New York, May 11.—With both
the stock exchange and consolidated exchange closed today aud with
practically nothing doing on curb,
Wall street is very quiet. Although
the exchanges were not. open for
business nil the large brokerage
houses fe had (heir clerks at work
straightening out the accounts of
speculators and pulling (heir books
in order.
Many speculators went down
town to await the bank statement
and to get the London quotations
for Ameriean securities. At 2 p.
m. Lou Ion's prices generally showed advances, as compared with
the clone at New York yesterday,
the extreme rise being 18 points iu
Northern Pacific. All inteiests
in the financial world remain
absorbed in the great contest for
the control of the Northern Pacific and the rivalries, that havo
been caused by that battle.
London, May 11.—A special
meeting of the stock exchange committee has been summoned for
Monday, iu tho hope of reaching
a solution of the difficulty iu which
operators tthd brokers who have
givBi. iv-Vfor Northern Pacific for
the end of May and July find
themselves.
J. P. Morgan will be in London
Ibis afternoon. A conference will be
held aud it is hoped Loeb company
will be willing to relieve the situation. Iu the meanwhile there is
c insiderable anxiety.
New York, May 11.—A sensation has been caused at Montevideo, by the arrest of Miguel Her-
reray Obes, brother of a former
president of Uruguay. Colonel
Manuel Roderignez and Col, Clri-
aco Durgis have also been arrested.
There are accusations against other
prominent men in connection with
the conspiracy against the government.

PAY DAY   SYSTEM.
Pay day comes next week when
a very large sum, in the neighborhood of $200,000, will be distributed in Rossland camp. For reasons which business men and merchants understand very well this
this particular pay day has been
looked forward to with more than
usual interest.
There is one aspect of pay day,
however, that affects the wage
earner and merchant alike, concerning which little or nothing has
been said. Under the present system in force at the mines if a miner
works any time, say during the
current month of May, he receives
his pay /or that work on the 15th
of June, and a miner who is working steadily never gets paid up in
full to date unless he quits work,
so that the companies really pay
every 45 days and never up-to-
date except as mentioned. Just
why mining should be an exception to the general rule can probably be explained by the mine
managers, but the ordinary employe is paid by the week, fortnight or month, and when paid receives his wages to the date of
payment and not, as in the case of
the miners, to a date fixed arbitrarily two weeks in arrears.
The method works a hardship
lioth to the miner and the merchant. The former is obliged to
ask for credit and, from figures
submitted to the Would, this entails an increase in the cost of supplies of fiom 15 to 25 per cent. On
the other hand, as the merchants
have found to their cost,the system
has been productive ol many bad
debts. The question is an important one tc the community at large
and one which a labor commissioner might very well take up and
report on. All the other facts in
connection with the system of paying wages could be collected and
the views of the managers as well
the men set out.
The mine managers are not likely to change their system unless
pressure is brought to bear and a
good case made out for the change.
If the Rossland Board of Trade desires to take up a live local ques
tion and demonstrate the usefulness of that body to the community
at large, here is a golden opportunity.     	
OVER CAPITALIZATION.
Referring to the great necessity
of a mutual understanding between
the mine managers and their employes, the British Columbia Mining Record has this to say concerning the recent situation in labor
circles iu Rossland:
"How near, how Imminent it is
was clearly demonstrated at Rossland last month when a strike was
only averted by a narrow vote in
the miners' union. Probably we
have to thank the perception of
the miners that the industry was
in no condition to stand further
drafts on the returns to capital to
augment the proportion paid out
as wages that no strike took place.
It speaks highly for the moderation of the men that in the face of
grievances, which they consider well
founded, (whether they are or not)
they came to the conclusion that
the present time was not a suitable
time at which to declare a strike."
This praise of moderation is all
very well, but if financial journals
would get at the root of the chief
reasons why returns to capital are
so often  delayed   and  why mine
managers are often compelled to
refuse concessions they would like
to grant, they wouid attack the
system of over capitalization with
which almost every mining company in the province is cursed.
We commend to the notice of the
journalsin question an article recently written by Mr. G. 0. Buchanan
of Kaslo, in which the evils of over
capitalization are dealt with very
frankly. In the effort to pay dividends upon a watered capital mine
managers resort to measures they
would never otherwise dream of,
and as one result the wage earner
is  often the first to suffer.

