 fy  II  VOL. 4.-NO. \ Op,  SANDON, B. C, SATURDAY, JANUARY 19, 1901.  in Over.  $2.00 PER YEAR.  The Old Council Sustained By Good  ���������Majorities.  ������   The battle   of the factions came oil' on  ���������'   Wednesday, and, as was   generally expected, all   but one   of   the   old   council who sought re-election, were  returned by substantial majorities.  As we intimatad in our last issue, no  one has anything but words of commen-  ' dation for R. Cunning as a man ; but it  is a very difficult thing to elect one respectable man against another equally  respectable in office.' and with who>e  record no fault of any moment can be  found. That was the situation in the  mayoralty contest.  Summed up the chief argument  against the old council was they hud no  systematic way of fining the unfortunate  women in the west end, and no regular  way of recording the fines as they were  collected.  As a law never contemplates making  the methods and lives of these  people a  source of   revenue   to any  corporation,  any method, systematic or otherwise, of  collecting money from them for revenue  is clearly illegal. 'The  meaning of   the  Jaw is either leave them  alone or drive  i hem out of the corporation altogether.  Of course, high  fines  for selling liquor  without licenses, would   make   them a  bill of expense on the people in sending  lliein to gaol and7 keeping  them  there.  ��������� ���������Prosecutions' for     their   methods   and  heavy   fines,   would .end in   much the  same way.   If it is revenue the peeple  are after, collecting as has been done is  perhaps   the   most   successful:   but, of  course, the integrity of   the collector in  making returns has in many cases to be  depended on alone.  The elections resulted as follows: i  matters in the interest of ��������� the growth,'  and,' therefore, the welfare of the place;  and on all such they ought always feel  the people in public meetings or otherwise.  ��������� FOR  MA YOB.'

The effort to take the management of  city* affairs and place it in the hands of  others, is hardly to be endorsed from  any point of view, and we are glad to  learn the people are looking at in that  way.

See  that all revenues are collected as far n*  possihle. ��������� and  that the receipts are re-'  ce.ved m the cash book, and properly  entered under all heads of expenditure!  J here  has   been   some carelessness in  these respects in the past, and which  has given rise to some of the unnecessary comment.   These matters referred  to only deal with routine work     Other  undertakings and expenditures are matters of policy; and on all such the public  should   be  conferred   with    whenever  practicable.   Our school teachers salaries are very small, and   if  the  council  would vote $250 to supplement them"  would be only doing their duty   to   the  young of the place.   We would   like   to  see the new,council take hold  of  more  Nelson ites.  Mr. G. O. Buchannan in a   letter to  the Nelson Miner agrees  with   us   that  a government bounty for the   export of  bullion or lead refined   is   the  proper  , solution of the   present  situation.    An  I export duty on ore might force our ores  to the present B. C. smelters and lead to  the erection of other  smelters,   but   it  would   never   take our  products  to   a  satisfactory market, and this is what we  want.  A sad accident occurred at the Ruth  mine yesterday morning by which John  Kennedy from Pipestone, Man., lost bis i  life. The deceased was a car man, and  had just emptied his car in an old chute  and was returning to refill, when by an  accident or overssght he stepped into  another chute at one side of his route,  and fell head first, a distance of SO   feet,  breaking his back and killing him instantly. No blame is attached to anyone as all the ordinary precautions for,  safety had been fully observed by the  management of the mine. The friends  have been advised of the sad accident.  Sandon Ore Shipments.  The following shipments of ore were  shipped from here this week:  Mine. Tons.  Payne  (57  I Last Chance.   I Sovereign ..'.

Eight inches of high grade ore, have  been struck in the Two Friends group  on Springer creek, which will tend to  boom that property and make it a regular shipper.

