Town for Dominion
Day Sports
Large Crowd Make The
Trip-Good Prizes
The Miners' picnic on Thursday proved to be a huge success; The day
was everything that could "be wished
for and about 1600 people took advantage of the trip. The first train left
Coal Creek at 7 and was well packed
by the miners and their families. The
-".. train arrived ln good time' at Elko and
* "then returned to take the Fernie peo-
■ pie. The Salvation, Army band whicli
,-was in attendance paraded the street
and as the.train steamed into the sta
tion they struck up again and played
until the people left. Their selections
played at the sports were well chosen
and" beautifully played and enlivened
the proceedings greatly. The train was
gaily decorated with' flags- and bunting, kindly lent by Mr.- J. D. Hurd,
; and- the engine was decorated with evergreens by Mr., John Dwyer. The
staff of the AI, F.'and M. worked very
hard to make the picnic a success, and
many thanks are due to them. Mr. J.
D, Hurd came to the G. N. station to
see that things were going satisfactorily, but owing to the illness of Mrs.
Hurd he was unable to take in the picnic as he had intended, but Mr. Chas.
Simister,- the general superintendent,
together with Mrs. Simister, and Mrs.
Holman,. their daughter, and Mr.Ash-
., more,vmining expert, made the trip.

The Jootball contest between Coal
Creek boys and Fernie ended in a
draw, both sides scoring two goals
each. The weather was very warm,
but the boys did not trouble about the
weather or sometimes about the referee , .The game was fast and furious
and an extension of time of 10 minutes each way was'granted; Fernio
drew first blood scoring a goal.in the
first half, but just before time was called for first half Coal Creek equalized.
Returning with added zest to tho
game Coal Creek scored another goal
but before time was called Fernie was
even. The prizes were $11 first and
$5.50 second.
The football match between miners
and carpenters, the wrestling match,
and several other events had to be
abandoned owing to Its being near the
train time and many of the contestants
returned with the first train.

John Caldwell, employed as timber-
main's'helper at No. 2"mine on the
midnight shift, died in that, mine on
Wednesday morning about ,5 o'clock,
presumably from.heart failure. ' He
was working in the district known as
the highllne together -with another
tlmberman, and was putting a sprag
in a stationery Umber tram, and fell
down. •* The tlmberman called out to
him, and,upon receiving no answer, he
noticed.that there was something the
matter, and "came" and, found"him expiring. A short time after he had
breathed his last. He wasr brought
out and taken to the undertakers at
Fornio., He was a single "man about
60 years of age and was living In tho
Annex. He wan an uncle to the Philip
Caldwell that died as a result of the
bump in No. 2 mine last July. The
funeral took place on Friday after-
By almost a unanimous vote the
members of District No. 18 U. M. W.
of A. have decided to resume work
along the lines of the new agreement,
and consequently the executive of the
district sent notices to the secretaries
of the various locals In the district to
the effect that mining operations
would, be resumed on Friday,' ' July
2nd,    ' -
This puts an end to the long drawn
out, and bitterly fought strike that has
lasted for three months and has upset-business all through this section
of the country.   .
The miners claim to have secured
a much better agreement than the
proposed Maeleod agreement, and the
public can settle down for a period of
two good years of prosperity without
fear of a strike such as the last.
The agreement was officially signed
on Wednesday by President, Stockett,
Vice-President Naismith, Secretary
Whiteside for the Western Coal Operators association, and President Wm.
Powell, Vice-President C. Stubbs and
Secretary Treasurer A. J. Carter and
International Organizer Thos. James,
for the miners. The full text of the
agreement, will be printed next issue.
The majority and minority reports
of the ■ investigaition committee will
be found on page 2.
The police arrested two noisy individuals on Saturday night last One
of them was making a very loud spiel
that no policeman or anyone else
would run him in. .Chief Clerke
thought just the opposite and put the
cuffs on the man, which had the effect
of bringing him back to earth. A pal
ventured to suggest that he would not
let the police take him and followed
this assertion up by some foul language, so" Chief Clerke instructed Constables Bowen and Gorman to grab
that individual as well. He put up
a game scrap for a minute or two but
the limbs of the law were there and
he was,escorted to the bastile. The
two were let out on Sunday morning
and appeared before Magistrate Whimster on Monday. They each contributed $10 and costs for their noise and
are now sadder and wiser men.

LONDON, July 1—A startling dou-
ble assassination ,of a political character occurred late tonight towards
tho conclusion of a public gntherlng in
the Imperial institute. An Indian student whose nnmo is not known shot

the guests thus graphically described
tho scenes attondlng tho murder*
It was no-ply 11 o'clock and tho mil*
Blcnl program was just cncluded,
when I saw a middle aged English
gentleman conversing with nn Indian
studont. Suddenly tho n.V v< divw
a rovolvor and fired four shots with
tho greatest rapidity at tho head of
tho Englishman.
Thon came another Hhot as tho Englishman fell and a sixth which struck
an elderly Indlnn gontlomnn Htnndlng
a fow yards off and who foil shot In
tho sldo, I rushed ut tho nsBitHHln
and  othors rushed  forwnrd  nt    Iho
same time.- •-, We seized him but he
struggled and released one hand and
placing the revolver at his forehead,
pulled the trigger.
It clicked harmlessly as he had
fired all his shots. 'Meanwhile there
was a terrible commotion, the folding
doors being -closed to keep people in
adjoining rooms'from looking at the
terrible sight. - A doctor in the hall
came forward and knelt ..beside ■ the
Englishman and said .that nothing
could be done for'him.
. At that moment some one exclaimed: "Why it's Curzon Wyllie." Then
a stately woman .in evening dress,
came upstairs from the cloak ' room
to discover what had happened. Looking at the recumbent figure and not
immediately-rec"o"gnizi*rg~ir^He said"
feelingly "Poor fellow." Then she
knelt "down and as she looked closer

