THE GEISER
APPEALS
A Probably Fatal Objection
--Judgment Will Be
Given Monday.
At thn supreme court sittings
this morning before Mr. Justice
Walkem, Hon. T. M. Daly appealed
on behalf of Albert Geiser from the
decision of the police magistrate
fining Goiser $550 and costs fortwo
violations of the alien labor act, in
importing labor here under contracts made in the  United  States.
Before the appeal was gone into
A. H. MaeNeill, K. O, on behalf of
tho prosooution objected that in
place of Geiser giving a bond as required by the statute before proceeding with the appeal, a marked
cheque from Messrs. Daly and
Hamilton, Geiser's solicitors, had
been handed in.
After hearing argument in the
matter the learned judge announced that he would give judgment on
the objection raised on Monday
morning at 10 o'clock. If the objection is sustained there is an end
of the matter, if not the main appeal will bo argued by counsel.
TRADES UNIONS.
A Statement   Credited   to   Mr.   Jnatlee
Drake at Vancouver,
The Nelson Tribune says editorially:
"Mr. Justice Drake of the supreme court of British Columbia
may be a very learned manjin the
law, but he knows absolutely nothing of trades unionisms, if the following utterance is a sample of
what he knows. In his address to
the grand jury at Vancouver, where
court is now being held, ho used
the following words: "Usually
when a man joins a labor union he
was bound hand and foot by the
opinion of one who was the manager, and very often tho workman
was compelled to leave off work at
the word of this irresponsible individual. It was necessary and important that a man should earn his
living for himself and his family,
and if he could not do this he would
become a pauper. When the strike
was on he received pay from the
union, whicn in itself was nothing
but pauperization."
Coming to Ro-iland.
Mr. Clement V. Paull, of the
London stock exchange firm of
Messrs. C. and A. Paull, who have
always been prominently connected with the British Columbia market, has sailed for British Columbia. Besides looking into the general situation in Rossland, Mr.
Paull will look over the Giant
mine, in which it is believed he is
largely interested.
RICH DISCOVERY
Free  Gold   Find   in  the
Lardeau.
$640 GOLD AND $8.40 SILVER
On the East Slope of Silver Cup
Mountain — Messrs. Emo and
Howard in Big Luck.
What promises to be an important find- of free gold haB been
made on the south fork of the
Lardeau. The Lardeau Eagle
gives the following account of the
find: On Saturday last a report
was circulated in town that Napoleon Emo and W. H. Howard had
made a discovery of what is believed to be the richest gold strike
found in this section for a long
time.
The new scene of attraction is up
the south fork of Lardeau creek
on the eastern slope of the Silver
Cup mountain, above the Sharon
and other properties already staked. The owners have staked eleven claims.
While thc owners of the property are not saying much about it
themselves, it is nevertheless true
that they did submit to Assayer
Shannon, for assay, carbonates
picked from the ledge outcropping
which ran .640 in gold and $8.40
in silver. Further explorations
will determine how much of this
ore there is in the ground, but as
the ledge can be traced over the
length of two claims, it is probable
that Messrs. Emo and Howard are
in luck.

BEAMISH
MUST STAY
The Judge Holds He Has
No Jurisdiction to Hear
the Appeal.
C. E. Gillan on behalf of Thomas
Beamish now in Nelson jail undergoing the sentence imposed by
Police Magistrate Boultbee, moved
to upset the conviction before Mr.
Justice Walkem.
In an able argument Mr. Gillan
contended that the summons and
the conviction disclosed no offence
against the criminal code of Canada, and that under any circumstances the conviction was bad, as
it was for two offences. Counsel
quoted authority -ir. support of his
application, but the learned judge
held that he had no jurisdiction to
hear the appeal, and accordingly
dismissed the application.
Mr. Gillan intimated this afternoon that he would renew his application before Mr. Justice Irving
at the Nelson assizes next week.
NORTHPORT
ACCIDENT
Seven More Men Quit Work
-Had His Jaw Badly
Broken.
Northport, Oct. 12.—A bad accident occurred at the Northport
smelter last night while tapping
No. 2 furnace. One of the farmers
omployed was struck by a 12-pound
hammer and his jaw was badly
broken.
Early this morning soven of the
feeders on No. 5 furnace quit work
and went out, and the furnace went

