Magistrate Remanded Vancouver Lawyer Unitil Friday
Without Bail.
Nanaimo, Sept. 24th.—Israel
Rubinowitz of Vancouver and
Walter Pryde and William Moore
of Nanaimo appeared before
Magistrate Simpson to answer
the charge of having, on the previous evening, at No. 1 Mine,
watched Sam Davis and other
employees of the Western Fuel
Company, constituting an act of
intimidation contrary to the
Criminal Code of Canada, the
accused, on application of Crown
Prosecutor Shoebotham, being remanded to Friday morning at 10
o'clock. All the other court proceedings were short. They were
made interesting by reason of an
improvised address by Mr. Rub-
inwitz in applying for bail.
In the course of the proceedings Mr. Shoebotham said: "I am
sorry that I am not in a position
to go on with this matter today,
but I intend proceeding at the
earliest possible moment and that
will be Friday morning at ten
o'clock. I had arranged with
some work for the Attorney-General which will take today and all
day tomorrow. I came from Victoria this noon and it is necessary
that I devote the whole time to
that work. I will be prepared to
take the cases up Friday morning
at 10 o'clock and I will have to
ask for len'ency uutil that time.
The Court—I grant it.
Mr. Rubinowitz—I oppose the
application. In the first place I
have very important and urgent
matters which I must deal with
and my time is very precious to
me. Your worship has seen fit
not to allow bail. I oppose this
remand. I am prepared to face
this preposterous charge now.
The Court—The Crown is entitled to a remand if they ask it,
just the same as you would be
ehtitled to a remand if you asked
it. Your teaching must show
you that this is the course of procedure under the law. The Crown
has asked for a remand without
bail and I shall grant it.
Mr. Rubinowitz—I submit that
the grounds set forth by Mr
Shoebotham are of flimsy nature.
I have most urgent duties to attend to, not only of a private but
of a public nature, and I should
be allowed out on bail.
The Court—I am going to grant
the remand and I shall not allow
bail. I know of no reason why I
should treat you any differently
from any of the other accused.
If you choose to put yourself in
such a false position your are the
one who must bear it.
Mr. Rubinowitz—I ask ■ your
worship to give me a copy of the
warrant of committal.
The Court—Yes, a copy of any
paper can be given you. Anything fair and square you can get
but you shall be grantad no fav
ours that the other accused would
not be granted.
Mr. Rubinowitz—I ask for no
favours, I ask for justice and I
shall have it, if not here then
elsewhere. . I shall ask to be
supplied with a copy of the old
information, and the present information also as soon as possible.
Will your worship allow me to be
supplied with those informations?
And also, I understand, I am
charged with intimidating one
Jones and others. I would like
to have particulars of the others.
TheCourt—You can be supplied
with any information. •
Mr Shoebotham—I will furnish
you everything I possibly can.
Joint Celebration of Opening of
Provincial Exhibition and
New Westminist, Sept. 26.—
Everything is in readiness for
joint celebration on Sept. 30th of
the opening of the great provincial exhibition at New Westminster and the openin? of Kingsway
the newly paved highway between Vancouver and New Westminster and uniting South Vancouver and Burnaby. A half
holiday will be declared in nearly
every place on the lower mainland
and the celebration will be in
keeping with the importance of
the two events.
A huge automobile parade has
been arranged in which over 600
automobiles will participate, the
parade to accompany the officials
who take part over the new road
to the fair grounds at Queen's
With these two events and a
Minto Cup labrosse game in the
afternoon between the Salmon
Bellies of New Westminster,
world's champions, and the Vancouver Athletic Club team, favorites of the Terminal city,
together with the horse show and
special attractions in the evening,
there should be a record crowd
at the opening of the big fair.
The final Minto cup game will be
played on Saturday October 4th.
The third annual horse show,
which will be held in the magnificent new horse show building
will eclipse all previous shows of
its kind held in New Westminister and will be on a par with the
best ever held on the coast. A
record has been established in
the number of entries received
and Major General F L Lessard,
C B, of Toronto, the best judge
of horse flesh on the continent,
will act as judge.
Entries have been received for
the cattle department from Alberta. Saskatchewan, Washington and from many points in
British Columbia, including an
entry of 47 head of cattle from
the Hon. Lieut Governor Patterson's farm in the Delta. The
prize stock from the Provincial
Colony Farm will also be exhibited.

