Ottawa, Nov. G—A b.*vd flro is raging*
at Pembroke... It broke out at four
this morning, and the National Manufacturing company,*,a big concern, is
goiie. .Several hotels and banks are
destroyed,' and the lire was still raging-at 11 o'clock.
It is rumored that-both tho Quebec
and other banks have suffered. No
fatalities are reported so far. Detail's
are meagre o\ving_l'o" the difficulty of
communication. Both Arnprior *and
Renfrew, lire brigades are on the
scone.     ,, .    ;, ■ ,      ,
Ottawa brigade was asked to go —
but was unable.' '.'Tho loss0 will he
heavy. .u Forty' buildings arc reported
as already destroyed.- ...
The fire originated at- 4.30 a.m. in
tlio foundry of thoDNatlonnl Manufacturing company, from which it rapidly
spread up Main.-street as far as the
Manitoba- hotel. •■ -In. the vicinity „of
tlioLLcland hotel the fire was checked.
At the Manitoba hotel the-fire was
apparently "under"control at" G o'clock!
but 'at ^6.30 it broke "out again In a
wooden building, arid. In a' boat, house
and spread'along the river front up to
the new bridge'and'opposite the post
office.-."'It.swept to\a-butcher shop In
between, two large stores and'11 thence
around- and. .caught1 on. the wooden
work of the .bridge and back towards
the Copeland house.  / " *>*_

brick stores was on fire and passage
across the sU;eet was stopped. Then
It leaped the street and'caught In' a
grist mill oh the 3ame side of' the
river,-' and- then -asuft swept back to
wards the rivor it,became..evident,to
the fighters that tho Copeland Company would go. Reports say that, tho'
Copeland has been destroyed also tho
Monroe block', aiid that about forty
residences In all were burned1.
A  Liberal  meeting    was  nold    in
Bruco's hall on tho 3rd inst., to further the candidature of Smith Curtis.
The hall was well packed, even standing room being   .limited.     A large
number of the audience was composed of Socialists.     The speakers for
the evening were Duncan Marshall of
Edmonton, and Dr. Clarke, M. P., i'or
Red Deer.     Mayor Tuttle, who acted
as   chairman,  in  a  few  words    said
that  he  was  no  speaker  and    they
could not expect any speech from him
and he apologized for the' absence of
lion.' J. A. Macdonald, leader of the
opposition- at Victoria, aiid S. S. Taylor, K. C, mayor „of Nelson, who had
missed the train.    He invited any opposition  speakers to  come and  take
a scat witli thorn'on the platform and
in response Charles O'Brien, organlz--
er for the S. P. of C, came forward.
Duncan Marshall was the first speaker, and as is usual with Liberal speakers, he pointed out the great prosperity-under Liberal rule since-1896, the
most .prosperous ten years in th&.his-
tory of Canada,' and .in fact of.'   the
whole, world, and he compared,, them
with the. period .under    Conservative
rule'.     Conservatives,' he, said,   would
say that it was due to natural causes,
but he  denied '.this.      In the      iirst
place when'the Conservatives'were in
tlioy placed high' protective tariffs on
all foreign goods, coming into ■■ this

WON FIGHT WITH
KNOCKOUT BLOW
The Calgary News; has the i.ollo*.*f'
ing to say of the fight between Lauder, and Kearns.
•Yes, it's true all light/*'"..^ ■■-»' ,
. -Lauder won on u knock out intir-S
ninth.
At least he put Jack Kearns down'
for "the count. Whether Kearns took
the count to save himself from further punishment or .whether he was
too frail to stand the punch that Lauder sent in on his jaw is still another
matter. It - certainly was not , a
sledge hammer blow that did the
trick. And yet he seemed badly dazed. .
Lying on the floor stretched at his
full length the referee counted him
and for a couple of seconds after he
made' no attempt -to move. When he
was finally dragged lo his feet he
staggered from the centre to tho^
west side of the ring, and fell iu a
heap across the ropes. Willing ai.d
friendly hands went to his aid nnd lie
was assisted to his corner," and re-
' vived sufficiently to walk to tbe,
dressing room,'
There was  absolutely no  question
as to whoso fight it was, and     the
crowd which filled every seat in tho
Lyric theatre, wildly cheered tho little Scotchman, who thus    decisively
added another .victory to his already
long list.
Kearns'was not in Lauder's class,
, and not nearly such a game fighter as
'   Eddie Merino.
,,    It was not a particularly. exciting
* exhibition at any period, Lauder all
through having slightly the. best of
the fight. -.
Kearns managed to floor Billy by a
a swat on the. side of the head just
before the close of the first round,
but' it did not appear to have done
-<hlm much-damage for he was up in
an instant and mixed things up in
lively style before the gong sounded
for tho round.
The   end of the second round was
also fairly interesting, the combatants
mixing things up pretty well.    In the
'  sixth Kearns tapped Billy's claret and
floored him again.   -He fouled Lauder
... -
and Lauder a few seconds later fouled him, but- the referee allowed' this

Very exciting, and the ninth put a finish to it much sooner than was expected. * •
, , Kearns deliberately fouled Lauder
•by hitting in the,, clinch several times
in the ninth apparently with the object of losing on a foul, and saving his
reputation as much as would bo possible.
He was all In and seemed to be perfectly well awaro of tho fact that he
could not. last very much longer. The
referee separated them several times
and appeared to hesitate sllgtly as
to what-should bo dono. Each timo

FELLOWSHIP
'-(Toronto Globe.)      <">*
The landowning and other wealthy-
classes of Britain have embarked1 in
a systematic crusade against Socialism, and trained speakers and writers will be' employed to stem the pre-,
sent strong current of opinion.-  The
leaders-iri this  new  movement■ evidently fear that by tacitly and actively encouraging the  Socialist propaganda  during  (he  last  twenty  or
more years  they have ■ been  sowing
dragons' teeth.     The all ruling' majority may. at. any time lay predatory
hands on'private property on a gigantic scale.     Recent support, of Socialism by the ruling classes in "Britain began in the early eighties.   Up
to that time the basic claim, of   the
economist's, that man is, entitled' to
what he1 produces  - or  earns under
freedom of contract,    was advanced
against every Socialistic demand for
an equal division of the products of
labor.     This is the instance of property  inherent    in1    man.      Herbert
Spencer, in strengthening the cause
of individualism, appreciated and declared that a freedom of contract involved    a   recognition    of all men's
equal right of access to the earth's
surface.'   This■ feature of his reasoning was kept in the background until brought forward by the" Irish land
agitation, and by American writers,
who  devised ' practical  schemes    for
the application of his principles. The
landed class-found their titles assailed, and could find no. reassurance in
Blackstone or any other authority on
British law.   In the alarm which was
concealed under an attitude of-superior concern, they began to tolerate
Socialistic; arguments - formerly    denounced.
To the' untrained mind the Socialistic promise of a share of the wealth
of the -rich appealed  more strongly

