CONCILIATION BOARD REPORT  Result of the Meeting Held in Greenwood May 1 Under the  Lemietix  Act to Consider the   Differences Between the B. C.   f  Copper Company and  Its Employees.  Following is the report of the chairman of the Conciliation Board, which  met in this city last month to consider  the differences between the British  Columbia Copper company and its  employees. - The reports of other  members of the Board could not be  published in this issue for lack nf  space, but they will' appear in the  next issue of the Times':  The Chairman of this Board begs  to report as follows: ���  On my appointment at the earnest  solicitation of both parties I forthwith  went to Greenwood and a meeting-  was . at once held on my arrival on  May 1st.  The complaint as filed with the  Board was amplified by the employees  who submitted a statement in writing  which sets out their ground for complaint-    That statement is as follows:  Mr. Chairman and members of  Conciliation and Investigation Board:  Gentlemen,  The members of the Greenwood  Miners' Union, in making application for a Conciliation and Investigation   Board,   under the   Industrial  granted them the time on .condition  that they would give an answer before  1st June, 1907. After the,managers  returned and we realized after meeting them that they did not-intend to  grant the raise on the plea that with  copper at 24 cents a pound .there was  very little prolit for them Alter  showing them that 50 cents, advance  in wages per day would amount to  about one-tenth of a cent on a pound  of copper, taking their own reports  as a basis to work on as they claimed  that they could produce copper and  lay it down in New York at between  9 and 1.0 cents a pound. Mr. Hodges, the chairman of. the ��� managers,  remarked that the reports as they sent  them out were only to hornswobble  the stockholders. The committee  representing ��� the various unions then  made up their minds to apply for a  conciliation board, and in answer to a  telegram that we sent to the Minister  of Mines, his deputy noticed us that  we did not come under the Lemieux  Acts as the copper mines were not  considered by the department a public   utility.     Then realizing  that  we  Disputes Act, do   not wish   to-leave  ha(* a*[ the power of capitajf' vvith th  L>,  t��BB��  the impression on the public that we  consider this Act is in any way intended to benefit  the  working class.  In fact, we consider the Industrial  Disputes Act the most hostile piece  of legislation on the statute books of  Canada at the present time, against  the laboring class.  Our reason for thinking so is that  the corporations can ignore it in  nearly every case, and as shown in  one case in which Greenwood Miners were interested, and it would have  been to our benefit to have a Board  appointed, the Deputy Minister of  Labor advised us that the Department  of Labor did not consider a copper  mine a public utility ln May, 1907,  the members of Greenwood Miners'  Union, believing tliat they were entitled to a higher rate of wages, a.s  the cost of living had advanced, and  as the price of copper had been over  24 cents for the previous six months,  made a demand upon the different  mining companies operating properties iirthe jurisdiction of Greenwood  Miners' Union, for an advance of  fifty cents a day in wages,' and believing that copper mines would come  under the Industrial Disputes Act,  we made the" demand to take effect  the 1st June' 1907.  The members of Greenwood Miners' Union believed at that time that  if we could get a conciliation and investigation board, that we had the  whip hand, as there had been enormous losses to the B. C. Copper  company through mismanagement,  and if we could get a board to demand the company's books, the management "of the B. C. Copper company 'would grant our demands before he would allow an  investigation.  But as the charges have often been  made-that the Western Federation of  Miners is a lawless organization, we  invite you to make a thorough investigation into our method'of doing  business, as we have nothing to conceal, and in making application for  a conciliation and investigation board  one of our objects is to let the public  know the true condition in Greenwood camp.  When we made the demand in  May, 1907, for an increase in wages,  the managers of the different companies operating in the Boundary  asked the committees representing the  different unions to meet them in a  body, as they would like to make a  scale of wages to be general all over  the Boundary country, and when the  committees met them they asked for  time to go to New York to interview  the executive boards of the different  companies, or alien corporations operating in the Boundary, and the  committees  representing  the  unions  public press, including the mining  journals of Canada and America,  printing lying reports sent out by agents  of the Mine Owners association against  us, we arrived at a compromise.  -.." After the Union voted, oil the'scale  and we had adopted it we posted a  copy of the scale on a building at the  Mother Lode mine, so that the men  would know what they were being  paid, so that they could mark their  cards, supplied daily by the company,  for that and other purposes. Mr. McAllister .sent word to the superintendent at .the mine .to take the copy of  the scale down, as he had not been  notified officially by the Greenwood  Miners' Union of adoption of scale.  We had then to make a trip to the  B. C. Copper C0, office and notify  him to that effect.  The managers of the various companies began to realize, that the men  by being organized, were a power to  be reckoned vvith, and Mr. McAllister  started in very soon to show us that  any man taking an active part in the  Union could not work for him.  Notwithstanding the fact that we  did not ask for a raise in wages for six  months after copper had advanced to  24 cents, and when we did demand  the raise we gave the management  over one month's notice, but when the  price of copper dropped and the conditions in the labor market were favorable to the operators the various managers of the large companies got together and closed all the properties in  the Boundary without even 12 hours  notice, for no other reason than to  defeat the objects of the Lemieux  Act, as the Minister of Labor had  given a decision after we had settled  our grievances in May, 1907, that a  copper mine was a public utility.  In May, 1908, the B. C. Copper  company resumed operations under a  reduced wage scale, but as copper  was nearly one cent lower than when  they shut down, they cannot claim as  an excuse the high wages paid in November as a reason for shutting down  in November, 1907.  During the shut down of the  B. C. Copper Co.'s properties in  November, 1907, aud the resumption of work iu May, 1908, Mr.  McAllister was very active in getting the Greenwood Board of Trade  to adopt certain resolutions placing  all the responsibility of the closing  down of the B. C. Copper Co.'s  properties on the laboring class,  and the same resolutions were published and comments made in a  great many of the mining journals  published in America. Mr. McAllister also tried to influence foremen in charge of other properties  near Greenwood, to not employ cer-  LITTLE DANGER  IN AFRICA.  Jack Coryell, who will" be recalled iu this vicinity as the  .Boundary's pioneer surveyor, is  quoted in the Vancouver Province  as seeing small danger iu Mr,  Roosevelt's-hunting trip through  Africa,    He says:���  "Ex-president Roosevelt and  party will be exposed to no more  dangers in their African "wilds"  than tbey would at a placid Sunday school picnic. The stories of  the dangers to which he  will  be  exposed are mere talk.    Equiped  with quinine aud  mosquito  nets party of natives bearers went in  gion five hnndred miles northeast of his "present hunting  grounds. This will bring him into the country of the white rhinoceros, west of Alberta Nyanza  lake. That animal is also ferocious when wounded and can  charge viciously. But I don't  think the ex-president will take  any chances with several hundred  beaters around him. Leopard  hunting is also good diversion.  "Mr. Roosevelt is now within  reach of the telegraph and cable  and telephone. He will have  these adjuncts at the western terminus of the Unganda railway.  All this region has been traversed by white men. During my  stay there a white   lady  with a  SYNOD HELD  AT NELSON.  and with ordinary precautions  he will escape malaria. T-he  greatest dauger he will run which  be from jiggers, a needle-like animal parasite which borrows under  the skin. Unless the eggs will  germinate iu a day are removed  at once, death may ensue. I  know a man whose neglect cost  him a leg.'-'  "Mr. Roosevelt has been hunting near th�� Juju ranch on Athi  plains, 25 miles east ot Nairobi,  the capital. Game of all kind is  very abundant, He can indulge  himself to his heart content in  shooting Hobs, leopards, zebras,  wild buffaloes wild hogs, and  scores of other kind of game,  including deer. In one hour I  have often shot -enough game  to last a week. It was as much  as thirty niggers could pack to  camp in one day and last our outfit for a week. In the same loc-  cality I have of ten seen herds of  animals of all kiiids extending  over a mile and a  half in length.  "The male lion is a coward and  will rarely show fight. Only his  roar is terrifying. The lioness,  especially if wounded, is dangerous. The game is beaten up by  colored men and. the white hunter  takes few chances. High power  express rifles are almost certain  to stop any animal in case you  are attacked. I have shot a rhinoceros at a distance of fifty feet.  They too are wicked when aroused  butl found no difficulty in side  stepping. From the Mau escrap-  ment the ex-president will go inland into an a-m >st unknown  re-  land to the White Nile and returned via Kartoum and lower  Egypt. She represented a London journal and-made the journey  without experienicng any great  hardships.  "On one expedition when various tribes where peace now  reigns were at war I had to make  a dangerous trip through a hostile country. Acting on the advice of a friend I decided to take  a small outfit of medicine with  me. Before approaching a native  village I sent a runner ahead to  notify the chief that a friendly  white medicine man was approaching. I was never molested, I  made it a point to carry a liberal  supply of fruit salts and rheumatism cure. I served it out in  large doses without making any-  careful diagnosis. I never saw  'faith cures' do such effective  work. In one instance a whole  tribe followed me to the railway  (rack cT-imnring for more medicine. It took several hundred  dollars to secure the supply I  needed as I wanted to keep on  good terms with the natives."  . Mr. Corvell, who is going nerth  to the Cariboo district on a surveying trip declares that he was  contented now to end his days in  British Columbia. In all his  travels he saw no region to equal  this province. He predicted a  lasting peace- in South Africa  when the old Boers shall have  p issed away.  During his travels he met  many ex-British Columbians. Mr.  Fred Wollaston, formerly a well  known provincial surveyor of  Victoria is doing well on the  Rand. He is a deep mine captain on the Primrose Deep.  tain men that belonged to the  union, giving as a reason tint if  the said foremen employed union  men that they would divide their  wages with men that he was trying  to drive out of Greenwood, and he  also made, the remark that he hud  two good men in the union to report what was going on.  In the appointment of E. G.  Warren to the position of manager  at the U. C. Copper Co.'s smelter  we believe that we can show to the  satisfaction of this Board that the.  only qualifications that he had for  this position was that he was president of the Greenwood Board of  Trade and the recognized poliitcal  boss iu Greenwood of the Conservative party in B. C, and that the  said E. G. Warren would use his  influence to disrupt Greenwood  Miners' Union.  A few of the reasons that Mr.  McAllister wanted to disrupt the  union was because that Greenwood  Miners' Union were trying to get  the benefit of certain laws on the  statute books of British Columbia,  namely, the Master and Servants'  Act, and the Workmen's Compensation Act, and we believe that we  can show to the satisfaction of this  Board that he has deliberately  schemed to impose a company doctor on his employees to defeat the  objects of said Acts. We also believe that we can show to the satisfaction of this Board that there  has been no effort ou tbe part ot  the present management of the B.  C. Copper Co. to operate the mines  and smelter of the said company for  the iuterest of the stockholder as a  whole, but their only object was to  handle a large tonnage, aud in trying to treat a large tonnage it resulted iu enormous losses to the  B. C. Copper company.  Aud we also accuse Mr. McAllister of using every means in his  power to compel Greenwood Min-  er.-"' Union to call a strike ao  that  he can place the responsibility of  his mismanagement onto the  shoulders of Greenwood Miners'  Union.  Respectfully sub.iiitted.  Demand*- made by G men wood  Miners' Union of the B. O. Copper  company:  1. That the management of the  B C. Copper company recognize a  committee from Greenwood Miners'  Union N'o. 22, \V. F. M., to adjust  all grievances between tho B. C.  Copper company and its employees.  2. That the B. C. Copper company cease discriminating against  members of Greenwood Miners'  Union No. 22. W. F.  :). That the B. C. Copper company reinstate J. B. King and T.Y.  McKay iu their employment, and  pay the said J. B. King and T. Y.  McKay their wages in full from the  time of their dismissal until such  time-as they are reinstated.  4. That the B. C. Copper company shail not discriminate against  men on account of their political  opinions..  ">. That thu B. C. Copper company shall not alter any existing  condition of employment of their  employees without notifying the  president or secretary of Greenwood Miners' Union No. 22, W. F.  M., aud all notifications shall be in  writing.  6. That the management of the  B. C. Copper company, or auy of  its officials, use any influence, or in  any manner interfere, with thei'*  employees, in their choice of doctor or doctors.  7. That tbe management of the  li. C. Copper company cease in 80-  The Synod of the diocese of  Kootenay was held in Nelson last  week, the Right Reverend the  Lord Bishop of Kootenay presiding. The Bishop's charge,  which dealt with several important enaatmeuts, will soon be in  print and will be circulated  throughout the diocese.  Among the many important enactments made by the Synod was  the following:���  Moved by Ven. Archdeacon of  Kootenay and carried unanimously by the Synod that the Diocese of Kootenav do commemorate  the Jubilee of- the Church in  British Columbia by raising a sum  of not less than one dollar per  communicant, the money accruing  from this effort to be placed to  credit of tbe Kootenay Bishopric  Endowment fund.  