To tlie local lodges of B. L. E���������   B.   L.  V., O. R. C��������� B. R*. T. und O. R. T.:  At. a joint meeting of the above  organizations the following resolutions were adopted unanimously, und  endorsed hy the Local Lodges of the  organizations above mentioned, and  the Committee whose signatures who  are attached hereto, avc appointed to  forward a copy of same to sister  organizations and request them to  take prompt and similar action :  Whereas, there appears to be no  prospect of nn early settlemert regarding the difficulty between the  Canadian Pacific Railway Co., and its  striking Maintenance-of-way men.  And whereas said strike has continued during the past six weeks, and  the Canadian Pacific Railway Co. have  heen apparently unable to procure a  sufficient number of men to keep the  road-bed in its normal condition.  And whereas, the only apparent  reason for the continuance of the  strike is the determinations of the  Canadian Pacific Ry. Co. to refuse  recognition to the Brotherhoods of  Railway Trackmen.  And whereas, said refusal of recognition of said organization is a  denial to the members thereof of representation and is also a blow aimed  at the basic principles of organized  labor, justice and natural rights.  Aud whei'tas the jCiinadian Pacific  Railway Co. have refused the good  offic es of the tfeneral Chairman of the  B. L: E., O. R. C. and B.'ot R. T., and  as said refusal doth'cle'arlyv show, .that  the responsibility "of the continuance  'of the strike rest's' solely with the  Canadian Pacific Railway Co. "'  -** .And whereas the.employes in train  service-are.*, being.put. to unnecessary  annoyance arid.their .lives; jeopardized.  Therefore be it resolved tbat this  meeting of the Five' Brotherhoods  jointly assembled,' do hereby instruct  the General Chairman of the skid |  Brotherhoods to proceed at once to the  highest officials of the Canadian Pacific  Railway Co., and, if neeosary, also to  the Dominion Government, and in  each instance forcefully place before  both the' prevalent conditions* of  affairs, and strongly press for an  immediate settlement of the strike.*  Resolved that the Brotherhoods here  jointly assembled do guarantee to  compensate the several chairmen while  engaged in carrying out the provisions  of the attached, as provided for in the  laws governing the organizations to  which they belong.  A copy of these  resolutions   to be  forwarded to the General Chairmen.  Signed by Representatives.  The above is a copy of a resolution  passed at a joint meeting of the local  lodges of the five brotherhoods at Fort  William last .week.  MINING DISASTERS  In Toronto By the SJlvertonian  Mr. Dooley.  ��������� ������������������MininY' said Mr. Dooley to his  friend Hennessy, "is a terrible rhisky  business."  - "It is that," answered Mr. Henne������=sy.  "Ink at th' poor devils wid their black  eyes' nishin' to th'.dhi-ug sthores fr  bromy siltzer after a pay day. It must  be turrihle hiit'-td on thim."  "It's not thim Ihespikin' about,"  interjected Mr. Dooley, "they can  always'-, orghatiize a sthrike an' go  fishin' in th' dog days. It's the poor  man wid th' capital I'll be sorry f r.  Take that man Gcodherman, , fr  insthnnce, Hinnisy, it's fr the loikes  av him me heai-rt bleeds. There he is  Hinnisy. in Toronto, working harr'd  for his money, bottlin' th' cup that  cheeis and inehviatt-F. wid the mercury  boilin' in the ice house, aft-Hid t' taste  a drup av his own bottlin] f'r fear he  wud whander down'' by th' Sthoek  Exchange an' dhrop some tips. You've  played enough av thim on the cour-i*se  Hinnisy, lo know how disastrous they  *?an be."  "Oi have," said Mr. Hennessy, very  emphatically.  "But one day hi������ feelin's gets th'  bistav him, an' a lurrking reporter  hears his ravin's. Th' nixt day th'  papers say "Great Sthroike on th'  War Aigle' or th' Cintre Stbar a  Bonanzy.' As good luk wud ha** it he  has more sthoek than his thrunk will  hold so he distributes it alongt wid  some nuggets behind th' phlate KbUn  windys in a confident's office. Too  see, Hinnissy, what wid his own stack  an his girrl's Black-stock, he has his  han's full. Bat he sends up a chikia to  Alko Hall, which fate house is catted,  and while his wife if plocktn* tb' bin  he sits ou th' front stips an' watches  th' throlleys go past wid th' preachers  an' widdies. These hav seen th  papers an' are riwhin' to th' biokers to  mine in Wnr Aigle'certificates. That  word broker, mind ye Hinnissy, is no  josh; they've bruk many. In a day  or two it lakes out av th' Gooderhaiu  disthrillery that th' sthrike is nuthin'  wurth spakin' av, an' thin th' widdies  an' preachers come ringin' th' dure  hell at Alko Hall an' want to sell back  their sthoek. 'Will ye buy il?" says  they. 'Me fellow shuffereis,' says he,  c-hokin' wid emotion, 'av course, I will,  lit a phroper dishecunt.' An av course  his sthocks go down wid th' rest an' th'  papers tell what he lostminin', an his  wife hires wan av the widdies to do  th' rough work."  "But ( thought that th' War A igle  was a good mine*" suid the puzzled Mr.  Hennessy. *  "It makes no diffeience, said Donley,  "look at the insurance money the widr  die* Inst an' see th' preachers takin' up  missionary collections to come even f'r  the money thay dropped minin'. 'Twas  not dropped down lh'shaft, moind ye  HinnisBy, although th' preachers wud  say it had gone deeper than Hiatus  far-r as tfiey weie concerned. Where  did th' money go? ye'iis^. You'll have  to ask th' brokers.   They had  it last."  A Point Well Taken.  It will be remembered that in the  investigation following upon the  assassination of King Humbert of  Italy it was disclosed that iht> plot  originated in Patterson.,N. J., among  i> colony of Italian Anarchists, and  Bresci, the man selected to commit the  crime, crossed over to Italy from the'  UniteJ States for that express purpose.  Slnx-e the trackmen's strike it is well  known that the Canadian Pacific  Railway Company have imported  Italian laborers from all parts of the  United States, and that hundreds of  these Italians gathered up in the hot  beds of anarchy in the*" United States,  are now e.uployed as section men all  over'the'C. P. R. system, hut more'  particularly on th'e" West and Pacific-  divisions. Inside of six weeks Great  Britain's future King, the Duke of  Cornwall and York, will be crossing  the continent on tbe Canadian Pacific  Railway. Is it safe' for , Canada's  national highway to be entirely at the  mercy of aliens, among''whom-it, is  quite'"possible ^-there.. msvy t.be ,, ninny  AnarchistR of the-Paterson. N.

Canadian Matterhorn   Unconquered.  Mount Assiniboia, the Matterhorn  of the Caqadian Rockies,' after seven  attempts in as many seasons, is still  uncovered. ��������� Walter D. -Wilcox,* of  Washington, D. C.,'and Henry G.  Bryant, ex-president of tbe Geographical Society of Philadelphia; accompanied by two Canadian Pacific- Swiss  guides, were defeated recently, in an  attempt to reach its summit, .although  an altitude of 11,125 feet was attained.  This is a much higher point than has  previously been reached. Fi-enz, the  chief Swiss guide, says that Mount  Sir Donald, the highest of the Selkirk  peaks, is a morning walk compared to  Mount Assiniboia. Professor Fay, of  Tufts college, Boston, and Messr**.  Scattegood~and-~Oitratrir^of~Fhiludel-  phia, accompanied by Swiss guides,  succeeded in making the first ascent  of Mount Vanx aud Chancellor Peak,  but were defeated on Mount Goodsir.  Messrs. Charles Thompson, of Dallas,  Texas, C.W. Weed, of New Vork, and  W. Little, of Brunswick, Maine, with  Swiss guides, failed to reach the  summit of Mount Hunguble, which  tbe guides claim will prove another  Assiniboia. The ascent.of Mount Sir  Donald was mostsucaessfully.made on  Saturday by Mr. aud Mis. Berne,, of  Kent, England, Mrs. Berne being (he  first lady who has reached the summit.  