The Result of the Recent
Eight-Hour Law.
A MINERS' RESOLUTION
Slocan Oity Miners Stick Out For Three
Dollars and   a   Half for
Eight Hours.
Labor troubles in tlio Slocan have
begun already and more may be expected on tho 1st of Jnne, Mr. Mae-
Douald, manager of thn Noble Five
was iu town yesterday, and he informed a Miner reporter that his tain had
notified him that tney would not no-
cept i-Jj.Ut) for an eight hum day aud
that accordingly he had closed his
mine down on Monday. The mill was
still miming, and would continue to
run until tlio ore bins were emptied,
when it would shut down also, riu
further said that the Payne, Last
Chance and .Sovereign mines bad also
shut down because the men bad signified their refusal to accept ��3 for the
shorter hours. Tho Last Chance
would probably havo shut down soon
for a short while on account of water
in any case, but on account of tbo
trouble with the men it would liki
the others, remain closed indefinitely.
Mr. Macdonald reported idso chat
the miners were now leaving the Slocan by every train, aud that many of
them were going to the Coour d'Alimes
to take tho place of those union men
who recently were forced to quit tho
country.
Enquiry at the offices of local mining companies elicited the fact that
they had so far received no buoIi notification from their men, and that everything was going on as usual.
The following which   explains
has been reoeived   by Tho
publication:
At a pnbile meeting held last munt
the following resolutions were passed
aud a copy ordered sout t( the Sandon,
Silverton and Nelson Miuer's Unions
and also a eopy to the Press.
Slocan City, May 27, 18119.
Whereas certain mine owners have
publicly announced their indentions of
reducing tho wages of all mine workers
upon the taking effect of the eight-
hour law, and whereas their reasons,
as set forth in such nuuonncemant, for
attempting such, are either the result
of selfishness or lack of sound reasoning aud shows an unfairness in attempting to arbitrarily establish a reduced scale of wages. Aud we further
believe that well paid, healthful, intelligent workers make desirable resi
dents of a country nud that humanity
and oivilization in North America now
demands better conditions and hotter
wages forits workers than prevailing iu
European and other countries, and that
the Government has done a oommond-
ftble act in establishing the eight-hour
law in mining. And believing that the
best interests of the country will be
promoted by the enforcement, of the
eight-hour law and maintaining
regular rate of wages as
paid in mines.
Therefore, Be it Besolved���That
we, the miners, prospectors and citi-
zenB of Slocan City, hereunto sob
scribed, pledged ourselves to abide by
the actions of the Minor's Unions of
the Slocan and we extend to them
our sympathy aud support in their
efforts to maintain the presout scale
of wages in the mines, and that we
will not work for loss or pay less than
the Union rato.

The Miner is in the midst of moving. This number is issued from its new quarters on Baker Street,
between the Imperial Bank and the James Lawrence
Hardware Company, where the offices of the paper
will hereafter be located. To-day it is expected the
whole plant will be in running order, and the job
printing, which has of necessity been allowed to stand
for the past couple of days, will be attended to at once.
% The new premises are commodious, and with extensive
alterations that are being made to the plant,The Miner
will be able to do better work than ever. The job department will be the best equipped in the Kootenays.
A trial order will convince you of this. No job will
be too small, and none too large. Nelson is going
ahead rapidly, and The Miner is keeping pace with it.

