SANDON, B. 0;, SATURDAY, MAY 10,   1903.  $2.00 PER YEAR  /  FIX UP- THE MAIN' SWF.  Its Present Condition is a  Dis-  erace and Should be Reme-  died Without Delay.  The action of tlie city council in fixing up the main street will  meet with  the approval of all.   It  is   now   np   to  tho  saloon keepers in   that  section to  remove the obnoxious outbuildings and  foul smelling barrels, which  have long  been a disgrace  ami a menace   to   the  city.   This detestable spot bas been a  blurr to Sandon since the. fire, and has  been the cause of .much scathing criticism of our city officials for allowing such  an   abominable   condition   to   remain.  No   such   state of  affairs exists in any  other incorporated town in the province  and should not be permitted, hi this city  any   longer.   The councils   have been  prevented in the past from   taking  action through lack of funds, but pressure  has been brought to bear on the present  board   to  clear  away the obstructions  complained of and the officials are taking the matter in   hand.    With such a  good sewerage system hear at bund, as  the flume affords, thore is   no occasion  the least for the existence of the (Vancouver Branch Turns Down  three years through its continual post-  ment and was to have come up for a  hearing at-the sittings of' the Supreme  court, which is'now in session at Rossland.  The action arose oyer the sale of   the  well-known Arlington mine nearSlocan  City.     About three years   ago,  J.   K.  Chirk, of New Denver, plaintiff in   the  suit, brought action against J.-F.   Col-  loui, manager.of the   Arlington,   to recover 83,000 shares of .Arlington stock,  which, he claimed was due him by   wTay  of commission in the sale of   the   property  to   the   present   company.     The  action was vigorously cor le'jtud by  the  defendants on ihe grounds   thai   Claik  was not intrnini'iital in the  disposal  of  the  property   to   the present   holders.  The case  has   been   before the.  courts  several limes, anil on every   case   postponed through the raising-of some technical point.   The case was brought to a  final climax Tuesday in Eosslaud, when  an agreement-was arrived at  by. which  Ciarii accepts a cash   consideration   in  full settlement and withdraws liis suit.  The amount iii question is not given  out, on the ground that value might  be  placed on Arlingt'.-n stock by inference,  this being one of   the   clauses   in   the  settlement agreement.  Sluicing At the Wonderful.  RECTIFIES THE MISTAKE.  A few men were put to work at the  Wonderful this week, which has been  practically closed all winter. Mr.  Warner ia making preparation to start  sluicing as soon as water is available.  Although the snow is fast disappearing  on that side of the mountain yery little  water is obtained, there being no frost  in the ground the water disappears in  the earth almost immediately, and tho  cold night make a flow impossible. As.  soon as a stream is assured sluicing on  the old workings will be commenced.  Nearly all the ore taken from the Wonderful has been obtained in this manner, aiid it is hard to say what' may yot  be uncovered: - The tunnels are too wet  to work in at present. Nothing important has developed at tho mine; but if  the marketing of zinc was favorable  Mr. Warner could ship over 200 tons  without any trouble.  RICH STRIKE ON EMPRESS.  Over Four Feet of Solid Ore Encountered Wednesday���������  Seam Widening.  The Wakefield the past week has |  shown'considerable activity.-; The management have finished repairing the  buildings and trails around the mine  and will shortly have '40 men on the  payroll.  ANOTHER ZINC PUNT.  in  nuisance complained of in  front of our  churches and city hall.    Wilh  very little expense to the owners, the premises  could be greatly improved and  the condition of the street enhanced to a vast  extent. The proprietors of the Kootenay  hotel, with commendable energy, fixed  up their portion last year at their own  expense, and to   further   improve   the  street   front  added   a flower   bed and  fountain.   The  improvements  elicited  many complimentary remarks fiom observers, and the proprietors ol' tlie Kootenay weie   warmly  congratulated   on  all sides.   What has been done in thin  - instance'could be done  in  others.   In  the number of streotB we can only bonat  of a few, but those we possess should be  put in proper shape.   The   council   intend filling in along the fluine and level-  off the surface.   The board will petition  tho occupantB to remove .the   nuisance  complained of, and those that do not, so  much the worse for   themselves.   