Otto Ringwood.a Sandon miner drilled

competitor Burns on account of his steel

being a tight grained granite. There

and Haas. Chinese lanterns shone brightly over the heads of tl.e thmc-rs and the
joy. ua strains of the dance music, made
the pleasure seekers forgetful of the rain
beating in the streets. Thu attendance
was considerably below what had been
expected, the threathening rain storm
frightening home many who intended to
remain for tlm dance.

For a Ts-mporary Government-l'e-di-*
Final Decision of the Commission—
From President McKinley — Military
Operntlui.s not Chanced.
Manila, May 23.—-3:16 p. m.—Professor
_*lnirman, head of the United States
Philippine commission, submitted the following written propositions to the Filipinos:
"While tl.e -final de-ision as to tl.e form
of government is in the hands of congress, tlio president, under his military
powers pending action of congress, stands
ready to otl'.-i* the following form of gov
"The governor general to be appointed
by the president; the cabinet to be appointed by the governor general, all the
judges to l-c appointed by the president
the Heads of departments and judges to
he either Americans or Filipinos or both,
and also tl.e general advisory council, its
members to be chosen by the people by a
form of suffrage to be hereafter carefully
determined ujion. The president earnestly desires that bloodshed cease and the
people of the Philippines at an early date
enjoy the largest measure of self-govern'
ment compatible with peace and order."
The commission prepared the scheme
and the president cabled his approval
The Filipinos made no definite proposition except for cessation of hostilities until they can present the question of peace
to ths people.
Professor Schunnan told the Filipinos
tl at they had no means of gathering the
people together > * .e Americans control
in.-s: cf tlie ports. I. also reminded them
of the liberal form of government offered
them and pointed out that it was better
than conditions existir - under Spanish
rule. |
Senor Oozaga, fi. ,>r<*s'.dent of the Filipino commission, u-i.mHted the form of
government was hbtral. The civilian
members of the Philippine eouiii-isa. >n
have declined to co-operate with the other
members of the commission, as the former
consider Aguinaldo'* late demand preposterous, after Otis' refusal of an armistice,
referring to his wish for time in order to
consult the Filipino congress.

In spite of the depressing effect of a
revival of the slight-hour discussion,
and the widespread uncertainty ln mining circles resulting therefrom, New
Denver camp is shoring a decided Improvement in many ways. The properties being opened up close to town
are fast d*\ eloplnt. into producing

are working now, yet there is every
reason to believe the forces will be
largely increased before the summer is
far advanced.

Chicago, May 20.—A special from Wash,
ington says:
While pressing the United, States to
agree to the adrbitration of the Alaskan
boundary question the British government
has entered objection to the dispatch of
additional American troops to the terri.
tory nnd has made clear her desire to obtain an Alaskan port.
With respect to the dispatch of three
companies of regulars to Alaska to patrol
the boundary line, the purpose this government had in view was to preserve the
feaie snd prevent a conflict between Canadian aud American miners, which re-torts
from Governor Brady show is likely to
occur nt aiiy moment.
It is probable, however, that in view of
Oreat Britain's objection the troops will
not be sent to Pyramid harbor as originally intended, but wiil be located at a point
accessible to the disputed territory so as
to be available in case of emergency.
In its representations to the American
government the British government takes
the view that the dispatch of troops to
Alaska is in the nature of a menace, an
indication that the United States proposes
to retain by force the territory which it
claims, and that, consequently, it feels
that in the interest of the friendly relations between the two governments they
should nol go.

