A Boycott
 Iared All Over tho
Vancouver Trades and LaborOoun-
oil Take Aotion-Labor Unions
Asked to Join in the Boycott.
A strong fot'liugof indignation is bo
ing expressed all over Canada regarding the action of the Goodoi'bam syndicate towards tlie employees ol their
minod in Rossland. Vigorous action U
belBR taken to assist the minors in
their struggle. The follouina' article
taken from tho Vancouver World of
December 24, expresses tho feeling of
the wotklngmen of the west:
"Tho labor mon of tho provinco are
asked to drink no moro Gooderham &
Worts' whiskies; at least not until such
times as tlu Kossland labor troubles in
connection with the mines iu which the
Gooderbam syndicate is interested are
finally settled. The Vancouver Trades
aud Labor Council held its regular
meeting last night and after a discussion of tho subjoot resolved lo boycott
the firm.
"Tbis, perhaps, is the most aggress-
ivo action taken by tho labor pooplo
against any of tho firms who control
thc mines. Usually thoy are so situated thai thoy are not getatable, but In
this Instance tlio men feel they can hii
one of the chief owners by another
"Gooderham, the manufacturer of
whisky, is connected with tho syndicate nf Gooderham & Blaokstoolc,
which owns the War Knjrlo and Centre
Sun* mines at Rossland, -where ibe
su*ii\ * i.-. at pi'esent In progress.
"Considerable of the productions of
tho distillery firm como to this province, aud as iho labor element forms a
largo portion of the population, thn
boycott will raeutl something. Tbe notion taken last night by the Trades and
Labor Council wasdoolslvo and after
the matter had been fully discussed.
"Thoother unions in the province
will be asked to join In and make the
boycott general.
"He-lie 'S inviting all subordinate
unions throughout the province to join
with then in eschewing any of the
products of thu Gooderham & Worts
distillery, In consequence of Mr.
Gotklorham's prominent identification
witb the Rossland mines in which
owners and employees have been at
outs for some time past, it has been do-
elded to extend tlie proscription lo
other largo concerns In which Gooder-
hai ipital is Invested, notably the
Manufacturers'  Life   Assurance company and the Canknf Toronto."

haB opened up three very nice leads
from 11 Inches io two feet wide, carrying good value in silver and lead. Mr.

is to tup tho main lead, whioh has immense surface showings. It is expected
this will bo tapped within tho next 10

good cause to feel jubilant ovor tho way
thoir investment is turning out. The
superintendent states in his letter that
the lead Is widening out and the indications are that a large body will ho

Mi*. Lance Hilman, wbo has charge
of tho work on tho Horse Shoo, was
down and spent Now Year's at Trout
Lake. Mr. Hilman has none back to
the claim and has taken an additional
number of men with him. Mr. Hilman reports that the claim never looked
better. Thoy have considerable ore
saoked and intend to break a rawhide
trail lo tho mine sometime during the
present month. When this trail Is
made to the Horso Shoe, lhe owners of
the Ruffled Grouse Intend to make a

There aro frequent eases where men

evade tbem���they don't make the
ease lit the laws but make tho laws to
fit, the case, it's a lot easier and saves
the down trodden capitalists a lot of
trouble. Wonder why the working-
men don't do that way? It is generally understood that the working people of this country poll-75 percent, ot

is'ut it, that they don't have a lew laws
mado to suit their ease?

Mr. Clarence King, geologist and
mining engineer, died at Phoenix, Arizona, on December 24th.
Clarence King stood entirely alone
in his world-wide reputation as a mining geologist, and as the pioneer in
governmental work in this kind of geological exploration, .lust as Hayden
was the groat master of general reconnaissance work over great areas of thc
west at a timo whon tbey wete almost
unknown, so King stands out beyond
all other explorers for his more quantitative examination of the west's mineral deposits.
Clarence King was born in Newport,
R. L, January I), 1812. At, 20 years of
ago ho graduated from the Sheffield
Scientific School, and the next year at
the opening of tho spring season ho
crossed the continent with James Ti
Gardiner, his college friend. They
went with an immigrant train for the
purpose of becoming well acquainted
with the region west of tho Missouri
rivor. Tliis was a four months' journey
,m horseback, in which Mr. Ki't' began thu work which was bis gn
contribution to geological science, thai
of applying nn exact scientific training

