Conciliation Board—Result
Now Very Doubtful
Various reports have appeared in B.C. papers ol' recent dates as to the miners having gone bach
to work, but as in other cases they have proved,premature and unreliable.     The conference at Mac-.
leod', has at, least p,lace"d before the public inno uncertain manner the fact that the operators are determined to have their way or no way.     The success of arbitration proceedings under, such conditions is indeed problematical.      , _   •   , ; \  -.
- -The issues between the contending parties in.-the strike situation seem to be resolving themselves
into ones of law.' It is seriously contended by the'mine operators,that-an agreement such as exists
with the Crow's Nest Pass Coal Company is what is known as a. closed shop one, whereas on the other
hand it is, as seriously contended by counsel for'the mine workers that it is, not one. There being
s this question raised, the mine workers through their counsel-offer to leave the interpretation of the
■ agreement to his honor judge Carpener or to any other judge out of the province of Alberta that the
operators might select.   , This of fer was turned down.'
Before adjourning on Saturday the Board submitted the following recommendaions:
"We recommend the resumption of. operations under the terms and .conditions prevailing at the
several mines prior to the lst of April 1909. .
1 "In the meantime the board will, forthwith compile a general agreement based on .the old
agreements, covering all the mines,.and will adjust, all differences at present outstanding between the
parties,- particulars of which should .'be! filed .up; to noon on "Wednesday the'2th of May. ,. <
, , , "We recommend that the decesion ,of the Board shall be final and abiding on both parties for a
period to be decided by the Board, the same not to exceed a, term .'of three years from the First of
April, 1909.?' ,      " ,        "   :       -      ■  . '.  '
-Tt will be seen that that recommendation was intended to-.afford, the resumption of operations upon the terms of the previously existing agreements, and that the person to whom the interim
agreement was referred had no, right to depart from the principles of'^such prior agreements. The
mine workers, acting upon.the principle involved in the-Board's.memorandum submitted the following agreement. '"* '--"        ■ '

be entered into between them, and the sa/d disputes are now under investigation by a board" of conciliation appointed under' the Industrial Disputes Investigation Act 1907;

In the presence of a large number
of people the foundation stone of   the
new  Methodist church was laid    on
Monday.   The stone was to have been .
laid by the Rev. George Dean of   Victoria, but owing to his unavoidable absence the ceremony was performed by
Mrs. Lashley Hall.     On the platform
were the pastor, together with the Rev.
I. W. Williamson, Major Adby, S. A.
the,local captain of the Salvation army and the choir and members of the
church.      Letters   of apology ■ were'
read from the Rev. Hugh Grant and
also from the Rev.. Mr.  Wilkinson.
After a few words by the pastor, Mrs.
Hall was called* upon to lay the stone
which was done in a'creditable manner.     Mrs. Hall In a'few words dedicated the church to the service    of
God.     A. tin box was enclosed in the

By G. Bernard Shaw
* * * I now ask you to pick up the
dropped subject of the spread of cultivation .
We had got so far as the apj-jearance
In the market of a new commodity—of
the proletarian man compelled to live
by the sale of himself! In order to
realize at once the latent horror of this
you have to apply our investigation of
value; with its inevitable law that only
by restricting the supply of a commodity co,n Its value be kept from descending to zero. - The commodity which
the proletarian sells is one over the
production of which he lias practically no control. He Is himself driven
to produce It by an inestible'impulse.
It was the Increase of population.that
spread cultivation and civilization
■ from the centre to the snowline, and
at last forced men to sell themselves
to the lords of the soil; it is the
same force that continues to multiply
man so that their exchange (value)
falls slowly and surely until it disappears altogether—until even ' black
chattel slaves are released as not
worth keeping in a land where men
' of all colors are to be had for noth-
.  .ing.
This is the condition of the workers today: They are no longer even
dirt cheap; they are valueless and
can be had for nothing. The proof is
the existence of, the unemployed, who
-   can find no purchasers.
By the law of indifference, nobody
will buy men at a price when he can
obtain equally, serviceable men for
What, then, is the explanation   of
the wages given to those who are in
employment,, and  who  certainly    do
not work for nothing.,
The  matter  is  deplorably  simple.
'* Suppose  that, horses     multiplied   in.
such numbers that they were to   be
had for the asking," like kittens condemned to the bucket.      You would
"    rfs*nirim?eT^f^a'1yourho"fs"e=feed-him"
and lodge him well if you used him
as a smart hunter—feed him and lodge
him wretchedly If. you used mm only
as a drudge.
But the cost of keeping would not
„■ mean that the horse had an exchange
value..    If you got him for(nothing in
the first place—if no one would give
anything for him when you were done
with him, he would be worth nothing
'   In spite of the cost of his keep.
That is just the case of every member of the proletariat who could be
rephiced by one of the unemployed to-
, day. ' ■        „
Their wage Is not the price of themselves; for they are worth nothing;
it is only their keep. For bare subsistence wages you can get as much
common labor as you want, and do
what you please with It* in the limits
of n criminal codo which is sure to be
interpreted by a- proprietary class
judge In your favor. If you hnvo to
give your footman a bettor allowance
than your, wretched hewer of wood,
it Is for Iho same vonsnn that you
give your hunter beans and a clean
stall Instead ot chopped .straw and a

