A petition has lieen presented to the
Provincial Legislature liy Kootenay
mine owners who art the limine lo repeal what is known as the Right-Hour
Law.   The petition in full is aa follows!
"The petition of the undersigned re-
preventives nf incorporated -.ouipun*
lea owning and operating metalliferous
mines in the district of Ko.iienay, in
the Province nf British C'otumliia,
hninlily shnweth as follows i
1. That lbe companies represented
liy ynnr pel il loners are either incorporated under the laws of British Columbia or under the laws of (ireat. Britain,
and in the latter case are now registered and authorized to do husiness in
the Province of British Coliiniliia.
'I. Thnl the capital of lhe companies represented liy your petitioners
aggregates many millions of dollars;
that Urge sums of m mey ll ive been
invested by the said companies in tbe
purchase of mineral claims in the district nf Knoteiiuy, British Ojlunbia,
and further luge sums in the develop*
in ntof such prop-rtles and in the
purchase and erection of machinery
lor the working of tbeir respective
3. Tiiiit a Urge number of mines
owned hy companies doing business in
the Slocan district hive not been working for some months past, the opera
Uou of tbe same hiving ceased oning
io the unsettled ami unsatisfactory
state of the lahor market occasioned
hy the passing mid enforcement of Section 4, Chapter 49, Slatutes of British
Coliiniliia, iti Vic, entitled "An Act tn
Amend lhe Inspect ion of Metalliferous
Mines Aci," wherein il is provided
Ihut "no person shall lie i-mpin-ed
underground in any metailifeiotis
mine for mure 'ban eight bouts in
every Iwen.ty-four hours."
I. That your peliliiiueis were not
aware that such legislation was heing
sought, and ihe first intimation they
hud of such legislation heing passed
was through the columns of newspapers. And your pelilioiieis humbly
submit that legislation of such importance, vitally affect ing large vested
interests, should not bave been passed
by the Legislature wit bout an opportunity bating been given lo those
iulrirsieilof expressing iheir opinion
npou lhe subject.
5. Ynur petitioners are satisfied
that Iliis change in Ibe law was unl
ask.d lor hy lbe miners, and 'lie en
amiii-iii .1 us ae greal .. surprise lo the
iniueis us il Was Lo tile iinnc-mv tiers.

0. lhe pissing uf this legislation
has had a very misruled ctfeel uu the
market; investois are timid, and rap*
mil that is seeking investment in the
Kiaiteua). is Iwiug withheld, awaiting
lhe action of Ibe Legislature in the
premises. Thai tunning could hate

Eastern I hi.mil.hi capital in ihe Kii.H-
eiinjs al lhe I.ginning of Uk- year
IMW, bul we regret to say that tile passing of the leirisiaiioh in question hus
neitled so much distrust in the minds
of the Investing public ihal ihe large
sums uf iiiuu.-y thai were ready for
Investmenl in milling operation- in
Briiish Columbia have lieen withheld.
7. That up to the time of the pas.
sing ol Ihe law in question mine owners and other* interested in mining in
the KiHiteiinys had reason to congratulate themselves upon Ihe pleasant
and prolit able relationship lhat enisled
between Ibe employer and the employed, and it is the wish of your |teti-
lionets Ihal nothing should occur to
disiinli the li.iriniiuy and peace existing hei ween employer and employed.
But speaking in the light of experience
liming the months lhat this law hus
been in operation, ynur petitioners
stale us a fart thnt il will he impossible tor all mine owners to continue to
pay tbe rate of wages for eight hours
it lalsu that they have heen paying
for ten hours j the expense nf carrying
on the wnrk in the mines lhat are at
present being operated is su greal I hat
the same has heroine burdensome and
iinremunerative. The necessary alternative will he a reduction of wages,
and upon such reduction, speaking in
Ihe light of experience, your petitioners are a/raid consequences will ensue
lhat will greatly retard the progress of
mining in the Kontenays.
8. Your petit loners desire in emphasize the fact i hat large sums nf British
and Eastern Canadian capital were
invested in the mines and mineral
claims throughout ihe Kootenays liefore the passing of the Law inquest ion
and ymir petitioners submit that it is
unfair to those who invested their
money that Ihey should be discriminated against as they huve been by the
passing of tbe Eight-Hour Law,
9. Youi petitioners submit that the
Law complained of is unconstitutional,
as the same is imposing unwarrantable
restriction upon the riuhl to contract)
that the privilege nf contracting is
both a liberty and a right which has
heen enjoyed hy British subjects from
lime immemorial, Hnd that any legis.
lei inn such as that complained of. which
prevents the making nf conl tacts, is an
inie'-ference with ihe freedom of con
trading lietween workmen and employer.
And further that the passing of the
Law in question Is sn unfair discrimination against the industry of metalliferous mining, and deprives persons
employed In metalliferous mining of
the privilege allowed to and enjoyed
by other persons, under tike conditions, in other mines.
Your petitioners  therefore humbly
submit that they are entitled to relief
in the premises, and would ask that
such action be taken hy the   Legislature uf British Columbians will grunt
a restoration of their rights hy eith-r
the repeal nr amendment of Section 4,
Chapter hi, Statutes of British Columbia, 62 Victoria,   heing  "An  Act to
Amend the Inspection of Metalliferous
Mines Act."

