i(OFFICIAL STATEMENT
issued by  Division No. 81. -Is
Simply a Fight for Union  Principle..
Till? Dispatch has boon requested liy the United Brotherhood of Railway Employees,
Vancouver Division 81 to publish tlie following:
To the Officers and Members
of Organized Labor throughout
the Doniinion of Canada.
Gentlemen and Brothers,^
The following review will unquestionably prove of interest
to uii.
Before touching on the causes
leading up to the strike and as
certain officials of the C. P. II.
have stated tlmt the objection
they have to tlie U. B. of R. E.
is that it is an American not a
Canadian organization; I think
it advisable to give in a few
words a history of the U. B. of
It, E. more particularly as it apply.-; to this organization on the
C. V. Railway. Tlie fact is the
U. 11 of R. E. was actually born
on the C. P. R. at Winnipeg
some four years ago, and existed there for two years before
the U». B. of R. R. in tbe Uuitoa

their highest officials are citizens of tho LI. 8. Itis an axiom
that capital recognizes no international boundaries and wherefore should labor recognize such
boundaries when its effe it
would lie to weaken the cause
of labor.
In June of last year two local
organizations of Railway men
on the C, P. R. at Vancouvei1,
namely the Local Freight Clerks
and the Freight Handlers each
comprising a small body of men
learned that President Estes of
tho U. B. of of R. E. would be
passing through this city in the
couse of a few days, and he consented to address these bodies.
In consequence of that address,
and subsequent investigation,
both bodies joined the U. B. of
R. E. though not at the same
moment.
Active interference with our
organization waa not commenced by the C. P. Railway until
about November, when tho
spies, or secret service agents of
the Company, obtained entrance
to our orde:\s, taking, of course,
the solemn obligation imposed
on its members not to reveal
what transpires in its meetings,
and until discovered in their infamous treachery, carried all information regarding our membership and business to their
employers.
Inconsequence of the information thus imparted the flrst
dismissal on account of membership in the U. P. of R. E. occurred in the   person of a young
man   employed    ut     N*jl***m,   •*
States came into existence.   It I thoroughly competent employ -
was originated   by   the Local I ee whose sole crime was a mem
bership in our union. This was
followed in December by the
removal of a lady stenographer
from her position, and the dismissal of the Agent of our Division in Vancouver. These latter cases were immediately taken up by a committee, and were
adjusted satisfactorily to the
U, B. of R. E. At all the interviews of tho committee with
the officials of thoC. P. R. the
latter denied that they had any
intention or desire to discriminate against members of the
U. B. of R. El For a short time
following this things were apparently smooth on the surface,
but tlie company was all the
time preparing  for the  strike

