On the loop, at one place, there is
what is practically a mountain of soft

The track curves sharply there, and as
two of them,named Thtaie and Lewis,
went around a corner all immense
wave of mud struck them from the upper side of the cut, burying them instantly from tho sight of some horror-
stricken men on the upper track.

MEETING  OF THE INsTIlUrE   OF

Appropriate   Name   Given  to  Fast Express���From Montreal to Vancouver, 100 Hours,
Montreal, May 25.���The new fast service on the O. P. R. will be inaugurated about the middle of Juue, probably the 18th, or 18th. Tho flyer across
tho continent will be called the "Imperial Limited'' and will reduce the
time between Montreal and Vancouver
to about one bundled hours. There
will also be a daily transcontinental
service instituted, owing to the vastly
increasing volume of travel, and
trains will leave on Sundays us well
as on week dnys, this being absolutely
necessitated to relieve the present
heavy traftic on Monday's trains with
travellers from Europe.
The hour ot departure from Montreal
will be 9:80 a. m. and Toronto about
four hours later, and Winnipeg and
iiiauy parts of Manitoba will be
brought within 18 hums of this cilv,
local trains in that Province making
close connection with tho "Imperial
Limited," Vancouver and Victoria
will be reached on the fourth day out
from Montreal.
Tho Kootenay counlry will also be
advantageously affected by the new
service. A fast train on the Crow's
Nest Pass Railway to which a through
sleeper will be attached to Kootenay
Landing, will make this alternate
iiauo co tnesd gym rreias trio snorrest
and quickest one from tho east,
through passengers have a choice of
route to the Pacific coast by the main
lino or by the Crow's Nest Pass
branch, just as they now have tho option of travelling around the north
shoro :if Lake Superior,or by the upper
lake steamships of the c uniinny between Owen Bound aud Port Arthur
and Fort William.
ibis now fast service is to be greatly
supplemented by an increased local
service on different' sections of the line
so that the accelerated speed will be
largely obtained by the reduction of
the number of local steps.

Rear Admiral Sampson was the
guest of honor. Captain Chadwick,
U. S.  A., was also present.
At tho head of the table were an immense British Union Jack ami Ihe
Stars and Stripes, and between these a
portrait of Queen Victoria in her
coronation robes. American and British
Hags were also arranged at the opposite end of the banquet ball. John
Barrett, late United Slates minister tn
Si am, was among the speakers. In
the course of his address, Admiial
Sampson said ;
"The hoinclv proverb, 'Blood is
thinker than water,' appeals to every
man of us here, and its If is an outcome of the good fellowship which
has existed between our naval service
for many years. This year's experiences have made US realize the truth,
and we of England and America feel
as we would have felt pirhaps 12
months ago, tht we are together about
this board members of one great worldwide family, with interests and sympathies In common. (If Ibis I hive
had practical proof many times during
these last mouths, when the ships of
England and Amerioa have met in

made me glad, for it promises to continue for all lime."
The Hague, May 25.���Both sections
of the committee on the laws of warfare of the peace conference met separately today and began the examination of subjects submitted to them; the
Red Cross section discussing paragraph
five and paragraph hix of the circular
of the Count Muravieff, Russian Minister of Foreign Affairs, and the Brussels Conference section disiussing' paragraph seven. Both sections met sub
sequently and discussed the "(Question
of competence as regards the scheme
for the revision of the Geneva Convention known as tho Morguier
scheme. The Morguier scheme comprises modifications of the Geneva Convention in connection wtib wounded
and sick prisoners, members of the
hospitals sorvice, eojveys for the
wounded ambulances, hospitals, properly belonging to neutralised persons,
religions and medical stnffs and kindred subjects. Tho schemes apply
equally to land and sea warfare.
It was proposed to submit this
scheme to another committee for riis
mission and tho question was then
raised whether tho conference was
competent to deal with tho matter.
Those who take   a   negative view
s-J e���t dm    ��    l��� "   "
in principle nnd that all the
ment represented had agr ed that nothing should be submitted t> tho conference beyond the eight points in the
circular of Count Muravieff. They
contend! d that if I bo conference once
infringed this rulo a precedent would
ho created leading to numerous difficulties including possibly the spring op of
the Armenian, Macedonian and similar questions on the conference. It
was also pointed out by the opponents
of the proposal to refer that, inasmuch
as the Morguier scheme dealt mostly
with the wounded and with hospitals.
It would be impossible to discuss
the proposed modifications effectively
without tho co-operation of doctors,
who alone would be capablo of deciding many of the points in issue. As a
matter of fact there is no man of medical training among the delegates.
The committee finally adjourned without reaching a deoision.

