PARTICULARLY SEVERE  ON  AN  ARCHY AND ANARCHISTS.  RECOMMENDATIONS.        f.  WASHINGTON,    December    3.���The  following  is  an  abstract  of  president  Roosevelt's message to congress:  "To the senate and house of representatives: The congress assembles  this year under the shadow of a great  calamity. On the 6th of September president McKinley was shot by an Auar-  - chist while attending the Pan-American exposition at Buffalo and died in  that city on the fourteenth day of that  month. Of the last seven elected presidents, he-is "the third who has been  murdered and tho bare recital of this  act is sufficient to justify grave alarm  among all loyal American citizens.  Moreover, tho circumstances of this, thc  "third assassination of an American president, has a peculiarly sinister significance ,. Both presidents Lincoln and  Garfield were killed by assassins of  types unfortunately not uncommon in*  history, president Lincoln falling avic-  . Urn to the terrible passions aroused by  four years of civil war and presideut  Garfield Lo the revengeful vanity of a  disappointed office seeker. President McKinley was killed by an utterly depraved criminal belonging to that" body  .., of criminals who object to all governments, good and bad alike, who are  against any form of popular liberty if  il is guaranteed by even the most just  and liberal laws, and who are as hostile to the upright exponent of a- free  people's sober will as to the tyrannical  and irresponsible despot."  TO SUPPRESS ANARCHY.  '- ��� President Roosevelt, after eulogizing  the late'president as a public man of  honesty and integrity, a gallant soldier  and a man broad of nature, takes r\p  the question of anarchy.. "The Anarchist is everywhere,", tho message says,  "not merely the enemy of system and  of progress, but tho deadly foe of liberty. If ever Anarchy is triumphant,  its triumph'"-will last but for one reel  moment to be succeeded by a great  gloomy night of despotism. No man or  body of men preaching Anarchistic doctrines should" be allowed at large any  more than if preaching the murder of  some specified private individual. Anarchist speeches, writings and meetings  are essentially seditious and treasonable. I earnestly recommend to congress that in the exercise of its wise  discretion it should take into consideration the coming into this country of  Anarchists or, persons professing principles hostile' to all government and  justifying the murder of those placed in  authority. Such individuals as those  who not long ago gathered in open  meeting to glorify the murder of king  Humbert of Italy perpetrate a crime and  tir^laws"^lrdffla^h"sure^their=arigorous*=  punishment. They and those like them  should be kept out of this country, and  if found, here they should be deported  to the country whence they came and  far-reaching provision should be made  for the punishment of those who stay.  No matter calls more urgently for. the  wisest thought of congress. Anarchy is  a crime against tho whole human race  and all mankind should be one against  the Anarchist. His crime' Should Vn  made an offense against the law of nations, like piracy and that form of man  stealing known ns the slave trade, for  it is of far blacker infamy than either.  It should be eo declared by treaties  amongst all civilized powers. Such  treaties would give to the federal government the power of dealing with the  crime."  PROSPERITY AND TRUSTS.  The message refers to the abounding  prosperity of the country and says ot  industrial conditions: "The tremendous and highly complex industrial development which went on with accelerated rapidity during the latter half  of the nineteenth century brings us  face to face at the beginning of the  twentieth with very serious social problems. The old laws and the old customs  which had almost the force of law were  once quite sufficient to regulate the accumulation and distribution of wealth.  Since the industrial changes which  have so enormously increased the productive power of mankind, they'are no  longer sufficient. It is not true that as  the rich have grown richer the poor  have grown poorer. On the contrary,  never before has the average man, the  wage worker, the fanner, the small  trader been so well off as in this country at the present time. There is. a widespread conviction in the minds of the  American people that the great corporations known as trusts are in certain  features and tendencies hurtful to the  general welfare. This springs from no  spirit of envy or uncharitableness, nor  lack of pride in the great industrial  achievements that have placed this  country at the head of the nations  struggling for commercial supremacy.  It does not rest upon a lack of intellectual appreciation of the necessity of  meeting changing anu changed conditions of trade with new methods, nor  upon ignorance of the fact that com- j  lunation ol capital in the effort to ao- j  ry\  complish great things is necessary  when the world's progress demands that  great things be done. It is based upon  sincere conviction that combination  and concentration should not be prohibited but supervised, and within  reasonable limits controlled, and in my  judgment, this conviction is right. Corporations engaged in interstate commerce should be regulated if they are  found to exercise a license working to  the public injury. The first essential in  determining how to deal with the great  industrial combinations is knowledge of  the facts, publicity. In the interest of  the public the government should have  the right to inspect and examine the  workings of great corporations engaged  in interstate business. Publicity is the  only sure remedy which we can hoav  invoke. What further remedies are  heeded in the way of governmental  regulation or taxation can only be determined after publicity has been given  by process of law and in course of administration. The first requisite is  knowledge, full and complete, knowledge which may be made, public to the  world. Other means of regulating trusts  are federal supervision over alL-corpor-  ations doing an interstate commerce  business and the creation of a cabinet  officer to bo known as secretary of commerce and industry."  The immediate enactment of the Chinese exclusion act is recommended.  LABOR UNIONS.  t Referring to the question of labor-  unions, president Roosevelt says: "The  chief factor in the success of each man,  wage worker, farmer and capitalist  alike, must be the sum total of his individual qualities and abilities. Second  to this come the power of union, combination or association! with othe^\j  Very great good has and will be accomplished by associations or unions  of wage workers whon managed with  forethought, and when they combine  insistence upon their own rights with  law-abiding respect for the rights of  others. The display of these qualities  in such bodies is a duty to the nation,  no less than to the associations themselves. Finally there must also be in  many cases action by the government in  order to safeguard their rights and interests of all."  IMMIGRATION LAWS. ,  "The present immigration laws," the  message continues, "are- unsatisfactory.  Anarchists and all persons of low moral  tendency should be excluded and careful educational and economic tests applied to all "immigrants."  TARIFF  AND  RECIPROCITY.  "Regarding tho tariff and reciprocity,  president   Roosevelt   says:    "There is  general   acquiescence   in   our   present  tariff system as a national policy. The  ilrst requisite to our prosperity is the  continuity   and   stability   of   this   eco^  noiiiic   policy.   Nothing  could   be  more  unwise   than   to   disturb   the   business  interests  of the country by a general  tariff change at this time. But apprehensive uncertainties are exactly what we  most wish  to avoid  in the interest r i  our commercial and material well being.  