'No. 20';..;���������'<  Decision Arrived at Monday by Miners' Union  May Lead to Prolonged Struggle.  DIFFICULTY-IS LONG STANDING  .Each Party Accuses the Other of Bad Faith in Carrying  Out Terms of Agreoment Entered Into  Six Months Ago.,  ���������Monday last f"wo meetings of tlie  '���������> .Greenwood    Miiurs'   union   wore  '��������� lield, at' 1   ind 7:3n p.   in.. to consider   the  smelter   situation.   -At  . both meetings it was decided lh.it  ' immediate action should ho taken,  - looking" to a  permanent  scale of  wages that could   only   lie  interpreted in one way by management  ��������� find  men, thus doing away  with  .the petty encroachments that have  been practised since the May agrei -  ment was entered into.    Th" company was given  until   Wednesday  noon to agree to a scale" of  wages  or bank or draw  their  (ires.    The  action of tlie  men   was   nod unexpected by those familiar with con-  . ditious at the smelter,  and  that  eventualy recourse .must   be had  to harsh   measures to   force   tl.e  managemen tto do justice. So it is  probable there will be a strike, ai.d  if f.o, it will be to a  finish.  Many reasons could lie given for  this state of all lirs. and the ni in-  ngement  is not altogether without  'blame.*  Low wages, and a general  policy of "chcapn.ss'' has been tlie  order, until a large majority of tin-  old employees of the smelter haw  'quit in disgust.    Men who endeav-  ' ored  to  become prolicie.it in tin-"*'  "wtfrk 'have  been overlooked wh������'n  da Tine for promotion.    One of tin;  licst furnace men in the employ <>l  the company quit a short time ag ���������  for   the   reason that  he had beei,  twice turned down when vacancies  occurred.    In  both instances nit-n  were imported to take thc position*,  one from Tennessee and the othei  from Anaconda, Mont.      It is said  that had tlie furnace man not bi-en  active in   union   affairs he would  have been promoted.    Thus it will  be seen that there is no incentive  to efficient  work,   and as\i consequence the b(St men leave and seek  ''situations in smclteis where-ability,  and conscientious   work   lead to  promotion.      Much    of the  inure  difficult-work  is therefore now in  charge of incxperiencd mm, and  it is a common thing for a furnace  to 'frccce" or "run away," thereby  entailing   outlay to the company,  whiclva little horse sense and liberality  on  thc part of the, management  would have obviated.    Thi.-  .policy of the company is very discouraging  to the  men, for instead  of receiving promotion as a reward  for efficiency, they are continuously  placed on thc defensive   in   theii  light against tlie petty encroachments on their rignts by tho management.    It is impossible for nn-n  to   give   their best efforts to their-  work  when they   are in''dread of  some new scheme to do'them out of  a  few .cents of their hard earned  wages.    The trouble witli the manager oKhc sine'tor is that-he hasn't  'tumbled to; tho fact that white men  imiisfc   be   treated   as   such.    The  '"nigger''    driving   policy   won't  -work  in a civilized country among  ''intelligent,    thinking    workmen.  We believe if there hud been any  -attempt made to do what was right  'the.manager would luve been met  .more than half way by the men.  flhe work it) hard,   trying on the  fUerves,  dangerous-and unhealthy,  .and the policy of tho company has  made almost every situation at the  .smelter just a common everyday  forlliodox hell.  Following is tho scompany's  ^statement as it appeared in a  special .number of a district paper  ,last Saturday:  To THE WHIM  It having conic to our knowledge  itbafc during the past week oiisrep-  jreaontatioriH havo boon widespread  (Qvqr thc city that thc company bas  failed in its obligations to its employees, it is deemed wise to make  known to all interested the follow-  ingstatement of facts:  Last May, after many conferences between the management of  the company and committee of  smelter employees, the company  offered tlie maxim u in scale of  wages which it was willing to pay,  with thc understanding that, if accepted, it was to remain in effect  without question, for three years.  In this scale, Charge-Wheelers  were to be paid 83.00 for eight  hours work, and Coke and Briquette  Wheelers S2.70 for eight hours  work.  In the present system of working  the Charge-Wheeler has been replaced" by a Loader at the same  pay as the Coke Wheeler. The,  only dissatisfaction of which the  company is officially aware is, that  these Helpers think they should  have the i-aine pay as the Loaders,  who are responsible, for woi"hiii"  the charges coirectly.  T.ie new scale went into effect  on .Ma}- 23 rd.  Such of the, smelter employees  ���������is were members of the Union  having j jj^tte'.^ /b^t ,cl,m,iivojyj njz.i,  iion forbade, them from making  signed agreements, but not iVoin  making verbal agreements, each  man before going to work under  the new seale had the .-cale read to  him, aud gave his assent before  witnesses to abide by the same until May 1st, 1909.  The text of the agreement was as  follows:  The employees of The British  Columbia Copper Company,, Ltd.,  agree to the following scale of  wages, which is to, remain in cflxvt  until May 1st, 1909.  (Here follows the itemized scale.)  The only special provi.