The   mine   owners   will  not  give more thnn 83 for an eight hour  shift and the miners will not. take less  than 83.50.     In  Rnssliinil,  wbe.re  the  mine  owners   have-,   been   giving  the  eight hour shift, a trial at, the eild  rate  of wages   for  some   time   past,   it  is  reported   lha1   the:   results   have  tint  been satisfactory to the*, owners.   The'  situat.ieui   is" one  of extreme! gravity,  and the only solution  appears to be in  a mutual undci'standing between  the'  mines and the owners.   Unfortunately  it dues not look as if any such  understanding is likely.  It, fact, union men,  which probably  includes lime tenths  of   the   men   who are     wni'th   their  sail as  miners,  are   prohibited   from  working   for less  than  S",50 for  the  etighr,   hour   shift,   a   rate  which-the  owners     have      pledgeel    themselves  together not to give.   Now it is very  well saying that the.  miners  have  as  much   right  to   biuil   themselves   to  demand   83.50    as   the   mine  owners  have to  bind ��������� themselves to offer  no  more than 83.00.   It   is  undoubtedly  true tli.'in they have.    But it is  most  unfortunate that nn attempt should  have  heen  made   lo   arrive   al some  understanding   hefore  this    pledgitig  took place.*'   lt appears, however, that  11 chance  still  remains for an  escape,  out of the difficulty by an  agreement,  on   the   price   of   board,    which   has  always been 87 per week,     lt   is   sincerely to he heiped that some arrangement will be  arrived at on  this  basis  by which  such a catastrophe to  lhe  province as the general  eltisins_r down  of the Slocan mines will be prevenfed.  This   present    season   opened  with  promises   fni-   a   banner  year in   the  history of Kootenay.    The prospects  were of a very large increase of output  of considerable investment of capital  and   development   of new properties  and of a consequent largo increase nf  business anel general prosperity.    But  if the mini's close eleiwn  we  may  bid  enodhye lo all the'se hemes ami prepare  fnrdultioss anel stagnation. ' The busybody legislators who preferred to force  the eiulit. Imur system by law,  inslead  of leaving the question to. work  itself  out liel'weeu the owneu-s .and the  men.  will find   themselv. s   wiih  a   grievous  responsibility on their shoulders.    Th"  principle nf llie- oiirlif- hour  law   is  all  "���������   licbt.    Tin'1Ikrat.ii does  not believe  thai,   anybody   should   work    ,und<>r-  gi-oniiel at, minim; for more  than e-igbl  bonis a I >i slie-le-ii. or in  fact"!" that,  he  fin tin geioel work  for  a longer   time.  But lhat deie>._ not excuse', the  irnvern-  nii'iit    feir   the   cari'less   precipitation  with which the'v launched  a   measure  sn .subversive nf  former'conditions on  the country.

T. S. Wnlcott was in freun the .St.  Leeni Hot, Springs this week. "IIt*  intends to put up another bath houic  at the springs on the mountain for the  use of ladies with a sponge bath. He  will also put on a four-wheeled rig to  run from the lake shore to the springs.  At the lake he will erect, a pavilion  with 11 gooel floor to serve for dancing  or othei' amusement for parties camping at. the lake eltu-ing the season. The  present aceonmioelation at Lhis favored  spot has been taxeel to its utmost  capacity during the winter. Mr. Wol-  coft also cnnteinplat.es putting a sailboat on the lake large enough to  accommodate eight or ten p-issengers.  for the use of visitors.  The attractions of this charming  place will no doubt make it, rns usual,  the principal resort, feir summer  camping parties from Revelsleike lhis  season. It. may not be generally known  to lovers of the. piscatorial art that the  creek which empties into the hike al  this point is one of the finest fly fishing  waters in the ' province, and good  fishing can also be got from a boat in  the hike. The scenery is of remarkable loveliness even iu this lane! of  scenery. The. green valley opening on  to the. clear waters of the. lake. The  rapid mountain torrent rushing down  through beautiful woods and winding  among the hills in the 'background.  The little nooks in the fore-t deep in  moss rantl ferns and bright with  myrhids of wild flowers. The solemn  pine and cedar woods with their cool  stillness and health-giving fragrance.

