first time to my knowledge that the

been through this district and it would
be a God send from a mine worker's

oftener^ Since he ..visited the, mines
the,Coal-„Conif>any officials have been
.very, busy rectifying the outrageous
condition under which-the mine work*

ment inspector, who is paid for this
kind of',work, viz, forcing mine operators "of Bi" C... to -comply with the
Coal Mines Regulation, act, had hot
. come around at, this "time, I believe
according, to his report that' it would
not have been long before we would
have" had another..'bad explosion like
that^which occurred at Coal Creek "a
few years ago.' ■ It:'is',to be, hoped
for the benefit' of the mine workers
that the chief inspector - for B. -0..

J, Emmerson, Paul Alo?*bnx and Otto Soronsen were very badly hurt in
No. '2 mine at Coleman oh Thursday.
The accident was caused by a bad
cave-in while the men were working
in pillars. It has been reported since
that Emerson had succumbed, "having
had his back broken by the fall of
rock, but we, are unable to confirm
.this report.

To show how the capitalist corporations are doing things at Glace, Bay
we reprint the following Items from
the Glace Bay Standard:
The Coal Company, by Its police
officers is very busy just how serving notices on their tennants.tq, vacate their homes.. A squad of "specials' visited quite a number.of people
yesterday and left a notice^, a copy of
which we print hereunder
We are.advised.by competent legal
authority that the notices, now being
served by the Coal* company are positively-not worth the' paper on which
they are written. They are interesting chiefly on account of bearing the
signature of the genial - second vice''
president ' of the Dominion Coal Co.,
'Ltd. '*■■   ** *        ,        -     ,   '
, The notices being no good then the
"occupants of the houses ■ who receive
notice to quit should stand by , their
rights under the law. • • '
"' Theoretically* the coal .company, 1?
just" as much bound to obey the law as
the ordinary coal miner,'' and in the
case of eviction the people should sec
to it that the Coal company go about
the work;of driving tenants out o°
their homes in a .legal manner. The

evening Rev., Mr, Williamson preached, what was practically his last ser

closing address he made it plain' thai
he was presenting only the samo simple truth that he liad always sough',
to place before his people. Ho referred to the growth that had taken plae",
in the church in the last few. years,
and predicted that it Would continue.
Mr. Williamson has received-the ap
pointment of general secretary of tho
British Columbia Sunday school association, his duties as such to begin on
the 1st of October. In the meantime
ho has gone east on a trip, trying to
interest Baptists ofo that part of the
Dominion in the work here, with a

church building now in course of erection. Mr.(> Willlamson-ahas received
assurances from the Northwest and

will receive every' assistance possible
to facilitate |.he placing of. his mission
before the people' of those sections.

Supper was observed,' when methods
were discussed for procuring' a nev

The agreement was signed on Saturday night. -Vice-President Stubbs, the

into negotiation's with tho company.

A number of ministers of the Gospel
realizing that Socialism is a live subject, and that it-is engaging the entire
thought and attention of the people of
ever'v nation, frequently preach upon
Socialism from the pulpit, but It is
rather pitiable to realize that these
saintly men who pretend to know so
much about God and the life beyond
the grave, know so little about the doctrines promulgated by Socialism. The
men who has studied philosophy, the
ology and wrestled with tho scriptures
to make a showing that there aro
mansions beyond the stars, seems Indifferent*' in becoming- thoroughly acquainted with a subject that materially affects this interests of the peoplo
during their presence here on this
earth.      , *   '    -
A short time ago an eloquent divine
who draws a fat salary for something
he knows nothing about, declared to
his fashionable congregation that "Socialism could never* come owing to. the
fact that you cannot change human
nature. If human nature cannot be
changed, then why is this pulpit pounder elaborating on the beauty and the
glory of an invisible world and endea

