Important Case Affecting:
•Taber Miners Just
Announced
OTTAWA, July 21—The Department
of Labor today received the report of
the Board of Conciliation in the strike
of the miners of tho Canada West Coal
Company at Taber, Alta. - - . ' v
.. The-question at stake was mainly
that of wages and contract prices'for
coal whether the screened or the unscreened should be paid for, and whether 2240 or 2000 pounds to the, tori
should be the basis of calculation.
Tho men demanded the unscreened
basis .of '22-10. The board finds that
the screening appliances at the mine
are not of the best and until new methods in that' regard are introduced
there as is promised,-pay on the basis
bf 2240 pounds unscreened shall obtain.
The old contract ■ prices remain in
force.-        -• ... '     '

be up to the top notch and i'n many instances they have been compelled to-

With Disastrous

Results
* GALVESTON, July 21--Ten lives
were lost so far as is known In a hurricane which swept over the Gulf of
Mexico -, and struck Galveston today
and then continued inland. While the
#
city of Galveston was held safe against
the fury of the storm by the two million dollar sea wall seven miles in tho
gulf on Tarpon Fishing pier where the
storm whipped over the jetty into the
bay, I en persons weie washed from
the rocky promontory and into tho
gulf. ,   '      ' '
Boats are out tonight searching the
bay for bodies but so far they have not
been successful.
At times the wind registered 68
miles an hour and it'is believed that
only,the sea.wall saved the city from

THE WORKING CLASS MUST RELY
ON ITSELF
in* Chicago ' Dally
H.   Y.   Calhoun
Socialist:
As tho "good" mail aeos the evil
that is rampant on ovory hand he ex-
■perlonces.a degree of sadness'and dls
couragemenl according to the, sons!*
tlvenoss of.hls conacleitco.
If he Is a "man of prayer." he Invokes divine help and blessing for every agency of good In the struggle
■against evil and prays that contusion
may overtake the workers of Iniquity,
and the powers of evil may come to
naught.
But each day ho sees" that just the
opposite is coming to pass. Not one
of the evils that he has heard of or
knows anything about is.being lessened,' but all are on the increase The
Bteady increase in divorces appalls
him.
■    The   increase in the percentage   of
. murders as woll as in crimes of   all
kinds; the increase of suicides and insanity; the increase of,prostitution, of
'   wife   desertion—in fact,   if there is a
single recognized evil, of socitey that
is   being satisfactorily dealt with, it
would in some, measure at least recon-
clle us to the present system and 'give
lis a ray of optimistic hope" that   in
some far distant future a society might
!be evolved in-which tho majority, al
' least, would find life worth living.
x Politics, or the "science of government,' has grown to be one of   the
greatest of all evils which tho conscientious man can only, contemplate
with a feeling of despair,   and   as' a
great game "of duplicity it grows even
more complex and more corrupt.
Religion; from which so many looked and hoped for social a.s well as individual redemption, is now acknowledged by even its most ardent au\ .**-
- catcs   to be deteriorating and- drifting
—na~wliy—fr6itf-th"e~Boiid"'iiioorings-whiv*:l)1
, Only the working class, who have
nothing to lose but their, chains and a
world to gain, can ue expected to be
interested In the real regeneration of
society.,Instead of looking to a "better class", who are supposed to be ln:
terested in this regeneration we should
realize that this same ','better class'
already own the earth and everything
on It, which gives them full power to
work their will. *
They control papers, schools, the
churches—every avenue of influence
o> learning by which tho minds of flu-
people can he led' and their actions—
and votes controlled. And as a result
we have present society!
Even such horrible exposures as
have been lately made by the Dally
Socialist do not arouse the better class
to,action,'or even enlist an apathetic
sympathy.
These evils fall upon the victims, the
working class, not upon themselves.
' These evils fall upon the victims, the
working class, not upon themselves.
When a child of oiie of their class was
kidnapped and held for ransom they
clamored at once to have this crime
placed in the same category as murder in the first degree and. they bid
fair to succeed in most every state—
but evil unspeakably worse' falling
upon members of-- the working' class
who have first been crowded down into the underworld, does not concern
them, for-they themselves are safe..
They are like the godly man of whom
the Psalmist says:-"Thou shalt not be
afraid of the pestilence that walketh
in darkness, nor for the destruction
that-wasteth at noonday. A thousand
shall fall at thy side, and'ten thousand
at thy right hand; but it shall not
come nigh thee."
So we need not*hope to arouse'the
"better class' to improve conditions
Ownership confers all power upon
them. They can have any .kind of society they want and they have it.
Look into their comfortable and lux
TTfious-ho"m"e"srprovided~aiid"rmaintain-
But go to Belgium and you will see
millions of dollars of property owned
by the working class. Factories, dairies, mills, mines, slores and endless
other profit making industries owned
by the people. *■ i
A few big capable men were leaders
in building up this great commercial
property. They have no wealth of their
own. They have asked nothing for
themselves. They have served in a
spirit of true democracy the common
weal.
' In England next to the largest single property is owned by the workers
They have achieved their work as a
class and In the spirit of democracy
thoy endeavor to overthrow, capitalism
by their co-operative labor.
In every parliament of Europe there
sit scores of able, estimable men. They
are the paid employes of a magnificent
democratic movement .They voice the
aims, demands and aspirations of that
movement. They seek nothing for
themselves. -   ' .
They are great not by riches or by
power or by egotism; they are great
by virtue of their cause and of their
service to that cause.
" America is still in 'the hero-making
stage. Even"the working.class has not
freed itself from the Booker Washington philosophy. It is nearer the philosophy of apes than the^philosophy of
big, broad minded .men who have all
thought deeply and striven forcefully
to emancipate mankind.,
As soon-as Americans found a college, a* public lyceum, a trade union, a
political party, they leave its control
and management ■ to a som machine
gang which sooner or later takes it out
of the hands of its' owners and uses
it' for the aggrandizement ,of the
•gang.     __    „    ,   '   ' "     .   7       - .
The movement- in- Cleveland is a
Tom Johnson movement;'-the,,'movement in New.Yo'rk a Henry George'or
Hearst movement. * •
The whites, like the .blacks, are
crying"like a lot- of nursing' infants
for   freedom,'  for liberty . for democ-
wore supposed to be the only safe in-
chorage of society.
Poverty, the root from which mo-it
evils spring, is at last compelling recognition, which In itself brings despair
since no cure, is-conceivable In proa-
ent society.
Some one may point lo benevolence
or. charity as an ovldonce that the
"world Is growing better," .and in
truth no one can point to anything
else; but would a decent burial bo
any evidence that the ravages of a
plague,wero being overcome?
"The growing necessity for these
doubtful virtues shows tho failure of
tho presont system Tho growing re*
Hponse to this need is simply a tacit
acknowledgement-, of tho failure.
All of Ibis being truo, why then is
ll that wo should give expression to

