minis OF
What the Eight-Hour Law
Means-
TO PAY THREE DOLLARS
Ten of the Principal Mines of tlie Nelson
Division Compelled to Reduce Wages.
As the aiinoueement has heen nirde
that the Government of British Columbia, purpose foroing tho Amendment
to the Metalliferous Mines Inspection
Aot, making eight ho.irs a working
day for thoso employed underground
in metalliferous uiinos; Son. IS!.���"No
person shall be employed underground
in any metalliferous mine for more
than eight hours in every twenty-four
hours;" the undersigned as representing one of the two parties mainly
affeoted, consider it advisable to make
public their views ou the situation
created by this uncalled for legislation,
and to indicate what thoir line of action must inevitably be.
While the undersigned aro determined to respect and adhere to tho laws of
the Province, it may be pointed out
that this law is far reaching in the
injuries it must iutliet upon the mining interests of the Province, aud ou
the amount of wages earned by tlie
men.
It means reducing the hours of labor
in the mines from 20 hours a day to
16 hours, as many of the mines are so
circumstanced that three shifts cannot be worked to advantage. This
moans a reduction of 20 per cent, in
the an'ouut of the production of many
mi es, and a reduction of 20 per cent
in the development, work lining carried on in the mines preparing for
production and a reduction iu tho supplies used in tne mii.es.
The most amicable relations existed, aud still exist, between the employers and employed at the miues.
The men were earning good wagos,
equal to anv beiug paid in camps in
the United States, aud higher thau
those paid in many,and they were rendering good services for tnese wages.
If anv discontent was rife at the existing Btate of affairs, it was uot generally known. It is therefore deeply
to be regretted that the Legislature
has see fit disturb the existing harmony, to interfere with the growing
prosperity of the mining districts,
to reduce the wagos earning power of
the men employed, and to interfere
with the free right of contract hitherto enjoyed.
As to the future, after the 1st of
Jnue next, at the miues represented
by the undersigned, the standard rate
of wages that will bo paid to skilled
miners for an eight hours working day
-will be three dollars ($3.00), and othor
labor will necessarily be also paid for
according to the time worked.

Loudon, May 10. ���The Filipino
Junta hore informs tho Associated

message of enquiry was sent to Aguinaldo, who replied that the announce

with the dispute over Deadman's
Island. Matters reached an acute
stage when Ludgate once more started
work on the island witn 50 men. Five

INCREASED THE   MEN'S WAGES.
Pretoria, May 10���The Britisli
Agent and Charge d'Affaires, Mr. Con-
Ingham Green, had an interview with
President Kruger this afternoon and
expressed regret that uiou who had
worn the Queen's uniform should be
concerned in such a movement. President Kruger replied that he would
not believe that the prisoners wero
British officers uutil it hud beeu proved.
He added that he hoped the affair
would not interfere with the proposed
meeting between himself and Sir
Alfred Milner, Governor of Capo
Colony, and British High Commissioner for South Africa.
London, Mav 7.���All the morning
papers devote their attention principal editorials to the arrests in the
Transvaal, counselling a postponement of conclusions unitl the facts of
tho case are ascertained and declining to believe that British officers or
subjects have been guilty of what the
Standard terms "such treasonable
folly"
Tho Daily Mail says ; "The conditions are that of a boiler with furnaces
at full blast and safety valves down
sore wed.
"No conspiracy can flourish while
freedom esia'n, and the Kruger poli.iy
will inevitably produce   resistance."
The Times, which repudiates the
idea that the prisoners are of weight
among the British Utilauders, or represent important interests from any
kind at, Johannesburg, suggest that
President Kruger has been imposed
upon by his own detectives. The papers publish an interview with Mr.
Chamberlain, who apparently depreciates the seriousness of the arrests, but says ho does not recognize
the names of tho prisoners or understand the causes of arrests.
Cape Town, May Ki.���According to
advices from Prstoria, the charge
against the prisoners arrested to day at
Johannesburg is that while staying in
the Rand privately they wero really engaged in enlisting men for tho pur-
uusos of rebellion when they were
ready to give the signal. It is said
that the enlistment roster included
2,000 men, and that a number of in-
cirmiuating documents were found at
the time tho arrests were made.
London, May 10,���Mr. Chamberlain
Secretary of Stato for the Colonies who
was interviewed iu the lobby of the
House this evening said he had heard
nothing officially regarding tho arrests in the Transvaal and did not
think that too serious signification
ought  to bo attached to them.
No information had reached him
from South Africa, he asserted, that
could lead him in any way to anticipate or to explain the arrests.
The news caused cosideralilo excitement among tho members of the
House, but littlo disposition was manifested to credit rumors of a rebellious
co'ispiracy.
Pretoria, May 10.���The officers arrested, who aro eight in number, ure