THE GEORGIA  MINSTRELS  TO AVERT  STRIKES  -j-.  British Columbid Superintendent Prefers Union to Non-  Union Employes.  Mr. R. O. Clute, in a letter to the  Globe, discusses the possibility ol  avoiding strikes. His arguments rest  on the evidence of Superintendent S.  M. Robins, of- the .New Vancouver  Coal Company. '  The company has for ten years held  to an agreement with the Mine  Labourers'Protective Association, by  which none but union men are to be  employedand by which lhe association,  in return, promises to exhaust every  means of conciliation before deciding  on a strike.  Although this agreement concerns  over 1,400 men, it has for ten years  averted all friction between employer  and employe. On one occasion, during  a period of depression, the mincis  without a dissentient voice vol ed to  reduce their wages by .*ii20,000 per  month. ,  Superintendent Robins* finds dealing  with olliceis of a union preferable to  dealing with the men individually.  ���������Matters," be says, "Lhat are biought  home through the union have gone  through a. process of sifting and revision and all artificial grievances  have, in most instance?, been eliminated before coming to me. That is one  reason. Another reason is that in a  well organized and, reasonably well  conducted union . no countenance  should be given to the. airing of personal grievances between lhe men and  the bosses. ,I think those are the  principal reasons."  Mr. and Mrs. G. S. MeCarter and  family returned from a visit to Supt.  and Mrs. Douglas - at Banff on Monday. : ,'  .       **  - ~w    '  , D. J. McDonald, "* Governor Mcintosh Vex pert, '.accompanied hy Mr.  Steward the Company's engineer,' paid  a visit-to the Fish creek .camp last  week and was very much pleased'with  whathesaw.

Atkins  secretary-treasurer.  The Forest in Flames.  A big bush fire is raging at Ten  Mile, on the Big Bend trail, which  started from a tree which fell across  the trail and was probably set on fire  in order to clear it out of the way.  The lire was so hot on both siues of  the trail on Alonday that Geo. La-  forine's park train had to gallop for  over a mile to get through. Tbe  immense masses of white smoke,  which formed on the top of the" mountain behind the town formed a magnificent sight. There are other fires  leported on the Big Bend trail, one  between Downie and Carnes and  another at the Devil's garden, this  side of Goldstream. South of town a  bush fire has been burning for some  time around the'settlement across the  Illecillewaet,- which seems to have  taken its rise, in the fire which destroyed Julian's shingle mill. There  lire also big fires--reported- on. 'Fish  River.

Jt is an  undoubted fact also that it acts   as   a  kind of a bogey to detercapital, which  might otherwise be disposed to invest  in thejdevelopment  of   the   mineral  wealth of Kootenay.    And these evils  cannot be said   to   be   offset   by   the  revenue accruing to the province from  the   proceeds  of   the   tax,   since   its  supporters   invariably   argue   that   a  tax, which brings in   so   little cannot  possibly  be   burdensome.     However  Mr. Turner himself  admits  that   the  tax is not ideally perfectand intimates  that the   whole   subject  of   the   taxation   of   mining   properties is it very  complicated and difficult  one.   which  the provincial government   will   have  to go  into   more   thoroughly   in   the  future.  In this connection the IIehai.b  would again submit the impropriety  of lumping up every form of the mining industry except coal under the  head of metalliferous mining for  purposes"of taxation and legislation.  "What similarity for instance is there  when one looks into the matter between the mining of free milling gold  quartz and the winning of the silver-  lead ones: which form so remarkable a  ���������-featui-e���������'Of���������Kooteim>-'s���������mineral" i'C~-~  sources.

