'   A. small fire occurred in the Struth-

morning.    * The'inside of.the store
'--was Very badly gutted and the.stock

'out with his life". - The fire apparently
-started in the centre .of the *' store,

mt*****M*viit Antn m^eifm THE
(By  Robert. Hunter)
Prince Kropotkin has just sent me
his last book. It is an appeal to the
British nation and is called the Terror of Russia.
It comes the moment when the workers of Britain are holding gigantic
protest meetings against the visit of
Nicholas the Monster.
In parliament and in almost every
city council the labor party has been
forced to riot and disorder in order to
show their hatred and contempt of
that inhuman beast, the czar.
The book is a calm impartial state
ment of facts. No man reading it will
ever deny afterward that hell does
exist.
If Jack the Rlppor were to come to
life again, open all the cells of the
murderers, organize them into a Bu-
reacracy and proceed to reek his vengeance on mankind, he could not exceed the brutality of the C74ar.
This-book of Kropotkin's opens up
■ to* us~ a world giving itself to martyrdom.*     Sweet, noble minded youths,
" beautiful, self sacrificing girls, noble
men and women being clubbed, poisoned, shot and hung.     >. ■     '
He tells of the awful life in the prisons, of exiles arid of executions and
suicides.
He suppresses the passion of   his
, heart; he allows no tearsto fall.   He
writes not one word of sentiment. It
is fact, cold evidence, testimony. The
eye witness tells his story.     That is
all. , y,
At the end of the   book Kropotkin
says: "I have done my best to avoid
anything that might'be a distortion, or
an exaggeration,of facts and yet the
picture is so" terrible that it is almost
shaking    one's faith in human progress. ■
;    "Suffering and martyrdom are cer-
. talnly   unavoidable in every struggle
'for freedom. But the amount of suffering and cruel repression now preva-
' lent in Russia'  surpasses everything

 liiat "t a~ia-.lv/ ,T ..-.. U444-."w-.a,— "-	
ern history.' ■
"Every nation is certainly bound to
work out her liberty, in her own way
with her'' own forces, however painful
the way may be. But one of the greatest achievements of modern civilization is precisely the feeling of intimate kinship among all nations.'
"It is now impossible that one na:
tion should suffer, as Russia suffers at
tho present momont without those sufferings having their effect upon all tho
family of civilized nations and.awakening among them a general feeling of
solidarity.
"Despotism ln one part of the world
reacts upon all tho races in the world.
And whon it takes such* brutal and
. medieval forms as lt takes In Russian
prisons and In the' punltl'vo expeditions, by means of which autocracy Is
malntainod In tho Russian ompiro, nil
mankind feels tho effect of such a returns to tho horrors of tho dark
ages"
Friends, wo have ns yot no powor.
' Wo uro but a handful ln this great
country, nut read this littlo book
of KropOtkJn'R if for nothing else than
to understand tho hypocrisy of tho
governments of tho  woBtorn  world.
It Is thoir support of Nicholas that
mnkoB Russian brutality nnd murdor
possible. It Is Uio monoy of woBtorn
bankers thnt koops him In power on
his throno.
Ono word from our wostorn rulers,
or tho refusal of Ioiiiik from western
banks, would moan tho end of that
inhuman fiend—tho Czar of the Rum-
slas,
ists   have offered a comprehensive solution.
The trade unionist desires to reform
the present system and the Socialist
aims to overthrow it. Where then is
the common platform upon which both
parties can unite? The unionist favors
the enactment of laws that will im-.
prove his conditions of labor, but the
Socialist cannot see how any real and
lasting good can be accomplisheo*
without the working class first obtaining control of the state and afterward
gradually removing the' industries
from the control of the capitalists, and
carrying on production for the.use of
all the people instead of for the profit of the few.
Some of our readers n*ii :• i.rge that
common ground has be-;a found in
Great Britain, but a study of their policy does not show that anything has
been accomplished except to shake
the solidarity of the different parties
by incessant fighting between, the
members1 who were elected on platforms that do not lead in the same
direction and cannot therefore be expected to harmonize , under any-circumstances.
, It is generally conceded by even the
most rabid anti-Socialists that Messrs.
Hawthornwaite, Williams and Mclnnis have faithfully represented the
working class, during the several terms
they have been in the provincial house
and if trade unionists were elected to
the House they would have to work
hand in hand with the Socialist members, if they desired to make a creditable showing.
The only independent labor candidate ever elected- in this province, W.
Davidson of Slocan, be6aine a Socialist
during his period of service-* in the
House.  , ,
The only solution.we can offer the
trade unionist who wishes to enter the
political field, independent of the old
parties, is to study the position taken
by the Socialists, and, if it is found
that their representatives are active in
the interests of the working class
alone, then they are worthy .of- our

