Substantial new buildings have
been erected in addition to the
old original Stewart M. & D. Co.
camp, giving ample accommodation to the crew of eight men
now employed. H. J. Thomey is
foreman on the property. The
new tunnel site has been excavated and faced up, and a
blacksmith shop erected, in preparation for the driving of this
tunnel, which will be started
when the upper one is completed.
The upper tunnel is now in 95
feet, and will be continued for
another 100 feet. Ore in this
tunnel has been practically continuous for 80 feet--the ledge
averaging from two to five feet
in width, with satisfactory
values. Considerable high grade

with. The face of the tunnel is

THAT   EIGHT-HOUR   LAW
the question, but will admit that the eight-
hour law is good for the employer and the
employed, even though it was not the employer who was responsible for placing it
on the statutes of the country. For investigation will prove that the eight-hour
law was fought for, for years by the labor
organizations the world over, and in no
case has it become law except where the
working men have stood united in their
organizations, and demanded it.
A   RECORD
THE enforcement last week of the
eight-hour law in this district, came as a
great surprise to many. Nearly everyone
was aware that such a law was in existence, but few appear to have known that
it applied to surface as well as underground work.
There are a great many differences of
opinion as to the benefit accruing from
such a law; and some appear to think that
it interferes with the personal liberty of
the individual worker. Arguments can
be produced in support of this contention,
for certainly it does interfere with individual personal liberty, for it states emphatically, and in the plainest language
possible, that a man shall not work as
long as he pleases.   And further, it im-
BY the decision of the conservative
party in Great Britain to no longer lend
its support to the coalition government
under the leadership of Lloyd George, and
to get back to strictly party lines; and by
the consequential resignation of the premier and his cabinet, the old land has
again been thrown into political turmoil.
Austen Chamberlain, leader of the
conservative party, appears to have remained loyal to his chief, and as a result was
turned down by his party to be replaced by Andrew j
Bonar Law; who has since been asked by the king
to form a government.
With dramatic suddenness has ended one of j
the greatest history making governments that!
Great Britain has ever had. And with it has come j
the fall of a man who, starting from the bottom,
rose in a few short years to the greatest heights of <
political power.
Born in Manchester in 1863, the son of a
school master. Brought up and educated by his
uncle, a Welsh shoemaker. Elected to the house
of commons in 1890. Became president of the;
board of trade in 1905. Chancellor of the ex-;
chequer in 1908. Minister of munitions in 1915.
Secretary of war in 1916. Prime minister from
1916 to October 19, 1922.
To Lloyd George goes the credit of having re

attempts to employ co-ercion, with a view
to persuading its employees to work longer
hours than those stipulated.
While some may be inclined to criticise such a law; such criticisms are based
upon the purest sort of thoughtlessness,
bred and nutured by selfishness.   Experi-
during the past century.    And his ministry can be
i reckoned among the longest of those during the
1
same period; though it is still more than two years
short of Mr. Asquith's, the longest since that of
Lord Liverpool, which ended in 1827.
OVERPRODUCTION
EXPERTS are still discovering and
���discussing new reasons why the mark  continues
to fall in price.    Those of us who are not experts
ence has taught that such a law is absolutely necessary for  the protection   not
only of life, but also of property. For;have m vaKUe idea lhllttheprinting of a few h��_

augmenting and bringing completely up to date the exhibit at
B. C. House, London.
In the past few years there
have been many new mining properties opened in this province.
Some are in the Kootenay, others
in the Boundary zone, and not a
few in the north.
Among the latter are those of
the Portland canal district. It
is the intention that all these
properties shall be represented

samples of the ores of such properties, and of procuring specimens of what new minerals have

prospectors are the discoverers.
They brought a nugget, thumb
size, into Usk and the rush
started. The greater part of the
ground in the vicinity of "discovery" has been started. It has
been generally understood for
some time that a good deal of
native gold could be found in the
glacial drift of this creek and
some panning has been done before with good results.

Lode Gold, $105,557,977; Silver. $55,259,485; Lead. $48,330,575;

409,505; Building Stone, Brick, Cement, $34,072,016; Miscellaneous
Minerals, $1,210,639; making its Mineral Production to the end of
1921 show
AN AGGREGATE VALUE OF $734,259,619
The substantial progress of the Mining Industry in this Province
is strikingly exhibited in the following figures, which show the value
of production for successive five-year periods: For all years to 1895,
inclusive, $94,547,241; for five years, 1896-1900, $57,607,967; for
five years, 1901-1905, $96,507,968; for five years. 1906-1910, $125,-

PRODUCTION DURING LAST TEN YEARS, $336,562,897
Lode mining has only been in progress for about 33 years, and
not 20 per cent, of the Province has been even prospected; 300,0fl0
square miles of unexplored mineral-bearing land are open for prospecting.
The mining laws of this Province are more liberal and tho fees
lower than those of any oth��r Province in the Dominion, or any
Colony in the British Empire.
Mineral locations are granted to discoverers for nominal fees.
Absolute Titles are obtained by developing such properties, security of which is guaranteed by Crown Grants.

Here's the lament of an elderly
gentleman visiting Prince Rupert
from Swamp Point:
Legs to the right of us,
Legs to the left of us,
Legs in front of us
How they display them.
On they go trippingly
Dainty and skippingly
Mosquito bites nippingly
Does not dismay them.
Straight legs and bandy ones
Poor legs and dandy ones
Awkward and handy ones
Flirt with the breezes.
Round legs and flatter ones
Thin legs and fatter ones
Especially the latter ones
Showing their kneeses.
Knock-kneed and bony ones
Real legs and phony ones
Silk-covered tony ones
Second to none.
Straight and distorted ones
Mates and ill-sorted ones
Home and imported ones
Ain't we got fun.

Like Living in Stewart
A visitor wandering through
the grounds of a lunatic asylum
was surprised to see one of the
patients hitting himself over the
head at irregular intervals with
a hammer. "What on earth are
you doing that for. my man?"
he exclaimed, as he approached.
The lunatic turned around quickly, a crafty grin on his face.
"It's so lovely when you leave
off," he whispered confidentially.
Success is often run on the
selfish plan.
They are now distilling hootch
from acorns. Great soaks from
little acorns grow.
There's always room and board
at the top���providing you are not
too lazy "to get there."
If Mother Eve had been as wise
as her daughters, what a fool
ahe'd made of that snake.
The dog stood on the burning
deck,
The liaiiies leaped up around his
neck
