$111)0 a Day   Prom June 1.
Tho following announcement from
the mine owners of the Slocan bus
beeu minded to The Miner for publication :
Owing to tho action of the British
Columbia Legislature in enforcing tbe
eight hour law in the Slocau.the silver-
lead Mine Owners of the District consider that they owe it to their employees, who aro affected by tho change
tendered necessary hy the operatiou
of the Aot, to place their intentions
with regard to it ou record.
In tho first plaoe, the miue owners
of this District were uot consulted in
any way aa to this radical change in
the mining law, aud on being informed of the passage of the Act, made
overy effort iu their power to havo the
law held iu abeyance until it could
he oarefnlly considered by thoso interested.
It wus pointed out that the standard
rate of wages for miners, $il.5u for a
ten-hour shift, was as high us paid
anywhere iu tho United Slates or
Canada, and tbat this rate was satisfactory to both miner owners and employes.
it was further poiuted out that by
r*;dn *;m' *h* Jjpuri of work flail) t***i
ro eight Boui'S tiio wage earning ca-
paoity of the miner would be more
Ulan proportionate!, reduced us far us
ihe mine owners aro concerned.
To givo greater force and unanimity
to the expressed opinion of the mine
owners, a meeting of the (Silver-Lead
Miue Owners' Association of British
Columbia, wus convened in order lo
get an expression of opiuiou about
which there would bo no   uncertainly.
The purpose of this Association is to
foster and protect tho mining niteresis
of the Province, and it is not iu uuy
sense a combination of employers
against employes, as the relations between tho wage earners and the employe! s huve always beeu niosi
friendly, und it is hoped will so continue.
The miue owners wero for their pail,
quite willing to contiuuo to pay ��,1.50
lor ten hours work, hut the enforce,
ment of tbo eight hour law having rendered tins impossible, tbey now otfer
to pay miners at the rate of $3,00 per
eight-hour shift, this rate being
higher in proportion to tbo hours
worked than the old rute.
To give effect to this Intention,a resolution was passed at the meeting 01
the Silver-Lead Mine Owners' Association held in Sandon on Muy tho 8th, as
���'Thut it is tho sense ot iheMmo Representatives of this Association   thut
tlio standard rate of  wages  paid  to
Minors be in future $;j.UU por day  of
eight hours. "
This resolution wus signed by tbe
representatives of the mines whose
names are hereto appended.
Theso miues wish to state that us
the eight hour law is to bo enforced
not later thau June tho 12th, lliey are
ready to hire miners on and after
Juno 1st, ul tho above rale.    Aud tbey
further wish  it to be understood thai

ibe consequent contraction of the
-v*,iigooutning capacity of iho miner,
was forced upon them by tho Aot of

unsought for by them,

Washington, May 18. ���War Department ollicials ara (irmly convinced
that tho ond of the insurrection in the
Philippines is at hand, and that the
representatives of the insurgent cabinet and of Aguinaldo who ure to meet
General Otis tomorrow will succumb
lo the inevitable nud surrender.
Their forces it is said, at the Department, evideulty aro so demoralized bv
the persistent advance of the Ameri
cans, that they nro ready to accop.
peace on the besif terms they can obtain. Drivni northward to tho foothills of mountains, as tbey have heen,
they are flying and scattered forces,
and discontented and disheartened, uo

Less than a week ago, General Luna
was reported ]ust uorth of San Fernando, where General McArthnr's
*roops are concentrated, and in the
neighborhood ot Bacolor, wilh about
0,000 rebels. Today General Otis reports that tho remnant of this foroe
about 3,SOD men, hns withdrawn to
Tarlac, over twenty miles north of San
Fernando. It is probable that tbo remainder of this force moved east and
���joined tho main body of the insurgents
'���.>���!*,.*': abandoned Sau Isidoroyesterday
and lid northward to the point from
which Agninaldo is now sending his
commission! rs to sue for pence. If
this is a ruse to gain time, which none
of the ollicials at the War Deportment
believe, it wll avail thorn nothing, as
the Americans will utilfze Hie period
during the negotiations in reconnoiter-
ing fbe country ahead of them, urepar-
fory to the resumption of operations
the minute the negotiations fail.
The 2'lrd Infantry which yesterday
took Jolo. the principal town in the