close to the standard of- perfection

off this mortal coil they will be given

If human nature cannot be changed,
why then plead with the sinner to
come to repentance?
If human nature is fixed and not
subject to change, -then- the Christian
people all along the centuries have
made a serious mistake wben they ex-
omics, not, however, the economics oi
schools and colleges. The economics
which they, are studying are the economics of Karl Marx, economics which
.have a revolutionary import, and although they merit the title of dismal
science, because of the unpleasanr
truths they contain,, nevertheless beai
a message of hope to the disinherited
of all lands.—Western Clarion,
pended countless millions of money in
building temples to God and paying
salaries to' preachers to paint pictures
of the golden shore of eternity and the
pearly gates In the hope that man
would life his eyes from the earth
and permit his vision to contemplate
the glorious life of the promised land,
if only he would be redeemed from his
sin. If human nature cannot change
why then preach temperance to the
drunkard or chastity to the fallen

The San Francisco Star a few weeks
ago, commenting on the Calhoun verdict had' tho following- to say about it
editorially:   *
'■The result of the Calhoun trial was
not a surprise. A verdict of acquittal
would have been a surprise. Considering the lack of evidence connecting
the defendant directly with the crime
charged against him, a 'Verdict of guilty would have beon a surprise. As
to general or majority belief in his
guilt, that Is another matter, ' with
which the jury had nothing to do.
"The people will learn from that
trial another part of the lesson so necessary for them to learn, that private
ownership and control of public func*
tlons do not pay from any standpoint,
and that attempts to protect the pub:
lie by prosecuting bribers of public
officials are in the main futile. Bribery of public servants is not done on
the street or In the presence of witnesses.     - ■   '
"Desirable' as it may be to punish
bribery by imprisonment, it- is very
evident that the terrors of prison life
do not stop bribery of public servants
by private monopolists To untangle
tbe tangled skein of corruption inseparably, connected with private ownership of, public utilities, there must be
public ownership of all such utilities."

Nor in the heart whose studied tears
o'er uses vain have wept—
A white syringa halts us here, where
comrades come aud go,   ,
And crowns us with such spotless-

No bared Inventions hedge about the

Upon  the   weary and  despised,  who

Unguarded of flie open night its chastity has slept

, The Star has placed Itself on record
as favoring the public ownership of
public utilities, and if collective ownership of public utilities is a step towards the liberation of the people
from the thralldom of private monopoly, then why not advocate the public
ownership of all tho means that are
collectively used by tho people to produce the necessaries of life?

bW'h'lle its tinkering with the tariff

Of course it by no means follows
that congress is serious in proposing
these measures, nor is it certain that
between th'eperverseness of the Supreme court and th dilatorlness of the
several states! they will soon come to
be voted upon as amendments to the
constitution.        <*
'' But it is gratifying to note the con'
sternation of dyed in the wool Repub
licans and Democrats, just at the time
when English old fogies are speechless
over the quite moderate budget Introduced by Lloyd George.
There is no mistaking what the Republican party is doing.- It Is swallowing at a gulp tho so called * radical
measures of populism, dead and embalmed, and of tho democracy, dead
and decaying. Tho principal reason
the grand old party hns in doing this
is to win to Itsolf tho more progressive elomenlB of the old partlos.

■ What • proportion of* present * day

Is the Holy Spirit, as spoken of in
this lesson,, generally received at pr
subsequent to conversion?
If il is now tho prlvologe of evory
Christian to roceivo the'Holy, Spirit
and to walk In Him thereafter, how
may Ho bo received?
Was the gift of tongues and prophesying then, or is It now a nocessary
accompaniment to tho baptism of tho

