 VOL. 4.���������NO. 20.  SANDON, B. C, OCTOBER 27, 1900.  $2.00 PER YEAR.  THE LOCAL GRAFT.  II  h  Eli Taylor has been appointed a school  trustee.  The spar to the Ivanhoe concentrator  under way.  There is more mud than money in  Sandon just now.'  Silver is now quoted   at  65 cents, the  highest figure since 1890.  '     W. J. Pierson has a couple  of   com-  r^fortable houses for sale cheap.  |-r VjsSunnyside is likely to'have a sidewalk  again aa far as the echool-houee.  The Yukon district coiinoil^has elected  ������i opponents to the present system of raan-  i\j agement.  Teachers and pupils have now taken  possession of the new school. The seats  are now in.  The French company has cabled the  money to pay the men at Camp Mansfield, and Mansfield is now liberated.  At the assizes in Nelson this week.  Hocking, the Moyie bigamist, was sentenced to 3 years at New Weatminter.  The passenger trains of the C. P. R.  will will shortly come in on tlie west  side of the new depot, to the delight, of  many.  The big Pennsylvania coal miners'  strike is likely to be declared off at any  moment, the differences being nearly  adjusted.  The Industrial World, published at  Rossland, calls John Houston "a traitor  to labor unions." It has* got to beeithcr  slavery or a traitor.  A Lumber of carpenters and other  mechanics are likely to leave the city  before long, as the building boom, of the  Eeasoii is now nearly over. .' - v - ^--,.  Young Chenoweth, accused of. shoof-  ing a Chinaman at 'Rossland last summer, was acquitted at the assizes, the  jury finding him not guilty.  C. L. Alvord, a cashier, stole a million  dollars from the First National Bank,  New York, and he' vill probably get a  six months' sentence for it.  Two Finlanders in a beastly state of  intoxication, showed revolvers on the  6treet Tuesday night. They were arrested and fined $25 each next day.  Mr. Brown has completed plans for  <our new city hall. They are in tlie  hands of the government awaiting a decision, before anything can be done."  The union Sabbath school of Sandon  will be held in the upper flat of the new  school, commencing tomorrow (Sun-lay)  at 2:30, and thereafter until further  notice.  The Methodists will hold service in  the red building lately vacated by Mr.  Nas>h tomorrow (Sunday) morning and  evening, and there after until the new  church is completed.  A telegram from New Denver informed the chief of police Wednesday that a  Dago who smashed windows, there was  on the train, When the train reached,  however, he was non est.  The Methodists have decided to change  their original plans for a church building. They received tenders Tuesday  night, but all of them were too high for  the purse of the committee.  Mr. Trueman has leased the rear of  the upper flat of the Cliffe block for a  term of years, and is having a model  photograph gallorv arranged thereon.  There are a few more rooms to rent in  the building that will make very comfortable and convenient offices. The  rental is not at all extortionate, and the  locality the best in tbe city.  Our city council aro still wrestling  with the street lighting problem. Thc  city needs the service badly, and the  best thing the council can do is to aseer-  what other places pay for what they require, and if accepted by the company  that ends it. If the light company  refuse that ofl'er, let them call the taxpayers together and submit the situation  to "them for a solution.  R. J. Broddy has removed from here  to Nelson.  The Sandon laundry is likely to put  in a steam plant.  Mrs. Ganty has "returned home from a  trip to the south.  The Rev. Yates has removed from  New Denver to Golden.  E. C. Chipman, of Kaslo, was in the  city a few days on business.  The Misses McKinnon returned Saturday from a visit to Nelson.  Wm. Harrington, ot Sloean, spend a  few days in Sandon this week.  Mr. and Mrs. J. Vallance went down  to NelEon, this week, for a visit.  Fred. Buckholy, steward on the Sloean, has got a divorce from his wife.  Alex. Stewart, a real estate man of  Nelson, has gone to Toronto to reside.  