The angel of death slill hovers
over the Milhurne home in Buffalo
where the stricken head of the American Republic lies in a precarious
condition.
The late reports received during
the night and early this morning
announced that u dangerous relapse
had taken place with most alarming symptoms of heart failure and
general collapse.
ll was slated that the change for
the worse was caused by the failure
of the patient to digest thc food
given him.
At !) o'clock this morning a report was received here via Spokane
that the president was dead, and
the news quickly spread all over
the cily.
Immediately tho flags were run
up and half   masted   strangely re
calling the appearance of the city
the morning that the news of the
Queen's death was received here
just about the same hour of the
day.
A little later came contradiction
and positive denial of the former
report, and all the flage went up to
the mast head.
NEWS FROM

Northport, Sept. 13.—[Special.]
—Within the past 21 hours seventeen men have walked out of the
smelter stockade, and fourteen of
these went south on the Spokane
train today.
The fourteen referred to neglected to settle up their board bills before leaving Northport and the
company is out just that amount.

THAT CABLE
MESSAGE
Comment on the "Miner's'
Cable-Clearly a Whitaker Wright Document.
The cable kindly sent to the English papers by Mr. Bernard Macdonald's cable editor at his master's bidding was apparently very
quickly sized up.
The London iittllionist in referring to the occurrence says:
"Our esteemed conteinpaniiy
"The Financial Times," which has
hitherto treated the Le Roi crisis
with dignified and judicious reserve, came out yesterday wilh a
special cable from Rossland describing the situation there intern s
even more lurid than Mr. Whitaker
Wright's. Though not directly addressed to the Le Roi shareholders,
it was admitted to be intended for
them. From tho fact of ils appearing on the day before the meeting it may be assumed to have
special reference to tbat event.
Rut from the similarity of the
warning given, and even of the
terms employed, to those of Mr.
Whitaker Wright's letter of resignation, it may be further inferred
that he and his friends were not
wholly ignorant of the move.
Obviously the whole scheme is
just a little too previous."

is hardly necessary now to refer to

[Applause.]
I''r«,i;li. vMIo'h Reputation.
The extraordinary general meeting of the Le Roi Mining company, limited, called pursuant to a
requisition of certain shareholders
was held on Thursday, August
29th, at Winchester House, Old ,, , . . ,
Broad, street, E. C. for the purpose j rSP«akl"8 of "»« P">P°*»d new
of considering and, if thought fit, f "»*<£•-«* c'™n «a.d: "So
... _.    far as Mr. Frecheville is concerned,
I only know that his reputation is
of the very best—a man of great integrity, a very capable mining
engineer, and a man who has
been entrusted by important financial houses in London to report for
them. (Hear hear.) That
is the man we want at
the present moment. We may
have at the mine at the present
time a man who is possibly the
best mining engineer in the world
—I know nothing about him—but
if he is a man of that character
there is not the slighter do'i'it lh_j,
his services will be retained."
The l'_|ml>Io "IJ. "
"We only ask you now" continued the chairman, "to elect this
gentleman, whom we consider to
be the proper person to send out to
the'property to examine into the af-
passing resolutions removing Mr.
Whitaker Wright from his oflice of
director and, if necessary, other
directors from the board.
Mr. Ulll'a Po-ltlon.
Mr. L. Aarons, the holder of
3000 shares was called upon to
preside over the meeting.
Mr. H. J. Hill: This meeting
is called to consideroert^in specific
resolutions. Of these there is now
no necessity to consider the first,
because your late chairman (Mr.
Whitaker Wright) has resigned.
(Applause.) Since this meeting
was called twt> other of your directors have resigned—Mr, Rucgg
and Mr. Mills.    | Applause.]
AVIlllt  Mr.  All run* Said,
Tne chairman made a lengthy
address in which he reviewed the
past history of the company and
the well-known incidents which I fairs of the company, and put them
led up to the calling of the on a satisfactory basis. If we find

