nieeting Thursday,, at which
operators1 submitted a modified
proposition for ;the consideration of
thejinincrs, and an adjournment until yesterday3 was taken to" * consider
the inew offer/ but- as it differs radically from that" of the miners, there
was j not much hope,, of arriving at a
setUement upon'suck a basis.
•■ Tlie feeling that the 'operator's were
not]disposed to act openly and '"' in
sincerity'hais: lieen growing stronger,
and]it looked "yesterday ae though
public sentiment was beginning' to be
felt {as against the tactics pursued
by .them. ' '"
When "confronted by: the miners on
Thursday with the statement that if
they, had no proposition'to "submit
to'-.them they might'as well say good'
day.Jand go home,' the operators said
theyj were unwilling to make such a
proposition in open meeting,., but
would submit'one at a private"meet-
ing-- j ,.;,.__
The miners * acceeded to this,' and
adjournment to yesterday was taken,

knew'that the reason 0/ the* adjournment ■ the day before was" because they
had refused to'go ineo ...he scale committee and discuss- the scale submit-'
ted by the operators, which wns preposterous, inasmuch- as it required
the reduction of the present wage
scale .in some cases, ns much ns fifty
per cent,, and the addition of a
claiise to the present agreement ' lo
tlie effect that when cither parly
lire'alis the proposed' agreement, the
iiew contract, Is to be considered'mill
and void.
.So far the press had done nothing
lo harm either side, and tlie operators had only spent the time in
voting down every .suggectloii or
proposition without discussion,
At first they had raised objections
as to whether the delegates had sufficient power to make binding, agreements, aiid then again Hint they hiid
not the power to sign nny ngrccmc-m
binding or otherwise.
From start lo finish they'have not
so far conceded one single point to
the miners.

Dear Sir—As there aro a groat number of new men arriving and starting to
work in thu mines here—men who have
never had the Wolf lamp to tiso beforo-
I? thought a little ad vice* and. a, few
pointers might be very acceptable to
them, and, in fact, to innnyofithe old
hands working for the company.
Thn Wolf lamp is so constituted that
it makes n.very UReful lamp if' treated
in the right way, but if-it is not used
properly it becnnieB .1 very; dangeroua
hunp, not onlv to the man who has
charge, of it,-hut to every individual
employed in the mine; hence the following instructions:    - -        -.....->',    ■
When trying for gas the light should
be, lowered to about an°e:glith bf an inch
of flame, then put iip gently And gradually^ until the gas can'lie seen on the
light. Then take your lamp away as
gently and gradually as possible,- Don't.
011 any account, draw the lamp away
with a vigorous or rapid motion. Don't
try for gaR with 11 ful! light. ■ Don't stay
in a place wli-re. a quantity of gas is
found to exist'. ' Always keep an eye on
Vf».n»»_~lom»i.'»K1r...«»n_*,.ll_S l~-._;. */-     _
because in heat the light of this lamp
wijl increase. Don't, on any account,
workjwith a*glass cracked lamp; never
listen to what others say or •juggest:
I)on'lput its light out for tluupurpose
of laying it "dbwii"lh"any place, for tlfero
is,always danger.owing to the itifiam
able nature of the matcheH of this lamp;
Put the light out and take tlie lamp out
of the mine right away. n Don't tnmt it
to any,hoy to,take it out; do this your-
self. When working don't let your lamp
swing on your belt, neither stand it on
tlie floor. Ilnng it on tlie limber in a
convenient place mi*,, of- the way of tlie
swinging of your pick. Noyor go away
aiid leave your lamp in the'plaee; take
it witji you. If, at anv tline, you hug
another mini's lamp with cracked glass
tell him immediately, of It, ami if lie
makes any doimires or rofuses to take It
out, take It yourself and report to the
fire boss or overman. Hy adhering
Btrlctln to the foregoing, (he risk mul
danger In (.really reduced, ,
Ah these lines are strictly for tlie edl-
flcfttloii of our fellow workmen and the
avoidance of citlaNtrophleH, I hope I nm
not asking too much of you to publish
them In » few inmios of tho Ledger,
Kindly oblige yours, etc.,

receiving marked copies of-the. Ottawa Free Press' containing, long ed-
t"t<>rij.ls on various matters of public
interest,- all written from a strictly
pai'ty point of view, and designed to
.show the shortcomings of the Con:
of ihe Liberals in their dealing with
ihe'afigirs of state.'

