Sis sturdy Joplinites, of the
Rossland Miner type, quit their
job at the Josie this morning and
demanded their time. They got
their pay and will leave for dear
Old Missouri tomorrow over the
Great Northern. Cliff Bowen, the
Canadian Joplinile, who lured the
Missourians far from their native
heath, did his beBt to coax the
men back up the hill at noon but
the men said they were homesick
and anyway the Rossland climate
and the peope did not agree with
them.

Bet-Safe Return of
a Party.
The game season is well on
around Rossland and many sportsmen are met with on the surrounding hills, making the most of this
glorious autumn weather. .;.
The honorary secretary ol a
party of four "hunters" who returned at a late hour last night, has
anded in the following memo for
publication.
C, B. Lord of Sheep Lake fame,
William Hawken and George Bunny miners, and John Jacobs engineer, have returned from Shields
Landing, where they were royally
entertained by Thos. Boman, Esq.,
of Green's hotel. These gentlemen
enjoyed themselves shooting and
fishing, Game was somewhat
scarce but is considerably scarcer
since their return, as they killed
in the neighborhood of 200 chickens. Mr. Hawken and Mr. Bunny killed a fine buck, the head of
which they are getting mounted,
while Messrs Lord and Jacobs
caught some fine fish during their
stay, including one salmon weighing 18 lbs. These gentlemen took
with them two of the finest bird
dogs in the cily of Rossland, kindly loaned them by a friend. The
above gentlemen will bet $500
that these two dogs will tree more
chipmunks than any five dogs in
Rossland.

INJUNCTION
Le Roi Compauy Applying
at Greenwood-A New
Move.
Notwithstanding the fact—aB
stated in the Miner—that the
strike is all over and that the
mines are progressing favorably,
the Le Roi company is applying
to Mr. Justice Irving over at Greenwood for an injunction against the
union.
The application will come up on
Thursday next and S. S Taylor will
oppose the mo' ion.
Just wbat the company is seeking by the application is not known
at the present time.

SYDNEY SWEPT
Flames Fanned by a Terrific Gale.
ESTIMATED LOSS IS $500,000
Buildings Were All Frame—Sixty
Were Burned Up—Water
• Gave Out.
y
Halifax, N. 8., Oot. 22.—The
prosperous and thriving town of
Sydney, Cape Breton, was almost
•wept out of existence on Sunday
by a fierce conflagration which
started about 2 o'elock. The
flames, which were fanned by a
forty-five-mile gale, swept through
the principal business portion of
the town, causing ruin and devas
tation. Four blocks of the finest
business buildings are in ashes.
The only thing that saved the
city from total destruction was a
heavy rain storm, which ret in
after dark. The wind decreased in
fury and the firemen and hundreds
of miners succeeded in getting the
fire under control. Over sixty
buildings are in ashes, and many
more are "badly scorched. The
buildings were nearly alHarge
wooden structures and they burned
so fiercely that it was impossible
to save any of their contents.
Half an hour after the fire started one-quarter of the business portion of the town was in flames,
The town's water supply ""rtbw
gave out, and the engines had to
be sent to the harbor to pump
water.
At 4:30 two of the business
blocks were destroyed and the fire
spread to Bentick street,and half an
hour later Bruce, George, Bentick
and Charlotte streets were a mass
of fire. The miners resorted to
the use of dynamite and several
buildings were blown up with little
effect, as the strong wind carried
the burning embers to other buildings.
The fine building belonging to
the Union Bank of Halifax and the
Baptist and Presbyterian churches
were soon destroyed.
At 7 o'clock the fire had reached
the east end of Charlotte street,
and here its progress was stayed.
The blocks on Wentworth, Prince
and Pitts streets and half a block
on George street were destroyed.
The fire is supposed to have been
started by the bursting of an oil
stove. It is impossible to estimate
the loss at present, but it is roughly placed at between $400,000 and
$500,000, of which not more than
half is covered by insurance.

ENGLAND
INVADED
Preparation for American
Exhibition in Crystal
Palace, London.
London, Oct. 22.—Arrangements
were completed yesterday for holding an exclusively American exhibition in the Crystal Palace from
May to October next year.
In view of the tremendous influx
of foreigners to participate in the
coronation festivities, it is believed
that the undertaking will afford
American exporters an unrivalled
opportunity to show their manufactures and products to the
nations of the world. The Crystal
Palace company is promoting the
scheme, and is backed by strong
advisory committees of American
residents in London and prominent Englishmen, including the
Lord Mayor of London, Mr. Winston Churchill, M. P., and Sir
Henry Irving.
The I*.r_t Snow.
A year ago tomorrow the first
snow of last season commenced to
fall and by the following day there
was nearly four inches of the
beautiful on the streets of the
city.
It is hard to imagine snow while
we are enjoying weather like the
present, but the fall last year was
preceded by just such fine balmy
days as these. Snow fell earlier
last year than in any previous
year in the history of the camp.