Methodist Minuter Grossly Misrepresents Situation in
The Herald of Wednesday says:
The Herald on a previous occasion, directed attention to a
speech or sermon on the local
strike situation by the Rev. W.S.
Crux, pastor of the West End
Methodist Church, New Westminister. The reverend gentleman is still persisting in his story,
and it appears with a few additional circumstances in the present issue of the Federationist.
It was perhaps the most ridiculous, as well as the most misleading account of the situation here
that has ever been published and
it is certainly not improved in its
latest dressing.
He said he spent a week in the
strike zone investigating for himself. He found first of all that
the reports appearing in the Vancouver newspapers describing
the disorders and rioting were
absolutely without foundation.
This is surely a statement which
a man with any sense of responsibility would hesitate to make in
any case, and which, under the
actual circumstances, no man of
any sense at all would ever dream
of making.
Then, look at this result of the
reverend gentleman's investigation. "The blacklisting of two
firebosses," he says, " who persisted in proclaiming the dangerous conditions of the workings,
as demanded by law, led to a
protest and a lockout and later
on to the Nanaimo miners coming
out in sympathy." Comment is
Describing the disturbance at
Extenion he says about one hun-
miners were delegated to go to
Extension to try to induce the
strikebreakers to leave work.
These men were fired upon,
whereupon they returned 'rather
hastily' to Nanaimo, secured
what weapons they could, and
proceeded again to Extension.
They found "the place was deserted, every inhabitant having
taken to the woods. Two shacks
were burned, the manager's
house was damaged by the breaking of windows, but not a shot
was fired. This is," he claimed,
"the true statement of what was
spread broadcast by the Associated Press as an armed onslaught
by the striking miners on the
Extension mine, coupled with
atrocities that would make a
Bulgarian soldie-hang his head."
Parson Crux does not know
what he is talking about and if
he can take no better care of
himself than this he should not
be allowed at large without some
one to look after him.
"The militia," he says, "were
never necessary unless to keep
the Government specials in order
and, although the individual
militiamen would offer no expression of opinion, their attitude, on
being questioned, showed they
were ashamed of being there and
their one desire seemed to be to
get home. The miners," he added, "are being prosecuted and
hounded to desperation, simply
because they demand a right to
live and a reasonable degree of
safety while earning their daily
In considering these statements
of Pastor Crux it has to be borne
in mind that the utterances of
reverend gentlemen, because of
position they occupy, carry more
weight than those of a man in the
ordinary walks of life. For this
reason ministers as a rule are
careful of what they say. Pastor
Crux is apparently the exception
to the rule. He could not, had
he tried, have invented grosser
misrepresentations than he has
here committed himself to, and
there ought to be some authority
in the Methodist Church competent to convince him of the
serious mistake he has made and
the grave harm he is doing to
this community.

King Robinson and Charles
Morris, two colored gentlemen,

offence,  ■
The charge against J M Brown

W F Ramsay appeared before

of A -_r#{ on Sunday evening,
Sejit%th, two weeks will have
rajmed since Robert Foster, the
istrict president, and Frank
Farrington, international representative of U M W of A. visited
Cumberland and addressed the
members of the local, tlieir friends
and sympathers. Farrington told
them that inside two weeks South
Wellington would be signed up
and have recognised the officials
of the U M W of A.
The two weeks have almost expired and we have not heard of
any negotiations as yet, much
less the recognition of the U M
W of A. But it is reported that
several members of the U M W
of A went to South Wellington
and attempted to obtain work
and were told when their services
were required they would be sent
for. If that be the case miners
will be working at South Wellington without any U M w of A
recognition, check off, or rake off.
when Farrington was up here
he was asked by one of the
audience if it was possible to get
Mother Jones from west Verginia
to come here. Seeing that Farrington and Foster have failed to
secure recognition for the U M w
of A, they evidently think Mother
Jones will be able to accomplish
the object. We do not know
Mother Jones. She may be one
of those persuasive kind of persons. If she is, it may be as well
for her to come here at once and
persuade a lot of the undesirables
to seek pastures new without

