C. 0. TALBERT
Was Killed at the Arlington Yesterday Morning.
STRUCK DOWN BY FALLING ROCK
Well and Favorably Known in Toss-
land Camp—Plucky Action of
Bert Porter.
Robert H.I.amill.who for the pa. t
seven months has been employed at
the Arlington mine, near Erie, aB
foreman, who was very well known
in Rossland met wilh a frightful accident in one of the Arlington
stopes yesterday morning which resulted in his death three hours
later. Just how Ihe accident occurred is not known at present, as
tho only man wilh the foreman at
the time of the accident is so badly
injured that he cannot be permitted
to talk.
Tbe fatality occurred at a few
minutes before the men on the day
shift started to enter the mine, and
in a new slope which was just being opened up. The supposition ia
that Hamill was examining tho
work of the men who 'had been
blasting in the stope on the previous night and that the accident
was caused by the falling of some
rook from the roof which had become loosened by blasting.
Bert Porter, who was caught
with Hamill in the falling rock,
also received painful injuries. He
was struck first on the back of the
head, the blow inflicting painful
wounds and knocking him down.
While iu a prostrate position other
pieces of rock fell upon the side of
his hice, breaking his jaw. Porter
showed wonderful nerve. Although badly hurt himself, he refused to allow the rescuers (o do
anything for him, insisting that
the}' should concentrate all their
energies in getting the foreman
out. Hamill was conscious when
the rescuers reached him, but be
was so badly injured about the
legs as well ns internally that he
was powerless to help himself. He
was carried at once to lhe bunk
house, and Porter very pluckily
made the quarter of a milo on foot,
with the assistance of a couple of
miners.
Hamill retained consciousness
up to within a few moments of his
death and the last request that he
made was that his body bo buried
in Vancouver besides that of his
wife.
Hamill was a man of .0 years
and a widower, Hewrsborn near
Owen Sound, Ontario, and in his
younger days was engaged in mining on Silver Islet and other pointH
in Lake Superior mining region.
He came West lo British Columbia
about 1889. He was engaged in
mining iu Cariboo, but lately has
been In West Kootenay. He was
foreman of lhe Yellowstone mini!
for a considerable period.and for Ihe
last seven months held a similar
position at the Arlington.

Mr. Macdonald's admitted policy
of union smashing will be upheld
by thoBe in authority over him.
But if it is the fight will be a prolonged and bitter one indeed.
So far no break has been made
in the union ranks, and the attacks
made have recoiled upon the head
and front of all this trouble. Half
a century ago there might have
been some doubt as to the final result of such a fight, but nowadays
it is a trifle out of date, to expect
lhe destruction of labor unions.
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
THE    SERVICE   TOMORROW.
The public parade and the memorial service in Miners' Union hall
tomorrow afternoon, which it has
been decided to hold out of respect
to tbe martyred executive head of
the Americau nation, are sure to be
largely attended by all classes of
Rossland citizens.
British subjects will not easily
forget the cordial sympathy so
plainly manifested here by our
American cousips in January last,
on the occasion of the Queen's
death, and they will join in the
public parade and the memorial
service tomorrow afternoon with
sincere sympathy.
If the manager of the Le Roi
thought the mines could be worked
here successfully with non-union
labor why did he ring in Mr. Geiser of Oregon?
In giving the list of men at work
in Northport and at the mines
here tho general manager should
discriminate between the "Young
Ontario Harvesters" and miners.

HENRY MORGAN & CO., MONTREAL
#
If skilled miners are so easily
obtainable from the Coer d'Alene
country, and "Young Ontario
Harvesters," can be got for the asking why was it necessary to employ Geiser to get them?
THE STRUGGLE.
Have the unions the right to
exist, or should they be destroyed
and their members be forced to resort to secret meetings?
Bernard Macdonald has long
ago thrown aside his pretended
indifference about labor organizations. When the trouble first' appeared at Northport, the manager
was fond of stating in bis paper
that he had really no objections
to unions, in fact preferred that
his employes should join them.
There was a conspiracy, he said,
to kill the foreman at the North-
port smelter, ancl this outrage must
be sternly frowned down, but he
always added in the early days of
the strike, that he had nothing
against unions whatever.
It was singularly unfortunate
that Bela Kadish Bhould have let
out the true meaning of the contest
then just commencing. It will be
recalled that on the occrsion of the
first meeting between the smelter
superintendent and the union men
at Northport, Mr. Kadish said to
them. "We have decided to break
up your unions at all cost. If you
want to work for its you must
abandon your union."
Some good people in Rossland
refused to believe that a battle
was commencing for tbe existence
or non existence of the union.
They said that the idea was so insane and oul of date that it was
simply impossible.
Perhaps the same good people
think so still, but we doubt it. The
most simple minded citizen must
have discovered by this time what
the LeRoi manager hasall along intended when he inaugurated the
struggle at Northport.
There was no question of wages
or hours of labor at the smeller
and the mythical attack on the
foreman haB been dropped long
ago. The men were under a grave
disadvantage at the outset because
it was difficult to make the real
plans of the manager clear to the
general public.
Mr. Macdonald has since been
successfully "shelled out of the
woods" to use his own expression,
and driven from on after another
of the untenable positions he has
attempted to take.
The real fight to crush out organized labor in the Kootenay
country iB just commencing. What
ever the final outcome may be it
is only fair that the issue should
be squarely put before the public.
From the very commencement the
unions have been well aware that
they were fighting for their exist-
ance and have carefully prepared
for the struggle.
The WORLD does not believe,
and never has beleved that when
the real situation is made clear,
Matters are certainly improving
from the strikers' standpoint if the
Rossland Miner is to be believed
Ten days ago the strike was ended,
all was over, including the shouting, and the camp rejoiced in the
"altered condition of affairs."
This morning we are told that "the
Rossland strike" is merely "tottering on the verge of a downfall."
However, the end of this week is
to witness the complete collapse
and "the agitators robbed of their
following."

