International Music Hall
Week Commencing Monday, July 15.
London, July 31.—At tho meeting of tlie shareholders of the
Standard Exploration company
yesterday, one of the mining concerns known ns "The Whtitaker
Wright group," the official receiver
.made such astounding revelations
that he drew from the excited
shareholders demands for thc
lynching of the persons implicated.
The receiver said that the estimated assets were farcical. The
fourteen mines, valued at i'7117,000
has earned nothing. The company
started with a cash capital of £500-
000, but tlie directors took little
interest in the'company's mines
and devoted themselves to stock
exchange speculation. "And
that's where your money has
gone," said the receiver; "£228,000
was lost in differences in Lake
Erie speculation and £225,000
was lost in differences in Calidon-
ian copper. The tolal profits
from speculation are £88,000 and
the losses are £586,000."
After a few more such statements, which a shareholder said
would "stagger humanity," another share holder asked the receiver lo prevent the directors
from making away with their
property, as it was reported thev
were doing. "And they are still
at large," shouteal another shareholder., "Yes, they are," came
the answer and immediately those
present at the meeting rose to
their feet, shouting "lynch
them!"
It was and exciting moment for
Lord Pelham-Clinton, General
Gough-Hallhrope and others who
were attending the meeting. A
storm of an<rry cries was hissed,
but the receiver finally succeeded
in calming the shareholders by
promising them every possible pro-
lection.

Latest From Northport.
Northport, July 31.—i p. m.—
(Special to the World.)—Word
hag just been received here that
Manager Kadish came north this
morning as far as Marcus, but
hearing that there was a warrant
out for his arrest returned to Spokane on a south bound special.
The magistrate has fined some
man of the smelter employes
for carrying arms and resisting
the officers and the town is considerably quieter today.

Fl shlight to Be Used Between the Two Cities—
An Experiment.
Buffalo, N. V., July 31—In letters of light flashed across the sky
the citizens of Toronto will soon be
invited to attend tho Pan-American exposition. They will accept
the invitation with a reply flashed
to Buffalo across the black night
sky.'
George F. leaver,superintendent
of electrical exhibits at the Pan-
American, is making arrangements
to signal to Toronto with the big
searchlight on the electrical tower.
The signal will he answered from
a natural elevation back of Toron-
ta), 300 feet above the level of the
lake. Mr; Seaver is confident that
the experiment will be a success,
and lhat even at the great distance
it will be possible to read the message.
The other night, from the lop of
the lower, Mr. Seaver, in the presence of the electrical jury, carried
on a searchlight conversation with
Niagara Falls, for the purpose of
demonstrating ta> the members of
the jury the feasibility of sending
messages with searchlights.

THK CITY HAND.
At two o'clock this morning Constable Bradshaw noticed a glare in
the sky to the east of the city and
called the attention of the watchman on duty at the fire hall.
The men ascended the tower and
located the fire down near the city
park and away from any water
supply and no action was taken.
Shortly after this three young
men strolling home along Columbia avenue from the dance in
Miners' Union hall noticed the
blaze and promptly turned in an
alarm from box 51, at the corner
of Columbia avenue and Queen
street. The brigade responded
smartly and   on   arriving   on the
avenue there were explanations.
Afterwards the chief drove out past
the school house and d^wn Fourth
avenue to the edge of the road
from which point the fire could be
pretty plainly viewed, but as no
assistance could be rendered, the
men turned back.
The fire occurred in the residence
of Moffat, a gardener, who completed a $700 dwelling within the
year on a clearing near the City
Park, and to the north of the Commander mine. Mr. Moffat says
says the blaze must have started
from the kitchen stove as that was
the only fire about the place.
The dwelling and most of the contents was completely destroyed
Mr. and Mrs. Moffat being able to
save but very little. There was no
insurance, either on the building
or on the furniture or contents.

Kaslo, July 31.—N. J. Morrison,
a deck hand on the steamer Kaslo,
was swept from the guards of tho
boat at an early hour yesterday
morning while the boat was landing at the floating dock at Kaslo.
He was only partly awake having
been quickly aroused to throw
down the side guard and while doing so thc boat came alongside a
stand of piles some distance from
the shore and befell into the water.
As Morrison ' could not swim he
was in imminent danger. J. Hall,
of the Victoria house, threw off his
coat and plunging in off the end of
the wharf swam out and secured
Morrison just as he came up Ihe
second time. Hull managed to
bring him to to wharf when Morrison caught Hall around the neck
and went underneath the wharf
coining up on tha other side some
sixty feet uwny, Morrison unconscious aud Hall almost so. Mr.
McDonald, of the Kaslo, secured a
life preserver around Hall, hanging
head downwards from the wharf
while doing so, being held by several other men by the feet. Hall
heroically bung to Morrison, who
was, however, under waler, McDonuld managed to raise the two
men sufficiently for the men on tbe
wharf to grasp the ropes from the
life preserver when all three were
safely drawn up. Too much praise
cannot be given W. J. Hall for bis
intrepid conduct. Morrison and
Hall are both suffering severely
from tin' effects of the experience.