EVERETT, Wash'. Aug. 4—Two ai-
rests have been,made of men suspected of being guilty, of setting the fires
which wiped' out 12 business estab
lishm'ents in this city last night, entailing a, property loss estimated a-
be'tween $100,000 and $125,000,"-' and
terrorizing the" residents of the* placo
for hours. ~   '• -   , * ' '
. Five successive"1 fires of incendiary
origin occurred, the first breaking out
late in the afternoon and the last alarm being turned in about midnight-
Among the buildings destroyed was
the Snohomish County court. house
, -. At' 10 o'clock, last night, after the
conflagration, had, lasted for several
hours; the mayor requested that the
local company ot state militia,be called, and 35 armed men were sworn in
as special constables to guard property and prevent further operations
by Incendiaries'.-
Hundreds, of , citizens enlisted iu
volunteers . to assist the sixteen exhausted firemen An appeal for* assistance was'despatched to the Seattle firo department and fifteen men
were sent from that city on a special
train at, midnight to help fight the
fire. It was not until two o'clock
this morning that the flames' wero
brought under control. •
Reign of Terror
During the early part of the night
there was a reign of terror throughout
the;city. With reports of fires comin.*;
in at'frequent intervals from widel*-
scattered, localities and under circum-'
stances that left no room to doubt they
were of incendiary origin, the electric
light wires were put out of commission
and the city was plunged in darkness,
To add to the terror of the people
there was an incessant rattle* from the
discharge of, cartridges in the' Bailey
sporting goods establishment, whilo
there were frequent detonations from
the" discharge of dynamite' that, was
used to wreck buildings in the path o"
the flames and check their-progress.
No loss of human life,. is reported,
but 16. horses perished.
That the fires were the work of incendiaries here is not doubted by'anyone.1 Each of the* five fires started
in localities and under circumstances
that practically precluded accidental
origin.  * . ■" .   • ■'.   < ;, * ■.

Men with red blood; men of iron, men with brain
power; men with a vision; men who will dare to do
right though tlie heavens fall. No "boozers" need
apply. The business is too serious and" there are
too many "interests involved, both on the part, of capital and labor, to, entrust the workingman's side of
the controversy to any but clear.headed advisors.
_It 's'all'right to be. a good fellow-and it's a good
thing to be popular with the boys,-but when a man
is only that he soon loses his grip on his job and
those' whom he is. supposed to represent soon lose
theirs. When- booze .interferes with "such a lead-
er-'s business, he is very apt to sacrifice his business'; * -'■''.-      '       "'.''.
-.Preference .will, be given, to peace-makers'instead
of'strike makers. Not that a labor leader should
neyer call a strike. God pity him if he hasn't the
nerjve when the time comes to do so. The right to
protest should belong to every man. But the best
labor leader is the man who calls the fewest strikes
because he has the tact and the sense to settle the
trouble without an industrial conflict. If war is
hell, then strikes aro purgotary. '
Four fhishers and bluffers will not be considered/and the chap who has only the gift of gab will
not have a look-in. We need men who regard tho
labor leader's job as a proposition that requires the

have thc, comfort, of a clear conscience, and ho will
have thc satisfaction of knowing that some day he
will bo given full credit for sincerity of purpose.

Thc Frank Paper lias the following:
"Many Canadian newspapers   coming   to the
desk of the Frank Paper contain   editorial   talk
these days dealing with coal miners' unions,   the
inspiratiouVor which is supplied by the'report of
the conciliation board which investigated the Glace
Bay strike.     The report of the majority   of the
board advocated breaking away from the United
Mine Workers of America by Canadian miners, and
tlie editorials' in question approve of that recommendation, pointing out as much in concert as if
by pr.earrangei-n.ent, as the main reason for so doing, that the United Mine Workers is an American!
organization with no sympathies , for Canadians,
which may at any time be used by American   coal
mine operators whose coal comes into competition
with Canadian coal, to call a strike in. Canada and
close down the Canadian mines in order that   the
American mines may corral the market.
That sort of talk sounds to this paper like tlie-
utterest rubbish and nonsense. There may be
good reason for organizing a purely Canadian coal
miners organization, but' we feel perfectly assured
that is'not one of them. • Te presuppose it possible
that such a' thing could be brought, about wev must
be willing to believe that the international officers
of "the. United Mine Workers of America are all
cro'oks of the deepest dye; men whose instincts are
so corrupt that instead of being permitted to be
the leaders of a- body of working men they should
all be in the penitentiary, for how otherwise could

which indeed are'several very, good Canadians.:
. We are inclined to think that even'were it possible for the Americans to buy Tom Lewis body and
breeches and were he to attempt to put such a
strike into effect in Canada there would go up from
Pete Patterson and the other international board
members from Canada such a howl that as -\vculd

