As   a  prominent  mining man said   the  olher  day   lo  a  Miner reporter:    -Suppose a man Willi  a small   capital,   say   $10,000.   owns a  mine, and suppose  that  it   <'i'-'5's  bun  him GlO.OOO  a    month   to   operate   it,  four-fifths of tins" ammiiil  may  saielv  be put down to wages, sei Ins  pay   ro  ainoutits lo SS.000 a iniiiith.

This  sbo.vs  how easilv an advance in w.iges.wbte.b  some consider  trivial,   can   convert a  handsome dividend inn*  a subslaiitial  loss."  The*'Nelson Tribune ���������annouiu'es that  lbe iiianagers of llie mining companies,  whose head or operating ollices are in  Nelson, met Friday afternoon in secret  session to e-eui.-ider the eight licnu- law,  which is to be. enforced, anil unanimously ele'C'ieled thai they would pay  miners tin tie dollars per- elay e.f eight-  li'eiins. They n.l-*<> decided thai '' tlll?  mineis wuufil nol"work fia'that. wage  the mines in their charge would be  closed down indefinitely.  A New Deliver special says: Great  surprise is felt here at the ..nnoune-e-  ment in uiining circles thai the eight,  hour law will be enforced. If is fe.l  Unit, only harm will come to the  country on account of such foolhardy  legislation. A meeting of mine  owners will be held on Alonday even-  in" to settle the quest ion.

Al.P.P..  of  Rossland, was  iu   Nelson   ye-hlerday,   says  the Tribune.    He  repents  business  in  his town very good  and   that, l.here is  not likelv   to   bo   any   elistni bance   ol  husiiiess through   lhe  enforcement of  ilu* eight hour law.       It  has   been   on  trial   for  n   month   in   the   mines at,  Rossland, and while Iheaetual tonnage  mi'neel   nf the  different  mines  is  not  definitely   known,    it   is   claimed   by  those   in   a   position   to   have   fairly  accurate information that the oul put  per    man   working   eight   hours  has  been as large as it was tier  mini   whe'ii  lhey winked len bonis.     Al. Rossland  the'iniiiing is nearly  all  done  by  machine   drills.   I here   being   few   hand  di illers employed.    The rate of  wages  is $:i.S0 per day for iiiachino  men  nud  S2f_)foi-  muckers.     Mr.  Martin  says  that   notwithstanding   all   repoilH  lo  the contrary, the legislation was asked  for by the liien working in the uii'lal-  lifci'iiiiH  mines,   and   lhal   lhey  have  elcmiiucli'd llml the law be enforce-el.

Mr.   Fielding's       bill   wliich   deals
with     tho   affairs    and   management
of   benevolent  insurance   associations
has aroused a good deal  of comment
among the different friendly societies
and it a    question whethei-    many of
ilieni will iind it convenient to come
under  its   verysirlci   provisions.   The
system   adopted   by    these     societies
has  become  very  popular in  Canada
and has been largely availed of by the
less   wealthy       classes.       There   is,
therefore, a two  fold reason  for Hiving   them   all   the   guarantees   which
the  law  can   safely  provide.      Much
of tho bill deals with lhc mode of obtaining   federal   registration,   and   for
informins  members  of  registered associations   o:   their     responsibilities.
The main  provision  is  in   clause  -0,
and   is  adopted   from   the  act  iiieor-
Doratiug the Ancient Order ol* Foresters,   passed   last  year.      It   provides
for  the  creation  by  every -registered
society,  subject  to  the  provisions  of
the   r.ct.   of  a  reserve   fund   for . ihc
protection   of   policy   Holders.       This
reserve .fund   "shall   never ' be   less
than  the' reserve  or reinsurance value of such policies or contracts, conir
puted according to the standard provided for  in      the" . Insurance act���
everv  such   policy   ov   contract  being
regarded, for the purposes      of such
computation, as a level premium con-
t_aci���  and   such      reserve   shall   be
and   charged   as   a   liability   against
tho  society,   and  such fund   shall   be
the property  of,  and be  held,  maintained  aud  administered  for  the  exclusive use and benefit of the holders
o��  such policies or      contracts      and
their  beneficiaries."
