LABOR NOTES.
The Trades and Labor Council of To- |
ronto, (int., has resolved lo discuss at i
its nest meeting a   proposition   to  have i
delegates show the union label on some
article of clothing al each meeting, notice being given at the previous meeting
what article will be examined. In some
bodies in the United States the plan
has worked well and delinquents are
sometimes simply deprived of their
vote and sometimes simply reported by
letter to their local unions.
The Iron Mulders' National Union
has just voted mi two important propositions, namely, to abolish piece work,
anil to establish the eight-hour day.
The tirst was adopted by a vote of 12,-
l-l'.l to 1042; the sec,ml by 12,807 lo 7%.
Thus the molders have placed themselves in readiness to move forward.
The laboring man who refuses to join
a labor union not only testilies to emptiness of the brain cavity, but also aids to
bring the hunger pains to bis own stomach. Then listen to his growls and
gnashing of teeth when he reaches that
condition.���Pueblo Courier.

ALL-BRITISH CABLE.
Thu British colonies arc demonstrating
tit the world that they will assist, the
mother country in foreign wars, us they
gave proof in 1812 that they would assist in protecting her interests at home.
But to be in a position to immediately
answer u call tor assistance they should
all he connected by that greatest of modern connecting links���the submarine
cable. Tiiis link should be forged on
Hritish territory, und anchored no place
but in its colonial possessions,
Canada has been advocating such n
system for a quarter of a century, li
should touch no foreign territory: and
should be laid in deep instead of shallow water. Without it the unity of tho
Hritish empire is destroyed, and resolved into detached communities, which
arc seperated by vast oceans; und the
military resources of each colony become chained within Its own boundaries,
Tlie fighting of colonial troops side by
side with those from the Hritish Isles
has forged u band of union about them.
Let, that band become un all-British
cubic and the strength anil Unity of the
empire is assured.
"LET THERE BE LIGHT."
The citizens of Nelson are complaining that their city is badly lighted.
I ireenwood citizens have grounds for Ihe
same complaint. At least four more
arc lights should be installed; one at
the Wallace Miller corner, one at the
corner of Silver and Greenwood streets,
one at the corner of Hold aud Washington streets, and one in front of the city
hall. This would entail only a small extra expense to the city and would be sufficient for the present.
EDITORIAL NOTES.
The liberal party in Hritish Columbia must awake from its lethargy or give
over the province to the conservatives
without a struggle. The liberal organs
are crying out against. Joe Martin, raging at his inconsistencies and deploring
his obstinancy. Instead of this puerile
howling, why do they not look for a
strong man to take hold of the reins and
lead the party to victory? If Martin is
not tlie man let them choose some one
else. The conservatives are using the
anti-Martin cry to raise themselves to
power. The liberals should not permit
this, but should unite, choose their
strongest man, and by a general and
complete organization make a tight, for
tiie rein's of power. Tlie conservatives
have thrown down the gauntlet of party
lines; we do not believe the challenge
will go untaken. Let every constituency appoinst its ten delegates, and this
representative delegation from the province can choose their leader al the convention an April 5th; then let them
abide by the   choice of   the   convention,
showing their cooperation by making
such choice unanimous. ���
One month has passed by since Joe
Martin was given the task of forming a j
government in the province, and yet he j
has found only three men to accept positions in  his cabinet.    It is high time j
that the ministry was completed, or this I j
oligarchy dismissed.    Such a  protract-:'
ed political crisis will revert   with  dam-
aging effect upon the business industries
of the province, aud we in tlie Boundary
country will feel it  most  keenly,  as   we
have   nol   yet   reached   the  producing
stage, everything thus far  being pros-j
pective.     Shall   the   liberals   swallow!
Martin or assist in dethroning him?   It
is time to decide.
Tlie Nelson Tribune's  pressman,  Mc-j
('anna, who wus  in   (Ireenwood  setting
up the Times press, has been a surprise 1
to   his  acquaintances  here.     He was (
looked upon as a fairly sober man for  a
pressman, but he lias "seen visions and
dreamed dreams" of late, and has conjured up the  idea that  somewhere in
(Ireenwood he saw   a  yellow   flag,    Mc-
Canna'was either drunk or color-blind.
There has never been a case of smallpox
in (ireenwood.
Prof. David Starr Jordan of the Lc-
liind Stanford, Jr, university fondly
imagines that the downfall of (Ireat
Britain is at hand Jordon had better
take another trip this season to witness
the Passion Play at Oberonignu and he
will become imbued with the Idea that
the world is coming to an end lit the
close of the Paris exposition. There is
about as much reason for one as for the
ol her.
The proposition made by the Anaconda committee to Greenwood City re
terms on which their townsite should he
taken within the limits of the city, are
very reasonable; and il would bo well if!
the council would take some action and
present ihe proposals to Greenwood
property owners for their decision.
The smallpox scare is about over, and
the time bus come for a relaxation of
the quarantine regulations. Mining
men are wailing patiently to get into i
the country, and if they are kept out
longer they will take their capital to
some other mining section, and we want j
it here.
(Ireenwood streets are beginning to
take on a respectable appearance. The
front and buck yards have, to some extent, undergone renovating. The next
duty for the officials is to sec that brick |
chimneys are erected wherever a stove- j
pipe is sticking through the roof
There is talk of Hewitt Bostock being
offered the governorship of this province .
in ease of the dismissal of Governor Mc-
Innes. We have no doubt of Mr. Bos-
tock's ability to lill the position, but we
would be sorry to lose him as our repre-
sentutive for this district at Ottawa.

