[Nelson,  British Columbia,  Saturday, June 3,   1899.
Tenth Year
BIGHT-HOUR LiW ABD
An
Interview  With
John McKane.
Mr.
THE HARM IT WILL DO
The Effect a Strike Doming at the Present   Time   Will   Have   on
the Kootenays.
Mr. John McKane who has recently
been in tlio old country where he had
opportunities of corning in touch with
the moneyed men of the old country
has been interviewed on the subjeot
of the eight-hour law hy the Rossland
Miner. What he Buys is given below.
It may be stated hero that Mr. McKane is a mining man of experience
who has invested largely in this district. He is a prominent member of
the Rossland Board of Trade and last
summer contested the Rossland division against Mr. James Martin, the
present member.    Mr. McKane   said :
"One of the chief inducements of
capitalists and thoBe who were considering the question of investing in
British Columbia mining properties,
was the absolute certainty that there
would be no labor troubles in this
Province. They had hoard a great deal
of the riots in the United States, and
the effect was to make thorn very shy
of iuvesting there. Sinco my roturu I
hnvo learned with a grant deal of regret thai iu some mictions of British
Columbia there are now some questions in dispute between the mine
owners and the miners. From what
you toll me of the latest news from the
Slocnn that tho properties
the exception
divisions may extend hero. In considering tho matter 1 must sny 1 truHt
that tho employees of tho mines here
will act with tho greatest oautiou and
care, aB,,of course, they will be the
first to suffer from tho mine shutting
down."
there, wi^h
of the Slocau Star, are
all closed down, I can only say that
I think it is a matter very much to
bo regretted. From what I can learn
of tho matters in dispute, the contending parties do not appear to bo so
far apart that a compromise could not
bo reached, providing the men aud the
mine owners were allowed to deal with
one another without any unnecessary
interference.
"I was out of the country when the
n ew law was passed, and heard nothing of it until my return to Rossland
tho other day. It seems a very groat
pity that at a critical time when there
iB every prospect of Southern British
Columbia entoriug upon a boom iu
mining, such as has not boen experienced for many years, tho movement
would bo checked at the very outset by
trouble of this kind. Of course, if the
matter is universally tnkeu up and
the mines close down, it will be almost impossible to fully realize thn
damage that will follow. It is a matter that affects all of us, and no one
more than the employees themselves,
but the merchants and men of business,
as well as those engaged in mining,
will suffer a set back if the question
is not settled very shortly.
"Capital is always timid, and tbe
bare suggestion of labor difficulties
would be in itself sufficient to Bend it
off to some other quarter seeking for
investment. I can say from my own
personal knowledge that at the present
moment in European financial circles
more attention iB being paid to tho
situation hero than has ever buen tho
case. If the reports now go back to
England that tho minos are closed
down on account of labor troubles, I
very greatly fenr that it will be some
years before the districts of Southern
British Columbia will recover from
tho evil effects.
"So far as I am personally concerned I deBire that the men should obtaiu
a fair wage and only work reasonable
hours, but they havo to remember that
the mining industry in this Province
is Btill in its initial stage very largely,
and that in Borne instances at all
events thoy might very well meet the
mine owners on some different basiB.
If the agitation is to continue, and
the whole of the Province is to be set
hy the ears, those of us who are engaged in attempting to develop properties
might as well closedown our business.
I have not learned yet tbat there has
been any attempt made to bring the
contending parties togethor and to ascertain just how they differ, and
whether some compromise could not be
arrived at, but if this is possiblo it
should be done. I think that if the
men themselves consider tho calamity
hanging over the industry that they
will ponder very seriously bofore the
carrying out of a universal strike. There
can be no two opinions as to tho effect
upon the industry at the present time.
It will simply kill it. In this camp
at the present time I understand the
mine owners and the men are working on an equitable basis but there is
always a danger that the dissatisfaction existing in the Blooan nod Nelson
FROM A  BUSINESS MAN.
To the Editor of Tho Miner:
Sir���As was to bo expootod, the dissatisfied Editor of Tho Tribune is opposed to closing the door before the
horse is stolen. Ho doos not approve of
such a discredited momber of the community as an employer of miuiug labor taking steps to protect the property
entrusted to his caro and affording
protection to men willing to work,
who havo been intimidated by the union men. No; wo nro told we ought
rathor to have the Wardner lambs,
now oorralled by the military in Ida-
bo, turned loose amongst us, than have
spooial constables enrolled, whoso sole
mission is to maintain peace.
There is another object for this blatant editors' righteous wrath. A Justice of the Peace in Nelson was manly
enough to do his duty by swearing
in these special constables when it was
shown that there was reasonable
ground for his doing so. Every law
abiding man in Nelson will approve
of his action, and I congiatulate him
upon the remarks made upon his aotion
by The Tribune. They are in truth
higher compliment than any praise
would be; for we see the usual appeal
of the agitator to tbe Government to
remove the official, who is willing to
aid in the maintenance of order.
The Slooan and Nelson districts are
suffering.and likely to suffer still more
from the meddlesome and injurious
legislation of the Government The
Tribune worked tooth aud nail to plaoe
in offloe. After tbe legislation was
passed, it was held in abeyanoe for a
time, while efforts were being made
to prevent its enforcement,until reconsidered at the next session of the
House; but The Tribune adoovated
its enforcement. The Tribune has
persistently done all it can to foster a
spirit of antagonism between employers aud employed, totally reckless of
the heavy loss entailed bv aoloBedown
of tho mines to all concerned and to
every business, trade aud industry in
tho neighboring towns. But, what
cares its Editor, so long as the dogs of
war are let Ioobs. Sooner than see the
fair offer of the mine ownerB accepted,
he will do his best to make miners
penniless, ruin retail dealers and close
up every business dependent on the
pity rollB ot the mines; his fat income
is not effected, his withers are un-
wrang, and so long as he can he will
1: ������p the fat iu tbe flre, ns his lingers
are not burnt.
Business men here nre well able to
size up the situation. They know that
the mine owners made a just aud n
business like proposal, a proposal
which every true friend of Nelson
should try to get the miners to accept.
They know that nothing is to be
pained by a protracted strike, and
they know that the strike would
speedily terminate were it not for paid
agitators, who make their living by
fostering discord, and who are aided
by such papers as The Tribune.
A NELSON BUSINESS MAN.
Nelson, June 2, 1899.
STILL  IN   DOUBT
STATUS OP THE JAMAIOAH TABIPF
COMMISSION.
PARIS GOING WILD
Banquets in His Honor Held
Everywhere.
A SIGNIFICANT ALBUM
Fortunate for Franco that Major Marohand
Ia   Not  Another   General
Boulaneer.
Paris, June 2.���The excitement is
high and sixty brawlers are in detention. Things are fairly qui3t. The
members of the Marohand Mission are
now the guests of the colonial minister, M. Guillain and his reception in
their honor this evening is a really
brilliant function. The pavilion,
where it is going on, is the end building of the palaoe of the Tuilleries, on
the side next the river and at present
partially occupied by the Colonial
Olllco. It was rebuilt for the late
Prinoe Imperial. The rooms are lofty
and of noble size, bnt a few piokod
people only were invited, Senators,
deputies, naval and military personages and others, Prince Henry of Orleans was invited as an explorer,
Prince Roland Bounprte as a patron of
geographical explorations, and three
sons of President Carnot as traditionally interested in all the glories of
France and M. Alfred Mezieres, of the
Aoademy, as head of the Parliament
ary committee which carried in the
chambers of deputies tbe Marohand
medal vote.
To give England another "pinprick" che government would only
have retarded tbe mission from traversing Africa, from the Congo to a
point west of the Nile, but Mezieres
insisted on the medal saying the mission had marched from the Atlantic to
the Red Sea, thus  including tbe Nile.
A coincidence was that Deloasse's
Anglo-French convention was presented to the senate on the same date as
the Marchand Mission reoeived the
medal.
The Union of non-commissioned
officers of France will give a banquet
in honor of the mission tomorrow and
will present an album signed by 4,-
000 non-commissioned officers and offi
c ers who have risen from the ranks.
Tbis is a most significant oircum-
stauceB. or would be if Marchand were
a Boulanger for it would betray a dan
greous situation.
Lieutenant-Colonel Du Paty de
Clam's "arrest is certain to occasion
startling revelations. General De
Boisdeffre, however, is safe. He is
associated with the Franco-RuBsian
party. He was a personal friend of
tbe late Czar, and enjoys the friendship of Nicholas and the Km press
Dowager; to hunt him down would be
offonsive to the court of  Russia.
No Word Yet Received   at Washington J to HAVE   SHORT   LINE  RATES
Regarding   the   Commission ���       _,   ,  ~       ~~ _,
�� I    New   York, June 1.���General Coun-
From Jamaica. j Bel Bunn says the Northern Pacific, in
the St. Paul-Superior rate matter establish tbe precedent that it can always, without asking permission,
establish short line rates to meet competition regardless of the long and
short haul clause of the interstate law.
It is prepared to fight lor this principle in tbe courts. The Minnesota railroad commission ordered an intermediate rate, whereupon the Northern an-
noouced short, line rates to Superior Wis.
claiming supreme court decisions in
similar cases justihed such a violation
of the long and short haul olauses.
This, likely, will prove important in
many situations on tbe   Paoifio Coast.
Washington, Jun<s 2.���The authorities are at a loss to account for the
tariff commission from Jamioa, which
will start for Washington within tbe
next few days. Thus far no word has
been received from the London Foreign Office, although this may come at
anytime in tho meantime the status
of tbe Jamaican Commission is somewhat iu doubt, as the government
officials are not in the habit of recognizing colonial officers, unless they
come to speak with the authority of
the homo government. The department has received some telegrams
from Kingston but these have not disclosed the authority of the commission.

