Array VOL. 4.���������NO. 0.  SANDON, B. 0., JULY 14, 1900.  $2.00 PER YEAR.  Government AM.  It will be admitted-all around that the  great lack of our mining districts is capital. We have the wealth in the rocks,  but are without the means to bring it  out.- In such cases even outside capital  is a,great service; but outside capital  carries all profits away, and many of the  purchases that should be made in tho  locality. It is a blessing, but not an  unadnlteratedone.  As .we pointed out, in onr last issue,  all this would be overcome if the government would only come to the relief  of property holders, and where there  were strong assurances of successful  urospecls, advance sums from time to  time, on the I'redit of the property, to  assist development. Under the supervision of competent government inspector risk would be reduced to a minimum, and all the benefits accruing from  local capital would naturally follow. ��������� As  lhe jackal! becomes the lion's provider,  to the prospector becomes the provider  lor the outside capitalist as matters  stand. ./Hie men who undergo all the  privations of locating properties and  should in justice, and in the country's  interes-t, btcome lhe beneficiaries, get  the chafi" while the outside capitalists get  the w heat. What is wanted in this case  is a government willing to help the pros-  doctor in developing his property until  it becomes paying���������work to be done and  expenditures niade under the direction  of its own officials. ' No line of action of  any government, in any omntry, could  be more serviceable to its own deserving  people.  take possession of a room at the rear,  fronting on the east. Next after the  Bank comes the wide'stairway .to the  upper flat. Next are stores to be occupied by C. Gale, barber, and McQueen,  druggist, E. R. Atherton taking the  south-west corner. The post office will  be in an apartment to the rear of Ather-  ton's, with an entrance on the west side.  Mr. Christie, lawyer. Dr. Power and  others will have offices upstairs, on  which flat there will also be a spacious  hall for the secret societies of the place.  In all its appointments the premises  will have all modern conveniences to be  a comfort to all the occupants.  Since writing the above there has  been some slight changes made. There  will be one or two more front street  apartments, the post ollice will be in the  front instead of the rear, and, we believe,  Mr. Atherton assumes proprietorship.-  From Far and Near.  They Are All Coming to It.  John Houston, in dealing with the  voters' lists used.last in Nelson and the  Slocan, says, "There are names of men  on these lists who have been out of the  country for years," and he objected to  the revisions before the elections, by  which it was hoped these names would  have been struck off. He objected on  tho ground that "if the revising officer  is a fair-minded man he hesitates to remove names at the demand of political  henchmen and hirelings." Carry out  such logic and see wheie it will land us.  Turn Jones lays an information against  William Smith for the murder of John  Brown. It is known that John Brown  I1 was murdered, just a3 it is known���������  through Houston's admission���������that there  were bogus names on the voters' lists.  I!>The courts rufns-e to hear tho evidence  f\ of Tom Jones against William Smith be  '/ cause somebody, lor political effect, says  thai, Jones is "a political henchman or  hireling." Justice would fare well under such an administration of the law as  that.  The Wood Block.  ft*       '    ������  Preparations, in the way of removi ng  buildings from the site, are being made  for the erection of Mr. Wood's new brick  block,- which  will be   under way in a  week or two.

Ore shipments from Whitewater for  the week were: Whitewater 104 tons.    -  The Messrs. Thompson, of New Denver, are said to have an excellent strike  oh their property on Silver mountain.  The Galena Farm is shortly to have a  concentrator. It has very large bodies  of concentrating ore embracing zinc, galena and other values.  The Sandon ore shipments for the  past week were: via K. & S.���������102 tons  for Last Chance, and 40 for Slocan Star;  via O. P. R.���������150 tons for Payne. , For  week ending Julv 7 via C. P.

