READY FOR ACTION
TO ANY LENGTH
Fiery Speeches at Miner*' Liberation League Meeting held
in Vancouver.
"The capitalists have called
your bluff. They know if they
can break you now, that you are
broken for all time. It is up to
you to let them see you are not
to be broken. The time has passed for protests. It is action we
want," said Mr. Robert Gosden,
of the I.W.W, in the course of a
fiery speech, at a meeting on
Monday night, called by the Miners Liberation League held in
Vancouver. He declared, referring to the strike of Russian railway laborers, that the I.W.W.
were'in the fight to the last ditch.
" I have been empowered to
say by the Russians who have
just quit the P.G.E. construction
work," he continued, "that although they can't join in your
discussion, that if it is action you
want, you can count on them to
any length, The situation in Canada at present is intolerable.
Why even in Mexico the peons,
if they don't get what they are
after, they fight for it. There
are no protests there, for they
have learnt long ago that action..
is the only thing."
Mr. Kavangh followed and reiterated his previous statements
about the militia. Sam Atkinson,
Miss Guttridge and others spoke
briefly, but most of them wandered from the subject. Frank
Farington also spoke. Just before
the. close of the meeting, about
300 Russians, who have quit
work on the P.G.E.grade, arriv-
to add their protests to those of
the League.
CANADIANIZED BRITISH
CITY.
Mr. Fred W. Kerry of Winnipeg, who has arrived at Bristol
to take charge of the Manitoba
offices in place of Mr. Robert A
Davidson, who is returning to
Canada, finds plenty of room for
his energies in that West of
England city, which has of recent
years become so "Canadianized."
The Canadian Northern Railway,
of course, created a Canadian
atmosphere there by making it
tre terminal port for their steamships and today it is said that no
English city of equal size has so
many Canadian connections.

DEPUTY MINISTER
OF LABOUR
Mr. F. A. Acland, of Ottawa, at
Nanaimo -Had Conference
With Executive.
Mr. F, A. Ac-land, Deputy Minister of Labor, is in Nanaimo.
Seen on Thursday night by a representative of the Herald Mr.
Acland stated he had nothing to
give out for publication.
He admitted that he was in
Nanaimo for the purpose of looking into the strike situation, with
a view to bringingabout a settlement if possible. Neither did he
deny that he had already held
meetings with representatives of
each side, but he was not in a
position to divulge what had
taken place or' to say whether
any proposals towards a settlement had been made.
ONE MAN'S MEAT-ANOTH
ER MAN'S POISON.
Here is what yet remains to
ie done in Nanaimo to take our
leautiful, and (six months ago)
prosperous little city fit to live in.
The cure, or course of treatment,
*ve may say, was set out in des-
latch from Nanaimo appearing
in the current issue of The Fed-
rrationist. "The events of today,
it says, "call for action," 'An injury to one is the concern of all'
must be engraved on our mem-
iry and analyzed with our intelligence to enable us to organize
our power to sweep out of exist-
ance every vestige of the loathsome plague of industrial despots,
bum politicians, clerical liars,
press prostitutes, scabs and scab
herders, who for years have
festered like huge ulcerous sores
on the comunity, sapping its
vitality and making almost a
hopeless contest the struggle for
bread and the fight for human
progress." Properly applied this
sure ought to be a kill or cure
remedy. But the writers have
overlooked the fact if all this
were accomplished there would
be no more work for Pettigrew,
Foster et al, What about getting
rid of these labor parasites for
a start. Even a press prostitute
has to work for his wages, and
work is the only thing the bosses draw the line at. Let the men
remember that these men only
prosper when all others are starving. They can only live by mal»-
ing trouble, and the worse the
trouble the fatter they get. They
call down industrial despots and
and they  live  directly  off  the

