Rossland Miners' Union, No. 38,. Forward
• Rossland, Aug. 28.—At a meeting of
Rossland Miners'Union, held last even,
ing; the following**preamble and resolution wero unanimously adopted: To
Hon.; Richard McBride—Whereas,* tho
mining and smelting interests of south-
ern British Columbia are being hampered by lack of coke,' which, if continued*
will result in the closing of all the
mines and smelters, and by reason of
the'fact large numbers of our members
arc out of employment,' .        „ '     '„
And, whereas, the shortage is duo in
large degree to tho fact that 27,549 tons
of coke havo beeii sent to the United
States smelters during the present year,
And;' whereas, the charter ,of tho
Crow's Nest company provides that all
smelters and m.incs in Yale and Kootenay shall be furnished at all .times with
sufficient supply of coke,
Therefore, be it resolved by the members of Rossland Miners' Union, No. 38.
that '-the provincial1 -government be
urged to immediately, enforce the penalty
against the Crow's Nest company- as
contained in its charter for its failure to
provide sufficient coke for operation* of
the smelters and mines',in -the district
of-Yale and-Kootenay. *■*   -   •■■■■■

The concert given Jast Friday night
in the Opera House' by Misses Dolly
Barnett and' Rheta Todd, and their
friends in aid of that deserving* charity,
the Children's Homo in Vancouver, B.
C, was a very successful entertainment,
and it realized the verv creditable sum
of 82 dollars.,-, "      ..-..'■•'
The two -chief 'organizem of. this
annual treat are quite experienced
performer's, having -lost their stage
frigjht, and are thus able to sustain their
-parts of tho-programme in a. way that
would do*credit to aspirants much older
in years.-. Tho Scotch-song "Rowan
,Tree!', by-Miss Lizzie Lundie, the
Whoop Drill, and the..recitation by
Master Edgar Dudley " What a boy
can do," were enthusiastically received,
the Dudley youngster demonstrating
." What a boy can do." very successfuilv.*
For an encore to her song "A little
child'shall lead them," Miss Eva Severn
gave " I am daddy's little'girl," whilst
for her dance .Miss Dolly Barnett
brought down the house_.
' It was a surprise to us that young
peoplo.without'special training 'should
show' euch aptitude for singe work as'
was evidenced by the production of the
operatta" ''.Florinda, or. the-rose and
pearl," each part, being pleasingly sus-
taine'd- After some of the late questionable itinerant dramatic productions, to
listen to these performers for a couple
of hours .was .like'a benediction."

A circular recently Bent to all unions and Trades and Labor Councils
affiliated with tho Dominica Trades j
and Labor Congress of Canada,  ty
.the reception     committee at Winnipeg, says; in part:   "It is our    desire tb have you with us on    this
occasion;     there  are  many reasons
.why every trades union in    Canada
should send representatives   to   the
annual s.ssion of the Congress; perhaps the cne of primary importance
is that every lalor man in Can via
is interested in the new fields of employment that are continually opening r.p in this west.   Mere railways
are, being constructed here than   in
any other     part cf    the' Daminian.
Following     the . railways,  thousands
of settlers     are entering upon.  the\
. land,  and towns  arc  springing    up
into existence with phenomenal rap-
idity.TMs will, create "a demand   for
o every^  class of labor. *■    When conditions of such importance to'  labor
men exist in the west, every   trades
"union     should-   get information   at
"first hand."
The meeting in Winnipeg 'of    the
, Trades and Labor Congress presents
a favorable opportunity for acquiring ,'   valuable     information to° the

