THE WEST END TAILOR.
(Special to I he World)
Northport, Juno 21.—Last night
wo had a joint meeting of the citizens anil the Union men. It was
called particularly to hear Mr.
Daniel H. Carey, the attorney for
the smelter, explain his views on
the lockout and the strike.
The meeting opened with rousing
speeches from the Rev. Mr. Henry,
minister of the Presbyterian church
here, John A. Kellogg, J. (J. Mars-
hull and Judge Harkness, attorneys
of this town.
All commended the union for
their conservotive, quiet and peaceful conduct and for their use of
moral suasion only, during this
lock-out and strike.
The idea conveyed by all the
speeches was, that the men were
striking for a principle and that
the principle was right, viz : the
undoubted right to form a union.
The men were advised to stand firm
and they would win, and if not,
the principle would, even if they
went down in the fight.
The principle is the same as expressed by Maculav in his lays of
ancient Home :
" How can man die better
Than facing fearful odds J
For the ashes of bis father
And the temples of his Gods ?"
Now for the anxiously looked for
Speakers of the evening, Mr. Carey.
Amidst a mass of verbiage the main
ideas were so mixed that it isdiHicult
to write, a concise aocount. Briefly, Mr. Carey, speaking for himself
as an Individual citizen and not as
an attorney forthesinelter,said that
as he saw the matter there was nothing between the management and
the men, and tbat we should all go
to work and be happy and glorious
There was only one little matter
to agree to, a mere form, and of no
account. That was tbe black list,
for there was one, of about ten
names, perhaps fifteen, may be
twenty or even twenty five; after
all were at work these men would
be discharged with the consent of
tho union. All this was a mere
matter of form', as these men bad
all, or nearly all, left town.
There might be a few left but these
men should agree to sacrifice thorn-
solves for the good of the majority,
and the Union should commit this
mora] murder on their twenty five
brethren iu tlie bonds of unionism,
Next, Mr. Carey said lhat be hail
lols he had bought and paid for,
worth three thousand dollars,which,
if we did not return to work, he
would sell for two hundred dollars.
Mr. Carey concluded with a coarse
and pointless story, the inference of
which was that tbe men were in-
sapable of judging matters as they
did nol possess any intelligence.
The union and the representative citizens present agreed that
the insult offered to the union by
Mr. Carey was unprecedented and
uncalled for. That the members of
the union had conducted thom-
sa'lves like men and tbat they were
holding out for principle, and have
been orderly and quiet, well understanding how the tit her side is spoiling to make trouble and get up a
scrap.
I    One matter has been advanced a
snail's step. For over three weeks
we have had the black list held
over us, like the Bword of Damocles
It was in form for a long time in
Mr. Radish's mind only, now we
bear it has taken a written form
and is in escrow in Mr. T. Li Sav-
itges'B safe, not to be called for until the men return to work and then
the union iB to have it and put the
screws on its pwn members.
Bernard McDonald came down
on the noon train today. There is
a rumor here that* a settlement will
be offered the men but nothing
definite is known.

THE BOER WAR
A Sensational Dispatch in
the London Sun.
HAS  BOTHA   SURRENDERED?
Statement That the Boer General
Has Decided to Ignore Kruger
and Stop the War-
London, June 21.—The sun this
afternoon again prints the sensational announcement which it
made June 18, that General Botha,
the Boer commander, after the receipt of President Kruge'r's decision
not to concede anything, decided
to ignore the former president of
the Transvaal and surrender.
The paper also states that it is
believed at the British foreign office that the formal surrender has
already occurred.

The  Canadian     Building
Formally Opened.
DESCRIPTION OF THE EXHIBIT
Said to Be the Handsomest Building
on the Grounds—"The Story of
the Great Northwest."
Buffalo, June 21.—The Canadian
building, which is claimed by many
to he the handsomest on the
grounds, has been formally opened
to the public.
It is Bituated at the east side of
the grounds, just off the Mall, in a
plot surrounded by flower beds, and
artistic shrubbery landscaping. Its
exterior is of Swiss style of architecture which is covered with vines
and plants. The ground floor is
devoted to a comprehensive agricultural exhibit, all the grains and
wheats of Canada being shown
either in glass caees.or else fashioned in quaint designs in the border
around tbe wall near the ceiling.
In the centre of this large hall is
mounted, under a glass case, a
monster stuffed buffalo owned by
the Canadian government.
An oil painting that attracts considerable attention is one by Paul
Wickson, a noted Canadian painter called "The Story of the Great
Northwest." It illustrates_the retreat of the red man with his pony,
his gun, and his tepee, before the
sturdy Scotch settler, with his agricultural implements, and his jdow
horses.   It is a masterpiece.
In addition to the agricultural
exhibition in its own building,
Canada has exhibits in the mines'
building, forestry, fine arts, live
stock, etc., etc.

