bodies have been recovered and
three more are known to be in the
mine.
It was discovered yesterday
tbat the mine is on fire. The rescuing party distinctly felt the heat
and was beaten back in its attempts to reach and recover the
three remaining bodies in the
mine. An inquiry will be demanded by tho miners to fix the responsibility.

How the American Invasion is Panning Out in the Old
Country.
London, April 2.—A parliamentary paper issued this morning
gives correspondence respecting the
comparative merits of the American, British and Belgian locomotives now in use in Egypt. In a
dispatch to the foreign secretary,
Lord Lansdowne, December 3rd,
covering a number of reports received from railroad officials, the
British diplomatic agent and consul-general in Egypt, Lord Cromer,
draws the general conclusion that
the main reason why so many
orders for railroad equipment have
recently been given to the United
States is that the American firms
are able to execute them with extraordinary rapidity, due largely
to the system of standardization.
In respect to price, Lord jCromer
finds the British firms can hold
their own where special designs
have to be executed. With respect to the quality the British
work is at least equal and often
superior to American and Belgian
work, while in consumption of coal
the British engines have a decidi d
superiority over the Americans,
though not over the Belgian engines.
Thc British manufacturers weak
point is delay in executing orderB.
The reports enclosed show that the
American tenders promised delivery within one-third of the time
required by the British firms,
while they offered to supply standard locomotives of equal suitability
19 per cent below the British,
though the latters tenders for locomotives built on Egyptian specifications were lower than the American offers.

In 181I-1 an act was passed in
New Zealand with amendments in
'96 and '98 which is known as the
industrial conciliation and arbi
tration act. Since this law has
in effect, with its amendments,
there has not been a strike in New
Zealand. The law encourages the
formation of trade unions which
are registered. The central court
of arbitration has the power to
enforce its decisions, in caBe of re-
fuBal to obey a fine up to $2,500

WANT RECOGNITION OF UNION
Long and   Arduous   Struggle ie
Anticipated    by   the
Men.
Dubers, Pa., April 2.—All of the
bituminous coal mines of the Rochester and PittBburg Coal and Iron
company are idle ti day. The resolutions declaring for a strike were
obeyed by all of tlrV men, and as a
consequence ten thousand men are
idle. The final clause of the strike
resolution, reads:
"No resolution of questions in
dispute 81-ail be recognized unless
rendered by the properly authorized committee and the officers of
the organization." This means
that the men will insist on recognition of their union, and is also
interpreted aB indicating a long
itruggle, as the Rochester and
Pittsburgh company has always refused recognition of union laborers
and has insisted on dealing with
its employes as individuals.

Fine wines and liquors at the International Liquor Store,
London, April 2.—It has been
suggested that the train wreck near
Barberton, Transvaal Colony,
March 30lh, resulting in the death
of 89 soldiers and lhe wounding of
45 others, nearly all of whom belonged to the Hampshire regiment
was caused by the Boers, but Lord
Kitchener reports that it was accidental. The train was descending
a steep grade when the engine aud
ilyer trucks struck the track and
turned over,
Details of the train wreck show
that after leaving Barberton, the
engineer lost control of the train
on the down grade and for three
miles, it went at the rate of eighty
miles an hour. The engine jumped
the rails at a sharp curve, with five
trucks filled with soldiers, a terrific smash-up followed and the
boiler of the engine exploded. The
engineer and fireman was killed.
Six of the injured soldiers have
since died.

London, April 2.—A despatch
from Pretoria made public this
evening announced that the Second Orageon Guards fought a
sharp rear guard action near Bos-
chamskoop during the evening of
March 31st. Four officers are
known to have been wounded but
no further details of the casualties
have been received.
The column was commanded by
Col. Lawley, who detached tbe
dragoons with the object of surprising the Boer laager reported to
have been located ten miles east of
Boschamskoop, The dragoons
found the Boers strongly posted
and the burghers were subsequently
largely reinforced with the result
that the dragoons had to fight a
hard rear guard action in order to
regain the main column.
The heavy firing called up Col.
Lawley and his troopB, who drove
off the Boers. The latter's loss is
reported to have been heavy.

City  Fathers  Really  Got
Down to Business
Last Night.
At the meeting of the city council last night at the city hall the
mayor and all his aldermen were
present, nearly establishing a record. There was some business
done—a bill was introduced for the
prevention of the spread of tuberculosis which means that people
expectorating on the sidewalks in
future will be arrested. Beyond
this the early closing amendment
bylaw passed its third stage.
Dr. Reddick submitted a report
on the late smallpox epidemic hut
it was turned over to the health
committee for report. In the
meantime just ovor #1000 was voted to covor expenses.
City Solicitor Abbott who has
been collecting sums due to tho
city has found some trouble and
reported accordingly to the council
who resolved that in future in case
of difficulty he should confer with
the finance committee.
The question of new sidewalks
came up and was referred to the
city oiigineer for report. The fact
of the matter is that there is no
fund to build these walks and unless the citizens get down to the
frontage plan they will, in all
probability, have to wait for a
long time before their natural
wishes are gratified.

