been   worshipping  in Mr. Alex. Crawford's hall, but owing  to unusualheavy fall of snow this winter .Mr. Crawford does hot feel that it is  safe to continue the services there.   The  psator nnd   board  of   managers  desire  thus publicly to express   their grateful  thanks to Mr. Crawford for so  long   in  giving tho free use of his   hall  for  services. ,.Tliis.privilege has been indeed a  great boon to the  congregation,   especially in yrew of the heavy   financial   responsibility which the loss of the building entailed.        ���������;. .��������� -:    , . ���������  J     Mr. John son, of the Spokane Smelt-'  I ing Co., is in town to look up contracts  for zinc and lead ores in this district.  Next Monday is nomination" day and  the same lethargy is .experienced in  council matters. A couple of weeks ago  some interest seemed to be taken in the  coming election, a meeting was held to  consider possible candidates, but some  of those in attendance thought the trend  of the gathering too much one-sided to  suit their fancy and consequently let  the matter drop.  The silver-lead delegates are   leaving  for   Ottawa .this  week   to be .in -attendance at the conference with theCabi-'  neton the 12th. Themembersof thedele-  gation are Geo. Alexander, G. D.Potter,  J. J. Campbell", G. O. Buchanan, G. VV.  Hughes, T. G. Blackstock, Senator A.A.  Tbibaudeau and J. L. Retallack, chairman.    Mr. Blackstock and Senator Thi-  baudoau were appointed in place of Jas.  Cronin, who could notattend; they will  represent   the   St. Eugene  and   North  Star mines and meet tho western delegates in Ottawa.   The delegation will go  straight through to Montreal   and con-"  fer with the lead   manufacturers' of that  city and outline the course to beadopted  at the conference with the government.  New Denver in Line.  TJie   citizens   of New Denver held a  public   meeting a few" days   ago to endorse the resolution  of the silver-lead  miners   and   repudiate   statements   of  Smith Curtis.   Over fifty  were present  at the meeting, the object of which was  explained to them by W. S. Drewry and  the' following   resolutions were unanimously carried:   "Resolved, 1st, that  this meeting endorses wholly the resolution passed at the meeting of the silver-lead mine owners of East and West  Kootenay, held at Sandon on Dec. 10th,  1902.   2nd, that the use of the speeches  made by Smith Curtis, M.L.A., of Ross-  Isnd, in opposing the request of theSan-  don   resolution,   is denounced   on the  grounds that Mr. Curtis   does   not, and  never has represented a silver-lead mining poplation, and speaks  in ignorance  of the wishes of such population," This  resolution was  forwarded   to Ottawa, to  show the   Dominion   government   that  populace of the affected.districts are in  entire accord with  the mine-owners in  their request for a higher tariff on lead.

