.•The strike situation,has-taken    a
decidedly improved stand* this "week,
arid it is now almost an assured .fact
i\.   . i
that [the representatives of the miners
V     ' ,'; .-!  .-i , <
and operators have been able to "ar-
rlye at a-basis of, settlement.; ,^Tho'
possibility for an Immediate settle-,
ment is'the outcome'' of 'the' 'majority
finding of the Investigation board, and
It/'isJ through their efforts that some
tangible agreement may be signed up
at.oiice. The BxeciitiveBoardfor Dis
trlctjl? U.M^W.'of A."met"at Fernie
on Monday, and opened up negotiations
with • the operators • who seemed' more
Inclined to do business with the men
th'an^at, any,previous .time.. ..However,-
.after) consultations" between the two
'parties .up to Tuesday no settlement
j appeared probable,- .,.•....-  "•• ".•"'--'.
'"On Tuesday tb!e majority of the op
eratqrs met in conference at Hosmer,
and President Stockett and Mr." Galer
met the miners' representatives'later.
This resutled in President Powell of
District'18 and Sec.-Treas. Carter being-sent to Hosmer to confer further
with jhe operators". President Stxicketi",
Mr. Galer, president*.Powell-ond*Sec.-
Treas .-, .'.Carter ^..were. In - conference * all

reached just before they broke up for
the day ,y.The basis of.agreement was.
one which could be' submitted to the
members'of the district for, their ap-
provar/orjrejIctionV' fit (would ^apRear
that the executive and.members    of

less work. -The.-evidence, however entirely disproved 'this contention.
The question In dispute about Lethbridge has been "settled tq'the entire
satisfaction of the executive which
■means that In future the Lethbridge
men .will be paid.-on-the eight hour
basis, ■     ,

The matter of houpe coal at Canmore'
was settled,'It^b.eing*agreed, that the
price would remain as heretofore. The
miners however, have had to waive the
powder questionras.McNeill's conten*
tioiTwas that7he;had a perfect right'
to charge as much/.as other camps'
\ Perhaps one'of'tlie greatest points
that the men have gained is the full
assurance from the, operators that they.
would not deal with any other organl*
!    I    •'
zation, but' the United Mine Workers
of America. They gave this assurance
as they heard it reported that two or
three other* organizations were trying
to get a foothold,In this district.
Altogether .the men have gained
some.vital points through the untiring
efforts of their representatives, and
the possibility of an immediate settlement and a return to work will mean
much to all.
' The District executive board officially, accepted Frank Sherman's resigna
tion. Win. ,.Powell,,the,newly elected
JVice-president, ,was, appointed to • thc

constitution, and'Clem Stubbs was appointed .vice-president.-      , .,    "'<■■■.■
One of our tonsorial artists^ and a

horse. However, owing to their position they could not get; a shot at
Bruin, who calmly stalked off into the

• The Commercials and Scouts played
what was supposed to be a game of
ball last evening at Baseball park, The
game, was a farce from start to finish,
both teams playing.poor ball. The
umpire took the heart , out* of the
game when he allowed several, runs,
after a runner from third who was 20
feet off the base when a - fly was
caught and one man down, was called
safe. Another break was made in the
decision over Whelan and the putting
of Gates out of the game1. If the ball
games are going to be run In this manner the sport will be killed outright.
Considerable money is said to have
changed hands as.a result of the game..

HORRIBLE CRIME
BYCHINAMAN
Young   White   Girl is Victim   of
Celestial's Hatred-New York
Is Fairly Frantic
►♦♦♦♦♦♦^
Letter Box
■< NEW YORK, June Si—That** Elsie
Slgel/the '20 year-old granddaughter
of General.Franz Sigel, of revolutionary war fame, whose dead body, was
found late yesterday jammed in a
trunk in a Chinese lodging house was
the victim of a Chinese for love of
whom she sacrificed cast6, home and
friends,'is the opinion of the police-
Their belief is founded on hundreds of
letters found today- In the room , of
Leon Liii'g, where   the body was' se-
c creted.
That the Chinaman had ceased to
reciprocate her love°and committed a
dastardly crime to free himself from
-, tlie girl's heart broken importunities
not to forsake her,'the police claim, Is
established by the following pitiful appeal which they believe was the last
letter written by the girl before she"'
3 left ber home on the 9th:
. "You seem to be growing cold to me.
Just think of the sacrifice I have made
for you: my family, my friends, everything.    For God's sake don't forsake
"me now.", ,       ,
The letters found ln the room cover
a period of two years, and among
those bearing late dates are many containing similar pleas, and showing the
mental anguish Miss Sigel's love for
the Celestial had caused her.*
Miss Slgel was interested In^slum
work, and It is supposed that she met
Ling, who is known to his American
, associates as Wm. H. Leon, during one
of-her settlement trips.- Ling Is well
.educated and speaks English fluently.
He is said to have been converted to
Christianity through the efforts of
Miss Sigel.
The room in which the body was
found is in the building In the Chinese
district on Eighth avenue. The upper
floors of the place are occupied as a
lodging house,    c,
Miss Sigel disappeared from her
home in the Bronx on June 9th. Since
then "the police have searched the city
. for her in vain and the only word received by her family during that time
was a brief, note which, according to
the police, read:  ,.
."Don't worry. Will be-home Sunday
- ev■e"ning^""*,   ''     T"™7 - "   :    ~
would be able to throw much.light on
the subject. -
The Chinese wife of Ye Kim, a waiter in the'Chinese restaurant" above,
where the body of Miss Sigel was discovered, is said to have advised the
police to question "Josey" intimating
that she could explain the presence of
Miss Sigel in the tenement the day
of the murder.
Kinni On Wing, a grocery salesman,
and Chin Song, a restaurant cook, are
lieid as witnesses under bonds of ?1,-
000 each as a result of the coroner's
hearing today.
Miss Mabel Sigel, a cousin of the
murdered girl told the police that El
sie left her home early in'the morning of June 9th after announcing, her
Intention of visiting her grandmother.
Investigation showed that the visit
was never made.
Mabel also showed that on numerous occasions sho had warned her cousin that' here Chinese acquaintances in
the city would surely, lead her into
trouble. * *      *
NEW- YORK, June. 23—Speedy solution of the mystery of the death of
Elsie Slgel is looked for as a result
of the arre3t of two Chinamen, believ
ed to be*Leon King or William Leon,
as he was known also, and Chung Ein,
his associate, the first at Schenectady,
and the'other one at Amsterdam, N.
Y. state.   ' ,    '
Police officials after consulting with
the Schenectady officials, said that
they were sure that the man, was Ling
In whose room the body of Miss Slgel
was found, i
The M?w York authorities will have
Leon brought to this city.
Denies He is Leon
SCHENECTADY, N. Y. June 23—A
Chinaman, supposed to be William H.
Leon, suspected of knowledge .of the
murder, of Elsie Sigel Jn New York,
was arrested here today in a Chinese
restaurant in South Centre street. In
every way the prisoner answers the
description sent out by tfce New York
police. He denies that he murdered
Miss Sigel.       ' ,
In the police court he answered all
the questions put to him In the coolest
possible manner. ',    '    '~r~7/~
He gave his name as Leon Ling,
but denied that he was William H.
Leon. He -said he had been ln this
city for nine days and, admitted that
lie came here from New York. „;
'(■AMSTERDAM,' N. Y.*Jnn$"23-^Chun
Sin,' wanted in New York as a material
witness in the murder of .Elsie Eigle,
was arrested today at West Galway, 10
miles distant.
The Chinaman admitted his Identity
and acknowledged that he-was a personal friend of Loon. Chung Sin had
been at West Galway for eight days,
bolng employed as,a cook by Harvey
Kennedy of New York, who has . a
summer residenco there, He admitted
that he had no, knowledge of his
whereabouts.   ■•