expedition detached from the main
body of the troops at Manila. The

islands extending ill the form of a
crescent liko tho Aleutian Islands,
south of tbo Philippines. Thoro are
no insurgents as fur as known in the
Suln group. Tho population of the
islands consist of aborigines, Chiuese
and negroes.
There is nn absolute information nl
the War Department concerning the
present strength "f the American force
under MaoArthur and Lawton nnd
Kobbe which have been operating
against tho insurgents north of Manila. The number of men if ea-'h organization were up to its maximum
strength would bo 16,600, bnt it is
doubtful if tbeir strength totals 11,000
men. MacArthiir's troops, except one
regiment, are volunteers. All of
Knlibe's men nre regulars recently nrrived Three of six regiments under
Lawton nre als.i regulars, There is
one difference between volunteer nnd
rogulnr organizations. Losses in Ihe
former uro permanent, while tho gaps
in lhe ranks of the regulars aro being
constantly filled by new' recruits. It is
estimated tbat Mac Arthur has about
4.500 men for active service. Lawton
about 6,000 and Kobbe about 1,600.

at least the enterprise will not oost
the ratepayers a cent, and the City
will get a largo industry that will bo
the meaus ot supporting a considerable addition to the population. It is
true we had the extraordiuary aud heretofore undreamt of spectacle of tho City
Council cnrofully legislating to* provide that the people should uot have
cheap gas; but that was due to the
fad or municipal ownership, iu submission to which a former Council thought
it incumbent ou them to invest in an
electric light plant. The present Aldermen thought they were obliged to
protect the purchase by stipulating
for a very high minimum rate. The
Miner will forever after eschew prophesy if, before tho expiratiou of the
franchise, the citizens of Nolsou do uot
wish that they had voted instead to
pitch their eleotric works into the
Lake. As it is, however, better high
minimum gas thau uo gas, and as we
are getting coke works with it the
City on the whole will be a substan
tial gainer by ronson of the urrango-
meut. The by-law will probably be
voted without opposition. The works
will help very largely to lift Nolson
into a Crty of growing importance,
and that is what we all want. It is
riding today on tho crest of a vory considerable wave of prosperity, and it
should be the effort of all of us to keep
it there as loug aud as  far as possible.
thi Immigration Depart ment at Ottawa will not go wrong if it takes a
quiet quarter of an hour beforo breakfast to consider whether it has not
now enough of these people, for tho
preseut at least.
A questiou of civic by-laws is ulso
agitating our neighboring City of Rossland. There thoy are voting on two,
one for money to improve tho streets,
and the othar to purchase and enlarge
the present water and light works. For
the latter purpose a sum of $150,000 is
required. There is very little objection to the street by-law, but the opposition to the other is rathor formidable aud threatens to ho too powerful
for it. Thero is a widely prevailing
opinion that the price to be paid for
the works is excossivo, while another
considerable section of ratepayers profess to believe tbat the sorvico should
be continued as a private enterprise
for somo timo louger. Wo can, of
as it does not concern Nelsou, aud at
auy rato tho circumstauces are uot sulli-
ciently understood to warrant a judgment iu the case. Fortunately there
are no grave objections of similar
nature to the by-laws here. Both tbe
wnter nnd light works are already
owned by tho corporation, and what
the ratepayers uro asked to do is to
vote money enough to make them efficient Unless efficient there is little
use in having them. Tho people quite
understand this, aud as the whole
mutter losolvos itself into a simple
business proposition they havo no (liiliculty in deciding how to vote. The
only opposition comes from a faction
who desire to defeat all the by-laws,
in the hope that thoy will obtain
control at the next municipal election
and then havo lhe raising and spending
of llio money in thoir own hands,
It will be a great disappointment
fo the poncil sketohers aud calculators
to learn that the Redistribution Bill
does not affect British Columbia.
Those who took such pains to give
pointers to Mr. David Mills, in response to his request for information
and suggestions, will wonder what
it all means. But this perplexity will
be as nothing in comparison with the
feeling of relief aud contentment that
will suffuse all Victoria ut tho knowledge that for one more electiou at
least it will have its two members.

