Array i������\  -yy*-4jHsz������^*'.  VOL. 1.    NO. 38.  SANDON, B. C, SATURDAY, MARCH 12, 1898.  PRICE FIVE CENTS.  OUR MHP I.  A Patriotic Speech by a Canadian,  Mr. D'Arcy Magee.  The following letter from Mr. D'Arcy  H. MacMahon, a son of Mr. Justice  MacMahon, appeared in a recent issue  of the Ottawa Citizen :  "After  reading   a   speech   of Hon.  D'Arcy McGee's. delivered in London  in 1896, one  is impressed  by the marvellous  change   in   feeling   that   has  taken place iu respect to tlie colonies  during the time  that  has since intervened.   In that speech he refers to the  then  not inconsiderable   minority of  those   who in   Great Britain   devoted  themselves to the consideration of thc  colonial question as being  adverse  to  thc retention   by England  of her   colonics in  North America.   He said :���������  'Now I know well   there is  an  active  propagandist   school   growing   up   in  England,  who teach the'paradox  that  by diminishing the area of England's  responsibility they  can   imcreaso the  volume'of England's power ;  that  the  true way to niiik? their country greater  is  to make her less,  and  to  increase  her perpendicular she must diminish  her base (Laughter).    [ will only  answer to   that   style   of  argument   by  pointing to the facts  as they exist in  North   America.     A   great   power, a  first-class power, has grown into being  on this  continent within  a century;  that groat Pacific power has become a  first-class   military power within  the  present decade, and  when,  I ask  the  anti-colonial doctrinarians did ever a  new nation inherit  the tempting estate of power without using and enjoy-  present was 150.   The manner in which  the intruders were detected is interesting.    As usual, each guest, on advancing to  the  entrance of the receiving  room, was told  by an official to "give  your name to tho officers who will present you."   The name of each   gurst  was called out twice, first by the officer  introducing to the President, and again  by the officer who mads the presentation    to   Mrs.   McKinley.      Trie   announcement   was made with distinctness.   But this year an attache ot the  White House stood in a secluded nook  .ind took down every   name that was  called    out.      Comparison   with   the  roster of the invited  was made subsequently, and in this way the names of  the uninvited were singled out and the  black-list  was created.   This was not  all.    Doorkeepers from the Senate and  Mouse were present to add their knowledge of faces to that  of   lhe  White  House   ushers.    Alphabetical lists  of  the invited were in  the  possession of  the officials.    When   there  was doubt  about anyone the lists were c������nsulted.  Some of the uninvited  were asked for  their addresses.   Subsequently letters  were addressed to several ol those who  had   come, without invitation  asking  for explanations of the breach.    Most  of the letters  were ignored.     Several  replied, laying the blame on Congress  men, from whom  thev claim   to have  received   verbal   invitations.     Half n  dozen department people were caught,  and their cases were referred to superior o'" cials.  This and That.  THE GREAT NOTHERN EXTENSION.  ing it? (Cheers.) ^Commercially, England and America are inclined to be  rivals, not allies���������rivds on land, rivals  on sea. If a commercial policy be the  be-all and the end-all of British statesmanship how will they maintain that  policy, how will they hold their own  on the Atlantic or Pacific without a  post or a fort on either ocean which  the j* can call their own ? (Cheers.) If  I were an Englishman, I would resent,  as thc worst species of incivism, such  articles as those of the anti-colonist  Bcctii.n; being a (.'annilian representative 1 content myself with saying that  I firmly believe no other influence  would'havo such a tonde'icy���������slid it rise  to Imperial proportions���������to estrange.,  these provinces altogether from thc  Mother Country as the evil influence  of the new light political philosophy.  (Cheers.)  ���������'No one questions that, through the  Jubilee celebrations interest, has been  centered in the colonies ; an incentive  has been giv-n to tlie 'study of their  resources, and a greater consideration  of the advantages they afford as a field  for Lhe capitalist and the emigrant,  and untold benefits must necessarily  result to tlie Dominion by being thus  prominently and favorably brought to  the attention of tho whole world. But  what is of more importance to us is  t .at on that occasion arid in the heart  of the Empire, with .universal acclaim,  we were welcomed as part of the great  British federation.over which the protecting arm ol the Empire would ever  be stretched for the preservation of  out* territory as an integral part of the  Greater Britain. V  "There is no longer any hostility in  England to colonial connection; and  whatever lukewarmness may have existed to such connection at the tiiue  Mr. Chamberlain assumed office as  ���������Colonial Secretary has been entirely  .dispelled by the virile force with  which that office has be<n administered, aided by the thorough knowledge which ho is shown to possess1 of  our requirements.  Another   Surveying   Party    Will    Start  From Nelson.  N. D. Miller, C. N. Miller, G. Keefer  and H. Nation are superintending the  extension of the Great Northern from  Bonner's Ferry to the Boundary line,  says thc Nelson Tribune. Mr. Nation  is tlie son of tho financial backer of  the Nelson & Bedlington railway. The  proposed line joins tl.c Great Northern  near the depot at Bonner's Ferry and  crosses the Kootenay river below the  old landing. It then skirts the foothills above high water mark. Another  sur-py gang will be put on from this  end and two or three lines run; from  which a definite grade will be selected.  To the Editor of The Mining Review:  Sir,���������It seems, by  their silence,  the  Kaslo papers   are unable to reply   fo  your   very  pertinent questions  about  their  pay   roll   and  shipping   mine.'*.  With your kind permission  I will endeavor, in the interests of the  city of  Sandon, to answer some of those question."; by submitting a few facts, which  every Sandonite ns well aR myself can  see, are daily brought   to our notice.  Now,  take any of our mines  adjacent  to Sandon,   the   Slocan Star,   for instance.   Fourteen men were paid off a  short time ago, they had dinner at the  mine, then made a bee-line  for the K.  & S. depot with their blanket-), then to  the Bank to get  their cheques cashed,  thou off on the t**ain to Kaslo.    There,  before 4S  hours   were passed,   thn-c-  qnarters of their earnings were spent  chiefly in liquor, fun and   a small per-  ci ntitge  in useful merchandise., This  is    not  by    any    means   an   isolated  ease, nor   is it   confined   strictly   to  miners   alone.      1-or   instance,    what  about the brigade  of snows hovellers  who     went   to   Kaslo,    drew     their  pay,   blew   it   in and    came  back lo  Sandon biv/kc.    Numerous instances of  this kind  can be quoted  if necessary.  Some go farther away -than Kaslo for  the desired fun and recreation,  after,  probably, several months  hard  work.  Consequently these mines are of more  benetit to Kaslo and other towns than  to Sandon, and in more ways than one.  Where do  they purchase the majority  of their supplies  for cither hoarding  house or mine?   Eequire into this and  you will find   that not.  more, than 10  per cent, is purchased  here locally.    1  think it is   very plain to an observing  man that  Kaslo   lias r some claim   to  place these mines' on her shipping list  and pay roll.  Now, Sir,   why is this thus ?    What  do the miners say,   "Oh,  thete'snoth-  two general stores, drug stori, blacksmith fdioi'., livery and feed stable--,  and with the opening of spiring will  have a brick plui.t, and now has two  saw mills, which find ready sale for all  the lumber they can cut for- building  and railroad purposes. Messrs. Me-  Mahon brothers were thc first to start,  business there, and their trade has so  increased that thev now have one of  lhe largest mercantile institutions in  the East Kootenay.  A telephone line is now being constructed between Fort Steele and  r>ioyic, and will be in operation by  March lo, and it is the intention of  this company to connect all ihe mining camps with Fort, Steele as fast as  it j.������, practical to do so.���������Spokesman-  Review.  i m m.

