 Saturday Afternoon, MarcH 14, 1903  So  ARE  PLACED ON RECORD  As Trying to Collect a Larger Bill Than They  Are Not Entitled To.  The following is the bill of costs in  the case brought by ex-alderman John  Paterson, as petitioner, to unseat alderman Chris. Morrison on a technicality.  The petitioner was successful, and his  lawyer, R. W. Hannington, presented  a bill of costs that was cut down from  $416.95 to $317.40 by the court. registrar. The bill will be an eye-opener to  people who have not had dealings with  lawyers:  PETITIONER'S COSTS.

The strike on the Pacific and Western divisions of the C.P.R.  is still on.  The  centi-es  on  the  Pacific  division  moat affected are Vancouver and  Nelson, the two points at which there are  any large number of clerks and freight  handlers employed.   As far as The Tribune can  ascertain,    the   strike was  caused by the company endeavoring to  intimidate employees who had become  members of the Brotherhood of Railway  Employees, an organization  t.he company does not wish to recognize.   The  organization   has  for, its   object   the  caring of tlie interests of railway employees who are not members of other  railway organizations:   On the Pacific  division the organization has a membership of about 400, and in the membership are men'who have long held  responsible positions.   The accountant  of the Pacific division is a member,. as  is -the   baggagemaRter,  at   Vancouver.  While  the  organization   is ' comparatively young, no reasonable person. will  admit that the-object of tjje organization is an iinprop'einone.,  If the men in  other departments .of railway .ervice  [ have found it necpssary to organize in  A order**to better their  condition,   and  such   organizations ��� are' recognized by  Commissioner taking^ and_ marking  ch  60  75'  as  .*> 00  60  00  60  60  so  40  SO  75  60  2 copies of his affidavit, t, folios eacl  3 copies of asscsMiicnt roll    3 copies registrar's, abstract .".*  Org.' notice that petition is fyled and  will be presented   a copies of same     Ins. for motion to-fix date'of trial.  etc i _  Drg. notice of motion '.'.'".'.  -���'a copies,-;"i folios each "7..."

The fact   that  3rd the people of the East ward settled  the president of the organization lives  making a showing at moving its business promptly, it is not doing so at any  point on the Pacific division at which  business originates or is handled to a  large extent.  At Nelson, the employees of the company who are not supposed to become  members of labor organizations are attempting to care for the company's  business; but if they are performing  duties to which they are not accustomed, then they are neglecting duties  to which they are supposed to devote  all their time.  So far as the Tribune is informed,  there has not been a single case of disorderly conduct on the part of any of  the employt*es who have quit work," but  at Vancouver men hired by the company as special policemen have been  guilty of brutality, and travelers who  pass through the- company's epacious  depot at that place feel much as people  who have never been in Russia imagine  thev would bp sure to feel.if they were  in the dominions of the czar.  The members of the organization- in  Nelson are sangunie of success, but  they say that if they are not 'successful  they will probably be ahle to get employment elsewhere without surrendering any of their rights of citizenship.

Tuesday;    Man-^r -  ager. Tonkin of the coal company   met a committee this afternoon for the final  discussion.  The settlement, if one is made, will probably be on lines that will insure peace  at the coal, mines at Michel, Coal "Creek, and Morrissey for a long time to come..  This is most desirable, for the economical working of the metal mines of southeastern Kootenay is dependent on a cheap and reliable fuel supply.    Both the coal and  coke of the Crow's Nest Pass are of good quality, and the prices charged are not  i deemed unreasonable.  *  t  the bill by" electing James A.

