A WATER FAMINE IN SIGHT
Temperature Is Stifling and Water
Supply Is Waning—Country Is
Seriously  Alarmed*
London, July.—The heat totlay
is exceeding all previous records of
tlie season. The entire absence
of any* breeze adds from 10 to 15
degrees to the .S7 degrees recorded
liy the official thermometer, and
indications point to a further increase of the stilling   temperature.
At Bisley the shooting contests
continue in the sun at a temperature of 142 degrees.
The prolonged drougth over the
conntry threatens to he the
most serious yet experienced. The
water supply of Manchester is already shut off from three at night
until five in the morning and the
streets in thc city will no longer
lie watered after this week.
Similar Conditions are threatened in other localities and many
factories are closing in conseque-
quence of the exhausting of their
reservoirs.

it is fearetl that a coal famine in

has found railroads and the dealers unprepared with scant provisions against the future, and prices
arc expected to amount up within a
week if no settlement is reached
before that time.
inquiry in tbe coal trade yesterday showed that railroads and
dealers are carrying no more than
lwo we_ks supply of coal.

Many Men Obtaining Work  Elsewhere—Macdonald Succeeds
Devine,
There is every indication that
the strike situation is settling
down to a long foughtout battle
between the mine managers and
organized labor.
Last evening the miners union
held their regular weekly meeting
and were obliged to adjourn from
the lodge room to the ball,so large
was the attendance.
A very large number of new men
have joined the ranks of the
union during the past week.
I'. It. McDonald was elected recording secretary in the place of
James Devine resigned.
The union passed a hearty vote
of thanks to Thomas Brownlee for
his generous offer to the striking
miners of the free use of his billiard hall and bowling alley during the  strike.
The latest news from Northport
today confirms the statement published yesterday of the damage
done the furnaces and plant gen
erally by the unskilled laborers at
the smelter.
It was reported this morning
that the diamond drill working at
the War Kagle broke down last
night anil that no further attempt
would he made to proceed with the
work   for  the  present.     ■ -
A great many miners have already left town and have been abk
to obtain work elsewhere.
Assistant Manuger Thompson of
the Le Roi is leaving for the east
shortly.

The fire last night started in ths
working room occupied by Miss
Pretty, milliner, iu rear of the Columbia avenue store.
The proprietoress did not leave
the place until about 0:31) pm..,
and there was 110 oue on the premises when the tire broke out at 8:30.
It is supposed that the stove,
which had been going all day
caused the trouble. The building
is owned by Mr. Barnett, of Col-
ville, and is well insured. The
millinery stock was fully insured
in the Phoenix, of England. Outside of the work room where the
fire started the chief damage was
done by smoke and water.

NOT ABLE TO PAY.
People, who have been pondering over the published figures concerning tho fan Roi Mining company an officially set out hy Sec-
retary Labouchere in tho London
papers, seem to think that Manager Bernard Macdonald will have
a good deal of dilliculy in squaring many of his former statements
ahout the mines to the men here.
It will he remembered that the
manager pleaded wi th the men
some fifteen months ago, that while
the management earnestly desired
to pay the increased wage asked for,
it was quite impossible to do
so, and exactly the same plea- is
raised today. Taking the Le Koi
mine as a sample, and comparing Mr
Macdonald's plea, with Secretary
Labouchere's figures how is it
possible to imply good faith to the
manager?
The secretary's assertions are
based—so he states—on Manager
Macdonald's official reports and
Mr. Labouchere nays:
1.—That on the first of
July there was over £4,000,000
($20,000,000) worth of ore in sight
in tlie i.e Roi mine.
2—That the cost of working is
well within 60 per cent so that the
remaining 40 per cent, is clear
profit.
*i—That this -lOpercent. amounts
to -£1,600,000,  (118,000,000).
■I—That the mine and smelter
are now equipped with machinery
wi'frth about £51111,1)01) ($2,500,-
000.)
5—Thnt the smelter could shortly treat 1500 tons daily anil that
$7 ore could bo shortly treated at
a profit.
"i—That the value of the ore has
been about £2.12s. "but then as
1 have told you we have been treating low grade stuff."
The ligures given a te official,
based on Mr. Macdonald's report
to the company, How Ihen, run
any one, taking the manager's reiterated statements here that the
mines could not stand the modest
increase of 50 cents per day asked
for by the shovelers and carmen,
and pay expenses, ami the secretary's figures as published, credit
Mr. Macdonald was acting in good
faith with the men ?
Will the manager kindly give
the public a reasonable explanation
of his position—past and present
—iu regard In lhe figures quoted,
and the inability of lhe I.e Km
company in pay.
man, while deprecating a strike at
this time, must admit that the
Rossland carmen and shovelers
are not asking anything that is
either  unfair   or   unreasonable.—
Nelson Tribune.
  •
A question has been raise \ as to
the nationality of the members of
the executive board of the union
and of the officials of the Miners'
Union. It may surprise some people to learn that of the live mem-'
hers forming the executive board,
four are British subjects and one is
nn American, of the four good and
loyal subjects of the King, three
are Canadians and one hails from
ihe Isle of Man. The Miners'
Union officials number Seven, and
live of these are British subjects
and two are citizens of the United
States. Not a bad showing for ''a
band of foreign agitators." Incidentally both Bernard Macdonald
and Edmund B. Kirby are strictly
''foreigners."
The provincial government, it
seems, have not yet secured one of
the lots necessary for the new
school building, yet they are requested to start construction.right
away. Will Mayor Lalonde kindly
tell the ratepayers how the matter
really stands ?