• A group of men nearby iwere holding
the assassin whoso victims were still
groaning on the ground a few yards
away, The victims were placed ln an
ambulance and removed to the hospital.. Detectives carried the assassin.
Besides two revolvers a 12 Inch dagger wns found, and a card bearing the
name 'Dhln Argl.' The address was
Ledbury Road, Dayswnter. Various
papers and letters were nlos taken
from the prisoner.
Tho attack oil Sir William occurred

been at, a meeting and had each taken ' a couple of drinks before going
home, but neither ot the three was,
drunk, as had been previously reported. As they approached the river the
conversation was about the stream,
and Jones made the statement that he
could swim the river. The others said
it would be Impossible,- and Jones
walked over to the railing to look at
the water. In some unaccountable
manner his foot stubbed and he fell
head first into tho raging stream and
was never seen agnln. Geo. Wilde ran
down to tho bank, and pulling off his
coat nnd boots jumped heroically Into
the water nnd swam across, thinking
to head off his companion and savo
him. However he could see no sign
of lilm, ho he turned round and swnm
buck, further down tho stream, This
is one of tlio pluckiest nets recorded

and It is almost Hiiicidnl for anyone to

Tf w« are to hav** i\ park, it certainly must be cleared, and the brush must be burned up together with all
other objectionable and unnecessary matter.
Lot this work bo proceeded with along sane and
sensiblo lines. Let thc brush be cut, piled up and then
burnod—but burned on a suitablo day and thoroughly
burned to the lost branch. This school-boy mothod of
burning any old timo and any old way cannot bo tolor-
atod at suoh oIobo proximity to the city and with thc
ever present danger of dire results.
We believe the city let iho r.o*nt,rnr,t, t,rt a-nolhcr pnrty to clean up the land for park purposos. This can
in no way free the city from its full responsibility in thc
mattor of safoRuardintar the citv <rom an invnu-loT. hv firo
from this quartor.
It is certainly inoumbont upon tho authorities to sec
to it that proper methods aro employed, and that sane
and appoved plans are used in the cleaning out of this
land. The issues at stake arc too great to be lightly
shelved to contracting parties, or disposed of in any way
by the Council.
The manner in which citizens turnod out and set
to work at fighting tho firo at tho proper place—right at
tho start—unquestionably headed off a repetition of
the catastrophe of August 1. The fire dopiirtmont also
demonstrated that they aro in a bettor position than bo*
foro to copo with a big firo, and their work was woll
laid and well carried out.
The fact was also brought to mind that the authorities arc acting wisely in making it compulsory to re*
movo all framo buildings from tho fire limits, nnd thi**
work should be carried on without fear or favor, the
only thing being, considered being that no business section in more immuno from fire than tho one frame struc
ture which may be in it
It should also be remembered that no bush fire, no
matter how incipient it may appear, can be allowed to
burn unmolested near the city for even the shortest
space of time. We had one fire almost a year ago—we
want no more.

the miners and most of their friends

Colin Maeleod, of Maeleod, tbe operators' nominee on the board of conciliation has forwarded his minority
report^ to the Department of Labor at

To the Honorable..tbe Minister of Labor, Ottawa, Out.:
Sir:—ln the matter of the Industrial
Disputes Investigation Act.    1907, and
The Hillcrest Coal and Coke Co., Ltd.,

said strike to be declared at, oach of
the said' collieres named, and the
board should inquire inlo thc dispute
ed on what is known as "Bear Valley

ground that the seam is the original
No. 1 Lille seam, already under contract rates, and that by reason of a
fault, they were obliged to work this
seam under the rates applicable to abnormal conditions. From personal inspection of the mine and evidence
adduced, the Board is of the opinion
that ' the contention of tho Operators

I havo had the advantage of. seeing,'Indus'rfal   Disputes  Investigation  Act
the award of my colleagues, and regret thai, notwithstanding we are
agreed as to the matter in dispute,
we differ as to the conception of onr
duties. 1 feel that under section 2G of
'The Industrial 'Disputes Investigation
Act,'* it is Incumbent upon the board
to deal with each item of the Reference, and that the board should not
hesitate to give an opinion upon the
question's it is called upon to decide.
The objection I have to signing the
award of my colleagues, will, no doubt
be your objection to accepting it—it. is
not an award. .Moreover, I feel that
after the prolonged investigation held
in the matter, that the board should
be in a position to render a decision
upon at least one of the questions in
dispute, and that it should not return
the reference to you without a word
of comment, as to the merits of the
Since the 20th day of May last the
board has practically been in continuous session during which time voluminous evidence was taken, and after
full and thorough investigation and
inspection I beg to report, on the matters in dispute, as .follows:
This dispute arose by reason of the
parties being unable to renew an
agreement0 which expired on the 31st
day of March, 1909. From the evidence adduced, it appears that during
their representatives, met in conference and made an agreement satisfactory to tho representatives, which the
operators agreed to adopt and which
was -Mihmitta-d to Hie several local uu-
ions for consideration, on a referendum, vole. This vote carried by a
large majority, but notwithstanding
this vote, and the agreement of the
committees, operations were, suspended by the applicants. „
Tho following is the text of the application and reply:

•1. That the demands of thc applicants, as shown on page 1 of said application, is unfair, and should not
be allowed, and in lieu of the said
demands, the ■ following should be adopted :
IT IS HEREBY AGREED.        .    -
Between the Western Coal Operators Association (consisting of Bank-
head Mines Ltd., Tlie W. H. McNeill
Co., Ttd.. Coal Department of the Alberta Railway and Irrigation Co., the
Royal Collieries Co., Ttd., The Loitch

employees of the said companies, as
represented by the United Mine Workers of America, District Xo. 18, of
the other part, that the following
agreement, respecting general provisions, and scale of contract prices and
wages, shall govern the parties hereto, for the period ending, March 31st,
1912; it being understood and agreed
that the parties thereto will meet in
conference thirty days prior to the
expiration of this agreement to' discuss
a renewal thereof.
5 That the agreement made between
the parties hereto,* at the conference
held in March, 1909, should be ailopt-
cations following*.'
.   (a)    The check-off clause should be
struck out.  '
(b) After the twenty fifth word; in
t,he discrimmination clause,.the words
"or Interference with" should be inserted.
(c) ' In the schedule relating to outside and inside wages, the clause
in regard to minimum and higher lyases should be omitted.
(d) There should be a differential on
all pillars, and a reduction on some of

e) A blnckmlths charge of »0c per

mends that thore should be some consideration _given the minors, for   the
extra timbering required.
Differential on Pillars
fi. The Board is also of tho opinion
that, the system of paying for Umber,
in the pillars nt Coleman and Hillcrest
mines constitutes a grievance on (lie
part of the companies, and in view of
tlio fact that the ovidoneo disclosed
that different ia I on pillars should exist in all pitching seams tho board
recommends that this matter,' together with tho demand relating to differential on pillars at Bellevue, be referred to the specinl committee.
Other Demands
C. The demands relating to Blacksmith's charges aud the price of coal
at mines being trivial, the Board cannot recommend any variance with the
Maclood agreement to which each party, has committed itself.
7. The Board says in regard' to tha.
matter of discrimination, that hav
ing heard the evidence submitted by
the applicants, to the effect that some
Managers discriminated between nonunion and union men, and that union
men have discriminated against non
union men, and being satisfied that
sucli evidence Is correct, the Board is
of the opinion that" a discrimination
clause should be embodied in the agreement to1 be made between the parties.'    ' " 7'
Unfortunately, one of the members
of the Board, who has a practical
knowledge of mining, is 111 and unable
to discuss and advise with me, there-
in regard „to the Lille, Bellevue, Hillcrest and Coleman, mines,-but in' lieu
thereof, recommend the same to the
consideration of the Special Committee, as provided for in the agreement
hereinafter written, and recommended
also that it be embodied in the agreement, that the special committee meet
at the earliest possible moment.
Having in mind the agreements
which existed between the parties bo-
fore the first day of, April, 1909, and
the Maeleod agreement, which was approved of on a referendum vote, I havo
compiled nn agreement, based on those
agreements, Milch I would recommend
to tho parties for acceptance, subject
to the findings of the Special Commltteo iu regard to tho Bollovue, Hillcrest
Coleman and Lille mines, which, when
mnde, should constitute a part of tho
said agroomont.

GRAND FORKS, June 29—The arbitration board which sat at Greenwood

to keep away from the mines

"Unless some feeling can arise which

In human nature, even if the party is of

If the employer will fairly. recognize

will continue forever.''
The union rejected the majority report and accepted the minority one of

ST.,MICHAELS, Md. June 2S— The
coroner's inquest into the death of Mrs.
Edith May Woodill will be resumed
today^with several of the jurors still
convinced that there was a large element of truth in the letter left by Lame
Bob Eastman, the fugitive broker and
suicide, who declared that there had
been a party in his bungalow, and
that Mrs; Woodill had been aua'-l i-*i
by a.-jealous woman and slain by a
champagne bottle.
The jury will meet in the lonely little
bungalow itself within sight of the
grave to which the body of Eastman
wffs conveyed early yesterday with
no further ceremony than the muttered prayers pf a few laymen.
Theories' as to how, when or why
the murder was committed are borne
upon every wind. There is no indication that Eastman's' identity was
about to be discovered by the authorities and that he had asked Mrs. Wood-
ill to flee to Europe with him. _'
Prior to the murder Eastman's neighbors would have been prepared to
defend lilm against, any; imputation
of his character, but aftor all is said,
the striking fact remains that Eastman
following the murder, for which he
claimed in the letter that he was not
responsible, came to Baltimore and
pawned the jewels of the woman, joked with his acquaintances, showed a
roll oif bills which would make the frugal country side open their oyes in
wonder, and conducted himself in the
coolest possible manner.
He showed no trace of excitement
until .after the identity of the body
became known and he was told that he
had better not leave the country.'
It. is then that he made his plans
to escape, and failing in that', took his
own life. The members of the coroner's jury who believe there Is any truth
in Eastman's letter are anxious that,
the mystery of the launch containing
two women ancl three men which was
seen coming out of Broad Creek, on
which the bungalow is located, shall be
cleared up. Three wine and two
whiskey bottles which had been used,
were found in the bungalow subsequent to the murder.
., They today'intimated that the investigations into the identity of the persons seen in the launch comng out of
Broad Creek on Sunday may lead to
the arrest of some one at any moment .