PIHGST0N_ CREEK  Remarkable Surface Indications ot an  Immense Body of Gold Bearing Iron  Ore.���������Prospects of the Coming Season  One of the most extraordinary out-  croppings of gold bearing iron nre is  Found on Pingston creek, opposite the  St. Leon Hot Springs, on the Arrow-  Lake. The ledge, which is tliirtv feet  wide in places, can be distinctly traced  for 12 miles clear across the mountain,  and one ear. walk on it for at least six  miles without any break or hindrance.  About thirty claims have been staked  nut on the leelge. Five nf these have  been grouped teigether as the Exe-elsinr  group hy T. S. Wolcot.t. tine of the  original elisceiverers. About seventy  feet; oF, prospecting operations have  been done on the group, the principal  work being a tunnel run in on the  ledge for 45 feet, which is all in clear  nre-, which is rapidly changing wilh  depth from a magnetic iron nre to a  pyi'i-hotite. There are several thnus-  anel tons of ore1 nn the dump taken out,  while running this tunnel, whicli an  aerial train eif easy construction would  take Li the lake in four miles. Mr.  Wolcott will continue work on the  lunnel this season.  Acrn.-s the summit is another group  of claims known as lhe Empiess.  owned by Symons & Poupore of  Nakusp. on which considerable prospecting lias.been done, lhe main work  being a creisscut to catch the vein,  which the owners will continue this  season.        -     -       ">  This remarkable ledge, which so far  is the onlv one discovered nn the  mountain, .has a trend from east to  wi'st."

The Last Chance woulel probably have shut, down sunn for a short  while 1111 account of water in any case,  bur, on account of trouble with ihe  men it would like the others remain  closeel indefinitely. Mr. Macdonald  reported also that the miners were  now leaving the Slocan by everv tr.iin  and many of thi .11 were going to the  Coeur d'Alenes ������to take the place of  those union men who recently were  forced to quit the country.���������Nelson  Miner.  c_b_s__b~d  THE STANDARD GROUP  THE PREMIER PROPERTY  THE STANDARD BASIN  OF  CRAHD SHEW1HQ OF COPPEffORE  Bonded to the Boston and British Columbia Copper Mining and Smelting  Co. for $65,000 Work will be Commenced at Once with a Large Force  to Develope these Claims.

A WESTERN ROMANCE  Another novel oft Canadian North  West life has just beon issued from  the press of a British ' publishing  house. lis author is Mr. John  Mackie, whose reputation as a clever  creator of prairie romances is founded  on two previous, stories cast in a  similar mould���������"The Devil's Playground" and "Sinners' T.wain." both  of which gavo interesting glimpses  of life as it Is lived in thc North  "West Mounted police.  The new story appears with the  title o������ "Tho Prodigal's Brothor" and  is dedicated "to my old comrades hy  the camp fires in the land of the blood  red sunsets." The sceno is laid at  Calumet (presumably Mcdicino Hat)  on tho banks o������ tho Saskatchewan  and in the hills to thc south, near the  Old Pert Walsh and Macleod trail.  The principal characters are Ruth  Macdonald, a charming society bello  from Ottawa; her father, who has  been sent out to the North Wost to  report on tho restless- condition of  the Metis; tho Prodigal, Steve Ironside, a young scamp .'whose faults are  all ou tho surface' and -who at heart  turns out to bo a man* and a gentleman; and the Prodigal's'brother, Paul,  a self-made, self-satls'fieu. highly respected merchant,'a pillarc of * the  church and a prospective candidate  tor legislative honors...  "While the author has in some of  his exciting passages' drawn considerably on a frpi't'ful' imagination and  for the purposes of "his plot has'given  Calumet a ore-railway existence and  made it the birth ' place of his  heroes, he has-given us a well-written  and decidedly, interesting story, not  the least meritorious features of  which aro the graphic.descriptions it  contains of prairie and mountain  scenery. Mr. Macklo and his publishers" are to .bo congratulated on the  result of their combined efforts.  A    Californian    says    thc    Marks   on  Tickets  Describe Customers  "Most pooplo suppose," said an ox-  Californlan, "that tho vertical row of  hieroglyphics on a Chinese laundry  check nre merely so many numerals.  As a matter of fact, thoy are nothing  of the kind, but constitute a brief and  spicy description of the individual  who left the bundle. If you will  take tho troublo to notice it, you  will see that tho laundrymun always  goes through exactly tho same programme. He takes the packago,  gives you a swift comprohensivo  glance, and then proceeds to decorate  a pleco of rice paper with from two  to live Indian luk chicken tracks,  What he has really written is probably something like this:  " 'Pat foreign elevil who resembles  ������, pig, stpiinty eyes and wart on tho  left side, of his nose.'  "You curry around this flattering  pen portrait, innocently, inin_gining  that il reads: 'No. 4-11-44,' and  when you call for your wash you tvill  tind thai the Chinaman who receives  the ticket will invariably look you  over, making mental comparison  beforo reaching for the bundle. A  Mongolian friend of mine out in  'Frisco put mo on lo the scheme, and  I took the. troublo to ascertain  whether he was telling the truth.  I goi a laundry slip, copied it wilh  microsoplc fidelity and subiuittetl it  to several expert native translators.  Tliey ull agreed lhat ii ran something  like  this:  " 'Ridiculous old man; very pompous;   bald   head      like      a speckled  ess-'  "You will observe thai my hairs  grow rather high on my forehead and  I have a few frecklcs,altliougli nothing  to justify such au Insulting description. However, It proved tho point.  Tho next ticket 1 got declared I waa  'an elderly gentleman resembling Ynu  Tai, thc wind god,' which pleased me  Immensely uutil 1 persuaded a native  curio dealer to show mo a statuette  of tho diety. Then 1 wanted to  murder tlio laundrymau. Tho Chinese, aro a deep people, boys. They  look as demure as guinea pigs, but  all the while thoy are Quietly sizing  us up and having a big laugh In  thoir sleeves." i  Dr. Roddick, M. P. of Montreal.,  who recently visited the wost ln company, with Sir Willian Van Homo,  has been giving his impressions to a  representative of tho Montreal  Gazette. Ho was surprised at tho  rapid growth of tho western Canadian towns since his last visit 10  youra ago. A'ancouver should bo  called Van Home, as it was the president's own creation. Winnipeg, he  thought would be the Chicago of the  Notfh Wost, anel Calgary was destined  to be a largo city.  A big Conservative rally will ne  held In Toronto on June Gth on tho  occasion of decorating the monument  to Sir John A. Macdonald in Queen's  Park. Sir Charles Tuppor, Mr.  'Foster, Sir Mackenzie Bowoll, Mr,  Whitney and possibly Hugh John  Macdouukl will attend.  A travelling observer of stage  events mentions a sign which he saw  in the wings of a Minnesota town  theatre that read: "Don't kick  aboul iho stage boing dirty, or tho  dressing rooms cold, i'or if you wore  Booth or Barrett you wouldn't bo  here."  wkets*.

