The writer takes the miner*'
union and '.lie mine owners as an
example, ou both sides of which he
claims to have bad some experience.
Every man working in ti mine is
not to be a member of (be union at
once, but is first to Ire taken on probation, say for three months. At
tho end of that time, if the man has
shown himself to be a miner he is
to be classified according to his
ability aud paid iu proportion, i. e.,
us we understand the writer's idea,
if the man is an expert miner he
will be given a certificate allowing
him tho highest scale of wages, say
15.00 per day and placed in Class A.
If he is a little less'skitlcd he will
be put in Class B, at $4 00 per day.

diicnl the cost of lighting over
40 per cent. The city is making
an annual profit of S',000, and is
saving for the people, in commercial
lighting, 810X00 per year. This is
a strong argument for a city to own
its own light ns well as water plant,

An undeniable truth has been
published iii Printer's Ink. which
says that the only advertising mediums which guniatitce a safe return to the advertiser are thcduilie*
or bade papers.   The daily paper
is all right and reachre the class of
people who have plenty of leisure,
it has much to be said in its favor;
but if you want to reach the labor
people, it is not in it with (be
weekly. When a lalxir man sits
down i" read after supper ho is too
tired to read a daily pii|>cr through,

they are especially prominent, but

moment, we deem it our duty to Hate
our position to the citiseni ol Britiih
Columbia and their representatives, who
bold anl guide ihe deatiniea of this
Province. Much depends on the (ore-
light end wisdom of these men guldirg
tbe ship of Mute, as we hope they will
continue to do, to a safe port.
Wheraae, we, tho members of Diatrict
Union, No. 6, Western Federation ol
Miners, comprising eleven unions, with
• membershipof three thousand miners,
do hereby protest against any political
trickery that would tend to disrupt the
present government, and we appeal to
all organised labor to remember that
the prosperity of our people depends on
the maintaining of the Metalliferous
Mines A It, *s amended at the last sitting
ol tin, legialeture. II miners are to be
considered in the same category as so
much machinery or some k ind of animal
that livss on black bread and bog lat,
needs no books, can live in a rude log
hut, or sleep in a mining company's
hunk house all bis lile without being
dissatisfied, then there is no cause for
quarrel over bow many hours he shall
or aball not work. Conceding him to be
a human being, a modern man able lo
read, think and appreciate tbe good
things ol lile aa oihen do, then we contend eight hours ire sufficient lor miners
to work underground. Tbe dangerous
and unhealthy nature ol our calliag are
good and sufficient ressona lor shorter
hours than other braucbei ol labor,
skilled or unskilled. Oft time*, by a
■light nin.li.ip or tbe ignorance of an
employee, tbe individual wbo makes
inch mistakes is net only killed, but
causes the deaths ol his comrades wbo
may be near bim. Working iu arliticinl
air, breathing poisonous gases every
■ onisnt when underground, men olten
lose tbeir Uvea before ibey can retrace
tbeir ateps to a place of security. We
are tempted in ibis resolution to question tbe competency ol tbe mine inspector (or tbe Kootenays, and wonder
why a government ihould retain a man
in tbeir employ wbo bn lost tbe respect
and confidence of Ibe men of whose lives
be is tbe guardian. The wage question,
on wbicb ia baaed the present trouble
