Their action was taken against the Rossland Miners' Union for damages for loss sustained through the strike, and a jury not only found for the mine owners but assessed the damages at the con siderable sum of $12,500. The case was tried by Justice Duff and his instructions to the jury -will probably find a place in legal authorities which have to bear on labor matters. "There are," said the judge, "some observations that I think I ought to make to indicate the general grounds on which the right of persons making such a claim as the plaintiff's in this action must rest, if the claim is to be sustained. The law protects every man in the disposition of his capital or his labor according to his best judgment. That is a legal right which, how ever, is limited by his correlative duty not to interfere with the legal right of others. That is to say that every man's right to do as he pleases with his own is limited by the right of others to do as they like with their own. While the law protects a man in this way, his right to dispose of his capital, skill or labor necessarily involves the proposition that he does not employ unlawful means in prosecuting his right. "Now there is the question of the right of workingmen to combine for their own benefit and to strike in order to enforce their demands. You are not to regard a strike as unlawful in itself. There is nothing to prevent a number of men agreeing among one another that they will refuse to work for any reason that they sec fit to act upon. There is nothing to prevent them from agreeing that in a certain eventuality they will withdraw from work, nor in acting upon that agreement. That is the legitimate exercise of their right to dispose of their labor as they please, providing only that they do not thereby break a contract. "There are certain things sometimes done in connection with a strike which the law declares to be criminal, and if you find that these things were agreed upon to be done and were done, and that the plaintiffs suffered pecu niary damage thereby, that alone will be quite sufficient to sustain this action. The unlawful acts referred to are such as following a man about in a disorderly manner, besetting anyone at his house, intimidating people, be setting the path along which the men would go to work with the object of preventing them from proceeding, and so on. The elements of these offences is that they are done with a certain view, namely to compel somebody to do something he should not do, or to prevent him from doing something that he should do." - " Concluding Justice Duff said: "It is not for you or for me to consider the result of the judgment. Our duty simply is to administer the law. And it is because our courts, under the British crown, do administer the law with out consideration of after results, that the administration of justice through out the British Empire is such that we are all proud of." The damages, fixed by the jury at $12,500 have been assessed against the Western Federation of Miners' the Carpenters' and Joiners' Union, and tho different officers of these bodies. While the amount of the verdict is not large the case probably establishes a precedent which will be" much quoted in future cases. -- ? Our Reputation X For fie nt ally driven home by the intense heat, but when he protests against it lie is nearly always laughed at and more than half disbelieved, for not one man in a hundred on the mainland has any other opinion than that Hawaii is hotter than any city on the mainland. There is a chance for the promotion committee to do some good educational work along these lines. Hawaii is "in the tropics." That is enough for the average mainland citi zen. Being in the tropics, Honolulu must be a hot place and when an Eastern er hears a Honolulu man complaining of St. Louis, or Chicago, or New York, he is sure to reply that it must be much worse in Honolulu. Usually people from Hawaii find it impossible to convince the Easterner. Yet'it is a fact that many of the summer visitors to the mainland from Hawaii are literally driven to shortening their visits by the heat of Eastern cities. Among those who have visited the fair this year from Hawaii, a number have failed to stop and see it anything like in detail, simply because they found the climate too hot. Nevertheless nine out of every ten men In St. Louis if told by a Honolulan that things were hot would wipe perspiring brows and remark that the weather must be terrible in Honolulu, where of course, it got much hotter. During the past few days we have been having one of our brief interrup tions of the trade winds, resulting in unusually humid atmosphere and gen eral complaints about the heat. Yet the thermometer only climbs to eighty two, or a degree higher. Our hot midsummer days find us all complaining at eighty-five, though there is nearly always a stiff ocean breeze. It is not to be wondered at that people accustomed to such climate should have a com plaint to make at the heat of some of the mainland locations. The Pacific coast has been having a hot wave. In Fresno on July 21 a hundred and eight degrees in the shade was the record, and the wave moved up north with varying intensity, reaching as high as ninety in the shade in Seattle, in the official records, while many a private thermometer went up to half a dozen degrees higher. The idea that in Hawaii, "in the tropics," the mid-day temperature was at least ten degrees less would simply have been spurned on every hand. The federal weather bureau will do some service in correcting the general misapprehension as to our climate. Its observations will be sent to the mainland with other official records, and they will be widely published. A great many people do not read such records, however, and it would be well for the Promotion Committee to make the advertisement of temperature records one of the features of Its work. In the matter of climate there are few if any places in the world that can compete with Hawaii. Unquestion ably a serious injury to us is done by the universal Impression that the .$ 8.oo . 13.00 Advance. Manager.

Recommended by the Medical Pro fession. THE WARAl WEATHER TONIC 111 I FORT STUEET islands are always sweltering In tropi cal heat. The California farmer, pitch ing hay at a hundred and eight in the shade and all records lost sight of in the sun, still thinks his? lines are cast in easier places than those of his broth er in "tropical Hawaii," and If the Idea of emigrating to Hawaii as a settler ver enters his head, one of the first objections to rise in his mind is that he probably couldn't Stand the heat. Intending settlers on our farming lands all harbor this objection. Tourists think of It In making up their routes. They will go to Southern California', which Is often hot enough to drive a Honolulu man home, but when Hawaii Is proposed they gravely wonder If they can stand the heat. Doubtless thou sands of people have been kept away from the islands by tho reputation Ha waii has for tropical heat. It Is well to do all we can therefore, to spread the truth, and there is no better time than when a large part of the great Ameri can continent is baking in a heat that causes real suffering and. In many eases, sudden death. The British House of Commons re cently discussed a proposition to con vert Great 'Britain's existing board of tmdk) lnto a "Department (of Com merce," and to make the chlefshlp a cabinet position. A commission ap pointed to consider the proposed change has reported recommending it. One of the Immediate results will be a very considerable addition to the salary of the chief of the board. It Is now about $10,000 nnd the proposed salary Is $25, 000. Some one suggested that the se cretary he a merchant. Gerald Balfour combated this Idea, and said that If one followed such a line of reasoning Great Britain logically ought to have a sailor at the head of the navy and a soldier at the head of the army, an ar rangement the nation has persistently refused to make. This may not be logical, but It accords with the facts. The change contemplated will lead to a reform that, according to Gerald Bal four is very much needed and will prove of great practical value. During the discussion it wna argued that In future tho consuls, although entirely depen dent upon the Foreign Oillce, ought to report directly "both to the Department of State and to the Department of Com merce.