This thoory of surplim value Is simply the Nclmitlflc formulation of the
fact that worklngmon had linen con*

workingmen didn't gut. a fair deal, thnt!

In wn-jen,
Now, this difference between what
you got nnd what ho gets Is surplus
Now, If out of the total product, of
his labor the workingmsn only r*j-
rfl«*•*•.« a part, then It Is lime to say
that he works part of the day for
himself and part of the day gratltously
for the capitalist employer. Let us
say for purposes of illustration, that
he works three hours for himself and
seven hours for his employer for nothing: This three hours we call his
necessary labor time, or his paid labor; and the seven hours we call his
surplus labor time or his unpaid labor. The product of his three hours
labor isHhe equivalent of his wages,
or the value of his labor power. The
product of the other seven hours of his
labor, his surplus or unpaid labor, is
surplus product or surplus value.'
Starting from the fact that every
workingman knows to be true, that he
don't get all he feels he ought to get,
the definition of surplus value, is, I
think, made clear.
But, we have been talking of surplus value and value of labor power
and we have not yet defined value.-
When we speak of the value of an
object we mean the amount of human
labor that Is embodied or accumulated in it, that has been spent in fitting
it to satisfy human needs. And we
measure the amount of this human labor by its duration, by labor time.
You, if you are a skilled, highly paid
worker, receiving, say, four dollars a
day, mya say that it is absurd to say
that an hour of your labor produces no
more value than a man who only gets
$2,,a day. You are right. Your hour
does produce>more value. The labor
time that determines value Is the labor
time of the average, untrained worker.
The only labor that counts is the labor that is socially necessary under
normal conditions for the production
of the given commodity. Labor that
is spent to produce a useless article
does not produce value. To produce
value the labor must service to satisfy human wants.
We know what surplus value    is.
Wc know what value is and how lt is
measures.,    Let us now see what is
Labor Power
When a workingman goes on the
market to sell something with which
to buy  bread and other necessaries
of life, what has he to, of fer for sale?
.-       -    *-a       .- ,
He cannot offer a finished commodity,
such as a watch, a shoe or a book, because he owns nothing. He has neither
the necessary .machinery, the necessary materials, or even the necessary
place in which to work to mako those
things, These all belong to another
class who by owning them, own him.
He cannot offer labor for sale because
his labor does not yet exist. He cannot Roll a thing that has no existence.
When his labor comos Into real objective existence lt is Incorporated with
the materials that nro the proporty-of
tho class that rules him, and no longer belongs to him. Ho cannot soil
what he don't possoss. There Is on-
ly ono thing he can sell, namely, bis
mental and physical or muscuar pow.
or to do things, to make things. He
can sell this for a definite tlmo to an
omployor, Just exactly like a livery
stable keeper sells a homo's power to
trot to his customers for so much per
Now this powor of his to do things
Is what wo call his labor powor; that
Is, his capacity to porform work; Its
valuo Is determined precisely llko tho
value of any other commodity, l.o, by
the labor tlmo socially necessary for
its production,
Tho labor tlmo socially nocossnry

that are necessary to enable the-laborer to come on the labor-market day
after day able physically to work, and
also to enable him to beget and raise
children when he shall have been buried by the authorities on some sick and
death benefit fund. In the example
used above we assumed the laborer
worked three hours a day to produce
a value equal to the'value of his la-
produced by the miners and give as
little in return.
This week I am presenting two articles on • economic . subjects ■ written
by men whose names and ability command respect by the capitalist class,
and Ihey are. worded in such, simple
language that even "the dirty faced,
ignorant miners," (a missloner used
this phrase) can understand.    ,,

