slmw, contractor, fell down
two stories through the elevator shaft in ti new building
Ihis morning and was seriously injured.
W. L. Newsome, who returned
from Lytton last night, says there
is little doubt that William Young
was murdered. He was camping
with two men named Cochrane
and Taylor in the Bridge River
country. An Indian camped a
short distance away heard shots
and the next morning Young was
found with three bullets in him,
one of smaller calibet than the
other two. The coroner has gone

SMELTER
FOLEY'S VIEWS
Letter from   Toronto  on
Situation Here.
UPHOLDS THE UNION'S CASE
Misleading  Statements  Appearing
in the Rossland Miner-Fight
to the End.
Foley writing  from
July   17th   says  in
Manager Wants to Get Ore
from the Big Le Roi
Dump.
W. II. Aldridge, manager of the
Trail smelter states that the smelter is still riming three furnaces,
twn on 1 lad ores and one on byproducts. The smelter owns an iu-
teiesl in the Le Roi dump, which
is low grade ore. If the Miners'
union would agree io allow this
ore to be loaded.on cars by union
men, the Trail smelter would be
.kept rtmning. If they do not,
there is not enough ore in sight
to be had, and the smelter may
be compelled to shut down one or
more of the furnaces now running.
The smelter has made an arrange
ment with the Great Northern so
that ore mined on its Kaslo ,v
Slocan branch can be shipped to
Trail, and shipments are now being received.,

THE MINER
OF NELSON
Sold   Jby  Sheriff -- Crow's
Nest Pass People Will
Control It.
Yesterday tdhu sheriff of South
Kootenay sold the Nelson Minor
newspaper, lock, stock, and barrel,
to W. A. Macdonald, acting as
agent for Miller & Richard, type
founders and printing machinery
dealers, Toronto, to satisfy judgments obtained bylliatlirni against
the company tha*t owned the outfit.
The sheriff did what he was
called in to do, and although the
property was bid in by W. A. Macdonald, he was merely acting for
Miller & Richard. It is said.(the
property will pass into thejpos-
session of the Crow's Nest Confl
company, who of late have made
n dvances to keep ithe concern afloat.
If this is true, the Miner will no
doiibt be made the organ of the
Lib tvml party, as the Crow's Nest
Coal company magnates ar»? all
Liberals, and it is the aira of that
party to carry this province at .the
next provincial election.

Christopher
Toronto   on
part:
Organized labor here does not
seem as active as in the west.
Many of the workers aro very con-
servately inclined and have a
horror of breaking away from old
associations, but the much abused
agitator is gradually getting in his
work with the result that here also
as elsewhere the economic problem
of the day offers the principal
food for discussion.
The local press daily teems with
the most misleading statements in
connection with the traokmenS
strike but editorial commentators
carefully avoid taking sides with
the workers in this struggle of poverty against such fearful odds. If J i
labor was wrong, as an undercurrent in the press would lead
one to believe it would be announced to the world in glaring headlines, but not a word of condemnation is published, fearing no doubt,
to offend the employing classes by
encouraging insubordination. The
attitude of the press in this Connection brings clearly to the front the
necessity of organized labor establishing a first class paper, through
which the I ruth may be given to the world and labor get a fair
hearing.
A copy of the Rossland Weekly
Miner containing a lengthy editorial on the situation in Rossland in
which the agitator comes in for
his usual share of abuse is 1 understand being largely circulated
throughout the eastern cities.
The Miner grossly misrepresents
the situation as I very well
know. This is une of tho many
means used by the Mine Owners
association to slander us to the
outside world. If tho quotations
printed are correct the trouble in
Rossland is simply tho work of a
few agitators in opposition to the
wish of the majority of the union,
and this in face of the fact that but
a few months ago a vole in favor
of 11 strike was defeated by but 12
votes on the basis of   a  two   third
vote.
Tlieconditionssince have become
vastly more aggravating as the result of a deliberate attempt on the
part of the managers at Nortli purl
to disrupt the union there without
any justification. This was clearly intended so a blow at the very
vitals of the Rossland union and
at organized labor in the Kootenays. The idiotic inconsistency
of the Miner in firstconceding tho
right of labor to organize and then
championing the cause of the
managers at Northport when ho
attempts to break up (he union
then-, reveals the hypocrisy of
the position taken.
(Bernard Macdonald has crossed
the rubicon. The boys at North-
port are perfectly justified in the
action taken. No self-respecting
citizen of a civilized country can
afford in this enlightened age to
surrender his liberty to any industrial tyrant, and if thc Kossland
union shuts down every mine in
the camp in defence of that Cod
giveit principle they should be upheld itl thc action  they have been
forced lo to take by every lover of
liberty in the community.
There can be no question of the
justice of the cause this time, and I
would advise you lo fight it to the
last, ditch, by every lawful means
within your power.
We have here another instance
of the necessity of our invading the
legislative halls of our country with
force sullicient to compel legislation that will make it a criminal
offence punishable with high penalties for any employer to interfere
with labors' rights to organize, and
that will compel the enforcement
of such laws by the same means
used to bring other criminals to
justice.

