the medical health officer Dr.1 White-
law, has demanded an inquest and
one will be held tomorrow by Dr. H.
R. Smith. On .August 20th the "child
was vaccinated by Sydney S. Main,
-Assistant health inspector, who is not
a medical practitioner. It is alleged
that the death .was* due .to vaccination. Mr. Foley has written .Dr.
Whitelaw charging , that the child's
death was clue to the vaccination
which he claims was both illegal and
.criminal. He also stated . that :his
child was murdered by the city, "by
means of vaccination operation" ■ and
threatens to begin legal action for
damages against the.corporation: Dr.
-W-hitolaw-denies-thc-vaccinntion-was-
responsible for the deatti of the child.

Tlie following amusing but sometimes too true' article appeared"in
the hist issuo"of the Great Wost, the
organ of the Canadian ""Equity'Society.     It speaks for  itself. .
A few days ago two Equity' men,'
both conscientious readers of -the
Great West, went lo thoir local post
•oflk'cfoi1 their mail. Oho of tho two
did not see his Great West as it was
hidden in the middle of. his bundle of
mail so not wishing tn miss his fort
nightly treat, he went, to the wieket
and iiskr-d tho fair Goddess who dispenses, wisdom,-gossip and if she can
spiiiv time, stamps and niall thoro-
I | from what had he-conn* of Ids Great
Wost. What paper do you want sho
asked and on hearing the reply Great
Wost she took a copy from out. another box and calmly touring of.' the label boforo his eyes, handed It to him.

A very small, congregation attended the Methodist Church last-Sunday night owing to lliv Steeiisbn's
farewell servico, a service which was
one of the most'touching and impres:
sive ever held here. Many were .in
tears afe Mr. Steenson "pronounced
the benediction. It speaks' well' for
his ministry • when he can so*enter
the human heart in the' brief"' space
of one yeur. The Synod hope to
place a man in his stead by thc flrst
Sunday in October. Many friends
came down on 'Tuesday night to see
Mr': Steenson o!T for Montreal.   ,
That unruly "cow belonging to Mat
Tulley, has lost that grating, ding,
dong tin ho culls a boll/-Some,ono
else loves its music, better than th'e
poet and has'taken .possession of it.
The poet got ,a glass of. milk, under
the promise of trying to find that
horrid ding, dong cani.which,-so annoys him0 when courting—not the
nurse—but the muse. Have you heard
of his; second baptism? If not, enquire from the kitchen mechanic 145.
Probably he may tell the story in

Jack Harrington, who- has taken'
«P his abode among ns, left on' Saturday night for Lethbridge to speak
at a Socialist" demonstration!
-Mr, Kingsley, drew a good ■ full
.night," and held'his audience, .spell-
house at the club hall last Tuesday
bound by his eloquence for one hour
and forty-five, minutes. His address
was ■ masterly.' He „ evidently has .his
subject ..woven into his very systom
and speaks n's-armaa of authority,"on"
.Socialistic questions, and,'', apart"
from a few, slang phrases which' ought
not to bo" uttered from a public platform, his address proper was all that
could be desired. ....   \     .
-—However^yheiraskiifgn"of"^UMt"ions"
he' made a few rambling remarks, one
of which provoked rather a lively incident,, Mr...Bamboro'ugh asking him",
"If such contemptuous^ sneers as-ho
had used, such , as; . 'Sky Pilot' and
'chicken eaters' were conducive to the
best interests of the Socialist purt'v,
knowing as' he did' 'that' several
'Christian ministers had joined their
ranks, and that tho,two groat Chris,
•tian churches, of 'Caniulm, •had, ,' in
effect, endorsed the .Socialist programme?'" The reply ,was, most, ova^-
sivo, but it miisl bo, a'iiswured boforo
a proper understanding eon be'.obtained, It is'looked upon. - im an in-1

