By Avay of diversion the Gazette reproduces for the amusement and edification of its readers the familial limerick on the lady and the tiger. The  sentiment of the limerick is.next given  in ten different ways, after the style of  ten well-known authors. Iii this issue  Ave give three of them and will reproduce "the'rest;'AA'eek^hyAveek-until all  ten jijvye 'been giveii.' Readers are  asked; to guess the ''.authors, although  "guess", feseiircelythe Avoid for it, as  the idlm'tification is too complete to be  characterized Vis guess-AA'prk. In the  issue' between Christinas .'and NeAv  Years the answers' will he given and  all avIio'AVouId like to have a try at it  are asked to hand in their list of answers in sealed envelope to the Gazette  office any time before the night of  Dec. 21st, after AA'hich the ansAvers will  he published and  the names of those  who put in the full list of correct an-  sAvers, or if not the full list the greatest number, will also be given. In putting in the,..answers, ;also, it will be  advisable, for the.piirpose of eliminating' guess-Avork, to .specify thejwetn or  portion thereof by each author which  is copied in the reproduction of tlie  limerick.  Somestanzas may seem disgustingly easy, but even in these the adaptation is so naively executed that they  have sufficient:'worth, to preyeht tlie,|  familiarity from breeding contempt  There was a young lady of Niger ,  Who smiled as she rode on a tiger.

'".She's going for a tiger ride,"  Tin: Color-Sergeant said ;  " What makes her smile so gay, so gay.'"  Said Filos-on-Parade.  " She likes to go for tiger rides."  Tho Color-.Sergcant said.  " For she's riding on the tiger, you can see her  stately stride:  "When they're returning home again, she'll  hike a place inside;  "And.on the tiger's faoo'Avill be the smile so  :.    bland and avUIo,'  "But she's riding on the tiger in the morning."  Never in tlie history of the camp has  so profound an expression-of soitoav  and of sympathy been called forth 011  the part of our toAvnspeople for any  mine fatality as thafc.Avhich occurred  on Wednesday  morning of last Aveek  Avhen  the  Avoid got about that John  McKinnon,  shift boss on the Sunny-  sides, had met his death in the Sunny-  sides' mine of  the. Yale.-Mining  Co.  Ever since, he. brought his father and  mother from Antigonish, Nova Scotia,  and had them comfortably domiciled  in Hedley a little over three.years ago,  the people of this  tmvn   looked upon  him as  one of themselves,  although  hisAA'ork as a miner  in   the   Nickel  Plate compelled;'him  to  reside, iip at  the'mi tie.    The manner of his death,  too,  as  Avell  as the   high^' esteem  in  Avhicli he Avas held   by  all,   tended  to  deepen the impression and lend to the  occurrence the'.elenurnt of tragedy, for  it Avould seem that an inscrutable fate  had prepared  the  IiIoav, and dealt it  from the least expected quarter.'  As shift boss it  was  his duty to see  .that the mine AA'as safe for the miners,  and that duty he never neglected, being '.always the first to lead the. way in  barring down loose ground.    But the  rock Avhich snuffed  out his life in almost the twinkling of an eye,  did not  fall from the .roof of a stope but from  an'apparently solid  Avail and from a  point "no. higher  than-his shoulders.  -It was in the glory hole on Sunnysides  No. 2 that the accidenthappened, and  it occurred a,feAy minutes after going-  on shift in the morning.   The particular, point where 1 it. occurred  was in  broad day-light-and  AA'as. for 3 years:  Considered so safe that the tool box  contaiiiingcandles and other supplies  AA'as placed under it, . and in all probability the piece of rock. >veighing perhaps half a ton,  Avhich slipped out of  the wall and dealt the fatal Woav, had  been looked at by tbe provincial in-,  spector of mines Avho. paid his official  visitto the ..mine about   two... weeks  before.   These points  Ave.mention to  clear the memory of tlie deceased-from  any suspicion of blame for carelessness;  for there, was none on   his,.-part,  even  although it AA'as  upon  hini the duty,  .lay of' guarding against.ail:..accidents]  of that kind.    On  reaching the fatal  spot ;he walked to this .-box for a candle..  Looking in ami finding none,.:,he remarked to .two of his ��������� Cornish miners  Avho  were near him,  "there are no  candles here  boys," and  the remark  was no more than completed Avhen the  rock ilef t its place in the-wall,  and in  falling struckliini, killing hiin instantly. ' The others,  hearing the rock fall,  called to him and on getitipg no answer,  Aveiit np and found him.:   The first at-.  tempt to . release j him, failing, one i of  theni.