I It was tire lady of the perfume, the
j original of the photograph.     And her
hair, ber face, her figure surely stamp-
< ed her as Carmen!   It was strange ho
i had not seen her when ho entered the
' room; for even now people were glan*
j clng at he.-, whispering about her. She
was quite unlike any one else ln the
restaurant; hal.- as black as night or
blacker, and masses of lt.   Her small
1 oval face was set on a pillar of Ivory;
j lie wondered that this mass of won-
i derful  hull-  o.d  not crush  her  with
I Its weight.     He could see her eyes
were long and narrow; dark pencilled
I eyebrows;    narrow    forehead;    nose
! aquiline wit i  sensitive nostrils;  her
lips a strip of scarlet. Her akin was
olive with the texture of satin; round-
I cd limbs and figure graceful as a wild
animal.     Her dress  was black, the
skirt slashed, .:.'.   Tint,    a   gleam   of
scarlet, a large red rose rested in her
hair; she wore no jewels on her long
lingers,  earrings  of  Jet  and  a  long
rope of jet around her neck being tho
only ornament.
Tlie waiter removed HetherlDgton's
plnte and pushed another In front of
hltn. He wns unconscious of everything excepting this woman. Presently she turned dellbcra.ely nnd looked
at him. And he just continued to
stare. There was the faintest quiver
of her eyelids before sbj turned her
back on blm. Then Hetherlngton
bent over his Plato and pretended to
eat. Ho did not know whether she
had recognized him or not. He did
not know anything but that Bhe was
strangely terribly beautiful. There was
Iheaven anil bell In her face—a woman

Ships Are  Longest Lived  Transports
Ornaments last longer tban anything
else that man makes. There are
brooches and necklaces In museums
more than forty centuries old. Monuments, perhaps, stand seconS, and
houses third. The life of furniture
Is shorter still. There ls very little
furniture left which dates beyond tbe
year 1600. Pictures last longer than
furniture, and there are paintings still
ln fair condition which lias weathered
six centuries ot life.
Of all machines made b; man, probably none can compare for long life
with the cluck. Tho life of the clock
!s as much longer than that of any
other machinery as the life of a mau
le to that of a dog.
The French city of Koi. n has a
great clock which was bull', lu tbe
year 1389, and ls still keeping good
time. Except for cleaning and a few
necessary repairs, it has never stopped during a period of more tban five
enturlcs. lt s'.rikes the hours, aud
chimes the quarters.
There are still anon., nt least a dozen sailing vessels which have weathered the Btomis of centuries. The record is, or rather was, held by the
Italian vessel Anita. Built ln Genoa
ln 1648. she made her last voyage In
1902. That was from Teller iffe to Naples. She was thus more tbau 360
yenrs old. Alas! she has been broken up—a cruel fate for sucb a wonderful old relic.
Steamships seldom last more than
forty years. Ot those built between
1815 and 1835, tbcre is not, we believe
a single one afloat. 'I'he life of the
modern steamship is m rch shorter
than tbat of her wooden predecessor.
As for wnrsklps. they are usually
scrapped at the ago of twenty, If not
before.
Only last yei.v the saillr.j vessel
Seal left Bldifo u for Durban, a distance of 6,000 miles. Tha Seal was
built at Southampton In 1816, and in
1823 was driven .'rom her moorings at
Poole, aud was found In a tnrnip field.
One of the big engines of the Loudon and Northwestern railway has jus!
completed a distance of 2,000,000
miles. An KnglBh locomotive travels
on an average, only about 20,000 miles
a year, so this wonderful performance
is equal to rne hundred years' service
on au ordinary basis. - a matter of
fact, the engine ln question has been
worked five times aa l.ard as the average, and has accomplished the task
within a period of twenty years.
Quite how long a well built locomotive will last In running order, ls
hardly known. Six yearB ago the famous 'Lord of Isles' was scrapped
at Swindon. Sb. was one of the famous Great Western b."oad gauge engines, and was built in 1842. She waa
In perfect running order up to the
end of her long life of more than sixty

a Western man. Tea ls Just as Injurious, because It contains catJelne, the

years I shambled about with the aid

unable to dress myself without help,
"My feet were greatly swollen, my
right arm was shrunken and twisted
inward, the fingers of my right hand
were clenched and could not be extended except with great effort and
pain. Nothing seemed to give me
more than temporary relief.
"Now, during all thia time and for
about 30 yenrs previously, I drank
daily an average of 6 cups of strong
coffee—rarely missing a meal.
"My wife at last took my case Into

