 1    C���������,   ..  *<-7>^ <*���������  -? -^-2.  ~>  r������^  /$���������:  VOL. 4.���������NO. 3.  SANDON, B. C, JUNE 23, 1.000.  $2.00 PER YEAR.  Saivdon IJebulIdm?  Although the fire swept away three-  quarters of the business places and the  residences of tlie city, leaving many  people worse than penniless���������that is  without means and owing money���������, the  greatest energy is displayed by the sufferers on every hand in their endeavor  .to re-establish themselves.  Stein Bros, are down to business in  their new two-story fiame near Burns'  storehouse and are, more extensively  than ever in the bakery, fruit and confectionery trade. J. Wood, in the same  line, is at work in tempoiary quarters,  but will sooiire-build.  Mr. Harris is converting tlie redelivery  stable, the only building sayed in the  centre of the town, into a hotel���������two-  story, 00 x 80,' fronting on the 00-foot  street to be constructed on the flumo  with a back entrance on Slocan Star  street. Tlie upper story will contain  the office, twenty bedrooms, bath-room,  two parlors, besides a spacious central  hallwav with a large skylight above.  Tlie lower lloor will have bar, billiard,  club, and (lining rooms, kitchen, barbershop and all tlie other appointments oi  a really first-class hotel. The dining  and bar rooms will have glass fronts,  and, though not having as many bedrooms, will be larger and better appointed than the Reco destroyed, which  is saying a great deal./ A few rods to  tho east, and connected by a wide sidewalk, he is erecting a two-story block,  the down stairs will have two stores and  the upstairs -will be laid out for offices.  Both buildings will have plate glass  fronts, will be plastered and fitted up in  fijri&hed city style in every particular,  Bennett & Walmsley have leased the  Atherton property, and are putting up  an extensive hotel, that will also be up  to date in all its arrangements. In a  week or two we will give fuller particulars.  Charles Walmsley has broken ground  on the old Kootenay hotel stand, and is  putting up a muclr better building than  the former.  "Dutch Jake" Kelson has the frame  work up of- a premises superior to those  destroyed. Alongside him is the Clifton  house, phoenix-like, two ��������� and a half  stories,nicely papered and 'well equipped  from cellar to attic. Robt. Cunning has  the lumber oh the ground and will erect  the Sandon hotel much better than the  one reduced to ashes. Dick Orandd has  the Ivanhoe revived in a neat, two-story  frame, as have also the proprietors of  Miners' hotel.  Aid. Thompson was  the first to build  westerly in the city after the fire, and  has had a steady trade since. ��������� ..-���������/  Mas Egan is on the skating rink site  for a new three-story "Palace."  P. Burns & Co. have their rotail meat  market in the cold storage building for  the present.  G. W. Grimmett, G. Knowles and G.  Melvin are supplysng all jewellry needs  in, make-shifts. ,.       '  Pitts and E. R. Atherton & Co. are  in temporary quarters. Her Majesty's  mail is handled in a tent at the rear of  the'latter's store.  Mrs. McKinnon has a two-story millinery premises under construction near  the now. Reco.  G, M. Spencer has turned the sword  into a pruning hook and has a neat restaurant on the old opera house ground  where the "Bitter Atonement" brought  grief to the city all around. The McDonald Bros, are also running a restaurant in the Balmoral.  A. David took time by the forelock  and re-erectcd his tailorshop and residence on tho old stand. J. R. CamerDn  is still dressing his customers in a small  shop below Galena street, while Armstrong & Co. 'are established in Folliott  & McMillan's annex.  I'". A. Wood, who retains a lurking admiration for the city that gave him  ^���������75,000 tinough the sale of bis interest  in the Last Chance mine, has leased for  a long period from the. K. & S. 120 feet  frontage on Reco avenue, across from  the C. P. R. depot, and vill erect a  substantial brick block thereon,- suitable  for stores, offices, etc., of which we will  write more fully later on.  . M. Krakenberg has a cigar factory and  a residence finished on Cody avenue.  Hunter Bros,, on their old stand, and  nearly all others who were in business  before the fire have up temporary premises, and are doing the best they can  until they see the street question fully  settled and know just how the business  interests ol the place are going to shape,  when many of thoni will re-build or occupy some of the new business blocks.  Aid. Crawford will be the "pioneer"  re-builder of Sunnyside. He is erecting  a magnificent "winged" two-story residence, with bay-wiudow and wide verandah on his lot and one purchased  from-R. Creech. It will be an imposing  structure from its elevated position.  Its Future,  Not Closed Down.  Although the Slocan Star let out over  60 men on the first of the month, it does  not imply that the property is idle.  There are still over 40 men at work on  development, and preparations are being  made for,a busy time later oh. Mr.  W. S. Drewry has just completed a survey of a 2,100-foot cross-cut tunnel,  which will be double tracked and, when  coinpleted, will be the main avenue to  the entire workings of the mine. It will  strike the vein at a vertical depth of 380  feet .below, the present workings, when  upraises and the usual other workings  will follow. After the tunnel passes the  wash, which is quite deep at that point,  air drills will be used to finish this important piece of work. '���������,!