Iiotli tlie writer of  tiie Tribune despatches nnd -Mr. Poloy  Iny considerable stress on Lilt- contract  system n.s one* of thi: causes of tlio  strike.    Tin! Tribune despatch says-  '���������The contract sysLt'in is really piece  work, nml each minor is paid according to his production. The system  has worked Io tho advantage of the  miners. The average wage paid to  minors in the "War I'.agle under the  plan liitri been i-,\.'2T> por day of eight  hours. As^istaiit'iii.'iii.-iger Thompson  in' the* Le*i!oi declares that thcavevagu  for miners on developmoiili in his  mines has been from !j!-l.s.O lo 31.7*) n  shift.

Thoy declare lhat tliey get  work done i'roni 20 to -IU per cent  cheaper on tliis basis,*, though miners  make an average of 7.1 cents por day  more than whi.*n they worked I'or the  old wage of SjiU.ol) a clay. The explanation of, this ollered by Mv.  Thompson is lhat when working for a  Hal rate of wages tho men shirked  from Si to "SO per ceil I of their time,  ���������'and thev were encouraged to shirk  hy tlio union, whicli wanted to got  tho prodncin^'capacUry"of"' each 'man  as low its possible so as to employ the  largest number of men possible,'' says  iir. Thompson."  . Mr. "Foley says: "In two or three  of tlie principal mines tho contract  .system partially prevails. Contractors  consisting of noi one third of the men  employed underground, are making  but are easilv doing one  iavs"    work     for     that  1-.-���������*-.

Ll'is the opinion of practical miners  convert-ant willi Iho situation lhat at.  the price por foot paid, and it has  dropped IK) por cent in the lust year  and is still declining, with an average  day's work !*>-' would scarcely be tho  standard.  If a man cannot make a certain  average he is told to take a walk, the  result lieing thai each individual is  compelled to cut his fellows throat in  order tcrhold his job, and somo writers  by adopting the scale of the " con-  tractois who does nearly double the  average amoitnl'oi' work try to convey to the world the impression that  -tlio-standard���������--wage���������iii-'-'vOssl.ind���������is  higher than elsewhere, and that the  men are unreasonable in asking an  increase, when the fact is thoy. have a  legitimate reason for complaint."  On the wage question tlie Tribune  writer says:  "It is   the   avowed   purpose   ot the  Federation oT Aimers to gtt a  uniform  scale of wages  I'or every   man under  ground.      The union usscris Unit skill  should   b-' __nn factor in determining  Iho wage,    l'he most ignorant mucker  .shoveling rock into a car deserves the  siinio, in the opinion of the Federation  of Labor us the most highly skilled  miner handling 11 machine.    This is no  new   theory.     It has been pioclaimeci  time     and   again,   and     it   bus   been  asserted   here   now   by    the   highest  oHit'liilb of the   union.    This has been  been  the   sore   point   for years in the  Coeur cl'Alum's, but it  has.ret-ullc.l  in  victory* for the union, save in the case  of Iho Bunker Hill and Sullivan mini s.  In the other Ooour d'Alenes propei-tic-  tnineis   and   muckers   alike   draw    a  niiit'orm wage of *"i.*.r-.t).     In  Butte  tlie  victory   ot   unions has  b.-eii aliM.lnlo.  Tliere  all   men   underground get $3.:"i0  por shift of eight hours.     For year*,  the. Federation loaders   have   tried  to  raise the scale for muckers.    Realizing  that  it   would   be * impossible   to get  S'5.50 for muckers nt   one   stroke here  tlio. loaders have set limit* first stake at  ,<���������!.*.    With  thai point won they might  bo in a position to demand %'3.'tf) tor all  underground men.  Mr. Foley protests against the mi--  leailing statement as to the* wages  made in the Rossland .Minor as follows;  'In the lirst plan* S.'^ier day is not the  standard wages fur miners iu most  camps in the mountain region, but  ,���������5:1.50 for inncliineiiien and $:. and 8.'.">0  for hammermen, whilst mucker***  receive S2.n0 to ^'.t.Tii.  Whilst wages range slightly below  thisiute iu California, nlieie living is  10 per cent, lower than in Ko*-si'iiid. in  Vii giniii* and oilier camps in Nevada  Si is the standard wage for all   under  ground work.    The s'aiiie rule   obtains  in ninny camps in Arizona,.