C. Gales has removed his barber shop  to the Balmoral building, and is now  ''soaping it up" in dead earnest.  Sandon is to have a Chinese laundry,  it is said. The Chinamen will, of course,  remain as long as they are pat ionized.  Mayor Goodeve, of Rossland. is expected shortly to speak on behalf of the  Conservative candidate, A. H. McNeill.  H. A. Macdonald, a deaf prospector,  was run over by an engine at Rossland,  on Wednesday, and both feet were cut  off. -,  H. B. Alexander returned from the  N. W. Ter:itorii-s on Saturday, where  he had been overlooking rnutters on a  large ranch lie lia^ (here.  The council have decided on a petition  to build a sidewalk on Reco avenue  from the Sandon hotel to Byers' store,  which is very much needed.  .The council have decided to extend  the flume iu the,west end of the-city,  and also repair the damage dono it by  the lire near the C. P. R. track.  The public now see the necessity for  encouraging and supporting a fire brigade, as a cent of insurance cannot be  got by anj'one in the absence of a fire  company.     i ���������  About 200 Indians are starving 150  north of Agassiz. They caught no salmon this year, their potatoe crop has  failed, and their cattle have been drowned by the floods.  Esmer, Wallace, who used to be a C.  P. R. agent on the Crow's Nest branch,  was arrested at Sloean Junction the  other day for embezzlement at a former  post.  Frank Clarkin, one of the best brake-  men running out of Nelson, has been  promoted. He now has charge of a  freight train on the Nakusp & Sloean  branch.���������Tribune.  Wm. Hennessy, who located some of  the oldest and best mines in the Sloean,  and who since wandered over the one-  half of creation, is again back in the  Sloean looking over the field again.  Messrs. Karr & Wilson are going to  build residences on Sunnyside yet this  winter, G. VV. Grimmett aud J. Woods  are wrestling with stores, the foundations of which are just finished, and the  Methodists are goiug to tackle a church  building.  The public will please bear all imperfections in this paper for a week or two  until we gel into our new building and  get matters in shape. All mechanics are  rushed at this season, but tins does not  lessen the difficulty of running a newspaper in an open tent at this season of  the year.  Notwithstanding the criminations  and recriminations between Architect  Balmain and Contractor McLachlan,  the new school building has been finished contrary to much prophecy. We do  not know whether tho contractor made  or lost money on tho job; but wo do  know he has put up a splendid building  and ono whoso finish must be satisfactory to all persons interested. The  new seats are. now being put in, and  when painted, the building will be one  of the best in the province.  fllNES AND niNING.  Rubv silver has been found on the  Emily Edith.  Ernest Mansfield has bought the marble quarry near Kaslo.  ,   The   Speculator  claim   will' have 20  man at work this winter.  ' 'The  Whitewater   mine   shipped  172  tons of ore the past week.  The Ymir Mine is now paying the prevailing wages of this district.  The Hewett, at New Denver, is likely  to become a heavy shipper soon.'  Tho Iron Hor6e, on Ten Mile, has  been bonded by a Spokane company. ���������  The St. Eugene mine at Moyie, iB  turniDg out 100 tons of concentrates a  day.  Sandon orcshipments this week were:  Payne, 245; Last Chance, 79; Ruth,  66.   Total 390 tons.,  The Wakefield is being thoroughly examined by an expert, at the suggestion  of the English owners.  W. Alpherson, an old timer in the  Sloean, is likely to buy some' properties  here and in the Lardeau.  The Ivanhoe concentrator is now  ready to start up at any time, and when  started, barring accidents, will be a  heavy, steady grinder.  It is now more than likely that the new  company will acquire the Fletcher property near Whitewater, aa a second  payment has been made on it.  Alex. Sharp, a mining engineer of  Rossland, has been in the camp the past  week, looking over some mining property for the Burns-Wilson syndicate.  ,  . There are 663 acres of land in the Condor "and Bosun properties on Sloean  Lake, and over two miles of a mineralized vein located. How many more  miles there are unknown it is hard to  say.  Development work goes steadil}' on at  the Ajax. A contract has just been let  for 450 feet of tunneling and upraising  tlie vein on No. 6 level, the greater part  of said distance being through the ore  body exposed in No. 5.  The Nooday mine at Silverton, another property that paid the large wage  for the short day during the lockout,  and whose manager used to say could do  it with profit, is in serious financial difficulties ; and it is a. question if the ownership is not changed all around before  all is over.  silver and 5.1G per cent. lead. All work  on the property has been suspended  pending the completion of the deal.,  A Bureau of Statisticts.  R. E. Gosnell has been appointed  secretary of the bureau of statistics for  the province. The bureau will collect  information relating to mining, labor,  agriculture, health, shipping, railways,  municipalities, education, building,  finance, insurance and other matters.'  Candidates for the Commons.  Some very fine ore is now being taken  out at the Palmita mine, and tlie property gives every indication of becoming  ono of the largest producers of this district, late development having demonstrated that. The Queen BeBs vein carries good values on Palmita, and also  that another large vein crosses the property from which ore is now beiug  mined.  The Mountain Con group will, in all  probability, soon bo turnad over to London capitalists at a good figure. The  group consists of five claims, the Mountain Con and Costic, which were bonded  from J. A. Whittier last July, and the  Granite Mountain, Silver Lake and Silver Lake Falls, which were located by  W. W. Warner since that time. The  formation in which the claims are  located is granite. They are almost on  the divide between the north fork of  Carpenter Creek and the south fork of  Kaslo Creek. Properties in this belt  have not received much attention until  lately, and at the time work was commenced on the Mountain Con its prospects were not considered very promising. Development has proved different,  however. Since July 20th the vein has  been opnned up by two tunnels, show-,  ing a continuous shoot from three to 18  inches of ore, tho property being virtually a grass-roots payer. Three cars  of ore havo been shipped during the  summer, the last one averaging 247 ozs.  The following candidates have been  nominated in the various constituences  of the province:  Yale-Cariboo������������������W. A. Galliher, Liberal; A. H. MacNeill, Conservative;  Christopher Foley, Labor.  Victoria���������George Riley and Richard  L. Dmry, Liberal; Thomas Earle, M. P.  and Hon. E. G. Prior, M. P. Conservatives.  ' Vancouver Island���������William Sloan,  Liberal; John Bryden, Conservative;  Ralph Smith, Independent-Labor.  Bur'rard���������G. R. Maxwell, Liberal;  James F. Garden, Conservative.  Westminster-^Aulay Morrison, Liberal; Edgar Dewdney, Conservative;  Will MacCain, Socialist-Labor.  To the Business Men and Residents  of Sandon.  The Methodist congregation of this  town is making an effort to build a  house of worship that will cost about  #1,700, when completed. A parsonage  has already been purchased at a cost of  $950, and.tho lot upon which our church  will be erected cost $500. Upon these  properties - there is some indebtedness,  but we wish to open our church without  any encumbrance upon it whatever.  Knowing that the fire must have seriously affected the resources of many  persons, we have dpcided not to make  an individual appeal. We do not wish  to tax your well-known liberality, but  we would at the same time beg leave to  urge that our enterprise receive your  attention, and whatever support you  feel inclined to give.  Any contributions will be thankfully  received by the members of our Trustee  Board, and acknowledged in our repot ts  issed quarterly.  A. M. S.vxnronD,  Chairman of Board.  G. H. Smeoluv.

