DREYFUS SAILS   FOR   FRANCE.
The Unfortunate   Officer Leaves Devil

Port d9 France,   Island   of   Martinique, June 5.���-The cruiser which  left
here at 10 o'clook tonight to take Dreyfus on board sailed quite unexpectedly.
It   was   not  until   4   o'olock  in  the
afternoon   that   her  commander was
notified to sail and the oruiser  left   as
soon as she   could   get up   steam   and

The Council dooided to take over
the Oity wharf from the Provincial
Government. As the water is rising
rapidly nothing will be done towards
repairing the wharf for Borne time.
Meanwhile a notice will bo posted
warning the public that those who use
it do so at tbeir own risk.
Max Johnson wrote explaining at
length an elaborate system of scaveu-
gering which he wished to carry out if
the City would pay him $3 per month
for every houso in Nelson. The price
was thought to be too big so the lotter
was filed.
H. D. Beck caretaker of tho cometory
asked ln��*Kve the question of remuneration BbUled. After somo discussio"
us to the rovenues to be derived from
digging graves it was dooided to pay
Beck $26 for tho mouth of June as au
experiment. He is to erect a feuco
around tho cemetery.
Hon. F. Carter-Ootton wrote stating
that the O. P. R. had been urged to
speedily give tho Oity a deed to the
recreatiou grounds.
The Mayor and Aid. Fletcher woro
appointed a committee to look into tho
question of tho pnrchuBO of scrapers.

the lire brigade be reduoed to 14 mem-
ben and a oaptain to become a per-

Dreyfus had already reoeived from
his wife a cable message announcing
the decision of the court of oassation.
Dreyfus, however, would be undercharged after being oiiioially notified
of the court's action in his case, but
he would be able to resume wearing
military uniform of his rank in order
to appear before the new council.
WAS    DIPLOMATIC    COURTESY.
Why the Government Qavo Permission to Publish Part of the Protocol.
Washington, Juno 5. ���While the
department of slate has aoeeded to tbe
request of the British Government for
permission to publish iu Canada and
Eugland the part of tho protocol as of
tbe Joint High Commission, wbioh related to the proposed arbitration of tho
Alaskan bouudary question, it has
done so, it is muted, uot because tho
protocols are regardod as conveying an
accurate understanding of tbe present
state of tbe negotiations bnt as a matter
ot diplomatic courtesy.
Those protocols aro of no contemporaneous interest, relating as tbey do
to a phase that had been bo modified by
subsequent negotiation as to bo now of
no importance
The new daily "Imperial Limited"
train of the O. P. R., to be inaugurated June 18, will give the quickest
time across tbe continent of any line
in America. Daily express service
will start via the Crows Nest line on
that date also, which will be a great
convemenoe to residents of East Kootenay.
At present it takes longer for a letter to go from Fernie to Nelson and
receive an answer back than from
Fernie to Toronto. Naturally it has
been far more convenient to order
goods from Winnipeg, with the m.sur-
ance of getting them inside of two
weeks of the date of ordering than to
wait perhaps three weeks or more to
get them from Nelson.
With the new time table and express
trams running a very different state
of affairs will be inaugurated. A letter leaving Fernie in the morning will
be delivered the following morning in
Nelson, aud vice versa.
By this arrangement, also, a merchant oan wire from any town along
the Crow's Nest line for goods one day
and know that if expressed they will
arrive at his place of business the next
day. It means a great deal to^Nelson,
merchants, retail as well as wholesale
and thev will donbtlesa be quick to
grasp the many uppurtunitieij presented by it. There are many articles
it would not pay the storekeeper
at Bmall towns to keep in stook, having only an occasional demand for
them, that in a City like Nelson are
easily procurable. ' After the 18th instead of saying to his customers: "We
haven't got them, but if you oan wait
two weeks I can get them from Winnipeg for you." to probably hear the
answer, "Oh well I guess I'll send
to Toronto to Eatons for them as it
would not take much longer." the
merohaut will be able to inform the
intending buyer that he oan have
whatever is needed by the following
day, if it iB important,or in three days'
ordering by mail if not of much
value.
One of the principal artioles of merchandise that it will affect the Bale of
during the summer is fruit and produce generally. All through the pass
the merchants are anxious for the new
schedule to come into effect, bo that
they can get their fruit etc., in by
way of Nelson, instead most of it by
Lethbridge and the river steamers on
the Kootenay, from Jennings, Montana.
A great deal of shopping that is now
done by mail with Eastern firms will
then be doue in Nelson. Nelson being tbe natural distributing point of
tbe Kootenays its advantages as a
shopping as well as a wholesale centre
will become apparent to all living
along the line of the Orow's Nest
Pass when by the new timetable quick
transit for passengers and goods iB assured.
There is probably hardly a line of
business in Nelson that will not feel
tbe good results of the ooming change.
Nelson will undoubtedly be visited
by large numbers of residents of East
Kootenay during the Dominion Day
excursions who have never before been
over here. Many of them will come
not only to see tbe celebration but
to do considerable shopping as well.
They will then bave an opportunity
to learn what Nelson ia.

