J A meeting of fire sufferers was held in  . \e   Methodist  tent  Saturday evening  hiid a resolution was passed, after much  meech-making, requesting  the commit-  ijoe to secure as far as possible a list of  We sufferers, with the amounts of their  leusses,  with a view to disbursement of  Irfee money on some equitable basis.  hlSettlo the mutter as  tho committee  Yfay there is bound to be some dissatis-  ction, and some hardship 'unattended  "a>.

The disparity on (his rule is greatest between Victoria city, with 4 members for  2,822 votes, and'say Rosslaiid with 2,012  voters for one. The general assumption  in such cases is that where population  is dense reprepresentatives can look  after (he wants of many more people  than where it is sparse Thirty-eight  representatives are enough for the Province, but their territories should be so  arranged as to be something like proportionate.

The Masonic Grand Lodge of British  Columbia, which held its annual communication at Vancouver on Thursday  and Friday of last week, decided to hold  its next annual meeting in Nelson, adding one more to the list of, conventions  to be held in.that city in 1901. "This is  one more recognition of the fact that  Nelson is tho central point of the upper  country."���������Miner.  At the election of officers Harry Watson of Vancouver was . elected Grand  Master; Greig Young, barrister of Nan-  aimo, was elected Deputy Grand Mas-ter;  E. C. Chipman, the popular citv clerk  of Kaslo, was elected Senior Warden,  and Rev. Mr. Sharp,of Nanaimo, Junior  Warden. Dr. W. ,J. Quinlan, .was reelected Grand Secretary. No. C district,  which includes Yale and Kootenay, was  divided into three new districts, Mr.  James Hay nor, of Rosslaiid, being appointed D.D.G.M. of the district west of  Columbia River, and John Hamilton, of  Nelson, (rain superintendent of the C.

Turner and Eberts  that thcywould consider Sari-Ion's late  misfortunes favorably and do something  handsome to meet the situation.  Mr. Lilly, school trustee, was assured  that plans: for a new school building  would be here in a few days, and the  government would proceed with the  work of providing school accominoda-  tion-at an early date. ,  The following letter speaks for itself:  H.

Sir,���������Your letter of the 25th of June,  dated at Victoria, and signed by yourself and Messrs Grimmett and Lilly on  behalf of.the city councilof Sandon, was  .duly received and laid before the Executive.for consideration.

