SOU STAY M WORK
Result in This Division ot
Eight-Hour Law.
CONSTABLES SWORN IN
A Spooial Train Carries Them to Ymir���
Stato of Affairs at tho Granite
aud Royal Canadian.
Thero were lint two general topics of
convolution In town yesterdny, those
in tbe court house wero interested in
the murder trial,bnt everyone else was
discussing tbo probable notion of tho
minors and mine owners on the nil important question of tlio reduction of
wages r.ue (u the unweloome eight
hour law. Tho mine owners bud long
sinoo tied umiI iho intention of reducing
the wuges of miners from 18,50, tbe 10-
hoiu' suule to $8 for tho now regime of
eight hours. But iho action of the
minors was not so certain. Tho unions
by means of some of their speakers
had deulnred their Intention to strike
torn oonthiuauoe of the old wage for
tbe"shorter hours,.but tho miners of
this country are by no means all union itieu, :uil there was considerable
doubt whether, in this district especially, tbe moil would as a body refuse
the union's terms.
Rumors were rife on Ihe siroets, nnd
n Miner reporter made it his business
to nud out exactly how matters stood
iu tho neighboring mines.
Enquiry sootf revealed the fact that
everything w:is going on us usunl at
tho Hull i\liues. No ono ban struck
or UiHu'''<utly even suggested striking. Tbe"men had gone to work us usual, nothing out of the ordinary transpiring. Neither was thero any trouble nt the Athtibosoa, Tho management there hud, a tow davs ugo, made
nn arrangement with tho men whereby
they are now only oharged |5.60 pet
week for hoard instead of $7, thus raising their nor, wage to |8.26, Tins
compromise bud been aooepted by the
minors, and consttqnently there was
no trouble It is understood that
their arrangement wns made with the
consent of Iho miuo owners' assoeiu-
tion.
At tho Granite nnd Royal Canadian
mines, owned by the Duuonn Mines,
Limitod.rathera curious thing happened. The miners nt the Granite struck
work, but tho muckers remained,while
nt iho Royal Onnndian all the men
went to work as usunl.
People who  came  into  town  from
Ymir on   yesterday  afternoon's  train
statetl tbat many of   the   miner- from
the Ymir mine   cnino   down   tho   hill
veaterday,   nud tbov also  stated  tbat
the   Tamarack men bud struck   work.
No oflioial confirmation of   these   tidings   could bo obtained in Nelson, but
the events of the  evening went far to
assure their truth.    The London &  R
0. Golrtftelds obartered a speoial train
yesterdny    evening, whioh   left    the
mountain depot  atl0i80  p. in,     On
board the train wero a  party of  speoial constables who wero  sworn in yesterdny.    Thoy wero tn-inji sent to   protect the Ymir  mill nnd  tramway.    It
wns not so much that tho company an-
tioipated violence,   bnt it was thought
that the moral effect would bo   powerful and tend   to   restrmn nny   lawless
individual who might be   inclined  to
violence.
AT SILVERTON.
Silverton, June 1. ���(Special)���The
Wnkofield, Emily Edith nnd the Bosun
mines closed down yesterday, the trouble nrisiug out of tho decreased wages
consequent upon tho eight hour law,
It wns known at euch of tho mines
thnt tho mon employed intended to
quit work if their wuges wore reduced
us throntened on tho 1st of .luno, nnd
in anticipation Of this, the owners or
their representatives took the mutter
into their own hands nnd closed operations.
The Vancouver is however, still oe>
ing oporated under the old scale of
wages, also the Essex, Noonday.
The Comstock hns been closed down
for some time nnd would bo closed in
nny event   until the Four Mile  (> "l,
missed Tumor aud culled upon Robert
Benven to form nn administration.
Beaven failed nud Molnnes states that
ho then sent for Joseph Martin, and
afterwards tor Senilin, the lnttar succeeding in forming a Government.
On tho 15th of October, Turner und
his colleagues npplied to the Dominion Government for a roynl commission tn Inquire into cortnin alleged
oharges which tho Governor mode
against them in connection with warrants nnd othor mutters which nre
now mutters of political history. On
January in last Molnnes replied to this
memorial for a roynl commission. His
letter, addri ssed to Lord Minto, com-
nrises some 11 or IS pages of type writing. Ho sots forth thnt since Sornlin
wns made Premier ho hud to fight six
elections, in five of which the Government wore successful,and four were
elected by acclamation. Turner hnd
saifl thnt ho would abide by tho will
of the people, nud the result wns nbun-
1 ti ti t evidence to warrant the stop
which the Governor of tho Province
hnd taken,
Tho Lieutenant-Governor submits
that he is not constitutionally obliged
to give all or nny reasons for dismiss
ing an outgoing ministry, but to the
incoming ministry to be prepared, if
culled on, to stnto nnd defend suoh reasons in Parliument. In regard to the
statements ill Ihe memorial thnt he
had laid n obarge against Turner nnd
his colleagues, Mclnuos states that
they givo no spocific date aud cite no
charge.
Although tho ministers wore attacked in the press of Canada and Great
Britain for the alleged nso of their
official position to tho furtherance of
private enterprises of a speculative
oharacter, yet, he culled for no interview with his advisors on the subject
nor referred to it in his official correspondence nnd tlii4 infneo of the fnot,
too, thnt stntements were mnde condemning one member of the administration who acted ns legul ndviser to a
Inrge railway corporation in the Prov-
inco in n suit opposed to tho Govern-
mon of which he wns n member.
Mclunes wns rendv to udmtt that lie
mnde stntements in his letter of August lTtth reflecting on the ofli ial conduct of Turner and Eberts. In conclusion Mclunes snys tbat he published
eituin correspondence in view of the
charge that he wns intriguing to secure the entrance of a relative into the
Ouibuet of tho Province. He considers thnt no specific charges have been
formulated for the facts adduced in
support thereof to give sufficient rea-
+m for the issuance of the royal commission. Here the correspondence
ends. .

