IS1 SIMPLY ENGLISH PREJUDICE
Criticism of the  English Press—
What Yankee Engineers Say of
of the Reports.
New York, June 12.—"They have
no real American locomotives
abroad strictly speaking, and the
critics of these engines do not know
what they are" so said A. M. Waitt,
superintendent of motor power and
rolling stock for the New York
Central railway system. He was
speaking of the cable reports of the
unfavorable criticisms passed by
foreign railroad officials upon the
American made locomotives with
which they have lately heen experimenting.
"The locomotives they refer to"
Mr Waitt continued, '-'are American
in make true enough, but they are
English and foreign in dimensions,
calibre and power. Owing to the
restrictions made necessary by
narrow and lower tunnels and
other essential differences, which
characterize English roads as compared with ours, it is simply impossible for them to utilize btich a
machine as we now regard as a
truly American locomotive. The
result isthey get a sort of hybrid affair
built by American skill, but on
foreign lines, and to meet foreign
requirements and .then if it does
not prove to be till they had hoped
for they proceed to criticize American locomotives."
Mr. Waitt went on to say that in
England the practice is to nurse
locomotives and let them grow
while in this country the practice
is to run them hard and run them
to their fullest capacity.
Angus Sinclair, editor of "Rail
way and Locomotive Engineering"
years ago drove locomotives on the
Caledonian road in Scotland, being
a Scotchman by birth. He visits
Europe yearly and he has studied
the subject of locomotives in every
country except Spain.
When tlie subject of American
locomotives was brought up said
"Two-thirds of it at least is simply
prejudice. It is hard to get a British or a European engine driver to
make a favorable report of a Yankee invention of any kind, but they
will come to it in spilt, of their pre
judices, The American locomotive
will win its way in Great Britain1
and Europe, that is certain."

TRAGEDY
The Charge of Bribery-
Asking for a Judge's
Removal.
. Honolulu, June 5, via San Francisco, June 12.—Details of a sensational tragedy at sea were brought
last Sunday by the American
schooner.!. A. Campbell, Captain
A. L. Smith from Port Blakely,
with lumber. The mate of tbe
vessel, Adam Huher, was murdered
by the Chinese cook and the latter
after terrorizing the whole crew by
holding possession of the galley for
nearly 24 hours, during which it
was every moment feared he would
set fire to the vessel, was subjected
to a steaming process to bring him
out, but he . shot himself rather
than come forth and be captured.
When the crew finally entered the
galley they found the Chinaman's
body literally cooked by steam.
The Hawaii Barassn, of the 29th
ultimo, by a vote of thirty-seven to
seven adopted a resolution asking
for tho removal of First Circuit
Court Judge Humphreys. The"' resolution states that the judge has
been conducting a partisan newspaper, and that he has continued
to be a political leader.
The grand jury's investigation
nto the charges of bribery in the legislature has submitted a partial report to Judge Humphreys but it
has not been made public.

Evening.

