Coursier.  gold  commissioner,  has returned from  a  lmtricd  visit to  the lower part of the district.     There  is   trouble   down   there.    At   Button  City 110 appropriations have  been  expended this year, nor have they heard  of   any  that are   going   to   bo,   and  electors are beginning to think that it  is time fora chiinge.    AtFiie Valley  the usual subsidy  of ������1000  for roads  and trails in the settlement has  been  cut, down to $300.    The expenditure of  Ibis money was veiy wisely entrusted  to an ex-commercial traveller in cigars  of the name of Moorhoiw. He laid out  a large amount in powder and steel at  generous prices and  by  ihe   lime his  supplies and gri.-rei-io _ were packed np  to the scene of action only poor $115 or  so remained  to  be  expended   on  the  roads.    Hence the gold cnmmissioiier'.s  visil.    It is said things  took a  lot of  explaining.  A SERIOUS BUSH FIRE-  RAGI2-IG SOUTH   OF TOWN TWO'  DAYS AND NIGHTS.  CLOSE CALL  FOR  THE  MILL-  EDITORS WERE ASTONISHED  EIGHT-HOUR LAW INVALID  Colorado Court Thus  Decides in   Case  Brought by Mining Interests.  Denver, July 17.���������The supreme  court, today unanimously decided the  eight-hour law to be unconstitutional.  The opinion is not yet written, and  will be filed later.  The eight-hour law. which was enacted at a late session of the legislature, applies only to. mines, smelters  and mills for the'reduction of ores.  The refusal of the American Smelting  and Refining Company to'.pay the  same wages for eight hours as had  been paid for ten and twelve hours  caused its smelters to be closed on  June 15, when the new law became  became operative.  This company, wliich is known as  smelter trust, wilj^'.now .endeavor to  reach* an-.agreeinenf.^witli .its ���������former  employees as.to' the'-wages and' hours  of labor, and to reopen its smelters as  soon as possible.  Officers of the Snielternien's Union  say that l'liriiacoiiieri who formerly  worked twelve hours a day, will'work  hut'eight in the future.  John R. Wright,' president of the  Snielternien's Union, was examined at  length today regarding the coiid'itioi'is  prevailing among the smelter workers,  and the causes of the closing of tho  trust snielter by the members of'the  United States industrial commission',  who are holding sessions in this city.  He believed there was no mat ter so  important to laboring men now as'the  eight-hour clay, regardless of questions  of wages and all other considerations.  He said that before thc smelter combination was affected the men never  had any difficulty in dealing with the  managers and obtaining any concessions desired, but now ifc was found  almost impossible to reach those in  authority.  The Glaciers of British Columbia Are  a Revelation to Them.  Glacier. B. 0.. July 10���������Thiee hundred members of the National Editorial Association of the United States  shouted a chorus of \'ahs" and stormed  the great glacier of the Selkirks'at  nino o'clock*yesterday morning.  To be dropped by   the  tr-iin at the  nose of th.) monster ice Niagara in lhe  middle'of July was a revelation wliich  the visitors had scarcely reckoned  upon.      Tliere    were    twelve    Wagner  coaches  full  to  the guards of editors  from the east to  (he'west and, from  [ Minnesota to Mississippi, aod so great  is their enjoyment, of  the scenery in  che Canadian Alps that they have decided  to   push   -slowly    throogh   the  mountains until 'the  eastern  foothills  are reached.    