WIRELESS
TELEGRAPH
Portland to Have a  Station for Reporting Incoming Ships.
Portland, Ore., July 24.—Experiments with wireless telegraphy for
reporting incoming ships will soon
be made between Tatoosh island
and Neah bay, at the entrance of
Puget Bound. At one time the
government maintained a station
tor reporting and observation on
the island, but the cable to Neah
broke several years ago, and siuce
Ihen vessels have been reported
from Neah bay. The government
now proposes to re-establish the
Tatoosh island station and to reopen telegraphic communication
With the mainland. If the experiment with wireless telegraphy
fails, a cable will be laid between
the island and Neah bay. Owing
lai currents and rocks between the
I island and the mainland, the life
of a cable off Cape Flattery is very
shorl, so the government will do
its best to make wireless telegraphy
a success in order to save the cost
of expensive cables.

A Queer I'l-eieatt.
London, July 24.—A piece of
one's own skull, separated from its
proper abiding place, is rather an
unusual wedding present, but the
bridal gift of Lieut. Elwes, who
married Miss HargreaveB, a celebrated Gloucestershire heiress, took
that form.   He hail ii beautifully
set in gold.
The lieutenant was with tho
.Guards in South Africa, and hail
his bridal present separateal from
his person by the Hoej-s at Moddcr
river.
The OUStom may become fashionable, and if so there will be no lack
of material. Oom Paul's people

return home with a choice and
ample assortment of souvenirs of
lhe Elwes ki in I. Tin* plan may
also help the impoverished ones of
the British nobility and prevent
the running up of bills at tho

MR. FOLK VS LETTER.
Special attention is directed to
Mr. Christopher Foley's views on
the situation here as outlined in
his communication which appears
in today's issue. The fact that Mr
Foley was selected by the Dominion
government as one of three members of the Royal Chinese commission should lie sufficient proof
to people in Eastern Canada of his
Standing and ability. 10 very where
in the west, of course Mr. Foley is
well and favorably known and his
complete endorsement of thetinioii's
action here cannot fail to carry
great weight wherever it is read.
REMEMBER THE  MINER.
From what appears in Mr
Foley's letter published in thil-
issue Bernard Macdonald and hie
allies have been circulating copies*
of the weekly Rossland Miner
through eastern Canadian cities
containing tho untruthful and misleading statements of the situation
here with which evory one in tht
west is now familiar. The Ross
land Miner's true positition since
May last is now pretty generally
known and understood in the wesl
and its views on any mining subject are no longer regarded seriously hy anyone. But while its ability to misrepresent matters ant!
stir up trouble and strife in this
section of the Dominion has been
discounted, it is still in a position
to do the mining industry generally antl all organized labor a greal
deal of harm throughout the Dominion and elsewhere among pea-
pie who are not well posted upon
the real situation here.
This being the case what measure of justice should be meted out
to a newspaper, which has been
guilty of such violent attacks
against unionism as the Rossland
Miner ? How can organized labor
regard the paper, and all who 3Up
port it, otherwise than us bittei
and unscrupulous enemies of the
cause.
Had the management of tin-
Miner been content to present their
side of the case fairly, and to have
abstained from the grossly misleading statements and comments
which have appeared in its columns
ever since, and indeed long before,
the trouble with tbe unions commenced here,no great objection could
or would have been raised. But the
Miner has been "unfair" antl all
tbat, that word implies antl everyone in thia community who resents
such conduct should drive it home
to the management in no uncertain way.
The World ia not calling for the
suppression of free speeoh, It is
calling for tlie practical discouragement of wilfully false and misleading statements of fact such as have
appeared of late in tbe columns of
the once respectable  Daily  Miner.
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
The prevailing hot weather in
the States is affecting our old friend
General Warren, who is just now
in Spokane. The general thinks
that Butte will produce $00,000,-
000 this year if only Clark and
Heinze will stop their gigantic
fight. "I estimate," says the general, "that there are 75,00(1 p.oplc
iu Butte anil the little towns aboul
the place." Dear, dear ! Whal a
census operator was lost in Warren. Come north general dear;
come north and get cool. We
tremble for your safety and your
lanity in that over-heated country
ol yours,    We promise you a warm
welcome and a cool climate,

