There \v;is a large attendance of  union mon in Selkirk Hull nn Wednesday evening ut the meeting culled  by thu_local committee of the truckmen. On tliu platform were seated  Thos. Taylor JU. P. P., Mayor Brown,  J. M. Kellie, St. Gordon und the  representatives of the press. C.  Fraser, the chairman of the local  committee after calling the meeting  to order handed over the chair to T.  J. Graham, secretary of the committee, who opened the proceedings  by stating that the meeting was  called to give the gentlemen present  an opportunity ol" expressing their  feelings towards the strikers and  especially with reference to the action  of the provincial government in the  recent appointment of special coi.-  stables. All politics were to be  avoided. He then called on J. M.  Kellie to make the opening speech.  Mr. Kellie said that he considered  that the government had taken a very  arbitrary step. The strikers had  committed no breach ol" the 1 iw and  tlie government had no justifica tion  for their action in taking the part of  the C. P. R. by paying special police  out of the pockets of the taxpayers.  He claimed that the men wer������ not  getting in many cases fair wages and  now that the C. P. K. is paying big  dividends the men who help to keep  up the road should share in the prosperity of the company. He never  knew some of the members of the  present government to take the side of  the working man. Last session they  had given the lieutenant governor  power to raise the poll tax from $3 to  So on the workingmen for the reason  that the revenue wiis unequal to -the  expenditure and yet they had voted  to increase their own sessional 'indemnities 1>Y-J!i*2l*0'apiece, thereby  adding $1(100 to' the*"annual .expenses  of the province! In conclusion he said  that as long as the trackmen on strike  did not commit any overt act - against  the property of the company thoy  would have the sympathy and goodwill of every member of the community.  Mv. Taylor, who was the next  speaker said that he Had been glad to  hear the chairman say that there was  to be no discussion of politics. However Mr. Kellie had ventured on  political ground and he did not think  he would be out of order in replying.  He had supported the bill to increase  the poll tax because it was thought  that it would be necessary to increase  the tax in order to provide our children  with proper educational facilities.  The increase was not to be put in  force until Jan. 1st next, and not then  it the present rate of .$3 was. found to  .suffice. Perhaps it would not be enforced at all. The present salary of  members of the legislature was $800  and he did not think that a member,  who-devoted   his   time, to   his . con-  Lamps'!

HUME  &C0  stituents for three or four months in  the year at Victoria and for.;the rest  of the' year in going hither and thither  at their call in his riding was overpaid.- When a proposal had been  made to reduce the sessional indemnity when Mr. Kellie was in the  house that gentleman had opposed it  and would on the question of an  increase have most likely voted as the  speaker did. He resented the action  of the government with regard to the  special police, as much as anyone.  Hud' the occasion warranted theU'  action might be justified but uu  necessity had arisen. On tho OivUi* of  parties concerned that there wus  necessity the pvaviucinl authorities had power under the statutes to  appoint special constable*;. Strong  representations may have been made  to the government that there did  exist such a necessity. If that was so,  it was soon found that no necessity  for them existed and the police recalled. The matter would be taken up  hy him very thoroughly. One thing  he wanted to find out was whether the  men engaged as special constables  were paid by the company or by the  province. He felt most keenly in  sympathy with the trackmen in connection with their demand for a  raise of wages. When he first came  lo British Columbia he had himself  worked as a trackman and knew what  the duties of a man in that position  were. At the time he had considered  that he himself was badly underpaid  und he could hardly see now how he  had managed to keep himself, much  less how a married man could sup  port a family on the wages earned by  them. He felt that the trackmen as  a class were worthy of an increase of  wages. He congratulated the striker?,  on thc harmony and goodwill which  prevailed among them. ' In closing he  wished to suggest that in cases of this  kind the  proper  way  to  solve    the  difficulty is by arbitration nnd he did  not think that the time was very far  distant wliere compulsory arbitration  would be the rule throughout the  Dominion.    (Hear, hear.)  The Mayor, who w.-is next culled on,  was received with a hearty round of  applause. He thanked the meeting  for the honor done to him in extending  an invitation to be present and speak  on. Ihe occasion. However he was  still veiy much in the dark us to the  main question, tin* appointment of  special constables. lie thought a  resolution deinaniling ;*an investigation would be in oidti*. He did not  want tu lind fault unt-.l be knew where  the responsibility bhould ivst. At the  -siime time he thought: every one iu  Reveit-lnke was uppo&itd to the conr**e  taken by the government in Ibis  nutter und in sympathy -with the  strikers. He had been sorry to see  politics Ill-ought into tbe dU-cussion,  which should have been solely used to  get to the bottom of tbe business in  baud. He congratulated r.he trackmen  on the order kept in town and said  that if ihey kept up alon-; the same  lines there was no question but what  they would win, There were good  men on the government side of the  house who would stand o ut and de-  mund'au ex pin nation of t.ieir action  und if any official hud overs, tepped the  mark he should l<e discipli ned. But  what he wa. t d to t,e*e w.*is-'|_,aii  expression of opinion put. oa record by  the meeting. ' ���������  R, Gordon endorsed the 1 ast speaker's ptoposal of u lesolution d einvading  an investigation.  '-The chairman suiil that tin? .first  instruction regarding the engaging" of  special constables had been r������c<_ivi*d  by the gold commissioner on the 14fc*h  June bel'oie the strike i ri������s even  called.