Blomefontoin, Juno 1.���Among the
most important points thnt President
Paul Kruger of the Trnnsvnnl Republic nnd Sir Alfred Miluer, Governor
of Onpp Colony nnd the British High
Commissioner from South Africa will
have to discuss at their conference
horo in regnrd to the demands of the
Utilnnders will be the question of the
dyvunmite monopoly under which the
TJitlnnders nre groaning, and whioh
the British Secretory of Stnte for the
Colonies, Mr. Joseph Chamberlain has
used his utmost endeavors to remedy,
but tbo bluebook on the subject issued
tonight shows mntters in this connection hnve practically reached n deadlock. The bluebook opens with a letter from Mr. Chamberlain, dated 18th
of January review ing the whole question and protesting that the monopoly
wns inconsistent with the London
convention. To this tho Transvaal
Government replied nnder date of
March 9. contravening the arguments
of Mr. Chamberlain nnd stating that
Her MajcB y"s Government was not
entitled to the protest Mr. Chamberlain on April 31. however, renewed
the British protest, adding that Her
Majesty's Government reserved the
right. In answer tn this the Transvaal government replied on May 22
with two curt sentonens to tbe effect
that it abided with the views it ex
pressed iu its commnnnioation of

The following letter r ceived by The
Miner for publication   explains itself:
Creston, B. C. May 27, 1899.
To the Editor of The Miner:
Sir :���My attention has been called
to repented attacks upon tbo business
methods of Messrs. Foley Bros., Larson and Hnlverson which hnve recently
appenred iu n Nelson pnper. It seems
ouly fnir that some one conversant
with tbe facts should correct those
misstatements, as much for the sake
of disproving tbe implied imbecility
of Cnnadian snbeontraottors aud merchants ns to do justice to the contractors themselves.
Thoy are accused of bringing in
American outfits and contractors to the
exclusion of local firms. The truth is
thnt on the Robson-Peutiction work 91
per cent, nnd on the Bedlington aud
Nolsou all, of the contracts were let to
Canadian firms and those already established iu tbis country.
It is stated they bring everything
nsed on the work from the States. The
importations for the B. & N. sinco
January 1, 1899 constitute \% per cent
of the entire purchases during lhat
lime nnd since the beginning the percentage of imports is 9.8 per cent of
iho whole. Fifty and three-tenths
per ceut. wer<> i ^igbt in Nelson. The
figures for the C. & W. contract are
not now nvnilnble but would show no
material difference as goods were
bought there as hero and as Nelsou
merchants buy, viv where they cost
least.
It is said the subcontractors on the
B. & N. have been "required to
sign a cast-iron uereement, ono of tho
conditions of which is that they will
pnrcbaso all supplies from the contractors. This would be nn honorable
nud cnudid presentation of tbe sitnu-
tion were it not for tho following easily ascertainable facts.
First, no one of them hns over signed nny contract or agreement at all.
Second, tho oontracts it was intended
they should sign are practically identical with the one signed by tbo contractors themselves and the supply
question is providod for just as it bus
been in every contract ever tukeii by
tho firm, that is, it isn't mentioned!
Subcontractors buy at the company
store because it is impractical for euch
to maintain a supply department of
his own.
It is claimed these imaginary cast-
iron contrncts" wore signed first nnd
tho question of prices afterward���
which means that the subcontractors
bound themselves to do work at a given
price without thinking it worth while
to enquire what it wou'dcost. Asa
matter of faot, being men of affairs and
not children, each one asked aud learned the general range of prices to bo
paid as well as to be received and
ooncluded there was a fair margin
between them before a promise was
made or a blow struck.
The reasonabloneHS of theBO pricos
as a wbob could not be judged by
those wholly unacqnaintod with locnl
conditions from n few picked nuns
even if that few wore correct but
when, as in a recently published item
purporting to givo prices chnrgod subcontractors and thoBO for which we