| given   by    the     British    ambassadors
and ministers at   all   the leading capitals in Europe in honor of the event.
An interesting feature of the celebration here was the attendance of the
boys of the naval and military schools
at a matinee given by Herbert Beer-
bohm Treo's company at Her Majesty's
theatre, wheio the entire audience
sang the national anthem,to which the
Queen listened bv electrophone at
Windsor castle. Her Majesty telegraphed an expression of her pleasure.
Tho birthday banquet given at the
Hotel Cecil tonight was attended by
members of the American Society at
Loudon. Lord Rosehery, who presided,
referred to the American gnesls as
"representing a great commonwealth
of states once a part of the British empire, but now nearer than any other
country except the colonies." Colonel
Taylor of the society, in responding
for tho Americans paid a tribute to
the Queen, and read telegrams that had
been exchanged with the citizens at
Tampa, Fla.
Hs speech brought nut a furthei response from Lord Rosebtry, after
which the orchestra played "Hail Columbia" amid a lively demonstration.
Her Majo=tv is said to have stood
the fatigue of the day admirably. All
who saw her thought, she looked extremely well. During the performance of "Lohengrin," at Windsor castle this evening, the Queen and Royal
family occupied a dais, behind which
was arranged tiers of souti for the
household. The proscenium was surmounted with the royal coat of arms
and the hangings wero in crimson and

Tho Ymir mino is shut down on account of an accident to the rock orusher,
the concentrates being  shipped steady.
The Bobuu in the Slocau, shipped
20 tos of ore last week. Shipments are
somewhat reduced owing to th,: extensive development in the No 1, and 3
levels.
The great oleotrio hoist to the War
Eagle has been so far a disappointment. Sometimes it works and sometimes it does not. This does not agree
���with economic mining.
The lower lever of the Bonanza at
Bossburg is producing richer lead
ore aud carrying more siver than any
ore heretofore hoisted  out of tho mine.
About 22 tons of ore is being daily
shipped to the smelters.
Many of the less well appointed
mines of Rosslaud are havug the usual
trouble with surface water. The
Houiestuke has found it necessaiy to
put in a now pump, aud Binking has
been temporarily suspended on the Velvet.
#   *   *
Kaslo is just now headquarters for
mine managers and mine speculators.
Special attention is being being accorded to the Lardouu district.
Ore shipments from May 12 to 18,
inclusive, are as undsr:
Payne to Omaha. 023,000 pounds;
Last Chance to Omaha, 80,000 pounds;
Gibson to Kaslo 32,000, Total, 635,-

A NOTICE.
As the annoncement has been made
that the Government of British Columbia purpose toroing the Amendment
to the Metalliferous Mines Inspection
Act, making eight hours a working
day for those employed underground
in metalliferous mines; Sec 13.���"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
affected, consider it advisable 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 the laws of
the Province, it may be pointed out
that this law is far reaching in the
injuries it must inflict upon the mining interests of the Province, and on
the amount of wages earned by the
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
meins a reduction of 20 per cent in
th* amount of the production of many
mi es, aud a reduction of 20 per cent
in the development work being carried on in the mines preparing for
production and a reduction in the supplies used in tne mines.
The most amicable relations existed, and still exist, between the em
ployers 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 were rendering good   services for tnese  wages.
If any discontent was rife at the existing state of affairs, it was not gen
erally 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 wages earning power of
the men employed, and to intorfere
with tho free light of contract hithor-
to enjoyed.
As to tho future, after the 1st of
June next, at the mines renresented
by the undersigned, the standard rate
of wages that will be paid to skilled
miners 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.

