 POWDER  COMPANIES  PROMISE  To Move the Magazine.  S. S. Taylor, Q.C, appeared before the  city council last evening for tlie purpose  of securing a settlement of tho iJiesent  litigation between the city and the  Hamilton and Giant Powder companies.  JIe said that the members of the council  would doubtless be pleased to learn that  the removal of the magazines from  Maga/.itie Point hail been decided upon by  the powder companies and that at the  present time the companies had in hand  the construction of a temporary maga-  i ziue.    I le then snid that Ik; appeared be-  ! fore the council for a three-fold  purpose.  I In the first place,he   was   instructed   to  ' assure the members of   the  council  that  arrangements were now  being  perfected  by the companies for the removal of the  excess of powder at present stored in the  nifign'/.iiies.      Information,  however, had  been laid against the Giant Powder Company and in   view   of  the  arrangements  \?     being made for the removal <)f this powder he asked that the city withdraw the  prosecution,    ft was   not  a  question   of  securing a, lino that the city desired  but  ��� merely   a  safeguard   for  the   lives  ami  property of the citizens and as  the company had given   an   assurance  that this  would be seen red-as soon   as   possible he  thought that the  city  might  withdraw  the suit without .sacrificing  the welfare  of the citizens.     His second request was  that the city council should memorialize  the provincial authorities with a view of  securing to the Hamilton Powder Company a refund of the fine of $200  which  liad been imposed upon it for a violation  of the provisions of the l-.\-plosives Act.  Ho"explained that the clash between the  company and the city ovei; this magazine  was due  to  the   peculiar  circumstances  which surrounded the  case.    When the  indictment Avas first brought against the  company the city  solicitor represented  the powder  company.     When   the city  commenced action against the company  the officers of the company at 'Victoria  cwere informed by telegraph tliat the city  solicitor could no longer  act.    The  telegram,  however, was ambiguous and  in  consequence the court did not receive the  assurance of the company that the magazine  would  be  removed  at  once.     The  representatives    of    the   company,   not  knowing   that  the  city  solicitor was ho  longer   acting   for   them,  sent  forward  these assurances addressed to W. A. Galliher personally, and lie being out of tlie  city, they remained unopened. The third  report which Mi;./JL>vyIorinade, ���was. tliat.

The request- made by Mi'. TaylOr Were  then referred to the mayor and city  solicitor with power to act.  Chief Thompson brought before tlie  council the offer inade to the city of tlie  Stile of a second liand chemical engine for  $1200 I. o. b. at Portland. This engine  lias a Capacity of 120 gallons, With ^00  feet of cheiiik'iil hose, and 000 feet of 2^  iuc"h ho.se. This engine is guarsinteed to  be as good tis new. Jt would cost laid  down in Nelson between $1700 (Md$1800,  While ti 50 gallon chemical purchased iicav  would Cost the city laid down $2050,  Alderman Beei* expressed himself as in  favor of the purchase. Ho added that  the eity had spent about all it had any  right to spend upon the streets and intimated that the public AVorks committee  should let down its plans for street work.  Alderman Fletcher iu reply said that  the council had received two or tliree reports from the finance committee aud  each time the council Was figured as going into the hole. He had no objection  to the purchase of the chemical, but he  desired some assurance that there would  be money enough to meet all the council's liabilities.  The question of the purchase of the  chemical engine was finally referred to  the finance committee.  fE. A. Crease appeared before the council on behalf of tlie Kootenay Lake General Hospital Society and requested that  a check be issued to the society for $500  in aid of the building fund. He explained that the society had already exceeded  the $2000 limit whieh the council had set  as conditional to securing the $500. The  council then decided to issue a check for  the amount. The council at the same  time decided tb grant the polico magistrate leave of absence  for ono month in  consideration of his past service withnut  holidays.  The account of Mrs. Gilbert against  the city for hospital treatment was referred to a special committee composed  of alderma.ii Thomson and Kirkpali'ick  who will report upon the same.  , .Aldeiniiii Kletcher brought up the  qunsliou of the price which the city vas  paying f ir materials usedin waterworks  service--. lie said that he had heard  from several parties that the city was  paying tiie plumbers of this city Irom  four to live cents more for pipe than the  same pipe was offered to the city byone  of the local hardware houses, lie said  tliat the Lawrences Hardware Conqiaiiy  had offered fco supply the city with pipe  at nine cents for which the city was  paying 14 cents. As tho plumbers bought  the pipe from the Lawrence Hardware  Company they simply charged the city  with a five cent advance upon the price  of pipe. No action was taken by the  council.  