 7  Vol. 7.  GREENWOOD, B. C. FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 20,  190.1  THE STRIKE  AT FERIE  .Commission Should be Appointed to Investigate.  IB' IE OF 61  -J)eputy Minister of Labor Coming to  ��� Fernie.  i'if��S  fa--1893- the- Liberal party of the  Dominion of Canada met in convention at Ottawa and there declared a  policy which in the words of the leader  of thepariy, the Rt. Hon, Sir Wilfrid  Laurier, not only dealt with, great is-  .sues but also with questions which  even reniotely affected the Canadian  people. The Liberal party was returned to power and how well the interests of the people were protected  .and promoted need not be discussed  here, because this is not intended as a  politically partizan article. The Liberals declared that they were opposed  -to anything which decreased the value  of property, which oppressed the masses to the enrichment of the few,  which checked immigration, which  impeded commerce; in a word it may  be inferred that the Liberal leader  and Liberal party believed it to be one  of the functions of good government  to war against anything that was an  obstacle to the country's progress.  The J whole record of Sir Wilfirid  ;Laurier and his government demons  strafes that that is yet their policy.  .-.' ' There is a strike at the Crow's Nest  Pass Coal company's mines. All the  coal- mines and coke ovens which furnished-fuel to the British Columbia  smelters,^are idle. If_the strike continues, all mines and smelters in B. C.  must close. Jay P. Graves, manager  of the Granby company, the largest  employer of labor in the mining district states that "things are most blue"  "It looks as if British Columbia is  cursed. With our coke gone in 10  days,, there will be nothing for us to  do but to close our mines and smelter,  letting out 640 to 700 men indefinitely.  "The British Columbia Copper company, operating the Greenwood smelter  i��ad-mines","with"abOiit"300 to 350"meh7  I suppose, on its payroll, is in the same  boat. The StandaTd smelter at Boundary Falls, which, with the Sunset mine  works, I per3ume, about 250 men. must  also close. The Snowshoe mine, working from 60 to 70 men, will also find  its market gone. We shall be unable  to handle Republic ores. It looks as if  the whole Boundary must close down  if we do not get coke speedily. I have  no jdea how long the famine will last."  "The accident in the Crow's Nest  collieries happened last Mav. We  closed down completely for a short  time and were never able to work more  than two of our four furnaces at once  until two weeks ago, when all started.  With copper around 13 cents, President  l^iper announces that we should soon  be able to pay dividends. Now this  comes and we are completely prostrated again."  Other mining men thoroughly acquainted with the situation have expressed similar views. It is certainly  a case for immediate action on the  part of the government.  The Pennsylvania coal strike completely tied up the coal mines in that  district, and the situation became so  serious that President Roosevelt interfered. ���'. He succeeded in inducing' both  coal companies ard men to resume  operations pending the finding of a  commission.  Up to the arrival of John H, Tonkin  from Pennsylvania in June last to  take charge of the Crow's Nest Pass  company's mines, there was no friction  between the company and its men in  reference to wages. Under the old  wage scale the company developed  its mines and produced coal and its  shares continued to advance in price,  demonstrating to some extent that it  was not being ruined by tho old wage  scale.  If this be true the company cannot  be seriously nfleeted by agreeing to  the operation of its mines pending the  finding of a commission. We think  the men would agree to this.  Sir. Wilfrid Laurier has a precedent  in the course of President Roosevelt.  In the interests of this province, in the  interest of this country, he should use  his office for the purpose of terminating the strike. This can best be done  by the appointment of a strong  commission who will inquire into all  the circumstances and condition surrounding the production of coal and  coke in the Crow's Nest Pass and its  relation to the mining and smelting  industries in British Columbia. The  mines in the meantime could be worked . on the basis which existed before  the labor troubles began.  The writer has before him a verba-  tion report of a magnificent speech  delivered by Sir Wilfrid Laurier in the  city of Victoria in the year 189S. Sir  Wilfrid holds the key to the situation  in Southern British Columbia. To  quote his own words used in another  connection in that speech "You are in  possession of the key and therefore it  is your duty to do; what you can to  swing open the gates so that prosperity  maj' 'come to this our common land."  