Good Office* of that Body Entirely Ignored and Treated
With Contempt
At the meeting held yesterday
afternoon in the Cumberland
Hall, at the request of the Board
of Trade, the object of which
was to select a committee of the
miners present to confer with Mr.
Lockhart, superintendent of the
Collieries Co. in regard to a settlement of the differences existing
between the men and the company, it was very easly seen that
theU.M.W. of A. strongly objected to any one outside of their
union having anything to do with
this question.
It seemed to be understood as
regards the procedure to be
adopted as, before anyone else
thought of it, one man got up
and moved that J. Naylor be
appointed chairman. It was immediately seconded, put to the
meeting and carried.
The members of the Board of
Trade objected to this action,
especially Mr. T. E. Bate who
spoke strongly in favor of the
Mayor taking the chair; Mr. F.
Dalby and Mr. Lawrence also
Now, a word to the public in
explanation. The hall was engaged by the Board of Trade,
paid for by them, and we leave
it to the fair-minded public to
decide whether the Board of
Trade ought to have had control
of the meeting.
However, it was at last decided that Mr. J. Naylor remain
in the chair, the Board of Trade
to go on with their explanation
as to the object of the meeting.
Mayor McLeod said they could
rest assured that all he said was
absolutely true, and he had not
thought of interfering in this
business at all, but was asked by
several members of the union to
do something in this trouble, and
had called a meeting of the Board
of Trade to consult with them.
Had met Mr. Irving on the
streets, who stated that it was a
good idea, and appeared before
the board that night. Mr. Irving gave a good address, pointing
out that if a committee of the
employees of the Colliery' Co.
were to go to the management,
they would be received and an
agreement arrived at.
This was accordingly done and
Mr. Clinton wired to Mr. W. L.
Coulson. The answer came on
Thursday afternoon, and was to
the effect that Mr. Lockhart
would meet a deputation of the
employees on Friday afternoon.
Arrangements were made with
Mr. Irwin on Thursday night for
a meeting at 9-30 next morning,
but he left on the bus at nine.
The Hoard of Trade did not wish
to dictate to them in any shape
or form. Their interests were
Mr. Lawrence corroborated the
Mayor in his remarks, and explained that it was their wish to
bring about a peaceable settlement.
A resolution was here made
that the same committee be appointed that went to the office on
Wednesday afternoon.
That motion not being seconded another motion was made that
the meeting adjourn until Sunday
morning when under the auspices
of the U.M.W. of A., they would
appoint a committee. After con
siderable discussion Mayor Mc
Leod said he did not wish to interfere further in the matter and
would leave it entirely in the
hands of the meeting. The Board
of Trade then left the platform
and the hall.

Board of Trade should endeavour
to have these visitors come and

pose of enquiring into the case of
two men, Oscar Mattishaw and
James Smith, who, they alleged,
had been discriminated against.
On a vote by ballot being taken
it was found that 244 were against
discrimination and 22 for.
On the evening of the same day
a meeting of the union men only
was held in the City Hall, at
which it was decided that they
do not return to work until the
men be reinstated in their work.
A deputation of the union was
sent down to the management to
explain their grievance but did
not succeed in coming in touch
with any officers of the company.
On Tuesday the Colliery Co.,
posted notices, notifying the men
that all miners' tools must be
taken out of the mines and turned
into the company, otherwise they
would be charged up to them.
The miners held a public meeting in the afternoon at which it
was decided that all comply with
the notice.
Ladysmith Sept. 19—The decision of the Extension miners to
stop work was made at a mass
meeting held in Ladysmith yesterday by a vote of 213 to 105.
The meeting was held to discuss
the situation arising out of the
grievances at Cumberland. The
general impression of the meeting was one of sympathy with
the Cumberland men in their
demand that the men dismissed
be reinstated by the Canadian
Collieries Ltd. A resolution was
passed, and will be forwarded to
Premier McBride, Minister of
Mines, charging the compary
with infraction of the Coal Mines
Regulation Act in discriminating
against men who had acted upon
gas committees, and calling upon
the minister to make an investigation into the question at once.
A second resolution was adopted,
calling upon all men employed in
the Extension collieries to stop
work until the men alleged to
have been discriminated against
at Cumberland were reinstated,
the resolution to come into effect
at once.
As a result of the action taken
at both camps, the mines at Cumberland and Extension are idle
today, and will probably remain
so for some little time.
Mr. Beadnell Invite* H.R.H. to
Attend Agricultural Show
at Courtenay
H. H. Beadnell, of the firm of
Beadnell and Callin, left for Victoria on Wednesday, Sept. 11, for
the purpose of trying to arrange
for a visit to Courtenay of the
Duke of Connaught and party.
Mr. Beadnall interviewed Premier McBride and several members of the government, and was
advised to wire Col. Lowther, the
military secretary of the vice-
Regal party, who was then at
Laggan, Alta., relative to the
party extending their visit to
Courtenay and district.
A wire was accordingly sent on
Thursday, 12th. inst. and the
following telegram was received:
"Laggan, Alberta.
The Governor-General thanks
the people of Comox and district
very much for their invitation
but regrets extremely that the
time available does not admit of
a visit".

