Millinery  Tuesday was an off-day at  the  mines of the Rossland   Camp   to  allow the men an opportunity to  discuss the question of a   reduction in wages and a return to   the  scale of wages in   force on   July  1st last.The management had intimated to the men   that   unless  some such arrangement could be  come to, the mines could not continue operations   with   the   low  price of copper.   .The men decided in the afterneon by a referendum vote on a resolution  proposed in the meeting of the Union,  to accept the   July  scale.    This  means that shovellers get $3 a day  and machine men $3,75 a day and  not $2.75 and $3.50 as at first published in the Nelson .and   Rossland papers.    Prior to   July   1st,  the advance to those two  classes  of workmen were   made   by   the  management and still hold.    The  reduction thus   amounts   to   two  bits a day for these men.  The voting lasted from. 2 to 6  p.m. and the result was announced about 7-30 on Tuesday evening.  Undoubtedly a difference of opinion will exist among the men  here as to the wisdom of the men  at Rossland taking this step  without a definite proposition  from the company. It should at  least mean for the men there that  when condition's have ' bettered-  and the mines are able to pay a  higher wage, they should surely  have the sympathy and assistance  of the general public with them  in asking for it. The" action  of the merchants of the town as  reported below, seems to be another step in the way of cooperation and comity which if carried  out every,where would result in  an Utopian community.  were on the program and practically every person deseed through  to the last which came at about  three o'clock Everything was  splendidly arranged and the gentlemen who had charge of the affair deserved and received the  congratulations of tke guests,, in  the great success of their effort to  make the dark night bright. It  is generally .hoped that these  dances may be held frequently  through the whiter months.  fP  C.

While we are at pre-  Mayor Buuting, Alderman De-  rosiers, Sutherland and Nelson  answered the roll call at Monday  evening's meeting of the City  Fathers.  A communication from the  Council of Phoenix asking the  co-operation of-this city in the  buildiug of an isolation hospital,  to  be  located between the ��two  cities, was received.    As  Green-  .... i      ���  wood already has an isolation  hospital north of tbecity on the  cemetery ranch, the clerk was instructed to reply giving this information and expressing at the  same time the sympathy of the  council with all efforts to prevent  the spread of this disease.  The recommendation of the  Grand Jury's recent presentment  that a hydrant should be established near the Sisters' hospital  to provide fuller rfire protection  came up for consideration on the  reception of this document. The,  Mayor recommended that the  hydrant be placed at the corner of  Kimberley avenui���-���and- -Wood  streets, where it' was most convenient to tap tha 4-inch main.  A two-inch pipe on Church street  will also afford protection in case  of fire.- On motion of Aldermen  Nelson and Derosiers the recommendation was adopted.  It was decided to make the  hospital rate for water supply $10  per month���if paid before the  tenth of the month, S5.     -  C. J.

The ideal weather we are enjoying in the Boundary makes  life one long, luxurious dream.  The centre of attraction has  changed in Greenwood this last  tsvo weeks from the price of copper to the supply of broad-axes.

Copper Co. continued, in operation  until 4 o'clock on Tuesday afternoon of this week. There are at  present oaly a few men working  about the smelter draining the  jackets and cleaning up.  The prospects for the couutry,  however, seems to be brightening  rather thnn the reverse. The  tie camps are affording work for  a larger number of men than was  expected. It is idle, perhaps, to  suppose that the payroll thus  rolled up will amount.to anything  like the money put in circulation  by the mining companies. But  men needing work will be able to  obtain it for the time being and  it is hoped that the general improvement of the situation indicated by the easier money con-  tions this week 4n the United  States will continue and bring  about an early re-opening of the  mining industry.  President Colgate Hoyt, of the  British Columbia Copper Company interviewed last 'Friday"]_in  j New York, after 'the quarterly  meeting of the directors of the  Company stated that no action  had been taken in the matter of  dividends.  While the mines aud smelter  were closed down as they are, at  present, practically throug-hout  Canada-, dividends could not be  considered. It \va-_j, not likely  that there would-be',-any further  disbursement until the copper situation bad cleared, he said.

