Latest Tempest in Our Local
Teapot is on—Subject of
. PuBIic Prayer for Those
Without tiie Pale

Do you want to be prayed for? or do
you  hereby serve  notice    on    the
community that you want not to be
prayed for? Or do you simply want
to be prayed for In a bunch    and
without being individually   pointed
out to the throne of Grace as a special object of solicitude?
And how does King Edward feel about
it all? ■-*'•„'  V '"-
This town is getting all worked up
on the. subject of prayer. That much
of a.dint, at least, has been made upon
the sinful public mind of Pemle by
oi:r evangelistic visitors. The question
is coming at us in several sections—
. like. a coal, train wrestling with J.he
. uppety-up grade which in pursuance of
its generally high and mighty policy is
affected by the C7P. R.
The first section ■ makes inquiry as
" to whether prayer,; is of any dad-bing-
ed use whatever) outside of enabling
the prayer maker to Impart a 'choice
line s of information ■ to his' audience
while ostensibly-malting good the defective vision of the Almighty.   This
motion, to the' credit be it said of Fernie's good old folks back, home,    is
. i*t:enerally settled in the affirmative —
"Otherwise, • why pray for King   Edward?" *  ,7
But the next section comes humming along with a query not so easily
disposed of, to wit and namely: Is it
■ a covert insult, or a sign of being regarded with particular'affection, when
, one Is singled out conspicuously, and
publicly, and-placed ..under the*  lime*
•r *-lightt'as-it-were7-^asTTpeTson for "whom
public, solicitude    at the throne   ° of
■ Grace is peculiarly desirable?,   Why
thus peculiarly, desirable?    Is it   be*
. . cause everybody is anxious for you' to
*.- become a particular favorite of Heaven?
or is this concentrated, attention" to
be taken as a delicate hint that unless
your conduct.shows - some marked
chango from what it has been, you
will be ridden out of town on a rail
or presented with a seat on tho duck*
• ing stool? Aud again butts in the
question as to what conclusions King
Edward may have arrived at In this
matter after nil thoso long years during which he has been a conspicuous
object of prayerful attention on the
part of tho'public?
J »
Por be it known that this is regarded as no light matter in the streets
of Fernie at this present writing. After the manner of all mining camps
we prido ourselves on tho worship of
our women. As,has been rumored of
good King Edward himself, wo. stand
ready to "perjure ourselves like a gentleman" if tho honor of our ladies is
called-in question. And now it is
rumored that as a sort of Parthian
shot—quite possibly as a consummately shrewd device for compelling us to
discuss one. investigate the nature and
efficacy of prayer—our departing evangelist friends have signalized the eve
of their departure by singling-out, in
special. mention of their calling, and
for special presentment to the attention of Heaven, a small but select
group of our town ladles by whose
merit and grace we are all as willing
to swear as we are by their beauty.
' And so the question burns u and
throbs. ■-"If those evangelists did do
such, a thing, what on earth did they
mean by it?" To the glory of Fernie
manhood, be it said, we posit this
alleged evangelistic action as placing
the ladles in question on a parity with
Royalty. . Long live the King! The
ladles forever!! God bless em!!!!!!!

'. -This advance,agfent of fair fortune is not a goat or a horse shoe or a pink-eyed albino or any other
specimen of the common or garden variety ,of good luck charm, but rather a rarely radiant representative of the choicest of all Heaven's kindly antidotes to the internecine strife in which humanity
ordinarily loves to grovel.
For the Luck of the Crow's Nest Camps has come in the form of a bonny, blushing, beauteous
bride, a broad-browed Juno girl of the Typical Mountain .West, a girly girl and a womanly woman, *
so intimately blended and rolled into one that nb fellow is able to guess where one ends and the other
begins, a girl with the roses of Sharon in her dimpled cheeks, the laughter of Aphrodite encircling
her pearly teeth, ancl tho scent of the apple blossoms in her wavy hair—a girl to start one half the
camp on a hot foot hike for the Fount of Youth, and set thc other half to praying for Joshua's power
to stop the wheels of time!
' For this vision from Paradise International Board Member J. E. Morgan is primarily responsible,
John Edward had a hard time of it last week during the Minors Delegate Convention—ho being halted *
thcroby in tlie Valley, of Decision. On one hand his position as a Western man mado him naturally sympathize with the determination of tho men of District 18 to be governed from the ground up
instead of from thc top down; and to stand for no dictation from the central International Board
as long as thoy were not yet.driven to ask for monoy assistauco from that Board. On the othor
hand, Morgan's position ns a member of the International board mado him n buffer for all the local
indignation thnt had booh created among tho Miners of this District by Stockett's attempted use of,
International President Lewis' decidedly Delphic telegram of April 1st to try and convince thc
miners and tho goneral public that District 18 wns about to be invaded by precisely that form of
Headquarters autocracy which thoy -were resolved not to submit to,
Taking it by and largo this placed poor Morgan in that mighty small space whose geographical
location is between thc uppor and tho nether Millstone, Naturally enough ho concluded that by
way of compensation for his troubles somo consolation from High 1 renvoi, wns coining to him; nnd
ovidently tho High Gods thought so too. At nny rnto thoy first put it into his head to tnke a three
day's furlough in son roll of a consoler; and then grunted him the object of his search by throwing
into his eagor arms this charming woman who has como upon the scene ol! our local conflict liko a
Venus arising from a stormy sea.
Evidently, too, Morgan litis formed his own ideas on the oxtont to which fair woman is worship-
pod in theso Uocky Mountain mining resorts, for he smuggled his prize into camp in the wee sum'
hours of a Sunday mornin', and, with tho exception of meal times, hns kopt her under double lock