Well, then, If he produces in three or
four hours a value equal to the value
of his labor power or wages, why
does he not stop work then and go
home and devote the rest of the eliy

He don't because he can't. Ho has

Why i3 he so helpless? Because
he and his class have been robbed of
the land and tools and all'the means
of sustenance and production and have
nothing left but that empty
legal liberty, liberty to accept wages
so small that they barely enable them
to live like beasts, or liberty to starve
to death and be buried in unmarked
graves by the public authorities.
The wage system implies this unpaid
labor and nothing short of the annihilation of the wage system will give the
workers justice and the full product of
their toil.

and Science." -*   ' ,'
many, will understand maybe for the
first time, why It is that the .workers
who produce all the world's wealth,
should suffer for want of the very
things they risked their health and
lives to produce; how it is that the
capitalist class gets richer and the
workers poorer. .

was run today under ideal conditions.
The governor general and'Lady Grey
drove in .state.' The plate'was won
in the easiest fashion in years, Hen-
drie's Shlmonese doing the trick. The

breaking in front with Shlmonese to
the rear some distance back. Passing
the stand Fort Garry, a Dyment colt,
was in the lead with Tottendale second. In the back stretch Fort Garry
and Tottendale had a furlong lead and
were racing like mad. Out,of the back
stretch' however, Jockey Gilbert let
the favorite go.and she, went,by the
leaders as though they were standing
still. , -;   - .
In the stretch Shlmonese went away
as-sbe pleased* and won in the record
time of 2.101-5. The win was a po-
scared Shlmonese over the fence with
their cheering. >

C. W. Hunt, the critic of the Edmonton Evening Bulletin, Is very ex>
acting and an attraction must Indeed
be. a- meritorious one to go unscathed. • The San Francisco opera Company played a most successful... engagement at the Edmonton' opera
house March 15-16-17, but Mr." Hunt
took exception to the work of the chorus. That tbe chorus has been lm;
proved greatly Is attested by the following from Mr. Hunt's writing in the
Bulletin of Tuesday, May ll: *
The San Francisco Opera company
has vindicated itself. Two months
ago ain extrcmoly disappointing engagement .was played in Edmonton.
The chorus of the' company was - bo
absolutely Indolent that tho effect was
disastrous. Edmonton did not take
to lt and said bo. The announcement
of tho return of tho company several
weeks ago waB received by theatre
goers with mixed feelings, Somo do*
elded to Ignore the company on their
return; others decided to witness the
opening performance, and last night
they filled the opera house to see and
hear Florodora.
Frank W. Healey, tho managor of
tho Franciscans Is a young man of
unmlstakab.o energy. Ho Is business
In evory ounco of his HO pounds and
tho fact that he essayed a return eh*
gngement hore In view of the rocoptlon
accorded his company two months ngo
was n point to bo considered. Ho said
he would bring this (Into an enlarged
nnd rojuvlnatcd chorus and ho told
the (ruth.
The nudlonco last night wns prepared to bo critical. If tho chorus had
been deficient thero would havo beon
a nolso. But It wasn't. Thero was a
finish about their work that was pleasing, nnd tho nudlonco demonstrated
beyond peradventuro, Its appreciation.
No mutter how clever tho principals
no.- how enthusiastically thoy enter
Into; their work, the chorus Is the essential In the, production of a comic
This time the Ban Frunciiciine have

