SHAMROCK II
ON HER WAY
An Enthusiastic Send-Off
—Thousands Cheer the
Challenger.
Qounock, Scotland, July 29.—
The Shamrock II. accompanied by
the Erin sailed on Saturday morning for New York. Great enthusiasm was displayed as the Challenger departed.
Capt. Sycamore desired to go out
under canvas and he was favored
with a slight easterly wind, sufficient to keep the flags streaming in
the direction they each had to sail.
She cut a strange figure with her
Stunted spars and scant canvas as
she lay ready to start. At 10
o'clock Sir Thomas Lipton and Mr.
Watson boarded her and a few
minutes later her moorings were
slipped, her head sails broken oul
and the Shamrock II. slipped away
on her voyage across  the Atlantic.
Thousands gathered along the
shore and peers greeted her departure with great outbursts of
cheering. Hals and handkerchiefs
were waved, guns saluted and
whistles shrieked. For miles along
shores crowds occupied every vantage point. Sir Thomas Lipton remained aboard the Challenger until she was off Cumbrae, when he
returned on a tug. Before leaving,
he addressed the crew, thanking
them for what they had done, and
wishing them Godspeed on their
voyage and a successful finish to
their task. He said they had the
best boat it was possible to provide
for them, and that Mr. Watson had
dune his part well, partly fur love
of his profession and partly for
love of the old Hag the boat was to
represent. They bad a stiff light
before them, continued Sir Thomas,
but those they were lo meet wire
generous.
SPREAD OF
THE STRIKE
A Serious Move from an
Unexpected Quarter-
Complete Shutdown.
1'iltslmrg, July 29.—The Post
says:
A serious spread of the steel
strike is now threatened in an unexpected quarter. From the sheet
steel, hoop and tin mill, the contest is expected to reach out into
the furnaces in the Mahoning and
Shenandoah valleys and oauao a
Complete      shut-down      nf       these
plants. It will throw many hundreds out of employment and curtail the produbtion of raw material as well as thc finished lines.

(Special to the World )
Northport, July 29.—Yesterday
and today have seen exciting times
in the Smelter City.
Early on Sunday morning about
•I o'clock a special train from Spo
kane having some thirty scabs
from Leadville on board, arrived at
tbe smelter. The union was well
informed about the party's movement from the time they set out
from Leadville, and an effort was
made to talk to the men on their
arrival in Spokane. The scabs,
however, were well guarded by a
posse of armed men led by a man
who declared he was a United
States marshal! and who promptly
pulled his gun and called on his
armed assistants to do the same,
when the union agent approached
the gang. Tho man produced a
marshall's badge and the union
agent not wanting a row desisted
taking further action.
The whole town of Northport was
up and about all Saturday night
fearing trouble when the train arrived, and when it did pull in an
armed band led by Superintendent
Kadish came down from the
smeller.
Kadish and his men displayed
their weapons openly and did their
best to coax the onlooking union
men into a scrap, but without
avail. Several of the new arrivals
refused to go in the smelter stockade and during the day some of
the last arrivals sneaked away.
This morning while tlie preliminary examination of Reade and
Cook before Justice Travice was
proceeding, four armed men with
Winchesters and revolvers made
their appearance in the court room.
An application was made to dis
arm the men but they gut outside
before anything was done. A little
later the four were arrested by a
deputy who confiscated their
weapons and locked the gang up
for safe keeping.
Warrants have been issued for
tbe arrest of Manager Radish and
all the men who appeared with
guns yesterday. The authorities
are determined to stop tin- practice
at all costs and many arrests will
be made shortly.
The striking   union   men are all
11 nan I,  and    the   man   who has
been posing as a marshal] and
pointing his gun at all-comers is
only a smeller agent. He is sure
lo be punished heavily.
The preliminary trial of Reade
and Cook has been in progress all
day nnd will probably last for
some time as there are many witnesses to examine. The defence
claim they can prove their complete innocence of the crime
charged.

