Hilliard Hotel and Opera
House Consumed—No
Loss of Life
. KMN0RA, Out., Oct. 28—The Hilliard hotel with the opera house adjoin
inging caught fire about 11.30 last
night and is now a heap' of ruins, tho
structure being almost entirely'gutted
despite1 the,efforts of tho fire brigade.
, Louis Hilliard is tlie proprietor, having built the hotel in 1898 on the site
of the old Hilliard hotel which, was
burned to the ground In the spring
of that year. It is thought that the
fire broke out through the 'scenery on
the opera house 'stage* becoming ignited.     A vaudeville company gave  ■ a
"* performance - here tonight and about
> 7 -**"
three   quarters of an. hour' after the
conclusion of the    performance ■ the
fire *was discovered.
There was a high wind, blowing from
the, south, and fanned by this the
flames quickly spread until the fire
practically enveloped the whole structure. The loss will be total although
It is understood that it is mostly ,cov-
, ered by insurance. The Hilliard hotel was one bf the best and most mo-
dern in town, and was situated in the
centre. ■ The opera house annex was
erected at considerable cost and it
capable of* seating about- six hundred
, people.     A large quantity, of the be
longings ofthe hotel were saved.

Fellow Workers::
The Fernie Electoral Riding ' has
been for the past eight years a strenuously contested sent?' At the provincial Election the workers lost the seat,
by some GO votes through the Liberals
deserting their; own 'candidate at tlie
eleventh hour ancl supporting the present member.
The Fornie Free Press, the organ
of the Conservatives is at present
emitting frantic..squeals of the most
pitiful character for the Liberals'' to
again come to the rescue of distressed
It, is admitted that the seat must
fall to the' workers. The (-capitalists
will combine forces to prevent a con-
o.nnination so undesirable to them.
They have money .without end; wp
lack that'essential weapon to success;
We therefore ask all workers who can
afford to do so to send iheir contributions, however small, to Oscar Ertck-
son. Box -70, Penile H. C.       '
-The combined forces of capitalism
are arrayed against us; let the workers show that they too are ready to
obey the'call of. the class. _
Independent.of defeating the tyrant
capital at its-own1' game we can and

ends: .   •■

Rev. }lr. Spidell conducted the services both morning and evening at the
Baptist church on Sunday, delivering
two splendid discourses. At the conclusion of the evening service a meeting of the members was held at which
a unanimous call was extended to Mr.
Spidell to permanently settle in Fgrnie
as the pastor of the church. In' the
short lime that Mr. Spidell has been
in the city he has seen vividly the urgent need for men in his work, and tho
possibilities of Fernie Miave appealed
to him in a particularly strong manner.
The outcome of the meeting was that
the call was accepted. Mr. Spidell
left for the East early ^in the week,
to'make preparations for"moving his
family west before the advent of the
winter months. Seldom have pastor
and "people come into such pleasant
relationships on such short acquaintance, and the membership of the Baptist church are gathering their forces
for aggressive work. Mr. Spidell understands western life and ways perhaps better than any other man •■ who
could have been chosen. Born in
Lunenburg, Nova Scotia, in 1866, he
spent his early days in that land, com-,
ing to British Columbia, in 1888, where
for four years he followed with' considerable success the calling of timber
cruiser and mining prospector. Even
at that time he had his mind on the
ministry,'to which he always felt called, and in spite of alluring prospects,
he left in 1892 to study for his life's
work. He entered the Woodstock
College at/Woodstock, Out:, in 1892,
completing his course there in the
year 1890. Following up his studfes,
he entered, in 1896 Newton Theological
institution he remained until the year
1900. He was. finally ordained into
the ministry in 1900. His first pastorate was in West Townsend, Mass.,
from * which he turned to his 'native
land, taking up the work at Boston,
Out,, and' later at Ailsa Craig, Ont.,
in all of which fields he has met. with
deserved success. Mr. and Mrs. Spidell and their little daughter of three
yeai-s can be assured of a warm welcome in Baptist circles in Fernie, and
the Ledger joins In congratulating the
denomination in this city upon such
a happy choice as pastor as has fallen
to their lot.
H. G. Lockhart was honorably acquitted of tho chargo of theft of rollof
funds on which ho appeared at Nolson
lust week. * Tho jury considered tho
ovidoneo so ridiculous tlmt they did
not even havo to rotiro beforo their
verdict of acquittal was arrived at.
Tho caso aroused considerable excitement all over tho country and groat
intorcst was centred In the verdict.
Mr, Lockhart's ninny friends throughout tho IJuss wero convinced of his
linioconco all the way through, and
thoy wero doubly plonsed when tho
verdict was glvon in Ills favor. It Is
a regret labia thing that a man" can
ho placed In such an awkward and
oinlmrriisslnpi position as somo of tho
witnesses wero In this caso, and havo
no rodrosfi. It hardly scorns fair that
a dofondlng or.,a prosecuting lawyor
should ho nllowcd to vllllfy ono man's
ohm-actor in order lo bring ■ further
proof of anotliur's Innocence, and In
this enso thu roinarks of Mr, Lock-
hurt's lawyer woro corlnlnly uncalled
I for.
From tho outset It was Ovldont. that
Loci-hart, had not touched any of tho

wore not called at all. Tho fuel that

A bud wreck occurred on the C. P.
R. near Hosmer last Sunday morning
when seven ears, which .broke away
from Michel, came dashing down towards Fernie at an awful rate, and
crashed into a freight that liad left
this city about 8 o'clock! The fireman, Alexander, was the most serious-
ly injured, although at last reports he-
is doing as well as oould be expected
at the local hospital. The engineer
and head brakeman were also more or
less injured. The regular and the
Flyer had to proceed to Fernie via
the G, N. tracks. The wrecking train
was soon at work and cleared up.the
debris., It was reported oh Sunday
that the brakeman who was responsible for the runaway train at Michel,
had left ■ tlie country. '■

