C, SATURDAY, JULY 30, 1898.  )  \  m  is  PRICE FIVE CENTS.  I  The Slocan Boy Sold to a  English Syndicate.  Strong  Mr. John L. Retallack, of Kaslo, representing shareholders, and Mr. W.  E. Mann, representing a syndicate,  have concluded negotiations for, the  - sale of the Slocan Boy mine. The syndicate which is made up of English  capitalists, pays ������100,000 for the prop-  , - ���������,   erty-  In several respects the purchase of  the Slocan Boy is one of the most .important deals ever made in the Slocan.  The Slocan Boy joins the Washington  property four miles from this city,  which is owned principally by Messrs.  Retallack, Mann, Ralph Clark, A. E.  Jefferson and H. Montgomery,of Kaslo.  It is believed the purchase means that  both mines will practically be run under one' management, wnich ' in view  of the peculiar topographical position  of the mines will be of advantage to  both properties.   The purchase of the  - Slocan Boy will also increase the value  of the Wathington Stock. For some  time the report has been current in the  north that the syndicate represented  by Mr. Retallack wanted both of these  mines. It is now believed this desire  has been principally achieved.  The Slocan Boy is one' of the best  . , known properties in the Slocan. It  was among the first properties discovered in the district. The claim was  discovered by Billy Lynch and , was  sold by him and Mr. William Alperson  to the present owners in 1891. These  , owners are all Spokane people and it is  owned about share and share alike.  The owners who.just sold arc said to be  Messrs. Robert Easson, GeorgcP.Blair,  M. Green, A. XV. Sicgal and W. C.  Word.  During the first two vears of tlie  rnine,s life but little work was done on  it, althought it was one of the earliest  mines Crown granted. The property  has always been operated by the  owners under a leasing arrangement to  Mr. T. C. Gibson, of Kaslo, whose last-  lease, which was for two years, expired  only a few days ago. ^  1 The first improvement work on  the  t   mine was clone in 1S95 when a 250-foot  shaft was sunk.   From  the   start   the  mine has been valuable;and.;since jit  - wa'aleased it has paid back to its owners the purchase price several times  over, besides meeting the expenses of  development work. From a small ore  chute connected with the middle tunnel $175,000 was taken during a few  weeks in the summer 'of 1895.  There are two veins on the property.  The main   or   Washington   vein   furnishes clean shipping  ore   averaging  141 ounces'in silver to the ton and carrying C9 per   cent   lead.     This   vein  runs through the entire   side   of  the  mountain.   The other vein is a   small  vein running across the north   end   of  the property, but it is one of the  richest in the Slocan country, is very similar to the   ore   in   tho   Goodenough  property, and   runs   several   hundred  ounces in silver and SO per   cent, lead  to the ton.   The main   ledge   is   from  three.to ten feet in width.  The only machinery used in the  Slocan Boy is a one-horse whim. All  the ore ever stoped in the Slocan Boy  was taken from above the 100-foot  level, The deeper workings have been  entirely for development purposes.  It is argued that an ownership of  the Slocan Boy and Washington would  be advantageous. No. 3 tunnel on the  Washington would tap the Slocan Boy  ledge at the 000-foot level and that  with little expense. Both properties  could be worked much more cheaply  than either of the properties could be  .handled separately.  the burning of the Payne ore houae.the |    ���������  stoppage of the Noble Five, the   acci- '  dent to the Star,and the Reco doing no  packing this year, the   year's   output \  may not be larger (ban   that   of  last  season ; but it will be given by alnrger   They  number of mines.    As the ore   in   the  first   worked   pro])erties   appears    as  plentiful as ever, and   in   most   cases  tnore.sb,   it is evident the 'commencement made this season bj-our additional propertieSjWill lead to much'heavier  shipments later on as they also secure  improved facilities for delivery.   Altogether the indications for   a   steady,  permanent business are most hopeful.  Shonld Encourage   the  velopment of Individual  Properties.  De-  L  It is universally conceded that the  less t'nkering done with the mining  laws of any country the better for tliat  country, and the rule is equally good  in this province.   Pt-0|>le try  to grasp  the purport of the laws  at  the outset. Lthcr irJStitutions the Federal  and when  they find themselves disap-  as it has for any other place in providing us with a large amount of mineral  wealth, and if tlie people will not  second the efforts of nature,providence  cannot be blamed for the consequences. .  There is no doubt bi-t that much  could be done for lead smelting in this  country by bonusing the industry. We  need not look for government aid in  the shape of duties ; but the bonusing  would accomplish the same desiredro-  snlts. We want refineries and mints.  These can all he got if the people only  property represent their claims.  Tliis city needs a customs house and  I  A Writer for the ''Financial Hews"  Describes Sandon.  To be Opened in a Few Days Under  Miss Skinner's Care.  Our city school will open in a few  days under Miss Skinner, and it would  be well if all who have children of  school age would send them at once  and regularly that the best results may  follow.  We are aware that here  as   well   as  everywhere elsp, some who have   children; they will not send for the reason  they or the children for some indefinite  reason, do not'like the tt acher.     This  in all wrongjand children in later years  will acknowledge it with  deep   regret.  Miss Skinner has a good ecrtificate.sho  has good tcstmonials from   where she  formerly taught arid can gct'more from  many parents here. She is industrious  and painstaking, and has do..e as  well  as any one could   have done  for   the  children who submitted to her  methods.  The trouble, wherever' trouble in  such cases arises, in nine cases out of  ten, can be found in the parents themselves. Parents must know the methods of teaching are changing yearly,  as the best educationists in the' country suggest. If, then, parents see variations from their school days, they  must know they are the suggestions of  the Boards of Education and must be  followed by the teachers.  