Array VOL 3.      NO. 13.  SANDON, B. C, SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 2, 1899.  FIVE CENTS.  a  I WAR GL  Skirmish With the Boers Seems  Certain How.  '.."' London,   August 30���������The   Pretoria  ���������correspondent ..oi' . tho   Morning  Post  '.-'��������� says/The Boer officials,  after reading  tho cabled reports of Mr. Chamberlain's  Birmingham speech,,consider,that war  is inevitable.   Tlie Boers are now all  armed except those in  Johannesburg.  There. comrnissiarial,,   ia . fairly   good  and allthe forts  are amply victualled,  j.

(.President .Kruger does not  hesitrtja- to  : express the opinion that war is inevit-  .  able.   He has stocked��������� tlie  presidency  with ample supplies of provisions   to  secure his own .person   from privation,  ,'. and-'.'.hc is ; often heard repeating   the  73rd psalm. yS  .���������;:'' The Boors are energetically engaged  in poisoning' the minds of the natives  against the British, and they have approached the.Zulu chief Dinizulu, who  appears undecided what cause to espouse. Bur. the .Zulus are prepared for  the expected lighting,-and it must be  reniberod that Dinizulu wasdeported  to St. Helena with several other chiefs,  and kept, there a prisoner by the British for several years. The Time3 says  editorially this morning: "There is the  .������������������best'reason., to believe that the recent  note of Mr. Chamberlain will be almost the last occasion on which Great  Britain . will ask -President Kruger if  he is in earnest in his promises of com:  cessions.,, The note undoubtedly called  for an immediate answer, and when, a  reasonable tihie for answer has elapsed  Great Britain will no longer pay much  attention to president Kruger, but. will  former'.-her judgement by His actions.  The Boers should, bear, in mind that  throughout the whole controversy the  Cologne Gazette has warned the Transvaal thai it was placing itself in an unfavorable position, and . that, in the  event of war, nobody would lift a linger to prevent .the destruction of the  republic. --:  London, August 31.���������Tho Daily Mail  says it learns that a largo consignment  of cartridges for the Boers has recently  .been'shipped'through German agents.  These, it says, Were manufactured in  England.  traced on the surface for a d'slance of  300 feet.

The samele'dge haBheen found on the  properties as,on the Standard group,'  and the outlook here is equally .bright  as on tho Standard.

Taylor has just returned from a visit to the Upper Duncan river, at a point 30 miles above  Duncan City. His mission was to look  after tho Standard group, which is  being operated by the Standard Gold  Mining company, and of the group  which is being operated by the Imperial Gold Mines of British Columbia.  These properties lie alongside of each  other and the same veins run through  each.  In speaking of tho Standard group,  Mr. Taj lor said there are two claims  in the groti}). There are seven meu  at work crosscutting and sinking. A  ledge of ore has been struck that is  three feet in width and carries gold,  silver and lead, and the ore averages  $90 to the ton.   The ledga has  been  Crops in the Okanagan country have  been much hurt by the late rains.  Fred Johnston, a farmer on Gilbert  Plains, Man., shot and killed his wife,  three,children and himself, on Sunday  last.  Tho Mountain Lion mine in Minnesota is said to be the largest shipper of  iron ore in the world. It daily ships  ore to the amount.of S.000 or 11,000  tons.  Eor want of miners,' thc copper output in Lake Superior district fell off  last month. Quincy's output was 700  tons less than the previous month, and  the Osceola mines showed a similar  decrease.  Three new companies for the development of nickel mines in Sudbury  district have commenced work. One  of,them has a cheap process of treating  nickel, and is putting a small plant up  for this purpose.  After much discouragement a Toronto firm, has struck an even vei������. 'of  mica 20, feet wide in Frontenac. The  mica wiilcut up to Sx 10 inches. A  cutting shop is to be started this fall in  Toronto.

