It must be a matter of extreme  gratification to the citizens of the  United Stales' that the great coal  ^strike has at last come to an end  and that the strikeis have, almost  to a man, returned to work. - With  .strikes���other than a gold strike���  either in' theory or practice, we  have absolutely no use nor sympathy. We" have never .seen an instance yet iu which strikers can Ik-  said to have derhed or secured  lasting benefits, when the loss sustained during a strike is taken into consideration. In these days it  seems Lo us that strikes are urged  simply by unpiirciplcd and self-  nominated ktboi* leaders, and art  but ver.v rarely th*e outcome of un-  aniinou., feeling or consent of the  laborers themselves.  We have had our experience o'  Unions and of Unionism. Our  sympathies are fully in,accord with  the primary objects, biotheihood  and protection, .but alas, these fundamental .principles t^o ol.en- arc-  forgotten in the war that is cvei  waged between Labor and Capital.  Common-sense and equity become-  sub'-ervient to the socialistic view.-  of too many ot the labor leaders,  and in that the tr ne intent of unionism is, metaphorically speaking,  dead and .bnned, and the nam  among the people is svnoin 1110 u-  with STRIKE.

Francis Lee, Traffic Manager of  tiic W. P. & V. Ky., in Seattle he  is reported to-have said: "The  slimmer season which the road has  just closed has been the most successful in its history. The volume  of freight handled has beer, greater  than in any other*.year and the outlook for the future' "was never  brighter.  " The vplume of freight moved  by the White Pass Road shows an  immense increase this year. As'  yet a statement has not been made  up, and theiefore I' am unable to  give you figures.       -'   -  "One of the most' remarkable  facts in the'business of' 1902 is the  .vonderful increase in the^ tonnage  carried by. the railway, notwithstanding the ' fierce competition  iheie has been by the St. Michaels  ���<oute. At "the first "of the  'present year, i:i -some quarters, it  .vas anticipated" there would" be  \*ery little freight go in by Skag-  ���vay.and the White Pass read, but?  much to the surprise of this class,  the freight traffic ,of the 'road this  vear is from 6000 to 10,000 Ltons  greater than it was last year/which  was ihe heaviest to that time. ' In  ficl, the tonnage carried by the  road for the first two weeks in  October was-larger than for any of  the months of the previous years.  The freight charges on these shipments have beentakcu up promptly  at Dawson, showing that the market conditions of the Klondike are  the be.st.  " In this connection it  might be  Stated that  there   have   been' immense shipments  of machinery cr-  defred that were intended to be, but  were not, moved  in   1902,   for the  reason  that     the     manufacturers  could 'not   supply     the   demand.  Therefore, next  year,   and for the  next three or   four years, the shipments will  be .increased  very materially.    There   is no better   evidence of the   permanence   of  the  Klondike  than iu the employment  of labor, that   h,   at   the   present  time;    the   heavy    movement    of  freight and   the   large   machinery  orders that are pending.

Among the heavy shipments o  machinery which went into the,  Dawson country this summer wa-"  a big dredge for operation on the  Stewart river. The dredge w'a-  b lilt at Whitehorse during tlu  summer and was towed down the  Yukon and up the Stewart Jto thc-  tnouth ot Lake, creek. It is of tlu  continuous bucket stjle and is o;  a hull 82 feet x 25 and 5 feel deep  ILhas a capacity of ��ooo cubic-  yards per 'day. ��� Ex-Governor  Ogilvie i.s iu charge of tlie- plant.  The ground 011 which the dredge  is to operate has long been known  to carry good values. Miners are  said to have rocked out grubstakes  in gold at the rate of $5 to $zo a  day, and the general belief is that  the gravels will yield a splendid  profit with a dredge.
