 The Nelson Tribune  Saturday Afternoon, MarcH _21, 19Q3  THE MINING ASSOCIATION  A  Creation That  Would  Not  Carry Oui Its  Creator's Wishes. H  Captain Clive Phillipps-Wolley, a  one Aft am'Tr1' and a Ph����sopher, was  thf Dthe-de.leFates in attendance at  Th* .f ?^incial Mi��ing Association,  xne captain was once a capitalist, but  the real estate sharks of Victoria and  m?,r.,lffrg0t his caPita1' and he hasn't  ?��m ��� , ?��7except a sma11 farm- a"d  shnr'J?%l0^��fexperience, and manliness  RHtio* Alff,eCta,fc-lon- The editor of the  ���" n C��iun?b,a Mining Review, who  was one of the sponsors   as   well  as  Winin 8*c.refcai7 .of the Provincial  ,ii ?ug Asa��eiatwn, r was unable to  th-.* *i. con���ntion justice, seeing  ���m'^h- h(_u delegates did not do  anything that the sponsors of the  association wanted them to do, so he  got the captain to write it up. and  the captain's readable write-up is as  the  same  principle   to  all   questions  brought before it.  It decided that the laws relative to  the silver-lead industry concerned first  the silver-lead miners and therefore  backed  their  petition,  but when  the  THE STRIKE AT FERNIE  mine owners wanted the code of signals ' f heen in Fernie during the week  upon which the lives of their emplovees !   on their return to Nelson hav(  depended altered against the wishes of I   pressed their views as to the proba-1  those employees,  the association said |    bility of the strike at Fernie being |  "No."   The men most interested don't! I brought to an end.   The views ex-f  As far as one's memory serves, and  we admit that it is hazy, there was  once; a professor named Frankenstein  who set himself to make a man, which  (not "who," for it was a machine)  should live to perform all tlie ordinary  functions of a man, and of course be  ��� tlie slave of its creator.  The professor partially succeeded.  His man walked, talked, and could do  all manner of work, but it would not  obey its maker. On the contrary, the  Giant Creation took charge "of its  Creator.   _^  ���That in a nutshell is to our mind the  story of the greatest creation of modern  times in British Columbia, the story of  the Provincial Mining Association.  A certain number of extremely energetic and well meaning gentlemen,  occupied for the most part in tiie mining of gold gravels, created this association for the general welfare and their  own particular profit, which was reasonable. They even outlined for their  creature a mind and intentions which  might be announced to the world before its christening.  On the faith of these declared intentions, the creature found many spoh-  soi-s and  friends  in  all classes of the  yVconi'iiiunity.  Whether the creators quite meant all  that they promised may be doubted  nowin view of the declarations made  , at the late, convention with, regard,-to  " -the admission *of .labbridisputes, l\ie  duty of fid vising the legislature, 'etc.,  etc., but what thev meant matters  little.  They builded better than they knew.  The great creature was stronger than  its   creators and  insisted upon every  ''  letter of its constitution.  The miners, farmers, business men  and others directly interested in the  mining industry had been told by the  parents of the association that its objects would be the general welfare of  British Columbia, which would assuredly follow upon the prosperity of mining, and that this prosperity could only  be attained by an abolition of unjust  mining laws; the introduction of conditions likely to attract foreign capital;  the settling of labor troubles; the education of our legislators in mining matters by specialists in mining, etc.  When the associates met to organize,  they were nearly 300 strong and not  only were all classes and all geographical divisions in British Columbia represented, but from the pithiness of the  debates it would almost seem as if the  brains of the country were also represented^ 1 ,__  ~ But when the associates had heen  convened, it seemed for a doubtful day  that the matters to be discussed were  indeed'as represented, but that the only  urgent matters were the two per cent  tax upon gross output;; the granting of  crown grants to hydraulic properties;  the endorsement of the silver-lead min-  '! ers' Sandon resolution and several  minor matters, all tending to lessen  the burden upon the mine owner.  After listening attentively for a day  tlie creature woke and proved that it  was intelligent.  It said practically "the two per cent  tax is really a small matter. In the  gross it only amounts to $84,000 and  the amount paid under it by some of  the biggest of the grumblers is so small  that I will spar* their feelings by not  calling for figures. But the incidence  of this tax is unjust, and it may indeed  be a bugbear which keeps out foreign  capital and therefore I, because I believe these things and believe that the  removal of the two per cent tax will  cause an increase of mining which will  cause an increase of population, and so  of revenue (probably in excess of the  $84,000 which the government 1b asked  to forgo) therefore, and because of all  these things, I will recommend that the  gentlemen who make the laws of British Columbia do abolish this tax."  