Death List of the Rhodes Opera
House Holocaust
Boyersto'wn, Pa.'", Jan. 16,—The
'death list of the Rhodes opera
house holocaust now reached one
hundred and sixty. This is the
estimate . of - the officials of the
Beading Railway company. Seventy-five are known, to be injured.
The missing list includes one
hundred and thirty-six names. It
is impossible to complete .the list
of the missing, as many occupants
of the theatre were1 from other
towns and there are no relatives
here to irqhlre for them. The fire
following the explosion of the
gasoline tank attached to amoving picture machine being used,
for the production by a children's
company of "The Reformation,"
drew four hundred people, mostly
children, toward.the sole exit of
the theatre, where many perished.
Hundreds are engaged in the
work of .removing the bodies of
the dead. Sixty have been recovered. .»-
Boyerstown, Pa., , Jan.. 17.—

£'il blow which it received' in the
destruction of .. the\Rhodes opera
.kausa v,by.Jira* an'.Monday.,   : this-
thriving little borough today

fact that one-fifteenth of the population was w iped out of existence by. the holocaust. (
" The figures compiled by coroner
Strasser at nightfall, > show there
are 170 dead as a result of the
fire. The list of dead include one
fireman, who lost his life fighting
the fire and of one man,' Jacob
Johnson, who died today •> from
injuries received in the blazing
opera house. Three charred bodies
were recovered from.the ruins of
the buildings and of the 168 bodies that lie in the improvised
morgues, 115 have been either
partially or fully identified by
their sorrowing relatives or
friends. .

Maple Leaf flour Mills Destroyed—loss Over a Million
Kenora, Jan. 16.—The magnificent new mill of the Maple Leaf
Flour Mills Company valued at
over a million dollars, was burned last night. Only the wall is
left standing. It is said the fire
originated by a live wire. The
Maple Leaf mill was one of the
finest "mills'' on the continent and
had a capacity of five thousand
barrels a day. The mill has only
been completed and was a boon to
the' town as' it employed a large
number- of men.
MINERS ACCEPT SCALE
Moyie, Jan. 16,—A vote was
taken by the members , of the
Miners' ' Union here on the question of returning to work at the
wage scale offered recently , after
the recommendation by the court
of. arbitration which sat here and
in Nelson,
The vote was, for accepting the
scale and returning to work, 156
against 85.
»C. P. R. trains No. 1 and 2 between Spokane and Curzon Junction 'are now operating Cafe Par-'
lor cars. Leaves Spokane at 7 a^
m. connecting at Curzon Junction
with No. 6. Returning connects
with the Crow's Nest No.. 5, arriving in Spokane at 7.45 p. m.
The installation of these cars will

Distribution of Pass Coal to be
i      Greatly Increased
Vancouver, B. C.} Jan. 17.—By
February transportation facilities
for marketing the product of the
Crow's Nest Pass coal mining district will be increased by the opening of the Great Northern extension from Fernis to Michel.
The road, which has been under
construction for the last two
years, is 23 miles long. The line
follows Coal Creek from Michel
to Fernie,1 where it connects with
the Hill road. » Practically" the
route of the new line is the same
as followed by the Canadian Pacific,   Coal  Creek being the     only
| outlet from the mines possible for
j a railroad. .,
The constructiosr of the Fernie-
Michel branch has been an expensive piece of1 railroad work averaging, it is estimated, about ?55,'-
000 a mile for the grading and
track. The Great Northern will
be, when the line is'in operation,
an active competitor of the Canadian Pacific for.% coal and
coke of the Crow's Nest Pass Coal
company.

Relief is  generally felt from     the
first few doses.
This prescription, states a well-
j known   authority in   a. Cleveland
i morning paper, forces the cloggud-
i up,  inactive kidnc-ys to  filter and
i strain from the blood the poison-
, 6ua waste matter and uric    acid, j	
' which, causes Rheumatism.   ' j '      ,
j    As Rheumatism is not only the j AMALGAMATED

