That  nivalis a tremendous showing of  NoveHies in Mantles  Novelties in Millinery  Novelties in Dress Goods  Novelties in Dress Furnishings  Stay With the Decision to Introduce  Dominion Politics Into the Next General Election  and  Frame a Platform.  The Conservative convention, which  closed its session at. New Westminster  on Friday, endorsed the decision of the  Former convention of 1S0S that it is  desirable that the Liberal-Conservative  party should, as a party, take part in  provincial elections for the purpose of  ensuring the government and legislation of this province on Liberal-Conservative principles, and in order to  carry this into effect -'at the next  general (-lection for the province" that  candidates be invited to stand for such  constituencies as are likely to return  Liberal-Co.iservativemembers. pledged  primarily to ' support a Liberal-Conservative government as distinguished  from a government composed ol'  Liberals or partly of Liberal-Conservatives nnd partly of Liberals, and th.it  a platform or statement of principles,  applicable to local politics, bo drawn  up, and recommended the following  as a suitable plntrorm :  THE   CONSERVATIVE  l'l-ATFOIlM.  It  is   proposed:    (1)   To   revise' the  voteis'   lists.   (2)   To  actively aid  in  the construction of  trails  throughout  the undeveloped portions of the  piovince,   and the   building of provincial  trunk roads   of   public  necessity.    (3)  To provide for the,.official   inspection  of elevators and hoisting gear.   (4) To  improve the administration of justice  and  secure the speedy  disposition  of  legal   disputes.,    (3)   To   provide   an  effective system for the settlement', of.  disputes  between "capital   and  labor.  (G) To adopt, the  principle, 'of government oxx ner.-hip of railways in  so far  as  the  circumstance  of  the  province  will admit.-and  the  adoption-' of the  principle   that'  no.   bonus   should  be  granted'   to     any   railway   company  which does not  give  the  government  of the  province  the  control   of rates  over lines bonusod  together  with  the  option   of   purchase.     (7) To   assume  control   and    administration   of    the  fisheries within the boundaries of  the  piovince.      (8) To  actively  assist    by  State aid in tlie  development of the  agricultural resources of the province.  (9) To   make   the . London   agency of  British Columbia effective in proclaiming the natural wealth of the |p.-uvint-e  and as a, place for   profitable investment of capital.   (10) In the interests  of labor the Liberal-Conservative party  sympathizes   with   ami   endorses  the  principle   of the eight/hour law.    )11)  To   provide   an   improved   system of  education.

