PROMISING
PROPOSITION
Producing Mine to Start In
Great Free Milling
Belt.
Chance for Nelson Merchants
to Divert Money to This
City.
I On the 15th of May a producing
mine will be located on the great
free-milling belt which stretches for
miles west of Nelson. The event
means much to the district as, despite
the known richness of the section in
question, no property has yet reached
the bullion-producing stage with the
exception of the Granite-Poorman and
Athabasca, which are in the immediate vicinity of the city. The property referred to. is the Yellow Jacket
group on Champion creek, owned and
operated by the Onondaga Mines,
Limited, of which Louis Will, the
millionaire wax manufacturer of Syracuse, N. Y., is the president and
largest' stockholder. Thirty days
from the present time the company
will have
A MODERN STAMP MILL
with a ten-stamp battery-crushing
ore. Over 5,000 tons of. ore are in
sight In the mine at the present time
and the reserve is being constantly
increased as development work proceeds. Exhaustive tests of tbe ore
indicate that the average values will
be 820 per ton and milling tests place
the cost of mining and. milling at
���3.50 to 155 per ton. The company
has, therefore, one of the most promising propositions in the district and
the successful outcome of their operations will do more for the section in
which the property is located than
could be accomplished in years by
other methods. The stock is held exclusively by the New York men who
organized the company and none of
the shares have ever been traded in.
It is now just about a year since the
company commenced operations in the
Champion creek country. A bond was
taken on
THE YELLOW JACKET GROUP
which comprises six claims. The
bond was at 800,000, and before tbe
transaction was completed the company spent 830,000 in exploring the
property. Then the purchase was
made and last fall a stamp mill was
started. The plant was purchased
from the Jenckes Machine company
and the first installments passed
through Nelson last fall. Adverse
weather conditions delayed the work
far beyond the period estimated, but
the mill building operations have
gone ahead steadily until at the present time tbe mill is almost ready ts
start work. The Minor is informed
that the first ore will be passed
through the mill before the 15th of
May. The plant ia modern in every
respect, including a double concentration apparatus which the company
anticipates will save the maximum
percentage of values without an additional process. The mill Is constructed of white pine and fir cut on the
company's property with
A SAWMILL
erected last fall. The plan followed
in putting up tbe buildings admits of
tbe addition ot another ten-stamp
battery at any time. The other buildings on tbe property are substantially
and comfortably constructed.
At tbe mine work U being carried
on constantly. Within the past few
weeks a rich strike was made in the
main lower tunnel,where an ore ohute
was encountered that surpassed in
richness tbe most sanguine estimates
of tbe management. The main tunnel
Is Intended to tap three of the six
claims in the group and the ore chute
occurred on tbe Maud S. claim, flie
ore on the foot and hanging walls
was freely epilnklod with free gold
and the body is continuous so far as
work has prooeeded. In the other
workings splendid ore occuried and
tbe company is thoroughly satisfied
with the outlook. In connection with
the Onondaga Mines there is a matter
which
THE HOARD OF TRADE
or the Wholesale Merchants'   association might very   properly   look   into.
At  present the conditions are  sueb
that all the custom from the mine
goes to Rossland, the outlet being at
Waterloo. The payroll at the mine
ranges from 111,500 to 85,000 per
month, miners receiving 83.50 and
muckers 83 per day. The crew will
be increased after the mill is in operation a couple of months and this
money could readily be diverted to
Nelson. What is wanted is a ferry
across the river at the mouth of Kootenay rivcr_and a C. P. R. spur on the
other side. The company Is prepared
to go ahead at once with improvements to the road leading to this
point at an estimtedj outlay of 8800
to 81,000 although twice this sum has
been expended in the last twelve
months for improving the Waterloo
road to permit of machinery being
hauled to the mine. With the outlet
for the mine at the mouth of the Kootenay the mine would be within
AN HOUR'S RUN
from Nelson; and it is safe to predict
the bulk of the businees would come
this way, in addition to which the
additional trade of properties which
are safe to he opened after the success
of the Yellow Jacket is assured,
would be secured to Nelson. Louis
Will will be here a couple of months
hence when this matter will be taken
under advisement, but if in the meantime something could be done to secure these facilities a very substantial
sum would be distributed monthly in
Nelson whicli now goes  elsewhere.