At a time of crisis in foreign affairs,
tbe Princess Mary Adelaide, Duchess of
Teck, was seated at a dinner next to
Disraeli. She was anxious to understand the apparant inaction of tlie government, and asked him suddenly,
"What are we waiting for?" lie took
up the menu, glanced at it, und gravely
replied:   " Mutton and potates, ma'am."

In the Plymouth congregation, during
Henry Ward Beecher's pastorate, there
was at one time a woman who had a
harsh voice and a stiff manner of speaking, and her long-drawn-out, dull discourses wearied the congregation. At
last Mr. Beecher, too, reached the limit
of endurance, and one evening, when
she sat down, after talking nearly half
an hour, he arose, and in his deep tones
said: "Nevertheless, I still believe in
women   speaking   in    meeting."     She
spoke no more.

It is related of President Kruger that
when Jews first began to Hock to Pretoria lie was unfavorably disposed to
ward them and used them severely, but
after a time relented somewhat, and li
ually ({ave them leave to build a synagogue. They were grateful, and when
the synagogue* and was built, they asked
him to come and open it. The story is
���and it assumes to be a true story���
that the old man accepted the invitation
and, standing on the platform, duly
said:    "In the name of the Father, and
the Son, and of the Holy Ghost, I declare this'(synagogue opened, Now, my
friends, I hope you will lose no time in
becoming converted."

The late Archbishop of York (Dr.
Magee) made an eloquent speech in the
house of lords in opposition to Gladstone's bill for the disestablishment of
the Irish church. Incidentally he said
that he "could not regard it as consistent with the salvation of his immortal
soul to vote for the bill." A moment
later one peer who was coming into the.
bouse inquired of another who was
going out: " Who is ou his feet now?"
The outgoing peer, who stammered, replied: "Archbishop M-M-Magee is
t t-talking against the d-d-d-disestab-
lishment of the Irish church." "What
does lie say?" "He says he'll bed-d-d���d
if he votes for the bill."

Frederick D. Kilbnrn, state superintendent of banking in New York, made
a campaign speech for Governor   Koose-
velt last fall that was a record breaker.
Killburn and other spellbinders were
touring the extreme norther part of the
state. Early one morning tlie engine
stopped for water near a lumber camp.
Kilbum got out on the end of the platform ear and delivered a rip roaring
speecli on the evils of Tammany Hall
and kindred campaign topics. The lumbermen listened with no show of enthusiasm. A trifle nettled, Killburn returned to the ear. A brakemai. noticing his gloom, said, cheerfully: "Don't
mind those French-Canadians; they're
a wooden-headed lot." "French-Canadians!" said Kilbum, with suprise. I
"Where are we?" "We're just over the
line in Canada," replied the brakeinan.