Americans  touring  the  Rockies gave  the   newspaper men  a  rousing welcome upon   their ai rival at  the Glacier.    Today  will   be spent at  Banff Springs iu the Canadian National  Park.     Swiss guides   escorted   small  parties  to  the  foot of the glacier and  beyond.  Cranbrook's First Wedding*.  On Wednesday morning, July 12th,  ISilf), the Presbyterian -church.'d!r������n-:  brook, B.- C. was the "scene , of .a  pretty wedding when Jennie, second  daughter of Major J. Evans, of  Omeniee. Out., was united in the holy  bonds of matrimony to Chas. E. Reid.  formerly of Revelstoke, B. C.  , At S . a. 111., to the strains of  Mendelssohn's Wedding ���������March,  the bride entered the church leaning  on the arm of Mr. W. T. Reid. brother  of the grooui. preceded liv little Tannis  and Ruth Reid strewing flowers.  They were met at the altar bv the  groom, supported by Mr. Cecil jPrest  of Cranbrook. Rev. J. Wood, Methodist minister of Kaslo, B. C, assisted  by Rev. Smith,'B. A., of Cranbrook.  performed the ceremony in the presence of a large number of people.   "  The church was tastefully decorated  by the friends of the young couple,  the bridal party standing beneath an  arch from which was suspended a  large floral bell. After the ceremony  lhe invited guests repaired to the  home of W. T. Reid where a reception  wis held.  The young couple were the recipients  of many beautiful, as well as useful,  presents. Their future home will he  iu Brandon, Manitoba.  Lively Battle With the Flames  Fanned -  By a High  Breeze,  to   Save   Robinson's Mill and Two   Million   Feet  of  Saw Logs.  By   Wednesday aftei noon  last the"  bii. h firo.   which  Marled last Sunday  niglit   from   what   was   Hppurently a  camp fire on the poiut  of the smelter'  Hat.    had   assumed   alarming   propor- '  lioii.-i.    11 had spread   over  the  bench'  between  Robinson's    mill    and   Mac- '  kenzie   Avenue   and    was    seriously  threatening   the   mill   itself  and-the  couple of million feet of saw logs piled  up  around    it.     The  energies  of the *  mill   hands    were    directed    hy* Mr.  Robin.-on to construct a hasty defence"  work       of     logs,     at     which      the "  flames might be fought,  and men  and ���������  horses   worked  hard   in   the  blazing  heat and blinding smoke to throw ifcup.  In the rear barrels of water and   men  with   pails  were stationed  to   extinguish   any   sparks   which    might   be-"  blown over tlie line   and stare a fire  inside it.    The piles of logs also  were "  placed   under   careful    watch.       The"  chemical   engine    under    Mr.    Chas.,  Abrahauisons care,-was  posted  near  the logs as   an   extra precaution.    It'  took  a   lot   of   watching,   but   those ''  working- were successful    in  holding  the flames at bay,   though  they  were '  not much more ihan fifty yards from '  the saw logs.  All along the side of   the   fire  next'  the town, in whicu direction it showed'"  a decided tendency to keep working, a '  line of barrels was  placed  under  the '  direction of the mayor, whose  watch-,  fulness was  indefatigable,  and Fleni- "  ing's party of   graders and   a railway"  gang sent by .-iupt.

But though ho put on his best  licks he could not pile that greenhorn. I guess that "Christy stiff"  hat kind ot paralyzed him.  You see, cow horses ain't used to  such trimmings.  Anyhow, after the tenderfoot had  charged round for awhile and fair  discouraged old "Weyler, he rode right  up on the sidewalk, into thc saloon  and up to the bar.