MOLLY GIBSON TO RESUME
WORK WILL RE STARTED THREE
WEEKS HENCE ON THE FIFTH
LEVEL OF MINE.
COMPANY'S OBLIGATIONS   TO RE
PAID TODAY-TREATMENT
MATTER  SOLVED.
Work will bo started at the Molly
(lihsori mine three weeks hence and
wilt be' continued, according .to the
management, as tong as the ore holds
out which means for years. This is
the outcome of the conference of the
principal officials of the Molly Oibson
company which closed yesterday.
Colonel Ray left last night for Rossland and W. J.Christie left this morning for his home in Winnipeg.
A contract will be let for 200 feet of
tunnelling on the fifth level now in
100 feet. This level commences on the
Molly Gibson claim and will tap the
leads on other claims in the group
including the rich Aspen lead on
which the company banks heavily.
The present depth of snow on the hill
prevents operation being commenced
at once but it is believed that with
ordinary weather the work can commence three weeks from the present
time. The contractor will be required to work two shifts and to expedite
the work as much as possible. In
addition the company will carry on
other work so that n fair sized crew
will be employed all summer. The
programme of development work
mapped out will require three months
or thereabouts for Its completion, after which the problem of treatment
will bo grappled with, the management having decided to defer this
matter until it iB finally determined
what quantity and quality of ore is
available.
Mr. Christie spent five days at the
mine with a couple of engineers, incidentally being caught in tlie big
snowfall wihch fell from five to seven
feet at the Molly Gibson. On his return last night he informed The Miner that the ore at present In sight in
the workings would aggregate 8400,
000 and represented a net profit of
8150,000 at a very conservative estimate. The extension of the fifth
levol would, if the company's estimate
proved accurate, open up the ore bodies in the mine sufficiently to increase
the aggregate values in sight to over
a million dollars. In view of this the
company had deferred deciding on
treatment until the* .work was completed. The obligations now outstanding against the company would,
he said, be wiped off the slate today
and the property would start with a
clean sheet. He was thoroughly satisfied with the outlook for the future.
The happy conclusion of the Molly
Gibson incident will be gratifying to
every citizen of Nelson, the property
being regarded as one of the biggest
propositions in the Nelson camp
proper.
SIFTON MURDER  TRIAL.
London, Ont., April tl.���Criminal

BIG- FIRE
AT OTTAWA
Russell   Theatre   Destroyed
and the Hotel Badly
Damaged.
Loss Estimated at $100,000.
Narrow Escape of Hotel
Guests.
Ottawa, Apiil 0.���The fire which
started in the Russell hpuse block at
1:45 this morning destroyed the Russell theatre, one of the finest playhouses in Canada, and damaged the
Russell house, one of the principal
hotels in this city, before the fire
men succeeded in gaining control over
the flames. These buildings, with
two others, occupy the blook bounded
by Queen, Elgin, Canal and Sparks
streets. The total loss is estimated
at 8100,000.
The fire spread to the hotel rapidly
and iorced some 200 guests to make
their escaou in their night clothes.
To add to the confusion the electric
lights were out, leaving the hotel in
total darkness. AH the guests escaped, however, without injury. "The
Helle of New York" opera company
played in the theatre last night and
what scenery anil costumes had been
left in the building were lost. The
company leaves the city this morning,
and some of their effects had been
sent to the depot. Besides the hotel
and theatre the block contained the
office of the Free Tress, and another
portion of it was occupied with offices.
The loss on these is small.
TEE SUMMER PROGRAMME
C.   P.    R.   PLANS   FOR   WORK ON
LINE FROM NELSON TO
ROBSON.
AN    APPROPRIATION    OF    8100,000
MADE TO OO   IN IMPROVEMENTS.
The C. P. R. will commence at once
their programme of summer woik on
the line from Nelson to Robson. The
contract for the work has been let to
W. P. Tierney A Co., who did the
work on the same section last year.
A. MePhail, a member of the firm,
leaves today with several cars of
plant and stock for West Robson,
where the first camp will be located.
