him, and also tbe son and heir of tbe
Peltier household, W nii id Laurie
Peltier. During lhe trip the conversation turned Katou wise, uud opinions
were being expressed about those who
persisted In seuding out of town for
goods when tbey could be purchased of
lhe home merchant for about the same
money. Finally Peltier said: '1 don't
believe in that kind of business. I believe iu buying everything of the home
merchant when it is possible. 1 never
buy outside unless it is iu the line of
certain specialties that uiy family wants
tbat cituuot be secured InCruubrook."
lioth of the merchants, naturally
agreed wilb lhe sentiments so aptly expressed by Mr, Peltier. In the meantime Wilfrid, the sou, was playing with

M. Phillips, the pioneer rancher of
ihis district came up Tuesday from the
Boundary country. Mr. Phillips was
not feeling very good ualured nnd for
ihe best ol reasons. Last May the high
water iu tbe EJlk river carried out tbe
bridge ou the road from Klko to lhe
Boundary, and since that lime the community soulh of the Rlk has been cut
off from communication with their
markets. Notwithstanding the fact tha
thnt valley is oue of lhe richest iu British Columbia, it has been virtually
ignored by the government. It is impossible to get roads or tiails built, except now and then a paltry appropriation
o! $50 to $200. There is coal, oil, copper and gold in that territory and rich
agricultural lands, and the section is
being rapidly settled up, and yet after
live months the only thing lhal has
been done is to send Don McKay down
there to stop over nighl. No move has
been made to put la a bridge or to give
the people there relief. "We have to
pay our taxes," said Mr. Phillips, "hut
we get nothing for il, and we are getting
pretty near tired of the whole proposition."	
He Guts Over M From Joseph Brault
Monday Evening.
Hank   Eller    Nearly   Cuts   Off
"Deaiy" Campbell's Arm
With  an Axe.
Last   Monday   evening, while Joseph
Brnult, proprietor of the Canadian hotel
was at dinner with bis family, some one
entered his bed room and secured over
|6oo iu cash ami checks. The money
was in a long tiu box wilb other papers,
ami had been placed upon the bed during the dinner hour. There was a win-
low in the room left open at the lime,
aud when Mr. lit null returned be discovered bis loss. Information was
given at ouee to the authorities, and au
investigation instituted. The box was
of such a si/.e that it hardly seemed possible tint any one would have attempt*
ed to carry It olf thai time in the evening, for fear of being seen. The premises
and stables were thoroughly searched
hut no trace ot any kind was found.
Thc loss Is a heavy one, ami Mt.
Ilrnult Das the sympathy cf the people in
his misfortune, In all probability the
theft was committed by some one
familiar with Mr, Brault's habits, and
had kept bis eyes open for the oportuu-
iiy, and when ii arrived look advantage
of it.
Yesterday lhe tin box was found in
the swamp back of the tenderloin dislrict. It wai cut open and all tbe contents taken, W. I. McMaster, who was
employed on lhe C. P. R., but lately doing nothing, wns taki it into custody as
a suspect. He stonily disclaimed any
knowledge of the theft, hut was locked
up iu jail by Constable Morris,
Nearly Cut Hie Arm Olf.
Tuesday afternoon Hank Filler nearly
cut an arm olf a mau known aa "Peaty"
Campbell, iu Kimberley. Campbell's
dog was fighting wiih Kller's, wben tbe
latter thought his canine was getting
the worst of it. He took a pick handle
and tried to separate them. Campbell
would nut stand for it, and grasping the
the pick handle, jerked it away from
Slier. It is said tbat some bystander
at this juncture ciied, "Hit him with
the axe, Hank," and suiting the action
of the word Idler grabbed an axe near by
and made 11 lunge at Campbell. It was
impossible for Campbell to get away
and he threw up one arm receiving tlie
force of the blow. Tho two bones in
the fure arm weie cut elear through, but
this without a doubt saved Campbell's
bend. Dr, Harvey was in town and
dressed tbe wound and the man was
brought down ou the train and placed In
lhe hospital.    Noarrests were made,
Old Town, October, 32 : The last
week was one of unusual activity at
Old Town. The moving of the steam
shovel from the spur on tbe North Star
branch ts a piece of engineering lhat Is
attracting a great deal of attention.
