prcdojnlnatmg.   These were a sara-
sbipment from tho Minnesota Iron

an freight, not at the city wharf but
ie beacK near the Kaslo k Slocan R,
pot.   Here a special train was in
llness and the importation was herd-
board, the coach doors locked and
whole hurried over the line to the
house ol Ihe Payne Mining Company
v the Payne mine, near Sandon.
this the three members of the Sii—
Uad Mines   Association   present

Wakefield Concentrator.
Two more cai loads of machinery for
the Wakefield concentrator arrived
here yesterday morning and is being
freighted up to the mill. Among the
other machinery is a big Make crusher
with a 0 by 15 Inch jaw and weighing
over eight tons. All the machinery tbat
has arrived heretofore has already been
Installed in Its proper place at the mill
and but little more machinery, outside
of tha electrical plant, has yet to arrive
so the new Wakefield mill will soon be
'n running order. This mill is being
erected by White, Rogers k Co., of Ssn-
Francisco, for tho Wakefield company of
this place snd is being built under the
charge of J. R. McRao an experiemed
engineer and mill builder. When completed this mill will be the most modern
snd finest equipt concentrating plant
ever erected in Canada, no expense is
being spared and everything is of tbe
best quality and finest   workmanship.

re especially noteworthy from tbe fact
hat tlm deposit in   which they are dug
i  tbe only  one  known   in the whole
■orld where the diamond is found in the
iriginal matrix in which it was formed.
When the workings were begun at Kiin-
herley the   diamonds  were found   In
disintegrated "earth" at and near the
surface, but as the workings were deepened the "blqe earth" was found in its
native   state, rock-Uke  and   requiring
to be blasted to be taken out.
Many changes in the methods employed have been found necessary as
i he mines were developed. At present
lhe working ia entirely from shafts dug
to the blue ground deposits at some
distance from the original pits and by
trasvorse drivings. . Home of these shatts
go down to a depth of 1,500 feet. Great
.are hai to he taken to prevent these
workings being filled up by a caving of
the upper soil about them, and it would
be easy ior tlie Boers, not only to destroy
millions of dollars' worth of machinery
about the pit mouths, but also to fill up
the pits so that It would be a work of
years to resume diamond gathering.
It is estimated tbat 1,300 Europeans
and Americans and 5,700 natives were
employed during tbe last year In the
operation of these mines. Most ot the
machinery employed is of American
design and construction and mnch of it
is ic the care of American machinists,

Por the lart few months the users of
gasoline have noticed a falling off in the
quality of the article, the use of which ot
late has left a gummy resinous deposit
after it. Inquiry into tbe cause of this
has laid bare another little piece of
dirtiness on the part ol a corporation,
whose scoro card shows nlniost everything from arson down to petty spile-
work. For some time tho Standard Oil
Company has hud a monopoly of gasoline
manufacturing. As a rival of the coal
oil lamp, tbere has been lately introduced

here. This is a cheaper lump than the
oil lamp and tlie sale of coal oil fell off
In favor of gasoline. The S. O. Corc-
pany prefer to sell their coal oil and to
shut out the gasoline lamp are distributing a gasoline containing a large amount
of resin. This resin clogs up the tubing
of the gaaolini lamp and soon renders
ihem unlit for use. Thus when your

Iaondon, Jan.  15.—The   frivolity    displayed in his recent speeches by Mr. Balfour, thc government leader in' thc house
of commons, has landed what has been
known  as  the strongest government of
modern times in the slough from whieh
extrication is difficult if not doubtful. His
light-hearted remarks, whieh were pleasantly accepted by the nation when times
were good and all was well, ure offensive
to a people mourning for lost sons and
deeply angered by the unprecedented re
verses.   Air. Balfour, if he had tried, could
not have more successfully put his countrymen on edge, and when Ixinl Salisbury
speaks he will have much to atone for.
The memory of Mr. Chamberlain's "alliance" s|_eech was dying away before Mr.
Balfour put his foot siill deeper in the
mire.    The conservatives hope that Mr.
Balfour will follow Mr. Chaimberlain's lead
and  "keep a  discreet  silence."    As  the
Saturday Review, one of the government's
staiinehest supports, puts it, "the administration is now fat* to face not with tho
Opposition but tne nation.   t| i, a crisis

strength in Butte. What to do with
the Increasing number of patients is a
problem. Both pest houses are crowded to their utmost capacity, and If any
more are taken their lieds will have to

the outbreak of the disease 70 patients
huve been taken to Uie pest houses, 40
remaining there, and only three dying.
Juat the moment a touch of cold weather arrives the doctors expect many
deaths from the disease. The Attorney General haa delivered (he opinion
that if the schools have to lie closed all
teachers will be entitled to full pay