For quite a number of years a gang
of clever swindlers in Spain has been
more or less successful in defrauding
people In this country but of largo
sums of money. The dally papers
have exposed the scheme from time
to time, but It would appear that the
swindlers nevertheless succeeded in
finding credulous parties, who became
their victims.
In fact, quite recently an unusually
largo number of such cases havo been
brought to our attention, and ln several cases, through our excellent connections abroad, wo have boen ablo to
frustrate tho plans of the swindlers,
and to return to tho victims thoir
monoy. Tho following extract from
nn Inland newspaper oxplalns the
methods omployod by them vory perfectly:

than the ^scientific logic of the'individualists. -
,The working classes, encouraged to
build air castles,' forgot "their supposed clairil to the land, and- a real
menaco to the existing order of economic conditions in Great Britain was
safely tided over.- Now the air castles seem to be taking on definite
form nnd the builders have various
schemes for entering into and possessing the same. The agitation for
en equal or a more nearly equal division of the continuous products of
human labor Beem to receive more
roady acceptance with each passing
year. Although with scarcely an exception the leading Socialistic propa-,
gnndlsts unconsciously reveal In
themselves the dominance of that
jonse of property which', their philosophy Ignores, their agitation Is continually gaining strength. It is ridiculously simple and Its promises are
unlimited. That It is regarded as a
menace Is shown by tho organization
of opposing forces,
Advocates of tho exist Ing order of

DRAMATIC: CONFESSION
Detroit Man Tells. How he Killed his
Half brother
. Detroit, Nov, 4—John' Kurka,. made
a startling confession of how he killed
his half brother, Anthony Schultz, a
week ago and then hauled his body
in a .dump wagon across tho "city to
the spot in tho western part'where
it was found.
The police had dressed Kurka in
the clothes which he had worn- on the
day of the. tragedy and had driven
him to the spot to seo if several wit-
,, nesses, could identify him ns the man
thoy had seen driving the dump wagon shortly after the da"y of the tragedy. .   ',"
After he had finished the gruesome
task and had been identified by several persons Kurka broke ■ down and
admitted that he had killed his half
brother. >   .    ■ ;   -
.   He" said that Schultz and his   wife
were quarrelling and, when . he inter-
■  fered In the matter Schult'',   attacked
him.
"Then I,.let him have it wltlm a
■hatchet," said Kurka, "his wife and
* -1 loved each other and we wanted
him' out of the way. '.Mrs. Schultz
helped me to- put the body in the
dump wagon and I drove it way. I
feel better nbw. . I..was "haunted- by
Schultz'ever since the ■ minute I kill-,
ed him." '    J,
KILLED BY A TREE BRANCH
Says A. B. Thomas in The Camrose
Mail: _ ,
"We liave asserted that,the Liberal
government <is: getting desperate, and
the Liberals say'they'are not,*' now
we will prove'that we' are right. If
the Liberal .government'are not desperate why then did the Hon. Prank,
Oliver write to 'Mr. Sherman, the Socialist candidate in Calgary.- to the
effect "that he', Frank Oliver, would
see that Mr'.; Frank Sherman would
get a Sonatorship if he would step
out of the contest. in.- Calgary,. and
thus'give the Liberal nominee a better' chance to bo elected:
Now these aro fauls we are stating, aud Hon. Frank Oliver' and the
Liberal party and their papers can
deny this all they like, and if 'It Is
up to us to prove tho statements we
make, we are prepared to do so.' Our
address is Ihe same old stand.
And not only is the Minister of the
Interior so wrought up and excited
and driven lo desperate means to
counteract the great, popular ' wave
that is sweeping over Canada, but lo
and behold our old friend -Charlie
Cross, the attorney general for tho
province of 'Alberta, he likewise has
written Mr. Frank Sherman offering
him anything if he will only step out
aud leave the field to their own pet
nominee, Dr. Stewart, so that he can
have a chanco to, get the best of the
present popular member,'M.1 S. McCarthy.' .   '        \    . "'"'
But.this is not all. Our .dear old
friend from Medicine Hat,- the Hon.
Mr. Fi'nlay, the Minister of -Agriculture, who judges cattle, pigs and
horses, he who measures the- size of
agricultural products, and tests the
pureness of home'made butter, and
home made, eggs at tlio numerous
country' fairs—-the'* well paid servant
of .the peopie, takes-his pen in hand,
and writes on government .paper-to
the same Frank. Sherman, urging1 him
with all the eloquence possible, ■ and
says he thinks he sees . an opening
for a wonderful career ihsthe' govern-
-ment- employee if he,. Mr. Sherman,
would only accept' it.-' 7

