■Rumore of "Black Hand" operations
lliave been rife for some time In 'this

touchy subject here as about 'a .year
ago quite a number were rounded' up
-after attempting to carry on operations
. In our city.
Acting on information placed'lm their
hands, the provincial police along "with
, Chief Burroughs and Constable Gorman captured a man at Coal-Creek'on
Mondayv locating him in a Bltack-'at;
that place which is tenanted by'&'num-
ber of Italians.
The name given to the police Ib'
Joseph Raniera. He is a sohto'ffmm

5 ft. 9 "in., smooth. shaven, ian'a ,<nif

A' considerable amount of inc'rlmlii*

which was Inhabited by a number of
Italians, Including tho prisoner, al

Snow Fall Reaponslble
. jThe^snow.fall during the past winter
•was-Uhe deepest recorded for years,
-anti i in thei foothills and sides of the
mountains'very littlo snow goes away
•until'the'rains and heat* of spring are
conl hand; to ..help it out. ' This year
thei'spring-'seasorihas been backward,
and the rainfall not much, with the re-
■-suit'that the snow has hot moved out
as* rapidly'as in other, years.
JFor the last five or six days,, however, Old, Sol-has been getting in' his
: licks, and numerous small streams all
along the'river have grown to be min-.
iature rivers, all of. them adding their
quota 'to help.make-the Elk' river.. a
dashing/turbulent, treacherous, full-
fledged river. - . c.- - _ .'.
• -In the. Foothilla- '.'"'■ ."■*
7A couple of local men who'afe well
acquainted*■*with the* mountain trails
and paths in'this locality, made a trip
to.the foot of Mt. Fernie about three
morning that on the farthest rise, in
the. foothills arid'^on -ther. north 4:side,
there .were • plenty.* of .places where, ten
to'ni of'solfd-'snow *was stiU lying,-'and.
at that time it'had showed no signs of
leaving. In the Bame district now
there is no sign* of show, bo an enormous amount of water must have passed-off In a short time.
West Fernie the Target
As usual West,Fernie is the place
to get the worst of the flood. A Ledger man took a walk over on Thursday
and'had a mighty Interesting time too
making the trip,.across to the G. N.
tracks. . On going down the'hill by
the:skating rink It appeared that the
road, ran through a river about half
a mile wido. 'Tho*roadbed hore Is
belng'sadly undermined and fears are
expressed that a washout may occur.
On reaching tho bottom a family was
seen making a hasty exit from a small
tar-paper covored house on tho loft
handmldo of the road, which was. woll
night surrounded by tho water. Horo
was "Scotty" Jolnson doing a flno
stunt with a mnttross and -several
boxes piled, on tho side, of then rond,
'the laBt..fow trips bolng mado ,wlth
considerable difficulty through the rapidly rising wator, It looked first as
though houso cleaning wore ln order,
but on enquiry Scotty Informed us In
no uncertain way that "Ilo was goln'
to flit out;an yon wator was comln'
too noar.."
The rink Ib suro flooded and rondy
for tho froHt. Fnrthor, on tho road
two other rigs woro mot,* loaded to tho
top with furailturo and bedding, whilo
In one Instance the family mil Intact
on top of their worldly pobhohbIoiis.

Bhe took bar shoes and stockings off.
However, sins didn't,
Word was sent" up town and Chairman Stanley and several members of
the school .board, came to the rescue.
They bravely forded the streams, and
entered the castle. Here, with undaunted courage:they secured all,the
means of imparting rudimentary education tb the'fbrty odd western hopefuls/ piled them high and dry, and
left them to their fate. .
Farther up this street several families are moving-out, preferring to be