The opinion of the court of appeals for

tl.at the land came within the grant to

That old, old  struggle   between  the j
buyer aid seller of labor that can only
end when it shall   be  sensibly   settled
that no man shall live by the sweat of
other men's brows is again made prom-1
inent by an awkward attempt by the II.
C. parliament to benefit the Eellei.
It is axiomatic that to the laborer i
belongs the entire product of his labor,
yot it seems to be generally .incepted |
that this can be true and still that u sh.iv>'
of the product may rightfully go as rent,
Interest or profit, to property. Tlie
writer hereof plainly sees that in tli is
generally accepted contradiction lies the
whole trouble; yet at this time ho is not
permitted to discuss a matter of such
g.eat importance.
To a brief response to the ultimatum
of the Slocan Mine Owners' Association,
he is confined.
The writer of said ultimatum starts ofT
with the illiterate intimation that the
B. C parliament acts in both a lejji**-
'a'iveandan executive capacity. Al*o
it is at the same time implied that the
writer and those lor whomh e writes are
11 •tonished, not that the Ittw exists, but
thut it should bo enforced. From which
it seems legitimate to conclude that il
any of the mine managers ot the Slooan
wero also executive officers of 3. C. their
oaths to faithfully execute tho laws
would lightly bind them In the enforcement of such laws as favored th'j woik-
The second paragraph of this uhi-
matu'ii pl.iciilly states tint the mine
managers of the association qansi'liT
thai laws should he passed only after
C insnltai ion with them, and doubles the
dose bv admitting that they had the pill
to do aU in their power to have the law
hr-rd in abeyance—a modern parallel of
Joshua commanding the -inn to stand
still. For tho instruction of mine
malingers it seems necessary to say here
that statcunei! consult only Il.e science
oi politics nhen hauling laws, mid that
the interests ol th? state and nit of mine
managers,as such, are proper nmtt.Ts
'or their consideration.
Tho third paragraph slates the
deliberate lie that the scale ol wn^cs and
the hours of labor were MtUfaeCory to
both buyer and Feller of labor. When
the intelligent seller-*hall lie satisfied ly
netting''nil there is in if* the buyer will
have gone out of business.
Tiie purpose of tho Association as
stated in the sixth paragraph, is plainly
false, and is a weak, unnecessary lie.
<li.lv thnt part of the mining intenstsof
tho province owned by thou is the object
of Iheir p rotr.-tirn. They know and
everybody knows that thev are org nixed
that they may continue in (he future as
in the past to get a rich rake-oft'from lh e
labor of Ihe miners—that Ihey are organized to prevent tl.e miners from deriving
any benefit from the new eight hour law.
or to neutralize the effect of the law.
The fun hur ulatm «( lita. A-locial.o-
that it is not a combination of employers
against employees is ai other silly and
gratuitous lie; since the struggle for lhe
l.enetits of the law comes directly between
the organized association and organized
The B. C. government has placed no
appropriation at Ihe disposal of the miners
and the miners will fight this fight with
their own funds.
And Ihey will fight. For they aro not,
and never have been as lhe ultimatum
says friends of Ihe mine-owners. Pretty
friends they are who reap when they have
rotRown.whorob us of a portion of the
products of our labor!
In the seventh paragraph it is pretended that there has been a close relation between the price paid for labor and the
ability of the mine owner to pay. But the
miner will deny that the ability to pay
has cut nny fiicure it. the price paid for
labor. Nor do they expect it to cut any
figure more than they can compel. Why,
the i'rofith on the output from the Payne
mine alone would come near meeting the
pay roll of the Slocan! Why pretend that
the owners of tho Payne, who sign the
ultimatum, would pay i'A 50 per day of
eight hours if thev could afford to doso?
In coiichHon the tinners of the 'ilthnn-
1111.1 natroni/.inglv fay to the oiin.-i-t that
the wicked B, C. law-makers arc lo blnni-'
if their future is to be worse than their
past. Between the lines of this c- nclu.)
ing puragrnpli it is written tl a' the
minora wonlu gladly condemn their legislators with their votes, if they had a
chance. But that is not the case. The
miners want reduction of bourn. Why, of
course they do. However, this law alone
does not benefit them. Therefore tlu-y
will stand by this law and ask for lUrn
supplementary legislation as will give
them reduction of hours without reduction of pay. They «ill ask for compulsory
relation bet ween pay and ability to pav.
Pltimately Ihey will ask that the lahoi
t'.at makes the mines valuablesliall have
the value, an.! all of it.
Organized laborers have heretofore acknowledged Ihe legitimacy of rent, interest and profits and have 'contended only
for somo share of iln- lienefits resulting
fiom inventions, discoveries ami Improved methods of production. Upon
snob premises they easily esiahlist ed
their riebt lo reduction of hours with increased pav But upon far better nrem-
isesthey will soon tie found refusing to
woik atall for private mine-owners nnd
denying the right of property to increase
without the labor of its owner as fur in-
stsnre, money now does, when at interest
The mine owners have said to the
miners: This will we do, nothing less,
nothing more. To the Legislators thev.
have said: We will nullify your law.
A-* you reduce the hours ne will correa-
l ondi.i-.-l v red nee the pay, you shall not
benefit laborers bv legislation.
The laborers say to Ihe mine owners;
You have never paid us more than vou
felt compelled to pay. You have always
worked *ik as hard and as ling as you
could; have always tried for the biggest
possible rake-off. and we recognize you
as our old enemy, in tbis Eight Hour
And we say back to you tbat a struggle
it will be.
W.-shall organize and work together In
every wav, not only to got this pittanee
of a benefit in reduction of hours without reduction of pay, bu* to get all that is
ours nnd to lake away from you the power
to live heller than we by taking a rake*
ofT Irom the products of onr labor.
