English Press Comment on the Debate—What the   Times Says
About the Outlook.
London, Aug. 3.—Mr. Chamberlain's declarations on behalf of the
government in the house of commons that great severity wo"hld, be"
tiBed hereafter in dealing with
Cape rebels and that Boers shooting captured blacks will, if taken,
bo executed, coupled with the assurance that a considerable number of troops will be brought home
at the end of September are treated by the morning papers as the
beginning of the third period of
the war. The Standard, Daily
Chronicle, Morning Post, Daily
Telegraph, Daily Mail, Daily
Graphic and Daily Express rejoice
at the "government's, resolute, attitude."
The Times says: "The Boers
have announced their determination to shoot every native who accepts service wi|h the British or
assists them in any way. Mr.
Chamberlain lias very properly
telegraphed instructions that all
who are found guilty of such
practices shall suffer death. We
have carried ' leniency very far,
further than it haa ever been carried in Ihe history of war and it is
time to think of the future in a
business way."

Now York,Aug. 3.—The striking
garment workers have decided to
call on the cutters employed by
several manufacturers partly to
force those who have not complied
with the demands of the strikers
to do so at once and partly to
forcii the manufacturers to accede
to the demands of the contractors,
in order that the strikers may return to work as soon as possible.

where it is hoped that they will
have a chance of life. On the
journey to Buffalo they were wrapped in a bed of cotton wadding
and hot water bags and   blankets.
Wanted—a good eight or nine

CORNER IN
LADYBUGS
South Africa Wants 20,-
000 of Them from Massachusetts.
Pittsfield, Mass., Aug. 3.—The
farmers of West Stockbridge and
other agricultural villiages near
here are excited over a proposition
to take 20,000 ladybugs from the
Berkshires and send them to Africa. The ladybugs are needed in
Africa to eat a certain insect injurious to the crops. It is thought
that if 20,000 of them are taken,
there will soon be a sufficient
suppy of the polka-dotted bugs to
do good service.
Professor Lounsbury, ot Capetown, has written to his friend, F.
C. Toby, of Sing Sing, who has a
summer home in Stockbridge.
Mr. Tobey wants 100 children to
catch the bugs, and offers a small
sum per gross for them.
Ladybugs abound hereabouts.
The farmers say the crops here
need the ladybugs as much as the
crops in South Africa do, and object strenuously to the exportation
of20,000 of them. However, Mr.
Tobey says he will soon ship the
bugs.
THE GREAT
DANE GROUP
Drewry's Latest Purchase
-Stock Will Not Be
Watered.
J. C. Drewry yesterday completed the purchase of the controling
interest in the Great Dane group
of claims. The group consists of
three claims situated on Morris
creek, the nortli tributary to the
St. Mary's river, and known locally as the Sawyer group,
The group is one of the best developed properties in St. Mary's
district. The work done so far
consists of a couple of tunnels run
in on the ledges and several big
open cuts run across the ledges in
different places to determine their
width.
It is Mr. Dewey's intention to
form a joint stock company to take
over and develop the Great Dane
group, the capital of which will be
in the neighborhood of 1200,000,
and tho stock isBiied at par so that
the property will not be required
to pay dividends on watered stock.
I.e Roi Meeting.
The extraordinary general meeting of La Roi shareholders in London which was called for the 8th,
has been postponed until August

