Alleged Danger to Miners  was
an After Consideration for
Taking 'Holiday.'
The following articles appeared
in the Colonist of Feb. 7th:—
For six months a large number
of coal miners  at Cumberland
have been  out of work; their
families must have suffered more
or less privation; their savings
have been expended, some of
them have perhaps lost a chance
of   re-employment;   the  public
have been very greatly inconvenienced. Incidently the Collieries
Company has lost a good deal of
business, and we assume some
profit.   In addition the persons
who handle the coal, either as
retailers, teamsters, or otherwise
have been deprived of husiness
or employment, much to their
disadvantage.   We will  accept
the reason given for this unfortunate condition of things by Mr.
Parker Williams.. It was the dis-
. charge by the Collieries Company
of a  miner named Mottishaw.
The reason for his discharge cannot have been regarded as a very
serious matter by the miners, for
they did not go on strike, but
only, as Mr. Williams puts it,
" took a holiday." The company
then told the miners that if they
would not go to work, they must
take their tools out of the mine.
This i_,' wenhihk, a fair statement of what has occurred.
It will, we think, be conceded
that the company, the miners
and the general public have paid
too great a price for the effort on
the part of the leaders of the
miners to secure what we may
admit they consider to be justice
to Mr. Mottishaw.    There is always difficulty in the calm discussion of such an  issue with
miners and those who constitute
themselves their champions, because of the influence of what
they are fond of calling "class
consciousness."    Herein is to be
found the artificial, but influential
difference between employers and
employed.   It prevents the latter
from considering questions from
the standpoint of reason  and
common sense. Similar consciousness may to some extent influence
the employing and investing class
but not as it does the  wage-
earners.   The latter have come
to regard their relations to their
employers as of necessity antagonistic; it cannot be truthfully
Baid  that employers so regard
their relations to their employees.
Every strike, walk-out or "holiday,"   inaugurated   by   wage-
earners, has this consciousness,
if not at its inception, at least in
its continuance.    Wage-earners
have been educated to believe
that "labor is being exploited for
the benefit of capital," and this
idea runs through all labor agitations  and produces incalculable
injury to those who entertain it.
We do not think we do the Cumberland   miners   any   injustice
when we say that, if they could
have rid their mind of this "class
consciousness," they would have
been able to discover a means of
settling their dispute with the
company, if not within twenty
four hours, at least without causing a tithe of the inconvenience
and suffering that has  ensued
from the course they saw fit to
adopt:   As long as men will act
on the  assumption   that some
vital    principle is   involved  in
every minor dispute that arises
between one of their number and
his employer, just as long will

their efforts to secure what they
claim to be justice result in the
payment of a price far beyond
the value of what they hope to
On the face of the facts in the
Cumberland case,  as detailed by
Mr. Williams and supplemented
by. the statements of Sir Richard
McBride, it is evident that the
alleged danger to the miners was
an after consideration.  It is now
advanced as an excuse for their
action,  whereas it was not  in
point the reason for it.   With
special reference to the facts at
Cumberland, one would suppose
that it is equally to the interest
of the mine-owers as to that of
the miners that mining should be
carried   on   under   the   safest
possible conditions. If there were
the least reason to suppose that
the company was negligent of
its duty in this respect,  it would
be open to the severest censure
and should be held responsible as
far as the law will permit.   If
there is no law to cover all cases
of possible neglect, there should
be one.   We think the laws of
this province are in this respect
everything that can be desired.
If they are not they should be
made so, if human ingenuity is
capable of making them so.   The
facts,   as we understand them
to have been stated by Mr. Williams, do not establish the claim
that the mines were being operated under dangerous conditions,
and the history of the "holiday"
shows that this reason was not
advanced  by the miners  as a
reason  for their course at the
time they left their work.   If
that had been the real reason, if
it had been made public that the
men had left their work because
the conditions under which it was
carried on were dangerous, public opinion, if not the law, would
have compelled the company to
remove all causes of apprehension
Men do not "take a holiday"
because they fear to go to work.
Their own statement of their own
case precludes the miners from
now alleging that they went out
because the mine was dangerous,
Their case as presented by Mr
Williams is that they left their
work because Mr. Mottishaw was
discharged for saying the mine
was dangerous, and the evidence
shows that in point of fact it was
The case seems to resolve itself
to this, that the miners went out
for an alleged reason, insufficient
in fact to warrant such a course,
and one which ninety-nine of
them out of every hundred would
not have considered as even
colorably sufficient, if they had
not been persuaded that some
principle was involved. We are
stating the case as favorable to
the miners as we think they
themselves would state it. We
are putting it upon a principle
not upon a mere personal basis,
because we would like them to
consider the tremendous economic
waste involved in such a course
as they have seen fit to take.
Granting their claim to have a
grievance, which they have not
established, has not the remedy
to which they have resorted been
utterly out of keeping with it?
Certain things may be taken
as true. The average employer
desires his employees to work
under favorable conditions and is

