FERNIE,   B.C.,    June 12th, 1909
Black Hand Case Occupies
More Than Local Attention—Result is
Now Awaited
As announced in last week's Ledger, the alleged Blackhand' Raniera,
was captured, at Elko and brought to
Fernie, where he Is now under lock
and key.• -
The officers had wired to every possible opening to be on the lookout for
the man, and the nature of the country is such that escape seemed almost
impossible at any opening where1 lie
would have access to*the railroad.-
■ On Saturday, or about four days after he escaped from the provincial police offices In* this city, Station Agent
Austin of Elko noticed a man in the
yard who answered the description of
Raniera. He'at once informed.Constable Gook, who went after him and
overtook him. „ .,
Raniera made no effort --to, escape
' by flight, he/; probably thinking that
such a course-would immediately spot
him as the man wanted. - Constable
Good inquired the man's name, , and
was given a fictitious Italian name.
. Raniera volunteered the further information that he, was a carpenter * by
trade and was looking for .work. He
also,, inquired of the constable if   he
'could give him a job. J
The constable assured the man that
he had a job that would just suit him,
-and.-so the pair started off and'*the
copper was not slow in heading his
man to the. garrison,' where he was
made secure. ' .
When leaving Fernie Raniera had
nothing with him in the way of provls-
supplies' that would stand him.for a
week or more". : Where he got these
is the question that puzzles many of
the authorities. It is apparent that
he-'must havebeen-alded by his pals
but "'just when or how Is the mystery.
', When ho was brought back to the
Fernie jail he was searched and on
his person was found some' considerable sum .of money.
Ranoira was brought up for preliminary hearing before Magistrate Whimster on Friday. Evidence was submitted which'his worship, considered
to be strong enough lo warrant sending him up for trial al the assizes.
Ho is now In tho provincial jail,

The flood on the'Elk is now a thing
of the past; the cold nights being re:
sponsible* for the falling off of the feeders, and a consequent decrease' in. the
volume of the rivor itself.
Fortunatey little damage was done
in or around Fernie, although at one
time it was feared that a continuance
of. the high water would mean considerable loss to many.    .'"■■.
.West Fernie is. essentially a section
of the city where the houses.are owned to a great extent by the men who
live in them, not.only the employees of
the big Elk (Lumber company, but a
number of miners ha\*e;purchasod lots
and—built— for— themselves—comfortable,
homes in that part. ,' Both of these
classes are steady working people, at
good wages. The ground In West
Fernie is also wonderfully productive.
The result Is that there.are-a -largo
number of homes, well built and surrounded by splendid gardens.
Tho city council should take steps to
follow up the Improvement work now
being done by the residents, and see to
it that roads nnd walks are' built, as
soon as possible, .,No doubt with
a better approach from the city, West
Fernie would soon become more popular than ever us a residential section.
.All along the M. F, & M. road from
Fernie to Coal Creek, the valloy below
shows Btgns. of recent, high water.
Miners say that one of the most, rapid decreases in high water was mado
this year in Coal Creok, lho wator falling one day between morning ond noon
almost n foot,

