 I  -<***���������,  ./���������  (^r k /  /. Vil  n^>*i  VOL. 6���������N0.B13.  SANDON, B. C, SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 13, 1902.  $2.00 PER YEAR.  Town Jottings.  Robt. McDonald is dangerously ill of  appendicitis at Fernie.  Jas Hill is visiting Fernie and .other  coal towns this week on business.  Sandon's population at New Denver  are all returning this month for the  winter.  Mr. and Mrs. Compeau left for Seattle  on Wednesday, where they will reside  in future.  Mrs. Knowlcs returned Thursday from  Silverton where she had been making a  two weeks visit.  There is a report currunt that Lord  Strathcona (Sir Donald A. Smith) is  dead in London.  Hugh Niven is doing assessment work  on his claim adjoining the Doll}' Vardon  group at Three Forks.  Three Forks had a big dance on Tuesday evening. A number of Sandon  people were present.  Mayor Cunning and his sister left on  Monday for a trip to coast points.  They may be gone a month or they may  be gone all win ter.  P. Burns & Co. have just finished laying 600 feet of piping from Falls creek  to their slaughter house for water purposes. Harry Nash did the plumbing  work.  Red Paddy gays the big st:ike near  Grand Forks on the Kettle river was  made about ten-miles from his gold  mining properties. The new camp is  called Silver Hill.  The Canadian Mininglnstituteisnow  m session at Nelson. They are strong  in.denunciation of our two percent, tax  and some of our other objectionable  mining regulations.  The Methodists give a social evening  consisting of music, recitations, etc. in  the church on the evening of Tuesday  next, with collection at the close.  Everybody is welcome.  Mr. W. A. Jo watt a few months ago  made.a tour of the Kootenay country  in the interest of the tourist association that was to advertise the whole  district. After getting a start that way,  he is out advertising "Nelson and  vicinity."  It would do the miners of this province good if they read the statement of  the coal mine operators in the Nelson  News of Thursday. It shows how the  leaders of that body forced them to violate the most solemn compact they ever  made, and will now prevent the making  of any concessions by the operators.  These officials get high salaries out of  their dupes, and it pays them to keep  agitations alive while the laborers lose  all around.  Lead is worth ������10 17s 6d in Londou  per ton and 4J-������ cents a pound in New  York. Silver is worth 51% in the latter  place.  Wm. Hood, carpenter, fell off a building at the Payne concentrator last evening and got a severe shaking up. At  time of writing it was not known  whether his injuries were of a serious  nature or not.  , Those houses that supply the mines  report a better business the past month,  but the general public experience no  substantial improvement from the  alleged mining revival. In fact the only  substantial increase in the number of  miners consists of the few that are sent  to new and lately unvsorked properties  for development.  The Ladies' Aid Society of thePresby-  tcrian church will serve a grand New  England supper In Pitt's store on Saturday, Sept. 20th inst., from five to eight  o'clock. There will be an abundant  supply of baked beans, meats, all kinds  of pies, cakes, salads and other palatable  delicacies. Come parly and avoid the  rush. Tickets 50 cents. Childree under  ten years of age half price.  No doubt an attempt will be made at  the Conservative convention at Revelstoke on tho 12th, to introduce Faderal  party lines in the legislature the coming session. We believe nothing short  of this will hold members in line, but it  would hardly be fair to force men,  elected on independent lines by both  parties to take a side abruptly. Federal  lines should only be brought in in a  genera] election.  Mr. C. Cliffe has succeeded in making  a sale of 10,000 copies of his pamphlet  on the resources of B. C. to the local  government. They are being sent to  the Hon. J. H. Turner in England for  distribution., The Federal government  will distribute their 10,000 copies in the  Western States, and the C. P. R. their  purchase in Eastern Canada. All told  the work has gone through an edition  of nearly 30,000 copies.  Struct at the Washington.  We fear very much this country will  yet be driven into the ground by the  sensibilities or rather the insensibilities  of many of its laboring men. On Friday last, for instance, every man at the  Washington mine with one or two ex-  ceptions.to the number of fouiteen, quit  work and came down the hill because a  Chinaman was employed as cook. This  same Chinaman had cooked at the  Antoine for eighteen monthe before  that and many of the same men who  struck at the Washington were at work  there at the time. Mr. Retallack had  done hia best for some time before engaging the Chinaman to get a white  cook, and being unable to secure one, as  a last resort he hired this man with  these results. We believe we are safe  in saying many if not all these men  who struck were getting the ver3r highest wages paid in the camp because they  were known to be good workmen, and  why they should quit work on such a  pretext when Mr. Retallack had done  his best to meet their known wishes, in  the employment of a cook, it is most  difficult to understand  Mines and Mining.  J. M. Harris has several men at work  stoping, developing, and making surveys at the Reco mine, getting ready  for the winter's operations.  Messrs. Clark and Bennett intend to  work their newly staked property, the  Cody fraction, considerably this coming  winter. They think they have a bonanza  there. Evidently they have at least  the worth of their money.  Stoping at the Mercury is discontinued for a time, probably till Mayor  Cunning returns. The owners are packing and getting ready a carload of ore  for shipment, and when the shipment  is made there will be a rest nntil Mr.  Cunning returns.  Strike on the Dorothy.  always favored white labor and the best  of wages for the men, but, of course,  there is reason in all things. If these  men were not willing to accept the best  Mr. Retallack could do, they should  themselves have provided some way out  of the difficulty before taking this rash  course,  A strike of 20 inches of clean ore was  made last week on the Dorothy one of a  group of claims owned by the Ruth No.  Two Mining company with headquarters  at Spokane. The strike was made about  20 feet west of Mike Kerlin's cabiu on  the Mascot. For some time the com-  This paper has ��������� pany have had N. S.