¥ ■ *
(By W. V. li, in Winnipeg Voice:).
It seems strange that so Importune
an event us the recent murder of Professor Francisco Ferrer by. the misguided govornment that holds sway in
Spain should be allowed to puss almost unnoticed iu the press of this
country. Such an event, should, have
callod forth world wide condemnation
upon the heads of those responsible
for so gross an outrage. Had it been
the execution of tlie least notable
among capitalists, what columns of
indignant protest would come from the
press. I3ut Ferrer is different. He is
only a crank, .lust one of those foolish
hated persons, who work their very
lives out for the moral uplift and Intellectual enlightenment of tho masses.
Hy'pursuing this noble course Ferrer
has rendered himself objectionable to
the ruling class' in that country. So
his work must be suppressed. Aye and
he*,hiinself, must be wiped out if the
powers of bigotry and religious hatred backed by ill gotten money and
political intrigue can accomplish it,.
Francisco Ferrer al the time of his
death was forty-nine years of age and
a native of the province of Barcelona.
Spain. In th'e - year 1SSC he was occupying the position of superintendent
on one of* the linos of Spanish railway
and had to, seek refuge in France owing to the abortive attempt on" the
Republican General, Villacampa, that
rendered the residence of persons in
Spain holding advanced political views
unsafe. During this period of political
exil£ he lived in Paris as the friend
and secretary df a former prime minister and party chier of the Spanish
Republicans,, - At* the "death of his
Spanish language and literature at the
Philotechnic association at Paris. ,It
was about this time that be' thrttw
o\cr his old belief in the utility of
armed force in revolutionary work,
and turned all- his energy and atto.n-
<*on to the establishment of a n hool
to form a model for the institutions
already started by tho Radical, Rational and Progressive parties In Spain.
At this time also one.of Ills pupils,
Mademoiselle Mounter became anxious
to convert her professor to Catholicism. In the.ensuing discussions' however, sho herself 'found salvation In
the Rationalism of her friend, Heing
without relatives she bequeathed to
Ferrer some house property In Purls,
producing an annual rental of some
llfi.iiOO francs for the purpose of providing hi in with the necessary funds
in carry out. his educational plans In
his native country. To tho faithful
dlschaige, of this trust his lunmnlnblc
death will over bear lesllniony,
The commencement of work based
upon the principles formulated by
Ferrer was mnile in Augusl, 1001, The
school opened wllh'110 scholars—12
girls and JS boys--and by tho termination of Mm school year this number
had boom increased to 70 A prlnllng

For flvo years more the good work

broke out—one of those.un-Christian
conflicts which will always be possible
until the capitalist class as a dominating powor ceases to exist., The
course of this unjust conflict is current news; not yet has Spain found a
way out of a war of injustice aud of
The more enlightened Spaniards saw
through the flimsy veil which covered
the proceedings and protested against
the unnecessary sacrifice of the poor
peasants' lives, for the gratification of
a greedy few. The feeling grew and
the workers of the land banded themselves together to protest against the
war, and to demand the cessation of
hostilities. Angered because their
rulers turned a deaf ear and ignored
their just demands some of thei more
venturesome resorted to acts of violence and revolutionary methods to attain theii" end.
As a result martial law was declared and under tho slightest pretext all
those who had stood' for enlighten-
faient and advancement wore cast into
prison. Amongst them was Ferrer. 'He
had taught the people to see what
were their social rights and duties;
he had torn down the blinds of ignorance: he had taught, a simpler and a
grander religion;- he had established
schools throughout the land; ergo; he
had been the chief instigator of the
revolution.' He .must be tried, yes,
and to tlm death.
One hundred schools founded by'Ferrer have been closed. The excellent
books published from the press of the
ISscueUi "Moderna have been seized and
tbe plant and machinery destroyed.
Reports received state that Ihe prisons
contain some nine or ten thousand
prisoners ranging from mere children
to old men and the land and people
of--Spain, iire rendered subject'to the
relentless hand of Uie successors of
Ferdinand 11. and Thomas de Torquo-

write. "This is the slate of "affairs
which Ferrer strove to remove and
which his oppressors strove to preserve.- The first denouncement of Ferrer appeared in a .Madrid religious paper. This was followed by a letter of
the Bishop of Barcelona sent "in his
own name and in I lie name of all the
prelates of Catalonia, to the head of
tlm government as a respectful protest
on our part agalnsl the evils of Italy
of July last and against the individuals who, as ,wo maintain are responsible therefor; that, is lo say, lho partisans of Godless schools, the radical
press and the anarchist groups.' Unless I hose people are suppressed thero

