NO one can
afford to be
without a
Rain Coat at
this time of
the year. The
wet weather is
now coming
on and you
can't afford to take the chance of getting wet and get down with pneumonia when a good Rain Coat can
be had for so little money.
Our Goods are
WE will include a very
large assortment of Men's
Soft and
Shirts. Prices
have been teetotally disregarded in this
line. Better come early, because these
Shirts will go like hot cakes.
We have used our BIQ KNIFE on all prices.   We want the goods to move and have SLASHED prices to
make them move. Many lines are cut away below actual cost
of beauties.
Anybody and
everybody can
afford a new
Tie at such
low prices.
These are all
the late Fall
Styles, but as we have a very large
order placed for Christmas we wish to
clear these out.   The price will do it.
look the Shoe
We have a
large quantity
of all kinds
and prices of
Shoes. Some
lines are more
or less broken in sizes. Other lines
are complete. But we are going to
slaughter a lot of them to make room
for our immense stock now on order., t
YOU   can
always  use
another hat.
This   is   a
good   time
to pay that
bet, as it
will cost you just about half price to do it. We are going
to slaughter our big stock of Hats. This is your gain and
our loss. There are all styles, in both hard and soft. In
this glorious banana climate you can wear a hat the year
around.   Don't miss this sale.
■    ■
We will place on Sale on Saturday morning some very Special
bargains, and you will do well to come early and get first choice;
A Nice Assortment of TIES, regular price 50c and 75c
Saturday Special Price „.  25c
colors, regular price $1.75
Saturday Special Price  	
MEN'S LAUNDRIED WHITE SHIRTS, regular price $1.25
Saturday Special Price	
JNO. B. STETSON HATS, Brown Railroad Shape and Black
Pedora Shape, regular price $4.00 and $5.00
Saturday Special Price .	
WE are long
on Collars, and
several  lines
are broken in
sizes, but as
we   have so
many   kinds
you can get what you want and save
half the price.
WE have a
few odd lines
of M e n's
Pants and
Vests which
we desire to
clear out be*
fore moving
into our new
store. We can interest you in this department, as there are some very great
bargains, and you will miss the opportunity of your life if you miss this sale.
We have quite a range of MEN'S UNDERWEAR and HEAVY TOP SHIRTS which will be included in the Sale, also other lines which
we cannot mention on account of limited space
Crockery at Bed Rock Prices
THIS is an opportunity to renew your stock of breakables.
We will have many lines of White Graniteware, Printed-
ware, and Fancy China and Glassware, which we prefer
closing; out at VERY low prices rather than smash them
ourselves during the moving. We want to move them to the
lucky purchaser next week, and feel sure of doing it when
the prices are seen.
Bargains for Grocery Buyers
IN our general round up of bargains we haven't overlooked
the grocery buyer. In a stock turned over as often as ours is,
few odds and ends are found. We will load up the Grocery
Bargain tables with standard everyday lines marked at the
most tempting quick selling prices. There will be bargains
every day during the week; but, as usual, first choice will
probably be the best, so be on hand early Monday morning.

Tlu- cost lu lbe province ul Ute construction uf tlw E. A- N. railway, for
sumo Inexplicable reason, has bent
Hindu ibe principal plea fur amendment of the terms ul union. A tew
witKs ago the Colonist said;
"JnsL wfcftt it cost Hriiisb Columbia lu gel the E. A S. railway, wbieb
.-h<.nlil have hem buill without cost
iu us, is a liiile dlllicult to determine. Al current governmenl prices,
ihe land in Peace River, which is
among the best in ihe province; is
worth J.'i.iiii au acre, or $17,5110,1)01).
it could bo sold in block to-uuy io a
syndicate for ihal sum. The 2,000.-
1)00 acres of land un the Island—laml.
Umber and cual—is worth, or would
be worth to-day al leasl $12,500,000,
So thai in round llgures we gave up
assets wuii-b tStl.uTI(J.IIO0 for a lailwav lhat cost less than $3,000,000 to
build, and wbieb wo were entitled lu
receive I'm nothing—for a railway
which cost the Dominion, Including
what was paid in connection wlllll Lho
tlrydpek, ahoul $1,100,000. This
bargain was forced upun us as a coti-
Heiptetice of uur necessities at the Lima
liy a parliament ignorant uf Uu* slliin-
li'iin in, and resources of, llritish Columbia, and naturally unable, to foresee .the developments of the luture.
It wus a bargain made in defiance uf
the Carnarvon Terms, which hail boon
shamelessly violated. Tbere is nc
lioulit ihal Canada repudiated a
solemn agreemenl entered into iu
1871 ami afterwards made us pay leu
times over fur a railway llial under
those terms belonged tn us as a right
without expense on uur part."
.There is no doubt lhat lhe province
paid verv dearly tor lbe construction
of the tv .V S. railway, but it is n„\
apparent that We are goiiiR lo strengthen our demand fur A revision ul the

