Sandon,  the Famous Silver City,  -The Finest Mines in the DisttidFaicSitu-  1 ,     ated Round About This Busyand  Important   Place.  (From the Nelson Miner.)  ,-   Sandon is situated in a harrow gulch  '     near the head of r Carpenter creek,   in  the Slocan mining division.   The town  . owes its existence to the development  of the Reco mine by Mrr J. M. Harris,  who also was the original owner of the  town.ite.   Sandon is   an   example   of  what enterprise ami energy can accom-  ' plish in building a town whero to, all  appearances nature never intended   a  townsite to' be located.   On cither sid<>  of the gulch are towering mountains,  with unbounded mineral wealth, while  down below is a busy, progressive little  city.   Tho main.strect of the   town   is  so narrow that when the space for the  e_������ sidewalks i������ taken off the   sides   there  T    is scarcely room for vehicles ' to   pass  oach other.   Along this   street,   however, are weir built   business   houses  .    and several first-class hotels..  The towa was incorporated'in 1897,  and hag all the conveniences of a mod-  > em city.     A  system/ of waterworks  furnishes the'eitizens with'   an   excellent water supply. *  A separate "system' of   waterworks  has been installed fori fire   protection  purposes. ^Along the narrow street the  - pipes for the two systems run" parallel  ' and a third pipe is now being' laid   to  supply the buildings along   thc  street  "-'with steam heating,   the   steam   for  which is generated from'a large boiler  The town-has also an excellent electric  light system'-,and   telephone   service.  .   These conveniences are largely due   to  the enterprise of Mr. Harris who, 'be-  -    sides being.the founder of   the" town,'  has always taken a  deep -interest v in  every question affecting  the   progress  <��������� of the city. *    > ,        ��������� ' L'  Two railways, the C. P. JR. from  Nakusp'and the narrow guage Kaslo '&  Slocan 'railway from , Kaslo connect  Sandon,with the outside world. .Roth  these railways'have "had considerable  difficulty in securing an entrance into  the town but engineering science ,and  skill finally, triumphed and overcame  the barrier placed iu its-wav'by nature. ,'-' r . -" '-. " ,  The mines in Lthe vicinity of Sandon  are perhaps the richest in the Slocan,  at any rate the'dividends paid by them  far exceed the combined dividends of  all the other minrs in the ��������� Kootenay.  The most famous of t these are tho  ���������Payne, Slocan Star, Reco, Idaho.Ramb-  ler-Cariboo,"Goodenough, Last Chance  and others. I"  The last report of the provincial  minister of mines for the year% ending  December 31,1897, gives the following  as the amount paid . in- dividends, by  these mines, .although' the actual  amount paid'eannot be stated as some  of the'mmes never make their profits  public: Payne, $1,800,000 of which  $960,000 were paid in 1897; Slocan Star,-  ������_00,000fc Reco, $280,000; .Idaho, $220.-  000; Rambler-Cariboo, "$40,000; Last  Chance, $_0;000.,,These dividends will,  however, be found to be largely increased when the next report of the  department of mines is issued, ns all  the properties mentioned have been  large shippers during the past year.  In the autumn of 1896 and the   winter of 1897,, the   silver, mines   of   the  Slocan attracted unusual attention, as  the great money making   possibilities'  of very high-' grade   silver-lead   veins  became apparent^ A real   boom/ was  inaugurated, and the town of' Sandon  which the previous year consisted of a  few log shacks,   built  up   rapidly   as  many people crowded in.   In July the  sudden drop- in   tho   price   of  silver  checked speculation and the town suffered for a time from   the   temporary  depression.   The mines in   the   vicinity, however,   continued   to   increaso"  their output and despite the fact that-  gold is ,the   favorite   and  silver   has  fewer friends, several of the larger and  developed properties have passed under  the control of British capital, the fact  being realized that  this  high   grade  Slocan   silver-Jea'd   ore  is   extremely  profitable and yields   handsome   dividends even at the present price of the  white .<netal.   In 1895 the total output  ,of the mines of tne Slocan   was   9,514  tons, valued at,$1,045,600; in 1897, the  'output had increased   to   33,576   tons  ���������allied   at  $3,280,686.     Tho   average-  value of the ore "shipped  during  the  three years was $103.60 per ton.   Most  of the ore   is   shipped   to   American  smelters, the   freight  and  treatment  running from $20.50 ��������� to $22   per   ton.  Silver is paid -for at   the   New   York  price at the'time ef settlement for  95  per cent, of assay value, and lead also  up to 90 per cent, of assay value.   The  duty is one and a half cents on   every  pound of lead in the ore   as . exported  to   the   United   States  although   the  Bmelter only pays the miner for 90 per  cent The ore is shipped in bond to  the smelter where the smelter men pay  the duty to the United States government deducting it in their settlement  with the mine owner. Tne province  also levies a tax of one per cent, on the  value of the ore after deducting freight  anil treatment charges. Taking the  average ore for 1897, the freight and  treatment charges per ton were $22,  the duty on the lead contained therein  $15.25. government tax .75, making a  total of $30. c. This deducted from the  average value of $97.70,,. leaves a net  profit of about $50 on average Slocan  ore.  The town of Sandon being situated  right in th'e heart of the richest part  of the Slocan district, at least so far  as development work has proved,  naturally reaps the larger share of the  profits from the mineral development  of the 'country. In its immediate  vicinity are nearly all the mines mentioned above, and it is estimati d that  in the mining district tributary to it,  there are at the present time over 1,000  men working in the mines. Besides  "this a large amount of work is being  done on claims which have not as yet  developed into shipping mines. The  wages paid are from $3 50 io $4 per  day. This large pay roll combined  with the profits'of the mines, cannot  fail to maintain Sandon as a busy and  properous mining centre.  SOME OF THE MINES.  the  The largest dividend payer in  Slocan is the Payne situated high up  on the mountain side, about 1Jsmiles  from Sandon. Towards'the "end of 1896  thc half interest in the Payne and  adjoining claims was purchased for  $87,000 by the owners of-the.other half  interest and since then this mine the  first lecated in the Slocan has taken  first place as a shipper and dividend  payer. The mine is connected with  the C. P. R. by an aerial tramway and  with the K. & S. railway by' a surface  tram, the latter being probably the  longest three rail gravity tramway in  the world. It is 6,000 feet long, with a  vertical drop of 2,500 feet;, steel cable  | inch; load per car five" tons; average'  time of descent eight minutes. At the  present time 125 men'are employed at  the mine and 60 'tons of ore are being  shipped daily.