About 30,000 yards of earth work Is
to be done to complete the west approach to the new bridge aoross the
Columbia river. In a day or two another camp will be located at the first
rock cut abont a mile west of the
city. Work at other points will be
got under way. Mr. Tierney informed The Miner ycsterdiy that within a
short time the firm would have well
on to 100 men at work.
The C. P. R. is stated to have made
an appropriation of 8100,000 for Im
proving the line between Nelson and
Robson and this sum is likely to be
further increased by the labor on tlie
now bridge at Kootenay Crossing
which is to be done this year. The
amount distributed at the new bridge
over the Columbia swells the aggregate sum to be disbursed in wages in
the immediate vicinity of Nelson this
year to close on 8300,000. Tbe Improvements to the Nelson-Robson section, as stated by Western General
Manager Whyte on his recent visit
to Nelson, in anticipation of the inauguration of a through service between Nelson and the Boundary next
year, when heavier engines and rolling stock will be used.
ONTARIO LEGISLATURE
Resumes After Easter Recess���Routine
Business Transacted.
(SPECIAL TO THE MINER.)
Toronto, April 0.���'Reassembling
after Easter recess, the legislature
transacted a good deal of routine business today and gave promise of a
conclusion this week. The premier
introduced a bill to extend the duration of the present legislature long
enough into 1902 to enable the session
to be concluded next winter. This

election.. ... ......

will answer the purpose desired by
the element whicli has made application for a portfolio of mines even
more amply than a portfolio would.
Altogether Mr. Taylor was Impressed
with the fact that the minister of
the interior was thoroughly alive to
the interests of this section of the
west and that he would leave no
stone unturned to secure for the mining industry the fullest measure of encouragement possible.
S. S. Taylor, K. C, has returned
from Ottawa, whither he went to attend the sittings of the supreme _ourt
of Canada and also as an accredited
representative of the Nelson board of
trade to impress upon the administration the necessity of subsidizing the
mining industry. The nature of Mr.
Taylor's duties did not enable him to
remain at the capital until the remaining members of the Kootenay
delegation arrived but in the time at
his disposal'he acted "off his own
bat," as it were", In interviewing several of tho ministers with a view to
preparing the ground for the delegation in order that on their arrival
they might be spared the trouble of
arranging interviews and other preliminaries which would, under ordinary circumstances, occupy much time
that could otherwise be employed to
advantage.
The results of Mr. Taylor's inter-
Mews were most satisfactory and lead
him to believe that the
GOVERNMENT WILL ACT
in accord with the wishes of the
people of this province. Hon. Clifford Sifton took especial interest in
the proposition and had already acquired a mo.t comprehensive giaspof
the situation. Prior to Mr. Taylor's
arrival at Ottawa the minister of the
interior had several expert mining
men before him and had secured a
wealth ot information on the subject
of mining and refilling. Mr. Sifton
put the matter frankly, stating thai
one of the difficulties to be overcome
was that of convincing his colleagues
in the house that the subsidy was
actually as important as was claimed
for it. The large and representative
delegation now en route east would
have the effect of impressing on the
cabinet the interest with which the
mining and business interests of the
Kootenays viewed the matter.
The   administration     had   not    of
course, committed   itself   on the sub
sidy   question   but if  straws  showed
which way the wind set, a  remark on
the floor of ths house would be
REGARDED AS SIGNIFICANT.
Hon. William Patterson, minister of
customs, In debating on the budget
speech had taken occasion to dwell at
some length on the subject of the
subsidies to the steel industry in the
maritime provinces, and at the close
of his speech a member of the opposition had risen to ask why the administration had not extended similar encouragement to the mining industry
of British Columbia. In reply Mr
Patterson said in substance, "For the
information of the honorable member of the opposition I may say that I
should not be surprised if the government shortly takes action in the matter to which he has referred."
Mr. Taylor also went Into tho proposition to  establish   a   portfolio  of
Ines with Mr. Sifton. The latter
stated that the government would not
consider this mutter at all. There
were many objections raised, principal among which were that the present ministers handled departments
requiring scores and even hundreds
of clerks while a portfolio of mines
could be handled for
A NUMBER OF YEARS
at least with a dozen or fifteen clerks,
tho second great objection being that
the minister holding, the portfolio of
mines would necessarily be a political appointee who would possess none
of she technical knowledge necessary
to administer the department as it
should be run. As a compromise Mi.