Here is a gem worthy of being
rescued from oblivion. It is taken
from the Miner's editorial this
morning: "Anyone who has read
the Miner and other newspapers
must be aware that at the present
time the army of young Ontario
harvesters, who came west to assist the western agriculturalist to
garner in his phenominal crops, is
now idle in the Prairie province,
and that each man is debating with
himself as to whether he will turn
his footsteps east or west." The
young Ontario harvester's work in
the Josie for instance is simply
convincing.

To the Citizens and Business Men of Rossland and Vicinity and to thc General Public .-
The LeRoi mine manager lias been circulating a report that the strike here is practically at an end and the mines arc about to resume. This report has been taken up by their
organ, the Morning Miner, and sent out over the country as a true report of the situation in
Rossland. We have made a careful analysis of the situation here and believe that no impartial reader can see much reason for the joyful enthusiasm which Mr. Bernard Macdonald
and his paper profess to feel.
For three and one-half months the strike has been in force at Northport. The greatest claim Macdonald or Kadish have ever made during that time is that they have been
able to operate two of the live furnaces at the smelter. It is only a question of simple arithmetic to see that it it takes three and one-half months to start two furnaces, it will take
eight and three-fourths months before they can have the smelter in operation. Now, if it
takes eight and three fourths months to e the 500 men necessary to start  the smelter,
it will take twice that many, or seventeen and one-half month., to secure 1000 men for the
mines in Rossland. Or, at the end of twenty-six and one-half months, if Macdonald has the
same success he claims to have had thus far at the smelter, he will be in a position to work
the mines.
No one can deny or dispute that Bernard Macdonald has left no stone unturned to
secure men for thc smelter at Northport. lie has cast his drag net over the states of Minnesota, Colorado, California, Oregon, Missouri, Montana, or, practically, over the entire
country west of the Mississippi river, and has been able to start but two of the five furnaces
at the Northport smelter. This is the success he boasts. He claims the strike is at an end!
It has only begun.
So far we have taken as true his statements that he has two furnaces in operation at
Northport. We wished to prove how futile are his statements by his own evidence.
I The real truth is he has never had two furnaces in successful operation at one time for 24
hours. They have produced no matte for shipment up till August 25, 1 le claims to have
shipped one carload on August 21. That it was thc highest in value of any shipment made.
The records of the railroad at Northport fail to show any trace of matte shipments on
or about August 21, If any shipment was made it was via the Columbia river route and
rests at the bottom oi the river.   .
, He also claims to be able to start the mines in Rossland. Apparently he does not
realize there te an alien act in Canada, for of the 30 employes now at the mines all but two
have been brought here in direct violation of this law and will be deported inside of two
weeks. He has in eight weeks been able to secure but two scabs in Canada. Now, if the
Canadian people should, to his surprise, enforce their laws, even if it does hurt the feelings
!of Bernard Macdonald, how long will it take to start thc mines at the ratio of two every
I eight weeks?   And as yet there is not a miner in the lot.
We are not deceiving thc miners of Rossland by false promises. We have every reason to hope that by October 1, 1901, Bernard. Macdonald's name will only remain in Rossland as an unpleasant memory. We hope for an honorable settlement of the difficulties
here. The sooner the better it will suit the union miners of Rossland. Hut if it is necessary
to continue this fight to its final end the union miners and smeltermen will stand shoulder to
shoulder for carrying on the fight.
This war was forced on these unions. We entered the struggle full of a belief in the
justice of our cause and confident of our ability to carry it successfully to an end. This belief has never been shaken for an instant, and certainly is not when we consider the almost
unbroken line of successes which have thus far attended our efforts.

At the regular meeting of the
Rossland Trades and Labor Council held in the lodge room at the
Miners' Union hall last evening,
the following resolution was unanimously adopted:
"Whereas lhe whole civilized
world has lately been horrified at
the act of an assassin, who has in
tbe most atrocious manner murdered Willliam McKinley, late president of thc United Stales,
"Resolved, we tbe members of
the Trades and Labor Council, of
the City of Rossland, British Columbia, feel it is our duty to express
our sympathy with the people of
the UnitedSta.es in their affliction,
and our abhorrence at the deed,
the effect of which has fallen so
heavily on our sister country,
We believe that anarchists have
no place in the present state of civ
ilization,and we hope the universal
execration which this act has cast
upon tbem will be effective in
counteracting the pernicious doctrines which they profess to believe"
