FIFTY-ONE   INCHES  DRILLED
Old Rossland Men on Top-Fifteen
Minutes Work in Hard Granite
—Other Teams.
Spokane, Sept. 23.—(Special.)—
In the roclfdrilling contest in this
city last night W. M. Ross, of
Phoenix, B. C., and G. S. McLeod,
of Sandon, B. C, known among the
list of competitors as the Rossland
team, won first prize, drilling 51
inches and breaking all previous
records for drilling in granite rock.
The second prize was awarded
James Davey and H. Stephens, of
Marysville, Mont., who drilled 46
2-5 inches, while Frank Stevens
and Peter Spaulding, of Murray,
Idaho, took third prize with 42 15-
1G inches.
But three (earns contested.
Fifteen minutes was the drilling
time allowed each.
Both Ross and McLeod are old
Rossland hoys and are well-known
throughout the camp. Thoir victory is but little more pleasing to
them than to their many friends
here. That they broke all records
in such contests is not surprising
as they have hod considerable experience and their ability is well
known, hut it is exceedingly gratifying lo Rossland people nevertheless.
KILLED
BY A BEAR
Fate of a Kaslo Prospector
and Hunter-Badly
Mangled.
Kaslo, Sept. 2G.—Dan Rice, a
prospector and hunter of this place
met his death on Friday in an
encounter with a bear. He went
up Milford creek on that day with
Gus Adams on bear-hunting trip.
After the pair had been out some
time they became separated, and
Adams not finding him at camp
when he returned, became alarmed
and returned to Kaslo on Saturday. He formed a party of ten
men, who left that night, and on
Sunday they formed a search
which was rewarded by finding
Rice's body in a badly mangled
Condition. From appearance he
had stepped over a log on top of
a large silver-tip,which had attacked him, breaking his arm. It had
also struck him on the head, tearing away his entire face and forehead, and tearing the skull back
so as to expose the brain His left
arm was also chewed badly. Death
must have been instantaneous.
Qice had not even time to fire his
gun, which was found beside him.
The body was brought to Kaslo
last night and buried at 2 p. m.
With in. Bride.
Greenwood, Sept. 24.—Clive
Pringle, barrister, well-known
in Wesl Kootenay and the Boundary districts, who went east about
three months ago to get married,
has returned to Greenwood accompanied by his wife.

WHO IS THE ABLE EXPERT?
A Delicious Description in  the
London Financier.
THE AMIABLE JM IS AT WORK
Great News for Rossland People--How the Mines Are
Really Situated-Nearest Railway Is 30
Miles Away.
Residents here who were under
the impression that the Rossland
Great Western had two railroads
running over its property and that
the Kootenay mines were favorably situated as t> transportation
will be somewhat startled to find
that they have long been laboring
under a great mistake.
Who In the Expert.
In the London Financier of 28th
August last appears a lengthy
article upon the unhappy position
and future prospects of the two
properties named, written by a
mining expert of standing.
The Would regrets not being
able to reproduce the "bear" article in full but the following extracts will be read with interest.
A Gooil Character.
"It may perhaps be as well (o
say at once that the in forms l._n
contained in this article is based
on the evidence of a mining expert
of unquestionable ability and integrity, and one who is thoroughly
acquainted wilh the properties
named, aa well as with all other
mining propositions of importance
in British Columbia."
Thia In Important.
"The following statements, I here
fore, may be accepted by the public wilh implicit confidence."
Here Is Qood Newe Indeed.
"Both the Rossland Great Western and Kootenay arc placed at a
great disadvantage hy the lack of
a railway service. The ores, therefore have to be transported at
great expense by means of horse-
waggons over rough roads for a
distance distance of about thirty
niMes to the nearest lakes, across
which thoy are takeu by boat and
finally shipped by rail to the
Bmelter at Northport and Trail
Creek. To the uninitiated it may
may be well to point out that of
every ton of stuff thus transported
irom the mine to the smelter, 11)
owl. roughly speaking, is waste
rock."
Worse nml Worse.
"The lack of railway service also
adversely affect tbe mines with
respect to the carriage of the necessary mining materials, fuel etc.,
which have to be taken to the
mines by the samo expensive methods by which their ores are sent
from thence."
An Explanation?
Mr. Purgold, of Liverpool, having written the London paper denouncing the absurd misstatements
made by "the expert of standing"
tlie Financier wrote its trill/ able
correspondent for an explanation
and this is bis reply:
Makes ll Oulte Clear.
The expert explains that "not
having been in England, except at
short and widely-separated intervals, for many 3 ears, he was not
acquainted with the names by which
the mines are known in London.
The facts produced in the article
are applicable to two properties
situated in the Kootenay district,
sometimes known  there as Le Roi
No. 3 and Le Roi No. 4, and it will
be readily understood, having regard to their names and their connection with the Whitaker Wright
group, how it was assumed that
these must be the mines known
here as -Rossland and Kootenay
respectively. Whilst the Nickel
Plate is situated on the slope of the
Red Mountain, where are situated
also the Le Roi, Le Roi Ne. 2, Centre Star, War Eagle, etc., and all
within a short distance of the railway, the properties referred to
above are situated altogether beyond the Rod Mountain, and several miles from the railway, as
staled in the article."
The Amiable Mar.
The article was of course intended to deprebs the shareB of the
Kossland Great Western and the
K'ootciij.y mu;"., but possibly the
amiable liar has gone a trifle too
far an 1 sufficiently over-stepped
the mark to do tbe camp much
barm. The article is simply a
glaring sample of the "news"
placed before English investors
concerning British Columbia.
ANOTHER
INJURED
A Josie  Missourian Hurt