cir ular had made many wiong l)e tl<)ne- we tr,18t him to remedy
and improper statements which ll'i if> on tlle Other hand, he finds
were utterly untrue.
Literally ■ _.. i...l out.
"I should not have referred to
this matter" said the chairman
"only for this reason; that in his
.bitter anger at having been beaten
•io badly, and seeing the number of
proxies that were coming in out
favor, Mr. Wright felt that if he
did not retire from the board he
would he literally kicked out. We
have paid a pretty high price for
the shares we have acquired, believing wc were going into a valuable mine, and we have tbat belief
still."   (Applause).
"We were not inclined to allow
the management of the property to
remain in the hands of the gentleman who has utterly wrecked all
the properties with which he bus
b'en connected In this country."
(Applause.)
The l.e lt>>l Ctintml.
"Wc have got rid of Mr. Whitaker Wright from the control of
the co ii] an , and two of the other
directors have also seen fit to
resign. The total shares of the
company number '200,000, and wc !
have received proxies and votes to|
tho extent of 141,189 shares.
(Cheers.) We have received revokes of those proxies to the extent
of 0751 votes, leaving a balance in
our favor of 131,438 votes. (Applause.) In addition to the 0751
votes, which have been revoked,
Mr. Whitaker Wright's nominees
received 5512 votes; bo that the
total number are 131,488 voles to
our Bide and 15,2115 voles to Mr.
Whitaker Wright's side. (Applause.) I think that disposes of
any arguments which could be
brought up in favor of  Mr. Whit-
Mr. Macdonald is working well in
the interest of the company, he
will keep him in his position."
Mr, Lionel Robinson then formally proposed the election of Mr.
R. J. Frecheville as a director, and
the motion was seconded by Mr.
Lionel Harris.
The Chairman: Perhaps Mr.
Frecheville will say a few words
before we put his name to the
vote.
What I le.hevlllc Said.
Mr. Frechevill, who was received
with applause, said: Ahout four
weeks ago I was approached by the
holders of some 40,000 shares, with
a view to my being proposed jib a
director of the Le R ii company.
I agreed to my name being proposed on the condition, as 1 am
myself a mining engineer, and
have been practically all my life,
that 1 should first have an opportunity of proceeding loiirilish Columbia to thoroughly examine the
property* and satisfy myself as to
the capabilities, and how it shoulil
be best handled in thc interests of
the company. [Hear, hear.] For
Ibis purpose, if you shoulil elect
me, I would proceed with as little
delay as possible to British Columbia.
A Searching Kuquiry.
1 would searohlngly inquire into

it as far as possibles in fact, that is

MR. MACDONALD'S   PAPER.
The Would publishes today "a
fairly lengthy account from nn
English paper of the recent meet-
in London of Le Roi shareholders.
We have already referred to
Whitaker Wright's frantic attempt
to prevent at all cost the election
of Robert James Frecherville the
nominee of the callers of the extraordinary meeting, his attack
on H. J. Hill, a director who was
elected in July last against Whitaker Wright's wishes,and the libelous charge made by the discredited
Stock Jobber against Henry Bratnober, over the shoulder of Manager Macdonald.
Whitaker Wright did not dare
face the meeting, but contented
himself with sending a telephonic
letter kindly suggesting the action
the meeting should take.
The contending sides lined up at
the meeting as follows: The anti-
Whitaker Wright party held 131,-
438 votes and the Whitaker
Wright element 15,203, out of a
possible total of 200,000. As the
chairman put it "This effectually
disposes of any argument which
could be brought up in favor of
Mr. \^it_i_er Wright's management."
Thc prompt and unanimous
election of Mr. Frecheville followed
as a matter of course, the members of the discredited faction present offering no opposition, being
apparently cowed into submission
by the overwhelming majority
against them.
Mr. Frecherville on being called
upon addressed the meeting and
outlined the course ho intended to
pursue. His frank statement
makes it clear what will now follow. Tho Miner will probably steer
clear of such expressions as "so-
called investigations" and "pretended visits" when making the
daily reference to the strike situation in future. In discussing the
probable outcome of the meeting
the World has all along expressed
the opinion that if the shareholders really wished to consult their
own best interests they would send
out a competent man to thoroughly
investigate the position of affairs
here and at Northport and this is
precisely what has heen decided on.
Up to the present time the manager of the Le Roi has been able to
place his distorted and unfair version of the situation before both
the shareholders and tho directorate and the men have heen unable
to obtain a hearing. Now at least
the union will have an opportunity of presenting the true facts of
their case before a fair tribunal anil
in addition a searching investigation will he instituted into many
matters indirectly affecting the
strke situation and very directly
affecting th. interests of the shareholders.
The whole matter will undoubtedly take lime but the only sensible
course possible under the circumstances has been adopted and we
believe that the result of tho investigation, now assured, will demonstrate very clearly the true cause
of all the trouble here and at
Northport.
It is not at all probable that Mr.
Frecheville will undertake to destroy the Miners' union and attack
organized labor in the senseless
wayattempted by the Le Roi manager, and on the contrary we are
already well advised that the men's
views will receive careful consider-
The Rossland Miner this morning contains two kindly references
to the strike situation—though one
has been usually thought sufficient.
It says, with great hesitation, that
the World has suggested the literal
assassination of Mr. Macdonald and
should be held responsible accordingly, and it further suggests to
the merchants that unless the boycott on itself is raised or in some
way done away with its owner will
lie reluctantly compelled to open a
departmental store where the mine
workers can be supplied with all
necessary home comforts at reduced
prices.
Both statements are worthy of
Mr. Macdonald and in entire accord with the "policy" about to be
investigated.

