That I. What the Striking Machinists
Kaj In Appealing for Aid.
New York, June 10-At the meeting
of the Central Federated Union the
privilege ot the floor was given to a
committee from the International Association ol Machinists before the body.
A. Kunzeltnan, of this committco, said
that the principal point now wai to
keep 20,000 non-union men wbo hud
gon* on strike with the union mon from
rushing back to work.
"There are 60,000 machinists ou
strike for a shorter workday through
the United States," he continued. "Of
these 30,000 belong to the union, and
we hare lo keep the other 20,000 in
line, Should we win, as I hope and
believe, it means * nine-hour work-day
for650,000people throughout theUnited
Slates, a. it will bring tho shorter
workday to all affiliated trades."
Kunselinan added that the fight
w*ul bea long and continued one and
asked the central body to lend its aid
financially and otherwise. It would
require f 150.000 a week, he laid, to
pay strik* benefits for the non anion
The meeting voted lo give $100,000
directly to the machinists andjadopted
a resolution directing the secretary to
write to all the affiliated unions asking
for financial assistance for the strikers.
Toronto, Juno 10���At Saturday'a
���ession of the Internet ional Machinists'
Association a resolution was passed
accepting the declaration issued by the
National Mela! Trades Associations
"We never will accept nny modifies
tion of our demands or resume labor
until the cause Tor which we struggle
is triumphant, and shot ter woikday is
an accomplished fact.

Locomotive, aire Oen.- ns n Gift.
London, June 6-Sir Alfrod Hickman, ex pies dent of the British Iron
Trades Association, lin. written another letter to Lord George Hamilton,
the Indian secretary, concerning locomotives, citing tho reply of Lord
Cromer, the British agent in Egypt,
relative to the consumption of conl by
British and foreign engine* in Egypt.
Lord Cromer uid * definite report
could not'be given for two months, but
Major Johnston thinks the Americans
averago.10 percent, more co.ilthan Ihe
other types,
Sir Alfred comments as follosvs:
'-This, so far, cinfirius the report from
Burmah nnd Assam, nml, if* correct,
would make American engines dear aa
a gift.
"With reference to the claim thai
Americans are superior in chemical
research, I venture to point out that
the achievements it. metallurgy of Hall,
Cort, Neilson, Besalmer, Siemens, Martin, Gilchrist, Thomas, nnd Robert S.
Ashton are not due to American re
surch. I would respectfully invite
you to name any American who could
claim rank w'th them."
Th* Midland Railway, aince the latter half of 1899, has purchased 40 American locomotives. Samuel W. Johnson, superintendent of the locomotive
department ol ths company, says in
the Dally Mail, that the reeults of six
months' teats made with standard
Midland goods engint* In the same
conditions, .bowed lha extra working

Montreal, June 10.���A private letter
from London, received '.hi. morning,
bring* an interesting rumor, which
may, if it proves correct, interfere with
the programme laid down tor the tour
of Their Royal Highnesses, the Dake
and Duchess of Cornwall and York
through the Dominion. The letter
stairs that it i* currently reported in
society circles, thst Her Royal Highness is expecting oli addition to ber
family, and that thit inieiesilng ovens
i* expected to lake place about the time
when Ihe Royal party is acbeduled to
reach Canada. Shonld this prove to
be correct, it is quite possible that the
Duke of Cornwall and York will have
to make a tranioontiffentnl trip wl'li*
out thr Duchess, who may havo to remain either at Qitel-s-o or Ottawa,
until His Royal Hijjhsss-ss' return.