Again, in discussing the troubles of the  silver-lead miners, this association said  "This seems a matter which has heen  well considered by those most interested and best informed upon the subject. Their demands appear to be  reasonable. They don't want our advice, but they deserve our support.  Let them have it."  But this  creature (the  association)  added riders to everything and applied  most interested don't  want this code altered, therefore hands  off and let it alone.  When the two per cent tax was protested the association assented to the  protest, but it added this rider which  the mining men had to affirm: "That  with respect to the resolution passed  dealing with the abolition of the two  per cent tax, this convention shall not  be understood as being opposed to a fair  and equitable taxation of the mining  industry.''  The farmers had good right to fear  lest the taxes which were being taken  off the miners might light upon their  shoulders,, but the creature was minded  to be fair to the farmer and to deal out  impartial justice to all men.  When it came to the crown granting  of placer ground, the creature for the  first time showed its teeth. It suffers  acutely, it would seem, from indigestion, and not being American, refuses  to be hurried over its meals.  It was not opposed to the principle of  crown granting placer claims, but it  did not know much about the matter  and wanted to hear more, when therefore a few experts delivered their explanations which were not very explanatory and expected their arguments to  "go without saying" and their dose to  be swallowed without investigation, the  creature, which is still young, did indeed  swallow what it was asked to, but became so restless and irritable afterwards that it registered its annoyance  and protest against "railroading" measures through.its body, by an attempt  to re-open the whole*'question, which  was only abandoned on account of the  greater importance -of settling the  Fernie strike. -  _ There is a ��� great deal to._be said, in^  favor of these crown grants.' On all the'  showings nothing can shut the country  up* more than it has already been shut  up; every one is agreed that investing  capital does seek greater security of  teiiuieand that long-column o.f recom-'  ���meudations which in the report-follows  the main contention re crown grants,  contains, if yourread it, answers to  almost, all the" objections which' can be  urged against'the granting of them, but  the- creature was not allowed time to  read those recommendations or to discuss them seriatum as it wanted to do,  and had no appetite for mental food  ready digested by some one else, or for  tlie pretty poppy-cock about "untold  millions and dear old prospectors,"  wildernesses which would blossom with  cities, or even for that picture of Mr.  Hobson,- its papa, driving droves of  shiny American millionaires in crush  hats up the Cariboo road. Therefore it  demurred, but eventually became resigned again, remembering that after  all the resolution-1 in question only  "urged that the legislature should give  its serious consideration to these recommendations."  But with regard to certain gross heresies the creature was emphatic.  It had been avowedly created to give  advice, founded upon experience and  special knowledge to legislators who  were alleged to be insufficiently informed upon mining matters. The  minister_of_mines-had_attended���the  creature's birth in all humility and had  asked for its advice, and how certain of  the creature's parents calmly affirmed  that it was no part of the associatiou's  business to advise the government.  "Then," replied the creature, "you  have no business here at all."  But it may be that the parents meant  more than this, for one of them brought  in a motion which for audacity beats  Bannagher.   Here.it is:  A. C. Gait and J. B. Hobson moved  as follows:  "That having regard to the laxity  which has heretofore prevailed in the  legislature of British Columbia in the  enactment of laws and amendments to  laws affecting the mining industry and  the serious difficulties occasioned thereby, and having regard to the widely  represented character of the association, and the fact that it includes within its membership many of the most  competent authorities in this province  to advise upon all, matters affecting the  mining industry, this association do respectfully urge upon the goverment  and legislature of British Columbia the  advisability of enacting that no legislation whatever affecting the mining industry or any branch thereof shall be  introduced unless the same has been  approved by this association, or unless  the association has been given a reasonable' period, not less than three weeks,  within which to consider and advise  upon such intended legislation."  This would make of the association  an upper chamber, or substitute an  irresponsible, unelected body representing one interest only for the duly  elected representatives " of the whole  people.  Of course the creature told its parents  on the veins and a large expenditure of  good money on the wrong one is a  familiar sight.  A number of well-known men have  and  e ex-1  pressed are all of the same tenor,  * and to the effect that THERE WILL  BE NO ADJUSTMENT OF THE.1  DIFFERENCES EXISTING BE-"  CAUSE OF THE UNREASONABLE DEMANDS MADE BY THE  MEN IN REGARD TO WAGES.  