Report of the Regular Meeting Last Night.
ACCOUNTS TO BE PAID
Aklenran Fletcher Criticises the Expenditure on Public, Works During the
Last Five Months.
The regular meeting of the Ciiy
Comif.il waa held last night at the
city offices,
The mayor, city clerk and Mr Wilson, pro toui city f.ttorney, attended
anil also   Aldermen Fletober, Hillyer,
meiitfl 186,000, He protested against
work being done by day labor. Bach
work was generally largely in access of
Ihe estimates, Ou Iho 1st of June the
Oity hail a debit of 120,000. He
thought that was too high a figure.
On looking through tha accounts be
found that tb�� expenditure on the
waterworks was fjo high. The oity
clerk explained that Ihe monthly ao
counts were laid before the Council
and passed,so Aid, Fletober must have
seen thoin. Aid. Fletcher said that
the waterworks bail already cost more
tliiui the sum appropriated foi them
inn! that the money required to com-
pjete them would have to come out
of tbo general revenue fund.
Tbe work on tbo (luino should bo
completed at once otherwise tbo lumber there wonld houseless He thought
the matter of further expenditure
should be carefully reconsidered as
he wished to go through the iignies
again himself
The 00111 mi tree then rose nud reported progress and the Council resumed the
sitting.
Letters were read from tho mavors
of Spokane, Kevelstoke, Seattle, Vancouver, Nanaimo, Victoria and Now
Westminster regretting that they
would not be able to attend tbe Do-
' minion Day celebration. Tbe invita-
! tion to tho Knslo City Fathers was
accepted. A letter form the Attorney
General re the powder magazine was
read, in which he said that it was tbo
duty of tbo city   to  take   proceedings

Aid. Fletober thought that tho City

resolved to do.
A letter from T. J. Dnucan   and   F.

to the finance committee. A letter
from the leader of the smelter band
asking for a grant of $-10 a mouth in return foi which they would play at
some public place in the town uverv

A letter was read from the   proprietress of the Queen's Hotel asking  permission to   erect   a tent   for   sleeping

that Citv was handed   round
The finance oommittee recommend
ed tho following aooounts to be paid :
Streets, $770.50; sidewalks, $217.60 j
waterworks construction, $411; sewer,
146.60; customs, $27.60; C. P. R,
freight, $12.00; Tribune for printing
and stationery, $247.70; C. H. Faw-
cntt for streets, $92.
These accounts were ordered to be
paid. Tho public works committee recommended the following improvements ;
A 12-foot  sidewalk   be  laid  on tbo
south side of   Baker   street  from   the
new Bank of Montreal building to the j celebration
Columbia and Kootenny Railway.
A four iucl,   water main be   laid o.-i
Mill street from   Cedar to Park street.
The recommendations wero adop:ed.
A letter from Mr. (Llker, the postmaster, was  read asking   for leave   to
move the premises   now used   for   tbo
post office to the   opposito  side  of the
street.    As  tbe    building   so   moved
would only be temporarily occupied he
did not think tbe fire bylaw would   be
violated.
A letter   from   Mr. S.    White,   was
read,   objecting   strongly   to   the   ie-
moval of the post office building to the
lot adjoining the  premises  he  rented
(the Nelson Hotel).
Aid. Hillyer thought tbat   Mr.  Gil-
ker's request should be granted.    Aid. j
Fletcher     thought     thnt the     bylaw
should be  obanged   so as   to give the i
City power to order the building to be !
romoved whenever tho City   desired to
do so.    The Council decided to do this
aud the   bylaw,   No. 36,   was   accordingly reconsidered and adopted,
Mr.  Jeskiwinz  then   addressed   tho
council with reference to a sidewalk on
Frout     street, (from   Cedar   to  Park
streets),   which, he   stated, had  been
isked for some time ago but as yet had
not beon constructed.    The Mayor   explained tht   the   Board of Works  hud

