Tragic Death  of  an Old
Pioneer Prospector.
THE METHOD OF DESTRUCTION
Blew His Head to Pieces—Did Not
Want to Trouble His Friends
Any Longer.
An old prospector named G. H.
Andrews of Nelson, a Scotch-Canadian, hailing from New Brunswick, 72 years of age, committed
suicide last Saturday morning in
a horrible way.
He wrote three letters to Mayor
Fletcher last week all of which
have been subsequently found
among the dead man's effects, and
one of which read as follows:
"Oct. 1, Nelson, B. C.
"To explain the manner that I
intend to use to put myself out of
the way bo that there will be no
need of an inquest. I will state
that I intend to use three sticks of
giant powder placed on the top of
my head, with a couple of flat
stones on top of same, a hope it
will make a good job.
"G. H. Andrews."
Andrews had been living with the
family of Mrs. J. Stewart for the
past two yearB, and when he disappeared on Friday last Mrs. Stewart notified the police and a search
was commenced for the missing
man.
The body of Andrews was found
about 11 o'clock on Saturday
morning on some unoccupied land
at the east end of Houston
street.
The body lay up against an im-
ence boulder on the edge of the
bluff, overlooking Cottonwood valley and the city, with every yesti-
gate oj the head gone, it having
been blown to atoms. A box of
detonators and a coil of fuse lay on
the ground nearby, while a short
piece of fuse on the chest showed
how he had arranged the dynamite with a cap in the end and attached the fuse and then leaning
back evidently touched a match to
the fuse, and in a few seconds all
was over.
Some years ago Andrews Btaked
the Goodenough claim on Morning mountain and ever since has
worked hard on it, developing it to
the best of his ability while his
strength lasted. Three years ago'
he had a severe attack of la grippe,
which had left him very liable to
cold. For the last two years he
had stayed wilh the Stewarts to
whom he bequeathed the claim
and two silver dollars, all that he
possessed. Evidently with the
approach of winter, feeling his
helplessness and dependence, he
committed the deed that ended his
troubles.
His tragic death caused quite
a shock among the old-timers of
Nelson by all of whom he had been
well known and respected. A subscription was quietly taken up and
plot at the cemetery purchased for
him and arrangements were made
for a respectable funeral, which
took place yesterday afternoon at
2.30. A number of flowers were
sent by Mayor Fletcher and other
old timers.

TWO GUN-CARRYING SCABS
Fortunate They Were Not Union
Members.
AN EARLY LITTLE PICNIC IN TOWN
Should Stay Up on the Hill and Not Mix with Decent
Folk-How Justice Is Tempered with Mercy
-to Scabs.
Within a fortnight one of the
scab outfit "on the hill" was arrested and run in. This scab was
brought before His Worship Police
Magistrate Boultbee, and it was
shewn that he carried a loaded five
shooter when arrested.
Was this peace-maker sent to
Nelson?
Was he fined?
Did Mr. Daly wire Viotoria for
leave to represent the crown
against this dangerous gentleman?
Did the Rossland Miner demand that the local Rifle company
should be forthwith called out to
protect innocent citizchs from gun-
carrying scabs?
What happened?
Why just this. The offender
against the Blake Act simply lost
his gun and was sent "up the hill"
a free man.
Shortly after midnight yesterday morning two more of these
peace-loving gentlemen who have
been swept in here from "outside"
indulged in gun play.
Did the Rossland Miner hear of
it?
DicUstook broking "merchants"
rush into print and call high Heaven to witness the depravity of the
scab element let loose on Rossland
society?.
William L. Preston and Henry
Williams—the two scabs referred
to—were each fined $30 and their
little gunB were added to the city's
collections.
Suppose a dreadful union man
had been found with a gun, would
ever have heard the end of it.
Would there have been an extra
extra Miner out?
Would Hon. Mr. Daly have been
retained?
Would three years have been
thought Buflieient under the revolting circumstances?
Would the "bracelets" have
been u_ed?
What has the scab element ever
done for Rossland or Rossland
people that they should become a
favorite class outside of Barney and
his journal?
ARE ALL THE

