This week the Greenwood Miners' Union have asked the B. C.  Copper Co. to make a wage scale  similar to the one in Butte. This  scale is a sliding one based upon  thc price of copper. If granted,  it mcaus au advance of 50 cents a  day to the $2.50 men at the  smeltpr, and the same amount to  the men underground while copper is 17 cents'.

Copper and Skeletons  Alpena, Mich., July 19.���������Forty  seven years ago the steamer Pewa-  bic foundered in Thunder Bay,  Lake Superior, with a loss of one  hundred and forty lives, and carried with her a cargo of pure lake  copper.  To-day a diver encased in a new  deep sea working device, known as  an "iron man," descended one  hundred and sixty feet, and trod  the Pewabic's decks, while on all  sides of him grinning skeletons  kept vigil as they have done since  that awful night in 1S65.  And as .the diver worked below,  the steamer Nelson Bloom, a sister  ship of the Pewabic, nd tho vessel with which the Pewabic collided, passed by a short distance  away, saluting the wreckers as she  moved.  The present wrecking expedition  is in command of Captain Wm.  Petrie and twelve men, and is a  purely speculative aflair It is  known that the Pewabic carried  over four hundred tons of copper,  and Captain Petrie plans to bring  this to the surface, a couple of  hundred pounds at a tjme, ou days  when the lake is calm.  The use of the "iron man" is expected to work a revelation in deep  water work. The divers are connected by telephone to tho surface  and talk freely as thoy work.  entered a suit against the same nwu.

In Vienna a women's society has  boon formed with the. object of  having all classes of women, single  or married, called, Madamo.

In.many men's minds, and women's too, dissatisfaction seems' to  resemble deep thinking.  If we cannot be profound, we  can at least be unhappy, and flatter ourselves that we are great  natures, misunderstood.  But there aro some women who  are champagne, and others who are  sedatives.  And what a woman is to a man  is a matter for the most part out of  her control.  It lies in her spiritual boquet,  her souls penumbra, tho electric  radio-dynamic of her personality.  A women can mend her ways,  and change her mind, but sho cannot alter tho essence of her womanliness.  She is one kind or another, by  the grace of God, and no soap and  nitre can take off her bom taint.  She can move her will about, as  a sailor moves the rudder, and go  this way or that; but no amount of  stooring and mastery can make a  brig out of a schooner.

Butte Coming Up  A special from I'uMo, Montana,  to the Boston Commercial says that  the I'upstion of wages between the  various mining companies and the  Miner's union has boon settled for  at least three years  A short time ago the union members through a committee bad a  conference- with O. R. Kelly, vice-  president of thc Anaconda company with the result that Mr.  Kelly submitted an ofiVr in writing  in regard to a scale of wages nnd it  was accepted by a vote of practically throe to one.  A few days later the union met  and ratified tho agreement and  signed a contract ar-oopling the,  scale proposed for three, years.  It provides that when copper is  selling for 1*3 cents a, pound or  moro the wages shall lm So.75 a day  and when it is 17 con Is a pound or  higher tho wages shall be. ������-| a day.  The previous scale was ������3.50 a  day.  Mr. Kelly made, the additional  offer to the effect that, should the  offer be accepted the scale should  apply to the June payroll, so by  the adoption of the offer the minors get Si a day for their work during June.  So long as copper is 17 cents a  pound or better the. wage scale will  be 84 and when it falls below .17  cents a pound it will bo $3.75 a day  so long as copper remains above 15  cents a pound. Below that figure  the wage scale will be, S.'!.50 a day.  A few years ago or just after the  Butto Miner's union made a five-  year contract with tho mining  companies, the Weslcrn Federation of Miners in annual convention condemned the making of contracts and practically ordered that  no moro should be made.-  There is no doubt that the question of the Butto, Miners' union  making a now contract will come  up at tho approaching" convention  of the Western Federation of Miners and some of tho radical or  socialist clement will make an  effort to condemn the same.  -v  Should any effort be made to annul the contract, the Bitte mineis  will at once give notioo of withdrawal and this is just what the  majority of the union members,  who compose tho conservative clement, would like.  When the Bu'fce  Miners'   union  ground in the district about the  North Butte, Butte & Superior,  Alice, Moulton, Elm Orlu and the  northeast and northwestern parts  of the district which are not tied  11P- ^_  The Raw Frontier  And there's other wimmin, faith,  entered the Western Federation  of Miners several years ago it had  a treasury up to hundreds of thousands of dollars, but the demand for  money to keep up agitation has  been so extensive that today tho  union funds are at a low ebb.  The payroll of the mining companies for the month of Juno ran  about 81,400,000, of which the  Anaconda company contributed  about ������1,000,000. This is at least  850,000 larger than May and according to all indication tho payroll for tho present month will  roach $1,000,000.  Thero is no other city in:tho  world today can claim as large a  mining payroll in proportion to the  population of the city as Butto and  this clearly establishes/once more  the oft repeated statement that  Butte is tho greatest mining camp  on earth.  The increase in tho price of copper is beginning to create a demand for claims which havo beon  idle for several years, for the reason  that tho oro in sight was not of  sufficient value to warrant it being  taken out of tho ground.  Within the past two weeks men  ������  have boon quietly at work securing  options on various pieces of ground  surrounding well known properties.