valont Idea that thoro Is, n cause for

As a mattor ot rncl thoro aro few

aro on the aldo of good are oflontlmuH
directly or Indirectly Hiding civil.

found -o he drawing bin Income from
lliu   blood money of explellatlon,
ed by,society as it is.     ,Is' It*   any
wonder they are so slow to attack the
evils "of that society?
These evils must be borne by oth-.
ers "and not by ourselves, and are often found even attractive In relieving
the ennui arising from a surfeit-.of respectable luxury and all furnished by
the working class.   |
Note the difference, in the attitude
of the Dally Socialist and all the organs of capitalism during the exposures und the GIngles trial.
If wo ever, have better conditions the
working class must throw away thoir
"bettor class' now'spapers and Ideas
nnd come to a realizing sense that
there will really never bo a "better

"growing menace of Socialism,"', you
will have to bestir that'childish brain
of",yours. Although, by constant re-,
petition of your editorial puerilities,
you may have convinced yourself that
you have nothing to fear from the
growing class consciousness of the
proletariat— you' convince yourself
alone. a  . .  ,?
You are like, tbe ostrich that, in
time of fear, drives its head into the
sand, and thinks by so doing it will
escape harm. .
Pull your head out of the sand.
Listen to the tramp of the army. It
Is thirty million strong. This army
consists of the united workers of thc
world.'* ■ -
They liave anlhilated race hatred.
They realize the identity of their In-
tere*!?s, and their .object is to abolish
the now useless function of the class
you serve. Later they will absorb
into themselves the class itself, and
in that day there' shall be no more iale
rich. Every man shall justify his ex
istence by labor or starve.
Your job. will be gone. You are
striving to combat the mighty forces
of evolution, and you are on the losing side.' Pull your head out of the
sand. It "is your only chance.'
The defenders of the present capitalistic regime affirm that the present system is fully able to supply all
the legitimate needs of the workers,
and that'the'cause of the poverty and
degredation of the proletariat is its
immorality and self indulgence—that
if the. workers did not spend so much
in drink and'amusement their present
share of. the wealth produced would
be sufficient to keep them in comfort
and provide for "old age,. in' short,
industry and abstinence would abolish
poverty.
';' In refutation 7'of this assertion -I
submit that were "every workers a total'abstainer, were every worker to
practise these principles-of frugality,
and industry, the sum.of the world's
poverty would riot be lessened hi any
"appreeiable"degree-: ■—*—*—-^	
The numberpfjobs is not affected
by the condition"'of the applicants foi*
tliose jobs. The margin of "unemployment is determlneilnot by the sobriety
or intemperance .of the workers, 'but
by entirely impersonal economic laws.
Ruskln says "The art' of getting rich
is the art of establishing a maximum
inequality ln our own favor."
Thus, If we regard wealth as power,
over mon, my possession of a million
dollars avails me nought if my fellow
men each have a million dollars.". I
can,command no more servlco than my
neighbor. ',
Monoy Is power over mon. Any
accumulation of wealth by the working
class diminishes the relative preponderance of capitalist wealth, i.e. decreases the power of ono class to command the services of ^another class.
The capitalist Ih not sincoro whon
ho ndvlsoB Iho worker lo become frugal and tompei',iito, Any amelioration
of Ihe'worklng'class misery Is dlrocl
Iy opposed to his Interests. With a

brains. '    _*,'* .
^ The opposite Is true of the capitalist—and that's why he's a capitalist.
To the capitalist his hands are useful,
of course. They are useful, for Instance ,■ *,yhen eating "or dressing. But
brains are his implements.' '
If the average worker lost his'hands
he'd starve or,land in the poor house.
The brainy man, "if struck with this
misfortune, would simply devise ways
to overcome the difficulty. and con
tinue enjoying'life with the aid of a
servant1. *•    . .,
Thinking depends on 'will, power.
When spurred by hunger, men will
work,',but will 'not tlilnk. ' They can
see the result of using their hands—
the thing they make Is before them.
Brain power is thus different from
hand power, so the workers' stomach
has forced them to use. their hands,
while they depend on others to furnish
the brains. ,
And most gladly to "others" yolun;

platforms,, preach contentment, „warn
us against unionism, pass-flaws, and
dictate our morals, * our customs,.-,and
our rules of life, which, on close exam*
ioriation are found tb dovetail into the
grand and elaborate.scheme of keeping
workers In subjection and cleverly de
nylng them any voice in these matters.
And the "hands" wonder why they
aro forced to drudge and toil, never
dreaming of the aristocracy of brains,,
in which they themselves'could be
numbered, If they connected the machinery In their top piece with the main
shaft of books, literature and their labor press.  •■*-■'
And the rldiculoi'is part of tho thing
is our abuse of men smart enough to
trick and jolly, us to leave well enough
(for them) alone,, as wo forgot that
wc—lho ' majority—have, voluntarily
surrendered tho thinking jobs ,to the