Sifton will establish In connection
with his owii department a bureau of
mines. Tbis will be carried Into
effect without further delay and the
proposed bureau will be in charge of
a first class mining man whose qualifications must be gllt-cdge. A stuff
of clerks will be provided to place the
bureau on a thoroughly efficient husls
and it is expected that tbe Innovation

ALL PARIS MAD WITH JOY WHEN
THE RUSSIAN  FLEET
ARRIVED.
FRENCH     THOUGHT      EMPEROR
NICHOLAS WAS ANNOYED AND
WOULD BREAK COMBINE.
Paris, April 9.���The unexpected return of the Russian squadron dwarfed
the Importance of all other events In
the programme at Nice to.lay. ' The
news Is on the tip of every tongue in
Paris and joy is expressed by both the
public and the press.
The intensity of this gratification
shows that great numbers of Frenchmen had treated with skepticism the
explanation that the withdrawal of
the squadron was simply due to a desire not to be politically Identified
with the Franco-Italian demonstrations. A section of the nationalist
press has carefully fostered this impression, pursuing a policy of seizing
upon every possible opportunity to
embarras tbe government. The organs had asserted that the departure
of the Russians^lmplied dissatisfaction
on the part of Emperor Nieholas with
the Franco-Italian rapproachmeut and
heralded the break-up of the Franco-
Russian alliance. A brooding feeling
of uncertainty was thus created
which broke like a spell before the
happy tidings of the teturn of the
Russian squadron to Vlllefrsncz and
was transformed into expressions of
gladness.
Inquiry In official quarters regarding the explanation of the return of
the Russian squadron elicited the Information that tbe squadron left Toulon for the reason assigned at the time
and cabled to tbe Associated Press,
namely that it was never intended the
whole Russian squadron should remain there during the Franco Italian
festivities, as the presence of a third
party might tend to check the expansion of feeling but that the Russian
government had not anticipated such
an unfavorable effect as was created
by the withdrawal, or such oommenta
ss appeared in a section of the foreign
press and In the nationalist organs in
France.

MINE OWNER AND MINE LABORER
All who have the true interests of
the country at beort will greatly rejoice at the decision reached by the
ii,embers of the Miners' Union at
Rossland. It appears, now that the
facts of the situation are known,
that a serious strike has been narrowly averted. It was only by a majority
of 12 that the peace advocates won.
That they did win and that the men
will remain at work in consequence
are circumstances not only largely in
the interest ot the country but in the
interest of the men themselves. It is
argued that the men have grievances
against existing conditions which
ought to be remedied. Perhaps they
have. They know their own business
best, and The Miner would not presume to dictate to them. But on the
general principle that labor troubles
are an abomination and to be avoided
as often as possible The Miner ex
presses hearty approval of the determination of the men to remain at
work. We think very few will be inclined to dispute that the mine owners
are a reasonable  body of  men.    They
��� are engaged in an enterprise which
admittedly is the most hazardous in
which capitalists can place their
money; and the returns on the investments made often fall short of expectation. Before undertaking the
operation of a property tbe most
careful estimates must be made of tbe
running expenses; and, of course,
wages require to be calculated before -
hand. When this has been done and
a decision reached to proceed with
work, it will be seen how disastrous
would be any interference with tbe
company's calculation. It may be
contended that the scale of wages
thus set would not be fair wages. Is
there any justification for such a contention? Will rational men assume
that mining companies are not inclined to treat their employes fairly?
We should be very much surprised to
bear of that question being answered
affirmatively. What, then, is the
reason of the frequent friction between mine owner and mine laborer?
The answer is not hard to Snd���certain individuals and, unfortunately,
certain newspapers, profit by agitation and are continually stirring up
trouble. It hardly requires that any
argument should be adduced in support of that contention���the experience of the past only has to be recalled to have Its truth admitted. There
is inherent in all of us a desire to
earn as much money as we can���a
very laudable aspiration; but in most
brandies  of  business   in which   men
, are employed that uspirulion is curbed  within   reasonable   bounds   by  a
- knowledge that it would be futile to
make extravagant demands upon Out
employers, who, in most Instances,
only succeed in making small profits
themselves from their business operation*.    But there.arc cases   in   which
, that aspiration Is not curbed within
reasonable  bounds.