New Michel B. C. June 21
To the Editor of the Ledger,    ,
,.;Dear Sir: Please find enclosed ?1.00
for renewal of my paper. To* eulogize
your paper would be a superficial sup-
erfluity-a comparison with your "pothouse .cotem" in Fernie is sufficient to
warrant your issue.     I noticed your
transgression to Vancouver, for exercising in your paper   an inalienable
right inherent' to mankind, that    of
clothing your .thoughts   iii   language:
However there Is some satisfaction in
recognizing that   we are progressing,
for; Galileo was tortured for insisting
that the world moved, and Bruno was
burned" for believeing it.  Now however the rack Is giving place to reason,
the faggots to fraternity, but there are
still a large number who view   some
samples of so called justice »s juggle^
ry. Best wishes for your paper, I am,
Yours truly

A WORD IN SEASON
To the Editor of the Ledger:
Dear Sir: Will yon permit me to use
a little space in our paper for the following letter, and trust at the same
time that.you will give It all the prominence possible. By doing so you
will bestow a great favor on the undersigned.
District IS is about lo be'deprived
of their'president, a man who has sacrificed a great deal In the Interests
of the miners of this district, and the
workers in general ln this country, aye,
to the extent that the greatest of all
that is dear to mankind is sacrificed
by him, viz. health,-which is next to
laying down his life, not for a" friend,
nor' for his wife and family, but for the
men of his - class.. -* Are . they , his
friends? Not aM, for If words are to
count, many a miner has reviled him,
many have slandered him over some
imaginary grievance,. and have done
so not before him, so that he would
have a chance to explain and defend
himself, but behind his back and these
are the men Ex-president Sherman has
done the most for. ° Now, If these
men are reasonable, and are sorry for
doing these things "(ignorantly, for " I
think that men have done so unknowingly, or through false information) it
is an opportune time to make amends
and come in with the rest.of us and
show our appreciation for his services
not by giving back his health, for that
is impossible, but by giving what we
can afford out of our earnings to al-

This note was received by Paul Sigel
the father of the girl and was Btgned
"Elsie." It was dated from Washington, The police believe the murderer
sent, tbe message to stop pursuit and
to-give him :a;mple;(tin>e.: in ,w-Jilcli. to
escape.
„ When the1 body' was found by the
police it was jammed tightly in a small
trunk and was removed with difficulty.
Coroner Harburger is of the opinion
that the trunk had had Its gruesome
contents for moro than n week. From
deep marks on the throat it. was apparent that the girl had been strangled
to death, nnd all evidence points to
one of the most atrocious crimes In the
police records of New York*.
Ling, in whoso"'rbom on tho upper
floor of the building the body was
found, ennnot be located by the police,
He and another celestial are snld to
have disappeared the day of tho discovery.
Three Chinamen, known to havo
beon associates of Ling, have boon ar*
roBtcd, and will bo hold ponding the
capture of tho man whom tho polico
believe to be guilty of the' terrible
crime,
Added weight was given tho polico
theory of murdor by tho statomont of
Mrs. Todd, who Identified the clothing
of the girl, Sho snld that Miss Slgol
lived In constant fear of hor Chlneso
lover. Mrs. Todd said Hho hnd known
Elslo nnd Ling for yonrs nnd thai
Ling had told her often of lils groat
love for tho girl.
The Cblnoso, according lo .Mrs. Todd
wns of nn exceedingly jonlous disposition, und often accused Elide, of receiving iho attentions of othqr men. Of
late these complaints hud bocomo moro