(14) To aid in thc immigration of  female domestic servants.  The convention regretted the re-,  fusal of the Laurier government to  send a Canadian contingent to South  Africa, endorsed Sir Charles Tupper  for leader of the party and protested  against indigent alien immigration  and the failure of the government to  carry out the pledges lespecting lhe  Chinese ir. Ihis province.  A committee of 15 was nominated to  select a Conservative lender for the  province. J. D. Sibbald being nominated as the Kevelstoke representative  on (ho committee. In order that tl.e  party may no longer be without a  recognized head in the province this  committee will get to work at once  and the choice of a leader will he made  early next month.  Col. Prior was elected president. R.  B. Ellis, secretary. mid., D. K. Ker,  treasurer. Tl.e0 next, convention will  lie held at the New Westminster Fair  again next year. ���������  $2.00 a Year in Advance.  THE MACHINISTS' STRIKE  The Apprentices Join the Strikers.���������;  Mass Meetings in Vancouver and  Winnipeg.  On Monday morning the apprentices  in all the C. P. R. shops from Fort  William to Vancouver were oidered  out by the central committee and  joined the striking machini'-ts. The  four apprentices here, however, had  anticipated the order by quitting work  on Satuiday morning. The engineer,  and assistant engineer here have also  joined the ranks.  In Winnipeg, according to the Tele-,  grimi small doubt is entertained as to  a speedy settlement of the difficulties.  A large nuinber of new men joined the.  strikers yesterday, and every day.  makes a material difference in the  length'of tho roll.  Offers of help  from  olher blanches  of  the  railway  service  have  already  been   received   by   the   central   coniiniltee and it is quite evident that tho,  sympathy of the. various organizations  is with (he machinists in their present,  struggle.    The men  give  it out plain  to the pulilic at this time, that, if conditions become   more complicated ns  time elapses, they are not to  blame as  the management has now had plenty,  of time  to  assure  themselves   nf  the  earnestness of the association  in their  '  demands, nnd if the  officials  are still  desirous of continuing the  fight,   why:  on their heads rests the blame for the'  serious   interruptions   to^   the   public  welfare that will certainly occur. '  The machinists in Vancouver .held a;  meeting on Friday night to explain,  iheir position and t.he reasons for tlle-  strike, at wliich they were assured oft  both the moral support .and financial  .barking of the Amalgamated Society,  of Engineer". The. Vancouver com-,  niittee met Master Mechanic Lacey R.,  Johnson and discussed the schedule ont  Friday afternoon. The meeting" was  of a most amicable nature as excellent,  relations have so far prevailed between  the two parties.'   '      .   ,  A   meeting   was   held   on   Monday,  night of all the emplo3-es in  the C. P. "-1  R. shops here to obtain an  expressions  ot,opinion with regard to the strike.  * -Advices   received  from J.  Macleatv  the Revelstoke delegate at* Winnipeg., '  state.that the   chances..are- favorable,  for a satisfactory  termination  of the  strike .shortly..-      ,.'���������-.','.     ,.--":  .Monday's Winnipeg Telegram ^ays.v  There is nothing really now  to. report',  in Uie progress of ihe_M.achin.sts strike '  except that the usual meetings of com-.'  mittees are being held and the situation .  hangs flre.    The officials of  the  com-:  pany here have absolutely nothing  to  say on the matter and the traffic is ap-.  parently  going  forward  as. usual, al-'  though, several engines,in. the city and ���������  Fort William have been tied up owing  to lack of repairs.       - ..,,,.      ,.  The,meeting called by the. striking;  C. P. R. machinists in the Grand*.,  opera house Sunday afternoon with,  the object of stating their position to  the people uf Winnipeg was attended  by fully 1,200 citizens.  Opening of the New School.  Tuesday was a red letter day in the  history of the Revelstoke public.-chciol  being l.he occasion nf the opening nf  the new school building. The scholars  were busily occupied all the morning  decorating the rooms new and old  with flowers .and branches, with a  very good effect. A 11 p.m. an examination was held of llie children by  their teachers, each class in its own  room and at 2:30 all the children were  marched into Jliss Millard's room,  that being the largest one, and were  drawn up in good order heloro the  visitors. ..There must have been nearly  two hundred scholars piesent and it  would have puzzled many an old drill  sergeant to get that number into lhe  room and paraded within such a small  space as was done without any hitch  or confusion. The children then sang  several choruses, led hy Principal  Sullivan and accompanied hy Miss  Millaid on the organ. The singing  was varied by a clever recitation given  by Miss Jean Sutherland and a speech  from R. Tapping. Tliere were quite a  number of visitors present, showing a  commendable interest taken in the  town in the welfare of the school.  The new building contains'two  spacious and well lighted rooms, a  handsome landing upstairs -and a  small room for private use. It i3 of  course a. considerable iuiprnvement on  our old arrangement's, hut the great  area of glass in the rooms will make  them very hot in hot weather and  hard to keep warm in cold.  Kamloops Group.  J. Laugliton has just returned from*  the Nettie L. mountain where the  Kamloops group is situated. He  reports a late strike of 20 feet of quartz  cairying large quantities of gold,  silver, lead and copper. The lead on  this property was struck at the depth  of about 20 feet and proved to be of  immense width with good walls. This  property is one of the recent discoveries in tlie Laideau. It is only three  miles I'rem Ferguson and is certainly  one of tlie wonders of that now  fauiousdimp. Just as Mr. Laugliton  left they made a valuable strike of  about a foot of solid ore wliich on  being assayed gave ret urns of "IGO ozs.  of silver and 42 per cent. lead. Although it was not assayed for ��������� gold or  copper it. is certain that it will cany .1  good percentage in both. The Kamloops looks like a good property.  Nettie L.  Manager Pool returned from Ferguson on Friday evening last. He  reports work on the lower level tunnel as progressing favorably and  thihks"they"will1easilj--"strike-lhe-lead-  in the 500 feet for whicli a contract  was let. Already lhe water in the  upper workings has been drained off  by the lower level tunnel, which certainly looks as if the tunnel had  reached the same ground. So much  ore liini been taken nut of the upper  workings that stoping had to be  slopped until an ore bouse was built  lo hold it. Wherever the men worked  they have taken out rue in every di  rection and the icsult is simply  astonishing. There cm baldly be a  doubt lhal in the Nettie L the Great  Western Co. has gut hold of one of  the biggest things in Kootenay.  *4*4******'*i&**������-af4f**+4**, jy������'������4^������r'r'r.r.r������*������r'r<r.^^  Not In It.

