the Union Hospital of Sandon. This
institution, situated in the building
formerly occupied by the Sandon Club,
although uot commodious, ia fitted up
with every convenience and is in the
hands of thorough and competent
attendants. Dr. Guam of Sandon is Ihe
resident physician, tne nurses being
Mrs. Fleming and Miss Sarah M.
Chrisbolm, the latter a graduate from
Lowell Mass., and a trained nurse of
wide experience. Since the starting of
this institution there has been a large
number of patients successfully treated,
there being at the present time five
convalescent patients in tl.e Hospital,
The mantainunce of this institution
reflects credit upon the miners of Sandon

To day, Sandon will meet Lowery's

To-morrow, an effort is being made to
arrange a gamn between tho local team

be played in Silverton.
Matters to connection With the formation of the Slocan Football League will
be settled while all the clubs are together
to-day. Slocan City, Saudon snd Silver-

Denver beiug rather cqy in regard to it.
The proposed Slocan Citv sports, that
had been announced for the Fourth cf
July next, bave been postponed until
some time in the latter part of August
or September. This announcement on
the part of the committee has been made
necessary owing to the plans of the <J P

up their steamer "Slocan" for repairs.
The committee consider it useless to depend upon the accommodations provided
by the "Sandon" for tlio transportation

Cleveland, June 11.—What promises to
be a long and bitter contest between the
Cleveland Electric Railway (Big Consolidated) and its 900 employes has been
inaugurated by a strike which tied up all
of the 14 lines operated by the company.
These lines reach all sections of the city
and they fonn the only means of transportation for more than 100,000 people
living in a territory five miles long and
three miles wide at the south end. The
west side is affected but little, only one
line passing through that section, while
on the east side four lines of the Little
Consolidated, of which Senator Hanna is
president, are available for use by most of
the patrons of the tied-up lines in that
section. Tims far the Little Consolidated
men have refused to strike and are not
likely to go out

President Henry A. Everett says he is
willing to concede all the other demands
for the men and will adjust all other
grievances when presented by hia employees, but declares he will never retog-
nizc the union, whose demands he characterizes as tyrannical. It is well understood the company has employed men in
other cities to take the' places of the
strikers, but it is difficult to ascertain
whether many of these men are now in
the city. Only about half a dozen cars
were operated today. There were two
Euclid avenue lines and they were under
the guard of deputy sheriffs and were
operated by imported men.
A few mail cars were run by the strikers, who say they will .not obstruct the
mail. There have been several riotous
demonstrations, but none of a serious

night, and as she started down the ways.
Mrs. Oliver C. Iselin christened her "Columbia." The launching of the latest protector of Uncle Sam's sailing laurels was
probably one of the most spectacular that
has ever occurred, for the light of the day
had almost faded when she started down
the ways.

The buiial at Vancouver of Bishop Dur-
ien who for 25 years worked among the
natives of British Columbia, was the occasion of a remarkable scene.
Surrounding the bier were 6000 Indian-
chanting a death song in the native guttural tongue, swaying their bodies in unison to measured strains of music while
on an elevation in the rear of the catafalque the crucifixion of Christ was being
enacted, a lay figure representing the Savior being lowered from the cross by Indians dressed in vestments of Biblical

Wardner, Idaho, June 11.—Under the

breaking through the underbrush peppered

■When selecting a site for a tunnel to
develop or work a mine, do not go so
low that the ore cannot be run from the
tunnel directly into a mill on the
breaker floor, from which the ore
would descend by gravity through the
different processes until lt passes out
of the mill, says the Mining ond Scientific press...U there ls a heavy fall ln
tho canyon or gulch below the proposed
tunnel site, the tunnel may be started
lower and the mill may be built some
distance down the gulch in order that
the ore may be trammed Into the top of
the mill.

stronger with depth. The outlook for
the property grows brighter every day.
The Palo Alto tunnel ls being driven

High grade ore Is still the story that

change that ia worthy of record from

work and everything ls working satisfactorily.
The record ef development work for
May is most gratifying. The Increase
over April Is about 600 feet. This will
come as a surprise to many, as lt was
generally conceded that the total would
be considerably leap, owing to the closing down of numerous properties.
While lt is true that there was a ma-
t'rlal falling off in many claims and
some were not worked at all, the great
mines of the camp—the Republic and
Mountain Lion—nearly doubled their
April record. The Republic has 865
feet to IU credit and the Mountain Lion 413 feet. The total for the month
foots up 4,088 feet, or nearly four-flfthB

were enjoying a pleasure ride in the steamer Catamaran on Uie river were precipitated into the water by tlio overturning

refused, as the city's population is increasing loo rapidly. The leading native*,
about the island, including active insurgent leaders, ask pei-.nis.siou to send their
-.-lilies to Manila, as it is considered the
only pluce of personal security."
The conclusions drawn by the war department officials concerning the condition in the Philippines, given in the dispatch of General Otis, are that the insurgents are little more than a marauding
band which will continually decrease when
the men find there is life and liberty under American government. The people
who are coming into the American line
asking protection ure considered like those
who sought protection in the forts during
thc early slagcs of American development

Nothing is said as to the intention of
Otis to continue active hostilities, but
this matter is left wholly to his discretion
and he will no doubt fight or rest as the
circumstances dcteimine.