There wore tenders opened for the construction of the 4340 feet of sower required by tbe city. Thetend��r of .Josias  Thompson was not opened as it was  received some two hours after the advertised time for receiving the same. Hugh  McDonald tendered to do the work, exclusive of rock excavation, for the lump  sum of $3800, with rock at $0.50 per  cubic yard. Onslow Nowling's tender  was for $0524. This was at the rate of  $1.50 per lineal foot with $0 added for  rock excavation. McBeath & Company's  tender was for 79 cents per lineal foot  for the earth and $0.05 for rock excavation. This figure for 4340 feet of sewer  amounted to$3428.00 for the job exclusive  of rock work. W. C. McLean & Company's tender was for S2 cents -per lineal  foot with rock at $0.1.5.  '  The tender of McBeath & Company  being the lowest, was accepted upon the  motion of alderman Fletcher, seconded  by alderman Beer.  A letter was read from J. Laing Stocks,  of the local tramway company, enclosing  a check for $2000 as the company's guar{  antee for the due performance of its 'con-'  gage such assistance as he considers will  be of any service to him. He is expected  to win the.case without counting the  cost.  Alderman Thomson asked for three  months leave of absence and on motion  of alderman Fletcher lie was granted two  mouths leave.  AN AMICABLE ADJUSTMENT OF  The Wage Question Predicted.  Nmw Di.nvkr, August 1.���The action  of the Miners' Union in calling out their  members because of the unsatisfactory  working of the contract system, has resulted in a complete shut-down of the  Bosun mine, all hands being laid off yesterday. This step is only temporary;, as  the management is hopeful of the��resumption of operations in full swing in a  short time.

Nkw York, August 1,���An  afternoon  paper  published  the  foIloAving under a  Paris date:    Official circles here are  following Avitli close interest the Anicricaii-  Canadian conflict in the diplomatic world.  The  vieAv   is   taken   that although   no  French interests are directly involved in  the dispute, nevertheless one cannot but  be  struck  with   the   resemblance  which  tiie..measures  employed   by  Canada /to.  strengthen her- pretension., to Lynn "canal  bear fco those used in regard to l-Vance. by'  the Newfoundland government.    In each  case a foreign nation is brought face to  face with an independent government  whose wishes England respects, but on  whom it is impossible to force her own.  On this point a prominent diplomat said :  "This colonial government, wliich  dilates on its own interests,cares nothing  for the interests of the empire, assumes a  lofty bearing when it enters upon a diplomatic dispute with another power and  does not hesitate fco threaten to call on the  English army to defend ifcs interests, but  if the cabinet at London demands that  the colony make sacrifices in the interest  of the empire, it bases its refusal on its  own independent position. Such a situation is>abnormal. Foreign poAvers can-,  notacceptsuch contradictions betAveen independent colonies Avithout military forces7  with which toniake themselves respected  and the United Kingdom, Avhieh possesses  the military force, but Avhieh cannot interfere in the decision of the colonies."  This view is very general in the foreign  offices of the country  and   consequently  the United States is winning considerable  sentimental sympathy in the present dispute Avith Canada.      One of  the many  proofs of this fact AA'as  revealed  in the  foIloAving obserA'ations made by a young  writer, an authority on colonial affairs.  One of  the most  important  questions  Avliich imperialism has to consider isthe  speedy linking of San Francisco Avith fche  .Philippines by cable.    Just as the  transpacific cable proposed by Australia- and  Ncav Zealand is destined to promote  the  selfish  interests  of England, to  such  a  line  from San  Francisco  to  Manila  by  Avay of Honolulu and Guam -would serve  the interests ofthe whole Avorld.    It avus  proposed  at Ottawa to  utilize the  Aus-  tralo-CaiIndian cable as a means of communication Avith China and Japan.    This  doubtless Avas premature.    The American  line Avill always  have the advantage  of  being the-shortest  course.    Nevertheless  haste sliould be made for the first on the  ground is sure to reap many advantages.  Already Canada has established a Japan-  China direct  steamship service and  it is  not possible that United States "will alloAV  electrical, like maritime  communication  .x-i.^t-.*.���j.���,i .��-n��,w celeuration^appeared*  /uiito- li'd'ev fOppOspMyMo:" i^xnib^,n ~%-^,-��a  * tl iat ���,asjih0^i"01ii -"st<*an;i' 'did* i*f^4pia^:}iv.  bansl/"^*  4ldic!;'in ^��d?fef^n-i^t|u^|^s".