Then we witness what Is popularly
termed a strike. We do not argue-
that BUCh action i�� always unjustifiable, that there- have not. been instances where men huve had to resort
to it in order to get a measure of justice; but we do say that in Innumerable instances such a drastic step.will
be found to havo been brought about
through the influence of agitators
who stand to profit by continually
holding up to a body of men the argument tbat by Insistence upon more
generous treatment, they may reap
greatoi pecuniary   reward   for   their
i labor. Such men do incalculable
barm. Men who.would be contented
and happy if loft alone are rendeied
discontented and where peace and
prosperity have roigned before we see
turmoil and distress.
Island   empire   would   be gratified to
have the allianoe of some reliable and
friendly   nation   if she has   to   fight
Russia,   she   certainly means to fight
without,   if   Russian    aggression   in
China   continue.    Other   powers   may
put   what   round-about    construction
they please   on   treaties;   Japan   applies a common   sense   interpretation
and will   act accordingly.    When one
looks at the  enormous  extent of this
world's   real   estate held   by   Russia,
and the enormous population the Czar
claims   sovereignty  over;    and then
looks at   the   little speck on the  map
that   Japan   makes,   with   her   little
forty   or   fifty   millions, the possible
oontest seems   too   unequal   to be regarded seriously.    Ii must be  remembered, however, that there is   another
little   group   of   islands    forming  a
power which managed to hold its own
against all coiners for several hundred
years, and now her people  practically
dominate     the   word.    Japan   is   not
appalled by  the   countless   hordes of
the Muscovite.    It may be   truly said
of the Japanese, as   Bismarck said   of
Germany, theirs is a nation that fears
nothine but God.    While Russia holds
much of her  population by   fear  and
force; while the   resources of her vast
military power  are   frequently   taxed
to keep down murderous risings, Japan has a people   who are loyal to  the
core, and every man ol her army could
safely  be  taken  abroad   without the
slightest   risk   of an   uprising to en
danger   the  government.   China  has
declined to make the Manchurian con
cessions,   which   would lead Japan to
draw the sword and   hurl  herself  on
the Russian invaders of China.   Now,
will   "the   bear   that   walks   like
man" accept   the   snub,   or will   she
attempt to continue taking that which

Accident called Mr. Dunsmuir to
his present honorable position in public life. He did not aspire to the direction of public affairs, and indeed,
appeared to consider himself ai not
adapted for useful service in tbis connection. But the circumstances under which the call to form a government came to him, seemed to make it
imperative that he should sacrifice
private Inclination to the call of public duty, and he accepted the task. A
business man rather than a politician,
Mr. Dunsmuir snrrounde.l himself
wivh colleagues of business instincts,
and with a single eye to duty they
set about putting the provincial bonse
in order. They are yet only at the
beginning of their task, but they
have started well. What they accomplish must depend upon the extent of the backing they receive
from public sentiment. It therefore
is to the interest of every man in the
community that, if he approves of the

J. ,1. Fleutot, B. C. manager of the
United Oold Fields,Limited,of Hritish
Columbiu, paid in 815,000 at the bank
of Montreal yesterday to the credit of
A. II. Kelly, owner of the May aud
Jennie mine, which the company has
had under bond for several months.
This makes the third payment on the
property. The significance of the
fact from the general standpoint is
that the United Cold Fields are satisfied thut in the May and .lennie group
they have a mine, after expending a
considerable appropriation in development work. The May and Jennie is
located in the heart of the tree-mill'
ing belt which stretches for eight or
ten miles to the west of Nelson, and
is in a particular section that is yet
in the prospect stage. The company
has apparently concluded to go ahead
with the property, and during the coming summer the ten-stamp mill now
lying at Granite siding will be set
up and operations commenced. With
a propeity producing butlion on
Forty-Nine oreek the district is certain to receive a substantial stimulus
and Nelson's reputation as a free-
milling camp will profit accordingly.