The Queen Regent Delivers
a Speech.
THE SORROWS OF SPAIN
Counsels Reticence and Silenoe in Order to
Forget the Experiences the Country
Has   Passed   Through.
Madrid, June 1.���The Queen Regent
today opened the Cortes with the
usual ooioniony,and in tbe speech from
the throne announoed that the Marianne, Caroline and Palos Islands were
ceded to Germany by the late Spanish
Cabinet. Dnring the oourse of the
speech, Her Majesty said :
"At the opening of the Cortes all the
sorrows which have wrenched our
hearts through the disasters whioh
bave visited our country are re-awakened. We must preserve silenoe in order to drive the memory of the experiences therefrom for the woes of our
country are of such a nature tbat reticence and silence avail better than
complaints. When peaoe with the
United States was ooncluded, Parliamentary troubles caused a change of
cabinet, and the present cabinet, was
formed. Under the constitution it belonged to me to ratify tbe treaty by
laying it before the ohambers. There
remained under our control the Carolines, Palaos and most of tho Manama Islands. But tbe former cabinet
believed it useless for Spain to retain
suoh minor appendages of oar ancient
empire and signed to tbe German emperor a covenant offering to cede those
territories under the law whioh will
be submitted immediately t.itheoham-
ber. Our foreign relations are cordial
and friendly, we especially owe to the
Pope recognition of the many times ho
has given us his moral support. The
rabst important, most urgent and most
diffioult task before you is to be balance the budget and liquidate the
debts resulting from tho war through
ordinary and permanent sources of in
como. Thanks to the severely eoono-
imo policy projected bv the Government it will not be necessary to ask
sacrifices of tbe country except such as
can be equally divided among all
classes.
"With the ordinary budget will also
be presented schemes to liquidate
the oharges created by the loss of pas-
sessions and colonial campaigns.''
The Queen Regent then refeired to
the financial measures and expressed
confidence that the nation would show
the same resignation during poaco as
it  showed   during   the   war   adding:
"For the times are critical, and it is
impossible during the present session
to do all that is necessary. But during the next session there will be projects for tho ro-orgauization of tho
army and navy, baspd on obligatory
service for improving the publio s��
uices by decentralizing.
GIVEN BRITHDAY HONORS.
Will  Probably   Return   to  Paris   on
Steamer Lafayette.
Kingston, Jamaica, June 2���Advices
received here from Cayenne, tbe oapi-
tal of French Guiana, say that all preparations have been mado for transferring former Cautain Dreyfus imprisoned on Devil'B Mnnd to the charge
of officers from Paris who are said to
be coming on board the French
steamer Lnfayette, which it is alleged
will take the prisoner direot from
Devil's Island ou her return voyage to
France. The adviceB add that Dreyfus
has been iu the enjoyment of good
spirits since ho was notified that he
was to bo taken back to Franoo for the
purpose of undergoing a new trial.
According to these advices a water
famine prevails throughout tho colony.

