Rossland, B. C.
Dear Sib:—
I beg to acknowledge your favor
of 30th June enclosing the resolution passed by your union regarding my coarse in the provincial
legislature during the past three
years.
This resolution is most gratifying
to me even though I must regard
it as too laudatory and appreciative
of the services I tried to render to
the provinoe and to the labor interests. I shall always cherish this
resolution as a visible bond of the
mutual good feeling that I am sure
will endure between the labor interests and myself as long as my
life Bhall last.
I have to thank you personally
for the very kind letter from yourself that accompanied the resolution.
I thank you and the members of
your union most heartily. Believe
me to be always,
Most faithfully yours,
Smith Gubtis.
Don't forget the hot lunch at the
Palace tonight.

Sir:—I bave honor of informing
you that I have been instructed by
the officers and members of the
Rossland Miners' Union, No. 38,
W. F. of M., to enclose herewith a
copy of certain resolutions which
have been unanimously passed, expressing their confidence in your
past representation of the interests
of this oity and their regrets at your
declaration that the pressure of
private business is suoh that you
will be unable to represent us in
future.
May I be permitted personally to
add my own thanks to you for your
past attitude and my regrets that
you cannot oontinue to represent
oar interests together with those of
Rossland in general.
I have the honor to remain,
Faithfully yours,

him for his services in the past and
that our regrets are hereby expressed tbat he has publicly declared
his intention of not being a

true friend to labor, one that has
not hesitated to declare his opinions on matters of publio imports

in oommon with most people in
this province, with his absolute
uprightness and his statesmen like

Owing to the holidays and the
general shut down of the mines
whioh is usual every year at the
beginning of July there were fewer
oars of ore shipped out of Roesland
during the past week than is ous-
tomary. Silioa has shipped some
concentrates for the first time in
the history of the camp and it ia to
be hoped that this shipment is but
the precursor of many more. The

Boundary Shipment*.
Phoenix, July 4.—(Special).—
The only feature of special note in
regard to the shipments from the
mines ot the Boundary for the current week is adding of the Athel-
stan mine in Wellington camp to
the list- Inasmuch as the Granby
smelter is expected to place its
fourth furnace in operation today,
as well as the Sunset smelter its
second furnace, next week's record
should be larger than for several
months.
The following shipments were
made by the different mines:
Granby mines to Granby smelter,
4,927 tons; Mother Lode to Greenwood smelter, 2697 tons; B. C. to
Greenwood and Sunset smelters,
1020 tons; Snowshoe to Greenwood and Boundary Falls
smelters, 1920 tons; Emma to
Granby smelter, 210 tons; Sunset
to Sunset smelter, 512 tonB; Athel-

The Granby smelter this week
treated 4206 tons, making a total
of 154,661 tons for the year.