Mr. Frank Sherman, the well known
labor leader has been expelled from'
the.Socialist society because he wrote
a letter to Hon.W. H. Cushing during
election, and recalling the good .work ■
done by the minister of public works,''
wished him success In his contest. Mr.--
Cushing was a candidate for Calgary.   ,
Calgary has two representatives and
the Socialists had but one candidate.
However,    the Socialists in this city
have conceived the idea., that anyone
however worthy, Is worse,than nothing
unless he has been subjected to the •
laying on of hands by the Calgary executive. ' •    -*. '
i              ,
So Frank. Sherman has been fired
by the Socialists. Of course that does
not prveent him from being a Socialist
just the same... Socialism is somewhat,larger and more important and
older than the Socialist society in
Calgary or .-the organization ' in Canada. •■    -
Xo.absolute potentate ever showed a
more narrow, tyrannical spirit than
tho Canadian Socialists in dismissing,
on such a flimsy .charge,, the ablest
man in their ranks in Western Canada . .,   '    .    y   '
 T-he-r-.trouble—was-that— he-was-too-
strong for them. It was not the letter
that caused his expulsion. That was
the excuse. Long before that Calgary
Socialists "were fcoasti-.ig'■ that,, they
wore laying for Sherman and   would
throw him.
And that is-the-organization which
by the aid of the sacred principle of
Socialism undertakes to usher into tho
world a new commercial system and
what practically is a now civilization.
Mr. Sherman will not. bo Injured by
the action of the Socialists, but tho
Socialist society will be Injured'by lho
loss of a good mnn.

The lesson taught by the Alberta elections goes to show conclusively that
the position held by those individuals
who would rather the workers "go
sloiv" is untenable, they have been
routed horse, foot, and baggage; never
again can a purely Reform Labor party
be considered seriously uy any earnest
student of Labor politics.
Such a party was on trial ln „the
"city of Lethbridge; its platform covered almost every pallltable measure
that could be, imagined and the only
clause that smacked of a revolutionary
spirit, which demanded "The socialization "of the means of production, t he
complete emancipation of Labor from
ihe domination of capitalism, and the
economic equality of the sexes," waa
repudiated and eliminated rrom this
platform what, time the election took
Donald McN'ab went to the legislature without a contest and sat for one
session as, the choice of the newly or:
ganized reform party and again be-
. came thb standard bearer for the
"something now" element; he was
careful not to jeopardize his chances
by being "Socialist"' and confined himself to advocating reform measures,
hoping to win the support of the Lethbridge wage-earners.
Mr. McNab claimed that Capital
was .beneficial to the working class,
but was apt to forget the duty it owed
to Brothel* Labor.
I am not criticizing his position; he
and his supporters no doubt   thought
themselves     right,  and  the  extreme
stand,of the Socialist party wrong, but
I wish to point out what happened in'
spite of their efforts to clear theni-
* selves from the "taint of   Socialism.'
The Labor party of Lethbridge presented an alluring platform  to    the
workers and solicited their votes,   the
candidate  pledging  himself  to   work
-rin—their— interests—and,--hoped_.J.o_se_CL
'some of the "demands of labor" considered.   ''
But mark the result. When the capitalist candidates, Liberal and Conservative, made their appeal ^o the workers for their votes, they out-Heroded
Herod and even went one better than
the Labor candidate, promising considerably moro for Labor than was even
hoped for; they wore In favor of the
union label, shorter hours, a fair watjc,
and as for the bi-monthly pay, they
were enthusiastically In favor of a
The result was Inevitable. Donald
McNab was deserted by those who
had been his most active supporter*-*,
and the majority of the wage earners
. voted for the friends of labor, to the
discomfiture of their own nominee.
In contrast, C. M. O'nrlcm In the
Rocky Mountains district, stood i\h a
"simight" Socialist., refusing to coin-
promise his position with "roformers",
demanding that tho workers voto for
their clnsH Interests, thereby compelling the political henchmon of capitalism lo tako notico that not merely "ro-
formers" nlono wore going to satisfy
the wokrors, hut nothing -short of ink*
Ing ovor tho reins of government that
they might enact purely class legislation to tho utter undoing of tho capital-
lst. class.
This sort of electioneering has beon
ridiculed by lulior loaders (who at present lmvo n good grip on this world's
goods) reformer!*, und "political Soc*
IiiIIhIh" of the ItamHtiy McDonald typo;
It hits lj<***n ('Oiid'-mried as "vague nml

Parliamentary action, under the
bourgeois dispensation, has proved exceedingly disappointing in every country. England is in this respect scarcely worse than Germany, Prance, Belgium, Holland or Austria. " But the
State employees in France have taught
the-workers, a lesson all over the
world. The complications bf modern life are so great that the whole
of the social machinery can be thrown
out of gear by postal and telegraph
servants, railway men, pitmen, sailors
stevedores, and so on, with the greatest ease.-
They can be thrown out of gear we
say, by each of these sets of people
separately, and can be ' absolutely
brought to a standstill by each of
them acting together.
Why should not this be done as the
first step to the Social revolution? We
ourselves know from what we hear
all around us and from the ringing
applause that greets any reference on
the platform to the lesson taught by
the postal employees of Paris," that
before long the workers of Great Britain will begin to ask themselves who-.,
ther there may not be a shorter cut
to the pacification of the existing class
war and the organization bf the present anarchy than any route * which
leads through the Westminster Gas
Works.—H. M. Hyndman, in a "Justice."
volt is always against., the system
and never against individuals; it is to
make* him a just man, too wise and
just to hold individuals responsible,
for the faults of the system; it is to
make him a wise and patient man, too
wise to attempt to make things better
by venting his personal anger in savage deeds, patient enough to work
with his fellows year after year, to
bring about the economic changes
which will make freedom possible for
all' mankind.—John Spargo.
, (By Franlin H. Wentworth.)
In their hearts the privileged classes
know well that.it Is not because the
Socialist does not desire to preserve
the home that sets them quaking with
grave concern; It is because at, last he
does.   ,       '   .
For the first time in history, the
workers of the world are now evincing
a determination to preserve their own
families—to preserve , them from exploitation"."

