Resolution -Passed at Mass Meeting
Censuring; Alberta Legislature*
on Miners'^ 8-Hour Law
1 A special meeting of the miners of
Taber was held in the Miners Union
hall there to protest against action taken by ^Alberta government. regarding
the eight hours bill.. The following
resolution was unanimously adopted
after much discussion by a large and
representative'meeting, in which vice-
president Stubbs ably demonstrated
the, fallacy'of the. position taken by
the'Alberta government. Sec. Treasurer Carter, also spoke on the   mat-

Whereas -it has been .drawn* to our
' attention, tlirough the'columns of the"
press that an. order' iri council „ has
been passed, whereby, the machine
. runners in the coal mines in Alberta
are exempt from the application of the
Coal Mines Act of 1908, and ~
'. Whereas, the Coal Mines Act of 1903'
provides in sec- 3, the Lieutenant-
Governor in Council may, in the event
of great emergency, or" of any grave
economic disturbance due to the demand for coal exceeding'the ^supply
available at the time, by order in the
-council suspend the operation of this
act to such an extent, and for such
a period as may be named in the order
either as respects all coal Amines or
any class of coal mines; and
, Whereas the conditions prevailing
at this time .in the, Domestic , coal
mines of Alberta.do not presage any
shortage of-domestic coal, and"1 ■-
Whereas there are now.a large numv
ber,of= machine runners at present in1
the. mines working at employment
other than that of machine, running,
owing to the fact that there are more
than sufficient men to handle! that
class of employment, we, the members
of Royal Local .No.- 1959. U. M. W.
"of A.,, do hereby  '      ■"•*..
Resolve: "That we will make strenuous efforts tb offset any attempt on
the part of the Coal operators of Alberta to enforce longer hours/of labor
upon the mine < workers of Alberta,
which same action, is made .possible
by the • aforementioned order in council and be it further resolved: •
That '"copies of'this resolution- be
sent'to'the premier of Alberta, and
the members of tho legislative- assembly .for, Lethbridge city, Lethbridge
and Rocky Mountain constituencies.".
On or about September 1st the Fernie Philharmonic society will meet
•for reorganization purposes. The success of last year's concert has lent a
big incentive to the ^society, and a
great deal of ambitious music is plan-
led. , Mrs. Stevenson, the directress
of last year's production is expected
in Fernie by September 1st, and it is
hoped that she can again be induced
to take up the work of the society.' It
is likely that the membership fee will
be done away with, and each member
buy the'musical numbers decided upon.' * Mr. R, R. Webb, the secretary

Cranbrook Herald: The Moyie hotel
was damaged by fire last night to the
extent of almost $4,000. Between the
fire and the water used In putting it
out a tremendous amount of damage
,was done. ,, The fire started about
10.30 o'clock and it is presumed that
it caught from a .lighted match or a
lighted cigar stub thrown .n between
the hotel and the log building near^the
side of it. The flames crept up the
walls and caught in the second story,
and then through to the attic. The
fire brigade did very good work and it
was due to their heroic efforts that the
building was saved from total destruction. We'understand there is sufficient insurance to cover tho loss by the
fire. .'  •        "

*.T. .B.  Struthers, the proprietor of
the "Fair" store, that was burned out
on the night of the 17th, was arrested
last'night at about   6.30   by   Chief
Clerke and lodged in the city jail on
a charge of incendiarism in connection
with the conflagration. Fire Chief McDougall considered the circumstances
rather suspicious the night of the fire
and on making further enquiries the
next -morning,  he so  informed    Mr.
Struthers.     ,The consequence     was
that Mr. Rankin, who was in the city
doing some adjusting for a Vancouver
house, asked that Mr.  Struthers   be
called before a jury, and examined as
to theincidents relative to the fire.
This was accordingly done and a jury
was selected on Wednesday to inquire
into  the  circumstances.   They  went
down to view tlie premises and after
a very thorough inspection and considerable cross tangled evidence, they adjourned until Thursday.
Thursday's session was taken up
with practically a repetition of the
former evidence and nothing very definite was arrived at.
A number of witnesses were summoned for Friday and on being examined brought forth some evidence partly
in contradiction of Mr. Struther's
statements of the two'previous-days.
After a long 'session the, case was left
in the hands-,of the jury. They were
only out about twenty minutes when

What appcaerd to be the most sus   -

Mr.   Struthers  applied  for  an  extra ■

evidence brought    forward  indicated
that the stock was much lower at that*
time than any other period since the
store was first insured.      According
to'Mr.  Struthers own valuation   his
stock only amounted .to some   $803.
• All these circumstances' combined
led to the.arrest of Struthers as'above

If I should find your fortune in a song

Now would you wish of roses red   a
dewy spray,
Or golden  crown?
Your need is; mine, else loves philosophy were vain, • 0

How  shall  my  strength,    of joy  or
peace, youi* loss regain '
To comfort you?
If I should find    your fortune In a
slum's despair,       '   '    ,
A pawn to lust
Could you the courage and the consecration wear
That  rescue must?
Soul calls to soul out of the shame of
jungle's deep-
Were   this  your  fate .
Would you, enveloped in all slime and
sorrow   weep   ,
^ If I should wait?
If  1, should find   your  fortune  in a
. garden's joy,
One summer day
Would  yon, forgetting high  renown;'
and pride, employ
My humbler way?
The earth is kind. Brings balm to heal
whatever pain
Your ilfe may bear.
, For  every  loss  a  garden  has  some
precious gain
For you a shave?

■ With'these facts in mind, our conclusion is obvious. The working class-
has' an agency, ready to their hands,
which will conserve their interests as
th'e old parties are'doing for their masters .' ", , ;
This is the Socialist party. When
the working, class attains political power—-that is when their own-party,
the Socialist party, assumes thc reins
of government—laws will bo made,
laws will be Interpreted in the inter
ests of the working class. ,and not
until then.
When the workers, have had enough
of "capitalism they can through their
political power, abolish the wholo system wllh its wage slavery "nm! attendant horrors.
Will you do it? Will you como soon