The editor of a small provincial paper
in Austria was in great difficulty to find
a lit subject for Ids leading article, .having been too intent upon other business
or upon pleasure to provide one. The
last moment had come, and the editor
was in despair. He tortured his brain
in vain, when he suddenly was inspired
by a happy thought and dashed off tbe
lines:
"After carefully perusing tlie leading
article written for the present number
by one of the ablest of our contributors,
we have arrived at the conclusion that
it may be misinterpreted by the authorities and regarded ai an attack upon the
government, We ourselves consider it
to be perfectly innocent; but as we are
unvilling for our readers' sakes as well
as our own to have our paperconftscated,
we have very unwillingly, though, as we
think, prudently, resolved to withdraw
the article. This must serve as the
apology to our readers for tlie blank
space in our present issue "
The journal was published in tlie evening, and the sly editor, after performing this little bit of stratagem, left the
ollice in high humor, As soon as he arrived in the ollice on the next morning
a clerk came up to him with a doleful
expression and said : "llerr Redaktor,
the paper is confiscated by the police!"
"For what reason?" asketl the astonished editor. "For malicious ridicule of
the institutions of the   Austrian  empire
by the omission of the leading article,"
replied tbe man.

France with n population of 88,618,000
has a peace strength of 670,000; war

they would be untrained.
Germany, with a population ol 62,270,-

a war Strength of 8,118,000, Besides
this there is the landstrum, or defensive

Press Opinions ot Laurier.
All the London morning papers referred
in most flattering terms to the speech oi
Sir Wilfred Laurier, tlie Canadian premier, welcoming the idea of colonial
representation in London. The Times
said:
"The speech would rank high in any
assembly as a model of noble eloquence,
but is not its eloquence which wdll make
it live in the annals of the empire. He
lias expressetl more faithfully and more
truly than any other statesmen who has
yet. spoken, the temper of the new imperial patriotism, fostered into self-consciousness by the war. We look forward to a day, not distant in the life of
nations, when a Hour' premier of a
South African dominion shall kindle
with a like devotion to the British Hag."
The Daily Chronicle said: "Canada
is perhaps tlie colony of all others which
will act as the pioneer of imperial federation, if ever tlie empire should he federated."
The Daily Mail said: '/Why should
not Sir Wilfred Laurier ami the great
leaders of our other colonies have a
share in the direction of imperial affairs?"
The Standard said: ''The war has
shown that the colonies have won the
strongest claims to gaining privileges
in tho empire by volunteering to assume its burdens."
The morning post saitl: "Sir Wilfred
Laurier spoke for Canada in words of
impassioned and splendid eloquence.''
The Daily Graphic said: "The sooner the ideal of federation is realized, the
better."
Indian Finances.
The India ollice lias issued its
annual financial statement, says a London dispatch of the 21st. This shows a
surplus for 1899-1900 of ��2,553,000, and
an estimated surplus for 1D00-18U1 of
��160,000.
The famine expenditure for 1899-1900
worked out at ��1,5(10,000. It is estimated that the famine expenditure for
1900-1901 will be��8,385,OO0.
Except for the famine expenditure,
the budget is regarded as healthy. The
gold standard has been successfully introduced and a" demands have heeu
met without borrowing. Tlie surplus of
��160,000 is, however, only a paper surplus ; for a temporary loan of ��5011,000 is
to he Incurred in Englund and it is estimated that a temporary loan of three
erores of rupees will be necessary (or

France In Trouble.
[t is said that the government of Morocco has vigorously protested against
the recent trench occupation of the
Oasis of itisahih, which, il is claimed un
behalf of Morocco, is an encroachment
upon the territory of the country. The
two governments.have been in negotiation on the subject, and Prance has decided to send a special plenipotentiary
to Tangiers with the object of arranging
the matter. According to the Patrie,
the situation bus become so grave that
the government resolved that M. Revoil
should start immediately on hoard the
cruiser Dn Chayla, of 8,952 tons, which
will remain at TaDgieTs in order to protect French citizens. Further serious
news received on the 20th inst., decided
the French government to dispatch to
Tangiers a second cruiser, the Latuch-
Trevill, which, on tlie 22nd. was ordered
to sail for Tangier's.
much gratified over the fact that Germany recently dispatched an expeditionary force from Kiao Chou to Ichou Fu
for the protection of American missionaries. This force suppressed the rioters
at Ichou Fu, arrested tlie ringleaders,
who have been punished, and taught
the anti-foreign crusaders a salutary lesson.

