Sandon,   July 28.—The silver
lead mine owners  have  held  a
meeting here   and the conference
was held behind closed doors so far
as the press was concerned.
According, to the Sandon Review,
the purpose ot the meeting was to
hear the report oi the committee
who were appointed in December
last to proceed to Ottawa to seoure
adequate protection, and further
to perfect a permanent organization. In this they were successful-
The principal point attained was to
seeure the sanction of the silver-
lead producers to pool the output of
their respective properties. By
doing this they presented a united
front in disposing ol their ores
more advantageously, whereas by
shipping the old way—selling individually— they were compelled
to accept the terms and rates offer
ed by the smelters. To further
facilitate the disposal ol their ores
they appointed a committee empowered to dispose of the ores m
such a manner as they see fit and
to the smelting concerns, whether
in Canada or the United States,
offering the most lucrative rates.
For instance one smelter may desire a grade of ore running high
in lead, while another would prefer
one with a much lower percentage
ol the same metal.
After drawing up the preliminaries attending organization, the
mine owners adjourned their meeting until Tuesday, August 4th.
when the proceedings oi the meeting will receive final ratification.

Peking, July 29.—Tka attitude
of the Russians since the Port
Arthur conference is more confident than before. At present there
is no pretence of the evaouation ol
Manchuria. On the contrary reinforcements of troops, field guns
and ammunition are constantly arriving. As a result of General
Kuropatkin's visit to Dalny it has
been decided to station 12,000 to
15,000 troops there, to build two
powerful forts, and to fortify the
coast and railway from Port Ar-
thur to a point two stations above
Dalny. The supply of foodstuffs/
and coal to Port Arthur is con-i
tinuous.
Naval officers at Chefu Bay they
have never seen such activityl
Russian ships are constantly drilling and manoeuvring in gun practice. This may not forbode war
but it accounts for the fear oommon
in North China. War may be posr-
p.ible. The Russian garrison at
Liauyang has been increased.
From Tashilichao, on the railway
near Newchwang, to Port Arthur
there are now more than 30;000
troops. At the mouth of the Yalu,
on the Korean side, is a Russian
settlement on an excellent site.with
a frontage of one mile to the river.
Permanent buildings are being
erected.
A British officer the other day
saw 80 Cossack reservists encamped
under a cavalry officer. On the
Chinese side of the mouth of the
Yalu is Tatundkau, with 5000 inhabitants, the head station for the
collection of the likin duties. From
the anchorage to the Bhore is a distance of four miles by a narrow
channel, or rather, a ditch, which
is dry at low water. This is the
port Amerioa desires to have
opened. Thirty miles up stream
there is the more important port of
Antung, easily reinforceable as an
important military station. The
Manchurian railway is eight
marches distant. Ten mileB from
Antung is Wuji, whose opening
was requested by England, and
refused out of deference to tho Par-
loff incident.
This is somewhat ominous, and
suggests the possible extension of
Russian intrusion to tbe Yalu. It
is causing much misgiving. People ask why Russia enters on a
provocative course unless she is
conscious of superior power. Hitherto no policy could be calmer or
more reasonable or more restrained
than Japan's, but the uncertainty
of tho future causes some uneasiness.