Prof. .1. T. Whitney, with Prof. William II. Brewer In charge of the lield
weil;. In that year Brewer ami Kim'
explored the Northern Sierras, especially tho recion about Mount Shasta,
Gal., and during Ihu winter months
Kins joined iu the examiuation of tlie
Mariposa mines, ln the following year
ho was actively engaged again with a
party under Prof. Brewer, this time exploring tlie southern part of the Sierra
Ni-va'la:'. On Ibis expedition King
climbed and named Mount Whitney
nnd Mount Tindall. King and James
T. Gardiner were again associated in a
goological and topographical survey of
the Vosomlte valley for the state of
California, and during thu winter they
made an exploration of Aristouu under
tho direction of General McDowell, in
command of the department of Arizona.
This work was interrupted by tho hostility of the Apache Indians.
This exploratory work convinced
King of the folly of attempting a proper
sclentfUo survey of the west ivithout
government aid, and during tlie winter
nl 18(10 and 1807, he succeeded, through
ins personal Influence and his persuasive enthusiam, in scouring the necessary authority and funds from congress
for d sclontilie survey from tho eastern
slopo of iho Rocky mountains lo Ibe
Pacific ocean. He was placed iu charge
under General Humphreys, of the
Thonexl live years of bis life were
spent in tlie prosecution of lhe geological exploration of ihu 40th parrell,
whioh resulted iu a complete geological
aud topograph ieal cross-section of tho
whole system of the Cordillera of Western America. The publications resulting from this work of King and the
bund of distinguished mining geologists gathered by him, hitvo becomo
classics iu mining geology. Those reports contributed not only a vast
amount of well arranged scientific
fuels, but established standards and
methods of thu highest order for the
Geological Survey of Iho United States,
which followed in its natural sequence,
with Clarence K ing as its first director.
Iu tho courso of this long series of
labors in the geology of tho western
part of the, continent, King began a
long series of laboratory experiments
to determine the inter-action of primal
constituents of tbe globe, under condl-
ins ni' bom and pressure. Thecheml-
l and ph*, cal v.. t'k :eq In for
these experlmeuts was very costly and
not entirely completed at the time of
King's death.
In the latter years of his life. Mr.
King was most actively engaged in the
development of tho mineral doposttsof
tbo United States, in which he displayed th" roost remarkable physical
vigor and activity. Mr. King traveled
widely, was nf varied cultivation in
letters anil in art, and a must alert and
fascinating thinker, whieh mude his