In many other cases differences arisi  through the parents listening too attentively to the stories of their children.  In most cases these stories are made  up from false premises, the children  either will not, or cannot, understand.  If instead of listening to thenrtlie parents would go direct to the teacher, them if'permitted to do so  they .would get the facts which   would      The    present   laws  is   it re  ie country  pointed  through  changes,   confusion  doubly confounded follows  always resulting in losses  and set backs   to the  country.'     When,   however,    features  glaringly   bad   exist,   thes    must   be  changed;  and, of   course,  tlie sooner  the better.   This latter is true of British Columbia at (lie present moment.  Tlie $5 tax   on  practical   mine operatives must be removed, and limited to  owners   and prospectors   only.     The  privilege of paying ������]00 into the treasury   in   lieu   of assessment work   on  prospects  is doubly bad, and must be  removed at once.    For instance,  the  payment does not become  a circulating medium  amongst the commercial  or business community, as it would if  expended   on  the property   either by  the owner or by an employee, which.is:  one drawback.   The second  is   it  tards  the opening up of th  by postponing   a knowledge of what  there is in the property.   For instance  the assessment work of one year may  stop a fevr days' work short of revealing  evidence of a  favorable property.  If   instead  of doing   assessment   the  next one or two^ycars  the owner  pays  5100   a   year into   the   treasury,   the  country is kept in ignorance  for those  years, unnecessiirily, of the existence  of a promising property.   The idea is  to get as speedily as possible a full  knowledge of where there is nnd where  there is not actunl mineral wealth, and  this can only be done  bv as much expenditure ancl labor as possible.  The extension of time given a session or two ago in which to record improvements' or time to do them, is a  mistake, it encourages a speculative  spirit in the minds of men who have  neither the means nor the will to work  properties as they should be worked,  and often prevents their ��������� falling into  the   haniis  of men  win*  would  government would doubtless give us, if   our  claims and our needs were only properly pressed   by   properly   crcdentialed  delegates.   In the absence of a   Bostrd  of Trade, the city council should move  in this matter; and whether Kaslo invites them or not, our council   shuttle!  have a delegation present at that  conference, to see   that   our   requirments  and just dues are properly represented.  Accompanying the council's delegation  should be representatives from all  the  leading mines in this vicinity, to   see  that our importance as a  mining centre is properly laid before the   conference.   Tt would be   wfll   if our   delegation were selected at once,   so   that  they   might   confer   with   the    mine  owners ancl have the mining representatives   selncted   to   co-operate   with  theni when the ministers arrive.  AN IMPORTANT CASE.  Full Court Affiims   the   Decision   That  Wooded Posts Must be Used.  Work  The Dull Season.  . This is one of the dullest seasons iri  the Sandon cam^-���������in short it is the  trough.between the two seasons.    The  .'" past winter's business is all over, and  sloping has not commenced   for  next  : winter's.ra winding.   Most of the ship-  : ping mines have plenty of capital behind them, and are not--. compelled to  undertake expensive summer -packing  to pay development work. They are  then simply developing for  stoping a  : couple of months later for early raw-  hiding.   As a result perhaps there are  .not more than 600 miners at work in  the surroundings of Sandon. Mines  like the Payne and the Star that have  their trams,and like the Ruth that has  its wagon road, can,of course,mine and  deliver to the cars nearly as cheaply at  one season as at another; but those  that are without these advanced facilities (and they embrace the larger portion of the younger properties) are  governed by seasons.  Last year 24 properties shipped from  Sandon, and it is safe to say , before  this year is out the number will be in-  often open their eyes.    The   best   experience shows, it is always  of advantage to the pupils, and in   fact   to   all  who are concerned.if the parents would  unvaryingly support the  teacher,   till  they learn from disinterested   and   reliable sources,  the teacher   is wrong.  We cannot  too   strongly   impress   oi.  on parents the fact that speaking  disrespectfully of teaehers in the hearing  of children utterly destroys  the influence of the teacher, with   those   children.    In short children might as well  be kept from school, when the   parent  refuses to support the teacher  The trustees   of  Sandon   have   the  promise of the government of the erection of another   school   building   and  the employment of another teacher, as  soon as the average attendance reaches  40.   In sending regularly and  ing the efforts of the   teacher   Sandon  parents have now a   line   opportunity  of serving their children ancl receiving  their thanks for the  service   in   later  years.   There are   many   children   in  town cli'asing the streets  day   in   and  day out that ought to be al school, and  especially while it costs  nothing.     If  parents do  not   intend   to   put   their  children ���������through for  professions,   all  the same, a good education is service  able.   A year's  attendance   at  school  always adds many years to the youth's  usefulness in alter years.   We' would,  therefore, urge all parents to make an  effort to dispense with the   services'of  their, children at home, and send .them  regularly to school, when the trustees  will see.the best possible is   done   for  them in the way of school accommoda-  tien and tuition,  require a few  minor alterations of these descriptions,  and when they arc once made they  ought to be permitted to remain so  until tini" and experience suggest the  necessity imperatively for further alterations, and then these should be  made as carefully as possible.  