AT NORTHPORT
Manager Macdonald's Version Denied.
MEN'S VIEW OF THE CASE
The President of the Stneltermen's
Union  on the Situation—Who
the "'Agitators" Really Are*
Special to the World.
Northport, Wash May 27.—B.
R. Shed, president of the Mill and
Smeltormen's uuion haa given out
tho following statement:
"I have read very carefully the
account given yesterday hy Bernard Macdonal, the general manager of the Le Roi smelter, purporting to be a statement of the
facts which have led np to the
present lockout and strike here.
Sper-k.iig for the union I say
most emphatically that we never
attempted to dictate to the company who should or who should
not be retained as foreman of lhe
smelter.
I, alone was called upon by Mr.
KadiHh relating to the trouble with
the obnoxious foremau aud all that
Kadish asked me to do was to use
my influence to prevent further
trouble with the men and this 1
agreed to do.
There never was any secret
meeting of the union called or
held to make arrangements to run
the foreman out. Nor has the
union ever coinplaiued to the company about him.
The foreman iu question made
himself so obuoxious generally
that quite apart from anything to
do with lhe smelter tho citizens of
Noi-thport would like to have seen
him go, but there was no organized
attempt to use force by the union"
or anyone else.
The man who is chiefly responsible for the alleged talk about
violence is a specially paid employe
of the smelter company for the
purp jse, and he alone, is the one to
blame, not tho union or uuion
men.
It is absolutely untrue to state
"that Mr. Kadish called up the uuion officers and pointed out the
serionsness of their position in case
the contemplated violence be as
carried out'' or that "the union
declared against lhe policy of the
company as announced." .
The union were entirely in lhe dark
as to the case of the closing down
but subsequent events have disclosed very clearly that the smelter company wore simply looking
for a pretext, and seized upon the
foreman question to carry out their
policy.
The union's whole claim is that
the Smelter company without cause,
is deliberately and most unfairly
dencriminating against the union
men and what the latter ask is
that they have tho same right of
obtaining employment as they
have always obtained. 1 repoa ttha
what was I told "that if wo would
leave the union we would bo employed but not otherwise" in proof
of our contention.
The "agitators" referred to by
Mr. Macdonald and the. Miner are
men Who have re-iided with their
.wives and families in Northport
for tho past three years.
All the men, with the exception
of some seven or eight including
tho oflice staff, are out.
seven more victims have been
added to the list of those perishing
in last Friday's gale. This fact
became known today when a water
logged, dismasted hulk, all that
remained of a schooner, was sighted 10 -miles of shore, between Sheboygan and Milwaukee. Beyond
doubt it is the three masted
schooner C. H. Hackley of this
city.
The Hackley was manned by
Captain Oertling aud a crew of six

A FATAL
ACCIDENT
Havilock Gillan Dies from Injuries
Received in the Nickle Plate
Mine Today-
About 8 o'clock this morning
Havilock Gillan, a miner working
iu the Nickel plate mine was fatally injured and after being removed
to the hospital died there about
noon without recovering consciousness.
Gillan wont down to the 800-foot
level with a load of steel and presumably put tho steel off at the
station and give the signal 3 1 lo
raise the cage. The engineer
brought the cage no but it only
held the overturned car used hy
Gillan in taking down the steel.
Suspecting trouble two of the men
went to the 800-foot Btation and
l.hore found Gillan lying in an unconscious condition. The injured
man was at once taken to the surface and conveyed to the Sister's
hospital. Br. Kenning who attended him says that his injuries
must have been internal, as beyond
some scalp wounds aud bruises
about tho chest there was nothing
visible .0 cause death. Gillan
never regained his senses and died
about noon.
It was stated at the company's
oflice that as no other miner could
be found who had given the signal
for the raising of the cage that
Gillan must have [done so and in
some way got caught between the
roof of the station and the ascending cage and was crushed and
thrown back to the floor of the
station where he was found, Gillan
was a fine young follow of about
25 years of age and came hero
from Wyne Harbor, Gay shoro Co.,