Commenting bn how the poor consumer is going to-be robbed through
the tariff bill just*passed, the.Saturday Evening Post . says editorially—
''That' any Republican Senator should
blush at being called a Democrat, or
a Democratic one grow restive whon
labeled a Republican, is strange Indeed, when it is so perfectly obvious
that tho two parties are merely different devices used by tho same men
for milking the same' cow. To suppose that those men care particularly
about the dovlco is absurd, What thoy
care particularly about is the milk."
In those few,,sentences this, editor
gives tho whole capitalist game away,
Of course thoso men—meaning the ca
"■pknltst class—do,-, not caro whether
Republicans or Democrats control tho
political situation, for thoy own, control and fluanco both parties. .This

actions declared justifiable by a magistrate and applauded in a coair* room
provided- that the men he si ruck Was
"only a nigger,' is ono of - he latest,
facts established according, to our American sense of justice. . .:
There was' atime when our revolutionary fathers \vere proud of having
established in this country a spirit of
freedom and equality witli justice to
all and privileges to none.   '   '
'When slavery became a glaring evil
in, this, country,'the truly proressivo
point out that our entire republican institutions, were a farce and our boast
of liberty and equality a lie, as long,as
the "stars and stripes'waved, over an
entire race of slaves. - ' -
Slavery was abolished. The black
rfian was not only declared' equal before the law with the white man, but
was also granted'full citizenship., But
still the black man continues to be despised and treated as the one timo
slave; indeed, in many respects ho is
treated worse than in slavery day's,
for he is no man's property now. Ills
.death means no economic loss to any
member of the master race. He may
not resent thc white man's Insults and
the white man's blows. His honor, as
another judgo recently docldod, is not
equal to that of tho white man. He is
oppressed In tho north nnd forcibly
disfranchised *in the south, He Is Instilled, hnrrnsscil, persecuted everywhere.
If ho Is only suspected of a crimo,
11 crime which In many cases a while
man committed, tho white peoplo In
whoso midst he lives demonstrate to
him their superior civilization by resorting to tlio gruesome custom of tho
dark ages, of seizing their victim,
without trial, without giving him tho
benefit of-doubt, and burning him
nllvo, Verily our republican institutions are still a farco, our boasl of
liberty and orpinHly Is still n startling

* A degenerate 'of the underworld,
driven to crime by hereditary arid environment, commits a murder. In an
incredibly short time he is tried, convicted and inarched off to the electric
chair' or gallows.
A degenerate off spring of a millionaire, with a record of vice, becomes a
cold blooded murderer. A lengthy expensive, sensational trial takes place,
in which nledicnl and IcTgal authorities
combine to prove that the criminal is
insane,--and therefore not responsible
for his crime, and twelve months lator
the samo authorities'come to prove
that he is sane again and should bo
set at liberty.    > '
It is not. only the color of a man's
skin that determines the treatment accorded to him in this "land of'the
brave and a the free,' 4 but also, and
especially the class to which he belongs. When Senator William ,T. Stone
of Missouri —let his name be remembered in disgrace—said "I did not
strike a man; I slapped a riigger," he
was not only despising the man with
the black-skin, he was despising the
man who was doing menial' service.
If the "nigger" had happened to be an
oirental prince visiting the'States in
royal style with plenty of money in his
purse and official ' connection's at
Washington this same senator- Wll*
liam .T. Stone would probably have
fawned upon him.'
In the, same disgracing' manner in
which Senator Stone said'"only a nigger," I once heard a rich young' lady
on an ocean steamer 'say "only a
stoker" when a poor young fellow died
at sea from heart i-stroke as a result
of his hard, prolonged ulabor.> And yet
she could not have crossed,the ocean
without the social service of that stoker arid. without, the • services of the
waiter-in the Pullman car Senator AV
Stone would have had to learn to help
himself. , ' ■ <_,
, It is the poor man, the man who
"has neither money ,nor 'friends" who
is looked down on in* the" present soc-
ial order, and if you happen lo be a
poor man and' a colored man besides
so much the worse for you.
Byt remember, my, colored brethren
you, who bear the double yoke of your
despised race and your oppressed class
remember that there is a large organization of men and women in this
country into which vyou will be re*
celved. as an equal, provided that you
understand and approve of' Its alms
and objects, where race prejudice is as
thoroughly obliterated as sox prejudice, and where your- whito fellow
'toiler will take'you by the hand and
call you comrade.
This organization Is' the Socialist
Socialists strive to bring about ti
state of society in which ovory man

whicli thoro will be work for.all," and

stale of society In whleh tlio worth of
a human being will not be measured
by tho color of hin sicli*-., nor by tho size

Crew of Bark Erroll jh bad
7 VICTORIA, B.C.,. Aug. 28—Australian newspapers received, by the. Ma-
kuria, tell many horrible* features of
the-wreck of ,the Norwegian'* bark
Erroll, at Middleton. reef and of how
some of-the survivors sought to drink
the blood oof the captain's "children,
after he and the mate were drowned
in the presence of, his family."   '
... Anders Lorence, one of fWe emaciated seamen, rescued by the steamer
Tofua, said: "Some of the party want
• ed-to drink the blood of the captain's
children" but Jensen stopped them and
the mother threw their bodies in the
sea.". - -     -    : ' '.
Few more tragic "tales of tho sea are
on   record than that brought" by the
• steamer Makuria which struck Middleton Reef June 18th. The suffering
and tragedies of the survivors we're
briefly,described by cable.     z r '   „
Five renjained of twenty two when
the.Tofu took them off, so emaciated
from- thirst and'starvation that they
. had to be carried on board the steamer.    .        *     -      _     _   . ,      -.,7 ..-.'.
The Makura brought detailed stories
of their"vain struggle to find-water on
, the'reef, theii-.unsuccessful search for
provisions and for the life boat maintained, there prior to 1882, 'which the
sailing   direction*-), stated to exist, of,
;*. their final abandonment of hope arid
subsequent delirium.     "-*   ' '*'
, Captain * Anderson and' the second
mate were drowned while building a
raft,-, while his wife and •' 'children
looked on, wringing their hands in
grief. ' '.'..'.. .
• Finally after others had succumbed
arid the others' were weak from starvation the captains wife drowned her
four children under .the impression
that the survivors -were- planning to
resort to cannibalism arid she followed
her four, children arid her husband
into the waves. -, /y
■   The five "survivors were too far gone
Ho talk,much of their sufferings: Pat-
' rick Palmer, an American ,who joined
the ship at Cocmimbo, said: "Five of
us got away on a raft. We went all
over .the reef in search of'water, but
found none, and one'of the party .died
on the reef. We had s.ome difficulty
in building the'raft,-and the captain
.and'the secondvmate"both'got drown-

The moral of this story may be that
it'is better to heed the warnings of
the.'still small voice' before it is driven to the use of the telephone, so Fernie office men beware.   7       ** a'
A New York lawyer, gazing idly, out
of his window, saw "a sight in an office
across,the street'that"made him1 rub
his eyes and look, again. Yes, there
was no doubt about, it. The ^ pretty
stenographer was sitting upon the lap
of the gentleman. The lawyer noticed
the name, that was lettered on the
window and then-searched in the' telephone book. Still keeping his eye on
the scene across tho street he called
the* gentleman up. In a few minutes he saw him start violently and
take,-,down the .receiver. .- ...
■ "Yes," said the lawyer, through the
telephone "I should think you would
start."'* ,       .     '.,   , ,  " -
The-victim .whisked his arm from
Its former position and began to stammer something.   7        \     "
,"Yes,' continued the lawyer severely
"I think you'd better take'that' arm
away." And while you are about it
as long'as there seems to be plenty of
chairs in the room "
The victim brushed the lady from
his lap rather roughly it is to-be feared. "Who—who "the devil-Is this anyhow?" he managed to sputter.
,'T" answered the lawyer in'deep, impressive tones, "am your conscience!"
And then- he hung up.—Everybody's