Our experience in the past has shown  chat   sweeping   revisions   of   the   tariff  are  apt  to  produce   conditions   closely  resembling panic in the business of the  world. Yet it is not only possible, but  eminently   desirable,   to   combine   with  the stability of our economic system a  supplementary system of reciprocal benefit and obligation with other nations.  Such .reciprocity   is   an   incidental   re-  =sult-=o��=the=&*Ei*n=establishmfint^anjilj)i'fiss=  ervation of our present economic policy.  It   was   specially   provided   for^ in   the  present tariff law. Reciprocity must be  treated as the handmaid of protection.  Our first duty is to. see that the protection granted by the tariff in every case  where  it is  needed is maintained  and  that reciprocity be sought for so far .as  it can be safely done without injury to  our home industries. Just how far to go  must  be  determined  according to  the  individual   cases,   remembering   always  that   every   application   of   our  tairff  policy  to meet  our  changing  national  needs must be conditioned upon the cardinal  fact that the duties must never  be  reduced   below  the point  that will  cover the difference between the labor  cost here and abroad.  The well-being  of the wage worker is a prime consideration of our entire policy of economic  legislation.  Subject to this proviso of  thc proper protection necessary to our  industrial well-being at home, the principle of reciprocity must command our  hearty support. Tho phenomenal growth  of   our   export  tjrade  emphasises  jilie*  urgency of the need for wider markets  snd for a liberal policy in dealing with  foreign   nations.   Whatever   is   merely  petty'or vexatious in the way of trade  restrictions should be avoided. The customers to whom we dispose of our surplus products in the long run, directly  or   indirectly,   purchase   those   surplus  products by giving us something in return. Their ability to purchase our products should, as far as possible, be secured by so arranging our tariff as to  enable us to take from them those products which we' can use without harm  to our own industries and labor or the  use of which will be or marked benefit  to   us.   It  is  most  important  that  we  should maintain the high level  of our  present    prosperity.     We    have    now  reached  the  Point  in  the  development  of our interests where we are not only  able  to  supply  our  own  markets,' but  to  produce  a constantly  growing surplus  for  which  we must  find  markets  abroad.   To  secure   these  markets,  we  can utilize existing duties in any case  where   they   are   no   longer   neded   for  the  purpose  of  protection,   or\ in   any  case where the article is not produced  here and the duty is no longer necessary  for revenue, as giving us something to  offer in exchange for what we ask. The  /  whicli are so desirable will naturally  be promoted by the course thus required by our own interests. Thc natural line of development for a policy  of reciprocity will be in connection with  those of our productions which no  longer require all of the support once  needed to establish them upon a'sound  basirv and with those others where,  either because of natural or economic  causes, we are beyond the reach of successful competition. I ask the attention of the senate to the reciprocity  treaties laid before it by my predecessor.  Legislation for the restoration to the  ecean of the American merchant marine  is urgent. Attention is called to the  fact that foreign vessels are subsidized,  but no specific recommendation is made  to congress for a subsidy law."  FINANCES. -  - Regarding the nation's finances the  message says: "The act of March 14th,  1900, intended unequivocally to establish gold as the standard mci.ey and to  maintain at a parity therewith all forms  of money medium in use with us, has  been (Shown to: be timely and judicious.  The pries of our government bonds in  the- world's markets when compared  with the . price of similar obligations  issued by other rations is a flattering  tribute to our "public credit. This condition it is evidently desirable to maintain:  "The wisdom of the interstate commerce law has been shown," the message continues, "but the means devised  for the enforcement of its provisions  are defective. The law should be amended."  '   AGRICULTURAL   DEPARTMENT.  Attention is called to the work of  the department of agriculture during  the past fifteen years. "It lias accomplished results of real value in upbuilding domestic and foreign trade. It has  gone into new fields until now it is in  touch with all sections of the country  and with the island groups that lately,  came under our jurisdiction whose people must look to agriculture as a livelihood. It is searching the world for  grains, grasses, fruits and vegetables  specially fitted for introduction into  localities in the several states and territories where they may. add materially  to our resources. By scientific attention  to soil, survey and possible new crops,  to breeding of new varieties of plants,  to experimental- specimens to' animate  industry and applied chemistry, very  practical aid has been given our farming  and stock-growing interests. The products of the farm have taken an unprecedented place in our export trade during the year that has just closed. Public opinion throughout the United*.States  has moved steadily toward a just appreciation of the value of forests, whether  planted or of natural growth.'The great  part played by them in the creation and  maintenance of national wealth is now  more fully realize- than ever before.  Co-operation in the preservation it tbe  forests and .the reclamation of the vast  expanse qf arid lands in the west is  now recommended."  NEW POSSESSIONS.  Considerable space is given to the  new island possessions of the United  States. "Porto Rico is, thriving as never  before. In Cuba such progress has been  made towards putting the independence  of the island upon a firm footing that  before the present session of congress  closes this will be an accomplished fact,  and a greater measure of material prosperity and government honesty and  efficiency has been attained in the Phil-  =i]Tpi*he-r'tiran=evei-=before=ih=its"history7ii=  Referring to the insurrection in the  Philippines, the message continues:  "The insurrection has become an affair  of local banditti and marauders, who  deserve no higher regard than the brigands of portions of the old world. Encouragement, direct or indirect, to these  insurrectionists stands on the same footing as encouragement to hoc-tile Indians in the days when we still had  Indian wars. Exactly .ts our aim is to  give to the Indian who remains peaceful the fullest and amplest consideration, but r.o have it understood that we  will show no weakness If he goes on the  war-pa*ih, so we must make it evident,  unless we are false to out traditions  and to the demands of civilization and  humanity, that while wc will do everything in our power for the Filipino who  is peaceful, we will take the sternest  measures with the Filipino who follows the path of tho insurrecto and  ladrono. The highest praises are due  tc the large number of the natives of  the islands for their steadfast loyalty.  The Macabees have been conspicuous  for their courage and devotion to the  iiag. I recommend that the secretary  of war be empowered to take some systematic action in thc way of aiding  those of these men who were crippled  in the service and the families of those  %vho were killed. The time has come  when there should be additional legislation for the Philippines. Nothing better can b". done for the islands than lo  introduce neutral enterprises. Nothing  would benefit them so much as throwing them upon industrial development.  The connection between idle-moss and  mischief is proverbial and tbe opportunity to do remunerative work is one  of the surest preventives of war. Of  course, no business man will go into  the Philippines unless it is to his interest to do ko; and it is immensely to the  interest of the islands that he should  go in. It is necessary that congress  should pass laws by which the resources  of the islands can be developed, so that  franchises (for limited terms of years)  can be granted to companies doing business in them and every encouragement  be given to the incoming of business  men of every kind."  