THE LIBERAL SPIRIT.  "Look to your traditions" was  the advice given the Young Liberals of Ontario, Y>y John Lewis  during the tew weeks he occupied  the position of Editor-in-Chief of  the Toronto Globe- And it was  good advice. It is the tradition  of the party that makes the lead  for its progress���that really de-  ermines its present spirit.  In Saskatoon, the other night,  Hon. Alphonse Turgeon, the recently elected Attorney-General  for Saskatchewan had the sam��s  message. It is the spirit of Liberalism which has been ever in  evidence creating a demand for  progressive legislation. It ia  Liberalism to protest against the  encroachment of private rights,  to resist the power of vested interests and to staud always for  the freeing of the people from  their power. The problems for  the statesmen of today are just  .-!- truly of the kind that requires  tbir..,���.: -;..��� ������-_!ities as ever the  Thv: ",..-;-";j!e of tiie country  its very inherent nature, .cannot  do these things. It has ever been  the party of protection!���higk n.%  Haman's gallows ; protection not  ��nly against foreign imports but  in behalf of every vested interest  and against the independent class  of workers outside these interests.  It is sometimes now a party of  fair promises but where Mr. Borden in British Columbia promises,  Mr. Foster  in  Ontario denies.  The legislative   machine does  not   move   fast in this   country.  As a matter of fact it does not do  so in any country.    For instance,  it   was seven   centuries   ago   in  England that the first  franchise  ���the first gift of public liberties  was wrung from King John.    In  England there  is still  room  for  the improvement of the franchise.  The wheels of   the   gods  move  slowly but they grind exceeding  sure and the   principles,   of   the  liberty of the people and of   individual as against corporate interest which are the  principles   ��f  Liberalism, are   coming   further  along every day.  This is what the Liberal party  meant to William Lyon Macken-  zie^to George^Brown and-to^Ales-  ander Mackenzie and this is the  very spirit which-moulds every  act of the Laurier administration  today.  ���all these and the numberless  measures that intelligent working  men have advocated and secured,  are nothing and according to the  speaker do not help the working-  man at all.  One fa.un.drcd years ago,in England,which was the most enlightened country in the world at that  time, was the era of the Corn  Laws. It is only 75 years ago  that, a Labour Commission under Lord Ashley uneaTthed the  horrible details of the working  methods in the coal mines of England and carried a bill which  forbade boysunder.ten and women from working underground.  Aad as a suggestion of the improvement that followed we (juote  the following : "As the work  which these had done, mainly in  de��d acting as beasts of burden  and dragging trucks laden with  coal through low galleries, in  which the shortest could not  stand upright, had now to be  done in some other way, the miners improved the galleries, making them a more reasonable size.  In 1850, a further act, limited the  working day for all young persons  and women from 6 a.m. to 6  p.m."  It is undoubtedly true that the  condition of affairs���thedistribut  ion of wealth, the organization of  the social world, can be itnproVed.  It is up to every man to consider  means and methods of improvement. But surely it is not to be  found in an effort to distrass the  people, based upon statements  that have not foundation in fact.  $B8$��ffiRBlB8fflfflB&3ffl8&B88l church is carrying  an   advertise-  y'e Guarar  to cure your cough or cold  No "ifs" or "bvits" ���just a  straight stat ement-Shiloh's  Cure will cure your cough  or cold and do it quicker  t han anything you  ever tried, or your druggist  will return the purchase  price.

The conservative convention  held in Vanconver on Friday aud  Saturday of last week passed off  very quietly. A number of complacent self-congratulatory' resolutions have been given to the  the press which was excluded  from the convention. There is  however nothing new in the program outlined in the 12 para-  graj hs as issued. No local de'e-  gates were in attendance at the  convention.

Before reaching Ashcroft, B.C., on Tuesday  night the radiant bulbs of the  electric light had never shed  light across his path. The man  is 76 years old and is now speeding across the ocaan on a great  Liner'to the home in Scotland  that he left in 1S52. He came to  British Columbia crossing the  Isthmus of Panama in June,lS59  and following then first to San  Francisco and on up the coast to  Victoria where he wintered. Iu  the following February he followed the Fraser River up to Lyttou  and for two years devoted his time  to mining between that place  and Lillooet. The tales of the  Cariboo attracted him and he  went there where he has rained  for forty years with varied success. His name is James Siev-  right. The story is told in the  Ashcroft Journal.

The gentleman in question has our sincere  good-will in any effort to better  'conditions for the laborer, provided that his effort is, in our judgement, wisely directed. But the  statement made as above was certainly surprising. It is an utter  condemnation of the entire Trade-  Union movement which'has-sprung  up almost entirely within that  time. It is an assertion that the  effort the unions have made to  gain control of a certain amount  of the recources upon which their  members can afford to wait in the  struggle with capital, has been  perfectly futile.

It appears that the light b'e-  tween the C.P.R. and the Great  Northern will not be held up for  financial reasons. The latest  proposition is the construction of  two lines to cover the lerriiorv  immediately south of the Boundary District iu the State of  Washington and thence to 'the  Coast. One proposed line is from  Spokane through Yakima Valley,  across the Cascade Mountains to  Taconia. Surveyors are at work i ia  on the Sumas line and the C.PR  have secured an option on tide-  land terminals at Tacoma adjoin  ing those of the Chicago,Milwaukee and St- Paul road.  Owing to the protest -of the  Winnipeg Board of Trade against "^  the discrimination shown iu the  new C.P.R. Freight TarrifF and  in consideration of tho fact thai:  the whole mat tor. will be brought  before the Railway Commission,  it has b��eu'decided to wiihold its  enforcement for the pro_;cvnt.  Winnipeg merchants claim that  through rates to the Coast charged all Kootenay and. Boundary  points tend to.build up the coast  cities at the expense of Winnipeg.  The speedy and effective justice that can be obtained by referring these matters to the Railway Commission is a splendid' $*  justification of the wisdom of tin:  Laurier Government hi dealing  with the difficult probkm of con^  trolling the railroads. ���  d  i!  ** ���  v ���>  1  ���:���-:-  tf.  *X  u  u  '..'*���**������_������**'"-_.**��*  li <  h) J  j  I '  I I  fa  ^  t  b2��JA  r a  ti'iVi k:y'A':^f     V'-j,--..j      :���''���'���:���'.__.

Sl5,2ll,S54 of this  amount were in use in the form  of call loans on the Stock Market  where large and quick profits are  realized by the banks on a safe investment. While contracting  these loans, the banks suffered a  loss of over $6,092,000 foreign deposits. The withdrawal how-  ever has greatly helped the Cah-  adian wheat  situation. FurJiher  illustration of the assistance given tbe grain movemeut is found  in the expansion of the aote circulation by $4.S34,(JS3, the circulation at the end of October being  about; half a million greater than  it was at the same period one  year age.   ,  Canadians have every reason to  be proud of a banking system that  saves us from the restless panics  seen every now and then across  the line.  ���\ HO ?AY U2JLSSS CUKSD |  i .<���'-������     :|  U Wh��a Yoa E����& a Spt> U  W Ciallsi, C��tS_a-3lt ��a�� ��I   ik!
