keep the plant busy for over two
years.
One of the eleclric drills at the
Payne was tried today. It worked
successfully. These are the first
electric drills used in British Columbia.

FOR MINES
English Paper's Criticism
of Sundry Mining Directors.
London, Oct. 20.—The Money
Market Review, containing particulars of the British Ontario Gold
Mining company, says that it is by
no means encouraging to would-be
investors, and points out that gold
mining run by English companies
has not been a success.
The Reviuw says that "the record
of the directors has been so unfortunate from a joint stock company
standpoint that we should hesitate
before entrusting them with the
control of another mining company."    	
Miner* Hurt
Two minors named Frank Shannon, aged 26, and Hugh English,
aged 20, were seriously injured by
an explosion of dynamite in the
shaft of one of the iron mines near
Kitchener on Wednesday afternoon. A light engine conveying
Drs. King and Keith left Cranbrook a 8 p. in. and reached Kitchener at !) o'clock, making the
run of 55 miles in ono hour. The
doctors left for the mines on horse
back immediately after they reached Kitchener.

THE SITUATION REVIEWED
What the Tribune Thinks Will Be
the Outcome.
POLICY OF THE NEW MANAGEMENT
Strike a Legacy of the Wright-Macdonald Outfit—If
the Men Hold Firm They Must Win Out-
Dislike Recognition.
In a lengthy and singularly ac-
urate review of the strike situation
in this camp the Nelson Tribune of
this morning says amongst other
things:
Manager Macdonald at the mine
will go, and Kadish at the North-
port smelter will go, but their going will not be in consequence of
their strike policy. Their removal
will be but the carrying out of
the reorganization policy of
the new directors. When they
are gone, however, it is just possible that a compromise will be arrived at in the immediate future,
but it will probably require to .be
framed in a way to let Mr. Freche-
villeand Mr. Bratnober down easily.
Their minds have been prejudiced
against the union. Recognition of
it is repugnant to them.
From remarks that have been
let fall by Director Frecheville and
Henry Bratnober it may be gathered that the chief obstacle to the
settlement of the strike is not by
any means the additional fifty
cents per day for muckers. What
Mr. Frecheville dislikes more than
anything else is yielding to the demands of the union. Several
overtures have been made to him
by interested parties looking to a
compromise, but none of those who
approached him were able to make
it appear that he could entertain
such compromises as were suggested without showing weakness.
The trouble with the Miners' union was none of his making, but it
was a legacy which came to the
present directors from their predecessors, and in the opinion of
Mr. Frecheville must be dealt with
in the same manner as if created
by the present board.
From the men's side of the dispute it is apparent that all they
have to do to win out is to remain
firm and they appear to be willing
to do so. It may take Messrs.
Frecheville and Bratnober some
time to reach the proper conclusion, that they cannot hope to
work their mine profitably without the union, yet when they do
arrive at it they may be counted
upon as accepting it and acting
upon it. To the men the tight
seems the very existence of their
organization, as failure in Rossland
will invite further conflict in other
portions of the district. Just how
far they would go along the road
to a compromise is a matter which
none but the members of
the executive know, but
from the fact that recent overtures were made with a view to
a settlement it is presumed that
the men will entertain a compromise when it comes.
COAL MINES
OUTPUT
Production of Anthracite
Coal in Pennsylvania-
Demand Greater.
Philadelphia, Oct. 20.—The production of anthracite coal in Pennsylvania thiB year will be the largest in the history of the trade. Approximately thc output will be
about 10,000,000 tons more than
in 11)00, when the production was
•15,107,181 tons. For nine months
of this year the shipment of coal
has amounted to 40,809,786 tons,
as against 84,1292,710 tons for the
same period last year.
The demand for hard coal thiB
year has been greater than ever
before. The production has been
fully taken up and the mining
companies have little stock on
hand.
The Lehigh Valley and Jersey
Central Railroad companies have
practically placed an embargo on
other lines and will not permit
their coa' "°TB to go off their line
of tracks.
NEWS FROM
THE WAR
Letter From Mr. Dickenson, Formerly of
This City.
Clam Chowder free day and   nixM a
thc Alhambra.
A Cottdii Strike.
Valleyfield, (.tie., Oct. 26.—There
iB another strike on at the cotton
mills here. The mills closed last
night for a few ditys.
Daniel Dickenson, formerly a
Rossland broker, who enlisted in
the Strathcona Horse for South
Africa, writing to his former partner Mr. Orde, gives a vivid idea of
the situation today at Johannesburg.
The letter is dated six weeks ago,
and Mr. Dickenson says that at
the time of writing every able
bodied man in that city between
the ages of 21 and 50 had been
ordered to report at headquarters
for active Bervice in and around
Johannesburg. The men on duty
being required for service up
country. Mr. Dickenson had reported and was trying to obtain a
horse, these animals being Bcarce
and costly. The writer Bays the
place is in a very unsettled state,
but he believes good times are not
far off, and he thinks that when
the war is ended there will be
great opportunities for making
money. He is in the broker business and is without a partner and
is anxious to get news of Rosaland.
If matters do not show signs of
mending by the end of the year
Mr, Dickenson may come out lo
Rossland.
FROM THE NORTH
A Rough Trip Down From
Skagway.
A $1600 GOLD NUGGET FOUND
George Martin Drowned—The Last
Boat of the Season — Liberal
Meeting at Vancouver.
Vancouver, Oct. 26.—The steamer Danube arrived last evening
from Skagway with 120 passengers.
She had the roughest trip Captain
McLeod ever experienced. Yukon
river navigation is not yet impossible, but is practically closed
down. The Dawson, the*last of
the White PasB Company steamers
arrived at White Horse on the
18th. The steamer Ora left Dawson on Monday for up river and
would probably be the last boat.
The only accident reported was
the falling off the Dawson of a fireman, named George Martin, who
was intoxicated and walked off the
deck.
A nugget worth $1600 has been
found in the Treadwell mine at
Juneau. This is the largest nugget
ever found in that district.
The Liberal association last
night passed a resolution favoring
the running of the next election on
party lines. It was decided to
recommend the provincial executive to hold a Liberal convention
next January.

