"Wallace has completed a deal  for tho town-Mil*, of Camborne in the  Lardeau mining division. Mr. "Wallace has been travelling'for tho past  live months pretty well over Uritish  Columbia, and as far north as Alaska,  looking for an investment in real  estate or mines, ova good business  venture. Until quite recently he  found nothing of a promising nature.  On his arrival at Vancouver, al'ter his  trip nortli, he picked up a Vancouver  Province containing an article on  Camborne, 11. C. and its surrounding  properties. lie started for Camborne  tho following day and spent several  days there in looking over the properties of the camp, with the result  that he was so much impressed with  the future of tho place that hu took an  option to purchase some 300 acres of  the only available land for a townsite,  on which there wero at that time,  about liftoen buildings, and wliich  was about to be platted and put on  the market by Cory Menhenick, late  mining recorder for that section.  Mr. Menhenick arrived in Rossland  a few days ago to meet Mr. "Wallace,  and on Monday tho liiial transfer was  mado and. Mi*. "Wallace is now the  business and financial manager of  Camborne, though Mr. Menhenick  still retains a substantial interest, as  ho has great faith in the future  possibilities of thc embryo city.  Thu town is rapidly growing, and  about 200 men aro employed in and  about tho .surrounding mining properties. The government wagon road,  which is now under construction from  Thompson's Landing to Camborne,  will be completed by about Uio middle  of October uoxfc. This road is some  six miles long, and the giade is a very  easy one as Camborne is only 200 feet  above the level of Upper Arrow lake.  The ore deposits in and around Camborne are" extremely rich, antl while  the principal excitement at present is  over the immense bodies of free milling, gold, quart-/., -Koine*-.' high* -.grade  silver-load properties are being worked, and among the latter is the Beatrice upon which about! was recently  taken for $50,000 for a two-thirds interest. - -  Most prominent among the'free gold  properties, all of wliich are under bond  at prices ranging froni $30,000 to a  quarter 'of a million, - are the Gold  Finch, tho Eva. thc Oyster, Criterion,  Rossland, Cholla and Sir "Wilfrid.  Samples taken by Mr. Wallace from  these properties show free gold to the  naked eye, and even samples which  show nothing "in sight" will leave a  good deposit of gold when crushed by  hand in a mortar and horned out  from tho dross. , '  Mr. "Wallace leaves for Camborne in  a few days, and will at once assume  the active management of the town-  site. Ho proposes to start considerable improvement work in the way of  street grading, etc. He will appoint  an agent hero to look after the Rossland end of the business, ancl has  already booked a number of appli-  cTitionsfor 16ts"ijrhi.s~pWi������iisii%~t"owfi7  Mr. Wallace is vory cnthusastic about  tho future of Camborne, predicting it  will bo a second Rossland and that it  resembles the latter in being; situated  at the base of a mountain upon which  aro great ore deposits.���������Rossland  Miner.

(i. ...GItOGAN, Editor.  Saturday, Auiuist 21, 1901.  THE NEW TACTICS.  Capital on this side of tho water  has, as might be expected, been quick  to take the hint alTorded by the recent  decision of the lawyers in the House  of Lords in the old country. By giving  corporations power to sue the Iradet*  unions for damages incurred through  the action of thc unions in ordering  strikes or preventing in any way the  companies from procuring the services  of men to lake thc strikers' places, or  in any other way interfering with the  companies' business, this dictum of the  law lords threatens to cut at the vory  foundations of unionism. If the funds  of a union are liable lo be thus attacked, strikes will become out of tho  question and labor reduced to disorganized impotence. The decision is  the most effective weapon wliich the  law in Great Britain has at any time  placed in the hands of the corporations.  It is small wonder,, therefore, to lind  capital on this side bringing it to  bear. The first cases of the kind are  pending in Rossland right now. The  Rossland Great Western JMincs, Ltd..  the Le Roi Mining Co., Ltd., and th**  Centre Star Mining Co., Ltd., are  suing the Rossland Miners' Union, the  Western Federation of Miners and  other, unions aud individuals for  damages for procuring certain persons  who had entered into contracts with  the plaintiffs to break their contracts,  conspiring to induce others not to  enter into contracts with ihe plaintiffs  and for intimidating said persons to  the injury of the plaintiffs. In the  Le Roi case the damages arc set ai  $50,000.  