A case of more than   usual   interest  is that of CaJlihnn vs. George, just   decided by the   full   court   at   Victoria.  The plaintifl located   certain   mineral  claims, but in so doing   erected   stone  monuments in place of  wooden   posts  us required by the statute.     The   defendant relocated the claims, erecting  wooden posts as required.   The action  was then taken by the plaintiffs to secure the claims, but Mr.   Justice   Mc-  Coll decided   against   them,   holding  that stone monuments would, not;   answer in place of wooden posts, even   if  as contended by. the   plaintiffs,   there  was an abgencc of wood in the vicinity.  The plaintiffs ajipealccfagainst the decision and the full court dismissed the  appeal with costs.     They   thereupon  applied for leave to appeal to the privy  council, which application was granted  upon their depositing Sl,500 to secure  costs.   It is the intention of the plaintiffs to bring the case before the privy  immediately.  "Square" Mineral Claims.  At the convention  of  the International Mining Congress recently  held  at   Salt Lake City   a committee, appointed to report its to the advisability  of amending the United States mining  laws, submitted a majority and minority   report.      W. li. Heyburn,   well  known as  a mining lawyer in  Idaho  support-1 ancl Kootenay,  favored  the minority  'report, says the Rossland Miner.   He  opposed the proposition of the majority to abolith the apex law and to substitute in its place the '���������square" claim,  giving  the locator everything witnin  and beneath . his lines.    He said  he  lived   near   Britis'i Columbia,  where,  since 1891, the square claim   has been  the law.    The people of  British Columbia, he  claimed,   after an  experience of laws   based on  the American  laws, as well as  of the   square claim,  now desire  to change back  once more  to the American system.   He argued  that   a  difficulty   of  location   would  arise after the adoption of the square  claim law.  Ballot Box Stuffing.  A Word of Explanation.  .  No one must  infer   from what  we  write on-1'the political  situation   thut'l  we are 'particularly  opposed   to   Joe  Martin's leadership in the province of  a non-politicul government.    What we  aro opposed to is: Firstly, the introduction of Federal politics, and secondly,  the   promotion   of   Martin   over   the,  htitds   of"those  who   have done   tlie  work far' the opposition.   So far  Martin has done nothing for any party in  the province, and it is only  in years  hence when he has done his share of  the work that he can honestly put forward a fair claim to the leadership.  Sandon Jeeds a Board of Trade.  CHILDREN'S KIDNEYS  Are often so weak tha,t they cannot  retain   their   water.    Don't scold   or  punish   the   little  ones.     Give  them  Doan's Kidney Pills and soon  every-  --   ��������� thing will be all right  and  the beds I  creased by half  a dozen     Owing   to   sweet and dry.  We have time and again   called  the  attention of the. business men  of Sandon to the many services a   Board   of  Trade might accomplish for this city;  but no one has felt   disposed   to   take  the initiative."' An opportunity to accomplish something is now on the surface, if we   only  had   tlie ' machinery  with which to do it. It appears a number of Ottawa Cabinet   Ministers   are  shortly to visit the Kootenay, and  the  Kootenaian says thev  are  to   hold   a  conference at Kaslo under tlie auspices  of the Board  of   Trade   of   that   city.  We are further adyised Rossland,  Nelson anil,Revelstoke Boards   of   Trade  arc to.be asked-to   send   delegates   to  that conference; but   no   mention   is  made of Sandon no   more   than   if  it  never had an existence.   We cannot of  course, expect Kaslo to look   after   its  own interests and these of  Sandon   as  well, if the business people   here   will  make no move in their own behalf.   ,  Nature has done as much for Sandon  Even.Sandon had a little ballot box  stuffing in the last   election.     When  Mr. Mighton   the   Deputy   Returning  Officer here, counted the ballots at the  close of the polling, he gave   a certificate to Mr. Green's scrutineer showing  there  were   81   ballots   cast   for   Mr.  Green and 80 for .Mr.   Retallack,   with  one spoilt.   He still asserts   this   was  the   standing   of  the   poll   when   he  handed over the ballot box.   When  it  was opened by Mr. Andrews,   the   Returning Officer, at  Kaslo,   there   were  but SO good ballots for Mr.  Green  and  apparently,SO for Mr. Retallack.      As,  however, one of the latter  <was   badly  marked Mr. Andrew's was  induced  to  reject it,   under   the   appearance   the  iinarking was to   identify   the   voter.  Mr. Andrews offered no  serious objection to rejecting   that   ballot,   as   the  totals in the division were   not   close.  This left Mr. Green iiere   SO   and   Mr.  Retallack 79, or the former one ahead.  It is generally uiulc stood  there   were  at least ?3,000 bet by   Mr.   Retallack's  friends that-he-would have a   niajortiy  here, and no doubt the 40 or 50 outside  votes polled here, wore to save the bets.  Now as some of these Retallack beting  men refused to allow their   money   to  go to the. Green men until Mr. Andrew?  made his final returns,   it   is   evident  there   were   understandings   between  one of those who had charge of,   or access to the ballot box.after ballots were  counted here and these betters who refused to accept Mr.  Mighton's  count.'  The only explanation is that   some  of  the ballot box custodians were   to   tix  the ballots so   the   Retallack   betters  would not lose   their   wads,   and   the  latter felt it was going to be done, lhe  result,however, shows as the poet sang  "The best Jaid plans of mice   and men  gang aft aglee."   In the face of person-  atinff.ballot boxstufling,publicbrihirig-  whiskey andittll, Mr. Green and friends  have a right-to ieel proud-   of ; the   results.  