Rdwads   next ,  Railway Compamy Has Offered  a  Reward   of $10,00   for  the  Conviction    of    the     Guilty  Parties.  Craxkkook, June 20.���������An engine  and one car were ditched at the last  switch in the west yard'here on Monday night at. 2.80. ISngineer Block,  fireman"!.owen and brakeinun Cliurch-  I escaped serious injury, although the  engine and tender were thrown down  an eiiibaiiknien and turned over on  their side. fCnginuer Brock was caught  between the tender and tlu* cab lor a  few minutes, lint finally crawled  through the window. A switch was  turned, and a light placed to deceive  the engineer. The U'liikiuen are  alarmed, but they have issued a card  denying uny knowledge of the affair.  Considetuble feeling has lieen aroused  here and superintendent Bury has  offered $1000 reward for the detei tion  of the guilty parties. -  The Nelson Tribune says: Passengers  wlio arrived in Nelson last evening  from Cranbrook all, agree that the  turning of the switch at that point  w.is the work of some ��������� misguided sympathizer of the striking switchmen.  Tliey report that just before ' the  engine ran upon the open switch some  stones were thrown through the  windows of the cab. one of which  struck the fireman. The derailed train  was the second section of._ a freight.  Tbe first section bad been 'moved' out,  and it, was while the ��������� engineer was  bringing the second section out ofthe  yard that the switch was uirned whuh  resulted in the ditching of the' locomotive. The loss tif the locomotive will  be seriously felt by the company, as it  wus rather short ot power 011 the  division, and the ditched locomotive  was one of.the big compound i-ngines  used exclusively^m hauling fieirzbt. A  report was current lute, lust evening  that the offender hud been uppre-  lu'iided, but the" repoit. lacked confirmation.  The Nelson Miner says:' Under the  circumstances the striking trackmen  are -connected with the wreck*, but the  men indignantly deny thvtt they haA  anything to do with " it. -Tliey. point  out, that they knosv they will ruin  theii* cause by resorting to such lawless  acts' and implicit orders have been  given that strict order must be maintained." Also, as they* h.ivo'; much 10  expect from the engineers'.iind firemen  in the way of sympathetic -help tbey  would not be -ioolish, enough'-.to *do  anything to antagonise*that element.  It is thought here that the deed; wit**-,  committed by same discharged yard  men who took advantage of the strike  to make the company tlie victim of  their spite iti'the hope that the tiack-  mi'ii would be hold responsible for it.'

A distressing accident, occurred at  Cieaton Junction on Monday niglit  which resulted in a section foreman  named Randall having both legs  severed. He and a car repairer, who  were employed on the Gieat Norlhein  line, were approach ing ihe Junction on  a speeder and endeavfued to make it  before the passenger train. They miscalculated the distance that the train  was from them with the result that it  collided with them while going at full  speed. The head light of .the engine  did not show the engineer the speeder  in time to avert the accident. Wnen  1 he train was brought to u standstill it  wiib found that Randall hud both logs  cut off and .his companion escape J  without any injuries.

A Letter from the Winnipeg  Committee Setting forth the  Condition of Labor on tl e  C. P. R. Track.  The following letter setting forth  the men's statement of the conditions  under which the 0. P. R. trackmen  labor was given for publication to the  Telegram by the Winnipeg st 'ike  committee:  r- (SANGS AND TI1E1K  DUTIES.  The section work is done by average  gangs of about three   men   and   one  foreman.   The distance of line to* be'  covered bv each section gang  is from  '  7   to 12   miles   approximately.     This .  distance usually includes from two to  ten switches, the care of which is part  of the trackmen's duties   and entails  very considerable work.   The \luty of  the gang, briefly, is the care   of  the*  road and its. maintenance   in  a  safe  condition.   They do not repair bridges  or trestle work, but are called upon t*o  report any. defect in  these and 6uch  duty necessitates daily  inspection   as  thoy   are   held   responsible   for their  safety.     Tlie _ rules   of   the company  require that the whole distance of each  section should be covered  daily.     In  many cases this   is  an   impossibility.  On the main line the section  men   aro  required to   put   up switch lamps and  keep    them     in    proper    condition.  Special   duties   are   also   imposed   at  different points, such as the unloading  of coal and coaling  engines,   cai-e   of  water tanks, etc. , . ^  RATES OF PAY.

