A. D. Cartwright, Esq.,
Sec. Board of Railway Commissioners
Ottawa. Canada
Dear Sir:
I am In receipt of your favor dated October 31st, with a copy of Mr.
Moduli's report to you, afl to my
charge ol discrimination in the matter of the distribution ut cnra to the
Lumber Manulacturers of British Col
timliia I wish to say that Mr. Mc-
Caul'B report as to what I said is
correct with the exception ol his
statement that I was on my way to
attend the Lumbermen's Association
Convention, which would be a matter
of very small importance, and had
that been the case, I would have returned with Mr. McCaul to Wattsburg. T was entraped in far more
important business than that; that is
. to say, T was the iMntrate representing a large and very important district at tiie Annual Conservative Con
vention which wae held in Hevclstoke
and I havo only just returned, hence
the delay In replying to your Isvor,
and also to Mr. McCaul's request lor
further details.
Por the Information ot your Board,
I enclose you a copy ol a list of the
number ot cars weiehed at Crows
Nest, B.C. se'tiug forth the names o|
the firms, and the number of cars
weiehed lor each firm. This weighing station Is UBed by the mills
shown on the said list. There are
many other mills whose care are
weighed at various other points, the
numbers ol which T have been unable
to obtain. I wish von would make
a demand on the Canadian Pacidc
Railway Cnmpany, lor them to produce a list of the cars tor July, August, and September, weighed for the
various Lumber Mills nt Crnnbrook,
Crows Nest, aid Nelson, B.C. II
permitted I sha'l also ask your Board
to issue instructions that an official
he appointed by your Board with lull
power to make invesri'iat ons and to
subpoena witnesses, and to examine
them under oath for the purpose ol
-ascertaining the reasonB why somo
firms are supplied with an abundance
of cars and aome drms supplied with
very lew, as we are not the only people suirerlng through tMe unfair (lis
trlbutlon ol cars during times of
shortage. If your Board will be
good enough to appoint nn offlclol
with full powers as suggested, it will
hnve a very beneflclnl effect on the
lumber trnde and will be the means
of protecting mnny of the small man
ulacturere who are not in a position
to' protect themselves, or to fight
such a ponderous corporatloa as The
Canadian Pacific Hallway Company.
In making the amplication lor the appointment ol nn official for this purpose, I am perfectly willing to explain tho reasons why this lo necessary, In wrltlni', or il you prefer, I
will explain the reasons holore your
Hoard when It Bits In tho West.
On October 28th, T sent a telegram
Icopy ol which Is attached) Irom lie
velstoke to your Hoard touch ng the
motter of the dHorlmlnntlnn ot
which I claim the Canadian Pacific
Railway Company IB guilty. Bv d-
ontly IhlB had a salutnry effect unon
the Compnny, because our Proctor
Mill was supplied with more cars
Irom October 28th to November lBt,
than It could possibly get by imploring, begging or threatening, because
lor etgiht days prior to that we could
not obtain a «ln<-l« car, and during
the month only twelve cars, whereas
after tbe nppenl to your Board wo
were simply deluged with care ol
which three were loaded at once, and
Immediately niter these cars wero
loaded, a Ore broke ont and destroy
ed tho mill and a i-roat part nl the
lumber, oonn-quoutly liltoen cars
could not bo used. I morely mention
this lact ns I pronnme the Railway
Comnnnv will now rtnlm that they
supplied the care and hnd to take
thom away ogoin. However, as wo
Intend constructing more mills, we
shn'l h. in grentor need than ever ol
your Hoard's protection In the near
future, besides which a thorough Investigation along tbe lines auggeated
mny bo the means of obtaining Justice for some manufacturers who arc
not In a position to engage In combat wltb a mighty corporation, no
torious lor Its good memory In novcr
forgetting thoBe who ever dure to
criticise tho gross injustices of which
they are guilty in many different way
Kindly advise me by wire when
your Board will sit ln the We-t, and
also whether you nre prepared to
hear lurther applications, one ol
them being that all Railway Compan
lea throughout Canada shall Aie. cull
led upon'to-supply small box cars of
about the same capacity os those sup
plied in Europe and Asia, that is to
say, from six to ten tons. There is
an urgent necessity tor a large number of small cars of that kind, and
there are many reasons why thc Rail
way Companies Bhould be compelled
to supply them, and there is no reason why Canada should not be supplied with small cars, whon the same
are in use in Europe and Asia. Railway Companies are inclined to build
bigger cars than ever, thereby assisting hugh corporations, combines,
trusts and large wholesalers to the
detriment ol the small retailers, the
farmers and manufacturers. This is
the principle renson for the extraordinary difference in tbe price the producer gets for his goods and that
which the consumer hns to pay lur
them.