Thr reply uf t.he Walkein government in tbis demand was written un
Uw lib of May, iwtu. H vvas practically a refusal Iu consider lhe matter, alihuinib th' Dominion govern-,
nieni was requested to "define the
ian is which ihey mighl consider
valueless Ior agricultural or other
economic purposes; to indicate tho
lauds whieh thev ml**bt desire lo secure iu lieu thereof; m state bow thev
proposed to deal with such lauds if

province by the withdrawal from set-
llemenl since .Inne. 1873, bv special
roquesl of ihe Dominion, of a valuable trad of 3,2011 square miles nf

Ibu v'.w Walkcm government passed
ami mie less careful of the Interests
of ibe province succeeded It, The demands of the governmenl oi Sir .1, lm
A. Mnedotmld for lands "valuable tor
agricultural and economic purposes'-'
iu lieu uf '.'valueless" lands in tlto
original railway bell weie conceded by
the Smythe government ol the province iu ihr vear 1883, when alt act
"for the purpose of settling all existing disputes and tlllliculUes lielween
ihe two governments" was passed.
One uf the sections (o) uf ihis act
"The government of Hrilish Columbia Bjfcvll obtain the authority of tho
legislature tn convey to ihv government of Canada three and one-half
till 11 ion acres (of laml in tho Peace
river dislriel nf Hrilish Columbia, in
mie rectangular block, east of the
Kueliv Mountains, ami adjoining the
N'uititwest territory of Canada."
Thus the Dominion government goi
niole Ihan it claimed iu lieu uf tbe
luuis in the railway Mt that were
alleged to be useless fur agricultural
or economic purposes, as it has never
to this day I'cconveycd I o lho province lbe lliree and' one-half million
acres id land within Uie lorly mile

ihere Is any disposition al this late

ii<d ..ut ilir vvill uf ihr people wlm
placid it in power. If is perfectly
itppnrcnl imw thai it was tu,, prodl-
L-al with the lauds uf Die province.
Hul we must nut misrepresent il bv
distorting or falsifying the facts of
y&tory. We cannol strengthen our
case for heller lerms hv resorting to
stub tactics. The land's conveyed to
'hr Dominion governmenl un account
nl the cuiistruction of the E. A S.
raiiwav are specifically defined in the
Act nf 188-1, wbieb savs:
"There is hereby granted to the
Dominion government fur the purpose
i.f constructing, ami tu aid in the construction of, a railway between Esquimau and Nnnnimo, and in trust to

li mat noi in- generally known that

iu de house at ihe 1 liofi session, a

When the latter gentleman had ceased
speaking he retired tu thu lobby and
Mr. .Maul.maid rose to speak on his

some discussion, moved its adoption
In lhe meantime Mr. McUrldo had returned to his seal. ()( course the
motion ot .\ii. Macdonald as member
i,f the opposition wiis bound to meet
defeat. Anil to avoid this ami give
ihe people ol the province the benelii
of a resolution that would provo beneficial if properly followed up, Mr.
.Macdonald staled on the Hour Uiat he
would be willing to withdraw his motion if the prcmlei cared to move the
adoption ,,f the resolution. The
premici readily acquiesced and moved
the adoption ol tlte resolution calling
Ior hetier terms foi British Columbia
as prepared ht Mi. Macdonald, leader
uf the opposition. This was promptly seconded by Mr. Macdonald and
carried unanimously. And this is

