A TRAGIC STORY
Perished on the Trail in
Search of Gold.
SIX   PROSPECTORS   FROZEN
Abandoned a Sick Companion   and
Wandered Off in a Blizzard -
A Terrible Ending.
Nome, July 30, via Seattle July
23.—A tragic story comes from
St. Michael. A party of men enroute to Nome recently found the
bodies of six men at a point near
(Jape Romanoff.
Tt is presumed they all froze to
death during some one of the
terrible blizzards that prevailed
last winter. The Bodies were scattered at intervals, five of them
about a quarter of a mile apart.
Each had some camp equipment
near him, hut no food. One of the
dead men had been injured or sick
as he lay on a litter constructed
of a pairot oars nuda canvas sheet.
It would seem tbat the storm must
have overcome those carrying him.
Evidently becoming exhausted
they had abandoned him and
wandered off eacli for himself to
perish where found.
General Rand thinks they were
a party of prospectors, who, in an
effort to reacli St. Michael had
run out of provisions and perished
from exhaustion and exposure.

Writing from Toronto the good,
on 17th July, Chris Foley say B that
if it were not for the intense heat
he would almost be content to
make Toronto his permanent home.
All through the Eastern States
anil Canada and indeed iu the
middle and Western States the
beat has been intense this summer
so far, and great suffering has re-
Bulted.
In Rossland we have had ideal
weather all this month, and although yesterday was the first
really hot day Hub season a pleasant breeze made tbe temperature
bearable.
Rossland has a dreadful lot of
worries at the moment, but so far
as the weather is concerned we are
the most pleasantly situated spot
in America at the present time.
Yesterday the thermometer registered a little over 82 at 8 o'clock,
but today the glass was «0 at the
hour mentioned.
The WORLD tenders its respectful sympathy tu Mr. Foley in "Hot
Toronto" and to all other residents
in the burning east.
LOCAL SITUATION
John  McKane   on   Some
Mine Managers.
SCORES BERNARD MACDONALD
Wheels Within Wheels—Open Sympathy with the Union—Conciliation Should Be Tried,
Carpentera Union.
The executive board of the carpenters union is opposed to any
contract work being taken
up at the mines during the exis-
tance of the present strike and
wish it so understook by contractors aud those contemplating taking up contracts.

"Fighting John McKane" has been
visiting Nelson and the Tribune
representative obtained an interesting interview with him yesterday. Mr. McKane pays a warm
tribute to the general conduct of
the striking miners and in the
course of a lengthy chat on the situation here says:
"Why should Macdonald and
Kirby prepare and present obnoxious resolutions to the Rossland
Board of Trade with a view to enlisting the sympathy and support
of that intelligent and prominent
body ? Why ? I tell you what
there are wheels within wheels,
and a great many men in RosBland
who have no connection with the
labor unions are in strong sympathy with them in the present
strike, and many of thein appreciate the stand which has been
taken by The Tribune, which is
fair to the camp, in that it does
not go to the extreme either way.
What is needed much more than
anything else is an intelligent presentation of the present difficulty,
so that the public can understand
what is at issue between the men
who own the mines and the men
wno are required to work them.
There has been altogether too much
prating about the difficulties under
whicb capital labors owing to the
mining laws. Why not strike at
the reitl evil from which the Rossland camp is suffering, over-capitalization and manipulation for stock
exchange purposes ? Admitting
that the mining laws of British
Columbia are not by any means
perfect, have they inflicted the untold injury to this province done hy
the rottenness and robbery of the
late high-class promoters? The
present strike in the Rossland
camp is due largely to the desire of
the men managing over-capitalized
properties to make the labor unions
the scapegoats for their own sins.
Tbis is a phase of the difhculty
whicb should be fully understood
before any one attempts to pass
upon the respective merits of the
two parties to the labor dispute'in
the Rossland camp. It is not
solely a matter of wages. It cannot be because the advance demanded by the muckers iu the Le
Koi would not amount in a year's
operation to over £5000, and the
owners of the Le Roi are supposed
to have $15,000,000 worth of ore in
sight iu their property which only
requires the labor of the miners to
make it marketable. Mining
Companies when they $15,000,-
000 worth of ore in sight
do not usually abandon it
simply because £5000 have
been added to the cost of the property's working per annum.
As to lhe outcome of the present
trouble, Mr. McKane said that
matters had not yet sufficiently
cfystallzed to enable anyone to
speak with'assurance, but all hoped
to see conciliation tried, and there
was a general fi-eling that in the
near future common sense and
gooal fellowship will prevail and
work be resumed in what should
be the most prosperous mining
camp on the North American eon1
tinent.
A REPUBLIC
FIRE LOSS
The Damage $5000--Good
Work of Volunteer
Firemen.
About 1:30 on Saturday morning a tiny blaze was discovered
on the roof of the Gem restaurant
at Republic, says the Miner of
that camp,and an alarm waB immediately given. While the blaze was
being extinguished the flames
caught the roof of the Combination
saloon and spread over the entire
structure in a few minutes. The
fire department was soon on the
scene and with two lines of hose
and the chemical engines and went
to work vigorously. There wan
hardly a breath of air and the
sparks and flames went straight
up. The front part of the Combination was plastered, thus aiding
the firemen in their efforts. The
rear portion-was cloth and paper
lined and burned fiercely but fortunately there were no buildings
adjoining that portion, making
the work somewhat easier. The
blaze was extinguished in about an
hour. A stove pipe in the Gem
restaurant was the cause of the
fire.
Too much credit cannot be given
to the Volunteer fire company and
its officers for the masterly
way in which the fire was handled. The water supply was adequate as the water in the tank was
only lowered about 18 inches during the hour's fight. .
The building destroyed was
owned by Wm. Rutherford and
was not insured. The loss is
about 15,000. The adjoining
buildingB were only slightly damaged.

