HOW HE WAS FOOND OOT
Frecheville's Curt Way of Treating* Rounder Macdonald.
THE "TIN GOD" OF THE MANAGERS
Why it Pays to "Magnificently Equip" a  Mine With
Machinery-How Kadish Coated the Trees
With Gold and Why He Did it.
Some of the extracts from J. R.
Frecheville's report to tbe Le Roi
company Bhowing the result of his
recent investigation into Bernard
Macdonald's methods and management of the mine and of the North-
port smelter make extremely interesting and instructive reading.
The Would can only give a very
small portion of this lengthy
document which takes up several
columns of the .Financial Times of
December 27.
In view of Macdonalds reported
"resignation," and other fairy
stories such as the Miner has been
fooling the public with for months
past, Mr. Frecheville's curt reference is simply beautiful. He says:
"On November 2nd last I found
it necessary in your interests to remove Mr. Bernard Macdonald from
the position of general manager of
the Le Roi and to undertake the
duties of his position myself."
Coming to details of bad msin-'i
agement the investigator finds on
the one head of "unnecessary machinery," as follows:
"At the combination shaft there
is a fine Corliss engine, mounted
but not in use, and an electric generator, unmounted. I was told by
the late manager that they had
been purchased to hold as a club
over the head of the West Kootenay Power and Light company so
as tq prevent the company from increasing its rate for power and
light. The cost of this machinery
landed here was $5,300. It will
never be required. The mine is
drained of water by means of pumps
driven by compressed air. These
pumps work about eight hours a
day only, the water being very
light. Nevertheless there arrived
here about a month ago two magnificent electric pumps with the
motors for running them. Their
coBt landed here is $7,278. ThiB
machinery was certainly not wanted, and what makes the matter
worse, is that the dimensions of the
pumps and ily wheels do not admit
of their being let down the shaft.
If ever used they will have to be
cut up into sections. Two skips
were purchased for the old shaft;
they cost $1,019, and will never be
used in your mine. Two cages were
purchased for the combination
shaft at a cost of $1,5H0, but their
dimensions are unsuitable for the
track. Evidently the appetite for
purchasing machinery grows with
feeding.
"My investigation shows that
there has been very great extravagance and looseness of management, resulting in unwarranted expenditure and high working costs;
aleo that under proper control your
property would have paid dividends from the start."
Referring to Northport Mr.
Frecheville sayB: "The metallurgical work has been very bad. By
using a strong blast and a very
light percentage of coke the ore
has been smelted, but at how much
extra cost and at how great a Iobb
in flue dust will never be known.
Amongst the purchased ores smelted were 923 tons of concentrates
from the Baker City sampling
works, assaying 3.27 ounces of gold
per ton. These were often charged
into the furnaces raw without bri
queuing, the result being that a
large percentage of this valuable
material has been carried by the
strong blast through the condensing chambers, up the stack and
scattered over the surrounding
country.
1 "It appears that Bela Kadish is
the owner of the Baker City sampling works, and was thus in the
position of buyer and seller at the
same time, that the more concentrates were used the better it was
for business. * * * * The double
decked calcining furnaces recently
erected by Mr. Kadish at a cost of
$27,354.86 will never be used on
your ores."
On the strike and its cau e, Mr.
Frecheville is refreshing.   He says:
"I have gone carefully into this
matter, interviewing all sorts and
conditions of men, and am of the
opinion that the strike was mainly
brought about by the injudicious
and arbitrary action of Mr. Bela
Kadish, the late manager of your
smelting works at Northport, where
the strike first commenced."
Mr. Frecheville condemns the
retimbering of the old shaft at a
cost of $5500,. and says the shaft
will never be used again, and adds
that 870 feet of the workdone which
cost;$20,664.50 was fornoother purpose than developing Le Roi No.
2, but thc whole cost has been paid
by the Le Roi.
While admitting that the plant
is substantial Mr. FrechevilK-
points out that both it and ihecom-
binaticn shaf' "are out of alt pro
portion to the mine's capacity."
and adds, "they are imposing to
look at; but the extra money lliey
have cost would* have heen belter
appreciated if it had been distributed in dividends."
Further extracts are for the pres
•nt withheld, but will be published
later.