-ion in tin-  to do the fair thing, the smultei  here tried to pay the powcrhousi  men off at $3.00. ' This tho m<ji-  would not accept, and finally compelled the' company to pay S3.50.  ov 10 cents Ion par d ty th.in at  Grand Forks.  Instead of paying all powerhouse iricn S3.50 as agreed upon,  one of the men w<*is paid off this  week at $3 per day, or $15 less per  month than management agreed to  pny-"  3. In case furnace "froze,''  men were to receive $3.00 for  8 hours in clearing it out. Last  furnace dug out at rate of S2.70, or  30  cents per day less than agrce-  J.   MePliee is-now manager  ment. This work requires a new  paii of shoes each da}', and it can  easily be seen how much there is  to thc good to men even at S3 per  day.  'J.    During   construction    some  men  rc-eivei"  .-eale of wages was for tlie Power  llou.-e men who, with the m.w  plant would have more maehinciy  io Idok after, and who, when die  new works were atai-ucd, were, increased 50e per. day of eight hours.  Since the agreement went into  effect the company has faithfully  lived up to its obligations in the  matter, and has exceeded the same  iu numerous cases when it could  consistently do so.  The company regards the wage  scale as a closed matter for thc  next three \eirs. and "believes that  this agreement made in gocd faith  with its 'employees, will be faithfully observed by them.  The B. C. Coi>n-:u Co., Ltd.  THE MEN'S STATEMENT  1. In May when agreement  was entered into the charge wheelers and coke wheelers presented no  grievances, therefore these positions  were .not .considered at that time,  and had no place in the agreement.  , 2. in jobs not specified the.  I'ommitscc said they could not arrange for a scale of wages, as they  did not know what 'the duties in  connection therewith Would, be.  Mr. MeAllisfcjr said:. "This company will do .the fair thing and  will pay the same wages as other  smelters." This has not been done  as the following will show:  Loadeis' helpers receive at f J rand  Forks S3.00 per thy, here they are  .piicl 2.70.  In Grand Forks the head loader  gets 83.15, hen- 83.00  ''Motor-melt on feed llnor get S3.15  in Grand Forks; here they get  ������3.00.  Slag men, Grand Forks, $3.G0;  hero $3.00.  $3 instead of ������2.70  on heavy work, but carpenters'  helpers received $2.70 instead of  ������3.00; Masons' helper's $2.70 instead of $3.50. The latter amount  paid by contractors.   ,  5. It yas understood at time of  agreement that' feed floor men  should receive, same wages as is  paid for the same work in Grand  Forks, but are being paid 30 cents  K'ss per day. >���������  The foregoing are the main  points of difference, but there are a  large number of minor issues that  require adjustment, which singly  do not amount to much, but tnk- n  collectively means . very much to  the men.  In addition to these, there is no  guarantee of the permanency of  any agreement. The men feel as  if they were standing an a load of  powder which is liable to explode  at any time. They havo to bo continually on their gir'rd to protect  themselves from ;<--iiy attempts "to  reduce their ������.\,i-s or add to t'hc  wore i:o.y li ing- performed by  hem Jr- dojs not appear to be a  question of how much profit-can be  made in .-in lting the ores. . It is  eviileWlybne of'if "we can produce  1000 pounds of coppc- with 200  men at. $3, would, it not be cheap'er  io produce. 500 pounds of copper  with 200 Hum at $2.99 per day.  That the conip toy's position is a  weak one, is thown by the fact  that they resorted to boosting their  side of the case through the press,  by getting out a special number of  the Boundary Cree'c Times Saturday last. The Lbd:ik was also  asked to get out a special stating  the company's side, but refused.  It may also be noticed in the  two statements published above  that th'e company deals in gciier-  alitKs and the men'particularize.  In other words, the company say  in a general way that they have  lived op to the agreement of May  last, the men give particular instances in which the company have  violated the terms of their agree-  in --lit.  Business men of the city are distrusted. No sensible business man  would attempt to do business along  the linos followed by the manager  of the smelter. A merchant cannot do business by antagonizing  hi-i employees; neither can a  smelter manager.  It is hoped that there will bo no  necessity for a .strike, as it is said  Mr. Kcffcr has taken control, and  any agreement entered into by him  will be, carried out to the smallest  detail. But if there is ��������� a strike,  now is the time to win it. Tho  intolerable state of affairs in the  paut six. months cannot continue.  If it is to bo a strike, it will  probably be a long and bitter one.  provided there is j(not a change of  management-. Any talking should  be done in ,tbo union rooms only.  Neither tho street nor the saloon  is 'tho phcc.for expressions of  opinion as to how the strike is or  should be conducted. The executive committee should do any talking that is done outside the union  rooms. Ilemembor 'that a strike  cannot bo won by booze except it  remains in the bottles. Keep  away .from the company's properly.  The farther the better. At any  time some foolish or vicious person  may, through folly or to injure tlie  tho union, do damage to property.  - Nelson  There  was1 1'4 degrees' of frost  Sunday   morning,   and the straw-  icrry season is over.