ANOTHER  CASE  OP MAUD  THAT HALF BREED SCRIP  From the "Calgary Herald  When ihe arrangements for settling  ihe claims of the haifbreeds of the  North West were under discussion in  parliament Minister Sifton said he  was "satisfied the changes he had  made with regard to the assignment  of scrip certificates would to a great  extent stop the abuses complained of.  Kow instead of being payable to  ���������bearer' the certificates could he assigned onlv upon the filing in the  department of the interior of a legal  form of assignment. It was easy to  get a half breed to give up his certificate when he was drunk, but it was  hard to get one to sign a legal document-"  So far so good, hut Mr. Sifton had  evidently reckoned without his commissioners, for ihe Edmonton Bulletin announces that the half breeds  refused point blank to actfspt scrip  unless it was payable to bearer and  the commissioners, having satisfied  themselves that they had the power,  changed the wording of the scrip so  that the recipients could at once dispose of it to the highest bidder. This  seems  to   call   for   another   explana-  TME SESSION  From the Calgary Herald  Fairly good progress was mado during the past week in the commons.  The estimates relating to the post  office, the militia, and railway and  canal departments have gone through  committee, and might have been passed much earlier if the information  asked for by the opposition had not  been withheld. The redistribution bill,  which was the cause of so much adverse comment, has been passed as  far as It was in the power of the  commons to pass it, and now awaits  its fate at the hands of tho Senate.  Indeed, the spirit which seems to have  recently been made in the despatch of  public business leads to the belief  that barring accidents the business of  parliament may be concluded in the  near future.  The announcement made by tho  premier the other day, however, may  tend to fulfill the prophecy that parliament would still be sitting when  the snow flies. * The introduction of  resolutions affecting the Senate will  J undoubtedly result in a wordy -war,  and any attempt to push these resolution will only afford to the champions  of the upper chamber an opportunity  to point out fully the services which  the Senate has recently rendered to  the country at large. Looked at from  a practical standpoint, the resolutions  themselves can avail nothing and can  at most reveal the opinions of the two  great parties on the desirability of an  upper chamber such as exists in Canada today. The supplementary estimates too still await consideration  and if the utterances of the government papers are to be relied on, these  estimates will amount io an appreciable sum. and will evoke no little  discussion. Then again there is the  ���������lalk-of-a-proposal-to-granl-a-numbor-  of railroad subsidies, which arc not  likely to go through without criticism.

The cook pointed to Rowe and the  dudo walks up to him ami says quite  pleasantly:  "I heard a man say in town this  morning that you wanted a hand, so  I thought I would come out and get  the job."  Rowe looked at tho "Christy stiff"  hat, his stuck up collar, his silk tic,  his boiled shirt, and his pretty clothes  and then he says, quite slowly:  "And what kind of a job might you  he looking i_. .  "Why, punching cows, of course."  said the stranger.  "Yes," said Rowe, "and what do you  know about cow punching, and where  might you have punched cows?"  "Down ��������� in Missouri," says he. smiling   most  pleasant.  Now, perhaps you don't, know it,  but there ain't 'no cow punching  iu Missouri); ln fact, that place is  pretty much of a hayseed state, and  a regular nesting place for greenhorns and tenderfeet; so when the  dude said he come from Missouri  Rowe kind o������ looked at him and said:  "And what outfit might you have  worked for down there?"  "well, I worked for my pap," says  ho, "Pap had nigh on '20 cows and  I had to drive them down to the  pond to water; pap used to rido the  old hay and 1 used to ride Molly;  sometimes I'd ride Jim, the mule.  Oh, I've had quite a lot of riding, I  can tell you. Maw used to say I  could  ride  well."  "That   so,"   said   Rowe.    "Well,   _ I  guess  1  haven't any  job   for   you."  "What,"   says . thc    dude,   looking  mighty   surprised. "Perhaps   you  think I can't.ride good enough?"  "Well, that's uo lie," saiud Rowe,  who was getting a bit tired of him.  "Oh, hold on," said Mr. 'Christy-  stiff' you haven't seen me ride. Givo  me a show; I'm pretty hard up and  want a job."  ."Look here," said Rowe, "you want,  a show and I'I give you one. You  rule that bald faced hronc .over there  and if he doesn't chuck you I'll give  you a job, and, what's more, I'll give  you  top wages."  Now, this same brone was a regular outlaw and man killer, there  wasn't a puncher in the outfit who  could stay with him, though we hail  some branco twisters who were no  slouches cither; he was a vicious, biting, striking, whistling, snortng terror, and as for bucking, why, he'd  sooner buck than eat. We called him  General Weyler. It did seem rather  low down to run the stranger up  against such a cyclone, but ho was no  precious green he just jumped at the  chance.  "All right," says he;  "will you give  me top-wages if 1 ride,that horse?"  "Surely,"   said   Rowe,  chuckling   to  himself.  "And perhaps you wouldn't mind  buying me an outfit, as I'm broke,"  said the dude.  "I'll   do that," said Rowe, "I guess  sticking  plaster.    1=   pretty   cheap."  whispered   he   to  the hoys   who   was  standing round.  "Here, Joe," says Rowe, "you and  Cadotte catch and saddle up old Gen.  Weyler and bring liimo round here."  Some of^the boys caught him up  and drove him round to the back of  the mess tent, roped him, threw him,  blindfolded and saddled him and  then brought him round for the tenderfoot.

