J. L. Whitney & Company the
well-known slock brokers are deeply interested in an oil venture.
Mr. Whitney has had the matter
in hand for some time and C. E.
Race is now on the ground looking
after the deal.
Thi' new field is in Alberta on
the east side of thu Roekies, about
half way between Calgary and the
United Stales boundary line on
one of the many creeks to be found
in lhat neighborhood.
The necessary papers incorporating a company to go into the
business in British Columbia and
the Territories have been forwarded to Victoria, and the full details of lhe venture will he shortly
announced.
Mr. Whitney has already received some specimens of oil from
the claim and had them on exhibition at his ollice today. A large
quantity of oil bus already been
taken and used for lubricating purposes and the new company proposes to push the venture for all it
is worth.
A good many Rossland people
are in the concern, and are rejoicing over the deal.

J. S. Caiithh. D.P.A., Nelson,    tf
Thanks to the very full accounts
which have appeared in the English
paper of the Le Roi meeting in
London any one in Rossland or the
Kootenay country who honestly
desires to understand what is coming,, can at least obtain a very
fair idea.
Tbe statement made by the
chairman at the shareholders
meeting, the speech made by Mr.
Frecheville himself, all of which
have appeared in the col urns of the
World, as well as what has followed since, are so clear that no
man of common sense can fail to
grasp the real situation.
The only course possible for (he
three Le Roi directors to follow
has been adopted. Manager Macdonald and his uniou smashing
policy will Undoubtedly be upheld
—30 long as be is manager. As
the Times puts it "there will be no
surrender of the unions—until after the investigation." How could
there be?
While, very naturally the union
men and almost everyone in Rossland is regarding the labor aspect
of the Le Roi situation, it must be
abundantly clear lo every thinking man, that the labor question
is only one of the many matters,
Mr. Frecheville is eomming hero
to thoroughly investigate.
It is most unlikely that the labor

undoubtedly is, would necessitate
a 12,000 mile trip by a man of
Preoheville's standing if that was
all there was lo be investigated.
As between tbe new directors
aud the old manager the union
men arc interested, outside of their
own fight just to this extent, that
if Mr. Macdonald remains in charge
no mailer what settlement is arrived at finally there is sure to bo
more or less friction. The men
made ono agreement with him and
one of their grievances at the pres-
eut time is that he did not act up
lo what he promised and agreed to.
Further than this, bis open and
avowed policy has been tobreak up
unionism here, no mailer at what
cost, and naturally his retirement
will be a source of satisfaction to
the men.
Even Mr. Macdonald's paper
will nol now deny lhal. a searching
investigation is coining, although
it has denied   il   lime   and   again
Not one of the old bands has
gone back to work. The Geiser
scheme is already doomed. Th
War Eagle and Centre Slar mines
have not attempted any such
foolish move as Manager Macdonald is frantically trying in order lo
make a showing. It will be lime
enough after Mr. Frecheville has
completed bis work nnd made bis
report lo say .what Ihe World
thinks of lhe outlook for the union
issue at slake here, important as it  men.

London, Sept. 16.—Lord Kitchener has seni King Edward, ns
coloncl-in-chicf of Ihe Gordon
Highlanders, an account of an incident that strongly recalls the
storming of Dargfii heights by that

during the Boer attack of July -lib
on Watson Spruit, the Highlanders
behaved with the utmost gallantry.
The last four men, though completely -surrounded and without
cover, continued to fire until three