Polioe to got out of town within 24
hours under penalty of being compelled to work on street improvements
witbont the option of a fine. A number of them, anticipating tbe movement, have gone to Greenwood, where
the local autborities recently took similar action. The Greenwood characters possess a worse reputation, as holdups are frequently reported from there.
A number of burglaries have occurred here lately. A few nights ago the
residenoe of K. F. Petrio was broken
into and $250 in cash and a diamond
ring were stolen from his trousers lying a the foot of his bed. As yet there
is no olue to the recent postofHoe burglary.

carriage as it drove up to tho door
and in spite of efforts of tho police to
keep tho sidewalks clear, the child
was almost suffocated in tho rush of
people who were anxious to get a
glimpso of tbo baby. A great cheer
went up as Mr. Clark emerged from

of humanity in bis arms. Mr. Clarke
rushed up the steps and met his wife
ut tbe top. Tho crowd ou tbe outside
yelled to seo the baby and Mr. Clarke
held the child up to the window so
that all could see it. This was greeted with great cheers.
London, Juuo 8.���Tho Daily Chron
iole says that Major Comte Ferdinand
Walsin Esterhazy culled at its oflloe
lust evening (Friday) with a confidential friend and made the following
statement i
"The chiefs of the army have disgracefully abandoned me. My oup is
full and I shall speak out. Yes (raising bis voice t.ud glaring around), it
was I who wrote tho bordereau, under
orders.''
Esterhazy, the Chroniclo says, then
procoeda to explain that for months
before 180S moral proofs had been obtained of leakages whioh were only
possible through an otlice belonging to
the ministry of war and it waB necessary to catch the guilty party by material evidence. Hence the bordereau.
When asked what tho chiefts of the
French general staff would say to this
confession Esterhazy shrugging his
snouldeis said:
"They will lie as thoy know how
to lie, but I huve them tight and I
have proofs that thoy know tho whole
thing and share tho responsiiblity with
no and I will produce the proofs. "