Freight   Clerks   and    Freight
handlers    at   Winnipeg,   and
the unjust treatment by the C.
P. R. of those classes of hitherto
unorganized'    employees   was
what compelled the birth of this
organization.        Subsequently
without any knowledge that an
organization bearing a similar
name was jn existence a large
number of the employees of the
Southern Pacftc Railway having
had the necessity for an organization comprising all classes of
Railway employees forced upon
them by the the management
of that Railway after  careful
study of all the plans and merits of existing unions of Railway men  all over  the world,     ^	
launched on the sea of unionism i which they were determined to
the U. B. of It. E. as it at pres-1
ent exists.
I; may say here the the rules
and regulations of the IT. B. of
R. E. are pattereued to a great
extent after those governing
the amalgamated association of
Railway servants of Great
Britain, an association which
embraces all classes of Railway
men in that country.
Shortly after the hirth of the
I). B. of It. E. iu the U. S. its
officers 'became cognizant of the
existence of an order under a
similar name in. Winnipeg
through the medium of the
Winnipeg Voice, correspondence was opened between tin1
two orders, and after investigation the Winnipeg Union in a
body joined the U. I!, of R. E.
which liad only recently come
into existence in the P. S. but
which was already much stronger numerically and in other respects than ils namesake of
Canada,
Now with regard to tbe objection of the C. P. Railway
that the U. B. of R.E. is not a
Canadian institution, I would
say that it is the only Union of
Railway men which had its
birth in Canada, and that all
Unions represented on and recognized by the C. P. Railway
Company have their headquarters in the  U, K., ami   all
The Providence Mine.
Returns have been received
by the Providence Mining company for the last car of ore sent
to the smelter at Trail, Tlie
net weight of the oro, after deduction of the usual allowance
for moisture, was 43,960 pjiuiuls,
oi' about 22 tons. Tho gross
value wn $3,674.73, being at the
rate of $161.49 per ton. The net,
returns, after payment of
freight and treatment charges,
were $3,410.87, or$155>05 per ton.
The values were: Gold, 2,17 ozs.
silver, 265.2 ounces, and lead, 5
per cent per ton. These returns
compare very favorably wilh
those received from a car ship-
perl throe or four weeks earlier,
that shipment having returned
only $2,096.52 net frnm 3S,7«7V
pounds of oro, tho gold values'
having been unusually low. A
car shipped about tlu middle of
February, however, gave a return nearer to that just received, 41,032 pounds having brought
in $3,092.63 net or at the rate of
about §160.80 per ton clear of
freight and treatment charges.
Some vei'p rich specimens wero
received in the course of last
Saturday's and Sunday's work
in the Providence mine. One
of them gave assay values in
gold and silver at the rate of
$41,884.20 per ton. $40,924 being
in gold ami $900.20 in silver.
The specimen from whicli these
assay returns were obtained,
though rich looking ore, did not
show gold visable to lhe naked
eye. From both the Providence
and the adjoining Ell:horn
claim some of the most beautiful specimens of gold and silver
ores are being obtained right
along, and, as evidenced liy the
carload returns given above,
the bulk returns, while not
yielding sensational values,
leave an ample margin of prolit
above working expenses. The
Elkhorn will shortly ship a
couple of cars of ore, which
promises to give very satisfactory returns.
force unless the members of the
U. B. of It. E. would disband
and give up the right to organize. The plans of the Company
were soon completed, even to
the hiring of large numbers of
men to take the places of these
they were determined to force
to strike. Advertisements for
men to take the place of our
members were appearing in lbe
Seattle papers, and carloads of
men were on their way from
Eastern Canada days before
the strike occurred 11 d before
the I'. B. of ll. K. was aware
that a strike was to be forced.
About the middle of last
month (February) the C. P. R,
commenced operations by the
removal of some of our most
prominent members and officers to Montreal, the dismissal
and suspension of others at various points, the intimidation of
large numbers by the heads of
Departments by the statements,
in some cases that they would
be dismissed if they remained
members of the U. B. of R. 13..
and Dually the statement to the
freight handlers that their contract would he annulled and
would not be renewed unless
they left the Order.
In view of these facts, and
that unless we made an im mediate and firm stand our Union
must, inevitably be crushed, a
very largely attended meeting
of the U. b". of R. E. held on February 20th, decided to appoint a
committee to wait on Mr. Marpole to demand that an employee who had that day been
indefinitely suspended without
a ghost of a show of reason, except that he belonged to the U.
B. of R. E, and was ranking officer of that body iii Vancouver,
should be inini.'diji.oly reinstated and discrimination against
members of thai Order should
cease, and the Committee was
instructed to inform Jir. Marpole that unless these conditions
were complied with thai members of tho U. B. of R.E. would
cease work.
Mr. Marpole refused to lake
up the case of the employees lu
question with the Committee,
denied any knowledge of discrimination against members of
the IJ, I!, of It, E.', und, to gain
time, requested the Committee
to wait on him al a later date.
Knowing lull well that delay at.
this time meant thai the Company would have men on the
ground to Oil our places, we refused to wait any longer and
ceased work. ThoC. P.It.Company through the press has asserted thai President Estes ordered this strike. Nothing
could be further from the truth.
Mr. EsteS was, fortunately I'or
us, in Portland, Ore., at. the
time the strike occurred, and as
soon as this step was decided on
we wired him to come up, but
it was nol until he was within a
few miles of Vancouver that lie
heard that the strike was on.

THE BRITISH EMPIRE.
A meeting of the Iron    and
Steel Manufacturers was recently held in London with  tho object of considering how best to
meet tbe competition   of   the
United States.   Ebenezer Parks,
M. P., chairman, advocated
reform of the present free trade
systojn and closor trade  relations within   the Empire as a
means of meeting the "Ameri-
'can onslaught."   Papers   wore
read by commissioners of   the
Iron  Trade  Association,   who
wero sent to the United States,
in which   it  was  stated tiiat,
ponding the development of the
resources of the colonies, a period of serious competition from
tlie United States is to he expected.   Slowly, very slowly,  it
seems, hut   surely, the idea  is
growing  that   there  must  be
preferential trade within    the
Empire to meet the strong competition of the United Stales,
Germany and other countries.
The   British   people    are    the
greatest traders in the world,
and the only successful colonizers of modern times, they have
expended    blood and  treasure
freely in founding  an Empire
For instance.   They sacriticed a
billion dollars and thousands of
lives  in the Boer.war,   which
started in defence of the Empire and ended   in a large acquisition of territory to it; yet,
when one of the few statesmen
who    advocates    preferential
trade within the Empire,   addresses   a British audience on
the subject, he gets a cold   reception.   Though admitting   it
would result in the development
of the colonies and thereby tend
to strengthen and weld together the component parts of   the
Empire, Ihey bowing beforo the
feliets of free trade, refuse to
tax themselves to attain so desirable an end.
king, was called the Witan. On '
die dertth of the king, a new
one was elected by the Witan,
the son of the late king boing
chosen, if he was capable, if not,
he was passed over for a more
suitable person.        These
people met roimd a moot hill or
sacred tree to administer justice
and to frame laws. Here, too,
the Witan, the wise men of the
village, met, corresponding
to our parliaments.
In those days the peio-
ples's representations . met
round a tree, while our representatives—not wise men—meet
iu a million-dollar parliament
building. Altogether, we think
it would better to get1 back to
first principles. We would like
to see our representatives meet
round oue of those big hollow
cedars on the coast, and some
day when they had taken refuge
fiom the rain within its sacred
licecincU, perliupt-, .Joe Martin
would close the aperture from
the inside arid keep them tliere
until'they had repented of
doubling the tux on crown
granted mineral claims and other pernicious legislation, or better still for ever. Then we
could start anew and tho Prior-
ites, McBrideites and Martinites
would be eliminated from our
politics to its everlasting good.

