 VOL. 5.���������NO. 37.  SANDON, B. C, SATURDAY, MARCH 1, 1902.  $2.00 PER YEAR.  CUPS AN  The Grand Challenge, AH Comers,   Oliver,  Hudson  Bay Cups Won By Silver City Rinks, With  Good  Prospects of Winning the  Consolation Also.  The bonspiel ooened on SIonday evening last although on account of the soft  weather the prospects for curling were  not bright. The ice was wet and heavy  and good curling out of the question.  The visitors arrived by both railways  morning and 'evening, the number of  rinks expected being cut down to ten  by the non-appearance of the representatives from Ashcroft. and Phoenix.  The competing rinks were four from  Ro8sland, three from Nelson, two from  Kaslo and two from Revelstoke.  In the evening a meeting to arrange  the players was held in the Reco at  which it was arranged for the different  rinks to contest the All Comers cup  against the entire Sandon club, and the  bonspiel to start.,at 7:30 p.m. Four  'sheets'of ice were provided, one in the  curling rink and three in the skating  rink.  Sharp on time four roarin' games  started, and some of them were 'roarers'  in earnest. A- large number of spectators were present who were as enthusiastic as the curlers themselves.  The first four games were won by the  entire Sandon quartette, but in the next  series they were not bo successful; however, they had such a large score to their  . credit as to be pretty certain of winning  but. After the last game was played  the score stood Sandon 98; all-comers  5)4; leaving Sandon the victor by four  points. This is certainly a feather in  the Silver City's cap, as a number of its  leads never curled before this season  and these were pitted against picked  rinks from the outside. The local club  has a membership of 32, and of this  28 entered the contest, the other four  being unable to attend. The following  is a summary of the game:  FIRST   EVENT.  Mackintosh  Cup (allcomers), presented by Hon. C. IT, Mackintosh.  Sandon Rinks against an equal number of Visiting Rinks.  Prize���������Four Gentlemen's Travelling  Cases, value $50. Presented by the  Sandon Curling Club,  Scott beat Smith of Rossland by a score  of 12 to 6. In the first half the game  was 0 to 2 in favor of Smith, when Sandon got down to work and never gave  Rossland a chance to score the rest of  the game.  Dan McLachlan doubled up the score  with Fraser of the same city, 10 to 5.  Gomm worsted McQueen of the Golden City by 9 points to Mac's 5.  Hall saved Sandon from defeat by  Buchanan of Kaslo, in a close game by  one point, score 10 to 9.  Alex Crawford was vanquished by  Brown of Revelstoke, to the tune of  14 to G.  Hood got even by turning the tables  on Hodge of Nelson, by a score of 15 to 5)..  Grimmett administered the same dose  to Turner of the same city,score 11 to 8.  Gomm met defeat in his second game,  was played immediately after his first,  the heavy ice and his tired players telling severely against him. Plisoppo-  nent, Richardson of Nelson, piling up a  score of 18 points to the enthusiastic  Doctor's 5. ' Though defeated he was not  disheartened, and after playing nearly  all night he was as, jolly as ever,the  nextday. v  Grimmett in his second game was  pitted against. Rae of Revelstoke, and  after a very close contest tied him, at  the finish the score was 12 to 12.  One of the keenest matches in this  contest was that between Scott and the  redoubtable Gray of Rossland. This  game was played earl}'onTuesday morning and the ice in fair shape. It was  one of the most exciting in the schedule  and resulted in another tie, the score at  the close being 8 to 8.  This ended the series for the "All  Comers," the visiting rinks being all  defeated. This finishes thecontestonly  as far as outsiders are concerned, there  are four of the Sandon rinks undefeated, and these will contest each .other  later on. In any event the Mackintosh  All Comers cup will stay in Sandon for  a year at least.  played neither side scored, there being  no stones "in the house." But such as  the game was of wobbling instead of  curling it was very close. Some of the  spectators on seeing the stones coming  down the ice almost on the handles, remarked that they walked in the ring  instead of curling to the"T." A summary of the games played is as follows:  "Wilson of Sandon defeated Gray of  Rossland in a tight game by a score of  7 to 0.  Fraser of Rossland won his by default  Crawford of Sandon beat Smith of  Rossland in very close match by 1 point,  score 9 to 8.  Brown of Revelstoke downed Turner  of Nelson bv a score of 13 to 7.  Hall of Sandon put McQueen of Rossland out of this contest by 1 point. In  a well fought game the score at the close  was 11 to 10 in favor of Hall.  Rae of Revelstoke defeated Hodge of  Nelson in a score of 10 to 7.  McLachlan of Sandon came out victorious over Buchanan of Kaslo, the  score being 15 to 10.  Grimmett of Sandon met defeat by  Richardson of Nelson, the score being  11 to 7 in favor of the latter.  This ended the Grand Challenge contest on Tuesday. The ice was so sloppy  playing was discontinued for a, day to  see if the weather would turn cold  enough to freeze. There were seven  games to play before the winner could  be decided.  ..'THIRD EVENT.  Oliver Cup, presented by W. T. Oliver,  Esq., Victoria, B. C.  McQueen of Rossland defeated Richardson of Nelson by 3, score 11 to 8.        ,  Hall, Sandon, 14, Rae, Revelstoke, 10.  Richardson', Nelson. 13, McLachlan,  Sandon, 11.