Mr. Collins pointed out the financial

Council had occasioned and begged
that Council would allow them tn run

a month tax for every machine in use.
After a long discussion it was resolved
on the motion of Aid. Fletcher.secoud-
ed by Aid. Hillyer, that on and after
July 4th the machines be either confiscated or removed ont of the City. Aid,

The Hague, .Tune 10.���Dr. Zorn, the
member of the German delegation to
the international peace conference who
was despatched ouFriday by Count.Von
Muuster, the ohief Gel man delegate,
after a conference with bis colleagues
to inform Emperor William personally
of the condition cf affairs in regard to
the board of arbitration question, returned to Scbeveniugen today from
Berlin.
It is said, however, that owing to
the absence Of the Emperor, Dr. Zorn
was only able to consulc with the officials jf the German foreign office, Dr.
Zorn is desperately reticent regarding
his mission but it is understood he
obtained the impression at Berlin that
all hope need not be abandoned of
affeotiug an rnderstaudiug regarding
the organization of au abrtration board
hy amalgamating the various schemes.
It ie understood tbat Emperor William will ren-h a decision this week.
Matters therefore romaiu unchanged,
and committee will not meet until
the Kaiser's decision is known. Tbe
general desire of the conference favors
an established arbitration tribunal, recourse to which shall be open. It is
believed that if Germany declines to
participate, the others will still achieve
some such lesult before separating.
Tbey may decide upon a draft
scheme, pending Germany's decision.
The Berliuer Tageblatt says it understands that Dr Zorn'a instruction
involve a concession regarding the arbitration question. Government circles, from present indications, desire
some positive result if there can be an
absolute guarantee that the scheme
will  not harm German interests.
London, June 19���The correspondent of the Daily News at The Hague
says:
Dootor Znrn, whom Emperor William summoned on Friday by a sp cial
messenger, arrived in Berlin yesterday
(Saturday) morning accompanied by
Mr. Hollis of the United States delegation. They only had time for breakfast and at 10 wero driven to the imperial palace, where instant admission
was granted them by tbe kaiser himself, who was waiting for them. They
bud a further audience with his majesty Sunday and were expected to
leave Berlin on their return to The
Hague this afternoon On their return to Tne Hague this afternoon they
were appointed joint messengers for
tho conference becaue they had been
come intimate friends sinco they met
here. Dr Zorn speaks very little English, but Mr.   Hollis   speaks  German
To the Editor of The Miner:
Sir-So many argum outs have been
put forward by the spokesmen of tho
various unions tbat it has been difficult to follow tbe eight hour oontro
jversy through all its different and disconnected stages. It setnis to be considered, however,that the mine owners
and mine managers aie by nature "tyrants" who, apart from their own interests, and even iu opposition thereto,
feel a pleasure in grinding down tho
wnrkingnian, robbing him of his wages
or importing al) kiuds of u ndesiruble
labor into the Provinco. Since the
owners are usually content to leave
tbe initiative to their representatives,
it is clear, therefore, that the managers���alien aud otherwise���make up
an exceptionally foolish body of men,
who wish to do all the harm possible
to the country with which their employers' interests are bound up.
It may, hosvever, be snhmitted that
their action in not accepting the eight
hour law wi'h enthusiasm, is not
entirely the resolt of prejudice They
are appointed for the purpose of making the mines, and consequently the
country, a success, nnd ensuring ns
far as possible, respectable interest on
the money which British Columbia
has received from hor friends. It
may be regarded as axiomatic that to
make British Columbia widely known,
to inaugurate an era of prosperity for
the merchant, aud to increase tbe demand for all tbe better classes nf labor,
it is of the utmost importance to tbo
country that the mines at present on
the market shall mako good returns to
their shareholders. The amount of
money sent out of the Provinco would
be small indeed compared with the returns from tbe period of prosperity
which wonld ensue.
Apart from the argument "ad homi-
uem" three contentions appear mainly
to be relied upon :
1. That miners can and do perform
as much work in ten hours as in eight.
2. That even if this is not bo, the
mineB oan afford to pay tho higher
rate for the shorter hours.
8. That if they cannot do so, the
eight hours bill is necessary ; and sooner than repeal it, or accept tho lower
scale, it would be better to close down
the minos indefinitely and abandon
the country. (Tbis latter from tho New
Denver Ledge.)
1. All      experience    goes   to   show
that a man  on   contract   can do more

