Operator* and Men Simply Waiting for Something to Happen
The labor sit nation remains practically as il has been since the adjournment of the conciliation board.
The parties seem tt- feel that Dr,
Gordon was riiqhi when he deprecated
any further attempt to bring them
together until the whole situation
has been thoroughly investigated by
the board,
While there is no change in the
situation as between the operators
ami men there are features that Indirectly indicate, a rather gloomy
prognosis. The Crows Nest Pass
Coal company have dispensed witli
the services of all but heads of departments in their office staffs. This
in itself is significant. The large
western consumers of coal ami coke
have seriously turned tu other sources of supply and are preparing tr
continue operations independent of
supplies from this district, and the
Great Northern (railway has ample
fuel supply from the mines in Wnsh-
ingtin at prices which make that
road independent of these mines. The
Canadian Northern railway and the
Grand Trunk Pacific art* hauling coal
from tbe Grent Lakes. The installation of oil burners on the mountain
section of the Great Northern is
proving a boom to that road iu the
matter of saving on cost of fuel ami
The Ore in the big mine at Michel
makes the probable date of re-open-
ing that mine problematical. Had
the mine been working the fire would
have been discovered in the incipient
stage nnd either scaled oil' or extinguished. This mine employed about
live hundred men, Other mines in
the Pass have suffered physically hy
the cessation of operations ami
would Im- unable to operate with" a
full force for some time even if the
labor trouble were sett lis! at once.
Tlie-result of the long drawn out
struggle in Nova Scotia, where the
result of final settlement is a distinct
loss to the miners, is making the
local miners canvass serii ttsly the
Wisdom of their course in lying up
these mines without an investigation
Many of the men would welcome an
opportunity to go back to work at
the scale offered by the operators at
Calgary. The great majority of the
foreign element are prepared to go to
vvi rk at any time.
It is understood that Dr. Gordon
leaves Winnipeg at the week-end and
thai the sessions of the conciliation
boanl will be resumed on Tuesday,
at      Coleman.      Uta— Fernie   Free

Society Girl Company Shows Big
Gains During Past Year
The third annual meeting or tho
Society Girl Mining Company, Limited, was held at the office of the
company at Movie on Tuesday last.
The report of the directors submitted
to the shareholder.s shows thai splendid progress has been made hy ihr
company during the past twelve
months. One year ago there was
little ore in sight and there was a
deficit of over $1,000. Ntnv Ihc
company is out of debt, has a good
hotly if ore in sit-tht ami is in sphn
did shape for continuing Ihe work of
Since the last annual report was
rendered develowpinent work litis been
enrsied ou as follows: Drifting, two
hundred nml eight feet; cross-cutting,
twenty-four feel ami Wising scvcnly-
live feet. This work was done at a
cost of nine dollars a fool Crude
shipping ore was encountered in the
west drift one hundred and thirty feet
from the main tunnel, ami was followed on the vein one hundred and
ten feet. The face of the west drifL
is stiti in concentrating ore Prom
the stupe ami development worn
since the crude ore was encountered
last December, the ore broken
amounted to approximately twelve
bundled tons. The milling ore is
still on the dump and over three
hundred tons of crude ore were sold
at the Trail smelter. This ore
netted the company with the government bounty $3,100.18, or about
MO.20 per ton. The ore being shipped now is of better grade than that
shipped last winter. The ore now
runs from fifty to sixty per cent iu
lead and from ten to twenty ounces
in silver. If the e* mpany makes as
gond progress during tin- coming year
as during the past year the shareholders can be reasonably sure of
netting a dividend.
The   following    board of directors
was elected for the ensuing year:
C. C, Farrell—President.
R, ft. Qwynne—Vice-President,
■f. P. Parrel!—Secretary-Treasurer
Philip Conrad and F  J, Smyth.

Intend to Have Sawmill Running
by First of August
The organization "f nur company
now complete, and we are ready
to begin active operations at once,"
said It. Campbell nt Movie last Sim-
day after returning irom Vancouver.
Mr. Campbell is president ol the
Campbell Lumber Company, Limited,
which has recently acquired extensive
timber limits near Kitchener. "In
these limits," continued Mr. Campbell, "there are six thousand four hundred acres and some <f
this land adjoins the Kitchener
townsite. A good portion of the
timber is white pine, which always
commands a top notch price in this
country. A sawmill was built on
these limits three years ago, but
only ran for a few months. This .mill
will be overhauled and will Is* put in
shape to have a daily capacity of
thirty-five thousand feet of lumber.
We expect to have it ready [or running by the first ol August. A feature new to lumbering operations iu
this part of the country will be an
aerial tramway to convoy the logs
to the mill. This tram will be
eight thousand feel long, nml when
used will have a saving of $:t a
thousand t ver the.old system of
getting in the toga These trams
for logging purposes are used quite
extensively In South America."

