Magistrate's Decision in a Music
Hall Case of Rowdyism.
London,   July ' 20,—London   is
fast emptying, the recent lieat wave
having given a final kick to the
dying season. Great expectations,
socially, are entertained for Cowes,
where the presence of the King and
Queen will give that necessary
lillip which has heen wanting in
overy fixture this year.
King Edward has chartered his
old yacht, the Britannia, for the
Cowes regatta and most of the hab-
itucsof Cowes will he there.
One London paper hears "that
the American yachts which will he
at Cowes are expected to heat anything ever seen before in the roads
for luxury and splendor."
According lo the latest interpretation of the British law, the aud
ience in a theatre can throw stones
at the stage with impunity. A
rowdy has heen hauled up in a police
court charged with throwing stones
in a music hall at Hoxton. Six or
seven stones were produced in court
which had heen picked up from the
stage, hut the magistrate held that
in the ahgence of any witness having heen struck hy the stones or
individually pelted hy the thrower
the prisoner must go free.
Cuttle Dying lu Quebec.
Quebec, July 20.—According

The Yukon Labor Protective and
Improvement Union of DawBon
City have issued an appeal to labor and wage earners generally to
stay away from the territory in
order that no laborer may be misled or deceived into coming to tlie
Yukon territory to work for wages
under contract or otherwise.
The establishment of a wage of
$5 per daj and board by this union,
as the going wage for labor in the
Yukon, should not deceive anyone
who reads the same. Five dollars
is established as the minimum
wage of tbe territory, because it is
the lowest possible living wage.
There are scarcely five per cent, of
the laborers in this territory whai
would remain here if that wage
was their only inducement.
The very greatest length of time
in each year that a laborer can
hope for employment is nine
months and the average is much
below that figure. When not working hoard costs at an average $25
per week, running from $20 to $30
pa-r week. While engaged in seeking work the expenses amount, up
to as high as $35 per week, in addition to having to walk uiany
miles a day and pack.your uullit.
The cost of a laboring man's
necessities in tbe Yukun in far
more than the difference of wages in,
say, Hutte and the Yukon.
The union ask the cooperation
of all unions in tbe endeavor to
have the Yukon labor problem
properly

crowded.

London, July 20.—The dinner
given last night to Herbert Asquith
by thirty Liberal members of the
house of commons and three hundred and seventy other public men,
which had been looked forward to
for a month as an event that might
result in the organized recession of
the Liberal imperialists,was a quiet
and even dreary affair. Mr. As-
quiths' speech had been Bpoiled by
the incidents of the week,especially
by Lord Rosebery'B letter to the
Liberal club and by his speech
later before that body.
Mr. Asquith spoke with deference
of Sir Henry Campbell Bannerman
but did not mention Lord Rosebery. He re-affirmed in moderate
phrases his protest against the Liberals identifying themselves with
the pro-Boer group, declaring that
Liberals must recognize the empire
and its needs and then go in for
domestic reforms. The speech is[gen-
erally regarded as not in any way
altering the situation of the Liberals.
Lord Rosebery's allusion before
tlie city Liberal club yesterday to
ploughing his furrow is considered
cryptic but as seeming to mean his
possible re-entrance upon the responsibility of party leadership at a
later period.
Th* Mil,a I Trade.
St. Louis, July 20.—An international convention of delegates
from the various Metal Trades'

Canada will convene here Sunday

Negro Labor.
New Orleans, July 20.—Two men
have come here from Pittsburg to
get negro labor to take the places
of the strikers in the steel mills of
the United States Steel Corporation. They secured fifty men and
have received reports from agents
in Anniston and Bessemer, Ala.,
that forty men have been secured
there.

General Smith is in receipt of a

text is given as follows:
"I take the liberty to inform
you that I have a scheme lo convey the mails to Europe within
two days. 1 should like to snhmil
the idea to the government anil
if it can he carried through should
ask some compensation."
The postmaster general has asked for further   information.
New York, July 20.—The British steamer Reading, now lying at
Jersey City, has just arrived from
St. Helena and Ascension. Captain Fishley of the vessel speaking
of the Boer prisoners on the island
says:
"There are just 4700 prifmerB,
there are of these 17 per cent
Transvaalers and Orange Free
staters. Thc other 83 per cent is
made up of other nationalities of
this order: Scandinavians, Germans, Italians, a few Russians,
Irish and even Englishmen, a
handful of Scotchmen, a few American's, a few Greeks and scatterings from other nationalities."
"Tbe number of Scandinavians
is surprising. 1 found that many
of the Scandinavians held masters
and mates certificates. There were
many desertions from Scandinavian ships in South African ports.
"At the St. Helena club, JameB-
town, where the Boer officers
write, play billiards, alrink and
smoke und lounge. I talked with
Colonel Sehiel, the German artillery expert. It is difficult to judge
his age. His hair and mustache
are snow white and his countenance ruddy and healthy. Col.
Sehiel is disgusted with his long
imprisonment und bus offered .his
services to the British. He told
me thut In his opinion the Boers
should have surrendered after tho
capture of 1'retoria.
"Cronje is also weary of his detention but says little, 1 was
told that tin* proportion ol the
native Boers are representative
of their entire army."