Missourians Went Out to Welcome
the New Comers and Make
a Showing.
Hot Weinerwurst served with every
glass of beer at tbe Alhambra,
"Oh where are the ninety and
nine" sang Willie Thompson last
night as he looked over the sixteen
fur-coated Doukhobors that Ex-
Chief Ingram proudly exhibited to
the assistant manager at the War
Eagle boarding house. The scab-
herder explained that seven more
were just then eating their first
square meal in a month, and as to
the balance, he thought they'd be
along some time if the union men
did not get them.
Ingram left Calgary on Friday
with 67 industrious scabs and landed with 23 at Tonkin's, War Eagle
pen last night. Ten departed at
West Robson, and of those who arrived here 16 were Doukhobors,
and the other seven claimed to be
Canadians.
Assistant Manager Thompson
ran down to meet the party at
Trail and came up on the special.
He was so- ashamed of the outfit
and afraid of anyone seeing them
that he got the conductor to run
the special right up to the mines.
A union miner more curious
than the rest of his fellows went
Op the hill and called on the party
at the War Eagle boarding house.
He tackled the Doukhobors and
counted the lot, 16 in al). None
of i hem could speak English and
then the balance of the party were
inspected, there were just seven
all told and they were all at Bup-
per talking the situation over.
The union man left them some
literature explaining matters and
after he had sized up the outfit he
was given a pass and kindly es-
courted back to town by a special
to hunt np some of the missing
oneB. When the railway station
was reached the special was warmly thanked in well chosen language
and the union man departed having as he expressed it "exchanged
cards with the enemy."
The company are welcome to the
Doukhobors as it will take about
two years to teach them mucking.
Some of the re maining seven are
expected down town tbis evening
and then their experiences will be
worth relating—wait for it.
The balance of the party who
arrived last night over and above
the 23 mentioned may be "good
sturdy Canadians" but they have
hardly had time to become naturalized.
In order to protect the incoming
herd the management dispatched
a select lot of Missourians to meet
the special and to return with the
newcomers. The gentlemen from
"Old Missouri" were very muoh in
evidence on the train, knives, guns,
in belts and plenty of ammunition
to "protect" the believers in free
speech. They tried to make a
great show of numbers, but there
will not be more than 23 applicants for work today and Billy
Rugh will have a hard time of it to
get most of the new names right.
The cooks and waiters at the
War Eagle hotel kicked over the
newcomers last night and refused
to wait on them, so the Doukhobors were finally sent off to a
cabin of their own and allowed to
do their own cooking. THE EVENING WORLD, ROSSLAND, B. C, OCTOBER 22, 1901

A VALUABLE HAUL.
Having gathered in all the idle
miners in the Couer d' Alenes and
the last of the "young Ontario harvesters," the Le Roi management
has fallen back on Doukhobors,
men who can not speak a word of
English, and who were imported
into this country as farmers pure
and simple.
One can imagine the sort of welcome these men will get from the
miscellaneous mob on the hill, and
one can also imagine the compliments showered on the ex-thief
catcher for his latest efforts at
scab-herding. Doubtless he told
his employers that he did his best,
and perhaps he did as the union
men were before him wherever he
went, and the scab-fishing is bad in
he Territories juBt now.
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
Webster Davis has been sued for
the price of a windmill. Now we
know how he worked up big pro-
Boer orations. As soon as the
money of Oom Paul gave out so
did the wind.
Whitaker Wright muBt have
made a big pot out_pf the Le Roi
and allied mines that these companies cannot afford to pay tho
same wages to muckers that every
other working mine in British Columbia is paying today.
"President Roosevelt" it is said,
"went to church and unostentatiously took a seat." An American
contemporary inquires,whether the
writer expected the President to
have someone blow a bugle as he
sat down or take off hiB gold crown
with a flourish and deposit it under the cushion.
The initial number of The Colorado Chronicle, published weekly
at Denver, Colorado, by Messrs.
Thum and Coates has just come to
hand. The publishers say: "The
Chronicle will aim always to be a
labor paper in all that the name
implies, We shall to the best of
our ability encourage the organization of laboring men into unions
of their craft, and shall aid in
every possible legitimate way the
building up of those unions now in
existence."
donald from the management of
the Le Roi mine at Kossland,
will be welcomed by fully nine-
tenths of the business men of
Kootenay and Yale, and only a
few members of the Mine Owners'
association will go into mourning
for thirty days. The business men
believe that on Macdonald's retirement the wage question will be
settled to the mutual satisfaction
of the companies and the men
and the settlement will be permanent. Once mine workers know
that the rate of wages is fixed permanently, good men will be attracted to British Columbia. And
once a good man has secured a job
he strives to keep it. Swashbucklers and union smashers are not
wanted in British Columbia. The
former will not work therm elves,
and the latter will not let others
work in peace.—Nelson  Tribune.
Asthma ©lire Free!
But that there is contained in it
(the Rossland strike) the nucleus
of a movement to wage war on unionism as such in British Columbia we can hardly credit. Sue h a
struggle if carried out to the bitter
end would practically destroy all
the capital invested in British
Columbia mines and would lead
to years of industrial anarchy.
It would certainly seem to be aB
contrary to the interests of the
mine owners as it would be hostile to the spirit of the age.—The
Victoria Mining Record.
Labor organizations are truly
the poor man's church. They are
for the social, moral, intellectual
and financial elevation of mankind. They bind men closer together in friendship, assist each
other in attaining a higher efficiency in the various pursuits of
the trade upon which depends
their daily bread, assist a brother
when out of employment. When
sickness and death visits a member's family the society furnishes
to the bereaved both moral and
financial support.

