EIGHT-HOUR LAW
COMES 110
Momentous Period in the
History of Mining.
WILKS IS INTERVIEWED
He Gives the Miners' Side of the tituition
at Length -Mauy Reports and
Humors About.
��� Today is the lir.it of .Time and it
marks the most momentous crisis so
fur reached in the history of British
Colombia mining. The eight-hour law
baa been passed nnd everybody knows
its effect. For tlio first time the miuo
owners ami miners havo been brought
into direct antagonism. Tho wine owners' position has been clearly defined in
Hie past, but tbo minors have been
more reticent. Mr. Wilks, however,
may probably be taken to speak with
authority from tho union miner'point
of view, and a lengthy interview
accorded by him to the Sandon correspondent of the Spokesmau-Keview,
which is re-printed in full below,
may probably bo taken ns accurately
setting forth the stand taken by tlio
minors.
Today is tlio crucial test, though
what will happen today is not accurately known in Nelsou. Several well
defined reports were, however, gleaned
yesterday.    A goiltlomen, in a position
tn be wt'il informed,who returned yes- j
tordiiY from Kaslo informed a Mine'' '
reporter that he had seen a letter from
a prominent Slooau uuue owners stating that it was definitely decided to
close down all tlio Bloea'u mines al (!
o'clock this morning wilh the exception of two. oue of which is the Slo-
������1H1 Stai. it will no feineorbexgd lb.t<.
four mines, the Payne, Kohle Five,
Sovereign nnd Last Chance are already
closed down.
A rumor, traceable to an .authoritative sonroo. was also on the streets to :
tho effect that the miuors at iho ymir
mine intend to come down the hill
this morn in? Mr. J.Roderick Robertson, general manager of the London
& B. C. Uoldtit-lris staled that he knew
nothing of any such intention un the
part of the men, though he added that,
if such was their intention, it did not
follow that tho men would have informed him of tho fact in advance. If
tho men do not quit work, tho mine
will not bo shut down but will be
operated as usual. It was learned from
another credible source that, the Tamarack mine near Ymir will close down
today but it was impossible to verify
this r��port
At such a" time it is but natural that
many rumors   should be afloat, hut allowing for all   exaggerating and there
are several reports on   the   streets  not
mentioned hero, thero seem?   to be  no
doubt that a grave   crisis, ia pending.
Whan tho eight   hour   legislation   became   known,   bad   results   were uro-
dicted and tho Csssnndras of Kootenay
are now being justified.    If the  striko
or lookout or whatever it may be termed continues long   there will result  a
paralysis   of   the     mining   industry,
which will inevitably   react on all do-
iug business   iu tho country, that may
take  long to  recover   from.    Following is Iho interview above referred to:
AT SANDON.
Sandon, May HO.���"I have no hesitation in saying   the Nolsou and   Slocan
miners' nnious will not accept the re-
Ouced scalo of wages, of $!) tor the new
eight'-hour   shift   offered by the mine
owuers."
Thus said James Wilkes, travelling
organizer of thn Western Federation
of Miners for British Columbia nud
the stato of Washington. "Ann tho re-
resnlt will bo a lockout or strike, as
you have a mind to  call it."
Such wns his terse roply to a correspondents' enquiry for somo definite
stntement of what tho miner's unions
were going to do. It wns given just
previous to the organizer leaving on
the noon train today for Whitowator,
where ht weut to form another union.
He will have goon material to work
with, as that camp has ueuily 200
miners, who tonight will meet Mr.
Wilkes and discuss tho eiglC-hour
law, und incidentally tho beuefils of
forming a  union.
This morning Mr.Wilkes wa; a busy
personage at the local union club
rooms attending tn au aceumulalion of
correspondence and receiving tho re
ports of local officers. He cordially received tho correspondent, and talked
frooly on the subject of tho eight-
hour law saying: "lam inclined to
think that the public mind 'a possessed of un exaggerated idea of the seriousness of the preseut situation.
"My impression ib that there will be
no trouble in uny part of the province
excepting possibly Nelson and Slocan
districts and in the latter many mines
will be olosod down for a few
weeks, as they usually do at this season of tho year owing to the dililoulty
encountered by rcaBon of surface water Hooding the mm r workings.
"Tbe proposition of the mine owners of Nelsou aud Slocan to reduoe the
wages to $!l ou the   first of Juno is, in
I my opinion, u most unreasonable  one,
for the reason thnt it is admitted   that
.the men will accomplish more  in proportion   to   the   hours worked   iu  an
'oight-honr   day   than   thoy will in   a
ten-hour day.    It is also a well known
fact that out   of  ten   hours   the  men
wero required to stay   in tho mines in
. the past, prnbnbly less than niue hours