White House Black List,  . lhe United States White House has  a black list. It is an interesting sou ���������*���������  enir of this season's receptions. It  goes  to prove that there arc persons  who own line clothes and who are not  so thin-skinned'.'as to remain away  from places to which they aire not invited. The invitations given this year  to the White House receptions were  prepared with unusual care. Lists of  the invited were kept, and'sards' were  issued to tho individuals hy name.  The heretofore, indefinite and indiscriminate "and ladies" was riot employed. That there might be no misunderstandings, the secretary to the  president; Mr. Porter, and the. gentlemen associated with hi in in the management of details, let it be known  through the newspapers that steps  would be taken to detect any who  came without invitations. But the  method to be employed was not explained. The trap was set and it did  its duty. At one reception 213 persons  who had not been invited came to'the  White House and participated. At  another affair the number ������f uninvited  Obituary.  Chief Justice Davie died at his residence, Victoria, on Monday last. For  many years the deceased had been a  central figure in B. C. polities, was for  .some years premier, which position  lie resigned to accept the Chief Justiceship of thc province. The deceased  wag born in March 1852 at Brixton,  England. He came to this province  with his father when but 10 years old.  lie never had more than an ordinary  English education which he got at a  private school. He was admitted to  'practise'as an attorney at 21 years of  age, and was appointed -a. Q. C. in 1888.  He entered politics in 18S2, became a  minister in 18S8, and soon after premier oh tlie death of Premier, Robson.  He was practically;a. self-made man,  but was possessed of fine abilities.  Though never a pleasing speaker his  addresses werealwaysdistinguished for  their commonsense. ..Itis more than  likely Attorney-General Eberts will be  chosen his successor, that is if politics  at Ottawa are not too strong for the  time being.- . ���������  In the Legislature.  Victoria, March���������Delays continue  with the Legislature, for while it was  expected to see the. estimates presented and the Lieutenant-Governor  attend to. assent to the Revised Statutes  bill, these.anticipations were not realized. His Honor's official visit is now  arranged for to-morrow, while the estimates will crime down on Monday.  This afternoon's session was short and  barren, the chief .interest was lying  in the petitions presented. One of  these was from A. A.. Far well, ,of  Harrison Hot Springs, regarding  the substitution of tin automatic ball  ballot for th'** paper ballot iiv elections,  and asking for .nn opportunity to exhibit his unique invention to the  House A'ith'the end that'it may be  given,a toit at tlie ap-iroachiiiggeneral  contest.