Briefly the men place their demands  as follows:  The demands of the men are: Placei <  to meet in Morrissey and Michel or a  chance to buy land on which to build  one, a uniform rate of wages almost  identical with the rate paid before  the last Fernie strike and a full and  complete recognition of the unions of  the district."  BAffi OF  MONTREAL  Will Likely Open a Branch  in Spokane.  Arrangements Are Being Made With  That End in View  The Men's Side  Why the Strike was Ordered by the  Men  The Boundary Creek Times made an  effort to secure a story from aboth sides  in the coal strike. A telegram' was  sent to James H. Tonkin manager of  the coal company, asking himfora state  ment but up to the time of publication  no reply was received. A correspondent at Feinie sends the men's side. He  says:  "The men and boys working in and  around the mines and coke ovens of  the Crow's Nest Pass Coal Co. at Morrissey , Fernie and Michel all came out  on strike on the morning of Feb. 11th  and there is not a wheel turning in  either of the three camps. In Fernie  the men and boys have been working  undr a protest since Aug. 4th 1902.  The public at large are more or less acquainted with their grievances. Just  6he~m6ritH~and four"daysafter the" big-  explosion of May the 22nd 1902 in which  130 men and boys were killed, James  H. Tonkin who by tne way came direct  from Pennsylvania U. S. A. after the  explosion'to fill the position of general  manager for the C. N. P. Coal company  without consulting the employees, imposed upon them an extra half hour  under ground or in oll.er words making  it nine hours from bank to bank instead  of eight hours from bank to bank as it  had been previous to his coming here,  aud as it is in every other coal mine in  British Columbia. The men were  forced to strike or submit to the imposition. After a six weeks strike on  August the 4th the Gladstone Miners'  Union No. 76 of the W. F. of M. enter-  (Cotitinucd on last page.)  F. J. Finucane of the Bank of Montreal returned on Saturday from Spokane. Mr. Finucane does not give  much bank news to a newspaper man  but it is understood that his mission  to the Inland Empire city may have  something to do with thevopening of a  branch of the bank there. Sometime  ago it was rumored that the Bank of  Montreal would invade Sookane although that city has a fair share of  banks now- Besides the business and  bustle which characterizes Spokane,  affording plenty of opportanity for  business for a strong bank like the  Montreal, the special! magnet which  attracts is the railway enterprise in  which D. C. Corbin, Senator Turner  and others are interested. They have  arranged to build a railway to connect  the C. P. R. with Spokane and as the  undertaking means an expenditure of  several millions, of dollars, t!-sre is a  chance for the bank to do some business.  Besides the Canadian banks are  popular-with-large .firms on - the: other,  side. State banks by law are not allowed to make an individual loan for  a larger amount than ten per cent of  its subscribed capital. This would  limit. the amount a single firm could  secure from any state bank to $20,000  or $30,000, while the Bank of Montreal  and other Canadian banks have been  known to make individual advances of  several millions.  The American banks do not like the  invasion and are endeavoring to secure  legislation at Olympia which if passed  will keep Canadian banks on this side  of the line. The legislation is to the  effect that foreign banks, having  branches in the state of Washington  .must pay��� ^ taxes_on .the.f ulLamount of  their capital. This would mean that  tne Bank of Montreal would pay on  $14,000,000 aud the Bank of Commerce  on 310,000,000. As neither' bank  would pay this tax, the object of the  legislation is to drive them from the  state. It is thought that'the bill will  not become law but in the event of. the  legislature passing it, the Canadian  Bank of Commerce will in all probability abandon its Seattle branch,  the Royal Bank its Republic branch  and the Bank of Montreal will not do  business in Spokane.  In the meantime the Bank of Montreal officials are not borrowing trouble;  they are not in the borrowing business.  Arrangements have been made to open  up  in  the  Ferndale  block, one of the  best locations, on Riverside, ave.  The management of the branch will  be one of the coveted positions in the  bank's service. Who the lucky man'  will be is' yet unknown but Mr. Fin-,  ucane's many friends in the west  would like to see him secure the position. In old established institutions  like the Bank of Montreal, long service goes a great way towards promotion but sometimes special ability  knocks out this rule. Mr. Finucane  has had a wonderfully successful  career in the west. He is intimately  acquainted with its resources and  thoroughly understands its people.  