Peter John McKichan, you are no
judge of men.
ANGUS J.
WILL RUN
A Canard in the Miner Is
Very Effectually Disposed of.
In regard to the statement that
Angus J. M_l.(>iiell will be unable
to qualify as alderman for Ward 3,
we wish to slate that after receiving legal advice on this case, we
have decided to make no change in
our candidate, but lo use our best
efforts to secure his election.
P. R. McDonald,
Chairman Executive Committee.
GROWS WORSE EVERY DAY
Eleventh Hour Explanations by
the Financial Genius.
GOOD REASONS FOB CONCEALMENT
Abuse of Opponents the Only Answer-How a Printing Tender Was Awarded Two Weeks Ago—
Turn the Rascals Out.
The Kootenay is   the only first-
class hotel in the city. tf.
If the chairman of last year's
finance committee had given us
the civic balance sheet in due
course and in good time the electors could have gone over the figures and listened to what Mr. Clute
had to say about them. But when
a plot is made to deliberately conceal and cover up past dealings
what confidence can any ratepayer
have in ''explanations" at this late
hour?
The explanations explain nothing further than the unpleasant
fact that Mr. Clute has exceeded
the city revenue for 1901 by over
$12,000 and that the water works
account has a deficit of over $9000,
and all the belated explanations
will not explain these facts away,
j y Whitaker Wright" bookkeeping
and financial methods may go in
London but the ratepayers should
punish any attempt to introduce
them into our city affairs.
It has been very generally admitted, even by his warmest supporters, that Jack Clute is perhaps
"not much account on finance, and
may be a trifle weak on administration generally," but it is still
claimed for this supposed financial
genius tbat at least he has "ability" of a sort. Here is a Bamplo
of his ability. When the voters
list was given out for publication
two weeks ago three tenders were
put in by equally responsible parties—the Would office not tendering. The middle tender in place of
the loweBt was accepted, and when
un explanation was demanded Mr.
Clute said: "We have our own
reasons for accepting the highest
tender and what our reasons may
be, is none of your business."
The "none of your business"
idea runs bo strongly in the "grey
matter" of the clique which is
fighting to keep a tight hold of the
spoils of oflice, that they really can
not understand why anyon should
object to it. Their policy throughout has been and iB today one of
flagrant favoritism in handling
city inonieB and after four years of
feeding at the public crib they see
no reason why they should be disturbed.
The oorrupt system lately turned
down in Vancouver should be
swept out here if we aro to make
revenue and expenditure balance,
and if we are to have public affairs
conducted along decent lines.
A civio administration that openly seeks to conceal its record, and
to hide from the ratepayers the
real financial position of the city
should not be tolerated fnr a moment.
Mr. Clute in t e Miner this
morning charges Peter John McKichan with making promises of,
first, giving Thomas Brownlee a
position; second, putting the striking miners to work on the streets
even if thero is no work for them
lo do.
The two statements are false,
and wilfully false. Mr. McKichan,
differently from Jack Clute, has
made no promises of work or office
to any elector to obtain his support.
Unfortunately Mr. Clute cannot
say as much.
The "citizeim" who have thrust
their candidate on the electors, in
the person of good natured, easy
going Jack Clute, are the "citizens"
who have had their fingers in ths
city till for the past four years, and
whowant to remain as "the push"
for all time to come. They have
covered up their tracks as best they
can. The only argument tbey advance for their retention of civic
affairs is gross abuse of their opponents.
Turn the rascals out this year,
and try a change for the better.
JUST WHAT
HAPPENED
The   "Citizens" Alarmed
at the Returns-What
They Did.
The regular meeting of the close d
door push was held at the committee
rooms on Columbia avenue east on
Monday evening, Dec. 13. All
the leading lights of the ring reported present, Dr. Sinclair taking
the|chair. Those in attendance were
examined and found quallified to
remain.
The meeting was very harmonious although Mr. John Clute interrupted several times to call the
attention of the assemblage to tbe
article in the Would of December
13th, on the financial status of the
city after four years of his services.
Mr. Clute said the article must
be answered. All seemed perfectly
willing that it should, but no one
seemed disposed to attempt tbe
proposition.
The chairman, Dr. Sinclair, said
the committee must get to work,
the situation demanded work. It
was beyond peradventure, notwithstanding the reports coming in,
demanded unremitting labor. Noticing the expression of alarm
which seemed to spread over the
assemblage at his remarks tbe
chair blandly added "unremitting
labor to secure a majority beyond
peradventure notwithstanding."
It was then announced that Angus J. McDonell, the labor candidate for ward three, could not qualify. One member said, "we are
likely to elect one alderman if the
report is true." The remark: was
greeted with applause which continued until Alderman McKenzie
asked if his (McDonell's) action
in thc council the past year might
not invalidate the acts of the council and was their any danger to
their salaries through that invalidation. Tbe question was ruled
out of order by the chair. There
was no applause.
Mr. Frank Walker of Walker &
Jackson then offered to wager $500
to $300 that the labor party would
bo compelled to eat crow on tbe
1 night of the Kith. Home one unkindly inquired if it would be
Maxey Crow, and there were no takers.
The proposition to change tbe
name of the party to the Citizens
Democratic party to catch the
Missouri vote was voted down, although it received strong support
in some quarters.
The meeting then sojourned.

