Howard, Manager resuiS of tiic !iiidiugs of tue mining i-LMniiiiasiou which appointed at the close of last session. The coni-uvission.. .consisting of .T. T. Stirlin.e, lioud of the rainas department in the province; Secretsry -McNeil, i-epre-sentlng the owners association, anil \V. Powell, representing the men's lederation. has been sitting almost continuously durlarr the past year and their Hndings as eml)odied in the act involves u number of important ani-eudments to the mining law of the proviuee. Previous to tUe introduction of the new act the only law relating to mining was the Coal Mines Act. The uew act applies to all classes of mines' and Avill replace the eoai mines act. -A^ugust 1. 19i:!, is the time fixed for putting into operation ibe provisions of the new mining law. After that it will bo illegal to employ women in or about mines, except in such employment as office work, charrin'l, eTc. No hoy under, the age of 16 'is to be employed under ground and the age at which a boy can be employed ibove the ground about a mine has been raised from 12 to A boy under IG must have' reached a certain educational standard or he cannot be employed at a mine. The eight hour clause is unaltered In the new act. An important uew provision is that two ways of egress must be provided in connection with every part of a mine, in which ten or more persous are employed. This Is a most important provision in case of explosions, where the retreat of the miners Is apt to be cut off by the falling of the roof in the tunnels. In addition to the requirement to report explosions from gas the new act requires that e.'Tplosions from coal dust shall also be reported. Coal dust Uofeo r.ot usually occ;:- in sines until they have reached a certain depth, �when they become drier and ventilation is more 'difficult. The Introduction of electric coal euttiag machinery aJso is a factor in adding to the dust in the mine. It is also required that Che manager of a mine shall visit it in person once in ten days. In aotuaji practice the management of the men and mining operations devolves largely upon the liit boss, or overman as he is styled in the new act. The minister has power to add to the ol-asee? of accident in-a mine that must be reporteti. For instance, the new act makes accidents from electricity and overw.inding matters for report. When an accident has occurred in a mine the place where the accident occurred must be left undisturbed until the inspector of mines for �the district has had the opportunity of seeing it. It the inspector asks that something shall he. remedied and the owner or manager refuses he can have the men withdrawn from the mine until the matter is properly adjusted. Regulations are placed in the act regarding tLie nBft of powd�r and shot firing. It makes it an offence to nre a shot where gas exists in the vicinity. Ambulances must be kept at every mine. Plans must be posted at the mouth of a mine showing the V'ays of egress. The workmen have been agitating for this provision for soine time past. Not only, must plans he kept of the working^ but there must b^ separate plan of each working and all plans must be accurate to within three months of date. � A ventilation record Is enforced in respect to �very mine. Work- the whole province. The age for np-plicdtiou for a manager's or overman's certiiicate has been raised from 2.'? to 25. At pres�nt time e.xamiDallons for manager or overman are written and tire bos* c�rUficates written and oral. The new act makes the (Ire boss cer-iiUcate enUrely oral. Provisional certificates may only be granted to men to act as managers without certificate in small mines where not more than 30 men are employed and only in the lignite coal fields where gas does not occur. If owner or manager wishes to have a check weigher apjpointed by the men removed he must apply to a Judg� of the district court and not to a justice of the peace as hitherto. Plans are also reiiuired fo he kept of abandoned workings, in order to prevent accidents through other workings running Into them.
