 BETTER KISS AND MAKE UP"  And Get Down to Business.  Tho mine managers  and   mine owners  ���who   have   been   standing   out  for  the  three-dollar wage 1'or the eight-hour day  had better acknowledge  defeat  and call  the lockout oil' and put the boys at work.  The agent they sent I'.nst to hire men has  returned, and while he is not likely to report to Tub: Tiiiiwne before Ire reports to  his principals, it is well known   that his  mission was a failure.    The   men   in the  Hast Avere posted  on the  situation here,  and they could not be  induced   to come  lure as long as the men her said "Stay! "  And   it   is   the  same everywhere.    IS von  \\ here the men   arc   not  organized   they  "will not accept less than the wages asked  l.y  the   men   who are   members  of   the  union.    This   is  as  it should be.    Tliere  should bo no   feeling  of antagonism   between organized   and   unorganized mine  workers in a country situated  as British  .Columbia   is.    Many  of  the   mines  and  camps are isolated, and it is a well-known  '..'���fcxporience that unions cannot be successfully    maintained    in    communities    of  small population.    There are no unions iu  Northern   Kootenay,   and   efforts   have  b on   made  to  induce   miners   to  leave  ���, there  for   points  in the  Slocan, but the  1 .'efforts have failed, as the following from  the Rovelstoke Mail of Saturday  shows:  The Sloe-air mine  owners  must  be  in  desperate  straits  ito  open   their    mines  without   recognizing   tlie  miners'  union  ���and all the union stands  for  when   they  have to adopt such despicable methods to  secure men as w.-is attempted   in   Revel-  stoke this Aveek by Joseph Hrrington, who  claimed   to   bo   a representative  of the  Wakefield mine, Silverton, which  is represented in the Mine Owners'Protective  Association.    To the credit of the miners  of Revelstoko district, bo it said, that not  one  of. them   would   take  advantage of  their fellow workers' victory in the south  country, and to a man   refused   to  scab.  They recognized that the  mine  owners,  now   practically   beaten, were   trying to  rise  them to "break"   the minors' union  and would have none of it.  The mines iu the Slocan must be  opened before October or the snow will  prevent them from being worked until  next May, and this explains their anxiety  to secure men, so as to prepare for tiro  winter's work. So far they have been  unsuccessful in securing sufficient scab  ���labor, and at present it looks as if the  owners'would, have to acknowledge themselves le.iten or keep the mines closed  this winter. -  '|?jy^'ij^M&u^  ^^M^^^^^fim^MP^'^  ii^yfot* ^ Ml^a^el io!:fe'jHoy ,.aIso' ,*  PUBLISH^ ���TffQfc-ZX'i  TUESDAY MORNING, SEPTEMBER 19,  18��9.

London, September 18.���Tho second  edition of the Times contains a dispatch  from Johannesburg which .says: "There  is, 1 am informed, some early coup in.contemplation. Quantities ��� of impressed  forces, forwarded in the direction of the  Natal border, indicate some move on the  part the troops in that quarter. The  government is buying horses freely  today."  PitETOitiA, September   IS.���The  reply  of the government of the South African  republic to the latest dispatch dated September ,12th, ofthe British  secretary of  state for tho colonics, Mr. Joseph   Chamberlain, after acknowledging the   receipt  of the British  note, proceeds  in   part as  follows:    The government deeply regrets  the withdrawal, as the  government  understands it, of the invitation contained  in    the    British    dispatch     of    August  23rd,       and       the        substitution       in  place    thereof    of     an     entirely     new  proposal.      The    proposals    now   fallen  through, contained in the Transvaal dispatches of August  19tlr  and  21st  were  dieted from this government by suggestion   made   by   the   British   diplomatic  agent in Pretoria, which this government  acted upon   in   good, faith,   and   after  specially    ascertaining     whether    they  would be likely to prove acceptable to the  British  government.