The special commissioner of the"Fin-  ancial News," who has been surveying  the Mining camps of British Columbia  has this to say of Sandon and its mines:  "This city which has just been incorporated, is situated in a gulch certainly not more than 200 yards wide,   part  of which is occupied by   the   railway  tracks, and surrounded by  almost   in-  accessable mountains, which are litter-  ally filled with magnificent ore. It was  located but six years ago, and tlie first  building was erected   in   1S95,   sirce  tliat time tho town has grown by leaps  and bounds, until to-day notwithstanding its cramped position,   it contains  some 2,000 inhabitants, and one of the  most comfortable hotels in   the   country.   Sandon is particularly fortunate  in being served by two   lines   of  railway���������one the Canadian Pacific and tho  other the Kaslo and Slocan,connecting  via Kootenay lake   with   the   Pacific  trunk lines of the south.    The Crow's  Nest line ofthe Pacific, expectetl to be  finished in 1S98, will have a branch to  Slocan lake, thus bringing, Sandon  in  close connection with the   main   line,  and so establishing a link between the  camps and the trans-continental   lines  and smelters of the United States.  The  entire population is supported  by  the  mining industry ; for here arc situated  what will be   the   greatest   silvjr-lead |  mines which the world has   over   produced.   Already several of these mines  have paiddividends which would make  the mouths of Africa or,West   Australia water.   For  instance,   the   Payne  has, even after expending ������600,000 on  improvements   to   its   tramway    and  wagon road, paid the enormous sum of  5900,000   in    dividends    within    ten  months.   A half interest in this property was   purchased   before   this  for  ?S7,000.   The Reco, which capitalized  at ������1,000,000, has  paid   in   dividends  since   February,   1897,   8250,000,   and  still larger divitlcnds are promised   for  several years from the   bodies   of  ore  now in sight.  "In an   interesting   interview   with  Mr. J. M Harris, the principal owner  of the mii-ip, who was also the original  locator of the town, he   informed  me  that owning to t lie failure of the bank  in which  his small   capital   was   deposited, his partner,   Mr.   Kelly,   and  himself started the Reco   mine   on   a  'working capital ol*25 cents, and having  struck ore immediately they   wore enabled to ship small quantities  and   so  pay tlieir way whilst living from hand  to mouth.   I coultl with ease   amplify  the.������;e instances by mentioning  many  others of note, sucli as the Slocan Star  with supplies of all kinds for one year,  with cook and porter, and tlie tluee  officialb of the B. N. A. and the Bank's  solicitor, Mr. Tabor, of the firm of Bowser, Godfrey & Christie, of Vancouver,  left by the S, S. Pakshau on April 1st  for Skagway. The party reached Dawson. City on the 17th of May, and  opened the first bank in the Yukon  district on May 19th. Mr. Doig, the  leader ������f the expedition, now the  bank's manager at Dawson, gives   an  With Scissors and Pen.  ntcresting account of the hardships of  the passes and of the difficulties of  crossing tlie half-frozen lakes before  tho upper reaches of the Yukon were  reached.  The population  of   Dawson,   which  duriDg the winter was only  1,500 people, had raised by June 13, to  an ..estimated 6,000 of whom  four-fifths   were  living under canvas, while it was estimated that from 20,000 to 25,000 people  wore coming in by the   trails   and"  as  many more via St. Michael's.   The arrival of steamer*1 from  St.   Michael's,  which were expected  by   the   end   of  June, will have relieved   the shortage  of provisions which was   severely felt  at the beginning of   the   month.     At  that time maose meat  was   91.50   per  pound, sugar ������1, ham ������3, tinned meats  ���������?5 per tin, eggs 512 per dozen,   whisky  $10 a bottle, while the  regular   wages  for laborers were $1.50 per hour.   Gold  dust was passing as currency at ������17 an  ounce.     The  mining   inspector estimated the output for   this   season   at  57,000,000���������a much lower amount than  has been anticipated, but   which   was  accounted for by the   lact that fear of  famine had driven many miners  back  to Circle City, where food w&s   plentiful, so that there was great   shortness  of labor, and many claims were consequently left   untouched.       Rents   at  Dawson are at present from   5500  to  ������������������"���������2,000 a   mo .th   for  a  log  building.  Front lots are'held at  ?400   per   foot.  The Bank of British   north   America  were temporarily doing business in a  large tent, with wood   floor,   awaiting  the construction   of  a   two-story   log  building for their use.   Logs   were  S9  each and nails ?20 a pound.  ship  again   next  Inconsistancy,  Some Jotunalists have a peculiar wav  of paying higk compliments to men in.  their profession. Tho Movie City Leader  in dealing with the results of the , South  East Kootenay election says ''When'the  electors" considered the ability of the two  candidates, the importance of having a  thorough, capable man as a representative and Baillie's utter deficiency in  statesman like tact, the contest was too  heavy a burden for him.    Again it says :  The Leader entertains the highest regard ancl respect for Mr.Baillie as a citizen. It considers him one of the most  able and thorough journalists in the entire province ; but it has maintaincd,and  will continue to maintain, that he was  hot the proper man  The Alamo   will  week, bo it is said.  Tbe Star shipped 60 tons of ore over  the C. P. R. the past, week.  The  Whitewater concentrator has a  cap-icity of 100 tons a day.  The   Whitewater  Deep   has   commenced an 1,800 feet tunnel.  The   Antoinc mine   of   McGuigan,'  shipped two cars of ore in July.  Work is soon to be commenced oa  the Ajax Fraction, north of Cody.    -  It is reported that the Lemon creek  section is showing up well these times  under a little development.  The ore shipments from Three Forks  for week ending July 21st were : Queen  Bess, 20 tons to Everett; Idaho, 152  tons to Aurora. There were no shipments the week previous.  The Last Chance is now shipping  from tunnels 3 and 4, and many think  it will yet rival the famous Payne as  an ore producer. The last strike is 24  inches of the very best of ore 'in tunnel 4.  