The writer is in a position to know
that Mr. Sherman Is a very poor man,
and although he has a ranch it is no
good to him if'his health is gonei I
would like to meet any reasonable argument why we as miners'of District

Lethbridge Herald:.A,warrant has
been issued for. the arrest of Y. S.
Shepard, well known in this city as a
dealer In real estate and who has ai-
ready figured in several civil cases in
local courts.
. The information on which the warrant was issued was laid by William
Johnson, porter of tho Balmoral hotel.
Johnson bought some lots from Shepard and when the time came to make
the final payment of $20 he,paid it
and Shepard gave him a receipt   In
fun. ' ",. "■;'
. At that time however, It is said that
there was a caveat against tho lots and
Shepard could not deliver the title.
The charge against Shepard is obtanl-
ing money underfalse pretences.
Shepard Is said to be In business In
Spokane, and has apparently deserted
Lethbridge.' Ho was one of tho factors in the incipient boom that struck
the city a little oyer two years ago and
until a few months ago made his head
quarters here.
Formerly he ,'was' in business In Calgary where he Is reported to have
made a pile of money. When he came
here he made quite a spread and had
the swellest auto In the city. He Is"
a native of Port Stanley Ont., and not
yet 20 years of age.
" Several Fernie people will watch the
outcome of.the0case as Shephard Is
said to have got thc better of them.

On Wednesday evening Fernie lov
ers of high class music had an opportunity of hearing Verdi's    famous II
Trovatore   presented   by the   Boston
Grand Opera Company.     Much was
expected, and expectation were more
than .fulfilled by the splendid performance.     The singing of the principals
was Indeed a revelation to all present.
Unlike many other plays, the   theme
Is rather sad,    and Ihe    stereotyped
conclusion of "married and lived hnp-
py ever after" Is quite absent, being
replaced by a climax, sad, and almost
disappointing.     Below we give a summary of the run.of the play:        -   -.
II Trovatore/opera In four acts, tho
words by Cammarano, was first produced lu Rome Jan 19,1853, with Mme
Penco, - Mme.  Goggl, MM.   Baucarde,
GulcclardI and Balder! in the cast.
' The opera" opens with a> midnight
scene at the palace of Allaferlal where
the old servitor,-Ferrando, relates to
his associates the story of the fate of
Garzia, brother of the Count dl Luna,
In whose services they 'are employed.
While in their cradles Garzia was bewitched by an old gypsy, and day by
day pined away. The gypsy was'burned at.the stake for sorcery, and in revenge Azucena, her daughter, stole the
sickly child. At the opening of the opera his fate has not been discovered.
As the servitor closes his narrative and
he and his companions depart,    the
Count dl Luna,enters and lingers by
the apartment of the Duchess Leonora
with whom he is in love. Hearing his
voice Leonora comes into the garden,
supposing it'is , Manrlco, the troubadour, whom she has crowned victor at a
recent tournament, and of whom she
has become violently    enamored. -A.,s
she greets the Count, Manrlco.appears
upon the. scene and charges her with
Infidelity;  Recognizing her error she
files to Manrlco for protection.    The
Count challenges him -to combat,1 and
as they prepare to fight she falls to
the ground insensible.-
In the second act we are introduced
to a gypsy camp, where Azucena relates lo Manrlco, who has been wounded In the duel with • the Count, tHe
same story that Ferrando has told his
friends, with the addition that _when
~sHe~saw"her mother'burningshecaught'
up the Count's child Intending, to throw
it into, the flames, but by .mistake sac-'
rlflced her own Infant. As the story
concludes a messenger arrives summoning Manrlco, to the defence of the
Castellar and at the same time•* Informing him that Leonora, supposing him
dead, has gone to a convent. He arrived at the convent in, time to rescue her
before she .takes her vows, and bears
her to Castellar, which Is at once besieged by the Count's forces,
The third act opens ln the camp bf
the Count-where Azucena, arrested as
n spy, is 'dragged in. She calls upon
Manrlco for help. The mention of his
rival's name only adds fuel to    the
Count's wrath, andhe orders the gypsy to be burned In sight of the castle, j
Ferrando has already recognized her.i
as  the   supposed   murderer  of    tho j
Count's brother, and her filial call to
Manrlco also reveals to him that sho Is
his mothor. Ho rankos a desperato eff-'
ort to.rescue her, but. Is defeated, taken prisoner nnd thrown Into n dungeon
with Azucena, Leonora vainly pleads,
with tho Count to spnre Manrlco,* and !
at Inst offers him her hand If he will
save his life, He conRunts and Leonora ,j
VANCOUVER, June 24—One of the
most serious railway accidents in the
history of the province nearly occurred this afternoon at the Fraser river
bridge at New Westminster. Supposedly through a switch being,left open,
the Great Northern Express from Seattle due here at 3.45 p.m. ran off the
main track and on to the trestle toward the river. The engine and tender with the engineer'' and fireman
plunged into the river but almost by
a miracle four cars filled with passengers were left standing on the trestle
only a car length from the point where
the engine'took its mad plunge. Tho
combination baggage and mail car was
left hanging on the bank of tlie trestle
partially over the river. j
'That the entire train did not plunge j
into the river is due to the fact that)
as soon as the nlr connection was;
broken the brakes on the cars were au-;
tomatlcally set'. The accident occurr-l
ed at the New Westminster end of
the bridge and the train was proceed !
Ing slowly at the time.
Both the engineer and firemen   of
the train went down with the' engine j
and were drowned.   . The    engineer-
was George   Zeigwald of Seattle and
the name of the fireman is at yet unknown.
The engine lies in 40 feet of water.
Some, of the witnesses declare that
the , boiler exploded as it struck the
water. -
Bob Drummond, the veteran mall
clerk, was In cliarge of the mail.,car
and though his car was'in imminent
danger he escaped unhurt. None of the
passengers were injured and after leaving . the scene . of the accident.were
brought over to Vancouver on.the in-