King, ol Cranbrook, thai the votes
and proceedines ol February Uth, Uw
day lhe resolution was. adopted, be
amended so as lo make-it plainly appear ,,n the votes and proceedings
that .McBride had withdrawn his resolution in favor of the resolution presented by Mr. Macdonald, and
had accepted Mr. Maodonald's
resolution in place of his
own, In the        face       ot
ihese facts, which are ,1 pari of the
record'; if lhe house al the last SCS-
t mu preposterous for Mr.
or any paper supporting tbo
'iruen combination, to come
out and make n political plav on this
matter? Such fl move would be as
silly as Mr. McBride's withdrawal
from tho conference, against tho protests ol his Conservative colleagues.
.Idei, Star has about hit   Uie
n   tbe  folluwing   statement:
,\n editor we know personally figured out that any time yuu see a man
finding fault with his local paper, the
chances are 10 to 1 thai he hasn't an
ad. in it; 5 to 1 be never gave it a
job of woik; d to I he does not take
the paper, 2 to 1 that if be is a subscriber be owes for it; 5 to 1 thai he
never does anything to assist the publisher to run a good paper, -10 to 1 he
is the most eager to see the paper
when it comes out. It's the printer's
lut to lake the kicks ol tbe town and
yel be expected to write tlowery obituary notices."
The manner In which the newspapers of St. John are wot king to
secure   what  that eity  thinks anils  reasonable    demands upon the
Dominion government    is a lesson
to the press ul some ulher places
lhat   we Could name.       Political
differences are   lost sight ol, and
all   labor   for    the same    object.
This is how St. John became   the
winter putt  ol Canada, and it  is
how    Victoria   could    accomplish
much     The trouble with us here
seems to be   teat  it is -easier to
find fault with each other than   lu
assist    along    any    greal   public
movement.—Victoria Colonist.
No, the trouble has been from    the
start   lhat   the    McBride  governmenl
las tried lo  make the   better terms
proposition a politieal scheme.   There
has been no    lime   that Mr.-McBride I
has shown a disposition lo co-operale
witill   Mr. Maodonald in   this matter
cxeept once, nud Uial was when    he
adopted   Mr.     Maedonald's   resolution
at ihe last session instead of his own,
simply because the former was   much
the'siruiiger and better.     If Mr. McBride had  taken Mr.  Macdonald with
him to Ottawa be wuuld have bad the
counsel arrJ advice of one of the veiy
best    lawyers in    the province,    and
what  is    more,    would unconsciously
have    made   a great'   political play.
But Mr. McBride insisted by bis   actions    that    the   ijuestion   of bet ter
terms was a    political, question,   and
ihe Conservative   papers throughout
the province are following the lead nf
the premier.    This is unfortunate lor
bhe Conservative party and doubly unfortunate for the people uf tbe   province as a wliole.     Some men    would
insist t.n only members of their party
being    pall    bearers   at   their    own
funeral, so blinded are they by partisan  prejudice.     This ease of    better
terms [or British Columbia, and    the
way it is lifting handled, reminds one
ul the pall bearer illustration.
The Liberal press through,,ul
Canada chortles in unt'oly glee because some Conservative 'member*'
of parliament hove been apprehended in tie heinous offence of
making money out of a deal in
western lands and British Columbia mill property. The gentlemen who ate responsible for the
histrionics uf the Toronto Globe
and all its followers in Canada
would be amusing were it not that
they have become so palpably
hypocritical. They attempt to
make their readers believe that a
few Conservative M. P.'s who
buughl western railway lands hoping to clean up some prolit by the
rise in values, or who took over
the property of the Kamloops
Lumber company trusting that

rascals and grafters of themselves.
We fail to see why Messrs. Fowler
et. al. were not justified iu asking
an advance on lhe price at which
they secured the Kamloops Lumber company's property. Business

Jjri.OOO was not an out-of-the-
way commission ou a transaction
of tbe si/e in question. That they
were not swindling the I'nion
Trust company ia values ls very
well shown by the fact that the
company has recently sold out the
Kamlunps property at a furth.-r
alivance ol $7-'),U00, _ very satisfactory profit on tiib.tititi. The
Liberals we know are at a loss tu
lind something, anything, which
they can use to draw public attention away trorn the .scandals
whieh have disgraced the present
administration, but they must he

business transaction is made the
medium of a scandalous attack
upon a group of private members
who happen to he business associates.—Kamloops Standard,
This is partisan madness- to the extreme. There are organs ol the
Conservative party that have been
li.de bound enough tw keep silent mi
this distressing incident, but none
except the Standard have been si,
servile, so loyal lo party as to defend the actions of the participants in
this disgraceful deal, simply because
Uie men involved were Conservatives. Kastcrn Conservative papers
are condemning the action of the
combination in using lheir political
standing in parliament lo work both
Sir Thomas Shauj-hiicssy, of ine c.
P. IL, and Mr. Mann, of the Canadian
Nor them, for inside informatiun.
They are also condemning thc combination for using the funds of lhe
insurance company in lhc manner
thai they did. The Kamloops
Standard is deserving of praise for
its courage, even if it does display a
lack of wisdom and judgment. But
it vvill fail entirely if it expects to
foul the people by its platiludes, and
is surely derelict in its duty as a
m*wspa|M*r when it condones' a wrong
doing for party reasons. Such
papers, are a curse t-o anv community. ^
For the benefit of Mr. Blakemore,
ol the Victoria Week, we might mention that there are some things in a
man's make-up worse ihan bad grammar—and he knows what they are as
well as any nianJn H. .<"'., and so do
people whu know Mr. Blakemore.
The Conservative organs of this
province are getting in line in Iheir
condemnation of the Socialists. It
looks as if Premier McBride was prepared to carry out his programme of
publicly breaking away from Hawthorn ttwaite and his followers for
political effect.     Tlie scheme    won't