Meanwhile a wire had;  been sent to J. D. Knowies, secretary of  ^tlr^SilveTWr"MihTlrs'=tTO  about the Wakefield, and stating that  Has   a Bonanza.  Nisw" Dknveh, September  IS.���W. IT.  Sandiford,   manager  of  the   Northwest  Mining   Syndicate,   has   returned   from  .Spokane well satisfied with tho result of  his trip.    It was undertaken   to arrange  the final  details   with Scott   McDonald  and his associates of the  amalgamation  of the fidelity mine with the Bosun, adjoining   this   town.     This  arrangement  has  already  been   detailed at length in  Tun Tiuisune, but the true secret of the  affair has  but  now  been  made  public,  though  known  to a  few for some time.  It is nothing less than the discovery upon  the Fidelity ground of one of the largest  bodies of clean galena yet found  in  this  famous  camp.      Some   months ;rgo Mr.  Sandiford had  empioyed iu  tracing the  vein on the Fidelity two trusted miners,  and these were engaged three  weeks  at  their task.    They ran a number of cuts,  and in one of these encountered  an  immense body of float, which  upon being  traced rrp was soon located in the lead in  place.    One of these men affirms that the  lead shows a solid front of  four  feet  of  clean galena, and it has been  opened up  for   upwards of  100   feet.    The  former  owners  of the Fidelity played  iu hard  luck,     otherwise     they     would     have  uncovered     the     chute,   as     but     six  inches    of    earth     remained    over     it  from  one  of their  workings.     In  fact,  .when the wash fell  away,  the mark "of  tlieir picks Avas discernible upon the ore.  W. Drewry, P. L. S., subsequently ran a  line over the now find, showing it to hold  a course through  the  Fidelity and just  below the present workings on the Frisco,  theuce heading towards Silver mountain.  The effect of this find upon New Denver  in the future is at once apparent, and it  is the intention of Mr. .Saudiford to work  the combined properties on a big scale as  soorr as the  labor  question  is  adjusted.

On Friday last tho minister of finance  spent a fully  occupied   day   at   Kaslo.  From about ten o'clock in   the  morning  until nearly midnight lie was interviewed  with  reference  to  the   eight-hour  law.  There  was  no   formal    delegation,   but  singly aud in pairs the mine owners, mine  managers,     their    representatives   and  sympathizers came to Mr. Cotton   to  express their views upon  the so-called   in-  quitons measure.   The occasion  was not  of sufficient  importance  to  call   George  Alexander  from   his   studied  seclusion,  but lie was represented by his chief clerk,  who     is      also      his      talkative       representative    upon    the   Kaslo     board  of   trade.    One    prominent    gentleman,  Avhose /.eal Avas in advance  of his intelligent study,upbraided the minister upon  the injustice   of   a  law  Avhich  euacted  $"J.:jO  pay for   tin  eight-hour day.    He  Avas more astonished than abashed when  informed that the  law  enacted  nothing  of the kind.    Another, Avhen  told that  ' the present government would  not take  any steps to  repeal the law, announced  that he Avould leave the town iu a month.  Ho  AA^as  told  that  Avhile his  departure  would be \'ery deeply regretted, and the  loss to the erty Avell nigh  irreparable, it  Avould scarcely serve to change tlio policy  of the administration.   Another-representative  of the  mrue managers,  more  zealous   than   judicious,   informed    Mr.  Cotton   that   the   eight-hour   law   Avas  passed at the behest of a body of miners,  not more  than three per cent of whom  were British subjects, another placed the  percentage at. ten, while a third said that  possibly there might  be tAventy-live ]rer  cent   of   British   subjects  amongst the  operative miners.    All, however, sneered  at lir.F.  Green's  estimate of fifty  percent.    Yet Mr.  Green  was Avell  within  the truth, for of the 500 members of the  Sandon Miners' Union, upwards of seArenty  per cent are British  born  aud  have remained British subjects.  .