The Wonderful company are going  to try another shaft to find the ledge '  they believe to be on the property,  though the float oro may be from the  extension of the Payne across, the  gulch, or some one ye' unknown a dis- -  tance away. ^  The Kootenaian has it that a Kaslo  company have discovered a free milling gold mine, near Whitewater, that '  runs from $34 to S83 to the ton. It has  an ������18 inch lead. T. J. Lindrum, ' of u  Ainsworth, ever on the alert for a good  thing, is said to have boHght a half  interest in it.  ..uu unu jjilujci muii to represent this  the Ruth, the Queen Bess Proprietary, district at such tui important stage of its  the Noble Five, the Last  Chance,  and   develepment.  many others too numerous to mention,      It becomes rathor tough when one of  aJl of which are in the dividend-paying   tho "most able" journalists in the   prov-  list or about to enter. Of the per-  manancy of the ore in these mines it is  impossible to have any doubt; for the  Reco hastapped the ore chute .at 600  feet depth, and tlie Payne has driven  a tunnel and cut tlie reef at 1,000 feet  depth, these proofs also extending to  all the surrounding properties.  Some 284,000 of the 500,000 shares of  the LeRoi stock have passed into the  hands of the B. A. O. at $6 a share, or  on the basis of $3,000,000 for the mine.  This is a good thing for the province,  as it is felt iu many quarters so reckless has been the purchasing of their  agent heretofore, that disappointment  might result, if something certain was  not purchased.

Tipping returned on Wednesday  morning from the second north fork of  Lemon creek, where he had been doing  the assessment on the Klondyke No. 2,  a   property   belonging to   Vancouver  parties.   Mr. Tipping reports that-he  made a big strike on  this claim, having   encountered c a   four-foot,  J edge  which contains a 12-inch paystreak of,  high grade ore.   He has apprised the  owners of his discovery, and he thinks  it very likely   that they  will proceed  without delay to thoroughly develop  the property.  A Vancouver Smelter.  It is announced that a combination  has been made bi'tween the Vancouver  Smelter company, of London, England,  capital ������150,000   and what  is  locally  known as the Treat Smelter company.  This   latter   was   recently   refused   a  bonus on ore treated, the city of Vancouver   not seeing   its  way, clear. te  guarantee the same, says the British  Columbia "Mining Critic."   The com  binatioii looks to the acquiring by the  Vancouver Smelter company   of  the  plant now in this city   and owned  by  Mr. Treat and his associates.  This has  a capacity of 100 tons  per day.   E.J.  Howell, who represents the Vancouver  Smelter Co., is said to be acting on behalf of the Rothschild syndicate.   He  left for England  this week  to perfect  the  arrangement.

THE OPPOSITION CAUCUS.-  The Opposition caucus at Vancouver yesterday does not seem to have  been an unqualified success. The  public is still in the dark as to who is  the leader of the party. Mr. Semlin  is supposed to have held that proud  position since Mr. Beavin was turned  down, bui it is reasonable to suppose  that Mr. Semlin's reign is rapidly  drawing to a close. All signs; point  to the supplanting of Semlin, Conservative, by "Martin, Liberal. It is an  open secret that Mr. Martin is determined to lead the party, if possible,  and in this he has the hearty support  of every Liberal in the Opposition.  But how unpleasant this must be for  Messrs.  Semlin and   Cotton !    They,  no doubt, realize now   that it  is too  late to arrange otherwise,   that   with  "Joe" Martin in the Legislature   they  are no longer important factors in .the  councils   of the   party.    Mr,  Martin  ��������� will be boss of the show, as it is next  to impossible   for   such a   prominent  Grit as he   to work  in harmony   with  ,  tvvo such  dyed-in-the-wool Tories   as  Messrs. Semlin and Cotton.    It is tolerably certain that a split between the  two factions  will occur   before   long."  'When   Mr. Cotton   discovered   that  Mr. Martin was a stronger man politically than himself he ceased   to antagonize him. and his once outspoken  dislike and dread for the   gentleman  from Winnipeg has turned to fawning  flattery.     But it is  not likely that this  change of front  on   the  part  of  the  editor  of   the   News-Advertiser  will  save his   political bacon.    His recent  honied praise of Martin and his consequent disloyalty to   Mr. Semlin will  avail   him   nothing   when   the   time  comes for him to get his conge.    And  it is safe to say that when Mr. Cotton  is forced out of the Opposition all the  other  Conservatives   in the party will  have   to go wilh him.    It is, however,  not likely that this will occur until Mr.  Martin has succeeded in so surrounding himself   with   Liberal   suppotters  that  he can show  a majority in   the  Legislature.    The   lack of a   Liberal  majority is   the   only re-tson   for   Mr.  Martin's     present   attitude   towards  Messrs. Semlin and Cotton, and none  know  it better   than  they do.    They  are tolerated   by Mr. Martin   because,  he wants to use them  for a while, but  he will not delay   in reading them out  of the party when it is safe   to do so.  Meanwhile it  is  probable   that  Mr.  Martin's ends  will be   served best by  the  nominal retention of Mr. Senllin  as leader of the Opposition.  If the foregoing from the Rossland  Miner, Grit, voices the wish of the  Liberal section of the British Columbia Opposition, then all we have to  say is it is a sorryday for the lot. No  one who has an ounce of discretion  will truthfully say that the introduction  of Federal politics into the B. C. legislature can do any good, while it is  certain to work a great deal of mischief. Mr. Martin cannot be premier  immediately, and the sooner his  friends know it and submit to the inevitable, the better it.will be for all  interested. Messrs. Cotton and Semlin have been leading the opposition  for years past, and it is largely through  their exhibitions of the objectionable  features of the Turner government's  policy that the opposition is now coming into power. Solar Martin has  done little or no service for the opposition ; and to'give him precedence  now over the heads of those who have  fought the battles in the past would be  an outrage the spirit of fair play of  the people as a whole will not tolerate,  the wishes of fire brands like the  Miner to the contrary notwithstanding. Let Martin and associates once  usurp supremacy, as the Miner suggests they-will, and that moment the  Conservative members of the party  would be fully justified in coalescing  with the Turner party, and where then  would Martin and associates find  themselves stranded ? [  '  ���������  But the last clauses of the Miner's  article are the most significant of the  whole���������the lack of a Liberal majority  is the only reason for Martin's present  attitude. Dear, oh dear, Semlin and  Cotton are to become cats' paws and  pull chestnuts out of the fire. Well,  we shall see. The present House has  a Conservative majority, and in it he  (Martin) can do nothing; but one  single kick will show thc'electors what  is up, so that in subsequent elections,  if he forces the issue, he will find himself with even a smaller Liberal following than he has at present.  