I wero   actually   ?onsumod     in    labor.
This applies particularly to Nelson and
Slocnn,     where  it is   practically   all
mnnunl  labor, vory   few machines being used.
"Further, tho eight-hour work day
will only reduco the working hours of
any mine working two shifts from 1!)
to 18 hours���because under the 10-hour
system, night shifts wore required to
work only nine hours���instead of
from 20 to 10 hours ns is generally supposed.
"Keeping those well known l.nd ad-
niittod facts always in mind is it not
fair aud reasonable to assume that
equally as good results can be achieved
under the eight hour system of the
future as was ever accomplished iu
the past by the 10-hour system? Why
is it that coal miners only work eight
hours iu this ProviuuoV Because as
their managers will tell you, better
and more satisfactory results can be
secured bv the eight-hour system than
by the 10,
"Apart from this, assuming for tho
purpose of discussion, the mine owners
would suffer n slight loss ns a result
of the initintion of this refoim, I am
unwilling to believe that tho mines of
this district, presumably the richest
silver-lead producers of the world, are
operated at such a small margin of
profit that a very material reduction
in wages is necessitated. It is a significant fnct that the entire opposition,
to the eight-hour movement comes
from the communities that have not
given the principle a fair trial, and
on the othor hand those thnt instantly
complied with the law liavenot.nt lenst
to my knowledge, made nny expression
of dissatisfaction at the results
achieved, and in conjnuction with this
tlio fact that tho War Eagle mine at
Rossland, one of the largest employers of labor, uiaunged by J. B. Hastings, known throughout Ihe west ns
tho most successful and prominent
mining man, has adopted the eight
hour prinoiple on thoit own accord,
more than 13 months before the law
required them to do so, is the strongest argument I can submit in support
if our contention.
"I also believe that considerable
opposition to this reform comes from
people who do more mining with
ihe pen thnn with the pick nnd drill,
a .d is in sevjn oases inspired bv po':'-
leal bias and prejudice. It is surpris- !
ing to think thnt so muoh opposition
would be forthcoming to a refoim
which menus so much to the improvement of the laborers of this province
without a corresponding loss to their
employers,
"In my opinion $���!.50 is not too
much pay for good miners iu this
country; neither do I think that good
minors will work for less."
Asked if Jnmos R. Sovereign, the
noted lnhor lender, would come here
to help tho local unions, he replied:
"I do not think it is likely that he will
come here in connection with the
eight-hour law. "
TIip strength of the union is, roughly
as follows: Rossland, 1000; Ymir.
100; Nelson, 200; Sandon and Silver-
ton combined, nearly 500, and the
new union to bo organized tonignt at
Whitewater will probably have 100
members.
"So far as the Silverton and Sane"on
miners are ooncerned, rather than accept $3 for au eight, hour shift, they
will go out on a strike. "
This information was obtained from
ono in a position to know the feeling
in tho "iuncr circles " So far, however, no public statement has been
given out by officers of tho Unions
bore. It would appear the mine owners' association underestimate the
strength of Slocan union. The membership here and at Silverton numbers
oei 480. If a strike is declared it will
probably be a long and bitter one; especially if the mine owners endeavor
to import outside labor as hinted ou
the streets.
It is likely the mines will all be
closed for an indefinite period. Every
day the trains on both the Kaslo & Slooau railway and the O. P. R. are comfortably filled with departing miners.
They probably each have a small
stake and rather than hang round camp
when, a strike is declared, are off to
new f'el Is.    Over 150 have left.
"Both  in Rossland   and   Boundary
I creek onmps I anticipate no trouble, as
I   uurierstand   the   men   will  receive
tho  same   wages    as    heretofore    It
would have been   foolish   not to  have
graspfd   the  opportunity presented us
by tpe last Legislature of  a  reduction
of tho hours   of labor.    Nowhere  else
in tho British empire is there a precedent, ft r 10-hours'   work   by   miners.
This feature   we strongly   placed   before the Minister   of  Mine-.    We also
believe the mines can  stun 1  a  reduction in   tho  hours   of   lnb ir   without
hurting them.    Take Rossi*nd, for instance.   The   employers   of   the  War
Eagle hovs for   some   time woiked   8-
Itonrs at $11.50.     A mau can   aud will
do as mi ch   in   eight hours as   in   10,
and do bis work ]ust as faithfully.
"So for as the local union is concerned >ou can stute it will stand to
igather firm, and willrooeive the moral
; and tliiiinoiftl support of all the other
'unions to win what it deems is justly
duo its members."

