THE MACHINISTS
Important Meeting Held in
New York Yesterday.
VOTED $100,000 TO STRIKERS
Central    Federated    Union    Acts
Promptly for the Strikers-What
the Delegate Stated,
New York, June 10.—At the
meeting of tlie Central Federated
union, A. Kunzelmnd, of the Machinists' committee, said:
"There arc 50,000 machinists on
strike for a shorter working day
throughout the United States."
"Of these 30,000 belong to the
union and we have to keep the other
20,000 in line. Should we win, as
I hope and believe we will, itmeans
a nine hour work day for 650,000
people throughout the United
States. As it will bring the shorter work day to all affiliated trades.'.
lie gaid that the light would he
a long and continued ono and he
asked tne central body lo lend its
aid financially and otherwise. It
would require $150,000 a week, ho
said fur the non-union men.
The meeting voted to give $100,-
000 directly to the machinists and
adopted a resolution directing the
secretary to write to all the affiliated unions asking for financial assistance for the strikers. -
Returned to Work.
Buffalo. June 10.—Thc 500 machinists, pipe litters and helpers,
who struck at the depot simps of
(he New York Central a few days
ago, returned today, in accordance
with the orders received last week
from the convention of thc International Association of Machinists
nt. Toronto, which decided after investigation that the strike had
been too hasty."
Hurled Defiance.
Toronto, Juno 10.—At Saturday's session of tho International
Machinist!-! Association a resolution
was passed accepting the declaration that was issued by tho National
Metal Trades Association and hurling back the defiance. "We never
will accept any modifications of our
demands or resume labor until the
cause for which wo struggle is
triumphant and a shorter work day
is an accomplished fact."

MINER SAID
TO BE SOLD
Transfer  Closed  in  Spokane Last Week—The
New Owners.
There has been a well defined
rumor current on the street for the
past few days that F. Aug Heinze
uf liutte has sold the Hossland
Miner to the Le Roi company or
to the Mine Managers Association nf British Columbia which
is now underst 1  to control  tho
Nelson Miner.
Thc story goes that Secretary
Tnlmie's recent visit here and Bernard Macdonald's trip tu Spokane
lastweek to meet I lei nze's representative in lhat city were connected with thc deal whieh it is asserted is now closed. Tne circulation
books of the paper together with
other data were expressed to Spokane early in the week and the
details were gone into at the conference there.
The sum   mentioned   as paid is
said to figure around $20,000.
If tho report is true it will be interesting to watch tho highly "independent" stand taken in the editorial columns of what might and
should he the leading mining paper
of the Kootenays.
It is that asserted the editor is
not officially aware of the change
of ownership but will be shortly informed of it.
Remembering what happened
thejevenfng paper in Rosslltnd last
December it is to be hoped that the
Le Roi management have reserved
sufficient room in their storehouse
so that when the time comes the
poor old Miner can be placed side
by side with the plant of the defunct Record whore it lies today.
IS IT DONE
ON PURPOSE
The Miners' Ore Shipments
1500 Tons Short Yesterday.
The Miner stated yesterday that
the ore shipments last week amounted last week to 5425 tons and
no ore shipments from the Le
R6i went out for the first three
days of the week.
On Monday the Le Roi shipped
20 car loads and on Wednesday a
similar shipment went out from
the Le Roi. This represents about
1(100 tons, just about thc amount
which the Miner was short in its
weekly estimate, over 7000 tons
having been shipped during the
week.
A NEW UNION.
The Rossland  Labor   Union   Formed
on Saturday—Meeting on 15th.
A special meeting called by the
Rossland Trades and Labor Council was held at Miners' Union hall
on Saturday evening. About fifty
persons were present.
After a good deal of discussion it
was decided to organize a union to
be called "The Rossland Labor
Union." A president and secretary, pro tern, were elected and a
committee was appointed to draft
working rules for the new organization.
The speeial committee will report next Saturday nightat a meeting to be held on that date when
all laboring men are requested to
be in attendance.
The Dominion Trades nnd Labor
Council will be asked to grant a
oharter to tin- new union,