Real Situation.
Rossland, B. C, Sept. 5th, 1901.
To the Citizens and Business Men of Rossland and Vicinity and to the General Publie:
The Le Roi mine manager has been circulating a report that the strike here is practically at an end and the mines are about to resume. This report has been taken up by their
organ, the Morning Miner, and sent out over the country as a true report of the situation in
Rossland. We have made a carefyl analysis of the situation here and believe that no impartial reader can see much reason for the joyful enthusiasm which Mr. Bernard Macdonald
and his paper profess to feel.
For three and one-half months the strike has been in force at Northport. The greatest claim Macdonald or Kadish have ever made during that time is that they have been
able to operate two of the five furnaces at the smelter. It is only a question of simple arithmetic to see that if it takes three and one-half months to start two furnaces, it will take
eight and three-fourths months before they can have the smelter in operation. Now, if it
takes eight and three fourths months to secure the 500 men necessary to start the smelter
it will take twice that many, or seventeen and one-half months, to secure 1000 men for the
mines in Rossland. Or, at the end of twenty-six and one-half months, if Macdonald has the
same success he claims to have had thus far at the smelter, he will be in a position to work
the mines.
No one can deny or dispute that Bernard Macdonald has left no stone unfurned to
secure men for the smelter at Northport. He has cast his drag net over the states of Minnesota, Colorado, California, Oregon, Missouri, Montana, or, practically, over the entire
country west of the Mississippi river, and has been able to start but two of the five furnaces
at the Northport smelter. This is the success he boasts. He claims the strike is at an end.
It has only begun.
So far we have taken as true his statements that he has two furnaces in operation at
Northport. We wished to prove how futile are his statements by his own evidence.
The real truth is he has never had two furnaces in successful operation at one time for 24
hours. They have produced no matte for shipment up till August 25. He claims to have
shipped one carload on August 21. That it was the highest in value of any shipment made.
The records of the railroad at Northport fail to show any trace of matte shipments on
or about August 21, If any shipment was made it was via the Columbia river route and
rests at the bottom of the river.
He also claims to be able to start the mines in Rossland. Apparently he does not
realize'there is an alien act in Canada, for of the 30 employes now at the mines all but two
have been brought here in direct violation of this law and will be deported inside of two
weeks. He has in eight weeks been able to secure but two scabs in Canada. Nowi if the
Canadian people should, to his surprise, enforce their laws, even if it does hurt the feelings
of Bernard Macdonald, how long will it take to start the mines at the ratio of two every
eight weeks?   And as yet there is not a miner in the lot.
We are not deceiving the miners of Rossland by false promises. We hope for an
honorable settlement of the difficulties here. The sooner the better it will suit the union
miners of Rossland. But if it is necessary to continue this fight to its final end the union
miners and smeltermen will stand shoulder to shoulder for carrying on the fight.
This war was forced on these unions. We entered the struggle full of a belief in the
justice of our cause and confident of our ability to carry it successfully to an end. This belief has never been shaken for an instant, and certainly is not when we consider the almost
unbroken line of successes which have thus far attended our efforts.