Lewis Hinds, :if Vancouver, who  is  operating  the antimony claims  up  the  North   Fork of Carpenter  Creek,   is  working  tlie' old Great  Western   mine at MeGuigau with  very   satisfactory    results.      This  property is situated about a quarter  of  a  mile  below the Washington,  and   has  been   practically  closed  down for the past eight years, al-'  though   Geo.  Turner,   one  of  the  shareholders       in       tlie     Great  Western  company,  did a little development  work last year and the  season before.    Seven or eight men  are   at  present   employed   at the  mine and a car of ore is ready for  shipment.     There is considerable  concentrating ore   in    the   Great  Western, and a custom   mill iu the  neighborhood  would prove a good  thing  for  the  property.     A large  amount of Great Western ore was  put through  the  old Washington  mill when it was running.  Although there is little to be  heard about the Rambler-Cariboo  just now, the carefully laid plans  of development are being steadily  carried out. All the available-  forces at the command of the management are being concentrated  up in the difficult task of upraising,  from the long tunnel to the old  workings. It will be several weeks  yet beforo this is completed. To  secure good air is one of the problems that -confronts Mr. Zwieky,  and the higher tho upraise goes,  the moro perplexing becomes -the  problem. The continuation of the  main tunnel to tap the lead beJow  where tho strike was made a- fow  months ago has been abandoned  until such time as the upraise has  been finished. Nothing much in  ���������the "way of blocking out the ore  bodies can be done until these two  ���������stages of tlie work'are completed.  Messrs.

