THE MERCHANTS
How the Macdonald Policy
Affects Them.
PROSPERITY AND CHEAP LABOR
Mine Workers Making Ready for a
Greater War- Scabs Afraid pf
Future—Money Tied Up.
The business men of Rossland,
who have not been as independent
as they could have been without
lose of self-respect, are becoming a
trifle dissatisfied over the conditions that have existed in that
camp since Bernard Macdonald
took charge of the Le Roi as general
manager, says the Nelson Tribune
. of yesterday.
Before his advent, the men who
worked in Rossland's mines spent
their earnings freely, and all kinds
of business, from selling mining
shares to peanuts, was good.
Once Mr. Macdonald appeared
the change comnioncqjjgrfSpinine
workers knew the _n^''*y reputation, and they knew tbi^. there
would be trouble sootjv *r later in
Rossland. It came sooner than expected, and when it oame the Business men of Rossland showed that
they were lacking in courage.
They signed a round robin to the
effect that if the men struck they
need not look lo them for assistance; in other words, if the mine
workers went on strike against Mr.
Macdonald's methods they need
not expect any favors in the way
of credit from tho merchants who
signed the round robin.
The trouble between Macdonald
and the men at that time was
patched up; but the men had been
taught a lesson. From that time
on they were not free spenders;
they saved their wages for a rainy
day. Tho rainy day came last
July, but it found the men with
money. Those who had no interests in Rossland loft at once for
other mining camps, and those
who were compelled to remain were
so fixed that they did not need to
ask the merchants for favorB.
The Missourians who have been
imported to take the places of the
union mine workers are not likely
to be free spenders. They know
that they are considered interlopers;
that their room would be far preferable to thoir company. They
will save thoir earnings so as to he
fixed when their turn comes to
take a walk, which iB sure to come.
The stagnation and depression
that exists in Rossland also exists
in every town in the Boundary district, and even prevails to a limited
oxtent in tho Slocan. The mine
workers everywhere believo that
if Macdonald succeeds in "scabbing" Rossland, that it will only be
a question of time when the same
game will be tried in other camps.
The men aro preparing for the
coming struggle hy saving their
money. Were the Rossland mine
workers paid the same wages as are
paid in aU thc other camps in
Kootenay and Yale, the chances
are business men would not bo
complaining of tho thrift of the
mine workers.
The business men of Rossland,
by their servility to Bernard Macdonald, have caused the business
men of Kootenay and Yale to lose
the profits on hundreds of thousands of dollars of business. The
real cause of thc business depression in this country is as outlined
above. Well paid men not in
danger of losing their jobs at one
time made the mining towns and
camps of Kootenay hum with prosperity. That prosperity will never
return with cheap labor.
MUST MACDONALD LEAVE?
An Inspired Article in the Spokesman-Review.
THE TIME IS NOW GETTING RIPE
Good Reasons Given for the Move-Not Sacrificed to
Union Demands-Resignation of Kadish-Who
Will Be the New Manager.
What -was clearly an inspired
article appeared in the Spokesman-
Review yesterday foreshadowing
the retirement of Bernard Macdonald from the Le Roi company.
The World reproduces the article
in full.   Here it is:
It is highly probable that Bernard Macdonald will soon retire
from the management of the Le
Roi mine at Rossland. It is practically settled that Bela Kadish
w ill retire from the management of
the Le Roi smelter at Northport.
These two developments are most
important result of the recent visit
which was made to Rossland by
Henry Bratnober, who ranks
among the largest shareholders in
the Le Roi company.
It is believed that the retirement of Messrs. Macdonald and
Kadish will simplify the striko situation greatly. The chief antagonism of the striking miners and
smeltermen is centered personull
against Mr. Macdonald, with a less
degree bestowed upon Mr. Kadish.
It has been conceded by the
strikers from the start that if Mr.
Macdonald were to withdraw from
the management of the mine the
chances of settling the troubles
would be doubled.
Did   not Wi-h tu Saerlflt'e Him.
The mine company has realized
this fact, but has been indisposed
to retire Mr. Macdonald under the
fire of opposition which has been
centered against him.
The heavy stockholders of the
company, including Mr. Bratnober,
have been anxious to the avoid moral effect which would result if a
change in managers should take
place while the strike is still unsettled. It has been considered
good policy to keep him until work
should be fairly started again in
the mines. The company would
then be in position to retire him,
without appearing to sacrifice him
at the demands.
The movement to re-open the
mines is fairly started. Between
400 and 500 men are reported to
he working in tho Lo Roi group.
They are practically all non-union
men, and they are not satisfactory
to the company, which would be
glad lo get the old men back if
they could be induced to come
back.
Tinia Oet. Ripe.
The time is getting ripe therefore for the retirement of Mr. Macdonald. It is expected that on
bis withdrawal from the company,
the old men will come back to
work. No promise will be made
outright to them for an increase
in wages to $3 a day for muckers.
It was interesting to note, however, that in the recent interview
given to the Spokesman-Review,
Mr. Bratnober said that when the
mine should be put on a paying
basis, the company might increase
the wage to 13. He added diplomatically that if such an advance
were made, it would come from
the company and not in response
to the demands of the strikers.
Some interesting stories are in
circulation among mining men in
regard to the relation between Mr.
Bratnober and Mr. Macdonald. Immediately after the famouscompany
meeting of the Le Roi, a few weeks
ago, a message was sent to Mr.
Macdonald from the London management of the company, in which
Mr. Macdonald's attitude during
the strike was heartily approved
Mr. Macdonald promptly published the article in his paper, the
Rossland Miner. It is now asserted that the meBsage was an artful
device of the aBtute Mr. Bratnober,
who wanted to keep Mr. Macdonald "jollied up" until the time
should come to dispense with his
services.
No names have yet been made
public regarding who should be the
new manager of the mine.
H..ILI1 Hml Go.
It is generally accepted in mining circles that Bela Kadish. of the
Northport smelter will retire in the
near future from the management
of that property. There is excellent reason to believe that he has
already tendered his resignation.
It probably has not been accepted,
as there is some doubt as to who
will be   named   to   succeed   him.
Engineer Sontag, a Salt Lake
smelterman, is a possible person.
He has been considered for the
place by Mr. Bratnober. He has a
high reputation.