ha^e disposed of ovorstoek to local
doalers.only three comparisons in four
teen are founded ou fact, the conclusions drawn can bo of littlo value.
Tbe author plainly points to tho infer
enoe that the subcontractors nro nil going broke. The bookB indicnto thnt
this conclusion at least is wrong for
several bave already realized a piotlt
while none are likely to loso aud, as a
wholo they will probably go off the
work with a greater net profit than

j Miner has reason to believe tbat Mr.
! Robertson, in this, fails to suggest
the real reason of tho gentleman's desertion. When fully revealed it will
bo found more honorable to Mr. Costi-1
gan than this would imply. The truth
is that the Government were contemptible enough to purchase his support
as the price for concealing his son's
disgrace. They took advantage of this
to win over the old man. It is not

Whether a business   coucern   of nny
nature that is   making   large   returns
should share its   profits with tho operatives, over   and  above   the   standaid
remuneration for tbeir labor,   may  be
an open qnestion.    It is one, however,
thnt cannot properly be introduced into
the  discussion    over   tho   eight-hour
law.    The lender of the working  minors, in his interview   at Sandon   pub
liahod in The   Minor yesterday, drags
it in in order   to  strengthen his argument in favor  of tbe long pay for  the
short   day.    "I   am   unwilling to believe,"   he says, "that   the mines  of
this district,   presumably   the  richest
silver-lead producers in tbe world, are
operated at suoh a small margin of profit that   a   very material   reduction in
wages   is   nrcessifated."   By  this  is
meant that the profits   are   so   liberal
that tho mine  owners can well   afford
to pay the old wage.    And then he instances the War Eagle as an example of
generosity in tbis respect.
If all the properties in the Slocnn in
which   operatives are employed were
producing mines, and yielding profits,
Mr. Wilks would probably be justified
iu raising   the question.    That is,   if
they wore all War   Eagles they might
with some show of reason De  expected
to follow tbe example of tbo War Eagle.
But they nre   not.    Only a small proportion   of   them are even   producing
mines. The great majority are in process   of  development,    during  which
it is all outlay and no intake.    Some of
thera will in   time become   producing
mines,   with   profitable   returns;   but
many of them, as we all know by the
experiences that have gone  before, are
liable to  turn  out   indifferently   and
mav he abandoned. It is obviously unreasonable, therefore, to   introduce the
question raised by Mr. Wilks.
It is not what the few paying mines
oan do or ought to do. over and above
giving a fair day's pay for a fair day's
work; the hardship is in insisting
that Mr. Wilks's principle should be
made to apply to tbe more numerous
properties tbat have not ret passed
their development stage. These in
many oases are being worked by small
companies or individuals who find it
all they can do to struggle through
under the most favorable circumstances. Increase their outlay to any
appreciable extent, ard many of them
would no doubt bo very seriously em
barrassud. Tbe circumstances of the
War Eagles, tbe Paynes, and the Le
Rois are not to settle thn question precipitated by the ouht-hour law. They
may employ a large number of men,
but it is the more widely distributed
array of operatives who are engaged in
developing properties that should decide
as to the adoption of the principle.
And in condaidering these the miners
should be disposed to take a reasonable
view of the matter���would do so, we
have no doubt, if left to their own
sense of fair play.
Dr. Doolittle has scorod his first
victory in tho race for a gas franchise
in Rossland. Mr. Coutes was already
on tho ground, and wns thought to
have a majority of the Council pledged
to support his application; the expectation was that it would bo voted at tho
meeting Wednesday night. But Dr.
Doolittle has persuaded the Council
to postpone consideration for three
weeks, by which time his upplication
will be in shape. The Council cannot
do better than to smile on the Dootor
all through.