by the flood and is causing some little

Reports from sovornl points In this
section of tho province, on tho Elk and
other streams all mention the high water following llio hot weather of last
wook. Sovornl drowning nccldontii
woro recorded, the majority of them
being lumbor men.
.. Through the courtesy   of   General-
Manager   Hurd,   a couple of Ledger
worthies were allowed to inspect No.
2 mine at Coal Creek on Monday   In
connection with "Progressive Fernie."
Accompanied by Mr.    Thos.  Z.   X.
Biggs, and manned with an ultimatum
to Manager Heathcote at Coal Creek,
we first visited the M. F. and M, office and found Superintendent Black
seated at-his rosewood desk.      The
chief despatcher soon'had a special on
hand, and we were designated to the
place bf honor ln the hurricane "deck
of caboose, from which point we were
able to inhale air that would be cheap
at $1 a breath (also a few cinders'.)
Arriving at Coal Creek it was evident
that, the news of our approach had not
preceded us, for things were, going on
very much as usual.      However" we
gave Bill Evans the high sign, and as
he is mayor of Coal' Creek, we were
&£ once established  as citizens     in
good standing.     We found Mr. Heathcote in his private office, which at that
time was between a couple of cars on
the-track.-    He did not seem to be at
all alarmed when he found out who we
were, and told Corporal Thomas    to
take us down and get some duds on
and some lamps and come up to No.
2.     We gained admission to the sanctorum of the big. men of the Coal Co.
and after \ye had fitted ourselves out
with .regulation smock and jeans, we
proceeded to the lamp house, where
our uniforms had the desired effect.
then began to feel quit like full fledged miners.     On arriving at the top of
the tipple at the mouth of No. 2, we
met ..-Jack, Wilde, *. the  popular. check-
weighman at Coal'Creek..'" He looked
quite like the governor general,   but
was ever on the look out for.cars   to
'see that the men got credit for their
work.     A few minutes later Pit Boss
Wm. Lancaster came out. of the centre
of the earth and Informed us that .he
would unfold the mysteries of a coal
mine.      We were requested  to turn
out pockets out to his nibs; however
it wasn't any Black hand game nnd we
woro relieved of 11 few matches,   and
after  Big    Chlof    Lancnstor    waded
th rough  seven   or  eight  courses    of
lunch in his cnsilo nonr tho entrance
tho order was given to proceed to proceed. Our lamps wore ngnln grubbed,
nnd Big Chief mndo n move ns though
ho wns going lo blow thom out, hut.
guofls thoy looked good lo lilm, for wo
got them back and the line formed up
headed by the pit boss, tho centre ably
supported by the fully uniformed newsies and Corporal Biggs bringing up
the rear.      All went well    tor fifty
yards or so, when one worthy ■ took
about a quart out of his head on   the
roof of the mine.   Mines were sure
made for short men—or  short, men
for mines. ■   Dark—say on the Q.T.
it had "the doings of the Black Hand
pluggers beat forty ways.    However,
the farther on we went the farther we
were  from home,  and  for the time
being we were safe from pursuit by our
creditors.   .* Thomas.behind and, the
Chief ahead were busy telling us all
the time about brattice, pillars, timbers, cross cuts, slopes, inclines, main
'entry, but much was-rlost on us making futile efforts to keep up and dodge
horses, harmless In the - extreme and
looking about as much out of place as
some residents of Fernie would look
in Heaven.      Finally we heard   the
sound of the pick and knew that active
operations were-not far off, although
we were prepared to make a "Happy-
david" that we had gone about   seven
miles—real distance not half a mile.
Turning a corner sharply we knocked
at the door of Messrs. Cole   and Dickenson's   private   apartments,   where
both Bills were earnestly engaged in
knocking old Harry out of the centre
of the earth.     Guess they saw green
all right, for they weren't at all backward in illustrating in a practical way
that.they thought,we would make good
miners—that is we were requested to
proceed  to  proceed—of  course  with
pick and shovel.'     We wallopped.   a
wall in front of..us, threw a bit,into
a car, and quit, quite willing that the
same two Bills—Bill Cole    and ■ Bill
Dickenson should go .fa It. (Shortly, af-
ter'we called on.Albert Cartlidge and
Harry Cairns. The roof of . their house
was leaking—or In other words there
wasn't auy roof.     The, coal kept falling down from above, making straight
timbering difficult (that sounds quite
professional.) We'were Informed that
there wns enough    gas above thoso
timbers to blow us to Fornio if   we
headed that way. To prove this one of
the lamps was held nbovo tlio timbers
and It showed strong symptoms of going out—so did wo nnd wo wont. Then
we headed for tho "Deeps." They nro
called thai, because) that's whnt.   ihey

