An important Meeting This Afternoon—Union Efforts to Preserve
the Peace*'
San Francisco, Aug. 5.—Whether the local lalior trouble is to he
terminated or whether it is to be
extended to other scenes and possibly to other coast cities will
probably be determined this afternoon. The managers of the Employers' association are to meet
then and to decide on their final
position. Only two vessels lett
port yesterday.
The city council has manifested
a disposition to inaugurate a war
of retaliation against the employers who persist in an attitude of
hostility toward the unions. The
Longshoremen's union has appointed 50 extra pickets and
adopted resolutions censuring all
persons who have engaged in
quarrels with non-union, men or
the police during the strike and
calling.upon all union men to do
all in their power to preserve the
peuee.

Editor Evening World.
Sir:—['observe that the personal
organ of Mr. Bernard Macdonald
is now intent upon destroying public confidence in the flotation of
Kossland mines. He has driven
hundreds of the best miners in
America out of the Kossland camp,
and is now on the war path against
Hosslaiul mines. But who is the
gentleman now posing as a mining
authority as well as a journalist. I
menu Mr. Bernard Macdonald. I
only refer to the name because
there will be a broad grin throughout the community at the mere
supposition that Mr. Bernard Macdonald is a journalist. He has got
a journal and he has got it bad.
What is his record 1 sny? Can he
point to any one single mine in
America that he ever made 11 success of? Is he proud of his connection with the "Dufferin" In
Nova Scotia? Is he tickled to
death over his marvellous report
as consulting engineer <>f the 'Republic'?" Does he split his sides
with laughter when cogitating over
his report on the ore values in the
Payne? Is he convulsed with
humourous reminiscences when
looking backward to his own personal interests in certain western
mines, anil the old days when he
and Bela Kadish were pals? and
does he congratulate himself now
of getting rid of Mr. Hudson from
Northport and placing in his place
Bela Kadish, an Oregon ore
sampler? We know what became
of the frog that endeavoured to inflate its body iu competition with
an ox. Mr. Macdonald should be
warned in time. A little brief
authority . has tempted him to
wreck a great mine and a progressive community. He deserves
no sympathy from any man interested in the progress of British
Columbia.

Colorado.

A BITTER FIGHT
The Billion  Dollar Trust
and Organized Labor.
NO QUARTER ASKED OR GIVEN
Shaffer Declares He Is Prepared-
Labor Is United and Will Fight
to a Finish.
Dlasal NaturaluT K«bIB|.
Pittsburg, Aug. 5.—It is now a
fight to the bitter finish between
the gaeat billion dollar trusts and
organized labor. Mr. Shaffer says
that he is ready by every peaceable
means within his power to win a
victory.
No quarter is to be given and
none will be requested. The entire management of the strike has
been placed in the hands of
President Shaffer. He has absolute power to call out every man
who is connected with the organization and he intends to do it. He
is satisfied with the progress of the
fight to date. He finds that none
of his battle lineB have been
broken.
The promise is made by Mr. Shaffer that the trust will find that the
Amalgamated association has
strong roots in many of its mills.

ROSSLAND
IS THE SPOT
A Doctor on His Travels-
There Is No Place Like
—Rossland
Dr.Coulthard and J.H.Watson of
the Bank of Toronto returned to
the camp last night after an interesting ride through the Boundary country. They were away
for some twelve days, and covered
400 miles. The doctor says the
fly fishing on Kettle river is splendid, and great bags were made for
several days. Tho pair visited
Meteor and Republic camps on
their trip and met many Rossland
miners at work. The men all said
they wanted to get back here when
the strike is over. "There is no
place like Rossland after all" they
said, "and you bet we'll get there
when the time conns," "and 1 say
the same" said tho doctor after
finishing a good lish story, "1 have
been all over the Kootenays and
I'd rather stay with RoHsland under all and any circumstances,
than any place 1 have struck. I
see that Allen the restaurant keeper says the same thing from another point of view, and I agree
with him. Rossland is the spot for
me."

himself  in   the   Imperial service,
was enquired after.
A writer in the Toronto Globe
recently declared that the annals
of the British army record no instance of success equal to that of,
Col. Girouard adding, "To be made
a K.C.M.G., and a lieutenant-Colonel by merit at 34 years of age is
without precedent or a parallel.
Canadians have reason to be proud
of their countryman."
Mr. Justice Girouard said yesterday in speaking of his son, that he
was being feted and made mush of
in London at present, but would be
in Canada again before long.