given free play, and the troubles will
vanish. The longer the dispute lasts,
however, the farther from reason will
both of them get.
A GOOD THING TO LEAVE ALONE.
If the NeUon   Board   of   Trade will
take tbe advice of The Miner,   it  will
not touoh with a pair of   tongs the request of the Rossland Board toco-oper
ate in praying that provision   bo made
in the Redistribution Bill for u separate
Kootenay constituency.   Let  Rossland
besoeech  aud   demand   until black in
the face, if such   is   its   pleasure, but
Nelson business men will   show  wisdom by keeping out of id.    In the first
place, reduce it down to as flue a point
as we  may, the matter is  a  political
one  pure  and simple,   and Boards  of
Trade   go   outside    tbeir    legitimate
sphere when they interfere in politics.
But that, perhaps, is a small consideration, although   by   no   means one  to
whioh it would be safe to be absolutely
and habitually indifferent.
There is a  better reason   tban tbat.
Should   the Redistribution   Bill   pass
successfully through both  Houses tbis
session, of which, by tbe way, there is
at least   some  doubt, it   would be  an
advantage perhaps   if Kootenay  were
given a member of   its  own.   And  it
may seem like opposing  onr  own in-
ter.ists not to do whatever  is   possible
to   seoure   tbis   end.     Tbe Minsr  is
quite conscious that   it  is  subjecting
itself to tbe risk   of  being  misunderstood, and it quite realises that it could
make itself   popnlar by joining in the
demand for Kootenay's recognition. If
we do not get  a separate member during the life   of  this   Parliament,   we j
shall have  to wait for tbe   redistribution to follow tbe   next census.   That
is all true, and  moreover   it  is what
we shall have to   submit to,   whether
we like it or not.    It   is   an  accident
that there is to be   a   dissolution   immediately preceding a census, and it is
an accident to which  all   have to reconcile themrelvos.    Tbe present meas
nre   is   culled   a Redistribution  Bill,
but it is not a Redistribution Bill.   It
is a Bill to readjust  certain   boundaries in two or three   of   the   Provinces
which the men now   in   power olaim
were gerrymandered by another set of
men several years   ago.   It is not a redistribution in tbe sense of  apportioning seats   after   a   new census.     The
representation of none cf the Provinces
is   being   increased    or lessened.   We
could   not get a  member for Kootenay
without adding   to the   representation
of  British   Columbia,   something  the
present   measure   does  not pretend to
contemplate;  something     which   tbe
Government have distinctly  disavowed.    Or ir not this, we oould obtain it
only at the  expense   of   a  disarrang-
ment of all the other constituencies in
the Province.    The Government have
left no   doubt   on   this   point   either.
They say   their measure is to be   confined to the   gerrymandered  districts,
and British   Columbia  has   not  been
gerrymandered.   If tbe Nelson  Board
of Trade were to  join  with the Rossland Board   in   asking for a  separate
constituency, they  would doubtless be
recommended to keep their  eyes  and
ears   open,   when   they   would  know
something of the Governments' intention which shonld   bave spared  them
the trouble of interfering.
The purpose of tbe present Bill
would require to be completely altered,
if the views of the Rossland Board of
Trade were to he met. And it would
hive to be altered in the direction of a
general redistribution, which constitutional praotice has established can
only be made after and in consequence
of a deoenmal census. Neither Parliament nor the Government bave the
slightest intention of anything of
tbe sort. To pray them to do what
they have no thought of attempting
and no right to undertake would be a
bit of folishness quite unbecoming the
character and reputation of the Nelson Board of Trade, although it might
suit Rossland admirably.
Thero has boou another turn in the
Ileudmitn'.i Island affair. It is reported from Ottawa that iu a pigeou hole
of the Department of Militia a document has boon found which establishes
beyond doubt that the Island wbbdeeded to the Dominion as far back as
1888. This find, if a genuine one, will
open the way to a settlement of a question that hits threntened to disrupt the
Semlin-Goverument. And it will bo
an immense relief to Mr. Joseph Martin, as well as a corresponding disappointment to Mr. Cotton.

AT   THE ASSIZES
ANOTHEK MURDEB 0/BE II SOW
BEING TBIED.
F.  Levibtio  Sentenced to  Nine  Mouths
Impi'isonnient���Pasto   Now   on
Trial for His Life.
The first case yesterday morning
was Regiua vs. Frank LuiviRiie. Tbo
prisoner wns accused of stealing a
razor and $^0 from a man named Peterson nt tho Spokane Hotol at Robs-
lnnd. When arrosted the razor waB
found on him though most of the
money had gono. After the evidenco
hail been taken tho jury brought in a
verdict ot guilty and Mr. Justice
Drake sentenced him to nine months'
imprisonment,
In the afternoon another murder oaso
wns brought up, the third of this
assizes. The prisoner is un Italian
named Pnsto, who is accused of shooting a man naniart Toronee Ryan in
Cranbrook this Bpriug. The story of
tho oaso as developed by the eviclonco
rather tends to the supposition that
the wrong man was killed The tragedy appears to have doveloped much
ns follows. On the evening of tho
crime there wore two men in a house
of ill fame in Cranbrook kept by a colored womau, Jennie Howard. The
woman was standing at the door of bev
house when two Italians, tbe prisoner
and a man named Miohele Mnmehio,
passed the house. Seeing the woman
at the door the two Italians began to
abuse her with oaths and foul language. Heaiiug this the two men in
the house, oue of them named Maus-
fiold, rushed out. aud belaboured the
dagos with a poker, boating them
prettv hardly. The Italians eventually got away, and, after the manner
of their kind proceeded to plan revenge.
Just about this time the deceased
passed the house and went down to the
rnilrod track, spoke a few words to
some of the men working there, and
moving off home, was shot it is alleged by Pasto. The evidence won ^tto
show that the prisoner was seen by
Oar Inspector J. M. Robertson with a
revolver in his hand just lefore the
shooting. Engineer Jensen testilied
that he heard two shots fired, the deceased tottered a few yards and then
fell back. The wituess took a light
from bis engino and went up to him,
and thou raised an alarm. The evi-
deuoe also showed that after the shooting the prisoner went to a shack
where some frieusd of his lived and
said that he had shot a man, and would
stand the consequences.
Wheu the court adjourned the ease
was by no means over and it will lie
contimiod tbis morning at 10 n. m.
when tbe rest of tho caso for the
Grown will be presented. Deputy
Attorney General McLean appeared
for Iho Crown and Mr. J. R. Costigan,
Q. 0., for thn defense. The names of
the jurymen are:
A. R. Sherwood, foreman; and J.
A. Irving, G. D. Curtis, J. E. An-
nable G. W. Steele, E. 0. Traves, G.