Further, I wish to give notice that
1 shall call the Bonrd's attention to
the fact that the Canadian Pacific
Railway Company has not fulfilled
its promises nor compiled with the
command of the Board in the matter
of the restoration of the public roads
and trails destroyed by the Company
during and alter the construction of
their railway; the officers o! the Railway Company having made a solemn
pledge to the late Mr. Justice Mabee,
Chairman of the Board, to the effect
that they would comply with every
request T made to the Board tn this
respect several years since.
Further, I shall ask tbe Board to
duly consider whether there is any
possible method whereby they can
protect the public interests in the
way of compelling the Railway Company to comply with the terms ol
their agreements wl'h the Dominion
nnd Provincial Kovernments, and to
restrain the governments of the province of British Columbia from paying the Canadian Pacific Railway
Compnny the sum ol {1,600,000.(10 oi
any other sum, until such time as
the Railway Company hus complied
with all the terms set lorth in various agreements and acts ol Parliament relating to the grantB ol land
and subsidies or any otber kind of
grants, more especially the payment
ol the |1,M0,nofl.oo to the said Rail-
was Company lor the renson tbat tho
Company has failed to comply with
the terms of ehe agreements and iiiii
not earn the grant ol lour mill on n-
cres ot land , a great quantity ol
which tbey have Bold and retained
the cash in their coders, never having earned the right to retain the
Btt'id moneys and no r eht to have
tho cash returned for the lands in
question even should thoy return the
remainder of tbe said lands to the
government of Hrliiah Columbia.
Further, I shall ask the Board to
use Its Influence in preventing tho
Canadian Pacific Railway Company
from- obtaining a further extension of
time lor the completion of the Brit
ish Columbia Southern Railway, now
known as tho Crows Nest Piisb Railway; the suid Company having obtained extensions ol time (rom Parliament in tho past when tbey were
not entitled to the same.

C. P. R. Employees Strike
Thousands are affected and business is at
standstill—Merchants are clamoring
for their goods.
Tons of Freight tied up at every station
Locul clerks and freight handlers,
employed by tUe C.I'M, went un
Btrike Monday  mui-nlng.
The Brotherhood lms a grievance
ugulnst tht. O.P.R. company and
wants the minister of Labor to act.
The minister states that the matter
iB receiving his cureful attention.
The O.P.R. refuses to arbitriite the
mutter with the men as a union.
Herewith is presented a succinct
statement of the situation:
Last week at Ottawa, at the conclusion of a canference between A. R.
Mosher, president of the Brotherhood of Railway Employees und Hon.
T. W. Crotchcrs, minister of labor,
in connection with the present strike
after listening to the representations
of the Company und the committee
of railway men, he is said to have
refused to appoint a board of arbitration and advlBcd the committee
to wait upon the Company.. But
this was objected to on the ground
that these men would be discriminated ugainst.
The strike order affected some 35
men in this city. The main issue
seems to be "The recognition of the
organization as a representative labor union; the question of increased
wages being a secondary consideration.
Information received at local headquarters is to the effect that 3,000
men are out, and that 0,000 will be
out if some arrangement is not arrived at between the men and the
Company in the next few days.
