Array ^y^^i  VOL. 5.-NO. 41.  SANDON, B.C., SATURDAY, MARCH 29, 1902.-  $2.00 PER YEAR.  Tlie Rambler's New Strike.  Two  Hundred and Fifty Ounce Ore  on 800 Foot Level.  A rich strike was made in the 800-foot  level of the Rambler-Cariboo mine in  Mc.Giiigan basin la.st week, when the  vein \\us broken into. At this point,  the ore .struck was four and one-half  feet in width ami the samples taken  assayed 250 ounces to the ton. For  some time the new double compartment  working shaft has been approaching I  t he 800-foot level, having left the ore)  body which took a dip above. On I  reaching the level in question a crosscut was started and the ore was picked ;  up as stated. This gives the Rambler  ore in every level of the mine, and the  repeated demonstrations of the fact,  that the ore body extends downward  without losing iu value, in fact with increasing valne������. is of paraniountinterest  and importance lo the '"'property' itself  and in almost the same degree to the  district in which the Rambler is lwcated.  The concentrator at the Ramblei will  be in operation in about two weeks time  when the water supply will he greatly  increased by the spring thaws.  Skating is "going np the spoilt" these  day.-*.

Bourne Bros, have settled with their  creditors tit (!0 cents on the dollar.  Many people were sorry to hear of their  reverses.  Mr. Oscar White returned from a visit  to Spokane on Thursday, but he does  not know when tlie Star will resume  operations.  The Sandon Wine & Liquor House  has dispensed with the services of J eh"  Main, and Squire Lovatt says he should  have done it months ago.  A shooting scrape took place in the  tenderloin district of Blairmoie on Friday last, by which one man lost an ear  and another --ot a dose of lead in the  arm.   No one was seriously hurt.  A tramp applied to a Boston women  the other day for something t^ eat. and  was asked how a chop would suit him.  He studied a moment, and then looked  up seriouly.

Mr. Pratt says there is nothing to note  at the L'ist Chance this week.. Things  are runninu: along as usual.  From'The' way our school children,  boys and girls, ciimb the hills around  the school house they ought soon be all  expert prospectors.  Mr. Dewar, who used to live at the  Payne, but now at Three Forks,: lost a  child, four years old, on Sunday.' Its  ailment began with the .-whooping cough'  which brought on a complication with  fatal results.  The ladies of the Methodist church  will hold a saleof needle work in tin*  basement of the church on Easter Monday at:} p. m. A supper will be served  from 5:30 p. in. to 8 p. in. Admission  50 cents. Donations of any kind will  be accepted bv the ladies  Mr. N. .T. Cavanaugh returned on  Tuesday from a visit to the old ho.m.p-  stead in Michigan. While there bin  parent-p celebrated their golden wedding.  He. feels none the worse for his tup to  the country of heavy winds and storms.  We believe it is now definitely settled  that the Ashnola and the Similkameen  Valley Coal Companies are tobeamalga-  mated. If this is done on a proper basis  it will be best for all, as it will  materiallv reduce the cost of operations  for the same results. D. R. Young  also claims to have floated n scheme lor  the erection of a smelter at Ashnola. ,  "I think," said Mr. Dooloy, "I  wouldn't like to bean idiioi, aflher all.  I sometimes wonder they don't come  out with a line printed acrost th' lirst  page: 'Wedon't know annythingabout  it an'we don't care, an' what business  iv ye'ers is it anyhow?' " I shud think  th' wurruk wild kill tliini," said Mr.  Hennessy, sadly. "It does." said Mr.  Donley. "Manny gr-reat iditors is  dead." "  The machine that ran the last sehoo  election and knew they were doing right,  too, now find themselves in the soup,  that they simply did not know what  they were doing, as the government has  called a new election, with Mr. Huston  returning officer. Mr. Huston announces that any man qualified to vote  at a municipal election is eligible for  trustee which is not the case. A man  may vote at a municipal election and  not be a resident, while no man can be  elected a trustee who is a non-resident.  Mr. Macdonald,of flieltiiperial Bank,  Ferguson, and bride, sister of J. VI.  Cameron, this city, was in town on  Monday.  