DEANE WAS TIRED
Spends Holiday Studying
Labor's Cause.
IS PLOTTING SOCIALISM
Hedley Gazette Puts Editor of Daily
News Just Where He Properly Belongs.
Tim Nolson News, published by F. J.
Deane, contains this somewhat remarkable paragrab, nays the nullify
Qaiette:
"Mr. K. J. Deane, proprietor of tho
Dally New*, returned last night from
an extended trip to various British
Columbia points, He has been absent
from the city for atx weeks, and dur-
Ing that time has visited the towns
and cities along tile mulu line of Uio
0.  1*.  it.,  tlit1  lower  mainland,  island
and simiikameen.    Apart   from   the
principal motive of having a holiday,
Air. DeattO's idea was to make a careful Htmly of la hor conditions, so as tu
form a just estimate of thu causes
which led to tlie recent agitation for
admission uf free Chinese labor. Fur
that purpose hu went tu the Simiikameen, Where hu cuuld find fruit growers who are already operating on a
large scalo and learn their views at
first hand. Last night, however, being
tired after his return Juurney, he wus
not prepared tu speak ot thu conclusions la* had formed. Today hu will
throw his holldap habits uslde aad settle down to work again."
Thu above paragraph, as ft appuurud
ln lhe News, was honored with a
three-decker heading which informed
its readers thut the "labor case" hud
been "studied," and that "Mr. F. J.
Deane had returned frum an extenied
trip" aud was "Armed with the views
ur  Slmiikuineen  fruit growers,"
Elsewhere uu the sumu page of thu
News  is  thu   important  auuuuucemeut
that
"Ere hu (Mr. Macdonald) returns,
he hopes tu make a trip through the
Simiikameen and become thoroughly
BOQUainted with the political sltuution
in  Mr. Shatfurd's district.    The Simll-
kameen is destined tu _uc an interesting light during the coming election,
for, while the present member, Mr.
Shatford, is universally respeeted, Ws
course in connection wiih severe!
questions which came before the house
during ihe last session at Victoria was
noi altogether pleasing to his constituents, it Ih early yet to say who his
opponent may be; thu LtherulH of the
Simiikameen have not yet made any
announcement pn that subject. Nev-
ertheless, M)ey are curtain to put up
an earnest and effective fight."
Now what is all this about? In the
Blrollkameen riding wu wen' not aware
that there was any labor ipiestion to
be Studied except the scarcity of labor,
below   Keremeos,  on   the  V., V. &  E.
grades, which prevented the employment of sufficient force to give us
railway connection in Um time promised by the railway officials 12 mouths
age. It looks very much nH If this labor question is a flimsy and exceedingly silly pretext of Mr. Deane to thrust
himself Inlo public not leu and endeavor to establish some sort of connection
between the SinillkameiMi riding and
himself;   for   what   tire  the  facts?    A
farmers' institute meeting or something of lhat kind over about Kaslo
expressei doubts as to the wisdom of
keeping out Chinese by the Imposition
of a |B00 head tax aud passes a resolution that was forwarded to Ottawa
asking ihnt aald   tax    bo   withdrawn.
Now if Mr. Deane wanted to find
OUt nny more about Ihis thing, or to
"sludy the case," as his paper puts it,
why run [.way from the Koolenay;
and, mlrahlle dlctu! why shin for the
Himilkameen, which lies in the very
oposlte direction from where this little Asiatic plague spot hnd again broken out? It was exceedingly good of
him to appoint himself a'royal commission of one to study, meditate and
ponder, and the Simiikameen will modestly close Its eyes for the doffing of
those "holiday habits," that It may
learn the result of the pondorlngs.
But there nre other little evidences
to he recalled Illustrative of not. so
much Mr. Donne's kindly Interest In
the Simiikameen and In the cause of
labor as his interest In the Interests
of Mr. Deane in said Similkauiuen. A
few months ago, he was furnishing In
formation lo the Simiikameen Star intended to reflect upon L. W. Shatford,
M. P. P., ln reference to his position
on the eight-hour day for smelters,
last session, but was brought up with
a round turn by Mr. 11. A. Turner,
who was In a position lo show that
Mr. Deane'a sta*tumunts on that mailer were very wide of the truth. Mr.