Charles Abraham Gregg has had
quite a sharp attack of what the
old ladies call "windy   spazzums,"
and we are   anxious,  as  they  are
dangerous to persons tho least  bit
inclined     to     embonpoint.      We
thought we  were  getting  used   to
bis frantic periodic outbreaks, but
this time be has gone to the length
of making an affidavit, and we feel
hurt at his   want   of   faith in   us.
There was no'need   for it for what
he says always goes.   In fact next
to  Baron   Munchausen  and   Tom
Popper, there is no one whom  we
respect more, or believe more   implicitly.    And then   lo   make   the
"city" editor take an affidavit  tool
Really too bad!    And  tho deputy
assistant "circulation" editor   tells
me that be  was  to have   made a
little affidavit too, but he was  late
in getting back   from  distributing
his   papers.    Playing   marbles,    I
suppose.    Sad dogH   these   editors!
Forgetful too, sometimes.    For  instance they forgot to.make the city
official who, it is alleged, heard lhe
fateful words  take   his   affi.    Bui
perhaps it would   bring  him   into
loo much  prominence.   In  which
case, the said   official   will   know
bow to avoid these  things  in  future.    Don't let us have   any more
affidavits      anyhow.       Whatever
Charles Abraham tells us  we  will
believe.    Only some times we have
to     be   careful,   because   Charles
Abraham is just   a trifle  gullible
himself, and lender-hearted withal.
Vou remember  bow solicitous be
was about the fate of his three  fellow-employes whom he in his simplicity, believed were "fired"  from
Ihe Hill.    I refer lo tbe   Jew   bartender, the: booster, and   tbe   hobo.
He      need    not    have    worried.
They wen- nol  fired   at   all.    God
never made a man so lazy or   useless thai he   couldn't   hold   down
his position as   a  "scab"   at   this
stage  of   lhe   game.    They   came
down   town    because   they   knew
most of lhe mining work was being
done in Ihe I.e Koi printing   office,
and   it   was   quite   natural   Ihey
should look for a job   as  near   lhe
international and Clifton as possible.   And then,   in  bis   famous
"game   is   up"    article.   Charles
Abraham says "men are coming in
on every   train."     There  may   he
Bnme truth in that.      I   have   only
met one train lately, and it had a
man on board, hound for the Lfl
Roi mine. I think his name was
Bratnober, or something like lhat,
and if it is correct thal"all capable
men are given employment," I
guess he'll find a job cleaning up
around, or something, lie looked
a capable man, but then appearances an- deceptive. Why, even
the astute businesslike Mr. Geiser
sometimes mistakes Jew bartenders and hoboes for miners. Apropos of minors, Charles Abraham
goes on lo Bay.—"It goes without
saying thai the miners who are at
work are skilled men in every
sense." That, I knowjlo lie irue,
for Mr. Geiser told me, in court,
the other day that they were three
■■i-(\ lirst class men. In fact, :is he