Labor Versus Capita/.
During the last fifteen years there
has been a great  tendency  to concentrate  wealth.    A few  men have
become great employers of labor.
Some people regard  Ibis concentration as an  unmixed evil, but if it is
rightly controlled it can undoubtedly
be turned to the benefit ol the working   classes.    To   meet   this   great
concentration of capital the  leaders
of the laboring classes  have  been
very active in the formation of labor
unions and we have to-day the greatest organizations of laboring  men
that tbe world has ever seen.    This
is undoubtedly as  il .should  be and
is only a natural  application of the
law of compensation.    In   the first
stages  of concentration  of capital
nnd the organization of labor, each
class looked upon   the  other as its
mortal  enemy to  be   met  and  defeated  on   all   possible   occasions.
This view still holds in the minds of
a goodly number of each class and
until   they can   ne brought   to view
thing's in a different   light, conflicts
between labor and capital are inevitable.    Mil]   are   naturally selfish.
Kach class is apt lo view a question
from it's own standpoint and while
the laboring classes are not less selfish than lhe capitalist, I think that
any fair-minded man is ready lo admit lhat the capitalists have exhib-
'ted this selfishness   loa far greater
extent  than the laboring  men.    It
seems to be natural   in  man  to be
unsatisfied with sufficient wealth to
meet all  ihe  requirements of life,
but' wben   they  acquire  enough to
supply all Ihe   reasonable   demands
of file, they get grasping and reach
out to acquire more just lor lhe pure
love   of   acquisition.      Hence   the
greater greed  of the capitalist.    A
man iu tbis state is reallv ins.iff .--
that   question   and   is   nol   a   lit or
proper person to  control the means
of   livelihood  of   thousands of his
iellow en attires.    We   have an example  of  the   unreasonableness of
the  capitalist  in   the  case of  Mr.
Qlackstoi k, who, instead of discussing the strike situation al Rossland
in a calm  dispassionate  manner as
we  would expect a   man of his  nl-
lainments to do, deliberately made
statements   which   can    easily   be
proven to be false.    We  all  know
that   Ibe   leaders  of   the   striking
miners ul. Rossland are men of education and good  citizens instead of
being ignorant foreign agitators as
Mr. Blackstock tried to lead the people of the cast lo believe.    It is just
such  men  as  this Blackstock that
have caused the  laboring classes to
regard   their   employers   as   their
natural   enemies.    Tliis   feeling of
animosity  between  employers  and
employed is a serious draw-back to
lhe  development of lhe  natural resources of the country.    No man
feels  safe  in   investing   money  in
stocks,   especially   mining   stocks,
when   he   don't  know   the minute
lliey may become practically valueless through labor troubles.    Again
lhe money lost by employers through
strikes   would  in   the   majority  of
cases more than   meet the  just demands ol their men.    The concentration of capital and  the organization o? the  workers  has  made the
aSTtttidn.of tin's difficulty comparatively  easy.    Let   lhe   government
pass an act under which the different
labor organizations could become in-
liditors the country over know
that the great trusts have killed
competion because Ihe production by
machinery as now-a-days conducted
cannot be consumed by the masses,
and consequently the economic principles of protection and free trade
have died a natural death, so far as
being live issues wilh Ihe public.
And governments are all the same.
It is now a question wilh the people whether the trusts will be allowed to continue to control and
regulate trade and commerce, and
until the issue is settled the papers
will prostitute their principles in the
interests of trusts or any body willing lo patronize their editorial
columns the same as space. Papers
are springing1 up all over the land
and dying off by the Ihousaiid in
this madf race of competition for
supremacy. This will so continue
till they, too, form trusts and pool
advertising rates, for the papers are
not run as purveyors of news in the
accepted sense ot the term, but
merely as advertising mediums. The
doing away wilh mass meetings was
once talked of because it was
thought tbat the people could depend upon the arguments set forth
by editors in their journals being
bona fide. Hut they soon got over
thai notion. Go into the average
newspaper office to-day and you wil!
find editorial writers who don't believe one word they write and don't
care, because they sell their brains
for the wages they receive. Yes,
this is real commercialism in newspapers, which is practised right here
in British Columbia. All over the
world organized labor is putting its
organs in tlie field to champion their
principles asagainsttrusts and monopoly, and the commercial class ol
daily publications. This is the new
kind ol journalism that will ultimately put an end to our present
class of daily papers. These are
conditions,, tiijii tiie newspapers as
well as any other business must
lace, and in tiie long run honesty
will prove to he lhe best policy.���

sa fraud.���-Western Mining World.
From time to time, especially
across the water, discussions will be
started as lo wlio is a mining engineer and who is not, how you can
tell an engineer when you see one,
and so forth and so on. There is
no rule, and we doubt very much
whether one can be drawn up. How
often is it seen that a man with no
education, with no pretense of being an "engineer," will make a
commercial s> .;ss of a mine tbat
jn engineer with ail kinds of degrees, etc., has most miserably
failed in. How often will a leaser
take hold of a mine after an engineer has got through wilh it and
make a big mine out of an abandoned properly. In addition to
education, which we .ould be the
last to decry, a man must have
"faculty," to useajf New England
expression, in ordtf'ty be a mining
engineer. To be ah djiiament to
his profession he must have, in addition lo education and faculty,
gumption and the power1 to "ivork
hard. Of these four qualities a
man can get along very well wilh
only three, and the non-essential
quality is not either faculty, gumption or the power of working hard.
Tbe milling schools are turning out
year by year many men who lack at
least one of the essentials required
to make a mining engineer, and
these men are hound to be failures,
or, at ihe best, only Indifferently
Il is frequently marvelous lo see
how unerringly a man, wilh a well
developed mining instinct, will go
straight for a body of ore. This
holds true whether the man is educated or not, and indeed education
seems to fail at developing this instinct.
In view of all this we may say
that there is no rule to measure
engineers by or even to tell them
when one sees them. We know,
however, a most excellent rule to
detect a spurious engineer. Wli*n
a man parades arbundjn Jiigh boots,
flannel shirt, corduroy suit, etc., and
uses long words when short ones |

The Commonwealth, a first class
Canadian monthly review, which
has just completed the first year ot
its existence at Ottawa, in discussing the possibility of flying machines notes lhe fact that an English
firm is reported to be actually manufacturing these new vehicles for sale
and are now filling orders to be
ready next March. The Commonwealth remarks that with the permanent success of airships, protection will become impossible and a
system of universal free trade will
be inaugurated. It is easy to foresee
other important changes which the
possibility of aerial navigation must
introduce. Fortresses and navies
as a means ol national defence will
become obsolete. The flying battleships of the future will laugh both
stone walls and wooden walls to
scorn. All modern methods of ware-
tare will be rendered impracticable.
The present modes of transportation, the Continental Limited Express and the Atlantic Greyhound
will follow the stage coach and canal boat of our fathers into oblivion.
The thousands upon thousands of
miles of railway track now existing
in Europe and America will be used
only, if used at all, tor transport
when the value is slight Or time no
object, just as nowadays certain
classes of goods travel to San Francisco and Vancouver from Europe
round Cape Horn. It will be noted
as a sign ol simple, unprogressive
people that travellers in a country
still have lo make use of the railway
lo proceed from one point to another. Oh, but all this is along)
way off! Il may not be so far as j
some people imagine. Men are
still alive to-day, who were present

Is thc Coming Solid Town of the
Lardeau and Trout Lake District
K* Because of its unique geographi-
m cal position; nature having props vided as pretty a flat bench, at
the junction o\ the north and
south forks of Lardeau creek, as
ever a town was built up on in
British Columbia.
Because the wonderful mineral
developments during the past
season have been a marvel to
outsiders seeking investment.
Not only have the old stand-by
properties improved with depth,
but the new finds and many test
ore shipments are exceedingly
gratifying, and attention must
surely be attracted this way.
Because the shipping mines are
located on Nettie L. hill, between the two creek forks; on
the Great Northern hill just
north of the town itself; and on
the south fork and its tributaries,
for all of which Ferguson is the
supply point.
Because mine owners hire their
crews in Ferguson and pay them
off in Ferguson.
Because the offices of many o(
the companies operating in the
camp are located here.
Because Ferguson receive.-, the
pay roll benefit from these working mines.
Because this is the point  where
mining men coming into the district make their headquarters; as    JS
they can \fa!;c or ride and return
from  mo:*! of the properties  in
one day or less.
Bec tUSE everv pound ai ore Irom
these mines coming ,do\vn Che
hill lands first in Ferguson.
From here it will be trained to
transportation on the lake, a ffl.
distance of four miles.
Because when the railway readies
the place where the minei i are il
will reach Ferguson.
Because there is every natitl al advantage for the building uj > of a
great mining center.
But why give other reasons: We have the mines, the pay roll, the natural geograj, hi* ||
cal location, the supply trade, the banking institutions, unlimited water power for' ai! M
purposes; and the right kind of people to make a town. The ore shipments, increash iff
business, and money and enterprise will do thc rest.     Come here and sec for yoursR V-