���������',-'  It is  ho secret that the  townsite of  Sandon is not the most inviting place in  the Province for residences, nevertheless  our.mineral resources in the surrounding  hills'will always support a large number  pf business houses, hotels, .etc, and with  them   must  follow a number of   residences.    From the huddled up situation  of the  builrlings before  tlie fire,   a visit  from  the  fiend  sooner or later was inevitable, but all hoped it would be later.  It came, however, sooner and left many  people homeless and financially .stranded.     Yet 'really   all who  suffered are  game  and  disposed  to  re-establish   as  best   thoy can.    It   is   very   fortunate  that after some   six- weeks' wrangling  among the property holders  a plan   Iuib  been decided  on by the people that, will  prove a blessing to all.   Though all the  details   are not completed, this  maybe  given  as   the  future "lay-out"  of  th"  place.. 'Salamander avenue, east of the  G. P. R., will be widened and improved,  and back of it, or next the K. & S., will  be   laid  out another   street t for   small  manufactories.    Reco avenue will probably remain as it is, and be built on  on  the north  side as far down' as   Pitts'  store and below which no buildings will  be nrected.  the street spreading  to  the  railway   embankment,    or  foothill,   an  average of 60.to 70 feet wide.    Whether  a wide Ptroet will be made between  the  C.P.R. depot and tlie Reco hotel ground  or between  the latter and tlie Bartlett  lot to  Flume street and   thence ' across  the C. P. R. to mill gulch,it is at present  premature  to say.    However, a CO-loot  street will extend   from  that crossing  down the flume to the lower end of the  town, wherever iu time that may be.   A  60-foot cross street from hill to hill will  be made on the site of the Goodonough  property and  Slocan News  stand,  and  another rie'a'r*the'Kootenay hotel, with  one probably half way between.    Slocan  Star street,  between the buildings on  the' south 'side:of Flume street, and the  C. P. R., will also be wide.   These wide  streets  should give a good  fire brigade  ample opportunity to work in case of a  fire,, and  thus render insurance available, both of which conditions being out  of, the question before the fire.  A feeling towards Mr. Harris has, to  some extent been the cause of the delay  in coming'to conclusions. That gentleman is like all other men, sometimes  right and some times wrong; but it is  bad policy to say such arid such alterations should not.be made because he  will profit by them. Any nia.ii holding  so many interests in any place is bound  to profit by any alterations made in tho  public welfare. The leading objects of  our. city council should be: the health  of the people, safety from fire and water  as far as possible, and improvements as  far as reasonable taxation will allow,  having an eye to proper economy. If  Mr. Harris benefits by  these,  as any  holder of his interests would benefit, it  is only one of the consequences of good  government.  The New Government.  The pnst week has been   an  eventful  one in  Provincial  politics.     "Fighting  Joe" and his colleagues resigned, recommending James Dunsmuir as his successor.   The latter i> now Premier and has  as his colleagues���������Hon. J. H. Turner,  finance;,D. M. Eberts, attorney-general;'  W. C.  Wells,   N. E. Kootenay,   public  works; J. D. Prentice, Lillooet,   Provin- ,t  cial sec'y and  education;   R. McBride,  minister of  mines.   A caucus of members in opposition to Joseph  was held  at Vancouver,  and with but less than a  dozen members, all the House promises  to support this government  through a  session, when a reconstruction is to'take  place.    It was at one time thought that  Mr. Green would have received the portfolio of minister of mines,  but whether  it was he would not take it or could not  get it we cannot say.    Of the material  at hand this is probably as strong a government as could be formed,   though we  do not for a moment  think any government with   Mr.. Dunsmuir���������'���������' as  premier  could be strong in an appeal to the  people.    So far as "The Review is concerned  we arc disposed to give the new government  a   fair  trial,    for  after   all   it   is  measures and  not men   the country   is  most interested in.     The. now  cabinet  will seek  re-election within  a few days  so the  House may  meet  for business  early  in July.   John Houston  was   hot  foot after a portfolio,   but he appears to  be distanced.    It does not look as if  the  House elected, by the Province was a  vindication of the eight-hour law, as the  especial   champions  of   the act said���������it,  would be.    Out of five or six  labor candidates but  Ralph Smith,   their leader,  was elected;   and but. four  Cottonites,  Cotton   himself   being   snowed   under.  The Turner element' numbers more than  one-third of the House after all.  Another significant event is the dismissal of Lieutenant-Governor Mclnnes  and the culling in of Sir Henri Joly, of  Quebec.  Changing Its Tune.  The Silvertonian now admits that the  Slocan voters' list is so imperfect it  ought to be destroyed before the next  election. That is just what the gentlemen knew who desired a proper revision  a'few months ago'. Nearly every available vote was polled in the last contest  and tho number was under 1,200, while  there were nearly 2;100 names on the  list. The country then paid for the  printing of about 900 bogus names unnecessarily. If all the bogus names had  been knocked off in revision, as they  should have been, considerable expense  and much inconvenience to the candidates would have been spared. 'The Mining Review.