The paternal interest which employers manifest
in those men whose "scruples dof'not permit them
to become ."members, of the union,", is certainly a
beautiful thing to behold iu these days of bustle and
hurry; and-the pathetic feature is that these same
non-union men seem to imagine that they are serving their own ends best by withholding their membership from the union and trusting to their employers for a fair deal. The unquestioned truth
is that whatever degree of fair conditions have
been granted, are the direct outcome, not of the
philanthropy of capitalists, though the sophistries
advanced' on their behalf might lead some casual
student to think so, but they are,the direct outcome
of years of struggle and sacrifice by consistent union members, who have had'not only their own
welfare at heart, but who have looked ahead to the
future status of members of their .craft..
May. the'miners of Greenwood   have a   short,
clean contest, and may .success be theirs.

The cessation of hostilities.and the resumption
of operations in, the coal fields of the west, where
for months past industrial stagnation has been in
vogue, will be welcome news to miners, lo operators
and to the business men'of the communities affected by the strike.
The majorities registered in favor of accepting
the 'agreement arrived at between the Operators
.Association and Ihe officers of district 18 .speaks
well for ii permanent basis of a good understanding,
for where a large number of workers favor such
an agreement it goes without saying that this very
preponderance carries with it a guarantee .of enforcement of its provisions.
Good, clean sport is always looked upon with favor by all. and Fernie is no exception. But the
trouble is that all sport does not take ou the garb
of cleanliness. It is an unfair proposition to ask
outsiders to come here, pay their expenses, and then
find that instead of playing Fernie, they are up
against a mixed aggregation partly composed of
outside players. It is not good sport.. It is graft,
and the sooner it is stopped the better for tlie good
name of our town. Thc Athletic Association under whose auspices any games are run should see
that they are kept clean. At present there is too
much a oue man proposition at the head of that
Associaion.     Better clean up a bit. :

To the district officers nothing but words   of j upon.     The writer was not aware that the miners
commendation can be extended for the manner in
which they have tried, and finally succeeded, to
bring about .a speedy settlement without sacrificing
tlie interests they represent.
■ 'Twas a fortunate day for Fernie when the
Crows Nest Pass Company withdrew from the Op-,
erators association, and was thus left free to meet
the men and arrange working agreements without
the meddlesome interference of the Western Coal
Operators association, whose existence seems to ebb
and flow with the expiration and drawing up of
working agreements.
Strikes are. undesirable from the point of view
of miners or operators, and may the day hasten
when some more humane means can be conceived
of settling industrial disputes and righting wrongs
in the workers world.
had held their sports on the 1st of July for the last
five years. The head of the Athletic association
was aware of it. and without consulting the miners,
brought up the question of a field day for that
occasion .* It is a regrettable feature that, the min-
ers.who are the bone and sinew of our city, were
totally ignored in this regard. The result, financially and otherwise, would have been much better
for the city had the miners been consulted. Next
year, perhaps, the "individual" head of the Athletic Association will remember the men who make
Fernie what she is.

wound was inflicted following a general family row in Whte's home. Walter
after he was stabbed ran screaching
from the house and started for his father's home. He was found, living,
by the highway twenty rods away, at

the day George White was arrested,
and brought to Norwich where he Is

We are informed that an at home
was held in the Quarters on \*^ednes
day evening.
The attendance at the Alaska-Yukon Pacific exposition "having passed
the half million mark at the end „ of
the first three weeks, means that the
undertaking is an assured success
from a,, financial standpoint. It is
the experience of all fairs that the first
month has the fewest visitors, so that
July, August, September and October
ahead, it is estimated that between' 6,-
000,000 and 7,000,000 persons will pas's
the gates. - The big travel from the
east, will begin next month, and ae
cording to railroad men it is going to
be something unprecedented. Every-
is a.-remarkable fact that all mediums
of publicity have sounded its praises.
The prediction^ made that next year's
influx of newcomers will exceed all
previous records; as those who.como
this summer will go home and during
the winter months they will spend the
time talking about the northwest to
such an extent that not only they, but
all their friends will be leaving tho
old homo for a new one In this, great
land of promise in 1910.
ASHCROFT;,B, C. June 30—Word
was brought into town this afternoon
that, a :man,!employed on* English's
ranch 18 miles out was held up on the
old Cariboo road while on his way
home, by a desperate looking individual, who in some respects tallies
with the description of the murderer
of Constable Decker.
,A posse of 15 mounted police started in pursuit immediately. The man
says he stumbled on the. desperade
while he was lying down behind some
bushes. He had the appearance of
a man completely exhausted. He
drew a gun on- the rancher and said
"Are you the man wlio killed' my part-"
ner in Ashcroft?'
The rancher said "No,'I am on the
way to my ranch."'*
The hold up man advised him to
keep going. News of his capture is
hourly expected.

On Tuesday, Juno 29, the new opera
house in Elko was opened by a grand
ball and supper given by the.Canadian Steel Bridge Company men to
their* Elko friends.    Mr.. Ed.  Prettie
■ and his crew of brldgemen must feel
proud of the brilliant success they
met with in returning their appreciation for,the courtesies extended to them
by tbe'Elko people.     The auditorium
, was a bower of wild flowers. As tne
clock was striking the hour the Italian string band under the leadership
of Signor Guiseppe Rlccardq, filled the
opera- house with. strains of most so
■ ductive music and fully 75 couples took
. part in the "opening grand march and
Sicilian circle. To describe the beautiful dresses worn by the ladles would
beggar the English language, and the
, human imagination falls faint and fee
ble before the Herculean task. The
-• assembly rooms wore used as reception rooms for the invited guests, ana
were in charge of Mrs. Glen Campbell, Mrs. M. Thorpe and six assistants. The parlor and sitting rooms
were used for ladies" dressing and
cloak rooms, which proved    a   great
".At midnight the guests were invited
to the banquet hall, where a sumptuous
luncheon that would make a  palace
dining car look like a lunch counter,
-added to Mr. and Mrs. Klengin-
simth's.reputation as high class caterers'. After supper Mr. Ed.-, Prettie,
superintendent of the bridgemen, made
a very appropriate speech and thanked the people in Elko for the many
kindnesses "shown them while in  El-
' ko, and said he would, always be a
good booster for Elko.     Mr. Blaney,
' the celebrated tailor, looking as green
t as the Emerald Isle, recited that pathetic brlney bringer, "Curfew-__ Must
Not Ring-Tonight" and for an encoie
"The Riders of the' Plains," and you
would'swear you could hear the horses
iv   *
galloping outside. Dancing was then
resumed and lasted until.4 a.m. when
the orchestra* swung ,into thc. plaintive
melody of Home, Sweet, Home, and
the guests who had stayed that late
said the last good" bye's and drove
■ away. "''•'.
Fully two thousand ' people visited