The G.N. Bridge
,The Great Northern bridge, recently
completed, seems to stand the test
well. The danger,' as stated by
those who know, is •>hat the logs lu the
river above may come down in a body,
in which case the abutments of the ''.
N. Bridge and the West Fernie bridge
would, be given a severe test. The
round tops of the septic tanks are only
a foot or so above the water.
7 Great logs and trees, evidenlty torn
from the bank of the stream farther
up, can be seen coming down and under the bridge, at a terrific ^velocity,
huge timbers being tossed' around ln
the swirling waters like mere chips.
The river-front of the Annex Is also
being attacked,. In many places, but
fortunately as yet few houses are in
the low-lying portions.
; Lots of Sightseers
' There is a continual stream of people from the city on the road to and
from West Fernie, and the G.N. pro-
erty also affords a good view.     '•
Operations Hindered «
Work at the Elk Lumber Mill and
yards Is of course somewhat curtailed.
Many of the men are busy in various
parts of the property saving- timber
by placing it out pf reach' of the water. At this time* they do not seem
to contemplate any Berious damage to
their property. ■.       "

avenue is applied to It, across which
a good sized creek was doing business.
An enterprising citizen had built .a
new fence along the side of his lot on
this street,~and without waiting for, a
special Invitation, all mounted to the
top of the fence In turn and crossed
the impromptu river.
In the Gardens

The board, Messrj. Sherman, Maeleod and Chairman Grant, met it Lille
oniMonday and the evidence from both
sides was submitted. In regard to the
Bear valley seam the operators tiled
to prove that, this was one and the
same seam as the old No. one.
However the miners proved. that lt
was an entirely new seam and demanded that a new price be fixed. The
board decided to visit the mine before
concluding investigations. They * met
at Belelvue on Tuesday and there the
operators tried to prove by submitting
figures of the earnings of the miners
that a reduction would be fair, and
asked for a reduction of 26c per ton."
President Sherman ' stated that the
operators should submit a definite proposition and make some specific demand, as up to this time nothing had
been filed with the board as to what
reduction the operators asked. The
operators then demanded that ' tho -
price be 30 cents per ton for pillar
work, or a reduction, of 15c. at Bellevue, and at Hillcrest to be 35 cents,
with a similar reduction at Coleman. -
These prices to include all timbering.
These reductions, if granted,"would cut
the earning of the miners there in half.,
After taking all the evidence the board
adjourned to meet at Hillcrest Wednesday.
On reconvening and atter cross-examining, the miners clearly demonstrated that even underline present
conditions of mines at Hillcrest the
men ln room work were earning more
money. The operators through the
general manager tried'to prove that a
man could do as much work In one

Leslie M: Shaw, secretary of the
United States;treasury under Theodore
Roosevelt made tbe following remarkable statement in an address to ' the
students of Chicago University
March l; 1907.' *' \
■ "When our manufactories grow'
ger than the United States then there
will be war, the bloodiest war in the
history of- mankind * *' * The time
is coming when the manufactories will
outgrow the. country and men by the
hundreds of thousands; will be-turned
out of the factories. . -That- of itself is
not so bad, butwhen.vwe realize that
we pay out'in-'-wages'as much as the
rest of the world put together, we begin to see'tlie seriousness of the situation."    . "_ yy '[;;   ;■ '.
"The factories are multiplying faster
than our,,trade, and we , will shortly
have a.surplus,, with no one'abroad* to
buy, and.* with':no one'at home to-absorb it.because the laborer has not
been paid'enough' to buy back "what he
created." * '        '
"What will happen then? . Why all
these men will be turned out of the
factories. Thousands of them—hundreds of thousands. * They- will find'
themselves without food,' Then will
, come the great danger to' the country,
for these men will be hard men to
deal with.
' "The last "century was the worst in
the history * of the ' world for wars.
I look to see this century bring out
the greatest conflict ever waged in
the world. It will be a war for "markets aiid all the nations of the world
will be in the fight, as they are after
the same markets for the surplus of
their factories." * * * One great source
of dangeHs in the unearned increment
of our wealth. I admit that I have
profited by that source myself but F
realize now, it is all, wrong. I remember the first time I was guilty of getting something .for nothing. I bought
a piece, of land in Iowa and sold it in a
the welfare of the peoplo we are abjectly poor'. ■ ".
. But, it is quite true that whilst
wealth and .welfare are decreasing,
productive power is Increasing; and
nothing but.the perversion of ,athl3
power to the production of socially
useless commodities prevents the apparent wealth from becoming real. The
purchasing power that commands luxuries In the. hands of the rich would
command true wealth in the hands of
all. Yet private (capitalist) property
must still heap the purchasing power
upon the .few rich and withdraw it
from the many poor., So* that,, in
the end, the subject of the one, boast
that private property can make the
great accumulation of so-called wealth
whicli it points so proudly to asUhe
result of* its power to scourge men
and women daily to prolonged and intense toil, turns out to be a simulacrum. With all its energy,'its Stniles-
ian "self help", Its merchant'princely
enterprise, its' ferocious sweating .and
slave"driving,'' its prodigality ' of
blood, sweat 'and'tears,'what'has' it
reaped up over and above the' pittance
of its'slaves?                7
Only a monstrous pile ,of frippery,