The laughter died away on Hetber*
Ingtou's lilts. Staling — he retreated. The girl did not seem real
somehow. She was out of place; site
had no connection with dead men and
things dealt nnd forgotten.
You are hurt, she said with a little
cry. Sit down there, hy the hedge,
and let mo hathe your wound.
Ho was too dazed to resist; he
watched her as 6he climbed down to
the liver and kneeling oh a boulder
moistened her handkerchief In the water.
Don't touch me! he cried almosl
savagely when she reached his side
again, and he felt her soft warm lingers about his forehead. Keep away
--don't touch me, there Is blood—
A little laugh rippled from her lips.
.vow you must please keep quiet. 1
rm noL afraid of blood. Why, I am

back and looked at him critically. Do

Things from the wood no longer pursue.".
There was an awkward silence for
a few moments. The girl, who had
been perfectly at her ease, was now
blushing—divinely. She was of medium height, the span of a man's arms;
slim and straight, oval face, features
not too regular but full of character;
dark blue eyes, hail the color of copper—hair that seemed to hold the
warmth a id light and the glory of the
sun even now rising o\er the peaks
of Ihe moorland.
Who are you?
She gave a little shrug ot thc shoulders and her bead tilted back with .
characteristic gesture.
I remembered you at once, yet you
bpri forgotten me; that's unkind, but
natural. I was a funny little thing,
- and lace and long hair when
you went away. I suppose I was not
more than Jx or seven years old, and
you—you were a dreadfully superior
being of nineteen or twenty. But I
remember you took me fishing once,
I hat's my excusi for poaching now.
Will you forgive me, Sir George, or
are you going to prosecute?
Hetherlngton put his hand to bis
forehead. The girl noted something
pathetic In thc gesture. It was just
tin unconscious, hopeless effort to remember. Ills lingers touched something warm and moist and he started;

