Looking at tho matter from, the standpoint of   tho public,, which is the only
way it can be looked at as the* mayor,
the commissioners and the'chief of police are public servants, placed-there to
look after the best interests of tho public
in general, the matter just resolves itself' into this:. The' commissioners, to do
Justice to the city of Pernio, cannot
leave the present chief in his position.
He admitted .enough of the charges to
lay htm open to dismissal; as a man to
dispense the law to tho law breakers of
all classes must bo more exemplary in
his character than Pennyculck'openly ad.'

For some timo there have been rumors
of impending trouble at Michel, though
.nothing definite could be gathered as to
ill9 cause of any trouble arising.. However, IE appears that for some time friction- occurred between" tho local union
committee, and the management. A
miner by name of Henry • Marchant came
to Michel and obtained employment from
tho pit boss of No. 8 mine, who gavo
him'a note for tools, checks, etc. Hac
presented himself at No. 8 mine and was
informed that he could not start because
there was a "caye" in the place, they intended to give him and that he had bet.
ter. i see the-superintendent. c' Merchant,;
however went ,to the No. 5,mine and
asked for,.a job, "and upon informing tho;
pltboss.of his.name -vas told Hat tlio
mino was already employing all the men
they required. Marchant then . reported
to tho union, committee what- had transpired; They interviewed the superintendent, who finally refused employment
,to , Marchant. At a special meeting, of
tho miners, last Sunday it was decided
to suspend work although some members
wanted    to submit*,   the matter to the
District  Officers  and  continue  work    as I
per} their agreement with tlio company.1
On    Sunday   night    Di'scri^t T-ri-tident

tract    rates  for  a new  mine.' President *

tiori"  had  been  ordeied  that night!   He i
interviewed     the local ofliccrs and com-. I

and why he was not .informo,!* before any
suspension took place.   Ho wns told that j

evidence 'on  luhM ot  the  accused.   Mr.
Eck'st'em being denied this right he very
•strongly railed the judge and prosecution
''      ■■  by saying  "That by, going on with tho
■       , hearing  to-dny,  you  deprive  the accused
■* of a  proper  hearing,  and  forces  me   to
the conclusion that the intention was to
force  the hearing  and deprive  him  of a
proper     defence. , What does  tho  Crown
want?   his-blood?   This  is  the  sycologl-
"cal moment to defend the- man,  and    I
can not too   strongly   condone     the Offence of the crown in railroading thoac-
'    cused  to' the gallows.   There is nothing
•in  principle  that  justifies .the  situation,
"because tho assises, happen to be coming
•on    The accused      is entitled  t» rights,
■under    British     law, and it is tho first
time to my knowledge in the history of
British    jurisifrudenco    that  nn   accused
has been pliic.ed  in such a vos-ltlon."
Judge I-t-vine, however., would not
grant ti-* 'remand and Ml*. Bksteln said
that he -was forced' to withdraw from
tho defense of the prisoner, as he could
not concede in this ' opinion, and -would
not he party to such a proceeding. H-e
therefore notified, the-prosecution and tho
Judge that he' was trot acting any further -ior the accused.
The judge then road the charge to the
.prisoner and the case was proceeded'
with. The first witness examined was
' Koss D. McKinnon, a miner, who resides at Michel. His 'evidence went to

On Wednesday  afternoon Miss Murcutt

had to rely on the "secracy  of the gentler  sex"  to  get  our Information.',     We

dealt      very    largely,    and  we consider
wisely,    with    tho  question   of  mothers
watching  their  children,   and  we  understand    that    the    sentiments   expressed
woro    identical    with      our -editorial'on

Ono  of  the drawbacks  tn this At&trict
hitherto,has been a dearth -of Wftljer. The
water lias been hauled in. tanks from the
rivet- over a.rough and heavy road. Mr.
H.  J. Reynolds has iwovlded  Coal City
with 'a bountiful  supply  of  water.     At'
the  request of Messrs, Bullock ho witched  for  water    and in ono  spot ho . Said
that   water  would   be  obtained   at      tho
depth of six feet.   They commenced • digging    there and   had proceeded but four
feet,, when   they, -struck"' a fine rltow of
water.   They went through   a  strata    oof
gravel , and  then  got  into   quick  sand.
They dug another two feet and then had
to.crib it immediately as the water Ian
in  so "fast.   This is Indeed a great boon
to the district as it is fine, clear     and
wholesome    water and  also "-uft.; ■ This
well  is-     on   th'e, prairie..,   Another  well
has  also  been  sunk   on  the  property   of