You'd have no man through another's

But have each get his full earnings,
all-sufficient him to keep;
Not might, but right and justice   you

aim 'tis to have hurled!
You'd have all men. given leisure   to

You would ,see there was no reason

And was wrecked in mind and body

And the children, helpless    children,

Youth-should have its golden glory everywhere upon the earth, •
None be doomed to toil and hunger

And when the worker actually begins to preserve his own family and
demands for their consumption    the
products of his labor, the idler
knows he will at last have to bestir
himself to preserve his.,
Indeed who cannot see that as the
family of the working man rises at last
out of its collective misery, the Idle,
the parasitic family, so long secure in
its unproductive uselessness, must
cease to fatten at the cost of tho families of the poor,
Did you say that tho nation can't run
those industries for Itself successfully?
Well If tho nation can manage a state
university, It can surely run a packing
If It can food a fighting arm It can
run a hotol,
If It can build bridges lt can build
If It can Irrigate land It can sell
If It. can soil postage stamps lt can
sell coal,
If It can maimgo a navy It can man-

If It can mnko cannons It can make
If It can manage experiment nl farms

If lt can pave tho stroots It can also
mako tho materials with which to

If the pooplo can run tho publio

Do not the law books tell us that by

And should governed be by dead mon

It is sacrilege to ask us not to be their

It Is awful just to think of all the

VANCOUVER, April 16—At' last
night's meeting of Vancouver Trades
and Labor council a communication
from the Conservative association asking Labor to lift, its voice in support
of the so-called Imperial Defence
movement, received a- scorching excoriation from, Secretary Pettipiece:
"The country.is feeling the effects
of a wave of jingoism," he remarked,
"but I would like to know why the
working classes should support" this
"Dreadnought business. War is never
made by the workers and -the workingmen of Germany and of England
at labor conferences have passed resolutions condemning these, armaments. War is promoted for the selfish
ends of capitalists and if the working
classes only' refused to assist in these
schemes it would become a thing of
the past. It is the workers who do
fighting, not the capitalists, but it is
the capitalist whose ends are promoted by the foolishness of .the workers
in fighting their fellow workers of
other countries. I have drafted a resolution which I would like to see
passed, and which is taken from resolutions at a labor conference at Berlin at a meeting of the independent labor party of Great Britain and the
Trades and Labor congress of Canada."
Parm's resolution was as follows: ,

Despite overy consideration of personal safety,
and private advantage, Pres. .Prank 11. Sherman
of .District 18 U. M. W. of A., is making the fight
of his life against a cunningly managed attempt on
the part of the employing class to force upon our
local miners' unions a form of alleged "agreement"
which would not only effect an immediate reduction of the financial ability of our miners to support the working class cause, but would also render that disability permanent by virtue of ultimately destroying tlie union itself.
It is a typical illustration of that'vagary of
human nature which sometimes induces even the
sincerest champions, of the working class to make
thoughtless assault upon the under pinning of their
own cause, that at this particular, crisis in the
'struggle of our local coal mining unions for fairer
conditions, a number, of members of the Socialist
Party of Canada have deemed it proper to make
President Sherman the object of a widely published attack such as is admirably calculated to cause
dissension in the ranks of our local miners, and to
that extent to give to the common enemy a .degree
' of aid and comfort for whicli they would undoubtedly have paid good hard coin if extended., by purchasable., members of Labor's army, and which
must, therefore; be all the more gratifying to them
when it comes, as in the present instance, from
a group of men whose financial integrity seems to
be unquestionable... 7   .
. their action—and with the consequently varying
strength of their right to exist.     The extent, for
example, to which the expulsion of Frank Sherman
from one .of these subsidiary ^organizations has been
dictated, if at all^by feelings of; jealousy or Pharisaical self-pride on the part of his accusers,   will
mark also the extent to which, ih the final working
out of inevitable law, that organization will suffer
defeat ancl disruption as a consequence of such selfishness; and,, on the other hand, the extent to
whicli Frank Sherman himself shall give way, if at
all, to a feeling of resentment because of this attack
upon him,, wrill mark also the extent to which   he
himself is under the dominion of the selfish nature
—and therefore, the extent to which his own-character will'be disciplined and refined by the suffering which Uy that selfishness, if he shall give way
to it, will inevitably be brought to his door also.
"The-whole question of responsibility in-regard
to this episode aiid its consequences   is therefore
purely an academic one, depending simply on the
existence or non-existence of motives Avhose exact-
degree of control over the self-nature of our neighbors, or even of ourselves, it is not given to any one
of us to find out.   -All that we can say is that the
Spirit of Life can never be fooled in these matters,
and that in the long course of events exact justice
will inevitably be meted out to all parties,concerned, y . "       ■
■   As for Frank Sherman, it is obvious that, whatever, his present or future status may lie in relation
£o the Socialist party, he has not been and cannot
be debarred from such activity as he may be pleased   to exercise   in that great Socialist Movement
which includes not only the work of the Socialist
Party, • but' also that of a dozen   other different
forms of honest effort for the emancipation of the
working class.     The very ground of his exclusion
from official recognition in the'Party'form of.ac-
tion—the charge that is to say, that by admitting
beneficial working .class action on. the part of ji
section of thc Liberal party he did injury to the
Socialist party—is a charge that stands very widely open to question.     To assume that oneself and
one's associates are the sole repositories of   such
common sense and integrity    as may have been
vouchsafed to our day and generation is not only,
to put it mildly, an extremely   large assumption,
but also'looks very like a.survival of that spirit of
mere party fanaticism which has been the disgrace
of both Canadian and, American polities   in times
now happily receding; or like a retrogression   to
that   spirit of priestcraft and   Pharisaism which
posits its own pretensions of superior virtue upon
a denial of any. possession     of virtue by   others,
and which places itself in antagonism to that elementary dictum of both evolution and philosophy
that acknowledges the element of usefulness, in

