Some of the men have been experimenting with thesmelter dump
and finding that values from $t> to

placer claim, and are proceeding to
work tiieir liirl with good results.
The men say that the values arc
likely to keep up, so long as the

MINERS  UNION TURNOUT
Magnificent  Showing  Made  on
Parade Today.
FIFTEEN HUNDRED MEN IN LINE
Capital Addresses Made by James Wilks, Rupert Bulmer and  R. B. Shed—A  Good Program of
Sports—-Grand Ball This Evening.
The sixth annual picnic of the
Rossland Miners' Union No. 38,
Western Federation of Miners, held
at the recreation grounds today
proved a genuine success in every
way.
The hearty support given the
Miners' Union by all the other
labor organizations in the city and
by non-union workers and citizens
generally, was a marked and pleasing feature of the parade, and the
festivities later on at the recreation
grounds.
..To the striking miners, who are
now appealing to the public for
sympathy in their efforts to obtain
justice and fair wages the unanimity, everywhere expressed today
with tbe cause must have been particularly gratifying.
At 10:80 tbis morning tin- parade moved .off from tlie Miners'
Union hall 1000 strong, and of
these fully 1000 men marched four
deep behind the banner of the Rossland Miners' Union, making a
splendid showing of the brawn and
muscle of the order.
Kirchner's Military band eighteen
strung, preceded by the Standard
bearer carrying lhe Union Jack-
Chief of Police Frank Vaughan ami
Marshall Kdward Hennigar,mounted on gaily decorated chargers,
headed the procession.
The News Boys' Union preceded
by the union standard were the
first to follow the band, and they
carried a humorous picture showing the Rossland Miner on the bog,
Which was greeted with laughter all
down tbe avenue. Tin- rest of the
unions followed in due order with
the miners bringing up the rear of
the procession. Marching in close
order four and sometimes live deep
the miners' procession stretched
from the ball clear along Columbia
avenue, nearly lip to Queen street
corner.
Among the numerous mottoa
displayed in the ranks were the
following:
"Arbitration implies Peace, Progress, Prosperity."
"It was a Hot day in Northport
still the Furnace Froze."
''Labor Organizations an- the
Bulwarks of Modern Society."—W.
10. Gladstone.
"Eight Hours for Labor for
Rest for Recreation."
"The Public Sympathy is Solicited in Our Fight for Justice."
"$8 Per Day."
"The Morning Miner is the
Mouthpiece of Organized Labor's
Enemies."
"W, P.   of  M. 60,000   Strong."
"Northport and Rossland (with
clasped hand) United We Stand
Divided We Fall."
"All Mine Owners Pay $3 in
Nelson, Ymir, Slocan, East Kootenay, Boundary, Lardeau. Why
Not in Rossland."
The procession lineed up for the
march as follows:
Marshall Hennigar.
Chief of police and staff
Kirchner's Military Band.
Newsboys union
Granite and Stone Cutters and
Drillers.
(Workers on Federal Building.)
Tailors union

