At a meeting of the executive of the
Vancouver branch of the Provincial
Mining association, the following resolution in reference to the lead industry,
was submitted and adopted:
Whereas, the lead mining industry is
now in a demoralized state, as it can*,
not profitably be carried on under present conditions; aud whereas, tlie Dominion government have been requested to render assistance by providing
adequate duties on lead and its pro
ducts, but havo up to the protein time
failed to do so; and whereas, It Is believed that any assistance given should
be in the nature of a bonus to be paid
directly to the producers of leads therefore, lie it resolved, thnt the Dominion
Kvernment bo requested tn grant a
nils to the producers of lead f iilllclent
to revive the lead mining Industry, and
the various industrial and commercial
Interest1! dopondent upon it Bn it further resolved, that It should be care
fully nrovl lea that tlio bonus should bo
paid direct to tho producer, nnd that
the smelter and transportation companies should ho precluded from depriving the producer or the benefit Intended to be couforred by such bonus

The   commission   appointed   some
weeks ago bv the Dominion govern
ment to look into tlie labor troubles at
Ladysmith is trying'to patch things up.
Chief Justice' Hunter advised the
men to go to work, and to breakaway
from the'Western Federation of Miners,
but tho men .'refused In their reply to
the FUggeftion the miners stated that
past experience had taught them that
to comply with tlie suggestion meant
being placed at the mercy of their employers, whilo to abandon the Western
Federation of Miners would mean to
lose their sympathy and active support,
that without said support the men now,
as in the past, might be dibcharged or
compiled .to quit work and thnt no one
Touid dare to move in the direction
of organization for fear of discharge.
Therefore they declined to accept tne
chief justice's suggestion
This morning the statements oi both
parties .wero submitted. For Dunsmuir,
Bodwell reported that there was, no
question of wages or labor conditions in
dispute, that the cmplovecs were insisting on a right to affiliate with n
foreign labor organization and that he
should recognize and treat from time
to timo with that union, tho company
declined to recognize that body for different reasons, among them that the
organization was foreign, with'head*
quarters outside of Canada, and its
business was,so conducted lhat those
under its contiol may bo ordered on
strike although no grievance arise in
course of local employment, Vut through
troubles in another country, the effect
of which Would be to place the com
pany's property in jeopardy Tlie
organization might be used to close the
mines of the country to increase the
business or raise the price of coal produced bv the operators in the United
States. "
The, miners' statement is thnt the
trouble is due tn the company's refusal
to employ -men affiliated witli the West-
stii Federation, or with any union, and
tlie company's general hostility to
labor organizations; also the insistence
of the company that men live in Lady
smith as a condition of employment
" Organizer Baker of the Western Federation was called. He denied that
strikes could he ordered by the executive iii tiie United States without being
first ordered by the local union or that
one union had power over another.
Che Smeller's Bid Cinch
It is not, nnd never has been, the desire of The Ledge to say anything that
upon the Canadian smelters, as was
suggested by J. L. Parker in Nelson
last week.
What Thb Ledge did say was this:
'.'There is bitter resentment iirthe
Slowir it Irnlmedafthe smelters bf
the district—the Hall Mines smelter at
Nelson and the C. P. Iffsmelter atTral
And It Jill comes from the disposition of
the government at Ottawa to bonus the
lead Industry
"When thebonus was given n year
or more ago on lead refined in Canada,
the smelters agreed to give to the lead
producers a share of such bonus. Rut
they havo not done so. On the con-
trary, the smelters have gobbled up the
bonus and pinned the lead producers
down tighter than thoy wero before the
bonu* was given.
"When the government nt Ottawa
Intimated that a change would bo made
in the terms on which tho bonus would
be granted, sn that tho lead producers
would beiieiU bv It, Manager Aldridge
of the Trail smelter and his tools at Or.
tawn immediately spread thoir net to
catch tho bonus.
"As a result of their sharp work, a
telegram from Ottawa states that tlie
.j/overnment propose to grant a bonus
to Iho lead induMrv conditionally that
only lead ore smelted In Canada is to
participate and that ofthe total amount
paid In any one year two-flfths is to go
to the Cansdlnn smelters As the Hall
Billies smelter, end the Canadian smelter et Trail are the only two lead plants
In the Dominion, the plan proposed If
carried out would menu that two-flfths
of and bonus earned by the mines on
nro sent to these plants would bo handed over to them. I^esd ore shipped out
of thn country would receive no aid,
nnd the home smelters would havo the
market practically In their own hand*
and could regulate prices accordingly.
"Ibis action of the smelter hogs ha*
rnti«<i'd the people to a stain nf bitter
n'Pi'iiliiii'iit. The lead mine owners are
sick ol being bled by these companies,
and the people are hacking them up in
their demand* fnr justice at Iheliand**
of the government/*
Tub Lriwh reiterates what it said
•hove If It does not suit J. L Parker
that Is not nur fault. But It should Instated thnt this is not an "attack" on
thn smelters. It Is the plain, uuvar
nl**hed truth. It It ■ demand for fair
nlav to the mine owners of theShwan.
It is nonsense to talk of the "falrncs^o'
Iini smelters. There ts not a mlnlnu
man in the Hlocon who has shipp*ed onto them for treatment, who hat not Mi
the sqneexe thev subject him to The
rate todav is from 15 to |7 per ton
hlyher than it was three year* ngn.
Mr. Btarkey expressed the feeling ef
all Hhxan ore producers when he iwld
at Ihe aaine meeting thtt Mr. Parker

