Nelson, British Columbia, Friday, September 15,  1899.
Tenth Year
A  SHORT  INTERVIEW.
The Government Will Continue in Office
and Pursue the Same Policy They
Have Heretofore Adopted-
Mr. Garter Cotton, Finance and
Land and Works Minister, is staying
at the Iliinii*.
Mi. Cotton was courtesy itself| to
The Miuer'B reporter when ho waited
21 him last night at the Hume Hotel,
"But" said he, "I have really nothing
to say. Let me see, you are on The
Miner's staff. That paper opposes the
Government. Well. I bat makes no
difference to me. I "should be most
happy to tell you anvthi'g if there
was anything nt interest to the son-
era] public to tell.''
Mr. Cotton was then pressed to give
his opinion on the Eigbt-Hocrs act.
"People seem to imagine that the
Government can repeal the net" mid
Mr. Cotton. "Of course yon must
know enough to know that that is nof
the case. Tho act is now law and the
Government's duty is to see that the
act is properly carried out. The Legislature alone can repeal, alter or ameud
the act and its the next meeting of the
House is not until January nothing
can be done until then.
"I may say though" ho added,"tbat
the Government, even if they had tho
power, would certainly not repeal the
act. I, and my colleagues, havo uot
lost faith in tho measure. When the
act was passed we weie firmly convinced that the Eight-Hour law was
for the general bonefit of the Province
aud us yet nothing has occurred to alter our oonviction. I oonsider it highly
improbable that the aot will ever be
repealed. Precedents in Canada and
other countries show thnt labor laws
when once made remain. Tho present
differences between men and mnstors
in this district,wbioh by tbe way have
been greatly exaggerated in the press,
will soon light themselves. I would
gladly favor any conciliatory measures
towards that end."
Mr. Cotton mentioned inoidentially
that tho Government would continue
to pursue thoir policy of retrenchment
and reform. Ho hnd not yet hoard of
a dissolution or of the resignation of
Mr. Hume and imagined the reports
of tho smmi emanated from the fertile
brain of some newspaper reporter.
The Government were glad to get
rid of Mr. Martin. Thoy believed ho
was doing harm to both his party and
the Province and at the risk of weakening tbeir own cause hi' and his colleagues insisted on his retiring. Mr.
Martin threatened to wreck the present Government, but little fear was
felt of his throats.
Mr. Cotton is au Englishman, hailing from Doucaster in the County of
Yorkshire. He is an old tinier in British Columbia and is tbo proprietor of
the News-Advertiser, of Vauoonvor,
which paper he for some time also edited, lie leaves for Kaslo tbis afternoon. Mr. Cotton slated that his 1ms
iness in Nelson was merely official and
in no wise political.
He said nothing of his intention ol
informing the eoimri »s to 1 *■ tiutb
of Mr. Martin's charges against him
or why the Government was onnfinn-
ing to do business iu the old siand
notwithstanding the fact that tin
were iu tbe minority in the Huns-.
In fact, he stuck to the safe rule of giving no incriminating evidence.
REDUCTION IN RATES.
buildings  that are being ereoted and
it may be expected  that  a considerable reduction in the rates will shortly
be  announced.    These reductions will
save a large amount of money  to   Baker street   owners   in   the course of  a
yenr.   What brought about the  movement towards a general  reduction   in
rates was tho  action  of  two  Eastern
companies, which are not  members of
the British Columbia Board of Underwriters, djing business  iu Nelson  on
the basis of Eastern rutos.   This meant
that on Borne buildings these two com-
pauies  oould give much  better  rates
than the other companies  offered  und
many policies  were  withdrawn  from
the B. C. companies and given to  the
others.    This set the ball   rolling   and
no* Ihe rest  of the   compauies  will
come down.    The lnsnrauce men were
accountable    for     the      ringing     in
of   in alarm resterdav afternoon from
Hie Muuio Hotel  and   causing quite   a
commotion.    The cbief   nud  members
of the Eire    Brigade had no idea   tbat
the test was to be made but they  ably
'leiuonstiated   that they   were   always
ready for any everything     As   soou as
ihe alarm   sonuded, the  horses dashed
into place, the  doors   flew   open   and
the rush   to   the   Hume   commenced.
Within two minutes of the ringing   of
the  alarm   the   brigade   was ou  the
scene, ready to send streams of   water
on the hotel.    It was   a very satisfactory test and aB it will no doubt decide
the matter of a general reduction  rate
payers   will be recommended for   the
money they spent t his year in   bringing the department up   to its  present
state of  proficiency.   The    insurance
men think thnt the addition of a combination chemical aud hose cart wonld
muke the equipment of  the City   perfect.