Clipper.  C. A. Irwin and James Laugliton  have just retui tied fimn tlm Clipper,  located on lho Great Western mountain, on which they have recently  been doing considerable work. The  work done on Ihe Clipper consists of  an open cut of about 2U feel and n  tunnel of nearly the same length on  the lead, wliich is about four feet  wide and has about two feet of ore,  mostly concentrating, although   llier.  galena,  00  ozs.  ���������arrying  is nearly six indies'of solid  which assavs ,���������$() in gold and  silver and 40 per cent, lead, i  copper.

Rainy   Lake   Herald, , says    the, Rat  Portage   Miner   of the 22nd. installt,,  canie-int.o   the "possession -of an  old.  diary of  an   old  .employe's,   now deceased, of the Hudson's Bay company,.)  ;.and-iii-i-eailiiig-it-tliroughThe-!t'ariied   that the writer described very  lucidly,  some mineral deposits on  the eastern ,  shores of.the   Hudson's Bay.   in  thn,  vicinity of Great  and   Little  Whnlw  rivers, in  what is  known as  Ungavii ,  land.    The   description   was   so  clear  that Mr. Osborne succeeded   in   indue-,  ing some Boston capitalists to provide  the necessary funds to equip an  expo- ���������  dition to go and make a search for the  minerals.    The parly  left  here about,  the fiist of June and  Mr.  Osborne  returned heie Satuiday  from   lliu  tiip.  first going to  Oltawa,  .where  he and '  his associates filed on a huge  tract of  valuable lands containing gold, silver,  copper, piecious  stones,   nickel,   iron,,  cinnabar, gypsum, iu  fact almost all  kind-i of  mineral  of economic  value.  He also brought home n   lot  of curio . '  nf Indian handiwork, and  of relics  of*,  the llud-on's Buy company  there  for  the pist 200 veins.     Mr. 0>l~oriH!  snys.  that the new re-gum h.is opened up. so,  fur ai   .Mineral   wealth is  conci rned, ���������  puts the Klondike in the shade, ond he*  says that Mr. Lowe,  nf the  Canadian ���������  genlogh al survey, who has put in two  vears investigating that country, savs '  it.   is the  milling   mineral   producing  region   of  the    American   continent. .  Tliere i������ plenty of  mom  for  prospecting as the legion is -100 by COO miles iu i  extent.    The country  ran   be  reached,  bv     waler     from    Boston,    and   Mr. .  Osborne says that next spring his coin- :  pany  will outfit a   steamer   and  will  send her right,  up   to   their properly1  with   S100.000  worth  of supplies anil;  materials for exploring and developing  t heir claims.    Tlie   experience  of  Mr.  O-bnrne only goes lo verify the claims  of Ihe writer, for the past six yeai-s.  that the whole of  Ciinad-i.   from  the,  wilds of Labrador to the Pacific coast,  is one of nature's greatest  storehouses ,  of minerals of economic and  precious  value.   If this region were opened up.  by a railway there would certainly be  a rich field fur  all   kinds, of  uiining  enterprises.   Besides anthracite coal,  we   found   lignite,   beds   of    gypsum  along the Mi.ssan.ibi; deposits of gold. ���������'  silver, copper, tin, near Moose Factory;  and fine potters' clay and  silica saud.  In all we had a great trip, and saw  lots   worth   seeing,   and   much  more ,  than I have told  you.

The reports of Judge Baldwin's  speech, have evoked wide columns,  mostiv of a comdemnatory character  Dr. Gerardus A.