Paris, June 5.���There was great excitement today in the ohamber of deputies. M Dupuy, in tbe course of a
speech regarding the recent outbreak
said :
'We knew that preparations were
made for demonstrations and we took
measures for the President's protection in driving to and from the raoe
course and nothing occurred on the
way."
Here a Royalist deputy cried: "You
bid him."
Mr. Dupuy retorted: "No, but your
friends bid behind the women.'
Protests from the Rightists followed,
and M. LasieB, anti-Semite cried:
"Loubet and DeloaBse (Minister of
Foreign Affairs) hid behind policemen."
This statement was followed by an-
uproar lasting several minutes. When
comparative qniet had been restored
M Dupuy Baid: "We stationed policemen at the paddock with orders to intervene immediately in case of a d uu
onstration and tbey did so, though
they met with much opposition and
protests, I assume all responsibility."
"You havo the evil eye,"oried M.
Lasies, a remark which caused laughter.
M. Dupuy continued: "All the
post did their dnty. An individual
threw himself on the President of the
Republic, who remained quite calm.
Tbe proceedings at Aotonli were all
the more disgusting beoause they occurred in the presence of foreign representatives. The persons who have
been arrested would be examined by
a magistrate, who will decide whether
there was a conspiracy. We are satisfied the aocused are members of clubs
which the Government has decided to
close. Yesterday's demonstrators pretend to represent France in tho army,
bnt the publio was against them. We
are supporters of the Republio and Republicans who do not mix with those
who are only borrowed her name in or
der to better destroy her. You ha7e
given us a countersign we intend to
uphold. If you give us your confidence we shall know how to defend
our institutions from those who attack
them."   (Applause.)
Here M. Decassagnac, Conservative,
interjeoted : "The country is sick of
the Republic As to the affair which
has divided the nation and the families it will yet weigh heavily against
yen in the stories current iu regard to
the measures which you proposo
against the generals."
"A certain amount of oourago" ox-
claimed the premier, "is required to
do what we propose. "
"To drag before a high court," retorted M. Cavagnac, (former Minister
of War) "your formor colleague, you
must have oause to close the clubs, for
the nation is awakening, and is only
awaiting the right man." (Applause).
After further debate an order of the
day was accepted by the Government
stigmatizing tbe occurences at Auteuil and approving the declaration of
tbe government. It was carried without a division after the first part had
been adopted by a  vote being taken.
M. Denis Cochin, Conservative,
asked that tbe letter of tho government demanding the prosecution of
General Mercier should be communicated to the House. The Premier re-
pried tbat it saddened him to take the
step deemed necessary, and explainod
the trial of M. Deroulede was nut conducted in a seemly manner, instancing
the fact that M. Deroulede was permitted to pronounco a long diatribe
against President Loubet in regard to
the verdiot of the oourt of cassation
whiob showed that some persons had
inclined responsibilities which must
be explained. First thero was the
case of Du Paty de Olam, and then tbo
communication of the secret documents
of the court martial having been attributed to General Meroier, and the
government believed it to bo its dnty
to ask the chamber to say if the prose-
ontion should be undertaken. (Great
excitement and appause from the leftists). Tho vote was taken. A hoated
discussion afterwards occurred over
the prosecution of General Mercier, in
tho midst of which M. LaBios suggested the impeachment of the premier
and violently criticised those who
were "persecuting" General Mercier,
which the deputy deolared was
more to influence court martial at
Rennes.
Finally, the chamber voted 299 to
238 to adjourn tbo appointment of tho
commission of enquiry into the conduct of General Mercier nntil after the
oourt martial at Rennes.
The leftists moved that the verdict
of the court of oaBsation be placarded