to a fuller extent what the horrors of
a mine accident would be.   In    outdoor accident men escaping at    the
time have a show for their lives—but
in a mine—spared perhaps at the exact moment of the Impact, only to run
into the most deadly gases and with
no lights, for the safety lamps go out
in the presence of after damp. That
some men1 do make their way through
Inky darkness and deadly gases    to
channels of fresh air seems impossible.
Passing along, we came to where Harry Fox. and C,  Edgar were knocking
their bread and butter out of the mine.
Harry was going tb wallop the editor,
on general principles', but we know
Harry better now than before and appreciate his grievance.    However.we
parted- with Harry and his pal on the
best of terms.     Wherever Bill Carroll
is you may be sure Jack Kent is not
far off. They are connected by an in-
• separable and invisible cord that only
stretches about 50 feet.     One .was
busy in a place that looked like a rat
hole, but was called a crosscut and refused to come out, evidently preferring
to stay with his dollars and cents job
than to hob-nob with nobility. About
this time some strange power inside
told us that we hail been long enough
away from daylight and grub, and so
a start was made for daylight'!'   How
they find their way out I'll pass up.
But we followed the big head light and
now and again stopped at the side to
let a load by. The greater part of the
trip we walked in a very penitent attitude with head at about 45 degrees,
for it's 'better to walk thus than get
a story taken off your skypiece. _Fln:
peared to be the most brilliant illumination—but found out shortly It   was
only daylight. Say-it sure looked good
too.     The next place.was the tipple
iind; a wonderful thing it 1s too, - the
cars coming from all over, being weighed, dumped, screened, the coal loaded
by an Intricate mass of ponderous machinery, the whole thing moving nnd
acting with clock like precision.
.We then proceeded to the wash
house nnd happened to get a squint at
our mugs and—oh! what a change!

The "Big Noise" of the United* States
—at present engaged in the delectable
pastime of animal slaughter, in Africa
has seen fit to fulfil his promise and
lay the spook of Socialism.
Incidental to his performing a necessary service on bobalf of a long suffering and nerve wrecked public, who
have conjured up- night marches of
long haired revolutionists bent on inaugurating seven holidays a week, with
accompanying free entertainments in
' which thc curmngnole shall be conspicuous, .he will not feel hisdignily
lowered by accepting, ?2 per word for
his verbal gymnastics.
Evidently it pays to be a president.
The Socialists expecting big things
from The .Man Who Alone and Entirely
by Himself bust, up tho trusts, awaited,the onslaught with feat* and tremblings, but the expected hurricane developed as much force as a boy blowing bubbles.'
3 There is one statement, however,
worth while considering, it reads as
"Thorough going Socialists occupy
in relation to all morality, and especially domestic morality, a position so
revolting—and I choose my words
carefully—that it is difficult to discuss
it in a reputable paper."
This slanderous statement is worthy
of its author, it is in complete harmony with the ethics of the hero (?)
who charged the enemy of his country
at San Juan—by proxy, and boasts of
having shot°a fleeing Spaniard in the
We might in passing recall the no-
„ lorious stand taken by this erstwhile
leading citizen of the United States,
when the fate of Haywood, Mo3*er and
-Pettiboiie hung in the balance, when
■ • he-in no uncertain voice endeavored
to influence public opinion that these
men might'be done to death.
The infamous "Alton deal"  ' made
possible   when Roosevelt was gover-
__nor of _New York is now become his-
cliatt.el slavery would sometime disappear. He was considered visionary
just as are the Socialists, who now
say that the present capitalist system
will pass away.
Under the wages system the toiler is
never given the full product'of his toll.
What ho does receive represents the
amount of his product he can buy back.
What is left is called "overproduction"
and results in a shutting down of industry and seeking foreign markets.
It illustrates the inadeqiiacy of capitalism.
You are not really a capitalist unless
you have an annual income from your
property in excess of $3,000. If you
are making less than that from it your
interest lies with Socialism, for that
fs the average production .of the toiler
under present favorable conditions,
and would bo your Income under Socialism. Don't let the real capitalist
use you against your interest.
torical. "   ■       ,
But although the Socialists, according to Roosevelt, are "Atheists," "Free
Lovers" an'Q "Moral* Degenerates," he
evidently is not averse lo co-operate
- with them, ancl in his next article he
tries to show, "whore we can work"
with these 'aforementioned degenerates. This change of front, implies
that the contention of the Socialists as
to, social conditions Is'correct.
Now when any person comes for-
wurd and claims lo be a champion
against vice It is wise, lo ask for his
credentials, and n brief review of
Roosevelt's past puts his claim as a
judge of morality out of court..

the reason that it is the most common,
of all ills, and it is certainly gratifying
to sufferers to know that Chamberlain's, Pain Balm will afford relief and
make rest and sleep possible. In many
cases the relief from pain which is at
first temporary, has become permanent, while in old people subject to
chronic rheumatism often brought on

