SANDON, B. C, SATURDAY, JANUARY 17, 1003.  2.00 PER YEAR  h  ���������  IT  H*i  St'. ;>  Ti '*'  ft  SANDON IS TI) THE "MB.  Citizens  Discuss the Silver-lead  Question and Civic Affairs.  (..Quite a few attended the public meet-  ins; in the city hall .last Saturday evening for the   purpose   of  endorsing   the  stand taken by tlie mine owners and the  discussion of civic affairs.     M. L. Grimmett was appointed chairman and Geo  Huston  secretary.     In ' declaring  the  meeting opened the chairman said   the  meeting was two-fold, the discussion of  civic matters and the   silver-lead  question;   and   asked   which   of   the    two  ��������� should   first    receive    attention.       A  motion was immediately passed to proceed with the si Iyer-lead  question, and  L. Pratt, who was chiefly interested in  calling the meeting; was asked to   state  his views on the  matter.  Mr. Pratt said as'all were aware   the  silver-lead mine owners passed a   resolution some time ago' in   this   city   re-  ���������    questing the government to   revise   the  duty on lead coining into Canada.   The  mine  owners   after   meeting   once   or  twice and discussingalfairsarnong themselves came to a unanimous   conclusion  that a higher tarifl on lead and its  products was absolutely  necessary  to   improve the conditions of this class of mining.   That they had placed a resolution  ia tho handsof their representative of the  Dominion parliament of  Canada,   and  also had forwarded copies of   the  same  resolution to all members of  both   the  House of Commons and   Senate.     lie  thought they had  made a pretty strong  plea,   and   was   certain   Mr.   Galliher  would be able to get tlie government to  submit to their demands.   A short time  ago their representative informed   the  members of the mine owners committee  that certain statements emulating from  a speerh made by Smith  Curtis, M.  L.  A. of Rossland, were being used by   the  paint mixers of Eastern Canada   in   an  active propaganda against the resolution  , passed by the mine owners,   in   which  they are endeavoring to show that there  was a diversity of  opinion   among   the  lead producers, and iinlesssonie definite  action on the part of the people was not  speedily taken their efforts weie   likely  to end in failure.   Mr.   Pratt  further  stated that the Boards of Trade of Nelson,! Rossland   and   Kaslo    had   held  meetings and   passed  resolutions   supporting the mine owners and dining the  past few days public meetings were held  by tho citizens of these towns and . also  New Denver, as well as the Trades, and  Labor council of Nelson- a labor organization���������to Show that the people of   the  district were in hearty sympathy   with  the lead producers in their efforts to secure the legislation asked.   He had called the attention of a few of the leading  citizens to the fact that Sandon beingthe  centre of this  important, industry   was  looked upon as the chief  place   to   be  heard from, and any action on the part  of the people of Sandon would go a long  way in influencing tho government as to  the    course they   should   take.      Mr.  Pratt concluded by saying the meeting  was called to pass  a resolution endors  ing Uie one .adopted by the mine owners and to repudiate the statements of  Smith Curtis, and as Sandon would be  the city to benefit most directly by  the legislation sought, it would show  the government that the people as a  whole were united and strengthen their  cause very much. ���������  Mr. Mc.-idams, undertook to defend  Smith Curtis, and as usual without any knowledge of fads, He said  the speech of Smith Curtis was made  in Rossland and reported by the  Associated Press of that city to the  papers of the east. That the paint mixers of that section were using his statements to conduct their propaganda and  that'Mr. Curtis was taking no part in  the campaign against the lead producers. His statement was promptly repudiated by Mr. Pratt, who said it was  nols'i. That he, himself, had in his  possession one of the circulars and a  personal letter from Smith Curtis accompanying it, which was completely  at variance to McAdams'  remarks.  Mr. Towgood followed and said  that we were all interested in the working of the mines; that Lhe mine owners  had met and considered the situation,  and adopted a resolution which they are  confident will allievate (he present distress. As the people most concerned in  the matter, they ought to know what  would benefit the industry and he  thought a resolution should be passed  supporting them in their desires." All  the people were inetitiiesympathy with  the mine owner and were as much interested ir, the welfare of the industry.  Mr. Bruder asked if there were any  representatives of the miner's union  present, when Mr. Huston informed  him that he had spoken to  some of the officials of that body and  was told that they wore holding a meet-  in their own hall at that moment and  would take some action in the matter.  Mr. Grimmett then read a resolution  he hud prepared, which after few amendments was adopted and appears on another pngo of this issue.  