From Our Owa Crrasnondent.
Palli.er, June 13-Ass Commissions
go there is little hope that tin. Oriental
Commission wtll cause anv di,nunition
in the flow of the "yellow wave" upon
our shores. As a rule, politicians
tread on the heels of capitalists in their
servile obeisance to th. gteat god of
mammon. And, judging from* the
composition of the commission, two,
at least, are politicians of a pronounced
type, one being a candidate at tl.e lass
Dominion election and th* o'.her a well
known aspirant Iar political favors.
With all deference to thein, there was
important evidence to be gaii.ed from
Japs and Chinamen in regard to the
tribute they paid out of their wages to
the foreman and other officials of companies, but it was not solicited. Not
likely that these foremen and officials
would proffer any evidence tending to
lessen their revennes from their poorly
paid employees. Mr. Foley, as a labor
ing man, must have known of these
malpractices but he wns as dumb us an
oyster. It ia well known that agents
��re employed in tho Orient to induce
these barbarians to come to B. C. for
their is money in carrying them here,
and in taking their ashes back when
they die. While the Oriental quostion
is sub judice further comment must l>o
delayel until the verdict is rendered,
then a roasting of the Government and
the Commission will he be highly in
order if justice be not done to B. C. in
abating a nuisance that threatens its
physical and moral welfare. Loss of
faith in the Laurier administration on
the Chinese question makes one turn
appealingly to the Government of British Columbia, which recently has so
defiantly and gallantly withstood
further encroachments of the insatiate
Ottawa octopus. More power to Chief
Dunsmuir and his braves !
Mr. Samuel Eschelmaun, of Yale,
Michigan, ia registered at '.he Hotel De
Bunk. Ho has a family of seven
daughter, whom he will bring here
this summer. Some of the bachelors
are sprucing up a bit and are quite
friendly with Samuel.
Five hundred snd twenty-five logs
made into lumber in ten hours gives a
person an idea of the rapidity wilh
which the forest is diminishing in this
locality. This province has n greater
timber area than all the rest of the
Dominion combined. It. ought to be
conserved fur our own use and profit,
for tho day is fast approaching when
75 per cent, of the lumber required
abroad will bo sought for in this province. The United States and eustern
Canada, by a careful estimate, have
ant ten years' supply in sight. An
export duty on lumber would seem to
be a businesslike proposition in view of
the large population accumulating in
the Territories where there will lies
spl.ndld market for the B. C. product

FRIDVY, JiiiM 11*  1901.
We desire to make brief reference
this wck to a letter in our Inst issue
signed "Merchant.* I'- contains a
suggestion which ought to take prac
lical shape in the near [mure. Tliat
thore is a serious drain ou tho roiourcca
of this town b.v parties sliding money
away for goods that are kept in stock
hy local dealers is a fuct only too well
known and felt. To find a remedy (or
this evil is not easy, es|iecially In tho
case of buying from departmental
stores. If the town were incorporated,
by-laws could bo pnssod putting such
n heavy tax on itinerant peddlars thut
they would find it bettor to keep away,
but this cannot he dono in lhe case of
eastern cheap John departmental stores.
Of course, people havo u right to spend
their money where they think Ihey can
got the most for it. But we think
every resident of Golden ought to think
of his obligation as a citizsn as well as
an individual, and take pride in the
growth of the town.
Golden has good stores and the man
or woman who cannot get material to
suit thoir tastes in one' ot them must
le very fuslidious indeed. As to prices
Oolden, on the whole, is ten |,er cent,
cheaper than either Kamloops or
Ravelstoke. Clothing, made to order,
can bo got here at Toronto prices, wi'h
skilled workmanship as the j.ropot ao
oompanlinont. Dry goods of all kimls
uro especially reasonable in price aud
tho stocks are large and well selected,
As to provisions we do not believe
there is another town in the interior of
the province that famishes food stuffs
is cl.eai.ly us Golden.
We hope our townspoojile will lake
into full consideration lhe claims of
loiial merchants to entire patronage
��� and also consider some of the difficulties Uio.v have to contend iigainst, and
above all things " Do unto others ns

