was not called for at the time, and
the manner of its introduction was calculated to create disturbance. As a
matter of fact it did create and is
still creating a great deal of disturbance. Thut might hnve been avoided.
In the first place tho Governmeut and

eutertain tbe proposal of such a law
until there was unmistakable evidence
that the demand for it wus general.
There was uo such evideuce. The demand wuh confined to Rossland, and
to a few busybodies and agitators
even thore. In the estimation of Tho
Record and a few others, Rossland
may comprise the earth, but if does
not; it does not comprise more than
a vory small comer of the one Provinco of British Oolumbla.

in numbers that have never before
been eoualled. But whether at home,
or in a neighboring town, the citizens
of Nelson, if not audibly with the
voice, with heart at least sing the
grand old hymn of loyalty and devotion, "God Save the Queen. "
Alderman Fletcher was quite right
in saying tbat members of a Conncil
must not resign their trust or responsibility merely because they cannot have
their own way in everything. The
public business could never be transacted it this were to become the rule.
Men who ure elected to representative
positions nre expected to do the best
they can, aud if thoy fail in one thing
to address themselves even more resolutely to uuother. That is the proper
rule, no doubt, and to break uwny
from it at every reverse is to exhibit
mere pettishness of disposition.
Where Mr. E/etchg*f twus wrong was
in bis*.application of it. Mr. Beer
could hardly continue in tho position
of Chairman of Finance, nf ta; the uc -
tion of the Council on Monday night,
and at the same time retain his own
self-respect. That aotioo was a positive, and under the circumstances an
irritating and offensive, declaration
of the Council that it no longer hud
confidence in himself or the committee
that had eleoted him chairman. He
���would havo wanted very seriously in
that personal spirit which gives value
to our publio men if he had failed to
resent the indignity put upon him, by
resigning his responsibility as financial adviser to the Council. While Mr.
Fletcher's rule, therefore, is sound
enough in Its gonoral application, it is
not without its exceptions, and we
believe the better sentiment of the
City will be that this iucident of the
bank account affords a very clear exception in Mr. Beer's caBO.
The Miner would be glad if t'*ero
could be any explonation or review
that would permit Mr. Beer to rocon-
sider his detorminutiou, for like all
others who have closely followed tbe
proceedings of the present Conncil it
is persuaded tho City will lose most
valuablo services should he persist "l
withdrawing from active participa^ou
in the work of the Financo Oommittee. But if ho cannot see his way to
this, we bolievo he will drop out wil'i
the sympathy and upprovul of tho better class of ratepayers. A more extraordinary proceeding than tho conduct
of the Council in connection witb the
bank account it would bo impossible to
cite, if the municipal annals of the
entlro Dominion were searched for it.
nation, and it is only fair the mine
owners should bo given a reasonable
time to adjust themselves to it.
The Rossland Reoord says The Miner
was the first to oondemn the eisht-
hour law, and the first to counsel the
mine owners not to obey it. Short as
it is, the statement contains two errors. The Miner was not the tint to
condemn the eight-hour law. It has
never condemned it, and does not
now. The Miuer, unlike The Record,
does not profess to know the conditions that should govorn in tho working of mines or that should regulate
the relations which subsist or should
subsist between employers and employed. Thoso aro matters whioh pertain to the businoss of others, and The
Miner has its time fully occupied in
attending to its own. What it did
oondemn and does oondemn is the
manner in whioh   the  law -was Intro-
The Redistribution Bill is what
everybody expected, a gerrymander.
Not a gro;;s und palpable gerrymander like that of JbS2, however. There
is tho excuse for it that the original
gerrymander had to be undone and
tbe wrong of it put right. But as
The Miner long ago pointed out, nn
arrangement of constituencies of seventeen years' standing cannot be disturbed without tbe violence tbat
characterised the first gerrymander,
That occasion is ouly an excuse. By
the present distribution the Government propose, to gain as many seats
fer their party as they olaim to nave
lost through tbe former one. Call it
what tbey will, it Is as much a gerrymander as the other aud the motive of
it is precisely the same. But it is
more thau a gerrymander; it is also
whut might vulgarly be desoribed as
au election dodge. The Government
count on defent in the Senate. They
provide in tho Bill, after declaring
what shall be done, that n cnuiinii-Hi n
of Judges shall lay down the new
boundaries. Defeated in the Senate
they will appeal to the sense of fairness of the country. They are only
righting au old wrong and to prove
their honesty they put the work into
tho hands of Judges. Wha! could be
fairer than that.' Yet that miserable
old Senate defeats the measure. A
Liberal Government and Parliament
arc trying to do the right thing, and
a Tory Senato prevents them. It is
a good cry, and may make votes.

