 K  A^-^^U^'^7  VQL 3-NO. 28.  SANDON, B. C, SATURDAY, DECEMBER 23, 1899.  FIVE CENTS.  JO SEIREIil YET."  Imperious Conditions Imposed by the  Unions "Make Farther Dead-lock.  From what we can gather the mines  are no nearer opening now than they  ���������were months ago. The owners made  an offer of S3.25 a day for hand drillers  (which is the main point in dispute),  agreed to recognise the union and offered other concessions. A. reliable  party tells us that by, a vote of 130 to  17, the union on Saturday last decided  to accept f 8.25, but they insist on the  observance, by tho owners, of conditions to which, they will not assent, as  many of them are. irrelevant, and boiiic  of them impertinent. One is, we are  informed, that the owners after 30 days  are to expel from their- works all men  who refuse to join the union. There  ought certainly to be legislation to prevent such tactics being employed. The  Silver-Lead Mines Association would  be just us much justified in taking  steps to stop operations at tho Star  mine because its owners refuse to join  the association, as tho Miners' Union  is in asking the dismissal of good,  faithful men who may refuse to join  the union. This is the expression of  despotism, out and out. The miners  are fully within their province in asking for the acknowledgment' of their  unions by associated capital, but they  have no right to ask for the destruction of the independence of British  subjects in a British-colony.  to produce results in the tunnels, and  all wages in all other callings are based  onthe principle of results. In a bush,  one man will naturally cut U cords of  wood in eight hours, another will cut  2 in the same time and a third 2������- It  would be manifestly unfair to pny all  three the same wages���������it would be unfair to tho men and unjust to the employer. Tho same is in every respect  true of miners. The unfairness then  consists in demanding the same p ty for  all men by unions and similar organizations. Good men may be willing to  see the same wages paid to them paid  to inferior men without di3sent, for the  purpose of supporting the contentions  of the union, but all the same it is unfair to them and a gross injustice to  employers. No one will attempt to  gainsay this ; and yet, for saying it,  some will say The Review is an enemy  to organized labor. The inference is  that no matter what inconsistencies,  unfairness,or gross injustice there m..y  be in the rules and regulations of organized labor, they must be winked at  and condoned by the press of the country. Surely no sensible, reasoning  man endorses such a policy. Organized labor ought to acknowledge the  universal principles of sound business  economy���������one of which is ��������� the payment of service by results. One clerk  gets $20 in a store, another $15 and a  third $10, merely because the results  of their labor to their employers ars iu  this proportion. Other industrial callings aim at the same usage, and mining should be no exception.  '   ���������*- WltT_ ENEMY. -  Preparation for War Was Made Years  -----Ago by the Boers.  Labor Trouble Talk.  Union Rights.  It appears to us that the effort of the  Miners' Union, in their answer to the  offer of the 'owners, asking for the displacement of all non-union men after  30" days, must alienate much of the  public sympathy they formerly ' possessed. When they agree to accept  ������3.25, as offered, and make the acceptance conditional on such arbitrary demands, it must show the public that  . the deadlock is'hot the result of dissatisfaction with wages, but a desire to  get absolute control of the mines���������to  get the entire mining interests of the  country into their grasp. This knowledge will again drive the owners to a  greater extreme, and they cannot: bo  blamed for taking it. The explanations of commissioner Clute show that  the alieli laws prevent the importation, practically speaking, of no one,  when they come iu of their own free  ..will.-"; ,_ ;���������'���������'./��������� '  The miners' unions, as such, have a  perfect right tb see that all owners  take all necessary precautions for the  safety Of life and" limb; that ..auitaple  boarding and bunk-houses are maintained .;-��������� that the eight-hour law,' while  in force.as it now stands, is rigidly observed ; that unions' are recognized and  that : suitable1'payment is made for  ^vork'Jone, but when they assume to  clictate who shall arid who shall not be,:  hired now or hereafter, they go further j  than aily lover of fair play can endorse j  .them ir, going. The, idea, is;, to get the  entir0 mining interests of the country  under their .control arid at their mercy;  which we know the legislature will not  tolerate, nor'tho good sense of fair-  minded people of other employments  condone. Foreseeing people must  know under the circumstances, the inevitable���������and the consequences must  reBt on the proper shoulders.   '   .    ,  The Nelson Tribune names a number of British colonies working an  eight-hour law, and says if it works in  these it should here. If a Webb per-  lecting press works well and is profitable in the Toronto Globe ofiioc, should  it not work well and be profitable in  the Tribue office? The absurdity of  the proposition is apparent to every  one. In all cases conditions should be  similar before comparisons are made!  In the first place it is desirable to see  whether or not the laws of the other  provinces liave penalties'like ours, ur.d  in the "next place it is necessary to  compare the proportion of mines to  prospects in these countries with those  of this before laws can be properly  paralleled.  One very important matter in connection with this labor trouble wholly  overlooked is this : A great deal of the  labor expenditure of thu camp is on  prospects and new properties, where  packing in supplies is very expensive,  and a second reason is there is no return output. The late law makes  more men necessary to do the same  work. The extra expense of packing,  ���������because of the" bad facilities, the extra,  men for given work and the lack of return loads is a matter of serious moment..     '' '���������',"'���������'."':���������'."  New York, Dec. 10.���������M. dcLcmg, the  manager of the dynamite- factory at  Modderfoutein in the Transvaal, has  returned to France and has been interviewed by the representatives of several of the Paris journals. Ife says  that British government can have no  idea of the vast extent of the preparations that the Boers have been quietly  making for years with the realization  that another struggle with the full  force of Great Britain was inevitable.  Even should the Boers bedriyen out of  Natal, he points out that no British  army could' ever hope to enter the  Transvaal and survive.  