OCEAN  CABLES.  The message continues:  "I call your  cordial  relations   with   other   nations 1 attention most earnestly to the crying  need of a cable to Hawaii and the Philippines and to points in Asia. Ws  should not defer a day longer than necessary the construction of such cables.  It is demanded not merely for commercial but for political and military considerations. Either the congress should  immediately provide for the construction of a government cable, or else an  arrangement should be made by which  like advantages to those accruing from  a government cable may be secured by  contract .with a private company."  - v'ISTHMIAN CANAL7. './,;���>  "No single great material work which  remains to be undertaken on this continent is of such consequence to the  American people as the building of a  canal across the isthmus connecting  North and South America. Its importance to > the nation is by no means limited merely to -its material effect upon  oui' business prosperity, and yet with;  the view to'these effects alone it would  be to the last degree important to us  immediately to begin. While its beneficial effects ..would perhaps . be most  marked upon the Pacific coast and the  gulf and south Atlantic states, it would!  also: greatly benefit other sections.���*, It  is emphatically; a work which is for the.  interest, of the entire country to begin  and complete as soon as possible. It is  one of those great works which only a  great .nation can undertake with prospects of success and which .when done  are not only permanent assets in the  nation's material interests, but standing  monuments to its constructible ability.  I am glad to be able to announce to you  that our negotiations on this subject  with Great Britain, conducted on both  sides in a spirit of friendliness and mutual good will and respect, have resulted  in my being able to lay be&re the senate a treaty which if ratified will enable  us to begin preparations for an isthmian canal at any time,-^ and which  guarantees to this nation every right  that is asked in connection with the  canal. In this treaty^ the old Clayton-  Bulwer treaty, so long recognized as inadequate to supply the basis for the construction and maintenance bf a necessarily American ship canal, is abrogated.  It specifically provides that the United  States alone shall do the work of building and assume, the responsibility of  safeguarding the canal and shall regulate its neutral use by all ��� nations - on  terms of equality without the guarantee  of interference of any outside nation  from any quarter." The signed treaty  will. at once be laid before the senate  and if approved the congress can then  proceed to give' effect to the advantages  it secures us by providing for the building of the canal.'  DESIRABILITY OF PEACE.  "The tru.e-aim of every, great nd free  people should be selfrespect in pea'ce  and this nation most "earnestly desires  sincere and cordial .friendship with all  others. Over the entire world of recent  years wars between the great, civilized  powers have become less frequent;  wars with barbarous or semi-barbarous  people come in an entirely different  category, being merely almost regrettable but necessary international police  duty which must be performed for the  sake of the welfare of mankind. Peace  can only be kept with certainty where  both sides wish to keep it; but more  and more the civilized peoples are realizing the wicked folly of war and are  attaining that condition of just and intelligent regard for the rights of others  which will in the end, as we hope and  believe, make world-wide peace possible. The peace conference at The  Hague gav'e us definite expression to  this hope and belief and marked a stride  Joward^ their attainment This same  ~peace^conference���acquiesced���in==fOur=  statement of the Monroe doctrine as  compatible with the purposes and aims  of the conference. The Monroe doctrine  should be the cardinal feature of the  foreign policy of all nations of the two  Americas, as it is of the United States.  Just seventy-eight years have passed  since president Monroe in his annual  message announced that "the American  continents are henceforth not to be considered as subjects for future colonization by any European power." In other  words the Monroe doctrine is a declaration that there must be no territorial aggrandizement by any non-American  power at the expense of any American  power on American soil. It is in no  wise intended as hostile to any nation  in the old world. Still less is it intended to give cover to any aggression by  one new world power at the expense of  any other. It is simply a step and a  long step toward assuring the universal  peace of the world by securing the possibility of permanent peace on this  hemisphere. During the past century  other influences have established the  permanence and Independence of the  smaller states of Europe. Through the  Monroe doctrine we hope to be able to  safeguard like independence and secure  like permanence for the lesser among  the new world nations. This doctrine  has nothing to do with thc commercial  relations of any American power, save  that in truth it allows each of them to  form such as it desires. In other words,  it is really a guarantee of the commercial independence of the Americans.  We do not ask under this doctrine for  any exclusive commercial dealings with  any other American state. We do not  guarantee any state against punishment  if it misconducts itself, provided that  punishment does not take the form of  the acquisition of territory by any non-  American power. Our attitude in Cuba  is a sufficient guaranty of our good  faith. We have not the slightest desire  to secure any territory at the expense  of any of our neighbors. We wish to  work with them hand in hand so that  all of us may bo uplifted together, and  we rejoice over the goon fortune of any  of them. We gladly hail their material  prosperity and political stability and  are concerned and alarmed if any of  them fall into industrial or political  chaos. We do not wish to see any old  world military power grow up on this  continent, or be compelled to become a  military power ourselves.    The people  of America can prosper hest if left to  work out their own salvation in their  own way."  NAVY REQUIREMENTS.-  "The work of upbuilding the navy  must be steadily continued. No one  point of our policy, foreign or domestic,  is more important than this to the honor  and martial welfare and above all to the  peace of our nation in the future.  Whether we desire it or not, we must  henceforth recognize that we have international duties no less than international rights. Even if pur flag were  hauled down in the Philippines and  Porto Rico, even if we decided not to  build the isthmian ctnal, we should  need a thoroughly trained" navy of adequate size, or else % be prepared definitely and "for all time to abandon the  idea,that our nation is among those  whose sons go down to the sea in  ships. Unless our commerce is always  to be carried -in foreign bottoms we  inust have war craft to protect it. Our  people intend to abide by. the Monroe  doctrine and to insist upon it as tne only  sure means of securing the peace of the  western hemisphere. The navy "offers;  us the only means of making our insistence upon the Monroe doctrine anything but a subject of derision to whatever nation chooses to disregard it.*; We  desire the peace which comes as; of  right to the just man armed; not the  peace granted on terms of ignominy to  the craven and the weakling. Four  thousand additional ' seamen and one  thousand additional marines should be  provided, and an increase in the officers  provided. It is not necessary to increase  our army beyond its presentsize at this  time, but it is necessary to keep it at its  highest point of efficiency. The .individual units who as officers and enlisted  . men compose this army, ��� are, we have  good reason to believe, at least as efficient as those of any other army, in the  entire world. It is our duty to see that  their training is of a kind to insure the  highest possible expression of power of  the units when acting in combination.  