■ -. THE EVENING WORLD. ROSSLAND, B. C, OCTOBER 22, tooi
"Drilling Hissed Holes.'
There's a death-dealing custom
Abroad in the land,
I can see by the verdicts
On every hand.
No fires lit with coal oil,
Nor rushing <he goals,
Are so fearfully fatal
As drilling missed holes.
When bosses are planning
Some trouble to meet,
They fill up their mines
With some cheap tenderfeet;
And the juryman's mirth
Ho oan scarcely control,
For he knows it's so easy
To drill a missed hole.
The miners at Bullion
Were out on a strike,.
And they watched a performance
They didn't quite like—   s
A chcechaco preparing
To light his firBt charge—
Hia experience was small
But his confidence large.
Ho saw the crowd smiling,
And cursed the whole lot,
And swore he knew all
About lighting a shot.
The boys said they noticed
His fuse was too short,
But he lit itl   They know,
For thev heard the reportl
The tales were conflicting,
The jury looked droll,
But they found the "departed
Had drilled a missed hole."
Last week, at the quarry
On Bessemer Hill,
A Swede disappeared
with a keg and a drill,
And the papers came out
With a long rigmarole
'Neath a caption like this—
"Miner Drills a Missed Hole."
The Polander, Rhyewhieki, '
Who worked on the grade,
Spit his fuse, but it missed,
And the work was delayed.
So Mickey, the boss,
In a terrible stew,
Told Rhyewhiski to
Try again, p. d. q.
Tbe explosion was fearful,
Excitement ran high,
While the smoke and rock-shower
Darkened the sky.
It was hard to tell what
Had become of the Pole,
But tho verdict was eaBy—
"He drilled a missed hole."
An Italian was seen
Going into a drift
With a charge such as only
A burro might lift.
On his hat were his candle
And piece of capped fusel
Yet some people expressed
Ureat surprise at the news
Of the crash which soon  followed!
And then on the street
It was learned the destruction
Was almost complete.
The rails were all twisted,
The timbers all wrecked;
But signs of poor Tony
Were hard to detect.
They found some old rags
And a spoonful of brains;
The "intelligent jury"
Who "viewed the remains,"
In their kindness of heart
Did the poor wife console
.By "finding" her husband
Had "Drilled a Missed Hole."
There are verdicts of "heart failure," "apoplexy,"
"Temporary insanity," "'felo de Be,"
But the juries "find" nothing
So dear to their souls
As "unanimous verdicts"
Of "Drilling Missed Holes."
—Prospector.
"You are getting ridiculous,"
said the second speaker irritably.
"What was is, and what is is. Is
was is, or is is was?
"Don't be foolish I Was may be
it but it is not was. Is was was,
but if was was is, then is isn't is,
or was wasn't was. Is was is, waB
is, was is was, isn't it? Bnt if is
is waB then—'
"Listen, Is is, was was, and is
was and was is; therefore iB was
is, and was was was, and is is
was."
"Shut up, will youl I've gone by
my station already I"
And there was silence for a
while.
Contracts are to be let in the
Big Four for 25 and 50 feet respectively in each tunnel. Inquire
at office near B. C. Oil Warehouse

A cat, long a pet in a small hotel
in Manitou Springs, saved seventeen lives not long ago. Fire broke
out and no one but the cat dis
covered it. It rushed to the bed of
the landlady, sprang of her face
and scratched until she awoke,
after which it rushed through the
house caterwauling and scratching
at the doors. The building burned
so rapidly that the guests made
their escape attired in blankets,
Among those saved were two babies
The rescued. have voted the cat a
medal and think nine lives none too
many to be enjoyed by an animal
who saved seventeen.

In Cincinnati, aocording to the

machihists, started to quiz a striker in the presence of Attorneys
Eugeue Poioey and W. H. Gaz-
ley.
"How much do you get, my good
man?"
"Two dollars a day."
"Two dollars a day. Why, that
is good wages. What did you do
with it?"
"I'll tell you, but don't let it
out," said the striker satirically.
"After I paid taxes, assessments,
living cxpeiices for a family of six,
I placed the balanco in a flour barrel, and when it was full I headed
it up and began on another barrel.
My cellar is full of barrels of money."

Keep Your
Eye on Meteor
i
METEOR
is the new high-grade mining
camp in the south half of the Col-
ville Reservation, seven miles west of the Columbia river, eight miles southwest of Daisy and 28
miles by good road from Meyers Falls. The town-
site is in the centre of tne rich aggregation of
mines comprising the Meteor, Stray Dog, White
Swan and Given groups, all of which are working
in high-grade shipping ore. A great number of
very promising properties are opening up in the
vicinity. It is surrounded by a splendid agricultural, fruit growing and stock raising country,
unequalled in the northwest, and has a splendid
supply of timber for building and mining purposes, together with unlimited water power near
It has already, besides a store, a number of buildings in course of erection, and a telephone service,
saw mill, etc., will be in operation within a short
time. Meteor is a high-grade oamp of the real
Leadville type, the ores mined being gold, silver,
lead and oopper. Picked assays have given as high
as $140,000 to the ton, the average of the camp
being about $35. You can't afford to forget Meteor.
Now is your time to get in at bed-rock prices.