of whom little criticism has been offered at any time, thoir engagement

■ The .attitude of the Coal Operators at the Mac-
, leod conference is' certainly as unique as it is char-
* acteristie.of that.organization7 Their
this: They attend, in the person of accredited legal'
representatives and delegates, a conference im
der the arbitration treaty, called for the specific
purpose of amicably, settling the troubles now present in the Pass. • At-the very outset they state
"that unless they have the closed shop business cut
out, they are ready for war again. Wfiat .chance
can there be for a, peaceful and mutually -'advantageous understanding with one party giving the
deathblow to negotiations right at the start? The.
onus for the continuation of hostilities rests now.
unquestionably with the Operators, who have thus
made an-arbitration board a farce and an impossibility.    . : " ' '\       '   '
One operator is credited with the statement that
"Jf the government wouldgive us enough red coats
we'd d soon,run the mines,"    They would, in
^th^ww'^s^taK"anyaiitage;"of government foreST
but refuse to enter inty government arrangements
for arbitration'. Certainlv! the'operators are ,a
strange and'fortunately scarce species.
The action of' the city council in turning down
the request for. more time to complete the post-office, involving a continued toleration of the present
nuisance, is to be commended heartily. In the west
we are used to doing things, and tjfe progress.that
has been made on the postqffice building is out of
all keeping witli the pace we have been going this
last year. Other business men have been forced
to come through with new buildings in the allotted
time, and you "have to,show us" why the government should, have any special privileges. Other
places which do not contribute one half the revenue
taken from this city are being royally attended to,
the Grand Trunk Pacific are getting every hang
copper-they ask for, and political favorites are being cared for and fondled by Laurier and his crew
from one end of the continent to the other. All
this time residents and taxpayers of this revenue-
producing • centre* are' forced to negotiate *an ■ entrance with a dark, dismal'shack, with absolutely
no conveniences, while a, couple of blocks away is
tlfe building, as the fire left it, which should have
been rushed, to completion with the same enterprise
as,has been other citizens. At present
it though a suitable inscription' for, the
corner stone would be "As it was in the beginning
it is now and' ever shall be. "      .7

Public-health is th'e fifst'thing that' oughtto 'be.
looked after by our city .council. At'present'the
residents of the -A.i'ncx, and more especially the portion-known as the Recreation grounds, ,ha\*,e. no.
water supply'. ' 'They'have to depend on one well
for drinking purposes, aiid as the ground there is
lower than the rest of the city it is not safe* to say
that the water can be healthy. Now that the hot
weather' is coming 'oil it will leave the residents
of that part of the city open to the dangers., of
typhoid and other diseases'. The population of
that locality is daily increasing and the city should
run the water there at once. If they aro -waiting
until they take the system over, why not get .the
C. N, P, Co. to run the.pipes down there and allow them for it. - It would not cost the city any
more than if they did it themselves and it would
onsure the health of the citizen.-*. Do not put, tbin
matter off, Delays arc dangerous.
"Trades unions are the bulwarks of the nation'
so spake' William Gladstone, the Grand Old Man,
and we wonder he does'not rise up in'his grave
at some of the,actions of so-called'union men. In
this city, as in' others, we have a few specimens of
>vh"elps that insult the unions Declaiming to belong
to them. Just at present these individuals are'mak-'
ing a very determined effort to*-break -up the Trades
and Labor,Council', "Why? Simply because when
they were delegates to' the Council rthey could, not
railroad their petty personalities through and put
certain people on the unfair list. ■•" At the late civic,
elections some of these miserable skunks .were loud
iir their wailings, and. tore into some-unionists because fjthey voted for .the men-of their: choice; arid
they themselves helped to' build' up. If is a sad
state of affairs arid 'we ,ar'e .sorry, that .we .have
* * -1***        ' • *       * ...»
to record these things, .but, as in the days of our
Master,;there was .a -Judas; among ■ the '-twelve,*'- • so
nowvin the,ranks of our unions in Fernie we find
the same low, down,' jiarrpw . minded, miserable
sneaks', who '.would, tear to pieces what they once
professed to stand by to the.end. And their price
is—trivial .personalities.    "•■".'