T. T. JOHN,       F, H. SHERMAN,,
Editor Manager
Mr. Tolmie, the deputy minister of
■mines, who left .Victoria.a few days
ago to enquire into ', the reported
Bh'orfcage of coke and coal in the
Beundary, country, was in Fernie
on Thursday last.- *■      ,     '
Mr. Tolmie'8 visit, as* far as * we
nn*3erstanct it, was to enquire into existing conditions and then to report
So the Provincial executive council,
!*y, -whom action alone can be taken.
'i '
"At tile last Provincial election at
"Rossland, from the Conservative
platfrom, Hon. R. McBride' did much
in the way of promising to have
* these vex<*d questions enquired into.
Turning to the customs accounts for
current year, we find that no less
than 27,596 tons of coke bad been
exported to the United * States by
Hhe Crow's Nest Pass,,Coal Company. None of this coke was for re-
Import into ..Canada, but was   used
nuirfc to them.
What'I think     a reasonable busi-
ness    man would     try to" do,    and
what in the, early stages of July we
did: try to do, was to   replace   the
men at the ovens and keep all our
customers supplied.   We sent special
agents   ' in till- directions where   we
could hope to secure mien for   that
purpose     and paid     their'"1 passage
money here.     This did. not relieve
the '' situation.     By' reason of the
higher wages paid inn the Boundary
country, we became an immigration
agency for our friends,"the smelters,
lhe imported.meri'did not stay with
us, and we added very few to,   our
staff from,the men we brought here.
Beginning     to realize, about the
23rd of July; that we were not   going to be successful,in replacing the-
men who had left us, we gave.ord-'
ers to the C. P. R. at-Michel;'from*
which point alone     shipments ; are
made to Great Falls, Montana,   to
discontinue sending any cars.or shipments to that point.   We had   some
time   previously    cut off the   shipments to Bast Helena and  Everett;
indeed,- we only made, in July two
small shipments to, Everettt, aggregating , sixty-one    tons, -and three
small  shipments,   aggregating    two
hundred and' ninety tons   to    East
Helena."_ We made no shipments   to
these smelters, in August.
Hapingcut out orders for all, foreign cars, except for loading to
Northport, on the 22rd of July, we
on the other side of the line. The
quantity is sufficient' to have kept
the Granby in full blast for a couple
of months. In January last there
were sent away 5,413 tons;' February,
1,892; March,' 5,352; .April, 2,756;
May, 1,953; June, 6,676; July, 1,672;
and up to August 15, 850 tons.
If these figures are correct, and we
Have no reason to suppose they are
not, then Mr. Tolmle's mission will
be considerably narrowed down and
a speedy solution should be reached.
•'— o—■    .
Mr. LindBsy,  general manager   of
' tho Crow's Nest Pass Coal Company,
Limited, made the following   statement to The Ledger;   '
There ts not and has not been a
shortage of coke to Canadian smelters Bince ns fur .back as the 1st. of
'June, due to shipments'to the United Stales, unless Northport, which
handles Canadian ores, may be con-
nidorod.n United States smelter.
.The Bhortajjo was duo to scarcity
of     labor,   brought   about   by thc
Boundary and West Kootenay mlncB
«ud smelters incrensinf' their wage
•ficnlo on the 1st July Inst, and at
limes to « scarcity of .Canadian Pacific, railway cars.
On thc 4th day of May, 1907, an
ngreemont was signed between this
company ond its employees at the
JTilncs ond coko ovens covering rates
•of wngCB for the next two yoars,
I lmvo mild tlmt there wata to
roko shortage duo to shipments to
Lnltccl States smelters, unless
Northport be trontcd ns such, during tlio mnntliH of .Tunt', July tu.d
AH   tho   Cnnndlnn   mombors wero

the month a June,   On tlio 3rd   of
■June,  (irnnby,  wlioro order    In   for '
1)00 innri     ilnil}*, wired
■we"reTTCligTa7''against our~strong"
protests, by the C. P. R-, whoBe
line alone% reaches our ovens at
Michal, to load G. N. cars with
coke destined for Great Falls, both
because they had no other ' cars __ to
give us and because they said they
were' penalty cars' and must be load-.
ed back the way they came.. Therefore, since the 24th of July the
loading of coke to Montana points
must te laid entirely at the door of
the C. P. R.
Mr, Aldridge, „ general manager of
the Trail smelter, knew of this, or
ought to have known of it before
he started to use thc Nelson board
of trade to bring about tbe present
movement, because ho sent, Mr
Guernsey here to find out, and Mr.
Guornsoy wus at Michel when we
were obliged to load these cars by
his own "railway, yet ■ Mr. Aldridge
sent him to tho board of trade meeting at' Nelson to prompt tho various speakers' to get up and object
to tho shipments of coke to Montana points. I repeat, therefore,

■which our Black, bins did not contain
j lenity of slack to charge all the
ovens which we had men to pull.
,Wo have frequently been short of
Canadian Pacific cars for coke load-
question, and we have also had our
mines" shut*.down on several occasions during both July and August
because the, C. P. R. had not given
- us sufficient cars to keep them working. Coko oven loaders., will not
work for companies who do not spp-
ply. them with a regular number   of
■ cars.    ■    „ ,     .
I am the only in charge of producing coal in the Crow's Nest-* Pass.
Who- has never,. until this   moment,
uttered, a public   word of   protest
, against. the car supply of the C. P.
*R.f but the manager of the Trail
smelter has, by his unfair   crusade
.against the company, made this im-
, perative, much as I regret it, and I
,wlsh to add that in my opinion the.
fault does not 'lie with the superintendents of divisions, but with the
railway, which has not on this di-
-~,viBion^eithertHe~^ars_6r''the" motive"
more than- the output of our .ovens
at Michel arid Coal Creek, and .we
have, 240 ovens lying idle" at Garbon-
f4do, none, of'which have been in use-
•'or more than one and a half years,
so that our coke oven plant is in
excess of our needs.
. To give you an idea as to what
extent we have been helped by the
smelters in this crusade, started a
v eel: ago - Sunday in the Nelson
papers, there "is therein a .statement
that Granby * was shut down owing
to the exportation of coke to Montana. There has never been a day
during July and August when Granby has not had at least three bund-
red tons of coke Bhipped to it.
Granby was shut down because between two and three thousand tons
of coko were delayed in transit by a
cave-in on the G. N. tunnel near
Bonner's Ferry, and about-the same
'time the C. P. R.* tipped over at'
barge on Kootenay Lake containing
twelve cars of coke, consigned partly to Granby and'"-partly to Trail.
The Phoenix Pioneer, which should
be well informed' on this, point, in
its issue of the 24th, says that the
shut Uow.i at ..Granby was not due
-.power'.to take care" of their business. Unless the matter is quickly
leme'died, with the approaching hardest to be. moved and the winter
facing us, the outlook is anything
, but encouraging. '■;'.,
. Let me' ask this question. - Is
Northport, which treats almost cx-
. tlusively Canadian ores, to be treated us a United States smelter? We
havo always considered not. And I
see tho Rossland miners are asking
the.,government .to see that they
get- steady ' work, If Northport
binclts no ores the Le Roi mines
will produce no ores.
I desire to say that we have ample coko ovens to make all the coke
necessary to All all our orders both
in Canada and the United States,'
If wb have men to handle them and
can get cars from the railway to
transport tho coke, but if wo have
not tho men or the cars somebody is
going to fall short,
It is now nearly three years since
tho Dominion Copper Company and
tho D. 0, Copper Coinpnny took their
business away from us and went to
other manufacturers in Alberta for
their coke, so that we have nothing whatever to do with their troubles. Wo have contracted tho whole
ovtput of , our Pernio nnd Michel
ovens in Canada and tho United
States. It Is fiood business to do
i*o, because we want to keep our
mlnea, man and ovens at work, Thc
government has an interest ot 9c per
itoh coko tax on every ton we make.