LOOKS BRIGHTER
"With some' degree of assurance and certuint.v
the statement can be made that,tlie next few days
will see the cessation of tlie coal strike which for
the "past-few months has tied up the mines operated
by the "Western Coal Operators association.
The terms of settlement are of the give and take
variety, and are of such nature that they could
liave been arrived at weeks ago had not the, over
. bearing and domineering spirit of certain factions
of the operators made progress towards settlement
almost impossible.
To the casual observer it is passing strange that
- the Crows' Nest Company, tlie biggest _ concern 121
the Pass, could have signed up and* kept their mines
in operation without the loss of a day, while other
operators would not consider a'similar agreement:
- The fact that the C.,\L\ B. interests are no longer paramount in the policy of the local coal company is responsible iu a large degree for the change
in the attitude towards organized labor.
Of late" the'operators have shown unusual symptoms of uneasiness,' and in some instances almost
an.honest desire to get down to' business has" been
evinced.     Various causes have been ascribed   to
this, but well- informed persons claim that the law
.-,of supply and demand has had much to do   with
• bringing the C. P. R*. companies, or "Western Goal
' Operators Association, to a point where they would
.meet the men with the idea of bringing about   a
-speedy settlement.
No dispute is settled properly until it is   fairly
'-.settled, and we,know that the officers of■ district
;18. though they, may .desire and, wish to see peacer
™rwiiiTroi~s"acfifiee"the^hterests'rof'the-men-past—-"the
.pohiti where.correspondingly.great,advantages,'are
[gained....  .A settlement agreed,to by the miners
simply i'or the sake of bringing about a renewal
of .operations, would not be a lasting-.beuot'iL.-»tq
..the*communities, affected/or to' the men. working
,-under such agreement.  .'.'"        ' -'        . .. v
An agreeriierit Wbe': lasting must be mutually
advantageous, and.must contain clauses wherein a
certain amount of benefit will accrue to both par-
; ties'to it. ., Such an agreement, we .believe,   the
officials have'iii part obtained,.     .The district' of.
'f'icers have been handicapped in no small degree
by frequent changes in-the personnel of-the execu
tive, but notwithstanding this, every man to ■whoso
.lot lias fallen a duty for Uic furtherance ■ of thc
.men's cause, has performed his .part, big or. little
■ms it might-be,'like a man, and acquitted himself
with the-truoring of a veteran diplomat.    ,
Tho way the men have backed up the* officers,
and ihnt without 'international support, is certainly
an object- lesson for other bodios, whether miners
or not. True, there nre and have been murmurs
of unrest and almost open revolt, but in the"main
the spirit of fair play lias predominated the rank
■and file nnd they havo stood pat.
The Ledger sincerely hopes that operations mtiv
•;_l-c speedily resumed, but on a fair basis, nnd on
an understanding whicli from its very nature renders il, permanent and logically workable.

JUST IN PASSING
■   If some. Fernieites thought before they spoke,
Ihev wouldn't sav much.
Tlie musical critic of our local cotem and the
engineer on the aeroplane would make a good duo
in a certain factory in New Westminester.
A woman in the States has reached (lie great nge
of 110 years. She attributed lier years to the fact
that she ate onions twice a day. No wonder she
had such a strong constitution.
Tlie house moving business has reached such ;\i\
itcute stage in this nian's town that-pedestrians are
forced to peer anxiously up aiid down a street and
thon make a dash for the opposite side, for fear of
being run down by somebody's shack on"wheels.
; Don't .forget to, prepare for, 1st ofi
July sports. The Athletic Association!
are sparing neither time nor money to
make it a success. * ...
On Tuesday night a number of M*.'
P. and.M. cars were.derailed.in, the
vicinity-' of, the- "Y." • ■ Some, trouble
with the switch is said to have been
responsible' for the trouble. Consid-
erable trouble was experienced in replacing the derailed cars on the track,
causing considerable loss of time and
interfering with traffic. Fortunately
no one was injured in the mix up. .
At the Baptist church on Sunday evening the Rev. Mr. Williamson delivered an excellent address on' the
subject "Is Christianity True?" The
pastor showed by Illustrations, from
life in a most apt,way how the gospel
changes and moulds the lives of men
and women In alLagos. Music" was
furnished by the male quartette of the
church and by the choir.
When Premier ilcJJride comes to town it would
l)e well to drive him at a lively clip down the hill
to West Fernie over the bridge, and approaches
which it is understood that his government was
going to-help build. The effect on his nibs would
iio doubt be lasting and forcible.
• Now that the City Band have their instruments,
let .them not be sparing with their music; the city
has-subscribed liberally for them, and citizens in
general will never see them in want for music, new,
instruments, uniforms, etc. Concerts at frequent
intervals in some central place during the summer
would be greatly appreciated and would also awake
interest in the band. , ■ -
The cost of obtaining a garnishee is something
that is rather startling to the average individual"
A case is,on record in Coal Creek where a" debt1 of
$5.50 was owed;'",a garnishee was'taken'out and
the amount increased' to $20.-257 Legally "all-' these
added dollars may be explained away to" a1 nicety,
but to "the average mind the "affair looks decidedly
in .need of'"fixing./."      '    ,' '  _..,    ,    ',';'!, .
•'Fernie has*a brick yard, and-a good one too.
To. bring the'p'roduct,..of ■ this-yard-to the city.it is
necessary to come through .'West Fernie and-up
the West Fernie hill. One way to attain to commercial greatness is by fostering and'aiding what .industries-,we already .possess. ,,.'The -authorities' and
board' of trade should see. that every facility ■■■ is
afforded .for the oasy access to market and-shipping points is "granted to'this young company. The
present condition'of the roads and hill "is' a'dis-
grace. ' , .
The suggestion contained elsewhere in this issue that President,Sherman should be remembered
tangibly by the miners of District 18 is'worthy of
further thought nnd action. President Sherman,
while in possession-,of health and strength, .gave
unsparingly of his best-days to the advancement of
District 18. Now that he has come to the end of
his ability to serve the mombors of District 18, it
is incumbent upon the members to think well.of
his past record, , Thc district is strong numerically; mid and oould well afford to pny a fitting tribute to a man who gave his bost for the men.
Thc suggestion in last week's Ledger that wo
nro onlillod 1o some.sort of supplementary education for lho men and boys of tho mines has provoked
considerable discussion in certain circles, and, although it is early to predict results,, there is un-
doubl'odly n general fooling that somo such movo
would lie in Uic right direction,'and would lie giving tlio mino workors nnd thoir hoys nothing but

