Th� bill will not be^ reported. One of ('he most important bills for sect'ions of thi.s country, and a Inrge number of citizens, is that which ha? just hobn .introduced wliich is known as "ah act. -to make regulations with respect to coal min* OS," intro'uced by Hon HV. H. Gushing. The 'bill in addition to incorporating in 'the present act, the better features of the old act, incor|>orat�a a number of very important. amctKl-roents. The bill is a very long one, thirty pages; .in fact, deaHng witii, the en-fire qi>estion. In point of order the first' question taken up is regarding to ^ucation and limi'tation of miners. It is provided that no boy between the affes Li twelve and sixt'een who is unaible to r^ad and write, shall be employed in a mine. This is a new clause and coupled with it is the old clause, prohibiting any child uwler the age of twelve and any female from working in a mi'iK. The regulations regarding shafts are renovated and elaborated. In e-.'ery seam: there must be two shafts with apparattis for raising and lowering persons at each shaft. Tho section regarding the competency of managers, pit 'bosses and Arc bosses, the ili>tails in the new act are more e.VpUeit than in the old act. An entire section, all new, is de*-voted to the paymeiit oii wages to miners. 'J^hoy are not to be pa�d in .'a public hoiise. When. ;th�j ompunt ;bcn appointed for the jirst-namod district, and will reside at IjOthbridgv). At present, the Superintendent, F. n. Smiith, wilt take charge of the other two. In the general rules, additions are made, one of which reads as (oUowsi; "Rule 7. In 'every working approaching every place where there is likely t^ 1k> an accumulation df exr pto.sive gas, no lamp or Ught ottter than a locked safety lamp shall be allowed or used, and whenever safety lamps ore re(|Uired by this act or by any .special rules made in pursuance of this act to, be usmI, a competent iversott who shall be appointed for that purpose, fshall examine every ,safot.v lamp imtnedintely liefore it is taken into the �vorkings for use, and nHcDrtArn if it is secure and securely locked, ond in any piirt which safely lamps ore so required to Ijo used; they shall not bo used until they h'ovo Jjeen 'oxamrnwl and found secure ami securely locked, and shall noit., without due authority, bo unlocked in the said part of a mine. -�V person sliall not, unless ho is appointed for the purpose, have in his possession ony key or contrivance lor opening the lock of such safety lamp, or avy lucifer maitch or ap- may portion of land in time so that lie; last out a week, and then unless it University could be started at an ; is roceivcil in large quantities, the early date.

C. Simmons, the Liberal candidate in Ijetlibridge, won out after a hard three-cornered ftght. Tlie Conservative nominee was hopelessly beaten, but the I,abor representative, Mr. .Sherman, polled a large vote. In the parts of the riding oc-ciipiiM by the striking miners, 'his majorities were large. Such a contest shows how rapidl.v modern industrial condrtions are developing in the we�5t. Mr. Sherman's success will doubtless lead to Labor nominations at other elections, a resuU greatly to lie regretted. A ntatc, i.he population of which is divided for political purposes into employers and oin-plo.vcd, is in an unfortunate pri�dica-ment.' Such antagonism of classes can only work harm. The striko at Lcthhrldge had nothing to do with proviticial politics, and t'he introduction into an election of considerations which have nothing to do with the duties which the representative to be elected will have to perform, must always be demoralizing. -Edmonton Saturday News. --~-~t)---� LllNDnBECKjMINE IN OPfeKATION.