Hotel keeperB and business  men
Miners union No. 38, W.F. of M.
Tlie line of march was along
Columbia avenue up St. Paul to
Second avenue and out along
Second avenue at the grounds.
Tbe streets were lined with people who showed their symyathy
wilh the men by frequent applause as the various unions passed along.
Prom a small platform erected in
front of the grand stand at tbe
grounds the speakers of the day addressed the assembled throng. Both
the stands were crowded and many
ladies were present. The
major portion of the audience
gathered directly around theplat-
i ferni.
Rupert Bulmer, president of the
1 Rossland Miners' Union was the
I first speaker. I Io made an earnest
appeal to the members of the union
to Bland firm (luring the present
trying times, and urged them to do
nothing which would forfeit tin-
great measure of public sympathy
which was already assured to thi'in-
The .whole nf the president's
Speech was an earnest plea on behalf of the justice of the unions'
cause and a strongly expressed desire that union men should stand
shoulder lo shoulder in the struggle now in progress. He warmly
thanked all those who had shown
their sympathy with the cause of
unionism by turning out and joining in tbe parade today and assured them tbat the miners union duly
appreciated such a demonstration
at the present lime. Mr. Bulmer
concluded with a plea, for moderation in the conduct of lhe strike
and assured the audience that a
victory was not as far of as some
people might fancy. Tho speaker
was greeted with very hearty applause throughout his address.
11. It. Shed, president of the North-
port Mill and Smeltermens' Union
was accorded a rousing reception-
lie said that when Bela Kadish
told tbe men to abandon their
union or quit work every union
man left his job promptly, (cheers;)
and for eight weeks they had held
their ground, only one man out of
the lot deserting.
"Today I can tell you, said Mr.
Shed," that Kadish yesterday trieil
to work No. 5 furnace und it froze
up, Then No. 2 was tackled and il
froze, and No. 4 shared tbe same
fate, and today they aro back trying to work old No. 5 again with
the same old gang and no better
luck." He expressed the gratitude
of thc Northport men for tho sympathy extended   to   them   by the
Rossland miners, and added that
they hoped to win the light hands
down, in the long run.
James Wilks, vice president of
■the Western Federation received a
;hearty round of applause when he
rose lo speak. He alluded lo the
high ollice he had been elected to
till and said the executive board of
the Federation well understood the
grave responsibilities they undertook at the present and they
would not be found wanting in
their duties. Mr. Wilks gave a
short resume of the successful
work already accomplished by tho
federation in the Province, and
promised an equally satisfactory
settlement of the present troubles
in time.
Mr. Wilks read figures from the
secretary of the Le Roi company's
report showing the ore now in
sight in that mine to be valued at
$20,000,000, and asked the audience
to say if these figures were correct
how could the manager refuse the
reasonable increase asked by the
shovelers and carmen, when it was
declared that 40 per cent, of the
gross receipts of the miue were
profits.
He declared   that   the  issue   at
stake was  a clear one.    Why was
it that the Le   Roi  mines  and the
War Eagle-Centre Star mines were
the only properties  in British Columbia who refused to pay a   living
wage to  their   shovelers   and  carmen? This was theis'suebeingfought
out and all   side   issues  should be
discarded.    He urged the members,
to trust the exeeutiue and not to be
misled by spies  and   spotters who
would do all they could  to try and
stir up strife in   tbe union  ranks.
Mr.  Wilks  said   that   the    union
would conduct the  light  in such a
way that when   it   was  over there
would he   no   had feeling   between
mine   managers  and     lhe     men.
Throughout     lhe     address     was
replete        with       sound      advice
and    cheering   encouragement  to
the men and   Ihe speaker's   utterances throughout, which were   frequently   anil   warmly   applauded
could not fail to have a most beneficial and steadying  effect   on   all
who heard   him.    The   vice   president   concluded  by assuring  the
audience thai when a fair and  just
settlement was arrived at   he was
satisfied    Rossland   would   enjoy
a long reign of peace  ond  prosper-
ity.

