 r  ^L  VOL 2.      NO. 37.  SAHDOn, B .C, SATURDAY, JANUARY 7, 1899.  /���������  /  FIVE CENTS.  THE S  The Great Silver-Lead Producer, the  ���������    Banner Division for 1898.  Value of ths Output Is $3,437,843���������The  Largest in the Province.  \\ Notwithstanding all the fusa that is  being made in England, and elsewhere,  over gold properties, this year as well  as last, in the face of the compar.itive-  {, ly low value of silver, tne Slocan leads.  . "<, the province in tlio value of out-put.  We dc[ not include the shipments  from Whitewater as that place is not  in tho Slocan Division proper, though  much of the business of the mines  there is done in this city.  In his 1897 report Mr. Cariyle put  down the gross value of Slocan' ores  at$110 per ton, and as silver is now  the same value as when his reports  were aompiied we quote the ores at  $110 per ton, which gives a' gross -value  of $8,437,843 to the ores exported in  1898, from th������ Slocan. This is by long  odds the greatest value of any division  of the province.  Ths Rossland Miner of the 1st inst.,  puts the exports of the Trail Creek  Division at, to use its own figures, the  "enormous" sum of $2,804,758 or $033,-  085 less than the Slocan output. The  "enormity" then of the Trail Creek  Division consists of the blowing of its  papers.   But let us take a single in-  III PUBLIC IEII!  An Enthusiastic and Largely Representative Gathering.

At length the public meeting talked  of for some time was held Wednesday  evening, called by the mayor. F. L.  Christie was called to the chair, though  it was the mayor's duty to act, and  Judge Lilly was chosen secretary.  Mr. Christie did not know how or  why the meeting was callsd, as no programme was placed in his hands.  The mayor eloquently declared that  the meeting was called "to hear the  kickers."  Mr. David wanted the .council- to  give an account of^their stewardship.  Mr. Cliffe said the ordinary course  was for the council to go over the work  of the past year, giving reasons for  their acts ; for new aspirants to suggest  amendments and improvements, and  for tho audience to close in'commonts.

'  planation of the record of the  closing  year fro>n the council.  Dr. Young wanted to know the situation of the flume by-law, and Mr.  Grimmett explained that the council  had had no word from it of any significance.  Aid. Hunter heard there was consider, bio dissatisfaction with tho way  business was done the past year, and  he would liko to hear how it could  have been done dill'ereiitly or better.  1 Mr. Buckley asked for tlie revenue  of tho past, year, and the clerk said excepting for Deeoinbcr it was ������12,200.  Mr. D. J. Robertson heard of sever il  charges against the council, and .he  would'like to hear them either successfully refilled, or Qubyfauoiale.l.  Mr. David understood at the outset  that the council were selected for their  busincj-s ability ; but was convinced, as  were many other citizen**, that ability  did not show itself in tho record of the  council.   They hired a solicitor to look  after the interests  of the city, and he  turned out to be the solicitor of an individual   instead.   Mr. Grimmett   before incorporation reiterated  the complaints of many that money Was going  out. of town -continually and the people-  appeared powerless to prevent it.'  He  (Mr. G.) also.represented then that the  ordinary  receipts of the place Would  ���������meet the demands of the place without   fealty taxation ;   but  how did  it  turn out?   Ho also represented that a  sewer system, was required, but, not the  first year���������no w.ord of thoWlumc before  incorporation, and after incorporation  it was  uncermonio.usly sprung   upon  the people. --There was no   blame, attached to Mr. Harris for getting all the  improvements.'he could   out   of  the  council,; but it was the duty of the latter to stand between   the1 (.eople and  tl>e  undue service of anyone.   Some  tiino before  incorporation Mr. Harris  spoke of building the!flume- himself,  showing how 'material, a service it was  to him.  'He had got certain privileges  in connection .; with the stream when  building his water system,  but he had  no power   to turn them over   to  the  council by word of mouth.   The council had the audacity to assume  before  commencing the flume that they knew  how the people would vote  on it, and  went to work at it;   The vote had been  taken,   no one  was consulted till 'the  expenditure wiis-made, and then  thoy  assumed   their''slaws   would   concur.  Mr. Grimmett succeeded by a dodge in  electing  the council   he wanted, and  they, especially the mayor, set out in  improving their own property at tho  expense  of the taxpayers.   The latter  were, in turn,'called |,kjckers"'for objecting.   Tney illegally taxed -tlie people for such improvements and redress  was refused.   JVcxf year our taxes were  sure to 00 higher than the past, as interest and sinking fund would  have to  be met.    When the  flume   was  being  built Mr. Crawford made arrangements  with the. other blacksmith to put iu  no tender, but divide the work.    When  payments .were..made Mr. Crawford got  ������10  to the other's 61.   Before this private incorporation the mayor also had  business   dealings'  with   the . council  contrary to law.   Some of the council,  in this way,   had   disqualifies   themselves.-and the solicitor knew it.   