Wallace's Death.
BLAMES THE ORDER AND PARTY
No Room for Him in the Conservative Party—Knifed by Orang«J
Leaders.
a
Toronto, Oct. 10.—Referring editorially to the death of Hon. Clarke
Wallace, the World, Independent
Conservative, significantly remarks
that the late comptroller of customs, according to doctors, died of
pernicios anemia, but he also died
of a broken .heart, and what broke
his heart were two things.
First, the discovery that there
was no room in the Conservative
party for a member of parliament
in Canada who was of strong
Protestant and British principles
and disposed to assert the same;
and, second, lhat there were leaders
in the Orange order who *ere
ready to sacrifice their principles
for the sake of the Conservative
party and were ready to knife him
because of the principles he asserted.

months of the present fiscal year
there is an increase of $488,914 in
the customs revenue.
SHEPARD
ACCEPTS
Will Hake the Race for
. Mayor of New York
City.
New York, Oct. 10.—Howard M.
Shepard, of Brooklyn, the Democratic nominee for mayor of Greater
New York, in accepting the nomination, said among other things:
"I promise you and the Democratic party of this city and its entire people, if my nomination be
ratified at the polls, that from the
1st of January, 1902, until the end
of 1903, the police commission of
the city of New York will, if I shall
live so long, barring interference
from Albany, practically enforce
the standard which the mayor
himself, upon his whole conscience
and in view of his own undoubted
power and responsibility, sets up
for police administration."
For himself, Mr. Shepard said
he believed that a competition for
the mayoralty between Seth Low
and himself will not, on the whole,
be calamitous to any real interest
of the American metropolis or its
people. Nevertheless he thought
it clear that the best interest of the
city and good government required
Mr. Low's defeat. In conclusion
he said:
"I am a Democrat through and
through, and therefore I believe in
personal liberty, not license for
crime or vice."

FISHERMEN NOT GUILTY
Jurors Refused to Follow Judge's
Instructions.
VERDICT CREATES A SENSATION
Mr. Justice Drake Charged Very Strong Against the
Accused But the Jury Found in Their Favor
-Other Trials.
Vancouver, Oct, 10.—The first
of the cases against the Fraser
river fishermen, who last season
took part in the strike, was con
eluded at the assizes late last
night. Six fisherman were charged
with carrying firearms with intent
to disturb the peace, and the jury
after being out an hour and a half
brought in a verdict of "not
guilty."
The verdict created  a sensation
in court. This was the first of
thirty indictments, and the crown
made every effort to prove the oases
as strongly as possible.
Mr. Justice Drake charged very
strongly against the prisoners,
going to the extent of ridiculing
their defence.
There is a probability that if
tbe juries here will not convict, the
oases will be taken up the country for trial.

Dayton, O., Oot. 10.~Mr_. J. A.
Whitmer, a widow residing in this

Mrs. Whitmer, the police say, is
suspected of fourteen murders, the
list including four husbands, five
children, one sister and four members of different families in which
she waB employed as housekeeper.
The last supposed victim was her
sister, Mrs.- Anna Pugh, who died
a week ago under mysterious circumstances. An autopsy performed at the request of Mrs. Whitmer's
mother, ivho. came from Detroit,
is said to have disclosed the presence of arsenic and copperas
poisoning in the stomach.

Thirty six officers and men of
the Rossland company of Rocky
Mountain Rangers were inspected
at the rink last night by Lieut-
Col. Holmes, D. 0. C. Victoria.
The new bugle band was in evidence and played the company
down to tbe armory after the inspection was over.
The district officer commanding
in addressing the men on parade
said they had acquitted themselves
very creditably indeed and added
that he was well aware of the many
difficulties under which they worked. He cautioned the men- to
maintain a strictly neutral position between any two elements in
camp having a dispute. He added that in good time he hoped to
see another company formed in
Rossland.
.Syracuse, Oct. 10.—Harry Brain-
ard, of Albany, a passenger trainman on the Empire state train of
the New York Central, shot three
28-calibre bullets into John Myres
of Kingston, New York, formerly a
railroad man, at the Central
station in this city at 9:20 o'clock
this evening.
Myers had Brainard's overcoat
on his arm, which about an hour
before had been stolen from the
locker of one of the coaches of
train No. 8 on which Brainard was
employed. Brainard was placed
under arrest. Myers was taken to
the hospital.

Story of the Fleming Brother!
Said to Be Authentic.
Tuscon Arizona, Oct. 10.—Charlea
R. and Porter W. Fleming pf thia
place have arrived here from the
Galuso mountains, where they
report a remarkable discovery of
gold.
The rich find is located 71 miles
north of Tuscon and the vein 11
ore, ace rding to the Flemings,
is 200 feet wide and 6000 feet in
length. A canyon cuts through
the vein, exposing the ore on either
side the full length of the cut.
The Flemings assert that from
the bottom of the canyon to the
surface the outcroppings of ore
will run from $5000 to $10,000 to
the ton. They estimate the
amount of gold ih sight at the
enormous sum of $7,000,000.
The Tuscan Star at thia plaee
is authority for the statement that
the story by the Flemiug brothers
is authentic and that it is verified
by the facts as above given.

