fernie Hole! Block the Scene of
Conflagration—Fernie Drug

, A -fere which but for the extremely prompt response of the brigade;
and'rafter their arrival a valiant'
and.-,well: directed' flgjiit with the
flames, would have resulted in the
entire demolition .of the hotel Fernie', one ' of;our. best buildings,
started , at, about 2.45 a.m. on
Thursday morning. How the fire
originated is a mystery and ,one
which the' fire ,chief is investigating very" rigidly, as* there were
rumors afloat of incendiarism. The
fire started at the rear of the-Fernie and instantaneously^seemed to
run .right up the walls at three
corners  of the new addition.
' The alarm was given hurriedly
and all the guests Quickly aroused
by the management who did all
that. was necessary to get their
guests dressed and ready to move
out in case it was not got under
control. The stairs and hallways
were sooned lined with people hurrying out from the smoke.
-Two minutes from receiving the
] alarm' the firemen were ' on the
spot and .had two' well' directed
streams playing on the fire, which
soon-' put it .under control.
, Tha-loss to' the hotel' Fernie will
be about $400 which is-.covered by
insurance. The Fernie. Drug store
were the heaviest losers as most
of their large stock 0was damaged'
'by smoke • and water. They esti-

The revision court was held on
Monday at the court house at 10
o'clock, Magistrate Whimster pro-
siding. There were 700 names to
be added to tho list.
There were 175 persons objected
to, 85 taken off and 87 put back,
Mr. L. P. Eckstein acted as solicitor for the Socialist party who
were the principal objectors, He
said that his clients had no wish
to strike any person off the lists
who were ontitlod to voto but
simply to purge tho lists.
Mr. W. K. lloss, M.P.P., Fernio
riding, said he was as much inter,
estod as anyone in getting a clean
list, The second person to whom
objection was made was Thomas
Allan who Mr. Ross said worked
at the Fort Steele brewory, and
who voted Socialist. He would
not mind if Allan was struck off,
A large number of persons to
whom objection had been taken
wore persons 11011 resident in the
riding but wore living at Vancouver, Victoria and such places, Mr,
"Eckstein said he could not see
how a man who had left the district and who took no interest or
part in the affairs of the town
could como here and voto. Mr.
Boss said that the act stated that
where a person had not moved out
of the province he was entitled to
veitu TTc r*»f»v**i»r1 to -.iir »C,nie.
man friends," who came up and
voted ■Socialist. flU. i.'ck»tein said
he was not so sure of that, as he
had affidavits in his office that
large sums of money had been
paid the ''Coleman friends," Mr,
"Ross wanted to know who had
paid them, but Mr, Kckstein said
thai, he did not want to go into
that question as the election was
over. Boss also wanted to know
why the Socialists did not object
to Mr. F, H. Sherman being retained on the list as they knew be
was   non-r«oid«nt in the district.
After the list furnished by the
SopUltsts had b«*en disposed of
the objection to Mr, W. W. Tuttle
was dealt with. Mr. Tuttle pro*
dueed a naturalieatlon paper dated at Maeleod, Southern, Alta,
tftth June, 180fl. This closed the
buttntts. The sitting occupied one
hour.