THE INDIAN.  ��� "In my judgment the time has arrived  when we should definitely make up our,  minds to recognize the' Indian as an  individual and not as a member, of a  tribe. The general allotment act is a  mighty. pulverizing engine to break up  the tribal mass. It acts directly, upon  the family and the individual. Under  its provisions some sixty thousand Indians - have already become citizens ofthe United States. We should now,  break up the tribal funds, doing for  them what allotment does for the tribal  lands; that is, they should be divided  into individual holdings. A stop should  be put upon the indiscriminate permission to Indians to lease their allotments.  The effort should be steadily to * make  the Indian .work like any other man on  his own ground. -The marriage laws of  the Indians should be made the same as  those of the whites."  President    Roosevelt    endorses    the'  Charleston and the St. Louis expositions  and praises the work done by the Pan-  American exposition at Buffalo.   '-  CHINESE MATTERS..  Continuing, the message says: "Owing to the rapid growth of our power  and our interests on the Pacific, whatever happens in China must be of the  keenest national concern to us. The  general terms of the setlement of the  questions growing out of the anti-foreign uprisings in China of 1900 having  been framed in a joint note addressed  to China by the representatives of the  injured powers in December last, were  promptly accepted by the Chinese government. After protracted conferences  the plenipotentiaries of the several  powers were able to sign a final pro-  ^tocol^with-_the_Chinese,pjejUpotentig1'ie!l  on the 7th day of last September setting forth the measures taken by China  in compliance with the demands of the  joint note and expressing their satisfaction therewith. It will be laid before the congress with a report of the  plenipotentiary on behalf of the United  States, William Woodville Rockhill. to  whom high praise is due for the tact,  good judgment and energy he has displayed iri performing an exceptionally  difficult and delicate task. The agreement reached disposed in a manner satisfactory to the powers of various  grounds of complaint and will contribute materially to better future relations between China and the powers.  Reparation has been mado by China for  the murder of foreigners during the uprising, and punishment has been inflicted on the officials, however high in  rank, recognized as responsible for having participated in the outbreak. Official examinations have been forbidden  for a period of five years in all cities  in which foreigners have been murdered or cruelly treated and edicts have  been issued making all officials directly  responsible for the future safety of foreigners and for the suppression of violence against them. Provisions have  been made for insuring the future safety  of the foreign representatives in Pekin  by setting aside for tueir exclusive use  a quarter of the city which the powers  can make defensible and in which they  can, if necessary, maintain permanent  military guards, by dismantling the military works between the capital and the  sea, and by allowing the temporary  maintenance of foreign military posts  along this line. An edict has been issued by the emperor of China prohibiting for two years the importation of  arms and ammunition into China. China  has agreed to pay adequate indemnities  to the states, societies and Individuals  for the losses sustained by them and for  the expenses of the military expeditions  sent by the various powers to protect  life and restore order. Under the provisions of the joint note of December.  1900. China has agreed to revise the  treaties of commerce nnd navigation and  to take such other steps for the purposo  of facilitating foreign trade as the foreign ^powers may decide to be needed.  The "Chinese government has agreed to  participate financially in the work of  bettering the water approaches to  Shanghai and to Tien Tsin, the centers  of foreign trade in central and northern  China, and an international conservancy  board, in which the Chinese government  Is largely represented, has been provided  for the improvement of tho Shanghai  rivor and the control of its navigation.  In the same line of commercial advantages a revision of the present tariff on  imports has been assented to for the  purpose of substituting specific for ad  valorem duties and an expert has been  sent abroad on the part of the United  States to assist in this work. A list of  articles to remain free of duty, including flour, cereals and rice, gold and silver  coins and silver bullion has also been  .agreed upon in the settlement. During  these troubles our government has unswervingly advocated moderation and  has materially aided in bringing about  an adjustment which tends to enhance  the welfare of China and to lead to a  more beneficial intercourse between the  empire and the modern world; while in  the critical period of revolt and massacre we did our full share in safeguarding life and property, restoring order  and vindicating the national interest  and honor. It behooves us to continue  in these paths, doing what is in our  power to foster feelings of good will and  leaving no effort untried to work out  the great policy of full and fair intercourse between China and the nations,  on a footing of equal rights and advantages to all. We advocated the "open  door" with all that it implies, not  merely the procurement of enlarged  commercial operations on the coasts,  but access to the interior by waterways  with which China has been so extraordinarily favored. Only by bringing the  people of China into peaceful and  friendly community of trade with all  the peoples of the earth can the work  now auspiciously begun be carried to  fruition. In the attainment of this  purpose we necessarily claim parity of  treatment, under the conventions,  throughout the empire for our trade and  our citizens with those of all "other  powers."  The message concludes: "The death  of queen Victoria caused the people of  the United States deep and heartfelt  sorrow, to which the government gave  full expression. When president McKinley died, our nation in turn received  from every quarter of the British empire expressions of grief and sympathy  no less sincere.  - "Indeed from every quarter of the civilized world we received at the time of  the president's death, assurances of  such grief and regard as to touch the  hearts of" our people. In the midst of  our affliction we reverently thank the  Almighty that we are at peace with the  nations of mankind, and we firmly intend that our policy shall be such as to  continue unbroken these international  relations of respect and good will."  IT WILL BE A FINISH FIGHT  PRICE OF SILVER  There Will Be No Lack of Funds.  " James Wilks, vice-president of the  Western Federation of Miners, John  Keiley and James A. Baker, members  of the executive board for districts  Nos. 2 and 6, respectively, arrived a few  days ago from Denver, Colorado, in  which city the headquarters of the Federation are located. It is a well-known  fact that the full executive board of the  Federation has been in session recently  for about two weeks, and also that one  of the most important questions that  came up for consideration was the  strike situation at Rossland and North-  port. The above-named gentlemen  upon being pressed for an interview  ^rade=*tlie=following-=joint=statement:=  The strike situation at Northport  and Rossland has been presented to the  executive board, and has been fully considered in all its details by that body.  