Crawford of Sandon defeated McQueen  of Rossland by 1 point in the Oliver,  score 11 to 10, and as a result the.cup  will remain here.- There are three local  rinks still in the competion and the  finals will be played at their leisure;  Wilson of Sandon lost in the Grand  Challenge, heing defeated by Brown of  Revelstoke by a score 11 to 4.  The most exciting game of the bonspiel took place in the afternoon between  Hall of Sandon and Richardson of Nelson in the Grand Challenge com petition.  The game was very keen throughout  and in the twelfth end the score was  tied, each having 12 points to his credit.  This necessitated further playingand excitement was intense. When the end  was finished neither side had scored  and the,game still had to fought out,  making 14'ends in all. In the first half  honors were about even, when finally  Hall drew one into the circle which was  well guarded. Richardson had the last,  shot and after much deliberation decided to draw into circle. After taking  aim lie let fly, barely missing Hall's  stone, but being heavy went clear  through to the wall, leaving Hall the  victor by 1 point amid a thunder of applause from the spectators. This left  the final between the latter and Brown  of Reyelstoke.  In the Consolation contest, McLachlan of Sandon defeated Smith of Rossland, score 11 to 9.   Grimmett of  San-  Rae of Revelstoke put McLachlan of j don in a hard fought match beat Fraser  Sandon out of this contest by securing of Rossland by  1   point  after 13 ends  13 points to the hitter's 8.  Crawford of Sandon defeated Fraser  of Rossland by a score of 13 to 10.  These three were all that played  for this cup when it was decided to suspend all games for a day on account of  the weather.

In this event, the most coveted of  all the cups and trophies competed  for during the bonspiel, which commenced on Tuesday morning, resulted  in no brilliant play on account of the  poor condition of the ice. There were  more hogs than ringers, in some ends  The ice being in fairly good shape on  Wednesday it was decided to continue  playing in the evening and  stay at it  night and day until  the finish, good or  bad   ice.

We understand it is  the intention of  the meeting of the Associated Boards of  Trade to be held at Kaslo this week and  longer of necessary, to pass strong resolutions in favor of a  protective .tariff on  lead and   lead  products.   Although   a  Conservative, the Editor of this paper  has never   favored  high  tariffs as an  abstract principle;   but  ciecumstances  alter all cases.   Our lead producers  are  shutout of the American  markets by a  duty of 2 1-8 cents a pound . on crossing  the border.   But   for   that   duty   they  could get 3 1-2 cents a pound  for raw  lead from the American Trust, thc same  as.the American producers are getting.  If they had access to that market they  could easily operate all tlie mines,  pay  the government tax and  the wages  the  men want without complaint; but they  can't.   If they  then  cannot reach  the  American market,  what reason is there  why they should  not have control of  SEVEN TO ONE  Sometimes the weight goes  up that way when taking Scott's  Emulsion.

Why we ask should this be allowed,  when our mines are shut up for the  want of a market?  An advanced tariff will shut out all  foreign products, and give our people a  chance to supply home demands. With  a refinery, which we will soon have, we  can at once supply the pig for which  our people in B..C., who require it, are  now paying 8 cents. With inexpensive  additions to the refinery, our paint  manufacturers can be supplied at reasonable figures, certainly lower than those  quoted by the American producers, .who  have to pay 4 cents to the trust for the  raw.material. With other inexpensive  works again our people should be able  to supply piping not only for home consumption, but for export as well. It  appears to us that when Canadian  manufacturers can buy the raw product  at a little more than half what their  American competitors have to pay, they  should be able to compete with them in  any outside market reached by American products.

