HAZARDOUS TRIP.
The World has been kept well
posted concerning the closing down
of tho Northport Bmelter and the
attitude of the management to the
men. It has not been thought advisable to make any comment on
the situation until it was clear that
the difficulty would not be settled
without trouble.
Just what the Le Roi management is going to do remains to be
seen. The men have organized a
strong union and are fully prepared
for any event  which  may happen.
It is not credible that all the Le
Roi mines and the niolter would
close down and suspend work
simply because the smelter foreman
had some trouble with tho employes. It is believed that all existing difficulties will be settled this
week.

SENSATION
IN IDAHO
Arrest of John King for a Murder
Committed in 1898—The Story
of The Crime and Arrest
Lewiston, Idaho, May 21.—A
sensation has been caused here by
the arrest of John N. King, a well
known business man, charged with
the murder of Charles E. Thatcher.
The latter, who was a partner of
King, was murdered in the firm's
store at Lapwai, twelve miles from
Lewiston, on the night of July 15,
189S. King's statement at the
coroner's inquest was to the effect
that two masked men entered the
store aud sltot Thatcher. Two bul •
lets of different calibre were found
in the body.
The warrant for Kiug's arrest
was issued on complaint made by
Harry Thatcher, a brother of the
murdered man. The state will attempt to prove that King and
Thatcher quarrelled and that King
took two revolvers from the bed
which both men occupied and fired
a bullet from each into Thatcher's
body.
GOVERNMENT SUSTAINED.
Liberal   Amendment  Defeated-'lrlsh
Members did not: Vote.
London, May 21.—The House of
Commons by 300 to 123 votes rejected the motion of Sir Henry
Fowler, Liberal, which was supported by tho Liberal leaders, disapproving tho budget proposals.
Mr. Balfour the government leader
announced that the government
would regard its adoption as a vote
of non-confidence. The Irish members abstained from voting.

THE   SITUATION.
A late arrival in the camp from
England via Montreal and Toronto
says that British Columbia mining
propositions are regarded in the
old country and in eastern Canada
at the present time, in the same
way and for practically the same
reason.
In London the passing of the
expected Le Roi dividend and the
explanations given for so doing,
has angered investors and speculators iu mining stocks to a degree
only understood here by those who
very closely follow the English
market.
Accustomed, as we in Rossland
are, to see the daily and almost
hourly advance of the Le Roi,
Great Western and Le Roi No. 2
mines, the steady increase of the
shipments and the adjustment of
the new machinery, and the new
condition of matters generally in
these Red Mountain properties, it
is not easy to follow the great disappointment in England when the
dividend was passed.
We can more readily grasp the
unpleasant situation in eastern
Canada caused by the War Eagle-
Centre Star fiasco, particularly as
we are partly, at least, aware of the
causes which have led up to the
present state of things "on the
Hill," and which have made the
management ot the twin mines a
byword and a jest among tjie mining men of tbe Kootenays.
The World has good reason for
believing that both iu England
and in eastern Canada the two
causes for depression will shortly
be removed. The record shipments which are going to North
port week by week must make
themselves felt in the financial con
dition of the Le Roi companies in
a short time, and so far as the
"Twins are concerned. It is no
longer a secret that very radical
changes will shortly be made. Just
how far reaching or in exactly'
what shape these changes will be
we do not know, but it may be
taken for granted that the mistakes
of the past will not be repeated if
the executive can prevent them by
careful forethought. The Montreal and Toronto markets, where
definite news on the subject will
probably first be announced, have
already shown a steady and distinctly better tone in Centre Star
and War Eagle shares and generally more confidence in British Columbia mining stocks.
Local men are united iu expressing the belief that "the lean days"
are over and that the coming days
will wituess a gradual returu'in the
east of the old time interest aud
confidence in western mining ventures .
only once a year at annual meetings is it possible to obtain anything like authentic information.
The absurdity of inducing the investing public to come into a mining venture, practically pay for the
mine, and then refuse them all information as to tbe condition and
progress of tbe property should not
be tolerated for a moment.
If the eastern Canadian papers
were thoroughly posted iu the history of the last two years management of the War Eagle and Centre
Star mines aud did their duty fairly
and fearlessly, the experiment tried
by Messrs. Gooderham & Co.
would not be repeated this century.
By all means let us have monthly reports and let them be made as
public as possible.
EDITORIAL NOTES.
A. L. Houston, representing the
Industrial World of Rossland, gave
The News a pleasant call Thursday afternoon. He'has been making a canvass in Trail for the benefit of his paper, meeting with fair
success.—Trail Creek News.
Wake up News, wake up! The
Evening World has been circulating all around you since May 1.
Are you the only man in Trail
who does not know it?
Tbe city authorities will doubtless agree to publish a statement
regarding the present financial position of Rossland such as was asked for by a WcRLD correspondent
yesterday. The ratepayers are entitled to fully understand the vote
they are asked to give on the 28th
and all necessary information
should be promptly given.
It is evident that one feature of
the camp's last pay day was the
large amount invested by working
miners in stocks. The World
hopes for a steady rise iu all mining shares from the absurd price
they have been standing at.

