E Pluribus Unum
The Spokane Chamber of Commerce f tbe opportunity to walk around our
came. They heard, they saw, and
they appreciated the endeavor of the
Fernie people to entertain them. We
feel proud, and justly proud of the
way in which our citizens turned out
and helped to make the' day as pleasant as possible' for our .friends and
cousins from the south.
The Spokane Chamber of Commerce
is represented by a body of men of
the highest business and commercial
. ability. They are men1 of worth,
both to their country and themselves; men who have made a name
for the fair city of Spokane and
district. They are also men who
know how to enjoy themselves, and
men who know how to appreciate the
*■ efforts for their enjoyment. It is to
. this fact as much as any other that
we owe the successful day that we
had on the 6th. A day that will
not soon be forgotten by any who
were fortunate enough to be able to
take part in it in any way.
At four o'clock the special train
carrying the"delegation, consisting of
about one hundred and thirty, arrived and the Fernie band'started
playing their national air "The Star
Spangled , Banner." From the.sta-
, tion they proceeded to the beautiful
lawns surrounding the Cqal Company
office, where a stand had been erected for the occasion and where the
members, as many as would, were escorted by Mayor, Tuttle. The mayor
in a . few choice, words then welcomed the visitors to our city.
Mr. .F. E. Goodall, the president of
, the    Spokane Chamber of Commerce
' replied in .a few feeling words of ap-°
. preciation, and Mayor Tuttle     then
presented     the, visitors' with. a large

Fernie. In presenting it Mayor-Tuttle said, that it would unlock everything in the city but the jail;     and
1 that the jail had a time lock which
was set so as not to unlock until
after tho time fixed for the departure of tho Chamber of Commerce, so
that the visitors wcre,,to tako entiro
possession of the city. The doors
had   been   taken   entirely   off     the
, saloons, the city in general was theirs
as tha omblems at the station and
tho opera house corner intimated,
'•Spokane tho city is yours today."
Mayor Tuttlo then outlined the programme for the aftornoon, and said
that through tho courtesy of Manager Hurd, of the Crow's Nest Pass
Coal Co., tho engine and cars of tho
Coal Creek train wore ready for the
viBitorB to ;, use for a trip to the
Tho ladles wero then informed that
owing to. lack of spaco in tho opera
houso, where the banquet was to bo
held, that arrangements had been
mado whereby tho ladicB of Pernio
would entertain the ladicB of Spokane at a dinner in tbo Napaneo and
Fernio hotels,
The ladies woro also informed that
Mrs, Hurd very kindly invitod them
all down to hor spacious grounda for
aftornoon tea at five o'clock and
they accordingly wonded their way
Photographer Spalding then took a
largo view of tho visitors, together
with some members of tho reception
committee of Pernio.
After this the visitors who wished
went to Coal Creek, whoro Mr. Black
the genial superintendent of the M,
F. & M, showed them all tho machinery connected with tbo mining of coal. A visit was also made
to the club to sample the polite beverages there obtainable before entraining for tho return to Pernio. The
visitors expressed surprise at tho
magnitude of tho machinery operated
hy the Crow's Nest Pass Coal Co.
city and expressions of surprise    at
the stability of the buildings m the
course   of erection, as    well es:the
ones already built, were heard   ; en
all sides,
Promptly at ,7.30 as announced the
banquet committee in charge of Tom
Beck, had everything in readiness
and the guests of the evening were
ushered in. The* hall had been very
tastefully decorated for the occasion
and the tableB were filled to overflowing with good things to eat. Of
course the drinkables had not been
overlooked and -everything in the
line of liquors had been served, from
ten year old to soda water.
Miller's orchestra, composed of H.
Rochon, violinist; Jas. Pasta cornet-
ist; Paul Pasta, Clarionet, F. Wad-
dy, Cellist, and Pat Miller, director
and pianist, rendered some very nice
Mayor Tuttle then proposed the
first toast on the list "The.King."
Fred Dick then rendered a song,
"Son of the Desert" in a most commendable manner and was heartily
encored. The next toast was "Ted
Roosevelt," the president of the United States, which was heartily
drank. Mr. H. B. Fuller sang
"Mona"'!which was encored. "Our
visitors," was next proposed, and
Mr. F. E. Goodall, president of the
Spokane Chamber of Commerce, responded on behalf of that body.
Mr. Goodall said in the course of
his remarks that he was more than
pleased with the * reception. that they
had received at the hands of the
Fernie people. He, could not find
words that would convey the feeling
oLhimselL and, his* confreres v-ho
were taken by surprise at the magnificent reception that they had received. He very cordially and .leart-
ily extended an invitation for Fernie
citizens to come to Spokane end le-
ceive a return of the hospitality.*He
thought that these" meetings and
friendly feelings did more to cement
the better relations of the two countries than anything else could do. He
said that both commercially and as
a" united brotherhood the two nations should be cemohted together
closer and closer.
A trio was then rendered by F.
Dick, Robt. Webb and Pat- Miller.
They made tho hit of the evening
with tho singing of "Sunny Old Spokane" and were recalled again and
again. At this, juncture Mr, H, , L,
Edmunds, president of the aPernio
board of trade roso to proposo tho
toast to tho ProBs, coupling with
tho toast tho names of N. W. Durham ot the Spokesman Roview, and
Mark Drum of, tbo Frank Paper. Mr.
Durham mado a vory mastorly reply and touched on various phases of
history whon the two natlonB woro
practically at war or ill feeling with
each other, and showed the difference
at the prosont timo, He said ho
would hnto to think of anything that
would ever mair tho good feelings of
tho prosent time, or cause either of
tho two flags which woro boforo him
to unfurl on anything but pence. Mr.
Durham ia a man of knowledgo and
It was n pleasure to listen to him,
Mr. Drum was then called on, and
said that he felt flattered, as ho was
hardly known to more than half a
dozen of those present. He made a
vory good speech, and nsked to be
excused while putting in a few words
of "shop." Ho wantod tho flpokano
people to go home with a proper understanding of the products of the
Crow's Nest Pass, nnd more than all
ho wanted a right conception of tho