AN EVIL POLICY
Will the Business Men of
Rossland Support It.
THE SCABS FRIEND A KNOCKER
Contemptible Attempt to Injure the
Best Interests of Rossland for a
Private Grudge.
"Barney the Knocker" is the
latest title the general manager of
the Le Roi company has conferred
upon himself through his paper
the Rossland Diminished Miner.
Mr. Macdonald has some differences wfth ex-Governor Mackintosh
and in order to hit him, "thefriend
of the scab" does not hesitate to
injure the best interests of Rossland camp.
It is quite true there is no state-
in the Giant circular which the
Miner publishes this morning that
Mr. Mackintosh need be ashamed
of. He is in very good company
and the mining men of the camp
will all agree that Mr. Long and
D. J. McDonald as experts stand
at least as high as "the knocker,"
but while the morning paper can
find no fault with the statement
referred to, its headlines—all same
Board of Trade letter—and its
whole treatment of the subject iB
intended to cast ridicule and
create doubts upon a meritorious
proposition whicb a resident of
Rossland is doing his level best to
get. work—good work—started
Upon.*.
The business men of Rossland
can at least knock the knocker's
paper and any one who advertises
in the Miner or in any way supports it for the'future must be
classed as a full member of the
"knockers society"
Is it not enough that Mr. Bernard Macdonald, in his insane
fight against unionism pure and
simple, has plunged the whole of
this community into the unfortunate condition which now exists
without his attempting to prevent
any property in the camp working?
In many ways the manager
of the Le Roi has already shown
that he is utterly regardless of the
people amongst whom he makes
his living but his latest move
should call down the wrath of all
decent thinking people upon his
newspaper.
Rosslanders need not worry ovi r
the nominal manager of tha paper,
he is acting under orders and as
everyone knows Iuib no financial
interest in the Miner. The paper
is the property of Mr. Macdonald
and liiH fellow conspiritors and
no lime should be lost in making it
clear that the publiodoes not approve
of the "knocker's policy" and will
not support a paper which advocates it.
Tlie Hold Up.
If people will indulge in Gooder-
ham's special this warm weather
they should not walk it off by
tripBto Northport in tin early
hours of the morning otherwise
newspaper reporters are apt to
get hold of them later and "hold
them up"—all same report of tho
highwaymen in this morning's
paper.

ARBITRATION.
Tina Canadian Pacific railway
has alienated a host of its supporters in the present Btrugglewith the
trackmen by its refusal to arbitrate
tbe questions involved. Tbe Toronto Globe has a lengthy article
on the whole subject in its issue of
last Monday, and a goodly portion
of the editorial exactly applies to
the situation here.
Aftev stating tbat tbe refusal to
arbitrate by the big railway would
seem to indicate that some one in
in authority on tbe C. P. R. had
momentarily lost 1ub head. The
Globe goes on to say the protracted
failure of the company to offer impartial arbitration oi the points in
dispute is hard to reconcile with
common sense or ordinary business
judgment. There is no principle
at stake, for every department of
the service has its union or brotherhood, authorized to conduct business negotiations on behalf of the
employes. Similar recognition
must in time be extended to tbe
Trackmen's Union, and thc most
the company can hope to accomplish by the most protracted and
destruotive conflict is a few years'
delay in the establishment of a
wan-king agreement with the men
through sume form of organization.
Employing corporations, after
experience with well-disciplined
trade organizations, seldom wish
to go back to anarchical conditions.
Rul it is futile to discuss the merits
and demerits of unionism in this
connection, when the trend of industrial society is so strongly in its
present direction. Unionism we
are certain to have for better or for
worse; and it is foolish to waste
money and property in struggles
■which merely bar the way to a
settlement of the real questions at
issue.
If machinery existed for compulsory arbitration public opinion
would certainly warrant official investigation in tbis case. Provision
has been made for impartial arbitration under the auspices of the
Labor Department, and why the
company should longer delay the
Submission of its case lo a judicial
tribunal is difficult to understand.
Tbe mutter should be settled equitably and without further delay.
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
Both Manager Maodonald and
Mannger MoNicoll have refused to
arbitrate with their  employes, and
the public opinion of the community will be all the inore-stning-
ly against them in consequence.
The extracts published in this
issue from the "Toronto Globe" on
the refusal of the C. P. R. to arbitrate the trackmen's difficulties
and the insane folly of attempting
to wipe out unionism in Canada,
will be read with interest. The
Globe is practically the mouthpiece
of the Dominion Government, and
is the lending Liberal paper in
Canada as all Canadians know.
Bernard Macdonald's effort to
injure the Giant flotation in the
morning paper of today should recoil upon "the friend of the scab"
and should result in a healthy boycott nf the Miner. There is simply
no excuse for trying to pay off a
private grudge by Hinging mud at
a neighboring mining property.
The Rossland Miner has been reduced from a six-column quarto to
a seven-column folio, and all its
live advertisements still appear