The men are willing to abide by
any decision of a conciliation hoard,
while the C.P.R. declines to do ao.
Word received at local headquarters on Prldaj morning from Mosher
at Ottawa was to the ellcct that
there was a complete tie up in every
portion of thut district and tbat the
movement was gaining ground every
day.
On Thursday night the executive of
the Cranbrook Conservative association held a meeting and passed the
following resolution.
"Be it resolved, that the members
of this association express their sym
pathy with the members of the Canadian Brotherhood of Railway Employees, and hereby desire to go on
record as willing to assist them in
their fight against the C.P.R. tor e-
qual rights with other employees of
the company.
This resolution was carried unanimously and the following telegrams
were sent to Premier Borden and the
minister of lahor at Ottawa.

The Right Hon. II. L. Borden,
Ottawa
Resolved that it is absolutely imperative that steps he taken Immediately to induce the Mil. ster of Labor to appoint a Hoard of Conciliation between the C.P.R. and the Can
udiiin Brotherhood of Railway employees now on strike. Public opinion Is with thc men.
Cranhrook  Conservative  Asst.
Up to the time of going to press no
reply had beeu received.
At   a   meeting of the Clerk's and
Freight handlers, held iu Clapp's
Hall op Tuesday, there was a representative gathering of members ol the
Cranbrook Board of Trade. Secretary HopkiiiB of the local men, presented tbe men's side of the story,
sayingthnt thoy were desirious of bet
ter conditions und recognition as a
trades union from the railway company. This the company had refused
and the minister of labor also refused to grant a board of conciliation, giving no reasons for so doing.
A resolution was passed depreciating the action of the minister, aud
requesting the Hon. T. W. Crothers,
minister of labor, to call for and appoint a commission to investigate
the grievences of the men.
Tbe following wire was sent at the
close o. rhe meeting
Hon. T. W. Crothers,
Minister of Labor,
Ottawa,
"Freight in and out of Cranbrook
absolutely tied up. The striking em
ployees undertake to return to work
it a board of conciliation be appoint
ed and be governed by it's rulings. We
urge upon you the advisability of
granting a board at once. Rush reply."
Cranbrook Board of Trade
The following is tbe answer received in reply:
Ottawa, Ont., Nov. 6, 12
To Secretary Board of Trade,
Cranbrook, B.C.
I am- to acknowledge your message
5th Instant to minister respecting C.
P. R. strike. Minister desires me to
state matter U receiving his careful
attention and contents of your message will he kept close in mind.
F. A. Ackland,
Deputy Minister of Labor
Grand President Moslier and Deputy Grand President H. A. L.
Swan, have issued the following circular letter to boards of trade of
Cnnada:
Presidents   and   Members   Boards of
Trade in Canada.
Gentlemen:
No doubt you are now aware of
the strained rotations exlstinr be.
tween the Canadian Paciiic Railway
compnny and certain of its employees, numbering about five thousand,
members of the Canadian Brotherhood of Railroad Employees, which
embraces clerks, freight handlers,
bagsraeo masters and others.
The Canadian Brotherhood of Railroad Employees is a purely Canadian
organization, and the only railroad
organization in Cnnada Incorporated
under the Dominion Stntuos and controlled solely by Canadians, having
been in exiPt-Hice since Jttflf. and in
corporate^ in 1908. They have had
a working agreement with the government railways in Canada for the
past three years, covering and embracing practically the same classes
of employees as we are now endeavoring to legislate for on the Canadian Pacific railway.