Was Buried Alive for 48
t Hburs--Died Shortly
After Rescued
must practically have lio-?.-* a caso of
being buried alive for the space of 48
hours occurred'in a portion of the
Porcupine district 15 or 16 miles from
here, to a farmer named Norman L."
Johnson. The particulars of the sad
affair as far as your correspondent,
can learn are as follows:   '
Johnson, was at work digging ari
excavation ,on his farm, with a view
to depositing and burying a huge
rock or boulder in it, 7 or 8 feet long
and about 4 feet wide. It ifj not altogether clear how the affair' happened
but at all events the sad condition of
poor Johnson demonstrated conclusively that something did happen about
tlie time he was digging the excavat*.
ion mentioned. "
- The massive and unwieldy boulder
had slid into the hole while he was at
work and'pinned him there. Not only
this but the pick he was using was
pinned with him and In such a manner
as to be embedded in the flesh of his
left leg from the instep of the foot to
the knee.   ,*
Johnson, ■ who was an .American
from New' England, is - 36 years . of
age, lived alone, and was missed ay
his neighbors and at the post office.
Accordingly those who went to call
at his place found the door open, the
bed unmade and the dishes unwashed,
an unusual < condition of things with
hirii, as he was known to be. scrupulously clean and particular about all
such-matters,,, '
Continuing in their search groans
were heard,from the direction of the
boulder which had caused all the trouble,' ' the pain and misery to the un-
forturiate owner of the premises.
■ A\,few minutes later the half entombed man, was. discovered, but although willing hands were quickly doing their utmost in the work of relief
"iintooir^sl)Wr"tim^tF^get~him— safely
out. ,;,This done he'was immediately
conveyed "to" the Memorial hospital in
this place.' . Johnson stated, strangely! enough,, that he.was not suffering a
great deal of pain.at the time" of his
rel'easo, but doubtless this was due
to the fact that blood had ceased to
circulate in the'* Injured member,
which could not bo, touched without
causing'the blood to ooze from, it:
But the saddest part of the incident'
Is that although everything was done
for the Invalid at the hospital which
medical skill could'suggest and faith*'
ful nursing accomplish, at a, late hour
on Tuesday Normim Lewis Johnson's
name was added to the long list of
those who have scalod tho dim hereafter, the end coming without any undue pain.
A wave of genuino sorrow has been
spread over tho community through
tho termination of n man ln tho prime
of life and who wnB known nmong his
Jrlonds as ono of God's noblest handiworks—a good,and honost man,

. Only' one of the two league games
on the card for last Saturday was
played, Fernie failing to make th-3
trip to Bellevue.      -,
Interest in the league is evaporating, unless we except the clubs th-u.
are immediately concerned ' in tho
race for the championship; these-aro
Michel and Coal Creek. The other
clubs are out of the running, • and
practically speaking, have no interest
in the destination,of the league cup.

-, .Bellevue last Saturday.
The difficulty ■ seems to have been
in getting a team together, several of
the players have left the town, and
thoy failed to get substitutes oto fill
the vacancies..     The only game placed last Saturday was at Hosmer, Coal
Creek supplying the opposition.  The
match proved to be rather easy for
Coal Creek and they won out by tlio
rather/large score of six to one. Hoj-
mer opened I the game with nine mon,
which seems strange considering tho
fact that they were playing at home
Goals-came early to Coal"Creek and
they had an easy passage all the \yay
through,     The game was uninteresting throughout, the only time when
a shout was heard was when Hosme?
scored  their first and only, goal.   It
would be useless to offer any criticism
on the game as Hosmer were weak in

a nervous breakdown, previously had
made an-unsuccessful attempt to kill
himself by jumping into the sea when
the Vaderland was at Dover. ,
■He sailed from New York on1 July

the voyage his strange actions were
the subject of comment by the saloon
passengers. *       •_  < ,   -
• When the Vaderland put into Dover
Brown suddenly mounted the railing
of tbe; steamer and leaped into the
sea. Passengers sounded the alarm
however, and the small boats -were
manned and Mr. Brown rescued. He
was immediately put in his cabin and
thereafter on the voyage to Antwerp
was under the care of the doctor of the
ship. ,(
• He was left alone for a moment today half an hour before the steamer
arrived at Antwerp, and seizing a knife
he slashed his throat and died soon after. The passenger list of the first
cabin gives the name of C H. Brown.