Hunger Hooliganism In Russia
Oue of the results of the oppressive
laws and backward conditions ln Ilus-
Bia f enerally today is the appearance
during the past, year or two, of hunger hooliganism. Assaults, depredations on property, robberies and similar crimes are ot daily occurrence,
and the police are apparently Indifferent. The situation has become so
serious that Maklakow, mlulsler ot tbe
Interior, recently called a conference
of governors and otber high govern-
l.u nt officials to consider measures
against the evil. It was decided to
give the governors special powers to
deal witli the hooligans summarily
without trial. This measure proved
to the liking of the provincial autocrats
and they applied it so vigorously that
lhe minister was compelled to advise
them to use their power wltb more discrimination. But Russian hooliganism has lt causes far deeper than
such measures go. It ls no doubt
mainly cue to the dire poverty of the
peoplo and to alcoholism, which Is
one of the largest sources of Income
to the goverrr.neut. I.usl year there
was realized from the sale of alcoholic drinks—which Is a government monopoly in Russia—more thai! 800,000,-
000 roubles ($400,000,000). Minister
Maklakov, with an amazing frankness
finds that tho severe climate of Russia makes alcohol a vital necessity
to tbe masses—nt. a very statesmau-
llke point of view, as westerners
would consider it.—Tbe Progress of
the World, In the American Review

An Idcrl  Inspires Desire
It warr some time agj that the highest and truest of Ideals c: the human
race were started.
This Is perhaps connected with tlie
fact that much of our best safeguarding comes from nature. For instance
frequently a woman, even of full natural Instincts, has no special desire
for progeny. Then a strong love
comes, and to what was only a vague
general Idea before, that she naturally would have children, Is added a
real longing, an Intense imagining of
how pleasant a little creature would
be, and of what a sole, n and joyful
possession it would be together. Desires grow when the ideal surroundings are prepared. Nature ..akes care
o. us. She Ib often careless, but
judge by her beat, and wonderful Is
she In harmony and depth.

CHEAPER  THAN   GASOLINE
British Discovery Wlll Cut tha Price
for Motor Cplrlt One-Third
The joint committee appointed by
Iba Royal Automobile Club, tho Automobile Association and the Society of
Jlotor Manufacturer:; to flird an efficient substitute for gasoline, has discovered a process which, It ls said, will
produce 40.000 gallons of motor spirit annually "without in any way depleting the country's *nlneral resources. It involves tlie./iitlllzatlon of
by-product of coal hitherto unsuitable
for motor fuel.
Experts have made a full Investigation with excellent results and a full-
sized commercial plant Is being built
and the spirit can be sold for not more
than l.'3c. a gallon, probably for less.
The secretary of the committee shows
that the al ual consumption of motor
spirit in Great Britain is about 100,-
000,000 gallons and that the present
price of gasoline is 42 cents a gallon.

awakening to the value of the banana, as food. If the present development continues, the acreage devoted to banana-growing must rapidly
Increase. Thh can be easily done,
for the areas suitable have as yet
only been touched. Improved refrigeration and quick steam service wlll
continue to widen the area ln which
the product can be marketed, and besides Its present use as a fruit, It
will be used as lt now ls 1- the tropics where it ls boiled green as a vegetable, and manufactured Into a confection known as banana figs. The
development of the banana flour In*
dust: also promses to open a market tor the product ot areas too dls
tant to profit by the demand for fresh
fruit, Just as the perfection of the
manufacture of copra, the dried meat
of the cocoanut has opened up a ne v
Industry reaching to tho farthest Is
lands of the Pacific.
The Increased production of the
banana ln its natural state, and the
diversification of its uses promise to
Introduce a new and hitherto neglected factor in our good supply. If present development continues, lt will
raise tho Caribbean region from ils
dependence on foreign markets for
food to one of the regions from which
an important part of the world's food
supply will be drawn. The wheat
fields of tho Dakota*? and Manitoba
wlll meet as one of their competitors
in feeding the world, the banana
plantations of the American Mediterranean. An Immediate consequence
of the development of ihe direct trade
with Europe, now just beginning ls to
threaten the supremacy ot the United States ln some of the Central
American markets. People buy their
goods, other things being equal, In
the countries whero their own products find their best sale. If Improved transportation facilities for the banana trade develop between the Caribbean and European ports, lt ls but
natural that European manufactured
goods wlll be carried on the return
voyage. One of the most Important
and from our past experience, lei us
remember, one of the most delicate
problems with which our men of otata
have to deal, Is the diplomacy of the
Caribbean.