Verse 17—Notwithstanding that we
all, necessarily, have traded and callings to pursue, should, or should not,
our chief concern be the tremendous
itsuec Involved in *piritual truth, and
why? (This question must be
wered in writing by members of the
club )
Verses 18-21—The Epicureans and
the Staoics had a contrary philosophy
of life, state briefly what they each
taught
Which brings the more lasting hap
pluess, and develops thp nobler cbai-
acter, a life devoted to the pleasures
of aense, or a life devoted to service
for others and to self denial?
What, aa a matter of fact, is the sub
stance of what Paul taught'
Should we lend a respectful ear to
all new theories of life, and eternity,
or reject them without examination'
Verse 22 —Which is thf tetter
man, an active sceptic, or an indiffer
ent and thoughtless Christian?
Which, ia .preferable to be «ver speculating about God, or to ha\e no con
cern for him'
Is a belief in and a longing fof God
peculiar  to  Christianity''
May a heathen who has never
Mime into touch with. Cb-cUtiaalty find
out and know the true-God?
What then Is the adantage for a
true hearted heathen coming into con
tact with Christianity?
Verse 33—Can one man who Ifnows
God, be the means of Imparting that
knowledge fo another who desires to
know him?
Verae 24—How do we know that
God made all things'
God does fill heaven and earth with,
his presence; but does he not also
dwell in temples that are made in
which to worship him'
Verse 25—While God does not .need
the support of man's hands does he
not  desire teh worship    and love -Ot
How does God give to all "life and
breath and all things?"
Will we in heaven be able to see
God, in any different way from the
way in which it Is om privilege to see
him now?
Verse 26.—What Is the evldenoa
that all races of man sprang from the

Have labor men a perfect right
to band themselves together for mu

Has capital a moral right to pro

Have business men a right to pro
tert themselves against undue competition'
Paul worked at hia trade as a tent
maker tor a living, is there any sug
geetlon In this that modern preachers
should do a similar thing?
A large proportion of the member

church have the latent ability to

When a man does hia very best in

is he entitled to as much credit as if

Did Paul blame himself for his fall

blasphemed, and ought a man of God
alwaya to take a similar stand in

The efface Bay Standard says The
sensational report published in the or
gan of the Coal Company last night
missed fire, and thr- Fair minded pub
lie have at last been advised as to the
depths some people will go In order
try and gain their miserable ends
The citinens of Glace Bay ore not
simple minded ai the Gazette Im
agines, and Instead of hurting1 the
cause ot the United Mine Workers
the story of an attempt to blow up
the mine at Bridgeport has proved
boomerang Hardly any person
llces the story Thu general view of
the matter IS that the -ft hole thing
a hoax or that It originated In the fertile brain of some pumon 01 persons
who are doing their best to influence
public opinion against tiie striking
miners
To show that thi storj has been
published with an ulterior motive in
l lew. It Is only necessary to state
that the finding of ihe can ol powder
occurred about 8 30 on Thursday mor
ning Several peopli knew of Its discovery at 8 o'clock Thuisday evening
Nothing Was published Last night aa
soon as reports were in circulation to
the effect that the militia would likely
leave here in the ecu so of a tew day;
It was evidently thought necessary by
the Interested -parties to create a. nt
scare Then out conies the story
hours aftei the alleged "bomb" had
been found
There is some truth In the stoij
A can of powder was found But the
squib or fuse was not lit This waa ad
mltted so we are informed by the mine
manager at Bridgeport It
discovered 404 feet from the bottom
of the pit but 75 feel It was found
jast outside tbe pick house standing
in some water Had the fuse been lit
and the powder exploded—which
almost an impossibility owing to
dampness- no serious damage could
have resulted from the firing of that
amount of powder (12 pounds) in the
open roadwav
The verj worst that could have oc
cuned would have heen to destroy a
portion of the property about the pick
house Nor could the explosion of
the powder have caused an explosion
in tbe- pit for two good reaons First,
there is no gas In Bridgeport pit, and
secondly, should there be any gas it
would be bound to be on a iower level
aud therefore eould not be ignited So
mueh for that part of the sensation
Again there were not 300 men In
the pit as stated by the newspaper
publishing the atari One of tne high
est officials of the Coal Company says
that there v,ere only HO men working
at Bridgeport on Wednesday That of
flcial Is wrong There were only 113
men working on that day
This same official says tbat bo docs
it believe that the powder was plac
ed In position by anyone connected
with the U   SI   W
He thinks it was either a hoax
that It might ha*, e been placed there
of tbe workmen of the Coal
Company
Inasmuch as a United Mine Worker
innot get within pistol shot of   t
fence  surrounding the colliery, it
certainly a joke ta Insinuate that
belonging to that society could
have got down into the pit and commit
ted the deed.
The -Mine Workers desene hettel
treatment than that a story like tbat
put into circulation should be against
them, and It is particularly bad taste
that a newspaper with the reputation
of tbe Coal Co organ should be guil
ty of such contemptible tactics.
To those of use who live at Glace
Bay a story like the one alluded to
obvious fraud but this story
read by the outside public, who
unable to glean facts except through
the press, would appear as the truth
On that account the attempt to preju
dice the cause of the Mine Workers by
such fabrications is a violation of the
rules sacred even In pagan warfare—
it is poisoning the aprfnga "