Sad Fate of Miss Hoggan--
Had a Brother Living
in Nelson.
Miss Elizabeth Hoggan, the unfortunate lady who was found dead
at the Pacific hotel, in Spokane,
was a visitor at the Kootenay
hotel herc on Monday last, and
left for Spokane the following day.
As a joke—the lady registered at the JKootenay as "Mrs.
K. Kitchen" and at the time she
explained to Miss Tower that she
merely wanted to tease some of her
friends here. Miss Hoggan had
been visiting her brother of Nelson
who was at work up the Columbia
river near Burton City. At the
time of hor death she was on her
way to visit a sister residing at
Montrose, Col.
It was stated today that Mr.
Hoggan had left Nelson for Spokane this morning.
a 1.  Itol Itlii..,.
About 11 o'cloco last night the
frequent blowing of the Le Roi
whistle caused RoBsland people to
turn out and gaze up the hill.
A lire had started in the assay
ollice and for a short time it looked
as if there was going to bo trouble
for the new management but the
water was quickly turned on and
the flre extinguished without much
damage to the building.
Our stock of kodaks, hand cameras and amateur supplies of all
kinds, must be closed out by Nov.
5th. Everything at actual cost.
Hotter not fool yourself and overlook this opportunity. Just think
of getting a camera for ..10 less
than eastern list prices. No fooling; if you want these goods you
must come at once and get them.

UNFAIR LAWS.
When tho Toronto Globe imprisoned some fourteen of its striking
printers for "unlawful conspiracy"
in 1S72, it unwittingly greatly
strengthened trade unionism generally.
The big publication was strictly
within its legal rights as the law
then stood in putting the offending printers behind the bars, but
the final outcome of the matter
was the repeal of the obnoxiouB
statute so far as trade unions were
concerned, and the triumph of the
printers who succeeded in obtaining
the shorter day which they demanded.
The change in the law was rushed through parliament, then in
session, by Sir John Macdonald
purely in deference to expressed
public opinion on the subject and
the same pressure will be quickly
put on now if the effort is made
to crush out trade unionism by
the weight of unjust laws.
The late George Brown had legal
justification for hiB prosecution in
1872 and we all know the outcome
of the matter. The Le Roi company
may Btrive to enforce the letter
of the law here ;ust as Mr. Brown
did in the early days Toronto,
but public opinion will not support
the Le Roi company in 1901 any
more than it did the proprietor of
the Globe in 1872.
PAID OFFICIALS.
In order to injure Miners' unionB
generally, and to stir up public
feeling against the organizations,
the officials are described as being
in the receipt of "fat salaries" and
they are further portrayed as "agitators" who thrive on strikes, and
who materially benefit by the
troubles of their fellows.
The real facts of the case are totally at variance with the mean
assertions constantly made, but
thil of course makes no difference
to the scribbler whose only object
is to cast unkind reflections on the
working class generally, and who
is always profoundly indifferent aB
to the truth of the assertions he
deals out to a suffering public.
Take the Rossland Miners' Union
as a sample. There is one paid
official, Frank E. Woodside, the
financial secretary, who, at least,
works as hard as the penny-a-lie
men who malign him, and who iB
entitled to the princely allowance
of $;j.50 per day, but who, as the
Would is informed by the union
executive, has not drawn a dollar
since the strike commenced. The
recording secretary receives
a rebate of assessments made
in return for the work he does, and
there thc salary list ends.
We have not heard that Bernard
Macdonald haB refused his salary
since the trouble which he himself
originated commenced. Possibly
hjD may be assisting the suffering shareholders of the Le Roi
company by contributing his services gratis but even if he is he
should find some other way of attacking organized labor than by industriously circulating through the
medium of his newspaper such
palpable untruths concerning the
alleged salaries paid to union officials as we hear of day after day.
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
By' the recent census, the population of the Australian Commonwealth is found to be 3,777,212
persons, thus distributed—New
South   Wales, 1,362,232; Victoria
1,185,804; Queenland, 502,892;
North Australia, 182,553; Tasmania, 171,039; total, 3,777,217. In
1901 the population of. thc same
political division, numbered 3,-
183,237. The increase of the ten
years was therefore, a total of 503,-
975.