Deane poses us uuu of the pillar;; of
the Liberal parly In the Interior, as
well as finding time for a little grand
stand play by way uf coquetting wllh
the Socialists. But where was he during lhe session uf 1006? During all
that session he was in thu press gallery of the house, slang whanging the
Soclallsls Whom he is now trying to
toady, and sending his paper in Nelson, garbled reports of the doings of
the house, that were disgraceful In the
violence of the partisanship which
they displayed. In thut session he
saw llie division on lhe eight-hour
Smelter bill, which is recorded on page
itO of "votes and proceedings," and
Which shows that thu member for Simiikameen who was present when tlie
vote wus taken, voted for the bill,
While J. A. Macdonald, leader of Uie
Uberal  opposition,  and  J.  H.   Brown,
the Liberal representative from the
Qreenwood riding, where smelter men
were working 12 hours q day, voted
against thu bill, without a word of
protest or reproof from Mr. Deane. No
thanks to Mr. Macdonald or Mr. Drown
for voting for the hill in the session
of LflOB, for in the Interval between
the sessions of 19l>_ and 1908 the question of au eight-hour day iu the
Boundary smelters was settled by mutual arrangement between the smelters and their employees and an eight-
hour day granted quite Independent of
Mr. Macdonald.
It is currently reported thnt Mr.
Deane Is plotting to induce thp Socialists to pledge their support to his own
candidature as Liberal nominee In the
Simiikameen. Thu Socialists and labor voters, however, have not forgotten how he boasted on the platform
in Medley, in lhe federal campaign in
1804; that Duncan Hobs had been sailing into ihe Socialists and handling
them without gloves, and they are able
tu take his measure now, when he
conies begging for their support after
having played them false In the past
when lt suited his purpose to do so.
And pray, who will believe that F.
J. Deane would risk 15 cents of his
own money to lead a forlorn hope in
the Simiikameen? Where would 'the
campaign funds come from but the
Grand Trunk Pacific, whose agent,
Morse, tried to hold up this province
for 15,000 acres per mile, hut was
turned down hy the McBride government, who refused to stand for it?
The Simiikameen knows something of
the advantage of having a* representative upon whom lhe big corporations
have no strings, and they are not disposed to throw away that advantage.

BRUCE MOST STAND TRIAL FOR 1SUIU
Prisoner Acquitted of Murder Yesterday, Indicted Again Today on Lesser
Charge���True Bill Returned���Civil Case for Damages
From Forest Fires.
Before the court opened Laughlln
Uruce was brought before his lordship charged with aggavated assault.
He pleaded not guilty and elected to
he tried hy a Jury.
The promptness of Hritish Justice
and Ihe efficiency of the administration of the law In Hritish Columbia
were strikingly exemplified in today's
session of the supreme court In Nolson.
Lnughlln Uruce was tried yesterday
on a charge of murder and acquitted
hy direction of the court, because the
medical evidence as lo the direct
cause of the death of Hugh Mcflarvey
left a dssiilit which, however slight,
wus fatal to the crown's case ln lbe
eyes of lliitlsh law, as to the necessary
connection between the assault upon
him by Uruce and the attack of pneumonia.
A charge of assault was at once preferred and suhmilled to "the grand
Jury. A true hill was returned this afternoon and Uruce will be tried on the
less serious charge on Friday of next
week.
This morning's session of the court
wus taken up with the opening of a
trial of a nature which Is of special
interest In Kootenay, as It may have
an important hearing on a question
which bos been discussed by hoards
of trade for many years past.
The case of the Fernie Lumber company against the Crow's Nest Pass
Southern Hallway company, J. W.
Stewart & Co., and R. Quulfe, Is for
dumageB caused to tlie plaintiff's property by a forest fire.
The fire, which damaged the timber
limits of the lumber company, originated, it Is alleged, from the clearing
operations ou the right of way of the
railway company. The contract for
building tho road had heen let to J.
W. Stewart _ Co., a well known firm
of railway contractors which has heen
concerned directly or indirectly in
nearly every piece of railway construction In  the province.