Homo people say thai, dm Oounoll Is
going it I1I1111'" in nskilig II 0 raio
payors to vein money lor tho water-
���works systnin. Tho report of Oily
Eugiuoer McOnlloiib, presentoil to the
Oounoll sooio works ugo shows the
contrary lo ho tho otlSO as llin Aider-
moil tun well awnre just whnl tho system roiiiuroH.    The report follows:
The present wntei supply is obtained
from Anderson Creole ai a poinl uonr
the junotiouof the oast ami west forks,
ntilizmg tho whole flow of the oreek.
Since Octobor 181)7, I have mntle rare-
ful gimgiugs of the flow in Anderson
Creek with the following results:
(1.) In tho winter of 1897-08 the
extreme low How was on February I,
amounting to 6(10,000   Rnllons cer day.
(8.) The low WRtor How in tin fall
of 181)8 as mi September is, amounted
to 480,000 gallons per day.
(8.) Tl e low water How during the
past winter was on March 7, amounting to 800,000 gallons per day.
Daring the time of extreme low
water in Anderson Crook in tho beginning of March of this year the sup-
ply was insufficient to meet ordinary
demands-. Had nnl Ihe thaw commenced when it did the question of
water supply would have been a very
serious one.
With tho largeinorease of population
during tlio presunl year ami the consequent lamer consumption of water I
have no hesitation in saving that
with a cold winter, snob, as we have
just had, tho present water supply will
ho totally Inadequate during the coming winter. Ontsirte of Anderson
Crook, Cottonwood Creek is the only
other uvailalo sonroe of supply iiy
gravity. Cottonwood Creek, with the
addition of th ' wafer from Clearwater
and Whitew t v Creeks, which the
City is now diverting into Cottonwood
Creek, will supply nut less than 10,-
000,000 gallons of water per day which
will ho sufficient for a population of
500,000 so that there is no question
whatever as to Cottonwood ('reek being
the proper source of Nelson's future
water supply, Cottonwood Lake also
forming an excellent natural storage
reservoir.
To utilize Cottonwood Crock it will
ho necessary to inn a pipe line from
the corner of Stanley and Latimer
streets, along Mines' Road to Cottonwood Creak to a point about 2,000 feet
above Giveout ('reek, a total distance
of 10,01)0 feet. This pipe liue. I would
reoommnnd, should ho lap welded or
rivet tod mild steel. The size of this
pipe depends on the population it is expedient to provide for; a 13-inoh pipe
will supnlv a population .of 9,000, a
14-inob pipe a population of lii.uOO.
As to the cost of this work it is vary
difficult to figure very closely at the
present time on account of the fluctuations in tlio price of iron. But, assuming wo use a 14-inch pipe. 1 estimate the cost of this pipe line laid
complete 10,000 feet. long, with dam
and necessary gate

ON THE EIGHT-HOUR LAW.
To tho Editor of Tho Miner:
Sir���Few thinking residents of Nelson will fail to   realize that the recent
legislation, affecting tho hours of labor iu mines and the i'reo rights of
contract, mav have a very important
effect on tho business interests of tills
town It is probable that sound common sense will prevail in the end,
and that the miners working in Ihe
���Nelson district will arrive at tho conclusion that, when a grand motherly
legislature enacts that eight bonis
wmk on! of the twouty-inur is as much
as is good for them they oaunot ex-
peot to bo paid for work that they do
not perform, and that therefore tho
mines will continue to operate. Un-
- der the existing oonditionB,however, il
is the duty of every man, who has the
interests of this town at heart, or who
is its well wisher, to do what ho can
to maintain peace and harmony between employers and employed and to
nvoid saying anything thai may aid
or lead to friction hetweeujthe parties
mainly concerned.
John Houston poses as a friend to
Nelson. Ho has been very much m
evidenoe as the Mayor for two years.
Through the columns of tho paper be
edits, he would havo us believe that
he is our guide, philosopher and
friend, that Nelson should follow, believe in and trust him I but has his
attitude on this burning question
Shown that he is to be trusted ill and
followed. Has ho said one word to
how that he realizes that the successful working of the mines subsidiary to
Nelson means the success and prosperity of Nelson and the welfare ot the
mining community V And lias lit used
the groat influence which his paper
undoubtedly possesses locally, to assist
in maintaining cordial relations between tho two parties concerned.' Ibe
(allure to condemn, the almost sympathy he has expressed with, the recent lawless acts in theOoeurd Alones
suihYiently answer this questions and
the animus he shows towards the mines,
iu his issue of the 24th of May, by
pointing out that good miners can Obtain   *8.50  per  day south ot tho lino,
There, was not much to the play
produced by the Harry Lindley Company at the Opera House last evening,
It was entailed "All is not gold that
glitters ' and was termed an English
comedy. Certainly Mr. Lindley's
work was oomedy and excellent corn-
edy at that, and while ho was on the
stage everything was merry as u marriage bell. But the company was not
well salted to the piece and did not
duplicate their croditablejperformance
ot tho previous evening when ���'Little
Lord Fauntleroy" was produced.
Tho company contains some excellent
people who can give great, satisfaction
in plays with which they are perfectly familiar. One of these is underlined for tonight. It is as pretty
comedy plav entitled "My Queen"
and all iho members of tho oompnny
are cast m pans suitable to them,
Mr.L indley is especially well provided for and his friends may be sure of
an enjoyable performance. Tomorri.y
afternoon "Uncle Tom's Cabin" will
be given at iho Matineo. This sterling old play has its host of friends and
the house will not doubt be well filled,
As a special inducement to children the price of admission to thetn
lias been placed at 10 cents, [n tho
evening there will he a lap donblelbill,
"Ten Nights in a Bar room"nnd "Our
Boys" will bo given. Tho specialties
which have proven popular tnis week,
will be given in their entirety making
up tour hours of continuous perform-
once.

