UNION MEN BUT
NOT THEIR TYPE
British Miners Prove the Statements of Pattison to be
false.
The Islander representative
during the past week has had
several interviews with the British miners who were held up in
Vancouver by the paid agitators
of the U. M. W. of A. Two of
these miners were Thomas Purvis and William Pattison, direct
from Durham, England, who
made up their mind3 to visit Vancouver Island and see for themselves, cost what it may. Irrespective of what the paid agitator
said to the contrary these two
miners came direct to Cumber-
1 md. refusing to be directed to
any part of the province.
We understand that Thomas
Parvis, one of the miners here
today, is a member of the executive for one of the local unions of
the Durham Miners Association,
and was told, at the time of his
leaving England, to proceed to
Vancouver Island and investigate
the cause of the trouble. In the
event he was not satisfied with
conditions at Cumberland he was
instructed to notify the union at
once. When asked by the
Islander what would be his
reply to the Durham union Mr.
Purvis said they had found conditions a great deal better than
they were explained to them by-
Caleb Dando before leaving England, and they have found the
trouble existing here just as
Dando told them. There is absolutely no deception on the part of
the Canadian Collieries (Dunsmuir) Ltd. or any of their representatives. The Islander being
anxious to know just exactly
the statements that were used
by the paid agitator Pattison,
who attempted to detain these
British miners while on their
way to Cumberland and for that
purpose proceeded to Revelstoke,
requested Thomas Purvis and
William Pattison to state what
they were told on the train coming west.   They said as follows:
"When Pattison got on the
train at Revelstoke he asked us,
'Are you the fellows bound for
Cumberland?' Of course we said
yes. Then the agitator paid: T
intended meeting you fellows at
Calgary to get you dropped off
and sent up to Fernie and the
Crows Nest Pass. However I am
glad that I have fallen in with
you, to stop you from going to
Cumberland as there is a strike
on.' Then the balance of the
miners gathered around to see
who this agitator was. Then
there was trouble as to whether
we should let the paid agitator
into the car or not. Then one of
our boys shouted out: 'We don't
want to take any notice of Pattison but go to the far end and see
for ourselves.' Then another of
the boys shouted out to the agitator: 'What sort of a union is it
that you represent, anyhow.'
When the paid agitator was allowed in the car to have his si y 1 e
f,ave tis to understand that No. I
4 and No. 7 Mine were full of
gas, and through lack of experience between thirty and forty1
men had been killed during the
month, and that it was never
known to have a funeral, they
bill ied the bodies in the dark like \
they do with dogs in the old
country when it comes licence
time. There was a strike on at
'Vancouver Island with 10,000
men out of work at Cumberland,
with soldiers guarding the men
CITY COUNCIL OBJECT TO
COURT STENOGRAPHER
The City Council held their
regular meeting in the council
chamber on Monday evening. The
minutes of the last meeting were
read and adopted.
Po'ice court fines collected hy
the provincial police for the
month of May amounted to W5,
which was handed over to the
city less court stenographer's fee
and meals for prisoners.
The aldermen had a decided
objection to Edward W. Bickle
acting as court stenographer,
thinking the work should be done
by the city clerk.
The following accounts were
referred to the finance committee
for payment:
Wesley Willard  $ 6.75
A. H. Peacey  _.   6.50
Jas. Brown    9.00
A. R. Kierstead    4.50
Alex MacKinnon  38.20
Provincial Gaol, Nanaimo 23.50
Cum.& Union Water Works   5.00
•S93.45
The police commissioners: their
powers, free speech on the street,
and certain parties being told to
move on by the police, received
considerable discussion. Wholesale liquor houses made application for a reduction of their
licence fee, which was refused.
The Bluff Won't Work

H. E. Ridley, representing Ford
Motor Company of Canada, paid
E. C. Emde, their local agent, a
visit during the week.
to work, also when they returned. Every now and again some
of the men going to work were
shot down. All the men at No.
7 were being hemmed in by a big
stone wall. When the paid agitator told us that the Canadian
Collieries were going to put us
there and once inside the stone
wall we would never be able to
get out, that those who would
not go to work would be chained
up until they did go to work,
that the strikers had several
cannons placed at different points
on the Island to blow us up if we
attempted to go to work. That
there had been an explosion at
the mines that day with the result that thirty men were killed
outright."
The Islander prints the above
so tha'. its readers will understand
what terrible statements these
paid agitators will make to gain
their ends. No sane man would
believe, unless he heard the statements made, that there were
such agitators on Vancouver
Island who would make use of
such falsehoods. The only reason we print them is to expose
these terrible disturbers of the
peace, so that our Nanaimo
friends may know what to expect
and guard against it. It is plainly
seen these paid agitators set no
value on the truth.
After the representative of the
Islander had recovered from the
effect of such falsehoods Mr.
Thomas Purvis went on to say :
"Since our arrival we have
looked for stone walls and we
fail to find them, we have looked
for the cannons the strikers were
suppose to have and we fail to
find them, we have looked for
the chain and shackles that Pattison said were here to chain us up
with and we fail to find them.
In fact we have looked for everything that the wretched paid
agitator told us on that train
from Revelstoke tn Vancouver,
and after making a diligent
search, investigating to our own
satisfaction we brand the paid
agitator Pattison as untruthful.