Fell on Him.
Yesterday while one of the men
from Missouri was placing a timber in the cage at tho Josie he
slipped, causing tho limber, a
framed post about 22 inches in
diameter, to fall, catching poor
"Bud" across the back. He was
[licked up in an unconscious condition and taken lo the hospital.
It is feared he is seriously injured
internally.

LE ROI FIASCO
Another Attempt and Another Failure.
AMOS LEE COMES DOWN AGAIN
Frank E. French Alone in His Glory
The Net Result-Eager Applicants From Missouri.
The much advertised re-opening
af the Le Roi mine took place yesterday. At least the Miner said
so this morning or otherwise Rossland people might not have suspected it.
Three Rossland men went up
the hill and one of these came
down this morning. Amos Lee,
one of the two union men who
joined the noble army of Missouri-
ans and young Ontario harvesters,
was led to bolieve that some of the
stories appearing in the Rossland
Miner were partly true but when
he found out the true condition of
things he naturally quit the job
cold and came back to the union
fold.
Frank E. French,who is holding
the proud position of foreman to
the farmers, is the only union
scalp in Bernard Macdonald's wigwam today as the result of all the
shouting for days past.
French is a butcher amongst
otliLf'hit!o_ and <*kesmaurally to
his present job tho' its likely he
feels lonely.
Doc. Johnstone, a one lime druggist is the third of the rescuers and
be holds the job of a shift boss.
The other eager applicants for
work are simply some of former
Contractor Geiser's men kindly
lent for.the occasion and their
prompt deportation to Missouri
and other parts of tlie United
States is already assured.
Naturally the street talker has
been busy with announcing details
of tlie army which has rushed into the eager arms of the Le
Roi manager, but no one believes
lhat class of jaw-worker now.
Larry McKclvev today writes th6
World as follows:
"I wish to emphatically deny
the street rumor that I intend going on the Hill to work. I have
been able so far in life to live without thc brand of scab, and intend
to do so in the future. Poverty
and misfortune will not make-mo
forsake principles."
Tho new scheme to evade the
Alien Labor Act by which the
immigrants are to be engaged over
again at an employment ollice will
not work, and the Le Roi manager
will greatly relieve an angry and
impatient public if he will kindly
slop bluffing and get down lo business, He knows very well lhat a
conference is coining and he might
as well come to it at once in place
of playing tbe fool with the public
at large.