Tlie resolution was passed unanimous-  Jy which Mr. Pratt .forwarded at OLce to  Mr. Galliher in Ottawa,-and expressed  his thanks 10 those present forthetime-  ly action taken. This ended the silver-  lead part of ihe evening and the question of the civic aliairs,was then brought  The chairman in opening the discussion said it was theoustoni of the outgoing council to cull a public meeting at  this time of the year to give ah account  of their stewardship and select new  members for the coining term. He called upon Dr. Gomm to express his views  in this connection, but the Dr. on rising  said he had only been a member of the  board a few weeks, and then the-office  was forced upon him, and beyond the  passage of a few account.-: he knew little  of the business transacted during the  past year.  Aid. Brown was then called upon and  said if there were any questions asked  regarding the expenditures he would be  pleased to answer them. He thought  the .council had done very well under  the circumstances; they  had kept  the  had   spent   about $4,000 on the flume, |    In reply to these charges Aid. Brown  and thisalone had eaten nearly all the  admitted there was  practically nothing  money available, outside of running ex  penses.   The council had also paid a few  old bills and met the half-yearly  interest account of $450 on debentures.   The  cost of running the school had been very  heavy,   the  city   having to contribute  about'$750 towarda its maintenance and  on account ol the poor   attendance   the  government grant had .been very small.  They had endeavored to collect the back  taxes, but had experienced   much difficulty in doing so on account of the trouble in getting a quorum  and the . little  interest in municipal affairs.   They had  placed tho collection of  Sproat's  taxes  in the hands of a solicitor, but   shortly  after doing so the councij went to pieces  and the matter dropped  for a period of  about four months, when  there  was no  council at all  to   direct affairs.    When  they did succeed in forming a quorum a  short while ago the question of Sproat's  taxes was again   brought   up   and   an  effort made to collect them.   They received a commnnciition in   reply   from  that gentleman to the effect that  they  were an illegal council and  powerless to  act.   Since then nothing had been done  as so little interest was taken in council  matters by the  citizens,   the  members  of the board decided to let affairs stand  until a new council was chosen.    Some  thing definite had to be done and every  effort should be made to elect a mayor  and full board of aldermen for the coming year, as there had been no provision  made towards the sinking fund. The  total amount collected was $11,729.93  arid thin was all expended except a balance of:iji2-iS.50 to meet a few outstanding accounts.  It was pointed out that according to  the report oublished the scavenging department did not pay for itself and those  present would like to know the cause.  Aid. Brown replied that a mistake  had been made in the preparation of  the report, which could be easily explained. He said (hat at the time Geo.  Waite was appointed scavenger his salary was $90 per month, later it was decided to combine the police and.scavenging departments into one, with an  increase of salary of $10 per month. In  making up the report the both accounts  had'been credited to the scavenging department alone, and by deducting the  police account therefrom it would be  found the department complained was a  a little more than self-sustaining.  Mr. Harris brought up the small expenditures of the fire (leparlment, sidewalk 'improvements, and the present  dangerous condition of most of the latter, especially in front of the city hall.  He.pointed out that the amount spent  on sidewalks was only the paltry sum of  $25, and asked if that was not considered a very small expenditure on such  an important matter. In. the fire department the report showed only.$6.50  spent in equipment, and was altogether  absurd. In the clearing of the sidewalks it would appear that nothing had  been done towards them, and their condition Was such that a person sustaining  a fall was likely to meet with severe injury and leave the city liable for heavy  expenditures within the revenue; they I damages.  done in the construction of sidewalks'  and which were badly needed, for the  reason the council had no money to  build them, tho flume ��������� improvements  and extension taking nearly all the  funds available and other departments  had to be neglected. He. was in favor  of building sidewalks wherever needed ���������  within the city limits. In regard to the  small expenditure in the fire department he stated that the city had purchased an entire new equipment after  the (ire and very little was needed.  , In the discussioivof this subject the  fact was brought to light the fact that  the fire equipment did not cost the city  hardly anything, as it was purchased  out of the relief fund and donated to the  city by the committee in charge.  In connection with the clearing of the  sidewalks Aid. Brown said lie regretted  their present state. The council had  thought-��������� of enforcing the by-law in  regard to them, but had n,et with so  little encouragement from the people,  that they decided to leave the matter  for the new board to deal with.  