Cor. Third Ave. and Washington St., Opp. Red Mountain Depot.
To the editor of the Iniajbtrial World:
Not infrequently do workinitmen
charge Ihe church with lack of interest
in their problems, their difficultitw.their
burdens and the betterment of Ibe condition! of lile for the nation's tollers. Too
often there haa been ground fur this
charge. I am glad to belii-ve there haa
begun in Omnia at least a drawing together of the church und workingman.
Tbe Great Founder of Christianity has
ever been the truest friend of labor, and
wherever the church is faithful to her
Lord, ihe should be in closest sympathy
with lubor.
In Canada the great mass of church
members are working people, and il a
certain section ol workingmen have
stood aloof Irom the church, we believe
tin t day i*. rapidly pasting, n.i they
recognize that ministers an.l laymen
alike ar.' manifesting a special interest
in thc workingman's welfare.
Thc Dord'*** Day Alii.nee, which has
lately become a national   organisation,
with brunches in all thc   nn.  nli* *   oi
pupiil.*.ii in in the Dominion, lua dune
not 1 liltle toward bridging the gulf that
in many lccalitics lm- existed between
thc church antl labor.
Thc object ofthe Alliance ai mated in
ita constitution ia "thc preservation of
thc weekly rest day in its integrity, nnd
thc a.. nt in;: to Ihc whole community thc
right to its full enjoyment." Thia object
it seeks by (onr methods:
Flr«t—Iiy creating and arousing public opinion to a sense >.( the dangers
threatening the day of rest, ind the paramount iiiir.urt.iin.- ol Uk preicrvilinn,
not only in the interest! of religion, but
especially in tbe intcrcita of thc dotnei-
tic and industrial life of working people.
Second—lly uniting in a itrong .tml
effective organization the friends of the
rest day.
Third—lly securing the fuithful and
impartial enforcement of lawi Intended
(or ill preservation.
F1.11.th--I',y securing where necessiry,
Improved legislation lor thc complete
protection ol Sunday as a div ol rest
an.l of opportunity lor worship.
Tbe Allisoce docs not leek to enlorce
tr-e religious observance o[ thc day by
legal means, lt believe* thit the foil
benefits of the day can only be enjoyed
by those wl.o do nl-. rv.- it religlouily,
but il his thc utmost rcipect lor tbe
right ol thc individual to cbooee lor
himself what use be will mike ol the
Go.l-g.ven right to the weekly diy of
nst, and .1 ii prepared to resist as itren-
unii-.lv ss any other section ol the community, any attempt to invade Ihe is-
crcd -pberc of ind.viduil liberty. It
recognlres, however, that "thcliberty ol
rcil (or cich (cirrviog with it thc opportunity o( worship) demands the law ol
rcit lor sll,''snd therefore, it seek* by
thc law ..I tl.e land to M-cure to every
man tbe right to rest on that day.
Ol course. Ihcte are worki alike ol
nc-essltv i.nd mer.-y which must Iw permitted, ind no liw should be raicted
that doei not etcept Mich worki Irom Its
; prohlbitioni, but it n in thc interests especially «f the toiling niiei that the
integrity ol the weekly rest day (allowing
only works of necessity and mercy) be
jeilootly guarded, and that no line ol
business nor Inrm nl Industry ibonM be
permitted to be run seven davi a week
unless it be ol auch ■ nnluic that in or
dcr to its being carried «n at all, it ii e-
initial that it should run rnntinooully.
Moat men agree lhal tlm is thr can* with
thc blast furnace and thc smelter. II,
however, there ahould tome I da> when

The Industrial World.
For an exhibition of nerve
the publication by the mine
managers of the announcement which appeared in the
Kossland Miner on Tuesday
last certainly takes the bun.
That any person or persons
• mild he guilty nf such statements in the face of existing
conditions is almost beyond
"It being a matter of common report that a certain element in the Rossland miners'
union is insisting upon the
abrogation of the settlement
that was entered into a year
ago," is the way they place it.
Now these self-same managers know that what they say
is not true, no matter from
whom they received the information. They know that they
themselves have taken .very
Opportunity t<>  abrogate   that
agreement, in fact have never
lived up to any portion of it.
Tliey promised to offer no
interference to the union, and
embrace the lirst opportunity
to show open antipathy. The
union nor any portion of it
has no intention of going
from any clause of thc agreement, as evidence, when the
walking delegate was refused
permission to go upon company land in his official capacity, the union called attention to the agreement,
and received information
from Messrs. Clute and
Smith that the stand taken by
them was a right  one.     The
union insisting upon tlit* abrogation of anything? Its members are making no demands,
but are simply asking that the
mine managers live up to the
terms of settlement even as
they insitt that their employes
'hie statement that the
mines will be closed and started again at a reduced scale in
case an issue is forced is the
most veritable rot. The wage
scale for common labor. $2,511
per day, barely permits a living for a family, and this fact
is known to the managers.
Then what could be done with
$2.00 per day. or $12 per
week? It would not be a living wage and no white could
or would work for it.
With the amount of money
expended in development
work, in new machinery, new
buildings, etc.. it certainly
could not be expected that
very large dividends could be
declared. But dividends have
been paid nevertheless and
more are forthcoming.