Oaptain Duncan Denies tha Report Tha

Debate in the English House of
mous Yesterday.
London, Juue 0.���Mr. Balfour, in
introducing the vote of 1150,000 for
Lord Kitchener in the Houso of Commons said tho fact that tbo power of
Mahdism was crushed was due to tbe
genius of the man they desired to honor and reward. The Government leader expressed the hope that those who
objeoted to tbo policy of the Soudan
advance would uot think that was a
reason for resisting the vote, as such
a course would be introducing politics
into military matters.
He then dwelt with admiration ou
tbe way tbo Sirdar hud surmounted
difficulties and organized victories by
"His unswerving and almost superhuman industry. " He deserved a signal mark of gratitude and honor, and
he (Mr. Balfour) believed in proposing
the vote, that he was only carrying
out the wishes of tho Houso aud the
Oourt.
Sir Henry Campbell ���Bauucrmau,
the Opposition leader, cordially supported tbe motion, while expressing
regret at tbo treatment of tbe Mahdi's
body, which ho regarded as au error of
taste aud judgment. Mr. Balfour did
not refer to tho incident of the Mad-
bi's head, excepting iurt irectly when
he said he conceived that the oue ques
tiou before the houso rioilt with military merit, in connection with his reference to mixing poliics in military
matters, Mr. Balfour declared that
those who wished to withhold from a
successful general a merited reward because he bad carried out a policy of
which they disapproved wore virtually telling him and bis soldiers who
had faced death that they would have
not only tc obey orders, bnt to know
whoBe orders tbey wore obeying. Mr.
Balfour added that the country whose
army concerned itself in politics was
ou thu verge of military despotism.
Mr. John Morley, tbo former Liberal
chief secretary for Ireland opposed the
vote ou the ground of the treatment of
the Mahdi's head, to which Mr. Balfour replied that be did not believe the
element of vengeance had influenced
General Kitchener in the smallest degree, pointing out that he had treated
the Mahdi's family with the utmost
consideration.
"Tho removal of the body" ho said,
"had been public, as publicity was au
essential part of thu policy dictating
the act. It was tho first duly of the
man responsible for the safety of the
men aud ollicers left in charge of Um
durman to root out the fanatical superstition which had been the strength
of Mahdism for years. "
Mr. Halfour admitted, however, that
perhaps tho re-interment of tho remains might have been conducted in
a bettor manner.
Lord Kitchener, General Lord Roberts of Kandahar, and the Duke of
Marlborough wero in tho gallery of
tho Houso of Commons during the debate.
On Saturday evening   Captain Duncan was  informed  that  eight miners
employed at the   Granite   had   struok
work.    With very littlo difficulty some
more   hands   were found and sent  to
the mine.    The   foreman of the Granite informed Tho Miner's reporter last
night that 14 men had  applied for the
eight vacancies, that the full complement of rueu were now employed, tbat
four extra hands   were  to be  engaged
tomoriow, and that the   rate of wages
paid was $3.00 per diem.     The Miner
then interviewed Captain Dunoan, the
manager of tho Duncan MineB, Limited, with reference to  the  occurrence.
Captaiu Duncan  said that  as soon  as
it was known   that  there were vacancies iu the mine, the Company's offloe
was besieged with applicants for work.
Tbo    Captain   selected   14   men  and
sent thorn   to   the mine;   and   out of
those the  foreman   chose   eight.   The
new hands were far better miners than
those   who   had   loft    All the applicants were qui'o   willing   to work  at
ths uuiform wage of $3.00  per   diem.
(juostioned as to tbe truth   of   a statement In Sunday's Tribune to the effect
that Italians   were being   employed at
the mine, tho Captain waxod eloquent:
:    "I   can   toll   you"   said   he. "that
some of our huuds   may   be dark com-
1 etc  mil.,'1,   but   they    have   no  more
Italian blood in them than John Houston has.    Our men uro all white men,
sir, honest   men   and  good   workmen
too. which is more than can be said of
somo of tbeir would bo champions"
This news is interesting and encouraging to mine owners; it goes far
to prove that tho many rumors now
extant aro probably grossly exaggerated.

