The effort to rush in returning bankrupt
Klondikers and Italians via Seattle has

\V. L. Hagler, secretary of the Sandon
union, received a telegram from Seattle,
Monday, from the union agent, stating
that "F. A. Woods left here this morning. No men, unless met on way."
Every inducement was offered to get men,
but without success. Of those who came
in two weeks ago for the Payne, only two
remain, and they are there as evidence
to the Dominion Government of the action of the mine managers.
Another unsuccessful attempt has just
been made by the managers to import
men from eastern Canada, but the vigilance of the union has proven too great.
On Monday Mr. Hagler received advices from Winnipeg that 10 men had
been dissuaded at that point from going
farther on their journey. The men said
they had been hired to work in the Slocan mines. As on previous occasions, it
has been shown that the men were given
a totally false impression of the conditions prevailing in the camp, but they
and others have always refused to work
in the Slocan when the true situation
was explained to them,

played  daily in
in attendance and enlivened the meeting by rendering several selections
The address of Organizer Wilkes was
a simple statement of facts, showing the
causes that made nec?.ssary the organization of   co-operative   unions among
the miners, and the good results that
had been achieved for the metalliferous
miners of the mining sections  of the
Northwest   by   the   Federation.     Mr.
Wilkes is a plain, impassionate speaker
and talks as a working-man to working-
men. He brought out many good points
in relation to the eight-hour law that
Llioroughly pleased his audience, and
stated that he had received letters from
politicians  on the   coast,   of both the
government party and the opposition,
pledging* their support to the  law, and
stating* that it would never be repealed.
Mr. Wilkes was particularly careful
to warn the men who would be members   of  the  union   to   be  organized
against any action that   might be construed as an infraction of the law.   Let
the other side do that, said he.
He regretted that the country, and
particularly this section, should be
forced to suffer because of the lockout,
and sincerely hoped the question would
soon be settled. He was confident that
tiie managers could have averted the
trouble had they in the first place treated their employes like men. He had
lived for fifteen years in a mining community where the employers always
treated with the men direct in questions of differences between them, and
in all that time there had been perfect
harmony. And it was his belief, that
had the mine managers gone to the
miners with their case a7 the inception
of the eight-hour law, instead of getting
together in secret and issuing their ultimatum, they would never have forced
upon the Slocan the past four months of
depression. The difficulties that the
mine managers claim the law thrusts
upon them are large imaginary, said
he. The}* must be imaginary, for they
have never tried the law and could not
speak with authority. If the managers'
union and the miners' union understood each other better, if each would
try to understand the other, and treat
the other in a spirit of conciliation, he
was confident that all friction between
them would disappear and harmony
would prevail. To bring this condition
of affairs about Mr. Wilkes said the
union would do its utmost, and he predicted that, if the managers would do
as much, the difficulty now existing
would soon be overcome.
Taking up the question of the importation of Italians,  Mr. Wilkes said he
was not at all worried about that move.
He knew that such action  by the mine
owners engaged in  the business would
be   unanimously   condemned   hy   the
citizens of British Columbia, and would
strengthen the arm oflabor. Moreover,
he  could  assure his   hearers   that  no
more Italian laborers would be imported
as steps had already been taken to prevent it.    He said the  union  would use
every legitimate means  to  secure the
enactment   of   legislation   that   would
help them to better their  condition, to
make themselves  and  the  community
more prosperous, and to keep out ofthe
mines of Kootenay the ignorant class of
workmen who are not and   will not become citizens of Canada.      The union,
he said, was striving to tiring its members to the  highest   standard  of  proficiency as workmen and citizens, and it
would do it.    They   all.  or  nearly  all,
were voters  and  they  would  see that
the political pledges  made  to them before   election   would   lie   carried   out
when the office was secured.
The speaker said he was at a loss to
see wherein the eight-hour law was at
fault for the present conditions. He
very well knew what the mine managers and their political allies said was
high wages, they believe in unionism !
Then what iii the name of reason is the
matter?
In conclusion Mr. Wilkes predicted
the early settlement of the present
trouble. He was very glad to come to
New Denver and organize a union, and
hoped its members would so conduct
themselves that their union would be a
recognized power for good in the peace-
able settlement of all questions affecting
labor and capital. He thanked the
band, the business men and citizens
generally for according him a hearing,
and especially the press for the fair
treatment the question has received.
In conclusion of his remarks those'
not eligible to membership dispersed
and the organization of the New Den- ■
ver Miner's Union was effected, with 52
names on the membership roll. The
following officers were elected: President, D. J. Weir: vice-president, Julius
Wolfe: secretary, C. M. Nesbitt; treasurer, Peter Lindquist; warden, Geo.
M. Davis; conductor, T. Lloyd.
PRODUCTION    OF    COPPKK.
Half a century ago the north shore of
Lake Superior was an important mining section, and produced great quantities of copper.    Appearances indicate
that the region  frill  again   rank as a
large producer of copper.     The Parry
Sound district is also coming to the
front, and while copper mining there is
as yet in its initial   stages the  indications are most favorable.   The demand
for the metal is almost unlimited.   During the first six months of 1S99 the output   of.copper   in   the   United States
reached the total of 124.4S7 tons, or an
average of 20,7-18 tons per month.   The
mines in Europe within the same period
have produced a total of  43,629 tons.
In Europe, notwithstanding the bulk
produced since January  1, the  entire
stock of copper does not exceed l«,0OO
tons.   Within five years the price of
copper has advanced from 10 cents to
18_ and 19 cents per pound.     In 1894
copper   was   produced from the  best
mines and  delivered  in New York at
about 8 cents a pound    Today the cost
of production and delivery is near to 6
cents per pound.     The  constantly increasing use of copper in electric devices and appliances of every sort has
swelled  the  demand   for    the   metal
wherever   electricity  is   being   introduced.   Since. 1894 the demand  has increased 50 per cent.    Previous to that
date there was an   annual increase in
production of about   10 per cent., but
thence forward it has averaged a fraction less than 4  per cent.     Meanwhile
the demand from abroad has been constantly augmented, and since January
1, 63,420 tons of copper have been exported from America.
Want to  Follow the   Dip.
Application was made before Judge
Forin of Nelson last week by the defendants in the case of Braden vs. the.
American Boy Mining Company, for security for costs. The order was made.
This is a case in which Braden, as
owner of the Treasure Vault mineral
claim, is seeking to set aside the crown
grant to the American Boy mineral
claim and restrain that company from
working the American Boy vein, the
apex of which it is claimed is on the
Treasure Vault ground. The Treasure
Vault is an 1891 location, and under the
Mineral Act of that year its owners
have the right to follow the dip of any
veins that may have their apex within
the side lines of their ground.

