Second avenue. V. St N. Phone 68
London, Aug. 1.—In the house
of commons yesterday, proposing a
resolution granting Field Marshal
Karl Roberts £100,000 for his
services in South Africa. A. J.
Balfour, the government leader, in
the course of a eulogy of the field
marshal, whom he compared wilh
such men as Collingwood, Nelson,
Marlboro and Wellington, said
there was no doubt that but for
Lord Roberts' daring strategy and
rapidity with which his plans were
carried out, Kimberley and Mafeking would have fallen, 11,000 British would have been starved into
submission at Ladysmith and there
would have been a general rising
of disloyalists in South Africa.
Great Britain might have recovered
therefrom, but at what a cost. The
country was saved from this by the
genius of the man lie now invited
the house (0 reward by a unanimous vote, irrespective of political
differences.
The statement called forth protests from the Irish members. The
Liberal leader, Sir Henry Camp-
bell-Bttnnerman, concurred in the
motion. John Dillion, Irish Nationalist, strongly opposed the vote,
protesting against mentioning Lord
Roberts in assocition with such it
man as Marlboro. He declared
Lord Roberts had shown the greatest inhumanity in South Africa
and said he had employed barbarous methods and had proved
himself a dismal failure.
Kicr Hardie, Socialist, and Independent Labor, declared that in
tjje opinion of experts at home and
abroad Lord Roberts' failure
primarily was responsible for the
continuance of the war.
After further debate for and
agafnst the measure, Mr. Balfour
moved the closure, which was carried by 257 to 10S. The resolution
was afterwards adopted by a vote
281 to 73.

Referring to the actions of bogus
United States Marshal Lamb, the
Northport News of Wednesday
gives the following account of his
arrest:
During the progress of the trial
four smelter guards marched into
the court room armed with big
revolvers. HarkneBS ordered them
placed under arreBt and one guard
drew his revolve on D ?puty Sheriff
Anderson" The latter drew his
gtin as quick as a flash and covered all of them, and another
guard said, "don't give up your
weapons." ■ At this remark he laid
his hand ,on his revolver, but
Councilman Field grabbed him
and they were all disarmed.

Salmon   Canneries   Need

High Wages.
New Whatcom, Wash., Aug. 1.—
The salmon are just beginning to
reach the Fraser river, and the
fishermen there are beginning to
report good sized catches.
All the canneries are short of
help, too, and the managers are
using every endeavor to get all
grades of labor; men, women, boys
and girls, to whom they are willing
to pay the highest kind of wages.
Many of the little girls are making
$3 per day, and anyone can get
work that applies. The boatmen
are working night and day and almost sleep ou their feet.
The run of salmon continues and
all the canneries on Ihe Puget
sound have more than they can
handle. Fish are being left in the
traps because the canneries cannot
put them up. As salmon will keep
in good shape in a trap for a week
at least, if not overcrowded, the
boats take out enough to keep them
from suffocating each other and
leave the balance in the trap till
such times as the cannery can take
care of them.
We have too many beans and
peas on hand, we will sell them for

(Special to the World.)
Northport, Aug. 1, 4 p.m.—Bela
Kadish, the smelter superintendent,
had a narrow escape yesterday.
He got as far as Marcus in the
morning and learning of the issuing of a warrant at Northport for
his arrest on the charge of carrying fire arms he decided to retreat
south.
He wired Spokane and North'
port tor a special engine to take
him south. The engine from North-
port reached Marcus first and
carried off the smelter superintendent on his way south.
In the meantime the special
from Spokane was coming up at
great speed as the wire ordering it
had been very urgent, and through
some mistake the two specials
nearly collided. Fortunately there
was a straight bit of road where
they met and each had fair warning of tho other's approach and
with the aid of the brakes the two
locomotives were brought to a
standstill without any damage except a doubly scared smeller superintendent.
A special train carrying 80 men
who had been got together at Duluth, Minnesota, to come and work
at Northport hag been successfully
interviewed by union agents along
the road and all of the men have
been turned loose on- the harvost
fields in place of coming here.
Several more of the Leadville
party got away from the smelter
last night, and today and the total
number at work is being reduced
to between 50 and 60 once more.

