 THE    SIMILKAMEEN    STAR
T^IEY FEAR TROUBLE.
Montana People Anxious Over the
Situation at Mines and
Smelter.
Q The mining situational! Montana
kg' at this time, particularly in the
smelter towns is anything but pleasant. The streets are thronged
with thousands of idle men, who
do not know when they will resume work ; merchants who had
laid in mammoth stocks, anticipating the usual heavy holiday trade,
find few buyers. Everywhere the
conservative wagearner is economizing in his expenditures, so that
his savings will carry him as long
as possible. The -future looks
gloomy, due to the public's disinclination to accept '' no news as
good news."
Great Palls is a sample town.
There for weeks the big smelter of
the Boston & Montana company
has been closed down. Several
Q thousand men, almost without
warning, were discharged. Several
hundred have been retained in the
extensive repair work and on improvements, in which the company
has expended several hundred
thousand dollars. But now 'this
extra work is about finished
no news is to be had of a proposed
resumption of operations at the
smelter plant.
EFFECTS IN GEN3RAL.
With the smelter closed has c<
a great curtailing in the output of
the coal mines in this country, of
the product of which the smelter
was the chief purchaser. Then followed a reduction in railroad crews,
because there are no ore trains, nc
copper to export, no coal to haul
^* in. Then the iron works closed
down, throwing more men out of
work, and so on, all down the line,
the effect is being felt. At Helena,
at Anaconda and particularly at
Butte, similar conditions prevail to
*    a greater or less extent.
The cause is admittedly due to
the fact that owing to the business
stagnation in Germany and to the
use of modern methods of mining
arid smelting, the world's copper
output has exceeded the world"
demand. Millions of pounds ofl
copper -at Great Falls evidences
this.
The announcement of the Amalgamated company, that hereafter it
will not seek to maintain prices,
has an ominous sound to labor
leaders in Montana. They fear it
means a determination to force a
wage reduction. There is a fear ir
timid quarters that if the prediction iroves co rect, Monona will
pe the scene of labor troubles more
serious than any ever known in the
west.
m
WAGES ARE UNEQUAL.
t is argued in support of the prediction that wages are relatively
too high at Butte. There they
range upward from $3 50 per day,
whiie at Anaconda, 40 miles away,
$2.50 is* the usual wage.. The big
new smelter at Anaconda, with its
modern machinery and plant, can
handle ore at but a fraction of tbe
cost at Butte smelters. This smelter alone, with the oversupply on
hand will meet the demands for
months, in which time the labor
troubles might be ended.
Some of the labor leaders argue
that the copper mine owners and
smelter owners have all to gain and
little to lose by an attempt to enforce a lower wage schedule.
As to the present conditions, it is
asserted that copper can be mined,
smelted and put on the market at a
profit at 8 cents per pound, even
after paying the present wages.
As tbe ruling quotations are nearly
double this figure, it can be seen
the mine owners and smelter owners are making enormous profits.
The profits are attested by their
dividends.

DEATH   OF   CHAS.  W  VEDDER.
Greenwood, Dec. 27.—Lying on
a couch unconcious with his life's
blood slowly ebbing away from a
bullet hole in his head is Charles
W. Vedder, a prominent business
man of this city.
Absolutely no cause can be assigned for self destruction other
than a temporary fit of despondency. Vedder was found sitting in a
chair in his back office by John W,
Hartline at 1 o'clock. At his feet,
bearing sufficient testimony to the
terrible tragedy of self destruction,
was and old rusty 38 Smith &
Wesson revolver of five cartridges
in which two were exploded. Tbe
bullet penetrated the right temple
above the ear, settling in the base
of the brain. The doctors after
examining the wound pronounced
it fatal.
Vedder was born at Schenectady,
N. Y., 42 years ago. He came
here from Spokane a year 1
forming a partnership with Ralph
Cunningham in the general insurance business. He was a Mason
and a member of the Knights of
Pythias.
Mrs. Vedder is in a precarious
condition. Vedder leaves four
children.
Peter Larson was taken to the
hospital early this morning. While
at work loosening frozen ore, it is
sjpposed his pick struck a small
lot of dynamite. An explosion
followed, the flying ore severely
bruising Larson. Injuries are
thought unlikely to prove serious.
