To the Editor,—An "attempt is being made, to acquire - from, this city a
25-year franchise for a telephone company.   It   may   b*  the   fact   that   at
the. present the city'.would not care
to engage ■ in the . telephone business
even if it could.   But it is one   of
those  certain   things   to"expect  that
i*.i the. n?ar future * British Columbia
municipalities   will   enjoy  the  necessary  privilege  of .operating - a    telephone service, with po\ver to connect
with  other lines.   If permission   be
grant.d   to   a   company* to. come  in
and instal a system tho city's interests  should  be  most  carefully  safeguarded.   I have not, nor have many
citizens,   any'' definite ° idea   of what'
these people   from  Cranbrook  want.
If they do not specify th?ir objects
it would be right to turn down their
efforts.   To  let  a  by-law  go    before
the people without some kind of conditional   agreement  would   or  might
be suicidal.   Our franchises are worth
something.   On the hr'cls of a   great
catastrophe we find  attempts    being
made to get this, that and the other
thing.   Our people- all are very   busy
trying to get into working condition
again.   With other things they have
little time ,1od.*al.   lt is up to the
Cranbrook   company   to   state    their
case.   Let us have a public-meeting,
■at which both sides can be heard. I
want3 to discuss thi-j .very great matter.   In the absence of publicity and
a   proper  agre.nient  it  is, the  duty
of   every   ratepayer  to   voto    against
any  by-law  that- may  be. placed  before the citizens with respect to this
franchise.   Personally,   I  am  prepared   to ■ consider   any   r.asonable   proposition, but if it be intended to railroad  the .matter   1   shall  use    every
legitimate   effort   to   thwart    the   attempt.       In   the   meantime   no   ,one
should promise support to th - "measure.
The use of the streets is -so serious
that it becomes'the duty of every
good citizen to stay any untoward
attempt to get that privilege unless
the city b • sufficiently paid for their
use.. In other .cities a rental'is paid.
1 understand that the company is
willing to pay a license and tax. Is
that all? Arc wo so engrossed with
building up our city that we are
going to let everything*, else go without thought?
I am not cond .'inning the proposition of the company. I ani not in a
position to do that, as so far we are
in the dark about, it. All I want to'
see is that we. do not give'away, a
valuable franchise for a mess of
T
trees. It is more, than time we quit-
sending land-grabbers, grafter's, crQa-
tors of watered stock and bogus dividends. The place to put these fallows is at'some good hard work and
do" it' quick. Bill Davidson; Socialist ' candidate for .East Kootenay will
be her in Fernie on the 13th.,
But we are here now and you that
are voting Socialism just talk sensibly to your mat i at work, and your
neighbor at home, because we want
more votes for Davidson than we hope
to see • the other two get between
them.

poles. Unl.'S.s you liave a well- framed by-law and agreement covering
that matter you will find that telephone poles, whilst being unsightly,
are a fire risk, preventing, as they
often do, aeees.* to burning buildings.
Yes, th.'ro are many grave matters

CO-OPERATION  IN FERNIE.
Ferni.',.B. C.;Oct. 7, 1908.
S. Stanley,   -.
Manager District Ledger.
Dear Sir:      ■    ■
It' was 'mentioned. in my letter on
the above matter that 5 per cent,
would be'paid upon all shares taken
except thos? traded upon. It has
been pointed out that the way this
reads it could be easily misunderstood. Lest it be so. I would like to
state that interest bn shares is five
per cent, p.'r annum.
We. had another successful week.
Our membership is increasing nicely
and progress all around is going on
very satisfactorily. This we attribute
to the principles of co-operation being so-will known. Those who thoroughly understand the movement.are
generally always co-operatives, , and
have good reasons to be' so. To use
a phrase . uttered' by a co-operative
speaker in Gr.at Britain, Co-operation aims to do this:" "Instead of
raising on: man one hundred inches,
let us raise one hundred, men one
inch, each." That is what we propose to do in Fernie. • Mr.,Editor, we
w.dcome all to become members with
us, that all may have a share in' the
benefits which are to be realized by
such a movement. "Each for all, and
all for each." The day, as far as We
are !concerned, of making merchant
princes, should be past and wj aim
to make it so. In the transformation
there "will be nothing that, is good
lost, but much that is evil swept
away. As this is no new movement,
speaking generally, but "a tried one
which has stood well the test, wj
may point out* a few of the benefits:
Co-operation does its best to manufacture, buy and sell, pure, whole
some, unadulterated' goods, "none of
your shoddy, and sugar in sand business."
ft does its best to handle, and sell
these goods, in a busineslike manner,
so that there is as little cost as possible in the handling of . same.
It^i^Fs*itrirnTplbyees better wages.
ness in'the politics of British Colum-.
bia patriotism. This mythical wide-
riess'is advertised as a. rebuke to the
narrowness of Ontario,(partisanship.
■' British Columbia's politics has been
wide as .the extreme circumference of
the-, "bar'l* 'in which its • constituencies have gone looking for the pork
of Government favor. .Ontario may
be" a prey, to the partisanship of. prejudice or principle. Ontario's politics and politicians, at their smallest
and narrowest, are bigger and broader than the pork and patronage ..that
have. hitherto constituted the last infirmity of British Columbia's nobli
mind. * . '*.     • *   ..
. Ontario has few constituencies that
could not develop as'big and broad a
variety of politics as the Grit and
Tory partisanship' of Vancouver city
in. the present campaign. ,.
If Vancouver were really in" earnest in its alleged objection to-the
Asiatic invasion, Vancouver would
make that one question the issue of
the election..'All the faults imputed
to Joseph Martin do not' alter the
fact that he is tbe b?st fighting Par-
limentarian in Canada. A revolution'would be needed to cut Vancouver loose from all party lines and
elect the anti-Asintic "candidate, on
that-issue alone. There is no revolution in sight. Vancouver is joined to its Grit and Tory idols as truly
as the most hide-bound constituency,
in Ontario.—Toronto' Telegram.