TWISTING THE LAW.
The union men at Northport and
union men generally are not dismayed or greatly troubled over the
unfair injunction obtained by
Bernard Macdonald from the
United States court at Seattle.
The men rightly agree that the
move will tell very strongly against
the smelter management in the
long run, and in any case will not
avail tljem at Northport to any
great extent.
The whole proceedings from the
start are a fair sample of the way
a big corporation will evade and
twist the law for its own evil purposes. Here is practically a British corporation doing business in
the State of Washington and duly
incorporated under the laws of that
state, seeking and obtaining incorporation in the adjoining State of
Idaho—where it admittedly has no
property or place of business—in
order that it may be registered in
the State of Washington as "a
foreign corporation" and as such
apply for extraordinary protection
from the United States courts.
a.
Of course this is twisting the law
around and away from its original
design, yet the smelter company
with ils backing is able to obtain
from a subservient court on an
ex-parte application nn order forbidding the ijieii from even notifying workeff*,'brought to Northport
under the most gross deception, of
the true state of affairs, and although the union side was not represented when the court order was
made,it binds the men until September 18th or for nearly two months.
It is diffiau.lt to understand a judicial mind which would permit a
powerful corporation to trample on
working men in this fashion without at least hearing what they had
to say about it. But the judges
have outraged public opinion too
far and the newspapers on the
other side of the line have made
haste to disassociate themselves
from the odium which will surely
be attached to these outrageous
proceedings. The Spokesman Review, a strongly anti-union paper
sounds a note of alarm and the
Portland (Iregonian has tbis to say
about an injunction recently granted by Judge'Gager,of Connecticut,
upon very similar terms as the one
here complained of:
"Under this rule a striker could
not talk with another workman
at any place or time with a purpose to convert him lo the strikers
cause, under penalty of being punished for contempt of court, If
this injunction will bold water as
lhe law of the land, why, then, the
judge can forbid the holding of
public meetings by the strikers
and the delivering of addresses
designed to influence non-union
workmen, and prohibit the printing of reports of such meetings
in the newspapers. This Connecticut injuction is a direct blow at
free speech, the right of public assemblage and the freedom of the
press, Since all these things are in
danger by logical extension of the
doctrine of contempt of court set
forth in Judge (lager's injunction.
What labor asks at the hands of
capital is not the beneficence that
is dictated by self-interest, but
simple justice."
When the well known anti-union
stand which the (Iregonian has
always taken in labor matters is
recalled, the emphatic language
quoted above must be taken as
a clear indication of how the
press of the United States views1
the recent action of the judges.
NOTKS AND COMMENTS,
Tho Rossland Miner is being
rapidly put on tbe hike by an irate
public for its stand against the
union.—Leader.
Kicking ahout the eight-hour
law is a waste of breath and calling the country's legislators rubes
is liable to act as a boomerang.—
Sandon Paystreak.
Organized laber'ls here to stay,
and the sooner corporation managers recognize the fact the better
it will be for all concerned. A
single union may meet with defeat
once in a while, but its members
will again organize and be stronger
than ever.—Moyie Leader.
A court may enjoin strikers from
trespassing or even picketing on or
about private property, and it may
restrain them from .using threats,
intimidation, force or violence for
the purpose of compelling men to
quit work, but it may be questioned whether a court will declare
that a striker may not use orderly
pursuasion to induce a man not to
work, just as employers may use
the same method to convince their
employes that it is to their advantage to remain at work.—

Conditions must be becoming desperate when a mine manager is
forced to buy a newspaper to defend himself. It may take more
than the efforts of the Rossland
Miner to convince the people that
Manager Macdonald is right.—
Leader.
The Victoria Times referring to
the complaints set out in the mine
owner's memorial.says: "It may be
unfortunate from the stand point of
some of them that the mines are
not in the United States. In the
general opinion, taking the laws as
a whole into consideration, it is an
advantage."
The minister of mines concluding
a lengthy interview with a coast
paper last week said: I, personally, am very sorry that the mine
owners have taken the course they
have, not so much from a political
point of view, as from the fact that
their representations can do no
good, and, if anything, will do
harm to the industry represented
by them. As minister of mines,
it has been my aim to offer every
encouragement possible for investment of capital, and to co-operate
as far as possible with those who
have interests in this country, at
the same time endeavoring to hold
the balance evenly and impartially as between the employer and
employe, recognizing that the interest of the owner is equally important as that of the other, and
that the prosperity of both is essential to the prosperity of the
country in general.