B. BANNETT, THE EVENING WORLD. ROSSLAND, B. C, AUGUST 3, 1901
POOR ROSSLAND!
Poor Rossland the unlucky! You're completely on the "bum"
With ore cars rusting idly, hoists and whistles cold and dumb.
Oouut Ericksen can't help you, or the Homestake.   I'm afraid
You won't get much assistance from your "kerbstone" Board of Trade.
You must,
Wait! Wait! Wait! While the 'bears' manipulate.
Le Roi's are five and falling still.   They've fetched 'em down from
eight.
They've clipped the bold War Eagle, nearly 'dowsed' the Centre Star
And worried poor old 'Barren' till he "dunno' where he are;"
And no one's seen him lately, though we've heard "promiskis like"
Of his torture by a savage band who raised the cry of "Hike."
Hike! l^ikc! Hike!    To quit they didn't like.
They drank "Bad luck to Barney," chief promoter of fhe strike.
ln London's busy city lurks u sordid, shady crew,
Ever scheming, ever planning how the public they can "do"
And if blood instead of money were the object of their game,
Thc tiger-shark and octopus would blush for very shame.
Roh! Rob! Rob!    Any dirty shady job,
While a mine is left to "handle," or a public left to rob.
For their latent "[ake,'' our city has been chosen as the scene,
And we're learning what tall lying, and real "agitation" mean;
Though the miner is the scapegoat, when the fads are better known
It will mean the sack for Harney, and the "dust bin" for "The Bone."
Hike! Hike! Hike;    Poor "Bone" you'll need a bike
But Barney'll want a special for his clean-up from the strike.
The shareholders arc waking, and they badly want to know
Where, if the mines are wealthy, all the vaunted profits go,
And the "wages' yarn won't soothe them, or the "agitator" bluff;
For they've'listened till they're weary, to such "tommy-rotten" stuff.
Wright! Wright! Wright   You've had your day.   Good night.
Just take a spell in "chokee" and the mines will pay all right.

COMMUNICATION.
Editor Evkni.no World.
Sir:—The man who manifests a
willingness to squander other peoples money, of which he is supposed to be a true and faithful
steward, for the purpose of gratifying a whim or satisfying a prejudice is naturally looked upon with
suspicion by all possessing common
sense. Mr. Bernard Macdonald
came across the boundary into tlie
Dominion bringing with him 1
vendetta against all unions, im
pclled by 11 revengeful desire to get
even with those who had come
"twixt the wind and his nobility"
in tbe Western States. From tbe
hour he arrived in tbis camp his
main desire has appeared to be to
create discord amongst tbe working
classes. That policy has been continued up to the present time, and
will doubtless be continued, nefariously of course, after he has been
brought to book by those whose
mopey is being wasted. A species
of savagery is noticeable throughout recent efforts, and now his
newspaper appears intent upon
destroying the reputation of Rosb-
land. Day after day the unscrupulous methods resorted to by Mr.
Keriiard Macdonald's newspaper
become more and more apparent.
For  choice frails and Iresh candies j He inspires  the  filthy   work  per-
f1,?™4^0^ by hiB  emissaries,   who
suffer from the blow? Not union
men alone, certainly not Bernard
I Macdonald; rather, the  tradesmen

To the Citizens and Business Men of Rossland andtyiMmty and to the General Public
The business and social interests of a community are so'closely interwoven in a community, like Rossliijid, that any dispute among the industrial eltiments forming- the social
structure, is often more disastrous to the business or non-cembattant class around which
the labor and capital elements revolve, than to the actual compattants themselves. Thus
both labor and capital are morally obligated to strive to adjust their disputes, to protect
the social structure of which th^y are separate parts. \

Fot .this reason this up io,n deetns it wesj^ to make a careful statement of all, the reasons,
leading us to precipitate this industrial;strife 4t ftiis-ftii*^ JstiiitSe the agreement; between the
big corporations of Rossland a,nd Rossland Miners' Union in April, 1900, this city has apparently enjoyed industrial peace ; yet all whd ar^conyersant with the ifldustrial 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(irests on-the fact that nearly one-half of the,
employees in the mines of this community receive about 20 per cent less wages than the
same class of labor in surrounding camps, many of which camps have a lower grade of ore
and are less favorably situated than Rossland, Vvl'e believe that it is to continue to enforce
this unjust scale of wages that so many annoyiog practices have been introduced to undermine the prestige of this'Miners' Union of Rossland. '
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. Mi
'■ 71' ■■-'.'■ :.. . ,->
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
the premises of the companies; a privilege guaranteed us1 by the last half of Article 15 of
the agreement of April, fooo.; thus preventing v$ from ^filling- our ranks depleted .by loss
of members compelled to seek employment in other fields.
Third.-—By connection

crush a sister union at Northport, Wa5h. ,   \
•"•■ ' -        ' *   J
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. cjue6tion is filially and satisfactorily settled. Then will ! this fair city enjoy the prosperity for which nature has so
evidently intended it.-,    -   ,j
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 we will
use all: bur power as an organization, and all the assistanceol the Western Federation of
Miners.