'. A raging- fire visited"' Coal   Creek
yesterday evening, and before It had
finished its..demon work, a loss   of
, some 18 buildings was eat ailed.   The
, fire is supposed to have started, by
the explosion of a lamp in the -basement of the'Coal.Creek clubhouse at
about 6.45. The fire was first discovered by members of the club) who
noticed smoke issuing from the basement. * *The   alarm was at once glv-
/ en and everything done to   check the
-, flames, but. the Wood was old and dry,
and fanned by abigh south,wind that
blew straight.up thei.valley,-the fire
-   soon enveloped the building and then
spread to'others'.      7 .-,      .*   .
.'''Mr.  A..'Ber ridge, ..chief accountant
'   of the C. N.'E. Cpal Co*.,*immediately
7 rushed  over  and  got-" 1000 feet , of
.hose, but it was then discovered that
• there was no* supply * of - water, * and
the fire' practically had'its own way.
"An attempt7 was then made to blow
np some bf the houses In. the wake of
the fire, but- the attempt was futile,
.and the flames kept on-relentlessly,
.'until  the,wind, dropped. ■■ .,,-    •  ,-,
. Word' was 'at once sent to. Fernie,
, -aiid Chief McDougall, accompanied by
, some of his men and a willing band
of workers went up on a special train
and took some hose and other appar-
.-atus with them.      Gen.  Man. iTurd,
* Supt:   Simister,  Mr.-  Roaf  andt Mr.
Turney,' accompanied by Dr.  Corsah,
also "went up and did all in their power to' help out. the situation. ,■>
The flames, jumped across the street
to the Trites-Wood storo and the provincial Jail, and back to the doctor's
house, and, soon spread until half the
street was burned down, The flames
then jumped across the creek, but did
little damage as the. wind had gone
down.". . The roof of Levi Parker's
and some other houses were scorched,
but the men with buckets got them out
before any further'serious damage
was done. >-    , * ,
' Most oi the houses' burned were
large boarding houses, and the men
were out with buckets on all the roofs
doing all in their power to check the
fiery demon in his terrible work.
While on the roof of Mitchell's house
Dan Slavin, who is. well known in this
district, had - the* misfortune to fall
off and fractured some' of his ribs.
There were also several • other slight
injuries to the fire fighters, but happily no fatalities occurred.- <■
A few of the boarders in some of
the houses saved their trunks by'carrying them out and depositing them in
thebiish at the side ofthe hill, but
the majority liad not time.to act and
lost their'all. (     '   ,*   '   '
«.* Mrs. Michell claims to have lost
$500 'in-,cash, and Henderson's $600,
as Saturday, was pay 'day and their
boarders^had settled-for the month.
This will be a hard blow for them as
none of,their bills.had been paid, and
they had not had time' to deposit the
money in the banks. -
No doubt-dozens of others are in
a like predicament. Dozens moved
out, expecting to see their homes devoured, but on going back found them
safe and sound.       „   *     ■>    ' ;_
John' Biggs, John Bagley, Charies
\VIlliams, the barber, and John Evans had all been burned* out in the
Fernie fire of August last and had
just succeeded in getting their' new
homes in shape when this catastrophe
occurred. As soon as it was known
in Fernie large crowds congregated at
the' railways yards waiting for news,
and ready to offer shelter,and assistance to those in' distress.-,.
• The Napanee, the Royal and other
hotels and the Gill Boarding house
were among the first to send 6ffers of
free accommodation. Mayor Herchmer and somOc, members of.the council were on the spot to aid if possible,
and the Miners hall was thrown open
to any who* needed'shelter.   \       ,    „
The totalloss can easily be estimated at' about' $180,000. ' The heaviest
losers are the Trites-Wood Company,
the Club and tlie Coal Company.-'
Great blame was heard on all sides
about, the poor water supply, there being only a tiny stream from the hose.
The following is a complete list of
the houses burned, as well'as the occupants or tenants and the Coal Co.

