A STRIKE IS ON
Smelter Manager Forces
Union at Northport.
HO  RIGHT TO ORGANIZE
Unfair Discrimination Against Organized Labor Results in Strike
-Will Affect Mines Here.
Speeial lo the World.
Northport, May 25.—A vote
was taken this morning on the
action of the smelter management
in unfairly discriminating against
the union aud attempting to run
the plant with scab labor. The
union decided unamiottsly to strike
and all union men were called out.
of the smelter works.
The whole question at North-
port turns on the right of the men
to organize and form a ttuion. No
question of wages or hours of labor has been raised nor have the
men made any demands upon the
management.
On the contrary the smelter
management has refused to employ men because they are members of the union. The employes
have been told quite openly that if
they would leave the union they
would be kept at work, but if they
did not they would be paid off and
not re-employed, as plenty ofnon-
unioii men could be got. Kvery
effort has been made in the last
few days to crush the union out of
existence.
The men are firm iu their determination to maintain their right to
organize and will contest the matter to the bitter end.
Tomorrow's Races.
There will be special races held tomorrow alternoonL at Sulinyside track
One of the events will be a free-for-all

Daily—Notes.
The ore shipments for the week
are a little lower than usual owing
fo the holiday. The total given,
8949 tons, includes 677 aud 430
tons sent out last Saturday evening
by the Le Roi and Le Roi No. 2
respectively and which were not
given in last Saturday's issue. Tbe

the Le Roi did not ship last Sun-
Sunday. The Le Roi has been
using the 5o-ton cars all week and

NORTHPORT SITUATION.
It is quite impossible to credit
the statement appearing in the
Miner that so astute a mine manager as Mr. Bernard Macdonald
contemplates closing down all the
l,e Roi mines here and the smelter
at Northport just because the
smelter foreman has had some diffi-
cultyj At the present moment one
would think that there was urgent
need for the l,e Roi company making • the best possible showing in
London and to declare a dividend
as soon as it can be done.
The 22nd was settling day on
the London exchange for Le Roi
No. 2, Great Western and Kootenay shares and it is generally believed that the news appearing in
the columns of the morning
paper and wired far and wide out
of the camp concerning the North-
pDrt smeller had a very close connection with the London stock situation.
Apart from tbe supposed stock
connection the management of the
smelter has raised and even forced
the issue upon the workers, that
no union will be tolerated at North
port. There has been no demand
by the men, no question of hours
or wages in the dispute and the
whole matter turns on the insist-
ance by the management that their
employes shall not form a union.
To meet this unwise move on the
part of the management, the union
men have been forced to take action and a strike was unanimously
voted this morning.
The determination of the mine
and smelter management to unfairly discriminate against the union
without any cause, just or otherwise, and the attempt to crush out
the union itself can only end one
way.
The undoubted right of the
workers to combine for self protection was fought out and settled
in tbe affirmative long ago and
public sentiment will be found
strongly on the side of the strikers
Bernard Macdonald has already
declared himself in favor of unionism and no sane man will believe
that he has voluntarily entered this
struggle upon the flimsy ground
alleged by him. Back of the issue
raised today there lies a
state of affairs in the Le
Roi and allied companies of
which the public now knows nothing certain. Whatever may be the
true causes which have led np to
the present crisis, the issue now
raised by Mr. Macdonald is clear
aud unmistakable. The right to
organize, the most vital principal
of unionism, has been attacked antl
an attempt is lieing made to run
the works with ' 'scab'' labor.
The local union will lie supported by the Western Federation of
Miners and unquestionably the
mines here will lie affected. The
fight is not one of the men's seek
ing but has been most unreasoua
bly forced upon them and, we repeat, public opinion will be with
the men and against—strongly
against-^-all those who have precipitated the war.