OUTPUT FOR THE
WEEK 10,718 TONS
With the output climbing up
the so called holiday is declared
off. " Everybody works but
father—and the agitators." The
Cumberland miners think it very
foolish to waste any more valuable time over the U.M.W. of A.
or its foreign agitators; life is too
short, far better to ignore them
to day as six months from now.
It must be done, and we say do
it now. The Canadian Collieries
(Dunsmuir) Ltd. mines here are
now full steam ahead.
No 7 at Bevan piled up another
record on Wednesday by hoisting
486 tons, on Thursday No. 5
stepped up another notch by producing 579 tons, and the whole of
the mines increased their output
yesterday when it reached 1980
tons for one day, almost up to the
2,000 ton mark. The total output
for the week ending June 27th
being 10,718 tons.
Mr. J. D. Winningham is sell-

Cumberland Loaded Coal Train
for Union Bay.
NOT AS REPRESENTED
BY KINSMAN
The Nanaimo Free Press, in a
recent issue, says as follows:
Mr. Kinsman of Nanaimo, who
holds first class papers, recently
returned from Cumberland and
states that there was about 50 to
IHO white men working there,
all the remaining miners being
Asiatics, He further states that
the working conditions were deplorable.
Since the above appeared in
print we have made it our business to search for a little information concerning Mr. Kinsman,
who came to Cumberland and
worked seven days as a fire boss
in a certain section of No. 4 Mine.
He scarcely gave himself sufficient time to find out what kind of
men worked at that particular
mine, until he came in contact
with some schoolmates of his
who are idlers. They persuaded
him to return to Nanaimo antl
exist on the four dollars a week
the U.M.W. of A. pay. One
would expect from a man holding
first class papers in the province
a statesment near the truth, or
at least ordinary intelligence. In
the event that the truth would
make this district appear better
than he would like it be he ought
to refrain from saying anything
against it. Oh no, Mr. Kinsman
had been to Cumberland, and
while here wished to be transferred from No. 4 Mine to No. 7
Mine. Being unable to secure
the transfer he joined the forces
of the U.M.W. of A. at Nanaimo.
The latter are destined. to go
down to defeat on this Island as
sure as night follows day. If Mr.
Kinsman had made inquiries
from old timers they would have
told him there were no more
Asiatics working in the mines of
this district to day than there
were ten years ago. The number
of white men employed, which
will go almost into four figures,
being the same as previous to the
socalled holiday. Cumberland is
normal, Mr. Kinsman, and the
conditions are good.
Successful Candidate.
The following miners were successful in passing third class at
the recent examination held by
the Provincial Board of Mine
Manager Examiners.

last visit to Cumberland.
Cumberland Hall has been
leased by tbe Crown Theatre of
I.'qnaimo, and a high class picture
shoTrV will soon be inaugra'ed.
Mr. William Witchell, who has
been with the Crown in Nanaimo
for a long, time, will be in charge
and promises to give the Cumberland people a picture show in all
ways the equal to the Nanaimo
Crown, which is considered to be
as good as* any in the province.
Daily changes will be made in
programme in the Cumberland
house, the best and latest in film
makes, good service and courteous treat men'. So says Mr. Witchell. and if his promises are
maintained there is no reason
why the new Cumberland picture
bouse should not receive a fair
, s'larc of the local patronage.
AT BEVAN
New School House Completed
Street Grading and Insulation of Light & Water
The town oflievan is where the
Canadian Collieries (Dunsmuir)
Ltd. operate their No. 7 Mine,
there being employed some 250
men. The town itself is now
forging ahead, new families are
coming in daily to occupy the
houses vacated by the so called
holiday seekers. The Provincial
Government has just completed
a fine new school house for the
residents of that triving little
town. Streets are being graded,
electric light poles erected and
dwellings wired. In the near
future Ihe streets, residences and
business houses of Bevan will be
illuminated with electric light.
The water works are extending
their system and carrying the
water into the dwellings. Another
new store is almost finished indc>]
pendent of the three already
erected anil will cost from ten
thousand to twelve thousand
dollars. The Bevan Hotel has
under way a large addition and
expect to have it completed within a few days.
General Manager Coulson has,
we understand, promised to set
aside a certain portion of ground
for a recreation park, which is
badly needed tliere being a fine
football team among the miner.".
It is proposed to organize a brass
band for the town of Bevan. The
Rev. F. Franklin-Watson visited
Bevan during the week with a
view to establishing a church at
that point, the vast majority of
the late arrivals being Church
people.
We are informed that No. 7
Mine has all the men they require,
in some cases men seeking employment have been unable to
obtain it. The greatest need at
Bevan to day is a post office. The
citizens of that place don't like
the idea of having to come into
Cumberland, a distance of three
m les, for their mail.
Sale of Work and Garden Party
The garden party and sale of
work, given on Mr. C. H. Tarbell's lawn, on Tuesday the 21th,
under the auspices of the Holy
Trinity Guild, proved a great
success in every way. The morning broke dull, and there were
showers at intervals, lint at
about three o'clock tliesun shone
out brightly and the remainder
of the day was all that ci uld be
desired. There was a large
crowd of ready purchasers of the
pretty and useful articles displayed on the various stalls. The
Ladies stall was presided over by
Mrs. Franklin-Walson and Mrs.
J. Stewart. The Girls Stall by
Mrs. and Miss Clinton and members of the Girl's Guild, this stall
realized the largest amount of
$75. Mrs. Jack Roe's stall, consisting of plants and (lowers, was
most attractive and buyers were
numerous all the afternoon, not
a single plant being left. The
afternoon tea was under the
superintendent of Miss Horbury
and Mrs. Grey, who were assisted at the various tables scattered
around the lawn liy Mrs. Jeffery,
Mrs. Spicer, Mis. Mordy. Mrs.
Hart, Mrs. Tarbell, and Mrs.
Laffere, The ice cream count, r
was under the direction of Mrs.
Peacey, who was al ly assisted hy
Miss Horbury and Miss Ramsey.
The amount of -200 was realised,
and the ladies of Holy Trinity
Guild desire to thank those who
so kindly donated articles of sale,
candy, refreshments, etc. THE ISLANDER, CUMBERLAND, B,C,

room It Is inspected by the chief valet
to see that lt ls properly brushed and
Irontsil and ready for wear.
The king lt may be noted, never
wears the same suit two days running. As a rule, His Majesty would
not wear tha same suit oftener than
once ln the week, and when lt had
been worn about two dozen times It
wotrld be put out of the royal wardrobes.
King George customarily rises at
•even o'clock, when lno takes a cup
ot light coffee, which the chief valet
brings him directly the king enters
his dressing-room. His Majesty
then baa his bath, which ls slways a
cold one, whilst the king Is In his