Nolson, British Columbia, May 17,
The tramway peoplo have driven a
good bargain. They havo little reason.
indeed, to 00mplain of the conditions
of tho franchise thoy uro ubout to have
conferred upon them. If they did not
get all they asked it was because thoy
asked moro than they know would be
given them, iu order that they might
appear gracious and uniinblo by yielding a point now and then. At tho same
time it is only fair and right to suy
that the Aldermen did hotter than publio opinion demanded of them. If they
hnd listeuod to tho populur talk they
would have voted blindly evory thing
that was required of them. Instead of
this thoy insisted on conditions that,
on tho whole, make as good a bargain
as could reasonably ho oxpoctod under
the circumstances. It would be an
easy matter to criticise and pick
holes in a number of tbo clauses; but
Nelson is not a largo Oity yet, and as

All Arrangements Ave Concluded, and the
Affair  Promises to   Be  a
       Great Success.
Tbe Library Bull takes plaoe this
evening. It is un event which has
been looked forward to for some time,
and tho indications now uro that it
will be a huge success Last night
there was a meeting of the general
committee iu the Opera House and the
final arrangements wore made. Decorating such a big and bnro place is a
largo proposition, but it is progressing
well, and by this evening the houso
will presont a very pretty scene. The
tickets are being soltl rapidly, and Ihe
indications nre thnt the attendance
will bo a large one, but as the tlancirg
spneo is also large there will he no
crush. The reasonable price of tickets,
two dollars, for gentlemen, und one
dollar for ladies, makes it possible for
all to attend and tho worthy object to
which the funds will bo devoted is another incentive to purchasers of tickets.
This morning all those who so kindly
promised to provide provisions are requested to send them to the Opera
Houso so that they will be in plenty
of time to be properly arranged and
placed on the tables. The refreshment committee bus met with very en-
oouragingjsuooess in providing delicacies for the supper. All the ladies and
gentlemen on the general comniilt e
aro requested to be at the Opera House
a? soon after luncheon as possible today. There will bo threo or four
hours' work in placing tho furniture
in position nml putting the finishing
touches on tbe decoratious. This work,
of coarse, must, be done and peoplo
must be there to do it, so it is hopet1
thut nil the members of the committees will be on hnnd.
The entrance this evening will be
ou Ward slreet where a largo light
will be over the door. Tho main en-
trnuoe will bo closed. The door to be
used will take tho guests into tho
dressing rooms without making it necessary for them to go through the hull
room. The first dunce will be played at 9 o'clock. Everyouo is request-
ed to have tho ticket ready before the
door is readied.
Enough  Powder     Storod  Across
Kiver to   Destroy  Ntlson.
There tloes not seem to be much use
of drawing the attention of tho Pro-
vueial Government to any grievance
in Nelson. It mny bo that other ministers besides Mr. Hume, "havo it iii
for Nelsou" or it may be that they
are so discouragedjwith their failure nt
mining legislation, of which the
eight hour law is au evideneo, thnt
thoy are afraid of doing anything
else that effects this district for fear ot
a general explosion. It is just this explosion that Nelsou ueoplu fear, and if
the Provincial Government would see
that their laws nre carried out tie
danger of tho explosion would disappear.
In the powder magazine directly
across the river from the City there
are stored at present 4b tous of dynamite and six tons of black powder. The
law stales thut. no powder is to be
stored within two miles of uu incorporated town or Village, Vet this serious menace to life and property in
Nelson is allowed to exist without
any effort being made to remove it.
The awful consequences of nn explosion are bind to contemplate. It
would destroy every Jbuilding in Nelson and would probably kill every in-
hnbitnut of tho City. Something
might happen auy minute to cause an
explosion as the danger is real and
not imaginary. The question will be
brought before tbe grand jury nt tbe
npprtmohing assize, und tbe indictment
of nil thoso iu anyway responsible for
the dynamite aud powder being tin re
will not be an improbable result of tho
graud jury's investigation.
The Merchants There Are Not Placing
Thoir  Usual Ordors.