In May, 1912, n proposed agreement waB presented to the management of the Canadian Pacific Railway
company, nnd h request made for an
opportunity to have a committee of
employees discuss same with the
officials, nnd upon the above request
being ignored, the department, of labor at Ottawa was requested to appoint a hoard of conciliation under
the Industrial Disputes and Invent)
gutlon Act of 1907. The company
objected to the hoard being appo nt-
ed to Investigate thc grievances on
the grounds tnat there luul been no
direct effort to settle tbe dlsputo ou
the part of the employees, or in o-
ther words, nu dispute uxl-ited. On
the suggestion of the Honorable tbe
minister of labor, a committee of
employees from t.ie Ottawa freight
ofllce of the company secured an interview w th Mr. McNicholl, vice-
president of tbe company, in Mont
real, and as<.ed for an opportunity
to have a general committee of the
employees of the entire system meet
him; this was refused. A demand
was then made direct by the employees to the local and general superintendents of the system, but was
not successful in securing a hearing,
and the company immediately began to discriminate against tbe employees who were active in the movement, and a number were dismissed.
A second application was then made
to the honorable the minister of
labor, fur a board of conciliation,
which board has heen refused, but
the honorable the minister of labor,
has failed to point out his reasons
for such refusal.
It must he apparent to the many
boards of trade in the Dominion,
that the officers and members of the
Canadian Brotherhood of Railway
employees have exerted every effort
to bring about an amicable settle
ment uf the dispute, and to avoid a
general strike, and we communicate
with you In order to acquaint you
with the fact that as a Canadian or-
est at heart, and do most sincerely
regret that the undesirable feature
of strike is the only means now at
our disposal to obtain justice. As we
feci that both tbe department of lahor and the oliiciuls of the Canadian Pacific Railway company have refused us the privilege of placing our
grievances before fair und imc-ar'thl
tribunal tn accordance with the law.
these facts are placed before you
so thnt you will know, if a strike
takes place, it hus been forced upon
ns by the combined action uf the officials of the Canadian Pacific Railway company and the honorable the
minister of lahor.
We wish to inform the public,
through yuu, that we deeply regret
nny action that will tend to stop
the wheels of commerce in our fair
Dominion.
Yours respectfully,
A. R. Mosher,
Grand President
H. A. L. Swan,
Deputy Grand President.
Canadian   Brotherhood   of   Railway

Women Worked  Nobly
Mil! Totally Destroyed and many Thousands of
Dollars worth of Lumber at stake
Big Fire at Proctor
Proctor, B.C., Nov. 3rd—In a Are
said to be of incendiary origin, the
Wattsburg Lumber company's mill at
this place und about 800,000 feet of
lumber was destroyed early on Friday morning. Tbe loss of lumber is
covered by Insurance but the mill
was insurance
was insured for only about one-fifth
of Its cost nnd the loss will exceed
$50,000.    It is a total wreck.
The alarm was given at about 'I
o doc-; by tire whistles from the Can
adlan Pacific railway tug Valhalla
which was tying at the Blip near tbe
mill.
JtwiiB only through strenuous efforts of men living nearby, some of
whom were assisted by their wives,
that two-thirds of tho lumber stack*
cd in the yards wns saved. It. was
hy removing piles ol lumhoi so an to
make a hroak in the row's standing
on both sides of the railway siding
that nny of tho stock was saved. A
ttrong wind was blowing from the
east, carrying sparks over the lum
ber.
There is oiory renson to believe
that the blaze wns the work of a fire
bug as It originated in t!ie planning
mill which is situated some distance
from the boiler room. Nenr the plan
e.r were pilo-j .< resin dry lumber
ready to lie finished. The watchman
bad made hte usual rounds a short
time   prior    to   thc outbreak of lire
and was In the boiler room wben the
Valhalla Bounded the alarm.
Thetismes made such rapid head,
way in the dry lumber that one
could see the tire hose would be of
little use owing to the high wind
and all efforts were directed to saving the lumber.
(.rent credit is given to tbe Captain aud crew of the Valhalla and to
tin; workmen and their wives who
worked hard m shifting lumber piles,
cutting out platforms and tramways
to make a break in the continuous
rows of Inflammable material between the burning mill and other
lumber.
The sparks, however, started many
lires in the lumber yard, most of
which were put uut by the amateur
tire fighters, the women being some
of the hest workers, some of tbem
carrying three or four pieces of lumber weighing in all as much as 80
pounds.