Tlie Grain Shovellers' Difficulty Arranged,
But Other Laborers Show No
Signs of Yielding-
Buffalo, May 16.���There is practically no change in the strike situation
aloug the docks tonight and tho busings of this port is at a standstill.
\n agreement was reached today be-
t''cen Contractor Connors and the
8( 'iking grain shovellers,iu which both
tha men who have stood by the contractor and the strikers were to he
taken into the new .grain shoveling
union. I
This practically settled all the existing trouble as far as the grain men
were concerned, but as they havo
pledged themselves )*ot Io return to
work until the grievances of tho striking freight handlers, coal heavers,
ore, dock men and elevvtor machinists
havo been remedied, theie is no tell
ing when work on the docks will be
resumed.
In the meantime vessel men and
shippers are losing a great deal of
money. Millions of bushels of grain
are held hack at Chicago and Duluth
aud although there aie vessels to carry-
it to Buffalo, vessel owners will not
take the risk of having their boats tied
up there for an indefinite period.
Chicago, May 16.���Shippers were
beiiging for boats to take grain to
Buffalo today but vessel men would
not hear of sending any ships to that
point uutil the strike was in bettor
shape.
Private telegrams from Buffalo were
of tho most discouraging nature,
with uo improvement i" sight. It is
getting as bail as if one of the greatest
outlets to the grain traffic in the
world was suddenly blocked off the
map without warning to prepare for
the change.

TRUSTS  MAKE  PRICES
The Enormous Capitalization of Oil Trust
and Its Power of Arranging Dividends Explained.
Washington, May 10.���Attorney-
General Frank S. Mouett, of Ohio,
was beforo tho Industrial Commission
us a witness iu the trust investigation. His testimony related almost exclusively to the Staudard Oil Trust,
against wihch he has been proceeding
iu his official capacity iu Ohio.
Mr. Monnett gave the figures showing the capital stock of tho twenty
companies comprising tho trust ub well
as their valuation, showing the
capitalization to amount in tho aggregate to $102,233,000 nnd the valuation
to 8121,031,000.
He said the trust could make its dividends whatever it desired them to be,
as it controlled completely the retail
price of oil. Mr. Monett told of the distribution of stock of the tiust, saying
that the trustees held 488,280 of the
700,000 shares, aud that Mr. John D.
Rookfeller, as chairman of the truste es
hold a majority of the stock thus dis -
tributed, giving him the balance of
power.
"This gives him absolute, individual
control," remarked Mr. North, to
which Mr. Monnett replied.
"x'es, it is practically ono man's
power" Mr. Monnett insisted that
(he way to control the trusts was to
control the transportation companies,
which, he thought, tho oourta could
do.as if tbe courts could not do this the
charters of tho roads should be taken
from them. Tho government had uo
more right to permit discrimination
or other abuses by the railway companies iu the interest of monopolies than
it had to permit counterfeiting.
Speaking of tho earnings of the oil
trust, Mr. Monnett estimated thut tho
gross reoeiptS were $120,000,000 a year
ou the Ohio product alone, uud he
said that it was nil profit ovei four
ceut a gallou on retiued oil,

