THENEWSPITZEE
Reorganization  of Company Effected.
A  NEW   PLAN   ADOPTED
Small Capitalization—Good Treasury Fund Available—
Dollar Shares.
Re.
eaders of tbe World have already had their attention directed
to the fact that a re-orgauizatiou ol
the Indian Chief Gold Mining Co.,
owning the Spitzee claim, is now
being carried out, and the World
is authorized by the management to
make the following statement with
regard to the new company which
is to be known as the Spitzee Gold
Mines, Ltd.
During the past six months it appears that a strong effort has been
made to re-float the property in
Loudon and at one time it seemed
probable that the control would be
taken over by a strong English syndicate. Owing, however, to the
collapse of all interests iu British
Columbia raining enterprises in the
London market the negotiations fell
through, but in the meantime the
development of the property has
been so pre-eminently satisfactory
that Messrs. Goodeve and^ Hewer,
the principal parties interested,
have determined to effect a re-or-
gaiuzatton of the company with a
view to enabling them to proceed at
once with further development
work without prejudice to any future arrangements for the disposal
of the property iu London or elsewhere.
The new company will take over
an area of about 41 1-2 acres, in
which is comprised not ouly the
Spitzee, but the claim lying to the
southwest, known as tlie Poolhen,
the possession of the latter ground
being most desirable, owing to the
fact that it carries the extension of
the Spitzee vein.
The capitalization of the new
company will be #350,000, divided
into 70,000 shares of a par value of
$5, so that in this respect the enterprise may be regarded as haviug
taken a step in a new direction, to
the abandonment of the time-honored British Columbian plan of
million dollar flotation.
In another still more important
respect the scheme merits approval
inasmuch as 40,000 shares, or four-
sevenths of the whole capital of
the company, are reserved for
treasury purposes. The remaining
30,000 shares, all of which arc to be
strictly pooled, will be divided in
the proportion of two-thirds to the
owners of lhe Spitzee and one-
lliiid to the owners of (he Fool hen
and arrangements are now being
made to dispose of a first issue of
treasury stock at par.value, i. e.
85.
With regard to the condition of
the property it may be said tha.
the working shaft on the Spitzee
has now reached a depth of H5 feet,
the intention being to sink lo the
100 foot level] when cross-culs will
be driven to the north and south
to ascertain the width of lhe ore
bodies. The opinion of the management at present being that the shaft
has been sunk more or less in the
center of a mineralized zone extending many feet on either side
to the north and south, and containing a number of seams of ore of
excellent quality. In support of
this view it may be mentioned that
ore to the value of over $2,000, has
already been shipped from the
present shaft, and further shipments   will   be   made   at regular
intervals as the work proceeds
Few prospects have ever been
opened in the Rossland camp which
can show a better record or whose
promise for the future appears to
be more encourrging.
Army Self-denial Week.
Tho annual week of self-denial
is one of the many signal ideas
which the Salvation Army has put
into energetic aud successful
motion for the advancing of the
cause of Christianity.
Local Salvationists are busy collecting for the fund. It is astonishing to what extent many pf the
leading officers and ladies of the
irganization cheerfully and spontaneously carry the practice ofself-
sacrafice, for no other motive than
the good of their fellow creatures,
and deny themselves during this
week of sugar, tea, coffee, meat and
of such things as many would consider absolutely necessary to health.
Tho Salvation Army is doing splendid work in its industrial homes,
rescue and. maternity homes, men's
and women's shelters established in
different centers in North America
while the world over, the Array has
about 500 similar refuges for the
fallen aud destitute. The self-
denial fund is considerably augumented by assistance from outside
friendsand the Army is coufidontt'iis
worthy effort will not be forgotten
by our citizens for feeding the
hungry, housing the homeless, caring for the orphans, saving the
drunkard and fathering into the
fold of Christ the outcast and
morally lost is certainly a worthy
causes.
Tuk World wishes tho organization all the success it so well deserves.

