tbeir satellites for whom, however,
a day of reckoning would come
latter.
The resignation of Alderman
Petcb was accepted ae satisfactory.

Editor World:—I am, always
have been, always will be oppoBed
to tbe spoils syBtem. I was painfully surprised to see a proposal to
introduce it in munioipal matters.
Specially desirous of seeing Alderman MoDonald and his friends
bave a good reoord at tbe Counoil
board I interviewed that gentleman several times and urged him
to stand for no dismissal without
good cause being shown, and said
in every'such oase he should bave
my heartiest support. Not at first
receiving any assurance that equity
and fair play would predominate,
I got up a requisition for a publio
meeting to have been held last
Monday evening in order to appeal
from Caesar unto tbe greater Caesar. Alderman MoDonald on Friday week aBked me not to hold the
publio meeting and assured me the
motion to dismiss would only apply
to Mr. Long and to the temporary
offioe mas, Mr Heron. On Saturday I bad the Bame assurance and
withheld the meeting.
Last Tuesday night's meeting of
tbe city oounoil shows how I waB
jockeyed. If a man will not keep
hia promisee made after he is elected how can we expect him to keep
promises made anterior thereto?
Publio office is a publio trust and
trust vanishes unless based ou
truthfulness and honesty of purpose.
I may also say that in answer to
my request for cause  for  the die
missal I had several charges made
means, especially in the oounoil itself. Had the Robinson platform,
or the candidates who ran upon it,
stated that every oity offioial was
to be beheaded my vote would have
been different. And so would that
of many other, and the power to behead would probably not have been
granted.
The council tbis year has a
greater chance to make or mar the
future of the oity than has fallen to
the lot of former councils, but il requires united and continuous action
and that every energy of mayor,
aldermen and citizens shall be
bent to tbat end and not frittered
away in senseless equabblings and
biokerings.
Later I hope to express myself
on the platform on these matter*
and on the special needs of Rosslaud Smith Curtis

Th* Other Sid*
Editor World—If you will
kiodly allow me space in your pa
per, I would like to express my
opinion of Alderman Petoh's resig
nation, and the cause of it. Ia the
first plaoe I will say that I am an
Englishman, and believe in our
old maxim "fair play," no matter
what game we are at. I think one
of the foulest wrongs has been dene
to Alderman Petch that ever happened in munioipal politics; that
of putting him out of business and
driving him out of ibis oity, because he dared to differ in opinion
from some other people, and I
think the persons that are responsible for this aotion should be made
to suffer for it. Why did they
withdraw the oharges that they
preferred against  him?   Only  bt -
against one of tbe officials whom  I, cauae they aooomplisbed  their end
had good reasons to believe an ex-, bv making bim resign and go out
cellent, faithful servant. I investigated for my'own satisfaction, every
oneof the charges and found tbe official absolutely free of blame in
every case. One of the gravest of
these oharges waB preferred by
Aldermand McDonald in the most
positive manner and I found on
investigating it tbat he bad the
day before been fully informed of
the real faots which relieved tbis
officer from the slightest suspicion,
let alone stigma.
Until forced by stubborn facta to
do so, I hesitate to question any
one's motives; in faot, I have be-
of business.
As for myself I did not agree
with Alderman Petoh in wanting
to discharge all tbe oity officials,
but I would bave fought bim in a
fair and open manner, and not in
the mean and contemptible manner it wae done. I think it will be
found I am not the only one of
that way of thinking.

