 VOL. 5.���������NO. 31.  SANDON, B.C., SATURDAY, JANUARY 18, 1902.  $2.00 PER YEAR.  Town Jottings.  , The old timers vote this a very fine  winter.  Fli Taylor came in town from Greenwood oh Wednesday.  Mr. Bloomenauer, of New Denver, was  in the city Wednesday.l He was formerly book-keeper at the Ruth.  Eobt. Irving, president of the K. & S.  railway, was up on Monday conferring  with Mrs. Winters as to a settlement  for the injuries she received in the late  railway, accident..  Mr. Stewart, the smelter expert, 6ent  out to investigate the Kaslo proposition  was in the city Monday. He speaks  favorably of the proposition.  The death of S. Hockaday near Slocan  City last week in a blizzard was a most  distressing incident. Ho was a very  popular man, and his death so suddenly  makes the incident all the sadder.  George Winters who had been in the  employ of the Hunter Keudrick-Co. for  thu last few months left Wednesday  morning for his home in Sarnia where  he will spend the balance of the winter  months.  - A number of the southern mine owners held a meeting in Nel6on Friday and  Saturday at which the refinery and  other questions were considered. Some  of the copper producers are talking of  reducing wages till prices advance  again.    .   ���������   :  ;  . Mike Kirlin is taking river the. Star  saloon from Archie Fulmore. Mike was  one of the first settlers in Sandon. All  the old timers know his good nature,  and in the business swim he ought to do  as well as anyone���������to get his share of  what is going.  The Liberals held an organization  meeting in the, city hall on Tuesday,  electing the following officers:- M.-L.  Grimmett, president ;~G. B. McDonald,  vice-president, and A. B. Docksteader,  secretary. A. Crawford and the secre-  tarywe.ro chosen delegates to the'Liberal convention at Vancouver on the 30th  of this month.  G. W. Grimmett did an excellent opti-  -��������� cal business in late trip to New Denver.  He goes to Nakusp for the 20th and 21st  inclusive, Revelstoke 22nd to 25th,  Enderby 27th to 30th, Armstrong 31st  to 3rd Feb, Vernon 4th to 7th. thence to  the southern towns for later dates. He  is a good optician, and will doubtless  make hie trip a profitable one.  The editor of this paper has a letter  from a farmer of Melita, Man., who has  sold out his farm there, and is enquiring for a farm around Sandon, wberehe  can place a large herd of cattle. If any  of pur surrounding farmers have a well  cultivated farm to dispose of, we can  find him a customer. Perhaps Lowery  could put him on the track of a suitable  hay farm.  "Nick" Ferris late teller in the Bank  of Commerce here has been transferred  to that institution's branch in Greenwood made vacant by one of their employees leaving to Join the Canadian  Mounted,Rifles at Halifax. While here  Nick made a host of friends and his departure will be greatly regretted by one  and all as he was always courteous and  obliging to the public in general.  The appeal of the Slocan Star against  the injuncion of the Star has been dismissed bv the court, which means that  the Star people will be allowed to examine the workings of the Slocan Star  and make drawings. This, of course,  has nothing to do with the merits of  the action. If the Star people think  the Slocan Star workings are encroaching on their property, litigation may  proceed. If they conclude otherwise  from their investigation proceeding may  drop.  This week has a "kold shnap."  Ex-alderman Hunter is in town from  Phoenix.  An agent of  was in tha'citv  the Canadian Magazine  this week.  the  to  re-  There ia some talk of organising  band again far the carnival.  H. Tattrie has given up the idea of  building a brewery at Frank.  II. Byers & Co., are putting in the  plumbing in the C. P. R. depot.  Bernard and Riley are to make the  race for the Commons in Victoria.  J. B. Fisher is home from a. visit  Seattle and provincial coast points.  There is a movement on foot   to  oganize the band for carnival week.  It is reported there is a deal on for  theMollie Hughes mine at New Denver.  ,' Ceorge Creech has commenced the  foundation of his new house on Sunny-,  side. .     '  The hockey boys have picked up a  team to play Nelson on Monday at that  place.  The Ladies' Aid of the Methodist  church purpose holding a fancy bazaar  about Eastei week.  A. C. Garde and Geo. Ransom, of the  Payne, are talking of remoying their  families to New Denver.  Lead is down to ������10 slO d6 in London::  Silveris worth 55 1-8 cents in New York;  lead -.$4 and copper at $11.  The Payne concentrator is now going  up ac a rapid rate, about a dozen men  being employed on the work.  It is said Nelson parties are to be in  the city today to purchase the Brewery  hotel,   in   which case   it   will  licensed.  It is reported that Cupid has succeeded at length in inducing Wm. Hunter,  the well known merchant of Silverton,  to become matrimonially inclined.  The Ladies of the Presbyterian church  takethis method of thanking their many  kind friends who so generously helped  to make the basket social a success.  