foot on our ground to interfere with
them." Such rash . statements are
quite as bad as anything that a few
radical union men may have done.
On the whole, the mine managers
cannot complain ofthe treatment they
have received at the hands of the
Union. .They were not prepared to
fight so formidable an organization as
the Federation, and all.their plans
that looked so feasible .to their inexperienced eyes at, the Association
meetings faded- dismally when confronted bv the: old experienced labor
leaders of. the: Federation. Many a
good general has had to capitulate to
save his, army, and, the mine,managers should not allow their dignity
to stand in the way of reason. It is
no disgrace to be upset by a superior
foeman, and they may as well crawl
down now as two months later.
THK    CORRECT    PIUNG'IPT.K.
The Miners' Union of New Denver
starts off well.     Its membership roll
has 52 names upon it,  and its officers
are men of sterling character,  conservative ih all  their dealings with
public questions and dignified in conducting any business they take hold
of.    Another feature  in  favor of thc
new organization   is   that all  of its
members are men  who are actually
engaged in mining for a livelihood.
Men who are not so engaged are not
eligible to membership and are refused admission, however strong their
inclinations may be in that direction.
This is the correct principle, and
is the only basis upon which to build
a successful labor organization--one
that will be of assistance to its members and of permanent good to the
community in  which it is organized.
Men who are not engaged in mining
for a livelihood have no more right
to be in a miners union   that has a
carpenter in a printers' union,  or a
tailor in a blacksmiths' union, and it
is contrary to all principles of unionism for them to be admitted.     It is
more for personal gain that they are
there,   and  the. union   that, permits
them to. enter does so at tremendous
risk.
This has been   proven   time and
„ again in years past,  and the history
of any  union  that   has permitted it
has had written across its charter the
word failure:    Repeated weeding out
must be done even in  the  best labor
organizations, and what must the result be when  every  Tom, Dick and
Harry is admitted to membership?
As an illustration of what can be
done by a conservative organization
the International Typographical Union may be named as the most successful.    This organization  has ever
observed the strictest investigation of
the merits of an applicant for admission and it is next to impossible for a
man who not a practical  printer to
become a member.     As a result of
this close scrutiny that organization
heads the list as the most conservative
of* all trades unions,   and yet it is the
strongest and most successful,    They
accomplish their ends by lawful, intelligent   action,   and  employers all
over the United  States and Canada
are glad to put their composing rooms
under   the   union,   because,   as  the
Spokesman-Review puts it, they feel
that in  return  for fair wages they
will receive fair treatment and efficient service,   their newspapers will
be printed on  time 365 days in the
year, and  their  materials and machinery will be well cared for.   As a
result, employe and employer enjoy
mutual respect and confidence, and
each is glad to  advance the other's
prosperity.
ckkAp   i.Anon,   cheap   pkoi'lk.
The mine owners of West Kootenay over-readied  themselves  when
they imported a lot of Italians from
the  United States   co   work   in  the
mines. British Columbia has no need
of Italians to work in her mines. The
merchant,   the    manufacturer,    the
artisan, tbe laborer, the capitalist, all
have reason to oppose such a move.
The future of British  ColumbiM, depends upon her masses.     If all labor
is to come down to the basis of Chinese
and Italian wages, the days of prosperity in British Columbia will, soon
be over.     Good   wages   mean good
times and more rapid development of
every resource ofthe country.     The
money earned   by   the   Italian and
Chinaman is sent away.     It is never
invested in hemes and home improvements.   Not a dollar of it is spent in
public spirited enterprise.    They are
a elass that absorb but never give up.
The bare necessities of life keep them,
and very little of their money circulates in .the, legitimate . channels of
trade.    One white  man  working at
good wages is better for a community
than  20 ■ Chinks or   Dagoes.—Gran-
brook Herald.
so, and Canada will answer. Meanwhile the British in South Africa
seem to be suffering from a lack of
accomplished mule-whackers. It
might be well for the Laurier gov
ernment to ask whether !\the War
Office would not appreciate the help
of a corps of trained diplomats who
have learned how to. reason with
mules on the pack trails of British

