SANDON, B. 0., .SATURDAY, MAY 10, 1002.  $2.00 PEE YEAR.  a Disastrous, Slide.  Swept Power's Camp Out of Existence  Killing One Man and Injuring  Two Others.  A snowslide of large proportions and  one of the largest in the history of the  camp came crashing down the mountain  aide Thursday morning, in the Washington basin, at Powers'camp about a;  mile below the Rambler mine causing  the instant death of "Win. Douglas injuring John Powers, jr., and S. McDonald, and spreading general destruction  in its downward course. The recovery  ' of the two injured men is expected,as it  is thought their injuries   are   not   very  serious; they were taken to Kaslo on the  1' >  train. The body of Douglas was brought  in on a hand car to Sandon for burial.  The slide apparently was no-t quite  contented with the foregoing havoc; but  completely carried away Powers' camp  comprising four stables, storeand shacks  also killing seventeen head of pack  horses and mules and a large number of  hogs. In fact there remains not a vestige of anything to mark the place  where once stood the cainp but one  solitary^.building overlooked by this  rampant avalanche of snow and timbers.  If the slide had overtaken the camp  during the night when the entire people of the place were peacefully slumbering there would have been a graver  story to relate. As it luckily transpired  -nearly all the men were away at various  occupations.  It appears as nearly as we can gather  Wm. Douglas at the time of the ead occurrence was sliocing a horse, when he  was told by someone of the'comingdan-  ger. Instantly he stopped work and  ran for dead life, but without avail as  the slide proved to be speeder than himself. To reach a place of safety he  had to make a long run as the slide  extended in width over 500 feet;  he just missed the desired end by about  forty feet. The other two were carried  down with Douglas but in some way or  other miraculously escaped a similar  fate.  A great deal of credit is due to parties  in the neighborhood who set to work immediately, and recovered the imbedded  . men at, the peril of their own lives, as  they were in constant danger of other  slides following in the wake of this one.  Town Jottings.  H. Giegerich unloaded a car of St.  Charles cream yesterday.  P. Richardson, cutter for P. Burns &  Co. has gone off for a holiday, not feeling well. -  Geo. Ranson, - F. L. Christie, P. M.  .Hayes were in Nelson this week attending the assizes.  The Noble Five slide put in its usual  appearance on Monday; .but this time  it gave no offence to anyone.  Is it not about time the council were  taking the necessary steps to fill the  vancies on the council board?  P. Burns & Co. are now slaughtering  in the city, so the people will get a  fresher article in meat than  heretofore,  Mr. and Mrs. 'Pyphers will not return  to the city as was intend, but will reside in Portland, where Mr, Pyphers  will go into business.  The curlers held a meeting last evening in the city hall to close up the past  wintei's business and prepare plans for  next season's work.  Byron White is expected here on the  the 15th, and there ��������� may he some  news from the Slocan Star after his  visit, but there is nonenow.  The vacant lot next Nash's hardware  ptove has"Seen cleaned up for aping-  pong ground. We judpre by this that a  lawn tennis club will be organised  shortly.  M. Ginfzburcpr, manager of the  Monitor was in the city- Monday, on  his way to Vancouver for a stav of three  week?. Pie says there is nothing hew  particularly at the Monitor.  At a meeting r>f the firemen in the  city hall on Tuesday evening last, E.  M. Sandilands and C. Walmsley were  were appointed captains. The captains  are to arrange practices as they think  best.  Tt is a question whether or not the  city ever got tlie right from the government to change the course of the flume,  or whether the ritrht to flume the creek  has been given to anyone but the  Sandon Water & Light Co., though  several have the right to use water from  the creek bv flume or otherwise.  P. Murphy has taken over the Filbert  restaurant.  The Kootenay hotel is getting a new  coat of paint.  John    Eccles,    of  Kaslo,    gets  months' gaol for indecent assault.  six  The Rev. Mr. Robb and bride arrived  in the city on Saturday evening last.  J. Burton 'and J. Sheridan left for  Fernie on Monday, expecting to find  work there.  Tlie Pheomx Pioneer wants to buy  some old rags. Why don't Bro. Wilcox  take his shirt.'  Gassie Thompson and Dan Dune left  on .an' exploiting 'trip in the north  country on Tuesday.  The Rev. and Mrs. Pye left on Mon-  dav, Mr. Pye for conference, and Mrs.  Pye for a visit with her sister at Trail.  Probably as many as -'20 men left the  city the past week, many of them  miners, in search of work and business  places elsewhere. The whole mining  country is slack at present, and especially in the silver-lead districts.  From the blasting reports at the rear  of the Bluestreak office on Thursday,  many people thought the injured were  trying to avenge themselves on the  wincl "bag,' for past wrongs: It turned  out, however, that' the reports were  from blasts clearing out the creek.  War Declared.  City Officials Sent Wen With Axes to  Destroy the Ivanhoe Flume.  A second edition of the Boer war commenced iii this city on Thursday, when  the city sent men with axes to destroy  the Hume of the Minnesota Silver Co.  where it crosses the city flume near  Robertson's furniture store. In this  province the government controls all  the streams, and the Minnesota Silver  Co. claim they got permission from the  government to build, where they have  built. Whether the city got an equal  permission, we do not know. In any  event, neither parties can send men with  axes to destroy the property of the  other. If the government has giyen  permission to both parties to build, as  is likely,if the one sustains damage from  the workings of the other, the case  must be put in to the courts to secure  redress and recompense. The day has '  passed in Canada, and it is well it has,  when any party to recover damages can  take the law into his own hands; but  our council have a way of doing things  as they like and not as the law directs.  Police Court.  The case against Lovatt- came up for  City Council.  Met Monday evening, Mayor Cunning  in the   chair,   and   Aldermen   Brown,  Folliottand Jalland were present.  Letter from ���������Cliffe & Son re city printing, read and filed.  Scavenger collected :f'9Sin April; fines  hearing Wednesday evening before R. I and penalties for April $190.  The following accounts were ordered  paid:  Leon Deschane, a miner, sustained  quite an injury at the Ivanhoe mine a  few days ago by a fall of rock in an upraise in which he and a partner were  working. The partner escaped without  injury but Deschane was so '_badly  bruised he had to go to the hospital for  some days, but is now around again.  Cunning and F. C. Sewell, J. P.s. The  prosecution was under one of the city  bylaws, which proyides for hearing  before a police magistrate or two J. P.s  appointed by him. Mr. Grimrnett for  tlie pefendant questioned the juris,  diction of Sewell, J. P. The latter  dropped out, and the case fell to the  ground. ..We think it is a mistake  pushing cases for unintentional wrongs  when no one sufiers by them. V  In Tunnel and Stope.  The.only ore shipped from Sandon  this week was the American Boy 20 tons.  The K. & S. people are removing piles  from the bridge over the creek in the  city, and crossing the creek with a clear  span to give the floods a better chance  to pass by.'     l ,  At a representative meeting Saturday  night, A. C. Garde in the chair, a strong  motion of C. Cliffe and J. McMillan  urging suitable duties against lead  manufactures, and to more favorably  re-adjust the bounty on lead refining,  was passed unanimously andwas sent  to our member at Ottawa.  ,The Washington mine is now incorporated in 100,000 shares of $100 each.  / The. Whitewater mine shipped 172  tons of ore in April instead of 150 as reported last week.  The Wonderful mine has two cars of  ore ready, for shipment. It will be  brought down as soon as the roads are  in good condition.      ���������  W. de Rose is still hammering away  in ledge matter, mostly quartz, in the  long tunnel under the schoolhouse.