Ottawa, Sept. 19.—With a view
of carefully investigating the
whole question of wages in Canada, and to tabulate the information yearly, an enquiry has
been instituted by the department of labor. The work will be
done by M. R. H. Coats, editor of
the Labor Gazette. It is felt
that it will be of great utility in
settling labor disputes. An investigation into retail prices along
the line of the enquiry into wholesale figures made some time ago,
is also contemplated.

Enjoyable Outing.
Last Saturday the following
young ladies from the entrance
class and high school, spent a
very enjoyable day at Comox
lake;—Misses Jennie Whyte,
Hannah Harrison. Annie Reese,
Marion Gray, Hilda Watson, Annie Watson, Dot Burns, Nettie
Robertson, Hazel Whyte. The
party journeyed out at an early
hour, arriving in time for lunch,
which was served al fresco. The
weather was ideal for a picnic,
and games and other amusements
furnished recusation for the remainder of the day. The young
ladies, one and all, declare they
had never spent a more enjoyable outing.
An interesting wedding took
place at the Presbyterian Church,
Courtenay, on Tuesday, Sept.
10th., when Miss May Creech,
eldest daughter of Mr. and Mrs.
Edward Creech of Courtenay,
was united in marriage to Mr. R.
M. Allan, of the firm of Cameron
Allan, Courtenay.
Tlie cermony was performed
by the Rev. Mr. Menzies. The
bride was given away by her
father Mr. Edward Creech. Miss
Maud Creech, sister of the bride,
was bridesmaid. Mr. F.D. Cameron supported the groom.
The bride looked charming in
a travelling suit of Fawn with
hat to match, and the happy pair
were the recipients of many
beautiful and costly presents.
Mr. and Mrs. Allan motored to
Union Bay and left on the Charmer for Victoria, Seattle, and
sound cities. Both the bride and
the groom were extremely popular in the District and we extend them the best of wishes.
Loyal and Patriotic Welcome to
Their Royal Highnesses
Magnificent Display
Spanned by great arches, fluttering with flags festooned with
streamers of flowers and fir, the
dull stone of the buildings almost in a riot of color, overnight
Vancouver's streets assumed a
changed look and instead of the
prosaic appearance the city now
resembles the street of ancient
Rome decked for a triumph for
the legions of some conquering
Caesar returned from Gaul. And
never did Roman eagles march
through streets better decorated
or bespeaking more of loyalty
and patriotism than greeted
Their Royal Highnesses the Duke
and Duchess of Connaught upon
their arrival in Vancouver this
Vancouver's streefs seem to
have assumed this appearance almost by the magic will of some Aladdin. True, the arches have
been building for some days and
many of the flags were strong
days ago, but the preparations
for the arrival of the royal couple
were far from completed last
night, and the finishing touches
were put on in the "wee sma
hours" of the morning by busy
gangs of workmen, who toiled
through the night hours in hurried endeavor to leave nothing
undone. Only a few of the ton
arches erected in honor of the
Duke remained uncompleted this
morning, and they were finished
by double gangs of carpenters,
painters and decorators, and were
perfect in every detail before the
train bearing Their Royal Highnesses reached the city.
As the Duke and his escool
alighted from the train and entered the automobiles to go to the
new court house to be given a
formal welcome by Mayor Find-
lay, the first decorations he saw
were those of the Canadian Pacific
Railway station. Draped with
flags and bunting and bearing the
arms of England and Canada,
over the arch of the entrance are
the words: "Welcome to the Pacific Coast," one above this is a
huge electric sign which emblazen
abroad at night the following
message: "God Bless our King,
Upon Whose Umpire the Sun
Never Sets."
Launching of Empress of Russia
Indicates Great Increase
of Trade
Some idea of the size of the
two new C.P.R. liners for the
Oriental service may be ascertain
ed by the announcement receiv
ed here that they will be two and
a half times as large as the Empress of India or the Empress of
Japan. The Empress of Russia,
just launched, of which the Empress of Asia, now building, will
be a duplicate steamer, is 590 feet
long, 68 feet in beam, 46 feet
deep and of 15,000 gross tons.
The launching of the Empress
of Russia at Fairfield is regarded
by British shipping journals
one of the most prominent events
of the year, marking, as it does,
the tremendous growth of trade
between Canada and the Far
East in the need for vessels of
such large size. The first of the
new liners. will reach this coast
next April.
The new steamer will be driven
by four propellers, for which
power is furnished by four sets
of Parsons turbines. Steam is
furnished by ten boilers, working under Howden's system of
force draught at pressure of 190
pounds per square inch. The
vessels are equipped with cruiser
sterns and rudders are entirely
underhung, making them a distinct departure from other pas.
senger vessels.
The steamers have double bottoms and seven decks. The promenade deck will be 330 feet long.
The new Empresses are equipped
with three funnels, two pole
masts, straight stem and cruiser
stern, the latter giving them
more stability in running down
the swells of the trade winds
which prevail more on the Pacific
than on the North Atlantic. Four
of the watertight compartments
can be flooded and yet the vessel
will remain bouyant.
A block above, at Hastings and
Granville streets, is the Civic
arch, a massive work of imitation
stone, fashioned after the arches
of Rome, flying from its four
corners the Canadian ensign and
the Union Jack with the royal