Lowery writes a paragraph on "a  bumblebee." He must have a bee in  his bonnet, or he would spell the word  differently.  The Silversmith sent out one car of  high grade ore on Saturday, the Reco  another, and the Wonderful two to the  Nelson smelter.  G. VV." Gniniiielt -is "earning a good  reputation as an optician'now from the  fact he does business in the surrounding  towns when, he-visits theni.  We would strongly urge the townspeople to he very guarded in the smelter  proposal. Give liberally when safe;  but be safe before giving anything.    ���������  Tlie Cosgrove company -will appear  here the latter part of next week to fulfill their previously announced engagement for a concert and grand ball.  .1. M. Winter has commenced suit  against the K.'& 8. Ry. to recover' $10,  000 damages for injuries his wife received in a runaway and smash-up of  the passenger car last fall. We belk-ve  the company made an offer "that was  refused.  The Independent Order of Odd Fellows  are advertising a grand anniversary bull  for Friday evening, March 25th. A  cordial invitation is extended to every  one. Every effort will be made to make  this affair a success.  The four-inch plank the city are  putting in the Hume will be an improve-  ment.on the old bottom, but if the  timbers were six inches, it would still  be better. Some construction ought to  be devised to catch the boulders at the  head of the flume.  The Hillside at Whitewater owns  four properties, crown granted and  unencumbered. There are 708,783  shares of treasury stock at, 5, cents a  share. The company want io sell a  portion of the stock lor development  purposes.  The public will one and all regret to  learn that Mr. David Heap, a few  months ago book-keeper at the Last,  Chance mine, is dead. He had been  ailing about a year, and left, here last  fall for California hoping to secure a recovery that never came.  The last statement of the Goodenough  mine shows it shipped $19,050 worth of  ore the past year and paid dividends  amouting to $13,188. The report further  says the lead in the shipments the past  year was insufficient lo pay the cost of  mining, so the silver value had to be  drawn on to mine the lead. This led to  the late closing .down. Another meeting will be held on the 8th of April.  Another public meeting was held in  the city hall Thesday, with Mr. Grim-  niett'in the chair and Mr. Sandilands as  secretary, at which Mr. Ryan stated he  was not here to.promise aeither smelter  or freight and treatment rates to any  place. He was merely to look over several fields, to see their advantages and  disadvantages,to learn the inducements  the people would hold out and reportall  the circumstances to his principals.  Freight and treatment in any event were  governed by a complexity of conditions  ���������cost of fuel and fluxes, freights &e.  His position was, however, merel}'1 one  of investigation. He found Sandon with  its advantages as well as having disadvantages. Kalso was in the same list;  but it offered $50,000 as a bonus, which  would have an amount of weight with  his principals. However, when he  natbered all the facts he would report,  and believed action would then be taken.  Kven.if Kaslo secured a smelter, with  Sainton's mineral surroundings, there  was no reason why one should not be  built here and pay also. The results  would, however, have to be determined  by his principals after they fully weighed  all the circumstances. Messrs. Geo.  Huston,.John Buckley, J. Vallance, J.  R. Cameion and C^ Cliffe made some  remarks, after which a resolution sub-  mil ted by Mr. Cliffe calling a public  meetinur for Tuesday evening of- the  business men, tax payers ami mineown-  ers in the city hall, to consider all the  circumstances leading up to the- best  offer the place could make, was carried  unanimously.  The ladies of the Presbyterian church  at Whitewater will give, a free concert  on Monday evening to the miners there,  as a mark of appreciation for tendering  the congregation the use of their hall  gratis to hold services,  There will be a concert under the  auspices of the Sandon Kink Co. on  Satmday, April 5th. Tickets $1.00 and  75c. The Cosgrove Orchestra will  render the programme. On Monday,  April 7th, a dance will also he given  with Cosgroves seven-piece orchestra.  Tickets $2.50, including supper.