There are zinc  values in the mine, and tho idea of this  lower tu:inel is to strike galena below  the zinc.  The Emily Edith has a vein of concentrating bre 55 feet wiJe,. which is  supposed to be the widest in the Slocan.  That of the Ivanhoe runs from 10 to 20  feet. During the past three vears, the  Silvertonian says, one. mile, of underground workings have been made. The  property has some of .the best buildings  iu the country. The new'.'company, are.  likely to erect a mill and work the property on an extensive scale.  The threatenings of the weather prevented many from taking the 7:45 train  from Sandon, but nevertheless about 100  were aboard when she pulled out, to be  joined by reinforcements at Three Forks.  By the time the boat had picked up the  New Denver and Silverton contingents  the number had swelled to over 200.  The train from Nelson brougt in even a  larger number so that there were about  500 visitors in Slocan at 11 a.m. A procession of the principal streets followed  made up as follows: Marsh'alls, Sandon  brass band, Sandon lodge! Nelson citizens' baud, Nelson lodge, local fife and  drum band and Slocan lodge.  After dinner another procession was  formed leading to the ground, where  several addresses were given. On account of the bad arrangements as to  timing the program the speeches encroached on the amusements and the  amusements on the speeches, doing a  certain amount of injustice to' all. Had  time been allowed Squire Lovatt he  would have given an account of his old  country trip and shown the principles of  Orangemen were seeming liberties for  all chtsses of the people and all religious  denominations. It is only justice to the  Slocan people" to' say they must have  spent much time in the decorations they  had erected for the occasion, and but for  the oversight in timing the program  everything would have oeen periect.  A football contest between Sandon  and Slocan after an-exciting time, resulted in a scoie of 3 to"0 in favor of Slocan. It is simple justice to'the Sandon  boys lo say, that though the3' have several as good individual players as there  are in the country for the lack of sporting grounds and, therefore, team practice, they are never in shape to play a  good match. As in lacrosse every man  wants to know how far' he can depend  on his colleagues so in football, a knowledge they cannot get without team  practice.  The best game of the day was between  Silverton and Nelson teams, who were  well matched in every way. Owing to  a "kick" over a new Silverton player  the match was declared oil'and was oil by  played as an exhibition game. At the  end of an hour's bard kicking the score  stood 1 to 0 in favor of Silverton.  The hitch over the Silverton team  made a short, contest ot the football  tournament, leaving the $200 prize to  the local team lo dispose of as they  please, which perhaps accounted for, iii  a measure, the groans tendeied a certain  Slocan footballist prior to the boat leaving the wharf.  A junior match between New Denver  and Slocan resulted in a victory for the  kids from the former place.  The bands enlivened proceedings during the afternoon and a pleasing feature  was the playing of several selections in  unison by the Nelson and Sandon bands,  making a strong combination.  On account of uncertain weather some  of the minor amusements had to be dispensed wilh.  ���������Tho Sandi'.n people arrivedhome'after  10 feeling jolly, but not more so, mid  well pleased with tlie trip to the'pretty  Slocan Lake foot,city. ��������� UnGsnwQfflnurgawum*'*'  Tlie Mining Review.  SATURDAY, JULY 14, 1900.  PULL TOGETHER.  -The man or body of men who undertake to manage any of the public affairs  of Sandon at the present, and hope to  give a reasonable'degree of satisfaction,  must be possessed of rare abilities indeed. Scarcely half a dozen men can be  found with like opinions on re-platting  the town. Some want a wide street  on the flume, . and others oppose it.  Some want old Reco ave. to be as before,^  fire traps and all, and others don't.  Some want a cross street here, others  want-one there,'and others again seem  to want them no where. Some want the  relief money distributed pro rata, others  on a sliding scale, others want it in  public streets where their interests most  direct. Some want to see law and order  observed, with sobriety and order 311 the  public streets at least, and others desire  to see pandemonium prevailing in every  corner of the place, with neither schools,  churches nor educational institutions of  any kind, and the worst of all is that  any section that hole's any one of these  views on any of the public matters is  ready to fly at the throat of any body  who holds opposite views on any one of  the subjects.  It is but reasonable to look for selfishness in all the affairs of life; but selfishness must be governed by common  sense. And common sense suggests, to  build up a prosperous community, that  there imis1 be give as well as take among  the people. The man who looks at  nothing but the few cents he is to make  immediately out of every deal or turn in  public matters will very frequently find  himself an impediment to the prosperity  ot the community in which he lives.  Much of this lack of unity among the  people of Sandon arises from the fact  that they have but little talk with one  another over the future of the place.  Some think that because it is a mining  camp, the surrounding mines will give  out in a few years and the place will  then become extinct, therefore, the idea  is to make the most while the sun  shines, on the principle of "catch as  catch can." This is a sad mistake.  