AN OPEN FIGHT.
The indications at the present
time all poini to a protracted struggle between the Mine Owners' As
sociation headed by Messrs. Bernard Macdonald, E, B, Kirby and
others and Organized Labor in this
western country. Messrs. Macdonald and Kirby have frankly declared War and no longer conceal
their line of policy.
Up to the present time the managers' line of attack has been a
persistent effort to break up the
union by a system of espionage and
blacklisting whereby any one at
all active or prominent in union
matters was promptly refused work
and efforts were constantly being
made to stir up strife and dissen-
tions in the ranks of the workers.
At Northport the first really open
declaration of war was made officially by Bela Kadish when lie declared: "We have determined
to break up your union at all costs
and unless you abandon the union
we will not employ you."
The famous ',black list" at North-
port alleged to coutain the names
of twenty-five "agitators" is in reality a list of the chief union workers and if they bad been "abandoned" and new officials chosen the
new men would have been promptly black listed also.
The union has taken the only
step left open to them. They have
been forced into their present policy
by the persistent and deliberate
acts of Bernard Macdonald and up.
on the shoulders of the mine managers and the'newspapers they now
control must rest the sole responsibility for whatever happens here
in the future.
No disinterested person now
doubts what the real situation is, or
for a moment credits Bernard Macdonald and his allies with really
acting in good faith.
The Woui.n shelled the manager
from the woods in the first instance
according to his own statement am'
he and his chosen friends must
light organized labor in the open
without any public sympathy to
aid them.
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
Asked to explain the cause of the
Transvaal disturbance, a boy of ten
wrote this :—"Kruger and Kaiiner-
hiilism, is one. He is a man of
bluil. Mr. Chamberling has wrote
to him sayin' come out an lite or
else give up tbe bind of the English
you have took. He is a boardutch-
man and a wicket heethin. Lord
Kitchener has sent for his goary
bind anil to liriim' back his scan-
derlus bed dedor alive." Another
boy's essay described Mr. (ihid-
stonc as having "loved everybody.
He loved publicans and einiieis
and irishmen, ba wauled tho Irish
to come to England and have home
rool, but Mr. Chamberlain says np,
no. so alars he got his bind up
and killed Mr. Parnel. Mr. Glad
stone died with great respect, and
is burrid in Westminster with
pieceful ashes."
Compared with these versions of
modern history, the following on
Queen Elizabeth is faithful:
"Queen Elizabeth was a vurgin
queen, and she was never marrid,
she was so fond of dresses that she
was never seen without one on.
she was beauteful and clever with
a red bed and freckles."—Chambers' Journal.
According to a special telegram
to the Spokane Chronicle dated at
RosBlandon Saturday, the Board
of Trade of that town, in its efforts
to bring about a settlement between
the miners and the managers of tho
I.e Roi and War Eagle mines, is
acting on the assumption that the
strike is illegal, because it was not
edclared in accordance with the
constitution of the Western Federation of Miners. The members of
that Board of Trade had better con-
line themselves to elucidating outpoint. The one point is: The
right of mine workers to form and
maintain unions. If they can convince managers McDonald and
Kirby that mine workers have that
right, the strike will end itself.
But if the right to unite for self-
protection is to be enjoyed only by
the superior classes, such as those
who become members of Boards of
Trade and Mine Managers'Associ
ations, then the inferior classes,
like mine workers, will undoubtedly
keep on striking whenever they
think they have a grievance.—Nelson Tribune.

Groceries, etc., which we do not carry, and cannot get credit, elsewhere, we will give them orders, on which they can get all they want on

CARPENTERS
STATEMENT
Resolutions   Carried   by.
the Local   Union~A
Notice.
The   Carpenters    and    Joiners
union of this city have   issued the
following statement to the  mine
managers, dated 15 July:
To mine operators:
On November 23, 1900, the following resolutions were passed by
Carpenters and Joiners union No.
1, Rossland:
Be it resolved—
Clause 1—That eight (8) hours
shall constitute a day's work. Carried.
Clause 2—That 13.60. per eight
(8) hours shall be the minimum
wage for the same.   Carried.
Clause 4—That for all overtime
and Sunday work time and one
halt, or 65 cents per hour, shall be
the minimum scale.   Carried.
Clause 5—That the conditions
contained in the preceding clauses
of the resolution take effect on
March 1, 1901.   Carried.
Clause 8—That the conditions
contained in these resolutions will
not apply to mine operators until
such time as the union will think
it advisable.    Carried.
At a special meeting of the Ross
land Carpenters and Joiners union,
held on July 11, the following resolution was carried unanimously.
Beit
Resolved, That we, the Carpenters and Joiners union No. ^Ross-
laud, tender our sympathy and
support to Rossland Miners' union
No. 38, W. F. M., in their struggle
for liberty, justice and the cause of
unionism, und that we come out
on strike in their behalf and for
the adjustment of other grievances.   Carried.
You will note that the union haB
had this matter under considera
tion for the greater part of a year
and now consider the time opportune that the resolutions should
come into effect, and therefore demand thnt the conditions as contained in clauses 1, 2 and 4 will
apply to mine operators as well as
tp contractors. We learn that the
scale of wages for carpenters and
joiners prevalent in the Kootenay
district, with the exception of Rossland, is $4 per day of nine (9)
hours. We therefore consider our
demands are reasonable and just,
as it only brings our wage scale up
to the established standard of the
district.
As to "other grievances," we demand the right for a walking delegate to enter your premises to solicit members among, the nonunion employes of the company
while off duty on such premises.
We object to your putting standing advertisements in papers
(through employment agents) for
carpenters when there are plenty
of competent men seeking work.
We object to you discriminating
in favor of non-union men.

