The Strikers Issue a Statement
Which They Qaim a Low
Average Wage.
Ami still the coal strike remains the
same. Labor Commissioner King ia on
tbe gromid In vest (gating the situation
but Manager Tonkin has been at Die
roast the past two weeks, and there has
been no chance for the two sides to get
together. I'rayers and petitions are
issuing from all over Briijsh Columbia
asking that tbe diilirulty be settled, but
ai the present time there is nothing to
indicate an early adjustment. Business
is being injured, smelters and mines are
being closed down, and what promised
to he a good year may be turned into
disaster. Tbe people want a settlement
uo matter which Bide Is lo blame. Too
murb dependi upon the coal and coke
supply to permit of a prolonged strike.
Ii is a good chance for the government
to take a band,

Organized Last Week at Victoria Amid
Much Enthnsiasm.
Deny Tbat Tbey Qet (Iood Wages.
Tbe press committee have a communication in last week's Fernie Prets lhat
contradicts Manager Tonkin's statement
of wages paid, although ihey fail lo
make a general average, but tarn* only a
few cares. Here are some of their
J. Ballusky worked iS sfalf s, earning
(17320. He bad the following back-

j. Tei-nan 7 days (S 82.50.....    17 50
Total for backhand labor 8100 00
Now this man bad nothing stopped nut
of hlssarniuga to pay these men. Had
their earnings been deducted from his
net earnings there would have been a
remainder of $73 2o for bis tS shifts instead of 8173.20 as given by the company
due bill.
Wm. Murray worked 20 shifts, earning
1143.65, Now S51 30 of ibis amount is
given bs consideration for which nothing
is shown. He employed thtee backhand*, far 20 days each at 82.50 per day
making a total for bn.cU1.1ul labor.
Take $150 from $143-65 and poar Murray
is iu debt to tte backhands to the
amount of $b 35 alter working 2a days
I >r nothing Hut tbis would not do to
put liefore the public so the company
generously deduct 833 20 to pay for 60
days work instead ol 8150 For what
pmpose ihis is done we cannot tell.
Phil Christopher 16 shifts:

To 13'*, yds, entry ($ tfa per yd  26 65
To 3 days company work @ 83     9 00
Total earning 880.25
Tbe company give a total $102.85
What is that $22 givsu Christopher for''
Again tbe company deducts S39.0 1 for
hick baud labor Instead of (Km. Why
was not the full backhand earnings
slopped from Christopher? £60 from
880.H5 leaves $10 85, pay 50 cents for
minliing leave* $2035 Tot 16 shifts, or
au average of ft 27 per shift—a magnificent sum for (he dangerous occupation
of coal miner.
John Spnk worked nine days in No. 3
mine earning 82040. $2250 the company deducted for hackbaiid labor .10 for
ihc privilege of working for the Crows
Nest Pass Coal company nine days be
paid them $210. In fact to pay these
backhands tlieir proper days compensation be started on company work in
preference to digging coal.
Tha itsti incuts pre ve conclusively
thai tbe net earnings do not show all
reasonable deductions since In many
caaes uo backhand labor is deducted at
all. O.i the point of wages ws believe
the contract men bave just room for
kicking, aod we cannot see how we materially weaken our cause by raising
this question. Tbe miners at Morrlssey
under ibe objectionable rate for tbe rea
sans shown. No greedy coal miner expects s larger average than' $4 50 for
eight hours work. As long as thc management igtore the union and refuse
their officers audience misunderstandings
will never he cleared up. The secretary
of Gladstone Union and also of tbe District board haa asked lime after time
for an audience and were invariably refused.
Mr. Dougherty bas not satisfied himself As to tbe accuracy of tbe net earn
Iniriin the company's book because he
was deceived as the public were by Mr.
Tonkin's figures iu your last issue. Tbe
union officials however have not been
idle for the past week. Witb much labor
the January statements have been collected in the three camps and In order
to save Bpace Ihe results bave been
b il'ed down. The officials of the union
will take an affidavit ia to their accuracy
before Mr. Tonkin himself. Again you
seen to believe tbat only conttact mln*
era are kicking about wages. Thia ia
not the case, but all company men, all