II  LOED MAYOR'S SECRETARY  A    PROMINENT    FIGURE    IN  WORLD'S METROPOLIS."  THE  W. .[. soulsliy, IM-lvnlc Secretary to I.ou  (ioti'.t E.orri Mayors for n Uuai'ter of a  Onliiry��������� KomliitMiciir.r.i  i>ui'lii^   1'licnc  Vc.'i rs.  For twenty-five years now has the  same private secretary mothered, as  it were, twenty-five Lord Mayors.  Upon him they have all more or less  iLepended. He is Mr. "VV. J. Soulsby,  who now celebrates his "silver" jubilee as secretary, and who has seen  more and knows more of the inner  workings of the mayoral machine  than any other living man.  A������r. Soulsby is pretty much what  you would imagine him to be.; perhaps a little more so. Bred almost  at the Mansion House���������for he is nob  yet fifty years of age���������in his tall  t>tature is embodied the city's courteous dignity. Besides being the moat  necessary, he is the busiest man at  the Mansion House; and they will  all tell you there that his knowledge  of all that pertains to Lord Mayors  passes understanding. People call  with questions, but before they are  half pmt Mr. Soulsby begins the answers, for they are both much the  same to-day as they were in 1875.  Sir Richmond Cotton, then ALP. also   for   the  city,   was   hia first   Lord  Mayor, and Mr. Soulsby well remembers  his  installation.  HAS HAD TW.liNTY-FIVU MASTERS  On this silver anniversary the private secretary is not unnaturally inclined to look upon what he described to me as his gallery of old  masters, with the memory of which  he would not, part for all the city  could give him. *  In his reminiscent mood Air. Soulsby  turns up accounts, and finds that in  the shapa and form, of Alansion House  charitable funds no less enormous a  sum. than ������4,000,0C0 has passed through  bis hands in these twenty-five years.  It is upon their shares of this total  that ex-Lord Mayors are most wont  to pride themselves. Till this year of  grace Sir George Fauilel-Phillips,  Lord Alayor of the Diamond Jubilee  time, was the record-holder with  ������557,000 for the Indian Famine Fund  and ������300,000 for other charities. The  outgoing Lord Mayor, however, with  ������1,022,000 for the widows and orphans  of the war and ������700,000 for other,  charities,  now takes first place.  Another responsible duty is the  hunting up of facts, for Lord Mayoral  speeches. Perhaps no one can realize  the difficulties of oratory so well as  the Lord Alayor. It Ls not that a  Lord Alayor cannot as a rule make  a good speech upon almost any subject under the sun; but the trouble  as it presents itself, is; that the exigencies of circumstances necessitate  the speech always being upon the  same subject, while the substance, if  each utterance is to have an interest of its own must be nightly different. It 'is. interesting and delightful  to the new Lord Alayor full of hia  new .dignity; but before the year is  out he may find it weary and sigh  for speech-making on other topics  than those of the deeds and aspirations of the one square mile.  VARIED. CORRESPONDENCE.  After all these years the private  secretary is used to handling between  six and seven hundred letters a day  at the Mansion House, and seeing two  or three hundred callers. The curiosities, of the Lord Alayor's po3t-bagare  many. His advice and opinion are  sought upon every subject, from the  taxation of bicyclea to imperial Federation, and the aeekers live in Cheap-  side and in every little corner of the  world.   Only a Lord  Mayor  can  re  alize in what high repute the office  J is held !by .folks, abroad. Some of them  ��������� Frenchmen, Germans, Italians,  Spanish.���������have heard of the iLord Mayor, but of no one else in London, and  hilm they regard as omniscient.  Every day brings its shoals of letters,* not only from; all parts of Great  Britain but from the colonies and  the continents as well. For the  most part the writers want advice,  and Lt is singular that a very large  proportion of them, foreigners especially, make earnest pleas to the  Lord Alayor to aid them in their  search for  long-lost  relatives.  All this is Air. Soalsby's business.  He thinks it is marvellous. The  prayers are not unheeded. In nearly  every case an attempt is made to  find the missing, either through the  instrumentality of the city police or  through the counsls of the foreign  couutries.1 Oftentimes, too, the efforts are successful, and there is  many a foreigner abroad w.ho knows  nothing of English, and who cannot  speak English, who in his own language blesses the wonderful and all-  powerful Lord Mayor.  Inmates of lunatic asylums all over  the couuLry write to the Lord Alayor  upon their grievances. Of the callers  the private secretary would put a  good percentage in a class of people  with grievances. Everybody wants  to see the Lord Alayor. But Mr.  Soulsby faithfully guards the presence. He sees them, all, and when  they have seen him they usually go  their  way.  AMONG  EXALTED  GUESTS.  But to the Mansion House.in these  two and a half decades have conic  many callers of the highest degree.  There have been the German Emperor,  the present Czar of Russia, .when  Cza re witch, and the two preceding  Czars, the young Queen of Hollaed,  before 'her accession, and the Queen-  Mo ther���������they lunched with the Lord  Mayor five years, ago���������the King of  the Belgians, who is a frequent visitor, the King of Sweden, the King  of Denmark, the King of Portugal,  King Charles of Roumanina, Prince  Ferdinand of Bulgaria, the King of  Greece, and the late Shah of Persia  twice. And besides them a hesf of  otiher foreign potentates'. Of course,  t!he Queen of England baa been to the  Mansion House, and the private secretary, in looking back, remembers  no more interesting event 'than when,  in 1887, after opening the People's  Palace in the East end, her Alajesty  came to the city's headquarters and  took leva with the then Lord Mayor,  Sir Reginald Hanson, and the Lady  Mayoress. A tapestry commemorating the event now; hangs in the Alansion Housa where the reception took  place.  London has' tendered Mr. Soulsby  its! best thanka. Ha is C.

