To charge the War Eagle up with
gambling losses on the stock exchange is about ns foolish as to
hold the eight-hour law responsible
for tho exhaustion of its ore reserves. Yet there are people foolish
enough to do both.—Nelson Tribune.
Proceediugs have been instituted
as promised against C. Wentworth
Sarel, editor of the Kamloopn
standard, and George 8. Wj||ja.ns,
its reputed Victoria correspondent,
in the matter of lampooning the
lieutenant-governor. Williams is
cited for defamatory libel, to appear
in the police court, st Nelson, on
Friday. Sand's blue bill is said to
be more drastic, being elaborated
in the fashion of high treason.
The Record si ill Finds Much to Hay
>gainst the Eight Hour Law.
The Ret'o d bad another relapse
Thursday, rambling a-ptiu on tho
ground it has hitherto trod, in the
•sum insane, unressonab'e manner,
crying out against the eight hour
law and complaining of the need of
from thirty to forty men leaving
town every day, seeking work elsewhere, nud at "less pay," as though
the entire population of Rosslaud
was leaving town, whereas, the
truth of the matter is, there are
still quite a number ol men left in
the camp; in fact, fully sa many as
would find employment under the
eld ten-hour system. The present
layoff of men would have occurred
iu Kossland whether the hours of
work had been ten, or even twelve,
anil the Record knows Ibis. If.
therefore, there had been two shifts
instead of throe, the percentage of
men turned down would have been
proportionately larger. For example: Under the eight-hour system three men find work where
two f.irmerly were employed. Now,
admitting that one-lhird of the
whole force employed are laid off,
which is placing it large, as many
are still at work here as would
have woik  under tlio old   system
if tbe inil.ru Well, ITIllllillo, full
luiiiil.'l. If therefore ibe mines,
which would be idle new any way,
had been i mining under the ten-
hour system, nno half m'tliui force
would be out now, nnd tlu.ro might
be a r.asonable reason togruiublo
about hard times. Working this
out with tho whole district, instead
of Kooslaud as a basis, what would
be Ce differe. ce iu the number
of men employed and the pio-
porlionately decrca.-ed income iu
tbe Proviuci?
Of course the Record hits no intention of making falsa assertion*,
nor does il purposely insist on being
bull-headed. Its only i s way, and
it really can't help it. But after
light on the subject is given it,
there is hardly excuse for it to continue to grope iu the dark and insist on false statements. How much
wiser litis paper's writer must bo
than the men who drew up the
miners' petition to the government,
for these miners didn't kuow they
were threatening a strike, which,
of course, is an admission of extreme Ignorance.
We fully discussed the contract
system and its evils some time ago
It is a well-known fact that iu those
districts where the contract system
has prevailed for .muhb time, barely
starvation wages are now to be
earned. The contractor is compelled to make a reduction in his
price each time a new contract is
drawn up, otherwise either someone else, poor.-i than himinlf, will
underbid him, or the employer will
demand cheaper work This has
been tried and iuvariably resulted
disastrously to (ho woik man.
'I hero may be an exception to this
rule in the seemingly profitable contract that exists between the owners
snd managers of the Record, but
wait till it is renewed. Experience
is a hard school, but a certain cla-s
will learn in no othei; therefore,
live and learn.
When the machinery is installed
and things aro set going iu full
swing, as we have every reason to
believe they will lie, that i-uintes-

Hon. J. Martin, Tuesday, moved
bis resolution on Ihe importance of
redistribution. He denied that it
implied went of confidence, and
said hia only object was to press ths
sol.ject. He offered tosupoort aery
measure acceptable to tho msjoriS/
of tbe house. Kellie, without comment, moved the adjourntusst of
the debate, and Martin depouncskl
this action ss cowardly, pointing
out that his motion would be practical ly shelved by going to the foot
of the ..r.ler paper. He continued:
"A redistribution bill is not daogar-
ous to the country, but is dangerous
lo members of a government who

without the support of either the
country or the house."
Kellie disclaimed having been
prompted by the government, and
on Henderson's promise that sa
opportunity for ali.cura.ion would be
given, Martin consented to adjoura.
Ou Wednesday, which was private
members' dav, Martin's redistribution bill wss fully discussed, snd
waa the theme of many speeches.
The government practically admitted its inability to defeat Mr.
Martin's latest censure motion because of Premier Semlin introduclog
an amendment to the effect thai
redistribution is admitted and Ihst
a bill be presented shortly.
A new "went of confidence" bill
wss presented by Mr. Higgins for
Frii'ay, baeed on the withdrawal of
the government, from the return of
a letter announcing the intention
to bring iu legislation, this seeien,
in respect to the eight-hour bill.
The government insisted on night
session, notwithstanding the opposition by the gallery but upon reassembling they found the galleries
empty and voted to adjourn.
Thursday was the day of a warm
time lo th* legislature because of
the personality talk between Messrs.
Martin and Cotton. The house was
crow.!.-,!, nud Martin took up nearly
Ibe eutire afternoon in hia speech
against Mr. Cotton, dually making
a motion to enquire into tbe gen*
demon's career. Following Mr.
Martin. Mr. Cotton explained bis
Colorado career, the first time |hs
has ever entered into an explanation of the matter in this Province.    .
Contrary to expectation Martin's
motion was not made a party
question, and tbe minister of finance
bail the satisfaction of seeing tbe
resolution defeated hy a vote of
21 to 7. The defeat seemed to
meet tbe spprovsl of the majority of
the spectators as well as those who
have taken any interest in the
matter, and th. general verdict is
that tho house of representatives is
hardly tbe place to enter into personalities, though it seems to ever
be the chief occupation of tho honorable gentleman who instituted
thi. enquiry. THE   INDUSTRIAL   WORLD,
