Greenwood, Oct. 23.—The first

and the City of Greenwood, welcomed his Lordship, Mr. Justice
Irving, and expressed pleasure that
the first sitting of the supreme
court in Gceenwood should be presided over by a judge who waa so
closely-identified with the interests
of the province.
His Lordship thanked the bar
for their kind expressions, said he
was favorably impressed with
Boundary district.
There were but two criminal

true bills in both. One went to
the trial jury, and the defendant
was acquitted. The other, the
Murphy cattle-maiming case is
still being heard.

THE OUTLOOK IS GLOOMY
There Is Fierce Public Indignation in London.
MR. KRUGER S HISTORIC PLEDGE
War Has Cost $700,000,000 and 18,000 Lives-Minis-
- tersAre Doing Nothing or Worse-War
Feeling in England.
London, Oct. 23.—In any country whose constitutional traditions
were less deeply rooted than Britain's what is now transpiring here
would be a certain prelude to revolution. Evidences are accumulating on all hands of a great wave
of public alarm at the incalcuable
danger of the empire arising from
the paralysis which has overtaken
England in her attempt to subdue
or exterminate the Boers.
There is fieroe public indignation
at the inconceivable levity and ignorance with which the enterprise
was begun and the criminal stupidity with which it has been conducted. The opening of tbe third
year's campaign is signalized by
the publication in both the jingo
and the anti-war press of retrospects of the government's war, the
record fully justifying the gloomiest apprehension*. .
It was first estimated that the
cost of the war would be 150,000,-
000, with a field force of 47,000
men, which parliament was assur
ed would complete the conquest of
the republics in three months.
Today, when. prospect of conquest was never less certain, it has
cost »700,000,000, besides 18,000
lives' the aggregate of casualties
being 75,000. Since Lord Roberts
declared the war over, on the eve
of the general election last September, it has cost $350,0O0'0O0 in
money, .8000 lives and 27,000 other
casualties.
Paul Kruger's historic pledge to
the world that the price England
would have to pay would stager
humanitv is now on everybody's
lips. It was jeered at when originally published in the newspapers, but at the height of this present supreme crisis the public is
dismayed by the intemperate, undisciplined outburst against critics
by Genetal Buller, demonstrating
the demoralization which has been
produced in? *he army by the
stress of this ignominious campaign. Meantime the ministers
are doing nothing—or worse.

Chicago Federation of Labor Will Aid the Strikers' Cause.
Chicago, Oct. 23.—The Chicago
federation of labor tonight enlisted
in the cause of the Allis-Chalmers
machinist strikers and decided to
fight Judge Kohlsaat's injunction
through the courts. The federation also decided not only to secure
able lawyers for the legal struggle,
but to begin a crusade against federal judges whose actions they resent. The speakers were bitter in
their denunciations.
It was decided to request every
Illinois congressman and both senators to petition congress to curtail the powers of the federal
judges.
President Roosevelt will also be
asked to employ a paragraph in
his message to congress.

A Oharge of Murder.
Montreal, Oct. 23.—The coroner's jury this morning returned
a verdict of murder against George

an aggravated assault on Zeotique

which caused the latter's death
yesterday. Bissonette will now
have to stand trial on a charge of
murder.
THE INJUNCTION
What the Le Roi Company
Really Wants.
NO PERSUASION TO BE ALLOWED
Application Will Be Made at Greenwood Tomorrow to Continue Injunction Already Obtained.
The Le Roi company wants protection, and wants it very badly.
An application will be made before
Mr. Justice Irving at the Greenwood assizes tomorrow to continue
the injunction already obtained by
the company at Nelson.
The company asks that the
Miners' Union be restrained from
"watching or besetting, or causing
to be watched or beset the C. P. R.
station at Rossland, and stations,
tracks and crossing of said railway
in British Columbiaor the stations,
tracks or crossings of the Columbia