SUPPOSED TO BE KILLED.
Paris, May 30.���A striking sign of
the calm which has come upon public
opinion and the utter indifference of
the peoplo generally to the revision
proceedings was shown in tho fact that
there was not a suflioieut attendance
<,fjjthe general publi�� in the court of
canssation to constitute a quorum of
spectators in the case of a public hearing, and court ushers had to go out into tba street aud get tba SfUer* in the
Place Dauphin and induce tbera to
conie iuto court.
Paris, May 80. ���H. de Beaupre said
that if iu 1894 the offioers of the court
martial had thought it was not their
dnty to show Dreyfus tho documents
concerning hira, the judges not being
lawyers, had erred through acting iu
good faith.
M. de Beaupro read a fresh report
drawn up by M. Maun, the Procurator General, enumerating ten fresh
facts in favor of Dreyfus, viz. :
1. Tbo Henri forgery.
'2. The changing of the date of the
bordereau to August instead   of April.
3. Contradictions of the handwriting experts.
4. The absolute identity of the paper upon which the bordereau was
Written with Major Esterhazy's letter
paper.
6. The sentence "Am starting for
the manoeuvres," which could not
have been written by Dreyfus.
0. The police report withheld by the
court martial.
7. Lieutenant Colonel Henri's woep-
iug confession in Bnrtulu's office.
8. The Panizzardi despatch.
9. Official documents proving that
Dreyfos had no relations with foreign embassies.
10. A document demonstrating that
Dreyfus never oonfessed guilt. M.
Mann's report concluded with nn expression in favor o;' a retriul of Captain
Dreyfus.
M. Ballot de Beanpre said that one
new fact from a legal point of view
was the disoovery that the bordereau
was written on precisely the same paper as that used by Major Esterhazy.
The Judges iu J8U4 did not know this
aud M. de Beaupre declared that on
his soul and conscience according to
his conviotions the bordereau was
written by Esterhazy. He deplored
the attaoks of revisionists upon the
army, but said that the honor of the
army was not dependent upon
the retention of au innocent man on
Devil's Island.
M. de Beaupre concluded: "I do not
ask you lo proclaim the inuocence of
DreyfuB," oried hu, with profound
emotion, "But it is with firm conviction nnd lively sense of my duty and
responsibility that, say there is reason
to ^rant a revision of the trial of 1894
and sond Dreyfus for retrial bofore an.
othor court whose task will be to give
a deoislon with a full knowledge of
I the fuels.    My report is ended. "
Cries   of "Bravo" and other  marks
of approbation filled the   court   room.
The court adjourned at 5 o'clock
without incident. M. Mauui will
I continue his spoech tomorrow. The
news that M. do Beaupre had directly
ascribed the authorship of the bordereau to Major Estorhn/.y produced a
condition of sopefaotion amoog mem
bars of the League of Patriots iu the
prociuts of the oourt.
Manila, May 31.���Two petty offioers of the United States hospital ship

The Hague, May 30. ��� Netvaderlan I
prints today tho text of the Russian
proposals regardi ,g mediation and
arbitration.
Part 1���Deals with the desirability
of seeking a solution of international
disputes by the mediation of friendly
powers aud states that such good offices
whether sought or preferred shall bear
strictly the character of frieudly couu-
seland in no way of compulsory force.
Part 2���Deals with international
arbitration which it declares "Tho
most efficacious aud equitablo means
of settling questions regarding tbo international application of treaties."
"With a view of facilitatingreconrse
to arbitrationjthe powers agree to formulate a con ni in arrangement for the
employment of international arbitration and for fundamental principles to
be observed in drawing up rules ot
procedure to be followed peuding inquiry into the dispute and, the pronouncement of the arbitrators docisiou.
The application of these principles and
procedure may bo modified in virtue of
special a greements between the state
which may have recourse to aribtra-
tion."
Part   3���Deals   with    international
commission on   inquiry.    It  provides
as follows:   '"In   cases  of divergence
causing   international    litigation    on
local   circumstances which cannot  be
settled by ordinary diplomatic  means,
but do not   involve honor   or vital interests,    the   governments    interested
agreo to institute an international commission of inquiry to investigate   impartially   all questions of  fact.    Each
government   interested   shall   appoint
two   members   of   the      commission.
These   four  shall   ohooie   a fifth who
shall be president   of the commission.
It the votes   are dividod as to this   an
appeal shall   be   made to another government or to a third party to appoint
a  president.    The   Russian    proposals
are followed by   a  code of arbitration
indicating  prooedure on these lines. "
"The states intore tod that have accepted arbitration shall sign a  special
act of compromise clearly setting forth
the questions to be  arbitrated and full
factB connected   therewith.    The compromise   thus continued may  provide
for arbitration   upon the whole matter
in dispute on points dotorminod.    The
governments   interested   may   intrust
the functions of arbitration either to a
sovereign third power cr to a   tribunal
of   arbitration.    Such   tribunal   shall
be seleoted in the same niaunor as commissions   of   inquirv   aud if difficulty
arises iu  choosing tbo   fifth arbitrator
as president the other  powers shall be
asked by common consent   to  appoint
a   president.    The     other   clauses  of
proposals   deal   with   the dotnils as to
place of meeting, appointment of conn
sel the   procedure of the tribunal   and
cognate   matters iu tho case of a compromise or when   overpowering   influence   or   corruption ia   proved ou   the
part  of the arbitrators.

