RENDELL  FURNISHINGS  AT THE EMMA MINE  Copper Company  Officials  and Rossland Capitalists Confer.  WILL    MAKE    SURVEYS  Spokane Engineer to Do the Work���  Supt. Johnson Keeps Things  Running Smoothly  DRY GOODS  J. 13. McAllister and F. Keffer of the  B.C. Copper Co. and Edwin Jusson,  raining engineer of Spokane, visired  the Emma mine last Tuesday afternoon and thoroughly inspected the  property. Everything- was found to  be in a most satisfactory condition.  Ore is being taken out of the drift at  the rate of about 70 tons per day. The  drift is about 14 feet wide, but as only  part of the ore has been taken out it  will be made considerably wider as  operations proceed. Mr. Jusson carefully examined both shaft and drift  with a view to making a new survey  of the mine. Anew electrically driven  compressor has been ordered and will  be installed immediately upon its arrival. It is evidently the purpose of  the company to make all improvements that may be necessary and to  push the work with the vigorous enterprise characteristic of all their un'  dertakings.  Messrs. Smith Curtis and J. S. Fra  ser of Rossland met the B. C. Copper  Co. officiats at the Emma and spent  the greater part of the afternoon inspecting tl-e Oro Denoro and other  properties. The party returned to the  city.in the evening and Messrs. Curtis/  Fraser ind Jusson stoped at *"thev Im-  perial77  Mr. Johnson, the superintendent,  informed a : Times representative that  while he experienced no great difficulty  in securing men yet there ia always a  demand for good miners.  . There is some complaint amoug the  miners about the hotel accommodation  provided in Summit camp. One of  the men who had just been working a  week threatened to leave the camp  unless the hotels treated their boarders  better. He complained -that after paying one dollar a day for his board he  had to sleep in a cabin without heat of  any kind, supply his own-blankets and  pa^four dollars^, month rent into the  bargain. Mr. Johnson, howeveFstepped  into the breach and agreed ;to find him  belter quarters, so the man went back  to work. Speaking of the proposed  eight-hour law, Mr. Johnson expressed  himself as opposed to it. /'A good  man," he said, "can do a shift's work  in eight hours and that is sufficient,  but a poor man can -anot, though >he  demands the same wages." He be  lieved the law would be a protection  only to the incompetent man and not  to the miner .with ability to do his  work properly.  the honor would have been  great indeed.

After the game was over  the visiting team was entertained to  supper at the Pacific hotel. Some days  before the contest it was feared that it  would be a financial failure but fortunately the receipts were sufficient to  cover all expenses and leave a comfortable surplus. J. D. McCreath was  umpire.  RETURNS FROM VICTORIA  HOCKEY.  Rossland Champions Defeat Boundary  7.  ���' Boys* ,  The hockey match played-last Friday  night between the Boundary team and  the Rossland champions was a good  exhibition of hockey. The ice. was  rather heavy but this did not materially affect the playing and the game  was speedy and exciting from start to  finish. It was ilsoa clean game, free  from any of the incidents that sometimes make a hockey rink look more  like a pitched bittle ground than the  arena of national sport, o It! was the  sort of game thit develops mutual respect between the opponents and  pleases the audience which has paid  good money to enjoy an hour's entertainment.  The score, 5 to 6, does not read as  Greenwood and vicinity naturally desired, but the rssult was not altogether  unexpected by those most familiar  with the merits of both teams. It is  well known that the champions are  better trained and more experienced  than their oppenents were and if the  Boundary amateurs bad won from the  more   or less professional chj.mp.ous  Local Man Thinks Power Bill Will  Pass���House Favorable.  J. E. McAllister, manager of the B.  C. Copper Co., has returned from Victoria, where he was called to give evidence before the private bills committee of the provincial legislature in  the consideration of the Boundary  power question. When seen by the  Times, Mr. McAllister/was very hopeful Ihat the amendment to the West  Kootenay Power and i/ight company's  charter would pass the house. " If it  it ever gets on the floor of the house,''  he said, "it's a sure thing. The only  danger lies in its treatment by the  committee. The committee is pretty  level-headsd and unless they get mixed  and confused, they are pretty sure to  pass the amendment; and then it is  pretty clear; sailing." Mr. McAllister  found the members of the house pretty  fully alive to the fact that the Boundary. needs more power and that steps  shbuld-be!