■ simple  recipe   will  no   doubt     be
J greatly valued by many  sufferers
', here at home, who should at onco
] prsparo  the mixture  to  get    this
i relief. >
It    is    said    that a person who
would take this prescription     re-

even a few times a week, would

UP WRONG TREE"'
Oldest Bank Office in Toronto
'" The Church Street -Branch of the Home Bank of Canada," says a Toronto r
morning paper, '• is the oldest bank eite'in Toronto.   It was hero, in 1854, that tho .
Toronto Savings Bank first opened its doors for business, to become, in 18<8, the
head office of the Home Savings and Loan Company.   In 1905. the operation of
a new charter changed its name to the Home Bank of Canada.   So 18 Church .
Street is,now entering upon tho fifty-fourth consecutive year of its occupancy as
a banking institution. „ ,".,.. v    n
" In 54 > ears a bank premises should see many changes, and its history should
bo enlivened by exeitinjr incident.   Vet 78 Church Street lias had an even, almost •■
placid history.   Mr. Eugene O'Keefc. tho President of..tho Homo Bank of Canada,
and Lieut.-Col.' James Moron; its General Manager, both began their banking-'
careers in this building as junior clerks with the Toronto Savings Bank.
« Only once in those 54 years was there any undue excitement, and thnt was
late one February afternoon, fourteen years ago, when n desperate gang, known
as tho ' Dnlton Imitator*,' made nn attempt to clean out the toller's box. Three
heavily armed men entered the bank, while a fourth stood guard outside tho outer
door Revolvers were pointed at tho heads of tho teller, tho accountant and n
. junior, and. they were commanded to holdup their hands. In spito of threats
made r.t tho point of a revolver, tho teller refused to ;hancl over tho money din-
plaved in his cage, As he wan- entirely caged and roofed in, tho robbers could
not reach him, and while ono of their number was endeavoring to force open tho
door tho accountant dodged his assailant and ran to the telephone. Tho junior
clerk then fearlesslv grappled with his man, unci would havo disarmed him had ho
not boon knocked sonselcss by a blow on the lioad from a revolver butt In tho

It -would be .well to note at this
time that while the greedy, grinding Van Cleaveites are trying to
impress the "poor, innocent rank
and file of the. trade union move-
-mentf^of—the-dishonesty— of—the-
labor        leaders,       that     during
the     recent'   financial   °crash in
the     United      States     no      less
than five, banks and  trusts  company presidents" or managers have
committed suicide as a result;'  of
dishonesty in their bank administration,    and.     six   presidents or
managers' are  under  indictments
for misappropriation,  fraud or a
violation    of   ' the banking laws,
while  not  a  single   international
trade union  official has even had
'the slightest suspicion cast upon
his honesty   or integrity.     '   The
most   impressive    feature of it is
that most of the holy, honest (?)
financiers either dead or under indictments were colleagues and co-
members of Van Cleave, either'in
the" National Manufacturers'  Association or tho Citizens' Alliance,

OUR   NEW   NAME
With, this issue we start the
change ot name to tho "District
Ledger."
As explained in our issue of the
4th o£ January, the reason for
changing the name' is because pf
' the increase. o£ our circulation
outside of Fernie. The "District
Ledger" is the official organ of
the U.. M. W. of A. District No.

While changing the name of our
paper, we are not changing the
"policy in any,way, except that we
will improve' it as we go along.
The news of the City, will be
given more attention, while the
news of the District will be increased. To aid us in this way
we look to the members of the TJ.
M. W. of A. to .send us items of
interest" to the ca/ase from time.
to time. We are about to spend
a few thousand dollars on an improved plant, and this will enable
us to get.out a better looking
paper, more news, and get it out
more promptly. We will also be
in a better position to handle job
work with ' promptness, - and
should receive same from all the
Secretaries ' of the Locals of the
District.

GROWTH   OF   SOCIALISM
The growth of Socialist sentiment in Western Canada is remarkable, travel in the train, go
into-the hotels, listen to the sermons preached from the pulpit,
and you can hear Socialism being
"talked of by rich and poor.
In the province of Alberta a
large number of settlers have
come from the United States who
are imbued with Socialist ideas.
We happened recently to meet
with two homesteaders from the
Athabacca Eiver in the far north
who brought the news of a Socialist meeting of 32 persons being
held one Sunday, this fall, at the
banks of the Athabacca Eiver
some 200 "miles north of Edmonton. It is plainly evident that
Socialism in Canada is not confined to the Coal Minors. Th .<;•
sent hard time are making many
people study Socialism as a
means of, preventing a recurrence

