Tim news from Northport this
afternoon can hardly bring mtieli
comfort to the manager.
Bela Kadish lias done his level
best to run furnace No. live hut it
slated the charge exploded last
night ami lhat the furnace was
completely wrecked. This will
cause the company ii heavy loss
in addition to the daily loss they
are sustaining and have sustained
since they inauguarated the lock
out.
Number two furnace has frozen
and will have to be taken apart
before it can be worked again.
The "skilled" labor now employed
by the manager is attempting to
start number four furnace without
much prospect of success.
Yesterday the manager secured
a car load of non-union men at
Spokane and they were shipped
nortli in a special car. Owing
to the representations made to the
men by a union agent, they all
left the train at Marcus and went
Id work on the Republic, railway.
When the car arrived at Northporl
it was empty. »

Rossland in so full of rumors and
fairy stories at the present time
that a daily paper could be published with nothing but current
yarns in it. Bernard Macdonald
went to Spokane yesterday—not
Australia or Alaska—but just to
Spokane—probably for rest and
change of air, or to cable London,
or meet thc new manager, or to get
men for the smelter, or hunt up a
new job.
The general manager did say at
Northport on Monday that he
might go to Australia and London.
He did not meet Edwin Durant
yesterday and that gentleman iB
believed to be still in London. Up
to 4 p.m., this afternoon no offer of
settlement of the strike had been
made or suggested by any one.
It is stated that the Nickel Plate
will be allowed to fill up to the
fiOO-foot level. The electrical compressor haB been closed down and
power will lie supplied from the
Black Bear plant..
The loss sn far incurred at the
Northport Bmolter is referred tp in
another column. It is now more
than sufficient to to have paid Ihe
increase asked for by tlie men for
the next two years.
Everything is quiet about the
mineB. V. II. Beatty head of the
Toronto law firm of Beatty. Black-
stock A' Co., is in town, and has
heen at the War Eagle company's

ing of the Mines.
Scranton, Pa., July 17.—There
was an almost complete cessation
of mining operations today in tha
Lackawanna valley because of the

Less than half a dozen mines
managed by individual owners and

West Scranton district were the
only ones in satisfactory shape for
running when the whistles blew
this morning. Only six Delaware
and Hudson collieries are in operation. ■  ■     '*'.'..     .■.

SWINGING AROUND.
It is ;i groat pity tliat every
resident of Rossland who is opposed
to unionism was not present at the
recreation grounds yesterday to
listen to the addresses given by
Messrs. Wilks and Buhner. There
was an absolute want of rant, or
appeal to passion or prejudice by
the speakers, and in place of these
a strong case was made out for the
position occupied by the Rossland
Miners' Union at the  present time.
But away above this aspect of
the viows advanced yesterday, was
the total absence of all bitterness,
the plea for moderation, and the
cheerful recognition that the mine
manager's heavy responsibilities
should be carefully considered in a
dispassionate review of the situation, which constantly occurred in
both speeches referred to. The
speeches themselves and the manner of their delivery, cannot fail to
deepen the good impression, now almost universal in Rossland regarding the stand taken by  the union.
It is perhaps not altogether nec-
cessary to make comparisons, but
Mr. Macdonald and his publication
the Rossland Miner do not show up
very favorably in the  light so  far.
The ver)' agumeuts which aresup-
posed to be the slock in trade of all
"agitators" are advocated by them
alone. Whatever of bitterness or
prejudice has been imported into
the contest so far has come from
them, and of answer or reply to the
quietly preferred case of the union
there has been absolutely none.
Violent, if thinly veiled attacks,
on unionism will hardly induce tin
community to take up arms against
the men who today are battling for
justice and fair wages. Public
opinion here is growing steadily in
favor of the union cause, and as all
the facts of the case become better
known and understood this will become more and more the case. The
whole result of yesterday's admirable demonstration has been (0
greatly strengthen and consolidate
the cause of unionism in Rossland.
THE .SCHOOL BUILDING.
It was announced this morning
with rather a flourish, that the
plans for the new school house had
been prepared and approved of by
the school trustees, and had been
forwarded to the department at
Victoria. The school board have
also asked for tenders for the construction of the building although
the approval of the department has
yet to be obtained. The board has
done the whole business, except
naming the contractor and they
might as well have done (hat while
they were about it.
Who prepared the plans approved of by the board ? Were competitive plans asked for ? Has the
city council approved, not only of
the plans, but of the whole way in
which tbe matter has been so far
handled ?
is Mr. Dunlop the "competent
architect" asked for by the government V If so, when did Mr.
Dunlop cease to be a contractor and
become an architect competent or
otherwise ?
Will the board of school trustees
and the city counoil please explain
the whole matter to the ratepayers,
who will eventually own and maintain the school building in question.
The last act «>f the city council
in the matter was to pass a resolution accepting the trusteeship of
the government grant of $10,000
conditionally. The next move in
the matter made public is the an
nouncement which appeared this
morning. An immediate expla.ll*
ation is in order.