The machine is one of the largest built
and intended to be operated upon railroad tracks only, and to move It eighteen miles over a mountain wagon road
Is a task thai retinites considerable
skill. Progress is made at the rate of
one half mile per day. aud it ls expected to be at lis destination In about
three weeks.
The task of gelling the steam shovel
un the mountain irom Old Town tu
Sawmill Creek is attracting many
vWllors, who wish lo witness lhe operation, which is somewhat Interesting.
Ties and rails are laid on the ground,
and thc machine propells Itself. For
some distance there Is a twelve per

some (un when li tackles It.

No Licenses Qranted In lhe Coal Company's
New Town,
The license commission met in Fernie
last Friday night to consider the applications for licenses in the new town the
coal company say it is to put on the
market at the Morrissey mines. There
were fourteen applications to be considered beside Uo more lhat are to come
up at a later meeting. The board consulted lhe petitions, and then adjourned indefinitely. The reason for this action
wus tbe best. Tbe board took the
ground tbat there was no town as yet,
no property on sale, und consequently
no reason why licenses should be granted for hotels. The hoard is to he congratulated upon Its courage and manliness. So lung ns pubic officials nre
controlled by a sense of public duty, ho
long will they have the support of lhe

A Complete Shut Down The Resilt it
It Is a Questtion of Wage Difference in thc Two
Morrissey Mines. Oct. ji.—At a meeting held by the miners yesterday It was
unanimously voted to strike, and now
the miue is closed. It appears thai it
has not been tbe custom to mine heie by
contract only in the sinking of shafts,
the miners having been paid by the dav,
the wages runuiiig from **j v lo $4 •"-'■
cording to the difficulty and location of
work, The management are now offering
60 cents per luu in o ie liinuel and 40
cents per ton in auother which is more
easily mined. The miners want 60 cents
iu both tunnels, which lhe msnageuieut
refuse to give, sutiug as their reasons
that should there bean equal price In
iu boib, ihe miners would naturally nil
wish to work lu Ibe tunnel when- the
coal is mined much easier, whict. wo-uld
mean inort* trouble from the less foilu
iiale ones It 11 laid that the trouble
really Itei with a certain element who,
It If claimed, are hIk-ivs anxious fora
strike under nny circumstances, In
support of th?s assertion il is claimed
ihat a great manv weie satisfied with Ibe
Conditions and were uuwiUtng to come
I'p to the present lime there bas beeu
no change in conditions at Fernie nul
Michel, but it is thought tbe miners
will follow suit.
Mr. Halaes  aad Mr.  Colemaa   Transferred

Hurbert Haines wbo has been manager of the Cranbrook branch of ibe
Cranadiin Bank of Commerce for
the past year and a half haa been transferred to Treberne, Man., and will leave
for hi* *>**w p'1*! next wrek. The departure of Mr. Haines will cause a feeling of serious regret in tbe buaiottt,
athletic aod social circles of Cranbrook,
He was ■ careful guardian of the Interests with which he waa entrusted, a
genial, wholesouled individoal and a
gentleman one derives pleasure from
meeting and knowing. He will be
missed in South Bast Kootenay and
Cranbrook, and bis friends here join
with Tbe HersM iu wishing him everv
prosperity and happiness in his new
field of work.
Mr. Haines has been succeeded by P.
K. Malpas, formerly in charge of the
bank at Fernie, and since tbe people of
ihat town speak iu the highest terms of
that gentleman, it is evident that Cran-
hroou is fortunate in the successor to
Mr. Hsines.      __^_^_
Mr. Celesta* to Leave
C. F. Coleman, for some time C V. R.
agent In Cranbrook, will leave tbis week
for North Hay, Out , but his new post of
duty bas not yet been assigned to hiiu.
The business men of Cranbrook will
miss Mr. Coleman. Agent for a railroad
company is not the easiest position la
the world, and yet Mr. Ooleman has
succeeded in performing hla duties in a
manner satisfactory to his company and
to the public. If there were more men
like Charlie Coleman in tbe railroad
business, there would be far less friction
between the companies and tbe public.
He possesses tact, good nature and ihe
right kind of business qualifications.
He deserves promotion and The Herald
hopes he will get it.
