Kaslo, May 19.—W. J. Taviss has returned from Duncan City, Avhere he has
established an ofiice. He reports that
lots have started to sell lively, and that
business is going to be lively in that district this year. Already live applications
haA'e been made for liquor licenses and
more are likely to be made, if licenses
are granted the OAvners will open up at
either of the tliree prospective toAA'ns,
Argenta, Lardo or Duncan City. At
present there is a hotel at Argenta,
managed by W. 11. Bell, and the Simpson
brothers have one at Duncan City.
Archie Fletcher is rushing one up at
Marsh Adams, avIio has been chief of
police here for some years, has sent in
his resignation to take effect (in June 1st.
He is going to takeover the management
of the Leland hotel. It is not known
avIio his successor Avill be, but tliere is
considerable riA'aliy betAveen the several
aspirants. The only names mentioned in
connection Avith the position at present
are constable Houston, S. Men/.ie, and .1.
Chapman. The police commissioner are
mayor Hartin, alderman J. D. Moore and
Hamilton Byers.
The early closing movement promises
to be a very short-lived innovation. Tonight seA'eral of the principal stores have
broken the agreement and are keeping
open. They claim that this action is
brought about by a boot and shoe merchant, aa'Iio has practically taken no heed of
the agreement since he signed it and has
kept open almost every night after 8
o'clock. Unless they again come to an
agreement, practically all the stores will
be kept open tpmorroAV night. It is a
pity to see the merchants take such
short-sighted action, after all mutually
agreeing to close duriug the summer
months. There AA'ill be a return to the
. old system of fifteen hours a day for the
New Denver.
Neav Denver,-May 19.—The arriAal of
The Tribune here on Wednesday, with
the notice therein of the determination
of the various Slocan mines to meet the
enforcement of the" eight-hour laAA' by
the proffer of $3 per shift, caused no
little stir. It has been felt that such a
step AAras probable, and uoav that the certainty has been announced, the...mining'
public are at once brought to the testing
point on the question. Naturally enough,
The British America Corporation has employed the best talent available AA'ith regard to this form of applying electric
power. Similar plants to the one projected are in successful operation at
Cripple Creek. Mr. Carlyle Avas underground yesterday for the first time since
he injured his knee last avintor. I-A'ery-
body is glad to knoAV that his perfect recovery is only a question of time.
Many of the less AA'ell-appointed mines
are having the usual trouble Avith surface
water. The Homestake has found it necessary to put in a iicav pump, and sinking has been temporarily suspended on
the Velvet. Work will be under AA'ay on
the neAV Canadian Pacific railAA'ay depot
tomorroAV.    It will be ready  by July 1st.
Ymir, May 19.—Phil White, superintendent of the Wilcox, operated by the
Broken Hill company, is in toAvn this
morning and reports all Avork going on
satisfactorily. Stephen Byu'ater, president of the .company, Avent to Rossland
yesterday on business in connection Avith
the mine. S. S. Fowler has completed
his report on the Dundee mine. It is current that the London & British Columbia
Goldsfields Avill make a bid for the Dundee property if their engineer's report be
more than usually satisfactory. The:
Dundee is a good mine. All that is needed
is capital to develop it systematically,
and the London & British Columbia
people have the capital. The Ymir mill
is shut doAvn on account of an accident
to the rock crusher. The concentrates
are being shipped steadily. S. S. FoAvler
AArent up to the Ymir mine this forenoon
accompanied by Mr. and Mrs. Dundee.
Word has been received from S. L. Long,
general manager of the Porto Rico, thane Avill be out at the end of the month to
commence operations oii the 1st June,
and for the foreman to be on the lookout
for men, and there, will be ample wood
Pete   the  Packer  returned  yesterday
AA'ith  his  bride,  and  AA'as  greeted  with,
quite'an-ovation at the raihA'ay station.

Victoria, May 19.—Dr. Milne avIio has
just returned from OttiiAA'a is sanguine
that the Dominion subsidy will be granted this year to the Victoria, 'Vancouver
& Eastern RaihA'ay. The provincial
legislature gaA'e the scheme a black eye
during the last session by repealing tlie
subsidy act under Avhicli a bonus AA'as
provided for the road. Mr. Milne gives
a hint of possible friction betAA'een the
federal and provincial goA'crnnieiits on
this matter. He says : "VVe have eA'ery
assurance of a grant at this session of the liouse. The OttaAva
government also considers the action
of the present provincial goA'ernment in
cancelling the aid granted and iu the repudiation of the agreement made with-
the raihA'ay company as a A'ery serious
matter for the province, as Avell as unfair,
and unjust, especially after the construction of the line had been commenced."

Rossland, May 10.—The experimental
AA'orking of the eight-hour system has
not been a success from the miue OAvners'
point of vieAV. Expenses haA'e largely
increased in proportion to the amount of
work done. This is reported ou the
authority of W. A. Carlyle, superinten-
tendent of the B. A. C. mines. It is practically certain that combined action Avill
be taken by the mine OAvners in Rossland
to adjust the scale of wages to the eight-
hour laAA'. The Miners' Union has ahvays
been freely recognized as a factor in
Iiossland industry, and has the respect
both of the mine OAvners and the community, AA'hile the greatest harmony has al-
AA'ays existed. It is most likely that the
matter will be arranged, as the OAvners
have shoAvn every disposition to be reasonable in their dealings With the men.

