fact that a miners'strike is in progress
in the Kootenay country,   British Columbia.    His presence is due, he says, to
the fact that the mine owners have  bad
an agent here seeking to engage miners
under   contract  to work in  the mines
that 'lo not pay the union   wages.     He

With the decreased honr. a number ol
the mine owners cut down the pay 50
cents a day and the men went on strike.
At present only about a third oi tha total number of mints are not paying the
union bcnle ot wages. No fixed scale
waa eel by the unions, but they demanded that the same amount thould lie paid

Tlie peace and tranquility which pervade
the city ure in marked contrast with the
conditions that existed a few yeurs ago
and show how popular the revolution is
with the musses. Apparently the entire
island is satisfied the change in government promises improved conditions. The
newspapers all urge moderation on the
part uf the revolutionists and advise all
citizens to refrain from disturbance.
Kigueroa was permitted to reach hia
home unmolested, aud the revolutionists
everywhere are behaving with thc utmost
moderation, even going so far as to pay
for the property taken und supplies used.
lt is believed thut ull lighting is over
and that with the arrival of the leaders
of the revolution on Sunday to take
charge of the government all cuuse for
alarm will have been removed.
Yesterday was the climax to the government. The government was powerless
to retard the progress of the revolution.
Word had come that all tlie principal
towns in the interior on the north side
had gone over. Added to this hud come
news that another hurricane was forming
and that the United States cruiser New-
Orleans and the French cruiser would he
left to the mercy of the revolutionists.
Business was practically at a standstill,
and chaos reigned. People dared not stir
from their homes at night.
ln this dilemma came Figueroa's announcement that he would resign in order
to prevent bloodshed and at once ihe situation changed.

Newport, It. I., Sept. 3.—The first of the
formal trial races between the Columbia
and Defender for the purpose of selecting a yacht to sail against thc Shamrock
in defense of America's cup resulted in
so decisive a victory for thc new b.iat that
were it not for the fact that it is desirable
to have her race as much as possible, other
contests would seem almost useless. The
yachts sailed one of thc regulation 15-
mile windward and leeward courses in an

and it took the Columbia just six minutes
and 40 seconds less time to cover the distance than it did the Defender.

The destruction of the oat crop and

much of the crop on the lower Eraser

nearly one-third of this number are
from the building trades, who while
they were earning $3 per day at their

averaged $25 per day. The building

seems to have come over the Transvaal

now if is Joseph Chamberlain, the seere-
tarv of state for the colonics, who proposes further conferences. In this and
other respects the official negotiations present a more pacific uspeet than last week.
But with the bare exception of these negotiations every other circumstance points
to war. Whether, as has been suggested
iu these dispntehes, higher powers thtu
Mr. Chamberlain have interfered in the
interests of peace or whether the secretary
has taken a leaf out of the book of President Kruger, of the Transvaal, meaning
proems!ination, can scarcely lie determined at Ihis stage.

The trouble in   the Slocan, .raised
by the issuance of the  Mite   Owners'
Association's ultimatum iu th. matter
of wages and the proper resenting of
the same by tho miners,  will   toon  V*<*>
over and    work   be  resumed  in   the
mines at union  wages.     We  venture
to say that  never in the  history of
miuing in the Rocky Mountains has a
strike been won against such apparently overwhelming odds as in  this one,
where capital was fully organized   to
opposo their men.    But, backed by u
friendly government, held up by public
opinion and  officered bv  determined
•nd conscientious men, tho  miners of
the Slocan are teaching the world what
can be done ia a righteous cause by
organized working   men   against the
arrogant demands ot capital.    By their
determined stand, their solid front and
gentlemanly  behavior,  they have set
an example and won  the admiration
of their fellow workmen    throughout
the Dominion.    This strike has shown
that British Colombia has more honest
workingmen and fewer scabs than any
other mining country on the American
Columbia.   ^	
Not less interesting was the speech
of Jos. Martin, M. P. P., who followed Mr. Mclnnes. After detailing
tbe events leading up to his dismissal,
he spoke of the present plight of the
government snd the probability of an
earlv election. We quote below some
portions of his speech.

wanted everything for themselves; they
were honest aliont Ihst. Bui that principle is dead in this province. But I
know Ihers is no danger of _ Iheir being
returned again; the Colonist, the chief
ol tltem, admits that tbey are dead.
Whether we want it o> not, JWO may
depend upon it there is bound to be a
general election in this province just ss
soon as tbe hou.*e meets. In August
last vear the government was dismissed
because tbey did not have the confidence
ol the country, and we came into power
and justified His Honor and I was heartily in sympathy with that principle.
When a government has lost the support of the house, it should so. Not in
six months, but immediately. But here
wc are in the same position again. A
government which has not the sympathy
of the people is administering the affairs of the people, and are allowed to
deal with grave questions Involving large
amounts of money. If Mr. Cotton were
to run attain in Vancouver, and I speak
advisedly, he could not save hia deposit;
and yet he is the master ot the situation.
And if we should have a general elec.
tion, in what way nre we to deride?
Things look rather chaotic. Some say,

give the keynote when he said the sovereignity of the people! Is not that a
principle broad enough for us to stand
on? The principle tbat a member is only
a member elected to do Ihe duty demanded bv bis constituents? And even
if we don't succeed, if we don't send
enough members down there to form a

W. W. B. Mclnnes, M. P. has broken away from the Laurier government
for their abandonment of their measure
raising tbe Ohine.e tax. Speaking of
the government's action in this matter
in hit Labor Day speeoh, he said:
''We have resorted to every device to
compel the government to redeem its
promises and they have absolutely refused to do so. It may serve a purpose
to send a man East, but there bas always been too much talk and too little
action. The time bas now come Ior
a'tion, r.nd I think there should be an
opportunity for tbe entire province to
pronounce on the question. But I intend to give you the chance to so pronounce. I intend to resign and see il
the united voice of 5,000 electors on
Vancouver Island will not be listened lo

Owing to a reduction in miners' wages
caused by the enforcement of (he eight

mines have  shut down.   Therefore all
workingmen are hereby warned to keep

troubles are amicably settled  between
mine owners and miners.