This lire destroyed the last mill in
operation on Kootenay Inke. For
some time the mill ban been unable
to secure cars lor tbe material which
was ready for shipment but at the
time of the blaze there was an abundance nn hand and twelve more were
reported on the way to Proctor.
This supply js said to have been due
to an application made by the company to the board of railway commissioners. ***

Suit That Stirred the
Country Fifty Years
Ago in Which the
Plaintiff First Won a
tVerdict M100.000
■Baric hair, brilliant eyes, ana a delicate, peach complexion, who lived wilh her divorced sister, Mrs. Mary
Seaman, in St. Louis, on Fifth street, between Franklin avenue and Morgan street.    She  had come from
Brooklyn In 18M, when she was still under 25 years
of age; and she was better looking in her thirties
than she had bcen in her twenties.   The pen-and-ink
drawing of those days, as mado on the spot in St.
Louis, was a poor substitute for the reproductions of
photographs  now  available;  Miss  Carstang's  beauty
•was better described than pictured by her admiring
contemporaries.
Until she suddenly mado her bid for $1)0,000—an
appalling sum to claim for damages in those moderate
FT1 HE modem breach of promise suit

who can leave every one of the Ten Com-   how t0 enioy*
mandments ht little pieces and have energy
enough left over to break most of the rules of
politeness*
Veterans of both conflicts, like W. Gould
Brokaw, find that the scars a breach of promise suit leaves on a reputation heal with a delightful, surprising rapidity, such as was not
known half a century ago.
The newer, more approved practice is to
many the man and sue him afterward. Of
course, the old breach of promise suit made
his refusal to wed an essential of the proceedings; and the same reluctance now ought to be
bringing similar consequences. But either men
nowadays are easier marks, or the girls are
vtore fascinating—alimony has so generally
replaced damages*
The very scarcity of the divorce suit in
the earlier, Arcadian years of our civilization
lent to the breach of promise a sensational
prominence xvhich even the most scandalous of
modem divorces fails to surpass; and no claim'
of injured beauty for golden balm to anguished spirit has ever attracted the national
attention which was given to the Oarstang-
Shaw trial in St. Louis in i860, a romance of
the courtroom which held its own against the
excitement over slavery's abolition and the
growl of passions immediately preceding the
outbreak of the civil war*
Ho was the honored and distinguished Henry
Shaw, a sort of John Jacob Astor of the west, then
verging: on TO years of ago, who had mado hla fortune
as a merchant and had retired from business a score
of years previously.
People spoke with awe of his wealth, estimated as
between $1,500,000 and $2,000,000; of his travels, for
he had devoted much of his leisure to Europe and to
study of the old masters; of his learning, for he had
a national reputation as a botanist, although an
amateur strictly; and of his great landed estate,
for he had acquired C00 acres of St. Louts" suburbs
and made the property a splendid country residence.
With It all, he was known as the most polite man ln
St. Louli, and one of its most public-spirited citizens.
It wan the generous Henry Shaw, acclaimed for his
philanthropy, who presented to 'St. Louis a great
tract of ground In which the proud olty beheld a
future rlvul of the Jardln des Plantes of Paris.
If one can imagine a tall but tender belle of today bursting forth from a modest fiat In Harlem and
suing J. Plerpont Morgan for $50,000,300 damage*-
over breach of promise uf marriage, and coming so
close to getting it that the dignified Plerpont had
to smirch his own character to elude the vordfet,
a fair idea can be had of llie manner ln which the fair
EffiVs piiit startled, not St. Louis alone, but the whole
United States. And if the Harlem belle were to win
her verdict, as handsome Effle did, popular excitement
over the retrial of the case could not be moro intense.