And abroad they  have honoured him. He La a Chevalier  of the Legion of Honour of France,  and there have been bestowed upon  him also the Ordero of Francis Joseph  of Austria, of the Redeemer of Greece  of the Takovo of Servia, of the St.  Sava, also of Servia. of the Rising  Sun of Papan, of the Immaculate Conception of Portugal, of the Leopold  of Belgium, and. of the Humane Redemption of Liberia.  "I would like to say," he says,  "that every Lord Alayor with whom  I have been associated has treated  me with friendliness and kindness,"  and he aa'ys again how he cherishes  hia collection of old masters.  "Will youi add to the .-a another  tlwenty-five ?" I ask.  "That all  depends," he saya.  "Depends on���������V  "Tiie Lord Mayors."  FOR DRUNKENNESS.  S1<",K  T.t'n'cii  liy ,<>irv<:i'iii!iciil>. fo  IS inlitll/c  sSie Evil.   ,  Lt past centuries drunkenness was  not regarded as the great evil we now  look upon it io ne, and,-the extent of  effort having for its object the promotion of temperance, to say nothing  of total abstinence, was not to be  compared to what it is to-day, Sti'll,  the mischief of drunkenness was recognized 'to some degree, and the  various remedies, legislative and otherwise, were brought into operation  for its prevention and cure.  The method of the ancient Spartans was characteristic of those brave,  but callous people. The state owned  thousands of helots ��������� slaves���������and on  occasions these were compelled to become intoxicated in order that the  young Spartan mem might be afforded  a lesson on the horrors of drunkenness.  Under (he republic the Romans  were almost prohibitionists. Men of  honorable family were by law forbidden to drink wine until they reached  the age of 30, while women were not  to use it at all, except on festival days;  It is said that the practice of kissing  among women arose from the habit of  mothers kissing their daughters as a  means of finding! out if they had been  indulging surreptitiously.  Liquor laws have' generally provided  for special punishment for drunkards.  Some 'in existence in foreign countries  at the present day are most curious in  this respect, and in former times the  retribution chat fell upon topers, even  in our own land, was often peculiar.  Biuring the cottnm on wealth the  "Drunkard's .Cloak" was used in parts  of England. Instead of being a cloak,  however, it was a barrel which the  man who had been guilty of excess had  to wear in; his enforced Walk through  the streets or lanes. Tbis would seem  to ifbe worse than being placed in the  stocks, which were frequently used  for inebriates, but could not have been  so severe as riding  TEE "WOODEN HORSE,"  usually a military punishment. Army  drinkers were placed astride a wooden  erection, which mi'g-ht or might not  have had a remote resemblance to the  animal whose name it took, and so  bound that the position, soon became  one . of torture. Occasionally the  victim died. ' ��������� ���������  Among the early English settlers in  America it was customary to compel  the toper to wear suspended from his  neck a board on which, the letter D  was printed in red. Others had heavy  weights attached to their wrists, while  the hands and feet were chained together.  The steps taken by modern Governments show a praiseworthy anxiety to  minimize the evil, and in the main are  calculated to further that end. In  many towns of the-Argentine Republic  habitual offenders are not merely  fined, but are sentenced to eight days'  street sweeping for each offense, without option.  On the. continent, of Europe novel  schemes designed to prevent intemperance are in vogue. If a man gets drunk  and riotous in any public place of refreshment at Fribourg, in Switzerland,  he. is prohibited from visiting any  other, inn, cafe, hotel or similar institution in the republic for the space  of- a year. A list of names of such  persons is conspicuously displayed in  all the public houses.  In Norway and Sweden dipsomaniacs are punished, and often permanently cured at the same time. If the  man /be anj old offender he is sent off  tot jail, and for a fortnight or so has  nothing, to eat and drink but bread  and' wine. When the treatment is  finished the "patient'* hates liquor like  poison, and cannot''be induced to take  any for months, while Jn many casee  he becomes a teetotaller,   i  PAINS II THE BACK.  FREQUENTLY DUE TO SLUGGISH  LIVER OR KIDNEY TROUBLES.  ^r. Frjinlc Walters, of Exeter, Tells or Snf-  ircriiig and Mow Or. Williams' IMnh  Cm-crf lEim Alter Other .llctllclneft  Fit 11.til.  From the Advocate, Exeter.  Air. Frank Walters is a young man  personally known to most of the  residents of Exeter, where he has lived  nearly all hia  life.   Talking with the  editor of the Advocate   recently    Air.  Walters      said:���������"In    justice   to   Dr.  Williams' Pink Pills I    think    it  my  duty, In view; of .what they have done  for me, to add my testimonial  to the  thousands of others    that have  been  printed.     For same months 1 suffered  most severely from pains coursing- up  and  down my  back.   It was thought  that-   these    pains    w.ere due to liver  and. kidney trouble, but whatever the  cause they frequently left me in terrible agony.    The pains were not always confined to the back, but would  sjiift  to other parts of the body.  As  a result I got little rest, my appetite  became'impaired, and 1 fell tiff greatly in  weight. I tried different remedies suggested by friends, which having  no  effect    almost  disgusted me  with    medicine.      Then    a    personal  friend urged me to' try Dr. Williams'  Pink   Pills.      I  was  not  easily persuaded because I had about concluded  that  medicine  would not relieve me,  but  he  insisted and finally I decided  to try them.    I purchased one box at  first, and to my astonishment before  it  was finished I was greatly relieved.    Then 1 got a couple^more boxe-s  and these restored me to my former  good  health,       1 do. not hesitate recommending this medicine that others  may profit by my experience, and not  suffer tortures as 1 did."