miuers iost their lives at Rossland the

to whioh   publio   attention   may very
properly be drawn.    It was  ascertained  at  the iuquest  that  the engineer
was not a certificated  oue.    This may
not establish bis  incompetency ; but it
is not pleasant to  think that the lives
of minora   are held so cheaply that the
fact and the lamentable incident  connected with it do not appear to  exoite
the leost interest iu   official   quarters.
It may or may uot be tho   business  of

UNWISE  LEGISLATION.
Mr. W. James Newall, who describes
himself as "Member  Institute Mining
Metallurgy," contributes a lettor to the
June number of the British  Columbia
Mining Record, on the subject of  the
eight-hour law.    He writes   as a   disinterested   person   and   his  opinions,
moderately and dearly  expressed,   are
well  deserving   the most  thoughtful
consideration.    In   a  mining conntry
whose  resources  are   only in   prooess
of development, any   legislation calculated to affect tbe industry   should  bo
maturely aud exhaustively oonsidered.
That is the basic principle of bis ar
The   British    Columbia    Workman
says;   "Dispatches   from   tho  Slocan
distriot state that a   number of miners
will demand ton  hours' pay for  eight
hours' work.    There being no coulirm-
atiou,   we  ure   loth to take the statements as true in toto.    We oauuot  believe that miners   are so unioasouublo.
If it is their intention   to demand the
same money for eight hours'  work as
they now receive for  ton  hours,   they
must   have   somo  exceptionally   good
grounds    for    so   doing.    Till   such
time us the facts   come   out   we  hold
back from passing an opinion."  Com-
iug   from   the   Labor    organ  of   the

guraent and it is a sound one.    It is a  of.reasonah'enoss   in   the   further (lis-
p.'inoiple   that was disregarded   when
the amendment to cut down the working day to eight hours was introduced.
Employers and  employed   may wrangle over the pay, and   the   interests of
the country may suffer in   the meantime, but the  great  wrong that was
committed,   the   great   mischief  that
was done, must be laid nt tbe door  of
the Legislature   and   of the   Ministers
who are responsible   fur what the Legislature does.   They have created  disturbance where  disturbanoe   was  not
threatened.   It was an aot  of wanton
misohief, if the full nature and effeot I
of it were understood ; of reprehensible
ignorance,   if  they weie   not   understood.    By this   legislation   the working miners   are   invited   to make   demands whioh  the  owners are obliged
to  resist  in their  own   interest.   In
one    sense   the   miners  are   entirely
blameless, ns tbey are only   seeking to
me a weapon put  into  thair hands by
the Legislature of the Province.   It is
little wonder   Mr. Newall  iB  amazed
at the thoughtlessness with whioh men
in  responsible   positions   conld  tbns
trifle with an industry  on   whioh the
future    hopes    ot   the   Province  are
chiefly based.
"With the fairest and most promising futnre before It of any country
that I know," sbts Mr. Newall, "as
regards gold mining, it is heartrending
to see laws passed whioh are bonnd, in
the future, to seriously handicap the
country." It is the future he regards,
more than the prosont, and what he has
to say of it shonld arrest the attention
of all who are immediately interested
in this burning question of the day. At
present, with our mines in the formative state only, three shifts in the
twenty-four hours may be worked to
advantage, but if British Columbia
mines prove as good as we all expect
they will, they will require to develop
into something more than surfaoe
workings. We shall have to go down,
not a hundred feet, but hundreds of
feet, for our gold and silver. And in this
deep mining, whioh is the condition
of the future if the industry is to real ���
ise the hopes entertained of it, three
shifts a day are out of the question.
Too muoh time in what is described
as preparatory work is required to
make tbe throe shifts; for if the day
were divided into three the amount
of drilling that could be done in eaoh
would not be worth blasting. "We
therefore come to Mm," says Mr.
Newall, "tbat if tbe eight-hour law is
founded on tbe idea of a three-shift
system, it is founded on a basis which
will not work in tbe futnre; and it is
a poor aud bad law, whioh is only applicable to the present infantile stage
and not to tbe mature and prosperous futnre, whioh it gravely imperils. ''
It was hasty, ill-considered legislation, whatever may oome ot it, and
for the misohief Ministers are responsible. But while easy to fix the responsibility, it is necessary to remember tbat tbo mine owners are the sufferers. They are the injured party.
Whether the law is good or bad in itself, they are the victims of the violent disturbanoe whioh tbe manner of
enacting it inevitably produces. The
miners suffer nothing. As they are
the two parties most directly concerned, it is not nnreasonable to ask tbat
the miners before proceeding to extremities, should consider tbe position
of the injured. If they do this calmly,
and with the intelligence and sense
of fairness they possess, tbey will be
forced to admit that tbe owners ought
not to be compelled to shoulder all
the burden. Let them oonsider whether thoy may not, to the advantage of
all conoerned, do something to relieve
tbe disturbance.