THE MINING INSTITUTE.
Yesterday the members of the Canadian Mining Institute paid a visit to
the Silve: King mine. Tho start was
originally arranged for 8 a. m., bnt
most of the members were rather late
in getting up so it wns not, until tw<-
hours latei that they began ro "get a
move 011." Mr. II. E. Croasdailo the
manager, and Mr. S. S. Fowler accompanied the members. On arriving at
the mine they were met by Mr. M. S.
Davys, the superintendent, who conducted them over the mine. The visitors were extremely interested in all
they saw. An excellent lanch was
provided for them nnd they returned to
the City much pleased with this visit.
This morning the party will leave
for Kaslo returning again on Snturdny
when an entertainment will be arranged for them in the evening.
GOOD FIRE   PROTECTION.
Iusuranoe Mon Are Impressed Witli the
Safeguards From Fire.
One beneficial result of the large
number of briok blocks beiug erected
in Nelson this summer will be a general reduction in the rutes of insurance on buildings in tho business
section. The erection of a brick block
to replaco a frame one makes a break
that assures a greater safety to the
buildings on either side of it and as
sevoral of these breaks have recently
been made the owners of adjoining
buildings have been agitating for a
reduction in the insurance rates. The
result has been that insurance men
galore have visite! Nelson of late; they
represented boards of underwriters
and insurance companies, and all their
risks iu the City have been examined.
Tho local men have been kept busy
with the representatives of the companies. The fire system of the City has
been thoroughly inspected and every
other safeguard noted. Tho inanrnaoe
people have deoided that Nelson is in
no immediate danger of being wiped
ont by a general conflagration and will
bo report to their companies. Those
in the City now are obtaining planB
of the business blocks showing the new
The Brigade Horses Becoming   Accustomed to Their Now Duties.
The fire brigade horses have been
diligently trained by Chief Thnrarson
mil Mr. Pheifer and when tho alarm
Bounds they dash out from their stalls
in the rear of the hall and take their
positions under tho suspended haruesa
in a verv short time. The regular har-
'ii -s tins ti"t yel arrived, but an ordinary -el 10 now being used for the
purpose ot training the team, Citizens
interested in fire protection would do
well to visit the hall any day at noon
or six p. in. to aeo what progress is
heing made along that line in Nelpon.
The various insurance represtenta-
tives who aro now wrestling with a reduction in rates m Nelson, have already taken cognizance of it. The
tire hall is the picture of neatness and
when n fire alarm system is inaugurated Nelson will have better fire protection than any oity of its size in Canada. The up-town station ou Latimer
street is now well equipped.
NEI.S0N-BEDL1NGT0N RAILWAY.
Mr. ,1 MacMartiu returned to Nel
son yesterday from tho camp on the
Nelson Bedlingfon Railway. He has
now completed his contract and tra*_k
laying will at once commence.
This should occupy about six weeks
provided a sufficient nnmher of ln-
uorers can be obtained. Owing to the
great amount of railway construction
now going on lahoiers are difficult to
obtain. Mr. MacMartiu says that
there are plenty of vacancies now for
those who want work on the Nelson-
Bedlington line. Tho wages are at the
rate of $2.25 a day, tho charge for
board being $4.50 per week. There is
very little excuse for able bodied men
to hang about our streets and say they
cannot get work when within a day's
journey they can obtain a fair wage
and regular employment.
St. Petersburg, Sept. 14.—A dispatch
from Hnraiuerfeat, the northermost
town of Norway, announces the arrvi-
val there of the British Commercial
Expedition which vainly attempted to
explore the months of the River Obi
and other Siberian streams. Tho expedition was turned back by ice, after
losing its ship, the Arthur, which wus
crushed by the floes. Fortunately
tbere was no loss of life.
Washington. sept. 14.—Mail advices received at the War Department
from Manila state the natives of the
Islands of Zamar are praying for the
speedy arrival of the Americans and
will weloome the hoisting of the
American flag. It is said tbat as a
result of the forcible collection of taxes
hythe emissaries of the insurgents who
take all they have got, the nath es
are in a state of semi-starvation. They
bave uo faith in the Tagalos and ear-
neatly wish American proteotion. In
surgent leader General Lncbansta has
bolted to Japan, taking with bim $2,-
(100 collected by him for the insurgents.
The agents of the insurgonts endeavored to force the natives to join their
forces wbioh they will not do. Tbe
condition in the Island it is asserted,
is rapidly approaching riot and anarchy, us the henvy and continued drag
on them in the form of tribute exasperates them terribly, and they, the
letter says, threaten desperate resistance if it oontinues
ROBBER'S AT   KOSSLAND.
A Desperate Encounter With a Masked
Burglar.
Rossland, Sept. 14 —A masked
rubber, made a MUccet^ful visit at 4. .15
this morning to the Clarendon saloon
At that hour he appeared in the room
of J. Lucas, who is the steward of
the Clarendon hotel, and who rooms
lu the building. The noise of some
one entering the apartment awakened
Mr. Lucas. He was surprised to Bee
a man standing near the door, aud
tbe first thing that the early morning visitor did was to reach for a coat
and vest which were lying on a chair.
Then he saw a pair of trousers and
reaohed for them. As he did so he
poked a revolver in Lucas' face. The
latter got hold of the suspenders attaoh
ed to the trouBerB at the same time the
robber did. They struggled for possession of the garment, but Mr. Lucas
clung to the suspenders and was pulled
out of bed by the burglar, who seemed
to bo very strong. Several times tho
pistol held by the burglar waa snapped
in Lucas' face. The sound of the struggle was heard by those who were in
the barroom down stairs Lucas was
entaugled in the bedclothes and cculd
not get on his feet. The waistband
finally parted from ibe trousers and
w.is left with the suspenders in tho
hands of Mr. Lucas. The robber with
the trousers in oue bund and the pistol iu the other, fled to the rear of the
bnilding aud jumped from the porch
to a shed roof and from thence leaped
into »n alley. He ran rapidly east
along tbo alley iu the rear of tho Clarendon and then north through auother
alley in this block, aud out on to First
Avenue. Thence he euoaped in the
darkness. He was seen by a messenger
boy and others as he passed through
the alloy carrying the trousers with
him. In the pockets of the trousers
there was between $(10 and $70 and
some receipts. No traoe of the daring robber has been found.
No  Eeply   Is  Yet  Given—An   Uneasy.
Doubtful feeling Prevails in
the Transvaal.
London, Sept. 14.—The Capetown
correspondent of The Daily Nows says
a tb.msund mon are cugaged in
strengthening tho defences of Pretoriu,
trenches are being excavated, aud
earthworks converted. It is reported
that both Raads will adjourn at the
end of tho week to enable members to
cousult their constituents on the question raised iu Mr. Chamberlain's despatch. "
Pretoria, Sept. 14.—The discussion
of the first draft of the reply to the
Biitish not ended this evening, President Kruger having left at 4 o'clock
and not having returned, It is under-
Itood that the Government will draw
up the reply in its final form tomorrow and immediately submit to the
Volksraad The reply will be in terms
strongly influenced by the Orange
Free Stiite and among other features,
the maintaince of the convention of
1881 will be strongly asserted. The situation this evening is not considered
as favorable as was during the forenoon.
SECRETARY   APPOINTED.
London, Sept. 1.—Mr. G. Lowther,
British consul at Duba Pest bas been
appointed seoretary ot the Biitish Embassy at Washington.
DREYFUS FOUND GUILTY.
Rennes, Sept. 9.—Dreyfus was sen-
tonoed to tenj yeais imprisonment.
The court stood five to two for the
condemnation of the prisoner, but
found extenuating circumstances. The
crowd outside greeted the verdict with
cheers for the army. As the people
emerged from the oourt room the gendarmes kept them moving uway, a
small crowd of people outside oheered
for the army, but; the gendarmes did
not interfere and there was not the
slightest disorder.
The judgment was read to Dreyfus
in an adjoining room by the clerk of
the conrt. Dreyfus listened impassively
and did not show the slightest sign
of emotion, did not utter a word, bnt
marched back to jrieon like an automation. It is uuderetood Dreyfus will
be sent to Fort Oorte, an Island of
Conies*
London, Sept. 14.—While the staff
of the Foreign Oflloe still maintains
continuous comunmioation tonight
with Mr. Chamberlain at Birmingham, it is not believed now that the
result of the debate in the Volksraad
will b3 received before Friday. Dispatches from Capetown dated midnight attach great importance to an
article in the Onsland, the organ of
the Afrikander Bund which urges the
Transvaal Government to renew its
offer regarding a conference, declaring
that there is no reason why the Transvaal should not accept a conference
and calling attention to the fa-it that
the wurd "suzerainty" ia not mentioned by Mr. Chamberlain.and that therefore, thero is nothing to indicate an
obligation on part of tho Government
to abandon its view ou the subjeot.
This article is understood to be the
outcome of important Afrikander caucus held to discuss the Chamberlain
matter, aud not, it is understood that
the argument bas been fortified by
strong messagges to Pretoria urging
tho Volksraad to forego the suzerainty
objection and to concede tho British
proposals. There is every reason to
believe Mr. Hoffmerey the Afrikander
leader has wired Kruger to the same
effect and similar representations
have been telegraphed from the Orange
Free State.
Loudon, Sept. 14.—The Pretoria
correspondent of tho Daily Chronicle
says that when Mr. Conyngham
Greene, tho British diplomatic agent,
suggested 48 hours within whicn the
African representatives reply was expeoted, the Transvaal representative
replied; "If your suggestion is serious
the reply will be ready iu 48 minntes. "
Presideut Krger's Intimations, according to tho Daily Chronicle are pessimistic regarding the situation. The
Pretoria correspondent of Tho Times
says; 'It is very doubtful whether an
unqualified acceptance of Great Brit-
aius demands will be giveu."
The Paris correspondent of The
Times says tbat M. Delcasse the French
B'orelgn Minister has directed the
French Consul in tne Transvaal to ,en-
dcavor to persuade President Kruger
to accept Mr. Chamberlain's proposal.
The Pretoria correspondent of tbe
Daily Telegraph says:
"The members of the Volksraad received Mr. Chamberlain's despatch defiantly today (Thursday)
individual members declaring (heat
Britain must moderate her demands,
On tho other hand a rumor iB current that Kruger tavors compliance
and has even suggested that ho desires
the irrocoucihibles to leave Pretoria
and consult their constituents thereby
avoiding their opposition. This belief
is held in Johannesburg and accounts
for the hopeful condition of the market
but the general publio is pessimistic,
The Times publishes the following
dispatch from Johannesburg: "The
mystery surrounding the atittudu of
the Orange Free State continues.
President Stein's silence is interpreted
as showing an intention to support the
TraiiBvaal through thick and thin
though his influeuce at present is on
the side of peace. Public fooling iB
running very high, and unless Kruger
makes an emphatic pronouncement iu
favor of conciliation, the great, majority of the Boors will iuevitably vote
against any concessions beyond a seven
years franchise.