Editor Golden Era :
Sir, ���In last week's Era I read an
article signed ���'Merchant,'' which the
writer may haye meant for a suggestion to his fellow-morehants, but was
in reality a complaint against Iho people of Golden for buying goods from
outside firms, which, he claims, can
bo procured in town. Oue article particularly bo mentioned i9 clothing.
Do tho merchants themselves or do
their clerks patronize our home tailors?
When thev want jowelrv or watch repairs do ihey give their trade io the
jeweler we have here ? Do ihey get all
their printing done at home? I think,
too, that if "Merchant" could get a
peep into the express agent's hooks he
would find that the ladies of Golden
buy mote goods of oulside firms than
do lhe gentlemen. But they are not
entirely to blame. Thero ar* dozens
of articles in ivery-day uso which they
cannot get from any of lhe merchants
here. They do not exp.ct tha merchants to keep a stock ot fancy goods
lika Moran, of Montreal, or Gateau, of
Toronto, but when they do get a |iiece
of good material from a local merchant they do not want to seo it every
day in lite on half a dozen others.
Who would blstin the merchant for
importing his goods from European
firms in preference to buying from
Canadian wholesale houses if hu can
get what he wants aud gel better value
for his money. And the customer will
also deal whero ho can get the best
value for hia money.
'���Merchant" also speaks ot lhe merchant* ordoring what is wanted, and
gelling it iu lime to fill the customer's
order. For instance, one lady gets a
merchant to order for her a |sieco ol
goods, and it will take frem leu lu
fifteen days to get here. Her neighbor
sends lo Vuncouvei' foi samples, gets
her goo Is and has it made up, before
iho merchant gets the invoice ofthe
goods he has ordered.
"Merchant" apparently forgot .our
milliner when lie mentioned the other
business firms. Before she arrived
here, many of the ladiss in town sent
to the Stale, as well as to Eastern Ontario and even to England for their
millinery. Now they are I'erfoclly
satisfied to buy Lore, audi think it
would be sate to say that not more
than threo ladies hav. patronized out
side firms, in tbis line. It tho milliner
cu satisfy lhe people of Golden, wby
ciiuiut lho merchants do so too?

OT "Oat" How aril and Dlek Northwuy
TIip following letter is published in
t'.is Calgary Herald and will be ot groai
interest to all residents ot the Coluin
bia valley. Letters in the Winnipeg
Freo Press to Col. Evans, trom General
Alder.on, the officer who took General
Hilton's command in South Africa,
and was Howard's commanding officer,
give substantially tl.e same details of
the cowardly act. If that Boer is cip-
turod alive there are a number of
North ways'a friends hers.' who would
like to bo on a jury to try him for
" As it is so long since I heard from
you (I have not heard since I left Calgary in tho beginning of 1900) I think
I will just drop you a liue to tell you
that I am alivo and doing Well, and I
thought possibly you would like to
know all about Gat Howard's death.
"Well, the Major (Howard) was sent
oat by Gen. Alderson in charge of a
small column to co-operate with another column under tho General himself. Well, owing to the fog being
very thick that day the operations
were postponed, and Major Howard,
who was in front of his mon some distance, saw some wagons in a hollow
and ho went down to burn them, and
with lilin were his orderly, Sergeant
Northway, a Calgary boy who came
with mn, (the young (ellow we culled
' the British Columbia toff') and Capt.
Boattie of Gen. Alderson'* staff, who
had just arrived with a message from
the General, aud a Kaffir scout.
Howard commenced looking over the
contents of the wagons to see if thero
was anything iu ihem he ought to save
for the publiu use, wben some Boers
who were lying on the rocks on a kopje
close by, opened lire on him.
"They immediately took cover under
the wagons and the fire was, I believe,
terrific. Capt. Beattia gallantly weut
out and got on his horse und tried to
get away for support. Ha got no dis
tanco before bis horse was killed under
him. Ha then crawled along in tho
grass and eventually got away and
brought back assistance.
"In the meantime Howard seeing
thnt nothing could bo done, and after
hehad bees, shot through tlio wrist
(we presume) thvew up bia hands und
ordered Northway lo do lhe same.
Then one ot the Boers cams down lo
disarm ihem, ami now, listeu! Howard ordered Northway to go and meet
this Boer und give up nis arms, which
he did, and after he hud given up his
arms the cur ot.. Dutchman shot him
dead - murder No. I * and wns not
satisfied wilh thut, but shot him
through the head after ho had killed
"He then went over to where Howard was, and disarmed him, and rob
bed him also, taking bis wntch and
money nnd keys, his rifle nud his revolver, and then deliberately shot hiin
dead by putting tho rifle in his mouth
and blowing off the top of hi* head.
Murder No. 3,
'The Kaffir scout who was there
then got up, and the Dutchman shot
him twice, breaking both hips and
thinking he had killed bim. He left
us our men were then coining up and
the. Dutchman did not. fancy loo acquaintance. Ho, however, wa* shot
in the bi.ik whilst goiug up the hill
but got away.
"Luckily lho Kaffir boy did uot die
and was able to give au account of the
whole business and the same title wss
told by some Boer prisoners who saw
this liappjii an.l whom wo afterwards
cup ured. Up to now, I am sorry to