NOTES AND COMMENTS.
The attention of Mayor Lalonde
is especially directed to the announcement of the school board
made public this morning. As a
member of the board ami as
mayor he of course is in possession
of all the facts in connection with
the new school buildings and the
ratepayers would like all details at
once.
That the War Eagle-Centre Star
manager should apply to the union executive for leave to proceed
with exploration work with diamond drills during the strike aad
the prompt and ready acquiesence
of the union would seem to imply
that there was no great bitterness
or bad feeling in existence at the
present time between the managers
and the men.
''We earnestly desire" said
President Bulmer yesterday "to do
nojthing in connection with this
strike which would injure the
mines we hope to work in, or to
make bad feeling between the managers and the men. When wo go
back to work we want to find every
thing safe and in good shape, and
good feeling prevailing all round"
and the audience testified their approval of these sentiments by vigorous applause.
it was stated yesterday that the
Barren declined all further responsibility for the situation here
and has so reported to his directors.

HUGE DAILY COST OF STRIKE
Three Hundred and Fifty Thousand
Dollars a Day—The Sinews of
War—Combine's Loss*
Pittsburg, July 17.—According
to figures compiled by the Pittsburg Dispatch, the steel strike is
daily canting* the companies involved $210,000, and the workmen
1166,000.
Practically no stocks have been
carried and the consumption has
kept pace' with the production for
some little time past. About 700
tons of the 1000 tonB daily produced by the American Sheet Steel
company is being lost and this rep-
resentsa loss-each day to the combine©! at least 150,000. In addition to these losses the many and
varied industries crippled now and
in prospect represent losses to the
men of large sums that cannot be
computed now.
The amalgamated men are said
to have a fund of over $200,000
with which to keep the stride going,
and the many amalgamated men
employ__Lin the various mills operating will go "a great way toward keeping the sinews of war in
good condition.

ENGLAND
IS ANXIOUS
Steel   Strike    Attracting
Much Attention in the
Old Country.
New York, July 14.—The steel
strike in America is attracting
much attention in England generally, and while long articles are
being printed in the newspapers
on the subject, no comment iB made
in the editorial columns, - according to the London correspondent
of the Tribune.
John Burns has been less reticent
for he forecasts an American Armageddon with the revival of the old
anti slavery feeling and the transformation of trusts into Btate organizations by the political power
of hordes of workmen.
Financiers watch the quotations
from Wall street, and are unmoved
by socialistic tirades. Combinations are felt to be on trial in America and if they survive the great
conflict with organized labor con
centration of capital will be promoted in England.

j Rossland, B. C, July 12th, 1901.
To the Citizens anilBusiness Men of Rossland and Vicinity and-.to the General Public: •■'■"
The business and social interests of a community are so closely interwoven, in a community like Rossland, that any disptitfe' among the industrial elements forming the social
structure, is often more disastrous Co the* business* or non-combattant class around which
the labor and capital elements tevolve, tfiari 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 deeilis it well to make a careful statement of all the reasons
leading us to precipitate this industrial strife at this tjme. Since the agreement between the
big corporations of Rossland and Rpssjftnd 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 Icnow there has been a secret warfare waged against
this Miners' Union, which has beep 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
I conclusion that the foundation of the trouble rests on the fact t^it nearly one-haflf of the
! employees in  the  mines -of this comiminity" receive about 20 per cent less wages than the

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 satisfactorily 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
the general public'of this city. , '   ' 'A   -

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 our power as an organization, arid all the assistance of the Western Federation of
Miners. R|
We have right on our side and must surely win. ;