-The average smelter  returns give a value of 105s ounces of  silver and 55 per cent, lead p_er ton.  The Slocan Star another large divi-  den payer, is situated a few thousand  yards from Sandon. At ' present 102  "men are empio3red and regular ship  ments of 20 tons of concentrates are  made daily. An aerial tramway connects the mine with the mill and the  whole process of mining ana treating  ores is carried on by the best approved  modern methods. i, >  In close proximity to the Slocan Star  is the Rnth, one "of the largest and  most constant sliippers in the Slocan.  Fifty-five men are employed and one  car of high grade ore is shipped daily  to the sampling works at Kaslo. Both  the Ruth and the Slocan Star have air  compressors.  The' Reco, the dividends froni which  up to January 1, 1S9S, were $287,000  since which date another dividend of  550,000 has been paid is owned principally by J. M. Harris. At present  "only a few men are employed, but development-work has been vigorously  prOBeeuted during the summer and on  -the return of J. M. Harris, it is expected that regular shipments and  more active operations wiir be resumed. The mine is said to look better  than ever aud large bodies of high  grade ore have been blocked out.  At the Noble Five, 30 men are employed and the owners are, trying to  recover themselves from tho financial  difficulties into which thc large expenditure for the construction of the  tramway and the mill plunged the  mine.   The mine is looking well.  Thc Lasi Chance recently shipped  500 tons of ore" over the Noble Five  tramway, but the company are building a tramway lrom thc mine to Cody  siding. About 40 men are employed  and a four foot senm of rich oie has  recently been struck.  The Sovereign employs 25 men and  is shipping on an average one car of  high grado ore per week. ,  The Idaho cmplo. s 90 men at the  mine and the concentrator and is shipping an average of one car per day.  At ihe Queen Bess, 70 men are employed and shipments of 10 cars of ore  per month are being made. The work  of the past year has shownuip a large  amount of good grade.  The Cariboo-JJambler ships   one car  per iveek and employs 20 men.  .The Anloine, hear McGuigan siding,  employs 20 men and is shipping   four  cars per month. "  i1      .  At the Surprise, six men are working and rich ore is being shipped."   '  The Dardannells will resume operations shortly when the new pump for  which the pipe is now being hauled is  installed.  The Ivanhoe, owned by thc Minnesota Silver company, employs 20 men,,  blocking out ore and in   development  work.  On the Canadian group, eight men  are employed in general development  work.  Other propel ties in the Sandon district on which forces of men are engaged in development work, and some  of which made shipments of ore at intervals aro the Charleston, Adams  group, Wonderful group. Military,  Jackson mines in Jackson Basin, Great  Western and Blue Bird.  Besides the mines mentioned above,  there are numerous properitics in tbr.  vicinity in various stages of development which will doubtli"-s prove  equally as rich as the large mines oj  tho district.     -  The advantage of mining in the Slocan is that it docs not require so large-  an amount of money to develop the1  property and make a mine ns in other  parts of the/Kootenay. In many crises  pay ore has been struck at (lie "grass  roots" and thc cost of development has  been paid from shipments o''ore. Tho  cost of mining is also very' low, lht-  rock in some of the_.properties b_ing  comparatively soft and requiring but  little dynamite. The gradual but continuous rise in tho price ol silver during the past few weeks cannot fail - to  give a great impetus-to the mining  industry in the Slocan and where during the past 12 months, the country  has suffered from severe financial and  commercial depression, a new era of  prosperity has dawned. The mountains of the Slocan contain the largest  and richest silver-lead bodies of ore  known in th'e world to-day and that  district may be expected to go ahead  in the next few years with leaps and  bounds.  SLOGAN il.  Prettily  '   Foot  Situated Town  at   the  of Slocan Lake. ������  THE COIN MINIM CO.  They Are Pushing Work Vigorously on  Several Claims.  The Coin Mining Co., of which Mr.  W. W. Warner is the local representative, appear to be taking 'a lively interest in this part of the country just  now. We understand they are interested in the Treasure Vault, juat below_  the Last Chance, and have Mr. Warner  atworkcwith several,, men driving a  long tunnel in it. and doing other de-  veJopmcnt work. They., have taken a  I������ise-on the * Ajax Fraction 'adjoining  the Ajax and are pushing dcvoluprr cut  work on it with good prospects ahead.  Mr. Warner is superintending. '  In addition they have a lease on the  Madison group and Mr. Warner is  pushing work on this also. All three  properties promise to turn out-satisfactory in every respect.  .The Ajax Mine.  On the east vein of this property the  Ajax Mining & Development Co. have  been engaged for the last-three months  running a cross-cut tunnel to tap the  lead 110 feet below tho ore chute.  Yesterday eight inches of galena assaying 176 ounces in silver "and 75 per  cent, lead was broken into. v  The compan3' now have between  tunnels numbers, one, two and three  175, feat of stoping ground, and ns the  lead is stronger and the ore increasing  in width with depth, this adds very  materially to the value of tho property.  No ore will be shipped at present as  the company propose to thoroughly  develop the property. About 20 men  are empolyed on the property.  -__a_  Development at the Whitewater.  It is rather a hard task to give this  town a write up at the present time, and  do it justice. The reason for this is that  it is suffering from a severe set-back, or  fit of "the blues," as a result o'f two  things, viz. a boom and the slump in  silver following the*'boom. Naturally  this feeling of depression is felt on all  sides���������many of the settlers having left  and others thinking of following suit.  But notwithstanding tho hard times and  thier effects there . is springing up from  the ruins a feelingof confidence,not only  ainiyig the business men and mine o m-  ers, who have had tho grit to hold on  and.await the turn of the tide, but with  all those who make a stop at the place.  