London, Feb. 11.—Grief and
pride in the simple narrative of
high courage, endurance and
sacrifice, given in Capt. Robert
F. Scott's farewell message to
the world are close competitors
for dominance in the feelings of
the British public today.
"It is a white and not a black
mourning we wear for these gallant souls who have done and
dared so greatly," was the comment of a cabinet minister.
The closing words of Captain
Scott's epic were: "Had we lived
I should have had a tale to tell of
the courage, the hardihood and
endurance of my companions
which would have stirred the
heart of every Englishman. These
rough notes and our dead bodies
must tell the tale. But surely,
a great and rich country like ours
will see that those who are dependent upon us are properly
provided for."
These words have an electric
effect. Steps are on foot already
to respond to his appeal to the
nation by assuring a comfortable
future for those dependent on the
men who. while awaiting certain
death, could still write they did
not regret their journey.
Capt. Scott's interest in the
welfare of his men was empha-
eized by practically the last business he transacted before he left
to join the expedition in New
Zealand. This was the sale of his
story. He declined to make any
private profit from the transaction and decided that the total
receipts should go to increase the
financial reward of the men who
had undertaken to share with him
the dangers of the Antarctic
regions. It was therefore arranged that all sums realized
from the story of the adventure
should be distributed among the
members of the crew as a surprise bonus on ,their return to
England. Mrs. Scott is assured
of a good pension from the Brit
ish government.
A memorial service for Capt.
Scott and his companions is to be
held in St. Paul's Cathedral on
Friday. Flags in all parts of
London are flying at half-mast
"We are weak. Writing is
difficult, but for my own sake 1
do not regret this journey, which
has shown that Englishmen can
endure hardships, help one another and _ meet death with as
great fortitude as ever in the
past. We knew we took our
position. We have no cause for
complaint, but bow to the will ol
Providence, determined to do our
best to the last.
. "But if we have been willing
to give our lives to this enterprise
which is for the honour of our
country, I appeal to our countrymen to see that those who depend
on us are properly cared for. Hail
we lived I should have bad a tale
to tell of the hardihood, endurance and courage of my companions which would have stirred the
heart of every Englishman.
"These rough notes aro our
death bell's toll, but surely--sure
ly a great rich country like ours
will see that those who are dependent on us are properly provided for.