OHOATE AND   MRS.   MAVBRICK.
Will Probably Secure Her Pardon From
the English Government.
London,    June   8.���The   Associated
Press is able to confirm the report that
those  who   have been   working in favor of Mrs. Florence  Maybrick,   will
not be surprised at her  release  at nny
moment,   now     tbat   United    States
Ambassador Ohoate has had two inter -
1 views on the subjeot with the Marquis
of Salisbury, at which his  strong representation of the  American view   of
the matter met   with  a most  promising receiption.
Mr. Choate, since his arrived in Eng
land has taken the liveliest interest in
the oase. He reached every shred of
information in the matter, has asked
for high judicial opinions,and his own
legal knowledge has given him exceptional facility in dealing with the
intricacies of the case. One of Mrs.
Maybrick's advocates, a well known
worker of the liberal party, Mr. Levy,
presented Mr. Ohoate with a specially
compiled dossier of tbe whole oase, in
the collation of which, he received
the adviceB of the higher legal authorities in the kingdom, including
Lord Chief .Tustioe Bussel and Lord
James of Herford, attorney general to
tbe Prince of Wales, with one of the
onlmeBt judical minds, who definitely
states thnt the position as left by Mr.
Henry Matthews (the former home
secretary now Viscount Laudatt) is
absurd, and shows in the strongest
light the confused state of the English
Criminal law, Mr. Choate received the
most definite instructions from Washington, the gist being that he was to
press for an immediate revision of
the case as the United States oonsidered the firue had come for an immediate consideration of it.

At the Assizes   .yesterday   afternoon
tho following presentment was made
by tho Grand .Jury to the judge:
To  the    Honorable    Montague    W.
Tyrwhitt Drake.one of tho Justices of
the Supreme Court of British Columbia, presiding at tho Nelson   Assize,
May 80, 1899.
May it Please Your Lordship; We
tho Grand Jurors of thn District of
West Kootenny,respectivolyproseut the
following:
We regret tho increase of crime in
the district, as shown by the number
of cases brought before us; this is
doubtless owing, in a great measure to
the large increase in population���partly
of a floating elmrnotor, owing to tho
railway construction now going on,
during tho last two years. Wo note,
however, with satisfaction thnt there
are no criminal cases from the Oity of
Nelson.
Former Grand Juries, from the year
181)2, have made Presentments, asking
for the removal ot tho Powder Magazine from its present location, opposite
the City of Nelson, without effect.
We, this year again preseut this as a
menace to tho lives of the citizens of
Nelson, and wish to indict the Hamilton Powder Company, and the Giant
Powder Company, and their agents,
and ask your Lordship's assistance, bo
that these companies may be made to
romove their magazines, at least two
miles from the Oity limits at onoe.
We ask your Lordship to represent
to tho proper authorities, the entirely
inadequate accommodation for the business of tho Assizo, of the nre sent
Court Houso at Nelson. We feel we
need only mention this to hnve the
hearty support of your Lordship nnd
all who may havo the misfortuno to
hav�� business to transact in the present Building; one small room is all
the accommodation provided for Grand
Jurors, Petit Jurors aud Law Library. Wn find there is no vnnlt or
safe for the protection of valuable papers in the custody of the Registrar.
The present vault in the Court Houso
building is completely OOOUpied by the
books aud documents in charge of the
Mining Recorder niiii croia commissioner; in oase of Are, irreparable loss
would be sustained.
Wo visited the Provincial Gaol and
found the building clean and well
cared foi hy tbo oflieinls; the struj-
ture. however, owing to shrinkage and
settling is iu ueed of immediate repair. Wo found no proper appliance
for uso in ense of fire; the water being
laid on in a very unsatisfactory manner, and no hoso piping of any description. Should there be a tiro in the
building, loss of life would probably
occur, owing to there being no appliance to open all the colls at once, as
in other prisons. A safe or vault is
rrquired for the proper keeping of public documents and .insh or valuables,
which the Warden has in his care, he-
longing to prisoners. A suitable fence
should be erected around tho gaol and
other publio buildings iu tho vicinity,
aud a guard should be appointed to look
after the prisoners when working outside the gaol. They could then bo employed in useful work about the gaol,
school houso and other publio buildings.
We wish to draw the attention of
the authorities to the fact that Grand
Jurors are in recoipt of no remuneration for their labors ; we believe that
Grand Jurors in all other Provinces in
the Dominion are paid for their services, and we ask that adequate remuneration be allowed for services of
Gland Jurors in the future. We draw
attention to the insufficient school accommodation at Nelson nnd recommend that a ward school of at least
three rooms be erected near tho Eastern boundary of the City.
In conclusion, we wish to thank
your Lordship for the great consideration you have shown us while we
have been fulfilling our duties as
Grand Jurors, and we also desire to
thank the Deputy Attorney-General for
his care and assistance in presenting
in a fair and olenr manner the several
oases brought before us.
W. A. JOWETT,
Foreman.
The judge commenting on the Grand
Jnry's presentment remarked that the
propinquity of tho powder magazine
was no doubt a serious matter. He
would see that, the circumstances were
put before the proper authorities at
the earliest opportunity; and though
he oould not promise that any steps
would be taken to remedy the evil be
would give what assistance he could to
the Oity.
The trial of Henager for incest was
the first on the list yeterday. The
judge admonished those in oourt of the
unsavoury nature of the case and remarked that, knowing full well the
nature of the charge, no decent-minded
person would care to remain ia court.
At the close of the judge's speech
the court was speedily deported save
by those who were actually engaged
on the oaso. The jury found the prisoner guilty of the attempt to commit
the crime ho was charged with. Mr.
Justice Drake deferred sentence.
Edward Quinlan was then tried for
the theft of $10 at Brooklyn, B. O.
He was found guilty and sentenced^)
six months imprisonment. """"
court then adjourned.