\ Speaking Clock
A speaking clock has just been
shown in Berlin, says Tho Hamburger Naclirlchten. At every quarter
there comes from the inside a voice
which calls out the time clearly and
distinctly: Three o'clock; A quarter-
pr.st three; Half-past three; and so
on. Possessed ot such a clock, we
could possibly peacefully bury ourselves In our work without any fear
of missing an important engagement.
We could surrender ourselves to the
joys of sport or talk, when every
quarter of an hour we are reminded
by tho warning voice. In tin morning we need not worry over an alarm;
tho voice of the clock, which we can
make quick or slow at pleasure, will
do the waking. If we don't want to
hear the voice of conscience, we need
only switch off the machinery. The
Invention is due to th idea of a Berlin man, named Selen, whose idea was
carried Into practice after long wrestling with difficulties by a man named
Max Marktts. It may provo useful to
astronomers, and with a slight change
its working lt could be made to call
out the * \mes ot the stations In our
railway carriages. To exploit this Indention a compan;- ie being formed
in Berlin with a capital of $700,000.

SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 15, 1913.
Sir Richard McBride, Premier of British Columbia, h»s
come out with a strong endorsement of the Borden naval policy. It is an evidence of the fact that iilthe distant and fav-
tliest West, opinion is strong in favour of the Government's
naval proposal as the best means to keep intact the greatness
of the Empire and most in keeping with the dignitv of Canada.
The speech contained in no uncertain terms the views of
people who themselves believe that they have a peril on their
coasts, and as such the people of the whole Dominion should
regard Sir Richard's speech as one demanding their earnest
attention.
The speech was a strong indictment ot tlie action of tlie
Senate. Sir Richard, in commencing, stated lie did not wish to
treat the subject in a controversial manner, bnt he continued;
"First I wioh to spetik of the navy and what Canada
should do towards her share of Empire responsibility. If my
voice from British Columbia be of value to this assembly, I
would like to say witli all the emphasis I may command how
we regret and deplore the inability of Canada to do her share
towards Imperial defence, in I'ailing-to vote the -535,000,000
as was proposed a few months ago for the assistance of a programme of the British admiralty,"
The British Columbia Premier showed his desire that the
naval discussion should he placed hit/her than a mere party
basis when lie said;
"The theme of national defence should occupy a plane
higher than the political ward room, the hustings, or even the
national forum.
If we have to introduce political differences into such a question, we will drift and drift till we are so seriously involved
that we cannot extricate ourselves without sacrificing our dignity and self-respect, We in British Columbia feel that v. e
have come to the point when, in man fashion, we should do
our share in the defence, no.t only of British Columbia, of Canada, but of the Empire as well.
"We have been for years f/lon/ing iu the circumstances
that have permitted us to proclaim ourselves part and parcel
of the .British Empire. We nil have been proud of the Union
Jack, and feel, il we are to be consistent with the priveleges,
the best evidence is to come up at the time, ami the time is
Dow, to come up with at least the handsome contribution of
$35,000,000 towards Canadian, towards Empire defence.
"Wo would not for a moment consider a policy of segregation of Canada by which she could sail on in her own fair
way without undertaking her responsibility, Canada has gone
so far that it is the exacting duty for the Canadian people to
come through with a vote, evsn if twice the amount was necessary. We haw spent millions in railways, getting the money
for the most part from London town. We do not hesitate to
indulge in industrial and commercial expansion It is good and
necessary business, but is it not quite in line with (fork of this
character that we should be prepared to act even ?nore quickly iu the mutter of national and imperial defence than in the
question of local development, bearing in mind that for years
and years the source of supply has practically heen yood old
London town."
The British Columbia Premier took up the question of an
emergency in striking a .striking fashion.
"Tliere may be," he said, "some discussion as to the question oi emergency, but if the Empire has got to wait till tliere
is ane mergeiicy before we respond, things have come to a
pretty pass in Canada.
"With tho money voted for the liely; of the Empire, the
way is made clear for a larger imperial movement. We want
in Empire matters to he prepared to take on Empire responsibilities and it will not necessarily mean that with one stroke of
the pen the whole scheme of federation has to be adjusted, to
yive us a proper place.

