Foot Ball Club Organized.
Last Saturday evening a meeting
wss held in the Filbert block for the
purpose of orgsnizing an association
foot ball club. About 20 admirers
snd participants in this class of athletics were present. John S. Gusty
was elected captain and Wm. Lawson
secretary-treasurer. A committee of
three, Byron Cliffe, Tomas Lawrence
and Andrew Grierson, was elected to
assist the captain and secretary in
management. Wm. MacAdams and
Dr. Mllloy, on account of their ignorance of the rudimentary principles of
the game, were elected president and
vice-president. The initiation fee
was placed st f 1.00, snd the members
unanimously decided that the club
should be self-sustaining.   The prac-
Last Sunday afternoon the Sandon
foot ball team vs. an impromptu team
composed of members of the Miners
Union played a game of foot ball in
Levi's park, near Cody. The ground
is small and far from level, but in
this land of angles and perpendicular
Kraiiies it is the only area that can
e used for a game without danger of
kicking the ball off the earth alto
gclher. The weather was bad, a
variation of sunshine, snow ami
showers, but the boys were out for a
game and their enthusiasm made up
for the inclemency.
In the first half the miners had the
down hill kick and made two goal?
inside of six minutes. After tilts it
was hard work on both sides until
almost time when the Sandon team
scored a goal, making it 2 -1 in favor
of the miners.
In the second half the Sandon boy*
took the down-hill course snd had it
pretty much their own way, scoring
three goals. Notwithstanding the
had condition of the grounds some
very clever playing was done. Kel-
sen and Reegan of the miners' team
demonstrated their abilities on many
occasions, while Gusty and Wni.
Cliffe did their usual good work for
the Sandon team. George Simpson
made a record kicking goals. Dr.
Milloy acted as referee snd did not
hamper the teams with decisions but
kept them playing. The score was
4   2 in favor of the Sandon team.

The Brass Band dance on Tuesday
evening was a success worthy of the
efforts of the members of the band.
About 40 couple* thoroughly enjoyed
themselves in Virginia hull until a
reasonably late hour. A very nice
luncn was served in the hall.
The band is at last coming in for a
share of the populsrity it deserves.
The members have been most faith
ful in their efforts to produce good
music and it is encouraging to see
their work appreciated.
The members feel indebted to the
ladies for the assistance tendered In
arranging the details of Tuesday
evening's affair, and wish especially
to thank Mrs. Funk and Mr Duffy
for their assistance with the musical
part of the program.

"I have no hesitation in saying the
Nelson and Slocan miners' unions will
not accept the reduced scale of wages,
of |3 for the new eight hour shift, offer,
ed by the mine owners."
Thus said James Wilkes, traveling
organiser of the Western Federation of
Miners tor British Columbia and the
state of Washington.   "And the result
will be a lockout or strike, as you have
a mind to call it "
Such was his terse reply to the
sn inquiry for some definite statement
aa to what the miners' unions were going to do. It was given just previous
to the organiser leaving on the noon
train for Whitewater, where he went to
form another union. He had good ma,
terial to work with, as that camp had
about 200 miners, who met Mr. Wilkes
and discussed the situation, aud afterward perfected the organisation of a
That morning Mr. Wilkes was a vcrv
busv personasre at the local union club
rooms, attending to an accumulation of
correspondence and receiving the reports of the local officers He cordially
received the correspondent and talked
freelv on the subject of the eight-hour
law. saving: "I am inclined to think
that the public mind is possessed of an
exaggerated idea of the seriousness of
the present situation. My impression
is that there will be no trouble in any
part of the province, excepting possibly
Nelson and Slocan districts, and in the
latter manv mines will be shut down for
a few weeks, as they usually do at this
season of the vear, owing to difficulty
encountered by reason of surface water
Hooding the inner workings.
"The proposition of the miners of
Nelson snd the Slocan to reduce the
wages to S8 per day is, in my opinion, a
most unreasonable one. for the reason
that It is admitted that ��h* men will accomplish more in proportion to the
hours worked in an eight-hour day than
thev will in a ten-hour day. It is also a
well-known lact that out of ten hours
the men were required to stay in the
mines in the past, probably less than
nine hours were actually consumed ��
labor. This applies particularly to Nel
son and 81ocan, where it is all practically manual labor, very few machines
being used.
