MINERS' STRIKE
The Big Mines All Closed
Down.
TOWN IS ORDERLY AND QUIET
Board of Trade Committee's Letter
to the Union Today—The Worker on Le Roi's Big Dump-
The War Eagle-Centre Star management this morning posted up
the following notiee regarding pay
day—next Monday:
"In consequence of the labor involved in the preparation of the
pay roll for the months of June and
July the paymaster will not be prepared to pay on the loth of July.
All possible speed is being made by
the ollice staff, and the date of payment will be made known in a few
.lays."
There appears to be no good reason assigned why the mines in question could not pay the men for
June when these wages are due on
the loth of the present month and
later settle for the balance.
Two opinions were expressed to.
day about the move. Om- is that
the companies desire to spoil the
anion picnic on the Kith, and the
other lhat they fear the men may
lie inclined to leave town if they
are paid off on Monday and want
to keep them here in view of a
possible settlement.
VANCOUVER
SITUATION
Magistrate Russell Threatened by a Fisherman
with a Gun.
Vancouver, July 18.—While the
trial of Frank Rogers was being
heard ibis morning, Superintendent of Police llussey asked Magistrate Alexander for permission to
search everyone in court for concealed weapons. The request
caused a sensation in court. Thc
magistrate refused permission.
At noon today while Police Magistrate Russell was discussing the
strike situation with some fishermen one of the latter drew a revolver and threatened the magistrate,
The men escaped but is known and
the entire police force are out hunting for him.

Brussels, July 13.—(.ueen Marie
Henriette fell a victim to the extreme beat which prevailed yesterday.
Her majesty was playing croquet
in the grounds of her villa at .Spa,
when she was overcome and fell.
She was carried in doors and soon
recovered consciousness. Her majesty's physician, however, was
summoned to Spa to attend her.
IlofoHteiltlhe Irlgh.
The union has settled down to
the contest with the mine owners
upon a plainly stated issue and
they are anxious that men seeking
employment, many of whom constantly come in here from all over
the year round, should keep away
from this vicinity as it is anticipated that the struggle will undoubtedly last for some considerable length of time.
Up at the mines today some
men wore engaged in taking out
the machines and tools to prevent
their being injured by rust, tho
union having countenanced such
action. Otherwise no men were at
work except the pumpmen, tire-
men and engineers on main shafts
who remained temporarily as provided for by the union when the
strike was called.
The Board of Trade have handed in a lengthy communication to
the union committee questioning
the legality of the strike under the
terms of tbe  union's   constitution.
Tbe union committee have not
yet replied to the letter but will
probably refuse to discuss tlie
question.
One solitary man is at work on
the big second class ore dump of
the Le Roi upon which the Rank
of Montreal has a mortgage for
$150,000 and the strikers are puzzled whether the scab in question
is working for the bank or for
"Barney."
The action of the War Kagle and
Centre Star is delaying payment
of wages after Monday next is
noled in another column.
The unanimous action of all
the men, non union as well as union, in coming ami together
promptly is looked upon as a complete answer to the assertion that
there was any division in the
ranks of the workers.
It has been suggested lhat the
managers should dispense with the
services of the Pinkei tons and apply the money saved for the raise
asked for by the muckers.
The men are quiet and orderly
and (here lias been no disturbance
of an}' kind.

AGITATORS AND SUCH.
A good many very decent people
are afflicted with the pleasing delusion that union affairs generally
are conducted upon anything but
business lines. They don't seem to
think it possible for a union official
to legitimately earn a salary, and
accordingly point the finger of scorn
at all organized labor officers.
The "agitator" and tho walking
delegate generally come in for rather
more than their share of abuse.
That in every labor union there is
depicted a "little inner circle" of
wicked desperadoes whose chief
business in life is to stir up strife
and turmoil in order to justify their
employment, who live on the credulity of their fellow workmen in
luxury and idleness off the hard-
earned contributions of their fellows'. The rank and tile of labor
are always referred to in terms of
pitying compassion as "unfortunates," subject to the tyrannical
rule of the conspirators and agitators aforesaid.
To listen to the openly expressed
views of some of these eminently
respectable people one would imagine that labor unions as a rule
really enjoyed a strike and entered
into a life and death struggle of
this kind as easily and light lieart-
edly and with about as much consideration for all concerned as a
lol of school boys would start off
for a game of ball. It ii? true that
this method of thinking and speaking of unionism is slowly going out
of fashion as people get to understand better the true object and the
real working of the order, but ignorance aud prejudice die hard,
and in some uninformed quarters,
union officials arc still regarded as
very terrible and objectionable
persons.
It is a poor compliment to the intelligence of the average working
man that he should be credited
with being so easily hoodwinked
by this dreadful "inner circle ol
agitators" who, were they really in
existence, would be quickly wiped
off the face of the order—if not off
the earth—by the homy handed
sons of toil aforesaid.
People who picture unionism to
be almost anything but what it
really is should study the present
aspect of industrial politics more
carefully and they will quickly
learn that the pleasant little
fictions they have been harboring
have no existence and have long
ago been discarded by the real
student of modern union machinery.
The measured action of the Rossland Miners' Union in the case now
fairly before the public, their careful consultations and deliberations
and their total disregard of all outside issues, shown by their temperately stated case, must convince an
honest and on-looking public thai
it must look elsewhere than in the
ranks of labor for the real "agitators" and disturbers of the community's peace and prosperity.
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
if, as Secretary Labouchere says,
tho Lo Roi has $20,000,000 worth
of ore in sight in the mine and can
treat $7 ore at a profit—1500 tons
a day—the company should make
a struggle to even up the mucker's
pay.
The Rossland Board of Trade,
if it honestly desires to mediate at
at the present lime, should not allow a solicitor of the Le Roi company—who is a momber of the
committee—to  worry   them   over
technical points in .the constitution of the union. The union is
quite competent to attend to what
is strictly its own business.

