MEMBER
Thomas Gifford,   M.P.P.,
New Westminster-Aii
Interesting Sketch.
Tho new member for New Westminster, Mr. Thomas Gifford, is a
native of Lockerby in Scotland,
but has been long identified with
the City of New WestminBter. He
is a jeweler by trade and one of
thc mpst respected citizens of the
town. Outside of it his two sons
are probably more famous than he
has been hitherto, as they are well
known players of the champion
lacrosse team of Canada. Mr.
Gifford has the record of never
havfng been defeated in any contest and has done good service as
an alderman and trustee. He has
been repeatedly asked to run as
mayor of the city and is recognised
as an invaluable man of business
on committees and in the council.
As regards the interests of the constituency tbe people of tho city are
all satisfied that a wise choice has
been made. Socially Mr. Gifford
is intensely popular. Of all social
gatherings in connection with tbe
Presbyterian church of which he is
an active member and other or
ganizatious, he is tho very life and
soul. In manner ho is direct and
unassuming. New Westminster
has picked good timber to make u
popular and useful member of the
legislature whose qualities of character will bo widely recognized.—

Financial   Statement   Submitted-
New Mine Manager Appointed-
Confidence in Rossland Mines.
The following statement is taken
from the fourth annual report of
the New Gold Fields of British Columbia, Limited, of which Sir
CharleB Tupper is chairman.
The profit and lossaccountshows
a gross profit of £7604, 8s. dd., ox
pendilure _EG111, 10s. Id., leaving
a net profit for tho year of £1392,
18s. ..d. This balance, together
with the amount brought forward
from last account, viz., £8590, 13s.
8d., gives a total credit balanco of
£10,083, 12s. Id., from which has
been paid dividends as declared,
special remuneration to directors
and income tax amounting to£7K42,
13s. 10d., leaving a net balanco at
dato of £2240, 18s. 3d.
The directors have thought it
prudent to considerably writedown
the value of all its mining securities, and, under tbecircumslances,
do not propose the payment of a
further dividend, beyond tho interim dividend of 5 per cent, already paid, leaving the reserve of
£5000 shown in last year's balance
sheet and tho balanco of this year's
profit, together amounting to £72 40,
18s. 3d., to be carried forward.
Referring to the Velvet and
Portland mines the appointment
of Stanley Sorenson as manager,
is referred to and it is slated that
his policy of mine development is
identical with that recommended
by the previous manager. Tbe report of tbe properties up to date
fully warrant in the opinion of the
directors continued confidence in
the value of these mines.
Besides the Velvet and the Portland the company owns tbe following. Maldon Gold Fields, limited., Norlh Maldon Mine, lid.,
Klondyke Corporation, ltd., and
lhe Melkedaleit Copper Mines,
ltd.
The annual meeting of the parent company at which tho report
above referred towassubmitted was
held in London on September 17th.
EARNING .
THEIR WAGE
Rolling Ore Cars Down the
Le Roi Dump to the
Josie Road.
Ono of the Miner's "miners."
Forty-pound boxes of pears 11.60
pcr box at Paulson Bros. tf.
The "farmers" at the Lc Roi
are having a perfect picnic. The
daily accidents are like wedding
presents "numerous and costly"
and the casualty list is assuming
alarming propositions.
Yesterday afternoon a few minutes before tho whistle sounded at
5.30, one, of tho industrious, able
bodied strike breakers got away
with 11 truck load of waste Le Roi
rock, or to put it more correctly,
tbe truck load of waste got away
with tho worker and went, gallantly over the end of the tramway,
down the big rock heap it thundered until it lay a pretty wreck on
the Josie road. Judging from tin
language used by the green horn
over thc mishap he must have foi
very badly indeed and ono iB lofi
lo imagine what  happened  when
boss heard of the wreck.
Today shortly after one o'clock
the accident was repeated with the
remaining oro truck on this branch
of the business, with this difference
however, that today a double team
of farmers was bitched to the ear
in place of just ono lone scab as
yesterday.
As far as can he learned no ono
was hurt or killed, but rolling
down ore cars over the waste dump
is hardly earning even $2.50 per
day, to say nothing of the cost of
repairs or replacements.
METEOR IS
BOOMING
Local   Manager    Herron
Looks for Good Times
in the New Camp.
Georgo W. Herron, local manager of the Meteor Townsite company, says that the prospects of
tho now camp took remarkably
well. '.
Rich strikes mave been made in
the Meteor, Stray Dog, Admiral
and some of the other working
properties. The shaft in th;'
Meteor is down 115 feet, and tin re
is 2} faet of high-grade ore un
covered. When the 150-foot level
is reached drifting bill wc commenced and later some of the rich
est. ore ever shipped in these parts
will be sacked and sent out. Two
shifts of men a day aro now al
work and later the force will be increased.
The Stray Dog has car load of
high-grade ore sacked and ready
for shipping. Tho White Swan it-
drifling on a well defined ledge wilh
good results.
The Horse Shoe and Oood Luck,
Oom Paul and other properties are
all working, and Mr. Hi iron think;
there will bo a genuine boom in
Meteor before snow time.
A NEW COBRA
TO BE BUILT
The Admiralty Orders Another Torpedo Boat
Destroyer.
New York, Sept. 27.—A dispatch
from London lo the Sun reports
that the Westminster Gazette
States on authority that, despite
the recent disasters to the torpedo
boal. destroyers Viper nnd Cobra,
the admiralty will place another
commission with the Klswiek works
to build a new torpedo boat de
.troyer ol the Parsons turbine typo
ui similar lines lo tbe Cobra, nnd
that she will be hum.bed next
spring.
Naval const rue tors -maintain
that thc turbine engine torpedo
boats aro as safe as others, bul
should not put to «citin the worst
weather,because as they arc light
they itre liable to be blown from
their course. Moreover, tbey have-
not a reversible motion and can
only stop by shutting off steam.
Tho fate of the Cobra hnsrevived
recollections of (lie ill-luck ol
many vessels in tho British navy
belonging to the "reptile" group
which woidd seem to justify tbe
superstitions of the jacktars. Koin

