WashInRton D. C. Sept. 3 —Labor
Commissioner Wright has tiled a lengthy report with the department covering bis Investigations Into Llie anthracite stril'i'
In the course ol his report Commla-
slouei Wright says that the lacls seem
to show that tue officers of tin- miner*,'
unions, with perhaps one or two exceptions, peialsleutly opposed tlie present
strike on the ground that It wouid possibly last all Miinnier, aud entail great
hardship aud sneering upon the mine
workers, as well as work incalculable
Injury to the Industrial Interests of tbe
country. Thoy alio believed that nuuy
of the alleged wrongs endured by the
miners might be corrected by appeals
to their employers. Tbis attempt, bow-
ever, to secure .conferences between
the representatives of the mine work-
era and tbe mine operators proved fruit'
less, and the miners themselves decided
that a strike should be organized.
Nearly all tbe operators have no confidence la the ability ol the miners' union to control Ua own members to such
a degree as to assist iu maintaining
proper discipline, Some of the operators aud some uf tbe union i Ulcers be
lieve that no great progress will be
made toward more peaceful conditions
In the miue regions until the anthracite
workers have a union of ihelr own. All
of the operators whom Mr. Wright met
disclaimed distinctly that they bad any
antagonism to labor unions aa such.
They did object, and most seriously, to
some of the methods adopted by the unions, and they felt that wheu asked to
make a contract with the unions the
latter should put themselves In a position to be pecuniarily responsible for
carrying out such contracts.
The specific demand of the union that
where miners are paid by weight, 3240
pounds shall constitute a ton of coal
represents a long standing difficulty.
Wben it Is shown that a ton of coal,
says Mr. Wright, contains a varying
petcentage of refuse as it comes from
the mine, It Is dtfthult to see tbe force
of the argument why It should uot be
weighed, aud the miner paid for the
work he dots. At least, thc operators,
he thinks, ought to share in the loss of
labor In mining Impurities. Tbe demand of the miners that wages be In*
creased 10 per cent In tbe rates per ton
to  those  men who perform   contract
work and   10   per   cant rs-lualion In tlie
time of those wbo work by tbe day is
backed by the statement that after the
increase wblch was granted In 1900, the
prices of all commodities in the mining
region were advanced accordingly
They urge that It Is exceedingly diffl-
cult for them to live properly on their
present wages.
The operators meet this demand with
the statement that they are able to
market only 00 per cent of the capacity
of their mines, and lhat the Increase ot
10 per cent In wages which the meu
demand would mean about 10 cents a
ton increase.
The   Increase   In   Cranbrook's   Population
Mikes ll Necessary.
The steady growth  ot   Crauhrook  is
evidenced by the increase  in the number of school children.    Although there
are now three looms they areinadequate
to meet the increased  demand for room
and the following letter wlllpiuve pleasing news to the people of tbis towu:

The -Gold Kerf Un Upper Perry
A Company Formed to Work Bed
Of Perry Creek With
Steam Shovel.
H. W. Ross, the man who has secured
tbe property at tbe head of Hell Ruining creek over which much interest has
been manifested of late, was in town
one day last week and the opportunity
was improved to get some filrst-handed
information about the strike.
When asked If he could confirm tbe
stories in circulation be modestly replied that he could not be responsible
for general reports and that some allowance should be made in such matters.
"Mines naturally enthuse people, you
kuow," he remarked.
He said that the property could hardly be called a "strike" for the reason
that it was discovered over two years
ago, but that it is a fact that but little
has been kuown of it until recently.
When Mr. Ross was shown a piece of
quartz upon which there is considerable
gold aud asked If it came from the property iu which he is interested, he Bald
that it did.
"How much of such ore is there in
sight?" was asked.
"I cannot tell at present. The portion of the vein from where that came
is almost inaccessible. The only way of
reaching it is by ropes. That piece of
ore probably came from a boulder at tbe
bottom of the cliff some distauce from
the vein.''
"Is there much such float?"
"Yes, but even that isdifficult to reach
on account of the steepuess of the hill
and a rock slide that has covered much
ofthe ore"
When asked aa to the character of the
vela be anld;
"It is a true fissure of great strength
tbat can be distinctly traced for over a
mile, but It does not come to the surface
at all places. At intervals, however,
there appear to be strong oresboots; and
at ■, places tbe ore-bearing material is
twenty feet wide. Tbe vein contains a
great variety of material. Tbe gauge
ls mostly quartz and spar, and the value
carrying materials are grey copper, iron
aud copper sulphide, chloride oi silver
aud some galena."
He tbe showed specimens of white
quartz in which no values were discernible to tbe unpractised eye, but he pointed out peculiar crystals which he said
were rich in silver. He also had with
hime some fine specimens of gray copper,
Mr. Ross says that his discovery of
the property in tbe hands of .several persons is an anomaly iu the history of
mining. He says that tbecoloringupon
the rocks caused by the oxidization of
the minerals makes the vein noticable
for a long distance, aud that when be
reached the foot of the rock slide he
broke up chunks of quar z out of which
he picked pieces rich iu gold. Vet.
while he was there some of tbe owners
were upon the ground with experts to
advise them whether or not the property was worth doing assessment work
upon, which they concluded was not,
Later Mr. Ross purchased their interest
for a nominal consideration aud paid the
amount of the assessment in lieu of
work. *
In speaking of the district generally
Mr. Ross gives it as his opinion that
there are great possibilities forrtbat section; tbat there is a vast unexplored
region to the northwest In line of tbe
recent strike, uud that a number of prospectors are already iu there. Tbe character of the ore is entirely new in tbe
Kootenays and it is not likely that tbis
is ru isolated instance of its occurrence.
There is something about Mr. Ross
tbat impresses oue with bis alertness
at mining aud also tbat he is entirely
practical in bis methods.
He says tbat tbe first thing to be done
up there will be to survey the claims for
crown grant aud after that some pl.ui
of development will be decided upon,
His business in town was to talk with
Mr. Killeeu, provincial inspector of
roads, and see what could be done
toward improving the road and trail up
Perry creek.
Will Work the Bed of Perry Creek Wllh a
Steam Shovel.
Albert Banks, the well known placer
miner of Perry creek, will introduce a
new scheme for placer mining lu tbe
bed of that fatuous stream. He has
formed a company, in which Fobs &
McDonell, the contractors, are among
the leaders, and they will Introduce a
steam shovel to handle tbe gravel. The
rock at d gravel will be dumped on grU-
leys and the liner stuff be sifted through
to the sluice boxes. By the use of the
steam shovel it will be possible to bau-
tile from 1500 to jouo yards of gravel a
day. The company has three nnd one
half miles uf ground to work and the
machluery is now ou lhe way here. Mr.
I'lHik.s says that tbey only intend lo
work to lhe first bedrock. Tbe experiment will be watchid with interest all
aver llritish Columbia, for if it proves a
success iu I'erry creek there will be
many new placer fields opened up.
Placer Discovery.
Fort Steele Prospector: Placer gold
has beeu discovered on Fish creek, a
tributary of Little Bull river. About
three miles bas been located during the
past week.
That gold exists in the beds of many
of the rivers of South East Kooteuay, in
considerable quantities has been conclusively proved. The latest discovery
made in the district is that of Messrs.
Violet, Dore, Armstrong and others, on
Fish creek, twelve miles south of Fort
Sleele. The extent of tbe deposit has
not been determined, but prospecting at
the present time indicates that there are
several miles uf rich gold bearing gravel
that will average from three to five
cents to the pan.
It is reported that Spokane parties liuve
made a proposal lo the discoverers, and
owuers, to put iu a dredging plant and
work the ground fur a sixth interest.
Mr. Violet, who is in Spokane, ia ex*
pected to return to Steele next week accompanied by several mining men who
will examine the ground in the interest
ot Spokane parties,
The Ladles' Guild ot Christ Church Present
Tribute of Esteem.
At the regular monthly meeting of the
Ladles' Guild of Christ church, held
last week at Mrs. A. IO Plgott's, Mrs.
E. G. Erickson, who is leaving Craubrook for Port Arthur, was presented
with a beautifully engrossed address accompanied with a handsome silver
plated candlebra as a token of the esteem in which she Is held by tbe ladies
of Christ church. Tbe address wns as
To Mrs. E. G. Erickson:
Dear Mrs. Ericksou—We, the members of Christ Church Ladies Guild,
take this opportunity of giving expression to our deep regret at your departure
from Cranbrook and the consequent
reverance of your connection with Christ
church and our society. To your constant attendance, earnest effort and wise
counael the Ladies' Guild owes very
much of its success during the almost
four years that you have been associated