~ The following letter by one * . of
the strongest Labor leader's on., the
American continent comes equally as
opportune to.us in our-political, fight
here1 as its did-to the workers of:the
United States:' : '* "*-.'-,.
7'Men of Labor j Lovers of Human
Liberty: -' '   „ ■.
-You: are believers .In.the- form of
government described by.:the immortal Lincoln as government. by the
people, for the people, you 'would', not
be true 'Americansvif you' were not.
This form of' government—the democratic form—is a government by law
and is the direct opposite of the despotic form, which is government by
discretion.
, Government by injunction is gov-
eminent by discretion—in >other and
plainer words, despotic. You will
not'willingly assist in destroying our
prosont form of -government in the
United States and I therefore assume
that you would have the Issue in
this campaign ■ stated' plainly and
simply in order that you might do
your duty.  •
Thc fact is that the judiciary, in-
ducon-by corporations'and trusts aiid
protected by the Republican party,
is, ...step by step, destroying government, by law, and substituting therefor a government by.judges who determine what in their opinion is
wrbiij*-; what in their opinion is evidence; who in their opinion is guilty,
and what in their opinion the punishment shall be. It is sought to mako
the judges irresponsible ^despots, and
by controlling them to use this despotism in the interests of corporate
power. •■
.,'■■, ^ ...
In order to do this it was necessary
to proceed secretively .hi order to pi1^-
■vein opposition becoming too strong,
some' strained  "justification" for    il
had to be sought in the, constitution
of. the Unitod States.     The conslitv-
tiou provides that judges shall have
jurisdiction in law .and ejuity and by
.extending the jurisdiction of   judges
"sitting in equity" all safeguards that
were erected to protect human liber-
■•■■.(.
iy. arc.swept aside.,    •
•  Instead of the-.accuser proving   the
guilt of the accused, the accused .is
compelled to' show cause -why he be
hot punished;       ' " ^
The absolute power in specific in-
submitted, to theV;party iri power.—
the Republican, party—in 1906-Labor's Bill of. Grievances and '„ respectfully urged.hat neces sary elgislation
10
be enacted—nothing was done. .    ■
Injunction after injunction was issued, forbidding "men to assist" each
other, to give information' to each
other,' and. to do in unionism those
things which it "was the undisputed
right of the individual to do for himself. .        ' '-,.-

tho local situation is recognized by

stances, of,a" judge sitting in—ciiaiT-"
eery, (which is, the real name , for
equity)J!is gradually' extended over
the several fields of human activity,
and a-revolution .is perfected. We
.theii have despotic ■ government- by
the judiciary In place of p;ovot*nnient
of, for and by the people.- .
This revolution has'already progressed very far,.; It .is depriving the
.workers of thoir rights as citizens, by
forbidding the. exercise of freedom of
-speech, freedom, of tho press, freo-
dom of assembly and the right of- petition, if, iri tho opinion of the judgo,
the oxorclso of. these , liberties may'
work injury to; some .trUBt ;or corpora-
lion.' , It is applicable to tho worker
to-day and will inevitably bo made
applicable to the business man at a
later period,
Tho progress1 bf this revolution has
to stop.
We muBt .return to government by
law In all InstancoB whoro tho revolution l.as been successful.
This virus-und poison hns not only
attacked tho judicial branch of government, but has in sovoral instances
entered upon tho legislative flold, hy
milking laws which may bo onforcod
by equity procosB'-'-that Is, tho Judge
is by this law authorized lo:
Disregard all accoptod ruJes of procedure and of evidence, to
DlsponHo with Jury trial and nub-
iitltuto insload of tjiouo safeguards'of
what Ib right.
It was with thoso serious thoughts
lu mind that La'.or's representatives
*. •,
In the , meantime the dispute between the'• hatters','union and Mr,
Loewe of- Danbury Conn., was in*/pro-
gres's from one court to another, until it reached' the United States supreme Court, where it' was.-; decided
that":     .
Organizations of working men and
working women, for mutual aid and
assistance, are illegal combinations,'
in restraint, of trade under the so-
called Sherman anti-trust law. •
That any one injured thereby may
recover three fold damages from tub
organizations, and if they havo not
the means then the individual members thereof. Between this law, enforceable by the equity process,"ami
the'extension of the use of tlio in-,
junction, the individual freedom of
the worker to combine with others
for mutual aid and protection is all
swept away, and his-rights as a citizen'1 denied and disregarded.
For all these steadily growing, and
dangerous tendencies there is but" ouo
remedy— legislation by the people
through their proper representatives.
Again we appealed to Congress, and
again our- answer was a distinct and
emphatic NO.
,. „\Ve drafted and caused to bo introduced iii Congress specific bills to
stay and remedy this great evil, but
to no purpose.
Labor was not only given' an emphatic NO, but' it was coupled with
a. statement by candidate for vice-
president, Mr. Sherman, accepted and
approved.by the majority of'the,Congress members, that, his party, fully
understood what-it was doing,, and
accepted all'responsibility for what
it did and.for.it was not, doing. ,
1 It 'is- no' 'attack upon tho judges to
say that they are men with a fair
average quality of human nature; ami
that they are subject to the prejudices and passions' of men.
. They can not. divest themselves • of
I      4.       4
their    humanity..,. by putting on tho

-   Despotic- power, under' the  ermine
is as dangerous.-as despotic power
under the crown. . To stay* it progress some remedy must be,had, and
we therefore appealed to the Republican .convention at Chicago,, and we
were given the same answer. In still
more insulting language if that were
possible'. We asked for bread, and
they showed us a whip and In order
ot make sure ..that the..whip-would be
effectually applied tlioy nominated as
president Mr. William H., Taft, ..the
original and specific champion of discretionary government—that is, of
government by injunction. In passing, I might say that his nomination
undor the circumstances, was logical.
It would have boen Impossible for
tho party to have found a more effective   representative of its policy,
Labor's representatives then wont
to the Democratic party. That party mado Labor's contentions Its own,
It-'plodgod its candidates for ovory
offlco to effect thoso reforms which
Labor had ropoatodly submitted to
Congress. Tho Htandard bearer of
tho Democratic party, Mr. William
J, Bryan, ontorod fully into tho es-
Hohce of this utrugglo and doclarod
that the real Issuo of this campaign
Is "Shall tho pooplo rulo,"
Tho Republican parly and its cun-
date stand for upholding and furthor
oxtonding Into our country a despotic
government which shall be vested In
tho judiciary.
The Democratic party and its candidate stand for government by law
vested in the "people. ,,
. As an American citizen in view of
these facts, I have no choice—I have,
only duty.* . Duty to preservj, with'
my voice, peri and ballot, tea*, form
of government for the. preservation
of which Lincoln said "Mon died at
Gettysburg."
. Human freedom and equality of all
men'before, the law is the result of
the struggle of the ages, and our hoi.
jest inheritance. This we must regain; this, we must extend, so that il.
shall be a living, character making,
conduct governing principle in our
American life. '
. Labor has been and will.be accused
of partisanship, but in performing a
solemn duty at this time in support
of a political party Labor does not.
become partisan lo a political parly,
but' partisan to principle.
As lho campaign progresses, accusations, misrepresentations, of all imaginable kinds will come thick and
fast. In answer lo them all, I have
but this, to say, that men who havo
given a wliole life's work to the cause
of Labor, and who in all the years
gone by havo been found faithful,.sincere and honest, are. not likely to
change their character all of a sudden. If we woro desirous of either
office or other emoluments, they both
could have been obtained with greater ease from tho party iii power in
the land.
I have said before, and now again
say that there ' is no political office'
in the gift of the American people,
elective or appointive, that I would,
under any circumstances, accept.
Not that such offices could be
lightly put aside by an American citizen, but.that I believe that I can.
do moro for tlie ideas which I cherish and the work in which I am engaged,, either as''an official or as ;i
member in the rank and file of "the
Labor movement, and the threats of
politicians'to "burn'brush fires" he-
hind me wherever' I may go,' to "create rebellion" in the labor movement
against me and bring about my defeat for the presidency of the Federation, ' can have no influence upon
my mind and can ^not alter in an>
way my course.   "    '  '
As workers and citizens 'we have a
,'    *3
franchise, r as ' citizens we must"' us.*,
it to protect and extend equality of
all men-before the law rand ' secure

