ALBANY  STRIKE
I
minous Threats of Violence Against Troops.
TWO CITIZENS ARE DEAD
No Cars Running Today-Officers
Regret Fatalities — Situation
This Afternoon Unchanged.
Albany,     May   17.—E.    Leroy
ith, tho promineut citizen  and
ub man who was shot by a squad
ihe 23rd regiment yesterday died
is morning shortly after  making
statement to his clergyman exonerating the guardsman from blame ,
tyr. Smith was HO years of ago  and
leaves a wife and three children.
Two prominent citizens dead, no
cars running and ominous threats
of violence if an attempt is made
today to contiuu. the armed cars
of yesterday is what Albany awoke
to this morning.
The beautiful weather male no
favorable impression on the peo
pie. Gloomy browed groups of
mon stood about tho street corners
and discussed the death of the two
inoffensive citizens. "Murder"
was the most frequent ttrtu used.
The gloom extends oven to the
soldiers and in the camp of the
23rd regiment very general regret
was expressed this morning .iver
the two deaths.
Major General Koe, Brigadier
General Oliver and General Barnes
while regretting it, said that tho
soldioi-s were ordered to stop mob
violence and shoot if attacked aud
the only safety for peaceable citizens was to move away the first
indications of disorder.
Up to 9 o'clock this morning no
effort had been made to move the
cars and there waa. no activity manifested. Tho company's line on
Clinton avenue has been cut again
and other breaks are reported
from different parts of the city.
Twenty-five non-uuion men who
were brought from New York to
join the rank of.the strikers, were
brought to the Quail Street barn
under a guard of a battalion of the
23rd regiment without any riot or
trouble.
Here is the strike situation at 6
o'clock this evening.
A delegation of strikers will
meet the executive committee of
board of directors of the United
Traction company. Both sides will
enter the conference in a friendly
spirit aud it is possible that there
will be a truce aud peace:. The
directors of the Traction company
were in session for three hours.
The chief difficulty that bars the
way to a settlement is the policy of
the company toward strikers for
violence. The strikers to a unit declare that if they,go back it will be
in a body while thc company objects
to re-employing men who have injured their property or assaulted
the new men.
A NEW YORK
MYSTERY
Body of a Well Known Clergyman
Discovered   Long   After
Death.
New York, May 17.—Tlie body of a
man found late last night in a house in
in Ninth avenue lias been identified
as that of the Rev. Dr. Edward S.
Phillips of St. Gabriel's church, Hazelton, Pa., who recently had a conference
with J. Pierpont Morgan in  reference to
the threatened strike in the iron and
coal regions of Pennsylvania. The police are working on the theory of rrurder.
Kirk Stanley, a massage operator in
whose rooms the body was found, is
under arrest as a suspicious person.
A great deal of lAystery surrounds the
case. Decomposition had advanced so
far when the body was discovered that
cureory examination was not sufficient
to reveal the cause of death and an
autopsy will be held.
Stanley was arraigned in the police
court and was remanded. He refused
to make any statement.
such an acute stage of bitterness that
the committee has decided to break off
all negotiations and to bar that boat
from the trial races, and from all other
events over which the New York Yacht
Club will have jurisdiction.

IS BOWED
WITH SORROW
The  President Greatly Concerned
Over His Wife's Condition
Today.
San Francisco, May 17.—Tho
life of Mrs. McKinley was still in
the balance at an early hbnr today
and the attending physician could
give no moro assuring information
than that her condition was unchanged. There had been some
improvement during the hours before midnight and watchers were
filled with hope, thoiigh fearful of
a relapse. Tho patient's vitality
is at its lowest ebb during the early
morning aud not until the critical
-tiijiftjgho^d pass could they offer
Any*w»rdp of cheer. Should thei-e
be no sinking spell today and the
slight gain of strength as noted
last night be maintained it was
considered possible that there
might be a gradual return of health.
However, the doctors would not
express* any stronger hope than
that Mrs. McKinley might recover
sufficiently to admit of her removal
to her home, and they did not declare this with any confidence.
At intervals Mrs. McKinley has
been conscious aud has recognized
her husband who has remained almost constantly at her bed side. He
is bowed with sorrow and his careworn expression is noticeable to
all.
Mrs. McKinley Very III.
San Francisco, May 17.--6:3.0 a.
m. No change has been reported
in Mrs. McKinley since 2 a. m.
when the attending physicians
gave out that she was in a critical
state.
The Latest Newa.
At 10:45 a. m. there was no
change since the bulletin was issued
at.S:45. Mrs, McKinley is holding
her own and the prospects are very
favorable for a continued improvement.