If this is a statement of fact, the  sooner the men at Fernie become  reasonable in their demands, the  better it will' be for them.   They  | cannot hope to win their fight if  f public opinion isagainst them, and  ! if the commission or committee now,  I at Fernie publish their conclusions*  I or findings, and these conclusions or  f findings are against the men, public  J opinion will" undoubtedly be influ-  J enced by suchi a ireport. The diffi-  j culty at Fernie,.like the strike in the J  ��� anthracite districts of Pennsylvania,  J affects the country at largev Thou-  ! sands of people in southeastern British Columbia other than the workers |  in the Crow's Nest Pass Coal Company's mines | are affected by the  strike, even more than the workers .  are themselves: These people will |  back up the jmen if the men are  unfairly treated; but they will hot  back the men up if the men are  unwilling to settle with the cem-  pnny on terms|deemed fair and equitable bv a committee of impartial  men. IF THE STRIKERS LOSE  PUBLIC OPINION THEY WILL  LOSE THE STRIKE.  Safety should be .the first, consid-  oration in working coal mines;   the  f next consideration   should be that  | the men ^working as contractors do  I not lose time through failure of the  ��� management'to supply proper appli-  (ances   and   equipment.     The   coal  mines at Fernie may be safe, but the  management have not - treated the  j men fairly in supplying them with  i appliances   and ^'equipment.     Once  ��� meir ;are suppU^i^wJith'. the 'appli-  j'-tnc'-S for*st'ear}y'r--woir&;'surely the  i question ofa fair rate for the work  I done could be settled without undue  f loss of time.   -  Are Against the Bill.  Railway employees do not take kindly  to the revised "Railway Labor Act,"  as   introduced  by. postmaster-general  Mulock.   A circular letter sent out by  the secretary of a joint committee of  the Order of Railway Conductors and  Brotherhood of Railway Trainmen in  British Columbia, says: "We wish to  call your attention to  the revised edition of the "Railway Labor Act."   This  act, which, in its first form, undeniably  made arbitration compulsory,  and  we  believe the same objectionable feature  to be present in its revised state. This,  we claim, is unfair under present conditions, and it appears to us that the  purpose of this bill is to disrupt railway organizations, and, if successful,  the   ultimate  downfall   of  organized  labor in Canada by this same means.  We wish also to call your attention to  tho signal victory that we gained by  our protests on the first edition,  as the  government never intended to deviate  from the first measure, but on account  of the popular movement against it,  they saw organized labor was waking  up to its own interests and something  had to be done.   Now,  we ask you to  put your shoulders to  the wheel once  more, and  forever silence such unjust  and   dangerous .legislation.   We wish  you would send a copy of this protest  to your representative at Ottawa and  to Harvey Hall," legislative representative* at Ottawa for the Brotherhood of  Locomotive Engineers, Brotherhood of  Locomotive Firemen, Order of Railway  Conductors, and Brotherhood  of Railroad Trainmen; and  to the Hon.  Sir  William  ;Mulock,   minister  of   labor,  Ottawa."     .  -  THE MISTAKES IN MINING  It is not uncommon to see large sums  spent >n hunting ore along the edges of  some worke 1-out ore shoot. In other  cases the barren vein areas between  shoots is explored by the same close  and expensive network of shafts, winzes  and levels that would be used within  the areas ��� of the shoots themselves.  Since shoots stand up and down in a  vein, there is more chance of striking  one by horizontal than by vertical workings. Incidentally the former are much  cheaper. Notwithstanding this, the  chief hopes in development work are  apt-to centre on the shafts and winzes,  because these gain depth.   The old and  Lives Lost Through- Carelessness.  The. accident at the Nettie L. .mine,  near Ferguson, in the Lardeau district,  -last week, by which four young.'men  lost their lives, was due to carelessness.  A winze was being 'sunk in the main  tunnel. .The shift who had quit work  turned off the air before firings round,  of shots/and failed to^turn.it on 'again |  after the 8hot8-wvere fired.* This^,allowed'1  the powderfumeBto sett le^'aV'the"'bottom of the winze, and the .first men of  the next shift who went down the  ladder were overcome with the fumes.  When the air was' turned on it drove  the fumes from the bottom of the winze  to the top, and the man who afterwards  so pluckily staid at the bottom of the  winze, going down as a rescuer, was  working in comparatively pure air,  Avhile the men hoisted froni the bottom  and those at the top were in foul air.  (Concluded on Page 5.)  never-dying delusion that mines always  improve with depth is partly responsible for this.*- As a matter of fact, mines  improve when any working gets into an  ore shoot. But now and then some  shaft headed for j the earth's centre  chances to ruu into a shoot on its downward slope. The same shoot might  have been found (with little delay or  expense by a short level from the shaft  while it was-shallow. Indeed, it may  come to the surface and a little skillful  prospecting expose it there at the beginning of operations. Nevertheless,  such strikes arei always given as  proof of the depth theory. When  mining in fissure veins a part of  the development work is often  wasted by being ."run off the vein."  