THE STRIKE
SITUATION
The Story of the Differences
Between the C.P.R. and its
Mechanics from the Men's
Point of View.
To THK EniTOK :
As the mechanics now out on strike
lind iheir position misrepresented by
the O.P.R. and misunderstood by the
public, it is only fair 11 tbem that
publicity he given to their side of the
questions at issue. *
The men contend the action of the
Company is clearly part of a scheme
to disrupt organised labor aud is be-
liev d to be the initial steps to give
effect lo an otticial's icputed boast
that he would burst every labor organisation connected with the Company's system inside nf fire years.
The Company attacked their western
machinists first, placing last winter
men on western lines on short time,
besides i inohurging a third of tlieir
mechanics. Tlmso remain ini- in tbe
Company's employ were given an
average of only 130 houia' work a
month.
In April the Company gave notice
cancelling tlie schedules tbey bad previously iirr.mged with the ne chi.nics.
The men saw tlie Company was looking for trouble and wit', a view io
having a fair aud eq litable adjustment of their relations with the Company they applied for a Board of
Arbitration under the new Dominion
law dealing with labor disputes. The
Company sought to limit the investigation of the Board to western lines
only, whereas the men contended tbe
action of the Company would not
only affect wi stern but eastern lines
as well, iu this the men were sustained by the Board. Beaten on this
score the Company retaliated by discharging 800 mechanics in the Angus
shops alone, snd extended their policy
of repudiation of agreements to the
eastern lines as well as the western,
thus involving the whole syste it,
When the Board of Conciliation
was set up and started its enquiry the
men asked that the investigation
should he thorough, and tbey went to
cousiili 1.Me expense in pr> paring and
presenting their case, showing clearly
that the position of the mechanics
was im better than, nud in fact not so
g iod ss, prevailed south of the In miliary and iu Europe.
In spile of this the Hoard saw tit lo
alter the conditions, making the po i-
tion of the mechanic! worse than they
are a- ywl.cre i lue, and contrary to the
evidence rlearly presented to the
Hoard Tbey wauled to allow the
Company to alter the schedule so they
could c.ie.ite four grades of boiler-
maker—a precedent that is unheard
of either on this continent or in Eur
ope. A boih riuaker is a hoileimaker
all the world over, and the men proved
that principle up to the hilt. The
Company demanded that a sliding
scale he adopted aud represented that
it would only alTid 5 per cent of the
men, but when the Company's propo
-nl «as investigated jl, wan found il
would certainly mean a reduction in
the Case of at least 70 per cent.
As to the apprentice question the
eiislom has been to work one apprentice to live journeymen, The men
proved to the Board that was the rule
Isith in Europe and America. In defiance of this the Board decided the
universal rule should be abrogated in
the ease of tbe men employed by the
Canadian Pacilic, and tbat one appren
tice should be allowed to each four
journeymen, thus allowing an increase
increase iu the number of apprentices
to 2.ri [ter cent ol tbe journeymen
employed.
The principal grievance thus affects
the boilermakers, and the question of
apprentices. AM other points of difference can |.e amicably adjusted between
the Company and the men.
So strongly do the men feel that an
injustice has been done them thai
117.3 |ier cent of tin' mechanics voted
to reject the award on these pointB,
though no strike wus ordered ti I
every effort wns made to secure an
amicable settlement. They were told
that as the Company's principal otli
cers, Meters, Whyto and McNicol,
wen away the Company lould not
open the mailer. Iu the absence ol
these two, Yau,han and Shaughiiessy
were also approached with a view to a
settlement, but' relused any overtures-
on Ibe part ol tbe men.
This showed the Company bad n'
intention to discuss a fair settlement,
but by refilling lo discuss grievances
with the men's representatives left no
doubt iu tbe minds of any reasonable
man that it was not a settlement they
wanted but that tbis was the starting
point in an effort on the part, of the
Company to disrupt organised labor.
If the Company could beat the mechanics tlieir "bursting-up" policy
would he extended to tho organisations in turn, with a view of bursting
lip every labor organisation in tlieir
service within five years.
Every ((Tort at a reasonable and
iquilable adjustment having failed,
the machinist from one end of the
roup to the other went out on strike
ou August 15t.h at 10 o'clock.
The Company are circulating reports that the men are going back and
that the vacancies are filled. These
statements are contrary to fact. The
Company is making au unfair use of
its pension system by issuing notices
to the men on the pension list to return to work in the shops or lose tbeir
pensions. This does not say very
much for the merits of their pension
scheme.
The history of the trouble then is
that tbe Company tried all sorts of
schemes in April last to force the
issue and drive the men to some rash
act. Instead, the men. by their patient conduct, and persistent efforts at
settlement, showed thoy wanted peace
ful relations with the Company if at
all possible. At that time the Company had no regard for the interest of
the people of Canada, but were laying
themselves out to disrupt organisid
labor. Their la*er conduct shows an
utter disregard for the public interest,
especially in view of the crop movement and prospective activity in the
shipments of lumber. Anything tbey
give out to the contrary iB merely
design d to hoodwink the public and
bluff tbem into believing the.men
have no (.-rievance, whereas their very
existence as organised workers is
threatened as organised labor has
never before been threatened in the
history of this railway. Had the railway company in view the duty they
owe to tbe public in a busy fall following a severe trade and business depression, there would have been no
cause for tbis strike and it would certainly never have been called had the
Company been prepared to abide by
iti agreements or sought to make a
reduction in wages commensurate
with its loss if business during the
period of depression. The mechanics
are rea-onable men, and prepared to
act in a fair and equitable manner,
but they won't stand for being the
viciims of the Bury poll •}• in order
that that gentleman may make good
his iasli promise; nor do they believe
tbere is another railway organis-ation
ill existence today tbat would not defend its lights in the same manner as
they are doing. They are lighting foi
i pri oiplo lhat nll'ecta eve.y branch
of organised labor, and behind which
overy loyal union worker will at.ind or
fall.
Ill this sir ike lhe mechanics are
ill-termim il to stand together as one
man, for iu proper organisition alone
lies the security for fair wages and
equitable conditions.