Peace Loving Missourians
at Northport-Two
Assaults.
The people of Northport are a
trifle sick of peaceful missourian
scabs.
Yesterday Tom Toner a union
emclterman was assaulted on his
way home after dark by threo of
the peace makers but stood hiB
ground till help arrived and the
scabs were driven off.
About 8 o'clock last night Justin
Baird was knocked down and kiok-
ed into insensibility and then relieved of his money. It was over
three hourB before Baird recovered
sufficiently to tell what happened
him.
Northport people are naturally
indignant over the attacks and if
the parties can be identified it will
go hard with them.
Both furnaces went cold last
night and it was 11 a. m. today
before they got started again.
The Supreiaie Court.
Mr. Justice Walkem has an
nounced that he will take the
supremo court sittings here. The
judge will not arrive here until
Wednesday night, and court will
open Thursday in place 01 tomorrow morning.

Victoria, Oct. 7.—Hon. Richard
McBride distinctly denies that he

IT IS NOT
CORRECT
No Break Thought of in

Buyers.
Mr. Bratnober is credited with
haying told the Spokesman that
a number ot union men had returned to work.
ThiB is absolutely untrue. Outside
of Frank French no union man is
at work today.
The scabs are said to be "cash
purchasers" of goods. Here is a
specimen of the only current cash
seen by city merchants so far:
"Please give bearer the following goods (list set out) and charge
the same to my account.

COMMUNICATION.
Editor Evening Would.
Sir:—According to yesterday's
Morning Miner a strike was called
on the new school house now under
erection. If the Morning Miner
would publish a little more official
news in place of street rumors it
would probably have some weight
with the public
A committee was appointed to
wait on Mr. Dunlop, and after investigation it was found that he
had sent in his resignation as architect and inspector of the school
house. The strike, therofore,
which was talked of, of course,
could not be called. The Carpenters' Union have no quarrel
whatever with Mr. French, the
contractor.

Dunsmuir Is Sure of 22
Supporters.
NO  SPECIAL  SESSION   NOW
Curtis and McBride Will Lead Opposition — How the Members
Stand—The Situation.
Victoria, Oct. 7.—Premiur Duns-
muir states that he will not resign,
and it is generally believed that he
has made concessions to the wing
of his supporters that have remained true to him aa bead of the
government. This wing willl be
given the two vacant portfolio!.
By taking thiB eourse, Dunsmuir
can rely on the support of Martin
and at least three of his followers.
These, together with Mounce, Diok-
ie, Pooley, Hall, Booth, A, W.
Smith, Hunter: Ellison. Rogers,
Fulton, Kidd, Taylor, Green,
Eberts,Wells and Prentice wilfgive
him a working majority, notwithstanding the defection of McBride,
Helmcken, McPhillips, Hayward,
Murphy, Tatlow, and Garden.
Tkese seven will have Curtis, E.
C. Smith, Hawthornthwaite, Oliver, Gifford, and Munroe as coadjutors. Gilmour iB classed as an independent and the government
side believe they can win the
vacant seat in Victoria" This arrangement may last the life of the
presnt house, as the majority of
the members know the people are
heartily siok of elections. Mo-
Bride and Curtis will lead the opposition.

MR. KRUGER
IS FAILING
The Boer Leader Is Growing Weaker Mentally
and Physically.
The Hague, Oct. 7.—A. D. W.
Wolmarens, one of the Boer leaders, who has boen visiting Mr.
Kruger, found the mental condition of the former president of
the Transvaal to be by no means
satisfactory.
Mr. Kruger is slowly growing
weaker, physically and mentally.
HiB slowness in reaching a decision
on important questions is found to
be a serious hindrance to those
working in Europe in behalf of the
Boer cause. At the slight., t
question regarding his health Mr.
Kruger exhibits intense irritation,
and vehemently denies that anything is wrong. The approaoh of
winter causes anxiety, as Mr.
Kruger refuses to leave Holland.
According to a remark made by
a prominent Boer, the former president's condition would long sinco
have been much worse if hatred
of Great Britain did not nerve him
to conliue.