THE SMELTER'S LOSS.
The general manager 0! the Le
Roi Bmelter al Northport is concentrating nil his efforts, at the
present moment on'the crushing
mil of tin' smeltermen's union nt
tho smelter oily.
For over two months now the
lockout has heen in force and the
smelter has heen practically closed
down.
Number live furnace, it is true,
lias heen worked in a spasmodic
way, hul at what a cost! Commercially there has been nothing in
the working of the smelter plant
for the Le Hoi company since the
lockout commenced.
It is stated that every time a
partial freeze up takes place in
the smelter furnaces it costs the
company at least $500 clear loss
to put the matter right. But this is a
minimum loss only, and when the
freeze up is more pronounced the
loss mounts up quickly until it
■ readies a very high figure. Up to
Sunday morning the one furnancc
which the management have been
attempting to run has frozen up
eighteen times since May 2fi.
The direct total loss to the Le
company) caused by tlie action of
the management in attempting to
crush out unionism, during (he
past two months must he exceedingly heavy and the indirect loss
lo which tbe shareholdi'rs arc
subjected by Mr, Macdonald's insane polioy is likely to cause a
good deal of "company trouble''
in London when the situation is
properly understood.
As every one knows there was
no trouble at Northporl about
hours or wages but just a plainly
expressed determination on the
part of the management to break
uji the union at all costs.
Manager Macdonald has evidently determined not to be at all
particular as to what means he
employs to gain his end against
his former employes. His agents
have openly violated the law anal
have already resorted to most ini-
droper means to first obtain fresh
workers, and then to retain these
deceived and captured men upon
the smeller ground.
No effort lias been spared
to endeavor to get the union men
lo resort to violence and it is (ollie
great credit of President Shed and
his men tbat they have bo far refrained from doing anything further than simply invoking the aid
of the local authorities in suppressing the armed ludlies of the
smelter company.
Mr. Macdonald is setting us all
a (ine example of maintaining law
and order, and later on this phase
of tlie complication can be counted
Upon to come in to the game as nn
extremely useful adjunct.
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
With tin' editor in tbe chair and
the skeleton in the closet, it needs
but a tomb stone lo complete the
likeness' between the cemetery ami
tin* Miner ollice.
Had our friend Barney pCssejaed
one-half the annum! of wit that he
does grit, there would have been no
strike. One hour spent in trying
to gain the good will of the employes would have prevented one
hundred days of warfare.
A strenuous effort has been made
|o circulate (lie impression that
tin* strike was caused by a few agitators in the Miners' Union—whilst
the public know that it was caused
l>y agitators, still they will not
give currency to this report. They
recognize it to be a base counterfeit, the reverse side of the note
showing the water mark of the
Miner and the obverse bearing the
Impress of Bernard Macdonald.
The Posburgh murder trial,which
has just concluded at Pittsfield.
Mass., by the equittal of the accused, has attracted attention
throughout the continent. Miss
Fossburg, the daughter of a well-
to-do citizen of Pittsfield, was shot
in her own home. The family
said the deed was done by burglars. The polic.) entertained the
suspicion that there was a quarrel
between father and son, and that
in the course of it the young lady
waa shot by her brother. While
the prosecution adduced one or
two facts tbat seemed to call for
explanation, it signally failed to
establish its theory. The family
are certainly entitled to the public
sympathy. It was sad enough to
lose one of its members in soshock-
a manner without being also
subjected to the terrible accusation that has now been dissipated.