no.se caught in a tin can, and John
Ryan and Mr. Brown, tlw hotel keepers, were aroused from bed to see tbe
sight and also lo participate iu lhc
slaughtering ot the innocents. It was
a beautiful night, Mie silvery moon
was rising over the range et the
Rockies, the rippling of the swift
flowing waters ot the Kootenay was
like music to the ears ol man. Tt©
little odoriferous animal was laboring
under a bad handicap, with his head
caught in lhe can, yet there was
strength in his defence, and wisdom in
his tactics. The animal is dead, but,
there will be no "monument erected Ut
his memory. Ryan, Brown and Carter jusl how to each other as they
pass by, and when the story'is told
in Wardner it is told in whispers, as
no one wants to abed blood,

Sirdar, B   C , Oct,   13.—A  lew   days

liberty, and having once lasted the
sweets of freedom was nol to be In
gulled back io the bondage oi chains

to re-capture, if possible.
During bis rambles Un- animal dis

by bis success the hear returned lu
the cellar Friday morning about L3U
a. in., where he was discovered by
Mrs. Dculan wlm undertook to scare
blm by shying a tin of milk in his
direction. ' i'he uproar awoke the
household, Including three young lady
visitors from Cranbrook whu, by the
wav, camped out in tents until Uie
local terror broke lunse. Seizing a
ii Winchester the heroine nf tiie slorj

peaceful sit. Iicrs of ibe inmates ul

disturbed by lhe news oi the presence

was given by Mis. Doolan, the proprietress, win was fortunate in smiting lhe .services uf some uf the buys,
who, wiih the aid uf a rifle, succeeded in pulling the nocturnal visitor uut i.l business.
It   is   believed   thai   lhe   hear     was
tbe property uf Mr. .1. MePeak, .it the
Hotel Sirdar, who, inr some time
back has kept them as a source uf al-
tractlon for tourists. At various
times Mr. MePeak has bad the misfortune lo lose liis bears and it is

The populace nf Sirdar are lu be
greatly congratulated fur having got

morning a young lady, who is visiting
Sirdar, was awakened from her pene
ful    slumbers by a  noise  proceeding
from    lhe cellar     ol  the    U. P. R,