Foremen alone enjoy the possibility'  of  steady   employment.    "When   tha  frosts set in fully 25 per cent  of  their  number  are   either  discharged or re- .  duced  to   the   ranks  as ordinary sectionmen.     Those  discharged have no  prospect of  re-engagement  for  such  work until the frost leaves the ground  in the spring.     With the approach of  -  winter fully 75 per   cent  of   the  sec-     ���������  tionmen     are     discharged.       Seven   ' ..  months is the limit of   their  employ-*  ment* period. ,  FIXES. BOAKD  AND ItKN'T.  Both foremen and sectionmen   are  subjected ��������� to an - elaborate   system ot  arbitrarily  inflicted   fines   of  an   ab- .  normally  heavy character in comparison with the   earnings  of   the  men.  P^itJ^*ant^it"^ft"en~������wirTtllat"h"ara=  cars are started and curried down the  line by sudden gusts   of  heavy   wind  whilst  the   men   are at work.   If the  car iu its flight should be damaged by  being thrown from   the track 'or .collision   with   a   train,  the   foreman in  charge of such would be liable for the  cn*-t of ie pairs, sometimes aa high as  $20.00.     Fines -to   this   amount have  frequently been enforced.    Other fines  are inflicted for such  mat tors as delay  in   answering  letter;',   eitora   in time  books, etc.     When the foreman is oft  duty the next man in chaige ib liable.  When the track is fenced tbe foreman  is responsible   for  keeping the   track  cleat*of cattle.   If any are killed within   such   feui-ed limits the foreman   is   -  held tesponbible for such fenced limits.  Friction has resulted from attempts to  enforce     this    tompiuutively   recent  regulation.  Sectionmen when not.-resident are  requited to boaid with section foicman  at section house*;. The regulation  charge is S3 50 per week.  Foremen occupying the company's  section houses are rt quired to pay  from $5.00 to $"-50 per month rent.  KIIORT TIME.  On the main line during the winter  months a certain number of section-  men are kept on at half time. For  instance between Winnipeg and Brandon regular gangs of four or five men  are reduced to one mam at half time  and a foreman. The section man  thus earns 02 1-2 cents per day for  ���������ix days and is charged 50 cents per  day for board for seven days of the  week; in other words he earns $3.75  per week and is charged $3.50 fop  board.  On.VOXIOCS METHODS OF ECONOMY.    '  In wintertime, in the  branch  lines,  '  a'l sectionmen are  dischnaged.     One  foreman alone is left in charge.

There are Mime pcoph. in the piovince who when defending the liif_.li
taxation of mining enterprises by I lit*
provincial government arc accustomed
to use the argument that tho mining
industry ought to bi; made to pay
heavily lx-cau.se every ton of ore
taken out of the ground impoverishes
the province by just so much as it is
worth. It was there before, now it is
gone and the people are so much the
If this theory holds good, why not
pursue it to its logical conclusion*'
Why not abolish all mining laws altogether and do away with the department of mines, its gold commissioner:.,, mining recorders nnd
every official connected .with it at one
sweep? "Why legalize this systematic
robbery of the people's property at
a'.l ? Why not go a step further and
make prospecting a penal offence and
prohibit the sale of gold pans and
miner's picks under a heavy penalty ?
Then the people's property will he

iK'ss lo a certain   cl.cnl, if you like, are
the     essential     characteristics    of   a
pioneer   popii'.-ition.    The   men,   who
have   tbe toils   and perils ol prospecting and mining in a new   country   like
liiitish   (Jclimibia,   West Australia or
South Africa are those   whose  discontent with their chances in   the regions,
of a more sett led  and   easier existence
is    stronger    than   that   of   ordinary
people.      J'hcy  arc   not   hen; for their
health.   -Incidentally they may and do
enrich     lhe    wnole    community    but
individually their   object   is   solely to
enrich   Uii'tni-clvo***.     And  any legislation, which   imposes a direct chei k   on
the attainment of lhis object is icsei'l"

wealth is useless   to anybody   wil bout

They sec  all round   tlieni evidences  in

not long ago ihe.y themselves wen: the
only   human   occupants   for   pet haps
hundreds   of   miles:    they   see   those
evidences lhat they have deserved well
of   the community   at   large and it is
only natural lhat they should consider
that   they,   have  earned a'right. to I lie
unimpaired and  undivided   possession
of the special prize, which tliey set out
to attain.    They have actually.created
a score Or more of  sources of revenue
to the government and   they feel   lhat
in doing so   lhey   have done   enough;
that. at. all events the  ore which   thoy
win   or   the   gold   which   they   wash
should be free from taxation.