What the people are now looking  for is an efficient economical and progressive government���������one that - will  sava in governmental paraphernalia  and expend more on roads, bridges,  etc. to open up the country. This is  what they want and not the Tomfoolery of Federal politics, forcing many  an able man to dig his own political  grave.      If   Martin  is wise  he  will  call ofi blabbers of the Miner stamp  that have long noses for political scent  and little brain for execution. It is  only necessary to show the power of  the Miner, to point out the fact that it  did everything it could to defeat  James Martin in his constituency, because of his alleged inability for the  position, and he was elected by 180 of  a majoritv. While men, according to  to that paper's representation of complete unfitness for positions, can be  elected to them with such sweeping  majorities, in the face of its strongest  protests, the countiy is safe.  DESPOTISM.  To the Editor Slocan Sun :  Sir,��������� We the   undersigned   would  like   through    the   columns   of   your  paper   to show up some of the injustices done us by the men   in charge of  the Lardo-Duncan   public works,   for  no reason save   that we voted for Mr.  R. F. Green.  , The day before  elections,   James Goodenough,   who is a  very   warm   friend   of   Mr. Phil   McDonald, came to us and said if we did  not vote   for   John L. Retallack  we  would be   fired. N  We   told  him  we  would exercise our  own judgement in  that respect and that we were not running after Retallack  or any one   else  for the privilege of earning a living on  work   that   rightly   belonged   to   us.  Two days after election,   lor this free  expression of our sentiments, we were  informed   that  our services were   no  longer required.    We asked Mr. Melrose, the foreman of our gang, if wc  were discharged on account of incompetency, and he informed us   that our  work   was quite satisfactory,   but  he  had to obey orders from headquarters.  The next morning we were compelled  to pack  our   blankets   iS miles,   notwithstanding that a boat, in charge of  Mr. Phil. McDonald,   followed us all  the way,   which   could have   carried  them without  any   trouble.     'But he  absolutely refused to take them, saying  that we were d������������������ lucky to get  transportation   to Kaslo.     We   were jiven  the papers   which contained  the false  statement,   purporting to  have   come  from   Mr. Carney, that   the men  employed   on   government   work   were  being   herded   like   a   lot  of   sheep.  But the   Slocan Sun   which contained  the contradiction of the lie, was   not  given us  until the day after  the election,   Mr.  McDonald having carried  them around in his pocket.    The day  before election   a   large consignment  of whiskey and cigars arrived,   which  we were informed came from John L.  Retallack.  John Marsh ' ,  Fred W. A. Wood  James Irving  L. Cody  I. Goodwin  The foregoing correspondence goes  a long distance   towards unqualifiedly  etablishing trie fact  that the late government expenditures  in  this constituency were made  at the instigation of  interested parties  to buy up  the constituency  for   Mr. Retallack with the  people's own money.    If the  matter  is not   cleared   up before then,   as   a  matter of justice   to all interested, at  the next session of parliament arrangements must be made   for afull  investigation  that the responsibility may be  placed on the proper shoulders.   This  gagging of the electors must be effectually stopped,, in some   way or other,  or   things   will  go   on from   bad   to  worse;      Mr. Carney and   others,   in  the late campaign,   who were in a position   to know at least some of' the  facts, declared   from public platforms  that bribery   by public   money was  rampant  in some parts of the constituency,' arid theywere as often called  liars   by',-" some   of   Mr.   Retallack's  friends.' .The truth   is now, however,  partially   out,    and it remains  for a  committee of, investigation   to  get  at  the   rest of the story.    If Mr.  Retallack  is entirely clear of complicity in  this   scandalous matter   every:','effort',  ought to be made   to prove it.    If on  the other hand the gold commissioner  so far prostituted his office   as to   be  responsible for the business, he ought  to be bounced   without ceremony ; or  if again   it turns out  that  only   Mr.  Retallack's   committee on   their  sole  responsibility are culpable, the people  ought to know it.    In justice to all, wc  repeat, a  vigorous effort ought  to be  made to secure  in elections the uninfluenced voice of the people.  ing the past 12 months, and the satisfaction investors are getting out of  their properties, are fast dispelling  this prejudice. Capitalists are corn-  commencing to learn that it is immaterial what the character of the properties in which their money is sunk so  long as the dividends are sufficiently  large and certain.  We repeat it the frequent strikes of  late are proving that our mines are of  no temporary character, but that they  are permanent, increasing iu the value  of outputs as capital and labor are  expended upon them.  