1 suppose you didn't find anything
hrre w.rth remembering, the girl replied with .1 laugh. You always had
a bad memory, hadn't you? That's
why you were not more popular. 1
havo heard all sorts of things about
you—dreadful thing-. Sir George! The
whole village was In a tremble yesterday until you arrived. Naturally
for years we havo all been Ashing ln
your river ar.d poaching your game
and giving your flowers and fruit
away to the deserving nud undeserving poor. Now you have come back
everybody's afraid of you, and they
say there will be no more fishing or
shooting, no more fruit and flowers. 1
don't believe It! You see, ycu look
me fishing once, so this morning I
came down Just as usual prepared to
poach my brae, for daddy's breakfast;
but Ihe Utile brutes won't rise—seems
as If they knew you were here, and
were scared too.
For an Instant Hetherlngton saw a
vision of a deep, nols> peat-colored
pool and a dark, silent wood. A lonely
white road anil the body of a man lying hidden among tho bracken. Then
It vanished and he only saw the warm
young figure beside him; the dark
blue eyes, the bot bronze hair.
It's lucky I have no memory", he
said slowly, or I should remember a
horrible young mob called Sir George
Hetherlngton. Even after fifteen
years ot absence 1 am not popular,
The girl clapped her hands. I believe you will bel 1 knew you weren't
the ogre you have been painted, or
I ahould not have dared say the things
1 have been saying. And I nad a bet
with daddy— She stopped abort and
her cheeks grew Bcarlet.
Who Is daddy? Hetherlngton asked,
tlsing and slipping his arm through the
horse's bridle.
Well, he Is Colonel Itlchard Mehon
—and I am Peggy. We live along at
the Red Cottage—now mother'B dead.
We pay you thirty pounds a year for
the rted Cottage, and by the way,
father says lt Isn't worth lt. Now,
perhaps  you   will remember.
Oh yes, I think I am beginning to
remember now.
Miss Mehon looked a little doubtfully at HeUierlngton; her eyes twinkled humorously. Well, If you really
are all right, I will go back to my
Ashing. I have' permission to fish
haven't I, Sir George?
Yes, whenever you like—wherever
you l.'.te.
She nodded her thanks and moved
towards the gap between the hedge
and the bridge.
Y'ou don't mind my watching you?
Miss Mehon shook her head. I
shall just have a couple of casts at
the bottom of this poof. Then I must
go back, because lt Is getting late.
Sbe had reached the river bank and
was examining her rod. Hetherlngton v.aiclicil her walk down the shelving bench; she supped lightly across
half a dozen narrow boulders until
she reached a rock ln mid stream,
from where she cleverly cast up the
river against the wind. Presently she
hooked and landed a good half-Pound-
They are Just beginning to rise, she
shouted to him, but I guess daddy's
hungry too.
He walched her slide down the rock
and cross back to thc beach. Her
limbs were slender and supple as a
young fawn's. He had never seen a
woman so graceful, so simple. He
feasted hia eyes on her. It he had
ever known nny women in the past he
could not remember them, so comparison was impossible. But he was
sure that he had never seen a glii
like tbls. She made him forget the
terrors of 3 night and of the morning. She warmed the blood ln hia
veins; his spirit end flesh yearned
towards her.
She reached his side breathless,
but radiant. I wiH come down tonight and try and get you a brace,
Sir George, to show my gratitude for
your kindness. Sbe smiled over her
shoulder—for the preset, au revolr.
I_et me walk back v. lth you to the
Red Cottage. He noticed her look of
surprise. Colonel Mehon might be
glad to meet his landlord again.
It was rather a lame excuse, but
Miss Peggy seemed to enjoy lt. You
are really rather simple If you think
tenants ever enjoy Si-Ins their landlords; hut still, you are an exception.
In what way? ,    ,,
He was walking beside her, leadlnp.
I his horse; tvery now and then bo
stole a glance nt her face, lie began
to wish ho had not recovered quite so
quiokly from his fall. He had her
Utile handkerchief rolled tightly in a
ball In his left hand.
Peggy didn't answer his question;
her brows were knit as If sho were
struggling with sonic problem. You
always rather Interested me, Sir
George, she binned out suddenly—because all your life you have heen Juggling wilh death; shooting big game,
climbing Impossible mountains, taking
perilous voyages. And before you

best to break your neck in this quiet
little corner ot the world. It seems

It were on a stretcher, and the first

If you were as strong, proportionately, r.i the beetle to, and were a man
weighing a couple of hundred pounds,
you would be able to litt with ease
400,000 pounds. For a beetle can
lift a weight that to just 200 times Its
own weight.
Or If you could Jump about with
the same ease as the grasshopper
you could spring over the tallest building ln the Chicago loo., district without much effort.
Or, again, lt you wanted to be nearly as strong as the bee you would

Sounds From a Rainbow
It seems Incredible that a beam ot
light could be made to produce sound,
but such a thing can be done. A ray
of sunlight Is thrown through a lens
on a glass vessel containing lampblack colored silk or worsted, or any
like substance. A disk having Bllta
or openings cut In lt Is made to revolve swiftly ia this beam of light, so
as to cut lt up, thus causing alternate
flashes of light and shadow. When
one places his ear to the glass vessel
he hears strange sounds so long as
the flashing beam falls upon the ves-
A still more extraordinary effect Is
produced when the beam ot sunlight
to made to pass through a prism, so as
to produce what is called the solar
spectrum. This disk to turned and
the colored light of the rainbow is
made to break through ft. Now, if
thn ear be placed to the vessel containing the silk or other material, as
the colored lights of the spectrum fall
upon It, sounds will be given by the
different parts ot the spectrum, and
there will be silence ln other parts.
For example, If the vessel contnlns
red worsted, and the green light flash-
c-i upon lt. loud sounds will be given
nut. Only feeble sounds will be
beard when the red and the blue parts
ot the rainbow fall upon the vessel.
Other colors produce no sounds at
Green silk gives out sound best ln
a red light. Every kind of material
gives more or less sound ln different
colore and no Bound nt all ln others.

