Hill Buys the Mines.
A special to the Nelson
Miner from Vancouver on
Sunday last says:
The announcement was
made here today on the
best authority that James J
Hill of the Great Northern
railway, and J. P. Morgan and,
J. D. Rockefeller with other
members of the American
smelter trust, had purchased a
proprietary interest in the
Crow's Nest coal mines. The
deal was closed during the
current week and though it
has been on the tapis for
some time, is more extensive
than was first thought. It is
given out by parties interested
that the Dominion government is certainly counted upon to give a charter to a railway to the boundary line so
that transportation by the
Great Northern to American
smelters will be absolutely
controlled.
A Montana Cutoff.
The survey of the proposed
line to connect the Great
Northern with thc Crows'
Nest coal fields in east Kootenay, has begun in earnest, says
the Spokesman Review. A
party of Great Northern engineers from St. Paul, with
assistants.iml supplies.arrived
at Kalispell recently, and are
now at work running a line
from Jennings. Mont., to the
international boundary. The
people of Kalispell have been
confident of securing the
smithem terminus of the proposed road on account of the
alleged superiority of the
route from that point to To-
b.iQco Plains via the Stillwater,
but thc fact that thc company
has authorized a survey from
Jennings, has placed Kalispell
on thc anxious seat.
The surveying party has
taken a complete equipment,
and A. Guthrie, thc railroad
contractor, is going over the
route with them, says the Kalispell Inter-Mountain. It
does not follow that the Jen-
ningsroute has been definitely
derided on. but it conclusively
shows that the Kalispell route
has not been. The Jennings
route would have the advantage of several miles in distance, but that of itself would
be: more than offset by the
greater cost of construction,
if thc report of the chara. ter
nf thc work is correct. Hut it
has been suggested as one
factor in favor of tin-Jennings
route that the right of way up
ihr Kootenai would cost the
railroad nothing, while for a
. ..nsider.ible dist.iiu >• out by
Kalispell route it would be
cxpensixr*
This it is belcivcd would go
a long way towards paying
the added expense of the construction of the Jennings
line, and might decide the
question in favor of that
route. Another suggestion is
made that thc railroad company would decide in favor of
the Kalispell route in preference to any other, if Kalispell
would offer the company right
of"**ay to Tobacco Plains, free
■f v.wst. 'Tjie road is going to I view.

be built, and in all probability
at once.
The negotiations between
the Crow's Nest pass coal
mine owners and the Great
Northern, for a line into the
section where the collieries
are located, and the application of the latter road for a
charter has suddenly infused
a great deal of activity into
the management and policy
of the Canadian Pacific which
has all along enjoyed a monopoly of this trade. Announcements have appeared
from the general offices in
Montreal, of the inauguration
of a policy of activity, which
is as surprising as it is unprecedented. Fifteen locomotives have been ordered exclusively for use on this branch
and a large amount of rolling
stock is expected to be ready
in a few weeks.
"We are not much of a
sport." says a Kansas editor,
"but when we meet a cinch in
the road we recognize it. We
had made the following bargain with a friend yesterday:
We were to stand at a given
point for half an hour and
watch the ladies who passed.
For every lady who reached
her hand back to see if her
skirt was gaped or tuck it under her belt, we were to receive a nickel. For every one
who failed to do so in walking a block wc were to give
him a dime. Wc got sixty-
iwn nickels from him and
gave him one dimc-a lady
with both arms off passed by."