This feeling of confidence is not to be  wondered at when one takes into, consideration the number of good mining  propertieb and the still greater number  of promising prospects near at hand and  tributary to the town, also the many  acres of rich bottom laud along the valley of the Slocan river awaiting" the set-  .tier. This land will, no doubt, in time  as the Kootenay country becomes better  developed, be the home of, many ranchers and fruitgrowers, as-it is in every  way adapted for such purposes. Already  some of the people of th* district have  secured locations and making ready the  soil for product ion'.* "*' ',  As, this section is almost entirely dry  ore the minos and prospects were more'  directly affected by-tho fall in the price  of silver last year. Consequently there  ifa less activity in mining operations and  deals than in other portions of the Slocan. Still, as the leads carry gold and  copper in addition to silver, they make  good assays, and many of the mines are  forging ahead and making names for  themselves, others are being bonded by  representatives of syndicates, and in this  way with tho turning in of capital the  camp will eventually be an important  one again.  Thoie are pending some important  sales, and several pioperties have lately  been bonded. Ainong the'' bonded are  tlie, Monument far ������90,000' and the  Dutchman.^"roup-for, $ii5,_'_0. Tlie BEoo;  doo has been leased by Messrs." Rackliff  and Teeter Bros., from which a trial  shipment will soon be made. At the  Evening Star there is some stir. Hugh  Sutherland, the proprietor, has had a  steam hoist and other machinery put in,  and work will be pushed steadily.,  The miners and some of the citizens,  with commendable enterprise, have  made a collection of samples from most  of tho mines and prospects in the camp  for an exhibit at Spokane Fruit Fair.  The samples, which will be labelled, will  be shipped in a cabinet constructed by  Messrs. Fyfe and Copeland. It is -neatly finished and covered with green baize  and will be set up in the form of a pyramid standing 6 feet high. 'The exhibit  will be in charge of Mr. Dan Hanlon, a  well-known  tends making an ideal farm. .Mr. Linton  has a bookstore and Mr. Hammond a  news and fruit stand. These with other  institutions give this burg plenty of supply houses, and if the improvement  comes in the spring, which the citizens  seem to build on, Slocan City may again  flomish and become, what nature evidently intended, a residential spot.  OUR PUBLIC SCHOOL.  The Trustees  Recommend   Engaging a  Second   Teacher.  The London & B. C. Goldlields company is meeting with great'succes* in  thc development of thc Whitewater  property. The company has issued a  circular to the shareholders informing  them that the development done upon  the property has opened up an ore  body which exceeded the company's  expi ctations, but tho conditions have  not been favorable for the shipment of  iarge.quantitics of ore. Sinco -March  2-lth to the latter part of -August the  shipments did not exceed 420 tons.  The grade of the ore, however, is improving, the last carload avcr-ge 160  ounces silver.  Separate Company  to Take Over Ymir.  The British Columbia Review contains a paragraph to the effect that a  special settlement on the stock exchange has been applied for by the  New Golden Twins���������Ontario, 2,293 ������1  shares, fully paid, and Vendors, 59,714  ������1 shares, fully paid. The company  will carry into' effect an agreement  with the London & British Columbia  Goldfieldsfor the purchase of the Ymir  gold mines, situated at Wild Horse  creek, West Kootenay, comprising  four claims, known as the Ymir, Rock-  laud, Mugwump and Golden Horn.  and practical mining man.  This will, no doubt, meet with its reward  by putting before some of the American  capitalists the possibilities, lor profitable  investment in this section of the great  Slocan country. Tlie following is a list,  as nearly as could be obtained, of the  properties represented:  The Enterprise, Arlington, Chaple&u,  Cameronian, Republic, Peerless, Skylark  an������l Ranger, Excelsior, Hoodoo, Howard  Fraction, Evening Star, Meteor, Saddle  Rock, Ottawa, Rainbow, Paystreak, Two  Friends, Estelle, 16 to 1, Mogul, Nancy  Hanks, Crusader, Vancouver, Sundown  Fraction, Highland Blight, Bell Mineral  Claim, Exchange group, AJlbury, Lone  Banner, Alliston, Coronation, Calumet  and Hinkler, Eldorado, Standard, Noble  Four, Alberta, Tailholt, Crookum, Gold  Rock, Viking, Monteray, Simcoo, Centre  Star, Gold Bank, Joe Bailie, and Railroad group.  The town has a splendid site, probably  the best in all Kootenay, there boing so  much level land, extending from the  rivei to tho old townsito of Brandon, a  mile distat, and down the valley for several miles. The main street, a wide and  well graded one, leads directly to the  wharf where tho Slocan steamer from  Rosebery connects with the Nelson  trains. Tho steamer makes two trips a  day tying up at Slocan City instead of  Rosebery as formerly, some of the officials taking up their residence here,  which would indicate that the C. P. R.  are taking an interest in the place. The  town is about two years old and shows  up well for such a short existence. Its  hotels are quite up-to-date, among them  tho Arlington, the Slocan, Royal, Two  Friends, and Sloan Bros'. The hardware  trade is well represented by 'McCallum  & Co., T. D. Woodcock, Main Bros, and  Bobinson & Co. General merchants,  Chatford & Co., E. Parris & Go. Grocer,  Crook <fe Arnst. Butcher, A. York &  Co. Drugs, Mr. Smith. Blacksmith,  Mr. Wilson. Mr. Bull has a real estate  and insurance office and besides has  taken up some  ranch land which he in-  ' We understand the government have  said as soon as there are 40 children of  school age in Sandon that will attend  school, they will pay the salary of a  second teacher. Under the circumstances, it becomes the duty of tbc-  trustees to have a school census taken  and report. We are fully convinced  that the number required for the second teacher are here. The employment of a second teacher would be a  great service to the city.  