GIVEN HIS DUE.
How do tho little band of Bernard's Bupporters in this city like
Mr. Frecheville's report on the Le
Roi investigation?
For months these kind gentlemen were supporting with voice and
purse the man who is responsible
for our existing labor troubles.
They have met the charges
made in these columns against
Barney and his crew with repeated
denials. Whatever Messrs. Macdonald and Thompson prompted
them to shout they shouted with a
will. They were willing to believe
anything against the miners who
have made Rossland a first class
mining camp, and unwilling to
believe that Macdonald could do
anything wrong.
Are these gentlemen really proud
of the position Mr. Frecheville's
report leaves them in today? Are
they proud of the soundness of
their judgment in this matter?
Are the people they have misled, proud of their cocksure leaders?.
The gentlemen who shouted so
loudly and so long for Bernard
Macdonald last summer and who
were prepared to back their judgment on the trouble maker's retention in office are among the chief
shouters for Jack Clute today. Is
their judgment any better in
Clute's case than it has proved to
be in Macdonald's?
One would almost fancy that
gentlemen who have been so easily
blindfolded and befooled by Bernard Macdonald would hesitate
before they undertook to lead public opinion here a second time.
Mr. Fraser of the Bank of Montreal, Frank Walker, A. S. Good -
eve, good old Dr. Sinclair, J. B.
Johnson, and above all the Whiner. Were not these at least some
of Mr. Macdonald's supporters and
are they not thrusting Jack Clute
to the front now?
How Bernard Macdonald must
have smiled at the earnest support
that was accorded him by the
simple minded gentlemen who
swore by him, and were prepared
to die in his cause. Will Mr. William Thompson entertain the townspeople to another banquet on the
strength of Mr. Frecheville's report,
or will the old flag be hoisted up
over the Le Roi hoist once more to
celebrate this latest and most convincing proof of the vindication of
"our policy?"
Bernard Macdonald was in London whon Mr. Frecheville's full re-
port appeared in all the   financial
papers. It has taken time, but
the trouble-maker haB got his due
at last.
ITS TOO LATE NOW.
Asthma 6ure Free!
As anticipated, Mr. Clute iB endeavoring at the last moment to
explain away the very unpleasant
position he findB himself in regarding the city finances.
Had the chairman of last year's
finance committee come out frankly
and put the yearly balance Bheet
of the city in black and white before thu electors, he might have
been able to make out some kind
of a case, even if it was a very weak
one, but when he deliberately arranged to prevent the taxpayers
getting at the true position of
affairs he fairly forfeited any consideration at their hands.
By a system of bookkeeping that
would docredit to Whitaker Wright,
Mr. CU'te endeavors to explain
away this morning tbe plain
charges against his administration made by the Would.
Mr. Clute, however, does not attempt any explanation of his concealment of the city's real financial position today, after his four
years of service, and his statement
as to the overdraft at the bank of
over $20,000, makes out even a
worse case against his administration of affairs than the Would
charged yesterday.
After taking credit last year for
all taxes which should have been
paid in previous years, Mr. Clute
tries to set off the general account
overdraft of over $20,000 against
the unpaid taxes for 1901. This
year the same game will be tried
over again, and the history of the
past four years will be repeated, if
Mr. Clute is permitted to play with
our finances any longer.
Mr. Clute and his backers
should be thoroughly ashamed of
the sorry spectacle presented to the
taxpayers as the result of "my
four long years of service."
The water works muddle is worse
than we claimed for it. For two
years Mr. Clute has heen unable to
sell a dollar's worth of the debentures, yet he has run up a debt at
the bank of nearly $10,000, and
this notwithstanding the fact that
the water works system paid
the handsome sum of ovor $18,000
last year.
ThiB is the result of Mr. Clute's
financing, laid open to the public
view. No wonder Jack Clute did
his best to cover it up, We can, at
least, understand now why a policy
of "closed doors" was considered
necessary.
Turn the rascals out.
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
Barney a mine manager? Why
he was merely a purchasing agent
on "commission."
If it had not been for Frecheville
Barney would have been buying
machinery yet—if tbere is any left.
Kadish evidently thought there
was nothing like "concentrating"
his efforts at Northport.
Poor Bela Kadish; did he get
enough during his term of office
while he was representing the
Baker City Sampling Works, at
the Northport smelter?
"The strike was mainly brought
about by the injudicious and arbitrary action of Mr. Bela Kadish
the late manager of your smelting
works at Northport, where the
Btrike first commenced."—Frecheville's report on the Le Roi.
"My investigation shows that
there has been very great extravagance and looseness of management resulting in unwarranted expenditure and high working costs;
alto that under proper control
your property would have paid
dividends from the start"—Freehe-
ville's report on Bernard Maodonald, management of the Le Roi.