The clause further provides that
every society registered must keep
separate accounts of tho busiuess
done before and after the issue of
the certificate bringing it under thc
act. it must also keep separate accounts of each branch of its insurance, and must make a return to the
superintendent of its business annu-
' ally, or whenever required by him.
Another subsection empowers the
superintended or his officers to ex-
ety, all the books, vouchers, etc., and
afford facilities for examining theni.'
From this it -vill be seen that the
asociation which avails itself ot
the provisions of tho act puts itself
practically on the same basis as a
stock company, -. and would have
either to increase its rates or the
number of its assessments lit order
to provide tho necessary reserve. Although in some cases such a cour_e
would involve inconvenience if nol
loss of membership, still the greater
sc-:-_rky offered by the reserve fund
would represent value for the higher
assesdinem. With _uch a rc-.f-i-iu
.'und as is proposed the members
would be secured against losses
j- caused by any increasing mortality
liabilities owing io absence of young
members, and this fact will, no
uoutn. have the effect of indue*in*.;
the stronger _-ocie-tie__ to put thein-
Ff-lv.*.-s under the act. The bill lur.v-
cver t\tj;:S not make it compulsory
on   ali   friendly   societies.

Fielding inado his budget speech this

yonr will be, according to Fielding's
showing $'1.1)00,000 and Increase to
debt ��1,G00.000. Speaking of Yukon administration he said that dur-
ng the ten months of this year thc
cost was $1,1-16,000 and tho revenue
only $795,00. He finished up with
a note of warning. This was a
time of groat prosperity and the
pendulum .might soon swing the
othei- way': Not every year would a
finance minister be able to make such
a showing as ho had made. AVo
could not always have good crops

McQUEEN, EDMONTON  ELECTED MODERATOR  "*A_  DIVISION&OF   KAMLOOPS  PRESBYTERY���������HOME MISSIONS  From Our Special Repr������_enta*iY������  The Synod ��������� of British Columbia of  the PrcBbyterian church In Cuunda  a*et pn "Wednesday morning In Knox  church. Thrity-flvo minis?).-j nnd  elders representing flvo Presbyteries  from Vancouver Island to Maple  Creek and Swift Current, were present.  Previous to the meeting of the  Synod, the Presbytery of Calgary  held a short session. Commissi m-  ���������rB to tho general assembly were appointed aa follows: Rev. Jno. A-  Grant, Maple Creek; Rev. J. A. Morrow, Medicine Hatr Ror. Chas. Mo-  Klllop, Loth linage, minsters; and  Messrs Cousins, Medicine Hat; Ter-  rol, Hamilton aud Cecil, Maple  Creek, elders.  - Tho Presbytery agreed to the application for grant made . by the  Maple Creek congregation " to the  Church ^nd   Manse, Building fund.  The presbytery then adjourned to  meet again* before the close of the  Synod meeting.  At 10 o'clock thc regular meeting  of tSynod commenced. The retiring  Moderator, Rev. J. Knox Wright of  Chilliwack,' li. C, conducted the  opening devotional services. 'j -e  60th chapter of Isaiah was read, and  appropriate   hymns   sung.  Mr. "Wright chose as the text of  his sermon tho woll known words  of the 8th Psalm, "Wbiu is man that  Thou art mindful of him?" He  pictured in graphic language the  ��������� foelings that the great power and  > beauty of nature aroused, in the  breast of tho Psalmist. He saw in  it all the - unchanging majesty and  might of "Jehovah God. This Psalm  Is thought to bo one of tho night  songs of David... Wo can" Imagine him  eltting beneath tho wonder,' .-magnificence and beauty of the starry  heavens. These point on to the living presence beyond. " They are-only  pa rts of his .ways, whose living life-  giving presenco prevades all things.  Then comes the "feeling of his own  weakness nnd flnitude, "What Is  man that .Thou are mindful of  him?" But more wonderful to him  is that creator knowledge that ' the  God whose ways Rre everlasting  does think, and caro for (man. - And  so his question" receives a new-  significance in that it seeks a true  estimate of man In tho mindfulness  of God. *  Tho preacher theu established in  a strong and forcible way* his main  ���������home that man in the purposo and  under lho government of God Is a  great possibility. -Man was create*  in the imago of God, with a nature  capable ot reverence and lovo and  fitted for .wise and- loyal service.  