THE BIG STRIKE
Machinists of Chicago Q-o
Out Today.
SITUATION MORE SERIOUS
A Sympathetic Strike  Threatened
By the Allied Trades- Manu-.
facturers Sign Agreement.
Chicago, May 31.—Chicago's
machinists strike today. More

employers refused to sign the agreement sent out yesterday for a 12J
per cent, increase in wages, a nine
hour day and lime anil a half, and
double time for all time over nine
hours. A few manufacturers, signed the agreement.
Tho situation assumes a more
grave aspect with the threat of the
Allied Trades to declare a sympathetic movement at once. With
the exception of six shops none of
those to which the agreement was
presented was signed. Tho most
extensive firm of tho six signing is
the Link Belt Co., which with 130
men granted the machinists' demand. It is expected that by tomorrow nearly 2000 men will be in
the ranks of the strikers.

Tho late Havelock Gillan who
died laBt Tuesday at tho Sisters'
hospital from injuries received in
the shaft of tht, Nickel jPlate mine

McGillvray, Andy McDonald, Alex.
E. McDonald, Dun Mcintosh and
John Durkin. There was a good
attendance of members of the Miners' union.
Very general regret is expressed
at Gillan's untimely fate. He was

NORTHPORT
SITUATION
Clerks and Assay Men at Work  on
Roast Heaps—No Union Men
Employed.
Special lb the Would.
Northport, May 31,—There is
practically 110 change in the smelter lockout-strike situation here today.
The smelter management stated
that the)r had a number of uuion
men ready for work and asked
Mayor Daniels to provide protec
tion for the men, as they feared
violence. Inquiry proved, however, that no union men had offered
to work or were working.
Nineteen men all told are at
work on the roast heaps and unloading the daily ore trains. Only
five of these are workmen, the
others being clerks and assay men
including some sent down from the
Rossland office.
In order to prevent any possible
trouble the union men consented to
two of tneir number remaining on
the night shift at the electric light
works so that the lights could be
kept going at night. The men are
orderly and there has been no disturbance of any kind.
An offer of work made to union
men has been only on condition
that they retire from membership
in the union, and the men have always positively refused to accept
work under such conditions.

DIVIDEND PAYERS.
Beyond all doubt the most potent argument in favor of the mining industry in the Kootenay country, and the news that is now
looked for from this section is the
announcement of dividends. The
present year started very fairly
well in this respect but for several
reasons the payment of dividends
has fallen off as the year has advanced.
The Payne mine in the Slocan
Stands at the head of the dividend
paying mines iu the province. Up
to dale it has paid $1,438,000 and
this year it has paid three per cent
on its issued capital of $2,600,000,
or $78,000. The Le Roi, which
held the lead as a dividend payer
for so long, now stands second on
the list with a total payment of
$1,305,000 to its credit. No dividend has been declared ou the five
million capitalization of the Le
Roi since November, 1899, when
$50,000 was paid. The War Eagle
has paid $545,250, the last payment being made in February,
1900. Cariboo, Camp McKinney,
stands fourth on the list with
$478,087 to the good.
The other dividend payers this
year are the North Star $39,000,
with another payment of a like
sum declared and due June 15,
making in all $195,000 to date, the
St. Eugene $210,000, Arlington
$20,000, Bosun $12,500, Ymir
mines $96,000. making #144,000 iu
. all, the Centre Star $105,000, and
the Canadian Gold Fields syndicate
$36,000.
It will be seen that during the
first five months of the current
year $635,500 has been paid out in
niiningdividends from southeastern
British Columbia.
EDITORIAL NOTES.
The discontented worries of a
morose person may very likely
shorten his days, and the general
justice of nature's arrangement
provides that his early departure
should entail uo long regrets, says
the Lancet. On the other hand,
the man who can laugh keeps his
health. To the perfectly healthy
laughter comes often. Too commonly, though, as childhood is left
behind the habit fails, and a half
smile is the best that visits the
thought-lined mouth of a modern
man or woman. People become
more and more burdened with tho
accumulations ol knowledge and
with the weighing responsibilities
of life, but they should still spare
time to laugh.
The situation at Northport practically remains unchanged. The
manager's statement to Mayor
Daniels of Northport, who came
here last Sunday to try and arrange a settlement, shows, so far
as Mr. Bernard Macdonald is quoted, that, the whole matter was referred to the London directors aud
that a reply was not expected for
ut least a week.
The pest house at the entrance
to the city park aud cemetery is
now closed and au effort should be
made to find other quarters for the
purpose. The building was intended for a caretaker's residence
and its present use prevents people
from visiting that section.
May has been an unusually cold
and wet month all over the continent so we may expect a pleasant
June, as the weather usually averages one month with another.     If
it is at all possible the council
should make at least a commencement in clearing up a portion of
the city park, so that citizens may
have some place they can stroll
about in fine weather on Sundays
and holidays.
It is a matter of congratulation
to the camp that one of our mining
men h- i been selected as the general manager of so important a
mine as the Payne. Mr. A. C.
Garde, of the War Eagle-Centre
Star staff, who has been appointed,
will now have an opportunity of
making a great name for himself.
The Payne now stands at the head
of the list of dividend paying
mines in British Columbia and Mr.
Garde will assume his responsible
position at a most interesting stage
of the mine's history aud all mining men here will follow Ihe future
management of the Payne with a
keen interest. Mr. Garde has always shown great interest in local
matters and the canip will miss
him. Good luck to the Payne's
new manager.