Speaking of the trial at Vancouver of thc striking fisherman the
Victoria Outlook says;
Though the strikers broke tho
law by carrying arms and endeavoring to intimidate the Japanese, it is well remembered that the
cannerymen, by aiding and counselling the latter to obtain fraudulent naturalization, were by far
the greater offenders.
Mr. Justice Drake, naturally,
believes in upholding the majesty
of the law—he is in the law business—and when charging the Vancouver juries he viewed matters
through strictly legal spectacles;
but the juries took a wider view
and sided with the fishermen.
If the law is to be respected it
will have to be evenly and generally administered. If it is only
administered in spots and enforced
against'the poor and ignorant while
the rich and influential go free,
the people at large can never be
depended on to back it with their
approval.
Since the day of the inauguration
of 'he strike in Rossland, a well-
devised campaign of misrepresentation has been carried on. The
Le Roi company controlled a newspaper, whose editors and reporters
obeyed instructions to the letter.
These editors and reporters were
also correspondents of other newspapers and of the Associated Press.
This practically gave the Le Roi
company the ear of every editor of
a daily newspaper in Canada
But notwithstanding this great advantage, the managers of the Le
Roi company who devised this
campaign for the dissimulation of
falsehoods have come to grief. The
one at Northport sees his successor
looking over the ground, and the
one at Rossland knows his days
are numbered. Bela Kadish has
already got his walking papers,
and Bernard Macdonald knows his
are all ready to be handed him.
With the departure of these two
men, it is not likely the strike
will continue long. Henry Bratnober, who seems to be the power
behind the throne in the Le Roi
management, knows that there are
few idle skilled hard-rock miners
on the Pacific coast, and he knows
that in order to mine the Le Roi
successfully only good men can be
used. Good men are not "scabs"
in any country, and no one knows
it better than Mr. Bratnober.
With good men will come a long
period of peace and prosperity at
Rossland. The remainder of the
country is all  right.—Nelson Trib-

RELIEF.
There is nothing like Asthmalene.
It brings inBtant relief, even in the
woret cases. It cures when all else falls.
The Rev. O. F. WELLS, of Villa
Ridge, 111., says: "Your (rial bottle ol
Asthmalene received in good condition.
I cannot tell you how thankful I feel
for Ihe good derived from it. I was a
slave, chained with putrid sore thro it
and Asthma for ten yeurs. I deepahed
ol ever being cured. I saw your advertisement lor the cure of this dreadful
ancl tormenting disease, Asthma, and
thought you bad overspoken yourselves,
but resolved lo give it a trial. To my
astonishment, the trial acted like a
charm.   Send me a lull size bottle."

afflicted with spasmodic asthma for tbe past 12 years. Having exhausted my own
skill as well as many others, I ehanced lo see your sign upon your windows on
I30th street, New York, I at once obtained a bottle of Asthmalene. My wife
commenced taking it about the first of November. I very soon noticed a radical
improvement. After using one bottle her Asthma has disappeared and she is entirely free from all symtoms. I teel that I can consistently recommend the medicine to all who are aillicted with this distressing disease.
Yours respectfully, O. D  PHELPS, M. D.

A COUNTRY WITHOUT STRIKES
Henry Demorest Lloyd at Seattle-
An Interesting Lecture to the
Economic League.
Henry Demorest Lloyd, the
noted author recently lectured in
Seattle under the auspices of the
Economic League. President Jay
P. Graves of the state university
presided, and introduced Mr, Llovd.
The lecturer is a polished speaker, and thinks readily. In his address on ''Newest England" he
showed a complete grasp of his
subject, and his ability to render
an intensely interesting lecture on
the subject:
"The reforms in New Zealand,"
the speaker explained, "were not
brought about as the result of any
political agitation or social propaganda; they were not the result of
religious enthusiasm taking the
form of economic crusade, were
merely the result of the acknowledged failure of the existing conditions and theories of government
to provide protection for the individual and for the community and
in the matter of affording men the
opportunity to labor at productive
industry and receive for that labor
the fruits of their toil.
"The panic of 1893, which so
much affected all other portions of
the world did not roach New Zealand. It reached Australia and
the government anticipating its
coming took possession with the
consent of the stockholders of that
institution of one of the largest
banks iu the country and through
the operation of it financed the
country and the business interests
of the people over lhat calamitous
period.
"Another radial reform iB the
compulsory arbitration law which
has now been in force for a number
of years and has proven so satisfactory that there has not been a
Btrike or a lockout in the land for
six years. Another labor law is
the law requiring all employers to
give their employees a half holiday
each week.
"The railroads are owned by tho
government and conducted to further the development of the country. Persons over a certain age
are pensioned by the government.
Contracts for government work,
are let to laboring men without
the intervention of contractors, a
plan which has met with marked
success. And many other reforms
have been instituted all of which
have given such satisfaction that
there is now no suggestion of returning to the old order of things."