STILLBORN.
Tho Coast papers have dropped the
offer of a million for the Pacilic cable
like a hot potato. They wore quite taken
with it at first; then they had doubts,
and next thoy veered right around
and said it would never do. That is,
all of them but one or two Government
papers that kuow it to bo thoir husi-
noss and think it to bo their duty to
support anything the Government propose But these as well as the others
havo allowed the matter to drop out
of sight. Thoy havo been able to do
this without attracting much attention, owing to tho exceedingly fortunate circumstance that in both Yictoria
and Vancouver other questions have
arisen to overshadow it. Tho populace is au excitable ono, aud a Utile
thing will serve to divert it. The new
tone given to the Deadman's Island
affair has sufficed for Vancouver, and
iu Victoria the people are shooting
aud wrangling day and night over tho
proposal of a new ferry service with
the Mainland. These great matters
have providentially arisen to relieve
the newspapers of the unpleasant duty
of giving their attention to the crazy
offer in conueotion with the Pacifio
cable.
It is doubtloss mortifying to the
Ministers who conceived it, but to all
British Columbians of sense it will be
satisfactory to know that the offer has
fallen as flat as a pancake. Scarcely
a paper of any ropntatiou iu Eastern
Cauada has paid it the compliment
of editorial mention, unless to laugh
at it. English papers that are quick
to take up matters of Imperial interest
that originate in the colonies have
been Bilent on this one; if they had
not beeu, the cable would bavejinform
ed us long ere this. What a disappointment this must be to Ministers!
Whon they gavo birth to the offer and
wired it off to Ottawa, they quite expected the whole civilized world would
be talkiug next morning of the enlightened and enterprising statesmen
who havo tho management of publio
affairs in British Columbia. And iu -
stead of that, their magnificent proposal is received in dead silence. No
one talks about it, or if mentioned at
all it is to express as politely as possible the writer's amazement at the stupendous folly of it. At home even
tho Goyemiueut papers away from the
Coast speak of it with ridicule. As
an example of their criticism we quote
a sentence from The Kooteuay Mail,
Revalstoko:     "Wo      think,      though
such numbers as we havo mentioned is
another question, and   it   is  one   that
should   begin   to   ongago   tho   serious
attention   of   Canadians.    If they cannot be absorbed thero is  great  danger
' of transforming iho   Northwest into a
Russian province, so far  as   manners,
customs, and   enterprise go,    And   we
doubt   if   the   Canadian    peoplo    aro
, prepared to regard lhat   prospect   with
'��� nny sort   of   patience  or   satisfaction.
j It is  oasy to   handle one Galioian, or
one thousand ; but when   they settle in
tens of thousands the  country   is  apt
to become Galioian, not, Canadian.    It
may be well enough to gather in a certain proportion   of   these strango people,   for  the   country    is   large,   and
thero is room   to   put off  the old   and
take on the   now ; but   when that pro-
portiou begins   to exceed onr own people, whom we ilesiro to see remain the
dominant   and   influential  raco,    it is
timo to  consider    whether  the   gates
should uot bo shut until we have made
Canadians of those  already in.    Whether that time  is   arrived   The  Miner
would uot like to say, bat these wholesale importations  give one the uncomfortable feeling that it has. There will
be a sensible iucrcaso to the representation of the Northwest  after the   uext
consus, and   Canadian   do not care   to
see either political party in their House
of Parliament   put   at   the  mercy   of
Doukhobors and   Galicians or of members elected bv them.
A visit from the North Dakota editors is not yet assured, and may n it
materialize; but there is little doubt
that a large company of Eastern Cauad-
ian uewspaper mtn will be in Nelson