NOTES AM) COMMENTS.
The Rossland Miner has a light
nn ils hands lhal is not In ils liking. The president nf the Board
nf Tradi- calls it down fnr grossly
misrepresenting lhe attitude nf the
board on the difficulty thai now
exists between Managers Macdonald and Kirby and lhe Miners'
Union; lhe hewsboys will nol sell
it on the streets or deliver it to subscribers; and   lhe   merchants   are
withdrawing    their     advertising
patronage,   All  nf  which   makes
the manager uf the Miner sick. No
newspaper in the province has
been so foolishly  virulent  against
the government, the mining laws,
the Unions, ami individuals; ami
no newspaper has so little justification for such foolish virulence.
—Nelson Tribune.
A few months ago it was an
nounoed by the directors of the Lo
Roi company in London that they
were earning a profit of SSg per
cent, on their capital of £1,()00,()0().
This means a profit of £333,333, (is,
Sil based on the theiiVxistin grat \if
mucker's wages of $'2..rii). Now
supposing the be Roi company
were to pay this extra 60 cents,
what would be the result? Assuming that in this mine 200 men
would participate in the advance
it ligures out $100 or roughly
speaking i.20 per day OrJEGOOO per
annum, sn that the net profits
would lie £327,333, lis, 8d "or 32,73
percent. The English shareholders
would lose according to these ligures
exactly three-fifths of one per cent,
or $N.O;; dividend per share,instead
of $8.18.
What has Mr. Macdonald got tu

Mike (tindotti, president of the
Rossland     NewsboyB   union   has
banded in to the World the following statement for publication.
Rossland, 17 July, 1901.
The statement made in the
Rossland Miner of Tuesday last
that the wtrike of the Rossland
newsboys against the Rossland
Daily Miner was brought about
by James Wilks, the Rossland
Milters union, or any member or
members thereof is untrue. No
one suggested a strike to tbe Newsboys union. We took the matter
up on our own nccount and called
a meeting to decide what we would
do last Saturday night and on a
vote we all agreed to refuse to
handle the paper in any shape or
form. I told the editor of the
Rossland Miner that we had de
cided to refuse to sell or handle the
Miner because of the stand the
paper took against all organized
labor and that we were in sympathy with the miners and carpenters.

To thc Citizens andmBusiness Men of Rossland and Vicinity and to the General Public i
The business and social interests of a cdinniiiriity are so closely interwoven in a community like Rossland, that any disput^'ariiong the industrial elements forming the social
structure, is often more disastrous to the'business or non-combattant 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 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 ihe two industrial forces, and worse in'that there is
no apparent end to be seen. f .       .
We have given long and careful consideration to this matter and have reached the
conclusion that the foundation of the trouble rests on the fact that nearly one-half of the
employees in the mines ot this comrrjunity receive about 20 per cent less wages than the
same class of labor in surrounding camps, many of which £amps have a lower grade of ore
and are less favorably situated than Rossjand. 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 6f 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, althought of
unquestioned ability in their trade. j
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 Hood the overcrowded 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 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.