The only men who* appear to have  made anything out of the job were  lawyers Hannington and Macdonald.  4 00  5 00  More Prospective Candidates.  There are more prospective candidates for legislative honors in southeast  Kootenay than in all the other ridings  on the mainland. The latest names  mentioned are Fred Stork of Fernie and  Dr. Wilson of the same town. Both are  Liberals and both are party-line men.  In fact, there is only one Mugwump in  southeast Kootenay, and he lives at  Fort Steele.  so  �� so  �� so  Sawmill Men Quit Work.  A week ago today 36 men employed  at the mills of the Robinson-McKenzie  Lumber, Company near Cranbrook  quit work because of the. words and  acts of a Chinese cook. The men say  the manager of the company told them  that he preferred to keep a good Chinaman to them, and they took him at his  word. The manager says he did not  know the men ever had a grievance.  in San Francisco should have no more  bearing    than    the  fact   that   Peter  Arthur, the head of the Brotherhood of  Locomotive Engineers, is a resident of  Cleveland, Ohio, and the head of the  Order of Railway Conductors lives at  Cedar Rapids, Iowa.   Both, these organizations are recognized by the Canadian Pacific Railway Company,  notwithstanding the fact that their official  heads are citizens"of"th"e"CJnited_States7  The railway company brings no charges  of incompetence against the members  of the Brotherhood of Railway   Employees;    no    charges    of     unfaithfulness;   no    charges    of    unwillingness   to   work.   The  company's only  charge is that they are members of an  organization that Aaa not been  recognized by the company, and that they  must either sever their connection with  their organization or with the company.  Men of spirit could only return one-  answer to such a demand, and the men  at Vancouver on seeing the officers and  prominent members of their organization discharged or changed to remote  points   on    the    road,   accepted   the  challenge of the company and are now  endeavoring for mastery. That they will  succeedisa question, but that they have  the sympathy of the public acquainted  with all the facts is without question.  The company says they have a sufficient force to handle their business  without delay, butjsuch statements are  manifestly untrue. Two hundred and  fifty men trained to special duties at a  place like Vancouver cannot be replaced in two weeks. As an instance,  three days after the arrival of any of  the Empresses at Vancouver the entire  cargo is handled and on the way to its  destination. One of the Empresses arrived at Vancouver on Wednesday, the  4th instant. The steamer's cargo was  still undischarged on Wednesday last,  and a boss stevedore was advertising  fose 50 men to do the work. The company's system of bookkeeping is a most  complex one, and new men cannot  learn it in a day. So it may be taken  for granted that while the company is  this afternoon, Harry Houston of the  Kootenay River. Lumber Company  received a cut over his right eye that  required three stitches.  Paul Johnson, who was manager of  the Greenwood smelter until recently,  has contracted to build a smelter on  one of the Alaskan islands, and leaves  for the scene of operations in a few  days.  George McL. Brown is making a repu-  tation-as-superin tenden t-of-the-hotel  and dining-car service of the C. P. R.  If his salary is in proportion to his  menu charges, he will soon be building  railways for himself in Cuba or some  other foreign land.  The reported strike of rich ore in the  drift on the 1000-foot level in the Ymir  mine, near Ymir, if true, will do more  to restore confidence in British Columbia mines than anything that the  legislature may do in a hundred years.  The factory of the Kootenay River  Lumber Company starts up on Monday  with Thomas Sproat as foreman. The  sawmill will be torn down and entirely  rebuilt, and then have new machinery  installed throughout. The mills and  factory of the company will give employment to a large number of men.  Nelson has one of the evidences of  being a real city at least part of the  time. The time is on Saturday afternoon when the small boys who sell The  Tribune are assembled in "front of the  stairway. leading to the publication  office. Victoria andv Vancouver are not  in it, either in the number of the boys  or in good looks���or in ability to make  noises.  G. C. Tunstall, Jr., who is the agent  in southeastern Kootenay of the Hamilton Powder Company, is back from a  month's trip to the Coast. He was as  far .south as 'Frisco and as far north as  Nanaimo. He saw a number of old  time residents of Nelson in 'Frisco,  among others captain Gifford and Dr.  Quinlan. Captain Gifford is doing well  and will probably soon assume the  management of a mine in Old Mexico.  The Canadian Bank of Commerce  Absorbs  a  Nova Scotia Bank.  GrBat interest has been shown in the  announcement from Halifax that a provisional   agreement   has  been   made  under   which   The  Halifax   Banking  Company is to be amalgamated with  The Canadian Bank of Commerce.  The  latter bank has at present a paid-up  capital  of  $8,000,000,   with a rest of  $2,500,000, but a week  or two ago a  special general meeting of the shareholders was called for 14th April next  to "pass a by-law'increasing the capital  stock to $10,000,000.   Its head office _is  in Toronto, and it has now 84 branches  thrnm'hont Canada   and *the   United  States, stretching from Sydney,  Cape  Breton, in the extreme East, to Victoria in the West, and from Dawson 'in  the   North   to ��� San   Francisco in   the  South.   It   is  represented   at all   the  principal .business centres in . Canada  west of 'Montreal,    and- has  its  own  offices in New York, Portland (Oregon),  Seattle, and London, England. .*,,,  - Until the recent' establishment of * a  branch at Sydney, The Canadian Bank  of Commerce had no office in the Maritime Provinces. Its stock,l however,  has always been a favorite investment  with Nova Scotians, no less than $800,- ,  000 of its capital being held in their  province. The purchase' of The Halifax  Banking Cornpany will give it offices at <  fifteen additional points in Nova Scotia,  including Halifax, Truro and Windsor  ���in ,fact, all. the more important  places. Two branches will also be obtained in New Brunswick���at St. John  and Sackville.  '  - The present directors of,The Halifax  Banking  Company   will  continue   to  give their services in the capacity of a  local advisory board at - Halifax, the   '  eashier  will become"  local   manager  ".-*  there, and the-eritire staff_will,be taken ' *f  HiUo^the, 8��r,vice'-,of ;THeA Canadian ��-Ba.nk^-��>^  of' Commerce.*  There is" consequently    -      -*  no doubt but that the good-will of the  institution is being taken over, along  with its tangible assets.  Originally established in 1825 as a  private partnership, under the same  nameKa8 at present, The Halifax Banking Company became incorporated in  1872.' It has retained the friendship  and support of many of the old Halifax  firms whose predecessors did business  with it in its earliest years, and in  spite of the disadvantages under which  in these days a comparatively small  local bank niust always labor, it has  built up a sound and remunerative  business. It has a paid-up .capital of  $600,000, with a rest of $525,000. Its  deposits are about $4,000,000, its total  assets about $6,000,000, and with the  added strength and prestige which its  incorporation into The Canadian Bank  of Commerce will necessarily give, a  large increase in the present business  may confidently be expected.  _ _The_terms _under_which_the_amalga-- .   mation will take place are said to be as  follows:  After the necessary approval of the  shareholders of The Halifax Banking  Company has been obtained and all  the requisite legal formalities have  been completed, The Canadian Bank of  Commerce will assume the liabilities of  The Halifax Banking Company, and  will give in exchange for the surplus of  its assets over its liabilities stock of  The Canadian Bank of Commerce of  the par value of $700,000.  Doubtless some of the new stock  which The Canadian Bank of Commerce  is taking authority to issue will be used  to carry out the" terms of the agreement.  Both banks are to be congratulated  upon the arrangement which has been  made, which must materially strengthen the position of The Canadian Bank  of Commerce and add to the exceptional  facilities which it already possesses for  conducting a successful banking business. When the amalgamation has  taken place, it will have a paid-up capital and rest combined of nearly $12,-  000,000, and total assets of some $80,-  000,000,' with 101 branches distributed  throughout the length and breadth of  Canada, one of which is at Nelson.  *.,--,���$��.*-���*��� ���  Lirl  Court Rrglstrar Appointed.

Will it  announce a general policy and attempt  to"carry it out? Or will it announce  that it will pass the estimates, private  bills, and needed non-contentious legislation, then ask for a dissolution, to'be  followed by a general election? ' The  Tribune has advocated tlie latter  course; but as The Tribune is no more  interested in the government's un-.  known railway policy than it is  in' the  intriguing that has  been  going on   for  months   with  tbe object of  throwing  premier Piior. out and   placing  in  his  place that   great   placeman 'attorney-  general  Eberts, its views are  not  considered-"practicable''by  the  practical  politicians    who   live  in    and  around  Victoria. The government will probably  meet the house, and it will probably be  defeated if.an attempt is made to curry  out" a railway  policy.   The following-  named'are  expected   to  vote   for  any,  .railway    policy   the  government   may  bring  clown,    namely,   'Prior,    Kbeits,  . Wells,  Prentice,   Mclnnes,   Duiismuir,  Mou'nce,      Dickie,      Hall,     Hayward,  Helmcken,   Pooley,    Clifford,    Hunter,  Rogers, and A. W. Smith, a total nf 16.  Messrs.  Neil!, Stables, and  Ellison are  in doubt.    Were  these three    to vote  7with .the "above-named   Hi," tl ie'J government would be in a minority of  one  with speaker Pooley in the chair.   Can  the government win over the necessary  number to give it a  working majority?  No!    Can the government  secure sufficient support to carry .out  the  policy  advocated by The Tribune?   Yen!  and  no!   Yes, if the Eberts intriguers' don't,  jump the  traces.    If  they  do.   no.    If  they jump   the   u-ace.s. premier   Prior  will be up against,  it.    The Ebons  intriguers do not want to t.o to tbe country, and they want to be in oirice  when  the    next   general   election    is   held.  They undoubtedly, can -secure a  majority in the present house.    Will premier  Prior step down and let them?  , The.meeting at Victoria of the Provincial' Mining   Association  did   little  more than raise objections to the  taxation of mines and allow Kossland  malcontents, like E.JB.   Kirby  and  A, C.  Gait,' to air their grievances.   Of course,  the men  who   work   in   mines  had a  chance to give their views,  and  if any  good results from the meeting it may  be in the direction of bringing about a  better understanding between tlie men  who work in mines  for wages  and the  men who pay the  wages���and   there is  room  for a  better  understanding,  for  British Columbia is having more  than  its   share   of   misunderstandings   that  tend to cause great  loss  to  people not  directly  interested   in   the   misunderstandings.   Men who work for wages  claim they have the  right to organize  for mutual   protection.     This ��� is  now  generally bon ceded them by fair-minded  employers.   But there are employers,  like   James   Dunsmuir,   the  Canadian  Pacific   Railway   Company,   and    the  Crow'. Nest Pass Coal  Company,   who  want to have the privilege of deciding  as   to   what   organizations   their   employees shall  belong.    The employees  will not stand for any such interference  ���and this is a free country.    To show  that it is, the employees of the Crow's  Nest Pass Coal Company and the Canadian Pacific Railway Company strike,  and James   Dunsmuir notifies his  hundreds of workmen to look for jobs somewhere else than near the town at which  he, has encouraged them to build homes.  Surely there must be  something  radically wrong in such a system, if  this is  indeed a free country !  ��� Nelson, although it has a large revenue, is in debt. Have the members of  the council, individually or collectively,  made an estimate of the city's revenue  for 1903 and how the revenue is to "be  expended? If they have, what savings  have they reckoned on making in order  to make both ends meet, and at the  same time carry out the promised  street improvements?  Before creating an office to be filled  by a high-priced official, the city council of Nelson should first consider the  difficulty they have had in getting rid  of one small-fry official. If it takes two  elections to get rid of a subordinate  clerk, how many elections will be required to get rid of] an official who is  designated "collector, assessor, and  sanitary inspector",? ���.  ,'er   power 1 8'ona 8iniple  resolution  affirming the  fl.n_,  H      principle of"compulsory   conciliation  .. ;      ����>d arbitration" might perhaps have  sufficed, but it was noticeable that the  discussion following the introduction  was rather upon the methods suggested  than upon the principle involved. Mr.  Hodge confined himself to the reading  and elaboration of the many clauses of  his bill and the necessity for some drastic measures for minimizing the number of strikes and lockouts, and the  consequent public injury.  