BABY'S OWN TABLETS

When one medicine is used ln a
home for a number of years It ls the
strongest testimony as to the value
of that particular remedy. Thousands
ot mothers have been using no other
medicine but Baby's Own Tablets for
years—iu fact many of them say they
would have no other medicine in the
house. Concerning them Mrs. Jas

havo used Baby's Own Tablets for
ten years and would not be without

long noted for his penchant for making cutting and cold remarks. Some
years ago, says the railway official
who tells the story, Lord Curzon came
down from London by a railway not
famous for punctuality, to address a
political meeting. I-rord Curzon was
In a hurry. The train made Its
twenty miles an hour all right, but
the future Viceroy thought it the
slowest train on earth, He said so
to the guard. That dignitary, as usual, took the remark as a personal insult. If you don't like the speed of
this train, mister, he said, you can
get out aud walk! Lord Curzon was
not crushed. Tart as vinegar came
his reply: I would, only they don't expect me till this train gels iu.
On most of the English railways
there ls a regulation which permit patrons, on payment of a stipulated fare
to lake with Ihem cerialn pet animals
or birds. A short time ago a maiden lady appeared at one of the country stations bringing wiih her a whole
menagerie. She had a dorr, a cat,
a rabbit, a squirrel, a parrot and a
smalt turtle. The dog and the parrot wero allowed transportation under tlio rules, but In order that the
passenger might take all her pots, the
guard proceeded to classify them as
follows:
, Cats, said he, is dogs; rabbits Is
dogs, squirrels in cages ls parrots,
but this 'ere tortoise—
lie stopped and scratched his head,
staring at tho creature in perplexity.
Finally an Idea came to him. This
is a hinseck, and hlnsecks travel free.
War an Expensive Luxury
Jules Roche, the French statlstlcan,
warns his countrymen, that a European war would be an expensive luxury. Ho says that the Franco-German war cost about $1,665,000 a day
and that today a general mobilization
would cost about $1,000,000,000 for the
firBt two months with a minimum of
$6,000,000 a day after two months.
This would cover the bare military
expenses for 20,000,000 men, but the
actual cost would be vastly greater,
teeing that commerce and agriculture
would come at once to a standstill.

MORE THAN EVER
ncreased Capacity for Mental  Labor
Many former tea and coffee drinkers who have mental work to perform
day after day. have found a bettor capacity and greater endurance by using Postum Instead of tea and coffee.
A Western woman writes:
"I had drank coffee for about twenty
years, and finally had wliat the doctor called "coffee heart." I wus nervous i.nd extremely despondenl; had
little mental or physical strengili left,
had kidney trouble and constipation."
(Tea ls Just as harmful because It
contains caffeine, the samo drug
found ln coffee!.
"The first noticeable benefit derived
from the change from coffee to Postum
was the natural action ot the kidneys and bowels. It two weeks my
heart action was greatly improved
and my nerves steady.
"Then I became less .despondent,
and the'desire t, be active again
showed proof of renewed physical
and mental streugt'i.
"I am steadily gaining In physical
strength and brain power. I formerly did mental work and had to give
it up on account of coffee, but since
using Postum I am doing hard mental
labor with less fatigue than ever before."
Name given by Canadian Postum
Co., Windsor, Ont.
Postum now comes in new, concentrated form called Instant Postum.
It ls regular Postum so processed at
tbe factory that only the Bolublo portions aro retained.

Miss Gussle lingered for aa hour and

taking her departure to reappear next

the next seven days, snd each day ah*

found bim waiting at the plum trees.
He had furbished himself np as best
he could and looked more presentable.
His lameness wss about gone, and tbe
saddle from his horse was on th*
ground' beside blm.
"My dear young lady," he began, "lt
goes without saying that my gratitude
ls unbounded. Did I promise not to
make you a proposal of marriage?"
"I—I don't remember," prevaricated
the girl as a red flush crossed her face.
"I think I did, snd I wlll stick to
my promise. It wss to be romance
and nothing beyond. No love, no matrimony—Just romance. I might make
an exception ln your case, however."
"Plenso don't-thst ls, whst sre you

There, we have It. You see, I bsve

thcui off for half an hour, wounding
two nud being himself grazed by a
huilct. Then, as (be survivors began
to work nround to his rear, the man
mounted bis broncho and fled down
the trail ut full speed. The three un-
wounded men pursued him, firing
whenever the curving trail brought
him Into sight. The girl In tbe gorge
heard the shooting and shoutlug, but
could not locate tbo sounds. In her
alarm she rose to her feet end was

Miss Gussie grabbed, at the. horse,
bnt the bad man was too quick for
her. He raised his hat and smiled as
he rode away, and sbo sat down on a
stone and cried. She was still crying
when the sheriff and four men came
galloping up and plunged down Into
the gorge. They were back lu llv*
minutes, and the official asked:
"Young woman, have you seen anything of a man around here this morning?"
"He rode off on my horse half an
hour ago," replied the girl.
"So he lived through lt?"
"But the men hsd no right to jump
his claim when he was Ul," ssld Miss
Gussle ln a spirited way.
"Jump his claiml Do you know