- "VANCOUVER,' 3. C. Aug.. 27— At
this morning's session of the timber
and forestry commission there was an
attempt:to discover what was actually
the reason for the preference for Dominion tjmber licenses over' provincial licenses,- and it appears from the
defence of.Mr. T. F. Patterson' of
the' Lumber company that there is a
dread that;the future government of
this' particular province may be confiscatory.      '     • ■

MONTREAL, Aug. 27— There was
another interesting session of the royal commission yesterday when the
witness was Rodolphe Brunet, the
gentleman, who secured contracts for
which rhe was often not ,the lowest
bidder.   ' --;
.Mr. Brunet was invited by Mr. Perron'to explain his good fortune. According to Mr. Brunet, English contractors for the' last severity five or
more years havo been. obtaining a
large proportion of the city contracts.
As a French Canadian this pained
him greatly, and he had gone to tho
rescue of his nationality nnd had
patriotically secured the lion's share
of the jobs  which a were  then being
■*■    . ' '
given out.
Then Mr.-Perron "pointed out that
he had been receiving commissions
from English firms and asked him
how.he reconciled this with the idea
that he was" in business merely' for
the glory of his nationality and to
see that French Canadians got a good
part of the work.
Mr. Brunet's reply-was that these
commissions * received from English
firms for securing tenders were merely a matter of business in which patriotism cut no figure with him at'any

and reared iri short-sightedness.
The whole trend of'modem commercialism and
industrialism is unquestionably-toward concentration of forces, the eliminating of "all features that
would tend" to decrease thc mobility of,- working
arrangements, and the. discarding of 'methods not
.productive.of better mutual relations.  " '
In the religious world the same holds true.
The best .thinkers and the most prominent leaders
of the great religious bodies have time after time
convened, not in,a manner of mere formalism, but
for the specific, purpose of trying to reach some
understanding which would, serve as a basis for
uniting several of the various religious factions.

reasons which inspired such action.      ' "   *■

on labor matters is not known, and its rather amusing antics in jockeying 1o become the mouthpiece
of a certnhi coterie iu labor (?) circles is laughable
if not pitiable.
The U. M. W. oil A., in common with nil other
bodies of such great extent ancl scope, is open to
criticism; its most ardent adherents rocogni/.c tlie
mistakes of the past, and seek in iili good faith to
remedy them—but the remedy is'not in the foisting
'. of anothor body on the working communities of
the west, coupled will) the Kiilisuqui-nt poniplicnt-

The latest attempt of the Coal Operators Asso-
ciation to reduce the wages of the', miners has been
fired through the.Alberta government. The article
explaining the matter will be found on page one.
It appears that while there are more than enough
machine runners the government^.wants to force
the men to work more than eight hours a day. They
are trying to make out that there is likely.to be
a shortage'of coal'around Alberta, but'-while tlie
production could be increased—yes doubled' or
trebled—by the employment of more men at. each
of the? mines, it is certainly an unjust thing to' try
and force a few men to work', more than-eight hours
a day. ■ The country from ocean to ocean is full
of unemployed men, and the coal production could
be increased to as much as will be needed without
slicing up the already low wages of the'few men
who are daily toiling and helping to keep' the idle
brothers from starvation.   „
Now that the editor of the Free Press has de
livered himself on the Sunday base' ball question
the issue can be considered as settled, and all lesser
lights will please go out.

they, can do things as cheaply as-Timothy can.- -\~ ■ ta ,

(Ed. Note—The fact that-ah overcharge, if it can be called such, was
made by a'drug store, does not. alter

not pay.any rents; any taxes, or hny-
the growth of our city.-' Even in Winnipeg, he pays all his- help low wages.
Then again, all his business ,is absolutely a cash proposition,*.whereas the

often lose some heavy accounts altogether.:, ciThe paltry Jlttle sum that
Eaton's sent In to help the fire suff*'

No, Mr. Shell Out and others-'in /Fernie and other places, give your local
merchant the same chance, and the
sniiio cash as you give to Eaton's and
you will fljid that thoy can do as well

Workers of America would not, join .the

influence,to get his countrymen to be
true .to the'U. M..W. of AV A short
time ago John'1 Figner had met Bulko
on. th,e street and Bulko,-had -warned
Figner to look out for him. aWednesday
night as John Figner *was 'on his way
home accompanied by. Audro Lukco, a
man who is organizing here, he was
set upon when only a few yards from
the ^boarding house where ho stayed.
Three men assaulted him, , the first
took him' by the coat,' the second one
struck him on the side of tlie neck,
and then John Bulko knocked him to
the floor. It is terrible to contemplate
what might have "happened had not
Lukco been there ■ to take the part of
Figner. • During thc evidence Figner
was asked if he had felt tho effects of
the blows he, received, he said his
head had been effected ever,-since. It
will .be remembered by many of Flg-
ner's friends that he was in a railway
smash'up a few months ago. These
points,were clearly brought.out by the
chief' constable of Coleman in the evidence. . He also showed how a chance
blow might have beon struck on that
part of Fignei-'s head that was ,hurt In
tho smash up and murder might have
been done.. ,
* The clilof constable in summing up
advised that a fine bo Imposed upon
Bulko's friends, and„that Bulko be .fined iind given forty eight hours to get
out of town for fear something serious
might occur In the future.
Bulko's- colleagues wero fined $2.50
and costs of court,' $.*' each, and- John
Bulko was fined the «ame amount with
costs and was bouml over to keep the
peace for ono year,' on a surely of two
hundred dollars. -       „        .

< -The most important match of ■ the
league series was brought off at Mich-
el-last Saturday, and resulted in'a win
for Coal Creek by the narrow" margin
of one goal. The winning of this
game placescCoal Creok In the-proud
position of league, champions for the
present season. They are three points
ahead of their nearest rivals for an
equal number of games played, and
there is no combination of circumstances that can arise which would displace them at. the head of the table.
We are informed that- the Michel club
have "protested tho game they lost to
Frank on ■ the' ground that' Frank had
played an ineligible man, but we think
this will not affect the championship
for a replay is.' never allowed for an
lnfringment of'this kind.
. The usual procedure is to penalize
the club violating this law by deducting a certain-number of points from
their total.,   ■
This method is" adopted'in all of the
old;country.leagues and the same rule
was followed«in-the Crfov/s Nest Pass
League three seasons'ago in the case of
Coleman- vs Coal Creek. . ' '
' We. may Inform the readers of this
column- that Coal Creek are not new
to championship "honors,'." they having
.succeeded* in-oaptur!ne-tlie-trophy-ev=-
ery year since they entered the competition with'the'exception of last, year
when tbe Michel club secured the honor. The performance, of the club this
season Is, remarkable for tho fact that
the. team'is-made up of light' weiglits.
With the exception of Jack Manning
there is not a heavy weight In the
team, and the halves and forwards.of
tho side might be termed midgets. So
the triumph of the club on this .occasion Is really the reward due to askllful
side, ' -
Another league gamo was arranged
lo tako place, last Saturday between tho
Frank nnd Coleman clubs, but on the
day of tho game a friendly was substituted In Its stead, Tho reason given
for the alteration was that the clubs
wished to play a .benefit for Fraser of
Coleman. The result ot the-.game Is
nol to hand, but we hope Mr, Fraser
would profli considerably by tho proceeds .