A. David spoke a few words lauding  the council for their work during the  year and made a motion to request the  old board to be re-elected, which was  carried. A vote of thanks was passed  for their services rendered the city and  the selecting of (he necessary number  to completethe board began.  The chairman said that something  should be done to secure a full board.  He was aware there were not many  qualified for the position, and those that  were did not care to act. He regretted  to see the.little in'erest taken in civic  affairs and thought more public spirit  should bo shown. Glancing over the  voters's list those qualified for mayor  and aldermen were singled out, the entire number being about fifteen.  Ex-mayor Cunning was brought forward by McAdam, but those present  thought thev had enough of Mr. Cunning's services the past year and his  name was riot even considered.  M. L. Grimmett Avas mentioned for  the office and the motion made w as carried unanimously. That gentleman on  rising stated that he did not covet (he  position, but if no one else could be persuaded to accept the office he had public  spirit enough to do so.  Jas. Vallance was named for alderman and he replied in about the same  terms as Mr. Grimmett. Then a committee was appointed to interview.those  who could qualify for the purpose of securing two aldermen, and after appointing E. R. Atherton school trustee the  meeting adjourned.  On Monday the committee composed  of M. L. Grimmett, Jas. Vallance and  E. R. Atherton interviewed Alex. Crawford and obtained for him his consent  to act as alderman and also Ed. McLeod  of the Kootenay hotel.  Ihe new council for the ensuing year  is as follows:  Mayor���������M. L. Grimmett.  Aldermen���������Jas. Vallance, A.   Craw- ^  ford, Ed. McLeod, E. A. Cameron, Dr.  Gomm and Thos. Brown, the last three  being members of the old board. ������W������*������.***:-2S3^3ra^  ^^^iS^^^^^^MS^^^^^^^^  THE MINING REVIEW���������Satumay,' January  17,  1903.  >.   f  Mining Keview.  SATURDAY, JANUARY 17, 1903.  Sandon is to be  congratulated on securing the services of M. L. Grimmett  as   mayor.   As  a leading   lawyer   the  affairs of the city will be conducted in a  legal and efficient manner,and theglar-.  ing mistakes and   incompetency of the  past vear will be rectified.    Had Mayor  Grimmett acceded to the many requests  of the taxpayers (he past  few weeks, to  assume control of civic affairs, he would  had no   difficulty in securing an .entire  board to work   in   hearty   co-operation  with him, as those qualified to act, would  only be   too willing   to serve under his  guidance.   It   is  only right to say the  office was forced on hi in by the unanimous  request  of   the   meeting last Saturday  evening, which would not hear of a refusal on.his part.   The most competent,  man possible is needed for  the office of  mayor, and   the   choice   for 1903 ia the  best made since the. city was   incorporated.    With   Mayor   Grimmett  at  the  head of affairs the city's welfare   is   assured and more interesl in  civic affairs  will be manifest on behalf of   the   ratepayers. . There is plenty of work for the  new board to consider.    Despite  the report of the old council it is current   the  the a/fairs of the city arein  poor'shape  shape and will call   for   tlie. most rigid  economy in all  departments.    Nothing  has been set aside the past year for the  maintenance   of the sinking fund, and  the only improvements made  with   the  $11,749 collected in revenue,   was about.  $4,000 in connection with the''flume, the  balance being dispersed mostly in salaries and   school   expenses.^- There are  many questions affecting the welfare of  the city to be adjusted by (he new board  chief of which is'the  proper protection  of the city against (ire.    At present Sandon is practically at the   mercy of   the  fire fiend, and   should a fire   take place  the   result   is   liable to be disastrous to  the city, and this in face of   the   severe  lesson taught tlie officials  only a short  time   ago.     Arrangements   should   be  made as soon as possible to   settle  any  differences with the Water & Light Co.,  and we are confident that with the conciliatory  spirit   characteristic   of   the  mayor   that  an    amicable   agreement  would, be the result to the benefit of all  parties concerned.

Then why not get the 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
Sandon, The Leading Merchant
Tailor in the Kootenay Country
and it has been made to appear that the | \y. Baer of Nanaimo will preach in   the
silver-lead miners wero not unanimous,
and that said speeches expressed the
views of a majority of them.
Whereas, Mr. Curtis does not represent the 8ilver-leadminersof the Slocan.
Therefore, be it resolved, that the
views expressed in said speeches, are
not the views of the citizens of Sandon,
and that thiB meeting urgently and respectfully ask the Dominion government to grant the request of the dole-
gates now enroute to Ottawa.
The secretary is requested to  forward
by wire a copy of the   above  resolution
to our worthy member W. A.   Galliher.
Geo. Huston.
We learn that the Miners' Union deferred action at their meetinglastSatur-
day evening until today. Aa the delegates were received by the government
Thursday last, action on their part, if
any is taken, will be too late to accomplish any good for the silver-lead industry.