from Oregon several weeks ago.
Hayues was exposed, took the disease
and died iu nine days. Two threshing gangs of about 25 men each ate
quarantined.
The news of smallpox being ovei
theie has caused more or less excitement iu Moscow and toduy is the sole
topic of conversation. The city is
entirely free from infection and there
is DO reason for alarm. Ample prepar-
tious against an epidemic will be taken. The oity council had n meeting
last uight. The council had knowledge that there were no cases in the
city, but will tako means for prompt
measures if by chance auy shonld appear. A pest house in the northeast
part of the city has been arranged for.
The city doctors will be instructed io
report auy case as soon as found to the
Health Officer, who is also the county
physcian.
Quarantine measures will at once be
taken or the patient removed to the
nest house. The city officers do not
fear that the smallpox will appear in
Moscow, but will be ready for it if
such a calamity should come.

How Long Will the Catholics Enjoy
Tranquility?
Loudon, Sept. 14 —The Times
prints this morning a four column article from itB Rome correspondent on
the Pope and Americanism whioh
says: "The recent conflict was of in-
tens*- interest for Englishmen, becuuse
behind tho name of Hecker, and all it
implies, lies the wider and weightier
question in Roman Catholicism with its
infallible authority and iron frame
work of dogma. After giving the story
of Father Heoker, his movements, and
of tho recent conflict, the correspondent concludes as follows: "So long
as the American Catholics formulate
no doctrine, claim no liberty, and
avoid all action which might give a
handle to their foes, they may hope to
live in peace. Yet the question arises
how long will respeot for tbeir past,
their independence in spirit and eapeo
ially, the constant influeuce of the
American environment permit them
to hold their tranquility ou sufferance
or to enjoy their freedom by stealth.
The duel between the Anglo-Saxon
temperinent and the Jesuit discipline
will be worth watching, for the stake
of civilization iu its outcome is by uo
means small "
COURTEOUSLY DECLINED.
The   Philipines   Reply   to   Autonomy
Proposal.
Manila, Sept. 14.—The Associated
Press correspondent here has obtained
a copy of the reply made by the Filipino Congress to the American offer of
autonomous government. The author
of tbe reply was Ambrosio Riazaros,
who was offered a position in the su-
pm-eme court, but who failed to appear and was supposed to bo detained
by the insurrectionists.
Tho document repeated Ihe nrgu
merits contained in the recent appeal
to the powers for recognition and the
Filipino claims tbat tbe Americans
were the aggressors iu tbe war and
oonoludesi
"'Notwithstanding the foregoing,
we could havo accepted your sovereignity and autonomy if we had not seen
by the behavior of the Americans in
tho beginning that tbey were strongly
opposed to us through race prejudice
and high handed methods of dealng
with us made us fear for a future in
your hands. Filially wo thank you
foi your offer of autonomy under sovereignty. "
New York,   Sept.   14.—Today's ses-
-iiin of the Mazet Legislative   Investigation Committee   was certainly   the
■tormiest aud  perhaps  the most interesting yet neld.    No previous  day bus
witnessed the appearance  on the stand
of such an  array of   prominent   men.
Muyor Van Wyck, Richard Croker, Edward Lauterbach, of  the  Borough   of
Manhattan and Hugh  McLaughlin of
the   Borougn  of    Brooklyn,   ex-State
Senator  Rice   ol   Roudout,   President
S. I. Butcher,  of the Rampo    Water
Co., Edward M.   Grout,   preBident   of
the Borough of   Brooklyn, and a nnmher of other officials  of   Greater New
York, were  in attendance and participated in the  proceedings.    The Rampo Water Co., the corporation  anxious
to obtain the 4,200,000 contract witb
the City of New York waB tha  subject
under investigation.   Mayor Van Wyck
while on the stand intimated that Mr.
Moss Beemed  to   think   that Silas  B.
Dut?her, Levi   P.   Morton   and  Gen.
Tracy ware a   patch  of thieves.    This
was the first time   Governor  Morton's
name  had   been  conntcted  with   the
Rampo Co., and Mr. Moss pressed Mr.
Van Wyck for the purpose of ascertaining    what    the    chief   executive  of
New York city   knew about the Btook
holdings in the  corporation   possessed
by the former Chief   Exeoutive of  tbe
state.  He was unable to obtain definite
and  acouiate   informaitou.    Iu    fact
when    closely    interrogated   ty  Mr.
Goss,   the  mayor returned  "none of
your business."   While  Richard Croker under Bimilar   pleasure  replied!
"That is my private affair." Take
it all in all, little important information oould be obtained concerning the
oompany. One of the niOBt Bignificaut
statements was that made by Edward
Lautvr who responding to interrogations, informed the cpmmittee that he
bad endeavored to obtain tbe consent
of the stockholders to tho publication
of their names, and that hy Monday
next, he hoped to have the necessary
consent. He was given until Tuesday
tj produce the names.
Washington, Sept. 14.—The Tartar
incident is regarded here as olosed.
It is learned at the State Department
that the representations made to Mr.
Choate at London ou this subjeot wero
in the nature of a protest. The authorities hero had convinced themselves that they had no right to olaim
exemption for the Tartar from the
Deration of Birtisb law in a British
l>ort, because the nationality of the
ship had not been changed to American by the mere fact that she had beeu
chartered for a cortain specific duty
by United States officers.
The basis of application to the British Government was the fact that the
ship had been alterod in bor interior
arrangements since the original inspection on ths issuo of permit to carry
passengers with tho result that it is
uow fully in accordance with the requirements of the British law even for
the 1,200 oidered troops on bourd. It
is said at the State Department, the
Houg Kong authorities must have taken this view and have acted voluntarily in releasing the ship for there was
not time before to havo heard fmin
Loudon.
SCORED A SUCCESS.
Moutroal.Qne., Sept. 14.—Grace Van
Studdiford, better known in theatrical
circles as Grace Quire, who, some
three yours ago left the Bofltouinus owing to a disagreement with Jesse Bart-
lett Davis, made her reappearance :n
light opera with Jeff de Angolis and
"The Jolly Musketeer," replacing
Hilda Clarke. Her success was almost Instantaneous and it Is tne more
creditable inasmuch as Miss Clarke
was a great favorite in Montreal. Miss
Van Ktuddiford's voice is remarkably
strong, and flexible. It iB scarcely
too much to predict for her a most
brilliant stage earlier.
SMALLPOX IN IDAHO.
Mobcow,   Idaho,    Sept.     14.—Webb
HayncB, living 10 miles   southwest  of
town,   died of    smallpox    yesterday
morning,   Mr. Hayues' brother had it
FRENCH BUDGET.
Paris, Sept. 14.—The French Budget for 1900 snows an increase in estimated expenditure of 4,500,000
francs. The War and Marino MiniBter-
ies ask for B,600,000 for the supplementary force in Algiers and in the
building of new warships. The National debt amounts to 80,000,000
franca,
NEW CABINET FORMED,
New York, Sept. 14.—A dispatch to
The Herald from Caracas says: A

ister of Instruction.

