Trouble Caused by the Eight
Hour Law-
Thirty-ono Stay   at   Work,   Twenty fivo
Oouie Down the Hill. ���Agitator ut Work.
The first fruits of thn rnonnt ill-
advised legislation of the present Government in   wantonly   interfering  in
the relations between employer and
employed have been brought forth. Up
till now the relations between miners
nnd mine owners have been of the
most pleasant description. The men
did good work, were paid good wages,
and both partiPS were contented. Today a strike bas to be chronicled,
which it is to be feared will bo the
forerunner of prolonged and disastrous labor troubles.
A little over a fortnight ago, Mr. E.
Nelson Fell, the manager of the Athabasca mine, in common with the other
mine managers of tbe distriot, received a notification from Mr. .7. Mac
Gregor, Pruvinoial Inspeolor of Mines,
that he must comply with tlie new
law that limits the hours of labor under ground to eight hours, The aot
provided for heavy penalties,if it were
infringed, and Mr, Pell thought it
wise to comply under protest. Accordingly on April 1, all the men went
to work on eight bom- shifts, tbo old
rate of pay, $;! nil tor miners and $3 OU
for muckers, being temporarily con
In tho meantime dolegitious wen1

their return, informed Mr. Fill nf lln
promises made by lhe Government
These have already been published in
Tbe Miner, btu it. may not hi* mn ol
place to repeat, thein  here,
The Hon. J. Fred Hume telegraphed
the Inspector 01 Mines not to takeanj
action under the act until further instructed. He also promised tin* delegation thai lhe Government would enquire of tbe members for the minim*
constituencies what was tin* wisl*
of the majority in their respective dis
tt-icts, Bnd would govern themselves
accordingly, He further promised tin
delegation that if the Government de
ciilcil 10 enforce the law, tin* min*
operators wonld receive .a month's nl
six weeks uotioe so that they might
have time to make nr:y arrangement*
which tin* new regime might reudi i
All this time, it must he remember
ed,nil the mines in tin* Blooan and Mel
son mining divisions were working on
tho old ten hour system, except lIn
Afhabasou. Mr. Fell naturally saw in
reason to operate bis mine indefiuifi I*.
at a greater expense than other com.
panics. Accordingly on Thursday he
not Hied the men that tbe teil-houi
shift would come into force yesterday
tin   receiving  tbis  notification   tin
men held a meeting among themselves*
to consider the matter, and   lhe chairman of tbeir committee   informed Mr.
Riley, the   foreman,  that   they   could
not   accept   the   change.    Mr.     Kiley
thereupon   went   round    to   the   mink
houses where the men were assembled,
and talked the matter over wilh them
He   found   Ihal  the   men   were undi**,
tho impression lhat in the mines operated by   the London and B, 0.    Gold
fields and other prominent  companies
the   men   were  working  eight   hour
shifts for $8,60, and tbat it   was   pro-
posed   to give   them the worst   of   it
Mr. Riley told Ihem the true slate of the
case, and   pointed   out   tout tho   new
law   bad not   come into operation yet,
that it was uncertain whollier  it over
would,   aud  tbat   in   the    meantime
thev wore asking  higher   wages  than
anyone   Rise was getting.     He also as
scroti them that if it  is decided to enforce the law, tho men might he satisfied
that, they would obtain   their  rights.
This put tlm mutter quite iu it new
light, and after talking tho mutter
over among themselves, Iho miners
showed themselves quire amenable to
reason, and declared themselves willing to go to work again on ten hour
Hy this time iho night shift, wero at
work, so Mr. Kiley asked the chairman of the men's cinninittee if he
wonld go round with him and talk to
the men on the night shift, lie consented, and the I wo went through the
mine aud explained tbe situation to tbe
men, The night shift was also snlis-
fied and agreed to work next day on
ten hour shifts. Their mission oon-
duded, tho two returned, and everyone retired for Iho night thinking that
all trouble and unpleasantness was al
au end.    Unfortunately it was not so.
Yesterday morning when Uu- time
name for tbe day shift to go on, there
was I rouble in tbo air, and sounds of
angry altercations Mr. Riley, the
foremen, wus on deck of course, and
he wuh confronted by a baud of   uugiy
unreasonable men who refused to go
to work. Moro than Unit, tor unanimity did not exist among the men
themselves, a number of the sinkers
ranged themselves across lln* month of
the tunnel and with oaths and asseverations announced their intention ol forcibly preventing anybody els,* from
working. What liny said, -mil what
they were going In do to any one win*
presumed to decide for himself what
hours he would work, was forcible, if
At this overt, act, of rebellion Mr.
Riley immediately jumped in and ordered the men asidu, and utter much
grumbling, cursing and threatening
the strikers obeyed, He then stood at
the mouth ot th) tunnel and announced
that, all who wished to go to work
oould do so, and that no ono would bo
allowed to molest them. He also informed tlm strikers that their cheques
would shortly he ready for lln in at
the office. Ibis had its effect, and the
majority of tbo men went quietly to
woik, and though short handed, " the
mine and mill are being operated as
When lhe strikers called for their
cheques, it. was found that 26 wanted
to unit while ill had deoided to go on
working. The majority who remained
constitutes the pick of the men, and
this compulsory weeding<mt will probably be no disadvantage to the Athabasca hi lln* long run. After being
paid off the 36 malcontents wenl down
ihe hill uttering all kinds of threats
as lo what tbey would do to the nunc
and ul. concerned. Needless to say
these were but, harmless ebullitions of
wrath. Nono of them have shown up
at the miuo again, nor are thev likely
This sudden change of front ou tbe
part, of the men between Thursday
u,glit .*nd Friday morning naturally
caused a good deal of surprise to tilt
management, but enquiry has revealed Ihe cause. It appears that, two oi
three days ago a big Irishman applied

