Forks last week with the good news that
his company would reopen their properties at ontie.    This action was decided op
presumably owing to' the   fact that   the
employee^Jiad:decider] to return to work
on a lower scale   of wages, the  same   as
now prevails at R rssland and   Butte' and
elsewhere.    This voluntary action on the
part of the men to return   to work   at a
reduced wage is a wise one under the cir
curnstances and will prevent  a  tie-up  of

Japanese agency to supply men able
to do all kinds of work   about   his
collieries.     Tbe   Orientals,   as   we
have already pointed out,   were  to

part of the undertaking that   in.the
event of a'strike ihey should   coi -

the  Wellington   Colliery Company
been able to obtain enough  Japanese miners,   mine-laborers, carpenters,   and   machinists,   they   would

a reduction of Wages all along   the

trouble which'might almost besiid.
to be in process of preparation, the
ominous clause in the  contract   by
which the company binds  itself to

workers in case of a   strike clearly
tells.    Fortunately for the collieries
of Vancouver   Island   the   scheme
fell through as it was  found impossible to secure more than forty Jap-'

London appeal to the English people.
The paper is non political and its sole aim
is to please and to inform. Price ten
