in bed at thc St. CharleB hotel  Tuesday
morning by a chambermaid.   His death
| was very sudden and entirely unexpected, as he had not complained nl being ill
and had retired  the   night   previous at
| about lo o'clock the same as usual.
i    The evening previous Hall had  taken
[ a walk about thc cily,  after  which he
returned to tbe St. Chailes hotel.   Ho
■ played a game or two of cards with some
companions, drank a glass of beer, after
which he bade all goodnight and went
to bed.   Another boarder  whose  room
was next lo the deceasid, r-tired at thc
same time, and noticed nothing wrong.
Loud snoring was heard during the night
from the mom occupied by the decease I,
but other than this no sound out  of tbe
ordinary wat noticeable.
An inquest was held over the remains
Wednesday and autopsy performed by
I Dra. Kenning sml Senior. Thc organs
i uf tbe body were found in a normal condition, showing no cauac for death. The
inquest was adjourned until April io to

The meeting ol the Miners union Wednesday evening was ol a moBt enthusiastic nature. A large amount ol important boabietl was transacted,and several
candidates for initiation were added to
the membership roll.
The most important item o( interest
was lhe report of the auditing committee.
This report contained much of interest
to the membership in general, snd proves
beyond doubt that Kossland union
is in a very nourishing condition.
The report gives lhe lotal receipts lor
the paat six months at ^6837.15. 01
thip amount $51150.15 was for dues. The
total expense was (5:7^88 of which
I •ir.- 81 was (or ihu relief and
care of (he sick members Thc
balance, S1554.2~, is certainly a very
(Uttering one. During lhe term
311 new nmnrs were added to thc membership roll through initiation ami otherwise.

financially, and bids fair to continue to.
The affairs of the union are in sale

did you consent to labor for
the enrichment of him who
did no labor, while you who
created the riches are living
in poverty? For clearing,
fencing and cultivating the
fields, for building houses, cisterns and barns, and all other
labor you have performed, did
he not pay for it all out of the
very money that vou, by your
toil and sweat, have produced?
Why will you, and your wives,
your sons and your daughters
yield yourselves servants to
him who is but your equal? It
is indeed a strange delusion
that prompts men to reverence those who rob and oppress them. What right has
he to this opulence and power
over his brethren? Why
should he fare sumptuously
every day while ye, who have
created all that he hath, are
strangers and aliens to the
comforts of life? Let me earnestly admonish you to no
longer be slaves. Let each
and every one of us swear,
tnat by the dawn of another
day we will be a free people
and in possession of all that
is rightfully ours." And while
he was speaking some shouted: "We will fall upon him
and take his life," while others
said: "We will dispossess
him and turn him out a beggar." But the young man
cried the more, saying: "O,
foolish men, ye are beside
yourselves and know not what
you say. Be quiet, and let us
not do him any bodily harm,
nor dispossess him and leave
him and his family destitute."
Then a number of those who
were conservative, said: "We
will buy him out, giving our
notes, for wc can soon pay out
from the profits, and in this
way we can avoid   doing any
A'ter relating to him all the
words which the young man
had spoken unto them, he
said: "I pray thee have compassion on me and do no injury to my person. Howbeit,
I freely confess to you, my
brethren, that in all things I
have dealt unjustly with you.
But if you will spare my life
and that of my household I
swear that henceforth I will
in no wise mistreat or oppress
you." Then, in a fit of consternation he attempted to
take his own life.but they prevented him, saying: "Be this
far from thee and fear not,
for we are thy friends and will
do no violence to person or
property. We propose to
make of these vast possessions
a common inheritance for all.
We propose to have an economic equality hereafter, instead of the despotism of the
past. There shall be an equal
distribution of labor and of
wealth. No man shall serve
another, but each shall serve
all for the common good."
And he, being glad to escape with his life, consented
to all which they had proposed. And the heart and soul
of this people became one,and
no man counted anything his
own, because they had all
things in common. Great favor was upon them, and no
one had need ot anything, for
there was plenty for all. And
so, they abode there together,
a prosperous and happy people forever.

mockery it i.s! Andrew Carnegie donating to public institutions throughout the
country money that should
put bread into lhe mouths of
his workmen; money that he
does not earn, never could
possibly earn; posing as a
philantrophist while he grinds
those who earn the money
down to a mere existence.
How much more philantro-
phic would it be if Mr. Carnegie would let his charity begin at home? Why not, if he
is charitably disposed, grant a
raise of wages to his employes
in proportion to the amount
he donates annually to public institutions and for which
he is lauded to the extent of
a column or two in mono|>o-
listic papers throughout the
states? If there is aught of
charity in the keeping from a
poor man that which would
add comforts to his life and
that of his family, and giving
it to some institution from
which that man, from lack of
time and oft times inclination
brought on by such thoughts