Beggars Thai Will Not Work Because They are Aristocrats
One-fourth ul the Anglo'-Indlau population in India is supported by charity. For the Anglo-Indian thinks that

poor in Indie -N'or is lt the season

drives him to drink and then to poverty. For there Is no part ot Calcutta where there are people ot one
grade, but tire homes of the poor are
Interspersed with the rich.
lie Is a pauper purely and simply
because lie ls at aristocrat, He has
English blood ln Ms veins, ant. he

tiro English In India are tl.e successful nnd Ihe rich. They havo their
well appointed homes, their servants
and every luxury, 'the Englishman

In lhe factories, the day laborers, the
froiitiemr.on, the farmers nre not
found in India. The beggar snob
does not know "' their exist nee. He
knows ouly the coolies and the Hindus, who work with their hands, and
he will trot he or.e of tbem. ■ '. r
wishes to pattern his life after lhe
Englishman whom ho knows. Ko
wants to have a servant and be waited on, and if he cannot he will not
work. To dig With a Bhovel is a disgrace in Iris eyes, aud begging is Infinitely more respectable.
So the Anglo-Indian pauper Is Btr.it-
ported orr a scale better than that of
the faithC* 1 workmen among the
Hindus and cooi.es, : id tho burden
of the charity falls on the lic'i English. The wealthy Hindus will take
none of the responsibilities. They

weight of support.
There is another cause of this poverty also apart from this strong false
sentiment. That is tire insanitary
conditions of lire which cause tli;
death of the father of tho household
at an early age. This reduces tlie
family to pauperism at once, as the
Hues of work open to ihe Anglo-Indian woman which she will accept are

Canadian Trap Shooting Honors
At the Grand Canadian Trap Shooting Tournament recently held '.t
Hamilton, Ontario, tbere was keen
competition between the leading
shot*, of the Dominion for supremacy.
The amat"Mir Championship ot Canada was won by W. Barnes of Hamilton with a perfect score of 50 tar-
gels. Mr. Barnes used Winchester
Factory Loaded Shells. The Grand
Canadian Handicap was won by II.

48 x 50 from IS yard rise, and tho
Earl Grey cup, for the High Aggregate of the tournament. wa3 won by
R. Day of London with a score of

Shooting the Shoot
If Gussie possessed one sail he possessed a hundred. He had different
suits for Ashing, hunting, golfing, crlcit-
eting, walking, cycling, flying anrl
everything else, and so perfect was
his knowledge of the clothing question
that you could never surprise him
in a costume that did not it lhe occasion.
But gamekeepers do not pa. much
attention to such details, and the man
who was guiding Gussie over his new-
estate took small stock of garb. III!
There goes a rabbi'., be cried, suddenly. Let .rim ha\ > it. sir. Gussie