street they next passed under the
arch of the Canadian Northern
Railway at the intersection of
Seymour street. This is a huge
double arch of purest white,
spanning both street and sidewalk, bearing the words: "Vivat

is decorated by bands of green
fir with red and white roses and
its background of white is broken
by Hags and pennants.

In company with two others,
Hiquebran left Sunday on a hunting expedition six miles to the
south of Ladysmith. Losing his
bearings early in the day he followed a stream which brought
him to the headwaters of the
Chemainus river, he being found
wandering in the vicinity of Copper Canyon yesterday morning
by Game Warden Jack Graham
and Martin of this city. Hiquebran was faint from hunger and
fatigue and was about to give up
when found by the two Nanaimo men.

One of them, tbe elder, apparently,
was a tall, fair girl with an exquisite
figure and very telling dark eyes, to

a queer droop to llie corner of her

involuntarily to sigh. The other was

her keenly. Shorter, with a fuller

the unforgettable cur of Juggernaut,

wheels, eight feel, in diametetr and
a foot thick, mounted on axles twenty
iwo feet long nnd fourteen inches in

carved from costly wood, black with
age. ornamented with gold and sot
with  precious  stones.
In fact, a new car is built every
year, in which the god journeys the
two miles for a fortnight's rest at
his garden, or country house. Vast
number of pilgrims grasp the ropes
and the cur moves slowly forward
to the cheers of thousands of spectators. But the heavy wheels cut
deep into Llie sand and it slows down
and stops. Interest lags, the priest
now accepting a mere touching of the
ropes as suflicient service, and hired
coolies complete tho journey, two
weeks being sometimes necessary to
traverse the two miles, and an even
greater time to return. The British Government now prevents the
sacrifice of life under the car, which
probably accounts for the decline of
the festival.