Early Closing Bylaw-Amended—
The City Schools.
The Recipients Included Many Familiar Names - Ceremony Lasted
Nearly Three Hours.
London, June 12.—London seldom had a finer spectacle than was
witnessed in the Horse Guards parade this morning, when King Edward presented medals to 3000 soldiers, participants in the South
African campaign. The great
square was lined with guards,
drawn from the various regiments.
In the centre of the ground was a
purple dais surmounted hy an Indian tent with silver corner poles.
In tho space between tho dais
and St. James park were drawn up
8000 officers and men of the Guards,
Household cavalry and Imperial
volunteers, all of whom had served
in the campaign.
Tbe lord mayor attended in state
and the members of the special
Moorish embassy, in picturesque
costumes, were interested spectators.
Promptly at 11 o'clock the King,
in a field marshal's uniform, the
Queen and other members of the
royal family arrived and the ceremony began.
The recipients of medals in a
long line filed past the King, received the decoration from His
Majesty, saluted and passed on.
Lord Roberts came first, followed
by Lord Milner, while behind them
came crowds of generals and lesser
officers whose names have become
familiar owing to tho war. The
ceremony lasted three hours, tho
Queen standing beside the King
throughout.
Body Identified.
Lowell, Mass., June 12.—The
woman whose headless body was
found in Chelmsford woods last
Sunday and whose head was found
yesterday, was identified today as
Mrs, Margaret Blondon of Boston.
The identification was made by
Mrs. M. Casey, of Lawrence, sister
of Mrs. Bloudon. The dead woman man ii'd Mr. Bloudon, a French
Canadian mill* operative last February. It is not known where the
man is at present.
The bylaw fixing the city assessment for the current year, was the
chief matter before the city council
at their regular meeting last night.
The rate will be 20 mills, the same
as last year.
Shortly, the bylaw provides:
1. AU improvements shall
be exempt from taxation for the
year 1901 to the extent of 60 per
cent, of their assessed value.
2. An equal rate of 12 1-6 mills
on the dollar is imposed on tha
whole rateable property ou the revised assessment roll for the year
1901, (subject to the said exemption of fifty per cent.)to provide for
all the necessary expenses of the
corporation as well as for such payments as may be found expedient
duriug the year.
3. An equal special rate of
7 4-5 mills on the dollar is imposed,
(subject to the- said exemption of
fifty per ceut.) to provide for the
paymentof interest on all outstanding debentures and for providing a
sinking fund for the payment of
same when'due, during tho year
1901. • .
4. Tho taxes are diieand payable
forthwith to the collector, and
all persons who pay the taxes, otht-p
than those lovied by section three
(3) hereof, on or heforo tho 31st
day of August A. D. 1901., shall he
entitled to a discount or reduction
of ono-sixlh of the amount thereof.
5. The rates and taxes on lands
or on improvements, which are unpaid on the 31st day of December,
1901, shall bear interest therefrom
until paid in full at the rate of six
per cent, per annum.
This bylaw takes effect and comes
into force on the 26th day of June,
1901.
Tho finance committee's roporfc
which was adopted included the following.
The city regrets its inability to
to join the education department in
building a brick school building,but
hopes "tho department will treat
the city of Rossland in tho same
manner that it has other cities and
provide Rosslaud with au eight
roomed brick building before handing over tho schools to tho corporation." '
A special attempt /rill bo made to
collect the road tax and arrears of
water rent.
Tho early closing bylaw was finally amended by the insertion of
a penal clause making an infraction
punishable by lino or imprisonment.
No further work will bo carried
out by the board of works except
what is absolutely needed for repairs and work already authorized
by the council and tho street gang
will be no longer employed.
Messrs. Clute and Rolt were the
abseutces last night, the latter for
the first time this year.