"FredStarkey—Do you say tho American lead trust were interested enough
"Mr Parker—Yes, I do. 1 think
their actions as I have described them
showed what they were after."
* Without going deenlv into the question, docs it not sound like child talk to
bear -n mino; manager "say ^rtrnt the
smelter people on the other side of the.
line are trying to prevent a tariff increase by making a bluff at buying a
thousand tons of ore from the North
Star mine?
There is no comparison between tho
treatment of Slocau si ver 'end miners
hv our own smelters and tlio treatment
of the Casur d'Aiene minors bv the
American smelters. Tho American
smelters give tho Coour d'Alenes a
freight and treatment rate of from $15
to $18 per ton In doiuir this they
guarantee tn take the lead of the producers nt 83 90 per hundred, the Canadian smelters add to thu treatment
charge n deduction nf $1 per hundred
for nmrkotinir tho lead, S2.00 iter ton
for "loss" in the treatment of the lead,
and $1.1(5 for loss iu the treatment of
the silver Theso deduu:ions bring the
total charge for freight and treatment
of Slocan ores by our hoinn smelters up
to $28.25. And what do onr home
smelters guarantee the lead miners?
Absolutely nothing Thoy pav thorn
cash (Monday's quotations) $1 57| pur
hundred, after all deductions are made,
whereas the American smelters pay thn
American minor $3 9J a hundred, after
making all deductions.
Die local smelter men claim that
they cannot treat the nm nt a less cost.
Perhaps they statu thn truth, since their
uii'lhoil of treatment is so obsolete. It
is known bv nil mining men that thu
smelter at Nulson Is a wav nut of date,
and cannot touch the modernized smelter In the treatment of nro. The smelting rate is held high in order to allow

ThoTiall smelter holds the whip. Thn
C. P II and thn Trail Smelter com-
pauy work hand in hand, ami ihe Nelson concern is Allowed to run wiumly to
hold tho field against possible opiKiii-
tlon. '
If the Canadian smelters wanted to
do the fair thing, thoy could help the
silvcr-html miners out nf the hole,
They could give a r*t« somewhat
along the liuu of that given the miners

We get a thorn with every rose,
but aren't the roses sweet ?
Heroines still live. Miss Nellie
Sturtevant, of Medford, Mass.,
stepped in front of her father and
received the bullet of an assassin;
who shot to kill and rob. She fell
dead at her father's feet.

