Several of the eastern provinces have  assented to the bill, ami British  Columbia would have done the  same if it had voiced' the sentiments of tho people and not of certain classes. It was .weak kneed  policy which prompted the Dominion government to shift the responsibility upon the provinces,  and it was largely a spirit of stub-  bomess that caused British Columbia to stand in the wa}r of the enforcement' of the law.���������Pentictou  Press.  The Periticton Press is slightly  in error in the foregoing. Labor  unions do not oppose a day of rest,  and labor unions are not anti-  religious. If there is a printer  working on the Press,- he knows*  that for] 5 years previous to the  passage of the Lord's Day Act, no  printer working under the jurisdiction of the International Typographical' Union was allowed to  work more than six days a week if  a'substitute could be procured to  work rin his place. Previous to  this law being passed by the central bo#y, few printers worked  more than four or five shifts a"  week on daily papers, and some of  the local unions worked  under a  County Court.

The coal is not  a suppoaition, but a reality, as can  be seeD daily, teams hauling same  to the side track a short distance  from the mine, and. from the manner in which the company's business is being conducted, parties interested can ;have .no..fear of the  outcome. The coal has been used  locally for many years, but it was  not until the railway was&com-  pleted that work ��������� commenced in  earnest. Before the "end of this  year will see the company with its  collieries aud a large staff of men  busily engagedin getting out-the  black diamonds, and with this mine  alone will be able to support a good  sized town in a'short time.  Mr. Faulds, the superintendent,  is a man of vast experience in the  coal line- and everything done in  connection with the company's interests is done in a substantial and  business like manner. ��������� Nicola  Herald..

The tunnel is now in 700 feet and  it is the intention to run another  50 feet, with the expectation of encountering the ledge.  A part of the Skylark force was  laid off last week, and it is paoba-  ble that nearly all the high-grade  mines near Greenwood will either  reduce their force or shut down  altogether until the wage difncul-  ties'of the district are permanently  adjusted.  D. M. Curry came down from  Beaverdell Saturday and returned  on Wednesday's stage.

The Grove hotel, under tho able  guidance of Ernie Borden, looks  like & howling success.    It is lo-  by C. D. Goepel, will move its headquarters this month from Nelson to  Vancouver.  Ranchers should be instructed iu  the use of dynamite. One lost his  life near here the other day by failing lo keep away from a stump until all the powder had been circulated.  During the past few days Boundary people have been very numerous in the city.  Joe Gormerly- is mixing high  balls in the Office, while Charley  Macdonald gently slides the booze  across the bar in the Hume.  Pete Genelle, who sold 'all his  lumber interests last fall, has returned to Nelson after spending  the winter in Mexico, and will  likely settle down somewhere on  the coast. He reports Mexico even  more prosperous than Canada,  which assertion is difficult to believe by thoso only familiar with  the boom in this glorious Canada of  theO. P. R.'s.  Ernie Bordon, who at ono time  presided oyer the destiny of the  dining car on the Bulldog express,  had a grand opening of the Grove  hotel on Saturday evening. The  free lunch has never been surpassed  around Nelson.  Al. Gray has sold his ranch and  will leave here in two weeks for  Hazolton.  Holy Smoke!  The   provincial    legislature,   in  catering to the 'wishes of the mine  owners,     lumbermen    and    labor  unions in regard to the Lord's Day  Act,   will   not meet with the approval of the people of British Columbia in general.    Tt seems remarkable that the public who have  the greatest voice in the election of  of the governing bodies should so  often bo the least taken  into consideration when it comes to, legislation.    Wo fail to understand  why  the government should be bound,  on  matters of this kind, by any  five-day law. In 1894-;") the members of Winnipeg Typographical  union worked only five days a  week, the hours being S per day  in news rooms. We have not met  a single member of the Miners'  Union in the Boundary district who  is in favor of 7 days' work a week.  As for unionists being less religious  than other people, the statement is  ridiculous. Union men are like  other human beings in regard to  to their religious' leanings, and,  like others, can safely be divided  into fanatics, Christians? indiffer-  ents, agnostics, atheists, and hogs,  whose   mentality   or   spirituality  A diamond drill will shortly be  started on the Strathtnore. The  boiler to furnish power is now at  the mine, and worke will be commenced as soon as the drill arrives.  It is the intention to thoroughly  prospect the property with the  diamond drill, running each hole  in  1500 feet.  W. H. Turner and   wife of Ritz-  Ville, Wash., Jas.  Schiewe and J.  Whitus  of Spokane,   were  in the  city Sunday   and   Monday.    The  three gentlemen are interested in  the Sudbury claim in Deadwood  camp.    While here they made arrangements with E. G.

It is  evident that the labor unions opposed the enforcement of tho act  purely through anti-roligious sentiments. If an attempt were made  to legislate for theabolution of the  day of rest altogether there is no  class of people who would more  strenulously oppose' what they  would term an infringement of  their rights than the labor unions.  The stand taken by tho provincial  government that tho Dominion  should enforce its own enactments  is perhaps legitimate, but it is not  technicalities with which we have  to deal,  and  it is doubtful if the  stomachs. You will tind among  them many extremists, but the  large majority are level-headed,  reasoning creatures. Members of  large corporations m'ay be classed  about the same, with, perhaps, a  larger percentage of .pigs, and the  Press's special, pets, the farmers,  could easily be marked ditto.  THE COAL STRIKE.  Tho agreement adopted last week  by a majority voto of tho miners  was signed by tho district hoard on  Monday. It guarantees a 25-ccnt  raise per day for drivers and outside men, 15 cents a day for others  and about 5 per cent, increase all  ound.  Nicola Coal.  Work on the Nicola Valley Coal  and Coke' Co.'s property at Coal  Gulley is going on steadily and excellent work is being done by the  management. Tho tunnel is in  over (i00 feec and in good coal and  and is keeping up to the representations made by tho management  and experts who have visited the  property. Besides the tunneling a  good deal of preliminary, work on  other seams and general work has  been clone. A water system has  been installed and a fine flow of  water is now on the property.  W. H. Armstrong of Vancouver,  the energetic mauager, was at the  property last week consulting with  the superintendent, Alex. Faulds,  and was well satisfied with tho. progress of the work.

Laurier government is  spending this year in round numbers one hundred and thirty to one  hundred and thirty-five millions of  dollars, the sort of generosity of  expenditure that you meet with in  an election year.  A vaster expenditure of this sort  means the usual hooray about a  growing country and "expansion  and prosperity all along the line."  It also means that not very far distant there is a general election. An  appeal to the country in the fall of  190S is the accepted theory. It  lias been the accepted theory for  some time. The enormous monetary handouts provided for in the  appropriations passed by parliament���������with other things���������have  somewhat shaken the believers in  their belief. Among the other  suspicious circumstances is the  promise of Sir Wilfrid Laurier that  there will be another session of  parliament. It is no secret that  the opposition  have been  storing  try with a waving of flags, blowing  of bugles and dispensing of ducats.  It is a practical certainty that Sir  Wilfrid will come back ''with some  improved or readjusted trade arrangements with F.urope, perhaps  with some treaty-making right  also. He has already declared his  hostility to the establishment of a  permanent Colonial council in London���������if he did otherwisev there  would forthwith ascend a howl of  protests from the Bourassas of  Quebec.

The eminent counsel vainly imagined that  the statute of limitations with respect to such injunctions operated  after three months, but was both  shocked and surprised to find on  turning up in the court last week  that the Irish judge had by no  means accepted that interpretation  of the law, and still insisted on his  ''pound of flesh."