NICKERSON, The Watchmaker and  second-hand dealer' was born in the  business. Try him! Baker.street, Net*  eon, B. C.  TheC.P.R.is overhauling ahdstraightening its Robson-Nelson branch.  Mrs. Sterritf. formerly of Sandon, has  opened up a confectionery store at Calgary.  Mrs. McLaughlin, of Nelson, will open  up a large millinery stock heie in a few  days.  Mr. McPh'erson, latety arriyed, has  taken a position with Armstrong & Co.,  tailors.  The C. P. R. is putting on an extra  telegraph wire between Nelson and Slocan points.  Crawford & Grimmett have enlirged  their packing business by bringing a  number of mules from Vernon.  ���������J..R. Cameron is talking'of building a  small store next to his tailor shop., Lla  has lately enlarged his workshop.  A portion of the'Arrowhead.branch of  the C. P. R. has been washed away, and  the boats now run up to Revelstoke.  Sandon was not the scene of "The  Song of the Shirt," but we hear very  forcibly all around us these days the  song of the hammer and saw.  S. A. Haybrage, of Slocan Junction,  has beeu mulcted by the courts for selling venison put of seasan. It was a  "deer" piece of business for him.  John Boyd, of Nakusp, had his hand  so badly smashed while coupling cars at  that place on'Monday that his index  finger had to be amputated. The rust of  his hand will be saved.  The Slocan City people are again urging the government to build the Lemon  creek wagon road. The&road is badly  needed and should be built; but it is a  connundrum how the 40 people there  who voted for Kane could see that Joe  Martin would buildit.  The thunder storms of Sunda3r evening  were said by many to be the worst^seBn^  in the district, and something fortunately not as common as in the open countries. A little wind with the first one  made it a little interesting for those citizens holding down tents.   '  Only a horse and some lumber over  the' broken Sunnyside road, was what  many saw upon rushing to their doors  on Tuesday, when they thought another  calamity had befallen the place. Ready  I assistance from the Palace below soon  I relieved the animal from its uncomfortable, if not perilous, position. ^.  It is said that when John Houston '  saw the paragraph in last week's Review  referring to his relation with American  citizenship he swore an oath as long as  any of the stripes on an American flag.  We believe that Mr. Houston.disclaims  American citizenship, but does not deny  he took out his first papers declaring bis'  intention to become one, and any one  reading that dechiration' renouncing.allegiance to Great Britain, must say (hat  until disenfected, 'as we believe Mr.  Houston has not been on this side, he  stands at least on a- very ragged edge ,  between the two countries.  PURELY PERSONAL,  G. IT. Bartlctt went down to Nelson  on Tuesday.  Mr. Bernard was a visitor at the B. C.  Capital this week.  S. S. Farwell, M.E. of Nelson, was in  the city this week.      ���������    >  Mrs. McKinnon went to Rossland this  week and brought Frank home for a  visit.  Miss B. Moore, of Kaslo, was in the  city yesterday on the way to Victoria for  her holidays.  R. R. Trueman arrived in the city  yesterday to remain over Sunday, when  lie will take in the Nelson eel.  Invitations are out for the marriage of  Miss M. A. Lees and Mr. Larry O'Neil,  at the residence of Mrs. Ilasicett, Three  Forks, Monday evening, July 2nd.  At1 the Capital.  "Sailor Jack!' appcared'on the streets  Monday evening last with his redcoat.  He is certainly the' first man in Sandon  ready to fight the Boxers in China,  A bear entered a; miners' cabin near  Slocan Junction on Monday,,in ' the absence of the ownors, and ate all the trrub  insight. He believed in grub-(s)taking  miners.  Victoria, B. C, June 26.���������All "is quiet  in political circles. Mr. Mclnnes and  his private secretary arc on the ..'.Mainland. Chief Justice McCoIl, the administrator has arrived. He will officiate  until the arrival of Governor Joly.  The dates of the bye elections are arranged as follows: Nominations; July 5,  and elections���������East Kootenay, July II;  .South Nanaimo, July 10; Lilooet, July  T2,1and Dewdney; July',10.  A few cranks, who think that ex-Governor Mclnnes has,not been sufficiently  rebuked, got together this evening and  unanimously decided to tender that  gentlemen the nomination in Victoria in  opposition to J. H. Turner. People who  are not' entirely crazy do not think Mc-  Iiines will consent to another drubbing.  ���������Xelson Miner.  ������S555  fl&V The Mining Review.  SATURDAY, JUNE 30/ 1900.  CAPITAL AND LABOR'.    .  ."we should Imye a fair proportion of  labor representatives in the House,"  said Mr. Smith, "and by that I mean  men who will look after the interests of  our laboring men. I don't mean that  we should retaliate at thc expense of  the capitalist. We don't want demagogues, we don't want anarchists. We  want intelligent men. I want to  say to you that capital has a right  to be protected just as well as labor.  