WILL ORGANIZE
B. C Branch of Institute of
Mining Engineers
iatK,
,1,
1908.
Yesterday, was organized in this
city a western branch of the Canadian Institute of Mining Engineers. There is at present a membership-in the west of about 150
and it is thought that with vte
localizing of the, institution that
this membership will be easily increased within the year ro 300
members. There was little -lone ot
the meeting of yesterday beyond
the formal organization. The fu'l-
er organization, as to details,
was left, over for today. There
will be morning and afternoon
sessions and in the evening the
many visiting members and their
wives will be entertained at a
dance at the Hume hotel.
Frederic Keffer, of Greenwood,
taking the chair, .snd A. H.
Gracey, of the Eva mine, being
appointed secretary for the meeting, a roll call of those present
was taken. These were: -T. C. Haas
A.    B. W. Hodges, S.  S. Fowler,
I F. Keffer, E. Jacobs, J. J. Campbell,, L. Hill, A."c. Garde, E. C.
Browne-Cave, W. A. Davidson, A.

C. T. Mitchell, W. B. Bishop, S.
G. Blaylock, J. Buchanan, E. W.
Widdowson, and B. ,'A. Isaac.
There were others present, teveral
of whom will be members of the
institute. Amongst these-were: L. '
Pratt, A. D. Wheeler, E. F. Mil-
tenberger, J. A.- Whittiir and F.
Fletcher.
" Frederic Keffer, as ^jesrdentf
made an address in which lie stat-
made an address in which he seated the objects of the meeting, including the formation of a western branch of the institute.
It was moved byS. S. Fbwlcr,
and_seconded-by—G P.—H.'Il,—taat-
'•'we now constitute ourselves a
western beanch of the Canadian
Mining institute.'' ,Tn;s, was
carried.
The next order of business was
the election of permanent officers,
with the following result: President, A. B. W.- Hodges; secretary,
E. Jacobs; executive council, . P.
S. Couldre'y, R. H. Stewart, L.
Hill, 0. E. S. Whiteside, W. M.
Brewer, J, C. Haas, E. C.    Mus-1
j grave, J. McEvoy and S. G. Blay-
jlock.
j    While  the scrutineers were     ex-
| amining the ballot papers, E.
Jacobs stated that the provincial
mineralogist had requested him
to express his regret that his official duties just now prevented
him     from leaving Victoria,    so
that he was unable to attend the
meeting.
A. B. W. Hodges then took, the
era! ammendments   to   the  Mines'
o
Regulation Act. \ It was suggested that the mine inspector should
visit,all coal mines in his district
at least, once in every six weeks,
and should make a written report
of the condition of that mine, the
same to be posted at the mine
mouth. This was recommended
in the report of the Coal Commission.
Another request made was that
in every mine where at least ten
men were employed there should
be a regularly equipped wash
house.
Another recommendation of the
Coal Commission was endorsed by
the labor men, who asked that escape . shafts in coal mines should
bo a proper distance from th,e
main shaft, 100 or 150 feet was
suggested.
The government we're asked to
make it a punishable offence for a
member of the mine committee to
be discriminated against by their : engineers for the honor done him,
employers. ; ji„ eai&.