THE CHINESE
COMMISSION
Evidence of J. B.   McArthur, Hon.
Smith Curtis,  M. P. P., and
Others Taken Today.
The royal commission to enquire
into Chinese and Japanese immigration into British Columbia was
in session in this city this morning
in Miners' Union hall.
The commissioners are: Messrs.
R. C. Clute, K. C, of Toronto,
chairman; D. J. Mtinii of New
Westminster; Chris Foley of Rossland; Secretary F. J. Deane of
Kamloops, and Alex H. Crawford,
stenographer, of Toronto. Chas.
Wilson, K. C, of Vancouver, is
also present representing the provincial governmeut.
J. B. McArthur was the first
witness called and all the morning
session was occupied in taking his
evidence.
In the afternoon the commission
sat at the city hall and Hon. Smith
Curtis, M. P. P., testified. He alluded to the difficulty in obtaining
domestic servants in the west aud
also some kinds of manual laborers.
Mr. Curtis was strongly against
the employment of Chinese or Japanese labor wherever white men
could be got to do the work. He
advocated the adoption of the New
Zealand plan for arbitration iu fixing a schedule of minimum wages
for all workers. He thought by
this means Chinese and Japanese
labor would be gradually done
away with.
The commission will continue
thtir sessions tomorrow morning
and expect to leave; the camp for
Nelson in the evening.

Seven  More Victims.
Chicago, May 27.—A special to
the Tribune from  Milwaukee says
Chinese Indemnity.
Pekin, May 27.—It seems probable that Great Britain's proposition ^limiting the iudumuily lo
be demanded lrom Chiun
to 450,000,000 taols |will be
agreed to by tho end of the week.
United States Special Commissioner Rockhill thinks this may be
considered an American victory.
Through his proposition limiting
the indemnity of three hundred
and ten million was not accepted,
still it w.ts the cause of the other
powers considering the idea. The
only point likely to cause f.rlher
delay In a decision by all the powers except America is that regarding the rai°ing of the foreign customs five per cent. Mr. Rockhill
told the ministers at a recentmeeting
that rather than tako this step
America woule dolinquish alljclaims
of indemnity and even make a
money present to China, as American commercial interests would
Buffer far more thereby than those
of any other power, with possibly
one exception,
Rossland's handsome new iffSO,-
000 court house, the linest of its
size in the province, was formally
opened this afternoon by Hon. Mr.
Justice Martin. The local bar attended in full force and thero were
a large number of ladiej iu the
court room. Tho gallery was reserved for tho general public and
was well filled. Among the spectators were the members of the
Chinese commission now in session
hero Including Charles Wilson K. •
0, of Vancouver.
The presiding Judge was attired
in his full robes of ollice aud Slier-
ill' Tuck of Nelson in his official
costume proceeded tho learned
judge into the court room. Hon.
T. Mayne I>aly,K. C presented a
sbort address ,' from the f. members of the bar in honor of tho
happy event and the court made a
lifting reply concluding by declaring the court house formally, open
for business. An inspection of the
interior of the building followed,
everyone being delighted with the
accommodation afforded by the
new building which is a credit to
to the damn' and I the Koootenays.
Tho court will commence tho
sitting for the trial of cases to-
monow   morning.

A GttANCE FOR PEACE.
Mr. Foley, Mr. Clute and Mr.
Curtis are all here and if the contending parties at Northport are
willing we believe these gentlemen
could settle thia "tempest in a tea
pot" very quickly. They would
at least be able to elicit the true
facts of the case so that the public
may know who is responsible for
any future trouble.
We believe that the union men
at Northport will be only too glad
to make known their version ol the
affair to such au independent board
of arbitrators.' Is Mr. Macdonald
willing?
CHINESE COMMISSION.
The royal commission appointed
by the Dominion government to
enquire into the Chinese immigration in British Columbia is now in
session at the Miners' Union hall,
it being impossible to obtain the
court house. As the commissioners do not expect to remain in
Rossland longer than tomorrow it
is to be hoped that all those who
desire to put their views on record
concerning the Chinese question
wil! make a point ol attending the
session held here and giving their
evidence promptly.
RUMORS.
and   "nunounced  the   company's
policy' as alleged.
5—That the sole and only cause oi
omplaint now mada by the  union
is, that union men are unfairly discriminated against in the matter of
getting employment.
Everyone who recalls his schoolboy days will remember how often
it happened that "difficulties"
arising between the boys were
best settled by the boys themselves
without the interference of the
masters. This would seem to have
been the situation at Northport,
and under ordinary circumstances
it woulfl never have reached its
present shape. Surely before entering into a conflict with organized labor the management should
have at first called the men together and warned them that opposition to the foreman must cease.
That this was not done must be
reasonably strong proof to the outside onlooker that there is some
ulterior object in the whole matter
which is not now disclosed^ Trying to understand the whole matter, aud to act fairly with the contending parties, and bearing in
mind tbe current rumors on the
street today about the change in
Le Roi ownership, the World can
only guess that the lockout was
brought about purposly owing to
circumstances in England over
which the general marager has
had no control or in the alternative
that the threats made against the
smeltar foreman by a few hotheads
is boing made use of as a pretext
for a deliberate attack against
unionism.
Supposing, however, that we are
entirely wrong in both of the stated suppositions. Then admittedly
if there ever was a simple case
which could be promptly got at
and settled by friendly arbitration
the situation at Northport today is
one.

