Last week oame the startling   news
that all the leading mines and amelters
in West Kootensy were shutting down
throwing thousands  of men  out  of
woik.   The mines shut down  Include
the Le  Roi,   War Kaulo and Center
Star, the  biggest   producers  in  the
province, aud the t*meltcrs had to shut
down  ai  a  consequence.    Ko  very
, definite reason is given but it ia supposed this  is an orgutied attempt ou tbe
part   of   tbe these big corporations to
force the govermetit to repeal theeight-
hour law.   The position   is   certainly
most serious ae affecting the  mining
industry  of  the  Province.   Already
there has been a heavy drop fn mining
stocks and it is feared the worst is uot
yet,   ss a policy of this kind must ab.
soluiely shake the confidence of investors in the mining iudustrv.

he had a quiet, attentive andienoa tha
previous evening at St. Charles, and
camo to Winnipeg exprctlng to address
a simitar orderly gut tiering. Having
paid ihe rent of the ball in advance, he
repaired to the place at a suitably early
hoar, and bad no reason to feel disappointed at the size of the turnout. In
faot tbe lobbies, tne landings, the stair*
way, and the sidewalk and street were
require! to accommodate the crowd.
The hall its If, possibly owing to cer-
tnin rumors of the arrival of a couple
of oases of stale eggs was not opened.
The lecturer was invited ti deliver
himself in the open sir, bnt he declined, no doubt < onstdering the temperature unsuitable. He also declined to
take back the money he had paid for
rent of tbe hall, intimating that he
woold seek some other settlement later
ou. Before many cf the mult Undo had
caught a glimpse of his features he bad
comprehended the situation, and realised the wisdom of the Boer policy of
remaining unseen. There is soma uncertainty as to the course be toik after
descending tbe stairs for some distance.
A supposed Gabriel waa chased
around tbe Market Square, the eggs
were sent on tb ir flying message, and
n procession numbering, it is said, a
thousand men and boys, marched up
and down Main atreet with nil the enthusiasm ot a Traosvaal contingent.
For obvioua reasons, Mr. Gabril oou'd
not be interviewed on the'snbjeotcf his
feelings in thia experience of lhe sort
of freedom of speeoh a- corded in the
Transvaal In times of peaoe.
When he came down tbe staircase of
tbe ball and realized the intentions of
the crowd towards bim be turned white
in the gills. Just then he started to
speak, and somebody, divining who he
was, started to bombard bim with
single shots. Tben the misguided lee-
turer proceeded to make tr cks. Arnund
the corner of King street went Mr. Gabriel, keeping his feet going like a hen
on hot sand, at the same time undergoing a fusilade of the overripe product of tbe same indus'rious creature.
These marks of disapprobation fell all
around bis swiftly retreating form,
brooking with a soft and siokening
sound and filling tt e atmosphere ffith
their nauseous fumes.
Outside Robert Wntts's tables on
King street Mr. Gabriel's horse and
sleigh were awaiting him, and with
ont llncering to make adier she jumped
into the vehicle and drove rapidly
away.

been re eived from Ool. Otter lo command ot the first contingent. Hia report is np to Jau. 1. Thia is the second
report tbat baa been received from Ool.
Otter. A good deal of what is contained in it hu boen received by cable,
such for instance, aa to the necessity oi
sending to Oape Town of a Halifax
man, Pte. Shaw, on account ot 111
health. He also speaks highly of hose
Oanadlans who tcok part in tha Sunny-
side affair.
The most serious part of the report Is
lhat wbioh refers to tbe necessity of
court*martialling thn e of tbe contingent who were lound asleep oa sentry.
Thia Is a serious offence. Two ot tbem
belong to A and one of tbem to B companies.   All three are western men.
A Very Posy **������.
A gentleman whose word cannot bt
doubted and wbo la not easily deceived
tells tbe following:
Very early one morning be saw a foi
eying most wistfully ��� number of wild
ducks feeding in tbe ruaby end af a
highland lake. After awhile the foi,
going to windward of tbe ducks, put
afloat In tbt lakt aeveral bunches of
dead rusbea or grass, wblcb floated
down among the ducks without causing tbe least alarm,
Afier watching tbt effect of bla pit-
llmlnary fleet for a abort time tbt fos,
taking a good slsed mouthful of grass
In bla Jaws, launched himself Into tht
water aa quietly aa possible, having
notblng but tbt tips of bla ears and
nose above water.
In tbtt way be drifted down among
tbe ducks and caught a flnt mallard.
Tbougb tbia story teems extraordinary. It must lit remembered tbat tbt
fos manages to capture wild duoka,
wood pigeons, barer and numberless
othtr animals, sufficient to keep himself and family, nod It u plain to bt
seen that in doing to ht must practlct

THE MARKETS.