IF YOU WANT GOOD HEALTH.  Never go to bed with) cold or damp  feet.  Never lean with the back upon anything   that  is cold.  Never take warm drinks and then  immediately  go  out  into the cold.  Never omit regular bathing, for,  unless the skin is,in active condition,  the cold will close the pores and favor  congestion   or  other  diseases.  After exercise of any. kind never  ride in an open carriage or near the  window of a train for a moment; it  is dangerous to health and even life.  When hoarse, speak as little as possible, else the voice may be permanently lost or difficulties of the  throat be produced.  Merely warm the back by the fire,  and never continue keeping the  back exposed to heat after it has become comfortably warm. To do  otherwise is debilitating.  . Keep the back, especially between  the shoulder blades, well covered;  also the chest well protected. In  sleeping in a cold room! establish the  habit of breathing through the nose,  and never with the mouth open.  to  like  be  30  THE   LATEST.

There is. an unfailing fascination in  the,, stories  of men    who    leave our  ���������shores, penniless and friendless, and  return after many years! loaded with  honors and riches; and no century has  produced    a richer  crop   of  brilliant  exile than the one which is now ending, says London Tit-Bits.  It is, perhaps, invidious, among so  ,   many successful  men,  to award  the  palm; but perhaps no man has ever  left his native land under more hopeless conditions and won more wealth  and honors, than the Right Hon. Lord  . Strathcona, G. C. M. G.  Sixty-three years, ago, a few months  before our Queen ascended the throne  Donald Smith grew weary of running  errands for a village, grocer in  MJorayshire,' and tempted fortune by  v- crossing the Atlantic in the steerage of a.sailing vessel, 'which after  ' a, voyage of thirty-six days landed  hilm penniless and unknown in New  York.    :  But the boy had plenty of Scottish  ffrit in,him"; and tramping over a  thousand niiles he found humble employment in the service of the Hudson Bay Company. From this very  lowly rung on the ladder of life he  fought his way resolutely, through  untold 'hardships, until he became  Governor of the Company, one of the  founders of the Canadian Pacific Bail-  way, a '.-millionaire'; peer, and Privy  Councillor. Thirteen years later another poor Scotch boy,  GEOJRGE STEPHEN,  abandoned the counter of a small  ���������Aberdeen draper and followed his;  cousin, Donald Smith!, across the Atlantic to Canada in search of better  fortune than the home country of fer-  ed him. '  ���������*"'.���������  . Canada proved to hiim, as; to Donald,  a "land of Goshen," for his progress  to wiealbhl and fame wag rapid! From  being an assistant in the draper's  dhop of his cousin, William Stephen,.  fc.e became in turn manufacturer, Governor of the Bank of Montreal, and  President of the Canadian Pacifio  Bail way, which he bad largely helped to construct.  Then came honors, a baronetcy, followed by a peerage; and to-day the  one-time draper's; apprentice is known  as; Lord Mount-Stephen, n millionaire  of many princely charities;, the owner of Scottish imoora and three palatial homes.  When George Stephen first put foot  in Canada Andrew Carnegie was firing boilers; and tending engines, in  Hay's bobbin-factory in Allegheny  City, and "waking-up at night, sitting  bolt upright in bed, hands clenched,  brovys. knitted, from dreams about  trymg the steam gauges, and finding  them wrong!" How the engine-  tender of thirteen on a few shillings  a week became one of the richest  millionaires, in the world is too well  known to need recapitulation. Scotland may well be proud of tihe three  boysj who leflt ,her .aUsorea pjennilessJand  returned within half a century hav  ing won a G.C.M.G., two peerages., a  baronetcy,- a Privy Councillorship,  and probably $150,000,000. It is such  "exiles" as these, who make the .name  of Briton a word to conjure with in  every part  of the earth.  Canada^ too, brought fame and fortune to young  MACKENZIE BOWELL,  who, as; a boy of ten, left his native  village in Suffolk, in very despair of  making enough'to live on,-and began  hia. life-work as "printer's devil" in i _.  a -Belleville printing-office.

