In   November, however, there was a falling off  of more than 500,000 pounds, about  200,000pounds dT which was shown  at the Hidden  Creek   and   300,000  pounds'at  Grand   Forks.    In   December there was a gain of 209,000  pounds over the total of Nove nber,  the output being 3,775,335 pounds,  but this, increase   was   contri iuted  entirely by the Grand Forks smelter,  the   operations   at   Hidden! ��Creek  showing   a   slight   decrease.

Stuart-Whyte's all-star revival  of Leslie Stuart's brilliant musical  comedy success, "JFIorodora," will  be the attraction at thes Miners'  Union opera house tonight.  From end to end of the nineteenth  century the English drama received  no more novel, no more   charming,  and for that  matter,   no  more  important accession than '/Florodora."  It is worth today all the other stage  plays,     opperettas     and     musical  comedies written   in ( England   between the year   1800 and   1916,   if  only Gilbert & Sullivan's two foremost successes be counted out.     It  is a sounder, a more honest  and   a  vastly   more   interesting   piece   of  work    than    any    single     musical  comedy ever  originally   written   in  English,     Moreover its  score   contains some of the best music of  the  best British composers since  Harry  Purcell.    For example:    "Tell   Me  Pretty  'Maiden"    sextette,     "The  Silver Star  of  Love,"~or   "T.ct."  England should be proud  of Leslie  Stuart.     He was the greatest writer  of sweet  song  since   King   David.  But even Stuart has never been able  to compose a second   "Florodora."  Even transplanting the   particularly  palmy first act of the isle of "PJora-  dora" into the big act of,"Havanna"  failed Ki   make  the  latter pie.e  a  dazzling success.    The  music   was  simply- _ot  there,   and  all  of   the  brilliant dialogue in the world > ould  not havt made it a logical successor  to "Florodora," palm  trees,   moonlight bays and all of  the  trappings  Coming Events  _ "Florodora" tonight.

Mr. Miller said that this bill had  been conceived upon the idea that it  was the duty of every legislative  body to pass legislation which would  be in the interests of the physical,  intellectual and moral well-being of  the people as a whole. In carrying  out that duty no legislation brought  before that House in the past had  been so important as this. It was  well, before considering the nature  of the bill, to recall what the present  conditions were. There were evils  affecting labor in existence which  would be remedied more or Jess by  this act. The existing law was  based on the English common law,  and was, therefore, bound to be defective and did not give the work,  man all the.protection and compensation to which he was entitled.  There were many things to which  the employer could seize upon for  his defence, such as the doctriue of  common employment (the act or  negligence of a fellow employee),  and the mattei of contributory  negligence.  The adoption of the employer."  liability act increased the chances of  the workman recovering to some  extent, but in its working out it had  been found that workmen did not  receive the compensation to which  they were.entitled, or that after they  had been awarded it, little was left  after paying their costs!  ��iLLETT'S  LYE  EATS DIRT  sisted that the greatest care must  be exercised in the selection of these  men. Their choice was just as important as that of a judge, if not  more so, and the work should be ah  incentative to any man to give of  the very best in him. The government would have to guard against  the danger of appointing men who  would not be able to forget politics,  which would be a serious mistake.  Mr. Miller paid a tribute to the  work of the committee which recently went into this question, and  referred to the report made by its  members and the bill now before the  Caught the Train for Trout  To secure information, upon the  working out of-, compensation laws  fels~ewhere,< the government _ had  a^pointed'a royal commission,, but  its���powers 'were'; wide^&n_f\ covered  U .    . ��_ ,z�� <*i \ ..V - st 'ft '���*cJr .. -I Z.   v  m_nv>nlh_rlm_lt. r_ ���__���_>.*������...    .nt____.  was  with as if the accident had happened  within the province.     ,  In the case  of a   workman  permanently   disabled,   he    would   be  entitled   to   compensation   for   the  remainder of his life to the extent of  fifty-five  per  cent,   of his  average  earnings.     The   "waiting   period,"  during which no compensation was  granted is now two weeks,  but   the  commission thought this too   much  of a contribution from the workman  and cut the   period   down   to   three  days.    Any worker whose disability  lasted over three days would, therefore, be   entitled   to  compensation,  but during the   three   days  he   was  entitled    to    medical     attendance.  Where there was  facial   disfigurement there might be allowed a lump  sum in compensation.  Employers* were benefitted in that  they werVrelieved   from   exorbitant  damages and heavy law costs,   and  know from year  to  year just   how  much the   matter  of compensation  would require   them v to   pay   out.  The.employees, on the other  hand,  knew absolutely that they were sure  of compensation   without  cost   and  knew just what they would get.  -  .An important principle of the bill  had to do with.medical aid. It had  often happened that for lack of  medical attention or first aid at the  nroment of. the accident, Workers  had lost their lives or suffered dts-  abilityl,-or loog��f periodsyofj illness.  The board, "would, have control,? of  this and .would>nave^authority to  pfovuie-'' medical/' ' surgicalJ-'./fericI  House as a jproof of the zeal and  faithfulness they' had- shown. It  was possible some - small changes  might be found advisable in committee of the whole, but it was sig-  nificentin favor of tb���� bill that there  were no complaints made regarding  it from either employers or workmen.

