The following letters suggest that
Mr.'Green is not altogether anxious to

As to disarranging his itinerary, Mr.

for two or three days, being engaged
in a canvassing tour with the Premier.
Upon reaching Slocan City tho Premier leaves for another district, and I
shall then bo at liberty, if you are
agreeable, to meet you frequently on
the public platform.
What 1 propose is that both candidates with one speaker eaoh make a
tour through the riding and hold a series of joint meetings. In addition to
the speakers travelling with us we
could arrange for addresses by local
men in eaoh place.
W.ill you be kind eo.o.*,gh to let me

about 20 miles north of Robson. It is
the eastern terminus of the new C. P.
R. work of the Robson & Penticton
Ry. and bases its future support not
only on its position but also upon the
fact that a mile tunnel is soon to bo begun there. The town is mostly in
tents at present but building is progressing rapidly and the population
numbers several hundred. The Brooklyn News is very neat typographically
and is well edited.
phief Engineer Stevens of the Great

Miller, well known in Kaslo, is his successor.

does not produce those affidavits alleging undue Influence of voters, etc. In
addition to tho card published in yesterday's News by Mr. Young asking
Mr. Green to produce the affidavit or
withdraw the statement, Mr. Young
says that on approaching one of Mr.
Green's representatives on the matter,
it was admitted that Mr. Johnson had
not made suoh an affidavit. As to the
alleged affidavit against Mr. McGregor

TH E ��� 'UNTHACT LABOR SYSTEM.
When Mr. ClilTo in his speech, Monday evening Btatod that he thought all
public works should be lot by contract,
he doubtless presented fairly the views
ofthe Opposition. When Mr. Retallack, in reply, met the issue squarely,
and stated that he was unqualifiedly
opposed to letting the labor of the
country go out of the hands of thoso
who wero interested in tho country's
development, be struck an important
keynote,
Thc effects of tho contract labor sys-
tom are seen in the kinds and conditions of Uie employees on tho Crow's
Nest Rai'.vaj-. There C'un-iiU.in ci'i-
'/.<������.- have been degraded to a Lower
levo; than il a Utllue.o,
Tho oheese-parlug economy whieh
would save a few cents to the government at the expense of the manhood of
its subjects is very poor policy.
We have had some examples of this
sort of thing recently right here in
Kaslo under the administration of
Mayor Green, tho Opposition candidate, and its continued policy under
Mayor McAnn, one of Mr. Green's
chief supporters. Work has been lot
by tenders at such low rates as practically to |exc)ude Kaslo's citi/.ons
from employment under the contracts,
and it was found necessary to wild
away for cheap foreign laborers to do
it. As a consequence, very little of
tlie $12,0(10 voted last full for street improvements lias remained in Kaslo, but
has lieen carried out of town to a great
extent by people whose mode of life ls
such that self-respecting men of family
cannot compete witli them,
Tho working poople of Slocan riding
will applaud Mr. Retallaok's vigorous
stand upon this live question, and will
be glad to know thut he lias thrown his
influence toward securing good pay for
home people on tlio Lardo-Duncan
work now in progress, and thus shown
that his actions preceded his public utterances on this subject.    ��
MB. KETALLACIv'S ACCEl'TANCB
To the Electors of the Sloean Riding1 of
West Kootenay Electoral District:
Gentlemon���- At tho request of a large
proportion of the community representing every section of the Riding,  I beg
to announce myself as a candidate  for
your suffrages in tho coming elections.
In respectfully soliciting your votes
and support, I declare myself  a supporter and follower of  tho   Hon. J. B7
Turner as tho loader of  tho only party
in this Province  with a defined policy
and coherent existonoe.
During my eight'years' residence in
this district I have-been a consistent
supporter,of his, party in recognition of
their attitudo fn meeting, and in cases
anticipating the requirements and expansion of this gv'eat mining region.
I am in favqr of tho following reforms: '
1. The abolition of tho tax upon
working minors.
2. The abolition of the Mortgage
Tax.
3. The distribution of scats in the
Legislature in direct proportion to population.
4. I do not approve of the policy of
the late Legislative Assembly in using
their influence to exclude foreign railroads, such as the proposed railroad to
Boundary Creek.
5. I favor certain revisions in tho
Mineral and Land Acts', particularly
some easy plan by* whloh tlie holders of
claims cau advertise oiif-their defaulting co-owners.
6. In filling all government appointments I am in favor of appointing bona
fide residents of thc district in all caseil
where such can'be fouml competent to
act.
7. I bclievo that'the Provincial
Legislature should fcring all the aid
and influence at its command to the assistance 'of ��tbo lead mining' industry, especially in the direction of
obtaining stronger recognition from
the Federal Government at Ottawa of
the importance of this industry and the
disadvantages under which it now
I a born.
If you do me the honor to elect me as
your representative. I will at all times
ii ideavur t:i protect and further the interests, uot only of the prospector, but