pass to Davis, who in turn passed to
Hurtwell, but Dickie stopped the run
and Climie with a nice shot scored the
first goal for Scotland. On,the ball
being kicked off Scotland pressed but
the ball went behind. Crooks kicked
from the goal kick and put the ball to
the toe of Climie who promptly shot,
and scored the second goal for Scotland., England got busy after this and
pressed; Scotland gave away a foul
from which Hutson scored with a beautiful shot. From the "kick, off Scotland
pressed and Mathison and Climie added a goal each, so that when whistle
blew for1 half time Scotland was leading by four, to one. .England expected to go great with the wind at their
backs but the defence of Scotland was
simply invulnerable and after England
had pressed, Climie took" away and
scored his fourth goal from a penaity
against Balderstoiie for fouling Weldon. England became desperate and
shifted the players around, and even
tually Oake scored a second goal. From
the kick off Scotland pressed and
Weldon being fouled, Dalling took ihe
kick which he sent into goal, the goalie
foozled the ball and Gordon put.
through another for Scotland. Shortly
after this Weldon and Balderstoiie got.
mixed upon the run and both wereu
Injured so the whistle blew for time'
up In favor of Scotland by 7 to 2. The
score just about represents the play
for Scotland's defence was as sound as
a bell. Pratt did well in goal; Wright
and Bailing kicked and tackled like
Trojans. Dickie, Cornet and Llght-
lfou"se"sfuck to their" men like leeches,
and gave them no chance to shine. Tlie
forwards all played a good game and
scored from every opportunity. England's goal and back were poor, but
the "half backs 'all'played well but did
not support the forwards, who • were
very poor with the exception of Bal-
edrstone, who spoiled his good playing
by being too eager,

tlio Michel tonm got.*complololy rattled
nnd questioned., ovory doclslon of the
umpire vyltli the' result that Ted Courtney, who is one of the best and fairest umpires in the Pass, left the box.
This was a regrettable incident, and
Michel- got roasted as they deserved.
Mr. Easterbrook of Michel was umpire now and everything went .well
until Gordon hit a ball out of ,the
field and was going round the bases
like a racehorse. He got'to'third,
and stood there when the pitcher got
the ball he walked over and touched
Gordon with the ball and claimed ■ he
was out as he had never touched on
2nd base. His claim was' supported
by the umpire to the disgust of every
one present.* Another umpire was suggested, and Michel left the field. It
was seen from the beginning that Michel was going to be kicking, all the
time, and it was no surprise when
Michel left the groynil.
Still our team acted as sportsmen all
the time. Both Hamilton and Oliver
got hurt during the short time that the
gas was on. Oliver got laid out completely and took no more part in the
game. The result was Hosmer 7, .Michel 11. -      . •
Jim Watson came back from the old

week end with Mrs. D. Dunlop In
. A scrub game of. ball between Hosmer and the C. P. R. was got up for
Sunday night, the C. P. R. being to
the good by one urn.
Say boys, did you see Bert Swan ton
make that home run. He walloped the
ball out of the field and with his'head
down went the round of the diamond
in record timo. He certainly is a sport
from away back.
We notice-that Frank' Woods and

PITTSBURG, Pa. June 28—Following three joint .conferences last night
between officials of the Pittsburg Ry.
Company and President Mahon of the
Amalgamated association of Street &
Electric Railway Employees and the
district grievance committee, all, negotiations looking towards the termination .of Jthe street car strike ,in
Greater Pittsburg were declared off,
and therefore the strike now is on in
Mayor Magee, however, Is making an
effort to bring about a speedy settlement and to that end has Invited the
company officials and" the leaders of
the men to meet in his office tort-'" to
discuss the questions.
President Callery of the Pittsburg
Railway company called upon Mayor
Magee yesterday afternoon. He said
he called to officially notify the mayor, of the strike and to tell the city's
executive that he would expect polico
protection. Beginning this morning
bunks were placed in all the car barns
to house the strike breakers expected
here during the day. Officials of
the company say they are prepared to
protect the men who take the places
of the striking motormen and conductors.       '■ "
The police have announced that reserves are now on duty at all precinct
stations ready for immediate service.
The', sheriff has already sworn in deputies and has placed men at the
various car barns throughout the city.
The sheriff's action followed a receipt
of a communication from President
Callery of the car company calling the
sheriff's attention to the fact that the
car company would hold the. county
of Allegheny responsible for any loss
of property at the hands of the strikers. ' "
Yesterday was quiet throughout the
Greater Pittsburg. No cars ran and
there was but a slight show of the

The game between Coleman and Michel was the only one played in the
competition last Saturday. Michel
succeeded in winning the points, the
final score being 2 to 1 in their favor.
An unfortunate accident happened in
the game Fraser (Coleman) having his
leg broken. No blame is attached to
any one as the accident was, iwe, understand, purely accidental. We extend our sympathy to Mr. Praser, aiid
to the Coleman club who lose the services of a valuable player. The game
was well contested'throughout. '-^Coleman in their handicapped condition,
tried hard to divide the points, but
failed. Michel by their win are now
in a strong position and are- three
points ahead of their nearest rival.
Frank and ru.llevue played a League
gamo during the week, Frank winningjj,'^ jngenei,u.