merchant of Silverton, wns in the City
yesterday, aud was interivewed by a
Miner reporter us to the feeling in the
Hloean regarding tl-e eight hour question. Ho saitl thut the legislation oame
ns a groat surpriso to everyone in the
Slocan, and that, several miners hnd
told him personally that thoy pieferrtd
the old regime of $8.60 for 10 hours,
to $3.00 for eight, or to an Interruption in thoir work.
Although he was au uctivo supporter
of Mr. Green in tho Inst general election, Mr. Hunter appeared to strongly
deprecate the roconf, eight hour legislation. He snid that before this came
everything pointed to a mst prosperous summer iu the Slooan, but now
none knew what would happen. If
tho minors accepted tho mine owner's
offer of $3.00 all might yet be well,
but. a strike would throw tho country
back terribly. Already the uncertainty
was having Its effects. The merchants
in the Slocan wore not nrdoring.nl any
rate not ou their usual scale,for four of
being left with largo stocks unsaleable.
Business men do not act thus out. of
sentiment, and suoh an action spunks
louder than anything elso as to tho
harm done by oven tbo fear of a conflict between labor and capital.

A great deal of development work
with the most encouraging results is
being douo ID the ,St. Mary's district
Of East Kootenny. Steady work has
been prosecuted all winter ou the
olainis operated by the Pyramid Kootenay Syudicato on Pyramid Creek,
���whose B. C. representative^ Captain
Petty. Adjoining these is the Blue
Peter on Alki Creek, on which some
80 feet of work has been doua. This
claim belongs to Mr Pollen,Jwho leaves
in the morning to resume work. The
claims belouging to tho Pyramid Copper Syndicate were also worked all last
summer with satisfactory results,
and work will be resumed on them at
an early date. The oro on these
claims is coppor and pynhotite. There
are two distinct series of ledges
through that part of the country, one
consisting of copper, pyrrhotite and
quartz, und the other of copper, galena
and oalcite. The Government is building a trail, which branches up from
the trail from Fort Steele to Pilot Bay
through the Wliiro Grouse country,
coming out to the lake again at Stinky.
The Government last year also built
several miles of a wagon road that runs
up into tho St. Mary's country to the
Sullivan group near tho North Sim-
mine. A considerable amount ofwork
is also being done on a number of
claims on Crawford Creek, 011 White
Fish Oreek and on the side of St
Mary's Lako. A great deal of work-
has beeu done on tho Sullivan group
whieh is about 14 miles east of the
properties first, mentioned, while the
North Star adjoining may be called a
mine. It belongs to Mackenzie &
Mann, and a branch line is ro bo uni't
to it from Cranbrook. The ore in the
two latter properties is a galena, and
of good grade as may bo judged from
tho fact that considerable North Star
ore has been shipped by wagon IN
miles to tho Kootenay river aud thence
to American smelters, and then has
yielded handsome profits.

As the nnnoucemont has been wade
that the Government of British Columbia purpose forcing the Amendment
to tho Metalliferous Mines Inspection
Aot, making eight hours a working
day for those employed underground
in metalliferous mines; Soc. 18.���"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 tho two parties mainly
affected, consider it advisablo to make
public their views ou the situation
created by this uncalled for legislation,
nnd to indicate what their liuo of action must inevitably bo.
While the undersigned are determined to respect and adhere to tho laws of
the Province, it may be pointed out
that this law is far reaching In the
injuries it must inllirt upon the mining InteieatS of the Province, and on
the amount of wages earned by tinmen.
It means reducing the hours of labor
in the mini's from 20 hours a day to
Hi hours, as many of the mini's are so
circumstanced that three shifts cannot be -worked to advantage, This
means a reduotion of 211 per cent ill
the amount of llin prinliiclitin of many
mi es, autl a reduction of 20 per eenl
iu the development work being carried on in tho mines preparing for
prodnotion and a reduotion in the supplies used in Die mines.
The most amicable relations existed, and still exist, between the em
plovers and employed at the mint's.
The men wero earning good wages,
equal to any being paid in camps in
lhe United States, nud higher than
thoso paid in many,and thoy woro rendering good   services for tliesn   wages.
If anv discontent was rife at the existing state of affairs, it was not generally known. It is therefore deeply
to be   regretted   that   tho   Legislature
has seo fit disturb tho existing harmony, to Interfere with the growing
prosperity of Iho mining dletrfotS,
to reduce tho wages earning power of
the men employed, nnd to interfere
wilh the free light of contract hitherto enjoyed,
As to the future, aftor the 1st of
June next, at the mines represented
hy the undersigned, the standard rati*
of wages that will be paid tt) skilled
minors for au eight, hours working flay
���will bo three dollars ($8.00), anil othor
labor will necessarily be also paid for
according to the time worked.
