p3Ctation a general strike of dook-
workors was not ordered tonight. A
conference was held by representatives
of tho various branches of labor along
he docks, and, utter the freight haufl-
lers hud been urged iu vain to return
to work, it was decided that no action
towards it general strike should Be j
taken until President Keefe, of tho !
Longshore Men's Association arrives
boor and looks into tbe situation.
A telegram was sent to Mr. Keefe
urging him to come to Buffalo at. once.
He is expected   thero tomorrow night.
Leaders of tho different laborer bodies, when spoken to ut the conclusion
Of tonight's meeting, suul Hint, while
thoy were averse to a general strike
arin would try to prevent it, the agreement between tho different unions to
stand by each other, wus binding ; and
should tho advance in wages asked for
by thu freight handlers not be granted, nothing oould or would prevent the
oalling out of every union man employed along the docks. In the meantime but little work is being dono on
the docks. A number of the lake
frieght bouts have been laid up and
the few that are in the harbor are
being loaded slowly hy non-union
men. As much freight as possible is
being delivered to tho railways und tbe
managers at the different freight
houses appear altogether in indifferent
ns to whether tho strike continues or
not.

One woman fainted. At the corner
ot Wilson nvenue and Quinoy street
one man was shot aud others had narrow escapes. Passengers esoaped as
best tbey could when stones began to
fly but the conductor and motor man
were struck repeatedly. The latter
drew a revolver and fired three times
into the crowd. He then put on speed
<md ran bis oar out of tbe- mob's reach.

The Hague, Juno 20.���The Brussels
conference sub-committee of the international peace conference couvened to-
dnv, Prof. D e Muiirtciis of the Russian
delegation presiding. The drafting
committees report was amended in regard to awarding greater protection to
neutral states, defining tho right of
civil population to organize for resistance, and the rights of armies toward
armed Mvilians. Ten clauses of the
report were adopted. The report of
the sub-oomirittoo will now be presented to the conferouce and it is believed
thn* nearly all the powns will adopt
the new articles as a basis of instructions for armies whon entering the
field. The Geneva convention committee held pleuary session today to
consider tbe report of its sub-committee. Captain Mahan, of the American
delegation again drew attention to the
omission of au article defining the exact status of wounded nnd shipwrecked
men falling into the sea during a bat-
tie and picked up by neutral hospital
ships. He also proposed three additional articles which were referred to
the drafting oommittee. The Persion
delegate General Miriza Rizkhan,
who is Persian minister to Russia,
moved, to change tne Bed Cross emblem to a white flag with a red sun.
The plenary conference met to adopt
these additonal articles and appointed
a committee to draw up a general a?t
embodying the report of the Geneva

Ariaugmnnt Between Great   Northern
and Northern Paolflo.
Spokane, Juno 20.��� Hack of tbo cutting off of ono of its daily overland
trains by tho Northern Pacific thero
appears to bo an interesting story,
particulars of whioh are slowly coin
iug to light. It has been published that
the Great Northern bad much to do in
persuading the Northern Pacific to
abandon its double tram service. Now
it develops that un agreement has been
reaohed between those i wo "oompet
ing" roads for a di vision of passenger
truilic, and in Ibis division the Grent
Northern is siitl to have the best of it.
Yesterday the following self-explanatory dispatch was received through
the Associated Press:
"St. Paul, June II).���The Northern
Pacific and Grent Northern railroads
have changed their train service so
that hereafter tlui Great Nm thorn
Will have the morning out for Seattle
and northwestern points, and tho
Northern Pacific will have the evening train to tho coast. The double daily
service to tho coast on the Northern
Pacific and Groat Northern is thus
abandoned, und the roads by agreement have dooided to try tbe plan of
sending out their overland trams from
St. Paul 1.2 bonis apart. How long this
arrangement will oontinue is u matter
of conjecture, for if cither becomes
convinced it is not getting its share of
business it will repeal its through
train schedule."
Tbe local offioers of the Great Northern received notice yesterday of the
change in schedule. Tho westbound
train arrives her* ut ~ :30 a.m. and departs at 7:45 a. in., and tho eastbound
urriveB at 8:30 a. m. and departs ut
8:46 a. m., by the new time curd.
On the Northern Pacific under the
new schedule, the eastbound train
ariives in Spokane at 7 :Bn m the
morning, and the westbound is duo
here at !) .55 in the evening.

