 SHIFTING THE RESPONSIBILITY  FOR   THOSE   SPECIALS.  THK Tkihi'NK publishes below :l letter  from the solieitors of the Ymir Gold  Mines, Limited, containing an alleged  .statement of the facts connected with  the appointment of special constables by  the manager of the Ymir company. The  letter i.s, in brief, as misleading as any  statement conhl be. The first material  statement contained in it misrepresents  the position of the deputy attorney general. When shown the letter by Tiik  Thiiu'NI-: he admitted that he did not like  it. Mis statement of the case is that he  was informed that souk; men who were  willing to continue at work at the Ymir  mine were being intimidated from doing  so, and that the property of the company  was threatened with damage. Me was  also of the- opinion that constable  Forrester, who i.s stationed at  Ymir, was absent from his post  attending the assize court at Nelson,  and that therefore there was no police  oilicer at Ymir. Accepting the story of  the Ymir company that its property was  in jeopardy, that the company's workmen were threatened "with iutimidation,  and being under the misapprehension  that there was no police officer at Ymir,  he consented to allow the company to  swear in six special constables.  The statement, that the government  was in the first instance to pity the wages  of the specials, is misleading. The deputy  attorney-general states that it i.s the duty  of the government to protect property,,  aiid that it is prepared to do so; but that  it is only when the regular police is insufficient to cope Avith disorder that the  governmentappoints specials,and only in  such instances Avould the government pay  for the specials' services.  The statement that in most instances  the specials were selected by peace officers  of tho crown'is also, misleading. The only  color of truth in it is that the men  selected by the Ymir company's manager  were to be subject to rejection by the  resident chief constable at Nelson.  With respect to the sending of the  specials 'without arms, this was astipulation made by the deputy attorney-general, who took the view that the specials  were merely Avatchmeu for the company's  property.  The statement that captain Forrester  was to accompany tlie specials from Nelson is untrue. There is no such man on  the provincial police force. There was a  constable    Forrester,   of   Brooklyn,    in  Oi.  >>]  lsl"A-  SUNDAY MORNING, JUNE +,   I SOO.  PUBLISHED AT NELSON, BRITISH COLUMBIA.  DAILY (BY MAIL) $5 A YEAR;  WEEKLY, $2.  Tlie government lirst were to pay t.lin wages of the  specials, but as the company were anxious lo avoid tho  slightest delay, they undertook not only to fiii-nNIi Hie  pay, but also incurred the furl her cost of eharterintc a  special train lo convoy the men to Ymir, without any  expense to tho country.

The ��� letter of the Ymir Company's solicitor is appended:  NKLSON. June 3rd, l-9il.  To the KditOr of the Nelsou Tribune,  Sir: Having read the recent articles in Tii_.TkIii.unk  and the "Ymir correspondent's hews" anent tho late  action, of the Ymir Gold Mines, Limited, and having received the sanction of the company to make public the  actual fucts in regard thereto, wc now address you :  On the first day of June instant, the general manager  of the company, Mr. Robertson, having received information from the -nine that a number of hands, who  had been prevailed upon to quit work, were wiling to  resume, but had been threatened and intimidated to  such an extent that a promise of protection was insufficient to induce them to continue, they requiring to have  such protection actually given first, consulted us as to  tho matter.  ICiiowing, as we all know, the state of affairs that has  existed for some timo at Wardner, Idaho, the late afl'air  afc the Athabasca mine, the announced policy of the government not only to enforce the law but permit all citizens to follow their business without hindrance or molestation, and afFord _uch protection as might be required,  not to remedy, but to prevent any damage to property or  interference with that personal liberty which is the  birthright of all British.subjects, we took advantage of  the presence of the law officer of the crown, the deputy  attorney-general,- and laid the ease before him, and it  was after full discussion" and careful consideration that  the plan of sending the special constables was adopted,  prevention being considered preferable to cure. ' Wc  have it on the best authority that no repetition of the  Wardner affair will be permitlcd here.  Germany May Oppose It.  Bi-ULi.v, .June 3.���The Hague peace conference     has    largely     occupied    public  attention   this   week.    The   papers have  freely  commented   on   its  doings.     Tlie  news that it had really taken up the subject of international arbitration came as  a great surprise  to  many.    The leading  papers at first refused to believe it.    The  Kreug Zeitung, often the reflector of the  A'iews   of   the  army  and   upper   circles,  acknowledged that sir Julian Pauncefote  had played a clever game on M. De Staal,  and declares that tlie idea of arbitration,  of such   a   sweeping   nature   as   Great  Britain proposed, Avas untenable and out  of   the   question    so    far   as   Germany  was   concerned,  as   it  Avould  open   the  door   to   constant   foreign   interference  in the internal affairs of the nation.   The  paper also doubts the correctness of the  version  making M.  De Staal accept the  British proposal, as it considers it ��� Avoidd  be  going  too  far beyond the czar's  instructions.    It also reminds Russia of he-  Polish and'Finland  proA'inces, and Great  Britain  of her  Irish  question, and  expresses the belief that  neither  power is  willing to accept in principle such courts  as  sir ' Julian. Pauncefote _ lias  outlined,  AA'hich  it  is  claimed   \vould reA'erse the  natural order of things.

