THE CASES ARRANGED
The Terms of Settlement���In the Oase of
Alexander   vs. Heath Judgment
for the Defendant.
Apparently litigants had wearied
ot tlui pitfalls of tlio law, for uo fewer
than three eases wore settled yesterday,
viz: Stoell and Davy vs. Dofries,
Cayley vs. Madden and Brown, and
Stevenson vs. Oronsdaile. The terms
of settlement of tho two former cases
did not transpire.
In the case Stevenson vs. Croasduilo,
the plaintiff sought to set aside a certain bond which, he claimed, had beeu
forfeited. Mr. Bowes appeared for
the defendant and arranged with Mr.
Davies, CJ. 0., for tho plaintiff, that
the defendant should either proceed
with the work called for hy the bond
within a reasonable time and exercise
his option before October 1, iu which
oase the present action would be
withdrawn without costs, or else drop
the bond.
Tho case of Kolly vs. the Hall Mines
was then resumed, Mr. Davits, (j.
O., now appeared with Mr. Bowos for
the defendant company  and handed to
Mr. Wilson, Q. 0., plaintiff's counsel,
a   written offer of  settlement.    After
consulting with Mr. John  Elliott and
the  plaintiff   Mr.   Wilsou   announced
that the  terms   offered would  not  be
accepted.    This   meant   that   the case
should be continued,   but Mr.   Justice
Drake for various   good and  sufficient
reasons, adjourned   tho   case  in order
that he might bo argued at Vancouver
some time Dofore the coming vacation.
In the case of   Alexander vs. Heath,
judgment  was   given   for the defendants with   costs.    The judge promised
to hand down his reasons for judgment
at a later date.
Milne vs. Bodgood   was the last case
on the list    This was a claim for balance due on goods sold and money lent
by tho plaintiff to the defendant.
Mr. W. A. Macdonald, (J C.,appeared for the defendant and applied for an , ..
adioornmeut owing   to   the arisenco of I est workmen of the world,
his  client.    As   this   was tho  second ' ��hi" rn 1,n nrnnn of-    The 6
timo the   indulgence of   the court had
been asked the plaintiff's counsel, Mr.
Galliher, urged the  court not to grunt
an adjournment or else to  grant it upon terms.
Mr. Justice   Drake ordered   that the
money sued for, $810 and costs, bo pai(.
into  court and the costs of the day be
paid to the plaintiff's  solicitor within
10 days.    If   this   order   be  complied
with then the caso will stand adjourned until the next sitting   of tho court.
If tho  defendant make   default   there
���will bo judgment lor tho plaintiff.
Horo audeth the assizes.
Next Monday, Juno Kith, tho county
court opens. Thero will not be another
sitting until September as the legal
vacation, intervenes, when tho overwrought underpaid lawyers can,   with
British Columbia and otheis, was   nu-
sought and undeeired by us:
Therefore be it resolvod bv the Silverton Miners' Union No. 71, W. P.
M., that the contrary is true; that we
favor the law am' its enforcement and
that we shall seek such further reduction of hours as shall mako a demand
for the daily labor of every man willing to work, and as shall by creating
such increased demand for labor have
a tendency to increase wages,
And Resolved, That wo will suppoit
with our votes tho government enacting and enforcing this law and such
other laws as rend to restore to labor
its just reward.
Resolved, That it is an improvement
of our condition that wo are seeking ;
that we do not feel called upon to
maintain that as much work can be
douo in a few as in many hours or
that it is right for us to continue doing as much work as heretofore in order that- wo may justly demand the
same pay. We assert that we have
dono too much work for the money,
that we wore not gotting ten hours'
pay for ton hours' work; and wo d.iny
that wo are asking "ten hours" pay
ior eight hours' work.
And whereas it is wise for us to vigorously use every resource at our command in order to speedily effect the
ends wo nro seeking.
Resolved, that those who oppose us
aro our enemies and that those who
aid us are our friends, and that wo
will treat thorn aoi ordingly.
Resolved, That we will not love our
oneirics, that we will not "turn the
othor cheek ;" that we beliove that Retaliation is Right.
And Therefore Bo it Resolved, That
we tbnounou as unworthy of our patronage such papers us the Spokesman
Review of Spokane, The Minor of Nelsou, the Mining Record of Vancouver'
and all others that, liko them, delight
in special sophistical and parasitical
pleading for (hose who despoil us aud
support, them from a small portion of
tho spoils.
And to the business man, the merchants and hotol men to the professional men, the lawvers, doctors and
preachers, all of whom, at periods of
intonso struggles between employer
and employee, usually affiliate with
the former and deplore the agitation
that discourages investment���to you
wo have this to say:
We know that the rich would become richer if we would consent to
give them a larger rake-off. But not
only is a juster and wider distribution of wealth in our interest, it iB in
the interest of tho State or country,
and wo are therefore your best citizens. We seek to "encourage" men to
hope for the largest possiblo share of
what they produce nud are entitled to.
You ask us to "encourage" capital
to come in, by promising to give it.
rich rewards. You ask us to "encourage" meu with a hundred thousand
dollars to see that they can here increase it to a million. But we deny
that it is desirable to have any man in
possession of a million, aud maintain
that we rightfully refuse to aid you
in encouraging capitalists to come here
with such greedy hopes. The high
er wages and fewer hours that we favor would fill this country with the
most intelligent, effective and happi-
vorld, a citizenship to be proud of. The dollar a day
laborors that would most euoourage the
capitalist would drive every self-
respecting citizen out of the country,
and leavo only cabins hero for houses,
while palaces would be built in Spo-
kaue, Butte, Salt Lake aud London.
And we sav to you iu business and
professional meii that we propose to
"encourage'' business and professional
men who do not givo aid and comfort
to our enemies.
"Resolved, That we do not consider
ourselves any better than the minors
of the Couor d'Aleues. Outrageous and
arrogant wrongs havo ever provoked
violence. The history of no country
needs to be closuly searched to find records of   violent resistance to   tyrants.

