1.ATUKDAY, JUNK 2, 1900.
One of Mackintosh's speakers in
the Boundary  made the claim and
. a couple of the subsidized organs ut
once took up nnd repeated the infernal lie, that Mr. Curtis had not
bett and would not Ire a friend ti)
lahci', that ho is in fact nu enetm,
and attempted to hold up Mackintosh us a greater friend. Here is n
letter written by Mr. Curlis, which
appealed in the Hossland Minei,
December 2(1. 1800, months before
Mr. Curtis dreamed of entering
provincial politics. Ua certainly is
radical enough, going much farther
ihan (lo most labor men.
"Tl.e higher the wages the bettor
for tho locnl conn: unity. There-
fore, tbe community's interest will
be with thn strikers und against
the handful of mine owners ami
■ Ictci'iiiiu. dlv against the employment of cheap labor, whether dago.
Jap or olher.   'I he community and
tho strikers have tho voles. What
is to prevent tho local legislature
backed by an overwhclu.iugly popular vote, enacting that  uo  limit r*
ground laborer shall bo paid less
thnu the standard   wage?   With
such nu csnctinciit, nnd   lhe  miijc
owner remaining obdurate nnd closing the mine, whal is to pie-
vent the legislature toying:
'We grunted this claim to vou
on the implied cui'lilioii nnd trust
that if profit paying ore were found
you would exploit1 it, and so enrich
snd build up the cxmiiinuity. You
have such ore butyou wilfully refuse (o carry out y*sur teust; there
fore, we will citrY* it. out for you,
nnd thereupon leaving or working
tho mine, and holding the rent or
profits for the benefit of the owners.' Would not such legislutiou
lie lietter than to permit these mine
owners to conspire together and so
net ns to cause great injury nnd
even ruin thoiiennds who have settled in the vicinity of those mines
nnd are properly dependent upon
the mines being worked for their
"ell-being? I think so very decidedly and shall uot hesitate to
advocate nnd support lUJll legislation. This is a progressive age.
und if the general good of (be grea(
iiiiiss of people in our mining localities, justly require such legisln-
latiou, I do not see why tbey should
not have it an against tho selfish
interests of half a hundred mine
owners who innyhnp havo flouted
pitying properties iu England nt a
very excessive valuation, and now
wish to blame the H hour law for
their inability to pny the excursive
sums promised as dividends, or
wish to sweat labor to pay what
uevcr should bave been promised,"
Mackintosh mi I ly should employ
someone with a good memory to
write his letters and Interviews for
him. In the past he never tohl
the sniiie story twice. Here is i.
portion of one of his interviews up-
pearipg in a Montreal paper while
he was mst, and since be became n

Notice nl.ove he say. he does
not nttribute the depression to the
■ perntiou of the eight hour law.
In an in ler view iu the same paper
ill September lud, he slid:
'•AI the present time many nf
the mines nre closed down eonse-
■pi.'iil iij.iiii lln* eight hour law. I
hope, however, that some solution
nf the pnswnt difficulty will be nr
rived Bt as the present dnrmaul
condition of the mine!, is grunt Iv
prejudicial to the business of that
part of tho country.''
In Ibe I—(onto Globe of October
0,1809, ho says of the eight ht.ur
"In consequence senres of iniue*-
Inive been closed. 'Ihi . I look upon as very tlelriinenln] to business
and is likely to prevent investment."
Tl.e interview first quoted gives
iho lie to tl.e two earlier ones.
It is line Mr. Mackintosh did
uot hesitate to advocate a settlement by mutual agreement, before
he liec.'iiic a candidate. In fact
only three weeks licfore his nomination, ho advocated such a utile-
ment but only on the basis ot the re*
pea! ol tho pcualy clause of the
eight hour law. If this clause wits
repealed, the law itself might stand
lie wrote:
"Tbe eight hour law need not be
rcpca'eil, but au understanding
could Ui urrivad at expunging lines
nad compulsory hours, nnd pro-
tecting those who desire to mnke
conl i acts, from nny interference
Upon the pnrtof Ihose wbo object
to such being entered iuto or prosecuted."
Mr. Mackintosh is now throwing
bouquets to the minors. Last An*

A ml how can tlu-y explain lhe
following from the Ucgiuu Lead—I,
the principal exponent of Conserv-
tism iu the N, W. Theuitichi up-
peered March 7. 1808.
"The conduct uf business by the
present chief magistrate of the Territories is bringing scandal nnd contempt upou the honorable oflice
which he holds. When the incumbent is spi ken of w ith .feces, respect
for the office itsell cannot loug be
maintained. The name of Iho oue
who in the Northwest al this moment occupies the place of honor,
but two sea's below the Throne of
(■rent Britinn, is a bv-word .ft. tl a
reproach. Tbe situation is bringing discredit upon the Dt.iuiui.ii
Government, whose appointee he is.
The Hon. C H. Mackintosh is
not playing the part of a liiae. •
* * For tho In nm of uu
honorable and pictu.esipi.i Institution, an<i fur th*- preservation of its
own preatige, the government cannot too quickly recall tho I.ieit-

To all intents and purposes, the •

Therefore we hnve iu Mr. Mackintosh's party, 3.1 candidates opposed to, and only two in favor of

The Interviewer;
I am my norma! sell again, after a
protracted si. g.* ol "Mafeking releif,"
.truring whieh I found it necessary to go
on a Hsl.ii.g trip In order thst I might
copiously anplv Columbie River extract
to my aching brow. These applications
had the de-ired effect, and it is not now
necessary to lie uiy hat on with a siring.
It also might not be out of Ihe way lo
state tbat the editor-in-chief gave me a
sight draft on a free lunch saloon at
Trail, which saloon I palrnnlied to the
(.ill extent. The bill will be along In
due course an.l the editor will then see
how Ihoioughly he kepi in touch with
my movements.
The drit pereon I met on my return
who had just come hack Irom the Iloun*
dary country, lie hid just been up to
the Miner oiKce, where he had dictated
It couple of column! ot slosh to the e.li-
anr about hii trip, for he always hid
the failing of liking to see hie name in
print, 1 wn if he oniy walked out ae far
aa the base ball grounds.
Like Aid. Dean, Mr. McRae did nol
wish to talk tor publication to any paper
outside ol the Miner, so lhe horse editor
was again compelled h. interview himself ia follows:
