St.
WANT 8 HOUR DAY.
Eugene   Mill   Men  Petition
Company     Want Reply
By August 10.
The concentrator men at the
St. Eugene are asking for an
eight hour day. A petition is
now being circulated among Ihe
men and it is said there are no
refusals. It will be a unanimous
request, The company is given
until August Kith lo ponder over
il, and they nsk for a reply on
that date. The men are asking
for an eight hour day al the
present scale of wages.
lu the Coeur d'Alenes the
miners and mill men have been
working eight hour shifts since
the tirst of the month, and 8,000
men are affected by the change.
The mine owners were prompted
to this action by the scarcity ol
men and they made a cut in the
hours as an inducement to bring
miners and mill hands from other
camps. As a result men are
leaving in good sized numbers
from Moyie and the other camps
in ll. C. for the silver-lead district in Idaho.
The St. Eugene mill men feel
that their request is reasonable,
and they do not contemplate any
opposition to it.
Hose Team Praotioe.
The hose team are making
their regular practices on Monday, Wednesday and Kriday
evenings, and the public are
showing great interest in their
training. On Wednesday the

has arrived and is in use. It is
a great improvement and Mc-
Kellar is getting expert in its
use. The wet test was made the
first time on Monday. -Pernie

Mining Congress,
It has been found necessary to
change the date of holding the
next annual ueetingof the American Mining Congress to October
instead of November, on account
of conflicting with other gatherings. Denver has become such
a popular "convention city" that
it is not safe to set a date without duly considering the calendar. The attendance from eastern and middle western states
will be quite large this yaar
The Prospector has been requested by mayorsand governors
to advise them of names of parties desiring to attend and we
should be pleased to be of assistance to any one who wishes to
attend as a delegate.

Public Schools.
There seems to be some misapprehension locally as to when
the public schools reopen for
tho full term. As a matter of
fact under the manual of school
law and regulations issued by
the department last June, and
based on the school act of last
session, the summer vacation
for both high and public schools
ends on the fourth Sunday in
August and the schools reopen
on the following day—this year
on Monday, Aug. 27. Previously the public school vacation
ended on the second Sunday in
August and that of the high
school on the fourth Sunday,
now the vacation of both schools
ends on the fourth Sunday.
This applies to schools the province over and consequently the
Cranbrook School will open ou
j Monday, August 27.

World from  Montreal  says;
An Influental Liberal member
of the House of Commons, who
returned from Ottawa, says thai
there can be no possible uoubt of

Ayleswurlli is full in the running, and that Fielding is out of
the race. Sir Wilfrid has not
forgotten that Billy Maclean
came within an ace of stampeding lhe Finance Minister in last

of preventing the man from Nova

the Kegina team plays in Nelson

would like io get a line on the
Cranbrook team by knowing how
they stack up against Regina.—

Ielection in this province.
aaa
Actingunder the instruction of
|organizer Simpson lie- local
"Grits" of the Cranbrook riding
are preparing to issue a call for j
the gathering of the Maedonald
clan. With the calling of these
meetings the first step has been
taken in a supposed opening of
a campaign this fall. There will
bo but one meeting before they
adjourn to inquire of comrade
Hawthorthwaite "When will the
election be pulled off."
* ss    a
Organizer Simpson has hit upon a subject of interest to the
Liberals of the province. It is
the Kaien Island and Pendray
investigations. It is hot stuff,
but the investigation commission
have decided that the charges
promulgated by Maedonald and
Higgins were as false and corrupt as the opposition thai con
ceived them.
* *   *
It will take more than the
leadership of organizer Simpson
to make the hair grow on tho
bald head of his party's future
in  this province.
* *   *
Politics, on the "Grit" side of
the fence, have begun to hum.
Organizer Simpson was at Moyie
Sunday, and on Monday was at
Marysville rounding up the faithful. He will spend a week ill
Southeast Kootenay. and may
possibly tinil time to fulfill his
promise to the Windermere people and visit thai section of the
Kootenay,
* *   *
We are anxious to have every
Conservative In Southeasl Koot
enay in close touch, aud working
in harmony in favor of the election of a Conservative member
for this riding nexl year. The
campaign will bo based ou the
administrative and legislative
record of the  McBride govern
menl.

The Liberals in opposition  lo

SURVEYS FOR FORDING
RIVER RAILWAY
Imperial Coal and Coke Co. Development Progressing.
The preliminary work of the
surveyors for the new railroad
up the Elk river is making good
progress. The locators that
started from a point on the C. P.
R. near the rock quarry, have
passed the junction of the swift
Current and the Elk. The surveyors staking the grade moved
from their former camp on Michel
prairie to Graves' prairie about
two miles south of Swift Current,
Several miles of grade stakes
have been set. In conversation
with one of the engineers, your
correspondend gleaned the facts
that the grade to the junction of
the Elk und swift current is less
than one-half per cent, which is
considerably less than any grade
on the C. P. R. on the mountain
division of the Crow's Nest or
the main line. It had been the
intention of the company to run
along the Elk for ubout 8 miles
above tbe junction of the two
rivurs, but the grade across the
mountain from the Elk to the
Fording river is too great. In
consequence it is probable that
the road will follow Swift
Current to the Junction of Ford
ing river, tbence along that
stream to the coal fields of the
Imperial Coal and Coke company
The outfit working north on
the Fording river from the main
camp of the Imperial Co. is also
making good progress. Another
surveying outfit was taken out to
the main camp Wednesday morning. This well make three
camps.   It is evident that the
