The Rowland Miners' union by a
referendum vote Tuesday consented
to reduce tbe wage seal* to that
whicb wm in effect prior to July 1.
The old wage scale was $3.50 for
machine men and $3.00 for shovellers, with the wage* of the otber employees about tbe mine in like proportion. The scale, whicb went into effect on July 1, wu $4 for machine men and $3.25 for shovellers.
Tuesday the mines closed down for
the purpose of allowing tbe employees time to discuss and rote on
the question of the reduction of
wages. Tbe union met at 10:30 a.
m. and discussed the question earnestly until noon.
A resolution prepared at the morning meeting provided for going back
to the old scale was then voted on.
When the union reassembled at 2
o'clock a referendum vote was taken
and tbe resolution carried by a two
thirds majority. The mines therefore will not shut down as bas been
threatened for some time past, as
the management declared there was
do profit since metals went down,
under the higher wage scale. And
under the lowered scale it will
now be possible to make a small
There was a protracted meeting at
M ners' union ball Tues lay m nni ig
that was very largely attended, as
•li the mines were closed down tor
the express purpose of allowing tbe
miners to meet und fully discuss the
situation before taking a vote.
Many speeches were made, at this
morning's meeting and it is understood that the minority of the speak
ers favored accepting a reduction of
wages- under known existing con
ditiona. , *
Officials of Miners union wben
approached at noon today, declined
to give out any statement <s to wbat
was said at this morning's meeting
and after tbe vote was taken Ihe
same officials declined to give any
thing more than a general statement.
• The voting commenced at 3 o'clock
and closed at 0 p. tn. A very huge
vote was cast and it is known that
it stood at least two to one in favor
of accepting a wage reduotion.
It is understsod that in future tbe
wane scale will be that in force prior
to July 1st last.
All the proceedings leading up to
the vote today have been informal,
Ihe men deciding the matter upon
tbeir own initiative.
The mines will reopen tomorrow
, as usual and it is understood tbat no
close down   will now  ensue as was
| feared some days ago.
Iiossland people are greatly retrieved at the peaceful solution of

Liberalism and the West
The manner io which the great
West has been opened up is a niotiu-
-ueut to tbe sagacity of tbe governmenl, and tbe results a marvel of
tbe country. The land end water
transportation problems of Canada
have been solved in the interests of
the Dominion hs a whole. The
National Trunscontiuunt.il Railway,
to build which tbe Government received a direct mandate from the
paople, is being rapidly pushed to
completion, and very shortly Canada will bave another line slreich-
mg from tbe Atlantic to the Pacific

new debts created, and a handsome
surplus remaining. LowerJ tariff,
producing a greater revenue, has
been less burdensome to the people
and accomplished the purpose for
whicb it was designed. Tbe Post
O/lice Department has been managed
in a businesslike manner, resulting
in a surplus for the first time in the
history of the country. Every department of the Government has
been conducted upon business principles, in which honesty and economy have become apparent in the
satisfactory results secured.
A movement is now under way
whereby the Farmers' Institute will
assume the liabilities of the race
track and athletic grounds and turn
it into an agricultural park, where
fruit and agricultural exhibits could
be held, The liabilities of the race
track consist of fifty $100 shares,
and it is confidedtly hoped that
sufficient interest will be taken in
the scheme by the business men and
ranchers of the valley to take up
this indebtedness. A number of
Midway and Greenwood people are
said to be very enthusiastic over the
plan, as they realize that good agricultural exhibits in tbis neighborhood would benefit the whole valley.

The publio debt in 1896, alter hi
Conservatives bad been in olliee
esRhteen years, w«s $258,497,452.
When they assumed p iwer in 1878,
the public debt was $140,362,069,
so thnt in eighteen years tbey ud.leil
to the burdens of the people the sum
of $118,135,363, equivalent to an
average increase of about six and a
half millions per annum. During
'even years of Liberal rule there
has positively been no addition to
the public debt, but surpluses have
been created amounting to over $90,-
000,000. Sir Wilfred Laurier once
said, when speaking at Toronto,
that it was not necessary to quote a
long array of figures to prove the
prosperity of the country, for, said
he: You will feel the jingle of prosperity iu your pockets " This prophesy has been remarkably fulfilled,
for that the Canadian people have
felt the jingle of prosperity in their
pockets is everywhere acknowledged,
The policy of the Liberals to pro-
serve the public domain for lb*
settler is loo well known to be enlarged upon, but it is interesting in
this connection to remind the people
that the Conservatives voted as subsidies to railroads no less than 56,-
087,072 acres. These are the people
who accuse the Government of alien-
•ting the public lands and favoring
the speculator at the expense of tbe
settler. As a matter of fact, the
lands alienated by the Conservatives
were naturally selected along the
right of way of the various railroads
■nd were consequently of greater
value (in respect to transportation
of products) to the settler » ho was
compelled to buy from the corpor
ttion at a high figure the land which
he would otherwise have been entitled to take up free as a homestead. This is the manner in which
the Conservative government protected the homeseeker of the W st, ly
forcing him to buy from thn railroad or locate so far from the line
that it became of no service to him.