The Hague,   May   31.���The  amend
meut of Count N igra, head of the Ital
ian delegation to the peace conference,
to tho Russian arbitration scheme pro-
puses the following articles:
On the event of conflict between two
or more powers, after the failure of all
attempts of conciliation by the means
of indirect negotiations, the contending parties shall be obliged to have
recourso to mediation or arbitration
in the cases indicated by the present
act.
Two, all cases of mediation or arbitration will be rocommoudert by signatory powers but will remain optional.
Three, each of the signatory powers
not involved in the conflict has in all
cases, even during hostilities, the
right to offer tbo contending parties
:ts good offices for mediation, or propose thnt they have recourse to the-
mediation of another power equally
ueutral, or to arbitration. This cannot be considered hy either of the contending narties as an unfriendly act
even in a case where mediation oi arbitration not being obligntory it would
he rejooted.
Four, a demand for offer of media-
lion takes precedence of a proposal for
i arbitration. But arbitration may or |
must be irop'jieil -iccording tr....ircDm-
I oumstauces not only when there is no
demand or offer of medination but ulso
when mediution would have been rejected or would not have led to coucil
mtion,
Five, a proposal of mediation or arbitration uutil loriunlly accepted by nil
the < outending parties, cannot unless
there be a convention to the contrary,
have the effect of interrupting or de
laying impending mobilization or
other prepaiatory measure or military
operations.
Six, recourse to mediatiou  or   arbitration, iu conformity with article one
is onligatoiy in the  cases of,   a blank
space follows the wod, "cases of," t
be filled in by Count   Nigra   later.
Both sessio'is of tbe disarmament
committee met today and, as was anticipated, failed to agree with regard
to tbe quesitou of uew inventions in
arrangements. The drafting committee of the arbitration committee made
some advauce this afternoon.
The American  delegates   submitted
their scheme relating to au arbitration
tribunal.    Tbe   pluu   differs  from tho
British proposal. It provides that each
country shall appoint  a single arbitrator to be selected by the supreme courts
of the signatory powers.   The tribunal
shall have a  permanent  central  soi.t
and be composed of  at  least ii judges,
who shall not be natives or residents of
countries belonging   to the powers  iu
disaccord.    The general expenses, shall
be    shared   proportionately.    Iu     tbe
event   of   new  facts   arising   within
three mouths   of n  decision, the same
tribunal shall hnve power to try  again
thu questions iu dispute; recouise to the
tribunal shall be optional to the signatory   powors.    The   tribunal shall not
take cognizance  of  any dispute   uutil
assured   that    the  parties   ooncerned
will accept its decision.
Tne convention shall come into foroe
and the tribunal to be eitablished
wbeu nine powers eight of whom shall
be European or American, und four of
whom shall be signatories of the declaration of Paris, 1850 snail have advocated the convention.
Apart from the above project the
Americans have proposed a special
scheme of mediation providing that in
the evvent of a difference arising between two powors each shall choose
another power to act as its second.
Tho powers thus selected, shnll do all
they can to reconcile tho opponents.
These seconding powers shnll, even
when war has broken out continue
their efforts with a view" tu ending
hostilities as soon as possible

