After being twico adjourned, tlie
Supreme Court opned oeforo Hin Honor Judge Morrison on Tuesday morning. Thero was a large attendance «r
the bar and general public. Tho members"' of tho bar present were W. A.
MacDonald K.C., Vancouver; M. A. M-*.*:-
donald, Cranbrook; S. T. Taylor, JC. O .
Nelson; A. Johnson, Nolson; G. Thompson, Cranbrook; L. P. Eckstein, W. It
Ross, A. .1. Fisher'and H. Herchmer
of Fernie. G. II. McMullen was clerk
of the court, M. A. Kastner, deputy
sheriff and G. H. Playle stenographer.
The members of the grand jury wore
A. H. Cree, foreman, AV. A. Bleasdell,
A.' ,B. Trites, F. J. Johnson, "W. G.
Barclay, E. Wriglesworth, F. White,
John Barber, L. B. MacDonaJ(J,.N. E.
Suddaby, W. J. Blundell, H. W. Tren-
holm ana G. Quail. His lordship ln his
•charge to the grand jury said there
were two cases out of the five on the
list which were serious. The first one
was Rex vs. Lockhart. He said lt seemed that' Lockhart was secretary of the
relief fund, appointed on the 10th day
of August, and acted as so until Sept.
10th, when he resigned. During that
time he handled large sum of money.
Just previously to his resigning a request was made for some security, and
shortly afteT that he resigned, and a
successor took over, and that successor
states he received .$11000.00 odd, but
Lockhart said he received more. The
committee thought It advisable to audit
tho books, and get some expert people
to audit them ,and that expert reported
a shortage of $900. He was also charged on some ■ counter charges, charging
him was appropriating to himself specific amounts, one of $122.50, and another of $318. In these two charges
there appears to be some sort of evidence, and he did not think they would
have any trouble in arriving that there
was a prima facie case witli these. He
also spoke about the cases of Rex vs.
Jos. Rameira, charged)with intlmidat-
iorf, more commonly known as thc
Blackhand case.
Rex vs Petersen. Tills is a case where

shack on tlie pretence that he had some
washing—gave the woman liquor and
then  assaulted  her.
Rex vs Sacramota. The prisoner was a
ap charged with stabbing at Cranbrook
votes"an(l the othor case "was one of forgery,
viz. Rex vs Geo. Leach*.
After outlining their .duties to the
grand' jury they .retired and in about
an hour's time returned with true bills
against Rex vs. Lockhart, Rex, vs Jos.
Rameira, and Rex. vs Goo, Leach and no
bills against Petersen and Sacramota.
H, Herchmer acted as crown prosecutor. Tho flrstcase proceeded with was
that of Rex, vs. George Leach, charged
with forging the name of It. Sorchose
to .a cheque drawn by Mr. Henderson
onntha Homo Bank of Canada In favor
of Sorchose,' The first witness Called
was F. J. PhlncRon, Sworn, he said
ho, was teller at tho Homo bank and
had acted na such last December. Ilo
knew-the accused, Last December ho
camo Into tho hank and presented a
cheque for paymont. Ho Identified tho
choquo.produced as being tho ono, Ho
refused paymont of the choquo-. on Instructions from Mr. Henderson. Prln*
oner who noted aB his own counsol asked witness a few questions. lie asked
him If when lio prexontod llio cheque ho
did not toll him tho choquo wns not his,
but belonged lo a Chlmimnn at . tho
Cuthanks. Witness, Bftld lio romeni-
herod somothing to tills effect, Frluonor
also said that he salt! to witness that
he would bring tlio Chinaman along,
but ho would not como,
R, Sorchose, sworn, said ho did not
know accused. Tho cheque produced
was IiIb and payable to himself, A littlo wlillo after receiving tho cheque ho
lost It, lie then went to the bank and
Ktopped paymont. He did not wrlto IiIh
nnmo on tlio back its ho could not
wrlto, Ho did not authorlzo nnyono to
ensh It for lilm. ITo lost tlio clioquu al
about two or three o'clock on tho dny
ho received It, which wns nbout. Dcoom-
bor 4th.
Prisoner asked .the wltneFi-, when he
lost the cheque and ha replied that he
did not know.
Tho Judge"asked.witness if he received ^cheques from Mr.* Henderson oetore.
He replied yes. The-judge then asked
how he would endores them. Witness
answered that lie would go to the
bank and put his mark on.
Hong Sang, a Chinaman ,was next
sworn by holding a picco of paper and
burning It*. He could not speak any
English and an Interpreter was used.
Hong lived at Hosmer. He knew accused and recognized the cheque. He picked, it up In front of a machlno shop.
He,was coming down by Napanee hotel
when he saw accused and gave the
cheque to him. The endorsement was
not on when he picked It up. He remembered giving evidence .at the preliminary hearing. Ho picked the cheque
up two or three days before giving evidence at .that hearing. He gave the
cheque to accused to find out who the
owner was, but perhaps he did not understand him. nor did he. understand
what prisoner said to him. Prisoner
put several questions to the Chinaman
Robert N. Clerke sworn, said he ar
rested' the accused on a charge of for
gery. He cautioned him. After'caution-
lng him accused said he received
cheque from a Chinaman living at the
Cutbanks.
Robert N. Clerke, sworn, said he arrested the accused on a charge of for
gery. He cautioned him. After cautioning him accused said he received the
cheque from a Chinaman living at the
Cutbanks. He said he understood the
cheque belonged to the" Chinaman end
he wrote the name on the back for him.
This closed the case for.the crown:
Prisoner in his own defence was
sworn, and said he was entirely innocent of the charge. He signed the
cheque and took lt to the bank because
he knew the man. He had known, the
Chinaman,for many months. The Chinaman handed him the cheque and he did
not know what ho wanted.- The Chinaman took his finger and motioned that
HF"wan te"d'i tTsl gnea. Pri s o n or"sai"d"th"a t"
the Chinaman understood English. The
Chinaman sald^lt was his cheque, and
wanted prisoner to sign It for him. He
again reiterated that'-lie was entirely
innocent.    , . V-
Cross examined by H. Herchmer as
to whether lie did not know that Sor-
chese wns not a Chinese name, prisoner
said he did not give lt a. thought. Hnd
he done so he would probably not have
signed tho choquo'. Asked by a juryman why 'tlm Chinaman would not go
lo the bank with him" ho replied .that
the Chinaman would not go back with
him.
Tho Judgo .in summing up said that
if the Chinaman's story was correct,
which was most probable,'then there
was no doubt that tlin, prisoner was
guilty.
. Tho jury aftor retiring for about 20
minutes returned with ' a vordlct ot
guilty. Ho was sentenced.by tho judge
to seven months imprisonment from tho
tlmo ho was arrested, which was Doc,

