Bill Will Likely be
Passed at Present
Session of the Federal Parliament.
A bill was introduced at tbe
last session of the Dominion parliament for the settlement of all labor
disputes by means of arbitration.
The mover ot the bill did not press
for passage last year but said he would
Introduce it again this year wben time
would have been given for the people
and corporations interested as well aa
the members of tho house to become
familiar with its proposed workings
before taking a vote on it. The bill
will mako strikes and lockouts illegal
and provides:
Seven boards of arbitration, one for
each province (the Northwest territory
is grouped with Manitoba), with a central board at Ottawa. In case any
railway declares a lockout it becomes
liable to a fine equal to tbo amount of
salary, wages or other remuneration
(computed for tho period covered
by such lockout) which would have
been paid such employees it they had
continued to serve the company: and lt
shall also forfeit to each of said employees a sum equal to double the
amount of such salary wages or remuneration.
Any employee who goes on strike shall
be liable to a fine equal to the amount
of bis salary, wages or remuneration
(computed for tho period covered by
the strike] which but for said strike
would have been payable to him if he
bad continued to serve the company in
accordance with the'terms of his hiring-
It is mado an offence for anyone to
incite a railway company to declare a
lockout or to incite any employee to
go on strike.
Provision is made for selecting the
members of tbe several boards, and
tbeir powers and duties are defined; a
penalty is imposed of not less than
$100, or more than $1000 for each day
that any ��� railway company
failsi to comyly with the . award.
The bill provides that there shall be
no appeal to any court from the decla*
ion of the board of arbitrators.
A suggestion recently mado Is that
each union shall become incorporated
and accumulate sufficient capital to
make the body responsible for the
breach of any contract it may make
witb the employers. Tbis proposition
is attracting considerable attention
among worklngmon.! Just how the
capital of tbe proposed organizations
shall be used or Invested is the point
likely to create the greatest difficulty.
to East Kootenay, where he was appointed sheriff with headquarters at
Golden, a position which he held up to
the timo of his death. In the arduous
performance "of his duties
of sheriff in the early days he was alert
and fearless, and some of the stories of
ols official experiences on both continents were decidedly dramatic. ���
He had a host of friends throughout
Western Canada who will learn of his
death with sincere regret.
Outlook For Copper ln 180.1.
All close observers of the copper
market have uniformly held that tho
price of copper would eventually reach
14 or 15 cents per pound. This prediction has been repeated so frequently
during the past year that it is becoming somewhat of an old story, and yet
the indications are etronger than ever
that there will be a gradual advance
in the price of copper as the season
advances, and that it is not at all Improbable that the 15-cent point will be
reached before the close of the year.
Statlstlcs'show that during tbe latter
part of January there was a decreaso of
1,500 tons, making the visible supply
lower than it has been for several
years. Consumption is increasing
very rapidly, and the recent advance
in price was in direct proportion with
the decrease in tho visible supply and
tbe increase in tbe demand for consumption. The showing made in the
producing mines does not give the Idea
of an excess of production over the
supply, and while there will undoubtedly be an Increase in output, the
giant strides made in manufactures
using copper, and the consequent very
heavy demand, will, it is believed,
more than keep pace with the supply,
The output therefore Is very cheerful
and will be especially gratifying to tbo
operators who were forced out of the
market by tbe decline, as an advantage
of but a few more points will enable
them to once more enter the producing
field.���Ores and Metals.

The road from Beaton to Ferguson

At a Joint meeting of school superintendents and the state board of hoalth

a topic under discussion. The super*

ago we had a case of a child not yot
ten years old who was suffering with
headache and seemed to be unable to
give attention to the lessons. On Investigation it was found that the
child had been up four nights till 11
o'clock. We bave thousands of such
cases in Cincinnati in which bad eating, bad "hours and Irregular sleeping
at home produce these results; but
hard work is what tbe child needs; not
rest, not recreation, not release from

But I laugh at 'em anyway t' show I

But of 'em all for writln' stuff, that's
funny, quaint and strange
The best is that there chap that signs

In making out the list
O' things to make 'em holler when it'

I memorize a lot o' things writ by that

Ermebby he's a woman; 'cause he's
talking all th' time
A-glttln, off some foolishness or reelin'
off somo rhynio.
I'd liko to know what   paper   he's