With regard to   the richness   of  the.

the case that tbis orej exists   in   small

and if $8  a  day represent  starvation

low this argument and leave tbe conn
try to return to the pes tl ion it held in
tho eighties. It seems hard to believe,
however, that a man reoeiving an
average of $00 a montb iu cash (after
paving for his board and lodging i is a
very awful example of the tyranny of
the capitals!. With regard to tho necessity of shortening tbe hours, it
appears strmige, if thn matter was so
urgent, that no complaint should have
been made before the Government invited���or rather demanded it. If tho
matter bad been properly discussed the
Legislature would probably have Been
the Rdvisiability of at least post polling the question until such time as the.
country was more advanced, when tbe]
purchasing power of $3 would probably have been much greater, and the
wagea question would have adjusted
itself without much diflioulty. At the
present time the oountry is not ready
for the e'lunge. With the mimy impediments to steady work and the drawbacks of the mountain climate the
average miner comes into the country j
to save money as quickly ns possible
and the means of recreation are so few
that he has little inducement to spend
it. If he lias two hours torn away
from his work, he finds it difficult tu
enjoy them, and he is very naturally
disinclined to pay for them. At the
same time the more intelligent miners
realise that the employers should not
be jailed npon to do so. Whatever
may be said to tho contrary, thire is a
strong feeling among the men against
the Government for Interfering at all
in the matter. Especially is tbis the
case with men who own prospects
and property here���the real backbone
of the country. Still more will it bo the
case when thev sec capital d* I Wing
back from the country, frightened by
unwise legislation,and realise tbat the
properties which tbey have staked and
on which they have perhaps worked
every summei, are unsaleable and
worthless.    Yours faithfully.

Washington, Juno 18.���The industrial commission yesterday hoard a
statement from L, M, Rookwood, an
oil producer of Zelienople, Pa., in opposition to the Standard Oil trust.
Mr. Rookwood declared the Standard
company had driven independent refineries into bankruptcy and servitude,
and he denounced the course pursued
in severe terms. He held the railroads
especially responsible for tbe condition
ot affairs.
Mr. Lookwood wns free in the uso
of epithets, characterizing both tho oil
company and tbe railroad officials as
highwaymen and brigands.
"If yon have got to be robbed,'' be
exclaimed, "it does not matter muoh
whether you are hold up by Dick Tur-
pin with a pistol or by John Rookfel-