The filled and cemented fissure which  constitutes a vein) of this class is not  often a simple, cleancut break. Like  any other fracture ina solid mass, it  has branches, side bows and parallel  crevices in every conceivable form.  These may be distributed through a  width of 20 to 100 feet and are more or  less connected by (interlacing crevices.  It ia not necessaryj and sometimes impossible at first sight to distinguish the  principal ore-bearihg fracture or "main  vein" from the others. At every split  there is a chance of following the wrong  clew and the sum and the total of such  possible errors in a single mine is evident. The difficulties are increased by  the fact that an ore shoot frequently  jumps from one crevice to another and  mine levels, therefore, pass by it. In  addition to the difficulties ��of identifying the main crevice of one vein, are  those which come from the existence of  other veins must be reached anew by a  lower shaft, crosscut or tunnel, there is  danger of mistake.   There are no tags  No Change In Strike Situation.  Thereis little change in the local C.  P.R. strike situation. The clerks and  freight handlers who are out at Nelson  and other points on the C.P.R. system  in southern British Columbia are not  talking for publication, no more is  superintendent Downie. The men  know that the superintendent is  merely obeying instructions from  officials higher up than himself,  and no one of them can be induced  to say a word against him. Any  action the men may take here will be  in line with the action taken by the  iiien_who-are_out_at^-Yancouver���--The  men out at Nelson were all good workers when in the company's employ, and  if they do not win and go back to the  company, tliey will be able to get other  employment. Thoy certainly have  public opinion on their side.  Are Active and Hopeful.  The Slocan Lake country may not be  as lively as during boom  periods, but  the people of its three towns look as if  they had   enough   to eat and drink.  Few houses are   empty.    Those who  are working get good wages, and  those'  who do not work look as if they were  prospering.   The Bosun  nnd  Ifartney  mines  at   New    Denver,    tlie    Fisher  Maiden   and Vancouver at  Silverton.  and    the   Arlington,    Republic,    and  Ottawa at Slocan Citv are working and  shipping.   A sawmilf, that when completed will have a big output~-is  being  erected at Slocan  City, and  the Win-  law mill at Winlaw siding is running  full  time.    A  number of   men  are in  the woods getting   ont   logs,  railway  ties, and cordwood.   There is no boom,  butthere is activity and hopo.  Then and Now.  Thirteen years ago today the outlet  between Nelson nnd Kokanee creek  was open for short stretchep, although  the ice was rotten on the stretches that  were closed. Thatdny thirteen years  aeo all the mail for the residents  of Nelson was packed in on Ned Bray's  broad back all the way from Kootenai  station, 28 miles beyond Bonner's Ferry.  Ned Bray is now a canitalist, having  made a cleanup out of shares in the  Crow's Nest Pass Coal Company, and  the residents of Nelson get mail by  the ton daily.  TOWN AND DISTRICT NEWS  The Week's Happenings at tbe Hub of the  Kootenays Briefly Told.  Spring yourself for a spring overcoat.  J. A. Gilker has the overcoats, and they  are the finest ever brought to Nelson.  Paul Johnson is in Nelson en route to  Prince of Wales Island, where he will  build a smelter for a New York syndicate.  Fred Jarvis and Fred Bates, two old-  time prospectors and miners, have purchased the Gluepot, one of the-best  known saloons in Nelson. - *    *  Blanchard- Johnstone and George  Gore, two Nelson boys, have constructed an automobile that is propelled by  muscle. It is a novelty and attracts '  almost as much attention on the streets  as a dog fight.  -Harry Wright,' provincial assessor  and collector for the Nelson assessment  district, is preparing a list of the crown  granted mineral claims on which taxes  are delinquent, and when the list is  completed it will be advertised. There  are over 120 claims on tlie list.  The Tribune will occupy its old premises on and after Tuesday next. The*  premises are midway between the Canadian Bank of Commerce and the Bank  of Montreal, so that its manager can be  in easy distance of both ' these great  financial institutions when he is, hard  up. ��� .      -. '. ;   .  The.fire department had a run to the  C.P.R.-s j-rivate grounds this afternoon.  The Tribune does not know whether  ���the ruu was made to dampen - the  ardour of the company's new freight  handleis or sprinkle the dust that' has  accumulated on alderman Hamilton's  private desk.  The city engineer has made the neces- ���  Bary surveys and prepared the plana for "  the preliminary work at the power station site, and is awaiting the return to  Nelson of consulting ��� engineer Riblet.  As soon as Mr.' Riblet gives. his ap.- '  proval, it is understood  tenders will be  called for the work.  The management of the Granite mine  expect/to:,-have, their   20-stamp -mill ���  running full time in a few days.