Tho  officials have effective measures in their  hands and will not  hesitate  to  utilize  them at the proper time.  Executive of Provincial Mining Association,  Clark vs. McCollum Case Settled.  ' The long-drawn action of Clark vs.  Collom'came to a s-ueees-sful tormina  tion this week, when tlie litigants  to the dispute agreed upon a mutual  basis of settlement. The casehasgained  considerable notoriety within  thepast  The executive of the Vancouver  branch of Provincial Min ing association  this week retified a mistake, in so far  as that bodv is concerned, by adopting a resolution, a direct refutation  of the one passed by the provincial executive at Victoria, by which they requested the Ottawa government to give  the smelter the lion's share of the bonus, if the Ottawa authorities should decide to do so. The following is the resolution drafted by the Vancouver branch :  Whereas, the lead 'mining industry is  now in ademoralized state, as'it'cannot  profitably be carried on  under present  conditions; and whereas, the Dominion  government   have   been   requested   to  render assistance by-��������� providing    adequate duties o.u lead and  its  products,  but have up to the preeant time  failed  to do so; and'whereas,   it   is   believed  that any assilance given  should  be   in  tbo nature of a bonus to be paid directly to the producers of  lead;   therefore,  be it resolved, that the   Dominion government be requested to'granta   bonus  to the producers of lead sufficient to revive the lead mining industry, and   the  various industrial and commercial   interests dependent upon it.     Be  it further resolved, that it   should   he   carefully provided that the bonus should be  paid.direct to the   producer,   and   that  the smelter and transportation companies should be precluded from  depriving  the producer of the benefit intended   to  be conferred by such bonus.  The Byron N.  White Company  Intend Building One at  The Slocan Star.  / The Slocan Star peopleintend shortly  to commence the erection of a zinc concentrating,   roasting  and   magnetizing  plant, the plans for which   are   nearly  complete.   The Byron  N.   White company is applying   for   water   rights on  Sandon creek to furnish  the necessary !  power.   The difference in altitude from  starting to returning   point  i6 400 feet  and ample power will be Becured.   The  application will be given a hearing before  the  commissioner on   tho 8th of  June, and when   granted   construction  will soon follow.   We are not in a position to give details, but suffice it to say  the plant will be-complete in every detail and electricity generated therefrom  for lighting the offices, bunkhouee  and  other   mine   buildings.   The  company  have enough zinc ore blocked out to ensure operation for an  indefinite period  when the plant is   lciuiy for   use.   The  ore is rich in silver values and contains  agood per centage of lead, and by  the  process of   miliing the values  will   ba  mostly  all   extracted   from   the  zinc.  There are many other  improvements  contemplated by the  company to commence before long and the coming season promises to be  one  of  the busiest  in the history of that rich property.  A rich strike of over four feet of solid .  ore was uncovered on tlie Empress near  Bear lake  last Wednesday.   This   pro-'  perty is   located   below the rich Silver  Glance and is owned by Major Vankirk.  He has been working   himself on. the  property for some time, and  from indications a week   ago   expected to strike  tho vein   any time.    Wednesday, near  evening, the Major uncovered a regular  glory hole, and   immediately started   a-  bonfire to notify his friends, who were  expecting a find, as   a  signal   that tho  expected   had   happened.   The  find is  important in other respects, as   it   substantially proves the  existence of large  and rich ore bodies at depth.   Tunneling was commenced 900   leet  down the  face of the hill and has   been   driven a  few hundred feet only.   Another tunnel  has been driven in  some distance 200  feet lower down, and although work on it  was discontinued for a time, it is practically certain to lap"the large' ore body  discovered and ascertain its depth.  The Empress -is   a dry ore properly,  and the vein uncovered is very rich in  silver;   Many  are  of   the opinion the  new find is acontinuation of   the  lead  struck on the Silver Glance, which has  been a producer from   the  grass roots.  The ore recently taken out.of this property assayed GOO ozs. silver to  the ton.  The ore on the Empressisof the samo  high grade and the body is extending  as the work is   progressing.   