ward' political action' by labor organization from' purely'selfish motives. By
using their influence .over their not
over-bright fellow workers they derive
personal benefit by selling their serv-
icesto the highest bidder in either the
old parties. Suchmfen are traitors-to
their class. '
Political action Instead, of being a
menace to trade'unionism is, as conditions in Europe show It, most reliable
support. ,•'.'.
When the workers begin to "go In
for politics" we usualy see the capitalist class trying to dissuade them by
promises of reform, but If .when organizations declare for political action,
they'try to imitate the capitalists aiid
patch up the present system by 'palliatives,1' they had better stay as they
are. ' ' .
Their slogan must be "Unto the producer does the products of Labor bo-
long."' ( ".

Thc method of •id.iiiuislcrhig.the Siiiiila/ elo.smg
law in this city is rather unique, and fortunate'it is
that tlie Fernie interpretation is not widespread.
As a'basis for argument, it is admitted that all the
business stores of Fernie, including in this category
hotels, merchandise emporiums, groceries, confectionery stores, tic, pay taxes at the same rate into
the one common 'treasury; tliey are all competitors
in a sense for the floating currency of the community; they should therefore, he dealt with the same
when it comes to Sunday closing.
To particularize or mention names is unnecessary, for 'tis noticeable to even a casual observer,
that certain people in the city seem to be able to
keep wide open seven days in the. week, and offer
for sale every article in their store, not one whit of
which is necessary for the sustenance of human
life or the alleviation of human suffering. Here
again, side by side with these seven day graspers,
are drug stores, in which it is impossible to get even
simple remedies, or a prescription filled on a Sunday, no matter how urgent the case may be.* Time
after time, the medical men of the city tell us, have
people been put to needless inconvenience, to say
nothing of pain and worry, simply because the drug
stores won't keep open certain hours on Sunday to
fill prescriptions.
To limit drug stores to the filling of prescriptions, and to allow full scope to confectionery estab-
, lishments, is on the face of it, the veriest kind of
rubbish. ' , .
The almighty dollar must be paramount to all
other interests witli certain p\eople\in this city.. To
say nothing of the moral aspect of the_ease._l\vhich
be gained by prolonging the sessions, or by taking
evidence? ■ The whole thing at once resolves itself
into a sort of comic-opera, going through all the
form- and ceremony ,of a conciliation board, and
all the time knowing that tangible results/based on
a mutually;'--advantageous conclusion, were out of
the question? *'■" -.■.--•
- Again, at the Maeleod conference' the same
situation arose, only from a different source. The
operators stated explicitly that unless the findings
of ihe board coincided with their views, they would
have none of it. Could any move possibly be
made which would have a more disastrous effect
on the honest efforts of arbitrators toward an amicable settlement?
The miners showed that, even with this handicap, they would continue with the arbitration proceedings, though.under tlie circumstances, the dignified and proper course would have been to withdraw from arbitration proceedings conducted under such preposterous stipulations. ''     '
The over-bearing, dietatory attitude of the Operators can profit them nothing; it drives sympathy
into the channels of the men,,who by their manly,
and determined effort for simple justice hsivc won
the admiration and plaudits of a public, now seriously anxious to' see a settlement, and a speedy
renewal of operations. '„