Chicago, Aug. 2S--���������Twelve steel  arches, each wenjrning 33 tons, which  were to havo supported the superstructure of the Coliseum building, in  course of erection on Wabash avenue,  between lath and 14th .streets, fell to  the ground late this afternoon: It is  known that six lives were crushed out.  The bodies of .three men are supposed  to bo under the wreckage. Seven are  in the hospitals from injuries received  in the accident, and of these two will  die. One tuny possibly recover, and  the rest are for. the gre'ater part seriously injured.  The late Colonel Ingorsoll was riding  in a street car one day, when the Rov.  DcW.itt Taltnage got in, and they presently fell into an argument. F'inally  Ingorsoll said: "Then you would like  to live in a place, brother Till mage,  where every one-'had''to be good by  law?" "Certainly," said Talinage.  "You would like to live- where every  one had to go to church regularly  every Sunday I" "Yes. that would suit  inc." "Where no man could get a  drink' and swearing was not permitted '!" "Yes, that's the place for me."  "And where every man would have to  keep regular hours?" "That would be  heaven and earth," said Talinage, smiling and striking his knee with nisopeu  palm. "Well," said Bob, looking over  his glasses, "you'd better go up to Sing  Sing.    That's the way they do there."

Auditing the Flume Accounts.  CHTJllCIi    NOTES.  The council have Messr3. MoArthur  and Wood auditing the flume ���������accounts  preparatory to 'payment, of debts   incurred in   that connection, out of the  proceeds of the debentures sold.   They  are   both capable   men;  .but we  fear  their, instructions    do   not   go    deep  enough  into  tho  case to satisfy public-suspicion in the matter.   It is not  alone to Olid accounts and vochers correspond  that  an audit is desired, but  mainly  to see how the  accounts   are  made up, and, whether or not,   any of  laslyeaVs aldermen were beneficiaries  in   the transaction.    Somo appear to  think   the lumber accounts arc very  heavy.    'I o settle  that, the lumber in  one rod of the Hume should be measured, and- that liiuling  multiplied  by  tlie number of rods  in thc structure,  making the  usual  allowance for cuttings,  should show if the total  found  and   the accounts correspond.    Again,  some'people say   it may   be possible  that several  parties, paid personal .indebtedness   to  some   of   the   council  through work   on   the   Hume.     Tins  ought to be looked into as no councillor can. use  his position in any  such  way.    For our part we know ol nothing  irregular in the whole work, and there  may not   have been;   but   the   audit  should have gone into the  root of the  matter to set all grounds for suspicion  in every, quarter fully at rest.  The Rev. J. Calvert, of Trail, made  a short visit at the parsonage last  week. Hu occupied tho pulpit of. the  Methodist church on Sunday, delivering two eloquent sermens.  Mr. J. A. Hoffmeyer, who had bucIi  a narrow escape on the Edmonton  trail when shoemaker Hoffman was  drowned, is going off to niany distant  parts again next week, and will be absent until spring.  Mr. Krackenberg, son-in-law of Mr.  Warner, who was here in the spring for  a time, has returned from Spokane  with his family and will engage in  ruining with Mr. Warner., He has purchased the hous.e on the east hill, formerly owned by Byron Sharpe.  The Rev. E.J. Devme.S. I., of St.  Mary's College,. Montreal, spent,-Saturday,.Sunday and Monday in the city  getting information about our mineral  resour-ies. He visited the Payne, the  Noble Five and other properties, and  finished up his statistics by calling on  The'Review.

On Wilson-Creek.  The  creek  mines and prospects of Wilson  are now accessible and can be  reached without taking a pack on your  back and clambering over logs and  through the brush as formerly. A trail  has just been built by the government  to the forks of the creek, a distance up  from Rosebery of 17 miles.

