In the work of his special mission. Mr
Cbsrles A. McKay, traveling agent for
the miners' unions of Kootenay, 8. C,
visited Toronto a short time ago. While
in that city on August 31, he deemed it
advisable to advertise in the Globe and
Mail and Empire in the following words:
"Miners, Attention.—Owing to a
strike against a reduction of wages cut
in Kootenay, B.C., miners sre requested
to etsy away from there. When the
strike ie ended you will be notified.
(By order),
Chah. A. McKav
Agent Kootenay A;itiers' Unions, B.C.
The Globe inserted the advertisement
without question or objection, but in the
other case Mr. McKay says "the above
notice being presented to the manager
(of the Mail Empire) through bis clerk
for advertisements, he refused it, saying
he would never publish any notice to
warn men to keep away from any place
where there was a strike on."
Thia camp received a genuine surprise
the first ol the week, when it was learned
that Joseph Errington, a laboring man
of (his place, wss in Revelstoke trying to
engsge scab labor for one of our
minea. Whether instigated by the company or not, this sneak, to secure men
ior bis employers, resorted to misrepresentations and deliberate lies. He
was direct from thia district and familiar
with the situation here, so there is no
excuse for this "thing's" action. Ha
succeeded through his lies aud confidence
talks In securing the promise of a large
number ol men to come, but tbey, becoming suspicious, sent one of their number
here to investigate. Their scout, upon
bis airival, found out that he and his
fellow working men of Revelstoke had
been d.-librntely lied to and tbat there
was plenty of skilled labor bere. anxious
and willing to go to work. For bun or
his comrades to accept work here at tbe
present time would make them the
worst kind of scabs.
Telegrams were at once sent lo Revelstoke, he himself returning to thst place
to more fully inform the people tbere   of
tbe true labor situation here, aud  to tlie
honor of Revelstoke let it be  said  that
not one miner in that district was willing
to come bere to scab. Errington succeeded through persistent lying in inducing
four carpenters to come here, saying that
Ihey would bo put to work at   once at
union wages.    ludge their surprise upon
reaching here to find no work awaiting
them and to lie told that they could have
work bye and bye.   By his actions this
man Errington has proved himself to be
worse than a scab and has shown hi'n self
willing to botray his fellow workingmen
for a little cheap job sucb as   he   has   at
present, wielding a pick and  shovel as a
common laborer.

Silverton, B. C. Sept, 20th. 1899.
To Whom  it May Conckbn.
We the undersigned do hereby
declare that we were engaged to come
out to work in the Payne mine in British
Columbia, under the vilest kinds of
The representative of the Pavne mine
gave   us to understand   in the  most
emphatic language tbat  there  was  no
strike, no trouble between  capital  and
labor, nothing, only the demand tor labor
was icreater than the supply,  and  Ihat
the  wages   we   were  ottered    was the
standard rate and regular pay tor miners
in the Slocan District of British Columbia, after accepting his terms and getting
tickets Irom him from  Ottawa, Ontario
to Sandon B. C,  we  arrived here  in
Silverton   to-day and  hearing on the
boat that there was a strike on  decided
to stay here and enquire the conditions
and imagine our surprise when  we  find
thst the  mines are all   closed down,
plenty of idle miners  here ready  and
willing to go to work if given the regular
wages snd not  be reduced  from  three
fifty to three dollars, as tbe mine managers of tbe  Slocan District of British
Columbia aro trying to do for tbe last
three months and have not succeeded in
one single instance up to date.   Another
thing tbat tbe agent of the Payne  mine
represented to us, was that tiie prices of
the necessites of life were just aa cheap
bete as they  were bsck  in Ottawa or
other Eastern cities in  Canada,   which
has turned out to he another falsehood as
the prices are at least thirty-three per
cent higher than at e astern points,  snd
the three  fifty that tbe  miners   are
demanding ia not as good  as  the  two
fifty we were  getting  before  we  came
out here  through  the  deceptive  misrepresentations of the Payne mine agent.
We ask is this our tree Canada which
in   the   past  bas  been  our   boast, can
such deception be used and remain un-
punished ; can a company or any one use
sueh means to try and make men scabs
and to forget the  least   spark  of  their
manhood?    Here wo are, three thousand
miles from home, strangers in a strange
iund, having left good situations to come
here and then be lelt  stranded   in   this
far oft western country.    Again we cry,
is this our  free Canada  and  what ia
British justice ?