They are behind the times in thc  matter of entertainment." The snow  shovellers and others say pretty much  the same thing. What do the mine  owners say for not dealing here more  exclusively ?,Sim ply,' We can do much  better outside! " Th is is a matter that  our-local merchants shoulcMook into.  Some of the mine owners are not adverse to en.dosing parcels of T. Eaton's  dry goods in a car load of hardware.  This practice must be good for the  local dry goods men, and does not hurt  the hardware trade.  If Sandon is to grow and prosper  some means should be adopted to hold  thc money in town. Opportunities  should be given and encouraged ior  catering to the peculiar requirements  of the country. Business men will  only add to their trade and profit by  making it possible for the mines to get  their supplies through them. Hotel  keepers should look more sharph after  the comfort and requirements of their  patrons. Amusements of .various  kinds should be provided to meet the  demand,, and of such a nature that  those who go elsewhere will soon be  brought.to know things can be had in  Sandon equal to any outside. And not  only that, but outsiders will soon find  their way here instead of other points.  Our city council and the public generally ought to wake up and redeem  this city before it is too late and our  population gone.  I think the different churches here  ought to provide entertainments of a  secular character, of such an attractive  nature that the public would not willingly miss them. John Wesley said  hedid'not see what right the devil had  to all the best music. 1 write these  few lines in the interest and welfare of  Sandon, and trust they will have that  effect.   I beg to remain  Yours truly,  Awake.  Vancouver, March 1.���������Tlie following  letter was  received   hy   your   corre���������  pondent to day from one of Mackenzie  ami Mann staff, dated   Wrangel,   February 23:  "The steamer Joan with the  lirst outfit   of   the   Mackenzie   party,  eighty   men   and    thirty-six    horses,  reached Wrangel   on   the   22nd.      At  Dixon's Entrance  the Joan   narrowly  escaped destruction in the  fog and   a  furious storm.   She ran  ashore,   and,  but for the magnificent seamanship of  Captain Lock, another wreck with   all  hands lost would have been chronicled.  All other   steamers   will   be   delayed  three days, as they dared not face the  terrible storm.  "Wrangel is crowded beyond my  power to describe. Everything is wide  open. Roulette. Black Tack, faro,  three card monte, and old fake "times  are runninj- full blast. Lumber is extremely scarce It has all been bought  up at fabulous prices, but there is not  enough!. People are sleeping on  verandas, in the Catholic mission  house, and on boards in the open.  Wherever there is a sheltered spot  they aro packed together like sardines  in a can. For pork and beans and a  six-by-three board, yon are assessed  a dollar and a half a day. Many sleep  in the snow and cerebro spinal meningitis is carrying off numbers. The  miners call cill it "Come and get us."  "Heaven only knows where thc next  rii.sh of-peoplo are going Lop'ut up.    So-  one is going over the trail. It took  four men and ten dogs 15 days to make  10 miles. Tho road is clear for fifteen  miles, then the wind cannot bct. faced  by man or 'icust. The snow is 10 I'cet  deep on the ic>\  "By these moans 1,000 miners arc  blocked at the Stickecn river. People  coming in from Skagway and Dyea  declared that death is king and chaos  reigns. Death camps on the trails and  in the towns. At Skagway tho death  rate, chiefly from spiHal meningitis,  is ten per day. On the trails many  deaths are occurring, but the names of  and the number of victims will not be  known for a long time to come.  "Neil Keith is in charge of the Mackenzie and Man party. His staff consists of,Dr. Clendcning, Lindsay ; Bert  Meek, Winnipeg; Fred Caldcr, Winnipeg ; A.. M. Burns, Montreal, and E. It;'  Weldon, St. Thomas.  One of the first straws to occasion the  present dullness in trade was tho stoppage of the Noble Five last fall throwing some eighty mei out of employment, and the Inability of those of  them who remained around to getem-  ployment since. It looks, however, as  if a return of the good times would  souri again set in.  For some time it has   hern   noised  around that James Dunsinuir, ol*   Victoria, were   putting   money   into   thc  initio and that it would shortly pay its  debts and   resume   operations   again.  From whom the money is  coming   we  know not, nor does it concern the public.   Suffice it then to sny  that   some  SloO.OOO has been secured,  lo   pay   off  the SGO.OOO indebtedness, mostly to the  Bank of B. N. A. and ret ain'thc remaining $90,000 for development and   working expenses.    We understand   Mr.  J.  G. McGuigan, who was in town. Thursday, and went up to'the mine over the I  Reco trail, was   mainly   instrumental  in bringing about this happy condition  of tilings, and he is  to   be retained an  manager, and Mr. G. B.   McDonald   as  ������������������u conn taut.  We believe the main desire of the  new manageniein is to promote development to perfection, shipping little  if any for sometime. The mine is  generally supposed to be a good one,  the plant, coni-entrator and trani are  unexcelled,in the country, and all that  it required is good management for a  time to drift the institution oyer all  difficulties. Some 30 or more miners  will be at work in a few days and  under tho foremanship of Tom McGuigan and the management named  above, there is no doubt, but that the  .Noble Five will soon again retain its  once prominent position and assist  much in giving a now impetus to  mining operations in this portion of  the country.  , thing about the height and size ol  the  French pretendu.   The   barrister   immediately order for this aJJy   the   exact counterpart of every suit  already  ordered by the Marquis.   The lirst day  at dinner the poor young Marquis was  rather disconcerted whenj upon entering   the   dining   room,    his    glance  alignted on  the  very   counterpart   of  himself, standing stiff and self-centred  behind the Englishman's   chair;   and  he looked angrily at his rival to sec if  any insult was intended, but the   Englishman was intent upon making himself agreeable to the lady to notice hi ���������  milled temper.   The second   day   the  same scene was enacted, although our  hero had completely changed even tlie  stylo of his whole tournure; and again  \\';iK the same ill-humor displayed during the whole of dinner, while the Englishman was profiling by   the  silence  of his   witty   rival.