informal discussion as to the best
method of carrying on the newly
formed branch of the institute.
P..Keffer thought it would be
well'to have little local branches
of the institute in the different
mining centres, to meet every
month or so!"    ' r'
S. S. Fowler thought that there
would be hardly a sufficient membership present in any one of
these centres, with the possible
exception of the Boundary, to
make such meetings interesting.
The speaker ' thought that thete
should be quarterly or semi-annual meetings. This led to some
discussion' and finally the general
opinion seemed to be that the
meetings of the western branch of
the institute should be thrice
yearly. -
Mr. Keffer agreed with Mr. Fowler that the oftener meetings
could be held the better the members could get together.
J, C. Haas suggested the reading of papers at such meetings,
but thought the procedure of the
meetings should be, as far as possible, informal. >
T. Kiddle agreed as to the non-
formality of the meetings .and
thought that'meetings three times
a year would be' ample.
E. Jacobs called attention to
the fact that the general meeting
of the institute would be held this"
year in Ottawa, in March next;
and that it would be in order for
the western branch" to prepare for
j that ... annual meeting anything
that the.west particularly thought'
desirable for discussion. The
speaker went on to give the bylaws of the institute as to membership and associate membership.
Mr. Jacobs then remarked: "In
view of the fact that'the depart-'
ment of mines is now organized,
it would be' politic for us to
draft a resolution congratulating
the Dominion Government upon
its establishment and expressing
appreciation of the useful- work
done in the west by the Geological Survey and; as well, with reference' to   the  statistics  gathered
TtHW
by K. BTHedley throughout u—the
province." Mr. Jacobs also called attention to the fact-that it
had been- said that the Canadian
mint could not use Canadian
metal for its work, inasmuch as
there was no refinery for certain
metals within the Dominion. This
was not the case, inasmuch as
there was such a refinery at Trail.
This matter should be taken up
i by the institute.
The secretary was instructed to
prepare.a resolution along these
lines. ,
The meeting then adjourned at 5
o'clock, to meet this morning at
11 o'clock and again at 2 o'clock.
S, S. Fowler, on behalf of the
Nelson members, tendered an invitation to the members to be present at a dance this evening in
the Hume hotel.—Nelson News,

Soveral complaints have been
received at this offtco about the

from the mines. The men claim
that they have often had to wait

Attention Is called to the Ad. of
the British Canadian Wood &
Pulp Co., on page 7, This is a
new industry that has been formed among representative men of
Vancouver, for tbs manufacture
of newspape, building, drug store
fibre, aud wrapping papers. A
new feature about this cumpaay
is that instead of using uniform
cut wood, they use the refuse
from mills, such as sawdust, slabs
discarded shingle bolts, etc.    .
and I know all the gentlemen present aro interested enough to endorse my sentiments. But an endeavor should be made to increase
the membership as ?oon as possible. It takes co-operation to
make a success of this branch.
Tho whole ,, reason of tho forma-
.tlon.'of "the western branch is that
the busy membors out west cannot attend the meetings of the institute held in the oast.
''I think we should have a committee of threo appointed''to look

at Brenifeit Sask., last week
Senator Watson Managing Director . of the company told Galvin he
would allow- no union at his mine
nor would he allow any union

SOCIALISTS TO MAKE FIGHT
The third meeting of the socialist club, recently organized in Edmonton, was held ,in the Trades
and Labor' chamber last evening.
The principal address was by Mr.
Franlc Sherman, President of District Association No. 18, the defeated socialist candidate at Pinch
er Creek in last local election, and
which he claimed cost the' Liberal
party §10,000. He made a very
moderate, and in the view „oi
many present, a logical and forceful • speech. Capital was given
the blame for all the ills the laboring man is at present undergo1-
ing, and the socialist propaganda
is to have all the credit for the
bliss that awaits him in tho future. He asked tho support of
the laboring man for the Socialist candidate on tho ground that
both the othor parties were tho
samo "thinamen." He was opposed to strikes, as the strikers always loso, and the employers always reap the benefit. Capital
feared socialism more than labor
unionim. Labor will never be
satisfied until in possession and
control of the means of production by which it lives. In social'
iBm only is the hope of a brigTit
or and better condition for the
workingman than now obtains.
Only by organization can this
hopo be realized, Ho was opposed
to government ownorship because
it only changed masters and loit
tho wage earner where he was. It
was tho intention of th* socialist
party to put men in the field end
make a rod hot fight (appliui*).
Tho farmers, he declared, were
largely Socialists, and could be