Il6   exact  width is not known, but over four   feet  of clean ore has been  exposed   to view.  Should the discovery turn out as anticipated, Major Vankirk  bas   a   veritable bonanza. He is heavily interested  in a number of other.claims   in  the immediate vicinity, and if more 'striker of  this magnitude occur, Bear  Lake   will  be a mining centre of the future.  F. L. Christie was attending court   in  Kossland this week.  A petition le being circulated in town  asking the provincial inspector to make  a much needed change in the  mail service to Sandon. For some time past the ''  mail has   been   exclusively carried   by  the C. P. E., and much   inconvenience  is felt.   The C. P. fi. is from two to five  hours late almost daily, and   it   is only  through the courtesy of the postmaster  that box holders receive their mail late  in tho evening.   Mailto   and   from the  east of Calgary goes a   roundabout way  via Nelsori, instead of direct   by Ka6lo,  and should reach here at noon instead  of night.   There is just cause for complaint and we hope   the   inspector \vill  act promptly in the matter. THE MINING REVIEW���������Saturday, May  16,  1903.  The Mining Review.  SATURDAY, MAY 16, 1903.  Everything points to a Dominion general   election   next  fall.   The  departments in Ottawa  are   preparing for it  and the idea is to go to the country before   Sir Wilfrid   Laurier's health   becomes so shattered as to   force   him   to  retire.   This  explains   the  cooking of  the public accounts so as to show fake  surpluses in the post office department  and on tho Intercolonial railway.   In a  series of manipulations by which large  amounts due capital account are  being  carried over until next year, Hon. W. S.  Fiulding is arranging for a big' surplus  for the fiscal year.   This balance, which  will be reached  on   the "robbing Peter  to   pay Paul" basis, will result  in   an  enormous deficit during 1903-04, but it  will then be beyond the ability of   the  people to  punish   the oifunders.   The  whole arrangement is looked upon as a  carefully laid plot to deceive the elect-  *  orate as to the real condition of the  country's-finances. Sir William Mu-  lock's action in representing his department as having a surplus of $5,000,  which the Auditor General declares is a  deficit of ,$380,000, furnishes an excellent example of the lengths to which  the piesent ministers of" the crown are  prepared to go in order to lead the people astray. When the year 1903-04 in  fully exposed the supposed surpluses  will have disappeared and instead the |  offsetting shortage will be a boomerang  to those who put their trust in the Lib  eral leaders.  The Montreal Staradvances  the following sensible argument for building  upJJanada to thepartiesmostconcerned  Clin the welfare of the country :  "To the Government of Canada.  Give the manufacturers, working-  men, and farmers of Canada the  same kind of tariff, as that which  has made the- United .States the  home of the most prosperous manufacturers, working mm and farmers  in the world.  To the Manufacturer of Canada.  Force the government to give you as  good a tariff as thatwhich has made  the American manufacturers rich.  When you get this tariff, pay your  Can.sdian workmen American wages.  To the Workingmen of Canada.  Take a leaf out of the book of the  American workingman. Helpyour  employers to obtain for themselves  and for you a Canada-for-Canadians  tariff.  To the Farmers of Canada. ,  Profit by the experience of the  American farmers, tho wealthiest  larmers in the world, who supporta  high tariff and prosper under it and  because of it."  The provincial legislature adjourned  for another week on account of the investigation into the Columbia & Western land grant.   Whatever the finding  of the committee, the province will have  to thank Wells and Dunsmuir   for   the  prevention of one of the  moat gigantic  steals in   the   history of Canada.   The  outcome means the overthrow of C. P.  R. dominatiDn   in   British   Columbia.  As the enquiry proceeds the exposure of  the railway officials is not very edifying..  Sir Thos. Shaughnessy and Geo. McL.  Brown have been flalty contradicted  by  Commissioner Wells in regard to handing   over   the  grants  in   dispute.   He  states emphatically that thedeeds never  left his hands and sticks   to  his  statement.     The railway   officials  declare  otherwise, but   have   not   proved their  contention.   The scapegoat of the scandal   appears   to   bo  Attorney General  Eberts.   