The Mining Review.  SATURDAY, JANUARY 10, 1903.  Premier Prior has briefly outlined his  policy, which is a progressive   one  and  will meet with   the  approval of almost  the entire province. The premier thinks  it is about-time tho expenditures were  kept within the receipts of revenue, and  is   of   the  opinion   that   the province  should stop borrowing loans except for  specific purposes, such as railway development of the country.   He is in favor  of collecting all back   taxes  on government lands, etc., and is in hearty accord  with the Minister of Finance in hiB endeavor , to  collect all arrears.   He believes   it   is   the  bounden  duty of the  government to formulate a railway policy for the development of the country  and to give assistance where necessary.  Such assistance, where  given,   to  take  the form of land grants under such restrictions and  conditions   aa will guarantee the promotion of settlement and  developing    the    country    intersocted  thereby.   The premier is in favor of as-  '.'. sisting a railway from Vancouver to the  north, as it would be means of oponing  up for enterprise and settlement a large  area rich in mineral, timber  and  agricultural lands.     The  Ccasl-Kootenay  road he considers a grave necessity, and  .will do all he can to secure its construction as early as  possible.   The   system  of mining taxation is to be revised and  the two per cent, is likely to   be  abolished, as it is considered an injustice to  the many low grade properties and the  sentiment  of   the  investing public is  against it.    The   use  of   traps  he considers necessary to the salmon  fishery,  and to enable the  provincial  canneries  to compete successfully with those of the  Piiget Sound.   On   the  question of the  influx of Chinese into the   province the  attitude of the premier will   meet with  hearty approval   by Jail opposed to the  Mongolian   invasion.   He   strongly repudiates the recent action of the Dominion government in disallowing the  act  excluding them passed last session, and  it is the intention of the premier to re-  enact the measure as soon as the House  meets.   Premier Prior with Hon.' W. W.  B. Mclnnes are now On their to Ottawa  to interview the Federal authorities on  many questions affecting British Columbia.   The most important of these will  be the trap fishing, Chinese exclusion  and the re-enactment of  the Natal Act.  The Dominion government contend that  that it  has . already legislated  on   the  Mongolian question and claim the pro-  cincial legislature has no power to exclude Chinese.   This phrase of the question ia now a matter of   law and will be  decided   by the  courts of   the country.  While in Ottawa the premier will bring  before  the  Cabinet  the unfair terms!  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 has meant  an easy and natural return to  health.  We'llsendyou a little, to try, if you lilt*.  SCOTT   &   BOWNE,       Chemists,  Toronlo  given British Columbiaby the Dominion  government in the cost of administration of justice, as this province pays annually $2,000,000 into the Dominion  treasury which it does not get back,  and strong reasons will be advanced  to secure the consessions asked for on  behalf of the province. The premier is  assured of a good working majority when  the House meets and trill do all in his  power to promote the welfare of the  province and enact such legislation as  will meet with the approval of the investing public.  "When I can't see danger there is no  danger." That's the logic of tha ostrich  which hides its head and exposes its  body to the hunter. There are not a  few people who seem ,te have gone to  the ostrich to learn logic. The most  dangerous enemies of humanity are the  enemies which can't be seen, the disease  breeding microbes which infect the  blood. It is harder to get the. microbe  out of the blood than to keep it out, but  Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery  does both, by purifying the blood  and then keeping  it pure.  If   there  are  They are having a hot old time in the  Socialist fold-in the bye-clectiOn for the  Burrard constituency for the Dominioii  parliament, which lakes place   on Feb.  4th. ' The   Conservatives   have   wisely  decided   not   to   put a candidate in the  field; the Liberals   have nominated R.  G. Macpherson and the Labor party have  two candidates, caused  by a difference  of   opinionjeommon  in that body.   Dr.  Mclnnes who was   looked   upon  as the  standard   bearer   of   that   party,   was  turned   down   by the Vancouver wing,  who nominated Chris Foley instead,and  Mclnnes has nominated   himself to get  even by splitting "up   the   vote.   Foley  held   his   first meeting in Vancouver a  few days ago and spoke  chiefly on   the  Mongolian question, which is to be the  main issue of the campaign.    While no  extiemist, he charged  the Federal government as being false to its pledges on  the exclusion of Chinese in British Columbia and   enjoined a  strong protest  against the lassitude of the government  in connection with   the  alien labor enacted a few -years ago, which he claimed  was not enforced.   He expressed   himself during his  speech in   favor of admitting.mining machinery into Canada  free of duty, and   at   the  conclusion of  his address the fun  began.   A socialist  took the platform and   announced that  thers would be no redress for   the labor  men until the present wage system was  abolished.   This caused a great uproar,  and the socialist element in.the hall became 83 demonstrative that  the   police  were   telephoned   for, but before they  arrived the lights were turned down aud  the meeting broke op in confusion.

Moss, New  London, Stanly Co., N.C. "He gave me medicine which helped me for a short time. In the  winter of 1895 I got worse than I had ever been.  Mv tonsils were enlarged and my neck swollen  all out of shape; my throat was sore and I" could  not cure it. My husband went for the doctor,  but he gave me no encouragement. He helped  me n little, but it did not last long. He attended  mc for twelve months, when I keard of a lady  whose condition was like mine, who waa takinjr  your medicine and was getting well. So I se-  cured some of the medicine and began taking it  In one week I was able to do my cookinr. When  I began taking the medicine I could 101 up only  a few minutes at a tim������, and I eonld r������st or sleep  only a little while at a time. My throat was so  sore at times I could not even swallow sweet  milk, and my tonsils were full of littla eatioe  sores. My left side was swollen out of shape  and I could hardly get my breath. The doctor  said I would not get well, but throe bottles of  Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery, three  bottles of his ' Pellets,' three bottles of Dr. Sage's  Catarrh Remedy and the use of salt water did  Uie work and cured me."  Dr. Pierce's Pleasant Pellets cure constipation and its consequences.  It remained for Smith Curtis, the  blabant member for Rossland, to sound  the only note of discord against there-  solutions passed by the silver-lead men.  Without attending a meeting���������his presence not being required in any event���������  j he makes a speech and urges the adoption of a bounty on lead, and decries the  eruptions on  the   tariff revision so urgently sought by the  skin,   boils,   pirn-   producers.     Whatever   caused  him   to  pies, sores or other ,  sign9   of   impure J take such a course it hard to conjecture.  lie has shown himself totally ignorant  of any knowledge of tho matter and does  not present himself to many in the favorable light of a successful parliamentarian. Bis remarks have only been loo  eagerly grasped by the paint mixers of  eastern Canada to endeavor lo convince  the government of tt diversity of opinion  among the mining men, and   that only  a small portion of them favor a higher  duty on lead. It is hard to say what  the result of the propaganda now being  conducted in theeast will be, but many  think���������and it is hoped so���������it will be of  little avail when the mine owners lay  their cause before the government. They  will be able to show a unamity of action  and contradict any false impression that  may prevail with the government as a  result of the campaign conducted in the  east based on the ^imprudent and uncalled for remarks of Smith Curtis.  ^^JE"' We������a'e FJwsplioiSiaeX  The Great English Remedy.