PARIS, Aug. ' 3—Judging from the
reports'received here the position'in
Barcelona still k remains somewhat
shrouded as no correspondence , has
yet reached the city, which .is isolated
by land and sea.
The censored reports coming out of
Madrid are suspected of- being ,over
optimistic.; Nevertheless it appears to
be certain that General Sandiago has
succeeded In restoring a semblance of
order in the'city and today a serious
effort to cause a resumption'of work
will bemade. ,. ...

Senators Brown and Borah, both had
letters from the' president bearing up
on the alleged joker. v\ The senator-:
read these letters to the conferee--
Tlie president asserted in the letter to
Senator Borah" that the leather and
hide schedule as'1 adopted by the con-,
ferees was just as he had understood.
He ' argued that- farmers wear shoes
made of the kind of hides that woul.i
pay the low duty and that'practically
all harness is made from dutiable leather, and therefore would be reduced
to 20 per cent ad valorem. ,
In the Brown letter.the,president
is said to have added a rather shar*)
criticism to the legislators continually
"finding jokers." Appeals were made
to both senators to support the'conference report. The contention of tha
"range" senators is that'the, president
is in error both ns to hides from
which farmers' boots are manufactured and concerning harness.
. After the westerners had'departed
the conferees , discussed/, ways , and
means of meeting the situation. It
was practically conceded that in order to ensure the passage of the ro
port by a" safe margin the low rates
on boots and shoes and harness would
have to be applied to calfskin products as well as lo leather from a class
of hides that are now dutiable .but
which'are made free by the conference
report. -       •   , *"
No program has been-reached positively as to how this result' shall b&
accomplished. ' '       '■

WASHINGTON, Aug. 4—Tariff lo
glslation has been again delayed by
the hido and leather question and as
a,,result the conferees were called together once moro yesterday. Tho westerners complained that the leather
schedule, as arranged by tho conferees
with the approval of tho president,
Is unfair to the states interested In
protected hides, It was agreed,yesterday that some action must bo taken
to conciliate thom if tho conforonco

rich and his associates wero not Ion,?
In learning that tho chargo that there
was a "joker" In tho compromised
hide and leather djueotlpn had upset
the comfortable majority that had previously counted on for tho adoption of
tho roport.
Tho difficulty appoared to bo a lack
of understanding botwoon tho conferees, the president and tho wostorn
senators concerning tho condition nn
dor which the lattor coiiBontod to

Tho Westerners claimed that thoy
had been led to bollovo that all goods
and shoos of leather woro to bo dutiable v 1(1 per cent and all harness it*
20 per cont. Whon the conferees' roport was IbriiciV It appoared that tho
reductions applied only to articles
manufactured In chief part of the
class of hldoH which wero to ho made
free of duty.
The reductions would not apply lo

Stenovics' mind excelled ln the waiting game, the slow, tortuous approach,
the inch by Inch advance of leisurely
diplomacy. For him this crisis, was at
first too sudden. The swift and daring
Intellect of Stafnltz naturally, and Inevitably took the lead. His strong will
fascinated his confederates. - ,
a "Is this to be/the beginning or tho

Stenovics was regaining tbe use of
his brain. His eyes grew, distant ln
deep meditation. Countess Ellenburg
looked eager and grim. Her lips could
not swear a false oath—well, she was
not asked to swear any oath now.
Markart- could not think. , Ho stood
staring at Stafnltz.,
"In half an hour that courier must
start for Praslok If be starts at all. Of
.all things, wo mustn't hesitate."   '
Ho had painted the result to them of
tbe coming of King'Serglus, It meant
the defeat of years of effort It entailed tho end of hopes, of place, pf powor
or influence Thero was no future for
thoso three In Kravonia if King Sor-
gius came. And Markart, of course,
seemed no moro than ono of Stonovles'
train. \
"And If tho courier doesn't start?" asked Stenovics. Ho took out a cigar and
lit It, asking no loavo of tbo countess,
Probably bo hardly knew that ho was