Cranbrook Herald: The city of Fernie will celebrate her first anniversary after the great fire by a
banquet. . The, Feme Brewing Company, will open
their new brewery to the public.^and serve refreshment's and give the'-: visitors - a .*. gen eral. good time.
The people of Fernie have done'well the past year
They have shown of what-stuff they were made,
and they will receive the congratulations and good
wishes of everybody in the district for their bravery
which they displayed after the terrible disaster that-
befell them. Good for Fernie. - The people of
that town are made of the right kind-'of "metal..
May they prosper in the future to such an extent
as to make up' for the misfortunes of the past.
LABEI_>
Now that the men in all the camps are working
we feel that things generally will run along more
smoothly. The very unsettled state of-finttucc'ali
through, the district ever since the inauguration of
the strike some three months ago seemed as if it
was going to lie tilings up i'or an indefinite period,
However, the sun "has burst through the dark clouds
and prosperity seems to be sla'ring as in the face.
Of course il will lake months to recover the losses
made by the break in the wheels of industry, but
\a willing hand and'a stpiit heart will doubtless ov.
ercome all the discouraging features of poverty
.and convert thein into plenty in the' near future
'We hope for the best. -   *
Our cotem is snowing much wisdom" this week
'•  in regard to the 24 hour power scheme. ,The city
can do nothing better than to get the twenty-fom
',  hour system working, and soon at that.    Several
industries would start here at once if they   could
get the necessary power.     Gasolene is very expen
a siv'cand is a prohibitive power.     The city .should
be able'to supply'power for from $20 tp $25   per
horse power per year. ,, Let them do it.
The city has been going to start grading the
'   Recreation hill .for some time. '   Aid.  Gates has
, promised to get at it, biit time is rapidly drifting by
and the loads th-Sl.are hauFcd up the hill daily do
{** ' ' '
not get any lighter.     lt is up to the council   to
see'tlmt the Board of Works gets busy.. s

while here thought we had done wonders in the

that even one pupil passed the exams under these
conditions. Next term we will have our own

Many papers are devoting a great deal of spac.
discussing;the new tariff of the United State's. A
number are even busy trying to locate advantages
to working people, which it is claimed, will accrue
in the way of cheaper living and lower prices-- for
food. For the most part, tariffs are'not for the
working man. His advancement or otherwise, is
not seriously considered in'the frame up of a,new
tariff. If a high tariff prevail, living is high,
and if a low or moderate tariff be put on, figures
show that living is still high. Tariffs aro for the
manufacturers, and they also come handy for poli
ticians to juggle with.

'NOTICE
-'O
1 The crop outlook of our sister provinces to the
east is most promising. On the outcome of their
crops the prosperity of the whole of Eastern Canada depends to a greater or lesser degree. Bum-,
per crops mean large orders for agricultural machinery and implements, and ready money to pay for
same, which tends'to keep the,tall .smoke stacks oi
the east busy. Tn this .province, however, we ar-i
fortunately not dependent entirely on crops,, for
we look to our mines and natural resources, , all ot
which are much more stable than to be dependent
on one industry or calling alone. .Here's to^a big
pressed down, running over, and marketable crop
for the prairie section. - . *
The removal of temporary stores out of the fire
district to residential.sections does not add. to \ the
value of surrounding property nor to the beauty of
the streets affected. Of couVse, there is no way
in which this can" be stopped,-and the man'living
next a vacant lot may wake up any morning
and find himself a neighbor to anything from the
little sugar and tea corner grocery,to a department
. <*■ -'     /'" ■
store.  . •
The visits of the leading executive officers of
the Crow's Nest Pass Coal Co: to the workings in
this district, and the thorough examination which
seems-to be,taking place, makes,it clear that .work
is going to be pushed.ahead, and-that production
will' increase.,;', All of which means a big pay roll
and more ready money.        ■ \
The police of our city have been very busy late-
y. .i-'hI have bagged several hoboes,-\v*i> lia-.e drifted in, thinking oiir fair city a Mecca for"them to
ply their trade in.      They have a different idea
now, however.
On account of the immature business experience
of a couple of members who belong to the Board
of Trade, we understand that the Press,of the citj
is to be ignored as far as invitations to the banquet
on August 2nd is concerned?    Is tlr.s wise?

fourth'goal. Half ,,'time arrived" with
Coleman leading by a score of four
goals to two.' . ,      ■
On'resuming Coleman soon had a fifth
goal through Hutson slipping after saving a nice shot, and Graham put the
ball through. Hosmer got going and
Balderstone,^ after beating three men.
slipped 'the 'ball, to M,oyes, Who sped
down'the field, bea^ting man after man
and finished,. with scoring ■ the best'
goal  of.the game.
• From the kick off Hosmer pressed
again and Steel scored from a well timed pass from Gordon. Watson got bis
knee wrenched at this point, but he was
determined to finish the game,-Moyes
and he changed places; the game was
now fast and furious, each side trying
their level best to" score. .From a foul
Inside the penalty area Hector McDonald scored the equalising goal and ln
consequence got his hand'nearly shook
off his body by the' rest of the team1.
However we were not finished yet, ns
from a beautiful.run and.shot Watson
scored a sixth goal, but Johnson wns
cute enough to pull the ball, back after It was over a foot paat tho goal line,
and Referee McLean, who was not In
position to know, disallowed the goal.
This was hard lines indeed for Hosmer,
as tt was a better -goal than any made
by Coleman and was perfectly legitimate. This was'bad enough, butcwben
the Colemnn forwards broke away and
their outside left scored, a winning goal
our chance, was gono as tho ' whistle
blew for the finish of the game as soon
as tbe ball was kicked off from the
centre with the score" etljl 6 to 5 In favor of Coleman.
• We have no cause to feel disgraced In
being defeated by Coleman, but to lose
on the last mi nil to afier playing such'
an uphill fight, was1 the hardest'of hard
luck. As we agreed to let Jim McLean referee,the game ,we don't want to
kick, but surely he should -have given
us what was coming tu ,us. Wo bad
two goals 'disallowed,, mio of them being as good and as clean a goal as
was ever scored, and- ihe other -was a
very doughtful offside decision. Our
players all did w".->M. bu: "of th.' forwards McDonald and Moyes combined
better than the right wing, Moyes especially playing a brilliant game with
McDonald, Steel, Tliom.ioii, Balrterstone
and Watson close behind.