O. N. Ross, Manager.
Calgary, Sept. 8.—The News .says:
"You're a pretty poor specimen of
an officer."
"Why 'don't you arrest, me?"
These are specimens of the sort of
taunta that Fr*irik Sherman, the So.
cialist candidate for the Calgary riding, and the president of the district of tlie United Mine'Workers of
America flung in the teeth of Cliief
English of the city, police force last
night. The crowd continued to taunt
and jeer the chief but he took little
notice of it.
a The Socialists were holding .one of
the regular, nightly open air political
meetings on the "street near the
Queen's ■ hotel, urging the support
of their cause.
The  meeting  had  been  addressed
by"C. Si. O'Brien; Dominion organizer for the' Socialist party, and Frank
Sherman;' the . Socialist    candidate.
Alex. Susnar had the stand and was
speaking a few. words in his'native
language   when' the   chief   of  police
loomed up, on the'sky line. He questioned the speaker .'as to whether,he
was "a- British  subject  or.' not,  and
pushed him off the box lie was standing 6n,' ordering him at the same time
"to get-out o' that.'.''He placed the
man  under arrest  and  after taking
him down to the" station came back
to see what ..was doing.
-.Erank, Sherman, having heard what
had happened ,eame 'out   and    commenced to address the crowd.   When
the chief arrived he ordered the crowd
to dispense.  ,  Sherman refused     to
budge from the box he was standing
upon'and told' the chief "he (Sherman) was too old a bird to be caught
by chaff."    This ■ brought forth     a
burst of jeers from the audience.
Addressing the crowd    again    the
chief said "I ask-you to disperse.".
' \ voice in-the crowd shouted back:
"Who  are  you? -Where's  your  uniform?"  ■ -
Seeing that--Mr. Sherman was ob,
_stinate_and_didjiot._intend_to_go avyay
tlie chief demanded liis name.
"My name," said the speaker "is
.Frank   Henry' Sherman,   of    Taber,
"Alberta, and if I'm -breaking'the law
I ask you to arrest me."
Here  the  crowd" again   interposed
*"S
ft
Gee Whiz !
with jeers at the chief.
"I'll do that when I get ready."
answered the chief.   (More jeers.)
'Why don't you take your bunch
of Russions somewhere else?" he continued.  ,
"It was you and your kind,who
brought, them here," retorted Sherman. 'Men of Canada, I know the
duty of an officer of the law, and I
say he can't arrest me." (Applause.)
"You're a poor specimen of an olli-
ccr," he fired at the chief as a parting" shot.
"Gentleman, we frequently meet
with this kind of opposition but we
are ready to put up our last dollar
to defend our rights as Canadian citizens.- If we are doing wrong why
doesn't he arrest us? (Cheers.) We
have a, right'to speak on the, streets
if we choose to do so."
"We pay, for them, and it's the
likes o' us what keep3 the chief and
likes o' him," chimed in a husky
voice.'     , '      ' ■
■ "Where is he? The chief has gone
to get a drink," yelled another.
"I am working to uphold the cause
of the working mnn in-Canada," con
tinued' Mr. Sherman, "and another 1
meeting will ' be addressed here tomorrow night at a quarter ■ to eight,
which I particularly wish to .draw
the attention of the chief and his
friends to."
The meeting then broke. up and
Chief English together with an officer
in uniform turned their attention to
keeping the sidewalks clear.
'.You had better not shove me,"
said a belligerent voice with an unmistakable Scotch accent to the offi.'
cer.       '■-,'
"Don't touch him," advised the
chief,  "he's a nice man,"
The crowd hung around conversing
in little knots on the street,corners
for half an hour longer, but nothing
more of an" interesting nature occurred. Frank- Sherman and company
.afterwar_ds_applied to the magistrate
and got, Susnar out on-baii.=i=ik=-
He appeared at the police court this
morning but the case at-the request
of W.' T. D: Lathwell, counsel -for the
defence, was adjourned, until Friday.