-  Half time CoarCreek l, MIchel'.O:-.
Considering'the'-strong breeze that
was blowing. Coal Creek were none too
safe with only, a lead of .one goal and
it was long odds on Michel beating
this score' in the opening-of a the sec-
onc) half. The game was quiet at the
opening,and play was confined to mid-
field for a while. ■ Michel was first
to,become dangerous, but Murray shot
past1 from a good opening. From ,the
goal kick Michel returned to the at-
taclc'and a corner was gained off Swee-
nlo, but Weaver*• placed behind. Hartwell and Joinson were next prominent
anil Mason kicked into touch, to clear.
From the throw in Manning got away
but his final shot went past. Gomme
got possession from the goal kick and
passed to .Millet, who shot over the
bar, A.little later, tho same player
had a fino shot whicli Horrocks Just
succeeded In stopping but was forced
to give away a corner to clear. This
proved abortive and play' was transferred to midfield. • Phoenix from a
forward pass by Sweonle got well awav
but his' parting shot lacked sting anil
Jolce had no difficulty in clearing.
Contrary to general expectations Michel did not monopolize' plav this half,
Coal Creek having quite a "good share
of the -game. This was partlv accounted for by the fact that the. high
wind had .lessened, but the excellent
defence by Coal Creok halfs and backs
was the main factor ot Michel's inefi
I'ectivenoss. °
Millet^ from whom'much was.expect
ed ivas well held'down- by Parnell, and
Johnstone accounted for Barnes, who
wns. not so effective asusaul. About
mlil way through this half Mlchol had
a, lino opportunity to score. McQueen
"Sont In a fine cross' right across goal,
but Barnes headed past. Manning nearly added a second' score for the Creek;
from a well placed corner by Hartwell, but he headed'the ball just over
the bar. Michel were exhibiting a
great anxiety-'to score as -timo .approached and endeavored to rush the
Creek defence. - Harry Allan was a
valuable player to his side at this time
his -coaching of the' younger players
did much, to keep Michel out. -Darkness was now settling down and it was
hard to follojjJ the play. The game
In the closing minutes was fought- out
in midfield, and when the whistle blew
Coal Creek .were still leading. Final
result Coal Creek 1, Michel O.Coal Creek on' the day's play were
the better team and deserved to win.
Tlieir defence was simply unbeatable,
and the forward-especially in the'first
half,, played * good football, Hartwell
and Manning being always prominent.
Michel was well served by their- defence, but the forwards were disappointing and seemed to be easily beaten.

PARIS, France, Aug. 27—A sudden
announcement that a public beheading
would take place at 4.30 o'clock th '*
morning ih ti o" Boulevard fronting
the Sante prison created a sensation
tn Paris which has not seou an.execution in fifteen jears. Immediately nn
immense crowd gathered which whs
kept back by guards. Parisian sentiment has long, been opposed to,, public
executions for In the past they were
always accompanied by scandalous
scene of revelry,
i The victim was a butcher 23 years
of age,-; who in 1908 stabbed his mother, and that not resulting in death,
finished the deed by strangulation.
The motive was robbery. The affair
came off on time., -   ,.
The victim =was seized and thrown
under the knife. "A flash and all
was oyer. The crowd then dispersed

Will Quit Work Unless an
Increase of Ten Cents
is Given Them.
■ (Winnipeg Free Press)   .
At a crowded meeting of the United
Carpenters of Winnipeg and. district,
held in Trades hall lust night various
communications from the building exchange were read and considered by
the; men.
A lengthy discussion followed. The
ultimatum of the huilders was in effect that they did not propose to make
any definite agreement with the' carpenters union until about 1910.
Indignation was expressed on all
sides that the carpenters had been repeatedly ignored in their suggestions
since January, 1907, when ah agreement similar to the one now presented
was submitted.
Cost   of   Living   Increased
It was pointed out that it was over
five years 'Since there had been any,
increase in tho carpenters wages, notwithstanding the fact that the cost of
living had increased in every detail
-in that. time.
-It was also pointed out that heavy
expenses were incurred by carpenters
jn supplying themselves with necessary tools, anil the short season for
work open to them made an increase
over the present rate of 35 cents a
It was unanimously agreed to lake
steps lo enforce a new agreement,
which demands an increase to 45 cts.
an hour.
It is understood that work is 7.0
cease- tonight on the buildings and
works, the contractors for'which fail
to sign the .agreement demanded by
the union.
A Lecture Upon Naval Defense
From Hon. George E.
. HALIFAX, Aug. 26—Hon.' G. B., Foster addressed a large audience tonight
delivering a stirring non-partison afl-
The Winnipeg Voice has the- following about the-building-trades conditions of that city:'     . \
The  Sheet ^Metal  Workers
The. Sheet Metal Workers' strike is'
over. The union" has .secured agreements with a sufficient number 'of
employers to put all. its members, at
work again.
On the other hand the trouble may
not be over. The-firms which wished
to work with the Sheet Metal Workers union had to get out of .the Builders exchange, and those inside are
operating with non-union labor. When
the time comes to penalize the outside
men, or to start oh new jobs, it will
be found that the road to conflict has
been;greased by a number of, building
contractors who are very largely responsible for the antagonisms which
have existed in the building trades of
the city.
The Electrical Workers
The Electrical Workers strike also
does not appear to .be worrying the
unionists much. Many of the men are
now employed under satisfactory conditions, but other firms arc endeavoring to got along' without° practical
men until such time as a conclusion
Is reached.
The point at issue now is at to
when a schedule should expire. Tho
union has withdrawn its consent to a
40c scale and. insists on 421-2 and
looks now like making good Its position.
In this matter also the builders exchange also appears as a party dabbling and procrastinating. What this
means, in reality is that an experiment
is being tried out which takes a littlo
time*. ■
An effort is being made to get men
to come into the city under strikebreaking conditions' and contract's.
Not' many have been secured, hut a
few have and some of these are men
whose vanity is tickled hy being permitted to sign a contract which terms
them electricians; it is about the closest connection which  they, have yet
1 *•
made with the business. We have
seen a copy of these contracts. It is
the regulation v kind—one which can
be made to terminate at the pleasure
of the boss.
Probably it was one of those-1 contract mechanics who* caused the trouble at Happyland... There was an attempt in the papers to blame the union
for the fracas, biit it was a non-union
expert whose ■ innocence caused the
trouble. ,
It seems that three arc lights .were
put Qn the one circuit.and the light
failed.      The gentleman was getting
- -'His topic was some aspects of Can
adian  nationality, with special -reference to naval defence and Canada's
relation to the empire.    •
Mr. Foster traced the marvellous
development o£ Canda as a nation
since Confederation. He pointed to
the bogies, as he called thom, that Ca-
,nada hnd passed and he felt the glorious possibilities of the future. What
wc should strive for was Independence
as a part of great alliesv, in a world
wide power.
Canada's duty and privllego to take
a., part in. the defence of the empire
was eloquently portrayed. In closing,
Mr. Foster dwelt strongly on tho foolishness of the prevalent cry against
Tho bloodiest wars of the world occurred In the lust fifty yonrs. We
must have a sharo ln tho militarism of
tho world or be brushed aside, We
must be armed or wo .will bo trampled upon.
Hundreds Drowned in the
Montevideo   Harbor
When Boats Met.
* MONTEVIDEO; Aug. 27—In a driving rainstorm about six o'clock this
morning the Argentine excursion steamer Calumbian and the North German Lloyd-' steamer Schlesien collided
at the entrance of Montevideo harbor, « 1
i       i i.
The Calumbian was entering port—
the Schlesien was outward bound'for
Bremen. The Calumbian's" bow was
crushed in and she- sank almost immediately.      * .     ''
Between ono hundred and fifty and
two hundred passengers were killed or
drowned, as a result of the accident.
The Calumbian carried about two lum-
1 -*- 4
dred passengers and a crew of forty
eight men.      ,   ■ '    *
Most of the passengers wero asleep
at the time and a panic followed the
crash. Almost immediately small
boats put out to the sinking steamer,
but the work of rescue was rendered
very dangerous by the high sea that
was running. About seventy persons
were taken into the boats and brought
ashore. -Most of the dead are women' and children.
A majority of the survivors are
men and almost every'one of the crew
escaped. <■