Victoria,   May    81.��� Details    were
brought by the steamer   Kinsbiumaru,
which arrived this afternoon, of   warlike preparations   in   China   to  resist
the  Italian   ocoupntic n   of   San   Jlun
and probably the further occupation of
Shantung by Germany.    A Pekin correspondent   writes that   Japan is diligently and quietly making war preparations   us   she did four years ago  and
taking   measures   to    strengthen  ber
oiast defeuces, feeling that a war with
Russia iu the near future  is   unavoidable.    Russia is aware of  .Tnpon's  intention to contest  her iu the east  and
fully  recoguizes     the   difficulty    in
which  s war with  Japan would place
her,   especially  us  tbe  Japnese  navy
approaches that of her own in strength
and additional ships  are in  course   of
construction  iu    Europe.   Her  hopes
are, however, that she   will be able to
keep in her own   waters, thus   checking her from playing a game in Koiea,
Siberia or   Northern Manchuria.    She
has also decided to   oppose   any   land
iug of  Japanese   troops   iu Korea   or
China that might strengthen   Japan's
position in the east.

yestorisy by M. Beaupairo aud Herve.
to the  apparent pleasure of tne   audience   who frequently interrupted him.
Maitre Fulatenf then made the  speech
for the defence.    The  court became so
orowded that  the police wero  obliged
to close  the   doors,   whereupon   those
who were shut out began   banging  at
the doors.     During   Maitre Falateuf's

THE ALASKA BOUNDARY.
Negotiations   of   treaties   would  he
next to impossible  if the custom were
adopted   of taking the public into the
confidence  of those who were engaged
in them.    The Commissioners and the
Government who instruct them have a
right to keep their  own oounse).    But
wo   either   kuow   too  much    or  not
enough of the negotiations   looking to
the settlement   of the Alaskan boundary    dispute.    Disclosures   and   hints
more or less authoritative have been proceeding from the three Capitals interested for a week or two past, with the
result that   the   pnblio   mind  on  the
question has been thrown into a condition of confusion.   Sir Wilfrid Laurier
has been making a   statement in   Parliament of which the leadtr of the Op-
postiion is reported to have  said   that
it is a clear exposition of the case as it
now stands. It may be,   but we gather
no   knowledge   of   the  position   from
the r.iport.    All that is   clear is that a
hitch has occurred in the negotiations,
and it seems  to be   due   to   some demand made by   Canada.    That understanding is confirmed from two sources
on the other side.    The New York correspondent of the   London  Times says
the situation has become  almost hopeless   owing   to   the   insistence of  the
Canadian   Commissioners    that    tbis
country   receive   a   slice    of   Alaska.
And about tbe same time the   Associated Press at   Washington   is  sending
out on   what   it declares to be  official
authority a statement of very similar
purport.
According to this statement the negotiations had reached a stage that
promised a settlement. London and
Washington had agreed ou arbitration,
a course which The Miner several
months ago ventured to suggest was
tbe only possible one in dealing with a
matter of that kind. And arbitration
it would have been if Canada had not
interfered with a condition that Pyramid Harbor be conceded to this coun
try, as a preliminary to the submission of the question. Tbis aroused tbe
indignation of the Americans, who refuse the condition and threaten to
withdraw from dbritration. It is
impossible that this can be the whole
truth, but what that whole is we
are left to conjecture. The only thing
clear is that there has been an interruption to the negotiations, aud at
this writing it is not known that they
have teen or will be resumed.
Of course there is something behind.
The posbession of Pyramid Harbor
is a part of the whole question, and
if anything goes to arbitration it must
with the rest. If we can claim Pyramid Harbor we can claim muob
more by the same right or on the same
authority. The Canadian Commissioners have probably offered a trade
of some kind, hy which they hope to
secure an outlet to the Ocean, and
which they are convinced is a reasonable one under the ciemmstances.
That may be; but the United States
is not bonnd to trade off any of its
territory, and Canada has no right to
insist ou the possession of any part of
that iu dispute as a condition to arbitration. From the bald statement
proceeding from Washington the attitude taken by Canada is indefensible,
and up to the present there is nothing
else to gnlde ns in forming a judgment. The United States claims that
the boundary should take a certain
course; the British and Canadian contention is that it shonld take a eeitain
other conrse, Neitbor side is bound
to yield, and only arbitration can decide between them. The Unitod
StateB contention may bo absurd, and
it may be refusing a reasonable offer
with respeot to a portion of the terri
tory in dispute; bnt it is us right to
hold ont, and to insist that the whole
question shell be referred. For Can
ada to say that unless she can get a
slice of that territory, it matters not
how geuerouB the offer for it may be,
she will refuse to assent to arbitration
at all, is to impose an obstacle for
which there can be neither excuse nor
defence. We decline at present to be
lieve that the Canadian Commissioners
have placed the country in that exoeed
ingly dubious position. Whatever the
cause of the interruption, however,
thero would seem to be little donbt
that it has proceeded from Ottawa. It
is hoped Sir Wilfrid Laurier and bis
colleagues fully appreciate tbe responsibility that would rest upon them
if through any action of theirs tbis
wretched Alaska business shonld fail
of settlement.
far, which we are disposed to think is
happening in the case of Toronto. It
will be curious to observe whether The
Free Press will consent to the application of its argument when, after tbe
next census, it shall be discovered that
Winnipeg is entitled to two members
and may be iu danger of not getting
them. It will be hard for onr contemporary to explain why 50,000 people in
Winnipeg should have two members
while the same number in Toronto
are given only one, especially as Wiu-
uiiieg is quite as muoh iu evidence as
Toronto in supplying outside constituencies. Of the seven Manitoba members, that city contributes three. But
the party paper, happily font, is never
troubled with difficulties of this kind.