Manufacturing   Is   Progressing  With
Great Rapidity sn the Plains.
Agriculture is now tsken for grsnted
en the prairies, but what about manu-
faoturing? The example Of Winnipeg's
rise in a little more than a decade
to the position of fourth industrial
city in the Dominion, has, had the
effect ol limbering the imagination of
conservative Canada, and now very
often the remark is made that Manitoba is more like an eastern province
than a member of the middle western
family. But. when one talks about-
manufacturing in Saskatchewan and
Alberta, the imagination of some very
tntelligent people refuses to-work;
they shut their eyes and say, ss pomp-
. ous*. little Governor .Simpson said
years ago, when speaking of the possible agricultural development of that
part of the Northwest Territories now
called Saskatchewan, "it is impos-'
sihle; it can't be done."
But it is being done. Manufacturing is progressing rapidly in both
Saskatchewan and Alberta. The kind*
of manufacturing plants that are being established in these two prairie
provinces may be classed largely under four liesds. namely, our mills,
brick and clay products. lumbering
with its tributary industry, planing;
and steel and iron work. Generally
speaking, with the exception ot milling, these different forms of manufacturing have been introduced into the
Middle West as the result of the
strong, growing local demand for
building materials. So far as an export trade is concerned, the manufacturer of the West lias very' little to
hope for. The- day msy come when
factories in Saskatchewan and Alberta
may be able to compete with those of
older districts in Canada and the
United States in supplying the export
■ markets of the world with brick an*l
tile.'doors and sashes, and iron and
steel ornaments, but this article proposes to deal only with the conditions
which are influencing the establishment of plants in the West now, and
it' may be safely said that hopes of
an export trade are not a factor in
the ease. Too many articles of manufacture are being imported into tlie
West at the present moment to bid
anyone have hopes of a very considerable business outside the boundaries
of the Dominion.—Norman Lambert,
in Industrial Canada.

Good te Know.
If you have ever attempted to em-
brolder or stencil a piece of heavy burlap you bare doubtless grown angry
and discouraged at tbe tendency of ths
edges to ravel,
It yoa bad taken time to overcast all
the edges this could have been prevented. But It takes time. Next time you
have to work with burlap ln making s
cushion top or curtains simply stitch
the cut edges on the sewing machine.
Mske tbe stitch long and tbe tension
loose and then sew tbe edge ln a wavy
line, keeping close to tbe edge all the
time. It won't fray, and tt won't take
long to fix it this way. The stitching
won't show wben tbe cushion Is sewed
up or the curtains are hemmed.
Geological Congress.
Tbe organization committee to arrange for the International Geographical Congress, which is to be
held in August, recently met at the
Chateau Laurier at Ottawa and prepared the program for the coming
congress.
The committee is composed of some
of the foremost geogologists and educationalists in Canada. Dr. F. D.
Adams, of McGill Univcasity, was
president. The big gathering in August will last eight days commencing
on the 7th, and thirty-six countries
will be represented.
The invitation to the International
Geographical Congress to hold its next
meeting in Canada was given at the
instance of the Federal and Provincial
Governments and the Royal Society
of Canada and the Canadian Mining
Institute, representing in a truly national sense the great mining industries of the country.
The congress will endeavor to provide for a uniform system of mapping,
nomenclature   and   classification    of
rocks, fossils and minerals and in other directions will try to broaden and
extend   the   usefulness  of   geological
science.   A series of excursions will
i be arranged to enable the members
! to see various interesting portions of
) Canada   that   illustrate   special  geo-
; logical features.
To assist the congress in its work
1 the Dominion Government has grant-
; ed $25,000 and the various Provincial
! Governments $17,000. Both Premier
j Borden and Hon. Frank Cochrane at-
1 tended the meetings of the committee
I' and gave the members warm assur-
! ance of their sympathy and approval.
\ The funds slready provided from vsr-
' ious sources for the work of the con-
i gress amount to $70,000 and it is ex-
i pected that this will be liberally augmented.

Offertory Would Fill Wagon.
It would be difficult to conceive ol
an offertory at a church service requiring a wagon to take it away.
Something like this is what happened
at Fort George, in the diocese of
Moosonee, when the offertory was
taken up. The "plate" contained seal
skins, husky boots, deer skins, mats
and other articles insnufaetured by
Indians and Esquimaux.
The Bishop of Moosonee, Right Hev.
J. G. Anderson, gave an interesting
aceount recently of the work being
done among the Indians and Esqui-
maux in his "little diocese." At l-'oit
George s most remarkable sight was
seen. Years ago the Indians and
Esquimaux were the mo;t bitter oi
enemies and killed eaeh other on
eight. Last summer the bishop held
a service at which both Indians anil
Esquimaux sat and entered into the
devotions in the heartiest way. Hymns
were sung first in one language and
then in the other, then prayers were
said in the two languages, and finally
the bishop gave sn address in each
language.
Died at Age of 101.
James Ward, the oldest resident il,
Lincoln county, and of at least a
large section of Ontario, died recently st the County Industrial Home
at the unusual ege of 106 years. Mr.
Ward was born in Ireland, lived for
a number ol years in the United
States and lived with his granddaughter at Port Dolhousio until she
died last winter. Then he was placed
in the home shortly after Christmas,
which fact unquestionably grieved
him, and it was then that, he showed
the first signs of physical disin'ogra
tion.