What kind of a stopper would
J. L. Parker put on The Ledge ?
Narrow-sou led men are like narrow-necked bottles—the less they
have in them the more noiso it
makes coming out. J. L. Parker
is a noisy individual.   .
Whenever you hear a man with
his hand out talking about "Canada for Canadians," look out for
him. The individual or corporation thpt would cinch a community
or industry as the Canadian smelters are cinching the mining industry of the Slocan, has no other
conception of patriotism than as it
applies to his pocket.
{hat are put to them by strangers.
Recently, a visitor from Cleveland,
Ohio, came to Seattle as tho representative of capitalists, for the puiv
pose of examining the Ethel at Index, and incidentally other mining properties in Western Washington. Unfortunately, he met an
attorney of the city who gave him
a decidedly pessimistic talk about
the mining resources of the Cascades. The positiveness with which
he spoke led the visitor to suspect
that the man was informed. The
stranger was probably already affected with a feeling of homesickness at being so far away from his
family, and when he heard the Seattle man's wail, decided to return
home, not even visiting the property ho came West to look at."
best people in the country killing
each other's votes for the bve of
party is degrading the public life
and brutalizing the politics of Ontario. Each party is sure to keep
its own share of the good people no
matter what it does. Each party
knows that it cannot keep the bad
people unless it gives them what
they, want. Consequently one
rascal who may go over to the
other side has more influence with
the government than r. hundred

What a mistake it is to send

Isn't it about time for the people
of Canada to begin to rule put the

A kind word to a sad heart is
more valuable than a ton of sympathy bawled into the ear.
Not satisfied with getting all the
industry will stand out of the silver-lead mine owners of the Slocan,
the 6melters are now trying to force
the government to give them a
string on the proposed bonus. If
there is one thing these howlers of
patriotism delight in, it is to get
the neckhold on the country and
squeeze the juice out of its industries into their dripping pans.

Either the silver-lead mine
owners of the Slocan are all liars,
or J. L. Parker, a smelter "stand-
in," is a liar. J. L. Parker is a
East Kootenayo low-grade ore producer. He gets a rate from the
smelters that is^ coin patible % wi th

Partisans who are suro to vote

The changeable element is the
only influential element in politics,
and the man who -proudly declare?

either Grit Or Tory is simply proclaiming his own lack of influence.
Men who aro after timber limits
and subsidies and concessions do
not carry anything in their "blood"
which interferes with their pursuit
of the main chance.
And why should the men, Liberal and Tory, whose only desire
is for good government, allow anything to remain in their "blood"
wliich interferes with the '"exaltation of their ideals ?.<
Ontario is the most party-besotted com mon wealth on earth.
The party system has its strength
among the straight-living but
crooked-thinking people. It "is
in the blood" of these people to bi'
always Grit or always Tory, and
they are the dupes of the baser
element of both sides.
The Tories would be just as bad
if their friends were in power.
Their friends are uot in power, and
tho necessities of the Ontario government are just now imparting a
moral squint to the eyes of its supporters.
Poor old Ontario sends missionaries to teach spiritual'truth to thc
heathen^— and-even—tlie—heatlseh
must havo sufficient virtue to supply missionaries who could teach
political truth to Ontario.
Partyism in Ontario has become
a degrading superstition which
tends more aud more to throw public affairs into tho hands of the
worst element, not because it is
tho worst, but because it is the only
changeable element in a population
which assays .ninety-five per cent,
of political fanaticism.
The good man who has it "in
hia blood" to bo always Grit or always Tory, should get it in his
brain to change from side to side
for the public good as fast ns the
rascals change from Bide to sido fur

The clever yonng mah was wandering up and down the platform
of the railway station, intent on
finding an empty carriage in the
express which was almost due to
start. But, alas, his search was
in vain.
Still, it is difficult to disappoint
a clever young man when he has
set his mind on getting something/
An idea occurred to him, and, assuming an official air, he stalked
up to the last carriage and cried in
a stentorian voice:
"All change here; this carriage
isn't going."
There were exclamations low but
deep from the occupants of the
crowded compartment; but, nevertheless, they scurried out of the
carriage and packed themselves
away in other parts of the train.
The smilo on the face of the
young man was childlike and
bland as he settled himself spaciously in a corner of the empty carriage and lit a cigar.
"Ah," he murmured," "it's a
grand thing for me that I was born
clever 1 I wish they'd hurry np
Presently the station master put
his head in the window and said:
' 'I 'sposejou'ro the smart young
fellow who.told the people this carriage wasn't going?"
"Yes," said the clever one, and
he smiled. . .
"Well," said the station master,
with a grin, "it isn't.   The porter
heard you telling the people, and,|
so he uncoupled it.   He thought
you were a director."