■ The full text of the finding of the
board of conciliation' in the dispute between the Nicola Valley Coal & Coke
Company and its employees Is now,to
hand. It is as follows:
In thc matter of the Industrial Disputes Investigation act and in the matter of a dispute between the Nicola
Coal and Coke Company Ltd; and lis
employees,' the board composed of
Messrs. T. C. Brooks and T.'Kiddle,
with Judge Lampman. as chairman after having visited the mines in the Nicola valley and having taken evidence
and considered the various matters re-
-ferred'to it, begs to report as follows:
./ The nature of the complaint or grie-
'.   •     .    'I . \a
vance is first) given and then'-the conclusions of the board: '
-' 1—Complaint—The nature of this
dispute is a charge of discrimination
by the company, against James Hard-
man, who was discharged for, an alleged offence of firing.a fast shot. •• •
* Tlie board is of the opinion that thc
company was justified in discharging
Hardman .and that there was.,no discrimination against ..hlmwwlthln._.the
meaning of the complaint. Mr.. Brooks
does not,agree'with this' finding ancl
holds that -the- evidence .shows* thai
Hardman did not fire'the shot and he

FOOTDAIili
The league championship was ., advanced another stage on "Saturday last
June- 19th, aud the position of the
leading clubs bn°the table undergo a,
change. Fernie, as a result of theii*
falling to Coal Creek, lose their position at the top, which they-have occupied for some weeks, and now take
second place. Michel, last, year's champions, head the list with'11 points for
6 games played, and occupy a commanding position., Coal Creek are in
tl-iirt i*l;'.ee, but occupy a relatively better position than Fernie, who have
played three more games but .are only
two points better. The position of the
other clubs remains unchanged.
Of the games played on Saturday
that between Fernie and Coal Creek
was the most important, and a really j
first class game was the outcome.. The I
play was fast from start to finish and J
Coal  Creek showed surprising form, J
and won out by 2 goals to 0.
. Frank had a-runaway victory over'
Hosmer,  the final score being    live
goals to nothing in their favor. Now*!
that they have commenced to win. I
expect to  see tliem take a position
among the leaders; they have a good
side and are still adding to their list
of players.
*. Michel defeated Bellevue in their
league game at Michel by three goals
to 0. The first half was evenly contested, Michel just managed to snatch
a goal before the. Interval. In the
second half they wore down their opponents and added'other two goals.