SATURDAY,  MARCH 2i),  1902.  MINING.  The Kaslo Board  of Trade is taking  the right stand in protesting against the  present mineral tax and  increasing increasing recording fees.    It would  puzzle the brain of the very elect, to see how  any sensible  body  in the country can  take any other view  of  the matter.   It  is not worth taking the  trouble to see  whether or not  the  mines are paying  their equitable share of taxation.   That  is   not   the   question.    Every sensible  man    knows   that    neither  ' farming,  lumbering,   nor  any  other industry in  the country,  barring the fisheries,  can  make any headway in British Columbia  unless   mining    becomes    prosperous.  When, then, tins is known to every one,  ��������� why   is  not  the  best effort of  all put  forward  to make  it  prosperous?   The.  question is not what should  and  what  should not the mines contribute to the  revenue  in  tho  way of taxation, "but  w hat conditions in the country will lead  to tho largest mineral output   possible?  It is to solve this problem thai-attention  should be turned. When, inafewyears  thereafter, .our-mines all  become shippers and dividend payers, thequestionof  taxation may be properly considered.  Let us look into this matter more  fully, for the year ending 30th of June  last, the tnineral tax collected in the  country was but $95,483, and but $s)2,-  422 on personal property. No.w, will  any man with an ounce of judgment say  that in a whole province like B. 0. this  amount is a fair sum for person;. 1  property to pay, while, it is alleged the  country is in need of money? In the  average city of the east under municipal  collection, two per cent is a ��������� usual rate  for personal property to' pay, and but  $4,011,100 of an assessment would be required at that rate to realize the government's total collection. We venture  the opinion that a fair assessment would  lind the personal property of either  Victoria or Vancouver footing up  to   more   than   this sum.  Revenue the government must  have, then why not get it from a fair  assessment of realty and -personalty of  ihe country, that is from the masses  instead of ruining the country and all  the interests that are in it in a vain  attempt to collect it from a few mines  that are struggling to make headway  against the adverse circumstances known  lo exist���������high duties on machinery and  supplies, low prices of ores, high wages,  high    smelter    and    It.'   R.    charges,  No, if our legislature cottid only for  once look the interests of the country  straight in the face, they would  wipe out altogether, the mineral tax,  lower licenses and record fees, leave  freedom between employes ami employers, give free timber for mining,do their  h .-it iu reduce dinelterand I!. VI. charges  CONSUMPTION  Right food���������right medicine  ���������right time���������these three  things are of tlie utmost importance to the consumptive.  Right food and right medicine  ���������these are contained in Scott's  Emulsion of pure cod-liver oil.  Right time is at first sign of  disease.   Right time is now.  Scott's Emulsion always  helps, ofien cures. Ordinary  food helps feed. Fresh air  helps cure. Scott's Emulsion  dees both.    Begin early.  MV11 sent! you a little lo try, if you like.  SCOTT   & 'BOWNE,      Chemists, Toronto.  for some years till the industry was well  on its feet. What would any business  man care if he paid twe or three times  the taxes he does to the government, if  he only had a prosperous business  through active operation of the mines.  This is the key to the whole situation,  as it is in any country where there is  bur one leading industry���������encourage  that every way possible, and prosperity  in all other lines follows as certain as  the sun rises and sets daily.  Manitoba is a wheat-growingcountry,  and if thagoverninontand the politicians  of that province were so shortsighted a������  to lie awake nights to see what tax they  co.nl impose on the crops of every vear,  and how they could tinker with the  hours of labor to secure voles, it would  be but a short time before tliere would be  a rebellion in the country and the  business people would be the first to  take up arms. Then .what, are our  merchants, saloonmen, farmers, lumber  men and merchants doing���������our Boards  of Trade, in a word, and all in sympathy  with them, that they do not rise in a  body and insist on the immediate removal of all the obstructions in the way  of active mining, that business of all  classes may experience the revival for  which the entire population of tho  country is ,so ceaselessly loi king.  '$  " What is it ?" asks the mother as she  notices the smooth skin of her child  marred by a red or pimply eruption. It  is impure blood, and the child needs at  once    to    begin  the   use   of   Dr.  Pierce's   Golden  Medical   Discovery, the best and  surest  remedy  for   impurity  of  the   blood.     It  entirely eradicates the poisons  w h i c h   corrupt  the   blood   and  cause disease.   It  cures   scrofula,  boils, . pimples,  eczema,    salt-  rheum and other  eruptive diseases  which are the direct result of impure blood.     It  enriches as well  a������   purifies   the  blood.  "Dr. Pierce's medicine has  not only benefited m������ greatly, but it has done wonders' for  my   two  sons,"  writes Mrs.   M.   Ilartrick,   ot  Demster, Oswego Co., N. V. "Iloth had scrofula.  I have lost two daughters in less than five years  with consumption and scrofula.   My eldest son  was taken two or three years ago with hemorrhage from the lungs.   It troubled him for over  a year.   He took  Dr. Pierce's Golden  Medical  Discovery, and has not had a hemorrhage in  over a year.   My younger sou  had scrofulous  sores on his neck; had two lanced, but has not  had any since he commenced to take your uied-���������  iciue."  Accept no substitute for ������ Golden Medical Discovery." There is nothing "just  as good" for diseases of the stomach,  blood and lungs.  A iooS page book, free for the asking.