Hsnry Qesrgs sn SuT'rage
I am convinced that we make a
great mistake in depriving one sex
ot voles lr. public matters, and that
ws could ln no way Increase the attention, ths Intelligence, and Ihe devotion which may bs brought to the
solution ot social problems as by enfranchising our women. Even If ln a
ruder state of society the Intelligence
of one sex suffices for the management of common Interests, tht. vastly
more Intricate* mors delicate, and
more important questions whloh the
progress of civilization makes ot publio moment, require the Intelligence
ot women as of men, and that we never can obtain until we Interest them
ln publio affairs. And 1 have come
to believe that very much of ths Inattention, the flippancy, tha want of
conscience, which we see manifested
' In regard to public matters of ths
greatest moment, arista from tho fact
that we debar our woiuon from taking
tbelr proper part In these matters.
Nothing wlll fully Interest men unless
It also inter-cats women. There are
those who say that women are leas
Intelligent than men; but wbo will
say that they r.re less Influential?—

the municipal cottages. But all these

Railroading In Wales
Holiday!., tourists and trippers galore had upset the peace of mind of
the railway officials and to cope with
t i addltioual traffic a strange guard
was put on a special train running on
a way side line in Wales.
There was ono particular rtation rejoicing in the euphonious name of
Llanfairfechanpwllgogeryclt, etc., etc.,
and iu the due course of its peregrinations, tlto special train arrived at it,
plus the strange word.
For quite a time the guard stood
glancing at lire appalling name. First
he spelled lt out, letter by letter,
whilst the driver sounded a gay tattoo
ou his whistle. Then, by taking deep
breaths, and holding his Jaws iu his
hands, the guard feebly attempted the
desperate feat of pronomielutlou.
But lie was a man of resource, not
easily to be done. Sutldei ly he conceived a brilliant Idea, Taking up : n

to time that his attentions were positively objectionable.
One day Obadiab. Ittrned up at her

Medicinal Uses of Tobacco
Nicotine, ln Itself. Is a nurcotlo poison, when' employed in the proper
way and by a competent agent, is said
to havo a definite medicinal value.
In cases of gout, neuralgia and rheumatism poultices of frer-ra tobacco
leaves hav** long teen employed to
give relief. A concentrated solution
of tobacco ia said to be got', for dandruff, ringworm, etc. The tobacco has
been used to destroy parasites in vineyards nnd orchards, and as a £kln diseases for cattle, and the actual antiseptic value of tobacco with regard to
both vetebrates and inferior creatures,
has been amply demonstrated.
Tobacco smoke serv.s to retard cr
arrest the development of certain
pathological bacteria, which soon die
lu the tiny cage ln which they are
placed it a puff of tobacco smoke be
Injected therein. It seems to act upon them as an anasthetlc. exactly as
do the vapors of other and chloroform.
Au Italian physiologist, claims to
have proved that smoking not only Increases the flow of the saliva (which
probably explains the uneasiness of
smokers after eating until they are
able to indulge ln a pipe or cigar) but
also storllizes lt. He also declares
that tobacco never causes inflammation ot the mouth and tonnue. His
conclusions were brilliantly confirmed
bv the experiments of Prof. Wencke
of the Imperial Institute of Eerlln during the recent epidemic of chotera at
Hamburg .

Removing Things from tha Eye
Small substances* like cinders, dust,
or small clips of stont or metal, can
often be removed from the eyo by very
simple means. Sometimes the flow
of tears washes them out. At other
times catching the. upper lid by th*
lashes aud pulling lt away from ths
eyeball, and down over the lower ltd,
then letting lt go, so that ..s lt recedes
Its under surface ls swept by the edgs
ot the lower Ud, will clear lt out. It
this does not prove successful, a loop
made of hor .o hair or of a long human hair can be passed under the Ud
and swept from the outer Bide towards the nose and drawn down.
Better than this, however, ls th*
washing of the eye, or Hushing with
the eye dropper. Havj the patient
catch hold of the lower and upper lid,
drawing them away from the eye, and
then All the dropper, which ls like •