SIDNEY WEBB,   L.L.B.
Mr. Sidney Webb is an English
writer on Bocial questions who has
come into great prominence of late
and whose articles are being widely
circulated on this continent.
Mr. Webb ls a member of London county council and chairman
of the technical education board.
At one time Mr. Webb was lecturer
on political economy at the City of
London college and Workingmen's
college, and now holds that post at
the London School of Economics
and Political Science. He is also1
a barrister of Gray's Inn. Still
comparatively a young man, born
in 1859, Mr. Webb received his
early training in private schools in
London, in the Birkbeck institute
and the City of London college, besides spending some time in schools
in Switzerland and Mecklenburg-
Schwerin. In open competition he
Becured a post in the war office in
1878, became a surveyor of taxes
1879-81 in the same way, and still
again obtained a post in the colonial office, which he held for 10
years, resigning in 1891 to enter
the London county council and devote his time to authorship. His
time has evidently been fully 6c1
cupied, for he has written "Socialism in England;" "The Eight
Hours' Day," in conjunction with
Mr. Harold Cox; "The London
Programme;" History of Trades
Unionism," in conjunction with his
wife, who herself had written the
"Co-operative Movement in Great
Britain;" "Industrial Democracy'
(two volumes); "Labor In the
Longest Reign"; "Problems of Mod
em Industry;" besides contributing
to Mr. Charles Booth's "Life and
Labor of the People."
"OUT OP THE   WOODS."
In a letter to the Miner this
morning referring to the Woni.nV
editorial on the Northport situation
yesterday, Mr. Bernard Macdonald
accuses this paper with "shelling
the woods."
We admit the charge and are
glad to know that we have driven
the manager from the locality mentioned into the open country. If
the manager desires to change his
policy at Northport and avert a
calamity the Woui.k will be only
too glad to announce the fact and
allow the parties to settle their differences without comment. But
Mr. Macdonald must promptly
muzzle Messrs. Swayne and Kadish, or their foolish utterances will
undo all his pacific intentions.
Mr. Kadish announced two facts
to tlie smeltermen as set out in
President Shed's statement.
1—That the management had
decided to break up the Northport
union and would do it at any cost.
2—That certain of the mon
would be reinstated provided
they left the union, but not otherwise.
President Shed's open statement
of all the facts, including tho offer
to arbitrate the whole matter in
dispute^ has been in Mr. Macdonald's hands and before the public
for a week. Not a single statement
therein contained has been questioned or denied, and the mana-;
ger's letter this morning carefully
keeps away from the issue presented.
The charge against the union of
intimidating the foreman is a separate and distinct matter. It is
emphatically denied by Mr. Shed,
but if it were true, and not a mere
excuse brought into the matter for
evident reasons, why   not  submit
the question to arbitration?
The men desire peace, not war. All
sensible people in this camp desire
peace, and if Mr. Macdonald really
wants it what hinder! a friendly
arbitration such as the smeltermen
have already asked for and which
up to date the management has refused to consent to?
EDITORIAL NOTES.
The following extract from'Hirs-
chell-Cohen's letter to the Colonist
amply sustains the position taken
by the Womm in the matter. The
writer says: "Unfortunately these
details cannot be made public.since
it is one of-the crying and disgraceful defects in the present law
that permits the inner working of
the mines to remain a sealed book
Some day, when every prodnririg
mine iB compelled to declare its
output, monthly, confidence fn this
country will be partially restored;
but investors are not contented
with having bare totals rendered tq
them once a year in the crude,
form that Mr. Bogle, for instance^
handles the figures."
"They can go back to work" if|
they choose to do so" writes Manager Macdonald this morning. But
he carefully abstains from adding,
as Mr. Kadish did, "provided they
abandon the union."
If the Le Roi management is not:
attacking the foundation of unionism at Northport and really wants
the men and the public to believe
that splendidly got up "foreman
yarn," why do they refuse to let
the public have the whole story?
A board of arbitrators Would 'settle
the matter in one session if the evi
dence was forthcoming.

THE L. S. STARRETT CO.
How a Big Firm Shorten-d the Working Hours Unasked
The L. S. Starrett company manufacturers of fine mechanical toolB
at Athol, Mass., employing several
hundred men have issued a circular to their employes on tho nine-
hour question in which they state
amongst other things, that they
have not been approached by their
men for any alterations in wages or
the'hours of labor but that having
thought the matter over they have
decided' on a change. "Because
we believe that reducing the number of working hours per day from
ten to nine will be beneficial to
working men in general and no
where should • it be more so than
with sober intelligent and progressive employes such as we are proud
to say ours are."
"We are of course in business to
make it pay. But we have an interest in the physical, intellectual
and moral welfare of all working
with us, and rojoice in their prosperity and progress."
"We now take pleasure in shar
ing with you the prosperity whicl
you and we together have earned
Beginning the 1st of June next
nine hours a day or 54 hours a
week instead of 60 as at present,
will be the rule in this factory without reduction in pay."
The employes at once held a
mass meeting and prepared an ad
dreBs of thanks to tbe company
which was signed and presented by
the foremen of tho several departments on behalf of the men.

In the Simons case for the vio

Police Magistrate Boultbee has reserved judgment. The defence is
that the defendant did not solicit
the orders for Toronto goods and,
that the legislature did not empower the corporation to pass the
bylaw under which the prosecution
was commenced.