Labor is claiming its own.
In Great Britianan eight hour
mining law has passed its second reading. The state legislature of Oregon has just
passed an eight hour law for
miners, mill men ami all
classes of labor relating to
mining. In the state of
Montana the long struggle
has been won and an eight
hour law for miners now
graces the statute books of
the copper state. In Colorado
the labor members have control of the legislature and an
eight hour law will find its
pl.i.'t among the statutes of
that state within thirty days.
Even the old Keystone state
of Pennsylvania the agitation
is being felt, and the coal
miners who struck against
starvation wages last fall may
soon be enjoying an eight
hour shift. In Ontario also
an eight hour mining law is
talked of.— Paystreak.
By the enactment <>f a compulsory arbitration act, the
loss to employer and employe
through strikes and lockouts
would be practically nil.
Whenever trouble ordisagree-
nient might arise, work could,
and in all probability would.

for grievance was being arbitrated. Not only would this
be to the benefit of the employer ami employe, but think
of the good Inisiness men
would derive from such an
assurance. The constant fear
..f a business man in a mining
1 amp is labor trouble. Willi
this fear eradicated, a city or
town would assume much
more stability, there would be
a much freer circulation of
earnings, ami a healthy condition would pre\ ail generally.
These are things thai should
I..- thought of.   The passing
of such an act, is one in which
all are concerned and which
all should end.-av.ir to secure.
What a noble nature this
I man Carnegie has! He gives
a pension to those in his employ who have reached the
age when nature demands a
rest. Ami ilu--- same men

money for Mr. Carnegie Ii

been permitted to enjoy the
fruits of their labor. But
when they grow old they are

Mi-. Editor:
My attention has heen drawn to au
article in Ihe INDUSTRIAL Wnitiai regarding thc movement to ask the council for introducing a bylaw closing all
plates of business at 6:30 p. 111., thus
making early closing compulsory. I
would like to say a (ew words through
your paper on thw subject. Abutit three
years ago an agreement was signed by
all the prominent merclisnts of ll.n
city to close their stores at 7 o'clock.
This agreement was not adhered to Irom
the stsrt ami at lead two of our largest
dealers, while removing goods lion, the
doors, still continued to do business until such lime us their customers were
served. Now the reason these two
merchants did not close their places of
1 ni-1 in*. * was I pi-esume, because they
found it impossible to do justice to the
public and close their doors in the faces
of working men who could not get round
before that I. ur tu do tlnir buying.
We speak ol the working men, mechanic, i-tc.wI.n do not leave their work un-!
til 6 p. in Hy the time they go lo their
homes and wash, change tbeir clothing
and have tbeir supper, It is next to im-
possible for them 10 get down to the
store before 7 o'clock.
Now I think thai business houses eiist
for something more than the prolit and
convenience o( the proprietors. They
are .. necessity in any community, and
ss such should study the interests an.l
convenience of the different classes of
the community from which they derive
their patronage for instance, the dry
goods and hardware stores do little or
no business after5 p. m., nnd I have no
doubt could close at that hour without
inconveniencing their patrons to
any extent. On tbe other hand
tin* earlier < losing of mens'furnishings and shoe sloiei, Iruit stores, etc.,
would result in a very large cluss of lln*
comiiiunii vjlK-mg greatly Inconvenienced
and would |ustl(y the remark made by a
working mail lo the writer u|s.n his being loo late to get some nrcesiary ar'i-
cle which he rt .piirrd before could go to
his work the following miming. He
Mul. "\ in merchant! do not consider
anyone but your own pleasure in Ihc
mailer ol closing up your store, yet you
make a howl when wc send lo Toronto
and other places for our goods,'' and
bis rebuke was merited. Now any bylaw
«hi. h would indlx-iim.nstely close np
all kinds of business al thc bour suggested would he tnsnilcstly ..tl.itr.ir*.
and unfair, and would result in a still
greater proportion of tbe business
which legitimately belongs to us, going
to I ..-1. in cities. I would like the opin
ion of working men on this subject and
I! it Is the desire on their parts that thc
stores close at an earlier hour (hsn at
present, all well and good; bul tonn
dcrtakc such measures as are being con
sidrrcd by 11 portion ol thc business
houses, without giving an opportunity
lor an expression ol opinion by the clans
ol Ihe roiiiiniiiiitv who will be most
affected, is I think unfair and atbitrary
in Ihe extreme.
Yours Faithfully.

the emblem ol justice that is ever brought

individuals nor unions, not manufacturers nur factories. It represents never
dying, ever living principles of justice
and right, for the sake of right. livery
person in or out is a gainer by ils universal adoption. It means more wagea
for wage earners, more money to buy
necessities, more school houses aud
more children to occiqiy them, more
persons with competence and leas millionaires. The latlcr is the only thing
thst will decrease, and they can be
spared.—Quincy Labor News.