You will hear a great many   people  say, and especially those of American  proclivities, when speaking'of the dullness of business in the Slocan, ','you are  on the wrong side of the line."   This  is true in one   sense,   but  not in   the  sense in which it is  intended.   Nature  could not do, and could not haye done  more for this province than it has, no  matter which side of  the line it was on.  The advantages  then of living on the  other side are all purely of an artificial  character���������such   as   with wisdom our  people could easily make for themselves  if they only went the right way about  it.   In the first place,   some time' ago  the Americans put high duties on lead  and lead products,  that kept the home  industry free from competitors from any  and all quarters. ' We  are   only   now  trying to get our government to do the  same thing for British Columbia.  In the second place, while trusts are  denounced right and left by many  people and many institutions at home  and abroad, it is a trust that is keeping  life and activity in the silver-lead  industry on the other side of the line.  The United States are large enough to  consume the great bulk of the lead  production of that country, and the  smelting trust has made an arrangement with all the mines to take their  output at three and one-half cents a  pound. They can do it because they  have a home market for the entire  output, at a profit to themselves. If  our smelters, even with duties on lead,  were to make an arrangement with our  people, they would soon find themselves  in the soup, as one or two of our mines  could produce more than enough for the  whole country, and the local trust  would have no market for the balance.  This is an artificial condition that  nature has nothing to do with forming.  As the population.of Canada increases,  this condition will become more or less  reversed, but in the meantime, it is  here, and insurmountable. Our local  legislature cannot, of course, alter this;  but it can remove many vexatious enactments now in force, whose removal  would to a moderate extent compensate  for the other disabilities of the owners,  that legislation cannot cure. Again we  ask the Federal government to impose  a duty, not on lead as is the common  expression, as that alone could do no  good, but upon lead products/This  would shut out American and all  foreign products , in every form, and  give B. C products the whole Canadian  field; and place us, at the same time,  on equal footing with all other nations  as a competitor with manufacturers, in  all other countries where either raw  lead or , manufactures were required.  It would by no means assure our pro-;  WHAT'S  IN A NAME?  Depends upon the name.  Scott's Emulsion' is a name  that ' has value. Maybe' it  doesn't mean much to you���������  but to tHe consumptive who  has been strengthened and fattened, to the sickly children  who have received good health,  to the weak mothers and  babies who have grown strong  ���������to these Scott's Emulsion  means something.  of that month the following resolution  was passed on motion of Aldermen  Cameron and Stein, "That the city  clerk be instructed to call for bids for  all the city" printing."  ,ln a few days after we were asked to  tender on some work. We did so, the  work was accepted and paid for. Since  then, however, the clerk has given a  dozen lots of work to the other office, at  its own figure,, and without consulting  withthis office., The majority of the  council made through its official a legal  contract with us, and now the clerk  violates that contract, either of liis own  i sweet will or under instructions from a  To all Of them it has   meant i minority of the council,   we cannot say  an easy and natural return to  health.