When in Nelson last week C. B. Mc-
1'iierson, general passenger agent ol the
C-mad I a 11   I'ni ifr.   .-.CMU-rn   lines,  gave
some Information regarding tbe situation
in   Manitoba   and  ibe Territories mat
will serve as an eye opetfer to residents
of lhe Kootenays who have not grasped
lhe   real situation.    He  is  reported as
Baying that lu Manitoba and the Territories along branch lines the train service would probably be doubled. That
Is, where a trl weekly service was iu
force row a dally service would he commenced next month and maintain for at
least some time to come. This change
was made imperative by the enormous
Influx of settlers this year. Tills first
lot m come were already commencing
to arrive. They were almost entirely
Americans, well used to the conditions
tbey would meet and quite capable of
taking care of themselves. When he
left Winnipeg arrangements bad been
completed to handle a largo batch of
first comers, and it would take about
3000 cars to bring tbem and thfir (.fleets
Orders had already been issued to
give lumber shippers Into lhe Territories from British Columbia ami from the
east preference as far as possible, and a
large amount was now being rushed in.
This was necessary in order to provide
dwellings for tbe new settlers and shelter
their stock.
"I do not think," said Mr. McPher-
son, '-that your lumbermen (tan commence to supply lhe demand for lumber.
I kuow tbat many mills have starlet) up
in this section, hut I doubt if the men
in tbe business realize what a demand
there will he this summer. Uuder tbe
circumstances prices are sure to be high
and as quickly as the lumber is shipped
in it will be snapped up. There is, of
course, 110 timber in iheTerritoiies and
pmctically no large amount of lumber
on bun.1, bo that no matter how large
your cut may he this year there will be
no difficulty of disposing ol it, to say
nothing of your home consumption,
which, I understand, will be very good
this year."
Many shrewd residents of the Kootenays have ulreudy foreseen the enormous
demand far lumber that mould naturally
result from ihe influx of settlers to Ihe
Praiiie province and the Territories, aud
large areas of timber lands have been
picked up as the result, In several instances their forethought has bad its reward in sales to milling companies.
Undc existing conditions it is not surprising that land cariying good limber
is in great ilumatid, and Uie values are
using with a rapidity lhat is only (quailed by the magnitude of the market afforded for the product, Tbe question
of freight rates iIojs not enter Into the
matter seriously, as a figure is realized
for finished lumber that gives the milling concei 11 a handsome profit, A few
yeats of such progress in tlie Territories will see several lumber millionaires
envolved in tbe Kooteuays, uud many
more or less substantial fortunes establish oil.
Many Matters Discussed and Important   Resolutions  Are
The Mackenzie!.
The programme for next Monday's
entertainment in Wentworlh ball is of a
more than ordinary character. In addition to the usual fintclass selection of
songs, duets and recitals provided by
these popular artists an exquisiie do-
mestic drama, 'The Open Gate." will be
staged in a thoroughly complete manner.   The characters are:
Aunt Hettie Miss Jessie Glover

New scenery bas lieen specially painted for Ibis piece. The laughter provoking comedy. "The Pair of Lunatics,"
will afford plenty of fun without vulgar

a more diversified and yet refined entertainment, M'f. W. T. Reid has kindly
consented to act as accompanist. Tbe
plan of seals is at B;attie's drug store.

Tbe British Columbia Mining association has been formed by the largest
gatbeilng of delegates ever assembled
at one time in this province. John Keen
of Kaslo was elected president; J. I).
Hobson, Cariboo, first vice-president; I).
W. Higgins. Victoria, second vice-president; A. U Ilelyea, Victoria, secretary,
and A. B. Fraser, .Victoria, treasurer.
An executive consisting of 15 representative mining men from all parts of tbe
province was also appointed. The following amendment relating to capital
and labor was adopted:
This association thall be non-political
and shall not permit discission in any
of its conventions or meetings, of social
piolilems; nor shall it interfere in uny
way with Inbor unions, prov'ded, however, that tbe association shall be at
liberty to use Ita good offices in adjusting nnd settling mining labor d.fficul-
A resolution to petition the government to amend the boiler inspection net
now in force, it being claimed that it
waa severe in its provisions, and costly
in enforcement was passed.
The following resolution was adopted:
Resolved, that the government of British Columbia be hereby requested to
forthwith appoint a commission of three
m 111 hers, whose duty it shall be to examine ss hilly as possible int *> lhe existing relations of employer and employe
engaged iu the mining industry in tin's
province and to gather data on the
questions of capital and lahor therein
employed; said commission to meantime
he regarded as a conciliation board iu
any mining labor troubles that may occur, witb a view to the settlement and
prevention of sucb trade disturbances.
Premier Prior was present and announced tbat the government would pay
the expenses of a commit- i Jti, named by
the convention, to proceed lo Fernie
and endeavor to settle tbe coal miners'
stiike. Later the convention appointed
a committee consisting of Messrs.
Gmmce, Greenwood; Reefer, Greenwood, and Flumerfelt, Grand Forks,
representatives of capital; and Seaman,
Rossland; Mc Andrews, Kaslo, and Chris
Foley, Vancouver, representatives of labor, together witb Chairman Keen, to
proceed at once to Fernie and attempt
lo settle the strike, the association to
pay ull expenses.
President Keen made a dramatic
stroke of diplomacy shortly after the reassembling on the last dsy when, after
referring to the difficulty of dealing at a
long distance with n matter like tbe
Crows Nest strike be asked General
Manager Tonkin, wbo was in tbe audience, if be would acccept the manly
and honest mediation of the conciliation
committee. Mr. Tonkin, amid loud applause, cordially accepted their good offices and off-red to Bhow them every
even to opening the company's hooks.
A motion was passed urging the government to resist the claim of the Canadian Pacific railway to the coal and petroleum lands of Soulh F.ast Kootenay
and to open tbe reserve on thoae lands
as well as on those of Graham Islam),
Another resolution asked ihe dominion government to open up their 5o,ooo
acre reserve of coal laud iu tbe Crows
Nest Pass.
The choice of the convention's meeting place for next year was left to tbe
representatives from the interior, the
Vancouver delegates saying t hey were
willing to abide by whatever tbe up
country members decided. Vlcioiu was
unanimously .selected.
The prediction made in last week's