There was a street rumor current yesterday and today in Rossland that the control of the Le Roi
shares had passed from Whitaker
Wright into entirely new hands.
Who the new holders are is not
known for certain, several names
being mentioned.
It was further stated that a general consolidation of Red Mountain
properties was in progress anil that
the Centre .Star, War Eagle and
Iron Mask were to be included in
the deal. While the whole stor\
lacks positive confirmation it is
abundantly clear that an extensive-
operation of some kind is in progress, if not completed.
No word had been received, so
far as could be ascertained, as to
the result of the settling day on the
London exchange (or the Le Roi

and Kootenay companies, which
took place on the 22nd.

NORTHPORT SITUATION.
Mr. Bernard Macdonald will
pardon us for saying that, ou the
face of it, his version of the trouble
at Northport will not hang together. We must respectfully decline to entertain the smoothly put
statement of the general   manager.
Will anyone in Nossland, knowing Mr. Macdonald as we all do,
believe for a moment that because
a foreman, who had admittedly
and possibly deliberately, made
himself obnoxious ta a whole community and was threatened with
being run out of town by that
community, the smelter and the
Le Roi and allied mines must be
closed down 111 order to protect
this particular foreman and maintain the company's "policy?"
It will be noted:
1—That the men did not complain to the company.
2—That they did not demand
the discharge of the foreman.
3—That the uuion deny most
positively that they held any alleged secret meeting or planned
any acts of violence.
4—That they also deny that
Kadish ever called   them together

Both teams can stand a large
amount of practice, Trail being
particularly weak at the bat aud
in fielding. The feature of the
game was the home run of McLean
after an easy grounder to the
pitcher. Mr. Sears as umpire
filled the position in a very impartial manner,although Trail thought
he made a mistake in one or two
decisions.
Following is the score iu detail:

works debentures, leaving $54,180-
57, or a deficit of $8,439.05 Look-
iug ahead I cannot see that
the revenue will bo increased
much over that of last year. Every
available trades' license is being
collected iu, but on the other hand
the number of saloon liceuses is
less. The assessment cannot be increased as that is now tho full value
of the: proper ty. In fact there are
instances where property has been
offered for sale at much less than
the assessment*. Increase iu values will not admit innch expansion,
aud the trades* license, road tax,
and dog tax are the utfnost the law-
allows. The only item capable of
increase is the police court lines
and from recent events it looks as
if gambling and that other outlawed
vice were being gently fostered that
tho city, may profit by tho fines
periodically imposed. A most despicable state of affairs.* Is the city
ouly to pay its debts through the
rake-off from the   gambling  tables

Property Owner,
Editor World:—
Since the city council has declined to publish, previous to the g,een \Mamy
voting on the loan bylaws tomorrow, a statement of the city's
financial position the only data
available is the statement of January last and the recitals in the bylaws. These Bhow conclusively
that real estate, if these bylaws are
passed, will be taxed up to the hilt
and the borrowing power of the
city practically exhausted. The
situation thus becomes one which
property owners should consider
seriouly before voting to add to the
civic debenture debt.
By the Municipal Act the city is
-e.5_iowiTi.il to contract debts up to
20 per cent, of the assessment of
real property, in the ease of Rossland $333,948. Add the $50,000 it
is proposed to raise to the present
debt of .'.'09,000 and the total is
$319,000, leaving a margin of ouly
$14,948.   A very small sum.
There is no possibility of reducing the floating debt of $42,000 admitted in tho bylaws for the reasou
that the ordinary expenditure exceeds the ordinary revenue. Sifted
out from the statement of January
last the items of ordinary expenditure are found to be as follows:
