nearly three weeks ago, there,has
been, a number of conferences between A, B. Hodges; local manager of the Granby company >and a
committee of the union. Thus the
,entire matter has- been amicably
settled. 1
The scale accepted is about 50
cents per day lower than that
prevailing when the mines were
closed on November 11 " on account of the low price-of copper
'and high operating costs.. It is a
certainty, that the Granby. will
operate at ■> fullest, capacity 5 of
3000 tons of ore shipped and
smelted *r daily, as only on, this
scale can the company make oven
'a moderate profit on 12 or 13
cent copper.        .   * 0 ■'   .
The    announcement is the cause
of  the  greatest     satisfaction tonight, in Phoenix and in the Boundary generally.''   • '■

Bcale, iixed in 1900... On June 1st thoy
had received a very material increase,
but did not receive the samo rate of
wages as wns being- then paid in the

that tho rate of increase as given was
not sufficient, that they Hhould receive
tho same rate of wages as that paid in
the Boundary district, and thut the in-
crcasoasgiven discriminated in regards
to certain classes of labor. Thoy based
thoir demands for an increase on the
fact that tho cost of living-had materially increased since the old scale was
fixed, that the wages lu othor departments of Industry had increased during
the last 10 years from 25 to 100 por cent.;
that thoy woro entitled to tho eaino rato
ot wajjoH as that paid in tho Boundary
country, whore conditions are practically
tho samo as at Moyio, whlid nnd that
moro especially in tho caso of muckers,
in Hosslnnd and tho Boundary tho In-
crcaso has boon from 1G% por cent, to
80 por cont,, while In Moyio tho increase

The travelling and haulage roads and
the airways through the worked out
portions of the mines where the roof
and pavement have come, together,
have been kept open by taking down
the roof or taking up the pavement
and are now practically rock tunnels.
In this system of mining there are no
old workings left in which any accumulation of gas can occur. - o
■ From these facts I argue that no further subsidence of any importance will
occur in the surface overlying the seams
so far worked, and as the workings at
present extend to a„ point under the
brow of the hill—back of which the surface is more nearly, level—any further
cracks due to subsidence will bo in tlie
flatter country and free from nil bus--
picion of danger.
As to any danger from the subsidence
which has slrendy'taken place, I would
say there is none, for the reason that
tho strata forming, the mountain nre
hard, solid bedsof sandstone, conglomerate and argillite, quite unaffected by
water. These,strata arc merely horizontal, such dip _ as-they have being
into the hill, which'/eliminates any
possibility of there being any gener'nl

•and on the 4th 1. interviewed your in
formant—Mr. ;Bi <*-«■£—the Secretary of
the local Union, and learned from, liim
that the anticipated danger lay in the
fact that the extraction of the coal in
No. 1 and 9. Mines, Coal Creek, had
«aused a subsidence of^ the hill above
theso seams, which subsidence was
manifested by the opening of cracks in
tho higher rocky beds of which the
mountain is formed, and it was feared
by-many of the "inhabitants of. Coal
Creek that thoso fisBuree—some'of which
wero in rocky cliffs—would causo largo
fragments of,, the cliff to bocomo detached and that these would roll down
upon tho houses in tho valley, causing
a disaster Bimilar to that which occurred,
somo years back at Frank, Alberta.
As far as Mr. Biggs know, or I could
hear from others, there was no insinuation or expectation of danger in tho
minos mentioned, and tho supposed
danger' was entirely from tho surfneo
timtorial which It was thought might
roll down upon tho houses.    .
On tho 5th Inst. I went up to Coal

•■ The most recent,fissure had detached
a section of the bluff some'75 feet high^
.which,.toppling over, had fallen down
on the steepest part of the, general hillside, and the fragments of this rock fall
had rolled _ or been thrown, down .the
hillside for, somo distance, the piece
going furthest—a mass of some eighty
tons—being not over 100 yards from
the base of the bluff.
■This gives "a practical illustration
that tho slope of the hill is not sufficiently
steep to permit of boulders rolling any

nnd found everything in good ordor

In conclusion, I beg to ropprt thnt in
my opinion theso fissures do not offor

rolling rocks from tho hillside, nnd that
no further Investigation is required.

not     be     so many hank failures.
But we have seen instances where
the funds  of the banks  are   lent
out in such a manner that when a
case   of  emergency 'occur.1:,  it cannot" be  got  in., in -.time  to  supply
the" demands   of   .,he   anxious    de-,

.Why should the Canadian banks

■uftered but' lately from this  system, and" our ■ba,iking'iiiot-.tiii:.jon&

that is bound to occur from timo

daily output i.s in the neis'liWliood of
1,000 tons, and. about *150'men are employed in and around, tlie 'mines. Tlie
coal is almost anthracite, the principal
market ior it being in the Kootenay
district and Calgary. The coal dust
is mado into brickete,-which aire used
quite extensively by the C. P. 11.'com-'

At Canmoro there are a considerable

Put the Right Spirit Into Your Work
"     -  and Keep Your Ideals High. ,
Put the right spirit'into your work.
Treat your calling as, divine,, as a call
from principle. : If the thing Itself be
not important, the spirit in which you
take hold of it makes all the difference
, ln the world to you.' It can make or
mar the man. You cannot afford
.grumbling service or botched work in
your life's record.. You cannot afford
to form a habit of half doing things or
of doing them in the spirit of a drudge,,,
for this will drag its slimy trail through
all your subsequent career, always hu*
mlUatiug 3-011 at the most unexpected
' times. Let other people do tho poor
Jobs, tho botched work, If they will.
Keep your standards up, your ideals
high.     *
The attitude with which a man approaches his task has everything to do
with the quality and efficiency of his,
work and with its influence upon his
- character. What a man does is a part
of himself. It is the self expression of
.what he stands for. Our life work is
an outpicturing of our ambition, our
ideals, our real selves. If you see a
man's work, you see th(5 man.
No one can respect himself or have