"March 25th, 1912.
The resolution with respect to
tlie use by international shipping
of the Panama Canal, reads as
"Whereas, according to the
provisions of the Hay-Pauncefotc
Treaty of 1901, as expressed in
rule 1, clause 2, it was agreed by
the United States of America that
the Panama Canal should be open
to the ships of all nations upon
terms of perfect equality;
"And. whereas, by Act of Congress passed in August. 1912,
vessels owned in the United
States and engaged in the coastwise trade are to be exempt from
all Canal dues;
"And, whereas, such discrimination would obviously operate to
the disadvantage of British ves
sels engaged in the carrying trade
of the Pacific coast;
"And, whereas, in July, 1912,
the British Government entered
a protest against the preferences
granted by said Act of Congress
to American vessels, and again
in November renewed the protest
and requested, failing other
means of settlement, that the
question should be referred for
arbitration to the Hague Tribunal
in accordance with the provisions
of a treaty with ' the U. S. in
1908: "Therefore, be it resolved
thai the Legislature views with
great satisfaction the attitude
assumed by His Majesty's Secretary for Foreign Affairs in upholding the rights of British and
Canadian shipping in the use of
ie Panama Canal, and expresses
the sincere hope that the negotiations which have been undertaken may . speedily result in a
just and amicable settlsment
.eirtg beached.
"The resolution which I propose
presently to submit to the House
is, as honourable gentlemen can
easily see," said Sir Richard McBride, "of a somewhat unusual
character. It pertains to a question that is one of international
importance, and in connection
with which, under the constitution the Legislature of British
Columbia has little or no connection. But when we consider the
great importance to British Columbia of the opening of the Panama Canal, I feel quite satisfied
that a digression of this sort is
easily justified.

Ladysmith, Feb. 14th.—Every
day adds additional men to the
number working at No. 1 of the
Extension Mines, which resumed
operations on the first of the
month. It was found in very
good working condition and in a
few days the output will be normal. The agitators are spreading
the same report here as they did
in Cumberland, namely that the
company is hauling the loaded
cars, produced during the day,
back to the mines during the
night; at the same time watching
the coal running down the chute
at the wharf into the scows and
steamers. The agitators circulate
this false report to keep their
miserable weekly allowance continued. We have them on the
run as the miners have in Cumberland.   The end is in sight.

We have often heard it discussed how will the council affect
the credit of the city? Credit,
like kissing, goes by favour.
Credit depends upon confidence,
and confidence depends upon
many things, of which character
as Mr. Morgan has recently told
us, is the first and most important element. Institutions and
men have credit because they
have public confidence. It is true
that credit gives to those who
possess it an advantage over
those who do not.
Too Much for Carrigan.
The employees of the Canadian
Collieries (Dunsmuir) Ltd., decided to give an informal dance
and invite their friends. To give
the dance publicity, the employees had some bills printed. Of
course they had them printed at
a union office and the union label
as a matter of course was on the
bottom of the bill, This put the
local agitators up a tree. They
looked, stretched their eyebrows,
rubbed their eyes ami looked
again; when the label proved too
much for Carrigan—lie hud to
cut it out.
We regret to announce the
death of Wilfrid Willard, youngest son of W. W. Willard, which
occurred at tlie Hospital on Sunday morning, after undergoing
an operation for appendicitis.
Deceased was eleven years of
age. The funeral took place on
Thursday from the Methodist
Church. The public school was
closed and the children attended
in a body, and there was also a
large number of townspeople
present to show their sympathy
for the bereaved family. Floral
tributes wore sent by the Sunday
School and Bible Class of Grace
Methodist Church.