On the decisions in these cases a  great deal depends. If they go against  the unions und these tactics" become  generally adopted by the corporations  on this side of the Atlantic, then in a  very short while labor of all kinds  from the most highly skilled down will  find its only lawful weapon of defence  against the aggression of capital  dashed from its hands.    And then ?  THE PUBLIC BE  It seems that nothing is to be allowed  to stand in the way of providing -Mr.  McRae with an official job. Tn spite  of the wishes of everybody in town,  with the exception of possibly half -a  dozen persons at the very outside,  this precious central post ollice scheme  is to be forced upon us. It is no ns-e  protesting or petitioning. Mr. .McRae  miiit be provided for and the job  rushed through. So little <!o those.  who are engineering this disgraceful  businebs take any stock in the public  interest, that as lhey have .failed to  get any other place to suit their ideas,  the school children are to be turned  out of the lower floor of the oddfellows  building at the corner of .Second and  Government streets, in order thnt Mr.  McRae may be installed there inste.id.  The school trustees have received  notice to get out by   the   end   of   the  month and have now-to hustle   round  o  ancl hunt np some other building for  Miss Fraser's room full of little children. The trustees have to clear out  their belongs by Monday, Sept. 30th.  The new post, oflice opens up there on  Tuesday morning Oct. 1st. What  kind of chaos the mail of tbis city will  be reduced to for the first few weeks  of the new office, with a perfectly unexperienced man in charge* and wilh-  out any proper facilities for handling  the mail matter, we leave onr readers  to imagine for themselves. Messrs  Galliher and McRae must think that  the Revelstoke people have very few  tights that they uie bound to   respect.  DONE BROWN.  Whether in* no the result of the New  Westminster I'lection wn Woiliies lay  last amounts constitutionally to a vole  of want of confidence in the Dunsmuir  ministry is a point which, it would  seem, it is for Sirlleniy .loly to deride.  However, that may be if bus practical-  cooked the government goose. Mr.  Urnwii is now a member of the cabinet  without a sent in the legislature. A  scat he has either to gut or resign his  portfolio. The scandal of private and  irresponsible individuals conducting  the business ofthe piovince is one, lo  wliich British Columbia expects Sir  Henry lo put an cud. We have hud  all we want of lhat class of political  comic opera. Of course tliere is a seat  opened iu Victoria, by lhe resignation  of Mr. Turner, whicli Mr. Brown can  conlt'sl. Hut for n man turned down  yesterday in bis own particular stamp  ing ground uud political preserve in  New Westminster it would be a very  forlorn hope to tackle I he business in  a si range cily such as Victoria. The  situation is ono full of perplexities for  Mr. Brown.  11 is no less so lor the nii'iiibt'is of  tlio Ouusuuiir cabinet, upon whom  Mr. Brown was forced as a tolleagui',  but who have -smothered their ri'scnt-  inent and hung on, wailing to see.  which way the ball was going to h'ip.  They cannot veiy well resign now and  go into opposition and lhey must  recogni/.o the fact that lhey have small  mercy to expect from their con-  stilucnts.'when the inevitable crash  comes. Meanwhile there is an attractive opening I'or a bright, active, pushing young man, in neodof a temporary  situation, as Minister of Mines at  Victoria. . Suitable references from  the electors of one of tho provincial  ridings a sine ijua non.  TIIE TRUST IN ACTION.  The lookout for silver-lead mining is  just about as blue as they make it. Tn  order to control lhe output the price  of pig lead has been forced down bailie American Smelter Trust, till not  only in the Slocan and East Kootenay  but now m the famous Coeur d'Alene  camp producers are being "forced lo  the conclusion." as the Rossland Miner  says, "Unit it is more profitable for  ihem to leave their lead ores stored in  the bosom of the. e-trth rather than  mine undor existing conditions." If  there is in existence a belter illustration of the enormous and far reaching  power uf "harmonized interests,'1 Hie  Ili-:it.\i.i) lias not so far come across it.  And remember that it is nn instance  not of any casual or accidental effect  of the being of the trust. Jt is the  essential condition of its r.tison d'etre  that it shall be able to control the output. Unless it can do Lhat the trust is  useless to the men, who formed it.  And to control Lhe output on a large  scale there i.s only one way and Lhat is  to lower the price of tho product. The  trust can of course, in isolated instances, cease buying ore in particular  districts, as they have done in Kootenay. That course, however, would  lead to the erection of smelters uncnn  trolled tiy the trust, which would have  to be purchased to prevant them from  interfering with its aims. It can  obviously only be taken with safety in  the case of a new and isolated camp  such as Kootenay. of which the production is as yet comparatively  limitpd. The most sweeping]? efTecl-  i v_*_u_oLhod���������is-tO-rsdiicG-t-he��������� or-xoe���������oi���������ths-  product of their own .