CASE
•<jp*
THE LEMIEUX ACT
Strathcona Coal Company Sued
by-ffi^Ioym for Breach
of Contract
, One of the first cases to be tried
in the Alberta courts involving* tho
Industrial Disputes Act, known as
the Lemieux act,, came up for
hearing in the district court yesterday before his honor Judge H.
C, Taylor. This watt the case, of
21 miners against the Strathcona
Coal Company for a breach of. a
contract made, under the. Lemieux
act.* The-company entered into a
new contract for a smaller' wage
■with -three of the miners without
complying with .the provisions of
the act. The judge held that .the
three men who signed this new
contract: must abide by it, but the
agreement was not binding on the
other; miners. The United ' Mine
Workers of America have taken up
the question and will appeal from
the decision of the judge with respect to the three men. It is understood that they will also enter
an action in" the supreme court
against the Strathcona Coal Company for $20,000 damages for violation of the ,' Lemieux act and
breach of contract."'' H. A. Mackie
appeared for plaintiffs and J. R.
Lavell, of Strathcona, for the.defendant company.   .
According to the evidence given
at the trial the Strathcona Coal
Co." entered' into ,an agreement to
pay the miners'33 1-3 per car for
all coal mined. This agr-eeinent
was entered into' under the terms
, of the .Lemieux act respecting the
agreements of employers ' with
workmen and was signed by the
dulyrauth"brised~and,-reeognised-uf----
ficers of the miners' local union
and was assented to by District 18
of   the   United  Mine  Workers   >  of
" America. After working for some
time on1 this agreement the company, under threats of closing the
mine persuaded three of the'miners, . Hammond,      Kingsley,    "and
' Smith to sign a new agreement
whereby they were' to wovk for 528
cents a car. ,The 30 days' notice
of a change of agreement provided
■ for by the Lemieux, act was not
complied with nor was the agreement signed by the authorised officers of the Miners' union.. The'
United  Mine Workers   of  America
• protested and asked that a concil-
, iation board be appointed to ad-
, just the matter. Tho company refused, so rather than striko the
miners brought action-against the
company through the court, tho
miners claiming the " balanco of
.wages duo them to make up ttie
difference between tho old and new
rate of wages,
Tho defendant company claimed
that tho agreement entered into
by Hammond, Kingsley and1 Smith
was for all the minors and that
the men should abido by it. They
accordingly paid into court a sum
equal    to tho. amount oarnod by
, the men up to 88c per car,
; After ..hearing the 'evidence Judge
Taylor 'held that the new. agreement^ made,by Hammond, Kings-
ley and Smith,* was binding on
themselves, and" that they should
receive only. 28c per car. He decided, however, that this new
agreement was not binding on the
rest, of ..the miners. There ..was no
doubt that the committee had ex-
lceeded their authority in^maHrig
the agreement for 28c, so he gave
judgment for the remainder of the
plaintiffs for 33 l-3c per, car.
H. MacKie, counsel for the
plaintiffs, announced that they
would appeal against the judgment of the court in the case of
Hammond, Kingsley and Smith,
on the ground that the new agreement was not any more binding
on them than on the other miners
as they were still members of the
union and .had .no. power as such,
to make a new agreement for
themselves.
It is understood that District 18
of ' the United Mine Workers of
America will enter, an action in
the supreme court against the
Strathcona Coal * Company ; for
violation of the Lemieux act and
breach     of     contract.—Edmonton

CHILD'S SEVERE BURNS
, Healed by,Zam-Buk.
The little girl of Mrs. Lewis
Best of Catlisle P.O.,,recently fell
against the stove and burned her
forehead very badly. Mrs. Best
says: "The burn was about the
Jbize of a fifty cent piece and was
"near the bone. -It made my little
girl's eye swell till it almostshut,
and then she'got cold in it. It
began to run matter very badly,
and I could not stop It,"although,
I' bathed it good every night and'
morning. At last I sent for some
Zam-Buk which soon stopped the
matteration and 'very quickly it,,
healed the wound, I have never
seen a burn heal so quickly, and I
am sure Zam-Buk has no equal
for curing cuts, or burns, and I
hhall always keep a box on hand
in caso of emergency."
Every home needs Zam-Buk! All
diseases of the skin quickly yield
to it. It is also an excellent remedy for piles, blind or bleeding,
rheumatism, eto. All druggists
and stores 50 cents a box, or post
paid from the Zam-Buk Co,, Toronto.