some time in August. They start on
tho 1st of that month, and come
through to the Coast on the main line
of the C. P. R, and will return via
Nelson and the Crow's Nest. The
Railway Company, it is said, are
desirous that the country should be
thoroughly seen, and aro arranging for
such stop-overs and side trips as may
be. nocessary for this purpose. Unless
tbo Council sbull provide for an increase of tho polico force, it is to bo
hoped that in arranging stop ovors the
railway authorities will havo the
goodness to omit Nelson.
CURIOSITIES OF TRAVEL.
What Peoplo   Loavc   Behind   Then in
Traius.
The annual clearance sale of unclaimed property left in tho railway carriages
aud at the luggage offices of the Londou and South Western Railway Company was held May 2 at tho Stores do
I pertinent, V andsworth
greatly sympathizing with the need of      The variety of the unclaimed article*
was astonishing but   umbrellas, walk
an all British cable, and realising
what it would do to promote Oriental
aud Australasiau trade connection (for
Canada', that if the Government of
British Columbia, this financially
embarrassed Government, can lay
hands on a cool million anywhere,
from the point of view of investment
a better speculative use can bo found
for it in opening our interior mining
camps in a workmauliko manner."
So say all of us who are still in possession of our senses.
TIME TO CALL A HALT.
Four traiu loads of Doukhobors,
ubout fifteen hundred in all, have jest
arrived at Winnipeg. A party of
four hundred Galicians landed in thai
City about tho same time, Hero in
one day is an extremely foreign
addition of nearly two thousand
souls to tho scant population of the
Northwest, for it is not intended to
seud them beyond Manitoba aud the
Territories. Of Doukhobors some four
or live thousand had preceded this consignment. Last yoar the uumber of
Galioiaus who settled in the North
wost was 0,600, and tho provious yoar
tbey numbered 4,300. This year the
total Galician arrivals foot up nearly
or quite 2,000. Tho Monnouites wo
already had; also Mormons. Ro-
cent additions to theso varieties, and
in vory considerable numbers, are
Finns, Ruthenians, and othor strange
people. But of Doukhobors alone
thore aro now about 0,000, and of Galicians 12,000. Theso ligures suggest
if it is not about time to consider
whether the Immigration Department
should not call a halt in its effort to
peoplo the Northwest with the Hikings
of Europo.
Some of these people are very desirable iu thoinHelves. Tho Doukhobors
are rnthor a Cue race, moral, industrious, uud frugal. Testimony as to tho
Galioians varies greatly, but tho
weight of it is certaiuly agaiust thein.
Their morality is good enough of its
kind, but the kind is uot exactly
suited to the ideas of the English-
speaking race.   They  are  inclined to
ing sticks and sunshades,of course predominated. Abont 2,000 umbrellas
were put up to auction in lots of 12,
is and 24, the aveiago price realised
appearing to work out at about four
pence per umbrella. Handbags, portmanteaus and travelling trunks to the
number of many hundreds wero sold.
and tho articles of personal attire loft
behind on tho railway aud .-old yesterday were almost moredibly numerous.
Gloves wero sold by the basketful,
tics and collars liy tho hundreds,
mackintoshes by tho score and capes,
wraps, and boas in all kinds of material figured among tho lots. Perhaps
tho best indication of tho variegated
nature of the articles that came under
the hammer is afforded by an enumeration of certain items taken from the
catalogue.
The following wero among the moro
curious of the lots soli ; 130 purses in a
basket, HO tobacco pouches, 1B0 pipes,
Hi pairs of spectacles in cases, 33 pairs
of scissors, nine pairs curling tongs,
five spirit flasks, live nielodeons, three
sewing machines, seven sets of false
teeth, three oil paintings, three cameras, nine pairs of Wellington hoots, a
set of harness, two silver mounted
crops, a double barrelled gun, eight
BSSflgnis and African sticks mid "a
quantity of useful articles iu a basket."