the approaches thereto, or the
places of residence, or any place
where they may happen to be, of
any workmen employed by, or
proposing to work for^ieftlaintiffs,
for the purpose of persuading or
otherwise preventing persons from
working for the plaintiffs, and
from procuring any persons who
have or may enter into contracts
with, the plaintiffs to commit a-
breach of said contract, and to
restrain libel and for the costs of
this injunction."
HOW HE DOES IT.
Chinaman Take,  a  Bath   Without  Removing Any of HI. Garment..
A Chinaman taking his bath on
the back porch of a house where
he worked attracted a small knot
of curious and interested onlookers
yesterday. His method was so
different from the one in use among
occidentals that it caused considerable comment. He had a basin of
hot water and a sponge and after
washing his face in an orthodox
manner he took the sponge in his
right hand and ran it up the left
sleeve of his loosed blouse and evidently washed that arm and shoulder. The other arm was treated in
the same manner and then the
sponge was inserted between the
neckband and the body, and the
chest washed. He completed his
bath from head to ankle and dried
himself with a towel without removing a   garment.—Nelson Min-

HOW IT IS DONE.
Canadians who have experienced
Dubarry's energetic deportation
work at Buffalo, and who have
witnessed how swiftly the American agents send back imported
Canadians across the international
line, cannot understand the want
of action by the Dominion government in the ca_e of the imported
Missourians in the mines here.
The matter has become of such
frequent occurrence in the United
States as to excite no comment.
One of the latest cases is reported
in the last issue of the Canadian
Freeman, published at Kingston,
Ontario.
The Freeman says:
"Seventy-five Canadians were
imported from Ottawa to work at
the pulp mill at Battle Island,near
Fulton, N. Y. They crossed into
the United States at Ogdensburg.
United States Commissioner Baker
will deport the men back to Canada at once."
Our own law is practioally a
copy of the the United States statute. The only difference is in the
mode of administration. In the
United States the law • ia carried
out.   In Canada it is not.
contentions of the company on the
one hand and tbe union on the
other. As it is, the mine management has resorted with more or
less success to trickery to cover up
the real issue and has stooped to
petty meanesses in dealing with its
employes that it never would have
dared to use before an arbitration
court.
If British Columbia people are
wise and do not wish the recurrence of strikes and lockouts such
as this camp is now experiencing,
they will insist on candidates for
the legislature agreeing to support
a plan of arbitration to be
placed upon the statute books
of the province at the earliest opportunity.
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
The London county council has
expressed agreement with the principle of the establishment of fair
rent courts in London and a hill
upon the subject will be drafted.
ARBITRATION.
There seems to be an unreasonably strong opposition amongst the
mining companies of this camp to
the arbitration plan of settling
labor disputes.
When President Shed of the
Northport union was endeavoring
at the very outset of the struggle
to prevent further mischief, he and
the executive committee willingly
offered to submit the whole matter
then in dispute between the union
and the Le Roi Smelting company
to a board of arbitration, but the
Le Roi management announced
that they had nothing to arbitrate
about, although they had made
veryseriouB charges against the
union employes and had announced that the men must leave the
union if they wanted employment.
No one now believes that the
story of the persecuted foreman at
Northport, originally put forward
as a reason for seeking the breaking up of the union, was true or
was any thing else than a specious
pretext.
The Le Roi company at every
step in the present fight has adopted the flimsiest excuses for its
actions, witness the rise and fall of
Mr. Geiser for a sample. Had the
company as well as the the union
been compelled' to go before a
court of arbitration and prove the
contentions they have both raised,
how long would the present difficulty have lasted?
All over this continent the idea
of arbitration, enforced or otherwise, as a means of preventing
just such occurrences as Rossland
is today experiencing,is fasttaking
hold of the people,
The old idea of crushing out unionism by main force and by the
application of unjust laws—Bernard Macdonald's favorite policy
—has still supporters in some
quarters but generally such a
plan is discredited by all managers
with modern views.
If the matters involved in the.
Rossland strike had been submitted
to arbitration in the first instance,
we would have had no cessation of
work at the mines and the business
affairs of this community would
have gone on in thc usual way.
We would all have had a chance
of learning the real   truth of the,
The latest War Office casualty
statement shows that the total
number of deaths in South Africa
from the beginning of the war to
the end of last September has been
17,472—824 officers and 16,648
men. Adding the missing, prisoners, and invalids sent home who
have either died or left the service
as unfit, the total reduction of the
forces in South Africa has been
22,289. No less than 37,470 officers
and men were invalided home, but
have in the majority of cases recovered and rejoined for duty. The
total casualty list is 75,562.