The Federation is fully aware of and  highly appreciates the splendid stand  maintained by the members of Rossland  and Northport unions in this strike up  to the present time, and they can depend upon every assistance, financial  and otherwise "being afforded them . to  conduct their campaign to a satisfactory outcome. We have carefully gone  over the whole situation with the officials of the union and have made all  necessary plans and preparations to  continue the fight indefinitely until  justice is done, and the union laborers  at Rossland receive $3 per day, the  same rate of wages that Is paid in every  other camp in Kootonay and Boundary.  We have no desire to assume an air of  bravado upon this matter, but we wish  to say with the strongest possible em-  for an indefinite period, and our mem-  cial position to maintain the struggle  for an indefinite period, tnd our members being so firmly Impressed with tho  justice of their demands, and being  fully satisfied that every honest and unbiased mind that is to any extent familiar with the situation will acknowledge their right to receive the wages  they ask for, they are determined to  stay with the fight until a satisfactory  adjustment is effected. In this position  they will be supported regardless of  expense to the fullest extent of their  power by the Western Federation of  Miners. VT*  Any advantage which the company  console themselves with, in the fact  that they have non-union mon in their  employ at present, we know to be more  fancied than real. We are satisfied that  the companies will never accomplish  results satisfactory to themselves and  their shareholders with incompetent,  non-union men. The mine managers  know just_as well as we do that they  will not secure a competent class. of  mine and smelter workmen so long as  a strike is on at their works. They also  know that as soon as the strike is declared off, they will not experience the  slightest difficulty in securing as competent a class of workmen as can be  found.  The strike will he declared off when  the reasonable requests of the unions  are acceded to, hut not before.  AND   BAD  ROADS   STOPS  ORE SHIPMENTS ,  FROM TEE ARLINGTON TEMPORARILY-NO REDUCTION IN  FORGE INTENDED.  J. Frank Collom of the Arlington and  Speculator mines arrived in Nelson  yesterday on legal business. Mr. Col-'  lorn says that the road to the Arlington  has been in such a shape for the past  three weeks that "the hauling of .ore  over it has been out of the question.-  This, however, is not occasioning the.  management of the Arlington any concern, as with silver as weak as it is  shipping is no very great object, especially in view of the fact that an- ad-  vance in price may be expected with,  the beginning, of; the new year. "With  ore of the grade of tue Arlington product an advance bf one cent an ounce  in the price of silver means at least  ?20 to the car, and it therefore becomes ,  an object to the company to hold its ���  output when there is_ a chance of tho *  market making four or five cents in the  price of silver. Personally Mr. collom. -  says he is in favor of holding-the output of the Arlington until January "and"  the advisability of following such a  course will be considered by the "com--  pany. If this course is adopted it will  not make very, much difference witB.  respect to the force' employed at the  mine, as the-development work will be  kept well advanced so that everyuadvan-  tage could be taken of an advance in the  price of silver.' The*-*'force at the'mine  now numbers about eighty men" and  this number will be kept at work all  winter. On the Speculator mine the  force consists of about "twenty men.  This number will not be increased until spring, when surface work can be  resumed. The .property is developing  well, but the work done upon it so far  has been largely of an exploratory nature with a view to determining ^.the  best manner in which to work the "group.  From such work as has- been done Mr.  Collom is of the opinion that the pro-,  perty will eventually be worked.'through"'  a shaft, a start upon which will be made  in the spring. Connection was made  ou Friday last between the base line  tunnel which is being driven on the  group and the upper workings. The'  connection was made some 700 feet in  from the mouth of the tunnel and tapped a column of water 90 feet' hicrh  which was standing in a shaft, in addition to a large body of water in  thc 300 loot drift above. The miners  had an idea that they were about to  make the connection and they got out  to the mouth of the base tunnel before  the last blast was set off and thus got  out of harm's way. Although Mr. Collom is best known by reason of his connection with the Arlington and Speculator properties, he has greater claims  to prominence in connection with the  jjevelopment__of_J*he  mineral  resources.

Although every dollar that those interested put into this enterprise was lost,  Mr. Collom is still of the opinion that  the chief cause, for failure was the fact  that the enterprise of operating the  smelter at Pilot Bay was several years  ahead of tho times. Had the business  been properly handled Mr...Collom.,is.of  the opinion that the promoters of the  ;en;terpriso could have controlled thea  smelting industry of the province and  have forced railways to it instead of  being sidetracked as has since been tho  case. When the smelter at Pilot Bay '  was first projected it was the opinion of  president Van I-Iorne oi the Canadian  Pacific railway that the big Canadian  road would build through to Kootenay  lako via Crawford Bay. The possibilities of the Crow's Nest coal fields* in  the way of cheap fuel were known-at  this time so that the smelter seemed  assured of transportation facilities as  well as a cheap fuel supply. The construction of this piece of railway from  Marysville in East Kootenay to Kootenay lake via Crawford creek is now-  regarded as among the probabilities for  the immediate future, but the mine on  which the smelter depended almost  wholly was demonstrated to be of little value, and the smelter stands as a,  monument to the pluck of the men who  assumed they could not only mine and  smelt the load ores of Kootenay, but  work np the lead into commercial pro- .  ducts as we!!.  Franklin   Farrell,   who   purchased   a  fourth interest in the mine, was interested in the smelter: project which at .  first was a separate concern from the  Blue Bell.  Farrell  spent about $fi0.0*vy   -  on the erection of the plant before he  lost faith in the scheme and quit. Th".  mine without the  smelter was of little value and it was at this stage that   "  Mr. Coilom was set at work to form a  company    to    carry    the    enterprise  through. A deal was made with Farrell  by which he was given about 50 cents  on the dollar for what he had sunk in.  smelter    construction    and     sufficient  [Continued on Fourth Page.]     J .  ���J^"*^*******-*^*****^^  ���.ttW-WW-WXfc^WWMffww^VWitt*,  IUW.V-U-*-** tt-w-n'tuSfc^Kuvti^ _-.tf> ,  ,._.-*. i-;-\-C.

He  (the minister of education) then assured  the member   for   Nelson   that   Nelson'  would   receive  fair treatment,  and  on'  that understanding work on' the high  school   building   was   commenced,   the  city council, to their credit, agreeing to.  bear half the cost of the building.   The'  city council of Rossland absolutely refused to bear any share,of the cost of  the new school building at that place,'  and   the   minister   of   education,' after,  making a trip to Rossland,', agreed to  pay  the   entire  cost   of  a  new frame  building, estimated to cost $10,000.   The  member  for  Nelson   characterized  the  action of the minister of education as  unfair to Nelson, a city that had will-,  ingly undertaken to bear a share of the  cost of a new building, 'and has since  insisted that Nelson be'.treated". as other  cities have been treated.   It is true, the  present  member  for 'Nelson 'may''not  have as much influence with the goV7  ernment as mayor Fletcher has; but if  the latter has so much influence with  the  government,  why has" he  not secured title for the city to the site for  the power station on Kootenay river?