This was handed  to the miners, and they at onee decidetl  to stay at home, Pickets were at the  station this rnornrug to stop those who  could not be notified last night.  ILiast evening at the Central Mr. Brrrng-  tdn was looking very dejected, evidently  i eeogiuisiug the .'fact that the jig was iti).:  A IVtail man struck hint for a job, was  immediately engaged, and is expected to  leave for Silverton Monday. Ho then  liad another story to tell, Avhich in some  particulars differs from the facts. He  said there were only a few men in tlie  lower eouutry���agrtatorSj etc.'���but tliey  -would not accept Avork at any price. It  did not make any difference to him  whether- ineiMvere union or not. Had a  gang of forty men engaged, but his Avork  had been spoiled by agents of tire union  posting men. Had sent one of the miners  down���paid his fare, in fact-���to report  to the men here. This man had wired  the others that he Avas coming back, so  he supposed that he could not get any  men to go down. No irse to try to get  men here; Avas going home disgusted.  A few carpenters Avere going down, Monday, he said, and tlie reporter was assured  plenty of work if he would come.  Mr. Brriiigtoh went south this morning, though he Avas supposed to go down  with tlie carpenters, four in number, on  Monday.   Lost Their Litres at the Big Tunnel.  Ciisnuilo Record.

It  was on the 10th September, and there  Avere several distinct shocks. The dis-  tur-bniuce Avas felt as far inland, as the  Atlin district.  f, J.

It is announced in the Atlin Ciaiin  that gold commissioner Graham orders  tliat the close season, in which placer  claims jioed not be represented, shall  commence on September IStlr and continue until July 1st, 1000, Speaking of  his reasons for setting these dates, Mr.  -'Grahani' said he already had complaints  of ice in the sluice box, and therefore  thought September 15th the proper date.  The opening of the season on July 1st,  1000, Avould give eA'erybody plenty of  time to get in and not liave to make the  trip over the ice.  Insurgents Gain Ground in Venezuela.  Washington, September 18.���United  States minister' Looruis is hurrying his  departure from Washington because of  the gravity of the situation in. Venezuela.  He left today for New York aud Avill  take tho first steamer from that city for  Venezuela, which ���will be not later than  Saturday next. The minister regards  the situation as critical if the newspaper  reports of the insurgent successes are  accurate.

The  readopted article comes into force immediately.  Big Building Collapsed.  MoNTitiSAr.,  September   IS.���At   eight  o'clock this evening the southeast corner  of the Queen Hall building, in Avhich was  located W. H. Scroggie's retail drygoods  store, fell  in.    The  building fell   gradually and Avarning Avas giA'en the few people on the street at tho time, so that no  one was  injured.

On an ripper floor  adjoining    the   Scroggie    establishment  was situated the  Queen's theatre.

On Friday and Saturday the  local  agents, taking advantage of the presence  in the city of so many general   agents of  the companies carrying risks  in   Nelson,  wired   the  secretary  of  the  Vancouver  board asking that it instruct sonic of the  general  agents  to    readjust   the   rates.  There wore in Nelson at the time Robert  S.Day of Victoria, representing tho'Imperial, A. A. Bonk of   Vancouver,   representing the Caledonian, James S.

Dickenson  of Victoria, representing the Atlas, Queen and   Lancashire,  companies.    In   response to the request  of the local agents, the Vancouver board  held a meeting yesterday and decided to  authorize  Mr. Tiedman   of  the  Scottish  Union and Mr. Reed of otho  Connecticut  companies  to   make  the   desired  readjustment.    The   former   is   now  in  the  Slocan and the  latter  in  Boundary, but  steps Avi 11   be taken  to secure   their   return to  this  city Avithin  the  next few  days.    By the readjustment a considerable reduction will be made on the buildings in the old  frame  ranges  on  Baker  street^ Avhich have recently been  broken  up by the erection of brick  blocks.   This  deduction will apply to the old buildings  in most of the blocks, as the  splitting of  the frame ranges by bricks will  tend  to  reduce the .rates upon all the buildings in  the blocks.    The  readjustment  will  not'  result in any general lowering of the iir  surance rates, as Nelson is now using the  same rate'as--Victoria;'aiid 'it.-is', more  than likely an increase will  be  made on  some of the  risks, particularly  in   block  No. 1, Avhere the risk  Avas  increased  by  the moving of the  old  Merchants'hotel  building from block 5 to block 1. ��.:  Plans of Mackenzie & Mann.