From the way the Kaslo reporter of  the Nelson Tribune pokes fun at the  proposed Kaslo smelter, one would  think he was a resident of Nelson.  It will corneas a surprise to all, to  learn that the old firm of Bourne Bros,,  with stores at New Denver, Nakusp  and Revelstoke, have made an assignment.  It is said Mayor-elect Cunning is going to effectually stop gambling in the  city. This will of course raise ructions  in some quarters, but meet with approval in others.  The Presbyterian basket social on  Thursday evening realised about $65.  Some of the baskets sold for $4.50. The  usual sweet nothings followed tlie purchases. There wa9 a fair attendance  present.  All of the hotels and saloons renewed  their licenses on Wednesday with the  exception of the Brewery and the Clifton. Mr. Buckley will renew for the  Clifton, and there is every likelihood of  the Brewery being licensed as well.  Wednesday being the day for renewal  of hotel licenses some changes took  place. John Bucklev, one of the oldest  and most favorably known hotel men of  the place took over the Clifton from his  late tenant, P. Murphy, and will conduct the business alone in the future.  Mr. Murphy has taken over the restaurant and hotel business of the Filbert,  and will look after all in that popular  establishment. I-  They are sacking ore every day in the  workings of the Silversmith, the last  claim opened up on the Slocan Star.  The body and grade of ore keep up remarkably well.  McNaught, the railway magnate, was  expected in last night by the Slocan  Star people lor a conference on freight  matters. It is hoped some concessions  will be made before he goes away that  will lead-to a resumption of shipping at  that and other mines.  J. S. Clnte and the rest of the citizens  ticket snowed under their opponents in.  Rossland on Thursday. Labor unions  have their places, and properly conducted should command universal respect; but when they take it upon  themselves to run municipal corporation for strangling purposes, the worst  consequences result.  ��������� TheSimilkameenValleyCoal Co. directors' report has been issued and proves  'a very gratifying record. It shows the  company have some $37,000 in the  treasury and ,the manner in which the  funds will'be disbursed the coming  spring. Mr. Blakemore their engineer  has already purchased and shipped a  diamond drill from New York and upon  its arrival development will commence in  a thorough and systematic way. Furthermore the stock, will be taken orT the  British Columbia market after the 15th  of February.  The nominations for council Monday  were: R. Cunning,.mayor; E. Stein,.  T.Browni E; A. Cameron, T.lB. Folliott^T.^Durfy.arid Rr Jalland for aldermen. As there was no opposition to  the ticket all were.elected by acclamation, and they will have no snap in it.  The revenue will be at least $1,000 less  than last year, and the school will add  over $1,000 to the burden to say nothing  become - of theexpenditure that must be made on  the flume. In their struggle as the  Irishman put it "they will be more to j  be pitied than laughed at."  Another sheet of ice will be added to  the curling rink in a few days The  large membership of the local club and  the approaching bonspiel are the causes  for the extension. The structure will  be a temporary one, but there is every  likelihood of permanent improvements  being added before another season  comes around. During the bonspiel  five "roarin'games" will be going on at  once, and as the all the skins are enthu-  iastic and blessed with powerful lungs,  there will be roaring in earnest  An alteration took place at the Filbert  on Tuesday, that fortunately did not  end in anything serious. Chas. McLaughlin and Jeff Ly toon, an old time  tin-horn gambler, had some differences  over a matter, when Lytoon drew his  knife and cut quite a gash in McLaughlin's body below the heart. Chief Waite  went after Lytoon, who in the meantime made good his escape, on Wednesday's train but came back without him.  The probabilities are the bird is hiding  somewhere around till he gets a good  chance to levant. Fortunately McLaughlin is not seriously hurt.  The other day an official of the Miners'  union said to a leading Sandon merchant that if he was running in Nelson  for mayor he would rather have the  Nelson Miner against him than with  him. The Sandon merchant, knew better than this, but to pcctire a pull with  the union he said "Yes" also. \\rhen  they found Fletcher elected mayor  on Thursday last they both had their  eyes opened. The days of Houston and  Tribune rule are at an end. The sons  of feminine canines will, of course, yet  support them, but the respectable portion of the community give them a wide  berth. Kirkpatrick is a verv popular  man, and if Houston and the Tribune  had opposed him he would be Mayor of  Nelson today.   ,  Mines and Mining.  The Trade Dollar is now rawhiding  and shipping steadily.  Shipments from tne Goodenough  so farthis winter have amounted to 200  tons.  The Minnesota Silver Co. are shipping 250 tons of zinc to the European  market.  Large quantities of ore-are now being  taken out of the Queen Bess workings  for shipment.  