Mrs. Jennie E. Harris, of Kaslo, spent  Tuesday in Sandon.  Mi*.   Jones bought  a portion of E.  Stein's household effects.  W. B. Strathearn, of Rosebery, was a  visitor in tlie city Tuesday.  The Sandon laundry, up the gulch, is  to be running again iu a few days.  Sheriff Tuck was in the city on Thursday looking around inquisitively.  Everything points to a pretty big  winter at the Reco mine this coining  season.  Thoro is an ad in this week of wire rope  for sale by the Hall Mines smelter at  Nelson.  The B. C. Riblett firm, of Nelson, are  The C. P. R. have in contemplation  improvements that will enable them to  make the run from Montreal to Vancouver in 70 hours.  B. J.' Little, superintendent of the  Payne mill left Monday, for Peachland,  in the Similkameen country to examine  a coal area for a coast company.  Mr. G. A. Faulkner, who resided here  at one time, and was married recently  to a Strathcona, Alta., lady, has gone  to Conjuring creek,  to tako up farming.  If the provincial road inspector would  only take a run over the road between  here and Three Forks, lie could see  where money could be spent to advantage.  The average stovepipe swearer will  soon be getting in his work, as Old Sol  is dropping quite low. It' also means  that New Denver will soon lose some of  its population.  Mr. W. IT, Yawkey went up to   the  putting up over $100,000 worth of tramways this year.  Ii. Byers & Co. are about to build an  office at the rear of their store, and  enlarge the store room.   ,  See that your name is put on the  voters'list in the next few days, you  may want to vote before long.  We have not had any city council for  the past two months, and the place  seems to get along without it. ���������  Mr. Alfred 0. Garde went to Halcyon  Springs on Saturday, and Mrs. Garde  and family returned with him on Tuesday.  Mont Pelee lias had anothcreruption,  this time destroying two villages and  causing a tidal wave that drowned 2000  people.  Mr. Billings, of the Nakusp sawmills,  spent Wednesday in Sandon on business. He says the mill is running  steadily.'  Hills'sawmill, as it is called, at the  head of Slocan lake, is quite a busy  place just now getting ready for further  operations.  Mrs. W. de R. Rose came in from  Olympia on Wednesday, and lias gone  up to the St. Kevcrn where Mr. Rose  has a contract.  Sheriff Tuck siczed the safe and some  other fittings in the Balmoral saloon on  Thursday under a judgement against R  McDonald.  Mrs. Oscar Whito left for Spokane on  Thursday to spend tlie winter and keep  the boys at school. Oscar lias now a  rover's license.  It is given out as a certainty now that  Kaslo will have a smelter and several  electric railways leading into tho surrounding country at an early day. All  are to be built by Minneapolis parties.  j Ivanhoe mine on Thursday tind went  through the workings. He left for his  home in Detroit next day, well pleased  with the operations.  Wall paper artist Skales was in the  city on Tuesday. He says he spent the  last,three months in Nelson for contempt  of court. He believes all great men  take their turn that way.  Mr. Carmichael, of the Canadian  Bank of Commerce, lias been promoted  to a position in tho agency at Nelson.  Mr. Beattie who has returned from holidaying has the position of teller here.  Joseph McDonald and wife, who went  to Nova Scotia to their old home three  months ago, returned on Monday, and  express themselves pleased with their  trip. They travelled a great deal, and  saw everything to bo seen on the way.  President Roosevelt had a very narrow escape from a sudden death on  Wednesday. The rig he was riding in  met with an accident and two of the  occupants were killed���������one instantly  and the other received injuries that  proved fatal.  The Rev. Mr. McColl, of New Denver,  and the Rev. Mr...Seymour, of Slocan  City, have been helping the local clerg}'-  men in special services the past week,  but they find Sandon a hard soil to work  on. It is said that the Rev. Mr. McColl  will resign his charge at the end of this  month and return to Ontario.  R. McGuire, who used to be with the  Bartlett Bros, some years ago, but now  of the Molly Gibson mine, has a sad experience to relate as a turkey raiser.  He says he had 40 some weeks ago but  foxea, hawks, etc. reduced the number  to one old gobbler, and as that ono will  like the Irishman's rooster only "sit  standing," he has abandoned the idea of  further pushing his enterprise as a turkey fancier. .  John Houstan is out with the revamped Nelson Tribune weekly, (and  very weakly at that) at one dollar a  year. As a matter of fact no man can  pay Z% cents a pound freight on paper  to this country, and publish even a  small weekly at $1.00 a year. The  mone}*" has to come out of some one. In  its early days the Tribune boasted of  publishing a cheap paper and the highest wages to printers (to catch votes)  but the consequent loss is there as many  ofthe eastern wholesale houses well  know. There is neither wisdom nor  fair play in publishing a paper below its  cost and letting innocent parties mako  up the difference. It is the very worst  kind of scabbing.  ines and Mining.  The Cause of Hard Times.  . One of the reasons times are not  better iu Sandon is the apparent  resolution of tho people to refuse to  deal with another. Many of the business people even for purely personal  reasons, will send to Toionto for goods,  rather than buy from their neighbors(  and the laborers and mechanics insist  on '.'om $3 to $4 a day, and send the  bulk of it out of the country rather than  pay legitimate prices here.   If goods are  say 25 per cent, higher hero than they  are at  Eaton's,   tho latter   gets    the  money while   the purchaser insits on  double the salary paid in Toronto.   The  man who insists on double the eastern  salary should not refuse to pay oven  50  per cent, advance on his requirements  at the stores.   Sometimes you will hear  it said the stores do not carry the goods,  and why should they when  the   people  wont buy them.   We venture the opinion there is not another town  in B. C.  of four times the size  of  Sandon that  sends out as much mono}'   as   Sandon  does   to  Eaton's.   How can the   place  prosper    under    such    circumstances?  Month in and   month  out   there   is at  least $25,000 paid to men in and around  Sandon and   perhaps $10,000 more  for  supplies   by   the   mine owners   every  month.   This ought to keep up. a good  sized place in considerable life',  but, of  course, when the bulk of  expenditure  and its circulation goes to Eaton's, San-  donites must put their hands in  their  pockets and cry "Hard Times."  Hotel Reco Arrivals.  Assessment is being done on the  Bellview, near the Payne.  From McGuigan the Rambler sent  out S3 tons for the week.  Tho Whitewater mine, Whitewater,  shipped G3J-< tons of ore for the week.  Having caught pretty well up with ���������  the ore on the higher dump, the Ruth  has let out its night shift in the mill.  The Whitewater shipments for the  month of August were: Whitewater,  255j*2 tons; Silver Glance, 15 tons.  Total, 270>������ tons.  Mr. L. R. Ashford has taken a contract to drive 150 of a tunnel on the  Texas, one of tho Reco group, for the  Reco Mining Co.  Mr. Rose and associates have driven  about 300 feet of tunnelling on the St.  Revern, for the Payne Co. mostlyonthe  two loads of the property. They are  about to run in a crosscut to tap the  leads further down.  On account of the lawsuit with the  NobloFive, the Last Chance will do but  little mining in the old workings this  year and will keep but a few men developing Galena vein accross the mountain all fall and winter.  There is a showing of eight inches of  clean ore at the Mercury that will run  200 ounces of silver, and that but a Sew  feet from the surface. The owners are  shipping now, and the probabilities are  they will soon have one of tho big mines  of the camp.  The Noblo Five mill may not resume  operations this fall, as the ore the mine  is turning out is quite clean itself. It is  expected, however, tho force at the mine  will be considerably increased in a short  time, and the property will again be-  fome'a steady shipper of clean ore.  Wm. Bennett and Geo. Clarke have  driven some 60 feet of crosscut on their  property, tlie Good Hope, above Cody,  and struck the vein at a vertical depth  of 50 feet. They found some broken  ore that runs GO ounces of silver and a  fair portion of lead and zinc. They find  obstacles in the way of working owing  to absence of trails and other me; as  of access.