-- Owing' *  to.'shortage"of   water- the"'mill'i' was ��� .  running about"half*time"; as>.there-was  not water enough to run-both the compressor plant and the mill at the same  time.   Twenty-five men are employed.  The mine and mill are six miles from  Nelson.    -  ^~ ,. ���  At the next session of the city council an effort will b'e made to. appoint an  assessor, to the end that every piece of  property in Nelson will be assessed at  its real and not its supposititious value.  Last year this work was delayed, and  the result was that tax notices'were riot  sent out until late in the year, so late  that a large percentage of the real  estate taxes for the year were unpaid  on December 31st.  Close on to a hundred-men are at  work on the Columbia & Kootenay  branch of the C.P.R. between Nelson  and Slocan Junction, a distance of 12  miles. The greater number are at  work on the new steel bridge that is  being built at the crossing of Kootenay  river.--The granite piers for the main  bridge are completed, and the finishing  touches are being. put on the last one  on the eastern approach. The steel  girders-of-one span-on���the-west-erid-  are in position.       " '���>  Mayor Rose is negotiating with  Drummond & Co. of Montreal! for a  sale of the electric power house debentures. The Montreal firm wants them  at 98, a price which the mayor considers  is too low. The debentures bear 5 per  cent interest and nin for 20 years, and  if sold at par will bring $150,000, all of  which is to be used in building a first-  class electric power plant on Kootenay  river, at a point about 10 miles distant  from the city, and immediately east of  the West Kootenay Power and Light  Company's plant.  The Rossland Miner carries a double-  column advertisement for miners and  timb'-rmen co go to California and work  for the Mountain Copper Company at  Keswick in that state. The Mountain  Copper Company has a strike on its  hands, and hopes, by advertising in the  Rossland Miner, to get some of Barney's  Mi.ssourians to come toitsaid. Machine  miners who draw $3.50 for a shift of 8  hours are not likely to quit jobs in order  to get $3 for a 10-hour shift, even if the  work is in California.  About a hundred Nelson men are  applying for licenses to prospect for  coal in East Kootenay. If their applications are granted the provincial  treasury will be the gainer by .$325,000.  As many more people, who live in  other sections of the province, are doing  tin* same thing, and it is to be presumed if they succeed they will be out  of pocket another $325,000. This means  that tlie provincial government would  realize $050,000 for the sale of 128,000  acres of land that is supposed to contain  more or less coal. Surely this is a better way of disposing of land than granting it to railways as subsidies.  \i THe   Nelson   Tribune.  It*':  J  .-���  M  5  -*���  11  BANK OF MONTREAL  Established 1817.

SATURDAY, MARCH 21, 1903  Webster defines "champerty" as an  agreement by a stranger, having otherwise no interest, with the plaintiff or  defendant in a suit, to supply money,  services, information   or evidence,. by  which to aid in maintaining and carrying on a suit in  consideration  tbat he  shall receive a part of tbe matter in  suit, as commission or otherwise, if the  party with whom   the  agreement   is  made  prevails.     About a   month ago  John Paterson of Nelson started a suit  to unseat  Chris.   Morrison from the  position   of  alderman,   a   position   to  which he was duly elected by tlie^people  ^oftlreyEasTward^f"Nelson.   In order  to start the suit Mr. Paterson had to  employ a lawyer, and in Order to get  the suit before a judge Mr. Paterson  had to deposit with the registrar of the  court a large sum of money as security  for costs should his contention not prevail.   It is to be assumed, then, that  John Paterson started the suit in his  own interest and that he paid  his own  money to the registrar of the court as  security for costs.   If he did not do all  this on his sole responsibility as   an  individual,   then   it  may be .assumed  that the suit brought to unseat Chris.  Morrison was "champerty."   It  would  be most awful to charge the lawyers  who conducted Mr. Paterson's side of  the Morrison case with  "champerty.''  But if Mr. Paterson did not start the  suit of his own accord,   and did not  individually put up the' large sum of  money deposited with the registrar of  the court for costs, who did?   If Mr.  Paterson was not prepared  to pay all  the costB if his action did not prevail,  including the costs of his own lawyer,  who was to pay them?   Where was his  lawyer to get off at if he los't the suit?  If he lost, was he to be paid by John  Paterson the sum of $416.95?   The Tribune did not insinuate that the amount  taxed off was not paid by Mr. Paterson  to his lawyer, for it must have  been,  for  so  high-toned   a   lawyer  as   Mr.  