Development work is being kept up.  at the Monitor mines, and for the pa6t  two months no ore has been shipped.  Half the staff have been laid off at  the Idaho mines. The present crew  are working on development. Over  2000 tons of ore are sacked.  The Last Chance peoplehaveresumed  work in their long tunnel, They are  shipping steadily but selling nothing  until smelter rates are settled.  The Reco lias rawhided over 100 tone  of ore this winter,- and about 300 more  tons are to be brought down. Ther������  are 30 men employed at the mine.  Mr. Warner reports the Wonderful  looking better than ever. He has six  feet of clean and concentrating ore -in  one face. - tie isehippingone car of good  ore this week.  V      Curling1.  As the 15th day of February draws  nigh, the day set for the commencement  of the Kootenay District Bonspiel preparations are. being proceeded with by  which the curling club here expect to  make the "spiel" one of the most suc-  eessful affairs ever undertaken in the  city; a meeting to draft the preliminary work of the "roaring game" will  be held at the curling rink 9:30 tonight.  Afull attendanceof members is requested to be present. To further facilitate  matters for the large number of new  players another temporary, addition to  to the present rink is being built, and*  at the expiration ofa wee'Ss labor will  have anothersheet of ice.

MS  pi 1.   ,  THE MINING REVIEW���������Saturday, January 18, 1902.  It is hard to get at the actual facts in  the case but there appears, to be something between the smelters and railways that the public cannot well get at,  and that is not operating in the best  interests of mining in this country. For  'instance it is reported the Everett smelter is very anxious to make a cut in  smelter rates that will help out the  country a great deal; but Mr. Moore of  the Trail smelter will not allow it. to become operative. This is at least the way  the ������tory reaches us; and,of course, the  freight and treatment charges are so connected together by Borne unexplained  system of adhesion, as to be almost inexplicable. It would not be a bad idea  if the mine owners would correspond  with the Federal authorities and urge  them to investigate the matter and see  if the trouble cannot be relieved. We  have as good mines as there are under  the sun, and many of them in a position  to employ extensively and ship heavily,,  t business can be made pay. If it  is either the railways or the smelters or  both, 'or any other obstruction that  sta'nds in the way that can be removed,  action towards removal cannot be taken  an hour too soon. We never want to  blame anyone or any corporation in the  Tlie Mining Review.  SATURDAY, JANUARY 18,  1902.  The legislators of England are considering legislation that should set the  world thinking.   It  is to hold  parents  'responsible .for   the  crimes   of   their  children under 1G years of age, when, it  can   be   shown   the    crimes    are   the  result of improper parental care in the  younger   years.     Some   will    consider  this a harsh proposition.    It may be so  in some cases, but certainly not in the  majority   of   ihem.     We   venture the  opinion that if a skilled   disciplinarian  were to frequently visit all the> parental  roofs of  this  province,  and  take full  ���������   note of the manner  in  which families  are brought up, he would   readily conclude that the crime   that accompanies  the youth   of the   country is   in   most  cases   the   inevitable.    Oh,   but  says  , one, I have known the sons of clergymen to turn out the worst scamps of the  country.   Very true; but are clergymen  always the very best disciplinarians? Are  they often too rigid in  their treatment  of youth, and is not   this   rigidity   calculated to lead to excesses in the wrong  direction, when its pressure is removed?  A boy may be held under too much   restraint  as  well   as   too little, and the  one is   as   short sighted   as the other.  Young people want all the amusements  they hear of, and very few of  Lhem   are  'injurious to character when indulged in  with proper associates.   It is theassoci-  ations and not   the   amusements   that  develop viscious habits.   Of course  no  good Methodist will agree with us,   but  we can see no more harm in a   pack  of  cards in the hands of a youth   than   we  can in a crokinole board, if the   associates iu the games are the same in  both  cases".   Of course when boys of   tender  age are allowed   to   play  blackjack  in  saloons  with men who follow it   for  a  living, nothing good can   come   of   the  practice; but nothing better  could-be  expected if the game was crokinole under such influences.   The proposition is  however, one worthy of much consideration; and if parents know   there   is   a  legal responsibility as well as   a   moral  * one resting upon them, they   are   more  .   'likely to   give family   training  better  consideration.  BOTTLE BABIES  Bottle babies are . so likely  to or-et thin. What can be  done ? More milk, condensed  milk, watered milk, household  mixtures���������try them all. Then  try a little Scott's Emulsion in  the bottle.