Simpson,      editor     and  manager of the Victorian,   has  de-  c:ded-to give up the ghost as far as  publication   of  that journal    goes.  Technical-trouble   arose   over   the  matter   of  telegraphic   service   for  Monday morning, and without capital to meet the emergency, the publication succumbed.     "Dad" writes:  "We have never been   a   quitter,  nor have we  ever   had   a  lingering  love for a quitter.     There are times-,  however,   under   certain   conditions  and circumstances, when   a   quitter  who quits at a time   when   quitt.ug  is   amply   justified,   displays    both  judgment     and     discretion.     That  tunc has arrived with the Victorian.  .     .    .     what we have lost   will   be  entered   upon   the   ledger   of   hope  that is not buried   but   slumbering.  We quit with a   kindly   feeling   toward all."  The editoi ot the Victorian is not  the only   man   who   put   his   hard-  earned money into   a   coast   publication only to see it pass away like  a spring zephyr.     Time   after  time  members of the Fourth Estate   and  exponents of the   Art   Preservative  of Arts  ventured   down   where   the  iron horse goes down to the sea  to  drink  and   embarked   in ^business.  A spirit of commercialism ruled   the  cities of sorrow whose destinies they  tried to mould.    Perhaps   no   other  enterprise   exemplified     more    the  truth ofthe saying, "Man made the  cities and  God  made   the  towns,"  than that ofthe newspaper publisher.  The virtue of honosty therein was a  J dations many chances were m  improve the bill.  The basis principles of the bill  were that the workman- was entitled  to compensation from the industry  in which he was employed, and that  he was entitled to it without cost or  litigation. It would eliminJite all  question as to who was to blame,  and the elimination of all litigation  would lead to better feelings between  employers and employed. It would  lead to every workman and those  dependent upon, him a feeling of  security that whatever might happen  to him in the chances of human  existence, he and they would be  provided for.  The  section   betting  forth   what  indurtries and trades the act  would  apply to was very  exhaustive,   and  it included two never before covered  by a similar act���the men employed  in   civic   police and   fire    brigades.  The board was  given  a   wide  discretion in   deciding   what   class,   an  industry came   under.     In   addition  to    farm    laborers    and    domestic  servants, to  whom   the, act   would  not apply, it would not affect   those  engaged    in     electrical,     pursuits,  travelling salesmen, members of the  employer's family  and   outworkers.  It was provided that in the case of a  workman killed  or  injured   outside  the province while on   the   business  of his employer, it   would   be   dealt  I jing!

The system of assessment on the  employers adopted was that known  as the capitalized system, whereby  there would be assessed annually an  amount on" each .industry sufficient  to meet the cost of compensation in  the year before. This system had  been decided to be the fairest and  most satisfactory. The employers  -would be expected to retain from  the wages of each man one cent a  day for the medical fund and pay  this over when he paid his assessment.  M question which had to be  considered was that   of whether   there  should be absolute   state   insurance  or whether the insurance companies  now operating should be allowed to  take part in the business of insuring  the employers against compensation  for accidents.     The decision of the  commission    that    state    insurance  alone should be the principle adopted  was one that would 'meet   with   the  approval of the House, and   it   was  borne out by the experience   in   the  U. S.     In Ohio it cost less than ten  percent, to administer the system of  state insurance, but it cost   40  per  cent, with the   casualty  companies.  In Wisconsin it t-ost $2 07 to collect  $1,   while   in   Oregon   it   cost    but  $1.13, a saving to the Oregon employers of $351,522 in   one  year   in  premiums.  A most commendable feature of  the act was that dealing with accident prevention, the board being  given wide powers to make inquiries,  appoint committees, supply information to employers and workmen,  distribute bulletins and make such  rules and regulations as would lend  to prevent accidents.
