Tbe Smelter and Mine Owners and Organized <L��bor Lining Up for i Long and
Disastrous Conflict.
It looks as if the despotic and
deplorable nets of the Coeur d'Alene
I strike are about to lie repeated at
Northport, Wash. A celebrated
Pinkerton detective has been engaged to manage the fight on the
part of owners and employers at
the Northport smelter, where a
strike is on, lead by the smelter-
men's union, and which it is said,
the smelter management refuses to
recognize ai d is i:eekiitg t�� disband.
From a study of ihe movement-'
leading up to this difficulty it is declared by many that the smelter
and mine owners generally have
entered into a combination to break
up the labor organizations in this
province and state of Washington.
Ii is said the services of the Rossland Miner and the Nelson Miner
have been eecured for this purpose,
and it is a well-known fact that the
Spokesman-Review is still smarting
from discipline administered by
looa unions, and has no love f ir or;
ganized labor. A dispatch sent out
from the scene of this disturbance
states in effect that the smelter company will es.abli.-.h a town within
(he limitH of their property, thus
making the institution independent
of the town of Northport, and that
the smelter will be treating ore on
or about the 15th instant, regardless of the union, which is to be ig
nored. The company is said to be
arranging to put on a force of 400
or 500 men. The smelter grounds
are thoroughly policed; a dead line
has heen drawn at the limits of the
smelter grounds and beyond this
mark no one can penetrate without
being promptly held up and cross
questioned as to his business. No
force is used, hut if the interloper
seems to be prying he is warned off.
The strikers' committee frequently
goes to the dead line and talks to
the non-union men with a view to
persuading them to quit work. Any
of the men now at work who desire
to go down town can have an escor'.
Some of the men living in town
never go tn or return from work
unless accompanied by a couple of
the specials.
The company proposes to erect
scores of cottages on their grounds
for the accommodation of men who
will be brought in to go to work.
A messhouse is already completed
and in use, and it is understood
that ground will he broken, shortly
(or a bunk house capable of accommodating a large number of men.
In addition the company will establish a store for the convenience
o! their employes who may not care
to go down town lest they should
he exposed to the taunts of the union men. This last move has alienated the sympathies of the North-
port business men, who see in the
establishment of a company store
the withdrawal from the town mer
chants of the trade on which they
depended. Hitherto the merchants
have been neutral at least, but it is
safe to predict that their influence
iii future will be cast in the other
Bcale. Whether the municipal council can harass the smelter company
in the way of increasing their taxes
remains to be Been.
Al the smelter ore is being received from the Rossland mines
constantly. Three roasting binB
are in operation and two others are
being charged. The company has
storage capacity on their ground
for all the ore that can be produced
from the Rossland mines for the
next three months, so that it is inferred that the mines are in no danger of being closed down.
If Detective Swayne's statement
that the No. 1 furnace will be
blown in by the middle of the
month, proves correct; it must be
conceded that the company has
won the first move in the fight.
The accomplishment of this will
require a large crew of men tn be
delivered on the ground within the
next week, and it is expected that
a strong force will be concentrated
in Spokane and brought into North-
port in a bunch. If the union men
succeed in sidetracking some of
these, the majority will be got within the company's lines and beyond
the influence of moral suasion before the union men are able to
bring ibeir arguments to bear.
A strong-union picket is located
in Spokane, and others are patrolling the railway and roads into
Northport, about 60 men in all being employed on this work. Up to
the present time the pickets have
been successful in turning back a
number of men who were not aware
of the exact situation.
It is evident that the contest here
is intended to be a test of the relative strength of the forces engaged.
On one hand is arrayed n corporation backed with almost unlimited
capital. The management of the
smelter will hire individuals without regard to their affiliation with
labor organizations, fraternities or
churches, but will not, if they succeed in the present fight, recognize
tne union formed by the smelter
men.
The latter are fighting for recognition as a uni.ui. The strikers will
have the moral and financial assistance of unions generally, and the
Western Federation of Miners in
particular.

GLADSTONE BRIEFLETS.
June 7,1901.
Our friends the Grant Bros, are
doing a thriving business this year
with the miners operating in the
Burnt Basin and on Norway mountain, Mr. McKay lining the packing.   Hope it will contii.ue.
Mr. Bert Rae and party arrived
here Tuesday from Rossland, to look
over the Tammany group in  the '
Basin, on which it is expected work
will be begun shortly.