her courage nor her cunning'forsook
her,* She waved the document away.
"I can-take your woi'd, captain ?. You're
making no mistake today? I really am
Baroness Dobrava—not somebody else
■With whom you have a feud?". She
laughed at him gayly and went ■ on:
"Well, I'm ready: I'm "dressed for a
ride, and I'll,ride with you Immediately.' In two minutes we'll be off;" She.
saw n groom in tho road staring at tho.
troopers nndcnlled to him to bring her
a horse.        . -
This prompt obedience, by no means
suited Mlstltch's book. It forced, hhn
either to show, his hand or to ride off
awllh Sophy, leaving the prince to his
devices, and, in a little while, to his revenge, a ■ , '
' "Imustn't hurry you. You have some
preparations"---- ■-.    •
* "None," said Sophy. Her horse was
led out Into the road., ' . jj .
"You'll at least .desire to acquaint his
royal highness"—      •
"Not at all, necessary. Baron von
Hollbrandt can do that later on." ■ ,__
. Mistiteh looked puzzled. Sophy smil-'
ed. Her Intuition had been right The
attack on her was a feint, her arrest a*
blind. i The prince was'the'real object
of the move. She stepped down toward
"I see my horse is ready. - We can
start at once, captain;" she said.*
. /'I'm   Instructed  to   express  to  the
prince regret that it should be neces-'
tsary"—      , ■  ,  ".       „   .,
.- "The regret will be conveyed,to him.
Come, captain!"        ■.'-*',-
But Mistiteh barred her way.
• "His royal highness is in the castle?"
lie asked.. His voice grew.angry now.
Ho feared the great stroke hail failed.
He saw that Sophy .'played with him.
How would he and his escort look riding back to Slavna- with a nothing'.to
show for their journey save the capture of one unresisting woman—a wo-
man'whom they.dared.not harm while
the prince remained free'and might become all powerful?
"If he had been you'd have known it
.by now, I think," smiled Sophy. " "No,
the prince isn't at the castle."
■ "I'll see that for myself!"  Mistiteh
■ cried, taking aLs'tep forward,
With a low laugh Sophy chew, aside,
passed him and ran down the causeway.' Ih an instant she darted between
the ranks of Mlstltch's men and reached
her-iior.se. The groom mounted hei-.
Sho looked up"to Mistiteh and called to.
hhn gayly: fc
' "Now for Slavna', captain!   And hurry or you'll be, left behind!'!
'   Her ,wlt was too quick for him. Max
-von Hollbrandt Durst out,laughing. Pe-
, ter Vasslp grinned.    ,    ,.
"What are you waiting for, captain?"
asked Max. "Your, prisoner's only too
anxious to go wltb you, you seo!"
''I'll'search tho chstlo.first!" ho cried
In a rage, which, made him forget bis

' Peter. Vnssip   sprang, forward aud
barred tlio way.    Mlstlteh raised his
mighty arm; but Sopby's voice rang
...out gnyly:, "...
"Nonsense, Peter! There's nothing to
conceal.   Let the captain pass,"
Her words stopped - Mlstlteh, Ho
fonrcd a trap. Max saw lt and mocked
him. "Don't bo nfrald, captain, Tnko
fifty men in with you, "The garrison
consists of a lndy ln bod, nn old man
and live female servants,!'
Sophy heard nnd laughed. Even tho
troopors began to Inugh now. Mlstlteh
stood on tbo top of tho cnuoowny, irresolute, baffled, furious,      '   »
But bohlnd his stupidity lay tho cunning nstutencss of Stafnltz, tho lo