A DISCLAIMER WANTED.
Some six weeks ago when the
World announced that F. Aug
Heinze had disposed of the Rossland Daily Miner tpTBemard MacDonald and his London friends,
some good people here doubted the
accuracy of the statement and il
will be recalled that the morning
paper published a famous dispatch
from Butte signed by D, J. Fitzgerald—Heinze's man "Friday"—in
all Rossland Miner matters—in
which he said "you may state" that
no transfer of the Miner had taken
place or was contemplated.
No further official statement has
appeared in the Miner in connection with the matter, and the
public have been led to infer that
the violent attacks upon the principles of unionism which from time
have appeared in the columns of
the tnorning paper have had the
direct sanction and approval of Mr.
Heinze.
If the supposition is untrue M r.
Heinze has only himself to thank
for the use which has been made of
his acknowledged ownership of the
Miner, and if he really desires to
disown the views against unionism
and organized labor generally,
whicb have been so industriously
circulated by the Rossland Daily
Miner, he       should        insert
in that charmingly conducted
paper, a notice over his own signature telling us all, when—just
when—he ceased to control the editorial utterances, and if he still
has any strings on tlie paper.
As Mr. Fitzgerald's announcement was so eminently clear and
satisfactory when it was published,
we suggest that his chief's disclaimer now, should be equally clear and
should be accorded a place of honor on the front page of the Miner—
with a border.
Under all tin- circumstances related-people may be excused if they
continue to connect Mr. Heinze
with (In- violent attacks against
unionism made bythe Daily Miner
—whatever the real facts uf Iho
case may be—until he publicly disclaims all ownership in the paper
in the manner we have suggested,
and for his own good, the Butte
gentleman cannot do this too plainly or too quickly.
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
"Alert," the stock exchaugegossip
of the London Financier and Bul-
lionist wriling about the true position of the Le Roi company, says :
"The Le Roi position, so far as 1
can gather, is that a gentleman of
the name of Hill—curiously synonymous wilh that of Mr. Morgan's
friend has been elected lo the
board, and lhal tin- .Miininis of
Dufferin has resigned. So far I
have not seen any official notification of this fact, but it may be
taken an goBpcl, Tbe Financier and
Bullionist being the only financial
paper which has ever given the
true particulars of the Le Roi position. The end of it all is that the
era of Whitaker Wright influence
is departing, and that a new management will arise which will show
what Le Roi can do. Everything
has been arranged in the most
amicable fashion, and precisely on
the line laid down by this journal,
i. e., the Yankees have got control."
The Victoria Colonist quite inadvertently hits the mark when it
asserts that the Rossland strike
has been engineered by a man
whose sole qualification lay in the
fact that he has proved himself a
troublesome person   whatever   he
lived, and who in this instftnoe has
overreached himself. Who oould
have named Barney to the wide
awake paper at the capital. Unaided, it never could have nosed
him out.
The Toronto Globe, commenting upon the strike situation here,
complains that the Associated
Press dispatches give very meagre
details of the matter, and adds:
"The Rossland Miner declares that
the men were contented, but have
been worked upon by outside agitators. This is, of course, a common allegation in regard to all
strikes, and it would be unsafe tu
pay much attention to it until
more is known of the facts. Disinterested visitors to Rossland four
or five years ago remarked that the
conditions under which the men
worked left much to be desired."
One good effect of the industrial
troubles in this province at the
present time has been to turn public attention to the probable advantages of compulsory arbitration
as a reasonable solution of the
strike difficulty and labor and capital questions generally.

THE EVENING WORLD, ROSSLAND, B. C, JULY ao, iqoi
THE MANIFESTO
Rosebery Explains Recent
Utterance to Liberals;
IT WAS ORGANIZED HYPOCRISY
The Government Have Made Many
Wholesale Blunders—The War
Must Be Triumphantly Closed.
■VTTHE CHURCHES TOMORROW
London, July, 20.—Speaking at
the City Liberal club thin afternoon
Lord Roscheiy remarked that he
wrote the ruut-ut manifesto because
after the meeting in Queen's hull
and at the the Reform club, unless
some clear repudiation-of the statement regarding the war was made,
it was impossible for the Liberal
party to continue to exist as a
sound force, appealing to the highest sympathies of the country.
On the question of the war, his
lordship said his starting point
waB that in spite of the Jameson
raid and.in spite of the South African committee, the BoerB had invaded the dominions of the late
Queen, and from that moment although he had criticised the methods of the government, yet on the
main issue to carry the war to a
triumphant close they WJuld have
his warmest support.
The failing, of the government
should be the opportunity for the
opposition. If the Liberals would
not undertake the task another
party would be created for the purpose. Lord. Rosebery said, however, that he did not despair of
seeing the Liberal party purged of
all anti-national elements, that
the country waB ripe for a domestic program and that he believed
the revolutionized Liberals would
yet breath new life into the dry
bones of the public office.
As to the statement that he
would not voluntarily return to
the political arena, Lord Rosebery explained that that had-been
his attitude sinoe his   resignation.
His. Lordship concluded by saying that at present he must proceed along and plough -his furrow
alone; but that before he got to
the end of his furrow it was possible that he might find himself not
aloue.
Lord Roseberry said the vote of
confidence in Sir lit-nry Campbell
Hiinuermuu, the Liberal leader,
passed at the Reform Club meeting,
was, in the Earl Beaconstield
phrasji) . "organized hypocrisy/'
and that his reason for disturbing
the olympian repose created by his
vote of confidence was that the
position was as perilous to the
party as to the present government,
and there whh no impartial observer who remembered any government which had crowded such a
frightful assemblage of error
weakness, -and wholesale blu nd ers
into its administration.

To tlie Citizens cmdJBusiness Men of Rossland anil Vicinity and 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 more disastrous to the business or non-combattant class around which
the 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, igoo, this city has apparently enjoyed industrial peace ; yet all who are conversant with the industrial affairs of
Rossland for the 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 ot 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 ns by the last half of Article 15 of
the agreement of April, iqoo; thus preventing us from refilling our ranks depleted by loss
of 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 satisfactorily 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
the 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.
EXECUTIVE BOARD
ROSSLAND MINERS' UNION No. 38, W. F. M