-t&.k'en-^to 7make-provision.for;  the needs of thedistrict. V'���������'���'������ '"   7 7 7  Speaking of; the eight-hour law, Mr.  McAllister did. not think it had any  chance of passing. It was going too  far for the government to legislate foi  due particular class of workmen.  The numbers were rendered with the  charnj ^ud ease of a master player and  lowers of good music enjoyed a treat of  exceptionally fine character. The accompanist, Miss Rice, deserves much  praise for her contributions to the pro-  errajn.  The selections all through were  clasical and their tendering required  skill aud training of a high order.  The audience was rather small and  some of those present who were not interested themselves spent the most of  the evening laughing and talking* to  the great annoyance of others.  WANTS INFORMATION  THE CITY COUNCIL.  Regular Meeting Held and Business  7 Transacted-  Council met last Monday night and  transacted the usual routine of busi-  The license bylaw was discussed  briefly but no definite conclusion waa  reached. Alderman Nelson, who is  fathering the proposed measure to re-  "duW"tH!e^Sumber^6f"licensesHo^thir-  teen, will make further investigations  and report at som*. future meeting.  The January accounts included an  item for hospital Rfees and medical attendance for Mrs. C. Judkins. -The  woman's son, who is running a ranch,  informed the city clerk that he would  pay the account and this was reported  to the council and accepted.  The-resignation of A. Currie, driver  and constable, was accepted and J.  Mulhern was appointed his successor  at a salary of $90 per month.  The waterworks system came up for  discussion and while no conclusion was.  reached it is fell that some important  steps will be taken during the year. It  is expected that provision will be made  for the building of a dam across Providence creek and a system of water  mains constructed to supply the north  end and connect ��with the Kimberly  avenue main. The subject will again  come up for further consideration  later on.  CITY  ACCOTINTSj  The following^accounts were passed  and ordered paid : Membership fee to  Union of Canadian Municipalities,  SIO.OO; Canadian Rubber Co., S40.45;  E. Ward, Sl.OO; D. A.

Correspondent in the East Asks Some  Questions.  The following letter has been re-  from a postmaster in Eastern Canada.  The correspondent is asking for information about some one in whom he  is interested. The letter is interesting  because of its grammatical construction, or misconstruction. After some,  effort it was deciphered to read:  My Dear F_*u.o\v : Be good enough  to teil me immediately these informations.   Is M living in your place ?  Do you know her Yery well ?

The violin concert given in the Auditorium by Maximilian Dick, under  the auspices of the Roman Catholic  church,  was one of   excellent   merit.  Midway. Feb. 22.���It has been announced that a celebration will be held  here on May 24. The people are beginning to feel prosperous and think  the geneial prosperity of the camp  should be celebrated in a proper manner and it is generally agreed that  Empire Day will be the most suitable  time for such. Steps will be taken to  raise a respectable sum of money to  distribute in-prises-in-the-various-com--  petitions. Efforts will be made to  make the event the best in the history  of the Boundary.  The B. C. claim, situated west of  here, has proven rich in gold and silver, a recent assay gave.$l,7Q0 in gold  and $278 in silver. Thh ledge varies  in width from 18 inches to 4 feet, and  has been traced for 3,000 feet. The  claim-gives promise of becoming a  valuable; property and the owners, D,  M. Greaves and James Atwood, both  of Midway, are naturally well pleased  with their prospects.  It is reported on what appears to be  reliable authority, that the C. P. R.  will shortly commence the construction  of a bridge across Kettle river about  two miles west of Midway, -and to  which point grading and track laying  have been completed.  The Skylark Development company,  composed of Phoenix people, are doing  very satisfactory work. Over 1,000  feet of sinking, raising, dtifting and  crosscutting was done on the property.  The mine is now developed to the 150-  foot level, with long drifts both north  and south at this and the 75-foot level.  Shipments have been maintained  steadily throughout the year, a total of  535 dry tons of ore having been shipped  tothe Granby and Nelson smelters;  the second class is going to the former.  The values run from $50. to $125 per  ton, mostly silver and gold.  Development work at the Helen aud  the Elkhorn is progressing in a most  satisfactory manner. In the former  the work is being pushed in the drift  at the 200-foot level.  A    ,1  They made their getaway. Another  startling report���concluded on page 6. 1.

