Vancouver, 11. C, July 4. After all
tho talk of settlement, things wore

Tho miners are more bitter than eve.

nasault that has marked tho strike Las
occurred. Danlol Alexandor, an Ital
ian minor, who votod to go to work
when thn matter was under dlccuiilon,
waa frightfully maltreat! by two oth
er Italians, who ot upon him at 4
o'c'ock in tho morning. Tho two at
tacked Alexander with hands, teeth
and feet, and lie was a sorry bight
when they got through.

showing In other forma, one of which
led to tho resignation of Hmauol Mot
tlihaw, secretary of tho local minora'
union. It ia stated that Mottithnw,
who waa nctlvo in tho atrlko, found
the opposition so hitter that, rather
than bo mixed up in It any longer, ho

Thero is llttlo doubt that tho two fac

CANT BE BLUFFED
PRESIDENT ROOSEVELT WILL SEND
JEW NOTE TO CZAR.
Delay Is Not on Ilia Part-Petitioners
ur Tardy In Sending In the Paper
United Stntca Will Nut He.ltatc to
(live llxprcsslon to Indlgnntlnn Over
Washington, July 3, Tho itosltlon
of tho administration regarding tho
iioK)aol transmission of thu petition
of tho Jewish iltl-ena of the United
Htatea to tho Ituislati government was
made clear and poiltlvn by n statement
Issued by thu atnte department tonight.
This statement waa Inspired by news
paper publications rellectlng tho nttl
ttnlo of tho Kusslan government In thu
tvent of tho pietoutntlon of surli n x
tltlnii through tho medium of the
United Hiatus embassy at Ht. Peters
burg, which had been brought to the
attention of high officers of tho govern
ment. It waa given very careful con
sideration both hero mid at Oyster
Hay, before n decision waa reached to
iiiako any declaration regarding tho
natter. Tho statement la at follows:
"At tho statu department it was
ntatod ny n high official, In thn nbsomo
of Hecretarv Hay, that tlm dnlay in
forwarding tlm petition of tho Ameri
can oltUena of the Jewish faith as to
the III treatment ol thutrro-rellglonltts
In Hussln wna solely due to tho delay
in furnlshlnir thu address to thu state
department by tho petitioners. Tho
statu department wnuhL.oi course, pay
no heed to any statement puriKirtiug
to emanate from tho Itusslau gcvurn
innnt tiulona such atatomont was made
officially in soino form or other to our
" Tho state department lias been es
pecially careful to act only In arcord
nnco with all requirements of official
propriety, hut within tho limits (litis
laid down It will most certainly not
hesitate to glvo expression to thu deep
sympathy felt, not onlyby tho admin
istration, but hyait'thittAmirlcari wc
pie, fur the unfortunate Jews who had
iieon the victims In tho recent appall
ing massacres and outragus."
In this connection it waa pointed out
by another officii!, who disclaimed any
purpom to sjwAk In lilsolllcisl capacity,
that it seemed lomnwhut strange, to
say tho least, that tho Itusslau govern
incut should chooM this rtlcular
method of making a statement to the
American ntoplo nt the very time
when, by methods which am certainly
the loverso of friendly to tho United
states, it sought to Induce China to
break tho plighted faith of all the pow
ers as to tho open door In Manchuria
and has endeavored to bar our people
from acoeaa to thu Mnnchurlan Irado.
No Hope Now for Men lintombed In W

entoiulted minors haa been Abandoned.
Tho startling atatement was made to

thnso working liolow the surface, nro
now confined to tho work of walling up
thu untrles nnd slopo, and putting up
flroporof bnrrlers which will prevent
thu llamos from reaching tho 17th and
other levels n"uvo. This Is taaen as
on Indication that tho rescuers roallto
the frnltlossness of further attempts to
reach thaontoinbed miners below tho
Added to tho horrors of tho flro,
which will doubtless destroy tho un
derground working!, Is thu danger of
anotlior explosion, which may occur at
any tlmo. Tho situation Is decldodly
gravo, and thn citizens are becoming
alarmed for tho safety of thoao whu nro
working tiolow tho surfaco, nnd also
thoso uugngod in hauling away tho da
brio from tho month of tho slope, If
tho ontrlos in which th) flro Is burning
can bo succeBsfully walled and tho fire
confined to a few entries, thorn will bo
llttlo to fear, hut thero Is grout danger
of tho (lames breaking through Into tho
