A ebort time ago the manager of one
of the big stores in this city, says a New
York correspondent to the Toledo, Ohio,
Times, found thnt a rival establishment
hsd just received a large consignment of
fine lace. Needless to say that tbe lace
was expensive. He immediately sent
one of his subordinate!, over to the rival
Htorc, with instructions to buy half a
yard of the aforesaid lace. This he bung
up in a cou*.|iii iiiniH position with a legible and reasonable price mark attached.
Then he gave some instruction! to the
girls behind the counter and returned to
await developments. Two shoppers happened along and the piice ol the lace
caught thelijattentlon,
"Isn't that just too beautiful," exclaimed one of tlieni.
The other gasped: "Look at the
In answer to their eager <|tiestione, the
shopgirl answered, nonobaltntly: "That
there lace? I don't think we've got any
more.   Wait a minute."
The Iwo women waited while the girl
OOOtulted long and seriously with one ol
her fe lows.
When it wat over, the girl  returned
and informed Ilium: "Sorry, bul we're
out of tbat lace, (iucst you can get
same over in Blunk't, though," mentioning the rival establishment. The
tivo women hurried away, fearing that
tbe supply in the other store might also
be exhausted, lt wasn't, but Ihey did
nut buy any lace, und furthermore, they
advised all tlieir Iriends to shup at

Bishop Potter paints this raUltdo picture in a paper regarding his impressions
ol Japan:
"111 wcro asked to say, ol all that I
saw in Japan, what that it that lives
most vividly in mv memory, I should
probably shock my artistic reader by
saying that it waa tbe loading ol a steamship at Nagaski with coal. The huge
vessel, the Empress ol Japan, was one
morning, soon after its arrival at Nagaski, suddenly festooned, I can use no
other word, from stem to stern on each
side with a scries of hanging platforms,
tbe droiilc-st nearest the base and diminishing as tliey rose, strung together by
rop.'s, and ascending from thc sampans,
or huge bolt! in whie' -he coal has been
brought alongside the steamer,* until the
highest or narrowest platform was just
below the particul >r porthole through
which it   was   received   into  the   ship.
There wire, In etch cue; all along the
sides of tiie ship, some   four or   live   ol
these plat'ormt, one above  another, on

her mile abive her,and bo unto the end.
"The rapidity, skill, and above ail, the
rhythmic   precision  with    which,   f-r
hours, this rcullv tremendous  task   was
performed was an   achievement   which
might well lill an American athlete witb