We appeal lo the.religious sentiments
of tho government to stamp them out,

Ferrer In dead, but his Spirit stir-
tion to the fact that-Taft is trying to
secure peace between the hosts of capital and labor by compromise, just
as in ante-bellum days men tried to
dispose of the slavery question by
trying' tb compromise when; as now;
the country was "part slave and part
free," and "cannot forever remain
so." ■ '
The editor might have quoted-, from
Lincoln lo the effect that the fundamental point at issue in the question
of the black man's servitude is tin
same fundamental point at issue in the
question of wage slavery, the attitude
that declares "you work and emii
bread and I'll eat it."  , '
But especially,might the editor.have
called attention to the following incident, which happened in 185-), less
than five years before the Civil. War
began. It was at a mass meeting arranged on behalf of the black man's
cause at which Lincoln was to speak.
The meeting was duly advertised but
no man came besides Lincoln, his. law
partner, Herndon and John Pain. Lin
coin's speech consisted of these words
"These are sad times and seem out of
joint.  All  seems  dead,  dead!"
This was in 1856, ..when Liiuolh
hoped tho slavery question could be
adjusted by, peaceable means. As late
as 1859, in his fourth'debate with
Douglas, Lincoln said "I do not suppose that in-the most peaceful way
ultimate extinction would occur ir. less
than a .hundred years at least.'
That was, two years before the - Jivil
War began aiid less * than, a de .ade
before the Constitution was,amended
lo make chattel slavery impossib.e.
A hundred years has not passed as
yet, and conservative editors arc now
drawing comparisons between 'conditions prior to the civil war and those
of the present 'day.
To every one wlio has spent some
years, in studying tlie social 'question,
and in carrying on the propaganda
for the new abolitiou, it appears impossible that' within four years the
great  change  to  which   we  look for-
Stsam heat-fd throughout.

Editor Ledger:; ' "-•     ,
To the Editor of the Ledger:
, Sir: - Your cotem advocates a fusion
tickets of Conservatives and .Liberals.
I.presume that it is intended thereby,
to defeat the labor party,'under what-
' ever name that party may travel. The
Lib 3\ al party lias always claimed ide*-*.
tificatlon with labor interests. Whilst
somemay argue that this, claim is not
clearly established yet one of the basic
principles of Liberalism .is its support
of the laboring class.
Whatever views Liberals rpay take
in regard to a third party It'is ex-
-tremely" doubtful* If the time will ever
come when a fusion such.as tlie Free
Press speak of will take place. For,
tlie .Liberals to come out and fight
labor wojild be a serious blow to the
first, principles of that party. The
Liberals of Fernie may be numerically
weak, but weak as they are I" shall bo
much surprised if. they will crucify
their hopes by joining the Conservatives In this orjn any other election to
defeat a labor, candidate. ' •
,,   Yours faithfully,
Editor Ledger:
Dear Sir: The Fernie Free Press,of.
last week informed its readers: "The
gong has sounded" and the fight is on,'
etc. .Under its editorial notes it says
others things .which were received
with thanks by, every member of the
Socialist party of Fernie. Sure it is im*'
portant to have, a government' representative in .Pernio. "Hardly Iv Liberal,'
etc., is well, understood by the Socialist members... They are well satisfied
that" Conservatism and Liberalism are
identical,, hence their anxiety to have
a member who will represent their interests, as well as the whole of the
working class -in general, which is
more than can truthfully be said of
our present M. -P. "6 We are told to
drop all personal feeling, petty jealousies, party .strife. 7 Now Mr. Free
Press editor, the twov former we will
leave out of the discussion, the.latter
is the Alpha and Omega of our fight.
If we leave that out too, Socialism
would be- doomed. -The Socialists
want their party represented, the Conservatives ditto. We agree" with the
Free Press .lliat the election of a So;
we fail to see that it would retard the
development of the district. The Socialist party represents the working
class, ii-roersls,' una Hi'' v.-»i?.iiig class
"is the backbone ot this or-nny other
riding. Touching on the last phrase
* of the said editorial notes, some men
may,feci complimented if they are of-
' fered a drink or n. cheap*cigar, but if
there is a spark of intelligence or
reasonable tliinking power, no man
will let that (excuse the term) bribe,
rob hiiii of the vote, which is to his
best interest; ,, „
Speaking of the provincial government's expendituijo.in this district, It
would bo interesting to know tho exact nmount of Influence (hat* W. It.
noss used to got that assistance. Was
It not rather their ability to seo the
necessity of that assistance through
the .destructive fire. That is as it
looks to   *
Yours Truly

it not so he woiild realize. tha,t his
strictures are inane as even the intelligent apologists for the'present system are reluctantly compelled tp acknowledge" the^force of, dally happenings