We are aware that Miss Skinner is a  diligent teacher, well qualified for her  duties and doing them faithfully; but  wc have fcogr.pple with things as they  are, and not with them as we would  like them to be. There are'many  parents who think she has not the  "physical strength," as they put it, "to  handle the big children." If such  parents would only take a hand in and  do some of the handling themselves at  home, there would be a mueh easier  task before the teacher. We have frequently said, and we repeat it again, it  is the pi-irents, in 99 cases out of every  100,' who are to blame if their children  do not succeed at school, under the  present methods of teaching. They  will speak disrespectfully t of the  teacher in their' children's hearing,  find fault with the teacher's methods  and all that kind of thing. The angel  Gabriel from heaven could not succeed with a school on earth with such  influences against him���������he would fail  in his duties, and we want the parents  of Sandon, one and all, to remember  this. If you want your children to  succeed at school strengthen the hands  of your teachers. This is the only  way to do it.  i. However, as Miss Skinner, in the  -situation, has really more to do than  she is able to do,properly. As we said  above, thc trustees, ought to look into  the matter and see if a second teacher  cannot-be secured. People think that  at least with a second teacher there  are better educational facilities in thc  place, and it is the means of, keeping  familes and children in the place instead of going elsewhere for the school  advantages they desire. The second  teacher "would help the place everj  way, and we should have one���������a male  principal with Miss Skinner as assistant.  wise thing in .lecting Dr.Young president, as later on there may   be   some  sore heads who will need a  physician.  Joking aside, however, the  Doctor  is  popular and  will  be  of much   service to the   band.     Mr.   Gable   was  chosen   vice-president;     Mr.    Webb,  secretary and to Mr. Griffith has been  alloted the duty of holding the purse.  Griffith. Sewell and Cliffe were elected  to draft constitutional rules   and   bylaws.     A selection  of an   adequate  leader and instructor   is   under   way  and in a couple of weeks or   so  when  the instruments arrive   they   will   be  ready for practice.   So far   a  general  appeal to the liberality of the' people  has not been made,as several donations  have been sent in. As,however,there is  yet something like   8150   lo   raise   to  finish paying for the   instruments, we  trust when  the collectors  go   around  they   will  be    treated    handsomely.  Many going into   the   band   have no  money of their own to spare;   and,  as,  they are giving their time to   enlivening the city and putting their hands in  their pockets to pay an instructor,that  is all that should be expected of them.  ' Any benefits arising lrom having a  creditable band in the piace.are shared  in by the public as a whole, and   they  should assist in'bearing the expenses  of the institution.    -  A committee of three townspeople  Ald��������� Crawford, Thos. Brown and  W. H. Lilly s has been appointed to  look after the instruments.  4  .BRIEFS.  With Scissors and Pen.  The Blue Bird  of ore.  has now a good body  Hiss Terry's Recital.  Silver Mines.  'Although the audience that greeted  Miss Jean Terry in Virgina hall on  Tuesday evening was small on account  of the unfavorable weather, those who  attended were thoroughly satisfied  with- the entertainment. Miss Terry  has hardly sufficient volume of voice  for declamatory recitations in a large  hall, but she is thoroughly master of  the art of mimicry. She at once  enters into the spirit of the odd characters she imitates, aud keeps her  audience in loud laughter from start  to finish. As a character sketcher she  is a success.  Miss Wilson gave a couple of songs  showing much culture in execution.  Mrs. McMartin sang a pathetic'song  with, marked effect. Her voice is par  tieularly suited to the class of music  she selected for that e.vening.__ ..���������   The orchestra,   consisting of^ Miss  Skinner, piano;   J. A. Griffith and 'J.  Duffy, violins ; J. B. Cliffe, cornet, sustained their share of the programme.  - ���������____-   AT THE  HOTELS.  It   will   encourage   the    struggling  miners in this part of the country who  have been hoping so many years for a  revival, in silver mining to  read   thc  following   from   the > Denver  Times :  The mining men   of  the   west   state  that there is a growing demand for silver properties from eastern  investors  and that this demand has grown   to   a  considerable   size   during    the    past  month.   They admit that even   before  there was some basis upon   which   to  found   the    belief    that   the   Indian  mints would   do   something   for   the  white metal, there was an   increasing  demand for such properties, but insist  that the present demand is above the  normal.   Copper properties have   felt  the impetus of better   times   for   the  past year, and here in Colorado the demand has been greater   than   at   any  time since the panic.   Others are  also  feeling thc offects of an increased   de-  mund.and from present indications  it  will not be long   until   the  good   old  times when fortunes were made in the  mines will again be with   us.     Those  who claim to be in a position to know  assert that thc investors in tho east are  shrewd enough to forsee that thc territory acquired by the United States   as  a result of the war will demand a   larger use of silver coin, and a  more extended currency.     With these points  m a basis these capitalists are   of  the  opinion that  silver  must   sooner   or  later stand abetter chance than it has  in the past.  ,Reco���������A W Mann, A E Osier, H J  Hanna, R Baker, H Bedlington, Toronto; W Bowness, D B Hill, T P Wilson, Vancouver; Hamilton Armour,  Victoria; Mrs C T Blackfan and son,.

At the mine itself  ore is r.ipidly accumulating in the  bins, no stoping is being done and the  ore extracted is taken out in driving  levels, patting in up-raises and other  necessary development work.  Mr. Woods thinks the Last Chance  tram will be well under way in a  month. A delay in the arrival of,  machinery is the reason for the extension of time. The ore house is about  completed, so the mine will soon be  shipping very extensively. This is  the mine on which Bailey once threw  up a small bond, as unpromising.  W. R. McKenzie, going up to the  Washington mine at McGuigan, called  at the office the other day and subscribed for The Review, a wise thing  to commence with. He says this  mine is going to start up at once under the management of the Witewater  with from 10 to 15 hands. The mine  has been worked satisfactorily, has  paid dividends, and is now in fair  order, though some time in disuse, for  successful operations again.  C. B. Taylor, of Ten Mile, has a good  thing on the head of north fork of Ten  Mile creek, near the divide, in his  claim called theJButte. Assays running as high as 291 ounces in silver  per ton have been obtained. The ledge  shows to be six feet wide with a paystreak of over a foot of clean ore. The  ledge has been traced for orer 3,000  feet and opened up in numerous  places. A cabin and trail hare been -  built, and it is the intention of the  owner to go ahead and make a mine  out of it.