The Dominion Act to aid,in thc prevention and
settlement of strikes and lockouts ih mines and in-
dustries connected with the public utilities, chapter 20, clause 50 says "The board may with the eon-
sent of the minister," employ competent experts or
assessors to examine the books or official reports
of either party, and to advise it upon any technical or other matter material to the investigation,
but shall not disclose such reports or the results of
such inspection or examination tmder this section
without the consent, of both the parties to this dispute."'    ;   '
The operators consider the above all right   as
*■    ■ -' * **
long as'they are questioning the miners representatives, but as. soon as the* miners representatives ask
any question' touching on the profits derived;- or
anything of that nature, the shoe pinches, and they
claim that the question is irrevalent to the dispute.
This, of course, is in keeping with the stand they
have taken from the outset. "Grab all and look
for more." '
seems to them to be a dead issue, they are following
a killing game. , No man can afford to sacrifice
his rest day, and to force employees to do the same,
for the sake of cornering a small quota more of the
elusive dollar, nor can he expect to receive , the
full measure of public respect in so doing.
. 'Apart from the aspect of the question as regards the public and the seven-dayers, surely' the
officials who have these matters in hand can see
that the law as it is worked out at present, is such
that is guarantees neither a closed town on Sunday,
nor yet does it tolerate the open town idea. This
hit-and-miss interpretation of municipal statutes is
a fallacy, a menace to honest, business men, a nuisance to the public, and altogether intolerable for
consistent municipal government. .,
The Lomieux Act hns been weighed "in the bal*
nncc and found wanting.
Emergencies have arisen in connection with thy
arbitration and conciliation boards in District ,.18
which tho Act fails to cover, und which liave made
seHsions useless—nay worse than useless—a waste
of time.
When the operators and miners meet in session,
and at tho very outset the operators refuse to he
bound by the decision of the bonrd, what, then, can
It may He very interesting news for our men,that
while under oath at. the Conciliation Board Investigation President Stockett admitted that-In his
very many years experience in connection with coi'l
mining he had always found that the closed shop
benefited the operators as well as the miners. Yet
gentle reader, this great and glorious chief of the
almost defunct Association is holding out for an
But wait—another operator,on the same stand,
and under oath, made the statement"'in answer to
a query by a representative of tlie, miners "that
after years of careful study of the mining industry
he did not consider that men working under pillar
work ran-any more danger than men working outside. He could demonstrate it by the fact that
just lately a man,working outside got kicked by a
horse and received an injury to his shoulder!
And these are the Operators!
Some' people's minds arc very small, and their
intellects still smaller, but one of the smallest .wc
have had the pleasure of, "hutting into" is a man
who styles himself as "Observer" and writes in the
Lethbridge Herald, The abstruse manner in which
he writes is more than apparent. Speaking of thc
Ledger he says "if it is going to go over to the
capitalist class wc had better sell out." We advocated thnt the union men of tho city who were
out of employment be given preference over the
Chinks, The Chinese have not as yet joined any
union in Fernio, and ns soon as they do they will

Just turned the hour of noon'on Monday a rig, containing our *own- provincial, constable and Fernie chief of police
Burroughs, along with .City, Constable
Gorman, came into Coal Creek by the
highway. Leaving the. rig they entered
a shack which is tenanted by Italians.
Ono of them was arrested and a search
of the. bought brought' to light what
was considered to be sufficient Implicating evidence-to sustain-the suspicion
that some of the occupants were .In
league with the Black Hand. ' The officers of the law.took their prisoners and

/ Bellevue had Hosmer as their guests
in a league match on Saturday the 29th
of May.. The game was started at two
o'clock. The teams .were: Hosmer, Hutson, Climle, Oversby, Dickie,-Balderson
Berryman, Gordon, Weldon, McDonald,
Cornet, Symonds,
Hosmer was unfortunate ln losing the
services'of their crack centre at . the
last moment owing to his wrist being
sprained at the practice on Thursday,
but Berryman proved to be an able substitute.
Bellevue won the toss' and McDonald
kicked off against a strong wind. Play
was very- wild and was mostly at the
Hosmer end of-the field but good defensive tactics' by Hutson, Climle and
Balderson spoiled the well merited.efforts of the Bellevue front line. Hosmer
had one great chance of a lifetime by a
combined run by'Gordon, Weldon and
McDonald which ended In McDonald
shooting into Lindsay's outstretched
hands—hard lines  Indeed.   ,    ,
' Some idea of the game may be had
from the fact that when Bellevue forced eight corners in succession, but the
shooting was wild and Hutson was in
great form and was ,'easily the best on
the field."   't    ." ■    .'   -
- Hosmer goal had'a close call, a shot
coming ln from middle; the wind car-
_ried_-ithe„ball rlght_lnto_r.the_goal'_and
Hiitsori was injured in clearing with a
couple of Bellevue men on top of him.
Half time arrived'with no scoring be-
,lng done. '
.Second Hnlf     '        -! '
; Hosmer started well ln this half and
looked like carrying, all before them,
but Bellevue defence stood firm and
transferred the ball to tho other end,
15-minutes-from the start a shot was
sent Into Hutson and Instead of catching tho ball he punted lt with his hand,
and knocked.lt on to tho breast of Ad-
dlin and he forced It through and thus
secured the only'goal of the game. Hosmer forced two corners in quick succession but failed to Improve their position
and tho game ended in favor of Bellevue by 1 goal to nil. -   - *    .
Whon playing with tho wind Bollo-
yuo had two balls soia'hat there was
ho tlmo lost ln getting a ball which had