PREMIER McBRIDE.
Dean is keeping back the oity. In
fact he is acting just as the World
said he would act six months ago.
As to the bluff of the War Eagle
about taking the concentrator to
Trail that is all nonsense. Kirby
might do so, for he might do anything from building a steampipe
without expansion joints or eroding a headworks at enormous expense which are inadequate to dear
the mine of ore aB soon as properly
worked, but if he does so he will
not do so for commercial reasons
but merely as a further raise on
the game he is playing. The city
sheuld oall his bob tail flush.
There is on thing that the prov
ince expects from Premier McBride
whioh is that he should deolare his
hand aa to the ooal and oil locations
in Southeast Kootenay. HiB enemies are declaring that he is holding baok in order to, favor the
C. P. R. Premier McBride cannot
expect the electorate to take him
on trust. When [they know what
he proposes to do in this regard
they will be in a position to accept
or reject his policy. But if that
policy be kept dark it will be said
that it is being .done for reasons
that dare not be made publio. It
is up to McBride to clear himself of
any such imputation without further delay which is already doing
him harm.
THE SHIPPING COMBINE
THE LARDO.
Lardo is a town on Kootenay
lake, situated in the Trout lake
' mining division,- the northern half
of which.together with the northern
half of the Ainsworth mining division, is still known as the Lardo-
Duncan country from its two ohief
valleys of the Lardo and Dunoan
rivers, both flowing into the Kootenay lake. Poplar creek is an affluent joining the Lardo river after
it leaves Trout lake.
Lardeau is the name of a town
on Upper Arrow lake near the
mouth of Fish creek'and gives its
name to the mining district in
whioh it is situated. It is separated from the Lardo-Duncan country
by the Selkirk?.
These names are spelt in this
way upon the official maps and
surely that is good enough for the
Miner, whioh, by the way, some
years ago called attention to the
mistakes whioh were arising owing
to the similarity of the names confusing two utterly different districts.
THAT  CONCENTRATOR.
It it almost time that the city
council took a tumble to itself upon
the water question instead of quarrelling over petty questions of little
importance to anybody. It goes
without saying that unless the cily
has taken some declared stand
upon the water for concentration
that the Le Roi No. 2 concentrator
will assuredly seek water elsewhere
upon .its enlargement. John
Houston of Nelson declares that
nnder the act the city has the
power to sell its water for industrial
purposes just as Nelson does. He
is probably correct. Let the ooun
oil get out and make a definite
promise to whioh they will further
declare they are prepared to stand
by, and the Le Roi No. 2 will have
no thought of leaving the oamp for
concentration. Other mines will
also lay their plans for other concentrators. The water Bupply is in
the way at present and until this
vital question is settled little movement oan be expected on their
part. By his present inaction John
At the time the Morgan Ship
ping trust was formed for the con
trol of the Atlantic trade, says the
Viotoria Colonist, conditions were
very different from what they are
today. Tonnage was scarce and
rates were high, as a result of the
enormous number of vessels engag
ed in the South African transport
business.^Now tonnage .is plentiful
and rates are low. The pyscho
logical moment Mr. Morgan ohose
for buying up a large fleet of anti
quated Bteamers at a price greatly
iu excess of their real value was a
time when it did not matter
whether a steamer was antiquated
or not. It could get all the passengers and freight it could carry
Now, however, a very sharp dis
tinction is made between the best
boats and the second best, while
the latter are subjected to grievous
competition at the hands of boats
only a little worse than they are,
Mr Morgan has arrived in New
York. His presence there is stated
to be entirely unconnected with the
business of the Shipping trust. Yet
he is accompanied by Sir Clinton
Dawkins, of the London firm, and
Henry Wilding, European man
ager of the International Mercantile
company, and these gentlemen are
in New York for the purpose
of holding conferences upon the
situation.
In London the belief is that a ie-
construction of the Morgan Shipping trust, involving an assessment, will be necessary. The
Morgan Shipping trust possesses
140 vessels, not one of which is as
fast as the four big prize boats of
the two German lines. Its earning
power entirely depends on the
capaoity of Blow antiquated boats
to get business. At the time it was
floated the rate on wheat to Glasgow was about 9 cents, it is now 3
cents, or less if a quantity is offered. All freight rates are lower.
Three boats of the Leyland Line,
owned by the Morgan Trust, have
already been laid up, and more
will follow unless they continue to
be run at a dead loss. .The position which confronts the Trust is
that it cannot earn dividends on its
enormouB capital without keeping
its plant working to its full oapa
city, and it oannot keep its plant
working to its full capacity in the
present oondition of Atlantio busi
ness. That is the position over
whioh conferences are '.to be held,
and we sincerely hope that the
conferences of the promoters of this
outrageous conoern will do them a
lot of good. There is only one way
out of the difficulty for the trust,
and that is the devotion of enormous sums of money to the im
provement of its fleet. For finan
oial reasons that way iB closed. The
promoters are certainly not going
to subscribe the money, under
writers have their safes full of the
scrip now, and the public will have
nothing to do with its securitJea.