A DEAL IN INSURANCE.
Consolidation and amalgamation
is the order of the day amongst
capitalists. The fire insurance
companies are among the latest
corporations to come together. The
Phoenix Assurance company of
London, England, founded over
100 yearB ago and one of the oldest
insurance companies in the world
has amalgamated with the Atlas
Fire Insurance company, also of
London, and an old and well-
known corporation. In Canada
the business of the Quebec Insurance company has been taken over
by the London and Lancaster Fire
Insurance company. The policies
of the Quebec will be guaranteed
by tbe London and Lancaster,
and the Quebec is to be maintained
for the present at all events as an
independent company.
The Quebec company was organized in 1818 and for years was the
leading company in the Dominion.
Its board of directors has included
many prominent men and its
stability has always been unquestioned. The present board
will be qhanged, however, as the
result of the amalgamation, but
the head offices of the company
will remain at Quebec, and the
directorate will be composed largely of Quebec men.
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
Very instructive and very encouraging is the annual report of
the New South Wales railways for
the year ending June 30th last.
After paying working expenses
and interest (the latter calculated
at 3.66 per cent., the average rate
paid on the state debt), the commissioners had the pleasure of presenting the treasurer with a surplus of £105,638. The New South
Wales railways are now an object
lesson. They show that good management can make a state system
pay. Another phase of the New
Sonth Wales success is the fact
that it has been accomplished upon a basis of low charges to users
and good wages to the staff.
Miss Marie Joussaye of Kamloops. whoso poetic greeting to the
Duke and Duchess of York we
print today, sent King Edward a
congratulatory poem on hiB coming to the Ihrone and His Majesty's secretary, in acknowledging
the poem, stated in a letter to Miss
Joubsaye that the King's son
would bo in British Columbia this
year and that the authoress waB to
present herBelf to him. When thu
Duke was in Vancouver Miss Joussaye, through the medium of the
letter in question, obtained a private audience with the royal pair
and presented the poetic address
ne publish today.
Should Sir Wilfrid Laurier decide to invite Mr. Ralph Smith to
join his cabinet, thc choice would
be a wise one, and would meet
with the heartiest approval in British Columbia.—Inland Sentinel.
In a letter received by Hugh
Guthrie, M. P., of Guelph, Hon. R.
W. Scott explains that the date
for Thanksgiving day was fixed so
late because those ongagod in shipping objected to a holiday until
after the canals had closed. The
secretary of state intimated that
"the 9th day of November will
now be a holiday, and, therefore,
jt was   considered   reasonable  to
postpone Thanksgiving day until
after the closing of the canals."
To say that energetic criticism
of the trusts breeds murderous
anarchy is an argument which the
New York Sun puts forward more
as a means of serving the objects of
capital than of suppressing a sentiment that menaces law and order.

THE:
Real Situation.
Rossland, B. C, Sept. 5th, 1901.
To the Citizens and Business Men of Rossland and Vicinity and to the General Public;
The Le Roi mine manager has been circulating a report that the strike here is practically at an end and the mines are 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. YVe 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. Barnard 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 five 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 secure the 500 men necessary to start the smelter
it will take twice that many, or seventeen and one-half months, 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 the smelter at Northport. He has cast hjs drag net qver 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.
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 35. He claims to have
shipped one carload on August if. That it was the 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 of the river.
He also claims to be able to start the mines in Rossland. Apparently he does not
realize there is 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 the mines, at the ratio of two every
eight weeks?   And as yet there is not a miner in the lot.
We are not deceiving the miners of Rossland by false promises. We hope for an
honorable settlement of the difficulties here. The sooner the better it will, suit the union
miners of Rossland. But 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.