There is a sum already invested of $32,500 towards the endowment of the See of Kooteuay,  and there still remains to be collected the further sum of $17,500  inorder to complete the endow-  men to f the Bishopric. The sum of  $5,000 has already been promised,  provided therematnder israised by  December 31, 1909.  Another important matter dealt  with was a resolution to petition  the General Synod that it ''do  frame and put into effect for the  superannuation of all aged and  infirm clergy of tbe Church of  England in Canada, their widows  and orphans." Amotion was a-  dopted that the clergy and laity  be urged to work for municipal,  moral and social reform, having  due regards for the dangers of  misdirected efforts.  A motion to introduce the Quebec system of paying the clergy  all from a common treasury, formed by assessment of pair--h.es, was  referred to the financial sub-committee of the executive committee  of the Synod and will iu all probability be adopted. This year's  Synod ranks as one of the most  important yet held iu the diocese.  COMMCATIONS.  To thc Editor  The Boundary Creek Times.  It has come to my knowledge that you intend to print  in the next isnue of the Boundary  Creek Times, a copy of the report of the members of the Conciliation and Investigation Board  lately held in Greenwood.  As two members of Board have  giveu as a reason that Mr. Mc  Allister would nat rec-.^nizc the  Greenwood Miners Union that  we were fining and advertising  non-union men as unfair to organized Labor, I wish to draw the  attention of the public to the  fact that for six years previous t >  the time that Mr. McAllister refused torecognize the Greenwood  Miner's Union, we had only fined  one man and that was in 19J5.  And when we stop to consider  that some of these men that v,e  fined used their influence to try  and get some of our members l><  goto Mr. McAllister and offer to  scab on the Union I believe thai  we were justified ia putting  them on the other side of the  fence.

It is unfortunate that the geological  survey of this country, made years ago  and before there was a shaft down to  any depth on any of the high-grade  showings, coaveya the idea that such a  change exists, and that are therefore  can not be expected at depth. As a  matter of fact a break does occur within the limit mentioned, but it is merely  the intrusion of a dyke, as is proven  by the lower workings of the Providence. But the statement of this fact  is not sufficient���the gentlemen have  to be shown, and it will be most satisfactory to be in a position to offer this  evidence The value of the Elkhorn  and similar properties will at once be  largely augmented.  It is, of course, true that the tunnel  would prove this contention, but that  is a matter of a little time, while in thc  case of tha Providence only the un-  watering of the shaft is necessary.  Pending the inevitable striking of ore  at depth in the tunnel, the opening of  the Providence will be the greatest assistance to the hastening of Greenwood's prosperity as a mining camp.  ganized labor, until such time as  you become a member and pay the  above fine into the union.

CONCILIATION BOARD REPORT  (Continued from Page 1.  contempt, we may send a "note  round by the office bqy^ buj; we  shall not publish it in the Times.  Tbe editor who fires volleys of  type at his enemies is taking- an  unfair advantage. It reminds us  ot a Latin fable, .which will be  pleasantly recalled���by many as  being the easiest and shortest in  the book and ' therefore'a. great  favorite with the student, about a  kid which climbed upon the roof  of a house and, from that point  of vantage, called a"passing"wolf  some very hard names': w*Ttie~Wol1  thereupon drew- attetttiOBt*?t��^itfae  fact that it was really the location  of the kid at an inaccessible point  that wz^S'doing the-talkin'lg'. ������-,  There may be wolves about, but  we are not hunting for them at  present. These statements are  however made with a reservation.  If it becomes a matter of Principal, (spelled with a very large P)  and the Public Welfare -demands,  our declaiming from the. neighborhood of tbe chimney, the  ladder is at hand. We shall not  base the necessity for such an  ascent on individual bias.  But enough of what we propose.  The Times must be made an uplifting force in the community,  and to that end we ask the kindly  interest of all who, like ourselves,  are interested in this city of ours.  We do not expect to write edit,  orials for the Times.        Perhaps  in the  future,  when  Greeawood  shall have come into its own, the  paper will have to take on this  greater dignity in order to keep  pace with its surroundings.  But we do look forward to a ��eries  of friendly talks with our readers,  in which, naturally, we expect to  do most of the  talking.    It i* a  little like the story of the clergyman who, one  Sunday during a  visit in a neighbouring town, was  asked by someone he met how he  enjoyed the service.   "Very much  indeed" he replied, "I preached".  We do not expect to preach,  but  we do anticipate a little pleasure  in doing the talking.  In tbis the first issue of the  paper under the new management  we are of course expected to state  our intentions. This is always  iucuinbent on the new editor, for  unless the constant reader knew  tbe exact shade of the political  and other views ��f the management how is it possible for him to  find auy satisfaction in perusing  an article on the value of the  mineral deposits of a local claim.  But we are not looking very far  into the future at the present  time, and our chief immediate  end aud aim is the making a  paper which shall be a distinct  aid to the advancement of the  interests of Greenwood and ils  vicinity, which shall assist to a  degree in calling the attention of  the outside world to the great  possibilities of the Boundless  Boundary. It is not fair to say  that we mean to boom Green wood,  for Greenwood will be selfboom-  ing once the attention of others  is drawn its way. In the meantime we plan to aid ia making a  noise like Opportunity Knocking  at the Door.  If we disagree with other people or make enemies we do not  propose to make these column*-  the  vehicle of our antipathy oi  Our "worthy contemporary"  is  troubled because   the proportion  of editors to printers iu the Times  officers unbalanced.   He fears that  "three editors are  more   ihan a  printer and a   devil   can ho* e to  feed and clothe.".     Investigation  discloses'; only  one  man  on   the  premises who expects to edit   the  paper, hut even he does not claim  to be   an   editor.    Editors,   like  poets, are born, not made,   and in  country offices the man who holds  the shears is usually  centent   to  be considered as the  fellow who  is "running the paper" and is accustomed to taking his pay largely in ��� free tickets  to  the   circus.  In the present instance  we hope  not  to  be   forced   to depend  on  anything   in   the    form   ot   an  eleemosynary institution, whether  public br private, tbe people,   the  printer or the  devil,   for   assistance in the matter   of   food   and  clothing.   .Even an editor usually  does  a good   dollar's   worth   of  work for  a  dollar in   pa}*,    and  often takes   chances   on   getting  that dollar.'    But we regret   that  we are unable to produce the paper we wished this week   on   account of the delay in   securing a  printer.    We    believe,   however,  that the position will  be  understood and tbat we shall be judged  by results after we bave had time  to get into 'funning  order.  filed a statement denying the statements.  The first complaint is that the  management of the B. C. Copper  company refused to recognize a  committee from the Greenwood  Miners' Union to adjust all grievances between the B; C. Copper  company and its employees.  The company undoubtedly refused to recognize the union. Undoubtedly the great majority of the  company's employees belonged to  the union. On this point I certainly think that in fair dealing in  industrial occupations there must  be a recognition of the union by.  the employer in all matters in  which a member of the union is  involved. The union simply seeks  by combination to protect its  members, and so long as it does  lhat it seems to me that it  must and should be recognized by  the employer. In this case, however, th|3 employer objects to recognizing this particular union. If  that objection is against unionism  as such, then clearly the employer  is wrong; but if, as the company  maintains in this case, the complaint is against unionism, in the  manner in which it is adopted at  Greenwood, then there may be  some grounds for the refusal to  recognize the union at Greenwood.  The company assert that they have  such grounds by reason of the stand  taken by the union as against nonunion men and against members of  the union who refused to reinstate  themselves in the union. On that  question.they put in evidence certain letters which follow:  Greenwood Miners' Union No.  22.    Greenwood, April 26, 1909.  Mr. Fred Hopkins, Greenwood,  B. C.:  Dear Sin���Take notice that the  members of Greenwood Miners'  Union, at a regular meeting, placed  a fine of $50 against you for refusing to join this organization while  working under our jurisdiction,and  I was instructed to advertise you  as unfair to organized labor, until  such time as you become a member  of this organization and pay the  above fine into the treasury of the  Greenwood Miners' Union.  George Heatherton, Sec.  Suoh action on the part of the  union seems, in my opinion, to depart from the true spirit of unionism which, as I understand it, is to  obtain a fair deal tor the employee.  