And we were unable to bring  the parties involved to an amicable  agreement.  Therefore, the undersigned respectfully submits the following report and  recommendation:  After hearing the evidence -riven by  over thirty witnesses examined, and.  after careful consideration of the same,  it was evident that the charges made  by the Greenwood miners were well  founded. The company, by its failure to produce evidence to the contrary, left the impression that the case  as presented by the union was a very  strong one indeed. That the manager  of  the  B. C. Copper Co-  is a  2. 'I hat active participation in the  work of the union, or the holding of  any political opinions should not interfere with securing or retaining employment.  3. That every facility be given the  employees to take advantage of laws  upon the statute books of British Columbia for the protection of labor.  4. That both parties to rhe dispute lay aside all ill feeling toward  each other, and endeavor to have  more harmonious relations in the  future.  These suggestions, if put into  effect, could not interfere with legitimate mining operations, and would  be mutually beneficial throughout the,  metalliferous mining districts of British Columbia.  There has been scarcely any serious  labor troubles for a number of years,  and this condition is due in a large  measure to the fact that  nearly every  IS LEAVING  FOR THE COAST.  hard man to deal with was fully prov-' company   operating in  the   province  J>  ere  /F  ^  TOILET  ���  Strong alkaline soaps will roughen,  and. if used long, ruin the complexion.

And, in the  opinion of the writer, the difficulties  between the management and the employees were due largely to the failure  of the manager of the company to  meet his employees in a spirit of fairness.- . -  ���   - *  In paragraph .1 (three) of the company's reply to the employees' demand  for a board of investigation, we find  the following: "The company has  never had any relations with the  union," but the evidence shows that  the manager has at various times dealt  with the union in adjusting questions  of wages and conditions.  Tliat the officials of the 13. C. Copper company were doing their utmost  to disrupt the union was amply proven. The discharge of the men who  took any active part in the work of  their organization would eventually  result in crippling the union, and render it ineffective.  This was thc policy of the company as proven by the evidence. Testimony by several of the witnesses  tended strongly to show that a 'black  list" exists in this district.  Men who were not agreeable to  the officials of the 13. 0. Copper Co  had experienced considerable difficulty  in holding positions where any influence could be brought to bear by the  officials of this company- That there  was no necessity nor justification for  the passing of certain resolutions by  the Greenwood Board of Trade was  practically admitted, even by those  who had signed those resolutions  themselves.  *No proof being found with which  to substantiate the recitals contained  in these resolutions, after all the evidence was adduced, the Board endeavored to get the parties to the dispute together, so that if possible they  might arrive at an understanding.  The officials of the union signified  their willingness to confer and settle  on reasonable terms, but the representatives of the company refused  point blank to have any dealings vvith  the union, or to recognize them in  any way as a union  The manifest willingness of the  union to meet the company and settle  on reasonable terms would indicate  that if the company was desirous of  settling the dispute it could be settled  with very little difficulty.  After taking considerable pains to  get the true facts in this dispute, and  having some knowledge of the conditions in this district, the following  would, in my judgment, be a fair  basis of settlement:  1. That the British Columbia Copper company recognize and do business   with   the   Greenwood  Miners'  recognizes the Western Federation of  Miners.  The miners of British Columbia  are an intelligent body of men, and  in their dealings with their employers  they invariably show a spirit of fairness. -If Capitalrinvesten" -in ' vJritish  Columbia is to have smooth sailing it  must be represented by men who are  willing to grant their employees rights  as men and citizens.  Iohn McInnis.  R. K. Steven, for tho past ton  years manager nf the Greenwood  Club, lias resigned liis position,  with the view of leaving for Vancouver about July 1. At the hist  meet iug nf-tlie goneral committee  of the cl ul) this resignation was  reluctantly accepted, a resolution  boing passed by the coin in it tee  and endorsed by tho members  thanking Mr. Steven for bis long  and valuable services and extending very sincere wishes for his  future success iu the new field.  Mr. Steven, thougli still a  young man, ranks as one of the  "..���Id timers1' in Greenwood and  has always been active antl aggressive in all matters pertaining  lo tbe welfare of the city. He  has done much to make tbe Greenwood club the institution which lis  is today, having served it most  lovally and efficiently since "^^J*,  1900. He will be greatly misled  there, as he will generally about  fown. Last May he spent a  month at Vancouver and there  became imbued with the spirit  which seems to take possession  of all who visit the place, and his  decision to cast his fortunes in  lhat great and growing city followed. He has already concluded  arrangemen ts for going into business out there. Mrs. Steven has  been at Vancouver since last  March and is an enthusiast regarding <he big coast city. Her departure is also much felt here and,  with her hii**Viacd, -*be tikes with  her the best wishes of all who  knew them.  OUTLINES OF  CURRENT EVENTS.  That the British-German feeling is not confined to Europe is  the news brought by the Empress  of India, whose passengers s6ate  that not only was there a dispute  over the supplantingof Britishers  by Germans in tbe Chinese railway in North China, which has  resulted in the refusal of British  capitalists to advance any further  monies and in one or two cases  had resulted in a deadlock, but  some consternation had been  caused among Britishers ia the  Orient by tbe report that German  officers would be engaged as  instructors and advisors in the  new navy being organized by the  Chjnese.