Mr. Hilyer, of Moyie, will succee 1
Mr. Coleman, and as he is already well
known here the people of Cranbrook
will be pleased to welcome him.

Perry Creek at the present time Is
tbe scene of the greatest mining activity In the district. The cause for this
is not far to find, lhe depression iu
the price of silver, copper and lead has
driven mining operators developing
gold properties, and the gold prospects
of I'erry Creek are attracting the at
tentlon of practical mining men.
Mining operators will nol keep Mill
and If ihey cannot operate In a certain
class of mines they engage In others,
Many people deplore the lead mining
situation of the Kootenays, but It Is nol
altogether au unmixed blessing. For
some lime silver-lead mining has been
very profitable, aud prospecting for
class of properties has been popular
until It seems as though the market is
deluged wlita lead. Al, this time gold
properties In the northern districts have
languished; but It uow seams to have
Its Inning.
History not unf requently repeats ltsel f
and li is interesting at this lime to recall some of the Incidents In mining In
the past, of other districts.
Previous to the slump in sliver Id
In 1803, Colorado was the banner silver
producing state of lhe union, while its
production of gold was only nominal
and a by-product In mining. At this
time there was a general shutting down
of silver-lead mines, and public soup-
houses were built In Denver to feed tbe
Idle miners. Hut wltb the energy and
genius characteristic of the American
people, they did not propose to remain
Idle because a certain Industry did not
pay, and to meet the exigencies of tbe
case they turned ihelr silver mines Inlo
gold mines; and In less than rive years
Colorado became the greatest gold producing state, outdoing California and
Alaska combined by several millions. .
The history of mining everywhere
shows that the class of metal most-,
ly sought for is tbe metal mostly produced. This is as true of copper and
lead as of gold and silver. A few years
ago a few large copper mines were supposed to be the only copper mines In the
world, and tbat tbelr owners had a
cinch on lhe market, but by tbat
fatality that seems to knock out all
human calculations, ground that was as
. "old-as the -hills," and upon which cattle
had graz ;d and farmers had farmed' for
decades suddenly became such marvelous producer of copper tbat outputs
have to be restricted to maintain prices.
The same I* fnt*» of ley.I
To one who tellects upon these  facis
and  observes  tbe   comlitlor.s   of  Kast
Kooienay, it Is only too obvious that all
- tbat is needed to put the mining possl-
bllltes of the distiict upon a gold basis,
Is Intelligent ttl'jrt  In   that direction;
and It is encouraging to observe that a'
practical move Is being made In that
direction.    Perry Creek is essentially a
gold producing district and  the desire
•  -oft securing geld properties because of
■  'the undeslrabllity of lend  and copper
properties Is doing more fur the dls
■'■ trier ' than many people appreciate.
t Statements by practical people from the
camps on tbe creek confirms the belief
ihat Interesting developments will be
made up there.
Do You Take The Herald?
You should if you don't. It gives the news of
the district. It works for the district. It is
owned by the editor and not by any clique or
faction. It is worth $10.00. It costs only $2.00
tbeiefore, employ fewer carpenters
fewer p umbers, fewer painters; and
any additional labor employed at tbe
mines would be more than offset by the
labor deprived of employment at the
other end of the line. Whenever the
cost of anything Is artificially Increased
—and if protection did not have this
effect tbe manafacturers would not wanl
It—someone pays the shot every time;
and that someone is tbe last mm in the
chain, tbe consumer, ihe artisan, and
the  farmer.
The lead miners who think the better
way to Improve their candition tstoagl
tale for lower duties on the articles they
require In carrying on their business are
on the right track. They cannot hepe
to maae the demand for their product
Increase by making tbelr product dearer
but If tbey can make It cheaper they
will widen tbe area of their market
Let them ascertain wherein tbe present
tariff pinches them, and agitate for an
amelioration ofthe conditions that op
press. It la tariff reform, not protection, that tbey need.
Baer, life president of the coal com'
any and the individual who claimed
that God had given him and his asso
clatea the divine right io control the
miners of that region, is so religious
tbat be will not ride In his carriage on
Sunday. Well, for that matter, neither
do the coal miners who work for him
- It is said on good authority lhat there
will be an election this fall. It Is said
on good authority tbat there will be no
election tbis fall.   Take your choice.