Three games were played in the C.
N. P. football league on Saturday last
but the position of the various clubs
ou the league table have not been materially changed. Frank opened their
season with a visit to Michel, and
while they made a good showing they
failed to capture the points, Michel
winning by the only goal of the game.
Fernie came well out of the Coleman
match and improved their goal average1* considerably.
Bellevue just managed to secure the
points from Hosmer, winning by ,one
goal to nothing.
Below will be found the league table
showing the position of the different
clubs. Bellevue by their win over
Hosmer step Into 3rd place, but have
played two games more than Coal
Creek, whom they displace.

- Fernie met Coleman on Saturday
last, and certainly added to their reputation, defeating Coleman by, 5 to
2. Fernie turned out in their new colors of white, and blue, having in the
' meantime been using Coal Creek colors. The game started.at 6.15 a.m.
and a good crowd was present. There
was a slight wind blowing, and Coleman, winning the toss, elected to play
with the wind. Fernie started and
touched to touch.     From the throw-
' out Coleman took.the ball, and with a
nice piece of head.work rushed on
the Fernie line, but Fernie relieved.
Several passes were made oneach end
At   last Fernie kicked to touch and
were first to make ground. Chambers
from a pass by Millet got away on the
left, but his centre was intercepted by
Fagan, and- play transferred to    the
other end, the Frank forwards invading Raynor's charge. Raynor .brought
off a fine save from a good shot by
Hutton. Michel forward's got away on
a dangerous run, but Barnes spoiled a
likely chance by getting" offside. Michel,.with the wind in their favor, had
the best of matters, and continued to
press. Whitehouse dropped the ball
into the goal mouth, but Smith cleared
cleverly amidst cheers. The Frank
defence were playing a good game, and
try as they would Michel could not
get through. Weaver broke away on
the left and rounding Cardale, drove
the ball^ straight for home, but Carson
brought off a fine save. Michel continued the pressure and from a free
kick against Carson for carrying the
ball Millet scored the first goal of tho
match. Shortly afterward half time
was called. Michel leading by one goal
to nil. -    ■ ,    "    -'
On resuming after change of ends
Fru .ik forced the pace and two corners
in succession fell to them, but they
proved useless as they failed to score
from either. Harrison' on the left
had a* fine run and passed to Waugh,
who shot past the upright from a
spendld opening. From the goal
kick Michel forwards broke away, and
Barclay shot over the bar with., a
good try.. Barnes was penalized for
fouling McGechie, and McFarlane hit-
the crossbar with a capital shot. The
visitors were playing a very good game
but weak shooting by the forwards
spoiled their chances. McQueen was
now penalised for rough play and
Fagah had hard lines in not scoring
from the resulting free kick. Michel
broke away on the right but McGechie
cleared, and Waugh, getting on the hall
passed to Hutton and a nice passing
run by the Frank forwards ended by
Harrison just.missing by inches.
Frank gained a corner which Mason
cleared. • A free kick was awarded
to Frank, for Barnes tripping up .McGechie near the corner flag, and McFarlane had hard lines with a good shot.
Shortly afterward time was called, no
further scoring being done.
Final result, Michel 1; Frank 0. •
On the general run of the play both
teams were evenly matched. While
.Michel gained the' points it .cannot be

On the change over a difference was
soon noticed in the Fernie players.
They soon took the ball to near 'the
Coleman goal where It was kept for
some time. McEwing soon secured tho
ball and scored the first goal after half
tlmo. From the kick out Fernio secured a corner, but the kick came lo

the kick counted for nothing. After.

