Wilson moved the second reading  of the bill to amend the Coal Mines  Regulation  Act.   Tho mil  had     been  introduced many times l>cfo''c in some  form  but had  repeatedly   been   disallowed.   He had introduced the bill in  such shape  this  year lhat  he did  ������ot  think   it should  be  disallowed.  It simply providi-d  that     pos tions should  not be filled  by persons  unable       to  speak   English.   lie protested  against  the Dominion  government disallowing  1  these   acts   without   the   opportunity  being given  to argue the questions in  the courts.  If the bill referred to above becomes -a law as it probably will,  some of Ladvsmith's  residents    will  tercel  the port,   Hooding the principal  streets.