He's a good.sport but a hard loser.

Gibson, Cunningham, B. Kirkpatrick,
Robinson, Barclay, Liphart.     J*

. Some uniform system of scoring the
games would be much appreciated,
and it's up to the management to find
a man who can keep a proper score,
as he has not showed up yet. ■

the first game for possession, of
Minto cup by four goals to six. \
The game was one of the best seen
in the west, the teams being well matched and each playing with desperation. The first quarter was a long,
drawn out contest, resulting in only
one goal, every attempt oh the New
Westminsters to bore into Tecumsehs
net being met with a resistance which
made the champions lose the ball or
attempt long passes with fatal results
to their chances. Tecumsehs valiantly
time and again carried, the ball down
ithe field only to find that famous stone
wall defence was still in working order.
Many shots were made during the
first ten minutes of the quarter, but
all xvere either from long distances or
wild through enthusiasm. Finally Ren-
iii'e carried to the veteran player, Alex.
How have the mighty fallen!
Yes—the Ledger, hitherto the
enders in the city league, took a new-
lease of life, together with a new
o supply of ginger, and waded through
the Coal Barons on Monday night to
-»^Jjhe_eyienL_of 12 to 9 in a nine innimjs
game. "*
It was by all odds the fastest game
played ln the city league this year,
and we are brave enough to say that
the win appeared to be a popular one
with the crowd.
For the winners the battery, Rochon'and F. Kirkpatrick, starred all
the way through; Rochon's arm is fast
coming to him, and the one, two, three
■ and back to the bench route was in
order many times over'., The infield
was fast, and snappy, and the game never lagged for a minute. Rush at left
made a sensational stab at a lone drive
on  the  track,  and  retired  his  man.
Pearson, a new south paw was tried
out at third, and the way he puts them
on is classy, Mf'Doiignll gathered up
everything at. short and Moody fielded
in fine stylo off second," Half n dozen
runners were tagged in second trying
to steal from first.

The Dominion forest reserves oc
cupy an important place in the report
for the year 1908 of the Superintendent of Forestry, Mr. R. H. Campbell,
which has lately been issued.
1 The Riding Mountain reserve, the
largest of these, is the most fully
treated. Its topography and condition in regard to lumbering are noted
and emphasis is placed on the important place it must occupy in regard to
the water supply of the adjacent country, both for' domestic and industrial
purposes. An evidence of the latter
is the granting of permission to the
Minnedosa Power Co. of Minnedosa,
Man., to erect a dam on Clear Lake,
in the reserve, so as to render the
water of, the Little Saskatchewan
available for the production of power.
The timber survey of the reserve is
practically completed. - The fire, ranging service on the reserve and, in addition oh the Duck Lake and Porcupine reserves was during the year previous (1907) organized with a chief
ranger in charge and six assistant
rangers. ' The protection of game on
the reserve is also being given consideration. ,, .,
An Important aspect of the management of the Moose "Mountain reserve
results from" its use as a summer resort especially along the shore of
Lake Fish. Regulations for granting
occupation of camping sites by. lease
or otherwise are under consideration
The main question is the management
of this reserve and its protection from
fire. .' '     '•
.. The setting aside of' the permanent
forest reserve to the north of the
Saskatchewan river opposite Prince
Albert has also been recommended.
Notice is also taken of the resolution passed by the Irrigation 'convention in 1907 favoring a forest reserve
on Ihe eastern slope of the Roo.klen.

never received.