Tom, coming hastily toward her, but
Elizabeth, hurt and sensitive from tht
wounds . sht had herself wrought,
slipped through tbe door and went tt
bet* room.
The I'rcscotts were very tender wllh
her after that, for they knew tbnt their
only daughter had given ber heart to
Tom's classmate, but tbe months went
by, and Elizabeth grew like ber old
self, antl only her mother knew that
the old wound was unhealed beneath
her Indifferent exterior.
Andrew Goylord's name was rarely
mentioned, and then only ln tbe most
casual way, but Elizabeth learned that
be was still pursuing tbo course be had
mapped out and that bis rich uncle
had recently died and left bis great
wealth to an Impecunious distant relative, wbo was quite willing to keep
bis hands clean from toll.
Two years afterward Elizabeth was
visiting s school friend ln Cleveland.
It was early In September, and tbt
following day would be tha out dedicated to labor. There was to be *
great street parade, and Ruth Dalton's
father, a prominent newspaper man,
was deeply Interested In tbe project.
"If you girls want to see 18,000 work-
Ingureu on parade, come down to tbt
Magnet office and you can have a window all to yourselves. I know Ruth
Is a little democrat. How about you,
Miss Elizabeth?"
"I would like to seo the parade. Mr.
Dnlton," sbe said, coloring faintly.
It was a bright, hot Monday, and tht
streets wero soon tilled with a restless
crowd of onlookers. Tbe two girls
went down to tht Magnet office ln tht
Daltons' automobile, and when It drew
up at tho curb Mr. Dnlton hurried
I forth to meet them.
"Vou will have to stand on tbe curb
! after all," he said. "The crowd ls so
dense here that lt ls Impossible to set
well from our ground floor windows.
If you'd rather not I'll take you.dowa
to an office In the Tower building."
"Let us stand here," cried Ruth, and
as Elizabeth added her plea Mr. Dal-
ton took his place beside them and
gave them some idea of tho magnitude
ef the organization wblch was about
to pass before them. Tbe girls became
deeply Interested, and when tht flrst
notes of tbe band* sounded ln the distance Elizabeth's heart flattered curiously. She told herself that tht next
best thing to seeing Andy Gaylord
ooct more would bt to observe tht
passing of the trades to which he had
apprenticed himself. Sbe would feel
In closer touch to blm after that, for
her pride bad been melted tn tht
scorching beat of a lore she could not
cast out.
Division after division passed, and a*
Elizabeth watched them she admitted
that thousands of these men looked at
Intelligent and carried themselves wltb
as much grace and dignity as many
men In her fashionable set at home.
If Andy Oaylord had chosen to become one of them, to throw himself
Into the ranks of * great army where
brainy leaders wert needed, why—
"Here come tbe men from the Falcon sbop In Chicago," remarked Mr.
Dalton c-relcssly, and Elizabeth caught
her breath as t line of men swept
down the street
Her eager eyes scanned the. faces ot
tht men as they passed by ln a wavering line. Then, all at once, tbe whole
world seemed to turn upside down and
the faces to dance In a gray mist
Tben tbe mist cleared away, and tbe
faces wero passing, set steadily abend,
all save one—that of the man on tbt
end of the line nearest the curbstone.
! Andy Gaylord's brown eyes were
gazing Incredulously, wistfully, Into
bcrs. As be passed and seemed to go
out of ber life again sbe called.
"Andy, Andy, come back!"
"I Willi" he called back lustily, and
tbe few who had heard the words
above tbe music smiled at eacb other,
for romance ls ln every heart.
That night when be had found her
at Mr. Dalton's house and her friends
bad given him an opportunity of seeing ber alone be beld out his bands
to ber.
"Tou called me, Elizabeth," he said
quietly.
Sbo came toward him, blushing,
trembling. For a moment she looked
flown at bis hands. They were Btrong,
capable bands, clean, but not white.
There were calloused spots, and here
tnd there were traces of old cuts from
teen edged tools and now and tben t