The unexpected happened in Ontario  on Wednesday when the Ross govorn-  carried the thuee bye-election.1! held in  that province. Thia gives the Liberals  a working majority of four, which is  small but suflicient.  Marconi's system of wireless telegraphy threatens, to revolutionize the  cable and telegraphic world. At Sidney a few days ago, the wizard announced that ho had contracted to send  messages across the Atlantic at ten  cents per word, and added that before  long his system would bo so cheap that  it would supercede the post oflice.  The death of Senator Armand gives  the Liberals control of the Senate. The  government can now bring up any measure without fear of its being rejected  in the upper House after it has passed  the Commons. The Tory Seriate was a  thorn in tho side of the Grit government ever since it assumed control, and  has been a safeguard for the country  against jobbing legislation.  Mining companies and others in London are trying to form a strong association to secure better inducements and  legislation from the local government.  British Columbia mining stocks have  suffered severely on the London Exchange the past year of'so, and the mere  mention of the mines of this province is  enough to satisfy the British investor.  The government certainly ought to do  something to encourage English capital  to open up our rich resources, but the  first thing it has to do to .secure attention is to remodel our mining  laws as a change is badly needed.  Then why not get tlie best to be had' in the  country for the money. An immense stock  of the best goods and latest patterns now on  hand.     You will be convinced by calling on  J.

The action of the Nelson Trades and  Labor Council in endorsing the resolution.of the Sandon mine owners, is highly commendable. After looking into the  facts of the case that labor organization  came to the conclusion that the miners  would bebenelittetl nearly as much as  the owners in the legislation sought,  and adopted a number of strong resolutions which were immediately forwarded  '.to'.Ottawa. Mr. Galliher, M. P., will  now be able to present a strong case before the government, and bIiow united  action of all concerned in load mining  and the welfare of the country.

Toininyrot and non-  sontHi are all right once in a while, but a  continual rehash of the garbage is sure  to disgust in the erd, and there are  many in'��������� Sandon , disgusted .with', the  vapouiings and idiocracies of the ape-  ing blue print and its blubbering editor,  who has no .mind of his own or the least  idea of principle.

Retallack haB been figuring on  the smelter rates charges in Canada and  . the United States; the former were always thought to be more excessive, but  if Mr. Retallack's-comparison, given to  a Nelson News reporter, is correct,  the  difference ia very little, with the advantage in   favor  of B. C. mines.   Here is  his statement of thecomparative figures:  "In British Columbia there was a rate  on 50 per cent, lead ore of $15 for freight  and treatment.   There was also a marketing charge on the lead of $1 per 100  ,pound on 90 per cent, of the  lead   contents.   This   would   amount   to, on 50  per cent, ore, ,$9 a ton, or a total' charge  of $24 per ton.   The price of lead in New  York is $4.10 per  100   pounds, and the  price paid the producer is $3.50 per 100  pounds. Therefore the inarketingcharge  in the United States is $G per ton,   The  freight and treatment  charge on 50 per  cent, ore is $19 per   ton, making a total  of $25 per ton, or $1 per ton greater than  in' British  Columbia.    Mr.   Retallack  concluded by saying that, the facts and  figures given above were not  generally  known and he believed their publication  at the moment was opportune."  A Literary Bequest.