of Minneapolis, who recently returned
from a tour to Euglaud and Ireland
where he won several battles met
Matty Matthwa of New York, at the
Coney Island Club and waa disqualified in the final round of a 25-round
bout for fouling.

comes the final question—Can the people of British Columbia realise what a
dire calamity would befall the Province, with its Government under the
influence of two such demagogues as
Mr. Mclnuos and Mr, Martin?
THE   COLUMBIAN'S JOKE.
QEUSTIONS   WORTH   CONSIDERING.
By his speech at Nanaimo on   Labor
Day the young Mr. Molnnes has created quite a stir.   He  is   scolded on   all
sides tor his tirade against capital.    It
was senseless, certainly,   but the   geu-
tlemau   conceived himself   under  the
necessity of creating   a   sensation and
arousing   enthusiasm,   and    how    do
these   more successfully   tlniu by holding up capital as the pitiless tyrant of
the labor   class?   The   portion   of  his
speech devoted   to   this   subject   may
prove paiuful and   even   alarming to a
great many sober, decent  citizens who
believe in peace   and   prosperity;   but
it suited the  audience,   und  we most
not be   too   hard   ou Mr. Mcliiues for
playing  the agitator   wheu  he knew
bow welcome it would be.    No  doubt
he   overstepped   the   mark    when   he
counselled   physical   violence  as    the
readiest   and   most    effectual   remonstrance against the broken   promise of
tho Dominion  Premier to be governed
hy the British   Columbia  members in
dealing with tho   question of  Chinese
immigration.    Mr. Molnnes is a much
more unobservant man-than ho ia supposed to be if  he bas  pissed font session at Ottawa without knowing  that
tho floor of Parliament is strewn with
brokeu promises and violated   pledges.
Why work himself up into   a   state of
very superior indignation over tins single one?  Was it because it wus the one
which offered the  finest   opportunities
for playing upon   the   feelings   of  his
audience V
Then, again, there wero surpiisland sensation iu tho announcement
that ho would resign bis seat iu Parliament, us a protest against the inaction of the Government in declining
to shut the gate against the Chinese.
But he did not say that he would himself appeal to h'' constituents on that
issue. Ho merely intimated, his intention to resign. Perhaps he supposed
that his candidature would bo taken
for grauted, and that it was not necessary to declare iu so many words that
he would again offer himself. We venture to protest, but ever so mildly, that
nobody is Pound to suppose anything
of tho sort. It might even be doubted
if he intends to resign, for we believe
it is on record tbat tho gentleman has
on former occasions threatened a like
catastrophe, without, however, proving himself equal to the sacrifice.
But we take him at his word, and believe that this time he intends to'" get
out. He goes no farther, and we are
free to conclude that ho intends to remain   oat.
Un    his    own    statement,    therefore,   the  way   is  being   made  dear
for hia entrance into Provincial  politics.    That is the point we want to get
at.   He made what might not unfairly
be described as an   incendiary speech,
accompanying   it   with   the    intimation that he inteuded to rosign his seat
in the Parliament at Ottawa.   As  he
said nothing to discourage the  conclusion, we aro  ut liberty to assume that
his further intention is to get into the
Legislature at Victoria.   This  agrees!
with certain    rumors   that   have  re-
oeutly found circulation.    Now,   it  is
often possible in putting two and   two
together to make a miscalculation.    It
is possible in this instance,  but u<> apprehension of tho kind   can be allowed
to arrest the process.  Thero is a strong
belief   thnt a year ago His Honor  the
Lieutenant-Governor would have been
pleased if Mr. Martin had stopped into
the flhoes now worn   by   Mr.   Semlin,
whioh goes to provo that His Honor is
athor partial to Mr. Martin. His Honor's resigning   aon   and   Mr.   Martin
were both on  the  Nanaimo  platform,
and both ranting at 11 frightful rata to
create a labor  feeling  and capture the
labor vote.    It has been freely suggested of late that His Honor is playing to
throw tha political  ganiu to  his  son.
Mr. Martin ha<t 110 doubt that tho first
meeting of the Legislature will dispose
of the Semlin   Government,   and that
its defeat  will be followed by a dissolution   and general   election.    Is  the
resignation of Mr.   Molnnes   the first
step towards establiahiug him and Mr.
Martin as the leaders   of   the Government that is to succeed Mr.   Semlin's?
Mr. Molnnes is not  giving   up a   Dominion seat  to serve as   a   private  at
Victoria.    His father   is   supposed   to
be looking for a person to supplant Mr.
Semlin as Premier! is tbe son the man
he    is   waiting  for?   The   Nanaimo
peeches   suggest   that  he   is.    Then
ance of his Miuisterial duties there is martial conso'ired to bring in a verdict
no occasion for tbe tronble ho is obliged j of guilty, in order thnt the nation
to take,   or for  the  inconvenience  to  might  escape the risk of a revolution.
Our excellent contemporary, The
New Wetstminster Columbian, has an
excellent joke ou The Miner aud ou The
Viotoria Globe ; on The Miner in that
it deceived itself over the statement
of a very obvious fact, and on The
Globe in that it allowed itself to be
deceived by tho deceit. When it stated, or, which is quite the same thing.
when it quoted to endorse the statement of nuiithi'i', that tho Government
was in no danger, it merely meant,
what every one knew, that the Government had a majority and was con
sequently Bale. The Miner built np on
this very innocent foundation a
"huge fake sensation," and saw in it
same "mysterious ulterior reason,"
to wit, that the Lieutenant-Governor
was standing between tha Government
and harm. What nonsense this is,
thinks our contemporary. The assumption that the Government is in a minority "is, of course, direotly contrary
to the facts; which, being remember.
ed, makes still more ridiculous their
flamboyant, mare's nest about the Lieutenant-Governor. "
It is pleasant to see The Columbian
enjoy its laugh 60 much ; but we pray
that it \?ill be good enough to hold
its sides for a moment until we can
see whether the matter is as funny ns
itpree-ds. We invited our contemporary to put itself right if we were
mistaken in tbe inference drawn from
its remark, that the Government was
uot iu danger because his Honor was
protecting it. Tbe ouly explanation it
makes is that the Government is not
in danger for the reason that it is
not iu a minority. Tha Miispr had assumed Hint it was aud is. If the assumption is wrong, the inference falls,
of course; it right, onr contemporary
has made no explanation, aud its hilarity comes under the suspicion of heing feigned.
At the close of the session the nr
ties stood—Ministerialists, 20; Opposition, 18, We havo not heard that -any
of the latter have, deserted. Of tht
Ministerialists, Mr. Martin says be in
against the Government and Mr. Biggins says be is against tho Govern
ment Here are two certain defections.
Mr. Helgensen says be will oppose tin
Government if certain legislation it
not repea'ed; Mr. Maopberson say*
he will oppose if that legislation ii
not retained. In the f co of such opposite positions, the Government i
bound to lose one of these Without
looking farther, we get the result that
nineteen are for the Government and
mineteen will vote to defeat it
With the Speaker in tin* chair, the
Government is thus left in a minority
of one. Giving it tha Speaker's vide
tbere would be a tie, and we have
never heard that in any British dominion, under British responsible government, the-affairs of a country wen
carried on witb parties equally divided. Perhaps The Columbian has, and
it may have the goodness to enlightei
us. It might be added that other Ministerialists are understood to be disaffected, but it is not necessary to tht
present purpose to inquire further.
The Government is not in a position
to control the Legislature, and that, is
enouRh.
The Columbian knows tins, nnd His
Honor the Lieutenant-Governor knows
it. When, therefor**, it says that
the Government is not in danger it
mnst hnve some "mysterious ulterior
reason" for thinking so. What can it
bo if it is not its confidence in the expectation that tho Lieutenant-Governor
will protect it—that there is on understanding that tho Government is
not to be disturbed? Who else can insure its safety until tin* Hooso meets,
and who else can compel the Government to hasten or delay the meeting?
These tire times of fresh and startling developments. Since Tho Columbian gave its aigh of relief over the
safety of the Government, young Mr.
Molnnes and Mr. Martin have met on
a Labor platform and indulged in
what The Victoria Times very properly condemns as inflammatory
speech. Evidently they are looking lo
tho organisation of a party Hint is to
ho subject to their own leadership
The Columbian may have been consoled with the thought thut the present
Opposition would not be allowed to
endanger the life of the Government:
what does it think of the suggestion of
the Nanaimo demonstration, that its
life is being prolonged in order that
Mr. Molnnes and Mr, Martin may
have full opportunity to prepare to
take charge of its successor?
which he is obliged to submit,in mak
ing the journey from Victoria to Nelson
The simple explanation is that he is
making a tour of Southern British Colnmbia with tbe object of feeling the
public pulse,au.i because of its importance as a political centre Nelson is necessarily included in his itinerary.
He will pretend that he is here ou Departmental business; but it is well
known that Ministers nre given to romancing, and it may be accepted ns
the actual truth of the matter that his
mission in a political one.
He has just got rid of Mr. Martin ; that
is, he has  maneuvred   to  get that individual out of tho  Government,   but
wbetber be has got  rid  of him is another question.    It is the question that
just now is most troubling Mr. Cotton,
atal be is  beating   np   and  down   the
country to  ascertain men's minds and
gather   the   information   on   which to
hase an estimate of the probability   of
Mr Martin's   resurrection.    This   is a
matter of  tho   utmest   interest to Mr.
Cotton,   for   if   Mr.    Martin   bobs  np
again it will   mean   tbnt Mr.   Cotton
will bave to take a header down below.
Never more   can   the   two men   reign
side by side ; their political kingdom is
not big enough for   both.    Much   will
dopend on Kooteuay, and Mr. Cotton is
here to feel  its  pulse.        If  bo   shall
take the trouble to go outside the rntli-
ir restricted   circle   of Ministerialists,
he will discover an enormous indifference to the result   of   the conflict   between himself and Mr. Martin.    Thero
is a matter, however, personal to himself, iu which every citizen of   Nelsou
who reg lids good   character and reputation as essential to publio life   takes
a deep interest.    Mr. Cotton   ia accused of having falsified tho records of the
Executive Council.     A graver  charge
was never made against the   honor   of
a Canadian Minister,    io far Mr. Cot-
toan bas ignored it.  He may think that
he is the best judge   as   to the expediency of a policy of   silence,   and   perhaps he is; but there aro scores of honorable men  here  in   Nelsou who  feel
that silence under an unjust accusation
of   that    nature   ia     impossible.    We
should all like Mr. Cotton to denounce
it as untrue, for it is   not pleasant   to
have to think that a British Columbia
Minister of the Crown is   lying  under
so serious a charge,    We therefore  extend to him an invitation   to  explain,
and thus relieve   a   great  deal ol *er.
painful   anxiety.    Until Ik*  does   this
we can assure   him   that   outside   the
ring of professional politicians wbo t.*-
vor his party or his Government there
will bo very   few   who  will   oare  the
ty.ss of a copper   whether   he  or   Mr.
Martin shall win in the race  of agitators and demogogues.
This danger over, the next step in the
conspiracy will be takcu, and Dreyfus
will either be pardoned or his sentence
BO moderated that it will lose the appearance of punishment, The ugly feature
that will always remain is tbe fact that
the French people were incapable of
protesting against an unjust judgment;
but this will he forgotten in tha virtual rehabilitation of the persecuted
officer, aud the irritation wili pass
with the memory of it. Paris will
have its millions next year, and it is
dosirable that they shall have an op
portanily to see the ores of   Kootenay.
When the Liberals were ont ami