WHO CONTROLS LE ROI?
The London papers to hand tell
in detail the interesting story of
the stormy British America Corporation meeting on the 3rd of June,
which ended in a vote in favor of
the voluntary liquidation of the
company. Since the meeting the
court has made an order directing
the compulsory liquidation of the
company under the court's direction and possibly some interesting evidence may be forthcoming
when the tangled accounts of the
defunct institution are taken up.
It will, however, most probably be
a long and tedious matter and by
the time the company is finally
wound up, we in British Columbia
will have lost all interest in the
proceedings.
During the meeting just mentioned Mr. Whitaker Wright spoke
in his own defense, asserting that
since the formation of the London
& (Jlobe, the B. A. O, and all the
other companies "I have not made
one solitary sovereign of profit in
any shape or form. Therefore I
court investigation. You cannot
give me too much of it."
Between the statement of the
chairman of the meeting and Mr.
Wright's address a history of the
formation of the B. A. C. arid the
subsidiary companies, consisting of
tlie Le Roi, Le Roi No. 2, Rossland
Great Western and the Kootenay
mines, was given but nothing that
the average Rosslander does not
know already was stated. The
properties owned by the subsidiary
companies are well known and the
other holdingB of the B. A. C. in
this camp and elsewhere in the
province which have never yet
been either developed or' floated oh
the London market, and which to-
' day remain vested in' the corporation, are also well known to all
mining men. But out of all the
stupid London entanglements, what
people would like to understand is,
who now controls thc four subsidiary companies? and, incidentally, who controls Mr. Bernard
Macdonald and his policy at the
moment?
To whom, for instance, could an
appeal be made in the Northport
matter?
There are a good many rather
simple people here who think that
possibly the genial general manager of the Lc Roi and allied companies, is not quite certain just
who controls both himself and the
valuable mines under his care and
keeping. But whether he knows
or not, everyone else in Rossland
would like some definite information on thc point, particularly
after perusing the account of
affairs in London as described by
the latest English papers.
BRITISH PESSIMISM.
Mr. Andrew Carnegie has been
trying to rai3e the drooping spirits
of the English and Scotch. He
says in an article on " British Pessimism" in the Ninteenth Century
and After" for this month : " For
thirty odd years the writer has
been visiting his native land, but
never to find such despondency
among his friends of thc industrial
world as this year." He proceeds
to analize thc causes which have
produced this pessimistic feeling,
and points out the futility of
comparing commercially, Great
Britain, with its limited area and
population, with America or even
Germany.
Mr. Carnegie goes into a mass of
figures and evolves some consola-
lation for the Britisher's troubled
mind. The object of the article,
however, is to get a drive at " Imperialism" as the writer understands
it. And he concludes that if the
imperial-idea finally prevails, England's future is gloomy indeed.
Very naturally his views have
been answered, and it is pointed
out that in future, where commercial comparisons are made, or
where statistics of population,
manufactures or territory aro stated
of the different nations of the world,
Great Britain must be included in
the Greater British Empire which
has arisen, and which Btands today
united against the rest of tho world.
If the bands, commercial and otherwise, which hold the mighty federation together are still more and
more tightly drawn, by wise and
timely legislation, Mr. Carnegie
and his adopted fellow-countrymen
who are just at present rather patronizing and suffering from expansion and swelled heads generally,
may yet see an empire with which
they will be only too glad to throw
in their lot, commercially.
EDITORIAL NOTES.
• Bouquets are seldom.thrown at
the Rossland Miner. The paper
does not need them as it runs a
flower garden of its own.—New'
Denver Ledge.
The Canadian Pacific railway
muBt have a weak defence in the
trackmen's case or they would
never issue the columns of telegraphic misrepresentations which
the morning paper accommodatingly publishes each day. The striking trackmen do not control any
telegraph company or newspapers
and they are handicapped just to
that extent in the struggle now in
progress.
The morning paper says it will
continue to drive away investors
by its agitation against the iniquitous mining laws of British
Columbia, notwithstanding the
strong protests it admits having received. The public should show
its appreciation in some practical
way.
Go to the fire sale if you want a cheap
suit of clothes. Everything at cost.