TRAITORS IN THE UNION
A certain daily iri Sunny Alberta,
conspicuous for its advocacy of land
shark ethics in combination with evangelical piety, has been lending itself to
one or more individuals whose sole
aim and object, is to disrupt the miners' organization.'
A close study of a number of these
'letters of protest' by the constant repetition-of phrases, shows an intimate
relationship with a disgruntled aspirant to' legislative fame.
Past history has revealed the depths
'of doceil to which individuals can descend for the obtaining of material
gain, and from the time when Judas
brought real estate to the canonization (?) of Harry Orchard traitors have,
not been a scarce commodity.
Speaking of "St.' Orchard"    brings
to notice ihe famous trial of Haywood,
Mover and Pettibone, which apart from
the  tragedy  underlying,  brought    to
light some of the methods by which
."Brer  Capitalist"  manages    to    give
"Brer Labor" a jab on the solar plexus. .        ,
As ihe trial progressed we   learned.
1   about "Pinkertoii thugs" being engaged
for the express purpose of breaking up
' the Westenr Federation of Miners, and
Ihe average unionist   was   somewhat
" staggered when the cross-examination
showed the principal witnesses for the
prosecution     were    "staunch     union
men" holding responsible positions in
the W.  F.  .M. and SPIES. -
Now the tatics adopted by American
capitalists are not alone peculiar - to
United States; they are used, though
perhaps not so glaring, in this country
also.
■ The.- strikes  of  the  street railway
. men i'n Hamilton and Winnipeg      is
proof sufficient.
One glaring case was in Lethbridge,
Alta., where a "Thiol agent" performed an explosion stunt, tried io blow up
a "scab" house. The damage done was
trivial, but the moral effect hoped for
■ was that 'something*: called "Public
Opinion" might be brought to regard
*'   the miners as a lawless body of work-.
Are the men -whom you vote into
office so corrupt that you fear to
trust'them?
If so, why don't you - pass a law
making no public or elective offices at
all?'
. If public employment is such a bad
thing, so repugnant to human nature,
why don't you abolish government and
have anarchy at once?
Take your brains out and have them
examined and find'out what's the matter with you.
NANSEN A SOCIALIST
Xanseti, the famous Arctic explorer,
is a Socialist and carried his Socialism
toward thc North pole*On May Day,
Niuisos planted ' the red flag of brotherhood on the ice and delivered an
address on Industrial freedom the first
to expound the gospel of the New
Time in tlie Far North. A writer in
the Labor World of Oakland, Cal., describes the scene:'
"A-ship in the frozen sea of the Arctic region! Thousands of miles off
from (heir homes, the explorers were
caught- in the ice arid delivered to the
mercy of the ocean current, which
drove them to the North' Pole, ' Ihe
groat, unknown.
One day they planted a big pole on
the ice and hoisted an immense red
flag. In the super-zero weather they
formed a circle around one tall intelligent looking man, their leader, and he
spoke to them about the great futuro
that is promised to all mankind,"about
the comrades., in Norway, and their
struggle for national and industrial
freedom.
They did not work that day not more
than feeding their dogs an .extra holiday meal ancl sweeping the deck off
clean.
."All day long the red flag floated on
the feeble wind, blowing through the
icy regions pointing south to.all the
comrades, in all tlie world. This is the
way Comrade Narisen, the great Arctic
explorer, celebrated-May Day and kept
the international holiday even iri the
Farthest. North."

■ Every big industrial organization
employs secret agents. They are
sent into districts where there is some
' "Labor trouble," or what is better, aro
hired locally.
Theso human vermin are unknown
to each other,, or the corporations requiring r-their services, but they are
known to the Pinkerton (or Thiol) agency by a number; they send a daily
report to some arranged place and the
agencies in turn notify their clients.
Every prominent worker, in the union is markod, and details even of his
private lifo aro recorded and filed. Nothing transpires In the unions effected