"Further, the eight hour work day
will only reduce the working hours of
any mine working two shifts from 19 to
16 hours���because under the ten hour
system, night shifts were required to
work only nine hours���instead of from
20 to 16 hours, ss is most generally supposed.
"Keeping these well known and admitted tacts always in mind, is it not
fair and reasonable to suppose that
equally good results can be obtained
under the eight hour system of the future as was ever accomplished In the
past by the ten hour system ? Why is
it that coal miners only work eight
hours in the province? Because, as
their mangers will tell you, better and
more satisfactory results can be secured by the eight hour sytem than by the
"Apart from this, assuming for the
purpose of dlcussion, the mine owners
would suffer a slight loss as a result of
the initiation of the reform. I am unwilling to admit that the mines of the
district, presumably the richest silver-
lead producers of the world, are operated at such a small margin of profit
that a very material reduction in wages
is necessitated. It is a significant fact
that the entire opposition to the eight
hour movement comes from the communities that have not given the principle a fair trial, and on the other hand
those that instantly complied with the
law have not, at least to my knowledge,
made any expression of dissatisfaction
at the results achieved: and in conjunction with this, the fact that the War
Eagle mine at Rossland, one of the
largest employers Of labor, managed by
J. B Hastings, known throughout the
west as a prominent and successful
mining man, has adopted the eight-hour
principle of their own accord.more than
twelve months before the law competed
them to do so,ls the strongest argument
1 can submit In support of our contention.
"1 also believe that considerable opposition to this reform comes from people who do more mining with the pen
than pick and drill.and is in some cases
inspired bv political bias and prejudice.
It Is surprising to think so much opposition should bo forthcoming to a reform
which means so much to the improvement of the laborers of this province
without a corresponding loss to their
"In mv opinion 13.50 per day is not
too much pav for good miners in this
country. Neither do I think that good
miners will work for less."
Asked If James R. Sovereign, the
noted labor leader, would come here to
help the local unions, he replied: "I do
not think it is likely he will come here
in connection with the eight hour law."
The strength of the unions is roughly,
as follows: Rossland, 1.000; Tmir, 160;
Nelson, 260; Sandon and Siiverton combined nearlv 500; and the new union at
Whitewater about 100.
That the mine owners of the silver-
lead properties of British Columbia are
an organisation is not generally known,
though the miners' unions are of the
opinion that the organization known as
tne Silver-Lead Mine Owners of British
Columbia, that was perfected May 8,
was formed to antagonize their unions
in the matter of reduced wages and to
fight them on general principles. This
opinion is wrong in every sense of the
word,as a careful reading of the articles
of association and bylaws that have
been issued will show.
The Stiver-Lead Mines Association of
British Columbia was formed mainly
"to foster the interests of the mining industry of British Columbia, and more
especially to advance and protect the
interests of the silver-lead producing
mines." Not one word Is said In opposition to the miners' union, either directly or indirectly, or with regard to
any scale of wages to be pail to the
employees of the mine owners represented in the association. Sandon is
named as the head office; only the mine
owners or the active managers will be
eligible to membership. The membership fee is t25. The raising of aodi-
tional funds that may be needed for
carrying on the affairs is provided for
in a oy&w which allows a monthly assessment of from one-quarter to one-
half of one per cent of the monthly pay
roll, and from one-tenth to one-fifth of
one per cent of the monthly smelter returns.
H. B. Alexander, of Sandon, has been
elected president, and F. A. Wood the
treasurer. A vice president each was
elected from Nelson, Kaslo,Slocan lake.
East Kootenay, Lardo, Ainsworth and
two from the Slocan district. The executive committee is composed of J. M.
Harris, A W. Wright, G. Noel Brown,
George Hughes, B. C Riblet,B.J. Perry,
and P. J. Hickey. There are 27 mining
companies represented in this new association.

And our dear mamma would let him
Play with me.
But when once I had looked at him
I cried out, "Oh, dear!   Iathathim*
Thev said, 'Tea,and you may kiss him!*
WeO, I'm sure rd never miss him,
Be's such a fright!"
He* so small it's Just amaiing,
And you VI think he was biasing,
He's so red;
And his nose Is like a berry,
And hell bald as Uncle Jerry
On his bead.