He appears to be the most implicated towards giving away the lands  to the railway for a share in   the allotment to himself, and his expulsion from  the cabinet is looked for. -  The dock laborers strike in Montreal  was called off last Monday. The men  received practically all tliey asked for  except recognition of the union. The  strikers lought hard to obtain the latter  which was the cause of the strike, but  the shippers were firm inrefus.il. 'Ihe  trouble  crippled   ocean traffic to that  REWARD  ForWowM  WHO GAM/SOT BE CURED.,  Backed up by over a third of a century  of remarkable and uniform cures, a record  such as no other remedy for the diseases  and weaknessess peculiar to.women ever  attained, the proprietors and makers of  Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription now feel  fully warranted iu offering' to pay $500 in  legal money of the United States, for any  case of L,eucorrliea, Female Weakness,  Prolapsus, or Falling of Womb which they,  cannot cure. All they ask is a fair and-  reasonable trial of their means of cure.  They have the most remarkable record  of cures made by (his world famed remedy  ever placed to. the credit of any preparation especially designed for the cure of  woman's peculiar ailments.  A beautiful Georgia lady, Vice-President of  the East Hud Palmetto Club, of Savannah, and  promi^ut socially there, relates the following  experiiSice: "You certainly have produced the  finest medicine for suffering: women that is to  belind'in the country.. I want to recommend  it especially to mothers. 1 was seventeen yearn  old when my darling boy was born. Felt very  exhausted aud weak for a long time, and it  seemed 1 could not get my strength back. My  sister in-law bought me a bottle of Dr. Pierce's  Favorite Prescription (after I had tried several  of the other remedies which are so much advertised, and found uo relief). I had little faith  in the medicine at the time and was so weak  aud sick that I felt discouraged, but within a  week after I had commenced taking your ' Prescription' I was like a different woman. New  life and vitality seemed lo come with each succeeding day, until, in a few weeks, I was in fine  health, and n' happy, hearty woman! My boy  is now two years old, aud, thanks to your splendid medicine, I am enjoying perfect health; If  nt any time I feel tired or in need of a tonic, a  few doses of your ' Favorite Prescription' recuperates me at once.

A large number of ship's of the  various trans-Atlantic lines were tied  up at the docks, and unable to unload  their cargoes. Work is now in full  awing and the men are asi eager as the  shippers to raise the congestion of traffic and resume business. The strike  was keenly felt throughout the cityand  many other places, and the relief i-  great now it is over.  much by the provincial papers. Those  that did express an opinion did not  think much of it, and those that didn't  the ragtime editors don't think much of  [thecn. The "literary cyclone",has left  no trail b������hind it.  The eoleny of Victoria, in the Australian Commonwealth, the home of  socialism, ban a big strike on hand.  Practically every trade aud calling in  that country is unionized, and all lln-  unions are amalgamated undpr an executive body'called'the Trades Hall. The  state owns and operates the railways  and all employees receive a pension  from the government for length of sei-  vice, upon retirement. The employees  recently decided to affiliate themselves  with the trades hall. The government  demanded the men to withdiaw, on the  ground that if a general strike was ordered the men would have to go out and  the railways would be tied up. In the  event of the men not complying to the  request, they would be discharged. The  employees refused, but superceded the  action of the government, and wentont  on strike. Traffic for a time was paralyzed, but the trouble is now rapidly being overcome. Old retired engineers  have been called out' to replace the  strikers and university students mobilised to protect traffic. Tho government  have the difficulty well in hand and  have notified the strikers their length  of service pensions will be withdrawn.  There is a possibility of all the employees on the railways iu New South Wales  going out in' sympathy, and if they do  the outcome is hard to foretell. From  this it is eyident that with all tlie benefits heralded by socialism .it does not  bring harmony in labor cirles.  The Libeial party at Ottawa seem to  be divided on the tariff*issue. From the  speeches delivered on the budget some  want protection, others free trade, a few  want reciprocity, and a number want  nothing but their salary.  Coal is now being broughtfrom Japan-  to the coast to meet tho demand caused  by the closing down of the DunHinnir  collieries.