The clearing of the particular stretch
of the right of way from which It la
alleged tbe fires started, was suliiet
to one Robert Quulfe, who, It is alleged, look no precautions to prevent
the spread of fires.
Two olher actions will follow, of the
same kind and with the same defendants, but with different claimants,
Quulfe has entered no defence, has
not In fnct heen served with notice of
claim, ns bis whereabouts are unknown. The claimants profess Indifference as to Qualfe, rr-lylng upon the
responsibility of the railway company
and Ihe original contractor.
system of flro protection will he made
next year, nud both Ihe provincial aud
Dominion governments will probably
act on some of Ihe resolutions which
wero passed at the Canndlnn forestry
convention last week. Every foreman
nnd scaler will be appointed a fire
ranger at n salary of $6 a day.
II Is not probable, however, that the
government will prohibit ihe location
of settlers In tho forests, as II Is not
considered lo he fair lo tho settlers.
Two  Freighters Wrecked.

Furnace Blew Up.
Ilaltlmoro, Md��� Oct. 3.���One of the
furnaces of the Maryland steel company at Narrow Point hlew up this
morning, It Is reported a number of
men were killed.
The case Is being tried by a special
Jury and six counsel ure engaged.
Tbe first case called this-morning
was that of the Fernie Lumber company against the Crow's Nest Southern Railway company, J. W. Stewart
& Co., and Robert Quulfe. K. P. Davis, K. C, and W. R. Ross, K. C��� appeared for the plaintiffs; A. H. MacNelll, K.
C, for the railway company; E. V.
Bodwell, K. C. for Stewart & Co.
With Mr. Hodwel) were W. A. Macdonald, K. C, and L. P. Eckstein.
Mr. Hodwell moved to add to the
statement of defence of the defendants, Stewart & Co., the allegation that
Quulfe was an Independent contractor
and that if fires were caused hy his
act, Stewart & Co. were not responsible for them. The motion was allowed.
The special jury list Is: H. Amas,
W. W. Beer, H. Bird, H. Byers, M. S.
Davys, S. 8. Fowler, E. F. QJgot, J. A.
Gllker, W. O. Gillette, W. Irvine, P.
Lament, E. B. McDermid, T. O. Procter, II. Selous, J. Laing Stocks and J.
11. Wallace.
Each side exhausted its challenges
before the following were selected:
11. Bird, S, S. Fowler, M. 8. Davys,
J. 11. Wallace, P. Lamont, E. F. Gigot,
II. Byers and 11. Amas. H. Bird was
elected foreman and the jury was
sworn,
E. P. Davis ln opening expressed a
fear that the case might be long on account of the number of witnesses. The
action, he said, was for damages for
spread of fire, negligently allowed by
Qualfe to escape from a right of way
of the Crow's Nest Southern Railway
company, the contract for the clearing
of which was let to Stewart add sublet hy him to Qualfe.
The contracts expressly provided
that tlie railway company's engineer,
should supervise the work of clearing
and both contractor and subcoutractor
were therefore servants of the com-
vany.
Mr. Davis then from a map explained
to the Jury the locality of the fire
from which the uction arose. He contended tbat the price of $65 an acre
for which Quaife undertook to clear
was inadequate to provide proper
means and enough men lo control the
fire and   prevent its escape.
Accordingly Qualfe made no attempt at control, bul set out his fires
along 3000 or 4000 feet of the right of
way al one time.
Mr. Davis contended thnt the only
proper method of clcar'ng was hy
gathering brush Io the centre, leaving
ample spacer as fire guards and burning only a little at a time. All these
precautions were neglected hy Qualfe.
DEPARTMENT GAREEESS
Overseas   Limited   Is   Delayed   Nine
Hours Through Indifference of
Postal Authorities.
Oltawa, Oct. 3.���The people of Can-
ami hnve watched with much Interest
nud a certain patriotic pride the race
of the Canadian Pacific steamships
and mall trains against time from
Hongkong to Ltvorpool. Apart from
the sporting Instinct aroused hy any
trial of speed there was the knowledge
that the feat ucing achieved was one
of great service to thc empire and
that tho eyes of tbe world were upon
this exemplification of the progressive
enterprise of a young country like
Canada. That we Bhould have the
transportation facilities organized and
under our control to trnnsport the
malls half way around the globe In
competition with the most highly organized transportation companies in
the world wns n matter of legitimate
pride. Apart from thai It was ono of
the best ndvertlsements that Canada
has had.