At two mass meetings of Coleman Miners Union 2633 TJ. T&. W.
of America the following' resolutions  carried unanimously.
Whereas, the vocation of coal
mining is known to be hazardous calling as witness the four
terrible disasters which recently
occurred in the United States, not
to recall the immense loss of life
in Fernie a few years ago and in
Coleman last April when our beloved brothers were snuffed out
like a candle, and,
Whereas, accidents are continually occuring which maim tho
workers who follow coal, mining,
and serve to incapacitate them
for thereafter earning a living,
and
Whereas many of these workers
have wives and families dependant on them who are thus left
helpless and without an additional charge ■ on their hand, and
Whereas, the unhealthiness of
the occupation,is beyond question;
the low lights with which we are
compelled to work, involving a
strain that- is injurious to the
eyes, the confinement which impairs vitality, and the unseen
dangers that menace, therefore
Be it resolved, that we the members of Coleman Local 2633, U.
M. W. of America, in mass meeting assembled, demand of the
Provincial Parliament that they
take cognizance of these conditions and their attendant hard
ships, and mete out a small measure of justice to the workers in
this most important industry of
the Province by passing at the
next session of Parliament an
eight hour Bank to Bank law
identical with the law now in
force in British Columbia, and a
Compensation Act along the lines
adopted by the Imperial Parliament, and '
, Be it resolved iurther, that cop-
-ies-of-this-resolution-be-forwarded.

West.
Whereas, under the present Mines Inspectors' Act the inspector
after examination of mines records his findings in a book provided for the purpose in. the Company's office. .This arrangement
prevents, to a very great extent,
the mine workers from being conversant with same, and
Whereas, under the existing law
the visit of the mine Inspector
are times optional with him,
therefore
Be it resolved that we the members of Coleman, Local '2633, U.
M. W. of America, in mass meeting assembled, urge upon the
Provincial Parliament the necessity of amending the Mine Inspectors' , Act,. so that mine inspec-
shall be compelled to visit each
mine in his District at least once
every six weeks, and post his report at the mine mouth, in the
interest of .the workers employed
therein,   and <,
Be it further resolved that copies of this resolution be forwarded to Hon. Premier Rutherford,

Whereas, at present there is no
law providing that miners, 'shall
receive dynamite or patent powders in a condition fit to use' in
their working places, and
Whereas, there have been many
accidents owing to".their being
compelled under present conditions to , thaw their own powder,
Be it resolved that we the members of Coleman Local 2633, U.
M.-of America, in mass'' meeting assembled draw this to the
attention of the Provincial Gov7
eminent, that'they may'see the
necessity of enacting a law compelling mine operators to provide
a place suitable for the storing
and preparing of powder to be used where the miners may receive
it- for use .'when necessary,    and
Be' it further resolved that copies of this resolution be forwarded
to Hon. Premier' Rutherford, Hon.
John F. Mercellus, the Alberta
Executive Trades and Labor Council, the District Board, the Fernie

SEHUNG COAL
Prospects Point to the Development of fine on Peninsula"
The development ot the coal-
deposits at North. Saanich' within
twenty miles oi t the city ot Victoria still goos' on apace. It is
reported that a seam three feet
thick has been discovered and the
prospectors are still going" deeper.
Captain Bissett, who has bonded a large part of tho north end
of; the peninsula, it is -understood'
has interested-capitalists in the
scheme, and it is hot at,all 'improbable that big developments
will result in the near future.
Should coal in paying quantities
be found right on the confines of
the city, as that is, it would
mean cheaper fuel ,,for the manufacturing industries as well as for
the residents and also a largo
weekly payroll, a large part of
which would be bound to come.to
that district.
It has been known ~ for, a long
tim6 that coal in small or large
quantities exist*, fi in that part
of the island .but it' was not
-known whechcr the seams would
be sufficiently thick and of the
right quality to make it worth
while working it. The test that
is now being made will settle
that question and the first reports
that have been received seem to
indicate that the most favorable
conditions exist.
' Not only will the city of Victoria benefit if the result of . the
work now. being conducted is successful, but the whole district will
be benefitted, and it will be a very
material financial gain to those
whose property has been included
in the0 deal which is contemplated.

from the river, varying from one
to. three miles and with a- view to
determining the most advantageous location for the extensive
plant of the company, a series of
drill holes have been sunk .to ascertain the depth' at which the seam
exists at various points and the
nature of the coal at such points.