He  himself did  not like   to walk  out of  town without 'a cent,   but   the  taxes  would   soon   consume   Ins   property.  There was but little public work done  in  the  city of service to the masses,  but much for the council themselves.  The flame should not have cost  more  than $6,000, and would not if built by  a private individual.     If the council  had served the people they should not  remain silent but set to.work and show  it 'hat evening. They were even practically licensing the demi-monde by  their system of fining contrary to all  hiw and statutes. Ho! then recited���������his  complaint against Mr. Harris' water  rates, as published in the other paper  last week. t  Mr. Grimmett felt that when an   attorney, was' accused   of   betrayiil   of  trust, it   was   time   to   speak.      Mr-  David sa-w lit to lay  the   duties   of   a  city attorney before the .people   from  his stand point.   A year ago   he   was  employed as solicitor and had   to   advise the council when requested to  do  so.   He challenged Mr. David to show  he had used his influence or office   in  any respect against   the   city   or   the  council in favor of Mr. Harris or any  one els?.   If Mr. David   would   make  the charge that he had in direct  form,  he, (Mr. G.), woald   see   that   it   was  properly ventilated.     He never   once  interferred with; the   council   in   any  way, shape or form and never advised  only when asked to do   so.     He   had  clients in the city last yea'-   who   had  paid him more money than Mr.Harris  ilid.    Mr. Harris,' Mr.   Atherton   and  Mr. Buckly had been good   friends   ol  his when he first   came  to   the   place  and was pleased h'j had retained  their  good offices .ever since: , If  both   Mr.  Harris and the ��������� city   withdrew   their  patronage from   him,   he   thought he  could live in the place.     At the start  he tor>k an active interest in the incorporation.     Situated as the place   was,  m.my thought it wauld  be   better   by  incorporation.     lie talked even to Mr.  David about it, an   he at the time was  .111 .mlent friend of incorporation     All  the business nwn   and   hotel   keepers  were in. favor of it as  the government  olhVi.ils wore   continually   interferinsr  with personal affairs.   He spent much  time over incorporation   and   got   no  personal benefit      A   couple   months  after incorporation all decided on flum-  ing the crook to protect the city.   Jsel-  .-,011 and Rossland on incorporation got  /lower to   burrow  money   for   public  works under an .ict expiring   in   1S97.  Sandon, of course, could not '-take   nd-  v-mtage of this   but   the   government  promised   11 delegation   to   make   an  eejual provision for ''1 his  place.     -The  council went on with the work  belicv-  ieg the promise would be carried   out.  This was   the   requisite   explanation.  He .iske.l Mr. Harris .who was  present  if he ever discussed with him   in   any  way the flumiug of  Cirpeiiter   creek,  and that gentleman replied  empb.itic-  aliy, '"-No."   Atone  time   Mr.   David  told him Mr. Harris was charging him'  too much for his water  supply.' ."t,He  'replied as city solicitor he could   take,  uo action in   the   matter���������in fact   he  advised the.eotinoii to the same,   purport��������� ::-s it was purjjly- beyond the city  by-iawsj   The action, if  any,   would  have to be taken up by Mr.. David   va  the courts., Mr. Hnrris got his charter  from the government anr!|not the city  council,'and the city council could not  therefore become plaintiff in   a   suit.  He (Mr. G.) was in-no way responsible'  for the acts of tlie council.   He always,  did the best he could for 7 the   council'  when asked to. act,   the, same   as   he  would for any other   client' and   that  was all there was to it.  Mr. Harris said he at no time, in auy  way,.shape or form, tried to influence  the council in any of their acts. If at  any time any ofiihe aldermen asked his  opinion'he gavo.it, and that was all.  He never.in any way suggested to them  what'.thev should'do wUh the Hume,  or any other public work, lu fact, he  had but one or two properties to be  affected by a freshetso far as the flump-  wais built, ho was no more interested in  it thun many ; another citizen though  he,was the largest tnxpaj'or in the  place, and had to bear much of tho  burden. As to Mr. David's water  grievance ho charged that gentleman,  but $2,50 what hw charter provided  for ii store-and residence. 'The operation of iiis system was very exponsi-c  and he had to have reasonable rates to  make it sel'-sustaiuing. The audience  appeared to fully appreciate the. way  he put his 'defence  Aid. Crawford said iie novel" in any  Wiiy had any conversation in the  .riiffcure of any agreement or compact  wif.11 any otherhlacksiuith as to charges  for ilume work, and he challenged any  man to prove he had. Hi., did whatever work w.is brought, to him by tii.e  superintendent, charged regular rates  for it, and,that is all he knew about it.  Beleived he did not do more work than  the other blacksmith. This closed the  speeches, though a sort, of running fire  was kept up as after clops for some  time longer.  The Washington has 0 foot of solid  ore.  The Whitewater   Deep   has  down for the present.  The Idaho mine was   damaged  other day by a biiow slide.  The Wakefield   near   Silverton  reduced its stafrfor a short time.