THE   PLEBISCITE.  ,        Though at writing  we have not the  v figures  on the Plebiscite vote Thursday,   our  opinion  is  it has   carried.  Those who worked for the cause most  ardently will now conclude   they are  "to have prohibition ofl hand; but they  will be a most disappointed people���������  they need not look  for prohibition in  Cauada until the people become more  'educated   in its favor.    The   politicians played with the Manitoba school  1 question for years;   and the probabilities  are that  before the final settlement arrives, the issue   will be found  in effect just where it was  before Joe  Martin introduced his celebrated Bill.  Politicians     cannot   aflord    to   lose  votes and they are not going to do it,  if   wiggling  around   can   prevent   it.  - We should not now be a bit surprised  if there was a general Federal election  before the  House   meets.    With the  plebiscite   carried,   the   temperance  people would  doubtless go  Laurier,  believing  he  would pass  prohibitory  legislation at the first coming session ;  and the Grits would, of course,   vote  for  him  on political grounds.      He  would then have strong chances of a  new lease of power, and,   after election,  five  years with which  to   play  with  the   plebiscite  vote,   before   he  would be compelled  to act.     When  politicians do not like to face an issue,  they want it  at long range,   and  this  "revives the surmise that we may look  for a general election  before the holidays.  ists are employing some  very  curious  logic these days.    A contemporary oi  the latter class shows that  if prohibition were enforced we would lose  ten  millions a year in revenue, or two dollars per head of our population.  Well,  if prohibition meant prohibition, and  the evil eflects of liquor drinking could  be   stopped .for      $2     a     year    it  would     be     a   very     small     matter.    But the point is   this :   * Those  who look at the matter sensibly  know  prohibition will not prohibit, and more  especially along   the   'frontier   where  there is but a suveyor's   line   between  Canada and the States.    By adopting  the measure then we   will   have   the  evils of the traffic remaining   and   the  loss of the revenues   besides.    . It -is  surprising zealous prohibitionists   can  look at but the one side of .the   question at any time.  The   country  woman is usually  ���������^>^> healthy   and   ro-  '       bast.

The trouble with loo many country women is that they do not sufficiently realize  the supreme iniDoi tance of keeping healthy  in a womanly way.     A woman's general  health cannot be good if Siie suffers   from  local weakness and disease.

On the lead shipped from  Sandon alone last year at 55 per  cent., a low estimate, our mines paid  some $420,000 into the American  treasury, and on freight and treatment  some $500,000 more, or in round  numbers one million dollars altogether. It appears to us that our  American cousins  should   not  be   as  . exacting as this. We want the American market for our lead,' and no  amount,of tinkering with the Canadian tariff in duties on lead products  can secure it for  us.    It appears  to  "���������us, if it is fully represented at the conference now in session at Quebec, that  Canada is willing to give free access  to' this country to American mining  and other machinery to a reasonable  'equivalent, free importation of lead  ores to the States should be conceded,  and if it was it would mean the opening up at once of scores of properties  now either idle or undeveloped.  - The inadvisablity ot building a railroad'to the   Klondyke, such   as  the  Federal government sought to encourage a year ago, until the project  was  knocked on the head by the   veto   of  the Senate, is now growing more  and  more apparent every day.

The first message over the Canadian  Pacific Railway company's new transcontinental copper telegraph wire was  flashed from Montreal to Vancouver at  certain points. It passes via Vaudreil  and the short line to Ottawa and thence  by the main line to thc coast. Under  the general..superintendence it was  strung in three divisions. The first of  these was from Montreal to Fort William, the second from Fort William to  Donald, B. C, and the final division  from Donald to the coast, under thc  direction of J. Wilson, superintendent  of telegraphs.  The work was completed Wednesday  week at 5 p. m., when Inspector  Fletcher received the first message  over the new wire.

WILSON,  1 yr. Brooklyn, New York.  Zona Sheldon was making the European  Sour. Her education was finished, and she  uid her mother had spent tho last two  rears In travel. Zona's mother was a  wealthy widow, and Zona was an only  child.  Tlio important subject under discussion ���������  on  the  October   morning which   brings,  them to our notice is an invitation to bo  present at  tho -wedding in tlio north of  England.  But hero was a dilemma. Mrs. Sheldon  was so indisposed as to bo unfit for J>he  Journey.'yet sho did not wish Zona to stay  at homo. Mrs. Sheldon had a! firm belie-  that it was u perilous undertaking to  travel in a compartment car unless there  wero so many paspoiigcrs ' that there was  no possible danger of assault.  Morning saw our hcroino at the King's  Cross station anxiously scanning the carriages to make bum of ono well filled and  _t least one or two ladies in it. At last  she' saw one that met her requirements,  and, slipping a coin into tho hand of the  (ruard, she entered.  The train steamed out of tho station,  and Zona took a survey of her fellow travelers. Thero was a family���������father, MOthcr  and three children, an elderly lady, two  business men, and in one corner a roan  whom sho did not particularly notice.    -  For awhilo she looked out of the window,  admiring tho flying landscape. Then she  produced a book and began to read. Anon  a new sensation stirred within her. Sho  drow out her dainty little watch and looked  at it. Twelve o'clock and 20 minutes.  Two hours sinoo she had started.  She laid down the book and opened tho  little lunelibaskot; then she drew off her  gloves, tucked them in ,tho pocket of her  jacket und began to cat. Tho man in the  corner took this opportunity to read the  title of her book.  " 'Biglow Papers,' I know she's an  American. I can see it from the tip of  her noso to the toe of her littlo boot. I  didn't know before that eating was one of  tho flneui-ts."  