Paris, June 15.���The British Attorney General, Sir Richard Webster
opened his speech by mentioning that
he had the privilege years ago to appear in the same room as a junior
oouusel in the Behring Sea cbbo. It
was a significant fact that Venezuela
was represented by a distinguished
man of America, while America was
represented on the bench by two judges
of the very highest position. 11 was a
groat honor for himself aud Mb colleagues to address such a tribunal.
The leading counsel for Great Britain
then paid a tribute to Professor De
Maartens, whose reputation was international   and   said:
"I shall probably have to say much
with which my friends disagree but
I am sure they will extend to as the
oourtesy of forebearance, which we desire to extend to them.''
Sir Richard said  he  only   intended
to touch today upon the  general topics
underlying  the  whole  discussion and
proceeded to give a brief geographical
and   historical   review   of  the  whole
question,   going   back   to  the time of
Columbus.    During   the course of his
remarks   he   said    he   regarded    the
treaty of Minister as a most  important
matter   for   tbe   tribunal,    as    Great
Britaiu claimed Spain was not entitled
to claim   the  whole  of the  western
world in view of the fact that she was
established    in   the  position   of  the
Dutch.   Ha presumed American counsel took   an   utterly different view  of
the construction of both   the   Munster
and Utrecht treaties, and   thought the
arguments    advanced     by   American
I counsel were not characterized by tbat
[breadth which might be expeoted from
such eminent counsel. He then took up
the terms of tbe treaty   of arbitration
aud laid great   stress   on   tbe  British
contention thnt the   treaty was a contract   between   Venezuela   and Great
Britain and not between  the   Spanish
and Dutch. The tribunal had to decide
tbe    boundary    between     Veuezuela
and  Briatin   Guiana  at    the  present
time  aud not between Spaniards  and
Dutch in   1814.     Counsel  then,    said
that in order to clear up any misunderstanding    he   announced   that  Great
Britiin   recognized  \'enezula   as  the
successor  of   Spain   and be submitted
that the boundary as might have been
settled in 1814   was   not   thj   same as
ought to be defined today.    Respecting
the   fifty   years    title    clause   Great
Britain   submitted   that   it  ought  to
come back from   the   date of the   conclusion   of the   treutv of   arbitration.
Counsel  was   adverse to holding   that
fifty years ought   to constitute a   title
whatever might be tho paramouut title
of the other power, as tbis would  cut
both ways.    Where   such   a caso   was
proved the matter   could be settled   in
oue of three   ways, by  deflecting   tho
boundary   line with   territorial   compensation   elsewhere,   without    territorial   equivalent   or  by  payment   of
compensation adding tbat the tribunal
had absolute discretion in the   matter.
Sir   Richard   Webstor    spoke    in    a
clear   voice  and   tbe   arbitrators  and
counsel   followed  his  spoech   olosely,
making notes ��� and occasionally aBking
him to clear up a doubtful point