Endowed with the faculty of reason,  of moral choice, born with tho etor-  nal in his soul, man was in a very  "real Bense 'made ln the likeness of  his Maker.  Then sin entered the world ;ind  marred but did not destroy the imago of God in man. It la of man  fallen, then, of man in 6in, that the  question is asked. "What is man that  Thou art mindful ot him?" God  did not cast man off forever. The  Image of God is not lost but marred.  ..God ,.ls. .mightier _than. sin nnd . his  abounding, grace can yet pardon and'  restore. Man fallen and dead In sin  ia the great possibility In the hands  of God. Let love reach down and  there Bhall b������ restoration, harmony  and peace. Tha light of the glory of  God seen in the face of Jesus Christ  .was that restoration, that harmony  and peace. -  This mindfulness* of God, Mr.  Wright went on to show, Is fitted to  fill man with love to and trust in  Qod. Our lives aro spent amid seemingly blind forces that are ueyond  control. Our -needs and aspirations  remain in large , part unsatisfied.  Temptations, cares and sorrows beset us on all Bides. How blessed  then the assurance that God is mindful of us, that his lovo is ever going  out towards us, that his heart is ever  stirred to pity even those who resist his will. The ground of this  love, 60 large and generous and constant. Is not any worthiness in man,  but God's infinite, unbounded love  "who sendeth his rain on the just  and on the unjust." .  The preacher closed witK a stirr-  i_. gappeal to those whose privilege it  is to proclaim this lovo, to strive  after a fuller love of God's lovo in  Christ and to a greater ..eal in His  service. "Thus through all eternity  we shall go on learning God's answers to tho question, 'What is man  that  Thou  art  mindful  of him?'."  At 11:45 the court was constituted  With prayer by  the Moderator.  Rev. J. A. - Logan," clerk of Synod,  call tho roll.

Neilson, Calgary.  .The retiring Moderator thanked  tho Synod for tho honor done him  by elocting him to the Moderator's  chair and thanked tho members for  tho kindness and courteBy shown  him while in office and asked them  to elct a new Moderator.  The name of Rev. D. G. McQueen  of Edmonton wai proposed by Rev.  J. C .Herdman, and Mr. McQuoon  was unanimously chosen to fill the  chair. Tho onw Moderator briefly  and modestly thanked *hls brethren  for  the honor  dono  him.  Tho committee ot bills and overtures reported regarding tho hours'  and ordor of buslnoss, and tho Synod  adjourned to meet again at 2.30 p.m.  On Wednesday afternoon Mr. McQueon, the Moderator, constituted tho  court with prayer.  Prior to tho arrival of the j clerk,  who was unavoidably detained, an  informal discussion of the overture  to divide the Presbytery of Kamloops wa_ ^commenced. Rev.R.Frew  of Nelson- strongly favored the proposal.  Tho clerk having now arrived,  business was taken up in the regular  order.  The report .of the committee on  Home Missions was first called for.  Rev. E. D. MacLaren, of Vancouver,  the convener, presented the', report.  Tho amount voted for missionary  work in this synod for the year Just  closed-was .$18,000. .This year'- the  Assembly's committee Is to, be asked for $20,000 and will likely grant  it. The committee' deplored the fact  that so little hud been done by congregations in  the Synod itself in the  cause of jHome Missions. .' While  the Synod received from the Assembly $6,000 for-the year'1897, the  amount contributed by our own congregations was only $1396. The committee recommended that li letter be  printed and circulated among th'e  ministers and;- missionaries in the  bounds of Synod, calling their attention to tho lack of interest shown in  this work,and asking them to collect  for this fund by personal-'aanvass.  The report was'received land'adopted.  Report of Synod Treasurer, read  by Rev. A. Forbes, showed that disbursements ,forr printing, etc. had  been . more than met by contributions   from   congregations.  The division of Kamloops- Presbytery then came up again * for . discussion. The overture . claimed that  tho Presbytery is too large,to work,'  and that If divided," woultl make two  large. Presbyteries. Rev.A.D.Men-  zies of Kaslo spoke in favor of the  division and- asked the Synod to endorse the overture. The new Prosby-  tory will take" In the southern part  of tho present Presbytery .including  the towns, etc., on the Crow's Nest  railway ��������� as far west as Pentlncton.  