time, s- Mr. l E. F. Ambrey then proposed the-toast "The Ladies" , and
asked for the Rev. J. W. Hinley to
respond. Mr., Hinley is one of the
most entertaining' gentlemen that
we have had the pleasure of listening
to. He took the ladies' side very
nicely, commented on the decoration, the combination of colors, the
afternoon tea, the reason why tLey
were excluded for the first part of
the banquet, and told many amusing
anecdotes which kept his audience in
a continuous round of laughter. A
member of the Spokane Chamber of
Commerce, whose name we' could not
get, then rose and asked permission
to say a tew words. He repeated the
thanks and surprise that they h.'.i'dly
knew how to explain. He -.-aid that
it would afford them great r Up sure
to return, to Fernie. He stated that
of all the .magnificent receptions they
had received on the way through,
that Fernie had provided the best,
and, the heartiest. He once again
thanked them all and asked Dr. Bon-
nell, ex-mayor, to say a few words,

Fear Bloodshed in Case
of Making Arrests
Winnipeg, July 7—A despatch from
Antler, Man., where old Jas. Sharpe
and his band of fanatics from the
United States are in camp, says the
mounted police, are having a hard
time arresting the leader. The band
is well armed, and. will only allow
one policeman at a time inside their
camp. It is impossible to reason
with them, and they say they* will
not be taken alive. The women are
as.bad as the men, and.are full    of
fight. .'-.'■.    ". ■ ' y '
The question, to be solved is how
to arrest the leader without causing
bloodshed, as there are a number, of
women and children in the party.
Every effort is being made to have
them taken back from whence . they
came, North Dakota, but the leader
is obdurate, and insists that, he will
go to Yorkton to lead the Doukho-
bofs. *•;    .-'        '  -   ,'
The following letter was left for
the police yesterday; written by the
"Virgin ' Maty," dictated by "Jesus
Christ": -: " ■■■ .      /
"To save bloodshed, "use sound

