Reported Discovery of Immensely
Rich Iron Deposit.
According to rumor prevalent in Ladysmith the trip of Hon. Mr. Duuemuir to
a point north of Comox to Inspect certain iron prospects resulted in a discovery of tbe highest importance. It is said
that a vast b >dy of high-grade iron ore,
estimated by one expert at five million
tons, was found in a spot which makes
the work of getting it out very easy.
Report further alleges lhat this great ore
body Ib not. situated within tbe E. *k N,
railway belt, but that Hon. Mr. Dunsmuir and bis colJe-tgues have been fortunate ennnirh to secure the property,
McBsrs. Huuter, Little and Sutton, who

Beemed to be very well pleased with tbe

When the effects of a great industrial
sttnggle are felt In one's own borne, one
takes an interest in tbat struggle far
different from the mere academic inter
eite which might be felt in the matter
ai an example ol the varying operations
of capital and labour.
In onr previous issue appeared a telegraphic deipatch to the effect tbat the
WeiAn-n-^'ijo-eiftion of Miuera might
mcceedin doling every coal mine in
North America in order to put an end to
the struggle by compelling the coal maa-
ten, or operators as they are called in
the Eastern States, to come to terms.
This wonld be a strike witb a vengeance, tnd coming on tbe verge of win'
ter wonld certainly rouse tbe mass of the
people to some very determined action,
It il difficult ont here to learn the ex<
act ground of quarrel betwten musters
tnd men in Pennsylvania, but broadly
ipeakingit il a dispute about wages,
Ihe Pennsylvania coal miner is a serf
compared with tbe miners of the West,
We hear of able-bodied men, fathers of
families, and passing aa skilled workmen receiving seven dollars a week for
thtir lit dayi' toil underground. Many
a Western coal miner receives ai much
for one day's work.
Then, in contrast to that fact is the
other that tbe "operators" have made
tnd are making millions untold out of
those properties. Tbe contrast is not
pleasant to contemplate, and was bound
to engender feelings of bitterness
amongst the ill.paid toilers.
Nor have tbe remarks dropped by
Preiident Baer oi the Beading Railway
been ol a character to turn away wrath,
They have been contemptuous and truculent, showing a chocking want of
human lympatby with brother man-
bat we mmt beg Mr. Baer'B pardon; of
course he doeB not recognize those slaves
t.t teven dollars a week as of tbe same
olay as himself, but as dumb driven
cattle to be worked as cheaply as may
What a brilliant contrast do the col
liery owners of Vancouver Island present
to those hard taskmasters of Pennsylvania. Here a man is treated as a man
ud honoursd for bis manhood; labour
here has a dignity totally absent ftom it
in the mining legions of Pennsylvania |
the highest scale of wagea paid on the
North American continent for thia class
of work is paid here, and the licet of
feeling exiiti between masters and men.
We hope that some better solution to
the preient trouble in the East will be
fonndthan a itrike ol all the ooal miners
ol Canada and the United Stales. That
wonld be a disaster that would check
America's progress for at least ten years,
Every English-speaking workingman
lias heard ol tbe celebrated Tom Mann,
one ol the chiefs of the British Labor
party, and a champion of all that Labor
is demanding as ita righti today. Mr,
Mann recently paid a vilit ol inipection
to New Zealand, to look into the condition! of labor in tbat renowned Socialistic paradise. His viewi are embodied
n a line article in the September number of the Nineteenth Century and After
Review. Like most of Mr, Mann's utterances those opinions go itraight to
the point, aud do not spare New Zealand
where it ie necessary to criticise.
He went all throngh the two island!
and seemingly saw everything that ,vas
worth observing, touching labor'a interests. We bave not room Ior tbe whole
article, which we ihould very much like
to publish entire, and which some ol the
larger newspapers of thil province'certainly should publish, if they have the
interests of labor as much at heart ts
The Leader has, onr critica to the contrary notwithstanding.
We take pleasure in printing t few of
Mr. Mann's mors important findings,