The following has been received from the B. C. Copper Co. *.  On the receipt nf Mr. Mclnnis'  report the company at once wrote  Judge VVilsoa denying the statement that the Board had endeavored to get the company and the  union together after the evidence  had all been heard, and asked him  to confirm the denial. In answer  to this, the following telegram  was subsequently received:  Ckanhkook, B. C, June 23.  J. E. McAllister, Green wood, B.C.:  Just received your letter on my  return. You are correct. Onlv  grounds for statement can be  statement from Cronvn that no  use to have suggested conference,  as in face of evidence he knew  you could not concede point.  P. E.  Wilson.  Report of the member of this  Hoard nominated by the company:  At the conclusion of the sessions  of thc Conciliation Hoard, when it  became apparent that it was impossible to make an unanimous report, it  was arranged between the chairman  -ind myself, that as we were entirely  agreed upon all the points in question,'  that we should send in a majority report signed by both of us. Later,  however, the chairman advised me  that, after talking vvith some of the  citizens of Greenwood, he had come  to the conclusion that his report would  have a more beneficial effect on the  laboring classes if he were not associated with the company's nominee in  making it, although he again unqualifiedly agreed with me in the whole  matter.  Having lived for some   jears in the  mining   camps   of  British Columbia,  including   Greenwood,    1   am   thoroughly familiar with labor conditions  there.     It is a fact that the American  labor   organization,    known   as   the  Western   Federation   of Miners, has  for.years been  strenuously  endeavoring to   establish   itself in   the mining  camps of British Columbia     It is notorious that many of the leading spirits of tin's   organization   in   the States  not only countenance   but   encourage  methods and principles which are entirely in' defiance   of law  and order,  and it is  greatly   to  be deplored that  this  organization   should   have   been  permitted to gain any foothold   whatever in Canada.  It is hard for citizens  of the eastern part of this country to  understand to what lengths prominent  members of this organization are prepared to go in their effort to dominate  other members, and to enforce   their  wishes upon any community in which  they   operate.    It -is  clear from evidence given   at  trials in the Western  States, that violations of thc law sometimes   involving   crimes   of violence,  and even murder, have been committed and justified   by prominent members   of this   organization,  and   their  defence has been paid for by the unions  and public subscriptions made for them  through the unions.  After a most  careful   cousidera-  Mr. W. K. Gooding, teller of  the Grand Forks branch of the  Eastern Townships Bank, arrived  here on Monday to lake charge  temporarily of the bank's Keremeos office, lit is expected that  Mr. Longburst of Grand Forks  will be appointed manager h-^re,  but owing to the absence of the  Grand Forks manager he is unable to leave there at present.���  Keremeos Chronicle.  James J. Hill is rushing tbe  completion of hi*?- Penticton B. C,  branch with the object of getting  a stroug foothold in the Rocky  Mountain section of Canada, according to Mayor Jamieson of  Calgary, who today said that Mr.  Hill had informed bim to that  effect. Hiil intends,"the Mayor  says, to reach out and keep the  prairie provinces. Hill said the  people.of western Canada need  not be surprised if they found that  he had swooped down into their  territory as that is his intention.  Editok Times:  In answer to the appeal   mado  by Mr. George Heatherton in your  last  week's  issue of the  Times,  he states that 1 am unfair to organized labor.    How he comes to  this conclusion  I   fail to see.    J  might  be  unfair  to  the Miners'  Union, but I am not unfair to organized labor,   as I have  been a  member of my own trades union  for the last five years, and  carry  cards to certify. Does Mr. Heatherton think that I, as an electric-  Ian, working at my trade, am going to join the  Miners'  Union,  when in the district  the international Brotherhood of   Electrical  Workers can look after my interests?    Would  it  be right to ignore my  fellow  workers iu the  same field  and join the Miners'  Union?    I  am  sure the  answer  would be in the negative.  Respectfully,  George Aitken.