This paper is in a position to  state that the nominations for the  provincial legislature will bo held  a week from Wednesday and the  elections a week following. ��������� ur  reasons for making this statement  are as follows :  1.

Premier MuBride will address the electors of Siiauichtown  next Tuesday.  3. Later��������� He will not enlighten  Saauichtown until Wednesday.  4. Bob Green will spend Christmas at Kaslo.  5. Bill Hunter, of SiSverton,  waB in the Boundary last week.  This is very significant.  G. J. K. Brown has returned  from the Okanagan. This is por-  tentioiis.  7. Dick and J. H. have quarreled.  8.

Dick and J. H. have "ifTade  up."  14. Election will be brought on  while Duncan Boss is at Ottawa.  This happy circumstance will give  the Conservatives a fighting  chance.  15. J. A. Macdonald is thinking  out a great "constructive" policy,  and John Oliver is silent. Both  very portentious.  1C. Cowan should have gone to  Ottawa with McBride.  17. The Similkameen Liberals  have, in convention assembled,  passed resolutions of confidence  in Sir Laurier, Duncan Boss,  Fielding's honesty, Hyman's purity, Tcmpleman s Grand Trunk  telegrams, and the forced ballot  box.  All- these signs and portents  would indicate that a general election will be held two weeks from  Wednesday. Should a change of  date be found necessary, the notice  will appear in the advertising columns of thfs paper.  the ..Greenwood smelter, in his  dealings with his, men, that he  hasn't mixed his charges properly  ���������a little short on fluxes���������therefore  his human!" furnaces are  contin-  1  ually freezing up. Again, these  human furnaces, after the freezing  process, cannot be cleared with  charges of dynamite. The management of the Greenwood smelter  is sufficiently conversant with the  business in which he is engaged to  understand bur allusion, and sufficiently intelligent and broad-  minded to devize some method  and carry it into effect by which the  human ' furnaces will not be continually freezing up. We might  take up the economic side of the  question, but we give the management of the smelter credit of being  shrewd enough to know that one  contented worker is worth two  discontented ones. A few cents  a day extra to men in responsible  positions, may avert hundreds of  dollars of loss. For instance, it is  very necessary that a large number of the men employed about  thc smelter should not- have wage  difficulties to contend with. Their  undivided attention is necessary to  carry the ore through the several  processes from the bins uutil it has  passed through the converter. In  some of these refilling processes a  few seconds means the loss or the  saving to the company of hundreds  or thousands of dollars. If the  men are continuously expecting 5  cents here or 10 cents there taken  from their wages, or a half- or an  hour added to their time, they a;-e  not likely to take that interest in  their work which they otherwise  would if conditions were more favorable.

John Burns has just moved out of  thc modest bouse in which he has  spent mauy happy years, iuto one  of a kind befitting his dignity and  salary.

Copper company's smelter and  the   men, owing it is said to slight  infractions of the agreement made  last May.   That a serious difficulty  Bboiild arise would be unfortunate  for all the parties interested, and  it  is hoped  that the questions at  issne  can be  settled without recourse to a strike.    It is particularly   unfortunate   that   Frederic  Keller, M.  E., the consulting engineer for the company, {3 not in a  poaitien to deal directly with the  men employed at the smelter.    It  may   bo  safely   stated   that   the  greater     number      of     strike.-!  in the United States and Canada  are caused more through want of  confidence in the management than  from conditions actually existing.  With a superintendent or manager  of a large coucern in whose honor  and   word the men can place implicit confidence, the little difficulties are easily smoothed over, or  more often ovet looked.   Therefore,  it is particularly unfortunate that  the employees of the smelter cannot take their grievances direct to  Mr. Koffer, %nd settle them for all  time.    The policy in vogue since'  the present manager took charge of  tho smelter is one that cannot be  commended by outsiders, or that  will gain tbe confidence or respect  of the men employed by tbe com-  pauy.