.■ ,In .most-European countries     tbe
people know who govern them.
'    -  '   * c '  '
The people of this country either
-don't know, or. will not believe when
•they are told.'..
Our rulers are much shrewder than
those abroad.,
The Czar and the Kaiser frankly
-declare that they run the whole}
show. In ...this country our rulers
. toll us that we rule. We proudly believe it and1 are content—and vote
•enthusiastically for the ruler.-- that
lies, most in this respect. ,
■Our rulers then sit down to their
•desks, set , the machinery at work,
and .. touch the. buttons that govern
•Back of every great.''statesman" is
•a low browed political'heeler-^a kind
-of political valet.* He docs the dirty
'-work.   When .'there' are. not. sufficient
. actual-..,-'..Votes if or, his candidate - he
adds the necessary fraudulent votes:
But he takes" care ' id 'see 'thatthe
..Vstatesman'J'has clean linen and .-,'a
•Vrespectable' appearance.  i >'
■;:\ Back of the heeler- are the corpora-
.,,'tions'.-/They provide the funds,;"
. V The "statesman" who has the best
heeler   and     the best 'chance to .win
\ gets the money.     ./. *._..'. . .■"
'.Whether , the "statesman-is a Republican or Democrat does not matter. The question is, whichis going
. to win? And the'political favorite is
backed good and strong, by the corporations..
Por    instance, \tlie '-. corporations
liked Judge Parker better than they,
.-., liked Roosevelt,; but' they knew that
Roosevelt was going to win, and so
•they gave ' millions tduthe political
heelers back of Mr. Roosevelt, while
•Judge Parker,'whom they liked, was,
sore pressed for funds. ,
-By backing the,winners the corporations always manago to own a good
majority"of our" "statesmen," both
Democrats and , Republicans. They
have n majority in every state nnd
municipal council in the country,
while in congress they have a 'majority and thon some.
Now thepe facts everybody knows,,
or should know. :,    '
We don't govern' ourselves,- and lot
, us honostly admit' it.   But if wo aro
, content to lot tho corporations govern, us through thoir private   owned
Democrats and Republicans then let
them appoint some porson as, boss. •'
Aa it is wo don't, .know.'exactly who
governs us,   Whon wo nro in trouble
: we   don't know whore to' go to got
out ' of   trouble,   Wo   .. don't   know
where to send    our petitions, or of
whom to ask favors.       '   ' ' ;
i It would greatly facilitate matters
If the corporations would soloet some
boss to whom wo would go with our
BriovancoB—who    would    hnvo    the
stories of knight-errantry, 'you* find
.that certain swords and armors vlsy
almost,as great a.role as the iuenin
the armors who wielded the    arords.'
The'power of the right lnstrimont
is tremendous. -
In the battles of our own day we
need instruments. A few stump orators seem to, think that shrieking
will avail.

United States senate. Robert La Fol-

man who was considered worthy
of an invitation to deliver an address ..before an. audience of the

