A stabbing affray, at Krag, a station

Krag hotel, where Wallace was indulging in rather strong language, and
on being called upon to desist by Mr.

a knife, inflicting three serious injuries, one lunge almost reaching the
juglar. Wallace made good his es-'
cape across the lines, and is possibly
by this time out of easy reach ofthe
law.
' The victim of the assault is doing
nicely and unless untorseep complica-

Wallace referred-to above will be
remembered by Fernie citizens as be-
ins engaged in the "Travelling Lunch

he is around .Gateway.-

To the Editor of the Ledger. ■..
Dear Sir: In regard to the telephone
question, and the vote that i". to he
taken on Monday I would like to
give a few hints to the vntov.3, so that
I hoy will, understand the position the
citizens, and more especially the merchants "will bejn if they decide io
turn down the offer made by the
company that wishes, to obtain . the
franchise,, or I should rather say the
opportunity to run a.telephone for the
benefit of the people of Fernie and
vicinity.'
first of all,.I would like to pout
out that a while ago, Mr. Hawthorn-
waite tried to get a Municipal Owner

Ja{ • cere sympathy of all citizens of: Fer-

the bill was defeated. Next, another

■goes'to show''Mr. Editor; 'that It will
bo impossible'to get a bill through so
that our city would be able to own
and run our own telephone system, so
that is one point wo must consider
very strongly before we decide to vote

" This offe rmay not last long, as tho prico may be advanced after

easy payments are not offered by any other such company. Write

: . ■' FROM  PROPERTY.   .-.-.-•
Word has just been^ received of a
new, strike made in the old Reco mine
Sandon • camp, which will enrich the
Italian lessees and revive faith in the
district.1   -       '.. " ; "
It is a long time since the Reco shipped" any ore, though it was one of'the
best' piope'rties of Sandon, and the Italian miners leased it from two Spokane men, J. Karris and F..Kelly who
had";failed'to find ore In shipping'
quaatities. ," *,
The Spokane-men have already of-,
fer.ejj the lessees $50,000 fori, their
bar-jam "as It stands,'but as tnere -is
■ understood to be about $100,000 worth
of ore in-sight, it1 is likely that the
Italians will stick to"their lease,and
realize something like a fortuno out
of, the property.
Tho Italians struck .ore almost Immediately after they, took oyer,;';' the
claim" but said nothing/about it,until
they had a considorabel amount ,;.ex-
posud. , Tho peoplelof Sandon are do-
lighted with the strike as ;lt revtyes
faltii- in a camp which has of lato
been declining. :"'

started out. " ..-'....'
What are the objects whicli "we. desired that-have been accomplished?

burden for every person working In

,We,'wilI take the women...Are-there
any at'.wor&fn the mines to-day,? The
answer'to, the (question .must be/'No."
If tfiero are"not, what is[*the reason?
It is not far to seek) trades unionism
was flatfooted in opposition to it, and
by. persistent and consistent agitation,
abolished, the evil.' . .'"..' , .
. Then what about the boys? Do they
go to the mines at tho tender age of
seven or eight yeqrs any more? Do
their parents have, to carry- them to
the mine in tho .morning, and set them
down.beside a trapdoor, and then get
them and carry' them home at night,
for fear thoy would fall asleep on the
way homo? - This was done in scores
and hundreds of cases before the inauguration of the trades union movement, and would bo done to-day' but
for it.   t .       '     „ '      • '    '
' How many of the boys are there ih
the inincs to-day, who can and-will
contemplate tho fact that' there were
thousands' of boys in the mines less
than fifty years "ago" who never saw
the light,'of day, .except on Sunday,
from October to March of thc following year,,an'd'very 'frequently they
were too tired'on'Sirnay to get' out1-
of bed in order that they might'see
tne sunlight.
The boyofilo-day owes.much more
to the'trades union movement than he
ever dreamed of.' Instead of going to
the mine at, say eight years of* age,
ho is not allowed lo go until ,the is
twice that age in several ol the States
—and then for eight-hours*only. Then
it was from six a.m. until six p.'m.,
without an intermission for a peek into his dinner pail,'and"if he had'the
time" it was not in a few cases only to
find; a piece of bread, ancV molasses,—
sometimes - without', the molasse*s.' - v-
' Now, while tils' lot' is not tlie best,
he goes to the mine at 7 pirn.;- and
finishes'at 3.30 p.m..-.' Now'he, does