In the. Sloean and at Greenwood he  has had special opportunities for tie-  coming acquainted with the mining  possibilities and with the Spokane  men who have been investing their  money in,,British Columbia. To be a  successful business man in the west, a  western training is required.' As a  rule a man from the cent belt is not a  success in the west until he gets rid of  ��ome eastern ideas.  Mr. Finucaue's appointment would  be extremely popular in Spokane and  judging from his record during 15  years in the west the interests of the  bank would not suffer.  City Council.  Business Transactnd at the Rogular  Meeting.  The regular meeting of the city  council was held on Monday evening  with Mayor Smailes in the chair and  all the aldermen present. The auditor's report was received and the trustees'estimates were referred to the  finrnce committee to report. A letter  was received from Hon. J. D. Prentice,  acting premier, stating that no except-  ivjn could be made to crown granted  mineral _ claims within municipalities  with respect to the sale for delinquent,  taxes.  The indemnity bylaw was read a  first aud second time and considered  in committee. The annual allowance  mentioned in the bylaw for mayor is  $500 and for each alderman. $200. .The  bylaw will be again considered at the  next regular meeting.  Board of Trade.  Members of Progressive Association  Will Join That Body .  The members of the Greenwood Progressive Association will join the  Board of Trade at a special meeting  called for Wednesday afternoon at 3.30  andall_will.work._under. Jhe., Board ���,of.  Trade charter for the advancement of  the city. Committees from both organ  izations discussed the-amalgamation.  The Board's committee recommended  that the initiat-'on fee be reduced to  $2.50, the amount to also pay the first  quarter's dues and the quarterly dues  to be $2.50. This was accepted by the  board at a special meeting on Tuesday  afternoon, and at a meeting of" the association on Wednesday the Progressive Association decided to join' the  board. On this basis officers for the  year will be elected at the Wednesday  meeting. Nominations forany elective  office must be signed by two' members  and handed to the secretary before or  at the meeting at which the officers  are to be elected.   Y  Y  Y  Y  Y  Y.

Among those  present were the managers and superintendents of the. various mines and  smelters in the district, also residents  of Eholt, Boundary Falls and other  camps. After "some discussion it was  decided to organize the branch and  appoint delegates. ��� The delegates  elected were Frederic Keffer- manager  of the B. C. Copper comyany, Albert. I.

The Globe tm the Strike  The president of .the Toronto Globe  is Robert Jafi'ray. He is also one of the  directors ofthe Crow's'N'est'Pass Coal  compan3'. Under the circumstances  the Globe^s opinion of managerTonkiu  prove interesting.   Itsays:  "The information at hand eonceru-  ing^the.disputeibetween^the-jnen-and  their employers at the Fernie coal  mines is not sufficient to ? warrant ��� a  judgment. There, one cause of friction which seems plain .enough, .however. One of the demands of the, men  is that their union be recognized! and  that this is a crucial 'poi'rit is evident  from the statement- of the'manager,  Mr. Tonkin, that he-.refuses .to recognize the union and that.he is prepqr.ed  to close up the mines for eight months  rather than do so.'

The city is best served by all those  who are eager to advance its interests  working together. The amalgamation  ���f the Board of Trade and Progressive  Association will give a strong body of  men who can and will do much for the  city. It is a strenuous life in these  day*'&nd when citizens expect that  provi'dence or .some other supernatural  agency is going to bring prosperity  they will be sadly disappointed. A  city is the result of the efforts of its  citizens. No matter how adverse the  circumstances, nor how discouraging  are the natural conditions, a body of  men battling together can do something. When these conditions are  moat favorable, united effortB can accomplish much. The Greenwood Board  ���f Trade with increased membership  sew blood and new ideas will be an  organization well fitted to advance and  promote its best interests.   -  (By the Boundary Falls Poet)  Old King Coal is a merry old soul  A merry old soul is he,  He calls out the men, shuts up the  mines  And all the smelters that be.  WHKN-O-UGHT   WTC TO  GO TO A DIONTIST?  Many think il imm.'ces.sary  to devote particular attention to the teeth until the  appearance of the mouth is  affected by damaged, decayed or broken teeth. Others  give the teeth no attention  till pain compels them.  The stupidity and shortsightedness of either policy is  evident.  Everyone who thinks a  moment on the subject knows  that food cannot be masticated  satisfactorily if one or more teeth  arc tender, inflamed, decayed, or  othervise out of working- order;  and if this be the case, the mouth  requires immediate attention.