on the table are given below:      7''~

FERNIE 0; COAL CREEK 2.'
This game was played at Ferine in
ideal football weather .The evening
'was nice and cool as the result of a
few light showers in the afternoon and
everything' was favorable to a fast
~gam&^__Jhere_ffias_a_jarge turn "out
of spectators, ttie red and white ribbon
being very conspicuous. Both sides
turned out .tlielr best available team,-
and the line, up was as follows:   .
Fernie; McDonald, Ramsay and Bow-
hill; Mills, Klnnear and Price; Davie
and Smith, Henderson,. McEwnn and
Buchanan.
'* Coal Creek*. Lunn; Allan and Mc>
Fegan; Sweenie, Parnell and Johnson,
Phoenix and O. Jolson, Manning, P.
Jolson and Hartwell.
-   Fernie won the toss and played with
{what littlo wind there was behind
theni.  Manning kicked off/for   Coal
•Creek and right nwny the play was
forced Into Fernio territory, but Bow-
hill clenred with a long drive, Smith
nnd Davie got away on the right, but
the ball wont Into the touch. From the
throw, ln Parnell sent, well upUie Hold
' and Manning passed out to the right,
but Phoenix shot past. From tho
goal kick Fernio made ground. Henderson caught up n pnBB from Klnnear
nnd rounding Parnell, paused to Mc*
, Ewlng, but Allen Intercepted and play
wns transferred to the other end.
Smart work by Conl Creok left took
play In on Fornio goal. Hartwell sent
across and Manning aftor mnnouvoring
for position, shot over, tho ball just
skimming tho bar, .Mldfleld piny followed, but strong play by Fernio halfi*
forced play IntoCoal Creek territory,
nnd a corner wan gnlnod.. This was
so well plneod by Davie Ihnt It struck'
tho upright and hounded bnck to htm.
Ho -shot ngnln nnd tho roforoo gnva a
free klek ngnlnut lilm. Aftor tho froo
kick thc homo Hide ngnln took up tho
offmiHlve nnd Klnnonr from a good po*
Hltlon Hhot for tho corner fins. At tho
othor end Fnrnlo'u goal underwent, a
narrow osenpo from a flno crow-* by
Hiiitwoll. Phoenix got *,bo ball In
sldo tho hIx ynrdH lino and Hhot tamely
piM. A foul ngaiuHt IlnmHny for
tripping nn opponont. wn« grnnlod In
Hlilo tlio penalty area, Coal 'Crook
mnile a Htroni* clnlm far rt penalty but.
UiIh wiih rofuw'd. .Nothing cnmo of
the free kick mid piny wiih trnnHforrod
to midfield.     Coal Creek returned to
i the attack and Ramsay stopped a very
| strong shot by'Peter Joison withjiis
j hand."   The referee granted a penalty
and McFegan was entrusted with   the
kick.     Excitement ran high.but   McFegan spoiled his side's chances   by
j shooting over.     After this narrow es-
J cape Fernie took up the running and
a long drive by Mills was easily cleared by Lunn.     The game continued'on
fast lines and slightly In favor of Coal
Creek,   whose  forwards   were   smart
on tlie ball.     Another corner was forced by Fernie and Davie again placed
the ball nicely in the'1 goal mouth, but.
Coal Creek cleared at the expense of
another corner.     Davie was proving
himself an adept at taking corners, —
this one raced along the cross bar, but
ultimately went past.     The game, was
even until the Interval when   neither
side had scored; half time a draw no
scoring.
On resuming after change of ends
CoarCreek took up the running.. A
fast, shot by Hartwell, wlio had gol
past the backs, was saved by McDonald. Fernie forwards could make
no headway-against the opposing defence, the Coal Creek halfs were untiring in their efforts, and Harry Allan
was playing a great game at back. Tlie
Fernie defence was also playing strong
but they had a set of tricky forwards
to deal with, and were hard put to It
at times to keep their- lines clear.
Price and McEwing exchanged, positions this half but there was no'improvement. Never was Fernie's weakness in front more noticeable than on
Saturday; of course this was largely-
due to the excellent play of the half-,
backs opposed tb them, but still,   a
front'rank comprising three half backs
one forward, ancl a passenger,,can never hope, for any great success.   This
half -vvjent largely    in favor of Coal
Creek, but they were very unfortunate
in their shooting     Fernie got away
on-, several occasions' but  they were
never allowed to become really0dangerous.     Once in this half they got
the ball Inside of the penalty line, but
Smith was penalized for fouling   McFegan'. ' ■ At the other end Phoenix
made a great attempt to get through
and , almost succeeded but force    of
numbers beat him.     Jamie Henderson
l^as~pla:ying~a~good-gaTfie-ln-the»out--
field for Fernie, but when it came to
finlhsing he had' no' Idea where the
goal lay.'  Ben Smith was inclined to
be selfish which Is a foolish policy at
any time, and, extremely so when up
against a half back of the calibre _' of
Bob" ~ Johnston.      Davie  had  a  fine
chance „ to open the scoring, from a
cross by Price,- but he hesitated   in
shooting and the chance was   gone,
McFegan kicking out'.     As the gamo
wore  on  there  was  every  prospect
a draw.     Coal Creek were doing the
-bulk of the pressing biit could not get
the ball past McDonald. Ten minutes
from the close a cleve ruse by   Owen
Jolson Initiated a movement   which
ended, hy,Coal Creek opening tho scoring.     A throw J«a wns given well up
the flold, the halfs nol being up,    O
Jolson picked up the bull nnd shying
it against  Phoenix, worked tho   bail
around the backs and crossed, his brother Peter picked up tho ball    arrt
bunged Hi might for goal, aiid tho shot
heat  McDonald all the way, thus re-
glHtei'lng the first,,goal of the match,
A Hceno of great excitement followad,
Coal Creek supporters giving way   tri
their feelings In no uncertain mannev,
Fornio made a great effort to draw
level and certainly forced iho gin.-.o,
but were unable'to break down   the
Crook dofenco     At   tho othor,  ond
strong play hy Manning let ln Pet or
Jolson ngnln nnd he shot nnotlior fin;
goal,     Coal Creok were now all ovor
their   opponents and tho Fernio goal
ran mimurouH narrow osonpoB,    N.
ono was moro prominent than Porui
Jolson,     He Ih really   a wonderful
player for IiIh Inches,      Ho    v ouM
Heom to slip In from'nowhere, plct up
tho ball and worlc past nil opponltlor,
nnd shoot, for goal In no uncertain manner, McDonald on nil fours savod tin*
othor flno Hhot. by thnt player.   ..nnl;
Manning tried hard to Hcoro ou his
own but ho wiib loo woll looked nftor,
Coal Crunk pressed till the cIoho, imi-..
ran out wlnnei-H by 2 to 0.
The gume  was n splendid om* lo
watch, and probably the best ever witnessed in Fernie. Interest was su*v
tained right up to the close: On the
day's play the better team won. Tho
winners all played well -and displayed
form oi which" few thought them capable. *.* For the losers the defence p.a
up .a sound game aud only gave' way
after continued pressure. The for
wards were weak, and none was "more
disappointing than McEwan,- from*
whom much was expected.. The score
indicates the difference in the team.*
as Coal Creek were quite two gonU
better than Fernie.
MOYIE VS. CRAXBROOK
? The first match for the Kerrigan cup
"of which the, Moyie team are the holders-was played, on the grounds at Al-
drich. Considering the weather there
was.- a good attendance. The game
ended in favor of Moyie by 0 goals to
3. For the Moyie team Hillary", Chambers, Marshall and Kemp showed great
form. For the losers McEwen, Chirk
and Lumsclen showed up well. Moyie
has been trying to arrange with Fernie
and expect a match the first open date.
Fernie has been interviewed by Mr.
Herb Jackson, the Moyie trainer, and
it Is understood that arrangements are
complete.