Board of Trade was held last night at
the Board's room
Robertson, Messrs. Chapman, Morris,
Fletcher, Peters, Proctor, Jowett, Irving, Kydd, Oapt. Dunoan, Dr. Arthur
aud the secretary, Mr. Swanuoll, weie
present.
The president opened the proceedings by pointing out that tho last
meeting had been adjourned owing to
small attendance of members. He
then asked the secretary to read a letter received from A. W. Jackson, the
secretary of the Rossland Board of
Trado requesting the Nelson Board to
appoint two delegates to attend the
amalgamated meeting of the Kootenay
and Boundary District Boards of
Trade at Rossland on August 3. A lso
to give 80 days notice of any special
subject the Nelson Board desired to
have discussed at tbo meeting.
The president explained that this
letter was the ontoome of certain correspondence which bad passed between the various Boards of Trade in
Kootenay ; and that tho Nelson Board
hnd already expressed their willing
ness to attend this meeting. On motion of Mr. Prooror it was resolved
tbat the president and vice-president,
Mr. Lawrence, be appointed delegates
to attend tbe Rossland meeting, with
power to appoint substitutes shonld
either of them be unable to attend.
The question of special subjects for
the meeting was then discussed. Discriminating freight rates for Nelson
seemed to trouble everyone but on the
motion ot Mr. Peters it was resolved
that the special subjects for discussion
be decided on by the conucl, and that
then a special geuoral meeting be called to consider the council's programme.
Th9n the circular of tho Canadian
Mining Institute was read.
The membere will come via Ravel -
stoke arriving in Nelson on September
9 and will stay here three days, in
Rossland two davs, in Sandon one
day, returning to Nelson on September 18, leaving via Crow's Nest Pass
for Montreal on tho following day.
Tbe president thought that some
scheme for entertaining tho members
should be devised. On the motiou of
Mr. Jowett it was resolved that a
committee of three bo nominated by
the president to decide what was the
best and most feasible thing to do.
The president named Messrs. Kvdd,
Irving and Jowett for this committee.
A btter from the Editor of The
Miner was read stating that no notion
of general meeting wero evei sent to
him; also that ho thought that the
printing aud advertising patronage of
the board should not bo confined to
one journal.
The secretary stated that ho never
sent notices of general meetings to the
press but that as two of   the   staff  on
engine was prettily decorated with
flags and bunting, F. 1'. Gntelius,
manager of the O. & W,, W. .1. Mul-
lvehill chief dispatcher, Trail; and
Commodore Gray were the passen-
gcrs. The first passenger train over
tho line c&me iuto tho camp on June
4, 189(1, three years ago, to report the

sub-committee of the peace conference
met today, Professor Asset, of the
Dutch delegation presiding, Professor
Louis Renault, of the French delegation, explained Unit certain modifications had been made in tho report
meeting the wishes expressed by his
colleagues, at tho last session.
Captaiu A. T. Malum, U. S. N.,
declared his readiness to support the
proposals submitted in spirit of con
ciliation, though lie considered they
presented a lacuna in regard to the
position of shipwrecked men, picked
up by vessels, finding themselves accidentally on tho scene of naval engagements. Tho subcommittee however,
considered that Article 9 covered all
eventualities.
Dr. Monoto Itohiro, of tbo Japanese
delegation, announced that he proposed
to submit a motiou modifying Article I) of the Geneva convention, regarding tho disposition of sick and
wounded prisoners on the lines of tho
sub-committees report which leaves
such disposition for tho victors to decide. Tho reports being adopted the
president pointed out tho advantages
which would bo gained if during the

handling of both boats being superb.
Tho Yankee made a good showing on
the last round, gaining six seconds on
the beat to windward on tho Dominion