He is  the hero of the hour In tho great  American republic, and might bo  elected to "the presidency should a  vacancy occur beforo the. present  wave of enthusiasm  subsides.  Admiral Dewey may be a big man  In lhe Slates, but he doesn't amount  to "shucks" round Bobcaygeon  Bven the banquet at ������100 a plato has  .no attractions for tho editor of Tho  Independent, who summarizes the  Dewey situation.as follows:  "Admiral Dewey is coming homo to  the* States, and tho New York council  is to issue bonds for $150,000 to pay  _-tht_���������e_pcnses.of celebrating his . re-  tura. Did you ever hear of such  utter madness?' What In Sara Hill  is to be done? By pre-arrangemeut  and forewarned, he wont into a do-  fenceless harbor, and with a fleet, the  perfection of modem Invention, he  knocked to piecs a' squad of unprepared old tubs that, had uot a gun on  them with -.which ihey could reach  liini. IIo actually called off for an  hour to let his men take breakfast,  and t*n*m resumed tho halting of tho  poor Spanish rats. Courage: Heroism!  Ureal hearenE. It was tho courage  of a giant stopping on a toad, the  heroism of craejkiDE a louse under  the thumb' nail!" And tho poor,  etruggllng masses of New York  must be taxed for S15Q.000 to cejlo  brate such heroism'. A banquet a_  a 1100 a plan.'. A feed and a guzzle,  and a whirlwind of declamation over  such     heroism: Thc     expansion  schemers are playing thc people ior  fools, surely. And tho cat schemers  know what they arc about."  Alonlreal is to have a new monthly  paper called Rod anti Gun in Canada,  the first number of .which will, appear  next week.

According ro news r.-eeiv-.d rec-nily  the boundnr" n:ryt.-y at A:Iin has  just been completed. Tho dividing  line between British Columbia and  the North West ^Territories is about  30 miles^ north of Ailin. and about  two miles south of tbo north end of  the lako. The 8f".h parallel abovo  Surprise lako will be demarcated by  the end of May, and all tho boundaries of the country  established.  An amusing incident arose at the  Regina court houso a few mornings  ago. It appears that * Mr. Justice  Richardson had been less explicit  than usual in delivering judgment in  a certain matter. Each of thc advocates thought he had lost tho case  and they simultaneously applied to  appeal. Explanations lollowed and  onc of the proposed appeals was  quashed on the spot.  According to a letter received from  Atlin under date of May 5th. a large  lead ot- free milling quartz has been  discovered ln that vicinity by a party  of prospectors, including T. H. Jones,  J. E. Phillips, J. Stoker and *W. H.  Moore., -The ore assays close at 5C00  a toti.besides carrying a considerable  percentage of copper and silver, while  the ledge ds 10 feet wide. The find  caused" quite a littlo excitement in  Atlin 'and.a stampede ensued. The  information given out by the prospectors was very meagre, in fact thoy  Tfottld say nothing, simply exhibiting  Stan* very flftb sample'- of ore.  j Willi   apologies   to     The .