VESTED   INTERESTS   AND  THE POWER QUESTION.  being"  magfazine,  The Week, a paper published in . Victoria, which styles  itself "A Provincial Review  and - Magazine," but which  falls very, far short of  either a review or a  deals extensivel}--, in last Saturday's , issue; with the Boundary  power question.: On * the front  page there  appears  a  g-roup  of  .excellent views, of the Cascade  Power company's plant. This is  very good, aud no one fair minded  or .otherwise, but would . find it  pleasing- to see scenes of natural  beau*"}- and of commercial enterprise so well reproduced. The  good effect of a fine picture is  often spoiled, however,-. .7 by 7 a  hideous frame, and the good effect  of an illustration is often spoiled  by an unsuitable and distasteful  title, and it is disgustingly true  in this case. 7 At; the top of the  pictures is the coarse title line :  "The Half Million Dollar Investment the West Kootenay'Hog-  is Trying- to Root Out."  7 In, its editorial . columns The  Week treats the matter with more  dignity but with no greater respect io the power company-which  is seeking to enlarge its scope of  territory, for it is called a.."buccaneer-.seeking legislative sanction for its maraudings." This  is The Week's view of the case :  "It is one of the first duties of  a government to foster and encourage the . development of the  country under its jurisdiction. It  is as much a duty to conserve and  protect industries already established according to law as to.encourage the creation of new ones.  Failure  to  observe   this  obliga-  =tion"will"soon~checlc'"progress"by  destroying confidence. Capital  is of all things the most sensitive, difficult to attain, easy to  repel. Viewed in this aspect, the  duty of the provincial government in the matter of the private  bill of the West Kootenay Power  and Light company would appear  to be plain. Whatever the claims  of the Boundary district and the  Cascade company may be. they  are paramount as against those  of the West Kootenay Power and  Light company, since that company has at present no legal footing in the district, and comes  into court in the guise of a buccaneer seeking  legislative  saiic-  No one  the rights of vested interests are  recognized to a proper extent, the  right of those interests to stand  in the way of commercial development is not conceded for one  moment.  The case is simply this, the  mines and smelters of the Boundary district want more power and  the company now operating in  the district cannot supply the demand. This arises partly from  the fact that the water supply of  the Kettle river is insufficient at  times to generate enough power  to meet the increasing rt/*'|uire-  ���ments of the company's customers. It is also stated there are  other difficulties ��� of another na-  ture, almost insurmountable, that'  stand iu the way.  It is pointed out by The Week  that an investment of $500,000  has been made and that this  should be protected. True, capital , must be protected. But it  must be remembered that in the  miues and smelters hereabout  there are several half million'dollars invested, likewise looking  for protection. It must also be  remembered that more ;half million dollar investments stand  ready, to be made as soon as more  power can be secured at reason-  rates. Let it be further remembered that the future progress of  a city and of a district, representing several more half million dollar, investments, is largely at  stake, and remember also that  while it is clearly the duty of-a.  government to protect vested interests it is not the duty of a government to create and protect a  monopoly, that is incompetent,  unprogressive and which threa-  ens to retard the whole progress  of a district described by a circle  one hundred miles'in diameter.  It has-been advocated that an arrangement be made by which the  present company secure power  from its neighbor and distribute  the increased supply to its customers. This has: been declared  impossible under the present circumstances of the operating company and to saA- the least itwould  look like the lamb, and the lion  lying, dowu'Hogether . and being  good friends. Whatever settlement is arrived, at there-is one  duty and a great opportunity that  lies before the government. Both  companies interested are depending upon the government:���the  people���for their privileges to do  -busines_r=^^Whatever=^privileges  -the   right   to   use  want more power  public control.  and  we  want  CLEAN YOUR  SIDEWALKS.  mmmwmwmmmwwmmwwmd  Have you  got your   sidewalks  cleaned ?    At  this  season of the  year when sun and rain are turning  the  snow  and ice into slush  and water every effort  should be  made to keep the sidewalks clean  and passable.    The condition of  the sidewalk  in front of a house  reflects to some extent the character of the people residing within.  Careful . householders    will   not  neglect to clean their sidewalks.  With  householders it is a matter  of individual care   and   neatness.  The problem really begins, however, where'the lots  are  vacant  or the  houses unoccupied,    If it  is the law that property   owners  shall  clean  the sidewalks,   who  shall do it when  the owners are  are thousands of miles awaj ? If  the  property  owners shall clean  the   sidewalks   the   city   should  clean the street crossings and the  present condition of some of them  leads us to think it is about time  the city council took a shovel and  got to work.   The prob1 em might  be solved by the people cleaning  their  own   sidewalks  while  the  city hires a man for about a week  to clean the street crossings and  the   sidewalks   opposite    vacant  lots and buildings.