Mr. Fleutot was seen yesterday by
a repreeenative of The Miner and in
response to a query stated that the
work on the mill buildings would be
recommenced as soon as the roads
were in condition to permit of supplies for the additional crew being
transported from tbe railroad. At
present a number of men are at work
in the mine, and while nothing is
said as to the amount of ore in sight
or other particulars of the work, it
goes without saying that the outlook
Is promising, otherwise the company
would not have proceeded on its bond

THE MASTADON CLAIM.
Cyril H. Green, one of the owners
of the Mastadon claim and superin i
tendeut of the work now being carried
on at the property by the Internation ���
al Hold Mining company, was in the
city yesterday on business in connection with the property. The Mastadon is located on Lost creek near the
north fork of Salmon river and eight
miles northeast of Malum. It is a
gold-copper concentrating proposition
which gives every indication of developing into a first class property. The
present owners Mr. Green and William Olaffy of Trail, staked the claim
in 1807 and have done several thousand dollars worth of work since then.
A strong lead crosses the claim in
a northerly and southerly direction
and outcrops IS feet wide.
From the surface 75 tons of ore
averaging 88 per ton was mined. In
December last the property was bonded to tbu International company, a
Vermont and Quebec concern, who are
now working the property and will
continue operations all summer. A
mining engineer Inspected tho property last week and reported most- favorably as to the prospects.- When
the programme of development work
Is completed the company will erect a
concentrator if the results aie as satisfactory as has been the case up to
the present time.
THE ELGIN GROUP
After being five months In the hills
and many miles from the nearest camp
the crew of the Elgin group came
down yoaterday and will remain in
Nelson until the snow goes off sufficiently to enable provisions to be taken in for the summer's work. The
Elgin group is operated by the York-
Manchester Syndicate, of which T,
G. Pioctor Is B. C. manager. The
property is located 15 miles up Proctor
creek which enters the west arm of
the lake at the townslto of Procter.
The se.tlon is practically virgin, although some work was done there
several years since on the Elgin
group, The Elgin is a silver-lead
proposition of which gieat things are
expected. During the winter the
crew drove a crosscut 140 feet to tap
the main lead. Ore of excellent
quality was encountered, but it is believed that this body Is not the main
ledge and when operations are resumed u couple of months hence the crosscut will be continued some distance
further. The showing is first class
and with further work the property is
likely to develop into a valuable mining property. The special intorest to
NelBonsltcK Is that a new camp is
likely to be established on Proetor
creek as a result of the syndicate's
operations and this means business
for merchants and business men generally.

GRIEVANCES   OF   MINERS
^COMPLAINTS MADE BV MEMBERS
OF   MINERS'   UNION   AT
KOSSLAND.
HE MEN   CONTEND   THAT   THE
AGREEMENT HAS BEEN
VIOLATED.
*
Tlio   Rossland   Miners' Union   last
evening   concluded   the balloting   on
the question of whether   or not  there
,-houlil be a strike   on   the raising  of
' muckers wages   from   12.50 to   fit per
day and for the adjustment  of  other
grievances, sayii   the Kossland  Miner (
Vi^pf  Tuesday.   Tho  vote   only   fell   12
���hurt   of   deolaring in   favor   of   the
* iHtrike.    In   order   to   carry  a   strike
MJnree-quarters of those who   vote  are
���required in the   affirmative,   and   the
.���ajjfillotlng was therefore  rather   close.