Mr. J. Munn was laid up for a
time with a lame back, but is again
working on his claim. Mr. Hall,
���his partner, formerly C. P. R. operator at Coryell, seems to stand
mining all right. Don't give it up,
R. P.
Mr. Martin Johnson, proprietor
of the Glandstone hotel, expects to
do a fair business this summer.
He appears to be the right man in
the right place, and he says that
the mines surrounding Gladstone
are looking well, mid everyone seem*
satisfied this place will make another Butte.
Mr. 1'. A. Monro of Cascade, ie
doing assessment work here on s
clam held by Mr3. Monro. Fete
says it is another Bonanza mine.
Hope it is, Pete.
Our section foreman, Robert McLean, formerly of Cascade, has experienced a hard spring, both oa
himself and his men, owing to the
numerous slides.
Mr. Henry Jackson, manager of
the Mother Lode property, was in
town yesterday. It is expected he
will start work on that group soon.
Our citizens are anxious to see-
work begun, on the wagonroad to
Norway mountain, but heretofore
deep snows have retarded the work
of surveying out the course.
June 12, 1901.
The continued wet weather hae-
driven many  prospectors in from .
the Basin and other camps in this
vicinity, work being sadiy delayed
on that account.
Prospectors J. Munn and R. P.
Hall had a narrow escape from being
crushed hy a falling rock from the
top of the mountain. Their bellows was hit hy ihe descending rock
and damaged to an extent that made -
it necessary to bring it to town for
repairs. '
Court was in session this week
but the docket was light, and all
the troubles were happily settled
by arbitration. The principal case
was between two highly respected
citizens oi this town. After court
was dismissed the parties thereto
repaired to the Hotel Gladstoi ���>-
where a bountiful repast awaited
them, and amid the clinking of
glasses and popping of corks the
evening was passed in a very sociable manner.
Officer Dinsmore paid a flying
visit to Gladstone for the purpose
of looking over the proposed wagon
road and pack trails.
Dan Clagk arrived from Burnt
Basin this morning after doing assessment work on bis property, and
departed this afternoon for Rossland.
Messrs. Sandner and Griffin arrived on the local scene yesterday to- 2
T--i    rs \ <?-��� ��� T-Tji    p������   '���- - r\
JUNE 15, IDIU
-do assessment work on their claim
adjoining the John Bull property.
Mr. C. E. Smith, of Idaho, has
been visiting several properties in
the neighborhood of Burnt Basin,
in the interest of a Chicago capitalist. Mr. Smith i6 a practical mining man and knows what he is
-about.
Cal Bing arrived here yesterday
from the Basin to try his skill as an
angler, at which lie is said to be an
adept.
MikeShick,of Mother Lode camp,
has discovered another big vein of
high grade ore on the Snow Drift,
in Burnt Basin.
Mr. James Nesbitt, who lias been
working at the Victoria mine in the
Christina Lake district, paid our
town a flying visit on Monday, returning in the evening. He says
���thingB are looking fine at the Victo-
-ria mine. Say, Jim, how ate the
ilndians in that part of the country. R. Neck.

"THE WORLD DO MOVE."
That the conflict between
employer and employe���capital and labor���is increasing, is
evidenced b)' the numerous
lockouts and strikes now raging all over the country. This
constant agitation, this never
ending clashing of interests,
with the accompanying loss,
���suffering, woe and even death,
must in time result in the existence of a more harmonious
relation between these two
classes. Shall it be by revolution or by evolution ? Neither class is wholly bad, and
���ach may learn valuable lessons from the other. The last
decade has witnessed the formation of trusts, combines,
and aggregations of capital of
such stupendous magnitude
as to attract the attention of
the civilized world. By this,
it is contended, the benefits of
community of interests and
harmony of purposes are recognized, and that better and
more satisfactory results will
be obtained by the interests
involved than under the old
method of competition and
contention.
Now let this combine be
still farther reaching, so that
labor���another form of capi
tal���may share in the benefits
accruing, and good will come
from a seeming bad. Sooner
or later these two factors must
be harmonized. War, oppression and revolt, with their accompaniments of lockouts
strikes, wars, etc, may for a
time prevail, resulting in mutual loss and ill feeling, but
harmonious relations must exist before each of the two factions will reap to the fullest
extent the benefits of their investments.