ART OF THE JAPANESE.
Th. Charm tf Their Paintings Is lis
Their Bold,  Free Hand Strokes.
To outline briefly the peculiar methods of the Japanese artists, hj uses
neither oils, • anvas, cardboard nor
Whatman paper, but employs instead
painting silk or absorbent .paper,
with ink applied with a well watered
brush, with or without other colors.
There is a fixed sequence in tbe
strokes of his painted objects, with
an established order in which, these
objects are introduced into the composition.
The artist rarely onllines. He prefers to paint without defining boundaries. This charming manner is
known ns bokketsu. He paints upon
the mntting floor seated on li is heels.
He makes no tentative stroke... He
knows in advance what is needed
and paints from a well stored and
trained memory. He never retouches.
A stroke onee made can neither be
recalled nor concealed. He paints
with the greatest freedom ot the arm.
with the brush held perpendicularly
and witli a stroke vigor "like the
movements of a dragon, and lie invests each stroke with a sentiment
corresponding to the. very nature ol
the thing painted. Nor must he hesitate or delay in the net, else the
psychological moment would be gone.
He never sketches casts or living
models, and Buddhist influence has
always prohibited the nude in art.
In painting robes or other garments
there are eighteen different ways of
executing the lines thereof. In
sketching-from .nature lie interprets
it not photographically, but aesthetically, and omits unessential details.
He 'paints no shadows nor eoneeal's
in chiaro oscuro anything he paints.
Finally he seeks for repose or freedom from all care as the ideal condition under which to pursue his art.
Nor can it be insisted upon too
strongly that the chief charm ol a
Japanese painting lies in the inspired strength and character oi the
brush stroke, which conveys a deep
if unsyllabled sentiment, not only
corresponding with the emotions of
the artist when producing the work,
but also enabling us to see with his
eyes and feel with bis soul. Through
tho msgio .1 such stroke is reproduced the very nature of the thing
represented.
Rejected Engines el War.
Certain engines of war have been
rejected by civilized nations in times
gone by because they were too destructive and too horrible. England
has still in keeping a secret war plan
of the tenth Earl of Dundonald which
the authorities rejected because,
while it was infallible, it was too inhuman to use by man against man.
Even Louis XV. of France had backbone enough to refuse Dupre's terrible invention. If the story of this
discovery be true the plan was to
create by a secret process a conflagration whose intensity was but increased by water. U would burn town
or fleet. Louis refused to have tlie
secret published, and it went down
to the grave with Dupft.
The Bad Soldier.
In one of the barrack rooms a soldier, not having much time to dress
for guard, had cleaned his boots very
well in front, but hardly at all behind. One of his chums, noticing
this, Baid:
"Why don't you clean the backs ol
your boots, Pat,"
"Oh," said Pat. clapping on his
helmet and hurrying out to parade,
"a good soldier never looks behind."
In consequence the adjutant awarded Pat three extra parartres, and a lew
days after his chum, seeing a great
difference in his boots, remarked, "I
thought a good soldier never looked
behind. Pat?"
"No," replied Pat, "but the adjutant does.—London Answers.
The Adder.
A full gTown adder may measure
two feet in length and about six
inches around the thickest part of its
body. Its movements are sluggish,
and, of course, the idea that it is
capable of transferring its head from
one extremity to the other every six
months is due simply to superstition.
The fact is that the tail of this snake
does not terminate in a point, as with
ophidians generally, but is stumpy
and rcsembltf the head so much that
it is difficult for an observer situated
at a distance of a few yards to distinguish the one from the other;
hence the story of its being two
headed, the fallacy of which no intelligent observer could fail to detect.

Defying all superstition, Miss Ethel

April 4, for ber wedding day. It Is
quite fitting that ber marriage to Dr.

which In days gone by was known ss
the "little Wblto House."

a large amount These new goods,
however, are very lovely and are so
wldo tbat tbe entire cost of material
suIB.-lent for a gown Is not inoro than
$8, and there Is Ibe merit of fashion
about these matei-lnls which Is not obtained In tbe cheaper grndes. Some
aro of blue, pluk or lavender nnd have
Uie effect of dotted Swiss The dots
are small nnd while. There Is a deep
white border on the goods In nny color.
Brocade ratine Is also new. This Is $4

Tuk Uritisli miners wlio aifived during the pant week,
Mill who were inetnbers of tlie party held up at Vancouver by
('liii.s Pailisini the /mid sf/itator of thu U.M.W, of A.,we now
telling their tales of the hardships they have experienced by
taking tht advice of an angel in  disguise who ;iif>tnised  t"
liffiieiid them, find tlieni  wink, su/jply   their  families  with
money, and take the greatest  of chit1 of them, even  to   the
extent nf supplying tlie champagne tend oysters if these British
miner., wuuld only i-efuoS to go to CumrKtr]>tud or work for tin-
Canadian Collieries (Dunsmuir) Ltd.  This prince of falsehoods
left nntliiiig unsaid that lie  thought inny  have r  tendency to
keep these men  front Vancouver  Island, knowing  that the
U.M.W. nf'.-l. hnd been driven back t<> their last stand so I'm
us Cumberland was sniieerued.    The statements thnt this paid
agitator is accused of making lead one to question as to whether
the man was sane or insane.     He even flushes  a  cheque and
tells them it is I'm' ^500, and when he  gets into Vancouver he
will distribute it among {.item.   Anything </oes, hut they must
not woik.    If they  work they will he scabs, with stockades,
cannons, soldiers, etc. tn contend with.    These, miners, strangers in « strange land, take Pattison's advice, to  their sorrow,
and are sent to Lytton by the U. M. II'. nl'A., from there fa
Lillooet tn work on a construction toad.    With 50c. to support
themselves for three clays these men reached their destination.
Realizing their mistake after working a couple of days in the
hnt sun they decide lo try and get to Cumberland and see for
themselves,    Hitli this object  in view they start to Ira in p a
distance nf 67 miles frau Lillooet In Ltytton.      With a debt nf
iSw.i'O foi- transportation the// walk the distance  without, anything to eat, when Thomas Ostle falls sick by tin- wayside antl
is taken to the hospital at Lyttnti.    Ostle sends telegram after
telegram to U.M.W. nl' A and to l'attismi informing  ihem
that he is sick and destitute.    These gentlemen agitators turn
a deaf ear to these appeals, fnt'Ostle says he never received
any reply.    At last the  stranded  destitutes get*  word  into
Cumberland.   Although the wanderers had rejected the advice
of their friends the Englishmen who came on  ahead of them
sent out a relief partly, who went to Lyttun and brought the
strangers to Cumberland,    The men are now  working in  the
mines here every day with no desire of ever payiut/ any attention to any member of the (7.M. ll'.nfA , who are the deceivers
of these British miners,    Almost all ace now here working, tin-
remainder are anxious to reach Cumberland as soon us they
can make enough Hiuiiey  tn pay  their transportation.      Tinmen wlm have wen and heard both sides of the case declare
that there has heen no misrepresentation  nu the part of Caleb
Dando or .the Canadian Collieries (Dui)s?nuir) Ltd, at any time,
and the statements made hy Chris Pattison and every U.M.W,
of A. agitator are absolutely false,    The Durhmii '/liners have
now bail a taste of both sides ami will inform their friends iu
England of the facts.
Yet Frank Farrington, writing to lhe United Mine Workers Journalof the l!*th inst., says in part: "Having received
information that a force of sixty miners from Durham, England, were enroiite to Vancouver Island arrangements wire
made to intercept them nud apprise Ilium of the true state of
n If) i it."
(Seasonable
Goods
The Nanaimo Free Press, of Tuesday, June '21th, reprints
an article from the Couset-t and Stanley Chronicle, the writer
being James Smith, Immigration   Agent  and  /luctioueer, of
Aiintii'ld   /'lain,   Durham   ill   which   lie   says  he   is  accused
throughout the Durham district of being the agent who seiii
the Durham millers to this country,    He further states that
he told the men they were going to where there >vas a strike.
He says the miners left on the 10th May and dates his article
May   25tli.      This auctioneer, like   the balance of them,, is
trying to furnish infiirinutiofi about something he knows imtli-
iiia about.      He is not a miner, neither is he associated with
the miners in Durham.      From what we can gather from the
men here this same individual   ten*   very   anxious to be the
bookin,r a<rent for the men  who left.    For some reason  he
failed to obtain such a favour,    Hence his kick.