receiving attention to the extent -if
twenty-five thousand dollars, while
the Philip road is receiving attention for seven thousand five hundred

In Its presenl condition lite Conservative party was described in
Mr. V. I.. i-'owke, M.P, fm Smith
Ontario, at a reciprocity mooting al
Whitby, Onl., last week, wlilch was
Addressed by lion. A. (i. MacKay
and himself, as a "Higgledy-piggledy"
mess, at otitis willi one another."
Sometimes, he said, Mr. Borden was
leader and some times tu- was nol.
If lie were nol a man of large views
he would not Ik; able U) hold tin-
place he dies. "1 believe -Mr, Bor
den is a great, noble-minded mini,"
said Mr. KovvKe, "who wishes to-do
his best for tht: people of the Dominion of Canada; hut lit* is surrounded
hy a following thai renders lingo lol')
any good qualities he mi^M possess."
After expressing a sense or grali
tmle to Hon. Mr, MacKay for tlie
high public service lie has been rendering hy. the interest he lias- amused
Ihrough discussion ol reciprocity all
over Ontario, Mr. Fowko, in speaking
ot the debate on reciprocity in tlie
house at Ottawa, said it was- well
known that the Tory party was
divided, a very considerable number
knowing thai if Ihey voted against
reciprocity they would seal lheir
doom as politicians; so Ihey raised
every side issue in nrder to obscure
Ihe real issue. But the Conservfl
lives must face a vote on this issue
ami it would lie carried, he believed,
hy a large majority.
Hun. Mr. MacKay, In dealing with
Ihe historic pail uf tlie argument,
which in his hands proved a musl
powerful contention for ihe agreement, read from a Conservative campaign fly-sheet used in llu* general
election of 1900, entitled "Markets
fm Farmers," the following sentence
expressing the aim of the parly in
lliis regard: "Access d llu* Canadian market for agricultural pro
duels of the United Stales only on
condition Ihat similar eiitniaee shall
he given for Canadian products into
their markets." This had been the
Conservative party's attitude until
last January, as lie showed hy quo!
ali< ns from Sir .lohn Macdonald and
from an article hy lion. Oeo. E.
Foster in tin* University Magazine of
last December.
Answering the criticism alleging
secrecy in the tariff negotiations, Mr,
MacKay quoted from the speech from
the Throne on the 17th of Novcmnei
last, indicating their extreme open
ness, ami referred to the declaration
of Mr. Nnrthrup, of Belleville, that
"if such a bargain as thai could he
made, Ihey would all throw up their
hands for it." No man on either
side had up to January expressed any
opposition to some such agreemenl
being made. Down lo tin* 1st of
January lasi no Conservative had
opposed il, ami the Liberals had
taken their stand for it as far hack
as 1*03.
The conduct of the opposition in
lighting the tariff agreement was
severely criticised by Mr. MacKay
lie argimd that nn self-respect Ing
Canadian would think of handing
over Ihe government of the eotmtr\
lo men who could not govern them
selves, and who were constantly
quarreling among themselves over
trilling matters.
Discussing the question "hy and
large," Htm. Mr. MacKay pointed
mt Ihal the United States'is a consuming country, where sixty per cenl
of its people are urban ami consumers, and forty per cent or less are
rural producers; Canada, ou the i liter
hand, is a producing country,     wilh
hose proportions reversed. II was
better, In- nigucd, to have three
markets1 titan two. And he showed
by ligures whal ihe trade might he
with the duty removed.
Mr. R, It. Mowbray, who was
chosen as ihc local candidate for
the legislature ul a convention in
llm afternoon, speaking as a fanner,
said that he could nol understand
why any farmer should be opposed to
llu- reciprocity agreement, Ho
thought il would he of advantage l*1
hiin, ami if il helped Hie fanner il
musl help every other industry. "If,"
said he, "1 cm, while living outside
the city, place my products upon tho
Toronto markcl ami nol he compelled
to pay $2."j lo $30 in order to he
permit till io gel them there, l
would have no desire to tie uuuexed
to ihr eiu oi Toronto; bo if tho
tariff is removed noon natural pro
dflicts we have tin cause for feeling
Ihal we should he heller off if annexed lo ihe United Stales."

How Old People
May Prolong
Their Lives
At advanced age tlie organs act
more slowly than in youth. Circulation becomes poor, blood thin and
watery, appetite fitful, and digestion weak. This condition leaves
the system open to disease such as
Coughs, Colds, Grippe, Pneumonia, Rheumatism, etc.
VINOL is the greatest health
creator nnd body builder we know
of for old people, as it supplies
the very elements needed to rebuild wasting tissue nnd replace
weakness with strength.