THE    NEWSPAPEK    HABIT.
There is no hope for the newspaper
jacklegs ofthe Slocan. You can't
cure a man of the newspaper habit.
This is the story Jake Adraire's son
used to tell on him: Jake swore off
on the newspaper habit and went into business. The son took the print
shop and the old man was so relieved
that he would not even enter the

well for Canada to remember, in this
hour of grief and calamity  that the
foundations of the British Empire are
not to be shaken by the results which
followed the bad  behavior of a few
army mules.    Canada is prepared to
do her duty to the  Empire up to the

T-OA'K    AND    MARRIAGE.
The Philosopher tells us that early
weddings are the parents of  early
divorce, and this is undoubtedly true
where divorce is the easy and accepted remedy for all   matrimonial
eruptions.    America  is afflicted with
sentimental influenza.     Sentiment is
a good thing; so is vanilla,   but they
are both   nothing   but flavors.    All
cake and no bread will not do.    Rose
water  is  sweeter   than   Limburger
cheese, but the cheese is more useful.

rl he mine managers,   it is claimed,
are averse to giving in to the Miners-
Union in tiie wage  trouble because a

heaped indignities upon them.     Tlie
managers certainly  have a position
to hold that, entitles them to respect,
but no more so than the  Miners' Union.      It is not with  the few individuals that the  managers are dealing,
but with the  Western   Federation of
Miners, an organization   that is more
powerful     than  many     associations
like that ofthe  managers ofthe Slocan.    The actions of  a   few of the
miners are no more commendable than
the actions of a few of the mine man

WHEN    I    HAVE    TIME.
When I have time I'll  pause and turn
aside;
I'll take the narrow way;   forsake the
wide;
I'll shun the thoroughfares where traffic
grinds
Forever and anon.
Where lucre's sheen the sonl of mankind blinds,
But drives and shoves him on;
And guides his fingers to his neighbor's
purse,
And sinks him to perdition's depths or
worse;
I'll quit these scenes, some day—
When I have time.
When I have time, at home I'll; spend it
more;
I'll kiss the face that greets me at tha
door;
And bv my tired wife I'll take my place,
Her burdens will I share.
I'll smooth her way;   I'll banish from
her face.
The shad'wy elouds of care.
I'll hie tne to the byways; the oppressed
I'H aid; I'll comfort the distressed.
These things I'll do, and more—
When I have time.
When 1 have time I'll make my peace
with God;
I'll tread the  paths that   other  saints
have trod;
I'll take my dusty  Bible  from its shelf,
And'read it through and through.
I'll learn to love my neighbor as myself
(A precept learned by few),
Ahd then, some day, I'll  lay me down
to rest,
Well satisfied that I have done my best
--Some day: not now; not yet;
When I have time.