THE   l.Y-LAWS.
No great harm has been elone by Iho
defeat  of   the   City Hall   by-law.    It
only means that the Council   nnd   the
-ity nnd other officials will hnve to do |
with    their   proscut    accommodation I
for some timo   longer.   Thia   may bo '
inconvenient, but it is not a hardship;
no one is wiougcd or  injured   by   it. I
They   have managed   for a   conple  of
years, without loss   of health or,    impairment of   temper, and if  neoessary
can endure it for two years longer. Its
defeat was not dne to  the   parsin ony
of the ratepayers.    If tho  Council hi d
asked for a larger sum, the probability t
is it would   have   been   voted.    There
wero many electors who oould not con- !
vince   themselves   thnt a building   in
keeping with tho importance of Nelson '
oould he erected for ten   thousnnd dol-1
lars.    They regarded it as little   better
than n waste of money to put it into a
structure that  would come within the
scope of so modest a sum, and   argued
with     themselves   that   it   would   be
wiser to wait auother   yenr  and   then
vote money enough to put up a   building that would bo n credit to the City.
Tho   Miner   is   strongly   disposed    to
viow tho matter as   the   Council   did.
The   proposed   building   would   haio
served   our   turn   until   Nelson     had
twenty   thousand   of a  population   or
more,nnd then when the City had outgrown it there  would   have   been less
ancrifioe in discarding it for a   better.
However   pretentious   we   may   build
next year, we can  scarcely   expect  to
provide for the requirements of a Oity
of twenty   or   twenty-fivo    thousand,
nnd   another   one   will   be   necessary
whether tho cost   is   ten   thousand   or
twice ten   thousand.    However,   it  is
not a very grave matter, and although
defeated thero is no cause for tears.
The ratepayers have voted the other
Bums requiied, and with majorities
thnt shonld impress the members of the
Connoil with a deep sense of their responsibility. Thoy have taken the
Aldermen at their word, and voted the
public credit for all the money thnt
was said to be necessary. On the aldermen now rests the duty of proving
themselves worthy of this confidence.
For the thirty thousand dollars stipulated in the by-law, the Oonncil agree
to put our water supply system into
thorough order and up to requirements. The people look to them to do
this, and to do it with all reasonable
despatch. They are expected also to
make the eleotrio light plant serviceable to a degree satisfactory to all
concerned. They have been voted the
credit they asked, and if they fail to
meet publio expectation the fault will
be theirs.
Promoters of the tramway and of
the gas plant are required to take notice that the citizens of Nelson have
voted them the franchises they desired
on the conditions to which they were
themselves only too glad to assent.
They have got all they asked; now let
then; give nil they promised. Let
faith be kept all around. The companies are expected to prosecute their enterprises with the diligence and energy thoy were so profuse in promising
when seeking to obtain the good will
of tho people. The people took thorn
at their word, and they want thnt
word redeemed to the letter. Few
corporations escape trouble with companies that have obtnine municipal
franchises, but the fault is largely with
the corporations themselves. If the
companies from the very beginning nre
made to livu up to their ongagments
and undertakings and given to understand that a bargain with n municipality is quite as binding and sacrod as
any other, matters can be made to run
smoothly and the trouble will be re
diicod to a minimum. But give I hum
an inoh, and they will stndy day and
night bow to take an ell.
distinctions between   nationalities.    1
only distinguish between  good   people
and bad, between those  who are loyal
nnd those who aro not.    You n'1 know
that when these  goldfields   we"-  lirsl
discovered the law was that  if a   man
lived here tor   a   year  he receivod the
franchise,   but   when  tho influx of all
sortH of people from all countries begun
to stream into the land,   I had to protect the   old   burghers    from     being
swamped.    (Hear.)   I would not hnve
been worthy of   my position  had I allowed the newcomers to  swoop   away
aud overwhelm tho old burghers of the
land.    (Hoar,   hear).    Thau   tho   law
was made   that after  two  years' residence a man could become naturalised.
As  suoh,   lie  could  voto   far   Second
Raad members,   Commandnnls,   Field
cornets,   and Landdrests.    Thou, after
a further two years'   residence,   making four years in all, he  wns  eligible
for the Second   Rnud,  and   from   that
time he would   still  havo to wait another ten   years   before receiving   the
franchise.    The  reason  for   that  h.w
was that at the  time   the   "voortick-
kers" were a small com puny, and there
wore thousands upon thousands of now
peoplo   streaming   into   tho   country.
But then tho law was so stringent that
a man had to wait   twenty  years   be-
I fore ho could become a burgher.    Now
it is fonrteeen years altogether.    When
I tho   law   was   framed,   the   burghers
, numbered   only   about   12,000  in   all,
and   then     could   easily    have   heon
, swampod by the newcomers,   had   the
; latter received the franchise  at   once.
i Out   now   the   burghers   number   be-
i twoen 30,000 and   40,000   and,   there-
i fore I now wish   to    propose   Io  the
Volk raad that  it shall reduce by  five
years the time within which the right
of voting shall bo  granted to newcomers.    (Cheering).    By this moans they
will bo   able   more  easily   to  become
registered voters,   and   after   a time,
perhaps in ten yenrs  time, I,   if I am
still   alive, or,   if not, my  successor,
will propose that tho  period   be   still
further reduced.    (Renewed cheering.)
Yon see that I be time in which a man
gets the franchise in Europe, America,
and other countries  is shorter than   it
is   hue; but those   countries  contain
We have seen this   statement   made   a
number of  times.    Mr. Joseph  Stock-
ham   is    President   of    the     Sandon
Miner's Union, and it will bo conceded that he is in a position to speak for
tho miners of that section.    At a miner's: meeting in Silverton a   few   days
ago he, accord ing to the   report of The
Silvertoninn,   a   careful   nud   reliable
pai er,   "criticised   the   notion of   the