would have lo be operated upon before 1
could     he   -cured.   I-do  not   think  that
there was one remedy, I, did not try but
they  failed' to' cure  me.   One  day  I  received  a sample of  Zam-Huk  an-d  tried
that.   1 got somo i-elief and decided   to
give    it a good trial.   1 bought three of
the  boxes  and  before 1 had-finished  the
third  box I was completely cured.' ijam-

Grand Forks, May 18—The f-till further tightening of the "lid" in Grand
Forks has been accomplished- the last
few days by the police commissioners
who have put all slot machines out of
business. It is today stated that the
city council are considering the advisability of hereafter enforcing the bylaw regarding the riding" of bicycles on the
sidewalks of Grand Forks. On the municipal statute books there ins leen nn
ordinance of this kind for years but it
has,been practically a dead letter and
in consequence bicycles have had a free
right of way on all. the sidewalks of the
Gateway City,, but during the past week
a couple of bad ■ accidents have occurred
one-in particular being when tho young
son of a business man was knocked down
by a wheel and narrowly, escaped being
badly injured,, The general opinion here
now is that this privilege, of riding on
sidewalks-, is- being greatly abused" and
that the time has arrived to call a halt
in this matter,! ■. .
Fredericton. May 10—A bill to enlarge
the scope of the .Workmen's Compensation Act was introduced -in the legislature to-day. The maximum liability by
it "is increased from fifteen, hundred to
two thousand dollars.    -
There will bestrong opposition made to
the measure by manufacturers.-

Wc perfectly agree with tbo follow lug
which appeared editorially in tlio UniUil
Mine Workers Journal, lu view of tlio
attitude that several-of tho thin skinned
and thick l.ciuletl individuals who try
to mako a showing of what they think
they know and who go so far as to forget that there are other and wiser men
in the world than thoy, it conies at an
opportune moment:
The personal character, integrity and
In somo cases the honesty of the olllceis
in several districts 'have herix assailod
by unreasoning and unthinking members.
Their motives have been impugned, their
character and standing''assailed upon.'a
question or. questions in which, there Is
no room, none whatever, for "charging
bad faith on the part of any official. .
,, Tho official of any district is, supposed
to have, and generally does hai'e.-.a
more accurate knowledge of tho subject
in dispute, of the surroundings that
largely govern, lie may, and iiKijuenUy
does, have a knowledge that is not (or
tho public, just the same as tbo president ot any other 'large corporation
knowledge, that it is best for the corporation's interest, that he(»2ep that
knowledge within his own bosom and
not blazon it out to the world.
The officers of the mine workeis nre
Eupposed to be' equally discreet. If they
are In possession of any knowledge ', of
this character, they conceal it and nre
frequently severely criticised for their action, whilo in reality.they are performing the best kind of service they can for
the members. Nay, they arc often abused "and slandered and life is' made a misery to them by the'-very ...men for whom
they are devoting the best energies of
thoir lifo' to help succor and protect,
.Criticism._lustl.v_and  friendly,, is    al-
ways to bk; expected. .In fact most of
- the oflicers court such criticism, because
' it is only Tjy this means that mistakes
can bo Corrected and avoided in future,
but "when that criticism reaches the
point that it is boyondi reason, It censos
to be criticism and very often becomes
slander. ,\Ve. know that soveral of the
district'officers havo been" made the" object- of- slanderous remarks; that they
■ have been charged with working for tho
opposlteiparty.^whlle pretending to. work
for" tho inlncr and all such nonsonsQ ft",
tfafei, wliich to a'thinking- m'u'n /■* -like tho"
noise emanating from a donkey, and no
attention'is paid to it'. But 'many ol the
officers are,' like others, men of high and
strong-' temperament, of a sensitive na-
. turo, and these' unkind words cut deeper'
than if thoy had boon pierced by a'
knife. The result; is discouragement,
doubt-and - fear, where, thoro should ho
courugo, hope and kindness, to bo followed very often into tho quiet Ufo of
the official, and an earnest, capable, determined friend is lost from the movement for all timo.
Tho miners by their votos lmvc ototoii
thoir officials, Thoro is not one of thorn
to our knowledge that doos not ilcriorvo
all the praise and credit.that can ho
given thorn for conducting the office in
a biiHtnoNS manner, und such unjust, un-
wis**, carping, sneorliig criticism is an
Insult, Injustlco and an Injury not only
to thorn, but to the organisation.
If ovor thoro was a time when tho united support should havo been given to
tho district and Tntornntlonnl olIiCoi'H it
has boon slnco .April, 1. Thnt thoy ha\o
succeeded in gottlng mntters In such" a
sJmpo «« it Is nlrenily n trlhiilo to
tlie skill, niiergy and fnlthfulnosH of
overy ono of thorn; that thoy should'ho
mado tho subject of attack In the hnmii
of their friends is highly ulliicroilltnlilo to