Probably, as 'much'improvement has  taken place at.Moyie City, situated on  the Movie lake at the base of the  mountain which holds the celebrated  Eugene group, as any place in tho East  Koqtenays. While all of these groups  are working, the forces are small, the  owners preferring the rnilroad for shipment of ores. Several thousand tons  of lead and silver ore are oh the dumps  awaiting shipment, while across the  lake on the west side Capt. Sanborne  and others have struck a vein of ore  which runs higher than the St. Eugene, although the lead is not so wide.  There are ten or fifteen other locations  on that side of the lake, all showing  more or less mineral of high grade.  Moyie City   now has three hotels,  You hear people saying every day the  Slocan would perhaps be the greatest  mining centre of the world, if only the  metal was gold instead of silver. . This  kind of talk is all bosh, and altogether  unworthy of any man fa his natural  senses, as it is results count in mining  and not theory or speculations. Let us  look at practical operations for a moment. Though ton for ton there is no  silver mine in the world that gives better  results than the Reco here, yet there are  many in this section whose outputs.  Now, for two years, 1S95 and 1S96,  the gold output of the West Kootenay  mines was 57,768 tons, averaging $34.17  per ton. Lest we should be accused of  making an unfair comparison for silver  by quoting the results of the Reco alone,  we may say in '95 and '96 the average  of the Slocan .silver-lend mines was  SI i6.03 per ton. We have-ih'eu >!?110.03  from silver-lead mines in this section  against $34.17 from gold mining. No  one believes silver is going to'drop much  lower than it has-iaverajjed in 1895 and  1890, but even if it should, at this difference in the results of operation the mine  owners could stand it aud still have  much more satisfactory returns than  their gold confreres have in other sections of the country.  Helena Independent: The state  p**ess Is discussing tho question of- a  union of bi-mctallic forces of Montana  for the fall campaign, naturally evoked  by the addresses recently issued by  the chairman of the national committees of the democratic, populist and  silver republican parties. A diversity  of opinion is manifested. The Demo  cratic party, which has the least to  gain by such union, for the reason  that it can achieve succt ss without  the aid of its former allies, is apparently thc least riisttirbid over the  situation. It is ready to make any  reasonable sacrifice for the good of thc  cause. If the national leaders deem  it-best that such a union should be  effected in order to strengthen tbc lines  elsewhere, the Democrats of Montana  will not be found arrayed against the  judgement and wishes of the men who  arc so ably conducting the national  contest. They believe in giving all  assistance possible to Chairmen Jones  and White and William J, Bryan.  ,.  Ottawa, March  7.���������Considerable ill-  feeling has beej aroused here over the  conditions    which     Congress    seeks  to   impose   in    return    for    bonding  privileges   which   may    be     granted  Canadians at Wrangle.     Not only   is  Canada to  concede everything regarding the AJtantio fisheries   which   has  been in dispute   since   1819,   but  she  must admit American miners'   outfits  up to 1,000 pounds free of   duty   and  must abolish the monopoly' clause in  the Mann-Mackenzie charter.

Mr.    Coste   does   not   propose   to  go  through to tlie Stickine by that  route  but will return to the coast   and   proceed on the Samson.

The barrister had many rivals, but the most formidable was a g-ntleniiin acknowledged to be the most approved dandy  in Paris. The holy selected these two  to decide from, and invited them both  to her chateau. The Frenchman  declared to his friends that he meant  to cut the matter short at oiv;c by so  outshining the Englishman, by his  dress, that thc latter would retire from  the li Id, crushed to atoms by the  superior skill lie was determined to  manifest on the occasion.