THE HOBO
Sonic fifty years, ago there was not
a "hobo" in America. , Now they tell
us that there are fifty,thousand. Yes,
fifty thousand men who would rather
beg or steal a living than enter the
ranks of the wage earners.*
I am not including thc rich parasites, but just the plain, ordinary
"hobo" who comes begging a handout at the back door, year after year,
As the unemployed question becomes
more acute, as tho competition for
jobs Increases, hundreds are, added to
the ranks of this vast army,
And what is going to bo done about
It? Some people say that they aro a
lazy lot of worthless cads who would
not work If thoy woro glvon an opportunity,,
I admit that a groat many of them
aro of this stamp, but the quostion Is,
what has mado thom hobos? Thero
must bo same cause for thoso mon
taking to this roaming lifo which Is
flllod with many hardships and dangers,
It Is bocauso they were not. given an
opportunity lo onrn n decent living;
bocauso thoy woro llrod of uncertain
omploymont, which at. best only mount
starvation wages.        ''
No, those mon are not a worthless
Int. Tho day Is coining when those hoI-
dlors of fortune aro going to rise, and
bo rockonod wllh and that, day Ih coming hooii; when I hoy aro going tn join
hands with thoir own cIiibh.
For wo aro oomitiiloH, Don't, juilgu
thom loo hnrd, I'or noxt your, tho noxt,
mont li, perhaps tomorrow you mny bo
a hobo,
harvester and thresher.      And so we
might continue indefinitely.
It is estimated that one worker assisted with the modern means of production could produce one hundred
times as much as did our forefathers
\vtih their crude and their > simple
tools. ,
Though in those days he produced
far less with his simple tools he made
a wholesome living. Does the modern workers who produces many times
as much.receive a hundred times as
much as did his forefathers, or does he
have as good a living?
A cursory glance at present day
conditions gives us "Xo" for an answer. ( What Is the. renson for this
seeming contradiction? This we will
try to answer. ' ■<
Along with the appearance'of those
vast social tools has nppoared a- new
form of private property—namely, the
private ownership of Foclal needs. The
machines, railroads, tolographs, factories, so vitally necessary in modern
industrial society have tsjllen into the
hands of what' is called the capitalist
class, and it is for this reason that
every time a new labor saving machine
is invented that it acts us a boomerang
against the workers who invent and a
great'source of profits for the capitalists. -      .       "
This form of private ownership'is,a
monumental injustice and just as tlie
human body in order to continue existence must rid itself of its vermiform
appendix when it has lost its function
and" has reached a certain stage, so
must the capitalist class, the modern
vermiform' eppendix, of society be cut
off for it performs absolutely no useful function and its existence spells
danger to the well being of mankind.
The capitalist ownership is wrong.
We cannot return to the old form of
private'ownership as would some foolish reformers—it order to do this it
would be' necessary to tear up all railroads, pull down the telephone and the
telegraph wires, break all the machines
and go.back. to.the-days , of stage
coaches.*

and most logical remedy, namely that
progress continue, that, railroads arid
machines be still further improved but
that their private ownership be substituted,with collective ownership, that
they be deiriocratically managed ancl
that the producers shall receive the
full social value, of their labor.
What" sonslble objection can you offer to this program?
millions    of workers to curtail thei
use of luxuries, comforts and necess
ties. This they will undoubtedly do i:i
the next few years.     That they wi

A clipping from the Brandon -Sun

Voi- the -first time in tlie history of
Brandon the citizens were last night
given an opportunity of hcai-ln? as a
community, grand opera of-'the highest
calibre; when Mr.G.'S. Starling presented the Boston Grand Opera Company in Verdi's world famous "II TYo-
vatore."
In the first instance let It'be said
that the performance was brilliant in
its success. No finer-or more pleasing Introduction into tlie beauties of the
reat Italian-operas could have, been imagined than the-performance given' at
the auditorium. . The audience was
literally carried away and its approbation was expressed with a, lavlshness
that knew no bounds. Madame Francinl

be presented in,, Fernie opera house
next Wednesday night, - the' Calgary
Herald has tho following notice:
The Boston Grand Opera' company
inaugurated a short season of grand
opera at the-Lyric theatre last night
before a highly pleasedand enthusiastic audience-. The one selected for
the initial performance was Verdi's
famous masterpiece "II Trovatore," an
opera which Ts liberally enriched with
'delightful melodies, the last act of
which, In patricular, may successfully
challenge comparison , in point • of
beauty, variety and dramatic- effect
with any other, opera in the purely
Itaiia"n—schW)i"Tile"'clIMW^f~trl<5_miF
sic, much of it so widely and intimately known, was increased, last night by
its rendition in English, IMme. Fran-
cini being the only singer who retained
I lie,Kalian. Tlie excellence of the performance will not readily be forgotten.
The organization scored an unqualified success from an artistic point' of
view, One is not often privileged to
listen to a cast of such unusual brilliancy, supported by a chorus of more
than average merit. High praise
must deservedly be given for the admirable arrangement of the staging.
The orchestra is a very capable assemblage of musicians, who entered
into the spirit of the music with artistic appreciation In the matter of its
interpretation. The company is an
excellent one throughout especially as
regards tho principals. Mme. Judith
Franclnl, In the role of Leonora, sang
wltli a depth of feeling that showed
tho rich' ancl beautiful quality of her
mezzo-soprani volco, Sho was loudly
applauded for onch number, but the climax was reached In the last act In tho
recltatlvo and aria and In tlio omot*
lonal duets with Manrlco (tenor) and
Count dl Luna (barltono.) ■ Tho aud*
ionco was prnctlcally captivated with
hor duets with Mnnrlco during her
fnrowoll diiols with Manrlco during
hor farowoll visit to her lover's prison. Slgnora Groca illccl, In tho part, nf

"No man will build a' boat to sail

willing to give the Americans the advantage of their "own universal    rule
under which they have had experience
in building and sailing and I am ready j
to challenge thereunder, but I will not |