This paper has endeavored from the  inception of municipal government to  urge measures in tlie interest of the  people, and because of doing so, a  minority of tlie council row violate a  contract, and wastes motiev to get even  with the paper for its advocacy of  public protfC'tioTi and civic economy.  It may in the first place be asked, what  right had the clerk to ignore instructions  given him by a resolution passed by a  majority of the board, and act either from  personal reasons or under minority instruction? And it may befurther asked  what right one or more, at least a  minority of the council, have to waste  public money in gratifying personal  prejud'ecs? In' carrying out the contract under resolution,  the city in the  year would save from  !|50 to a$100; and  the question of health ,    ,     . , .   , .       ,, ,  becomes mainly a [ the clerk either   of   himself  or  under  question of nutrition.

Are  THE WAY IT WAS DONE.  There is little wonder many of the  public find fault with the way the city  business is run. In February last the  publishers of this paper asked some  members of the city council to let the  city printing by tender, and on the 10th  little liability tp disorders of the liver,  bowels or such other disorders as may  result from innutrition    and  lack   of   exercise!  Dr. Pierce's  Golden Medical Discovery  cures diseases  of the stomach  and other organs of digestion and nutrition, and also  diseases of other organs which  are caused  by  the diseased  condition of the  stomach.      By  enabling the _  perfect nutrition of the  body it increases the. vital power ancl  promotes a vigorous old age.  ������I was a sufferer from chronic diarrhea for five  years," writes Mrs. Mary A. Aaron,-of Rolla,  Phelps Co., Mo. "I tried different remedies,,  which would give me relief for a short time  only. My trouble would return ns bad as ever.  I consulted you in July, 1900, and by your ndvicc  commenced using Dr. Pierce's remedies. I tools  two bottles of the*'Golden Medical Discovery,'  three vials of the 'Pellets,' and some of tho  'Extract of Smart-Weed,' as you advised.