Life is a duel  in the dark with  disease. One false step, one' mistake,  and the attack comes swift and sudden.  The mistake which commonly opens the  way for an attack by disease is neglect  of the symptoms of stomach trouble.  When eating is followed by undue fullness, belchings, sour or bitter risings,  etc., disease is attacking the stomach.  The best way to frustrate such an attack is to use Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery. It cures diseases of the  stomach and other organs of digestion  and nutrition, and makes the body  strong and healthy.  "I was suffering very much with my head and  stomach," writes Mrs. W. C. Gill, of.Wetdou,  Shelby Co., Ala., "head was so dizzy when I  would raise up in bed would fall right back.  Could eat but very little, in fact scarcely anything-, there seemed to be a heavy weight in rpy  stomach so I could not rest; I had to belch very  often and would vomit up nearly everything I  ate.

The Nelson Miner throws its hat in  the air because the Nelson team beat  the Sandon's. at Rossland on Saiurday in  a score of 4 to 2, as the referoe has it,  and not 5 to 2 as the Miner.puts it.

Rossland first beat Trail 9 to  3; Nelson next defeated Rossland 7 to  1; Sandon then defeated Phoenix 8 to  4, though some of the "Phoenicians"  were old eastern players.- In the last  struggleNelson beat Sandon 4 to 2.  -, It must he here stated some of Nelson's men were old eastern players,  while not more than two of Sandon's  ever played a niatch outside of Kootenay, and all but two of the number  were in the juniors till this year. It  may further be noted that all Sandon's  best, last year's juniors were not in the  contest either. Besides this, man for  man, the Nelsons were 30 lbs. the  heavier men. The heaviest man, or  rather boy, for several of the kids  not over 17 years of age, is but 100 lbs.,  while several of Nelsons were nearly  200 lbs. In the first half the contest  was a tie���������I to 1, but weight and durability, and not science won , 3 to 1 for  the second half. We believe yet that if  all Sandon's best kids were together,  they could defeat the giants of Nelson  and pull those hats out of the air.

If care be not exercised in the preservation of our timber supplies/timbering  will be ere long a matter of serious  moment to the mines of thc Slocan.  So far most of the mines have been able  to meet their requirements from the  hills adjacent to the.mines; but this  supply is becoming depleted ; and forest  fires have played such havoc with the  woods in general that suitable timber in  the country is becoming scarce. Should  present cramping conditions, even of  lesser form, continue to harrass operations, and with timber as expensive ��������� as  it will be when brought  mining operations will  night out of the question.  The government must adopt more  precautionary measures against bush  fires, so that the little timber now available may be preserved, and that the  soft undergrowth may be preserved, so  as to stave off tlie evil clay as long  as possible.

The Ottawa Deal Goes Throngh.  The leases and owners of the Ottawa  were informed on Wednesday that the  money was in the bank to cover the  option held on that property by Pittsburg capitalists, associated with W. D.  Wrighter, of Spokane. When here a  month ago Messrs. Coleman andWright-  er secured a 30 day option, which expired last Saturday. The price of the  bond is in the -neighborhood of $45,000  but the particulars will be made known  when the papers are signed. At the  mine things are looking uncommonly  well, the paystreak showing 18 inches of  chipping ore in the face of the drift. A  contraction occurred in the vein a  couple of weeks ago, but it has been  passed and the vein wonderfully  proved.���������Slocan Drill.  im-  The Marion made another shipment  of 40 tons of ore, and another 100 ton  shipment is being brought down from  tlie mine this week.  The Neepawa sent out its first car of  ore under the new management this  ���������week. From now on the shipments are  expected to reach 100 tons a month.  TheChapleau mine is now assigned  to the creditors, and the government, is  making an effort to have the latter paid  out pf the property as far as possible.