Elizabeth looked down at them, und

were miners before them.
Tha mines were worked by the Hud-
can Bay Co. in the old days, Rnd their
aid, round, whitewashed bastron still
atands en Front Street, overlooking
tne Bay.
The Hudson Bay Co. worked the
mines with Indian*labor for the most
part, and In a very crude manner, for
■ome years, using the product for do*
mestic purposes.
An English company purchased the
mines and brought out a large body
•f English miners from Xorthumber*
land and Durham.
The Nanaimo coalfield area covers
a space of about twenty square wile*.
the main workings being along the
shor- of the Gulf of Georgia, the body
of water which divides Vancouver
Island from the mainland.
Some of these workings run far out
under tho Pacific Ooenn, and the lower
levels go to a great depth, but they
are remarkably free from coal gas,
which is generally so prevalent in coal
mines of this description. The old
town of Nanaimo itself :'b honeycomb-
ad with tunnel shafts end old disused
workings, and au occasional subsidence occurs to remind tho inhabitants of the dangers amongst which
they live.
They are a sturdy bunch of men
these North country miners or "Gcor-
dies," as they are known locally,
expert iu the handling of dynamite,
with which explosive they havo been
familiar since flrst entering the mine
aa pit-boys. The United Mine Workers
of America, a powerful miners' organisation from the other aide of the line,
are blamed for much of the present
trouble.
Most of the mines in the town of
Nanaimo itself are owned and controlled by a large San Francisco corporation. Tbe Western Fuel Company,
who purchased from tho L'nglish Company at a very low figure, and have
since taken out an immense quantity
of tho "black diamond," and from
which they have reaped some huge
profits. Soft coal on tHe Pacific coast
is as dear as hard coal ;*i Toronto, despite the fact that it ia there for the
digging.
If there is one man who can com*
mand the miners' attention and respect it is their late member for the
Legislature, Jimmy Hawthornethwaite,
who in pnst years gained a.wonderful
ascendency over Ihem, nnd whose departure from their midst they have
never since ceased to mourn.
They are no "respecters of persons"
these miners, and tbo provincial pro*
mier, Sir Richard McBride, has under*
Sone many a severe heckling   at   the
ands of these rough men, and had to
retire leaving them the field.

some 50 miles north along the coast,

considerable -Trouble with their em*
ployes' from the same causes and
from the custom of the mine-operators
in employing Chinese labor underground contrary to the .Provincial Statutes, which has been a source of
much heart-burning amongst the
miners.

Many Brave Deeds.
Of women's brave feats of endurance in tho Western farming country
there are numerous instances. One of
tbe first settlers in the bush country of
AVestern Alberta fell sick with pneumonia. His wife took care of him all
through a long winter, not another soul
within reach, and meanwhile kept the
larder supp'ied with game she shot with
her own rifle. One night a lynx came
to the little clearing in which their
shack stood, and the same unerring rifle
brought him down.
A settler in the northern part of tha
samo province went in the flrst week
of March to Edmonton, to get a new
supply of provisions, leaving his wife
alone with four children. He was delayed, nnd for over a month the lone
woman held to her post, with the little
stock of provisions growing daily less,
until she and her children were on the
verge of starvation. Two limber inspectors at length found them, reduced
to very near the last extremity, Rnd
through their efforts they were*taken
uare of, barely in time.

by one of the newspaper men in

just in what part of his luggage to

at Inst Crooks explained.
"See this little eard here,'* he said,

The Fear of Drake.
A writer in the London Chronicle
says: "No public monument is needed
to keep alive among Mexicans the memory of Sir Francis Drake's exploits in
Central nnd South America. . Travelling in Mexico in ]9lM. Mr. Kdward
Smith records that he "heard a woman calming a tempestuous child by
saying, ' Ahi viene Drake!' (Here
comes Drake!) 1. made minute inquiries, and found that it is a common threat '•■ children on the Mexican coast, like unto 'tioay will get
you!' or 'The Black Douglas shall get
you!' Fancy people still living in
terror of seeing Drake's topsails on
■ihe horizon."
As to Mr. dChurchill's reference to
Sir Francis Drake as the first "in-
Lroducer of the polato," it may be recalled that, on tho market place of
Offenburg, a little town in tho Grand
Duchy of Baden, standing in the centro
of n great potato-growing district, thero
was erected in 1SC3 a very l"**.ndsome
statue to Drake fi3 "the introducer of
the potato into Europe, A.D. 1586." But
It is just ponible that thia statue wns