Dorvai.,   August   1^-With    Aveather  favorable to his boat and  good  seamanship Duggan, the skipper of the Canadian  defender, Glencairn III, won his first race  and the third of the series  for  the Sea-  Avanhaka cup this  afternoon.    From the  very start,  Avhen  the Glencairn crossed  the line nine  seconds  ahead  it  Avas apparent   the   Canadian    boat   compared  better Avifch fche American challenger than  she had yet during the preset it races, and  Avhile on fche first leg, which Avas a beat  to windward, the Constance rounded the  buoy fi'i seconds ahead  of tho Glencairn  the spirits.of the supporters of the Canadian boat rose high,     it Avas either to be  a Glencairn victory or a very close finish,  ft had been thought that the Constance  would have gained more on   this  leg, as  yesterday   she   had  shown   pretty conclusively that she  could   beat  to  wind-  ward very much better  than  the  Canadian boat. After rounding the first buoy,,  the Constance set a spinnaker well for-  Avard,  using it as  a balloon  jib, '.while.."  the     Glencairn     held     on     underp   a  reaching     jib      for     quite     a      time,  Avhen she followed   her riA'ai's  example.  Here something seemed to be the matter  with the Glcncairn's foresail and Duggan  took in his large jib.    Both boats carried  fidl mainsails and the  Glencairn;-appear.-.*���  ed to gain slightly, and  when-the second--','  buoy Avas rounded  by  the  Constance'.at  200.20 it Avas .shown  that  the  Glencairn  AAras uoav 35. seconds behind, having reduced her'.rival's lead by 18 seconds.    On  the first leg  of the  second round  Avhieh  AA'as another beat to AvindAArard the Glencairn held well.on. to the  American boat.  Some times one seemed to be be  gaining  and then the other. . Glencairn AATas  iioav  sailing-much better than before and  she  rounded the six mile buoy just 41 seconds  affcer the  Constance, haying  lost, only 6   ;  seconds on  this leg to  windAvard.    The  Constance noAvfolloAA'ed  neAV tactics  by  trying   fco force the  Glencairn  into  the,  shore  so   us  to  .prevent   the Canadian  boat   from    blanketing    her,   but    the  Glencairn  Aveut right  ahead and finally ,;  did  succeed in blanketing the Constance.2(2  The Glencairn began to pull a little ahead-  and as  she neared  the  S-mile buoy she  slowly  increased  the  distance   between  her and the Constance, rounding the buoy  :  at 2.51-37, just 22 seconds  ahead  of the  Constance, having gained oue minute and: 22  three seconds in this two mile run before: :;  the Avind. ;:'-' '--'; ',;,~'\-l\-.,���--- '���:' 2yyy:y  ..(3���air!i;;g^i'nectjg-;rf.iinutes.p.^  ^^i����ia^_��h^wi^^  V-f'^-v  Total.  .93,810 75  Wanted to Cut the Price.  .During the month of July from twelve  to fifteen union .miners were employed oil  fche lioyal'Canadian, one of the Duncan  Mines, Limited, properties, on contract  work.