. PINCHER CREEK, July 17—tjonsid-j his imbibitions and-which had event-
erable excitement, mingled'with horror! ually resulted in his death either that
and regret, prevailed in this town to- night or on the following morning,
day over the unfortunate snuffing out-* * The unfortunate' . man. was driving
of a man's• life' while in a state* cifja team of small mules', attached to a
inebriation. The facts are said to bo
as follows': y • *- .
Constable Dodge, of the It. N.'W.
M, Police was. summoned at an early
hour this morning to the scene of ii
fatal, accident, across the creek, immediately west of the town. It appears
light democrat \vagbn,- at the time of
the accident, , and had been in the
employ of a' farmer eight miles'south
east of town,-also a Frenchman. .
Marks on the face and body of'deceased  would indicate that he    had
fallen off the conveyance, presumably
that some parties who had made somo! at the ugly hope alluded to, and'that
was  intensely   interesting    and   Conl| Ulis niattev taken up.
Creek had a ,hard run for the points,
Bellevue-playing a good game.'''. Coal
Creek was somewhat wide*,  strengd.
three of their usual side, being off.
Bellevue on the other lm.ul had Oakley and Guest from'Mich,'1 ^nd Adlun?
of Frank in their team. Coal Creek
opened strongly and scored in thc
first five minutes of the game, P.- Joi-
son being the' marksman. , Varley
equalized for Bellevue about midway
through the first half. Play was even
for a time. Manning added a second
goal for Coal Creek before the interval and the teams enssed over with
-Coal Creek leading by two goals to
one.       .■   ■ l    - '
i that some effort should be made to recompense a player who gives his, services and sacrifices his time in an endeavor to".give followers of the game a
little pleasure and who has had the
misfortune to meet with an accident
while so doing. ' We understand a
game has been arranged between. Fernie and.Coal Creek ancl we*trust that
the *jame wilLbe heartily supported.'
• The game continued to be' hotly con"
tested in the. second half, P.elleyue
having a large share of the play.
Strong play by Manning enabled him
to break through and Bcore a third
goal for Coal Creek. Shortly afterward O. Joison added'a fourth- from
a simple, looking shot. He caught
the ball on the drop and tipped it towards thc goal. The bright sun ln
the goal tender's eyes prevented him
seeing the bnll and It dropped over his
head and went through. '
It looked all over with Bellevue now
but they came away .strongly and added a second goal,to their total. Manning, who was playing a strong bustling game for Coal Creek scored again
with what wns really tho best shot of
the gamo, but thc reforeoullHiillowel

The Scouts entertained, Bruce's Specials to a little game of "Going, going
gone" on Wednesday evening at' base-
_ball_pa_rk.  As we "heard one fan' re
mark the game put up by' Bruce's^pets
"was so.rotten it was good."'. The
score of 22'to'-6 tells the tale. And
Bruce had nerve enough to get In the
box and try to pitch 2 innings himself.
Mis alarm clock wind up caused, much
laughter and gave the Scouts a • little
amusement. Not one of the carpenters got past first and not a ball was
hit out of the diamond. Bruce seems
to be a hoodo to the game and should
quit and let someone else get up , a
team that ca nat least give tho spectators a littlo for their money, McDonald pitched good ball for the Scouts
and Con Whelan surprised the fans
by not doing any, kicking. Tho pitcher
for the carpenters did good work,* but
his support was fierce; tho first baseman and tho new man on second bolng
about the only.' onofi who played tho
i;nnie. The lino up and score follow:

THE IDEA!
■*• • "CSS-
early start oh' a Sunday fishing ■ or
picnic trip found the body of a niaii
lying dead, at a, bad hole near the
creek. The constable named, while
making' all possible haste, to -tho .location indicated met the coroner, J.
Gould nnd Dr. -Turcot returning from
the, scene of-the accident with the
dead body of the Ill-fated, man, which
whs placed lh the undertaking department of the Scott establishment.   '
The body proved to be that of Jo's.
Deignault, familiarly known in town
as "French ,Toe,"\vhose age is given as
between 45 and'50 years. On Friday
night the'deceased had been placed'Iri
the lock up-here while* in-a state or
intoxication, and it is supposed that
after .being fined the following morn-,
ing at the police court he. had resumed
the wheels had passed over his breast
The team of mules was found near the
spot where the,body was discovered
Of course these are merely Indications
and supposition as to how Joseph Deignault met with death, and lt is*unlikely that the true cause will ever, be
known regarding more - Identical circumstances connected, with the sad affair. -     ,-'..
Although the deceased had been, in
this■ section, for eight or nine years,
he does not appear to be very weil
known • among .other Frenchmen in
town.
' A coroner's Inquest was not deemed
necessary, as the affair is unanimously
looked upon ,by all as a case of accidental death. No relaties of the deai\
man are known.      '  * '' 7"