Zona, all unconscious of his scrutiny,  finished her dinner, returned to her book  and fell asleep for awhile. Sho did not  know when sonio of the other occupants  of the compartment got out, and about 4  o'clock she was roused by hearing the  mother of tho family say: "Wake up now,  Tillel ��������� Wake tip! Wo got out at the next  station."       ,  Zona, looked about with a start to see  the October day darkening down and realize that when' tho family party should  leave tho train sho and tho man in tha  oorner would be the only occupants of the  compartment.  For a moment Zona was possessed with  an insane desire to scream, and only by a  strong effort controlled herself. The man  In the corner, who up to this time had not  moved from his seat all day, now rose and  walked to tho other end of the car.  Ho reached under the seat and took out  a small hand satchel, which ho opened.  Was fie going to got a revolver? No, it  would bo a knife. A revolver would make  too much noise. Sho watched him with  fascinated eye..  He took out something small and slipped  it into thc pocket of his coat. Soon he  ro<;e again and sauntered to the far end of  tho car. He lit a taper, bent down and  was engaged with something. What was  it?  Zona put her hand to tho window and  made a desperate effort to open it, that sho  might be l-eady to call tho guard. Tho  man heard and turned. Ho camo quickly  forward. "Allow me," he said.  "Oh, no, thank you," said Zona hastily.  Sho felt sure he had discerned her purpose, and that thero was a covert menaco,  in his tone.  "What a powerfully built fellow ho is!"  went her thoughts.' "What a villainous  countenance I One can see ho is a desper-  nte fellow. I am sure he Is looking at my  ring."  Now, the ring was a very beautiful diamond, given lo Zona by her mother, and  Zona, with a disregard of conventionality,  wore it on tlio finger which is usually set  apart to carry the signal of engagement. ���������  Therefore his thoughts wero: "Engaged! Well, T don't wonder. She surely is  tho loveliest girl I ever saw. I wonder  who tho happy fellow is? What can be the  matter with tier, though? Sho doesn't look  a bit like she did the first part of the day.  I've a notion to speak to her. An American girl isn't likely to bo so squeamish, as  a native.    Here goes."  "I beg your pardon," he said aloud.  You look wearied. * Do you go much farther?"    t  An Englishman "wouldn't speak without an introduction, thought Zona, if ho  hadn't some design.  It was some little time before the question was answered, for she was making u  calculation whether if she told him that  her journey's end was near ho would bo  likely to make tho best of his time and attack her immediately, or whether ho might  perhaps abandon his purpose altogether.  So Koine lime had elapsed in the uncertainty when sho said, "1 don't know, sir."  Zona again attempted to open tho window, and this time with success. Soon  the darkness increased and tho hollow  Minbling told lhat tho train had entered  a tunnel. All 'at once she felt a sharp  sting and a shriek from her mingled with  the yell of tho engine as it gave vent to  its joy at emerging into daylight again.  The man was at her side.  "I beg pardon for intruding. Aro you  hurt?" he asked anxiously.  Zona thought his anxiety was caused by  fear lest tlie guard might havo heard her  scream. At tlio same time she became  conscious that tlio pain was in her right  eyi. A cinder fr.m tho open window had  lodged in it.  "If you would let me  brain, and she shrieked out  come near _ao!"  "Poor thing!" thought the would be  Samaritan. '' Sho must suffer dreadfully.''  The man subsided into his corner and  VSona, with her eye fast swelling, bitterly  reponted her temerity in taking the journey.  And then came a long -whistle. The  man in the corner rose und snatched up his  satchel. The guard unlocked tho door.  "Newcastle, ma'am. You're at your journey's end." And he picked up her valise.  Will Zona Sheldon ever again know  such u sense of relief, or will any other  , faco ever be so welcome to her as was that  of tho burly guard as he made this announcement to her? She was safely on the  platform and a coachman, narrowly watching the passengers, stepped up to her saying, " Mr. Mowbray's carriage for Miss  Sheldon  '  "I am she," she said, in a voico which  her mother would not have recognized.  He opened the door and Zona, stepping  tnto the carriage, sank back on the cushions and burst into hysterical tears.  The man, who had been in the corner,  standing with his satchel in his hand, gave  a low whistle as the sight met his gaze  through the window. Walking forward to  tho coachman, ho said: "Give me a lift,  Riley.    I guess I'll rido with you."  "All right, Mr. John," said tho coachman, lifting up the satchel. "Come down  from Edinbro, sir?"  "Not directly, Riley.    Let me down at  the gate, and don't tell them'I'vo come.' I  want to have a bit of a joke with them."  "Hall right, sir."  "So that is the traveled young lady who  is to be bridesmaid tomorrow and stand  up with mo! If I'm not much mistaken,  sho will bo in no condition to stand up."  In Louise's snug room the prospective  bridesmaid recounted her woes and was  pitied nnd comforted und assured that she  should not bo allowed to go back alone.  "Cousin John Pierpont, who is going to  bo best man, is going down, and he will  sea you safely back. You know ho is an  American, a graduate in medicine and  has been studying in Edinburgh. He is going to spend this winter in the London  hospitals, and I know you will like him.  I hear a bustle now. I believo ho has come.  Will you excuse me till I go down and  see?"  "Oh, Louise, dear, you must excuse mo  from dinner. I can't go down with this  horrible black eye."  "Zona," said Louise as she came In  after dinner," Cousin John thinks you  had better let him examine your eyo.' He  says it is dangerous to let the inilamma-  .tion run on, and he thinks it will bo quito  well tomorrow if you get a good night's  rest."  "Woll,-if you wish.it. I don't want to  spoil your wedding, after all.''  "Miss Sheldon, my' cousin, Dr. Pierpont,," saiQ Louiso as she ushered in the  doctor. Zona, whose vision was much impaired by the sore eye, did not recognize  him as the man in tho corner. He merely  bowed.  ���������- "A clean pocket handkerchief, Louise,"  he said cheerily.  At tho sound of his voico Zona looked  up quickly. A twinkle shono in John  Pierpont's blue eyes.  "Now, Miss Sheldon, ono moment and  it is out," ho said.  "What instant relief!" exclaimed Zona.  "Thank you, doctor." '  "You are quite welcome," ho replied.  "By tomorrow I hopo yoii will have quite  forgotten it." "  There was littlo sleep that night for Zona Sheldon.  "What a little idiot I havo been I How  could I have imagined such things of him!  