There are at present six men at work  on the R. E. Lee close to town driving  a 700 feet cross-cut to strike the ore at  a considerable depth. This mine, was  at one timea good shipper and is like- ���������  ly to yopn again appear oh the lists.  Rawhiders are now hauling ore for  Ihe tleco that is work $100 per s-ick of,  125 lbs. At this rite a car would be  worth from $15,000 to $20,000, At any  rate the Reco turns out the most 'valuable sdver ore known in the Wide  world.  Several men are at work on the Selkirk on tho Ruth hill. A fifty feet  shaft has been sunk on the lead , that  encountered ore all the way and now  a tunnel is being driven to strike the  lead whore that shaft if extended , 140  feet further would intersect it. Jt is  believed ivhen this work is done the  property can be called a .mine and a  good one.  Slocan City Looking Up.

'lhat there  has  been   more or less  friction  bet ween sections of the community   the /iast year,   over civic at-  airs, is  apparent to  every  one/ The  Revikw has   carefully tried   to avoid  sympathy with either section, but has  never shrunk lrom   pointing out  mistakes and suggesting remedies, which  is the proper province of a local paper.  In the first  place, a. serious  mistakp  was made in the first election   in barring   two   candidates   for aldcrrnanic  honors on technicalities which the law  would never support.    It gave   many  the impression that the intention of a  section of the people was to have a certain board,   no matter  what the community thought of it. '  Another mistake is in inequalities  of payments for salaries and other  services for work done. The people  believe in paying properly for actual  services, but not for time or, names  without equivalent service. The revenues of the city for 189S will be about  $13,000, and it is all, or nearly so, consumed, when the city ought to be run,  and can be run, on a very much smaller  sum.  Another mistake was in the way the  flume was gone about.    Most people  acknowledge that it was required ; but  tho requirements could have, been met  legally and not illegally, as they were.  In the first place when the council was  organized,    application   should   have  been made to the House, then in session, for power to alter the bed of the  creek.    Concurrently  with  this step,  the creek could have been  cleared  of  logs   and   boulders   to  carry off   the  spring freshets.   A taxpayer suggested  this to  the mayor, and that know-all  official   called him   a   crank   for   his  trouble.   It is unpleasant to say  the  least of it to be thus  treated  by  officials.   Then when  the  assessment roll  was re\isuu," and power had from   the  House to go  on with  the work,  a bylaw could have been submitted  in the  regular legal way for raising the necessary money.   Built  in   this way   it  would have cost less, and been legally  done.   Some think.that in view of the  special benefits certain ones  have derived from ithe work on the flume, the,  mayor for one instance, it should have  been done-by  a local tax;  but  that  argument is not so strong when  if, is  considered that the city is still in its  infancy, and other portions of the place  will   require   work of a   purely  local  character   also.     If   those   parts   are  equally liberally treated, the local taxation theory will, of course, be robbed  of its force.  As, however, past mistakes and  shortcomings cannot now be recalled,  the best step for the new council to  make is to take the ratepayers fully  into their confidence in all contemplated expenditures. In short it-would  not be a bad idea for the new council  to suggest a committee of ratepayers  to assist them in the consideration of  all expenditures. , At all events we  would like to see the taxpayers fully  considered as an element in civic government, and harmony restored all  around, that tho best- results for the  place maybe the most .cheaply- procured.        ,  cost the present owners millions each,  and after purchase it takes a lot of  money in labor, etc. to operate them  for average returns.  