Stafnltz, looked at his watch. "Flvo

"Once you wanted to play the big
stake on a bad hand, general. Won't
you put It on the table--now, -when
you've a good one?"   . « '•
"I'm thinking of a certain strong card

mentioned yet Baroness Dobrava is
to be iu our power by this time tomorrow, but what will the Prince of Slavna be doing? Still drilling bis men at

v Stafnltz looked him full ln the face.
"No," he said. "The prince had better
not still be drilling bis men at Volsenl
nor waiting for bis guns,"      ; •
"I think not too," Stenovics agreed,
twisting his cigar round again.;
- "General, do you think. the prince
will  let  Baroness  Dobrava  come to
Slavna without him?"
"I don't know." He might'have confidence enough ln you. He wouldn't
wish to annoy or agitate the king. He
might await his summous to an audience. On the whole, I think he would
submit and rely on being able to Induce tbe king to alter his mind when
they met I'm not sure he -wouldn't advise her to go with-you."' -,   .,. „
"Well, yes, I confess that struck me,
too, ds rather likely or at least possible."   ■     .,, 7 '*•■;'-.- .
"If it "happened It wouldn't be con*

sigh, "because he would come after her
in a day or two."
"But if ,1 were detained by urgent
bosiness- in Slavna—and we've agreed
that there's work to be done tomorrow,
In Slavna—another officer would go to
Praslok. The order, which I have here,
mentions no, name, although the.king
designated me by, word of mouth."
"The order mentions no name?"    *
"No; it directs the baroness to accompany the bearer. True, at the foot my
name is written, 'Intrusted to Colonel
Stafnltz.' But with care and a pair of
scissors"- He smiled at Markart again,
as though taking him into tbe joke. -

prince trust the baroness to the care
of that officer as readily as to you?

■ Stafnltz . still-, wore «hls easy, confidential smile as be answered,, with an
air of Innocent slyness: "Suppose the

Even Stenovics started a little at
that He laid down bis cigar and looked at his friend the colonel for-some
seconds. Then he looked at Markart
smiling, seeming to ponder, to watch
how Markart was' taking it even to
.sympathize with Markart on having to
consider a rather startling proposal, on
having possibly to do some littlo' violence to his feelings. Certainly Captain Markart gathered tho Impression
that Stenovics was doubtful how he
would stand this somewhat staggering

Markart shrugged bis shoulders helplessly. ■ Silence came again. Very long
it seemed; but ori looking at his watch.
Markart found that it* was not yet half
paste.;.   '      ' y ■   ', •  -
Again the dooropened, and Stafnltz
called-to them both. They followed
him1 into, the next room. Stenovics
was sitting at the table, with his hands
clasped on it-in front of him. Stafnltz
took up a position, by his side, standing
as though on duty. Natcheff bad disappeared., Stenovics spoke in calm,
deliberate tones. 'He seemed to have
assumed command' of the operations
again:   '" 0    •
"Captain Markart I'm about to intrust to you an important and responsible duty. .For. the next twenty-four
hours* and afterward until relieved by
my orders you will be in charge of this
man Lepage and \will detain him in
these apartments. -. His own room and
this room will be at the disposal of.
yourself and your prisoner, but you
must not iet the prisoner out of your
sight Dr. Natcheff remains in his
room. He will, have access to tbe king's
room whon he desires, but he will not
leave the suit of apartments. Beyond
seeing to this you will have no responsibility for him. The door leading to
the suit will be locked by me nnd will
be opened only by me or by-my orders.
I remain at the palace tonight* Dnder
me Captain Sterkoff will bo tbe officer
on guard. He will himself supply you
with any meals or other refreshments
wbich you may require. Ring this
band bell oh the table—no other bell,
mind—and he will be with you Immediately. Do you understand your orders?"
Markart understood them very well
There, was uo need of Stafnitz's niocb
Ing little smile to point tlu* meaning
Markart-was to ' be'- Lepage's jailer:
Sterkoff was to be his. Under the
most civil and considerate form be was
made as close a prisomer as the man
he guarded. Evidently Stenovics;had
come, to tbe conclusion that be could
not ask. Markart to put too great a strain
on his conscience. The general, bow-
ever, seemed very kindly disposed toward him nnd was. indeed, almost
"I've every bope that this responsible
and. I fear, very irksome duty may last
only the fow hours I - mentioned. Yon
put me under a personal obligation by
undertaking it. my dear Markart."
in the absence of any choice Markart
saluted and answered. "I understand
my..orders, general."   •
Stafnltz iuterposed, "Captain Sterkoff
Is also aware of their purport."
Stenovics looked vexed. "Yes, yes.
but I'm sure Markart himself Is quite
enough." It seems odd that In the
midst of such a transaction as that in
which he was engaged Stenovics should
have found, leisure or heart to caro
about Markart's feeling Yet so it was
—a curiously human touch cropping lu
He shut,Markart up only undei xlw