A very pretty wedding took  place in St. Jude's Church ou  Wednesday, when the Rev. V.

The Church was beautit'ull}-  decorated witb evergreens and  white flowers, an especially  graceful feature being a huge-  bell of white flowers over the  steps to the chancel. The ladies  of St. Jude's Church were responsible for the decoration.  The -church was filled with  friends and relations of the contracting parties.  Promptly at 12 o'clock the Kev.  V. Venables accompanied by Mr.  J.T. Beattie the groom aud Mr.C.  Thomas groomsman took    their  place at the chancel steps.    With  the opening strains of thc hymn  ���4 The Voice That Breathed O'er  Eden," the  bride,   leaning on the  arm of   her   uncle,   Mr.    Robert  Wood, arrived, and the ceremony  began.    The   service   was   fully  choral   and will  long be remembered for its impressiveaess.  After the ceremony the bridal  party returned to the home of thc  bride's mother when the register  wus signed and a charming wedding breakfast much enjoyed.  The happy couple left on the afternoon train for the Coast and  will bo away some time, a large  number of friends seeing them off  at the station. On their return  thev will occupy the hous" overlooking the city hall, the former  residence of Mrs   K.   K    cneven.

JUNE 25,1W9  VOX POPULI.  And now cometh one bearing a  disquisition on The Essentials of  Leather Leggings lor Mining Experts and desires thc printing of  liis effusion in the Times, also the  sending of copies of the paper to  certain friends and relativ.es who  will note with pride his ambitious  cifurt. So arises the delicate  question as to the extent to which  tlie local paper should be the voice  of the people and who the people  are lo whom belongs the right of  a hearing by proxy.  First we must consider the lim-  i unions with which we have to  deal, the lack of space which,  through constant use in making  of excuses, is the newspaper man's  friend. Here at once is imposed  the necessity of becoming the  voice of the people as a whole,  and not, as a general thing, the  voice of the individual. And usually the paper must become the  interpreter of the voice, which,  ���-.t.raj-gely enough, is often a silent one, finding many forms of  expressions not vocal.  f'ut���and here is the real matter, to which we urge attention���  we are always ready and glad to  rective from any individual anything pertinent to the ends we  iiave in view, which is the making llie paper an uplifting force  in the community. We want it  appreciated that the Timer, represents the people and stands for  certain purposes aud ideals, not  perhaps immediately acchievable  but towards wuich we may work  our way. Any suggestion, any  articles which, directly or indirectly, touch upon the ends we  have in view will be hailed witb  mueh pleasure, and we admit at  once that the writer or author of  such articles or suggestions may  be a far better interpreter ot the  "voice" than is he who sits before tbe offiicial typewriter.  But, lest we be convicted of tht  legal tendency to hide   an idea in  a mass ol  verbiage,    the   point.  boiled down, is this:   Thccolnmn  oi the Times are open to  all who  have something of value to offer,  and we shall greatly rejoice if  enough interest in the work the  paper is attempting be taken to  lead to our being able to publish  a quarter-page of pertinent com  munications in every issue.  A LENDING LIBRARY.  That a lending library is something more than a convenience  to the reflidents in a small towu,  especially one that is some distance from thc largest centers, is  indisputable. Particularly is this  true at thc present time in Greenwood which, more than most small  communities, contains people who  enjoy the best books and like to  keep in touch with the latest productions of good writers.  But books cost money, and  money is not superabundant these  days in the smaller cities, Greenwood, we regret to admit, being  no exception to the rule. At  Grand Forks the lending library  has solved the problem, and has  proved to be no problem in itself,  as it is a paying concern. It is  cared for by one of the prominent  booksellers and stationers and  is of great popularity among  the many who read a good deal  and who would find it difficult to se  cure,at a twentieth of the preseut  expense, as satisfactory an opportunity to keep abreast with current literature. The system is  simple and entails no great a-  raount of labor. The plan followed is that the customer shall  pay the regular price for the first  book taken out of the library, a  small fee being charged for the  use of subsequent volumes.  That this would bean agreeable  and paying occupation for the  librarian is proven in the results  shown in other small cities where  the library has been established.  And the library would have, to  a degree, an educational value.  Of course the ''ten best sel-lers"  would be available, and admittedly the productions of modern  fiction could not all be classed  with some of the well advertised  breakfast foods as productive of  mental and moral progress and enlightenment, but as a rule the  books would be good and would  furnish farmore satisfactory grazing ground for theomniverous readers than some of the magazines  of the day which are now called  upon to supply the vacancy.  