gone through and they uro now ready
for submission to the people. The
meeting yesterday afteroon, though
very neoesBary wus. to far uh tbo by-
laws woro oonoerned, purely formal.
Tbe City solicitor, bis partner, and
Mr. W, A. Maodonald worn busily engaged up to the lust moment iu making the nnoessary verbal alterations
ami corrections, but at lust thoy were
ready for a third reading,
Tbo Gus und Coke bylaw was taken
first, and wns duly read n third time
without u dissenting voice. Later on
tbe Street Railway by-law wns siuii
larly treated. Both by laws wero rend
a third time by title, us all diffe'retiees
had boon previously arranged, and the
lawyers had carefully soanned tbo ilo< -
omenta for verbal mistakes. Foi r
other bylaws worn also road a third
time yesterday Aid, Thomson proposed
the third reading of Bylaw No. SO to
raise Siii.OtiO for eleotrio light purposes,
Aid. Fletcher No. *i8 which authorise the raising of $16,000 for Bewage,

suitable public buildings, Bylaw No.

streets of Nelson also 'recoived its first
reading. All these six by-laws will be
submitted to the peoplo simultaneously.
The polling day wus fixed for Monday, Mny 39th, and Mr. E. A. Crense
will be th i returning o:ticor in tbe
west ward, and Mr. J, K. Straohan
hi tho oust ward. Tbe polling station
in the west ward will bo Mr. A. H.
Kelly's offloe, and in the oust ward
tbe Oity Hall. It. was also decided to
publish tbo bylaws in the threo papers of tbis City.
The Council also decided to cull for
tenders for tho grading of a bluff on-
Poplar street and tho laying of a sidewalk down to the sampling works.
An application was also rend from
Mr. E. O. Traves who desired to build
an addition ou to the rear of Broken
Hill blook Tho addition would be a
one story building with a corrugated
iron roof and walls and was suid to
face ou the alloy.
In tho discussion which ensued Aid.
Thomson deprecated anything appoacb-
iug to infringing on tho Fire Limit by.
law, as likely to cause great trouble. It
was thou resolved that "the Fire Wardens bo instructed to strictly enforce
the spirit and intoutious of the Fire
Limit by-law."
Talking of the new cycle path, the
City engineer, in answer to questions,
stilted that the path need not be more
than four foot wide, nnd that rhe
bridges would be few and short, and
altogether that the path would not be
expensive On motion of Aid. Kirkpatrick, seconded by Aid. Beer, it was
resolved that "tho Oity engineer he
authorized to lay the proposed bicycle
track to tho oust of the City, and that
the work bo dono by rlav labor."
A largely signed petition was beforo
the Council praying for somo action to
be taken towardH the removal of the
Hamilton Powder Company's powder
magazine from its present position on
the shore of tho lake opposite the
town. The petitioners consideied
its proximity u menace to tho safety
of the town. It was decided to for-
ward tbo petition to tho Provincial
Government with a request thnt thoy

CYCLE PATH IS STARTED,
Lino of the Proposed linn   Staked Out
Yesterday.
No time is being lost in commencing
oonstruotion of the oyole path which
will run to Roberts' ran oh, ubout five
miles from the Oity, Yesterday Oity
Engineer McCulloch, Dr. Doolittle
and Dr. Arthur started ont and went
over the ground that will soon be
given up to the silent sleed. Stakes
were driven anil everything put, in
preparation for Immediate construction. The path will provide n very
pretty run. Whore it is possible tho
road will be put in good shape for
wheels leaving the money to ho spent
only where grading nnd bridging is to
be done, This will provide the greatest distance for the least money. Mr.
William Roberta, of Roberts' ranch
where is situated the popular Florence
Park Hotel will do $60 worth of work
on bis cud of the rond, this lengthening it somewhat beyond the distance
already provided for. Subsorintion lists
have been placed iu several business
houses and they nro being well signed.
Ir is expeoted that a large amount of
money will he raise I iu this way to
increase the length nnd qn.-ility of the
road, Not only thoso who are fond of
cycling or who intend to ride should
contribute to this fond. The value of
such a path to Nelson is considerable.

Mr. Lning's houso on Carbonate streets

A verv pretty littlo wedding was celebrated yesterday evening, whon Mr.