Rev. "J. .A. Wright moved that the  overture bo accepted and transmitted to tho Assembly with the cordial  approval of tho Synod, and,that Rev:  McQueon und Rev.Gallup support the  overture at tho Assembly meeting In  June.        - * ,.<  An. overturo from tho Prosbytory  of Victoria regarding the'.treatment  and training of Indians on' tho west  sido of Vancouver Island, was read'  by Row A. B. Winchester of Victoria. After considerable dlBcuosion  tho overturo was transmitted to the  General Assembly.  -.A letter from Rov. Dr. Robertson,  superintendent of Home Missions  was read in which he expressed his  regret, at not being ablo to bo present  Rev. ,1. Knox ,Wright moved that*  the Moderator appoint a .committee  to draft resolutions to be inserted in  the minutes expressing regret for the  death of the late Dr. King, and that  a copy be sent to the-faculty of Manitoba college. <  Tho meeting adjourned at 5 p.m.  to meet again at 8 p. m.  A meeting of the Synod'of British  Columbia was hold last evening to  which tho public were invited. ��������� A  large number" of citizens wore present.  The Moderator, Mr. 'McQueen, pro-  sided and Introduced the subject of  discussion for 'the evening by reading a letter from,.the superintendent  of  homo  missions',   Dr. -Robertson.  Addresses wero delivered on the  snbject of home missions by Revs.  Reid, of Vancouver,- Atkinson of lnnisfail, Vetter, of Josephsburg, Menzles of Revolstoko and Morrow of  Mcdlclno Hat. The addresses were  listened to with" great interest by  thoso present. . The meeting was  brought to a close by the Moderator's  benediction.  The Synod of British Columbia  held two sederunts .Thursday. In the  morning two interesting and important reports  were presented.  The first, on Sunday school work  presented by Rev. J. A." Logan, of  Eburne, shewed that there are now  within the bounds of the Synod __4  schools, an increase of 20 over the  number last year. The' number of  scholars is 6420. and of teachers 745  an Increase' over last year of 1268.  scholars and 133 teachers.  The convenor pointed out that  nearly all the papers used in thc  schools are published ln -the .United  States, and, besides having sometimes  features of which" he could not approve, did not stimulate in our young  peoplo a patriotic spirit toward their  country  and'church.  The report recommended that the  "Homo Study" series of Lesson  Helps bo used, and that a greater effort be made to Interest our young  people in the schemes of the churcb.-  The report on Young People's societies was prosented by Rev. W. B.  Cummings, 'Of- Nanaimo. He stated  that wo have' within the bounds of  the Synod 37 Young People's societies, a gain  of 5 over last year.  At the afternoon sederunt. Rev.  Mr. I.tndo addressed tho Synod on  the work he is doing among the  Scandinavians of Alberta. Ho said  the number of these peoplo ln the  Territories wus over 3000 and that  they are anxious to learn everything  whlrii   wuuld  make  them  good citi  zens of Canada and are particularly"  grateful to the church for sending  them  a minister of the gospel  One   of  tho   most   pleasing  events  of the day was the drive to the Gen- ;���������  eral  hospital   and    Indian  Industrial I  school.   A number of cltlzene kindly j  placed their carriages at tho disposal !  of tho Synod and a large numebr- of \  the ministers  and  others  partook' of  the opportunity to see  tho  city and :  surrounding  country.   -They   all   ex- j  pressed themselves as delighted with  the drive and especially pleased with  the  Indian  school,      and   Its  gentlemanly  principal,  Rev. Mr.  Hogbln.  Tho public meeting ln the evening  was ��������� well attended and proved to be  porhaps thc most Interesting " and  stimulating meeting of the kind over  held ln this place. The subject of  discussion was "Christianity In Its  Relation to Social witt'-iions," and  was ably and entertainingly discussed from different polntB of view.  Rev. 13. D. Maclaren commenced the  discussion with a speech of much  power anil force of thought and  beauty of expression. Tho duty of  tho pulpit, Mr.Maclaren' Bald,was the  preaching of the gospel, but the gospel is a wide term.' It means man's  personal relation to , U12 eterne-i  and unseen. It has for Its object the  establishment on earth of the kingdom  of  God.  