Far Frozen  The Star people have been driving a  tunnel lower down than these so far  operated,-for some time past, and'were  reward d the past, week by striking  the lead. Altogilhor their' discovery  presents nothing phenomenal, yet indications are a superiority of, metal  over that found in the higher, tunnels,  all of which goes to confirm the theory,  ores are forced from a distance centre-  ward,and the nearer the original source  the better the quality of ore. This at  least is the history so far as operations  in the Slocan have been prosecuted.  QUEER HEART FEELING.  Queer feelings in the heart ate daily  complained of by multitudes of people  ���������don't know the cause, but it makes  ehem nervous, irritable and unfit for  ither work or pleasure. Mr. B. A.  Ross. Ailsa Craig, Ont.. explains it.  He says: "It came- from la grippe.  I was irritable, worried, dizzy, short of  breath and had such a queer feeling  in my heart that I thought I would  give up the ghost. Milburn's Heart  and Nerve Pills changed all this, and  I am free, to-day lrom all these  troubles."  The first white woman to penetrate  the Casfiar country, and who 21 j*ears  ago visited Alaska in search of gold,  arrived:ih the city lasttight fron San  Francisco, says the Victoria Colonist.  Sneis Miss Nellie .Cashman, and in  addition to having spent several years  in the-frozen north, she has prosecuted  her search for gold with varying success in almost every <mining;regiooi in  the United States. She is now out for  the. big stake, nothsng more or less  than the mother lode of the far-famed  Klondyke region. She says if her experience in quartz mining will stand  her in good need and her proverbial  good luck in mining matters stays  with her, she will have a chance at  least to stake out a few claims in the  mountain of gold which is thought to  enrich all the north.  Miss Cashman went to the Cassiar .  district with 200 miners from the Corn-  stock, Nevada, in 1897, at the time of  the gold excitement, being the only  woman in the party. At that time she  was only 16, but as subsequent events  proved, full of courage . and strength.  For a number of years she remained  in t e country, mining and conducting  a mercantile business, and then came  out to Victoria with a stake which put  many of her hardier companions to  the blush. Since then she, has been  engaged in mining in California, Utah,  Colorado, Nevada and Mexico and at  the present time holds claims in most  of those states.' .  EXTRA   PROVINCIAL    COMPANIES.  There are 150 of  Them    Registered    in  British Columbia.  By an inspection of the B. C. Gazette  files to date, it is noted that there are  150 extra provincial companies so far  registered in British Columbia. They  are from the United States, England'  South Africa, Australia and outside  provinces of Canada.  I ' ���������'.���������',���������,' .'.:���������'  :��������� ..'''.' ',..','' , .  -# .'