Ottawa, Out.. June 20.���Tho Union
Label Bill camo up again today befnie
tbe senato committee on bunking and

D. J. O'Donoghio, of Toronto, addressed the oommittee He pointed out
that adoption of the bill would materially assist in relieving working classes from the growing evils of sweating
system, unduly low wages and long
hours and labor under unsanitary conditions. Mr. O'Douoghuo denied, as
suggested, by Senator McMillan, tbat
tbe bill would dictate us to bow business men were going to run their establishments. Ho, O'Donohue, made
an earnest plea for the bill, pointing
nut that tho laboring classes bad been
asking for legislation for six years,
unit nltbough progress wns being made
it was uot yet obtained. Senator
McMillan did not think that O'Don-
ogbne would live long enough to see it
become law, to which Mr. O'Donog-
huo retorted that he might live longer
than the Senate. Tho bill waa allowed to stand over until Thursday
next, but 'he Senate is hostile.
Senator Uurand's wary bill has been
ngcin postponed nut�� 1'harsday _iext.
Mr. St. Jean, a Montreal lawyer, appeared before the committee and said

Aid. Fletcher  has   the  solid   sense
of the City at   his baok in  protesting
against day lnbor for corporation work
in caseB   that   will admit of oontract.
No one supposes tbat   the  ooiporation
gets as good value in the one esse as in
the other;   everybody   knows   to   the
contrary.    If   day   labor were as   profitable as contract labor, we would not
have   such   astnte   business    corporations as the   Hudson's  Bay  Company
and the Baik   of Montreal giving  out
the oonstrnotion   of   their edifices  on
Baker street to contraotors.    It  ia  be
cause they know   the  contractors   can
do better with   the   labor   than   they
could   that they put  the  work   out to
tender.    And    the   municipality  can
have its sewers constructed to similar
advantage by   adopting   the contraot
system.   It is folly   to pretend  otherwise, and no   one does but those  who
think that by advooating day labor they
make themselves popular with the labor
vote. The misohief of it is,though, that
they are sowing the seeds of discontent
and pandering to a feeling  that bodes
no good    to   any  community.     The
honest laborer does not care whether he
puts in his day  under a contractor  or
nnder  a munioipal foreman; in either
case he intends to do  an   honest day's
work.   The   soheming    laborer plans
to shirk it, and it  is he who is found
demanding the system which offers the
laxer superintendence.
The friends of Mr. Martin iu Vancouver are circulating a petition to the
Lieutenant-Governor praying him to
ask Mr. Cottou to resign from the Government. In acknowledgment of the
compliment, the friends of Mr. Cotton
are circulating n petition to have Mr.
Martin put out. And the most absolute harmony exists between Ministers.

WALL
PAPER
Right! !
WANTON   LEGISLATION.
It is getting exceedingly interesting
for the Hon. the Attorney-General.
There has been no more steadfast supporter of the Government as a whole
than The Colombian, New Westminster. It has broken many a lance for
Mr. Martin, in fair, manly fight. But
it is done with him ; it deserts tbe
Attorney-General and goes over to Mr.
Cotton. It is all owing to that Deatl-
man's Island affair. The publication
of that delegate's story was the laBt
straw. "If it is to b* oredited," it
says, "we have no hesitation in saying, that Mr. Martin has set himself
deoidedly'in the wrong,' with every
lover of consistency, fair play, honor,
and decency in publio life. Whatever
Mr. Martin's private views on the
Deadman's Island controversy may
have been, he has practically acknowledged that the position of the Government, as a whole, in claiming Provincial possession of the Island, was right
by aoting, even with an exoess of zeal
as Attorney-General, in that behalf.
The question of ownership is still
before tbe oourtB; and for Mr. Martin, now, to rat' on h is colleagues to
try to carry favor with a certain element in Vancouver, and to knife M.
Cotton with that element, is one of
the most contemptible things that has
ever been perpetrated in the poiitios
of British Columbia.
Mr. Martin,   tho   Attorney-Goueral
for B. C., has during his short   curoer
as a ministor   of   the Provincial Government aroused the autagoiiistn of all
capital interested in tbe Province, and
he has now   succeeded in earning  the
contempt of tho  labor party, to whoso
vote   ho owes   hiB    seat.     Cancelling
the charters which had beeu   too   lavishly granted by the   late  government
might have   been   done in certain flagrant oases,but the hasty and sweeping
aot    which   he   passed    through   the
House last session caused  considerable
loss to several groups ot  English capitalists who had honestly purohased their
charters from   the original concessionaires or their  representatives.    Owing
to his  misapplied   energy,   his   eight
hour bill has become  law   and threatens to close down all the Slocan mines.
Has Mr. Martiu considered   the   inevitable   effeot   of   this   on the London
market?   If there is ono  thing capital
fears more   than   another it  iB   labor
trouble.
Aready the ill effects of this uncalled for legislation are apparent in the
suspension of several mining ieals of
some importance, nnd a marked feeling of uncertainty is observable in B.
C. mining circles in London As the
Attorney-General appears to consider
that in Mr. Ludgate, the hero of Dead-
man's Island, he possess a more valuable client tban ihe Province, would
it not be for better fcr everyone if he
retired from the Government and gave
his entire energies to fighting the battles of private individuals ?���B. O. Review.