A circular having been issued -, by
Jas. Douglas and Chas.. Jarner, I'u&i-
dent and Secretary- of Mh'hei local,
setting,,forth their position, we deem
it advisable to' state the' position of tho
Bistrict Union upon the dispute at' Michel. ,
Tho ■action of the men. at'Mlchol in
suspending work .without first giving tho
District olhcers an opportunity of endeavoring to settle the matter as provided by tho .International Constitution
of the U. M. W. of A. Is a,wilful violation of the Constitution, also' a breach
of their agrcoment , with the Crow's
Nest l'ttss' Coal Company.
On behalf of tho United Mine Woiker.s
of-America wo request the men to resume "work aiid observe their, controls.
Wo request that the matter, in- dispute
bo handed tho-Bistrict Olncers for settlement'.' We have always been ready to
take up any' mutters in dispute at Mlchol when properly placed in our hands;
nnd aiv so today. Wo have been denied
thnt opportunity on this occasion at
Michel. '    '
Wo again call upon" all loyal'members
of our'-organisation at Michel to resume
work',nnd place their disputes in our
hands';'   '     ' '.=_--_,.,

The Crows Nest Pass Coal Co issued notices requesting the miners at Michel to
resume work at once, stating' that they
are now, as before, and as they will lo
hereafter, - willing" to settle' any trouble
in the same liberal manner as heretofore. What ^stupendous magnanimity !
The Coal Company have never lived up
to the spirit of the agreement, never
mind giving it a liberal interpretation.
max of a pun-pricked policy; pursued by
the Coal Company's oflicials. Human
tolerance has a breaking point. The
Company's officials have, during tho financial crisis, humiliated' and degraded
the miners almost beyond endurance.
They have cheated and told lies in the
transaction of business between themselves and the*, Local -Grievance committee'.of tho U.-M.W; of A. Just now they
have deliberately insulted tho organisation ;iif .which then-acniDtaong -»y- tm act
of discrimination of tho vilest and most
flagrant kind.
A union man in good standing received
a job from tho pit boBB at No, 8 mine
on Friday, 1st of,    May, and told     to

ho proceeded  to his work,  provided   In
the meantime with all tho tools necessary for working for the company,   ho
was informed by tho pit boss ' that tho
pldco they had intended to give him had'

asked if thoro was anything elsa for him
to do, and was told to sea tho superintendent,   lie tried to seo tho .wperlnton-

of tho Crook, who' asked him his name,
which of courso disqualified him,
Tlio company havo never assigned any
reason why ho should not ,work and as

