TRYIN *   0 STIR UP THE UNION
Arrest of Martin Reacle on a Trumped Up Charge-Petition by City
Residents Against Scabs.
(Special to lhe Wniii.n )
Northport, Wash., July 27.—
There is another strike and more
trouble on at Northport. Chief Detective W, T. Swain, who lins practically been in charge of tho smelter works since the lock-out wns
decided on, lias liimsnlf gone on
strike for shorter hours and higher
wages.
Mr. Swain is not alone in the
matter. The men under his charge
demanded -fl per day and eight
hours instead of twelve. The
smeller management refused and
the "special constables" have left
for "pastures new."
At present the management
rave not been able to get any one
to take Swain's place although it
is slated that an application has
heen made lo l'inkertons for another chief and some more specials.
The arrest of two scab workers
at tlie smelter for righting and
currying lire arms has frightened
some of the townspeople and alarmed the smeller manager.
The townspeople have   prepared
the following petition   against   the
undesirable element" brought to
the town Iry tlie Binelter management to take the place of the union
workers. The pelilion in question
is addressed to'the town council and
as follows:
"We the undersigned1 business
men and taxpayers, respectfully
beg to request thai you take extra
precautious to preserve peace on
the streets of lhe city.
"We do not deem it the part of
the city government in any way
to take part In the present controversy between the smeltermen's
union and the Noi'thpnrl Mining
and Smelting company, but think
it the duty of tho police to preserve
such peace that any well behaving
person may walk ils streets safe
from molestation and insult.
"We believe that during such
occasions as the present an undesirable * element n attracted,
whose actions are detrimental to
both principals in such difficulties,
and more particularly to the reputation of the city as a law abiding
community,
"We pray that you appoint
such extra police as will carry oul
these views if they meet with your
approval."
The petition was presented to the
council but no action was taken in
the matter.
The lining of the two scabs for
violence and gun carrying has on
raged the smelter management
who have attempted to retaliate
by causing the arrest of Martin
Reed and two other union men on
a wild charge of highway robbery
and assault with intent to
kill. Jackson a scab worker, laid
tbe information and tiie matter
came up before the magistrate this
morning.
When the case came up the three
men were released on their own
recognizance to appear for trial
when called on. A strong effort
was made to put tlie accused
under bonds but the court refused.
The men laugh at the charge
and say it was only made as n
bluff anil without any hope of
obtaining a conviction.
The fact that the justice allowed
the men to go on their own recognizance and without bonds demonstrates that but little credence is
placed in the story of the prosecution.