Since the war began, he says, heavy  artillery, that had been carefully stored  away, had been brought~forth. He  asserts that the forts ati|retoria and  Johannesburg are as strong as any  fortresses in the world and have within  the last month been rendered absolutely impregnable. Edelberg alone could  hold its own with 25 mpn against 1000  assailants, particularly in tho rainy  season, which has just begun, causing  unt'ordable streams to spring into existence.  M.de Long states that there are  about 6000 well-trained German volunteers in the Boer army who have not  yet been allowed to go to the front.  He adds that the governments of republics are showing a great economy  of strength and have not used a third  of their military resources.  "The powers would at one time have  divided up South America if it had  not been for the Monroe doctrine. But  England and the United States do not  want the dismemberment of China.  The are deeply interested in the trade  ot that country. They Would prefer  the whole of China to he open, rather  than haye some of its ports closed.  "Our market is in north China, and  if Uussiu extends her possessions there  it would be a problem whether or not  wo are to be excluded, We should  prefer to have the influence of England  .and-this .country thrown in the direction of open markets. China is in just  the position that Turkey was. If it  had not been for the great, powers  Turkey would have been carved up  Ion? ago.  "The great powers may go on just as  they have if the government at Pekin  can hold on, but that government is so  contemptuously weak that it is always  offering something for help. But the  greatest security against the dismemberment of China is tliat the great  powers can not agree upon the terms  of division. For the nonce things are  likely to go along a& they are now, but  ultimately a dismemberment is not  improbable."  MINES AND MINING.  PERSONAL   MENTION.  Trouble Brewing at Rossland.  Be Fair all Around.  As the men decided, by a vote of 131  to 17, to accept, the owners''offer' of  S3.25a.day,for stoping, it is. qute evident that tiicliody'of tlieminers take  a sensible view of the situation, and  want to go to work.. The machine,  however, mtterlards conditions that  cannot be accepted, to keep the trouble  going. It would be a good idea to hold  a mass meeting of citizens Unit the  union might see how publiu sympathy  is drifting.  A HERO OF THE NORTH.  Five Persons   Perish  Under  the  Yukon  Ice After Escaping Krom a Wreck.  In his evidence before  the  commissioner, the other day, Mr. Bremner, of  New Denver,   one .of the ' most   levelheaded inen in the camp,  threw some  light on the eighHioursituation.   He  said to overcome the breaking strain of  a rock a certain force of a blow is necessary, [of course the force varies with  the kind and conditions  of rock���������Ed.  Review] and constant exertion of that  force  for  eight.hours would tire out. a  man.   If Mr. Bremner had defined the  man, his evidence   would  have   been  conclusive.   Now every one knows that  men differ in physical strength���������scientific knowledge,   age,   and experience  all determining durability.   Supposing  . it took a ten pound blow to do whit  Mr. Bremner considers necessary, then  from  overcoming the breaking strain  of   the   the   rock   some/men,    from  the  conditions   named,     would'  tire  in six hours, some in eight hours and  others would be less overcome in ten  hourB~ttll of which goes  to show that  age, strength, experience,   knowledge  and natural endurance vary the capabilities of men from 50 to 100 per cent.  Victoria,   Dec.   19.���������The     Danube  brought further news of toy loss of the  steamer Stratton.     John Riley,, engineer of the wrecked steamer,  according  to rews received, was a hero.   He stuck  to his post, in an effort to save the vessel, until the watet came up  and put  out his lires.    M. Mortimer, on his arrival at Dawson on November 14th, reported the wreck of   a  boat   near the  Stewart river,   and   the   drowning   of  threo men and two women.   The accident occurred on November 3rd.   The  party were drifting down  the river in  an open boat.    One man was at  the  oars, but he could make no progress as  the ice'hemmed them in.   Mortimer  shouted to them of  their danger, but  they did not heed, arid a moment later  they were caught in ajun.   The craft  was struck broadside on  and capsized.  All were drowned.   M, Mortimer could  not recognize the party, but says that  they were from the wrecked steamer  Stratton.  ��������� Snuth-Curti.-.s. of Kojsi ..������d, brother-  in-law  to   Joe Martin,  and   anarchist  like him, now ndrnits what wo pointed  out two weeks ago, as a certainty���������that  there is trouble between  the men   and  the owners   at liossland.     The cause  there is that the men  haveprohibited  contract work.   It is coming to a pretty  pass  truly when an owner cannot let  the working of his property whatever  way he likes, when ho observes the law  and   pays proper  prices.    Like Ralph  Smith,  the  Rossland anarchist would  recommend the taking of the properties out of the hands of the owners and  working  them   by government;   That  man   must indeed  be   a lunatic who  thinks   that   a   Canadian   legislature  would pass such a law, or that a Canadian court would tolerate it if passed.  The said anarchist speaks of the people  as being at the back of the miners in  the   impending' fight.     They   are in  what is fair,   but   no   further.   They  were' at the back of the miners in the  Slocan  until   an agreement "in . wages  was reached;   but; since it is   learned  that wages are no longer the point in  dispute,' but   the   right   of mouthing  leaders of unions to ruiv the  country  as they desire, public opinion is going  the other way as fast as it can.   By a  vote of .131 to 17 tho   union here decided  to accept S3.25  for stoping and  the owners  consented  to  pay, it,  but  still ,iin agreement is not reached  because the owners refuse  to sack faithful non-uriicn men and  to consent to  changes equally radical and unreasonable.   The general public want to see  the miners get proper pay for the legal  day, but they do not want to see  the  owners or the country  imposed on by  alien   agitators.     Since   the    unions  want to see alien miners  shut out, the  owners have concluded that alien agitators ought also to be muzzled,   and  give   the  honest   wage-earner  a  chance.  . Dudley Blackwood was in the city a  few days this week.  Mr. II.'B. Alexander has returned  from his long eastern visit.  R. EL. Carley, of Nelson, was in the  citv on Tuesday on business.