Sophy's excitement betrayed In the familiar signal on her cheek. But the
journalist was too excited on his own
account to notico other people. He was
talking feverishly, throwing bis lean

"No, but It makes my Impotence

said the prince. Ills manner grew
lighter, and the 8m He which had comforted Sophy remained on his face.
Stenovics came In. Ills nlr was.nery-

When You Think
Of the pain which many women experience with every
month it makes the gentleness and kindness always associated with womanhood seem to be almost a miracle.
While in -general no woman rebels against what she regards as a natural necessity there ia no woman who would
not gladly be free from this recurring period of pain.
Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription makes
weak women strong and sick women
well, and gives them freedom from pain.
It establishes regularity, subdues Inflammation, heals ulceration .and cares te*
male weakness.
Sick women are invited to consult De. Pierce by letter, *

the light of the illuminations, Serglus
Stefanovitch and Nikolas Stafnltz looked and sounded Just tbe same. I didn't
boo my way to that, and I didn't think
this lady would see hers., It seemed so

B. troops of the garrison and
their allies, tbe scum of tho
streets, thought that tbey had
scored a great victory and Indicted deep humiliation on the unpopular martinet who ruled and harried
them. They celebrated the event with
noisy but harmless revels, and when
Captain Ilercules was seen about again
-he submitted to a fortnight's, confinement to barracks with feelings la
which thunkfulness, though not gratitude, predominated—he found his popularity with them greater than ever.
Biit In the higher circles—the Inner
ring—of the party be served his reception vyas not. so cordial. • Stenovics
would not see, him.. Stafnltz saw him
only to.express'a most uncompromising
judgment on hi? conduct ,
Yielding In appearance, In point of
substance the  Prince 'of' Slavna  liad
scored heavily.   The big guns wore ordered from Germany. ■ The prluce had
.the money to pny for them, and they
were to be consigned.to him. „ Thos*
were  the. guarantees .which  he   had
asked from Stenovics.   When the guns
came—and he had agreed to make an
extra payment for early delivery—his
situatlonowould be very different With
trusty men' behind them it would go
hard with him if he were not master
of Slavna, ond he bad already obtained
•the king's sanction to raise and train-a
force of artillery from among his own
men in Volsenl aud its neighborhood.
The men of Volsenl were proof against
Mlstltch's bragging'arid the subtle indulgence by which Stafnltz held bis
power over the rank and file of tha
army.   They were true-to-the prince. .
The   idle, king's   family   pride   was
touched.   It was the one thing which
could rouse him.   At his son's express
request, and at that only, he acquiesced
In the release of MlstitcB and his satellite Sterkoff, but he was determined to
make his own attitude clear and to do
what he could to restore the prestlge'of
his family.   The prince said dryly that
the prestige would profit best of all by
tbe big guns.   The king was minded to
supplement their effect by something
and made his son grand master of it
There' was no harm in that and Stenovics readily consented!   He declared
that something more must be done for
the lady to whom his son owed his life.
To be made. keeper of the tapestries
might be a convenient recompense, but
was not honor enough.   Stenovics declared thnt nny mark of favor which
his   majesty   designed   for   Mile,   do
Gruche might most properly be hers.
FInnlly the king Instructed Stenovlea
to concentrate'all his ener-giea on tbe
matrimonial negotiations.   A splendid
marriage for Serglus with a German
princess would enhance and ntrength-
en the prestige more than anything
else.   Stenovics promised zealous obedience nnd withdrew full of thought
Tho order wns an ensy matter, nnd
honors for Sophy did no barm.   Tho
marriage wns ground much moro dell-
cnte.  It touched the "big stake" which
Colonel Stafnltz Imd so emphatically
warned the j.'i>i)ei*al not to piny on tho
bnd hnnd dcnlt to him by Mlstltch's
blundering,   But, with the big guns in
position nml the sturdy men of Volsenl
' behind then), would n good band ovor
come?   .