Ledingham, Esq, of Victoria, arrived
here yosterdav. Mr. Ledingham iB oue
of the owners of the Ivy mine on Goat
Mountain, which is one of the group
owned by the Northern Light 'Mining
Company. It is his intention to continue development work on the mine,
and work the same continuously all this
summer The Ivy already has a tunnel
driven in some ISO feet besides a 60
foot shaft. The previous average assay on the Ivy is 100 to 168 ounoes silver, 78 to 81 >u lead. 3 to 750 gold The
mine is about two miles from Ores-
ton. _ _   ,      _
Geo. Alexander, Esq., of Kaslo, B.
0, also arrived here yosterday on his
way to the well-known Alico mine on
Goat Mountain. Mr. Alexander repre
sents an English oompany. who recently bonded the Alice formerly owned by Captain Hay ward and others.
Considerable development has been
done on the Alice. A tunnel 100 feet
long has been run in and crosscut on
tbo ledge 50 feet each way, besides several small shafts having been sunk
on the ledge. It is the intention to be
gin operation on the ledge again im
mediately. The Alioe has a three
foot vein of concentrating ore and
galena, the average assays are 60 to 06,
ounces silver, and 55 per cent lead.
The mine is about l>j, miles from
Creston. ,
Considerable satisfaction is felt on
acount of Messrs. Bradshaw, Don and
Mullandame having been appointed
justices ot the peace. Work was
oommenced on the new school house
today and it will be rapidly pushed
to completion.