Montreal, June 15.���The fourth and

oup between the Dominion and Yankee
resulted iu a win for the Canadian
boat by two minutes and 22 seconds,
thus retaining the cup. The raoe v as
sailed over a triangular course and this
it was expected would make the result
problematical, the two free runs being
expected to neutralize tho D.miinion's
admitted superiority in windward
work. It will be remembered that
in the previous triangular oourse raoe
the Dominion broke her maBt while
rounding tbe first buoy, and tbo raoo
was given tn the Yankee.
Today's race was sailed iu a fluky

around to tbo southeast.

lio safety, more of the good namo of
the Provinoe and of the respect due to
it than he does of his own personal
political schemes, he would see that
the authors of that rosolution were in
dieted for inciting to violenoe.
���UNION PRINCIPLES.''
We print today the full series of resolutions  passed    by    the    Silverton
Miners' Union,   referred to  yesterday
in    these    columns.    A    worse   ser-
vioe could not be done the   authors  of
them   tban   to give  them   publicity;
but there is a publio   interest that has
to be considered, and Tbe Miner deems
it necessary that all  conoerned should
be informed   of the sentiments   entertained by the miners  of Silverton and
formally expressed in tbeso resolutions.
It   wonld   be   hard   to conceive  anything more   intemperate  and   foolish.
We   are   very   certain   that  there are
miners all over this Province who will
read them   with  shame, and who will
be the first  to repudiate them.    From
beginning to   end   there  are traces of
the   professional    agitator,   with   his
stock theories.    These men are   made,
in complete  ignorance  of its meaning
we   have   no   doubt,   to demand   the
inauguration  of a new   social  system
"based   on   the rights   and duties  of
men."   This is   moie than  a   violent
squint at communism ; it is   communism itself.   Tbey are not satisfied with
the reduction of the day to eight hours,
bot  will "seek  further rednotion   of
hours as shall   make a demand for the
daily labor of every   man   willing  to
work. "   This is an advance fiom communism  to   undisguised   confiscation.
Thev merrily  abandon   the contention
that was  early   made in their  behalf,
and declare they are not "called  upon
to maintain tbat as much work can be
done   in   a few as   in  many   hours."
There is  something to their credit  in I
this, for they are not hypocrites. They
know they cannot ds as much wrrk in
eight bours as in   ten, but it  requires
some temerity  to  demand  as a right
that the shall get the same pay for one
as for the other.
Here is another gem : "Yon ask us
to encourage capital to come in, by
promising to give it rich rewards. You
ask us to encourage men with a hundred thousand dollars to Bee that they
can here inorease it to a million. But
we deny that it is desirable to have
any man in possession of a million,
and maintain that we rightfully refuse
to aid you in encouraging capitalists
to come here with such greedy hopes, "
This is madness running riot. Without capital a mine could not be developed. It was oapital tbat established
Hucb reputation as the Kootenays enjoy. It was the development produced
by this capital tbat built up Nelson
and Silverton and Sandon, and that is
today supporting their stores and factories, railways and steamboats, and
the entire commercial and industrial
fabrio whioh has been reared in so
short a time and of which we ars all
so prond. Without capital there would
be no mines and no miners, no warehouses and no people to keep them employed, no schools, no printing offices,
no churohes. It is capital tbat has
wrought tbe beneficent change from
the wilderness of a few years ago, and
more oapital has been and is the cry of
every man who desires further development and inoreased prosperity. But
these men think it a saored duty to
discourage it.
That is not surprising, perhaps, in
tbe light of their own declaration.
They say they do not consider themselves any better tban the miners of
the Coeur d'Alenes, the men who blew
up Bunker Hill mill and in cold blood
murdered its defenders. It is a shocking confession, and will bring the
blush of shame to the cheek of many
a manly Canadian miner. This paper
rejoices that it is considered deserving
the enmity of suoh men. It would have
a more disquieting suspicion of itself
if it thought it could do anything to
command their approval. Evidently
there are varieties of miners in the
Kootenays, and the authors of these
resolutions confess themselves a very
depraved sort. We decline to believe
tbey speak for any other camp in the
country, for we do not believe that
elsewhere would lawlessness and violence be so shamelessly advocated.
The last resolution is a stain on the
good name of tbe Provinoe. The authors of it are the same, probably, and
at any rate of a similar class to those
who set themselves above Canadian
law a few months ago and attempted to
rid the Slocan of peaceable Chinamen.
For that act of lawlessness some of
them were landed in jail and are there
yet. It would be hard to say exactly
what manner or degree of punishment
should be awarded men for openly
threatening to rob, pillage, and murder, as these do in the resolution referred to. If we had nn Attorney-
Geueral who thought more of the pub-
The Vancouver World says that, the
electric light and sampling works are
about to be established in Nelson.
We have had the electric light for a
long time, and in addition to sampling
works we nre to have a tramway built
and coke and gas works constructed.
A gentleman of intelligence and discrimination, who knows the Province
and who recently visited Nelson, said
our city promised to become the leading one in British Columbia. It would
appear that the people ot Vancouver
do not know what is going on around
them.