The Zsr of the Owl
It is held by naturalists that, ln order to capture Its prey the owl must
depend even more upon Its sense ot
hearing than upon that of sight. The
tufts of feathers that distinguished the
short-eared and the long-eared owls
are, of course, no more ears tban they
are horns.
The true ear cf the owl is a most
remarkable organ.
The facial disk of feathers that
gives the owl Its characteristic appearance serves as a kind ot sounding
board or ear-trumpet to concentrate
the slightest sounds and to transmit
them to the orifice of the true ear,
concealed In the small feathers behind the eye. Even in the barn owl
which possesses the least complicated
arrangement of this kind, the orifice
of the ear to covered by a remarkable
flap of the skin, while ln the other
tpecles there are striking differences
ln the size and shape of this orifice
and Its covering flap on the two sides
of the head.
Tbe exact way in which owls utilise
this elaborately specialized apparatus
has still to be discovered.

that unmarried women are just as happy as married ones—that, in fact the

How to Save Your Tires
A tire manufacturing comix ny gives
this advice about the care ot motor
ca. tires:
The idea seems universal among motor car owners that the tire cost ot
their equipment far exceeds all other
costs that they have to deal with. It
to true tbat the tire cost must necessarily be greater than any other cost
of running connected with the machine
but Is tar from necessary that the
cost shall bear such a ratio to the
other expenses as is generally the. case
This ts especially true where pneumatic tires are used. It tires were
loaded only to the maximum loads
for which they were designed, if they
were kept inflated always to the pressure called for by the tire manufacturer, it they were not run in ruts, if
they were properly and quickly repaired when damaged, and If they were
run on wheels which did not wobble,
their cost of upkeep would be cut ! 1
half.    .
Married Wen Live Longest
Married men live longer thnn bachelors or widowers because they hava
loving wiveB around to say: One nip's
enough,-John and to seo that hubby
gets his dose ot quinine wben he
comes home with wet feet.
Th-> Journal of the American Medical Association reaches this conclusion In its current tosue, published recently. The journal also comments
on the fact that married men, deprived of their wives by death or the
divorce court, pine away nnd die at a
speedier rate than bachelors.
Undoubtedly the lower death rate
among married men Is partly due to
the fact that married men live much
more regular lives and consequently
avoid many of the dangers of irregular living, sayB the Journal. '"his
view would seem to be corroborated
by statistics as to the mortality among
married men who have lost their
wives either by death or divorce. Tlie
mortality rate among widowers and
the divorced Is almo.t double that ot
married men of the same age.

when, in 3856, he accompanied the
crown prince of Prussia to Moscow to

At a ball In the kremlln Moltke was
introduced to a group of picturesque
potentates from central Asia, with
thoir girdles stuck full of daggers
and pistols, ln the present day Albanian manner and lie begged to know
whether theso firearms of theirs wore

Builds Houses for Birds
A ptcturcsquo method ot fighting an
Insect may be seen from the train
windows at MarshOeld, a wide, outlying cranberry bog, dotted over with
whito bird houses on slakes. The
owner of the bog, Cant. B. Q. Cahoon
invented this method of lighting certain pests destructive to cranberry
vines and berries some thirty years
ago, and is still enthusiastic over the
success of it.
Capt. Cahoon has Installed 100 new
bird boxes ol a seventeen acre bog,
thus inviting and surely housing n
large colony of swallows, whoso all
day occupation will be to swoop down
upon obnoxious moths from their cottage watch towers nnd stuff tlie same
down tho throats of voracious youngsters still ln tlie nest. lt Is a neat
littlo scheme by whlc.. everybody
seems to bo pleased and benefited except the moth. Incidentally other
bogs also aro benefited, although but
few similar bird houses are to bo
found yet In other parts of the great
Cape cranberry   area.
In the earlier days of the experiment the bird boxes were placed thrt-e
ou a stake, rather near together. Ou
the last log laid out of seventeen
acres, 100 boxes wero placed forty feet
apart, on tall stakes, following the
lino of fhe ditch crossings, having the
appearance of great regularity when
seen from the right point ot view, but
merely scattered about when looked
at from across the bog. Looking
down the line tho dazzling white cottages, each neatly topping its stake,
lifted high above the soft gray green
level of blossoming vines, look like
the habitations cf so*-, odd littlo nature people, possibly engaged la tilling the field beneath.
Capt. Cahoon based his original experiment ou the simplo observation
that • .vallows liked moths and private
lodgings. To tempt them to live on