Frank Sherman has given th'e best of his ability, the
best of his life, to the cause of labor, and principally to the cause of the miners, and through his efforts many changes for the better have been made
during the term of his office. ..
THE NEW PRESIDENT
KNOWLEDGE IS POWER
"Wanted :A night school and Mining Classes in
Fernie aiid District.
Governments give large grants, millionaires
build ami endow colleges and universities in order
to educate the sons and daughters of the well to
do class. But when it comes to educating the sons
and daughters of thc working class, the village
school with its poorly'paid teacher and its skinflint tax-raising trustees, is generally the lot of the
poor man's child.
Few can tell and nono can estimate the self sacrificing efforts of the parents of the poor man'.s
child in, order that Johnny or Mary may get an cd-
■ucation. Many a poor mother has denied herself
to that end, and it is gratifying to know'that in
many instances such efforts have been crowned
with success. In-Fernie.and district we have a
large and growing mining population, and the facilities for acquiring technical knowledge of mm-
.ing outside thc daily toil of the miners are-almost
nil,., What we require for our aspiring youth is
a series of classes in charge of a competent author-
' ity on mining, who should be able to give lectures
<■ on mining and kindred subjects during the long
winter months.
Our coal fields are fiery and dangerous,   and
the men whose lot it is to face these dangers   iri'
order to earn their daily bread cannot get   too
,much knowledge of Dame Nature and how to meet
her unyielding laws.
Could not the department of Education at Vic:
toria and Edmonton be stirred up to take some
action in providing more educational facilities for
the lad that toils.   •
In due course the. members of District 18 U. M.
\V. of A. will be called upon to exercise their
constitutional right in the election of one of their
number, to act as president, in the vacancy caused
by the retirement of President Frank Sherman.
The Miners' organization is essentially democratic, and the office of president is open to competition to all alike. ' Great care should be taken
in the selection of this man, and the members ought
to think carefully and well before committing
themselves in the disposal of the highest gift' in
their power.
District 18 covers a wide field, embracing many
men of nianv different beliefs, and holding many
varying conceptions of the most successful ways
and means of administration—all of them possessing merit in greater or lesser degree;
The President should therefore be a broadmmd-
cd man, yet not so much so that he will ever loose
sight of .District 18, which must, always remain
large on his mental horizon. He must possess administrative abilities, for he' has to cope with men
trained in* the arts of craft and industrial trickery.
The future has in store for district 18 strenuous'
times, the ever-encroaching attitude of the operators proving this beyond doubt.. Our new leader
must be a man of stamina and courage, preferring
peace' to strife, but not peace at any price, and
ready when the time comes, to call out the dogs of
war and fight—fight to a finish for a fair deal for
the mine, workers
No District can possess many such men—labor
leaders are few—but there are men in District 18
with thes6 qualifications, though undoubtedly they
are few in number.' ' It is up to the membership
to think it" over well,—weight your man; - size up
his abilities; if he squares up well with your ideals
vote for him—and,last,"but not least, if you' elect
him, see to it that you back him up after.
Don't forget to prepare for 1st of
July sports. The Athletlc,Assoclatlori
are sparing neither time nor money to
make It.a success.
"Progressive Fernie5* will be issued
on or about August lst,It will contain
over 100 pages of profusely Illustrated
information about-public life* in ^this
thriving city.! Advance orders should
be placed at once. Price within reach
of all, 60c; Appiy Ledger Office. ,..
A Detroit printing office,', says the
Printer and Publisher, has the foi-
lowing notice posted up reguarly at
this time every ..year: "All requests
for leave of absence on account of
toothache, severe colds and minor ailments and on account of funerals, or
church socials and so forth must be

A PEW STRAY THOUGHTS
THE PRESIDENT'S RESIGNATION
"While Prank Sherman held the position of President of this district, it was a vory hard matter
for the editor of this paper to ever express . his
public opinion of Sherman, Init^iow that Prank
Sherman', through continued illness, has been compelled to step down and out from the highest position that the members of District 18,'could give him,
we can say what before would have been put down
as "paid matter. "        ...      • .   ,
, in a district such as this it is an impossibility
for any oneman to please and satisfy every one of
the si.x thousand members, hut Frank Sherman has
always done what he thought wns best for the common cause and good of the men he represented.
■ He has been misunderstood on several occasions,
and mostly by men thnt should have been his
strongest supporters, but he lias always done what
lie thought wns honest and right.'
Insinuations to no end liave from time to lime
been hurled,al him, when ho was working over
zealously for the ciuino, and yet he toiled faithfully
on, knowing in his own heart that he was true.
Enemies have sprung from ovory corner to try
and thwart his plans and ideas, but on most occasions he has held on straight and true, until now,
worn to a thread by the ever pressing demands of
friends unci enomies alike, ho has boon forced to n
sick bed, and finally hns hnd to throw down   the
, The time table at present in vogue on the G.
N". railway, militates against the growth of Fernie
as a market-town for the many towns to the wesi;
of us on that line. The train arrives here about
eleven" in the morning, and leaves again ' about
one in the afternoon'. This city is naturally the
market centre for many of these smaller places, and
the city officials should see to it that nothing is
allowed to stand in the way of our growth as a
disributing centre. Passengers from the G-. N.
cannot get down town much before 11.30, and to
catch the train must leave thc business portion
before one o'clock. If they put up for dinner, as
most of them do, what time have they to „trade
with Fernie merchants? Mr. Board of Trade,
what thinkest?
A few years ngo thc grent rush wns from the
east to the.northwest to take up land nnd fnrm.
Now tiie rush seems to bo to get to Vancouver and
open up a real estate office.

No.   5 mine on'1 Friday morning dlsor-
, ganized  the  regular working  of    the
mine.
Bill Alexander Has resigned his post
'    as outside superintendent and finished
on Thursday last week.' Bob Johnston
and a helper are attending to the work.
Friends  of  Mrs.   Jim  Bushell,    who
. has been vory sick will welcome    the
news that sho Is now recovering.
A woman^belonging to West Ferule
has Durham Jack Smith to thank for
rescuing her from a perilous position ln
the Elk at Fernie-during the recent
heavy floods ;
.Born: On Friday Juno, Ilth, to Mr.
and Mrs.  Billy Bell, a daughter.
Dan Stewart was connected with this
camp for about 11 years, .for many of
which he was foreman of the carpenter.*-
and car repairers. Sometime .ago In
these columns wo reported that his
health was tn a bad state'. He has continued since to get gradually worse, anil
on Friday he left here for Arnprlor,
Ont., where some- of his brothers are.
• He has always been known us a conscientious and fair dealing boss and It
Is gratifying to know that an effort to
■* cheer him In his adversity has already
taken .tangible "form.    .'* '7
Sam Fisher, teamster for Trites-Wood