UNSAVORY CASE
Continuation of the London
Police Trial.
USE OF HYPNOTIC INFLUENCE
Court Room Was Crowded—Prisoners Were Loudly Hissed and
Hooted at.
London, Oct. 18.—The bearing
of the charges against Theodore
and Laura Jackson (Ann Odelia
Dis Debar) was continued today.
The police court was crowded, a
number of women being among
those present, while the police
found it necessary to clear the
eidewalk of those who were anxious
to obtain admission and hear the
most loathsome testimony ever
given publicity in a London court.
The witness examined today
was Daisy Adams, a young girl
wearing a red Tam-O'Shanter cap
and with her hair in curls hanging
down her shoulders. She testified
that she had been enticed to London under the promise of being
taught music.
Laura Jackson continued to conduct the case for the defence. She
was clothed in a soiled bedraggled
white silk toga. The woman evidently had a powerful influence
over the Adams girl and leaned
over the dock and gazed fixedly at
the witness, evidently wilh the
hope of intimidating her or of reestablishing her hypnotic influence,
but the girl frustrated her effort.
Mrs. Jackson demanded a chair
and seating herself in a corner of
the dock interrupted tbe witness
with irrelevant questions and objections until the court ordered her
to desist.
The testimony which was of the
vilest character, related to the indignity which the witness had
suffered at the hands of the male
prisoner while Bhe was a neophyte
of the theocratic unity, under the
promise that she would become a
reincarnation of the Virgin Mary.
The witness testified that Bhe was
fully under the prisoner's influenc e
at the time and that she believed
his claims of divine parentage.