fining Institute in
-Visitors Coining
West.     :
Rossland,. Jlay 1(5—The general meeting
o[ the, western branch of the Canadian
mining institute was held in this city on
Thursday last. This branch it will be
remembered, was organised in-NWson on
.lamiarj 15 of the Jurrcnt year, nt
which time if was decided, that theroaf-
ter general meetings should be hold three
times a year at intervals of '1'months
'in accordance with which decision Hi**
meeting at Rossland, has jusl been held.
A, B. W. Hughes, general suy-crintend-.
ent of the Cirnnby Mining; Smelting and
Power Co., Ltd., was in tho chair, and
E. Jacobs of Victoria, editor of the 1-ri-
Ush Columbia Jliiiing liocord, -. carried
out 'his, duties as secretary. The total
attendance numbered thirty-six, including
six non members of the institute. The
members were from Montreal, Two; Fernio, one; Nelson, two; ('rand Forks Ihe;
Phoenix, one; Victoria, one; Vancouver,
one; Trail, two; Northport, Wash., one,
and Rossland, fourteen. Among . those
present were Dr. .T. 1-onsall Porter, professor' of mining, at'McGill university,
Montreal, who recently arrived , in the
Kootenay with a party of thirty-two of
the mining school students In Uie en pa-,
city of'instructor in. geology. TWi non-
members included J. A. Mcdonalr, M.
P.P.,- J. S. C. Fraser, manager of die
local branch of the bank of Montreal,
ond A. B. Mackenzie, secretary,, r, iii.
nsociated boards of trade of southeastern  llritish Columbia.
,In opening the meeting which was
held in the court house, courteously placed at the disposal of brunch for the
purposi*, the chairman,. expressed his
pleasure at , the gratifying attendance,
■ though considering the great importance
of mining and smelting interests they
represented, it mighi be expected- that
many more-would-be present. However,
a society, like their mining „ institute
should not be judged by the oUcndencc
at its meetings; its influence must be
measured-by the wide publicity given to
the matters discussed, and the papers
tubinitted,; for information and discussion. In order to'extend the influence oi
their branch of the, institute periodical
meetings" nro held at' different' places
from  time to time.' tlms"glvlng resident
members of those places opportunity to
attend and take part in.the proceedings.
In. this wny an increased liold is, obtained on the ninny Interested in the
mining and smelting Industries.
- The secretary read an account of the
proceedings -nt the Nelson meeting last
January, and-this was taken ok the
minutes of last meeting, and on rcsolu-
Hion was so-adopted.
.The chairman then asked J. A, Macdonald,'- chairman of the Rossland district in tho provincial logisluturo,' who
was present' by invitation, to address
the  meeting,
Mr: Macdonald said that citizens of
Iiosslnnd had ■ been honored hy 'having;
tlw second meeting of tho western li ranch
of the Canadian Mining' Institute, convened lu their city. .Of course they had
always flattered thviusolves that Uo'w'liind

had already be/m informed that it would
be asked to make an appropriation towards the cost of entertaining the visitors. He haped Mr. Macdonald would,
endeavor to help them to secure --cue
such - assistance  from   the  government.."'
Mr. Macdonald enquired whether" tho
Canadian Mining Institute received h
grant from the provincial''governmoat.
He thougiit that if ° application for it
were made, the legislature would, support a grant to assist in carrying out
the useful work of the institute.   '•'       °
The secretary said that so far as,he
knew no financial assistance had yet
been given-the institute by the government of British Columbia. The-statement
of the treasurer of the institute, presented at the annual meeting; in Ottawa
iu March, shows that the1 Dominion government gives an annual- grant of three
thousand dollars and the Ontario government one of fifteen hundred dollars
and he understood that the Dominion
government had been.asked o' increase
Us yearly grant to live thousand dollars. As a matter of, fact there had
been no official recognition by the government of 15.C. of the existence of the
institute. The Houil ion government and
the provinces of QueU*c nnol Ontario had
all been oilicially repi'f'-'ented at the annual meeting of the institution and hud
supplied - information relative to their,
mineral-production, but 11.C. had had
only tlie benefit of the attendance at'the
annual meeting of two or three members
from tho province, and only such Infor-
hiation concerning mineral production as
lie, the speaker, had supp.led for submission to the meetings of 1907 * and
1908' respectively,
■ Mr., McMillan suggested that the institute should apply to the provincial
government for a grant, which should
not to be lets than the amount' received
from   Ontario.    .
Mr. Macdonald did not anticipate that
the government would have any dlhicul-
ty in obtaining n grant' from the provincial government if {ho propel' information concerning, the work and position
of the institute were supplied. The province had been fairly liberal in giving,
aid to-the agricultural and fruit growing
industries so he thought the mining industry 'would be similarly assisted if
the   necessary   representations were made.
The secretary "mentioned that tho total
value of the mineral production of the"
province in 1907 wns twenty-six million
dollars, which was as large or larger
than that ot the-combined value "of,,two
or three of the chief industries of B.C.''
it was true the province had the' benefit
of the work of the provincial miiicinlo-
;gist, and the provincial issayer,' but in
his opinion, the , mining Industry did
not' receive from the provincial- gover'n-
ment adequate aid  or  recognltjoiL,
old Oxford settler to a water-jackeueJ
'receiver'" ami that- during the-.two' years
it has been in use ihe matte comi-nrt-
mer.t,- has only, frozen up three or ..four
limes' and ' then on account of the high
zinc contents of" the matter. The settler
has more than paid ior itself by reason
of .the s-lag -made leing cleaner. Among
other advantages which this arr;n'.em;nt
of the settler affords are thefclln»ing :
The near and tc.ir, of the matte put-i is