Sam Tuggins was preparing to lake  unto himsolf a. wife. He had taken t.o  greasing his boots and wearing white  shirts on Sundays. What reason was  there for ti doubt after that?  Sam Tuggins had boon married  before to some extent. He had, to put  it mildly, enjoyed a large and promiscuous assortment o������ wives during  his time.  Sam had been married six times, to  be exact about it, and he was not,  siricllv speaking, an old man yet. As  lie frequently jocularly remarked, he  was good lo outlive a dozen more  wives if he continued to have ordinary  good health.  So, being a widower for the sixth  time he was preparing to tako titilo  hiinsc-ir the seventh wife. It was nol  known vet who would have the honor  of becoming Mrs. Tuggins VII. Tuggins, even, was not decided on that  point.  One day he rode over to Beckett's  mill, and he and Beckett in a liltle  friendly conversation fell to discussing  this matter.  "I'm going to marry," Tuggins said.  "That much is settled, and I'm going  to marry right away, too. I've got to  liave a wife, for 1 need her, and need  her bad. It's been three months  since my last one died, and as a consequence o������ having nobody .to look  aftor matters, everything about the  house is going to waste and ruin."  "'Can't lind anybody that suits you?"  Beckftt. asked.  "Yes, I have had two women in  mind," Tuggins replied, ''either would  do very well, but the question it which  would suit mc best."  "1*011 can't decide, eh?"  "No, I can't. If I could I wouldn't  he fooling away all this time without  a wife."  "I can't believe.that Tuggins. But  do you mind tolling me what two  women you have in mind?"  "Of course not. One oC them is the  Widow Smart, and the other is Miss  Wofford. They are hoth likely women.  Beckett, and I calkilate either of !em  would mako me a good wife."  "Miss Wofford is the youngest and  best looking of the two," Beckett  suggested.  - "Yes, and her age is right smart in  her favor," Tuggins said, "but T don't  to a cent on looks.. My opinion is  that beauty don't count for anything  in a wife's favor. Tho beautitulest  woman going ain't likely to do . any  more work or bring in one more dollar  '-haii the hnmlicst old plug you can  scare up. What 1 want is a woman  who will bo helpful���������one that can turn  her hantl to all kinds ot work, and  who ain't afraid to do it."'  "Then you rather lean toward tlie  widow?"  "No. I can't say ns 1 do. They're  both got their points. Miss Wof-  fortl's strong points is her age. Bein'  voting, she's likely to live longer than  l.he other. That's a heap in her  favor, for I tell you this burying and  marrying wives is expensive when It  comes on a man so often. But on the  other hand, the widow offers advantages. She's a good worker, she's  :eonomical, and she's tough. For a  woman of her ago she's strong and  heal thy. and, after all, she may possibly outlive tho olher.','  "Maybe    the      women      themselves  -mightlhe!p_you_o.iit__-   Beckett   .sug-  jested.  "How?'" Tuggins inquired.  "You  haven't Risked either o* them  He went direct to the Widow Smart's  and to her made the same announcement, that he had made to Mis Wofford. She received it graciously, and  with a smile and a smirk, blushingly  named the day for tho wedding. She  was vory shy and demure, and her  manner was all honey and sugar.  In time the wedding     day arrived  a  h  ri.ige ceremony -was performed.  It was a month later whon. one day,  Tuggins rodo over to Beckett's mill.  H-5 and Beckett, as was their wont,  'ell into a neighborly conversation.  Afc last Beckett made bold to speak of  that which had been in his mind from  tho moment Tuggins had ridden up.  Ho said:  "Tugins. soothing has gone wrong  with won."  ������������������How do you know?'' Tuggins asked.  ���������T can see it in your looks and actions. You are not the man you have  b"_n. Tuggins. not. near the man.  You have a sad. dejected nnpcaraiico,  ���������nul you impress me with the idea  that you have been having lots of  ti oublf."  "Beckett, you are right. I have been  having trouble, and lots of it. too. I  am ovor my ears in trouble now.  "What is the matter?" Beckett  nslrerl.  "F-vorvthinir is the matter." Tuggins  answered. "But the chief thing thnt  *<- the matter is that I am a fool, and  that T Imve plnycl the fool a. little the  biggest of anybody in this part of the  country."  "What have you  done?"  "i'x-p. gone and  made    the    mistake  of man-vine one wife  too many."  "Hasn't the widow turned out to be  a? good a  wife as you expected?"  "Slio's turiiPd out to be a regular  old Harry.-'" Tuggins snapped, "and  Tm no longer boss in my "own bouse.  In fact, I don't dare call anything my  own. not ovon my snul.-"  "Onu't, you break her to your will "  "Break"nothing! Tve tried that  once, and T ain't going to be fool  enough to try it again. Do you see  these knots on my-head? Well, that  come of trying to break hnr to my  will. She wore a chair out on me.  She won't work and sho spends money  liko water. O. Tve got that old  critter on mv hands for life, and I'll  never see another minute of peace."  Beckett offered a little consoling  language, but he did not moan a word  nt it. Ho was of the opinion that  Tuggins had at last got just what he  deserved, and was getting his account  squared in his own coin.���������Exchange.

It is looked  upon as a monstrosity, a grotesque  with which to frighten children,  fashioned in an ugly and forbidding  form by a sculptor who had once  held high art ideas,' but had failed  to carrv them out.