".I  Advjchs from the Slocan are that some  of the mine managers are Avilling to  resume Avork and pay $3.50 a clay, but  they are unwilling to employ members of  tho local unions. , If the mine managers  insist on keeping up their organization,  they surely should' concede a like .privilege to the*-mine workers. The mine  managers in this fight have acted more  like'babies thaii full-grown men.  Rksuaii'Tion of Avork in the Slocan  means that the output of the mines of  West Kootenay will amount to .a million  dollars a month, one-fourth of Avhich Avill  be disbursed in Avages to miners and mine  laborers. No other section of the Pacific  Coast Avill Ijo more prosperous. The investor will bo receiving fair dividends'  and the Avago-earnorfair wages.

Development on it also disclosed  a big ore body in the lower tunnel, and  the fact that there Avas no cessation of  Avork permitted the shareholders to get  the advantage of the improved appear-*  anco of tlie property.

The.state owned railways of Aiif*i,r;ilia  are often referred to as indiwiting tlie advantage of government ownership, but in  trutli tlie cost of carriage is much higher  ou the roads -than on Canadian roads,  and must be, because the railways of  Australia aro corruptly conducted as  political.machines. -By'way of confirmation,, wo give below tire evidence of one  of the best known men living, and one of  the shrewdest observers, S. L. Clemens,  bettor known as Mark Twain. This  famous writer had occasion a couple of  years ago to go upon a lecturing tour  that included the principal points in Aus-  ; tralia, and the weakness of the railway  system did not escape him. Ho lias an  Australian gentleman traveling with him  to a little town called Maryborough tell  the story, wliich is Jn part as follows:  "Tlie government chooses to do its- niil-  way  business   iu^ its  own  Avay,   and-it  doesn't  know as  much about it as the  French.    In    the  beginning   they   tried  -������idiots; then tliey imported the Frenclr--  which   was  going  backwards,  you  -see;  now it runs the roariMtsclf���which is going backwards again, you see.    Why, do  you know, in order to curry favor with  the voters, the government puts down a  road  wherever anybody  wants it���anybody that owns two sheep nnd a dog; and  " by consequence we've got, in the colony  of Victoria, S00 railway stations, and the  business done at eighty of thorn doesii.'t  foot ii p.twenty shillings a week."    -  -i'Fivo dollars? " Oh, come!"  'it's true,    it's the absolute truth."  "Why, there are three or four men on  wages at every station."  "I know  it.    And the station business  doesn't pay for the sheep-dip to sanctify  their coffee   with.    It's   just   as   I say.  And    accommodating?       Why,   if   you  shake  a rag  the brain   will stop in   the  nlidst of the  wilderness  to pick  yon up.  All  that kind of politics costs, you see.  And then, besides, any town  that has a  good   many   votes    and   wants   a    fine  station, gets it.    Don't you overlook that  Maryborough station, if you lake an interest in governmental curiosities.    Why.  you  can  put  the   whole   population ol  Maryborough  into it, and give  them a  sofa  apiece,   and   havo  room  for   more.  You  havoif b fifteen stations in America  that are as big, antl you probably haven't  five that are half as fine.    Why, it's perfectly elegant.    And tho clock!    Everybody will tell you about the clock.   There  isn't a station in Europe that's gob such  "a-clock:    It-doesn't   slriko^uul-tJiat's  one mercy.    Well, of course,  when they  build and' rail 720 stations, at a loss, and  a, lot of palace-Stations aiid  clocks like  .MiiryborOugh's at another loss, the government has gob to economise somewhere,  hasn't it?   Very Weil���lookat the rolling  -stock! That's where they'siwe the money.  Why, that train from Maryborough will  consist of eighteen freight cars and two  passenger keimels; cheap, .poor, shabby,  t-lovonly: 110 drinking water,.no sanitary  ���aiTftngen.eiit*'; every imaginable  ihcou-  venr^iiee; and slow?-���oh, the gnii, of cold  .molasses;  no 'aH'brake, no   springs, and  they'll jolt your head off every time they  start or stop.   That's where they make  their  little  economies,  you   see.     They  spend   tons   of   money   to   house   yon  palatiaHy while yoii wait fifteen minutes  for a train,  then degrade  you  to  six-  hours' convict transportation to gob the  foolish outlay back."  ���Mew Zealand's steam railroads are  owned and'operated by the government.