An alarming increase of mortality  in Great Britain, from cancer, has lell  to the formation of a society to combat the disease. Its inaugural meeting was held in London, recently, when  Sir Charles Cameron, M. P.. dwelling  upon the need of the society pointed  out that the number of deaths from  cancer in New York had doubled  during tho past 10 years, and It was  calculated tbat if the increase waB  maintained, there will be more deaths  from cancer in 1S00 than from consumption, smallpox, and typhoid fever  combined. In Great Britain, during  the same period, the ratio per million  hae raised from 3S5 to 7S7.  Maud Muller went on a summer day  To try th" old racket ot raking hay.  She'd  heard  how   it  snared  a  judge,  and thought  There '.eight be another to he caught.  And  oft she glanced down thc lane's  long  course  To son  if he came  on a pinto  horse.  But   the    judge   came  not,  nor   the  sleek  court clerk,  Nov the constable to get in his work.  Not even a chronic juror camo.  To  ask  her   to   share  his  oft   called  name.   ,  Yet she raked  awav  with   a  tireless  will.  For    Aland     was     a     stayer     from  Stayervilie.  Great  blisters  rose  on  her  hands  so  fair,  And hayseeds lodged in her windtossed  hair.  But nary a judge come ridiug by,  And her swollen bosom was filled with  a  sigh.  Onc   spark   of  hope    in    said   bosom  burned  That   maybe   the     court   hadn't   yet  adjourned.  Oh he may have halted to wet his face  With a lawyer who'd got away with  the case.  And yet she raked with untiring zeal,  The   damp   sweat   tricked   from   head  to heel.  The   spear   grass   pricked   her   zebra  hose  'Neath    the southern    bonds     ot  her  Sunday clothes.'  The   breezes   blew   on   her   blooming  checks  And scattered thc sweat in crisscross  streaks.  Tht sun sank lower, a-down the west,  And the star hope dittoed in Maudio's  breast.  One last glance  fired along the lane,  Then sank on the stubble with moan  ot   pain.  Then she rose again with impromptu  spring,  For   the   stubble    was    sharp    as   a  hornet's sting.  Then   cried., as     to     splinters   she  stamped the rake:  "This  hay   field   racket's  a   blooming  fake'.  "The   feller   that-    writ   that  portry  ought  To be taken out and fatally shot!  "Don't thing no gal ever made a play  To  rake up  a   feller   thls-a-way!"  And she  said   as  she   limped   to   her  home again,  Her accents keyed lo a note of pain:  "Of all    darned suckers that ever bit  I've a sneakin' idee that I  am it."  ���������Denver   Post.  Tho Career of ono of Canada's Beat  Known Conservatives.  Tho late Hon.     William     Bullock  Ives,      M.  P., Q. C, D. C. L., whoso  death took place on     Saturday, was  born in     the township     of Compton,  Quebec,  on November 17th, 1841.  Ho  was tho son of Eli Ives, who came to  Canada  from Connecticut.     Mr. Ives  was educated at thc Compton  Academy and afterwards took up the study  of law.     Ho was called to the bar in  1SG7, and became a queen's counsel in  18S0.     He devoted his timo rather to  commercial pursuits than to his practice, being president ot the Hereford  Railway company, thc  Royal Pulp &  Paper company,  the Salmon      River  Pulp company, and     the     Scotstown  Lumber company.     He was one of the  hief proprietors of the Crookshire Mill  company, and was vice president     of  the Dominion Cattle company. He had  extensive mining  interests in British  Columbia and it was in     connection  with these that ho paid his last visit  to the Pacific coast a few weeks ago.  Hon. Mr.  Ives was prominently connected  with  thc politics of     Canada  for many years.      After serving     as  mayor of Sherbrooko he was elected to  the commons for Richmond and Wolfe  in lhe Conservative interests     at tho  general election of 1S78.      He retained the scat until 1S91, when he was  returned for Sherbrooko and he again  won that, scat in lS'lli.     In December,  1S92, he became a member of the cabinet, taking the portfolio of president  of the council in Sir John   Thompson's  administration.      In    -Sir     Mackenzie  Bowell's  cabinet he  became   minister  of trade, and commerce in December,  1S9-1, but acting with the other members who objected  to Sir Mackenzie's  leadership he resigned  the     oflice in  January.   I SOC.      When  Sir      Charles  Tupper took ovor the leadership. Mr.  Ives  resumed  his  portfolio which  he  hold  until  the  defeat of  the government at. the general elections of IS'Jli.  The deceased was in son-in-law of the  late. Hon, J. II.

