25,000 MEN
On Strike In syn-.co.-A Complete Tie-
San Francisco, July 30.���Twenty-
five thousand union men are on strike
thii morning along the waterfront of
San Francisco, and if the cessation of
work ordered by the City Front Federation continues effective, it will practically mean the doting of the port
during the continuence of the strike.
Although a large number of man
were hired to fill tha places of the
striken, practically no merchandise
has been moved. No dilturbances have
been reported.
Owing to the Strike inaugurated today, the business section of the city
is completely tied up, and indications
are that general business stagnation
will ensue.
The labor tioubfct reached their cul-
miiutttMlate last nl^ht when the City
Front Federation ordered a general
siriks* oa tkt docks of the San Fran*
ciscd, Oakland, Mission Rock and Port

London, July SO���At the first meeting of the creditors to-day, subsequent
to a meeting of the rhaaehohlers of the
of the Standard Exploration Company,
one of the mining concerns known aa
the Whiltaker-Wright Oroup, the
official receiver made such astonishing
revelations that he drew from Ihe excited shareholders demands for the
lynching of the persons implicated.
The receiver said lhat the estimated
assets were farcical. The fourteen
mines valued at ��767,000 had earned
nothing. The company started witb a
cash capital of ��500,000, but the directors took little interest in the company's mines and devoted themselves
to stock exchange speculation. "And
that's where your money is gone,"
said the receiver. " Two hundred and
twenty-eight thousand pounds was
lost in differences, in Lake Erie speculation, and ��235,000 was lost in differences in Caledonian copper. The
total profits from speculation are ��118,-
000, and the losses are ��536,000."
"And these are still at large?"
shouted another shareholder.
"Yes, they are," came the answer
and immediately -.hose present at the
meeting rose to their feet shouting,
"Lynch them!" Ic was an exciting
moment for Lord Pelham-Clinton, Oen.
Oough-Halthorp and others who were
attending the meeting A storm of
angry cries and hisses broke out, and
the receiver finally succeeded in calming the shareholders by promising
them every protection possible.
Durban, Natal, July 30-Details received here of what first seemed an
ordinary skirmish between a British
column and a Boer commando, near
Nqtiita, on July 28, show that a hard
all day fight occurred, in which the
British narrowly escaped tl.e loss of a
Kun ol the 67 Field battery. Four
hundred Boers repeatedly rushed the
British position, killing Major Ed*
Wnrsls and Gunner Carpenter. The
gun was limbered up, and taken ut a

fire.   Five British were.killed.';'.', ;   .' .

voted in favor of the strike. The foi
lowing unions were represented, com
prising all the workers on the waterfront: Sailor's union of the Pacific;
lour local union* of longshoremen;
Marine Men; Brotherhood of Teamsters;
Ship and Steamboat Joiners; Packers,
Porters, Warehousemen, Shipping
clerks. Piledrivers and Bridge Builders,
Hoisting Engineers, Steam and Hot-
water Fitters and Coal Teamsters.
The decision to inaugurate a general
strike, which is a direct outcome of
the lockout of the teamsters, will havs
for its iinmediateeffect the cessation ol
all labor in and around ths great docks
about the bay of San Francisco. The
Sand Teamsters' union and the Oakland Teamsters' union also ordered a
This will make a total of ever 25,000
union workmen who have stopped
their work since the middle of May
last, divided as follows: City Front
Federation, comprising fourteen organizations, 15,000 men; Machinists and
Ironworkers, 7,000, Cooks and Waits rs
1,500; Sand Teamsters, 600; Oakland
Teamsters, 1000.
The tie-up will be complete it the
plans of the labor unions are successful. They hope to slop the loading,
aud even to prevent the moving of
shi|is that are almost ready for departure.
Unless the proprietors and managers
are able to secure sufficient non-union
help to load and maun their vessels,
the strike will jitactioally mean tl.e
closing of the port and the suspension
of business in the wholesale assd maim
faciuring sections of San Francisco
and Oakland.