she found the   mi.ssing hear in     the
act of doing     the disappearing trick

Will he cairns iu Issue a statement.
Wm. Dicken was m lus second term
ol nllice as pu-sMent ol Gladstone
iKt-uuc) Miners' union aud was only
recentl) nominated by this local Un
national board member, ni tin- dulled
Mine Workers ui America, ilis statement, (lie publication cf wliich lias
causi-d his resignation, is given in (ull
Fellow Workmen: At this time ui
utu present trouble, 1 feel lhat I can-
uui refrain (rum acquainting you wllh
ihc facts abuut llw. mis-U\uiiug notice
which was published in reference to us
SflAing non-union nun seven days'
notice thai we Intended to cease
working with them. I might state
here the reason that I am glV.ng this
lu the press is un account ol statements made to the effect that we,
as the local officers of Kernie union,
are responsible for this strike. I vvill
give an account uf the strike from Us
For Ue last iwo or three months a
number of men have notified the company's clerks at Cual Creek t/.ial they
wished to have their names withdrawn from the cheek-oil book and
wrote statements to that effect and
signed tbelr names to the same,
wh ch meant that ihey did not wish
lo pay any mure dues to the union
Now complaints were made ahout
these nun doing this and after we
had eudtavuitd tu lind out lhe reason
why these men had withdrawn their
names, we found that sume had
grievances against some ot tte union
cfllcials and nthurs were going to send
their reasons in writing. I always
,ionsldered that when a man signed
ihe check-off book, he ought to have
stood by It until the end uf the agreemenl, without lie lelt the camp he-
lore the agreement expired. I say
that il was a mural right but I can-
tint say he had a legal right because
the law does not compel nlm unless
he signed for it to continue until tlu
expiration of the said agreement.
This 1 do hold, however, that any
man receiving the benefits which have
been gained through the efforts ^f organized labor and will net pay his
dues comes under tie head of those
whu receive goods frum a Store and
will not pay for ihem or one whu
will cheat a widow and rob the j
orphans, ami is not lit for the society
ol honest working men.
Nuw afler this had been thoroughly discussed in uur local, it was decided to put il intu the hands of thc
district officials. 1 don't know what
the dislriel did in the matter only
that President Sherman waited upon
lho management with myself, about
fhis question, ami were informed that
Mr. Llndsey had gone to Victoria the
night previous. The president, then
told me thai he was going to write
to .Mr. Lindsey about these men wh.>
had written on the check-off book,
declaring that they no longer -belonged to the I'. M. Vi. ot A, This I
think was in tie lirst week ol September. No reply arrived that I am
aware of and Mr, Lindsey stated that
the letter had followed >hltn from cue
place to another aud that was the
reason he did not reply, Well, after
this President Sherman, national
board member Sharpe and our secretary, Mr. Biggs, waited upon Mr.,
Lindsey at his office and Mr. Lindsey
stated he would semi his reply in
wriling to the union. A special
meeting was called and statements
made by Pres dent Sherman and,
board member Sharpe in reference to
their conference with Mt,. Lindsey and
alter waiting Ior the letter in reply
lo tie conference, it was suggested
ihat a special committee lie appointed, including President Slier man, to
gu and see Mr. Lindsey and ascertain
the reason why the letter had not
been sent and President Sherman refused to go and on his suggestion a
resolution (which has already been in
print) was passed stating that we
would come out when called upon by
the disiriet officials. This wus sent
to Mr. Lindsey by uur secretary and
in replv Mr. Lindsey sent luck a letter with part of the minutes of the
conference which drew up the present
agreement, stating tihat our representatives at the conference gave
iheir promise that then* would be no
discrimination against non-union men;
alsu the reason that it was lelt out
of the agreement. Alter it was read
to the meeting Iti was decided t-o call
a special meeting fur Mr. Sherman to
explain what was nnt iu hy Mr.
Lindsey, and as Mr. Biggs was une
of the members of that conference, he
was asked if the statements made hy
Mr. Lindsey were correct. He said
as far as he could remember they
were, but- one word altered would
put a different, face upon it. President Sherman was in town after this
special meeting was decided upon but
tliere was uo special meeting held to
explain this or that, but a special district board meeting was called and
Mr. Sherman chiwe his own man to
represent the men ot Feinie and we
knew no more until the notices were
posted up, which read as follows:
"Acting under Instructions of
President   Mitchell,   we   hereby
give all   non-union   miners nutice
that seven   days   after this date,
we will cease to   wurk with ncn-
unioii men.

"September llth, 1006."
We, acting under these instructions,
ceased to work at the end of seven
days and the President, well knowing
that these notices were pustwi up because they were put   up un the Fri

in all unbiased minds, i think thut
when President Mitchell sees Uus, ti
will demand a lull investigation intu

why ihe president lelt lus dutj lo go

again ihat I have im use tut a nonunion man and if it was understood
that every man was expected tu imn

demand it al lhc start and then wt
would have kiiuwu whai ue were do

with non-union men and we uw lol i
that the agreement has luvn brqkvn
by allowing men to lake tin u names
il Uie cheek-off. li the right course
had hem taken, ii would have been
settled now and 1 believe that iu
body ol men have n righl lo be modi
the calspaw ol an-, man As th
days uf feudal wars are past, when
men wlm felt burl al Iheii neighbor's
'uudtict called all th.-u soi rants to

believe Uiat we as men
out own personal oplnh
led blindly, tte have a
.ill that is being done
aud tu demand tn Imve

the cause of sn misleading and mysterious a telegram being sent. I
could say a great deal more that 1
know but vvill withhold It for the
present. One thug I will say, that
alt I have said heiVis only thad tin
fellow workmen and tthc public might
know the true slate nf affairs and put
the saddle on the right Worse.
Nuw, il is evident llat we, as miners, have some grievances against the
company and thai the management
have some against us, but what is tho
difference? Ham' we no remedy an!
have thousands of men. Women anl
children to suffer without any attempt mode to have these differences
put righl'.' Surely in this, tbe 20th
century, men can meet together an-d
have clear understanding and make
strikes a thing of the past. Wherever the fault lies, let M he brought
to light and as one whn believes in
conciliatory measures, I would suggest that a board uf Inquiry he appointed from the two locals 'to enquire
Into this trouble and demand that the
two parties involved, explain their
position. If either of these panic-.
are afraid to agree ti) this course, we
can come to no other conclusion (hau
that the party who is afraid to do
(his is in the wrung. I.i-t nn one be
led away by sentiment hut plain facts
and let uur motto lie as one that
adorns many ol the trades union banners, viz:     "Come, let us reason   to

one more sacrifice of a British colony