Isi  rvr;  ?���������>  fc/  b1  _ ^  |V  ft - 'v  w  FA"  I  ������''  <ft*  The mining industry, because of   its  prosperous condition,  because  of  tbe  enormous fortunes that have been and  are being made in it, and'hecause of the  large profits   that  are  being   realized  every day on investments in mines and  mining stocks,  is being' invested   and  afllicted by a   hoard  of unscrupulous  sharks'and fakire,  who thrive  on   the  public's gullibility and thedc8ireto"get  rich quick."   There business is   to  sell  stock regardless of its merits���������unless   it  is found to be valuable, aud  then  they  can be depended upon to hang on  to it  for themselves.    They   exploit   people  instead of the ground and generally find  it guite as profitable, because the average person still clings to  the   old   idea  that mining.is a gamble and not a business, and believes all of the  glittering  and impossible promises that are made  to him by theminingstockshark. When  it conies to mining he   usually- prefers  to put his'money into some fake, scheme  where enormous returns are   promised,  which, if he stops to consider,  he must  know are impossible of fulfilment, rather than into any   legitimate  enterprise  where a good but comparatively   small  ��������� profit is assured.    Before entering any  other business   he   investigates   conditions thoroughly and will not put a dollar into it unless it is shown  to   be   a  right and just as represented.    But with  mining it is different; he enters it blindly and leaves the outcome to chance or  luck.   Then if he gets   bitten   he   maligns the mining industry and everyone  connected with it, when he himself,   by  his own carelessness and credulity,   is  responsible for  the   existence   of   this  worijt of all pests to the industry. ��������� Mining men, associations   and  newspapers  are doing all in their power to  rid   the  country of the mining stock shark   and  fake promoter, and they are doing much  towards educating the public   onj what  kinds of stocks  to buy   and   which   to  leave alone, but their effort will not be  entirely successful until people learn to  use common sense   in   making  investments in mining stocks as in other enterprises.    Until this   time  comes   the  mining faker will continue  to   ply   his  nefarious trade and will wax fat at their  expense,  Again the Small Boy. ,  ��������� A charming young lady in an eastern  town, who glories in the possession of  a wealth of bright auburn-colored hair,  was the teacher of a Sunday school class.  On one Sabbath the rector made the announcement toeing, and, rising, waved  his hands, and the organ pealed forth.  . "Now, said he, "ready- sing."  A small and precocious youth in the  young woman's class said :  "Why don't you sing, Miss Frisbee?"  Me? Oh, I never sing," replied the  teacher, sniilling her prettiest'  "But, exclaimed the boy, "the minister says you must. Didn't he just say,  "Now, Redely, sing?"  Smelling salts and numerous other  restoratives had to be used to bring the  teacher out of her faint.  A Different Kind.  An eastern traveller once struck a  small country town, and put up at a  hotel where the accommodations were  nothing to brag about, and where an unsophisticated country girl waited on his  table. After he had disposed- of his  soup and some of tho more solid matter,  the girl came around and inquired:  "Do you wish for pie?"  "Is it compulsory?" he asked.  "No," said   the   demure  maid,  gooseberry."  And the traveling man hadjarit.  The Arlington has cut its force down  .fifteen men and ceased shipping for the  present. Plans are nearly completed  for the erection of a concentration mill,  which they expect to have built and in  operation by June next.  ; It-is officially announced thot Fred F.  Oongden, crown prosecutor of the Yukon, is to be the new governor of that  territory to succeed Ross who was elected member for the Dominion parliament.  CoiiLCil   Business.  "If I was the mayor," remarked the  stranger, who has attended a meeting  of the city council, "I wouldn't permit  the aldermen to waste so much time in  useless wrangling over trival matters."

The Gran by mines made the., large?!'  days production of ore in its history on  Sunday last,when they mined and shipped 2,200 tons.  On Tuesday logs for export to the'  United Stales reached the highest price  on record at Vancouver, when $12 per  thousand feet was offered and refused.  . Export logs have to be secured from  crown granted land, which is becoming  very scarce in the province.  A report is being freely circulated  in  the Lardoau to the effect that the nearly  all the principal silver-lead producers of  that district are turning into gold mines  '  as depth is attained.   In most of  these  mines the values'in silveraredeereasing  and the quartz is carrying pay rock rich  enough "to ship for the gold  alone.     On  this account some of the mines   which  proved too low-grade to ship for   silver  are being worked   for    the gold.     The  report   if   true    is    remarkable,     but  not surprising.   Mining is   one   undertaking that fiirprisesjof this nature occur  it is not altogether   unlikely   that   this  should prove to be  the case.