Victouia, June 3.���-A violent altercation betAveen ministers Martin and Cotton took place yesterday at a private interview betAveen the members of a Vancouver delegation and the executive respecting Deadinan's Island, and though  the delegation pledged themselves to secrecy as to the proceedings, a story of an  unseemly row has leaked out together  with other information. As one delegate  put it, Martin simply made rag of Cotton,  charging him Avith rank disloyalty to  Vancouver, of which Martin proclaimed  himself the champion. He freely revealed details of the proceeding of recent  cabinet meetings, and, it is said, virtually  gave Cotton the lie. Semlin seemed  greatly distrassed at Martin's violence  and repeatedly begged him to be more  temperate, but the attorney-general took  no notice of the premier's remonstrances.  THE TOWN AND THE DISTRICT  A Fire Destroys a Sawmill.  The mill of the Nelson Sawmill Company, in liquidation, situated two mile,s  up CottoiiAvood creek, Avas destroyed by  fire yesterday together Avith all the nia)-  chinery and fixtures. A fire was started  some distance away by some Chinamen  for the purpose of clearing land aud got  beyond tlieir control. There was a man  in charge of tlie mill, Avho tlid everything  possible to check the fire, but without,  success. .The loss is estimated at $4000',  of which $1000 is covered by insurance iii  the Pacific Coast Fire Insurance Coni.  pany. Hugh II. Cameron, liquidator]'  and W. N. Rolfe tried to get to the mill  yesterday afternoon, but could not get  Avithin three hundred yards of it. tf  NELSON.

Ymiii, .June 3.���Out of the twenty men  left at Y"mir who quitted the   Vmir mine  nearly all have assessment work of their  own to do in   various  parts.    It  is computed   that  the   Ymir  mine would have  hail to pay just under ��1   per  day more  under the $3.;.0 rate to keep the mill anil  mine iu full swing; and the British shareholders would much rather do this than  see the mine shut down and   no development work goingon, for these Britishers  do grasp after dividends, and  the Ymir  could   IniA-e. paid  one  this month   very  easily.       At   present   concentrates   are  being hauled down from the mill at the  rate of eighteen tons  per day, aud the  mill of forty stamps is in   full  operation,  as the mill hands do not come  under the  eight-hour  law.'   In the .'meantime   the  posse of special constables  are having a,  high old picnic and consider it grand fun  drawing  good  pay  from  the company,  first-class fare, anil  haAre nothing to do.  The  special  train  cost   the  Ymir  Gold  Mines, Limited, something in  the  neighborhood of $100.