rix.nia'the Responsibility Fop the Loss
of Harpers Ferry.
President"Lincoln's jokes, especially
when perpetrated in connection with
grove matters, usually had a purpose
in them. Atter Lee had, taken. Harpers Ferry the president, realizing how
great a calamity it- was to the northern arms, determined If possible" to fix
the responsibility for the loss of the
important position. "
Hnlleck was summoned, but did not"
know 'where the blame lay. "Very
well," said Lincoln; "I'll ask General
Schenck." The-latter could throw uo
light-uponi the question, further thau
to say that he was not to blanie. Mll-
roy was the next to be called to* the
presence of • the' commander ,in. chief,
and to enter, a plea of "not guilty."
Hooker, was next given a hearing, and
"Fighting Joe" made a very emphatic
disclaimer of all responsibility.
Then the president assembled the
four generals in his room and said,to
them: "Gentlemen, Harpers Ferry was
surrendered and none of you, itseems,
is responsible. I am very anxious to
discover the man who is." After striding across the room several times the
president suddenly,threw up his bowed head and exclaimed: "I have lt! 1
know who is responsible'" ,    '" ,   '
"Who, Mr. President; who Is it?"
asked tbe distinguished quartet as they
looked anxious, if not troubled.
"Gentlemen,",, said1 the president,
with a meaning twinkle,in his eye,
"General Lee is the man."
There was a lack of-; mirth , in the
laugh created, and the four generals
took their departure with a determlna-
'tion that they would not again, be
placed under suspicion. ."''.'.,

Tasks Often Performed While , the
Worker Slumbers. .•.'" .
A psychologist, was , discussing 'the
miracles of sleep. .    / ,
"One can become so accustomed," he
said, "to a monotonous task that one
can fall asleep aud still keep on working. Thus In India;-there are punka
coolies, men who turu.a fan all night
long- In the hot weather while their
English masters rest, nnd it is riot uncommon for a punka cooly to acquire
the knack of sleeping (it his task. On
and on he sleeps through the hot, perfumed hours of the Indian night, but
his Thand mechanically and steadily
turns the punka pulley.
"Men have .composed great literary
works in their sleep. Coleridge's 'Ku-
bla Khan' is the.most famous example
of this; but, then. Coleridge was^ a
morphlnomaniac. and his sleep, was
scarcely, natural. But R._ L; Stevenson,
Corelll and Longfellow liave also done
good work, while sleeping.     , <" "
'■ "Divers sometimes fall asleep deep
down .in the sea, but some unknown
part of their braiu beeps watch, and
at, the proper moment.,though asleep',
they give the order, to be hauled up.*
This is a good deal like the miracle
that happens to all of us—the miracle
whereby if we tell..ourselves on retiring that we must, wake' at' 7 we invariably, do wake at that hour—bow
or why it Is Impossible to say. Some
part of. us wntches. works, keeps
awake all night, so that at 7,it may
call  us."

It will be noted that in the debate
in the house of commons Mr. Hardie

that he did not maintain his defy to

' Comrade Harrison, occupied the
chair and said: That to,his mind hospital Sunday was brought about by
the evils of capitalism. Under a
proper system there would be no necessity for charity. If the workers were
not exploited I hey would have money

Considerable discussion arose at the
List meeting of the city   council co'n-
ceriiing'lhe' contracts "that,,have .been

that the mayor instructed the city engineer and secretary \oiee that a fair
wags clause was inserted in  the specifications, but for some' reason or reasons unknown these gentlemen failed to
carry out the mayor's orders hence the
discussion.    The aldermen   assembled
instructed the^mayor to refuse to sign
up.the contracts unless the .contractors,
agreed to accept the fair wage clause.

Dear Sir—As I pres une jc-. are
aware, that after the defeat of the

Federation of. "Miners and Industrial Workers of the World at
Goldfield, Nevada, the same gang
inaugurated a strike at Fairbanks
in Alaska,, and subsequently at
Douglas Island, on thc Alaska-
Treadwell Gold Mining & Milling
It appears that. thc officials    of
the local unions 'at'Fairbanks and
Juneau have been appealing     for
aid     to    the   Westera Federation
headquarters here in Denver,  and
I herewith attach a copy of a letter   recently    written   by Charles
■ Moyer     to   the   president  of the
Western Federation of Miners     at
Juneau, Alaska, which explain*, itself.   In this letter you will   note
that Moyer claims there is about
',70   per cent, of their membership
idle   at   the,   present' time.    The
'statement of Moyer is htisleading,
*s   there is    possibly 85 por cent.