often, silent often, always together m
thought as ln bodily presence—was not
this enough? "If l had to die in a
month I'should'owe life a tremendous
debt already." That is her own summing up.   It is pleasant to remember.
It would he enough to, say—love;
enough with a nature ardent as hers.
Xet with, love much .else conspired.
There was the thought of what she had
done, of the things to which she was a
party. There was the sense of power,
the satisfaction of ambition, a promise
of more things. There was the applnuse of Volsenl as well as the demotion of the prince. There was, too—it
persisted nil through her life—the funny, half childish and, to a severe eye,
urchiulike pleasure In tho feeling that
theso wore line doings for Sophy
Grouch of Mbrpliigham, In Essex!
"Fancy me!" is the indefensibly primitive form in which this delight shows
In one of the few letters bearing date
from the castle of Praslok.
. Yet It is possible to find this simple,
gracious surprise at fortune's fancies
worthy of love, ner own courage, her
own catching at fortune's forelock,
seemed to have heen always unconscious ancl instinctive. These sho never hints at nor even begins to analyze.
Of her love for the priuce'she speaks
once or twice and once in reference to
what she had,felt for Casimir. "I loved,
him most when he left me and when
he died," she writes. "I love him not
less now because" I love monselgneur,
but I can love monselgneur more for
having loved Casimir. God bade the
dear dead die, but he bade me live, and
death helped to teach me how to do it."
Again she reflects, "How wonderfully
everything is worth while—even sorrows!" Following which reflection in
the very next line—she Is writing to
Julia Robins—comes the naive outburst: "I look just splendid in my
sheepskin tunic, and he's given me the
sweetest toy of a revolver. That's in
case they ever charge and try and ent
us up behind our guns!" She is laugh-'
ing at herself, but the laugh is charged
■with an infectious enjoyment. So she
lived, loved and laughed through those
unequaled days, trying to soothe Marie
Zerkovitch,"bantering Max von Hollbrandt, giving her masculine mind and
her feminine soul wholly to her prince.
"She was like a' singularly able and energetic sunbeam," Max says quaintly,
himself obviously not untouched by
her attractions.. ,.
The prince's mind,was simple. He
was quite sincere about his guns. He
they had arrived and ho could deliver
them Into the safe custody of his trained and trusty Volsenians and of Lukovitch, their captain. Less than tbat "was
not safety with Stendv.cs In office nnd
Colonel Stnfnlta on duty at the capital.
But Marie Zerkovitch was right, too,
even though overexacting, as Max hnd
told her. The, letter to the king held
but half the truth, and that half not the
more significant. He could not go from
Sophy's side to seek n wife. The desire of his heart and thc delight of his
eyes—she was here in Praslok,
nor charm was not only for his heart
nnd eyes, her fascination not solely for
his passion. On Ills intellect nlso she
laid her powerful hold, opening the narrow confines of his mind to broader
views 'nnd softening thu rigor of his
Ideals.' lie had seen himself only ns
tho stem mauler, tho just chastlsor of
a turbulent cnpltnl and an unruly sol*
dlory. But whs thoro not a hlghor aim?
Might he not be loved lu tho plains ns
on tho hills, nt Slavna ns at Volsenl?
By himself he could not nchlev,o tbnt,
Ills pride—uny, Ills obstluncy—forbade

•"Ah, tben"-

"My i/mii.'"
"Our company will be ready too.
We'll march down to Slavna arid meet
the guns!" He laughed. "Oh.-I'll be
very pleasant to Slavna now, just as
you advise me. We'll meet them with
smiles on our faces." He came up to
her and laid his hand on hers. "You've
done this for me,'.' he said, smiling still,
yet growing more grave.
"It'll be the end of this wonderful
time, of this our time together!"
"Of our time at Praslok—not of our
time together. What! Won't Lieutenant Baroness Dobrava march with her
She smiled doubtfully, gently shaking her head. "Perhaps. But when we
get to Slavna— Oh, I'm sorry that
this time's so*'nearly done!"
He looked nt her gravely for a few
moments, making perhaps a Inst quick
calculation—undergoing perhaps a last
short struggle. But the red star glowed
against the pallor of her face. Her
eyes were gleaming beacons.
"Neither the guns nor the men nor
Slavna—no, nor the crown, when that
time comes—without you!" ho said.
i. She rose slowly, tremblingly, from
her chair and stretched out her hands
ln an instinctive protest t'Monsel-
gneurl"0 Then she clasped her hands,
setting her, eyes on his and whispering
again, yet lower. "Monselgneur!"
"Marie Zerkovitch says fate sent you
to Kravonia. I think she's right, Fate
dld-my fate. I think It's fated that
we are to be together to the end, Sophy."   ,.
A step creaked on tho old stairs.
Marie Zerkovitch was coming down
from her room on the floor above. The
door of the dining room stood open,
but neither of them heard the step.
They were engrossed, and the sound
passed unheeded.
Standing there, with hands still
clasped and eyes still bound to his, sbe
spoke again, and Marie Zerkovitch
stood by the door and heard .the quick
yet clear words, herself fascinated, unable to move, or speak.
"I've meant nothing of it. I've
thought nothing of it I seem to have
done nothing toward it It has just
come to me." Her tone took on a
touch of entreaty, whether It were to
him or to some unseen power which
ruled her.life and to which she might
have to render an account
"Yet it is welcome?" he asked quietly. She was long in answering. He
waited swlthout impatience, in a confidence devoid of doubt. Sbe seemed to
seek for the whole truth and to give lt
to him In gravest.' fullest words.
"It is life, non-seigneur." she said.
"I can',t see life without It now."
He held out his hands, and very slowly she laid hers in them.
"It is enough, nnd nothing else could
have been enough from you to me and
from me to you," he said gently. "Unless we live It together I think lt can
bo no life for us now." ,
The chain whleh hnd held Marie Zerkovitch motionless suddenly snapped.
She rushed Into tho room and, forgetful of everything In her agitation,
sclKod tho prince by thenrm.
"What  do you   mean?"   she  cried.
"What do you menn?  Are you mnd?"
Ho wns very fond of little Marie, He
looked down at her now, with an affectionate. Indulgent smile.
"Come, you've heard what I said, 1
suppose, though It wasn't meant for
your on re, you know! Well, then, 1
menn just whnt 1 snld, Mnrle."
"But whnt do you menu by It?" Bhe
persisted In n feverish, almost childish,
excitement. She turned on Sophy too,
"Ancl whnt do you menn by it, Sophy?" she cried.
Sophy passed n hand ovor hor brow,

were gradually dying away, yet sounded still, an undertone of &ts.:ord with
Sophy's mirth.' She stretched out her
hands toward him again, whispering in
an amused pity, "Poor child, she
thought that we should be afraid!"
Out of the dusk of the quiet evening came suddenly the blare of a trumpet, blown from Volsenl by a favoring
breeze. It sounded every evening at
nightfall to warn the herdsmen in the
hills of the closing of the gates and
had so sounded from time beyond
man's memory. •
The prince raised his hand to bid her
listen. .  * ^  7
- "In good Volseni there Is watcb and

The' echoes of the blast rang for an
instant around the hills.
* ''And there is watch and ward and

heart monselgneur," she said.'
The sobs were still, laughter was
hushed, the echoes died away. In utter silence their hands and their eyes
met Only in their hearts love's clarion
rang indomitable and marvelously glad.