Too often a failure  of what was a most promising venture can be directly cha9ed to a  greenhorn manager ��������� who was a  "good fellow," spent his money  (or rather the company's) freely,  and allowed the mine to .run itself  until the treasury was exhausted.

Here is a chunk of wisdom from  an eastern publication, which applies in every point to prevailing j  conditions in the the entire Sump-1  ter district, and should be read  and digested by a host of people:  Why do mining companies that  have good properties invariably experience Buch difficulties and bo  many setbacks before getting on a  paying basis? is a most natural  question, one often asked by the  investor and prospective mine  owner. There are indeed few of  tbe successful companies of today  that did not have a severo struggle  for existence at some time in their  youth, and perhaps were closed  down one or more times on account  of financial difficulties, or dissatisfaction among their owners.  Of course, thc aim and end of  every company is to establish a  dividend paying tuine. To bring  tlis about a vein of ore sufficient  in size and richness is the first requisite. Then, after the capital  necessary to properly develop the  prospect is assured, comes the point  on which binges the future of tbe  company. Three-fourths of tbe  failures in the mining field can be  traced to this one factor���������improper  management. Large bodies of ore  are to be found iu many districts  that are practically untouched, although years ago elaborate expert  reports showed that thousands of  toiiB of ore were "in sight,''and  careful estimates at? to the cost of  extraction and reduction-showed a  handsome balance on the right side  of the lodger; and yet, after a few  months, or possibly years, of de-  development work, tbe propositions  have been abandoned.