WORKERS, ARISE.
Workingmen of East Kootenay —
you have hoard and read that both
Liberals and Conservatives in order
to secure your votes pormise to restrict Oriental immigration, and if a
tree is to be judged by the fruits, look
up thc records of both parties: '
When tlie C. P. R. was constructed
the Conservatives held the reins of
government, and Onderdonk was one
of the contractors who imported Chinese, and there was a „ clause in the
agreement stipulating that those
aliens should be sent back to China
when the road was completed.
There is no record of a single individual being shipped back.
fl'ln 1896 Sir, Wilfrid Laurier sent
the famous teelgram dealing with
the question of Chinese exclusion,—
stating that the wishes of . British
Columbia should.be complied with.
In 1904 the 500 head tax was. imposed.- ' Why the lapse of' eight
year's between the date of the telegram .and the date of imposition?-
Becausein; 18JJG.the .merchants and
-others-at the Coast were not anxious
to lose the—clTance of "getting cheaiT
.workers, so they prevailed upon the
powers"that be to defer the imposition of the' head ,'tax7!-This being the

THE SOCIALIST VOTE.
Washington, (D.C.) Post: The increase of nearly,.35t) per.cent, Inithe.
socialist voterof..l904 over that polled in 1900, together With the" enthusiasm of the,adherents of Debs in-the.
present campaign, is a cause of anxiety to thoughtful watchers of political events' in' this couthry, not only
as to the voting strength of the.Socialists this season, but as to the probable power of that party, in future
elections.
The well advised in all the other
parties are cognizant of the influence
of the thousands ".who are flocking to
Debs'.,   meetings, ready to contribute
money for the privilege    of hearing
him vociferate on socialism and the^ suits in this line, and if the hotels,
benefits which he. claims will come
if its principles eventuate into laws,
These recruits to Debs audiences' are
furnishing probable converts to the
cause he advocates, and means desertions by the hundreds from the Democratic and Republican ranks. Well
may the leaders of these two parties
be apprehensive ofthe inroads made
by the Socinilist propaganda.
•In the industrial centres and wherever man does congregate for habit
ln large numbers there will be found
a fertile field for socialism. 'The
teachings of its, intense radicalism
appeal to the discontented and the
dissatisfied, and to the ignorant and
unfortunate who hold that the existing form of government is responsible for their material and social failures and. shortcomings,' it affords an
easy  and • a  reassuring oxplanantion.
The depression in business during
the last year will bring thousands to
the study and support of Socialism
who- would have shunned it had the
times.been better. ' '.
Whether • the Socialist party .. can
continue a phenomenal progress with
the people - of,the country all enjoying prosperity is another question.
But giving due weight to the figures of 1900 and 1904 and the size .of
the vote polled in the election of 1906
by the Socialists, there is much on
whicli to base the prophecy of greater strength for Debs and his followers.   , . ■ '
No'"' man * can give careful thought
to the. possibilities of.this increase,
hear ■ the muttered apprehensions of
the political wiseacres' in regard
ihereto, and consider the claims of
tlie. Socialists themselves without. being startled - into' the* conviction that
froniinow-on-the-Socialist-party-is-to-
be reckoned with in * future political
contests.  " ' 5

doubtedly numerous matters have
had prior claims to settlement, but
the time for action" in this regard is
surely,, well matured'by now. To the
uninitiate'd to'venture on* the alleged
streets of Fernie" after dusk is worse
than tempting fate. We do not wish
to dwell on the hold-up element that
has shown itself to ne prevalent'ih
the city; nor have wc any desire to
draw. attention to a possible recur:
rence of such depredations, but the
absenec of light Is certainly a standing invitation," and .an impetus to all
forms of'lawlessness, to say nothing
of the inconvenience caused to citizens in general.
Private eriterprisejs to be credited
with more action and successful re-
and some of the leading business
houses can have good, substantial illuminating schemes inside and in the
front of their respective places 'of
business, why should not the city fathers show as ■ much life in solving
this .vexed problem that is now, and
has for some time past, been facing
tho city of Fernie?
We understand that a lighting proposition involving only a moderate
outlay, has been placed before the
council, and it: is hoped that this, or
somo other scheme, will culminate
ultimately, and with as littlo delay as
possible, in the providing of light in
dark places.
A FALSE ALARM
person
Mondav
Some careless, thoughtless
did a. very foolish .thing on
nigh.
in order to get a crowd to alt end
Lho telephone; by-law meeting, an
alarm was sounded on tho' present
fire gong. At the present time nothing so terrifies the people of'Fernie as a firo, and on hearing an alarm
suundod so vigorously on Monday evening hundreds of citizens hurried into the. muddy streets and ran with all
speed to the firo station,, only to
learn that some person had used
this method ot drawing together1 a
crowd. ' '
- We'venture to say that if any one
had rung a .false alarm under any
other circumstances,,, they.-would have
been . promptly arrested ■ by our police, and prbperly so. ■ ' '-
, Several citizens ^considerably inconvenienced themselves to rush.to
the fire hall, others ran through,the
streets,- which   were  almost  impass-.
'^bTriHfMgina^rioTnigKr^nuTsld?'
walks, and in their hurry stumbled
and fell, only to find out on.arriving
at the .'station .that it was ..a false
alarm. Whoever did this very foolish
thing established a precedent that
might be very annoying. ' ■■
Several citizens were heard to remark' that the next alarm they will
treat with silent contempt. ■
The members of tlie firo brigade,
ivho, we believe, get paid for overy
call, should put In their claim for
this call and thus impress the foolishness of the act upon tho parties
responsible.