One of tha moat interesting features  in the general financial situation  duiing the past fortnight or so has been  the decided advance which has .been  taking place in the price of bar silver  together with the attending improvement in India exchange and in the premium upon gold at the City of Mexico.  At the beginning of the present year  bar silver was quoted in the neighborhood 22^d. per ounce at London and  48 cents at New York. Early in tlie  year there was a decline from these  figures, and all appearances justified  the belief that the downward tendency  would continuo and carry silver to a  much lower level than had yet been  seen. There was also a rise ,in the  Muxican gold premium to the neighborhood of 270.  It is only   about  a   month   since  a  change in thia situation began tobecome  apparent. Prices for barsilverstrength-  ened considerably as soon as it was announced that the Congressof theUnited  States at its recent session had  passed  the act providing for  the  purchase  of  about $7,000,000 worth of bar silver  for  coinage into the new Philippine Island  pesos which are to be exchangeable for  American dollars at the fixed ratioof 50  cents on the dollar.   At the same time,  it was  understood  that   the  Mexican  government was making   sensible   progress in its   efforts   to   secure   a  more  Btable basis for exchange between  that  country and the gold-currency  nations  with which its  external; trade  is  conducted.   It was not  until   a  fortnight  ago, however, that  the   rise in   silver  became accentuated.    The movement,  once started, assumed great headway,  and, as waa pointed out in thesecolumns  a week ago,   silver  prices  attained  a  higher level than they have reached   in  several years.     This waa due primarily  to the buying of about 500,000  ounces  each week by the "United States treasury for the Philippine coinage,   which  materially reduced the floating supply  of the metal and curtailed the amount  offered in London, where, as has recently been the case; there was a considerable amount needed to supply engagements for shipments to the tast,  made  in connection with   what  are  termed  contracts for forward delivered.1   Lon-:  don, in other words, was short of silver,  and the demand thus created   forced  a  sharp rise which carried   the  price  of  metal in that market in the early part  of the present week up to as high as   25  l-16d. per ounce, while  at New  York  the  quotation   for    commercial    bars  reached the level of 54%  cents.     This  was accompanied by a sharp  drop  in  the Mexican exchange rate, gold   being  quotod in the City of Mexico at as  low  as 220, which represented a drop  of 50  points.   There naturally has been a re-  action from the advance,  silver,   both  at London and New York, selling off on  the reduction of the demand to  recover  shorts at the former city and on realizing sale  by  the  speculative  interests  which had been induced to   buy   th*  metal by the prospect of th������ rise.  For the time being, however, silvor  promises to remain around the present  figures, the most cogent reason for this  being that the United States '."government is.still in the market and will  have to buy upward of 4,000,000 ounces  more in order to complete the requirements for the new Philippine coinage.  What will occur thereafter it is impossible to foretell.. At the same timo,  there is a feeling in well-informed circles that a change for the. better', has  occurred in the position and prospects  of the silver market, arid that the metal  is likely to remain upon a somewhat  higher level than it has ���������. recently ��������� enjoyed.���������BradstreetB.

