Says the Men j
Arc Not 3uitjd ,    !
F.   H.- Sherman;  nf  Alberta,    snid
the people ofthe West hnd had some
experience of tlie kind of-rnen brought
out by th.'. Salvation Army.    It had
been fount! out n some of our mines
that if a mn-.i is brought out by thc
Salvation  Army  it   is  a   bar  to  his
employment—they too often are physically unfit. They are worn out and
what the employer.:, themselves want
is not men worn out by the employ^
evs'of the old land.   They want pretty  stnng  serfs.    He  desired   to  put
himself on ivcird as saying that Unpeople of the West, the trades union-1
ist-s of the. West, are 'not opposed to
wholesome immigration..    What    w
want, 'though,   is   not    more    immigrants but men who will make good
Canadians. . We  are   ready   for  good
British   immigrants,   suited    to . thc
country,   under "'proper  auspices,   instead of the Doukhobois and Dream-,'
ers who have been brought out. We
are not opposed to immigration when
there is work for the men to do. But
this condition  does not ..prevail now.'
.The.-situation _is-alaun in "—in—the—cities,
and in the towns of-the West/— men
out of  work.    The  Salvation    Army
must be careful in regard to this im-
-migration—indiscriminate      immigration—even   to .-the  land.    We  object
to the Salvation Army continuing'in
this work and we object to the policy
of the government in their immigra-
i tion methods.   (Cheers,)

is well known t that the' "possibilities
and impossibilities, of forming such
a society liave been considered by a
largo number of persons (especially
those who have been Co-operators in
Great Britain) for a long time.
A fe wmonths ago a committee was
appointed, to go into ' the matter,
to find out in what position we would
be in relative to the laws of the Dominion, and Province, the wholesale
and loealtrading interests, and what
reception we should meet' with from
the people of this District.
It was found that in the first two
instances our position would be favorable, in the latter more than fa*
vornble, we found the residents 'of
this place were 'pleased to khpw that
it was our intention to start a store
in Fernie. We drew up n copy of rules, were registered asa .Society under
the Industrial and Provident Societies
Act.
We nest tried to.find a location for
our store that we might start at once
but were not successful at that time;
so we put the matter before the min-'
ers" union which body was intent on
building a home for their union, u
place for recreation,' reading aiid
games for its members, and other
working men, and an excellent Opera
House' for the city, and they decided
at the same time to add four' excellent pail on tlie front of their large
buildintr for stores, the same to be
rented' to the Co-operative Socijty.
Our Society' was retarded by the
fire as most other things have liven.
, But the past few Veek3, the committee has been busy making a canvas of the District telling of the.
movement, etc.", and have had splendid results in their efforts. People
have taken shares to the amount of
hundreds," fifties, twenties, fens and
five dollars. .    '
We have employed our manager,
T. .C. Hicks,", of Lethbridge." He
comes with a- good experience of the
business and good references, is now
employed at, thn "work in the above
town, but will be with ^ us in'a few
days.    When  becomes  we  hope.to
and Jasr^Bower*-; of Red yDeer, -looking"; into the operation of eastern'pork
packing plants.   B .*;*;  ■ -%
Mr. Harrison stated that/the "Members of the'.commission .''met in^To-
ronto; and visited'the plants,'there,
including ■Davies' big pork-packing
plant.'-The}' also 'inspected the plants
in Collingwood, ; .Brentford, London;
Hamilton, Ottawa;-; Buffalo, Chicago,
and Winnipeg. In Chicago they visits
cd Swift's, big plant'and stock" yards;
and were very courteously treated by
the officials of that company, .who'
gave them all. the information they
required...-.*■ *''-;"!■'.'■ .- ■ - - ' '.- ,.;• '.*,■ •'
■\.Mr. Harrison seated that the. .'cooperative packing plants in Ontario
had not proved^very successful,' as
the/farmers would- not support theni
.as they should.' Pork in Ontario ia
very scarce at the present time, and
the price-'is 6 1-2 and-7'cents per
pound. Among nall the smaller plants
they had visited; in Ontario Mr. Harrison said he did not see one to, equal
the plant recently established iii Edmonton. . - ■
The commission have how practically .concluded ' their investigations,
and will prepare a report to be presented to the .provincial government
onjhe pork industry in Alberta, and
tha advisability, of establishing _ a
government packing plant in the province.'  '. ,      , ■  '/....,
Mr. Harrison stated that the people
hejhad met while-away "were" deeply
interested in Edmonton and this part
of 'Alberta. The Twin City exhibit
created a very favorable impression