The Kootenaian does not take kindly  to  our  opinion   of  an export duty on  silver-lead ores.   Au export duty of any  percentage simply means so much oft'  the value of the ore to the shipper whenever   and   wherever  marketed,   when,  from   present  appearances,   the   B. 0.  shipper   has   all   lie  is able to contend  with, and another burden might prove  the last straw.   The reason the Nelson  Tribune advocates the export duty is, as  the Kootenaian, though apparently unconsciously, admits, because Nelson has  a smelter to force   the  transmission of  our ores to the Nelson smelter.   If the  Nelson smelter was in a shape to handle  all our ore at a shade  more  advantageously to the Slocan producer  than   the  American smelter trust was up to lately,  we would say put on the export duty by  all means.   As  it  is  not, however, we  have to deal with matters  as   they are,  and not with  theories or probabilities.  The replies of the Tribune and Kootenaian doubtless will be if the present smelters of the province cannot offer the producers the   markets   they should   have,  the export duty will lead to the erection  of  more   smelters.   Well, supposine: it  would, what then?   Would it also open  up    a    satisfactory    market    for   our  bullion.     That's-.the   rub.     The   one  and only reason our producers want to  deal with the American smelters is because after smelting, the United States  offer the best market m the world for  our bullion, freight, length of   time  in  getting   returns,   insurance, and    all  charges    combined.     The   Kootenaian  quotes the 1900 prices of  lead   in   New  York and London, but this is not fair to  the American  market, as much of the  oroducts  of  the smelters are marketed  at points nearer home, where the prices  are   the  same  as   New York   and the  freight much less.  What the Review especially favors is  a bonus on export, which will enable  B. C. producers after smelting at home  to market wherever the prices are most  favorable. If that bonus was sufficiently  large the export duty might follow without bting a bar to success.' As we said  above, an export duty with the produce! s at the mercy of one or two B. U  smelters and prices in England, all  things considered, no better than in the  States, it could only prove injurious.  What we want is more local smelters,  and such government aid to the industry as will enable us to sell advantageously in whatever markets are offered  to us.  PARTY CANDIDATES.  Our neighbor is at length getting his  eyes opened to the "true inwardness"  of politics, Up to a few months ago he  was a most ardent Tory; and all at once  he appeared on the scene a full fledged  Labor party man, denouncing the Tories  as wildly as he ever before had denounced the Grits. He is now again  coming to the conclusion the dominant  party at Ottawa is buying up the Labor  party leaders, which will leave that  party "a legless stocking without a  foot," as the Irisman defined nothing.  The history of party the world over  has shown two parties in any House are  as many as ever succeeded any length of  time anywhere.   The old parties do not  "     BABY     LAUGH  It belongs to health, for a  baby, to eat and sleep, to laugh  and grow fat.

SCOTT & EOWNE,   Chemisu, Toronto.  want their there lines broken in on and  they will try every device to prevent it,  chief of which is the trick our neighbor  complains of. All that is necessary to  cany conviction with anyone but a fool,  is to watch the course of all third party  candidates, and it will be seen for a time  they make a show of independence and  then disappear in the ranks of their  favorites as before. Where are the old  time Liberals under Baldwin and Lafon-  taine? coalesced with the Liberal-Conservatives. Where is the Temperance  party that came out with such a flourish  of trumpets a few years ago? back with  the Grits and Tories. At one time the  Patrons were stronger than ever the  Labor party was, with its candidates by  the score, and where, are they all now?  emerged witb^the Liberals and Conservatives, and so it will be.in a very short  time with the Labor party.  What the electors want to see is that  men of honor are elected to see justice  done all parties in the country, with sufficient ability to present and press their  points well, and with sufficient independence to vote against a bad measure of  their o vn party. If such.are always  placed in the field as candidates for  representation, the country will have no  occasion to dread the results.  Is a Big Industry.  ��������� - ^  Is mining a pernament industry, asks  tho Denver, Col., Mining Reporter, and  then goes on to give the following facts:  This year; the Empire mine at Grass  Valley, California, completed the fiftieth  year of its continuous and profitable operation. During that period it has pio-  duced something over $8,000,000 worth  of the yellow metal, which is at the rate  of $160,000 per year, and is still yielding  at a rate considerably better than the  average of the half century. The mine  has been worked to a depth.of 2,500 feet  on (he slope of the vein.  Since the beginning of the mining industry in Westralia in 1886, up to July  1st of 1899 (14J������ years) the production  of gold has amounted in value to $������6,-  804,715; of copper to $536,325, and of  tin to $527.310.. The gold output of 1899  was $31,233 655. In this colony is the  famous mining camp Kalgoorlie, where  most of the production of gold has occurred. The metal here is largely associated with tellurium.  W. S. DltBWRr h. T. Twig*  Sandon, B, C.       New Denver, B. C.  DREWRY & TW1GG  1 Dominion and Provincial Laud Surveyors.