prince, It was not eager, to tight him.
A certain'reaction in his favor set in.
If they did not love him, they held him
In -sincere respect. If he meant to light,
then they were not sure tbat they did!
Baroness Dobrava'a name, too, was
much on men's, lips. , Stories, about Sophy weij bandied to and fro. 'People
began to remember that they had from
the beginning thought ber very remarkable—a force to be reckoned with." The'
superstitious Ideas about her made
their first definite appearance now. She
had bewitched the prince, they said.'
and the men of the hills too. The
whole mountain country would rise at
her bidding and sweep down on Slav*
na in rude warfare and mad bravery.'
The sheepskins would come, following
the red star! ,.' „
Tbe citizens of Slavna did not relish
the prospect . At the best lt would be
very bad for trade. At the worst it
would mean blood and death let loose
in tbe streets. A stern ruler was*better- than civil war. The troops of the
garrison were no longer such favorites
as they bad been.' Even Captain Hercules subdued'his demeanor, which Indeed,- had never quite' recovered from

■ to 0 self effacing'discretion. He, too.
in his heart and in his heavy, primitive brain had an uneasy feeling about
the witch with the red star. Had she
not been the beginning of trouble?
But for, her Sterkoff's long knife would
hove set an end to the whole chapter

°The time was short and the omens
doubtful. It was thc moment for, a
bold stroke, for a forcing game. The
wnverers,must.be shown where power
lay. whose was the winning, side.
Captain Markart arrived at Slavna at
1 'o'clock. Zerkovitch had used ' his
start well and reached the city nearly
three' hours earlier. When Markart told
Stenovics—he reported himself at once,
to the general—how be hnd been outwitted Stenovics smiled, saying: "I. know,
and I know what he has done since he
got here.' They stole a* march on you,
but not on me. captain.* And now—your
story!" He listened to Markart's tale
with a frowning brow'and then dismissed him..saying: ''You will meet me
at tbe palace/' We meet the, king in
conference at 4 o'clock." But the general himself -went to the* palace .long
before 4. and he and Stnfuitz were,
closeted. with. Countess
Ellenburg." Lepage, returning frojn;a jvalk tp^

arrive—aye, and had
seen* him set out and
'marked all his goings,
but of this.Lepage was
unconscious. The little
lieutenant was not much
of a soldier, but be waa
an excellent. spy. ' Lepage bad been with Zerkovitch.
The king wns confined to his apartments, n suit of sis' rooms on the first
floor, facing the river. .Hero he had his
own sitting room, dressing and bedrooms. Besides these there were the
little cupboard Lepage slept-in and a

was occupied' by odds and ends, Including the.tackle, rods and other Implements of his majesty's favorite paB-
time. The council was bold In tho sitting room. Natcheff arid Lcpago wero
not present, but each was In his own
room, ready for any possible call on his
services. Marl-art wns there, flrst to
tell his story nnd deliver his letter, second In his capacity us secretary to General Stenovics, Tho countess and Staf*
nlt-z completed the party.
Tbo king was anxious, worried, ob-
vloimly unwell, nis volco trembled as
he road aloud his rod's letter. It was
brier, but dutiful nnd oven affectionate,
After n slight reproach that bo should
have beon kept In Igrioranco of tbo np*
prehensions entertained nbout thc
king's health tho prlnco'requested an
audience within thc noxt two days, Ilo
hnd connlderntlons which It wns hlu
duty to lay before his mnjesty, nud he
firmly but respectfully claimed tho
right of conOdontlnl communication'
with his fathor. Tbat wns essential to
liln mnjoaty's obtaining n true appreciation of his views. Tbe hit at Stonovles wna plain enough, and tho
prince did not labor It, The latter ended there, with nn expression of earnont
concern for tho king'* honlth, There
-was no word In It about stnrtlng on hli
Journoy.
. Thon Markart told his story-not tlmt
he hni] much to toll. In chnimico Iii
added only tliut tin* prlnco proponed (0