Lead appears to be at a paying figure across the  line; it costs the {-consumer here 'in a  manufactured state from $7 to $9 per  cwt. and the B. C. miner can get but  $1.25 for the raw material when the demands of all manipulators are satisfied.  Surely "there is something rotten in the  state of Denmark."  time such   purchases   are   not   in   the  public   interest.     When   people   read  any newspaper for any length ,of time  the\' ai u likely to put confidence  in  its  utterances regardless altogether of the  proprietorship.   Mann &. Mckenzie, are  contractors   and   speculators,     always  looking   for   valuable   franchises from  the   public;   and   it   is reasonable   to  suppose  papers.they own will recommend that   their  demands be met by  the  public.   These  demands   may   or  may not be in the public interest, but  they   will    all    the   same be   recommended  by   the   purchased press.   In  this connection, it is notour desire to  singleoutthesecontractors in particular.  We desire our remarks  to apply to any  and   all  contractors    looking   for   the  control of public utilities, or slices from  the domain or the   treasury.   There is  nothing like a free,  independent press  that is supported  by  the public, and  under no financial obligations to any  one else. . These aro the most likely to  properly guard public interests.  mmummmttMMUumimsammMmmm  JEWELRY  0  It  own  not  is said Mann & McKenzie now  the Vancouver World. We do  know  that   is   the   best   for   the  ceuntry. Of course if Mann & McKenzie  or any large corporation who are  looking for pulls from the provincial  and federal treasuries feel like bnying  newspapers, there is no way of stopping  them from doing so; but at the same  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 ray  of light has penetrated many darkened  chambers where women moaned in misery, and has guided them out to health  and happiness. " 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 aud my doctor gnve me  but little relief," writes Mrs. X<ulti Hunter, of  Allentoii, St. Louis Co., Mo. "I saw an advertisement in the paper of Dr. Pierce's Favorite  Prescription. I began tlie use of it about a year  ago. I took five bottles of it, and one bottle of  ' Golden Medical Discovery,' 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."  The Hon. Mr. Dunsniuir has issued a  manifesto to the electors that shows  considerable sound common sense. He  says "Joe" Martin has nothing whatever to do with framing his course on  public matters which should count for  something. He was simply held up by  the Bodwell crowd during the last session of the House, and when he refused  to deliver a number of his supporters  parted company with him and left him  liable.to defeat. In this extremity, Joe  Martin, J. 0. Brown and others came  to his rescue, endorsed his   refusal   to  have the treasury bled by Bodwell & Co.  and he saw nothing more reasonable  than to give one of their number the vacant portfolio in his cabinet. This he  says is alleged in some quarters to be  the price of Martin's support, when it  has nothing whatever to do with it. He  declares further he is fn favor of government ownership of railways-as far as  practicable, and disposed to make a reduction of the two per cent, tax of which  the mine owners complain. These  suggestions should meet with public  favor, as they are certainly in-line with  the drift of public opinion. There is  certainly one thing certain, the public  will heartily approve of his acts if they  are in full keeping with the drift of his  manifesto.  .aiataBEBia^  MAKES WEAK UUNcH-.5rR0M6  '���������AW SKK WOMEN WELL.  The Provincial Legislature is called to  meet on the 20th of February,  and  just  how the parties will then stand it is   at  the present   time   impossible   to   tell.  There is a great deal of gush going   the  rounds of the   press;  but   what-it   all  amounts to no one can say   until' Jioses  are counted in the  House.     Dunsmuir  has his faults; but as far as we can learn  he is more disposed to protect the provincial   treasury   from   the   inroads  of  charter mongers than any other  leader,  real or imaginary, who has as   yet   put  his head above water, and this counts a  great deal.   The province now one   and  all know that if railway rates are made  reasonable our mines are sufficiently developed to warrant a large traffic for all  roads built and are likely to be built for  some time.   Under these circumstances  the treasury should be no longer held as  game for the railway adventurers that  are cropping tip on every hand to   bleed  it.   Hill says he will build through  the  Boundary country, bonus or no  bonus,  and this being the case it would be only  throwing so much money away to give  him a bonus great or small.   Invite   all  the roads in that are   willing   to   come  but let them build from  their   own   resources its he safest stand that any gov-  ernmet can take.

