steamers from St, Michael to stay
over here four hours to allow individual mineis to take advantage of the

Looks as if It Had the Best of
the Big Steel Strike
so Far.
Amalgamated Association Is
Disappointed at Not Getting Aid.
Pittsburg, Pa., Aug. 12.���The struggle for mastery between the manufacturers and men iu tbe steel industry 's now fairly launched and on
the first show of strength advantage
is with the former. Tbe general
strike oroer issued by President Shaffer of the Amalgamated association,
has so far been obeyed by only aoout
14,000 men according to tbe best figures obUlnaule here. The first two
preliminary calls were answered by
about 45,000 men so tbat the total
number out is now in the neighborhood of 60,000.
Tbe strikers made gains hero today
over tbe ^showing last night, and
their prospects for further accessions
at both McKeesport and Wheeling
during the week are very favorable.
The action of the Amalgamated men
at Chicago, Joliet and Bayview in
refusing to come out and tho failure to
secure any recruits 111 the Carnegie
group, throughout, the Kiskeminetas
valley and the big plants at Youngs-
town and Columbus, Ohio, have beeu
markedly disappointing to them.
They are keeping up the fight, however, in a spirited manner and claim
that thoy have strength in reserve
which will surprise their opponents.
They are pressing tbeii advantage at
McKeesport and Wheeling and their
organizers are still at work in those
two cities.
Pittsburg, Pa., Aug. 12.���Two hundred and fifty butt welding belpeis
came out tonight and orippled the
great butt welding department of the
National Tube works at McKeesport.
Tbe strikers are nearly all boys under
18 and comprise half of the force of
helpers in this department. Fully
two thousand men will be forted to
quit wo.-k and the entire department,
consisting of 4,800, is expected to be
idle. Tbe boys came out again3t the
wisnes of the Amalgamated officers.
The young fellows are turbulent and
it was tbeir strike that began the
great steel st:ike and riots of 1894.

Minority of Twenty-Two and
Government Will Accept
the Decision.
London, Aug. 12.���Tbe Government
was defeated io tbo House of Commons
tonight in tho course of the debate on
the factory bill. The House supported
by 163 to 141 a proposal, opposed by
the government, that textile factories
should olose at noon instead of 1
o'clock as now.
Thc opposition and the Irish members cheered wildly. Mr Ritchie,
the home secretary, announced that
the Government would accept the decision. Timothy Mealy, ainid laughter, remarked that the home secretary had shown great resignation,
but not the sort of resignation tne
liouse wanted.
The House passed the second reading of the Pacific cable bill by a vote
of 183 to 59.
Stone Cutters Refuse to Go Out to the
Marble Quarry.
Only a couple of men were at work
yesterday on the new postofiice building. The basement has been completed and the men are now awaiting the
arrival of the marble which is to be
used to a large extent in the building.
Men were needed at tbe quarry to get
out the stone and four were employed
by Mr. Lcnvvne, the contractor, to
go up. Tho western schedule for stone
cutters is 85 a day. Mr. Lemoine
was quite willing to pay tbis, but retained the privilege of charging what
he pleased for board, which he placed
at 81.50 per day. Now, at all well
regulated camps in thc country only
81 per day is oharge-.l for board and
unless the men could get tbat rate
they would stay a long way from the
quarry. A parley ensued. Mr. Lemoine offered to board the men for
nine dollars a week, and wheu that
was relusod he came dowu arother
dollar, but that, too, was not the dollar a day tbat the men demanded. The
contractor threatened to send to Montreal for more men and tbe men hero
told him to go ahead. At last W. A.
Galliher, M. P., was appealed to and
somehow or other the matter was fixed up, the men getting their board
for seven dolla-s a week and they left
for the quarry. It will be a couple
of days before the work will be proceeded with as no marble can be se-
oured before that time.

marks on tbo left arm. He lacks.
however, the emblem of a schooner
tattooed on thb left arm which the
Boston police say was a distinguishing
mark ou Blondin. The tattooed figure')
on the arm of the arrested men represent anchor and the initial of the

Newport, R. I., Aug. 12.���The Constitution covered the triangular course
of 30 miles today in 33 seconds less
time than the Columbia. Tho champion of '99 however, wins the race on
time allowance by about 30 seconds.
No corrected time can be given as tho
boats bave not yet been remeasured
as required. In previous races, the
Constitution had allowed the Columbia 1 minute, and 17 seconds. With
the change in measurement, the new
rig of the Constitution has made; is
unknown, but it is estimated that she
now allows the old boat only a few
setonds less time, if any. Tbe finish