In my opinion the letters strongly  smack of disloyalty, not only to  unionism, but to the laws of the  country itself, and such a course as  that adopted by the Greenwood  Miners' Union cannot do otherwise  than lead to distrust by the employer, and not only that, but lead  to non-recognition by the employer,  who should fairly recognize his  non-union employees, as well as  his union employees, and these letters certainly give him fair grounds  for Btating that he finds it impossible to recognize the union under  such conditions. I cannot find, by  reason of the date of the letters,  that they were the cause of complaint in tbis matter, but it seems  to me that such letters having come  to the knowledge of the employer  that he is to that extent justified in  refusing to recognize the officials of  the union that acts in that manner.  If ithadnot bpen for this unfortunate evidence I certainly feel  that there was no justification  whatever for the company refusing  recognition of the union.  The employer stands in a peculiar position. He must deal  fairly with his non-union men, as  well as his union meu, and it seems  to me that he is not acting outside  the scope of fairness in protecting  his non-union employee from an  unfair demand made by the union.  And it must be borne in mind  that the employer dealing with the  union is dealing with a body which  has not, in itself, any power to  make a binding contract, and on  this point it seems to me that in  fairness, not only to capital, but to  labor itself, that each union should  have the power to contract. If that  were the case, I think it would  tend much to lessen the feeling of  permanent unrest which seems to  prevail at Greenwood.  These two points being settled, I  can see no reason why the parties  in this dispute cannot get together.  Really the one foundation for the  dispute is based on this one demand, i. e., recognition of the  union, and I think that upon the  elimination of the union's procedure as against non-union men and  K*��  i  i  iiilH  I.

On the question of discrimination I have had some difficulty.  Feeling, as I do, that the company  must recognize the union in dealing  with union employees, I felt tbat  there might be some question on  this point. The dismissal complained of happened at an unfortunate time. The company was cutting down its force. There was a  feeling among the men, and everything that was done on either one  Bide or the other was looked upon  with distrust by the opposite party.  I cannot find on this point that  there was a clear discrimination  against union men as such. There  is suspicion in regard to cause of  dismissal, bnt as it was done at a  time when the company  was cut-  (Continued on Page 3,)  Pacific Hotel  Gribg & Morrison, Prop.

This demand is also one oi  [which I cannot find that the men  Jhave any Corn plaint;, and one which  fill Bpeedily-be remedied by recognition of the union  by the com-  ">y.  7. This demand is one in regard  to the company soliciting the aid  lof the Greenwood Board of Trade  land certain individuals for the purpose bf discrediting the Greenwood  liners* Union.    On thiB point I  [think t|ere was a question that the  [men   Who   signed   the   reaoluiton  Icomplained  of; did  so in all  fairiness and sincerity for the good of  (the community.     The people of  [Greenwood,  suffering ..as. they did  Ifrotm shut-down after shut-down,  [were extremely anxious that work  |contfirti��on thia, the largest prop-  |erty (in-* their com m u nity.    "When  apparently labor troubles bad been  larranged the appearance of a notice  requesting the men not to return  [to   work   until   further   notified,  il though it was accompanied by a  lotice  calling   a   meeting of   the  [union, filled their minds with distrust as to the future labor situation, and they, I think reasonably,  [felt as a Board: of Trade, that a  resolution deprecating, the spirit of  agitation in the district, was one  that would" fairly., meet with approval of all parties'1 without it being suggested that it was in any  way directed against unionism. I  think they were-absolutely fair in  that matter:..and were, acting, as  they thought- in the best interests  of the community, apart altogether  from any solicitation by the company.  I would recommend:  1. That the.union eliminate any  practice pf discrimination as against  non-union men.  2. That upon vthe cessation of  such procedure the company recognize and deal with the union in regard to. all questions affecting unnn  men.  3. That no discrimination be  shown against any person by reason  of his taking active part in the  union.  The whole industrial situation in  this camp is unfortunate. A feeling of distrust pervades the whole  atmosphere, and so long as tbat  feeling continues so long will  trouble continue. Unless some feeling can arise which will tend to a  belief by each party in human nature, even if the party is of the opposite side, no cessation of the present trouble' can be contemplated.  If the employer will fairly recognize fair union labor and the union  will fairly deal with the employer,  then trouble will cease, otherwise  it will continue for ever.  P. E. Wilson, Chairman.'