Prom the way new properties are turning up here week after week, Sandon, is  a place to remain for ages, and the bent  of present residents should be to give it  a proper foundation. Although the 6ite  is but what some people term''a gulch,"  there is plenty of room in that gulch for  all the business places the town will  ever require and plenty of room, in safe  places on the side hills for a large residential community. The main idea  then is to stait the town and all our institutions right, and no time will ever  be more opportune for a proper commencement than the present.  Ic appears to us tliat the organization  of a Board of Trade taking in all the  business men of the place and holding  frequent meetings* would do much to  unify public feeling on all matters affecting the present and the future of the  place. Many men hold extreme views  on several matters- merely because the  other sides never present themselves to  him.   At Board of Trade meetings' all  these things could, be properly dealt  with. What the place wants is unity of  action���������a pull all together. If we secure this Sandon may be made a pros-  peious place���������an enterprising business  centre. Under a system of continual  pulling and hauling, the most enterprising and progressive of the present population will be driven away, and there  will be no others come in to take their  places. '      '' '  The first consideration of all in the  present re building of the town should  be fire protection and good sanitary conditions, and every man who starts to  put up a good building, to establish a  business needed in the place, should be  encouraged by proper inducements in  rents, taxation .etc., rather than driven  away by extortionate demands in any  direction.  r    McINNES A POLITICIAN.  In Mclunes' correspondence with the  Hon R. W. Scott the following passage  occurs: "Martin was accepted as the  Libeial leader." 'He knew he was lying  when he said that as he was only accepted by a forced majority of those of  Vancouver, and rejected by the Provincial convention of Liberals. Mclnnes  then goes on to say: "This will mean  the unification of what was a badly-disorganized party, and I trust you will be  disposed to recognise, as a side iisue of  course, the service my action has rendered here." Here he admits he called  on Joseph because he 'was u Liberal  leader and asked the Ottawa authorities  to recognise, as a side issue of course,  the seivice he did the Liberal party in  making a Liberal leader out of Joseph.  His oath of office enjoined non-partizan-  ship upon him and his great zeal for  Liberalism occasioned him to overlook  its obligations and seek promotion for  his chivalry. This alone should have  ousted him from tlie Lieut.-Governor-  ship. To Laurier's credit, it mii3t be  said, he recognised Mclnnes' side iESue  in a grand bounce. When we find Mclnnes henceforth fighting Laurier, his  continued zeal for Liberalism will become the more apparent.  Before the Dunsmuir government has  even settled down to business, the  prophets are at work foretelling weakness in its future legislation. It is true  that the Hon. Mr. Dunsmuir has had  occasion to carry certain enactments of  the provincial parliament, that some  wise-acres contend ought to have remained on the statute books, to the  higher courts for their decision thereon.  It matters not whether it was personal  or public interest that induced him to  take that step, as the fact tliat they  were declared bad was a full vindication  of his proceedings. It matters not how  much a number of people may think of  the wisdom and importance of any legislative measure, the fact that the courts  decide it is illegal, is a full justification  of its repeal or cancellation. No statute  that is illegal can be, goodin the public  interest, no matter what self-constituted  authorities may say to the contrary.  The new House will meet in a few days,  and if its legislation is good, that is all,  the people have to consider. "The  proof of the pudding .-is in the eating  thereof," and if the eating is satisfactory  the pudding must be considered satisfactory.  '' At a trustee meeting at Kaslo one day  last week, Mayor McAnn said: "Teachers could not make saints out of children  who were not properly drilled at home."  We would go further and say, angels  could not be made in the schoolroom, if  angelic instruction was neglected , at  home. If children are to grow up respectable men and women, respectable  training must be begun at home, and  that as 60011 as children commence to  notice, which is at a very tender age.  The teacher's work can only be supplementary; it cannot be the foundation.  The latter must be:laid at home.  The new government is going to make  a searching investigation'of the political  acts of many officials during the late  campaign. This is correct and proper.  A government official is fully justified in  holding his o������n opinions and voting,  but he has no right to spend time , paid  for by the people in working up the interests of any candidate in a campaign.  The Silvertonian says, "we have been  in gaol but once, and that time for tell-  inir the truth. We have handled the  truth very gingerly ever since." Yes;  very gingerly.  1  .

The edict contains the following passage :  "The anger of our people knew no  bounds. They could not be restrained.  The task of guarding tho legations,  which before was difficult, was made  impossible."  Elsewhere, referring to the desire to  protect the legations still unharmed it  says: "If it is impossible for us to continue this protection let it be represonted  to the powers that we must be held  blameless, for the anger of our people  grows with the rising of each sun that  sees more and more foreigners and soldiers coining to our land to lay waste our  country and people."   ,  The correspondent says the edict is  intended to pave the way for a linal lifting of the veil over,tho recent historv of  Pekin. ��������� , "  21  Will draw the attention to  to what is going on in tlie  mercantile world; there-  fore keeping the names of  leading, merchants, with  their up-to-date announce-.  lnenls,  before the public.