It is a gieat pity the fair name of the  place should be subjected to such accusations of boodling, when there is such/  an easy way of clearing up the whole  matter. If any tax-payer will bring a  list of lines collected and said to be not  accountedfor the editor of this paper he  will go with the party making the accusations to the officials, examine the cash  books and ahow to the satisfaction of  the complainant whether or not the  collections are accounted for. If any  are not accounted for we will do our  best to have the defaulting official turned  out of office. It is simply a damnable  practice to be continually blaming councils and officials on mere,, unsupported  hearsay, the hearers and the hearsayers  often being without the slightest reliability. If this thing is allowed to continue no man of any respectability will  hold office in the place. We venture to  assert there is not a man in the place  who knows of one single fine that he has  any right to believe is unaccounted for.  We belive it is all the outcome on the  part of a few to get friends in to positions  for the shekels it may place in their own  pockets. It may be a laudable scheme  on their part; but it is a pity the reputation of the place and the people should  be disgraced for such a purpose.  Pekin, Jan. 15th.���������Prince Chung and  his staff'were a long time in the Forbidden  City today.    Accompanied by the  chief eunich, they saw a woman servant  guarding   the  imperial   seal.   She produced the peal and the papers were sealed in her presence, and   then   the  seal  was returned.   Owing to the latehess of  the hour the papers thus sealed will not  be presented to the foreign envoys until  tomorrow.    In the American section a  court of justice will come into being and  operation tomorrow.   The death'penalty  may be inflicted for murder, manslaughter, attempted murder, counterfeiting,  looting and burglary.   It may   aleo   be  inflicted upon those known to have been  Boxers who.have done injury to life _ or  property.     Other   punishments,    like  whipping, imprisonment, and the imposition of fines can be inflicted.

The bear  garden .developed  at   the  public meeting on  Wednesday evening  shows conclusively Sandonites are standing thickly but distinctly in   their  own  light.  Mr. David's, a tailor, chief grievance was because the police  authorities  had not traced up some cases of clothes  Htealing; MivBuckley, a hotel man, believed the unfortunate womenshould be  lined for selling liquor without a license;  aud Mr. Harris gavethe people to understand he was forced to make  too   many  street and public  improvements,   considering the. taxes his realty has to pay.  Every man argued from his own purely  personal standpoint, and   eo  it   is  all  along the line.  Now, what Sandon wants is local  enterprises and industries to bring  families to the place, and while those  who have charge of public affairs can  look no farther than personal interests,  no improvement need be looked for.  If instead of  wrangling  over   these  purely  selfish  matters,   the   business  people of  the  place  would   take  the  initiative in assisting in the erection   of >  a smelter somewhere in the '-vicinity  of I  the town,'that would bring &  large  in- <  dustrial population to  the  place,  then  erect  residences for the fa Dailies that  would   follow, next secure an electric  light  and water system controlled by  the city,,the place will have made long  strides in advance,  There are also several other interests  could well be established Jn the place  that would materially advance the business of the place and advance its states  as a thrifty community. ,,'.'.'"'���������  "We often grow literally tired listening  to the commotions and recriminations  indulged in by several who ought to  know better, and all over trifles of purely personal matter.  Wc would suggest that the new city  council, when seated, should call all the  mine owners of the vicinity together at  an early, day, and discuss' the smelter  question with them in a business way,  and see what can be done to encourage  the erection of a smelter in the place.  In so far as the Review is concerned,  we intend in the future to pay but little  .attention to these personal matters, let  them stew in their own juice, but will  give our best attention to what may be  of general interest on the lines we indicate. The personel of the council is a  matter of but little importance compared with its policy and enterprise.