In Tho Vancouver World editorial
mention is madejjof a rumor that Mr.

with the! Liberal party, and is desirous
of taking a baud, or foot, in the Provincial scrimmage. The World adds

addressed a large meeting in Syracuse,
in the course of which ho took occasion
to tell his audience thnt he would rather

of tho State of New York ; he would
rather be Premier of Canada than
President of the United States.
Tho Associated Boards of Trade, tin

Hour law, which was productive of infinite barm to the mining industry ol
tbe Province. Now we have the Canadian Mining Institute, which is specially interested 111 the industry am

similar resolution of disapproval and
remonstrance. It would lie hard tc
find two bodies that could declare themselves with greater authority on a
question of thai kind.
DREYFUS AND THE EXPOSITION.
THE VISITING  MINISTER.
Mr. Cotton is visiting Nelson. We
may be sure be is not here to see that
the foundation walls of the registry
office are built in true, workmanlike
manner. Such little duties of inspection are left to subordinates. There is
nothing else in the nature of a public
work that would call Mr. Cotton to
Nelson, nor are there any land transactions or complications that render bis
presence  necessary.    In   the  perform-
Some newspapers ill England are
strongly recommending that Great
Britain, in view of the Dreyfus verdict, should boycott tbo Paris Exposition. Long dispatches from Washington tell of the feeling among the politicians there, who uro so outraged by
tho conviction of the unhappy officer
that they would be glad if Congress
would revoke tho unexpended portion
of tho appropriation. Newspapers in
Canada say that this country should
mark its displeasurs by keeping away
from Paris next year, aud the able but
somewhat bumptious Attorney-General
of Nova Scotia denounces tbe verdict
in a public letter and expresses the
hope that Great. Britain, the United
States, and Canada will refuse to patronise the Exposition,
The feeling that prompts the suggestion of a bocyott is admirable, and
every right minded person will share
it. But the suggestion itself is absurd
The Governments cannot do what is
asked of them. If the British Government were to stop short in tho prepar-
ions that aro being made and were
to intimate to France that the British
nation, highly displeased because of
the Rennes outrage, would refuse to recognise the Exposition, tbe French people would be deeply offended and would
regard such action as little short of a
declaration of war. Tho British Govern;, lent hus nothing to do with the
administration of justice in France,
whether civil or military. That is a
purely domestic affair, with which in-
jferenco is quite out of the question,
Neither has the Government of the
United States or of Canada.
What the Governments cannot do,
however, the people may. Mr. Long-
ley oan express his extreme dissatisfaction with tho Rennes verdict by giving Paris the widest possible berth
next year. Aud so can Canadians
generally, or Americans. If they are
boiling over with indignation, as is
vory probable aud in the highest de-
gron creditable to thoir humanity, let
them stay away. The Governments
have made their appropriations and
engaged space, and cannot now retire
without giving offence; but exhibitors
are not obliged to exhibit, nor are the
general publio under any obligation to
visit Paris. Tho Exposition is several
months off yet, however, and before
it is opened the presout ijritntionmay
subside. The Dreyfus affair has been
a conspiracy from the beginning, and
if. looks as it tbo Rennes trial was
merely a prolongation of it. The
French Government  and   the  Court-
"These owners arc so greedy," said