there were several people still to be

The Nelson Base Ball Team Suffered a
Waterloo   Yesterday,
Yesterday afternoon a very exciting
ball gome took place on the recreation
grounds between tho Nelson Baseball
Club's nine and n scrub toam managed by Jamofl McDonald.
The game started nt 3 :!!0 nnd looked
ns if it might be an even game but in
the fourth inning the Nelsou tenm allowed the scrubs to score up six runs'
after whioh the game wns decidedly
one-sided as the following score by
innings will show:
12 8 4 5 6 7
Nelson...2 0 10 10 2
Scrubs...0   10   6   2   6   0   9   2-26
Tho teams wero made up as follows:
Nelson Scrubbs.

Neelands, 8 s. s Emerson

Tho Nelson team changed their
pitoher several times bnt without
avail. Although they seemed to feel
confident, of winning the $200 purse
hung up for the game they hnd to acknowledge that their team will need a
little "fixing" before taokling any
outside team, and it is generally
thought that a tenm oould be pinked
from the two that would easily be
ehnmpions of Kootenay.
THE   NELSON    CRICKET   CLUB
AT     THE     CITIZENS   MEETING.
the
What Wns Douo nud   Arranged nt
Meeting Last Night.
Tho general citizens meeting called
for last night was held in tho Fire
Hall A largo number of those interested in the celebration were present.
Mayor Neelands took the chair and
made a fo>v suitable remarks in which
he said it was the general wish of the
people of Nelson to get in and have
the biggest colouration over yet held in
the Kootenays the coming Dominion
Day aud he thought that everyone
should get iu aud dig, doing what they
could to make it n great success.
John Houston, secretary of the celebration committee then wns oalled
upon to explain to the citizens what
had already been done. Ho prefaced
his remarks by saying the subscription
list had nearly reached the $11,000
mark and there was still more money
coming in which announcement was
received with loud applause. The
names of the various committees were
then read aftor whioh a resolution was
put aud unaniomusly cnrried endorsing all that had already been done after which the meeting broke un, most
of those proseut expressing a determination to got in and work so that Nelson
should have tho biggest time on reo-
ord. The various sub-oomittees as
soon as thoy can aro going to meet
and outline tho various programmes in
their own particular line and submit
same to u geueral meeting of committees, when wavs and means will be
gone into nnd tho various amounts of
prize money allotted for eaoh particular sport.
A mooting of the above named club,
was held last night at Messrs. Elliot
and Lennie's office. There wns n good
nttendnnce of members. After the
ordinary routine business of upproving
reports and accounts had been got
through, the following offioers for the
ensuing year were elected :
Hon. Piesident���Mr. J. Roderick
Robertson.
President���W. F. Brougham.
Vice-Presidents���Messrs. Buchanan,
Holt, Georgo Neelands and Rowley.
Committee���Messrs. Brown, John
Elliot, Macrae, Griddle and H. J. Evans.
Secretary and treasurer���Mr. Fred
Elliot.
The subscription was then reduced
to $51.00 per annum. Practices will
shortly commence nud it is to bo hoped
that tbe members will attend the
same as regularly as they did last year.
tiunal annomyance to ladies, the authorities hnve decided to put a stop to
it, and section 207of the Criminal Code
of Oauada will be striotly enforced,the
penalty for whioh is six months with
hard labor.
A flower servioe will be held Sunday
morning in the Methodist church, at
which the children will do nearly all
the siugiug. Flowers are being gathered in from evorwhere for the oooa-
sion aud the ohuroh will present a
beautiful appearauce. The Sunday
School Orchestra will also assist.
It has been deoided to move the mattress factory at Trail to Nelson. The
company is known ns the Kootenny
Wire Works Company. The whole
plaut is to be f.ransferred here forthwith. Tho site, already annonnoed in
Tho Miner, has been seoured, and orders for the lumber and timber neoes-
sary for the new buildings have beon
placed.
The Ladies of the Macabees, Nelson
Hive No. 7, held their second meeting
yesterday afternoon wheu a oompeteut
staff of officers were installed.
The lodge is now in good working order and it is to be hoped that when
the ladies of the oity realize the good
work whioh this lodge intends doing
they will add their names to the list
of those already enrolled   as members.
Construction work on the Kaslo &
Lardo-Duucau Railway is being push-
ted and every man that oan bo obtained is at once put to work. From Ar-
genta towards Howaer Lake the right-
of-way is being cleared throughout
with n strong foroe. Work on the
runinline is being built through Duncan City and from the West end of
Duncan pass for two miles ont towards
Trout lake.��� Kootenaian.
Serious complaints have been made
from time to time by members of the
boat olub againBt certain unknown in-
diivdualH who make free use ot boats
canoes, oars, etc., whioh are not their
own property. The present system
adopted by the olub is far from satisfactory, though it is to be feared that
the fault lies in some of the members
themselves. The offioers of the clnb
however, are on the alert and there
will be "alarms and excursions"
should anyone be discovered in flagrante
delioto.
DON'T  DESPAIR,
And think that there will he no hot weather
this year, because we are having a few cool
days. The warm weather will come with a
rush, and find you unprepared unless you get
your Summer Shoes and Oxfords now.
Our lines are fresh and complete. Come and