LUMBER PRICES
Nelson,-B;  C, April, 30—At"    a
meeting    of the British oColumbia
lumbermen,,  both from the coast,
and  the  mountains,  held' here ■ it
was decided to .adhere to ,the, lumber and shingle .price lists now' in
force -and delay the usuali spring
raise' in the -schedule until later in
.May^heri^the^^^
crop   in-the   northwest provinces
will be more assured.   It was after
considerable argument that;   this
course, was     decided'  upon, as a
niimber of-holders of extensive limits    laid     great   stress   upon the
marked increase  in the  lvalue    of
British-  Columbia  stumpago.'during .,the„past-yoar,. due. to the'British Columbia government's action
in withdrawing staking privileges
last     December;    to the^ increased
cost of present logging, the lumber
so convenient to the water    being
logged so extensively last season,
and also the government's action
iri  withdrawing  hand  logging  licenses..'    Should  the  G.T.P.     contractors continue   to hire men in
such great numbers as thoy    are
now'doing,'wages.are more apt to
increase  than   otherwise.   In  view
of these facts, these license holders
considered that as a due protection to  thoir interests the-prices
should     be made  stiffer  and  tho
sooner    the  better.     However  in
view of tho present slackness in all
kinds of business "the raise     has
been temporarily postponed,

SATURDAY,  MAY 9TH,. 1908.
NOW  WORKERS,   USE  YOUR  VOTES
LAW AND THE WORKER
During last March when the industrial      disputes    investigation
act was rushed through the Dominion house it appeared to us
that its principal purpose was to
head off the then impending coal
\strike in the Pass.
We are all cognizant of the methods resorted to at Calgary during the joint convention to block
proceedings   until   the    act    was
PaSSed' . -    1 4.        4,1.        .,
Some" of us were afraid at that
time that the act boded no good
for the worker. Our fears now
seem to be justified. One - trade
union official has been convicted
under -.this act; James McGuire,
president, of Cobalt miners union
for inciting men to strike, the
part invoked being section 60, the
penalty imposed half the maxi-
rnum,' $500 or six momths hard
labor. The case was appealed. It
was sustained in a modified forro.o
We have yet to hear of ah employer 'being convicted under the
act. Yet it seems to us that several have been goiilty of its infringement.
When, during., the flurry in metals, the smelters closed down and
refused to reopen unless the'men
accepted a reduction, they were
guilty of a graver offence, under
this act than McGuire was. Then
we had the idiotic order. of ,-, the
Crow's Nest Pass Coal Co., management that a miner must wait
, until he received permission before
he could put up;timber, not only
" a violation of this act, but a vio-L
lation of common sense and practical mining and the Provincial
mining act. -
Maixh  on, ttarthon. all hearts   re-solved on Vic- - - to-if, or death'.
United  at  the  Polls we * must 'stand next  Polling Day /
Co. attempted to introduce some,
of the Crow's Nest Pass Coal Co's^
duplicity contrary to th© provi-,
sions of. the ,act, but tbe,prompt
action of the miners, put a stop
to such proceedings.
■And what about No.' 9 mine at
Coal Creek?
- Let us take a look at the act,
sec. 56: It shall be unlawful for
any employer to declare. or cause
a lockout or for any. employe to
go on strike on account of any
dispute prior to or during a re*
ference of, such to a board of con-
dilation, -and investigation, under
the provisions of this act, sec. 57
—omplojyers and employees shall
give at least thirty days notice of
an intended change affecting conditions of employment with respect to wages and hours;' sec. 58,
any employer declaring or causing a lockout contrary to the provisions of this act shall be liable
to a fine of not less than oho
hundred dbllars nor moire \htxn
one thousand dollars, for , each
day or part of a day that such
lockout exists,
Now let us see what a lockout
means under this act. Sec. 2, article 5: Lockout (without limiting
the nature of its meaning) means
a closing of a place of employment or a suspension of work, or
a refusal by an employer to continue to employ any numbor of
his employees in consequence of a
dispute, done with a view to compelling his employees, or to aid
anothor employer in compelling
his employees to accept terms of
Agreement, So Bays tho law, How
stands the , Coal Co, in regard
thereto?
Tho management decidod to
change tho system of working in
No. 0 mine, employing the pillar
nnd stall in lieu of the long wall
system heretofore employed. The
men Jn narrow work places were
paid a day! wage of throe ■djoVUri-),
and coercive intimidating methodB