One paper having said that a million
dollars hud been lost through the closing down nf the Slocan mines, another
says, not so; the ore is still in the
mines and therefore cannot be lost. In
this rouly we get a glimpse of statesmanship and knowledge of economies
that is positively blinding iu its brilliancy. Why all this bother and excitement over mines and mining und
eight-hour days andj companies and
syndicates and capital? It is all a
waste of temper and energy. We are
rich without it. The ore is in the
minos; what more cun we want? To
dig it out nnd smelt it makes it no
mote valuable, nor adds to the wealth
of the country. Close up the hole and
come away; as long as the ore is there
you ore licit, if you but have imagination enough to realise it.
LOCAL  AiND PERSOiNAL
Mr. Cotton's paper is not pleased
with the methods of the Opposition
papers of the Coast It accuses them
of making personal attacks on public
men,which it thinks is very bad form,
indeed, and much tu bo deprecated.
It has doubtless most prominently in
its mind's eye the "attack"'on Mr.
Cotton himself, which consists of a
fair ami moderate restatement of a
charge made by Mr. Joseph Martin
while Attorney-General, submitted
iu writing to the Premier, to tbe effect
that Mr. Cotton bad tampered with
the minutes of tho Exeoutive Council
and given them a meaning they were
not intended to have. Perhaps it is
natural Mr. '.lotion's paper should see
something wrong m this, bnt no other
paper or person very well can. And
instead of complaining about it, Mr.
Cotton's paper would be much better
employed in persuading Mr. Cotton to
explain tho charge away—provided,
that IB, such an extremely convenient disposition of it can be made.
It is pleasant to road of the cordial
reception given to tho Governor-General's Foot Guards by the citizens of

some years ago by Sir Oliver Mownt,

friendly member desired to invite Sir
Oliver to a seat on the floor of the
House. Bnt tho suggestion was met

Alderman Thomas O'Brien, recently
of Calgary, bnt now practicing lnw in
Golden arrived here yesterday on legal
business. The Alderman speaks highly
of the mining resources in the vicinity
of Golden and predicts a boom for
that section of the country at an early

was agreeably surprised to find evidence nf the prosperity and push of its
citizens and remarked tbat the Oity