A  missed hole iu Stinnysides No. 3 delayed him a little on, his .way down.   This  detaining him  he ran  from  there to  the spot Avhere he \yas killed.    Had he  not hurried the rock would have fallen,  before lie reached  there,  but. he AA'as  anxious to get to the place. where the  men Avere to Ayork in Siuinysides No. 2  and see .that all was safe, for them to  begin.   Thus hisan^iety, for, them cost  him his oaa-i'i  life in  this  unexpected,  mysterious manner.   This Avas the last  of a series of narrow escapes AA'hich, he  had had in his career as a miner.    In  Camp  McKinney some eight or nine  years ago Avhile working in the bottom  of a Avihze, carelessness  on the part of  another employe Ayho   Avas.

Rossland, Nov. 20.��������� The Rossland  Miners'Union-by a referendum A'ote  to-day consented to reduce the Avage  scale to that Avhich Avas in effect prior  to July 1. The old Avage Avas $3.50 for  machine men and $2.75 for shovellers,  Avith the wst'ges.-.of the other employees  about the mine in like proportion. The  scale, Avhich AA'ent into effect on July 1,  Avas $1 for machine men and $3.25 for  shoA'ellers. To-day the mines closed  doAvn for the purpose of alloAving the  employees to discuss and vote on the  question of" the reduction of .Avages.  The union met at 10:30 a. 111." and discussed the question earnestly until  noon. '  A resolution prepared at the morning meeting providing for going back  to the old scale Avas then voted on.  When the union re-assembled at tAvo  o'clock* a referendum A'ote Avas taken  and the resolution carried by a Iwo-  third's majority. The mines therefore  will not shut doAvn as has been threatened for some time past, as the management declared there Avas no profit  since metals Avent doAvn, under the  higher Avage scale. And under the  loAvered scale it Avill hoav be possible  j to make a small profit.  The mines will re-open toinorroAV as  usual and it is understood that no  cloge doAvn will iioav ensue, as Avas  feared some days ago.  Rossland people are greatly relieA*ed  at the peaceful solution of Avhat, but  for the reasonable attitude of the miners, .might have been a A'ery serious  problem.

'  At the cotiA'ention the following resolution was moved by R. F. Green,  former Commissioner of Lands and  Works, and adopted unanimously by  the Convention:  "Whereas-under the terms of the  convention betAveen the governments  of British Columbia and Dominion of  Canada the former conveyed to the  Dominion large tracts of the best lands  of the .-province for the exclusive use  and benefit of the Indians, Avith the  express understanding that such lands  should correspond to the actual needs  of the Indians, and that the areas  should be reduced as the tribes diminished.  "And wheieas, in many cases there  has been a material diminution of the  Indians on the reserA*es ;  "And Avhereas, certain of these re-  seines are Avithin the confines of the  larger cities of the province, to the  detriment of-the'Couinumity;  "And Avhereas these reserves are being used by the Liberal goA'ernment  at OttaAA'a in the interests of political  favorites and not as originally intended;' '"������������������������������������!  ��������� "Be:it therefore resolved, that it is  highly desirable that steps be immediately taken tOAvards the re-adjustment of the areas of such reseiA'es so  as to make- the reserved lands aA'ail-  able for settlement."  While in theabove resolution no definite outline is given of the plan proposed; for solving the question, the  clause recoiinnendmg "that steps be  immediately taken toAA-ards the re-ad-  justuientof the areas of such reserves  so as to make the reserved lands-available for settlement,'���������' has the right ring.  It'shows that the frainer of the resolution thoroughly understood the question and had a proper conception of  the end in view.- And so long as that  end is attained there Avill he no quarrel  over theniethod employed to gain it.  ���������The resolution it will be noticed also  ���������makes reference to the tendency on  the part of tlie OttaAva."administration  to exploit Indian lands for (lie benefit  of political.'favorites. From transactions that have taken 'place in this  valley, it will not be difficult to establish instances of that kind. When  lease hold has' been obtained Avith a  vieAV to utilizing' land that Avas formerly in its Avild state, and use is promptly  made of,it, not'for individual benefit  alone but in some enterprise from  AVhich the community as a Avhole will  derive benefit, no objection is likely to  be urged.but all transactions in Indian  livnds Avill be narrowly scanned; These  lands either belong to the people or  they are as the laAV says "for the use  and benefit'of the Indians," and the  people Avill insist upon probing to the  bottom all transactions or deals in  them, 'and especially those that bear  the .semblance of graft.  Tlnvfact that' the question has been  made a part of the Conservative platform, as slniAvn by the passing of the  resolution concerning it at the convention, is evidence tlmt nob only will the  provincial, .government take the -matter up, ibut that the federal contest  will be fought along the same lines  until the province obtains her rights. -<���������        I ~        I  THE   HEDLEY   GAZETTE,   DECEMBER 5,   1907.  uiK 1k\itev Gazette  and  Similkameen Advertiser.