Byron Sharpe, of Nelson, visited his  friends in the city, the early part of  the week.  Messrs. F. J. O'Reily and R. W.  Rathbone, of Silverton, have gone to  England.  James Wilks came over from Nelson  to attend tho miners' union meeting,  Saturday last.  Miss Moore goes to-day to Kaslo to  spend the Christmas vacation with her  brother and sister.  All of his friends are glad to learn  that Mr. Wm. Siulrow's health is improving quite rapidly in California.  The return of Mr. and Mrs. F. 0.  Sewell from their wedding trip, Monday evening, called the. fire bell into  requisition'.  For week ending Dec. 21, the Florida  mine shipped from Whitewater 19 tons  of ore.

Angell, president of the University  of Michigan and former minister to  China, addressing the business men's  class today upon the subject "The Dismemberment of China," said :  . "There are some things which indicate that dismemberment is not unlikely. The great powers have pursued  exactly the same course in Africa, that  they are now doing in China. Rsusia  is on the point of taking possession of  Persia and will do so unless Great Britain interferes, arid it is strongly suspected that she wants India.._ All the  powers have got concessions fin China,  and to dismember it are doing what  they call 'extending their sphere of  usefulness.'  Mr. Stevenson was the first one to be  sworn, and stated that he had been  mining all his life, lie believed that  a man could accomplish as much work  in eight hours as in ten and had had  experience both, as miner and employer, and as either preserved the eight-  hum-day, as' the man worked better  under the eight, hourshift.

He stated that  Os comwany were working nine or ten  men up Hall creek, and that he found  that the cost of devolepment was about  20 per cent more working the eight-  hour shift than the ten. That is when  working threo eight-hour shifts each  man would lose about one hour, as it  is impossible for the men to return  whithin an hour after the blast. Be-  Heyed that better results were accomplished with two shifts a day than  with three, arid that conscientious men  would do more work in ten hours than  in eight. Had heard coal miners in  England talk of working nine arid ten  hours, but knew notheng positive.

The  buildings are now roomy, comfortable,  well-lighted and well-seated, and tho  teachers are doing the be3t for those in  their care. Wo have no hesitation in  saying, in anticipation, that the evening entertainment was well patronized,  as most of the parents and friends of  the children took a lively interest in  in the preparation of the program, the  bulk of the work, of course, falling on  the shoslders of the teachers.  raws  ������������������'���������'N:#| ; s  i i  TRAINING HORSES.  Preparing  ������l>e Stock for   Ihe Circus  IMhk  In Summer.  All through the winter circus men  ire training the animals for new  tricks for the next summer. The  winter is by no means an idle time.  Training horses for the ring is inler-  ������sUng work. The first thing done is  to P'ut the new horses in the stables  with the old circus horses to get them  used to their Mow company, and a  queer thing noticed is .that the old  tiortos are jealous of the newcomers.  A ricut deal of. patience and time  Is required! to train the horses to run  around the ring. They are blindfold-  fd and taught to run around tho ring  !n a circle. The natural tendency of.  t'he horse is to run straight, and it  I/a a hard thing for him to learn. A  tystern of checks and lines makes the  training easier than formerly.  ' The horse is an observant animal  ind apt to do what he sees) another  horse do, so .when the blndfold is removed he is placed alongside an old  trained horse, and the man who is^to  ride the now animal does tricks with  the old ones, then tries them on, (he  pupil. A good, intelligent horse soon  learns and actually  helps his rider.  Horses are very sensitive to applause, and with that stimulus will  do twice as much work as without.  They are just as likely to lose thoir  be ids as human performers and have  to be carefully watched. A well  trained ring horse is easily worth $1,-  D00, and riders who are stars usually  own their horses. The most caro'ul  attention is given these animals.

He, as is well known among  his   friends,   has   been   searching    for  such a medicine for ihe last few years  and until recently quite vainly,      He  has since been cured of his own case  and  he    reasonably infers    that    the  remedy    that    cured him    will    cure  others.  ilheumatism is well known to be a  disease resulting from diuu-'dorod  Kidneys. XliaL ia nowadays an acknowledged fact. Uric acid, which  should be filtered out, ofiitha. blood by  the kidneys, remains in tho system  when those organs are unhealthy, and  lodges in the joints, causing rheumatism. The reasonable argument remains therefore to cure Rheumatism  by curing the kidneys. This is exactly what Mr. Barkely did. He used  Dodd's Kidney Pills���������the best kidney  medicine in the world���������and is to-day  entirely free from his old .complaint.  He writes as follows:  Dodds Medicine Co.,  Gentlexnon,���������I have been for three  rears troubled with Rheumatism. I  Dave tried several remedies but to no  ase.

The' remnants of wines and edi- |  bles are  sold to  leading Vienna res- j  taurateurs, and the proceeds go     to  augment-the salaries  of  the kitchen j  personnel,    whose    incomes    by    this  means' are often trebled and doubled.  At the Spanish and Italian courts the  expenses for desserts are now reduced to a minunum,   but probably nine  people   out' of  every   ten    would not  complain if this minimum were their  maximum.

Dancing Christmas fairies always enhance ��������� the ch'ldren's delight in the  Christmas tree, and once made can be  used year after year. , Buy up a dozen or more of five! and ton-cent dolls,  and to add to the variety, have among  the number some Japanese and colored dolls. Dress these to represent  fairief. in bright hues of spangled  gauze, tariatan, or tissue-paper, and  liberally sprinkle their hair and garments wilh diamiond-dust powder.  Each doll should be provided with a  daintj pair of fairy wings made from  spangled tissue-paper and fastened to  tho body by means of concealed wires  These wires should be coiled to obtain  motion in the wings, and nothing better can be used than, the fine spiral  coils that come out of worn-out, wire-  stitched brooms. Tho least motion  will set this spiral to quivering, causing the wings to move as if in flight.  In like manner use the spiral wire to  attach tho dolls in hovering positions  over and around the, tree. The effect  is magical; every footstep causes jar  enough to start the dolls dancing and  circling above and around the tree, as  if tho invisible fairies of the air had  come down to join the Christmas gleo.

Pearl  collars arc quite the fad, of as many  strands as the length ofi the wearer's  nook can stand, with narrow slides of  tiny rhinoslones, sometimes four and  sometimes five. These collars must  fit tho neck closely, and as they are  tho most becoming neck ornament,  softening lines of age, bringing out  tho fresh lints of youth, aip consequently in fuvor wilh all woman,  young, old and  middle aged.  iAs tho very latest wrinkle in Paris  is the gray ostrich feather boa, it may  bo confidently expected that there  will be an influx of these dainty neck  dressings among the smart women  this fall nnd winter. Jn anticipation  ot this fad, arid having learned by experience in tho p'.ist how very difficult  it is to keep boas of any kind, feather,  fur or otherwise, in place without injury to the perishable material of  which they are made, the Parisians  have hit upon a novel and protty conceit for effectually preventing boas of  my kind slipping (heir fastenings.  The newest device is a silver or gold  snake, twisled so that it forms an S.,  in and out of the twists of which tho  boa is wound. The head is raised as  if ready to strike, and the eyes, of  emeralds, or rubies, give a nobby touch1 to tho pretty ornament ns  thoy glitter in the fluffy masses of  furs  or feathers.

