■ Nelson, July 22.—Donald J.
Beaton, editor of the Nelson
Miner, died last evening at the
residence of John Horton on Stanley street as the result of injuries
received by being thrown off one
of the Nelson tramway company's
cars on Stanley street.
Mr. Beaton has spent a short
time yesterday afternoon at the
residence of D. A. McParland and
on the return journey decided to
take the car down town. He
boarded one of the red cars and as
he was smoking rode on the rear
platform. When the car reached
the Observatory and Stanley street
where it turns out to avoid the
steep grade, Mr. Beaton -lost his
footing and the lurch of the car on
the curve threw him out on the
roadway. He struck the ground
on his head and left shoulder.
The car was stopped at once.
When assisted to his feet he seemed dazed but was able to walk with
assistance. His injuries at the
time were not regarded as serious
and he wasassisted to Mr.Horton's
residence to rest. Dr. Arthur was
summoned and also a nurse from
the hospital. The doctor did what
he could to ease the Buffering of
the patient, and left him with the
nurse. Contrary to expectations
however, Mr. Beaton did not rally.
Dr. Arthur make a second visit
shortly after 8 o'clock, when he at
once saw by the change which had
come over the patient that the end
was near and by 8:,30 he broke the
news to VV. W. Beaton, who was
present, that his father was dead.
It is thought that dtjath was due
to concussion of the brain, as
there were no marks of violence
on the body save a slight abrasion
of the skin on the left elbow.
Death came to the injured man
very gently, and jyithin three
hours from the time when he had
boarded the car to return to his
home his body was lifeless.

London July 21.—Owing to the

When the news was broken to him
he had just returned from Hilversun

The Usual Rumors Around
Town-All Quiet at Both
Headquarters Today.
It was persistently rumored
about the streets today that a settlement was pending with the War
Eagle-Centre Star companies and
that they would resume work on
August 1st.
There was nothing to justify dilatory and it is regarded as a most
unlikely one.
Mr. Macdonald Iuib returned
from Spokane but has no news
for the press this morning other
than what has already   appeared.
It was stated this afternoon that
the Le Roi company were holding
a special meeting in London but
no confirmation could be obtained.
Everything is quiet around the
minus and at union  headquarters.
It is generally admitted that the
next move in the matter will be
made in London.
Alas Poor Nolaon.
The Nelson Miner is to be sold
by the sheriff tomorrow and Turner Beaton it Co. have decided to

BtaflC,  Ball Yer.lpr.liay.
Northport, July 22. (Special.)—
The smelter management must be
in a very bad way when they find
it necessary to send out such reports as have appeared in the
Rossland Miner and the Spokesman-Review.
It is possible that the editor of
the Miner may paint the situation
here to suit his fancy, but if Bela
Kadish wishes anyone to believe the
yarns he published, there is only
one way he can do it, Let him invite someone who is well known in
Rossland, and who is not "in" with
either the managers or the men, to
come down and report on what is
going on at the smelter. The men
will be satisfied to stand by tho report.
The strikers know exactly what
takes place inside the works, and
the manager's fairy Btory about
No. 5 furnace and all the rest is as
far from the actual fact as' one can
imagine.
The number of tons smelted after
a fashion iB well known here and
the men have an accurate list and
description of all the scabs at
work or who have been at work
since the strike started.
A choice specimen, one of Bela's
petscabs,recently wandered around
to a union house and fell down on
a pile of sand, the company beer
having been too much for him.-
■ "Come out of that sand" said a
union man. "Do you think I want
you mixed up with it. I'd have to
screen the scab out of the sand before I could use it."
The scab turned ugly anil produced a fun' "company" revolver
which he desired to use for his protection, but the deputy sheriff
gathered in both the scab and his
gun and Judge Marshall, a little
later, confiscated tbe company
weapon ami lined the valiant scab
fifty plunkers besides costs.
The scab   is   known   as   Louis
Lockhiirt, alias McCabe, alius Hick
ey, and at one time he was a   pipe
man at the War Eagle mine.
As the company had supplied the
weapon which caused all the
trouhle, Lawyer Carey, their attorney, kindly paid the line and rusts.
A company of I'inkcrton thugs
twelve in number have left the
hash house and are now boarding
at the Grand Union hotel, It is
said they did not fancy the grub
furnished by Rein's scabs.
Tho smoke issuing from the large
smelter stack shows plainly that
the furnace is eating nothing but
limerock andcoko.and the company
can't pay dividends out of coke. -
Phoenix Getting Civilized
—Mines Cease Work
on Sunday.
The War Eagle savages invaded
Trail—The City of Trail—yesterday, and disposed of the infant
city base ball team by a score of
18 to 11.
The Rossland juniors played the
Northport juniors at the smelter
city yesterday and the Rossland
team won by a score of 18 to 11.
Trail and Nelson juniors played
at Trail in the morning and the
Nelson boys won by a score of 10
to 9.
For the first time in the history
of the Boundary country says the
Pioneer of yesterday, the largest
mines in this section, the Old
Ironsides, Knob Hill and Victoria,
were closed last Sunday. The
whistle was not blown, and not a
man was kept at work except
those needed to keep the machinery
and pumps etc., running. This
new departure will be the rule in
these properties hereafter. It is
understood that this has always
been the idea of Mr. S. H. C. Miner, president of the Granby Co.
and that he wished to inagurate it
some time ago. Now that the development arid shipping departments are in the best of running
order, and ready to send the
smelter its needed quota of 600 or
more tons every day, the plan is
being permanently put into practice.
With many miners it has long
been a firm belief that a mine
could not be run to the best advantage unless it was worked
every day of the year. In fact it
has been asserted that miners did
not care to work only six days per
week. Mr. Miner, however, thinks
differently, and believes that the
company and the workmen themselves are the better off for the one
day of rest in seven. He. is now
putting his theory, in regard lo
conducting the'mincs in which lie
is interested] into effect. For tho
present some shipping will be done
on Sundays hut after a little no
ore will be sent out from the big
Phoenix producers except on week
days.
The Snowshoe mine is also shut
down now on Sundays, hut tlie
Brooklyn, owned by the Dominion
Copper-Co,, is still running usual,
seven days per week.

