Buffalo, May 10.���There is practically  no change iu the strike situation along  the docks tonight, and the business of  this port is at a standstill. An agreement Avas reached today betAveen con-  eraetor Connors and, the striking grain  shovellers, in .Avliich both the-ni en'who  have stood by the contractor and the  strikers Avere to be taken into the neAy  grain shovellers' union. This practically  settled all the existing trouble as far as  the grain men Avere concerned, but  as they pledged themselves not to  return to Avork until the grieA-ances  of the striking freight handlers, coal  heaA^ers, ore, dock men and elevators  machinists have been remedied, there is  no telling'Avhen work on-tlie docks Avill  be resumed. In the m'eantime.A'esselmen  and shippers are losing. a great deal of  money. Millions of bushels of .grain .are  held back at Chicago" and Duluth, and  although there are A'essels to carry it to  Buffalo, A'essels owners Avill not take the  risk of having their boats tied up there  for an indefinite period.  MINE OWNERS OFFER $3 f  FOE   EIGHT-HOUR   SHIFTS  DAY  NKLSON, B. C, May lllh, IS!)!).  NOTION.  As the announcement has been made that the tfovorn-  menl, of liritisli Columbia purpose enforcing the amend-  uieiil to the Metalliferous Minos li spection Acl, inalciuK  eiftlit hours a wnrkii.g da,- for those employed under-  ground in mcliillilVmiiKni'ne-i; Sec It'll "\n per.-oiisliiill  ho employed undci'Ki'oiiuil iu any metalliferous mine 'or  more limn oulit hours iu every twoiity-fou hour-"; the;  undersigned, as repr. senliu^ one of the two parties  mainly aH'colcd. consider it ailvi-ahle if, make public  their v ewson Ihe. situation created by this uncalled I'or  legislation, ami to in< Ik-lulu \vh;it I heir line of net ion mil 4  inevitably be.  While the undersigned ��ro determined to respect aud  adhere to ihe laws of the pr.iv.nce, it, may bo pointed  out tliat this law is far-rejiehiny; in the injuries it must  indict upon the mining interests of the province, and on  the amount of wages earned by the men.  It means n ducinft the hours of labor in the mines from  twenty hours a day to sixteen hours, as many ofthe  mines are so eirounista ced that three shifts cannot be  worked to advantage. This means a reduction of twenty  per cent in the nmountof the production of many mines,  and a reduction of twenty per cent, in the development  work being carried on in mines preparing for production,  and a reduction in the supplies used in tho mines.  The mest amicable relations existed, and still exist, between the employers and employed at the mines. The  men were earning good wages, ejiual lo any being paid  in camps in the United Slates, and higher jthun those  paid iu many, and they were rendering good services for  these wages. If any discontent was rife at the exisl ing  state of afl'airs, it was not generally known. Ic is therefore deeply to he regretted tliat the legislature has seen  fl"; to disturb the existing harmony, to interfcro with the  growing prosperity of the mining districts, tb reduce the  wage-earning power of tho moil employed, and to interfere with the free right of contract hitherto enjoyed.  As to the future, after the 1st.Iune next, at the* mines  represented by the undersigned, the standard rate of  wages that will bo paid to skilled miners for an eight-  hours working day will be three dollars (S'1.00), and other  labor will necessarily be also paid for according to the  time worked.

Owing to the action of the British Columbia legislature  in enforcirg the eight-hour law in the Slocan, tho Silver-  lead mine owners of the district consider that they owe  it to tlieir employees, who are atl'ectcd by the change  rendered necessary by the operation of tho act, to place  their intentions with regard to il on record.  In the first place, tlie mine owners of this district were  . not consulted in any way as to this radical change in the  inining.law, and on being informed of the passage of, the  act," made oyery ell'ort in their power to have the law-  held in abeyance until II could be carefully considered  by, tliose interested.  It was pointed out that the standard rate of wages for  miner-,, ���f'i.oO for a ten-hour sliifl, was as high as paid  anywhere in the United States or Canada, and that tlii���.  rate was satisfactory to both mine owners and employes.  Tl was further pointed out that by reducing the hours'  of work from ten to eight hours the wage-earning capacity of the miner would be more than proportionately  reduced as far as the mine o�� ners arc concerned.  To give greater force and unanimity to the expressed  opinion of the mine owueis, a meeting of the Silver-Lead  Mine Owners' Association of British Columbia was convened in order Lo get an expression of opinion about  which there would he no uncertainty.  Tho purpose of this association is to foster and piotccl  the mining interests of the province, and it is not in any  sense a combination of employers against employes, as  the relations between the wage-earners and the employers have always been most friendly, and it is hoped will  continue so.  The mine owners were for their part quite willing to  continue lo pay S8.50 for ten hours work, but tho enforcement of the ciglit-lioii'- law having rendered this  impossible, they nowoderto pay minersatthe rate of ��3.00  pereight-liourshift, thisrate being higher in proportion to  the hours worked than the old rale.  To give cflect to this intention a.reSohition yfas passed  wat aiiHeetii)grOf^tho-Si!vci'=.Lu:ul=JIiuo=0\vwor.i���Association held in Sandon on May the Sth, as foliowsJ:  "That it is the sense of mine representatives, bf, this  association that the statidai'd rate of wages paid to  miners bo iii future ��3.00 per clay Of eight hours."  This resolution was signed by the representatives of  the mines whoso names are hereto appended.  These mines wish to state tliat as the ejght-hour law  'isj to be enforced not later than jfiinc the 12th. tliey are  ready toh'i'e niiiiors on and after Julio tho 1st, at tlio  above rate: -And they further wish j,�� to l,,e understood  that thin chanyo iwthe Workinghoiirsar.d the consequent  contract ion of tho AyngO-eiirning cajiaejty of Lho minor,  was forced upon them by the Act of the British I'oU  umhia legislature and was entirely unsought for by them.  TRANSVAAL SORE IS RE-OPENED  ARRESTING BRITISH OFFICERS.  Associated I'ress.