The    engine   driver'  blows   two  loud  blasls   of  tho  motive's  whistle    before   starting,   niiieli    like   a  steamer.      A.   large   hand    bell   at   bhe  stations   is   loudly   rung   prior   to   tho  shrieks ol' the loeomotivo's whistle.    Tlie  guard   (condu.'tor)   walks   up  and  down  the platform and says:    "Take your seats  ���everybody take seats," instead of "all  aboard." .after which he blows a. poeket  whistle signal, like  some United .States  trolley   car.  conductors,   and   the   train  starts, but does not go much faster than  a. horse's slow pace, except down grade.  The   train   stops   in  the   bush,  nnd   you  think an axle is broken or something is  wrong probably a "hold-up," which they  call   a' "struck:'up;"  but no,  the stop  is  merely to let the guard apply tho brakes.  Why do they want the brakes .applied  after .stopping?    Well,   you see, there is  ahead of us a slight down grade, not very  much, bub enough to require brakes, and  the solitary guard could not apply  all  the brakes quick enough,   so they wait  ten  minutes for  him to do so.    It is almost like stopping'an ox team in pioneer  days.    Air brakes are unknown, and the  locomotive  has no bell, but must always  Avhistle.  The railway carriages have a plain,  square," flat board seat against the sides,  of the coach lengthwise. Some have a  leather cushion to sit upon. A few late  coaches have six to,eight" narrow reversible seats. A solitary step high up, made  of one piece of board aids the passenger  to enter. The windows are small and  near the roof.    Baggage checking is nn-  Big Scl]oo!|er  Beer or Half=  and=Half....  known. You paste a label on your baggage, they gather it up and take it, but  yo i must see that they pub it oil' ab your  destination, and must claim it in the general scramble before some one helps himself to it. Letters posted in a 'mail car  must pay from four to twelvo cents extra, according to their destination. No  trains run at night or on Sunday. Live  stock cannot travel on Monday or I<Yi-  day. The cars for horses and cattle are  called carts; other freight cars arc termed wagons. They are built like packing  cases, and have no opening except the  missing roof, the door closed tightly.  They are scarcely one-fourth the si/.e of  American cars.  There are no trolley cars in all of New  Zealand, notwithstanding a. population of  00,000 in Auckland aud other towns almost as large.        An Absurd Claim.  Toronto Telegram.

Mr. Lewis, iu presenting  what he declares to be legal claims  against the British Columbia government,  never loses a chance of describing the nn-  neighborly and unfriendly legislation  that evicted American miners of Atlin  Lake. If Mr. Lewis has solid claims, he  will in all probability get justice from  the proper authorities, but there is not a  shadow of reason why he should win  sympathy because of the "unfriendly and  unnoighb. rly" legislation that prevents  his clients carrying away the wealth of  British Columbia'* placer mines. British  Columbia's anti-alien legislation does not  approach the severity of the laws which?  Washington put on her statute books to  exclude Canadians from mining rights.  Now that Canada has the gold and Americans the desire to profit from it. Mr,  Haniilton Lewis had better look to bhe  courts for law aud nob to the public for  sympathy.

Nelson is Generally Healthy.  .Although there are Kever.il capes of  typhoid fever in Nelson the disease cannot  he said Io he epidemic. Dr. L.in.-m, the  health officer for tlie city, computes the  number of cases, including those from  outside points, at twelve. Compared with  the corresponding period of the previous  year he says .that there is not one-tenth  of Ihe number of cases that there were  iu 1.S0S. The improvement he considers  is due to the extension of the witter and  sewerage systems and a.so to the grading  of streets, which in many instances litis  removed or covered up bad ground. ]Je  considers that; there should be quite as  marked an improvement in the health of  t he city next year as theie has been in  the ]>resent over the fornier year. Jn his  opinion the city council should ;is a precautionary measure insist upon all who  have either water oi*, sewerage services  within reach of their premises connecting  with the same. Particularly should this  regulation be enforced in the case of  private hospitals in Avhich patients suffering from contagious diseases are  treated. If this is done Nelson should be  as free from typhoid in the fall as any  city in the province.  Postoffice  BAKKK STREET,  Remember the Narne  Store  NKLSON.  J. A.