in the Daily News, October 25, Nelson

Crass ignorance is by no means
incurable, but any attempt to poison
the springs of truth should have the
emphatic condemnation of all right
thinking minds, and although we might
liko to throw the 'mantle of charity
over this inksltnging|Swage slave, yet
the position he occupies prevents, and
we call attention to the fact that his
knowledge of conditions in other coun
tries may be the result of ignorance
hence unreliable, but not so .with what
obtains on this continent, ' therefore
we should put a brawl on lilm whereby
vhe would be tabooed by every self respecting newspaper man.
There are Socialist locals both ' iii
Japan and Chill, in the former only
recently one 'of lis journals was confiscated by ihe authorities. In the
Argentine Republic there are Socialist
locals at .Tunln, .Tuctunan, Bahia, and
at other and smaller places, whilst in
the city of Buenos Ayres besides five
Socialist,locals, there are two publlcu*-
tions "La Vanguardia" if Socialist daily
"La Revlsta' Soclalista Internaclonal"
a .monthly containing articles which
for erudition and' cogency of reasoning
compare with such English publlcat-,
ions as "The.Fortnightly Review," the
English Review, etc., also there Is a
library kept up by the party and patronized by the working class, contain-
ing 5000 volumes.
Take the last two sentences and to
anyone who is willing to make a fair
and square investigation of Socialist
philosophy, but one conclusion can be
'reached and that is'that this'is the
jaundiced emanation of an intellect so
sadly atrophied as to" verge upon a zero

Royal Crown Soap
It Is Sure a Perpetual Pleasure
the Conservative government of B. C.
assumes the power to mortgage pos-
terlty forever. Is it not a fundamental principle, in democratic government
that the people can only be governed
with the consent of the governed. If
Mr. Ross wishes to earn eternal gratitude from his party, will lie kindly
explain this: If Mr. Ross is conversant with history he will no doubt remember that upon the occasion, of
William and Mary taking the throne,
the .English parliament handed over
the English crown, to them and their
heirs forever, also, but if he continued
his studies he would find that it did
not work out. ' We, today, viewing
these things,' think that political im-
bicllity has reached its apex on that
point; but in view ofthe situation in
British Columbia, we are obliged to
halt until we hear, further from Mr.
Ross. -* ,r    i
With a paternal feeling Mr.* Ross expresses his sympathy for. the unlet ter-"
ed0nien and boys in the coal camps;
and assures us that he has supplicated the proper quarters for remedy, but
that it needs HIM m parliament to
insure the additions of the necessary
machinery, to place this tremendous
reform in motion. I wonder if •'Billy'
ever read that before a snake swallows
a victim it covers it with its saliva.
He should" lieed the moral in Michel
well, and cannot afford to do so when
sick. This being so, it is dangerous
to the mining element that he should
"misrepresent" them In the next parliament, and for that and other reasons equally 'good he will be returned
on the 25th of .November, not to'Victoria, but to political oblivion, from
which he should never have emerged.
The workingmen of Fernie riding will
pay their, best respects to the Conservatives here, which in essence, is only
an.amalgamation of barristers and of
bartenders. ' Hoping I have not in*
traded too far, upon your kindness,'
I am, yours very truly,
,,     Secretary Michel Miners' Union,
meted out to the working man by the
institution of a park or some such
unnecessary expenditure. If you are
to ignore the poorer grade, do so in
matters that do not directly bear upon
their";dire necessities. If nothing is
done within the next few days to supply the Annex with water, either from
stands erected temporarily along the
line or from some other means which
may be decided on, the question of
seeking a government inquiry into the
matter will be resorted to, as, I presume that is the only course open
when a municipal body fails tb respond
to the appeals of the people. I am
sure,' if statistics were compiled to
show the number of cases of* typhoid,
if not all, directly the outcome of the
water question, and the deaths thereby, one would readily see the gravity
of the situation. \
The question of sanitation . too, is
just as'important. We find that only
certain houses in the Annext have
the scavenger making his nightly call,
while other places .still keep up the
old style dump pits. Coming from the
G. X. depot and turning to the left one
immediately comes across a foul smelling cesspool, an undisputed habitation
of the deadly germ of typhoid. These
I understand are quite common in certain quarters of the Aunex., These
should bo done away with at once.
"In conclusion I would say that we
are all aware-that diseases caused by
bad " sanitation etc., are essentially
contageous, and if it were only fo;*
the, reason that the inhabitants of
these low lying places have to intermix with the remainder of the citizens
this should be sufficient to warrant a
proper inspection and protection.   -
L hope the matter will receive   the
attention it deserves and that immediately. '•       .

Sir: As a resident and voter of the
Fernie riding I was somewhat struck
with the interview given W. R.  ,Ross
to tho Fernio Free Press, with respect
lo his candidature at the forthcoming
provincial election, and would respect-
fully reply to some of his statements,
lt would appear that  Mr,.Ross,   llko
othei'H of his ilk, Indulges In a lot of
blatant bluff, immediately prior to nn
election, with the hopo that ho may
successfully  mislead   the  "great  unwashed." It Is astonishing how at this
time Mr; Ross, with nn almost superhuman forensic foresight, would   appear   to havo 'nt his disposal a balm
for all the ills of human naturo, nnd lt