was bofore tho Legislature,    and   thus
give the miners in the Slocan a chance
to organize   and bo   prepared   for any
move on tho part of the mine owners. "
This   is   especially commended to the
attention  of  Tbo     Rossland  Record,
which has maintained without a blush
or  n  wink that  the   legislation  wns
not a surprise.

A NARROW ESCAPE
WORKMAN BURIED TO THE NECK
IN EARTH.
Baker Street Neaily the Scene of a Tragedy Through the   Cave-in
of a Drain,
What miuht have been a very seri-
ow< aooident occurred this morning
about 8130 on tinker street west of
Stanley. Workmen are enpitiRed in
digging a drain and running sewer
pipes to connect with the main ou Bit
ker struct from Evaus & Go's warehouse. Tho drain ia now down about
8 feet. While oue man named Maguus
was working nt the section of the
drain near the middle of the road,
part of tbo bank came down on biro
without tlio slightest warning, burying him up to the neck.
An alarm was quickly raised, and a
orowtl gathered from all quartern,
Among tho first arrivals were T. G.
Proctor and Mr. J. J. Campbell, of the
smelter, who brought shovels. Several
ethers around also assisted and very
carefully the earth was dugout around
the buried one. He was finally extricated without having suffered any
serious damage.
It was a very fortunate thing for
him that he happened to be standing
upright when the earth fell, as otherwise he would almost certainly have
been smothered, owing to the narrow
ness of the drain and the quantity of
the earth that fell.

VERY PLEASING PERFORMANCE
AN ODD PIONEER.
the
The First White Man  to Discover
Crow's Nest Pass.
Mr. Phillips, of Tobacco Plains,
who is at present in Nelson attending
the assizes, is one of the most interesting of the pioneers of the Kooteunys
that are still among us. Away back in
the early days when the preseuoe of
the precious minerals iu tb" Province
was but a matter of Indian tradition
and legoud Mr. Phillips was agent for
the Hudson Bay Company at Tobacco
Plains, and the surrounding country,
when all the country was valued for
was furs. Time went on aud many
chauges of all kinda have vastly altered
the'resources of the country, but Mr.
Phillips has had his home in the snne
place.
Wheu the great, rush of the sixties
to Wild Horse Creek took place Mr,
Phillips was stationed near there for
some time.
He visited tho spot where Nelson
now stnnds in 18(35, the only inhabitant of this part then being a Mr. D.
Fry. who had a little cabin near hero
and made a precarious living ns a fisherman and huuter, Mr. Phillips was
the first white man tj discover the
Crow's Nest Pass there not being evou
an Indian trail through it when he
crossed in i878. He discovered the indications of coal wbero the great coal
mine near Fernie is now located In
18(14, owing to the great rush of gold
seekers the H. B. Company were selling flour at $2.50 n pound, the only way
to get it in being bv pack horses from
the Pacific Coast, whore it was brought
from Chili by schooners For that one
year prices for everything were exorbitant, but soon became lower. All supplies had to be brought into the country in summer, as in wintor the trails
were impassable, there not being
enough traffic to keep them open.
East Koote.iav was then looked upon as
the ooming country, while West Kootenay was little thought of except by the
trapper and fisherman.

A meeting was held last night at the

expressed their willingness to join