Without impugning the motive of
Member H ggiu'- suggestion regarding
the 8-hour Law, wo might say that no
matter from what source the suggestion came, a cauous of mine managers
could not have drawn up a nicer plan
for the furtherance of their self-interests. Could anyone think of a better
scheme for the disintegration of the
local Miners' Uuions than tho following proposal of the member for Esquimau!
A Royal Commission to be appointed to investigate the workings of the
Law aud to fi.id some means of bringing together the managers and miners
in the Slocan. During the session of
tho Commission, the Lsw to be suspended and the mines allowed to start
up under the old conditions. The law
to be enforced or rejected according to
the report of the Commission.
This, as we understand it, is what
Mr. Higgins will propose in the House.
What would be the probable consequences should the plan be adopted!
Iu the first place, most of the mines
would begin immediate operations,
paying 93.50 for a ten-hour shift The
local miners will be asked to go to
work. Under these circumstances, a
good many of thc men would refuse to
go to work under the old system, having sacrificed so much for the priuciph.
of the 8-hour legislation. Thus, for a
beginning, we would see two factions
among the now united miners.       i
Then, supposing the miners accepted
the couditions and went to work, there
would be an excellent opportunity to
advertise the strike off and to import
plenty of men. At the conclusion ot
the Commission, should the finding be
adverse to the 8-hour Law, all would
be well, as the men could not withstand the law. Suould it be favorable
to the miuers aud against the repealing of tbo law, what would bo the
chance for the menl They cuuld not
hope to be able to take up tlie strike
where tbey left off, owing to the like
ly presence of a great many atratigi
miners in their inidit.
Mr. Higgins .nay mean well but
his efforts appear too one-sided to
meet with favor in the affected district*.
jEmily Edith.     He' never ope rated the
mine for ono single shift under the 8-
hour law.
How thon has he acquired the know-
lodge necessary to testify against the
law?   Quite possibly in tho samu way
in which ho acquired tho   inforraat ion
supplied in his letter to Mr. Cotton, in
which h.e stale 1 that thc miners arrund
Sijvertpn had raided his mine, arraer,
with picks and pick-handles.      ThiB
.tateraenj had no foundatim whatever
and was only advanced for thu purpose
11 having a special policeman stationed
at the mino and to   throw  a sinistei
jght upon the peaceful demonstration
of t io local Union.    The Emily Edith
and its few (.cab  iniuors   were never
at any time in danger, as Mr.  Hope
must have well known.     His modest
request for militia, for to  such an absurd length did he go, was only another attempt to blackguard tho miners.
At the present time, tho Hop"
Giavelry Co. are advertising fir
claims ip this district; a peculiar proceeding for a firm whose senior men -
beri| willing to declare Under oath
that the district is ruined for speculators.
The whole trutli of tho matter i>
that Mr, Hope, and many others like
him, favored the 8-honr Liw as lonj.
as they thought the way clear to re»i
all the benefits of it for them.ulves,
but now that they aro being asked tc
give up some equivalent, they invent
pretexts for a diiallowance of the
If there is anything to be given,
count Mr. Hope out Ho is the kind
a man who will throw down a mining deal rather than pay his share ol
a com mission.

" Charles Hope, of Messrs Hope
k Graveli v, also gave avitieuce uulavur-
able to the 8-huur legislation."—From a
Vancouver report ol Commissioner
Chile's inquiry.
The Mr. Hope referred to in tha ox-
tract quoted is the one operating the
Emily Edith mine near Silverton,
which has been closed down since
June 1st., Uot.
He was the first mine operator to
express himself aa favorable to the 8-
hour law. He informed us, sometime
laat May, that under the law the mines
of the Sloean would employ three drilla
where they were now employing two;
the output of oro would increase proportionately and, he thought, "the
law was a bleasing in disguise." At
that time he feared no strike, the lo
cal Unions were weak and he h,ad no
knowledge of the Western Fudnratioiv
Two shifts of mucken would work for
the threo shift* of miners. ' Capital
would bo tempted into tbe province as
a result of the law, as the miners
could not expect moro than a proportionate wage, or 82.80 a ahift, and
this would ho heralded abroad at a reduction in wages, although, Mr. Hope
naively observed, of oourse it would
not bo a r»dncti(\B.
The Mine Owners' latest movn is
the imports: mi of acarload of Swede*
and Fiulanders, to take tbe place * of
our present Canadian miners. In the
course of a few years theso same
ioreiguers will icarn our language,
laws and customs and by that lime
q ir foreign mine owners wilt be ready
io drive them out of the country and
fill their places with Chinamen.
Canada has for years been a lund of
stagnation, and with all its natural
resources has barely held ita own,
while the present generation of Canadians has seen other countries, with
'ess natural resources, forge ahead and
paas us in the march of progress. Tbe
cause is not far to seek. For years
Canada has bren merely a breed ng
ground for the United States and
other countries and as fast as Canadian
yo,.ng men grew  up  they  have  left
ur land and few ha\o ever returned.
Our immigration policy has been such
as to discriminate against our own
people and in favor of foreigners.
Our Chinese policy has tended to
drive our own peoplo out of tho land,
nnd our Anti-Alien labor law is hut a
fsree. Until these laws are changed
si as to protect or ut leait givo Canadians an even chance in their own
puutry so long will tbe stream of
outgoing Canadians continue.
