Tbe Rambler-Cariboo—-or to
give the company its proper name,
the Rambler Consolidated, has declared a dividend of one. cent a
share or $12,500.
The company was first incorporated in 1896 as the Rambler-Cariboo with a capital of $1,000,000 in
$1 dollar shares. In 1898 the capital was increased to $1,250,000
and the company re-incorporated
as the Rambler Consolidated.
The first dividend was paid in
March 1897, and up to the present
time four dividends have been
paid totalling $105,000. " The dividend of $12,500 now declared
makes the fifth, and the total paid
to date $117,500.
J. B. McArthur was chief holder
of tlie stock in tlie first interest but
has parted with the most of liiB

The property is a silver-lead
proposition and consists of five
claims near Mctluigan station in
the Slocan district. The stock is
now quoted around 50 cents.
At the annual meeting of the
shareholders at Kaslo B. C, the
board of directors were elected . as
follows: A. F\ McLaine, president; J. J. Humphreys, vice president, and \V. II. Adams, secretary,
treasurer and manager, and Bernard Macdonald, Alfred Coolidge,
C. J. Knapps and J. D. Chaplin.
Mr.     McLaine    said    recently:
"We resent the report that has
been circulated that the stock of
Rambler-Cariboo has seen more
manipulation than any other on
lhe local market with the imputation that the shareholders were
being jobbed by the management.
No member of the management
has ever bought or sold any contracts for the stock. We have
always held to our opinion that
the mine is worth a great deal
more than the stock was -selling
for."

working class, and it divides society into two hostile classes—the
capitalists and the wage workerB.
It advocates as "immediate demands" public ownership of all
means of transportation, communication and other public utilities, as well as all industries controlled by monopolies, trusts and
combineB; the reduction of hours
of labor; state or national insurance of working people; the inauguration of* a system of public

Pittsburg, Aug. 2.—The Amalgamated executive board last evening
received by telegraph a flat refusal
from J. Pierpont Morgan to reopen the wage conference where it
was broken off at the Hotel Lincoln nearly three weeks ago.
A member of the executive board
of the association last night said;
"These terms are denominated by
those who have the best interests

THK LATEST MOVE.
After breaking the law vigorously in Northport and elsewhere, and
after heing heavily fined and punished for so aloing, the management
of the Le Hoi sn.elter has consistently applied to the United States
courts for an injunction against
the Smeltermen's Union.
It used to be a maxim in the
courts that an applicant for justice
at the hands of the judges must
come into court "with clean hands"
if he desired relief and the assistance of the law of the land.
It is clear that if the maxim
quoted had been applied
when tlie exparte injunction was
asked for by the Le Roi company.
The court must "have refused. the
sweeping order granted.
Government hy injunction in the
great, glorious, and free Republic
to the south has been coming into
fashion of late and wo have now a
sample of justice controlled by
corporations and meted out to "the
people."
The Le Roi Shy lock is by law
is entitled to his pound of flesh.
The law allows it and the courts
award it, but the move should dis-
ipate whatever remains of public
sympathy with the company's fight
against unionism.
In Canada we have at least some
protection under the law and when
the time comes that protection
nhist be invoked if the slightest
evasion or infringement of the law
is attempted by the Le Roi management.
The result of the injunction proceedings in the United States court
will make the fight now in progress
all tbe moro hitter and prolonged. Manager Macdonald is
fighting for his official life and
will evidently hesitate at nothing
to gain his point unleSB—unless
his shareholders stop him.
If the manager has been busy in
the courts, the union has not been
idle in tho country. From far off
Duluth, Minn., the news camo yes-
.terday that 80 workers, who bad
been induced to come west and help
out the poverty stricken Le Roi
smelter, by the same falBe statements used at Leadville, were successfully appealed to en route hy
union agents, and every man of
the party left the special train and
went to work in the harvest fields.
As the true fuels of the case he-
como better known throughout the
states it will become more and
more difficult, if not impossible, to
ahtain men for the smelter, as only
the most despicable of the scab
element will consent to assist in
this struggle against the right of a
union to exist.

whose oratory was music to his
audience, hated muBic. Charles
James Fox, another great orator;
Daniel O'Connell, still another;
William Pitt, a third; Robert Peel,

NOTKS AND COMMENTS.
Every day the Btrike continues
unionists will have a better causo
for learning who are its enemies
and who are ils supporters. So far
public opinion ie strongly against
Bernard Macdonald and his allies,
and judging by recent events it is
not likely to turn away from thc
men at any Stage of the game.
It is said that KdiBon despises
music and lhat Nikola Tesla is
peculiarly averse to its charms.
That iB a strange freak. Many believe that a person who docs not
love music has no soul. But some
of tho acknowledged geniuses of
history, among them true po'.ts,
could not bear the sound oi the
sweetest melody. Byron bad no
ear for music, and neither vocal
nor   instrumental afford him the
The recent hot wave with its
hundreds of deaths and thousands
of prostrations has been more disastrous in its effort than any epidemic that has visited the country.
Cholera, yellow fever, smallpox,
each have claimed hundreds of
victims, but not within tho space
of so few days. The direct fatalities have heen enormous, bnt the
scourge cannot be judged by these
alone, the increase in the number
of deaths from other cau ses must
also be attributed to the exoessivo
heat, fatal in its results on a system enfeebled by disease. In the
future hundreds of those prostrated
who escaped immediate death will
succumb to comparatively mild
attacks of disease and thus the
mortality will go on for months.

Was the Whistle Bought   at Too
High a Price? -Wage Farriers
the Sufferers,
Referring to Iho wail of some of
the disgruntled mine managers as
set forth in the petition to the Dominion government, the Victoria
Times says:
"The residents of the province
aro worthy of as much consideration as the capitalists who live
out of it. If the wealth of the
country cannot pay for the means
necessary to its extraction it might
as well remain where it is; if it
cannot afford fair wages lo the
workmen who are spending their
lives in the exploitation, if it be
necessary to engage Orientals and
fill our province up with an inferior class of people in order that
Capital shall receive dividends upon investment, the treasure might
as well remain in the custody of
the rocks which at present guard
it. The eight-hour law was'en-
aoted ahead of its time, perhaps.
It was passed through the House
without proper discussion and
brought into force without sullieient
notice. But it is law and there
never will arise a legislature with
tlie courage necessary to repeal it.
No doubt there are other grievances
and it may be that the government
will be able to redress some of the
inequalities complained of. It will
not he forgotten that there are
times when certain niiu.-s were
earning large dividends.
They were sold, and under tho
new management came at change.
Was the whistle bought It too large
a price or .was. t«!ii' capital .bag unduly distiMided by means of water
or wind? The mining men have
no right lo blame the laws of the
province if through the instrumentality of promoters they have been
induced to pay loo high a price for
their properties, nor have they
been disoreet in issuing such a
memorial if il should prove true
that extravagant inflation is at the
bottom nf tlie failure to earn dividends."

To the Citizens and Business Men of Rossland and Vicinity and lo lhe General Public i
The business and social interests of a community are so closely interwoven in a community like Rossland, that any dispute among tlie 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 combattanls 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 welJ 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 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. \\re 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, 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 off duty on
the premises of the companies, a privilege guaranteed us by the hast half of Article 15 of
thc 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 thc 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
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.
EXECUTIVE BOARD
ROSSLAND MINERS' UNION No. 38, W. F. M