A   GOOD   MAN
President F. H. Sherman has consented to stand • in the coming election for Calgary. We are glad that
the admirers of, Frank Sherman have
persuaded him to ■ come forward.
They have made no' mistake- in that
choice, as Frank is a man of sterling qualities, A man who is iearless
in .attacking the present system of
polities, a man who is much feared
by the leaders on both sides as well
• as those who hang on to the top of
' the fence.
We are not being paid for this recommendation. It is nothing in
our pockets, as some weasley mouthed coyotes who reside in Fernie and
'call" themselves Socialists, once had
, the audacity to insinuate. But we
are conscientious iu the belief that
a man with a broad mind, a quick
grasp oi the situation, and an iron
■ -will, is the man that the. Socialists
most need, anil we know that whatever emergency crops up Frank will
bn there. There i's hardly any
doubt as to his winning. We would
like to have see:i him brought out for
Fernie, as the prospects for a good
man for this district seems very slim
at present.
Here's success for Frank Sherman
in his coming fight.
of labor make clear their opposition
to all attempts to stir up a race war.
The attitude of the United Mine
Worker's is a model in this respect.
They have suffered from the attempt
to use negro strike-breakers perhaps
more than any other organization.
Yet they have dared, in the very heat
of the present excitement to insist
upon the right of the negro to their
assistance and fellowship.
In this attempted race war, as in
the wider international ^conflicts, labor is once more proving itself to be
the .most powerful force in present society that works for human brotherhood and social solidarity.—Chicago

LOCKING THE STABLE
As a result of the ' recent disas-
" trous fires through British Columbia,
the government are talking of more
-stringent regulations relating to
mining affecting! ijuvd's within the
limits of a timber berth. The new
Tules call for all debris that is to be
burned being placed'in heaps and a
strip cleared around them to the extent of at least twenty feet.
This.is a little better than before,
biit as is" always the case the government must wait till some terrible calamity happens  before it moves on
0    any subject.*   Will the authorities, enforce these  new  regulations,  or will
they merely write them - down   and
,  consider that, they have  saved   any
further  calamities  of    this    nature?
Ten to one they will'do the     latter.
Why?'   Simply  because  so  many of
their colougue.-, would bs- slightly in-
_j_convenieuced-bj~Fmy^uTtmTTiTgTIilP
.lions in regard to getting their "mere
pittance" out of  the  vast  forests  of
- our country.' Strange, is it not, how
many government    oflicials    contrl.l
vast   areas   of   our  timber.    Strange
"'' too, that if a poor workingman wants
a few dry sticks and dares to help
himself, he is inking a chance of being imprisoned, but if these capitalistic  government  hogs  will  let  millions of feet of this timber rot, and
fall down, and  then in their selfish
methods   of  getting   out   timber   for
their mills cause fires which dovestntc
the country for miles.    Surely -such
a system lias had.its day, and light
is'-dawning  on   the   workers  of  the
world.   The remedy for all this is for
the people to control the government,
not the government tho people, and
'then thn timber will bt handled judiciously and less of these bush fires
occur as the people will all have an
interest, in the forests that God cm-
,nted for them, and it will he their
policy  to,, better   and   protect  them
than nt present.   Oh, for this ohangc
to come.    Workers arise, you     can
bring it about.
CLASS LEGISLATION
There is no doubt that governments
have a tendency to legislate for
classesk who' will' return them the.
greatest number of votes. It is the
way of all governments. ■ The British
Columbia lumbermen pomplain that
the prairie,farmers have laws passed
in thf'ir interest whicli creates unjust
conditions for the manufacturer oi
lumber.
Premier Lnurier is, quoted as say-
ing°that "it'would .not do to put a
duty' on lumber coming in" from
Washington State" It would not'do
for the-farmers, but it seems it does
not matter about "the lumber manufacturers.
<This fact that there is no duty
on lumber is a constant menace to
the ■ manufacturers, for the reason j
that it throws out the balance of power, and places British Columbia mills
at the mercy of the State of Washington. At the. present time logs are
being sold, in Washington Slate'at $4
and .?4..ri0 a thousand; and in B. C.
at $7. In the States labor is cheaper
and all machinery twenty-five per
cent, cheaper. Lumber is selling at
$6 and $6.50 over there, and at $9
in Vancouver basic ■ price, - and' at
those figures the lumbermen claim it
is-below-cost.-Free lumber places thei
B. C. mills in.this position: if they
do not sell low enough, although for
them that-price may be below cost,
the buyer will bring in the free lum-
from Wash i ncton —CmniRemal
