The  Miners'  union  annual sp-irls held here on jibe recreation grouinls on   "Monday     proved a great   success1, i
although the weather was a little oppressive a large crowd was iu attend  ante   and,,   everybody sewned   hapt.\-
and glad  to he there. The long programme,, was followed closely and ...h.'.ost every .event advertised was 'pulled.'

1 heme of pntiiotism which seemed appropriate upon such an occasion...   Mr. Ross spoke,   of tlie importance of
lalor and made.a few remarks of a  scm.tjVpolil-ical nature/iwlroduc'ivgi a lew words of commendation of his fellow, member.*  of  the local house  iheii present.     Mr. Hawthonithwaite was not .in the 'best   ol" form for open air'
speaking owing t<i very strenuous and. constant  'woik upon tlie  plaltoini dur ng the last two weeks, but was
wjitial to the occasion ami shows great improvement  in hiscapacity as a public speaker since his first appcataine

These air blasts are nol in reality
explosions. They are due to the bursting of rock under great pressure, and
the disturUance to the air, of the mine ,
produced by the. shock of disruption,

masses of ground to exist under ■unbalanced-stress, the air blasts art-

As .1'. W, Sperr, professor of mining iu the Michigan college of mines
has pointed out, the bursting force
is due to external' and 'not internal
conditions. Wlieiulhc pressure ' has
become more than0 the pillar oi
lode rock can bear and the moment
of rupture has arrive:*, even the
scratch ol a pick will precipitate a
crash. In mines where the rock will
not stand and thc walls settle' slowly, ,so as to fill the excavations made
}ty sloping there are. no air blasts or
disturbances of that nature. When
large areas of roof, which arc left
hanging,, finally fall, they act like a
piston and force the air out of the
old stopes with all, the violence of a
gas- explosions. ''.
The explosions in the Atlantic'and
Onincy arc due to the same general
cause,   and   that  is  a  general  condi-
'■'Uock by 'mining.' It "Is" reported that
■Most    Canadians    are  aware   that
- we have in this dominion supplies of
coal to express the amount* of 'which
'" or language is inadequate. Knorinous,
tremendous—such words as these only
' feebly express the tonnage of lignite
lying, lieneath the thousands of sjcpiare
miles  in  the  western  provinces.   Un*
s limited 'js perhaps the liest word, for
the supply  is. certainly unlimited 'lor
many hundreds.of years. A hi,lion to
■ the ordinary- person is hardly      more
• than a figure of speech, but the tons
. of coal in Alberta alone are probably represented by hundreds of millions.,
. Though the ■ presence of this. coal
. ■ is well known hud-has been known
for some, time,'the. fact that.it i.s oh-
ly* lignite has *bccn sufficient to induce
most  people to believe   that   it  is  of
- - small economic .value..
An invention- has however, l>een pcr-

equal to  that  produced   in   the   , or-   .
dinary way  by  the,, best  Welsh  coal.
Mr. Howling, of the. geological survey  recently read    Ixiforc  the'Alining
Institute a paper iii whicli he     gave
some remarkable figures.  Tliese si-.o.v
that  in  an ordinary  steam . plant the*

wet"coal, but  if'the  coal  be  dry an'

PARLIAMENT
z\
Dublin,    Ireland,   June  19.'—Michael
■ Davitt's death evoked a wonderful
mieiiifestation of love' and affection
among-alhieliisses   of   people   in   Ire-
i land. Lady Al'.'-rdeeu, the wife of ihe
viceroy, Mr. llryce, "the chief secretary for Ireland and'Sir Anthony Mc
Doimell, the .real acting Irish executive,! were 'among those who mourne-d
for the dead chief and expressed their
highest appreciation of his, charact?r.
Alfiehael Davitt never abated one jot
or iota of his' principles. He ' was
marked and branded as-a felon by
the laws of'England, but his so-called felony was love for the land that
bore him, and that -heroic . love has
made- the name of| Michael Davitt lis
immortal  as the  stars.   In  December,
H103.   Michael  Davitt   wrote   to      Sir
, .1
'fhoniuf' Lipton asking him to use his
' g-ood ollices'with ,King Edward to i-e-
.*ure the release! of Col. Lynch, thu
Irish-Australian, who' fougM with the
Boers. 'As soon 'as the king fead
■Davitt's letter he bade-his ministers
n lease Lynch.
** 'It  seems   io me   that   Ireland   owes
.inure to Davitt than ,.to any man that
hvi'd,  always  excepting  O'Conncll!   I
-nin'   nol  unmindful of  the     semens'-
of Gaviii  Duffy,  nor of the genius  of
Davis,  nor of the'incomparable  Van- ,-

more potent .factor  for  the  regeneration of  Ireland than any of  "■     these

rank' him a' greater benefactor to

riplc of thy Parnell move-incut,     The
;sgeiiiiis ■ and overshadowing- figure     t.f-
Pnniell hid some eif the light    . that
belonged to, Davitt,  but  never  for a
, moment, did Painell himself fail'*   to
n 1 1*
realize that, himself, and the .movement he led owed more to Davitt
than to all others coii-jbined, ''he
two men were essentially different .
.Parnell was broiight up as an aristocrat and his whole training and education , were English rather thi.n Irish. ..Ilut Pm-null did not belong lo
the.Ireland that was the teacher.and
apostle of Europe before tlte Anglo-
Saxon  emerged  from  bnrbarisiji,   Ile,
deemed it a Waste of time to revert
to tliose golden days.-'In a sense he
never understood the inner life of Ireland for he. lacked the Irishman's imagination, and it was an English wo- "
man that blasted his 'career,
Put Davitt was, first and ^>efore all
a child,of thc people, lie was born
in n-Mayo cabin and'when only four "
years old—in the awful famine years
—with father, mother and sister, he
was driven, out of) that cabin, and
saw it  burned   to the'  grouiid. Ly   the
'tyrant    who  wanted.to  graze  cattle

walking, the   streets ;6f- Manchester a   .
few  months   later pegging for   breai    .
and  work among strangers  with  her
two footsore, hungry-children by her
side, and you will  have some  ielea of
the  "via crucis"   through  which  Mi-
ehacl Davitt   reached'■'the   crown      oi
martyrdom. Picture him in the mills
and   factories of   Lancashire,   a. child

hausted,- his right arm, was torn from r
the shoulder.   And,,thus' maimed,   Mi'.',