Note the variation in the lize of the three
loaves of bread. Quite a marked difference,
itn't it ? No. 1 is from SEAL OF ALBERTA
the Faultless Flour; No. 2 it from so-called
high grade flour; No. 3 is from a second
grade flour. The same weight of flour was
used for each.
SEAL OF ALBERTA flour makes a larger
loaf because the gluten in this flour is of
better quality, and you know that determines
the quality of the bread. Then it will absorb
more water—there will be a greater expansion of the dough, hence a larger, lighter,
richer, finer flavored loaf—qualities you
always seek, but sometimes miss in other
brands. It's all in the flour. USE SEAL
OF ALBERTA. Speak to your grocer
about it.
Read the next announcement — it will
have something of interest.

Tin- valley from Briscoe southward
in Canal Flats, being rrom six to
led miles wide, is favorably affected
bj ilie warm Chinook winds, nml the
temperature, is turthor moderated by
Ibe presence of several lakes, the
largest being Windermere or Lower
Columbia lake, and Upper Columbia
lake, which are respectively eleven
ami fourteen miles in length, with an
average width of one mile and a
half. U is beautifully timbered
with fir, spruce, poplar, and1 birch,
with open prairie spaces, park like in
appearance, The timber being light
would he easllj cleared, costing] nol
more than twenty dollars to twenty-
five dollars per acre. Mr, Middle
Inn says of this district: ''This is
certainly the beauty spot of the
whole volley, varied as il is by
lakes, streams, prairies, benches and
mountains. It is truly the paradise
uf tbc tourist, tlie hunter, the angler,
and all lovers of Nature."
The composition of the soil varies,
due tn altitude and other local conditions, but, as a rule, that on the
eastcrn s,de of ibe valley is llghtci
Ihan un the western side. The east-
em slope is also a 11 file drier, and
irrigation is more necessary, due
principally t< the fact thai the snow
melts so rapidly under the influence
id the Chinook winds and ihe after
noon sun Ihat tbe mo.sliire runs off
instead of penetrating the soil. The
growing season begins about two
weeks earlier, as tlie eastern benches
gel all the warmth of tbe afternoon
sun long a let tin se on the west are
in shallow. In 1009 ii was noted
that the strawberry nop was ovei
on Ibe east side before that on the
wesl had ripened, and the same
would apply In all kinds of early
vegetables ami fruit, a fuel which
cannot lie regarded as a drawback,
as the latter crop is just as valuable,
ami the difference in lime of ripening
will enable   the growers    to employ
Hie same gangs of pickers,  In        the
mutual advantage oi both, as the
longer season of work should attract
Inbor lo the valley. The soil of the
district, in common with ihe rest of
ihe valley, seems specially adapted
tn garden vegetables, which, given
proper attention in tin* way of cut
livattnii ami waler, attain a si/e ami
quality unsurpassed by any other
part of British Columbia.
Considerably more than half the
cultivable land ol this pan of the
valley lies on the wesl side of the
Columbia river, and the soil, as a
rule, is rather heavier than on the
east side It varies from a deep,
heavy, grey clay loam to a trille
shallower red clay loam, with a clay
or well-cemented gravelly subsoil
The limber is heavier uml more dense
on this side, except upon the lowei
levels, where it is lighter and more

Anyone who has hoard 'Judge Ryan

Ids language. Ills words (low like
nil from a jug, and he has an Unlimited fund or adjectives at his command. The other evening nt the
Cosmonolitan hotel the judge and
some others were telling stories, mid
finally the subject drifted to gnats.
The judge was telling nt an incident
that happened at Hie last Dublin
fair be attended before he left Ireland. .It was about a gnat thai
broke out nf his pen and took after a
boy. In finishing lho story the
judge rose from his chair, knocked
the ashes from his pipe and delivered
himself thusly:
"The goat hurled the previous end
of his anatomy against the boy's afterwards with an eagerness and vein

A correspondent would be Informed
as lo the "precise meaning)" of the
word "gink." We may say thai Ihe
beauty nf this chaste little Wordlet
is that it has im "precise" meaning.
It covers a multitude of beings,
chiefly human, ami has an elastic
quality of application ihat is a mar
vol of convenience. Ii is naturally
Indefinable since it is employed nn
ilu- spur of the moment ti designate
anyone who cannot bc readily defined. For'Instance, the gink who asked for Information—pardon I the Inquisitive and mildly facetious person
who asked ur for this information—
hut there's you are! You see, don't
you? A "gink" is a word only, or a
substitute fnr words. It is a language shorthand fnr busy and careless
people, a short cut in expression.
We never heard lho term "gink"
applied In a female human being
whether a lady, woman nr person,
so we may hazard ihis approximation in dt liniieness.  negatively stat-
l. that a "gink" is not a female.

him carte blanche, Nol until tbc
work was approaching completion
did Tabor lilmsclf como near It, and
ilieii only because lho decorator had
senl him word that he would like his
opinion. Tlie decorator accompanied
him all over Ihe building. Alter

liitnsell quite satisfied.
"flul tell me one thing," he added,
"what mini are vim making famOu..

"That, sir. is a true presentment
of Shakespeare."