A Lengthy Stock in Trade
The late Will McConnoll, an advance agent and a Broadway character of much renown, was standing In
the baggage room of a railroad station in company with Mol Stoltz, another advance agent. They were
waiting to have their trunks chocked.
Presently a baggage handler passed,
pushing a sample trunk, which according to Stoltz, was about nine feel
long and nbout two feet wide.
Por thu love of Mike I ejaculated
Stoltz. what do you suppose the owner of tbat  trunk sells?

A Joke by Mansfield
Julia Marlowe, the charming Shakespearean actress, tells a story at the
expense of the less brilliant members
of her profession. The late Richard
Mansfield's company had been rehearsing more or less faithfully for
an hour when the hypercritical star
himself arrived unexpectedly. For
several seconds Mr. Mansfield watched the rehearsal—bis expressive face
running ihe gamut of emotions. "Wait
a minute—wait a minute," Impatiently
called out the pompous stage manager. Where are those two jack-
assps that are supposed to come down
lhat hill (n this girl's cue? Thereupon Mr. Mansfield abruptly interrupted him. Cio on—go on with the
scene, he ordered authoritatively.
Then he turned to the stage manager
aud patted his shoulder. I don't
think it will be necessary to have
those two jackasses brought in at
all. It looks to me as if there were
enough on the stage already.
Japs Want Longer Legs
The attempts- now being made to
lengthen the legs of Japanese schoolchildren, so that eventually the hia
ture of ihe race may equal that of the
European and American, were described to the City Club recently hy
Harvey N. Shepard, of Boston.
Mr. Shepard had just completed a
globe-encircling trip, which was devoted to study of local self-government.
Children in Japiyi uow sit uptn
chairs instead of squatting, he declared. This is being done as an
attempt to make their legs grow longer.
Japanese surgeons say that the
trunk of a Japanese is as large as
thut of a European, but that the
former's legs are much shorter, making the race of Nippon appear decidedly smaller. If ihe legs of several
generations can be stretched'by using
chairs, instead of the Old custom of
squatting, the Jap will be as tall as
men ot ether nations

The Loading Platform
The imwnt gtaorMlon or Western tiivmerc «ui never know Ihe
difficulties ;.ihI v xalt, ns experienced by their predecessors in the
earlier years w'.ut' no um* could rim n carload ot Bralti shipped lit
hulk except ry icuillng It through an elevator. The system forced
thc majority of farmers to toll thoir nni:n to the elevator owners
at arbitrary rrlci.s, and oft times to submit to heavy dockage nnd
other aniiiiy.iiice.s. musing continual dissatisfaction. Now however
Ihe distribution o' .ars us fixed by the Grain Act, and the use of tho
loading platform, provide facilities which enable the fanner to secure
satisfactory irealv.int In Ihe disposal of his grain, and the highest
marlcel prices al time of snle. Every fanner therefore, should more
and more e'uleavor to use the loading pl( tt'irm In shipping his grain
lo the terminal elevators. It Is the Bafc-gtiard ot the farmers' free
doin in disposing of his grain to tho besl advantage for himself. If
farmers refrain no.u using the loading platform freely, il might result in Its being done away with, becaure railway companies and
elevator owiiers ara strongly opposed to 1.. It Is easy to under-
stand why olevalor people desire the lending platform abolished.
Tbe railway eo'plo on their part say i. delays ibe loading of cars
and helps ro cause ear shortage. This we know to be nonsense,
because fronuently aflei cars are loaded whether with grain, cnal
lumber or other merchandise, tliey are sidetracked for days and even
weeks Instead of being promptly moved forward to destination. It
is engine sbo-taae ..'id shortage of competent trail, men that mostly
causes grain I lockadea on railways and not lack of cars. Lei every
farmer therefore, d, all he can to use t e loading platform and become an Indtpeiident shipper. ln subsequent advertisements we
will state in deti.il the savings and otlvr advantages of direct loading Into rats eon,pared with loading through elevators,