with it; and we assure you your services
have been heartily appreciated. You
will always occupy a warm place in our
hearts and we pray that God's richest
blessing attend you and your family in
your new home, and that you may long
be spared to work in behalf of Christ's
church. We desire you to accept this
memorial of our esteem, which we trust
will keep you in remembrance of your
sincere friends, tbe members of Hie Ladies' Guild of Christ church, Craubrook,
Signed on behalf of the Guild,
Mrs. A. E. Plgott,     Mrs.Juo. Bather,
President. Secretary.
Mrs. J. H. Caslake, Vice President.
The rector, Rev. H. Beacham, was
present, and spoke on behalf of the congregation expressing tbe high esteem in
which Mrs. Erickson was held by tbe
entire congregation aud expressing his
own personal regret at her departure,
especially wben she would now soou en
joy the privilege of worshipping in n
larger and more comfortable church.
He hoped that the article that bad
heen presented her would be symbolical
of ber future life, as it had been of her
past, "A light so shining before men
that the Father in heaven be glorified."
Morrissey Licenses.
Every man wbo applied for a license
in Morrissey received what he asked for
Tbe commission did not seem disposed
to turn anybody down but pulled down
the bars and let tbem all in. At the
close, however, tbey passed an order to
the effect that no man could open his
bar until his house was complete in every respect ami furnished. The enforce
ment of this order will be in the bands
of License Inspector Forbes, and he will
carry it out to the letter It will be impossible, under these conditions, for any
man to throw up a cheap shack, put in
two or three- beds aud call it an hotel.
As a result it Is quite probable there will
be several ofthe applicants wbo will not
build, but instead will throw up tbelr
licenses.   „_____^__
Eularflng Christ Church.
The people ol Christ church have decided on extensive alterations in tbe
church building. The lot adjoining tl e
one on which the church now stands Is
being purchase and the present building
will be moved back into the middle of
tbe two lots. A chancel 15x20 will be
built and a vestry 9x18. A furnace will
also be put In this fall. With these improvements Christ church will be
only a credit not only to the people of
tbe church, but to the city. A large
portion of the money necessary for these
alterations bas been raised in the parish
and It is expected with the assistance of
friends outside lhat when the church la
completed it will be almost if not entirely free from debt.
Morrissey Coal Is Declared Tbe Best
Of All.
It  Means  That  There Is Much
Ahead for the Whole
Last April the minister of the Interior
submitted lo Parliament the report of
Colonel Taplor, of Pittsburg, who, at
Mr. Slfton'a request examlmed last
summer the Crow's N'est Pass Coal
company's field In order to determine
tbe best place to select the 50,000 acses
of coal lands to wblch the government
Is entitled, such lands to be ot an average value of the entire coalfield. Tbe
expert made a careful examination of
the coil developed at the mines of the
Crow's Nest Coal company at Michel
Creek, Coal Creek, and Morrissey
Creek, and also examined It where developed by the 0, l'. E. company on
Michel Creek, near Marten Creek
Prom the development now made he
judges the beat part of this coalfield
(both In regard to thickness of seams
aud ease with which they may be worked), lies between Michel Creek where
Marten creek enters It, and Morrissey
Creek where Crow's Nest Pass Coal
company arc now operating tbelr
mines. He recommends : "Tbat all the
coal lying between Morrissey Creek
and the outcropping of tbe seams on
Lodgepole Creek, be selected, and that
a dividing line be drawn from a point
at the junction of the north and south
branch ol Morrlsssev Creek near where
present openings are being made by tbe
Crow's Nest Pass Coal company; from
this point due north until It intersects
with a line running east and west
through the most southern aide of the
properly, now owned by the Crow's
Nest Pass Coal company on Marten
Creek, and tbat the greater part of tbe
b0,000 acres be selected to tbe east and
south of these two Hues. With a proper
division made of tbe coal selected as
above dercrlbed at Morrissey Creek
there might be two separate operations
made In this creek, one of which could
operate in tbe territory directly south
of the creek, and the other could work
In tbe territory east and north. The
next available place would be on Michel
Creek and Marten Creek. This territory could be so divided as to accommodate two operations. These are tbe
only two available places for operations
that 1 saw, and I would classify in
relative merits the operation on Morrissey Creek as No,. 1, and that on
Marten Creek and Michel Creek as No.
l Ia recommending tbe selection of a
continuous territory from Morrissey
Creek to Michel Creek I had in my
mind the fact that if a smaller field
were selected at Morrissey Creek and
another similar field at Mlcbel Creek
and Mirten Creek, that tbe intervening
territory between these two fields
would be worthless, as It would be inaccessible from any other points, And
I am of the opinion that tbe centre of
the field lying between the two points
above mentioned will be found to contain the best coal. Tbe distance across
the field measured between theae two
points is but nine or ten miles, and It ia
perfectly practicable to mine half way
from each side. Tbat would give a
maximum underground haulage of the
coal of four or five miles, which Is not
an Impracticable distance. I wish to
especially recommend to yon the selection of the field at Morrissey Creek, as
the present developments Indicate that
the coal Is here at Its maximum thickness, and lies In tbe mountains to such
a way tbat It can be economically moved and operated, and there will be two
main lines of railway easily accessible
from ibis point."
Cao't Alford lo Miss It.
Next Monday Miss Pauline Johnson
will be here, accompanied by Walter
McKaye. Mtss Johnson appeared in
Cranbrook some two years ago, and
made a most favotable impression with
the people, and the entertainment this
year is made stronger by tbe addition of
Mr. McKaye wbo has made a great reputation as a delineator of the French
habitant characters. The people of
Cranbrook will give tbe conbination a
good house, especially as it is for Ibe
numbers of the Lacrosse club.