turned out to be a boy; and if a
girl, to wire the words: "Lady's

MINING PROFITS
Kootenay Mines on This
Year's Pay List.
NEARLY  A MILLION DOLLARS
Dividends and Capitalization of the
Properties—With Many Drawbacks a Good Showing.
With several of the big producing silver-lead mines not shipping
and the gold-copper mines of Rosaland tide up by a strike, Kootenay
is still making a record as a country in which mining is a profitable
business. So far thiB year eight
mines in Kootenay owned by incorporated companies whose shares
are quoted on the stock exchange
have paid dividends totalling $823-
000, as follows:
Bosun, Slocan $ 12,500
Centre Star, Rossland 105,000
Le Roi No. 2, Rossland... 144,000
North Star.East Kootenay. 117,000
Payne, Slocan     78,000
St. Eugene, East Kootenay 210,000
Rambler-Cariboo, Slocan. 12,500
Ymir, Nelson,   144,000
Total  $823,000
The issued share capital of these
eight companies totals $16,400,000
as follows:
Boson   $ 250,000
CentreStar  2,500,000
Le Roi No.  2 3,000,000
North Star  1,300,000
Payne ..< 2,600,000
St. Euguene  3,500,000
Rambler-Cariboo  1,250,000
Ymir   1,000,000
Total $16,400,000
Whether or not thiB is in excess
of the value of the properties is a
question of individual opinion. If
the eaptitalization is not excessive
thc shareholders of the Bosun
have got five per cent on their
capital, the Centre Star 3 per cent,
the Le Roi No. 2 4 j per cent; the
North Star 9 per cent, the Payne
3 per cent; the St. Eugene, 6 per
cent; Rambler-Cariboo, 1 per oent;
and the Ymir, 14j per cent. These
figures go to show that the shareholders in dividend-paying mines
have done on the average, as well
as those who have their capital
invested in other industrial enterprises.

NOTES AND COMMENTS.
It has been discovered that the
eagles used to decorate United
States warships are made in France.
From a snowslide to a royal
visit, there is scarcely an emergency thinkable which the men in
the service of the C. P. R. do not
tackle with perfect confidence, or
from which they do not emerge
with credit.—Revelstoke Herald.
It seems surprising that some of
our local politicians on the Liberal
side should have gone a long distance out of their way to try and
prevent the reasonable inforcement
of the alien labor act by the Dominion government. Yet beyond
all question at least one of the
members of the Liberal association
has done what he could to prevent
the Dominion official sent here,
from doing his duty, and if the rumor be at all correct has not hesitated to hold up Mr. Willliams as
an intimidator and an unproper
official generally.
It is stated that the local Liberal association will take the matter
up on Tuesday evening next, and
it is to be hoped that the aspersions cast upon the Ottawa man
will not be allowed to pass unchallenged as the charges made
are quite untrue and capable of
explanation and denial.
The World does not know the
official personalty, has never interviewed or spoken to him since
his arrival, and has in no way interferred with him in the discharge
of his duties. We have learned
he has ascertained that the terms
of the act in question have been
openly and persistently violated,
and we believe that he basso reported to his department. Any one at
all familiar with the evidence submitted in the Geiser cases, would
have no difficulty in arriving at
the conclusion referred to and no
one can deny the plain truth of
it.
We have in Rossland a large
number of bona fide resident miners who have settled here with
their wives and little oneB,
in many instances purchasing their own homes and becoming permanent citizens of Kossland. They are undeniably an
excellent class of miners and are
good citizens in the best sense of
the term. Do our liberal friends
really want to drive these people
away and fill their places with
transients from Missouri and
elsewhere? Tramp miners at the
very best and for the most part
neither good citizens nor good
miners.
Have our own good Rossland
men in struggling for what they
believe to be their rights forfeited
all recognition at the hands of tbe
Liberal association, that the association or leading mombers of it
should go out of their way to interfere on behalf of undesirable
class referred to?
Without any open alliance there
has been a bond of sympathy more
or less apparent between the liberal
and the labor bodies in the past.
The election of Smith Curtis, M. P.
P., was one result of such a combination, for it is reasonably clear
that without the labor vote be
certainly could not have defeated
Mr. Mackintosh. If however the
Liberals really do not desire to
antagonize organized labor they
■hould make their position very
clear on Tuesday night. After
what has taken place labor men
may be excused if they regard the
actions of the association with
Some suspicion.
The World believes that the
majority cf the association are in
favor of the law being allowed to
take its course without regard to
whether it affects the rich or the
poor, the powerful mine manager
or the working miner, and wo
think that the  would-bo wire pul-

The editor of the London B. C.
Review reads the union men of
Rossland a terrible lecture on their
"unreasonable demands" and describes the situation here in terms
that would make "an angel weep."
The editor, however, gives his hand
away by innocently remarking at
the conclusion of his delightful
article "We have lately ascertained
the views of Mr. G. T. Blackstock."
The overthrow of Tammany will
save New York enormously in salaries alone. The provisional estimates o{ the expenditure is $110,-
030,000, and fully half will be for
salaries. It would appear that by
salary increases and the cieuim
of new positions alone, the Tammany administration has cost the
city fully $15,000,000 more than is
necessary. Indeed, the friends of
Seth Low go so far as to assert that
a saving of $26,000,000 could be
effected.

It is refreshing to go away from
home and get really fresh information about Rossland and its
mines. Most people here have
long been under the impression
that the ore from the Le Roi and
other mines which ship to the
Northport smelter were sent down
over the Red Mountain railway.
It turns out, however, that thiB is
quite a {mistaken notion. The
London B. C. Review in describing
the progress being made in Rossland and Northport with nonunion labor asserts very seriously
that "Instead of hauling the ore
from the Rossland mines in small
handcars it will in future be transferred over a railroad and dumped
directly into large bins at the end
of the switch back!"
Now that Mr. Dunlop, the "well
known architect," has resigned his
lucrative position on the new
school building to work for the
Le Roi manager, will the active
school trustee get a competent man
to see that the specifications are
proporly carried out? An expert
said yesterday that the lumber was
the best and cleanest he had Been
in British Columbia. That iB satisfactory but a $10,000 building
should have a proper supervisor.
Who is the man?

Rossland, B. C, Sept. 5th,'1901.
To the Citizens anil Business Men of Rossland and Vicinity and to the General Public:
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 im*
partial 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
able to operate two of the five furnaces at the smelter. It is only a question of simple arithmetic to see that it 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
it 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 has 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 his 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 at. 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.
EXECUTIVE BOARD
ROSSLAND MINERS' UNION No. 38, W. F. M THE EVENING WORLD. ROSSLAND, B. C, OCTOBER 12, 1901
THE BACKCAPPER
What the Western Mining
World Says of Him.
WAGES WAR ON PROSPERITY
Have We Any of the Breed in Ross-
Jand?—Should Be Driven Out—
The Knocker Described.
Of all   God's  cattle  roaming at
large on .Vhe face ai the earth, the
backcapp er is the worst.  He wages
war against the  prosperity of  the
community in which he lives and
performs thfi dog  in   the manger
act whenever an opportunity presents itself, says the Western Mining World.   He is found, more or
less, in all vocations, but the field
in which he  delights to revel—in
which he  can   kick  his heels the
highest and  snort the loudest—is
tho   mining   industry.    Here his
diversified talents for slander and
misrepresentation find ample scope.
Knowing   that  capital   is timid,
especially when seeking investment
upon a large soale  as  is usually
the case in mining deals, the back-
capper   recognizes  his golden opportunity to gloat.   He oils up iis
hoodoo, sees that evory part of his
delicate   machinery is  in perfect
order, and then gets a focus on the
would-be      purchaser.        Usually he   brings   down   his   game,
and     with     a     large      invoice
of satisfaction in stock proceeds to
hunt for another victim.   His most
glittering triumphs are registered
when the sale of a mining property
is almost consummated, and when
its reputation   is  as  sensitive to
slander as the good name of a pure
women.   It is then   that  he   approaches the buyer with the statement that he hopes the seller will
do well in letting go of the property
for he could do   nothing   with  it
himself,    on   acoount  of reasons
known only to those on the inside.
With language of this type; oovert
insinuations that may mean little
or much he frightens  capital into
indefinite delay and finally perhaps succeeds in   preventing    tho
deal.   Thus a loss is inflicted upon
the seller who lacks the money   to
work the property—upon the buyer, who misses the  opportunity of
a lifetime to (puadruple his wealth,
and   upon   the  community   that
1 oses the industrial value  of   the
producing    mine.   The  backcap-
per is   actuated   by  one  of   two
motives—the   hope   that he oan
deflect capital from its avowed
purpose into channels more profitable to himself, or to inflict injury upon the would-be seller.
The firBt move he tries to justify
on business grounds; the second
he never acknowledges. Human-
experience has shown over and over
again, that no man ever added a
substantial prop to his own business interests by pulling down those
of his fellow man; and to inflict
loss upon others, to the dotriment
of the community, is like derailing a passenger train to get even
with the conductor.

NOT SETTLED.
Whereas agents of
the mining companies
have circulated the report that the strike
existing at this place
is settled and work is
to be resumed at the
mines, we wish to
state that this report
is false and thereis no
probability of a settlement of the strike for
some time to come.
We advise all men
looking for employment to keep away

miles by good road from Meyers Falls. The town-
site is in the centre of tne rich aggregation of
mines comprising the Meteor, Stray Dog, White
Swan and Given groups, all of which are working
in high-grade shipping ore. A great number of
very promising properties are opening up in the
vicinity. It is surrounded by a splendid agricultural, fruit growing and stock raising country,
unequalled in the northwest, and has a splendid
supply of timber for building and mining purposes, together with unlimited water power near
It has already, besides a store, a number of buildings in course of erection, and a telephone service,
saw mill, etc., will be in operation within a short
time. Meteor is a high-grade camp of the real
Leadville type, the ores mined being gold, silver,
lead and copper. Picked assays have given as high
as $140,000 to the ton, the average of the camp
being about $35. You can't afford to forget Meteor.