Rev. Mr. Graham, who supported the  bill in a capital speech, pointed out that,  besides the immediate employer and  employed, there was the general public  who deserved consideration, and must  not suffer because of the selfishly wicked or the wickedly selfish, ln a dispute  between employer and employed, he  said with some heat, the 6ide who was  unwilling, to take the public into its  confidence was not entitled to much  consideration.  Mr. Hansford opposed the bill in a  temperate speech, and criticized many  of its sections as impractical and likely  to work injustice. Mr. Ebbs, the new-  minister of labor while disposed to support the bill regarded it-as merely a  poultice calculated only to ease the  pain of a wound to which lancet or  knife would have ultimately to be  applied. The debate, which taken for  all in all, was one of the most interesting and instructive had in the mock  parliament, was adjourned on the  motion of Rev. Dr. Wright. It will be resumed next Monday evening, when the  doctor will support the bill, and John  Fraser will express the determined  opposition to every form of compulsory  arbitration. There will be other participants in the discussion, and - the  sitting will undoubtedly be very , interesting.  \ It is easy to preach economy before  an election, but apparently a,,most difficult matter to practice economy after  an election. The,trouble is the men  who preach will not practice what they  preach.   ,  SUCCESS CLUB MOCK PARLIAMENT.  Mr.  Hodge Introduces  His  Arbitration   Bill-  New Premier Takes His Seat.  The sitting of the  parliamentary ad-  junct-of the Success Club last* Monday  evening.was 'more tlian usually interesting.   F. M. Black', the new leader of  the house, was in ibis place  for'the first  time since he became first minister, and  made    official    announcement   of  the  formation of a cabinet and of the  measures which woulcl in duetime  be  submitted   for   the   consideration    of the  house.   The piogramme is sufficiently  ambitious and  comprehensive.    Theie  will be a revision of the system  of  taxation of mines.    He  will ask the house  to authorize the cohstiucl.ion  of a  line  of railway, as a  government undertaking, which will open up a'rich and  fertile hection of the province, but the approximate location of his proposed railway was- not defined.    Tlie new government'will also undertake the  revision  and amendment of tbe provincial  educational  system  and  will   introduce a  bill to amend the entire system of taxation in the province, dealing incidentally with lands, water rights'} foreshore  rights, stumpage, old age  pensions and  government insurance.    These are all  live questions, and it will be interesting  to note how the amateur legislators of  the   Success  Club, deal  with   matters  which   have  puzzled  those   of. a more  ambitious sort.    Whatever may be  the  outcome, no slight) degree of courage is  manifested in attacking them.  '  Following the pronouncement-of  the  premier   came   the..discussion   of   the  com pulsoryconciiiatioir.-irrd'arbitral ion"  act,  introduced   by  G. C. Hodge.   The  .bill'is.a comprehensive one and  is designed to remove the cause  of strikes  and lockouts by the appointment of a  secretary  of labor   and  the establishment of boards of conciliation and  a  court of arbitration for  the ..settlement  of all disputes and differences which  may arise between employers of  labor  and" their employees. The duty of currying out the provisions of the "act is.assigned to a secretary of labor, who is to  be appointed  by: the  lieutenant-govei-  nor-in-council, who will.register nllup-  SHERIFF'S SALE.

TIMOTHY HAY'S REMARKS  The  Crow's  Neefc -Coal  Company's  miners would seem to be suffering-from  too much corporation "squeeze," judging from the statement by the press  committee of the miners' union- as published in The Tribune last week.   The  poor and unfortunate "directors���unfortunate because they are shareholders  in a rich corporationthat was literally  presented by a grateful parliament with  coal lands that   were   of  inestimable  value���would  rather  close  down   the  mines for months than accede to the  demands  of  the  miners  for  a more  equitable wage scale.    Why?   Because  their greed for money coined by the  sweat and blood of human beings must  be satiated.   The good, fat dividends  must   regularly appear   that   the big  shareholders may take in the winter  watering places, and, perchance, endow  colleges for those who are well able to  pay for their education.   But the men  who mine the coal,  who create the fat  dividends, who furnish  the means for  other   people's   pleasure���whv   should  their wages be .increased?   Let there  be none of it! , Close down the mines  and let them stay closed, ' and starve  the   miners   down   to  the last crust!  Then they will   be  submissive, their  haughty spirits   will   be broken,   and  they   will  be glad   to  work' for their  masters, the coal barons in Toronto.  