GREAT FUTURE FOR PROPERTY
New Plant Will Pay Tor Itself Within a Year-Circular Issued to
Shareholders.
The Ymir shareholder are in receipt of a circular from their directors informing them that they
have decided to proceed at once
with the erection of a large cyanide
plant for the treatment of the
Ymir tailings. The cost of this
plant, which is now going up on
the company's property, is estimated at$50,000, and its operation is
estimated to effect an annual saving upon the company's operations
of $85,000, nr a sum equal to S.I
per cent on the company's capital. The circular further sets 'out
that it lias always heen the policy
of the directors to pay for all improvements out of the profits of the
mine. The shareholders will
aliuilifless lie glad Ui learn that the
cyaniding mill will be installed
without any increase in capital or
without entrenching upon the funds
required for the payment of the
quarterly dividends. The circular
further adds that the news from
the mine continues to be nf
the must satisfactory character
and the high returns aro being
maintained, tin the exchange the
stoa'k has made big gains since the
new ore body was discovered and
the indications are that it will go
even higher.

PUBLIC OPINION'.
All the indications ii|> to the
present time point Bquarely to the
fact that Bernard Macdonald and
his allies, who originated the existing war against all organized labor
in the west, must walk the dreary
path on which they have deliberately started, alone and unaided.
Public sympathy hits heen so plainly alienated by the notorious ads
of the London stock jobbers thai
any further move on their part to
still further depreciate the stock of
the Le Roi group will meet with
anything hut approval from the
long suffering public. In Canada
—even in Eastern Canada—we
have all been pretty generally educated on the ways of the stock
manipulators, and if the public
can only gel a fair chance to express its honest opinion in some
definite way it can he counted upon to warmly support the jtisl
claims of the men.
Mr. Macdonald has done his bnsl
locally to influence public opinion
here and we all know the result up
to the present moment. It will
take some little time to cducali
public opinion outside of the camp
as to the real facts of the situation
but the anti-union case has been so
grievously overdone that the inevitable* reaction has already sei in.
It is fairly well-known now lhal
Manager Macdonald's appeal lc
the other mine managers of thc
Kootenays has been turned down
and that the just wage paid to
shovelers and carmen in even-
other mining property, in British
Columbia, except the Lc Roi group
and the War Eagle-Centre Star
mines will remain at the union
minimum.
Mr. Kirby has now an opportunity of greatly assisting fl revival
of public opinion in this country
in favor of the Gooderham mines.
From the Pacific to (lie Atlantic n
howl of rage has been going up I'm
months over lhe manipulation of
these properties and if the manager
will make a square settlement and
promptly get all his men In v ork
he will at least have gone a greal
way to induce the public to believe in the bona-fidesof (lie management.
If Mr. Macdonald would kindly
re-transfer the Rossland Miner
back to Mr. Heinze and otherwise
retrace his steps it would not*be
impossible under existing circumstances to look for an immediate
resumption of work in all the
Rossland mines.
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
A correspondenl . riling in the
London Financial News of July
9th, referring to the management
generally of Hie I.e Roi group, soys 1
"F6_ reasons best known lo tic
general manager, radical changes
have been made at the Northport
works, both in th&offioeand around
the smelter; and whether such
changes have been judicious has
uot yet been demonstrated by lhe
new superintendent."— * * •
"The entire management financial
and otherwise should not lie under
the control of one man, no matter
how oapable lie may lie '• ■'•• *
A resident director—notnecessarily
a mining man—would certainly be
a great help to the general manager, and would be a guarantee oi
good faith to the head ollice. * '
The head officers of the company
should be posted daily as lo thc
actual output and ils nel value,
and at the end of each luonlli full
details given regarding development Work and aotuul profits.   *
*   *   The four companies should
work in harmony with each other;
but one should not be used to bolster
up the other at any stage of the
game. These four groups are all
right and can pay handsome dividends."
Speaking in London at the Dominion day dinner Hon. Mr.
Chamberlain referring to Canada
and (he future said: "We look to
you, the young nations, the heirs
nf the future lo appreciate our position, to approve our policy, to give
us your help, lo enable us lo meel
the (aunts of our enemies wilh (he
cheers of our children." A speech
like thil" gives some idea of (be
great change which has taken
place in lie- old country about the
■'colonics" in general, and Canada
in particular.