aliesburg.
The garrison at Yladfontein ap
parently was largely composed of
yeomanry, bad 174 men put out of
action. That their assailants came

VALUABLE
PAINTINGS
Great Find in an Old Curiosity Shop
in London by a Thrifty Pair-
Bought for 15 Shillings,
New York, May 31.—According
to the Tribune's London, correspondent, three pictures incrusted
with grime wore recently purchased in au old curiosity shop by a
hrifty husband and wife in Cheshire
England, for fifteen shillings, one
of those when partially cleaned for
the adornment of their modest
dwelling proved to be the work of
au early Italian master, another
was a Corrott, and the third was a
painting by an early English
master.
Encouraged by the knowledge
that what they had bought for
fifteen shillings was worth £100
the couple returned to the old curiosity shop and bought for a
pound a canvas blackened with
age which was used as a firescreen.
Tbis picture when cleaned disclosed the name "Dei Pompa" in
one corner and has been identified
as a rare work of an Italian painter. The Cheshire couple are now
asking £25,000 pounds for their
treasure for which they gave a single pound.
The Worid's society reporter
has been unaccountably off shift
ever since the openirg of Rossland's 850,000 court house. The
reporter says he has been "indisposed" and only today "handed in
his report of the event in question.
As it purports to be an accurate-
description it is given without
comment:
A few days ago occurred an important epoch in Rossland. the
opening of the new solid brick
court house on Columbia avenue.
The ladies of Rossland appeared in
court dress and Mr. Justice Martin
in ermine and scarlet. Mr. Sheriff
Tuck of Nelson-on-the-lake wore
the regulation cocked hat and
Rocky Mountain .sword, while Jack
Kirkup wore his usual sunny smile
aud yellow leggings. Judge Town-
send had a lubin air about him and
wore his lost Gainsborough. There
were frock coats of ancient and
modern vintages, coals made by
Poole of Loudon, reform fits made
in the effete east by Ikesteiu &
Sons, Ltd., and others worn by the
Oriental. commission which had
evidently been made by Chinese
(heap labor. To add his tribute of
respect to the bench Mr. Bernard
Macdonald closed down the North-
port smelter for the day and were
it not for his London board would
have closed down the miues as
well. However, like all other good
things, the function came to an
end and spectators and officials
weuded their way homeward. Mr.
Justice Martin, after disrobing,
went over to the club and oue of
the members, having heard his
name mentioned, went forward
with beaming countenance and,
extending the glad lnnd, said:
"How are you Mr. Martin?"
His lordship drew back haughtily aud replied:
"Mister-Justice Martin if you
please.''
For an instant the member was
dumbfounded but, quickly recovering, replied:
"Oh! I beg your pardon Jedge;
I thought it was Joe."
Mr. Justice Martin, who has a
keen sense of humor, thoroughly
appreciated the sally and on his
return to the coast will present it
to Judge Walkenl as a brand new
bon mot to add to his celebrated
Cariboo collection.