What then? Conferences can
find no solution of a problem suoh
as that. The Cunard company is
discovering the same kind .of competition as that affecting the Shipping trust, but the Cunard company is able to meet it. The proportion of poor boats to good boats
in the Cunard fleet is normal. It
can meet' the competition in two
ways, first, by cutting rates on the
slow boats, and second, by improving the calibre of itB fleet." It iB
doing both of these things. But in
order to do the former, it is obliged
to withdraw, as it has done, from
an arrangement with the truet
The trust itself can do neither of
them successfully, and the action

James Dunsmuir.
Senator Macdonald of Viotoria
vigorously supported hiB leader.
He said:
"Now, who are the class of people that demand this legislation at
the hands of the government?
They are, of course, the white labor, union labor chiefly. Does
union labor at the present moment
deserve anything of this kind?
What is uniou labor doing? It is
crippling our industries, it is retarding progress, it is doing everything to injure every oountry
wherever the union stands. They
go beyond reasonable bounds.
They are not satisfied with fair
wages and a fair number of hours
to work, but they must try to control everything and hsve it in their
own hands. It cannot be denied
that union labor does a great deal
ol harm and injury to the oountry,
not only to this country, but to the
neighboring states, where millions
and millions of money have been
lost through union strikes during
the past year. Do tbey deserve
this legislation? Had they showed
themselves deserving ol this, then
they should be entitled to some
consideration, but under the conditions that exist, they are not entitled, and Chinese labor ought to
be a kind ol set off against strikes.
I think the day is not far distant
when you will have to get Chinese
labor to meet the unions. White
labor is going to ruin the oountry,
it is becoming so unreasonable."

A MIRACULOUS ESCAPE
Imperial Limited With 150
Passengers Leaves Rails
—Nobody Hurt.
Winnipeg, July 3.—The eaBt
bound Imperial limited train left
the rails near here today while going at a speed of 50 miles an hour,
and, miraculous to relate, scaroely
anyone was hurt.
Owing to the delay caused by a
slight wreck to a freight train near
Moose Jaw, the limited was running fast to make up time. The
train consisted of the engine, tender, baggage car, diner, tourist and
three sleepers. There were in all
150 passengers, many of whom
were Ontario people returning from
the Pacific coast and the Presbyterian General Assembly.
The accident occurred at 6.35
this morning, two miles east of
Rosser station, or about 14 miles
from Winnipeg.
The engine and all the oars, except the rear sleeper, were derailed
and piled in indescribable confusion. It was almost miraculous
that there were no fatalities; there
was not even a broken limb.
The engineer and firemen bravely struok to their posts, and the
horrors of a burning wreck or the
scalding by escaping steam were
averted by the presence of mind of
the crew.
The passengers were brought
here and sent east by the regulai
express this afternoon.

SIMILKAMEEN CITY, B. C
Now Is the Time to Buy Lots
in Similkameen City, B. e.
CAMP HEDLEY is the most talked of oamp in the province, and situated in the centre is Similkameen City, surrounded by
rioh mines whioh will shortly have large payrolls. Over 200 lots have been sold to business people who realize that Similkameen will become the metropolis of this distriot. The Nickel Plate mines have expended $300,000 in development and are at
present building tramways and a 40-stamp mill. Arrangements are being made for the erection of a large Bmelter at Similkameen City which will oost about a million dollars. Besides the Nickel Plate group of olaims being developed by one of the richest
mining companies in North America, there are several other groups and properties whioh will shortly be developed,'among them
being the Kingston Mines, Rollo, Wellington, Winnipeg, Red Chief and Pollock. Situated as it is in the beautiful Similkameen
valley, midway between Princeton and Keremeos, and protected Irom all opposition in the valley by adjoining a large Indian
reservation, this townsite will become one of the principal mining camps of the Paoifio Northwest. It waB only a short time ago
that lots in Rossland, Nelson, Greenwood and other mining centres were selling for the same price that they are today being Bold
for in Similkameen.   Come in before the boom and double your money.
Similkameen City to Have Two Railways.
The Viotoria, Vanoouver & Eastern and the Canadian Pacific railways are starting immediate construction for the Similkameen,
which will make this town a railroad centre and divisional point, and when these competing lines are completed through to the
Paoifio ooast they will become the main through lines, being the shortest route from the interior to tbe coast. A large sawmill is
running steadily on the west addition, the only available timber for mileB around. The main street is 90 feet wide, being all'
cleared and ready for building purposes. All railways, roads, telegraph and telephone lines will have to come through this
townsite, which is looated in the centre of the whole Similkameen valley and will become the largest distributing point and
mining oentre in British Columbia.
Similkameen City Lots Will Make You Rich.
A large agricultural area to draw from.   Pure water, fine climate, rich mines, big payrolls. "~~