Heroes of Faith.-Heb. xi:l-40.
Golden Text—Faith is the substance
of things hoped for, the evidence of,
things not seen.-Ileb, xi:l. ' 7-
Verses 1-3—In*   what' respects.,
faith and hope similar?
If a desirable thing is possessed by
faith, does that give us much, or- similar, satisfaction as the possession of
.the thing itself? "'   '
What is the ground of our faith,
that the "worlds were framed by the
word of God?"      , '
Why do we admire the men of- faith
of past years?
Verses 4, 5—Abel had a truly religious nature; now'was this nature the
result of hls-faitli or was his faith, the
result, of his nature?''   ,       v-
-, Does." this record mean that Enoch's
translation was directly0 caused by- a
specific act of faitli, or that his general, life,'of faith made him such'a
'■■-good man that God' translated him
without,death? .. ** -    '
Verse. 6—Faith is sometimes based
upon outward evidence; "sometimes
upon   personal revelation; som-etimes
composite grounds; what moral-or
spiritual qualities, therefore,   are.nec-
* essary for becoming a man of faith?
(This question  must be answered  in
writing by members of the club.) ,

please God? ' '--    ;   ,

and that of the. Pilgrim Fathers when

God, felt a drawing to go to the rich

petent non-union employees whom they could, employ if they wanted to. Their opposition to a closed shop, is merel)' opposition.to. the. principle of unionism, which, however, the board,* has already recognized'.        \' '       ^) ,'j- "**        -'"":V y,
■ ■ It is to be hoped that-the board wiHnot go sol
far as to favor an open shop, as it will not end thei
strike, and it will cause.dissension in this country.)
as long as such a rule exists, and it will be a blow!
at unionism in every part of the country—Calgary|
Tlie members ot* the Conciliation board are now
considering their report at Maeleod after going
over all the conditions and taking as much evidence as they believed to be necessary. Though
the operators, evidently for the purpose of demonstration, are making some request for additional
consideration, yet it is generally understood that
the question at is.sue is thc open and closed or union
1 As this isa matter of importance effecting not
only the miners in question, but it is a delcaralion
upon a principle of unionism', the Albertan has already expressed an opinion upon this dispute, and
believes that there is but one way of looking upon
the question.
Thc mere fact that the Lemieux act is in existence is a recognition of unionism. And unionism is
made possible by the union shop.
The union shop is the principle of every union.
The typographical union has the closed shop, and
every other union has ,in practice or principle the
union shop.   -Most of,-them .have this.in practice.
And it is*not unreasonable. The union supplies
the labor and places its guarantee of efficiency upon it. The employer pays for the labor. The union
cannot guarantee the labor or place its sanction
upon the product unless it is certain that the labor
is efficient. ' ~
There is some lofty argument about the rights
ofthe individual and the privileges of a man to
work without joining something to which he has
conscientious objections. * That is not worthy of
very much consideration. . The'union has no real
standard save that of efficiency. ; It is no closed
^mrpof'ation"T Any persoh7wlicnraTT^™^iris"ef-
ficiency can get admission to the union.
It is no mysterious guild and no person who is
not entirely- misguided can have any objection to
joining a union on account of any of the mysterious rites. The man who has conscientious scruples has never.been known to decline*to share the
benefits gained for him by the efforts of the
union, '
No agreement can be satisfactory to the operators, the men or the public, which does not give
some gunrantec of permanency. No agreement can
1)0 satisfactory or permanent which violates one of
the essential principles of unionism.
The operators have nothing to gain by the open
shop.     There-is no considerable   number of corn-
On Tuesday next, June 15th, the ratepayers
of Fernie will be,called upon to vote on.two by>
laws, one for the purchasing'of a site and erectin
a fire hall in the city, the other for purchasing
park site and clearing.. and putting the same, i:
condition. ' "   ■ ■
The Fire hall proposition speaks for itself ;n
arguments are needed to convince citizens of th
urgent necessity for. the immediate construction o
a suitable building, centrally located, for the hous
ing of our splendid fire equipment. The man;
advantages'are too appare*nt to need enumeration
The other by-law, for a park site, can b<* viewc<|
from several viewpoints, briefly as follows •
.1. As land values stand in and around Fernie!
it appears to be an Al investment, for propert;
is sure to increase in value to a greater degree tha
the cost of the improvements.
■ 2. Fernie needs a park. This eity has read
ed the stage when a big public play ground is
real live need, .The advantages are apparent
AVith the completion of a park, and a good fasj
track, we would be assured of good race meets an
athletic events, and in this way we would be abl
to hold,our holiday crowds, and to bring other
here. .     ■ ■' *
3. The section'intended to be cleared out. fo
park purposes has been a most'prolific source o:
fires, and the great fire of August 1 last came ■ ii:
through this way. The clearing out of all thi,
timber, and thus leaving a wide open space her
would act as an effective barrier to the progress o
any other fires. '
Many other ideas will doubtless suggest themselves to any one taking the time to think it over.
It's a safe, sound, investment, and the expenditure
called for each year will not. be-heavy.