Whiskey Insurrection
The first rebellion against tlio federal government In tho United Slates
was tho whiskey Insurrection ot western Pennsylvania, which had Its beginning 122 years ago, when a meeting wns held In Brownsville, Pa., to
protest against the Imposition of an
excise tax on spirits distilled from
grain. This measure had been devised by Alexander Hamilton to bring
revenue Into tho treasury of the In*
taut republic. It provided fc a tax
of from 9 to 23 cents a gallon, according to the strength of the liquor. Tho
farmers of western Pennsylvania wero
hard hit by tho tax. Owing to tho
high cost ot transportation, they
could make a living out of grain
growing only by converting tho product of their fields Inlo liquor. Feeling ran high after the Brownsville
meeting, and one of the tax collectors
wns tarred and feathered. President
Washington Issued a proclamation In
which ho earnestly exhorted nnd nd-
minlshed the rebellious tanners, but
they paid no heed lo It. Five hundred
strong, they attacked the liouso of
Gen. .Neville, western Pennsylvania
revenue collector and In tho battle the
leader of tho Insurrection, John Hoi*
croft, or Tom tho Tinker, was killed.
The Insurrection was finally put down
by federal troops under Llghlborse
Harry Lee.

Western  Recognition  of    the    Gre. t
Work the C.P.R.  Is Doing for
The confirmation by Sir Thomas
Shaughnessy of the intention of the
C.P.R. to expend $100,000,000 ln the
extension of its Hne3 and perfection of
its system in the nest, come., at the
present timo as a piece of very wel-
como news indeed and furnishes
moreover , nmple opportunity for the
peoplo of Canada to r.vlcw tho situation and examlno Into tho relations
which subsist between the Dominion
ot Canada and this great corporation.
When the evidences of a world wide
trado depression which Is now coming
on are to be seen on nil sides and
the money situation is becoming all
tha while tighter, the announcement
ot a gigantic expenditure of this kind,
and at this particular tlm appears
liko a vorltablo rift in the clouds before the storm has had tlm. to break.
We have all heard tho C.P.R. damned for one thing aud another and
many of us may havo done n bit of It
ourselves at times when we didn't
happen to think that things wire coming sufficiently our way; but nevertheless whero Is there another corporation that has so thoroughly Identified
itself with the Interests ot a country
as this mammoth railway and steamboat company has done? Neither Is
this the first Instance when British
Columbians In various districts and at
various times have soen Infant Industries nursed along by th. company ln
a way that was truly pat. ,'nal, and lt
doos not detract from the situation in the slightest whore It may be
seen that in doing so tbey wero moro-
building up profitable business for
themselves In the years to follow. It
is now twenty years since they placed
a steamer on Okanagan Lako that was
far beyond the capacity re.ulred at
that -ime, and many a lean trip was
mado before there was business
enough to Justify tho expenditure
Any settler on the shore of Okanagr.n
Lako had only to moor a log or two
at tho shoro to serve as a wharf and
display a white flag when ho wanted
the boat to call, and ho ond his little
Lit of produce or belonging:, was taken aboard. Tho mining Industry ln
tho Boundary was fostered along the
same way, :.nd when it was a matter
of life or deatli to mk^e owners to
determine whether the low grade ores
of tho Boundary could bo made to
yield a profit, the C.P.R. did their
part to help out the situation by giving
a rate of 35 cents per ton for tho
transportation of ore to the smelters
at Greenwood, Grand Forks and
Boundary Falls long beforo there was
any other road to share this business
with them.
In fact, Sir John A. Macdonald, far-
seeing statesman as he was, builded
even better than ho knew when he
tied up with the men who risked their
fortunes In the gigantic scheme of giving Canada a railway from ocean to
ocean; and any aid which ho and his
parliament wero able to givo at critical periods to help it through, was
bread sown on the waters, which Is
since coming back In countless ways
and tbls latest manifestation ln the
expenditure of $100,000 In tho extension and Improvement ot their system ln tho vest at this particular
time ,s but another magnificent instance ot t;-o | ollcy they havo seen
lit lo pursue nnd tho national sentiment which has Inspired It. To do
the right thing at the right time Is
a happy faculty that is unfortunately
not possessed by all, nnd neither are
all In a position to do lt, but lt Is
fortunate for all lhat those who are
ln _ position to do so, have the will
lo do bo.-—Iledley, B.C. Gazette,