1 Albert Stone
When thus pushed home this line
of argument certainly does look rather
absurd and yet the average man
dimly feels that there is some kind of
truth in it after all. The imposition
of a ten per cent* royalty in Klondike
was defended'on the same grounds.
"Why should the gold belonging to
Canada lie allowed to be carried oil* by
a crowd of Americans and foreigners,
giving nothing in return 'j* On thi.s
plea the royalty was impo.-ed and the
imposition was furiously opposed hy
ihe miners, just as the imposition of a
royalty was bitterly opposed by the
pioneers of Cai-ilx*) and roused the
���Au^ti-iinni^lffgWauts- in���iinn'cd���re~
j-istanco. There seem*** to be no form
of taxation more strongly resented in

"You c.in't see lieyond the (loinl ol
pick." it. a favorite expn.Msioii with
many praclici! miners: and a man
who lias ih irije of important miiiin*.;
enlei prises wiote me not Ioiik since :
"Sly experience as a uiiiiei tells nn'
that coiijectiuo and presiuiip lion avai]
hul little against the pit k and Mioiel,'
A few days nyn a man iilenlilied M'ilh
���1 Ixxxyt xxx'xxx'xxtiyt schenie in this state
remarked on the street: ".Mining is
o.i'.v a n-iiuhle.��� I advise men, if lhey
have money with which 10 speculate.
Lo buy uiiiiil!*^ slock ; but, if lhey have
���-money for investment, to put, it into
.something else than a mine."
Now. is it true that success tn mining
is entirely dependent upon chance or
unknown ciiiilingpiicit's- 'i The element, of chance must be considered in
ever}' pioposilion, to be sure. The
tanner who plants runs the ri.-k of
losing liis crop by frosts late in the
.-prinj.; or early in lhe fall, by hail
sloini, visitation of locusls or by liie.
The slock grnw-ir snlfeis heavy lo.-sen
.it times fiom contingencies ovei
vyhich he cannot e.xeicise control,
and ihus it is in every walk of life.
.Aie the risks greater in mining than
in any thing else? If so, there must be
leiison fni' il ; and one of the leading
ii'.isons is that, because people believe
success is dependent upon chance they
do not give llu'inselves lhe preparatory
training necessary to make success
possible. If there aie no fixed laws
governing mineral dcposits,'_if success
is only a mailer of chance, then one
man would do as well in charge of a
mining enterprise as another. Success
would hu purely and solely a matter
Failure must necessarily follow in
any enti-i prise when pel sons imbued
with such ideas enter upon it. Vet
we see them do il in mining every day.
The gambler is not so foolish as this.
He counts largely on his skill. What
show would u novice staml. iu a game
of stallion poker with an experienced
player ?
I'ut is success in mining a matter or
chance ? Who are our successful men
today? Are Lhey not invariably men
who have gained experience in everyday life, men who have met with a
number of failures and reverses, pet-
haps, before thev acquired thi-
tiecessary skill lo make Ihem masters
and give them the ability _to make _ u
success in their chosen field of elfort,
but whose success is in no sense of the
word a mailer of chance ?
The laws governing Lhe formation of
placer deposits are fa'uly well iindei-
slood and' it would be a. poor miner
indeed who could not, hy virtue of his
past expediences, be ableDto predicate
with comparative accuracy something
of fhe probabilities "beyond fhe point