���S.  W.  Glllilan in   the Baltimore
The British Columbia members nt
Ottawa are now engaged in considering tho redivision of the Dominion
olectorial divisions of this province.
British Columbia is to have seven
members, an incrcaso in its federal
representation of one. Tho vast constituency of Yale-Cariboo-Kootenay fs
to be divided into two, Victoria city
will lose ono member, and a uew constituency comprising a portion of Vancouver island and a part of the northern
mainland will be created. The greatest difficulty confronting the members
is the sub-division of tho Yale Cari-
boo-Kootonay constituency.
A division that will be fair is difficult to conceive of. The territory is so
vast and the interests so divergent
that under any division that finally
may be decided upon there will be dissatisfaction.
One proposal is to divide thc constituency north and south. This
would throw the provincial constitu-
enciesof Nelson, Rossland, Kaslo, Slocan, Ymir, Cranbrook, Fernie, Greenwood, Graiid Forks, and Similkameen
Into one Federal electoral distriot, and
the Yales, Lillooet and Cariboo into
Another proposal is to throw the
Nelson,, Slocan, Revelstoke, Columbia, Kaslo, Fernie, Cranbrook, Ymir,
and Okanagan districts into ono and
Kossland, Grand) Forks, Greenwood,
Simllkameen the Yales, KamloopsJ
Lillooet and Cariboo into tbo other
Federal division.
Both propositions present objections,
and It would be a clevor man who
could for initiate a plan that would be
free from objectional features.
The greater proportion of population is now in the southern portion of
the single constituency. With the
construction of one or more of the
trans-continental lines tho northern
portion will quickly settle up, and that
fact must be kept in mind.
The Columbia river offers in some
respects a natural dividing line, but
the constituency west of the river
would be unwieldy, though, of course,
uot to the same extent as is the present
constituency, which includes tho territory east as well as west of the Columbia.
It is a great pity that the seat to be
taken from Victoria city cannot be
given to the northern interior, then
two constituencies could bo formed of
the country south of tho C. P. R.main
line and the third would comprise all
tho country north. Whatever arrangement is come to it is to ue hoped
that provincial eleotorlal boundaries
will be observed. This is an important consideration as dominion elections are now run on provincial voters'
lists, and gravo confusion is liable to
arise if provincial constitueneies are
partly ln one and partly in another
federal district.���Nelson News.
The Theory That a Postponed Event Proves
Unsuccessful was
Exploded Last Night
Major General Sir Hector Macdonald, one nf tbe most brilliant of British
soldiers, shot himself at the Hotel

A despatch dated Paris says: At the
closo ol Sarah Barnhardt's performance In "Werther" at her thoator
yesterday evening, following a dramatic climax when Wether seoks to kill
himself, the audience was startled by a
woman's voice in the body of the
thoatro crying, "I, too, wish to die."
This was followed by a pistol shot. It
proved to be an attempt at suicide by
Madame Paul E. De Martigny, a well
known press contribute!*. She was
accompanied by her daughter, who
knowing her mother's suicidal intentions had withdrawn the ball cartriges
from tho pistol and replaced them with
blanks, eo that the shot did no damage
beyond causing a temporary panic.
Finding that the shot was not effective
Madame De Martigny swallowed a vial
of laudanum, which she had concealed
in her handkerchief. She wns taken to
a hospital and has recovered. Today's

The eighth was a song by Mr. J. C.
The ninth and concluding item was
a recitation by Maud Nesbitt.
Miss K. Edwards played all thu
accompaniments and success was largely due to her suppoit and to Mr. Shannon who conducted the drills.
The programme took just an hour in
its rendeiing and while It nai not
lengthy it was well selected and in
execution it was splendid, tho audience
showing their appreciation by much
hearty applause and good feeling.
Mrs. .1. Archer made her debut
before a Ferguson audioncc as an elocutionist and her effort was highly
Mr. Ryan was in good voice and a.-
nsuul his singing was much enjoyed.
The children all did well and showed
evidenco of careful training combined
with natural ability.
Thero was ono regrettable feature
about the programme in our opinion,
that was tho absence of singing by the
school children, but this was unavoidable on account of lack of time for

of eating supper more real.
At 11 o'clock the seats woro cleared

as there were just enough couples
present to make dancing enjoyable.