usod to force the men to turn out
a large tonnage,
This cowardly line of action not
having its desired result, the mine
was closed down ostensibly because    it could not be made to
pay.
The management however, eon*
tinued negotiation! at to fixing a
price. The men made an offer to
ret the coal for 75e per ton and
p2.B0 a yard cutting price on narrow work. The company replied
that 00c and 91.60 was all they
would pay. It ii therefore obvious
that the management are desirous
to operate No, 0 mine elie    why
rVi**.*iir'    ♦*-,».»•    4.0**.    *.    ***J*f. ft *.*
they them violating the see. Bfl
which expressly forbids a lockout?
Are No. 0 men locked out accord*
Ing to the  meanine of this act?
In our humble opinion a definite
statement to that effect could
•not wirIw it  nm* Ti1n<*ii»r.
Apart from the above proceeding
officials of the company hav* told
men asking for employment that
No. 0. mine is ready to be opened whenever they «ay the word.
And saying the word means ac*
opting 60e per ton and no dead
work In rooms, & price not suflfi*
cient to maintain a worker in it*
cent comfort in this' country. It
appears to us that indirectly, and
perhaps it could be proved directly
too, although according , to the
act it is not essential,_the coal
■c^mpany~h^ver.^
employment "with a view to compelling 4.their- employees to - accept
terms of employment." What are
we going to do about it?
REGARDING OUR CHILDREN
The cases of youthful depravity
which . were ^.bcou-jlat ..out at. the
trial of a. number of small boys
for stealing from the basement of
the Waldorf hotel, shows to what
an extent the youthful offenders
have gone.
Magistrate Whimster very wisely
let the, self admitted young, criminals go on suspended sentence,
after giving them a real -, good
straight talking to. We think,
however, if he had also ordered
their parents to give them a right
good, old fashioned hiding it
would have had a little more lasting effect on the memories of the
boys, We were glad' to see the
boys released on suspended sentence, not because they did not
deserve punishment, but because
we think that it'is not to the best
interests of a boy's future to start
him off with a reformatory train*
ing, where ho is bound to meet
with boys who are worso than him-
solf and will naturally follow
that style quicker than any other.
As regards to who is responsible
for the disgraceful condition of
the youngsters we certainly affirm
that tho parents aro. We consider
that the trouble lies more with
tho fathom than anyone else. If
there, is a selfish creature on earth
it is a man. Most men seem to
consider their duty is done when
thoy have provided tho money necessary for the keen of his family-
they consider their home practically in the light of a boarding
house, and confine themselves to
a nowspapor as soon as supper iv
over.   Their child comes in to tell
him-- of -their childish • joys or sorrows and instead of laying,down
their paper and paying attention
to the child,"the father will hurry,
the children off out of his way.
Tne^Tihiiaren-areTnaturally^r^the-
keenest of critics .and feel hurt at
the non-attention!of their father
atnd '.watn^'ir somewhere- else for
sympathy.     - ■  -.,
If on the other hand the fathers
would make their children more
their companions, and show some
interest in the plays and help to
supply them with games and amusements inside their ov/n , homes
and yards, less children would'.-be
up for .petty crimes, and later on
less older criminals would appear
in the prisons.
It is maybe hard to admit, but
in nine cases out of ten it is the
iather who* is the criminal, for he
neglects his offspring. When the
boy is arrested* and placed in the
dock for some petty offenco, who
do you find there to plead for
him? In nine cases out of ten it
is the mother who appears, and
tearfully pleads for her wayward
boy- The father is seldom willing
to go, and does not like to lay off
and lose Lis pay.
The children should not be air
lowed out on tho streets to play
at all. If they wish companions
thoy should be encouraged to
bring their companions to their
house or inside,their own premises
and visa versa.
The children of to-day that wo
meet on tho streets right here in
Fernie, as well as other places,
aro cheoky and boisterous In the
extreme, and in some cases that
we can relate, when complaints
havo been mado to the parents,
thoy said: "Oh, my.boy would not
do that, he is brought up properly," And we venture to say that
they did not know where the child
was for one hour during the day.
This is a very serious question
and means more than some people
imagine to the future generation,
as anyone'who thinks on the mat*
ter can see the deteriorating influences of children running wildly
on the streets.