While in the Government employ,
nnd no doubt with the promise of the
OoinmisKionorship of the Yukon
somewhere in bis pockets, Mr. Ogilvie
gave exclusive information to a mining company that was being promoted
in London. Tbe fact came one through
the company's prospectus, in which it
was stated as bluntly as could be desired that the company had been able
to enlist tbe interest of this great authority on the Yukon. The intelligence caused a stir at tbe time. Tbe
crime was not a heinous one, although
the most moderate opinion insisted
that Mr.Ogilvio's position should have
prevented him from mixing himself
up with company promoters. It was
regarded so seriously, however, that
the olaquours and organs of the Gov
eminent party thought it necessary to
come to his defenoe and that of the
Department that employs bim, and
they hastened with one voice to declare that it was a misrepresentation
and that Mr. Ogilvie was innocent.
The other day in the Honse the Minister laid on tbe table Mr. Ogilvie's
explanation, without reading it, however. But it came out, and was found
to l-o a very frank confession of the
thing charged against him. He did
supply the oxclusivu information, with
much valuable advice as to local inns
and business arrangments. But the exposure will have no influence on the
(oralis, whioh will go on lying on the
next occasion just the same.
There hns been muoh disenssion over
the   Costigan    defection.     It   was   the

Garnerville, N. Y., June 1.���Marion
Clark, the 21 months old infant kid
napped from her parents,Mr. and Mrs.
Arthur Clarke of New York city, on
May 81, has been found two miles
south of Slontsbuig, a village nbout
eight miles from here. She wns found
at the farm house of Charles Youniat s.
and was in the custody of Mrs. .Teuuie
Wilson who took the baby to that plnce
during the early part of last week.
Mrs. Wilson was accompanied by her
husband and stated to Mrs. Youmnns
that she wanted board for the littlo
girl for the summer. Mrs. Wilson Kaid
she had made arrnugemraents with her
husband to send all correspondence to
hor by way of tbe St. John's post-
office which is a few miles from
Kloatsburg. Mrs. Wilson called at tbe
St. John's rost office n number of
times during tbe past few dnys.
Yesterday morning Mrs. Wilsou
went to tho postotlice nud taking Marion with her as she had done on several occasions before, Mrs. Carry, the
postmistress delivered to her only one
letter, tho Clark babv attracted the
country people by its appearance. Her
large blue eyes and pink complexion
being particularly beautiful. The curiosity which the child aroused made
her captors grow uneasy and they kept
her closely confined at tho Youman
house. As soon ns the notices of the
abduction reached the neighborhood
tbe people began to suspect thnt tho
child was Marion Clark. Thoy were
positive of it because the child vtove
the same clothes ns at the time when
she was stden.
As soon as Deputy Sheriff William
H. Charleston learned of the abduction
he. taking bis cue from pictures of the
child and the description given him by
the people who saw her, went to the
Youman farm house nud found Mrs.
Wilson, from whom he demanded tho
obild. Mrs. Wilson at onco became indignant and claimed she knew nothing whatever of the child previous to
going to the house, the deputy sheriff
had procured a warrant for the arrest
of Mrs. Wilson for abduction, he pro-
ducod the warrant, arrested the woman
and demanded informntion us to tho
whereabouts of the child. At tbis Mrs.
Wilson weakened and made a confession. The baby was then producer" and
tho Bheriff took both to Magistrate
Herbert at West Hnvorstrad, where
tbe child is now awating the arrival of
her father, who has been notified.
Mrs. Wilson refuses to make a full
statement. Sho is the daughter of
Mrs. J. McNally of Goschen, N. Y.,
to whom sho wrote a letter explaining her plight. Marion Clark tho infant is in good henlth and seems to he
contented. Sho has no hat and hor
shoes show much rougblbandling. Her-
clothing is also much soiled. The