Which
Kind'of
Advertlsimg
Do YotfDo?
'There is good advertising-, there is
advertising which is poor because it
does not bring results, and there is'bad
advertising which is not only poor advertising but is actually injurious to
the business  which   it is  supposed to
f archer.      7,      ' 7.o
Under any of these heads there are
numerous subdivisions. It is very hard
to tell in which class any advertisement
belongs until it shall have been tested
for a cor>siderable time. ,
But there are .two styles of advertising practiced by retail stores, which
stand out in strong contrast from everything else and it,is essential, that every
man consider carefully which class he
wishes to use. Plere are some of the
principal differences between bargain
and special sale advertising, and the
quiet, modest advertisement which-is
used day after day.
We use the term bargain advertising
not as applying to the legitimate special
prices which a store is honestly enabled
to occasionally offer, but to tha*- class of
advertisements which by using startling announcements and promising
some remarkable saving, have as their
ultimate object the bringing of people
into the store.
Generally some misfortune has happened to some one. The manufacturer,
or the shipper, or the buyer has made
some mistake for which he must suffer.
This kind of advertising appeals
principally to people who think themselves too sharp to be cheated. Their
best julgment tells them that such an
advertisement is largely a misrepresentation. Alter the excitement has
died away and they realize that they
have been bamboozled into paying full
value, they very naturally decide never
to patronize the store again, and are
apt to advise their friends of the deception.
While business is on the rush at such
a store there is big profit in it, but there
is also a great deal of dissatisfaction
among the customers.
There are legitimate reasons arising
i;i the ordinary course of business
which.occasionally induce a merchant
to give unusual values. If his reputation has been spoiled by faky advertising his honest announcement of real
bargains will have little weight.
The second style of   advertising is
much slower iu  producing  results and
wheh the merchant has among his competitors an advertiser  of  tho.  first sort
he isapt to feel that  his  advertising is
not paying.     His   course   is   perfectly
plain.    Continue straightforward talk.*;,
taking up each little  point   which local
conditions of trade  make  possible and
offering in each   advertisement articles
of superior merit and   so  reasonable in
price that thev are instantly recognized
ar- being honest bargains      That is all.
Presenting bargains of this kind you
will find tliat people are not dissatislied,
that  they   will   tell  their   friends that
your advertising is truthful.    Their repeated coining  and continued   buying
will insure your success
The advertising with a big hurrah
brings many people—once. The truthful, straightforward advertising brings
Ass people on the given day but they
come time after time and bring their i
friends with them.
It is no us>-'. for the man who has established a reputation as a fakir to attempt the more quiet edvertising. Like
the man addicted to cocaine, his only
salvation is to continue on the same
lines, iucro-ising the dose from time to
time until he has exhausted his territory. This result is inevitable—W. D
Curtis:
Must tread the self-same paths we two
have trod.
And cry in vain to one who is with God,
To lean down from the Silent Realms
and say,
'T love you," in the old familiar way.
Some day—and   each   day,  beauteous
though it be,
Brings closer that dread  hour for you
or me, .
Fleet-footed   Joy,   who    hurries   time
along.
Is yet a secret foe who does us wrong,
Speeding us gaily, though he well doth
know
Of yonder path wav, where but one may
' >°-
Oh, heart of mine, through all these
perfect days,
Whether of white Decembers or green
Mays,
There runs a dark thought like a creeping snake,
Or like a black thread, on which'by
some mistake
Life has strung the pearls of happy
years;
A thought which borders all my joy
with tears.
Ay, one will go.    Togo is sweet, I wis—
Yet Giod must needs invade  some special bliss
To make His Paradise seem'very dear
To one who goes  and leaves the other
here,
To sever souls so  bound by   love aud
time,
For any one but God would be a crime.
Yet  Death  will   entertain  his own, I
think;
To one who stays, life gives the gall to
drink.
To one who stays, or.be it you or me,
There waits the" Garden of Gethseinane.
0 dark,.inevitable and awful day,
When one of us must go and one must
stay!

TOO    MUCH    PRKACHING.
The following suggestive sentiment
is expressed by an exchange: '•Preaching is a good thing if it is not overdone. The pulpit has not lost its power
nor will it as long as the wond stands
but it is crippled sometimes by undertaking too much This town is a fair
sample. . Here there is preaching upon
preaching; The result is that the town
is put to sleep spiritually, the sermons
get thin and. the. preachers get their
brain-pans exhausted. Fewer sermons
with more in .them would be lighter
work for the.preacher and more helpful
for the congregations.
"The average -preacher  is expected
to prepare two strong, sane and serious
sermons for Sunday ahda.sernionet for

Then he must do a, round of social visiting that is interminable ■     He must