FREE   TRADE   SUGGESTION.
Among the many suggestions,
aays the Vancouver Provinoe, being put forward in Great Britain in
connection with the preferential
movement, that of Lord Farrer
easily takes front rank for absurdity. The noble lord, who is an
ardent free trader, proposes praotically to subsidize the colonies to induce them to adopt a free trade
policy. He suggests that the Mother-country should pay to the
colonies the amount they derive
from customs duties, provided it
does not ezoeed $75,000,000 a year,
and that in return the colonies
throw down their tariff walls. One
can imagine Lord Farrer looking
at the Canadian customs returns,
discovering that we collect in the
neighborhood of thirty million, and
concluding that if we were paid the
thirty million we would be glad to
abolish the customs duties. This is
the conclusion of the genuine free
trader, who will be found nowadays
nowhere outside of Great Britain-
He takes no account of the advantage local industry receives from
tariff protection. Not thirty million, nor ten times that sum, could
compensate Canada for the infliction of a free trade policy. We
value our fiscal policy, not by the
dollars it yields in revenue, but by
the advantage it confers upon our
own people in various branches of
industry; Free trade ia not a
possibility, not even an issue in the
present controversy. It means free
trade without the Empire, but not
an attempt to throw open the markets of the Empire to the world.
Apart from this aspects, the suggestion advanced by Lord Farrer
reveals, we believe, a misunderstanding of the attitude of the col-
nies. They are not approaching
the question in the mercenary spirit attributed to them by the Liberal nobleman. They would not for
a moment consider such a proposition as he has advanced. We must,
however, be prepared for suoh ungenerous attacks. The question is
in politios now, and the politicians
are looking for ways of prejudicing
publio opinion.
ARBITRATION.
Premier Barton of Australia ia
bringing in a conciliation and arbitration bill into the Federal
House this session and there is
every prospect of the bill becoming
law at an early date. There iB no
exemption of government employes
from the principles of the act.
It will be noticed by the observer
that first of all New Zealand led
the way with a compulsory arbitra
tion bill whioh constituted a final
court of appeal on all labor ques
tions, the first court being that of
conciliation. The act, after having
been in operation for nearly a decade, is found to have been accompanied by an elmost utter ab
sence of strikes. It iB claimed that
this absence iB due to the general
(prosperity oi that country   and it
and not the Arbitration act should
be given the credit.     Unfortunately for this argument other countries
have had   unexampled   prosperity
but they have had rtrikes just   the
same.     It is merely a coincidence,
of course, that they had no arbitration act.     It   is  prophesied   that
Premier   Seddon will  yet   wreck
himself in this  legislation.     That
was prophesied many  years   ago;
that was prophesied before the December elections of  last year,  but
the propheoy has been f aloified and
the ohances are, after so long   and
so successful a trial, that  when it
comes to Premier Seddon's   turn to
make way for another  man,   that
no way will be made for a change
of polioy.     Evidently thiB is   the
opinion of   Australia.     Watching
the result of the great experiment
across the  sea 1000 mileB  away,
South  Australia   half    heartedly
went  in  for   conciliation without
the compulsory arbitration feature,
unwarned by the fate of   precisely
similar measures  in   other  coun
tries.     It was a failure, and in its
failure was prophesied that of  the
more logical New   Zealand    aot.
Seeing that this prophecy was  unfulfilled New   South   Wales  took
heart and itself, a couple  of years
ago, entered into an investigation
and decided to adopt the New Zealand policy,  abolishing,   however,
the conciliation feature.    This has
been found to work so successfully
that now the Federal government
has taken up the same polioy. Canada as yet lags behind and listens
to the voioe of  everyone  who declines to arbitrate.   Surely the Act
has now got bo far beyond the ex
perimental stage that it  might  at
all events be given  a  trial  here.
We want no more labor   dispute?.
The country is sick of them.     But
labor disputes cannot cease  except
in one of two ways, the one   being
that the worker sink to the   condition of the slave and surrender his
rights into the keeping of another,
which course   all   history  teaches
has led to the  greatest  abuses   of
power, loss of prestige and   bloodi
est of revolutions.     The other way
is to recognize the rights the   one
of tbe other and come   to   a   basis
upon   which  settlements  can  be
made over labor disputes,   just  as
they are made   in   commercial  or
private disputes   in   which   labor
barelp enters.