Hannington    is    would    surely   not  take a case on "spec." The publication of the bill of coses has ruffled  Mr. Paterson's lawyer, and he wants a  full retraction and apology. The Tribune, isn't making-retractions and-is  not in the habit of making an apology  for stating facts. But to. show that it is  willing to let the public know what excuses Mr. Paterson's lawyer has for  rendering a bill he didn't collect, because it was not considered a just bill  by the registrar of the court, the following letter >s printed:  Editor of The Nelson Tribune: The  article in The Nelson Tribune of 14th  'instant, headed "Are placed on record  as trying to collect a larger bill than  they, are entitled to," and the editorial  note referring to the same, are not, I  think, fair; and I ask you to do me the  justice of correcting the wrong impression which these articles must convey.  It seems to me that your intention was  to suggest that I had been guilty. of  something improper in rendering a bill  of costs which included items which  were disallowed when the bill came before the. taxing officer. Practically  every bill of costs which is submitted  for taxation contains items which, in  the opinion of the taxing officer, are  chargeable against the opposing party,  although^properly chargeable to one!,,  "ownclient. There are many charges,  also, which are allowable or not, in the  discretion of the taxing officer. His  discretion cannot be asked or exercised  unless such items are in the bill before  him. There is, therefore, nothing  wrong, that I can see, in the fact that  these costs, an drawn up, exceeded the  amount ultimately allowed against the  respondent; and your insinuation that  it is dishonest is calculated to do me  harm in my business. When you realize this, I hope you will manfully and  honorably admit your error, and publish in your next issue a full retraction  and apology.  R. W. Hannington.  Nelson, March 16th, 1903.  James Dunsmuir of Victoria, owner  of the   coal  mines at Extension and  Union,    on    Vancouver   Island,   and  Robert Jaffray of Toronto, vice-president of the  Crow's   Nest Pass   Coal  Company, owner of coal mines in Ea_t  Kootenay, have placed themselves on  record   in   newspaper   interviews    as  stating that the United States Copper  Trust is using the Western Federation  of Miners as a tool in order to curtail  the output of copper in British Columbia.   In other words, these two men  charge the miners' unions in British  Columbia with being enemies of British  Columbia.    This   is   a   most serious  charge, but no one personally acquainted with either Mr. Dunsmuir or Mr.  Jaffray will convict   the  members of  our   miner's   unions with so great a  crime  on   their  sole  evidence   alone.  These two men have strikes on their  hands,   and   both are   attempting to  mould public opinion, so that the blame  for the   strikes   will be  laid on the  shoulders of the miners'  unions.   The  Tribune has no direct   evidence that  would   refute   the   charge   made   by  Messrs.   Dunsmuir and   Jaffray; but  there is much indirect evidence against  such charges.   The  indirect   evidence  is in the shape of miners' union halls  and hospitals in the towns scattered  throughout  the    mining   districts  of  southeastern British  Columbia.   Men  who use a portion of their wages for  building halls  and   hospitals are not  likely to lend their aid to schemes that  would depreciate   the   value of their  halls and hospitals, to say nothing of  throwing   themselves  out of employment.   Apart from  this indirect evidence, it may be stated that the men  who work for wages in the mines of  British Columbia are just as loyal to  British  Columbia and just. as true to  her best interests as are men like Dunsmuir and Jaffray.   It is not the first  time such charges have been made by  large employers of labor in British  Co-  lumbia,'and for the same object, that is,  the discrediting of labor unions that are  international.      International   unions,  like the Western Federation of Miners,  the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers, the Order of Railway- Conductors, the Typographical Union, and half  a hundred others, sjre   powerful, "and  when   one of their branches or local  unions is in trouble, no matter whether  in Canada or in the "United States,  the  parent organization stands  behind it.  The stronger the parent organization,  the stronger will  be the local   branch.  The parent organization, if confined  to  Canada alone would be a weakling as  compared   with   the   present   international organizations, hence the attempt  that is being made by men  like Dunsmuir and Jaffray to discredit the  international organizations.   And  such attempts are not confined to large ,employers of labor, like  Dunsmuir and  Jaffray,  but  are   being  made  in  the  interest of political parties.  A faction of  the Libera] party in British Columbia  is attempting to foist on  tbe party as  leader a man,who is most pronounced  in   his   opposition    to    international  unions;   that  man  is  Ralph   Smith,  M. P., of Nanaimo.   The wage-earner  who^believesin-Iabor-organizations-has  foes and   enemies,   and they, are not  always employers; some of them are  politicians who pose as the special champions of the wage-earning classes.  and thousands of men have been dis-  charged and have, quit work on the  Pacific division of the Canadian Pacific  on just such an understanding. It is  up to the men to compel payment of  their wages, and a few days in jail for  contempt might do some of the officials  of the company at Vancouver a power  of good.