The census returns reveal tbat tho
polulatioii of Canada is 5,400,000, or
600,000 "ver the figures of 1891, which
were 608,000 over those of HS1. The
returns are a disappointment to those
who believed that the population was
something over 6,000,000, still there is
some consolation in an increase ot
60,000 per yeai in the decade between
1891 and 1901.
Thc explanation of why the population has not increased more will be
found in the returns of the 0. S. census, taken in 1800, which show tbat
there were then a few thousand over
1,1011,0110 native horn Canadians in the
United States. This reveals that notwithstanding the hope that emigration
to tbe south is decreasing that it still
continues. The young peoplo of Canada still go thither to seek their fortune nnder the mistaken idea that
there are larger opportunities there
than here and this will probably be
the practice until the population in
the republic become so conjusted that
it will no longer be an alluring field.
It is not through lack of patriotism
that people leave Canada, as thete is
not a more loyal class in the world
than the native-born, but because they
think tbey will bo able to do bettor
than they would by remaining borne.
This, we believe, is a fallacious idea,
for thc Dominion has a wealth of resources which they should remain at.
home and aid in developing They'
owe it to the country in which they
were born to rentier it a service in
this way. While they are leaving the
country a number of far-seeing American capitalists are coming in and
taking hold of a few of the many opportunities which they leave behind
and are making them pay.
There arc unntnnbored opportunities
in Britisli Columbia for those who
aro going to the United States and a
large, proportion should come here und
help build up what is certain to be a
great province. In the meanwhile the
mines of this section are beginning
to pour forth a steady stream of
wealth whicli will soon he felt in
every avenue of trade and enterprise
ln the Dominion This section purchased nearly 81,000,000 worth cf machinery in Eastern Canada last yeai

The output of precious melals will in

the increase in wealth will come enlarged opportunities for tlie young

Canada is now producing whiskey
which is a good enough tipple for
kings antl it is thought that the British, tbe Belgians and the H-llandeis
will liku qui tobacco after they havo
sampled it. One of the leading manufacturers of whiskey has received a
warrant to furnish King Kdward with
a supply of one of tbe leading Dominion made brands. At, the same time
the Dominion authorities havo taken
steps towards fostering a taste for
Canadian grown tobacco in Oreat
llritain and on thc continent. The
olllcials of the department of agriculture arc to look after the lirst shipment antl great care is to ho taken
that it may be of prime quality. It is
thought the quality of tlie weed
grown ill Canada is best, suited to the
taste of the peoples of Holland and
Belgium and the first effort will be
made to secure a foothold for the pro-
duet in those countries, and next
Great Britain will be mado a market
for it.
With King Kdward setting the fashion Canadian whiskey sbouid become
a leading tipple among his loyal
subjects and tbo demand for it should
from now on rapidly grow. With the
British the Hollanders antl the Belgians consuming our tobacco the
lcreage devoted to its growth would
soon bate to be enlarged. Thus it
is that the superior merits of the
products of Canada are forcing antl
will force themselves on the people of
the Old Wcrld.
Poitunately the trouble ln the Phoenix camp between the management
of the Granby mines and the carpenters has been amicably Bettled and
there is no likelihood of a strike there.
The manager for the company sayB
it is not looking for trouble but is engaged in mining and wishes to get
along amicably with its employes.
It is stated that F. Aug. Heinze,
the Btttte mining and smelter magnate, and associates have secured the
Britannia mine on Ilowe Sound, near
Vanoouvor. Heinz, will bu remembered aa the man who built the Trail
smelter and tho Columbia &. Western
railway from Trail to Rossland anil
from Tiailto RobBon. He is a man of
restless energy and now that be is in
control of the Britannia its rapid de
velopment may be looked for. Once it
is brought to a productive stage a
smelter may be looked for as Mr.
Heinze never does anything in a half
hearted manner. With his advent into the mining field on the coast he

