Seattle, Wash., Aug. 10. - Passengers arriving from Victoria report that the British Columbia miners are furious over the new Ottawa mining law, denouncing it in unmeasured terms. Meetings are being oalled in all the mining districts of the province calling for imonediate aetion to secure its repeal. John Grant, ex-member of the British Columbia parüament, denounces it as "legaiized robbery." "It amounts," said he, "to offering a premium on crime. No miner is going to pay 20 per cent. on his output. It is the most senseless thing I ever heard of, and for thè life of me I cannot understand on what grounds the Dominion could have framed the measure."