On this point Btcnovlca selu-d, pur-

words were true enough, though not lathe aenae In which the king was -meant

Tbe first round of the fight iwas going against the coterie.'   They"*dld nota
want the. king to see his son:. Danger
lay there. The prince's was the stronger character.    It might well ..prevail,
and they ,were no longer'. certain that
the prince knew or guessed nothing of
their hopes and intentions.: How much
news had Zerkovitch carried to Praslok the night-beforeV;, Stenovics addressed the king again.'
• --Captain Markart gathered that the,
prince was'reluctant to Interrupt the
military.'training on which he is engaged af. .Volsenl, sir."   "
.* "A ye*ry excellent thing, that, but the
other matter is more urgent. I shouldn't
change my mind on account of that"
.. "A personal Interview might be trying to your majesty."
The king looked annoyed,. possibly a
little suspicious; "You've no other objection than that to urge. General Stenovics*?" ••',■'.'
- Stenovics ^ had none other which be
could produce. "No, sir," he said.
„ ""While I'm here I must do my -fluty,
and. I shall induce my son to do his.
I'll,receive the Prince of Slnvna^n private audience tomorrow or next day.
I'll,fix the precise time'later, and I'll
■write the jetter myself."
Thedecislon was final, and.it was defeat so far. There was a moment's silence. Markart saw Colonel' Stafnltz
nod his head almost imperceptibly toward Countess Ellenburg. The need
and. the moment'for re-enforcements
had come. The' colonel was calling
them up. The order of battle had been
well considered In Countess Ellenburg's
apartments The second, line, came
Into action The countess began with
a'question, put with a sneer:
"Did no'other reason for the prince's
unwillingness to set out on his journey
suggest Itself to Captain Markartfrom
what he saw at Praslok?"
The king turned  sharply   round to
her, then to Markart   "Weil?" he asked tbe latter. ■ ,.    '
.   Markart was sadly embarrassed.
;  "Who  was''at."Praslok?" asked tho
countess.
"Mine. Zerkovitch, and her husband
for one night, and Baroness .Dobrava."
- "Yes, Baroness Dobrava!"
"She's still" there?" asked the kinV
He looked perplexed, even vexed, but
again he smiled.    He looked at Stenovics'and Stafnltz,"'but this time he
found   no. responsive .smiles.    Their
-faces wore deadly serious.   "Oh, come,
well—well, that's not _B_eri_ons.-llNaturaL
^perhaps, but—the prince has aTsense7>f
duty.    He'll seo.that that "won't do.
And we'll send the baroness a hint-
we'll tellher how much'we miss ber at
Slavna."   He'tried'tb make them answer his smile and accept his smooth*
■ ing away of the difficulty.   It was all
a failure. * • ,     •-,"•■
"I'm bound to say, sir, that I consider
Baroness Dobrava a serious obstacle
to bis royal highness obeying your
wishes—a serious obstacle," said Stenovics.''
"Then wo must get her* away, general."
"Will ho let her go?" snapped tho
countess, -
"I must order it if lt comes to that,"
said the king. '-These little—cr—affairs
•-these—what—holiday flirtations*"-   '
Tho countess lost or appeared to lose
control of herself suddenly. "Little affairs! Holiday flirtations! If it were
only that it would bo beneath your notico. sir, and beneath mlno. It's moro
than that!"
Thc king started and leaned for-
ward,"looking nt her,' Sho roso to her
fqot, crying: "More thnn that! While
we sit talklug here ho may be marry-,
Ing thnt woninn!"
"Marrying her?" cried the king, His
fnco turned red nnd then, as tho blood
ebbed ngoln, beenmo very pnlo,  ,
"That's whnt'she monns-yes, nnd
what ho means too!"
The king was iighnst Tho second assault Htrtick honio-struclt nt his dearest hopes nnd wounded his most Intimate iimbltio-iB, but he wns still incredulous, no spread out trembling
hands, turning from tho vehement woman to his two counselors,
"Gontlcmen!" he said imploringly,
with outstretched bunds!
They woro sllent-gravo and allont
, "Cnptnin Markart, you-you oaw any*
tblug   to   suggest   thin-thin   terrible
Idea?"
The llro waa hot on poor Mnrknrt

man feel the need of it, between t£e,
countess' open' eruption and the not less
formidable calm of Stenovics and Stafnltz!- And all his favorite dreams, in
danger! .'•'   <? -   >
"She won't leave him or he'll follow
her;- Tbe woman has infatuated him!'*
the countess persisted.
."Pray, madame," let me think," said
tbe harassed and sick king. "We must
open communications with Baroness'
Dobrava."
"May I suggest'ttiat the matter might
prove urgent, sir?" said Stenovics. '* *
. "Every hour isvfull of danger." declared the countess; ,
The king held up his band for silence.
Then be took paper and pen and wrote
with his own , hand -* some lines. -'. He
signed the document and folded it
His face was now firm and calmer.
Tbe peril to his' greatestAiiopes—perhaps a sense of theprecoVous tenure
of bis power—seemed to Impart to blm
a new promptness, a decision alien to
his normal character. "Colonel Stuf
nltz!" he said in a tone of command •
The colonel, rose to bis feet and saluted. From an adviser in.council be
became in a moment a soldier on duty
"1 am about to intrust to you a duty
of grent delicacy. I choose you' because, short of General Stenovics him-
self, there is no man In whom 1 bnve
such confidence. * .Tomorrow morning
you will go to Praslok and inform his
royal highness that you have* a communication from nie for Baroness Dobrava. If the prince is absent you will
see the baroness herself. If she Is absent you will follow her and find her.
The matter Is urgent.' You will tell her
tbat it Is-my request that she at otice
accompany you back hereto the paInce,
where 1 shall receive.her and acquaint
her with my further wishes. If she
asks of these say that you are not empowered to tell her anything. • She
must learn them from myself. If she
makes any demur about accompanying
you immediately or, If-demur is made
or delay suggested froiii any quarter
you will say that my-request is a command. If that Is not sufficient you will
producbcthls paper. It is an order under my hand addressed to you and'directing you to arrest Rnniiwss Do
brava and escort her'ben* tu my pi-i'S-
ence, notwithstanding any objection or
resistance'which any person whatever
will offer at his peril.. You will be
back here by tomorrow evening, 'with
the baroness Iri.'your charge. Do.it
without employing the order for arrest
if possible, but do It anyhow anil nt all
costs. Do you understand?"
. "Perfectly, sir. Ami to take an escort?"^   ■ ;  *„" „ • "' '
The answer to that question was anxiously considered—and. awaited anx
iously. ,               .      _,. '
: '*-Yes,"., said the king, "you will. ^Tho
precise force I leave to your discretion
it should be large enough to make you
secure from hindrance by.any act short
of open and armed resistance to* my
■commandor"-——i—'-^y- >-7  -. ■ ■
\ Stafnltz saluted again and at a sign
from the king resumed^ his seat. The
king's manner relaxed as he turned to
Stenovics. "When we'w got her here
we'll reason with her—she'll hear reason—and persuade her that her health
will benefit by a fojreign trip. If necessary I shall cause her to be deported.
She must be but of Kravonia in three
days unless she can clear herself from
all suspicion. : I'll arrange that the
prince shan't come for his audience until she is well out of Slavna. It is. of
course, nhsoluteiy essential that no
word of this should pass tbe walls of
this room.. If once a bint of It reached
Praslok tbe task of laying our hands
on thc baroness might become infinitely more difficult." /,
The three were well pleased. Tbey
had come to fair Sophy,, nnd on thnt
score nlonc would be right glad to see
tho last of her. And when the hnd
gone there wns,u fairer chance that
the prince, too, would go on his travels..
Whether ho went nfter lior or not they
cared little so that he wont and the recruiting nnd training'at Volsenl were
Interrupted. .