The Watchman-Wardi-r tells this
queer story of an old distMlerv which
once existed near Lindsay:
Everybody near Lindsay has heard
of the Distillery creek, that unobtrusive
stream that is tributary to the Scugog
from the west not more than eight furlongs north of the town. Holidaying
and truant lads seek its banks in'"the
good old summer time," and passengers on board the steamers scarcely fail
to note the grassy bluff and fe'edgy
shallows that mark the union of the
river and its little ally. Grain fields on
one sidp, cedar scrub rn the other, au
iron railway bridge in the background—
this structure, by the way, is a settion
of the old Victoria bridge at Montreal—
a rivulet that fal's wearily into the
reedy little pond that opens to the
river—that is Distillery creek, as it is
known to denizens of the river
Most people know or surmise it is
called Distillery creek because at one
time a distillery stood on the bank
1 hut is tiue; but not everybody knows
the history of that structure and tlie
enterprise connected with it tis well as
Mr. "Miny" O'Leary, who not' long ago
told it to the Watchman-Warder, ..as
"Fifty-two years ago good whiskey
was sold in Lindsay for a York shilling
a quart. It was first-class liquor—quite
as good as the bottled goods of today
There has an idea got abroad of late
that to be food whiskey must have age
That is it'll nonsense; we never hoard
of that tilt the big distillery made it up
to crowd out the small ones who could
not affoid to hold big stocks for years
Tho theory was booh held pretty gener
ally, and ihe small oius wero put out of
business by it. Whiskey does not need
age; beer does, for twice in the six
weeks after beer is made it gets 'sick,'
and is not fit to use while it is in that
state. New whiskey, however, is juet
at good, if it has been made right, as it
is later. The good-whiskey that we
pot here for 60 cents a gallon oOj'ears
ago was fresh.
Some of it was made near here—down
at the Distillery creek. There was a
—ti I st 11 iei*y~t li-ore-siid-ironi it~t h n*t;r@eir
got its name. A man named Murphy
built tho distillery. He came out from
Ireland. Ho was a young men with
plenty of money. He bought 800 acres
north of thia town from the government.
The littie creek ran through some of it,
and on it ho built his distillery. He
threw a dam 11 leet high across the
creek and got the power required to run
his machinery. >oumay not know it
but there Is a very good water power;
18 feet head can easily bo got there; he
had 11.,
"Well, he made a couple of batches
ol whiskey—about fifty barrels each
time—and then he disappeared 1 don't
know what happened to him—whether
he went crazy or was crossed in love,
or what—but he went away and loft
everything, laud, distillery and a good
deal of whiskey. Ho never enme back,
but I think he wag heard of from California some time after. Some people
claiming to be friends of his came and
took charge of the whiskey after a long
time; but the distillery rotted down and
disappeared entirely, and the land was
sold fnr taxes, If ho had all that land
how ho would le worth a million
"I knew Murphy very well; he had
furnished rooms nt thn distillery aud
usually stayed there, but sometimes he
would como to town—or village as It
was then—and stop a few days. He
was n flue liberal chap, and used to buy
plenty of grog for everybody whon he
was around the hotels. I think he
must have been crowed lu love. At
anyrate ho left eveiythliig all ol a sudden, and we never mw him again; but
m did give the creek its name."

Accompanied by Gllson Willed, ■
New York correspondent, Dr Klotuivh
made the long trip aero** the snow barrens of Finland on sled*, sleeping at
posthouses, visiting the famine-stricken

'JI cannot overdraw the picture of

"The famine is in practically, every

"Russian oppression is even harder
to bear than hunger, and whereverl
went hnlf famished Fins cried to me in
their suffering. ^Better to starve than
to live as Russian serfs.'.
"Since last October no man, woman
or child in the famine district has tasted

This particular committed, which necessarily is one of great importance, haa

said that the commission as a whole N.

Men of the type of Senor Enrique Creel,

The expansion of industry iu Mexico
today is baaed upon gold mining, which
is benefiting from the fact tliat labor is
low priced, because payable in depreciated silvor. This will have a ten

traversed before any material change
can be made.