Anonymous Avriters are usnaiy two-faced, always coAva rdly,and never ���truthful.  SETTLE   THE   DISPUTE,  A lockout and a deadlock! That in  brief is the position of miner and mine  owner. The latter made haste to say  "AVe Avill not." The miners -have said  "We cannot." It is a crisis tliat demands  dispassionate and cool consideration to  avoid results disastrous .to both parties.  "The initio owners have, contended iu  support of their action that they cannot  afford to pay men $3.50 for eight. Injurs  Avork. The miners are a unit, in "saying  that they can do as much Avork in, eight  hours as .they have in ten. As it is the  Avork the miner accomplishes that is* valuable to tho employer and not tho time  'spent in ics performance, the stand taken  by tjhe miner is clearly reasonable. Were  any extra demand inside on the pocket of  the operators, it Avould be then full time  for thorn to remonstrate. But the case is  reversed.* Practically the mine owners  are demanding "the-samo ten hours ���work*  which the ���miners- contend they can  accomplish in eight hours, for fifty cents  less per shift than they secured under the  old regime.  .    That   the   miner's   contention  of  his  ability, to  accomplish, the Avork  of the  THOMSON'S  XVK ARE MOT ADVEltTISING  ���FfSHING TACKLE  This  season, it   is   not  necessary, everybody  knows  that our  Stock is Larger  and Prices Lower  Than Other Dealers.  long hour.shift in the shorter one  is   no  idle   excuse   is   well   understood   by the  more     astute     mine      managers,     and  the fair-minded of them, we believe, Avill  have no objection in conceding the $-.50  for the short shift.    To those  avIio never  hammered steel and did'the other  arduous Avork of the  miner  it may  seem impossible to obtain such results, but a little consideration will show its feasibility.  To successfully cut rock a blow of certain  weight is necessary, according to the tenacity of its grain.    If   the' blow i.s just  tinder the breaking strain of the particles  of rock no   number of blows will accomplish anything.    The miner, therefore, is  obliged to work  at  high  pressure.    It is  on the strength and precision of his blow  that results depend. .   When  his strength  i.s so reserved   .-is   to  extend over a  long  period its expenditure pur minute or hour  is   that much   less  than if concentrated  into a shorter time.   It is a simple mathematical   calculation   whieh   holds   good  with   the  animate  as  A\*ell as the inanimate machine,    .lust now the advisability of cheapening the  price  of  board  is  under discussion.    If   this  i.s  done   the  mine  owners should  see to   it   that the  quality is not impaired.    If men tire well  nourished   they   naturally   must   work.  The  .surplus  energy   within   will   assert  itself,     making    the     performance     of  work   exhilarating  rather  than   a   task.  Heport litis said that .-nniny mine operators believed that  by  coercing the men  they may effect a repeal of this, to them,  so obnoxious  legislation.    Let  no one be  deceived!    The eight-hour  law is here to  stay, and   the   sooner   we   make up our  minds to that  condition   the sooner will  the issues tit  stake   be adjusted.    If the  miners can   perforin   ten   hours' Avork in  eight, the mine owners are doing a great  injustice in seeking to reduce the scale of  wages.    That the  miners can do as they  say  has   been   amply   demonstrated  in  Iiossland, all reports to the contrary notwithstanding.  To avoid any ombittcrment, it is better  thtit both parties interested get together  as soon as possible and thresh out their  differences. .Reprisals arc ahvays undesirable, and it Avould be most deplorable  if such things Avere Avere resorted to.

"Come" said ..mine':  own-familiar friend "and see our public  library."    Noav  a   public   library   in   ti  small   town  always   suggests  to me  (I  don't know  why,)' middle-aged females  and Marie Corelli.    Besides this entrance  to the Nelson "Bodleian" is suspiciously  adjacent to   a    famous   saloon   and as  my    pockets    were    innocent    of   anything'approaching the price of ������refreshments for two," and my friend had already applied to me for an infinitesimal  loan (without success), I had no desire to  give a wrong impi-essiou to the byestaud-  ers as  to my intentions.7 V However, my  7 friend informed me.-:that there were no  middle-aged- females^ in   Nelson���-I   ain  7siu-e,;from close -person.il^observiitibn,vJjieV  3|^r��fitf|_to^^  |��.C!&iJ-H_'._i_$^  Is now prepared to issue Drafts and Letters  of Credit on Skaguay, U.