Personal spiritual blessing is not  the, only or highest end of the gospel'. True spirituality can only be  for the Individual,,-.when he revsuls  himself  rightly to : his fellotvmen.  It has been ,and often rightly,  charged of the church of Christ that  it has failed to lay sufficient emphasis on this fact. It has been so impressed . with the awf i!ni*=s and  greatness of God that it has of'en  been out of touch with the problems  that have been agitating "the great  heart of the world. Thus social reformers have accused the church of  being either selfishly indifferent to  the needs of the world or helpless in  the face of evils for which it i-an  provide no remedy.        ,  Too great emphasis, the -p.akor  claimed had been laid on e:.*naiu  social questions, e.g., amusements, by  Christian .people, while in many cast's  little or no attention had 'been given  to the great problems, social, political and industrial, with wiiich  men outside the church have been  dealing.  Is the church to - hav������ a message  for these men Is it, as the Chur :h  of Christ, to take no part in tnese  questions which ar.e now pressing  forward for. an answer. We .n "ihe  AVest "have questions of this kind to  answer.       One   Is      the   question   of  Sabbath observance. Every man  has a right to his day of rest, r.r.d  ���������only can that day be kept as a hoii-  elay when It Is kept as' a holy -day  by all men.  ~ What again are we doiug to raise  tho standard of political morality?  We will never have political purity-  until men condemn tho sins not of  their' political enemies but of their  political   friends. .  ��������� The question too of taxation is one  with which Christian people should  be conversant. Is-,our Bystem the  best? Does the burden, of ta-cation  rest most heavily on the shoulders  ot those best able to bear It? These  are questions we must strive to answer. ��������� .,    -  Corporations, government control  of railways, child labor, ruinous  wages, shorter hours of labor, ��������� these  are all questions now.calling for an  answer. .   -  Wo arc never. Bald Mr. Maclaren,  going to bring about the millenlum  by any cf the panaceas now presented. The salvation of the world lies  now where' it always has lain, in the  gospel of Jesus. Tho sermon on the  mount points out at once tho ruot ol  ail our social evils, the heart of "man  self centred,' unloving, confined to  the narrow circle' of our own b&l-  vatlon.  We need men of spirituality, we  need also men of wide outlook and  broad sympathy to whom these great  questions are not tho ravings of ignorant mem, but the.cry of .the world  for right and justice. We Have, as"  Christian people, the' right and duty  to pray that man to man the world  over may "brothers be and a' that."  * Tl.e Rev. K. B. Cummings, " -of  Nanaimo, followed with a brief and  pointed address. He spoke of the  deep Interest social problems were  now arousing in the minds" of men.  In tho last year 440 books and 540  magazine articles had been written  on social questions. What is the  church to do? It has often been  charged with favoring the rich and  ignoring the poor. For this reason  many of the latter will, and justly,  have nothing to do with the "church.  We cannot redeem men with soup  kitchens  and      orphanages. Men  want justice, not, charity. A new  brotherhood, founded on Christ'B  gospel, In which all are members of  Christ's household, that is what is  necessary. Here lies the cure for all  the  Ills that flesh  is  hoir to.  James Short of Calgary agreed  with the first speaker that-the church  had a- good work to do in .this connexion. He shewed the distinction  between tho ancient laws of the Israelites and that of Christ. The  former had said, "That shalt not,"  but Christ, "Thou shalt." His com-  mandB were positive. "Love thy neighbor as thyself" waa the best of all  laws. ' When wo construct laws  on the basis of this one.wew 111 need  no laws. What we as Christian people should do is to bend all* our efforts to bring about as far as we  are able, this greatest piece of legislation. Rev. R. Frew of Nelson, remarked that the book having the  largest circulation today is Sheldon's  "In His Steps," which attempted ������>  apply Christianity to the social evils  of the day. Mr. Frew did not agree  with those who gay that the church  has been blind to the rights of men.  