This paper also believes that handing over a.franchise of such a nature
to a private corporation is in .fact
turning back the hands of progress
and advancement.
The three great methods of communication, postal service, telegraph and
telephone, are. public utilities of " a
very sweeping and general nature, and
as such should be removed from the
sphere of private control, and placed
witnin reach of- all classes.
The cry of the workingman not having an interest'in telephones is indeed
a phantom and a myth. Once' the
government"" assumes control, as it
should,' of' .all' lines, and brings the
rates down to a fair and moderate basis, the workingman will no doubt respond readily tb the opportunity of
availing himseif, of this modern and
rapid means of communication.
THE  SIGNS  OF THE  TIMES.
A visitor io Fornio may discover that
an election is in sight. The Liberal
association has shown signs of a re-'
surreotlbn to life. ,' Who has come
around with the dough? At the last
provincial elections the Liberals has
as a candidate a working miner, but
like "rats deserting a sinking ship,"
ihey deserted him, und helped to elect
the Conservative,- W; It: Ross. Now
someone has "come .through with the
dough" or there would be nothing doing, for wo know that so called "Liberal" bunch would not do a' thing, unless there was a chance to "got something."        .    '
THE VOTE AT KOOTENAY.
At the time of the San' Francisco
fire the Liberal government at Ottawa
promptly ^sent. $100,000 for the relief
fund. .But when our people were left
homeless and' poverty stricken by the
late fire, and (the,city of Fernie was
wiped off the map, what'-did the' Liberal party do?. Nit.- Yet they'sent
Templeman here (smooth and fat) and
he promised to help, our city, but outside a few second.hand blankets,and
the loan of a few tents "our*people
could have suffered and. died for all
the Ottawa government cared.-We.had
to depe'ud upon, the kind hearts of our
countrymen, iri" other towns. Now that
the Liberals want our, votes:they get

them;..-   We have riot forgotten  .and

number of 3000, paraded.;the streets,
carrying'banners etc.,'! and-the capitalist, press came out the next day with
the statement that about,300 foreigners who could not1 speak English had
paraded, the. streets.
He ventured to say that they could
speak English, arid good English too.
The 3000 did not compose all thes unemployed in Winnipeg * then, there
were many more there who were not
willing to turn,out. . In England, one
of the richest countries,, what do we
find—seven-and a inillions .of unemployed. What we want is a better
chance, to live, an equal distribution
of the means of production, collective
ownership. As long as the present
system lasted,'there would always be
poverty and want. It was an old capitalist dodge to divide the workers
by means of the parties and also in
religion.' •
■ In conclusion he urged, upon the
workers to .vote for Wm. Davidson."
Dr. Clarke then followed. He- said
that he had prepared a speech, but
that he would occupy his time in refuting the charges mado by My. O'-;
Brien, who had m"i'*.<> such insh assertions of graft against Liberals and
Conservatives alike."    -
Ho himself was the son of a minor, and had been born in Northumberland in England.       ,*      .
His father, at the age of ten years
had to-1 enter tho mines, and work for
4d per,day, but,he had worked hard,
and had given his son a liberal education.     , -        .■■**'
He'; Dr. Clarke, in the Old Country,
was a Liberal, and he"ventured to say
that no man had a cleaner record than
himself, ■ and when he came to; this
country he also entered the political
arena as a Liberal. If anything was
to be found of graft iri his past career he-was willing^to give up his seat
at once. He went, on to speak of
what Liberalism had done .for the
workers. The word Liberal . first
came about in-1828. ' That year saw
the repeal of the Test and Corporation
Acts. Shortly- afterward was seen
the sweeping out of the rotten boroughs, and' Hie passing of the frari-'
chise for Workingmen.'lie also spoke
of the Compensation - act,. Factories
act, and other things done for workingmen. He believed iiv. working ..for
the1 common" good, v"; :,He'-was"-riot ■"■in
favor of dividing the classes—putting
one against- the other. He believed
it was possible to work for'the common good. ° He argued'that Socialism

COAL   CREEK
. "Dl" James? who was formerly pit
boss at the Rock Cut, and No. 5, and
who has since been at his ranch, paid
i us a few days visit last week end. He
• is off to .Pincher Creek, and the little
.-birds are whispering, loudly that the
'object of his visit is to change    Mie
name of a certain, young lady there.
Tom  Sprustoh accompanies him    as
; best'man.   ■
* .Jack Hodgson has left us to join nis
wife an dfamily at ' Frezlrigtpii, England.    ' »
Most of the" men' on night shift at
No. 5 were sent back home ou Sun-
" lay night. It appears that during the
' day the mechanics had been overhauling the fan engine and boiler and had
not completed their job as soon as
was reckoned on, consequently there
wero largo" * accumulations of gas in
tho workings and main road. Tho men
were certainly, not iii the best . of hu-'
mor. at, turning .out and then having
to, return- home. There is a feeling
that in a case like this the men could
he warned not- to como out by an arrangement of sounds to be given von
■ the whistle, whicli at present, loudly
proclaims the .time for the commencement of each shift. Such an arrangement acts successfully in other places
■and it is up, to the men, through their
■ recognized representatives', to..take up
the idea with-the management.
Mrs'.' Booth of ,191 introduced a lino
wee daughter to tho.family circle oh
"Monday morning last.
Many expressions of approval'have
been .heard at Coal Creek ,wlth.,regard.
to what has appeared, iu the Ledger
' about,the manner of the methods of
the Fernie post office' officials. The
irregularity of the service has lately
given just cause at this end for the
. oft-heard outbursts of dissatisfaction.
We are entirely dependent on Fernie
for a regular "and undelayed service,
that is of course after the mails have
reached there, and recent events show
that we are, not getting this, and fur:
ther jthat .It Is at the. Fernie end of
... the, line»that.;the?grievance.-'cah bo, lb
pleasure by once more electing him as
the president of their local union.
.A good muster of the boys took
place on Saturday night to see if it
was, possible to hold dancing classes
in order to coach the uninitiated and
to get the old. country dancers into
the Canadians styles and figures. The
motto "Money Talks'.' was held up and
the response was. sufficient to ensure
the total,expense of two practices.
.Keep this up boys aud the winter
will be through before you know
wliere you are. ' The first practice
came off on Monday night and was a
great success. Look out for tlie notice ,of the second event. All you
who haven't yet joined do-so at once.
Everything round tho mines wears
a very quiet aspect." Here and there
one may see a spark of activity in connection with the alterations which are
being made, but tho real black diamond is not going from the camp in
such large quantities as one and all
would like to see.
The result of the election for president of the land of our cousins across
the lino was received here very lamely. Everybody seems to be- saving
themselves'for our own little electioneering "picnic which don't forget —
comes off next,week.- Let your reason be your guide.
Then the right way you'll decide!"