But this is not all. The cost of  smelting is going down, and will sink  still farther as soon as coke and coal  are brought in over the Crow's Nest  road, and the C. P. R. gets its smelter  system well under way. Besides  wagon roads and trams are fast supplanting ' expensive mule packing,  bringing the mines and the railway's  very close together. In short owing  to these reductions some of the mines  with certain qualities of ores, such as  the Idaho, arc seriously contemplating  dropping concentrating and shipping  in bulk. Others again, such as the  Ajax, are likely to utilize the trams of  their neighbors, all reducing the cost  of transport and encouraging stoping  on a more extensive scale.  Well, but, say some, these things  can hardly be real, as we do not'  see corresponding improvements in  business. Most close observers,  will see that much of the appaient  business solidity of new camps arises  from transient trade���������from men on  the move in search of foi tunes in a  night. Sandon lias grown past this,  and most of the country for that matter, so the business people are likely  to secure in the future, will be more  of the substantial permanent line, ancl  the number, of business houses will  have to be determined by what can  live and be, supported in ihis way.  The mushroom days of Sandon :-re  past, and the business of the future  while slower, will be more of a permanent nature.  We confidently believe that a year  henee double the number of mines  now in operation in our vicinity will  be shipping, and the number of business houses that will be content with  a regular, steady trade with,them, will  be here doing a steady and remunerative trade.  them in a portfolio. Besides this Mr.  Mclnnes' father is Lieut-governof,and  we know of no reason why the country  should give important posts to all the  members of any given family.  TO CURE COLD IN ONE DAY.

FOIBLES  OF  GREAT  MEN.  FEDERAL POLITICS.  DECIDEDLY    ENCOURAGING.  During the last few days numerous  rich strikes have been met with in old,  young and altogether new mining  properties iu; this vicinity, which is  proof that the fondest dreams, even of  interested parties, concerning this  camp are certain to be��������� eventually realized. Last year altogether 24 mines  shipped from Sandon, and we shall  be disappointed if that number is not  increased by half a dozen more before this year is over.  It is true that the prejudice in  favor of gold properties has had a  depressing effect- on this camp ; but  even this will in time be overcome���������  in short the amount of ��������� English capital invested in our surroundings dur-  We very much regret, in short we  cannot help deploring, the efforts  some of the provincial papers, notably the Rossland Miner, are putting  forth to introduce Federal politics  into our Provincial legislature. As  politics go in Canada, the more a  representative becomes a politician  the less he becomes a man, _and we  have no manhood to lose in our provincial parliament. We have many  reforms to make, and they should be  made liberally, but it does not follow  that wc want either Reformers, Liberals or Conservatives. In, a word,  what is wanted in the Legislature is  men who can devise the least expensive way of handling our public business so as to give the most money  possible for public works, and the employment of,, labor, to.open up our  vast, undeveloped resources. We  want tins done ; but it does not follow-  that we want either Grits or Tories to  do it. ."'    ���������'���������"'. .'-     .  The Rossland Miner, however,  wants to see the traitor game played  in all its political splendor. It knows  full well the question of Federal politics was no issue in the late campaign  ���������that Conservatives voted for Liberals and Liberals for Conservatives.  So far, as the opposition was concerned a desire to see better government was the only question involved.  To spring politics now and take the  advantage of unsuspecting,electors is  altogether beneath manhood. For  our part we see nothing gained by  Federal politics in any of the provincial Legislatures, and to introduce  them now in British Columbia would  be very ill-advised. If disturbers will  have them, the only fair way of introducing them is just before a general  election, so that no mean advantage  will be taken of any One. Let all  under such circumstances then, vote  for oragainst them with their eyes  open.    '"  ������������������  Napoleon's Fondmiai* For White Trousers.  A Famous Juriit's Weakness.

A curious" story of credulity and su  perstition has been brought to light in  a recent trial for fraud before a Bavarian court. About a year ago a farm  manager named Kotterich, living in  the little town of Kaufbeure , lost by  death a daughter who was a cripple  Soon after one of his neighbors, a Fran  Wohlfarther. the wife ot* a mechanic,  began to communicate to the family  letters from heaven dictated to her or  left at her bedside by the Virgin Mary,  and asking for money or objects of  value. The Kotterich family has received forty-eight letters and had complied with, the requests contained in  them before the police got wind of the  swindle ancl interfered.  An early'letter contained the news  that the little girl was married iu heaven, thut she liked it there, and that  she wished the Virgin would ask for a  dowry for her. The Kntterichs gladly  gave Frair Wohlfarther the money and  '. asked her to send it for theni. Then  they were informed that their daughtei  had three children,who must be christened and clad according to their rank.  After that the children received a gift  of a chapel, but were in need of an  altarl * Then strange things happened  in heaven ; the twelve apostles needed  new clolhes, a famine broke out and  all the angels "would die of hunger unless the Kotterichs sent a pig,the angel  Gabriel lost his golden sword in driving back the devils, the daughter committed a deadly sin, and it would take  1,600 marks to save her from purgatory.  The Virgin, however, made presents  from time to time. Sho sent a churn,  later a sofa, for which, however, an upholsterer later sent a bill; then she  thought Frau Kotterich needed a new  bonnet, but as this came accompanied  by the milliner's bill, the good woman  thought it unkind. The family had  delivered 8,400 marks ($2,100) in cash,  besides many objects that cost much  money, to Frau Wohlfarther for the  Virgin, when their medium of communication with hcayen was arrested.