Tho following is a true copy of
thc Mine Owners' petition forwarded to bis excellency the governor-
general at Ottawa for transmission
to King Kdward:
To His Imperial Majesty Edward
VII., King of British Columbia
and England:
May it please Your Exalted
Majesty. Your, petitioners, the
Mine Owners' association of British
Columbia, in Phair's hotel this day
assembled.
Greeting!
Prayeth.
1. Thatwe, the undersigned loyal
subjects of King William (McKinley) II, came into one of your
domains, to wit: British Columbia,
less than two years ago, to develop
the latent wealth of the  province.
2. That before our advent, things
were running along so smoothly,
that life was really uninteresting
in said domain of British Columbia.
3. That the development of milling resources, which began a few
years before our advent, has since,
by our efforts, been brought to a
practical standstill.
4. That much capital was Mowing into tlie province and the
Mother Country was being drained
of her investment capital, and none
of it was coining our way.
5. That we have always enjoyed
trouhle wherever we went with an
organization called the Miners'
Union, which we were unable to
down in any State in the Union.
li. That the said union is composed of agitators, cutthroats and
had men generally, from Bodie.
7. That we were discredited in
our own country and being out of a
job, were forced to come iu out of
the wet, and under your Hag.
S. That after coming here we discovered a lot of latent and undeveloped evils, which we immediately set aboul to remedy,and have
been busy ever since.
9. That when we came here the
population was 150,000, and is now
steadily growing less.
10. That a taxation of $5,144,550
is side-saddled upon the province,
which we, the mine owners, are
forced to pay off at the rale of
$2,.ri72,27*r> annually.
11. That in two short years we
will have paid it all off, while the
fishermen, lumbermen and other
jays al the coast, who dwell in cut-
glass houses and smoke union
made ten cent cigars, pay nit and
are giving us lhe vulgar ha! ha!
12. That the condition of mining
in British Columbia is as bad as it
can be and is rapidly growing
worse—ever since we came.
13. We therelore ask Your Imperial Majesty for royal relief, as
follows:
a. Repeal of the eight-hour law.
b. Repeal of the alien labor law.
0.  Repeal of the union.
il. Military law for Rossland and
Northport.
e. Repeal of lhe mineral tax.
f. Repeal of the boiler inspection
aet.
"ie deportation   of all   union
. Abolition of duty on Northport
coke.
j. Abolition of all customs duties
on goo Is for consumption in the
mining districts of British Columbia.
k. And several other matters too
numerous to mention.
And we, your petitioners will
ever (ns they have in the past)
pray.
(.Signed)   Bernard Macdonald,
Mine Owner.
Bela Kadish,
Smelter Owner.
P.S.—May it please Your Imperial Majesty, we, the loyal subjects of King William II, are up
against it, good and hard, this
time. One of our organs is now
edited by a Sheriff in Nelson and
to'lher over here is "rotten" and
we ask you for a royal commission
such as we are usually accustomed
to—say 20 or 25 per cent. Your
Majesty is also asked to sit upon
the government of the province, as
they are bold, bad men, who insist in looking through our books
and are continually making us
correct our ore returns, which is
exceedingly humiliating to men of
our high principles. We have
borne up under these strains for
two long years—at about $10,000
and cxb per—and our principals
are commencing to kick.
God Save the King.

A number of public building were
damaged. The crops of the country surrounding London were laid
low afid the telegraph wires torn
down. Several suburban transportation lines were temporarily
blocked as a result of the downpour, the water in some cases
reaching over the footboards of tho
trains.

A NEW WAR.
Let no man fancy that Bernard
Macdonald, the general manager of
tbe Le Roi group of non-union
minea and of the non-union
smelter ut Northport, is an idle
man in the happy days through
which we are all now passing so
pleasantly and cheerfully.
The manager's chief detective at
Northport has revolted and left the
seat of war taking the "extra
specials" along with him. At
present Northport and all the gold
in the smelter—and the Columbia
river—is unprotected. In addition
a new war war was declared in the
Rossland Miner today and it is up
to that gentle "assassin" the governor to call out his troops and
prepare for trouble. Just hearken
to this extract from  the "Shiner:"
"Perhaps the time is not far distant when it will be considered opportune for a newspaper to tell thc
truth about the careers of certain
of those who just now pose as the
living embodiment of all things
good and just in connection with
mining speculation; and when that
is done it is conceivable that the
parties referred to may learn what
it is to be held up to public scorn
and ridicule and very properly and
justly ostracized hy all who believe
in honesty and fair dealing."
It is evidently going to be a war
of "ostraoization" as the governor
was troubled over something of that
kind himself very recently.
Fight it out, gentlemen, by all
means, light it out. The columns
of the World are wide open tn
both of you, and although it may
harrow our feelings we will faithfully describe the encounter and
give a detailed list of the killed and
wounded.
ii
THE MINE MANAGERS.
The extraordinary document
prepared und issued yesterday a*
Nelson by the Mine Managers association in a shape of a memorial
to the Dominion government is a
fair sample of the foolish step
level headed men will sometimes
take, or he led into taking.
It is a hopelessly mixed up presentment, and will not be approv-
of by the average mining man of
this western country.
Commenting on the document
the Nelson Triliunesays this morning editorially:
"The Mine Owners' association
memorial to tho Dominion government had better never been penned. This view was taken hy
several members of thc association
when it was considered and adopted, At the last meeting of the
association an effort was made to
reconsider its adoption, but failed
because of the stand taken by the
Rossland members, one of whom
is its author. That it will have
no effect on future legislation is
now admitted. Premier Dunsmuir
and Attorney General Eberts
presented the case of tlie province
at Ottawa last January, and it
was done in a very able manner.
The facts presented regarding
taxation could not be disputed,
and had they been presented by
men in political accord with the
Laurier government, they might
have burn fruit."
Tht community will await with
some curiosity the government's
treatment of the memorial, but it
will only be to see just what
method is adopted in answering
the document, as it is far too crude
and too clumsily put to cause the
cabinet any embarrassment.
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
The more the strike on the Canadian Pacfiic railway is considered
tlie more apparent does it become
that it is essentially a case that
should be settled by arbitration.
Thc men believe that their wages
are too low, while their employers
declare they are the best paid trackmen on the continent. It is not
easy to judge between them, because the railway runs through bo
many labor zones, so to speak, that
the people of one zone are not competent to speak of the fairness of
the remuneration in another,
What would be good pay in Ontario would be wholly insufficient
in British Columbia, fof example,
and in any inquiry this inequality
would have to be taken into account. If arbitration were decided
on the men could resume work at
once, and whatever the result the
destructive warfare now going on
would at least cease.—Toronto Globe.
The Vanderbilts seem to be in
hard luck. They have carried
stock watering, to its limit, and no
further profits from that line of en-
terpris appear to be in sight.
Bonuses and bounties cannot be
extracted from the hard-headed
public to the south. An alliance
with the British aristocracy has
been draining their resources and
has led them to look about for relief. In their distress they have
turned to Canada, the home of a
generous people, ever ready to tax
themselves for others, especially
for the relief of foreigners. The
solicitor for the Collingwood Steel
company now announces that the
Vanderbilts have put their money
into that company and will proceed to draw from the Canadian
people $7 per ton on their steel
output over and above market
prices. It shall never be said that
we turned the needy stranger
empty handed from our doors.—
Toronto Sun.
A number of the churches are
closing for the summer, but it has
been observed that it is never too
hot for Satan to do business right
along at the old stand. But it is
probable that he is more accustomed to heat.