expulsion of our. friend Fra/ik from that branch of
the Socialist movement which is known as the Socialist Party—the. technical ground of the action being the publication, albeit without Sherman's own
knowledge or consent, of a paragraph contained in
a private letter written by him and expressing belief that the labor legislation enacted during the
recent session of the Alberta legislature at the behest of the Liberal administration of that province
had not been entirely devoid of benefit to the working class,-, o
Tn thus mentioning and characterizing this action it is not intended to condemn it; and that for
several reasons. In the first place, because to do
so would be to quarrel with an accomplished and
unchangeable fact, and therefore to question tho
efl'ectiveness of that unseen force ol: whose workings all such facts must necessarily be a resultant,
—in the second place, because under the rules of
the Socialist Party the Committee to whom the
charge had to be referred, when once it was made,
could hardly have decided otherwise than they did
on the evidence adduced—nnd in Ihe lust place because, nfler all, the verdict is not likely lo diminish
the serenity of Frank Sherman, or to lessen his usefulness to Ihe working class'movement.'
■ Indeed if any criticism whatever may be indulged in, without going beyond the lines prescribed by
up-to-date philosophy, it would seem to attach rather to those I'ori.iN and methods ol: organization
which are not yet beyond reach ol! change and
which permit and encoiiriige the venting of
thought loss and uncliurilahlc impetuosity in lho
initiating ol' Hi urges al n lime when ils victim hns

maintenance of our upstanding and for the proving of our own movement's right to exist, we find
it necessary to make sweeping denial, of either
kindly intention or partial performance on the part
of men as honest as ourselves, but unfavored by the
GodsWith our degree of economic light.
If wo really love our cause beyond all other considerations we will avoid prejudicing its advancement by any display on our part of egotism or intolerance' or boorish inappreciation of kindly intention on the part of those who may not see as
clearly ns we do. By our insistent and persevering efforts to convert those around us to an acceptance of Socialism, by our constant and repeated financial sacrifices in the printing and spreading of Socialistic literature, wo aro making daily
acknowledgement not only of oiir own deep-seated
conviction that social justice will'not be established of its own motion and without our earnest individual effort to prepare the way for it, but also of
our belief that the persuading of our fellows is a
neeeysary part uf nil this oreparing of the wa/.
Let us thoroforo bo consistent with ourselves by
going about this work of persuasion and propaganda in a spirit which will demonstrate to all be-
holders that it is for the winning of allies in a noble
cause, nnd not for the gratifying of our pride of
opinion or the pedant ie display of our ability to
repent abstruse economic arguments industriously
culled from Ihe hooks, that wo are so nctively be*
stirring ourselves. "Hearts are Iriiuips," dear

Certain of our unesteemed cotems,
being seduced 6f the (C. P. R.?) devil
and their own evil imaginations, have
sought to sow seeds of discord amoug.
the friends of justice in these parts by
characterizing District President
Frank Sherman as a mean and unsociable "Czar," too fond to rule alone.
■ They have another "guess coming..
If there is one Mine Workers' official
in America who is Insistent upon receiving constant instructions from the
i* _.
rank and * file, who consistently abstains from any attempt to dictate
such instructions, and who frankly and
independently keeps everlastingly
hammering' it: into his constituents
that .they cam have his resignation
whenever his conduct ceases to suit
them, that man *•• is Frank Sherman.
Such attacks may to some,.extent serve
their malodorous purpose by prejudicing against the miners' cause the opinions of unthinking persons remote
from the scene of action; but' they
excite nothing but a smile in Frank'3
own bailiwick, where he is known and
liked *not only as one of the most unassuming of men in his own demeanor,
but also as a resolute opponent'of
those autocratic .methods and policies
which are the persistent curse , and
ultimate destroyer of'any organization'
—whether in labor or in politics or in
society—whose. members may prove
-sufficiently— asinine—and—sufficiently-
servile to adopt such methods or stand
for them.'        . .,
The fact that'.without personal appeal from President Sherman the various local unions 1 of this District so
unanimously sustained, and endorsed
his action in refusing to entertain as a
completed agreement those incomplete
and unfinished, but none the less treacherous, proposals of the Maeleod
conference—proposals, which in Sherman's absence, and with such indecent
haste and unseemly disregard of honest methods, tho-enemies of fairplay
nnd true unionism in this neck of tho
woods were endeavoring to rush along
from tho tentative to tho officially accepted stage—ought to give pause to
editors who, however grossly their
ignorance of modern Industrial conditions may projudice them against the
uplifting of the man who works, havo
yet managed to retain some remnant
of respect for their reputation for veracity nnd reasoning power.