The Coal Creek branch of the S.P.C.
put on an intellectual feast at the club
■ hall -on Tuesday night when Comrades
Lester and his wife    from Manchester,
'.. England, were the speakers. The audience, whicli was sprinkled with many
of the gentler sex, was mostehthuslas-
"'tlc, if not"large.   Comrade'Jack Smith
presided, and to wile away time in ex-
.pectation of late comers, Comrade Lester  - gave" two    humorous'   recitations
. .which went down In fine' style.* ,Mrs.
Lester in a short and lucid address placed' prominently   before   us   the     rapid
strides that woman  has  made in    hor
advancement In the industrial    world.
She pointed out the evils of the capltal-
—ist'sy"st"em_wh"iclrnia^n-orcM'wom"annrn"
to' the   Industrial   world.       She-urged
; her sisters in ,Coal Creek to come out

.   emancipate them -from -the- awful- stigma^ of   bearing   children   to   supply   a
mb're' necessity for "Ttfelplng along  the
Capitalist's" profit making   machinery.
Comrade .Lester-', spoke for almost    an
hour on The Coming Change.'    He com
.   monccd a long way back and'gradually
worked up to the present age, showing
right along tha * many* ,phases.,pr ' the
question.   The speaker displayed   .the
happy knack of convorting'obscurlty Into a real living fact by putltng ln    a
good  story-to .Illustrate  any  difficult

told the writer that one ofi thc most
interesting features of Fernie's big
celebration on Dominion day would be
the rollicking and humorous recitation
entitled "If I should die to'-riight," by
P. O.  B."
. Every knock's a boost; keep* on'with
knocking; tho harder you knock a man
down  the higher he .will bounce.
Death on wires, a noted Waldo character,'tells us that Kra**- is in line with
Spokane. An expert lady barber for the
regulation price will prune your soup
strainers, and block them out in ' any
pattern, lip tickler, fantalls, Billygoat
or peacherinos. Haircuts df all kinds,
from a woolly Willie to a ring around
a rosey and your cars washed without
extra charge.

when be came In to lunch. He knew
the accused from the 28th of May, and
he received the letter on the 29th. He
also saw'the accused on the following
Monday morning and spoke to him for
about ten minutes. He asked accused if
he was. going to work at tbe mines,
but he said no, that ho was going to
work at Jaffray.
Cross examined: What other letters
did you receive. He said he received
a lot of businoss letters and one from
the' old country. ' He opened some of
tbe business letters. He'was also nsked for a description of thc letter from
the old country which he gave. He saw
accused on Friday and he thought once
on Saturday and once on Monthly but
not on the Sunday. He saw him at
G.30 a.m.  on the Monday morning.
Fred Murray, sworn, said he was
running the Roma hotel. -■ He first-saw
the accused on the 30th of May. He
next saw accused coming In to breakfast next morning at 7.30. The word
Fernie was not on tbe register when
the prisoner signed. lie was asked a
few questions by Mr. Fisher for the defence.
Al Rizzuto was the next person sworn.
He said he knew the accused. He received a letter from his brother as he
was going into lunch one day. Ho was
asked for a description of the envelope
and letter and identified thc envlope
and letter produced as the ones he received. Tho letter stated Dear Friend;:
If you wish to live happy place $200 in
an envelope in "the 2nd water closet.
Otherwise he would have hs hotel burned and he would be killed. As a result of the letter he went and reported
It to the police and started, to look out
for suspicious parties. Next .morning
ho went over to the Roma hotel and
looked at the register, where he saw
a,name written in ink. He pulled out
his letter and he thought he could recognize his writing. He wenf to the
chief and gave instructions. As a
result the prisoner was called up to
the counter by the chief. The chief
spoke to him in English but he, did not
seem lo understand him and then he,
(Rlzzuto) spoke to him. The judge .asked Al if the accused appeared to understand the English that the chief spoke
to.him, and he said yes. > The* chief
asked accused if that was his name on
the register and he replied yes. He was
then asked to write Fernie City; when
he started to write It his hand trembled, and he (Rlzzuto) told him hot to
fear. Aftor writing the,chief arres't-
ed him and searched hiin." _^ Cr.oss_lex-.
amined: He lived at Victora avenue, but
went to the Imperial very often to see
how things wero going on.- He hadne-
ver seen the accused until the Monday
morning he was arrested, which.was a
little after 7 o'clock,
- George Burroughs sworn, said he was
chief of police for Fernio in May, and
arrested accused on .Monday the'31st.
He was sitting in a chair at tho offico
and I asked him his name. ' He came
toward the counter and I asked him
h"ow ho spelled his name, hut he did
not seem to undorstand. .1 then asked
him to write Fernie. After writing I
arrested him and cautioned him. Aftor
that I obtained a search warrant to
search tho shack of Frank SIrrano, I
found there 2 grips, 1 large one and 1
small ono, In tho grip I found clothes
a piece of brown paper, tho paper was
produced ancl a pass book and other

FOOTII.VI.I.
Three more games were played- in
the Crow's Nest League on Saturday
last, and the results were in accordance with general expectations. Fernie
overcame Hosmer rather easily, the.final score being 5 goals to 0 in their
favor. ,   Michel defeated Bellevue,.the
., score Being 3 goals to 0. The peculiar
feature of this game was that the entire 3 goals were scored in the last 15
minutes. Up till that time the game
was fairly even although Michel had
a slight advantage in general play. A
high wind arose in thc middle of the
second half, and this was a factor in
enabling Michel to score their three
goals.* ' .
Frank and Coal Creek divided   the
- points, no goals being scored. It seems
.Hint goals are.a hard thing to get. at
Frank, as none have been scored there
this season. This result is a repetition of the^game a week ago with Fornie, thai game also ending in a goalless draw.. This is significant', considering the fact that Fernie and Coal
Creok meet today al Fornie. .The position of tho different clubs on the
league table is given below:    ,   ■