The Week may or  may not be  working lor  the interests of the  Cascade   Power   and   Light  Co.  The  Boundary  Creek  Times   is!  not  working  for either company I  but     it     is    working     for    the j  business    interests     of     Green-j  wood   and    vicinity    and    while I  waterfalls and streams, the right  to build power lines across the  country���are the free gift of the  people. It is fair surely that the  people should get something in  return, and that something should  be a control ol power rates. If  the West Kootenay Power and  Light company secure the right  to operate where they have never  operated before, the government  should secure the right to protect  the people against exorbitant  rates. Competition as a rule is  the people's best safeguard, but  what assurance will the public  have that the. two companies will  not arrange between themselves  that the prices shall be maintained on a certain basis whether  that basis be unjust or not ?

It is stated that through  the agency of Mr. Newby a syndicate  of Alberta capitalists is being formed  for the purpose of acquiring other  valuable locations up the North Fork.  The Glouster is a high grade gold-copper property and has beon developed  by tunnels and surface workings. It  lias one of the best showings in the  district,   the. ore assaying $50 per ton.  According to Robert Meredith the  terms of the proposed mine merger at  Rossland, Trail and Moyie are as follows : " The earnings of the scveraj  properties (hiring the past year on the  basis on which they are consolidated  amounts to about 16 per cent, and they  are taken in under the consolidation as  follows: St. Eugene, $2,333,300; Center Star, $1,555,500 ; ; Trail smelter,  5740,000 ; Rossland -Power company,  560,000, making the issued capital of  the Canadian Consolidated Mines Co.,  Ltd., about $4,700,000. We have been  so accustomed to the dollar share for  mining stocks that owners of these  securities seem to think that increasing the par value to $100 depreciates  their holdings but it appears to be that  SlOO shares, on- which dividends are  paid, will be, more in favor with the  investor and a more marketable commodity.  The annual report of the directors of  the LeRoi No 2 company submitted in  London ok January 15, to the share  holders at the annual general meating,  recommended llie payment of a dividend of three shillings per share out of  the net profit for the year ending fc-ep-  tember 30th last, making a total dividend for the year of three shillings per  share for _��25,290. The accounts show  a balance to the credit of profit and  loss account of ^29,810, after writing  off the sum of .��13,911 against mine  development and ,��3,924L as depreciation on' machinery and [plant, buildings, etc. There was brought forward  from the previous year the sum of  ,��28,690, and after paying- a final dividend for 1904 of 2 shillings fer share  there remained the sum of ,��16,900,  which with -the present balance of  j_'29,810, gives a total iof ��45,901 available for distribution j Out of this a  dividend of one shilling per 'Share was  paid on the 7th of October, absorbing  ,��6,300. The directors in their report  recommend a final distribution for 1905  of 3 shillings per share, leaving .��20,-  701 to be carried forward. Messrs,  Hill and Stewart report that during  the past year the development of the  mine has been vigarously pushed with  highly satisfactory results, 12,237 tons  were shipped to the snielter, and 10,678  tons to the concentrator. The mining  expenses for the year, including diamond drilling, show an expenditure of  $4.22 per ton as compared with S4.45  the previous year, ��� although the tonnage dealt with-has been less. The  company has taken advantage of an  opportunity that occurred to acquire  various claims in Rossland and district, but has relinquished the option  over the Vernon-Thompson group.  Mr. Couldryywho occupied the post of  mine manager during the years 1903-4,  has now returned to Rossland and  taken charge of the property. The directors again record their appreciation  of the services rendered by.the company's consulting engineers, Messrs.  Alex. Hill and Stewart, and of -the  ability and skillful management shown  by Ernest Levy, who was acting as  mine manager during the year under  review.