What will be the chagrin of the
people of Canada when they learn that
this great effort on the part of the
Canadian Pacific has possibly been defeated by the suplneness or Incapacity
of the government iiostofflco department.   The Overseas Mail train start-
Many complaints were made to Qualfe
on the subject without effect, and after the fires had been ln progress for
a week, from July 23, 1904, they hroke
from the right oT way and spread,
threatening three mills of the Cedar
Valley, Elk, aud Fernie Lumber companies. Then It became quiescent and
remained so for a week, when lt revived, and spread again, damaging the
property of the Fernie Lumber company.
Examinations of officials of tbe
company and of J. W. Stewart were
then put In by Mr. Ross. They indicated that Alexander Lupfer, engineer
of the railway company, did not at
any ti,:-e Inspect Qualfe's work of
clearing 11," right ot way. Qualfe was
paid directly uy Stewart's manager.
All communications, .'aiming damages
made uimn the company -'ere forwarded to Stewart.
Mr. MacNelll objected to any evidence as to subletting, but lt was allowed to be read.
Mr. Bodwell thought Qualfe's name
should be dropped from the record, as
he had not been served and was not
represented, and evidence with regard
to him should not be accepted. He
further submitted tbat if Qualfe
should properly be a party, the trial
should not go on.
His lordship���It doesn't affect the
court.
Mr. Bodwell���I move that his name
be struck out
Mr. Davis���We do not care about
Qualfe.
His lordship, to Mr. Bodwell���You,
as representing Stewart, have no
Btatus to object to Qualfe's name appearing.
Mr. MacNelll���I object to the contract between Stewart and Quaife going as evidence against the railway
company.
His lordship���Ruling reserved.
Tbe evidence was then read.
The court then adjourned until 2 p.
m., to resume the case at 3 p. m.
When the court resumed at 2 o'clock
the members of the grand jury were
lr their places.
His lordship briefly addressed them
on the new charge of assault preferred

the reasons for the failure of the indictment for murder and recommitting
hlm to the deliberations ot the jury.
The jury were absent about 20 minutes aud returned, reporting a true
bill. Laughlln Bruce was conducted
back to the dock and the grand jury
was discharged.
Bruce then pleaded not guilty and

date of his trial.

Whether this failure was due to tho

might reasonably be supposed that
under such exceptional circumstances
the postoffice authorities would have

ROUND THE BOUNDARY.
Fernie Coal
Strike Affects
Operations.
Smelting
(Special to The  Daily Canadian.)
Grand Forks, Oct. 3.���The coal
miners' strike iu East Kooteuay ls
now being felt in the Boundary district. During the lust lew days the
supply ot coke to the Granby smelter
hus beeu reduced, and In consequence
of this fact lt bus been found necessary to close down four furnaces at
the Islg reduction works, lt Ib reported thut if the strike continues lt will
be ouly a matter of a week or two be-
tore the entire smelter will be idle.
Of course, If arrangements for suply-
ing coke can be made with the International Coal _ Coke Co. at Colemau,
Alta., and the strike does not extend
to that camp the smelter may be kept
going from that quarter, but the present outlook Is anything but encouraging lor the continuous running of the
Granby smelter unless the ooal miners' strike ls ended.
As was predicted, a most sensational session of the city council was held
last evening. The question before the
council was whether the city should
pay $626 for the fire team or not
Mayor Hut ton strongly opposed the
deal, but the majority of the council
favored the purchase and passed a
resolution to that effect, whereupon
Mayor Hutton gave notice that lt waa
his Intention at the next meeting of
tbe city council to veto tbe obnoxious
resolution. A goodly number of citizens were present and considerable
excitement prevailed.