The llrst das*, has seen ils liuildin»*

loss of life occurred iu the ftfcoiul class
nnd it is there thill r.lui v.ilioii Ihri-aleus.

Under these qpndition* iheic is only one

As a matter of fad people arc starving

Sour Stomsch
Back up a sewer, and you poison the whole neighborhood. Clog up liver and bow|&and your stomach is
full of undigested food, which sours and ferments, like garbage in a swill-barrel. That's the first step to untold
misery —indigestion, foul gases, headache, furred tongue, bad breath, yellow skin, mental fears, everything that
is horrible and nauseating. CASCARETS quietly, positively stop fermentation in the stomach, make the liver
lively, tone up the bowels, set the whole machinery going and keep it in order.
Don't hesitate!   Take Cascarets to-day and be saved from suffering!

lie opinion that Liberals doplore  will
have an eff.-ct which the tactics of the
Government's slavish allegiants in British Columbia could never have achieved.
"The Government in its refusal to implement a solemn pledge, has chosen to
offend its British Columbia following In
the House of Commons rather than the
C.P.R.    Sir Wilfrid Laurier would hesitate to make such a choice If tbe courage
of W W B Mclnnes characterised tbe
three other Liberal members from the
west.   Unfortunately for the people they
represent,   the Liberal   members from
British Columbia, with the exception of
Mclnnes, hnve given the Lcurler Government no cause to fear the conseqnence
of contempt for their wishes,
"Mclnnes, who has had the consciene
and manliness to remain true to his trust,
is now being denounced ua violent and
dangerous yonng man.   In the heat of
anger with a government which deceived
him and disregarded Ihe interest of the
people he represents, Mclnnes may have
used unduly trenchant langnage.   Strong
language would have been unnecessary
hsd that trio of automatons, Bostock,
Morrison and Maxwell, acted the part ol
sincere representatives of the people instead of meekly deferring to tbe convenience of the Government.    To f-ay that
strong words shall constitute a grave offence is sheer byper-critlcism wlien the
tmth Is that with more representatives
with the fearlessness ol W W 3 Mclnnis.
British Columbia would long ago have
had the letiislation it demands."

The Nelson Tribune says that D. T.
Lowery and his paper are for sale. But
the trouble with D. T. is that he won't
stay bought In his moments of
weakness he forgets whose tag he wears.
At present time of writing, a
feeling is in the air that the labor
troubles in this section will soon be
over and the mine managers and men
prepared to reenter their former
friendly relationship so necessary for
tbe proper development of the' country-
A spirit of conciliation pi-evade*! the
expressions on both sides in the strike
and it is only necessary now for each
to suppress excitables on their sides
and allow good solier judgement to
affect an understanding. The mine
managers want men, the men want
work. Under oondi tions such a*
these the settlement ot all trouble
should be easily accomplished. Bury
the hatchet and bring ont tho peace
But until notification is sent
out by tbe Unions, workingmen
should stay away from the Slocan.
There is no more law abiding class
of men ia the whole country than
tbe Slocan miners. Ai proof of this
assertion we offer the following facts;
For over three months there has been
a miners' strike on in the Slocan. Silverton is one of the hot beds of unionism and next to the largest camp
effected, yet there has not been a
single caso of lawlessness nor a man
arrested here, for any cause, during
this strike. To show what confidence
our mine ownera and government have
in the striking men of this camp, they
have had our only policeman cached in
the brush for the last week. As there
seems no need for a policeman ir. tbis
district, tbe government might as well
saye themselves tbis needless expense.
The Colonist professes to be amused to
find that some newspapers could approve
of the Labor Day speech ol W. W B
Mclnnes M. P. The following irom the
Toronto Telegram shows that the real
significance of his remarks is belter understood in the East than it ls at the
Coast, where it would be thought that
the necessity for the speech would have
excused any extravagance of language.
The Telegram says: "If W W B Mclnnes was extreme in the words he used
in denunciation of the Government's
apathy in the matter ot anti-Chinese legislation, he has created a fnrc. which