Miss Carstang, once Bhe made her claim, proved herself a nifty, two-handed lighter, witli staying powers
that would have shamed Mr. Jeffries at the time of
his encounter with Mr. Johnson. But in the suave,
elegant, excessively courteous Henry Shaw she
caught the toughest old Tartar any adventurer ever
picked up for an easy mark. Her idea that lie was such
a gentlemanly old mollycoddle that he would mako
any sacrifice to savo his reputation failed to take
into account the fact that Henry Shaw made his
million between 1820 and 1810, and In St. Louis, too.
It required a good deal of a man, with plenty of nasty
disposition, to take $1,000,000 away from such a
pioneer community in those days, when competition
hadn't learned the methods of the boycott or tho
trusts and was inclined hastily to use the handiest
tomahawk or bowfe. No amount of European effete-
ness could quite take the temper out of those tough
old blades.
WOMAN WON AT FIRST
The original trial, which occurred In 1859, went
against Mr. Shaw with all tiie unanimity of a gallant
American Jury of strictly democratic Instincts, who
sympathized from the jump with a lovely and distressed female whoso heart, as any of the dozen could
see with half an eye, was worth tho $100,000 she
asked, and probably all the jury could beg:, borrow
or Bteal, to boot. Most of them would have given
twico that for the heart In question, damaged as it
was, and no Questions asked. As for Mr. Shaw—well,
every white man knew nobody could rake In nearly
$2,000,000 without skinning; somo one; so why not
give the poor, trusting1 girl he hnd deceived every
red cent she wanted? Europe, and the sense of his
own dignity, had tnken out of the millionaire's defense a good deal of the backbone required to hraco
It up. Miss Carstang's calculation had been shrewd
enough.
But tho notoriety of the trial had been so groat,
and tho opprobrium lt attached to Mr. Shaw had been
so disgraceful, especially when the jury gave tlio full
verdict against htm. that he realized he bad gained
nothing but universal contempt as a man of wealth
and Influence who had deceived an innocent, trusting
woman. He would probably have encountered less
condemnation lf he had appeared ln tho light of an
aged profligate who had been Oe
fui  hussy.
ThCBt*. were really the two horns of his dilemma,
peculiarly painful to a man of Henry Shaw's position and sense of personal dignity, and he bad, at
first, chosen tho haughty dental of a citizen of standing and respectability as his defense against the essential nverment mado by tho aHtuto EfflO. He knew, and
he knew that sho knew, that neither of them, at
any stage of their acquaintance, liad regarded
her aa worthy of tho honor of marriage; and he
relied on this very real fact to heroine apparent from
tho opposing statements they must make on thc witness stand. Uut Efllc wanted that $100,000 very
badly Indeed; she had personally conducted the quest
of her attorneys for every scrap of ovldeiico which
could possibly bear on the claims; sbo had played all
the arts of a beautiful, injured woman upon a jury
composed of average   and normally suseeptlblo men.
Even one woman, on that Jury, might havo been
fatal to her »ause. But they wero nil men, and tho
'verdict showed Millionaire Khaw that all his money
nnd station, all his respectability and philanthropy,
had not protected him In tho eyes of the community
v.iioso opinion tbo jury fairly represented. The first
round, carried through at whirlwind speed, had ended
In a clear knockout for the heartbroken damsel.
But the law counts timo .slowly, and Mr. Shaw had
amplo opportunity to sit up, think it over, and
mako up his mind that he might as well be hung for
a sheep as for a lamb. JI Is defeat had bcen u. mistake
of judgment; not because he wus, in any sense, a
quitter. Ho belonged to the sturdy old breed to which
blackmail is as a red rag.
He fought off collection of pretty Efflo's verdict,
and fought on for a new trial until he got It. Tho
whole country had been primed in interest by the
piquant features of tho first one, and it waH now
promised that tho evidence produced at tho second
would reach stages nearly unprintable—and therefore
sure to be printed.