Tbe Calgary Baseball Club Ool Two Out ot
The Cranbrook baseball boys returned
from Calgary with the score against
them. They lost two out of three games
but they retained their honor. They
accepted tbe Invitation to go to Calgary
iu true sporting spirit, and gut their
team together under great difficulty.
They played the first gauie with the
Calgary and wou it. But in the next
two games Calgary would-be spurts put
in paid men aud won, although the second game was wou hy hard luck ou the
part of the part of the Cranbruok boys.
Up to the eighth inning it wus 3 to 3 iu
favor of Craubrook and u magnificent
game, Uut there the boys got up against
the real thing, aud it is claimed by many
that rank decisions on the part nf the
umpire bad much tu do wiih lhe result.
Aud the tabulated score us published in
the Calgary papers) uot only indicates
thot there is just cause for .this claim but
demonstrates beyond a doubt lhat
Young Jamieson is the equal ii uot superior to auy pitcher in British Columbia or the Northwest Territories. Just
gaze at tbis:
Second Game—Struck out; by Jamie

There was an exciting time at the
jail this afternoon. Harry Thompson,
a prisoner, who Is slightly insane, suddenly became violent. He seized a
sledge hammer and breaking In the
door betweeu the jail and the cilice,
made for Chief Forbes aud Constable
Koomer. Both men realized lhat this
was no time for arguni-nt and leaping
over the counter stiuck a 8t40 gate
down the street, pursued by the raving
inniac. When be reached the gate be
smashed tt from the hinges with one
blow and throwing down his hammer
burled large rocksat the fleeing officers.
At this stage Constable Walaer appeared on the scene and dodging the rocks
wotked up close to Thompson, who
again seized the hammer and made a
terrible sweep at his head. He dodged
t iis and before Thompson could recover
bis guard sprang In and soon over
powered him.

lu every Hue of the urehlng neck,

of the grent Hindoo. The eyes tshowed

I left the stalls and started up toward tbe Judges' stand, considerably
worried. It was only "niggnh talk,"
true, but Jim knew the Hay I'rince
better than any oue ou the plnce. Ue
did not know tbat on this race depended tbe old squire's borne, aud if lost It
would mean beggary.
I ahut my eyes, and It all came before me—the rolling, goldcu splendor
of tbe wheatflelds, tbe cool shadows of
tbe beecben boughs across the long
avenue thnt led up to the quaint old
home, wltb Its colonial pillared verandas, and tbe graystoue walls where
tbe guelder roses climbed aud the
thrushes snug through the summer
days; the old squire, white haired nnd
stately, and tbe little figure tbut always hovered close to his Bide, my
Jess, my wife to be, Bomewbere In the
t Jture.
Losses, debts, mortgages, one by one
bad accumulated, until the tiour hnd
come when the flower of Bel Air stables must either prove tbelr sulvatiou
or tbelr ruin. He bad always beeu a
wicked colt, vouchsafing his friendship to none but Jess, -whom he would
follow like a dog. It has passed into
tradition bow one sultry afternoon,
wben the temper of man  and  beast
mount."    He  turned   to  the  others,
"Have I your consent, gentlemen?''
At the word be waved his hand,
uml the buy ut tbo weighing block
picked up his saddle nud stepped on
I lie stllles.
'IVn minutes later tbey were lu line
below tho Btnnii — sorrel and buy,
chestnut anil gray; but, peerless among
them all. lhe noil of Hindoo fretted
niul piiweil. rolling liis eyes, that now
sliu wed tho "Inn tie ting" more tbnu

