Premier  Dupuy  said   the  state of the employees AA'as   not  such   as  to  alloAV  any  of  them   going on strike,  and if the postmen did not  resume Avork  they AA'ould be replaced  by cithers,  government would yield to no such  initiation.

Today, hoAveA'er, a feAV of the more hotheaded leaders of the grain shoA'elers, notably president McMahon of the grain  shoA'elers' union, succeeded in getting the  men to repudiate their agreement AA'ith  the bishop, and tonight the prospect of a  settlement of the trouble is more remote  than ever.

The  Mine   OAvners'  ProtectiAe   Associations of Nelson and Sandon have issued a  notice that they will not pay  more than  $. a day to skilled miners from and after  June 12th, the  date  1'iKod  for the going  into  effect  of  the eight-hour laAA'.    The  Miners' Unions of Nelson,  Sandon, Ymir  and iiossland   have not yet  been heard  from, although  delegates from   the four  unions held a conference on the question  at Nelson on Saturday last.    It  is generally bdieA'ed,   hoAA'ever, that  the   unions  will stick out for the rate of  AA'ages  iioav  paid, and if they do there is sure to be a  suspension of Avork iu some bf the mines.  If the mine oAA'iiers have the  right to  say that they AA'ill not pay more than $3  a day for skilled labor, surely the skilled  Avorkers haA'e an equal right to say that  they Avill not Avork for less  than $3.50 a  day.    If the one side has the right to or-.  ganize   for    self-protection,   surely   the  other side slipu.,1 uot  be^ ntp.lii.weri   P-"  taking   similar action.     If neither side  Avill listen to reason, The Tribune is in  faA'or of enforcing a laAV that Avas passed  to meet -just such conditions  as may result from the enforcement of  the  eight-  hour hiAAv   The enforcement of the laAvis  in the hands of the  proA'incial  goA'ernment,     AND      THE      GOVERNMENT  SHOULD SEE THAT IT IS ENFORCED.  The'laAv Ave refer to Avas passed��� in   1894,  ancl is  entitled  the "Labor Conciliation  and Arbitration  Act."    Mine OAA'uers, as  Avell as mine  Avorkers,  should be compelled to obsei"Are its proA'isions in settling  their disputes.    The business interests of  Kootenay should see to it that the laAA'  is enforced, for  its  enforcement  means  the protection.of their property interests.  The laAA' should not remain' a dead letter.  scarcely started to groAV, and Avhile the  losses AA'ere comparatiA'cly light during  the AA'inter, the cattle are in very poor  condition and good becA'es are scarce aud  prices are high.

The members of the decoration committee AA'ere busily engaged last night hi  decorating the opera house AA'ith flags,  bunting, evergreens, etc., for the library  ball to be held tonight, and the dancing  hall Avill .'present a A'ery attnictiA'e appearance. The gallery has been "reserved;  for spectators AV ho do not indulge iii  dancing.

"1     ^   ni.**, ._,,."���. .^���^._^(.|),-:  The poAA'der  magazine question is becoming a  trifle  tiresome.    Iu  the early  days the  people of Nelson Avere afraid  that the poAvder stored Avithin the limits  of the toAvn might be exploded accidentally aud bloAv them  to  the place Avhere  the best of them expect to go AA'hen they  die, so  they  prayed  that a  reserA'e be  made across the outlet on Avhieh all powder should be stored.    Their prayer aa-iis  granted aud the reserA'e set apart.    The  Avholesale dealers   in   poAA'der then built  magazines ou the reserve.    After a Avhile  the land   set  apart   for   the  reserve was  AA'anted by someone for�� other purposes,  and immediately an agitation AA'as commenced for the  remoA'al of  the poAA'der  magazines to some 'other site.    The oavii-  ers of the magazines AA'ere Avilling to vacate  the  reserve,   provided   the  money  they had expended on the magazines AA'as  repaid them.    No one was Avilling to pay  them a cent, and the magazines remain  on the reserve.    The  question has been  before grand  juries,  and  the late chief  justice  DaA'ie even   Avent  so  far  as  to  increase a grand jury panel in order that  a presentment should  be  made  against  the OAA'iiers of the  magazines.    But  the  grand jury stood "pat," and declined to  do the bidding of the judge.    Since then  the  grand juries haA'e  let thequestion  alone.     Noaa' another attempt  is  being  made to secure the remoA'al of the magazines.     The  magazines  will   be   moved  AA'hen their OAvners are reimbursed  tlieir  cost.    If   the   land  on  AA'hich   they are  built is still a reserA'e, it should  be sold  at public auction, the proceeds to be used  in   paying for the improvements, and if  any should  remain  it could be coA'ered  into the  general  revenue  to be used-in  fitting'iip a room in the public school at  Nelson.   * .