and hope that they will be of some service to our workingmen in helping them
to form correct conclusions regarding the
actual conditions of life and labor in the
antipodean colony.
New Zealand's climate is far from
what it is "cracked up" to be. Fog,
rain, and tha "Barber," a wind tbat
more tban literally shaves tbe skin off,
are common conditions in Wellington.
Married men have tbe preference on all
Government work. The Government
inakea an annual subsidy ol £750 a year
to the Salvation Army, which looks
ailer many who cannot get work irom
tbe Government, Honse rent is very
high, but wages are good, irom the old
country standard, bnt not Irom that ol
British Columbia. Mechanics gei 12 SO
and labourers $2 a day. Stoppages oi
work irom Industrial dispute! arealmoat
unknown. The parliamentary franchise
is adult suffrage; ont person, one vote
and all elections on one day, Hence the
people oi New Zealand can make their
influence (elt in the legislature more
strongly than the people oi any other
The railways are almost exclusively
slate-controlled. Two coal mines have
been taken over and are being prepared
by Government lor Government work,
Thn Government bae power to take over
or establish shipping necessary to carry
and distribute coal.
The Factories Act, ior the first time
in any country, regulates the working
tiorirB of adult males, and fixes tnem at
IS hours a week, and the working hours
ol women at 45 a week. The Act pro*
vides that no boy or girl Bhall be employe! in a factory at Isbs than five
shillings a week. Tbe Shops and Shop
Assistants Act provides that all assistant! muit have a half-holiday on one
working day of eacb wetk.
The moit discussed ol all tht Act! of
the Colonv is undoubtedly the Concilia*
tion and Arbitration Aot. It providei
for the formation of induitrial nnioni;
in the case of employer! uy two, in the
case ot workers any leven penoni can
form a union and register under the Act.
To prevent multiplication of nnioni the
registrar may reluse to register more
than one union connected with tbe lime
trade in the same locality. The Colony
is divided into seven diitricti, each with
ite Board oi Conciliation, ol five persons,
inclu ling the chairman, elected by the
members ot the board, themselves elected by the unioni oi worker! ud employers In equal number. Regulation
fees are paid for each sitting.
Umatisiactory recommendation! of
Ibe Board are referred by mutual consent ol tbe partiea to the Arbitration
Court, consisting of three member! appointed by the Governor; a Judge of the
supreme court, a reprenntitive ol the
employers and one lor tbe workmen,
The workers have made much uwoi the
Act, and employers-not so nineti. -'It
does not work altogether ideally, in-
some cases wages have bean reduced aa
a direct reBult oi the awardt, The working ol the Act call! lor cautioui handling
on tbe part ol Ihe rank and file, especially officers ol unions.
New Zealandera have not been successful in carrying an eight-hour bill,
except in tbe case ol miners, bnt the
carrying of the 48 hour working week
has caused little objection. The Britiih
Factory and Workihop Act, 1901, lection
24, providei that the houn of women
ehall be from 6 to 9,7 to 7, or 8 to 8, including meal timei, The New Zealand
Act forbida the employment of women
between the houn of 6 p.m. and 8 t.m,
The age when boyi or girli may Hart
work ie 14 yean. Every luoh boy or
girl working in whatever capacity, If
under 10 yean muit receive not leu
tban three shillings weekly, with an
annual increase ol not leu thu three
■hilling! weekly till twenty yetri of agt.
Bat employer! tnd manager! have
shown muoh ingenuity lu nullifying the
intended good results, and there ii t
contlnnal "dodging" of the provliioni of
tbe Act, by employers tnd employed,
the latter otten accepting lower wages
than called for by tbe Aot.
New Westminster, according to tht
Colonist, Ib a place whore people nevtr
die of anything but old Ige or ennui.
Seems to us, though, that Weitmlmter
has shown more enterprise thu either
Victoria or Vtnconver, not only In tht
diiection of municipal Improvement, be*
Ing a bold originator In thit lint, bnt
also In the matter of iport, ud the
managing of considerable enterprises,