In the old days, says the      Regina  West,  before Jthe police came out,  it  was dangerous for a white      man to  travel   through  the    country of     tho  Blackfcct,   and  the      Indian  traders,  who often made small fortunes out ot  selling whiskey to the Indians, used to  establish      themselves      in stockaded  torts, where they were safe  from the.  attacks ot any war party that might,  happen" along. Those whiskey traders,  who were for the most part Americans  from Wyoming and Montana, used to  make   Southern   Alberta 'the  field  of  tlieir operations, and many a story is  told of wild adventure wilh the Black-  feet not. so very many years ago. Onc  of these anecdotes of the early     days  may prove of interest now, in view of  tho rapid opening up of Southern Alberta.       In  the  vicinity  of  Macleod,  colorings of gold have been found, although the prospector has seldom discovered  the  precious   metal   in  quantities suflicient     to warrant continued  operations, but the feeling has always  existed that gold in paying quantities  existed, on   the  eastern  slope  ot  the  Rockies if it. could only be located. '  When the police tracked     away to  the westward  in  the early seventies,  in the foothill country they came upon  some rusty miner's implements in the  bed of one of tho smaller rivers. How  thoy got there was a matter of some  surmise,  as  the  only      white people  known to be in the .country were the  American whiskey traders      who usually confined themselves to doing the  Indians out of their hard earned furs.  The matter was soon forgotten, save  by a few of the older members of the  force.      A few years ago, however, a  resident of  Southern  Alberta was  in  one of the Montana     mining     towns  when  he met an old man     who had  made his fortune in the Black     Hills  diggings,   and   was      quite      a  local  celebrity.     On learning that the i___.ii-  adian was from Macleod, he told the  following extraordinary story:  The year before the police came  west, a party of American miners; ot  w-hich "he was one, was prospecting  for_ placer gold up towards the Canadian boundary and as the showings  seemed better the further north they  went, they crossed the line and proceeded along the foothills through  Canadian territory, and eventually  pitched their camp in a range of  small hills where their diggings were  attended with, the greatest success.  The old miner stated that gold was to  he found in almost all the dried water  courses, and they were rapidly suc-  "555(1 fni? ~iu amasstng-^-^considerable'*  treasure. They were, however, seriously hampered in their operations by  the Blackfeet, who continually harassed them so that they did not dare to  sit around thc camp fire at night  without the danger of a storm of bullets whistline about thoir ears, or lay  aside their weapons for a moment.,  However, they were a strong party,  and ns they were rapidly amassing a  large quantity of gold, they had every  confidence in their ability to stand the  Indians off. One day, having seen  nothing of redskins for some time,  when tliey were all hard at work digging, a largo party ot Indians rushed  on the miners and killed and scalped  thorn on tho spot. The old man who  was relating the i-tory. alone escaped,  having rusiKd into the scrub at thc  fir. t alarm. After many hardships he  succeeded tn making his way back lo  .Montana, with the intention of returning with a large party nf mlntrs and  renewing dicing operations. II.iw-  fvcr. he drlft.e.i down to the Ilia' I;  Hills diggings and made a lucky strike  th'-re which put bim beyond the necessity of engaging in such lu iff ���������  dons enterprises.  The man from Alberta lisl.n.J to  the narration with considerable in-*  forest, but. put the story down ;m an  old man's yarn" and dii*r,.i_-;r(! t.ic  subject from his mind unui one day  whoa driving through th" country in  the vicinity of Macleod !:c was struck  by the resemblance bet vce:> tho range  of hills known as iiie I'cruplneB^.in.l  those described in l'r..i nld man's nar  rative. He mentioned what he hail  heard to a friend, an official of the  Indian department, who instituted  enquiries among the Indians. Of  courso thoy themselves would not  admit, the killing of the prospectors,  hut thoy knew all about the circumstances and declared that al. the time  the Americans had liny amount of  gold. Thoy wore not sure of tho  actual spot where the prospectors wero  murdered, but asserted that It. was in  tho Toi-cupinc Hills. The Incident, of  thp police finding the mining tools  aud implements was recalled and It  certainly appears as though tho story  had the, elements of probability about,  it.