There is a level above which ifc is an  economic  impossibility  to force   wages,  and that is the actual  productiveness of  labor.    .Just  what that is in  any specific  case-under  modern industrial eonditions  it' must always  be  impossible to .determine.    Tn the production  of any article  so many factors must be considered, such  .as the cost  of material, the  wear of machinery, the rent of premises, the risk incurred in accidents and disadvantageous  markets, the capital needed and the cost  of maikefcing, that no  one can determine  labor's  contribution  in any  commodity.  In: the last analysis labor is the producer  of all commodities,  but  in any concrete  instance afforded by the industrial avo.Id'  an employer owns certain labor products  as his   capital and machinery,  and buys  other   labor  products  as  raw material.  Tt  is  impossible to determine the part  played by the labor which lie employs in  produciug  the results of the  industrial  process   under   his   control.    Whatever  that part' i.s, it is a-margin above which  wages cannot rise.    No man will reward  labor so highly  that on  an average the  net result  will be less  than the .value of  the raAv material, capital, rent and other  items of outlay.    There is also a leyel.be-  low Avhieh wages cannot fall, and that is  the mainteuaiice of the -"workers.    Wages  teaY^��^  ^ ^ei:i$h"ftii^^  Woi-__i&_a_..mv cjttssw::��Ir>;;a&mahpriietxee"  IM.

The failure has led  to an attack on freedom of contract by  Karl Marx, the Moses of tlie Socialists,  aiirj a counter attack on the existing system by tlie individualists, who claim that  it lacks the esseiitittl of freedom of contract. The itemedy or palliative of the  nK)i*e pi'ticfcical^iiiijded lias been tlie Or-  gaiimitioii of labor fbr defeusivc pur-  po.sesi 111 the best times and under the  most favora-ble condi-ions thei'e esist- in  fully-duveloped society an unemployed  element. It grows larger dfiriiig periods  of depression, but never entirely disappears. Tliis surplus labor Avould exert  under ordinary competition a greater influence on wages than a proportionate  surplus product Avould exert ou prices  The AVorker cannot hold back his labor  aild sell it the next day; neither is he in  a position to employ himself. Hc must  sell to someone laossessiug the implements  for buying it. Without the sentiment  that opposes the oppression of tlie Avork-  inan in his hire, and Avithout the resisting force of unionism, a single idle man  Avould be sufficient to bring down the  Avages of a hundred Avorkers to the economic minimum. Each man could be confronted in turn Avith dismissal or a Avttge  reduction, and anyone refusing Avould become himself the idle man, ready to take  the place of the next recalcitrant.  Against that influence, Avhieh ahvays  exists but is perhaps never exerted Avith  so much mathematical exactness, trades  unions offer a barrier. Their influence is  generally Avider than their membership,  for they tend to' create a sentiment that  makes a certain amount of contempt, attach to aiiy man taking the place of a-  striker.    Men belonging to the distinctly  "working"' class will not do so except as a  d-spei-ntc resort.    As yet the pressure of  l.he unemployed seems stronger than the  ivsi.-'ling   power of  unionism,  and  there  art!   fewO.-ciipations   in which   it  i.s   not  possible   l.o fill   the  places  of dissatisfied  worlci-is in   a,   comparative -.short   time.  Vet the unions do offer n, certain a.mount,  of resistance, and as such their establishment i.s often opposed.    A large proportion of strikes  are on account of the refusal of employers   to recognize the officers of unions as the business representatives   of their men,  and many  lock-outs  are intended to punish-or break up  organizations surreptitiously formed.  Such  conflicts  are  preliminary   to  the   later  struggles over wages and hours ot labor;  aud although  employers   are   generally  able to delay for a time the organization  of. Avorkmon,  it is  often  questionable if  the loss   of the   needless conflict   is not  greater than   the gain   on the wage bill.  In   all     manufacturing   industries    low  wages are a pecuniary benefit to an establishment only so far as it pays lower  wages than its competitors.    Universally  low    wages... result    in   proportionately  lower prices, leaving the margin of profit  no Avider.    