THE LEGISLATURE  The legislature will be Opened on  March 12th. This ia some six weeks  later than the usual time for assembling tbe members but the government  had much to do and could not in its  own interest hold the session sooner.  Its efforts to secure an expression of  approral from the elections have not  been crowned with success. West Yale  is almost certain to follow North Victoria in condemning the Prior government. But there are other means of  ���ecuring strength. Members can be  sometimes purchased mere cheaply  than the ratepayers. A speakership  here and a public office there and a  road appropriation in another direction  are often verr effective. So far aa the  mandate of the people is concerned the  bouse should be hostile to the Prior  government. The success which attended the proselytizing proclivities of  Col. Prior and his colleagues will not  be known until tbe legislature meets.  As the principal parts of the premier's announced policy is to give away  laadii north, cast, south and west to  railway corporations it is bojfed that  his handiwork has not been too effective and that the elec.ors will have an  opportunity at an early date of returning a government that will carry out  their mandates.  No point can be made out of the fact  that the directors of the Crow's Nest  Pass Goal company are strict members of the Presbyterian or Methodist  church.  If mines could be worked without  men, the owners could have all the  say.  This is a  greater coal  strike than  has been. .  Three sessions were held yesterday  of the presbytery at St. Paul's church,  and a large amount of business was  transacted, although it will require today to wind up all the matters that  are up for consideration. Tn the morning the committee to attend the gen  eral assembly, which will meet in Vancouver in June, was appointed, the following clergy and laymen being elected: Revs. Young, Robertson and Fortune, and elders A. K. Farquharson,  Greenwood; judge Forin, Nelson; W.  S. Graham, Greenwood. In the afternoon session a call from the Kaslo  congregation to Rev. James Hastie of  Okotoks, Northwest Territories, was  read, and the clerk instructed to forward the same. A provisional arrangement was made for the induction of  Mr. Hastie, Rev. Dr. Wright being appointed to preside and address the minister, and Revs. Young and Ball to assist in the inductions~ceremonies."~The  Sabbath school report was read and  considered clause by clause and finally  adopted. The rest of the afternoon  was occupied with a discussion of special evangelical work throughout the  province. Dr. Macrae, of Greenwood,  in the evening, gave an interesting  address on Buddha and Buddhism  which led to a long discussion. It was  decided to hold the next meeting of the  Presbytery at Rossland, if suitable arrangements could be made. This  morning the reading of regular reports  will be gone on with.���Nelson News.

Gentlembh : I. have examined the books and vouchers of the city of  Greenwood for the year 1902 and they are all in order and correct.  I enclose herewith general revenue account, receipts and expenditure account and balance sheet. According to the general revenue account the Fire  Department appear to have cost the'city $938.18 for.the year, including. the  driver's salary, but they were credited with $654.for work done on the streets  and street sprinkling.  The School expense account was a charge on the city of $1,204.45 for the  year, but it was only credited with three quarterly grants from thie government  as the one for the last three months amounting- to $285.45 had not arrived when  the books were closed, therefore the school really cost the city only $918.00 for  the year instead of $1,204.45.  ^ As the fixed assets of the city were standing in the books at their-original-  cost I wrote off a certain amount for depreciation vis., 10 per cent on buildin(s  and fire department, 20 per cent on property account, 5 per cent on street.improvements,   waterworks   and   cemetery   accounts.   I   t1id- this on my  own  initiative and tnut that it will meet with your viewa.  The total indebtedness of the city on December 3lst, 1902, was $100,822.35,  (including $2,575 only on school account although $5,000 debentures were issued) against $110,720 a year ago, but then there was $2,991 cash on hand in  the general account against $113.76 now, so after making allowance for the  cash on hand in both cases the liabilities of the city were reduced about $7,000  during the year, which is accounted to a large extent by the proposed tax sale  which brought it a large amount of money outstanding for arrears of taxes,  and by a reduction in salaries of about $2,000 for the year.  Yours faithfully,  W. E. HODGES,  Chartered Accountant.  Auditor.