A warehouse is adjacent, which is  sufficiently   large to store any supplies  that the city may be required to carry.  Then why should $10,000 be borrowed at  this time to be used in the erection  of a  building that would require the demolition of buildings that are in every AA'ay  good enough  for  the carrying on of Che  city's business?  There is trouble  amongst, the  franchise-mongers.   They seen! to be a cheap  "_6_b-lo_ of  schemers.    They  want: something that they can soil for a good round  sum Avithout cost to themselves.

CUKUENT RATE OF INTEREST PAID  BANK   OF   MONTBEAL   STATEMENT.  The annual statement.of tlie Bank of  Montreal shows, like other financial barometers,-a highly prosperous condition of  the country. The net earnings in ,the  year ending April 80, ISO!), were $350,582,  an increase of $85,282 over last year  The hank earned about 1.1.25 per cent on  its capital of $12,000,000, against 111-2  per cent for tiie financial year ending  April 30, 189S. - Deducting the usual half  yearly dividends ,of five per ceut a .total  of $1,200,-00, there is left $150,582 to be  carried to profit.and .loss, niakhig.ithe  balance of profit aud loss amount to date,  $1,102,792, as compared with $952,219.07  on April 30th, 189S.  The principal assets of jyhe bank consist  of $4,975,192 in gold and silver coin and  government demand notes, against $5,-  388,033 last year; $5,8S4,255 in 1897, and  $0,259,343 in .1890; Gurrent- loans and:  discounts have increased*from.i$3ft,_18*507.!.  last year, $36,725,725 iu 1897 aud $34,709,-  087 in 1896,;to $42,836,211 showing, a progressively .increased demand for funds  for business purposes, and out of which  the bank .'has; been,enabled to earii-in-.  creased profits.

Perhaps it is this part of this work that  is considered most important by liis employers, for it is the oncthat leads most  directly to increased profits.  Old Country Humor.  The .judge: So you were getting  money by calling yourself a survivor of  H.M.S. Victoria, eh? The culprit: .Well,  ain't .1? I've been livin' ever since it sank.

I have on'  several  occasions urged  the coavs to be  more  careful,  but  they insist  that,   as  they are  strict teetotallers, it is impossible  for them  to dispense  entirely with  Nature's beverage.  Ah Irishman got out of a carriage at a  raihA'ay station for refreshments,, but unfortunately the bell rang, aud the train  left before he had finished his repast.

Alcoholism is Pr#ttc.e?_ ^rfeSttest Danger.  ==r^r=Bpuion^aii=M  er,; 7decl_ ires; that; the.. gijeatest National  peril hjangiiig over France Just, ijow is  alcoiioiism, alid more than all, alcoholism  among women. Singularly enough, his  researches have dgiUonstrated -��that the  wohlen of picturesque Normandy are  more completely ill the grai?p of the  drink.fiend than the women of any other  province of Fi'aiice'. Drink is sold by the  grocer, the coal dealer-^even by the  greengroeei'; and what is still more fatal,  nearly every.shopkeeper dispenses "Wee  drops" to eustoinei's worth cultivating-^  just to steady the tonjiectiou. The question assumes a dark aspect in its relation  to tile terrible infant mortality peculiar  to Normandy, which Dr. Brunon attributes to the almost universal prevalence  of chronie alcoholism among women of  tlie peasant and artisan classes.  The Ideal;Manager.  The ideal manager is the one who does  nothing when things are going along  smoothly and does everything when  things are going ,wrong. It not, .infrequently happens, t,hat he is paid chiefly  for what he knows enough not to do. In  the modern business offipe wSben,a Jiian is  permitted to attend to his business from,  one end of the year to the other without  comment he. knows, that liis work is satisfactory, . and. he does not expect, to be  praised. It is well known that praise increases a subordinate's opinion of his own  importance,- and may. cause him ��� to ask  for;an increase, of J salary, .which is very  undesirable from, the-, point of. view of a  capable manager, even though it is considered sound business policy to pay salaries,and wages that are sufficiently high  to keep all employees satisfied. But, ber  sides being able , to act as referee on all  questions that may arise in the ordinary  course of affairs and decide them, quickly,  NELSON, B. ,C., J4ay,Bth, 1891).  : As the announcement has been made tliat;the g;pver.n-  meiit of British Columbia purpose enforcihgr.tho amendment to the Metalliferous Mines Inspection Act, making  eight hours a working, day for those employed underground in metalliferous mines; See.