Talking of senseless custom duties,
the newspaper publisher is reminded of
the 30 per cent duty on printing material, and not a dollar's worth of It Is
manufactured in Canada.
Labor has won a great victory In the
Pennsylvania coat strike. Tbe operators have had to submit to arbitration.
This fact is chieily due to the justice
of tbe cause and the intelligence of
John Mitchell, tbe labor leader.
The Lead Slluatloo.
The question of how best to encourage tbe lead mining industry Is one of
great moment to this section of the
province, and it is the desire of all concerned to do only what Is best for tbe
Industry, any suggestions tbat may be
made wltb reference to the subject are
worthy of careful consideration, Tbe
Winnipeg  Free   Press,  discussing the
'matter, says;
The Increase of the duty on lead could
' not tie brought about without tbe read-
justmentof many of the tariff schedules.
- Lead is an  important  raw  material In
' ttie manafacturc of paints, gas and
drainage pipes, bullets and shot. A
sharp increase in tbe cost of their raw
material would necessitate an Increase
lo tbe duties on the finished products
•made from this raw material. An increase In the duty on pig lead would add
to tbe  cost  of  every house built lo
' Canada. Because of this lhe building
of houses would be restricted. Me i
would be deterred from building, or tbey
would build smaller houses.   They would
Tbe Strike.
Washington, Oct. HI.— The great
antbraci e coal strike Is settled at last.
A commission of six persons, with a
seventh, Carroll D. Wright, as recorder,
will adjust tbe differences between
operators and miner. President Mitchell, of the Miners' union, will urge the
Immediate resumption of mining, and
operations are expected to begin next
Tbe announcement tbat the great
strike was off ".as made by Secretary
Hoot, with exuberant good humor, a'
the White House, shortly afler 1 o'clock.
Organ!/ -d labor has a representative on
the commission In tbe person of E E.
Clark, grand chief of tbe Order of
Railway Conductors, named as a sociologist. The president added Bishop
Spalding, of Illinois, to tbe list of five
members suggested by tbe operators,
Tbe assent of the miners was given
through President Mitchell and Mr.
Sargent, commissioner of Immigration,
and of the operators through Kobert
Bacon and George W. Pet kins. The
final outcome followed a series of conferences beginning with two In the day
with Mr. Mitchell, and two at night
with Messrs. Bacon and Perkins. Events
moved quickly at tbe last, the president
being determined on a speedy settle
meat. The commission will assemble In
a few days and chon«*> a chairman,
probably General Wilson. It will then
arrange for sessions and testimony.
President Mitchell has called a meeting of bla executive, and the strike will
be called off and mining re .umed In two
or three days. Some members ot the
commission were named by Messrs.
Sargent and Mitchell, at their conference with ibe president today, and In
later meeting tonight Mr. Sargent offlc
tally represented tbe mine union leader.
In hla first Interview Mr. Mitchell assured the president of bis anxiety to
end tbe strike, but said tbat the miners
were firm In their position, and that be
could not afford to sanction any Imposition that would sacrifice ihelr interests
at this time. He was willing, however,
to overlook minor objections, and Indicated bis intention to demand only an
arbitration board which should be selected fairly wltb respect equally to the
Interests of both parties to the controversy While the feeling among those
who are familiar with tbo position taken by Mr. Ml'.chell ls not rich In optl
inlam, tt Is believed generally that the
differences existing between tbe miners
and operators will be resolved finally.
It Is said while it may take a few days
to bring tbem together tbe belief Is universal tbat the negotiations now pending will terminate the strike, It Is
pointed out by one wbo Is a recognized
authority on strike controversies tbat
in tbe event of an agreement on a commission of arbitration, It will not be absolutely necessary for President Mitchell at this time to formally declare off
the strike, He and his district presidents may order tbe men back to wotk,
holding In abeyance tbe formal declaration of the end of tbe strike until the
commission shall have made Its findings
wblch It is expected will be binding
upon both operators and miners.
A. A. Abbott, a New York capitalist,
has secured an option for sum,two on
tbe well  known Bendor mines, In the
Bridge rlvar dlatrlet.
Several Idle properties at Atnswortb
are expected to commence work short'
ly and will probably keep forces going
through the winter.