Tho written decision of Judge Wilson
In the case of Connell and Scott against
the£. C. It. A. A. for $659 balance of
,.- money due for work dono at; the clu'i.
follows: ■'■    ■. .,."'.
"The plaintiffs, as contractors agreed
to perform certain work on .the defenrt-
.ant's club building, borne of that work
' does not give satisfaction; 'some is good.
It, to, me, is clear that when a contractor lakes a contract he' accepts'all risks
as to surrounding'conditions-and ln
face of adverse conditions must perform
his* work in a good and workmanlike,
manner  and   must  leave  a  completed
• Job of that character. In this action
the questions in dispute regard
to two issues, the plumbing and the
s'tonji; qind cement work.; Tho„ drain
. called for in the contract has not been
dug. The plaintiffs contend that it
was.not dug by reason of the defendant's,request, and that, ln any case   lt
, would be of no benefit. As to" the*facta
j I- think there-is no doubt tha? the
matter was to an extent left open .when
O'Brien said he would see the committee'about It,' must be borne In
mind that there'was no request or dl-
'rectlon by, anyone-that the drain be
not dug.     As to, its usefulness I cannot
■ say, but I do not think that Is'mater-
ial. ' The plaintiffs went-and-did their
cement work without-any-direct uhder-
.    standing of altering the agreement as
to, the drain and  they thus took  „the
risk;arid certainly lt was'incumbent on
them to perform'a proper job, and that
'    they'have not done.
That finding seems to me to be based
on common sense as well as law.   The
defendants wanted a properly con'struc-
.   ted cellar and "they have'not got what
they contracted for. .  Therefore on the
drain, cement work-and. wall,they must
succeed, although  lt sems" to. me..'that
the wall can with little work "be made
good.      As to the plumbing,I find that
.  the'closets were notrput in.good work-
. lng„ order and on' that the defendants
■must succeed.    As to the urinal being
broken  there'- is  some' doubt  in      my
mind'as to that", or as'to' who Is't~o."b"e
■ blamed,( and I will give the-plaintiffs
the benefit of that and find ;in . .their
favor'7    I do not thinlc. that..the plu'mbr
ing in and around the bar was a workmanlike job, properly done.    As to the
>    cuspidor and the flush leadlng;-to, lt I
1 thlnltj'^the defendants'should accept;it.
-. The grating of course was defective but
I have found for the defendants as    to
 th_e  plumbing, £ejQ\^tl>£^Q'^.'i*XQn-'''i-''t>''t'
" proper"or improper.gratlng^B eliminated. ',Iri,face of these-findings defend-
4ants  colinsel  contends .that  the'' whole
• action', should be. dismissed. With this
viewjjt differ. I_t]ijpk;.j'tho payjn'^nt
made.was simply a payment on account,
and not] a payn^rit.'sp'eclally-.^'id'^a.on
the second contract. Tho result ■ is
that the plaintiffs must fall as to cement ;^ork, plumbing and repairing. If,
thc pajrt'les cannot agree as to' the am;.
- ount (hat should be allowed for.carpen-
ter wbHt on July 20 contract, then there
must tie an account.taken as to cost ot
repairing, cement work'and wall and
, putting ln goad workmanlike condition.
At the same tlmo an'account1 must be
• takon'.'', the. cost' of, all".necessary
pipe connections .under .the bar. ....The
■ contract of October 17 1908 "Is Itemized
as to'charges so that,.In.',- a
straight deduction of $180 willio made.'
Costs to bo spoken to. Plaintiff counsel was Sherwood Herchmer and L, P.

$ . HOSMER ~   .. v. I
The Fernie football club' had Hos'mer
asopponents in-a league game Monday
before a fairly large crowd-." The Hosmer team was: Hutson, Crooks, Overs-
ley, Climle, Sharp, Balderson, Dickie,
Gordon, Davis, Symonds, and-Wright.
The game opened about- ten minutes
late, Davis kicking off a's'Fernle won'
the .toss and elected to" kick with, the
sun and wind-at their backs: Gordon
took up the pass and he In turn passed
to. Dickie-wlio-had a good try for-goal*'
but Ramsey goflrijhe.'way and wltiya
good kick transferred 'the field' of operations-to'the-other end where Par-
nell ha<T- hard lines with a good shot,
and only clever saving by Hutsbri prevented othe down fall of Hosmer, goal.
It,was"easily seen n'ow^'that Hosmer's
run's; were lost. From a good cr.oss
shot' by Parnell the ball went out", of
play and Crooks-gave^a foul away'-'-by
getting off his heels when throwing in
; From the free klck-Fernle scored on
a shot that looked off side. From the
centre kick Gordon and- Davis had hard
luok In b'elng""blocked as V'goal seemed'certain i-Shortly after this half'time
blew and ;Fernie crossed over, leading
deservedly on the_„run of play, by one
goal to none. Whon play was resumed
It was noticed that Hosmer had ro-ar-.
ranged their tearn, Crooks■ going, out-
sldd.rlght*,-;DlckIo right half and Climle right, back..Right ifr'om the klck'off
l't:wus seei) that Fertile was bent on
-getting another' goal and they scored
on n beautiful, flh(\t,.Hutson',.making a
brilliant attempt to save, but was too
far out from his goal. Tho only foa-
turo of tho socond half was a woll taken goal by Davis and.tho great defence