No one can blame Kaslo  lor   offering  $50,001) for a   smelter   if   ii   wants   to,  though it will be a heavy ;burden   with  its present debt.    What, Sandon has to  do is look out for itself only.    Our debt  now is light,if the place was progressive  and growing.    We are convinced  there  is ore enough available around Sandon,  at but a triflng erst for,haulage, to keep  a 100 ton smelter   steadily   going,   and  this would double our population  within a year after it, started.      Wilh   1.000  of a population a bonus,or stock indebt.-  ness I'm-a smelter, of  $25,000  over   20  years would mean about $2.50 a year in  interest and sinking fund for every sou)  of the population   to  handle,   probably  $10 a year for every substantial citizen.  No what does that amount to,if business  by it  becomes good. and   steady.    [������As  things are at present,it is a case of clear  out to many,or make one effort to better  our condition.    Some oppose bonus "on \  principle-;" but where is  i.be  use   haggling over principle when it comes  to a  question of existence.    We believe it, is  the duty of the place to secure-.legislation to enable as to do it, and take slock  in the proposed smelter to one quarter  of its cost, if necessary, and  that in   so  doing we, will be much ahead financially  in the end.

With  this principle embodied in all  our law,  if a cleric stole a depositor's money from  a hank, the depositor would be without  recourse except, by  following  Ihe clerk  alone; railways and  all otter corporations   would     absolved    from    consequences   through   the   carelessness   of  ofemplovcs,   and  so on   to  the end of  the   chapter.      Injured   parties   would  have   no   grounds  for actions  against  corporations or  principals;   their only  recourse   would   be   against  worthless  . employes,   and   this   would   of   course  intensify dangers   to   life,    limb   and  property,  as   employers  need car*'  but  little for the reliability and character of  their   servants.       Would   not   British  Columbia   then   be, a paradise  for tho  traveller, the tourist, the , investor and  the  man  of entei prise?    With  such a  law unions  would   be certain   to  place  in the front men   the least   responsible  financially,  and  the most reckless   in  their aggression,   that   the most satisfaction, in times of strikes and   other  troubles, might   be  got with  the  least  risk of legal consequences.    TIip country  wbald then-  become a happy   hunting  ground for the pirate, the dare devil and  the  'murderer, canital  and   enterprise  would be driven  from  the  land,  as no  one would feel safe in investing a dollar  in anything.    Cur ties, would get all the  votes and he would at once he crowned  ''King of the Cannibal Islands."   What  more could the people desire?   It is the  presence of   irresponsible   cranks  like  Curtiss in any country that is the cause  of half its woes.   There are aiiiongt the  laboring  and   the   mechanical classes,  inen of as level heads and  sound judgment as are to  be found in any other  walk   of life,   and   we   know   none of  them    in    li. C.     desire    such   legislation  as   this���������they   feel  the greatest  safety when organizations of all  classes  are   held   responsible   for   their    own  encouragements,  for they know  there  can be no safety   when   conditions are  otherwise.  There are in all walks of life men Who  have a deep feeling for the interests of  the working classes, for they know when  as it can he by legislation, all is done  for labor that can he done���������it, must take  its own chances for the rest. Nogovcrn-  inent will dare to hol.-ter up one set of  capital against another in the same line  of enterprise, and for ihe same n iison  governments are trampling on the prospects of their own country that try by  arlilicial means to boNter up labor by  special enactments. Create as much  work ah the n-.-ouue.-, and needs  of tho country will allow, and then  the labor will get till he is worth to  the employer.