Their Sawmills Cut no More
Canadian Logs*
Will Bring Pressure to Bear  on   Ontario
Government by a  Clause  in
Dingley Bill.
Washington,April 14.���A crisis,'it is
suid, has about been reached in the
controversy between the American
owners nf Canadian lumber in the
Province of Ontario and the Parliament of thut Province which recently
pusssed an act prohibiting the exportation uf all logs. The Ontario officials
have so constructed its act as to apply
it to all timber purchased and paid
for by Americans prior to the passage
of the act. The retroactive effect of this
legislation, if maintained, it is stated
will render worthless large holdings of
Canadian stumpage purchased by
Americans from the Crown Lands Department of Ontario, nnd ulso prevent tin* ^operation of extensive sawmills erected on the Amerioan side,
Which have no other source of supply
than the Canadian timber referred to.
Whon these conditions became
known to tbe American timber owners, they memorialized the government
of the United States to make reclamations from England as the United States bas no diplomatic
relations with the Dominion of Canada. The matter was referred to the
Joint High Commission but that
body having taken   tm aotion, a   coiu-
uiii.i . ,,f v. "iibe:- crfoerB, hcitHrrt hy
RX-Govornor Koch, of Michigan, camo
ni Washington a f��w days bnfore the
corumission dissolved and askod the
wcretary of thn treasury to impose
the retaliatory clause of the Dingley
act, which provided in snnstancu that
in case of the Canadian Government
placing an export duty upon logs, the
-ecrMarv of the treasury would ho
authorized to increase by that amount
*bc tariff on Canadian lumber.
After jurefail consideration and con-
ercnci s wuh   tbe Secretary   of   State
md   with   the representatives of  the
American owners of Canadian timber,
it is stated that a conclusion lias boon
practically arrived at by secretary
iage to apply lhe retaliatory clause of
the Dingley act fort) with,in default of
in assurance from the Canadian gov-
���rnincnt that the Provincial government shall be instructed not to prevent tbe exportation of logs purohased

in our judgment, if the power given by

will be committed. In the first place
previous experience shows that it is futile to expert to raise money locally,
aud Mr. Turner's plan of merging tb:i
Provincial loans into one class of slock

did uot. charge enough for it.   Another   ,natter wns gonrceiy   ,n shape for sub-
special meeting might be called to
reconsider thu bargain for the electric
light plant, and to pass a resolution
giving the innocent, deceived, and defrauded vending company fifteen or
twenty thousand dollars extra for it.
Still another might be called to recoD-
sidor payments of lawyers' fees, and to
declare that they do not charge half
enough. At the same time let them
advertise to the world, by resolution
formally and solemnly passed, that
the corporation affairs of Nelsou are
open to the plund ring of any one who
ehooiua to enrich himself at the expeuse
of the ratepayers.
Surely these members of the Council
have not stopped to reflect ou the
course they are taking. Before proceeding to reconsider a saving to the
City of a considerable amount of interest iu the course of a year, they had
bettor consider and reconsider what it
is they propose to do. They had
better also consider and reoonsider who
thoy are and whom they represent. If
in the Council as agents or servants
of the Bank of Montreal, to aid that
corporation in getting exoessive interest charges from the Oity, let the m so
deolare themse-res. But if,as representatives of the ratepayers of Nelson, whose
interests tbey are supposed to prefect,
it will be curious tc have them explain what they mean by today's special meeting. The City has surely a
right to i-haiu-c its bank if it pleases,and
if it gains by it the right becomes a
duty. Has tbe Bank of Montreal a
perpetual aud unassailable claim to
that account? Is there any diviue right
associated with it? If not, why all
this bother? Tho change has been
made in au honest, straightforward,
businesslike niauner. To suggest any
scheming or plotting between tbe
members of the Finance Committee and
Mr Kydd is preposterous; they are
mon us incapable of diihonorable nc
tion as any in the City,much more incapable than many of those who aie
egging on tbo Mayor aud his supporters to mnnioipal suicide. The ohange
is regular and legitimate. The City
is the gainer by it. The pretence tbat
its credit will be injured is too childish for grown men to put forward.
A city does not injure its credit by
looking after its own interests. It is
the duty of the Council to make the
belt banking arrangements they can.
What, then, is there to reconsider?
Is it wrong to itiukf ii good bargain in
the interest of the City? Ifjhu Mayor
Mill his friends in this mutter are wise
they will conclude before they aro two
hours older lhat tho only thing to reconsider is themselves.
The Colonial (loldflelds Uar.ette discusses in an interesting manner the
Loan Bill of the late session of the local Legislature : "It may be remembered that Mr. Somlin'a Government
came into oflice on the cry of retrenchment, but the announcement with regard to the proposed loan would imply
that  since assuming offloe   the new
Premier and bit eolleuguos recognise
the necessity, in view of the growing
demands of the mining industry, of
oarrying out a vigorous policy of publio works. If Mi. OottODi the Finance Minister, is correctly reported,
wc urn inclined to think that his methods will not meet with much favor iu
financial circles in London. Mr. Cotton calculated that be should got. at
least ��04 for his loan, which .after deducting expenses, would bring the
priou to ��93,6 per cent." We are told,
however, that he may not issue this
new three per cent, loan in the usual
way. The Loan Bill gives him power
to raise it either by Inscribed Stook or
Debentures.    Mr. Cotton thinks he can
mission to Parliament.   A Washington
dispatch published yesterday says   the
offer   was   referred   to   Ottawa   some *
time   ago   and that   the   Government
11ad "responded   with   the  acceptance
if the general idea of a modus vivelidi,
although some changes in ihe original
nvnposals are suggested,"   In view of
a,   Premier's   first   reply   to   the in-|
luiry, it is pertinent to  ask if be does
.ot  know what   is   going   on in   his j
���wu cabinet.