VICTORY

Taft to. Guide Ship of State-
Bryan Makes a Showing
New York, Nov. 6—Wm. Howard
.. .) *■
Taft of Ohio," Republican, will be inaugurated on -March i ne\t' as the
twenty fifth president of the United
States, succeeding President Roosevelt of New York.
James S. Sherman of'New York will
succeed Charles \V. Fairbanks of In-,
diana as vice-president. - This is the
most important thing decided by the
people at the • ballot box as the culmination of one of,the most remarkable political campaigns in the history
of tho republic.  ■
William Jennings Bryan of- Nebraska, the Democratic candidate, went
down before the storm of ballots for
the third timo, and with him foil John
W. Korn of Indiana, candidate-for the
vice-presidency.
Returns received show that'Mr. Taft
will have at least 298 electoral votes,
and as tiie details come in increasing
fullness from the west, it begins to
look as though he might have considerably more than that,-, might " even
reach the 325. claimed for him before
the' election by ^nairman Hitchcock
of the Republican National committee
before the, election; or possibly' even
approximate the 33G achieved by Mr.
Roosevelt.,
. One of the results surpassing the
most sanguine hopes of most Republicans was Mr. Taft's carrying greater
New,York by a plurality of 15,654, furthermore his plurality- in New York
state will be approximately iS9,o34,—
exceeding by nearly 14)000 Roosevelt's
"plurality of 1904.
 0nly__sdcond7inlrinlni-7nf- romwi-in^
To representative Wm. B. McKinley
the candidate wired: "I am delighted
to know that we shall have a Republican house for that is absolutely necessary for future work."   "7    ,       0
Timothy Woodruff sent an express
sion of gratitude for the "great campaign whicli was carried on." He also
expressed especial satisfaction at the
election' of Governor Hughes.
Some of the figures relating to the
Republican slump in states which had
been regarded as certainly Republican are little short of anting. Perin-.
sylvania's plurality of over ,500,000 of
two years ago has been cut in two.
Illinois which gave Roosevelt 305,000
in. 1904, has gone ..for Taft by about
107,000. The highest claims of the
Republicans for IndIanaDis, 15,000,- as
against a plurality previously of 93,-
000. ,   .     -     .
Iowa gave Mr. Roosevelt'* 158,000
plurality in 1904, .and has now-dropped fro' nit hat figure to about 40,000
for Taft.
" Thc return of "Missouri to the Dem-.
ocratic on the presidential ticket al--
so wiped oii'l • a Republican majority
of 25,000 four years ago:
Maryland aiid West Virginia are
confidently claimed by the Republicans.
- There has boon a shinkage in the
Democraic vote' in several of the' southern states, notably in Virginia and
North Carolina.
Mr. Taft'has carried Wisconsin by
a plurality estimated at 75,000, a falling off from,the Roosevelt figures of
156,000 iu 1904.   ■ -.
Kentucky has'gone safely for Bryan
by about 15,000. Governor Johnston of
Minnesota has probably been elected
a table of.the electoral votes in the
different states:   , ,
governor of that state for a third, period, although, the state has gone for
Taft. " ,.       ,     ,       c    ',