Showing*; front of Hall when completed
We print here two cuts. reproduced from the plans.' j
The ' hall will be an' up-to-date
building in every; particular,"and
add greatly to the appearance of
our city."   '    • '  '■*-"
It is being built by the Glad-
Btone Local No. 2314, U.M.W. of
A.- and is a tribute to their members. Besides the hall 'for the
miners,' and the reading.rooms,
billiard hall and .two stores, the
opera house with a seating cap-T
acity of 800 will be a great boon
The  size   of  the, building _ in  all | opera house will be lighted by a
will   ^be   60x114 feet,  two stories,
containing two ■ stores 31x45,' with
to the citizens - of Fernie.
The, building is being built    of
brick, with a concrete foundation,
,, and built by day labor, union help
i\ and* under the careful supervision
of Mr. T. Chippendale,     who     is*
looking  after the  entire  job     in
,  conjunction    with     the   "building
■ committee, ■ of which T.   Biggs  is
the secretary. •'
The building will cost $35,000,
,. and will be finished in the latest
* and most up-to-date style.     Each
floor will have all sanitary     arrangements. '!
large s cellars. "A , crush, lobby entrance, to the theatre will be 16
feet wide, and run right to the
theatre door, with, the box office
on one side.- The- theatre will, be
at the rear ' of" the stores on "the
ground floor and will be 58x59
feet, .with a seating" capacity in
thie orchestra pit or, main hall of
592, and a gallery to hold 228.
There will be two large boxes at
either sideJ on level," with gallery."
the ladies and g.ents ' dressing,
rooms, with storage rooms "for
trunks will be under the stage in
basement. - ■
-.' The stage proscenium will be
17-feet high and"25-feet- wide and
the stage proper. 25x50. Height
of stage  in rear for'' scenery    35
feet.-' " Li-'
,Under the 'opera,rhouse will be a
large billiard room.     "
Two' light wells "will" be on each
side at the division between the
stores and opera house and    ' the
huge dome in the centre.  -
Tfhe exits -have been carefully
thought out and consist of the
main crush lobby leading directly onto the Street, two leading
from the-gallery to the lane at
the rear, and a large door in the
middle  of the  stage,
'. A" smaller hall for-the miners
and other unions,' etc./size 21x42
will be over the store on the left
side.. This u hall will have an ante
room 10x14 and a reception room
To all wage earners:^
The capitalist press and steamship companies, in order to further exploit the, ' working class,
will spread,* and are now spreading
false reports as to the conditions
at present existing - in' this county-' " "--..■/  ■   '  " ~,
- They desire to ,rl6od Seward peninsula" with unemployed „ working
"men in order that} they^ may reduce wages, winter and summer,
below outside prices, and are endeavoring to show that work will
be plentiful and wages high this
coming season. Employment
sharks in the States are likewise
circulating such reports.
As a matter of fact prospects
were never worse and conditions
here are an. exact counterpart of
those outside. But little money
has been in circulation since last
December; the banks have issued
clearing house script which is used
instead, of United States currency;
no important discoveries , have,
been made this winter, while some
of the largest mines' employing the
greatest number of men have been
worked out.- Miners and prospect-,
ors returning daily from .other
diggings report nothing doing and
thus, swelling1 tlie army of unemployed, , which consists of at least
seventy-five per cent, of the laboring population.'     "      ■,*--*--
The Western Federation of Miners by thoroughly organising the
camp and strictly enforcing the
closed shop, have been thus far
partially able,lto "maintain the
winter scale of wages.
The employers and • transportation companies, knowing these
facts, are trying to allure workers
here, as Has been stated, to so reduce -wages as to compel them to
work for what in reality amounts
to their board. To prevent such a
calamity to the working class the'
Western Federation of Miners
warns all working - men „to keep
away from this country during
the,coming summer.