Wheat prices tonight show llttl, rbuuge
fiom those ol n wifk ngo, alihoo-ih
they hate fluctuated withm ft rauge of
two cent*, lu Ihe iaierim. The t> ne '
ofthe market latterly has beeu firm
owing to an iniprovenit-iit io Ihe export
demand and renewed complaints of serines damage lo tbe Freui-b crop and resultant bighi r prices iu tha Paris market for wbeat uud flour. Tbe prevailing cold weather in this country, has
alao been u belp owing to tbe fear lhat
it may eiiend to the winter wheat
slates and lujure tbe growing crop.
Opinions ss to Ihe course of prices in
the immediate futnre cm be of little
value as to much depends upon weather and orop developments. Should
the expnrt demand continue good, however, the t-liaiHiea should favor tbe buy.
er, particularly .as all the accident,
peculiar to lho season would tend to

Onu of the features of thn opera
tion of postal savings bunks in
Croat Britain brought out by thu
discussion cf the subject'due to tbe
recent hi} Ing of thu foundation stone
of the grmt edifice in West Konslng-
to". is the elect which \\\o opportunity for saving has ia promoting
thrift among all classes of people.
That has teen, In fact, the most
notable io3Ult. of auch banks in the
United Kingdom, and Ui�� evidence of
it is striking.
According to the statements given
by tho Postmaster Gcnurul, the Duke
of Norfolk, in his address nt the
ceremony, the growth of the institu-
ijnn has boon remarkable. At thu end
nf tho lirst ton years there were 1.-
")UO,OflO depositors, with a balance
of ��19.000,000 to their credit. At
the end of twenty years the llinires
had doubled, nnd now, after thirty-
soveh years, thero were nearly 8,-
000,(00 depositors, with a balance
if n2H.OUO.000. The number of
officii at which deposits could be
made or withdrawn was upwards of
12,000. As nil Illustration of the
Dtrong hold which the institution bad
:,*.i.n.'d upon the population, the Puke
���laid, one out of every five persons
in tho I'nil cd Kingdom la now a depositor, It has been calculated that
ihout four-fifths of the depositors belonged io thu working classes.
riuch u tremendous Incruase of bu-
sonn to Imply u lots of business lo
sincfis done by tbe postal bank would
private bunkers, or to trustee savings banks. There has, however, leen
little nr no.such loss. The Lon-lon
Mull, in commenting on the Btibjdct,
ia.vs! "This increase nf pout office
business nppcnrs to represent, in
largo measures at least, a    real    de-
olopmont of habits of thrilt among
Ihn people, and not a nure transfer
nf accounts from nno agency of deposit to another. Some of the older
U'ustco savingH bunks have buen
clnoed, IL is true, but those which
survive are sounder than they ever
were, and the total amn deposited In
trustee banks exceeds by* several millions tho amount which they held
when tho post office system wns established In lPrfl."
A further evidence that the p( stal
bunks do not seriously cripple or interfere with private bunks Is found
in the fact that in Scotland, whero
thoro are largo facilities given for
popular thrift, thoro is but nno depositor in the postal bank out of
evory fourteen persons lu tho population, while In Enr-lnnd it,id Wt.les,
whore tho faci'l'ips fo* wing
through private banks are loss than
in Scotland, there is one depositor
for overy flvo inhabitants.
Considered from evory point of
view, the postal savinrs banks aji-
near to (ill an actual need of a people. Where thore h an opportunity to
save, habits of thrift will grow;
but where no such opportunities are
provided, there will always lie waste
and want.

A gentleman who le enld to be "well

writes Irom London to The Vancouver
World: "I fear British ColJinbie min
ing hassuffsrel,muoh from the mis-
flhievoua ��ight-IIoitr law. There la a
feeling on this aide, that baa existed
for eome time, that the cost of mining
in Britlah Columbia il exoeseive, and,
in fact, gobbles up too Isrge a proportion of the money invested. I sincerely hope that an effort will lie made
to redeem, to some extent, thia unfavorable feature." It would hardly
be possible to havo a worse impression
get abroad. We shall norer coax cap
Hal into the Province as long as there
is a feeling that the cost of mining le
excessive, and without capital It will
not matter whether the day ie eight

will be nothing to do."       ...  *,.'.