Canada's  Growth of   Mineral  duction.  Pro-  The Dominion statistician, Mr. Johnston, has completed an exhaustive comparison of the mineral production of  the United States and Canada respectively.  This shows that the States has increased its entire output from 1891 to  1901 by 4.11 per head. Canada in the  same period increased by 8.14 per head,  mainly in gold, silver, lead nickel, copper, zinc, pig iron and coal. This is  nearlv double the rate of increase of the  United States.  Canada's gold output is five-sevenths  of its entire metal production, against  one-seventh in the States. In pig iron  Mr. Johnson estimates in three years  Canada will equal this year's proportionate output of the States, namely,  $47 out of every $100 of the total metal  product.  In nickel Canada outstrips the States  and all other countries. In coal and  other fuels Canada's increase is 120  per cent, against. 75 per cent in the  States. Altogether it is quite a revelation of the wonderful development of  Canada's hidden wealth.  Cook's Cotton Hoot Compound  Is successfully used monthly by over  rlO.000Ladles. Safe, effectual.

Notice is hereby given that I intend to  apply at the next sitting of the board of  license commissioners for the City of Sandon,  to be held after the expiration of thirty days  from   the date hereof, for a transfer of  the (      -- --  "," ~��������������������������� ���������  retail liquor license no\v held by me  for the;Similkameen    Valley    Coal   Co.,  Star Hotel, situate on Beco Avenue, in  the ��������� . J '-"���������)  Therfollowing is an excerp from the  report of Erechville on the lioasland  strike :  I have carefully gone into the matter,  interviewing all sorts and conditions of  men, and am of the  opinion   that   the  strike   was   mainly brought   about by  the injudicious and arbitary action, of  Mr. Bela Kadish, the late   manager   of  your   smelting   works   at    Northport,  where the strike first commenced._  The  strike in Rossland is a sympathetic one  ordered by the   Western Federation of  Miners, which has its  headquarters   at  Denver, Colorado, the Rossland Miners'  Union being a branch of that organization.   The demand for an increase of 50  cents per day in the "muckers"  wages  is simply a pretext.     Moie "'muckers"  than arc wanted can be got for $2.50 per  .day,    which cnow   is and has  always  been the rate of pay   for   this   cla=is   of  labor at Rossland.   The miners who receive ,$3.50 per day have no  grievances  that I am aware of.   As a matterof fact,  .the strike was, according to the by-laws  of the union itself, illegally called.   The  ���������battle  once  having  begun  has to   be  fought    out    if    you     wish   to    have  control over the working of your property.   Any concession, no matter   how  slieht,  to the   demands of   the   union  would be hailed as a victory, and would  be followed by   still   further   demands.  The rank and file of the Rossland   Miners' union would now gladly call ofl" the  strike, but they are powerless to do   so,  being under the control of professional  agitators, who in their turn are ruled by  the-orders of the Western Federation of  Miners at Denver.    As it is, your   mine  and smelting works are being filled   up  with   non-union   men;   the    smelting  works have alrendy got their  full   complement, and it will not be long before  your mine will be in tbe same position.