"Little Russia" camped  in tho roar car enveloped in garlic;  they woro bound for various "pits"  where Foley, Welch and Stewart  aro obtaining their ballast to raise  the east end of their 150 mile contract to grade and to throw into  the insatiable maw of the two sinkholes that have developed. In the  far seat near the rear of the car an  American flicked cards across the  top of a cheap grip ho held on his  knees, initiating an Italian and a  Finn into the national gamo of  poker. Bills and silver showed  that the. novitiates woro paying the  usual price for^the first degree.  "Little Russia" looked on and  smoked.  "I raisa you fifty cents," said  tho Italian banging down the  money.  "Cut that out, cut that out,"  snapped the American, "I called  you. I'm a dead game sport, I  am, but I won't stand for any  monkey work."  His record along the line scarcely  warrants his declaration .of integrity.  In the forward car, where two  persons and their belongings were  jammed into each soiled red plush  scat, two ex-TJ. S navy men were  exchanging experiences.  ������������������Yes, old Bob Evans went with  us on a trip round tho world as far  as 'Frisco. I got paid off at the  ond of a trip. Tho life in tho service cannot bo beaten, but there's  no money in it."  One shipped out as cook for 200  moil, tho other had got a job as  clerk on a now contract.  Every other man on the oar  seemed to bo French, most of them  settlors, all brought up from old  Quebec, 000 hundred miles away  by tho present route, to colonize tho  hinterland. Six or seven Laval  students enlivened the long journey  chanting college songs in French  and English in excellent time and  note. They were in the pay of thc  Quebec government to prepare tho  way for thc settlers. During their  three months vacation they will go  up and down each "range" examining the soil and the timber growing on it in the vicinity of the  various settlements that aro being  planted along the Transcontinental  in Quebec.  Just beyond Robertson Lake is  the sinkhole where day after day  "Little Russia" shovels hundreds  of tons of gravel into tho sullen  muskeg, and day after day it sinks  out of sight. Some day bottom  will be reached, and it must bo a  mighty long way down.  Beyond the "sink-hole" travel is  wearisome slow.    Everything has  the right-of-way of tho local, and  it was not until   10:30 that   tho  Harricana settlement was reached.  A crowd of inhabitants surged up  to tho cars and welcomed the incoming settlers to the log houses  and tents that at present form part  of the town.    It is not much to bo-  hold yet, but just back of the residency runs   a colonization   road,  straight and wide.    Everything is  very primitive,  very communistic  yet, but there is no need of prophetic vision to soo a city of the  future hero.     Prospectors   haunt  tho western bank, and store windows and  tents are full  of specimens.   Gold thero is undoubtedly,  in tho narrow quartz veinB, but so  far capital has not sensed pay oro.  If pay ore there, is,  transportation is of the simplest,   for  the  broad Harricana is navigable for  boats of medium draught for eighty  miles.   Gold is, of course, the luro  to the poor man, butM. J. O'Brien  is working the Independence mine  at Keewagaraa Lake for silver and  zinc, and a Montreal syndicate has  the Peninsula mines, molybdenite  and bismuth, And if you wish to  take a gamble in real estate. Harricana town lots arc on tho market.  Some fifty miles to tho east the survey of thc Montreal-Jamos Bay  Railway crosses the Transcontinental, and tho settlers of the  Harricana will bo within 250 miles  of home.  Peter Brown Creek, 150 milos  east of Cochrane is the ond of the  Foley, Welch and Stewart contract,  and this is as far as tho accomodation train runs. Beyond O'Brien  arid Martin hiivo laid stool for ton  of their forty mile contracts, and  the remainder is cleared and graded. East of that again thero is a  hundred milos of nnchopped right  of way boforo tho contractors  pushing   west    from  Quebec   aro  met.    It will bo oi*  this hundred  if  miles that the last rail linking  Cochrane with Quebec will bo laid.  ��������� Bon Hughes in Toronto Globe.. ���������  H. W.

