Its  Origin, Infancy and Development.
A Remarkable Place for Three Year*
When one comes to think that  five
years ago,   where Sandon now.stands
with its  2,000 pconlo  resident and  at
least     1,200   more 'miners    tributary
',' spending thoir earnings in the place,
was a cedar swamp with scarcely a tree
blazed to mark a trail to any place, ho
must readily conclude it is a wonderful place for its days.' There are some
pessimists who will  even now express
a doubt  as to its  large proportions  in
the future; simply, becntiac  it  is  not
larger   now.    forgottinsr   that      even
London,  ttio  great,   with  its   present
population equal to th it of the whole
of .Canada, was  once a   place smaller
, ^tk^ Sandon,   though   surrounded  at
tlie time with n considerable circle  of
opportunities.   But great as has been
its nominal growth  in the past there
are those, who apeak with knowledge
on tho subject,  who say it is   so surrounded, with   the  resource!,   of   the
Kootenay country   that   its   development of the.past must even   be  ox-
' Receded in the future. *-In January 1S93
li there was not a house where Sandon
now stands.   There  was a  trail from
the townsite to' Three Forks,   which
-   had then the old ore house as  its only,
building, thence to Bear Lake,   which
was at the time a place of some promise, "and where   Mr. Atherton���minus
his ..'matrimonial ido.15���kept  a si ore?
It was extended   thence   to  Kaslo,  a
point of some note- with   nn improved
road built by the Knsloitcs themselves.
The   road   was   extended   also   from
Three Forks   10   New Denver,   which
had a store kept by   Bourn Bros.,  two
or throi^-hotcls and   some  other   business places.
Prospecting  to some extent in the
mountains about had been indulged to
���,j   some extent, but SandoiH was'without
a'home or a demarcation of existence.
<Mr. R. Cunning, who it now  the obliging and popular host of the commodious   Hotel Sandon,   was   the first  to
pitch his tent on the lownsil'',  and as
freightage by mule power was the only
conveyance, from Kaslo   at a cost of
from G to S cents a pound, and 110-supply centre  of. any  note   be ins; nearer,
one may well imagine hi.* bills of faro
were not blest with "all the  delicacies
of the season."   The fust building was
his hotel, the log building just north of
������where   his present house  stands/    If
you arc troubled with an attack of (he
blues just   call on   Mr.  Cunning  and
get him to recite his curly experiences
in   the hotel-lino  in Sandon. -"^ There
were prose-it with him  in the town nt
the time Mike Kerlin, Arch. Ciiishnlm.
Dick Iliimbley,  and Robt. Kerlin, (he
former  alone   of   whom 'remains'" a
present citizen,   as company with Mr
Cunning.     After rolling  up  the  lo��s
of   the   hotel   as   best    they   could,
could,    they    split    the    straight est
grained   that   could   be   found   into
"boards", if that is the technical name
for their production, pinned the edges
with jack knives, and made a lloor and
roof/ Wc may well imagine  the work
was as well done as the sewing of Evo
when   she  made garments  out  ol tig
leaves���not water-proof over coats, we
presume���for her liogc lord Adam.
There appears   to   bo   litllo   or no
record remaining of the doings of flic
first prospectors  on our hill to]is,  but
,     it is known that old John Sandon, who
gave, his name  to the creek (hat runs
down from the saw mill, and who was
f     drowned in  it about two years after,
came here in 1S91,   and locakd   with
;   Bruce White   and   Charles Chambers
:    the   Slocan Star   in   October'of that.
year.   They went   away later'in   the
fall and returned ��� tho next spring  to
resume   active,  operations   . on 'their
claim,     Before   Mr.   Saudon's   death
White ,nin.I associates  bought, out  the
interest-; ��f Sandon and Chambers   in
the Star,  and through   their foresight
made themselves wealthy men.   About
the time of the   discovery of the Star
the Noble Five; the Fred Lee and the
j   Payne group had been located, and the
Reco in   July  '02. '-Mr. J.UL Harris;
one of the: most   tireless   of Western
pioneers,   came .prospecting   in. the
spring of 1S92 and stuck to if till July
.  '92,   discovering  several   mines   that
turned   out   with   iinliflercnt   results.
Oh thc 5th  of July '02   Reco,  Brown

"Hi-. Harris  thinking   it  was  a better
���finch than his  cwn, in   company with
'-Messrs. | Kelly and  Horton   bought it

\made their fortunes.   This isliow tlie
; principal 'street   of   Sandon   got   its
name from the.Reco mine called after
its discoverer?- As we have said above,
the^nly way to civilization (at Kaslo)
all this time-was ever the road (?) via
Three Forks and bear Creek,   laid out
by G. W. Hughes,   one of the pioneer
freighters; who used at times to stop/at

Our aim will be to correct this as fully  as possible.     ,  There is no questioning the fact that  the,/ whole province of. British Columbia is rich in mineral resources.  It is equally a' fact that in this respect  the Slocan country is/particularly favored, and that.'in.all. that constitutes  the natural capabilities for successful  mining camps the vicinity of Sandon  is pre-emii e'nt. That other sections of  the country have well paying mines,  and offer golden opportunities for successful investments, goes without, a  question; th.it there are again other  sections so far unexplored and uninvestigated that may surpass usin.wealth'-  arid opportunities is also a fact that  present light' will not attempt to gainsay ; but that the Sandon section at  present '���������has numerically, more paying  mines that.-can.be operated at a less  expense than any. other in the country so fair operated, and that the camp  has a bigger pay roll -than any other  in the country so far operated, and i.as  therefote more money in commercial  circulation than any other town in the  country; are matters we consider it out-  duty to hold before the public.   .  As we have said above, It may be  that the future will develop more  localities more specially favored in  these respects. When such events do  transpire, The Review will be among  the first to acknowledge the facts,  always giving credit where credit is due.