HOW TO END LABOR DISPUTES
President Tuttle Tries a New Plan
Which Gives Satisfactory
Results-
Systems of dealing with labor
difficulties, like systems in general,
depends for success on the men
who operate them. The absence
of industrial conflicts on the Boston & Maine Railway during the
general disturbance of the past
year has already been noted, and
many favorable comments have
been made on President Tuttle's
system. Whether the absence of
friction was due to the system or to
President Tuttle is a matter of
opinion, but his plan has certainly
worked well in his own hands,
however, it may operate elsewhere.
When the question of hours and
wages was under discussion this
year, and before any action had
been taken by the men through
their unions, he suggested that the
whole question of hours and wageB
be taken up, so aB to have a settlement on a new basis by July 1,
when the new fiscal year opened.
The men were invited to choose a
oommittee to represent their views,
and the committee was given an opportunity toexamine the schedules
of wages which the road could offer,
and to see how the prices of steel,
coke, oil, and other necessary supplies had gone up, and how much
the advance meant to the operating
accounts. This was materially
different from the policy of waiting
for the men to take some definite
action or dismissing the leaders
before they do so. It enabled the
committee to know what it is fair
to expect the road to do for its
employees. As a consequence
every man who went to Boston in
the interest of the unions was convinced that the new wage scale and
hours of work were fair.
Prom the announcement of increases i ii wages it is evident that
the employees of the Boston &
Maine have lost nothing by their
policy of moderation. Qeneral
trainmen, including all conductors
and brakemen, have received notice of an increase of twenty-five
cents per day. Freight brakemen
have the day's mileage reduced
from one hnndred miles to seventy-
five. The pay of the brakemen
has been two dollars a day. Under the new schedule they will get
$2.75 for a seventy five mile run.
Engineers have received notice of
a general increase of twenty per
oent. Section hands will receive
an increase of five cents a day.
The average pay was formerly
$1.45 and $1.50 a day, and under
the now schedule will be $1.50 and
$1.55. In the switching service
day hands have been notified of an
increase ot twenty cents a day and
night men twenty-three cents.
The average pay was heretofore $2
for day service and $2,10 for night
work. The change will raise the
pay of the day men to $2.20 a day
and the night men to $2.30 per
night. The increases go into effect
without any unreasonable delay.
The essential feature of this system
is a willingness to aot fairly aud
reasonably and to talk over a business matter in  a   business   way.
With tbat incorporated in any
By stem its other details are of little
consequence. President Tuttle
could have rejected the committee
and demanded that the men state
their grievances as individuals. He
might have dismissed all the men
known to be connected prominently with unions. He might have
made an offer, while refusing to
give any details as to the railway's
revenue and expenses, And the
men might have discussed and
dwelled upon their grievances until they became too antagonistic to
consider any proposition except a
strike. But the Tuttle system
works differently

SIMILKAMEEN CITY, ,B. C
Now Is the Time to Buy Lots
in Similkameen ©ity, B. 6.
CAMP HEDLEY is the most talked of camp in the provinoe, ind situated in the centre is Similkameen City, surrounded by
rich mines whioh will shortly have large payrolls. Over 200 lots have been sold to business people who realize that Similkameen will become the metropolis of this district. The Nickel Plate mines have expended $300,000 in development and are at
present building tramways and a 40-stamp mill. Arrangements are being made for the erection of a large smelter at Similkameen City whicb will oost about a million dollars. Besides the Nickel Plate group of claims being developed by one of the richest
mining oompaniea in North America, there are several other groups and properties which will shortly be developed, among them
being the Kingston Mines, Rollo, Wellington, Winnipeg, Red Chief and Pollock. Situated as it is in the beautiful Similkameen
valley, midway between Princeton and Keremeos, and protected from all opposition in tbe valley by adjoining a large Indian
reservation, this townsite will become one of the prinoipal mining camps of the Pacifio Northwest. It was only a short time ago
that lots in Rossland, Nelson, Greenwood and other mining centres were selling for the same price that they are.today being sold
for in Similkameen,   Come in before the boom and double your money.
Similkameen City to Have Two Railways.
The Viotoria, Vancouver & Eastern and the Canadian Paciric railways are starting immediate construction for the Similkameen,
which will make this town a railroad centre and divisional point, and when these competing lines are completed through to the
Paoific ooast they will beoome the main through lines, being the shortest route from the interior to tbe coast. A large Bawmill is
running steadily on the west addition, the only available timber for miles around. The main street is 90 feet wide, being all
cleared and ready for building purposes. All railways, roads, telegraph and telephone lines will have to come through this
townsite, whioh is located in the centre of the whole Similkameen valley and will become the largest distributing point and
mining centre in British Columbia,

Platinum at Poplar Creek
If the report that platinum has
been found in the veins at Poplar
creek be confirmed on full investigation, then the most remarkable
find ever known in mineralogy will
have to be placed to the credit of
the Lardeau.
The facts are as followa: According to C. O. Woodrow, a strange
mineral or ore looking like blue
quart/., with specke of apparently
arsenical iron was found by Alex
Strand on an extension of the vein
on Gilbert & Marcus Gold Park
property. Mr. Strand sent it to
McGregor, the celebrated assayer
in Salt Lake City, Utah,
w ho gave a return showing it pro-
duced five ounces of platinum to
the ton, This assay induced Mr.
Marcua to have an examination
made on the Bame stuff which also
occurs on hiB and his partner's
ground. He got a return of one
ounce of platinum to the ton.
The news is start ling inasmuch
ae up to the present there ia no
authentio record of platinum occurring otherwise than in the gold-
bearing placer gravels. Lardeau