On account of the fire the mines
were idle last night and very faw.
men went on at the morning shift.
It is rumored ,that the burned district will not be rebuilt - as the company require' the ■ grounds for increased trackage, and this may mean that
the residents of that part may.be forced to live-in Fernie., There is.also
a report that the club may not be restarted but this report has not been
verified. «    •        ,
Fred Varlow's. house was the only
one that was successfully, blown up
before the fire reached there. It was
thought Lo save others by this means
but 'the other attempts were unsuccessful. The fire at time of writing
was ^still burning, the bush down' towards and past tho tipple and unless
checked. will reach' Slav town, where
several families reside.      *'    •

To the United Mine' Workers of Amer-

■ Brothers—It has been brought to my
attention that an effort is being made
to create dissension and division in

is true, as every mine worker in the

and when we must negotiate wago
agreements for. another period of
time.
.For the information of our membership the following Is the condition in
all of, tho districts ,of tho country according to information received in this

a^
would mean a reduction in wages.
Regardelss of tho fact, that some of

averted in tlie Kanawha district. The
operators withdrew their demand for
a reduction, in wages and the mines
are now being operated under terms
of-the 1908 agreement.- Membership

of the organization,

took place in District 18 on tho 1st
of April and lasted, for ,three months.
International, board members were in
the district and advised against endorsing tho strike. Whd'n tho striko waa
finally ended, becnuse of the distress
existing among tho mombors tho International executive board made a donation to; tho district. Tlio district

Rates for advertising on application.
We believe, through careful enquiry, that all the
advertisements in this paper are'signed by trustworthy
persons, and to prove our faith by words, we will make
good to actual subscribers any loss incurred by trust
ing advertisements that prove to be swindles; but-we
do not attempt to adjust trifling disputes between
subscribers and honorable business men who advertise,
nor pay, the debts of honest bankrupts.
This offer holds good for one month after ihe
•transaction causing the complaint; that is we must
have notice within that time.- In all cases in writing
to advertisers say *'I saw it ih The Ledger."    .

things that are not ours. -",
A POORLY-ADVISEDaMOVE
COME OUT AND CELEBRATE
Monday; September the 6th'is'thc day set aside
vi'or Labor to hold forth in all its glory. Even our
very obliging civic authorities actually concede
the right of the union men to that day. They kick
* and grouch on any other occasion that any organized body dares to celebrate, but on' Labor day they
lie down like the good little dogs they are, and say
-'Go ahead, it is your day. " '
/We wonder if tlie majority of people havcvever
stopped to seriously figure out liov,'   many   good
•* staunch union men will take part in thc celebrations
and parades all through this district on this coming
Monday, theCth. "We would advise-the Liberal
and the Tory men to be on hand and see what a
mighty force yoi; liave to contend with." We venture
to s'ay that right here in Fernie alone some will
have, their eyes opened to thc strength of the unionists. '
GET WISE
Some news mongers with' very shallow pates
are always busy sending items to outside papers
about the doings in and around Fernie, and the
following which appeared in the heading of a Calgary newspaper in rcard to the account of the ,Coal
Creek fire shows that common horse sense was entirely absent when the item was despatched to the
Calgary paper: v°    ,  . '.

Canadian Miners' Union is not causing much uneasiness to the pffieials or members of the U. M.
W. of A. A little summing up of the situation
will convince any miner that his interests are all
wrapped up with the big organization, and that by
joining a body not yet large enough to^ command
notice, he is simply making a missile^ of himself to
be used at the instance of the operators to throw at
the heads of his fellow workmen. Those "who are
watching the progress of the campaign of slander
and misrepresentation being indulged in by the promoters, concluded long since that its ■ obsequies
will follow shortly iii the track of its inception.   •
NO ENEMIES—NO FRIENDS
An'individual who can jog along in any calling
without making enemies must be a new specie in
the human race.- The mere fact of-making ene-
mies shows'that you have hit someone on the head,
and,generally speaking,forevery enemy you make
in-;.the discharge of your duties, you gain two
friends. * ' ' ' ' '•'   ,
ARE YOU ON?
There' seems ot be a possibility of .an election
this fall. Are you on the voters' list? Are you
in a position to register a^ kick about the present
system ? The ballot box is the only safe way. Be
up and doing. '.
HAVE YOU NOTICED
It will" no doubt be interesting reading to the
workers of tbe world to know that King, Echvard
is said to have recently cleared up a million dollars"
on United States steel by a"tip,that J. P. Morgan
gave him. * "We have riot noticed any-material increase in our.dinner pail as yet. ' . ,   '
-A despatch -from' an old country paper .informs
our readers, that a satisfactory agreement has been
arrived at between the Scottish miners and the operators. This "will indeed be very welcome, news
to miners ..all' over "the country,'.as a large strike
seemed imminent at last .writing. <-..*.
-His most wonderful strength.now
showed itself for he managed,to drag
himself as far.as^the corner of Main