The postmaster general will on the
12th Instant award the contract for
the carrying of the malls between
Grand Forks and Franklin camp and
intermediate points, and lt Is understood that the contract will call for
the carrying of, the mall from January

PossUily New Paper Es- f
tabllsbed at Capital
UJGHRIN THE OBSTACLE
Liberal Editor of Consemthre Organ Unacceptible to the Victoria Populace.
(Special to The Dally Canadian.)
Victoria, Oct. 3.���There Is some talk
here of establishing another daily
newspaper In Victoria to support the
Conservative party. There Is great
dissatisfaction among tbe rank and
file of the Conservative party because
Mr. Chas. H. Lughrin has been appointed editor of the Colonist. Lugh-
rln Is known to be one of tbe moat
prominent and aggressive Liberals 1* |
tbe province.
Changes In the staff of the Colonist
are coming with a startling frequency
since tbe reportd sale of that paper to
an unknown purchaser. Mr. C. L.
Gordon, who on Monday was made
night editor of the Colonist, returned
to Vancouver yesterday night, having
resigned his position.
The above facta aro all the news that
ls available at tbe time ot Tbe Canadian going to press. The situation ln
Victoria has been somewhat puxiling
to the friends of the Conservative
party since the sale of the Colonist
to Its new owner. There are rumors
of trouble ln the camp at the capital
city. Immediately upon the appointment of Mr. Lughrin as editor the
Colonist changea Its face and has not
since tbat time been in any sense a
truly Conservative paper.
It Is believed here that Lughrin haa
a free band In the matter of the editorship of the lifelong Conservative paper, hut the recent announcement I
he had a contract with the
ment of that paper, lasting
eral years, has caused serious
to arise In the minds of sl
friends of the Conservative party as to
what tbe future policy of that paper
ia to be.
Mr. Lughrin Is a clever writer, an
able editor, and a man fitted by education and abilities to fill the chair of
any editorial sanctum ln Canada. He
naa, however, attached himself to the
Liberal party and was one of the
most prominent workers In the laat
candidacy of Hon. William Templeman.
The only reason that can be assigned for the appointment ot Mr. Lughrin to tbe position of editor of the
Colonist Ib the present scarcity of good
editorial writers throughout the province. The province of British Columbia
bas Its peculiarities and these cannot
be fully and properly treated by a
stranger, Mr. Lughrin-s appointment,
while presenting several anomalies, ls
not after all one of the Inexplicable
things that occur ln Journalism.

The first game ot the individual

STATISTICS GONE MAD.
The Mall'Bmplre of Toronto haa
Something to say anent the recent statistics of the labor department of the
Canadian government and as these
arc of Interest to the readers of The
Canadian we reproduce Uie article ln
full. It says: "The new census of the
Northwest has made an exposure of
one of the numerous Impostures practised under the regime uf Mr. Clifford
Sirton. Mr. Sifton was a great boaster. Owing to the excellence of our
soil and our climate and to the provision that was made by the late government for the development of the
West, we have had In recent years
a very large Immigration. Mr, Sifton
has been in the habit of announcing
that he did it all. The very moment
the mugic name of Sifton was connected with the Interior department
the Immigrants began to rush in!
In his annual reports Mr. Sifton has
been in the habit of giving the numbers of immigrants he lias introduced
from abroad. The figures lor the past
few years are cited by the Regina
West, one of the progressive journals
of the new province of Saskatchewan,
as follows:
1902  C7.B29
1908 128,'_164
1904 130,331
1905 146,226
1906 (half year) 100,000
Total 572,340
"Between lho end of 1901 and tlie
mlldle of 1906 there were itdded to
the population by Immigration, according to the figures adduced first
by Mr. Sifton und afterwards by Mr.
Oliver, no less than 672,840 people.
Now there has been, in addition to the
immigration, a natural increase, bo
that the population ought to have
grown between 1901 and 1906 by nt
least 600,000. lint the census has just
been  taken, and  the result    is    given
thus:
1901 414,151
1906 805,000
Increase 390,849
"Let us statu tlie case once again.
The figures of Immigration give an
addition to the population during the
five-year term of 572,1140 people. The
natural Increase lu five years would
be at least 30,000. The census, therefore, should show an augmentation of
600,000 in the population. Bul it only
accounts for 390,849! There are 210,-
000 people missing.