Efilo put her sister on the slam, and that lady
sworo to the old gentleman's visits, his succession of
gifts, his presentation of a piano to Eflle, his refer-
ences to their coming marriage—to everything, in fact,
which a sister might be expected to learn of the
romance that had como into the llfo of her near relative and constant companion. She denied, as emphatically, the questions of the lawyers regarding
visits that had been made by Efflo to Mr. Shaw's horn**,
visits thnt wero said to havo lasted over nights, and
without any chaperon but tho old millionaire himself.
The two women brought up their servant girl to
swear to Shaw's devotion; and t;■*? servant obligingly
swore, but let out the detail of her own surprise when
Eflle told her she had landed bim for marriage.-because shf Imagined all along that, .-.die was going to
marry a younger man named Homes.
It wan apparent now that Shnw. aroused nl last,
wus out for all the trouble any one In St. Louis cared
to produce. Mia attorneys, dining tin- cross-examlna-
tlon of tho sister, had carried Inquisition so fnr thai
they mnde her admit lur husband's slflter hul borne
nn illegitimate child, an aspersion which
view  of  most  cordial  partisans  of Mr.
n Id
have only a remote bearing on the character of that
child's iuint-i)i-law  sinister.
Bul, with the opening of the defense, the positive
testimony as to tlio character - 'lie two slstcri came
thick and fast, A number of witnesses were pul on
tho stand to prove their unsavory reputation; nn
earlier blackmail affair, In which Judge Ivy, prominent in his dny, was concerned, was referred t". ihu
contention was mnde. thai Eltlo lunl herself sought
the acquaintance, of the millionaire, undo pretensi ot
an appeal foi- help against a rapacious landlord, for
the express purpose of entrapping hint; and, us oni
special correspondent on the spot put ll after Hit-
three weeks' trial ended, "if there was any .lei" '■•■-
dice to bo placed in human testimony, MisM Efflo won,
and had been for twenty years past, an Intriguante
und adventurer of the most dangerous type."
Verdict, accordingly, for tho defendant. -Ami so,
Henry Shaw, millionaire, philanthropist! genth mnn
nnd scholar, saved his $100,000, rebuked Impudent
blackmail and furnished this country one «-r its
earliest and most scandalous examples nf a distinguished citizen tumbling off his perch of honor Into
the shame of private vlco.

Taft was In the hands of his friends,
the inonied power of the United
States.
Colonel Roosevelt was called into
ibe political arena by the most progressive republicans ol the Grand old
Patty, wbo could [plainly see the writ
ng on the wall- the Mure and certain
tlofoat ..I Toft At Chicago they
tried to Htem the tide, hut the bIuIcqi
of Wull Btrool were turned loose and
rent tho old party in twain, and Its
possible extinction with the birth of
a new party.
The elections of Tuesday reminds
us of tho birth of the Republican party ui ik'.i,. At a national organUa*
tlon, held in Phtlndelph n on dune 1&.
181.6. The convent! n was composed
of delegates selected under a call of
Aide spreading character, similar to
that which took plnce at Chicago. U
Invited to its counsels all who op-
p. sert the extension of slavery, as did
the Chicago convoat'nn those who op
pdsed the steillng ol tbe Chicago
convention by Wall Street.
This convention of 185C completed
■ tn work hy nominating John 0, Ifre-
nont, "Tie pnthflnd -. ' and William
Daytnn, as presldenl and vlce-
iresldont. The lie uocrnts in enliven
tlon nominated .1 nines Buchanan and
lohn c Pr 'che ir| 1 -, nd tho Amci--
r ui or ''Know-nothing" party nominated Millard Fillmore and A .1.
Donaldson.
The political tight iii 1888 was much
the same aB tbe mutest on Tuesday
It was the l nlted Democrat party a-
■must the American or "Know No
tiung" party split on the tiuesthm
ol fdnveiy and its extension.
