;^ift)iingstown, Ohio, July 15.—Not,
a wheel was turned this morning
tn any of the plants of tho Ameri
•can»Stcel" Hoop company or Am-
eri_h,ii Sheet Steel company in the
^Jioiiing Valley. The Sixth district is tho strongest numerically in
tnC Amalgamated Association and
the men are a unit in observing the
strike ,01-dcr issued hy President
ShafreV. The Steel Hoop company
has five plants in Youngstown,
(iirurd, Warren and Greenville and
the Wieet Steele Combine has four
in Stmthers, Niles, all are re-organized.
Vice-President Ward on Sunday
orggjiizcd the men of the new four
mill plants, nf Un- Niles Iron and
Sheet company. In this valley
7500 men are directly or indirectly
affected by the strike.
This strike hears a resemblance
to the historical Homestead strike
in laStl_, in that it is not a question
of wages, but oi recognition of the
Amalgamated Association. The
association insists unionizing all
the plants of tlie three companies
in question.
The manufacturersrefusato grant
this demand, saying lhat the individual contracts with workmen are
in force at a number of ihe plants
must stand.

Editor Kvioxi.N'ii World,
Dear sir—I desire as president
of the. Rossland Hoard of Trade, lo
repudiate the construction placed
hy the Itossland Miner on the letter of this hoard to the secretary
of thi- miners union which was
published with wholy unauthorized head lines hy the Miner in Sunday's issue. And 1 especially desire to point out that the Rossland
Board ))f Trade has never intimated that the strike resolution was
-:|*l!arried by fraud or by fraudulent
ifltent, but hy a misinterpretation
of a clause in the constitution of
tho Western Federation of Miners.
Yours truly,
J. B. Johnson.

No More Conferences~The
Companies Statement
on the Strike.
New York, July 15.—Vice-PreBi-
ilcnt Warner Arms of the Ameri-
i-iin Plato company, who has just
returned 1'rnni Pittsburg, where he
attended the conference between
the steel manufacturers and the
Amalgamated association, said last
night of the strike- that the question at issue was the right of the
three companies tn run their own
mills and tn pi'ntect tho men who
worked in them.
No question of wages was involved. Under this year's scale
the men were getting higher wages
than ever before, The demand
nf tin- Amalgamated association
was that every plant be made a
union plant, The companies had
oifered to give the union more
mills than over before, but insisted
on protecting the non-union men
in tho non-union plants, many of
whom did not wish to become
union men. Many of the manufacturers who wont into the combination owning non-union plants
did not wish to havo their factories
run on it union basis.
Mr. Arms did not care to say
what the effect of the strike would
ba on the steel market. He said
the company would ask for no
more conferences, but would be
willing to meet the representatives
of the strikers if they had any concessions to make. He was unable
to forecast how long the strike
would last. The strike was unfortunate, because the plants wen- inundated with rush orders.
The nicest and   freshest berries

Thos. Costello, well known in
Rossland, returned yester'day from
Phoenix where he hasbeen tho past

Liljegran's  Visit  to   the
Ferndale Group—Interest Revived.
K. W. Liljegran of the Humming Bird mine in the Boundary
country visited the Ferndale group
on Lake mountain on Saturday
and yesterday went on to Spokane
on business. Mr. Liljegran, who
is remembered here as one of the
earlier superintendents of the Lo
Roi mine, thinks the discovery on
the Ferndale group more than usually important, and everyone
here who is watching the development of the Homestake and south
hell properties generally will agree
with him. It is recalled, that just
before the War Eagle property
cloBed down the Crown Point, one
of the best strikes ever made in this
camp took place there. The matter
was kept quiet at the time but is
generally known now.
if the Ferndale property is
systematically worked with good
results it is likely to attract attention to this section of the south
belt again and cause a lot of properties which have long been idle
to be looked over and possibly reworked again.
Mr. Liljegran will report on tho
Ferndale outlook while in Spokane
and it is likely further developments will be announced   shortly.