The entire special service squadron

Mr. F. J, Deane hus given notice in
the Provincial Legislature of an im-
poitant motion to protect, during their
absence at the war, owners of mineral
claims whn may join the British Columbia Contingent.
A number of Canadians, including
two experienced scouts, have arrived
In Cape Town and have offered their
services for scouting purposes. They
have paid their own expenses, and say
that there are hundreds of others anxious to follow them.
Carefully compile,! llgures from
South African Republic sources, some
of which have heen investigated and
found to he correct, show that the
Boer losses up to date ure approximately 6125 men including 2000 casualties during the siege of Ladysmith.
Banks in New Y'ork have refused to

and orphans of Boers killed in battle

class cruiser Pelorus, near the Isl.uul
of Inyak, Delagcui Buy, and has been
sunt to Durban, Natal, with a prize
crew on hoard.
A Boer railway official writing from
.Johannesburg to his sister in New
York saysi "Up to the present 1.301
English are prisoners, among whom
are 50 officers, and OflOO are slain, Our
loss does not exceed 200, Including lhe
dead and wounded. It sounds like a
miracle."   Very like a whale.
Dr. Leyds is at times very amusing.
It is stated in a recent telegram from
Antwerp that he does not believe that
the Boers will take Ladysmith, us the
cure of 10,000 prisoners would greatly
embarrass the Burghers. Recent
events suggest that the Boer besiegers
are likely to be equally embarrassed
hy failing to rupture the prisoners.
The "Spokesman-Review" remarks ;
The science of war is imperfect when
it fails to train soldiers to dispense in
field service with all luxury and trim
down their necessities. A thousand
mountain men picked from the hills,
trails and cabins of British Columbia,
would give the Queen Is-tter service io
South Africa than she will get frnui
lO.OUOcity men from London.
The departure of the Second Aus*
tralian Contingent from Sydney, New
South Wales, for South Africa took
j place amid unprecedented scenes on
117th inst. The streets were decorated
and thronged with enthusiastic crowds
of demonstrators, At the United
Stutes Consulate was u streamer hearing the words : "America wishes the
Australian patriots God-speed."
At a largely-attended and enthusiastic meeting, held last week in Vancouver it wu* unanimously resolved—
"That in the opinion of this uieeting,
it is most desirable that u large consignment of socks, woollen caps, jerseys, and other useful articles be sent
hy the public of British Columbia ns
soon ns possible for distribution among
the soldiers now in active service in
South Africa, und that for such purpose contributions lie asked for iu
articles or money." A ready response
has since been made.
At the patriotic concert held recently
In Rossland the sum of $317.50 was
thrown upon the stage or taken up in
the audience, In addition to this the
tickets sold brought in $373 or a grand
total of 1)880.50 for lhe Mansion House
fund. There was the greatest enthusiasm shown during the time the money
was is'ing thrown upon the stage and all
seemed anxious to put into practice
Kipling's words "Pay, pay, pay."
Eight transmitters were on the sUuo
nnd connected with the copper and
metallic telephone circuits leading to
Nelson, Greenwood. Grand FoikH,
Spokane, Portland anUSualtle.