Many of the "old timers" plan  to visit the Alaska-Yukon-Pacifc  exposition, but there is aheady  on the ground one who may certainly claim to be the original  holder cjf the title. Tlusoldtimer  is described as a "mummied dinosaur or trachadou" and he is supposed to have been dead some  three million years. Not much  of Colonel Trachadon's antecedent is known, except that he died  suddenly in Wyoming on an extremely hot day with his feet in  the air and then lay out in the  sun for a few thousand years, thus  becoming a mummy instead of a  dislocated skleton. His sikn is  still intact, albeit very much  wrinkled, as becoming ripe old  age   Next winter you can get ice for yourself, bul now you mustphone B51 for it.  you moat conclusive evidence that  there has been no discrimination,  not only in the cases cited in the  application, but also at any time,  and in addition we shall show you  why it is not practicable tp accede  to the demand made in the application that any grievance that may  arise be adjusted through a committee of the Greenwood Miners'  Union of the Western Federation  of Miners."  The address of the secretary of  the union was as follows:  ������The members of Greenwood  Miners' Union in making application for a Conciliation and Investi  gatiou Board, under the Industrial ���  Disputes Act, do not wish to leave  the impression on the public that  we consider this act as 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 reasons for thinking so are  that the corporations can ignore it  in nearly every caRe, as Bhown in  one case in which Greenwood Miners' Union was interested, and it  would have been to our benefit to  have a Board appointed, but the  Deputy Minister advised us that  the Department of Labor did not  consider a copper mine a public  utility.  "' Iu May, 1907, the members of  the Greenwood Miners' Union, believing tliey were entitled to a higher rate of ���/���age'-*, as 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 on tlie different mining  companies operating properties in  the jurisdiction of the Greenwood  Miners' Union, f**>r an advance of  fifty cents per day in wages, and  believing that copper inines would  come under the Industrial Disputes  Act, we made the demand to take  effect the 1st of 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 Co., through mismanagement, and if we could get a board  to demand the company books the  management of the B. C. Copper  Co. would grant our demands before he would allow an investigation.  "But as the charges has often  been made that the Western Federation of Miners is a lawless organization, we invite you to make  a thorough investigation into our  methods of doiug business, as we  have nothing to conceal, and iu  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 wage.0,  the managers of the different companies operating in the Boundary  asked the committee 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 committee met them  they asked for time to go to New  York to interview the executive  board of the different companies  operating in the Boundary, and the  committees representing the different unions grauted them the time  on condition that they would give  an answer before 1st of June, 1907.  " After the managers returned,  and we realized after meeting tliem  that they did not intend, to grant  tlie raise on the pitta that with copper at 21 cents a pound there was  very little profit for them. After  showing them that 50 cents per day  advance in wages 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 they could produce copper  and lay it iu New York at between  !> and 10 cents per 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  we sent to the Minister of Mines, his  deputy notified us that  we did not  come under the Lemieux Act, as  the copper mines were not considered by the department as a public  utility. Then realizing that we  had all the power of capital, with  the public press, including mining  journals of Canada and America  printing lying reports sent out by  the agents of the Mine Owners' association against ns, we arrived at  a compromise.  *��� After the union voted on the  scale and we 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, eo that they could make  their cards, supplied by the company daily, for that and other purposes. Mr. McAllister sent word  to the superintendent of the mine  to take the copy of the scale down,  as he had not been notified officially by the Greenwood Miners'  Union of the adoption of the scale,  We had theu to make a trip to the  B. C. Copper Co. 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 with, and Mr.  McAllister started in very soon to  show us that any man taking active part iu the union could not  work for him.  -' Notwithstanding the fact that  we did not ask for a raise for six  months after copper had advanced  to 24 ceuts, and when we did demand the raise we gave the management over one month's notice,  but when the price oi copper dropped and the conditions in the labor  market were favorable to the operators, the various managers of the  larger 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 said  Lemieux Act, as the minister of  Labor had given a decision after  we had settled our grievances iu  May, 1907, that a copper mine was  not a public utility.  "In May, 1908, the B. C. Copper Co. resumed operations under  a reduced scale, but as copper was  nearly one cent lower than when  they shut down, they could not  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, and the resumption of  work in May, 1908, Mr. McAllister  was very active in getting the  Greenwood Board of Trade to adopt  certain resolutions placing all the  responsibilities of the closing down  of the B. C. Copper Go.'s properties on the laboring class, and the  same resolutions were published  and commeuts made in a great  many of tho mining journals published in America. Mr. McAllister also tried to influence foremen  in charge of other properties near  Greenwood not to employ certain  men that belonged to the union,  giving as a reason that if the said  foreman employed union men that  they would divide their wages with  the men that he was trying to drive  out of Greenwood, and he also  made the remark that he had two  good men in the union to report  what was going on.  " In the appointmeut of E. G.  Warren to the position of manager  to the B. C.