TO END THE WAR
Hague Arbitration  Court
Will Now Intervene.
WILL ENGLAND GIVE CONSENT?
Sensational Dispatch from Berlin-
German   Emperor Will Act-
Boers Now Want Peace-
Berlin, June 10.—The Kleins
Journal today prints a dispatch
from The Hague saying that Queen
Wilhelmina's recent visit here was
meant to obtain Emperor William's
consent to end the South African
war, both the Zwcilbund and Drei-
bund being willing to doso,through
The Hague arbitration court, and
that the emperor consented and
the court began work thereon. Tha
dispatch has created a sensation
here.
The Associated Press has just obtained thc following foreign office
statement which is authorized by
Count von B'uelow, thc imperial
chancellor:
Neither Great Britain, France
nor Russia ever approached Germany to participate in any action
aiming at ending the South African
war. Germany has all along distinguished between offering her
services nnd intervention. To render her good office would be possible under certain circumstances,
viz: If both parties to the war requested it; but itwill be remembered that Great Britain joined the
Hague conference only on condition that the Boer states were excluded.
"There is no doubt that Mr.
Kruger, who is a serious statesman, came to Europe to obtain the
good ollices of several of tho powers
to end the war; but there is also no
doubt that Great Britain does not
want their good offices. At least
it is true that since the Soutli African war began Great Britain has
never, cither vorbalh or in writing, confidentially or officially
broached such an idea. It is quite
possible that the Boer side has now
asked formally The Hague arbitration court to lend its aid to end the
war somehow, and that the court
has bnd a session regarding thc
matter, hut that, of course, is entirely different from any serious
step to end the war."

SOME MORE "REFLECTIONS.'
In a lengthy two column editorial yesterday, the Miner purports
to give a review of President Shed's
history of the Northport troubles
which appeared in these columns
last week.
The Wohi.d does not know who
wrote the article but acquits the
editor of being the author. The
Miner apparently cannot understand that it was possible for Mr.
Shed to write a perfectly plain unvarnished and truthful review of
all the facts of this unpleasant
case, and accordingly, by ignoring
the issue raised and giving prominence to portions of the statement
by the lavish use of capitals, seeks
to gloss the matter over.
The issue is plain. What the
men complain of and what they
seek to arbitrate, is the unjust discrimination of the management
against union men as union men.
Presumably acting for the management Mr. Kadish made no secret of the matter. He told the
men that if they would abandon
the union he would take them
back to work at once, but otherwise
no union men would bo employed,
and that is now the issue which
will be fought out to a finish here,
and at Northport.
The morning paper, which is
now avowedly a mine managers'
paper pure and simple, asks:
"What do the union men themselves think about it? What do
the business men of Rossland think
about it?"
We are inclined to think that
the answer to these two questions
will gradually be instilled into the
management of the Miner from this
time on, now that the paper has
come out in its true colors. To prove
that the men are clearly within
their rights in asking for arbitration in the matter, we refer to the
Albany case, which was settled on
Saturday on tho lines asked for by
the Northport union. Five men
employed by the United Traction
company, who took a leading part
in the late tie up, were discharged
because ofj their t connection with
the Amalgamated Association of
Street Car Employes. The president of the association demanded
that the case of these men Bitould
be arbitrated. Now see what followed. We quote the Associated
Press dispatch from Albany in full
as it appeared on Saturday:
r "At a conference held in this
city today between the board of directors of the United Traction company and the committee representing the employes of the Albany
and Troy lines, the differences
which have sprung up between the
company and its employe, during
the past two weeks were amicably
settled and all chances of a strike
happily avoided. The suspended
conductors were reinstated with
pay and the other mattcrB in dispute settled to the satisfaction of
the company and its employes."
We invite the Miner to "reflect"
some more and to include the Albany case as it applies to North-
port.
EDITORIAL NOTES.
• According to newspaper reports,
Bernard Macdonald is going to
force a fight on the Western Federation. A large force of men has
been laid off at the Northport smelter and at the Le Roi mine with
the evident calculation of breaking
up the labor organizations. Macdonald is spoiling for a fight and
he will certainly got  it.     All the
money that the Whitaker Wright
corporation and the Gooderham-
Blackstock syndicate can dig up
will not be a circumstance to what
it will cost to drive the miners'
union out of Rossland.—Paystreak.
While the cost of smelting has
been reduced,transportation charges
aro less, modern machinery is now
in use, and the ore shipments are
much larger than heretofore, the
Le Roi and War Eagle mines at
Rossland arc not paying dividends.
Under the old (American) management, before the capitalization
of the Lo Roi was raised to the tune
of five million, this property paid
$1,305,000 in dividends, and the
conditions if anything were less favorable than at present. The War
Eagle, too, is clouded in mystery.
Between stock manipulation and
extravagant management, and the
scarecrow cry of "labor troubles"
these properties have been much
reduced in value so far as the stock
exchange goes.—Lardeau Eagle.
SCOTTISH CENSUS.
For the first time the population
of Scotland is greater than that 6j
Ireland, the excess being 15,411.
Tho following are the returns for
towns having more than 50,000
inhabitants:
Glasgow 760,423
Edinburgh 316,479
Dundee 160,871
Aberdeen 153,108
Paisley  79,335
Leith  76,667
Govan   76,351
Greenock   67,645
Patrick  54,274
The total population is 4,741,957,
an increase in 10 years of 446,310.
In 19 of the counties the population has increased and in 14 it has
decreased sinco 1891. The greatest
growth has taken place in Lanarkshire, (which includes Glasgow)
the excess over the last census
amounting to 231,949, or more than
one half tho increase of the whole
country. The largest reduction
was in Roxburghshire, 4707.
THE ORE SHIPMENTS.
The Miner's ore shipments as
given yesterday were about 1500
tons short of the true amount, and
these figures were sent out to the
Associated Press. The morning
paper also stated that not a pound
of ore came down from the Le Roi
on the first three days of the week,
whereas 40 cars, or nearly 1500
tons, were sent down on Monday
and Wednesday. The blunder
was a stupid one and unless the
shipments are more correctly stated
in future no credence will be given
them. Previous shipments in May
were given away over the actual
figures and no corrections were
made in the total for the year.