:';;},< Secretary   Woodside waB seen  by  a
Reporter of the   Miner after  the  vote
whs   announced   last    evening,    and
'���jiald:   "Ever since the  contract   was
.Wlgiit'd li��'-t year tiiere have bean giiev-
'j-anccH complained   of by  many of  the
member,   of  the union.   One  of   the
'tjjpriiinlp.il of those has   been the vlola-
SBjon of   clause   H   of the  agreement
���'jjjirlilcli rends i   'That an employe being
a member of  the   union   shall be  no
-bar to his   getting   employment,   nor
���bull   the   mine managers   place  any
-obstacle in the way of non-union men
Joining the  union.'    This  agreement
bas been   violated   by the  refusal  of
. tin; mine managers to allow the walk-
~ ,lng delegate, or the officers of the union, to visit,   the mines nnd   there m>-
'. -licit non-union men to become   members.   To show  you  and   the   public
-'-that union men are being discriminate
;��^fd against and that there Is apparently an attempt to destroy our organization I need point to but one fact, and
���that   Is that   in the past six   m intlis
Do less than 437 union men have been
discharged from   the various mines of
this camp for  one  alleged reason or
another.   Does  not   this   look like a
very large proportion   if  it wero  not
a   designed   and   was   an   accidental
movement.   The men  who  were discharged are as good a lot of hard rock
miners  as could   be   found   on  this
continent, and we conteDd   were  not
let out for any   lack   ot   competency.
Most of  them   had established themselves in hoinoB here,   had   money In
tbe banks, which they drew out when
Ihey ileft for other places.   They were
good   citizens,   and   the  only   crime
which they were guilty of wns that
they were union men, and believed in
a fair day's wage for a fair day's
work, and every mother's son of
them could do a day's work, too.
There was no time when there was
any great Increase or decrease in the
force of miners employed, as the
forces employed here remained about
the same numerically during the past
six months, and so the wholesale dismissals are not accountable for on the
hypothesis that they were discharged
at a time when large reductions
were being made in those employed
in tlie several   mines.
"Another grievance which we decidedly object to, first, because it is
contrary to the genius of the people
of Canada, who recognizo nouu but
the regular officers^ of tbe law, and,
secondly, for the reason that we be -
lieve it a blow at the liberties of the
people, ts tho employment of spies;
what I mean Is the system of espionage which is carried on at the mines
here by the detectives of an alien
agency. We do not want the curse of
I'lnkertonism to be fastened onto this
country, and the sooner it is stopped
the better it will be for nil concerned, These spies constantly dog the
footBteps of the men employed on
every level in the principal minus and
follow the officers of the union around
as though they were a lot of criminals. One of these detectives nl tempted to induce the members of our union to break tho luw, hoping in this
way to put the organization in a bad
light before the public. The attempt
failed, because the members of the
union are law-abiding citizens, and
were not to be snared in this way.
This bIiows the character of the
men who are hired from this alien
detective agency by the mine managers to watch the miners of the
camp. The Dominion and provincial
parliaments should take the opportunity now that both bodies are in
session, to stamp out Pinkertonlsm In
Canada forever.
"We also most emphatically object
to the Importation of aliens to take
the place of good British subjects employed In the mines here. We think
that we should be proteoted against
thla Bort of competition, aud call on
those who have charge of enforcing
the alien labor laws to look carefully
Into this matter.
"In conclusion, wo believe that It
is In tbe interest of the oountry and
the camp tbat the muckers be paid
more than thoy are at prosent.
Let Mime of the mine owners try   to
support a family in Rossland on $2.50
per day and you would find that they
would bo shouting a' loudly as the
men are for an increase to 81 per day.
All tbat we ask is living wage ior our
members working underground at
hard and hazardous work. It is our
intention to work in the best interests
of the camp, and wo submit that the
wages paid to tho muckers are not
fair wages,
"We are not discouraged in the
least by the vote cast today, and feel
sure that in time right Will prevail,
and that we will get what wo ask
for and that the grievances complained of will bo remedied."

QUESTION ANSWERED.
Yes, August Flower still has tbe largest sale of uny medicine in tho civilized world. Your mothers and grandmothers never thought of using any
thing else for Indigestion or Biliousness. Doctors wero scarce, and they
seldom hoard of Appendicitis, Nervous
Prostration or Heart fa''ure, etc.
They used AuguBt Flower ti. clean out
the system and stop fermentation of
undigested food, regulate the aotlon
of the system, and that is all they
took when feeling dull and bad with
headaches and other aches. You only
need a few doses of Green's August
Flower, in liquid form, to make you
satiufied there Ib nothing serious the

RAISING THE TRACKS���
The tracks of the tramway company
between Kootenay street and the C.
