A Ureal Ranch
Tbe Calgary Herald gives an elaborate description of the Cochrane ranch
ranch, which is the biggest concern of
its kind in Canada. Il consists of no,
000 acres of Hie choicest land in Alberta,
70,000 of which are owned outright and
40,000 held under lease from the BloOtl
Indians. There are about [4,00a bead of
cattle on lhe ranch of which 250 are
llunougiihred bulls. The beef ship-
n ic mi amount to about $100,000, mid
2,000 calves nre htaiitted each summer.
Tbe value nf the ranch and the cattle
is over a   million   dol lln ra,    The largest
shareholder is Senator Cochrane of Mon-
tn-nl, his sou, w V, Cochrane) who is »
■lirt-ctoi of the Ophir lode syndicate, being the manager.
The   Fernie   Coal   Miners  Take
Manager     Tonkins      Statement
Shows a Wage Scale That
is Surprising.
There is now every hope that llie
trouble ni the Pernie coal mines will be
peimaueutly settled Last week the
miners took a vote, and the number lhat
took no part would indicate a feeling of
satisfaction with the present system.
For 8)*J hours underground 33
For s hours underground 129'
Cnst no vote 10S
The above is tbe result of the vote
taken on Saturday last, an to whether
the men employed at Coal Creek mines,
continue lo work t.yt hours underground
as they have been lor the past two
months, or go back lo the old system in
force before Ihe stiike, of S hours underground, according to the agreement between the miners aud Mr. kTuiikiu two
months ago says tbe Fernie Free Press.
As will be noticed by the figures the
result la not satisfactory to either side.
The miners claim that tliey are now en-
tilled to the old system, but the manage
ment maintains that those not voting
show by their indifference tbat they are
perfectly satisfied with the present. A
ummlltee of the employees met Mr.
Tonkin ou Wednesday evening with a
view to finally settling the matter and
the committee will report to the Union
to-night. The general manager went
inlo thc question thoroughly. He showed tbe committee that the miners at
Fernie were making better wnges than
iu any other mining camp in the
country, liming the month of September there were fifty-seven miners employed in Mo. 1 mine and the amount
larned by them reached $6,760,60 averaging$120.71 cents per month for each
mnn. Tbe total number of shifts for the
month wan 1,295, making an average of
$5.1**; 6 10 cents a stun for each man.
The highest wage earned by any miner
.luring the month was $172.50 and the
lowest the handsome sum of $101.90.
The highest wage, per day earned by
iuy miner was 87.06, while the lowest
was 84 oS.
How tbe matter will end it is difficult
to say. Some of the miners are not sat*
Ohed with the way the vote on the question was taken, lint it is the opinion of
most of the those who are willing to ex
press themselves on the subject lhat the
union will let the matter drop and the
present system will continue. A number of tbe men are afraid that the car
system now iu force will lie weakened
as soon as the mines are in full operation, and that the present wage scale
will lie cut down. Mr. Tonkin assures
us that he bas no intention of doing
anything of the kind. He has already
piucbasetl four hundred cars to be added to the present stock, and in regard
to the wnge scale he is piepated In enter
into a two year agreement with the men

lhe whole valley and give communication to the mining country to the south

called for.

A Bad Law.
Daw Griffith, the Wild Horse pioneer,
was in .own Monday. Speaking of the
placer diggings In that historic gulch
he said ihat although between $*io,uuo,-
000 and $30,000,000 had been taken out
uf thnt valley there would stilt be more
taken out before work ceased. He complains of a defect in Ihe law that permit-
led any man or company holding a
water right for a placer ground without
using it by simply paying the rent, lu
this Mr. Griffith is right. It is a bad
thing for the country to permit any oue
to keep a valuable piece of ground Idle,
wheu by working it, it would pruve productive aud give eniplo) ment to a number of men. Tbis is a matter that
should receive the attention of tbe
authorities, as it is an injustice to tbe
people us a whole.
New Smell 1st Process.
The lest of the Garreslon pyritic
siueiiing furnace, made at Crofton on
Saturday, says the Victoria Colonist,
wns quite as successful as anticipated by
the gentlemen interested. It must be
remembered that Saturday's trail of tbe
Gnrrcston furnace was not a "blowin" of
the Crofton smelter; It was simply a test
of the working of the new furnace, in
which the proprietors of the Crottou
smeller have only such an interest as all
practical metallurgists have in a new pro
cess which promises to revolutionize lhe
treatment of ores. The furnace did all
that its inventors claim for It, and the
test would have proved an unqualified
success had It not been for an unforseen
accident which did not occur In Ihc furnace and for which it was in no way responsible.
The Garreston smelter demonstrated
that it could smell wet ore direct from
tbe mine without previous roasting or
crushing with the least possible coo-
sumption of fuel, that It could reduce
the low grade ore to a very rich matte,
aud it was on the point of converting
the matte into pig copper when the accident referred to intervened. Enough
was done, however, to convince all concerned that the furnace is capable of
performing all the work claimed for It
when it is In perfect running order.
The furnace also did a trick which has
beeu held an impossibility hy metallurgists -it reduced to matte, without
fluxes, low grade ore very heavily charged wltb basytes. This puts an end to
all doubt as to tbe posilnliiies of smelting the low grade ores of Mount Sicker
at a fair profit and assures the success of
copper Dining on Vancouver Island.