STANDARD    OIL       IN     ALASKA
A joint meeting of the Minors' Unions of Sandon aud Silverton was hold
on Wednesday evening at tlio latter
plnco. The proceedings were secret,
and it was impossible to find out definitely what passed. From conversation with various members before
the meeting, it appeared that it was
generally understood that the unions
meant to demand tho old scale of
wages, though thorn was some talk of
accepting tho lower rate if arrange
mcuts could be made with the mine
owners for a lower boarding rate. The
figure mentioned would make the net
wages of the men much the same as he-
fore. It was said openly by men in a
position to know that the men intended
to go out 011 June 1 if these demands
were not complied with.
The insoeotion of the union safts
from Gem -ml Burke has produced
somo cv.rious evidence. Tho hooks of
tho Gem union contained one section
headed. "List of persons run out."
Under it was given the name and an
accurate personal description of each
man whom the dynamiters had forced
to flee for his life. In the Burke safe
was $1154. ISO in cash. Some of the
members formally requested Baitlett
Sinclair to turn it over to them. Mr.
Sinclair "regretted that he could not
do so, hut he would have pleasure in
delivering it to Ed Boyce the president
of the Federation, or Mike Davy, the
president of the Burke anion, if either
would call personally on bun in his
oilice near the bull pen."
* *   *
*Thoro is a great deal of activity in
mining circles in aud around Slooao
City. The prospectors are getting out
to their claims as fast as the disappearing snow will let them, and development work for tho season is opening up in all directions. Most work
has been clone on the Arlington, and
now that tho legal difficulties have
been smoothed away development work
is being proceeded with. Some five or
six men are now at work on the property.
Four feet of high grade dry silver
ore has recently been struck on the
BlacK Prince, and the owners are
preparing to make shipments. This
property is situated on the divide between Springer and Lemon creeks.
The Tamarack is now being developed under a working bond and shipments will soon be made.
On the Ohapleau two men are at
work getting out ore which is a quartz
carrying galena. Tho Two Friends
and Bank of England claims are being
developed.
Tho ores in this district generally
are dry ores,hut bodies of galena are occasionally met with, It is characteristic that ail tho ores carry gold, and
are high grade in silver. Large and
frequent shipments are expected this
year as soon as the snow goes off. and
the Kail Mines smelter expect s to get
much of the ore.
* *  #
The substitution of aluminum for
copper in electrical work has beon
talked of nnd in some cases undertaken. Aluminum is to be used in
some street lailroad work now in
progress in Kansas Oity, and in some
other places proposals for tho metal
have been asked for. Making due allowances for the relative conductivity,
tensive strength nnd weight, aluminum is at present prices tho cheaper
metal of the two; and for many purposes in electrical work its use in
place of copper is quite practicable.
That the substitution will be made
to any considerable extent is not probable, however, or indeed possible, be-
oause the supply of aluminum is not
large enough. The production is on
an increasing scale, but the total docs
not rench n quantity sufficient to make
any figure in the markot as compared
with copper. Moreover, it is not possible to increase the output on a large
scale at short notice, and so to take
advantage of present conditions. No
better opportunity to extend the use of
aluminum will probably occur for a
long time, and the manufacturers will
probably utilize it to the best of their
ability.���Engineering and Mining

Seattle, May 35.���The Standard Oil
Company having a secured not only
the old Russian title but a later mineral land grant from tho United States
government to the ooal hinds at Cook's
Inlet is preparing to develop the coal
fields which are of vast, extent. The
company has already deposited $100.-
iiDO wifii loon! banks for ;lio use of Alfred Ray the pro-iPiit manager hero,
who has outfitted n ci ': : of engineers
that will sail on ill j Orizaba tomorrow. G
These engincrs will coiupleto 'surveys already partially nindo aud
make other suiveys for wharves, rail
roads from the mines to tho  shore etc.
The Cook Inlet coal mines, as they
are commonly known, were first worked by the Russians years ago and later
by a San Francisco oompany, but
questions of title aud the vast amount
of money required to fully develop
the mines hindered the work until the
Standard Oil Company secured control.