Eorty tons is the total for the ore  sent out from the lake region the past  week. This ore consisted of two car  loads shipped from Silverton to .the  Trail smelter by the Noonday mine of  this place.'. This brings the total shipments for the'year from this property ������������������  up to -ISO tons,' and brings the amount :  of oro shipped from Silverton, since  tho first of the present year, up to .1568  tons. All ores so far shipped from this  point have been heavy galena ores, and  it is safe to say that it has averaged  150 ounces in'silver and over 40.per  cent, lead per ton, so that the ralue of  the amount ofwealth that the mines;  of Silverton aro contributing to the.  world can be easily estim .ted.���������Silver-,  touiah. ;  Sandon Ore Sliipments/  The following is a list of ore shipments over tho K. tt S. from Sandon  for tho week, ending September! :  .mink.                                        . tons.

Save the Babies.  HOW IT IS.  Somo of the papers of the province,  the gulchite included, are copying an  article from the Toronto Tolegiam, of  which tho following is a section :  "British Columbia journals and British Columbia .nine owners must know  their own business,  and  their actions  indicate that they have sot  an unduly,  high  value on  the mines, whicfjjare  .'���������   working so,'close  to the margin that a  . difference' of two hours a day .means  the difference between profit and loss.  British Columbia   mine   owners  have  been dealing with the'! Easterninvest-  ors as if their properties were araai-  ,...'.- iuglyrich.   Some of these mine owners  give tbe'iie to their own pretenses by  professing   that   their mines will'not  pay under an eight-hour basis."      ���������: '"  With, all due respect to the intelligence of lhe Telegram wc .may say the  owners of shipping properties'";do not-  raise the question  of ability or   non-  ability, to pay the increased.wages'; it  is the principle involved that they, are  contesting..   Up to the   last session of  ' the Housc,the Slocan owners were pay-  .    ingi-SS.oO  for ten-hour shifts   by  day  and nine hours by night, or  what was  not more  than nine hours all around.  " The men were perfectly satisfied with  ,   the .payment, .and   the   owners   were  equally satisfied to make it.    Without  a day's notice.a legislature, that desires  to capture, the industrial .-vote of-the'',  province" by purchase instead of wise  legislation,   passed   a   law subjecting  employers for hiring.' and the men for  working longer than eight hours underground to penalties.   The owners say  that when ������3.50 was acceptable wages  : for ten hours' work $3.00 is good pay for  eight hours,the matter of the ability of  the mines to pay more having nothing  whatever to do with! the question.   The  men contend that they caii do as much  -work in the short shift as they  formerly did  in the, long one, which  com-  ��������� rnon Bense and every day!results, since  the law was passed, show conclusively  is not the case.  We,will, however, give the Telegram  a��������� home , illustration that will-better  elucidate the case. Supposing tne  wages now paid to compositors in Ontario were 30 cents per 1,000 ems, and  that the Ontario legislature, unaskeu  : by anyone, and, moreover, without  consulting the publishers, passed a law  constituting S00 ems 1,000, would the  publishers continue right along paying  the 30 cents, or would they be disposed  to offer 24'?,, The Telegram is said to  be one of the best paying papers in  Canada, and would it not feel disnosed  Thousands of them die every summer who could be saved by the  timely use of Dr. Fowler's Ext.  of Wild.