peiiiitfiiileui Jamieson to ihe position of

lienifqaarters at Calgary, has been full-
tilled, The new division baa been formed, and he will liuve charge, which is a
material advHiii-eiuent from bis present

P. K. Mr. and Mrs. Jamieson returned
last Saturday from Winnipeg, and Mr.
Jamieson confirmed the minor afloat re-
guiding the change.
The date for .installing the work
of lhe new division is set for April I, but
it will be necessary for Mr. Jamiesou to
visit Calgary once or twice In the meantime to supervise the organization of the
offices and force. Ills successor here
will be J. G. Taylor, formerly chief dispatcher at tbis point and at one lime
agent at I-;lko. Mr. Taylor ia uow
superintendent at Brandon, and is expected here iu about two weeks.
The departure ol Mr. Jamiesou and
family will give rise to universal regret
iu the business and social circle* of
Cranhrook. Although they have been
residents of thin town only eleven
mouths, yet in tbat brief period tbey
have established themselves in the
hearts ot the people in such a way tbat
their departure will be keenly felt.
Mr. Taylor, who will follow Mr
Jamieson here, is well kuowu in Craubrook, and both be and Mrs. Taylor
will tcceive a moat cordial welcome.
The fact that the Taylors «re coming
tends in a way to soften tbe disappointment caused hy the loss of the Jamie-

location for handling the immense quantity of logs gotten out thiB winter.
Among oilier important improvements
which will be made when the mill is

The Cranbrook Board of Trade, feeling thut it was incumbent upon that
body to show the high esteem iu which
Mi. Jamieson was held by lhe business

been appointed as acting master mechanic with headquarters at Calgary-
He takes the place of J. Csrdeii who

The News Advertiser says that the
Diiusntuii Prior administration has added 50 per cent, to the funded debt; imposed Dew and increased existing imposts, so that the burden of taxation
has doubled; pledged the province to
find millions of do'lars to enrich railwaj
promoters; granted concessions foi
hundreds of square miles pulp timber to
gratify political supporters or bribe political opponents, and yet been finable to
provide for the carrying out of needful
public works. Appropriations voted
three years ago have not been carried
out because the money provided foi
them has been diverted to other purposes. Vet tbe burden of salaries and
payments have been made still heavier
for the patient hut harraased taxpayer.

were named ai delegates, and James
Ryan and F. K Simpson as alternates.
The Craubrook board did not present

The other resolutions already presented are as follows:
By Kaslo:
"Whereas, there has been a noticeable diminution lo the supply of fish iu
the Streams and lakes of Southern British Columbia; and

Under the new law the old Fort
Steele district will be divided, and this
portion, Including the towns of Fort
Steele, Warincr, Moyie, Mirysvllle,

district. And. It will be a warm ti^ht
In tbls district, based on party Hues.
Although several names have been mentioned, yet nothing has been iletlnl ely
decided as to who will be the candidates. Tbere are good men in boili
parties living In Cranbrook who would
make first-class representatives, but all
of them display strong ilitHdeucc wheu
spoken to lu a political way. Dr. Ktog
aod It. K. Beat tie have been mentioned
on the Liberal side, but both bave positively declared that they will not be
candidates. The Conservatives have
two or three in line, but are making nt
puhlic declarations yet. ,1. A Ilirvuy
of Fort Steele, has been named as one
who desires the nomination, but his
name fails to arouse any enthusiasm at-
mauy claim that he wou.il prove a weak
candidate, and would be ea-dly slaughtered. It will not be long before senti
ment will be forming, and then there
will be no lack of candidates, or cause

"tha old religion," which rests on the
belief lhat men are able to control the

mythology of tbelr own, In which tiie
transcendentalism of the mystic Is
blended with the Teutonic fairy tale
and Its oriental coloring, while their

high degree of prophetic illumination.
Indeed une of the Hungarian tribes declares Itself to be descended from fairies who carried off mortal girls aud