At the last meeting of thc,  council he Is reported as having said:  " The present member for Nelson in the  "local house had positively refused to  " ask, for it.    (Meaning an  appropriation for school purposes for Nelson).  "He had said that the city should not  " be a mendicant in such a matter, but  "should pay its way."   When the scnool  hill  was   up  for  consideration   in   the*  house last spring, the member for Nelson said all municipalities, city as well  as   district,   should   take  care  of  their  own public schools, leaving to the province-the care ,of schools in unorganized  districts.    This  view  was  opposed   by  members   from   New   Westminster   district,  from  Vancouver,  and  from  Victoria.    They  all   claimed   their   taxes  were so high that they could not stand  any   additional   burden.    The   bill   as  passed was, in a measure, a compromise.  Cities were divided  into three classes,  each class getting so much per capita  based on the average annual attendance.  The law goes into effect on January 1st  next.      Regarding    appropriations    for  school  buildings  for  the  current year,  a list of the sums set apart for the cities  in Kootenay was made up by the superintendent of education.    On that list  Rossland- was down for ?7500 and Nelson for ?5000. The member for Nelson  insisted that the two cities should be  placed on an equal footing, and he was  told .that the reason Rossland was given  $7500 was because her board of school  trustees   had asked   for  $15,000.    The  .minister.of. education yras.told that the  peojjiieYk Wetepu werg aot angndMaitfsi   provrlatiooa for wbooj Jjuildinga.  jre_-(  The   four   money   by-laws   tne   city-  council have under consideration should  be treated on their merits.    The first  is  one   for  $150,000,  the  money  to   be  used in installing an up-to-date power  plant on Kootenay river.    It will  not  be for one moment argued that the present council can spend the money even  if it is voted, .but the passage of the by-law will mean that the people of .Nelson  are in earnest on a question that is of  vital importance to the city.    The city  is in need of additional power to operate its electric lighting plant, and the  power must be either .installed by the  city or purchased from private parties.  The installation .of a plant by,the city  means that the city will take care of its  own business, which  it is amply able  to do;  and it also means that the city  will be in a position to offer aid to existing   industries    (like   the   tramway  ���companyiT-or-inducements-to-expected"  industries,  like the refinery.    Without  such a plant, the city can neither aid  tho tramway nor induce any other industry' to   locate  here  without  voting  them direct, cash   subsidies,   and   how  long could the city keep on voting cash  subsidies?    The  second   by-law  is   for  $5000, the money to be used in installing  a fire-alarm   system.    As   the   present  council cannot possibly install the system,  would  it not bo  fairer to  allow  their -successors a free hand not only  in installing the system, but providing  ways and means, for paying for it?   The  noxt councii may be able to install a  fire-alarm system without borrowing a  dollar, and if they can they should be  allowed   that   privilege,   for   borrowing  money on 20-year debentures means the  payment of a large sum-in interest, and  it is not  good  policy  to pay   interest  v/h^n such   payments   can  be  avoided.  Thc above argument also holds good as  to the by-law for borrowing $5000 for  an isolation hospital.    Such a building  may be needed, but as the present council  can  neither erect the building nor  sell the debentures, the erection of the  building and   procuring   the   ways   and  means for doing it   shouM   be left   to  next year's council.   No one who wants  to see the city advance would willingly  see oiir public schools in anyway handicapped.   If money is required for the  erection of buildings and for the maintenance of schools   it should   be   procured, . but i6   it   advisable   to, .borrow  $10,000 for that purpose at this, time?  Little heed should be paid to any statement made  by mayor Fletcher,  either  as an official or as an individual.    He  makes statements merely to justify his  actions,  and his actions are so inconsistent that   his   statements   are   absolutely worthless as a basis for argument. No good reason can be advanced  by the provincial government for treating Nelson unfairly in the way ot api-  s.on did as she agreed to do, which is to  her credit; and if there were more  cities in the province like her, the annual deficit of the provincial government would be smaller. But the government has not said they would not. increase Nelson's appropriation for the  high school building, and it0 is more  than likely that they will increase it to  at least the proportions received by  Rossland. If this is done, there will be  no need of borrowing $10,000 or any  other amount for school purposes this  year, at least. The question of these  four by-laws should be considered by  the property-owners on their individual  merits, and not because they are favored  by mayor Fletcher and alderman Selous,  or because they are opposed by alderman Irving and alderman Madden.  The decision of the Western Federation of Miners to stand by tlie Rossland  Miners' Union and the Northport Smelt-  erfnen's Union was the only one that  the Federation could take. If the Federation is one in which mine workers  have confidence, that confidence can only  be   maintained by the parent   organization standing behind the branch organizations when they are'in difficulties in  which they are in the right. The management of the Northport smelter declared war against their employees because they were members of the union,  and for rib other reason. The men were  doing   their   work   exceptionally   well,  and there was no disputes as to wages  or hours. No self-respecting man will  allow another to dictate to him as to  his individual rights or privileges. At  Rossland, tlie present'.strike is the' outcome of a system of "nagging" resorted  to by the management of the Le Roi  and War Eagle mines. The men came  to  the  conclusion  that  trie  "nagging"  could only be stopped by a full recognition,of the union and the payment'of  the' scale "of wages paia at every other  camp in Kootenay and Yale. The Le Roi  mine  has  started0 work  with  the  aid  of strike-breakers imported from Missouri, Colorado, and California;-but the  men who  brought on the strike have  had to go, and Bernard ^McDonald, and  Bela Kadish are no  longer  managers  at Rossland arid Northport.. .The Federation  is strong   in  numbers,  having  branch   organizations  in   every  metalliferous mining camp" between the Mississippi river and the. Pacific ocean.   Its  oflicers  have  the  experience  that -can  only be gained in trouble.    The troublous times in the Coeiir d'Al'eiies and in  Colorado have taught them useful lessons. They know that force will be met  by   force���riot   the   force "of .the   men  with whom they are at^ difference,' but  the   force   of ,the   government.    They,  know, that fights, can' only be won by  using public-opinion as weapons;  and  they know that tliey can only get the  aid of, .public opinion when their cause'  is just.     Their   opponents   have    the  active" sympathy and support of. all the  great mining companies and their numerous allies.   It is a fight between mine  managers and mine workers, in which  the latter have only tlie advantage rof  numbers.   The mine managers have the  spending of money that is the property  of shareholders who seldom know the  true inwardness of the differences that  i i.i  result   in   strikes   and   lockouts.    The  mine-workers   spend   the   money   that  ^���^-^^^-^'AsS^^^^-^^S^^^^ m &��L:&��L&ZL��__:&0&S___:SLsLt_t:S_ztlt_il_i:^'  fS^'00'00^S'00'00'000^^*00^^r^i^^r^.^s.r^ \\\ ^^^^^^^^t^^^.^^^^^-S^  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  ON THURSDAY OF  THIS WEEK WE WILL  SELL THE BALANCE  OF OUE STOCK OF  LADIES' MANTLES AND COSTUMES  torn  to  to  to  to  to  to  AND CHILDREN'S COATS AT HALF PRICE   $  m  lif\ WE WILL ALSO SHOW EXCEPTIONAL BARGAINS IN LADIES' FLANELETTE-WEAR j$\  to fl\  fj\ GOODS   AND  PRICES  TO SUIT ALL fo  to - to  to   _ to  to ~~ ~ _ _     ZYYY~ ~YY " ~  ���Mj    IjIJ   ^  ^0h0 ^0   ^B0   *  36 Bakep Street, Nelson.  