=m el turf, since  that course discourages the erection of  smeller.**- elsewhere, as w.;ll as de-  cr������ast*"> the output of the ore. Ir. may  reasonably be doubted whether even a  smelter und refinery entirely owned  and run by the Dominion Government  could successfully compete against a  un.rki't for lead manipulated by the  hostile smelling trust, across llu; line,  just a", itmay lie reasonably ijuesl ioncd  whether a transcontinental railway  .-ystcin, even if eiiLiivly rr.vn?d  and operate.1 by Lhe Dominion Government, could succn-ssfiilly com  pete for through trallie against Ibr  host ile combination of railway interests on the olher sidf. Government,  owned smellers and railways could he  run. no doubt, but roulil they, under  the circumstances, be made lo make  both ends icxeel?

As the local  paper of such an important Railway Oentre, its  attention has always been drawn to Railway  matters, and recently it has definitely taken up  the task of forming itself into a vehicle of railway  news in "which railway employes all over British  Golumbia and Alberta will find the news of the  Great Railway System to which they belong, and  of personal and tlie happening's affecting themselves and their fellow employes. THE HERALD  has long enjoyed the largest circulation of any  paper published in the district, which is now  rapidly increasing among*, the Railway Men East,  West and South.

Is equipped with the latest faces in type designs  and all work entrusted to. THE HERALD is  handled:by experienced workmen who thoroughly  understand the proper uso of the material at their  disposal.

On Monday afternoon the brotherhood ol' the Locomotive Eugineers of  the Pacilic division met in the"Auditorium at Spokane. State Labor  Commissioner, XV. Black, represented  tlie Governor of Washington, Grand  Chief P. JM. Arthur, of the B. L. E..  made an address, in the course ot  which he declared against the sympathetic strike.  Mayor Byrne, of Spokane, in wel-  coining thu chiet and brotherhood  said:  " Tt is with great pleasure that I  welcome you to this city. Your career  has been a remarkable one; to be at  the head of as powerful an organization as the Locomotive Engineers for  DO years is 11 very great honor, and no  ordinary man could fill that grand  position.  " Vou have been extremely conservative in the manner ir. which you  have handled the engineers' organization and you have made the organization of locomotive engineers highly  respected, c  "There is no class of men which  conies so intimately in touch with the  people as the engineers, as we have  constantly to entrust our lives to their  care.  " The ordinary citizen ;in his Pull  man or day couch   too   often  forgets  that his life and all he has are in the  hands or the man at Lhe throttle in the  engine.  A  HIGH flltADE MAX.  " Jt takes a high grade of man to l>=  an engineer; he must be temperate,  clear headed and courageous, and  anything or any legislation thil has a  tendency to shorten the hours or  increase the wages of engineers is to  our direct advantage. For if ��������� the  I'.'iilroau companies do not pay good  wages they cannot got a high grade of  men. and if the working hours are_  long, the 'engineers aie- liable to  become exhausted, both mentally and  physically, and in that way hundreds  of lives may be lost. "Many a' life has  been lost and much property, destroyed tlirough the unfortunate mistake of the railroad companies working  lhe men too long, "tnd as a consequence  t is to our direct advantage that* the  engineers are well organized, in order  that they may be enabled to get good  wages and short hours, which gives  the community a good class of men, so  that they will be mentally anil  physically capable of taking care of  the great trust which is put into thiir  hands when they are put in charge of  a passenger train. It" is also greatly  to the advantage "of capital that men  in lheir employ are well paid and -not  overworked."  CHIEF AKTHUR ON THE B. L. Kl   .  A grand ball was given  on .Tuesday .  evening   by, the   brotherhood   in  the  new Elks'Temple.  Speaking, to a. Chronicle reporter  Mr. Arthur said of the brotherhood :  "The real mission of the organization has been to upbuild the men  morally, socially and intellectually.'  We differ somewhat in our methods  from the so called trades unions. We  have endeavored for the past 38 years  to keep aloof from all entangling  alliances with other classes outside of  the railroad brotherhoods.