HOSMER 0;  FERNIE 5.
This game was played at Hosmer,
and resulted in an easy win for Fernie.
Right from Ihe start Fernie took the'
gamo in hand, and with the exception
of an occasional break away by the
Hosmer forwards they maintained a
continuous pressure.
Hary Hudson kept, a fine goal for
Hosmer and for tho greater part of the
first half defied tho best efforts of thc
* Fernie side to score. It was close on
7-alf time ere he was beaten and then
the shot was of thc unsaveable order,
Jack McBwing, who was playing right
half time ere ho was beaten and then
and running right, inside the penalty
line drove tho ball hard into the far
corner of the  goal out. of Hudson's
reaciu Tins was aTi^ivtrTccrrirrg-in-
the first half, and the teams crossed
over with Fernie leading by one goal
to nothing,
One of the Hosmer players was or-
• dered off the field during the progress
of the first half for jumping at. an opponent; he had previously been can-
.tioued by the referee'. „
The second half was largely a repetition of the first, Fernie continuing
the pressure, in fact'so one sided was
tho game that Ramsay and Bowliill,
the Fernio backs, were seen playing
up with the forwards and had an occasional shot at goal. Davie, Smith and
Klnnear added goals this half. IIoRnier
players began to mix things a hil,
and as a result the rough element entered Into the game and fouls wero of
frequent occurrc'iicc*. Towards (he
close lho roforoo ordered the Fernie
centre hair off the field for llircnlenlng
to strike an opponent. Thin was an
unfoi'liinntn Incident: ns Kliineiir lind

Kldenible provocation, ' .Willi nil due

fact one of thc bost In tlio country, we

lltihiiii'i' will lmvo to Improve; thoy
need new talent, as two successive defeats on their own ground 'portrays
something radically wrong with the
side as at present constituted.
FRANK 0, COAL CREEK 0.
This was tho final result in a hard
and well contested game played at
Frank on Saturday, .Tune 12th, Frank
team was strengthened by the inclusion of Tommy Chambers, late of Michel, while Coal Creek were short of
Johnston and Thornton. The opening stages of the game favored Frank
who had the hill in their favor, but
Coal Creek soon settled down and the
ground was closely contested. The
defence on both sides was strong and
prevented the opposing forwards from
becoming dangcrou**. Chances to
score were few, Chambers of Frank
having the only goaj try of the first,
half, but. his shot, went, over thc bar.
Hard play ensued up to the interval,
when neither side had scored. .
Coal Crook opened strongly in the
second half, their left wing made good
progress.and from a fine run the ball
wns sent across hut, the other forwards
failed to tnke advantage and a good
chanco was lost. Chambers and Hutton on the Frank left from whom
great things were expected, were well
held by Swecnie and Allan, and only
on one occasion were thoy really dangerous, ,but Chambers shot over from
a good position. McGechie was playing
x hard game against his old club, and
easily accounted for the right wing
opposed to him. The ground troubled
(he visitors considerably, and they
failed to control the ball, many well
intentioned passes going astray. The
game was fairly even throughout.
Join'son on one occasion .might have
scored for Coal Creek, but one of his
own side got in the way of ihe ball,
which was beating Adamson all the
v.ay. Both sides '.rled" hard f»* a
gonl which would probably have .been
the whining of the gamo, but the end
camo without either* side having scored. Final result Frank 0, Conl Creek 0.
Mr. McLean of Coleman.acted as
referee and he handled the game in an
able manner, his decisions being unquestioned. The league games for
to-day are;      • •       ■     ■
Fernie vs. Coal Creek at Fernio.
Frank vs. Hosmer at Frank."
—--T-he-ganie-betAveeii—GoaLGi^el^aiiiL
Fernio will be the tit-bit of the season
at this end of the district. Botli sides
are determined to win and no effort
will be spared to attain thnt end. The
teams are evenly matched. The first
game between them ended in a draw,
and both clubs had the snmo result in
their visit to Frank.
Moth sides are strong in defence,but
Coal Creek has a slight, advantage forward. Tho result will he close nnd
I would not be surprised shoi Id it. end
In unotl-er d"aw
Frank ought to gain the points from
Hosmer.

On Tuesday night the Fernie Juniors played a game with a picked team.
The juniors outplayed their opponents
at every stage of the game. Giddings
for the juniors played a fine game,—
throwing some curves over the pan
that would keep Doc Wriglesworth
worried. Young llovan of the picked
ttam baited like Tom Whelan and had
tlie crowd with him all 'the time.' A
corpulent gentleman named Dean umpired the game and ftooY Brown of
Coal Co. fame started to keep score,
but on giving, the juniors , a wrong
count, young Giddings (Con Whelan,
some fans called him) lit into Brown
and put his Sunday hat out of commission. Brown pleaded a pressing
engagement and got away safely. Tho

JAMES'MURDER
WINNIPEG, Man. June 15—Chas.
F. 'Ho'rnfeck, of Oak Bluff,' is under,
arrest charged "with the murder'of Mrs.
Louis Epeal James on afternoon of
April 22 last at her home on Dominion
street, Winnipeg.- The prisoner was
brought to the city last evening by the
provincial , police and is being, held
pending his examination whicli will
be held at once. -,      *
It is understood that the crown has
a strong case against him. The suspect is, a farm laborer.
This arrest follows a long term of
uphill work by the-city, and provincial
police, who have been found in. innumerable blind trails.' A month.ago
it, was first learned that Hornfeck
might Jtnow more of the murder than
he was'given credit fov, and he was
questioned but his answers were such
that no charge was laid against him at
that time.