KASLO COMING TO THE FRONT.
Travel through Kaslo oontinnes
apace, and business generally continues to grow. The many prospeotors
making tneir way to the different districts, railroad laborers seeking employment, and investors in mining
and real estate seeking new fields for
their capital encourages and stimulates
the growing confidence in our oity
in particular and the whole Ains-
worth distriot in general. Enquiries
oontinue daily for the renting of
bouses, and not a few for business
places. Lardo and Dunoan cities, too,
nre doing much to strengthen businesa
iu Kaslo as the major portion of supplies consumed there is taken directly
from here. Fact is, attention is given
this distriot by great numbers ot out
siders and we may expect that this
year will prove to be the best ever experienced in steady honest building np
and developing of the distriot. ��� Kaslo

aspect.
Tho smoke from the burning brush
up Cottonwood croek, drifted over
town last evening in a solid oloud
forming some very pretty offocts with
the sinking sun.
A lurid blaze illumined; the sky last
night in the neighborhood of Give Out
creek. The cause was a bush fire behind the saw mill which appeared to
bo spreading rapidly.
The regular meeting of the Ladies

beyond doubt that the Island was deeded to the Dominion as far baok as

A GOOD THING TO LEAVE ALONE.
If the Nelson   Board  of  Trade will
take the advice of The Miner,   it  will
not touoh with a pair of   tongs the request of the Rossland Board toco-oper
ate in praying that provision   bo made
in the Redistribution Bill for a separate
Kootenay oonstitnenoy.  Let Rossland
besceeoh  and  demand   until black in
the face, if such   is  its  pleasure, but
Nelson business men will   show  wisdom by keeping out of it.   In the first
place, reduoe it down to as fine a point
as we may, the matter is a political
one  pure  and simple,   and Bonrds  of
Trade   go   outside    their    legitimate
sphere when they interfere in politics.
But that, perhaps, is a small consideration, although  by   no   means one  to
which it would be safe to be absolutely
and habitually indifferent.
There is a  better reason  tban tbat.
Should   the Redistribution   Bill   pass
Bnocessfully through both   Honses this
session, of which, by tbe way, there is
at least   some donbt, it  would be an
advantage perhaps   if Kootenay  were
given a member of  its own.   And it
may seem like opposing   our   own interests not to do whatever is  possible
to   secure   this   end.     The  Miliar   iB
qnite conccious tbat   it  is  subjecting
itself to the risk   of   being  misunderstood, anil it quite realises that it could
make itself   popular by joining in the
demand for Kootenay's recognition. If
we do not get a separate member during tbe life  of  this  Parliament,  we
shall have  to wait for the   redistribution to follow the   next  census.    That
is all true, and  moreover   it  ii what
we shall have to  submit to,  whether
we like it or not.   It  is  an accident
tbat there is to be  a   dissolution   immediately preceding a census, and it is
an accident to whioh   all   have to reconcile themselves.    The present mens
nro   is   culled   a Redistribution  Bill,
but it is not a Redistribution Bill.   It
is a Bill to readjust  certain  boundaries in two or three  of  the  Provinces
which the men now   in   power olaim
were gerrym andered  by another set of
men several years   ago.   It is not a redistribution in the sense of apportioning seats  after  a  new census.     The
representation of none of tbe Provinces
is   being   increased    or lessened.    Wo
could   nut get a member for Kootenay
without adding   to the   representation
of  British  Colombia,   something the
present   measure   does  not pretend to
contemplate;  something    which   the
Government have distinctly disavowed.    Or if not this, we oould obtain it
only at the  expense  of  a  disarrang-
ment of all the other constituencies in
the Provinoe.    The  Government have
left no   donbt  on   this   point   either.
They say   their measure is to be  con-
lined to the  gerrymandered districts,
and British   Columbia   has   not  been
gerrymandered.   If the Nelson Board
of Trade were to  join   with the Boss-
land Board   in  asking for a  separate
constituency, they would doubtless be
recommended to keep their  eyes  and
ears  open,   when   they   vionld know
something of the Governments' intention whioh should   have spared them
the trouble of interfering.
The purpose of tbe present Bill
wonld require to be completely altered,
if the views of the Rossland Board of
Trade were to be met. And it would
have to be altered in the direction of a
general redistribution, whioh constitutional praotice has established can
only be made after and in conseqnence
of a deoenmal census. Neither Parliament nor the Government bave the
slightest intention of anything of
tbe sort. To pray them to do what
they have no thought of attempting
and no right to undertake wonld be a
bit of folishnesB qnite unbecoming tbe
character and reputation of the Nelson Board of Trade, although it might
suit Rossland admirably.