Miss Bertha Ramsey, of Toionto wore
united in the happy bonds of matrimony by the Rov. O. W. Rose. The
brido attired in white and attended by

groomsman. The young ooople will
reside in Nolson.
A subscription list bas been opened
in aid of tbe Nelson Lacrosse Club,
the object being to raise sullicient
funds to nut the clnh on a substantial
financial basis, so that a proper supply of suits, sticks and other requisites
may be obtained, and also that tho

Elsewhere will bo observed an
announcement that ten of the chief mining oompanies operating in the Nelson
Division hnve decided to reduce the

$8.60 per day to $8 as a result of the
reduotion by tho legislature of the
hours of work udergroud from ten to

COMMUNICATIONS.
HUME AND   THK WHARF.
Sir :-~Pnor to Hon. .7. Fred Hume's
departure for Victoria it might be as
well to again draw his attention to the
disreputable and nnsufe stato of the
Nelson wharf whioh is under the control of tho Government, It is utterly
inadequate and absolutely unsafe for
public use and bofore any proposals
are made for tho City to tako it over,
it is the duty of the Government to
put it  in proper repair.
The late Government was accused of
being unfair to Kootonay in tho way
of public expenditure, Comparisons
are odious, but tbe old regime was
preferable to the present penurious policy of wasteful inactivity aud indecision.
Let us hopo that the Hon. ,T. Fred
Hume will demonstrate to tbo public
that he really has snllieiont weight
with the executive council to cho.ik
Mr. Cotton's financial fandangoes in
the way of tho million dollar vote to
the Pacific cable, etc., and bring him
down to a practical level headed expenditure of money m roads and trails
to open up Kootenny. and more particularly to expend a sullicient sum to
place Ihe Nelson wharf in proper condition for the use of the Nelson publio,
whose presonal property tax paid to
the Provincial Government amounts to
more than Kossland, Sandon and
Kaslo combined.    Yours truly,

Tho Toronto Mail aud Empire of
May 11:
Cno of the most important miniug
deals recently made iu Toronto was
closed yesterday,whereby a strong syndicate headed by Mr. William Mackenzie, president of tlie Toronto Kail-
way Company, secured a vory large
block of stock in tho Gold Hills Exploration aud Development Company.
The deal, however, implies more than
the mere purchase of the stock by the
Mackenzie syndicate, for coupled with
it is the announcement that the syndicate will take au active interest 111
the development of the company's
property, having a representative of
their iutorost ou the Board of Direc t-
ors. The money involved iu the transaction has boen duly paid into tho
treasury, aud the eompauy will now
enter without delay upon the extensive
development work which has beeu
for some time in contemplation.
A Mail aud Empire reporter yesterday interviewed a director of tho eompauy with reference to the deal. He
confirmed the statement that Mr.
Mackenzie aud his friends had entered
tho company, aud intimated that active work on the Gertrude miue, iu thu
Duucau-Lardo country, would coni-
mouco at once. "Tho proposition."
said he, "has been before Mr. Mackenzie for somo mouths, aud ho has thoroughly satisfied himself of its value,
Tho company will immediately commence work on the Gertrude claim,
whore development so far has demonstrated the presence of a stroug vein of
solid galeua ore. Money for tbis purpose has beou already sot aside, aud
the Bhaft will be sunk to the 100-foot
level. This will be done wirhin the
next two months or so, and will prove
tho vein to that depth. The work
will be uudor tho direct supervision
of Mr. J. B. MacArtnur, of Kossland, Mr. Anderson, our superintendent, and of a representative of Mr.
Mackenzie, who will go Wost at once
to look after the progress of the work.
Our Gertrudo assays yield so far an
average of about }60 in silver, with
gold iu paying quantities, aud a
small percentage of copper, aud we
expect these figures will be largely increased when we tax the vein at
depth. We are certain to have at least
one railway, and probably two, into
the district, as the O. P. R. force is
now working north from Argenta,
while tne Great Northern are also
hustling to get iu. With the trausport-
ation problem thus solved, we expect
to make of the Gertrude a shipping
mine this summer."
"Has the company any other development work in view.'"
"Yes. The Trilby group of five
claims, in tho Duucau-Lardo country,
is al6o to bo worked at once, under a
working bond. This deal has been
concluded, and a force of men will be
put ou without delay. On this
group also the vein is clearly defined,
with solid galena from the grass
rootB. The holders of the bond will
puBh the work vigorously, accortling to
their agreement, and there is no reason
why they should not be shipping this
season.