SMELTER STRIKE
Statement from President
of Local Union.
THEY ARE NOT AGITATORS
No Trouble About Hours or Wages
—Trying to Run Out Union Men
—Manager Forcing Issue.
The union mon at Northport are
naturally indignant at some of the
inspired articles concerning the situation at-the smelter which have
recently appeared in the Miner and
the president of the local union has
prepared the following  statement:
Having had our attention directed to articles appearing in the
Rossland Miner, and Spokesman
Review, of recent [date, evidently
eminating from the distorted mind
of some one who seeks to prejudice
the readers of these papers against
unionism, and especially against
the Northport Mill and Smelter
Men's Uuiou, we have concluded
that it is best that we make a brief
statement, with a view of placing
the union and its members iu their
true light, rather than to allow the
aspersions of our enemies to drive a
nail iu the coffin of-unionism.
Unionism, so far as laborers are
concerned, is founded on those
broad principles of benevolence,
fraternity and good will, to men,
with a central object of upholding
wages at all times. It seeks for
the betterment of not only of its
own members who are joined in
fraternal union, but fo" tho improvement of mankind generally,
K is probably true that the binding relations of bro.herhood brings
Its members into closer relations
with one another than with those
who stay on the outside, and we
cannot understand why it should
not be so. Iu cases of sickness and
distress not only tlie binding relations of fraternity are brought to
bear but binding obligations to meet
out relief in tbe tiine of distress iu
tbe hour of need.
Unionism seeks to bring within
its protecting mantle, all who earn
their bread by the sweat of their
brow aud honest toil, and all who
are producers in whatever field the
mind can imagine, provided they
be of sober, industrious habits aud
good character. From sometime
prior to the organization of the
union at Northport various employes had discussed the feasibility
of perfecting some kind of au organization that should add to their
mutual edification, benefit and pro-
atection. Finally on the 13th of
March, 1901, the realization of their
hopes in that direction was accomplished in the organization of tho
"Northport Mill and Smelter Men's
Union."
From tho time of its first inception into life, the uuion has rapidly
igrowa iu favor and in members, until at the present time it has absorbed more than 200 of the ilOO
employes at the smelter, at the
time of the close down, aud promise soon to take in nearly, if not
quite all   of the smoltor employes,
Those who have taken at active
part in the formation of the union
are laboring men who are disposed
to obey the laws of the land and refrain from any iufringementofjsuch
laws or the proprieties of well organized society. They have sought
this organization with the aim in
view of bettering their conditiou
socially, economically and fraternally.
By having access to the meetings
of the society, its members were
brought in contact, aud by a mutual exchange of opinions on questions in which they are directly interested a broadening of mind and
of opinions^ on material things resulted, and in fact a much extended
knowledge of all social and economical matters was thereby gained.
We  have   aimed to  bring the
members, their wives and children,
into closer relations by social   entertainment,   not only iu the hall
ro jm and   park  but  also at their
hollies. Much has already been ac
compliahed in the short time the organization has bee formed, to bring
about closer relations ami the elevation of the people, aud much more
is expected.     Indeed the    uuion
had in contemplation the erection
of a fine five thousand dollar build
iug, for hall, library and other pur
poses; but alas, the ruthless hand
of the destroyer   has been reached
out to tear down   that   which we
have labored   so  zealously to roar
and construct.   Why this attack on
our union, of which we had expected
to realize so many anticipated ben-
fits, it  is     beyond   our  compre
hension, unless we come to the conclusion that   they   seek our disin-
tregation for their   own   evil purposes.
The union has brought no grievance to the door of the Smelting
company. They have not asked
for increased pay nor shorter hours,
nor the discharge of any foreman
superintendent, or manager. The
company has not served any notict
of intention to decrease the pay of
the men or of the lengthening of
the hours of work, or of any other
thing that would tend to disturb
the uuion or its members.
One of the superinteu,deuts was
reported to have made use of some
very reprehensible language toward
the workmen. It was reported
that some of the men, a portion of
whom might have been union men
took exceptions to the remarks, and
indeed, it is alleged went so far as
to make Bame ill-advised threats to
drive the offending party from the
cily. And again it has been al
leged aud published to the world
that the union had gone as far as
to appoint a committee to can v
out auch threats. It may be possible that some of the men in their
indignation at the offending party
may have made such ill-advised
threats, but that the union ever advised or countenanced by act, word
or deed, the driving of any foreman or superintendant from the
smelter grounds or from the city,
or much less took part iu the same,
we denounce as wilfully false and
untrue. We say .wilfully false and
untrue, because we believe that tho
parties or party who ra'ade such assertions and caused them to bo published in tho public prints, did so
for malevolent purposes, with a
view to cast odium antl reproach on
the members of the union, aud incidentally affect stock gambling operations to the advantage of those
who gave utterance to tho malicious
lie.
The Hon. C. H. Mackintosh is
repoVted   in   the Review of  May
22nd as saying: "If stories have
been set afloat that trouble is
brewing, the object of the men cir-,
culating them, is to affect stocks^in
London [and America-." _
IfJGovernor Mackintosh is right
in his version of the affair then
we are justified in asserting that
whoever alleged that the union had
caused a committee to be appointed to resort to Coeur d' Alene
methods, or in any manner countenance such acts as a union, lied
and know that he was so doing at
the time he gave utterance thereto.
Bernard Macdonnld,general manager of tho B. A. C. company, is
made to say in tho Review of May
21. "The Northport smelter is
now and has been paying the highest wages of any smelter in the
northwest, and the employes were
and aro well satisfied with both
wages and Lours of work.
About three months a union was
organized by James Wilks, of Nelson, B. 0., and a published statement made at that timo declared
thai the object of the union was of
a purely fraternal aud b-wievoleut
character.
At first it appoared to be fulfilling the alleged objects of its organization. As it gained strength,
however, evidence was gathered
that the rtgitatiou was creatiug unrest and dissatisfaction.
About ten days ago some of the
smeltermen came to the management antl stated that they regretted
being members of the union because the union was -rapidly drifting into Coeur d' Aleue methods
and was threatening lifeitnd properly. Later information was received that a committee w*e appointed to run oue of the foremen
out of town, aud threatened violence, up to assassination if he refused to leave.
The agitators of tho union are
becoming more aggressive, it was
decided to close down permanently
if necessary, rather than to . permit
the company's own trusted employes to become tho victims of the
anarchistic element that controls
the union and the company's business affairs to lie subject to their
dictation."
Mr.    McDona.Id has   evidently
made a very careful   and   studied
statement showing up the strongest side   of  the  company's    case