HENRY MORGAN * CO., MONTREAL
"Compared with the Bank of
Montreal Mr. Whitaker Wright in
all his glory was never more than
a fly on the wheel."—London Bul-
lionist. Well, well, the World
never thought of making such a
comparison as this.
Premier Dunsmuir is evidently
of the opinion that Brown is a better color than Green. This will
cause John Houston to see red.—
Star.
The report of the official liquidation of the British America Corporation, of which Whitaker
Wright of London was managing
director and Bernard Macdonald
of Rossland resident manager, is
interesting reading matter, seeing
that both these worthy gentlemen
have said that mining has not
been successful in Rossland, be
cause of the arrogant interference
of tho Miners' union at that place.
The Tribune today contains the
report in full. All that is wanted
to kill the mining industry in this
province, so far as outside capital
is concerned, is a few more disclosures such as is now being made
in the B. A. C. case and whicb
have been made in the War Eagle
and Centre Star mines. No other
mining country on i arth has had so
many mining companies organized
for the purpose of fleecing the public. Yet promoters and managers
of these fraudulent companies have
the unblushing effrontery to proclaim that the non-success of their
ventures was due entirely to the
bad laws of the province and to
the worthlessness of the men working underground.—Nelson Tribune,

To the Citizens and Business Men of Rossland and Vicinity and to thc General Public :
The LeRoi mine manager has been circulating a report that the strike here is practic-
' ally at an end and the mines are about to resume. This reporl 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 careful 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 lias been in force al Northport. The great-
esfclaim 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, li is only ,1 question of simple arithmetic to see that it it takes three'and one-half months to start two furnaces, it will take
eight and three-fourths months before they can have the smeller in operation. Now, if it
takes eight and three fourths months to e the 500 men necessary to  start  the smelter,
it will take twice that many, or seventeen an 1 one-hall, month?, to secure 1000 men for the
mines in Rossland. Or, at the end of twenty-six and one-hall months, if Macdonald lias 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 unturned to
secure men for the smelter at Northport. lie has cast, his drag net over the slates 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. I le 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 _.|
hours. They have produced no matte for shipment up till August 25. lie claims to have
shipped out: 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 matle it was via the Columbia river route and
rests at the bottom ol 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 ;,o employes now at the mines all but two
SEATTLE j 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. Now, if the
Canadian people should, to his surprise, enforce their laws, even ii 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 have every reason to hope that by October 1, ioor, Bernard Macdonald's name will only remain in Rossland as an unpleasant memory. We hope lor an honorable settlement of the difficulties
here. The sooner the better it will suit the union miners ol 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.

from alleged over-valuation.
The assessors of Shasta county
rated the Shasta King mine at
!:.0,-inO, and the King Copper at
120,000; but the company's valuation for the claims was .2400 and
$2300 respectively. Of course we
all know something of tax values;
but $11,000,000. capital for $1700

you would be expected of me. I
never had the pleasure of meeting
Mr. Aarons before; but he has outlined to you exactly what I should
propose to do.
Will Report l.i.l.i.
Then I take it that on my return
to London, with the intimate
knowledge I would have of your
property and smelting works, with
the knowledge I should have gained of the local condition of affairs
resulting from my mining experience, which has extended over a
period of thirty years, in all sorts
of mines—with my trained technical knowledge, I could not fail to
be of advantage to your company.
(Hear, hear.) Anyway, as there
is no one in London, I believe, who
knows your mines, or intimately
knows the condition out there, the
knowledge I gain would certainly
prove a great assistance to the
board in this direction. I think
tnere is nothing further to say
on the subject."
Carried UUAiiliaiously.
The motion appointing Mr.
Frecheville was then put to the
meeting and the chairman announced that it was carried unanimously.
A shareholder asked what was
going to be done at the mine pending Mr. Frecheville's arrival in
Rossland.
Left to Director!.
The chairman:   "All I can   tell
you is that we have nothing whatever to do—I am speaking now   of
the requisitionists who  called  the
meeting—with what   is going on
at the mineB.   We leave   that   in
the   hands of the directors.   We
know we have two of the   old   directors, who will watch our   interests faithfully; we have   elected
third   with   practical   experience,
who will assist them to the best of
his ability.   We must leave it to
these three gentlemen.   The shareholders' interests will be thoroughly
guarded; that is all   we   can   say

giving mining news of Trail Creek

agreed to pay for these.
Appended is a sample "Dalziel"

true, or an attempt at an impartial
statement of tbe situation?
Does tbe RoBsland Hoard of

tbe company and the contractors
whicb involve the mining of 75,000
tons of oro. A large number of