Hill and his associates is  viewed in various lights. The people  of Greenwood look forward to the road  coming into this city and believe it  would materially assist in the upbuilding of the of the whole district and  especially Greenwood. The Vancouver  Daily Province takes a "mixed" view  of the situation, as set forth in the following:  " Mr. James J. Hill, president of the  Great Northern railway, has, according to dispatches received yesterday,  perfected his arrangements for invading the Canadian wheat fields. A confidential agent, who is thoroughly  familiar with the railway magnate's  methods and aims, has been looking  over the Northwest for some months,  and as a result of his conclusions it  has been decided to build a road from  Havre on the trunk line of the Great  Northern, to Edmonton, by way of  Medicine Hat.  " The projected railway will be 420  miles long, and will ttaverse the most  fertile region of the new province of  Alberta. All that is required before  construction is begun is a charter from  the government, but this is a matter  that is not calculated to cost Mr. Hill  much either in time or money. His  previous acquaintance with Canadian  legislators has taught him that a matter of this kind is very easily arranged.  After.securing a monopoly,in the richest copper district of British Columbia  there wiil. be little, if any, opposition  to granting him: the privilege of com.  peting with other roads for the haulage ;;of the Canadian harvests. But  Mr. Hill has in view something besides the business of the farming  country,.;of the TWest. It ' is now  realized.'that the. Edmonton district  ancii'itne > region , running north into  Athabascais rich in mineral deposits,  ah<|; that great oil fields exist in that  parti of, 'the territories. Mr. Hill der  sires to share in the wealth which will  flo.wfrom these sources and there is  little doubt he will succeed in doing  so. It is a large programme, evidently,  which President Hill has formulated  for his company -in entering Canadian  territory, but it is not one which will  be regarded as beyond his ability to  execute. With the construction of his  projected roads from Havre to Edmonton, he vvill have eight branch lines  crossing the Canadian  border west of  Of -Every Description  Quickly and neatly ��  Executed.   �� �� ��  c  osier Painting  You cannot te expected to have faith in  Shiloh's Consumption Cure, the Lung  Tonic, as a cure for Colds, Coughs and all  diseases of the air passages, if you have  not tried it.