THE   GREENWOOD  MINER'
EARTHQUAKE GROUP
These Mines Join the Golden
Eagle.
Description of One of the Big Proper-
erties in Brown's Camp. Written by
the Miner's Special Correspondent.
CitA.vn Forks, March 2K, 1900.
In a recent, trip tip the North Fork of
the Kettle river your correspondent was
greatly impressed with the magnificent
outlook for the properties of tlie Earthquake Consolidated Gold Mining company in Brown's camp, us a result of the
development work carried out during
^,',Vc past eleven months. The group ill-
\_.\xles tbe Earthquake, Phil Sheridan
anil Last Chance locations, lying on the
southern slope of Vulcanic mountain,
and extending across Volcanic creek
Into tlie gulch below, These locations
adjoin the (iolden Eagle, at the 180-foot
level of which one of the ledges is four
feet wide, and gives average values of
$80 per ton. The lead referred to runs
through the Earthquake group for al
least 2,000 feet, having been opened up
bv surface cuts nnd test pits for about
700 feet. Halfttiiiileenstei'ly arethe Volcanic and Iron Cap properties owned by
It  A. Brown.   These two claims have
the greatest showing of mineral of any
claims- in southern Itriiish Columbia,
being simply   n   mountain   of  mineral
,m '.Kill to 1,500 feet in width and about
.01)0 feel in length. The Earthquake
group contains several contacts of porphyry and diorite. with a heavy belt of
granite lying to the north, The diorite
constitutes the country formation, and
through it runs porphyry dykes. The
ledges, or ore bodies, for the most part
run northwesteily and southeasterly,
nnd generally occur in the diorile at or
near its contact with tlie dykes referred
lo. The values appear to be chiefly
gold, but much of tbe vein matter carries considerabk pper,
The Earthquake claims were located
in tSilli by W. K. White, a well known
pmspeclor, who did sullicienl work to
indicate the size and contiguity of several ledges. Systematic development wbh
not inaugurated until last spring, when
the claims were acquired by Frank
Sears of Grand Forks. Mr. Sears or-
L'iini/.ed a company with a capital nl
|150,000, divided into 1,500,000 shares oi
the par value of ten cents each. The
treasury stock was largely subscribed
for in this city. The officers are, president, Chas. A. Powell; secretary, Frank
Sears; treasurer, .1. W. McLaughlin,
local manager of the Eastern Town
ship's Bank. The principal eastern
shareholders are, Win. Farwell, general
manager of the same hunk, Sherbrooke,
line.; S. II. 0. Miner, of the Graves-
Miner syndicate; ,1. N. Galer, Waterloo,
Que.; II. N. Galer, of tbe (iranby smelter, and W. II. Robinson, a banker of
I iranby, Que. Mr. Sears, who bad an
extensive mining experience in Nevada
and Idaho, is the managing director.
The principal mineral belts consist of
two series of veins about 700 feet, apart.
While one on the Earthquake intersects
JB>"' diorite in a northeasterly, direction,
^^he other, on the Phil Sheridan, has a
more easterly course, suggesting the belief that at. a point near the centre of the
"roup tlie two sets of veins will intersect
each other.
The Earthquake veins have been exposed by means of open cuts and test
pits, sufficiently close to prove four par
allel veins within a space of 100 feet.
Where these veins are exposed they
show a constant width of from 111 inches
to four feet, with nearly a solid pay-
streak iu each, with from eight to thirty
inches of a solid iron pyrites in a quartz
gangue. The Phil Sheridan veinB have
hern traced by means of open cuts eastward from the (Iolden Shaft. The outcrops on the Earthquake are all found
on the summit and face of a���hill, and
the deposits are, therefore, readily gotten
at by means of horizontal workings from
the base or side of the height. The nre
can be sent by gravitation, or aerial
tramway to a railway silling, which has
been surveyed, and which is 3,000 feet
from the group. The main line of the
C. P. R. is two miles distant, A wagon
road extends to (irand Forks, 10 miles
away, and it is the intention of Ihe company to make several experimental
shipments t.. the (iranby smelter in the
near future.
Canada's Tobacco Industry.
.1. A. Auld, M. I'. P. lor Si,nth Essex,
speaks in glowing terms of ihe tobacco
industry of that country. He says that
twenty-five factories in Canada are
handling Canadian grown tobacco,
which means that Ifin00,000, which formerly went to the United Slates, now
finds its way into the pockets of Canadian farmers.