a lot of support is forthcoming from
the union there will likely he a break

Apart from the impudent falsity of
the above statement (as shown by 1 the
fact that the signed up and union'
scale town of Michel, only a few
miles away, is unable to get as many
miners as it needs) its.animus and
status as a stupidly inspired and clumsily fabricated canard ought to be apparent to any news editor *<yho might
be sufficiently awake to take note
that it" comes from the home camp of
ttie ghost dancing minority coal operators; that it characterizes- as' a
"strike" a situation,which is really a
holiday unasked by the men but enforced by the bucking coal managers;
and that its asserting,of local discontent and restlessness is all of a piece
with that attempted stirring up of
trouble in that same town which only
a few days ago was universally stigmatized by the newspaper correspond
ents on the ground'' as a ridlcul-ris
farce worked up by the hired sec-ret
service men of the company itself
." Such stealthily mendacious tactics
as these will avail as little as did the
brazenly mendacious tactics adopted
at the initial stage of,the fight. Union
men are braced,and fortified by too
many hard fought campaigns against
unscrupulous. employers to be lightly

ranks; and even the of times too cred-

The action between Connell &"' Scott

honor Judge Wilson at the court house

large contractors ln - Fernie and they
claimed from the defendants the sum
of $659, amount of balance due for
work done at the Coal Creek club under contracts made in July arid Octo-
be rl908. The defendants contend
that the stipulations under tho contract
have not been carried out': some parts
of the works have not been done ln
a satisfactory, manner, it is claimed,
and other parts not being complete. For
tho plaintiffs "William Connell and C.
H. Archibald wero put on the stand.
Tho hearing of the caso was adjourned
until Tuesday, the 20th. On the resumption of the case on this date P. A.
Taschereau and E. A. Kummer were

fedners' caso was then begun and the
evidence of A: Younger, B. Hesketh
and 6. S. Rees was taken.' The case
was then adjourned ■■• until next day
when J.'Combe,' George O'Brien and 12.

The football season has started well
here. A practice match was played
on Saturday between the married and
single meir which resulted' in a win

The outlook promises, judging by the
form of'some of last years players, a
strong team for Michel. Whitehouse
was in great form, on Saturday, so was
Mason and Oakley. Harris and Joyce
played a good hard game for tho stiffs.
For the singles Barnes was the pick of
the side, lie is as fast as ever. Jenkins
also did some very fine playing. Matt
Mather did not show anything like his
old form on Saturday.' Moody proved a
very useful man for the singles. The
club now have to undergo some hard
training and keep well together, and
there's no doubt the championship will
remain in Michel for another season.

Figure   Out   the   Harmony Between
These Two Articles-A Great
Little World This .
(From the .Nicola Reporter)
They are invading Canadian territory, by hundreds and thousands every
week! Not the Fenians, nor the Flying
Rollers, but intelligent, active, clearheaded American settlors who mean
i '
Wealth is pouring over the borders
Into Canada from the United   States
at the rate of nearly a million a weelt,
according to tho estimates' of those
who are In touch with the immigration
movement.    The influx is exceptionally large and the train service Is working overtime to handle the crowds.
Special setlers trains with large numbers of cars loaded with effects are
also betog operated.     It is estimated
that, between 75,000 and 100,000, Americans will come in this season, taking up between 20,000 and 25,000 homesteads.     At several points in Saskatchewan! and Alberta the rush has been
so great that the government has arranged to supply large furnished tents.
. No one but a rabid alarmist*   will
view    this "invasion"  as a menace.
History shows us that American   settlers make good Canadians. They like
our laws and our style; they like our
schools;  they like the   opportunities
afforded them, and they bring their
■ children up in this faith as lcyal Canadians.   . This is the class of imml,
grants that will help to make Canada
the greatest'of nations. We have had
enough experience with the scum of
Europe and Asia thank you. Hail the
American settler."
SAP'S RUNNING     * , .
(From the Western Clarion..)
the appropriate date of April lst, the
Toronto Globe   forecasts the coming
t*of form 70000 to 100,000 land hungry
April Fools from the States.    It's a
safe bet that Inside of a year a good
many of these will be hungry in other
There Is plenty of land in 'our' broad
Dominion all right,' and. these moss-
backs can get it,, too—on the same
terms as the wage slaves get jobs, to
wit., that they shall toll and aw oat
their best and shall deliver up to the
capitalists all the product of their, toil
over and above their own bear cost of
The Globe is, of course, rejoiced at
their advent, is, in fact, licking its
chops in anticipation of the toothsome
sugar that shall come t this sap. It
urges nil good Canadian citizens "tb
have on hand a good supply of kettles,
and buckets and spiles. "Common-
sense, it continues, "suggests that every man should do his.part to make
sure of his share of the sap. He owes
it to his country, his family, himself."
A*nd forthwith it proceeds to reinforce
precept with example by hastening to
secure its own share, of the sugar" in
advance, by offering to provide the
sugar hungry'horde with the aforesaid
spiles and buckets, and kettles In the
form of "Publicity."
Where is the sugar harvest to come
from? Why, from those seventy thov.s-,
and, odd sapheads who are escaping
from the "Land of the Free," expecting to find relief under "our glorious
Empire," by renewing their labors in
those sunny prairies and park like
pastures so feelingly described i'n the
immigration literature^ "Wealth is
pouring in over the border at the rate
of nearly a million a week," enthuses
the Globe's Winnipeg correspondent,
and he tells no lie. Those homely,
rough clad homeseekers are walking
repositories of wealth. They are of
that class from whom all blessings
flow. Concealed beneath their unattractive exteriors lie the well springs
of wealth. ' They are full of sap, they
liave but to be tapped.
Given the opportunity this horde
will settle upon thousands.df homesteads, and will wrestly mightily with
the prairie, sod and the willow roots,
a*nd will toil and beg and borrow and
scrimp and save and will eventually
been and will dutifully deliver it into
the hands'of their masters: Tho hearts
of the Globe and its clients will , be
made glad, and ■ as they suck - their
lumps of sugar, they will occasionally
praiso the sinewy sons of toil for their
thrift and industry and delicately refrain from making any reference to
their monumental stupidity." .