WALL
PAPER
Right! !
In deciding to call a public meeting
to arrange for the proper celebration
of Dominion Day, it is not intended
to reflect in any way on what has al-
toady been douo or on tbe manner of
doing it. But in a celebration in
which the whole City partakes, and
to which all classes of people are asked
to contribute, it is not nnreasonable
that the conduct of it should be made
as nearly officiul as possible and the responsibility so divided that there
can be no recrimination afterwards. All desire a general, enthusiastic, und successfnl celebration, and
to insure this the preparations should
be made under the authority of a
meeting representing the entire City.

The Jury's Verdict in Regina
vs. Brewster.
BRUNO FREE AT LAST
Two'.Oasts Adjourned Until a Daj Fixed-
Kog. vs. Henager To-Daj- -Caldwell
vs.   Davis Decided.
Thero wns a veiy lmsy day at the
Court House yotstordny nud two eases
wore disposed of, and sovernl others
adjourned to a day lixed. The grand
jury brought in the remainder ot thoir
presentments finding a true bill in
every ense except those of Harvey
Koss, the Cinnamon accused of criminal libel, and A. 0. Ostley, accused of
perjury. The court then proceeded
to the consideration of the other cases.
In the case of Regina vs. Antonio
Bruno, Deputy Attorney General McLean rose and stated that the Crown
had deci.lod to enter a nolle prosequi
for several reasons. To begin with
two former juries had failod to agree
ou the case, nnd also since the last assizes a number of tho crown witnesses
had disporsed, and the Crown consequently were not in a position to pre-
sant ns strong a case as lietore, and so
considered it inadvisable to press the
case further. Bruno's counsel, Mr. R,
M. Macdon.tld, then formally applied
for the prisoner's release, which was
granted, and Bruno, after several
mouths of confinement was a frc-o
man once more.
Tho case of Regina vs. Henager was
adjourned unit! today, anri that of Regina vs  CJuinlan until Saturday.
The nexir case was lhat of Regina vs.
McGinty, who wns licensed of disturbing the pence. MoGinty was oue of
those who tuolj a leading part in running the Chinese out of the Slocan a
few mouths back. He pleaded guilty
and was sentenced to It) days imprisonment. Another iiian arrested at
the snmo time for the same offence
elected for a speedy trial and was
given eight day-: by Judge Fot'in. Ill
delivering sentence Mr. Justice Drake
stated that, in viow of the light sentence imposed by another court for au
identical offense, he prefeired to make
no remarks on the ease.
Th noxt caso was that of Regina vs.'
Brewster which occupied the time of
tho court for the rest of the day. The
prisoner who was formerly C. P. R.
agent at, Trail, was accused of theft
of the company's money and of falsifying and suppressing entries. The total
shortage on the company's hooks
amounted to about $1500, bnt the
charges against the prisoner were confined to amounts of $140 and $100 so
alleged to have been abstracted in February last. The prisoner went into
the box to give evidence on his own
behalf, aud acknowledged that he had
rocoived one of the amounts, but swore
that he had not kept it but bad devoted it to covering the shortage of
his subordinate, Sinclair, who is about
to be tried on a similar charge. It
was developed during tbo trial that
Sinclair's shortage at the end of last
year amounted to something over $600.
In charging tho jury his lordship
put three questions to the jury in
each oount.
They had to decide whether ho had
received tho money, whether ho had
made (or permitted to be made) false
entries, aud whether he had appropriated tho money to his own use. The
jury wore out foi two hours, and on
their return announced that they answered the first two questions in the
affirmative, but were uunblo to agree
ns to whether or not the prisoner had
stolen the money.
George Stanley was foreman of the
jury and the other jurors were C. J.
Wilson, R. Ince. D. Morris, S. Neel-
ands, G. O. O'Driseoll, W. H. Wallace, E. P. Whalloy, T. Lillie, O.
D. j. Christie, G. A. Huuter, aud G.
V. Steele.
Tho first case this morning is Reginn
vs. Henager. The prisoner ii accused
of incest.
JUDGMENT CONFIRMED.
Mr. J. H. Bowos,   solicitor   for  the
Hall Mines Limited, yesterday receiv
ed notice that   the Chief   Justice   has
confirmed   his   judgment in   favor  of
the defendant in tho enso of  Caldwell
vs. Davis,where the plaintiff sought to
oust   the   defondent   from   a   mineral
claim on   the ground of lapse ot   title,
Tho  ease   was   lolly reported at   the
time in The Miner, and it. will he  ro-
membere 1   that the claim in  question
was workod as a lime quarry.    It  was
proved   that   more than enough   work
had been   done on tho property which
had been continuously   operated,    and
his   lordship   decided   that   the  mere
failure to record the work in time was
not sufficient to cause a lapse of   title.
He desired, however, further evidence
proving that   the work  had been done
within tho boundaries   of  tho   claim.
This     has   been   supplied   and  judgment in favor of the defendant followed though   without   costs.    It  is  understood the case will he appealed.
The claim was staked as a minoral
olaim, and ns lime has since been declared bv the Supreme Court not to bo
a mineral within tho meaning of the
Act, it would appear to the ordinary
layman that the ground in qnostiou
belongs to neither of the contestants,
nnd as no costs have been granted, it
is difficult to seo what they are going
on fighting about.
tn the largest houso of the engagement
thus far. The piece was "Only a
Country Girl," described on tho play
"ill as "a beautiful rural picture,"
It was certainly a beautiful picture as
protrayed by the clever people who
i ompose the company. The three plays
produced this week have been very
imi'b alike as all of them dealt with
the separat in i of husband and wife.
Last night's however, wns tho smoothest porformanoe thus far. Miss Ohoato