He's no Mad of good whatever.
And he cries as if he'd never,
Never stop;
Won't at up���you cant arrange htm,
Oh, why don't father change aha
Now we've got to drew aad feed him,
And we raaOy didn't need him,
And I cannot think why father
Should have bought him when I-rather
Have a dog!

WHAT   18   THB  LAW?
all holders of free miners certificates who took the precaution to get
a new license dating from the _rst
day of June, thereby quieted all
doubts within themselves and
made themselves doubly secure
against any possible complications
that might arise some day in the distant future through the vaguely
worded clause in the new law re
latingtothe subject. There Is always the possibility of any law be
ing construed differently from what
its trainers intended, snd anybody
is at liberty to accept or not to accept the laws as laid down by the
government so long ss they pay for
that privilege. It is true that all
questions in court are deckled by the
construction that is put upon the law
by the judge hearing the esse, but
in the absence of the supreme courts
decision upon the question at lane
the order of the Minister of Mines will
govern all free miner, certificates
issued or to be issued. The following
order wss issued by the Minister of
Mines two months ago:
"Notice is hereby given that an
individual free miners   certificate
taken out or renewed before the 1st
May, 1899, Is vslid for one or more
years from the date of issue.    An individual free miner's certiflcate taken
out or renewed after, Abe 1st May,
1899, and before the .1st May, 1899,
will be valid only until such 31st
May.   The fee for such certificate for
such fractional put of the year will
be, pro rata, proportionate to the tee
for tne entire year.    A further free
miner's certificate may be taken oat,
dating irom the 31st May, at midnight, 1899, and valid for one or
more years from that date.    A table
will be distributed showing the proportionate rate to be charged for free
miner's certificates which are lined
covering only a portion of the yeer."

ItVliat tin- rartnaMon aftha Copper Trust
Means ta the World.
There Is a strong feeling of uneasiness in the minds of many of the people
of Butte in regard to the big copper
I trust which was recently formed under
the laws of the state of New Jersey with
a capital of $73,000,000. The storm centre of the trust is in Butte. Several of
the biggest properties have been gobbled up, and plans are being formulated
tor the acquiring of otherjargu inter- j
rts- plans which will undoubtedly be i
consummated. Hence the strong feel-
Ing of uneasiness, as it is feared that In
a (ew weeks Butte wilt be at the mercy
of the largest and most grasping corporations in America���the Standard Oil
r.-mpiiny, and its numerous rilled interest*.
That is why the people of Butte are
I wondering "where they are at "   Mammoth interests,herebetore held by small
jaunpanies or private Individuals are
I now in the coutrot of one man, and that
man is Marcus Daly, the avowed enemy of W. A Clark, who has been elect*
c<( president of the Amalgamated Cop-
per Co.   He is not the despot and tyrant his enemies have persistently pfc-
tured him, but he possesses such extra
ordinary power under the new arrangement that even his friends fear him
And while the feeling of uncertainty
continues, Butte people, and especially
those who fought Ualv politically, have
good cause to l��e apprehensive as to the
(utore. which, under the combine, was
m> bright    Butte has been remarkably
free from labor troubles of any kino.
mot labor there is well paid and well
organised.   But there Is a |��r��dominat-
ting feeling these days that some time
in the future the pleasant feelings be
tsreen labor and capital will be rudely
disturbed and then the trouble will be-
-in���trouble  that  will  end in untold
misery, and i��erhaps in bloodshed    For
the labor unions of Butte will fight to
the last ditch, with perhaps the same
determination and results as the union
miners in the Comr d'Alema.
Miners now receive fat 50 per day for
shift <��| eight bourn, and richly do they
'ii it.   At the present time, with cop*
l><-r nearing the '20-cent line, the companies can make very large profits and
pay good wages,but when copper drops I
otner things must drop to���that is, it Is '
not ruddered likely by some that the
trust will continue \��� pay *.*.'<( per day
when thev can import men who will be
glad to wot k for less.   Then will come
the -.tniggle between labor and capital.