In onr late disabilities we had  nothing- hut good wishes from all  our confreres, from.,those with  whom Ave had public differences  as well as those with, whom we  had none, with one single exception���������the New Denver Ledge.

'���������  Concerning the Wars.  disastrous fire of the 5th of May,  aud this is the first issue we have  had printed in ,our own office  since.

There js no doubt now that  the Boers put forward their best foot  first., With that broke their strength  was gone. They will keep up a sort of  running lire for some time longer, making stands occasionally, but the war is  viitually over and Krugcr will shortly  attempt to'make his escape, if indeed he  has not done so. It was a war for the  freedom of al! classes in the Transvaal,  which, was stubbornly denied by Kruger  to all but his pcopie.

It looks now, since China has declared  war azainst the world, that ninny countries will take a hand in the struggle till  China is wiped oil' the map of the Eastern Hemisphere, as was Poland.

Civilization and commercial advancement must  goon, and the nations that arbitrarily  endeavor lo impede them must suiter.

Prof. Odium was in the city this week.  Tom McGuigan has returned from his  Spokane visit.  Mr. F.A.Wood will commence his  brick block next week.  F. L. Christie is going to .reside, at  least partially, in New Denver.  From reports on the wing it would  appear the weeding fever has struck the  town again. ?  Premier Dunsmuir is'shortly lo visit  the Noble Five mine in' which he is  largely interested.  The K. & S. people are selling a.great.  many lots in all parts of the city where  they have properly.. ,      .  ��������� "Fighting Joe" and "personal" Governor Mclnnes are going to spend the  next ten days shooting craps together.  ' Mr. Riddle, of the S pokes m an -Review,  and Mr. Romcefell, insurance agent of  Vancouver, were in the city Wednesday.  It is understood that Messrs. M. L.  Grimmett. Jas..Williamson and P. A.  Dwver will shortly re-build residences  on Sunnyside.  R. A Beamish has a suit for .$2,100  damages against the Whitewater mine  for injuries he received on the property  some months ago.  Judge Lilly, Mayor Pitts and Solicitor  Grimmett went to Vancouver on lues-  day on' Grand Masonic Lodge business.  They are to be home to-morrow.  Mr. "Vallance is fitting up his new  residence, the Lloyd property, in excellent shape for 'the reception of Mrs.  Vallance, who returns from the east  shortly.  Slogan City is going to have much of  the Slocan on tho 1st, ancl a large 'lice  of the Orange Brotherhood on the 12th.  That ought to be happiness enough for  one town.  Mr. II. Tattrie left on Monday for the  maritime provinces where, we believe, a  fair maid awaits his coming. This is  the sequel of the large new house at the  milk ranch.  A party called on the Bp.ik on Wednesday and said he was "held up" the  night, befoi'p. At the time he was so  drunk it would have taken two men to  have held him up properly.  To do Mr. Green justice we may say  lie has not cone in with the Martin opposition, as the Ledge asserts. He f-im-  ply says he will not give tho new government a dependent support.  Folliott & McMillan have put up a  two-storv structure al the rear of their  planing mill. The upstairs is occupied  by Mr. Folliott as a residence, and the  ground lioor bv Armstrong & Co.,  merchant tailors.  Mr. Har-iis is displaying a great deal  -of public, liberality in ' the expenditures  he is making on Flume street, from his  new hotel up. Ho iH saving the corpor-  a heavy outlay. Natural accp.iLsitiveness  may be attributed to the act by some,  but none the less he is paying tint a lot  ot money the public would otherwise  sooner or later have to expend that  way. ���������  It is in a sense none of our business  what, people do with their own properly ;  but from our knowledge of the way such  things go we cannot help saying that if  the owners of real estate in tho place  would only sensibly lower their rentals  and sell at moderate prices to those who  would build and improve the town, it  would be money in their pockets continually and a great service to tho city.  Sandon will never be a Butte or a Lead-  ville, nothing more than a smart local  mining camp, and prices of realty ought  to be accordingly. Charging more will  only drive good'men away, aiid retard  growth and diminish the taxable property. This, is history every where else,  and it must be history here.  A water pipe is now laid up the gulch  past the Denver house.  Col. Braytou is booming the west end  lively selling lots every.  Mrs. Kay with George and Jimmy returned from Scotland on Thursday.  A great deal of gardening and some  farming is now going on in the Slocan  valley. '  Mr. Krakenberg will have his new  cigar factory, next the pop works, in full  blast in a few days.  It is generally understood the C. P. R.  will commence the Lardo extension of  their line early next month.  It is whispered the C. P. R. are likely  to build their passenger depot near  where McLaughlin's planing mill now  stands.  . Phil Hickey went lo Spokane tho  other dayi:but all the same work on the  concentrator and its accessories is going  ahead at more than a 2,:4o rate.  Mr. Jackson, interested in Lemon  Creek properties, was in tho city to-day  on his way to Woodstock, ?".B. His errand may be the same as Mr. Taltrio's.  Larry Doolan is spending some days  here shaking hands with Sandonites.  He,has resigned ,his position with the  K. & S. and has his eye on something  better.
