Hosmer Mines, June 30- The officers
of the Western Coat operators' association and of the United Mine Work
ers of America met here at noon today and signed an agreement which
w:ll send buck to work the miners at
Cunmore, Lcthbridge, Royal, Leitch,
! interest, Uellevue, Lille, Coleman
and  Hosmer .Mines immediately.
The agreement completed today is
the agreement which wus negotiated
it Macleod in March last and carries
with it the open shop, both parties
ugreeing that there shall be no discrimination either by the companies
or the men against union or non un
ion men.
After three months of idleness anil
the ioss to the workmen of at least
half u million dollars in wages, with
its attendant loss to the operators
and the public, the miners resume
work on the same terms which were
offered by the operators and accepted
by the men in March last but reject
ed by Frank Sherman, who forced the
strike nt a time when nil interested
expected pence. The atmosphere has,
however, been cleared and it is expected that industrial peace will pie-
vail in the coal mining centres of
eastern British Columbia and West
em Alberta for tbe next swo years.

popularity of the train robbing habit
would not be so great. The whole
episode id his escape wears a most
suspicious aspect, and this new holdup serves to emphasize it. Tbe circumstances in connection with the
British Columbia end of the escape
were most extraordinary, the looseness of the prison discipline, the indulgence extended to so desperate a
criminal, the irregular interviews he
was allowed to hold, the way in
which his escape was prepared by allowing him to grow bis hair and his
mustache, the strange delay tu notifying Ottawa, all have a most unfortunate, not to say sinister aspect.

The Premier. Hon Richard McBride, visited Cranbrook on Tuesday
nnd was tendered u reception and
smoker in the auditorium in the evening.
The visit of the premier constituted
the notable event of the week. Mr.
McBride and the Hon. Tims. Taylor,
minister of lands and works, has
been making an inspection of the various ridings for the purpose ot acquiring a more intimate knowledge of
the actual needs of the various districts. Unfortunately Mr. Taylor
was unable to accompany Mr. Me
Bride to Cranbrook.
Tbo party reached Cranbrook after
having visited Golden, coming down
through the upper Columbia and tho
Kootenay valleys in Mr. V. Hyde
Baker's White Steamer, and thoroughly enjoyed the trip through the
most picturesque ..and fertile portion
of British Columbia.
A number of citizens were in waiting and enthusiastically greeted Mr.
McBride upon his nrrival.
At 8.30 over 400 citizens .gathered
at the auditorium to meet the pre
mier, nnd no expense was spared by
the citizens of Cranbrook to make,
the premier's reception an enthusiast
ic one. The Cranbrook orchestra was
in attendance, and the gathering was
n credit to Cranbrook, as not alone
were the best people of the city present, hut Liberals were almost ns
strongly in evidence as tlie Conserva
tives, each party sinking party con
federations to show honor and re
spect to the premier statesman of the
great province, of British Columbia.

The saint nt the -'i.t Liberal partj
breathed  in  that  letter    The nppo-i

■rnctici rlbing    coiistitueticies
i It pub i> wi : ts It endemned ex-
travatrance The Liberal party had
teen in power for thirteen years. For
ear alter year the public accounts
committee has uncovered evidences ni
wild extravagances, i>ne auditor geu-
•ral who protested was forced to re-
.iirn office His successor has already
ip*-i-me obnoxious, The expenditure
uis mounted hither and tux:her. A
'ommission appointed ti> investigate
the civil seme* took a look at the
marine department with terriiylnii re-
-alts to the party loyalists.
The patronage system, with all the
-ottenncss it begets, has been kept in
orce. The sneaker of the house ol
■iiiiiniHiis has won his place through
'be systematic bribery <>i Bonaven-
ture with public money, The postmas
ei genernt held out a town clock as
. bribe tu Waterloo, and the minister
if justice, tbe successor of Sir Olivei
Vlowut, has hetMin the edifying task
of building a canal at Newmarket
which cannot be tilled with water and
which, if it could, would be of no
ommerclnl valley to Newmarket or
the country.
Mr. Hrodeur, whose tiresome mis-
■imnngetnent of the marine depart-
nent brought it to disaster, and for
vhom it was necessary to apologise
from every Liberal platform during
i he late campaign, is still in office
■njoyinu tbe favor of his chief to
4iich a marvellous extent that there
are whispers of nn imperial decoration, Mr. Pugsley, the minister ot
public works, has been condemned by
a commission, rather lenient than
were, of culpable negligence in the
iiindliug of bilge sums of public mon-
>y in New Brunswick. He defended
himself ia parliament by a speech
which fairly bristled with mis state
ments and perversions of the facts.
Vet, although his record is so tiDsat-
sfactory, bis eminent leader, to who
Sir Oliver Mowat's letter was addressed, says that he is prouder of
Ir.   Pugsley than ever.
There has been no revision or the
decalogue since 1S96. There has been
n<> suspension of the ordinary principles of ethics, commercial and political Vet the state of the federal
government is *«. fur from its pre-el-
ectlon pledges and professions that
ordinary Liberals outside the official
rankn must be greatly distressed.
Then- is m, iloiibt that the Liberalism
ol Su uliver Mnwat was worthy of
the support of an honest man. There
In  th- gravest     doubt  If any honest
ti an  approve  ot  thr  jobbery  and
cynical extravagance oi this arrogant
hand "I heaven born statesmen, who

Will Last a Lifetime.
CARGO MAGNETIC RAZORS have revolutionized razor miking    thev .ire TEMPERED BV ELECTRICITY, which is
OUR OWN EXCLUSIVE SECRET PROCESS   the steel   used in   their manufacture   is  oi   the fineit   English and
Swedish make.    This wonderful discovery is the result ot vcars ot experiment and study, and at last there has been
produced a razor that will shave any beard, NO MATTER HOW TOUGH.
ELECTRIC TEMPERING addi CARBON to the steel: whereas tempering by fire, ithe only other method known for
centuries) DESTROYS the CARBON which is the life of steel.   All other makes of racors must be HONED   AND   GROUND
olten, as their blades will NOT hold an edge any length ot time.   CARBO MAGNETIC RAZORS do not require HONING
or GRINDING during a   lifetime in  private use;  they are  all  tempered   alike, every   part ol their blades being  subjected to
METHOD, the most expensive grinding known.
YOUR DEALER will deliver to you one of these CARBO MAGNETIC RAZORS on 30 days' trial, without
obligation on your part to purchase—take advantage of this opportunity. Break away from the barber habit! You will save
$■30.00 annually.
Call on our representatives in your town, and request a copy of "Hints On Shaving"—This booklet illustrates the
correct razor position for shaving every part of the face (ACTUAL PHOTOGRAPHS TAKEN FROM LIFE)—It alio tells
you HOW TO STROP A RAZOR PROPERLY; should our dealer be jut of them, drop us a card, and we will send you
one by return mail.