But on the other hand, Marcus Daly
was Interviewed the other darby his
own pajier. the AnacondaStandard.and
hers i* iii�� vigorou* statement:
"l know pretty well that there are
thousands of minors working in Butte
who will naturally wonder where they
tome in under these changes.    1 am
willing to be interviewed accurately on
that score���I can ��|vak without reserve
no Ur as I am concerned, and I SSSUOIS
to speak lor this now oompanv    I was
brought   into   the  nrgantxatWt  after
mauy serious consultations with men
who, I am frank to say, placed more
��� rtnfldettes In my ability to manage the
properties than is justified    Be that as
it may, they all know one thing���while
I live and manage the properties there
will be no agitation over miners' wag;**
sl my end of the line    Wages will not
'us lower than they are todav    If there
Is any anxiety or* concern in Butte on
the score of miners' wage*, it will come
Irom those who keep Butte in a stew; it
will not be tho result of anything 1 say
or do,
"1 have about concluded that 1 might
������ well face the fact that mv life work
will continue and end, I suppose, in active connection with those mining inter*
esti I do not mean by what I now say
to refer to the future in a careless or ir-
royerent way. but probably 1 will be in
this work as long as most of the men
will who are Butte miners today, and If
the ruin about wages which I have just
laid down as my guide doesn't sound
quite as wine or as learned as what the
newspapers have been saying about political economy and production and the
like, 1 feel, just the same, that it is a
pretty good rule, if these Butte properties cannot afford the present wage
Another result of the trust, of the big
concentration of power,is its possibilities in a political way. A man who desires any office, if backed by the trust,
would have a walk-over. Even now the
politicians are making their plans along
that line.   And impossible aa some of

is" Hence there is a great uneasiness among
The properties included in the great
trust at  present are the Anaconda,
Washoe,  Parrot   and  Colorado.   The
Boston  &   Montana  and the Butte &
Boston will go into tho second section
of the trust, but United States Senator
W. A. Clark and F. Aug. Heinze cannot be induced by any consideration to
enter  the  copper  combine      Clark's
holdings in copper properties in Butte
are not ho very extensive, but with his
Immense Arizona properties which give
him a fabulous income, he could and
undoubtedly will block the plans of anv
trust   whenever  he  feels so disposed.
Clark is a man who succeeds in what
ever he attempts, sooner or later.   He
sometimes has to play a waiting game,
but he always gets there.
But to  return  to the copper trust,
which is the all absorbing topic of conversation,not only in Butte but throughout the world    In one way it will benefit   Butte   beyond  the  uueation of a
doubt.   Development work on Its copper mines will he, carried on on an Immense magnitude.   Shafts will be sunk
to a depth of 4,000 feet, diamond drills
will pierce every foot of ground in the
district in search of new ore ladies
This will make Butte,fors time at least
about the liveliest city in the country.
She has always been known as "the
greatest mining camp in the world."
Now she will doubly discount her former  standing    Already   this  tide  of
travel is setting in,and men are coming
i in from all parts of the United States
Inquiries are being received from all
parts o' the globe, especially from the
I >ld Country.  It is better to make haste
slowly, for nothing is assured as yet   It
is supposition for the most part.   When
there is a demand for men the outside
world will soon know it.   Now there is
a man for every job.
There is believed to be sufficient ore
in the mines of Butte to ensure a continuous  output for 50 years at least.
But each vear it is becoming lower in
grade.   Butte   is essentially a  copper
camp now.   Its greatest silver mines
are practically unworked.   If ever silver should rise to par again.the average
imagination cannot picture what Butte
will lie    On silver alone she made her
reputation  as the wealthiest camp on
record, and with copper interests added
there is no telling where she would stop.
lnWvears of life  as a copper camp,
Butte'has produced 9&)O,00O,OO0 worth
of copper alone, and her copper properties at the present stock quotation*
represent an aggregate capital of S217,-
ftai.uoo.    And it nearly all came out of a
very small belt, not "more than a mile
long and a few hundred feet wide.
JuM now real estate values are uncertain, there being no movement whatever. Manv are so uncertain as to the
future of Butte that they are trying to
sell but are unable to do so. Building
operations treat a dead standstill. In
manv places where contracts have been
let, and in some cases building commenced, orders have been countermanded for the oresent.
The department store is one phase of
the trust question lit being the orders
of the employees to buy all their sun
plies there, compulsory, and strictly
obeyed, or instant dismissal follows.)