AL the Christmas season everybody, no matter whether, he has been  helped or not during the year, tries  to do something for those he loves, and  often for those he does not love, but  who need lo have something done for  lhem. Let us give our Christmas  gifts on the principle of "lifting a  little." Let us choose tho sort of present that will lighten a burden where  we can do so, as well as one that  will simply give pleasure to the eye  or taste ot those who receive it. Too  many times we choose what we think  is pretty, without regard to whether  it suits the needs of the one on whom  we would bestow a remembrance. It  is not gratifying to one's self to give  money, and yet money is often the  most sensible gift we can bestow,  for the people who have real needs'  do not iiko' to mention them, and if  they have the money it can bo made  10 give real pleasure, nnd at the same  time, to lift n burden from the rnind.  We have known families to receive  gills of the same articles of clothing  which, at great cost of labor, they  had jusi succeeded in procuring for  themselves. We have known families to receive beautiful gift books  lhat mubt 1)2 handled carefully and  kept away from the dust, who would  have been so crraicful for school  books, maps, cbarls, and such things  as they con.slanl ly have to buy. To  people- who. have little space give  nothing of which thoy must take care  -7-that is, after a momentary pleasure, adding a burden instead of lifting, one. -..-..'���������  But you, will say :    Oun gifts are not  charities,  but expressions-of our love  Uv our friends.   Yes, and   the expressions of love will always take care of  themselves.   Love always feels-its way  to  the thing that meets a loved one's  need, so    wo say- nothing    about that  here.    But at Christmas time there is.  almost-,,-as. much- giving  of  the  other  sort (hat is not .really charity, yet is  not love, as there is giving prompted  by   love itself, and- it is  in  this that  great care should be taken..   We. give  to   the .aged, for it makes  them giad  to  be   remembered;    We  give    to  invalids to brighten the sick room.   Wc  give to.little children everywhere, and  to. the people especially of whom we  know, who would be likely to.'get nothing if we did not.    For all these we  need to use good, judgment and sound  common  sense,    seasoned   with    real  kindness   and   love.  We say nothing aboiil receiving, tor  it is 'characteristic'-of the higher life  to find'it most blessed to give. But  the groat gift1 of all, the Christ Himself/and all the lesser gifts that follow inthe. lines of, His coming, are,'I  am sure, 'not. forgotten'tit'this or any  time of the year. How would it have  be������n with us if He had never come to  Belhlohecm? How would it have been  with our civilization, our country, our  whole outward and inward life? Wo  Ikivo only to do some thinking along  tlstit line to be very glad and grateful  on Christmas Day.  PAKADB OF THE FIRST LEICESTERSHIRE REGIMENT AT LADYSMITH  Showing the British Camp and the general lay of the Country Round.  "Bring me the baby," Hammond  said, and tha nurse, used to sick -peo������  pie's fancies, complied with the request, setting the baby down on tha  bed.  "Now, if you please, I'd like to havo  youi leave us alone awhile. You see,"  he added, apologetically, "I want to  havo a little private conversation  with] liim."  The. nurse smiled  faintly and  went  away.   Hammond looked at the baby>  fox a few moments in critical silence.  "You're    a    bouncer,"  he    said    at  length.   "You   most   certainly   are."  TJi'K baby gurgled and laughed and  showed   four   small   teeth.  "Oh, it's a great] n-ld joke, ol oourse "  Hammond went on rather bitterly,  though1 he wan smiling back into the  boy's big, bright, eyes.  Hammond tipped the small head tor-  ward and closoly examined the top.  Tho tiniest of ringlets wore beginning  to curl themselves thereon, and when  he let the baby straighten up a small,  dampi spot had appeared down among  the curls. Hammond fumbled about  under the pillows for his handkerchief, but failed to find it, so drew  his sleeve across his eyes.  "Don't you imagine, my boy, that  I'm- crying. Not a bit of it 1 It's just  this beastly- cold I've got that gets  into my eyes sometimes, I wonder  if you've noticed the doctor ? He was  here this morning; and do you know,  that) fellow told mef I can't ger -well,  all on account, of this cold ? He even  seemed to' think that I might be going  before long, for he shook hands wilh  me before he went away and told me  not lo worry, that it wouldn't be hard  al<'the last, that I'd just go to sleep."  Hammond regarded the. baby whimsically for a moment, then his face  changed.  "Howi I could, have loved you if you  had been mine I" ho said Intensely.  "Greau heaven I How I do love you I  "Perhaps when you get big, you'll  like to tell people about thai money  ot yours ; (hat it's gold from the Klondike.

But it's been hard on  me, you know, unconirnonlj- hard on  me.. Besides." he added reflectively,  "you mustn't take offence at. my  mentioning it, but your dad's distinct- .  ly co.mmon.place, even if he is a friend  of mine. But then,' I'm rather of the  commonplace, order myself.''    .  He: was growing weary, so it was a  relief- to have the nurse enter and to  hear her say: "The baby Will have  to. bi going now, Mr. Hammond, he's  .stayed long nnotigh.'* So Hammond  kissed the baby's cheek and his forehead, his knees and his hands, and  the back off his neck ; and closed his  eyes while the nurse carried the child  nway.     ,    -' '".'.'������������������  This was 'about.'six o'clock in the  eveming1 and some twelve hours.later  the nurse drew, the sheet up over  Hammond's face and went: to tell Mr.  and Mrs. Margrave what had happened. ,  It was a week after this that Mr.  Margrave came .home trembling with  excitemeut. ���������    ;  .    ' "  "What do you think, Marie?" he  exclaimed, to his wifo. ';  "What is it?" asked Mrs. Margrave,  trying! to show an' interest which she  did  not1 feel.  "There's been .1 good deal ot speculation* at the club as to what Hammond brought back from the Klondike. Nobody, had any idea how much  it was. Well, to-day J received art  uivitntion from Judge Morehouse to  b> present at. tho reading of his will.  And  what do you think?"  Mrs.   Margrave,   was   non-committnl,   ,  partly   because   she  feared    to    trust  her voice.   It was not easy for her to  talk   about   Hammond.  Mr. Margrave's face was flm.,ied,and  his eyes shining.  "It's a hundred and fifty thousand  if it's a penny, and he's left every  dollar of it to the baby, our baby.  Margrave, junior, if you please. What  ri stroke of Hick that I asked him here  when he got so desperately ill! It  was dreary at the hotel, but his dread  ot the hospital was mere, childishness.  I felt at, the time that it was rather a  weakly sentimental thing to do: but  you know I am soft-hearted, .and he  was an old friend, though I never  thought he amounted to much. I  thought at one time that, he was in  love with you, but T never was certain  about it. Poor old Hnmmon'd'l I  wish I'd liked him b.sttcr.; he must  have been very fond of me.