R. H. Hardwicke, Manager.
Hon. T. W. Crothers, Minister of
Labour, to make a thorough
Investigation.
Ottawa, June 21.-Hon. T. W.
Crothers, Minister of Labour,
announced to The Colonist correspondent today that he expects
to take a trip to Vic'oria and
Vancouver Island, leaving about
Julv 1, in order to make a first
hand investigation into the labour
troubles at the Vancouver Island
coal mines.
The minister is not optimistic
that he will be able to settle at
once the long drawn-out and vexatious dispute between the miners
and mine owners; but he is hopeful, by meeting personally the
employers and employees, to at
least set in motion machinery
that will bring to an end the
difficulties.
With so many conflicting stories
the minister finds it difficult at
th;s distance to get at the bottom
of the facts of the case. He has
thus decided to visit the mines
and to get at first-hand the grievances of the men and the answer
of the companies, and to arrive,
by personal observation on the
ground, at the merits of the two
sides to the controversy.
Mr. Crothers will use his influence to get the two parties together and will likely hold a series
of.conferences with represanta-
tives of the United Mine Workers
and the companies involved.
Mr. Crother' present plan is to
leave July 1, and he will go direct
to Victoria without a stop. He
will probably be at least a week
on the Island. His return trip
will be by way of Crow's Nest
Pass, where he will stop off to
visit the coal mines.
Hon. J. D. Hazen, Minister of
Ma-ine and Fisheries, is also
planning to make a trip to Victoria early in July.

The case referred to was the

strike, and was the result of two
women, armed with tin pans,
meeting several lire bo.ise3 returning from their work in No.
One mine on Thursday last, beating a tatooon tin pans and calling
tee men "scabs" and other insulting names.
The women were represented
by Mr. Leighton, who informed
Magistrate Simpson that they
pleaded guilty, regretted the
occurrence, and promised as far
as they were concerned, such a
thing would never again occur.
Magistrate Simpson expressed
regret at being called upon to sit
in judgment on such a case in
which women hud placed themselves so far below the level of
the average man. The men could
say things which women could
not, and if men han differences
between themselves and their
employers he hoped the women
would keep out of the quarrels.
He hoped a way would be found
to settle the present labour difficulty, but he also hoped the men
would keep their women out of
the affair. Society had indeed
fallen to a very low ebb when
women used such language as
htid been used by the two accused. He would fine them each $20
and costs, or in default thirty
days in jail.