Ab Secretary of the Fernie Miners' Union, representin.? tho workmen of the Crow's Nest Pass Coal Co., and
connected with District 18 ofU. M.W. of A., I am authorised by the above Local Union members to send to you, intending
-immigrants, a note of warning to beware of men coming over there on the oxpress purpose of bringing: miners out,to
Fernie,-or to be employed by-this Company, Now, as far as, Fernie ia concerned, I will give you.the conditions as they
aro in'this place at the present time. The.mines working to any extent, and,that we have hiade agreements for, (that is
cutting price, etc.), are "so full of men that it was reported in our last Local-Union meeting that'30 men were enquiring
for work" on a certain day (and this since the Company has sent two men to the old land for men), and not one of them
succeeded in getting work. Now can you be persuaded to come to this placo'under such conditions? 'If sensible men, I
think not. - ''You may have friends here that have sent good reports of the wages earned. I am not denying that some
men are, earning good wages, they do the.world over, but all men don't, and 1 say that all men here doii't earn'good
wages. If three dollars was-the minimum wage paid,.and was told so to any Britisher, it.no dbubt looks good to him
•when counted in shillings and pence, but a man earning 6s. per day in the British Isles can live better and under vastly
different/circumstances there than a.man in this country can live on' three dollars, where rent, clothing, and living are so
high, and groceries.and provisions raising all the time, especially in winter when there is sixifeet of snow and the
thermometer ranging anywhere from zero' to 85°, arid has'beeu knowirto go tb 42° below, and you wani to find out how
zero, feels without speaking of going to 85° below. '.If any more is needed to prove this. I refer you to.Mr. Keir. Hardie's
speech at. Vancouver, who should be taken as an authority, being a Labor Memberand here studying labor prohl'ems.   ■
\Yo think if the Company has any good intentions toward the men they intend bringing out here, they would ask for
the co-operation of our Union, and if we found conditions as represented to us, we as a Local of moBtly old country miners
would naturally wish to see you better your condition, and would work with'them in getting the best men into this coal
field, but at the. present ..time andTunder presentconditions we don't see where it will benefit those that may come, with
the prospectB of the winter before' us, arid men with families cannot afford at first, proper winter clothing such as is worn
in this country, arid it is very easy, to come out here,.but not so easy by a long way to get back.       ,   t*      '*.-.-
Now, speaking of Michelmines under the same Company, I may say the conditions there are somewhat different to
Fernie, and about 20 to '24 miles away..  These mines are a little short of men. and if men come to that place, will they*
stay there? \1 have reasons to think that if everything was as it should be, there would not be'an'y' 8hor_tageJ6f_menV*'t!
"MIclSIT"p™67riss^^^ of coarjustTlately 6truck, and~as these :are developing, men are goiri"
from other camps, to this place getting, work as it opens out, and for the next six month* men won't be put on to any
great,extent...    -     - ". ';       " • *> . ■ ,'' ^       .-'.-•■
-. Now the summer is nearly over, those who have got ranches and have not got enough money to keep theii going on
their ranches (and there are hundreds of them) come into the mines for the winter, arid go away again in the spring, and
there is great agitation now about the influx of Orientals—Japs, Chinese; Hindoos—and it seems to us that looking all
round there Is, on the part of the capitalist class, a combined effort to flood this country with cheap labor, and the more
of this class there are the lower, will our wages come. ' Now, as a Britisher, I would earnestly,implore you, as you value
your freedom, to resist the tempter and keep free from the toils of a Company or Combine of this country, and by doing
so you will not only help yourselves but increase thefreedom of those who still have a love for the old lands, but are so
far away in tho West.- -■ * -    ■   '   --       , _-■ •'    . .       ...

. From the following wage schedules, which are the baslB of payment for two years from May, 1907, it will bo seen that
it is impossible for a man working eight hours, bank tb bank, to earn anything like $200 dollars per month,