THE ELECTIONS.
•».
'ex.
In connection with the election re-
.- turns where there was a Socialist candidate in the held (ho result was very
gratifying, although the- various candidates did not succeed iu -..getting
in.
The gratifying fact lies in the enormous vote polled in each district." If
you compare the result with any previous election you will at once seo
that there was a very much larger
Socialist vote polled than at any previous election.-
That is one fact that Is going   to
make .'the politicians at Ottawa sit. up
and stare.     They will have to come
to the conclusion that the new party,
the party representing freedom for the
,,vast army' of toilers  throughout tho
"   universe, is gaining'and gaining very
fast, and that they must reckon with
them in their future calculations.
This is the reason why we, say that
-   the. result was very gratifying.    An-
other feature in connection with the
" election Is that the majority of. the
votes polled for the Socialist candidates were-all purely Socialist votes,
. Why was this?    .Why.did not , the
labor, men "come out and-help fho Socialist vote? Because in-most instances
they were afraid of their.-Jobs., • Why
were they afraid of.their-jobs?,—What
: intimidated them?     The simple rea-
'.Tspn is that most of' the'* bos'scB *- are
^capitalist politicians;.find-besides con-
■  trolling t-he men that; do' iheir work
■•".and'produce, their.- profits, rhey   also
■. control the government. " Therefore,
If a voter was bold enough to   come
.' out flat footed and vote according to
■his conscience,; he  had-to take"; the
' risk of being "laid of* through shortness of work. "'^Aiid-'sooner than, take,
that chance he would, sell, .bin**'ioui;
and see the only policy that would
eventually unloosen the bonds of sla-
' very .'that'"bind "hlih,'' "go-"down To" de-
 loat',—aud'a-tlieiiu.he—iwill tucnlTaLbuiid.
,-arid accuse .the government they themselves authorized and aided ^and abetted, of "being a govornment of graft.
.   .Of course we, would not for^a-minr,
ute. attempt to deny that the,gpvern-
,' inent Is a government of graft.   Both
, governments have been accused of;be-
Ing that; each candidate accused the
other of graft, and we would hate to
, step in and say that tho accusations
aro. false.; ■    ■
What havo the now party been accused of?  ...
■, Just one thing—and they are accus:
isd of being alive and daring lo Inter-,
fore in tho political sphere, .That
in, thoir ono and only fault, nnd thc
mighty politicians nro finding out
that thoy aro no small factor In the
political arena, and thnt they ftiust bo
reckoned with.

DO AS^YOU PLEASE
The worklngman who says he will
not join a labor union because < he
wants to be independent and do as
lie pleases has not learned to think
.very.deeply on the-things that affect
him economically. He simply echoes
the Voice of the selfish employer. ■
Independence, is a precious term to
the true American. But he does not
always,understand what it means..
A man is truly independent when
he stands for that which,is best for
himself, his family and his country.   \   .('' *     :-     -

London, Oct. 29—Five thousand
spectators'to-day witnessed a fine lacrosse match between the Canadians
and the North-"of England, with the
tine play mostly on England's side.
The Canucks, especially after Gorman
scored the first goal In a minute and
a 'half, thought, they had a, cinch
en the game, for instead of following
up with their rapid and quick passing
the Canadians lagged and failed to
respond with any brilliant plays.
When the first, twenty minutes ended the score stood Canadians two and
England one. '   . -•
. England then went to work in dead
earnest and showed some fine, form,1
in sprinting, and outran the Canucks, and had their passing been on
a par with their sprinting, they would
have had more than' four goals to
their credit at half time to' the Can-
udlis three.     ' *'''-.
Excitement was at high pitch and
the third quarter England scored another goal, and when the scores were
W-Flast^equailed-'it-looked-as-though-
the Canadians were all In.
The last ten minutes-was well contested by both, the teams but Gorman
scored for Canada and a few minutes
afterward- Ihe whistle, blew and the
Canadians were safe.
It. was not exactly o, lady like game
but there was no kick coming against
tho referee.