NOTICE!
TO any customers who patronized us
all the time while they have been
at work, and especially to those with
families, we beg to announce that we will
trust them to all the goods they may
need during the strike and will wait for the pay
until they start to work again and be able to
pay. To those who need other stuff, such aB
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
our account until the trouble is all settled.
This is a bona fide offer, which fact can be readily proven when occasion  makeB it necessary.

THAT MEMORIAL
Provincial Press Condemn
the Document.
D. B. BOGLE IN THE COLONIST
The Petition Is Weak—Mine Owners
Association Was Simply Used by
Some Agitators.
Throughout the province the
press has almost unanimously condemned ihe Mine Owners' petition
to the Dominion government.
The Victoria Times can lind no
redeeming point in the petition,
and in the Colonist David B. Bogle
in a special article, written at the
request of the Colonist editor, re
views the petition taken by the
mine owners antl shews up the
author of the famous petition in
great shape. In concluding his review Mr. Bogle says:
I would Bay that is quite an appropriate suggestion indeed, and
would add to the quotation by saying that the scab is also the filthiest part of the wound, and what
becomes of the scab when the wound
is healed? it wastes away, little by
little—ull the same, Hossland
Miner.
Yours truly,

l<i)*i*;liinil, in the Province of Kritieli
Columbia, heretofore trading and carrying 00 buuinesa under the firm name
ami style, Mii'donald & Co , as dealer
in candies, etc., by a deed of assignment
for the benefit of cred.t'.rs, bearing date
17th dav of July, 1901, made in pursuance of the "Creditor's Trust Deeds
Act,'' aud Amending Act-, has
gr'.nted and assiuned to Henry Ed-
waid Arthur Courtnev, of Kosalund
aforesaid, barrister at haw, all his personal estate, credits and effects which
mig.it be seized under execution and all
his real estate, ill trust to pay tl e cred't-
ors of Ihe Baid Murdo Mackenzie Macdonald, ratenbly aud proportionately
theri just debts.
The said deed was  executed  by tbe
eaid Murdo Mackenzie  Macdiinald,  ;ih-
It is   not  a  complaint  against (signor, and the said Henry Edward Arthur Courtney, trustee, en the 17th day
legitimate grievances nor an appeal for necessary reforms, but an
indictment against the province.
It is based upon a supposed condition of affaire which does not
really exist and buttressed by an
ex parte and disingenuous citation
of circumstances which ure distorted from their true meaning and unfairly applied in their real bearing.
Tbe memorial is weak, inaccurate,
ol July, 11)01, and the eaid trustee has
undertaken the tiuat created by said
deed.
All persons or ccporations having
claims ajtainst the said Murdo Mackenzie Macdonald must forward and deliver the same to the said trustee, with particular*! thereof duly verified oh or before
tbe 19th day uf August, 1901.
After the 19th day of August 1901, the

lower the credit and sully the reputation of the province among outsiders who are unable to discriminate between the truth ami falsity
of the statements which if contains
and apt through ignorance, to accept without question the inferences which it draws. It has unfortunately been endorsed by an
association containing men eminent in the profession and practice
of mining who have doubtless accepted the general - principle of
making a complaint ahout matters
wherein legislation might improve
the conditions under which they
work, but who have not taken the
trouble to investigate the statements contained in this memorial,
nor to consider its actual effect. It
would be decidedly to the advantage of the province and to that of
their own reputations, if gentlemen
in that position were to withdraw
from an association which has destroyed its reputation and prostituted its representative position,
which remains an instrument of
evil with no longer the possibility
of accomplishing any good."

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, iooo, 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 the foundation of the trouble rests on the fact that nearly one-half of the
employees in the mines of 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. W'e 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, although 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, icpo; 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 satisfactorily 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
he general public of this city.
Especially we ask your aid in maintaining order, without which  ve 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.
EXECUTIVE BOARD
ROSSLAND MINERS' UNION No. 38, W. F. M