river along Sutherland avenue.,-ReVli-

corner where p£ 6. Gillis found him
later:—' --.<■ -"77'   • *   -   * .-:-.,■■«.■_

. As Gillis was passing he sa\^ the
huddled,figure bunched on the doorstep and leaned over him) when Olse.i
asked him,in a;very weak whisper to
get him' a cab as his throat was cut.
He then told the officer that his:throat
had been cut-Zand* he was sfapbed.
Dr. Gershaw'was sent for. ' Patrd-
man McDonald appeared and.thie two
officers searched the clothing of the
man and' found ', a,,wallet containing
$209 and a pass book on the Dominion
bank, a watch and. a chain, some small
change and.a corkscrew. Thomson's
ambulance was called for and .the .injured man-was taken to the geneial
hospital.--     ' , , , '  •" .-

only been in Winnipeg six month'.?. He
had nrevious to hi"; arrival in this fi .V

No clear statemsi: ran be oiki'i-.I
from him howev*--, as to-his pi .-.sent
means of livelihood •   "
The police are inclined to . look
askance at his "story, though the general hospital surgeon cannot yet sav it
the wounds were self inflicted. Thi-y
are under the impression tbat ' villi
such a- terrible loss of blood no man
born could reach Main street from tlie
rivor front. ° Also the fact--that his
money was intact seems to-them rather surprising, inasmuch ' as robber*-*
who would murder a man for" his- money would certainly take enough .time,
to get it..'-'-;'., ^,
; No Knife Found ■ _ (
. No knife however was found - in
the neighborhood where Olsen was
discovered. Also tiie fact of the* small-
riess of the stabs "on the neck'line, inclines tliem to the belief that he may
have made three or four attempts to
get the blade of Tthe knife into --his
neck before he'finally succeeded.
Against this is the fact that he had
a large sum of cash as well as a bank
account,' and being unmarried, could
not have liad home troubles.
A'visit, to his residence 283 Stanley
street at 2.30 this morning elicted no.
information, and the police now await
an improvement'in his'condition to
obtain a.clear and lucid statement^of

as there is around the town these Jpys. Tn e, the
hose are turned on certain parts" of the streets now

spasmodic1 sputters ,on the, dusty thoroughfares, but
no plan is followed out to in any way meet thc

Three   Years'   Agreement—-Six   Shilling Minimum
v

ing Conditions in Novaa Scotia
Conditions in
-     -fa.
An Old Country exchange contains
the following dated from London:
After many days of conference the
dispute in the Scottish coal trade has
been, settled. ' The minimum "of 6s a
day has been conceded lo the men under a three years agreement, but the
conditions surrounding that concession have been referred to arbitration,
he following official statement was. Issued to the Press at ten o'clock last
night at the offices of the-,Board of
Trade.
The Conference on the threatened
Scottish coal dispute was 0 resumed
this morning at the Board of Trade tb
consider, a proposal for settlement put
forward by tho president prior to the
adjournment of the Conference ou tlie
previous evening, based on the suggestions made by Mr. Askwith, chairman of the Joint Sub-committee. After prolonged consideration by both
parties an understanding was provisionally arrived at on tlie lines1 of the
above proposal, with various amendments.
, At'7 p.m. the miners representatives retired to confer with their col-,
leagues of the Minors Federation at
tbe Westminster Palace Hotel. The
conference met again at tho board of
trade at 9.30—Mr. Churchill in the
chair—when tlie following agreement
was concluded:
Terms of Agreement
At a conference held at the Board
of Trade, July 30, 1909, between the
representatives of the c"oal=owners of
Scotland and the Scottish Miners Federation,
1. The Conciliation Board shall be
continued with" the provision that
there shall be obligalory a neutral
chairman (whose decision in cases
of difference shall be final and' binding) to be selected by such method as
shall be mutually agreed up°on by the
parties, and, failing agreement, by tjie
Speaker of the House of Commons,
and the board and this agreement shall
remain in forco until the lst of August 1912, < and unless six months .. before that date notice shall have been
given by either party, It shall remain
in force "Ihereaftei, subject, to six
months notice of termination given by
either party at any time.
2. The principle of the 50 per cent
on 1888 basis as a minimum-wage is
conceded and wages shall not be reduced below that point. In respect
of the concession of nn immediate 50
per cent minimum lt is agreed
(a) That the basis price for tho 50
per cent, minimum,'' and the subsequent stops, shall be^ referred to an
arbiter. The references to the arbiter shall bo adjusted by parties, and
shall be on the footing that the relation' betwen prlcos and wages in   the
past is' recognized as equitable : for
the purposes of this arbitration;* and
that the new basis price shall not be
below the recent basis price—namely,
7s, 5.45 d. ' In fixing the .new basis
price and steps, consideration is to be
given to the effect which the granting
of an increased minimum wage would
have on the relation between prices
and wages, and also any other new
circumstance bearing on increased or