Trouble Threatened.
Atlanta, Georgia, May 19.—The Journal publishes a story, in Avhieh it is stated that ah anonymous letter received' at
Palmetto declares that the toAArii Avill be
filled upon by negi'o excursionists 011
Saturday night. As tlie story goes, the
latter declares that tlie negroes going to
Columbus from Atlanta on Saturday
night, to attend a picnie, will use Winchesters and lire from the windows, While
dynamite will be used to destroy property fronting on the rftihvtiy. The
Avhites say they Can defend tlie toA\?n_ and
the only feat" is that some- reckless negro
might perhaps fire a single shot, AA'hich
Avould result in the Avreyking of the train.
The mayor has adA'ised the i-ailroad officials to run the train in daytime instead
of at night

A. -R. Gray of this city, avIio occupied
the position of deputy commissioner of
labor statistics under the " Bureau of Labor Statistics and Industrial Disputes
Conciliation and Arbitration Act, 1893 ",
(since repealed), and acted as deputy
commissioner of labor, conciliation, and
arbitration under the " Labor Conciliation and Arbitration Act. ISO!," has furnished Thh TaiHUNi. Avith a copy of the
latter Act, under which labor disputes in
the province Ave re smoothed over, while
he acted as deputy commissioner.
Mr.  Gray,   avIio   is  p:o-ably  the  best
posted man in  the province on the Act,
(he  drafted   it),  explained that there is
nothing compulsory Avhatever in the Act,
except in cases Avhere on a reference to a
council of arbitration the parties  to the
dispute agree to be bound by the  award
thereof, Avhen the aAvard may be made a
rule of court, cnforcable by legal process.
The Act proAides for councils of conciliation,  to  be  convened on application of
either party to the dispute; but only in
the eA'ont of the other party  to  the dispute being willing to make a reference to
u council of conciliation.    In the event'of'
no  agreement being  arriA'ed at by the
council of conciliation, said  council may
agree to refer the dispute to a council of
arbitration ; but the aAA'ard is  not  binding unless it be agreed upon that it shall
be so before  the reference  is  made.    A
council of; arbitration  may  be convened
direct, Avithout a previous reference to a
council of conciliation;    The president of
the council of arbitration shtill.be a judge

The  same question 'troubled the master mind  of the great lord Bacon, who, while ex-j  tolling the belief of .truth as the "sovereign good of human nature," yet cyhieally  remarks that "a mixture of a lie doth ever  add pleasure." For truth is too naked  and bare in tho daylight. Who of us  would care to lay bare the history of his  life? How sad would be the world were,  all vain opinions,'flattering hopes, colored'  imaginations and poetic fantasies to be;  forever blotted out!  There are some truths and truisms  which have been forced upon us unwit-'  tingly, have followed us from the days-of  childhood until the years of discretion  have been reached, when we in turn attempt to inculcate the same principles into theminds ofour children.  What bare-faced old liars those men of  old were, the sayings of whom are now  condensed into -what are known in. the  vulgar tongue as maxims or proverbs !  1 know of nothing more misleading or  more utterly  false  than 'the'maxim, "a  bird  in the-hand  is  worth two  in ��� the  bush."

I was but young then, some nine years  at most, but, I regret to say, I . was  precocious, and I uttered a word which  was unseemly to say: the >least.  Unfortunately, ruy father overheard  the remark and forthwith administered  his paternal justice, embittered not a  little by my protest that I had often  heard him use tho same word. My father  was a strong man, and next day I stood  up to write my copy!  Somehow I have always remembered  that maxim.

Surely we are not to bo  drawn to the conclusion that moss means  riches ; for, if so, who would not be a rolling stone? Does any man of "good understanding" really long for riches? Let  us turn to Francis Bacon again. "I cannot call riches better than the baggage of  virtue. For as the baggage is to an army,  so is riches to virtue. It can not be spared or left behind,ibut it hindereth the  inarch. Yea audthe care of itsometiines  loseth or disturbeth the victory." Aiid  again���"Of great riches there is no real  use, except it be in the distribution." In  other words (western style), we can have  no use for a pile of 'dollars, except to  "blow them in" with our friends.  Casting filthy lucre aside, I maintain  ���thatthe rolling stone, .assuming that he is  a man of ordinary intelligence and observation, can gather an abundance of moss,  in the shape of general information concerning men, matters and many lands  which will stand him-in. good stead when  evil days cOmeupon him.

But if avc are Wise, wti shrtll:  ceiise vain comparisons and  go down on  - iir knees,? likeLiinueus before the gorse,  iiierely to thank the Supreme Beiug for  all these marvellous works of His hand.  The spring, the summer, the autumn, the  winter come and go, each bringing us some  timely blossom or berry, which, as we  hold it in oiir hand and meditate on its  exquisiteness, seems incomparable.  I haA'e learnt the names of these beautiful flowers, but dare not attempt to  spell it. They took me back to days,  when, as a child, I sought for the early  daffodils by the liver banks of northern  England.  For spring is the time of the coming of  the daffodil, when the winter rigors have  abated, when the birds have:chosen their  mates and are a building, avIiou the very  winds, though they blow boisterously and  cold, have that ring of life and hope in  them so different from the angry sobbing  gales of autumn. It did not require a  great stretch ofthe imagination to transform these golden glories into daffodils,  the dowers beloved of poets out of  nicmory, that moved Herrick to tears,  whose "golden hosts" setWordsworth's  heart dancing with glee, and of which  Shakespeare wrote:  "That come before the swallow dares,- ancl take  The winds of March with beauty."  My heart felt as it were that of a little  child once more, and the burden of life  fell  from me.    Then   with a hoarse  roar  FULL LINE OF  came the storm wind with a blinding sleet,  and I closed my book and hurried back  to the. reality of life, once more to bury  myself, a lonely wanderer and outcast, in  a "two bit" restaurant.