hotel and the'Klng's.He approached
The .Ledger team with a view, of introducing if but Rochoii'is pitching" so

anything to do."~
The officials 'of the baseball league
have decided to cut the prices of admission to the grand stand, and in future gentlemen will only have .,to pay
15c. and .ladies and children luc.This'
should mean a very liberal patronage
of the stand. The league have gone to
considerable expense in erecting this
stand and the fans should heartily reciprocate by using the stand, If they
stand In the crowd they generally drop
In 10c or 15c'. so they might as well sit
comfortably <ln the stand and get
their money's worth.

The City Baseball League was advanced another stage on Monday'even-
Ing when the Scouts and Ledger nines
played a scheduled game, the Scouts
being'to the good by the score of 15
to 6^. The' play was really much
more evenly divided than the score
would indicate, for apart from that
fatal first when, the Scouts walloped
out six runs, the game was close and
some good ball was seen, several shut
outs being pulled off. The Scouts
opened up a fresh can of old timers,
who were'let loose that-night for the
first time in years, and'they are some
ball players yet. Andy Hamilton,
learned the game oii a corner lot ln
Bruce, and was tried out at short.
Kastner was planted on the first corner, and except for a little stage fright
looks llko a good one, Ed. *.Vrlgles-
worth attended to deep centre, but
Texas league drives were few and far
between, so work was light there.
Sammy Walters was on hand with a
good assortment. He was touched up
for several hits, but kept' them well
scattered. Con. Whelan caught^' a
good steady game, and has got second
down to an Inch, which is half the
game.      ' ' •
- The Ledger team was weakened by
the absence of Jimmy McDougall who
was busy^ trying on baby shoes at his
dad's big sale. Moody was moved
to short and played a consistent game.
-Rochon^twirled-fpr-the-Ledger-'.and,
considering the state of his arm, was
credited with a good game, though,he
was found pretty .often by the Scouts.
Fred Kirkpatrick backstopped for Rochon, and was in .the game from the
start to finish. Kennedy at left gath*
ered up a couple of,long drives, and
afterwards played .1st." The outfield
was covered about as formerly, except
that Buckley was moved ln from centre to 2nd, which place he held down
nicely.
No one cnn accuse the Ledger nine
of being quitters or'f.tinkers. At all
times we are ready to win or loose In
good part like goods sports, and tn
far we have had several chances of
losinf*-, of which we havo ttii.en advantage, To win the game Monday night
we would have had to bent, ten men-
nine Scouts and Umpire Pollock. Pollock may mean „weli. but that has littlo
to do with the outcomo of ftio game.
At no stngo of tho gnmo could it be
said that ho had play well ln hnnd.
Punk, punk for yours Pollock.
The Athletic Association have their
programme of sports almost arranged,
and baseball will be the predominating feature. , Elko, Wald6,;'Fernlo and
possibly Hosmer will be the competing teams, so some real good games
are'likely to bo seen.
Tuesday' evening a team of braves
came up from Elko and-were met by
an equal number of Fernie city leaguers. One'of the best games of "tlie
season ensued at the end of which the
home nine were to the. good by f to
2. Con Whelan and Quinlan were'tho
battery for the winners, Whelan pitching-a superb game. Elko has. a
classy team too with Todhunter as
twirler.. ■ •
Fred Roo, the Grand Duke of Roos-
ville was along, and it is .whispered he
was the hoodoo.

The Coal Company and' Bruce's
Carpenters started on _a league game
Thursday'night, and had.reached the
third .innings wheii the old man on top
of Mt.'' Fernie turned on the hose and
showed no signs of letting up, so,the
game was called. The Coalers had'
the big end of the score board .when
play ceased,-but the game will* have
tb be played over or'finished again.
The'Carpenters' poor, base running was
their drawback. -In the third two
hits filled first and second; ■ four wide
ones moved the others' two up.'and
the corners.were all full. But the-way
the first and second base runners held
Tn~fo-their"corners-was-great-to-behold-
and they took no chances whatever.
By nice work Quinlan pulled himself
"out of the hole and retired the-side.

prince might do nothing right.   If that
prayer were granted • star' od ' her - pa rt *
.would become superfluous:* Ste, prayed
vnot  to  be led  Into  temptation—that
sounded quite orthodox.   Was' she to
rpresuuie . to  suggest' to*' Heaven   the
'means by which temptation should be
avoided?.,   .       _   .   , ._ _■_   -.
k- Stenovics,,skillfully   humored -this
"shade of hypocrisy.   When he spoke to
-her there were iu his mouth no such
1, words us* plans or'schemes or hopes or
ambitions—no, nor claims nor rights,
,it was always "the possibilities we are
ciinipelled to, l-ontemplate." "the steps
iive "mny be forced Into taking," "the
necessities of mere self,defense," "the
Interests  of  tlio  kingdom."   "the su-
rpivme evil of civil strife." which last
most respectable phrase meant that lt
wns much bettor to jockey the prince
"out of Els throne than to light, him for
it.    Colonel Stafnltz bit his lip and
gnawed bis mustache during, these Interviews, The countess saw—and hated
him.    She turned buck  to, Stenovics*
chnrchgoln-a'   phrases   and. Impassive
face.   Throughout the .vhole nffuirthe
general probably never once mentioned
to her In, plain luugunge the. one and
only object of'all their hopes and efforts.   In the result busluess took rather, longer to trunsuct, the cburchgolng
phrases ran to may-syllables, but concessions must be made to. piety., Nor
was  the countess" so singular.,, We
■should often forego "what we like'best
If we were obliged to define It accurate
ly and aloud/
* After' one of these conferences the
countess always prayed.    It. may  be
presumed tbat she prayed against the
misfortune of a cast Irou terminology
Probably she also urged her, views, for
prayer is fn many books and mouths
more-of'an* argument than a petition,
that all marriage*** were on one and the
same footing uud^ that Heaven knew
naught of a particular variety named
in some countries morganatic.   Of the
keeping of contracts made contrary to
the presumed views of Heaven we are
~all aware that churches, and sometimes
states, too. are apt to'know or count
nothing..   _, ......'
Such were the woman and ber mind.
Some pity' may go out to her. In tbe
end. behind all her prayers and inspiring them, nay, driving ber to her knees
In fear, was the conviction. that she
risked her soul. ' When she'felt that,
she pleaded that It was for her son's
sake. Yet there lay years between her
son and inan's estate.'  Tbe power was

