versy, It, would ofton be hind to tell,
no doubt, where disinterested miss
ends mul prejudice begins in the consideration of many of these, hut we
funny there mn few of us who could
truthfully decline that prejudice is
never permitted to intinde itself. Kor
several months _ controversy has been
taging over the Eight-Hour law, and
in taking sides It may be that most of
ns have been influenced, perhaps nn
eonseiotisly, by some local conditions
that hnve appealed nnre or less
Rtrongly to our self-interest. The
Miner can say with truth that it line
endeavored to exclude every consideration except the simple one of fairness
and rtuht, but possibly it. has been
nffectcd by others. The men on the
one. side who hnve welcomed the law
nnd bent all Iheir energies to tbo endeavor to make the most of it for
themselves, nnd the owners on tho
other side who oonoeive themselves in
juted by it, would he more than human il their views were characterised
by absolute impartiality. And it
wiiulil be unite natural if interest 01
prejudice played some part in dividing
lhe r<���-t of US.
But over In London, six thousand
miles away, there can be no little in-
llnuneog or prejudices that operate lo
bias the judgment. It is very rarely
indeed that distance, whether of time
or of longitude, is not n positive advantage ;n reckoning up the real merits
of auy question, We have no donht it
is an advantage in the case of The
Colonial Goldfields Unzette and its
judgment of the Eight-Hour law.
That journal hns been taking occasion to reivew the mining situation in
this Province, and what it says will
command lhe respect of reflecting
men here.    We quote as follows:
"With regard to the British Columbian mining Industry, a retrospect of
tlie year's progress is fnr from enooui-
aging. The prospect of a revival of
interest In this industry, among Eng
lish investors has been completely
spoiled by the misehievous legislation
"f the Bemlin liovernment which came
iuto ollice lust year. The Eight-Hour
Labour Law has stirred up discord hetween employers and employed, and in
some    districts,    notably   the   Slocan,
mining operations have been suspended
as a result of   lhe   Act.    The   motives
which prompted the introduction of
this measure nre best known to Mr,
Seniliu and his colleagues, but it is a
notorious fSCl Ihat there wus no demand for legislative interference hetween the miners and the mining companies, und ihut the law has worked
untold harm to the mining industry.
Looally it- effects on trade have been
disastrous, and it is Impoelble to estimate the lasting mischief it hns
wrought by shaking the oonfldence of
American, Canadian, and English investors. It is to be hoped that the
law will sunn hu repealed, and that |
capital nnd labour will Ottoe more hoi
uble to woik in harmony, The Alien
Law wa- oonoelved In a dog-in-the-
manger spirit, nud hns not only in-
dieted n severe blow to tbe trade of
"Victoria and Vancouver, but has
greatly retarded the development of
tbe Atlin goldfields. Incidentally,
too, the  measure,   aimed us  it   wus
against Americans, was responsible in
mine degree fnr the unbending attitude of the United States on the Alaska lioondniy   question.    'Let   'em   all
come,' is that best suited to tlm development "f n new mining country, provided that the 'aliens' uio Inw-nhiiiing

While Judge Fnriil wns pctfeclly eii-

therefrom will be readily understo id.
Public interast in the mat'er is rather
diminishing, ns it is generally considered that, no matter what the judge's
decision may lie,there will be no alteration iu the Council as at present
swrii in. While there is no rule on
the Bubjeot, it is the general practice
in such cuses to give the preference to

l hen1 is tin apparent reason why precedent should be departed from in the

Happenings of the Week in
French Chamber.
Frenob Are Delighted With the  Occniia-
tinu of.1 Town iu the _ahanv.--K_-
dak Fiends Beware.
Paris, Jim. Iii.��� Politically the week
has lacked interest,the Chambers were
opened, but thus far their proceedings
have been chiefly formal. Thr nu-
tiouiilist'iii'Pss'hi.istH.in reunnUU' '.tin'
re-eleotion of M. Dencb_nel i" the pres-
idenoy.of theOhiuubt'i- of Deputies ns a
rebuff to the Government because M.
Bilason was the candidate of the ux-
irenie ladicals and the Government
is nothing if not radical. M, Des-
chaiiel, however, lefusetl to consider
himself a party to this spirit and in
his opening speech,warmly commended ns nn appeal for pence and foi the
co-operation of all parties to enhnnnc
the grandeur of France, the periling
disenssion in the Chamber of Deputies
of the Government's acti-'ii In the
conspiracy trial.
The Colonial party is intensely pleased at the news of the French occupation of Thcossis, Insalah, In tho Sahara, on tha southwestern Algerian
frontier. The French have long complained that Insalah was the centre
from which the Touareg Aiabs raided
oaravani and Algerian villages, while
the massacre of more than one Sauarau
mission was organized thorn. The
ouly question is whether Marocco will
acquiesce in the occupation which the
press wishes tbo French Governmeut
to maintain. The occupation party
���was attacked outside Insalah but do-
liated the assailants with heavy loss.
The Government has not quite settled
thu details of its naval reconstruction
programme, but only another council
is probably needed before the bill svill
be submitted to the chambers.
M. Lockroy, former minister of marine, intends to submits counter pro-
Position to the chambers demanding
thnt 4ilii.(i()0,(Jii() francs be spent, not on
big Ironclads, as the Government proposes, but on tlm contsiuction of fust
cruisers, which could prey on Great
Britain's commerce" in the event of
Asa nsnltoftha Successful experi���
nieiits with carrier pigeons, on board
the French trans Atlantic line, tbe
Minister of Marine,M, de Lnnssen, has
asked the company to furnish plaas
in order to carry out tests during the
mining naval manoeuvres in the channel. An endeavor will be made to
keep tbe squadron in cnmniunication
by special pigeon service, Tbe company say that out of experiments nn ill
voyages, only one  proved n fuilure.
The amateur photographers visiting
tho exposition will meet with obstacles
to the freedom of "snapping" enjoyed
in the United StnteH and Canada. In
order to take a camera inside tbe
grounds a permit is necessary ami only
buildings and groups nan be taken
Shots at individual exhibits will be
many different ways, lhe humorous
tests were runnier than ever and
many people in the audience laughed
until they were sick The dog tight,
over which the subjects heoame frantically excited, was uproariously comical aa were also the rowing race and
circus. When one of the contestants
in the race fell out of his wash tub,
which he thought was a shell, several
spectators leap 3d overboard from the
deck of a steamer, (chairs) and swam
to the middle of tbe stago to rescue
him. In the circus scene one of the
subjects mounted a table and gave a
wonderful exhibition of bare-hank rid
ing. On account "f iho cancellation of
this -week's dales Mr, MiKwen will
appear tit the Opera House on Monday.
Tuesday and Wednesday nights and
when it is said thai the entertain'
meats will bo np to the standard already achieved, nothing need be added,   Tomorrow morning a subject will
be put to sleep ill DesHrisay's window
nud will be awakened at the Opera

About ZOO of the contingent are enrolled in the permanent military force of
the Dominion, where the system ot
national defence is a combination of
the British Militia and volunteers,
ouly more so. Every man who joins
the Canadian militia has to learn his
business during three months of hard,
practical training; then liegetsacei-
tilienin ul competency, and drops buck

Rifle shouting is encouraged with a