D.iU'd this 1st day of June. 1001.  F. C: G it ken:  je .sums of money  have  to  be  provided for roads, trails,  bridges, etc., in   order   to   enable   the  mine:;, to develop their properties.   At  least S2O0,0OJ of the expenditure  voted  for   thu   present   year  on such works  may be placed to woi ka for the  benefit  of  uiinin*;   development   in   the  province,     whilst     the    total     revenue  estimated from mineral tax   is ������80.000.  A   representative   of the mine owners  during last session stated to  me   that  the 2 per cent, tax would shut up the  mines of British   Columliiu.   I  asked  him to he sure to refrain from publishing such a statement, as it would  have  a very injurious ell'ect on the province,  for   if   a   payment,   of   under .$3o,000,  which   was   all   it   w.asac   lhat time,  would shut up in industry making an  export of over eleven   million  dollars,  there   must   be    something seriously  ������ 1 ong about the whole  management  of this great industry.    The claim that  this   tux   of   2 per cent, on minerals is  unfair to mines of low grade ore is  the  put  of the memorial most worthy of  consideration.    Jt has always been felt  by the government that low grade ore  might under the method of assessment  laid down  in   the act, be more heavily  taxed in proportion to profit than ore  of   richer   quality.    With   a   view to  eiuedy   any   such   unfairness,    if    it-  exists,  most careful investigation has  been and is being made by the government into the whole system of taxation, with the olijeot of introducing an  .ict at the next session that will, if it is  possible,   fairly adjust the incidence of  all taxation.   At the same time it must  not  be   forgotten   that   in all mining  countries mines are subject to taxation  and   in   most   the  taxation   is  much  heavier than in British   Columbia.    If  we   take Natal, for   instance,   we find  mines   are  subject   to   pay :   Mining'  claim, ������2 per month: machinery stand,  10s. per month ; royally 1\ per cent, on  value   of  mineral  at   mine  (not  net  value).  "In ' the state of Iowa mines are assessed as real property, at one-fourth  of market value and pay this from the  commencement, whether making a  profit or loss.  "In   Illinois mines are assessed   at  '  full value as   real   estate   or  personal  property and the shares of the-same  mines are also taxed. . j  "In Colorado, mines are taxed, at  one-fifth of gross income, and to this  is added the value of all improvements  and works ou mine, and the shares are  also taxed. ,  ' "In almost all of the states, in fact,  mines are taxed higher than in British  Columbia, and they get little in  return, as roads, trails, etc.. are not  made and kept in order by the state to  anything like the extent of these  works in British Columbia. In fact,  the mine companies have as a rule tc"  make their own roads.  "As I have said if this province  followed the old system of taxing  mines as real and personal pioperty, a  much larger revenue would be derived,  but it certainly would more injuriously  afJect most mines than the present  system. Take the Le Roi for instance,  valued at five million dollars. The tax  on this, would amount at least to  $37,000, or more than the total amount  collected from all the mines in the  province, last vear: and-this methti,!,.-  though it seems to be generally  .idopted iu the States, would seriously '  affect mines being opened aud,, es- '  pecially the mines of low grade ore,  CERTIFICATE OF IMPROVEMENTS  NOTICE.

"As shown by the [public accounts,  the total amount of the tax collected  to June 1900 was JJ31.S0L This on an  output valued by the mine owners at  over eleven million dollais, the tax  lieing not quite one-tenth of one per  cent. In the same year the canneries  of the province paid over 1} per cent,  on their whole product, though most  of them were operated at a los.*- on the  year's working. The same applies to'  all the business of the province and  al-oof all other countiies taxes have  to be paid whether profit or loss is  Hindi..  "As to the share of the but den of  taxation borne by metal mining,in  proportion to other industries, put  down as 50 per cent, of the whole, or  S^.527,273. there is no explanation of  how this is arrived at. U is evident  that the customs duties, with whicli  the provincial government has.  nothing to do, are added. As to the  pi oportion of pi ovincial taxes borne  by the mines, they appear to be as  follows: Total taxes collected in the  3'ear ending 39th June, 1000. $392,698  of this the mineral tax amounted to  $31,894; not one tenth of the whole."  "I think the memorialists should  have been more careful in compiling  sUtet'nents. the effects of which, aa  given to- the public must be most  inj.it ions. They should know that  the" subject of taxation is a most  ilinici.lt one. At the present trae the  province of Ontario]and somelof tho  stales have commissions examining  into this important matter thoroughly,  with a view to equitably adjusting*  taxation, but they find it a most complicated, business, and so far have not  reported or have only issued interim  reports, and appear to have arrived so  far at no better system than those  already in existence." *t4-^^4**_.*M������l.*l.*J?**4.4.^+4*'i.*4**J**i.*-i'*i'  ���������f  f  Disinfectants!!