A LONE HAND.
It is quite possible that Bernard
Maodonald is a very much misunderstood mini, manager ami
that he has Bimply carried out
"instructions from London" or it
may he he is very much concerned
in a conspiracy the details of which
have not yet appeared in print.
In any ease the manager must
ho hard pressed indeed when he
finds it either advisable or necessary to proclaim so loudly that
ho is quite sure of his own position with his London directors
as he did in his paper yesterday.
For a moment just trace the
order of events sinco January
last and understand what we are
coming to—a little later. The
position of the four mines and the
smelter at Northport, at the opening of the year is pretty fairly
well known and understood here
and need not he gone into again.
When the crash came in the old
country, first of thc London and
Globe, and subsequently of the
British America Corporation every
one here was anxious to know how
the mines and the smelter would
he affected, and the English papers
were closely read in order to ascertain what was likely to happen.
Hut Whitaker Wright and his
friends and foes on the English
stock exchange were so busy lighting each other lhat so far as oul
siders could judge it became
evident that the Hossland
and Northport properties, provided they could get along, would
not he interfered with until Somi
combination—Whitaker Wright or
some other—Sufficiently controlled
the situation In make a definite
move. For some months a contest
has gone on of which the public
here    kiiuws     little     or nothing.
All this lime, however, at least
one man has heen in practically
absolute control here. One man
in control of the Le [toi, Russiam'
Great Western, Le Hoi No. _.
Kootenay mines and the North-
port smeller plant—a oombinu'ion
representing a huge capitalization
with simply enormous possibilities. What has really happened
in the inner circle of this combination, which among other things
has produced the lookout ai
Northport and the Btrikehere?
So far as Rossland is now concerned tin* first outward move wu?
maih _early in May when, as Mr.
Heinze now tells us, the control of
the Miner was obtained—obtained
as we all have since Learned hy
Bernard Macdonald. Why? Why
did the manager want lhe paper—
certainly nol as a commercial
underdaking—the mere suggestion
causes a smile. He was not being
attacked in any way—why than
should Mr. Macdonald aspire tn
become ediior in chief of the Rossland's morning paper. The attack
made on the government at Vic
toria can safely he regarded as n
blind for the real purpose Mr.
Macdonald has no particular hive
for governments, provincial or
dominion, hut his dislike of
both was not strong enough to
make him buy a newspaper for the
purpose of abusing them.
Prom the moment Mr. Macdonald controlled the Rossland Miner
the paper became s rabid antiunion publication and ils columns
have been filled with jusl thai
class of matter which is supposed
to "show up" organized labor in the
most unfavorable light.
We were all warned of the unholy combinations of foreign ugi-
tators which exist in our midst and
nf whoso existance we had all
somehow not known until Barney
grasped the editorial pen. Day
after day tirades against unionism
in all its forms appeared in the
miner columns in  various shapes.
The closing down of the North-
port smelter, the official declaration that no labor troubles existed
at Northport, followed quickly by
the equally official declaration to
the smeltermen—"we will break
up your union at all cost; if you
want work you must abandon your
union we will have none of it," the
protestations of good faith to the
miners here if they would only
wait until the Northport union
was smothered and notifications
begging men to remain at work
and not to mind the agitator, foreign or domestic and lhe linal acts
of this pleasing drama—ortritgcdy,
are they not all well known and
understood hy us all now?
And yet this one man—this able
and discreet manager, this honest
and uncorruptible man controlled
the situation here alone !
Mr. Macdonald now pleads that
his character is being assassinated
—in England and elsewhere. Does
the manager really ask us to believe that be has any character left
which is worth assassinating ?
The public are not privileged to
to know Mr. Macdonald's real position they can only judge him from
his own acts as disclosed by his
own newspaper, and looking back
iluring the past few weeks it is
quite impossible to follow the manager's actions and in any way
credited him wilh good faith. If
with his immediate record fresh
before the onlooking public, Mr.
Macdonald wishes anyone to think
him an injured and misrepresented man, his clear cause is easy.
Let him tell us the whole story of
how it all happened and when we
have his story we can better say
if any mistake have been made.
Cables from England at the
moment may give Mr. Macdonald
some comfort of a kind, but bo
must excuse the onlookers if they
refuse lo seriously regard his efforts
at the moment.

