Another mining deal of prominence
has been put through in this section,
making the liftli since the opening nf
tho new year. The property to
change hands this time is the well
known Republic group, situated on
Erin mountain, and two miles from
town. Dave Sutherland and Tom
Montgomery were the owners, having
held the claims for five years.   Em
braced in the group are the Republic,
American Eagle, Bonanza and Bell
claims.
Early last week C. Dempster, of
Rossland, visited tho property, having been prevailed On by W. Harris.
A thorough inspection was made and
the deal closed. It waa for cash and
amounts to several thousand dollars,
though t.ho exact consideration is
held private. Work will be com
menced on thc property as early as
possible in the spring and continued
throughout the summer.
The Republic lias been before the
public ever since its staking, by reason of its close proximity to town and
the high grade of its ore.    There are

Two proviucial bye-elections will
.take place next week, to fill the va
cancies existing in Nanaimo and
Vancouver. Nominations tako place
on Monday and tho olections next
,-dfsy. In Nanaimo a Labor candidate
is sure of election to succeed Ralph
,Sfnlth, whilo Vancouver may be
counted in the same column,
:.We have our first apology to offer,
aud It .Is all on account of our ' 'in-
sides." Something has gone wrong
with the works and they haven't
shown up, hence the attenuated ap
•pearance of this issue. It ia a bum-
looking rag, we admit; but it would
^bo bummer were it twice as bum.
My, what those fellows on the big
i-Nelson dailies have to be thankful
;forl 	
^Ln element of moro than ordinary
interest will enter into the opening
•aeremomes of the legislature at Vic
4torla next Thursday, by the attend
"ance ofthe B.C. members of the various contingents of Canadian troops
.sent to South Africa. The govern
mentis paying tbe expenses of all
the khaki-clad boys, who are to act
as the guard of honor. It is a com
mendable idea.
A mighty struggle is going on between the Great Northern and Cana-
1 tfian Pacific railways over the Crow's
Nest coal deposits.   The lifj of the
B. C. smelting industry—and, practi
•oally, that of mining itself-^depends
'-upon the guarding of these importstnt
natural resources for the Canadians.
X)ur governments should encourage
borne industries and not build up the
trade of a foreign country.   B. C.
ought to imitate Ontario and conserve
to her own peoplo the great wealth
wherewith nature has endowed her,
rbut not to the fostering of monopoly.
Robert McPherson Is tho Labor
candidate in the provincial bye
•election in Vancouver, made neces
aary by the resignation of James
Garden. McPherson has subscribed
to the Martin platform and the oppo
"sition will accordingly give him  its
support.   There is no doubt of Mc*
' Pherson's election, but it is a pity he
could not have been prevailed on tu
aland out prominently as a Labor
advocate without fusion with another
party.   Joe Martin's predilections for
i the Labor cause are recognized, but
there is too much taint of old party
sbmi about him and his followers. As
was proven in thu Foley election in
this constituency, the workingman
has done with the old order of things.
All British subjects throughout the
jprovinco will, with tho members of
the Miners' Union, deeply appreciate
■the resolution printed in another col-
,umn, and issued from the hall ofthe
Randsburg Miners' Union, No. 41, of
.Kandsburg, Cal.   True and heartfelt
'sympathy Is expressed with the B.C.
Unions for the loss of our beloved
■Queen, Victoria,   demonstrating   a
noble principle perineal ing the min-
';*ers'  organization.    To  many   this
.friendly testimony to the loyalty of
-ihe Unions will come ns a surprise,
as tho popular liclief in certain cir-
-sales has been quite to the contary.
"Time, however, is a great leveler of
prejudice, and soon It will become an
accepted fact that Unionism in this
yprovince, particularly where it concerns the miners,  is indicative   of
every right principle that goes to
"inakc up a  loyal, progressive and
united people.   Ever since thc fateful
Jabor struggle of two years ago, public opinion regarding the Unions has
'•undergone a great change, and sus
picions and doubts have been proven
'unwarranted.   Unionism means loyalty and advancement,   but never
.anarchy and riot.   The Randsburg
' miners realize this, hence their condolences to fellow members of a foreign clime in an hour of national sorrow. ,

a telegram received from headquarters, creating somewhat of a surprise.
Various wild rumors were soon afloat
regarding the shut down, many attributing It to tho largo debts con
tracted by the company, which arc
alleged to bo close to $20,000. Thc
men have always had their wages
paid, but the debt represents supplies, contracted mainly because of
thejwagon road. However, those on

only temporary, pending the final

of the Kilo and Chapleau groups,.