A fair  sprinkling of fine checks, especially  blue and green combinations, have  been chosen for spring suits.  Semi-fitting and loose coats, with  the exception of the Eaton, are again  preferred. This is easily explained by  the fact that tight-fitting garments  are not usually becoming to immature  figures, and furthermore are hard to fit.  PAY CASH.  If every merchant would do a cash  business, it would be a blessing to humanity. As a general rule the ir.'an  who can get credit abuses the privilege. If he had to pay cash he would  learn to economize and would finally  learn to live within his means. A  grocer claims he could do buisness for  cash on half the money he has now invested and could afford to sell his  goods cheaper. Not only do those who  pay have to pay for what'they consume  themselves, but they help make up the  loss for those who never pay. The  merchant mentioned says he could  save the price of one clerk, if he sold  for cash, as the extra help is required  to keep the books and look after the  collections.���Ex.  NOTES.  Flowers Will be used to a large extent in millineiy. A bunch of four  roses each rose a different tone, will be  very popular.  Japanese silks in general are in  ready request, as they will undoubtedly  be usedfor lining purposes, as well as  for general wear. - .7  "Colored waistcoats are as popular as  ever and bid fair to be even more so  this spring, even though predictions  have been to the contrary.  Some of the Japanese houses are  showing warp print Japanese silks in  modest, pompadour designs, and these  are meeting with great favor.  The popularity of the shirt waist suit  of wash goods means that there will  be a greater demand for wash petticoats. These are being shown in plain  and fancy ginghams, also in mercerized chambrays. Deep flounces are  good in these garments.  The Ascot tie, which was such a  popular form some years .ago" is again  coming to the fore. Delicate shades  rather thau more positive colors will  rule.  As far as handbags are concerned,  the carriage bags seem to lead the de-  mand. Some dealers report an increasing demand for leather-lined  bags.

Suitings of unobtrusive effect  are counted on as a stronger factor in  the retail selling than last year, but  the bulk of business will unquestionably be absorbed by plain goods.  Advance orders for cream mohairs  and serges have been so large as to  exhaust the visible supply. Iu all  lines the indications, from a fashion  standpoint, are in favor of white and  light shades. Light in, both colors  and weight is the slogan of fashion  for spring, and the demand in all  classes of dress goods follows the same  trend.  Batiste, albatross, challie, wool tat-  fcta and allied fabrics have had a very  successful season, and also henriettas,  which are employed for suits as well  as gowns for interior wear. Panamas  of all kinds are very well considered.  Chiffon broadcloths continue in excellent position ; they have been well  taken for spring, and manufacturers  are preparing for another successful  fall season. It is conceded by good-  authorities that there will be no change  next fall from the present condition  relative to lightweights and plain  goods, and while this continues, chiffon  broadcloths will remain in the lead in  high class dress materials.  Plain voiles and eclines have been  reinstated and have been a factor of  considerable   importance.

By his branch to  Kuskutiook'he has bottled up a 1-trge  and very rich section of the silver-lead  country, and with the aid of his short  line of road running from Kaslo to  Sandon he is trying to coerce the mine  owners into shipping their output to  American smelters.

In  the prairie country he will not find it  as easy to forestall or fclimin ate competition, but the business which will be  created in that hew region during the  next ten or fiftean years gives promise  of such magnitude that he can well  afford to enter the lists as a competitor  for a large portion of it. It is at least  a consoing thought that the Hill  branches of railway into the new  provinces will make the immigration  of American farmers to Canada much  easier than it is at present, and that  while some business may be diverted  to the United States as a consequence  of their existence, the Western States  of the Union will sc id many of their  best citizens tn the Dominion."