SAVED BY SHOE STRINGS
Terrible  Experience of a  Toronto  C.
P.  R.  Brakeman.
A despatch from Toronto says:
■. "Falling between two freight cars,
John A. McDermou, a C. P. II. brake-
man, was mangled by the whole train
passing over him, a short distance
east of Myrtle, and he lives' to tell the
tale.' ,       •   ,     -
. He dragged himself on his bleeding
limbs at a distance of about 30 feel
clear if the other track and up a bank
and proceeded to make a tourniquet
with his shoe laces to have himself
from bleeding lo death.
. Found by. Mate.
And all this time his mates on   the
freight'   were   aware "that   anything
"out-or~tiro""-way~nacrTnapperiea_io_iiiiir
and .the.train was going ..on;Its way
until a man who was passing gave
the alarm. -   ,
' ■ Then ..if M. Leggett, a fellow'1 brake
man went back and found his 'mate
gritting his teeth, and", bravely trying
to stem the' flow of blood from his
... ,^
severed legs. McDermtt was still in
a conscious condition and'remained
so until he waB taken to tho hospital
and had the limbs amputated by thc
surgeons.
McDermott had been in the employ
of. the C. P. II. for about a year as
brakeman and was at work on the
morning of tho accident. It was
very foggy on the tracks and In order
to soo tho engineer better and give
signals plainer ho wont up to within
about four cars of tho engine.
Fell  Between Cars.
In somo way in gotting in botwoon
them ho fell nnd the cars wont ovor
him. It wa sa long train of about
thirty ears and all of thoso wltli tho
exception of tlio four In front passed
ovor him.
Ills cries for holp woro not hoard,
and tho train wont on, tho crow not
knowing that thoir mate had met witn
an accident,
Dragged on Bleeding Legs.
"When tho cars pawed I dragged
self ovor the othor track to tho bank,"
said ho as ho was bolng lifted off tho
train nt thn Union Btatlon nnd carried
to the police ambulunco, "It, was awful work, and tho pain waa Homothlng
terrible,
"How I got thoro I can't say," ho
wont on gritting IiIb tooth as tho pain
wuh something terrible. "I lost ono
boot but the other was hIIU on and 1
got. the Incd out nnd tied around tho
.  wounded legs.
"JiiHt ns I was doing UiIh Lcggott
cairic along, nnd found mo and they
soon put me In the train nnd brought
mc hero."
Both Legs Amputated.
SlinrUy   after  being   taken   to   tlio
illation as ours, and may be regarded j
as a promise of the wonderful things |
to  come,   when- tlie   vast  unoccupied!
areas have, boen opened up.     As thei
bulletin will only come into tholiands i
of a  limited number  of  people, and t
as tho story of the discovery of gold
as told in it is vory interesting,    we
reproduce it in part.     Gold was found
in small (piantlties as long ago as 1830
on this island, and iu the year following a discovery wa:. mnde on Morris-
boy  island  of tho    Queen  Charlotte
group.     About ?7."*,iH.0 worth cf me.".!
was taken out of a small seam thero.
Numerous reports of finds of gold in
different parts of the province came
to hand, but it was not until the year
1S57  that-tho'discoveries were'made
that gained for British Columbia ilia
name of hying a"gold producing conn
try.
The first authenticated discovery of
placer gold on the Thompson River
was about-1857,'and soon Qat ter wards
rich finds al Hill Bar, near' Yale, on
the Fraser River, were reported. This
was the beginning of the great Fraser
River excitement. It is, .stated that
in 1858 bet ween, 3 5,000 and 20,000 persons embarked from San Francisco to
-f*oiti,4_tn_hhV'_iift\v^I.";idor!ido:_buL_while.
this was tho inauguration  of     gold'
per day. About, 100 miners wore at
,,'vork on Williams Crook litis year —
the golden yoar. The aggregate of
Williams Creek for the first seven
years of working, of which no record
was kept, was very largo. Tn 1SG1
$200,000 worth, of gold was taken out
of the Campbell discovery claims, and
! tlie adjacent Whitehall claim both of
them on Lightning Creek. Attempts
.were mado almost from the start to
reach the deep channel of this creek
out after much work were abandoned
in J864. Sinking was however, resumed in 1S70, and having proved to
bo very successful, led to the subsequent great developments. The rich
character of the ground' on this creek
may be illustrated .by stating that
at one time the Butcher claim yielded
350 ounces a day, the Aurora 300 to
000 ounces, a day and the Caledonia
300 ounces." ■■   ,
Other placer gold discoveries were
made on Stikino River, Northern Cas-
siar in the sxities; in the' Oniincca
district near latitude 5G dog., In 1868,
in the Liard river drainage basin in
1872 and at Allin in\L89S. The official
records show a production-- in, Allin

. CHAPTER I..
il' . fr 4,1 f * .4.
Elspeth Dean "was almost" ashamed
to go again into the Agency to ask the
same question: '."Is there anything
(for - me?" and to hear the same answer, "Nothing to-<iay." She hesitated
at the 4oor a moment, but she had
come out on purpose to make-the.call,
and it was a confession* of "failure to
steal away discouraged.
Elspeth hated to faii, s.o she summoned up her courage und marched
in. ', ..."
■ The same young woman1 sat at the
same desk, with the saint; rather waspish,-expression on" her face. Elspeth
would have envied her ii little for her
secure position in life,.if it had not
been for that expression. But Elspeth
would.not willingly have changed hers
(whicli was ■ attractive,' even in a
greenish lodging house mirror, with
a crack across tlie middle) for that
other, in spite of the material advantages whicli might go with- it.
,   "Good-morning.  Is. there"  she
had begun as usual, when the young
woman with the expression" cut her
short.
'■ "Tlie manager will see you in her
private room," she said, with a nod
toward the door, succeeded instantly
by a flshlike gaze of discouragement
for the applicant who followed'' on
Elspeth's heels.
A small boy in livery/'sitting by the
door in question, knocked, mentioned
the name of Miss.Dean, and after a
murmur from some one unseen, in-
"vited Elspeth -to pass -.through.
Miss Smith, the manager of the
Agency, looked up from a pile of letters." *■
"Ah, Miss Dean, it's you, is it? I
■was expecting you," she remarked.
"You generally come in about this
time. How.would you like to go up to
Scotland, and be a kind of secretary
in a bis Hydro?"
Elspeth's gray eyes opened. She had
dreamed of nothing, more exciting
than a place in a London-office, and
it had appeared enormously difficult
to get even • that.. But Scotland—dear,
beautiful Scotland in August,- and a
big Hydro! It seemed too good to be
true. She was almost sure it would
end' in nothing, but she did not show
her lack of faith in her attainments
and her luck"; she was far too shrewd
a girl in spite of her inexperience, to
make such a mistake. ■
"I should like it, I think," she'said
■with creditable calmness. "Exactly
.what would I have to do?"
- "Well, it's, not-quite.an ordinary
secretarial * position,".,, 'replied. Miss
Smith. "You would have to take down
the manager's letters ■ from dictation,
of course.- Let me"-see, what's1 your
"ie next morning she-was at Eusfon
Station, one small unit in a crowd
for the Scotch express. 7,
t When*.Elspeth was a 'little girl, "she
had been taken once to Scotland to
see the place where she was born, but
she had not, been there since. Her father's people-had never forgiven him
for marrying a pretty girl somewhere
beneath him in'station, and absolutely penniless, therefore' Elspeth knew
nothing about them. Major Dean h«*id
left his son and daughter at school-in
a suburb of London-when they were
email, and Inter he'could never afford
'to take Elspeth out_to India. She had
done very little traveling in her"life,
and was much excited this morning.:
She had not dreamed that there would
be so many people going^ by train,
though—she told herself—she might
have thought of it. as Town was now
"dead;" and everybody running up to
Scotland for what was left of August
■and September.
. Elspeth had a tliird class ticket,.but
the crush wns so great that no plnce
could be found for- her. Neither was
there anything-left in the second class
compartments", by the time the porter
who had registered her box and taken
charge of lier hnndbiig began to search
for a .seat.'
"You'll have to go first class, Miss,"
said he. .
The.girl demurred. •     '
"But. they.won't let me,.and I can't
afford','— she- had begun,, when the''
porter broke in reassuringly:
"That's all right. Miss; they'll have
to let you. There's no room in the
thirds or seconds, and they're bound'
to carry you."     ' ■'
They hurried f.-om door to door, but
everything wns full, until at last they
came to a compartment occupied only

flushing.	
"Frankly, I do think you too inexperienced, but' you seem a quickwitted, sensible girl, who ought,to got