Not Sisters
Now and again you see two women pass-
ing down the street who look like sisters.
You are astonished to learn that they are
mother and daughter, and you realize that
a woman at forty or forty-6ve ought to be
at her finest and fairest. Why isn't it so?
The genera! health of woman is so intimately associated with the local health
of the essentially feminine organs that
there can be no red cheeks and round
form Where there is   female weakness.
Women  who   have   suffered   from
this   trouble   have   found   prompt
relief and cure  in the use of Dr.
Pierce's  Favorite   Prescription.     It  gives vigor  and vitality to   tbe
organs  of  womanhood.     It , clears   the   complexion,  brightens  tbe
eyes and reddens thc cheeks.
No alcohol, or habit-forming drugs is contained in "Favorite Prescription."
Any sick woman may consult  Dr. Pierce by letter, free.    Every letter is

OFTEN there nre clever,brains
about us of whose workings
we care nothing save so fnr as
they serve to the defter moving of our dishes or the more scientific
brushing and folding of our clothes.
Humorists and philosophers have described or conjectured or caricatured
the world of those who wait on us, in-
viting us to consider how we may appear to tbe inward gaze of the eyes
which are so obediently cast down before ours or so dutifully alert to anticipate our orders. As a rule, we decline
tho invitation. The task seems ot once
difficult and unnecessary. Enough to
remember that the owners of tbe eyes
have ears and mouths also! A small
leak left unstanched will empty the
largest cask at last It Is well to keep

and in affairs of public magnitude.
The king's body servant, Emlle Lepage, bad been set a-thlnklng. This
was the result of the various and profuse scoldings which he had undergone
for calling young Count Alexis "prince."
The king's brief, sharp words at the
conference had been elaborated Into a
reproof both longer aud sterner tlmn
his majesty wns wont to trouble, himself to administer. lie had been very
strong' on the utter" folly of putting
such ideas into the boy's head. Lepage
was pretty clear that thc idea had conic
from'the boy's head Into his, but In*
said nothing more of that. The hoy
himself scolded Lepage, first for having been'overheard, second, and, ns Lepage guessed, after being scolded himself very roundly, for using the offending title at nil.    Meekly Lepage i'n ire
_thls__cross_also. Indeed, with some,
amusement and a certain touch of pity
foj young Alexis, who was not a prince
and obviously could not make out why.
In the books a king's sons wcre.nlwnys
princes, even though there were, ax in
those glorious days there often were,
fifty or threescore of them.
Then Countess* Ellenburg scolded
him. The king's "It's absurd!" was
rankling sorely ln her.mind. Her scolding wns In her heaviest manner, very
religious. She called Ilonron to witness that never by word or deed had
sho done anything to give her boy such
a notion. Tho days nre gone by when
Heaven "makes overt present answer.
Nothing happened. She roundly charged Lepage with fostering tho idea for
his own purposes, He wanted to set
the Prlnco of Slnvnn ugnlnst his little
brother, she supposed, nud to curry favor with the rising sun nt tho poor
child's cost

The subject of irrigation, which also
Is placed under the superintendent of
Forestry, constitutes an . important
part of the report..
The importance of a proper hydraulic survey is dwelt upon. "The determination of the water supply Is of
the greatest Importance, not only to
the irrigation interests, but for the
municipal supply of the rapidly de-
eloping towns of the west, for the operation of railways and for the convenience of the growing, population. As
the administration of the water resources of this-great district Is under
the control of the Dominion the responsibility for .dealing with this subject rests upon the federal, author!-,

NEW YORK, June 28.—The New
York police confirmed last night the
new phase of the Slgel murder case
brought-to light in Newark," N.J. yesterday, that Leon Ling was In Newark early ln the afternoon of the day
of the murder with a heavy oval-
topped trunk on his hands, like the
one in which the body was found,
and a pressing anxiety to be rid of
it. It is ascertained that he attempted to leave the trunk in the Newark
restaurant. ofrLI Sing, but prudent Ll
Sing, would not hear of having the
trunk dumped on him.
James Halstead, the cabman employed by the%awrence Livery company of,Newark, N. J., who told the
police that he hauled a Chinaman
and a trunk from Ll Sing's restaurant
in New York to ■ a house on 8th avenue, presumably the place where Elsie Sigel's body was found was brought
to police headquarters. He looked at
the trunk in which the body was
found'and. it is understood that he
identified it as the one hehad hauled
although the police would not admit
this.    -°   \.     ,
■The mystery pt just how Elsie Sigel
was killed was cleared up to some extent with the announced results of the
coroner's autopsy, supported in a way
the theory that the murder. was not
premeditated, hut committed on the
spur of the moment by a jealously crazed Chinaman. O'Hanlon. of the coroner's office said there had been found
no ruptured blood vessels such as, always accompanied death by.violence
or strangulation, but on the contrary

of the contents of the stomachjs not

There is absolutely no confirmation
of the statement made to the, police
by a clerical friend' of the Slgel family that Elsie ever married Chu Gain,
nor Ling's rival, who is held under

The district attorney's office had On
Fung, an English speaking Chinese,

tongs and their possible affiliation

membership In the Chinese Masons--
which tho Masons deny—the only other society to which he belonged was
the Four Brothers, which embraces all
the descendants of tho four fabled