For the first time since the inauguration of the trackmen's strike,
Kamloops is infected with a "scab"
outbreak says the Sentinel. Strictly
guarded.and provided with a special
"armored train," a gang some .50 or
60 "scabB" are now employed in
the yards. The gang is made up
of imported Italians and Japs. The
former probably do not know that
the strike is on. They are ignorant of our language, and being
brought out here by the C.P. R.
under contract imagine they have
to stay with the job, and moreover,
the special constables with their
revolvers', exercise a coercive influence. The Japs aie. doubtless,
provided by bosses in Vancouver,
who can practically compel them
to work whether they want to or
not. It is satisfactory anyhow lo
know that this is the only class of
labor the C. P. R. can secure in
Canada ready to suffer the degradation of "scabbing."

London, August 1.—A sensation
occurred this morning in Rotten
Row, the famous track in Hyde
Park, London, running parallel to
the drive, and exclusively reserved
for equestrians. Among those who
took part in the big gathering of
rank and fashion was the Marchioness of Londonderry, who fell
from her horse. Her ladyBhip
was riding along the row, when
her strange action attracted attention. Then her horse stopped
and the marchioness immediately
fell to the ground in a fit. She
was driven to her residence and
later was reported to be improving. 1**

SCAB LAW BREAKERS.
Notwithstanding the detailed
accounts which have been published almost daily about the progress
of events at Northport, then-
are kindly disposed people in Rossland who gravely doitbt whether
the reported trials and convictions of the smelter officials for
gun carrying, resisting the officers
and general misconduct, are really
true. It is incredible, say these
gentle critics, that any officials
of a company under British control, such as the Le Roi Smelter
company is, should openly and
defiantly break "the law in the
manner described. Yet Lamb
and the rest of the gang have all
been arrested, disarmed and fined.
Over five hundred and fifty dollars in fines alone has so fai been
imposed and paid, not, be it well
marked by the Btrikors or anyone
connected with them, but by scab
smelter watchmen and smelter officials generally.
It is to the credit of the local
authorities that they have acted
promptly in the matter and have
done everything in thoir power to
prevent tho carrying of arms by
anyone. Wc hope such a disgraceful disregard of the law is
impossible on this side of the line
even by a powerful company like
the [iii Roi, but it is well to remember that Kadish, the smelter
superintendent, is acting under
the direct personal supervision
of Bernard Macdonald and that a
word from the general manager
would stop all this criminal foolishness of carrying Winchesters and
revolvers.
If the report wired the Woui.n
at 4 p. m. yesterday was correct
Mr. Bela Kadish having learned
that there was a warrant out for
his arrest wisely returned to Spo*
kano, although he had reached
Marcus on his way north yesterday morning.
If the local justices are able to
impress upon Mr. Kadish and his
orderly officials that the kind of
conduct attempted will not he permitted and that the law will be
vigorously applied without fear or
favor, serious trouble may yet be
averted.
In view of the trials and con
victions which have taken place at
Northport within the last week wo
invite the editor in chief of the
Rossland Daily Miner, Mr. Bernard Macdonald, to comment un
the very peculiar state of affairs
shown to exist.
The Miner, might also, with
profit to the community at the
present tiuii.', take up the account
published in these colunis of the
trip from Leadville to Northport
by the 70 men brought there by
the smelter press gang. Mr. Davis,
whose account we published, is
here and the common test of all
evidence-cross examinination-can
be readily applied to him and his
story either by the miner, or any
one doubting the (ruth of tho facts
related.
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
The Kamloops Sentinel, which
is doing great work on behalf of
the striking C. P. It. trackmen, remarks on the refusal of Manager
McNicoll to arbitrate; "Manager
McNicoll has declined to meet the
Railway Brotherhoods' conciliation
committee, and is apparently determined to prolong the trackmen's
strike indefinitely, utterly regardless of the convenience and safety
of the traveling public and the
trainmen.   From the outset public
sympathy has been with the nibii,
and now that Manager McNicoll
has declined to refer the trackmen's
grievances to arbitration^ popular
feeling will he the ihore strongly
on the side of the strikers."
It is proposed to hold an exposition at Bendigo in Victoria, Aus
tralia, near the close of the present
year, to celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of the discovery of gold in
Australia, in 1851. Preparations
are being made to interest all of
the States of the new Commonwealth of Australia, and the exposition will be on a very considerable scale.
The offence of personating a
United States marshal is a very
serious ono over the line and any
one convicted of the crime is likely
to get a heavy sentence. We know
how to deal with such offenders in
Canada. Just fancy Frank
Vaughn's joy at encountering a
bogus Canadian constable, and the
celerity with which the "official"
would be put "inside."
The Toronto Globe pays a kindly
tribute to the memory of the late
Senator George W. Allan who died
at his home in Toronto on July
24th. The Globe describes the deceased gentleman as "Toronto's
first citizen" and warmly eulogizes
thiB Conservative senator for the
high stand he took on all public
questions, and for the active, practical, and intelligent interest he invariably displayed in matterB
touching the good of the community
among which he passed a long and
honored life. '
The riot at thc meeting in London yesterday of the Standard Ex
ploration company's shareholders
is an intimation of what may be
expected a little later on when
further revelations are made public. If the shareholders have lost
all their money they can at least
make it very warm and unpleasant
for those who are responsible for
the fraud practiced on the investing public.