HOME AND
CHICAGO
How  a  Chicago   Woman
Proved Herself an Exception to the Rule.
A Chicago woman Btarted on
May 2Sth lo spend three months in
Europe, leaving behind her her
husband and a 4-year-old daughter.
She was seized with homesickness
just after passing Sandy Hook,
cried all the way to Southampton,
where she caught the returning
steamer, cried all the way back,
and reached Chicago again after an
absence of three weeks and two
days. When she got there she
said there wasn't a place on earth
like Chicago and home (though it
is not quite clear how she knew,
as she certainly did not look at
any of the other places she had
traveled so far to see), antl expressed the praiseworthy intention of
never leaving Chicago again without her family, asshe "justcouldn't
Bland il" without her husband andl
baby, .lusl why a nice little body
with such pre-eminently sound domestic notions should have tried tn i
amputate herself from the family
circle for three months is nol qui lol
clear, but her conspicuous unsuc-
cess should bo blazoned abroad as
a realistic and verifiable answer to
the cynical novelists who declare
that'tlie American woman never
slays at home when she can travel.
Tbe sympathetic reader will only
regret that young Mrs. Hall hadn't
a belter town lo aome back to than
Chicago.

The new school building was the
only matter ofa importance before
the city council last night. The
discussion again brought out' the
pecular position of Mayor Lalonde
as chairman of the school board
and mayor of the city.
The school board is* endeavoring
to rush a plt»n through for the
new building without reference to
the city authorities. If the seheme
succeeds the architect will be the
contractor and he will certify aB
architect to his own bills as contractor. The plana here have been
submitted.to no one, even the Mayor has not seen them. They have
been rushed to Victoria and approval has been asked. In the meantime tenders for construction have
been advertised for and the "active
end" of the school board hopes to
rush the scheme through.
When the matter was brought
to the attention-of the council or*
iginally it was decided to accept
the trusteeship of the government
grant of $10,000.     '
"Provided the plans and speciii
cations are approved of by this
city council and further that the
council hope a- voico in the expen
diturc of said sum in view of the
fact that any excess in expending
of said sum will fall upon this
council." And this resolution was
sent on to Victoria.
The department of education
now send this Boloman of a letter:
"I am instructed by the Honorable the Minister of Education to
inform you in reply that the education dspartmoiit is conducting its
negotiations with respect to the
erection of the public school in
Rossland witn the secretary of the
board of school trustees of that
city. The school board has been
asked to approve of the plans and
specifications, and after approving
of them to Bubmit them to the lands
and works department. After
theBe plans have received the approval of the department of lands
and works the board of school trustees will be directed to let the contract, and the sum of 110,000 will
from time to time be paid over to
your council on the presentation to
this department of the assessment
sheets duly certified by the arehi
teet in control of the building and
by the secretary of the Rossland
school biiaral.
"1 need hardly say that the city
council has absolutely no authority with respect either to tho erection of school buildings or with respect to the management of school
matters generally."
The council lust night promptly
passed   the   following   resolution:
"The city council can accept no
responsibility of any kind in connection with the funds provided
by the provincial government for
the erection of a school house in
Rossland, except in accordance
with the views already exprosBcd
by the council in their letter addressed to the board of- school trustees, and that the city clerk be instructed to forward a copy of this
resolution to the superintendent of
education."
The matter rests for the present
by the council might have guessed
last night jiiBt why and how the
superintendent of education came
to write the letter he did.

Rossland, B. C, July 12th, 1901.
To the Citizens and Business Men of Rossland and Vicinity und to the General Public:
The business and social interests of a community are so closely interwoven in a community like. Rossland, that any dispute among the industrial elements forming the social
structure, is often mon; disastrous to tlie business or non-combattant class around which
tin: 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 the
big corportations of Rossland and Rossland Miners' Union in April, 1900, this city has apparently enjoyed industrial peace ; yet all who are conversant with the industrial affairs of
Rossland for tlie 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 ol 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, althought of
unquestioned ability in their trade.
Second. —By revoking a time honored privilege of the Secretary being allowed to
solicit members among thc 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
thc agreement of April, 1900; thus preventing us from refilling our ranks depleted by loss
ol members compelled to seek employment in other fields.
Third, By Connection with bogus employment agencies seeking to Hood 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 wages 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 satis-
f.ictorialy 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.

ROSSLAND MINERS' UNION No. 38, W. F. M
