Queenslown, July 12.—The Cork
Examiner tod it y prints a sensational story of the miraculous escape of a passenger steamer westward hound from heing wrecked off
the Fastnet rocks at 8 p. in. yesterday.
Thc Examiner says tho fog lifted
in the nick of time to save tho ves-
sal from a fearful disaster.
The light house keepers at Fast-
net were horrified to see a steamer
from the east running full on thc
little Fastnet 400 yards southeast.
They immediately discharged the
alarm gun signalling urgent danger.
Before the liner could ho slowed
up or her engines roveresd she had
apparently reached thc little Fast-
net rocks she was seen to list to
starhoard and then to port.
BThe onlookers noticed a momentary scene of great excitement on
board thc liner, but she was apparently uninjured as she proceeded.

MINISTERS
IN ENGLAND
Fielding, Blair, Mills, Do-
bell and Fisher Have
Done Good Work.
New York, July 12.—The informal Canadian conference in
London in virtually at an end says
tlie Tribune's London correspondent. Sir Henry Davis has sailed
for Ganada and Mr. Fisher the
minister of agriculture will follow
him next week. Ministers Fielding, Blair and Dobell will return
about August and Mr. David Mills,
the minister of justice in course
of time.
Mr. Mills has been more active
than his _olleagues since he has
been in consultation with tlie colonial office respecting an imperial
court of appeals, and Mr. Fisher
has also had official work with the
results of the visit of the Canadian
ministers which will be important.
Mr. Mills has clearly presented
the Canadian view of the institution of an imperial court of appeals and his colleagues have
united in a chorus of satisfaction
over the existing relations between
tlie Dominion and the Mother
Country.
They have received much hospitality and have fully enjoyed their
holiday in London after a protracted session of work in Canada,
it is probable that an equally important Canadian delegation will
be present at the coronation next
year.

L.iiit evening the Salvation Army
gave a grand national parade.
Very many of tlie nations of the
world were represented by soldiers
who wore their native costume and
either testified or sang in their own
dialects concerning the wonderful
effects of the gospel upon the life
of the various peoples. More than
1000 people listened to the services
and expressed their feeling of satisfaction with the effort. Capt.
Southall is to be congratulated on
the success of the affair and for the
excellent manner in which she
represented our own Canada.
The War Eagle and Centre Star
mines were closed down this morning at 7 o'clock, all tho men union
and non-union promptly coming
out on time.
As in the case of the Le Roi
mines yesterday, tlie executive
board of the union gave permission
to the pumpmen, firemen and engineers on main shafts to remain
on duty in order to prevent injury
from being done to the mines, if
necessary these men also can be
brought at any time when ordered.
There was no disturbance of any
kind yesterday or today either
about the mines or on the streets.
Many of the miners congregated
in groups in front of Miners' Union
hall or along Columbia avenue and
the strike' continued to be the all
absorbing topic of conversation in
Rossland.
Quite a number of miners went
out on the train last night and today looking for work elsewhere but
as yet there has been no general exodus.
The execuiive board of the union
were busy all day and during the
afternoon had a lengthy conference
witli tlie special Beard of Trade
committee on the situation generally.
At a meeting of the Carpenters'
and Joiners' Union last night il
was unanimously decided to call
out all carpenters in the employ of
the mining companies involved
with the Miners' Union.
The Homestake, iron Mask,
Spitzee,I. X. L. New St. Elmo and
Big Four are all working as usual
and with the exception of the Iron
Mask have granted tin- extra pay
asked for the shoveli-rs and car
men by the union. A favorable
reply from the Iron Mask is looked
for shortly.*
In all, about 1000 men have gone
out here and the four Le Hoi mines
the War Eagle and the Centre Star
are closed up as tight as the proverbial drum.
The managers have contended
themselves with appearing before
the Hossland Hoard of Trade—
of which they an- both members,
last evening and stating their
views there and in addition
issuing a comparatively mild
statement of tin- situation in their
newspaper, the Hossland Daily
Miner.
All ore shipments have stopped
as the men promptly joined the
strikers and in consequonoe the
copper furnace at Trail was at
once closed down and unless there
is a settlement the whole smelter
plant will probably be closed.
There no particular news from
Northport today, the strike in
progress here overshadowing the
situation at the smelter town. The
union men are simply awaiting the
result of the strike here.
We have this evening received a
large shipment of Strawberries.
Call and see them.    Paulson Bros.

The Daily Mail, whose correspondent was the first to make the news

It professes to have abundant
evidence that almost the whole
theatre of war is in a much' *wo1Hp

in Cape Colony in particular is
said to be of a most serious nature due almost entirely lo tin: belief among the Dutch that the