^hb'wn that the attacks upon Turiff,-

stili of malicious cnluminies turned

Two Good Boxing Bouts Pulled Off
s^and Both Advertised as for the
5^% Championship of Canada
There was a good turn-out at Coal
Creek    Wednesday   night    to    witness
the .glove contest  between  Kid Foley'
and  Tom- Boweu  for  the. lightweight
'   championship of  Canada,, and a Sioo
'purse' and   gate  receipts. '    •
The cootest   was a clean   one, but
• Foley  proved   too  much'of  a    boxer
for  Boweu,   and   hada llie    advantage
of  the battle all .the way   through.
In the fifth round' Boweu, had to be
assisted  lo  his  corner,   bi't  recovered
in time for the next.   Si* times    he
" • went ' down   upon    the     Kid's    hard
pounding,  and in. the seventh    round
--. he failed to coiiie to the scratch    on
. tune. '
..  The gate receipts were Sin.
Dan -Ferguson   acted      very   acceptably as referee.
As a preliminary  to ,the big     con-
.   test,   Dan  McCarthy,   Foley's   trainer,

The house at Ottawa, debated for'ff
whole dajr on a, resolution declari ig.
that the, British tariff. preference
should be "allowed only on'goods imported through Canadian porta: The
motion was amended by the premier,
who added tlie proviso that- the pel-
icy should not go into effect until
authorized ' by * order-in-council. ; The,
date mentioned by Sir Wilfrid Laur-
ter was 1913, aix years i from ; now,

finished. This shelves. the question
for the life of the present -:id * the
next parliament.
Three years ago all the ministers
supported 'the resolution. in the same
terms as tht ont whicli is now headed off with this dilatory amendment.
They have modified their views since
then or have been influenced. But the
tariff of this year shows a more rapid diauge of opinion on the question. As introduced in November'the
tariff gave no preference to' Canadian
porta. As Mr. Fielding antended the
bill oa February 14th, it was ' provided that preference should be allowed only ou raw sugar imported
whan it came "by ship to a port in
Canada from a British country." On
March 15th Mr. Fielding abandoned
the ■ Canadian port restriction und
amtiidtn the clause so that the pref-"
erence would be allowed on sugar
brought lu by foreign ports. It will
be seen that the ministerial mind is
changing with startling rapidity.

