Notes Published in the Canadian Illustrated News, 20 September 1873, p. 184 and 185 \\\"Our second view takes in the works of the International Colliery, undoubtedly the most complete colliery in Cape Breton. — Lingan basin with colliers at anchor, and Lingan surface works form the subject of our background. Miners in general are a very migratory race and ten cents per diem is a great inducement for a \'flitting\'. In the mining district it is no uncommon sight to see on the high road a cart containing the miner’s household goods and his entire family \'flitting\' to a new home. Ten cents per diem caused the breaking up of this establishment, involving a change of residence, and breaking up of family ties, which ordinary citizens outside of mining districts particularly dread.\" (NSARM Library)