Ho is tall and powerful���������that was right.  , But dark and murderous looking. Why,  ho is fairer than I. What blue eyes and  what a pleasant smile I Oh, how can I  meet him in tho morning I I wish Louise  had not told him."  But sleep came at last, and Zona woko  radiant as ever. She dressed and went out  into the park to settle how sho should  meet Dr. Pierpont. But it was settled for  her. A sudden turn in the path brought  her face to face with him. She burst into  a peal of merry laughter, which ho echoed.  "Dr. Pierpont," she said, " I hope you  will bo merciful and keep my secret." ���������  "I am not likely to toll a secret so much  to my disadvantage. What was it? Villainous"���������  "Please, doctor," sho implored, "I did  not notico your looks at all. I had parted  with my senses."  Had not tho whole household been absorbed in the wedding, thoy must have  soen that thero was a secret understanding  between tho compatriots whloh quickly  ripened into intimacy.  "And Zona is to go back to London under your escort, John?" said Louise.  "Provided sho is not afraid to travel  wifch me," ho said, with a laughing bow to  Zona.  A smile was her only answer.  , They wero seated���������tho solo occupants of  a compartment.  "Now will you answer mo a question?  Had you made up your mind what to do  if worst came to worst?"  "Yes," she said, laughing. "I was going to take off my watch and ring and  offer thorn to you, as well as my purse. I  fancied you looked at my ring paritcular-  ly."  "I did," he said after apause, "because,  you know, thc finger you wear it on. May  I ask, Mi'.s Sheldon, if there is any particular significance in it?"  "It was given me^by ray mother," she  said simply.  "I am very grateful indeed,, Mr. Pierpont," said Mrs. Sheldon late in the evening, as the three sat in her parlor, "that  my daughter has had your company. I  never feel safe to have a lady travel unattended in a compart''���������  Hero.her auditors glanced at eaoh. othor  und burst into uncontrollable laughter.  Mrs. Sheldon looked amazed.  "Thereby hangs a tale, mother," said  Zona when she. had recovered her voice,  and she related the stoi-y.  "Miss Zona has omitted tho sequel,"  said Dr. Pierpqnt gravely, "which is that  I havo won from her a consent, subject to  your approval, lo be her protector, and  yours, too, for tho rest of our lives."���������Exchange.

THE MINING REVIEW.  !_., HI.  The  Governor of'the  Yictoria.  Colony, of  ' Lord Brassey, governor of the Colony  of Victoria, Australia, accompanied by  Lady Brassey, Miss Brassy, Henry  and Spencer Lyttleton, arrived from  the east to-day on a special car, after  making a leisurely tour of the continent. Lord Brassey is returning to Mel-  bonrae on the It. M. S. Miowera, sailing on Thursday. He has already  served three years of office in the colony of Victoria and is returning "after  a holiday/trip to England. s.  His Iord_hip2 was   met _b>   Colonel  Falk, Warren, and the two   gentlemen  "walked up to the Hotel Vancouver together, Lady Brassey and Missey driving.   Few recognized the   celebrated  ; British naval authority as   he   passed  vup Granville street.     There   was  one  thing to denote his love of the sea���������a  tie ringoffgold, representing n  coil of  ( rope, crossed by an anchor.   The party  did not register at the Hotel Vancouver, and immediately   proceeded   into  lunch.  . ,  His lordship kindly granted a Province.representative an interview and  cordially shook hands.  "I see that great prosperity  prevails  in the Dominion," he said.     -'We had  ;an easy trip across the Atlantic on the  ,^��������� Canard steamer Campania  and   came  ���������   across the continent in easy stages. , It  is a wonderful country and we enjoyed  the journey very much.   It is not   the  firt time which I have been' in   Vancouver.   I was here a   few   years ' ago  ,   for about two hours.   A great   change  is noticeable and   Ij understand   that  u    business has greatly improved on  the  1 Pacific coast.  "You ask as to the confederation   of  ,the  Australian   colonies. " Confederation is being more favorably  looked  .upon, except   with   the  exception   of  New South Wales.   That   colony   has  tried free trade and it undoubtedly has  been a success.   So New South   Wales  stands aloof.   But there is   a   feeling  'for the consideration of Victoria.South  Australia and Tasmania.     The  three  stages might be represented by a federal council, which   might   be   charged  with the important   task   of  defence.  " The present state of the public  mind  is that step by step be taken   towards  the consummation.   Thc   progress   of  Canada under confederation has   been  watched,   and   a   parallel   has    been  pointed out by the   Dominion.     Vic-  'toria is prosperous,    tier   debts   have  been wiped out by" consolidation   and  country is on a fust   footing.    It   will  never be a wheat   exporting   country  again, but it is shipping vast quantities  of butter to England.   Last , year   the  exports of butter-were over ������1,000,000.  The establishment of creameries   has  done much to encourage the industry,  lam n great, believer  in   irrigation  and a strong advocate ol   the   country  surrounding the   Murray river  being  irrigated.   Indeed I would Jike to  see  it made a second Egypt.     There  are  8,OOO;00O acres   of  land , in ��������� Victoria  which might be irrigated.  "While I think that imperial penny  postago will be ������ good thing, we hear  little of it in Australia. The people  arc not great letter writers to England,  but the number of papers received is  enormous. Australia is not receiving  many colonists from Great Britain,and  most of the people have been residents  for many years. A newspaper saves  much time instead of'writting.  "Do you hear much out here about  closer relations between Great Britain  and the United States ?" asked his  lordship.  Lord Brassey was informed that the  matter had received a great deal of discussion. -'  "I am a great believer in closer relations between, the two countries," he  continued, "and do not see any reason  for further differences between Great  Britain and the United States. There  should be no need of -formal treaties  to perpetuate the understanding already existing."   ���������  -With a hearty hand-shake, his lordship'bid the interviewer good day, but  not.'before asking as to the latest news  from Omdurman, Lady Brassey re-  rnarkinjfthafthey were quite behind  Ihe'timcs since they had been travel  ling.���������Vancouver Province.  50C. 50C.