Northport May 29.—There is
practically no change in tho Lockout-strike situation at the smelter
here. Four men are at work moving the ore that comes down from

is quiet around the smelter and the
town.
The smelter company are offering many of the men concessions
to go to work and disband the union.
The breaking up of the union
boiug made a condition and no
man so long as he remains a member of tho union will be taken
on. None of the ra,eu have entertained the proposition and the company has not been able to get any
outsiders to go to work.

tual means of subsistence (where it
works little but barm to the race)
to tbe intellect (where it sharpens
the wits). At what level to place
tbe national minimum, and when
and where to raise it next-—these
will be the issues of twentieth century politics."
THE WAGE MINIMUM.
Sidney Webb, the English social
reformer writing to the Toronto
Globe last week, gives an interesting forecast of the political and
social life of the new cenl ury.
Mr. Webb says that twentieth
century politics, so far as home
affairs are concerned, will be*dominated by the idea of the compulsory maintenance of the standard
of life. The first object and purpose of the state will be that its
people shall live, and live well. But,
says the writer, "the mere preservation of life is not enough," and
he proceeds, at length, to give his
impressions of what the future domestic policy will be of all progressive and successful governments, and he claims that it will
all tend to raise the standard of
life, especially as regards all those
sections of the community which
fall below the common average.
"The chief instrument of the
progressive raising of the standard
of life will be the enforcement of a
national minimum, made possible
by an enormous extension of local
government, based on a comprehensive system of conditional grants iu
aid."
The law of a national minimum
of sanitation, education, leisure and
wages is referred to, and writing of
the wage minimum, Mr. Webb
says:
"There will be a national minimum of wages. No person will be
under any obligation to employ
another, but it will clearly be a condition of every contract of employment that its terms shall not be
such as will impair the efficiency of
the citizen-producer or diminish
the vitality of the race. To engage
labor at wages insufficient to repair
, the waste of tissue caused by the
employment is as demonstrably to
injure the community as to employ
operatives in insanitary workshops
or unventilated mines. Those
whose labor is not worth the mini
mum—the aged, tho crippled and
the blind; the mentally or morally
deficient; the epileptic and the
Chronically feckless and feebleminded—will no doubt continue to
be maintained, from motives of
compassion. But we are rapidly
learnin, that, of all the many ways
of maintaining those unable to
earn their full subsistence, the most
costly and extravagant is to allow
them to compete in the labor market, and thus drag down, by their
very infirmity, tbe standard of life
of those who are whole. There
are still people who simply cannot,
imagiue how a legal minimum wage
could possibly be enforced, just as
there were, fifty years ago, political economists who demonstrated
the impossibility of the factory acts.
As a matter of fact, the legal minimum wage can be seen in force
today in both Victoria and New
Zealand."
Concluding a review of all the
questions referred to in his forecast,
the writer is of the opinion that
"the enforcement by law of a na
tional minimum of sanitation, education, leisure and wages—already
foreshadowed iu our imperfect
legislation—will enormously in
crease personal freedom, utiinulate
every sort of useful competition
and augment the production of
wealth. Where life is abandoned
to unfettered competition, what is
known as "Gresham's Law" applies—the bad drives out the good
To prevent this evil result is the
main object of government. What
we havu to do is to trai.ster the
competitive pressure from the ae-
THE BYLAWS.
The small vote cast yesterday, only
some 190 rate payers going to the
poll, would seem to indicate that
there was no great euthusiasm
manifested in favor of the two propositions submitted by the council
to the people. But when the proportionately large number of rate
payers voting against both bylaws,
is taken into consideration, it will
be seen that something more than
mere opposition to the projects was
at work. The citizens as a body
undoubtedly want an extension of
the present water works system
and also desire a settlement of the
sewerage problem, and the vote
yesterday must not be taken as a
condemnation of the city engineer's
plans or au indication ttat the people are willing to do without either
scheme. We judge the vote to
mean very clearly, that remembering how former councils obtained
money for specific purposes and
just how the money so obtained
was spent, and also being in the
dark to a certain extent concerning
the two projects, a feeling of distrust in the present administration
was excited which resulted in the
defeat of the sewerage bylaw and
the passing of the water works
scheme by the narrow majority of
two.

