New Tariff Framed to Meet a Falling Market—Some Unfavorable Features.
Nelson, Dec. 27.—With the first'
of the year the mine owners of the
Slocan will be given a reduction of
$4 per ton in the treatment rate
upon their ores which carry more
than twenty per cent. lead.
The new rates are based upon
ores carrying twenty per cent. lead.
The present rate for the treatment
of ore of this class is $15; by the
new tariff it will be $11. For ore
carrying more than twenty per
cent, lead there is the same provision of adding 20 cents to the
rate for each per cent, of lead over
twenty. In the case of ore carrying forty per cent, lead the treatment rate would work out $15
which is just $4 lower than the
rates charged by the smelters this
year for the treatment of the same
grade of ore.
These rates are much more
favorable than many of the mine
owners were led to expect, but they
are not as good as they appear on
the surface, as there are a number
of new conditions attached to them
which did not apply to the old rate.
All the delicacies of   the season
can be found at the Kootenay. tf

A SUICIDE AT GREENWOOD
Charles A. Vedder Takes  His
Own Life.
SUPPOSED HE WAS DESPONDENT
A Well-Known Insurance Agent-Leaves a Wife and
Four Children-No Cause Assigned for the Rash
Deed-Pete Larson Injured by Explosion.
Greenwood, Dec. 27.—Lying on
a couch unconscious with hiB life's
blood slowing ebbing away from
a bullet hole in his head is Charles
W. Vedder, a prominent business
man of this city.
Absolutely no cause can be assigned for self destruction other
than a temporary fit of despondency. Vedder was found sitting
in a chair in his back office by
John W. Hartline at I o'clook. At
his feet, bearing sufficient testimony to the terrible tragedy of
self destruction, was an old ruBty
38 Smith and Weston revolver of
five cartridges in which two were
exploded. The bullet penetrated
the right temple above the ear
settling in the base of the brain.
The Doctors after examining  the
wound pronounced it fatal.
Vedder was born at Schenectady,
N. Y., 42 years' ago. He came
here from Spokane a year ago
forming a partnership with Ralph
Cunningham in the general insurance business. He is a Mason and
a member of the Knights of Pythias.
Mrs. Vedder is in a precarious
condition. Vedder leaves four
children.
Peter Lar-on was taken to the
hospital early this morning.
While at work loosening frozen
ore, it is supposed his piok struck
a small lot of dynamite. An explosion followed, the flying ore
severely bruising Larson. Injuries
are thought unlikely to prove serious.

PLEASINGEVENT
Entertainment at Miners.'
Union Hall.
XMAS IN SONG AND STORY
Short Addresses by Rupert Bulmer,
Rev. Sanford and James Wilks—
A Splendid Program.
Miners' Union hall was filled to
the doors' last evening by an enthusiastic audience who vigorously
pplauded the program rendered.
Rupert Bulmer, president of tbe
Rossland Miners' Union, occupied
the chair and in making the opening address gave a brief account Of
the first Christmas Day, and what
it meant for us all at the present
time. The address was an appropriate and thoughtful one, and
was very well received.
Rev. A. M. Sanford made a few
characteristic and appropriate remarks on the Christmas season,
and James Wilks, Vice-President
of the W. F. M.. gave an address
touching on the labor situation in
Rossland at tbe present time, and
referring to the festival that was
being celebrated the world over.
Mr. Wilks was roundly applauded
at the conclusion of his address.
The carol Singing was excellent
and was greatly enjoyed by the
audience, who applauded the singers again and again.
Miss Preston's rendition in tab-
lean form of "N«arer My God to
Thee," accompanied by a quartette
was a finished performance.
Little Misses Olive and Hazel
Juliff were exceedingly good in
their dialogue and in singing
Bonnie Little Burnie," and both
pieces called forth well earned encores.
The solos by Mrs. Edward King
and William Richmond were particularly well received, and worthy
of more than passing mention.
Mr. Patterson's recitations were
well received as were the piano
solos rendered by Mr. Coffin and
the solo by Miss Laura Jewell.
The whole program was given
without any of the rather annoying
pauses that sometimes happen, and
the large audience dispersed very
well pleased with the entertainment.

HON. WM. MULOCK.
Citizen and Country of Toronto
commenting on the recent banquet
to Postmaster General Mulock in
that city, draws attention to the
absence at the banquet of nearly
one hundred Trades and Labor
delegates who were invited to take
seats on the platform.
Speaking at the banquet the
premier declared:
"Mr. Mulock has introduced
amongst us the great principle of
of the recognition of the laboring
classes entitled to a fair share of
what they help to create."
The Toronto paper quoted does
not agree with Sir Wilfrid's view
of Mr. Mulock's achievements and
thinks the absence of the delegates
referred to demonstrates what organized labor thinks of the matter.
Citizen and Country concludes
a good article by stating exactly
how organized labor in Canada regards Mr. Mulock as postmaster
general and Mr. Mulock as minister of labor.   It says:
"A word for Mulock. He has
his faults as a politician and other
wise, but the present is an occasion
to give him praise for creditable
service. He has been the the best
postmaster-general Canada has
yet had. The service has been
vastly improved by him and the
financial results are very satisfactory.
"We commend Mr. Mulock as
postmaster general, but not as minister of labor. His services on behalf of labor are neither more sincere nor satisfactory than those of
the Conservatives in office before
him.  All is not gold that glitters."
NOTES AND COMMENTS.

place of "municipal arrears for

It is stated that the machinists'
strike in Chicago, which has involved 400 union workmen since it
started seven months ago, is about
to be settled. Conferences are now
being held by leaders on both sides,
and it iB expected that an agreement will be reached and ratified
within the next few days. It is
said the Aller-Chalmers company
has agreed to return to the nine-
hour day, which leaves the question
of wages, the strikers to be taken
back and the disposition of the
men who took the strikers' places,
to be decided.