In the Slocan things are very different. The very best of the properties  that are now shipping have cost the  present owners but a few thousand  dollars���������it takes but comparatively a  moderate sum to work them, so that  when shipping, a large percentage of  the proceeds goes into profits for the  owners.  Though a large number of the mines  so far are but small shippers, because  of having; had but small expenditures  made on them, as development proceeds, many of them promise in time  to yield as well as the largest shippers.  These are the circumstances in tlie  abstract we desire to impress on pro  specfivc investors.  Under all tho circumstanecs,we have  but to repent what we have often said  before, that, it will be nothing short of  a calamity if the prospect, mine and  property holders of the Slocan do not  j make a united effort to properly advertise this country, by placing the bald  facts before the prospective investors  in mining properties wherever found.  A WOR1* TO CAPITA LISTS.  ',< * ���������������������������     Ji  The report we publish., in Other columns on the yield of the Slocan, is an  object lesson complete in itself for the  prospective investors in mining prop-  . erties. There is, comparatively speaking, but a very limited amount ol  money invested as tho first cost to the  . present owners of these shippers���������the  ''improvements mad;; being for the  most -part out of the operations the  mines themselves.  There is no concealing lhe������fact that  ���������there is a preference for gold properties; but there is no reason that will  stand a,moment's investigation why it  should be so. It.is returns on investments that, capitalists aie a/tar, and  they are here in infinitely.greater'profusion than they are to be found in  any other section of the country. We  have no desire to speak disparagingly  of any other section, nor do we intend  to do so. We are content to -allow the  ' facts and figures to speak for thorn,  selves. .:-.'.''  No doubt the LeRoi   and tlie. other  large gold properties  ol" the  Rossland,  district, are   very   valuable  holdings;  but it in equally . afact that they have  From tho appearances of the   Grit  papers that   are , supporting the   nq-  pacty government of the province o.  to-day, it ii quite evident the design  is to force Joseph Martin  to the front,  as they never lose an opportunity ol  calling it the   Martin-Semlin government.   That is they continually keep  the cart before   the horse that their  end may be obtained thereby.   Nothing   will   do   more to force   Federal  politics   into   the   provincial  House  than this, as  Martin  is the most distasteful Liberal  in the country to the  whole Conservative party and is deeply distrusted by many of the Liberals  besides.     Martin   at first declined to  enter the Semlin cabinet, hoping some  turn  would   bo   given the   wheel   by  which Hi!, the immortal Joseph, would  ne called  on   as premier.    That was  Scinlin's opportunity, were he a tactician of ordinary merit.   At that instant  he should   have ignored Joseph  for all  time and called in  some other Libera!  lawyer, some one less distrusted by his  own party, as Attorney-General.    Had  he done this, Joseph would have  had  no kick, as he refused the office,  and  the rest of  Semlin's following in  the  House would have been less influenced  by the party feeling.   Martin is one of  those men who knows not the meaning  of the word gratitude, and who has but  little regard   for tho opinions  or convictions of any one that he knows  is  not head and shoulders above him in  position   of   influence.     We arc confident that these two weaknesses will,  before long,   and perhaps   before  tho  coming session is well advanced, drive  some of Semlin's following into opposition,   and,. of   course,   cement   the  whole present opposition as an implacably hostile element.   It, was Martin  who  drove1. Roblin,    and Fisher,   of  Greenway's following in the Manitoba  House, into lasting, opposition, and as  Semlin's majority is precarious at best,  we may look for Joseph to be the rock  on tvhich   the government will go to  pieces.' .-  50C 50C.