THE STR IKK.
Tbe close-down of the War Eagle
and Centre Star mines this morning was the inevitable outcome of
yesterday's situation since Mr.
Kirby has always been in perfect
accord with Manager Macdonald's
announced policy. The non-union
men in all of the six big mines
promptly followed the lead of the
union men, effectually disposing of
the untruthful statement so industriously proclaimed by the managers that a little band of union
conspirators and agitators were the
only ones engaged  in  the conflict.
The men, union and non-union,
are now united against Messrs.
Macdonald and Kirby upon an
issue that is perfectly clear.
The union has been forced to
fight for its very existence and
knowing that very well may be
counted upon to contest the life
or death struggle to a finish.
It has never been denied for a
moment that the now famous declaration of Superintendent Kadish
to the smelter men when ho first
met them after the close down "for
repairs" was untrue or that the
smelter manager said, or meant
some thing different than what he
was charged with saying.
President Shed, of the North-
port union, over his own signature
in the Rossland press,accuscd Bela
Kadish of stating openly to the
men: "We are determined to
break up the union at all cost. If
you want work you must abandon
your union." Bernard Macdonald
has never attempted to say:
First—That Kadish was in any
way misrepresented.
Second—That he was not officially
authorised to say what he did.
Third—That the breaking up of
the Smeltermen's Union was not
part of his avowed policy, to be
commenced at Northport and ended
here, among thc mine workers of
Hossland, when tho proper time arrived.
Everyone remembers Mr. Macdonald's frank answer to the
Spokesman's reporter at Spokane.
He was asked: "The smeltermen
charge that you are trying to break
up their union. is it true that
you would re-employ union men
and permit them to retain their
membership if they would come
back to work with the exception of
the 25 men whom the company has
named?" To which Mr. Macdonald replied. "If I were tu
answer 'yes' 1 fear the men would
say that they do not believe me. If
I were to answer 'no' they would
say 'I told you so.'"
One may admire the bravery
of Manager Macdonald in thus
openly challenging the whole labor
organization of the west but the issue cannot be changed by saying
in a letter to the press later on that
"I have no quarrel with the union."
Mr. Macdonald is far too shrewd
a man not to have instantly set the
public right, if he could honestly
have done so, upon the true issue
at Northport but when President
Shed's statement containing the
famous Bela Kadish declaration
was shown to tlie manager, his only comment was "Yes, I have read
it and you may state I am content
to leave the matter as Mr. Shed
putB it." The facts being as
stated who will deny the true issue so far as Northport is concerned?
CAPABLE MANAGEMENT.
Referring to.the profitsdistributed
from the mining industry in British
Columbia during 1900 as set out in
the last report of the minister of
mines the London Financial News
of June 24thc, says editorially in a
review of the report:
"The total amount is said to
have reached $10,070,000, but unfortunately, very little of these
profits found their way to this side.
But that is the fault of those who
were responsible for the introduction of so many ventures which
have failed through mismanagement or over capitalisation, or both
together, to fulfil the promises
made for them, than of the industry
of the province, which has in it all
the elements of permanent prosperity if only the interests of the
investors engaged in it be safeguarded by capable and honest
management."
No one will accuse the Financial
News of having a labor leaning, yet
this journal squarely asserts that
the chief cause why the mines here
have not made a better return to
investors has been over capitalisation and the want of capable and
honest management!
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
At a conspiracy trial held in
England, the prosecuting counsel
gave the following definition of a
scab: "A scab is to his trade what
a traitor is to his country, and
though both, may be useful! in
troublesome times, they are detested by all when peace returns, si
when help is needed a scab is the
last to contribute assistance and
the first to grasp a benefit he never
labored to procure. He cares only
for himself; he sees not beyond the
extent of a day, and for a momentary approbation he would betray
iriends, family and country; in
short, he is a traitor on a small
scale, who first sells the journeyman, and is himself afterwards
sold in his turn by his employer,
until at last he is despised by both
and deserted by all. Ho is an
enemy to himself, to the present
age, and to all posterity."
Compulsory arbitration is the
one remedy that will prevent bull-
headed mine managers, like Macdonald and Kirby of Rossland,
from ruining a community.—Nel
son Tribune.
Tho Rossland Board of Trade
held a special meeting last night
and will hold another meeting this
evening. This afternoon the union
committee met representatives of
the Board of Trade and the results
of the conference will be slated at
the meeting this evening. Messrs.
Macdonald and Kirby were boll
present at last night's meeting and
although the press were excluded
every one knows exactly what took
place. So long as tlie Board of
Trade confines its efforts strictly
to mediation between the contend
ing parties in the strike no newspaper Comments are either neces
sary or advisable.

families, we beg to announce thatjwe will
trust them to all the goods they may
need during the strike and will wait for the pay

the amount of ore in sight at that
time was approximately 1,050,000

A PLAIN STATEMENT.
aaUl.
The Facts of the Case as Presented by the Executive Committee of Rossland Miners' Union,
No. 38, W. F. M.
Rossland, B. C, July 12th, 1901.
To lhe -Citizens and Business Men of RosslunJ and Vicinity and to the General Public .-
Tlie business and social interests of a community are so closely interwoven in a* community like Rossland, that any dispute'among the industrial elements forming the social
structure, is often more disastrous to the business or non-eomhattant class around which
the labor and capital elements revolve, than 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 deems it well to make a careful statement of all the reasons
leading us to precipitate this industrial strife at this time. Since the agreement between the
big corportatiojis of Rossland and Rossland Miners'Union-in April, 1900, this city has apparently enjoyed industrial peace ; yet all whp are conversant with the industrial 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 sr.en.
We have given long and careful consideration to this matter and have reached the
conclusion that the foundation of tha trouble rests on the -fact that nearly one-half of the
employees in the mines ot this confmunity 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 Rowland. We believe that it i» to continue to enforce
this unjust scale of wages that so many annoying practices have been introduced to undermine the prestige of this Miners' Unioapf Rossland.
First.—An annoying system of espionfige and blacklisting by which many of our
ablest members have been compelled to.seek employment in other localities, althought of
unquestioned ability in their trade.
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 us by the last half of Article 15 of
the agreement of April, 1900; thus preventing us from refilling our ranks depleted by loss
of members compelled to seek employment in Other fields.
Third.-—By connection with bogus employment agencies seeking to flood the overcrowded labor market with cheap foreign labor.
Finally.—By the largest corporation in this vicinity openly seeking and striving   t
crush a sister union at Northport, Wash.
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 satis-
factorialy 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.
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, and all the assistance of the Western Federation of
Miners.
We have right on our side and must surely win.

ROSSLAND MINERS' UNION No. 38, W. F. M