several days. A cheque for $1000
from Lethbridge came In'before'August
10th. After the 10th the money began
to come in.   •
Taylor: For the first few "days In
August how were you fixed for books?
He did not have any. He had a few
slips of paper in the ,Coal Company office to start with. He had a shed for
an office on-the school ground to start
with. After that he got into a tent,
and after that go into a temporary
building 10 x 12. Into this small build-
ding were crowded himself, city clerk,
city engineer, two stenographers'' and
the city police generally. After being through with tliese.quarters about
the 3rd of September,-they started to
move into the building which the Relief committee liave now. They got
settled there about September 5th. Under the conditions named he had lo
carry on business and handle monoy.
Asked when he first got books he said
he could not tell, but he had no books
in the tent, neither had he any in the
10 x 12 place for some length of
time. Boulton and himself could not
do anything .In the small building on
account of tho overcrowding. In reply
to question he stated that Boulton and
himself had been appointed to go round
and get a list bf those requiring relief
lumber, etc.,, and nil ho had for his
books then were slips of paper. Asked
where the slips were now he could not
say If they were all over at the relief
office now.
When did you first get an opportunity of writing up cash book? ■ ,,
Lockhart: Some time after moving
into tbe present .building, which was
some time after September 5th. . In
reply to question he said it entailed
considerable amount of work to make
up "cash at any time. Lockhart said
If a person made up a, deposit slip ln
a day he would do fairly well with the
lots of people calling and with the Interruptions.                                        \
Taylor: Amongst the various items
is an error of $900.
Lockhart: If I wanted money'I would
not enter It'In Buch large figures as
that. ' I should say It would show a
lack of brains.
Amongst other amounts he  received
a   communication  from   Mr.   Cameron,
mayor of'Calgary, stating, that reclpts
on  hand  amounted  to   $3600   or  $3700,
which,   allowing      for  local   expenses,
would leave about $3500, and he would
be   pleased k to   accept   draft   for   that
amount. ■   It was upon the strength of
this   communication- that   entry      was
made in cash book.    In the meantime
he received ' another      communication
from the mayor of Calgary stating that
he had made a mistake of $900, and the
amount of  the subscription  was'     not
likely to be over $2600 or $2700, leaving a small amount for local accounts
to be paid. '   He enclosed a cheque for
$2600:      He had entered up  $3500  on
the  books.      He called  it  $2600    and
took deposit slip $2600 and, struck out
$3500,  Instead of putting through    an
adjusting entry of $900 on'the      othor
side of cash book, which would    have
squared the matter,     He admitted that
the  adjusting  Item   had  not  been   put
through.,-in   his   time.       The   Calgary
draft was marked returned by bank on
2nd September, it went through Sept.
25th,   and   the   adjusting   Item   should
end of the month.
Taylor: Up to what page was-written
ln when you turned over the books to
Lockhar.t: I believe lt was page 17
In cash book when I turned over to
Lockhart stated that Webb worked
as general assistant In his office before being appointed secretary, Shanley
was also thero ln connoctlon with the
sale of supplies.
Asked If Shanley kept any books ho
replied that he did. There wero sup
ply books kept and also a' supplementary cash book, It was a small, cheap
cash book of a red color with a cheap
binding, It was supposed to bo a
record of ItemB of cosh received for
salo of supplies', sale of tools, deductions from men's salary. Tho book
was kept jointly by Shnnley and Webb
he believed. '■ Ho could swear positively that .Webb's handwriting appeared
ln It, but ho could not swear as to
Shanley's. , Ho had to check up tho
book somotlmes In connection with tho
money ho received, " Lockhart could
not describe tho other books In connection with tho supplies,
Tnylor: Did you seo theso, hooks In

he had not soon them. Ilo read

One' of the 'certain indications of
spring is the awakening of the. soul of
the spring poet. Spasm 1: r \
There's one small spot in the .British
land, that will always be dear to
me,   ■   , •
It's a little lot on a sunny hill in the
west part of Fernie, B.   C.
This lot is sheltered on the north and
west by mountains tall and grand
The east and south are bordered by a
pleasant valley land.
Trees and  stumps,'that decked    the
ground have all been cleared away
By   days and days of labor, but from
now on 'twill be play.
For when you're,.-passing to and fro,
you will be surprised to see
Growing  where' those  stumps  stood,
some thrifty apple trees.
When the April clouds break over and
'   send their welcome showers down
The beauty of my orchard flowers will
be the talk of all the town.
And their fragrant perfumes will blend
the air so sweet
And be wafted by the west winds.down
through all of Fernie's streets.
Strangers coming into town will be
surprised to know
That apple'trees when planted will in
Fernie ever grow.'
And some will be so anxious to buy
my orchard land
For   the winters . here are pleasant,
and the summers are so grand.
When the long, bright sunshine days
-   of.June.are on the wing,
I'll be strolling through my orchard
just as-proud as any king,
And you'll hear my voice re-echo
through this mountain air so free,
As I sing that well known song: Under the shade of the old apple
Soon, oh soon July and August will go
' flying swiftly by, '
And the apple harvest season in   its
splendor will be night,
Ah,''tis then twill keep me hustling
from early morn till night      V)
But the picking of the apples will he
a .sure delight.
When you're * out a shopping on Fer-
mie's busy street,
You will he surprised at the rosy apples that your wandering: eyes
will meet,
Through the windows if you'll notice
,you can' look to any side,
The leaders among the apples are the

