Improving On Nature
Is one oi the (unctions ol the tailor. By his art he makes
up (or deficiencies of shoulder, chest, etc. It is our business
to do that, and more. We not only make perfect fitting
garments which set off a good figure and improve a poor
one, but we put material in our suits which some tailors
would not think of selling at less than double our price.

crews, numbering over 900, went ont

Minors' union demands an increase un

tut of union men wus taken last week,
lail the result was not made known till
hist night, when nt a largely attended
meeting of ihe union a statement was
made that the vole was almost unanimous in favor of a stiike. It was resolved that the strike should take effect
this morning and a program was carried
out.
In the other Rossland mines, the War
Bagle, Center Star, I X L, Iron Mask,
Home Stake, New St. Elmo, about 500

in better shape for travel than many
parts ofthe main liue.
A False Alarm.
Lust Tuesday night about 12 o'clock,
the people in the vicinity of the Craubrook hotel were aroused by the cry of
lire. Mauy rushed onto the street to
lind William Webster yelling at the top
ot Uii voice thai lhe hospital was on fire.
An old tree back ofthe hospital that hnd
been hurtling for the past 24 hours, had
attracted his attention and he thought
the hospital was doomed.
P. McMurphy, of Rat Portage, arrived
in lown on Sunday to lake a situation in
the C. P. R. freight office here. We
understand Mr. McMurphy Is a star
hockey player ond wib be a valuable
nddltlon to the Pernie team.

has again been forced l<* flee in order to
escape the law.
The new two-storey addition to lhe
Alberta hotel, which has been delayed
for some time owing lo the lack of lumber, is again under wny nnd is being
pushed rapidly.   Mr, Levasseur Intends
tn change the plan   of the   inside of  liis
hotel throughout and is sparing neither
pains nor money to make his hotel first-
class in every respect.
Our readers will be gratified to learn
that the coal company has decided upon
a policy which will have the effect of
building up Pernie into the largest town
in tlie Kootenays. At Michel and Morrlsey no lots will be iold. Mine
houses only will be built nnd Pernie is
to be pushed us lhe one town iu llie
section.
Mr. J. J. Hill states positively that he
is prepared to take (0,000 tons of coal
ami coke daily from the Crows Nest field
and work is to be pushed ns rapidly as
possible until this tonnage is reached.
This is a guarantee for the future of
Pernie and the district and will mean a
population of not less thnn 15,000 to

Rev. Mr Hough ton, of Carhery, Manitoba, who has been extended a cnll to

land in Fernie, writes from Rngltfnd,
where he has been on n ihree months
leave of absence, Mint he experts to be

from the Royal hotel to the Coal company's offices  nnd  buck   ns  far as lhe

J. R. Costigan returned last week from
his eastern trip, accompauied by his sou
Frank, Tbey visited the Buffalo exposition, and Mr. Costigan says that It is a
great sight. He spoke especially of the
leclrical display and said that thous-
Uds gathered each evening to gaze for
hours at the magnificent beauties presented, Referring to the wnrm weather
be saitl thai lust week while riding
through Manitoba one afternoon the
heal was so intense that everyone iu tlle
car was suffering, The raising of lhe
car windows brought no relief, as the
breeze tha swept through the car was
like thai from the mouth of a furnace.
George Hillinrd returned last week
fiom un extended trip through western
British Columbia uud llie stnte of Washington. He says lie found business
seemingly quiet every place he visited
except Seattle aud Spokane, The latter
city he looks upon as 11 great winner and
he says it is one the prettiest towns he
has ever seen. He found more building
going on there than nny other place he
visited. 	
William ltbikemore, who is now in
charge of the prospecting work on the
iron properties at Kitchener, passed
through Cranbrook Saturday for Fernie,
He said that lhe work wan progressing
satisfactorily, hut furthermore than tbut
he hnd nothing In sny at present. Referring to the conditions of mining iu
general throughout the province, he expressed the opinion thut there would be
a change for the better when there was
less stock jobbing and smaller capitalization of companies. He thought the
trouble nt Rosslaud was partly due to
this very thing, ami he knew that there
had been many cases iu British Columbia where good paying properties had
been virtually ruined by the desire to
manipulate the stock and gross mismanagement. He looks upon British
Columbia ns a vast store house of riches,
and believes the time is coming with
the improved process of treating lhat
the immense low grade bodies that are
to he found all through the Kootenays
und Boundary country will be worked at
a profit.
Charles Theis, of Spokane, arrived in
town lust week from Jennings, Mont.,
where he has been getting the steamer
North Star iu shupe for traffic on the
Kootenny. The boat will be run between Jennings and the camps along the
line of thc new railway. Mr. Thies says
that the route for the new line of road
has been settled nud that the Great
Northern will build from Kalispell to
Jennings over a new survey that will do
away with tiie heavy grade on the pres-
hne between those two points. The
Crows Nest Southern will branch off
from this new liue aboul an equal distance from Kalispell aud Jennings, and
at a point about six miles below the
boundary line. Mr. Thies bays that contractors are already at work at the Jennings end of the line, uud that construction will be pushed rapidly forward.
Fred Hazen tells a story that shows
sometimes how strange matters in this
life turn out.    Wben he left borne 17
years ago, he had a young brother, who
left  for the wesi seven years later,
good shipping ore   if lhey   had I Tune passed on, and lhe family lost trace
transportation,   Mr.  Hazen says there I of the younger  brother entirely, and
is plenty of ii ami bis claim lies in line  after making every effort to locale him,