NELSON DAILY MINER, FRIDAY, JUNE 16, 1899.
^****** *********
MINES OF J
KOOTENAY \
i******* ********
Yesterday the directors of the Fern
mine, Messrs. F. Peters, J. J. Campbell and G. Kydd, visited the Fern
mine. They found the property looking better than ever and they are of
opinion that the future prospects of the
mine are distinctly promising. Mr.
Peters brought back with him a large
nugget of the value of |48 whioh had
been taken from Hall Creek just below the Fern mine by a boy. In the
evening a meeting of the directors was
held. Mr. R. H. Finlav was appointed superintendent of the mine aud Mr.
Graves superintendent of the mill.
Work will be commenced tomorrow,
when the 10 stamp mill and cynaide
process will bo in full swing.
Mr. R. W. Brigstook, the secretary
of the company is now generally supervising operations at the mine under
the direction of the board of directors
# *   *
A meeting of the directors of the
Nelson Poorman company was held in
Vancouver last Monday. It was
resolved that work be commenced at
the mine forthwith.
* *   *
The results of the Hall Mines Company's smelting operations for the
four weeks endin g June 2, 1899 are
as follows:
1792 tons of Silver King and 1173
tons of custom ores were smelted,
yielding, approximately, 26 tons of
copper, containing 26,980 ounces of
silver, 878 tons of lead bullion, containing 866 tons of lead ; 75.870 ounces
of silver; 578 ounces of gold.
# *   *
There were rumors of a possible
miners strike at Colorado Springs a
few days ago, growing out of some
trouble with the smelter there. There
was little or no foundation for them,
as events proved, but they had considerable effect on mining stocks, oaus-
ing a rather serious slump in values.
Matters havs steadied themselves
since, and the market has recovered
its normal condition.
* *   *
Mr. R. Randolph Bruoe left laBt
night for the Windermere Distriot.
Mr. Bruce has interests in a number of
valuable claims there and has great
laitb in the future prospects cf that
district.
# #   *
Mr. John Hirsch, P. L. S., returned
yesterday from the Slocan where he
has been busily engaged on surveys for
the |past three weeks. His business
there demands having considerably increased, he has opened a branch office
at Sandon. Mr. Hirsoh informed The
Miner that the Whitewater Deep have
struok the Whitewater lead in the upper level and have now a big body of
ore in sight.
* ��   *
New Denver, June 15.���Twenty-two
carloadB of ore were shipped last week
from the Enterprise landing to the Nelson smelter thus cleaning up all the ore
in the bunkers at tbe landing. This
ore was taken from the Enterprise
mine more than 18 months ago, and
had lain at the wharf awaiting the out
oome of the several deals on that prop
erty that were being negotiated, prior
to the purchase of the mine by the
London and British Columbia Company in" conjunction with the New
Zealands Minerals.
The official report of J. D. Kendall,
examining engineer for the reoent
purchasers, has been made the subject
for a speoial report from the directors
of the L. & B. 0. to the shareholders.
It is a lengthy document and contains
much that will be pleasant reading
to tha shareholders. Speaking of the
mine property, Mr. Kendall says:
"It consists of two full claims���the
Slocan Queen and the Enterprise���and
a faotion known as the Enterprise
Fraction, the total area of which is
about 96 acres. The Slooan Queen
and Enterprise are crown granted,
and on the Enterprise Fraction two
years' assessment work has been
done. "���Spokesman Review.
by the union at its regular weekly
meeting last night in the old Armory
ball, and signed officially by the secretary :
��� "Whereas, The Amalgamated Woodworkers' Union, No. 20, of Spokane,
has made certain demands on its members', employers, the mill owners of
this city���demands which, taking into consideration the skill required,
the length of a day's work prescribed
and the small rat < of wages paid, are
exceeding moderate and iu reason
and justice should be granted ; and,
| "Whereas, The mill owners have
seen fit not to grant any of those do-
ma ids, knowing full well that if the
employes Bhould ceaso work aud receive
the support of other branches of organized labor it would paralyze building
construction now in ��� progress in this
city and seriously affect all classes of
business, and it would be detrimental
to the best interests of the citv; aud
"Whereas, The mill workmen, or a
large nnmber, at least, are residents
of the city and own their own homes
here; are law-abiding citizens, and do
not, wish to take any steps that will
disaffect the prosperity of this fair
city;and realizing also that suoh action
would cause a large number of brother-
workmen to sacrifice a groat amount
of time and money to uphold the principles of organized labor; therefore be
it
"Rssolvod, That we release our
brother-workmen from cheir obligation
to support ns in our demand, and tbat
we defer temporarily the proposition
agreed on May 31, 1899, namely, to
strike, "believing it is better citzen-
sbip on our part to maintain tbe prosperous condition of our citv and its
business men thau it would be on the
part of the mill owners who, by their
unfairness, would put in jeopardy the
best interests of���the city by refusing
our just demands.

A VALUABLE CARPET.
London, June 16.���The Cairo correspondent of the Daily Mail says: A
party of Bedouin Arabs recently attacked a oonvoy of Egyptians with tbo
holy oarpet of Mahomet, between
Mecca and Medina. A. fierce conflict
ensued. Pour soldiers and three civilians of the oonvoy were killed and the
rest fled. The Bedouins hold the carpet for ransom.
If yon :i The Miner's Special
Kootenay Nnmber it will be true.
A WISE RESOLVE.
A Big Strike Called in Spokane, Deoided Against.
The Spokesman-Review says : Jnne
15���this is the day which the
local branch of tbe Amalgamated
Woodworkers' Union, numbering 90
men, planned to make memorable in
the labor history of Spoakne by going
ont on strike because its demand of the
mill owners fcr nine hours' work
with 10 hours' pay was not acceded to,
and thereby inaugurating a general
strike that would result in the calling
out of 8500- workingmen in the city,
even^to the employes of the street-railway oompanies.
But there will be no strike. The
proposition is "suspended," The
woodworkers, to quote the words of
W. H. Kendall,, one of the prominent
members of the union, bave seen the
errors of their ways, have discovered
"on sounder second thought" thnt it
would be unwise nnd improvident to
strike on the eve of the busy mill season, and so havo decided to oontinuo
working for their present employers at
the hours and wages that now prevail.
In other words, they have withdrawn their demand for nino hours'
work at 10 hours' pay.
The whole story is told in the words
of the following  resolution,  adopted
Reduced Prices
on Short Order Meals.
From this date we will serve
Dinner daily from 12 to 8.

PREJUDICE
Is the cause of many a Batch of Bread having to be thrown
into the sewer, and a woman's time and labor gone
with it. If you weren't so prejudiced you could have
just as good success with your Bread as your neighbor.
We advise : Throw prejudice aside, and lor your next
Baking try a sack of
3  STAR   FLOUR.
Thousands are using it with success ; why not you? If it
doesn't suit you, you don't have to pay for it.