to  VL  to  ^'���&'^ii^&'.&Y^'^'&'^'^'&'&'^'0*'^'0i*'4��' v|v -'^���^'^'^������^���^'^���^������^���^���'^���j��'^'^.^^>*^,>^*  'V*^^���^*SJ^'-Sf������SJ'i^r-��^ *^k --S^-55 ���'5 ���^������8f' *22r:*^^*��^  |f# ^\S'^^fS'00^fS'00'00'0^'00'00'im0'00^00^^*S0^^^*^'^  Frcm this, it would seem that tioiih the  mine-owners and the mine workers are  up a&ainst the 'Missourians. The Missouri soft-lead ihine-owners are unwilling to curtail their output in order, to  restore normal conditions, because they  are making money through conditions  being abnorrnal. The Missouri mine-  workers hire themselves out as strikebreakers'in our mines, rather than see  fellow riiine-work'ers get the rate of  wages' that prevail'throughout the silver-lead mining districts of British Columbia. The mine-owners and -mine-  workers should .form an" organization  to fight the Missourians. .  Had a Thrilling Experience.  Thomas Cottrell Collins, the traveling agent of The Tribune," has been long  in Kootenay. In fact-he traded with the  Indians  years  before  "Charlie" Oleson  they themselves earn. It is often an  unequal contest; hut once such contests are brought on, there appears to  be only one way in this country to  settle them, and that method will be  resorted to to settle the strikes at  Rossland and Northport. The mine-  workers and smeltermen will win in  the end, because they have right on  their side.  The reports of the conference that is  now being held in New York between  the American Smelting & Refining Company and the lead miners indicate that  there is  little likelihood  of an agreement that will result in bringing about  better  conditions   for   the   silver-lead  miners  of either the United States or  British Columbia.   The former are now  getting  four  cents  a pound  for their  lead and the latter aro getting $1.40 a  hundred.    The former are getting four  cents because the American Smelting &  Refining   Company   have   been   maintaining the market, but they can do so  no longer with a surplus on hand that  is estimated at from   40,000   to   50,000  tons. A cut In the price of lead would  mean a heavy loss to them, and they are  trying to get the mine owners to agree  to   curtail   their   output.   The   western  mine owners are willing to do this, but  the  soft lead  miners  of  Missouri  are  unwilling.   They   can   probably   make  more money   with   lead   at   two   cents  than   the  western   silver-lead   mintl^j.  can. at four  cents,  and '��� knbwirig that  they have .the "cinch" they propose, to  keep it. The American Smelting <& Refining Company say they will stop purchasing American ores altogether and  get a supply from the silver-lead mitts  of  British  Columbia.   This  threat  will  probably bring the Couer d'Alene mine-  owners  to  terms,   and  cause  them  to  curtail their output until such tint, is  the Airvericain Smelting & Reli.t.ng Ci'in-  settled at Ainsworth. ."Tom" never goes  anywhere without haying a'hair-breadth  escape or a, thrilling .experience; arid  his recent trip through the,Slo'can was  not;,an exception. Nearly all the mines  in the Slocan are reached by trairiways,  some of ��� them aerial rope arid others  surface. Their use is not generally all-  lowed because of the danger,.but men  will risk-the danger rather, than take  the time .to walk any where from a mile  to five miles up a steep trail. VTom" has  faced dangers ever-since he left Nort|i  Carolina, and he^ would rather ride  four miles in a tram'-bucket-than walk  half a" mile on a plank sidewalk. Hp  was at the Ivanhoe mill, and he wanted  tb get to the mine without walking. The  boys gave him peririissibri to take, a  seat in a bucket, and, phoned to th'e  boys at the upper end to.be ready to receive a newspaperman.. The r bucket  moved slo.wly along until,it got, right  -over-a7200-root-gorgerwhere-it-stoppe<*Jr  and. "Tom" began to wonder if ,he was  hung up for the day, which .was rather  a cold one. After a stop of, about tten  minutes the-bucket began to move along  again, and kept moving right along until it got within a thousand feet of the  mine, where it stopped the instant the  whistle blew for dinner. It stopped, of  course, between two towers, and "Tom-"  yelled to the man in charge to move it  up to a tower. This the tram man did,  but he didn't stop it until it liad passefl  tlie tower by six or seven feet, just far  enough to make "Tom" go hand-overhand and spoil a new pair, of buck driving gloves to reach it. Arrived at the  mine, "Tom" was creeted by; a nuriiber  of the boys who knew him. and who  evidently knew who was in the bucket  all the time. Thc joke had to go, because  "Tom"  is  a  practical joker himself. .  ARCHITECTS.  A. C. EWAKT.���ARCHITECT, ROOM 3,  Aberdeen Block, Baker Street, Nelsoa.  DRAYAGE.

WASHINGTON, December 3.���The  senate listened to the first message of  president Roosevelt today and adopted  a resolution directing the appointment  of a committee to co-oyerate with a like  ���-��� committee from -the house to consider  by -what token of respect and affac-  tion congress might express the sorrow  of the nation upon the. tragic death of  the late president McKinley. The message was delivered soon after the senate met. The reading occupied nearly  two and a half haurs and was listened  to with marked respect by the senators.  The first portion relating to the Buffalo tragedy excited, the most profound  interest in the senate. At the conclusion of the reading of the message Mr.  " Foraker, senior senator from Ohio, presented the McKinley resolution and as  a further mark of respect, the senate  adjourned.  Not in many years have the members'  of the house listened with such rapt  attention to the reading of the annual  message of a president of the United  States as they did today to the reading of the first' message of president  Roosevelt. Every word was followed intently from the announcement of the  tragic death of president McKinley,  the opening sentence, to the expression  of the closing wish that our relations  with the world would continue peaceful.  The reading occupied two hours, hut  not over a dozen members left their  seats until it was concluded. Several  times there was applause and at' the  conclusion there was an enthusiastic  demonstration on the Republican side.  On motion of Mr. Grosvenor (Ohio)  that portion of the message relating to  the death of the'late president was referred to a committee to consist of one  member from each state to join a similar committee pf the senate to consider  and report by what token of- respect  and affection it may bo proper for congress to express the deep sensibility of  the nation on "the tragic death of the  ' late president. The speaker apnointprl  a committee headed by Mr. Grosvenor,  and then as a further mark of respect  the house adjourned.  The Socialists Capture Northport  NORTHPORT,, December 3.���[Special to The Tribune.]���Today's municipal election resulted in the election of the  following members of the Socialistic  ticket: Mayor, George Stillinger; coun-  cilman-at-large, Fred Blair; councilman  for two years, Henry "C. Rugaber and  George Foster; city clerk, Henry Charles  Thompson; city treasurer, Floyd C.  Smith; health officer, John R. Connolly.  Of-the citizen's . nominees Justin Baird  was elected councilman-foi���two*=yearsi  and John A. Kellogg, city attorney. The  Socialist victory is due to the clever  work of John G. Harkness, who organized the Socialists here this summer.  He secured the registration of every  Socialist, and yet. worked so quietly  that the nomination of the Socialist  ticket after the close of registration  came as a complete surprise to the old  parties. It is probable that the showing  made by the Socialists today will give  them considerable prominence in Stevens county politics next year.  Greenwood Local News.  GREENWOOD, December 3.���[Special to The Tribune.]���When riding between the town of Greenwood and the  smelter' this evening, J. L. Parker, the  mine manager at Phoenix, got a mud  bath. Heavy rains had caused the  ground to become soft whore the water  pipes had been laid, and Mr. Parker's  horse got into one of these soft spots  and threw his rider. Parker was not  seriously injured.  Recent Nelson arrivals: J. L. Wilson,  L. S. Otis, and G. C. Hodge.  Victoria's Board of Trade.