Mr. Foley'.-opinion on the real re-  spon.-.ibility for t lie' strike resting on  the mine ni.inageis closely resemble.**,  .Mr. .MclCaiie's. Bo says: "Opinions  differ as 10 Llu-reason why tbe manage!.** have for some lime boon living  to foment trouble. There is no clill'er-  once of opinion .is lo ils being their  object to do so. .Some hold that tiicy  propose to use it as an exrtue to cut  wages: ol hers again thai a general  disrupt ion of niganixed labor is the  object. But to my mind there U an  additional lenson 1 hat lias been partly  at least lost sight of, anil that is the  over-valuation of the IS. A. O. and  oilier stocks on Lhe __.ngiish 111,11 keD a  result of exaggerated reports sent  aciossthe water by the managers,  aided by Rossland wildcat promoter.,  in order I o create a demand for theii  wares. Bioiiiiseddivideiids not materialising, labor troubles become very  useful.  As to the chances of a speedy settlement the Tribune writer is not very  encouraging.     He-.ays:  ������������������Trier., '.is liltle chance of settlement. If it were only a question of a  $:> wage for muckers, it seems likely  that managers -McDonald and Kiiliy  would give in, but it i.s well known  that thc*3' consider tho frl'3 demand but  the opening weiige I'or further ennres:-  sicuis. ��������� and thoy are st.-iiidimr Iii 111  against accepting the union demands.  Tliey consider that thoy might .is well  make a light with the union now as  two or thiee years from now.' There  is excellent reason.for believing that  tliey arc supported in this contention  by the directors of their companies.  That is why this strike is so serious for  Lhe welfare of the camp. Rossland  .business men look for an absolute cessation" of 'operations 'foi- 'jt'n'fint 'six  months. J11 support of 'that lhey*  point to the action of the War Eagle  and Centre Star in disch irging all the  oflice" force. Jt is supposed that in  six month the"union miners here will  have scattered from town, and it will  be possible to brine: in a new new of  nun-union miners. , I_.;_sl year .Mr. McDonald announced Ihnl if his companies were foicedlo thd expense of a  strike tbe mines ^would reopen only  iiuder a ������2 and $3 scale. He was -tsked  a few clays ago.whether this condition  still held good. He answered: "!  hayereceived.no contrary advice fiom  the management in London." It was  conceded that the miners in Rossland  were as fine 11 body of woikmen as  could be found in the Northwest.  They had generally the respect of their  employers. One of the worst features  of the. strike is that those men have  scattered to tiie ends of earth.';  AFFAIS8 IN  m������  *.5g*  ft Ift  Business and General Locals of  Interest to Those Watching"  Events in thc Big Cold Belt  Busine.-s is still al high water mark  at Camborne.

The ladies of the committee appointed   by   the   four   churches   to colled  .-.ubscriptions in   aid   of   the   hospital  building fund have made an   excellent  .-hewing, of which the rejiort  of   their  work in another column   is   sufficient  evidence.    Over seven hundred dollars  has heen subscribed  mostly   in   small  .sums   by   their   exertions and a large  number    of   people      have.     by   the  personal house to house visits of the*e  ladies, been given an   opporlunilv   to  contribute their mite, .something they  were willing enough to do  but   would  never perhaps have done,     except for  the chance thus afforded lliem.      This  kind   of   begging   is   bard   work, the  very   hardest   kind   of   work and the  ladies of the   committee   deserve   the  hearty  thanks   of the community for  the very thorough  and   faithful   way  in which they carried   out their   task.  -At the same time we cannot a fiord   to  let them go at that.      11   would   he a  thousand   pities   if  this    committee,  which has proved itself so capable and  earnest,   were   to   dissolve    without  making   an -��������� effort    to     perpetuate  itself     in     a     permanent        Ladies  Hospital ��������� Aid     Association.        True.  Lhey     have    faithfully    carried    out  ,tiie work  which they wore appointed  todo,   at the  same time we have got  to have a Ladies'Aid for the. hospilal  if.the undertaking is  going-to    be   a  .success and t.he committer, whiih is at  present n. definite organization, would  .-.n'-.-j-u ��������� ���������  make an admirable   nucleus    for the  : cm a  formation of such an association. The  committee is ,a- recognized body and  certiinly posesses the right, wliich  would be admitted without a dissenting voice, of calling a meeting of the  ladies of Kevelstoke for-.he purpose of  :.*.-, *      . t  forming a regular and permanent'  Ladies' Hospital Aid .Society.