NEWS VIA TRAIL
Wants to Ship from the Big
Dump to Smelter.
ANY PLAN TO START THE MEN
The  Lone Count Photographed—A
Useful Union Institution -Tried
to Question the Right of it,
ATTHE CHURCHES TOMORROW
Trail, July 27.—There is a story
current here that Manager Macdonald planned to take legal action
against the Miners' union for declaring the strike. He claims that
the strike was not ordered in conformity with the constitution of
the Western Federation of Miners,
which required ah affirmative- vote
from three-fourths of all the resident members. It is as stated that
Mr. Macdonald got a member of
the union in good standing who
consented to bringan action against
the union for ordering the strike
which put him out of work. On
further thought, however, either
the mine management, or the
union member relinquished this
idea.
A report comes from Rossland
that Manager Macdonald of the Le
Roi means to start shipping thu
big second-class dump to the Trail
smelter. It is expected that a
force of men will be brought in to
work 10 hours for $2.50 a day to
1 >ad the dump on the cars. Serious friction is expected should the
effort be made.
At present one lone Swede is
working at the Le Roi. He is
loading this dump on the cars. He
is deaf to all overtures and holds
the fort alone from a crew of 1200
men who quit work in Rossland
mines.
The union men have successfully
photographed the Swede at work
and have also obtained a good
picture uf the lone worker at close
quarters to add tollie unionV'seali
gallery," an institution which was
started in Rossland two years ago
and which has since grown to j
rather large dimensions.
The scab gallery is based on the
same principle as the rogue's gallery at police headquarters in all
large cities, and it has proved very
useful in properly describing many
of tbe wandering scab element.
Walter H. Aldridge, manager of
the smelter here, said as to the progress made wilh the British Columbia refinery proposition: "Nothing has been decided yet as to the
location of lhe plant. In fact I
have heard nothing with regard to
that feature of the undertaking and
cannot say what has been done in
the direction of deciding on the location."

Rossland, 13. C, July lath, 1901.
To thc Citizens and Business Men of Rossland and Vicinity and to Ihe 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 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 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, although of
unquestioned ability-in their trade.
Second.— Uy 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 hast half of Article 15 of
the agreement of April, lyoo; thus preventing us from refilling our ranks depleted by loss
if 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 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 we cannot succeed.
Over against the plain facts of
day of July, 1901.