THE EIGHT-HOUR LAW CONDEMNED
Papers Read Ey Messrs. Fowler, Howard West and Hard-
man—What the Institute Does For the
Mines of the Province.
The members of the Canadian Mining Institute spent a quiet day yesterday. In tbe morning tbey made a trip
to the Hall Mines smelter where they
weie shown around by tbe officials
there. All the workings of the big
institution weie shown to them and
all expressed themselves as very pleased with what they saw. Alter luncheon a trip to the Athabasca mine was
ou the programme but the transportation facilities of the City proved very
inadequate to tako tho visitors np the
hill. However one vehicle was procured and a small party was driven up
to tho mill which was running fnll
blast. Tho workings of the machinery
were explained to the visitors who
were not already familiar with such
nn industry. It wns on th" cards for
some of the mining men to visit the
mine via tbe tramway but this part of
the programme was not carried out.
It, is unfortunate that there are not facilities supplied by the local liverymen
for visits to the neighboring mines as
Nelson people generally would have
liked to have had tho members cf the
Institute; visit such a representative
mine aa the Athabasca.
Tho largo majority of the visitors
could not go into the hills so d not.
Most of tbem, however, were taken
charge of by Nelson friends and tbo
water proved to ho the Mecca. (Cnpt.
Troup entertained n party in his handsome steam yacht and a very pleasant
time was spent along the water front
the obaiming weather adding greatly
to the enjoyment. Mr. J. Keith Reid
took charge of another party in his
yacht Myth while a third party went
fishing. Among the latter party were
gentlemen whose veracity lias heretofore been above reproach, but when
tbey said they caught seven fish and
left them at the boat house the other
members of the Institute made unkind I
remarks, which indicated Hint fboy j
wore not quite persuaded that lliey had
ever been seven fish iu the Lake. Another party will be organized to go
fishing licfuic the gentlemen leave tho
City so there is yet an opportunity
for them to redeem theiir lost characters. In the ■ vening all tin nieuibi rs
attended th" meeting o( tht Institute
held in the Fraternal Hall,
This morning the   inembors  of  the
Institute will become tho guests of the j
Hull Mines, and will pack into wagons,
and visit the Silver King mine, where;
luncheon will ho served and an iuspeo-'.
Mion made of   Nelson's   premier mine. ;
That is as   far as the   programme   extends and   the members will be enter-,
tniued by friends on their return. They
leave tomorrow morning for the Slocan
oountry, aud will  return to Nelson on
Saturday morning, remaining here until Sunday night   when they leave   for
homo via. Hie Crow's Nest line.
The meeting held by the Mining Institute in the Friendly Societies Hall
was to some extent a revelation to tbe j
large audience who attended of the excellent work the Institnte is doing m
Canada. The Society which has a
membership of over 800, consisting of
the leading representative men iu Can-
da who are interested more or less in
mining, exercises a wide influence over
its extensive sphere of work equally
in all the  Provinces of the Dominion.
The discnssious that followed the
leadings of tho papers last night, the
various speeches that wero made bv
the members, and the thoroughly capable and masterly manner in which
facts, vital facts as regards mining interests, were dealt with by the members in general, considerably impressed
the large audience. So long as mon of
such Intelligence nnd culture as our
visitors possess can be found to travel
some 11,000 miles iu order to diligently
investigate the mineral wealth cf
thisFrovtnoe,and at the same lime listen with interest to those here who
are iu a position to speak on mining
matters as expeits, there can be every
hope that the welfare of British Columbia and her unlimited and rich
mineral resources will be duly recognized by the most enlightened men iu
Canada.
There wore over HO present at the
meeting last night, the audience consisting of the members of the Institute
now visiting Nelson and the leading
mining men in this district. The
chairman made a short opening speech
and thanked those of the citizens who
were ptesent for their attendance.
Tho minutes of the last, meeting
were read and passed and thou an election of members took place, a number
of those who were enrolled being
prominent local men. The Secretary,
Mr. Bell, briefly explained the objeots
of the Institute and mentioned that the
Dominion Governnient had made arrangements for the cutty of dredging
appliances into the Dominion free of
duty.
Mr. Fowler, the consulting engineer
for the Loudon nnd B. O. Gold Fields,
was then requested by the president to
read his paper on tho Ymir mine.
Mr. Fowler began by describing the;
positio t of ilm Ymir mine. The area
of the Salmon river country covered
about !ll)0 square miles in the midst of |
a rough ieotatigular mountainous district of about 1.4P0 squflie miles. This
distriut was, until 18U6, when opened
ont by the Nelson & Fort Bheppard
Railway, almost inaccessible. Some
'.if) years ago then- were some placer
mines worked at tne mouth of the Salmon river, In 1886, two years before
the discovery of the Silver King mine,
the Halls located some claims on the
head of Wild Hoise Creek. In lSMi.with
the advent of the railway, a number
ut locations were made. At tho present day thero are many valnublo mines
in tho district as for example, tho
Fern, Porto Rico, Yellowstone, Second
Relief   and   Arlington.
The rock of that district is not
physically complicated in structure.
Glaciers havo been Important factors
iu its typography. The rock is of
igneous origin with a mixture of sedimentary formations such as slate. In
somo parts aro found quarUiteB and
crystalline limestones. The Ymir
mine is situated on the west side of
the valley of a north fork of Wild
Horse creek. It was taken over by
the present owners in ISOti and since
that date some 5,000 feet of development work haa been done showing up
un ore body D00 fjot in length. A depth
of iiOO feet has been attained but as yet
no water to interfere with mining
operations has been eucoutered. The
maximum width of the ore body is DO
feet. A fo,v slips and narrow fissures
have been met i*00 feet if tho ore body
consists of white quartz bnt the west-
cm :>(i() feet consist of a dark, smoky-
blue quartz running higher ill gold
values. The walls am usually very
tree. Subsequent to the deposition of
tho ore, dykes and fractures were in-
truded followed by movements more or
less in the direction of the plane of the
vein, with the result ti at other fissures
were tormed extending diagonally to
the strike of tho vein. These iuttor fls-
Burea caused au oxidising process producing n band of carbonate and au iu
crease in gold value, As yet not audi-
cient stuping has been done to ascertain thorough ly the structural nature
of the vein, consequently mistakes arc
apt to arise. For iustane, in cue level a four foot dyke couieB squarely up
in the footwall where it turns ut
right angles to the left along the wall
and continues coiniug gradually to the
rigid for ;.'() feet where it crosses the
drift squarely. Un going through the
dyke slate was found, and, orossout-
ing the outerside, it was found it suddenly turned again. It is imnossible
to ascertain bow or where the dyke
proceeds into the banging wall as yet.
Failure to examine closely tbo footwall
rock led tho managers astray. So far
no special system of work has been
adopted though probably a combined
.system of crib work will be followed.
There nre two classes of ore in the
mine namely mill stuff and crude ore
The former is sent direct to the mill,
the latter,Which Is partly crude galena,
partly oxidised ore or carbonate (of
limited amount), is shipped direct to
the Hall Mines sineltor. There is a 40-
stamp mill of 860 pounds at the mine.
The battery is in four sets of 10-stnmps
each. It is driven by water power
from a IVI ton wheel and can crush
over 100 tons per diem. In operating
the mill one inside plate accumulates
four per cent, of gold. The upper part
of the outside plate gat tiers SO per cent,
of iecovored free gold, which passes
through the screens. The lower part is
very valuable aud pusses an extemely
small amount of free gold, The small
sizeof the galena particles, together with
their gravity causes thorn to catch
in the minute depression of tbe amalgam, therefor the plates are dressed
every six hours which results in their
always being in excellent condition.
The bullion produced averages 680-
1000 gold, -100-1000 silvor, and 20-1000
base. This shows no amalgamation ot
lead, bnt a large amount of free silver.
Other prospects in the vicinity are
uot yet BuffloHntly developed to show
whether it is exceptional iu its chaiac-
ter. It is highly probable however,
that tbe success in store for it will
bring tho Salmon River country into
greater prominence,
At the conclusion nf tbe paper there
was considerable applause and then
followed a short discussion after which
tho president called upon Mr. Howard
West to j read his paper ou "Small
Economies in Mining."
This subject, said Mr. West, was an
nil important one as all the world's
| minora! produce depended on the
j strictest economy being observed. Of
| lato years great strides had been made
in this direction—notably intheTranB-
vaal. where   the   cyanide process   has
raised the 8tandard of efficiency hither j
to attained there.    In   British Oolum-I
bia   isolated   examples of   economical
mine management compared favorably j
with   some   of the  best  undertakings i
elsewhere. Certainly there were disad- i
vantages   in   tbis  country to  contend
with, still there was ample room for a
more general system of economy.    For !
instance in the Slocan, where he -(Mr.
Howard   West)   had   resided   for  five
years, economic principles   were   most
elementary,   Owing to the richness of
Hie ores there,   tho element   of  chance
played a   considerable   part.    On   the
other hand in tlio Rossland camp where
the ore was as n rule low grade, quantity more than   quality   brought   mat
ters  down   to  a  more  mathematical
basis.   In ihe Slocan only ores of fairly
bigh grade will pay to   Bhip.    Accord
int! to the   report  of the   Minister   of
Mines for the past twi vears the average value of the   ore   shipped   iu  the
Slocan was 103 ounces in silver and 4(1
per cent, of lead to   tne  ton     The   allurement nf a quick return often tempted a mine manager to cxtraot only the
rich ores of a mine ,   neglecting   those .
which, if  properly worked, would pay
a    small     percentage.    By   bo    doing j
many low  grade  properties  suffered.
However, the steady influx  ot   capital
meant thnt .more   attention  wonld  be I
paid to the   quantity   of  tonnage.    If |
low grade ores were  worked   the   pro-!
dnction of the Slocan would be trebled
and    the   accumulation     which    was
now a burden would then become capital.    Iu Ontario and Quebec ores running as low as six ounces in silver aud
10 per cent in lead to tbe   ton could be
worked at u   profit.    One great evil in
mine management   was   the  employment of unqualified engiueeis as   managers or superintendents.    This was  a
frequent cause of waste   and   extravagance.    Again   the high cost of transportation and   treatment  and also  the
duty on lead were   serious   considerations   As to treatment, owners should
guarantee to send  their  whole  year'y
output to one smelter   and   make   the
best terms   they   could.    They   should
also eliminate as far as possible all in
jnrinus   material   from their   ore.    A
strict economical   system   of  accounts
should   also   be     observed,   but   this
branch of mining   economy  would  be
dealt with by Mr.  Hardman.
Mt. Howard West concluded with
saying that in mining the highest professional skill was the cheapest in
the long run.
The paper was well receivetl and after a short discussion, Mr. Hardman
stated that he had written a long paper
dealing with nu elaborate s stem of
mining book-keeping. He, however,
only read a synopsis of his paper the
which ho stated would shortly be printed with figares and comparative tables
Mr. H. li. Cnwsdaile then addressed
(he meeting. He referred to tho action of the legislation in passing hurriedly tlio Eight-Hour law and stated
that the measure was both unexpected
and uncalled for. Tne greatest caution was needed in dealing witb laws
that restricted in anyway the freedom
of contract and he gave instances of
this in New Zealand. The act was unfair for it only aimed at metalifn'oiis
mines, whereas laborers on railway
tunnels did not come under tho ant.
Ho bogged to move the following resolution :
"Bo if resolved that this Institute
feels Hie necessity of recording its
strong disapproval of recent legislation
in this Frounce, legislation that was
unasked fir by the miners and which
interferes with the freedom of contract by restricting tbe hours of labor
underground the which bas lead to the
closing down of many active mines
in this Province aud has caused a
disturbance of the cordial relations
which bad hitherto existed between
capital and labor ; also that tho committee be authorised to take suoh action as it may think fit nnd forward a
copy of this resolution to the Hon. the
Minister of Mines. "
Mr, Bell (the Secretary) asked what
steps bad been taken hy the mine owners to have Hie obnoxious act repealed?
The members from the East bad only
heard nf the net by reading the local
newspapers, They now understood
tbe  gravity of the situation.
Mr. Roderick Robertson said that the
commercial men bad raised a protest
iu the shape of a resolution from the
joint Boards of Trade of Kootenay.
Mr. Heddlo pointed out that cna|
miners were, not affected by Hie act.
Mr. Mann created much laughter by
stating that in his opinion the day of
34 hours should be divided into equal
thirds, viz., eight hours for work,
eight hours for amusement and eight
hours for rest.
Mr. Roderick Robertson explained
the extraordinary methods which wen-
adopted iu passing the act and which
are too well known now to recapitulate.
A member wanted to know if au
eight-hour day was not the most economical for both employer and employee?
Mr. CroRsdaile explained that in actual practice the hours of labor in tbe
mines (working two shifts) weie reduced from 18 to 18 hours iu tho 24
hours.
Mr. Dick thought it ii mistake for
a body representing the whole Dominion to tuke any part in localpolitios.
The president pointed ont that the
resolution did not cull for any action,
but. only an expression of opinion.
Mr. Bell said that the Institutejwould
belli till Provinces equally. It, had
aided Nova Scotia in repealing certain
harmful amendments to the mining
laws there and it was determined to
fight against any attempts of the legislatures to injury the mining interests of the Dominion.
The resolution wns then put and
carried unanimously, the result being
greeted witli applause.
Mr. Feodore Boas then in an admirable speech thanked Mr. Fowler for
his exceedingly able paper and also
Messrs. Howard West and Hardman
for tbeir contributions. Ho referred
in eulogistic terms to the biilliunt
future of British Columihu and said
that the Institute would use every
effort to make known the great mineral wealth that only needed capital to
develop. He ''(included with a warning against bogus companies and wildcat, schemes.
Mr. A. Stevenson seconded Mr. Boas.'
resolution and said that the sooner
the mine owners got together and din
some missionary work with tbo Provincial legislators the better it would
be for the miues.
A for mill vote of thanks was then
passed and tifti r a short discussion ou
the form in which the Institute's report was to be published the meeting
adjourned