[could Rivington know wo were coming
tonight, returned Nell.
Easton feii his heart fall ns the
truth of his companions words sank
Into his brain.
Tell me, Mr. Nell, he said at Inst,
yon said that since you—since you
left prison you liave watched over—
over Violet and her sister. Were
Ihey friendly with this man Rivington!
Did they see much of him?
When I said I watciied over her. I
mpant I did mv best, Major Easton.
I found out that the two girls were
well-off, and successful, that they
were—so far as one could see—happy
and comfortable. In my position I
could do no more than that. Yet I
knew their friends, and this man was
one of them.
Gaston's mind went back tn the flrst
time he had seen the two sisters, and
he remembered the wav Rivington hnd
fallowed them to their taxi-cab and
the furious manner In which he had
parted from them.
Yet they had quarrelled with him
once, I um certain, he said at last.
Perhaps, who can tel ? If Eda
were nllve she might help ns.
The name of Eda made Easton
start. Eda! Her suicide, the letter, Violet's strange fainting fit. What
light had the events of Ihe night
thrown on all these? None, perhaps.
Much, possibly. It was all too dark,
and he felt himself dazed. But on
one thing he determined, as he racked his brain. Nell was her father,
nnd he should know all that he, Easton, knew, and hep him If he could.
And that he could, he felt confident.
There was mystery on mystery In all
these hapnenlngs and the aid of a
man like Neil was not to be despised.
Try as he would, Easton could not
help feeling that some net of strange
happenings and difficulties had surrounded Violet, but that she 'herself
was guiltless of their coming, and that
wounded and unconscious as she was.
she still mutely called on him to fr3e
her from them, and win her back.
She must have sen I 'oved her, h"
thought, and she would never hnve let
me come to see her sn often, thinking
her a girl and free, if thnt man had
heen her husband.
Mr. Nell, he said at last, as they
drew near London, which was already

the ciiurcii'urd and Cannon street ti
u point near the new bridge, will drain
our foundations. The cathedral is
built un water-bearing soil ubove this
clay, aud tue coustaui danger is thu;
this soil may become dry and decrease
in bulk, tnus leading to sett.ements
of the foundations and cracking of the
walls. Indeed, Mervyn Macartney,
architect to the dean and chapter,
takes so serious a view of any sua.
drainage that he is unable to say
wnere tne damage might end. When
we remember that Holy Trinity in
Kingsway which stands beside a similar subway had to be rebuilt, we
cannot but do all in our power to
save St. Paul's from the possibility
of ruin.
A protest has been addressed to
the chairman of the L.C.C. hy the
dean and ampler, and as custodians
of a great na'ienul monument we trust
that due weight will be given to our
point of view. About live years ago
the council diverted a big sewer
scheme which It was thought threatened the Cathedral just as the proposed subway would do, and so we are
hopeful in this matter. The cost of
fighting the L C. C.'s bill would be
so heavy for us and It is so difficult
to find funds even for the present necessary repairs that we feel sure the
public will be with us ln urging th.*
authorities to drop that part of the
scheme, which in the opinion of all
experts, would serious.y threaten
Wren's great masterpiece.

Opens up New District
The commencement of active work
upon the flrst section of ihe Pacific
antl Great Eastern Railroad from Vu.i-
couver to Lilloet has turned the
thoughts of mauy people to the new
country to be traversed by this lino
which Is destined to connect the Grand
Trunk Pacific with the city of Vancouver and it is of Interest to know
that this section of the new line following as It does the course of tho
Fraser River will ct,en up to settlement n territory which Is unequalled
upon the Continent both for Its fertility and Its possibilities. Pioneers
who have gone Into the country between Newport and Lilloet declare
that there Ib nothing that can be
grown In the temperate zone which
cannot be produced without profit in
the territory to be opened up by the

elevation under 1700 feet, the mitt*

always cool. In winter the snowfall
Is from 36 to 60 Inches with an occasional cold dip In January or February
down to ten below Jero, but this only
lusts a day or so, and then mild weather returns.

was invented by a poor monk of Bohemia, who put up the first lightning
rod on the palace ot the curator of
Preditz, Moravia. June ID, 1754. The
apparatus was composed of a pole surmounted by an Iron rod supporting 12
curved branches and terminating in
as many metallic boxes filled with iron
ore. The entire system of wires was
united to the earth by a large chain.
The enemies of the Inventor, jealous
of his success, excited the peasants
of the locality against him and under
the pretext that his lightning rod was
the cause ot the excessive dry weather had the rod taken down and tho

To yield the best meat, an animal
should be neither too old nor too
young. The meat from an old animal Is usually tcugb; that from on*
too young lacks flavor and substance,
owing to the large amount of water
present. Au old animal, ln poor
flesh, can be made to produce a fairly
good carcass if fattened rapidly.