A good deal of local interest has
been taken in the civic figures for
the year up to December 21, as
given by the Would yesterday.
We invite criticism on the details
given from city ratepayers generally.
Hall Caine writes to the British
Weekly that the precepts of Christ
are good as politics as well as
good as religion, and that the worst
anomalies of modern life come
by the fact that, while as individuals we try to be' Christian men,
as nations we are too often content
to behave as barbarians.
The following is a copy of a resolution, adopted by the Trades and
Labor Council of Halifax, N. S.,
and forwarded to Premier Laurier:
Whereas, it is an unwritten understanding that the members of the
government of Canada are as nearly as possible representatives of
specifically large interests as well as
representative of the several provinces; and,
Whereas, the working and wage-
earning classes of the Dominion—
its wealth producing elements, and
forming a large proportion of tie
electorate of the whole country—
have no direct representative in
the Federal Counpil of the nation;
and,
Whereas, there now exists a
vacancy in the Cabinet forming the
Dominion Government, and likely
to be rilled by a British Columbian:
therefore, be it,
Resolved, that the secretary be,
and is hereby instructed, to bring
this very important subject to the
immediate attention of the Right
Honorable the Premier of Canada,
and praying him that a direct representative of the working and
wage-earning elements of the country—a man out of their own ranks
and possessing their general and
full confidence—be taken into and
assigned a portfolio in his Cabinet.

A Strike Settled.
Lynn, Mass., Dec. 27.—The
strike of the employes of the American Exposition company line
was settled, tonight, and afterwards
the company was cheered, and in
return the men recieved a Christmas present of $5 in gold each.
At a meeting of the teamsters' union the Exposition company agreed
to give the men $52 a month for a
10 hour day. The agreement suggested by the board of trade as
arbitrator was unanimously accepted.

Chicago, Dec. 27.—Arthur Egan
the 17-year-old hero of twenty-
three life-saving exploits in Lake
Michigan, has been decorated by

in recognition of the daring of

Egan is the first resident of the
United States to receive such honors. He is a British subject by
reason of his birth in Canada.

DECLINE
IN COPPER
W.  C. Jones   Gives   His
Opinion on the Cause-
Lost Confidence.
W. C. Jones, former representative in congress and one of the attorneys for F. August Heinzie in
the latter's war with the Amalgamated Copper company, is in Spokane spending the holidays with
hiB family,
Mr. Jones has given his views
on the reason for the recent decline in Amalgamated copper stock.
He said:
"The reason for this decline, in
my judgment, is that the investing public has come to realize that
the actual value of the property
would not justify a valuation of
raore than 50 cents on the dollar
on the stock. This realization has
brought the stock down. It is, in
my opinion, the main reason for
the slump.
' "Another important reason
which has contributed to the rapid
and continuous fall of the Amalgamated stock is the growing conviction in the mind of the investing public that the Amalgamated
Copper company is an unlawful organization. It is absolutely bo.
Its articles of incorporation show
that it was organized for the purpose of controling other corporations
through the purchase of a majority
of the Btock of such corporations.
"This is not only unlawful, but
at common law it was criminal.
Moreover, under the constitution
and laws of Montana it is crimi-
nal. The public is beginning to
to understand tbis fact, and that
fact constitutes another big reason
for the fall in the stock?"

Christmas gift an amount equivalent to an increase of ten per

Borden took off ten per cent, advance in wages whish had been in
effect for two weeks.

THE.
Editor Evening World.
Mr. Editor:—I wish to give the
public a little information in regard to Richard Hooper, one of the
men who has lately returned to
work at the War Eagle mine
Many may believe that Hooper
was compelled by necessity to leave
the ranks of the union and break
his obligation.
He left a good position at Ymir
to come to Rossland to assist the
company in their attempt to crush
the union, but we believe the defection of such men as Hooper will
strengthen instead of weaken th
Miners' Union of Rossland. He
had received liberal support from
the union, previous to his going to
Ymir, and after he was working
there the union continued the aid
to his family. He has always assisted the corporations to crush the
workingmen, when it would be to
his advantage, afterwards seeking
to establish himself in their confidence when the trouble was
settled.
At one time he worked at the
Cleveland mine at Ishpeming,
Mich., during a strike, and then as
a penance to square himself with
his fellow-miners, he drank from
the horse trough in the city square
in the presence of a thousand assembled miners. It is evident
from the course pursued by Dickie
in Rossland that his repentence
was not sincere.
The following has been suggested
as a hymn for his use in his weekly devotions:
"Must I be carried to the skies
On flowery beds of ease,
While others fight to win the prize
And* sail through bloody seas."