As shareholders are aware, the pres
ent bank charters woulj have expired
on the first of July next. Instead ol introducing an entire new bank act, the
Government proceeded to continue the
chaiters of the banks, and bis provided
for the changes which in its opinion
were advisable by amendments to the
bank act of 1800. The accommodation
in tbe bauk's building at headquarters
having become very inadequate for tke
proper conduct of ths business, it has
been found necessary to erect suitable
premises on the site recently acquired on
Craig street, and the work is now in
progress. The new premises are to bo
connected with the present building by
a bridge over Fortification lane. Premises are also be being erected at the corner of Wellington and Magdalene
streets for the Point St. Charles sub-
agency, and since tbe last annual meeting tbe bank's building at Sydney, N. 8.,
has been completed and occupied by
that branch. It has been decided lo
open a branch of tbe bank at G ace Bay,

the branches have passed through the

E. S. CLOUSTON,
General Manager.
Bank of Montreal.
Montreal, 3oth April, 1901.
The General Manager's Address.
Mr. Clouston then said:—The statement before you requires a little explanation, as it is mida up to conform lo the
amended bank act nf last session, and
now embraces our foreign business, as
well as our Canadian. I'revioui statements showed only tin balances which
would be due us from other countries
after our business there had been liquidated. Ca>nsequ**ntly, our statement now
includes all deposit? and loans elsewhere
tbanin J.niad.1. This makes a comparison with former statcmeuls an impossibility, but for the information < f the
shareholder., I may say that the principal changes in our Canadian business
are as follows:—
Circulation increases, $321,000.
Deposits not bearing interest, increase,
$[,903,000.
Deposits bearing interest, increase,
$5,422,000.
Current loans and discounts, decrease,
$360,000.
You will notice that our profits are a
little in excess of those of last year, and
the statement is one of tbe strongest we
have had Ihe pleasure of laying before
you.
The New Bankinsr Rules
As Ihe charters of alt the banks would
have expired in July of this year a further extension of ten ye.ira was .ranted
and certain amendments to the bank
act were enacted. The chief changes
were:—The rate of interest on notes
of suspended banks was reduced
from six per cent to five per cent. Power was been given to enable a bank to
purchase tbe assets of another, thus
overcoming tbe barrier which formerly
existed to the amalgamation of banks.
In addition lo the annual return of unclaimed dividends and balances, we are
also required to furnish a statement of
all dralts, and bills of exchange issued
and remaining unpaid.
In the case of a suspended bank, Ihe
Canadian Bankers Association has been
given power to appoint a curator. The
association has also bean entrusted with
the work of inspecting and supervising
the note circulating accounts of all the
banks in the Dominion, an added safeguard, if any were needed, (0 the circulating currency of lhe country. In this
way the association has practically become an agent of the Government in thc
administration of the act. The form of
our statement to thc Government has
been changed and fuller details are now
required. It was this lhat rendered advisable the now form of statement now
laid before you. Other changes were .of
more interest to bankeis themselves
than to the public. Gencielly speaking
the alterations were in the direction of
strengthening and improving the a-A under which we have work.d for the last
ten years.
At the last session of Parliament the
finance minister took power to establish
a mint. The opinion of the bankers, not
from any selfish point of view, but from
what we believed to be in the best interests of tbe country at large, were set
forth at the last annual meeting of (lie
Bunkers' Association, and 1 do not propose to say anything more on the subject
here. The act was only permissive, and
it may be tbat on looking more closely
into tbe matter the government may decide nol to incur considerable expense
in order to deteriorate the value of one
of our products, as the gold is more
available to pay our foreign indebtedness
and more valuable for export, as bullion,
than if it were minted into coin. As a
circulating medium it will not displace
the paper currency here any more tinn
it does in the United States, while the
miners today can obtain from the banks
the same Value for their goltl as they
would if tbe mint were established even
in British Columbia.
Business Generally Good.
Business during tbe last year has been
generally good, notwithstanding a short
crop in the northwest, aud in spite of the
unfortunate condition of affairs in the
mining districts. In other sections of
Canada even the most pessimistic of
farmers should have been satisfied with
the|results of the last two ycars.__.lf,
from a sentimental point of view, we
were eager and willing to aid the mother
country by the dispatch of troops, as
will always be the case, the practical result is a magnificent advertisement to
Canada and an additional ma: 1 ct established for our products which will probably recoup the outlay of  this country.
In the last year there has been an increased demand for its products in con
sequeiujeoitlieBoer war in South Africa.
Oa the other hand, the woollen manufacturing industry has not been prosperous, and, I am sorrv to say, the outlook
for the lumber trade is not of the best,
prices ruling low and the markets being
congested, and we can only hope for an
improvement before the season finishes.
Need for Caution.
There are also signs of overproduction
in textile goods and in the manufacture
of pulp, which only need judicious restraint to be put on a good basis. We
must not forget the return of the wave
and get so far beyond our depth aB lo
lose our footing. It is too early lo speak
of the future crops, though up lo the
present, the reports'me good, and if they
turn out according to promise we ought
to have another good year, and if that
comes you can see thut this bank is in a
position to take advantage of it.

The services in the Methodist
church were unusually well attended on Sunday, a large congregation
being present to hear the initial
sermon of Rev. A.M. Sanford,B.A.,
the new pastor.
Mr. Sanford devoted the morning
sermon to a discussion of the relation existing between pastor and
people, declaring that he was not
here to have dominion over their
faith but to their helper. In Mb
evening sermon he emphasized the
fact that (lod had a plan for each
man's life and that each man must
serve God in his own sphere.
Tho general impression from
these services was that in calling
Mr. Sanford to Rossland the church
has made no mistake.
The music furnished by the new
choir was of a high order and much
appreciated.

HE NEVER
FORGOT IT
Stratton's Generous Act—
Redeemed the Matchless Mine.
Leadville, Colo., June 20.—Win-
field S. Stratton, the millionaire
mine owner of Cripple Creek, has
redeemed ihe "Matchless" mine in
Leadville for the widow of the late
Senator Tabor.
Years ago Senator Tabor advanced some money to Stratton when
Stratton was a poor struggling
miner and he never forgot it, when
Tabor died he had lost almost
everything and he was vainly endeavoring to save the Matchless
mine which he always insisted,
still contained millions in its unexplored depths. The property
was sold several months ago at a
sheriff's sale and the final title
would pass on July 4th, to the new
owners. Senator Tabor's widow has
continued the struggle and Mr.
Stratton has now come to her assistance and will also enable her to
exploit the property to greater
depths.