"1 thought you said a few weeks  ago that you had more land than you  couid well use, and wanted to sell  some,1' was Mrs. Greyson's quiet reply- '  "f remember all that well enough,"  somewhat nettled at the inopportune  reminder, "but I have thought of  a thing or two since then���������I intend  to put the outlying land to pasture  and buy ��������� some more of those shorthorns tor you. You would like, to run  a large dairy, wouldn't you, Mary?"  The wife hesitated before, replying;  already her work; overtaxed her  strength; but on -ihe other hand her  dairy was the only means by which  she could hope to make a dollar for  her own or her daughter's use* and  many things were required.  "Yes," she said at last, "I am willing to milk more cows if you will get  them; now that Kate is at home we  can manage, I think."  , "That's right,'' be replied, heartily.  "You know what is the right thing to  do and you do it. I will always say  that for you, Mary���������you have done  your share, since we was married;"  and he smiled on her. approvingly.  Mr. Greyson had obtained ������by his  marriage every dollar he possessed,  but that was so long ago that he ceased to think, of. it, particularly as  everything was entirely under his  own control.  Mrs. Greyson was a judicious woman, and it occurred to her that now  while he was in so happy a mood, was  the time to make the request that  had been tremlbing on her lips all  the evening.  "Can   you   go   to   town   to-morrow,  Len ?"    she    said   with   commendable  calmness, considering  the scene that  .was  inevitable.  The farmer seemed to scent danger,  a small portion of the provisions she  was made responsible - for, but she  wisely  said  nothing.  Great was the disappointment of  Kate on finding that instead of the  dainty white frock she had hoped for,  her father brought a dark checked  j gingham, very suitable for morning  wear about the farm, but hardly the1  thing for a girls first party. ��������� ������  "It is the very thing you need," he  said, as she looked with tearful eyes  at the coarse ��������� fabric "I don't care  how a thing looks that I wear. You  don't hear me complain.of the color  of my clothes. All I require is  strength nad durability, and you  should learn to feel as- I do.-Your  mother has made a baby of you all  your life, but ft is high'time you. began to have womanly notions." And  without stopping to note the effect  of his words, the farmer strode from  the room.  ; A roguish look' had'chased the tears  irom Kates face,'and thei cornersof  her mouth began1 to curl with ^suppressed mirth.  The party was of course given up,  but Kate was reconciled to that by  a hew idea that possessed her, driving away everything of lower interest. V    -;    ;  "Yes," she said, demurely, "I am  taking your advice and* trying not to  be, vain, as I once was, and not to  think so much of the looks of things.  Come now, if you:are through supper,  and see  tie suit." "/ *'     r '   '  It was spread'out in'state, on the  parlor sofa'.   Kate  took 'up  the' coat'  and  vest,   which were  alike  in   hue,  a dirty brick color, with a large check  of green.  "We bought the .cloth very; cheap  on account of the color���������the clerk  said he could not soil it for any price  as a general thing,- and;would let it  go for almost nothing. So as the  clcTh is good, and, durable, and we  knew you would hot care-for iodksi  we  took   it.  Affecting not to notice her father's  displeased looks, Kate took up the  trousers, which were of a tawny  yellow.  "This  cloth   was  even.,1 cheaper.   It.  does  not   match   the  coat  and  vest, j  but of course you won't care for that  ���������it is  so firm  and'strong.  Farmer Greyson turned a wrathful  countenance on  his  wife.  "What  did  you  mean  by  allowing  that  child, to  spend  my.money   for  such stuff as this?" he said, angrily.  "1 am sorry if you are not pleased,"  began his wife, feeling very doubtful  as  to  the result of Kates scheme;-  But Kate  interrupted! her.

After he was fairly gone, Kate fell  to work m good earnest, and with  such help as her mother wmld give  was ready for her father by' the time  set for his return.  After the greetings were over, and  the three, father, mother and daughter, were seated at the tea table, Kate  said gayly:  "I hope, father, you will be pleased  with your new suit, for I made it almost alone, did I not, mother f"  "That is right; I am glad you are  taking my advice and settling down  to womanly ways.

WAYS TO STOP. A COLD.  i  First, bathe the feet in hot water  and drink a pint' of hot lemonade.  Then sponge with salt water and remain in a warm room. Second, bathe  the face in very hot water every five  minutes for an hour. Third, snuff up  the nostrils hot salt water every three  hours. Fourth, inhale ammonia or  menthol. Fifth, take four hours' exercise in the open air. A ten-grain  dose of quinine will usually break up a  cold in the beginning. Anything that  will set the blood actively in circulation will do it. But, better than all,  if your cold is inveterate or serious,  consult your family doctor, and at  once.  NOTES.  Mustard is a valuable remedy that  no family should be without. Two or  three teasyoonfuls of iground mustard stirred into one half pint of water will act very promptly as an emetic, and it is milder and easier to take  than   salt   and  water. '  The best remedy for faintnoss is to  lay the patient on the floor or sofa,  with the head on a level or slightly  lower than the body. Loosen all clothing and allow the air to play freely  round the body. Sprinkle the hands  and face with cold water.  Green vegetables should be taken  daily. It is not sufficiently known  that green vegetables iare splendid  purifiers of the blood. They should,  however, be well-cooked. Half-cooked  vegetables  are  most indigestible.  GOOD TEMPER A DUTY.  When it comes to be recognized more  generally, as it ought to be, that  good temper cannot only be cultivated, but is a Christian duty, and that  one has no moral right to inflict gloom  and despondency upon the home members of the community, we shall doubtless see a marked change for the better. Doubtless a sunny disposition is  natural to some and not to others;  but all may acquire this as well as  any other virtue; and its possession  is one of the strong recommendations  of one's religion. There is no reason  why one member of the family���������say,  the unselfish mother���������should supply  all the sunshine for the home.  HAIR MASSEGE.  As a rule, hair that is turning gray  and falling, can, in a woman under  50. be checked in its evil courses by ]  keeping it very clean, using a soft  brush lightly and by aid of one finger massage, says an authority on  hair. The charm of massage is that  it not only brings out a new growth,  but brings it out even darker than  the natural color of the old hair. Any  patient and sufficiently ambitious individual can help his' or her hair by  massaging it correctly. There is ,a  general and erroneous impression that  to rub the scalp is to massage it.and  so serious an error is this, that if a  perfectly healthy heavily thatched  head is rubbed faithfully and persistently  all the hair  will drop out.  To massage rightly and effectively  place one finger with a firm but not  severe pressure on any spot and with  it push the loose scalp under it with  a regular, rotary motion. After a few  seconds move the finger along to another point and repeat the process,  but never permit the finger end to  slide upon or rub the scalp's surface.  It seems a tedious method of inducing hair to grow, but for all its slowness it is sure, as no other process  is, whether by aplication of patent  liquids, or no."  DEFECTS  OF EYESIGHT.  The three defects' of eyesight which  are most commonly encountered in  otherwise healthy persons and which  can be more or less perfectly overcome by means of glasses are nearsightedness, far-sightedness and astigmatism. These are all important,  for, besides the discomfort and annoyance of imperfect sight, the involuntary efforts which the sufferer makes  to see better strain the eyes and not  only injure them, but also give rise,  through reflex action, to headaches  and various nervous diseases.  Near-sightedness, short-sightedness  or myopia, as it is variously called,-is  a condition of the eyeball,���������usually a  lengthening���������in consequence of which  the rays of light are brought to a  focus in front of the retina, and so  the object is bluYred.  .   Many near-sighted people refuse to  FOR THE TEETH.  Mix one ounce of charcoal, as" much  quinine as will lie on a dime, five  grains of magnesia, and a.few drops  of attar of roses. Both a soft and a  hard brush should be used, and the  upper teeth brushed from the top  downwards", the lower tooth from fcho  bottom upwards. The inside of the  teeth require to be brushed in the  same way. Besides the usual brushing twice a day, the teeth should bes  brushed with soap three or four times  a week. This; is not at first pleasant,  but it is very beneficial to the teeth.  Soap is an alkaline preparation, besides being antiseptic, and it also helps  to remove the tartar.