The people ol the filled States are
wrapped up in tbo great coal strike.
Thousands of homes are threatened
with cold and Industries are In danger
from lac:: ot fuel. Tha miners have offered to submit iiieir grievance to President Roosevelt or anyone he might
name, but the coal mit-era dee,tne the
proposition antl snap their lingers at
llie president That country has, by Its
high tariff laws and other species of
class legislation, created an clement
that bas become arrogant and dictator'
la) In its unprecedented wealth. Legislatures and conns are influenced, prices
absolutely controlled and the people
told to follow the edicts Issued by the
combines. That cr.untry deserves no
sympathy, Thc people are reaping
what they have sown. The people,
ihe misses, who by their voles could
exercise absolute power in formulating
the polhies of government, allow them
selves to be blindly led by the campaign
blarney of corporation magnates, and
therefore deserve the punishment; they
are receiving. The great republic,justly proud of Its past achievements, will
soon be a trust   ridden country with all
■ the wealth and power in the hands of
the few, The cost of living has Increased twenty to thirty-three per
cent and wages fail to show a corresponding change, Immense dividends
on watered stocks are robbing
the poor, while the rich, by every lux.
urlous Indulgence conceived by modern
man, cannot spend their Interest, Tbe
hypocritical cry of patriotism and the
II uniting of the stars and stripes In the
eyes ol the deluded masses has passed
one tariff hill after another and prevented the   passage   of  any   law   tbat
■ , would   prove  operative   In  controlling
...the grasping propensities  of the billion
dollar combinations.
i ,.,     Canada Is a rich   Held   for the u n pr In

the masses gladly take up   the refrain
the manufacturer and the combine operator will smile at   the ease of their vlc-

Canada should be for Canadians, but

. -M hail flxpecteit from whnt I had heard and

It seems almost pass human dnder-
standing that any man holding the
exalted position of a member of parliament should display such lamentable
Ignorance. It Is high lime that more of
the eastern members tomed the west
and became able to cast an intelligent
vote upon legislation til'-.ctlng tbe
whole country.
The people of Nelson should appreciate the fact tbat they have' the' bent
dally paper for a town the size of Nelson, published on tbe American continent to-day.

F.. C. Smith, M. P. P., was In town
last week, and while here left evidence
of the fact that he Is a successful
rancher. He sold potatoes that are
the finest that hnve been brought to
Cranbrook for many a day. They were
raised on his hull River ranch,
The eastern manufacturer who Is so
loud anil emphatic in his cry of "Canada for Canadians," should put his
shoulder to the wheel and secure legislation to bar the Chinese and Japanese.
But they won't. The manufacturer of
Canada Is like the manufacturer of the
United States. Ue believes In protection, so long as his Interests are protected. He Is not an advocate of protection that wilt protect the laborer as
well as the manufacturer.
The following statement by Manager
Tonkin of wages paid to Fernie coal
miners during the month of September
Would Indicate that the coal company ls
treating the miners in a most admlra-
-> ble manner:
During the month of September there
were B7 miners employed in No. 1 mine
and the amount earned by them reached
SOT(ii) Hi),  averaging $130.71   cents per
month for each man.   The total nunber
of shifts for the month was 1,805, making an average of 35,18 ii Ml  ashlftfor
'*mkcib man.   The  highest   wage   earned
--by and   miner   during   the   month was
M-W^iO-i'  and   the   lowest   the  handsome
<(smp.of SlOLUO,      The highest wage per
day earned   by   any    miner   was $7,00
*'4vhrte'ttie lowest was 51 (10,
If this Is true, and there Is no reason
tb doubt it, there ii little probability of
gny further labor trouble at I-'ernie.