Would 1 rather  write four than two-column articles were  I paid according to tlie lengths of the  'same, even if 1 had to work twelve instead of ten hours out of the twenty-  four"? (Renteniber 1 have other "fish to  fry" besides improving the minds of the  Tribune's readers!) Not much! And  please forgive my siting.  When we have   but our oavu  charnel  house to fill (with the necessary food and  unnecessary   liquid), to   shelter   and   to  clothe, our own gross intelligence only to  amuse  or distract, Ave  may be contented  Avith  a modest income and a plethora of  holidays.    But  there comes  to many of  us  that   unfortunate   blending between  the. sexes,   known   in   polite  circles   its  marriage,   with    the   inevitable    consequences!    More  mouths   to fill,  measles,  mumps,   medicine bills,   then  the   dark  days  of sickness  or affliction, when the  hand or  the brain is  retarded and there  is   but little   grist coming   to the   mill.  Hoav to reduce the "pack" of debt is now  the question; and the brave man. will be  desirous of adding to the day's Avage by  sacrificing  the hours of rest in. order to  make a'..headway against the black tide.  Is it for the state to step in aud say "So  long shalt thou  Avork and no longer!"    I  'am-fully.'aware that there are arguments,'  equally plausible, on the other side.    But  we live in a   free country n-rid a" mail is  entitled to hold  his OAvn  views,- though  often  it were well for him if he did but  keep tliose said views to himself.    I have  drifted, in spite of my determination, into a soliloquy on this  question  of   the  hour���so far as Kootenay is concerned at  least. AuTOi,Y-AS.  but instead of pursuing that course, led  on by some renegade Canadians, they  adopted the McKinley bill, Avhicli was almost a prohibitive tariff against Canadian products. That was the point from  which Canadians began to groAV strong  and self-reliant, and the fact tliat they  feel themselves stronger today than ever  before is due to the development that  was forced upon-them by the hostile legislation of the United States. By nieeting these unfriendly measures with the  determination to open neAV channels of  trade in a direction where, friendship  could be counted on as a permanent sentiment, Canadians not only strengthened  themselves with themsel\res, but they  gave stronger reasons to the mother  country to value this portion of the empire as it had never been valued, and to  concede to our statesmen a measure of  influencing imperial concerns (so ."far as  they effect Canada) that had not before  been conceded. Canada has reached a  stage now where it ean do Avithout the  trade of the United States. In fact, the  prosperity-of the Dominion hinges almost entirely upon the cessation of trade  between these two countries, as it depends upon the enlargement of iuter-im-  perial commerce. Therefore, the American statesmen who are today deploring  the influence of Canada in the councils of  Britain have nobody to thank but themselves, and if that influence restricts their  effort to attain their ends hi"the Alaskan  boundary matter, they may attribute it  to tliose -who framed prohibitive tariffs.

But  when the purist or perfectionist steps iu  and endeavors to put into practical shape  the product-of the vain dreams of the  modern labor delegate, wheu the state interferes and, treating the laborer or.miu-  er tis a mere mechanical contrivance,  commands that the human machine can  only be run for so many hours a day aud  no more, then approaches dangerously an  infringement on that postulate of every  Anglo-Saxon, "the liberty of the subject."  Possibly I am wrong and near sighted in  my views. I have frequently seen it  Avritten and heard it said that a man is  degraded into a beast of burden if he  works longer than a specified number of  hours���the number .varies according to  country, period, and the anxiety ofthe  particular demogogue' who desires to obtain labor votes.