The Power of Sarcasm
Tho residents of one of the small

made a protest by erecting a sarcastically worded signboard, reading,

( bmmercially, Cumberland to day is in splendid condition,
People are coming to Ibis city and district almost dnily with
the intention of making their homes here. In eitlu v ensi it is
our duty to make this city the centre, uot onlv from a business
point: of view, but also to make it popular and attractive. To
do this it, will be necessary to have Cumberland better known
to the eutside world and the surrounding district ns n city
worthy of the name. We have made the first step iu that
direction by paving our sidewalks, and it is to be hoped the
eity council will not leave this good work unfinished by not
having crossings paved, at least the intersecting ones. It will
add 50 per cent, to tlie appearance, and be much cheaper in
the end than wood.
We should endeavor to prove to those who have money
to invest that there are good opportunities right here to day
Among tlie many,perhaps the most urgent, is a large tourist
hotel of the best, with all modern appliances and a large ball
suitable for all requirements. There are also many other
openings too numerous to mention. We prophec./ that this
city and district will make rapid strides in the nenr future.! 'J«.*4/ t % j a

We di.'plore the state of affairs which exist at the presrnt
time in this city. The miners have ceased work, gone for a
vacation,or taken a holiday, in other words, it is in effect wlrt
would be tin? case were a strike in existence. We know a little
about unions, in fact we belong to the Typographical Union,
and we know that it is unconstitutional to cease work without
giving thirty days notice. The same should apply to any labor
organization. There are always two ways to look at n question
—a right and a wrong way.     The employers should have due
notice of any such intention on the part of the  n, if it were
only a matter of courtesy, and the men should consider well
before taking such a step.
The business people of this city are certainly not in favor
i fastiike, because strikes paralyses industry, impedes prosperity, and brings want and suffering in its wake.

According to II. L, Bolley, botanist the eosentlal steps to get better
seed are—Raise your own seed: bar-
vest tbe beed when mature; thresh It
as -noon as dry; store the seed dry:
grade, out of it all weed seeds; and
always use a pure variety of seed.
Where these steps are followed the
seed will each year become more and

which son e time ago they consecrated to the Russian dead who fell
in the battles about Mukden. in
their precipitate retreat the armies of
tbe Czar left thousands upon thousands of iheir fallen comrades unbur-
led. After the signing of the treaty
of peace Ihe soldiers of the Mikado
collected every last hone and every1
bit of ragged uniform and every broken weapon which the Russians had
left upon the field, and buried them
with soldierly honors. In the centre
uf thisvast plot tbey enclosed hy a
white marble fencing a reserved space
for those who had evidently heen officers. Over the graves of the common soldiers iron crosses in the
Creek form were erected, and over
the graves of the commanding officers
crosses of white marble. Then as
a pivot to the converging lines they
reared a terrace and on the terrace
built a marble temple, all at a cost of
50,000 yen. When the work was
ready for dedicatory riles they invited Russian eccleslast!fcs from IVkin,
Harbin and Vladlvostock, together
with such military commanders as
wero near, to assemble for religious
service iu this chapel, where, amid
the assembled men of both races, the
iand was solemnly consecrated as a
resting place for the Russian dead.

act. For within five yearns of the
battle of Mukden they laid out the
field os a pemetery for their conquered enemies, buried them decently, had ■■
religious riles celebrated by priests of
their own faith, and paid personal
tribute to tho courage and loyalty of
the men they had vanquished. All

Size of Future Ships
Sir William White, a leading naval
architect, declared recently that the
facts that tend to limit the increase
ln the size of ships are chiefly commercial. Large ships cost more to
build than small ones, and are moro
expensive to operate. Moreover
they are not so sure of obtaining
their complements ot passengers or
cargo without delay. In addition,
comparatively few harbors possess
channels of sufficient depth or docks
large enough, to accommodate vessels even of the length and weight of
the Mauretanla. Sir William believes tha*. although large ships will
continue to ply between a fow favored ports ior special services, and
even larger ones may be built, the
great bulk of ocean traffic will continue to be carried by vessels o{ mod*
trats size.