Lethbridge Man Murders Woman
and Commits Suicide.
DAILY CANADIAN ENDS
Nelson's Evening Paper, Goes
out of Business.
Lethbridge, Altai, May 5—A horrible crime "was committed here at
11.30   ..Saturday    morning    when
Melia   Zagaly,  a   Servian miner,
shot Mrs. Mike Barcedi, an Italian
-woman, on thero'ad between    the
town and the mine.   He shot   her
three   times   ,and   then   cut    her
throat, severing the,,jugular 'vein.
He then shot himself three times.
■The man used to board with the
woman and had given her money
to keep for him.   She refused     to
give it back when he asked for it
on the road.   The woman's    nine
year old boy was with her     and
had the money.   The woman    had
eight,   children   and her husband
works in the mine and is; very respectable.     The   murderer     came
here a few months ago and     was
engineern on the screen engine.

In its issue' on Saturday , the
Daily Canadian, one of: the evening papers pjublitiried in Nelson,
announces that-it retires from
the journalistic field. Editorially
the Daily" Canadian says:
"With this issue the Daily Can-
aldia^t cdases .publication as a
newspaper. A small, issue will
be printed next week for. outside
circulation to fulfil certain legal
contracts, but as a newspaper
to-day's is the last issue.     .
The Daily Canadian has now
for nearly two years, served,the
people of Nelson.and vicinity as
a medium of news and fair comment. It was established in^ protest against what seemed to its
founders unfair _ and misleading
reports of political events. As
the danger of such reports is unlikely to.'recur the necessity for
the publication of this'paper no
longer  exists.
The, Daily Canadian has aimed
constantly, to furnish its readers
early, accurate and fair; reports
of all public events, chiefly those
of , special interest in this city
and province., It is gratifying to'
recall'.many unsolicited testimonials as to the lucidity and absolute fairness „ of . The' Canadian's
reports'. ',    .,
In  politics,    imperial,  Dominion
arid     British'   Columbian,,   it has
been a consistent and loyal advocate'  of   the -cause  of  Conservatism. - It  stood  always  for maio-
.taining     and     strengthening   the
imperial connection and.for spontaneous -   performance by  Canada
of-    all.the duties and the fulfill-"

LEGAL CASE
Washington, D. C, May 7-A->
cording • to the"' view of the department of 3^tice and'administration" officials generally, .the
most" important .legal case in the
recent history , of the .government
is that which" was presented -to
[the' United States .Circuit Court
of Appeals' by„Edwin W. Sims,
district, attorney of Chicago,, The
case started on Thursday, and
the    decision    as  to   whether   the
§"29.000,000     fine   "imposed     "by;
Judge Landis upotf-the^ Standard
New Westminster, May 7—W. ?.
Archibald, Dominion prison parole officer; is-in the city on his
annual trip of inspection to the
(British- Columbia penitentiary,
where he is taking up any differences between the prisoners and
those in charge, arid is also . considering any ^applications that
may be made by those incarcerated for release on parole.,
The particulars of .'each case, together with recommendations will
be laid before the minister of, jus-
' tice at ' Ottawa to be dealt with.,
Mr. Archibald says that the parole system* has met with great success in Canada, and that it is seldom • that a man who has been
paroled does not' live a sober,
steady and industrious life
the time he is liberated. .