Rossland, B. C, July 12th, 1901.
To the Citizens and^Business Men of Rossland and Vicinity and to the General Public 1
The business and social interests of^a' fcommunity are so closely interwoven in a community like Rossland, that any dispute among the industrial elements forming the social
structure, is often more disastrous to the business or non-combattant class around which
the labor and capital elements revolve, than to the actual combattants themselves. Thus
both labor and capital are morally obligated to strive to adjust their disputes, to protect
the social structure of which they are separate parts.
For this reason this union deems it well to make a careful statement of all the reasons
leading us to precipitate this industrial strife at this time. Since the agreement between the
big corportatioos of Rossland and Rossland Winers'Union in April, 1900, this city has apparently enjoyed industrial peace ; yet all whfo are conversant with the industrial affairs of
Rossland for the past fifteen months know there has been a secret warfare waged against
this Miners' Union, which has been nearly as destructive to the business interests of the
community as an open struggle between the two industrial forces, and worse in that there is
no apparent end to be seen.
We have given long and careful consideration to this matter and have reached the
conclusion that the foundation of the trouble rests on the fact that nearly one-half of the
employees in the mines ot this community receive about 20 per cent less wages than the
same class of labor in surrounding camps, many of which camps have a lower grade of ore
and are less favorably situated than Rosjsland. We believe that it is to continue to enforce
this unjust scale of wages that so many annoying practices have been introduced to undermine the prestige of this Miners' Union.of Rossland.
First.—An annoying system of espionage and blacklisting by which many of our
ablest members have been compelled to seek employment in other localities, althought of
unquestioned ability in their trade.
Second.—By revoking a time honored privilege of the Secretary being allowed to
solicit members among the non-union employees of the companies who might be off duty on
the premises of the companies, a privilege guaranteed us by the last half of Article 15 of
the agreement of April, 1900; thus preventing us from refilling our ranks depleted by loss
of members compelled to seek employment in other fields.
Third.—By connection with bogus employment agencies seeking to flood the overcrowded labor market with cheap foreign labor.
Finally.—By the largest corporation in this vicinity openly seeking and striving to
crush a sister union at Northport, Wash.
. 1        .
We believe all these efforts are mainly to enforce this unjust scale of wages and to"
prevent all efforts towards an increase. Therefore we have fully resolved that there can be
no industrial peace in Rossland and vicinity until this wage question is finally and satis-
factorialy settled. Then will this fair city enjoy the prosperity for which nature has so
evidently intended it.
For this result we ask the moral aid and support of the many diverse bodies making
the general public of this city.
Especially we ask your aid in maintaining order, without which we cannot succeed.
There can be no permanent settlement but a just settlement, and to this end we will
use all our power as an organization, and all the assistance of the Western Federation of
Miners.
We have right on our side and must surely win.

ROSSLAND MINERS* UNION No. 38, W. F. M
