From last Friday until now heavy rains have fallen over the whole of the North- west and every rivulet is a roaring x torrent and every river a lake, Bridges have been washed out or dy- namited. Bailroad tracks are under water and when the traffic is not de- layed by these disasters nuge land- ii request made, it was put over as stated, the way.

Three matters were up for considera- tion, two of which were disposed of and one-laid over to the .next meeting. One subject related to the price of pillar work in the mines of the Inter- national Coal and Coke company at Coleman, the company insisting on a price being the union. The decision reached was -that new men should be tried at days pay, after which a contract price should be fix- ed by the comrsitteee. Another matter came from the lamp men of the Michel mines of the Crows Nest' Pass company. The lamp- men asked for an increase of pay to 1-2 a day which after con- sideration, was granted.