i tense muscles rose und fell lu great

gi mis Utile figures sitting low down In
the snddloa settled themselves as the
ied (lug fill. "<;o!" nud away down
the stretch flew u prism of red, yellow,
green aud purple, blending In the Ken*
tucky sunlight, around the white ribbon of track. The first quarter passsd,
and tiie bunch closed up, neck and
neck, shoulder to shoulder. Another
quarter aud one fell behind. Black
Hover was In the lead. Around the turn
and dowu tbe home stretch and Bay
, Prince bud crept to Black Rover's
shoulder. Now It was neck and neck,
and a wild yell went up from 6,000
throats as black and bay were nose
and nose. Twenty yards, and the red
jacket lay down lu tbe saddle. They
were near enough for the judges to see
the flash of the great bay's eyes as be
gathered himself and with a mighty
effort landed under the wire just ft
nose length ahead of the black. And
then pandemonium broke loose. Men
clambered down from everywhere. Up
went tbe numbers—Boy Frince first,
liliii-l. Hover second and Zlngara third.
It wns all over, and the Derby had
gouo down Into history. In the midst
of it a little figure all In Us gay scarlet
satins dropped from the saddle and
was half carried by Jim to the weighing block,
"You go way, Mas' Charley. Dis
liculi boy ain't nowise fltteu ter talk."
Jim bad for once forgotten bis "raisin' " In bis anxiety to bar me out, but I
brushed blm aside and saw my Jess tn
her close tailor suit standing just Inside the door. The scarlet jacket and
cap lay upou Jim's cot, and my darling's pretty face rivaled tbem tn eolor.
There wur oue shamefaced moment,
and then the little bead went proudly
"I did it for papa and Bel Air!" And
Jim went off chuckling to himself as I
drew tbe door close behind me.

gently nickering, to where JeBs stood,
wltb her hands full of sugar.
I looked toward the grand stand,
but could not see Joss anywhere. It
was nlmost time for tlio race, nud the
excitement wus rising to fever bent.
I'p In tbe judges' stand a little knot of
meu were holding un animated discus*
slou, Judging from tbelr gestures. I
strolled up to them. j
"I say it is against all precedent!" a
short man in a checked suit was vociferating.
"It makes no difference about his
name. How do you know If uny of
them own tbe names they carry?" mi id
unotber, and old Colonel Sylvester
clinched tho subject.
'it ls merely n matter of pounds. We
know the boras and tbe owner. Let

"What Is It all about?" I questioned,
and tbe colonel replied.
"Squire Montgomery's jockey bits
disappeared. He was to have ridden
Bay Prince In this rnce. There is ■
boy down there that claims be knows
tht horse, but be will not give bll

Professor Jowett, the great master
of BhIIo! college, had wise words to
speak on tbe crucial topic cf growing
old.   He wrote to a friend:
"Tbe later years of life appear to me,
from a certalo point of view, to be tha
best.   They nre less disturbed by care
uud the world.    We begin to understand that things reslly never did mat*
ter so much as we supposed, nnd we
are able to see them more lu tbelr true
proportion instead of being overwhelm* I
ed by them.   We are more resigned to ,
(he will of God, neither nfraid to de- j
part nor overanxious to stay.   We can-1
nut see Into uuotber life, but wc believe
with   su   InexHugulsbable   bopo  that;
there is something still  reserved for!
us." !
It Is worth while to remember his
hints for old age, full ns they are of
a practical wisdom:
Beware of the coming on of age, for
It will not be defied.
A ninu cannot become young by over- j
exerting himself.
A man of sixty should lead a quiet,
open iiir life, !
He should collect tin* young about
He should set other men to work.
IU ought at sixty to have acquired
authority, reticence and freedom from .
personality. I
Ho may truly think of tbe last years
of life us belug tiie best and every year
u*- belter than the last If he knows how*
to use IU
I have Rood wood of all lengths.

Many peoplo who profess tbemselvee

iheiii well enough lo take proper care
of them. Especially ls this true of cut
flowers, which unless properly cared
for last sueh a short time. During tbe
day give them the coolest place In ths
room, the Icebox If you have one.
Choose for all loug stemmed flowers ft
deep vase, change tbe water every day;
ni night lake them from the vase and
plungo tbem In cool fresh water to the
very bloom. Vou will find them much
refreshed In the morning, whereas If
they stand all night in the same water
or In an Insufficient quantity they will

Those wbo complain tbey "can't keep

A Recoil Joke,
Not so many years ago there was a
veteran teacher In a boys' blgb school
who often made bis classes wince under the lash of bis bitter sarcasm end

and tbe boys thought tbey saw a chance
to express their feelings toward "Fussy." who was busy In another room.
The frightened mongrel was picked up,
quickly fitted with a pair of large wire
spectacles and placed on the teacher's
"Fussy" entered the room, walked to
his desk, calmly surveyed the work of
his pupils and then, turning to tbem,
pleasantly said, "In my absence I see