A union miner called at The Eeview  oflice Saturday, after the issue of the  paper and subscribed for it, telling the  -���������' ���������"'���������   editor at the same time that he read it  continually, and had found more com-  111611 sense and sound reasoning'insit'  ,   ���������: than   in any.other paper he met  with  l-in the Ivootenays.   We do not want to  ';' boast of this in any way, but we "think  .-.    if more of the miners rend.' the  paper  '. .,  carefully from week to week, instead  : .. ��������� of listening to the eroakings of parties  who from motives of spite or greed are  ���������interested m misrepresenting, it, they  ������������������������������������������������������. would tdnie to pretty much; the same  conclusion.   The Review does ubt.ciire  one straw more for the owners'than it1  does for the men.   Our ..first eonsidera-  .������������������ tion is for the policy best calculated to  promote the growth of the country and  all the interests, leading up to jurosper2  '..;������������������   ity.   From the very nature of  things,  labor, is always more or less jealous of  capital, and capital is,ever anxious to  get all it   can out of labor.' , The duty,  of a government and a well disciplined  press should be .to ward off collisions  between them and encourage harmony,'  for neither can ever amount to much  without the assistance of the otber.and  ... the more agreeable the assistance .the  ..-������ better the service 'of one to  the 'Other  and the general results to the country.  A proper government in any country  should  first aim at developing its re-  r   sources;, and:with those as varied and  extensive as they are'in  this province  ;We  require millions   of an  industrial  population and  almost unlimited cap-  ���������;���������-.  itah to employ it.'   Is setting the fractions   we have of both at   each others  : throats   by legislation, in   this   early  stage of the country's history, the best  means of encouraging either?1  That's  the point.     The. unreasoning   miner,  who can see nothing but the wages he  ;.'���������"' can get from day to day, js disposed to'  combat anything and everything that  does not say he is entitled to all he can  get regardless of the ability of the employment of capital to pay.   The Review  has time and again said  that in  many instances eight hours is as long  , a shift iis should be put in in tunnels;  arid that expenses,  risks, etc., considered 83.50  is not an extravagant wage  for first class men.   Wo-came to  this  conclusion   irom ' the usage   in   other  countries.   But in. taking  the miners'  ease this far, they should all be wiping  to have his employer's case considered  also.   It  is admitted  all around that  whenever the   mines   do   open   here,  :mauy men who are not first class  will  have te be employed.   Now,  fair play  .-all around will acknowledge that  hour  for hour  they should not get as much  ���������pay as  the iirst class men.   To try   to  :force it from the employer,  under the  impression that the owner cannot help  "himself,.is very unfair, and no government or', well-balanced journal should  wink at extortion.     The out and out  . union man says turn these second and  third class men down the hill  and let  them destroy the wages of other lines  of labor, but keep, them out of mining  to prevent a reduction of wages.   Then  why not keep them put of the unions ?  Their connection with the unions is a  false advertisement, a representation  to the world that they are what  fchey  are not���������capable  men.    Every   other  branch of industry hiis as good a right  to look for the highest wages as miners, and if inferior men, advertised by  connection with unions to be good, are  driyen   out   of   the   calling   of  their  choice, it is only to enforce a disability  on some other branch of labor,  which  allmust admit is unf.iir,   The  proper  thing is   to  change the conditions in  mining so that tho industry may properly employ all belonging to the craft.  If a man wants the pay of good men,  allow hitn to work  long enough  hours  to earn it.   This  is simple justice to  the man and to the employer.   If he  does not  want to work  long enough  hours to earn the highest wage, giye  . him  the. shorter shift and let him receive what he is relatively worth for  the time.   This  is the ease in nearly  all other branches of employment, and  It is found to work no hardship on the  the men and   no injustice to the employers.     What we would like is   for  some one who finds fault with The Review  to show wherein it is wrong in  this line of reasoning.

Do not gripe,  Price 2So.  the  Local House,  the coming session,  in an eight-honr. law for all brunches of  labor, in fact,for all working for wages.  The Review has  always .said, that no  radical changes.should be made in the  labor laws of any country while labor  was satisfied, with  its status ;. but at  the same time there ia no denying the  fact that all people should be treated  alike.   "Fish and flesh" laws  are very  unfair.   There  are business people in  all parts of the Slocan   at the present,  who have nothing top bad to say of the  mine  owners   in   this"_ struggle,   that  work, their   own  employes. 12 or  14  hours a day, and why it should.be so is  the point to explain.   If the mine owners  onlyact carefully and judiciously  there is no reason why such (i measure  should not be passed;   and  passed  it  will-bring things to: a level and : the  people of the province to their senses.  There is no denying.the fact that most  clerks  and employes of business men  of the Siocan could do  the work  in 8  hours,'.instead   of 14, that  they  hare  had to do since May last, if placed before, them,   and the idea  is   to bring  things to a level.   If, for instance, Mr.  Green has to pay the wages for S hours  he is now paying for 10 or 12, he will  have a foretaste of how the mine owners are a fleeted by the present law, and  such a foretaste will occasion serious  reflection 011  the situation,  aiid so., on-  all along the line.    When also   former  representatives find they have  to hire  two 'men to dp the present amount,of  work done by one,  they may come   to  the conclusion, and that wisely, that it  is  never wisdom to thrust legislation  between capital and, labor���������that it  is  always better, where it can be done, to  have"the   two elements   uninfluenced  arrange their own differences.  chines;! and Tor.obyious reasons   but  two full shifts can be put in under the  present law, the same as under the late  law,  and all acknowledge the work'of  machines is reduced from "a'fifth;to. it  fourth as  a^consequence.- -.Taking:.'all  these circunistancesinto account, oven  bythe acknowledgements of the miners themselves,for a given expenditure,  the Kootenays over, the results will be  reduced in the neighborhood of a fifth.  Is there a man who will, in the face.of  these admissions,  say that; mining in  the Kootenays is net  being injured by  the'-present  law. ,  In   twenty   years  -hence,'when nine-tenths of the properties may be  mines instead', of.: prospects, as'itt present, the story might be  different;  but it is an able object lesson as it stands.   Whether eight hours  are a long or short'enough day, or $3.00  or-$3.50 i3 a proper wage,;, are purely  matters between owners nnd men,  but  the law arid   its consequences  to the  country aire clearly matters for legitimate newspaper criticism. '������������������-.,��������� 7 ,  AND; OTHER INVESTMENTS.  '.Every Representation Guaranteed.  .  We notice that   the Silvertoniiin endorses ; our- plea , for   local-'municipal  management of .the'"unorganized parts  of- the Kootenays.   With such organization   such   officials    as   provincial  police,  that cost the country a lot of  money and are of but'little service, as  they are se fur removed ��������� from one another, . could ,be. well dispensed  with,  and local officials,  paid by fees' when  required, substituted.. ���������, The  organization need not be'fulf municipal autonomy; bat sufficiently authoritative to  collect   the necessary  taxes and look  after  the requisite public works?   We  believe, proper taxation of properties  now  wholly untaxed iu every district  would pay  all the  necessary expenses  of management.��������������������������� Three commissioners'  elected by .the people in each district,  with power to submit debentures, levy-  rates, collect taxes, let public contracts  and supervise their proper completion,  would be all that was required.   There  might be some'difficulty in properly  defining the, powers of such   commissioners at?the outset; but as municipal  institutions; in provinces having them,  are continually undergoing changes to  meet   the   growing, demands' of   the  country, there could be nothing wrong  in changing these organizations from  time to time also.' All residents of the  country are-fully agreed that the country is now too populous and   too important to be longer governed satisfactorily  at its present   long range from  Victoria.-  Sweetbutter can't be made in a sour  .churn.