in Hie ordinary t-appiiVg methods; tapping c'ay is sa-'ed; tlw danger oi nun

it-was gratifying to find the Dominion
department of mines doing so much work
in the west and he had received assurances from the minister of mines and' tho
directors of the geological survey and
mine branches respectively, 'that - their
work in the west will bo continued at
lenst as large a scale as-.during the past-
few years.  '  '     ,   '  T      ". .'.'.:

I have never been one to antagonise between, labor 'and- capital.
Tlacli should be protected. No
thoughtful niun" will" contend that
labor organisations should be
absolutely destroyed. Sometimes
their demands may be 'unreasonable, but if, the working people of
the country cannot have' organisations' to protect, themselves from,
organisations of capital that may
.ittemp'-t- to . put, '.uT.'jUSti b*uT*dema

These ,. people 'are ' in many in- -

(J, M. Campbell's paper on "tlranby
Minini; Methods," was a clear and comprehensive description of tho niothodi
followed 7by the. C.ranby company at its
big copper mines at Phoenix. It showed
how mining is carried on at those mines
which in u few years ha-ve produced over
live million tons, of ore. At one place
in"the mine the ledge measured horizontally and not directly across the dip,
was 700 feet in width. Mr. Cuupbell
told how the largo 'deposits were opened, the method ol stoping, aaul'ige ard
oi tl.V. many labor saving devices used
in the mine. Owing to the low grade of
the ore and the large quantity necessary
to be handled every, possible economical
corner had to tu cut in order lo leduce
expenses. Brawings and large, photographs illustrated , the text-of the paper,
which ,was generally Commended as being
a • distinctly creditable production. . As
the timo was short discu.-s'ioii was brief.

.. The, people in general seem    to ,
have a very meagre idea by what
is meant-by the "term "Dominion
Exhibition,"  and a word or ;two
in  explanation may not be      out
of  place.   The   Dominion' government , has for the past five years
made,   an     annual grant of fifty
thousand* dollars to be used     for'
the purpose  of holding  a  Dominion exhibition in some, one of the
provinces.   These exhibitions have
been,held in.Toronto,   Ont.;  Win-

merits, with  the  view,  to  holding
the  Dominion   exhibition  in   tliat
city, and made application to the
Dominion   government     for    • the
"grant" for 1907.^ Meantime the energies  oi the board were
towards  getting the grounds  and
buildings   , in readiness.   When  it
was    learned  that  the Dominion
exhibition was to be held in Sher-
brooke, Que., in 1907, the government - was     urged  to    make the
grant for the province of Alberta
for 1908, and late in October last
. the president and manager of the
Calgary exhibition went to Otta-
:, wa and  succeeded in; securing the
;.grant, 'and since that time letters
of approval of the move have been
received, from air parts of the Do-,
.minion,   and-especially from,   the
- west,  and  from, every1 place have j
come    assurances   of   hearty   sUJ-- j

sure to'be a great attraction especially to the people of Western

during  the  exhibition.
The attractions will be ec*ual to

there will be many typical western features not seen at other ex-'

One night in the English parliament I
witnessed what seemed.to me the birth
of a new order. ..
"  I saw a Socialist .miner rise from his
seat '. to    address  the  house.   lie      was
speaking' on a bill to compensate work-,
men injured in the mines. *       "'
Broad shouldered and powerful, with a
voice that rang through the house; he
told the"story of the mines. He told .of
the dark life there, the long day-underground, the dangers of tho work; of tho
children that went from school" into the
black night of life's labor	
It was a talc of courage.
And he spoke oi the "mother*, -wives

dear ones good bye not knowing,if they
