THK BIGHT-HOUR   LAW.
The petition of thn Kosslnnd mine-
owners, preseuted to the House two or
three days ago, Is said to have stnR-
tinred 11 majority of the members. 11.
wns nn Influential petition, signed hy
nil the Companies of uny nut 1; operating in that district,twenty foiiv in nil,
und lepresi'iitniR ninny millions of
capital. We do not. know why it surprised the members. The foots relating to the Eight-Hour amendment
were clearly but temperately put. but
there was nothing Hint hnd not been
snid before, Iu the ltossluml camp
operations hnve been curried 011 as usual, hut any one in the least nt-qunint-
eil with the circumstances must bave
known that tho Companies wero not
satisfied with the law and would not
accept it ns irrevocable. Perhaps the
members were under tlie Impression
they would not curry tlicir dissatisfaction to the length of formally protesting against it, and when confronted
with a petition of such influence many
of them realised for the lirst time lhe
exoeediug gravity of the situation.
The petition is mi admirable presentation of tbe not unl position of
things resulting from tlie legislation
of lust session. It was not known thnt
any one had sought suih legislation,
Thn owners burl not, 1101 had the miners.  Why such a law should   have been
passed under the oiroumstanots is in-
comprehensible, The conditions existing nt the time were, ns fur as known,
entirely satisfactory, nnd the relations
hetweeu the (.wnets and the miners
were of the most pleasant, character.
No year iu the history of the Prov.
ince opened with fairer promise than
did lS'ltl, hut this law spoiled everything. Bad feeling wnR created lie
tween employer and employed, where
harmony bud reigned before; minis
were shut down, and cnpitul, ever
timiil, took flight. There is uo doubt
as to the evils that have resulted I'toin
it.
How can those n.ilq be reinedied.'
The petitioners sisk that the law he
either amended or repealed. Thev
give a reason for some action on the
part of the Legislature that no men
sensible ot their responsibility to the
'���oontry can afford to ignore. Many uf
the mines of thu Kooteiinys, my   these
petitioners,  oannol  be operated nt  a
profit as long as this luw is in foree.
The owners must either ilose down or
reduce wages.    They  cannot very well
afford to olosn,   for that would mean
tin- loss uf much capital, and the legislation bus created such a feeling of
strife   that   tlie   miners   will nut now
voluntarily submit to a reduction.
Thoy have put themselves in the bands
of the Union leaders and will abide
the  oonsequences,   Bo far as the man
are Concerned, that wonld appear to be
the situation. Tho whole mutter,
therefore, is thrown linok 1111 lhe l.egis
lntiire. The members must take ne
tion; there is nn escape if thev me not
to sen the mining industry of the
Province overwhelmed in disaster, The
position of things is loo simple tn admit of misunderstanding or misuonoep-
tion.   Ibe industrial situation is lnnl
now ; it will lie worse if nothing be
done to relieve il. Fnr the reason
stated the men will not, miive, therefore the Legislature must. And it rnu
do it with absolute coiilldence of giving satisfaction all uroiind. Although
the men are holding ont, wn believe it
Is ti fnot beyond dispute thai foiu-tiftlis
Of them would glinlly go liiuk to tin-
old conditions. They would rather
work than strike, if left to tnetmselVM
They are anxious   to   earn   the largest
wages chey can get, nni bave no objection to the ten-boui day if tbat
sin mid be n neoeMory condition in at
tuining wind they most desire,    In the
fm e of nil the _iroamgtan.es ihe Legislature-will be guilty of criminal in
difference to the publio good it it refines to ink" such lotion as may he
necessary to restore the harmony  it so
wantonly destroyed nnd niiikn tlieinin
ing industry of the Province onoe more
prosperous.
They are having some difficulty in
the House in properly designating the
Vniu'ouver members. Thero are four
of them, nnd it may be said by the
way that for all the good they are
there might ns well be none. The
rules of the House will not permit n
member to refer to another by name;
it must be by his constituency, A
speaker was referring 10 Mr. Martin
ns the junior member for Vancouver,
when Mr. Cotton corrected bun hy explaining that Mr. Macpberson ranked
first, himself second, Mr.Martin third,
nud Mr, Tisdnll fourth. Mr. Martin,
therofore, is not junior member, T3ut
what is he? II would He inconvenient and altogether too novel to refer to
bun as the member of the third degree. Remembering Dr. McKeohme's
poetry of a day or two before, Colonel
Baker suggested "fallen angel." Bnt
in that enso tin- 'lifliulty would be iu
designating Mr. Cotton.
In respect to Canada's participation
in tho Boer win there is a perceptible
difference between Sir Wilfrid Lnurier
and Mr. Tarte on the one side and the
muss of Canadians on the other. It
was briefly und pointedly expressed by
Mr. Pope, member of Parliament fur
Compton, Province of Quebec in a
speech made the other day. "But tbe
rest of us," he said, "did not hove to
read tho law or lhe constitution, or
anything else, hefore we offered to go
to fight the battles oi the [Umpire."

Nelson's position as  the  undisputed
commercial  und    railroad    centre  of
_0���thein British Columbia is now reo-

,,.,, iu .astern   Canada.    In   addition
t0 her other advantages, Nelson is also
becoming   n   manufacturing   centre,
though of course such industries nre ns
.et it. their infancy in this new coun-
,1V    The most   reoent  move  in   this
rlireotian   is   tho  establishment  ot  a
lor��e powder manufantory hero   Mi.O.

spot opposite five Mite Point. Though
doing a good business Mr.   Griffin  has
been  npornting   on    a  comparatively
small scale, and yesterday  sold out his
business to a   more powerful  concern,
the Ontario Powder  Works  Company,
of Kingston, Ont,    Mr. Daniel Smith,
who bns had 2fl   years  of practical ex-
porience  of  which 14 were   with   the
Hamilton Powder Company,   is mnnn-

Mr. C A. Maopheraon, looks alter the