There's the dickens to pay—
Mr. Ross says, according to an interview, that
,he will endeavor to enlist the aid of tlie government
on behalf of many of the children of these same
"unintelligent and unthinking," voters iind establish night schools. This is certainly a laudable
project 'and would have the hearty co-operation
of every citizen, both "intelligent" and "unintelligent" (unless peradventure it made a sensible
increase in his taxes) were it not for the fact that
coming at this stage of the game, and recalling the
pie crust promises of the past it has all the earmarks of a transparent bid i'or a vote that is essential if this gentleman is to be a reseated Bill, that
the "unthinking and unintelligent" parents may
possibly ask the question:  *     .*•
Js it not very likely that such a bill would meet
the same fate as did the'bi-weekly payment bill?
Receive the solid support of*both .Liberals and
Socialists, and also the only one Conservative vote
of YV7 R. Koss, whicli in itself should indicate to
any but a par-blind 'partisan that even his own
party regarded this as freak legislation and by
their condemnation showed their disapproval of
such measures? ■
Honestly it is to, laugh at" the remarkable
naivete of;thdsc who are classed as*intelligent and
certainly any unfortunate individual who is gulled
witli such pronijses deserves to be regarded    as
Whoever tlie temporary occupant of the cluiir
of wisdom may be he is certainly, entitled to, a
hearty vote of thanks from all members "of the
Socialist party because of his outspoken corroboration of tlieir contention that Liberal and Conservative are merely a pair of* blinkers on tlnit'old
horse Capitalism,
From thc viewpoint of the windjammers of Hint
dual label Lib-Con. (emphasis on "Con." in this
constitueney) tbe "unthinking" action of this pen
wielder and thought moulder is decidedly reprehensible and no doubt will bring* down upon his

The election of a Socialist in this
Riding means a severe blow to'the
future 'development of the district,
therefore Liberals and Conservatives
unite to protect, the growth of „ your
community. ;•
■**• *, *
The intelligent and'thinking people
of this district have twice carried
this .riding against a heavy socialist
vote and can easily'do so again, if
they stand united.- ' .
M      K      *F
Just at this time the Liberals of
Fernie can .show true patriotism to
their district by uniting .with the
Conservatives in the, support of W.
R. Ross. We do nol think that the
maiority * of the electors of this Riding desire a Socialist to represent
them, which will certainly happen in
the event of a three cornered fight.—
Fernie Free Press.        ,-■ .  .
Evidently the "Intelligent and thinking" "people referred to above had nothing to do with the production of
these ill-tiihed remarks,.because'their
"intelligence!' would have prevented
such nn exhibition of foolhardiness,
and their "thinking" apparatus would
certainly have forbidden the appearance of such sentiments in print.
The Free Press, on the eve of an
election, is having ono of its periodical
"Tory organ" seasons, when with the
election fever running past normal in
its,make-up, it proceeds to make a
great stand for the Conservative party
hoping thereby, to gain some few patronage crumbs which may be handed
out to such hirelings. .'
At nearly every other season this
same Free Press strives to assume an
attitude of indifference, nay even at
times smiling on the Liberals, and meting out to the Conservatives, whose
principles it is supposed to champion,
"that faint applause which doubly
damns."    •*   '
That some such frame up to defeat
* i - ,
the Socialist candidate is deemed necessary by the Conservatives is in itself a decided tribute to the Socialist
organization, and thb very .fact of the
Tory organ pleading for a fusion ticket
to win out in this riding shows a, very
decided weakness and a large area of
yellow at the very' inception, of • the

A word to yiv. Hoss on the subject of edueation.
We may say without reserve, si ml in all sincerity,
that any attempt to improve the education of the

solieitious so abruptly inclines one to think of the,
Latin quotation "Beware of the Greeks    hi-siri)*!**.'

To those whose, knowledge of Socialist, philosophy is below par and their knowledge of the movement ditto,'we would call attention lb the fact
that Bismarck, with a view lo stemming the tide
of Socialism decided to give every aid lo education,
with a''result, that Frankenstein like the Germans,
who stand in the can of education, despite the "unintelligent and unthinking" editorial opinion, are
giving the Kaiser many sleepless'nights, and he is
already troubled with visions of what may happen
in 1012. Let the working class become educated,
either by continuation classes, night schools, or the
correspondence methods, thus equipping themselves
lo take complete control of industry and tlmn thc
exhortation ol7Mnrx ''Workingmen of all Countries
Unite," is no longer required because, if will be an
accomplished fact.

.lust at present thu 1/ihcral press are calling tlu
Conservatives all kinds of things, and vice versa,
In the majority of cases the bombs hurled at each
other nre labelled with "Truth" and the receivers
of such are always nnxious lo clap on the cap, The
fact nf the mutter is thai both the Liberal and
Conservative parties have been swindling and beguiling the workers so long Ihiu they think they
have Ihem just where Ihey want them, However,
I lie old trick of Liberal labor has been used so much
thai Ihe simplicity is apparent to the blindest of
the workers. What we want is a Sncialisl out and
nut nnd,we are going to have one for this riding in
spile nf the combined nnd trembling forces of the
•opponents of labor.
The stiiiul we took on the water proposition

provided supper to which a- number

added to the mirth of the* supper hour

A report was current in the Creek
on Wednesday that a well known

got married to a certain young lady

it'is that, the couple disappeared on

train' at night, We give the report
for jvliat it is'worth, not having been
able to ascertain as to the correctness
or otherwise at the time of writing.
However, the Creek youngsters took
it for granted that the report was
true;and turned up n( the parties con-
ceriieTrTcsillence,- armed with the us-

they created iy:terrible din. If there
is anything in the report the Ledger
begs to offer congratulations.