'  "Our relations at the present time  with the railroad companies of the  country are very pleasant. We have  no difficulty in meeting with them  when necessary to assist the men in  adjusting any grievance. We are  under obligations to, them for many  favors bestowed uponour organization from time to time. ���������  "We have been endeavoring for  many veal's to give the railroad companies reliable, trustworthy men.  We require them to be teinjicratc, of  moral character and have at least one  year's experience a.s engineers. Our  policy with other people in difficulty  or conflict with employers has lieen of  non-interference, strictly neutral.  "We favor ami always have favored,  arbitrating     tlicu    difficulties.        In  other   words,   we   favor    submitting  Ihi'se disputes to   arbitration   in   pre-*  furence    to     resorting     to     coercive  IIIC'IKUIL'S.

Not so. .McKinley will live through tho ages,���������Washington, Lincoln and McKinley���������the  three great presidents of this nation,  alike immortal.  L hear much of this crime that has  prosti'sttod Columbia in piteous grief  upon the bier of her honored son, hut,  good people, the lesson wo must read,  if we read aright, i.s not one of revenge. In a time like this when  hearts tire filled with grief and mouths  with curses for this pitiful creature  whose act has staggered the nation,  few among us see that iu his death  our'president held out a hand from  the mountain top that we might rise  superior to our griefs and passions.  Remember, his last words wore a  message from the cross, ''Thy will be  done."   '.  What a wonderful example has this  man's career been to the nation.  What a lesson in humility his public  and private life afford. .Follow liitn  through those desperate days early in  the Spanish war. Remember his  masterly handling of the tremendous  crisis through wliich tliis country  passed in a few years.  ���������  All of us know that throughout the  terrible .exactions of official life he  was ever the courtly gentleman, the  modest head of a great concern; seeking no selfish ' end,' always just,  moderate; the balance wheel of the  republic���������simply AVilliam McKinley,  tho American gentleman, our president. -���������  . All through this trying war time,  through peril from abroad and peril  as deadly from within, the president  remained as he had ever been, devoted  to that invalid wife whose delicate  health was his constant anxiety.  Tears spring unbidden to my eyes  when T reflect Unit hut a* short time  ago Mr. McKinley suit'ered death's  agonies in the illness of his wife, refused to give up when doctors con  ceded death inevitable, and went back  home happy as a schoolboy, despite  the cares of state, because the woman  he loved had been spared to him.  Thc thought chokes me that this  noble character, whose labors were  drawing to a close after he had  rendered services to this nation beyond the nation's power to estimate,  has been stricken down in full strength  of-b(idy-and-inindr^lirthe~very-zenith-  of his power���������standing on the summit  of tho country's prosperity in that  wonderful exposition���������tliere, where  he. more than any other American,  had the right fo stand proudly. There  came the end.  Great among the great was McKinley. In an awful moment like  that he experienced when shot, men  speak the thoughts that are within  thum.  "Do not let them hurl, him," grasped the president, and then fell, never  more to rise.  And since then, through the menial  and physical suffering he has endured,  not one querulous word. Think of it,  you people. No word of repining���������  not a complaint has he uttered���������not  one.  And at, last, wilh tho poor wife  weeping on bis cold hand, the president repeated our Savior's words :  "Thy will be done."   Then be died."'  Here is our lesson, The president  in hit. death has left this nation a  legacy no less valuable than is the  magiii/kcnt, example of his life. Let  us not talk of revenge. J.*"or me, I care  not what bccomi'B ofthe 'assassin.  Remove him-*-lake him away���������hide  him. M.'tke it u. misdemeanor toy a  newrtpapur to pj'in/L, hfe name���������do what  you will; but let x/i, obliterate this  man from our memories.