of voters and Mr. Macdonald of (Doal
Creek, who presided, first introduced
Mr. T. J. Macdonald as the Mayor of
Rossland, B. C, and one of th> foremost' leaders of labor and trades unionism in his own     district.       The
gentleman from ■ Rossland in a very
well  thought  out' speech  dealt with
many point* of special interest to the
wage earners of this province, maintaining   throughout   that   ths   Conservative party was' the only one who
could and would, if returned to power, bring in measures for the immediate redress of the present, grievances
of labor.    On  thes.» grounds he appealed  to the workers of this camp
to register their votes for Mr. Goodeve.   On the chairman asking if any
friends   oi  the  Liberal  party  would
likrtb address the meeting, Mr. Fisher, lawyer, Fernie took upUie cudgels.
He occupied  the platform for twenty minutes giving us quotations and
.figures from the great Parliamentary
records to show that the Liberal party was the only.one who ever had
in the'hospital' suffering chiefly from
injuries to his skull-but his many
friends will hi pleased to know that
he is progressing favorably.   .
A imblic political meeting to' further   their interests    in the present
election campaign- was held by  the
Liberal party in 'the Club  Hall on
Thursday evening, Octob r 1st.    Mr
A. Eerridge of Fernie, occupied the
chair and was supported on the platform by the Liberal candidate _ Mr.
Smitli-Curtiss  and  Mr.- F.  J.- 'Dean,
of-Nelson.    The last named was the
opening speak :r and expatiated fully
on  tlie' claims  of his  party  to   tbe
votes of, the' workers of this country,
claiming that'the Liberal party in the
past had proved they were the real
party of progress.    On the courteous
invitations of the .chairman Mr. Macdonald of' Coal Cr:ek,     representing
the local " Conservative   organization
addressed  the. large  gathering.   -His
interesting' remarks on th? imigration
question given with many quotations
from the speeches of the leaders of
both existing   parties   were  listened
to  with   spell-bound  attention . • and
were at times heartily applauded. On
tlie conclusion  of Mac's spe-ch  the
chairman called upon the candidate
to address the meeting.       He     had
scarcely risen to his feet when Mr,
Wiliiim Evans of the' local Socialist
party proceeded-from the audi:ijce to
the platform and demanded from the
chairman   the  privilege,   usually   accorded to opposing parties and which
had already been given the Conservatives.    For 'a tim? it seemed     as
though the. chairman's intention was
to withhold this and it looked as if
lie were determined to put Mr. Smith-