WAGES AND MANAGEMENT
In tbe current
Nortli American
series of articles
and      Railroad
number of tbe
Review are a
on "Industrial
Consolidation,"
thoroughly understands how vitally he is affected by bad mine management and over capitalization he
may be counted on to take a much
more lively interest in both ques-
tiDtis than he apparently does just
now.
wherein Russell Sage, James J.
Hill, C. M. Schawa and others
contribute chapters [on the
varying aspects of "trusts." Sage
thinks the movement a grave danger to the community, while the
railway king dilates upon the great
advantage the trust will be to the
public.
The articles are well worth carefully perusing by everyone who
desires light on the probable final
outcome of the movement. It is
one which is bound to affect the
community and no wage earner is
wise who does not try to follow the
logical working out of the industrial problem of the hour—a problem in which he and his class are
most vitally interested in.
It is with the views expressed by
James Logan, one of the writers
referred to, that special attention
is here directed. Referring to "The
outcome of unintelligent compel i
tion," the writer says:
"The question is often asked
'What effect will these conditions
have on the wages of the workman?' Many express fears that
they will operate to his disadvan-
tige I d > not share that feeling.
I believe they will eventually work
to his benefit. The fact is abundantly proved that firms managed
without system or intelligence usually pay the lowest wages. There
is a reason for this, which is not
hard to explain. They pay their
workmen the lowest wages and
produce inferior goods, sell their
goods at cut prices without regard
to cost, and in a large degree establish the price at which other
manufacturers, who pay better
wages and who make better goods,
are forced to sell theirs. Their
business, having been conducted
on a bad, or without any system,
at the close of the year may have
shown a loss or, at least, did not
show such a margin of profit as
they expected; and they could not
see their way clear to raise the
price. * * * The cost must be
reduced but how? Some costs are
definitely fixed. Those cannot lie
changed. Interest, insurance,
power, heat, light, taxes, etc.,
must be paid, and at the fixed rate.
Towering high above all these
items of cost stands the pay roll.
That must be cut down. the cut
is made and they start in once
more to carry on for another season the same abominable business
methods, and force other manufacturers, who want to pay good
wages, to cut down the pay of their
operatives in order to compete with
them. This ignorance iu the management reacts with mighty force
on the working men aud women in
the factory under present conditions."
It is true there is no competition
in mining as there is in manufacturing, but it requires no great
stretch of imagination to apply Mr.
Logan's reasoning to the effect of
bad management in mining and its
inevitable effect on the mine work
er. Bad management and over
capitalization are two of the chief
and the worst evils which have
cursed the mining industry of
British Columbia, and in the frantic
effort to overcome these evils a sys
tematic attempt is made over and
over again to cut the wages of the
worker by the executive heads of
the mining companies.
When then, the working miner
A STOCK BOOM.
It is to be most sincerely hoped,
that the activity and rise in the local stock market witnessed yesterday betokens better business days
for the camp. In the days to come
people will often doubtless refer to
l he jieriod when Centre Star, War
Eagle, Payne, Republic and other
milling stocks were going begging
at what will then appear to be
ridiculous prices, and will wonder
what possessed them that they did
not take advantage to the full of
the chance afforded by the then
current prices.
It must be clear to any cool
headeti thinking business man that
the prices of majiy mining stocks
which could be mentioned, cannot
long ,email) at the low ebb they
now are. With courage and sound
judgment even the small investor
should be able to make good money
iu Rossland during the present season which is just commencing.
Our people will be opening their
eyes before long in astonishment
at developments which should have
been patent to them long ago had
they thought out matters consistently.

EDITORIAL NOTES.
Mr. Kipling has written the following inscription for the memorial
that is being erected at Kimberley
to those who fell during the siege:
Tbis for a charge to our children, in Bi.n
of the price we paid.
The price we paid for freedom,  which
comes unsoiled to our hand.
Read, revere and uncover—here are the
victors laid,
They who died for the city, being- sins
ol the land.
The contingent which socialistic
New Zealand is sending to the
commonwealth celebrations in Australia is 160 strong; every man is
over six feet in height.
. The viceroy of India said recently on opening au Anglo-Oriental
college: "If British dominion in
India were exterminated tomorrow
and all visible traces of it wiped off
the face of the earth, I think its
noblest monument aud proudest
epitaph would be the policy which
it has adopted with respect to education."
A time card will have to be issued and scattered broadcast iu order to inform the outside world as

be transacted in Nelson. So far
two days have been tlisposed of,
namely, Sundays ancl Thursdays.
On Sundays only those who pray
should come to Nelson, and ou
Thursday only those who play.—

Sir:—Enclosed vou will find ihe pew
scale of wages of the White Cooks and
Waiters' Union, No. 124, W. L. U., of
Phoenix. They are thoroughly organized and have a very progressive and
efficient staff of officers. The new Beale
went into effect on last Monday. Should
some of the Mongolian advocates of Rossland come over here they will find it
very difficult to evade the necessity of
dispensing with the little red men and
employing white help in their slead. Jt
is curious that one ot Rossland's elite is
the only one who had the necessary
bull-headedncss t> run amuck of the
popular spirit iu endeavoring lo initiate
the Chinese in household work.
Yours, &c,
Lucas.
