Sir: In Saturday's Reeoid there
appears a communication commenting upon the resolutions sent
by the different onions of tbe Weaten. Federation of Miners, In British
Columbia, to the Provincial government, protesting against the repeal
of the eight-hour law, io which on
invidious comparison ia drown between tbat document and Ihe One
presented by tbe miue owners'
The latter, we are toll, did not
question the honest;, or good intentions of the miners in any particular, but calmly atated the reasons,
ou legal nnd economic grounds,
why the eight-hour law should be
repealed,   aud   au   adjustment   of
him lo piirt'h.ise thiil which he dm-,   these   matters   be   I
not want, and this is iu direct violation of every principle of freedom.
But the capita list sins if laborers
cau organize unions so inn they,
only they oall them trusts. If oue
man may try to sell his goods at
the highest price be cau get for
them, a number of men uiuy eo
iiptiaic to do tho -aine thing.
Again, if (lie laborer may boycott

Thus we have the union ami the

Again, the writer aoys, there are

motive for demanding the repeal of
the eight-hour law, why does nearly

social freedom and who have
pledged themselves to lend their
support to unionism. Every time
a union man buys an urticle produced by one of these non-union
or nuti union manufacturers, he
literally forges oue more link in
(hut chain which binds the
laborer to the heel of slavery,
and is uot only depriving union

The evening paper has left no'pAPITAL
doubt iu the minds of (ho citizens
of Kossland, since its issue of Jan-
nary 27, as to its ail inula toward

established itself as the organ of
capital and anti-uiiioti promoters.
It lias left but uno-point in doubt,
namely, the powers behind tho
throne, and even this is not
entirely beyond tho knowledge of
the public. Iu the case of two of
the backers of Ihe plant, we wonder
lliey do not at once make their
names known, ns they have at least
always been fearless advocates of
capital and combines, but in thu
case of the third this concealment
of his true position in in perfect
accord with all tho acts by which
be is known. Accustomed as he
ononis always to have beeii to lending a dual life, we should naturally
expect him lo continue to support
one cause while pict ■,tiling perfect

8ATUKD4.Y. FKRBUAKY 3, 1900.
We publish hi this issue of the
Votes a letter from Mayor Good-"
eve containing his explanation for
not signing (he petition in regard
to the repeal of the eight-hour law,
which  was   circulated   among" the
business men of Rosslaud some two
weeks ago, nnd to which the house
of Goodcve Bros, was reported to
have refused its signature. Mr.
<Joodeve   claims   that    "consider-
oble capital is being made out of
hia refnsnl to sign the meniorinl in
fsvor Of the eight-hour law, and
that on these grounds those opposed to'tiim are ifnikiug an attempt
to bovoott his place of business."
That there is some feeling iu ihe
refund  of the chit/   magistral.- to
sign  o petition   so evidently   (he
desire of tbe mass of his supporters,
or tbat tbe/*ihould express their
wonderment, is not so Very strange,
and his excuses for not assisting in
the support  of a measure which
stands *o plainly as the desire of
the people', are to us both flimsy
and insufficient.   The only reason
for a man "not signing that petition
of tbe business men of Rosslond is
that he does not believe iu it.
Mr. (ioorleve ssys he felt it his
duty to remain in an absolutely
neutral position, which is a position
we fail to see how any public man
can hold iu so important and public
a question. It is a question Hint
must needs claim every man having
on Interest iu the welfare and
prosperity of the Province on either
one side or the other. There is no
neutral ground. Every man who
has reached the years of under-
Standing, und has considered the
question st nil, is either for or
against it, and the people of Ross-
laiul, one of the camps most vitally
interested in the support i-f tho
law, are justified in expecting tho
chief magistrate of (he city to drop
down on one side of the fence.
We Would like to ask what (I I
fullest extent of (he iiiftueuce of
Mr.(loodeve'nofficial position would
be for settling tho trouble "should
the 1111I..1 lunate condition arise
which was set forth iu the preamble
to that petition?" Would he count
more than one in Milling any dispute? Hn consideration of thnt wise
old saw, "An ounce of preventative
is belter than a pound of cure," it
seems that it would be wiser for
every man to uSe his influence
for what it is worth to prevent
strife rattier than stand quietly by-
till wor is declared before taking a
stand.' •

Sir: 1 understand that some capital is being in.nlc out of luy refusal
to sign the memorial to the Provincial government in favor of the
eight hour law, and that an attempt has been made by those who
aro opposed to in. to boycott my
place ol business on this ground.
I refused to sign this petition,
not because I was opposed to tho
eight-hour law. but because I felt it
my duty to rnmaiu in an absolutely
neutral position, so that should the
unI'm tuuate condition nrise which
was set forth in the preamble to
thai petition, I would be able to
,,-e to the fullest extent any influence that my official position might
give me to assist in a fair adjustment of the same.
I may sny that jus* a short time

ing companies witb which I was
connected to sign the memoria
presented by the mine owners' association to the Provincial government on the same subject. The
Kenneth (Tamar&c) Mining Company, of which I am tbe president,
operating in Ymir during the past
two years witb a force of from ten
to twenty men, was urged to sign
it, but I instructed the secretary
not to do bo.
I think that with the namo fair
discussion between miners and miue
owners, nnd a willingness on the
part of both to meet each other in
a spirit of fairnese, I do not see

moteri of Ilrittib Columbia ii occupying
af-lirg. share of  pnhlic attention, and a I
l.w words Irom the opposing element,!
namely, tbe miners, *srs certainly nol I

Th. War Ksgle Mining Company commenced opeiations in this Province in
IS'.iii, first by purchaiing th* Crown
Point claim. This proving i dead letter,
lo rai'oiiip-iise themselvrs they then
bought; lha War Ksgle, paying somi-
where between $71)0,000 or |H0O,OO0, con-
snlidstiog It with a Slocan properly and
C'own Point. Neither of the lalter have
hooq worker! for it lent a year. The
burden ofTlheVe^ poor luyrilments have
all been earidled on Ibe War Eagle, and
notwithstanding th. Iscl'.lhal Ibey have
spent over 1100,000 in permsnent ini-
nrovimenti, Ibey bav* during the past
year be*n;>bl. to piy;t3l5.0O0 in dividends, or about 46 per rent, of the purchase price. Yet in the fsre •■( these

Messrs. I iuoderhau, A Illsckslork paid
lor Ihe Centre Star fS.IHXI.OOO in 18WI.
From October, at which time tbry commenced operations, they shipped no ore
till the lolluwing May, and then only in
limited quantities. From that time tbry
have ipenl and contracted lor at least
IKu.OOO lor improvements. Yet they
have Just declared a dividend ol 130,000
or 1)$ gOTOMrt. on Ihe purchase price,
and'at the same Time Isme s slat, nient
ticil miners of a number of the men
Ihey employ at a lo* icale of wage*.
Whan tbeia aame wen have become
proficient in mining these same wages
will not satisfy them, ind they will go
where they are paid according to their
ability. Then the shareholders can have
lb. pleasure ol educating a mw lot.
This may lis philanthruphy but it is
nol husiuen.
