A Menace to  U.   S.   Tiade
Bounty   is Costly.
Buffalo, July 21). -Frank B. Baird,
of this City, who is extensively engaged in the manufacture of iron and
steel, wns n witness before the New
York State Commerce Commission
here today. In tho course of his testi-
Jhonv, he referred to the revival of the
iron industry in Canada. Canada, be
said, is to become a great competitor
in tlie iron industry. That country
bus offered, for five or eix years a
bounty of $2 a ton on pig iron. He
said ha had examined, within a week,
four different sets of plans for furnaces in Nova Scolia, and scores of
others weie n I aimed. A great deal of
capital will be thus invented. He
said there was ranch to fear from this
source. Buffalo's greatest menace at
present iB the Welland oanal. "I
would rather have," be said, "a blast
furnace in Buffalo than any other
place in tbis country, but I wonld
rather have a blast furnace on the
Welland canal thnn any other place in
America."
Tho bounty offered hy Canada and
the fnoilities for shipment on the Welland canal, he explained, were advantageous.
What will this bounty cost the people cf Canada in five years?" Mr.Baird
wns asked.
"I sbonld say it wonld bankrupt
that country," he said, "hundreds of
furnaces would be started and would
be continued, even though the bounty
was withdrawn. Cue contemplated
furnace," said Mr Baird,"would draw
*2,000 a day bounty, "and he added,
"I don't think Canada can stand tbat
sort of  thing very long.'
"I expeot," oonstinned Mr. Baird,
"to begin bnilidng a furnace on the
Welland canal next spring."
Mr. Baird Bnid there was mnoh talk
about a vast combination to control
the iron ore output but said it was vis-
iouary ns well as impracticable. No
feu, twenty, tbrity or any number of
nteresrs could control the iron ore ow-
Tlto Vntir Minn is Not Faying its Men
18.50 For Eight Hours Work.
The   following   paragraph   is  taken
from the Victoria Times :
"Nelson, July 20.���The Ymir mine,
whose manager, J. Roderick Robertson, is a leading spirit in the Mine
Owner's. Protective Association, and
an uncouiprcmisiug opponent of the
Semlin Government^ is paying $3.50 a
day for uiineta, and has been for some
time. It is expected the company's
mill will produce not, less than KO,-
000 iu free goid unci concentrates during the mouth of August or $500 for
each ninn employed at the mine and
mill."
Tne Miner representative onlled on
Mr. Roderick Robertson (who has just
returned from the Ymir mine) and asked him if theie was any truth in the
assertion that his company was paying
men at the rate of $H B0 a day. Mr.
Robertson said that ho had seen the
paragraph It was bnt one of similar "speoials" from some muddle hond-
ed Ananias in Nelson but he did not
consider they were worthy of notice
or contradiction. He, however, for the
benefit of The Miner, would state that
the paragraph was a tissue of lies.
In the first place such a society us the
"the Mine Owners' Protective Association" does not exist. He has taken
no part whatever in politics and it is
therefore untruo to describe him as an
"uncompromising opponent" of the
present Government.
The men at the Ymir mine have
never received more than $1! a riny
since the Eight-Hours law came into
operntiou.
Owing to n change in the system of
tho transmission of power tho mill at
the Ymir mine will be dosed during
the greater nav't of August so that
the product: n of gol t and concentrates for tli. t month will ho pructi-
:ally nil.

it any
,  and   in
every instance the companies operating
the mines are paying their miners tho
Union scole of $!1 60 for the Eight-Hour
shift." In tho same paragraph it was
also stated that there wero 14 men
employed at Ihe Bosun nnd .7 at tbe
Wakefield, The Miner, iu nn editorial
on July 18, took occasion to contradict these statement and pointed out
that there wero but 10 men doing surface work on the Wakefield at 111 for
ten hours work.
Yesterday it was announced that tbe
Union had oalled out the miners ou
the Posun and Wakefield because it
was rumored that they were receiving
only $1 a day. It is rather humiliating for the champions of the union
when their palpable falsehoods are
brought to light hy the works of the

The Hague, Julv 2!).���Baron de Staal
delivered the farewell address to the
Peace Conference thanking the repre-
sunatavies of foreign states. Ho said
thevork accomplished while not so
oomiileto us might be desired, was
sincere, wise and practicable. The
great priiuciulos of the sovereignty of
individual states and internal solidity apparently bad not boon reconciled
by what they hid accomplished. He
affirmed that in time to coin-1, institution? which had their origin in the
need of coucord would be tne nominating influence and thus the work of tbe
conference was truly meritorious. A
letter was read from the Queen of Hoi-
aiftj to tbe Pope, asking his moial support of the coufereuca and the reply
promising a co-operation and recalling
the fact that he bad many times performed the function of arbitrator and
assuring Her Majesty that in spite
of his present abnormal position, ho as
Pope, would contrive to seek the advancement of cilivization.
Berlin, July 29.���Tbe papers this
week have been giving their verdicts
on the outcome of the Peace Coherence at The Hague. The tone of comment of papers friendly to the Conference is generally one of disappointment that littie bad been accomplished
while those opposing it indulge in
gleeful felicitations that no more wbb
done. The Tageblatt considers that
the form of arbitration adopted marks
au important step towards seouriug
the peace of the   world and adds:
'' Whoever knows the toilsome way
iu which international law is built
up will be satisfied with this result "
The Kreutz Zeitung referring to the
United States and England sayB:
"Tho nations that boasted loudest of
their humanity made the stoutest re-
sisteuco to really prantioal humanitarian propositions." It further points
out that while England and the United States stood together in opposing
the prohibition of bombs filled with
noxious gases the United States backed
tin England's refusal to abandon the
dum dum bullets.
"The platonic declaration of tbe
Conference for tbe principles of the
Czar's proclamation" the Kretutz
Zeitung continues, "introduces absolutely no change in existing conditions."
The Vorwaets gives tbe conference a
parting shot, calling it a comedy:
'' The hardest work of the members,''
this journal says," was to refrain from
laughing ,iu eaoh other's faoes at their
own insincerity."
The   three conventions dealing with
arbitration, the laws and   customs   of
war and the adaptation  of the Geneva
Convention   to    naval  warfare,   were
not signed by   Germany, Anstra-Hun-
garv, China,   England,   Italy,   Japan,