Tlu! burden parly Riven lust night at'  jMrs. Coursier's residence in aid of the  Kindergarten fund was a great-success.  Owing to Thursday night's downpour,  tlie utfiiir wns postponed till last  night, which perhaps accounts for the  fact I hut lhe attendance was not quite  adequate to the very enjoyable entertainment provided. The pretty garden  surrounding the house was guy with  flags, decorated booths and Chinese  lanterns. The stall holders were���������  Miss Powell, flowers; Miss Eva Forrest, ice cream and strawberries; Miss  Francis Dent, fruit; Miss Hannah,  randies; .Miss Jordan, bran tub and  pop. Guy Rurhci' was in charge of the  shooting gallery, while Miss Austin  looked after providing lhu guests with  ton, which was in great demand. Tlie  citv band rendered a programme  which was well worth listening to,  and Miss Spiirling delighted the  audience Iiy a couple of selections on  the violin, accompanied by Mrs.  Haig. Nurse Lucas gave a selection  on the piano, which was -grimily appreciated. The iVimith organ and  guitar (|tiiirtette. by .Messrs. Burlier.  Dier, Douglas, Macdonald and Meldrum, was well received. The proceedings wound iip with an impromptu  hop on the lawn lo the strains of the  band. The whole nlT.iir wus'most enjoyable and the Ili.jit.M.i) hopes tlie  results to die kindergarten fund will  lie as satisfactory.  NEW POLICY REQUIRED.  Were They Drowned ?

Telling how in.a concert hall in Btiitalo,  N.

Suicide At Kamloops.  About a week ago an old man named  Lund, a Noiwegian, who resides at  Canoe Creek in the Salmon Arm district, left his home for Kamloops to  consult u physician for an intolerable  pain in the stomach which he thought  was caused by eating baron upon  which lye had been acbidentlv spilled.  Dr. Proctor .whom he culled on was  very bus}- at the time, asked him to  call a sain in the afternoon, but as he  failed to show up the doctor concluded  that Mr. Lund had returned home.  Tho friends at hohie becoming anxious  through tho week communicated with  Kuml.iop**��������� and���������a���������search���������partv��������� w������s  organized and the old man's body was  found about a. mile from town in a  badly decomposed condition.  Editor Lugrin of the Colonist has  published a two column letter in lhe  Victoria Globe setting forth the lino  of policy whicli he conceives the next  Government of British Columbia  should pursue. He. says, "The problem presented by British Columbia today may be described as a great  business proposition and what seems  to be culled for is a business men's  government and not of politicians."  Further on he asks, -'the public men  of British Columbia if the success of a  party or a clique is comparable to the  realization of tho great future which  awaits the province tinder wise administration."  The whole article, is well worth  reading, though it is unfortunately  ton long to admit of ''reproduction in  the 11 Kit ald's col u n ins, and from il.  admirable materials could be extracted  for a platform from which to "oppose  the Martin socialistic programme in  the coming election. But the best  use which can bo made of it, is for each  constituency to take the spirit which  underlies it as their motto in selecting  their next representative und that is  that the. administration of this province is a business proposition and requires business men, not politicians,  demagogues and faddists, to carry it  on. This is a point which thcIIlSRAI.D  has already taken occasion to expound  with regard lo our own particular  community.' If there is any ^constituency in the province into whicli  'circumstances''': should have ground  this axiom it is Revelstoke. For years  we have endured tho rule of politicians pure and simple. We have  seen our interests neglected and our  progress thwarted that the ruling  clique inight score some petty point.  Wc have, seen the loudly expressed  wishes of our business men disregarded  at the bidding of a catch vote of carefully packed public meetings. Every  effort made to further the progress of  the town has been subject to a senseless and vexatious system of pn -  criistiiiation and opposition. Such  has been our experience under the  regime of the small politician.  It is not any political exigency, it is  a purely business consideration which  demands a change from this state of  affairs to a settled policy of straightforward enterprise and progress.-  There is no place iu tlie province with  brighter prospects, with;ii finer business  territory to develop, or one whose  known resources demand inure urgently the inauguration of a firm,  well-considered and progressive policy.  To curry this out we require a man to  represent us at Victoria who comprehends the situation, who lias faith' in  the district and who is in full sympathy with our aspirations. We require a. man who will have the lull  confidence uf his fellow citizens and  will be callable of using to the utmost  the weight of his position in the house  as representing one of the most ini-  |ioi tanticoiistituetieies in the piovince.  AVe shall have to ask for considerable  help from the government to enable  us to use to the full the advantages of  our position, aud'-'we want a man at  Victoria who will be able to get onr  reasonable demands satisfied.