Unfortunately bis «y* was hard to

were too blu*. and th* steels were col*
orless. Not finding one to suit him, he
went to a man named Herman, who
bad an eye factory In his back yard,
and engaged him to niak* ao ey* that
would perfectly correspond with the
on* remaining In It* socket Herman
bad a daughter, Gretcben. who painted
that part of tbe glass wblch gave tbe
•yea the color, and Walter sat befor*
her while she copied hia natural eye.
Gretchen was a pretty girl, with the
fair hair and eyea of northern races.
Walter chatted with ber and, since he
waa a gallant lellow. paid her compliment*, expressing his admiration with
bis natural eye. Under this Influence
Gretcben painted an eye for htm that
corresponded with tbe other perfectly.
As soon as It was finished md put In
It* place Walter hastened to a mirror
aod was delighted with bis Improved
appearance. There wa* no difference
between the two eye*, except thnt on*
llv*d aod th* other did not But there
are many persons who do not notice
auch differences readily, and any causal observer would not notice that th*
young man wore an artificial eye.
Gretchen rejoiced greatly at her success, for during the sittings while she
was painting tbe false eye Welter had
looked at her ao pleaalngly with tbe
one she copied that he quite won her
heart Iu truth. It. was this expression
be put Into hi* natural eye that enabled her to do her work so well, for
tf ever a f las* eye could be expressive
tbe one she painted waa But the result of all thi* was that when Walter
went away from Gratchcn he took her
heart with bim.
Walter became a soldier tn the service
of a feudal baron wbo dwelt on a hill.

a peaceful way, and even in war there

The baron had • daughter Bertha,
who, following In the wake of mewl

Walter, who was a fine soldier and
waa rtnlug rapidly lo tbe uarou'a service, saw wbut ao advautage it would

it so happened that Just before the
wedding festivities were to tuke place
tlie king called npou the burou to con*
irlbute two eompunies of plkeiiien for
military service. Waller waa not made
or tbe stuff to remain at home at such
a time. Indeed, It wns bin province to

king. 80 instead of wedding garment*

do battle with the king's enemies, deferring bis miirrlnge till his return.
The baron's contingent arrived Just
ln time to take pint In a dsVlslv*
fight. Walter led them nud greutly

with a misfortune. Not having but
one eye. he needed a broader range of
vision tliuu u man with two, so be
raised the visor of his helmet for the
purpose, leaving the upper part of hi*

blow where bis right eye ahould have

He lowered but visor and fought th*
rest of tbe tight with his fuc* cou*

Now, It would never do for the young
soldier to go back to bla love without
two eyea. He bethought himself of
Herman snd his daughter, Gretchen,
and, turning over tbe command to the
next officer In rank, rode away to supply his deficiency. Herman was quite
ready to make him another eye and
have hi* daughter paint It Tbe eye
waa made, but while waiting for It
Walter, who could never be wltb a
pretty girl wlttoat getting at least
confidential, let It ont to Gretcben
that she must do aa well as liefore, for
he was engaged to marry the baron*
daughter, and If Bertha discovered
that he had but one eye tt would deprive him of all 01* glorloua opportunities.
Nothing could have been more unfortunate. Gretchen »et to work pre-
teudlng to copy hi* natural eye. She
gui*s It the proper color, but while on
the former occasion she Imparted the
pleasing expression of Its mate, ln this
case she put Into It an expression of

he was In a hurry to return and marry

castle wltb tbem so that his absence
from bis command would not be noticed. He caught them when they
were only a few miles from tt* castle
and, spurring ahead of them, dashed
over the drawbridge and Into the court
yard. Then, throwing himself from IJ*
horns, he sought Bertha.
It so happened thnt her cousin, a
young man wltb whom she had played
a* a child, bad come to pay a visit ond
wee wltb her at the time. Walter entered the room where they happened
to be, facing the morning sunlight
streaming through a window. Bertha'a
gas* became at once fixed upon the
new artificial eye aud saw only Its expression of diabolical Jealousy. Attributing It to ber afllanced's finding her

out of algbt Tha cousin, regarding
him angrily, half drew hi* sword: then,
tbrustlug It back ln It* acabbard, he.

Walter, not understanding the cause
of this treatment, sent to his fiancee

Waller rushed out to the courtyard,

him to tell him what hnd occurred

him In the eye, then turned nnd stalked
away. Walter tried several oilier* aud

Mounting bis horse, he rode bark of
Herman's and besought him to make
another eye. Herman consented; th*
