PHILIP CAROSELLA
the stamp of his approval upon'trade
agreements,, regarcjlets of the-'fact
that craft contracts expiring at different periods" of. time have been-, the
brakes .upon the progress of the labor
movement ■ of the country. .Through
trade agreements one craft has scab.-
bed upon another -craft, and under
the name of unionism, laboring.men
carrying cards-in their pockets,* have
been made allies of their employer
to defeat. labor on strike. ^
Mr. Mitchell' in his. letter expresses an anxiety .for the welfare; of the
"public." Who is this, "public1.' that
is always mentioned when conflicts
arise bytween the master and his
slave?     _,"''..'•'
The "public" should mean all the
people and'it is-a well known axiom
that "he who is- not with ' , you is
against yon."- The public is divided
into two clases:the elas that rules
and the class that is ruled.
The ..public is made up of exploit,
ers and exploited, and in labor con.
diets the public takes sides. There is
no sueh thing, as a disinterested in.
noceiit public. In every buttle, be.
twci'ii employer, and employee tthe
public takes a hand and is worthy ol
no more consideration than the, .pari
tifs that are.directly engaged in tlio
eoidlict.
It is reasonable to assume.' tint
Mitchell no longer 'represents ■ the
real interests of labor. ' The "labor
leader" who call command a salnrud
berth from a Civic Federation is not,
like Caesar's wife, above suspicion.—

FIRST FLOORS AND BASEMENTS ON MAIN STREET
FLOODED
\ Atlanta," Ga„ Aug. 27.—With the water through Broad street breast deep
in a "current so strong that it is impossible " for men to wade through
Auuusta is being swept by a' flood
that has not been *-urpas*.ed in its
history. ,      \ /
From four lo * six feet of water is
the'guage on the. principal, streets
of the town. On Broad street ■ the*
main'- thoroughfare of the city .where
are located .nearly all cf the public
buildings together .with the principal business houses and banks, the
flood > is. playing havoc with first
floors and basements.. The city is
without light, fire or police protection. Fire started last night' in the
cotton warehouse oi Nixcn & Dan.
forth, and in the warehouse of Nixon",
wholesale grocery -company. • It ,is
said that the fives were caused by the
-water reaching lime stored in u one
of'.the warehousfs. The fire depart,
ment was unable to render'any assistance-on account, of the high wa.
ter. ' * '  ', -
Two white persons and ono -negro
have'been reported drowned.''" It was
also reported that'' a boat containing
a family of husband; wife and; two
children was capsized' and all drown,
ed, but this could.not"'be confirmed.
A "conservative,-estimate of the damage by flood and fire at.this time has
been placed- at half a million dollars but it is'b.-lieved this sum will
be greatly exceeded before the flood

The, local ■ ministers exchanged'pulpits last-'Sunday'night; the Rev, J:
Steenson- preaching a/forcible sermon on the "Digging out of Old
Wells"' emphasizing on - the, necessity for. a Return to old'biblical I truths
and doctrines',' dwell'rig chiefly oii
th'e doctrines of original-sin, the
Diety of Christ, the atonement and
the judgment which so many higher
critics have sought for so, long to destroy. .Probably that, being the:first
time Mr. .Steenson has occupied the.
Methodist pulpit, it may also be his
last as on Friday night, August 28th
we shall meet at "a farewell and presentation meeting. Mr. Steenson has
made many-good friends, not, only at
the Creek, but throughout, the entire
district and his presence from among
us, shall be greatly missed and regretted, but he is leaving for a nobler
sphere', of activity and'a better equip,
ment for. the - calling into which, he
has been .called. We wish him "God
Speed" and a brilliant future.
It i« not definitely known. as yet,
but Mr. John Hughes* is expected,to
fill the. breach caused by Mr.','Steen-
son's departure, until the synod1 gets
a sucessor' to take charge of the
flock.    ' '
Mr. Hughes „ contemplates -.being
sent on to the mission, field at" 110
distant date, so that Coal Creek is
•losing some of. its' most intelligent
and purest boys all at once.1 Let
us hope that the rank of virtue may
be reinforced, not only by new.com.
•ers, but by those, ■ who,- seeing im.
purity is a lolly, taking firm hold of
their convictions, will stand manful,
ly up for righteousness'. ' .These are
the. men we need and must have, not
they whose 'mouths are - an open
s'pulchre of slang, filth-and corruption. We already possess too many
of such types, types which fully jus.
lify tlie charges which have been so
often and so lately laid at the doors
of the Kootenays. It is to be hoped
that the rebuilding of Fernie,' .so
cleaned by fire, will 'tend to make
any such future charges an absolute
impossibility, for it largely depends oii
what Fernie'is, to decide what Coal
Creek will be.
I -f
-Fernie can be -the guardian angel
of. her offspring' or their curse. ' Ye
rulers of Fernie! consider yor ways
and the welfare, hot only of yourselves, bur.of.the whole.1" community, and
keep as clean,-as cleaned by. fire,
those districts wherefrom you gained
your ill-gotten revenue at the expense of manhood and honor and
which meant the moral wreck of
some, who, but for those den's of iniquity, would, instead of being in a
?l;risun.rceHr-_or pernaT5s^Tfa^eflnng
worse, have been, a credit to the country and an honor to the land of their
birth.
Your doings can help, to purify Coal
Crook. Will you make,this' your
iiim? Lest someone else' bear the
brunt of this above report and suggestions, let the ire of.your passion
fall onyour's for your" welfare. Robt.

