Morrison & Bryenton
Tlie Mine Managers association
have applied to the Dominion government for relief from "the offensive and obnoxious" legislation
under which, they say, they are
now suffering.
Appended is their summing up
of their grievances:
"1. Eight Hour law, the effect
of which has heen to increase the
cost of underground labor by about
16 pcr cent whicb was passed by
the provincial government during
the last two days of a session,without any previous notice to the general public, the mine managers or
the miners themselves.
"2. Severe struggles between
capital and labor originating
through the Eight Hour huw.
These struggles accompanying the
decline of the industy have changed the former friendly relations to
class antagonism, which leads to
incessant urging of class legislation
dangerous to the industry and
communities dependent thereon.
".'!. Extension "f the Eight
Hour law to certain surface employes.
"•I. Unreasonable demands b)
the provincial government for information concerning private business for alleged statistical purposes.
"5. Unwise technical provisions
in Mines Inspection act, one in-
slame nf which is the new code   of
signals for shaft hoisting. This
unnecessary interference wilh the
most delicate and dangerous technical operation of mining was not
asked for by anyone or justified on
any grounds, and was framed by
parlies not practically acquainted
wilh mining. It endangers life
and restricts the hoisting capacity
of mines ami   was  passed  against

the official protest of the association.
"IS. The steady increase of taxation and lhe continued urging of
oppresive legislation so that mining capital is kept in constant apprehension and uncertainty as to
further burdens.
''7. The provincial "Master and
Servant act," which practically
prohibits the employment of labor
in any other province, notwithstanding the fact that labor for a
new and unpopulated province
must come from elsewhere.
"8. The Dominion "Alien act,"
prohibiting the engagement of labor in the United States, notwithstanding the fact thai Canada has
only a small supply of skilled
miners, and that the men r quired
for developing the mining industry
therefore must come mainly from
the mining regions of the United
States."

Ex-Governor Mackintosh has a
lengthy interview in the Vancouver
Province, upon the Rossland situation. Included in the statement
is a long letter to the Rossland
Board of Trade, which was presumably read at the initial
meetiilg of (bat body two weeks
ago. In this letter, the governor
says:
"1 am convinced that before adopting any extreme measures we
should exhaust every honorable
method of bringing both parties to
this contention together."
Mr. Mackintosh when asked
whether be thought the strike
would lasl any length of time replied: "Undoubtedly, unless immediate steps are taken to restore
harmony. The loss sustained by
corporations cannot be fully estimated, should my opinion be correct. Machinery rusting, shafts
flooding and general deterioration
of the mining paraphernalia, must
be the inevitable result. A small
advance to ore sorters would be a
mere trifle compared with the financial shrinkage of properties really
callable nf producing immense
bodies of oro. Added to this, the
camp will lose its best miners,
men who from experience know
how lo sort and work tbe ore lo advantage. I therefore consider that
self-interest, let alone the question
of fair play, should dictate a compromise and with that compromise
an agreement between the contracting parlies that any settlement arrived at should be permanent for a term of years at least."

<-____ON
A LOST OPPORTUNITY.
At tbe commencermnt of this
century Bernard Macdonald, general manager in Hossland of the
Le Roi group of mines, apparently
occupied a very enviable position
among the mining men of the
world. He was practically in sole
charge of what are believed to be
four rich mines—one, the Le Roi,
was just in a position to show to
the world what aproperly equipped
property in this section of British
Columbia could earn for its fortunate shareholders, its real capabilities while known to the general
manager were after all only hinted
at to those on the outside of the
inner circle. Le Roi No. 2, and the
Rossland Great Western had passed the experimental stage, and as
later events showed,the former had
passed into the dividend earning
class on January 1st, while the
latter, like the two mentioned, was
a well equipped and well developed
property. The Kootenay mine
alone stood somewhat in the Shadow,
hut even hero, according to the
manager's report, the mine was
fast reaching tbe paying point and
a return of greater or less value
was confidently expected during
the year just commencing. In addition tho smelter improvements
at Northport were nearly finished
und lo the onlooker it certainly
seemed as if "Mac" had struck
luck for the mines, the camp, and
himself.
Mr. Macdonald was certainly
"monarch of all he surveyed" and
very literally, "his right there was
none to dispute." Of theold B. A. C.
combination, which caused \V. A.
Carlyle some worry, there was
practically nothing lefl if we except Mr. Durant, and tbe manager
at the time mentioned, knew very
well of this gentleman's early retirement, lu the ollice and in the
mines here as well as al the smelter
at Northport, Mr. Macdonald was
supreme in every real sense of lhe
word. The dreary season of preparation was nearly over.theminea
were well developed ahead of :ill
necessary shipping work, and nothing remained but to cart out the
ore and run up dividend after dividend.
It goes without saying that nothing succeeds like success, and the
manager seemed on the threshold
of making a great name for himself and the camp all over tho
mining world. Under these exceptionally favorable circumstances, what mill-summer madness then seized tbis capable manager? What turned him from
running a straight and honorable
course? Must we believe that
with the prospect he had then in
view he, of his own free will
deliberately set lo work to wilfully
antagonize the whole of the western
labor organization set this community by tbe ears and close down
the smelter and the mines under
his direct 00111111111111? It is true
that amongst working miners who
knew Mr. .Macdonald's previous
record, his reputation when he
came here was that of a man who,
for one cause or another, bad invariably caused ructions wherever
he had charge—and his strong
anti-union views were perfectly
well known, but it was thought
that under such favorable circumstances as prevailed in this camp,
even Barney, would work wilh, and
not against the workers.
The iiurchase or lease of the
Rossland Miner, Ihe famous announcement to the Northport smelter men that they must abandon
their union if they wanted employ
ment, the urging on of the union
men in tbe mines here and all Mr.
Macdonald's offioial acts since January last have completely bewildered his friends and foes alike.
The manager knows—no one
better—what a record and a name
he stood to win, and the manager
knows—no one better—what will
be the cost—to him—of failure in
bis battle against organized labor.
The Rossland Miner or a subsidized
press in England won't save him.
People don't approve of costly
failures, and stockholders have a
grim way at times, of turning down
a manager, however useful, whose
dividends are disipated in attempting to coerce the labor element or
some other equally insane move.
The manager must issue many
more manifestoes before he can
convince any thinking onlooker
that he and those immediately behind him in the struggle he has initiated are in any sense acting in
good faith with the public, and all
the three classes named who are
already suffering from tho unwise
action taken, stand more than
ready to execrate the real author
of their woes when he stands a
little more disclosed. It is an infamous thing that a community
such as Rossland has grown to be,
should be wrecked, and the name
of every honest miner in the camp
trailed in the mud, because of the
overpowering desire to grasp everything in sight of an unscrupulous
manager and his stock jobbing allies.