SATURDAY, MARCH 12, 1898.  W  The lining Review  SANDON,,BRITISH COLUMBIA, :  SATURDAY...!........MARCH 12, 1898.  SUBSCRIPTION  $2.00 PER YeAK    ,  Strictly in Advnaok  OUR DELEGATION.  We understand the delegation who  have gone to Victoria will among other  matters make a strong card out' of  the statistics we published in burissvie  o'f:the 22nd January. These 'figures  are in themselves . proof this .. section  has never had justice from the Local  Government. Last year Sandon mines  did about one-fourth ot the shippihu  Of the whole Kootenay country, and  as the Kootenay revenues are acknowledged to be one-third of those of the  whole proy ince, Saiidoii must have contributed from a mining point of  . view at'least one-twelfth of the revenues' of the country; and yet we have  not a local government office of ,any  " kind, not even a police court office o<*  a record office. '.,.:'  We have not yet thq government's  published records for 1897, as they are  not yet issued; but by the report of the  Minister of Mines for 189b*,, we seif n<.  , less than 37'crown grants for"' mineral  claims were issued in Sandon's surroundings ;in"lS96 paying the government for some 1,110 acres of otherwise valueless land, i  How that we have assumed our majority and taken on incorporation, we  do not expect the government to run  the machinery internally .for us as  Rossland expects���������-we do not expect,  grants'for fire protection, side walks,  or streets, but there are many other  concessions that should be made as pur  natural clue. In the first, place there  will be a refund of licenses,' poll taxes,  realty taxes, etc.;; that requires no explanation. Then should follow that  appropriation of $800 once made for  a court house. Once received the  council should,.;supplement, the sum  and erect a decent city hall and lockup.     -,������������������.' '.'������������������ '.-���������';.-..:.'������������������ '  Next should follow a record office  We do not advocate the removal of the  office from JNew Denver; that Is a matter of expediency for the government  ." alone to consider. . We know from our  mineral surroundings, the wants of the  mining community and the contri-  . butions of the district; to the provincial treasury, we are entitled to one,  and Aur.clainiB are all. we need to-press  If, for instance, Silverton was added to  Slocan City, as it might easily be, then  seven-eights of the : entries' at New  Denver would.be from sections more'  nearlylpeated t������ Sandon." Taking in  the district trom the summits south of  of the Queen Bess, Ivanhoe, the Adams  and the Canadian groups, crossing the  summit of the east hill to" the divide,  north of the R,eco,Ajax, Payne, Lucky  Jim and other Bear Lake properties,  thence west of Three Forks and around  to the point of starting, and we include a mineral belt, acknowledged by  all whose opinions'are worth considering to be the wealthiest in the known  world, and it all centres in the valley  at. Sandon. All natural and easy trails  converge here. The two railways centre  here as well,as all the prominent commercial interests. This is then the  mineral, commercial and business  centre for that whole tract of mineral  area ; and any conventional effort tr>  carry any of the institutions for property working the -district outside, is  only forcing water up hill, defeating  the aims'of nature.  With a railway from Slocan City to  Nelson, nothing is more natural than  for the court and commercial interests  of that district to go Nelson wards, and  with two railways centreing here, the  rest ef the country around including  Cody, Whitewater, Three Forks and  Rosebery centres in Sandonfor judicial  and commercial purposes.' Then why  not drift with nature and create Sandon a judicial centre- with a record  office and a court house? An hospital  would also he of great, convenience.  We have, when all the mines'are" in  Operation,in reasonable weather .nearly  1,500 men at work in the country encircled by summits to which we have  alluded, with all the trails 'and wagon  roadH coming this way, creating San  don a centre for medical aid as well as  other purposes. If other conditions  are suitable the hospitals should be  where the miners are,when sickness or  injuries overtake them.  Sa-ndon is not looking for either  favors or silver spoon feeding, nothing  but abstract justice, taking our contributions to the^treasury, our natural  surroundings and the convenience of  miners and mining interests, into  account, which are the considerations  that o ight to promp any administration in its every day, actions.    '  With operations our mines commenced, we want wagon roads to Cody,  Three Forks and Whitewater, as business points, and to't.he leading mining  centres . on the surrounding hilla���������  every one of which shortly after opened  would make ample compensation to  the governmer t for 'reasonable assistance. We are confident our del gates  will press every one of these points on  the attention of the government, but  should they overlook any of them, it  is none the less the duty of the government to give all careful attention.  DUTIES.  D It is amu:l.ig to see the wriggling of  straight party papers; in their efturts to  protection and , free trade and  define: trade policies; The fact of the  matter is there is no wholly Free  Trade government under the sun, nor  can there.be while revenues to support governments are raised'by the  taxation of imports.' The duties on  printing papers average how, perhaps,  30 per cent, all around,; arid this may  be .considered protective. If ^they  were reduced to 10 per, cent, they  would be as much protective to that  extent as they'are now at 30 per cent.,  the difference would be in the extent  and hot in the principle. Every cent  of duty levied on an import is protective to the home industry, "whether  levied for the purpose of protection or  for revenue merely. , ���������  When,'however, we are speaking oi  the question from a B. C. point of  view, it is only right to enquire why the  government are not as solicitous for  the welfare of our industries as they  are for those of the other provinces.  The cotton, woolen and other manufactures of Ontario-have had the ear, of  all governments since the inception of  their industries. . The , agricujtuists  of Manitoba and thc Territories have  always had a measure of consideration  from the governments, and so on of  the other provinces until we come to  the mining industries of this, and there  the line appears to be drawn.  I From the effort the G. P.:R. is putting forward to build smelters, it is  evidently their intention to reduce  freights so that low grade ores can be  turned to good account in the country.  Assistance from the.government in the  shape of duties on import metals,  would help to settle the question. A-  vigorous effort is to be made to increase our exports of pulp and paper  to Great Britain, so we may supply her  instead of allowing the Americans' to  do it. Then why riot extend the principle to the. mining industry of this  country ? We have plenty of native  lead < and similar metals to supply not  only homedemands, but Great Britain's demand and that of other countries as well, that the Americans are  now supplying, and. to some extent at  least from Canadian ores. This  should not be the case, and would not  be if an import duty was applied until  smelters and refineries were constructed and placed on a proper footing.  In addition to giving an irijpetus to  the mining interest of the country, it  would give employment to a great  many, operatives that are now employed across the lines, and building  up cities over there. This is a matter  Mr. Bostock should unceasingly force  on the attention of the government.  His constituents are more interested in  this matter than any other people���������in  fact it is a vital matter with them, and  he is supposed to be working for them  rather than any special principle of  trade.  When the Vancouver World does  go in for Gritism, it fairly out-Horods  Herod. In speaking of the Ontario  elections, it says :  To say that the/Opposition did not  make a splendid.fight were to blind  one's eyes to the facts as they appear  in cold typs, and it is exceedingly difficult to understand why they came so  near winning. Not a charge that was  made by them possessed the least  semblance of truth ; every calumny uttered was effectively denied.  Strange, is it not, that the people of  the most intelligent province in Confederation should act that way?���������Virtually set to work and turn out. a government against whom an accusation  of any shade could not be fastened,  and give their peaces to liars, utterers  of calumnies, etc. But then the Vancouver World understands it all, and  no one else should ever d re aro of  thinking for himself.  Touching the tirade of personal  abuse of the editor of this paper in the  Inst issue of the wasp up the gulch, we  have only to sat' we are disposed to  leave him the field in that channel.  When there are principles involved in  any controversy, we are disposed to  discuss them while discussion is in the  public service. As to the charge that  the communication that appeared in  these columns two weeks ago was prepared in this office, we have only to  say that it is wholly untrue. The  manuscript is still in the office, and if  the writer will only call around we  will show it to him and convince him  that he cannot believe a word he; says  himself; but we take it this will be no  news to him.

Nevertheless  the wild stories were seut all over the  country, and I have even seen cabled  dispatches which wore priuted about  cheui-'iu one or two .journals of.London  and Paris. And naturally, as you can  understand, all this was very disagree-'  able. .  Well, to begin with, I did think a  great'deal of Patience���������there's no use  iu denj'ing faots���������and I had been half,  in love with her from boyhood. During  the last year I bad been with her more  than usual, seeing her at home or'on'  the links of the Country club aud, ot  various teas and club fetes.  And by sheer accident; I assure  yon,  I  speut: the summer .011   tho short's  of  Lake  Chainplaiu,   making studies "for  two or three rather ambitious paintings,  to be finished wheu cold weather came,  and Patienco was  there, too, with  her  deep   brown  eyes'and, wavy  hair and  superb  presence.   I know, this . sou nils  like extravagant ciesoiipsio'u, hue  ic   is  ��������� accurace,   fur ���������Patienco'  is one   of   tha.