JJRY  NOT   OUT  LONG
Tlio Tobacco Plains Murder Case Decided
in Nelson Yesterday After a
Short Trial.
At tho court house today the cuso ot
John W. Phillips tried ou the nharge
ol' murdering the teamster linwlf wns
held, and after n thorough sifting a
verdict of not guilty was reuderod.
The Father nf the prisoner, a ninn
Well known ami respeoted throughout
tho Kootenays was present throughout
the trial on which his sou's life depended, and at tho end reoaivad the
congratulations of many friends and
acquaintencoR who wero present, and
who rejoiced w:th him ovor tho (louring of his sou's name.
Deputy Attorney General McLean
represented tho Orown while Mr. Hnr-
vey of Fort Steele, wits tor the defence Tho stiry of the prisoner which
was corroborated on nearly every
point was that while he was herding
horses with nn Indian companion,
Panl.Bawlf came along the road winch
thoy were about 160 yards Irani and
called thorn. They did not go at first
hut finally wont ovor, Bawlf wanted
to gut twu horses. Phillips, who docs
not sptak English did not want to let
thetn havo the horses, hut the offer of
half a dollar proving too strong an
inducement to Paul, who gave his
consent, Pnillins finally assented and
got oft' the horse ho wns ridiug and
they took Paul's horse also.
About midnight thoy returned, evidently the wmse for liq-.ior. Paul asked Knwlf for the half (iolh.r.but Bawlf
said ho would only give himaquarter.
Paul then asked for a drinls of whiskey as well as the quarter, but Bawlf
then said ho would givo him nothing
at al'.
They talked for a a time, then
Phillips called to Paul and told him to
get hiH gloves and come away and leave
thorn as Baulf wns growing angry.
Paul start'd to look fur his gloves, and
Bawl! askod him what ho was looking
for and on receiving an answer
thought the Indian said : "A club."
Han If then pulled otf his coat aud
ran at Paul who made for Phillips.
who Wits holding tho two horses, nud
ran between him and the horses.
Bawlf made towards Phillips who
struck him with his open hand on the
chin, knoofcius, him backwards to the
ground. Hawif's companion then ran
away and meeting a policeman told
him. '1 he Grown witnesses, Bawlf's
companions, endeavored to prove that
Philips hnd drawn the revolver
which he wore at his si le for shooting
deer, and stunk Bawlf on the head
Willi it, but the weight nf ovidence
went to show that he had not toucher!

Mr. Gordon, Custom's collector at
Tobaocn Plains, and Mr. 0. M. Ed-
war is, formerly mining, ro<order at
Fort Steele, both testified to young
Phillips reputation as a peacable aud
Industrious vouth and his general good
character.
The Indian Paul, who was Philipps'
companion, corroborated the prisoners
testimony. After the summing up
of the evidence given on both sides by
tho Judge, the jury retire 1, aud after
a very short interval reappeared, with
a verdict of "Nit Guiltv."
All present seemed pleased with the
verdict. as Phillips told a very
straight for ward story.
Last night the reunited father and
sen wero preparing to return to the

A VERY FUNNY COMEDY.
"Running    for   Congress"  Presented
nt the Opera House  Last Evening.
It w(is Mr. Kelly's turn at the Opera
House lrisf. night. He was the central figure in the comedy, "Running
for Congress" and made tho most of
the very l'unuy part. He is a capital
oome'liau and never fails to produce a
laugh. Mr. Bittner was also very good
as tho private secretary while Mr.
Waldrou was pleasing in tho light part
of Col. Murray. Mr. Fredericks as
the amorous politician was satisfactory. Miss Ohoato was the wronged
wife again for the fourth time this
week. The narts while they have been