, "If l had the countess' views and
temperament I should grow<. potatoes
nnd If possible grow.them" worse than
my neighbors," said Colonel Stafnltz.
"If-1'lived dully I should at-least die
in peace!"--      '     ■ J( "   *  *
The king held aovery confidential conference. It was to sign his will. The
countess w a s

The king sat a* moment with a"frown

A'-ross'this silence* came a loud voice
from the nest room—Lepage's voice:
"Take care!" Take, en re! You'll upset
the flowers, prince!"', V. ' ->
The king started. He. looked around
at"his companions. Then he struck a

"Don't do It again!- It's

A dull* red patched
Countess Elleuburg's
cheeks. , Lids brooded,
low* over the eyes of
Stafnltz and , ot, Stenovics. It wn** a very
uwkwaid little scene
The king's irritation had
got the, better ol lilm
for the moment.-' What
would the kindred of
the exalted princess
havesaldV The king turned,to Count
ess Ellenburg and forced a smile.
"The *|uestlou of'reproof Is one for
you. countess." he said frigidly. "And
now about the baroness—* No, I mean
1 wanted to ask if my wishes have
been communicated to' the Prince of
Slavna.". ■ . <- . .
"The prince bas received them, sir.
He read them In the presence of my
messenger and requested leave to send
his answer lu writing, unless be might
-wait on your majesty."..
"There are reasons why I had better
not see - him just now. Ask him to
write, but very soon. The matter isn't
one for delay." The king rose from hiB
seat.       ' '
"Your  majesty   still   wishes  me to
send for Baroness Dobrava?" ,
-  The king reflected for a moment and
answered simply. "No."'       ■■   .
His brief word broke ,up tbe conference.'It had 'already lasted louger than
suave**-and* reassuring Dr. Natcheff
would have advised. The men* went
away w.lth a, smile, all1 of them. tbe.
king, Stenovics. Stafnltz, round faced
Markart, each smiling according to the
quality of'each, their smiles answering
to Max von Hollbrandt's shrug of the
shoulders. There ure things which bring
=G3en=to=what-psinfui-5-youtij=wn3=tauguir
to call the least common denominator.
A horse race does It, a "prize fight, a
cricket match, a-buttle, too, in some
sort. Equally efficacious very often,
though it; is to be recorded, with reluctance, la a strong flirtation with no
proper Issue obvious.
The mntter- was grave, yet all the
men laughed. The.matter was grave,
and Countess Ellenburg did not laugh.
Wns that what Stafnltz called her
views nnd her .temperament? In part,
no doubt. Besides, men will laugh nt
tbo side Issues,of the gravest affairs.
It Is not genera liy tho case'with woman. Added < ngiiln to this, perhaps
Countess Ujlenburg know more or divined more'.. Anirng glaring diversity
.there,wn.s»|:erhnps something,-nn atom,
of similarity between li<|r and Sophy-
not the something which refuses, but
■the something which couples'high con*
.dltlons with us'sent. The -'thousandth

It might make his marrlngo more entirely nn nltnlr of duty nnd of Btnto.
With this Idea they mulled nnd shrugged, The whole IiusIhohb came under
the head which In' their thought**'and
thoir ,'eonllda.nthtl convUrflatlons .'they
would style nonsense.

' They talked over.the sense of tbe reply. Max tlieri drafted It,'-'The prince
did no more than amend certain ex-,

A Clean Man
Outside cleanliness is less,than ball tbe battle. A man may
scrub himself a dozen times a day, aiid still be unclean. Good
health means cleanliness not only outside, but <nside. It means
a clean stomach, clean,bowels, clean blood, a,clean liver, and
new, clean, healthy tissues. The man who is dean in this way
will look it and act it. He will work with *ner**y and think .,
clean, clear, healthy thoughts.
He will never be troubled with liver, lun**, stomach or blood
disorders.   Dyspepsia aad indigestion originate in unclean stomachs.    Blood diseases are found where there .'s unclean blood..
Consumption and bronchitis mean unclean lungs.
Dr.: Pierce's "Golden Medical Discovery
prevents these diseases.   It makes a man's insides clean
■■  .       «nd healthy.   It cleans the digestive organs, make* pure, '  .   .
clean blood, and clean, healthy flesh. ..-..."'.
It  restores  tone to the nervous system, and cures nervous exhaustion and
prostration.   It contains no aicoho! or habit-forming drugs.'"
•    Constipation is thc most unclean uncleanliness.   Dr. Pierce's* Pleasant Pel-
.lets cure it.   They never gripe.   Easy to take as candy.