In ages ln which men's eyes were  blind to any rights but their own,  tho church had been the friend of  men and had stood at the back of  all efforts to ameliorate the conditions of the poor and weak.  Wo are not to follow Jesus literally. We are not to copy his acts,  but to assimilate his character. The  Socialist says we are to copy Christ  literally. Should we do so?No, we  arc to have Christ's character. Wc  arc to imitate the sweet reasonable  ness of Jesus. Ho was not a social  agitator, or a communist, but one  who sought to make us more manly,  more sympathetic, bettre citizens,  wiser members of our community.  Mr. Frew's remarks wero bright  and  humorous   throughout.  One of the pleasing features of  the evening's discussion were the remarks of F. Macdouaia of Calgary  who spoke from tho workman's  standpoint. He said he regarded this  meeting as one of the. evidences of  the church's sympathy with tho  worklngman. He was proud to stand  on, thc platform as a working, man,  and moro proud to feel that his hearers were lnsympathy with his class.  Mr. Macdonald then went on lo  speak of the hardships of tho laborer  In this country caused especially by  tho Introduction of new machinery  nnd the present system of immigration.  The question ot wages . was one  that wo should be interested' in. Does  the laborer receive a fair remuneration for the work he does? Arc  thero laws to amcliorato the wants  of the poor? There are laws, he salel  to provide for the vices of the rich,  but are there any to provide for thc  needs of the deserving poor Oue of  the evils of the day was that tho  wealth of the -world was drifting into the hands of the few, while the  many suffered. Mr. Macdonald closed by saying that ho was not a socialist but a believer in the equality  of man under the government of  the God of love. ' Mr.' Macdonald's  remarks were listened to with close  attention and called forth a well-  merited   applause.        '   ���������  ,Rev. A. R. Grant of Pincher Creek  said thore were no social questions  where he came from. No poor people were living in  his  district.  Carlyle, he said was criticized in  his day because he -put all his force  against the productive system then  commencing. We have gone on to  the bitter end In this system and have  come to see its evils with Carlyle.  But we cannot, as ho advocated, go  back to the golden days of the past.  We must go on-and find our Uiuyia.  ahead, in the fuller conception of  God fatherhood and man united son-  ship.  We cannot make men righteous  by acts of parliament. The "only  way to accomplish this is love to  Christ anel the keeping of his commandments. Then anel only then,  will the master treat his servants  aright and the servant render the  master his due.  Mr. Grant closed by a -reference to  the question of Immigration. We  must resist all efforts to swamp our  young country with poor and unprofitable   immigrants.  Rev, A. B. Winchester closed the  discussion with a brief and stirring  appeal for the rights, of man. The  church, he said, while not. using tne  set-terms employed by Socialists, etc,  has always been the Instrument of  bringing men; to their rights.  Single" tax;wil not save nmuRind.  A greater evil than the monopoly of  land, is the capitalist who does not  own a foot of land but who controls  millions   of  dollars.  The foundation, the top and root  of the whole social question is man.  Whatever will help mm to grow  more a mnn, as God intended him to  bo, that is his right. It. is' the inalienable right of man' to protect  himself from what will pollute and  Injure his spiritual life. But ��������� by  what right can wc . keep out ono  who comes among us to work simply  because  of  the  accident of  birth?  Mr. Winchester, who is missionary  to the* Chinese on the.coast, made a  magnificent appeal for "the-rights of  the Celestials. Let any man, he" said,  come amongst us that is a man. Let  qualifications and character stndn  as our test and not tho mere accident of birth. Neighborliness means  not lovo to a certain section or,.rue  or color, but must be determine.! according to the needs of the mau next  you", for God hath made of ono blood  all the nations of the world.