He sighed, and his sigh puzzled her.
"Oh, well,", she cried, "at least you
know I'm Sophy Grouch, and iny father was as mean as the man who
opens your lodge gate."
The sky' had gone a blue black/ A
single star somberly announced -the
coining pageant.
"And his daughter! high as the hopes
that beckon .me to my.career!"
"You've a wonderful way of talking,"
smiled Sophy Grouch—simple Essex in
contact with Paris at that instant,
"You'll be my wife, Sophie?"   '
"I don't think Lady Meg will keep
me long.   Pharos is working hard, so
Marie Zerkovitch declares.    I should
bring you a dot of 2,500 francs!"
,. "Do you love me?"
The old question rang clear in the
still air. Who has not heard it of women or uttered it of men? . Often so
easy, sometimes so hard. When all is
right save one thing, or when all is
wrong save one thing, then it is hard
to answer and may have been hard to
ask. With Casimir there was no doubt
save the doubt of the answer. Sophy
stood poised on a hesitation. The present seemed perfect Only an unknown
future cried to her through the falling

"The emperor will fight!"
"You're no emperor's man!*" she
"Yes, while he means France. I'm
for anybody who means France." For
a moment serious, the. next he kisses
her hand merrily. "Or for anybody
who'll give me a wreath, a medal, a
toy to bring home to her Move."
"You're very fascinating,** Sophy confessed. .
It was not the word. Casimir fell
from his "exaltation. "Ifs not love,
that of yours," he said.
"No—I don't know. You might make
It love. Oh, how I talk beyond my
"Beyond your rights? Impossible!
May I go on trying?**
He saw Sophy'B smile dimly through
the gloom. From lt he glanced to the
dying gleam of the white houses dropped among the trees, to the dnll mass
of tbe ancient home of history ond
kings. But back he came to tbe living, elusive, half seen smile.
■•Can you stop?" said Sophy.
He raised his hat from his bead and
stooped to kiss ber hand.
"Nor would nor could,", said he—"in

The spirit of bis race filled his reply,

"May I salute the star?*
"But it's no promise 1"
' "It's better."
"My dear, Wra very fond of you."
"That's all?"
"Enough for tonight. What's ho

"The emperor? I'm not so much as
sure ho's thore really. Somebody said
ho had started for St Cloud this morning."
"Pretend he's thore!"
"Then, of anything except how many
men die for what ho wants."
"Or of how many women weep?"
Her reply sot n new light to his passion.   "You'd weep?" ho cried.
"Oh, I suppose so!" Tho answer was

he, too, prayed her to beware of a certain influence. "Stuff! You don't know
what you're piking about!" Lady Meg
Jerked out and pointed with her finger
lo the door,- .   .,•
Early on the morning of Sunday, the
17th, having, received word through
Lady Meg's maid that her presence
was not commanded in the Rue de Grenelle, Sophy slipped around to the Hue
du Bac and broke in on Marie Zerkovitch, radiant with her great news and
imploring her friend to celebrate it by
a day in the country.
"It means that dear old Lady Meg
will be what she used to be to me!" she
cried. "We shall go back to England,
I expect and—
I wonder what
that will be
Her face grew

Back to England! How
would that suit
Sophie de
Gruche? And
what was to
happen about
Casimir de Savres? The period of her long, sweed Indecision was
threatened with a forced conclusion.
Marie Zerkovitch was preoccupied
against both her friend's Joy and her
friend's perplexity. Great affairs
touched her at home. There would be
war, Bhe said, certainly war. Today
the senate,went to St Cloud to see
the emperor. Zerkovitch had started
thither already on the track of news.
The news ln the near future would certainly be war, and Zerkovitch would
follow the armies, still on the track
of news. "He went before, ln the war
of sixty-six," she said, her lips trembling, "and he all but died of fever.
That ..kills the correspondents Just as
much as the soldiers. Ah, it Is so dangerous, Sophie—and so terrible to be
left behind alone! I don't know what
I shall do! My-husband wants me to
go home. He doesn't believe the
French will win, and he fears trouble
, for those who stay here." She looked
at last at Sophy's clouded face. "Ah,
and your Casimir—he will be at tbe
front!",   . •    ' • ■  -
"Yes, Casimir willbe at. the front,"
said Sophy, a ring of excitement hard-
Jy^PPresM^nj^ejj?ojce. .
"If he should.be killed!" murmured
Marie, throwing her arms out in a gesture of lamentation.
"You bird of ill omen! He'll como
back covered with glory,"
Tho two spent a quiet day together,
Sophy helping Marie in her homely
tasks. Zerkovitch's campaigning kit
was overhauled—none knew how soon
orders for, an advance might come-
bis buttons put on, his thick stockings
darned. Tho hours slipped away in
work and talk. At 0 o'clock they went
but and dined at a small restaurant
hard by. Things seemed very quiet
thero. Tho fat waiter told them, with
a shrug: "Wo shan't lmvo much hoiso
hero tonight ' Tho' Inds will bo over
there!" Ho pointed across tho river.
"They'll bo over thero most of tho
night, bn tho crowded boulevards. Bocauso It's wnr, mndo mo. Oh, yes,0 if s
war." Tho two young women sipped
their coffeo iu silence. "As a lad I

"Oh. jth! Thank you."
"Your room Is ready for you tonight"
"I've dined,   I ahnll want nothing.

