AGAINST
OCEAN RACES
Strong Protest From the
Field—Nothing to be
Gained-A Bluff.
London, June 22.—The Field today enteres a very strong protest
against the proposed yacht races
across the Atlantic, which the paper says would probably end in
disaster and the loss ol valuable
lives, and against Sir Thomas Upton's defiance of the traditions of
British yaohtmen by encouraging
such proceedings for cutter yachts.
In this connection the Field
says: "We are aware that British
sailors know no fear, but to say
that experienced men would delight to cross the Atlantic in a cutter like the Shamrock is the wild
est absurdity.
"Wf contend that such a race
would be no test of the strength of
the yacht or of a steamship, because if the weather were fine the
strain would be less than in a
choppy sea of the channel, and if
the weather was foul the yachts
would surely he wrecked.
"Mr. Thomas Lawson's assent is
probably due to disappointment in

A NASTY
ARTICLE
Armstrong's Friends Deny
Statement  in Morning Paper Today.
The friends a,f W. I*. Armstrong,
the defeated pugilist in last Tuesday's boxing match here, are greatly incensed over an article which
appeared in this morning's  Miner.
They say that Armstrong went
away quite openly and made 110
secret of his departure. That be
lived very quietly iluring his stay
here, squared up all bis bona fide
debts beforo leaving, took very
little money away with him, ami
that they are at it loss to understand who could have induced the
morning paper to publish such a
particularly nasty article.
A canvas about town this morning failed to locate any lamenting
creditors of Armstrong's and presumably the article was inserted in
error.
Armstrong fought fairly and was
beaten, but he hardly seems to
have deserved the shabby treatment accorded him by the Miner.
He is not here to answer the statement, otherwise it probably would
not have appeared.
When a man is dead or absent
it is wise to abstain from making
such a statement as appeared this
morning.

SEVENTY FOUR HUNDRED TONS
Six Shippers This Week- Cars Detained at Northport Causing
Delay—7409 Tons,
The green hands employed at
the Northport Smelter are responsible for the ore output from the
camp for the-past week being a little below the average expected.
Tho men take so long to unload
the cars at the roast heaps that
ore trains are delayed in returning
here, and consequently there has
been a shortage of cars.
Appended will be found tbe estimate for the week up to 3 p. m.

NEW ZEALAND PROSPEROUS.
In discussing compulsory arbitration and its effect in New Zealand we are gravely told that while
the scheme may work advantageously so far as ordinary industrial problems are concerned it
works disastrously when applied to
the mining of precious metals, that
industry being on an entirely different footing, the values obtained
having a fixed price in the markets
of the world and not being open to
competition like other productions.
In this respect, it is repeatedly
asserted that New Zealand, so far
as her mines are concerned, is in a
deplorable condition and capitalists are depicted as giving the
colony a very wide berth.
The statement is all moonshine.
New Zealand is prosperous and her
gold mines are increasing their
output. In May 1900 the total
output for the month was 29.095
ozs., valued at .£111,860. The output for May 1901 according to a
Reuter cable was 3(5,457 ozs., valued at £143,893; The output itself and the increase in one month
of £31,533 gives an emphatic denial to the story of reported failure
in New Zealand.
Were British Columbia today
like New Zealand "A land where
there are no strikes" we would not
lack capital to develop the mining
industry.
Any country in tho world which
can hold out the promise, to labor
and capital alike, that no strikes
or lock-outs need be feared, can
discount all other advantages that
may he offered by communities
liable to such disastrous troubles.
CONCILIATION.
People who talk pleasantly and
vaguely about conciliation as tbe
best means of settling industrial
disputes have their attention drawn
to the Dominion conciliation act,
which it is now desired to use in
settling tbe C. P. R. trackmen's
case.
There is no provision, however,
to bring either or both of the contending parties before the tribunal
created by the act and it is practically useless for the purpose for
which it was passed. The same-
objection of course applies to tbe
trouble at Northport, although in
tbat case, the smelter being in the
United States, a Canadian court of
arbitration would have no jurisdiction, but as the smelter is practically controlled from this side of
the line there would be little or no
difficulty in Bottling the ease if a
compulsory arbitration act was in
force here, as the men have already
declared themselves only too glad
to arbitrate tbe whole question.
There is nothing in the New
Zealand system which prevents
"conciliation" playing a large part
in the settlement of labor disputes,
and as a matter of fact it always
does. Nothing could better demonstrate tbe utter uselessless and
impracticability of oUr own act
than the railway strike in progress
at the present time.
EDITORIAL NOTES.
Gradually the truth is coming
out about the relative merits of
British and American locomotives.
The Midland railway saved £-100
apiece on the market price of Un-
American engines ordered about
the time of the engineering strike
at home; but these locomotives
cost 20 per cent, mctc for fuel, 50
per cent, more for oil, and 60 per
cent, moro for repairs than similar
engines built in England. That
seems pretty well to settle the
question.
It would appear that Whitaker
Wright kept on the petty cash of
the B. A. C. in London, viz: £157,
the main account, £23.000, being
at Vancouver, B. C, far from the
busy haunts of the London stock
broker. Certainly a far-sighted
move.
The population of Paris is 2,-
606,000, an increase of 249,000
since 1896.
Government ownership of the
Canadian telegraph system is mooted at Ottawa. It cannot come too
soon and is certain to be a popular
move before very long.
The total receipts of the Suez
canal in 1900 were 93,000,000 f.,
and the profit 52,000,000 f., or about
$10,400,000 roughly,

German coal when the French
miners were on strike? Mr. S.
Woods thereupon explained that
the British miners could not at
present pledge themselves ton general strike, but if Buoh a strike occurred in FrallCe or any other
country they would do what they
could to prevent the exportation of
British coal to that country.
The Penrhyn Quarries Dispute.
—At Bangor uoveral persons from
the Bethesdu quarry district were
fined for being concerned in a dem
onetration of hostilities to officials
of the Penrhyn quarries, who ha.ve
been at work for the last threo
weeks. From the evidence it appears that crowds of people follow
ed these officials to their homes
each evening, and showed their disfavour by jeering and hooting
Las week a strong force of police
was sent into' the district to escort
the officials. For the prosecution
it was stated that the women of the
place were more active in their
demonstrations than the men. A
meeting was held in the evening to
protest against the importation of
police. The quarries will be open
to-those who have applied for work
on June 11.
Ireland.—Mr. T. W. Russell
spoke on the 5th at a convention in
Belfast in promotion of the compul
sory sale of land.—A gasometer ex.
ploded on the 3rd at Cork. Four
men were injured. The managers
of the gas company are convinced
that the explosion was connected
with a strike now in progress.

The following is another mining
story told by Timothy W. Brooks,
an old California miner, Borne of
whose yams have already appeared
in the Would:
"The Trojan mine of Calaveras
county, California, made several
Boston men millionaires years ago.
It was discovered by two Germans
who could scarcely speak English.
They had been running truck gardens for the mining camps in Calaveras county, and knew just the
simplest facts about gold and silver
mining. They were Herman Becker and Laurence Trimmer. In
January, 180.5, Becker and Trimmer found that some money could
be made by gathering oak wootl for
fuel in the mountains of Calaveras
county. They set out, expecting to
make possibly $30 or $-40 each by
a month's word. They lived in an
abandoned miner's cabin. Snow
was on the ground two feet deep all
about.
One day they built a great bonfire of brush, which melted the
snow and left an area of hot earth
Becker got a haunch of doer meat,
and prepared to bake it in the hot
earth. He dug two feet down, and

Boston stockholdings $;i(),(X)0 a