Holmes  For  GOOd Work-  stimulate the younger members to promote the best interests of the lodge.  During' the eveniuing- short but eloquent speeches were delivered by E.  Jacobs.Thos. Hardy,J. R. Brown.W.M.  Law, W. G. Gaunce, W. S. Keith, J. S.  Birnie and others all of whom congratulated the lodge upon its good work  and the spirit of good fellowship shown  at all its social gatherings.  The programme also included songs  by F. Fee, R. Stephenson, W. G. McMynn, H. W. Harris, J. L. White, F.  Rice, Walter Hadden and Fred B.  Holmes. Grauaphone selections by  F. Lewin, recitation by C. W. Wilson,  and an excruciatingly funny recitation  by C. R. Craig of Boundary Falls; musical selections by Messrs Harris and  Saunders and several selections by the  orchestra. It was two o'clock before  the gathering broke up after one ofthe  most enjoyables evenings ever spent  in a lodge room.  Boundary Valley Lodge I. O. O. F.  No. 38 held a social evening in its hall  on Tuesday evening last. In addition  to a large representation of members  there were visitors from Phoenix,  Mother Lode, Eholt, Boundary Falls  and other surrounding points The  attendance was a large and thoroughly,  representative one. Noble.grand Bannerman presided. The first part of tht.  evening was devoted to cards after  which an excellent programme was  carried out and refreshments served  by the members of the lodge. After  music by the Greenwood orchestra who  by the way received numerous compliments for the excellence of their playing, Noble Grand called on Mayor  Smailes to address the meeting. His  Worship revealed the particular reason  for the social gathering. He called  Junior Past Grand Fred B. Holmes to  the platform and on behalf of the lodge  presented him with a handsome past  Grand's collar. In doing so the mayor  in fitting terms referred to the magnificent work done by Mr. Holmes' in upbuilding the lodge and also in carrying  out the tenets of the order. The collar  was o'uly a small token of the great appreciation held by every member of the  lodge of Mr. Holmes great services to  "ltrrHe^iSed"'tl^l:611aF_itpbn Mr.'  . Holmes, and the applause which greeted the incident showed that the compliment paid was no empty one'  Aid. Ross supplimented the address  oif presentation by a short tribute to  Mr. Holmes' efforts in the interest of  Oddfellowship.  Mr. Holmes reply was particularly  appropriate. The gift from Boundary  Valley lodge would be;one of his'great  treasures. He had alweys endeavored  to promote the interests of the order  and the token not ouly told him that  His work was appreciated but also re-  tuiiided him of the many warm friends  he had made within the lodge room.  It was a proud moment for him when  he received the beautiful collar and he  hoped that the social evening would re-  d iiind the advantage of the lodge, because it demonstrated that good service  was appreciated and he hoped it  would  STbAR-PY YUILL  Local and Personal.

Continued from first pag-e.  ed into an agreement with Mr. Tonkin  on behalf of the C. N. P. Coal company  and clause five of that agreement in  part reads as follows: "If at the expiration of two mouths I'rnni dati�� of  this agreement, tlte Union shall signify  by writing-after a votr by ballot among-  the employees employed by the company under "round, that they are dissatisfied with the extra time under  jf round, the company hereby agree  that this agreement shall be at au er.d,  and thereafter a day's work shall consist of one eight hour shift". The day  they signed this agreement Mr. Tonkin  told the committee that he intended  in the near future to draw up a scale  of prices which he wanted the committee to sign on behalf of the Union.  He assured the committee that he  would not cut prices or in other words  the prices would remain as they were  when he came here. The day following  the signature of this agreement he  submitted his scale of prices to the  Union and to the surprise of all concerned there was a general cut of from  5 to 20 per cent. Of course the Union  refused to aiga it, but what could they  do. They had pledged their word of  honor to try the new ��� system for two  months, they went to work under protest of prices. At the expiration ofthe  two months the Union took the vote  by ballot which resulted as follows, 33  forthe new system who by the way  were largely petty bosses of the company an-2 129 votes for the old system.  The Union notified Mr. Tonkin in  writing that thev wished to return to  the old system but he ignored their  notice.  Section 6 of the agreement read in  part as follows: 'There shall be no  discrimination on the part of company  against auy of the miners as working  men employed by the company orevi-  ous to the inauguration of the strike'.  This the company wholly ignored and  many a good man left camp rather than  allow the Union get into trouble fighting his case. At Morrissey they have  been working tinder a ��� protested wage  scale since the middle of October 1902.  