There are many evidences of a
good active season in the Lardeau.
The Old Gold and Primrose people
are preparing to open development
on their property on a large scale.
Tlie Mountain Lion People will continue to push development on their
south property and when the snow
goes they will open up the new
lead on the west property.
J. W. Westtall will return in
about a month with an abundance
of cash to open up the various
properties in which he, F.C, Elliott
and others are interested.
Then Mr, McCrossan is back in
Ferguson and will have the Triune
running just as soon as the snow
will permit, and a large force ot
men will be employed there. We
look to see the Triune take a leading place among our shipping mines
this year.
There are many smaller properties that will be worked that are
near town and no doubt a few of
these wtll ship ore before autumn.
A special despatch dated March
23rd to the Nelson News from Fernie says: A vote was taken this
afternoon at Morrissey on the proposed settlement, which resulted
123 against and io for acceptance.
Michel votes tonight and Fernie
tomorrow afternoon. The vote at
Morrisey was a great surprise and
disappointment, as it was felt that
Morrissey and Michel would vote
straight for the settlement, while
'oal Creek would oppose it, be-
juse Co.il Creek miners were
;icing cut five cents a lon, while
Michel and Morrissey are being
raised five cent.- u lon, nnd No. i
mine at Morrissey to cents per ton.
lf the vote goes against a settlement it will be a blow at unionism, as the Western Federation of
Miners cannot consistently support
nn organization which hns turned
down their executive that favored
the settlement submitted.
It is rumored that it is lhe
intention of the Earl of Dundonald
to resign the command of the Canadian militia. This is being received with great regret especially
in official circles where it is believed
that Lord Dundonald is the best
officer ever sent to Can tela. If Canada desires to nuke her in'litia tlie
most effective ,'orce pcishlc she
needs an ambitious officer in command.
The strike of the machine men
and Freight handlers on the C.P.R.
remaims about the same as it stood
last week. Both the strikers
and the company are determined
but ive hear from private sources
that the men are likely to get the
best of it. As it stands the strike
is hui ting the trade of the country
and especially the province of
British Columbia.
These strikes always occur at the
most critical times ot the year, when
the companies can least afford to
dispense with the services of their
-employees but this is natural too
for at such times it would seem that
the demands would have more
chance of being acceeded to. The
C. P. R., however, have been found
a hard combination to force. They
bold pretty nearly a cinch and they
-well know it, but their employees in
this province of B. C. are mostly
men of intelligence and principle
and they will not stand to have
wages reduced.
The road shovelling gang are
still at work but while they are doing a good job it is going slowly]
It is felt that the government
should put on more men and rush
the road through. Now there are
but three government men and ia
from Ferguson and the Ferguson
people feel that they, so far, have
been doing more than their just proportion. Besides this the present
force will not be able to complete
the work soon enough, Supplies
are running short in Ferguson and
Trout Lake and there should be no
delay in fixing road.

The three claims owned by the company are the "Lardeau
Queen," the "Lardeau King" and the "Lardeau Prince," all abutting
end to end, through wbich three leads pass the entire length, situated at the head ol Lexington creek, in the Lardeau mining division
ot West Kootenav, British Columbia.
These three claims are located on tho western slope of Goat Mountain, the lines being north-westerly and south-easterly, and form one
complete portion of Mineral land of about 150 acres. Tliey lie east
less than four miles up from Fish river.
The group lies in the "Sitting Bull" and -'Wild West" belts,
two of the strongest and best known leads in that district, and work
already done on apjacent extentions has given most satisfactory
results as to extent of ore bodies and increased values with depth.
The formation is slate and schist, lying in an immense limo
dyke, and the croppings of the leads are generally topped with heavy
iron capping and quartz, which gives assays from $8 up on tho
Exploitation consists of two open cuts along tho surface for a
distance of twenty feet, which exposed a body of argentiferous
gaieua over 8 inches in width. The value of this ore body was $25.00
on the surface, but at a depth of less than three feet lt has increased
to $40.00. To tap this ore showing and the massive iron capped
ledge closo to which it lies the present tunnel was commenced and
is now in a distance of 82 feet. Another 85 feet of crosseutting
should reach this ledge at a depth of about 125 feet. When 01 feet
had been driven, an almost'soltd body of iron ore three feet thick
was encountered in tho tunnel lying against a wall of slate. A
sample at this point assayed $77.60 in gold, sliver, copper and lead.
At a distance of 14 feet from this lead a fine body of oro has been
encountered which, when crossed, proved to be seven and a half feet
wide, carrying the finest looking mineral yet found on the property.
A third ledge which contains the richest ore and widest surface
showing, will be reached about February 15th. This ledge when
encountered, will be from 12 to 15 feet wide and great results are
Tlie property has an excellent surface showing. The average
assays are most encouraging, considering the great width and con-
tlnuancy of the leads across the country with such great width and
prominence of the surface judging from other properties in the noar
vicinity, some of which are on the same lead and bave developed
very rich ore bodies,
In conclusion I would say that the Lardeau Mines are as good as
any, if not the best, in the vloinity, and I verily believe with a
nominal expenditure, they should be made dividend paying in a
short time, and I would strongly recommend extensive development
toward that end.