Lepage's heart ,\vas .wrung, but his
spirit was not broken. Stufijltz's Ironical smile called1 un answering one to his
lips. ,■*-•'.*-
"It. would console my. feelings if I
also were put in cbarge'of somebody,
general," he said., "Shall'I, ln ray turn,
keep an eye on Dr. Natcheff or report
If the captain bcro Is remiss in the duty
of keeping himself a prisoner'/"
"I don't think you need trouble your-
'self, M. Lepnge.   Captain Sterkoff will
reilovo you of responsibility,"   To Lepage, too, Stenovics was gentle, urbane,
almost* apologetic.
"And how long am 1 to live, general?"     ,!
"You'ro In tho enviable position, M. Lepage, of being ablo, subject to our common mortality, to settle- tbat for your

VANCOUVER. Aug. 4—W. D. Scott
Dominion emigration agent here, today
en route to Pririce' Rupert, said that
the indications are that 180,000 people
Will settle in the Dominion during tha
year starting April 1 last.
That 50,000 Americans will come in
is assured by the records of April.and
May when 23,316 persons crossed tha
line as settlers. The department was
instituting' strict, measures to secure
the best class of Immigrants and nearly half the arrivals from the states ar**-
taking up homesteads.
Mr. Scott says that as the prairie
country is being filled up inquiries are
coming in concerning British Columbia
are coming in and the appearances in
dicate a rush over,the Rockies in tho
near future.
The Japanese are reported ,to be
faithfully • observing the, immigration
restrictions of that country.
LONDON, Aug. 4—-The emigrants
to Canada form England last June
were 8li5 as against 7768 in June o*.
last year.
The Canadian Associated Press has
learned that in order to confirm the
official status of the Canadian govern1
ment appointees in foreign countries
and in order to place* them beyond the-
restrictive influence of, British resident
officials as was attempted in.the recent Preston controversy in Japan,
which might seriously have affected
the Canadian trade prospects, the colonial office has consented to belt the
medium through which notification is
to be given foreign governments of
the appointment of Canadian officials
to foreign countries.
This is the result of recent strong
representation made by the Canadian
government to the colonial office.

The Commercials; and* Coal Company played a listless game of, ball
last night in the league series. Di-
rectlyth'e game was over the manager
of tho Commercials, released McKellar,' and as though prearranged,. the
manager of the Coal Company team
signed him on. Not satisfied ' with
that style of frame, up to try and win
the pennant thoy signed on a Moyie
and a Hosmer player by names, Oris-
ler nnd Hogan.
Sport Is sport, but this is a now
brand, and as the Coal Company team
have beon (taking considerable, lt
would hardly luive been expected of
them. What chance havo tho other
teams against such a llno-up? Tho
rules of tho league, If rightly Interpreted, say that a playor muBt bo n resident of tbo city nnd slgnod on seven days boforo being allowed to play,
Aro tho officials going to stand for
outside mon being signed on?
Tho only npparont way for othors to
boat thom would bo at' tliolr own

It mildly. Thoy playod ns If tlioy