° Bites the Dust-Went
On Purpose
HAURIN Manchuria, Oct 26—Prince
Hirobum Ito, former Japanese president general of Korea, and probably
the most foremost statesman of Japan
was assassinated here Tuesday, afternoon by a-Korean, who had followed
him here for the express purpose of
killing him.
The motive of the assassination was
revenge. The assassin was arrested
almost * immediately on his arrival
here, and just as Prince Ito left the
railroad car at the station the attack
was made upon him.* The venerable
statesman, accompanied by the Russian minister of finance, Mr. Kokov-
soff, was starting to inspect the guard
of honor drawn up along the platform
when a pistol shot was heard.
Several more shots were fired in
(piick succession, the buliets striking
the prince in the .back, and he fell
where he stood mortally wounded.
The assassin was promptly seized.
On being1 questioned he said lie was a
* "I came to Harbin for the sole purpose of assassinating Prince Ito to
avenge my country,' the slayer told
his captors. He also said he had a
personal account to settle with the
great Japanese statesman who during
his stay in Korea had ordered the
execution of several, persons closely
connected with the assassin.

Paul a Prisoner.-The Vc.*.age, Acts
27: i-26.   . ■■
Golden Text—Commit thy way unto
the Lord; trust also In Him, and He
shall bring it to pass. Ps. 37:5.
Verses 1-8—The writer of this narrative appears to be a companion of
Paul on his journey—who was he?
Who were the others that sailed
with Paul? , '
AVhat results are likely to. follow,
when a man of God is, compelled to be
in the company of criminals? '
AVho was'this man Julius, and what
probably induced him to treat the
prisoner Paul with such leniency?
is there any position in life, how-'
ever undesirable, in which God does
not give his children special comfort,
even when in prison, and can you give
some examples of this?*
Julius gave Paul his freedom to visit his' friends when the ship touched
at Sidon; would it have been honorable of Paul to have made his escape
and not "to have returned to the ship,
seeing he was an innocent man on
Can you tell, or point out on the
map, where Sidon, Cyprus, Pamphylia,
Myra and the other places .-here mentioned are situated?
When the winds are against us, or
we are becalmed on the voyage of
life, •■ and making" but little headway,
is it a hinderance or a help to the
soul poised on God? -
Arerses 9-11—Why is "the advice of
a man of God, other things being
equal, more to'be trusted than that
of a non-believer?       *,■'■•
Did Paul give the advice for them
not to proceed, but to winter at the
"fair havens," from his human judg-
men or from God's direction?
AVhy • may, or may not, a true
Christian always depend that the
judgments he forms in the great crises
of life' as well as in ordinary affairs,
are really inspired of • God and can
therefore be depended upon? (See
John 14: 26 et seq.)   ,   -
Verses 12-20—When we are faced
with a great problem as -to the way
to take or the thing to do, is there
always in the mind of God thething
we ought to.do, and-is ther a possibility for us to find out with certainty what it is? (This question must
the club.)  , ■ ,'
Why is it that God sometimes leads
us contrary to,what the circumstances
would suggest?
When wo are irrcsistably driven by
a "euroclydon" and appear- at the
mercy of the wind and sea.' is there
reason to believe that we are just as
safe,' and as much in Gods keeping,,
as when the south winds blow sojtly?
When in stress and strain, in wind
■and storm, and we appear to.be driving into disaster and death, will the
consciousness .that God is with us,
quicken/or * deaden our nativities to
save ourselves?
Verses 21-26—Is there ever any uso
in crying over spilt, milk?
What, reason is thore to bollovo
from this narrntlvo, that when wc fall

God's host plan, he -will still graciously

feet the saving of the rest of them?
"Here is a case of casting away a
boat to save a ship; ■ what principle
does that suggest in human life?
Verses 33-38—There are two tilings,
at least, possible no.matter how great
the' distress; one is to wring your
hands and bemoan your fate and give
up hope; the other is to be cheerful,
and s.e- how best to save the ship;
which is the better and how-can it be
AVhy is it" that the courage and
good cheer-of one man can save an
entire crew from despondency and
May praying and fasting0 when you
ought, to be eating and working, be
as great a practical crime as scuttling the ship?
Why does God generally need our
help when he would save us from any
Impending calamity? (v 38.)
A'erses'39-44.—To a truo man is it
always so, that after the flight comes
thc day, after sorrow comes joy and
after so called defeat comes the victory?,"
Does,God in these days, even save
a family, a business, a community, or
a nation for the sake of one man, as
he saved the passengers and the crew
of. the ship for the sake of one man

Julius prevented the killing of the
prisoners for the sake of Paul; is
there any analogy between that and
the saving of sinners for the sake of
God told Paul that all hands should
be saved, and the ship lost and this
is what, happened; speaking from your