It's up to You  While the local newspapers .of.  this and every other town in the  Ottawa "Valley are '���������boosting"  week in and week out for the benefit of their several communities,  what are the business men and  people doing for the newspapers,  for the latter cannot exist on words  of praise alone. The best booster  a town can have is tho local paper  aud it should fairly represent' the  enterprise of the place in which it  is published. For instance at the  present time we are trying to attract attention abroad and draw  people here. A glanco at tlie ad*  vcrtisirg colums of the local papers  should give an outsider some idea  of the town's busiuess interests  that do not carry a line of advertising in their home paper. Not  one half of the business men of the  town merchants and manufacturers  appear in the local papers. The  papers pnsh and boost week in and  week out in the interests of all, but  far from all help to support the  papers.  Imagine the mental picture this  town would present to tho outsider picking up this paper and  glancing over it, if the name of  every business firm appeared in its  advertising columns in a space  large or small."  Every man for his own and general good should advertise regularly in the local papers, oven if he  only takes an inch space.  The local newspaper should bo a  busiuess directory of tho town.  The town has, however, several  good advertisers who-constantly  keep themselves and their town to  tho front, and their ovample should  be generally followed.���������Ex.  \THATS AfJoTWcR GAM&  |_0M VOO.

They  claim the right men have got hold  for development purposes, and that  this camp will prove a genuine surprise to all British Columbia in thc  near future.    The   Summit   camp  lies about 2G miles from Tulameen  and the trail to it crosses   Beaver,  Eagle, Siwush, Kelly   and Sutter,  where the summit is reached.    Silver and lead is  the   product,   and  one claim alone is said to have hit  a five foot ledge of   galena.������������������Coal-  niont Courier.  While prospecting   through   the  hills cast of the town a man named  Adams discovered   a   quartz   vein  that looked good to him.    He took  ii number of samples, aud   staked  two claims, brought the samples to  town, and displaying them he   oft'-  ���������>,red a half interest iu   his   ciaimB  for $200.    Ho found no   buyer   at  the time, but a few days   later   au  assayer made an assay of the sample, and found it assayed in a rough  way over SI.700 to the ton in gold.  Tho result of. tho assay   was   kept  as quiet as possible, but it gradually leaked out, and in a short   time  over a dozen men left town all supplied with miner's licenses and all  ready to stake a claim if   the   find  proves a success.-Quesnel Observer.  A letter recently  received   from  Vancouver states that   interest   in  copper properties especially is keen  er than for   some   past   and   that  large copper interests  are   seeking  new fields.    If 23-Mile camp was a  little nearer to a railway line there  would be no delay in   its   development, but it takes high   grade ore  to pay for a 23 mile haul.    On the  other hand, there must be   enough  development to prove extent of ore  and permanency  of   value   before  reduction works will be erected on  the ground.   There is room   for a  development   company   to   bridge  the gap between the prospector and  the big   mining   company;���������West  Yale Review.  OPEN LARGE AREAS  A Victoria dispatch says: Before  many months elapse it is probable  that the land in tho railway belt of  British Cotumbia will bo handed  over to tho province for administration. Information to this effect  was brought back from Ottawa by  Hon. ThomaH Taylor, provincial  minister of public works, who has  just, returned from a trip to the  Dominion capital.  "Tho matter does not come within the jurisdiction of tho minister  of public works." says Mr. Taylor,  "and for that reason I discussed it  only incidentally with Hon. Robert  Rodgers, minister of the interior,  while we were talking over some  other things. I gathered, however,  that he favors dealing with the  land of the railway belt as the  water of the same area has already  been dealt with, that is to say, by  handing its administration over to  tho province on the understanding  that any revenue derived therefrom over and above expenses,  shall bo paid into tho Dominion  treasury, I havo no doubt that  tho subject will bo taken up by  Mr. Ross, as minister of lands."  Although nothing official has yet  been done, there is little doubt  that the suggestion which Mr.  