Its Advantages as a Distributing,  ���������$������  - . - Center.  Rosebery is the only town in Kootenay having  both railroad and steamboat connection that can  ship goods daily to ten different towns, whereby the  shipper can see his wares leave his hands and that  they will be received by the consignee within two  hours.  Its Advantages as a Railroad Center.  Rosebery enjoys  the  position of king oi  the   '  funnell as it were, for the railroad business of the  whole of the Koolenays.    All ore and matter'for    ,  shipment from Nelson, Trail Creek and the Slocan '  must, and is now passing out this way to the main  line of the C. P. R., as well as all goods coming  in from Revelstoke to tlie Kootenay country.  NOTE. To substantiate this : The C. P. R.  are now putting in track weigh scales at Rosebery,  the first and only scales that has been put in on any  of the C. P. R. branches in Kootenay���������which  goes to show the importance of this point by the  Canadian Pacific Railway Company's actions.  Its Advantages as a Steamboat Point.  Rosebery claims, without opposition, of being  the only junction on thc lake, unlike Slocan City, _  where you can step ofl the steamer, to a waiting ���������'  train and continue your journey.    You can take  either a north or south train at this terminus; con-  *���������  sequently Rosebery is the best transient town in'  the  race.    Nervertheless we claim Slocan City  second in importance, and would say' watch the  head and foot of Slocan Lake, viz.���������  ROSEBERY AND SL0C6N CITY.  Its Advantages as a Manufacturing   ���������  Center.  As a manufacturing center Rosebery claims to  have demonstrated the fact that after the careful  observation of the Denver (Colorado) Ore Coy's  manager, as the natural advantages of all points in  Kootenay for the treatment of ores the cheapest,  Rosebery was selected, and they now are erecting  works, with a capacity of 250 tons per day, which  will be in operation within 90 days; and it is their  intention to pay out monthly in the vicinity of  $100,000. I might also add Rosebery has the  largest water power from Wilson river flowing into  Slocan Lake.  AS TO GLIM ATE.  Rosebery claims the mildest climate on Slocan  Lake, from its admirable southern exposure and  absolute shelter from the north; snow always  leaves the place about the 15th of March.  AS A TOWNSITE.  As a town site, Rosebery is without a peer. It  is possessed of all the flat land available at the  mouth-of the Wilson river leading to the valley-  mining region���������consequently there is no danger of  any contagion. The title is a Crown Grant and j-  is perfect. All purchasers of lots are safe in this  respect. The only safe speculative townsite in the  Slocan is Rosebery.  Why should I say the only safe speculative town-  site in the Slocan ? Because Rosebery business  lots to-day are only $150 to $200 each and are  bound to inciease rapidly this summer. These  figures can, and will, double before long. The  time to buy is now. Don't wait till they are from  $700 to$r,ooo, asyou did in Slocan City last May,  go in on the giound floor and make a few dollars  in speculation : if you want to invest go to Van-  couvci 01 Winnipeg ; if you want to speculate and  and clean up money go quick to Rosebery before  lots are out of sight.  What's Wanted in Rosebery.  Wc want a rc3l iiunnl.  Wc want a good hotel light aw. \.  We want a fiist-class general store.  We want a butcher shop.  Anyone looking for an opening spy out this  place at once.  , Maps and price-lists on application; prices run  from $75 to $200.  TERMS : One-third cash, balance 3 and 6  months. For actual builders special teims can be  arranged for a few lots by applying to  , l' ,p.%--i,l  '- -v3$_  " --Ml  y.  ',vCra:  ���������A V--���������i .

Mr. Tuck, of Kaslo, has been appointed a gold commissioner. Wc
have not heard anything of the success of his partner, Mr. Nip, and Nip
and Tuck have been associates for a
long time. However, Mr. Tuck ought
to make a good officer.,
Cure that cough with Shiloh's Cure.
The best cough cure. Relieves croup
promptly. One million bottles sold
last year. 40 doses for 25 cts. Sold at
McQueen's Drug Store.
Mr. C. M. Wilson, the local aisayer,
gives a bit of information worth
money to mine owners and prospective
investors in this part of the country.
The information is that his assays
from the older properties go to show
that later operations develop a richer
ore than those of years ago. With
wealth increasing as depth is reached,
we have an assurance that the Slocan
is here to stay as a mining district for
many years to come.
Chief Doolan is fitting up his building, next The Review office, in elegant
style for a court room and dwelling,
which he will in due season christen
"Tara's Hall." The ground around is
levelled up with gravel, and we will
expect to see next season "peatees"and
the shamrock blooming in the "'patch
behint." The old building is boin_
flitted up with cells. After this, you
will have ,to take off your hat when
you enter thc court room.
Mr. Sewell, in his long lettei last
week, as far as can be gathered from
it, acknowledges that non-firemen occasionally have access to the appliances a'nd do not always leave them in
order. Well, if an irregularity occurs
in this way, the public do not discriminate but place the consequences on
the brigs.de. We are fully aware that
the men deserve every consideration
at the hands of the public and fully
receive it; but the incident calls for
some change that will place all appliances within the reach of firemen
only, under all circumstances.

Nothing did Mr. R. E. Pitt
any good until he got
Doan's Kidney Pills.
Throughout thc County of Leeds and
the Town of Rrockville there is no medicine -poken so highly of lor all lcimU of
Kidney Diseases as Doan's Kidney Pills.'
A_ Canada's pioneer kidney pill, introduced
by Mr. James Doan, of King'sville, Ont,,
in 7SS5, they stand to-day far superior
to all tlie imitations and sub.litulos that
have been offered the public in their stead.
Mr. R. E. Pitt, the well-known contractor and builder, voices "these sentiments when he says, " I have had kidney
trouble for years. I had tried numerous
remedies without much relief, and had
given up my back as gone for good, but
since using Doan's Kidney Pills the result
has been marvellous! The pain is all
gene. I feel like a new man, and can
highly testify to the virtues of Doan's
Kidney PHI.."