The World's poet in sending
his contribution, "Glory and Beer"
which appeared yesterday, writes:
"It is not an attempt to belittle
Canadian loyalty and gallantry,
both of which are away beyond
question. Neither does it refer to
any 'smoker' in particular. It is
simply a mild protest against these
'men only' 'beer-eatiug' affairs
which are only too common. What
is'therc in the (?) reception of are-
turned soldier that our wives and
daughters may not hear? Can't
we devise something a trifle 'clean

night was the final passing of the
water works extension bylaw sanctioned by the ratepayers.
Alderman Clute was the only
absentee. Accounts were ordered
to be paid totalling $1,135.83, made
up as follows: Health and relief
committee $63.50, board of works,
$113.60 and lire, water and light
committee .#956.73. The chief
items being streets pay roll for
week $93.60, water works pay
rolls, (3) $149.85, H, Mueller & Co.
for water works supplies, $575.53
aud duty on same $175.30.
A bylaw amending the early
closing bylaw will be introduced at
the next meeting of the council.
Just what the ameudmeht will be
was not stated. The tax rate to be
levied for the current year will be
embodied iu a bylaw next week.
An effort will be made to clean
up a portion of the City Park so
that it can be utilized and an endeavour will be matle to sell some
portions of the park to provide a
fund for a central recreation ground.
Alderman Hamilton directed attention to the great annoyance to
citizens aud the menace to the public health caused by the unsavory
odors from the city dump and
Burns' cattle yard aud slaughter
honso. When the wind blew up
the gulch, said the alderman, this
vile smell was wafted among the
residences aud was extremely unpleasant as well as unhealthy. A
report will be made in  the matter.
Citizens residing at tho east eud
of Second avenue petitioned for a
standpipe at the east terminus of
the present water main, urging that
tneir present supply of water was
drawn from a neighboring frog
pond.
The council decided to bring the
question of spark art-esters for locomotives to the attention of the
railroad companies again, previous
communications ou the topic having failed to elicit au answer.
Alderman Rolt asked for au inquiry into the milk supply of the
city. He said that so far as he
was aware there was no reason for
alarm at the pre ieut time, but it
w.us wise to have a report dealing
with the geueral conditions affecting the city's milk supply. The
medical health officer will report to
the council.
Incidentally—merely incidentally—readers of tho Fvenino
Would will noto that the water
works extension bylaw, which
carried, was advertised in, aud supported—mildly supported by—this
newspaper. While the sewerage
scheme, which was defeated, waB
advertised in, and warmly supported by "the new management" of

THE VOTE
Water Worka Bylaw Only   Carried by
Two Votes—The Figures.
There were 190 votes polled yesterday upon both) bylaws. Three
ballots were spoiled. One on Ihe
water works and two on the sewerage bylaw.
On two of them the voters placed
four crosses aad on the third just a
single mark was placed against the
bylaw, in place of one single cross
required by the municipal law.
However, if nil three votes had
boon counted in, it would not
ehaugo the result as pub'lshed.
As a three-fifth vtito in favour of
each bylaw on the total vote polled
was necessary lo cany them it will
be seen that tho waterworks bylaw
was passed only by two votes and
the sewerage scheme was defeated
by four. The necessary number of
votes to pass both bylaws being II4
and 112, and the vote in favour
totalling 116 and 108 respectively.
After visiting the scene of the
Gillan fatality in the Nickel Plate
shaft the jury continued their investigation yesterday afternoon and
after hearing some additional evidence they returned a verdict finding that the cage had been raised
while Gillan was at work on it by
some unknown person giving the
signal contrary to (ho rules of tb_
company.
A rider was added to the eft'ttct
that iu the opinion of the jury
"and that wo aim) would add that
wo consider that the bell rope was
in a dangerous position to men using it on that level."
bell rope was placed in a position
of danger to those who had occasion to use it.