Floods are doing considerable damage in the interior of this \ province and in' the neighboring
states. But if Father Fraser keeps himself under

Rather peculiar .logic, is it not, that "considerable damage" has been done by floods, but very
"little harm" will be done if the Fraser keeps to
his lines?   . ..        .... .. _■ ■ '  .
We1 have record of another newspaper man
retiring at the age of 50.independently rich. Thrift
and honesty always win out. He started, twenty
years ago penniless and retired worth $75,000. He
always made it a point to attend strictly to business, try to please the public and paid his way as
he went, with the result that he is on Easy street

The C. \.. P. football league was
advanced another stage on Saturday,
•Tune 5th. There.should have been a
full scliedue of games, but ' Cowley,
who were due at-Michel, wired the
game  off and  have decided  to wiih-
-draw from the league. The major
portion of the Cowley players are In
the, employ of the C. P. R. and were
unable to'get the necessary Saturday
off to play their games, hence the rea-
_son'for   their action in withdrawn.g
from the league.       ""''
'   The clubs engaged were Frank   vs.
Fernie', Coal Creek vs. Bellevue and
" Hosmer' vs.' Coleman.
- In the first named game the points
were divided, the result being a goalless draw. The game was played at
Frank. Aleck Adamson, late of Coal
Creek, turned out for (ho home team
and Isaac IJullon wns rested for tlio
day.      Both sides had chances      to

either side was too strong for the opposing afterward A littlo diversion was
caused, during thc game by Hilly Price
stopping play and looking at. a fall of
rock reding down Turtle mountain.

'.'Yes, that's her," Markart, whispered
in answer to the question in the colonel's eyes. The eyes'flew back to, Sophy instantly. There, too, was set the
gaze of Countess Ellenburg, for Sophy
was in full beauty that day. She, too,
loved toys, and her ancient hatred of

looked down her nose at thnt! "* For

So quaint an interruption to the stately formality of, the scene struck people's sense of humor. Everybody laughed—even Countess Ellenburg. Sophy's
own laugh rose rich and merry. Her
Ignorance or carelessness of etiquette
betrayed Itself. Sho darted at the pret-,

kissed him, answering, "That's my luck
—my red star."
The boy touched tho mark with ills

Into his blue eyes.
"Your luck!" ho said softly nnd continued to look nt the mysterious sign
after Sophy had set him down ngnln.
The littlo scene was told nil ovor Slav*

tbo nature nnd tho meaning of tho red

such things, oven tbo wise talk.

exclamation of
many voices
broke across
their talk, At
the other end
of the - room
meu aud women pressed Into a circle round
some point of
interest • which
could not be
seen by Sophy
iind her companions.' A loud
voice rang out
iu authoritative
tones: "Stand
back: Stand
back and open
all the windows!"
"That's Natcbeff's voice," said tbe
prince. • Natcheff was tbe leading physician of Slavna. "Somebody's faluted,
1 suppose. Well, the place is stuffy
. Markart emerged from the circle,
which' had widened out In obedience
to the physician's orders. As he hurried past the prince be said: "The king
has fainted, sir. I'm*,going to fetch
Lepage." Two or three other'men van
to open the windows. ■
"The king fainted! I never knew him
to do that, before'.'.'
He hastened to where his father lny,
the subject of Natcheff's ministrations.
Sophy aud Marie followed lu his wake
through the opening which the onlookers made for him.    The king showed
■signs of recovering, but Natcheff's face
was grave  beyond  even  tbe requirements of his profession or of his patient's rank.   The next moment Lepage
came up.    This man, the king's body
servant,  was a small,  plump  persi)*.-
who bad generally a weary, linpas.-'
uninterested manner.   He looked
er uninterested even now, but his
was very quick, and be was sooirtt      '