his hotse Kimberley capturing the three

at Calgary he ha led his horse for
"Dr. M," the guideless pacer, receiving
a nice sum of money iu the bargain.

Tin*: ST. RUGKNR,
The St. Bugene partially closed down
ns was anticipated, and now is working
a reduced force of about 75 men. The
conceit I rn tor is nnt working at the present time bul the compressor is still running, as several machiues are working
in the mines. Last wiuter, during the
close down a large amount of ore was
stored and this Is now being shipped in
order to complete the contract. If the
ore un hand is uot sufficient the concentrator will likely run fui 11 few dnys in
order to turn out the rest of the ore requited hy the contract, Although the
mine is working with n reduced force,
more men are being employed during
the close down thau some mines employ
when running full handed. It is anticipated that the shut down will not be of
long duration and ihnt in a short time
everything will be in full blast again.
Titl! PtOHt.
Last Saturday evening the long-looked*
for and much-talked-of light lietween
Jack Fitzgerald, of Moyie, and Rd Cuff,
of Fernie, look place in Morley hall.
Large contingents wereheie from Ferine
nud Cranbrook and ahout 100 persons
are supposed to have witnessed the houl.
Jack Farrell, of Moyie, was chosen us
referee, ami did his utmost lo fill ,1 most
trying position. When lhe gong sounded the contestants took their positions
and thc light was on. In the first round
lhey were sparring for au opening, each
feeling fm* the other's weak points, but
Fitzgerald seemed lo have the upper
hand and lo be the better man. The
second round demonstrated what bad
been supposed in the first. Fitzgerald
forced lhe lighting, drawing first blood,
und had by loug odds the best of the
fight. The third round was r repetition
of the second, ami the hard blows of
Fitzgerald were telling oil Cuff, who was
being rather roughly handled. Near
the close of the third round they
clinched, and iu the breakaway Fitzgerald gol OIIC ill 011 Cufl, thus making a
foul. The referee gave Cuff the decision
of winning the tight on a foul, and although Fitzgerald had all through the
best nf the bout, Cuff took the money.
Incitement ran pretty high for some
time, #100 being offered 10 Cuff if he
would re-enter the ring and fight it out.
This he declined to do, ami although far
from satisfied the rrowd had to withdraw and repaired to the different hotels
where heated discussions of the resuit
took place. Without doubt Fitzgerald
hud the best oi the tight, and with training should be able to meet auy man in
British Columbia.
THK CONCENTRATOR  DA NCR,
On Tuesday last the men who are employed In the concentrator gave a dance
In the park opposite ihe town. Nearly
all the business bouses were closed for
the afternoon and young nnd uld could
he seen hurrying across the 1 ike. Dancing was the order ofthe day, Messrs.
Wilson and Murphy being on hand and
furnishing excellent nins'c Refreshments were on the ground, anil everything tended toward a very enjoyable
outing. By tbe evening even more were
present than in the afternoon, and all
tripped the light fantastic until the early
uioniing hours. The park is nn ideal
one, ami tiiose who go there and foil to
enjoy themselves cannot blame it on
their surroundings.
MACHINERY   ARRIVED.
The machinery for the new sawmill
arrived tliis week, and as quickly as possible will he put in place. The masonry
for the boilers is now nearly completed,
lhat in a few days they will be In
place. Operations now wiil he rushed,
and it is hoped tliat within three or four
weeks sawing will commence.
COSMOPOLITAN SOI.D,
Tiie Cosmopolitan hotel, which was
run by T. V. Lowuey, changed hands
the end of last week nud ik now owned
by J. Nelson, who arrived a short lime
ugo from Copenhagen, Denmark. Mr.
and Mm Lowney left hist Tuesday for
Rossland. While here they made many
friends and all regretted to see ihem go.
COURTHOUSE COMPLETED,
The new courthouse, which hns been
11 course of election for the past few
weeks, is now completed and is decidedly a credit to tiie contractors and the
town. The building contains a large
courtroom, a magistrate's room, a constable's room nnd three slrong cells.
There is a fine picket fence before tbe
building, and the grounds behind are enclosed by a to-fool hoard fence The
building is beautifully finished inside
and oul, and is surely an addition to
Moyie which is worth having,
THE CATI101,1 C BAZAAR.
The members of tlie Catholic Ladies
Aid find Allar society gave u bazaar and
ice cream social last Thursday evening.
A large number were present and the result was very gratifying, $105 being