In a recent aadresa one of tbe parasite defenders of tha corrupt and
predatory tactics practiced by some
_of_bor financiers  and'' "captaina of
industry asierted that all laboring
men got as maels. compensation as
they were entitled to and some more
than they, were. entitled ,.„toi." j < At the
risk of being accosed leu majesty we
take exception to the statement of the
pampered puppett ot wealth,; It Is
conceded by all persons competent to
speak upon the question, that six
hundred dollars a year is the* lowest
amount that can reasonably be called
a living wage. In his recent book,
written after earefolly1. gathering
statistics .oft the subject, Dr. Ryan
assures us that more than fifty per
cent, ot the laboring men of our
country do not average six hundred
dollars a year. How, then, can any
one reasonably maintain . thati ail
laboring men ..are setting »b rauoh
compensation as theyare entitled to?.
To do so one would be compelled to
adopt the maxim: "The laborer, is
(not worthy) of Mi hire.1' In our
opinion there ia no occupation, no
matter how unskilled or how mental
the labor, that the workman Is not
entitled to a living wage,for hlo
services. It the gentleman tn ques:
tion was compelled to exchange
salaries with a bIx huidred dollar a
venr laborer he would soon change
his opinion on the question of! every
man getting as much compensation
as he is entitled to, He would! find
that no matter how adept he and r his
wife might be in household economy,
such a salary would not begin to
purchase the, comforts of lite. Jit is
amusing to observe the false reason-
fug and the Inconsistent statements
men are compelled to resort to when
they oppose and antagonise organized
Wo remember tne day when wo
sat In n court room,witnessing a trial
ot several men who were charged
with contempt bf court. These men
had violated an Injunction issued by
the famens Judge Jackson during it
strike ol street oar employes who had
received 16 cent* an hour and were
demanding. 20 cents., On the day
that Judge Jackson was sentencing
these men for violating his Injunction
ho took advantage of the opportunity
to deliver a discourse, from tbe
bench, for the benefit of the community. After Insisting, on the
Importance of projecting men In their
alienable right to,work for whom
tlmy plpaaWI, nnrlar what condition*
they pleated and for what wages
they pleased, and condemning
orgnnlied labor for disturbing the
harmony or the Industrial world, by
Inciting strikes and lu "attendant
evils," Judge Jackson told of what
a great sacrifice he had made In
devottug Ms life to the enforcement
of the law, saying, "Hy salary waa
•carecly sufficient to support myself
and family In decent oomfbrt."
Jackson'• salary wm $5,000 > year.

(condemns organized labor for distatb-
ing industrial liarmpny. by,/jjnciting"
men to demand $624 a year for. their
services.:{ And he; furthermore j.-in-
sisted that if we did not cheek'' this
tendency,  "grass would be~ growing
on the'streets of oiir iiew prosperous
city."   It .is "eight, years since we
heard Jackson deliver, this discourse
but' It, seems, that .the same kind of
argument is being used to-day,   We
will admit that the cost of living in
some stations oi life is greatbr than
in others, and that the people in those
stationB.ot life are entitled to greater
wmpensation because of that fact,bat
we are not wlliing to admit that the
proportion shonldbe as great as it is
at present, and we emphatically protest againstthe unreasonable assump.
tion that the man who must' depend
upon manual labor for his livelihood
is not entitled to sufficient compensation te enable him to support- himself
and' family  In reasonable comfort.
And while there .are many trades in
which men are getting; a fair rate of
wages,   for  which they can thank
organized labor, still there are great
numbers who are not yet getting as
much   compensation   as, thev   are
entitled to.   The right of a man to
work for whom, how and when he
pleases has no place in an intelligent
discussion < No man has a right to'
work under conditions that injure the
health0 of his neighbors,  or under
conditions that will compel his fellow
workmen to accept less compensation
than will allow them to live in comfort.   We care not what the laws of
the land' may say on the .subject 5
such a contention cannot be supported
in  morals, or in   justice.—Potter's

J On the evening of January 28, at a
dinner given by the Gridiron Club in
New, Tork, President Roosevelt is '.
said to have delivered, an ominioue
warning ^to* the- trusts.,., fThii» trust

at the.dinner,by such -,menas.»J.- P.
Morgan, j H, ■•■H.'_;.:Rogejg£Mdilother

press reports,->the-president, arouBed
by the utterances of Senator Foraker
shaking his finger at Morgan;: and
Rog'trs, and-speaking with, much
vehemence said:
■* "If the gentleman are "not* willing
to accept the action pt the. conservative . class, which is ready to aiToj*d
protection alike to. rich and poor, I
will, say to you now that \irlien_ you
have disposed ot us by^yonr machina-
tibnB you will find yourselves face [to
face with a people who believes It has
been deprived of its rights and a
mob which docB not have tho least
respect for. riches. .You, can take
your choice.'!     .   ,-i ,.*.>.!'
Will this grave waralng be heeded
or will the trusts continue to rob and
oppress the people, defying law and
human rights, until bobio of the