The Industrial World.
SVriJRDAY, APRIL 1:1,   1 mi.
The attempt of Messrs. McDonald and Kirby, managers
ofthe largest mining properties of Rossland, and, judging by their words and actions,
lords of the "hill," to make
Rossland citizens and the
world at large believe that
members of Rossland Miners'
union are attempting to stir
i.p trouble or force upon the
membership something that
the majority are not in favor
of, will fall upon deaf ears.
Those who understand the
conditions existing in this city
today with reference to labor
will brand their interviews, as
published in the miner, as
We know   not   where  they
obtained the information
which they seen so anxious to
give to the public. The information is as false as has been
much more of the supposed
• information" tendered them
in the past. That they have
had hirelings to communicate
with them whenever questions
of moment arose, has been
apparent for some time. But
did it ever occur to the mine
managers that these same
men,* traitors to their fellows,
might be traitors to those
whom they are expected to
As we said last week, the
laboring element of Rossland
is a peace-loving one. They
„-. e-xepiplitied this last Monday.
But this does not set'tl'e the
question by any means. There
are grievances now as before
and these must be given attention. The mere postponement does not settle the
trouble. We know, and so
does the mine managers, that
the almighty dollar cuts a bi^
figure in things of that kiud,
but principle will prevail in
the end.
Now, as to agitators, the
mine managers know as well
as anyone else that there was
no agitating in the late difference. If there had been the
result might have been differ-
ent. b was a plain expression of opinion, in which dollars and cents cut a figure
more or less. During
the existence of Rossland union no walking delegate has attempted to interfere with anv employe in his
work, either above or below
ground. All ihe union asks
of such officer is that he see
those who are not members
while they are going or coming from work ami endeavor
to induce them to become
members. What is there
wrong in such action? In
what waj wnild this interfere
with the mines or their management? It has been repeat-
edlj slated that the walking
delegate wished to go into the
mines and other works, but it
is easy to know from what
source such talk emanated, for
it is as false as other statements that have been made.
The fact of the matter is
that the mine managers are
attempting to break up the
union. We have heard they
made that avowal when they
came here. Now why should
they do this? The union was
here before they came, and
with previous managers there
was no trouble. Everything
was moving along nicely, the
miners were happy, the business men were happy and
there was more money in circulation than now, with far
less men employed. Labor
can stand just so much. When
the limit is reached there is
going to be a kick. It was
thought that time had arrived
but it proved otherwise. Now
it behooves these men who
have been the prime cause of
this dissatisfaction to endeav-
ior to set matters right. This
th-iy cannot do I y discharging
union men just because they
are union men, giving some
other flimsy excuse for their
action, neither can they do it
by coercing a few of the many
by offers of fat positions or
larger revenue for their labor.
There are certain conditions
that must be met and it will
require 110 outlay of capital on
their part to meet them.
Members of the union are
men and must be treated as
such. They have as much
right to be members of their
union as the mine managers
or mine owners of theirs. He-
cause a man is a mine manager is no reason that all should
fall down and worship him.
He is but a man and as such
is but the equal of all others.
If the mines of Rossland cannot be operated at a living
wage then it is far better that
they be closed. Pauperism
furnishes poor sustenance for
a city.    If the same men who
at present are in charge of
these mines were asked to do
what they ask others to do
at the same wage they would
be and act just as the laborer
of Rossland is acting today.
They know this ami so do we.
Now, gentlemen tlo not run
away with the Idea that you
have sealed this question, or
that the laboring people of
Rossland arc to be lead about
by a string. The conditions
that existed previous to Monday exist today and must be
met sooner or later. Treat
your employes as you would
yourselves be treated aiul
there will be no differences.
But as long as you persist in
your tyranieal practices just
so long will labor protest.
While any attempt to raise
the w.i^es of the muckers employed in the mines at Ross
land al this time by a strike
would be ill-advised, for the
country is not in a condition
to stand a suspension of work
in any of its industrial inter-
prises; yet, wt re the owners
of the War Eagle and Centre
Star mines to suspend their
manager at Rossland, or give
him a long vacation one of
the causes of friction in that
camp would ht: removed.
Oftentimes the ill-advised actions of mine managers do a
country more harm than an
ill-advised strike. — Nelson
Officer! and Meetings.
Nelson &. F  Sheppard Ry.
The comments of the Nelson Miner anent the labor
troubles m Rossland are like
those of all monopolistic
sheets-full of much good advice to labor. Labor needs
no advice from such papers
as it is impossible for them to
do justice to labor, no matter
how much the editor may be
inclined to do so.
It has been suggested that
Mr. Kirby be asked to conduct the next balloting in the
Miners union, he having taken
such an interest in thc last,
and exhibited such knowledge of how they should
be conducted. The probabilities are that the result would
be as Kirby wished.
We hav. is much use for a
man who w iuid betray an
oath, laken for his own social
condition as well as that of
his fellows, as wt: have for a
mangy pup. A few residents
of Rossland may not like thas
but it is the way we feel, and
not us alone.

Pumping rorthe Other Follow.
In 1H74 while attending the Michigan
University  at   Ann   Arbor   I   boarded
south of tl.e court house  square  in   th-*
heart of llic cily.   All ilong  tho street
in front of the court house fanners gathered daily with  wood and   vegetables,
using thc street ai .1 market place.    At
thc side of thc street near the center of
thc block Hood an old pump from which
hundreds of farmers tnd huckster! daily
pumped water Iur their teams.     Many
complained of   the   Incessant  mil  prolonged pumping required to get   .1 pail
oi water, while the vigorous praised thc
liberality ol the city in providing a well
tn conveniently located.    In   pumping
water one day in the presence ol a  |K>-
licemsn 1 berated the city authorities fur
providing an ol 1 pump Irom which it required so much labor lo get witcr.  Tbe
policeman slid:   'Sec here, young man,"
and liking nu* to one side ol   thc pump
■bout two rods   showed   me   whit   ap
peered to be a sktlllully contrived  trap

witer lor fire purpose!,    lust below the
plitform in tbe pump stock out of sight
is a vent witb pipe connecting with thii
reservoir.   Every time yon pump a gallon of water l«r yourielf you  pump   two
for the city into tbis reservoir  ami   all
olhcre do the same."     From  that time