ANOTHER
MURDiiE 07 SB
BEING TRIED.
14 NOW
Levibue Sentenced to Nine Mouths
Imprisonment���Pasto   Now  on
Trial for Bin Life-
The  first
was Bogiua vs.
iirisouer
cane yosterday morning
Ih'nnk Lrjvlgne, Tno
wiib accusnd of stoaliug n
razor and $20 from u man naniod Pet-
arson at tho Spoknno Hotol nt Rosa-
landr When nrrostod the razor was
found on him though moBt of the
money had gone After tlio evidence
had uoen taken iho jury brought iu a
verdict ot guilty and Mr. Justice
Drake sentenced him to nine months'
imprisonment',
Iu tho afternoon another murdorcaso
wns brought up, tho third of this
assizes. The prisoner is an Italian
named Pasto, who is accused of shoot -
ing a man naniad Torouoe Ryan in
Cranbrook this spring. The story of
the oaso as developed by the evidonco
rather tends to the supposition that
the wrong man was killed Tho tragedy appears to have doveloped much
as follows. On the evening of tho
crime thore wore two men in n house
of ill fame in Cranbrook kept by a colored woman, Jennie Howard. The
woman was standiugat the door of hev
house when two Italians, the prisoner
and a man numod Miohelo Mnaaehio,
passed the house. Seeing the woman
at the door the two Italians began to
abuse her with oaths and foul language. Healing this the two men in
the house, ono of them named Mansfield, rushed out aud belaboured the
dagos with a poker, beating them
pretty hardly. The Italians eventually got away, aud, after the manner
of their kind proceeded to plan revenge.
Just about this time the deceased
passed the house and went down to the
railrod track, spoke a few words to
some of the men working there, and
moving off home, was shot it is alleged by Pasto. The evidence wen ^tto
show thnt the prisoner was soon by
Oar Inspector J. M. Robertson with a
revolver in his hand just lefore the
shooting. Engineer Jensen testified
that he heard two slio's fired, the deceased tottered a few yards and then
fell back. The witness took a light
from his engino aud went up to him,
and then raised an alarm. The evi-
deuce also showed that after the shooting the prisoner went to a shack
where some friousd of his lived and
said that he had shot a muu, and would
stand the consequences.
When the court adjourned the ease
was by no means over and it will be
continued this morning at 10 a. m.
when tho rest of tho enso for the
Orowu will be presented. Deputy
Attorney General MoL.onu appeared
for tho Crown and Mr. J. R. Costigan,
Q. 0., for the defense. The names oi
tho jurymen are:
A. R. Sherwood, foreman; and J.
A. Irving. G. D. Curtis, J. E. An-
nable G. W. Steele, E. 0. Treves, G.
D. Hnnter, A. Periand, W. S. Smith,
W. H. Dowsing, S. J. Mighton, A.
D. Emory.
Eome of it was left out at the end hb
fc'iete were several people still to be
disposd of when tho end came. Miss
Ohoate had the part of an adventuress
and gave a very clever portraval of
the oharuoter. Mr. Wnldron made
rather a pleasant vidian. Mr. Fulton
bad his first good part of the week and
acquitted himself vory croditalby.
Tonight the strongest bill of the
Wiek will lie presented. There will
b.i two plays, "Mother aud Son," and
'' La Belle Marie,'' In both of these
productions the company gave great
satisfaction hero last year nud with
them as a double bill the houso should

promptly at 8 o'clock in order that the
performance will end by midnight.

A    STRONG    LOT    OP    SCRUBS.
The Nelsou Bnso Ball Team Suffered a
Waterloo   Yesterday.
Yosterday afternoon a very exoiting
bull game took place on tho recreation
grounds between the Nelson Baseball
Club's nine and a scrub tonm managed by James McDonald.
The game Htnrted at 2 :!I0 and looked
ns if it might be nu even game but in
the fourth iuuing the Nelsou team allowed the scrubs tn score up six runs'
after whioh tho game was decidedly
one-sided as the following Bcore by
innings will show:
1284   5   6788
Nelson...2   0   10   10   2   0   5���11
Scrubs...0   10   0   2   0   0   9   2���20
Tho teams wero made up as follows:
Nelson Scrubbs.
Blaokwood p Rockeufield
Waters o Oaverly
Partridge 1st b Moore
Mills 2nd b Smith
Neelands, J 3rd b Eokert
Neelauds, S s. s Emerson
Phnir     o. f Votaw
Houston r. f Blackburn
Campbell 1. f Hawkins
Tho Nelson team changed their
pitoher several times but without
avail. Although they seemed to feel
confident of winning tho J200 purse
hung up for the game they bad to acknowledge that their team will need a
little "fixing" before tnokling any
outside team, und it is generally
thought that a team oould he picked
from the two that would easily be
champions of Kootenay.
TOE   NELSON    CRICKET   CLUB
AT    THE    CITIZENS   MEETING.
the
What Was Dono and   Arranged at
Meeting Last Night.
Tho general citizens meeting called
for last night was held in tho Fire
Hall A largo number of those interested iu the celebration wero present.
Mayor Neelands took the chair and
made a fe��v suitable remarks in whioh
ho said it was tho general wish of the
people of Nelson to get in aud have
the biggest colouration ever yet held in
tho Kootenays the coining Dominion
Day and he thought that everyone
should get iu aud dig, doing what they
could to make it a great success.
John Houston, secretary of the celebration committee then was oalled
upon to explain to the citizens what
had already been done. He prefaced
his remarks by saying the subscription
list had nearly reached the f!i,000
mark aud there was still more money
coming in which announcement was
roccived with loud applause. The
names of the various committees were
then read aftor whioh a resolution was
put and unaniomusly carried endorsing all that had already been doue after whioh the meeting broke un, most
of those prosent expressing a determination to get in and work so that Nelson
shonld have the biggest time on reo-
ord. The various sub-comittees as
soon as they can ate going to meet
and outline the various programmes in
their own particular line and submit
same to a general meeting of committees, wheu ways and means will be
gone into nnd tho various amount? of
prize money allotted for eaoh particular sport.
A meeting of the above named olnb,
was held last night at Messrs. Elliot