RAGE IN LONDON
Great Interest Manifested
in Yacht Contest.
CHAGRINED AT THE SHOWING
Sortie English Papers Have Given l'p
Hope-Others Were Wiser -All
Were Disappointed.
London, Sept, 27.—The morning
papers express the keenest disappointment over' tho, yacht
race. The Daily Graphic,
the Morning Post and the
Standard all contend that tho
weather conditions were too flukey
to justify any verdict on the ultimate performances, but oven the
small journals are not very Hopeful of the ability of the challenger
to "lift" the cup, and they admit
that her performance was very disappointing. The other papers
virtually abandon hope.
The great suburban population
of London was kept advised of the
progress of events by pyrotechnics
at the Alexandria and Crystal
palaces, on the north side of tho
city. Tho London crowds chiefly
gather'd on the Embankment,
watching the red and green eleclrie
ligbls making progrc.ssup tho high
tower on the sunny side in accordance with the varying position of
tho yachts.
Steam launches carrying the
same colors and patrolling the
I'hames k'o__i London Jiiidgo to
\W. ;niinslor also served to keep
the eager multitude in touch with
the Irans-Atlantio contest. Thousands of persons gathered, whila
c mstiint bulletins at the leading
ho!cls"supplied liie news to hundreds of others.
Among the masses gathered on
the Embankment the keenest disappointment was evinced. Evidently thev bad expected tho
challenger to outdo lhe defender
under any conditions. The sporting clubs announced a very small
amount of wafers.
King 1'ii.vard displayed great in-
lerestand was kept posted as to
every movement of tho yachts.

How Life Is Shortened by
Half-Cooked Oatmeal and

The Boo.toh, says the Health
Home, are the greatest dyspeptics
on earth, lately owing to thoir
•iso of half cooked oatmeal and
soft bread. Next to the Scotch are
ihe Americans, and no single thing
lias contributed more to American
lyspepaia than halfcookk) oatmeal
mush for breakfast. In rural
France, where dyspepsia, is practically unknown, bard bread and
.•o'gelahle. , wilh a very moderate
imount of meat, comprise thd chief
tems of thr bill of fare. Take the

THE YACHT RACE.
Although the report bo far received of the first yacht race for the
America's cup is distinctly an
Amerioan ono, British sympathisers with Sir Thomas Lipton
will not be able to get much comfort out of the account given.
When the boatB started there
was a moderately steady breeze
which gradually turned into a
light shifting wind and with these
conditions tbe Columbia led her
rival at the turning buoy seven
minutes 15 seconds. This was the
result of a dead beat to windward
of 15 miles in very light weather.
The account given says that
Shamrock II. gained somewhat on
the run home, but she was practically out of the race and would
have been badly beaten if the
time allowed for covering the
course had not expired as it did.
According to the press reports
Captain Barr of the Columbia obtained the windward berth at the
start and the slight advantage that
position gave him although in the
dispatches received yesterday
Shamrock was said to be the lirst
over the starting line by seven seconds.
Aeniilius Jarvis, the Canndian
Yachtsman is reporting the race for
the Toronto Globe and some other
Canadian papers and when his report is received we will all bo in a
position to better understand what
yesterday's race really proved or if
it demonstrated anything at all.
The course appears to have been
well patrolled yesterday and none
of the- excursion fleet interferred
with the yachts which had all the
sea room they wanted.
COAST POLITICS.
Notwithstanding all that has appeared in the provincial papers to
the contrary, it is extremely unlikely that there will be a general
election in British Columbia this
year. Until a new distribution
measure has been passed it would
be most unfair to have an appeal
to the people When the HoUBe
meets early in January it is possible that, after passing a re-distributive bill, tho administration
may be compelled to resign and resort to another general election,but
the provice as a whole is heartily
sick of politics, and the unrest and
disturbance that invariably accompanies the election period.
It is within the bounds of possibilities that the eager gentleman
who cabal and intrigue around Victoria and Vuncouver will be able
to settle a division of the spoils of
oflice among themselves which wil]
give us an administration of *iort_
without the bothersome necessity
of going through tho delights of a
general election.
Rossland peoplo who have
enough troubles of their own to
contend with will he profoundly indifferent as to whether thero is to
be an appeal to the public or not,
aB in any event the local situation
will remain unchanged.

The World has just received the
first and second numbers of the
West Fork News, published at
Beaverdell, a new camp situated at
the junction of Beaver Creek with
the west fork of Kettle river.
James W. Grier, who, al one time
worked on the Rossland Miner, is
the manager. "The policy.of the
News will be to advance the interests of 'the West Fork country
and to publish only facts in referring to mineral resources."
Good luck to the Boundary's latest
venture in newspaperdom.
A shareholder in the Ymir mines
recently wrote to one of the London
papers as follows: "The interest
of everyone connected with either
the Le Roi, the Ymir, the British
America Corporation or the London and British Columbian Gold-
fields is manifestly to break the
labor unions; and it is because I,
personally, aB a shareholder in
other companies, will be hit so
hard if the Le Roi directors give
way to the union that I want to
see all the directors of the Le Roi
pledged to co-operate with other
companies and try to break the
union and keep down the wages."
The writer is candid enough and
states his views very plainly. The
Ymir mines, by the way, still pay
the wages for muckers refused by
the Le Roi manager.
It is but tho sober truth to say
that the trade union is the paramount industrial fact, the logical
complement to the concentration
of capital which alone makes possible the giant business enterprises
to which the commercial and man-
factuiing interests of the raoe are
now committed. A threat to
"starve out trade unionism" iB like
a threat to blow up a powder
house or burn a factory. It voices
the brute ferocity of a past age.
There is still much missionary
work to be done before capital and
labor assume those amicable relations that will conduce to the material triumphs of a higher civilization that begins to dawn.

THE:
Real Situation.
Rossland, B. C., Sept. ^th, loor.
To tite Citizens and Business Men of Rossland and Vicinity and lo thc 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. 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 thc 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 ii 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 rais : 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 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 live furnaces
at thc Northport smelter. This is the success he boasts- 1 le 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 25. He claims to have
shipped one carload on August 21. 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 andi
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 fo 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 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. 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 almost1,
unbroken line of successes which have thus far attended our efforts.

Death of L. R. Goldie, Van
Anda Miner-Body
Is Lost.
Vancouver, B. C, Sept 27— L.
R. Ooldie, a miner of Van Anda,
met his death this morning by
being carried over the falls of Po
well rivor, thirty-five miles up the
coast from Vancouver. Goldie had
heen prospecting away up at the
headwaters of the stream and
oame down in a canoe. There is a
landing a quarter of a mile above
the falls, below which it is unsafe
to run a boat.
Goldie was coining down and
had started to run his canoe into
the landing when ho dropped his
paddle by air accident and a moment later he was helpless. The
paddle swirled around in a little
whirlpool and was carried out of
reach, and the man was carried
down the stream at an ever increasing speed. A few minutes
later he was carried over the falls,
which are over thirty feet high,
and since then neither ho or the
boat have been seen.

Among the Unions—Shorter Hours of Work-What
Is Being Accomplished.
Railroad employes in WeBtern
Australia are on Btrike for an increase in wages and shorter
hours.
Detroit boasts of a union of marine divers. An effort will be made
to organize all the divers of the
United States and Canada.
Los Angeles, Cal., Laundry
workers are on strike for recognition. The workers Beem to have

There seems little doubt that
tho widespread movement for a

It is but just that it should be
successful, for it is beyond question that the men can do as much
work in nine hours as they can in
ten.
Mayor Lalonde Will Try to
Get an Important Mat-'
ter Settled.
When the mayor is at the coast
next week he hopes to get the government to tako some action in regard to the roads running out of
Rossland..
"In all government grants a
reservation is made for road allowance" said the mayor today, "and
in many instances here money has
been spent on roads by the government, which at present remain
private property."
"The roads have heen duly surveyed and the department haB the
plans and all tbe necessary details
to proclaim the highways government roads,all tbat is required is a
notice in the Provincial Gazette,
describing the lands appropriated
and for this notice tho department
has all- tho material on hand1."
"We have- applied time and
again," said tho mayor, "but the
matter has always been put off. I
can hardly hope to accomplish
much at the present time under
existing circumstances at Victoria,
but I am going to try once more
and see if something can De
done."
Appropriating tho land necessary
by the city would prove rather
costly, and if the mayor's contention is correct the department
should gazette the roads at once.