The only oritioisin we would be disposed to make of tbe extract elsewhere
from tbe London B. O. Review,
"Wanton Legislation," is tbat the
writer is scarcely fair in singling out
Mr. Martin, for condemnation. Mr.
Martin, constitutionally, is no more
responsible for tbe eigbt-bour law than
any of tbe other Ministers, while actually, if the Union leader, Mr. Wilks,
is to be believed, he is not as much
responsible as Mr Hume, who introduced it. True there has been a general supposition tbat Mr. Hume's position in the Government was that of
mere fetcher and oarrier for Mr. Martin ; but be is Minister of Mines, within the scope and control of whose department suoh legislation naturally
comes. And so far as we are Justified in
assigning individual responsibility he
is undoubtedly the person most to
blame. But all are responsible and all
are blameable in equal degree. The
Ministers are in control of the House
and are responsible for all legislation.
They allowed this law to bo sprung
upon the country, and for the misohief
it is doing���and every day we see
with increasing alarm how great it is
���one is deserving of as muoh oensure
as another.
A prominent business man of Sandon, writing to a friend m Nelson,
says: "Business is very quiet hero
at present, owing to the labor trouble
It is bard to tell how long it is going to last, but expeot it will remain
dull for at least a month." That is
longer than the difference should bo
���offered to oontinne; and in the meantime muoh harm will be done every
interest in the oountry.
A NEW   CANADIAN   MAGAZINE.
The Miner received yesterday the
first number of the "Rod and Gun in
Oanada" a magazine published in
Montreal and devoted to sport. The
magazine is well got up and is cheap
at ten cents. A mattei of interest to
sportsmen is urged, namely a thoroughly organized league of Canadian
sportsmen for tbe protection of game
and !inli.
In this respect it is submitted that,
in addition to legal machinery, the
aotive co-operation of every uiau who
deserves the name of sportsmen is
needed. An article of looal interest
on fishing in Kootenay is contributed
by the writer of Angling Notes. Tbe
magazine is on sale at the Thomson
(stationery and Oanada Book & Drug
Companies' stores.

iVany New ftesidcaces Going Up in Nelson��� Great   Preparations   for

Although the opinion has been

usunl steady increase to in the buildings ot the eity continues. Business
blocks ns well us private residences an
being continually lidded to in number.
On Baker sireet two nnw brick
blooke nro about to be connneiicod.
One nf these, is tbe outcome of (he tn-
orgy inul enterprise of Mr. Malono of
tho Troniont Hotel. His now building
Will adjoin the 1'reninnt. It is to be a
two story brick building, the ground
Hour being intended foi stores and tho
upper floor ior hotol bedrooms. Tho
front will be constructed of pressor]
brick wilh cut stouo trimmings. A
basement with modern pavement
windows and a system of stonm heating will bring the bnilding np to date.
Another brick block Will bo shortly
commenced on the property, belonging
to Mr. Houston, adjoining the Queen's
Hotel. Mr. Hillyer tho contractor,
commenced excavating tor this building yesterday.
Tenders for the new Laud Registry
office, on tho corner of Vernon and
Stanley streets, will shortly he called
for. This building, in si/o 4:2 feet by
53 feet, is to he oonstruoted of brick
and stone and will bo completely tire
pi oof.
The interii.r will consist of a largo
public oiiice aud four smaller offices.
The plans which have been prepared
by Mtssrs. Ewort & Carrie, show
promise of au attractive addition to
the city.
The Hudson Bay Company's now
building progresses steadily. The
front will he decorated with white
marble from tbe lime quarry belonging
to the West Kootenny Brick aud Lime
Company.
The new premises of the Bank of
Montreal have been noticed iu a previous issne.
Tbe Roman Catholic church, per-
hnj s t e most pleasing and orthodox
architectural structure in Nelson, will
bo completed in a few weeks time.
The site is singularly well suited for
the building, tho whole effect being
suggestive of one of tbe temples on
the Acropolis at Athens. Mr. G. Ourtis. the architect, deserves great credit for the excellent taste which the
new church bears witness to.
Among private residences those of
Messrs. \V. A. Macdonald, McKillop
and Vv'. \V. Boer will he worthy additions to the residential portion of the
Oity, While it is said that Mr. Jacob
Dover's house, which is now ready for
nlnstering,will be one of tho handsomest residences in Nelson
So long as tbis steady structural
growth continues there is littlo fear
of the prosperity of Nelson being on
the wane.
The posters announcing the Dominion Dnv celebration appeared yester-
dnv. Thev proclaim, in large lett"rs
that the highest cash prizes and most
valuable trophies ever ottered in B. 0.
for outdoor sports will ho presented
to the victors on that occasion. This
is probably correct and is a further instance ot the well-being of the City,
Tbe Trace and Commerce is a lmnnv
innovation and it is to be hoped that
the citizens will use every effort to
carry ont this part of tho programme