HART, MIDWAY BOUNDARY   OREEK   TIMES  ji   *_  ���is/  EIGHT HOURS A DAY  Workingmen Seek Government Protection.  SPEECHES PRO AND CON  Premier McBride Opposes tlie   Bill  but Local Member Supports It���  ' Fraser Wants It Turned Down  . There is now before the provincial  legislature a bill which proposes to  "regulate hours of labor in certain industries." Itisof special'interest to  Times readers in that it provides that  " No person shall be employed in or  about any smelter, sorting, hauling,  removing or smelting- ores or matte in  any stage of preparation, for a longer  period than eight hours in any twenty-  foiir hours."  . The bill includes peculiar features,  for it not only takes from the employer  the right to demand of his servant  more then eight hours work but it provides a penalty tor the employee who,  voluntarily or otherwise, labors more  than the specified eight hours. The  penalty clause reads':  ' _ Any owner, agent, or manag-er, or  anyone acting on their behalf, employing any workman or person in contravention ot.thisact, shall tie liable.to a  penalty not exceeding one hundred  dollars nor less than twenty dollars for  each workman or person 'so employed,  and any workman or person so work-  for a longer period than specified in  section 2 of this act, shall be liable to  a penalty not exceeding one hundred  dollars" hor less .than twenty dollars."  To say the least, the proposed bill is  aiTarbitrary one. It may be well to  protect labor;to"tn'eiextent of limiting  the hours of labor to eight, but to take  from the working man the right tf  labor more than eight hours, whether  he wants to or not, seems going a step  too far. It is very seriously questioned  if any parliament has the right to legislate for* any particular class more  than another. '  THE  DEBATE.  On the floor of the House some interesting speeches were made on the  subject, which are given in the Vancouver World:  In the debate upon the motion for  second -reading of-, the Davidson (Sloean) bill to limit the hours of employ,  ment in provincial smelters to eight  per day, Premier McBride asserted  that the bill was practically the same  as offered to the house last session and  defeated-upon the motion for second  reading. The debate last year had  gone to show that ltithe house insisted  upon forcing a. compulsory eight hour  day upon the smelter men, disastrous  results were likely to accrue. The  smelting   of    British   Columbia   ores  course in offering this legislation, he  being elected as a special guardian of  labor interests, but he could see no  way for endorsation of the measure at  the present time. It would be a serious  thing to pass any legislation which  might operate to hamper development  of the smelting industry and the consequent expansion of mining throughout the province. If the house by passing this bill took upon itself a responsibility of checking the influx of capital and the expansion of British Columbia's several extensive mineral  zones," it would be making in his  opinion a serious blunder. He therefore asked the house to vote with him  against the proposed second reading  of the bill.  MR.   BROWN.  Mr. Brown (Greenwood) thought that  that the bill of last year had been very  much modified and therefore he was  prepared to, support it, as he saw no  hardship likely to be involved. The  smelters were making good money, the  price of metals was never higher, and  the time seemed opportune for legislatively regulating the hours in consideration of the character and the  conditions of the employment. Indeed  the present seemed to him the psycho-  logicol moment to give effect to the  contents of such a bill.  ��� While not proposing to debate the  motion, the finance minister pointed  out having a copy of the last year bill  before him, thai the legislation pf last  session and the present bill were absolutely identical���line for line and word  for word. Las't year the principle of  the bill was negatived by 26 to 14, and  conditions remaining unchanged, he  could see no justification for a reversal  of the decision,  Opposition was also given by Mr.  Patterson (The Islands) who voted  against the bill last session and proposed to vote against it now, and for  the same reasons then actuating his  course. He would never, he said, by  any vote of his, debar any working  man from getting the fullest return  for hi3 labor, or from selling as much  of that labor as.he might care to. The  principle'of this bill was to restrict the  ambitions and the opportunities of  the workingman in money making,  and thus to lessen his chances for bettering his own condition. If an amicable understanding had been reached  by the smeltermen arid their employees  (and this was the only true way of settling such disputes) what possible excuse could the house offer for interfer  ence to disturb the admittedly satisfactory conditions? It had been said  that copper was higher than ever in  its price. This might be so, but did  any one suppose that.it would keep the  price ? The drop might come at any  time, and with the fall of prices to the  normal level should this legislation  prevail, the fall in price would in every  probability be immediately followed  by a lowering of wages.  FALSE  AND  HARMFUL.  False and harmfnl legislation of this  nature ,in his opinion had done more  than anything else to retard the development and handicap the prosperity  of the province.    