SCHOOL HOUSE
The City Council Meeting
Last Evening.
GOVERNMENT WON'T PAY OVER
City Pay Roll for July -Only Routine Business Transacted Last
Cvening.
all the aldermen and his worship
the mayor were present at the
weekly meeting of the council last
evening. Practically only routine
business was transacted and there
' was but little discussion. The
mayor, who is chairman of the
school board informed the counci
that the trustees had received the
following telegram during thc day
from the minister of education:
"Council of Kossland refuse to
accept money in connection with
new school. Department has
therefore decided to erect no build
ing this year. Don't let contract.
Am writing full particulars."
The council have already intimated to the government, their
position in the matter and no step
was taken last night to change tho
attitude already adopted.
What the council finally said,
was that they were willing to become trustees of the $10,000 grant
for the new school building provided they were allowed to approve
of the plans and have a reasonable
say in the construction. As the
city taxpayers would have to pay
any amount over the sum named
which the building may cost and
in any event will be called upon to
support and inaintatn the school
in the near fulnre the position
taken by thc council was a reasonable and proper one.
The finance committee's report
recommending the payment of
$2,311.30 was passed and approved.
Of the total the chief items were
salary pay roll for July $1,941.65
and West Kootenay Power aud
Light company $199.00.
Repairs were ordered to be made
to the bridge over Centre Star
gulch, and the King bylaw will be
submitted to the ratepayers on
August 20.

with their fellow-workmen. Those
who know the nature and details |
of mining will agree that one can
favor another a great deal when
thoroughly familiar with each
others ways of doing this or that
kind of work and knowing every
particular connected with it in and
about the place. The thanks from
the company in question for our
best united effort was first a rise in
the price of powder; second, notice
that they could not afford to pay the
price per foot agreed on and
must reduce it. Let me mention
too that those who introduced the
contract system into this camp assured us through the press and
otherwise, that they'did not intend
to reduce the wages hut to increase
it for those most efficient. Vet we
know now, and it is an Ulldis-
putable fact that wherever efficiency
has showed itself, it has always
been rewarded with a cut in the
pay.
Our esteemed friend, Mr. Henry
Krumb, imagines a terrible nightmare or outrage about lo overwhelm this camp. His vivid imagination has produced a fear that
that when a price is set on a contract the miners propose to make
it slay through hard and soft mud
and slush, through thick and thin,
evidently forgetting that we agreed
to do the work for so much less per
foot, whenever we encountered what
we call dyke rock and this agreement we certainly would and did
live up to. However, I assure you
that no ill-feeling exist on our part
knowing that a mine manager is
placed between the devil and the
deep sea. Suffice it to state the
case briefly, we simply refused
the proposition and intend to do
the next best. Get others to accept the offer if you can. We feel
confident that no interference outside of lawful moral suasion and
explanation to our fellow-workmen
of the situation was used, which i
you cannot deny to us any more
than we. can deny to you the privilege of inducing others to work
for you.
Yours witli good humored well
wishes.

To thc Citizens and Business Men of Rossland and Vicinity and to the General Public: ' '    r    "--.:■-.. . -   '
Tlie business and social interests of a community are so closely interwoven in a torn- .
munity like Rossland, that any dispute among the industrial elements forming the social ■
structure, is often more disastrous to the business or non-cornbattant class around' which j
the labor and capital elements revolve, than to the actual combattants themselves. Thus
both labor and capital are morally obligated to strive to adjiist'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 and 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.
We have given long and careful consideration to this .matter and" have reac-hed the
conclusion that the foundation of the trouble rests on the fact'that nearly one-half, of the
employees in the mines ot 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. Wre believe that it is to continue to enforce
this unjust scale of wages that so many annoying practices have been * introduced-tp under-

Editor Evening World.
Pear Sir:—Allow me tliroun'i
your valuable columns to answer
the statement made by Mr. Henry
Krumb in the Miner of the 30th
inst., concerning the new St. Elmo
contract affair. I desire to say
that the rock encountered during
June and July was not any easier
broken than at any time previous.
The increase in wages per diem can
only be credited to increased eflici-
oncy on the purl of those concerned
in the fulfillment of the contract,
iih it i» an acknowledged fact that men
lo better work when they get well
not only with their own
work in a particular place, but also
CLUB BARBER   SHOP.
I have again taken charge of the
Olub.barber shop and will ho glad
to see all my old customers hack
again. I wish my old miner
friends to call on Jack, cash or no
cash.
Jack Bluntish.

First.—An annoying system of espionage and blacklisting by which many of our
ablest members have been compelled to seek employment in other localities, although 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.qff 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. - ■--< .    ' '   'u   *
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 W^ages 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 cjue'stioir is fimtHy and satisfactorily settled. Then will this fair city enjoy the prosperity for whjch nature has so
evidently intended it.
For this result we ask the moral aid and support of the many diverse bodies making
he 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. ...