No Change in the Situation
Here Today.
MINES  PAY  MEN FOR JUNE
Rossland Newsboys Union Declares
Against the Morning Miner-
Miners Are Quiet.
Hello, II iribiv,   oox. ol strawberries
Phone 171, V. & N.
There was no particular change
in the strike situation today.
The War Eagle-Centre Star companies after issuing a notice on
Saturday that they would not be in
a position to settle with the men
today for June and July owing to
the rush of work, changed their
policy and paid off their men up to
the end of last month today and
later will settle up  for this month.
The Rossland Ureal Western
company for the |,e Roi group paid
off their men (inlay fnr June and on
the I7th will pay tin- balance.
Tin- Rossland News Buys' Union
decided on Friday last nol to deliver or sell the Rossland Daily
Miner, hut acting nn advice called
a regular meeting of their union
for Saturday evening when they
formally decided upon the strike,*
it being statod that their action was
iu sympathy with the strike of tho
Miners' Union and on account of
(he stand taken in the matter by
the Miller.
The machines and tools in the
mines have been removed lo the
surface and the only men on the
properties are those authorized to
remain by the union to prevent injury, viz, pnmpmen, firemen and
engineers on main shaft.
There an- many rumors of various kinds afloat about town but
they lack reasonable conformation.
The men aro good natured and
orderly and there has been no disturbance of any kind.
We offer a strike price on nice,
large cucumbers af $1 per dozen,
or three for 25c.   Paulson Bros, tf f'Hfc

A.N "IMPARTIAL" ACT.
If the Rossland Board nf Trade
really desired lo play tin- role of
mediator at the present moment,
and desired that the union and
the public generally should so regard their efforts, they havie heen
singularly unfortunate in the
methods which they have so far
adopted.
The members of the union executive board were thoroughly
conversant with exactly what took
place at the first meeting of tin-
Board of Trade and were well
aware that many of the members
were violently and openly opposed
to the union generally.
Under thc circumstances the
union men could hardly regard
the Board of Trade as' an impartial, and certainly not as a friendly
organization, yet tiny met the
special committee courteously, and
frankly stated the facts which led
up to the strike.
So good an impression did they
make upon the committee that
subsequently many of its members
did not fail to openly assert they
had been misled in their understanding of the whole matter involved.
The Board of Trade's next formal act was to send the union a
lengthy communication, couched
in fervently friendly terms, <[Ues-
tioning the legality of tho union's
action under the bylaws of the organization and asking that thc
Jioint should he considered. This
letter was handed in about 3
o'clock on Saturday afternoon.
The union at once replied asking for time to consider the matter
and requesting that no further step
be [taken until their formal reply
was sent in.
Under these circumstances it is
difficult to understand how . the
Board of Trade permitted the
Morning Miner to appear in the
shape it did yesterday.
Messrs. Macdonald and Kirby
are both members of the Board
of Trade and were both present al
its initial meeting on Friday evening. Their control of the Rossland Miner is unquestioned. The
Board of Trade knew perfectly,
what the Miner would do with
their letter if opportunity offered
and the Board of Trade must beheld strictly responsible for the
disgraceful exhibition the Rossland
Miner made of itself and them in
its issue yesterday morning, when
it charged the vilest kind of fraud
against tho union in its head lines
and editorial comment.
The   Union executive   are   tn   be
warmly congratulated upon their
stand in tin- whole transaction and
upon the excellent public impression, their conduct has created.
They will be readily understood by
everyone if they decline lo further
discuss the point attempted to be
* raised by the Board nf Trade's
committee.
THE REAL AGITATORS.
There seems tn be a general concensus of opinion that the existing
state of affairs in Roseland is due
almost entirely to tin- work of unprincipled agitators who, if the
camp and the mining industry is
to progress and nourish, should
be now so heavily sat upon that
peace may be assured for the future.
Tin- World cordially agrees
withjthe proposition and trusts that
one of the effects of the crisis
through which Rossland is now
passing will be the absolute prevention of a class of tactics the
camp is thoroughly sick of.
The fair presentation of the
men's side of all the circumstances
which have led up to the present
strike by the executive board of
the union and their temperate and
constrained attitude previous to
and since thc strike stands out
in marked contract to the conduct
throughout of Messrs. Macdonald
and Kirby and their official organ
the Rossland Daily Miner. As the
real facts of the ease become more
apparent lo all disinterested onlookers it becomes less necessary
to indicate the real agitators and
disturbers of the public peace. If
any lingering doubt exists in the
mind of the community as tn who
is alone responsible for the exist
ing unpleasantness, a little further
time and consideration is all that
is necessary to fasten firmly and
for all time upon the shoulders of
Messrs. Macdonald and Kirby the
burden of reproach for what has,
and is happening.
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
The Trail News thinks the strike
is a repetition of the agitator evil
and that it is an expensive way of
finding out who are the friends and
enemies of organized labor. Fair
weather friends are no good at any
time but it is worth a good deal to
find out the other sort of both kinds
The letter of the president of the
Board of Trade denouncing the
action of the Rossland Daily Miner
yesterday, was handed in this
morning and appears in another
column aif this issue.