A < -.....c Story.
As an old friend of the late General Digby Willoughby (writes Mr.
Charles Collette), 1 read the notice
of his career in last week's M. A. P.
with great interest. The following
incident in his strange, erratic life
is thoroughly typical of the man.
Willoughliy's Horse, which he raised and commanded in Aliwai
Norlh, was about as awkward a
team lo drive as any man ever sat
behind, One morning at stable
poor Digby had occasion to find
fault wilh one of his  troopers—an
ex-"pug," by   lhe   way.    The i i
used insubordinate language and
threatened violence. Digby threw
off his coal, slipped into (he fellow, j
ami gave him a' sound thrashing.
Two of the "lough's" pais came to
his assistance; Digby set aboul
them, (oo, and laid them on the
carpel, lie (hen calmly washed
his ha mis in a stable bucket, resinned bis coal, sen! an orderly for
an escort from (heguard,and made
thc three mutineers prisoners. lie
had them brought up in front of
him (he next morning and gave
(hem seven days' punishment drill
ior lighting in camp limits !

Dismissal of 37 "Special"
Xonstables-Violation of
Law by Railway.
The Inland Sentinel some few
days ago pointedly directed attention to the violation of the alien
labor law, and the muster and
servants act by the Canadian Paciric Railway company, and in this
connection, intimated pretty
plainly that thc special railway
constables were in many instances
exceeding their powers, in fact,
were acting unlawfully in lhat
they were compelling imported
foreigners, ignorant uf our language and our laws, to do lhat
which they neither wanted, nor
were in anyway bound to do.
The prominence given to these
facts has served a good purpose.
The local committee of the strikers
wont to Kamloops, took lhe matter
up and instructed Mr. Siuarl Henderson, tlie Ashcroft barrister, lo
lake sleps to have these special
railway  eoiislnbles dismissed,
Hy section 2S| i,f the railway
act, any railway oompfiny can secure lhe appointment uf Bpcclal
raijway constables upon application lo two  justices  of  the   pence.
By section 28-1 of lhe same nol
any two justices of Iho peace may
dismiss them and no person Ho
dismissed shall he again appointed
or act as constable for such railway, without the consent of the dismissing justices.
The application for thcilismissnl
of these special constables, employed between Ashcroft and Lytton,
37 in all, was made at Ashcroft on
Friday last, by Mr. Stuart Henderson before Messrs. Thos. Steward and Francis Webb, justices of
the peace. Tho application was
made on the grounds set forth
above, and was granted by the justices upon the authority contained
in the section, 28-1, quoted, and
General Superintendent Marpole
was served wilh a notice of the dismissal.

E\ i'.mm; World,
Sir.—
-1 fully endorse youi'i
■allant
struggl
■ iii enlighten  and i
locate
the working masses, and more especially business nicn as to the real
•causes of the present trouble. The
red rag was so plainly shoved in
front of the men that there was
nothing left for them but to come
out, as they did.
The real agitators here and their
allies in London, use this strike us
a lever to down (be innocent slum
holders—just as the former management of the B. A. C. company
would like to control the Le Rois,
being in the "know" as to their great
richness and possibilities.
As to the 50 cents asked for by
tbe men, there is no question or
argument, if the mucker cannot
earn %'C, I, for one, do not want him.
Corruption and slock jobbing has
got such a hold in London and
elsewhere that all British Columbia
has got a black eye but, sir, go on
with your good work and send the
truth iiack to England and Scotland. I have but recently returned
from there and know they feel
very hitter indeed at getting done
up by their own people, and we in
Rossland have to Buffer and carry
all the load. .May you be successful in reaching the public, over the
sea, and you will have done your
part as I, in my poor way have
done mine through the press there.

To the Citizens ami Business Men of Rossland and Vicinity and to the General Public .-
The business and social intefests of a community are so closely interwoven in a community like Rossland, that any dispute among thc industrial elements forming the socia 1
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 tlie
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 tlie
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
land are less favorably situated than Rossland.    We. believe that it is to continue to enforce
I this unjust scale of wages that so many annoying practices have been introduced to under-
1 mine 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
lhe agreement of April, upo; thus preventing us from refilling our ranks depleted by loss
ol" members compelled to seek em|>lcymciit in other fields.
Third.—13y 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 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