PUBLIC OPINION.
At the present time it seems hard
to grasp the position in which the
printers on the Toronto Globe
found themselves in 1872.
The men asked for a nine hour
day, were refused and because they
called a strike, some 17 of them
were arrested and put behind the
bars to stand their trial at the
assizes as "conspirators."
When the facts were understood
by the public a great outcry arose
that there should be such a law on
the statute books of Canada. Sir
John Macdonald was then at the
head of affairs in this country and
as parliament was in session at
the time, he, in deference to public
opinion, rushed an act through the
house exempting trades unions
from the conspiracy act, and the
imprisoned printers were set free
and never brought to trial.
Further, the nine-hour day was
granted by the Globe to its employees.
Probably the Hon. George Brown
regretted his foolish act of appealing to the law to crush the life
out of trade unions and it is safe to
Bay that at the present time the
managers of the Globe would not
resort to such a measure even if
they could, but there are still some
people who believe that the workingman Bhould be treated with the
utmost rigor of the law if he should
unfortunately be induced, at trying
periods to step over the proscribed
line, and when occasion offers, these
same people use their influence to
the utmost to keep what they are
pleased to term "tho laborer in his
place."
Looking back over the Colistro-
Beamish incident does any one
seriously doubt that a monetary
fine and a warning would not have
better satisfied the justice of the
case than the punishment inflicted?
Neither the police magistrate
nor the county court judge who
disposed of the appeal, appear to
have considered that neither
Colistro or Beamish were in any
way connected with the criminal
class of the country, had each of
them a good moral record and that
the incident in question was the
first one in which any disorder
whatever had occured in a mining
town like Rossland, where a bitter
struggle had been in progress for
weeks.
It is safe to say if an non-partisan counsel had represented the
Crown as public prosecutor in place
of the standing solicitor for the Le
Roi company no such sentence as
was inflicted would ever have been
given.
People who did not know Colistro personally and who had no
particular admiration for Tom
Beamish and some of hiB methods,
are quick to recognize that their
own rights, are likely to be infringed if the matter is allowed to go
unquestioned, and tho subsequent
proceedings engineered by the chief
of police has made it clear that a
strong protest is necessary.'
Largely for the reaBon given, the
petition for executive clemency in
the case of both the imprisoned
men is being largely signed by all
classes of tho community. It is a
gross insult to thoBe who sign the
petition, to say that they are enemies of law and order, or that
they are animated by any other desire than that the rigor of the law
should be abated to meet the jus
lice of the case.
The latest news from Victoria
goes to show that the surmise made
by the Would last week, as to the
probable outcome of tho political
situation in this province was correct.
Premier Dunsmuir says he will
meet the legislature early in the
year with twenty two followers in
a house of thirty-eight members.
He will not call a special session,
and when the house meets, he will
endeavor to carry on the bus inoss
of the province with his present
following.
It was rumored during the
past week that D. M. Eberts would
be called upon to form a cabinet,
but it seems that this calamity at
least has been averted and unless
something happens to change the
program, the provincial house will
meet as usual.
Under any circumstances a redistribution measure will now be
passed before an appeal is made to
the electors, if one becomes nec-
esssary.
There is but little satisfaction
to be got out of the situation but
at least we are spared the bother
and unrest of a general election
for the present.