Holds glorious in their golden oarpet of suhjeot of the Rov. R. Frew
j There was soiut thing irregular
about the iiuiices anlling the meeting
of the City Council I'm- yesterday after
liuoii to ciiusidei- the mayor's veto o-
the resolution of tin* Counoil (o
ohange the corporation bunk aooouni
from the Bunk of Montreal to the
Merchants' Hunk of Halifax and us a
result the meeting was culled off und
notices for one at ll o'olock this morning were sent to nil the Aldermen.
The lirst notices sent out wero not
signed by the Mayor us they should
have 1 een, hence tho second edition
which woro Bigned by Mr. Neelands.
Indignation is the only word that
will express the feelings of the rate-
payers ur the action of 11 few aldermen
in so palpably endeavoring to sacrifice
the City's interests by forcing the acceptance of the less advantageous of
two offers for the City's bank nc-
ciiunt. That a meeting wu? hastily
called while Aid. Thomson is uwuv
when there is no reason ou earth for
immediate action bus compelled the
publio to think that there is ti nigger
in the fence somewhere unci this uc-
tiou, us muoh us anything else, bus
thrown the sympathy of the citizens
entirely   on   the   side   of the Hank ot'
lulifux.    In   lact,   at   present    there
a ems to be hut one opinion,nnd thut is
hut there is no possible course opt n
to the Aldermen bnt to accept tin
best offer,whioh is thut of the Hunk
of Halifax. The argument thut the
gain to the City would be too smull lo
bother ubout is entirely dispelled
when one goes into the question und
does a little figuring. The difference
in tbe tenders would mean a gain uf
no less than 111,000 on the debenture-*
Tbe City uow has a debt nf $116,01.0
anil it is proposed io issue debentures
for ubout 100,000 moro. As time
goes on tbe sinking fund will umount
to something very large umi ut the
end of 20 years the one pi t cent difference between the bids (if the tlnee
bunks uud that of tho Hunk of Halifax
will mean thut the City will moke
.���511,000 by the ueceptunci* ol' tin* liiltcr
offer. This is quite a different story
from that told by the opponents of
the ohange who aver thut the Oity
will gain only |7B or $100, As ugan sr
the assertion that then* Is no use in
unliving a ohange as tho account will
probably go buck next year it is poiut-
ed out that no change will be innde in
the future unless u more favorable
offer than that wbioh tin* Hunk ��� i
Halifax now makes is made, so il e
aooeptnnoe of tin* Hunk ef Hahfi x
offer will mean thut the City will hu- e
the benefit of a lower rate I'm- all tin. e
to come.
Oue reason advanced why lhe Oity
should not avail itself of the opportunity of making $11,000 us sln,*.\ii
above is that Ibe Bank of Montreal
bus always shown itself friendlj lo
the City and treated it well in overy
way. Km-doing this Hie corporation
bus paid the imtik T per cent, on over
drafts while the letter from the bank
now on file, stutes tbat the account
will be accepted ut II per eut. Sunn
people think thut sympathy com.*-;
high ut oue per cent. The Bank of
Montreal, today is charging the City
7 per cent, for borrowed money whereas the City could go elsewhere und
borrow it at a much better figure, In
view of tibs fact it is hard to persuade
the people, thai* the Bunk of Montreal
bus shown any great spirit nf gener
osity in ircutingwiili the City. However this is not tbe question,whioh is
simply whether lhe Cily is to ncoepl
the best offer it bus received. Aid.
Beer. Kirkputriok and MoKillop are
anxious that it should ; Aid. Blc'cliii-.
Hillyer and the Mayor un* anxious
that till business principles should be
oast to the winds   und the offer of the
Bunk of Montreal sooopted, because it
is the offer of the Bunk of Montreal. A
mere matter of $11.0110 is not tn ini'*.