RELIEF.
There is nothing like Asthmalene.
It brings instant relief, even in the
worst cases. It cures when all else fails.
The Rev. O. F. WELLS, of Villa
Ridge, 111., sayB: "Your trial botile of
Asthmalene received in good condition.
I cannot tell you how thankful I feel
for the good derived from it. I was a
slave, chained with putrid sore throat
and Asthma lor ten years. I despaired
of ever being cured. I saw your advertisement for the cure of this dreadful
und tormenting disease, Asthma, and
thought you had overspoken yourselves,
but resolved to give it a trial. To my
astonishment, the trial aeted like a
chaim.   Send me a full size bottle."

Gentlemen: Your Asthmalene is an
excellent remedy f >r Asthma and Hay
Fever, and its composition alleviates

wonderful.
After having it carefully analyzed, we can state that Asthmalene contains no
opium, morphine, chloroform or ether.   Very truly yours,
REV. DR. MORRIS WECHSLER.

Gentlemen: I write this te?timonial from a sense of duty, having tested the
wonderful effect of your Asthmalene, for the cure of Asthma. My wife has been
afflicted with spasmodic asthma for the past 12 years. Having exhausted my own
skill as well as manv others, I chanced to see yonr sign upon your windows on
130th street, New York, I at ouce obtiired a bottle of Asthmalene. My wife
commenced taking it about the first of November. I very soon noticed a radical
improvement. After using ont bottle her Asthma has disappeared and she is entirely free from all symtomB. I feel tnat I can consistently recommend the medicine to all who are afflicted with thie distressing disease.
Yours respectfully, O. D. PHELPS, M. D.
Dr. Taft Bros. Medicine Co. Feb. 5, iqoi.
Gentlemen: I was troubled with Asthma for 22 years. I have tried numer-
ous remedies, bat they have all failed, I ran across your advertisement and started with a trial bottle. I found relief at once. I have since purchased your full

years was unable to work. I am now in the best of health and am doing business
every day.   This testimony you oan make such use of as you Bee fit.