P. R. depot are being raised to the
new grade of the street. The improvement ihus made is very marked. The
cars to the depot will be running
within a few days. The appearance
of the west end of Baker street has
been greatly improved within the
past few weeks by the work on the

foot sidewalk on the south side of
the street from Falls to tbe depot
g.-ound.
TO CURE THE GRIP IN TWO DAYS

and will prove a vory effective team,
as Chief Lillie promised when he delivered the animals here.
COMES FROM BRAIN.
Phosphates   Found   on    the   Skin   and
Thrown Out From Pores,
We know that  active   brain   work
throws out the   phosphate   of potash
foi this product Is found  on the  skin
after   excessive   brain    work,   there
fore, brain workers, In order to   keep
well, must have proper food   contain
ing pohsphate   of   potash   to   quickly
and surely rebuild tho  used-up tissue
That one oan   obtain   such   food   has
been   proven   in   thousands   of  cases
among users of Grape-Nuts Food.
This contains phosphate of potash
In minute particles, just as it is furnished by nature in the   grains.
This product makes from albumen
the gray matter that builds the brain
and fills the nerve centers.
Io no way can this gray matter bo
made except by the action of phosphate of potash upon albumen, and
this mineial should be introduced to
the body just as it comes from Nature's laboratory, anil not from the
diug store. The system is more or
leas fastidious about taking up the
needed nlemonts, and,as might be sus-
peoted it will lavor the products of
Mother Nature rather than the products of the drug shop, however valu
able the last may lie for certain   uses
Lawyers, journalists, doctors, min
laters, business men and others, who
earn their living by the use of the
brain, arc using Grape-Nnts Food,
It la manufactured for a reason and
was originated by an expert. Ihe
regenerative value of the Food has
been demonstrated beyond question.
CONVENTION CLOSED.
voted
after-
paper
Kootenay Teachers'   Institute  Wound
Up Annual Meeting.
Yesterday morning's session of the
teachers' convention opened at 10
o'clock with an increased attendance
over the previous day. The chief paper, given by R. J. Clark, M. A.,
was a lengthy treatment of "Our
Course in English " which drew out
considerable discussion. After a reading by S. B. Clements, a number of
resolutions were passed. The first referred to time of dismissal of primer
classes. It was thought advisable to
request permission to dismiss them at
the old hour of 11:30 a. m. instead of
12. A second resolution suggested
the advisability of extending or rearranging the time of the summer
vacation so that school might not
start till Spetember 1st, and thus
pass over three weeks of invariable
very hot weather. In the same connection it was thought advisable, in
order to equalize the length of the
terms, to have the midwinter examination about the first of February,
instead of in December as now. A
further resolution referrod to the
forming of a union in order to fos
tor a more piofessional spirit.. The
latter motion wus, however,
down.
The professional part of the
noon programme embraced a
on "Primary Reading" by E. S
Knowlton of Okanogan j a good paper
relating to "Methods In Arithmetic"
by Miss Thorn of Trail; and another
paper byJVV. L.Tompkins, principal of
the Fort Steelo school. Between the
several papers the teacher, were en-
tatned with a piano solo by Mrs. J,
11. Wallace, and solos by Misses Edwards and Jessie Lillie.
Another attempt to bring up tho
question of a union was floored by a
tie vote.
After the afternoon session all the
teachers enjoyed nn hour's'sail about
the lake on Capt. Geo. Hale's gasoline launch.
The evening and last session was
of the nature of an entertainment in
honor of the visiting teachers. A
large number of teachers and friends
turned out. A number of Nelson's
leading musicians kindly placed
tbeir services at the disposal of the
teachers. The programme consisted
of a piano duet by Messrs. Palnton
ami Steed ; solo by Mrs. Thurman ; selection by Millwaid's orchestra; solos
by Mr. Chadbourne, Mrs. Murray,
and Mr.Rex Macdonald; instrumental
by Miss Tyio und a solo by Miss
SutclHTe. These artists and artistes
delighted the audience by their renditions. Short and happy speeches
were given between the musical selections by Rov. Dr. Wright, and Rev.
J. H. White. An hour devo'ted to the
worship of Terpsichore ended the
most enjoyable and successful convention in the annuls of the Kootenay
Teachers' Institute,