J. H. Couklin, the well known mining man leaves this moruing for Port
Steele to arrange for starting development work upon tho John L. group
of claims, tho property of the reoontly
organized Tracy Creek Mining Company of tihs city. Mrs. Oonklin will
accompany him aud will remain in tho
camp tbis summer. Mr. Conklin located the .Toha L. group, which com
prises the Jehu L., the J. H. C., and
Heartwell claims.
"We   have   a   great    vein   on   the
group," he said. "It crops 40 feet wide
on tho hillide, and   there is 10 feet  of
ore witli a   foot of  solid gray   copper
coming to tho surface.    What little development has   been   done shows that
this paystreak   will  rapidly   widen as
we gain in   depth.    We shall   be  able
to develop the group   most cheaply by
means of a tunnel   following  the  oro
from the   start.    This   will   give    us
good depth and thero will be   no  dead
work.    Every foot will be proving the
value of   the  property.   Unless  I am
greatly   deceived    iu that  groun,   we
have some big news for you before the
summer  is  over.    That    is  to   be  a
great mining   country.    Thore   is  an
unequalled   mineral   belt   in   the dis-
riots around   Fort  Steele,  and sine-
transportation has come in the country

Graud Porks, B, O. May 15.���Wheu
J. P. Graves yesterday atturnoon made
the public announcement yesterday
afternoon that the Granny Consolidated Miniug St Smelting Oompany
has deoided to looate a smelter here
the inhabitants fairly wont wild with
joy. Por weeks past tho matter huug
111 the balanco as other points offered
advantages which could not bo Ignored. Consequently the long pont up exoitement found a safety valve 111 u joyous celebration. Even the most staid
I'ilizons participated. The town after
nightfall Rave itself forth to having
"a hot time,"
,| Tho entire population of nearly 1,200
thronged the streets along which blazed
hugh bonfires. It seemed ns though
Bedlam had broke loose. Bells set up
a joyous peal, whistles blow, tin cans
rattled in tho hands of small hoys,
while giant powder freely distributed
to miners boomed forth a salute from
the surrouding mountain tops.. It
was long aftor midnight before tho col-
obratiou terminated. Work ou tho
smelter is expeoted will be commenced
within 80 days. Tho final contracts
wero signed yesterday. All that remains to be dono to perfect tbo agreement is tho cousout of tho oity to guarantee the oompany against any future
damages by flooding of lauds by
damming up the North Pork of Kettle
river. Tho obstacle will be overcome
this week.
The smelter which will employ 200
bauds will bo in operation lato in the
fall. It will have a capacity of 500
tons daily withjn-ovision to onlarge to
a capacity of 1100 tons daily. Mr.
Gravos has already asked looul brick
plants and sawmill owners to teudor
for the supply of brick nud lumber,
'rho smelter will bo located one mile
from the city on a high bench on the
north side of tho North Pork of the
Kettle River. Power will be obtained
by damming the river at a narrow
cauyou a mile above. Tbo water will
be conveyed 111 a flume to the power
plant alongside the river whence power
will be convoyod by n wire cable to
tbe smelter.
Tlio building will include a main
blast furnace, a main blower, a macbino repair shop, a blacksmith shop,
sampliug works and a roaster.
John A. Manly contributed 500 acres
of land to the smelter oompany to secure the location of the plant hero.���
