The experience of George Davis
one of the arrivals at the smelter
Sunday morning from Leadville
will show in its true light the real
conduct of the management in
"breaming up the Smeltermen's
Union at all costs." Davis was interviewed at length last night by a
World man, and here is bis story:
My name is George Davis, and I
am 28 years of age. I am a machinist by trade, and worked in the
State of Colorado three months
Being out of employment I drifted
into Leadville looking for work.
On Tuesday, the 22nd inst., I was
approached by a party wearing an
United StateB deputy marshall's
badge. He offered to pay my
transportation to Northport, Washington, to go to work at the smelter
plant there. He told mn that it
was a small, sparsely settled place,
and that tbe smelter had been shut
down for several months, and had
opened up with some Italian and
foreign laborers, and the company
had discharged them all and was
looking for u more desirable class.

existed,anil lhat there was no trouble
of any kind there except a few discontented Italians. He offered to
all that would .go, free fare,
and free meals on the way.
We left Leadville last Wednesday morning, and he had
70 men altogether. We came to
Grand Junction, Colorado, after
dark, and there he purchased six
loaves of bread and some butler
for nearly 65 men. There was a lot
of kicking and five deserted the
party before we reached Salt Lake
City, Utah. He also missed four
at Ogden, Utah, in changing cars
to the Oregon Short Line from the
Rio Grande Western, lie had
with him four armed men besides
himself, who also claimed to be
United States deputies.
They explained that the Italians
at Northport would attempt violence and that a show ol arms would
scare them off. These live so-
called marshals all carried *l*f calibre revolvers and bells lined with
ammunition. On reaching Po-
catlelo, Idaho, wc were given bread
and butler and about half of the
parly purchased their own meals.
Those leaving to buy meals were
watched and continually told to
hurry back to the cars. A good
many went hungry and one man
from Victor, Colorado, left the
train while it was starting out and
was shot at by Mr. J. Lamb, who
claimed be violated his agreement
by leaving the party. We were
told that the wages at Northport
were from ♦,'! up, and work all the
year round. There wen* not 'JO
men in the party that understood
smelter work but he promised all
plenty of time to learn. Through
some information wired to him ut
Glenn's Kerry we were side-tracked
at a small place in the woods 40
miles from Pendleton, Oregon. H_
said we were left there through
some misunderstanding on the part
of the railway officials and would
continue the journey next morning.
We came into Pendleton, -Oregon,
at 7:30 a.tn. with the mail train
that picked us up at the siding.
There     lots     of    hungry     men
went   in    search    of    food   and
in changing cars several lost their
luggage.    He lost 10 men   at   Pendleton and from that on he kept a
a closer watch on the rest.    We arrived hungry and tired at Spokane
and they   started  to   hurry us all
like  a   herd   of   cattle   over  to a
special train ull ready to start.  On
leaving tbe cars some men banded
the boys in the party  some  tracts
and in getting into the special on
the Spokane   Northern I read  the
circular that   was   handed   to me
and from that I learned that there
was a su ike at NorthporJ and that
the uuion   was fighting the management of tbe smelter plant, and
that the   tnion requested all men
to stay away.   On   learning   these
facts   '    immediately   attempted,
with several   others,   to   leave tlie
train, but found it surrounded with
armt 1 men and I was confronted
by Mr. Lamb with a drawn revolver and forced at the point of the
pistol to get back   into   the car.
Several others   tried  to   leave but
only   two   succeeded     in   getting
away.     They     then   posted   two
guards   at   the   front   door of the
coach, two in tbe rear, and one on
the engine   to   hold   the mon who
had by   this   time   become  badly
scared and who all knew they were
the victims of a  dirty,   contempt-
able   piece   of   treachery.     They
crawled   along thc track  all night
and kept stopping  along  the road
looking for some attempt to  wreck
the train.    We  had  no  dinner or
supper and were hungry  and tired
and all  were   disgusted   with the
whole     business.      I   called   Mr.
Lamb's  attention   to  tlie  circular
and referred  to  what  he bad told
us at tbe start, and he said:    '"You
are up against it  now,  and if you
attempt to  leave  this  train I will
put a bullet through you."
Wc left Spokane at 7 o'clock i 11
the evening and arrived in North-
porl at 4:15 a.m. We Btoped before entering the town at the
quarry and the deputies went
ahead to examine the switch. On
pulling up the track to the smelting plant the deputies made a
great show of guns and on arriving
at the plant we were all driven off
the cars like a lot of cattle and at
the point of thc pistol told to get
into the works. The striking union
men were at the train when it arrived and did not molest any of
the men except to try and inform
them of the true state of affairs.
I saw Mr. Lamb and two of the
other deputies strike at some of the
union men with their guns and
also threaten to shoot them. We
were given breakfast and told that
we were to start to work the next
morning. I found that the wages
were not what had been promised
anal saw at once tbat I had been
badly deceived. J found out at
the plant that Mr; Lamb and his
other four deputies were not United
States marshals at all; but simply
scabs who went to Colorado to get
a hundred men to come to North-
port to take the striker's places.
They told ine if I went down town
that the union men would break
my head or attempt to kill me. I
took no stoek in the stories hut
made up my mind to leave the
plant and seek Work elsewhere.
They informed us on our arrival
that we Would be be charged $:.">
for our railway fare and 25 cents
for each meal. Tbe meals were
bread and butter and lots of good,
clear ice water, and that twice a
day for four days. I did not want
to take a striking union man's
place, and what is more to the"
point. 1 would never dream of puy-
ing $'25 from my first month's
labor for the privilege of  scabbing.

BREAKING THE  LAW.
The latest policy adopted by tbe
smeller nianagement-at Northport
to smash the union there in conformity with Manager Radish's
now historic statement, '"we are
{roing to break up your union at
all costs" will hardly meet with
tbe approval of the law abiding
citizens of this country.
Headers of the World must have
been astonished yesterday to learn
tbat Mr. Kadish had openly defied
the law at Northport and had
armed himself and his men and so
equipped had openly paraded the
streets of tbe town on yesterday
and Sunday.
The court room where an investigation was proceeding yesterday morning, was invaded by four
of these armed bullies who refused
to surrender their weapons until
arrested on tbe street a little later
and locked up.
It is a well known fact tbat the
union at Northport has strictly
forbidden its members to carry
weapons of any sort and in every
way has struggled to maintain order.
The action of the smelter superintendent—who is acting under
the direct personal supervision of
Bernard .Macdonald-1—in arming
himself and his men and openly
seeking a quarrel wilh lhe union
men in the courts and on the
streets, is of course taken with tbe
avowed purpose of stiring up the
union men to some act of resentment in the hope that a brawl will
occur with possibly loss of life.
The union will the be called upon
to defend its action and-a plea will
be raised for troops, horse foot and
artillery—to quell anil over awe
the wicked Holers.
Hut if the wicked policy of the
real strife-seeker at the smeller
town is now apparent, other practices equally abominable are daily
being brought to light. Let any
one read lhe interview of George
Davis, published in this issue anal
say whether or not the smelter
management's course of action
should meet with public approval.
Davis is one of the men captured
by tbe smelter agent in Leadville,
one of the party rushed into the
smelter stockade in tbe early hours
of last Sunday morning, and his
account of how he was entrapped
into coming north and his treatment enroute and on his arrival
at tbe smeller makes interesting
but rather painful reading fo anyone who is striving lo' believe in
tbe good faith of (he Le Itoi management.
Will Mr. Maodonald think it
necessary to submit the facts—the
real fuets—concerning the condition of affairs at Noiihporl, lo
his directors In London? orwillhc
lake the necessary steps lo suppress General Kadish and his
armed troops 1 Twoof the rioters
have heen arrested, disarmed and
fined. Warrants have been issued
by the local authorities against all
the late offenders including Kadish
personally, bul a word from General Manager Bernard Macdonald
will slop all this  mischief.    Will
he give it 1

hours, were the question at issue
considered on their merits by the
parties in interest. But it is apparent that these two companies,
long since, decided lo break up
the miners' union, and the union
men knew tbe struggle was to
come. It will he a fight to a finish, and if the battle is won by lhe
companies, it will only he the
commencement of trouble iii Kootenay and Vale, for union and
non-union men do not work in

THE MINER SALE
F. Aug. Heinze Makes an
Official Announcement.
ADMITS HE SOLD THE PAPER
Some Interesting Facts Re-Called -
Purchaser Tried to Cover Up
His Tracks in Vain.
The Spokesman-Review   having
been stirred up from Butte to assist iu clearing P, A, Heinze from
the attacks of tlie Rossland Miner
on unionism, generously agreed to
wire back for particulars.
Mr. Heinze was of course away
but his side partner John- Muctiin-
nis replied to the Spokesman us
follows:
"Hutte, Mont, July 2(1.—Editor
Spokesman-Review: Mr. F. Aug.
Heinze is not here. Answering
your telegram, it is true that he
sold the Rossland Miner.
"John MacGinnts."
The Spokesman puts the statement in a border and publishes it
as news in Spokane.
Commenting on the message
und the sale the Spokesman
says:
"Mr. MacGinnis took a day to
answer the message it is presumed that in the meantime he
communicated with hiB chief to
see whether the time was ripe for
the announcement.
The Rossland Miner was bought
by Mr. Heinze in 1897, for $10,000,
from Messrs. Reuvis & Jackson.
He wanted it to further his railway and smeller projects in British Columbia. The price at which
he has sold is not known, but it is
known    that   he  refused   offers  of
*'J,ri,(ioo for the property."
.Mr. Heinze is suid to have demanded $30,000 for the Miner,
dropped to $20,000 and later lo
$1^,000 which was his  real   price.
The purchaser in (his last sale.did
not pay anything like* 18,000. The
Miner was handed over for a much
more modest sum, Any newspaperman who has examined the working plant of the Miner can quickly estimate its value.
The "good will" of the Rossland
Miner, under existing conditions
and considering what has happened in the past two months is
no longer a doubtful quantity.
If Mr. Heinze has merely leased
his properly, us some people seem
to think he will have some difficulty in re-establishing its usefulness when he resumes the ownership.
When the sale of the paper was
lirstjtnnouneed in these columns
early in June, the Miner manager
published the lollowing—which
will he read with some amuse ment
at the present time.
Miner, June lo.
"For    the     information
tho    general    public     we
lish the following message.
June 11, Hutte Mont.—You can
publish statement that there has
been no change in ownership "of
Rossland Miner nor is any contemplated.
I). J. Fitzgerald.
Mr. Fitzgerald representing Mr.
Heinze hits ownol the Rossland
Miner for the last (wo years or
more."
The Hutte Reveille Btates not
only lhe transfer of the paper but
places the dale May 1,5, and adds
that since that day Mr. Heinze
has had no connection with the
paper.
Mr. MacGinnis now officially
confirms what everyone has
known lo be the case since the beginning of June.
Butte, Montana, $0000 a year, and
when he sold it to Bernard Macdonald for the Le Roi company, he
unloaded a small-sized elephant
onto that English company. The
Nelson Miner has cost someone in
the neighborhood of $20,000 since
January 15, 1899, and its plant is
not worth as much today as it was
the day it was packed into Nelson
from Sproat's Landing on the back
of "Joe" Wilson's mules. The
Economist is alive and the Tribune
is still paying Irish dividends.

Rossland, B. C, July 12th, 1901.
To the Citizens and Business Men of Rossland and Vicinity and to the General Public:
The business and social interests of a community are so closely interwoven in a com-
iiminity like Rossland, that any dispute among the industrial elements forming the social
structure, is often more disastrous to the business or non-combattant class around which
the labor ancl 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 the
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 the
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 tlie fact that nearly one-half of the
employees in  the   mines  ot  this  community receive about 20 per cent less wages than the

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
tlie premises of the companies, a privilege guaranteed us by the last half of Article 15 of
the agreement of April, 1900; thus preventing us from refilling our ranks depleted by loss
of members compelled to seek employment in other fields.
Third.—By connection with bogus employment agencies seeking to flood 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 satis-
factorally 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 v.e 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