But this riailwayqu.estioriihas  another  aspect that Manitoba: and trie entire.west  should lookrat in a different, light. ,   It' is  generallyVonceded by. statesmen,  that  the nearei/consumers can be got to   the  productftjo'nsumed, the better   for /con-  stirher and pro.chtcer. Now,as if arranged  for the purpose by Providence,  there is  an inte.rchangable production   between  Manitoba.;..aiyl   British   Columbia,   that  should have the deepest consideration of  the governments of both provinees,  the  height of land in the   mountains : Being  tlie dividing line. East of that the ri'atur--  al productions;   are   wheat and   other  grains, roots and   ve^etables^��������� the   very  things British. Columbia, must   have   at  any     prices      to      sustain    her.     increasing thousands of peojile   employed  in different classes of pursuits,   v On-the  other hand the latter provinco raises for  export in a,bundance  minerals, -luinber,  fish and fruits, the very productions   the  eastern slope of country must import for  all time.   Why then do not the   governments on both sides make a special effort  to   diminish.;  the cost of interchangable  freights and create blessings  for  both?  If instead of getting Manitoba's productions to the east at a much cheaper rate,  the Manitoba premier would only make  an effort to get them west where nature  intended them, to go, as far as coiisump;  tion demanded, and get cheaper'  return  freights., he would be taking a step   that  would   be    at. once   practicable,    and  sensible.   To our mind, before the   Du-  luth proposition is closed, which   as .we  showed in the   commencement- of  this  article, can  secure   in   any- event   but  very questionable service to th"<? farming'  community of Manitoba, the governments  of British Columbia and Manitoba should  jointly interview the ,C. P. R.- and see   if  something tangible in the way of  reduced inter-provincial ireights cannot.be  secured for   all   time.     Now, while . the  Crow's Nest railway, the Hudson's   Bay,  outlet, and the Duluth  scheme,  are   all  dangling before the country would be a  most opportune time for taking  up   the  proposition on its practical merits.     As  nature intended our trado to bo reciprocal, it. is a great'pity the exigencies   and  fancies of politicians shoulrl  pervert   it  for questionable ends.  -Vy     ",;y INCORPORATION.

Alt the circumstances in all countries husbanding  mining must be considered before sound  comparisons can be made. That the administration cannot be carried .on without ftither taxation is a statement subject to qualification when . the circumstances are considered. , In the first  place it must be acknowledged that in  proportion to population.

If it is proven these are' expended with  the utmost care .thsfc. advanced statesmanship would suggest, and that the  urgency of our necessities natural demand considoreed calls for more, then  the further taxation of mining companies  becomes a proper subject for. consideration, but not until tlieh. . ,If the News-  Advertiser vouches for the judiciousness  of all government, expenditures to date,  then it is in a position to defend further  mining* taxation, but not until then;  There is of course no reason why mining  companies should.be made stall.fed pets;  but on the ground that the New-Advertiser cefends protection to native iridus-j  tries by the Federal government,  whether mining Go's." in this province  should" be treated to liberality in taxation is a matter for thought.,  We agree with' the News-Advertiser  that the'eredit of the country anel the  boner of its name as a mining field must  be protected from the onslaughts of unprincipled individuals   and   companies,  Best water;the ������rirtlvcan/supply / for : all'  purposes���������fire, protection,; domestic.rises  and sWcrage if-necessary.: In many of  the eastern provinces where the /'people  are net so favored.bynatiii'e as they, are  here--iwhei'o they -.'have "tp; take;: :their  water supply,'through/nltatian,; from the  streams into Which the seweririrors emntv  '-���������.,'-..:':    V  -    /:y: ������������������', -���������:,'- ,:...:-.5' .--.',:    l  there is no phjiction to dramage.into,the  streams.'W'jjaro .iiifo'i'med-. the /health  inspectors   filvject": to/; the^'idrainago : of  Sandoii into tho.creek, but that objection  must.bo removed in 'he'interest^ot the  ,..'.    - ���������"'���������'. : ��������� ���������'���������  ', "   ,.', ��������� ���������,;,���������.:,,:,-..: t*.

As nearly as we  can get at the particulars, they are  these:    Last year ho! and   a partner  - made application a year ago to relocate the Yejseniite, -a dead -man's  'claim, on Blue Ridge.

Shipments have been resumed, two  car loads having been shipped Saturday last. It, is said that about'80 or -10  tons per day will be forwarded, of  which two-thirds will bosont to Pueblo,  Colorado, and the !balance will bt'  taken by the Puget Sound Reeluelion  ��������� works, at Everett. : A close, tip pr ox ii nation of values and cost, of production  have resulted in an estimate that this  quantity will net tho fortunate owners  of the property not less than 950,00-  per month This estimate is consider  ������d conservative by the initialed.  It is tinie the Department at Ottawa  paid some attention to tlie wants of  Sandon in the way of improved postal  facilities. Usually tho general delivery, on days of eastern mails, which  arrive at 11.30, is not open much -before 5 p.m. 'As Iho boys say, life is:  too short for a wait of five hours for  the curtain to rise.

Mr. Myiton has a list in  his office on which all subscriptions  large or small wili be thankfully received.  Some people say Sandon' cannot be a  large place, as there is not room for a  large place on its site.