ROBBERS
Hold Citizens at Point of
Gun While Pals Blow
Up the Safe
ASHLAND. N.H. July 16—One masked robber, held three families at bay
for more than a quarter of an hom
early today, while two robbers, also
masked, worked in the glare of an electric light and finally succeeded in opening the safe of the Ashlaind savings
bank, escaping.with $500 In cash. It
was necessary'to use three explosions
to force the safe and the robbers re
malned at work more than 15 minutes
after their operations had been discovered. The burglars were discovered
by Mrs. Arthur Peaslee, who with her
husband lives in a house adjoining tho
bank. Awakened by, loud reports;
and looking out of the window she saw.
masked men running towards the safo
in' the office of the bank cashier. She
called to her husband who opened the
window and shouted to' the men to
get away from the bank. The muzzle
of a revolver was promptly thrust in
Peaslees face by the burglar on guard
and he was ordeerd to keep quiet.    '■
Mrs. Alonzo Smith, who llvesvover
the bank, and .who had been awakened
by. the explosions also was commanded, to go back and remain .quietly'in
her room, but crazed by fear she cried
out so loudly that many persons were
awakened. '     ' ■■><,'
By this time people had connected
with the central office of the telephone
company and, were trying, to locate
the town policemen, but presently th<-*.
robbers applied more dynamite to Unsafe door and it fell open.
Then , taking a package of money,
they rushed out the back door where
they were joined by the third man
and the three started across the fields
in the direction of the railroad tracks.
Pursuit was organized quickly enough
for the town people to catch sight or'
the robbers as they took to flight, but
shortly afterwards their trail -was-
lost. .        '

Winnipeg,   July. .19—Work  of.  the

ating plans for the Canadian Int'erna-
tional exposition, tt> be held in this city
ln 1912,'.Isrproceejling wlfh'all'possible
despatch.',.*' -   ■-  *' *""' " ,
Following up the canvas made of
Western . Canada in - the, spring, the
commlttoe is how engaged In placing
tho project before the Eastern Canadian public through the medium of a
canvass ;of that part of the Dominion
made by Secretary Charlos F. Roland
of the exposition committee. Mr. Roi*
and has been In tho east several weeks
part of tho time accompanied by the
members of tho committee, who went
to Ottawa to prosont tho Exposition
memorial to Sir Wilfrid Laurier, and
ho has also had the assistance of Geo.
Ham, the well known newspaper mini.
From tho canvasH of Kaslern Canada, Socrotary Roland roturim most
encouraging roports and tho pross of
Eastern Canada'verify these reports
by atricles that, appear in, the news
and editorial columns, which are generally highly favorable to the project
of holding a Canadian Exposition.
E-xposition Will Cover Canada
In all tho work that is done, the
committee and its agents are striving
with might and main to make the Exposition cover the whole. Dominion,
and to conserve the interests of ' each
district, city or town, so that when the
last word shall have been said, not
even the most inconspicuous part of
Canada-.will have cause to complain
that its claims have been slighted or
Its interests defeated; Naturally, in
the necessary haste of a preliminary
canvass, the more prominent places
have,received a larger share of attention from *the Exposition committee
than the smaller .towns and ' settlements, but discussion which takes
place at:the committee's meetings indicates clearly and forcibly that the
whole country- is to be covered in
minute detail, and the wishes and interests of every part-will be given conscientious care. -

FAVORS REDUCED
DUTY ON RAW STUFF
Pres. Taft Favors Letting
Down the Bars on
Raw Materials .
WASHINGTON., July 17—President
Taft will win his right for free or re ;
duced rates of duty on raw materials.
Nearly every member of the confer-
once committee on the tariff bill con-.'
ceded this today. Indications are
that when the new tariff bill becomes
a' law the rates on the articles which
the president desired to come in free
will be as follows: -
Iron ore free (present rate 40 cents
per ton); oil, free (now protected by
countervailing duty); hides, 7 1-2 per
cent, ad Valorem, (present rate 15 per
cent); coal; 4.5 cents per ton, (present
rate 67 cents); lumber, probably $1.25*
on rough/ with Senate rates on'finlBh-
ed. This would be a material reduction throughout "thc lumber schedule..^
President Taft will win another, decided victory in the Philippine free
trade provision. The sub committee
which has been considering this sect-
Ion has decided to permit the free admission of 150,000,000 cigars annually
ns requested by tho president, Instead
of 70,000,000 as admitted undor a Senate amendment.

kno\\'n.
. The accident to Johnny Hovan, reported last; week w&s more serious
than at first supposed. ;His condition this week was, reported as very
bad, the broken .bone from one of the

condition was reported as being much
better. " __'"*-
Mrs'. Davis, who'is well known, in

Chief McDougall last year'met with a
very sad accident last Monday. lt

good in the northern part of Manitoba,

price of, $1.25 a bushel.
Jep Scott, the inventor of the famous spike gloves, spike shoes, etc., is a
fisher, and a good deep fisher at that.
When he throws out the line and tlio
fish refuse*to bite he dives right in after them and tries to ascertain the reason of their stubbornness. He says
that if he cannot catch "flies,' he can
sure catch the fish; But when he
landed out'of the water he was dumbfounded to discover that'the trout/he
brought up with him-was not yet' old
enough to vote and he had-to reluctantly toss him back. * Better luck
next time, Jep.