It is a trifle amusing to read the  declarations of the Canadian Pacific  Railway officials against the domination of foreign leaders of labor organizations, a railway whose every high  official, except one, has been imported  into Canada. Sir William VanHorne  is a Dutchman from the state of Illinois;  Sir Thomas Shaughnessy is an Irishman from Milwaukee; D. McNicoll is  from Scotland; William Whyte is an  old countryman ;��� Robert Kerr is a  Yankee from Rhode Island; chief engineer McHenry is a native of the United  States; R. Marpole is from Wales;  J. W. Troup was born in the state of  Washington; William Downie is from  Ireland. The only high official of the  Canadian Pacific Railway Company  who is a native-bred Canadian is George  McL. Brown.  Men who come into a town ! like Nelson to take jobs, and in order to hold  the jobs are fed and housed in cars in  a railway yard, must he lacking in  manliness. Nelson is one of the freest  and most independent little cities in  Canada, and never before in its history  have men working at honest employment been ashamed to meet and associate with the residents of the town.  Refusing te pay the men who have  quit its service is a piece of small business on the part of the Canadian Pacific  Railway Company. Imagine a corporation whose capital is millions of dollars  holding up a few poor devils of clerks  and freight handlers for their small  monthly salaries, simple because the  clerks and freight handlers quit work  without giving the company notice.  What kind of notices do the clerks and  freight handlers get when they displease the petty little bosses over them?  The notice is a curt, "Go to the office  and get your time!" It is a poor rule  that does not work both ways. Every  man who works for wages in the West  goes to work with the understanding  that he will be "fired"' without notice  and can quit his job without notice,  in the Kootenay Country. .V  ���yiPOND'S Hay and Stock Ranch, on theLar-  v do & Arrowhend branch of the C.P.R., six  miles from Lardo, consisting of 160 acres of  meadow, of which '60 acres are in timothy.

TIERNEY,  A  Telephone 265 Baker Street  to mind their own business; to remember that they were an advisory and riot  a ruling body; that they:had not even  as many votes as the farmers, and that  they had better lay this fool resolution  upon the table. r ���."-        I  On one other important point,  the  most important point of all, the creature disagreed AVith its creator and pre-  . vailed.  The reasons for its creation were  principally the revision.of unjust taxes,  the advising of insufficiently instructed  legislators upon special subjects within  the knowledge of the association, and  tlie settlement of labor troubles.  We have seen what happened with  regard to the two first points. When  the third came up for discussion some  , of us were paralyzed by the opposition  of certain important members'to the  admission of labor questions into the  deliberations of the association, and  others of us fairly gave up the conundrum when we seemed to gather from  Mr. Hobson that the California association had not admitted the discussion  of labor questions and yet had triumphed, especially in the allaying and  eradicating of such trouble's.'--.  At this the creature winked loudly,  and a voice we are beginning to know  , said, "Good old Hobson, but it won't  \ go," and it did not. ; The creature laid  that the settlement of labor troubles  was its peculiar province; that it: was  going down to Fernie right away ,to  settle that trouble ��� and the minister of  mines patted it on its back saying,  "Good old horse, I'll pay your exes,"  and he did..'-. -,-'���".��������� -,-- ������..:-.-.���': .->.- ..:A A.--:::'  What, then, is the net outcome of the  whole matter? We think that it is  this. Thanks to a .very whole-souled  friend of British Columbia and of mining generally (Mr. Hobson) who; being  Irish, is naturally a little florid about  his millions, the mining association has  been born, .and because it really is composed of all'classes directly and in-  ' directly connected with mining, and is  not, dependent upon votes which can  he bought for its existence, it is wonderfully representative of the people, fair  and level headed, anxious to get at facts  for itself, intolerant of gas bags and  people who want to do its thinking for  it, and being British, suspicious of those  who speak lightly of constituted authorities and precedent.    .  Altogether, we believe that it has  voiced exactly the .mind not only of the  mining classes but of those other classes  whose interests have also to be considered. We have heard what the miners  want and how far the farmers and  others consider those wants to "be  reasonable. We have threshed. put  these-matters before a body in which  the mine owners and mine workers and  the farmers have sat side by side, and  possibly, the two first may have learned  that tlie farmer would make the best  possible referee between .mine owner  and mine worker, because his prosperity depends upon the peace between  tlietn and his sympathies are as much  with the man as with the manager.  