presont timo.   When wo effected the

A Dealor Tells Why ihe Maid Breaks
.---.Them So Often.'-
"Our maid certainly worked .destruc-;.
tion ou those sherry glasses, those delicate little glasses." said the customer
t_' the dealer. ""There were sis. and
she broke three inside of three
months,"-'' |'
**Oh. you got off easy, judging from
the stories that come to us.", replied
the store man. ....-'
■   "Weil,'11  see how It ""is."'responded _
the. customer.   "I' tried, wiping a  few
of these glasses myself the other.night,
nnrl the nrstlliing I'-k'newJ-.wiped the
nide, right, out of one. ■ As the maids-
pay,"'Why., .-they   break • right  In .the .
towel!'""'  .' -      e.. ".     --
"Now, If you would wait until they
were nearly;dry." remarked'the dealer,
"you'd never'break'any lit-all. Tako
tills Vordial glass with the very 'thin
stem. You-naturally'seize it by the
foot and turn it .*hile you wipe the
bowl with the other., hand. While the
glass Is wet ..the Jlsh towel, gripped
between two lingers,' holds the bowl
like a .vise, and you just, naturally,
twist the stem in. two! But If you let
the glass get nearly dry the towel
slips, and the danger is over."
"Doesn't tbat make streaked glasses?" .        '
"No, not If the water and towels are
clean. Of course you' ought to, have
towels that you use only for glassware. Towels tha have been used on
dishes are' likely to have grease ou'
them, and grease is the great '•enemy
of brilliancy In'glassware."
"Then can soap be used In the wa-
"ph. yes. We use pure while soap
wirii ours.' .The main point is to have
the water hot enough. That helps with
the drying, too. because .wheu.-you' take
a glass out of very, hot water* and set
It aside to drain it will dry itself-before you can lake a towel to it. <Tis-
sue paper Is good as a polisher because
usually It has never touched grease.,
Alcohol has a reputation as a polisher,
but its function is rather to,c!e;r' Cut

Port Au Prince, July 6—The disastrous fires which started in the vicinity of the palace and senate buildings here yesterday and was believed
to have been controlled after four
hundred buildings were burned, broke
out , again during the night and
caused further extensive damage:.
The" renewal of the conflagration
was caused by an explosion, which
shook the whole" town, damaged
many buildings and scattered blazing
embers over a wide area. The roof
of, tne National bank was thrown
down by the violence of the conciis-.
sion when the explosion occurred.
ii '
Thc. second fire was supposed to
have been checked at midnight, but
tho, (lames got'a third start this
morning, and before they could bo
subdued forty more buildings had
been destroyed. The city was almost
in a state of panic; The flames' surged aiong with what appeared to be
an irresistable sweep and the terrific
explosion, which occurred at intervals, added to the frenzy of the population. It was,not until the intensity of the fire had diminished that
the regular order was restored. The
chamber of deputies and the large
establishment of the congregation of
St; Louis were menaced lor a time
by the flames, but they were saved
without' damage.

Ralph Sutherland was born in uui-ind

was a man of violent temper uiui morose disposition, shunned by his neighbors and generally disliked. Not lit*- -
iug able to get an American servant,
he.'Imiwrted a Scotchwoman, and. according to the usages of the times, virtually held her in bondage until h*»r
passage money had been refunded.
Unable to endure any longer tlie
ragtag temper of her, master, the girl
ran away. . immediately upon discovering lier absence the-man set off in
jjii augry chase upou his horse -ami
.soon overtook lior.i The poor woman
.never reached the house alive, and
Sutherland was indicted .ind arrestwl
ou the charge of murder.
At the trial he tried tQ prove that
his horse hud taken, fright, run away,
pitched him .out of the. saddle ami
dashed the girl to death upon the
rocks, but the jury, did not accept tin