Therefore, by their own  showing, tlie output will be less under  the present law than it was under the  old law, and the mining interests must  suffer to thai extent.

Kilmeny from her hiding place shivered as she caught sight of his face.  This was not the man who was so  fcind and considerate to her, who ox-  ;used her inattention, pitied her loneliness, and made himself more necessary to her every day. This Lord de  Bruyne had steely eyes which glittered  with anger, and had a look stamped  on his face whioh might have) matched  Lady Penryth's own for its cruel, coldness.  "1 was prepared for this Lady Pen-  rylh," he said, folding his arms and  compelling her attention. "I suspected that you would try to steal a march  on me and break off tie marriage. Tho  letter which you wero kind enough  to write to Miss Daryl disclosing, the  falsity of the stories that you undertook to make up about Christopher  Warreuder reached my hands instead  of hers, and lot me into; the game! that  you intended to play. It struck .me  as something new and refreshing that  you should turn virtuosly at the close  of your career, and desire to confess  and make amends."  "1 knew it was only a chance, my  letter reaching her," Lady Penryth  answered. She had recovered her  composure, and stood opposite to him  with an expression quite as malignant  as his own. "I dare say other,':iet tors  were suppressed, too, and perhaps  visits from her old friends. L heard  something about a    Doctor Richmond  A Double Disobedience.  But in a moment her courage rose  again. She would not tamely submit without at least an effort for freedom. She dared not strike a light,  but she took a pencil and felt! 'in the  keyhole to discover whether tho key  remained outside or not. Tho pencil  went clear through, letting her know  that there was no obstruction. She  stole to her dressing room for. the key  of it, but only to meet' with ,a second  disappointment. Tho key of ��������� that  room had been removed also.  As Kilmeny stood helpless, a  thought suddenly occurred to her. Tho  kiey which she had brought with her  from the conservatory might bo of  use. In another moment sho had  softly fitted it into Ihe lock. It turned, and sho was free 1 ���������  She withdrew the key, having locked the door behind her. If the rest; of  her way were clear, her flight would  not be discovered until the next morning, by which time she hoped' to bo  safe. Slowly,' listening and pausing  between every stop, her heart beating  with almost audible throbs, she stole  down the staircaso and along thef hall  until she reached tho conservatory by  the door through which Lord de  Bruyne had taken her on tha night of  her engagement. She felt hot and  cold by turns as she groped her way to  the far end and laid her hand on 'the  door of escape. It opened easily,  and in a moment she stood in' the cold  night air.  She closed and .locked the door, and  made her way  as quickly as possible  into the   shade    of    the   trees.   ��������� Tho  'solemn darkness and the unutual still-  sailing and being denied admittance m ^^ fri  hlen8d her as she orep(. aiong,  M.'.sa Daryl a name. leaving the sleeping house behind her.

"Leave me to manage that," he answered curtly. "Miss Daryl may be  simple enough to bo shocked at indefinite stories about her friends���������Lady  de Bruyne will soon bo wiser."  L<idy Penryth laughed scornfully,  ami Lord de Bruyne went on without  heeding her.  "You may go!" he said sternly. "And  let me warn you to beware how you  meddle with me or my concerns. I  have taken care of my own interests  hitherto, and i can take care of them  in luture. You have tried in every  way to injure me and break off tho  marriage that I inlend to make,  but you have failed in every particular.  The girl shall be my wife to-morrow,  and after that I defy you I"  She climbed the stile when sho camo  to it, and went along the; .sidepalh towards the little cluster of houses which  was^ near tho cottage that Cbis had  offered to Mrs. Richmond. She was  uncertain what to do when shei got  there, but she knew that she would  feel safer if she wero near living beings even though they were asleep.  The whistle of a train close by gave  her a sudden' thought. She hurried  on her shoes and hat, tied her veil  closely, and ran on to tkei station.   ,  It was a night train, and paused for  scarcely a moment. Kilmeny waited  for no ticket, bui rushed into the first  carriage that she could see. No one  noticed her, and in a moment she was  off.  She was free!  The Irain stopped at Bedminster,  where Kilmeny jumped out and escaped wiihout notice. Ten minutes  later she was standing before the  well-remembered door of her early  home, and in the darkness could discern the outlines of ihe house looming  ovor her. Kilmeny, in her great gladness and Uiankfulneas, pressed her  hands on the.beloved door, her face  against it... She had reached homo at  last. '  At length she summoned-r up  strength ito^ ipnill the might  bell.       She-        could hear the'  peat resounding <ri the house, and presently a window opened above. Doctor Kichmond's voice was heard asking if the case was urgent and Kilmeny answered in trembling tones unlike her own that it was. In a few  minutes she'could hear his steps as  he came down the stairs,'and then the  bolts  and   bars   being  withdrawn.  He  CHAPTER VIII.  The steps of Iridy Penryth and Lord  de Bruyne had long ceased to be heard,  and still Kilmeny sat motionless where  they had left her. It seemed to her  as if she had suddenly come to the  very brink of a chasm and was about  to step into it. She had been deliberately trapped into her marriage engagement by a series of falsehoods invented to blacken Chris Warrender in  her eyes, when all the time he had  been innocent. As Kilmeny rose to  her feel, her mind'was made, up,  7  She returned to her own room, and  directed her maidt o inform Mr., Daryl  that she would remain alone for1 the  rest of  the  evening.      She dared  not  make any attempt to escape while dayT   opened the door,  and the light which  light  lasted,  but  in  the end  of Octo-I he "held in  his hand fell full on her.  her the dusk  soon  falls.