1 \>/>\-right loot.
Now there was a certain
man who had eleven sons,
one wise and ten foolish. And
it came to pass that the wise
son called together his ten
foolish brothers and spoke to
them privily, saying: "Behold I have discovered a forest in which there is much
wood. I desire, therefore,
that you go out the wood,
clearing up and piling the
brush as you go, that there
be nothing left standing. And
for every cord of wood cut
and ricked on the ground I
will pay three-quarters of a
dollar." And they all hark-
ened unto him, and gathered
together their axes.theirsaws,
their mauls and wedges, and
went into the forest to work
even as it had been told them.
They toiled all the day
through until late and when
the wood was counted up,
there was one cord for each
of the ten laborers. Now the
wise son had bargained with
a man to take all the wood
from thejground at one dollar
and twenty-five cents per cord.
And it was so.
After many months labor
the forest disappeared, and
there was therefore no more
wood to chop. So the ten
foolish sons, having not received more than was sufficient for a bare living, were
soon in sore need. And they
called their wise brother out.
and said unto him: "We pray
thee give us work, lest we
starve." But he answered and
said: "Wait yet awhile." But
they, being distressed for lack
of food and clothing, pressed
urgently upon him for many
days, saying: "If thou wilt
give us money wherewith to
buy food and clothing for ourselves, our wives and our children, we will be thy servants
Howbeit, when the wise -on
had taken unto himself a wife
he straightway sent for his
brethren to come before him.
and when they had come he
said: "Go ye into the woods
round about and make rails
and fence the fields you have
' leared, an.l I will give  unto
you money to buy   food   and
■ lothing for yourselves, your
wivo and your children.   For
. '. ■ ry day's work  I    will   give
each ' in- three-quarters ol a
dollar, Ami behold, when the
fields are fenced I will have
vou build me luu ses, .m.1 cisterns, and barns, and make nie
furniture for my houses." And
it was so, even as he has said.
Then In- commanded that the
fairest .me of  his  brothers'
.laughter- I.e brought unto
him for a   house   maid,   .ind
that tin- fairest son be brought
to fetch wood and water, .iml
to feed and care for the slot k.
.ind to harness and drive imt
for him and his family as required. So they sent unto
him a daughter, and a son.
even as he had commanded.
Then he put the men to break
ing the ground, seeding, cultivating and gathering the crops
into his barn.
And it came to pass, after a
few years of faithful service,
that a disease broke out
among them from which some
of the men. their wives and
children died. Whereupon
they sent a messenger unto
their wise brother, saying:
"We pray thee give us a convenient spot wherein to bury
our dead." But he answered
and said: "Go to, and bury
your dead out on the commons, for I have no land to
spare." On account of his refusal many were filled with indignation and murmured
greatly. On learning of their
disquiet the wise man said:
"They are becoming wise,
even as 1 am, and I fear lest
they do me violence and rob
me of my possessions. Lo! I
am resolved what I will do. 1
will hire men of soft words
and send them to these, my
brethren, that they may speak
into their cars and turn them
from their wrath." So the
men of soft words went
straightway unto his brethren
and did as he had bargained
witli them to do. And they
promised, saying: "We will
no longer be angry with tbis,
our brother, for if he did not
give us employment we would
starve. Is it not by reason of
his kindness that we live?"
And they returned, every man
unto his work, and remained
faithful servants for many
But as their families increased they were no more able to
supply their needs with the
small wages received. And
they were very poor, many of
them suffering from hunger
and cold. And they complained unto their brother,
saying: "We must have more
wages, else we cannot long
survive." But he explained
to them, how that if he paid
more wages he could therefore
make no profit on their labor,
in which case he could not afford to hire them. S.. they
gave heed to his words anil
returned satisfied,every man
to his work. By reason of
this tin* wise man was much
pleased and said: "Now. as I
have them pacified. I will pull
down my storehouses andl
build greater; and there 1 will
bring all my wheal and my
good tilings, and I will say tO
myself, soul' thou hast an

little attention. Kossland, through ita
indualries pays considerable each year
inlo thc provincial treasury and none
will deny that it should be entitled to
much more consideration than it baa
received. That in the present condition
of the eystem the schools should be
turned over to the city, savors much of
what ie not right. If tbe legislature
withes Ihc cities of the province to tsk»
care of their own schools, then tliev
should certainly place them in a condition that would not require an immediate outlay of a considerable sum, or
appropriate an amount that would cover
present abtolute necessities. It is bad
enough tbat in a growing city like Roes-

received so little attention without
shouldering upon thc ratepayers the re>