MINERS ACQUITTED.
MINE REPORTS.
At a meeting of a Slocan raining
company at the coast last week it
was refreshing to read that the directors instructed tbe mine manager to make a full monthly report
to them of the progress and condition of the mine, aud further arranged that such reports should be
printed and furnished all stockholders forthwith.
The information so given out
will of course find its way into the
columns of the press and the public will thus be kept well posted re-
gaiding the particular property
mentioned. Investors are far more
likely to purchase shares in a mining company conducted iu this
way than in one about which so
much secrecy is   maintained   that
Roy and DuRelle, Charged with Assaulting a Chinaman, Go Free*
M. H. Roy and Fred DuRelle,
two members of the Phoenix miners union who were charged with
"unlawful assembly" in connection with running a Chinaman out
of the camp in January last, were
tried at Vernon last week and both
men were promptly acquitted and
discharged. Details of the trial are
not yet to hand.
We want te call your attention to the

THE  SITUATION.
A late arrival in the camp from
England via Montreal and Toronto
says that British Columbia mining
propositions are regarded in the
old country and in eastern Canada
at the present time, in the same
way and for practically the same
reason.
In London the passing of the
expected Le Roi dividend and the
explanations given for so doing,
has angered investors and speculators in mining stocks to a degree
only understood here hy those v.'ho
very closely follow the English
market.
Accustomed, as we in Rossland
are, to see the daily and almost
hourly advance of the Le Roi,
Great Western and Le Roi No. 2
mines, the steady increase of the
shipments and the adjustment of
the new machinery, and the new
condition of matters generally in
these Red Mountain properties, it
is not easy to follow the great disappointment in England when the
dividend was passed.
We can more readily grasp the
unpleasant situation in eastern
Canada caused by the War Eagle-
Centre Star fiasco, particularly as
we are partly, at least, aware of the
causes which have led up to the
present state of things "on the
Hill," and which have made the
management ot the twin mines a
byword and a jest among the mining men of the Kootenays.
The Worm) has good reason for
believing that both in England
and in eastern Canada the two
causes for depression will shortly
be removed. The record shipments which are going to North-
port week by week must make
themselves felt in the financial condition of the Le Roi companies in
a short time, and so far as the
"Twins are concerned. It is no
longer a secret that very radical
changes will shortly be made. Just
how far reaching or in exactly
what shape these changes will lie
we do not know, but it may be
taken for granted that the mistakes
of the past will not be repeated if
the executive can prevent them by
careful forethought. The Montreal and Toronto markets, where
definite news on the subject will
probably first be announced, have
already shown a steady and distinctly better tone in Centre Star
aud War Eagle shares and generally more confidence in Hritish Columbia mining stocks.
Local men are united in expressing the belief that "the lean days"
are over and that the coming days
will witness a gradual return iu the
east of the old time interest and
confidence in western mining ventures.
only once a year at annual meetings is it possible to obtain anything like authentic information.
The absurdity of inducing the investing public to come into a mining venture, practically pay for the
mine, and then refuse them all information as to the condition and
progress of the property should not
be tolerated for a moment.
If the eastern Canadian papers
were thoroughly posted in the history of the last two years management of the War Eagle and Centre
Star mines and did their duty fairly
and fearlessly, the experiment tried
by Messrs. Gooderham & Co.
would not be repeated this century.
By all means let us have monthly reports and let them be made as
public as possible.
EDITORIAL NOTES.
A. L* Houston, representing the
Industrial World of Rossland, gave
The News a pleasant call Thursday afternoon. He has been making a canvass in Trail for the benefit of his paper, meeting with fair
success.—Trail Creek News.
Wake up News, wake up! The
Evening World has been circulating all around you since May 1.
Are you the only man iu Trail
who does not know it?
The city authorities will doubtless agree to publish a statement
regarding the present financial position of Rossland such as was asked for by a Wcri.d correspondent
yesterday. The ratepayers are entitled to fully understand the vote
they are asked to give on the 2hth
and all necessary information
should be promptly given.
It is evident that one feature of
the camp's last pay day was the
large amount invested by working
miners in stocks. The Wori.d
hopes for a steady rise in all mining shares from the absurd price
they have been standing at.

MINE REPORTS.
At a meeting of a Slocan mining
company at the coast last week it
was refreshing to read that the directors instructed the mine manager to make a full monthly report
to them of the progress and condition of the mine, and further arranged that such reports should be
printed and furnished all stockholders forthwith.