is a very clever actress aud her work
Inst evening stamped her as head and
shoulder above any other lady artist
that has yet visited Nelson. Miss
Hermann and Miss Stonier had cou-
iienial parts and bandied them in a
capable manner. Mr. Waldrou left
nothing to be desirod in his work ns
"Jack Gordon." and was more pleasing than in either of the two previouB
plays. Mr. Kelly was a cnpital old
man and showed that it is not only iu
comedy that he is clever. Mr. Freder- j
icks as the eccentric professor was good
and the hits taken hv the o'her gentlemen were well hnudlod.
Tho spooinltios  wore tho  best of the
week.    Mr.   Fulton's sweot voice was
appoint oommittecB for the approaching Dominion Day celebration. Tbe
reason for this is that many think that
the big celebration should lie officially
recognized and sanctioned by the City.
Right Rev. Bishop A. Donteuwill
who was expected here for Sunday,
has been compelled to postpone bis
visit to Nelson indefinitely, on account
of the dying condition of Bishop Dur-
ien of New Westminster.
The Nelson base ball tram will prob-
ahly go over to Rossland on Sund'jy,
and it is probable thnt their postponed
match against the team that beat Kaslo will take place here on Friday.
Considerable iutorest is hoing taken in
both eveuts.
The present system of transferring
passengers from oue steamer to another