A LESSON.
New Zealand has had her trial.
She was plunged in a bloody and
costly war with the savage Maori
tribe that laBted from 18G3 to 1808.
She has had her army of the unemployed, her strikes, her tramps,
her paupers, and a plutocracy. She
has pretty near got rid of them all
by the enactment of a few common
sense laws. She has made sweating dens impossible; she has nearly emptied her jails and poor
houses and today there is lesB
crime, less poverty, lesB misery,
lesB tramps, lesB paupers, and
more prosperity per capita in
New Zealand than any other nation in the world. New Zealand
has not stopped progress; from
now on she will enact more and
more simple legislation. Her people are intelligent, more'bo than
any other nation. The number of
people unable to read or write in
New Zealand is less per capita
than in any other nation. She
has been wise in the past. She
will show greater wisdom in the
future.—Ex.
TELLING FIGURES.
"Faint heart ne'er won a fair
lady" is an old and   true adage.
Dame Fortune, that coy but   well
jointured lady, was never yet won
except by the bold wooer.   That is
the trouble with a good many people in this city.   They are afraid.
They do   not  know.   They   only
hope things will   be all right but
they do little to help that roseate
future along.   If it was not for the
firm faith of the sturdier, wiser citizens of this camp it would have
been deBerted long since,     Things
looked   blue  along   in   1897 and
things have slackened   up   somewhat since at intervals but a glance
at the statistics of   the town will
show that   it  has   adva'nced   materially from the incorporate camp
of 18!KS.   There is really no reason
lor this pessimism.     Much of it is
due to an effort made at lirBt to exploit this camp as one   in  which
high valueB and huge seams were
combined.   Such a condition is not
known to prevail anywhere.   The
famous   mines   of the   Rand, are
hardly of  a  more   extensive   formation than those ol Rossland, and
yet their  values  are   considerably
lower.    Hut Johannesburg   has always had the luck  to have a band
of pioneers who have believed in
itB future despite   the   most   outrageous conditions with which they
had to contend.     Hence its prosperity.   The Johannesburg board
of trade is [no   supine rellection of
the opinions of  an interested and
doubting minority.
The truth of the matter is that
the camp is low grade but has
quarries of ore. The only point
that is worth considering is the
cheap mining and treatment of
that ore. In this consideration
comes the rate of treatment, that of
freight, and that of lluxes. Now
what does it matter if the government own thc railroads and the
smelters and the coal mines? Itis
merely a question of getting the
cheapest work done, if the government can do it more cheaply let
it be so done. There is no use of
jibbing like a badly broken horse
if some one whispers the dread
word "socialism." Lord Salisbury
sayB we are all socialists, more or
less, nowadays. It is not a question whether the proposed remedies
are socialistic or not. Will they
cheapen rates? If not what will?
jJJ the RoBBland  mines   paid   last
year $145,000 for the transport of
ore for a few miles, whose fault is
it that thc charge waB not $30,000?
If the mines are paying $11 for
coke from Duluth, Minnesota,
whose fault is it that coke cannot
lie obtained  for one-third   of that
price
If the government ignorantly
taxes the life out of the mining industries whose fault is it that a
deputation of mining men is not
rfent to persistently teach the administrators the error of their
ways?
But cheap freight, cheap fuel,
cheap llux means that $0 rock in
this camp will pay here every bit
as well as it does in Johannesburg.
And if such ore can be made to
pay what would be seen inside of a
year? The Le Roi has a capacity
of 1000 tons a day, the Le Roi No.
2 of TOO, the War Eagle and Centre
Star of about as much more each,
the Nickel Plate of 500 and the
Kootenay mines of at leaBt 700.
These alone total 4300 tons daily,
to which would soon be added the
product of other mineB, such as the
California, Homestake, and half a
hundred others, which, in the beginning, would at least double this
estimate and, in time, would increase it three and four fold. Instead of having some 1000 workers
here in the mines there would be
ten thousand, and a city of the
size and power of Johannesburg
would spring up in Trail creek
valley.
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
Smith Curtis is getting well
abused by a oortain section of the
provincial press. It is not probable that he will be left alone until
he stops working in the interests
of labor. The greatness of his efforts can be measured by the
amount of the abuse.
The Nelson Miner says that the
cost of coke is $4 per ton for pro'
duction and that there is no profit
in that figure. In the same article
it states that thj^cost of coal iB $2
per ton. Now as coke is to coal as
1)5 is to 100 there is there is therefore $3 worth of coal in one ton of
coke. Hence, according to this delightful statistician, it costs $1 to
bu in a ton of coke. Will any com'
petent engineer endorse such figures? And will anybody say that
there is no profit in $2 a ton coal?
The Victoria Colonist is now attacking Sir Charles Dilke for "bad
legislation" in introducing a similar bill into the British house to
that which Smith Curtis has
brought into the provincial legislature. It says in effect that the
Taff Vale decision made no new
law; it simply put a meaning to
the old one. This is playing with
words. When a new law is wanted on the subject it is the duty of
the legislature and not of
the judiciary to frame it. The
opinion of the people's representatives, and not of any one person,
ia wanted when legislation affecting large bodies of the people is
neceBBary,