She carried the key  back to her room with her.   !'  .Four hours later, when everything  was quiet, she dressed herself" tremblingly in the gown which she had worn  on the day when she came to her  grandfather's house, and, taking her  shoes and hat in her hand; went softly to. the door.

She had been so sure of .escape that  .the thought of this had never occurred  .to her.      Lord do Bruyne    had    been  hement, loving  like  a child,  who  had  1 come back.  Mrs. Bichmond, hearing a commotion in the hall, came in her dressing  gown, trembling a little, to the head  of tho stairs, and then, with a joy-  fulcry, rushed to embrace her darling,  Kilmeny presently found herself in the  familiar dining-room, with her head  on Doctor Bichmond's shoulder, while  his arm encircled her, and Mrs. Bichmond kneeling beside her, holding her  hand and dwelling on her with overflowing eyes of love and sorrow while  she told her story. They wanted her  to wait until the next day but she  could not be persuaded to do so.

Ho had wished at first to  withdraw, but Doctor Bichmond signed him to remain. As he stood, leaning over Kilmeny's chair, as her story  came to an end, his eyes wore dim  and his hea"ft full of thankfulness that  ho felt he could never express, even  if his life should bo prolonged threefold" beyond   the   ordinary   span.  " And now," Kilmeny's faltering  voice i concluded, " 1 havo come home  again.

"I think, my dear,"��������� Doctor Richmond said, smiling at his wife, " tho  girl would be the better for a cup of  tea, if you will make it for her, and  we can talk about her mistakes and  their punishment to-morrow. And  meanwhile Ibelieve that Chris would  like to say something for himself  which may perhaps put a different  face on matters and make Kilmeny's  future not quite such a doleful ono  of repentance and penance as she has  marked out for herself."  "Chris here I" cried Kilmeny, starting ux������ with a littlo scream to find him  close beside her.  Dr. Richmond judged it best to  withdraw with his wife to make the  tea, and, on the whole, it was the very  best thing that they could have done.  Kilmeny's flight was not discovered  unitl the morning. Her maid received  the key early from Lord de Bruyne  and unlocked the door, but did not enter her young mistress' room for some  time, thinking I hat she slept. The  knowledge that she was gone convulsed Mr. Daryl with an anger that ho  could not control. In his .ungovernable, fury he disclosed the reason why  he had hurried on Kilmeny's marriage  with Lord dp Bruyne and had hesitated at nothing which could soparate her  from Mr. Warrender. One of that  young man's relatives, whoso death  had brought tho Merridale property  lo Chrispophor, had denounced Kilmeny's father, and had had him  brought to justice for some of his misdeeds Through him, Mr. Daryl's  heir had spent some of his time in prison.  The old man could never forgive this  public disgrace, and the name of War-  render became hateful to him. ever after. One of his strongest, reasons for  acknowledging his granddaughter was  to separate her from Chr.stopher,  whose attachment to her he suspected  from the beginning; and the bitterest  drop in his cup, when it was found  thai she had returned to her friends,  was a knowledge that sho had again  come into contact with the man whom  he hated. In tho transport of h:a  anger, he declared, that he would compel Kilmeny to come back and force  her to marry Lord do Bruyne, a statement which was received by that  nobleman   with  contempt,   i  The next news was that' Lord de  Bruyne had left England for an indefinite  period.

"Can you bear to hear something else���������something which will shock  and grieve you ?

Kilmeny became a great lady, as sho  had once wished to be; but the time of  her connection with her grandfather  and her residence, under his roof had  made her look on riches with a different eye.

Is there among your friends a weary  invalid, for whom you are longing to  do something beautiful and helpful at  the coming holiday season if If so,  you cannot do better than to undertake the preparation of a wonder bag  for Christmas, or a friendship calendar for New Year's day. v Both these  plans, though they may seem formidable on account of the large'expendi-  ture,, not of money, but of time and  labor, are well worth trying. ��������� They  aro potent in their power of bringing  cheer and sunshinb into a sickroom,  not only once, but many times, during the weary months of suffering. A  wonder bag is a large bag filled with  gifts from many friends, which are to  be dra.wn out on special' days, according to accompanying directions. It  may be arranged to last for any length  of time���������three months, i tx months, or  a year���������drawings beinjj mado once,  twice, or thrice a week, as may seem  best Since the recipient of the bag  is not given "a list of Ui"e donors, nor  infoimed of the .character of the  gifts, a double surprise awaiis hor at  such drawings. This contributes not  a little to the novelty and charm of  tho scheme.  , In preparing the bag the first step  is to muke a list of all friends who  might wish to Join iru. such a labor of  love. Naming the date on which if  is to be packed, ask each to contribute  a suitable gift for it as early as convenient. Since these friends will  probably be scattered far and wide in  the home land, and perhaps in foreign  lands as well, it will be necessary to.  begin preparations early���������the earlier  the better, for there are likely to be  delays.  Make a strong bag of suitable material���������cretonne, denim, canvas, or  linen ' Embroider it with initials, a  monogram or other suitable design,  arid furnish it,with stout drawstrings  of broad ribbon. Siiice it is to hang  in the sickroom for so. long a time, it  should be made not merely durable  and serviceable, but also dainty and  attractive .  Wrap each article in tissue paper,  using many "tints, mark it with the  name of the donor, and, tie it securely  with..narrow ribbon of a contrasting  color, leaving one end long enough to  be used, in drawing it out. Pack the  parcels carefully in the bag, heavier  ones at the bottom, and let the long  ribbons  hang outside at the top. .  Gifts appropriate for special days,  sutvn as the invalid's birthday, April 1,  Easter Sunday, Feb. 22, a "very weary  day,', a "stormy Sunday,' etc., may be  designated by liny cards attached to  their ribbons. Most of the gifts,  however, should be left without dates,  in order that the invalid may have  the privilege of deciding which ribbon  to   draw.  Such a wonder bag was recently  sent by a lady in Ohio to an invalid  friend who had removed to California.  Filled with a great variety of beautiful and useful articles contributed  by friends'in many states, it proved  a wonder bag indeed. Its pleasant  surprises were a source of constant  delight, and the attending physician  was'loud in it������ praise, testifying to ils  beneficial  results.  This bag contained books, handkerchiefs, boxes of stationary, paper-cutters, a pair of invalid slippers, an ice-  wool shawl, an embroidered stand-  cover, souvonir spoons, doilies, a rack  for letters, cups and saucers of dainty  china, and many articles especially  helpful in a sickroom. Several friends  who felt unable to contribute gifts,  wrote charming letters, which were  greatly enjoyed and much appreciated.  Tho preparation of this bag, which  had gifts enough to last six months  two being drawn out each weok, occupied fully two . months.- It might  perhaps be accomplished more speedily, but it would be most unwise to undertake it on a short allowance of  time. If for any reason tho bag could  not be completed in time for Christmas, it could be sent later as a birthday  gift.  AFTER EFFECTS OF FEVER.