joyable fc'how.
Harry Lindloy had a much better
play to present to theatre goers last
evening than on the previous night,
and as a rosult the performance was
highly creditable and well pleased the
fair sized audience ihat was in attendance, The piece seleoted was "T *e
Wages of Hin," a, powerful drama thai
gave tho members of the company
full scope io display thoir abilities,
Tho drama was a rather sad affair bin
Mr. Lindloy himself infused i>no.*:,li
comedy into it to produce a laugh
evorytiiiio ho opened his mouth so il
was not altogether too sad. Miss
Flint as Until Hope was the lending
oharaoter and sho noted her part in a
manner that hit little to he desired.
Her work wns the bast in the line thnt
bos beou seen in Kelson for many a
day. Miss Beck iu the cockney char-
actor of Mrs. ijlaggs wns capital ami
pleased the audience immensely, bhe
proved herself to bo a first class char
actor actress. Miss Natol us her daughter Juliana, made a very pooeptablero
mantle young lady, Kir. Talbot was
the lending man, Ho ilopieicd lhe part
of the villainous husband in a highly
creditable maimer. In fact he did it
so well that everyone was glad to see
him killed in the last not,. As the
"Hev. Mr. lirand," Mr. Young wus
vory good. Mr. Lindley as "JSiod"
wnsjuot too prominent but lent n welcome touch of comedy to the otherwise
morose story of thu misfortunes ot n
wronged wife. Uu Bedat made a
handsome aud oredltnble' love sick
This evening that charming story of
"Littlo Lord l,,iuiiilleioy" will bo told
by tbo company. If they do as well
ns thoy did last evening tbe performance will certainly be well worth witnessing, Littlo Miss Ethel Lindley
will appear in tbe title role, a pint in
which sha has long since proved herself most effloient.

u suit which is of some importance
and has attracted considerable attention. Tbe plaintiff was suiim for $185,
tho amount remaining due liiui nn tbe

claimed for damages for 'd-murraee
ut the rate of #10 a ilny for 60 days,
or alternatively for th * amount of rent
they lost by the building not being
eompleti d on time. The plaintiff in
rebuttal put in evidence to buow that
the delay, if nny, was caused by the
negligence of the defendants, wbn by
not pushing other work in connection

A NOTICE.   FINEORDEREDCLOTHING Arrived and Open for Inspection
Will Accept Three Dollars
for Eight Hours.
Th** Silver King Miners Will Not Hold
Out for $3*50���The Position Is
Most Satisfactory.
It -was learned in tho City yesterday
on reliable authority that tho minora
engaKOd at the Silver King mino had
made up their minds to accept $3.00
per day for eight-hours work. The
Miner's informant vtas one of the meu
ongaged at tho mine and a member of
the local Miners' Union. Word *was received from Saudon also to the effect
that the men have decided to take $3.00
per day under tbe new conditions.
It appears that the action of the
owners in making public their intentions and clearly presenting their side
of tho case has led the men to view
the matter trom a broad standpoint.
None of the men want a strike and
tho consequent irreparable injury to a
country that is just opening up. They
therefore see that they can serve their
own interests, and also the interests of
the country,by accepting the offer of the
owners and work for $3 a day. This
of course means that there will be no
trouble and that things will go along
as usual. There has been a feeling of
confidence in tho City for the past
few days and the public will be prepared for the above statement which
is just what was expected. It means,
if the statement is borne out by future
events, that the gravest crisis in tlio
history of the Kootenays will be safely