C. P. R. STRIKE
Situation Unchanged—No Settlement in Sight.
MoN.'itKAi,, Aug. II.—The only new
development in the 0, P. lt. strike
situation yesterday was that several
arrests, tbe lirst since the inauguration
of the trouble, were made, two of the
strikers being placed under arrest on

returning Irom work at the Angus
shops.
A report circulated that 0, P. It.

the continuous drought.

Fernie Fire Destroyed Limits
Valued at Millions
Vancouver, Aug. 15.—The lumber
industry in Eaat Kooteuay received a
s_vere blow owing to the recent disastrous lire at Fernie and other points
in the Crow's Nost district according I
to Mr. VV, A. Ainstic, secretary of Ihe
Mountain Lumber M uiufaoturers'
Association. Mr. Ains ie is bere ou a
brief business trip. He estliu ites thn
loss of standing timber nl millions of
dollars, although at this tinge ligureB
are not available. StockB of lumber
aggregating 22,000,000 feet valued at
$3(10,000 and only partially insured, as
well as live sawmills at Fernie, went
up iii smoke, Nor is this all. The
lire haB reduced the sawing capacity
of the Kootenay mills by 380,000 feet
overy ton working hours. Plans for
rebuilding the plants have not yet
been announced by the owners, although a numlier of thorn are most
likely to be replaced.
" The lire, although a disastrous
blow, will not have the effect of preventing the other mills from supplying
the light demand lor lumber from the
prairie provinces."