Bre'r Lowery of the Now Denver
Ledge holds that the B.O, ranchers oru
probably more lazy than any other people in the province, because they make
a living apparently without any effort,
Apparently, yes, but did the sage oi B.
C.'s Lucerne ever tackle a ten-acre patch
ol B.C. bush in tho endeavour to hew
out a home for himself and chickens?
That is what makes so many permanently ti«d.    __________
BritiBh mercantile bouscB have actually come to tbe conclusion that if they
would survive in the race tbey must
make a radical change in the style ol
man they Bend out to take-orders at
home ud abro d. ""They now want
bright, intelligent, -wide-awako young
men whose knowledge oi the business is

Vanconver World, the clown of British
Columbia journalism, takes the article
Irom the Leader regarding tbe proposed
government buildings, plasters it over a
large area of its front page, with tbe
date line Ladysmith, as if it wore a de<
Bpatch from thia place, sticks one ol
those hideous nightmare headings over
it, for which the World and Province
are notorious, and thus attempts to build
np a sensation. The Vancouver journalist! should reBign and take billets on
country papers where tbey might learn
something about newspaper work, II it
was only kindling the office Btove In the
morning or greneing the Washington
handpreeB.       ';
When the Mohammedan soldiers who
attended the coionation were leaving
England on their return to India, thoy
spoke Ireely on tbe subject of women.
One tall Bengalee assured a Loudon reporter that nothing struck the Indian
troops more than the contrast between
the condition ol English and Indian
women. "In my couotry," said the
soldier, "the Gosha system has been
accepted and we distrust women. Our
proverbs lay to ui t "Trust tbe worsl oi
poisons, trust the rogue elephant, trust
the thieves and those who walk wicked
ly, but women trust Ihou not, Trust
women and yon will become as a beggar
in the Btreet. Listen not to woman's
word." Horribly iingnllant. Wonder
it there.ie uy truth in it.
'-111*, of connt, only natural (says the
tHrapliic) tint the merchant skipper
should have changed Bomewhat with the
timet from hit old quid-loving pride
oeiior, Bnt that nautical language still
retains, on occasion, much of its pristine
flavour, waa recently brought home to
some missionary passengers on a China
coasting steamer, who, hearing that the
captain owned a famous talking parrot,
asked to Bee the bird, "Well," said tbe
skipper on their return forward, "did
bttalk well, gentlemen?" "No, cap
tain," they sorrowfully replied, "we
can't exactly lay he talked well; but he
talked very distinctly."

sailed for San Francisco on Saturday
night with 4,310 tone of Wellington coal.
Pilot Captain Yates took ber to aea.
Str. Farrallon of the Paget Sound-
Alaska line called Sunday to fill her
bunkerB. She had 200 tons of freight in
tranelt and ten passengers bound for the
Ship Kinross, Captain Murray, arrived in port Monday night from Victoria where she underwent repairs. She
loads Wellington coal for Kalni, Hawaii-
an Islands.
After two or three daye of quietnesB
around the wharfs the steamers came
In a bunch Inst Saturday and Sunday,
nnd there waa a resumption of tbe customary bustle.
Barque Antiope, Captain Geo. Murray, ia on Bullen'a Waja, Victoria, receiving tltivation, She will come to
Lady-smith when the repairers complete
their job, to load coal for Hawaiian ports.
A number of the Amn, ship Macey'.
crew w nt to be paid off here, having
come with the ship from Capetown, but
Captain Qroth wishes them to accompany tiie vessel to San Francisco, where
the pay-off ia to take place.
Str. Thistle arrived early Sunday
morning Irom a point north of Comox,
with the Hon. James Dunsmuir, Superintendent F. D. Little, Wellington Colliery Co., Superintendent Joseph Hunter, E. & X. Railway, and Mr. Sutton,
mineralogist. Tbey were returning to
Victoria alter inspecting some very
promising iron pruf-nectB In the north.
The party left for Victoria ou the Sunday morning train.
Amn. ship Macey Ib now under the
chutes, loading a full cargo of Wellington coal for San Francisco. The Macey
ia one of the moat interesting vcfsoIb
that have called at the port of Lady
Bmtth lately. She Ib one of tbe famouB
American clipper fleet created by tbe
genfua of Donald Mai-Kay of New England, and her speed in a fair wind is etir-
priaing. The Macey has run, day after
day, for many daye, at the rate of 370
miles a day, has made some record passaged on tbe ocean, and haa been in
every important port in the world* Her
ruu from South Africa to tbe Western
American coast wae done in steamer
time, in fact tbe Macey can tail rings
round most of tbe big tramp steamers
when the wind serves. She presents
noble sight at sea with all sail eet and
moving along like a thing of life. One
of the curiosities aboard the Macey is an
auchor which belonged to the notorious
Alabama, the celebrated pirate which
waa built to prey on the Federal shipping during the American civil war, and
was battered to pieces and sunk off the
French coast by the U. S. S. Kearnnrge.
Tbe Macey's interior fittings are sump-
tuoup, the cabin resembling that of a
tnillionair-j's yacht. Tho accommodation for tbe crew Ib also spacious and
comfortable. Captain II. B. Groth, her
master, is naturally enough proud of his
vessel. The Macey will probably he
ready for her voyag- to San Francisco
about the end of the week.
