He Denounces the Lemieux Measure At
', Halifax'
Hali ux, S-pt. 24.--This morning's
session of tho Dominion Trades and
Labor Congress was. taken up with
a discussion of organizers' reports
and the" Lemieux"' Act: The latter
came up in the form of a-resolution
for. jts repeal. Solicitor, O'Donogh'uc
spoke in favor of tKe act-but he said
amendments might' be desirable. The
discussion: was still on at adjournment." ■'  ' x ':'
Delegate Sherman, of Calgary, representing the United Mine Workers,
said *he would fight .the. measure to
a fhish. He, had been on ten boards
of investigation, the findings of
which wens all ..complete failures. The
minors of., British'.' Columbia, ^ said
.Mr.' Sherman, were going to ignore
the, act in future,'and go oh strike
when their grievances- were not settled .amicably between themselves
and their' employers.

Winnipeg, Man., Sept. 24.--A gang

H. L. EDMUNDS, Manager
Coal Creek.
-Scarlet fever is.still raging in'our
midst if not actually, on the increase.
The situation is becoming moire
alarming day by day and questions
are often being asked, "Why, not an
isolation hospital?" The sanitation
is very imperfect, if- not absolutely
nil and the creek is "totally .inadequate for the , carrying away of ,the
refuse matter that" is' being . deposited therein. ;
We .have ;to ..record two deaths" for
last week and it is reported- there is
very little hope for the recovery of
two or three more.'' The first victim, was a child of Mr. Robert Jones,
French camp, who *?Jnce the fire
lias lived in a state of almost destitution having been burnt out". The
other was a daughter of Mr.. Banks;
also of French Camp. We cannot
but sympathize witli our comrades
in their loss and hope something will
be done right early to stamp out
more effectively' this epidemic. '
. Several amusing stories can be. told
of how the hard toiler spends his
wage.* in search of what he, calls
pleasure. One famous Quoit player, when crosing over the deep waters
of tha cieek on a plank had'the, misfortune to overbalance his hotly, his
head being already in kingdom come,
with the result- ho avows that he
g"t out of his depth - and had to
swim  for his' life.
We congratulate'Teddy on his marvellous escape: from  certain death. '
Another certain well known" character was led into an ice cream
parlor by a good Samaritan after
having wasted U*is all at the saloon'
bar and in unconscious penitence,
exclaimed—"-Marrow! I'm, completely jiggered!" Mind with a sense of
shame wished he could be-like other
fellows. '
A certain young mnn from Michel
paid a special visit to, 10G last" Sunday
for  what  purpose,   who  can  tjl?
Rev.' Wm'. ,Boulton had an overflowing audience ia "the. Methodist,
church lust Sunday "night, the seating accommodations being, .inadequate for the crowd. He thought the
church was going to be ^doserk'd a
few weeks ago, but evidently' the
Creek  people are becoming  better.
Three? mom bars of his flock leave
tonight (Saturday, namely, Mr. "and
Mis% Rothery and R. Bam borough,
who; along with John Williams are
going to'Engla-id.
.Changes are ..taking place in ' the
mine's management,-* Mr? R. Strach-
.aiL superintendent, having "• "given
up his position.. He is nolLdecidad.