Whenever the legis  lation and more than doubled wealth  production of British Columbia within  the decade as proof that legislation had  not retarded expansion, such growth  being indeed phenomenal; he also  held that the haulage of ores and coal  for smelting on the American side  would be greater than any increase in  wage expenditure could possibly be,  ascribable to the passage of this bill  Nor did the matter of price play chat  part that had been urged, for with  prices high the worker received no  more for his labor than the less fortunately situated mine. The price of  metal had no honest or actual bearing  on the price of labor.  EMINENTLY UNFAIK.  Mr. Fraser (Grand Forks) irt whose  city is situated the second largest  smelter in the world, said that last year  he had supported the parallel bill because he believed the smelter workers  were certainly deserving of shorter  hours. Since then bv a mutual arrangement, the Granby company had  reduced the hours of labor for its em  ployees by 33 per cent, while wages  had been coincidently lowered 10 per  cent.  This was in his opinion a subject to  be viewed with satisfaction by- the  the house and all true friends of labor.  There was in fact no legitimate justification for the introduction of this bill  at the present time ; the menjfrom Sloean should at least have left it over for  another year. Indeed so satisfactory  were the conditions' at the smelter today that men were deserting the mines  to come to the smelter for work, mining in reality suffering through the  difficulty of getting and holding employees. The difference in wages at  the Granby through the concession to  the men in the matter of hours  amounted to $10,000 per month, and to  ask more at present would be eminently  unfair, particularly as after four or  five years of immense expenditures the  company had only now paid a first  dividend -.of 1 per. cent* He had con-  suited with many of his constituents  who were smelter workers before coming to Victoria for the session, and he  was satisfied that the majority were  content with matters as they stood at  present. "He therefore hoped that the  members would on the present occasion see that "this bill was turned  down and turned down good."  The1' debate at this stage was adjourned upon motion of the member  for Cowichan. '  would be driven out of the province to  the American  side,  improvements of  an important character in provincial  smelters    would   be   abandoned,   and  hundreds of   industrious workingmen  would be thrown out of employment.  Further   still,  the entire   mining industry would suffer seriously  through  the smelters, and thus the province as  a   whole  would, suffer.   The premier  further urged that members who had  last year opposed the passage  of this  bill could not now  with any consistency vary , such opposition.   Nothing  had-happened in the interim to justify  the enactment at the present time.   He  did not for one moment suggest that  that the   occupation   of employees of  smelters wns not  both dangerous and  unpleasant���that the fumes and gases  were'not inimical  to health.   At the  same time it  was well known that in  the^Sritish   Columbia   smelters   very  good and ample measures were taken  to protect Hh  so7far   as   possible the  health ol the men against the danger-  bus conditions under which  thev were  forced to   labor.   It   was pleasant to  note too that,  perhaps largely as a result of the expressions of opinion in  the   house   last   year, there had been  marked  improvements brought about  and today's conditions were  much better from the standpoint of the men. At  the Hall Mines smelter, Nelson,  the  Trail  smelter   and   the Grand Forks  Bnielter, arrangements mutually satisfactory had  been  brought about, and  there was  nothing  indicative of any  clash between the  workmen  and their  employees.    It   was pleasant   to   find  such conditions,  and  he felt  that the  house might congratulate itself upon  having contributed' materially  to the  result  through  the course  taken  last  session   upon   this   bill.    He   did  not  blame the member ;for Sloean for hU  For Sale.     .  The furniture, bar fixtures, and a  McClary range in good condition. Apply A. L.

British Columbia could not afford to burden new  industries with the conditions uncalled  for and in addition to those prevailing  in other centers of similar industries  which were competitors with them in  these markets. Such legislation destroyed the confidence of capital in  British Columbia, and io long as such  legislation continued,) the country  could look for but little improvement  in its industrial conditions. He opposed this bill ih the interest of the  workingmen themselves. If for no  other reason���and he had cited several,  he would at its each appearance oppose this bill because- it operated to  prevent the working man making the  most of his capital���his labor���to better his own condition.  Support was given the bill by Mr.  Williams (Newcastle) who argued that  as the mining industry expanded, as it  certainly must, it would more and more  control by special representation therein, the legislature of the country, and  that therefore the present wa^ the accepted time for placing upon tho statute  book measures for the protection of  the workers against industrial oppression. If it was intended at any time  to regulate the hours of labor now was  the opportune time.  NOT ANXIOUS TO WOKK.  In reply to Mr. Patterson, he asserted that the workingmau's ambition  was not to secure opportunity to work  any twelve hours a day. For himself  he could say that he never wanted to  do so; his ambition was rather to work  the shortest possible time and get the  most money for his work, an honest  statement that was received with  mingled laughter and applause.