The trustees of the Bank of England  who recently made a rich strike on the  Two Friends claim in driving a tunnel  to tnp the Bank of England lead, are  now within about 30 feet of their line  on the lead. All later reports corroborate the previous one in regard to the  strike. They sent three men to work  on the 28th ult., and it is their intention fo push through as rapidly as possible to the Bank of England which  shows a well defined ledge and rich ore  on the surface. This tunnel, which  they, are driving from lower workings  of the Two Friends,' taps the ledge at a  depth of 150 feet : and absolutely  prooves the continuity of the-Two  Friends ledge, which was lost on a  fault by the company which was previously operating oil the Two Friends  ground.; '���������.'-,'       ���������;   ;  The owners of the Two Friends also  contemplate putting a force of miners  to work to extract the ore from the  ledge and there is no visible reason  why the Two Friends should not soon  be classed again among the principal  producers of the country, in silver-lead  ores. It is self evident that the Bank  of England, who have already expended a large amount in driving the  tunnel, do not consider this a "Will 'o  wisp" as they are backing their judge-  riient with collateral.  Mr. D. E.. Seeleye has returned to  Slocan City from. the Alexander mineral claim, situated about two .-miles  above. Sandon, on north fork of Lemon  creek, where he has been engaged in  doing development work for the past  two months. Mr. S.-eleye is feeling  jubilant oyer the. outlook and thinks  that with the coming summer his days  of triumph will have arrived- Properly worked the Alexander mine will  be one of the principal producers of  the Slocan country. Mr. Scclcye departed to-day for Spokane, where the  principal owners of the Alexander reside. Mr. Scclcye is a man of wide  'knowledge in the mining business and  his judgement in matters pertaining  to mining is to he relied on owing to  liis wide, practical experience in.  Alaska, Lake, of the Woods and other  mining countries. His report of the  Alexander has created quite a furore  in miniHg circles, and goes a. long way  towards confirming the judgement of  other mining men who were pioneers  in this section. He reports that-at a  depth of1 60 feet from the surface by  crosscut, from shaft sunk last summer,  he encountered the ledge a few days  ago, and that it was fu!l3r. five feet in  thickness, nil high-grade.. It is hoped  that Mr. Seeleye and the' Alexander  company will malie the. necessary arrangements for the continuation of the  work which the showing already made  would merit and justify.  aC������<���������������<������������������������<������<c<������<S������C<���������,C������<������<S������<J'e,Sjg  <c^2*'  V  US/  vy  Barrister,    Solicitor,  Puplic, E'lC.

A Bright Young Life Passes Away With  the Old Year.'  The home of Mr. and Mrs. Jno. Jones  was most deeply saddened on Saturday  evening last by tho death of tneir eld-  ���������est daughter JSmijy, a most premising  young girl, 13 years of age. Emily  was never the strongest, as she was  growing beyond her years, and the  work and excitement of the season  culminated in* brain fever or spinal  meningitis. The disease overtook her  suddenly Wednesday morning rendering hi r doierious and, with the exception of a few rational moments the clay  previous, she never recovered to the  end. She was exceedingly bright in  school, prominent and intelligent in  all Sunday school undertakings and a  general favorite. ��������� It is hard for parents  in any walk in life to part with their  children, but doubly so when they are  intelligent and promising, as Emily always was. The'news of her death was  a shock to all her acquaintances, and  the sympathy of the townspeople for  the aillicted parents and litte sister is  therefore deep and universal.  The funeral on Tuesday morning at  7 o'clock from the house of Mr. and  Mrs. Yates, Cody ave., where deceased  was taken sick, to the C. P. R. depot,  was largely attended, particularly by  the members of the Union Sabbath  schoolsand adherents and members of  the Methedist church. The service at  the house was conducted by Revs. Sanford and Cleland. The pall-bearers  were six boys of the S. S. and the procession was led by deceased's girl companions and classmates. ,Thc remains  were shipped to Pennsylvania for interment, accompanied by the grief-  stricken mother, father and little  sister, Violet.  A False Report.  Mr. F. L. Christie says he is going to  commence actions for libel against  all 'and sundry, and especially the  newspapers that said he had gone and  done it; and, by the way, if he only  receives ten-cents lrom each one who  lias said so, it will amount to quite a  pot of money. The lacts, however, are  these: Mr. O'Brien, of the Vancouver  World, an old-time acquaintance, on  his own account, and ''without malice  aforethought," gave it out as a fact  lhat Mr. Christie was shortly going to  wed a curtain New Brunswick young  lady, and who. by the way, as a peculiar coincidence, lefr. New Brunswick  for Vancouver with.her parents a few  days previous. A New ''Brunswick  piiper copied'the paragraph from1 tlie  World, which niade the report to the  public a genuine announcement^ It  was further believed when Mr. Christie  in company -with Dr. Young left town'  on ashort trip last week. Lest we should  put a foot or two into the matter we  will say no more about it at the pre  sent excepting that Mr. Christie has  received many a congratulation on the  head of it.  , FOR OVER Fllj TV" YEARS. ,  Mrs. "Winslow's Soothing Syrup has been  used by millions of mothers for their children  while teething.