What the Editor has to say.
The mflrvels of the construction of the Panama Canal and
in" effect of the new waterway on tlie world's geography weir
described by Dr, Vaughan Cornish in a lecture entitled "The
I'iii.iih.i Canal and the British Empire,' at the Royal Geographical-Society, He first showed the relation of the canal to
ihe Geography bonks. The Americans started operations in
Ifl04, snid the lecturer, and probably by the coining autumn
the first great liners would go sailing across South America—
literally across it.
"Its importance to us," says the lecturer, "isprimarily due
to the fact that our empire is Set iu the sea. We consist of a
number of countries separated by the unsociable ocean. But
the friendly Panama Canal will reduce some of the distances
which separate our constituent countries, and in doing so will
bring us all nearer to each other. Then we are a great shipping community, carrying not only from our own ports, but
from 'oreign port to foreign port as international curriers, so
that the general reduction in sea distances which will result
from the canal is of great commercial importance " Thereat
i-sl fact was that it brought British Columbia 6000 miles nearer to the ho.ne country. This would facilitate the flow of
emigrants and the export of finished products both to British
i 'olumbia and to the provinces behind it. British Columbia
wis one of the most desirable countries in the whole of our
empire, with a splendid climate, fertile land, great mineral
wealth, extensive forests stocked with game, and rivers crowd
ed with fish. It was undoubtedly destined to be the home of
a great part of the British race, and its character and circumstances were such as would foster all that was best in our
character and our civilization. An astounding development
u'-s thus likely to follow the opening of the canal.

"The Corner Store," Cumberland, B. C.
The Week in an article on the Cumberland strike says in
part :—
" The wen think they are too harshly dealt with ; that
one of tlieir number has been discriminated against and practically frozen out ot employment because he too faithfully
discharged his duty as a gas examiner. The employers claim
that thei/ are fii/litinr; » battle to a finish with an American
organization which seeks to dominate the coal mining industry
of British Columbia. These two points of difference would
seem to lie as far asunder as tbe Poles and would appear to
suggest that there is a niisunderstonding which careful investigation might remove.
" Discrimination against a workman is a difficult thing to
prove, although it is often suspected. The evidence is invaii-
ably circumstantial and not always conclusive. However
strongly the men may feel that they are right in their suspicion
it is extremely doubtful if they cm prove it, and if they fail to
do so they would have to abandon tlieir contention as untenable.'
To this we must repeat what has already been threshed
out iii Cumberland time and again, For the information of the
Week we know of no one who has heen harshly dealt with, or
discriminated against, or frozen out of employment, The case
the Week reters to is undoubtedly that of Mottishaw, who left
this district some time ago, and we may say that Mottishaw
never noted on aoas committee for the Cumberland mines to
one knowledge. He may have done so at Etension mines. But
when Mottishaw first came to Cumberland and asked for work
li, was offered a job driving a mule in No. 4 mine, which he
refused -Shortly after he obtained employment with a contractor in the same mine without first obtaining permission
from the overman and was being paid a higher rate of wages
than that paid in the district. To this the manager of that
mine had a decided objection and ordered the contractor to
dispense with his services. The following day Mottishaw made
application to the malinger of No. 4 Mine for the position that
lie was offered in the first case, when the manager referred
bim to the overman, who employed all drivers. 'Mottishaw
never applied to the overman, evidently not wanting the iob.
Afterwards he came out with the statement that he was discriminated against, and the local U.M.W. of A. took a holiday.