Tbere is nothing like Asthmalene.
It brings instant relief, even in the
worst caeee. It cures when all «lse fails.
The Rev. 0. F. WELLS, of Villa
Ridge, 111., sayB: "Your trial botjle ol
Asthmalene received in good condition.
I cannot tell you how thankful I feel
for lhe good derived from It. I was a
slave, cbained with putrid sore thrott
and Asthma for ten years. I despaired
ot evt>r being cured. I saw your advertisement for tbe cure of this dreadful
and tormenting disease, Asthma, and
thought you had overspoken yourselves,
but rerolved to give it a trial. To my
astonishment, the trial acted like a
charm,   Bend me a full size bottle."
The evidence taken on the trial
in London of Dr. Krause for high
treason discloses the fact that immediately on Lord Roberts' entry
into Johannesburg Dr. Krause was
selected as one of the prominent
inhabitants of Johannesburg to
ride on trains entering and leaving
the town to prevent their being
wrecked, and had unsuccessfully
pleaded bad health as an excuse.
From thiB it appears that the'
practioe was not first established
by Lord Kitchener on the Pietors- j
burg line, as has been supposed by
Prof. Westlake and other adverse
English critics.

]30th street, New York, I at once obtained a bottle of Asthmalene. My Wife
commenced taking it about the first of November. I very soon noticed a radical
improvement. After using one bottle her Asthma has disappeared and she is entirely free from all symtoms. I feel that I can consistently recommend the medicine to all who are afflicted with this distressing disease.

To the Citizens and Business Men of Rossland and Vicinity and to the General Public 1
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 in force at Northport. The greatest claim Macdonald or Kadish have ever made during that time is that they have been
iable 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 secure the 500 men necessary to start the smelter
Jt 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 lhas 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 ftis 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 ot 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. Now, 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.

AMERICAN
APPOINTED
Babcock of California Appointed Fish Commissioner for B. C.
Victoria, Oct. 23.—The appointment of John P. Bahcock, late
chief deputy for the fish commissioners of California, as fish com-
inmiBsioner for British Columbia,
is likely to cause serious friction
between the Dominion and provincial governments. At the time the
appointment was contemplated,
the attorney general, Hon. D. M.
Eberts, wired to Ottawa, asking
the sanction of the minister there
to tbe step. He received a note of
semi-approval, but with it a letter
opposing the appointment, on the
ground that Babcock is an American, and that by reason of his new
oflice and powers, he may be able
to work some harm lo the fisheries
here. The leading fear seems to
be that he would allow American
fisherm en to obtain ova from the
salmon sprawninggrounds of this
province. The writer citeB Ash-
down Green and others of local
fame as piscatorial experts, as all
the counsel whioh the local government requires.
The province, on the other hand,
resents the implied interference,
and Hon. D. M. Eberts, the attorney general, indicates that there
will be no recalling from the position taken by him. "I expect Mr.
Babcock to arrive in the morning,
overland, from San Franoisco," he
said, "and he will undertake his duties at once. We have a three year
agreement with him, and he is going to stay, depend on tbat."

LIPTON TO
TRY AGAIN
Will Challenge Again Next
Year with a New
Boat.
New York, Oct. 23.—Sir Thomas
Lipton, in an interview last night,
Baid:
"I am going straight back lo
England to consult with Watson
und Fife as to designing a new
boat. I shall challenge again next
year and I think it wiae to do so
with a new boat. I shall send
notifications to the New York Yacht
club in the regular way when I
have consulted with Watson and
Fife. Beyond doubt the new boat
will be a 90 footer, although she
may not carry as much sail as
Shamrock. 1 have not .decided,
who shall build the new boat, but
I think the Dennys did well with
Shamrock II. and should be given
another try."