STOCK MARKETS
A Brisk Morning on the
Rossland Exchange.
NEARLY   19,000   SHARES
Centre Star and Rambler-Cariboo
the Sellers—Prices a Little
Lower All Round.
There was a brisk movement ou
the local exchange today when 18,-
800 shares changed hands. Centre
Star sold lower and 5800 shares
went at between 44c and 40_c.
Rambler-Cariboo was in demand
and is firm at 29_c.
All prices are down from the
temporary raise of last week and
doubtless the troubles at Northport
are partly responsible.
Republic which was quoted at
80c some monts ago closed at 10j_c
offered, and 9o bid this morning.
The stock would seem to be unduly
depressed but the continued drop is
the result of the flaring announcements made of the alleged success
of the mill last year contrary to the
fact, as every one now knows.
It will be noticed in today's issue
that two railways are racing each
other to connect Republic with
Grand Forks and when these lines
are completed this fall it will he pos
sible to treat the Republic ores very
cheaply at the Grand Forks smelter and this alone should steady all
Repnblic stocks of value.

A Suggestion.
Editor of tho World,
Sir—With reference to the finding of the jury at the Gillan in-
queHt last night aud iu view of the
fact that Gillan is the third victim,
within a short time iu the Nickel
Plate shaft, of faulty signalling, I
think that the fact should have
beou brought out that all hands,
bosses included, are or have been in
the habit of using the bell line, in
going about the mine, and the usual
practice is to ring for the cage immediately upon its reaching the
bottom, or coming to a stand
still, as indicated by watching the
cable at the stations.
As a future precaution I would
suggest that all mines should be
supplied with au extra Hue and
bell, usually termed change bell,
and hung in the pump and air
aparlment of the shaft. For use
by persons other than the station
tenders, and no person under any
circumstances except the petson
looking after the cage, should be
permitted to put a hand to the
cage lines.
Yours &c.
Miner,
Just rereived  a consignment  ol

BOUNDARY
RAILWAYS
Grand   Forks  and Republic  Road
Under Way-The  Great
Northern.
The past week has witnessed
the sensational entrance of the
Great Northern directly into the
railroad situation as it concerns
Republic says the Miner of that
catnp. While good progress is being made at the Grand Forks &
Republic road toward tho point of
construction. The party of engineers under tho control of Edwin
Hall Warner, which has been at
work around Curlew, has returned
to Republic and is now eugaged on
office work iu connection to their
operations iu the field. A party
is now on Trout creek completing
the survey over the Tom Thumb
divide.
E. G. Hoyt, who has been en •
gaged iu settling the damages to
Indian allottmonts for the department, has returned to Republic
and reports the work nearly finished. Major Anderson has been
hurriedly called to Washington, it
is presumed, to advise the department on matters connected with
the final actions on the claims.
C. H. Ferguson, representative
of Deeks & Co., contractors of Spokane, has been along the line for
the past week aud it is probable
that the contracts for construction
will be Bigued iu two or three
days. Tho settlement of Indian
claims will be made iu ample time
for the commencement of work t u
June IS, as announced by Mr. Manly
when here last week.
W. C. Morris, who has been enj
gaged iu tho legal wor!~ of tho
company, securing right of way,
etc., has returned to Republic.
While in Spokane he gave out the
statement to the press that the rolling stock had boon ordered, and it
is also understood that ' the steel
has been purchased.
The Great Northern.
A party of 30 Great Northern
surveyors with full camping outfits
arrived on Monday and made camp
about two miles east of town. They
have been busily engaged ever
since in the work of locating a Hue
of road to Republic They came
through Grand Forks-on Sunday
from along Kettle river, having
been engaged on the eastern section of the road.
As the portion of the line from
Curlew to Rep tblio has not been
laid out heretofore it is presumed
that the big road intends to make a
spurt and try to enter the field
ahead of its rival. The line along
Kettle river from Grand Forks to
Midway has already been located
and only 21 miles between Repub-