In  natural  monopolies, such  as steam  and electric  railways,  both iu  construction  and operation,  Ioav  Avages,  so far  as they mean  cheap  labor,  are a  net gain, and  it is  AA'ith these  that the  most determined industrial conflicts take  place. It is not unnatural that au employing corporation should look with disfavor  on an embryo union, for it is when such  organizations are raAv and inexperienced  that the greatest blunders are made and  the most  AA'astefulcou diets precipitated.  The  new union  has an  exaggerated notion of its strength and has not learned  its weaknesses.    If it escapes the formative period Avithout a strike it is indeed  fortunate.    But every union -must pass  through a  AvayAA'ard and inexperienced  youth, and Avhen it has gained Avisdom as  SHOULD  ,'SERVE:,;_llxM  ��,, �� y .���"sfi;yy;. ��� - *  2(0Amkm,Q;'  ".-: ���>.'" \2. ."C.5PP ?fi?nt,,a^���./... yyy ���"-,"*��� iff  s �� It niay.be" i*-mWi.ii1?erM.8tIiat^  ,sp " hgO   cer���t:iia�� "p'ersCJiiSj ���j'epi?es��riti.ng}  transpoVtatiOiJ coin|jaiiie.s0 dpilig; bii����iiiess ;  .'at" _Sdl.iab;utp'ii.���riA?Mted the ���puin2eijn^i����b-svn��  Of Pn&rio and" |lddrB.ssdd"i?OapircVs" pf trails  rt*ind��ptilSi- iiiiportiin'fc bodies Ayitli 'a' yjipi\j" ���  ', .pi :bpp;iiiii,ig- tlie ISdin^utoii" route" tp* tile2  ' "l��lpndiic&" ;Aifc?" that_tn��e -ii ���selenied'-'to.'  _Itui-il** (0hilatlialiS'tp fc&a^^lPl^'^ty%?.  :;i'epi^eai���^i'ter'55diribti|h^^ n^1 ��u|3e'if-'  "��dibr to.����flie-*"ffceivti' "ifo:ti.e".

The plea  that these bodies acted in ignorance is  not a good pica. If they were ignorant  of the character of the Edmonton route,  they had no business to endorse it.  Their fault Avas that they Avere too easily  imposed on by the interested tenters  from Edmonton, and too ready to play  their game. There can be little doubt  that some of the poor fellows Avhose  bones are now whitening along the overland trail were influenced by the resolutions of public bodies in Ontario to take  that route to the Klondike.  It is to be hoped that the memory of  this melancholy mistake will stand as a  perpetual warning to boards of trade and  similar public bodies not to pay too much  heed to interested individuals from a distance who come to seek endorsation of  their mercenary schemes. Not until a  project has been thoroughly sifted and  proved beyond doubt to be of public advantage, should it be endorsed by any  responsible and representative body of  men.  Mining Operations at Moyie.  . Moyie Leader.  A. P. Lemieux arrived here from Nelson this Aveek to take charge of putting  in the trannvay for the St. Eugene between the mine and the concentrator on  the shore of the lake near the railway  track. The tram Avill be about 3100 feet  in length and Avill be of the double rope  pattern, the latest now in use. The tram  Avill be fitted Avith - twenty buckets for  the present and it Avill have, a capacity of  fifteen tons per hour. Nine derricks Avill  be required to hold up these cables.  Most ofthe foundations for the derricks  are built, and carpenters are uoav Avorking on the terminal near theore bin at  the mine. As soon as the ore bins and  terminal at the mill are completed the  cable Avill be strung and the tramway  Avill be ready for operation. At the concentrator the Avork of boarding in and  shingling the main building is  rapidly  FULL INE0F  progressing, and the two ore bins are being framed. After the ore bins are completed, and the terminal for the tramway built, the work of installing the Pel-  ton Avaterwheel and other machinery  will be proceeded with. Excavating for  the compressor plant building will begin  in earnest next week. This building will  likely be about 30 by 50 feet in size and  will be built immediately to the  south of the concentrator.  At the Lake Shore work is being systematically pushed. The boiler for the  compressor plant litis been put in place  and the bricklayers are now building the  furnace. The three shifts working in  the new tunnel are -making good progress. A two-story oflicc is about completed and received its last coat of paint  this week. This building is one of the  handsomest in Moyie. It is built on a  knoll overlooking the town and the lake.  Mr. Drewry's office and living apartments are in this building.  HOTEL   AREIVALS.  MADDEN.  Horrigan, Spokane I J. W. AA'ilson, Calais  P. Burns c�� Co.