MINING    PROGRESS
Extensive Development Work
in Franklin Camp.
The City of Paris in Central Camp is
Maintaining a Steady Output���Sale
of the Maple Leaf.
Reports from Franklin, the new camp
on the east fork of the North fork, (10
miles from Granil Forks, are to the effect that a great deal of development
work has heen done during the winter
months. On the Banner, a rich gold-
copper claim, bonded last fall hy Henry
White, the locator of the Knob Hill and
Old Ironsides, a tunnel lias heen driven
150 feet to catch the lead. The work is
still in progress. Tlie assay values obtained from Franklin camp are tlie highest ever obtained in this district, A big
inliux is expected there in the spring.
Ore is being hauled in wagons from
the City of Paris group in Central camp
to the Granby smelter at Grand Forks.
The management is now prepared to
maintain a daily output of 100 tons,' but
tennis are not at present available for
hauling more than 50 tons per diem.
The Norfolk, in the same camp, is still
at work tiding steady prospecting underground witli encouraging results.
A proposal has beeen made by Hon.
G. K. Foster to the Uathniulleii coniptt-
,ny to sell the Maple Leaf claim in .Summit camp to a subsidiary company for
development. This will he acted on al
a meeting on April Ho. Tlie Rathmullen would then develop its Hen llur
claim in tlie same district.
1 The Athabasca returns for last month
were: Length of run, 27 days, L4hours.
���Value of bullion recovered, $9,6-j4.59;
gross value of concentrates recovered,
41,707 50, Total values recovered $11,-
312.09. Number of tons crushed, 347.
Total values recovered per Ion of ore
Crushed, $32,60.
Dan McPhail, who has extensive
milling interests on .Myers Creek and
the Similkameen has returned from an
extended trip to Toronto, Montreal and
other eastern cities. He will begin development work at once on his .Myers
Creek properties.
At the Northport smelter blast furnaces Nos, 1 and 2 are running steadily,
but the crusher is closed. No ore is
Coming in now, but theru is plenty on
hand to run the smelter fur 00 days al
least, and it is nearly certain that shipments will be resumed hy that time.
Tlie Le Roi company litis let a contract
for a new 700 horse power hoist for their
main working shaft. Fraser & Chalmers, Chicago and London are lite successful bidders.
A good vein of shipping ore has been
struck quite hy accident iu tlie shaft of
the Nickle Plain at Kossland, one of the
11. A. C. properties, placing it on the list
Of prospective shippers.
Tlie Gooderham-Blackstook syndicate
of Toronto is now negotiating .for the
flail Mines smelter, anil if successful
will turn it into a straight customs
srnelter.
Ii. Pierson, an old time prospector of
the Similkameen country, was in town
to-day and related an interesting story
Of the richness of the Nickle Plate mine
in the Keremeos district, This property, which was purchased eight or nine
months ago by Marcus Daly, the Montana copper king, has been steadily
worked ever since. He described it as
one of the biggest propositions in Hritish Columbia, The paystreak will run
over $80 in gohl und copper, antl is from
three to six feet, in width, the ore being
of such a nature that the gold can be
extracted to a certain extent by the
simple process of panning. The main
ore body, however, is a smelting proposition, and there is on each aide of the
paystreak about 10 feet of mineral carrying values of $18, which will be
enough for porfitahle reduction with
transportation facilities, and cheap
treatment.���Ex.
A circular has been issued by the Republic company stating that a dlvidond
of 3 per cent, will be paid on July 15.
The mill site is prepared and all tlie
machinery ordered, The greater part of
it is on the way in to the property antl it.
is anticipated that it will he in operation
hy .Inly I. A large modern plant is to
he installed on tlie Quilp, in which the
Republic company is interested, and it
is expected thai regular shipments will
commence before the end of the summer. The new Republic mill will he
owned by a separate company, the Republic Exploration jiml Cyanide company, the majority of the stock of which
will he owned hy the Republic company.
At 47 feet, from the shaft on tne 250
foot level the Black Bear people have
struck their No. 2 vein, at Loomis.
They had three and one-half feet of
quart!!, and were not across' the vein.
It is a singular coincidence that at, exactly on the 250-foot level, veins Nos. 1
and 2 have been cut. The cutting of
those two veins puis tlie Black Pear into 150 feet of ore on each vein over the
level, upon which they can drift ut. least
500 feet west, antl 1000 feet east, while
there is 1200 feet below them to the level
of the Palmer mountain tunnel, where
the same vein will be cut in the adjoining claim, which is owned by the big
tunnel company.
The Western Miner and Financier
states the Freeport ami Cripple Creek
Company a wildcat.   Claims have been
made in the eastern press in   regard  to |
these properties that, were not borne out
by  facts.    Their  mine (?)  consisted  of!
some worthless rpospoct holes iu a  com-.
paratively barren section of the Cripple
Creek district from which they have  re- '
moved what machinery they had, nnd i
abandoned tho location.   They claimed
to he shipping and paying dividends,
Robertson A Shields are reported in
have taken a working bond on the!
Chloride and Tapioca claims, in Summit
camp, owned by Higgins and Pulton,
well known to all the prospectors of this
section. The amount of the bond is not
made public, hut if is understood that
a small payment was made and that :t
force of men will be. put. to work on the j
properties immediately.���(Irand Forks