COMMUNICATION.
Editor Evening World.
Sir,—Being a resident property
owner, and hoping for the best interests of   the  community, and in
view of the present unsettled condition that affairs have been coming to, I heg the  privilege of a  few
lines,  as I find it difficult, having
once been associated with the working man, to   refrain   from   taking
part in such controversies—I may
say that I  have   been a reader of
both the present Rossland papers.
I am afraid the real issue is being
somewhat overlooked by the evening paper and totally ignored by
the Miner.   If   I understand  tbe
issue it is the $2.50 and $3.00 ques-
tiou, and all that rot about click,
Ting, coteire fraudulent strike, constitution and other Barney blarney,
seems to be an effort on the part of
its originator to drag the working-
man   down   into   the Miners' own
Billy subterfuge   and   by so doing
evade the whole question and one
that has been a constant menace to
the public   for   the past   six years
and will continue to be in the fu
ture if not rightly settled once and
for all;—can   the   Hossland   companies afford to pay the going scale
of wages or must they be forced to do
what other less valuable properties
concede is right ?   I observe that a
portion of the Board of Trade offer
to pose as mediators in this affair
I should like  to   know   if Messrs.
Kirby and  McDonald favored this
move, or if tho Board of Trade has
been made thoroughly acquainted
with the value of the  Le Roi ore,
its extent, cost of   mining, cost of
shipping and treating, what it coBts
to run a smelter or mine with scab
labor, whether it is possible to pay
big dividends on the present stock
valuation.     Then,   on   the   other,
hand, what it coBts to live in Rossland.    Figure out what any one
of those who are trying to  pose aB
arbitrators—would have at the end
of each month working as hard as
it is posBible for   man to   work for
$60 per month.    Go to the church
yard and count the graves; go to
the hospital and count the crippled
and blind.   Don't forget ,to counl
the widows and little ones in their
.distress and poverty, made through
the dangers of   their   fathers' employment.   Having   considered all
these conditions and chanceB, having conclusions well   founded on
reason,   justice,   and   facts, allow
h6neat convictions and principles
to rise   paramount to the love of
dollars.then you will be fit to act as
mediators.     Statistics prove   that
men   employed   in   quartz, mines
work 67   per   cent,   of   the time.
Owing to the system driving   and
firing, please  tell us just hew the
$2.50 man   may   live the other 32
per cent,  of  the  time or between
jobs?
Again, 33 of 34 mining camps of
British Columbia pay from $3 up
why cannot, or will not Rossland
mines? A few years ago when
they were prospects and developing,
paying freight and treating
rates, we were told to wait until
transportation and other expenses
came down. Now we are told,
"you have established this scale of
wages and we can't change it.''
Now, Mr. Editor, there is one
principle manifested in this strike
which should appeal to the better
sentiment of the public and commend itself to the community, and
that is the fact that this city has
the hardy sons of toil who are willing to lay down their own tools and
take up the battle of the weak, and
try to help those that cannot help
themselves, and are in need of help.
To this class of men you will
never look in vain to fight for the
right. It is this class of men that
you can depend upon to, protect
your homes, your country and your
honor—and no doubt the average
citizen will feet proud of these men,
who, having nothing themselves to
gain, will strive to better the condition of the community and their
fellowmnn, a characteristic seldom
found outside of union ranks, such
motives should be praised and held
aloft as worthy motives emanating
from holiness and no less a hero
than he who dons his uniform and
brass buttons, bids his friends good
bye, and marches away inspired by
martial airs in a halo of hosannah
and glory. He is a patriot, a hero,
a soldier; the power of a kingdom
is with him. The progress of a
nation for him—and glory crowns
his feeblest effort. But the poor
toiling drudge who, without martial airs to improve him, without
brass buttons and glory, without
progress except by his beloved wife
and little ones, but with a fraternal
hand and noble soul, strives to help
his less fortunate brother who is
staggering under the weight of oppressions is branded an imbecile,
an agitator and a demagogue.

Rossland, B. C, July 12th, 1901.
To the Citizens and^Bttsiness Men of Rossland and Vicinity and to the General Public .-
The business and social interests of a community 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"carefulst'atement of all the reasons
leading us to precipitate this industrial strife at this time. Since the agreement between the
big corportations of Rossland and Rossland Miners' Union in April, 1900, this city has apparently enjoyed industrial peace ; yet all who are conversant with the industrial affairs of
Rossland for the past fifteen months know there has beep 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 betwejen 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 Rossland. 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.
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 ihis 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