CAPITAL WANTED.  Coming  to  their  sober    senses   all  around, the people of this province, the  agitators   thrown   in,   are becoming a  unit   in   tho conviction   tho   principal  thing this province requires to go ahead  as rapidly  as   any   part  of Canada, is  capital from the outside.     It   may   be  there is a fair amount of thatcommodity  in the country now to handle all industries that are well under way, but there  is little to take hold of anything   new.  There was also a time, that is   when   it  was coming in and taking up properties,  when there were many who thought our  resources were sn/Iicientiy seductive   to  bring it in let the  people   cut   up   any  pranks they thought proper to   exhibit.  Some three years   of comparative  inactivity aro, however, curing many  of  those of this belief.   They are   learning  that though our inducements  are of   a  high order   there   are   other  countries  that have promising offers also, and that  it is well to let up somewhat in   pelting  impediments in the way of investments.  Many are realizing,   for   instance,   the  hey-day of wild-en ting is over���������that  to  sella property now it must be shown to  have some merit,of its own  apart from  the general wealth of the country. Some  mining men too are realizing that overstocking has very nearly played its last  card, and   that  even  good   properties  may bo over-taxed in this particular���������  that there may be a limit   of   stock   on  which the beet of them can pay reasonable dividends.   ������������������-.''  The bass wood politician, too, is fast  learning that political agitations had a  most, paralysing effect on the purse  strings ol Eastern capitalists- that the  latter have watched with a more critical  eye than it was ever dreamt they  possessed, all the enactments, Bills and  agitations of the country calculated to  buy up the labor vote and array it  against the investor, either in bad  htimor or advantageous grounds for  tying up investments.  Of course, the business man, the  proprietor of manufactories and minor  industrial enterprises, and laborers  themselves have suffered severely in  the game, while the holder of interests  iii-properties who desired to realise has  found himself up to the neck among  the unfortunates. Happily, we say, all  of these are inw fast coming to a  knowledge of the true situation of tilings,  real and sentimental.