At a recent meeting of the War Eagle  and Centre Star mining companies* in  Toronto, president Blackstock made a  somewhat' startling(?) announcement,  says an eastern dispatch. It was to the  effect that if the miners' union would  not go 'way back and get tired, if the  city of Rossland would not supply the  mines with free water (and perhaps the  manager with free Gooderham), if the  legislature would not change the mining laws to suittheir ores, and if the  shareholders in general didn't stop  wanting to know "how about it," that  the companies would cease operations  and would withdraw from Rossland district.. Poor Rossland, thou knowest the  worst at last! I.shed a tear for thy  inglorious finish. Foi4 the information  of Mr. Blackstock, it might be well to  mention that the manager's time is so  much taken up with" the game of politics, so "anxious that Mr. Gait, the.legal  end.of the, company, should keep the  law continually in motion about something, and equally anxious about the  newspaper end of the companv (locally  known as "Barney's Legacy,)' that he  surely has no time for mining. Perhaps, forall Mr. Kirby knows, the miners may simply be blasting outa short  route to China.      ,  > "   -.  A mine manager with a swelled-head  and a few nigger-driving shift-bosses  are sure to be the cause of constant discontent among the men. And, with die-  content, the product will surely be curtailed. It would be more profitable to  the company if the directors would pension-off such manager and shift-bosses  and instal those who feel that they too  are but common clay. It takes brains  to mine coal or metalliferous' ores.  That may account; in a way, for the  promotion of some men to be shift-  bosses and overseers.  The legislature,, some five years ago,  euacted what is known as the "Truck  Act," in order that gross abuses might  be corrected. But what has been the  result? The corporation have been  "wised-up" by their legal advisers, and  find no trouble to evade the law. The  "Truck Act" is being violated in Rossland today���and it always was so. I  have in mind a town in the -Boundary  where the corporations use their graft.  If a man spends his money in a certain  saloon, buys his groceries and dry goods  at another particular place, or boards  at the "right" hotel, he can always get  _worklinthe_mineH.^-If such is the case  ���and it certainly is���then, either the  mining company has an interest in  these places of business, or else those  in. authority get a rake-off. If the  former, then the corporations, mindful  of their own greed and the helplessness  of those whom they employ, would be  only too anxious to overcharge those  who must buy frem them.  The Crow'�� Nest Coal management  seem to have fallen into, the.ways of  Bernard Macdonald and sought  "safety"jn the spy system. Life was  made so '"warm and weary" for two  known union traitors in the Crow's  Nest country that they thought it  prudent to leave hurriedly. A system  of espionage of this kind could only be  einployed by those lacking all the vital  principles of manliness and is nothing  less than contemptible. If an employer  hates the union, let him fight fairly.  Timothy Hay.  FORSALE CHEAP  The Best Hay and Stock Ranch  in the Kootenay Country. . .

On Monday evening the city council  met in regular session. Present: the  mayor; aldermen Irving, Selous, Kirkpatriek, Gilker, and* Hamilton, alderman Bird being absent owing to a  sprained knee. D. C. McMorris acted as  city clerk, and read the minutes of last  meeting, -which were adopted. The  mayor appointed alderman Gilker chairman of the finance committee, in place  of ex-alderman Morrisson, and alderman Bird, H. H. Avery and the chief  of the fire department, fire wardens  for the ensuing year.| ���  The finance committee has not been  able to ' meet, so there was no report.  The necessary accouiits for wages, etc.,  were passed by the council.  Applications for the positions of city  clerk and treasurer were then read.  For city clejk, from'Frank McGow-m,  Vernon; John Watson, Nelson; J. K.  Strachan, Nelson; and D. C. McMorris,  Nelson. For city treasurer, E. J.  Crickmay, Vancouver; A. P. Hay,  Nelson; J. O'Donnell, Nelson; and  W. E. Wasson, Nelson.  The mayor suggested that before  voting the council should discuss the  advisability of combining the offices of  city clerk and treasurer.  Alderman Selous asked if it was the  intention that two men should do the  work in the"city hall instead of three.  The mayor said that was the, intention. After discussion as to the advis-  bilityof combining the||ofnce8 of the  city clerk and city treasurer in which  all the aldermen took part, it was decided that they should be separate as  before, the mayor to arrange, the duties  so that the city clerk, shall do part of  the work formerly done by the accountant, and the collection of accounts to  be undertahen- by the sanitary inspector. The ballot was then passed  for the office of city clerk, and captain  D. C. McMorris was unanimously appointed.  W. E. Watson was re-appointed city  treasurer, receiving - 4 votes to 1 for  J. O'Donnell, the mayor not voting.