Castle Hydro makes it a point that

', ''Mother, -do .be careful,"- whispered
her daughter. ' -
' "What..dc.j; care'for a person of
that sort?"  aske'.!  the "other,  with a
quick  glance'of  contempt' at pretty,
,plainlv-dresse'd   Elspeth.' ."It's   bad
'enough" having her stuffed in with us,
without havin«  to  think  about her,
with   everv   word "one .speaks.     She

"Here comes Mr'. Kenrith,'-' broke
in the' girl, as ii thankful to make a
diversion. ■ ■ •''.•?".' ' *
■ Instantly an extraordinary change
came over her mother. "The hand:
some, though rather sharp features,
were softened with a charming smile,
which' irradiated them ns the rose of
si sun-set "(-'low irradiates a'bleak landscape in "the noitli. The dark eyes
sparkled, -the frown that had drawn
the straight black brows together was
smoothed out. ,. She looked suddenly
almost girlish and prettily feminine
as she patted ■ her beautifully undulated'auburn hair.
Elspeth, though angry, was inter-
,'ested. wonderiue what sort of man
would appear. Tiie name, Kenrith.
sounded faintly le.miliar, as if she had
heard it before; but, if bo she could
not lemenibar where!       '=
In- another second her curiosity was
satisfied. , A tall, -broad-shouldered
man'of about forty, with a nice brown
t'uc*?. wns at tiie door.
"Here I am, just in time,"- said he
in a pleasant voice, which proclaimed
him from the north' country. "May I
reallv travel with you, Lady Lambart "aiid Lady Hilary?"
"We are delighted.    You won't let
us be dull,"   replied Ladyv Lambart.
The new comer 'glanced-at Elspeth,
■as if expecting to "lind that she was
-an ncauaiiitance also, saw she was a
stranger, and begging her pardon-as
he passed took.the unoccupied seat.' .
By this time'the" young typist knew
whv'the name of Kenrith had sounded'familiar.   She had never heard it,
but  she  had   read'.about, it in'the
papers.   There was a millionaire named John Kenrith, who was very charitable,   and   whose   good   works   she
had seen mentioned.   If she remembered  aright,   he1 came  from   Lancashire, and she wondered if this nice,
brown, rather ucly man were he.   "If
he is, I do believe this horrid woman
is being sweet to him on account, of
'his- money,"   thought the   girl,""for
he 'doesn't seem her sort at all.   I do
-hope he sees through her.' He looks
clever, but I suppose men never do
see through •hands'ome.women,- especially countesses, and this evidently
is one, because now I come to look
at it,-that's, a Countess's coronet on
her dressing bag." .        ■
Elspeth had "brought a novel, and
she tried.to absorb herself in it, as
,the train rushed her on toward ex-
, citing new.':experiences; but the talk
of her traveling companions .would
entangle itself with1 that of the: characters, in the, book.- •' ' .,
"It was such a pleasant surprise
to hear, after we had.made up our
minds—to'igo_toj.'JiOcMain,JhatJymi_
were going,"" said Lady Lambart. "I
couldn't resist writing you, a line,
when I heard you were at the Carlton,- to ask if. there .were any. chance
6f "your traveling'-by our train. Then.
when I didn't get an answer"	
"I  was ; away  from ;town .all yesterday,   and   only    found  your note
when* I got back to the hotel at'-mid-■'
night, too late to wire; but of course,
I  sent  a  messenger the  first thing1
this morning"  . ' ■>
"We must have already left, It is
such a Ion? drive,- you know, and
Hilary and I hnve heaps of luggage.
But all's well that ends woll. Who
would' have dreamed of your goinf
■to Loehrain? I thought of it because
the air is so good, and it's been such
a tiring season that it will: be more
restful for us both than a' round o.'
Scotch visits,"' "
"I think I'm in great luck," saie'
Mr. Kenrith.
"You poor fellow, I, suppose yo*
roally do think so," mused Elspoth
" 'Surprised,' indood! I wonder sh
dared Bay that, after rwhnt- bIio mui-t

would be "if I told!"

ARMY'S NEW BUILDING
The first of the public buildings.to
grace the streets of Fernie is the now
citadel of thej Salvation Army, - it
is a fine architectural' buildinjr, constructed upon a solid foundation and
is a fireproof structure of buff brick
with smooth faced, concrete trimming
all In black pointing, while the.roof
is of Eastlake' Metal Shingles. '"-■
The interior' is arranged with, a
gradual sloping floor, a raised, platform and band stand with officers'
rooms at rear.
The building" is well lighted - and
ventilated and is up to date-in every
particular. The building will be
formally opened on November lGth
by Commissioner and Mrs. Coombs,
who will be accompanied by Lieut.
Col. Pugmire, and his private secretary, Staff Captain Morris and Major
and Mrs. Frank Morris of Vancouver.
The mayor, and city council, together
with the ministers of the various denominations have intimated that
they will bo present.
The Commissioner will give his famous lecture entitled "A Modern
Crusade"; the chair will be taken by
W. R. Ross K. C, IU. P.1 P. Captain
and Mrs, Laidlaw of Vancouver have
1,'een looking after tho interests of
the Salvation Army during the, lime
of construction.
Tho Army has been very energetic,
and during the fire strenuous efforts
were made to save the building they
formerly occupied. It caught fire
several times, but was pu,t out each
time, but eventually it, caught fire
and resisted all efforts to put it out.
Tlie Army had a fine lot of new'instrument's which had only just been
presented to them; these were liur
riedly taken out and placed in the
vault of the new post office building,
and  were fortunately  saved.
The building had escaped. three
times, and was an old landmark of
Fernie. .. •
The new building which is close to
tlie Bank of Commerce is a'sorat improvement to the old wooden , struct
ture.

not yet received from me a letter of
invitation to' our convention— whicli
takes place' on Monday next Nov. 9th

bye-election) who will be acceptable
to .ill sections of the labor movement.
If there are any unions who-may have
been overlooked, we, the Trades Council,'hope they will not .think such, omission, intentional,,but it is caused by
the fact,Unit the .names'of their officials are not on" our registered list. Ir
such unions.will notify me,I shall be