The Secret
Marriage
By Alfred Wilson Barrett
Ward, Lock * Co., Limits*
London, Melbourne A "reroute.
Si
(Continued)
1 tried 10 reason with her. I told
her If she would wall a year we could
get married again In public or whatever elsu- the liked, but she wouldn't
liaieu to reason or anything. She
swore her reputation would be gone
— was gone—and that my affection,
couldn't be worth much If I wouldn't
acknowledge her as my wife all for
the sake cf the dirty money.
But whar was I to do? I had rnar-
,ie.l her and I was ready to marry
her again, but I could see we would
never hit It off. But as for the
illl'ty money, well, I had never earned
it sixpence in my life and never
could. I had lived at the rate of
fifteen thousand a year and I was
up to lhe eyes In debt and she wanten
111c 11 throw away a fortune because
a woman or two talked a bit of scan-
ilal.
Uut ihere was moro than that in
it. I was in the hands of some of
the worst money-lenders ln London.
Knowing that I should be a rich man
one day, I had never bothered much,
nud 1 had done one or two rather
queer things to get money from
ihem; things, that la to say, that were
Koing to look queer If our marriage
came out and I was to turn out a
beggar. 'I'he men were all right for
ihe present, ot course, not Buspectlng
anything: but I knew their.sort nnd
how they would turn round on a chap
they'd robbed if he made a slip, and
Edit ".nldn't yield an Inch. And
1 her- cue ot those fellows seemed to
t eglri to smell a rat, and I saw If
something didn't happen, I'd he ln
queer streQt.
Well, 1 suppose tlie strain got on
my nerves and I didn't lake the right
lone wiili i-ltla, and she began to get
frightened of mo and to avoid me,
antl I knew she was going to do what
i-h" had said. And I got desperate;
you see it meant everything to me,
and if she had eared for me she would
have seen that, but she didn't care,
and us I say, 1 got desperate. One
night, after we'd had a final quarrel,
1 went 10 the flat in Victoria Street
after they had got homo from some
party-. The hall-porter was out; but
I knew rho Hat. and I went upstairs.
As luck would have It, thev had left
ihe front door open aud I went ln.
Something, Ure'devil. I suppose, made
me move quietly, 1 wanted to surprise them: vAl I passed Eda's door,
1 raw that It wah open, that the room
iva.1 lighted, and that she was lying
on the bed dressed. She lay so still
ihat 1 thought she was dead, and then
1 thought what a difference that would
make lo me.
I went up to lu , and she opened her
tyes and lay there looking at me. 1
aslted her if she was still determined
to announce our marriage. She look-
nil at me as tt she hated me, i.nil she
said yes—1 was mad, 1 suppose—she
sneered at me, and I put my hand
over her month t. stop her—aud I
hi pi i! there.
Ii was too late thro, and I' knew 1
I was in for it.    I wrote the note, im-1
j Hating Violet's handwriting, and niak-
j ing out   Eda  had committed suicide
I through     Jealously.     Then     I turn-
I ed   on     the    gas—she   had   often
told me about the tap being, loose
and tbe tklng has happened before;
1 shut the door quietly, and I went
out, and no one saw me and no one
heard me.   That was my luck.     If
the porter bad seen me, or Violet had |
heard me in tho passage going ln, 1!
should  have  heen  saved—so  would I
Eda.     Going out—well, 1 only wishj
they had caught me then,      I   hav ■
had a bad time since.
Rlvlngton paused end was silent
for a moment, his chin resting on his
breast and his arms crossed.
Yes, 1 have had a bad time since.
That  uole  worried me.      1  couldn't I
make out why nothing had come out |
about it, or where it had gone.     li
thought Violet   had   lt,   though, she
swore she hadn't.   And so It was you
nil  the time,  and you  havo hunted
me down, and you have got me now,
and there's no mercy for me, eh?
Ho looked from one of the men to j
the other.
The  Major turned away,  but Nell;
frowned.
What mercy did you show Eda
Brooke? he said sternly. What mercy
did you show Violet, In taking her
away from her friends, and risking
her life to save your Blilu.
Rlvlngton looked at him tor a second with hate ln his dull eyes.
You'iv very virtuous, Mr. Private
Detective, he 6ald. Well, 1 suppose
there's no help for lt, and 1 must Btay
here like a rat ln a trap till— He
paused suddenly, glancing ln tbe direction of the passage, and then continued, raising his voice, stay here
till the police come and—   Hullo!
Involuntarily, both Nell and Easton
turned, following the direct.on of his
gaze, and then ln an Instant they realised that It was not Rlvlngton who
was in the trap, but they. For there
before them, was Coombes, and In the
passage at his back, shown dimly by
the flickering light of the candle, stood
four men, headed by Professor Wicks.
Rlvlngton's eyes flashed. Here,
quick, Professor, he cried. By George,
you're just In time! How did you
And me, good man? These scoundrels have dragged me ln here and
were going to murder me If you bad
not come.
Nell flashed round on him.   It. ls
I he that Is the murderer, he said. And
in another minute tbey will be here
from Scotland Yard to take him off.
Touch ns at your peril.
The Professor, who had stepped forward, hesitated and glanced at his
men, an awkward looking crowd; but
Coombes caught hia arm, his eyes
quite meeting over his noso with excitement .
Don't you believe lt, Professor, he
said quickly. This chap here ls i>
convict. He was with me in Pentonville Prison, and I saw him and
bis pal knock Mr. Rlvlngton down
and drag him away, and I come and
tell you, as you knows. Mr. Mv-
Ington'B a gentleman, as you knows,
too.
The Pro.'essor .-' Ued at Rlvlngton
and t'.ien at Nell. Ah, he's a convict
1b he? he said, rolling up his sleeves.
Well. 1 don't know anything about
murders, and I don't want to. I know
you, Mr. Rlvlngton, sir, all right, and
I know this here ls the chap that
came Into my school just now with
a yarn and tried to bash me, and
now I'm going to bash him, Scotland
Yard or no Scotland Yard.
Nell made a shout and a rush for
the passage, and the Major, charging
low, hurled himself after him, but the
Professor and his followers were men
whose business was fighting, and
struggling valiantly, Easton and his
friend went down.

CHAPTER XXn
When Kaston recevered his senses,
bruised all over and still half dazed,
he found himself lying on a sofa in a
room which he did not remember
ever to have Been before. And for
u time he lay looking about him, wondering vainly where he was and what
had happened to him.
Then his glance lighted on a woman who was occupied In rolling a
bandage by tho window at tho opposite
side of the room, and he recognized
the nurse he had seen nt Violet's bedside on his last Interview with the
young girl. And memory began to
return to him, and with memory, wonder. '
Good heavens! he thought, where
am I then, and how Is Nell, and what
hns happened.
He fiat up stiffly, and the nurse
raised her head from her work nnd
came across to bim, looking down
pityingly.
Aro you better? Bile asked. Poor
fellow, the) did knock you about, lhe
brutes,
Tho Major nodded easily. Yes, 1
am all right, 1 think. Uut whore am
I, and bow ls my friend, Mr. Nell?
he asked.
You are at Professor Wick's. You
were brought here lasi night, and your
friend too. He ls not hurt very
much, bin here ho comes, the nurse
replied.
The .Major looked eagerly at the
door, and at that moment Neil entered, limping and with his arm In a
sling.
He smiled cheerily when he saw
Easton Bitting up, though the smile
evidently cost him something.
So you are round again, are you?
he said, walking to tho sofa. Good.
I wasn't sure you hadn't been knocked out. I must say Uiey let us
down fairly lightly, considering,
Easton groaned. I am glad yon
think bo, he said. But for heaven's
sake tell what has happened. I remember nothing after we charged
those fellows.      Where are we?
I don't remember much myself. We
are   In  the  School  of Arms,  at our
old friend Wick's, He has done every- j
thing he could to make up to us for;
the mauling he aud his boys gave us!
He Is in the depths of despair over,
the whole business, but those rascals
Coombes and Itlvington, took him In,
and of course to him   we   did   look
rather fishy, as you must confess.