Mrs. Anges relates as fol- ���������  lows the experience through which  she has passed. "Four years ago this  spring, wiliile a resident of Bulfalo, I  had an attack of typhoid fever and  tlhe disease left m.i in a worn out and  extremely nervous condition, so that  the least noise startled mu.

Every , Christmas marks a fresh  milestone in the pathway- of life, and  it iB the habit of mankind to pause  at thia Reason of the year, and look  backward at the milestones that have  been passed. Scones of the olden time  are revived as the memory is stirred  with the happy recollections 'that clus-  er around Christmas. Wo see young  faces that were then bright cheerful  and rosy, hut are now aged with care  rather than years. The struggle of  life, with its trials and disappointments, has made them grave and  thoughtful. The, romantic ambitions of  youth havo perhaps been rudely dispelled by unprofitable and irritating  attempts to woo the fickle goddess,  and the ascent of the hill that leads  to fame and fortune, with the contentions inseparable from business, has  been found wearisome and depressing.  Gazing along the vista ot vanished years, other loved faces arise that  will never more be seen in tho flosh  ���������faces that wore among tho merriest  a>t the plenteous- Christmas feast; the  ringing m,ulsic of whoso playful jesta  still awakes echoes in the oar, whilo  tho voices that then sounded in joyful peals are now hushed iu eternal  silence.  At Christmas one is apt to recall  such pictures aa these, some pleasant,  but many, of them sad. We cannot forgot that some of the kind hands  which met in friendship's clasp aro  now cold, that; sparkling ey-is which  beamed over tho holiday least have  lost the luster of health, or have clos-'  ed forever on earthly scenes. In many  cases the great debt which, all must  pay has been paid; the1 battle of lifo .  has' ceased, and again and again the  Impressive lesson has been taught that  earthly rewards and honors are eva-  nescont^-that the grave levels all distinctions between rich  and poor.  The. pleasant reflections which we  can have;" especially "at' Christ-mas,  when the contrast -between wealth  and poverty become more painfully  apparent than at other times, aro  those which recall deeds of sympathy,  affection, benevolence. To a kindly,  heart there is more satisfaction in.  contemplating that it has done at least  a little to cheer the'- distressed, or alleviate human woe, than in tho knowledge that a few more dollars have  been added to a bank-book already  fat from methodical  thrift.

When the company is  assembled, a ring sounds at the bell  and a box addressed to the hostess arrives most opportunely. Into this  each person is invited to thrust a  hand, through an opening in the top  of the express package, and draw forth  a wrapped parcel, at the same time  being furnished with a card and  pencil. On opening, these bundles  are found to contain various pretty  trifles���������ornamental, practical and humorous���������and everyone is required to  write an original four-line verse in reference to his or her gift. The stanzas may express gratitude, admiration  or uisguut at the selection, as the  writer pleases. When all are finished, the "hostess collects the cards and  reads' the elfusions aloud, but without mentioning the author's names.  The players' then decide which is the  cleverest, the wittiest, the silliest and  the worst, prizes being awarded according to these respective merits.  Some people "jingle" readily, while  others seem, devoid of all idea of rhyme  and rhythm, so the efforts are sure to  create great amusement. -  At a holiday gathering last year,  the writer found that "fortune telling  by numbers" was received with great  interest. For this, prepare beforehand two sets of numbers���������running  from 1 to 100���������plainly written on  caivlboard, or thick paper cue .info inch  squares. Then enclose each set in ay  envelope, m'ttrkijig one "numbers" and  the other V uu.pl Loaie numbers." This is  very necessary, or "they may become  mixed. When ready lo play, the numbers are all dealt-out to those who  take part in Ihe game. If 50 are playing, each person lias two numbers, if  if they be quickwitted, diversify" it by  giving tho poor emperor a different  complaint and different style of  mourning, even more absurd. The  game, goes on until all have had a  turn, while a forfeit is demanded from  an actor or spectator .who' indulges in  the least suspicion of a giggle, or the  ghost of a smile.

A good story, on the line of mistaken  identity, is told by a clergyman who  resides within 1UU miles of Sandon.  He was standing in a certain business  place when a miner, a little under the  lnlluence of boozerine, came up- and  said, '.'Hello, old fellow! Have you  join ed the union yet?" On being answered in the negative he said, "Well,  you ought to, for'you always get help  when you're broku." "The proposition  suits me exactly," said the clergyman,  "lor 1 am broke all the time."  Geo. A. McDonald, a miner well-  known in and around Sandon, was  found dead.from drowning on Thursday last, o.u the bank of the river just  below Slocan City. It is said that he  was a member of the Sandon union,  and, we believe, he belonged to Glengarry, Ont. The Silvertonian intimates that trouble in the miners'  union at Silverton so preyed oh his  mind that he became mentally unbalanced, and probably committed suicide.