The probable explanation is  the mayor advanced money to build the  flume and other expenditures, and the  license money that came in in July was  taken to pay him.   There is,  however,  no record of it in the books, and this ia  the way  our  model  council  transact  public busines. The public have a right  to know where every cent the council  receives  comes  from  and  where it is  expended again; but the present council or at least the three that remain will  tell the   public nothing on this score.  The surprise is the people take it all so  coolly.  Hotel Reco Arrivals.

SATURDAY,   SEPTEMBER 13,  1902.  WHAT'S  IN A NAME?  Depends upon the name.  Scott's Emulsion is a name  that has value. Maybe it  doesn't mean much to you���������  but to the  consumptive who  B. J. PERRY INTERVIEWED.  The  Victoria    Colonist  publishes a  long interview with Mr. B. J. Perry, off Jjas been strengthened and fat-  tened, to  the   sickly  children  the  Noble  Five   mine,   that calls for  soinej comments.     Summed   up    Mr.  ��������� Perry concludes the smelter charges are  too high;   that  we should have lower  duties   on   candles  and   powder;  and  that   we   should   not    secure    import  duties against lead and lead products.  He says pig lead is worth $4.70 in Mc-nt-  . treal, that the B. C. producers get but  $1.30   for   it,    thurefore    the   smelter  charges are too high.   If the $4.70 is the  price charged for it by   the   Montreal  ' merchants, then the difference between  $1.30   and   $4.70, $3.40, is consumed in  smelter charges, freight rates to Montreal and the profits of the Montreal man.  Assuming   the   freight   from   Trail  to  Montreal to be $2.21,  the rest $1.19 is  made up of smelter and refining charges  and   the   Montreal   man's   profit,   the  latter of which might be 10 per cent or  47 cents.   This would leave 72 cents for  smelting and refining.   If this  rate is  exorbitant,   the   cure  is for the mine  owners to put in a smelter and refinery  on their own account.   It is all in their  own   hands   to   help  themselves   and  the country.  We fully agree with Mr. Perry that  the   duty  on   powder  and   candles is  excessive, and mining machinery might  be included in the list.   If- Canadian  manufacturers,   with  protection,   will  not give us as good goods at something  like the charges of American'producers,  the only resort is to reduce the protection to a moderate revenue charge, that  our   mines  may   profit  by  it.   If  we  remember    aright    Canadian   powder  makers promised if given protection to  give us as good goods as the Americans  made at  about   the same   prices,  and  when they got protection  they ran up  - the   prices   to , more   than   the   mines  could Btand and lost their   trade.   We  cannot, however, agree with Mr. Perry  in concluding that the Canadian government  should   not  put   on   protective  duties against American lead and lead  products,   as  we  cannot   see,   as that  gentleman appears to see,howan import  duty, in any  way  "curtail   the market  for raw products."   The Americans now  have a prohibitive duty against  Canadian lead and lead products, and  any  duties we may put on against their lead  and lead products  cannot diminish a  market  from   which  we  are   already  debarred.   -The  consensus   of  opinion  is that if   we  put  up   duties  against  American lead and lead products, we  will make our own products and supply  our own people instead of buying in the  States, and will often have the  choice  of exporting our surplus either in raw  lead or manufactured goods, as the out-  who have received good health,  to the weak mothers and  babies who have grown strong  ���������to these Scott's Emulsion  means something.  To all of them it has meant  an easy and natural return to  health.-  We'l lsend you a, little to try, i f you lilt*.