Mr. Hugh Sutlierlanils present visit
to British Columbia is in the oapactiy
of Managing Director of the Dominion Copper Co.. Limited, one of the
largest organisations of the kind in
Canada, having an authorised capital
of $5,000,00u. The President is Senator Oux, nnd Mr. Win. Mackenzie, the
famous railway man, is Vice-President. Other directors ate Mr. D. D.
Mann and Mr .1. W. Flavelle. The
Company has purchased ami amalga
mated the well known copper mines of
the Phoenix oamp In tha Boundary
district, consisting of tbe Brooklyn
and Standard, the Stemwinder and
Montezuma, and the Haw Hide nnd
Idaho, the most Important consolidation of oopper mines that has yet been
brought under one management iu
Brilish Columbid. It is not intended,
however, that the operations of the
Company shall be confined to these
properties, as it has taken power onder
its charter of incorporation to acquire,
manage, develop, work,and sell mines,
mineral claims, and mining pioperties
generally, at its discretion. The flotation of this Company haB occupied a
ojusiderable portion of Mr. Sutherland's vime during the summer that is
just passed ; bnt it has been successfully accomplished, and all transfers
and other arrangements necessary to
the completion of the deal have been
made. The Company, fortified with
all the capital required for the most
extensive operations, is prepared for
aotive work. Within the next month it
will instal new machinery ol the latest and best description. The^e operations are in progress now, and when
completed the Compauy will be in a
position to give employment to between a hundred and it hundred and
fifty men. In view of the labor troubles, however, it is not yet deoided
whether active operations shall proceed at once, or be held in suspense
until the present disturbed condition
of the mining industry shall afford
some promise of settlement.

is well developed, The Wilcox is now
under bond for $150,000. Among
other cluiraB in whioh Mr, Mnrshall is
interested ure the Pandora, Lorn nnd
Smuggler. Mr. Marshall and his partners having pushed development work
this season ure highly gratified over
thoresnltA of their labor, as all of their
claims havo improved greatly from the
work eloue.and gives them a new hope,
which is fast oryetalizing into a certainty, and a firmer grip ou the beveled edge of prosperity which they are
so strenuously striving to attain. The
properties are gold, oopper propositions
all the way through. Mr. Marshall
states that more work hns been done
on miuing claims in Ymir district this
season than iu the past three years,
and that the developments tbns ninde
have been uuifoimly good. "The ren-
son for so much work having been
prosecuted is very plain," says Mr.
Marshall. "All mining men realize
that in this country tho day of wild
cats has passed. As summer snn dispels the fug, so has the clear vision of
the investor in miniug property, in
duced the wild cat to fade away. The
wild cat boomer's occupation has eluded him, and be is now selling stocks
on the lung capacity of the noisy and
irrepressible gentlemen (?) who represent tho civilized world in the prize
ring. Mining property must be developed and opened up m these days to
secure purchasers. Work must tie done
on the claim before it can bo sold, if
for nothing more than as an earne-it of
good faith on the part of the owner.
If it iB not done an offer to sell will
not even be considered. That the
Ymir district will continue to improve,
and mauy times double its present ore
product isi only a mutter of time. That
the quantities and values are there is
no Iongor u matter for proof.''

The Rainy Day, on Wild Horse
Oreek, 1 mir, is being rapidly developed by tbe Gold Reef Mining & Milling Compauyy, Ltd., which owns the
property. A force of men is at work
on the No. 2 shaft, which is now down
80 feet on No. 2 vein, and is nil in ore.
Average samplos aoross the lend ot
depth nf 15 feet, gave $40 iu gold,and a
sample from the pay streak gave
186.40. The load has widened out till
it 1b eight foot wide, with foot wall
still unexplored. A force is at work
building winter quarters, as it is intended by the company to push
development duriug the winter.
There has been auother strong ledge
fonnd on this property whicr is being
examined with a view to determine
its dip, etc., and the company's intentions are, as soon hb sufficient depth is
attained to prove the vein, No. 2, on
which they are sinking to be a true
Assure, to cornmenoe tunnelling at a
point so as to tap nil three leads. The
tunnel is to be an adit, which by striking tho shafts on Nob. 1 and 2 veins,
will prove a valnable auxiliary for
draining and vontilating tho proposed
works. The buildings are Hearing
completion, and will be sufflciantly
large to aocommodato a strong force of
men, and will have a blacksmith
■hop  as  an   annex.   Considering  all

worked this winter.
The Toronto syndicate that bought
the Marion mine ut New Denver has
bought the Merrimac, along side of it.
The crushing machinery for the
Ruth mines has arrived from Chicago,
and will soon bo in position at the
Ruth concentrator.
Percy Dickenson of Slocan City, for
his Montreal company, has bonded the
Noonday mine, near Silverton.
Work has been commenced on the
long tunnel on the Ivanhoe, which
will be rnn in to tap the ledge at a
depth of 1,000 feet from the apex of the

YMIR ALL RIGHT.
The Ymir people feel /ery much encouraged over the outlook for tho
camp. Although businoss in a mercantile sense is not exceptionally good,
the development of the camp has been
increased wonderfullly this season.
and tho miners and prospectois ure
still in the hills, taking advantage of
every fine day to increase the value of
their claims by woiking them steadily.
As the business men realise that the
only truo way to prosperity is through
the development of the many rich
mines in thnt district, a sense of security is felt among them, as tbey contemplate the large amount of work beiug done.

In an interview iu the Ottawa Free
Press Mr. E. B. Eddy grows enthusiastic over this portion of the Dominion. Ho believes in our mines with a
confidence unbounded. The laigest
gold, silver nnd coal mines in the world
are here iu his estimation. To quote-
Mr.  Eddy:
"There is room in the Northwest
for 10,000,000 people, aud in less than
25 years there will lie more people
west of Rat Portage than in all Canada
at present. The east can holp this
development and all they want is encouragement.
"Nobody knows the country unless
they have seen it. An instance of this
is in the town of Fernie. Last year
there were but three huts ; uow 1,000
people reside there." Speaking of the
Crow's Nest Pass Railway, he said it
was au excellent route, but he could
not see where the stories of the rough
land oould have originated from, as it
s just   the  opposite   for most   of   Ihe
way.

From statements that have been
made there is au impression abroad
that the (jneen Bess is paying the Union scale, $8.50 for short day. This
is not so,. The Queen Bess has contracted for a consitlerable amount of
tunnelling, at a rute per foot. If the
contractor is paying the scale that is
his affair, and if he can square it witb
his profits, ho will doubtless be satis-
tied aud no one else will liave~cause tit
complain.