MASTERS AND SERVANTS.
During railway building in Man-
toba it was the ouBtom of the railway companie* concerned to bring
in men from eastern Canada under
contract to work for very low sume
per month rather than engage mon
at western prioes. Snowstorms and
layoffs generally, not to speak of
sickness, interfered much with the
regular daily wage.   But the board
bill went on.     The  consequence
was too often that the unfortunate
man was without a cent at the end
of his month's work.   Some suoh
methods applied,as all old pioneers
remember, in the building of the
extension from   Trail  to   Robaor.
Men were not hired in Rossland,
although there were many here out
of work, but were advertised for in
Seattle and elsewhere.   Similar occurrences took place in the building
of the Crow's Nest line, and here
sickness complioated matters, and
men   were   treated   in   the   most
shameful   manner.    There     wae
outcry    and      Mr.    Joseph
tration, then  truly has the Empire
Buffered from   the viceroyally   of
Lord Curzon.     As to the weakness
of the army it is  hard to eee where
this criticism is  justifiable, aad no
attempt is made by the Cosmopolitan     to   justify   it.      No   olher
nation     h*s    been     doing     any
fighting     in     Europe     of      late
so   it would   be difficult to institute, any comparison, but this oan
be said lhat foreign European military oritics admitted that Continental armies would have m ide wor.'p
mistakes under  the novel   condi
tions than did the Imperial troops.
Or, comparing with the Boers themselves it oan justly be pointed oul
that   whereas   the   British   never
failed to take an entrenched position of the Boers sooner or later,
the Boers never succeeded in taking
one that was held by British troops
either soon Or late.    Or comparing
with the third nation at war, that
of the United   States   itself,  Mr.
Walker of the Cosmopolitan may
be reminded that tbe pacification
of the   Philippines   began   fifteen
months before the outbreak of the
South    African    war   and   those
islands, eighteen months after its
cessation, are -still   awaiting that
pacification.

Martin brought in an act
whereby any laborer engaged by
contract outside of the province
oould not be held to that contract,
no matter of however recent a date
just as soon as he had crosaed the
borders of British Columbia. Of
course this did away with all such
contracts. Now W. C. Wells has
introduced an amendment to this
a r.t permitting such a contract to
stand and J. A. Macdonald has
given a sort of tentative adhesion
to the amendment, providing that
it Bhould not be operative in oase
of a strike. Now, no such proviso
can be made. Any employer wish
ing to force down wages may simply engage a crew of men extra
provincially and bring them into
camp and then tell his old employees that from such and suoh a dat i
he proposes to do so and bo, cut
wages or anything else. The men
need not be brought in during a
strike, but there iB absolutely nothing to prevent an employer from
taking the course suggested and
foroing a Btrike. In the opinion of
the Would the member for Rossland will be making a mistak >, and
a mistake whioh bis constituency
will not be inclined to judge loo
easily if he favors any suoh legislation without the most careful
previous consideration.
THE BRITISH NAVY.
The Cosmopolitan in its current
issue declares that the British iu
India are weakened and that the
British army generally is of no use
and for these reasons Qreat Britain
will be bound to help Japan. One
would have thought the treaty obligation sufficient to any nation
claiming to have any regard to
honour, but apart from thiB one
hardly Bees where the British are
weakened in India. If to extend

ever been extended before in^any

of the weakness of Indian adminii-

In the course of the debate lust night
relating to the dismissal of certain city
officials, I stated that iu the event of an
amendment which I brought forward being thrown out, I should iriimodiately resign my seat on the council. At the same
time I challenged four either aldermen
to do the same, and my challenge was
accepted by Messrs, McDonald and
Petch, who doubtless stand prepared to
make good their word.
My amendment was rejected and I
beg therefore herewith to tender my resignation to take effect at once.
The object that I have in view in
adopting this course is to place upon record in the most public and emphatic
manner my disapprobation of the action
of the majority of the council in summarily dismissing without explanation, (investigation or trial, five officials of tbe
city, whom I believe to be honest and
competent men and worthy of very different treatment. And at the same time I
wish to have an opportunity of obtaining
from the electors of thiB city their verdict
upon the dismissal of these officials,
which proceeding I hold to be a piece of
gross and glaring injustice on the part of
the majority of thc conncil.
Yours faithfully,
F. W. ROLT,
Rosaland, Fob. 5th, 1904.