VICTORIA TRAIL
Now lhat the new trail of Victoria Mountain in completed, Bevelstoke has easy access to one of
the finest natural parks in the Dominion, a park which in ita immensity, its magnificent situation
and its attractions cannot but Iill
all wlm have visited it witli enthusiasm. The intrinsic value to
Revelstoke cannot be overestimated and the visitor to this region
in the clouds will fully appreciate
the patience and energetic enterprise on the part of those who formulated the scheme fur bringing
this territory before the public
notice. The present council ure to
be congratulated on their persistence in bringing the matter uf tbe
trail, wbicb bas been under discussion for Beveral years, to a deli-
nite head, and now tbat tbe work
ia completed and tbe money paid,
thi* provincial government should,
according lu their promise, stand
half the cost. The value ol tins'
work both to the city and tbe government can be readily seen 11 ad-
vantage is taken oi tbe trail, bj .iii
uur citizens, Although tbe city
council 1ms tbe credit ol tin- undertaking, tbe Tourist Association
has dure   much towards  it.- carr\-
Don't knock the place that gives
you your bread and butter. Don't
join the anvil chorus. If you have
anything to sny, let it be something
that will cheer, not depress the
other fellow. Optimism is contagious. Don't go round with a countenance like n hearse and a voice
tremulous with woe. Smile, und
boost your city. "If you have
made up your mind to live in a
town," to quote an exchange, "then
stand up for it, and if you know-
positively no good, then silence is
golden. Do all you can to help
every man who is engaged in legitimate business. Do not send away
for everything nice you want and
still expect the home men to keep
a stock to suit the whims of one or
two customers. The success of your
fellow business men means success
in your own linn of business. Take
your home paper. Do not imagine
the big dailies till up all the space.
There are little services of good
cheer, social sunshine, personal
mention in the home papers that
the big papers do not print. The
ill-omened, the croaker, can do
more harm in a minute than two
good citizens can • repair in a
month."

MINTO CUP WINNERS

Champions.
No inoie enthusiastic welcome couhl
have been given, or a more genuine
spontaneous display of sportsmanlike
spirit shown, when the train bearing
the victoroue New Westminster lacrosse team, winners of the Minto
cup, rolled into the depot on Wednesday evening A large concourse of
citizens, ihe fuii-sex if anything predominating, gathered on the platform
to see the "conquering heroes come"
anil give them a lilting welcome. The
Independent Bant) was in attendance
and played selections while the
champions were receiving the congratulations oi lhe people. The Minto
cup, which symbolizes the blue ribbon
of the lacrosse world, waa on view and
duly admired Mayor Lindmark made
11 brief address, expressing on behalf
of Kevelstoke citizens their appreciation of the great victory and the
maimer in which the Westminsters
had brought the laurels to the west.
0. A. Welsh, manager of the team,
replied to the Mayor's remarks, and
the crowd gave vent to hearty cheers

with vehemence. The boys were made
the recipients of gifts from the admiring citizens, and were tendered another
great ovation as the train pulled out,

INCREASE HOLDINGS
American Capitalists Here Arc
Looking for Investment
I.i's_i_iiiK opprulioiis nn so extensive
scale ut their Harrison lake limits will
be cirried i ut this full nn.l winter by
MesBre. M. E. Jeffries of JameBVille,
Wis., and Rufns H. Hoys, i f Saginaw
Mich, The area they own comprises
22.0(H) acres densely covered with fir
and cedar The visitors formerly
owned sawmills in Michigan and
Wisconsin,
"We acquired the Harrison lake
pro-KNotis-H six years ago nt a period
when wc foresaw the western trend ol
the lumber industry," said Mr. Jeffries.
" Events hate confirmed on judgment. We aie quite satisfied with
our investment and are prepared to
investigate other limber propositions
with a view of purchase
" We have not decided whether we
shall engage in the sawmill business
or not. It all depends upon whether
wo increase our holdings. Meantime
it is our intention to establish a logging camp this fall on our Harrison
lake limits. Although business is
dull in the east, the lumber trade
being affected, the outlook for a speedy
revival of commarcial activity is
bright, I don't look for much improvement until after the presidential
election.
" No matter which party wins,
tariff revision by the next congress is
a certain!!. Lumber will be placed
on the free list or else a mere nominal
duty, possibly 50 cents a thousand
will be imposed. The time has now
arrived when the American people
will require to draw a large portion of
their lumber supply from tbe Dominion."