ALIEN LABOR LAW.
The following appeared as an
editorial in the Vancouver Province on Saturday, and is significant coming from the recognized
newspaper organ of the Liheral
party in Vancouver.
Does it mean that the Alien Labor Act is to be strictly enforced at
RoBsland? If it does the importation of strike-breakers from Jop-
lin, Missouri, will'come to a sudden end. British Columbia must
be kept free from alien conlract
.. labor, whether it be from Missouri
or China. The Province editorial
says: We arc doubtful of the speedy
settlement of the strike in the
Rossland camp from tho fact that
the men when they went out were
in a position to*fight the^matter for
some monthB, and besides this
they not only had assistance from
the other Bide of the line, but the
great majority of them could go
elsewhere in British Columbia or
the United States and get as much
money for their labor as they were
obtaining in the Le Roi and Centre
Star properties.
B| Not only could they get as much
money, but they would not be in
the atmosphere of distrust and
anxiety which existed in Rossland
for a year and a half prior to the
shutdown.
It is well known on* all -hands
that the managers of the War
Eagle and Centre Star properties
had been making it uncomfortable
for the men for many months
previous, and doing it evidently
with one object in view. This is
bo patent to merchants and miners
alike in the Rossland camp that
ex-Governor Mackintosh, in an
interview with him in the Rossland Miner in April last, said that
the mine managers appeared anxious that the properties in their
charge should not pay dividends.
The remark of the governor's was
in reference to the uncompromising
attitude of Messrs. Macdonald and
Kirby, and the apparent desire
manifested by them to outrage the
sensibilities of the men to such a
degree that a strike would he declared. It is more than possible,
however, that in addition to this
Mr. Mackintosh had an inkling of
the stock-jobbing propensities of
the directors of both companies,
and taking the action of the managers into consideration in this
connection he came to thc conclusion that in the whole conduct
of the mines there was so much going on below thc surface as to
justify him in imagining that the
shutdown for a time at least waB
necessary to the purpose of those
who were operating the shares.
It is announced that Mr. (Ieiser
has obtained a contract for taking
out a considerable portion of the
ore of the Le Roi, and in this connection the assertion is made that
he can procure all the miners he
wants in Rossland. It is moro
than probable that under cover of
such a pretence ho will attempt to
bring in cheap labor from the other
side. It is to be hoped that if any
such attempt is made it will be defeated, even if the government hag
to take action in helping to do so.
There is little doubt that at one
time the manager of the Centre
Star imported a considerable number of Italiaim from the other side,
and in doing so had the secret as-
Bistauce of tho manager of the Lo
Roi. He had to cease doing so in
compliance with outraged public
opinion, but there is little question
that the policy of the aanagers in
Rossland in this respect has not
been changed and that they will
do everything in their power to
bring in objectionable labor for
the purpose of cutting down wages.
Jt is to be hoped that if there is
an attempt to resume work on a
basis of that kind it will fail. It
is the desire of all interested in the
province that operations should be
resumed with white working men
on every level and in every department of the mines.
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
According to the newspapers
very few persons merely "die."
The banker merely "passes in his
checks," the cashier "goes to his
last accounts," the mug-wump
"joins the great majority," the
cobler "breathes his last," the
saloon man "seeks the spirit land,"
the gambler "shuttles off," the
stable man "kicks the bucket," the
spiritualistic medium "gives up his
ghost," the accountant "goes to his
last reckoning."—Ex.

To the Citizens and Business Men of Rossland and Vicinity and to the General Public .-
The LeRoi mine manager has been circulating a report that the strike here is practic-.
ally at an end ancl the mines are aboul. lo 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 li is 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 durwig that time is that they have been
able to operate two of the live furnaces at the smelter, It is only a question of simple arithmetic to see that it it takes three and one-halt'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 e.the 500 men necessary to start  the smelter,
it will take twice that many, or seventeen and one-half month.--, 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 smelt.t, 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 live furnaces
at the Northport smelter. This is the success he boasts. I le claims the strike is at ari 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 34
hours. They have produced no matte for shipment up till-August 25. He claims to have
shipped one carload on August 21. Tnat it was the highest in value of any shipment made.
The records of the railroad ;it 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 ol 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 thc miners of Rossland by false promises. We have every reason to hope lhat by October 1, iqoi, Bernard Macdonald's name will only remain in Rossland as an unpleasant memory. We hope for an honorable settlement of tht: difficulties
here. The sooner the better it wjjl suit the union miners of Rossland. But if it is necessary
to continue this light to its final end the union miners and smeltermen will stand shoulder to
shoulder for carrying on the light.
This war was forced on these unions. We entered the struggle full of a belief in the
justice'of our cause and confident of Durability 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 attetlded.Our efforts.