FOR    GRAVE    CONSIDERATION.
We   print   elsewhere   in   this  issue
the substanoe  of  an  interview   with
Major  Haider,   speoial   mining   commissioner for Rector's Telegram Oompany. as it  appeared in The  Viotoria
Colonist of Friday   last.    Tbe  matter
of it is of the gravest possible   intorost
to British Columbians.   Major  Haider
expresses disgust with   the  alien  law
and   the   eight-honr   law,   and    says
that our mining laws   and regulations
generally are years behind  tbe  times;
that they are not oaloulated to encour-
agj development, and that their influ
ence is unfavorable to the introduction
of   foreign  oapital.    Even  should we
flatter   ourselves   with   the  assurance
tbat the  gentleman   is   entirely   mistaken in his  views, we should still be
forced    to    regard     this    expression
of    them   as a very   serious   matter.
For Major Haider represents   the most
influential news  agenoy in tbe world ;
he is sent o'.it   here  to study the raining situation, with   instructions to report all the conditions   affecting it ex-
aotly as they appeal to  his  judgment,
and these are the opinions he has formed and   which he will   send   baok   to
be read by tbe millions in Europe who
are acoustomed to look to  Router's for
their   foreign   information.    He  says
tbat he will   advise British and Euro
pean   iapitalists to   keep   away  from
British   Columbia,   and that with  all
its discouragements   the  Transvaal is
to ho preferred.
A company having the reputation of
Renter's would not commission an
unknown or incompetent person to
undertake a duty of this kind. Let us
hope, notwithstanding, tbat matters
are not as bad a^ tbey appear in his
eyes, and that he may yet persuade
himself to moderate his views and
present the situation in a more favorable light. At the same time we in
the Province are bound to take oounsel
with ourselves, and inquire whether
it is true we are, to this really alarming extent, our own worst enemies
Of the effect of recent legislation there
is unfortunately no donbt; it is as
injurious as it well oould be If our
rulers bad set ont to do their worst to
disoonrage mining development in the
Provinoe, they oonld not have been
more successful. British capital,
frightened hy the conditions in the
Transvaal, had turned in our direction and was beginning to flow in
gener ous proportions. First the alien
law, and then the eight-hour law
were introducted, and now the situation is one of extreme distrust and disquiet. Our mineral wealth is worth
no more to us than so muoh dirt without oapital to develop it. The general
laws are not so bad, but it may be
tbey are antiquated and muoh in need
of revision. In view of Major Halder'B
conclusions we cannot too soon set
about a comprehensive review of the
entire situation. But even should
we do this, what can we expect from
the Ministers who have led the Province into the morass in which it is
now floundering?
lately, aud this may  be   dono   within
an hour, at a time   when  the  owners
of the   paper   are   asleep.    There  are
other questions which   require timo to
investigate,   and which evolvo out  of
cortain circumstances   which must   he
Well   ascertained, and iu such   a  case
a writer   would   not bo above consulting one of the proprietors   if   he  happened to meet   h;m, just as   he would
oonsult or tulk  ovor the question with
any intelligent or   well informed citizen.    We havo  already   shown that in
some   oases   the   conclusions   reached
differed fiom tho views entertained by
the proprietors.   They must leave that,
to the judgment   of those  who are responsible, and   who  have some special
training and some   knowledge   of  tho
publio   mind.    It   is   a notorious faot
that   the   London   Times    owes    its
weight in the Brtish community largely to the fuot   that   it found out  what
tho publio wanted, then took the samo
view.   This would apply to some questions, largely   intoriiaiion.il,   and it is
not so easy a o urse  to pursue as some
may   think,   i-ince  one   of   tho  most
difficult things is to  ascertain and express the opinion of a whole  community   on   a   particular   question.    That
is   a   mattor   of    experience,   special
knowledge,   aud   good  judgment.    In
view of these   facts   and many  others
whioh might  he  mentioned   the view
that the publio must  look   to see who
is behind a paper in order to sot a proper value on its utteraunes  is silly, for
in  a great many oases there is nothing
behind a   paper's   utterances   but  the
public."

The   Spokesman-Review    makes    a
misstatement of fact when it says that
Great  Britain   reduoed  duties ou imports from   Canada.    It   should  know
that it was Canada  that   reduced   the
duties on imports  from Great Britain.
It is right, however,   iu going   on   to
express its   surprise that  despito  this
preferential arrangement  between tho
two, United   Stittos exports to Canada
bave   largely   increased.    It   accounts
for it  by   the   superior   excellence  of

tbe result   itself   is   disappointing  to
those who first suggested and  warmly