THE PASSING SHOW.  EIGHT HOUR LAW  Nelson  Board  of  Trade   Instructs   Its  Members to Discuss the Question.  Nklson, July 10.--An effort was  made by a few government, supporters  here last week lo compel the Hoard < f  Trade delegates at a joint meeting at  Rossland to refrain from discussing the  Eight-Hour law. At a packed meeting resolutions to that effect were  carried by a small majority. Yesterday a meeting was held, the largest in  the. history of the board, and representative of every interest in the cily  and district, which, wilh one dissenting vote, that of the gold''commissioner, deeided to let the delegates to  Rossland discuss and vote 011 the  eight-hour question as they see fit.  This is the hearty endorsement of men  who have been heartily opposed lo the  nighl-hour law.  Is it not about time'.T. il. Kellie  cleared up that'' little' discrepancy between himself- and ilr. Cotton wilh  regard to the calling of that famous  public meetintr/ Kellie. in opening  tiie meeting, told the people distinctly  that he had been requested by the  government' to'call' it.- Mr. Cotton  most emphatically repudiated this  statement'to the board of trade last  Saturday and not only 'that but expressed the utmost contempt for the  value of .niiy expression of opinion  gained by such ifiectinsi"-. So far from  asking Kellie tri call it, he suid that  the resolution carried at it. cut nn  figure with the"'government at all.  Now who are "we to believe? The  Hkrald's columns are open to Mr.  Kellie to explain.hiniself.  His Scalp for His Life.  An Italian section hand is lying iti  the hospital with a bad scalp wound.  the result of an encounter-.,between 'a  handcar load of section men and the  No. 1 in the Beaver, canyon. The  other four members jumped and  escaped without * injury, but the  wounded man suffered the operation  of being almost entirely scalped in  leaping for his life from the track.  The -engine struck the ���������handcar and  thi-!.. it over to one side of the track.  It is plain that owing to the carelessness of the .-eetion gang in beint; 011  the track in No. 1's iime an accident,  which .'might, have proved 'fatal not  onlv to themselves but also to some of  the p.i.-seniieis on the expiess, was  verv narrowlv avoided.

To get this great territory developed i.s purely business. It means  employment for workingmen, it means  claims sold by prospectors and mines  developed by capital, it means business for our merchants, bu .iness for  our mechanics and artisans, fnoney in  eveiybody's pocket, and life, activity  and progress, where now is nothing  but stagnation ,ind depression. And  that is why the .selection of a it-pi e-  senlative at. Victoria capable and  willing to uie his position lo aid us in  carrying out thi.-i vital policy is a  purely luisine-s proposition. To this  object every elector in this district  should devote himself. Putting to one  si.le political differences and petty  matters of contention, our sole and  united effort, in the '..approaching  election should be to secure the services of a man for our representative  whose aim as a member of the legislature .will lie to further the business  interests and progress of his district  and the whole province.