A RATHER
STALE MOVE
Putting Geiser Men Into
the   Le Roi -- Making
Application.
Yesterday morning in order to
kee]) his word to start the Le Roi
mine Manager Macdonald took the
men from the Josie mine, with the
exception of 10 on each shift, to tl.e
Le Roi, where they began operations under French, Desmond &
Co.
In order to impress the general
public wilh the idea that tho Le
Roi company is being flooded with
applications for employment, the
management yesterday had all the
men now in their employ fill out
applications for employment.
These applications state the man's
experience^?) and qualifications
and the position he desires. The
idea is that they wish the public
to believe that, whilo there are 117
men now on their rolls outside of
the hospital, that there is another
batch of 117 competent men seeking employment.
This is certainly a most brilliant
idea, one worthy of the imagiria-
tion of Jules Verne in his best
days.
dents in connection with the early
days of Ainsworth and Nelson, but
when any matter connected with
his real estate or mining property
crops up he loses his head.

PRESIDENT
ROOSEVELT
A Man of Great Possibilities--What He Has Already Done.
Mr. Roosevelt is an interesting
personality in American politics.
He nan b.en described as rich
enough not to work at all, yet ho
works hard all  the  time   He  is
unique figure, a sportsman, an
author and a soldier. "Teddy"
Roosevelt, as he is popularly
known, is the author of tlie phrase
"tho strenuous life.". He is a fighter, and his influence, powerful as
it was, he lent towards creating
the war between tlie United Slates
and Spain for the possession of
Cuba.
Theodore Roosevelt was born in
Now York, October 27, 1858. His, (JoOClOVO
father, who died in 1879, WIIS for
many years an influential Republican, but his uncle Robert I'..
Roosevelt, was equally inTuential
in Democratic polities. Theodore
Roosevelt himself is a life-long
Republican, although he is not
what is known as a machine man.
Indeed, his speaking has more
than once embroiled liim with tlie
party, but Roosevelt has always
had the courage of his convictions,
and was never afraid to express
what he felt.
As   a   young   man     Roosevelt
graduated from Harvard   in 1880,
and then   entered   Columbia   law
school.    In 1881 he was   nominated for the assembly   in   the   21st
district of   New   York  City,   was
elected by a   handsome   ma jority,
and soon became one of the Republican leaders,   In 1880 Mr. Roosevelt was nominated  for mayor   of
New   York  by   the   Republicans,
and ran against Abram S. Hewitt,
Democrat, and Henry George,  tho
Labor candidate.    He  was   badly
beaten in this three-cornered   contest, and for a  time   kept   out   of
politics, and turned   bis   attention
to literature.   Early in May, 1899, IS
President Harrison appointed himlgvfij
a civil service   commissioner,   "ndijKjjij
he continued in oflice under  1're.i-1 KV53
dent Cleveland, resigning   in  1896|jgjfe»
lo become president of  the   police | C5"2J
commissioners of New York.      He!"    '"
did remarkable work in  reforming i
the     department,   which     under
Tammany influences, had become j
utterly demoralized   and   corrupt.
It was his habit to walk about   the
city at   night   and   in   tlie early
morning, to see   fo.r   himself  how
the ollicers were attending to their
duties.    He kept up his   work   for
several weeks, and   the   police   of
New York suddenly   found    them,
selves attending to business.
In this position Mr. Roosevelt
served two years, and then resign- j (j&*M
ed, to accept the post of assistant
secretary of the navy, offered to
him by President McKinley.
When the war with Spain broke
out Mr. Roosevelt resigned his
latest appointment because he
wanted to jofn the army and go
to Cuba. His explanation to
friends for his action was that he
had done as much as anyone to
bring on the war, and when war
was declared he had no right lo
ask others to do the fighting and
stay at home himself.
Mr. Roosevelt organized the volunteer cavalry that has gone  into !
history as the "Rough Riders,"   a
body   comprising   men   of  every,
creed,   rank and profession,   and
which made a record for   itself   in

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,

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,

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 alford to forget Meteor.