A Slav Socialist organizer adressc-d

was given in Slav. In Jiis closing *re-

There are now two large boats on

to put this extra boat ou tho lake.
It only shows thc bad spirit of the,
Banff people. Mr, Stanley has- always
done his best to please, th? people of

for the alloted time of twenty minutes he kept thi boys in merriment

was listened to patiently and intelligently for almost two hours.      He
spoke briefly on many'matters of natural   importance and  of things  affecting the British Empire generally,
but most of his speech was devoted
to matters which, as' he himself .said,
were of direct interest to.the workers of Coal Cre?k.   He handled the

the audience  was' strongly in  favor
of 'Billy' and once more he got his
opportunity tb carry our minds to the
comic side of politics.   On this occa
sion he wax?d too warm, for when
the chairman reminded him" that he
had already spoken five, minutes beyond the limit, he expressed his intention of speaking as long as he liked.   However,  he   submitted  to  the
clamor "of the" audience to give way
but promised us at an early date an
allnight sitting.       Mr.  Smith-Curtis
expounded his views at length on the
general aspect of political affairs. He
regretted that much of his time would
have to be taken up in refuting what
he contended were  false' statements
about his political career in so far as
thc interests of labor wer3 concerned,
which had been made from the platform by his opponent.     He claimed
to liave sprung from' the "0 laboring
class and stated that anything he now
possessed was due to' his own, indi-

quartz, miners and in passing remind-
workers for the eight-hour .day     for
ed his hearers that this was the first
step towards the eight hour day being obtained by coal min.*rs in B. C.
He further  claimed  that when  the
eight-hour day for quartz ,min*rs be-
cmne law, the mine owners formed an
amalgamation hoping by such influence to hinder such a law coming'into
operation.   He claimed that h> could
now look back with pride on the fact
thnt  he   was   one  who   successfully
[ought and smashed up thnt amalgamation.   Speaking on th'e immigration
question he asked  the men present
,to belie-v? that his party wero just

desires on this matter which so directly  concerned them  in the party
to which Mr. Goodeve belongs.   He

HOW  TO  VOTE1.
Tlie elections - for B. C: are set for
the 12th of Noveb^r, just one montht
from  now.
It is only a short time, but sometimes rushed elections are more' pr:-
forable.tha:i delayed ones. The present election is going to be a sharp,
short smd we hope a very d .cisive
one for the workinpnien. There are
three men out in this riding, a Liberal, a T.'iV' and :i  Socialist.
Davidson should receive the vote
of the' workinpinen, as h ■ is their
only friend, and they need many just
at the present time.
lt is al! very line for the Liberals
or Conservatives to     launch    "forth
with "this -.caiKlnl," and ".that land
'steal,"   but   they  are  both   alike     as
far us ill1 workingmen iu\; concerned.
The. workingman wants an independent friend, und it must be a man
who is not allied with either of the
old parties. Davidson is this man
for the Fernie riding, and a vote for
him on the 12th of next month will
'mean a vote in the rigid direction.

appreciates  ilrf  newspaper only  afUr
it iias ceased publication,  ''few towns
realize  what  a  force  for  progress   a
newspaper is.       This is abundantly
evident   in   the   m *agre   support oaccorded  many of the local papers in
British Columbia. . A newspaper is a
public institution and- in modern life
is a necessity.   Yet, many of the^ supporters of a paperfeel when they pay
for an adv rtisemeht in its columns,
or the yarly subscription, that they
are   making' a   charity   contribution
to1 the editor,- As a rule, both the advertiser   nnd   subscriber   get  a   good
deal move than they pay for.   Tlie. editor is constantly being • called upon
for favors for which it nev.'J* occurs
to the recipient he should pay.   Few
communities ever think they Hhould
contribute  ns  a   whole,  to  the support of the local paper, though it may
week  after  week  d vote  columns  to
the spread of information about its
district—information that goes broadcast to the world, and whicli is of inestimable value to the town.   Hut if
a grant of a few hundred dollars wero
mad •  to  the paper  for this  service
there would likely be an immediate
outcry against graft.
People who complain . about tho
smallness or inefficiency of their local paper should ascertain to what extent it is supported, Every editor
worth hiH salt wants to produc • a
big pnpi r and a good one, but no
publisher can give more than he gets.
If hiH support jh weak, his paper cannot he u big one. One can tell nt a

NEW   G,N.R.   LINE.
To Be Built from Noycs to Winnipeg
At Once.
Emerson, Oct. 7.—Twelve surveyors are here with equipment to'locate th,' new line of the Great Northern from Fiiner-ion to Winnipeg. They
started in at Noycs, which is tbe
union depot, for I he Great Northern
and Soo Line, to stake out the proposed route. From Noyes the stakes
! 'ad along the west of the C.r.R.
track through Mayor Wright's field,
and will probably parallel" the C, P,
R. into the city. The new lino will
give, the Great Northern entry into
Winnipeg over its own road, and ,so
sever its connection with the CN.R,-
It mny result in tlie erection of a
large union depot by the C.I'.R, and
G.N.R. here.