DAVIS & LAWRENCE CO.,  LIMITED,   MONTREAL  Beware of imitations  Andrew Oleson over 70 years of age  and the last of the quartette   of  Aus.  tralian miners, is now in Ashcroft and  will go down in a day   or   two to  the  hot springs at Agassiz   for   his   rheumatic trouble.   His last partner, Steve  Ite*we, was buried the 23rd of June at  Quesnclle.   Oleson, Stephen Dowe and  brother, and one other, landed in Cariboo over 35 years ago, and not  having  success in the mines, decided to locate  and clear up a piece of  ground   along'  the   Cariboo   road.     Ti.e  Australian  ranch is tho result.   It is, perhaps, the  finest piece of land in British   Columbia, and for   many   years   these   men  worked at clearing it ofi" and  breaking  it up.    They   had   but   little  money  when they arrived in Cariboo,   coming  direct from a teu  year's 6tay  in   the  Australian mines.    By a rare chance  they obtained four oxen of Harper   on  credit, interest n't the rata of two   per  cent, a month.   Theso oxen cost them  bofore they were  paid   for,   principal  and interest, over ������1,500.    All of   the'  original party are now dead except Mr.  Oleson, or Andrew, as he is known by  all in this section. Tnis is his first trip  down since he wont to Cariboo 35 j ears  ago, and only once has he been further  from the farm than Quesnelle orBaker-  villc, the exception being once to the  150-Mile House.   He saw for the   first  time in Ashcroft   a,   modern   railway  car, never having seen a railway before  exeept n tramway in Australia   thirty  miles long.   Mr. Olesen expects to   return to the ranch as soon as his health  will permit, but says he shall sell out I ���������  and go foi" a trip to Stredgn to see hie Vrpndetful Bird.....*......*.......

The many advantages enjoyed by Rosebery put  before the public, CLAIMED WITHOUT,  OPPOSITION.  Its Advantages as a Distributing  Center.  Rosebe;r/ is the only town in Kootenay having  both railroad and steamboat connection that can  ship goods daily to ten diflerent towns, whereby the  shipper can see his wares leave his hands and that  they will be received by the consignee within" two  hours.  Its Advantages as a Railroad Center.  Rosebery enjoys the position of king of the  funnell as it were, for the raihoad business of the  whole of the Kootenays. All ore and matter for  shipment from Nelson, Trail Creek and the Slocan  must, and is now; passing out this way to the main  , line of the C. P. R., as well as all goods coming  in from Revelstoke to the Kootenay country.  NOTE. To substantiate this: The C. P. R.  are now putting in track weigh, scales at Rosebery,  the first and only scales that has been put in on any  of the C. P. R. branches in Kootenay���������which  goes to show the importance of this point by the  Canadian Pacific Railway Company's actions. -  Its Advantages as a Steamboat Point.  Rosebery claims, without opposition, of being -  the only junction on the lake, unlike Slocan City,  where you can step ofl the steamer to a waiting '  train and continue your journey. You can take  either a north or south train at this terminus j consequently Rosebery is the best transient town in  the race. Nervertheless we claim Slocan City  second in importance, and would say watch the  head and foot of Slocan Lake, viz.���������  ROSEBERY AND SLOGAN CITY.  Its Advantages as a Manufacturing  Center.  As a manufacturing center Rosebery claims to  have demonstrated the fact that after the careful  observation of the Denver (Colorado) Ore Coy's  manager, as the natural advantages of all points in  Kootenay for the treatment of ores the cheapest,  Rosebery was selected, and they now are erecting  works, with a capacity of 250 tons per day, which  will be in operation within 90 days; and it is their  intention to pay out monthly in the vicinity of  . $100,000. I might also add Rosebery has the  largest water power from Wilson river flowing into'  Slocan Lake.  AS TO CLIMATE.  Rosebery claims the mildest climate on Slocan  Lake, from its admirable southern exposure and  absolute shelter from the north; snow always  leaves the place about the 15th of March".  AS A TOWNSITE.  t As a townsite, Rosebery is without a peer. It.  is possessed of all the flat land available at the  mouth of the Wilson river leading to the valley���������  mining region���������consequently there is no danger of  any contagion. The title is a Crown Grant and  is perfect. All purchasers of lots are safe in this  respect. The only safe speculative townsite in the  Slocan is Rosebery.  Why should I say the only safe speculative town-  site in the Slocan ? Because Rosebery business  lots to-day are only $150 to $200 each and are  bound to increase rapidly this summer. These  figures can, and will, double before long. The  time to buy is now. Don't wait till they are from  $700 to? 1,000, asyoudid in Slocan City last May,  go in on the ground floor and make a few dollars  in speculation; if you want to invest go to Vancouver or Winnipeg ; if you want to speculate and  and clean up money go quick to Rosebery before  lots are out of sight.

Last Thursday week a conference  was held in St. Paul between ' representatives of the four great railways  heading Kootenay ward.