He parodied humanity in  their construction; he-made iheni a  hideous and. fiendish libel on mankind. This "was not a fulfillment o������  his early art dreams���������it was his latter  day  nightmare.  lt was a "morbid sculptor who carved the gargoyles on ihe parish church  of Mitc'hel-Hampton. He had taken  oeculiar pains with one that jutted  over a corner of the chancel wall.  Ir. was with grim satisfaction that  be shaped ils long pointed ears,  its three goggle eyes, its stumpy legs  ..ith web feet, its flat nostrils, hump  back and cav->raous, gaping mouth.

A couple o������ old cronies, bont  double with age, tottering, and leaning on their sticks, passed along ths  path   beneath   him.  "These young folks be fules, a-  dreamin' o' happiness in this world.  She's a white and red faced lass, an'  lie a big, manly boy, but they'll ha'  their share o' trouble, though things  do seem so bright at Iheir weddin'.''  "Ab, Ethel bo be-u-tiful enough,  and Ralph he be a smart one.but they  be a couple of precious fules, as ye  be a-sayin'. An' when's it goin' lo  be?"  "Come Sunday week it'll be come  and gone.

The agony of his straining  eyes was. intenscr, and he yearned to  curse Ralph, humanity in general,  tlio siv.es, tue sculptor who bad fashioned him. But most of all he longed lo curse ICtnel. the whilholm dream  of his lonely days and lonelier nights  And iho hinges of lhe lych-gate  creaked, and a little lissome Uu-js  cune through unci turned her face  with a smile toward Quintin. And  he could see that il was the pretty,  sweet, lace of l-lhel. tne face tliat.  was soon to be pillowed nightly sidj  by   sine   with   Ralph's.  And Ethel's face was withdrawn  from tlie gargoyle, and she camo  slowly along the path that skirted  lho chancel wall, and Quintin's poor  heart seemed to be bursting wilhin  him, anti ho strained to be free as  the mortals are.  And Ethel's stops had  brought her  just   beneath   Quintin.       In   another  :;econd  she would  have  been   around  the corner.

A tunnel that will be  3000 feet long is being drilled through  Bull Dog mountain, ln order lo get  iiast i? the tiain climbs over the hill  by a series of switchbacks, much  liter the fashion of climbing a corkscrew.  Crossing the Kettle the traiii stopped at Cascade. . This town lias a  oeautiful situation, the roar of oom-  .nerce has pinched within its cou-  mes to a whisper. In the crcwd et  -he siation I noticed W. Beach Wil-  .ox. His countenance had a sancii-  .led tint, while his smile denoted  ihat peculiar pathos which emanates  irom a pi-inter when he sees thc live  ad cut down in ils prime by the  cold and indifferent band of hard  times. Cascade City has a Inline  cut no present. From this point to  ui-and Forks the train rolls "through  .oasioral scenery. It is in a valley  and ranches arc numerous. From the  ..ar window 1 can see animals that  much resemble the creatures tliat  roam thiough the Lucerne of America  .luring the night in search o������ my  Vater barrel. The railroad lies between the rival towns of Grand  Forks and Columbia, and has its station in the outer fringe of the latter  Durg.  ' The ground is level around these  towns, and after a few attempts I  tound 1 could aalk on it. I strolled'  chrough Columbia in search o������ a  remedy for starvation. Meeting n  distant relative of the Ananias lam-  ily I was informed that no grub could  be located in that town until a ccr-  cain hcur. A minute later I saw a  sign that stated that *" if I wanted  "���������ot'fee like my ma used to make io  como in and get it. I walked in  and found a country restaurant ir.  full blast. The boss was chewing  tobacco in a very fluent and artistic  manner. He set up a few lines lor  me of meat, bread and potatoes along  with a bowl ot" coffee he was bragging  about on the outer wall. After I  had drank it I knew that Ananias  had more than one relative doing  business in that town. My, ma could  oeat this genius all hollow making  coffee.  ��������� Musing over the veracity of - lho  present age, I sauntered gently down  the snght topographical depression  that exists between these two towns  arid found myself on the,main street  of the beautiful and busy city oi  Grand Forks just as Old Sol kissed  the horizon good night and went oif  shift. Here I was. al.alone and in a  great city, while' all around mo" I  could hear-sounds of hilarity. . The  ouzens had just been entertained by  an cxhibtion of a'steam fire engine  that they proposed to purchase. As  . is customary with me in strange  places I soon found the printing  office by the direction or Billy Kell-  em. Billy is not so fat as when he  was in Kaslo and his whiskers have  that * iron grey appearance that denotes the flight of time. "In lhe  print shop I met F. C. McCarter doing job work, as he has recently sold  his paper to John Reavis. Mac told  me he has done business in many  towns between cyclonic Kansas and  the sea breezy shore of Washigton  state. He once owneel the Spokane  Chronicle and sold- it for $33,000.  During the first ^three months he ran  a paper in Grand Forks he only took  in ?7. Fortune had lately smiled on  Mac and he is now able to get  money on his check and tickle his  appetite with the fizzy colllns. He  has a son Earl; who is about to  tamper with'-the -habit that has  brought ruin and desolation on many  a happy and prosperous family. Earl  will start a daily paper this week.  Grand Forks should be proud of  the Yale, hotel. It is modern and  metropolitan in, its- ' .appointments,  with a rotunda that is well defined.  With its walls 1 met W .A.Harkiu,  formerly city' editor of the Montreal  Star,,- who ^introduced me -to Mayor  Manley; J.A.Smith tand many others,  6c:il   and   gen~era.l^^inipm*t:uice7  the summit the crowd swarmed. Ex-  Senator Miller and Colonel Jim McNaught were in the rush. The colonel  bought all the hard boiled eggs in  sight, besides making a deal for several sandwiches, made out of raw  ham and bread that was heavy  enough to pass for galena. Although  I aa against the French since they  cold-decked Dreyfus, 1 found that  hunger had no conscience, so I swallowed all thc sardines in ono box and  took a look at the scenery for dessert. About 15 miles from Robson  the traiii had to slow down in order  to avoid running over several deer  that wore standing on the track.  After this all was monotony and t  reached the Lucerne of America satisfied that it is worth ?10,000 a mile  to build a' road into the Boundary.