Taylor has brought back with him  from Ottawa will be acted upon in  the near future. The claims of individual homesteaders aud squatters in the railway belt are now being investigated by S. Mabcr of the  department of the interior, and the  understanding is that all of these  claims are to be settled without unnecessary delay.  Meantime no more homestead  entries in the belt are being allowed  and no more timber licenses are  being issued, so that the further  development of this whole area has  practically beeu stopped until a  proper working basis can be reached.  It is not anticipated, however,  that this state of affairs will last  very long.  As soon as Mr. Maber has completed his work, it is understood  that the department of the interior  will issue a regulation by * which  the amount of land which a homesteader can take up in the railway  belt will bo reduced to forty acres,  and at the same time forbidding  homesteading altogether on timbered sections. The practical effect of  this willl be that future home-  steading in the railway belt will be  confined almost altogether to lands  requiring irrigation.  Having promulgated these regulations, thc Dominion will hand  the whole belt over to the province  for administration, the only restriction being that settlers will be  allowed to homestead the land  where suitable instead of being required to pre-empt it at a dollar  per acre.  As however, the revenue goes to  the Dominion treasury,thero would  be no object in tho province requiring any payment to lie made,  and in any event the province is  considering seriously the desirability of amending its own land  policy either by giving land to  settlers for nothing or by continuing to collect the one dollar as at  present, but returning tho money  to the settler when improvement of  a certain value has been made.  The Prize Ring  That promoters of fistic encount  ers and prize-fights, driven by  developiug public sentiment and  steadily increasing rigor iu legislative enactment from many of the  States where they have been hither  to permitted to operate with immunity, will endeavor to open up  a now field for their enterprises in  Western Canada, is the information  which haH reached the Social and  Moral Reform Council of Canada  from its correspondents in both  countries. Canada as a field for  tho pugilist is deemed more advantageous from a geographical and  monetary position than [is Mexico,  the other alterative for North  America, an effort have already  been made in the Province of alberta and Saskatchewan to "sound"  the authorities and test public  sentiment. Tho former, however,  havo so far proved obdurate.  It is proposed to try out the law,  however, by what is innocently  termed a "boxing match," but  which tho officers of tho Council  beliovo   to   be a   prize-fight,   at  In the Matter of the Eslati- of Gorman  West, late of Hull Creek, West l-ork  Kettle River, l?riti**h Columbia,  Peceased.

Saskatoon on August 0, when  Tommy Burns, former Champion  heavyweight of the world, is billed  to meet Tex Rickard in a contest  for physical supremacy in the  arena. Burns is a Canadian whose  baptismal name is Noah Brnsso,  and who held tne 'Championship'of  the world from thu time ofthe retirement of Jim Jeffries until his  defeat by Johnson, the present  colored holder of lhe title. Ho is  matched against Rickard for the  Canadian championship at a "boxing match" in which thc number  of rounds is said not to be limited,  and tho scene of the encounter is  set for the western Canadian city  on the day mentioned.  The Moral and Social Reform  Council is seeking to frustrate thc  holding of the mill. When interviewed, Rev. Dr. T. Albert Moore,  declared that every stop was.being  taken to stop the encounter. "Tho  people of Saskatoon," said he, "are  up in arms about it, and wc have  received several protests asking-us  to co-operate iu taking action. The  Province does not want to become  notorious by being placed in a position of seeming to encourage prizefighting."  Gold in Cape Town  Cape Town, July 10.��������� Tb is re-  porbed bliab a gold bearing, quartz  reef has been discovered in excavations ab bhe docks in Cape Town.  The reef is stated to be thirty feet  high and runs towards Signal Hill.  The discoverer is a man named  Teaman, who was employed at the  docks eighteen ye-irs ago, and then  suspected the - ples-enee. of gold.  He went north to the mines aud recently returned.  Yesterday he observed that excavations were being made, in order  to erect posbs. His early suspicions were recalled, and he collected some soil which had been removed. After a careful examination he handed to the Civil Com-  issioners a report to tho effect  bhat ib contained gold.  Specimens were submitted to experts, who were in ignorance of  their [dace of origin, and they  stated they came from a mine in  the Transvaal.