Lovatt was  mayor, Mr. Lyons claimed to take all  his instructions from a majority of the  council, iunoring those of the mayor  altogether, now it suits his purpose to  ignore the instructions of tho majority  and take his cue from the mayor. This  is the situation.  The Bluestreak is blazing away' these  times in leaded columns of "leaders"  over the proposed iniquity of putting a  duty on lead and lead products "to  build up the refining industry." This  reminds one of thehuntsman that spent  a whole day adjusting the sight on his  rifle and shooting at a bear he saw in  the distance. What are you shooting  at enquired a passer-by. That bear up  yonder hill was the reply. The visitor  lodked and looked, and could see nothing; and on closer examination, discovered it was a bedbug on the eye  lashes of the huntsman that created  all the trouble. The same is true of the  Bluestreak, as the proposed duty is not  to benefit refining, but to create a home  market for the product when refined,  that the producer may by having larger  consumption at his door, get a better  price for his output. It is surprising  that all this powder f-hould be wasted  by our neighbor, when he could save it  by chasing the bedbug from his eyebrow  GOAL!  Everybody Wants  the Best Coal.

The fifth annual meeting of the shareholders of the Crow's Nest Pass Coal  Company   was  held    in   Toronto    on  ,'   March 7th.  The net profit of the year after paying  all operation expenses and all charge of  every kind, amounted to .$207,848.39.  After paying a dividend at the rate of 10  per cent per annum, a'balance of $28.-  142.89 was carried forward to the credit  of profit and loss.  This company's assets are their coal  mines and the townsite of Fernie. Four  years ago,this company had no transportation facilities,-and their slock sold  as low as 11 cents per share. Today  their stock is selling at $90.  The Similkameen Valley.

There are yet a couple of  unwritten  chapters   in   the  water  supply    and  alleged tax payment refusal of J. M.  Harris.   The Sandon Water & Light Co.  admit that during the extreme freezing  season of the winter there was at times  a scarcity of water,  for the reason most  of the water users in town,   aldermen  included, left their taps open night and  day to prevent freezing; and, of course,  no system that can be got in tho city  . could stand that drain and have a large  supply. In an honr after closing the taps,  however, there would  be a supply for  fire purposes.   Since the freezing there  has   been no deficiency, and now the  tank is overflowing and has to be  iron  banded to hold the supply.   The city,  however, never came to a business offer,  to balance taxes against the water and  light account, notwithstanding all the  bluster and blow of their mouthpiece;  and as matters stand, J. M. Harris cannot make an offer.   For instance, some of  thealdermen rent from him and covenant  to pay all taxes.   They have paid, none  for two or three years, and the amounts  stand against Harris in the city books.  If these aldermen   are  so  anxious to  collect taxes let them pay,   and when  the   list  of taxes is brought down to  Harris' actual indebtedness, the matter  so far as he is concerned can be easily  adjusted.   The Mining Review holds no  brief from either party in this dispute;  but it appears to have a right and a  wrong all the same.   In the mean time,  we may say, if the council will take no  steps to give the place fire  protection,  the people will themselves act in  the  matter very shortly.

The defendants appealed it,   and in the interval  claim to have found the records Merino  at the trial said weie not to be had ; and  they asked their lawyers to secure   for  them a new trial that they might bring [  in   their   new   evidence.

