U 'had been suggested that legislation ot this character was lvcvoud the
proper scope of the provincial legislature, being in effect nn interfernnce
with trade and commerce. Since no
attempt was made to regulate, wages,
the Nanaimo member could not see
tlie suggi-tiicri legislation in this iigbt..
■1'here was nlwavs a remedy for the
einuloyers if the shorteiiiu-; of hours
alone was unprovided for. Certain un-
. written laws controlled the situation,
the primarv law of supply and demand having much inilueucc. Ii the
cinplpy-ers lound that thev were unable to operate at a profit under the
readjusted hours of labor, thev
would very quickly even matters up
bv the" variety of methods left4 to
them. Thre* mentis iv-erc, commonlv re
resorted to—reducing waires, inlensi-
feing bibor, or introdtieing imnrov-

Machinery for Oil Wells
From  the "Mcleod Gazette.—
Four and a half carloads of machinery, the latest und best standard oil rigs for drilling oi, wells, aie
'on;the way from Toledo, Ohio, for
the' Canadian Northwest Oil Company, who own ly-L'o acres of land iu
the'-Flathead country about i!t miles
south ot Pincher creel*. There i.s sonic
local capital in the company but the
most or it belongs to Victoria men,
prominent among whom are T. HI.
Henderson, wholesale druggist—assoei
,ated with J).- \V,*llole in the drug merger—-Capt. Xewcoinb, contractor for
thc dredging of Victoria harbour, and
A,. Maxwell Mnir, C, li.
The company has exposed some
shale, beds and made nniilvsrs. There
are two springs of naturalized gas
uojv showing at (he surface of the
ground. This gas is nn* exhalation
front oil beds and is a sure indication
of the presence or an oil reservoir.
"It i.s the best oil bed on tiie continent," snvs "Mr. Varlow, expert for
the company. "The percentage of refilled oil lo crude oil is 7'). In Pcn-
sylviiiiin it in fid per cent, and in California il is y) per cent. The best in
(he world is nt Hahn, LMissin, •.* here
I visited for tlie Standard Oil Compnnv,  that runs S.| per cent,"
The C, 1». ]i. i.s building n branch
line, from nt or near Pincher into the
oil country. We will refine the oil
ue'nr the Wells. There nre some ideveii
companies in the countrv and we will
tudenvor lo have, one rcfiiicrv for the
whole, instead of u scries of siiiiill n-
liiieries. Managing eliemists are hard
to get. There niiiv not lie eleven avail
able in Xmili Aineiicu. Villi u single refinery only one would be needed
and similar ceiiiioiiiii"; would lie
iniide iii oilier wnvs.