is likely that coal cutting machines will be employed extensively in the Royal Collieries when
mining on a large scale is undertaken.
L0CM0T0R ATAXIA CORED
BY DR. WIUIAMS' PINK PUIS
Read Strong Testimony of a Man Who was Helpless for Years
and Whom HosPital Doctors Said was Incurable.'
Locomotor ataxia its, a d.&easo
of the spinal cord, Vnaractoiizod
by peculiar disturbances oi the,
gait, and difficulty in governing
the motion of tho legs. As the
disease progresses there is a
total inability to walk. One of
the earliest signs is a tired feeling particularly noted in the
kheee and ankles. Often a numb
feeling 1b associated with it. As
the disease is of slow growth,
the disease is of slow growth,
some cases covering a period of
years, the increase and intensity
of the symptoms is not noticed,
but its progress is constant and
gradually approaches a total
lack of feeling in the legs, causing
a wobbling gait and entire in*
ability to govern the steps. As
it grows the patient loses con*
trot over the bowels and water.
A further symptom ia the sensa*
tlon of a pressure at the waist,
as the upper parts of the Bpinol
cord becomes affected.
Locomotor ataxia is stubborn
in yielding to treatment and be*
fore the discovery of Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills was considered incur*
able. It has been fully demon*
strated, however, that this disease con bo cured by Dr. Wil*
Huns' Pinh Tills for Palo People,
The length of treatment required depends upon the stage at
which it is commenced. It is dan*
nf*«r the presence of the disease
is recognised, although this medicine has wrought cures in many
rases of long standing.
We give the following statement
of Mr. Henry Furier, a well
V-»*>***n Trident of Delta, Ont., in
firoof of the claim that Dr. Wil*
iaras' Pink Pills will cure this
most dreaded of diseases;' Mr.
Purser says: "I am deeply grate*
- ful that X am able to write you
and let you know the great benefit X have derived from the use of
Dr. William*' Tlnk Pills. Some
years ago while working on the
firand    Trunk Hallway, I injured
may be surrounded by an air-tight'
case,, provided with a tube open-'
ed or shut at will by a mercury'
valve i operated by an electro--
magnet controlled from "the :"pb-'
serviing "' station., This tube',
would be opened ' for, say,."five
minutes., During that time ihe.ex*,;
ternal gases would diffuse , perfectly through the tube into,,the
case, but both moisture and;car-,
bonic acid, would immediately be
obserbed by caustic potassa placed in D\ • The tube would-then
.be_elosed,_and_rneasurernents_,tak3
en, pure marsh gas being" the
standard. These tests,would be
made« as often as desired, ,, the
observer having full control,]:J of
the valves on all the instruments
and operating all on cne circuit.
While   a   separate     circuit)71" is
shown for the right-hand or left- j
hand helices, it is practicable, by i,
a simple device arranged by   the f
inventor,  to   operate  either helix:
at will from the.observing'station
and yet use but a single circuit.
With bulbs of 300 cubic inches
capacity, a balance weighing to
one-tenth of a grain will give the
percentage of- marsh gas to one-,
third of one per cent, The bulbs
weigh six ounces. This weight
may bo lessened S6 grains by filling them with,;pure hydrogen.
A reading to one-third of one per
cent is close enough in practice,
Tho instrument is especially designed for use in gbaves, where
large accumulations of the gas
are more liable to form. A decrease in atmospheric pressure
forces it out in the workings,
where it may be fired by a shot,
a dofective lnmp, or other causes.
It. having been settled that the
explosions supposed to be wholly
due to coal dust depend on marsh
gas in conjunction with'the'dust,
the necessity for close watch upon even small percentages is obvious.
As marsh.gas spreads with tolerable rapidity, one instrument
will guard a considerable area,
especially in a go*t where ventilation is neglected.

grew worse and I was taken to
the hospital at Brockville. The
treatment there seemed to help me
and after some weeks I roturned
to work. I was only at work a
few days when the trouble returned worse than before. Again I
went to the hospital, blisters
were applied to my spine, , but
without avail. The doctors told
me I had locomotor ataxia, and
that there was no help for me, as
I would never be able to use my
legs again.     I returned home in
the belief that X would always be
a helpless cripple, and that death
only could bring* relief,     I |-rad*
uatly got worse and worse. There
was absolutely no feeling in my
legs, X lost control of both bowels
and. bladder,    and suffered great
torture     from    a   girdling pain
about the v/altit. X was in fact  a
complete  wreck and could scarce*

asked   me if I had ever tried   Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills, and on   juy
saying   no, he got   me a supply
and X began to uso them.    It was
quite a while before I found any
benefit, but Anally relief began to
come. The pains about the waist
ceased. X slept better and my (vp*