The Creek report is destined to be
one not tb be desired this week. What
with partings, honorable and dis.
honorable, tragic and pathetic, ven.

for n return to .those surphses, Oh,
for a return to those tender se'nti.
ments which link, tho human family
into one complete whole, which feels
for each other's woo nnd can shod
that sympathetic tear, and equally
enn resent and abhor that which is
unseemly and tends to break up the
domestic circle of purity nnd love,
without which mnn ceases to he thnt.
for which hu was created, t
Notwithstanding tho laet thnt wvi-ii

and where the thing will end, good,
ui'ss alone knows, but it Is quite cvl.
dout that radical changes must soon
take place, else wns shall see a few
take place, else wn shall see n few
more empty houses, Jong fuced
hoarding bosses nud an almost de.
graph and electric poh-s. Many are
seeking ways and means to get* their
wives and .children, back home before

but our midnight' iri'aurauders, with
their ding-dong tins around, their

All kinds of
Klsewhere we publish in this issue
wliut we' would' term a very generous
Rift by the Western Canada Cement
und Coal Co, of Exshow, Attn. To"
less than ordinary observer, it may
not look like so-great a sacrifice "for
a company, so; strong- iiiiunciaily but
yet when figured-out in dollars and
cents means .'something- like $1,000.
Along with' this is' the substantial
cash donation of S-'JOO by. the clerical staff " alone which was wired,
through the Bunk oi" "Montreal at Cal
giiry. , The fact that this ■ very generous, offer on the part of the above
named company was not received pub
licly before now is to bo re-grotied.
but we think we can safely say that
their gift is more, than appreciated,
and any apparent oversight in its
acknowledgment at .this juncture has
only been ' brought about by thc
great amount of- work' our alreaii.y-
overworked' committee had and sti.I
havo in hand.
When^'we say that the^ people of
Pernio fully realize-what the already
mentioned company have done for
them  in this  instance, "can_only be.
emphasized by the fact that there is
now on the way from their plant at
Exshaw, a train load of'cement alone
for building-purposes. Mr. McAd-
nms,' thc company's representative
hero is a whole-souled fellow and is
the right man in tho right placo.

your attention ' to ? a :ittle grievance of the men on the government
road, the employees" of Mr. Dan Mc-
Xcish, So far as I can learn mysolf
we are to'have to bonrd. ourselves,'
the government paying tho cook and
cookeo, tho groceries and othor sup-,
Plies being bought by Dim McNoisli."
The mon are never allowed to seo
tho store bills for a very obvious
reason, There may be discounts off
the bills but wo wot not of it. Speaking from personal experiences, I paid
on'first, month's .board a,*5c. political J .Juno)'. Tho last month's
hoard (August) is. calculated iit this
same rate. The tents wis sleep in
are well ventilated'by routs and tears
so that wo shall get pretty wot whon

made of hay-, and brush picked up off
.thu road whoro wo can get if. Sow
ns thero is no rent'to pay for sleeping nccomnindiiiloii, it"would be Interesting to know how this financial
genius arrives nf his total of r.'ic,

ADJUSTING'INSURANCE CLAIMS
Thc manner in -which* some af thc
insurance companies nro adjusting
and settling their losses in Fernie
•docs not, in our mind speak very well
Speaking of adjustment, wo would
like to ask any' fair minded person
what adjustment is really necessary.
' How' much of Fernie was there left,
either to a privalu or business party
to require adjusting? Nothing, simply nothing, with the possible exception of n few rambling walls, all
of which will require, raising to the
ground. For those .companies, and
there are a few, be it said to their,
credit,   vi/.-*,   the  St.   Pa'ul  Insuriihcc
" Co., tho. Pacific Coast Insurance Co.,
aiid* one oc two others who settled
so promptly, we can sec for them a
good stroke of business when Fernie
is.prepared for insurance. . As for
those others, well, we con si\c . lots..
of trouble in getting money risks
written ' np and rightly so. When
will all this red-tape and don't-carc-
a-da'mn "method of' doing business
cease? . -.Just imagine an insurance
'adjuster asking one Fernie man what.
," kind     of     door    knobs  were  on tho