ho can to urge the miners to fight

"has been" out of employment. While
following his profession he became
well qualified as a talker and is using
all tho eloquence that formerly bored
customers to bring on a contest between capital and labor. The better
class of miners repudiate the man in
question and they feel that they would
be better rid of him.
That the local Miners' Union is
disposed to act reasonably regarding
the enforcement of the law was evidenced yesterday when a representative of the Union interviewed several
mine owners in the Oity and told
them the Union was prepared to go into the question with each mine individually. The owners were invited
to make an appointment for a conference at which the whole matter would
be thrashed out quietly before either
side made a move to antagonize the
other. This is another reason for
believing that the threatened enmity
will come to nothing.
A meeting of the new directorate of
the Fern Golc* Mining & Milling Co.
was held here last Monday at which
the following officers were elected :
Mr.George Kydd, President; Mr. F.
W. Peters, Vice President; Mr. R. M.
Brigstooke, Secretary. The other directors of the company are Mr John
Campbell of Nelson, Mr. F. O. Innes
of Spokane and Mr. Phelps Johnson
of Montreal.
Tho head office of this company has
just been changed from Vancouver to
Nelson at the request of the stockholders and the capital has heen increased
by the oreation of 200,000 additional
shares, 100,000 of which was recently
offered to the shareholders at pur (2b
cents). Of this 100,000. there were
79,984 shares taken up, the balance being divided among those shareholders
who applied for any excess stock that
might not have been taken up by those
shareholders to whom it was offered.

As the aunouceuieut Iiiih been made
that the Government of British Columbia purpose torciui! the Amendment
to the Metalliferous Mines Inspection
Act, making eight hours a working
day for those employed underground
in metalliferous mines; Seo. 18.���"No
person shall be employed underground
in any metalliferous mine for more
thau eight hours in every twenty-four
hours;" the undersigned as representing ono of the two parties mainly
affected, consider it advisablo to make
public their views on the situation
created by this uncalled for legislation,
and to indicate what their line of action must inevitably be.
While the undersigned are determined to respect and adhere to tho laws of
tlie Province, it may be pointed out
that this law is far reaching in the
injuries it must inflict upon tho mining interests of the Province, and ou
the amount of wages earnod by the
It means reducing tlio hours of labor
in the mines l'voin 80 hours a day to
111 hours, as many of tho mines aro so
circumstanced that three shifts cannot be worked io advantage. This
means a reduction of 30 per cent in
tlu amount of the production of many
mi es, and a reduction of 20 per cent
iu the development work being carried on in the mines preparing for
production and a reduction in the supplies used in tne mines.
The most nmioable relations existed, and still exist, between tlie em
ployors and employed at the mines.
The men were earning good wages,
equal to any being paid in camps in
the United States, and higher than
those paid in many,and they wero rendering good   services for tliese   wages.
If anv discontent was rife at the existing state of affairs, it was not generally known. It is therefore deeply
to be regretted that the Legislature
has see fit disturb tlio existing harmony, to interfere witli tho crowing
prosperity of the mining districts,
to reduce the wages earning power of
the men employed, and to interfere
with tho free light of'contract hitherto enjoyed.
As to the future, after tho 1st of
June next, at the mines renresented
by the undersigned, the standard rate
of wages that will lie paid to skilled
minors for an eight hours working day
will be three dollars (#3.00), and other
labor will necessarily be also paid for
according to the time worked.

with good paint, but you do not realize the necessity of protecting yourself against poor paint.   It all

other stays on;   one kind soon looks shabby, the other
keeps new.   The kind that holds on strongest, looks new longest, ia

We sell it.