Cured By Toning the Blood *nd
- Strengthening the Nervei
It Is the opinion of the best medical authorities, after long observation, that nervous diseases are more
common and more serious ln the
spring than at any other time of the
year. Vital changes in the system,
after long winter months, may .cause
much more trouble than the familiar
spring weakness and weariness from
which most people suffer as the result
of Indoor life, In poorly ventilated and
often overheated buildings. Official
records prove that In April and Hay
neuralgia, St. Vitus dance, epilepsy
and other forms of nerve troubles are
at their worst, nnd that men, more
than any ether time, a blood-making
nerve-restoring tonic I: needcu.
The antiquated custom of talili sr
purgatives in the spring ia useless,
for the system really needs strengthening, while purgatives only gallop
through the bowels, leaving ycu
weaker. Dr. Williams' Pink Pills
are the best medicine, for they actually make the new, rich, red blood
that feeds the starved nerves, and
thus cure the many forms of nervous
disorders. They cure also such
other forms of spring troubles
headaches, poor appetite, weakness
In the limbs, as well as remove unsightly pimples and eruptions. In fact
they unfailingly bring new health and
strength to weak, tired aud depressed men, women and children.

The Tomato
A doctor ascribes to* the tomato
the following Important medicinal
properties:—
First, that the tomato Is one ot
the most powerful cleansers of the
liver and other organs; where calomel was generally used as an aperient, tomatoes may be substituted.
The tomato 1b probably oue of the
most effective and leaBt harmful remedial agents known.
Second, that a chemical extract maybe obtained from ir that -rill supersede the use of calomel lu tbe cure
of disease.
Third, that lt h:..-. been successfully
used ln cases of diarrhoea.
Fourth, that when used ns an article of diet, lt ls almost a sovereign
remedy for dyspepsia and indigestion.
Fifth, that lt should be constantly
used, either cooked, raw or in the1
form of catsup.

AN OLD SETTLER
FINDS QUICK RELIEF
CHAS,     MARSHALL    CURED    BY
DODD'S KIDNEY PILLS
Mrs.   Marshall  Tells How Her Husband Suffered, and of His Speedy
Recovery When He Used the Great
Canadian Kidney Remedy.
Parkinson, Algoma, Ont. (Special-
Living far from towns and with doctors not within easy reach, many of
the settlers have found Dodd's Kidney Fills nu    inestimable   blessing.
One of these ls Mr. Charles Marshall,
Sr., whose recovery from a severe
case of kidney disease has recently
been the cause of much satisfactb.
to his family and friends.
"My husband was suffering very
much With his back and legs," Mrs
Marshall says, speaking of her husband's cure. "He went to see the
doctor, and he told him he had urinary trouble, but ha did not seem to
get any better.
"Then I sent for some Dodd's Kidney Pills. Since taking them, he has
no more pain ln his back and legs,
and his other troubles are all gone.
"I am Indeed thankful for what
Dodd's Kidney Pills did for my husband, and I hope other sufferers from
kidney disease will benefit by his ex-
periei.ee, r.nd use Dodd's Kidney
Pills."
Urinary troubles are caused by diseased kidneys. So are backache,
rheumatism, lumbago, and heart disease. The natural remedy is to cure
the kidneys by using Dodd's Kidney
PiUs.
A London Morgan Story
A little anecdote, hitherto unpublished, says Ths Bystander, shows a
pleasant side ot Mr. Morgan's character. On one occasion two gentlemen who were arranging a small exhibition of old English silver, wrote
to the millionaire and asked whether
he would be willing to lend. A letter
came inviting the two gentlemen to
call at Prince's Gate and see what
they would care to borrow. Mr.
Morgan took them down Into his
basemeut, and all the cupboards were
opened lor their Inspection. In n
quarter of an hour $30,000 worth
of old silver had heen chosen. Every
piece which had been suggested as
suitable for tbe exhibition was willingly lent. Take one more, Bald
Mr. Morgan, and the two gentlemen
chose a small salver of Queen Anne's
day. To their surprise Mr. Morgan
rather gruffly refused to lend this
piece, and offered no explanation. Ultimately the chosen pieces were taken
in a cab to ihe exhibition by one of
tlie gentlemen and Mr. Morgan's valet. Curiosity prompted a question
about Ilic Queen Anne salver, Mr.
Morgan, said his valet, did not lend
you that piece because it belonged
to his father.

ZAM-BUK CURED HIS ECZEMA
Mr. James McComh, of Thornton,
Ont., writes: "For eight months I
suffered from eczema and could get
nothing to give me relief. I heard of
several cases where good results had
followed the use ot Zam-Buk and decided to give thla remedy a trial.
Within three daya I felt much better,
and within two weeks the tores were
entirely cured."

Judging by Appearances
A gentleman was on a motoring
tour, when his car broke down near
a small village? It was late ln the
evening, so he decided to put np for
the night at the only inn the village
possessed. After a rather scrappy
Bupper he was shown up to hll bedroom, but soon after the landlord had
come downstairs again hla guest
leaned over the balustrade and called: Landlord, landlord! Do you think
I'm going to clean my own boots?
What d'ye mean, grumbled the
landlord.
What have you put a polishing pad
on my bed for? demanded the guest.
The landlord came upstairs to look,

Tired and Weak
Nerves Exhausted
The feelings of fatigue and languor
which overcome so maty people at
this season of the year tell of the exhausted condition of the nerves.
It ls Impossible to keep up tbe action o: the heart and the vitality of
the nerves when the blood Is tbln and
watery, and this ls why nearly everybody needs tonic treatment ln the
spring.
Borne of the symptoms are restlessness, purposeless activity, Insomnia,
absent-mindedness, tired gait, lack of
ambition and enthusiasm, headache
and neuralgic pains, dyspepsia and
feelings of languor and depression.
Monotony of work and mental overstrain or worry sap tho nervous system, as does also the stre.mousness
of modern life, whether In the busi
ness or social world.
More and more men and women
are obliged to seek the assistance ot
such concentrated foods as Dr.
Chase's Nerve Food to re. .oro vitality to the tired hnd worn-out nerves.
Such treatment ls necessary, because diseases of the nerves i'o not
right themselves. As nerve force
runs low the digestive system fails
to extract the necessary uutrltlon
from the food. Dr. Chase's Nerve
Food supplies In condensed form the
Ingredients required, and restores
health.
A little pallencs is necessary ln