NOTES AND COMMENTS.
TIME WILL TELL
The manager of the Le Rot
mines and smelter has intimated
that the strike in progress here
and the situation generally has
been fully reported to the directors
in London and that the matter
rests there pending the receipt of
further instructions from headquarters.
It has been stated that affairs
are being re-arranged in the old
country and that we may expect
some radical changes here shortly.
It is asserted that the control of
the four mines and the smelter has
passed from thc Whitaker Wright
people and that tbe new control will
be largely American.
It is also asserted that when
matters are finally settled in London the difficulty here will be
quickly disposed of and the mines
worked for all they are worth.
It is to be hoped that tlie suffering shareholders   of   the   Le   Roi
mines and smelter will shortly  be
represented in ltosslnnd by officials
direct from the board, who will be
clothed with full   power to   re-arrange all matters here.     We venture to say that two cool-headed
men of business, who had the best
interests of the   shareholders only
in view, would settle all matters in
dispute here very quickly   if   they
were on the ground and personally
ascertained what the real facts are.
The day has long gone by never to
return  when  any   corporation  or
set of managers can openly set organized labor at defiance.    In this
instance Bernard Macdonald has
been the aggressor throughout,  for
reasons known only to  himself  so
far as can be   learned,   and   it   is
most improbable that   the  unwise
stand the manager has taken  will
be supported by a   reorganized  directorate, once they learn the  true
state of affairs.
Up to the present moment the
"Miners union have acted throughout with coolness and rare good
judgment and the executive board
have very good reason fur hoping
that when their temperately put
case is understood by those in authority it will receive every consideration.
In the meantime union men will
do well to ignore  all   attempts   to
% create divisions in  their   ranks  into cloud over the real issue  in  the
struggle, ami to patiently await the
final outcome, whatever it may be.
Mrs. Baker Eddy, the owner of
flie patent of Christian Science, defines sin as "a nonentity that annihilates its own embodiment."
This seems like a sort of shadeless
shadow that overclouds its own
nothingness. On the other hand
goodness might be defined as a
shining shimmer that glistens in
the light of brilliancy. Montreal

The critical times through which
we arc now passing are stiring up
the energies of onr local men to attempt what hitherto has been
thought impossible. Notwithstanding the extreme heat now
prevalent there appears to be
plenty of ice at Northport as the

and Tom Beamish has challenged
Manager Fraser's rink to a
game of curling at Northport
next Saturday, Bela Kadish
has promised to act as

Won't Manager Macdonald give

BRAVO ARGONAUTS.
Canadians have good reason to
be proud of their representatives
at tbe great amateur rowing regat-
ta which olosed at the olty ol brotherly love Saturday afternoon. The
Argonaut crew of Toronto succeeded in defeating the renowned Vesper eight and the Winnipeg eight
also defeated the champions, who
came in third after a great strtig-
gle.
Louis Soholes, of the Don Rowing club, Toronto, carried off the
intermediate sculls and in the intermediate singles Marsh, of Toronto, and Johnstone, of Winnipeg, were second and third respectively in the finals. In the Argonaut crew, stroked by Joe Wright,
were Messrs. Donald It. Mackenzie
and James N. Mackenzie, younger
brothers of our own "Archie." Evidently the Argonaut men acted on
the club motto, "Pull Together,"
and their victory will be joyfully
received all over thc Dominion,

were first and second in the leading events of the two days' racing

Rushed.
Marcus, July 22.—Tbis town has
suddenly assumed greatproportions
owing to the building of the Great
Northern railway spur to Republic
and for some weeks Marcus will be

It is expected that 3000 men will
be employed on the construction in
a short time, and no time will be
lost, as it is the intention to run
trains over the new road this next
winter. A steel bridge about 1500
feet long will be built over the
Columbia river at Marcus, which
will probably be finished some time
in the spring.
Many of the men who are leaving Rossland will seek employment
on the new railroad in the Boundary country.
The route of the new line runs
up the valley of the Kettle river*
to Grand Forks, and thence up
Fourth of July creek, by way of
Summit camp to Phoenix.
A branch is also to bo built to
Republic. Simms and Shield have
got the contract for the entire
work, which they let out in largo
blocks of from one to five miles
each.

A PLAIN STATEMENT.
The Facts of the Case as Presented by the Executive Committee of Rossland Miners' Union,
No. 8.8, W. F. M.
Rossland, B. C, July 12th, 1901.
To the Citizens andjiusiness 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 combattants 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 corportations 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 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. 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 satis-
factorialy 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. F. M