Why this discrepancy? The Western pepole hold lhat the census has
been gerrymandered in order to keep
keep down their representation. That
ls to say, the government has knocked
off a hundred thousand or so of Uie
population to prevent the West "from
getting more members at Ottawa. On
the other hand, the suspicion is current that the Sifton immigration figures have been fraudulent and bogus
from the first. Certainly, If the con-
sub Is correct, Sifton's    reports   have
been false. We must have been given
these swollen figures for no other purpose than the deception of the public.
There is reason to fear that under the
Laurier government the very blue
books are tampered with.
HEARST'S   CANDIDACY
Of Mr. Hearst they kuow.or think
they know, a great deal, and as the
campaign progreBes they will learn
more. He is somewhat of a mystery
Like tlie man with the searchlight, he
turns a glare of publicity on everyone
else, remaining in the deeper shadow
himself. Among newspaper men in New
York it is generally supposed that the
brains of Hearst is Arthur Brisbane,
his editor-in-chief. Brisbane, lt is said
does Hearst's thinking and selects
his principles. Brisbane made hlm a
member of congress. Brisbane almost
made him Mayor of New York, and
Brisbane made him lho Democratic
candidate for the governorship. It
has been noticed that Mr. Hearst
makes few extemporaneous remarks.
His newspaper is, ln truth, his organ of
speech, and every day it gives him
a larger audience than is possessed by
any public man in the I'nited States,
including President Roosevelt himself.
This criticism is beside the point,
for, whether Brisbane or Hearst is to
be the real governor of New York, in
the event of a Democratic victory, it,
is upon Henrstit.ni that the people are
Invited to pronounce. Hearstism may
have some subtle difference from anarchy, but it is likely anarchy,the doctrine of discontent and demagoguery.
So far as may be judged from the
newspapers owned by Mr. Hearst, obscenity and sensationalism are outstanding features of it, so, too, is a
piety not unlike that in "Sanford and
Merton." Hearst denounces everything, especially wealth and corruption. Yet he is a millionaire, and it
is said that in the history of New
York politics there has been no such
corruption as that employed to secure
the present nomination of Mr. Hearst.
No doubt the devil is being fought
with lire.
Mr. Hearst's popularity with the
dissatisfied, tlie Ignorant, and the for-
elgnors was astonishingly shown last
November, when In Tammany's
stronghold, he came within a few hundred votes of defeating Tammany's
candidate for mayor. In going afler
the nomination for governor he defied
the Democratic leaders and organized
a parly of his own-���the Independent
League. This association has already
Qominated Hearst for governor. At
the last moment Tammany turned in
bi'lnd thu man who had dragooned it
an., voted for him. Jerome, the New
York Distriet Attorney, dropped out of
the race rather unexpectedly, an Mr.
Hearst's most popular opponent was
thus disposed of before the real struggle began. It will be interesting to
see whether Mr. Hearst can induce the
reputable Democratic press of New
York to light under his leadership.
EDITORIAL   COMMENT.
That, the Whitney government is doing good work for the people on the
power question is made plain by the
nagging tone of that monopoly organ
���the Toronto Globe. That paper has
been the champion of all the huge
power deals of the past. It supported
various Niagara Falls franchises, and
pronounced ihem excellent. It was
also the advocate of the Hoss policy
of water distribution amongst politicians. Against tho recent Healey'B
Falls concession, which was granted In
response to the   appeals of the muni
cipalities, It fought with bitterness.
The reason assigned for this conduct
by the Liberal papers of the neighborhood was the circumstance that the
development of the power at Heaiey's
Falls interfered with a monopoly
held by friends of the organ at Peterborough!
WHO   WILL   BE  JUDGE?
McDonald Not Alone in Aspiration for
the Bench.
Humor iu legal political circles has
it lhat there are no fewer than seven
aspirants for the vacant provincial
judgeship, says the Vancouver Province. Five are staunch Liberal lawyers and two are county judges.
The members of the bar whose respective friends are "proving" at Ottawa claims for their appointment are
Messrs. F. C. Wade, J. A. Macdonald.
provincial     Liberal    leader;      Colonel
Gregory of victoria,   Stuart   Hender-
derson, M. L. A. for Yale, and Mr.