Men or their wives, who are known to
purchase even ten cents' worth of supplies from anv other store.ure discharged at once. And spies, it is claimed,are
always on the lookout for delinquents.
Kvervthing. from silks to groceries and
meats, is carried, so there is no excuse
to go elsewhere. Another evil effect is
that all the small dealers are being
gradually frosen out. Many a man
0WSS his complete ruin to the department store. On what their employees
alone are forced to buy there, the big
stores easily make an immense profit
Hence there is a great uneasiness among
the politicians wnoforoncedo not know
"where they are at." They will soon
find out that they are at Marcus Daly's
And perhaps old scores will not be
paid and old grudges gratified?   Any
one who knows Daly knows that he is a
good hater, and possesses a remarkable
memory      No  Tammany   boas  ever
wielded the influence that Daly possesses now.   He has 5,000 men employed
in his mines _nd smelter, and many
thousands throughout the state,  not
onlv working on bia mining Interests,
but in bis hundreds of other projects.
And now as president of the big copper
trust, his swav will be absolute.   The
czar of all the Russias cannot be more
shipped. The* company will net over
$50,000 from this ore. Everthlng Is to
be put in shape at the Enterprise so that
a large force of men may be put to work
when the word is given.
The marriage of Miss Blanche OUHs to
Alex. Ferguson was happily solemnized
at 9 o'clock Wednesday morning at the
home of the bride's parents, Rev. Cle-
land officiating.     A large number of
the friends of the happy couple gathered
to witness the ceremoney. after which
a sumptuous breakfast was  served.
Mr. and Mrs. Ferguson have a host of
friends in this section where both are
widely known, and they were the recipients of many handsome and useful
presents.   They left by the morning
boat upon a short trip to Spokane and
Kootenay points.    They will return to
New Denver and will make this their

A Koeel Compressor Plant
(Nelson Miner)
One of the simplest yet cleverest
inventions relating to mining engine
< ring may now be seen at Coffee
1 reek, near Ainsworth. It is the
li\ l-r air compressor, operated by
the Kootenay Air Supply Company.
The plant consists of a shaft 196
r< et deep and about fire feet square.
At thu bottom of the shaft is the sir
chamber, a 20-foot cube. Oh the top
<>f the tower is a tank 20 feet high
nod eight feet in diameter. A flame
���*��me 500 feet long and live feet In
width runs from the creek into the
tank. A penstock runs from the tank
' <�� the bottom of the shaft
The water rising ss it enters the
tank, eauses a vacuum and the air
>ucked through over a thousand
"ibea mixes with the water and then
falls fl��wn the shaft breaking over a
"mo when It reaches the bottom.
The water then separates from the
���in', the latter in a highly com pressed
form   fHling  the   cube'-shaped    air
< hiiinber. A pipe correspond ing to a
���ft'ty valve is let into ths sir chain-
"���r and when the pressure of air ox-
veds 85 pounds the water is forced
trom the end of the pipe snd the sur
I'liiH air escapes. Tne compressed
sir is conveyed through eight-inch
pipes to wherever It is required to be
"sod. The Coffee Creek plant has a
opacity equal to 500 horse power.

The Strike.
The strike situation here is today the same as a week ago. None
of the mines have made any attempt
to resume operations. Only 120 tons
of ore were shipped out of Sandon4
this week, from the Slocan Star.
There are now probably not more
than 200 miners left in town and
business in most lines is practically
at a standstill
Surface water in most of the mines
makes it practically impossible to
work, but the country is suffering
great loss through the cessation of
The management of the Star, which
will have to make the change on
Monday, has not yet made any statement of intentions, but It is the
general opinion that $3.5C for eight
hours will be the new rate. This will
be an important factor in determining
the controversy in favor of the men.
Should the mine owners remain
obdurate and refuse to pay the 13.50
demanded the mines of Slocan will
not produce for many months. IIincrs
will not work underground for 13.00
while railroad contractors in the
Lardo and other districts are begging
for skilled rock men at the same
rate. The system of station work
which is in vogue on railroad building offers many inducements for ruck
men who understand the business.
Should the strike last many weeks
more there will not be enough miners
left in the Slocan to make a corporal's guard.