of 1904 was entered into, which the arbiter considers1 revalent.
(b) That if for any month or months
during the 'period from the date of
this agreement to 31st* March 1910 the
ascertained prices do not warrant a 50
per. cent wago under this, memorandum, then for a like number' of months
an increased percentage in. wages accruing under the memorandum shall
be diminished by C1-4.'
3. The neutral chairman, in giving
his decision as to alterations in the
rate of wages-shall take into account
the state and the prospects of the

I. Any difference regarding the interpretation of this memorandum, or
any difference regarding the terms

shall be referred to the decision of a

5. The arbiter to act under Clause 2
hereof shall be mutally appointed by

the Speaker of the House of Commons.
The agreement was signed by repro-'
sentatives of the'cqal owners-jof Scotland, the Scottish Miners' Federation,
the Miners' Federation of Great Britain and the Board of Trade.
The Miners' Concessions
Substantially these were, the proposals submitted to the conference yesterday by Mr. Churchill, .but masters
and men decided that it'was better to
sleep over them. This morning the
masters were the first to^frive'at. the
.Board of Trade, and- after tliey had
blen~coiSid^ihgTtTi^pTopo"sairtor~an"
hour and a half thej-epresentatlves of
the'men came in. The sub-committ-
tee, containing five representatives of
each; then met". Various amendments
were put, forward'and at the end, of
about six hours discussion the above
agreement was come to. The miners
fought hard against0sub-section B of
Clause 2. Under that sub-section a
statement of prices is to be taken out
every month, tho men having tho right
to audit the statement, and if the ascertained prices do not warrant the
minimum wage, then in the next following month, if the prices rise to

Everything for men
such an extent as in other circumstances would warrant an increase of
61-4 per cent, that 61-4 per cent will
not be granted during that month. In
plainer language, if the* men for one,
two or three months receive 6s.,a day
when the prices do not justify that figure, they will when a rise in, prices
comes, have to wait for an equivalent
"number of months before they receive
an increase. One of the representatives of the miners was determined in
resisting such a proposal, . but' the
others, after consideration, were inclined to believe that as the market
is rising the miners were accepting a
llftle or no risk. This.view prevailed,, and was .ratified soon afterward,
not only by the executive of the
Scottish miners, but "also by the/executive of the British Miners Federation. It was"'noteworthy however,
that the representative who .fought
against it failed to put in an appearance when, after the adjournment, the
general conference met to sign the
agreement. The point is. likely to
occasion a good deal of criticism with
a certain .section of the Scottish miners, but the majority of the representatives who consented to its Inclusion
are convinced that the market will
justify them.
The representatives of the miners
attach considerable Importance to the
fact that the minimum is guaranteed
for three years, and they believe that
that far outweighs any of the concessions they were compelled to make.
They welcome the liberty they haye to
break' away from the agreement at
any time during the three years in
the event of a strike'in England and
Wales. 'Tlie Durham and' Northumberland miners are having trouble over the Eight Hours Day Act, and, if
a national strike should be ordered^
the Scottish miners are at liberty to
come out in sympathy.
At the conclusion of the conference
tonight both masters and men expressed themselves as pleased with the
outcome of the negotiations. Mr.
Churchill was delighted at the success
of his efforts.   •
, The Feeling in Glasgow
News that a settlement had been
arrived at reached Glasgow about half
past nine o'clock, and ^afe welcomed
by those..fn. industrial and commercial
circles. Up to the last there was uncertainty as "to the protracted negotiations, and business suffered from a
measure of restraint. ._In. consequence
business may now be expected to-have
a 'somewhat freer movement in 'the
city, as well as in the neighboring"districts, i which are more closely associated with the coal and iron trades.
The evil effect of a lock out  'would
have been difficult to estimate in the
■a * -
The Effect of a Strike on the Fishing
Industry ±
- No class is watching the coal .situation with keener Interest than the herring fishermen' who own steam drifters. The Buckie steam fleet alone is
at present using about' fifteen hundred
tons of coal weekly., , Without their
coal supply the loss would be enormous, not only to herring fishermen generally,'but to coast communities directly dependent on the industry.
Speaking of the possibility of, merchants laying up stocks of coal for
fishing steamers a .merchant charac-
tinted that as1 practically impossible,
in tho herring fishing especially, because merchants havo ordinarily to
give fishermen' long credit, arid stocking coal would heavily handicap tho
merchant. ■ *