THE LE ROI MANAGER.
Commenting on the complete defeat of Whitaker Wright at the Le
Roi meeting, The London Financial Times says editorially: "Mr.
Frecherville will report as to the
expediency or otherwise of Mr.
Macdonald continuing to be general manager, besides giving his
views as to the propriety of that
official's action in resisting the
labor party, as well as other matters. It was, at any rate made
clear that there would be no surrender to the strikers until the report has been received. How the
Le Roi will progress under the new
conditions it is at present impossible to conjecture. But whatever
may be the good intentions of the
new directors, much must be dependent on who is general manager,
and how he discharges his duties.
Mr. Frecheville's verdict on the issue whether there shall be a change
in the office will be of paramount
importance."
The above did not appear in a
labor "organ" nor one which is renowned, for being particularly
favorable to unions generally.
True the Financial Times has no
use whatever for Whitaker Wright
or any of bis followers in England
or out here; hut then no really
respectable newspaper lias.
The paragraph quoled sums up
the Le Roi situation as it stands today, and as it will stand until Mr.
Frecheville comes here, and makes
the thorough investigation he has
been employed to make, and reports his findings to his company.
All the English papers contain
lengthy accounts of the meeting
and leading editorials on the subject and in no instance do they
differ materially from the position
taken hy the Times.
Ab the chairman of tbe meeting
said to the assembled shareholders:
"In the meantime, gentlemen, you
must remember that that your
general manager in Rossland is
Mr. Macdonald, and he reports to
us that it has been absolutely
necessary for him to oppose tbe
strength of the mining unions in
Rossland. We believe there has
been a necessity, but at the same
time as you have heard Mr. Frecheville is going out and that is one
of the first questions he will enquire into."
Mr. Macdonald bravely denied
the idea of there being anything to
investigate. His newspaper referred in most sneering terms to
the so-called visit of inspection and
investigation, and openly charged
tho Would with trying to mislead
the miners by holding out vain
hopes that any investigation could
possibly take place.
How much of what has happened
in London of late of the most vital
importance to Rossland has appeared in the columns of Mr. Macdonald's paper, the Rossland morning Miner? Tbe absolute silence
maintained on all the important
matters referred to is plainly significant of bow the Le Roi manager feels on the subject. Doubtless he is busy getting matters in
shape for Mr. Frecheville's visit,
and if but a small portion of what
is now common talk about thc
streets of Rossland iB true, there
will be plenty to investigate.
Pending Mr. Frecheville's arrival the union can well afford to
watch the pretty game in progress
here—aDd smile.
WAGES AND HOURS.
The Labor department of the
London Board of Trade has just
issued a report on the changes in
rates of wages and hours of labor
for 1900. It shows that the year
was one of exceptional prosperity
for the operatives. Some, it appears from the details have prospered more than others, hut the
general rise in wages whicb has
been going on for some years past
has gone on conspicuously during
the twelve months comprised in
the report.
Referring to strikes and lockouts,
the report is very encouraging. It
shows that many firms, as a matter of practice, allow the wageB of
their work people to be governed
indirectly by the terms of general
agreements, tbe decisions of boards
of conciliation, or the operation of
scales. The net result has been
that labor disputes have much less
frequently become acute, and the
statistics on the subject show a
distinct improvement.
In 11)00 only five per cent, of the
persons whose wages were changed
were concerned in either strikes or
lockouts. Three methods were chiefly employed in coming to an agreement. 1st. Sliding scale. 2nd.
Conciliation boards or some equivalent body. 3rd. Negotiation,direct or
indirect between the parties concerned.
In 1890 the percentage using the
sliding scale was 22, for conciliation boards 10, for negotiation between the parties concerned 68. In
1900 the first had declined to 10,
and the third to 42 while the second i.id risen to the same figure.
This is satisfactory as indicating
a growing feeling of friendship and
trust between employed and employers.
Referring to hours of labor the
report in question showB that in
1900 no less than 50,857 workmen
had their hours of labor diminished
by about four hours and a quarter
per week on the general average.
This reduction was larger in itself
and affected a greater number than
in 1899.
The eight-hour day movement is
making progress, for a greater
number of work people secured it
in 1900 than in any previous year,
this being chiefly due to the inclusion of the Lanarkshire Coal
mines.
It will be noted, and well noted,
that such an insane policy as that
inaugurated, or attempted by Bernard Macdonald at the Northport
smelter and the mines here of destroying labor unions finds no place
in the old country. One can imagine what the reBult would be, if
any company manager openly
took such action, and the fate of
any company who supported their
manager's avowed policy.
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
The Silvertonian has suspended
publication. In their last issue
Messrs. Matheson Brothers, the
proprietors, say: "During our four
years in Silverton we have done all
that lay in our power to advance
the interest of the community; we
have taken part in the occasional
fights that come our way, neither
seeking or avoiding them, and always in a fair and open manner.
While we have made enemies in
this way, we flatter ourselves that
we have made many moro friends,
and that thc Silvertonian has been
a welcome weekly visitor to many
homes. When Silverton feels the
effect of the return of prosperity,
which is certain in the not far distant future, The Silvertonian will
be revived."
It will take more money than
Bernard Macdonald and Edmund
B. Kirby ever Baw to drive the
Western Federation out of Rossland.—Sandon Paystreak.
So long as Mr. Bernard Macdonald is general manager of the Le
Roi so long will he and his policy
be supported by the London directors, and he can obtain a daily
cable from London to that effect
and publish it under flaring headlines in the Miner—but it won't be
news here.