there was time to intercept, him. time
to carry off Sophy and.the other inmates of the castle, send them back to
safety within the. walls of Volseni and
himself ride on to meet Miititch with
his mind at ease.-
Relying on Zerkovitch's information,
he' assumed that the troopers had not
.started from Slavna till 7- in the morn-
lng,-;.They had started at 6.' lie reck-'
oned nlso on- Zerkovitch's statement
that they were but fifty strong.' They
were a hundred? Yet,- had he known
thctruth, he couldnot have used more
haste, and lie would not have waited
for another man. He stayed to tell no
ii.au in Volsenl the news about his father except Lukovitch. But as his.
twenty rode out of the gate behind
dim he turned his head to Zorkovltch,
who trotted beside hlra, for Zerkovitch
neither could nor would rest -till the
game was played, and said, "Tell them
tbat the king is dead and. that I reign."
Zerkovitch whispered the news ,to tho
man next him, and It, ran along the
line. ■ A low, stern cheer, hardly more
than a murmured assurance'of loyalty
nnd service, came from the lips of the
men in sheepskins. , .''"■',    .
: Mlstlteh saw them' coming and turn-
_ed to his~ troop. He had time for a little speech, and Stafnitz had taught him
what, to say: "Men, you are sen-ants of
the king and of the king'only." Not
even the Prince of Slavna can command you' against tho king's' orders.
The king's orders are that we take
Baroness Dobrava to Slavna; no. matter who resists. If need be, these ordors stand even against the prince." ■ '
, Stafnltz's soldiers—the men he* petted, the" men who had felt the prince's
stern hand—were only too glad to hear
It. To strike for the king and.yet
against the hated prince—<lt was- a luxury,'a happy and unlooked for harmo-,
nizing of their -duty and their pleasure.
Their answering cheer, was loud and
It struck harsh on the ears of the advancing prince. His face grew hard
anil strained as* he heard the shouts
and saw the soiled body of men across
the'path, barring - access to his own
castle. And within a yard' or two of
their ranksby the side of the road sat
thb figure which he knew so well and
so ,well. loved. ^, •
1 Now. Mistiteh iplayed his card, that
move/in the game'.whlch Sophy's cool
submission to his demand had for the
'.moment, thwarted,. but "to which the
gave an opening, the opening which
Stafnitz had from the first'foreseen.
It would needVlittle to make the fiery
prince forget prudence when he was
face to face with Mistiteh. It was not
a safe game for Mistiteh • personally—'
both Stafnitz and he knew that—but
Captain Hercules wns confident He
would not be caught twice by the Vol-;
senl trick of sword! Tho satisfaction
of his revenge and the unstinted rewards thnt his colonel offered made it
worth bis whilo to accept-.tbo'rlsk nnd
rendered it grateful to his heart
Sophy snt smiling. She would fain
havo averted i the encounter and hnd
shaped her maneuvers to that end, It
was not lo be so, it seemed. ' Now, she
did not doubt monseigncur's .'success,
hut sho wished thnt Zorkovltch had
.■jot reached Volsenl so quickly; that
the prince had staved behind his walls,
till his plnns were ready,, nnd that sho

tho king, trusting to her face, hor
tongue, her courage nnd tho star of her
own-fortune. Novor had hor buoyant

On the top of the cnusowny Mnx von

Some men seem to think that the
United Mine Workers.'organization is
permeated with discord and dissension
and that the international president is
no longer a leader "able to guide the
destinies of the organization.  ,
If the mine workers of, tho country
would inquire where" the dissension
exists they might be enlightened as
to the real facts.' "it is well known
that a certain gentleman in New York
along with a few others, have been
sorely disappointed that T. L.'Lewis
■ever—su'ceeeded-to-lnb^-presidcnci--ofthe United Mine Workers. * It is
from tins source that the alleged dissension ■ emanates.   '    •■. ,       ,   *
It is a romarkablo thing for-the.United Mine Workers-to have a larger
paid up membership during the last
month than it has had for any July
month in the history ot the organization.' Consider this wllh the terrible
depression that, has existed and it
speaks volumes In behalf of the national officers of tho United Mine Workers of America.
If would be well for tho mine workors of the country to Intelligently nn-
nlyzo tne work of tho International pre-
trying to create dissension In the
ranks. There is work for all :.ii
build up the organization, and with a
united effort wonders can be accom
plished in the way of strengihe'i'ng •
the organization.
One year ngo ,last April there,,was,
lio interstate agreement and the prospects for thc mine workers of the en-
tiro country- looked gloomy. , The international president at that time was
not in any .manner disheartened but
proceeded to re-establish the inter- '
state joint convention, and his success,
at that time in securing a two years'
contract is now realized to have ,been
a wise act". If contracts were negotiated this year no one could predict
the outcome. -   -
The mine, worfters, should* remember that next year wage contracts expire and„ it .will need the .intelligence
of the most cxperienced'men In. tho
organization to .secure agreements'
that will be reasonably satisfactory to
i.he members of the United ' Mine -"
Workers. 7 '.
Can this work best be done by men
of practical experience and a_ thorough •
knowledge    ofthe    mining "industry
throughout thc country, or can it best-
be done by men of limited knowledge
and whoso sole desire seems to be" to *
control tlie organization rather than-
to defend and protect the interests of"
the mino workors?—Industrial'Index.

On Monday night the Scouts demonstrated to the Coal Company what
a,great majority,of the fans had long
ago concluded: that the team' of the
Coalers was* not good enough to represent the city as champion's of the
season of 1909. - A good sized crowd
-was present, and the favorites of the
contending teams took advantage, of
the last game to get their fill of root-,
ing.^ '
Both teams had cut out the foreign
element, aud as a result 18 homesters
responded to the umpire's call to play
ball. Dr. J; Wriglesworth' occupied
the box seat,in the centre of thesdla-
mond, and dealt out decisions impartially,,, and satisfied all but a few of
the players,- whose ability for .making
themselves' foolish hy threatening to
Jack Johnstonize the umpire, far exceeds their capacity as ball players.
Quinlan and White were the tossers
and receivers for the Coal Co., aiid
were touched,up frequently—13 times
were they walloped for an tassortment'
of singles and doubles, many of them
■well stacked and coming when hits
meant runs.  ' '      „     •„
Spilman took the slab for the winners, and in that post played a good,
consistent game,-, at- no time losing
his head, although fairly bombarded
by all-sorts of jests, some" of„them
of such ■ a ■ personal , nature that ' no
good sport would resort - to them.
, Spilman was fortunate,in having his
hits well scattered. 7 Con, Whelan had

The features of the game were undoubtedly with the Scouts fielding,
which was at all times clean and fast.-

tlie standard of tlie previous, week, was
good' enoupj'-i to draw aud that result
would have been a better indication of
the ruivof the play. Still we think it
better for the- game that the honors
should go round and for that, reason the
Frank club's victory should give general satisfaction. Thoy are a strong-
side and with a little improvement forward . should succeed in landing the
cup. Of course a few other clubs-wiU
have something to say to that and everything points to tlie games in the cup
competition providing some exciting encounters.
The two other games' in. the first
round of tiie competition did not take
place. Bellevue scratched to Coleman,
and Michel granted the Fernie club an
extension of time. There is a- probability,of that game taking place today.

SEATTLE, S-.pt. 2—Since June it
is estimated thai the lias destroyed
timber to the amoun ot $5,000,000 ia
this state. * Other parts of the northwest have suffered In equal degree and
the Forest Fire Association'is making
another appeal for great caution' .in
the wooded district.
Every thousand feet of limber burned means a loss of ?S in Nvages to the
community. -, Timber means pay
checks, to support" all other industries. During tho diy season no fires
should be started in wooded districts
unless they are carefully watched.-In
all cases where fires are found,they
-should be put out at once.
Call on thc fire Nvarden for assist-
yearsfom* billion feet of lumber have
been destroyed by fire. ' This is a lamentable waste of one of the state's
greatest natural resources.