Tne subsoriptiou was then reduced
to $3.00 per annum. Practices will
shortly commence and it is to bo hoped
that the members will attend the
same as regularly as they did last year.
tiunal annomynnco to Indies, the million ties have decided to put a stop to
it, and section 207of the Criminal Code
of Canada will be striotly enforced,the

placed.
Tlio Ladies of the Maeabees, Nelson
Hive No. 7, held their second meeting

Serious oomplaints have been made
from time to time by members of the
bout olub against certain unknown in-
diivduals who make free use ot boats
canoes, oars, eto., which are not their
own property. The present system
adopted by the olub is far from satis-
fuctoty, though it is to be feared that
the fault lies in aome of the members
themaelveB. The offioers of the club
however, are on the alert and there
will be "alarms and excursions"
shonld anyone be discovered in flagrante
delioto.

LOCAL AJND  PERSONAL
Travel through Kaslo continues
apaoe, and business generally continues to grow. The many prospectors
making their way to the different districts, railroad laborers Beeking employment, and investors in mining
and real estate seeking new fields for
their capital encourages and stimulates
the growing confidence in our oity
in particular and the whole Ains-
worth distriot in general. Enquiries
continue dnily for the renting of
houses, and not a few for business
places Lardo and Dunoan cities, too,
are doing mueh to strengthen business
in Kaslo as the major pottion of supplies consumed there is taken directly
from here. Fact is, attention is given
this distriot by great numbers ot outsiders and we may expect that this

MINES
OF \
KOOTENAY \
Siiiiilim, Juue 1.���The town Is rapidly filling up with men down from
the mines, though everything is quiet
and orderly. Tonight a special and
largely nttennded meeting of the looal
miners' union is in session. Tomorrow
the publio will doubtless be made acquainted with tho intention of tbe union, though no one believes for a moment that the members will acoept tbe
offer of the mine owners of |8 tor au
eight-hour shift. Every mine in this
vioiuity is closed tonight with the exception of the Slocan Star, which hns
been taking on the plok of the best
miners from other properties, thus
largely increasing the working foroe.
The local union confidently expects the
Star will continue to pay the old rate
of wages for eight hours, though there
are people here who claim to know
positively that the mine will close
flown on the 11th unless the employes
acoept the reduced soale as offered by
otber mines. The Star did not sign
nny agreement to pay only $8 aud oon-
<iu<>iitly has a free hand to do as it
pleases.
At Whitewater and MoGnigan the
mines are all closed. From the latter
camp Borne are going to the Ooeur
d'Alenes.
President Joseph Stookham of Sandon union returned here on the noon
train from Whitewater and is authority for the statement that over 100
miners in that camp joined the local
nnion last night.
* *   ��
During the past week miners have
been laid off in the different mines,
and we would draw the attention of tbe
publio to the fact that this shonld not
be looked upon as due entirely to the
eight-hour law. It must be borne in
mind that every year at this time the
same occurs and is due to the melting
snow that creates a flow of water
which is not only unhealthy for the
miners, but in many cases is cause for
no small loss in the value of the ore.
For instance in the Last Chance the
water washes away considerable rich
carbonates. ���Knot enaiiui.

The work of exoavating for the St.
Eugene concentrator building iB being
pusbed with all possible speed, and
the men digging the trench for the
flume are making a good showing.
The working force at the mine is being steadily inoreased, and there is
still a vacanoy for some praotioal miners. The tramway is being surveyed.

The Ymir Bossland Mining & De-
velompent Company, operating the
Bruce group bave acquired the Golden
Ridge and the Golden Ridge Fraotion
mineral claims adjoining the Bruce
group.
# *   ��
June 1.���This morning 35 men quitted the Ymir mine, being ordered out
by the Ymir's Miners' Union, as the
oompany had refused to pay $3.50 for
the eight-hour shift. This is the entire
foroe affected.
There were 20 miners nnd 15 outside
men, including the tramway men.
Thore are between 60,000 and 80,000
tonH of ore on tbe dumns, and unless
an amicable arrangement is come to
the mill will soon have to close down.
The men came into town in a body
with horse teams carrying their bedding and cashed their checks at the
bank.
It is understood tbat the general
manager of the Porto Rico and his
foreman stated that their company
would pay the $8.50 for the eight-hour
shift to skilled miners.���Ymir  Miner.