One game in the league competition
was played on Saturday, May 22nd, Michel visiting Coal Creek. The game
was largely spoiled by the referee, who
was not in fit condition to take charge
of the game. »The finish saw Michel
leading by three goals to two, but it
was evident that had a capable person
been1 officiating that the game would
have been entirely different.
It was' generally expected that the
losing side would protest. This was
exemplified toward the close, the Coal
Creek captain handing the referee a
. protest which was latterly sustained
by the league.
Fernie 2; Hosmer 1
This was the result of the.league
game played arFemiFTon^MMtlayrthe-
24tlr. The game was a poor one. The
Hosmer side showed" an evident lack
of training, and the game was onesided. The old weakness of Fernie
in front was again evident, and accounts for the.small'score, Fernie just
getting home by the odd goal. * The
goal keeper was the'only outstanding
player on the Hosmer team. Fernie
were best served by the backs, but
the half backs were not so*'.strong* as

New Westminster won the 2nd game
of the Minto Cup series from the Re-
glnas with the utmost ease, the final
score being 12,to.2 for the Salmon
This makes the combined score for
the two games on which the possession of the cup depended 18 to 6 In favor of Westminster, and the showing
the champions made this afternoon Js
taken to mean that It will be, a long
day before the cup takes a trip to other parts.        '       - '
The game this afternoon was a farce
as far as a good exhibition of lacrosse
was concerned. The Reginas adopted
the same tactics as at the last game
constantly trying to draw out the New
Westminster defence but the latter absolutely failed to respond to the call.
Several times the Westminsters slackened up their terrible pace, but the
Reginas seemed utterly unable to use
their men to advantage.' They seemed to lack courage to bore in on the
Minster defence and at times completely loSt their heads. Alex:-. Turh-
bull'E check.was remarkably lax and
the old veteran roamed over, the field
at will, his .assistance being responsible for no'less than.nine of his team's
goals. *       . "
New Westminster played a strong
all round game,,'the style of playing
leading- many- to, believe that- .~tEey
slackened off the latter part of last
Thursday's game purposely'to add interest to the game today. In iridivld-;
ual and team play alike they had-it
all over'their adversaries and experts
simply laugh when-asked-to compare
the teams. . . "  •
' Before'; starting', the flrst'i'quarter
Feeney said Westminsters would
make four goals and the team went
one better,'while ,Regina did riot "find

seemed to be watching her now. ,vShe
waved ber hands toward the Virgin

stood ln its old place by the window.
"What a lot I owe to hor!" sbe cried.

whether, that most vivid and Indelible

Her attitude would bave been unchanged, but ber knowledge much In*
creaited. could she have been present
at a certain meeting on the* terrace of
.the,Hotel de Paris that same evening.
Markart was there, and little Rastatz,
whose timely flight and accommodating
memory rendered him today not only a
free man, but a personage of value. Bnt
neither did' more than wait on the
words of the third member of the party
—that Colonel Stafnltz of the hussars
wbo had an old feud with Mlstlteh. for
whom Mlstlteh had mistaken the
Prince of Slavna. A.roost magnanl-,
mous, forgiving gentleman apparently,
this spare, slim built man with thoughtful eyes. His whole concern was to
get Mistiteh out of tbe mess! The feud
be seemed to remember not at all. It
wns a feud of ronvenience, a feud to
swear to «t ttx* vourt martial.   He was
Afraid of Ghosts
as ready to 'accommodate .Stenovics
with the um or his name as Rastata
was to offer the requisite modifications
of bis,memory. But there, with that
supply of a convenient fiction, his pliability, stopped, ne spoke to Markart
using him as a conduit pipe—the words
would flow through to General. Stenovics.
"If the general doesn't want to see
me now—-and I can understand that he
mustn't be caught confabbing with ony
supposed parties to the affair—you
must make It plain to him bow matters