The man who will take the broad-  minded and impartial view of matters  affecting labor and capital is the man  you want to vote for. For myself I am  specially interested in this campaign in  the laboring man. 1 want you to thoroughly understand my definition of a  laboring man. 1 do not mean only the  ��������� man who uses the pick and shovel. I  mean the broad and onterprising man  who is doing some service for liis fellow-  men and for tho country "  We  have  not  always   agreed  with Mr. Ralph Smith, the labor  leader, for the simple reason that  " he lias not been always the same  in his utterances ;   but if he and  all men assuming similar responsibilities would always give utter-'  ance lo thc sentiments expressed  by him  at Nelson on the   21st of  May,   in   the foregoing  excerpt,  there   would be   infinitely  fewrr  1 disagreements between capital and  .labor.     Mr. Smith now says we  want no "demagogues or anarcli-  ists" in the provincial legislature,  while he himself said at Rosslaiid  a few mouths ago that a cure for  the   labor trouble   then  existing  was for   the government   to   take  the properties out of Ihe hands of  the owners and work them   itself  as it  might think  proper.     Mr.  Houston re-echoed thc sentiment.  Of   course   demagomieism     aud  anarch)' could go no further than  that.     iVir. .Smith   is   quite right  in saying also that the man  who  works  with the pick  and shovel  is not alone the working man nor  the   friend   of  the workingman.  In short he   may be   the greatest  enemy   of.  the  workingman   by  being  an anarchist and  a demagogue at the same lime, while thc  man in an other calling niay look  at the  question  from  a  rational  standpoint,, and  work   for  labor  accordingly..   The trouble  is, in  all these matters, that the parties  affected   take  up fads,   and   the  masses, fanned, by the arguments  of bigoted leaders, consider all  enemies who cannot rim the fad  mad with them.  Mr. Smith's late admission that  "capital has a right to be protected as well as labor''' is something new from that source ; but  the man who acls-on that principle 'is. in reality the true friend  of the people and the country.  There is no denying the fact that  the tendency of capital is to keep  down the price of labor just as  much as it is for a wrheat buyer  to buy wheat as cheap as he can.  On the other hand, 'again, the  farmer is just as much disposed  to make the buyer pay two prices  for his wheat, if lie has it in his  power to compel him ; and so is  the laborer disposed to make the  employer pay high prices for his  labor if circumstances will permit  it. This is the tendency of the  world, and the man who endeavors to always equalize the extremes is the friend of the people  of the country. His aim is to see  that neither extreme imposes on  the other, and to always lessen  the chances of their doing so.  As labor is a marketable commodity, it must rise and fall as  other marketable commodities do.  It is no argument for a man to  sayi' "My day is worth $3.50 as  it costs .rac so much to live,'' unless he considers what the employer realizes out of it,.and the  other surrounding conditions. A  bushel of wheat in Manitoba, for  instance, varies in value from 40  cents to $r.oo. It may cost thc  farmer as much to produce it  when he can get but 40 cents as  when he can get $r. The surrounding conditions determniug  values must be taken into account  as well as the cost of production.  For instance, in our own mining  districts conditions may conspire  to raise or lower the cost of living  or the value of service to owners,  silver may be 40 or So cents, the  hours may be lengthened or shortened, or thc sanitary conditions  of the scene of labor may be favorable or very dangerous. As we  have said, niauy; conditions tend  to determine the value of other  commodities and they must have  the same consideration in determining the value of labor. The  man who examines them all in  instances of difference is the man  who' protects capital' as 'well as  labor, and is, therefore, according  to Mr. Smith's later views, the  man who can properly represent  a community in parliament.  LOWRY'S CONSISTENCY.     ,  "Notwithstanding the fact that much  ozone has been consumed, and much ink  spilled over the eight-hour law in the  Slocan, we believe that' if the bright  light of truth could make' the majority  of miners' thoughts visible that most of  them would prefer the old system with  the old wage instead of the new system  and the new wage."���������Ledge.  Then where was the consistency in  abusing, the past year, all the men who  held that view of the situation and advocated it?   That's the point.  J. W."

Sandonites are now bringing in New  Denver brick by the car load.  Rosebery strawberries are in great demand wherever they arc sampled.

If an outsider read nothing of the Slocan mines but what appears in the  Kaslo correspondence of the Nelson  Tribune, he would conclude that every  mine in the Slocan was within an arrow  shot of the Kaslo bookstore.
