That it is an inconsistent policy, and altogether' contrary to the liuy-'"at-honic spirit, to ask the miners in �the district to spend tlieir quarter of a million pay roll "at home" anil ithcn turn around and burn gas, simply because it is "nicer", is the opinion of leading members ot the IBoard of Trade. The miners have not escaped the counsels of the wise ones, to spend th&ir money where tlvoy earn their living, and tliey have been consistently asked to patronize home industry. The question that some ot the busi-iicss men are asking themselves as well as others is, "cau wo expect them to buy our goods when we don't buv the product that gives them tlicir living ?"