It is said  that tlie enlistment roster includes 2000  men, and that a number of incriminating  documents Avere found* at the time the  arrests Avere made.

In connection Avith the request of the  Slocan Ore Purchasing Company to have  Poplar street opened up, alderman Thomson moAred that the city call for tenders  for the Avork to be in on Friday: The  intention of the council is to make a 12-.o  foot roadAvay the cost of Avhicli has been  estimated at $850, of Avhieh sum the  sampler company agreed to contribute  one-third.  Mayor ���'.Neelands called the attention of  the council to the fact that the Salvation  Army desired permission to put up a  brick-veneer building, Avith a tin roof, in  the rear of the residence recently purchased from Harold Selous, Avhicli is  within-the fire limits.  Alderman  Fletcher  said  that he  did  not consider that it Avould be Avise  for  the council to consent to any evasions of  the fire ; limits  bykvw.     If   the council  established   any   such  precedent,  there  would be no end of sucli applications as  the one before  the  council.    No action  Avas taken -with respect to the application.  E. C.

The   members   of   the  council Avere all of the opinion  that the  plan suggested by the solicitor would be  merely an  evasion  of the provisions of.:  the   bylaw,   the   permitting   of   which;  Avould destroy the object of the  bylawvY;;  The council decided, as the Traves appli-Yj  cation would go Ijef ore the fire wardens^ 7  to request the wardehs7^to  enforce coni^jY  pliaiice^Ayith the;Spip|^ahd;(i  ftlder^Y  by��aldermanw,i;  yT-r\'"'"i'''l''fl��''il"-'1".:ViAf".�� "��"."   *>SS*�� *! pF?'.y-"s..''K,4^:^%.%s'"'%i.'^':':\,���>Sf  I'tkP   %,��f\'l.'.fl-''.

Toronto News.  That royal blood flows in tlie veins of  every Irishman is  a  generally  conceded  genealogical fact that few Aviso men will  dispute���in the presence of an Irishman.  The iron heel of the despot litis at various  times been firmly  planted  on  his  neck,  but never with sufficient force to stop his  tongue from wagging in defiance of constituted authority, or in agitating for his  right to do as he pleased with his own or  other people's   possessions.    -.Heretofore  the royal Irish have confined' their pretensions to the thrones  of the  different  -provinces of the  Emerald  Isle,  but the  disturbance  in  the  Philippines  has  re-  A*ealed the fact that the rebel Aguinaldo,  'who is contending Avith Uncle Samuel for  supremacy in the archipelago, is also an  Irishman.    AVe might have  known that  none but a native of the Green Isle could  offer so stout a resistance to tlie* forces of  the United States,  but,  strange to say,  the thought did not occur to us till the  following pretty'"'story' was  brought to  our  notice by  the  Kingston  Freeman:  "Mr.      Peter     Scanliiii,      of     Newark  avenue'    Jersey    City,    Avhose    reputation    for   A'eracity     is     excellent,    declares      that      Aguinaldo,      who      is  giving the Americans so much trouble in  the  Philiijpiues, is  thec son of ah Irishman.

Notwithstanding the favorable reports  that come from the Transvaal a.s to the  intentions of president Kriiger, there is a  feeling of uneasiness among tlie Boers at  the steady and almost imperceptible increase of the British force in their neighborhood.    There are   already   in South  Africa nearly  20,000 British soldiers���a  force only G000 less than would be able to  cope  Avith any army, that the republic  could put into  the field.    The  Boers. believe  that the presence of this force is a  menace  to tlieir independence, and that  'Great Britain is determined to take steps  to insist on the recognition of her suzerainty.    Indeed, many of them go further,  and  declare   that * Mr.  Chamberlain has  made up his mind to resume possession of  the Transvaal.    Their alarm is not diminished by the knowledge that they can no  longer   count   ou   the    support   of   the  kaiser, who appears to have become convinced that the  government of president  Kruger is responsible for all the troubles  that threaten the existence of the republic and the peace of South Africa.  A New Use for the Telephone.  A good story of a young man, Avho, besides being bf the spendthrift order, is a  splendid mimic, and ean imitate his  father's Aroice to a nicety. Not long ago  the young man wanted, Avithout delay,  some money to pay a bill, and he knew  that his father would treat a request for  the same with cold contempt. Waiting  till he kneAV that his father would be  away, he went to the telephone call-room  and rang up the office, calling, for the  cashier. The cashier AA'as forthcoming,  and when he was at the other end the  youiigman imitated his sire's voice.  .^g-��sa#,*v^^^  <s"M|o|.5&"i��;fe  to done in ten, but aside from this speculative element in the case, is it well for  the British Columbia mine owners to giAre  the eastern public the idea- that they are  Avorking on such a narroAv margin tliat  an increase in the price of labor avou Id  force them  to shut down?