MUNICIPAL  INSTITUTIONS.
From time to time in these
columns, we have advocated
reform in the municipal system
of bhis province, but we have no
more idea of seeing reform in
this connection than we have
of seeing the milleuium ushered
in. The population of thc province increased from 08,173 in 18-
91 to 178,627 in IDOL A consideration of this circumstance
alone might well cause the people to ask themselves if there
are no good grounds for change
in our system of government,
but the great waste of public
moneys and the failure, under
Liberals Meet.
A largely attended meeting
of tho Midway LiboraL Association was held in McNicol's Hall
on Monday evening, when the
officers for the ensuing year
were election. James M:Nicol
was re-elected president;, Jas.
H. MdNanies, vice president, and
A. A. McPhail, Secretary Treasurer. Delegates were appointed to attend a meeting of Eholt
Midway and Greenwood, held at
the later place on Tuesday even
ing for the purpose of talking
over matters in connection
with thoroughly organizing the
Liberal party throughout the
district, so that in the event pf
the next provincial election
being bold on party lines the
Liberals could give a good account of themselves. Six delegates from Midway and one
from Eholt attended the meeting. Views of those from different plages wee exchanged
and tho suggestions given by
those, from the different associations, will later be brought
up for discussion and some de
finite plan of action decided
upon.

The trip occupied two days.
Even to-day by that
route involves two days and an
exence ol. over $13. for transportation alone. In fact, there
is no way a passenger from the
Boundary country can reach
Spokane by starting over the C.
P. It. in loss than two days,.
But to-day travelling over the
C. P. It. to roach that city is a
thing of the past, only indulged
in by tho few who find time
hanging heavily on their hands,
and, therefore, wish to spend it,
together with their money, in
travelling. With the advent of
the Great Northern into Curlew,
stages wero put on from Greon-
wood to Midway, and from here
to Curlew, reaching tHero in
time to connect with tho Groat
Northern train for Spokana
Not only can the trip in thi way
be made in one day but the rate
from Midway to Spokane, including stage fare, is only $7.90,
thus passengers from the Boundary country aud points west of
Midway, going to Spokane can
save time and money by travel
ling via the Great Northern.

SATURDAY, APRIL 11,   1««.
Continued from Pago 1-
events you are probably familiar. How. for instance, the
members of the Longshore-'
men.s Union, the Teamster's
Union, and the B. C. Steani-
Bhipmon's Society realizing that
this was a light simply and solely for the right to organize, and
that it was impossible for them
to work in conjunction with
scabs by accepting freight handled by them, also went out on
strike.
In the early part of this struggle the Board of Trade of Vancouver, the Trades & Lahor
Council af Vancouver and Premier Prior on behalf of the Government of British Columbia
offered their services as arbitrators, and in each case the U. B.
of tt. E. accepted the offers
without hesitation, hut the C.
P. R. Company refused tlieiu.
Mr. Marpole then offered for
obvious reasons, to accept the
arbitration of a committee from
the other unions of railway
men of the C. P. It.. This was
at lirst refused by President
Estes on behalf of the U. B. of
R. E. for reasons published in
the press tit the time, but was
afterwards unconditionally ac-
cptol hy llint body only to find
that Mr. Marpole then refused
to accept his own proposition,
because there was really only
one point involved, whicli was
the right to organize, and that
ho was determined not to concede.
Negotiations then censed, and
we have since been conducting,
with the aid of the other Unions whicli have stood with ur
so nobly in this trouhle, a  vig
orous light for the right to or
gtt'iize and   for   union   princi
pies, and I am most happy to
say our prospects of success are
of the brighest.   It is simply
a question of presenting an un
broken front to the enemy and
victory is ours.
Of course you are aware of
the prosecution (?) of President
Estes for alleged endeavor to
delay His Majesty's mail, the
plaintiff in the case being a C
P. K. special service man. Tuc-
ticts, such as these, are commonly adopted by corporations
undor similar circumstances,
but they eventually prove in the
nature of a boomerang, as the
general public, realizes that persecution, uot prosecution, is the
real aim in the case.
You will be plersed to learn, I
am sure, that after presenting
our case fully to the Trades &
Labor Council of Vancouver,
Winnipeg. Nelson and Calgary,
of course was unanimously endorsed by these bodies and all
the help in tbeir power proffered to us.
In conclusion I wish to state
that the U. B. of tt. E. realizes,
and sincely regrets, that the
public has been caused very considerable inconvenience and
loss owing to this unfortunate
strike, and they wish it understood that this strike was not
of their seeking, tlmt they had
no thought of striking, no desire to strike, but the time, appearing opportune to the Company, and it being.its determination to crush the U. B. of R.
E. on the 0. P. R., that company
adopted such tacticts towards
the IT. B. of R. E. as they knew
would compel them to strike, or
allow their organization to be
killed without a blow in its defence. Yours fraternally,