To the Editor of the Ledger:
Denr Sir: I notice with considerable
satisfaction the effort you are making;
in common with the board of trade, to
"boost Fernie," to draw attention to
the fact that we are a live city, with
a livelier future:
The Board pf Trade shows signs of
life, and a sincere desire to do something tangible for Fernie. , The trouble seems to be how and where to begin. Every citizen would like to
see Fernie an industrial centre, as well
as being a coal and lumber metropolis,
but how can this be -accomplished?
What have other places done that
have succeeded ? '",
From observation and travel I would
suggest that, several things are necessary in the way of "development" work
before Fernie is ready to hang up the
sign to come on and do business in
our midst. Ontario makes the boast
that, she is the "workshop of,Canada,"
that is, that in the cities of that province are produced the machines for
western use, not only machinery,' but
other lines well known and numerous.
In some of the most successful centres there, manufacturing sites are always "kept in stock,"'tliat is, either
the board of trade or the publicity committee,' or manufacturers committee of
the city council, have a line on locations for factories or mills that from

Co|tyright.i905.Anthouy Hope Hawkins
round me inner court of the castle. Tbe
whole was solidly built-of gray stone—
a businesslike old bill fortress, strong
by reason of its massive masonry and
of the position in which It stood. Considered as a modern residence it had to
be treated humorously, so Mas declared, and found much pleasure in It from
that point of view. The prince, always
Indifferent to physical comfort and ever
averse from luxury, probably did not
realize how much his ancestral stronghold demanded of his guests' indulgence. Old Vasslp, Peter's father, was
major domo—always in his sheepskin
coat and high boots. His old wife was
■cook. Half a dozen servants completed
tbe-establishment, nnd of. these three
were grooms. The horses,' in fact,
seemed to Max the only creatures
whose comfort were nt all on a modern
footing. But the prince wns entirely
satisfied nnd never so happy anywhere
as at Praslok. He loved the simple,
hardy life, lie loved even more, though
perhaps loss consciously, the sense of
being ainong friends. He would not
yield an inch to court popularity in
Slavna. but his heart went out to meet
tbe unsought devotion of Volsenl, the
.mountain town,. and its surrounding
villages. Distant and self restrained in
Slavna. here he was open, gay and full
of an almost boyish ardor.
. "It's worth coming here just to see
its effect on you," Max told him as the
two rode back together from Volsenl
on the day of-Sophy's arrival. They
had been at work, and the recruiting
promised well. ,,
The-prince-laughed gayly. "Coming
here from Slavna is like fresh air after
an oven," he'said. "No need to watch
your tongue or other people's! You can
laugh when -you like and frown when
you like without a dozen people asking
what's your motive for doing it."
"But really you shouldn't have chosen a diplomatist for your companion,
8ir, if you feel like that'."
"I haven't," he smiled.   "I've left the**
..diplomatist down  there and  brought
tbe soldier, up. And now that the ladies
tire coming"—
. "Ah, now we must watch our tongues
a little bit! Mme. Zerkovitch. is very
pretty, and the baroness might make
me absolutely poellcal!"
-—-Least"-jjryjng of men, yet Max von
Hollbrandt could not resist, sending
with this speech a glance at his companion."-The visit of. the baroness com-'
pelled this much tribute to. curiosity -
But the prince's lace was a picture.of
unembarrassed pleasure. ■

etlcal!" he cried merrily. "In tbe intervals of drilling bo it understood!" he
added, with-a laugh."'
Into this, atmosphere, physical and
moral—tbe exhilaration of keen mountain breezes, the brightness of a winter sun, tbe play of high hopes and of
high spirit—came Sophy, with all her
power of enjoying and her ardor in imagining. Her mind leaped from tbe sad
embraces of tho past to fly to the arms
of the present, to beckon gladly to the
future. No more than this had yet
emerged tnto consciousness. She was
not yet asking how for good or evil she
stood or was to stand toward the
prince, Fortune had done wonderful
things for her and was doing more yet.
That wns enough, and beyond that for
the moment she was not driven.
The mixture of poetry and drilling
suited her to perfection. She got both
when she rode over to Volsenl with
tho prince. Crisp snow covered tho
ground and covered, too, tho roofs of
tho old gray, hillBld© city—long, sloping roofs, with here and thoro a round
towor with a snow clad extinguisher
atop. Tho town was no moro than ono
long street, which bayed out at tho
farther ond Into ri mnrkot placo, It
stood with Its back against a mountain
side, defended on tho other throo sides
by a sturdy wall, which only now, aft:
or llvo centuries, began to crumblo

