SIFTON MAY GO OVERT Michel Miners and Company Adjust Differences Amicably (Special to the Herald.) Fernie, March 1.-The trouble over the ventilation question which has been the cause of a stoppage of work at Michel for several days has been settled in a most satisfactory way, and the men go back to work at once. This decision was reached after a thorough discussion by the men and their representatives, with the officials of the Crows Nest Pass Coal Company. There was a large vote cast upon the question and out of a total vote of 759,572 voted to go back to work as against 187 in the negative. The Crow's Nest Company have made a written agreement with Its employees to install a telephone system in the Michel mines, which will greatly facilitate the CQnveyance of information, from the fan house to any part of the mine, and in case of any disarrangement of machinery which might Interfere with the ventilation of the mine. This action upon the part of the company, marks a new departure In mining in the Pass, and Is one that is certain to be of great use, not only in cases of danger of accident, but in the every day operation of the underground places. This happy ending of what seemed liable to cause an unpleasant break in the relations of operators and men upon the eve of the discussion of the terms of a new agree^ ment. which is to govern during the next two years, will tend largely to smootii the way to harmonious action during the negotiations which precede the adoption of a new scale of wages and thfi adjustment of other difference which will have to come before the parties moat concerned. the Board of Trade's proposed paid subscription list exceeds the said grant of $6,000, that the city further jpay dollar for dollar in excess of the amount* of the above grant as same is subscribed."

Toronto, March 2.-Washington special to the Star this morning says: "When the Senate met today after a session which ended at 1.3^ a.m. all hope of forestalling an extra session was abandoned. .Dilatory tactics aimed at the bill for a perrr?.ncnt tariff board by Senators Hale, Heyburn and Stone last night were taken to indicate that from novy on until Saturday noon the trick would permit only the passage of the regular appropriation bills.