She was visiting a  cousiu at  Port  Kent���������a  brunette  with red   lipii-  and white teeth and   the very uii'iciiief  dancing   in   her   eyes~-aud   uuturally. ���������  Miss Elaim was  interested, iu  hc-!piii:������  along a love alfair-���������for where is tho girl  who wouldn't be?  I don't know how it happened, but  in some, way, old Moneybags. Yalnik  heard pjt .tho situation and appeared'  suddenly'one gyopiiig at tlie 'rosidouce  of Miss Elaini's parents, At the time  hig traiu from .New York arrived Patience and I .wore stroil-iug. along the  shoro of ChauiijittiB in the .inooulighti  I'll coufess, aud when wti j'fitunitd to  the Elaim home, some time iittui' 10  o'clock, we found : the callous hutirted  old fellow tramping up nnd down the  .veranda, emokjug furiously aud suvk-  ing his. white wiijsi?er������ iu a -uuiiuer  that boded no good for ut������.  He never spoke to me, never ad::-::-.vl.-  edged my presL-uce - by .so inutii v--; a  stare.

But I was at the statiou, and us  the train pulled outthodeur girl e:'J!-I:  "Goodby, Fred! Don't worry., it'll  all right."  Aud then hor father slaimppd the  window pud scowled as if he woe id  like to bito mo iu half.  During the ensuing si* jnouilis I  worked as hard 'as I could, but-'fiovcv.  did I write to Patience, :ilthough I ;;i.::t  messages to her iu Mariou lijaiu-'s letters.and heard from her uo-.v and thou  through tho same medium,' so I wissn't  really out oil, you see. I camo batk to  town ahput the middle.of Septetnber,  *nd a week later Mis? Elaim anived at  the Yelnik home in Now Jerstjy (;*��������� make  a visit. But, of course old Money bugs  wouldn't allow me to soo Patience, and  naturally I hud too much t-euso to.call,  but the deprivation was hard in more  ways than oue, as you ���������will umlor.staiKl  presently.  A month draggod by, and the r.imo  was approaching for Marion's visit to  be concluded, wheu one Saturday u'.t'.r-  noon I weut aboard a ferryboat lui.:;d  lor Jersey City, whither I was to l-;ko :;  traiu f or the tow*! where 'Patienco lived,  and 011 the bout, for the ��������� firt't thi'.e iu  three months, I mot Mr. Yei.ink.

"I'mweii.".  ''HiiVbn't' seen yon hitply out at the  hcusu," he contimr.t1. siir-'iiKtically.  "No, aud you're ������������������01 likely to," I replied, with oui;.hi-..-.is, Hew .long this,  conversation ���������uij-hc havo ooniinued I  don't, know, but at il:..t- moment we  passed in mi cist ream elcao by a ferryboat steamiug from Jersey City to Now-  York, aud one of thc passougers ou it,  a girl we both knew, waved her baud  to me, and I called out:  "Wait there! I'll he over at once."  Then the boats had swept by each  other, and I turned to look at Mr. Yel-  *jik. He was almost livid with rage,  and he trepablecLoB with, a, chill.    .  ,      . ...-���������,.~..;-.-T=rf-.-jT--3a'a  neavens, I'll jnake you pay for thla 1  Buppbse yoa had arranged an elopement," he exclaimed, getting more and  more excited. And he didn't beoome  calm when I told him his surmise was  true.  There were few passengers aboard,  and Patience's father had the sense to  speak in low tones to avoid a scene, but  it; waB awful the way he swore he  would put -me��������� in.iprison for life and  shoot me dead if I ever so.ruuch as darod  to look at his daughter again. Of course  he didu't get off the boat at, Jersey Oity.  He staid' close tome, and of couriso I  ca:ne back to New York ' to , maofc tho  r.Bti'r girl. But alas aud alack! When  t-ve'reached the middle of the river agaiu  '.ui'ii'v the other boat; bound this  -..' for Jersey Oity, old YeluiL* fairly  jji -i-il-ler! for ,ioy aud shouted:  :?."���������"U.iiei'i?-she is!

Fifteen minutes, elapsed before;  our boat loft the New' York ferry slip,  aud during that time Mr, Yelnik  ''chuckled' aud slapped his knees aud  acted like a wild 'lunatic,.he, was so  overjoyed. ,.  "Yes, 'wait for me in Jersey City 1! "  he uiiiuiukod. "Oh, sho'll wait, don't,  you bo afraid; she'll wait, but. forme  aud not for you, and lot me toll you  0110 thing, sir���������as soon as I can got a  warrant you'll be looked up, and, by  heavens, I'll see you iu Sing Siug before I'm doue with you 1" ,  He weut on in this fashion till we  1 orossed the North river again and had  oooiuo to a dead stop about 100 feet from  the Jersey Oity ferryslip, blocked by a  fleot of caiiulboat's that wore, lazily  crawling up , the Btream against the  tide! I looked aoross them to the boat'  sho had oonie over on. It was blocked  inside of the slip, and, horror of horrors, there she stood ou tho deck ready  to.cross the river' once inore, having  totally misunderstood the message I  shouted.