Silverton, Jnne 5.���The Vancouver
mine closed down yesterday, Mr. Barker, the foreman, having received worn
from the owners to take this step, leaving now only the Essex and Noonday
;.. ,u:., nunn. in   aneratinn   at ni'iisciit.
We have been informed by a practical miner who is conversant with the
conditions obtaining in the western
mining districts that the following are
the wages paid in districts mentionud
for miners including machine drill
men:
Montana $3.50 for 10 Hours.
Southern Idaho $3 tof8.50 for 10
hours.
Colorado $3 to $8.60. for 10 hours
Under   the  new 8-hour   regulations
there $8 for 8 hours.
��� Utah $3.50 for 8 hours.
California $2.50 for  9 and 10  hours
Nevada $3.50 for 10 hours.
In the iron and coal mines of  Penn
sylvania, West Virginia, Michigan and
Wisconsin the  wages are   from  $1   to
$2 for 10 hours.
��� ���-��  ���
One of the simplest yet cleverest inventions relating to mining engineering may now be seen at Coffee Creek,
near Ainsworth, namely the Taylor
Air Compressor,operated by the Kootonay Air Supply Company.
The plant consists of a shaft 198 feet
deep and about" hve^feet'Bquare. At
the bottom of the shaft is the air
chamber, a twenty foot onbe. .Above
the collar of the shaft is a tower about
100 feet high. On the top of tbe
tower is a tank, 20 feet high and eight
feet in diameter. A flume some 600
feet long and Ave feet in width runs
from the creek into the tank. A penstock runs from the tank to the bottom of the shaft.
The water rising as it enters the
tai.k. causes a- vacuum and the air
sucked through over a thousand tubes,
mixes with tbe water, and then falls
down the shaft breaking, when i
reaches the bottom over a cone. The
water then separates from the air, the
latter in a highly compressed form
filling the cube shaped air chamber.
A pipe-corresponding to otfaftey Valve,
is let into the air chamber, and whim
th pressurs of air exceeds 85 pounds,
tho water is forced from the end of
the pipe and the surplus air escapes.
Tbe compressed air 'is conveyed
through eight inch pipes to wherever
it is required to be used. By the use
of compressed air the labor and expense of hand drilling is considerably
diminished. The Coffee Crook plant
are prepared to supply compressed' air
equal to 500 horse power, more than
sufficient for tho present requirements
of the Ainsworth distriot.
A noticeable feature of this, .patent
iB that it is practically automatic.
Oue man alone is required to inepeot
the plant occasionally. Tbe oom-
prssor is well worth a visit, though
it would be advisable for an intending visitor to apply to someone connected with the Kootenay Air Supply
Oompany before carrying ��nt his in
tentions.

"Mining development in the Slocan is practically at a standstill" said
Percy F. Godenrath, the traveling
correspondnnt of the Spokesman-Review, who was sent to Sandon by bis
paper to leport upon the effect of the
new eight bour law, on bis retnrn
here yesterday, from a week's stay at
tbat town. "'With one or two exceptions all tbe big mines bave olosed
down, awaiting the outcome of the
Change neoewitaterJ by tha  inttodac- {
tion of the eight hour law, though it
iB also true that in many oases some
of the mines would havo been foroed to
close down on acoouut of conditions
brought about by surface water whioh
is particularly bad at this season of
the year.
"The exceptions I havo reference
to are the Slocan Star at Sandon, the
Vanoouver at Silverton nnd t'10 Whitewater Deep at Whitewater, and thero
may ho u few others employing underground miners. These three mines
did not join the silver lead mines association or agree to pay a certain
soale for the new eight hour shift, so
they are free to do as tbey please in
the matter, but whether they will continue after the 18th is something I can
not tell you. The Slocan Star has increased its forco since the llrst, tuking
a pick of tho Bkilled miners who camn
down the hill on that day. The
Whitewater Deop has a small foroe I
was told on the eight hour shift paying tho old scale of $8.50 for same.
"At Sandon the Miner's Union appears to be quite strong and propose
fighting for tho old soale for the eight
bonis. As to tho results one
can figure it out. Mnuy miners left-
there after tlio llrst both union and
non union mou. A few went to the
States but the majority are still in
the country looking aftor their own
holdings or doing assessment work.
Sandon is quiet now, and there are
really few idle miners in that town.
There has been no disorder of any kind
and I do not anticipate for one moment that there will be any. Tho
union I believe will make a hard and
clean tight fro what their members bo-
lievo thoy are justly entitled to���tin
same scale of wagos heretofor paid
miners, for tho eight hour shift, viz.,
$3.50. The mine owners will not
diBouss the question at all and are
letting things remain as they aro. I
believe it will come to a question of
settlement by arbitration if the mines
remain closed for any length of time
as it must seriously effect business iu
every one of the small towns to which
the mines aro tributary."
* * ��
Some misleading information has
been published regarding Slocan mineB
paying $8.50. Iu those cases 10-hour
shifts are still  being worked.