The result ol the election ol is5G
was very similar \o tlmt ol 1918. Tho
Democrats carried 19 states, the Republicans ll states, and the Old A-
menciui I. Buchanan had 174 electoral votes. Fremont LU, Fillmore 8,
.\s in thc recent election bad Taft
been out ol thc running the new party, Republicans, in L886 would have
won the field. It was In I860 that
the Republican convention met In
Chicago and nominated Abraham. Lin
coin .md Hnniiml Hamlin. Thus
was the Grand Old Republican Party
rated ind w th two exceptions, victory bas perched on us banner for .">0
fears. The question now before tbe
l m people Is "Has the shame
less and disgraceful methods ol the
Taft combination at Ch cago brought
to life and existence a new party
that m four years from today wiil
control the destinies of the United
States.
The Progressive party at Chicago
toss Theodore Roosevelt aa its stan
dard bearer, one of the most succes-
ful and popular statesmen of the day
ind associated with hlra on the progressive ticket was Govenor Hiram
Johnson, ol California, The Campaign was able and emphatic. The
Progressives of today made a pheno-
mtnal tight as did tho Republicans of
1866. Will History repeat itself?
and will the Progressives of 1912 be
the predominating party in the United States in four years, is what thc
electorate of that country has to con
sidcr.
»   •   •   •
tn lS.ritj the Republican party was
formed, the political wave started
on tbe Pacilic coast and reached tbe
Atlantic coast in 1860. The progressive party has started in the
same wny, at the same point und
will   be   the   dominant party in the
States in 1916.

Free Trade *Hirits" in Canada are
rejoicing at the election of Governor
Wilson. "Birds of a Feather" rejoice together—but Its dollars to
cents that no radical changes will be
mude   in   the States to thu south by
the Democrats.

If Senator LaFollette had played
the polit cat game as he should, he
would have been the Progressive
candidate in 1916. As it is he got
grouchy, played "the dog ln the manger" and is no longer a factor in
national politics   n the States.

lo a man's feet when standing: when
the man was mounted it lay on the
back of his horse. In former times
a mnu could not deck his leggings or
shirt with a fringe of hair, except by
the consent of the warriors. Honors had to he counted on the strands
of hair if, on the feathers used in
making the wnr bonnet, therefore
each lock or tuft of the fringe stood
for a war honor, and no honor could

Aged With Waiting
Algy had promised to take his best
girl for a drive, and had been round
the various livery stables in the town
with the Idea ot hiring a horse and
r!g.
Unfortunntely. all the horses wero
engaged, except one exceedingly
shaky, broken-down veteran. Rather
than disappoint his girl, Algy hired
the animal, and drove It round to the
resl lence of his beloved.
lie rang tho bell, and told the servant to toll her mistress that he wn
ready for her. Tho answer came
hack that she would bo down In u

After 1 full hour's wait the fa'r
lady appeared. Sho looked at tbo
horse, and then she looked at Al;;,-.
Sir, she cried Indignantly, 1 refuse

What do you think of this scheme
of having tbe countries exchange children?
What'B the idea?
An English family, for Instance, exchanges children for a couple ot years
with a German family. Thus both
sets of children get a, chance to learn
another language. References are
exchanged and all that sort of thing;
It's an elegant scheme. My neighbors have a kid that I would llko to
see exchanged with some family ln

Two of tho more Impressive sights
of a railroad grading camp are the
marvellous alacrity of the men in responding to the call for dinner and
their unparalleled quickness in wrapping themselves around their grub.
During construction ot tbe new lines
of tho Louisville & Nashville ln Kentucky an old farmer furnished ono
of the graling camps with vegetables.
He often arrived at the campp at meal
time and was always greatly impressed with thc voracity of the men. The
work was hard aud when the call for
dinner was given every man made a
rush for the table and the food disappeared in quick time. One day
a workman on his way to the tablo
tripped ou tho root of a tree and fell.
Ho lay all sprawled out, making no
attempt to rise. The farmer ln
great concern rushed to him. Are
you hurt, are you hurt? ho asked
anxiously. No, answered the man.
Well, why don't you got up and go
to dinner? No use, returned the