In the mines of British Columbia
are hundreds of American citizens,
native born or naturalized, many of
these latter being born Canadians
This fact was shown in a striking
manner during the last Provincial
election, the smallness of the vote in
comparison with the number of workmen, being surprising. In thn natural
course of events, these alien workmen
would never bave become citizens of
Canada, no matter how long their
residence here. While these men were
receiving fair treatment and good
government, they were content to
leave tbe franchise to others. Now,
their votes are needed by tho party
who has legislated for them in the
Eight Hour measure, having made by
this legislation, enemies of the capitalists and their class. In justice to the
government that has placed its political
life in the hands of tho working class.
every man. who is in sympathy with
their actions, should see that his name
is found on the next list of voters for
the Province. If an alien, he should
become a citizen if possible; if n
British subject, he should not rest unashamed until he receives the franchise

Tbe Nelson Miner grows hysterical
over the resolution passed by our lo-
r-al Union last Saturday, a copy of
which will be found in another column.
It propones to imprison the passers at
once. Most of thi" outburst can be
traced to the fact that the Miner has
made itself obnoxious to the Unions,
who have not hesitated in saying so.
If the Miner would confine itself to
highly interesting fish stories and
graphic descriptions of thunderstorms,
it would be doing better service for
itself and for the community.
PBSse.1 Ily The Silverton Bllnsrs' Unl-i.,
Jons   10th,  isoo.
Whereas the wonderful advance of
invention has Increased and is increasing the productivity of labor to that
point where laborers are being rapidly
displace*! by machinery and larger
number- are thus yearly forced to idleness and competition for places to work,
thoreby bringing about a condition that
tends to tbe reduction of wages:
And whereas, if the wage system and
tho system of private ownership shall
continue along with the advance of
invention it is plain to be seen tbat the
condition of wage-workers must grow
rapidly worse unless arbitrarily altered,
Therefore, though we favor .och
political action as shall aa soon as
possible abolish said systems and
substitute thereto* asystem based on tbe
rights and duties of men.
Resolved, that wbilo struggling for the
Co-oyerativo Commonwealth and the
eit.blisbmeut of ju**tico and equality
among mon we favor, for temporary
relief, the reduction of hours of labor as
our best defensive weapon.
And whereas tbe B. C. parliament, at
its last session enacted a law creating an
Eight Hour working-day for underground
miners, which law, it is a»sorted by the
Silver-Lead Mine Owners' Association of
B. 0. and others, was unsought and
iimlesired by us:
Therefore 1* it resolved by the Silver-
ton Miners'Union No. 71, W. F. M..
ihat the contrary Is true; that we favor
the law and its enforcement and that we
shall seek such farther reduction of hours
ns shall make a demand for the daily
labor of every man willing to wo.k,
und n3 shall, bv creating inch increased
demand f ■! labor have a Undo uy ti>
increase ffWjes.
Aud It.solved. That we will support
with our voles the govern ment enmliii*.'
and enforcing thi.s law and ml-Ii othei
laws u tend to restore to labor ita jus'
Resolved, That it i« an improvement
of our coudition ihat we are Reeking*;
that wo do not feel tilled u o i to
inantain Ihat as iniirh woik can be done
in a few as in man.' hours or that it is
right for us lo continue doing as much
work as heretofore in order that we
may justly demand the same pay. We
assert that we li ivj time too much w irk
for the money, that we wero not getting
ten hours' pay for ten hours' work rand
we deny that we art* asking "ten hours'
nay for eight hours' work."
And whereas it is wise for us to vigorously use e\ery resource at our command
in order to ipeedily effect the ends we
are seekinu.
Resolved, That those who oppose us
are our enemies and that those who aid
us are our friends, and that we will treat
I hem accordingly.
Resolved, That we will not love onr
enemies, that we will not "turn the other
cheek;" that we believe that Retaliation
is Right,
And Therefore Be it Resolved That we
denounce as unworthy of our patronage
such parers as the Spokesman-Review of
Spokane, the Miser of Nelson, the Mining Record of Vancouver, and all others
that, like them, delight in special sophistical and parasitical pleading for those
whs despoil ns and snpport them from a
small portion of the spoils.
And to tbe business man, the merchants and hotel men; to the professional
men, the lawyers, doctors and preachers,
all of whom, at periods of intenser struggles between employer and employee,
usually affiliate with tbe former and deplore tbe agitation that discourages investment—to vou we have this to say:
We know tbat tbe rich would become
richer if we would consent to give them
a larger lake-off. But not only is a just
er and wider distribution of wealth in
our interest, it is in tho interest of the
State or country, and we are therefore
your best citizens. We seek to "encourage" men to hope for the largest possible
share of what they produce and are entitled to. You ask us to "encourage"
capital to come in, by promising to give
it rich rewards. You ask us to "encourage" men with a hundred thousand
dollars to see that thev can here increase
it to a million. But we deny that it is
desi/able to have any man in possession
nt a million, and maintain that we right
fully refuse to aid you in encouraging
capitalists to come here with such greedy
hopes, The higher wages and fewer
hours that we favor would fill this country with the most intelligent, effective
and happiest workmen of the world, a
citizenship to be proud of. The dollar a
day laborers tbat would most encourage
the capitalist would drive every self-
respecting citizen out of the country, nnd
Iene only cabins here for houses, while
palaces would be built in Spokane, Butte,
Salt Lake and London. And we say to
you business and profession*'1 men that,
we propose to "encourage" business ai d
I ro'essional men who do not give aid and
comfort to our enemies.
Resolved, That we do not consider
ourselves any hotter than the minors if
the Coenr d'Alenes. Outrageous and
arrogant wrongs have ever provoked and
should provoke violence. The history of
no country needs to be closely searched
to find records af violent resistance to
tyrants. Good citizeiiB of America disguised as Indians, threw overboard the
sacred property of 're r* pitalist on the
