The Kasln Board of Trade has jk-H-
tinned the Legislature to either modify
or repeal the Right-Hour law We
have several times lnnl occasion to con-
gratnlate this Board on tbe spirit and
good sense displayed in dealinn with
matters affecting the public interest,
and now we have another instance of
it. The membership, we suppose, is
largely mercantile; but like all communities In the Kootenays, Kaslo is
closely identified with nnd largely dependent upon the mining industry.
Ir is entitled to speak, and with the
authority that conies nf direct personal
knowledge of tbe -abject in all its
bearings, on the working of the law
and the evil consequences that Bpring
from it.
The members of the Board believe
tbe law is a mistake, aud on a question of this kind their opinion is more
valuable than thnt of any like number
of members of tin* Legislature. We
presume they would prefer to have the
law repealed, and the old, satisfactory, and profitable condition of things
restored. Failing that, however, they
stiRBest a modification on which it is
possible to arrive at a compromise.
Let the standard day remain at eight
honr... if thonght must desirable, hut
let it be provided that there shall be
no penalty for working overtime.
That is a reasonable suggestion, and ii
lias the further merit of offering an
escape from the present difficulty. We
ar�� frequently .old that eight hours
constitute the standard day in the
Australian Colonies, That is quite
time. There they bave an eigbt-biinr
day, but there is also an eight-hour
wage.    In   Australasian mine;
"J. \V. Stewart has announced thai

Greenwood Times. "He is buying his

Miner is sntisiieil. I; is satisfied with
tbe awarding of the contract, ns it believes Mr, Stewart's (iirn ui" entirely
competent for the work. There i- no
our subscrib- j conceivable reason why it should imr
lhe sntislieci with the purchasing of
I their supplies in Nelson, Tbe Miner
is a jiart of Nelson, and naturally rejoices at anything and everything that
biing business in itB direction, just as
The Times would rejcice over Greenwood's good fortnne. Besides, where
else would they buy their -upplios'' At

It is suggested that Mr. Tnrte is
subject to opportune illnesses. He took
ill lust session and disappeared, hot
returned to employ a good pari of the
recess in active campaigning. The
sessiou is only 11 week old und be is
again taken ill The interpretation is
that Mr. Tarte is afraid to face the
music. We prefer to believe thnt he is
not shamming. We doubt very much
if he is ae onragcous as bis friends
claim, and lie is u vulnerable spot in
the Ministerial armor; but it is not
pleasant to think tbat be is afraid if
tho heavy guns of the House, and his
bealth is certainly not of the best.

living lor the most part is i|uite u^
expensive as in this Province, the
standard wage Is IS.60 a da}. Here
the whole minium Indastry is threatened with stagnation because the
niin.-rs tlemand $8.60 a day. We do
not suppose any one would object to
the eigbt-bonr day. but tbe pay should
correspond. The difficulty existing
here would probably adjust itself in a
short time, if the Legislature would
break ground for a general compromise
on the Hue suggested in the petition of
the Kaslo Board of Trade
How the Legislature can refute, or
why it. should delay, to take action
that would at least invite some form
"f settlement is beyond ordinary comprehension, It can be explained only
mi the theory that it is indifferent to
the pnblio welfare. Foi nearly six
weeks it has been in session, tbe greater portion "f which tinio bas bun
passed in a struggle between the parties for the loaves and fishes of office.
Dnring tbe remainder of the period
they have been pottering over Buoh
weighty matters as tho reduction of a
lew dollars on the license feo for a
country tavern. And all this time
thn principal industry of tlm Province
has been dying of a wound initiated
by the Legislature Itself, lu a feu-
days tin* Hail Mines Company will
close down, as a direct ri-uli of lhe
Eight Hour law. liead what Mr.
Croasd.lle says: "The increase, 1 I,,;
of labor al   the  mine since last June
hns ulso been a serious matter to ns,
cumin- as it iini when there was nol
much dead work to be done. Ibe
smelter wonld have helped greatly,
ami probably averted a suspension al- |
together, had we been able to ci'iitiiiiie
lead smelting steadily, We had contracts with silver-lead mines lust year
that would have enabled us to 'I" this
if tin- Slooan mines had not closed
down Inst June." Tlm War Eagle
and the Centre Star mines al Kossland,
two of the largest In that district nud
thr almost s.ile supply loi the Truil
smelter, ar" olosing down, ami it is no
secret thut this action is largely doe to
the Blgbt-Hunr law, Mines on all
sides are Idle through tbe -ami* uause.
Tbe Industry bus been seriously crippled; genernl uml complete stagnation
is threatened, and to it nil the Legislature remains impassive, This conies
nearest of anything we know to Nero's
liddling while Home buttled.

subject of discussion was the plague