they are so much in the minority |

average employee desires to
work under favorable conditions

conspicuously failed to show thai

the cause of headaches, sleeplessness

I Ingenious Scheme of Swindling   Contrived by Manager Now In
Consternation Is caused In Finnish
financial world by what would seem to
be the greatest swindle ever perpetrated in the commercial history ot
Finland. The affair has for the mv
ment eclipsed the all-absorbing anxiety and eagerness with which the developments lu the political feud with
the Russian government are followed.
M. Nils Idman, manager of th-*
Tammerfors branch of the local For
enings Banken, was suddenly detained a few days ago by the police upon
orders received from the head office,
and after arrest the safe of tho
branch under ldmans charge wa.
opened, but It was found to be empty,
although it should have contained, according to the book., securities for to
the amount of $210,000.
Idman had devised an Ingenious
scheme. When ,customers were
granted loans against good securities
the latter were of course, deposited
In the safe: but Idman abstracted
them soon afterward and obtained
loans on thom on his own account
from banks. Ills bank will have to
make good all the losses, the total
amount of which is stated to be something between $1,000,000 and $2,500.

Wholesale Forgery
Books and checks have been forged
and months may elapse until everything is cleared, if this can ever be
done.     The number   of   firms   and
wealthy  private   persons   who  hav* I

ed to be about 200.
An elderly widow was left by her
hUBband $200,000. Idman took over1
the charge of the money three years .
ago, and has actually never given any
receipts for It, so strong was the belief in him that those documents were
never asked for. There Is not a penny left tor the poor woman, who
Is 80 years of age, and friends have
secured her a place In a home, which
is nothing but a better-class workhouse.
A director named   Snellman,   who
had charge of the Nordiska Bank, the
second in importance in Tammerfors,
committed suicide two days after Id-
man's arrest.     Though that bank la
stated to be untouched by thc fall of
Idman,  M.   Enellman's personal loss
is reported to be $50,000.      He had

Clock Without a Spring
A unique timepiece has recently
been invented by Eugene Walser, a
watchmaker ln Los Angeles. Four
years of work has perfected a clock
which keeps accurate time, but ts
without a spring tn Its makeup. The
motive power ts gained by the clock
rolling down an incline, regulated by
a wonderful arrangement of weights
on the inside of the clock. There is
no winding to be done, but every 30
days the clock is lifted to the top of
the incline and begins to slide downward. The dial does not revolve
with the ease, but remains as an ordinary dial with tho figure 12 at the
top. The incline is of polished wood,
sixteen inches long, with an 8 1-3
per cent grade. There is no relation
between the wood and the clock; it
ts simply a matter of properly adjured weights which move the hands and
control the downward motion of the

Divided into 250,000 shares of $1.00 each par value and non-assessable of which a first issue of
50,000 shares are now offered to the public at par.
SHARES ln the above Company are now offered at $1.00 and will give purchasers a safe and sound investment
with a good return by way of dividends and future enhanced value of stock.
THE COMPANY is organized by business men of British Columbia to carry on a Home Pudding, Loan, Insurance and General Real Estate Business, and ils head office has been located at Victoria, B. C.
FEATURES that must appeal to the investing public is the fact that there is no promotion stock, every
director and official of the Company paying $1.00 for their shares the same as the general public is asked
to do now.    Furthermore, the Company has its own
FISCAL AGENCY, thereby saving exorbitant commissions and leakages on the selling of its shares.
THE WELFARE OF SHAREHOLDERS will be the first thought of the Company, and with this end in view
it will be carried along on safe and economical lines,
AN INVESTIGATION into the schemes of the Company will interest you and show you where large profits
will accrue.   Send for a prospectus today and learn our plans of operation to their full extent.
PAYMENTS on shares can be made in either way as follows : All cash, or one-third cash, balance 6, 12, 18 and
24 months; or one quarter cash, balance 0, 12 and 18 months; or 10 per cent cash and 5 per cent a month.
Thus on this latter plan
$10.00 cash and  $5.00 a month buys 100 shares    $50.00 cash and $25.00 a month buys 500 shares
$25.00 cash and $12.50 a month buys 250 shares   $100.00 cash and $50.00 a month buys 1000 shares
REMEMBER, now is the time to invest, for only the first issue of 50,000 will be sold at $1.00, after which they
will go to a premium.   Get in on the ground floor and let future enhanced values give you extra profit.