Or would it  meekly say we will continue paying  ing paying the 30 cents and lor 600  ems; if the legislature later on makes  that number 1,000? This is the point  in a   nutshell.   It is  but just,   how-  " ever, to say that even the printing business would not be as badly affected by  such an untoward law as the mines pf  this province are by the B. C. enactment, for one substantial reason. In  both instances.the disposition is to run  both branches of by labor unions,and in  Ontario no man can join the printers'  ueion unless he has served a certain  length of time at the business and is,  at the trade, a fair average man, while  in the Slocan there are many men in  the miners' unions who have been but  . a few months at the business, and are  not fair average men. To obssrve the  law in this country means in many  cases, without redruss, paying the highest wages to many men who are not  worth lialf the money.  Some will nay that owners will have  it in their own! hands to weed oint inferior union men when th'ey find them;  but this would only add greater fuel to  the flame later on. In the nature ol  things, if the mines weie to -start up  ! to-morrow there would be union and  1 non-union men in them all, and the  moment' owners discharged iucompent  union men and put competent nonunion men in their places, the unions  would declare the former were discharged simply beca!use they were  union men, and another strike  would  ��������� result, such as has been so frequently  the case across the lines.  We suppose the Telegram is making  more money than a hundred of papers  combined in other parts of the country,  and yet in its presenc virtuous indignation and intentional misrepresentation of  the circumstances here,  with  In view of the present situation in  the Slocan, a brief.look at affairs in the  past may not be" out  of place.!  It is  only some seven or eight years since  the hills were covered  with prospect-  ,ors, and no capitalists-at. hand.   From  what they found, the prospectors, came  to tlie conclusion  that there was. great  wealth in our surroundings, but that it  required capital, to render it available.  At   once   the   prospectors     scattered  searching for capitalists to enable them  to turn the wealth  to account.   Some  went to Spokane,-some   to   Victoria,  some to England and others to dozens  of other places hunting for. capitalists  who  were ready to risk  their cash- on  the representations of men Often whoily  unknown to them.   From time to time  they succeeded, and according as they  succeeded,   to   use a   vulgarism,   our  beneficent legislature began  to apply  their "cinches" in vexatious legislation  until   now,   even  with' our successes,  capital   has  become  very shy of tho  district because of their ignorance of  what other disturbing enactments may  follow. ' '   '     ��������� .  It is true that the Payne, the Star  and a couple of score of other properties have made millions for their owners ; but the county is still young and  what the capital invested in other  properties may do it remains for the  future to show.We may.take snch  properties as the Madison, the Ajax,  the Sovereign, the Vulture, the Palmita and scores of others, and there are  many more thousands of dollars sunk  in them than have ever-been taken  out, and the question is : Are the legislature and organizations going to  continue the squeezing process upon  them until further investments will be  rendered impossible? Capitalists uo  sooner put their money in, these than  they hear of legislation crippling them  beyond conception.    <  Even the miners themseves, who are  depending on the opening up of these  properties for future employment, are  not in all their acts encouraging  further investment or mining operations, to give them the employment  they desire. Taking Into their unions  and demanding $3.50 for eight-hour  shifts for men who, through lack of  experience arid other causes,  are not-  worth half the money, is no way to secure the end so much desired by all.  There is reason in all things, and there  never was a greater need for its employment any where than there is in  the Slocan at present.   We hear it said  in many quarters that capital is ever  trying  to grind down labor.   It often  is but not always, nnd each case ought  to be taken on its meiits.   Tt will be  acknowledged   that mining is a   haz-  zardous avocation and,  consequently,  should command good pay; and it may  further be  conceded,   as  many claim  S3.50 for eight hour shifts is none too  much, but tliat should be  to acknowledged good men only.   If,  instead of  taking Tom, Dick and Harry into their,  unions with but elementary information of the business and   endeavoring  to secure the highest wages  for them,  the. unions could in all cases be counted on having the cream of the indus-,  trial element. to offer to employers, it.  would obviate  the recurrence   of the  vexations ;.'. legislation   brought   down  frOm time to time and do much to establish and sustain the  friendly relations  between capital and  labor  that  always do much in promoting substantial confidence in the industries of any  Country. !.'-. ���������';'"';   ',.  AND OTHER INVESTMENTS.  LIGHT' WANTED.  If,the  council   do   not put   on  the  street lights some   accident may yet  occur that will end in. serious results.  Our sidewalks are all narrow, many of  them elevated and imperfectly guarded j so that a'mis-step in the dark may  at any moment result seriously.!, Just,  the other night a citizen got quite a  scare in a tumble off the walk near the  K.&S. depot. . We collect: ������8,000   to  ������9,000 in licenses.andtwo and a quarter  cents, on the ratable property of  the  place,  and if the public cannot have  reasonable light for safety  to life and  limb, it is time they tried some other  experiment.     We cannot,   of course,  have an incorporation without officials;  but if the bulk of bur taxes have to go  to maintain officials, we had better disincorporate.again and revert to the old  condition of things.- Before incorporation, we had all the fire and police protection we have now, the full light system and less taxation, so that if nothing, is to be gained  by the extra taxation, outside of city paraphernalia, the  sooner  we go back  to the old order of  things the better.   There is  the greatest necessity for one light near the K.  & S.   crossing,   another   between   the  churches, a third-south of the C. P. R,  depot, a fourth in the west end and a  fifth near the police, station.   Along  main street it is not so bad,   a8 the  lights from within the stores  and business places render some service.  In the olden times,  physicians accounted  searched vainly for the  Klixir of Life, or the knowledge  whereby life might be prolonged.  We now know that there is no such thiiifr  as an Klixir of Life. Hut we have learned  that life may be prolonged by those who  take the right measures.  Any man or woman who will take care of  ltt-alt'u and take the right remedies for ill  .'health, may live to a!ripe old age.    When  a man feels out of sorts, when lie gels up  in  the morning tired out after a restless  night, and goes home in the evening completely knocked out with his day's work,  without appetite or ambition, he is a sick  man.    If he does not takethe light leinedy  . he will soon be iu the grasp of consumption, nervous' prostration, malaria, or some  other serious malady.  , A man in this condition should at once  resort to Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery.