Now, gentlemen, be consistent. The miners" union does
not wish to oppose you. and
you know it. They have
waited upon you as gentlemen asking that you make
good your promises. This
you have refused to do and
heap insult upon injury by
publishing what you know to
be false. That the agreement
is not being lived up to is a
certainty, and just as much a
certainty is it that the responsibility is not upon thc shoulders of the members of the
union. Rossland miners are
as good as can be found in
any mining camp. They are
not looking for nor inviting
trouble, as thc gentlemen
guilty of Tuesday's effusion
seek to make those not familiar with the circumstances believe. They are a peace-loving people, which is proven
by the manner in which they
submitted to thc decided
change in conditions brought
about a year ago. The settlement was effected almost
entirely on propositions of the
mine managers, and now they
seek to abrogate what they at
that time suggested and
agreed to.
The publication of thc announcement is not only untruthful but it is unfair, to the
business people as well as the
laboring element. The latter
did not invite, neither docs it
deserve such action and it is
not to be wondered at if they
resent it.
from blood poisoning, while
millions of them go up the
flume by the sudden death
route. They are seldom seen
in New Denver, but along the
water front between Nakusp
and Robson they swarm like
Micks at a wake. At Burton
city seven years ago they
chased a reporter of this paper
out of the camp and he had to
swim 2'J miles before they
would let go. The reporter
had to drink a gallon of
whiskey every morning for a
month before he recovered
I from the shock. Then we
buried him under the lilacs by
the waters of Green river.
Every day for .1 week a band
iiiosi|iiilos would sit upon his
grave ami weep until their
hearts seemed to break, and
one l>y one they died of nervous prostration or rapid consumption. Thu*. it is that thc
strange workings of nature
arc revealed unto man, and
those who have touched garments with Ananias can fully
appreciate the sad story just
told of mosquito remorse.—
One mine manager in the
city made a statement a year
ago that during his career in
managing properties he had
received the best of satisfaction from union men, that he
preferred them to others in
any mine over which he had
charge. It certainly does not
look that way now. but it maybe that he has forgotten this
as well as other things he said
at that timr.
We cannot see how a mine
that in the past year did not
ship a pound of ore for several months and is only shipping
now on a very small scale, has
expended thousands of dollars
during that time on development work and new equipments, expects to pay dividends. It is hard to figure
how results can be obtained
before a product is disposed of.
It must be that the mine
managers propose employing
Chinese and lapancse, judging
from the new wage scale they
say is to be adopted in case
the Miners' union demand
that promises made be  kept.
The mine managers of the
district held a meeting at Nelson Thursday. What a vast
difference it makes whether
the employers or the employes meet. Did you ever
stop to think of this?

Fealty Sworn By Agulnaldo
The war department at Washington,
received Information from Gen. Mac-
Arthur that Aguinaldo has taken Ihe
oath of allegiance to the United States
under the agreement of amnesty offered
by General MauArthur, by direction ol
the president. The dispatch conveying
this information contained much more
than wat given to the public. The portion withheld related to the disposition
of Agiimldo snd made suggestions as
to whut the late, lin-i of tb.' insurrection
might accomplish. No official Statement could be obtained as to what finally would be done with the prisoner,
but it waa emphatically stated that he
would be held for the present, but would
be granted all possible immunity consistent with existing conditions, lien-
ernl M.icArtliur baa hopes that a great
deal may be accomplished through
A|iulualdo. During thc time lie ban
been n prieoncr he lias made quite a
favorable impression upon General Mac-
Arthur. Il hat been suggested under
the terms ol the notice ol iiniuestv
tbe prisoner should beset at liberty »t
once, bul llicrc is a provision in thc rrn-
necty pr..'lain Ui.ui which aays that
those wlm hare violated thc lawa of war
are excepted from its terms. Whether
or net General MacArtbur bat been
...iti-i-cl that Aguinaldo has not violated
the law can net be stated, ns the prisoner would lie permitted to take the
oath |iending an investigation ot his
past conduct. Agulnaldo having been
thc head ..t.tln- insurrection undoubtedly
can be held until further investigation
is made or until the circumstances
which surround the situation in the
Philippine! makes it advisable to release
bim outright or otherwise diffuse of
h:m. These conditions and the genersl
tituation, and Aguiualdo's relation to
them, were the subject of General Mac-
Arthur's dispatch, and are being considered by the authorities here who will
have the lint! disposition of the   matter.
Blue Bird la In Rlcn Ore
A rioh strike of almost pure copper
was made in the Blue Bird mine, in the
Hoodoo district, 31 miles east of Pslouse,
a few di) s ago and samples of tbe rook
brought to Palouse.
A large amount ol the ore was sent to
Butte for treatment. Experts pronounce
the ore shown here as of reniars.il.lv
high values of copper. The itriki. was
made at a depth of 120 feet in a shatt
being sunk on the ledge. Thit bat widened until it is wider than the shaft. A
strike was nindt- several weeks ago, the
ore allowing $S0 in copper, and fill in
gold to the ton. The latest strike appears much tidier.