In the Boundary the Cascade
Record has ceased publication and
the editor has gone farming. This
shows wisdom, as there are too
many fanners trying to shove the
pen instead of the plow. In Greenwood the Miner has sold out to the
Times, whicb shows horse sense,
when a town cannot BUpport two
papers. In Nelson the sheriff has
turned the blue on the Miner and
its future is unknown.—New Denver Ledge.
The mine managers are truly
modest men in their appeal to the
Dominion    government. They
merely suggest that tho customs
law he abolished—so far as they
are concerned—that the eight-hour
law he repealed. That no information concerning their ''private
business" be asked for. That they
be allowed to run the mines as
they see tit and without the payment of any taxes, and finally they
demand tin-abolition of that foolish
master and servant act, and the
equally foolish and unpatriotic
"Alien Act." They would—they
will ask inure when they get their
breath again, but the present modest request is all they will stand
for at thi' moment.

CANADA  SHOWED  TH:   WAY
A Description of the Race Between
the Argonaut,   Winnipeg  and
Vesper  Crews.
In the regatta at Philadelphia
last week C. S. Titus of the Union
Boat chili waa burred for the final
heat in the association single senilis
and it was a loss up for either
Marsh of Toronto or Johnstone
of Winnipeg, they admittedly
heing the next and beat men with
Titus out of the way. To the
credit of the Canadians be it said
that they absolutely refused to row
unless Titus was also permitted to
row in the heat, and by consent
this was finally done and Titus
won the race. Toronto and Win-
nipeg,although they lost the trophy,
acted in the matter like true
Canadian sportsmen and every
one will approve of their conduct.
In the great eight oared race
the winning Argonaut crew was
composed of:
CE.A. Goldman, bow; J. N. Mackenzie, 2; A. H. E. Kent, 8; R. II.
Parmenter,4; J. C. Mason, ,r>; H. V.
Duggan, 6; D. It. Mackenzie, 7;
Joseph Wright, stroke; N. Bastedo,
coxswain.
The Globe gives the following
account of the race:
The Vespers caught the water
first in the senior eight-oared race,
aud with a snappy 38 stroke forged
slightly ahead. Rowing together
iu smooth style and keeping up
ths fast stroke, the Vespers could
not leave the Argonauts, who were
putting in only 36 strokes to the
minute. The pace was too fast for
the Winnipegs, and they fell a
length behind at the quarter, at
which jioint the Vespers and the
Argonauts were still lighting for
the lead. The Quakers could not
maintain their fast stroke and
dropped back to 35, while the
Argonauts with their long body
swing and steady 86 Btroke, slowly
but surely moved the nose of their
boat further in front of the champions. At half a mile the Argonauts were half a length in front of
the Vespers, while the other Canadian crew was plugging along
two lengths behind. Going under
the bridge at half distance the
Argonauts pulled away until there
was nearly a boat's length of open
water between them and the Vespers. Then the Winnipegs became a factor. They came up so
rapidly that they were on even
terms with the Vespers at Peter's
Inland. It was not the old Vespers, and strain at the oars as they
would, they could not hold even
the slower of the Canadian crews.
The tierce struggle for second place
between the Vespers and Winnipegs forced the latter crew closer
to the Argonauts at every stroke.
All three crews spurted in the last
furlong, hut in the final rush tlie
Argonauts held their own and
crossed the line a length and a
quarter in front of the Winnipegs,
while there was a streak of open
water between tlie Winnipegs and
Vespers.

Rossland, B. C, July nth, 1901.
To the Citizens and Business 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 dispute among the industrial elements forming the socia I
structure, is often more disastrous to the business or non-combattant class around which
the labor and capital elements revolv'e, 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 corporations of Rossland and Rossland 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 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 rests on the Tact that nearly one-half of the
employees in the mines ot this community receive about 20 per cent less wages than the
same class of labor in surrounding camps, many o'f which camps have a lower grade of ore
and arc less favorably situated than Rossland. We believe that it is to continue to enforce
this unjust scale of wages that so many annoying 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.
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 lo:,s
of members compelled to seek employment in other fields.
Third.—By connection with bogus employment agencies seeking to flood the over-
j crowded labor market with cheap foreign labor.
Finally.—By the largest corporation in this vicinity openly seeking and striving to
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 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 |
he general public of this city.
Especially we ask your aid in maintaining 6rder, 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.