THE   PRESS   AND THE   PUBLIO:
The public, we take it, care little
who is behind the newspaper, and tbe
subject is therefore scarcely deserving
serious disaussion. But it came up
recently in Winnipeg, provoked by a
statement to the effect that the proprietors or shareholders of a newspaper
should be known to the publio, in order tbat a proper value should ho set
on its utterances. Tbis somewhat
novel doctrine is challenged by The
Free PresB, whose views, whioh ar?
undoubtedly sound, may prove interesting anil will at least assist m clearing away lingering misconceptions.
It says: "A daily paper of standing
and repute must keep in touch witb
publio opinion and keep well informed and abreast of tbe times, and when
a question is discussed it must bave
been viewed from different points, the
facts must be known, as far as possible, and some conclusion must be
reached as to the proper view. This
is the work of the trained journalist,
and most of these questions are debated and dealt witb as publio questions
and without any referenoe to what the
investor mav think or say on the subject. In a notable case recently a
prominent Ontario journal took a view
of a public question diametrically opposed to the view of the gentleman at
the head of tho oompany owning the
property. His view differed from
tbat of the editor, bnt nevertheless
the paper presented and contended for
the view of the editor alone. Important questions orop up which the paper
must discuss and pronounoe on lmmed-
The travelling public will have every
reason to be satisfied with the new
train service, which is all that could
be desired. But thorj will be wonder
and disappointment at the want of enterprise on the part of the Post-Offlje
Department. There is a fast train service over the Crow's Nest, bringing
Winnipeg within forty-five hours of

this to facilitate mail communication.

^mi^ni;uiiUi^a^^^u,m,wuiUt;wiWUiUi^um^
A dispatch from Montreal to the
Coast papers on Friday last conveyed
the astounding intelligence that a
slump in Payne sxioks amounted on
the aggregate issue to the enormous
sum of $1,100,000. The exasperating
part of it is that the slump was caused
by the enforcement of the eight-hour
law. Over a million in value gone at
one swoop. It promises to he a pretty
dear law before the Province is done
with it.
The Miner presents its compliments
to the Mavor, Aldermen and citizens
of Vancouver, and regrets that it will
be unable to aocpet their invitation
to attend the celebration of Domiuiou
Day in that city. The fact is, Nelson
is doing something very pretentious
in tbe same line, and as it promises to
surpass in interest anything under
taken by the Coast cities Tbo Minor
conld not think of missing it.