that the king merely needed rest and
change. After a few days of the for;
mer it was --yoposed to seek the latter
by moving the court to his majesty's
country seat at Dobrava—that estate
from which Sophy had been graciously
bidden to choose her title. Meanwhile
there was no reason why -the prince
should not carry out his intention and
proceed to the castle of Praslok..
Below ^Slavua tbe main postroad—as
has already been stated, there was no
railway at this tinte—follows the course
of the river Kratb for about five miles
lu a southeasterly direction. -It is then
carried across tbe stream, which continues to trend- to the south, by an ancient, wooden .bridge and runs northeast for another fifteen miles through
flat country and past prosperous agricultural and pastoral villages till lt
reaches the marshy land bordering
Lake Taltt. The lake, extending from
this point to tbe spurs of the mountain
range which forms the froutler, bars
its farther direct progress, and it divides into two branches. The right
prong of the fork continues on the level
till It reaches Dobrava. eight miles
from the point of bisection. Here it
Inclines to the northeast again and, after some ten miles of steady ascent,
crosses the mountains by St Peter's
pass; the one carriage road over the
range and over the frontier. The left
prong becomes, a steep ascent directly
the bisection has occurred, rising sharply for five miles to the hill on which
the castle of Praslok stands! Then It
runs for another five miles oh a high
plateau till it ends tit the hill city of
Volscul, which stands on the edge of
the plateau, looking down on Lake
Taltl and across to Dobrava. ln tho
plain opposite,
Beyond Volsenl there Is uo road In
the proper sense, but only cart or bridle
tracks. Of these the principal and
most.frcquentpd runs diagonally across
the valley in which Lake Taltl lies, is
interrupted by tlie lake, at tbat point
about a mile and n half wide, and then
meets the road from Dobrava halfway
up St. Peter's pass and about twenty
miles across country from Volsenl. It
thus forms the base of a rough und irregular triangle t of country, with the
point; where the Slavna road bisects,
thc pass and Volseui marking Its three
angles. Lake falti is set in the middle,
backed^by a chain of hills continuous
everywhere ., except- at
the. indentation of the
pass]   ' . '   .,
Though   so   near, to

lungs, and obstinate and lingering coughs, is based on
the recognition of the fundamental truth that "Golden
Medical Discovery" supplies Nature with body-building, tissue-repairing, muscle-making materials, in condensed and concentrated form. .With this help Nature
supplies the necessary strength to the stomach to digest
food, build up the body and thereby throw off lingering
obstinate coughs.' The "Discovery" re-establishes the
digestive and nutritive organs in sound health, purifies
end enriches the blood, and nourishes the nerves—in
short establishes sound vigorous health.
If your dealer offers something "tost as good,"
it is probably better FOR HIM...it pays better.
Bat yoa are thinking ot the cure not the profit, so
there's nothing "fast as good" tor you.    Say ao.

KIEL, June 8—Prince Henry of
Prussia, representing his brother, Emperor William, spoke as follows today
at the annual meeting, of thc navy
league,'held here under the presidency
of Grand Admiral Von Koester.
'Every one is glad that a good understanding of tlie navy league once more
has been established. The organization should devote itself to,the ' furtherance and the carrying out of the
Jegal naval program. In addition, to a
powerful army we need a fleet in' order to assure peace."        ' y r,
Admiral, von Koester said that Germany was.not considering a fleet
against any definite opponent, but as
a mpiins tn salf ilnfp'nr-p. ""\V"e_desine-
to live bn the best of terms with all
civilized countries," he declared.*
Admiral Weber then made an address in which he referred to the "concentration of the strongest fleet in
the world In the North Sea." He said
he hoped that war would never happen
but that Germany, after recent occurrences was obliged to bear in mind
the possibility of such a contingency.
Admiral Weber rejected the idea of
an agreement, with Great Drltain in
the matter of naval construction.
A telegram was recoivod from emperor Willinm saying: "Our principal
task in the future as in the past, Is to
open a way ^o mako the fleet popular
"and to cruato Gorman sea power for
the assurance of pence,"