Mr. Jolly Knowalls sends us ;t
letter for publication tliis afternoon.
It is very interesting. What the
author has to say will enable those
who read the communication to estimate without much trouble the
exact amount of reliance which
may be placed upon the statements
that the Miner has changed hands
and that Mr. Jas. Wilks will supersede Mr. C. A. Gregg as president
and managing editor of the paper,
and is to settle the newsboys strike.
Such yarns are on a par with
rumors so frequently circulated
from time to lime, tbat tbe B. A. C.
has gone fluey, and that Le Roi
shares have been manipulated.
Messrs. Macdonald and Kirby
sent the Executive Hoard of the
Miners' Onion on Saturday a
formal letter staling tbat the directors of the companies owning the
I.e Roi group and the War Eagle-
CcnUc Slar mines, were unable to
comply with tbe demands of the

ctl for and merely leaves theiniitler

The other afternoon a party of
fishermen from Nelson went lisb-
ing ill the vicinity of Heaslcy's siding. They took out with them a
quantity of "tanglefoot," with the
result that a man who has a shack
and a ranch at that point took nn
a larger shipment of the lire water
than was good for him. After the
fishermen bad departed the ranchman, in his semi-insensible condition, attempted to cross the river
in his row boat, which was on the
beach near his ranch. This point
is only about two miles from Bonnington Falls, and the water runs
al a pretty rapid rate. On boarding the boat he threw himself
across it in such a manner as to
indicate that he had fallen, as his
head was banging over one side of
the boat and bis feet over tho other.
in this position he floated out into
the stream. When the attention
of .lohn Keys, who lives on the
other side of the river, was directed to the awful situation in which
the man was placed, he immediately rowed out to tbe rescue. All
the time he was nearing the rapids and every moment was precious.
With an energy only born of such
emergencies, he reached the boat
in which tbe helpless man was
hastening to destruction. By some
means Keys managed to secure tbe
painter of the ranchman's boat,
and, nlacing his foot on the end of
it, pulled for the shore with all the
energy of despair, and at the risk
of his own life. Had an oar broken
or anything else gone wrong both
of them would have been lost over
the rapids. For two straight hours
he rowed for all he was worth. For
a long time lie appeared to make
no progress. But with a commendable energy be persevered in
his self-appointed task, and finally
Buoceeded in reaching the shore.
All this time the rescued one was
utterly insensible. Indeed, it was
not until the following morning
that he was in tho least aware of
the close call that both himself and
his gallant neighbor had experienced the previous day.

To the Citizens and Business Men of Rossland and Vicinity and to the General Public 1 .'
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 tlie business or non-combattant class around which
the labor and capital elements revolve, than to the actual combattants themselves. Thus
botli 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 and Rossland Miners' Union in April, 1900, this city has apparently enjoyed industrial peact;; yet all who are conversant with the industrial affairs of
Rossland for the past fifteen months know there has been a secret warfare waged agaijnst
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 thera is
no apparent end to be seen.
We have given long and careful consideration to this matter and have reachttd 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 fhei
same class of labor in surrounding camps, many of which camps have a lower grade of Orel
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 under-|
mine the prestige of this Miners' Union of Rossland.
First.—An annoying system of espionage and blacklisting by which many of ouij
ablest members have been compelled to seek employment in other localities, although o;|
unquestioned ability in their trade.
Second.— By revoking a time honored privilege of the Secretary being allowed ti]
solicit members among the non-union employees of the companies who might be off duty oil
the premises of the companies, a privilege guaranteed us by the last half of Article 15 oil
the agreement of April, 1900; thus preventing us from refilling our ranks depleted by los^
of members compelled to seek employment in other fields.
Third.—By connection with bogus employment agencies seeking to flood the overj
crowded labor market with cheap foreign labor.
• •••' >,
Finally.—By the largest corporation in this vicinity openly seeking and striving t|
crush a sister union at Northport, Wash. ,
We believe all these efforts are mainly to enforce this unjust scale of wages andtj
prevent all efforts towards an increase. Therefore we have fully resolved that .there can bl
no industrial peace in Rossland and vicinity until this wage question is finally and satii
factorally settled. Then will this fair city enjoy the prosperity for which nature has ^|
evidently intended it.
For this result we ask the moral aid and support of the many diverse bodies makir|
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 w:l
use all our power as an organization, and all the assistance of the Western Federation <|
Miners.
We have right on our side and must surely win.   .