WEST BAKER STREET^ NELSON, B.C. THE MINING REVIEW���������Saturday, March i, 1902.  Nelson Wins CliaiiiplonsMp.  Sandon Defeated at   Rossland  By a  Score of 4 to 2 By Nelson.  When the facts are all known, however, the Nelson paper has not so much  to crow about. After saying it was the  fastest match ever played in Rossland,  the Miner, an independent paper  says:  The Sandon seven was also identical  . with the team that defeated Phoenix  on Friday afternoon���������Hogan in goal,  J. Crawford at point, \V. Crawford at  cover, Howarth on the right wing, Hood  at centre, Griorson onleft wing and E.  Crawford rover. The city of Sandon is  to be congratulated on turning out as  fast and clever an aggregation of hockev-  ists as the seven men who came to Rossland to represent the red and white in  the senior hockey matches. The men  played fast hockey and played every  minute of the game. Their weak point  as compared with Nelson was the point  and cover men. Tlie Crawfords are a  strong combination, but they were not  up to the standard of Nelson's defence  men, although Hogan in goal is a more  experienced player than Greyerbiehl of  Nelson. It was in the defence that  8andon lost. . When Sandon attacked  the speed developed by the forward line  was splendid and elicited hearty applause, but their defence was not as  strong as Nelson's, and it is on this one  point that the only apparant., difference  in strength between the teams can be  located, Sandon had the support of  tlie majority of the Rosslanders last  night, and it was the gencial opinion  that on fast ice the table would have  been reversed, that is a point that could  only be demonstrated, however, in actual practice. Certain it is that the Nelson men as a whole were heavier than  the plucky Sandon seven.  The initial face-off was   made  about  8.20, and after the first minute's play it  was evident to the spectators that  the  game was to be a treat for hockey enthusiasts.    The players started in with  a vigor and rush   that  promised great  things, and. at no  time did they relax  their efforts.   First blood  was secured  by Sandon after a neat rush and combination play ending with a hot shot by  Howarth which   escapad   Greyerbiehl.  Then  Nelson   scored   twice after keen  play, but  before   the first half  ended  Sandon added another notch to its tally  suck, and the score was tied.  The second half opened in the most  promising manner. It was evident that  the management of the Nelson team and  the pl'ayers had canvassed the situation  thoroughly, for they went into the game  with renewed vigor and a definite plan'  of action that had results. Three times  did the green and white descend on  Sandon's gool and hurl the elusive gypsum past Hogan. After the first goal  was secured the Sandon men played  with a rush that would have .had the  desired result had Nelson been leasable  in point and cover. Again and again  did Jed's and Archibald, and particularly the latter, turn what seemed to be  an invincible rush, and it was in the  interim of these determined attacks  that Sandon's citadel was successfully  assaulted. After Nelson secured its  fourth goal it was evident that only circumstances out of the ordinary could  avert the ultimate result, but the Sandon men contested the game to the last  second, cheered by the warm applause  of the audience."    ,      '  FOR OVER FIFTY YEAKS.

A number of tlie Rossland curlers paid  a visit to the Payne on Wednesday, to  get at sight of a silver-lead mine.  Git is understood the Nelson hockey  club, that is ttie B.C. champions, are to  meet the Sandons here on Wednesday  next, when there will be a hot time in  the old town.  Rev. A. M. Ssinford came over with  the curlers from Rossland and isTenew-  ing'acquaintances here. His numerous  .friends were pleased to see him.  G. 0. Buchanan, s'kip of one of the  rinks from Kaslo attending the bonspiel, had to leave for home on Wednesday to attend the meeting of the Associate Boards of Trade.  Win.

He  wm.s carried   to  his home and has been  o nfined to bed tin.- past week,  John Houston has a strike of his own  on hand, and many will be curious to  see how he handles it. His hands have  struck, so the story goes, for non-payment of wages. Perhaps he will call  them all sons of feminine canines.  The bonspiel cups, trophies and handsome prizesaccompanying them on ex-;  hibition in Hunter-Kendrick's window,  ..were photographed by J. E. Wood and  R. H. Trueman on Thursday night.  Special lights; were placed in position  and the window tastefully arranged.  It is quite likely a meeting will be  held in town at an early day to organize '  a Board of Trade; If, our business men  have sand enough in them to keep the  .control'of the institution in their own  hands it may be a biasing, -''It they  allow it to be otherwise'it will certainly  become a curse.  The celebrated suit between Coplen  and Callaghan over the Cube Lode and  Cody and Joker is again in evidence at  Victoria. In all this, has involved 18  actions.

The courts have all along  decided the Cube Lode is invalid in that  it overlaps the others registered previous to it.  Father Cote was summoned to Kaslo  by a telegram on Tuesday to attend the  bedside of a boy named Bishop. It appears the young lad who was about 13  years of age, was riding on a mule and  leading another with a rope attached to  the halter, and one end tied around his  body. , The supposition is he was pulled  off by the hind mule, and being unable  to extricate himself-was dragged to  death along thc trail. When picked up  he was carried home and the docter  hastily sent for, but nothing could be  doneas upon examination life was found  to be extinct.  Hiram Paschal, proprietor of the Union hotel, followed the late police magistrate into the post office the other day,  where a number of people were waiting  for their mail, and called him all the  obscene and filthly names he could lay  tongue to. It appears Paschal was fined  by that functionary in the police court  some 18 months ago for assualting  another man, and this has gratad on his  mind ever since. An information was  laid against him by the Chief of police,  and Paschal was summoned to appear  before Sewell and, Sandilands, J. Ps.,  who mulchod him to the tune of .$50fine  and $4.25 costs.