To the Citizens and Business Men of Rossland and Vicinity and lo the Genera! 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 impartial reader can see much reason for the joyful enthusiasm which Mr. Bernard Macdonald
and his paper profess to feel.
For three and one-hall 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 live 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 e the 500 men necessary to  start  the smelter,
it will take twice that many, or seventeen and one-half month-', to secure iooo 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. Mc 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. I le 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, lie claims to have
shipped one carload on August at. That it was the highest in value of any shipment math;.
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 ol the river.
He also claims to be able to start thc mines in Rossland. Apparently he docs not
realize there is an alien act in Canada, for of thc 30 employes now at.thc 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 have every reason to hope that by October 1, 1901, Bernard Macdonald's name will only remain in Rossland as an unpleasant memory. We hope lor 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 thc light.
This war was forced on these unions. We entered the struggle full of a belief in the
justice of our cause and conlident of our ability to carry it successfully to an end. 'Ihis 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.

Located on the bill.

For don't be need it in his biz —
The Barren Bernard bold?
Take up poor Harney's burden,

He'd like, wilh honor lo himself,
To drop clean out of sight.
With Frecheville's coining on the

And Barney on the griddle,
He soon will lind wbosegame is up
And who'll play second fiddle.
Take up poor Burnev's burden,

Seattle, Sept. 10.—Considerable
anxiety is expressed through inquiries received in this city regarding the whereabouts of F. M. Crop-
Icy, well known in Southern California, where he was a prominent
business man for many years, and
also in Nome mining districts,
where ho was regarded as one of
tlie lucky ones.
The missing man arrived in this
city from Nome on the steamer
John S. Kimball, August 19. He
passed several days with friends in
thiB city and then started for San
Francisco, being escorted to the
train by several of those who knew
him. He is supposed to have on
hiB person at least .3000 in currency in addition to drafts amounting to possibly a like amount.
From that day to the present time
he has neither been seen or heard of
States. He longs lo fold
them in his arms as they alight
from the train at Scab junction.
He knows them for tho fine fellows
they are. They'll be dictated to
by no paid agitator. Perish the
thought!
But   then   he   must   remember
that it is only natural  for   Wood- j
side to try and  keep them  out   ofK.Or  1 .
i    ni,__i.l   at   ti ..'fl.i.'b    i
British Columbia. Why, it was
only last July 4th that said Wood-
side in his newspaper, "The Miner," denounced the whole bilin of
American miners, lock, stock and
barrel, calling them law-breakers,
desperadoes, &c, and urged the
thrifty law-abiding Canadian article to have nothing to do with
them. He charged them with—
but let me see. It was Woodside
who wrote that 4th of July article
wasn't it? On second thoughts I
believe it was Charles   Abraham.
A iu ord to the wise is sufficient

Mr. Editor do tell Billy McDonald to be more discreet.   Why, he
gives the whole game away.    Only
yesterday I heard him say in quite
a loud voice to Bulmer.     "Wei
how are they coming?"   The reply
came:   "Oh, kinder slow."   They
were over heard of course and   the SJJNfTj
result is, that the chief of police and I gjjl^f
the "railway" editor of the  Miner 'BftKJ
are searching every  freight train !
for the cases of rilles and revolvers'
that are   coming  for  the   Miners' ;
union.   Yon see, it is all right in a!
wayback place, but when there are
"real smart"   men   around   it   is
risky, to say the least   of   it.   So
much can be made out of a simple ! |&riS
remark. | £<j$2
Why I knew a parson who j §£53
preached a sermon that drew tearh ffcfgj
from every eye, on the simple j ©J^
words. "And lu- coughed twice £fo*£j
and spat thrice." j SSJQ
And you you be careful too, Mr. I Jjjftjf
Editor. That last anarchistic tir- j fi^jKJ
ade of yours would have made
even Czolgosz himself shudder.
Luckily there were no really prominent people in town at the time,
or else a dastardly crime would
have followed. With Col. Jackson
on a visit to Lord Minto, and our
only other colonel gone tuna fishing, we breathed freely. But do
be more careful. It upsets Charles i
Abraham, and another "windy',)
spazzum" might kill him.