A gentleman who has had opportunities for observation, as well as the
abilities to arrive at sound conclusions
with regard t-j mining in British Columbia as oompared with other countries, is now staying at the Hotel
Driard, on his way to the Klondike.
He is Major Albert H. Haider, F.
G. S., special mining commissioner to
Renter's Telegram Company.
Major Haider has   bad   considerable
mining experience in other  countries,
and is in a position to express an opin-
on as to the disabilities the mining interests lie under in  this country.   He
has carefully   observed   the conditions
appertaining to mining since   his   arrival, and has endeavored as far as possible to ascertain tbe causes that   have
hitherto retarded  mining development
in this country, as well as  the reasons
why English and European capitalists,
though thev    have   been  endeavoring
for   a   considerable   time   to  interest
themselves, are  unable   to do so.    He
has coinii to   the  conclusion  tbat   the
chaotio and  unworkable   condition  of
the mining   law is   the  cause   of the
want of progress in this province.    He
is under the impression that   the  law
has been framed by   men   whose mining experience, if any, was   based  on
knowledge gained forty years ago, and
who are utterly ignorant  of up-to-date
requirements.
Major Haider contrasts the mining
laws of the Transvaal with those of
tbis provinoe, and is in a position to
advise his European friends that under present conditions it is far better
and safer to invest in the much-maligned Transvaal than in British Columbia or the Yukon. This is such a
serious matter for this country that
the Colonist asked Major Haider what
he would suggest as an improvement
on our present mining laws, because
If he advises European capitalists as
he speaks, his power as Renter's mining comimsssioner will do very serious harm.
Major Haider points out tbat no
country can develop its mines except
the government exacts a proper revenue
from mining, since no government can
foster an industry with out revenue.
In the Transvaal the government ex-
aots a revenue of $500 per claim per
annum under a prospector's license
and $2,240 per annum under a mining license taking in proportion their
claims in size to one claim here. The
fact of charging $2.50 per annum for
a claim in British Columbia is absolutely suicidal to the mining interests, inasmuch as immense areas of
country are staked out by so-onlled
prospectors who in many instances
never even do any assessment work,
but contuue to re-locate year after
year the same property in other names.
Major Haider also points ont that he
sees no provision in the law by whioh
proper government inspectors supervise
the amount of assessment work that is
supposed to be done, and says that
nothing is easier than for a man to
value the assessment work at $100
when perhaps not $10 worth of work
has been executed, nnd asks when this
system is going to end. It is keeping
capital out of the country, killing development of tbe mining resources.
and, ouriously enough, is absolutely
inimical to the employment of labor.
He is also of the opinion that mining is meant for mining men, and not
for speculation or pleasure, and that
the law should be framed so that men
oannot sit down year after year and
blook the development of a great country The Major is strongly in favor of
a law similar to that prevailing in
Home of the Australian colonies, by
which tho ownership of a claim shall
ubsolutely depend upon the owner em-
.iliiymg a certain number of miners nt
work, with the alternative of paying
i; proportionately reasonable claim
lioense to tbe government. Tho latter
alternative Major Haider suggests, as
he foresees that it might bo impossible
for mine owners at all times to procure
labor at reasonable rates. He expresses
himself as very much disgusted with
the alien law and with the eight'-
hour law, which would never be tolerated in even Boer-ridden Transvaal.
Major Haider further points out a
fact which which will always militate against mining successes in this
oountry, and that is the high rate of
wages Tho rate of pay of $3.50 per
diem can only be borne by extremely
nob mines, and ho states as his emphatic opinion that until something is
dDne to introduce cheaper mining labor, that 99 out of every 100 properties
in this oouutry will never be worked,
and it will be his duty to point out in
his ofHci.il capacity to European capitalists. The remedy, he says, lies in
our own hands.
Major Haider referred again to his
previous remarks about olaim licenses
and the compulsory worikngof claims,
and pointed out thnt if this ssytem
were adopted it would compel present
claim owners to either work their
olaims, pay a satisfactory olaim license, whioh he suggests shall not be
less than $250 per annum, or quit and
allow others with means at their disposal to come in and develop the country; but he snys that European capitalists are not onmiiig here to pay silly
and ridiculous prices for ubsolutely
undeveloped properites.���Victoria Colonist.

S. F. Ralston, superintendent nf the
Mammoth and Diamond Hitch properties on the north fork of Kettle river
wus in town rodayv He reports that
the development work on both properties continues to be carried out on au
extensive scale. In addition to the
existing tunnel and two shafts a double compartment shaft is now being
sunk on the ledge upon the Mammoth. This will be tho main work
iug shaft and near it will bo installed
a compressor plant as soon as further
depth is attained. The face of the tunnel is all in ore of shipping grade. A
number of prominent mining men
who reoently visited the properties
whioh aie controlled by the same management have expressed the belief that
the Mammoth and Diamond Hitch
will soon be dividend payers; iu fact a
considerable shipment of ore will be
made as soon as the Gran by smelter
here begins operation.���Grand Forks

It is stated that the Hon. Charles
H. Mackintosh, former lieutenant governor of the Northwest Territories, and
more lately Canadian manager of the
British America Corporation, has
formed a new English company, with
immense capital, for the purpose of
carrying on mining operations in
British Columbia, says the Toronto
World. The rumor that he had left the
B. A. O. was published in the daily
press some time ago, and it is now
stated that he intimated to his associates before he left for England this
last time that he had something of
this kind in contemplation. The statement now made is that he has behind
him a corportaion with $20,000,000
oapital,and that Lord Aberdeen, formerly governmor General, is at its
head.