They were pioneer editors  of newspapers ln Dakota In tho old  Territorial days. Huntley had just  sold hla newspaper in Bismarck for  ?2,500 cash nnd wus coming east. Ho  and the Major hud oat In muny a quiet  game together, and Huntley went  over to the Major's office to say good,  by and play one last game. Tho Major  produced tho cards, locked tho door,  and the two faced a green table.  Tho Major had the reputation of  being a skilful dealer, and Huntley ���������������  previous experiences had taught him  that cards sometimes appeared tn tho  Major's hand on a show down whoso  legitimate existence could only be accounted for on the hypothesis that  tho age of mirncleB had- not passed.  So ho had fortified himsolf for this  farewell gamo not only with tho $2,500  which hei had received for his newspaper property, but also with four  largo, but not overworked aces.   ���������  There was no limit, but for an hour  tho gamo went along qulotly enough.  The Major was out threo or four hun*  drcd dollars, but as both players remarked, the gamo was "young yet."  At last a jackpot for $60 camo and remained. Back and forth across the  tablo went the deck.- Neither man  could get oponcrs. Each time the deal  passed the pot was sweetened ?_0  At last thero was $380 on the table.  Tho Major dealt. Huntley looked  over his cards and found four jacks.  It seemed to lilm that the timo'had  come to precipitate his four aces into  action. The jacks woro rotired unostentatiously, aud, with a faint���������a  very faint���������shade of disappointment  in  his voice. Huntley  announced:  "I can't break It."  The Major was still examining his  cards with that hesitating air that  soma peoplo always bellove means  'studying out a straight." Finally he  said:  "I'll have to break It for $500. It's  c bi;; pot."  Huntley looked mournful and said-  "I'll stay.     Gimme a card."  "Kono for mo," announced the  Major briskly, as he- throw ovor a  card and laid down, the deck. "I'll  bet. you $500." ���������  "I'll raiso you $500," said  Huntley  "Five hundred . ,moro." said the  Major.  "Wlinn I sat. down," said Huntley,  "I  had  $2,500  in  my pocket. I'll  raisa you the full amount-of thnt on  this ono hand.     If I lose I'm broke."  The Major took another 'look at his  hand and replied:  "I haven't got as much as that in  cash. I'll, make out a bill of sale of  the building and plant, newspaper  aud all, and put that tn the pot. If  you win you can hold it till tomorrow,  when I'll- sottlo.."  "(Jo ahead," said Huntley.  The Major wrote out the . bill of  sale and threw the slip of paper :nto  the pot on top of tho big pile of  greenbacks. Both* men had emptied  their pockets.  "Now I'll call you," said' thc  Major.  * i* ours," said Huntley, nnd he laid'  down his four ono-spots. The Major  never flinched. - Ho examined tho  ace*.;, ono, after another. Then he  laid down/his hand and saiel briefly:  "You win, Stanley. All I had was  four  queens."  The next day tho Major redeemed  his bill of sale and Huntley camo to  Now York and began lo write" tho  "Spoopendyko Papers," whicli <were  first published in the Brooklyn  Engle. He's boon dead for years  now., -  About two years after the famous  peker game Major Edwards was visiting New York and ho looked up  Huntley. * They'-dined togother at tho  Astor House. After coffee and when  tne cigars had been lighted the  Major said: ;  , "Stanley; of course when gentlomen  like you and I play poker together  thero's never,any .question about tho  game being straight. But there's  or.o thing .that's been puzzling mo for  two years, and I want to ask you  about it."  ''Go ahead, Major," said Huntley,  puffing his cigar.  "Stanley, why in the devil did you  refuse to open that last ' jackpot  .w.hon you had four jacks In your  hand?"  "Major," returned Huntley, thoughtfully,  laying down his     cigar, "who"  dealt that last hantl?"    ������  -^Lcild.-.Stanley.^saidaiie-Major =  "Well, then, Major, since four aces  won the pot, how in the devil could  lt have been a straight game?"  "That's so," said the Major, reflectively, "let's get a cab and go to  some theatre."  I  A.

The  work has not yet been begun, but it  is said there is no, doubt that the  scheme will be carried through.  Both the Manchester ship-canal and  tho projected waterway in *��������� Belgium  sinjt into insignificance when compared -with the Russian canal that is  now being built from the Baltic to the  Black sea.

The canal Is being so strongly built  that vessels may steam through it at  the rate of six knots an hour. It will  tako six days for a large vessel to  pass through it, travelling night and  day. The canal is to be lighted  along tho whole course by electricity,  and the total cost is estimated at  about ������24,000,000. * Four years will  ho required to (xnnpletc thc - undertaking.