The first move to accomplish this must be by eliminating discord within itself by
each faction; the combine of
interests among the employ
ing classes is a material step
in that direction by this faction; the employed classes
should not fail to draw the lesson from this example; then
with harmony existing in each
body, the better element will
control each, sound judgment
prevail, unity of action result,
conflicting interests will be
come reconciled and mutual
good result���all by evolution.
THE BOUNDARY LINE [MOVED SOUTH.
The American International
Boundary line surveyors have
moved the line five-eighths of
a mile further south in the
Mt. Baker district. This was
a surprise to the Americans
who had mining interests in
the doubtful territory, and has
resulted in some Canadians
jumping the claims so located.
This should not '..e allowed by
our government. The locators
made such location in good
faith, without violation of any
law, and they should not be
despoiled of their rights because of the failure of both
governments to establish a
permanent boundary line.
Both governments are equally
to blame in the matter, and
not the locators.
Busy Times Ahead.
From this on there will be considerable activity in Cascade. The
poles for the electric wires between
here and Phoenix are, we are now
told, to be gotten from the vicinity
nf Christina lake.
The pole-stakes on the right of
way have all to be re-set owing to
the long delay that has taken place,
which will take a crew nf men some
little lime to accomplish. Then the
work of completing the rock cut for
tlie fiumeway will employ another
crew for a month or more.
Meanwhile, low water permitting,
work on the powerhouse will be he
gun and pushed foward with all
possible haste, which will be followed by the placing of the flume-pipe.
Altogether the different branches of
the work will require the services of
a large force of men.
Besides, we are told that in about,
three weeks the Genelle Bros., will
begin the work of placing and operation of their new and enlarged
sawmill plant.
Thus it will he seen that the weary
waiting days nf Cascade are about
over, and days of activity and hustle are to take their place.
It is to lie regretted that while
at least $10,000 will be applied in
building roads and trails to prospects in Rossland riding that will
never return the cost of recording,
it is exceedingly difficult to secure
any aid to repair and construct the
more legitimately needed lines of
travel. Up at the head of Christina lake are not only valuable
mineral prospects, but large tracts
of good agricultural hinds. Some
of this land is already under cultivation, and several parties are anxious to pre-empt claims up' there
but are deterred from doing so on account of its inaccessibility. This obstacle could be removed and a prosperous farming pommunity built
up at the head of the lake by the
expenditure of it few hundred dollars in the construction of a good
trail from Texas Point, a distance
of six or seven miles. This aid
cannot be secured, while the Rossland push succeeds in securing
$5,000 to construct a wagonroad to
to what is said to be a wild-cat
mining speculation on Grenville
mountain. But we suppose these
iniquitous frauds must be endured
until a more modem system of government is adopted, and mtincipiil-
ities are erected throughout the
province, which shall have power
lo direct their own affairs instead
of us now being at the mercy of individual influence of a coterie of
politicians operating on a centralized government through an army
of agencies.
The work of surveying the railway line hetween here and Columbia river having heen completed, the
force so employed is now camped at
Hall's Ferry awaiting orders to begin the work of cross-sectioning.
BRIEF "LOCAL MENTION,
Mrs. V. Monnier is a guest at the
home of Mis. Wm. Anderson.
Mrs, Grant from Gladstone has
been a visitor at Laurel Ridge this
week.
Rev. W. R. Craw,  stationed  at
Columbia, in charge of the Presbyterian society of that place, was a
guest of Rev. E. G. Robb of Cascade, a few days this week.
Mr. Angus Cameron reports some
new and rich discoveries in the
Burnt Basin district. He say the
prospectors are bringing in gold-
copper specimens from new finds
which indicate marvelous wealth.
We commence this week the reprinting of it series of original editorial articles cissored from the columns of the Victoria Colonist,, believing them valuable and fully
worthy the space they will ouccupy
and careful perusal by our readers.
Morrill A. Turner, who had been
a compositor in this nflioe the past
year-and-a-lialf, left Wednesday for
San Francisco, where he has a
brother in tlie wholesale and retail
candy business, and where he expects to remain permanently. He
went on the O. R. & N. from Spokane to Porland, where lie took
passage on one of thut company's
ocean steamers for his destination.