Most Destructive Storm of Years-
Overflowing River Drowns
Hundreds of Peoftle
MEXICO CITY, .Mex., Aug. 29—The
Republic of .Mexico was swept by tho
most destructive storm in recent
years. Hundreds of persons lost
their lives from wind and flood and
property damage will run into the
millions. - One1 report places the monetary loss at $13,000,000 and special
despatches judicata that the death
list may go above the thousand mark
before very long.
Thc city of Monterey, with 70,000
population was inundated by the Santa Catalina river, swollen by a deluge of rain nnd the flow of waters
from the adjacent mountains. Abode
homes collapsed like papor boxes before thc swollen stream and thc inhabitants were drowned like so many
rats. Accompanying the flood at
, Monterey came a cyclone whicli added to the havoc. • Dispatches from
that place vary in their estimates of
casualties and damage. One message says Unit thc dead will number
one thousand.
Another is more conservative, and
places the list at SOO. Averaging the
conflicting reports it is shown that at
least 12,000 people are now homeless
in thc district. „
River Still Rising
The -deluge of rain still continues,
and the river is rising. The flood is
the greatest since 1881. The steel
works and smelters have been destroyed or badly damaged. There will
be no railway communication for at
least a* week. The society of -the
American' colony held a meting last
night in which resolution were passed
' to appeal to the United States and
other countries for aid.
-,   , Scene of  Desolation
, >iThe scene in the flood swept section of Monterey is one of' utter desolation. Four city blocks on tho
south side have utterly disappeared.
For 72 hours rain has fallen in, unprecedented volume throughout the sec-
dest dramas of human life. The deluge swept families asunder, some living, some dead, at far separated intervals along the new bed which the
raging river had cut for itself across
that portion of the city that once was
populated with homes. Many were
carried down the torrent in their
houses which had been uprooted from
(he foundations. And these were
drowned with hardly one single exception.
Last evening the disaster became a
spectacle, none the loss fascinating because of the terror that was in it. The
people crowded in the drenching rain
into the Karagosa and Hidalgo plazas
which are on high ground. From there
the Santa Catarina's quadrupled width
looked like the seething rapids of the
and starving -workingmen of ,,the country, members of the A. F. of,L., who
in many instances are compelled to
keep "their children from school    be-
II a .
cause of lack of clothing and food,
are contributing their funds, and that
they'may have had the honor of sending abroad a pampered guest of the
American -noney power. With such
extravagance can it be wondered at
when the rank and file must first
shoulder the expense, become f dissatisfied and charge that the „ greatest
benefit of the union falls to the highest office?
When we reflect for, a moment,and
compare the average labor leader of
today with the pioneer of the early
unions, who was the despised agitator
---the rabble—we can hardly get the
consent of our minds to believe that
the unions have the same purpose now
as then. What a travesty upon the
principles of the great labor movement! ,
As I .am writing this it occurs to
me that a year ago today were laid
to rest the last mortal remains of Geo.
A. Pettibone, the victim of the foulest
conspiracy that has ever blackened the
pages of history. Pettibone, the man
of unfaltering courage; who dared to
face a mine owners association and a
j citizens' alliance without a tremor,
was branded by u.e entire pres.* of
the land as the arch cievil of the Western Federation of Miners, the manufacturer of the famous Pettibone dope

The West Indian hurricane, which is i sary funds are available, the studies
believed-to have been the cause  of will be hampered.     Then again, the
the torrential rains, has passed inland
near the imouth of the Rio Grande,
and is rapidly diminishing in intensity.
It is reported here that an appeal
for aid has been sent out,from   Mont-j
tion and' the Santa Catarina rose gradually all day Friday, the crest of
the flood reaching Monterey ' early
At first it was thought there would
be no loss of life but. the water had a
height never before attained, and
swept buildings from their foundations by tho score.
• The electric light plant was put out
of business on Friday night and the
complete darkness was as much added horror." Cries of tho drowning
could be heard, biit iho'onlookers wore
powerless to render aid.
. Indescribable Scenes
Whon daylight, came tho scene was
Indescribable. All through the flooded
district groups could bo seen huddled
nn iho top of two storey buildings, entirely surrounded by u tumultuous,
soothing mass of water. Ono by ono
thoso houses disappeared with their
himinn freight. Nothing could llvo
in tho wild current of the Santa Catarina rivor which wus running at the
rate of twonty miles nn hour.

from the palace and the suburbs into
The streets -were quiet ' Soldiers occupied the corners of the ways. They
looked curiously at Markart's pale face
and disordered uniform. A dull roar
came from the direction of St. Michael's
square, and thither Markart aimed bis
course. He found all one side of the
square full of a dense crowd, swaying,
jostling, talking. On tho other side
troops were massed. In an open space
In f rontof the troops, facing the crowd,
was C.o 1 o n e 1
Stafnltz and by
his side a little
boy on a white
Mnrkart was
too .far off to
hear wbat Stafnltz said wben
he began to
speak—nay, the
cheers of the
troops behind
the colonel came
so sharp on his
words as almost
to, drown* them,
and after a moment's hesitation, as it seemed to Mark-
art, the crowd of people on the other
Bide of the square echoed back the acclamations of the soldiers.
All Countess Ellenburg's ambitions
were at stake.' For Stenovics and Stafnltz lt was a matter of life itself now,
so daringly had they raised their hands
against King Sergius., Countess Ellenburg had indeed prayed, and now prayed* all alone In a deserted palace, but
not one of the three had hesitated. At
the head of a united army, in the name
of a' united people, Stafnita had demanded the proclamation of young
Alexis as king. For an hour Stenovics
had made a show of demurring; then
he bowed to the national will. Tbat
night young Alexis enjoyed more honor
than he had asked of Lepage the valet
—he was called not prince, bnt majesty,
He was king In Slavna, and the first
ivoris to which they set his, childish
haiid was the proclamation of a state
of siege.
Slavna chose him willingly or because It must at tbe bidding of tbe
soldiers, but Volseni-was of another
mind. They would not have the German woman's .son to reign over them.
Into that faithful city the wounded
king threw,himself, with all his friends.
—The-body- of-M Istiteh-lay-all-day-and
all night by tbe wayside. Next morning at dawn the king's grooms came
back from Volseni and burled it nnder
a clump of trees by Ihe side of the lane
running down to Lake Talti. Their
curses were tbe only words spoken over
the grave, and they flattened the earth
level with the ground again that none
might know where tho man rested wbo
bad lifted bis bund against their master.
The king was carried to Volsenl sore
stricken. Tbey did not know whether
be-would live or die. He had a dangerous wound ln the lungs, and, to
make matters worse, the surgical skill
nvallablo at Volsenl was very primitive
But In that regard fortune brought
nld and brought also tb Sophy a strange
conjecture of the uow life with tho old.
Tbe landlord of the Inn sent word to
Lukovitch that two foreign gentlemen
had arrived at his house that after*
noon and that the passport of one of
them described him as a surgeon. The
landlord bad told lilm how things stood,
and he wan anxious to render help.
It was Basil Williamson. Dunstanbury and ho. accompanied by Henry
Brown,, Dunstnnhnry's servant, had
reached Volsenl Unit day on thoir re*
turn from n tour In tho Crimea and
around the shores of the sea of Azof.