Doubt   Th.t Tha  Camp
Have a Railroad
Talk ol the railroad to Republic is
plentiful, and amid the various rumors
there seems sufficient evidence to war-
i.int an almost positive assurance that
thu road will he built thia season, and
that actual construction will he under
way hy the time spring opens.
A mining man closely identified with
operations in Republic, stated that the
managenv-nt of prominent Republic
mines had definite and final assurance
that dirt wouid bellying on the line within six weeks.
There is also cumulative evidence
that such will be (he case. A large
patty ol Great Northern suveyors is
making the final locations along the
route Irom Cascade, B. 0., to Marcus,
ou the Spokane Falls and Northern, and
it appears that this work is to be rushed
through with all ipeed. The settlement
of damages to Indian allotments along
the surveyed lineol theCreat Northern's
Wenatchee route is reported to be rapidly nearing completion, having been under way since Feburary (5, and other
preparations in the north would indicate
the immediate commencement ol large
operulions.
The question ol a route to Republic is
probably settled, though nothing official
can be learned of it. The Republic &
Kettle River company, backed by the
Warner Miller syndicate, surveyed a
line said to be the only good route ap
the Kettle river and Curlew creek, and
work on this line was carried to the
mapping o( individual allotments on (he
right of way. Since then nothiog has !
been done though tbe maps arc io the j
hands of the Indian department. This
unit.* is considered the most desirable,
and it is thought probable that the in- :
action on it lus been cauicd by h.*_.t.
imn*. iniii the Gteat Notthern f*ir the !
charter. The present activity of the
t .if.it Northern indicates thai a route—
probably thia one—has bun secured,
and thc key to the northern country at
last obtained by J. J. Hill.
A New Smelting  Process
ores placed in the crucibles has been almost complete. In its notion lhe (lux
removed q8 per cent ofthe metals from
the crude ores, without any piior crushing. This has never been known before
in the history of mining. The specimens
ol copper and other metals that have
been taken from the chemical baths are
declared to be absolutely pure and in
need of no further treatment, while thc
actual operation of reducing them has
averaged about forty minutes to thc
charge
STAY AWAY FROM MONTANA
An appeal to Organized Labor From
Butte City.
The following letter from Butte City
Union, definitely explains the conditions
of labor in that vicinity, and the various
methods adopted by employers to squelib
the efforts of organized lalior lor a
shorter work day, It is to be hoped
that the appeal will he recognized by
union men everywhere, to the end that
the labor of Butte   m»y   ultimately   be
"Another feature of lhe experiments  succeasful:—
that has developed is the peculiarly Iree
action of tbe metals where tbe ores that
are used are of a compound character
containing two or more metals. In
such cases lhe new process has caused
the various forms of metal te link lo
thc bottom of the crucible, the heaviest
finding a place at the bottom, and the
next heaviest resting above it. Three
and four different metals have thus liecn
found in layers after the dross has been
removed from the molten mass and thc
crucible allowed to cool. The separation
of the layers of different metals is a matter eaid to be very simple and in no way
does thc one interfere wilh the purity
of thc other. Those who have control of
the experiments that have been made
decline to discuss the details ot the process lor the present, but admit that the
formation of a company is going on, and
that negotiations (or the control of thc
prue.**.!-. have li.'i n begun witb them by
several mining companies.
"One of the chemists connacted with

To Organized Lab r:
Employment agents, unscrupulous
representatives of capital, arc advertising for laborers to come to Montana.
This work on the part of such agents
and representatives is misleading, in
view of the (act that the labor market
here is overcrowded, and any new
comers in search of employment will run
the risk uf deprivation and suffering in
this western country for waut of employment.
To emphasize, remain away from
Butte and Montana, uuless you have
sufficient funds to return from where
you came, or can go to some other field
where opportunists are presented lor
employment. Don't listen to employment agents aod be mislead thereby.
The coatemplated change to eight

of men now employed, and should it do
so in any way, there are plenty of mea
who bave had experience who are now

II reports from Pittsburg are correct
thc smelting and refining problem is
likely lo be solved by a discovery said
to have been lately made. Successful
experiments have been made with thc
new process, which smells and refines