Germany,    Austro-Hungary,    China,

A Pier   at  Rochester N. Y., Collapses
���Many Washed���None Drowned.
Rochester, July 29.���During an exhibition given by a family of expert
swimmers at Glenhaven this evening a
sootiou of thB pier at that point upon
which 200 people were standing suddenly gave away, precipitating scores
of tho spectators into the water. In
an instant men, women and children
were piled in a struggling mass of
humanity into from five to ten feet
of water. Many were rendered unconscious and it was only by dint of great
effons on the part of the bystanders
that no lives were lost.
A RICH PROPERTY.
Ymir, July 29. ���(Special).���Messrs.
Walker, Ruddy, Sivver & Blauchlield

contains copper to the extent of three
per cent. W. J. Blanchfield, who Is

interests in a number of very rich
claims on 10 Milo creek ; he is a pioneer in that vioinity, and stands a good

Windermere, July 2(1���R. O. Jeu-
niugs.the well.known mining promDtor
of Fort Steele arrived on the 24th instant iu the interests of a Washington
syndicate,
R. A. Power has commenced work
on a group of promising claims situated iu the immediate vicinity of the
Mineral King on the north folk 'of
Toby Creek. It is an argeutifeious-gu-
leua proposition.
R. K. Bruce iB now working 15
mon on the] Sitting Hull group, Bonld-
er creek, and the property iB looking
better with every shot. The foreman
is ondouvoring to secure more miners
but at the present time they are very
scarce on account of the prospecting
Season.
1 Tom Jones, foreman of the New
(ioldeu, B. C. Syndicate, has increased
the force on   the Pretty Girl.
James Whittier, the well known Slo-
cau mining man, arrived on tbe 21st
instant, and is making an examination of the principal proposition
throughout the district.
B. C. Burton and partner* have located a group of promising claims situated iu the immediate vicinity of the
Red Line group, McDoDald Oreek,
a tributary of Horse Thief Creek.
Jas.R. MoLeod.the well knowu mining man,has a force of 10 men employed developing several of his interests
in different propositions on Boulder
Creek.
Sinclair Craip-is- working a force of
���nwn on the .\tj-n group situated on
Houdler Oreek1. this property is an
immense argeh'fiierous galena proposition.
Prospectors still continue to arrive
daily from all parts of the Province.
John Burman is developing the Bur-
man group on Boulder Creek.
A force of men are being worked on
the B. 0. and Chilbory under the
foremanship of Geo. Stark.
C. F. Smith made the first payment
on tbe $100,000 bond on the Red   Liue
group during the past week. It is
understood that development work on
a large scale will be commenced immediately by tbe said corporation.
There will undoubtedly be a rush
over the trail from Argenta of rros-
pectors from tho Lardo-Dunean and
Trout Lake country, within the next
month.
Hardly a week goes by without the
tidings of a rich strike from some one
of the principal creeks and their tnb
utanes.
All the principal mines and prospects
are working
Twenty-six feet of high grade solid
ore on the Red Line somewhat staggers one but nevertheless it is only too
true, and is without s doubt tbe greatest proposition in British Columbia
without, any exception.
Reports from the Swansea mine are
more favorable than ever.
Great preparations are being made
for the Windermere raots on August
5th.
A few of the assays from the Reu
Line Group are as follows: 12 per
cent, copper, 20 in gold, 85 ounces in
silver, 4 per cent lead, A recent assay
wont 800 ounces in silver. But the
average is $100 to the ton in all values
across 20 feet of solid ore.

The   quotation   of two (2) cents per
share ou Fairmont stook in   Mr. Alex
Stewart's advertisement in  The Miner
the last   two days was an   error.    The
correct   price   is four (4)   cents.    Mr.
;tewart says he could heve sold several
hundred   thousand shares at two cents,
but he considers it a very good buy at
four centB,

The   Terriblo   Turk   Vanquishes
Comers.
At tho Opera House last night, Hali
Adali, variously described as tbe Snl
tin's Lion, tbe Terrible Turk, and
.o.her equally'ferocious cognomens met
aud defeated "Professor" Lewis, of
Rossland, aud W. H. Hawley, of Nel
s in. The first bout was between the
massive Turk aud the somewhat diminutive Profoossr. The Turk's 275
pounds of avoirdupois was '.oomuch for
the Rossland athlete and the first fall
was given to the champion in three
minutes.
Then Mr. Hawley tried his luck.
He proved an active customer nnd
gave the Turkish giant considerable
difficulty before he could disposo of
him. For five minutes Mr. Hawley
succeoded in "bringing down the
house" (with applause) and theu was
brought down himself by tho Turk
Lewis then had another bout and this
time kept the Tnrk busy for 10 minutes before he was laid out.
Thero was a largo autl appreciative
audience and evidently Mr. Hali Atlai
struck u good thing when he came to
Nelson.