DEAFNESS CANNOT BE. CURED
By local  applications,' as they
cannot roach tho diseased portion
of the ear.   There is only one way.
to cure deafness and that is   by
constitutional "remedies.    Deafness
is caused' by an inflamed condition
of the mucous lining of tho Eustachian tube,   When this tube if* inflamed you have a rumbling oound
and imperfeot hearing,  and when
it is entirely closed deafness is tho
result,  and   unless the inflammation can   be taken out and thla
tube restored to its normal condition,   hearing    will bo destroyed
forever; nine eases out of ten are
caused by catarrh, which is nothing    but an inflamed,condition
of the mucous surfaces,
3orden,'supported his demand for
the cleansing of the civil service
and the immediate ■ abolition*., of
the spoils system and,the conservation of all the national wealth
for all the people of the nation.
In British ' Columbia politics
The Canadian has supported the
administration of the' Hon.- Richard McBride and his colleagues,
believing that the maintenance of
his government ■■ was essential to
the , stability, efficiency, and' pro-
o-ressiveness of the administra-
tion of the'province.
In regard to the, local affairs of
the city of Nelson The Canadian
has be'en on the side of progress.
Its    watchword   for the city has
always been  "Forward,"  and for
tho    attainment    of  that  it  has
urged1, and done its most to promote harmonious co-operation of
all citizens for the public welfare.
In   spite    of    some unfavorable
circumstances,  the  degree  of  support accorded has been moBt gratifying  and  sincere  thanks     are
here extended to those who have
given the paper their steady, •j*-***1'*
erous and loyal support,
With the purpose for which it
wus founded now accomplished
The Daily Canadian takes leave
of its readers, wishing them and
the city of Nelson continued pros*

,If the big "fine is sustained -it'
■wiU - roeem • a-boAy--blow for- the
oil monopoly, as it will pipe out
the. profits of one branch of the
bi-, concerns for two or , three
years' at least. - There is a great
principle at-stake, aside from the
enormous fine', and the government is anxious to uphold its
position'that every "shipment    of
filed which  caused     the    government a' good deal  of concern.
John P. Miller, attorney for* the
oil trust, urged ,that the effect of
the Hepburn law of June' 29,
1906, was to extinguish all-penalties for offenses committed under the Elkins law, which it was
supposed to repeal. The. offenses
had been committed and indictments found under the Elkins law
so that if this' contention of "the
Standard • Oil- people had ' been
sustained'it would have put an
end to  the, prosecution at once.
Judge Landis  overruled  the  demurrer  in   an   elaborate • opinion,
but- as     he     was only a, district
judge no  one knew how the mat-
ter'VwWd' be; viewed by  the'up-

however, 'iri the case involving

Fortunately for the government
the supreme court has 'this winter
decided several  cases .which have
i a direct bearing on the main con*
tention  of the- Standard Oil  Co.
in the Chicago suit, which resulted in tbe imposition of the sensational, fine.   The government   has
bcien su-stained  invariably     -and
somo     of •' the    most   important
points   made by John *?■  Miller
nnd other attorneys of the Stan*
dard Oil Co, during the trial of
the Chicago case has now    been
specific-ally overruled by fro bu*
preme court.
The result is that on appeal to
the circuit court of appealB next
week the principal point at issuo
will bo not so much tbe conBtltu*
tionallty of the ElklnB law or the
question whether it was repealed
in whole or part by the Hepburn
law.   The real issue will be, first,
as to whether there was a separ-
ate offense every timo a shipment
was made, and secondly, whether
the fine of f?20,000,000 was excen*
sive and an abuse ot discretion bo
that it became cruel and unusual
punishment, which is prohibited
by the constitution of the United
States.

there   is     much   curiosity as to

by    the   Standard Oil Company
and     the r,tc«88lty of tlxln% the
maximum fine on each count of
tbe indictment,
In the trial of the Standard Oil

j®®®^^
some of these accounts because of
material variance between the indictment and proof- There were
left 1,462, counts, and Judge Landis after careful consideration inflicted' the maximum fine of §20,-
000 on each count.
The Standard Oil people take
the. ground that the facts shown
at the trial do not constitute ,1,-
462 distinct offenses, but, on tho
contrary, that all of tho transac
tions between the Standard Oil
Company and the Chicago and
Alton railroad are not a seriea
of Boparato offenBes, but are related parts of a continuous courso
of conduct, bo that they amount
to only one continuous offence,
involving a single fine,
It is easy to see that if this contention is adopted by tho court
it will be impossible to roach a
great company like the Standard
Oil concern. Twenty thousand