COMPEL  ARBITRATION
There is one plank in the
platform of the Independent
Labor party which it behooves
• very workingman, whether
he be a member of organized
labor or not. to endeavor to
secure legislation upon, and
there is no better time to begin than now. Wc refer to
that plank calling for compulsory arbitration.
It in a fact that must be apparent to the majority of
thinking people that the only
proper and just   method of
dun: disputes and differences between employer and
employe is by arbitration.
This method has been repeatedly in evidence in
Canada and in many
other parts of the world. In
many cases the action has not
been compulsory. Now, if
employers of their own free
*ill resort to arbitration there
certainly can be no harm in
the passage of a law that
would compel all. the few who
might object included, to abide
by its provisions. Just think
of the good that could be accomplished by such a law?
The employe as well as the
employer would be compelled
to submit to the findings of
those appointed to arbitrate,
trouble that has iu many cases
led to bloodshed would be
avoided.andjthe losshnancially
to both would be reduced to
a minimum.
Union   men   in    particular
bhould give this matter  some
thought. The Provincial and
Dominion legislative bodies
are now in session and there
is no more propitious time for
launching such a move. Take
it up in your meetings and instruct your sitting member to
use his best efforts to secure
the passage of an act that will
give equal rights to employer
and employe, that will mean a
continuance of prosperity for
every camp in British Columbia. There is no time to be
lost. Let immediate action
be taken so that such good as
will surely follow an enactment of compulsory arbitration may be realized at the
earliest possible date.
SHOULD   INCREASE.
The time is ripe, or should
be at least, in Rossland when
an advance in wages should be
granted the underground laborers in our mines, commonly spoken of as "muckers."
These men receive at present
but $2.50 per day which, since
the advent of the idle Sunday
in particular, is barely sufficient for their needs, especially if he is possessed of a family. Many men arc led to accept such a position in the
hope that they may soon be
given a change at mining.with
the accompanying increase in
wages, but such promotions
are seldom made. Their work
is arduous and is also dangerous. They receive but the
same amount as is paid common labor upon thc surface
and all will join with us when
we say that thc occupation of
the underground laborer
should certainly entitle him
to more. We do not think
even the mine managers would
deny this fact if they would
but give it a thought. A raise
given voluntarily, however
small, would be greatly appreciated by those who are forced
to "muck" eight hours each
day.
DEPORTED.
Telegrams have been published in most of thc eastern
and coast papers during thc
week announcing the deportation from Rossland of a
number of alien workmen who
were employed on the Red
mountain spur of thc C. P. R.
These men were contracted
with in the States and brought
here without other thought on
their part than to secure employment. This they were
refused by the government
because of the fact that their
employer secured their services outside the Dominion.
We have no objection to
such action on thc part of the
Dominion officials, but what
we do object to is that the
party responsible for the aliens
coming here arc in no wise
made to suffer for their act,
or at least they have not been
mentioned in connection with
the affair. Why should not
the man who contracted with
these aliens, knowing at the
same time that it was a breach
of the law, be made to suffer?
He is the person, in our opinion, who should beheld liable.
There appears to be no sense
in beginning at the tail of an
offense to prevent its recurrence. Go to the head. Stop
the contractor from going
outside and there will not be
need to deport anyone.
There has been notice served in the Dominion parliament of an amendment to the
alien act, having the object
mentioned in view. This
should be passed. And not
only should the amendment
pass but care should be taken
that it does not conflict with
our international treaties. Let
it be a law, when amended,
that will stand a test in the
supreme court, after which let
it be vigorously enforced.
The coal miners of Scho-
field, Utah, voted for the full
dinner pail. They are getting
it. They have struck against
starvation wages, and the
company says it has nothing
to arbitrate, and the men
whom they elected to office
have the camp full of armed
deputies. If they had elected
men to office who believed
that the public should own
and operate the coal mines,
they wpuld then have been
treated as citizens. But they
are getting just what they
voted for, even if they did not
have sense enough to know
it. Maybe they will know it
next time.—Appeal to Reason.
Thc mines at Wellington
have been closed. This also
means, in all probability, the
end of the little city of Wellington, which owed its existence entirely to the mines.
A measure has been introduced in the legislature providing for disincorporation
and the appointment of a receiver to wind up the corporate interests of the town.
The first system of municipal telephones established
in England has just been inaugurated atTunbridge Wells
with 400 customers.

New Zealand's Progress-
Mr. J. K. Collins, Ruskin
colony, is now in New Zealand
and is writing much valuable
information for the Coming
Nation. Following are extracts from one of his late letters:
One of the pleasant features of a railway ride In this
country is witnessing the children Hocking to the train in
going to or returning from
school. They get on the train
as if they owned it and no one
ask them for tickets—they
ride free of charge. The roads
are all narrow guage and
many of them are verv winding and have heavy grades,
as the country is usually hilly
and mountainous. Stations
are provided at frequent intervals and each one is a postollice, telegraph and telephone
office and a savings bank as
well as railways and express
station, as the government
conducts all these classes of
business. Think of the saving
in office expenses by this
system and you will be able to
comprehend why the railroad
fares and parcel post are
much cheaper here than in
the United States or Canada.
In spite of the greater expense
of construction and equipment (if railways in this land of
high wages and short hours
the railway passenger rate is
only three-fourths of the average price in the States, while
the parcels post and telegraph
rates arc much cheaper.
A telegram of 12   words   is
sent to any part of New  Zea
land by simply affixing to it a
6d stamp (12 cents).
Lines run most of thc metal. *d wagon roads as well as
along the railroad, so that
every country postoffice furnishes its patrons with the accommodations of bank and
telephone facilities. The wagon roads are a marvel for so
young a country.
Thc government builds
many of these roads—con-
si rut tinn them with no greater grade than one to twelve.
In other cases the government loans the local boards
one-half the funds necessary
for construction, at a low rate
of interest, payable in installments covering a period of 26
years; the other half is appropriated by the government.
These roads graded and metaled by CO-Operative laborers,
who take thc contract in suitable sections, in gangs of
about 12 men each, who divide their earning! equally.
I am now in a wonderful
dairy section and the home of
co-operation. Before co-operative butter and cheese factories and creameries were
established, the farmer was
fortunate enough to receive
eight cents a pound for butter; now he realizes iS or 19
cents and has dispensed with
the drudgery of skimming,
churning and marketing. He
also has skimmed milk to
raise calves and pigs upon.
It is a common thing for a
diary of 25 cows to bring its
owner $1000 per season, besides the calves and pigs
grown on the milk. It is necessary to feed the stock   very
little, if any, hay or grain.
Some feed a small amount
of hay and root crops for a
short time in the winter.
The farmers have also organized a co-operative union,
which has grown into almost
the dimensions of a department store—including groceries, tools, machinery, dry
goods, medicines, harness,
bakery, etc. Their store covers nearly half a block. As a
sample of what this union has
clone for them I might mention that bread, which formerly sold for four cents a pound
has been reduced by the union
to two and one-quarter cents.
On this, and all of the other
business, there is a handsome
prolit, the shareholders receiving returns of about five per
cent on all bills purchased,
and an additional dividend of
eight per cent on  their stock.
Encouraged by their sue
cess in the dairy and mercantile lines, the farmers last year
organized a co-operative bacon factory, which has resulted in giving them better prices
for their hogs, without the
necessity of slaughtering ihem
at home.
They even get their meat
for their own use slaughtered
and cured at the factory, and
few farmers' wives now bake
their own bread. The unskilled laborer here is sure of
work at a much better wage
than in any other country I
have ever seen, but I can not
recommend skilled laborers,
clerks, typewriters, teachers,
etc., to come here. The children of the colony are educated by the state and those
passing the best examinations
are taken into the civil service.
They are naturally and
rightfully given the preference in all the lighter occupations also.
The man who wants a good
home and is willing to work
hard at common lalior to secure it, New Zealand offers
splendid chances, but the man
who expects to grow rich from
the labors of others, or who is
looking for a "soft snap" will
do best to stay away. It is
not a land of millionaires and
tramps.
You Are the Union,
Trouble at the Van Anda.
On Thursday the Van Anda Mining company sent up
60 Japanese on the steamer
Coquitlam to work in the
mines. However, when the
"little brown men*' found how
the company was fixed they
refused to go to work. Two
machine men were asked to
take Jap helpers, but declined
to obey instructions. A strike
has been declared, which will
last as long as the Japanese
remain at the mines. Matters
are all right at Marble Bay.
Thc fjuccn shaft and Cornell
owe a lot of money to the
men.—Independent.