The first really metropolitan dram-
.. atic offering of the-season wilj be the
. -production of Cousin Kate, with Miss
"* Jeaunie Russell, whose position as a
starts firmly,fixed in Canada, in"the
title role, at the miners Uni6n * New
- Theatre on Wednesday November 10.
The'attraction was secured at great
expense by Brandon Brothers as- the
opening attraction of thei\** new opera
house in Lethbridge, which is said to
, ,be thei finest, theatre between.'-Winnipeg and Vancouver, and the company
will play, only a few towns between
Lethbridge and Spokane. -   Fernie is
fortunate lu being one *■ of these.     It
,1s one of the recognized* metropolitan
successes and'was" written especially
for Miss Ethel Barrymore, and is the
-   play that made Miss Barrymore famous as* a star.     With-it she.,had,-a
remarkable run bf '350' nights In London and 300 nights in New York with
most phenomenal success. Miss Jeanne
„ Russell* who Is now starring in   the
piece, is the legitimate 'and  worthy
successor of Miss Barrymore, and is
surrounded by  a  New  York cast of
quite exceptional ability.     The play
is a delightful English comedy with a
beautiful  and   touching  Story.      The
management  have given  it a scenic
production superior to anything ever
seen here and in order that no detail
might> be marred they,   are carrying
their own orchestra, and their special
musical programme is an extra   fine
feature of the 'evening. -

(By Ralph Hpry, Barbour in ",The
Western Home''Monthly.)' - .
They sat in a; third story window
of Hollis. Her name was Grace; his
was Hugh; they.had other names hut
those don't' matter. They were cousins—in, a way; "the connection was
difficult to trace offhand; he couldn't
have done it nor she. Her mother
would have explained at once, but at
present she was conversing with his
mother at the other window, and when
two mothers get together on Class day
evening they dislike being interrupted. The room belonged to Jack' and
Billy. Billy was, Grace's brother. Both
hosts had class day duties and ever
since noon they had been coming and
going with flowing gowns and i*ak-
ishly tilted hats, very red'iof face and
rather breathless, hut infinitely important, .Tack's mother said they made
her so nervous she didn't think she
could .last' out the dny. Just now they
were absent and as a result the study
was very quiet and peaceful The gas
gets were turned down to mere pinpoints of yellow flame. Over by the
door the cut glass bowl and tumblers
caught the light in their facets' and
glowed wanly.
Grace sat on the window seat propped up with innumerable cushions.
One bare'arm rested upon the sill, and
the palm above it afforded a nestling
placo for her chin. None had ever
calledsGrace pretty; it would have
been sacrilege. She was beautiful, with
a beauty that embraced not only ideal
regularity of feature, but life- and
warmth as well; it was no wonder
that the nian at her side' loved her;
he* would have felt himself "disgraced
if he hadn't. * ° Ho had loved her since
he had been a first year student in
the'law school and she had been a
pink and laughing aiom of hjumanity
in ridiculously long garments- that
were forever getting in his*way any
time he went to' take her in his arms.
Just when his love had changed and
-intensified—to—the— secrct-adoration-ot
the present he 'could not have told;
he believed it" was that never lo be
forgotten, moment, when glancing idly
into the ballroom of tho summer hotel
he had, seen her swaying over the
floor in Jack's'arms. He had-stolen
away, into the darkness and counted
bitterly the.,'years separating him and
Jack. , Afterwards ho had steeled
himself to see her,, surrounded at all
times by suitors, realizing the4 hopelessness of his caso and doggedly repeating to himself, llko a litany of
renunciation, that so long as sho was
happy, thp rest didn't matteiy During three years ho had found lt necessary to repent It very often, sometimes without much conviction. Tonight, seated beside her breathing in
tho ch'nrm of her presence and feasting" his oyos recklessly upon hor faco,
tho, litany, had entirely lost all its'effectiveness.
Bolow thom spread a paradise of
soft, swaying lights and stirring and
sighing branches, a fairyland'of joyous 'sound and changing colors. From
their novlo thoy looked down upon
thousands of many lined lanterns nil
dipping and trembling In the broozo,

which hail haunted lilm all tlio ovon-
fug    grew uudilctily    BtratiBcr    and
brought a crease to the broad' forehead and a little', droop to the firm,
well formed mouth. He turned to
see her., warm with the glow and clear
cut against the dark drapery at her
back. Her gray eyes were looking rather dreamily down from under her
half closed lids, and her lips, wont
to smile in curves, were thoughtfully
straight. Hugh thought he had never seen her more beautiful, and he
knew that, he had never found his secret so hard to keep. He turned his
gaze'from her by a supreme effort as
the last strain of music died away on
the soft night air. Grace gave a little sigh and faced him.
"Wasn't it sweet?" she, asked,
gently.   ; "
--"Yes," he replied. "..They played that
twenty years ago."
She gave a little laugh that didn't
sound quite true. ,.
"Oh, hear,"' such a doleful Cousin
Hugh as itjs. Did the music make
him sad? - Come now tell me all
about it; who was she?" v
"She?" . - " *
"Of ' course! The giri of' twenty
years ago;" the one you think of when
you hear ,the Blue Danube, - ,1 fear