Coal Creek, B, C.
July 7, 1908.
Parents keep your boys off     the
streets, especially after dark. You
know, not what annoyance,-   these
little     fellows   are,   besides  ,they
le&rii all kinds of meanness, picking up aU the slang phrases uttered by older toys tfKo'nave foxtgot-
ten the prayers taught them     at
their mother's knOe' when they, too,
were innocent little tots like your
own boys now.   If you have nice,
beautiful yards,, allow-your, boys-
to play .. in them, never iscoldins*
them for their merry.laughter, for
'tis far better to be annoyed     at
home • than   to   have them, mixed
up in an ugly affair on the street
of which you know nothing until
it   has    grown col- on everyone's
tongue.   If you value your educa-
tion'as you should, you will keep
your   boys" off     the' streets) where
no     evil association will  corrupt
their morals.
" "There, is no good -reason why a
man should needlessly put his own
wife to,the trouble of wiping    up
] the tracks, when he takes ^ great
pains to clean his feet before cross-
ing his neighbor's' threshhold; nei-
i ther is it consistent-that wewo-
I men -should- be too .'severe on our
(lie rope which had lieen placed there,rown'husband' and son for a- little
if I Only Had Capital
'   The  above  words  were  recently
uttered in" our .hearing by a worthy boy and undoubtedly they are
often reiterated by" many who are
out of employment, • or have little
or nothing to do.   To all such we
say, you have home capital,   you
"have hands, feet, bone muscle and
health, and are not these capital?
What more capital has God given
anybody? "But if I only,had      a
few    thousand   in   cash capital,"
says    the young  man.   But  these
are better, than "cash capital, , for
no  one can take i;liem from you,
and with these you,can earn'cash.
Our men of wealth and influence
did not start with any cash capital.     They   went   to    work with
their "plow, the hoe, the jack plane
or axe,  and in time, their capital
brought them a rich harvest.-Ah!
but"   there's    the   rub; you don't
want to . work.   You want money
on    credit     so  you can  play  the
gentleman,    speculate      and. - end
your career by playing vagabond.
You    want    to marry  a' rich girl
who will support you, while you
wear    fine,   clothes, smoke cigars,
and be a gentleman of leisure.
Shame on you, young man!    Go
to work with the capital that you
have and,you will soon make'interest enough upon it to give you
as much money as you need.    ,If
you   cannot    make' money   upon
what capital you have, you could
ppt if you ha4 ft "larger -Amount in
cash.,.   If you waste.,your present
capital, you-would waste money if
you   "had   it..      So don't     stand
around, a helpless fellow, waiting
for something to turn "up, 'but go
to work. ' Take the first work you
can get to do, and do it well." Always do your.best, and    if.    you
manage your capital that, God has
given - you   well,   you    will soon,
have plenty more to manage.   ■•

Good   breeding,   like       charity,
should begin at home.   The     day
is past when children used to rite
when   their   parents entered     the
room where they were and stand
until they had received.permission
to    sit.   But the mistake is now
made   usually in the other direction in allowing to small boys and
girls too much license to disturb
the peace of   the   household.     Wo
think the best way to train children in   courtesy.would be to observe   toward   them a scrupulous
politeness.   We would go so far as
to say that we should make it as
much a point to lieten to children
without interrupting them and to
answer   them   sincerely    and ■ respectfully as   if they wero grown
up,   And    indeed   many, of their
wiso, quaint sayings are tar better worth listening to than     the
stereotyped commonplaces of    the
morning callers.   Of course, to allow interrupted chatter would bo
to    surrender   tho   repose of the
household, but it is very easy, if
children    are   themselves   scrupulously respected1, to teach them   in
turn scrupulously to respect     the

Is Life Worth living
When  you   hear    this   question
asked by a man or woman,   with
lips  curved   downward  .and  voice
attuned to     discontent,  you, may
set that person down as extremely  selfish.    He  or  she  asks practically,  "Is life worth living    for
me?"     Worth living?  Of course it
is, so'long as. there-is" one - single-