Caring for Caged Birds
Vegetable food ot some hind Is a
necessity for the caged bird. A lettuce leaf, water crcs., a small piece
of apple, a grape or a small thin piece
of raw potato If thero is nothing else
should be given every dny. The sta-
plo food Bhoul:'. bo canary seed mixed
with a small porcentage of rape and
goldeu millet, but occasionally, in cold
weather add a littlo hem seed.
Should the bird's nails grow too
long, tako him iu your hand, loosely,
but firmly, hold his toot In a cup of
warm, soapy water for several minutes to soften tho nail, then cut the
extreme end with a pair of sharp nail
- i.sors.
A bird should be accustomed lo having a bath every morning. The best
best plau to encourage this is to remove the bottom ot the cage, put a
small dish of water on a sheet ot paper, and set the top of the cage over
it. Many birds have to be coaxed
iuto taking a bath, and it your bird
has not been accustomed to lt, it will
help matters to remove the seed and
water dishes. After ho has bathed
hang Ihe cage In a warm pleace so
that there may bo no fear ot the bird
becoming chilled.

There ajopears in the editorial columns of the Federationist
of Friday, September 19th, on article on " What Recognition
Means." In his explanation he gives a sort of resume of the
troubl*. on Vancouver Island. From the standpoint of one who
is on the ground and who knows the circumstances of the case
the conclusion is that the writer of the article knows nothing
about the matter. Otherwise the Federatioiiist is making a
first class effort to mislead the working class of this Province,
who have already been led astray to a great extent by Farrington, Foster, et al, and it is absolutely unnecessary for the
Federatioiiist to render them any further assistance.
The Federationist says as follows :—
" In case there might still be some lingering ideas in the
public mind that the situation on Vancouver Island is solely
the work of ' foreign agitators,' it may be as well to present a
brief review of the trouble from its inception.
" In the first place industrial war was declared, not by
the union miners, but by the Canadian Collieries (Dunsmuir)
Ltd , wbo locked out their employees, evidently with the intention of replacing them hy the less efficient but more docile
Chinaman. This action they took because the men had taken
steps' to protect themselves hy calling upon the company to
obey and the government to enforce the law.
"Although those earlier events have passed into history
they may be news to some.
"It should be noted that a committee appointed by the
miners at Cumberland to investigate the condition of the
mine an regards tbe presence of gas w.s dismissed by the
company for giving a truthful report of their findings, for re-
porting gas, in short. (Should anyone doubt the importance of
this and bow vitally it affecte the men, let him take n'i.e of
the fearful explosions that huve occurred in the past few years
iu Canada alone. The memory of Extension, Bellevue and
Fernie disasters is still fresh aud will not be easily effaced.
When it is realised that the mine owners on the Island were
criminally careless as regards gas, and that in dir ct contravention of the laws of /iritisli Columbia, no one can go so far aa to
blame tbe miners for desiring to protect themselves.
" Following upon the discharge of their committee, the
men decided to bold a meeting for the purpose of arriving at
some solution of llie dillioulties. As there were three shifts of
eight hours each operating tlie mine, one-third of the men
were constantly at work. lt was obviously impossible for all
the men to take part in the meeting and the mine be kept going. It was likewise out of tbe question for two-thirds of the
men to deckle upon action involving the otlier third. A holiday
was therefore declared in order that a representative meeting
might be held. As soon as this was done the company declared
u lockout aud the fight was on,"
We would remind tlie Federatioiiist that the trouble on
Vancouver Island is absolutely the work of foreign agitators
assisted by the U. M. Wot A. On Sept. 15th, 1912, they
decided to take tt holiday without notifying their employers
and shut the mines down for two whole days. The Canadian
Collieries on the third day posted notices notifying all employees to return their tools, otherwise they toould be charged
against them. The miners returned the tools and ceased to be
employees of the company. Since when the U. M. W. of A.
has supported tbem.
With reference to tlie dismissal of a certain gas committee
for giving a truthful report of their findings, this is absolutely
false and the B. C. Federatioiiist knows it. There ia not a
miner on Vancouver Island to day can say he was dismissed
for giving a truthful report concerning a certain mine while
serving on a gas committee, If the Federationist knows of any
we would like to have their names. The whole article in
the journal in question is a misrepresentation. Local agitators
who patronise the paper say so.