He himself is a small capitalist who  in this country must do his own work  or fail, i.e., he is man and manager.  Our success so far amounts to this:  We have formed a really representative  body of the people who in British Columbia are . interested directly or indirectly in mining; in that body we  have formed committees giving all  classes and all divisions reasonable  representation; we have elected a chairman who has our entireconfidence; we  have at our first feting punctured the  gas bag eloquent; smiled down/the unconsidered accusations of the intemperate employee; sat upon the employer who wanted to run the whole show  contrary to the wishes of those more  vitally interested than himself; turned  a deaf ear to the man who wanted to  ���make party capitalon=the=-floor=of=our  house; taught ourselves that what we  want is short speeches with merit in  them, and that what the public wants  is a spirit of level headed, absolute fair  play for all.  The world has been taught that life  is strong in the mining industry of  British Columbia: that it is quite brave  enough to look its limitations and failures in,the face and admit them; quite  hopeful enough to believe that the  remedy for them is simple and in its  own hands, and quite sufficiently experienced and intelligent to form an  adequate advisory board for legislators  who want to legislate for the country's  good.  We believe that the government realizes the value to them of the new instrument if properly used and its danger  to them if misused or neglected.  Finally, we have one word only of  suggestion to our own association.  Would the gentlemen who "have recently been in contact with the vast  aggregation of capital," and those who  have many millions of European money  behind them, as well as that gentleman  who can pour himself several millions  into Cariboo, come to stay with the  writer and bring certified cheques.

If the Vernon News voices the views  of Price Ellison, M.P.P. for East Yale,  that gentlemen is in favor of a dissolution and "an appeal to the country on  party lines.  According to the Victoria Times,  Neill of Alberni has declared he will  support the government during the  coming session. He does this to avoid  the injury, inconvenience, and-loss of  time which a dissolution at present  would involve. 7"He is," so says the  Times, "as keenas ever in his opposition  to Joseph Martin."  The action  of   the   Nelson   Liberal  Association, in turning down the Vancouver Liberal Association's efforts to  "do up'' Joseph Martin, shows clearly  that the rank and file of the Liberal  party in Nelson have no use for Mugwumps, just as the rank and file of the  Conservative party have no use for disgruntled soreheads.    The peeple in Nelson are in favor of conducting the next  provincial election on party lines,  and  have so declared themselves.   They accept Charles Wilson as leader of tlie  Conservative party and Joseph Martin  as leader of the Liberal party,  both  of  whom were chosen as leaders in regular  conventions of their respective parties.  The people like fair play, and they do  not like soreheads.   More: the people  of BritishColumbia will not brook outside interference in affairs that solely  concern the province.    While the Liberals have great faith in Laurier as  the  leader of their party in Dominion politics, they do not want Mr. Laurier or  any of his ministers  to interfere with  them in provincial politics. So with the  Conservatives.    If the disgruntled and  sorehead Conservatives and the Mugwump Liberals cannot   pull  in   party,  traces, then let them organize a party  of their own;   let them flock all  by  themselves.   No great effort would  be  made to keep them from doing so,  and  by doing so the political atmosphere  would ���be" cleared.   The  candidate of  such a party would  poll probably 100  votes in Nelson, as against 1,000 pdlled  for the candidates of the Conservative  and Liberal parties.   It is true the 100  would he the the "best people" in Nelson; but the 1,000 would be '���common"  people.   The conditions that prevail in  Nelson  prevail   in   all of   the   larger  towns and cities.   The candidates of the  Mugwumps   in  Vancouver would poll  the 200 Liberals who followHarrySenk-  Ier and E. P. Davis and Bob Kelly, and  JACOB DOVER  B��fa*-st.

In    Victoria,   a   Mugwump  ticket would be snowed under.   In New  Westmister,  the   disgruntled   element  have no strength.    In Nanaimo,   the  leader   of    the    Liberal    Mugwumps,  Ralph^Smith, M.P.,  would  be retired  for good.   In Rossland, straight party  men would rule,  as the Gaits and  the  . Sinclairs have no influence.   In the districts, like Cowichan on the Island, and  East Yale and Ymir on -the Mainland,'  the Mugwumps and soreheads are so  few that they do not count.   In  nearly  every  instance   they .are-the grafters  and place hunters who flourished  during the Turner regime,  and  now  have  no political future among the men  who  want to see a stable and progressive  government in British Columbia.