Mr. F. E. Tebo, C. P. R. agent at
this place, who bad been absent
from his post of duty about, three
months on a visit to bis boyhood
home in Ontario, returned to Cascade lust Monday night. He was
greeted at the depot by many ad-
mii'ing citizens, with welcome --ong
and hearty hand-shaking. Mr.
D. p'Connor, who hud filled Mr.
Tebo's position here during bis absence, accompanied by his wife, left
for their Winnipeg home Tuesday.
Mr. Thomas Price, of Fife, has
secured a contract on the so-called
Grand Forks-Republic railway, and
has had a force of men and teams
at work on the recently surveyed
line near Nelson, Wash., for a week
or more. In the meantime the promoters of that scheme are said to
have been endeavoring to sell out
to the Great Northern. It is not to
the credit of the local manipulators,
after clamoring vociferously for a
railway line to Republic, to get in
and try to block the proposition of
a bona fide and responsible company which is ready to construct the
desired line, by endeavoring to monopolize the right of way for merely speculative purposes.

THE CASCADE RECORD
BRITISH COLUMBIA.
THE COLONIST���-NO. I
The magnitude of British Columbia and the extent and diversity of its resources are such that
few people, if any, are able to take
them in as a whole arid form an
adequate conception of what are
the possibilities of provincial development and the task involved
in properly opening the country to
enterprise and colonization. We
shall endeavor in a -series of arti
cles to present in succinct form the
salient facts ben ring upon this subject, and shall be very glad if any
readers, who may follow what is
said and may have any additional
information to offer, will kindly
communicate it. Our desire is to
collect in convenient compass, the
fncts which influence British Columbians to form the opinion that
we not only have here the richest
province in Canada, but one of the
most favored regions on the globe.
At the present time capital and
enterprise are seeking out every
corner in the world, where there
are available openings. Especially
are British Columbia capital and
enterprise going everywhere. Climatic conditions, no matter how
adverse, do not deter them. The
lack of settled government and the
presence of unfriendly native tribes
are alike unable to keep them back.
All they seem to ask is a reasonable chance of profit. Risk does
not count. When we see what is
done in other parts of the world, we
sometimes think if this province
were more difficult of access, if
deadly disease haunted our coasts,
if hostile natives swarmed along
our rivers, if a merciless climate
rendered life here scarcely endurable, British enterprise would be
more attracted to this direction.
The spice nf danger, the element of
romance, would attract the decend-
ants of adventurers of Elizabeth's
day. But conditions here are prosaic. The country is easily reached. It is one of the healthiest regions on earth. There are no hostile natives. The climate is in
many parts ideal, and nowhere too
severe for comfortable living. The
seeker after wealth does not have
to array'himself in the paraphernalia of war aud carry with him
an arsenal as well as a bank account. It is simply a splendid
country to live in, -with a settled
government under the British flag,
where life nnd property is as free
as in the heart of the Empire itself.
It does not lend itself to blond-
curdling magazine stories, and the
illustrated press finds no sensations
here. There are no "natives" with
imaginary trade possibilities concealed about their otherwise naked
persons. Hence it does not attract
the attention that less favored parts
of the world do, To many people
it seems unreasonable that a part
of the globe, so rich in natural
wealth and so blest climatically as
British Columbia, should remain
unoccupied. Such people do not
take account of the vastness of
North America nor of the comparatively recent date within which the
the potentialities of this province
became known. Under these circumstances, we suggest that all
who are interested in the future of
this province .should engage, to the
best of their ability, in a campaign
of education. It is with this object that the series of articles, of
which this is the first, will be published. There will necessarily be
stated in them many things which
are familiar to many readers, but
perhaps even the very best informed among the latter will not
object on this account, but, on tbe
contrary, will follow what, is said,
and when they can will add what
of interest may occur to them. We
hope to point-out the way of making
the province better known, trusting
that others better equipped for the
work will give us their hearty cooperation in a labor which, to he
well done, will call for much research, and which no single individual can hope to do thoroughly.
The area of British Columbia is
approximately 400,000 square
miles. The latest official statement
on the subject is its follows:
"The total area of British Columbia is about 382,000 square
miles, of which 285,000 square
miles aro estotnated to be wooded."