shonld prove an attraction.
If Herr r'teiner's band could be prevailed noon to play hy tho water
side, or, better still, cu a raft, weather
permitting of course, the charming
effeot of music on the vviter would
contribute undoubtedly to Ibis portion
of Mie entertainment.
Tho subscription list for tho sports is
a very large one for tho sizo of tho
town. Tbe bloated capitalist, the en-
joyer of the unearned increment of
land, tbe landed proprietor, or whatever you like to call him, who has invested in real estate in Nelson can
slumber on, Nelson is all right!
not think he had visited any town
where so much taste wi s displayed
in the building of houses both largo
and small, nnd that Nelson as a whole
possessed     the   cleanest   and    neatest
i appearance of any place he had yet
been,    While not  having as expensive
! residences as tho cities of the east yet
the liberal way m which palut was
used on buildings aud fences, and the
countless   pretty   gardens   and   lawns
j made   Nelson   look   an   exceptionally

s
t MINES OF
\        KOOTENAY 1
�����������������������������������������������������������������������������
A gentleman who ih oonneoted with
one ot the largest mining companies
in the Provinoe returned yesterday
from a visit on bnsiness from Moyie
and district. In an interview with
a representative of The Miner he gave
a brief acoonnt of the position of
affairs in the mines there.
He visited tbe St. Eugene and Lake
Shore mines and also the partly de-
voloped Moyie mine. The St. Eugene
haB been woven round with the weeks
of romance to such an extent that it
has secured a notoriety apart from its
mineral value.
The latest legend in that distriot is
the Btory of the disoovery of the Moyie
lead. The looators had been toiling in
vain for days, unable to find the
lead. One of them in a wanton
moment shot a hawk. T'ie dying bird
fluttered to the ground some distance
away and on the spot where it lay
was found the outcrop of the Moyie
lead. This legend is the antithesis
of the "rhyme of the ancient mariner."
At the St. Eugene mine the men
were working on the contract system.
A concentrator is in the oourse of
construction there but the owners are
seriously thinking of discontinuing
the work until the present unsatisfactory state of things has settled down.
The Lake Shore mine is also full
handed. This mine has been taken
over by a Rossland syndioate represented by M. Drewry. Mr. Pridbam,
uncle to Mrs. Melville Parry of .Nel
son, is the president of tnat syndicate.
The Moyie oan hardly be dignified
with the appelation of "mine" it is
at present only a developed prospect,
bat it promises to become a valuable
mine some day.
The town of Moyie is as a city of the
dead. There is no business being
transacted to spet k of owing to the
depression caused by the strike.
Mines, save those working for the contractors, are idle. Even the non-union
men have ceased work in order to
show their sympathy with the union.
In the course of conversation with
many of the unemployed miners it was
ascertained that the general opinion
of the miners there is tbat the eight
hours bill is an unfortunate error.
The men want |8.50 a day and they
are ready and willing to work 10
hours for that $8.50.
They objeot to losing the extra half
dollar. They do not desire and never
desired that their hours of labor should
be curtailed.
The new Imperial train   on   the  0.
P. B. is a great success, the road  bed
being now in first rate order.
���   ��   *
A rich strike was made on the Hart-
ney, on Silver Mountain, last week.
It was made 500 feet below the tunnel
and was covered by   over  three feet of
.......i.   .    Tn   nnrtu of    f.hifl    nrnrarliv     thrt
wash is 25 feet deep.
A new find was made on the Silver-
ton Boy, one of the Emily Edith
group, last week. The work of ground
sluicing for the vein was started some
time ago and a ledge haB been uncovered that carries a two foot streak of
quartz and galena. The last of the ore
on the dumps at the Boston was sorted
on Monday. Considerable outside
work is being done; the proporty olear-
ed of underbrush around the buildings,
the roads put in better condition, and
everything cleaned up. Preparations
are being made by the Coin Develop-
in nnt Co., to do extensive development work on the Coin fraotion, adjoin'.���> the Chambers group above
Cody. A flume 1,000 feet long will
bring the water from Carpenter creek,
and sluioing will be done in order to
expose the lead.���Sandon Paystreak.
tional Tehuantepeo [Railroad which
crosses the isthmus of the same name
and has instruoted Peaison & Son, the
contractors, to begin work under the
oontraot made some time ago to rebuild the line in n substantial manner
and commence work on two new ports
to be completed ut Salina Cruzon the
Paolflo side and at Contcoaloos on tbe
Uulf coast.
This work is of great comineroinl
and strategical importance. It will
cost many millions of dollars and give
Mexico facilities for doing a groat
trade in international freight. Several
large English companies bave been
formed for .business here and copper
will be mined by two new Loudon
companies with nearly 133,000,000 oapital.