THE:
Real Situation.
Rossland, B. C, Sept. 5th, 1901.
To the Citizens and Business Men of Rossland and Vicinity and to the General Public:
The Le Roi mine manager has been circulating a report that the strike here is practically at an end and the mines are about to resume. This report has been taken up by their
organ, the Morning Miner, and sent out over the country as a true report of the situation in
Rossland. We have made a careful analysis of the situation here and believe that no impartial reader can see much reason for the joyful enthusiasm which Mr. Bernard Macdonald
and his paper profess to feel.
For three and one-half months the strike has been jn force at Northport. The greatest claim Macdonald or Kadish have ever made during that time is that they have been
able to operate two of the five furnaces at the smelter. It is only a question of simple arithmetic to see that if it takes three and one-half months to start two furnaces, it will take
eight and three-fourths months before they can have the smelter in operation. Now, if it
takes eight and three fourths months to the 500 men necessary to start the smelter
it will take twice that many, or seventeen and one-half months, to secure 1000 men for the
mines in Rossland. Or, at the end of twenty-six and one-half months, if Macdonald has the
same success he claims to have had thus far at the smelter, he will be in a position to work
the mines.
No one can deny or dispute that Bernard Macdonald has left no stone unturned to
secure men for the smelter at Northport. He has cast his drag net over the states of Minnesota, Colorado, California, Oregon, Missouri, Montana, or, practically, over the entire
country west of the Mississippi river, and has been able to start but two of the five furnaces
at the Northport smelter. This is the success he boasts. He claims the strike is at an end.
It has only begun.
So far we have taken as true his statements that he has two furnaces in operation at
Northport. We wished to prove how futile are his statements by his own evidence.
The real truth is he has never had two furnaces in successful operation at one time for 24
hours. They have produced no matte for shipment up till August 25. He claims to have
shipped one carload on August 21. That it was the highest in value of any shipment made.
The records of the railroad at Northport fail to show, any trace of matte shipments on
or about August 21, If any shipment was made it was via the Columbia river route and
rests at the bottom of the river.
He also claims to be able to start the mines in Rossland. Apparently he does not
realize there is an alien act in Canada, for of the 30 employes now at the mines all but two
have been brought here in direct violation of this law and will be deported inside of two
weeks. He has in eight weeks been able to secure but two scabs in Canada. Nowa if the
Canadian people should, to his surprise, enforce their laws, even if it does hurt the feelings
of Bernard Macdonald, how long will it take to start the mines at the ratio of two every
eight weeks?   And as yet there is not a miner in the lot.
We are not deceiving the miners of Rossland by false promises. We hope for an
honorable settlement of the difficulties here. The sooner the better it will suit the union
miners of Rossland. But if it is necessary to continue this fight to its final end the union
miners and smeltermen will stand shoulder to shoulder for carrying on the fight.
This war was forced on these unions. We entered the struggle full of a belief in the
justice of our cause and confident of our ability to carry it successfully to an end. This belief has never been shaken for an instant, and certainly is not when we consider the almost
unbroken line of successes which have thus far attended our efforts.