AN OBSTACLE GOING.
The announcement of the "highly probable" early retirement of
Bernard Macdonald from tho management of the Le Roi company
as stated in the Spokesman-Re
view yesterday will hardly cause
much surprise in Rossland.
That Superintendent Kadish of
the Northport smelter and Assistant Manager Thompsou here
Bhould follow the arch conspirator
into retirement is merely the natural and logioal sequence of • the
the unpleasant crisis through
which mining affairs in Rossland
particularity, and the Kootenays
generally are now passing.
Mr. Macdonald's departure does
not necessarily mean the immediate settlement of all our troubles,
but it does mean that the originator
of all the unrest now existing in
mining circles in British Columbia has been severely rebuked and
his power for evil has been materially lessened.
Driven from the Le Roi, it is mi-
probable that the defeated union
smasher would care to remain here
as manager of the Whitaker Wright
properties, and . in any event the
chief obscacle to the restortation
of peace and harmony in this camp
has been brushed aside so far as
the biggest mining property in
British Columbia is concerned.
The attack on Mr. Macdonald's
avowed policy is well understood
here. He it was, who having de
liberately originated the insane
plan of destroying all organized
labor, tearfully besought the permission of the London directors
to carry out his evil design, begging for a little time to demonstrate the wisdom of "our policy."
lie has succeeded in setting the
whole community by the ears and
causing a bitter feeling here
among all classes which will take
months to settle, but he has failed
in everything else.
The Le Roi mine is to be run on
the cold basis of dollars and cents
with mere personal feeling entirely Eliminated. If Mr. Macdonald
had succeeded in proving his use-
fullness to the concern with which
he has been connected, no doubt
his services would have been retained. He has evidently not succeeded, and his failure will be followed by his dismissal.
It would be strange indeed if
union men all over the Kootenays
did not hail Mr. Macdonald's departure with relief. The effect of
his policy and its wide spread and
far reaching evil results have been
admirably described by the leading editorial in yesterday's Nelson
Tribune which the World republishes today.
Manager Macdonald'sretirement
will go a very long way to mend
the troubles existing here, which
commenced with his advent
amongst us and which but for him
would never have arisen. If the
morning paper can be made to
cease its foolish policy of abuse
and misrepresentation it is quite
possible now that peace and harmony may once more reign in
Rossland aud the Kootenays and
prosperity ensue.
Mr. Macdonald and his newspaper have so far prevented capital and labor from coming to an
understanding with the removal
of the one, and the bottling up of
the other, peace is at least probable.
THE TROUBLE-MAKER.
known tho class of miners who
have helped to make Rossland
what it is today. They also have
some idea now of the undesirable
class of men which have been
thrust upon the community of late.
They will appreciate therefore at
its true value the persistent abuse
that is daily showered upon all and
sundry by Mr. Macdonald's apology
for a newspaper, the Rossland
Miner.
The chief of police was described
"a poltroon". Hon. Smith Curtis'
efforts to promote a settlement are
derided and his motives impugned.
Mayor Lalonde is cursed with bell,'
book and candle, and it is only
necessary that any citizen of Rossland should be a member of a
labor organization to call down a
storm of vindictive abuse upon his
devoted head.
Before Bernard Macdonald
bought the Miner did all this
happen? Is everyone who differs
from "our policy" to be black'
guarded in and out of season?
Truly tbe fallen manager of the
Le Roi is entitled to very little
public sympathy while his newspaper is conducted on its present
lines.
So long as the Miner is in any
way encouraged to prolong its
senselesB polioy of vituperation and
misrepresentation, just so long is
the situation endangered and the
hope of a speedy settlement de-
f erred.

President Roosevelt is said to
have given much study to the labor
question. He is personally acquainted with a majority of the
well-known labor leaders of the
country. He possesses strong and
well-defined views on nearly every
question in which labor is interested. It may be said that the
president's interest in this subject
is ethical, but it is none the less
complete and absorbing. He and
Mr. Gompers are old friends. They
have been collaborators in the
preparation of articles for publication on subjects in which they
have been mutually concerned.—

Real Situation.
Rossland, B. C, Sept. 5th, 1901.
To the Citizens and Business Men of Rossland and Vicinity and to the General Public .■
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 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 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 unturned 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 ot 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. Now, 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.

Owen Biglen's Experience
of Military Rule.

Enlist for Want of Something to
Do—Glad to Get Back.

Owon Biglen, one of Rossland's
old-time standard miners, has just
got back from South Africa, where
he went some four months ago,
when Bcab times commenced  here,
Owen says he is glad to get back
and he has no further use for
South Africa for a working miner.
Military rule is in force everywhere and the miners as well aB
the mining companies are all having a hard time of it. AH that a
miner can receive is five shillings
per day, the balance of his wageB
going to the widows and orphans
of the dead soldiers.
Tho miners who decided to stay
and work for the five shillings per
day dropped their results down
f rom ten to two holes drilled per
shift and tho mining companies
suffer accordingly.
Some forty miners who had served in the war and who started
working on a five shilling basis
got dissatisfied with their job
were promptly deported by the
authorities and (heir offer to return
to work was not considered. When
they got back to the coast many of
the men re-enlisted for active Ber-
v ice, there being nothing else for
them to do.
The coast cities are full of camps
of refuge where the necessarily idle
men and their families are maintained by the government, All
business is at a standstill and aB
many people keep coming out
from England and America, the
difficulties of the situation are increasing.
So far as business iB concerned
the country is in the same position
as when the war first started and
it will be a^long time before matters settle down.
In lhe meantime it is no country
for the working man to go to.
Mr. Biglen was in Cape Colony
only and did not go up country
at all but met many miners and
others who came back to the coast
from every quarter of South Africa
and they all told practically the
samo story of their experience.
There is a great deal of grumbling and general dissatisfaction
over the military regulation in
force and most of the miners out
there are only to' glad to loave the
country if they are able to.
Biglen is one of the men who
was severely injured in the Le Roi
cage accident a litttle over a year
ago.

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 camp of the real
Leadville type, the ores mined being gold, silver,
lead and copper. 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.