KENNAN'S BOOKS
Why the Writer Was Expelled from Russia.
HIS PERSPECTIVE WAS WR0N<
Official Reason Given to the Press-
Kennan Will  Come to  Nova
Scotia—His Good Work.

Class and Quick Service
at the
HOFFMAN HOUSE.
London, Aug. 1.—There is only
one explanation for Mr. Kennan's
expulsion from Russia, and that is
(hat the Russian government has
not recovered from the effects of
the Siberian exile system, which
has been greatly modified since Mr.
Kennan wrote about it. His ex
pulsion was simply a question of
policy which has not affected the
personal attitude of other friends
towards Mr. Kennan, who was in
vited to places where the highest
government officials were present.
A responsible official of the press
department of tho ministry said to
the correspondent of the Associated
PreBB on Mr. Kennan's arrival:
"I do not think that anybody
heredoubts Mr. Kennan'sgood faith.
We believe he made an honest and
sincere investigation of our prison
exile system; that he was misled
by those he trusted, and was often
imposed upon. His perspective
was wrong. One can give a bad
impression of any country if one
selects the most repulsive subjects
to write about. Personally I think
Mr. Kennan's book did a great deal
of good. Our press is now allowed
to discuss the conditions of exile
with a freedom not dreamed of several years ago. The shameful conditions prevailing in the Island of
Sakhalien were lately exposed
courageously, by a St. Petersburg
newspaper, and the worst abuses
have been corrected."
Mr. Kennan is going to London,
from thence he will gd to Nova
Scotia.        y •

across the Similkameen river is
Copper mountain, within easy distance. Besides numerous mineral
claims many of which will, in my
opinion, unquestionably develop
into mines, there is also along
Whipsaw and Nine-mile creeks and
lhe Similkameen river coal measures. There is also another possible industry that may eventually
become important. Near by are
large deposits of clay suitable for
Ihe manufacturing of pottery, fire
bricks, sewer pipe, etc. Immediately below the townsite iB a splendid site for a smelter, and if the
future justifies the erection of a
plant the product of both Kennedy
and Copper camps could easily

Tbe business and social interests of a community are so closely interwoven in a community like Rossland, that any dispute among the industrial elements fbrmirig 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 thec
big corporations of Rossland and Rossland Miners'Union in April1, 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. 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, 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 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 wafeejs 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.