What the Le Roi Company
Says of the Mine.
£4,000,000  NOW  IN SIGHT
Can Treat $7 Ore at Northport
Market Value offline Is Now
$20,000*090."
AT THE CHURCHES TOMORROW
The secretary of the Le Roi Mining company in London has been
interviewed on the 2ar>th of June
with reference to the figures supplied by him to the press which appeared in the columns of the Would
yesterday. The substance of the
interview is given hereunder:
"When you say that there ia in
sight £3,000,000 of ore are you
taking into consideration what has
been opened up since October?
"No. We were then only down
to the 900-foot level, nor had any
driving been done at this depth;
but we arc now down to the 1100
foot-level and over £4,000,000 is
now in sight.
"Our capital as you know is £1,-
000,000, in £5 shares, which now
stands at about three premium, so
that the total market value of the
mine is £1,600,000. "The ore in
sight, aB I have told you, amounts
"to £4,000,000 and the cost of working is well inside (50 per cent., so
that the remaining 40 per cent, is
clean profit. This 40 per cent
amounts to £1,000,000, so that the
market value of the mine is represented by the ore in sight alone,
without taking into consideration
the machinery, worth about £500,-
000, and the whole of the remaining possibilities of the mine.
'How much do you owe the bank
of Montreal ?
"Only £108,000, but this is more
'than covered by ore and matte in
transit. We can always get an advance up to 50 per cent, of our ore
in sight." The secretary added that
it was not likely that the smelter
strike would extend to the mine
The smelter, he said, would be able
to treat 1500 tons per day shortly,
and this would considerably reduce
the cost of treatment "indeed we
shall be able to treat $7 ore."
"What is the average value of
your ore now ?
"About £2, 12b7, but then as I
have told you we have heen treat
ing only low grade stuff."

An Important Boer  Capture Made.
TERRIFIC   HEAT IN ENGLAND
No  Agreement  Between   England
and France Over New Found-
land  Question.
London, July 13.—The Sun is
informed that President Schelk-
burger's wife has been captured
near W'alervaal colony and sent as
a prisoner of war to Pretoria. The
Sun's informant says the military
authorities attach great importance
to the capture.
The extreme beat which has prevailed bere fur the past few days
has been followed by terrific thunder storms in many parts of the
United Kingdom. Much damage-
has been done by lightning and the
torrenial fall of ruin, the streets in
some places being impassible.
Similar reports of thunder storms
have reached here from Berlin and
other places on the continent.
It now seems that there is small
probabilities of an agreement being
reached between France and Great
Britain over ihe Newfoundland
question. The negotiations have
not been broken off, but they have
progressed so little that Downing
street is inclined to regard them as
almost hopeless.

To thc Citizens and Business Men of Rossland and Vicinity and to the General Public .-
The business and social interests of a community are so closely interwoven in a community like Rossland, that any dispute among the industrial elements forming the social
structure, is often more disastrous to the business or non-combattant class around which
the labor and capital elements revolve, than to the actual combattrants themselves. Thus
both labor and capital are morally obligated to strive to adjust their disputes, to protect
the social structure of which they are separate parts.
For this reason this union deems it well to make a careful statement of all the reasons
leading us to precipitate this industrial strife at this time. Since the agreement between the
big corporations of Rossland atul Rossland Miners'Union in April, 1900, this city has apparently enjoyed industrial peace ; yet all who are conversant with the industrial affairs of
Rossland for the past fifteen months know there has been a secret warfare waged against
this Miners' Union, which has been nearly as destructive to the business interests of the
community as an open struggle between the two industrial forces, and worse in that there is
no apparent end to be seen.
Wc have given long and careful consideration to this matter and have reached the
conclusion that the foundation of the trouble rests on the fact that nearly one-half of the
employees in the mines of this community receive about 20 per cent less wages than the
same class of labor in surrounding camps, many of which camps have a lower grade of ore
and are less favorably situated than Rossland. We believe that it is to continue to enforce
this unjust scale of wages that so many annoying practices have been introduced to undermine the prestige of this Miners' Union of Rossland.
First.—An annoying system of espionage and blacklisting by which many of our
ablest members have been compelled to seek employment in other localities, althought of
unquestioned ability in their trade.
Second.—By revoking a time honored privilege of the Secretary being allowed to
solicit members among the non-union employees of the companies who might be off duty on
the premises of the companies, a privilege guaranteed us by the last half of Article 15 of
the agreement of April, 1900 ; thus preventing us from refilling our ranks depleted by loss
of members compelled to seek employment in other fields.
Third. By connection with bogus employment agencies seeking to flood the overcrowded labor market with cheap foreign labor.
Finally.—By the largest corporation in this vicinity openly seeking and striving to
crush a sister union at Northport, Wash.
We believe all these efforts are mainly to enforce this unjust scale of wages and to
prevent all efforts towards an increase. Therefore we have fully resolved that there can be
no industrial peace in Rossland and vicinity until this wage question is finally and satisfactorily settled. Then will this fair city enjoy the prosperity for which nature has so
evidently intended it.
For this result we ask the moral aid and support of the many diverse bodies making
the general public of this city.
Especially we ask your aid in maintaining order, without which we cannot succeed.  :
There can be no permanent settlement but a just settlement, and to this end we will
use all our power as an organization, and all-the assistance-of the Western Federation of
Miners.
We have right on our side and must surely win.

ROSSLAND MINERS' UNION No. 38, W. K. M.