Wednesday night the ladies took possession -of- the^ice   and showed   the  old denizens of the "brame and "stane"  that they were not the onlyt masters of  the art.   The single ladies  comprising  two    rinks   were   pitted .'against  'an  equal number of rinks  of married ladies and thespirit with which they entered into the play-it was evident from the  outset of the game one or the other,was  to be admonished to  a  severe  defeat.  The rr..vst remarkable feature, throughout the game was the number of raises  played and it was so systematized- with  such    accuracy    that     they    hardly  ever failed to make the shot.     Another  feature was their adaptability in; Handling' the     broom    and   -showed    .to  advantage  as   well   as    the  gorgeous  regalia they were decked in���������the single  ladies wearing red and  white  and   the  married chose blue ribbon as-their dis-  tinquishing colors.    The  single ladies  were favorites, which was only natural,  and were coached and lauded when the  opportunity was  presented,   but  it is  only right to   say that their opponants  did receive  a  full  share  of  ovation,  The most exciting part of the   performance   was the  scoring.     When   the  one side would score  an   end  it   waB  amusing to see the otherlingeringabout  the board while thechaikingprocesa was  being carried on, while depicted on their  countenances waa the last faint hope of  expectancy. After the game a trophy was  presented to the large number of spectators in the way of a bounteous  supper  which waB appreciably received.     The  honors were equally divided in the   victory with a slight advantage in favor of  the married Jadiesin the "total 'score.

What may  - also prove to be an important factor   in  the value of the mine   is   that   another  vein has been discovered on the property of considerable   width,   upon  which  practically no work has yet been   done.  ' Bu'ri'ng the last two years the  market  prices of silver and lead have gradually  fallen, lead from something like������iS   tu  under ������11 per ton, and silver from about  2s. 6p. an ounce to 22 3-lGd. per ounce,  which your directors can 011I3' viewwith  -the utmost concern���������so much so that it  becomes a question   whether it   would  not. be better to temporarily sliut   down  the mine until-  better 'prices   prevail  We have given this matter our consideration for some time, but   have   delayed  taking any definite steps in that  direction, in the hope   that   bed   rock   had  been  reached,  and   that   the   markets  would improve.   But this has not  been  the case, and there   appears  to   be   no  immediate prospect of airy improvement  occurring.     Your directors are.   therefore,  again   seriously  considering  the  position from this point of view.     Owing to the geological   character  of   the  mine, I do not think that damage would  result'from a temporary  suspension   of  operations, hut while  silver   and   lead  stand at su--h extremely low   prices,   it  seems only a matter of  prudence   that  this, step should be  taken   rather   than .  conriiine as we are now doing���������namely, j  exhausting our resources for little or rro !  profit..  Alas! Poop "Bob."  One of the most exciting eler tions   in  tho history of Kaslo was held on Thnrsr  day and winch resullc1 in tlie defeat of  A. T. Garland by A.   E.   Archer   by   a  majority of 12 and  turning   down   the  Green    element.      Garland   waB   Bob  Green's man, .who is known in Kaslo as  "Combine" and "Merger" Bob, and he  tried his best to get his man elected but  the people of Kaslo, and the whole   district for that matter have had enough of  Bob.    This was KhsIo'b opportunity  to  show that they are sick and tired of his  fence-jumping doctrines and Ihey   have  had enough of his ruling  in   civic   and  provincial politics.   Green was trying to  sound    his   standing with   the people  and they have answered  him   with   no  uncertain voice.   As a politician he lias-  been a dinmal failure, and  his   chances  for reelection should he have the nerve  to run, are decidedly small.     The  contest for school trustee, W.  J,   Green, a  brother of Bob's, was defeated by A. II.  Brown, the   vote   being 94  to   90, and  plainly showed another route for Bob.  One of hia   most   ardent  supporters in  former campaigns proved his most bitter  enemy in the election   just held, which  is an indication of how the the  mighty  have fallen.   Although Mr. Garland was  defeated it was not on account of his unpopularity with the people, but simply  because of trie awkward position he. was  placed in by accepting   the  nomination  of the party dominated  by R. F. Green,  which the ratepayers  were determined  to defeat in any  event:   The   boxrd   of  aldermen were elected  by acclamation,  the'contest being confined wholly to the  mayoralty rind tlieeleclionof school trustee, and the fight was the hottest fought  in tlie history of   municipal   politics in  City of Kaslo.

The American Boy shipped a car of  ore to the American Smelting &Eefin-  ing Co's. works in Colorado, this week.  Thos. McGuigan has been appointed  to full control of the .American Boy, and  the affairs of the mine are now conducted from Sandon instead of Spokane.  J. D.

Two white men and ten chinamen  were blown to atoms on Wednesday by  an explosion in the Hamilton powder  works at Depar'ure Bay on tho coast.  The buildings were demolished and the  shock felt twenty miles away.  Contrary to expectations all the hotels and saloons doing businesi at the  close of the year renewed their licenses  on Wednesday for the next six months.  Mr. P. E.

McGuigan this week was in the throes  ofa real estate excitement wnerebyan  habitation changes hands. The consideration we understand is consistent  with the Slocan boom-time prices.  The Interior Press Association of British Columbia meets in Nelson on Sunday, when many im'portant subjects affecting the welfare of the association  will be discussed.