Lewis  of the Greenwood Board of Trade,  and the recognized political boss in  Greenwood of the Conservative  party in British Columbia, 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 for were because the Greenwood Miners' Union were trying to  get the bpnefft- of certain laws on  the statute books of British Columbia, namely, the Master and  Servant's Act and the Workmen's  Compensation Act, and we believe  that we can show to the satisfaction of the Board that he has deliberately schemed to impress a company doctor on his employees to defeat tbe objects of said Acts. We  also believe thnt we can show to  the f-atisfaction of this Board tbat  there has been uo effort on the part  of the present management of the  B. C. Copper Co. to operate the  inines and smelter of the company  for the interests of the stockholders  as a whole, but their ouly object  was to handle a large tonnage, aud  in trying to treat a large tonnage it  resulted iu enormous losses to the  B.

"  Attached to the address of the  ,- secretary of tlie union were the following demands:  1. That the management of the  B. C. Copper Co. recognize a committee from Greenwood Miners'  Union No. 22, W. F. M., to adjust  yall grievances between the B. C.  Copper Co. and its employees.  ' 2. That the B. C. Copper Co",  cease discriminating against members of Greenwood Miuers' Union  ;;-Nb. 22, W. F. M.  3. That the B. C. Copper Co.- reinstate J. B. King and T. Y. McKay in their employment, and pay  the said J. B. King and T. Y. McKay their wages in full from the  time of their dismissal until snch  time as they are reinstated.  A. That the B.   C.   Copper Co.  (-ball not discriminate against men  on account of their political opin-  '���- ions. '     '  5. That the B. C Copper Co.  shall not alter the existing conditions1 of employment of their employees without notifying the president or secretary of tho Greenwood  Miners' Union No. 22, W. P.'-M.f  and all notifications shall be in  writing.  6. Tliat the management of the  B. C. Copppr Co., or any of its  ofnV'-iivls, shall not use any influence,  or in any manner interfere with  their employees in their choice of  doctor or doctors.  7. That the management of the  B. C. Copper Co. cease in soliciting  the Board of Trade, and certain individuals, for the purpose of discrediting Greenwood Miners' Union  No. 22, W. F. M.  The first demand is for the recognition of the Greenwood Miners'  Union No. 22, Western Federation  of Miners.  The company claimed that Bome  of their employees are not members  of the union, and as to these it is  y manifestly unfair, under any circumstances, .that they should have  ,'to adjust grievances through the  union-. "-*���' The company also produced   letters  sent to  their, em-  v*i  .ployees.     (Letters   published  in  Judge Wilson's report last week.)  The secretary of the union,  George Heatherton, was called and  admitted that these letters were  regularly authorized at a meeting  . of the union and that he had. signed  and sealed them under such authorization and sent them to the men  whom tbey are addressed and that  this was their regular method of  procedure. He further testified  that they got new men by '* rustling " for them. They approached  a man two or three times, asking  him to join the union, and if he  did not do so they considered him  "unfair to organized labor" and  advertised him in their officicial organs as '-unfair to organized labor." On being asked if he thought  the union had the right to do this,  he said they had���that might was  right in the matter.  The company claimed that it waB  impossible for them to recognize or  deal with a union which would authorize such methods of blackmail  and intimidation, and that to negotiate with a man who justified and  approved such methods was impossible.  I think the company's position in  this matter is amply justified. I  have frequently read in the official  organs of the labor unions the advertisements referred to and have  Been many hand bills posted in  Miners'Union hall containing the  names and descriptions of men  who, it was alleged, were unfair to  organized labor, and were, therefore, "scabs," and were toget.no  employment of any kind. In such  cases these bills were scattered  broadcast through the mining country, both north and south of the  line���a terrible condition of affairs  to be permitted in a country where  law and order are supposed to prevail.  The second demand deals with  discrimination against members of  the Greenwood Miners' Union.  The representatives of the union  brought a number of witnesses who  testified as to discrimination. These  stated that a number of employees  had been dismissed shortly after  having shown activity in the affairs  of the union, or in canvassing the  employees of  the   company   who  were not members, with the object  of getting them to join the union.  