All over the Nnrlli American cnnll
neni at the iiresent time there are
Itrllrea In force. Canada anil the Unl-
tcii stnien are experiencing an upheaval in labor circles that Is almost unprecedented. There is hardly n lint: of
business that is not affected, anil lhc
end Is not yel in sight.
The "community of Interest." idea as
alvaiiced by the ureat tmst magnate
J. P. Morgan, does not seem to reach
the producer. The great capitalistic
combinations In the Slates are beglt.-
nlng lo learn thai there are two sides
to llio question, and that lhe men who
malic such large dividends possible are
also lormlng strong i:imblnations fnr
their protection. As a result the bll-
Hon dollar steel U1I-.I Is today coulenit
ing with one of the greatest strikes

years have elapsed it will have a numerical strength of probably 100,000 members. The president and founder is Mr.
G. O. Shields, manager and editor of
Recreation, lhe official organ of the

a powerful agent for preventing illegal
destruction of game and for the promotion of protective measures. Its executive officers are now endeavoring to
establish a division in British Columbia
There are at present nine members of

wlih a view to enforcing the game laws
in the province, before our game is utter*
ly extinct, aside from the humane aspect
ofthe question. Prom a nlititarian point
of view our business meu should give
their earnest attention to the matter, tor
wilh honest supervision from local game
wardens in a very few years the district,
of which Craubrook is the ceuter, would
become au attractive resort for sportsmen. There are sufficient deer yet remaining to Btock the mountains and
valleys with their inciease had they but
a fair chance to do so, especially if the
destructive proclivities of the Indians
weie properly curbed. The same also
applies to the trout, which brings me to
refer to tbe heading of this letter. Last
week I visited the Deep Lake at tbe back
of Mr. Watt's, iu company with Mr.
Patton of Cranhrook, and found evidences of the most loathsome work of the
shameless fish hog in the wanton destruction of trout with dynamite. Nothing
would restrain such characters save the
fear of the game warden, aud to prevent
the attractiveness of the lakes around
being completely destroyed, as regards
fishing, the earlier such are appointed
the better. There are some excellent
trout lakes iu the neighborhood of
Palmers Bar, aud, would he accept it, no
better warden c?uld be found for their
protection than Mr. Watt himself. I
trust, sir, that the subject is of sufficient
public importance to excuse my troubling you at so great a length, and that
this ventilation oi the question may lead
those to action whose position aud education qualify them to do so.
Yours truly,
EDWARD CALLAHAN.