Canadian Shipper..
(From Tho 1). C. Miuis.g Record.)
The efforts ofthe representatives ot
the Silver lead mining industry, who
went to Ottawa this spring, have been
eminently successful, and the Dominion
Government    hai,    in    consequence,
agreed to bonus the manufacture of pig
lead ore in Canadian Territory.   Tbis
bo.nns is arranged as follows: f 5 a ton
Ior every  ton ot refine.I lead produced
duriug 1902; $4 during 1903 ; S3 during
1904**2 during 1936,andjl during 1906.
This bonus is a much needed encourage
ment to the silver-lead industry and if
it* is sufficient   (or  the   purpose for
which it is designed,  uamelv to encourage the home manufacture of pig
lead as opposed to the export of crude
lead ore, it has been given precisely
at the proper time.   The silver-lead
industry of   British Columbia must
either at the present time givo rise to
the manufacture of pig lead in Canada
itself or undergo very severe and unnecessary restrictions in its development.   The cbangtd conditions which
have brought about thia condition of
affairs are partly due to natural and
partly to artificial causes.
A great change has taken place in
the United States as a lead-producing
country    during  the   past  eighteen
months. Piior to that time the United
States could not produce as much lead
as It required, and was consequently a
lead importing country   The protective
tariff of the United State, was so arranged as to favour the importation of
such lead as it required in excess of
its own production in the form of crude
ore or bullion.   This,  of course,  had
two effects.   It, preserved iu the United
Slates   the  manufacturing industries
of smelting and refilling all the lead
required,  for home consumption.   At
the same time it acted as a bonus upon
the   shipmeats ot   crude ore   into the
United States from countries adjacent
to its borders, of which British Columbia is one.   Tl.e difference between
the duty on refilled lund and  tho duty
ou crude ore was a difference ill favour
of the British Columbia miner, bin at.
llie same time a difference against lhe
ss/JUritish Columbia smelter and refiner.
Just so soon, however,  as lhe United
Stales was al.lo lo produce more lead
than il could uo. siting and obliged to
tiud u foreign market for a surplus,
this bonus io slu fo.eign miner of lead
ore wus bound tu disappear.   In other
wolds   il.e United   S ales   could   no!
longer afford to pay the New York price
fur refined lead,   for lead  contained In
foreign ore and il.o.i after refining it
cell that lead at the world price, when
the New York price was maintained
by a higher tariff on lead than applied
to the lead in crude ore imported into
the United  States.   This change in
market conditions in the United States
removed the bonus whicli that country
an I Refining company  has been consolidated to prevent.    Whether it can
do so or not is a question rather beyond
the scope of thia article.    But, certainly before it ia proved that it cannot,
the American Smelting and Refining
company can exert a very  potent and
disastrous influence on.the development
of   the   silver-lend mining   industry.
Naturally its first point of attack in
endeavoring to regulate the ind istry
in North America would be those di.
triots   on   which United   State, was
formerly   dependent   for   supplies   of
crude  lead  ore.   It   was  absolutely
necessary,   for tho reasons given   in
the forepart of this artiole, that the
price of lead should be marked down
against British Columbia producers of
lead ore,   that the  basis of  payment
should b.   transferred from the   New
York to the London price; and it waa
also essential tor the furtherance of
the policy marked out for itself by tho
American Smelting and Refining company that the cost of treatment should
be marked up.   But the very fact that
this  has been done, while it subjects
silver-lead mining to a double discrimination in this Province,  provides a
(urther inducement tor the establishment of   the smeltering and refining
industry on Canadian soil.   The question of competing against a trust is
merely a queition of owning the sources
of the raw material, being able to reach
the market, and procuring the capiir.l
necessary to extract the raw material
and manufacture it.   But of thesetliree
factors the first is by far the most important.   In British Columbia we own
a silver lead producing  area besid.s
which the whole similar area in the
United States sinks into absolute insig
nificance.   British Columbia may be a
rugged and mountainous country, but
it is not wise to forgethat these nioiiti*
tains contain the most  numerous and
largest deposits of the precious, aud
base metals known in ihe world.
Emancipated from the hampering
conditions imposed on their development by the exigencies of an American
corporation and poisessod of ready
access to the market ot the world it is
much more likely in tho evont thnt the
silver-load mines of British Columbia
will dominate the American  Smelting