."Make tne ' lady of our., company,

"Make her a lieutenant of our artll*
lory." '     ; -     ;   -
'Sophy laughed gayly.
"I "have his  majesty's authority to
choose my  officers,", said the prince,
smiling.   ."Baroness, will you be a lieutenant  and   wear  our  sheepskins  in
place of your sables there?"
'   "It is your uniform, monselgneur,"
Sophy answered,-bowing her head.    ,
Lukovitch sprang forward and kissed
her hn*a,d.
"For our bailiffs preserver as for our
bailiff, meu of Volseni!" he cried loudly. The answering cheer brought tears
to Sophy's sparking eyes. For a moment sbe could not see ber prince nor
tbe men who thus took her to their
hearts..
Suddenly In tbe midst of her exultation she saw n face on the outskirts of
the   throng.    A   small,
spare man stood there,
dressed   in   unobtrusive
tweeds, but making no
effort to conceal himself.
He was just looking on.
a stranger to the town.
Interested in the picturesque little scene.   Tho
face was that of Lieutenant Rastatz.
; She watched the drilling of tho gunners and
then rode back with the
prince, escorted beyond
the gates by a cheering
throng, which had now
boon   joined   by   many
women.   Dusk was falling, and the old
gray city took on-a ghostly look.   The
glory  of the  sunshine  had  departed.
Sophy ■ shivered   a   little  beneath   ber
furs.
"Monselgneur. did you see Rastatz?"
sho asked.'
"No; I didn't see him, but I knew he
was here     Lukovitch told me yesterday."
"And not in-uniform!"
"He bas leave, no,doubt, and his uni-
i form  wouldn't make his stay, in Volsenl any more, pleasaut."
"What's he'there for?", she asked,
fretfully.- .-.,-" ■  *      ■
"Ah. baroness, you must inquire of
those who sent him, I think." Ills toiw
was light and merry.
"To"spy on you.* I suppose! I hate
his being there. E-Ie-rhe isn't worthy
to be in dear Volseni."
"You and Volsenl have fallen in love
with each other, I see! As for spying,
■tiii"rm~doing"I'd"o~op"eniy"'andTill"'r"s-nali*
do. but I don't blame Stenovics for
keeping an eye on me, or Stafnitz either. I do my best to keep an eye'on
them, you know. We needn't be afraid
of Rastatz, we who have beaten Hercules Mistiteh in open fight!"       ■ '
"Oh. well, away with him!" cried Sophy. "Tbe snow's not frozen—shall we
canter home, monselgneur?"
' Merrily they cantered through the
fast falling evening side by side. Rastatz was out of mind flow. All was
out of mind save the fascination of the
crisp air, the silent suggestion of gathering night, her prince who rode beside
her. Tho dark mass of the tower of
Praslok rose too soon before her unwilling eyes.   Sho drew reign, sighing,'
"If life wero just all that and nothing
else!" sho said, as he helped her to dismount and tho grooms took thc horses.
Sho stopped halfway np tho steep wooden causeway and turned to look back
toward Volsenl.' The prlnco stood closo
by her.
"That's, good, but lifo has better
things," ho Bald softly. . '"To ride together Is good and to play together, but
to worlc together is bottor still, baroness,"

time was short! That was tlie rating
thought- and the governing fact It
might be very short, and the eud might
come.without warning. The secret was
well kept, but to those to whom ho
spoke at all Natcheff spoke openly.
The king's life hung on a thread, which
the least accident might break. With
perfect quiet and tranquillity he might
live a year, possibly two years. Any
shock or overstrain would precipitate
the end.o Countess Ellenburg and her
confidential friends knew this, the king
knew it himself, and Lepage, his valet,
knew it. There the possession of the
secret stopped. •   ,
The king was gay and courageous.
Courage, at least, he had never lacked.
He seemed almost indifferent The best
years were over, ■ he said, and why not
an end? An end swift without pain,
without waiting! There was much to
be said for lt Lepage agreed with his
master and told him so In his usual
blunt fashion. They; agreed together
not to cry about tt, and the king went
. fishing still. E.ut the time was short,
and* he pushed on his one great idea
with a zeal nnd an earnestness foreign
to his earlier habit ne would see his
son married or at least betrothed before he died. He would see the great
marriage in train, the marriage which
was to establish forever the rank and
prestige of the house of Stefanovitch.
Tbe Prince of Slavna must set forth ou
his travels, seeking n wife. The'' king
even designated a princess of most unquestionable exnltednoss as the first
object of his sou's attentions or pursuit With nn unusual pcremptoriiu'ss
and nn unusual Independence he sent
Stenovics orders to communicate his
wishes directly to the prince. Stenovics
received the royal memorandum on tho
day on which Lieutenant l.nstntz returned to Sin vim with the friilts of his
observation iit Volsenl in his hand
At first sl-iht the king's eominnndg
were totally at variance with tlie interests of a the Ellenburg rcoterle and
with tho progress of their-great plan.
Tbey did not want the house of Stefanovitch, strengthened and glorified iu tho
l>erson of Its present heir apparent
But the matter was more complicated
than a first glance showed. There were
the guns to be considered as well and
the gunners training at Volseni.' Thoso
would be sources of strength and prestige to the prince, nol less valuable,
more tangible, than even a great iiuitfh.
And now the prince was on the'--put.
Send him on his travels'. The time •".-•.is
short. When the short time eiidc.! lie.
might be far away Finally he illicit
go and yet take iiDthiu^ by his journey. The exalted princess would lie
hard' to win. The k'ng's family pride
might defeat itself by making Iiim
pitch his hopes aud his claims too high.
On tbe whole, the matter was difficult. The three chief conspirators
showed their conviction of this in their
characteristic ways. Countess Fllen-
burg became- more pious than ever;
General Stenovics more silent, at li'lt^t
more prone to restrict his ennversailoi.

Df. Pierce's Favorite Prescription
Is the best of alt medicines for the cure of diseases,
disorders and weaknesses peculiar to women. -It is the
ooly preparation of its kind devised by a regularly graduated physician—an experienced and skilled specialist in
the diseases of women.     '
It is a safe medicine in any condition of the system.
THE ONE REMEDY which contains no alcohol
and no injurious habit-forming drugs and which
creates no craving for such stimulants.
THE ONE REMEDY so good that iu makers
ore not afraid to print its every ingredient on
"each outside- bottle-wrapper and attest to the
truthfulness of  the   some under oath.
It is sold by medicine dealers everywhere, and any dealer who hasn't it can
get it. Don't take a substitute ol unknown composition for this medicine of
known composition. No counterfeit is as good as the genuine and the druggist
, who says something else is "just as good as Dr. Pierce's" is either mistaken
or is trying to deceive you for his own selfish benefit. Such a man is not to be
trusted.^ He is trifling with your most priceless possession—your health—
may be \our life itself.    See that you get, what you ask for.

other ground for refusal? if it did It
was one whleh to the king's mind