The Man That Clapped the Darbies Onto Beamish
To the tune ol "The Man That Broke the Bank at Monte Carlo."
I've just returned from Nelson.   Spread the joyful news around,
That your Chief is safe and sound, without either scar or wound,
And I've won another medal and a bet of bottles round.
Tiiough a desperato encounter I have had,
And I've burst my straight-front corset rather bad.
But I've lodged the desperado safe behind the prison wall,
And I'm here before yon all, waiting wine and duty's call.
My fame is blazoned far and wide,
And tho scabs all point to me with pride,
As the min tha', "clapped tho darbioi" on to Biamish.
I've tussled with tho Zulu and I've fought on Egypt's shore;
But I'd Booner face a war, than a doBeof Beamish "jaw."
For his lashing and tongue-thrashing would have made me awful sore,
But so skilfully I parried blow and thrust.
T'was in doing so my Guinea corset bust.
Then I rose in wrathful dignity when nearing Neleon town,
With my stern ollicial frown, beat the hardenod villian down:
And he lies in solitary state, a tribute to the prowess great,
Of tho man that clapped the darbies on to Beamish.
I've hurried baok to Rossland. I was anxious how you fared.
And I'm ready to be dared, when my corsets get repaired:
But I don't expect a challenge for "I've got 'em good and scared,"
And the striking mob is nearly dead with fright.
Just watch them at the depot every night.
How they turn their tail, and cringe and quail beneath my eagle glance
(Though I drink when I've a chance for I'm trembling in my pants.)
Oh! you bet that crime and whiskey fly
When'ere they meet the mouth or eye
Of the man that "clapped the .darbies" on to Beamish,
But too much fame's embarrassing, I daily find it so
With the ladicB as I go, my official rounds you know.
"None but the brave deserve the fair" is true enough, although
Between ourselves allow me to remark,
That personally, I prefer them dark.
They vow that I'm too modest, that my light I shouldn't hide,
And they call me "Rossland Pride" with some pretty names beside;
Till I "dunno" really where I are"
And I wouldn't be the Russian Czar,
But'the man that "clapped the darbies" on to Beamish.
Cittoyong swoyay trangkeel!   Rest calm in the belief
That the mob will come to grief when they run against your ohief
And as for scabs that carry guns, I'll capture every thief.
Especially the brute that shoots to kill.
I'll deport him with an escort—up the hill
And I'll fight the villian striker till my latest dying gasp,
Just a medal's all I ask, (let the ladies give a clasp);
And when death dims my eagle eye,
You'll raise a monument on high,
For the man that that "clapped the darbies on to Beamish."

Sir.—I am afraid Barney has
the big head bad. He seems to
think he constitutes the whole
population of Canada and the
United States. (Pity no one else
does.) I worked in the Frisco
mine nine months during scab
time. I know they tried non
union labor, but found it a dead-
beat. They then issued permits to
union men to train them and let
them work ninety days, when they
took their permits away. When
asked why, Edmonson, permit
man, gave them to understand it
waB to give them money to leave
the country. • If the manager was
so well pleased with scab labor,
why did he get mad, get his gun.
threaten to shoot everyone and
publicly declare he would rather
have six union men than a whole
drove of Bcabs. They employed
one-third more men than during
union time, kept them all on ore1,
did very little development work
and then could not keep the mill
running. Their timber gang was
twice as large. In the shaft they
had two different contracts and
sank fifteen feet in one month. By
putting on three union men—one
on each shift—there was fifteen
feet sunk the first week. There
were more than twice the number
of boBses. The scabs formed what
is known as the Industrial union
and Mr. Trouble Maker was at its
head. Now gentlemen, let them
dig the eyes of the Le Roi out,
the company's property will be
valueless and where are the business men and property owners of
this town going to get off at?
Would-be union smashers will do
anything to further their own end,
but it is only necessary to go back
over their past career to make it
plain they never did any good for
their companies nor country. The
condition of the Coeur d' Alenes
during martial law was such that
respectable woman could not
go through the streets without
hearing some insulting remark and
and most indecent language.
Many left because the stench was
so strong, they feared a plague,
Principally tho business of Wallace is done at the freight depot,
handling merchandise from Chicago firms. I am sorry poor Barney had to bother himBelf to write
to Wallace for information, there
are 'plenty here who could have
enlightened him in good shape.
I would myBelf for "four bottles of
wino." Barney knows Mr. Trouble
Maker well, true, when finding
himself out of business, he took
passage for non-union parts, where
the principal population are
Siwash. If the Canadian law was
correctly enforced last Friday
thero would be one more Mr.
Trouble Maker in exile, and Mr.
Beamish and Mr. Colisto would be
free, There is just as much truth
in that Wallace hoodo letter as in
Barney's Rossland Miner. Per-
hapB Barney's Wallace correspondent could give some information on
those mysterious crimes committed