We have some wise-acres of neighbors that always know all about the  workings of the mines; The Ledge, for.  instance, had the Payne running on  the 10th of August, and it is still silent. Papers like the Nelson Tribune  Boundly abuse the owners on the supposition that it is their objection to  paying $3.50 for eight hours that alone  interferes with the opening operations.  The fact of the matter is it is not the  eight hours to which they sO much object, as if is to continual interference  with friendly arrangements between  owners and men. The editor of the  Tribune is now a great friend of the  miners, championing every thing that  may be said or done in their alleged  interest, simply, as many believe, because he wants their votes for himself  next general election. Those who  know the gentleman, however, are  more than convinced that if laws were  continually being passed interfering  between newspaper men and their employees, as they are between mine  owners and miners,.he would be one  of the first to raise what he calls a  "damphool" ruction. Prom the ways  the mining laws have.been tampered  with during the last few years, without  ever soliciting an opinion from the  owners���������the parties most interested,  the latter never knew what to look for  next. It is to this feeling of insecurity more than anything else that the  present long shut-down may be attributed.

Mrs. James Constable, Seaforth, Ont., Writes:���������" Ever since I canremember  I haves suffered from weak action of the heart. .For some time past it grew constantly  worse. . I frequendy had sharp pains under my heart, that I was fearful if I drew a  long- breath it would cause death. In g-oing- up-stairs I had(to stop to rest and regain  breath. When'my children made a noise-while playing-T would be so overcome with  nervousness and weakness that I could hot do anything- andhadtosit down to regain  composure. My limbs were unnaturally cold and I was subject to nervous headaches  and-dizziness.    My memory became uncertain and sleep deserted me. t  "I have been talcing- Milburn's Heart and Nerve Pills, and as a result am very  much better. I have improved inhealth and strength rapidly. - The blessing- of sleep  is restored to me. My heart is much stronger; and the oppressive sensation has  vanished, jl can now go up-stairs without stopping and with the greatest of ease,  and I no longer suffer from dizziness or headache. It seems to me the circulation of  my blood has become normal, thereby removing- the coldness, from my limbs. I can  truly say that Milburn's Heart and Nerve Pills have done me a world of good."

The  tailings should not be emptied into the  flume as they will soon wear away the  structure that is costing the people so  much.    Anv   collection that the  city  does   not require   for street   improvements shoulU.be carted away, or otherwise  conveyed,   by   the   company  at  their own expense.   This is only a reasonable precaution  wluon  the council  should take in tlie interests of lhe taxpayers.   Now is the time   to take it.