Addrees W. W.  Ooty, Secretary.
A trade union can never remain stationary. It is obliged
either to advance, to prosper
or to go backward, to perish.
It shares the fate of every organism here below. The
question is to make an active
and intelligent whole out of
the diversity of temperaments
and talents of which an organization is composed. The
principles of trades unions.be-
ing few and simple, easily understood by all, are the spring
which is bound to incite to activity every available force
among the membership,
You believe to acquit your
duty by paying so much per
month into your treasury and
by electing your officers every
six months—far from it! You
are, first of all. to watch for
the welfare of your union.
This is one of the highest duties duties of every member.
In th 1 second place you are to
participate in the work to be
performed, if it is but by your
advice, by attending your
meeting.
The union is you; you are
your union. It will be exactly
what you make out of it. You
complain that your union has
no power, that it cannot protect you. Are you not ashamed to talk in this manner? Go
an.i ng your fellow craftsmen;
conduct them into our ranks.
Be on the spot at the election
of officers; turn every incapa- matter of employment is so
ble or dishonest aspirant   off. i simplified that the difficulty of
these ills, we must realize
them, tell the whole truth and
then apply the remedy. Sordid selfishness must be made
to disappear, man must show
large hearted humanity; he
must realize that he lives for
his brother man as well as for
himself.
"In my book is a vision of
new and regenerated society,
when men and nations will
unite in labor. When glorified labor has become the law
and the life of the world it
will be at once the creator and
regulator,
"I look forward to the mil-
lenium when strife between
labor and capital, between
master and servant, will have
ceased. The ancient slavery
will disappear forever in the
nrw society; the servant will
also disappear. If I try to
present the synthesis of the
labor crisis of today it is in
order to point out the inevitable result, namely.the triumph
of truth and justice."

They Do Bualneaa Right
The Cooks' and Waiters' union ol
Phoenix are conducting their business
n a manner tbat cannot fail to win the
admiration and attittancc ol tlieir employers. In that town a cook it compelled to give bit employer a week's
notice belore leaving, otherwise he must
pay one week's wages to the union.
This protects the employer against lose
and much inconvenience. A lew days
ago a Chinese cook wat brought in ona
boarding car. He became dlstslisfied
snd qoit without a momsnt't nolics,
placing hisemployenin a ratherawkward
position. It wat tben tbat Phoenix
onion cams to the assistance ol the railroad people, supplying a cook wbo is
bound lo give notice of hit intention to
quit or tacr.floe a portion ol hia salary.
Thit It a move in the right direction
and one that could be easily lollowed by
Uke nnioni in other camps in the Koote-
naya. By protecting your employer
you protect yourtelt and suck acts will
do mach towards removing that undesirable competition that is the bane ol
llritith Columbia labor al present.
There ia ao Cbinete or Japanese competition in Phoenix, and as long as ths
unions continue to act in Ihat straightforward manner, it it necdleis to lay
there will not be.

to devising waya and means for tbe curtailment ol thc expenses of the city.
A petition asking tbat Kootenay and