The action  of the   Rossland  miners   in   accepting    the   old  scale of wages and thus averting from that camp  and from  the smelter -towns of /-Trail' and  Ixorthport the  calamity. which  befel the Boundary, must have:  given a feeling of intense relief  to the  people  of those  towns:  It showed -the  beneficial  influence which the  wise, action  oif,  the Butte miners  two months  ago, -has. exerted in helping to  clear the atmosphere, so far as  the copper mining industry is  concerned.   To the Butte  miners was due the credit of the advanced scale  of  wages which  obtained during the summer of  1907  in the copper   mines   of  Montana and adjoining   states  together with those  of British  Columbia.    Taking advantage  of the phenomenally high price  of copper they Avent to the mine.  OAvners and were ready .to negotiate on a business basis. The  result of  that negotiation was  that  they  obtained, from the  mine-owners an agreement for  increase in the.wage scale based  on the price of copper,  the  agreement fixing 18 cents per- lb..  as the dividingJine'between-the  then existing wage scale*and ari  advance of about  15%   thereon..  This was secured by  the  Butte  miners off their oavii bats without assistance   or advice from  outside sources.     Of  course all  did  not agree  and   fault, was  found with  them  for entering  into this arrangement.    Miners  clseAvhere   used   the  Butte  instance as a lever to  have  their  wages increased to a like figure  and  British  Columbia    miners  were on hand with the rest for  - the cutting of the water melon.  When copper dropped beloAv 18  cents  the    Butte   mine owners  waited for a while before  calling on the miners to  carry  out  their agreement, but   finally  they demanded it and the -m'in-  'ers  agreed to   abide  by their  contract, when the former sc^le  was again-made to take ,,effect;-  on  November first.    This-was-  greeted with more faultfinding  from the outside   and   a'^fort^  night or so " later. Boundary  miners,   taking    advantage . of  the   technicality    that   no   18  ��������� mines and throwing out of employment over 2000 men, some  of whom are iioav Avorking down  here on V- -W.&'B. construction  at $1.80 for 0 hours A\rho \*oted a  feA\r weeks  ago  in  Greenwood  against accepting $3.50  or anything less than $i.00 for 8 hours.  Eyes were next turned to Boss-  land   and   Camp   Hedley.     In  these two camps  the  situation  was   rendered    more   complex  than in Butte because of the' absence of the 18 cent copper stipulation and also because of the  existence here of  the  Lemieux  | Act. Nevertheless Rossland miners were able to i ise to  the occasion.    With them the  Butte  spirit of fairness and  reason  in  the brains of men  who  owned  property and   had   families to  support was able  to over-ride  the passions of fire-brand aliens  who had no stake in the country  and a two-thirds majority voted to agree   to   the   old   scale-  with the result that Rossland  mines and the smelters in Trail  and North port Avill continue  to  work notwithstanding the dis  advantage of the  low price  of  copper.    The  Hedley situation  at time of writing  is -more  or  less unsettled,   but  it  is  hoped  that an amicable understanding  may be arrived at in a few days.  A'grave .'.responsibility, rests  on  those Avho had any hand  in unfitting the inen to dealwith the  'question sanely  and impassion-  ately when it was under consideration a few days ago.     Only  ..the.-fairness and forbearance of  the manager "who;.was..'induced  to overlook the attitude.of men  some' of whom were - not .in  fit  state to assert their better judg-..  ment kept this camp from  being in the same position to-day  as the Boundary.   That that forbearance has not . been misdirected nor undeserved.it.is ears  nestly  hoped   the   sequel '-'will  shoav.   [LATER-Siiice above.was  'put in type it has/been, learned  tha,t   Granby employees   have  approached-the -company with  air offer to accept the" old scale,  and the management, have''agreed to resume  operations today.    This leaves Camp Hedley.  the only producing camp: still on  the high wage scale  after November.   It is also said tliat tlie  Hedley .miners   realizing   this  and   knoAving.   that  they h^d  been, .given...the;.-l"iigJi- scale all  November- Avithout-' shutdown  are likely'to 'make an.  offer to-  take "the old scale 'from.Decern-'  be'r'lst. Such action would show,  the' managemei^t'that-: the-nien  haA'e  no.-wish-.! to  single  them  out for worse treatment  than'  has been   accorded   elsewhere,  arid it would keep .the .way open  for better relations  in  future;  While a less 'considerate  course  would be apt  to  leave  it  sore  spot to rankle.]      '  IN MEMORIAM  Lines on the Death of John McKinnon,  Killed November 27th, 1907.  1836  THE BANK OF  By J.