Angell,  publisher  of    Our  Dumb Animals, calls attention to the  TO PREVENT SPREADING.  It is a duty which we all owe to  each other to prevent the spreading  toothers of any infectious disease we  may have among us, but many well-  meaning people are,often careless in  little matters, such as writing letters  from a sick room, etc. Children should  not be sent to school from a house  where any infectious disease exists,  nor to church, meetings, inside omnibuses or cabs, nor, indeed, to any  crowded places. Toys should be burnt  after the invalid has used them, and  never sent to any other children. Lin-  1 en  and   bedding,  of  course,  must  be t  disinfected    before    sending to  laundry  sick room. Books from a circulating  library taken into an infectious room,  and then returned, is. a very usual way.  of spreading disease. All books and  papers which are used in the room  should be burnt.  Dogs and cats should never be allowed to come near the patient as  they may convey the infection in their,  fur to other people..  Every utensil used by the sick should  be frequently washed in disinfectants,  and also the nurse's hands, and water,  soap and a clean towel should be  ready for the doctor to do the same.  A' sick room is better without carpets  or hangings, but if there are curtains  let them be of some washing material.  Food must never stand in the room,  and cups, glasses and tea cloths may  be kept on a table cutsido.

The Bondholder near New Denver has  a foot of good ore.  There are some 35 feet of ore in one <.f  t 'e tunnels and alsoo in'o:ie of the uj ������  ���������raises of ihe Wonderful.  The Miller Creek Co. have a car of ore  ready for shipment, awaiting the adjustment of smelter differences.  Messrs. McKenzie,' McClcllan and  Savage have secured the 100 foot contract at the Rulh mine in their No. 5  tunnel.  Eight inches of high grade ore have  been struck in the Two  Friends group 1  on  Springer creek, which  will  tend to  boom that property and make it a regular shipper.  The American Boy has completed ar-  rungt-nients with the Nelson smelter to  handle it? output for the present, t.o it  will go on steadiJ;' and vigoiously in its  operations.  The Enterprise has made a new  strike. It is in the form of 15 inches of  high grade shipping ore discovered in  crossculting, to reach a lead that had  been" previously worked.  Mr. Biader, i.f the American Smelter  Combine met the silver-lead minesasso-  ciation heiv on Saturday, and  from  re-  ���������     ports he has but little to offer in thewav  of easing the suspense.    Fie  intimated  that his combine would  be   in   a  .short  time in a'position to make its best offer,  and that is all.   There   is  one  of   two  matters staying a settli-mcnt, and   the  public   cannot   tell   which.    Either the  coin bine is  pretty well  loaded with wet  ore, or. it   is   trying  to drive a bur^ain  with the railways that is not easilv driven.    Until the one of  these involved is  disposed of,   to the   public  the sintlter  question will not appear muco different.  .G.

As soon as either  the slide comes down or the Last Chance  tram can handle  his  timber, G. B. will  start up with a fair force of men.  The first copper bessetnerizirig plant  to be brought into this province will be  installed at the Greenwood smelter.  Yesterday 1-J. V.Croil, of Spokane, western representative of the E.