book designed to recommend him as an
expert student of foreigu affairs. He
could hardly consider that these goings
on in Kravonia came-within the purview of a serious study of his subject,
but it was a pleasant, moonlit night,
the old- street was very quaint, the
crisis be had happened on bizarre and
amusing. lie smoked his cigar and
waited for Basil without impatience.
He had strolled a hundred yards
away and just turned,to loiter back
when he saw a figure come out of the
guardhouse, pause a,moment and then
advance slowly toward him. The
sheepskin cap and tunic made him
think at first that the stranger was one
of the Volsenlan levy. The next moment he saw the skirt. At once he
guessed that he was in the presence of
Baroness Dobrava, the heroine of the
piece, as he had called her in his own
mind and with a smile.
Evidently she meant to speak to him.
He threw away his cigar and walked
to meet her. As they drew near to each
other he raised his hat. Sophy bowed
gravely. Thus they met for the first
time since Sophy washed her lettuces
in the scullery at Morpinghnm nnd at
the young lord's bidding fetched Lorenzo the Magnificent a bone. This meeting was, however remotely, the result
of that Dunstanbury had started her
career on the road which had led her to
where she was.
"I've seen Mr. Williamson," she said,
"and he knows me now. But yon
don't yet, do you, Lord Dunstanbury?
And, anyhow, perhaps you*'wouldn't remember."
She had been a slip of a girl.wben he
first saw her, In a print frock, washing
lettuces. With a smile and a depreca
tory gesture he confessed his ignorance,
and his surprise. "Really, I'm afraid I
—I don't "I've been "such a traveler
and meet so many"— An acquaintance
with the Baroness. Dobrava was among
the last with which he would have
credited himself or perhaps, to speak
his true thoughts, charged his repute
"Mr. Williamson knew me almost directly—the moment I reminded him of
my,mark-"    She touched her cheek.
Dunstanbury  looked  more closely at
|, ber, a  vague  recollection stirring In
him.   Sophy's face was "very sad, yet
she smiled just a little as she added:
"I „,remember you so .well—and'your
dog  Lorenzo.    I'm   Sophy   Grouch of
companion.   Now do you remember?"
He stepped quickly up* to her, peered
Into her eyes and saw tbe red star.
"Good heavens."' he said, smiling at
her in an almost helpless way. "Well,
that Is curious!" ^
he added.   "So-,
phy Grouch!
And  you are-
Baroness Dobrava?"
"There's noth-
ing much ln
that" said Sophy. "I'll tell
you all about
that soon If we
have time. To*

If she lived and worked for Kravonia
it was for monseigneur's sake. Without him. what was Kravonia to her,
Such was her mood. Plainly she took
uo pains to conceal It from Dunstanbury. The next moment she turned to
him. with a smile. "You think 1 talk
strangely, saying," 'We'll do this and
that!' Yes, you must and it's suddenly become-strange to'me to say it—to
say it to you. because you've brought
back the old things to my mind, and all
this Is so out of keeping with the old
things—with Sophy Grouch and Julia
Robins und .Morpinghnm!' But until
you came It didn't seem strange. Everything that bas happened since I
came to this country seemed to leap up
to it—to bring it about naturally and irresistibly. 1 forgot till just now how
funny it must sound to you—and how
—how bad. I suppose. Well, you must
accustom yourself, to Kravonia.- It's
not Essex, you know."
"If the king lives?" he asked.
"I shnll be with mouseigneur if he
lives." she answered. *
Yes, it was strange. Yet already,
even now—when he had known her
again for half an hour, had seen her
and talked to her—gradually and insidiously it began to seem less strange,
less fantastic, more natural. Dunstanbury had to give himself a mental
shake to get back to Essex and to So-,

"You'll lie"-
"IIIs wife?" she interrupted. "Yes."
She smiled again—nay, almost laughed
"Thnt seems worst of all—worse than
anything else?"
Dunstanbury allowed himself to smile
too "Well, yes, of course that's true."
he snld. "Out of Kravonia anyhow
What's true in Kruvonla I really don't

"I suppose it's true in Kravonia, too
but whnt I tell you is monseigneur's

He looked hard at her. "You love

As my life, and more." said Sophy
At Inst Dunstanbury ceased to look

BOSTON, Sept, 2—Jim Flynn of
Boston won the decision ovor Sailor
Burko of Now York in tho final round
of 32 rounds of hard fighting nt the
armory tonight.
Morris Quatzman, an eleven year old
Windsor hoy has just died as the result
of a scratch on the wrist. Poison entered tho wound, which was caused hy
falling off a bicycle, and despite the
physicians the boy died. Such incidents as these—by no means infrequent
—ought to make people realize the
danger that may lie even in the-smallest flesh wound. '* ,,
Tako a simple illustration. When
a dirty knife, a rusty needle, a splinter
of dirty wood, a barbed wire fence, or
a thorn, scratches the hand, the latter
is inoculated with germs, of which the
air about us is full. Directly these
germs are introduced through the
breach in the skin, a battle royal ensues between them and certain organisms in our blood."
When the invading germs are too
strong for Nature's defences, in a few-
hours the finger will become hot and
throbbing. A little later the wound
may exhibit a whitish appearance   in
the' middle of the swelling and we
have what is known as a festering or
poisoned wound.
Tho way to-avoid such serious results is to cleanse the wound and apply Zam-Buk. Zam-Buk is a powerful yet painless germ killer, and when
applied to the broken skin is absorbed
inlo tho tissue, instantly destroying
the germs that spread disease and inflammation.
Tho flesh is thus soothed nnd purl-
fled, the wound mnde perfectly healthy
and nil poison and cause of festering
removed. Having dono this Zam-Buk
(hen proceeds lo heal tho wound or
soro wllh now healthy tissue, In_ a
quick, pninloss niul perfect mnnner.
Zam-Buk must not bo confused with
ordinary 'ointments. Zam-Buk Is a
unique preparation, possessing -intlHop-,
tic, soothing and healing qualities thla
are not found in any other, preparation.'
It is not only a unique healing balm,
but it is also a skin food. For all
skin diseases and injuries—cuts, and
bruises, burns, eczema, chafing, ulcers,-
ringworm etc., iL is without equal. It
is also used widely for piles, for which
it may be regarde as a specific. AH
druggists and stores cell at fifty cents

Toronto, for price.