Forty cents per ton for digging coal  and company stores to deal in. . If I am  correctly infoimed, this is the lowest  price evei paid for digging on the continent of America. At Michel where  everything is owned by the company  except the C. P. R. track the Union  men in order to hold their meetings  have to walk about three miles into  the woods to an old logging camp with  neither doors nor windows. The company have positively refused to rent  them a place to hold their meetings.  The company stores are at the mines  in all the three camps and no others are  allowed.  Men and boys are killed or crippled  almost daily in.these mines, it would  take a whole column to enumerate all  the grievances in the three camps. I  do not pretend to give them all I merely  mention a few, so it will be seen that  the employees oj the C. N. P. Coal co.  have not been waiting for an opportunity to strike. All these months they  have been working under protest, with  the hope that they could adjust their  gfie-.-ances without a "strike knowing  .that to win a strike all three camps  mnst atriks together and in that way  shut of all the coal supply, thereby  closing down the smelters of the West  Kootenay and also all the quartz mines.  This will throw thousands of our fellow  workmen out of employment and pract-  cally stop the wheels of industry.  Realizing all this the employees of the  C. N. P. Coal company have done  every thing in their power during the  months they have been working under  protest to get the company to adjust  their grievances without a strike. All  persons are asked to keep away from  the Crow's Nest Valley until the district Union and the W. F. of M. give  notice to the effect that the strike is  .off.  Where the Trouble Lies.  John Houston, M. E*. P. in the Nel-  soa Tribune sizes up the situation at  Fernie as follows :  "The miners and the management  of the Crow's Nest Coal company are  again at loggerheads. The conflict  between these twe forces seems to be  irrepressible. On the one side are  men who want freedom of action; on  the other side are men who want to  mine coal and make coke, aud at the  aame time they waut to own the men  who do the work. The miners want  so much money for the work they perform, and want lo be free agents when  not at work; they want to own their  own homea aad be able to sell their  holdings a�� freely as men in other-  callings are allowed to; they want to  purchase what they eat and wear  where   tbey  pleaae and   when   they  please. They do not want to be  peons. The coal mine management,  for some unexplained reason, want to  have strings-on every man in their  employ. They want to dictate who  shall work, where the work is to be  done, when the work is to be done, how  the work is to be done, the amount to  be paid for the work done, and the  hours in which the work shall be done;  and, in addition, want to dictate how  the workers shall live, where they  shall live, and what they shall live on.  The self-respecting men who work in  metalliferous mines would not for a  day stand any such impositions, and  that coal miners do in every section of  the world where coal is mined is in-  explainable."  At the meeting of the Kootenay  Presbytery Thursday the following  resolution was moved by Rev. Ur.  Wright, seconded by Rev. Dr. McRae,  and unanimously carried :  "That in view of much important  information received on the coal strike  at Fernie and associated camps; and  being profoundly convinced of the  immense importance to this country  that an immediate settlement of existing differences should be earnestly attempted; and further, that it is freely  alleged and by many fully believed  that these difficulties have, arisen not  so much from  a  complaint of insuffi  cient remuneration for labor, as from  repeated breaches of faith on the part  of the managers, and their failure to  meet the men and their representatives  in a brotherly spirit or to recogni ze  either their feelings or their rights;  and whereas, we cannot suppose that  the directors of the company or their  president can have any sympathy  whatsoever with anything that savors  of persecution or tyranny, or with anything that is unbrotherly or unjust;  and whereas, we sincerely belie%*e that  the application of Christian principals  to this dispute is not only in harmony  with sane business methods but will  infallably result in an amicable and  permanent settlement:  "Therefore, the Presbytery would  respectfully, but earnestly entreat and  implore the directors of the Crow's  Nest Pass Coal Co., and especially the  managing director, to adopt the most  prompt and energetic measures to  hear, consider, and adjudicate upon  the alleged grievances of the men,  with a view to the immediate resumption of work, and thus avert the hardships and sufferings with which so  large a porportion of our population  are already face to face; the discouragement of our business men; the complete alienation of capital; the ruin of  (our industries, and the rapid depopulation of the entire Kootenay and  Boundary countries; and further, that  THE BEST BEER IN TOWN IS MADE BY  'E  PORTMAN   & PORTMAN  Proprietors  ASrv f-Orr   ~"~~^-���=-��� ^   .