From the Mining Millionaire's  Palace to* the Country Poor  House.  A despatch from Heno, Nevada, to  the San Francisco. .Mulletin snys lhat  Mis. Sandy Bowers, once a I'.iiiinu-  bi'.'i.ity in Reno, has been assigned In  the Country pnorliousL'.  So manv decades have passed since  Mr. and Mrs. Sandy Bowers ruled  socially in what was then the booming  mining town nf Reno that few remain  who have recollection of the lavish  receptions at the family mansion, the  splendid hospitality, the wine, t.l'.e  music and all that helps to nourish  pleasure and attract so-called friend**.  ���������'Sandy" Bowers was a successful  speculator and owned a lai ge block of  shares in mure than one of the neb  Comstock mines. His income was so  great that he scant* knew how to  spend it. I-'xlravagance resulted, and  tliere was Rome things that Sandy did  lli*ilg*i*.e him lhe name of the "bonanza king'' and amused . the more  sedate millionaires of those palmy  times. Thousands were thrown about  like so many dollars and elaborate  dinners were freijiie.nl. and astonishing  to less generous money makers.  At one time Bowers took a notion  that he wanted to go to iMirope. visit,  li.iigl.ind and introduce his wife to  Queen Victoria, .lust liefore. departure  he gave a dinner al I.he International  hotel of Ifeno at which a score of  guests were scaled. The dinner cost  hiiiV 8-J.U1X). From Keno'Jlowi.rs went  to Gold Mill and bid bis friends good-  hy at another feast that netted i^r-IX)  incxpcn.se. The trip to Furope cost  825.(100. wliich .sum was setaside especially for the purpose. H is said that  the little -Mexican band of four pieces  that played at the farewell banquet  was paid SjiaOO I'or the work.  AV'hen Sandy Bowers died ho lefthis  wife quite a, fortune, but the estate  was not so large as was expected.  "Wilful waste had reduced the million  or more to a, hundred thousand. M rs.  Bowers continued to live .expensively,  and when her fortune commenced to  wane she tried to recoup it on the  slock board. She lost and poverty  graduallv   crept,   upon     her. Fair  weather   friends    vanished,    poverty  was victor and then the jioorhouse.  THE SONG OF THE LOCOMOTIVE  fl'rnin tlie Chicago I"t������������������t-_������  Ho!    Uo!

Thf .Miniu'eapolis Tribune .-ays thai  .Mrs. Knigi'i- "Iil<*i**.lly died iu the  l:i**t ditch in defense of her eoutili-y,"  Thi.s kind of Miutlling heroic- over the  evo-SMvely common plarp is what  makes the American pie.****, the laughing >to<'k ofcivili-.itinij. .Mr-. Kruger  did not* die iu the InM (,r any other  ditch in defense of her emintry or in  defense of anything. She died, just  the same a.-' any other old lady, in hor  lied in her own home, the recipient to  the la.it of every attention ami honour  that the soldiers of the Kinpire could  devise to bestow upon her. Tliere is  nothing any more heroic about her  than tliere is about her husband,  dying by inches in self imposed exile  from the country, which his own pig  headed and crazy policy has,, ruined  and which, he has abandoned to its  fate, onlv fortunate in having fallen  . into the.hands of the most kindly and  generous conquerors on record. It is  hopeless for the American press to  try and galvanize itself into the belief  tliat these people are martyrs. Tl e  obstinate forgiveness of the Imperial  authorities steadily refuses to create  anv of that class of people.   The bitter  jy-iT-1 in  years ago it brought about $.">. Today  the Siemens & Halske Electrical company is said to use one-fifth of the out- j tm'_* cjf.v  put of the world. Since the flooding  of the platinum mines in the Transvaal, which occurred after the break-  iugoutof the liner war. the world ha-,  had to rely on Siberia for its supply of  the while metal. This supply is not  increasing, but the demand for the  metal is.  In the manufacutre of rrui ihi en fur  the compounding of certain chemical*,  essential in modern medicine, platinum  only can be used bccmisi; it is the i n'y  metal that will wilbsiai.tl the jxixyh  teinperatiue ipquiieil.

One cause for the -rareity uf the  metal is .said to have l).***n lhe demand  for plat iniiiii-fllli-hed photographs,  ('ne large dealersay*. : "The plat ilium  photograph has been a fail that has  caused thc consumption of a great,  deal of lhe. precious lnH.il. -V beautiful effect is procured by lhe n.-e of the  platinum paper, and those desiring  high class pictures have insisted on  tiie platinum. Other things would  have done as well, silver for instance,  b.il. the fail was started, ami has been  growing since. This lad existed also  in Kurope, arid led t.o tin: introduction  of a bill prohibiting the. use of 'white  gold'in photography. If thc price  continues to go up, and there, is every  prospect that il will, the metal will be  too expensive to use in  photography.'  Practically all or tliu melnl Ibtt is  not used in medicine and photography  it used in the manufacture of incand ������  scent bulbs and other electri'-al apparatus. Users of tin; metal have looked  for the discovery of the platinum in  the Klondike and other northern mining regions, but no finds out of Siberia  have heen made.  Mammoth Minstrel Amalgamation.