Sophy walked over to tbo little table
In the window and for a few momenta

filled with a plcturo which IU walls
had never seen. Old words re-echoed
lo Sophy's far*: "if I -want you to go
I'll put a hundred pound note In an
envelope and send It to you, upon
which joo'll go. and an reasons gtvenl
U It aat-mi." A* If d-aMia-, a loan way
off aha heard a servant gUI anrwer. "It
sounds all right" She saw the old elin
trees at Morpingham and heard the
wind murmur in their boughs. Pindar
chuckled; and Julia -Robins' eyes were
wet with tears.
"And no reasons given!" It had
sounded all right—before five years of
intimacy and a life transformed. It
sounded different now. Yet the agreement had been made between the
strange „lady and the eager girl.
Nor were reasons hard to find. They
stood out brutally plain. Having
sent her prophet to the right about
Lady Meg wanted no more of her medium—her most disappointing medium.
"They" would not speak through Sophy. Perhaps Lady Meg did not now
want them to speak at all.
Sophy tore the envelope right across
its breadth and shook out.the flimsy
'paper within.   It was folded in four.
She did not trouble to open it   Lndy
Meg was a woman of her word, and
here was the hundred pound note of
the Bank  of England—"Upon  which
you'll go, and no reasons given!" ' With
a bitter smile she noticed that tho note
was soiled, the foldings old, the edges
black where they were exposed.   She
had no doubt that all these jears Lady
Meg had carried it about, so as to be
ready.for the literal fulfillment of her
"Upon which," said Sophy, "I go."
The • bitter smile  lasted  perhaps  a
minute more, then the girl flung herself
Into a chair ln a fit of tears as bitter.
She had served—or failed to serve-
Lady Meg's mad purpose, arid she was
flung   aside.     Very   likely   she   had
grown hateful—she, tbo witness of in-,
sane whims now past and out. of favor.   The dismissal might not be unnatural; but, for all their bargain, the
amnne**- was Inhuman.  They had lived
and eaten and drunk together for so
long.   Had there been no touch of affection, no softening of the heart?   It
seemed ^not—it  seemed   not    Sophy
wept and wondered.   "Oh, that I had
never left you, Julia!" she cries in her
letter,  and no doubt cried now,  for
Julia had given her,a friend's love. ' If
Lady Meg had given her only what one
spares for a dog—a kind word before
he is banished, a friendly lament at
Suddenly through the window came
a    boy's   shrill   voice,
"Vive la guerre!" *
Sophy sprang to her
feet, caught up the dirty
note and  thrust it Inside her glove. Without
delay, seeming without
hesitation, she left the
house,   passed   swiftly
along   the   street   and
made for the Pont Royal.   She was bound for
the other bank and for
Mwnfl herself the Boulevard des Ital-
tnto a chair ienSi wnere Casimir de
lf Savres had his lodging.
The stream of j traffic set
with her.    She heeded it not    The
streets were full of excited groups, but
, there was no great tumult yet   Men
were eagerly  reading,the latest editions of the papers.   Sophy pushed on
-till-she-reached—OasimWs ..house. — She,
was known there.   Her coming caused
surprise to the concierge.   It was not
the proper thing, but he made no difficulty.    He showed her to Caslmlr's
sitting room, but of Casimir he could
give no information save that he presumed, he would return to sleep.
"I must wait—I must see him," she
said, and, as the man left her, she
went to the window, flung it wide open
and stood there, looking down into the
great street
Tho lights blazed now.' Every seat
nt every cafe wns full. Tho newspapers did a great trade. A wave of Infinite talk, infinite chaff, Infinite laughter roso'to her cars. A loud voiced fellow was selling pictures of the king of
Prussia, as ho looks now, and ns ho
will look! The second Bhcet never
failed of a grent success. Bands of
Inds camo by with tings and warlike
shouts. Some cheered them, moro
laughed and chuffed. One broad faced
old man she distinguished in tho cafe
opposite. Ho looked glum and sulky
and kept arguing to his neighbor, wagging a fat forefinger nt him repeatedly.
Tho neighbor shrugged bored shoulders. After all, he hnd not mado the
war—lt was tho emperor and those gen-
tleircn at St Cloud! As sho watched
the stir grow greater, tlio bands ot

Fads for Weak Women
Nine-tenths of ail the sickness of women is due to some derangement or db-
ease of the organs distinctly feminine. Such sickness can be cured—is cared
every day by
Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription
It Makes Weak Women Strong,
Sick Women Well.
It acts directly on the organs affected and is at the same time a general restorative tonic for the whole system. It cures female complaint right in the privacy
of home. It makes unnecessary the disagreeable questioning, examinations and
local treatment so universally insisted upon by doctors,' and so abhorrent to
every modest woman.
We shall not particularize here as to the symptoms of
those peculiar affections incident to women, but those
wanting full information as to their symptoms and
means of positive cure are referred to the People's Common Sense Medical Adviser—1008 pages, newly revised

ADEN. Anrll 20—Anothor vatiinble
addition to the African hunting party
accompanying Theodore Roosevelt io
the jungel was made to-day when A.C.
Selous, an Englishman with a valuable
record as a big game hunter, promised
to join- the ex-president at Nairobi.
The Colonel is greatly' elated over the
promise and will endeavor to persuade
the English hunter to remam wlth^iis
party indefinitely,,,
Selous, who is a passenger on the
Admlrrl, would not promise to continue with the Roosevelt party after
it ernched Nairobi, but if Col. Roosevelt entreats him he will probably bo
persuaded to alter Ihs own plans to
that extent.
Selous lias spent most of his life
hunting big game ancl knows ns much
about the Afrlcnn jungle ns nny while
mail,, ■ .
"For a man who has never seen Africa Col, Roosevelt. Knows more .about
tho country than any mnn I havo ever
seen,' declared Selous to-day, "It Is
hard to imagine a moro enthusiastic
sport. I shnll bo 'pleased lo hunt
with such a mnn."