STENOVICS was Indeed in a quandary. Mistiteh had precipitated
an unwelcome and premature
' crisis. The minister's deliberate,
slow moving game was brought to a
sudden Issue, which be was not ready
to face. It had been an essential feature, a governing rule, of his campaign
to avoid, any open, conflict with tbe
Prince of Slavna until an occasion,
arose on which both and the
king would be on his side. The king
was a power not merely by reason of
bis cheaply won popularity,. but also
because be was, while be lived, tbe
only man .who could crown Stenovics'
operations'with, the consummation to
which tbe minister and his ally. Countess Ellenburg, looked forward with dls
tant yet sanguine hope. The army was
with him now. but the other factor
was lucking. The king's pride as well
as-his, affection was enlisted ln bis
son's Interest Moreover, this, occasion
was very bad.
Mistiteh was no better than an assassin. To take up arms on his behalf
was to fight in a cause plainly disgraceful—one which'would make,success very difficult and smirch It forever
und beyond remedy even If It cuine. it
wum no cause in which to fight, both
prince and king. That would be playing tbe big stake0 on a bad band, as
Stafnitz put It   . ■   ■ r
Yet the alternative? Starnlte.' again,
had put that clearly. The army would
have no more to do with the man who
could not. help It at the pinch, who
could not save Its favorite, wbo could
not release Barabbas,
The prince seemed to be ln bis most
unyielding mood—the Bourbon in blm
wns peeping
out*. For the
honor of the
royal bouse and
for tbe sake of
discipline Mlstlteh must die.

As a' household remedy, useful < in
emergencies, such ob are always arising in any home and particularly
where there are children, Zam-Buk Is
without equal. Here,are some opinions of its merit:
., Mrs. Halliday, Wroxeter, 'Ont., says
"I have proved Zam-Buk unequalled
for cuts, sores, and diseases of the
skin, .a In every case to -which I
have applied it, It has brought about
a cure and I recommend it to all mothers."
Miss Ca8sie Petrle, Victoria Mines,
Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, says:."For
a long time I suffered from pimples
and unsightly spots on my face, and
hearing so much about Zam-Buk gave
It a trial. ° It has now removed the
eruption and* I would heartily recommend It for pimples and for skin diseases.!' . - --• .„
County, N. B. says: "For months I
suffered with a running sore on my
leg, and although I tried several ointments and.salves,.none much
good. The sore would just heal over
and then break out again. I was advised to try Zam-Buk and obtained a
supply, together with some Zam-Buk
soap, I carefully washed the sore
night and morning with the Zam-Buk
soap, and then applied the balm. A
few weeks of this treatment completely healed the sore."
Mr.* Joseph Kostyuk of Woodlnrldge,
Man., says: "I had eczema on my face;
neck and hand, bo hnd that I was unable to lenve my room, Several doctors failed to do me any good although
I spent large sums of money, ' Zam-
Buk has effected what they failed to
do and I am now cured."

After the game the" players had a
meeting s and took to the woods via
the stumps rather than face the exasperated crowd.
J. Peck' McSwain, philanthropist,
philosopher, psychologist and peregr-
'' inating poet printer, was admitted
through the portals of the coal metropolis by an indulgent chief of police
last Friday,.' ' It is about three years
since Peck visited this section and
during that period has probably had
a more versatile career than any other
individual in British Columbia; He
has been everywhere except church,
and held every position except that of
a brass buttoned autocrat. ' He has
passed through many things including
the Fernie fire,* during which he had
the misfortune to fracture his hip by
dropping 45 feet out of the window
of the Napanee hotel. Peck, is a
clever and whole souled' advocate' of
the art preservative and never was
known" to turn down a friend or refuse
a drink. He ,is now on his way to
, Seattle where he expects to cross
trails with E. Payson Weston.—Nicola
.Herald.—Peck must have had a short
lapse of memory if he is responsible
for the "45 foot drop" yarn. But then
all's well that ends well, and here's
to Peck and his future travels.