Revenue, of courso, must bo had, and  a more equitable' way of raising it  would be an acreage into on all crown  granted properties, which would force  some speculative holders either to sell  or work their properties. An indisputably fail way would be to tax profits.

Col. Prior is credited with saying  somewhere in his late trip through the  Kootenay that no one offered a substitute for the two per cent. lax. To help  the inatler out, we will offer two or  three suggestions. In the first place, it  must be assumed the basis of taxation  is equitable collections from the wealth  of individuals, for the support of government; and when the prosperity of  the masses is depending on the advancement of any given industry, a concession is usually made that industry to.  stimulate its advancement for the welfare of the people. This is the case  with -mining'-in this country. Its  advancement is weighted  payers on pro/its, they would get more  revenue than they now get, and help  out the country a whole lot besides.  This is one good healthy substitute for  the two per cent, tax, and we may  freely suggest it to the government.  We hear nothing now of the new  waterworks system for the city. Probably it has dried up and blown away  like the eit-v council.  la^L i������; Wood's PhespMine>  Ihe Great EnglisTi Remedy.  Sold aiid recommended by all  druggists in Canada.

Prior Interviewed.  I  ���������>'.    Ll     '1. I  Col. Prior gave the following to the  Victoria Colonist, as a result of his 'crip  through  the   Kootenay   country.   The  Col. reports   several   things   stated in  these  columns   before.     One    is   the  country needs capital" badly to take up  worthy prospects that are   offered   for  sale and convert thorn into mines; lhat  there are so many inducements held out  to capital in other countries,  ouis must  be safe to secure it; that the greatest  curse'thiB country ever possessed is the  politician, who is continually suggesting legislation, in the interest of labor,  as he says, it is every day driving the  capital   from   the  country  that   is   so  badly  needed,   and   the  laborer as a  result, is out  of ''employment- instead  of  into   it.     Let capitalists  once    be  assured the country lias the disturbing  politician   out   of   harm's way;   that  our unions are controlled by   sensible  men instead of agitators; that our mining laws are permanent, and we will get  all the capital we want; the prospector  will be able to sell his prospects, and  the working men in all callings will have  all the work they require at fair wages.  "The two percent, tax is what I hear  most about in the way of complaints,   I  have  taken down  many   valuable   remarks in regard to this tax,  and I hope  in a short time to give them the consideration which they undoubtedly deserve.  To complain is onething; but to suggest  an efficacious remedy is another, and a  harder matter.  "What does the country need to  encourage mining development?  "Well, I think it can all be summed  np in one word, viz., 'stability,' I'll  admit that it would be well to alter the  two per cent, taxifpossible, while at the  same time getting a fair revenue for  the government, but the great wish of  mining men is to know that no changes  are going to be made in the laws, so  they can plan ahead and know the  conditions under which they must work.  I have talked with owners, managers  and miners by the dozens, and all are  agreed as to that.  "The eight hour law is here to stay,  and it will never be altered; but I (begged the unions to allow the industry to  get well onto its legs and become a robust arid prosperous business before they  pushed any further legislation affecting labor, which might keep capital out  of the province. There are so many  places in the world where the capitalist  can send his money and where cheap  labor, Buch as I hope never to see in  British Columbia, is obtained, that it  is most important to be careful for a  while. The fact is, that no capital to  speak of is coming in at the present  time, and prospectors are complaining  bitterly of not being able to place their  properties. Business was very quiet all  through Kootenay, but I believe there  will be a revival of trade very shortly,  now that tho smelters are blown in  again."  FOR OVER FIFTY YJ2AKS.

A Pointer to Labor.  Ohanncey I\r. Depew has the following  to say on labor disputes:  No labor organization can permanently succeed whose solo object is to increase wages and to diminish hours.  The tendency of such an organization is  inevitably and rapidly toward collisions  and failure. The fundamental idea of  labor brotherhood is : First, charity in  support of the sick or injured and contributions to tha families of lhe dead;  second, education, which perfects the  artisan in the theory and practice of  his trade and broadens him for larger  usefulness as a citizen : and third, protection in securing and maintaining the  rights of workers as men.  The universal effort to absorb the individual to divide the people into the  employing companies and the employees  and to destroy competition will inevitably end in disaster. Hostilelegislatiou  and tlie laws of trade will leavo only  the legitimate enterprises surviving. In  in the same way and from the same  causes there have been several ambitious  attempts to form gigantic labor trusts  which should combine under one central  and autocratic authority every occupation in which a wage-earner or a breadwinner could engage. In all such associations of trades and occupations having nothing in common certain qualities  of audacity, fluency of speech and capacity for manipulating caucuses and  conventions have brought to the front  many men who know little of the great  interests confided to (heir care.  Labor must be as intelligent as capital upon its own grounds. The committee which calls upon tlie em plover or  the railroad oliicer must know its own  business as well as he doe**: otherwise  from angry contentions because of  ignorance comes the exercise uf brute  force; aini vioiem <: lails tu secure that  which, in nine cu ������������������(.-.������������������ out of leu. could  have been had by intelligent presentation.