Harry Senkler of Wilson, Senkler &
Bloomfield.
The two county judges whose promotion is being urged solely by friends
are Judge Henderson and Judge Clement of Grand Forks. In the opinion
of their friends both have earned the
right to supreme court distinction far
iii advance of the claims of any mem*
ber of the bar.
"If Mr. Macdonald wants it lie simply has to have it; all the others will
clamor for it in vain," said a close
friend of the "party" today.
But there is the doubt In the present state of the |>olUieal barometer It
Is the view of some who claim to know
the Liberal leader from skin to soul
that he would rather take the present
chance, "so full of prosperous hope,"
for the premiership, than even the
chief justiceship, were it vacant. Tho
bench would  be an easy matter later.
"From present Indications," concluded the close friend of the party, "I
think it is between the promotion of
Judge Henderson and the appointment
of Mr. Wade."
Both  Right.
Miss Marie Cahlll was discussing
the talkative woman, and incidentally
told the following good thing about a
married couple.
"The wife, in the middle of the
night, was awakened by the loud
snores of her husband. She endured
the horrible racket a�� long as she
could. Then, pinching the man sharply, she said:
" 'Herbert, you'd make less noise if
you kept your mouth shut!'
."Herbert, sleepy and surly, muttered:
" 'So would you!' "���Young's Magazine.

STIRRING WORDS ON  LABOR.
Salvation  Army Officer  Declares  Hie
Opinloni.
Last Sunday evening nt Calgary the
adjutant of the Salvation Army gave
expression to his views on labor questions, speaking from Ihe text, "Would
Christ Belong to a Labor Union"? Tho
adjutant quoted from St. Matthew,
ix:37,  "The laborers are  few."
lie asked, docs this question bring
Him down? No, He brought Himself dowll and worked at the carpenters' trade. Was He not weary with
the hardest toll? Did He not rise at
C o'clock?
WoUld He not belong to an elevating labor union today? Let the man
who Hays no prove his case. The Salvation Army is for the working man.
All men of labor unions were not
true friends of thc |K>or. Some are
delegates to get and hold their jobs.
Hut it would not be just to condemn
1000 men so, just because   one   is a
hypocrite. There are no labor unions
in the jungles of Africa or among the
Hottentots. Why? He-cause there Is
no Christianity there. Christ was and
ls the author or brotherhood, It was
He that uttered that golden rule, "Do
unto others as ye would that they
should do unto you."
There are two sides to every question. Is it right (hat the laboring man
should say: "You must give us Ihis
and that, every man alike." Let a
man work and get what is coming to
him. Some meu compared with others
are not worth 5 cents. Ib it fulr to
pay him the same as a good man?
Society lias interests, sacred ones,
which must he taken Into account, lt
is an old blunder to prefer force tu
moral agency; It fs ln fact lhe secret
of failure.
Men may have tlie right If they so
choose uot to work���but tliey have no
right to prevent other men from taking their places or say, "You must not
work."
Under no conditions should they allow tlie liberties of those who decide
to work to be destroyed.
This is not a day when employers
and employees with their obstinacy
and dissatisfaction hurl Injustice and
dissatisfaction in the face of the general public and, as in some instances,
at the risk of life.
Every question which concerns tbe
world of labor Is a vital interest of
Christ and the church. Christ came
to save the individual man and everything of value to life.
Christ would Join the labor union,
as long as it was a labor union, but
would he join an Idle gang? Would
he join the strikers? Would Christ
remain idle while so much remained to
be done? Had not injustice been
hurled at ills face by this? And yet
He labors; Christ stlil works. His
blessing is with every good work and
everything that aids tn the redemption
of mankind has His blessing, for did
He not say, "Come unto me. all ye
that labor and are heavy laden, and I
will give you rest"?
The soothsayer is not always
soothing.
A man's dearest friend Is seldom
the most expensive.
If money talks the miser's cash
must be tongue-tied.
Only a wise man Is competent to
enjoy a competency.
If, as the newspaper reports would
have us believe, all brides are beautiful, where do all the homely married women come from?