I'Mitor Herald: Among the many attractions at the full fair to be held at

there will be a baby show. Not a few
interested iu this particular department
have made the request thnt one should
beheld. I wish to invite, through the
medium ol your valuable columns, public opinion as to the general management, manner of judging, etc., as it is
lhe paiticular desire ol the management
of the Agrii'iiltum!, Mineral and Industrial exhibition in this matter of a baby
show to fall iu entirely with the wishes
of the public. A separate tent, com*
Kootenny Central Ruilwny charter is be-   fortably appointed,  will  lie used for the
ing eagerly sought for by the railway
magnates, Mr, (ialbraith iu his capacity as Indian agent, spent much of his
time on the reserve attending to his
mnny duties aud has vaccinated a number of Indians. He states that accrosa
the International boundary there are up
wards of 200 cases of small-pox among
the Indians and that he is doing everything possible to keep It off the reserves.
While in Windermere he banded over,
the deeds for the lots upou which the
church of Kngland has been erected, and
for the cemetery. He left on Sunday for

Tlie Fdllni-N Difficulty.
Few of tho Indians can read English, but nbonl 10,000 are able to
read anything printed In tho Mohawk dialect. The Mohawk alphabet consists of twelve loiters, and
n and k are used much oftener than
nny of the others. An ordinary
eight-page Issuo of the Onkweonwe
contains about one-quarter n's and
k's. For this reason the editor bus
difficulty in getting bis

Wln-n tho Onkwoonwo camo out
first many of tho old chiefs objected
to it. "Tho Croat Spirit, Gitcheo
Manitou the Mighty, says good Indians nover read newspapers," said
they to tho younger braves, but tho
paper became popular. Indians like
to learn about tbe doings of thc
white ini'ii. When Editor Cooke
started Un- paper ho published Incidents about tho Indians, and Bomu
Iut tors wero sent to him from his
tallow-braves, Baying, "Stop publishing in'ws about the Indians; tell
us aboul  Laurier nnd others."
Thoy did not object to tho nnme
Onkwoonwo, which means in tho Mohawk tongue, "the only human being," or "ilu1 real liuinnn being," in
contradistinction to others who are
looked upon OS being less worthy of
the name of mnn, or as lacking in
qualities of manhood. "Onkwe"
menus a human being, nnd would be
applied to a palofaco or to an Indian of another tribe. The addition of "onwe" is Mohawk for "the
real thing."
.Au  In qui ult Ive  P*Opl*.
The Mohawks are inquisitive.
Among tho questions Editor Cooke
has bud to answer are the following:
"Why does tho Government try to
control Indians?" "What is electricity?" "Who wns Papineau, nud
what did he do?" "What is an Indian''" To the last question Mr.
Cooke answered: "An Indian is an
Indian who hus native blood in his
veins, and who is on the reserved
lands     under     the protection of the
■eminent.
The Onkweonwe recently published
the following story about an Indian
living near Eganville, not many
miles from Ottawa:
"Indian John, a celebrated Mohawk guide, who is now BO years
old, bas been sleeping in his coffin
for mnny months. John, although
Ri ill n vigorous man, knows that he
must soon leave for the happy hunting grounds, so some time ago he
mado himself a coffin and began
Bleeping in It.
"Since then he has used no othor
bed, und he has told bis family that
if death comes to him while he is lying in his coffin, thoy are to put on
the lid nnd bury him. Until lhe call
comes John will continue to bunt In
the lund of tho Mlssissnugns.
"Sixty years ngo he entered the
land, and begnn to hunt near Eganville, Which was thon a wilderness,
Tlie Misslssailglls would have no interlopers in their territory, anil one
day uight of tbem sol out after Mohawk John. They enme upon him
when he was sleeping, und made him
n prisoner.
"Placing him in n canoe, the Mlss-
Issaugua star led for tho Mohawk
country. On the way John became
so troublesome that they had to
put. him on shore before lhey had
gone far. Grabbing n tomahawk^
John smashed tho prow of the birch
bark canoe, und defied thein to come
ashore and light hini. Alllioii-^li the
others hud rifles, they were afraid,
and put out into lhe -stream. From
thul day to this John hus hunted
In the Mlssissuugus country."