A very large portion of the
mainland nnd many of the islands
hnvo not been surveyed, so that an
accurate statement of the area is
impossible. For purposes of comparison, we may take it to be the
figure first stated, namely, 400,000
square miles. The area of tbe
British Isles is 121,488 square
miles, that of Germany is 208,738
square mileB, that of France 207,801
square miles, and that of Spain
197,000 square miles. From its
southeastern corner, near tbe Kopt-
enay Pass, to the northwestern corner, near Mount St. Elias, the dis-
tunce is 1,250 miles, or as far as
from John O'Groat's House to Ma'
drid, or from London to St. Peters'
burg, air lines being taken in each
case.
British Columbia lies between
Ithe 49th and 60th parallels of
' north latitude, with the exception
I of the southern portion of Vancouver island, which extends to within
120 miles of tbe 48th parallel. In
I this connection it may be mentioned that Victoria, the capital of the
province, lies 20 minutes south of
the latitude of Paris, and Bennett,
the most northerly town in the province, is in the latitude of St. Petersburg. Between these latitudes in
Europe the greatest material and
intellectual progress of mankind
has taken place, and in point of
natural wealth and all other elements which go to make greatness
and prosperity possible, British
Columbia is at least equally well
endowed with the corresponding
portion of Europe. What it may
lack in one respect it makes up in
others. We do not wish to push
the comparison too far, and must
not be understood as claiming that
this province is ever likely to sustain as great a population to the
square mile as is crowded into Central Europe. The point which we
wish to make is that British Columbia is all within habitable latitudes,
and those in which men are at their
best. This is a consideration of the
greatest importance when the gen-
graphical position of the province
as regards Asia and the British Empire is taken into acconnt, for it
shows that here may be built up a
British community of the highest
type, and that here the greatest tri-
umphs of civilization are possible.
Big Blast At Cariboo Mil*.
Early on the' evening of the 12th
ult,, the large bank blast at the
Consolidated Cariboo Hydraulic
mine, at Bullion, wae successfully
exploded, with very satisfactory results. This blast contained 4,540
kegs (equal to 113,500 pounds) of
blast powder which was distributed
in 1,200 feet of powder drifts that
were driven across tbe bank from i
rim to rim. The explosion raised
the bank about twenty feet over an
area of four acres of ground, and
disintegrated about 2,000,000 cubic
yards of gravel. This ia probably
the largest bank blast ever exploded in a deep, gravel mine on the
Pacific coast. The mine has been
operated continuously since April
20, and the outlook is very favorable for a larger clean-up than any
secured during last season, which
itself was the best in the mine's
record to date.���Kamloops Sentinel.
This has been so far what is termed
in this section a wet season, it having rained at close intervals for the
past three weeks. Notwithstanding
it has been cool and sometimes cold
vegetation has made remarkable
growth, nnd the gathering of large,
luscious ripe trawberries has heen a
favorite pastime of many of our
townspeople who have "nothing else

Notes By The Way.
J. 8. Birnie ie now clerk  in the

-recorder for the Kettle river mining
���-division.	
H. C. Kuleen, of Victoria, has
'been appointed inspector of public
works and chief superii.tendent of
roads, streets and bridges for the
cprovince.	
By a rear-on collision on the
Delaware, Lackawanna & Western
'.Hy, a car of dynamite was exploded and five men were killed and
seven injured. Is there no remedy
for these rear-on collisions I They
certainly are due to carelessness.
Two of the McGill University
- mining etudents who came to the
"Boundary with the "Summer
^ School" recently have arranged to
work in the Mother Lode mine for
: a while, for the purpose of gaining
-practical experience.
Allan C. Stewart, of Vancouver,
| has been appointed school inspector
for East and Wept. Knntemiy, with
residence at Nelson. It is not stated whether the Boundary schools
-will be included in his district, aB
they were in that of Inspector Wm.
'Burns.
The Nelson Tribune claims that
the government has been outrageously swindled, in a small way,
by men who have been appointed
���to issue miners' liences, etc., on
commission. On the return to
Kootenay of Chief Inspector Goe-
pel a thorough investigation will
4)e had.    	
In connection with the prospect
of increased representation in the
Dominion parliament, the Vancouver News-Advertiser makes the following comment: In British Columbia the one change which we
may expect will be the transfer of
the Vancouver Island seat���now
allotted to Victoria���to a new
Mainland constituency that will
embrace a large section of West
Kootenay and Bonndary ccuntry.
The report is current that Mr.
Alexander Leamy, of New Westminster, the hatching place of many
successful candidates for the judiciary bench, is to be made county
judge of the Boundary district.
