i of tic Qrnnby Smelter, B.
('.. was moved by the spirit to
semi a teli gram to Mr. 11. N. Ga-
ler, managi r of the International
Coal Co., expressing amazement
that the operators had not forced
i hi i/"\. rnmenl authorities to arrest am! jail Sherman and his coconspirators. He declared that in
so doing th operators would have
law. right, reason and the whole
country behind them. The only
reason we refer to this remarkable
document it to point the moral
which Mr. Miner and gentlemen
of his ilk have yet to learn, viz..
that more than nine-tenths of all
the trouble which occurs between
capital and labor is due to men
whom fortune has placed in positions of control who have not
learned to control themselves.
Autocratic   Czarite   methods   are
obsolete   in     every    free    country.
They are resi nted not only by the
workmen upon whom they are
sought to he practised, but by  the
public, and Mr. Miner never made
a greater mistake and be lias made
several, than when be supposed
that intolerance such as he exhibits in this telegram, would be
tolerated in B. 0. Mo further explanation of the"perpetual friction
which has characterized coal mining in  Bast   Kootcnay is  required
than a knowledge of the   fact    that
the spirit of which Mr. Miner display- has animated other employ-

the opportunity of taking a more
active part in the management of

My reason for tin -,■ remark-,

the fad that Metlakatla today is
used as the headquarters of the

their iMigim era an i ngaged in laying I i 'i towilsite and ma'..
survey of a harbor lor the Pacific
coast terminus of this company
within two miles of the h
spot, and that the terminus must
consist more or less of Indian
lands belonging to these people.
The opening it|i of this reeerve enhances the value of all of it, and
brings employment and business
to the very door of these people,
and the Indians under Mr. Duncan are alive to this, and will seek
a home where employment   can he
The Metlakatla people a- a
i\h"le lack the energy and push of
sonic of the other bands in this
agency, hut they have many excellent qualities, arc of a good disposition, truthful and honest. I
may add that I was keenly disappointed recently when a crew of
them engaged with the engineers

notice, stating that they were not
satisfied «ith the wages paid; but
my hchef is that the reason they

they do so will   prove good faithful