LABOR'S GREETING:
To His Royal Highness the Duke of Cornwall and York.
Canada, 1901.
GREETING!—
Great is the ruler of bondBmen, great is the lord of the thrall,
But first in a nation of free men our King is greater than all,
This is the word of our greeting to the Heir of the British Throne,
A greeting from loyal hearts and true, in the land of the northern zone,
When the Queen of tlie"north Btands ready to welcome her future King;
Make room in the ranks for labor, let toil her tribute bring.
We know that only the statesman, the soldier, the scribe, the priest,
The high and rich and mighty may sit at the royal feast,
But we claim this right for labor, the right'to graBp your hand,
To look in your eyes and Bpeak to you as man should speak to man;
The right to tell of the struggle in the land of the northern zone,
Where honest labor is ground in the dust and greed usurps the throne
On the Island of Magna Charta near ancient Runnymede,
A charter was signed by a British King that made us free indeed.
Crumbled to dust is the royal hand tbat signed the great decree,
Yet our Kings maintain unions this day tbat Britons shall be free,
And we say to those who would make us slaves by  the might of their
gleaming gold,
That the freedom given by God and King shall never be bought or sold.
Long have we bowed beneath the terrible yoke of greed, oppression and
wrong,
And the cry of our souls went up to God, "How long? 0 Lordl how
long?"
And sometimes we wondered if God was dead, or if He had refused to hear
The prayer of the people, but God has heard, and the hour is drawing
near
When greed and labor shall strive no more, and greed shall be overthrown,
And the scales of justice shall balance at last and labor shall have her
own.
It is barely a score of years ago in the history of our land,
Since ocean was wed to ocean by the railroad's iron band,
And cities sprang up like magio in the wake of the rushing train,
Antl the master reaped the yellow gold as the husbandman the grain,
Until, sated at last, he stepped aside to bask in the Royal grace
Bearing his harvest of golden grain, and—another filled his place.
Think not that we breath roproach,  or  blame to that noble Mother-
Queen;
Ever within our loyal hearts we will keep her memory green.
God's eye alone is swift to Bee the blood on Mammon's hand,
And our Queen was only human, she did not understand.
She never knew of. those free-born men Blaving their lives away,
Striving to live as best they could on ninety cents a day.
The years went by and the deed of shame was enacted once again,
Years of hopeless and grinding toil to thousands of working men;
Thousands of paupers throughout the land, but the world had no need
to care
So long as Mammon could point with pride to one moro millionaire,
Until, at last, it came his turn to bask in the Royal grace.
And ho stepped aside with his money-bags.and—another filled his place
Once more the shameful story as told in former years;
But the toilers had grown wiary of hunger, sweat and tears,
So Ihey waited on the masters and told them in manly way
They could not live on the paltry sum of ninety cents a day;
And tho masters ceaBed a moment from counting their golden store,
Pondered awhile, and then agreed to give them ten cents more.
"Little is better than nothing" 'tis a bitter truth wo have learned.
For a time they bent to the yoke   again, but   the hearts within tbem
burned
As they thought of their little children sent hungry and cold to bed,
Strong men toiling from morn till night and their loved ones lacking
bread,
And they asked once more for a living  wage,   and another boon they
craved,
To be treated as British subjects and not as men enslaved.
It was little enough tbey asked for, but is roused the master's wrath,
And they sought lo sweep the unions forever from their path:
The laws of King and people they calray set aside,
And flooded alien labor through the country like a tide.
They filled the land with refuse, the scum of all the earth,
And paid them more than they refuBed to men of British birth.
We swear, we kept our country's laws through all that bitter strife,
When labor grappled with her foe and struggled for her life;
But labor's strong arm conquered and they tell us it is the best,
Since we have won the battle to let the matter rest.
Yet one truth stands out plain and clear when all is done and said—
The masters fought for millions, and the strikers fought for bread.
They hold the country by the throat, men tremble at their nod;
The King's laws have been set aside even as the laws of God;
They have trampled on your father's laws, broken them one by one,
And now they stand with outstretched handB to greet your father's son.
Their chief will entertain you aB you travel through the land,
And there are none to warn you of the stain upon his hand.
Prince!   We have told our story, do you wonder that we frown
To see the King do honor to the hand that holds us down?
You will eat the bread and drink the wine bought with his ill got gold,
And your fath r's Bword will dub him knight, the same old tale retold;
We road the future by the past, he will bask in the royal grace,
Living at ease, while we starve and slave for the other in his place.
Haye we no heroes, no statesmen, no genius in the land
That only the sons of mammon shall sit at tho King's right hand?
Since we have sworn to give our lives to save the King and crown,
Why should the King heap favors in the hands that crush us down?
Yet the favor of Kings thall not avail against labor's righteous ban.
Whom the King delights to honor" we will honor—if we can.
Not that we grudge him his title, for Buch things we do not care,
Labor's true knights can afford to smile at the toy of a millionaire.
Some souls are noble, some are mean, as nature hath decreed,
If King and sword can amend her work we wish the task God speed;-
Yet an empty title beBtowed by man must be a .riffling thing,
In the eyes of a free born nation where every man is a king.
Prince!   We are only the working class.our ways and speech are plain,
But the toil marked hand we offer you is free from crimson stein.
On the honest hand of labor no royal eye need frown,
It has built up thrones and empires, and sometimes pulled them down.
And labor's love and loyalty is offered with her hand;
You'll find no truer hearts than ours in all this goodly land.    •
And as for you, dear lady, our future King's fair wife!
May heaven's choicest blessings go with you all through life.
And when you reach old England's shore, a boon we ask of thee,
Will you tell the King your father, that his people o'er the sea,
Are proud to own as sovereign an honest, upright man,
And will serve the good King Edward with willing heart and hand.
Prince! will you swear an oath with us, pledging both heart and hand,
Standing erect with level glance as man should speak to man?
As you to your people are true and just, as you to your oath are true.
True to our heritage and your trust, so we will be true to you;
But another oath we have sworn to keep in the land   of the Northern
zone,
Mammon shall rule no more in the land, and lahpr shall have her own.
Written on behalf of the wage-earners, by
Marie Jouhhavk.