THEIR PLATFORM
Resolutions   Adopted   by
Western Federation.
MEMBERS SHOULD BE A UNIT
Chiefly Refers to United States Politics-What the Planks Are -
Must Keep Awake,
The political resolutions adopted
at the close of the recent convention at the Western Federation
of Miners at Denver, aro important. Although they chiefly refer
to United States politics, they will
be read with interest here. They
represent substantially the principles of labor generally, and may
be called labor's platform. In part
they are as follows:
"Realizing that great victories
are not won in a day and that, as
an inevitable consequence, time
iriUBt elapse before the conditions
portrayed can be brought about,
we submit the following for the immediate betterment of the present
deplorable condition of the pro-
.ducer:
No aUolbales.
"First—We are opposed to the
expansion of our national boundaries for the acquisition of territory populated by other than the
Caucasian race.
"Second—We are opposed to the
arbitrary interference by federal
authorities in local affairs, and we
especially object to government by
injunction as a new and highly
dangerous form of oppression, by
which federal judges, in contempt
of all laws, become at once legis
lator, judge antl executioner.
"Third—We view with .alarm the
evident design to increase the
standing army, aside from the enormous expense a large military
establishment imposes upon producers, who are the actual tax
payerB. We know from historic.^
facts that it is the chosen weapon
of tyrants, already a foe to individual rights and inconsistent with
free institutions. Therefore, we
.express the hope that members of
.organized labor everywhere will refrain from voluntary enlistment in
:any department of the federal or
-.state military service.
"Fourth—A graduated tax should
ibe levied on incomes and inheritance, and the property tax should
be levied on land values alone.
Banking tty.t.au.
"Fifth—Wc denounce the national banking system, as established
and maintained in the interests of
capital alone, and inimical to the
best interests of producers, and we
demand that the system beabolish-
■ed and a postal savings bank system be established instead. We
further demand that all gold, silver
and paper be issued by the government, direct to the people.
"Sixth—We believe a representative government is a failure, and
regard direct legislation and the
imperative mandate aB the first
tttep necessary to enforce legislative
reform, and we therefore demand
the initiative and referendum in
the making of all laws, national
and municipal, and demand the
abolition of the caucus and convention, urging the nomination of all
candidates, state and national, by
direct vote of the people.
"Seventh—We believe the member* of Organized labor should be a
unit on all matters affecting their
interests, and therefore suggest that
all political and economic questions be freely discussed at the
local meetings.
Puu'iio I.unals.
"Eighth—We also believe that
the public lands should be open
only to actual settlers, to the total
exclusion of all corporations and
speculators.
"—We view with alarm the possibilities of cheap labor that confronts us by reason of tlie expiration of the Chinese exclusion act,
and demand the re-enactment of a
Buitable law by the federal govern
ment that will remove all Asiatic
races from competition with the
American workmen and women,
and we urge organized labor to
spare no effort to have such a law
enacted.
"Tenth—Believing that a vigorous policy of organization is the
first step necessary to a realization
of the final fundamental principles
of organized labor, we earnestly
recommend thut renewed energy bo
infused into our future efforts in
carrying out a policy thut will result in the attainment of a thorough organization of wage earners
everywhere, to the end that cooperation will in the future be substituted for that policy of arraying
the workers against each other.
Must Keep Awake.
"Finally, we congratulate our
brother toilers on the progress
made in the past year, but warn

Sunday Observance Resolution—A  Committee
on Temperance.
The second synod of the diocese
of Kootenay completed its labors
at Nelson yesterday at the forenoon
session.
The bishop announced the consecration of the church at Grand
Forks on Tuesday of next week,
and stated that members of the
synod would bo made welcome at
Grand Forks upon that occasion.
On motion of Rev. H. Steele,
seconded by Dr. Westwood. it was
decided to appoint a committee on
temperance, anil the bishop appointed the following: Rev. W. A.
Bobbins, Rev. H. Steele, the archdeacon, Robert Wood, MessrB. Gray,
H. C. Hannington and Dr. West-
wood.
This motion on Sunday observance was moved by Rev. H. S.
Akehurui. seconded by Rev. H.
Beaeham:   That we, ths members
When thc real position is understood public sympathy will be
found entirely with the striking
trackmen. A fair day's pay for a
fair day's work is a principle that
has taken a strong hold throughout
tho length and breath of this Dominion, and whilst as a rule this
principle prevails in ail other occupations, so far the railroad trackmen have not been able to secure,
f
this much. The lowest rate of pay;
for unskilled labor in this Province
is from Si.75 to !f_.()0 per day, and
the sectionmen, whose work is by
no means unskilled, are not asking
too much when they insist upon a
minimum rate of $1.75 per day.
Whilst every move in connection
with the strike has been conducted
in the most admirable manner by
the men, a course is being pursued
by the company which cannot fail
to give rise to a great deal of ill
feeling. Men are being imported
from Seattlo to take the place of
the strikers and large numbers of
special constables are being posted
all along the line. This special
constable business is most extraordinary and calls for explanation
from the provincial authorities.
These specials are in no real
sense employed on police work.
They are engaged to watch the 0.
1*. railway in place of the Striken,
and this is work no union man,
and no man in sympathy with tlie
trackmen's commendable effort to
secure a living Wage,should engage
in. The fact that he goes through
the farce of being sworn in as 'a
special, and is in receipt of $2.50
per day from the taxpayers, does
not do away with the more important fact that he [is taking the part
of a railroad corporation against
men who are struggling for a fair
day's pay for a fair day's work.
If the company fear that damage
may be done to their property by
the strikers let them say so boldly,
and call upon the government to
provide necessary police protection
The company know there is nothing to fear from the men. They
must have watchmen, though, to
take the places of the strikers and
hence this resort to specials.
So far as, ciiuld'bb learned thiB
morning all the 0. P. R. trackmen
in this PeoVince have gone out on
strike. No word had been received
up to a late hour this  afternoon of

New York, June '21.—The health

with a view of prohibiting in New