Parsona Not Guilty.
Boston, May 11;—After being
out eleven hours and a quarter the
jury, in the case of Henry E. Parsons charged with the murder of
William T. Hammond in Char-
lottetowo last Bunker hill day, nt
2.25 this morning returned a verdict of not guilty. The prisoner
showed no signs of emotion when
the verdict was announced aud a
says that he was not in the least
surprised. Parsons was discharged
at once.
Mrs. Parsons was not there although who had stood by him faithfully throughout the trial. Which
began Monday, Parsons hail had

Contractor Bradbury.
Editor Evening World
Dear sir.—Will you kindly grant,
mo space in your paper to explain,
or rather to ninke known, the iliffi
eulty I had in getting my wuges
trom Mr. Bradbury, the contractor
for the federal buildings. I stinted
to work as 11 laborer 011 the 18th of
April and as I had been informed
that the government scale of wages
would be paid viz. $3 00 p«r day
and nine hours. 1 did not take the
trouble to ask Mr. Bradbury when
1 went lo work how much he paid.
Alter working until tlie 2(111) I was
fold t.» come and get my cheque.
I went, and found that my time
was made out at the rale of $'_.")(>
per day, which 1 refused. I then
made enquiries as to whether I was
entitled to J.'l.OO per day and laid
ray case before (lie trades and labor council. After waiting a few
days 1 was told by Mr. Woodside
(he secretary of the miners union,
that J would be paid $3.00 and to
eall for my money, which I did,but
before this, when I asked Mr.
Bradbury's book-keeper why I
was not paid the scheduled rate, he
said that $2.00 per day was all
Mr. Bradbury was going to pay
and If I thought I could get more
to try and collect, it. I would not
have taken tho trouble to write on
this subject, only that today I was
told by Mr. J. B. McArthur that
Air. Bradbury had informed him
that there was one man on the
works who would not call for his
money, beceuse he was affraid that
he would be paid off with $2.25
which sum he agreed to work for.
As I was the only man, as far as I
know, who refused to acoept the
the $2.50 per day, I have written
this in denial of Mr. Bradbury's
statement. I have explained my
position in the matter and positive-
lydeny that any gum was mention
ed when I Btarted work or auy
agreement made whatever. I may
state that I was preparing to communicate with the government re
my wages when I was met by Mr.
Bradbury and told to como and get
my money.
Yours truly.

THE ORE OUTPUT
Second Best Week in the
Year So Far.
NEARLY   TEN  THOUSAND
Six Shippers and a Great Total-
Centre Star and War Eagle
Are Increasing,
The ore shipments from Rossland
camp for the past week aggregate
9649 tons. This, while a remarkably good total, is lower than that
for the record week ending last
Saturday, when over 10,500 tons
of ore was sent out.
Owing to the mixed way the several classes of ore cars cars are now
used on the Great Northern railway for the Le Roi, Great Western and L,e Roi No. 2 shipments it
is difficult to arrive at a fair estimate of the tonnage. This week
the World has allowed 35 tons per
car for all these shipments, 31 for
for Centre Star and 30 for War
Eagle.
As' stated yesterday the corrected
smelter weights for last week's
shipments are not yet on file here,
so it is not possible lo give the
real total.
The shipments today include
the late shipments sent out last
Saturday over the Great Northern
—20 cars of I,e Koi ore—but not
the output over this line today
alter 2 o'clock. There will probably be another 20 carloads of Le
Roi sent out this evening.
Appended are the details of the
ore shipments for the past week
up to 2:30 today:
LeRoi  4701
Centre Star  1984
War Eagle     900
LeKoiNo.2  122".

Manager's Report to  London—Some

March for the] Le Roi No. 2 show that

and Annie mines, giving a total gross

159 or $9.05 per ton. Silver, $2817 or .84
per ton and copper $22,442 or $6.72 per
ton. The copper amounted to 130,013
lbs. Gold to 150? ozs., and Ihe silver lo
4695 az.
The total tonnage ahipped from the

»l65,425-
Mr. Bernard Macdonald In concluding hia last monthly repoit to London on
Le Roi, No, 2, says:
"Since the capacity ol the Northport
smelter was increased lo take sufficient
ore to alio«r for the opening ol stopts,
the result his be»n eitreoiely satisfactory. The true extent of the ore
shoots is just becoming known, and the
mines are ln fine condition to begin a
large continuous production.