It is certainly little wonder Sandon is  not going ahead faster. There is nothing to advance a place like this like  having all prominent visitors stop off  and see the wealth of our surroundings.  A few dollars spent in entertaining  visitors whose statements of fact could  be of material service to the place  would be money well spent, but there  never is any   move   here, especially of  BLMD-  POLD.  late days.   Grand Forks,, Greenwood,  Nelson,   Revelstoke   and   all   the surrounding   towns   have   all   prominent  visitors stay over and see \*> hat is to be  seen.   A few dollars spent in haying  them stay over here and ride up to the  adjacent mines and be treated to an outline in  printed matter,   of   what   surroundings Sandon has���������its mines, their  shipments, dividends, our pay rolls,our  prospects developed and undeveloped���������  would open the eyes of  many   and   set  them a thinking; but there is no move.  Many of the businessmen would lather  be pelting bricks at one another   than  doing anything to advance the interests  of all, and of course   tlie   usual   results  follow.   The press may   do   its  share  weekly in publishing to the world what  is going on, but  its   efforts   should  be  backed   in the  way  outlined   by   the  citizens in gene-ial to have the effect desired.   We have wealth enough in   the  hills  around,   under  development,   to  make Sandon a place of 5,000 people- or  more, but unless the outside   public  is  assured of this it remains so much hidden treasure.   The fact is   they require  advertising, and the most effectual ad-  vortisment is a presentation to the eyesight.   If our wealth was shown to visitors our growth   would  regularly   and  steadily improve,   Nature has done its  share but for success the people   muet  second   its    efforts.     Where  are   our  mayor and council, anyway?  Blindfold a  ���������woman and she  loses all confidence in herself.  Her step is slow,  hesitating and  uncertain. Her  hands are raised  to ward the imaginary blows  which, threaten  her. When a  sick    woman  seeks the means of health, she is often  like a woman blindfold. She has no  . confidence. She cannot tell what her  effort will lead to: She turns now to  this side and then to the other in uncertainty and doubt.  The sick woman who uses Dr. Pierce's  Favorite Prescription may do so with  absolute confidence. It invites open-  eyed investigation. There need be no  hesitation in following the hundreds of  thousands of women who have found a  perfect cure for womanly ills in the use  of this medicine.  ������Favorite Prescription" cures irregularity and dries weakening drains. It  heals inflammation and ulceration and  cures female weakness.  "With a heart full of gratitude to you for sending out over the land your wonderful medicine I  send these few lines, hoping that some poor suffering women will try Dr. Pierce's medicines,"  writes Mrs. Cora L. Root, of Greenspring Furnace, Washington Co., Maryland. ������I had suffered severly from female weakness and had to  be in bed a great deal of the time. Had headache, backache, and pain in left side when lying  down. I commenced taking Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription, and had not taken two bottles  when I was able to be around again and do my  work with but little pain. Can now eat anything and it never hurts me any more. Have  taken seven bottles of Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription, and one of his 'Compound Extract of  Smart-Weed and several vials of his 'Pleasant  Pellets.1 Feeling better every day.. My husband says I look better every clay."  Dr. Pierce's Pleasant Pellets cure biliousness and sick headache. I  At length  the government of   B. C  has decided to do the right thing at the  wrong time.   For the past live or more  years,    ever    since    mining    became  established  in   the country,   with precise regularity, the mining offices, sawmills,   &c. were   visited and  cheques  taken   for   taxes  and   dues   of   every  description, simply because the collections   were   easy;   but   no   effort   was  made to collect from  unworked ��������� crown  granted properties, personal properties,  real estate and incomes because it was  attended  with   more   difficulty.    Now,  however, it is stated collections of every  nature, when times are at their hardest  and money most difficult to be got, are  to   be   made   forthwith.   As   personal  property effects, incomes, and improvements  for that  matter,   are ever unsettled in the   mining   districts   of this  country,  as   taxes were  not collected  promply every year, the one-half due  will now never be collected at all.   The  country will lose one-half its dues, by  removals and changes in the past eight  or 10 years  and   those   who   have remained and Ji'ave effects available will  be forced to pay up at a most inconvenient time.   It appears to us that when  the government did not  collect yearly,  it is a mistake to force the collection of  the arrears of many years now when  times are   at   their   very   hardest.   If  nothing was lost by delays in the past  years, the government  could  not   be  much out by ^deferring collections for  another year till times may be better.  "If the little chippie boards of  throughout the Kootenay have their  way the mine owners of the Slocan will  soon find a tariff placed on lead which  will stop them from selling ore in the  United States and prevent thetn, from  getting a reduction of the tariff on  mining supplies."  The great head of the Blueprint'is  often   subject, to great  flights  of   the  imagination.   Read the foregoing from  its last issue.    What the   public wants  to  know  is   how  duties   on this side  ,against American   lead and lead products can prevent our lead from, entering the States?   As a matter of fact it is  now,    and   has been   for   some   time,  excluded for consumption,- and how it  can be made more so by   duties on our  side, no one but a blue head can understand.   As the duties on  mining sup- ,  plies our producers want reduced   are  duties on this side imposed by our own  government, how the American government can prevent the Canadian government from reducing them is not pointed  out.    Will  the  Bluehead  kindly show  the public how this prevention is to be  enforced by  the Americans.   Pray, du  tell?    Any man  who  knows no   better  than get off nonsence like the foregoing,  should   be   if   pity   prevailed,   in   the  asylum.