and Nelson is rather inoouvenieut. ow-

SNOW      AND
MUD
SLIDES.
Damage Caused in   Various   Parts  of
the Kootonays.
The continued rains havo caused
mud and snow slides throughout
British Columbia which hnve done a
great deal of damage,although nothing
iiko ns much ns expected in some
parts.
Along tho line of tho Crow's Nest
Pass Railway, the 0. P, R. have boon
the principal sufforers, although the
inconvenience to passengers from delays
has boon considerable, but as the snow
aud mud are beyond human control
no one oan be blamed for the company
has certainly labored hard to keep the
road free.
In the Slocan country bridges have
hten washed out, and parts of wagon
roads and trails swept out. Last week
a slide came down on the old wagon
road from Sandon to New Denver just
as a party of lalies and gentlemen
were returning from New Denver. A
liorso was killed bnt none ot the party
wore injured,although it took the paity
over three hours digging to got past
the slido. Between Cody and Sandon
tho slides havo so injured tho road that
it is bard to make a passage for horses,
and unless something is done the road
will soon bo entirely impassable.
Tho bridge crossing Tributary creek,
on the wagon road between the Wonderful mine aud Sandon was completely wiped out last week by a slide.
no accommodation for them and no
place to sit down. The deficiencies
of the court house havo been frequently
pointed out, and it is said the building may be enlarged somo time in tl.o
future. In the meantime groat inconvenience is being felt. It has been
suggested thnt as Iho oourt house is
too small,a room might be tenipornrilj
engaged near hy for the aceomm.idation
of the jurors, if it is to be necessary to
keep them hanging about the court
house for hours nt a time.

Mr. Ernest Mansfield engineer of the

morning on a flying visit to London

spending four weeks travelling and one
week eaoh at London and Paris. Mr.
Mansfield has had the eight hour principle in force ever since he commenced
to work the Joker and is one of tbe
few mine owners who believe in the
law. He thinks the difficulty will be
gotten over by the cost of living being
reduced sn that the men will accept $1!
for eight hours' work. Mr. Mansfield's
visit to Eurpe may have developments
that will be important to British Columbia.

Ymir, B. 0., May 29.���A further
carload of concentrates from tho Ymir
mines leaves today says the Spokesman-Review, making the total shipped
during the past week about H6 tons,
representing an amount crushed of 550
tons.
A good strike has beon made on the
Fourth of July claim adjoining the
Wilson mine. The vein uncovered is
four feet wide and consists of a solid
l.ndy ot galena and decomposed iron
pyrites.
t, On the Wilcox mine, operated by the
Broken Hill Mining and Development
Oompany, work is being concentrated
on a raise between No. 8 and No. 2
tunnels. This raise will be about 100
feet and as soon as it is completed.
.sloping operations will be coommenc-
ed. People here nre in some little
doubt ns to what is going to happen on
the first of June with regard to the
new eight-hour law. The Ymir mine
nnd many ot the other mines iu tbe
vicinity have posted notices to the
effect that on the first day of June
wages will be reduoed to $8 per day of
eight hours while on the other band
the miners, who nearly all belong to
the Ymir Miners' Union have signified
their intention of holding out firmly
f jr |8.50 per eight-hour rtay.
The only one of the larger mines to
retain the old rate of pay for the eight
hour shift is the Porto Rico. This
mine which was shut down last fall
through lack of wood to keep the mill
going, makes a start on the 1st of June
and tbe men are to receive {3.50 per
eight-honr day. J. J. MoMullen
who has been in charge of the mine
since the commencement of development, will resume his position and reports that a contract for a large supply
of wood has been let, and that the niiil
will now rnn uninterruptedly.

F1NEORDERED CLOTHING
In spite cf tho depressing effect of
a revival of the eight hour discussion,
and the widespread uncertainty iu
mining circles resulting therefrom,
Now Denver cnmp is showing a decided improvement in many ways. The
properties being opened up close to
town are fast developing into producing mines,and though only small forces
are working now, yet there is every
renflou to believe the forces will bo

I "THE MINER"   ON BAKER STREET, ft
The Miner is in the midst of moving. This number is issued from its new quarters on Baker Street,
between the Imperial Bank and the Lawrence
Hardware Company, where the offices of the paper
will hereafter be located. To-day it is expected the
whole plant will be in running order, and the job
printing, which has of necessity been allowed to stand
for the past couple of days, will be attended to at once.
*  The new premises are commodious, and with extensive ft
$ alterations that are being made to the plant,The Mixer ?
$  will be able to do better work than ever.    The job de- *
I  partment will be the best equipped in the Kootenays. |
S  A trial order will convince you of this.    No job will a
1  be too small, and none too large.    Nelson is going ft
x  ahead rapidly, and The Miner is keeping pace with it. ft

We have a fine assortment of woolens always
on hand. Goods made up at the shortest possible notice. As everything is kept and made
on the premises satisfaction is assured.

ware. For that reason we've planned a Special Sale for Thursday, Friday and Saturday that will emphasize the possibilities of
this store in regard to Tableware.