NORTHPORTS
THE WINNERS
Great Game of Ball  Yesterday-
Large Attendance—Good Play
—Score 4 to 3,
A ver)' large crowd of spectators filled both grand stands and
stretched out along the south fence
—the only shady place—at the
ball grounds yesterday afternoon to
witness the struggle between the
Rossland Stars and Northport
teams. The smelter men arrived
on the noon ore train and the game
was called at 3 o'clock.
It was a pitchers battle from
start to finish. Costello had a little the best of it, having 16 strikeouts and giving no bases on balls,
while Wilson gave two men bases
on balls and had 12 strikeouts.
Although the number of errors was
large they were mostly ot a minor
nature, this being particularly true
in the case of the Northport  team.
The Rossland team was considerably handicapped in the fact that
Sears, catcher, split one of the
fingers of his right hand very badly,
this preventing him almost entirely from throwing to bases. It was
largely due to this misfortune that
Northport secured the victory.
The game was an exciting one,
and interest never lagged from the
first. The score was 4 to 3. Appended is the game in detail:

against tbe union and its members.
Ho says that the union makes  no
demand for   higher wages   or for
shorter hours; in fact admits   thai
thc union had made   110 complaint
againfct the smelter    management.
What then is the trouble?   Can  it
be possible tbat Governor Mackintosh   is   right when   he  virtually
says the whole thing is being done
in the interest of stock  gambling?
Can it be possible that the management of the company are guilty
of cold   bloodedly   throwing men
out of employment  just to "bilk"
its own stockholders?     Can it   be
possible   that tho. management in
trying to throw tbe laborers of the
uuion into disrepute, to stir up discord, blackmail its own employes,
rob men of their good name  in  order to depreciate stock?    Mackintosh intimates as much.     Macdonald iu bis statement shows that he
based his reasons for closing down
the smelter ou the statement   of a
member of the union who, by Macdonald's    own   statement,   shows
tbat he was   false to   his  brotherhood, false to his co-laborers,  false
to his oath and false to himself.
It is quite apparent from Mr.
Mackintosh's statement that the
management of the Northport
smelter ba. no real grievances
against the Northport Hill and
Siiiellcrini'irs union, but has adopt-
etl the policy of stirring up das-
eoi-tl among the laboiers at the
smelter and tbe business mon of
the town for one or tvyo reasons,
and probably both of tbem, to
wit:
To break up tho union, or for
stock jobbing purposes, and we
believe that tboy had both objects iu view.
Il would Boom as though tho
management of the company has
decreed lhe death of the
Mill and Smeltermeu's union,
and that they will leave
nothing undone good, bad, or indifferent to accomplish that purpose.
Finally, we say that the union makes no objection to the d it -
charge of union men for cause but
feel very much grieved at the
wholesale discharge of union men
because they are snch and for no
other cause.