SUPPRESSED NEWS.
The solicitor for thc War Eagle-
Centre Star Mining companies re-
turn<€ from Toronto yesterday and
in an interview which appears in
this morning's paper, he comments
on the conduct of tlie Associated
Press in practically suppressing
the accounts of the miners strike
which was sent oul from Rossland.
The representative of the association in this city, dispatched a brief
but fair Btatement of the cafe
when the strike was declared, ar.d
the official at Vancouver who passed over the account and refused to
send it to the eastern Canadian
papers should be severely repre-
manded, as he must have done it
wilfully or through lamentable
ignorance.and in either case should
be censured.
The Canadian Associated PresB
is already in bad odor and every
paper in the country has, at one
time or another, registered a protest againBt the service and the
manner in which it iB conducted.
What with sendingouthigh colored
and misleading statements of facts.
suppressing real news eithei
through ignorance or wilfully and
in the selection of news usually
handled the whole service is
abominable and unreliable to an
extent only properly appreciated
by those who arc compelled to
edit the matter received.
Mr. Gait, the solicitor a foresaid,
has hardly had time since his return to properly grasp the real
situation here, but he is kind
enough to tell us that in eastern
Canada they all fancy that the
famous "little group of agitators '
alluded to by the RoSBland Dail)
Miner is wholly responsible for tin
present state of affairs in this
camp.
Mr. Gait is a Conservative and
possibly does not read the Toronto
Globe or he would have noticed
how ea«ily that paper slipped ovei
the fairy story in question by re
marking editorially that "such
statements are always made win n
a strike takes place and no particular attention need be paid to
them."
In the face of all that has taken
place here in the last ten days
even Bernard Macdonald'H paper
the Rossland Daily Miner has
abandoned the "agitator" position
as a perfectly untenable one and
in good time eastern Canadians
will be properly educated.
Had the Canadian Associated
Press heen impartial in tlie matter
and circluated the report sent tn
its headquarters at Vancouver, no
such statement as related by Mr.
Gait could have truthfully emanated from Toronto or any other
Canadian city.
It is an infamous thing Hint
above all other big and powerful
corporations the Canadian Associated Press dispatch organization should be the corrupt anil
partisan combination it is today.
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
According to (lie Engineering
ahd Mining Journal, a method
has been discovered for utilizing
coke ashes into the manufacture
of brick. The manufacture nf
coke ash' brick is very simple.
The ashes are carefully reduced to
a fine powder, mixed with one
tenth part of slaked lime, and,
after the addition of water, plugged until the mass formB a stiff
paste. Then it is treated like ordinary clay and formed into brick
by the use of suitable presses.
The bricka, are then stacked,  pro
tected from  rain and dried lo    the
air.   No artificial heat is required,
The air-dried brick aro very  hard
and makes excellent building  ma- i
terial.

latter uses the former as a catspaw,
and the directors of the War Eagle

THIRD HOT WAVE
Chicago and Other Cities
Again Suffering.
WORST IN TWENTY-SEVEN YEARS
Glass Showed 108 in Windy City-
Humidity   Overpowering — No
Sign of Change Today.
Chicago, July 2.1.—All heat records since the establishment of a
weather bureau in Chicago, 30
years ago were broken yesterday,
the government thermometer registering 103 degrees. Down on the
street it was three to five degrees
hotter, and to add to the suffering
a hot, Stirling wind, like a blast
furnace, blew all day from the
southwest. From 5 o'clock in the
morning, when the thermometer
registered 78, a gradual rise followed until at 4:30 p.m. the top notch
had been reached. Shortly after
that time thc wind veered around
toward the lake and caused a drop
to 95 at 8:30 tonight. Prostrations
were numerous and police ambu-
lences were kept busy taking care
of persons overcome  on tlie streets
From Omaha, St. Louis, Kansas
City, Cincinnati, Lincoln and other
points tho same story of intense
heat is reported. This is the third
hot wave this season, and it promises to distance its predecessors
both in intensity and duration.

DISAPPEARS
Fort Steele   People   Are
Worried Over Clarke's
Whereabouts.
Fort Steele has this week been
thrown into a fever of excitement
says The Prospector, by ti>e disappearance of Charles Clarke, for
many years collector of customs.
For a month or two past Mr. Clark
has been Buffering from nervous
prostration. On last Wednesday
lie left the bonne unnoticed, and
since then his movements can only
be with great uncertainty traced.
Tbe fear, however, is that in a
temporary abberation of mind be
an.ay have slipped into the river
'and been drowned. There was
nothing whatever in Mr. Clark's
domestic, financial or official re
lations to give cause for him doing
an injury to himself; but if this
has been the case it could only
have been in a moment of temporary abberation which deprived
him of all responsibility for his
actions.

Initial Shipment Said Not to Have
Given Good Value—Latest Quotations and Sales,
On the close of the local market
today the best bid for Homestake
was 4c. This is a drop of Uc within a day or so.
It was stated that the bear movement was started by the report
that the returns from the initial
shipment to Trail were not altogether as satisfactory as looked for.
There is nothing official to go by
and this stock is likely to stiffen
and regain at least its former price.

To thc Citizens and^Business Men of Rossland ami Viciitiltj and to the General Public :
The business and social interests of a community art: so closely interwoven in a community like Rossland, that any dispute amonjr 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 corporations 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 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 thc 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 Hood 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 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