A  PROFITABLE   UNDERTAKING
Cheap Rates and Well Paid Labor—
The Telephone and Telegraph
Monopoly.
New Zealand built her railroads,
completing the firat Hue in 1863.
Tho number of miles now in operation is about 2,200. The building of the roads was done directly
by the nation, and the workers
were, and still are on such work,
allowed to elect their own foreman.
The pay on the railroads averages
about 30 per cent higher than the
wages on our American roads; and
the GOO railway hands have an 8
hour work day. You can ride
thirty miles for 10 cents and first
class Bervice iB rendered the people.
The annual net profit of the New
Zealand railroads averages $2,220-
000.
The government also owns the
telegraph and telephones, the rateB
being about 500 per cent less than
"our" Western Union monopoly.
Both pay a profit. The workers
enjoy the 8 hour work day and
weekly half-holiday. The government aleo conducts the express
business to the benefit of all the
people.—Ex.
Clam Chowder free day and   night

Tennyson could take a comparatively worthless   scrap   of  paper,

That's genius.
Vanderbilt can write a. fewwords

A mechanic can take a raw material worth $5 and carve it up into ornaments worth $500.—That's
skill.
Your wife can buy a cloak for
$15 but prefers one at $50.—That's
natural.
We can write our check for$300-
000, but the bank wouldn't cash it-
—That's rough.
If you are a business man you
can place your card in the Evenino

Factory Legislation, Truck
Acts, Etc., at the Antipodes,
The New Zealand factories act of
1894 provided for the complete inspection of all factories, the word
"factory" meaning any place in
which two or more people are im-
employed. Children under 15
years of age are not permitted to
work in factories. The law compels all employers to grant a half
holiday each week, with full pay.
Good ventilation and sanitary conditions, the guarding of machinery
fire escapes, etc., are enforced. The
half holiday ako prevails in the
stores, banks, etc.
The employers' liability act protects the workers, and provides for
compensation for irijury.
The workmen's wages sctenableB
the workman to obtain his wages
24 hours after they are due.
The truck act abolishes the
"pluck me" stores. This was enacted in 1890.
The Workmen's lien aot, '95,
gives priority of claim for wages.

REFERENDUM LIQUOR BILL.
Progress of the Vote Now Being Taken In Winnipeg
Winnipeg, April 1.—The weather
today is all that could be desired
for polling a large vote on the referendum of the liquor act. In
Winnipeg the only appearance of
anything unusual being on is the
fact that the saloons are all closed
tight. Both sides are reported to
be working hard and as the polls
do not close until 8 o'clock in the
city, a pretty large vote will likely
be recorded.

Bernard Macdonald Loses
Another Mine.
DIRECTORS   PROFESS   GRIEF
Possible Removal of Our Optimistic
Engineer to Another
Sphere.
The recent meeting of the RosBland Great Western and of the
Kootenay Mines in London is of
Bome interest to the camp, in so
far as it will probably mean a
change in the personnel of theBe
mines, and an amalgamation of the
two companies into one. A com
mittee has been formed for this ex
preBS purpose, on the plea that ae
the shareholders are practically
the same, and as thc management
is also one a great saving can be
made along these lines. Nothing
transpired as to what was intended
with regard to further developments on these properties, and
therefore interest centres on the
resignation of Bernard Macdonald
which, rumored before in this
camp and in this paper, is now
officially confirmed.
According to the directors, Mr,
Macdonald's resignation does not
necessarily take effect until December next, and in the meantime
he is the consulting engineer of the
two mines mentioned and of the
"Prince," as the Le Roi No. 2 is
known on the London stock exchange. The directors say that
they will endeavor to procure a
wiihdrawal of the resignation, but
lodk with complacency on the fact
that in the event of thc resignation
being carried into effect William
Thompson will still be to  the fore.
New York rumors point to a
change being effected in the management of these mines in the person of Captain Gifford of the Hall
mines, and a possible transference
of Bernard Macdonald to another
sphere of action at Nelson, where
he will doubtless be hailed with
enthusiasm by every union man
around.

The Only Mistake.
Colonel Patrick Henry Winston
was pondering deeply. He was
strangely silent. Finally he opened hiB mouth and spake.
"Do you know," he asked, "that
the Lord Almighty has only made
one mistake since the beginning of
time, only one?"
"No, colonel, what was that?"
asked his friend,
"Why in   not   drowning Noah
when he drowned the remainder of