•San Francisco, Sept. 30.—Henry T.
Bosnian,' Hong Kong';. miner and a
legislative member of the British col«
ony, has practically decided to aban*
don the case of an appeal to the, Department of Commerce and Labor in
the,,effort to secure a reversal of the
decision made in his case. He' landed in this city a fow days ago with
two wives. The attorneys, it is said,
have advised that an appeal would
be useless.'1 He is still in a local hospital under bonds to appear when the
physicians consider him sufficiently
recovered from an attack of illness
to withstand the return voyage to
Hong, Kong,   .
His defence of bigamy is based on
tlie custom ot the Chineso, from which
this religion in order that a family
name may live forever.' In my own
case the taking of a second wife was
suggested by my first wife. The position of my second wife is just as
sacred as that of the first. In fact,
my second wife, is revered by my 'first
as the ope to whom honor is due for
her perpetuating the family name.",

"    THEY MUST BE  MOVED.   '
The citizens of Fernie Annex( one
of the main residential parts of our
city,are very much incensed at the
authorities for allowing the- women
of ill repute to build ■ in their corner
of the city.
We think, that it is an insult to
tho large number of people who are
building there, ,that these' women
should be put in such a place. If it
is necessary to have, these women in
our midst at all (which' is' questionable) there arc places where they
could be put where they would be
out of the  way.
One place that, they must not be
allowed to .settle in is the Annex,
Just imagine the idea of them being
right 'at your dpor, and your children
nnd wives to see and hear from day
to day.
It is a disgrace to the authorities
and neither the citizens nor the Ledger will stand for it.
The first issue of the ' Hosmer
Times at the hand of B. F. Lester,
late of Fernie, is to hand and is of' a
prosperous appearance. The ads. are
neat and the type faces well selected,
■ aud taken all together is ii' creditable
number. The policy of the. paper is
for local sentiment, while politics aro
allowed to run their weary way. The
quill-driver has a smattering of
poetry and may in time equal the ef*
,'forts of the ."Crow's Nest Bard"—
•with  apologies to J".  Peck McSwain.
Mr. Laborer, if you prefer your
boss' wife and babies,'wearing better ' clothes, eating better food, and
living in more comfortable homes
than your own wife,and babies yours
is the privilege of voting the Conservative or Liberal ticket. What are.
you going to do about it? You know
who the ticket is in East Kootenav.

Hyderabad, India, Sept/ 30.—The
catastrophe that overwhelmed Hyderabad, the capital of the Nizam's dominions, and left i:i its trail thousands of dead, was one of thc most
sudden and appalling of many visitations on India. The, Nizam's dominions are many tanks0 or. lakes,, the
largest of which communicates with
the river Muzi. Tremendous rains
caused the lake to overflow into the
river, which .in turn, burst its banks.
A flood of water sixty'feet high swept
down upon the. city,  carrying every
thing before it, and'completely "devastating several quarters ofthe city.
Thousands of tons of,, water .crushed
in a dense mass-against tiie housts,
burying under the, ruins the natives
to a number,that'cannot be even estimated. After the flood, subsided a
vast quagmire of black" mud, out of
which arises' a poisonous stench, is
all.that marks the spot where thousands . of people lived.
Tom Cavan, a popular C.P.E. conductor,'' was in the city on'Monday. '