"There was no girl twenty years

her head as though she was not at all
sure. **.*■"■■'
"Is the memory too sacred?" slie
asked in a mocking whisper. "Very
well, he shan't be teased." • Then,
turning again to the window. -'Isn't
it beautiful?" she asked.
"Very." H.e fancied he detected
something of boredom in her tones.
"Perhaps you'd rather dance, Grace?
I've a card for Beck you know, and
I'm sure your mother would trust you
to me unchaperoned."
She shook her head slowly without
turning. "No, I don't believe I .care tb
dance tonight.. But don't, let. me
keep you: Jack said he would* be
back at - nine."
"."It's a quarter of," he said holding
his watch to the light.' "If I am not

she ased wistfully. ; "You're not—the
Cousin Hugh*that I like tonight."
■His hand trembled under hers, but
he answered steadily, though; "I'm
sorry, Grace; don't mind me please,
It's just that I'm feeling so awfully out
of it tonight. 'Perhaps when you

he answered judicially, "but she gave

"I see." She turned back to the

"I shouldn't have mentioned it 'anyhow,"- he answered slowly.
"I'd rather you didnt yet," she said.
I 'don't quite see why that should
make you jealous?"
"Don't you?" he asked in tones
that sounded tired' and discouraged.
''Well, ever since you were two or
three months old,and I used to carry

proprietorship, considered myself a
kind of self appointed guardian. No

that's why I can't help feeling a little

out of the window. He watched her

He thought there was a tremor of
her shoulders, but his sight for the
moment, was untrustworthy. At all
events she did not turn, but only asked after an instant and very quietly,
"Much, Hugh?' ,
"Very much, little girl."* His .-voice
trembled. "Perhaps I shouldn't have

You won't let it trouble you, will you?

Chronic sores which cause trouble
by. "breaking open" may be cured.by
Zam-Buk, as well as recent injuries
and ' diseases. If you suffer from
some old * sore—hidden perhaps, but
none the' less painful for that—don't
dally, apply nature's healing essences
as provided in Zam-Buk. Mrs. I. 13.
Ashton' of 111 Vickers street, Fort
William, tells how valuable Zam-Buk
is as a family balm. She says: "We
first used Zam-Buk for cuts and for
bruises etc., and found it. so satisfactory that my husband started using it
for a chronic sore. • For a long time
he had been bothered with an*old soro
on his leg and had used various preparations, yet nothing had permanently cured it. He began applying Zam-
Buk balm and was very soon agreeably surprised to notice a great improvement.
"It was only a matter of a short
time before Zam-Buk liad thoroughly
cleansed the sore of all foul matter
and healing commenced.' It was now
some months since tho sore was completely closed and there is no likelihood of it breaking out' again.
"Since then my baby, eighteen
months old, has been cured of eczema
on the scalp by Zam-Buk. This eczema
came in red pimples, and if rubbed or
scratched, formed into, sores. The
child was very fretful from the irritation of the scalp, but whenever Zam-
Buk was applied it seemed to bring
the geratest relief. , Frequent applications were effective in clearing all
traces of the disease .from the baby's
scalp In a short space of time. I feel
it my duty to.give the credit where due
ando I cheerfully recommend Zam-Buk
to all sufferers-from chronic sores, bad
leg or eczema." ' ,      ,. ,
Zam-Buk is nature's own healing
balm; being composed of purely herbal essences. .11 is a sure cure for
eczema; ringworm, ulcers, cuts, burns,
bruises, poisoned sores, chronic wound
bad leg, piles, festering* sores, chapped hands, cold sores, frost bite and

An alert little five year 'old was
visiting a city park 'with her mother
for, tho first time. She liad noticed the
beautiful red and white swan boats,
as they passed through in tbe. morning,    and "her  mother  had  promised
nrey~sliouTd - come back~beforo ThT
shopping wus done and have a ude.
'..Shortly after dinner they stood on
the bridge over. the lagoon watching
the boats below and listening to the
cry of the barker as tye tried to induce
the passing crows to patronize his
swan boats,
'But, when her mother started toward
the boat landing little Elsie declnred
very vigorously that she did not. want
to go at all, and as her mother urged
her, broke in tears.
This sudden fear wns so dll'feieiil
from her former eagerness that hor
mot her*, could not understand It until
she noticed the'boat mans call. "
Ho was crying: "Como along, como
along—ride clear around the pood-
only five cents for Indies and gouts—
children thrown In!"

A Quiet Day
There we-e no Thanksgiving services of any kind held here on Monday
and although the shops, newspaper
offices and other business places remained closed, building operations
proceeded as usual, as the season is
drawing to a close. In the evening
grand dinner, national in character
is (riven in Bmces hall by the ladies
of the Presbyterian church. There
: five tables, English and Canad-
American, Scotch, Irish and Ger-
and each of these was laden with,
the favorite dishes of the nation. The
decorations were quite striking and
each nationality was well represented.
The arrival of the Haggis was quite
feature, a Highlander carrying' the
dish was preceded by a piper, and the
hearts of all Scotchmen were thrilled
the pipes pealed forth. The Rev.
Hugh Grant, the pastor of the church
pronounced . the blessing at the opening of the dinner. Fully a hundred
hungry people were unable to get
seats and had to go away disappointed. ....