P., ot Lyndoch, Ontario,  arrived in Buffalo at 11 o'clock this  morning and,;was met at the station by  a committee of the Merchants' -Exchange. ' Mr. Charlton was tendered a  standing luncheon at noon on the floor  of the Merchants' Exchange. Mr. Charl-;  ton spoke of "Reciprocity with" Canada,"  a topic in which the exchange has been  taking an active interest, and in the interests of which the exchange sent a  delegation to appear before president  Roosevelt. He sums up the tariff situation as 'follows: The condition of trade  matters between the two countries may  be suriimarized as follows: "The Canadian tariff is one-half that of the United  States. Canada buys from the,. United  States threefold' as much,' as her sales  to that country of farm produce and  general imports. Canada has opened for  herself other markets and the chief  market now for her products is Great  Britain. Canada derives ner chief supply  of manufactures from the United States.  The condition of trade between the two  countries is so inequitable that great  dissatisfaction prevails in Canada, and  that country will not be contented to  remain in a position where she buys  enormously with offering tariff impediments to the entry of imports .from the  United States, .and is practically excluded from the market of that country. The American tariff can be.copied  by Canada arid ��� a kind of reciprocity  thereby be secured that will minimize  American trade and give it the shrunken proportion now characteristic of the  Canadian exports to the United States.  An Ill-Timed Gust of Wind.  ADRIAN, Michigan, December 3.���An  ill-timed gust of wind was referred to  'today at the inquest aa the direct-cause'  of the frightful accident on the Wabash  railroad last Wednesday, . in which  scores were killed or injured.. Engineer  Strong of the eastbound train said .that  he read his order handed him by conductor Martin to meet trains 13 and 3  at Sand Rock instead of one at Seneca.  As the order was. handed him. and  while he was reading it one corner was  blown over hiding-the word "Seneca."  When he had finished reading the order  he testified that he did not understand  the word Seneca had appeared in it.  Conductor Martin's testimony brought  out the fact that in the coaches with  double windows signals from the engine whistle could not be heard by the  conductor and brakemen. .

Work is reported as shut  down at the Sullivan and North Star  mines.  ;  In the case of Paulson vs. Benson, an  adverse action over a mineral claim in  the Lardo district. C. W. McAnn of Kaslo, for the defendant, moved to have  the action dismissed for want of prosecution. A consent order was made that  the plaintiff go to trial at the next sitting of the court or the case stand dismissed.  George O, Madigan, provincial inspector of boilers, has returned from a trip  of inspection to East Kootenay points.  He reports that Thomas R. Stockett,  the new manager of the Crow's Nest  Coal Company, is abandoning much of  the work that has already been done1,  ���on the coal seam at Michel and proceeding upon entirely new lines. It is  also said that virtually all of tbe boilers  and compressor machinery at the property" is to be replaced,  The litigation over the ground comprised in the Native Silver fraction,  which lies between the Arlington and  Burlington mineral claims in the Slocan, came up in a couple of chamber  motions made before the chief justice  yesterday. In the case of rManley vs.  Collom, an action to determine title  to the ground in dispute, an order was  made upon the application of the defendant approving "of security of costs  for th'e appeal which is to be taken to  the supreme court of Canada; and in  the case of Manley vs. the Arlington  Company, an action to stop the defendant company from working the ground  in dispute, an order was made for the  examination by the registrar of D. H.  Harrington, late foreman of the Arlington property.  PRICE OF SILVER,  [Continued From First Page.]  money to complete the plant was raised.  The mine, however, did not come up tb  expectations. Instead of being the big  lead property which the experts reported it, and which the surface indications  led everyone to believe it was, it  turned out to be.nothing more than a  series of small stringers oJCVjlow grade  galena. There were still possibilities  for the smelter ;as a customs concern,  and the management was equal to the  business,0 but the mines that could have  been drawn upon refused to ship to it.  Few of those who were interested, in  the venture had any idea of what they  were up against until the final smash  came, when it was shown that all that  had been put into the venture and all  that could be borrowed on the strength  of such an investment, had been lost.  Oddly enough one of the heaviest  holders of stock in the venture with  Mr. Collom was R. P. Rithet" of Victoria, who is now associated with him  in the Arlington mine, so that both bid  fair to pull out considerably more than  even on their investments in the district even taking into consideration the  length 61 time that has elapsed between  the two.  A Compromise Likely.  The hearing of the plaintiff's case in  the action of George vs. the Wallace-  Miller Company occupied the whole of  yesterday's sitting of the supreme  court, which was presided over by his  lordship chief justice McColl. The case  is the result of. a falling out of the principal shareholders in the Wallace-Miller  Company. When the business of the  firm was put into a joint stock company  an inventory was taken, as a result of  wh'ich the Wallace-Miller Interest was  credited with $7,000 worth of stock in  the new concern- whicn was organized  and the plaintiff, P. W. George, was  taken in .as a partner, he putting, In  $12,962, thus giving him virtually a one  third interest in the business. Through  the failure.of the stock holders to agree  the present, action was commenced by  George with a-view to securing a winding-up of the company affairs and an  accounting .from ;the date of the organization of the present company.  Yesterday's portion of the hearing of  the case was confined .to the examination of the plaintiff as to the causes for  his dissatisfaction witn the manner in  which the business of the company was  being carried on, and the reading by  his. solicitor of the correspondence between the parties with a view to securing a settlement of the differences before  the suit was brought. This correspondence showed that offers or suggestions  were made on both sides for buying or  selling of the conflicting interests, but  no basis of valuation was arrived at  and in the end the action was commenced.  When the reading of this correspondence was completed the chief justice  suggested a further conference between  the parties to the dispute. He said that  in view of the circumstances disclosed  it was a most extraordinary one, coming  before him in the manner in which it  had. It was evident that the members  of^theicompany.^who^w-ere^reallyupart^  ners, could no longer get along together,  and it was necessary in the interest of  all concerned that some arrangement  should be arrived at. The case was not  before him at present as to what he  should do to settle the diaerences, and  for this reason he would say nothing on  that point, but if it were he said he  would determine in five minutes upon  what should be done. If the counsel  in the case desired it he would be willing to meet them, though not in his  judicial capacity, and talk the matter  over. If this was acceptable, without  expressing any opinion as to the previous attempts at settlement, he would  adjourn the court until the following  day. The suggestion of the court was  accepted and the case was adjourned.  BUSINESS MENTION.  Silver King miners, who were burnad  out yesterday, can save 50 per cent by  buying their clothing at A.