Interesting: Mining Notes. \  - 1  Oiie twentieth of the.Ywealth of the  German nation is in 6,900 stock companies. -  The total output of gold from the Canadian Yukon since the country wasfirst  entered exceeds $80,000,000.  More ore was mined and hoisted to  surface at-Lake Superior iron mines the  past winter than ever before.  Not the most valuable, but .one of the  most beautiful in appearance of Australian gold nuggets was the Victorian,  found in White Horse .Gully, Bendigb.  It was purchased by the Victorian, parliament for $8,250 and presented to the  late Queen Victoria.  Tne record for shaft sinking still lies  with South-Africa.. At the VVolhuter  mine, the Rand, where sinking is now  at a depth of 1,500 feet, the main shaft  on the vien was sunk 209 feet' during  . November. The same shaft has a record  of 774 feet in four   months   divided   as  Development syndicates.  f^Mows: 197'in August, 182 in'Septem-  be, 204 in October and. 206 in November.'  Heretofore Great Britain has had tlie  monopoly of the diamond business  in  Africa, which is practically that of the  worid. There have been no other mines  that approached  those of   the   famous  Kimberly   district   in   richness.     But  Germany hopes to be able soon to dispute England's title as,the world's diamond monopolist.   Rich fields are said  to have  been   discovered   in  German  Southwest Africa,   which   it  is   hoped  will rival the wonderful DeBeers mines.  Some capitalists of Bremen, headed by  Senator Achelis, have organized a  syndicate to work these new found   minen,  and tho German newspapers are already  prophesying   the   corning   end   of   the  B -itidh tn jnopoiy of the diamond  business.  " The prospector is a natural gambler;  he is an optimist   par  excellence:   he  lives on hope, light, air, and   scenory,  and erects his "Castle's in Spain"   with  unfailing'industry"from every' prospect  hole he works, notwithstanding he may  be doomed to disappointment again and  again.   He always looks for the bonanza  shoot at the next 6hot, and  delves   his  way   into   the   hills   persistantly   and  patiently year after year.    While practically discouraged* from lack of results,-  he has acquired the habit of hope  and  so works until he can no longer acquire  a grub Make.   This class of men usually  ready to giye a yery favorable bond are  and lease on their property, and   for   a  comparatively few dollars, surrender the  control to a company   with   capital   to  develop, preferring  to retain   a   small  nonassessable   interest   in   a  growing  proposition than to own all   of a   dead  one..  A developing syndicate or a  pool  can often.for a   few   thousand   dollars  take such a propertj' and   by   judicious  development, put it in a shape to   sell  for ten times the anibuntitcost..  There  is however, no limit to the activity tbat  could be given by the operations of such  an association, to all lines of business,  which, by the way, are always- keenly  in touch with prosperity in mining.

McCabe, one of the most  prominent men of the Methodist Episcopal church, tells on amusing incident  at his own expense arising, from confusion of similar nameB.  The bishop says that while he was in  Fort Worth, Texas, during the the discussion of ah Anglo-American alliance",  a New YoiK newspaper wired hini for  his opinion on the subject. The telegram read as follows:  ' "C. C. McCabe, Ft. Worth, Texas;  What is your opinion of the Anglo-  American alliance? Please wire us  answer."  Now it happens that there resides  in  Fort Worth, Texas, a quite well-known  citizen of the name of   C.   C.   McCabe.  The telegraph company, knowing C.- C.  McCabe better than the viaiting bishop,  delivered the message at the  former's  house.     The recipient   waa  considerably surprised at such a request for his  opinion, but reasoning it out  one  way  or another, he concluded to answer  it,  and wrote acrosa the face of thetnessage  that he had received, his answer as follows:  "It ia a damn good th;ng.''  The surprise in the office of the New  York newspaper at 6uch a violent  expression coming from a good Methodist  Bishop can well   be   Imagined,  and  a  second telegram more plainly addrersed  succeeded in reaching Bishop  McCabe.  His opinion on the subject and explanations followed.