There having heen rumors atloat that
the Miner-Graves syndicate bad been
offered a large sum for several of their
mines in ihe Boundary district, the
president, S. H. Miner, was asked if the
report was true. Mr. Miner admitted
tlie truth of the story, hill added that it
needed a little explanation.
"lla.e vou any objection to making :i
statement that can be published?"
"None whatever," he siiid. "Some
time before the end of the year we here
made a cash offer of $8,500,000 for' the
Knob Hill und Oltl Ironsides mines."
"And you refused?"
"We refused that sum when our development did not begin to compare
with the resells obtained today, and in
j order to set the mutter at rest, I may as
| well tell you lirst as Inst, that If you
! were to offer us If:") 000,000 for the Knob

POLITICAL POINTERS.
At a meeting of the executive of the
(Iolden liberal association held there.
last Friday evening, and which was
well attended, a resolution waa proposed
and carried unanimously in favor of
strict party lines iu tne conduct of the
affairs of this province. Hon. Joseph
Martin and his policy :is published in
the Vancouver World was discussed at
some length aud endorsed by a standing vote. Another general meeting of
the association was called for Saturday
evening for tlie transaction of business,
amongst other matters being the selection of delegates to attend the provincial liberal convention to be held in
Vancouver on Tuesday, April 5th.
North East Kootenay will send a fu
delegation to that meeting.   Martiuism
(is at a premium in this section of the
Brovince.
That there is selling in a wave of pop-
libit opinion in favor of Hon. Joseph
Martin and the principles he champions,
cannot be questioned, SII.VS the Vancouver World. Measures, not men, should
be the motive of every progressive man
in Brilish Columbia, Mr. Martin's
platform is not. only a progressive one,
but it is likewise an enlightened one
and up-to-date It is framed iu the interest of all people, all being treated
alike. Such being the case he will draw
support from all classes.
Mr. K. L. Carter-Cotton has thrown
downthe gage to the conservative party ;
he possesses one of his own. After the
elections be .will have time to write columns upon the text which includes the
words that a man's sins will Iind him
nut. lie is utterly discredited here and
has no more chance of being returned
than a crow has of learning Sanscrit.���
Vancouver World.
Mr. 0. II. Mackintosh, of Rossland,
the well known ex-conservative M. P.
and stalwart member of that dominion
party, has distinctly declared against
ihe adoption of party lilies in the present provincial crisis, which for the sake
of the industrial prosperity of Hritish
Columbia calls for the united action of
solitl   men  ol  both   parties.���News Ad

Good Advice.
Every now and then some medicine
quack or vendor of notions is on the
street hawking goods at public sale.
The city it is true gets a dollar or two
for letting them work the people, but
does it pay? The nostrums are generally of little or no value, and the people
who buy are deceived ; and the notion
salesman works off a lot of truck at
.good prices to the detriment of the buyer and legitimate business men. Raise
the license on fakirs.���Independence