Dear Sir:—Notices have been
po3ted in different parts of the city
by three Italians that are scabbing
on tho-hill, calling a meeting to
organize a society in opposition to
the Gioodans Bruno Society, from
which they have been expelled for
the violation of its laws. Prominent among the names of the signatures attached to the notices are
Omabile Notii, Joe Vercillo, Fort
Calestro, Achille Albo and Frank
Albo a number of whom have been
expelled from tbe Bruno Society
for scabbing on the hill.
Yours truly,

Four long years of service and
over twenty thousand dollars behind. Oh, go away back and lit
down, John Stilwell.
A paper like the Whiner, which
today tnlks about "councils elected

over workingmen's spelling.
Take a look at Peter John McKichan's picture that Carpenter
got out this morning, and make up
your mind to vote for an honest
man.
A. S. Goodeve is doing all he can
to conceal bis past share of tht
financial muddle the city is now
in. He has good reason to work
"behind closed doors."
Bernard Macdonald was always
courting the strictest investigation
into his "honest" management and
he has at last got what he wanted.
Is it at all likely that the Le Roi

Annual Banquet.
The Rossland Young Men's Institute held their annual banquet
last evening in their hall on Columbia avenue.
The affair was an immense success in every way. President Don-
nelland occupied the chair and
Father Welch was an honored
guest.
At the conclusion of the banquet
proper. President Donnelland read
a short address to Rev. Father
Welch and on behalf of the institute presented him with an exceedingly handsome and well filled
dressing case.
The reverend gentleman made a
feeling reply to all the kind remarks made of him, and thanked
the members of the Institute very
heartily for remembering him so
thoughtfully.
Songs, recitations and speeches
rilled in the balance of the evening,
and every one departed well pleased
with the success of the annual
gathering.
Turn the Rascals Out.
Rossland people have an oppor
tunity this evening of enjoying a
strictly up-to-date play, and, al
though the production will be by
amateurs, it will be none the less
entertaining.
The play has a distinct plot,
which is visible throughout, but
comedy plays and important part
and some of the situations are distinctly funny' creating no end of
amusement for the audience,
Those who make up the caste have
been rehearsing deligently for some
time past and it is not flattery
when when we say they have obtained a degree of perfection in the
several characters seldom equalled, evon by professionals. Graham's full orchestra will be present and will add not a little to the
enjoyable event.
If you enjoy a laugh, and nearly
everyone does, be sure and attend
tonight. If you are not pleased
it is because you cannot be.
The proceeds of the performance
will go for the benefit of the Presbyterian church.

The Whiner has   some splendid
calls to the electors  today.     Here |
are some of them.     It says McKichan  and his   backers  are responsible for the  worst industrial
crisis in the history of   Rossland,
where,   aB Mr.    Frecheville   says,
that Bela Kadish was responsible, '
and every one knows that Kadish
did what Macdonald told  him  lo
do, and that it is  Barney's pap. r .
and    Barney's   friends   that   are
boosting Clute today.
The Whiner is worried over (be
amount that Brownlee pays in!o
the city treasury. Yet Brownlee
pays more than the whole Miner
outfit lock, stock and barrel. Her*
is a gem:
"The Citizens' candidates are
men whose financial stakes are
driven so deep in the city as to afford an absolute guarantee that
the city's interests will be safe in
their hands."
Sure, they have got their stakes
driven pretty deep into the city
till, and if they can only keep them
"in" their "interests" will be "safe"
from the general public.
Turn the rascals out.
A Bitter Kxperlence.
"Say, you are not consistent,"
said a ringster yesterday to an enthusiastic McKichan man. "You
advocate experienced men for the
mines and inexperienoed men for
civic affairs."
"Well," said the McKichanman,
"You see there are two kinds of
'experienced men.' They have a lot
of one kind at the mines now
but they are getting rid of them as
fast as they can. We have had
'experienced' men of a kind in
municipal affairs but our experience of this particular kind of
'experienced' men has been like
the mine foremen's, and like the
mine foremen, we want to get
rid of them. Inexperienced civic
men could not do any worse than
the 'experienced' class you refer to
and we think they will do » heap
buller."   Try then, and Me.

In asking your support aB
candidate . for Mayor at the

state that if elected my aim
shall be to give an economical
and impartial administration,
to reduce expenses wherever
possible, and place the city on
a self-sustaining basis. -
To reduce the city's indebt-
ness if possible, and that all
expenditures for the improvement of the city shall be, as