CHANU-S8 IN MINING LAWS.
. The following changes in the British
Columbia mining laws should be carefully studied by those interested in
mining in this Province:
First of those refers to thc location
of fractions. In all fractions surveyed
from now on, Whether stakod corroctly
or not, the surveyor may adopt the
boundary lines of the surrounding
claims, provided no sido exceeds 1500
feet in length. In other words, the locator is entitled to tho vacant ground
that ho claims, even If ho does not
stake it-Ir.' such n manner as to include
it all, whit li lie seldom does.
By a recent decision of the courts a
prospector lo��ta claim because,of in-
ability to secure the posi necessary to
mark tho location. The amendment
provides that in cases where claims are
staked above the timber line, or the
prospector can not securo the necessary posts, he may erect monuments of
earth or stoue.
ln staking an extension tlio posts are
often planted so as to form a wedgo-
shnpo fraction between two ends of the
two claims. These fractions have often incurred groat expense, not only in
recording and surveying, but in cases
where they carry tho lead, and thus become of such value as to promote litigation. T'io amended act authorizes
the surveyor to iaclude such fraction,
provided lt doos not cover more than
51*86 acres; the area oi a f'lll claim,
and provided further that two location
posts aro together. t,>   ,
Iiy fail tiro to record assessment work
within the *raquleed period of ono year,
either through oversight or Che misunderstanding of partnership interests^
valuable claims have boon lost, Now,'
if a prospector fails toi reotifd the-wflrk
within a year, lie has 30 days' additional time in which to make the record by
payment of an extra $10.
Another change regarding the assessment work is. in that particular
whieh callod for work to the amount of
#100 oaeh yoar. Now, a miner can do
and record as many assessments as he
pleases in a yetU' by. paying the recording feo lor each assessment done to the
extent of $100.   7
In case anybody should adverse an
application for a certificate of improvement and crown grant, the contestant
must have his claim surveyed immediately und file a plan made and signed
by an authorized provincial land surveyor with the writ.  	
To obtain a crown grant in 1896 it
was necessary to do assessment work to
tlio amount of $500 and to have tho
claim surveyed, which meant another
$100. In 18117 the act was amended so
as to provide that up to May 1,1808,the
cost of such survey should count as
work dono on tho claim, not to exceed
$100. In plain Kngllsh, lt counted as
an assessment and as work toward the
crown grant. A survey generally costs
$100. Tho last legislature extends tho
timo to May I, 1899.
Hereafter, in adverse proceedings iu
connection with the title to mineral
claims, beforo any court, each party to
thc proceedings shall give affirmative
evidence of title. Heretofore the burden of proof was on the contestant.
Tho fee for recording assessment
work has been reduced from $2.75 to
$2.50. Herotofore the fee for recording
assessments has been 25 cents higher
than other fees.
Anybody who pulls down a legal post,
erected to mark a boundary or location
of a mineral claim, or any writing by
law required to be thereon, is liable to
Imprisonment for six months or a fine
of $250, or both. This is supposed to
bo directed -itarticulsWly toward preventing the use of old posts by people
who restako a claim and sometimes destroy evidences of a prior location.