" Only about a year ago the Coal
Company brought out a large number of men. Today, 500 less men
are employed than there, were then,
und under prosont methods of working it is estimated by many of the
local exports that no improvements
can be expected for at least two
years. In the meantime who is to
be held responsible for the support
y tii.j.-.L. men who were beguiled out
here with the prospects of plenty of
work and good wages,
Feelings are running pretty high
over the unemployed and other vexed questions.
Mr. Carp, French , Camp, has received  notice  to  quit  his  house  for
reasons host known to the niii,*i-
ageinent but the bairns will have to
purchase thoir candle*** and fruits
elsewhere,
Mr, Carp was running the only
live-cent store in the town, in 'fact,
t.hi, only store "apart from Trites-
Wood, and wns a special favorite with
the children down Fivnohtown, also
to pedestrians from Firnie, who
longed for a juioy orange ou the way
after being heated by stepping the
ties. But alas, alas, if you arrive in
Coal Creek after (| p,m, you must go
wilhoul •.neb luxuries. The qui'stiou
i-i being asked "Why:*-"
If the editor" makes a "mistake folks
say he ought to be, hung biit if. a doctor makes any mistakes he buries
them'-and. the people "daisent say
nothing because doctors can read'and
write Latin. , When the editor makes
a mistake there ■ is lawsuits .- and
swearing and a big,fuss; but if a
doctor makes .one' there is a funeral,
cut flowers a'nd perfect silence. A
doctor can use a word a yard' long*
without him'-'-"or anybody knowing
what' it means";, but if ah editor'uses
one'he lias to spell it. If the doctor
goes to see another man's wife* he
charges for the visit; but if the-editor goes he gets.- a charge of buckshot, " When the doctor gets' ".drunk
it's a ease of being overcome ,by the
heat, and .if" he. dies its from'heart
trouble; when an" editor gets drunk
its a case of too much booze aind if
he dies its the jim-jams. Any old
college can make a doctor; a editor
has to.be born.^—Rapid River Rustler.

Mounted Police'in the' matter of tho
attempt to crack the Pincher Creek"

Hon, R. \V. Scott, Secretary of Stat-s, who has char ce of an immense amount of detail work involved in the
preparation of the election lists, appointment of returning officers, etc., will continue in office until the work is
finished. Consequently, the incoming minister, Charles Murphy/will not be sworn in until next week, The returning oflicers'in most of the constituencies have already been selected. With but few exceptions/they will be

rendered necessary. "
Thc government is going to tho country in confiden ce that the verdict of the electors will he a repetition of
the verdicts given in 1900 and'1904. Reports received from-every province indicate that thc outlook.for the Liberal
cause is most favorable and now that the ministers havo had a chance to feel the political pulse of their respective p'rovinces, .they are in a most optimistic mood.   .   ,-. •

thereby prepare- a. way by which we
can  in  a. very   short   time  have  an
asset that will  turn  in  dividends-, to
the   local   treasury "and   thereby   lessen taxation and at' the same time
create   working   capital   account.    If
these  properties .are   not  good   paying investments why are outside parties so keen to get them.   Why'then

0 THE   ELECTIONS
The date of the election 'is set and
October 2G is the day chosen. ■-•From
-' one end of Canada to the other the
- struggle is on, in- fact we could term
it fight, and judging- from newspaper
. report both the old party leaders 'and
candidates are at fever heat.' That
an election was in sight for some time
we are fully, a ware, but in springing
'. it as they did,' the Laurier administration has proven themselves on
this occasion to be as cunning as of
yore. It's record during last session
and especially in the closing days,
is not, to-our mind, likely to be productive as vote getters, and for that
reason" it is just as well that .record
" be  not discussed any  more than' is
"■' really necessary. The Opposition
figures out that they liave a good
case and are already figuring on a
majority in" the next Federal House.
, But" will they. -This paper let it be
understood, is not in any way .connected with either, of the old line

Elkhornr Man., Sept. 23.—While the
whole country between the main line
of the C. P. R. south to the border
has been carefully searched for the
two burglars who murdered Michael
Sugar yesterday, not the ' slightest
trace of the robbers has been discovered. All the towns along the
border, have .been notified of the crime
and $500 reward, and it, will prove
practically impossible for the fugitives to cross into the States in that
direction, In fact it is believed now
that the murderers are hiding close
to .the, :town or have managed to secret themselves in some passing train
a,nd escaped. A force of constables
guard alii trains" passing through Elk-
horn and at each point in this district foi' j onp hundred miles all suspicious persons are being forced to
give an account of themselves. It is
.thought the burglars are too .experienced to attempt to escape across
the prairie, but the posse searching
for them could not- be stood off as
they are armed with rifles and shot
guns.. The farmers in the surrounding district were out at. daylight and
would have noted two strange man
passing especially'after their attention had been called to the circumstances. . .
So come  along and try
right thero.