Like a fia.sh ' I saw a  r chance to esuapo arid called to-tiie Tiiiot  of the tug:       -  "Wauta job?"      ,   ,".       .,  ,  "That's my watermelon," he replied.  Iustautly I cleared our rail and limped to the tow bout, shouting:  : '; "Sheer off, quickl Sheer offlVv    ;  ���������    The pilot rang  his bella, the  propeller whirled" viciously, aud we. shot !;r '.���������::���������  ward from the ferryboat as Mr. Ycihik  rushed to its rail and swore at us.  '���������'.- "Skim  around , that fleet, quick,1'  I  oalled, hurrying  up to tho  pilot house  and pulling a $20 bill out of my pocket.  "Now make for  that boat iu' the slip  and  stand by till  I get the young lady  there,'waiting for me."  '���������'   " You bet I will," the pilot responded heartily.  "Bully for you, young feller.  I aiu't beeu married long myself."  In . less tiino almost thuu it takes to  tell it we h*ad opine alouRside tho other  ferryboat, and the dear girl was aboard  ���������with me,, aud we were speeding down  toward tho bay. *>' When we were quite  'Q.u't p'f reach, the pilot asked:     '  "Npyv whore ,do'you waut to go?'.'  ��������� ''Oh, anywhere in New Jersey, so'we  can  be married without stopping for a  license���������say to Atlantic  Highlands or  Long Branch or anywhere.

The shortage of the late city clerk of  Nelso.. was $600, and as he gave no  bonds to the council, the- mayor had to  make upthe inciiiey.  At a meeting oi" the fire brigade, on  Thursdav evening it was decided to  give a dance oh Easter Monday, April  11th., in Virginia Hall.  A. Harrison, J. Brown and Baptiste  Boherne were each mulcthed in ���������35.0,0  and costs in the police court, tho .-past  week for indecent exposure.  If any city reader of.

R tlie last  tivo months for the Klondyke, and  what they, \vill find -to do when they  get there is the question.  A few of the "juvenile boys!'', of the  city gave ,i party at ."Mrs. Crawiorcl's,  Sunnyside, Monday evening, and very  gallantly escortel their beet girls home  after an enjoyable evening.  It was "Ti>e wind that shakes the  Barley," (in Thursday night last. The  oldest inhabitant says he never saw  the like of it before here.' It soundeci  like a regular prairie roarer.  The Rossland Miner names two  claims offered at "a sacrifice".with a  surface assay of $4." We cannot see.  where the sacrifice comes in il the  owner gets one cent for 1,000 shares.  Aa we are'going to press,the bachelors of the Sandon-club have their  most fashionable assembly under full  swing in the Virginia hall. It will be  borne in min;l we print every Friday  night.  It is said there will be 810,000,000 in  gold taken out of the; Klondyke the  coming season, and that 50,000 people  will go in.

The mining interests of the Slocan in  particular call loudly, for it.  The Kaslo curlers appear anxious to  have a whack at tho Sandonites for th<  Bostock trophy. To do it they will  have to come here, and if the weather  only keeps a little cool anopportunitj  may yet turn up before the winter is  out.  Pearson & Pearson are going to open  their music hall on Monday, evening  by a mixec theatrical and musical performance, which their hand-bills say  willbevery fine. The admission fee  is from 10 cents up, according to seat  chosen.  Kaslo must be a great place according to some of its newspapers. In  speaking of a necessity for a- county  court there, the B. C. News says "hall  the business originates, here." According to this, it is not the most de:  sirable place in the world to have  creditors.  The police officers have set themselves against the use of profane language and other nuisances on tlie  streets, and are going to punish .all  offenders to the fullest extent. In  future, it will be better for all who  want to swear, except in the courts, or  commit nuisances of any kind, to first  wander off into the bush or up into  some of the summits of perpetual  snow. ...  Dr. Cartwright, dentist, billed the  town and visited most bouses to an  nounce his presence for the practise of,  dentistry. He intended to leave on  the 9th., He put a five-line advertisement in The Kevif.w, and he says ..it-  brought him many times more patients  than all his billing. He has now to  remain at the Balmoral for several  days to attend, to the patients he got  through advertising in The Review.  It always pays.  We give place to a communication  from "Awake" in another column, not  because we endorse it, but merely to  give every man who writes in proper  . language si chance to express himself  on all matters that interest the people.  At the same time he gives some good  suggestions. The article only suggests  another argument for a Board of Trade,  as all these matters could bo taken up  by such an organization and dealt with  in a practical manner.  The Ilev. Jas. Woodaworth, general  "superintendent of Methodist missions,  resident at Brandon, Man., delivered a  very interesting and instructive address on mission work throughout his  field including the far north regions ol  Alaska, in the Methodist church Wednesday evening. The congregation  was not very, large, no doubt owing to  the fact that none save church announcements were given, and, perhaps,  a little to the feeling that Sandon, as  yet, should be rather a receiver from  than a giver to mission funds. However, as the Rev. gentleman is an able  speaker, it may be said those present  received more than they gave. The  choir assisted in the service and sang  an anthem.