THE MINING REVIEW���������Saturday, May io, 1902,  The RamMer-Carilioo Mine.  The New Concentrator to be Started  by the 15th���������Shipments will be  Increased Next .Month.,  Steady progress is being made with  the development of the Rambler-Cariboo mine in McGuigan basin. A station  has 'been completed at .the" No. 6  level, where the main shaft attains a  vertical depth of 800 feet, and everything ia now in readiness for the continuing of sinking to the No.' 8 level,  where a total depth of 1,000 feet will  be had. This important work will he  got under way by the 15th instant,  when the water-driven compressor installed last fall will be started. By  that time the water' supply will be  ampie to operate the compressor, and  tlie opening up of the deep levels- will  be substantially facilitated. The new  concentrator .will be put into operation at the same time. Shipments  will be continued at the existing rate  of 450 tons monthly for the present, and  an increase to G00 or 70(Hons per month  is expected after the first of next  month. By this time the roads between  the mine and the shipping point on  the K. & S. railway will be in good  shape. At present thecompany is somewhat hampered in getting out ore' by  tho necessity of relaying ore from  sleighs to wagons .at the receding  enow line. i  Monitor and Ajax, Fraction.  The following circular has been issued  to the shareholders:  The directors of the Monitor and Ajax  Fraction, Limited, have pleasure in  informing the shareholders that the  time has now arrived when the business  of the company demands more spacious  office accommodation. New offices have  accordingly been secured, so you will  pleaso note that in future the registered  address will be as above.  The directors take this opportunity  of presenting to the shareholders the  following report on the company's  affairs since October of last year:  The issued capital of the company  now stands at the sum of ������29,753.  The purchase of the remaining one-  eighth share in the Monitor No. 2 mine  owned by Mr. A. R. Finland has, been  arranged, so that the whole of this  valuable property will now belong to  the company.  The development of the Monitor No.  2 and Hustler Fraction is being pushed  on with the most gratifying results,  some very rich strikes having recently  been made. The raise from the fourth  level to the third level is in ore the  whole distance of 122 feet.  To summarise the workings for the  past six months:;  (1.) 48GJ4 feet of development has  been done.  (2.) 347 tons of ore have been mined,  yielding ������6,109 2s.  (3.) Further valuable reserves have  been opened up.���������B. C. (Eng.) Review,  One avalanche of snow broke down  Aid.

Florida   Corporation   of   Kalso   in  the Courts.  The full court of British Columbia at  Vancouver has decided that the Florida  Mining Company, of Kaslo, that owns  mining property in the Jackson basin,  . must be wound up. Here are some of  Chief Justice Hunter's remarks on  the case: .      ������  "It is apparent from the evidence adduced that very loose methods were employed in the issue of those shares and,  without prcjndicingthequestion, I think  there is good reason to suppose that the  Jaw    was    not    complied    with     and  therefore, on the ground,  the order was  well made."   He adds that the cardinal  object for which the company was incorporated, tbeworkingof the Florida mine,  bas practically come to an  end by the  agreement for sale to J. J. Fleutoti (the  representative of a   French syndicate at  Kaslo) and at any rafe  it is apparent  that the company is unable to carry on  applications and that there is no reasonable prospect (hat it ever will be.   * * *  There  can   be    no    doubt    that   the  question of the justness of the alleged  liability of the company  to  Davis,  the  principal   shareholder,  as well as   his  and other directors' right to charge commissions, ought to be investigated especially in view of the  fact  that be has  always been in practical control  of the  affairs of the company,  and no reasonable means has been afforded for checking or verifying the liability, and this is  a good ground for making  the   order."  He therefore affirmed, the   compulsory  winding up and the other judges agreed.  Police Court.  ?as  achmes  Wooden and Fibre Tubs, and  Pails of Every Description.  Clothes.

We are in formed, however, that in thia country there  are but few Baloon or hotel keepers .who  rigidly adhere to all the requirements  of tho liquor law, and especially as to  Sunday closing, and we very much fear  persecutions of the kind above mentioned, for the reason that appears on  the surface, can only lead to trouble for  others in other directions that all good  citizens would like to see avoided.  .