suffer most. Vou would not get the

of cool water was not at hand frequently—why expect the horses to go

You say you have no water In the

a.clean barrel or two. Put lliem In
a .wagon or truck—fill with water and
haul to tlie field each morning and
noon. Take a rail along and water
Iho horses two or throe times each
forenoon and afternoon. Even if you
only give them half a gallon each it
will greatly refresh them. You
should just as soon attempt to cut a

Science Wakes up to a Fact That the
Public Have Long Realized
Kon scientific persons have long
realized the remarkable Btrallarlty la
handwriting of members of the same
family, sometimes lasting tor halt a
dozen generations, and now, lt seems,
science Is at last waking up to this
suggestive fact ln heredity. Sir Hickman Goodlee, president ot the Royal
College of Surgeons, said recently;
I have lately been reading old letters dating back to the early part of
the eighteen century, and I have been
struck with tho way ln which niero
handwriting Is handed down from
father to son, and mother to daughter.
It 13 impossible to trace quite clearly my groat-grandfather's writing ln
that of my cousin's and father's and
my own. If mere handwriting Is thUB
transmitted, together with tho tono ot
the voice and the shape of the nose,
the question arises whether any one
need bo ashamed of his defects, sorry
for his misdeeds, proud of his success,
or satisfied with the cjnsclousncss of
virtue. Wo may feel the long arms
of our ape-like ancestors stretching
out of tho past and molding our char-
icters. We 1iiay rend all that has
•ver been written about free will from
the time of Aristotle, and we may
hug the notion that our actions have
aeon predestined from the nebulous
j'.ato of our planet.
But it makes no difference to us.
Wo nre still doggedly convinced that
by taking thought wo can add one
cubit to our stature, or at any rate
prevent lt being oue cubit less.

Woolen Cloths
The first woolen cloths manufactured In England were produced by a
colony of seventy families of Dutch
cloth-workers, who landed In England
July 26, ln tho year 1331, having been
induced to settle In England by a liberal grant from Edward III. Worsted manufacture was commenced In
Norfolk a few years later, and the Industry so launched soon reached largo
proportions. Every effort was made
to protect tbe infant Industry, and lu
1463 It was ennctc-d that no cloth
but of Wales or Ireland should be Imported Into England. In the seven
teenth century, during the reign of
Charles II, a law was passed that all
persons should be burled In woolen
cloths. In 1700 an act was passed
by parlloment, prohibiting the Importation into England of Indian muslins,
chintzes, and cottons, which were
threatening to supplant woolen cloths

last century that cotton replaced wool

Much of the loss to crops, building*
and other Improvements, caused by
railway fires lu cultivated sections of
the Prairie Provinces, could be avoided If farmers would raise some non-
conibustlblo crop on a strip of land
adjacent to railway rights of way.
Alfalfa Is suggested In this connection, since this crop will not bum and
a narrol strip will form a thoroughly
efficient fireguard. Where clover can
be grown successfully. It will answer
equally well. Tho growing of potatoes, beets, or other loot crops will
serve the samo purpose, whero local
market conditions will permit. Thtt
would he a step hi the much to be desired direction ot diversified farming.

and long distance phone numbers ot
the owners, so thnt she could notify

iwrong, such as lire, burglary, etc.
Every day sbe went tbe rounds of Inspection, going through each house-to