In the majority of the cases mentioned, it was Bhown that the positions of the men dismissed were  filled by other members. cf the  Miners' Union, and that in all the  cases there was a good reason for  the dismissal of the men. These  facts were brought out from the  witnesses produced by the union  itself, and the company did not  bring in any evidence on the poinc,  as they claimed that no discrimination against members of the union  had been proved.  I cannot find tbat any discrimination has been proved. In fact, it  is quite clear from the evidence of  the union's own witnesses that the  company never made any enquiry  as to whether a man was a member  of the union or not.  The third demand embodied specific instances of alleged discrimination. The evidence given by J. B.  King shows that no discrimination  was made in his case. He admits  tbat he was told, when "he got  his time," that the company was  reducing its forces and was giving  the preference to married men. He  also testified that men were discharged at'the same time that he  was, and while he thought that  men had been taken on since, he  waa not positive of this. He ad  mitted that he had been guilty of  iufractions of the rules.  The evidence given by T. Y. McKay shows clearly that the company was reducing its forces at the  Mother Lode mine where he was  employed; that quite a number of  the men were laid off before he  was, and that the man who took  his position on the work. wa*. a  member of the Miners' Union. He  also admitted that he had broken  some of the rnles and had been absent frequently from work during  the time immediately preceding his  discbarge.  I do not find any discrimination  in either of these cases, as the company was justified, when makis-g a  reduction of its staff, in selecting  the men beBt fitted for tbe work,  and the fact that union men took  the places of these two shows there  was no discrimination against the  Miners' Union. I do not think  that any injustice was done to either  J. B. King or T. Y. McKay in  their discharge, and therefore c4n  not find that the company should  pay either of these meu auy wages  as is demanded.  The fourth demand speaks of  discrimination ou account of political opinions. There was no evidence produced that any such discrimination took place.  The fifth demand, that the com-'  pany should not alter any existing  condition of employment of their  employees without notifying the  union, ib of a very general nature.  No evidence was given by.the union  supporting tlie demand or pointing  out more specifically the conditions  referred to. I do not think it either  practicable or reasonable that the  company should be required to give  such notice.  The sixth demand deals with the  question of a choice of doctor for a  the men. The union produced no  witnesses to show that the present  system worked any hardship upon  any of the employees of the company. This was the only question  tlte company produced any evidence on, as its manager had-taken  a personal interest aud pride in  improving the condition of its employees so far as medical and hospital attendance is concerned. The  company went fully into the arrangements made in this respect,  aud showed that the change iu the  arrangements, which appears to be  found fault with in this demand,  has operated very greatly to the  advantage of the employees and  their families. The change spoken  of involved the election of doctors  by tbe employees, the majority in  favor of the present doctors and of  the new system being overwhelming, and as a result the men now  have a well equipped emergency  hospital and surgery at the Mother  Lode mine, and all first aid necessaries at the stnelfcpr nnd at the different other properties operated by  tbe company. The monthly fee  uuder the new arrangement includes a great number of common  diseases for which the inen formerly  had to pay the ordinary doctor's  fees, and the fees for attendance on  families of employees have been  very materially reduced by the new  syFtem.'  The seventh demand speaks of  the solicitation of thu V, >u<l of  Trade and certain individuals  by the B C. Copper company,  for the purpose of discrediting  tbe union. The union cllidals  produced a large number of witnesses, members of the Board of  Trade, nominally to testify to this  point, but quite evidently for tlie  purpose of intimidating the trades  people aud others called, and of injuring their trade with the laboring  class. AH their men stated positively tliat no solicitation of any  kind had been made to them for  the purpose of discrediting the  i.nion, and I find that the management of the company has not so  solicited either the Board of Trade  or other individuals, as is charged.