The past   week has seen a   remarkable and perhaps unique condiLion   of
a'1'aii'S in the -world of organized lalior.
The      Iniei'ii.ttiona]     Association     of
Machinists   on   -Monday  opened their
convention   in   this   city under most
extraordinary circumstances.      It was
the largest convention in  the   history
of the association and was   opened   iu
the   midst   of   and concurrently with
lhe greatest light the union   has   ever
yet uudfci'tii'ken.      The   most remarkable feature of the situation   however
is   the extreme   orderliness and   comparative smoothness with   which both
these events have heen  running   side
hy side.    There luus scarcely ever heen
seen   a greater   instance   of complete:
organization   and   control    of    great
foivi-s.      On   the one hand a battle involving 00,000 or  70.000  workmen   i.s
organized for the purpose of   winning
thc   nine-hour  day.     Everything   i.s
ready, and, as one might say'  "Touch
the   button   and the   machine will do
the rest."     Sure   enough,   the button
was touched,  and   from   that   out   it
looks very like as if  the machine was
doing and, in fact, has done  the   iv*st,
without, any further interference fiom
those who started it going.
Leaving their well-organized machine to do its work, having faith in
the law governing strikes���the first
elemont of that l;iw heing complete
organization���the very men who have
been most active in bringing on the
conflict, quietly and without the least
fear as to the result, betake themselves
from the immediate scene of action,
and as quietly sit down and legislate
new laws and improve the old ones to
meet new conditions in the interests of
and for the bettering of the conditions
of their fellow-workmen.
Occasional echoes reach the legislative hall from this somewhat scattered
fight afar off, but little heed is paid to
the rumbling sounds. For on thevery
day that the convention opened, the
president was in a position to make-
the triumphant declaration that "the
nine-hour day for machinists is won;
lhu ten-hour day has gone, never to
Perfect organization has in this instance, as it will in all similar cases,
served the purpose of the strikers
much better than a resort to lawlessness and disorder ev--*r could do.���Toronto Star.

That "you can't see beyond the poiut
of tlie pick," that "mining is a
gamble," thai "one man cm see under
the ground as fur as another" arc
excuses of men who believe in luck
and who fail to take cognizance of the
fait lhat lheir failutes 1110 dm*, in
most instances", lo lack of training or
experience, gome points heing overlooked lhat might have, been plain its*
day to 11 skilled miner. The old-iiiying
���"Tit. not in ourslai'.", hut in 0111-.elves
that, we are undeiling.-i," applies lo
mining as in everything else.
Mining men visit pio.-pccts every
day that inexperienced men think are
piospective bonanzas and walk away
knowing that every lea-otiable probability is against these prospects ever
amounting to anything. Would the
mining men feel this assuiance if they
couldn't see "beyond the point of the
p.Cl*.?" " *
Millions of dollars are invested in
mining propositions every year and
those investments arc nt least as
remimei alive as in vestments in other
lines of industry. Each recurring
year such investments become safer
and more |n oiluctive by virtue of the
increased knouledge and skill thai
come with extended study and experience. Tht- man whose mining theory
doesn't enable him to sec "beyond the
point of the pick" should follow the
homely, hut terse advice���"Trade the
theory off for a. yellow dog and then
shoot the dog."
Closing Down the St. Eugene.
The report as lo the probable closing
down of the St. Eugene  properties at
Movie  which appeared in The Miner
last Wednesday has been  confirmed.
The      property       will     close     down  -
about the end of this week.     For some
lime the" company   operating the  St.    ,
Eugene    have     been   shipping   their
concentiates    direct  to  Belgium* for���~.
both  smelling and   refining.     While
there   h,'.s  been h  profit in this, it was.
evidently not considered enough and it'
is   said   lhat for this reason thei e will
be a total close down.    This will be a
severe' blow UK-Moyie. as the town at
present,   depends   entirely   on the St.
Eugene   either   directly   or indirectly
for its-existence.   There   are  several
small properties being worked   in  the
vicinity of Movie,   but from the small
number  of men   employed   they   are
comparatively unimpoi tatit as regards
the town.   One of lhe best of these is
the Aurora group, on the. opposite side
of    the   lake  from   Moyie.   wliich   is
owned by the men who sold the   Lake
Shore, to | the Gooderham-BlitLkstock
corporation two years ago.    They are
well satisfied  with  the results already .
secured and will continue the working
of the  pioperty which will eventually
make a good mine fiom nil indications.
The same conditions which retard the
development of lead properties  everywhere    in   British   Columbia  at  the,
piesent-time.-will lilsokeep Ihe-Aurora���"-
fiom   being   worked beyond a certain
point until a lead   refinery  shall have
been established in Canada.   This also
applies to Lhe other pioperties lhat are
being worked  in  the neighborhood.���
More Smallpox in East Kootenay.
Provincial Constable Barnes of Fernie. who arrived in Nelson on Sunday
with a number of prisoners, reportB ���
1 that smallpox ha*.- broken out again
in East JCootenay. This time tho
di.-ea.se first showed itself among a
gang of men who were employed in
railway work, who were. living in a
ear near .Movie. When the disease
was first reported there were seventeen men in the car. Tho patient
was at once quarantined, and the
others sent on to Spnrwood, a small
station not far from Moyie. In a short
time four new cases developed, and
the entire party is still in quarantine.
Constable Uanics aiso says that three
cases of the disease*, have lieen reported
from Michel. This is a much greater
number of cases at one time than
there were during thu former outbreak.���Tribune.