Johnson, of Rossiand, has just  relumed from the Lardeau where he  has spent several 'months. While in  the north Mr. Johnson had the Weekly  Minor forwarded, to his address, and  from one of the issues he clipped a  paragraph to which a decidedly interesting story is attached.  ' The'paragraph in question chronicles  the death from starvation in Quebec  on or about August loth of Samuel  Napier, together with the gruesome  statement that the remains when discovered had been partially devoured by  the dead man's dog. The late .Samuel  aS'apier was a Canadian, born in New-  Brunswick, near the place from which  Mr. Johnson comes, and the old man  was well known to Mr. Johnson..  Samuel Napier's claim to fame is because he waa the discoverer of the  largest gold nugget ever found in the  world. This was the famous "Welcome  Nugget," found in the Ballarat camp  my Mr. Napier and his partners who  went from Canada to Australia at the  time of tho great placer excitement.  Tho nugget weiuhed no. less than  2,195 ounces, or nearly L83 pounds, and  contained only a trifling quantity of  gangue. The nugget was placed on exhibition at the first Crystal Palace exposition, and the lucky owners took in  thousands of pounds from curious  sightseers. After the exposition the  nugget was bought by (he Bunk of  England for iS,o7C 10s. Gd.  At tho time the big nugget was found  the Uallarat district was overrun by  bushrangers and Napier and his partners did not dare to let a hint drop of  their phenomenal good fortune:, They  buried the big lump of gold in their  tout and proceeded in their diggings  as usual. Later, after declaring that  their claim was valueless, tho men  packed up the big nugget in a bullock  cart and made for the coast, where thoy  took ship for England. The facts in  connection with the whole matter are  set forth at some length in Bell's  geology.���������Ross-hind Miner.  Game Laws.

Chipman,    government  agent at Kaslo, was in the city on Wednesday, and he gives rather a startling  interpretation'of the tax laws as they  relate   to  mineral claims.   He put it  this way:   Sandon is on the Blue Jay  mineral claim, for the most part, and  though the owners of lots on that claim  have paid all municipal taxes, if the  owners of the mineral claim have not  paid their acreage tax on the whole  surface to the government or done the  necessary $200 worth of work,  he could itln-iIn   ������-(-   n. ~ n >   .,  sell all the property for the government I ial1^  Ol   JjV0y   DeSCHptlOD,  taxes.   Again the town of Whitewater 1  (unincorporated) is on the Kaslo group  of claims, and though the owners of lots  . there may have paid hi in the taxes for  ���������   which their lots are liable, if the owners  of the mineral claims have not paid the  25 cents per  acre surface tax and  all  mineral dues or done the necessary $200  worth of work, he could sell the lots of  the parties who have already paid him,  for the liabilities of the mineral claim  owners.    This   means the  surfaces of  mineral claims are liable to double taxation, and it is time that at least some  of our legislators looked into the matter.  The law ought to  be so amended that  when  portions   of  surface  of mineral  claims   are    owned    by    independent  parties,   the   holders  of   the   mineral  claims  ought to be held for all dues  against these claims.   It is enough  for  the purchasers of surface rights to   be  held for one government or municipal  tax on the properties they own.