He was out of, the battle as much as
Markart; who slept the clock around in
spite of Stenovics'^shakings and°Dr.
Natcheff's .rubbings and . stimulants.
But he had done his part It was for
Zerkovitch to do his now.
The; king had died at 5 "o'clock? It
was certainly odd, that story, because
Zerkovitch h-fd just returned from the
offices of the Patriot,;and immediately
before he left be had. sent down to the
foreman printer an official communique
.to be.inserted m his paper., It**wns'to
the efifett that Captain Mistiteh and a
gu-ird of honor of fifty men would
leave Slavna next morning' at 7 o'clock
for Dohravp, to be in readiness to re*

to his country seat to complete his con-,

Captain Mlstlteh and a guard of honor for Dobrava! Zerkovitch decided
that hf> would if possible ride ahead of
them to Dobrava—that is, part of the
way.. But first he called bis old, housekeeper and told her to put Lepage to
bed.-' ■ .'•'*'     '
' "Don't worry about anything be says.
He's raving." be added thoughtfully;
, But poor Lepage raved no more tbat
lilfrht. He did not speak again till all
was over.- He had done his part.
. At 5 o'clock in> the morning Zerkovitch left Slavna hidden under a sack
in a carrier's cart- He obtained a
horse at a high,price from a farmer
three miles along the road and thence
set out for the castle at his best speed.
At 6 Captain Mistiteh, charged with
Stafnitz's careful Instructions, set out
with bis guard of honor along the same
road—going to* Dobrava to' await the
arrival of the.king, who lay dead in the
palace on the Krathl  ,
.But since tbey started'at 6 and not

" These two. changes—ofthe hour and
the force—were made as soon as Stenovics and Ftafnitz learned of Lepage's
escape. A large force and a, midnight

in-Slavna. The general did what he
could safely do to meet.the danger

" WHITE FISH, Ont. Aug. 17—Was
Maurice Ryan hanged an innocent man
at North Bay on June 5 for the murder of Joseph Ryan, his brother?
Or is it a mere coincidence that the
following autograph was found on the
walis of White. Fish' station yesterday:...-
0 "Joseph Ryan, Rutland, Vi., aTune
1908, westbound."
The signature was among huudreds
of others. At the trial a letter was introduced said to have, been written
by Joseph Ryan from St. Albans, Vt.,
and also evidence that he had been
seen iii North Bay in February, 1908.
Maurice Ryan stoutly protested his Innocence at the trial "and "I. am innocent," were his last words on tho gallows." • , , '
The autograph is not a hoax and although Ryan was known to be a poor
writer, lt may have,been written for
him by others. An- effort will bo
made to secure specimens of his
handwriting from the chief, of police
at North bay, for comparison.
It was never proven that the skeleton found in the woods in tlie fall of
1908, and alleged to be all that remained of Joseph Ryan was so In
fact. n '
It wasjn the fall of 1907 that, Ryan
disappeared, but the skeleton was not
found until a year after.,