Palliser, July 31-Sheriff  Redgrave

capacity as constable.    His flrst visit
was to investigate a case ol burglarious

was te apprehend  a young Swede for
common assault committed on an Italian.    No developments have been made
inthefirstcaseand  very  little information retarding it  ia to he obtained ;
indeed, so mysteriously  ia the whole
affair enshrouded lhat It  may  require
the servias of a ''Sherlock Holmes" to
unfold.   The second   case   was easy.

Italian  brandishing  ai  axe near hia
vital   legions.    Both   appeared before

Mr. Boil well, iu a letter in Uie Colonist, sia'es that the appropriation for

Among these are lhe Rossland Miner
aud tho Nelson Miner, whose energies
by the way are just now divided iu
attacking the Gove-N-nneiit and lighting
the Miiiers'  unions of Kiotenuy,
It is sail that if tho Government
.vere sincere in its prosiuit course, it
wonld have provided a specific sum in
ihe estimates fur the purpose of a
survey, and is now for sinister motives
abusing its prerogative iti using money
uot so intended. It is well kuown Unit]

natural to suppose that an,/  company
Dominion Government did not pjrani
tho suhsl Iy we do not know. As the
friends of Mr Bod well are in powor at
Ottawa, and ho professes to be in thoir
confidence, lie should be in a position
io tell us. If the Provincial Government was willing to extend u fair
���dinre of aid and the building of the
Coast * Xoute it uy line is dependent for
further aid from the Domiuiuu Government, on what grounds aro the Provincial Government io blame? Bj
what species of legal sophistry or log.c

ihe factsV Perhaps Mr Bodwell hns
some knowledge which he hns so fur
wit held. If he will be phased to en*
lighten the public wo shall undertake
to further examine his reasons .and his

Wo must congratulate the Winnipeg Free Press on its issue of Saturday,
July 27. The paper was made up of

At lirst even she is tglud to have her

wants rest ansl qssiet at any price. And
so the foundation for marital misery is
often laid in ill-health.
But when the housewife is healthy
and strong she finds in her day's duties
only a sufficient outlet for lier energy.
She looks forward all day to the evening

Sir,���As ynu are no doabt aware,,at

committee was appointed tp ascertain
definitely the qualification for a voter
in this sohool district. When tbis
committee met I made a propositi of
settlement on tl.e following lines I,
That tke present dispute was a waste
of time and energy ; that it was creating a bad feeling amongst those who
should work together for the good of the
ilistri.t, and that a compromise was in
every way desirable, i    ������
That the Department, of Education
had already decided that, aschool.was
to be built on the south side of. the
Kicking Horse and instructed the
Trustees to select a site. .
That the only reasonable objections
to the site selected wero���that.. it.was
further away t han necessary, that three
lots were insufficient, that money
would have to be spent in clearing the
street and building a sidewalk which
could mora advantageously be spent
otherwise, and that thechiltlren would
have to break roads in the witter. '
That these' objections could all be
done away with by compromising on
a site of six lots in either block 7 or 14,
and all concerned, would be entitled to
credit for securing efirst class location
thus leaving the post office to be looked : within 140 feet of the Fort Steel road

To inconvenience the public and delay freight, express, mails, etc , is of
no account with the ('. P. R. To endanger the lives of t'le traveling pub
lie is mere childjslay lo thein. The
alien labor law is deliberately ignored;
from $5 to f 10 a day is being offered lo
men in an effort to disrupt lhe Truckmen'. Union, an underpaid class ol men;
iho railway officials lie wilh impunity;
theit despatches are rot, and the com*
puiiv is spending the people's good
money to buck the interests of the
people. Bu*. all to no avail. Tl.e
strikers have the practical syinjuitby
ot tl.e people and will win out eventually, if they stand pat. They haven't
much to lose, anyway, but organized
labor will not see them lose.- Lurdeait

Sir,���Wheu the South African war
was so much talked about tbere used
lo be a conundrum going the rounds
"Why would it have been better to
have seut Queen Victoria to South
Africa to settle tha war than Lord
Robert! ?* The answer was: ''Because
a sovereign it worth 20 bobt."
Mow, while we see . the joke and
know that women should, keep out of
war, we think that. in tjie case of the
South Golden war, the wome/.,should
he allowed to settle j.the queflion, because ir is the,children's interesss that
should be considered, and womfn know
more about children than men.