In  the   New  England   slates  there  are   tommunitie*,   upon    whom    the  elfectofa too fieijnent occurrence  in  their iuid-.t   of  religious revivals has  been that  they have become entirely  iinic*-pon_*ive to any religious teaching  whatsoever,    hutii    communities   are  known iu  Ithe   parlance   of religious  conventions   ,u ila-   ������������������burnt   out".dislricl t..    This is a  "burnt out." generation.    It has supped full on sensationalism till it has become almost insensible lo any stimulus   except   such as  afreets   its    immediate    self   interest.  Like its forefatheis   it   will  stampede  in hundreds to the end of the earth in  the pur*-uit of  riches   bnt   unlike  its  forefathers   it has  lost   ihe   power of  1 espouse to any less   material   appeal.  If  slavery   was   in   existence    in the  Southern .States today thu publication  of   Uncle Tom's   Cabin   would  never  stir the men of the   north   to   war in  outer lo abolish it.    Here is this hook,  the   Octopus,    compared      willi    the  Zolaesque powerjaiul force of whicli, us  .1 portrayal  of real life, of living and  biealhing  humanity.    Uncle    Tom's  Cabin is only a   Sunday   school tract.  Here is this book  dealing with  conditions known and familiar in the main  to everybody  in every community on  tho  continent of North America, conditions admittedly of pressing importance, hurtying forward with gigantic  strides to a crisis, the nature of which  no man is bold enough to foretell. The  book   deals    wilh   these     conditions  with    a    terrible     and      overpowering     force     but     it.    will     have    110  possitive elfeet  whatever.    It   is not  that   we   do    not recognize the awful  truth of the terrible phase of modern  civilization presented by the hook, the  snuggle    between   the   helpless   dis-  oiganized ranks   of society at   large,  beti a fed  and   befooled by its nominal  rulers and  pi electors and the secret,  impalpable,   relentless   forces cieated  bs the aggregation of  vast   capital in  the hands ot the few.     Wa recognize  these things are so but effort seems to  be paralyzed.    Our society is  a sham,'  our   politics   are   a   sham,   our   very  religion is as much   of  a sham as we.  can make it. We cannot hesaid,perhaps,  to -'love to have it so." but the springs  of action   saem to he lost.     The race,  whicli   created   political    and    social  libetty for humanity,   stands-by "and   -  watches, theopen foigingof new chains  for its own   limbs   in   abject helpless-' "  ness.  It is significant Ihat'eyen this book  which so.terrihiy.pictures_pne episode,  an episode which by the way is stated  to be founded on historical fact, of the'  strife-between capital and society,  makes no attempt to suggest any  remedy for the conditions w Inch it' so  incisively portrays. To the'writer the *  railway is one lorce and the .wheat is  another and man is nothing. Such a  creed as that is a mere confession' of  impotence and is more over demonstrably untrue. The railway is .no  mote a force per se than is a country  lane leading between two farms. . The  wheat-or any other natural product -  cannot except in a very strained, and  unnatural way of speaking be called a.  force at all. -So far from man being  nothing, it is man's greed and selfishness, abusing in the one case the  instrument which man himself created,  the railway and in theother the gift of  God, the wheat, coal, ore\ir whatever  it may chance I o be, which places  inanimate things even in a position to  resemble forces. One critic of .Mr.  Norris'book-complains that-it does-  not recognize the undoubted benefits  which the Southern Pacific has con-  ferred on Califoi nia. _  A nd _ the. e_ are   .  people in western Canacia. who appear  to he   equally   unable   to   distinguish  between the.undoubted benefits which  tlie construction of  the   C.P.R.   conferred  on   this  Dominion    and    the  undoubted   evils   accompanying,    tlie  present abuse of the  load   by  capital,  under the stress and compulsion of the  glorified and systematic:  greed,  which  we call competition.     It  wns   human  reason that made locomotion by steam  possible, it was human foresight which  conceived   the  vast   projects   of   the  irnnscnnlincntal roads of Canada  and  Ameriia,   it   was   human   pluck   and  energy which   girdled   the   unknown  wilderness of  the   great  plains   with  hands of steel, which piarred the lonely  canyons of the   Rockies   and   bridged  the hitherto unfetlet ed torrents of the  west.    Have, we in lining this   created  some kind of a Frankenstein   monster  beyond collection or control   of   the  puny creatures, whii h   made   it?      Is  model 11 society 10 pei i.������h at the   hands  of its   gieatest* achievement?     Is     it  ntteily beyond   iiiuu power   to   check  the mere human *<i.lfishness,   which   is  convening    an     inst: ument,     which ,  should subserve only   the   welfare  of  mankind, into   a   foice   of   evil   and  oppression?   If it  be  really  so,  then  modern civilisation has heard  its  own  death warrant.    If the   Anglo  Saxon "  race,   which   drawing   its   inspiration  from   tbe   Biblical  doctrine   of     the  transcendent    importance    ot    each  individual soul of man, gave this world  civil and religious freedom, is going by  its actions, if not in so many words, tn  subscribe lo   the  creed  that*  man   is  really an impertinent and  superfluous  nothing on the face of the  earth   nnd  is going to lie content to  wait    with'  folded hands to see what  the  end  of  forces, mainly created  by  their . own  skill and understanding, is going to be,  then the end is not very far - off.