Tho Labor candidate, Mr. Foley, assisted by Mr. Wilkii,' held a meeting  heie Saturday evening, in the Miners'  Union hall, the iiist meeting held in the  building, and addiessed a laige gathering, notwithstanding the unlavoiable  state of tbe weather. Mr. Foley is a  fair, avei age speaker, for a man of his  calling, and with better education and  moie knowledge of legislation and  politicial histoiy of the country in the  past, would be a good, average btumper,  as stumpeibgo in Canada, ilo was not  baekwaid in tcliing the people he was  in the old politics a Libeial; and we  fully believe, if elected, he would be  just as useful to Mr. Launer as any  other man the constituency might  send down, as he would in al! essential  points be a voter with him.  He attacked the Conseivative party  ti lily, but eeitainly not justly, as; he le-  pp.ited again they paid the C.P.R. &100,-  000,000 in land and nionev to  build the load. The htatisticts fchow the  payment in cash was but !r77,000,000  and the land subsidy at the tune il was  given was voith nothing. A man in  buying, a colt does not pay for it what  the hoise may be woith in after ycai������.  Foi the same ieti=on the piice for the  hind ghen the C.P.R. must not be i.ited  at what it lb now worth through the  eoustiuction of the load, but what it  was worth at the time���������meiely a nominal  iiguie. But Mi. Foley could not face what  the Conservative paity ever did for the  w oi king men���������he could not fcee=ince <on-  icdciafion theyspeiH!pl7o,000,000i)iie way  and another in public woiks, the one-  half ot which was paid out in wage",  neither could he see the National policy  lias kept 25,tX)0 extia mechanics at woik  since it was inaugurated in IS79, nor  yet that under it (ea and e< H'ce, and  many othor necessities v ere made fiee,  and others biought to a meie levenue  basis.  Jt appeals to u" also if lie spent fhe  time he took up in etiticising some of  the official acts of Mayor Goodeve, of  Rossland, who is neither one of the  tioveinment, nor acandidate, noi in any  way whatevei in issue, in explaining to  his audience, what he would do, if  elected, for labor, his time would have  been much better employed.  We are free to admit much legislation  might be passed at Ottawa that would  help theindustiial elassesof thecountn ,  but certain it is Mr, Foley in his  speech outlined none of it. Laboiing  men and otheib should remember  abusing the old paitiea, for alleged mistakes:, is not showing what could and  should be done for labor.  However, we intend to say but little  one way or the other in the present  campaign. As a matter of fact, in passing, as a public journalist, we deem it a  duty, to couect mistakes made by any  speaker, to that the people may have  befoie them the tiuth as neaily as  possible, and then form convictions and  conclusions for themselves.

FAT    AND    LEAN  That is, babies: fat, they are  happy and safe; lean, they are  neither happy nor safe.

The road was repaired last year  and frequently since, so the B. C.  government let a contract lo fix the  whole roud properly. The contractor  had to plank, krib and bridge in places,  besides cleaning away heavy mud slides  which came down from the K. ct S.  track. The road is now in first-class  condition.  NOTICE.

In the   Algoma   district Canada has  one of the most marvelous deposits of  iron ore that has ever been  discovered.  Il, is now ktiown as the Helen mine and  isI situated 12. miles   from   the Michipi-  coten harbor on the northeast  shore of  Lake Superior.   Three years ago it was  discovered by Robert  Sayers and Benjamin Boyer, who  located-it while prospecting for   gold,   Little realizing, the  immense  valuu of  lheir discovery they  sold the mountain to F. H. Clergue.who  gave them $500, thc price they asked,  and .f75 per month each during the term  of their natural lives.    Sayers died in a  few months, and Boyer is enjoying the  fruits of their united efforts, residing in  Sault Ste. Marie, Ont.  It is a mountain of Bessemer iron ore,  GO per cent,  puie, and  is characterized  as "the   most   amazing   thing   in  iron  mining   in   the history of   the western  hemisphere." They have 27,000,000 tons  of ore blocked   nut, and   every ton represents a profit of ^2 or better to the company.    The ore is taken out by qnairy-  uten working   in   the   open   air.   JIo'w  many millions of tons of ore is concealed  back in tho mountain beyond the depth  already explored, or in the depths below the lake, no man  knows.    The ore  is carried to the ore dock in pressed steel  cars which hold 55 tons. each.   It is tlio  intention  of   the  Clergue   company to  ship annually 3,000,000tons of ore, G00,-  000  tons  of which will  be  used at the  blast 'furnace which will  be erected at  the Canadian Soo, to supply material for  the steel rail plant already arranged for  there.

As between cyanide and barrel chlo-  rinatiob.process, the greatest difference  in cost after roasting lies  in tlio amount  and   value   oi   chemicals   used     The  chemical   cost   in   clilorination    would  vary from 50 to 70 cents   per   ton:   in  cyaniditig from 25 to 45   cents   per ton.  While     this    fragmentary     statement  would appear to indicate  that clilorination  would  be dearer, other elements,  such as coarser  crushing   for   clilorination, and per centage of saving, would  offset such implication.   Tlie  difference  would   require   some  space to explain,  and  as  for comparison   that   need   no  longer   be   instituted.   The   ore   itself  should determine the process, and that  can be best learned by experience.