To the Editor of the llKn.u.i >.  Dear Sir: Kindly allow me a little  space iu youi- paper lo express an  opinion on the passing show. The  other day a life insurance acent was  in town i-epreA'iitit-.g an American  life iiis.urnni'"- company, and before  leaving (for they always do) the city  he stated that he hnd written .$00,000  nf new business in the day nr two he  was here. -No doubt this statement  is characteristic "f an insurance agent,  but the facts are that this class of  travelling agent, often makes a good  cleanup from the labors of the local  agents who have their business nearly closed wnen these polished fellows,  with" statements that are not facts,  persuade those who are not well up in  life insurance husiness tliat tbey can  offer a far better contract thnn Ihe  local agent,"who may represent the  best Canadian company.  The facts are that we do nol have to  go to the United States to find reliable  insurance companies. A Canaeli-in  company can give you insurance at  -from.82-tQ.85..pn_the=.thousnnd cheaper  The grievance of the striking C.P.R.  in n chin ist s is not, as lias been stated  that they want more pay and less  work. The specific question nt issue  is the recognition of their union by the  company. The wages might lie placed  on the schedule basis to-morrow and  hefore twelve months reductions in  individual cases would begin ngain  and satisfaction would he as far off as  it is now. The individual might appeal  to lhc foreman, but his chance of  getting his wages put back to the  schedule standard would bo pretty  slim. The appeal would pass from the  foreman's hands through half a dozen  officials into some pigeon hole and  the.ehe sidetracked for all eternity.  But, the complaint of a union recognized by the company is a very  different mutter. The grievance dealt  with misht be only the grievance1 of  one individual man, but backed by the  weight of the union behind it. it would  go at once to headquarters in Montreal  and receive speedy attention. It was  the refusal of the company to accord  the recognition of the union tint produced the snike, Tin: Winnipeg  Telegram says :  " The company refuse to accede to  their di'tniiiids ignorantly as they do  not know what tlieir demands are.  The men have tried tn obtain a hearing, but lhe company steadi'.islly  rcfuAO in ncknou-lcdg-; the union in  any way, hence Lhe men have been in  a measure compelled to adopt their  pi-eseiit course. They have certain  grievances which they \\i-di lo discuss  and a.'('denied :ui opportunity of doing  sn. If the company would meet the  men, tbey feel assured thai in a few  hours every man would be bark lo  work. The fight the men are making  is for recognition, but lhe company  seem to underrate the intelligence nf  tlie men, but the machinists propose  to wait until they are acknowledged,  after which lhey are prepared to  negotiate a settlement, of the .other  items in the schedule presented.