An Excellent Address Delivered hy
Miss Merrill on Sunday.
One of tlie best addresses which
have been delivered before tlie Nclstin
I Socialistic Club was given in the
Miners' Union Hull on Sunday after
noon, Being delivered by a lady,
was one explanation of the large at-
fendanta, but tbe patient attention
and treoerouB dismission which followed indicates that the principles
enunciated by the speaker, elk
it.il the .ympathy of the audience antl
iri'iileil a desire in the mind of many
(ur a more frequent Intelligent disous-
Bloii of tie' questions. Miss Merrill
nl ibi* city "as the speaker. The sut
loot was. "Why Women Should lit,
socialists." Miss Merrill referred to
tie part that women requite to play
ni iii.. dlBcusalon antl bringing abont
ol the new regime. One potent cause
ot women's Indifference to "tlie new-
old gospel" of socialisin, is liecattte
[bey have not yet realised it to bu
their duty to bring to it "the same
ardor and the same strong desire they
have so lnag given to the church,"
When tbey do this socialism will
gather under its bright wings "the
poor nnd the r'eh, the weak and the
strong, the happy and the miserable,
the outcast und the idol of society,the
learned ��ml the unlearned, into one
gicut family, where the golden rule
will be a livable precept, and each
will seek the good of all, and all the
good 0,' each."
The speaker claimed tbat Ihe principle of socialism were essentially a
woman's mission inasmuch us it
meant a better condition of the home
life ot tite women antl the children.
In this connectio 1 the speaker referred to the fact that "tlio desperate
struggle, the mental lesistSnce, the
feat and the dread, the overwork and
the anxiety in the mother life accounts for the puny, sickly, incompetent child which is born to he.-." anil
elainied that when w. as a peoplo and
a nation, "devote as mu.-li time and
care to the propugation of the human
rate as we do to breeding liu.ses and
cattle and the propogation ol' wheat
and other productions of the soil,
for the sustenance of man, then and
only thou, may we expect children
to be born with brain and brawc.
and a healthy, happy nature, which
will inline tho rearing of them a pleasure and not a dreaded task."
Referring to the social evil, whioh
was recently preached on by one of
the lniuistets in the city, she observed that "in tinding a reason for the
terrible prevalence ol this evil, thc
preacnor did not once touch upon a
reasun called 'economic eondit'-ons' for
its existence, llow many of the discouraged store girls and sweat shop
workers, with desires and ambitions,
just like other girls, grow weary of
the struggle to exist on tlie SI or ��5
per week, coming in contact, us they
do, with beautifully dressed women,
and handling and making line garments, homeless and homesick, with
aifections thwarted, bodies tired, and
bewildered minds, and yield at last to
temptation. They aro victims of the
teniblo system under which we live,
for if eunomic conditions would allow the formation of true homes, men
would not be prevented in their sexual desires,women and men could live
natural Hies, morally and physically,
and children wo.tld bo welcome, were
support and education assured. And
these women, whose hearts a- e capable of the wc.meiit wifely lofe, and
motherly devotion, woud bo where
they ought, ,o he, in a home, sheltered
by the love of un honest man, instead
of being driven to prostitute their
bodies���the holy temple of motherhood
���to the perverted love of man���which
is lust���for proiit."
Exciting Pastime Furnished try the
Swift Water Below tlio City.
Messrs. Criddle and Sergeant of the
Hudson's llay stores and Hunt of the
RonnlngtoQ Falls plant composed one
of the parties who, on Sunday, enjoyed the exciting run through the swift
water in tho rapids of the Kootenay
below Nelson. Mr. Hunt had purchased a hoat in Nelson for use in the
river below tbo falls and invited the
other gentlemen to join him in the
trip. All the rapids betwoen Nelson
aud llonnington were run with the
exception of those at tho bridge and
the Catalina rapids near the falls,
the hoat being safoly roped down
through these. The trip was made
without any mishap, tbe boat, being
safely landed at its destination none
thc worse for wear.
The other party to take the trip on
Sunday was a smaller one in numbers,
being made tip of W. A. Galliher, M.
P., and Inspector of Mines M.Gregor.
Mr, Galliher was anxious to make
tho trip, b-it found considerable difficulty in finding any one to accompany
him,_the thought of laboriously towing the boat up against thc current as
a wind up being anything hut pleasant. Mr. McGregor, who was dressed
up for ohurch, was finally persuaded
to go, so they procured a boat and
started. The chief incident of the
trip (besides towing the boat up) was

Ed'tor Miner,���I noticed an article
in The Tiibuue of the 8th re the petition whicli the property owners on
Harris Mountain, sent, to tbe Government agent at Nelson some time ago to
see if wo could get two or three hundred dollars from tbe g-vemment to
repair the trail from Maccaroni basin
to tbe Harris group, a distance of
eight mi'es and I note with much regret tbat tho government agent at
Nelson does not see his way clear to
grant assistance as bo claims the trial
is in the Bouth east riding of Kast
Kootenay. Will *.lie government
agent, or tbe government please tell
us property owners on Harris mountain in the Whito Grouse country,
what right south east Kootenay bas
to repair this trail at present, as all
tin; moneys for records on those properties is paid into the mining record
oflice at Kusknriook and at this date
wo could not expect, to get assistance
foi this trail from south east Kootenay, when the revenuo from those
claims is paid in to the recorder at
Wc surely have reasons for com
plaint when I tell you that this eight
miles of trail from Macaroni basin to
tbe Harris group was built some four
or live years ago by the owners of the
Harris group with tho excoption of
about SIM which was allowed me as
assessments on my claims at the time
the trail was built.
So far thu Government has not been
out a single cash dollar for this eight
miles of trail and I think it is now
time this matter was lookod into and
some assistance given by the Govern
ment to repair this trail.