O   BOX   268  Apropos ~ of the discussion of the  hair-trigger order of the boss re-'  former   of '-'the   perirfd'tohavft the  English people attend to their impelling,   there   comes   to   mind   the  troublous times in newppapcr attics  in   the   '60s   and' '70s, when the  .Webster people were infusing ginger iuto their    dictionary . in   the  shape of emasculated words whose  verility the Philadelphia  lexicographers r-were very- anxious to preserve, and Samuel  Bowie-*  (who  would   have been somewhat of a  God if he had not been tethered in  a rural pastnre) was making a reform iu' capitalization  that really  did more to soothe the-esthetic eye  than anything iu typography that  had been suggested by an artistic  spirit   in   100   years.-   .Welwters  were cutting out the superfluous  letters that really robbed no word  of its claim to'a legitimate parentage,  aud  though  the  newspapers  mostly swore by Worcester, tlmv  gradually cut out the non-e.-semials  and even the old Ronton Traveler  went afoot with  two l's in its head  and one in its news body, much to  tho amusements of the .cubs up  under the rafters, who were always  as great sticklers for consistency as  the cubs  under the vaulted dome-  were at a later day.  But Sam   Bowles w.'is a reftl re  former, who did not win-your mind  by first assaulting your sen -es.  il������  saw the cruditv of fill in'/a run':*.-  paper page  with startling, impem-  inet,  cockey,    swaggering  capita!  letters,    when    the   littla  fellows  could  tell  their  story  more mildest ly and therefore more effectively.  The    great     big   tefoi'iner.   Sam  Bowles ordered that henceforth the  Springfield  Republican   would  no  longer   appear    like   an   auction  poster, with capital letters sprinkled  in  with- ever}' excuse for a noun,  no matter how remotely connected  with   the    proper   parent.    . Tho  order   may   have   grated  a little  harsh'y on  the linger tips of the  old-time compositors, who held to  their precedents mach more closely,  than a lawyer in his attempts to  find    an    excuse  to   "do"   you.  Those were the days when good  men traveled  to 6ee the country,  gain experience and'a livlihood at  the same time.    Every office has a  sublist, and the stranger with an  ability to stick up twelve or fourteen thousand ems a   night was  welcome in an office with open arms  given a "night on" or a frame if  he'd   take   i*".     Every night saw  some new compa in tbe long rows  of frames under the green shaded  gas lights,  pegging away for diiar  life to lift a respectable string, and  in   the   morning   many  of these  strings were cashed up for 86 or 87  and the recipients were soon on  trains for the Spy at Worcester,the  Journal  at  Providence,    or  the  Herald in Boston, a good, cleanly,  sober  lot of  fellows,  who   took  pleasure in  traveling   and paying  their way by honest toil, much as  Bayard   Taylor,  Artemus  Ward,  Mark Twain, G.  B.   Lewis, and  Bret   Harte   did.    One  night a  thoughtful    looking     compositor  raised on his toes in an alley iu  the Kepublican office after he had  put his first take of copy on his cap  case, and asked the compositor in  the next alley, "What are the shop  rules   of   capitalization?     Came  back laconically from the bureau  of infojmation iu the next alley,  "Capitalize    nothing    but  Jesus  Christ and Sam Bowles 1  The compositor knew well the  rock the' Springfield Kepublican  was foundedjon, and a phrase told  the inherent belief of its founder in  all that was good in tie  world's greatest reformer,  and in the work of typ-������  graphical reform commanded by a  very    good     disciple.���������Turner's  brain-earnings that mob, and the  admirable community', of waga-  earners, would be in peril of starvation. Hearst is but a parasite  of inherited ca'pitid', a non-producei  u hirer of brains, a human octupus  who reaches out to grasp this and  that ��������� office for the sole purpose of  indulging his vicious instinct for  power, to be used vindictively. -  Hearst has left us in no il������ubt of  his ambition. The murder of  President McKiuley was one of the  first fruits of the gospel of Hearst's  publications. Ills success would  plunge society into wild confusion.  Even now its possibility has called  a halt on national finance and commerce. If tiie shadow casts such a  blight, what can be expected of the  substance. 'The New 'York contest must vindicate the'sober, solid  thought of patriotic Americans,  who cannot much longer tolerate  the evil influence of tainted wealth  and amhirioii upon ignitr-incc.  Philosophy of a Dyspeptic  When a man takes  whisky for a  cold   lie doesn't care whether he  gets over it or not.  To let your light shine before  men it isn't necessary, to make a  fireworks display.  The man who makes his money  in trade ��������� is sneered at by the man  who makes his by marrying it.  Perhaps the reason a prophet is  not honored in his own.country ia  hecatis'1 tva get tired hearing him  say: : ''I to.d yon Mi.'!,*.. -  Good rct-olutUnih too often die of  malnutrition.. - .���������  The truth is mighty, and on  tombstones it? mighty scarce.  iio^i troubles are. not worth the  time it cakes to tell them.

The devil pats himself on the  back every time he discovers a new  hypocrite.  The man who puts on thecal-  muffs of pleasure and profligacy  can't be expected to hear the still,  small voice of conscience.  Wise is the man who, having  taken a drop too much, also taketh  a tumble to himself.  It is human nature to fight for  our rights, and when we get them  to fight for. more.  There wouldn't be so much room  at the top if the stairs were easier  to climb.  Never call a man a fuol unless  you know he is fool enough to  stand for it.  A woman is tired of her husband  when she no longer cares to quarrel with him.  Only the rich can afford to lo  stingy.  At any rate, the loser is never  accused of cheating.  The fellow who is imbued with  the idea that the world owes him a  living can get it in the penitCL-  tiary.  Only a fool will rock the boat on  the sea of matrimony. ;j   -  When a fellow tells' a girl he  isn't worthy of her she docsu't be*  licve it���������at the time."

Same Old Story  When a man becomes powerful  or prominent in his own country  he also becomes a kind of billboard  upon which his enemies stick all  kinds of dreams. To illustrate the  idea wo print the following dose of  vitriol that we found in an obscure  Chicago paper.  Of all conceivable possibilities  Hearst is tho worst. He stands  for unprincipled anarchy as against  the principle of orderly, law upholding party organization.
