,   INDIANAPOLIS, March 31 (Night)
' Special Despatch"to The District Ledger.).,
, The negotiations so long under way between the representatives of the Mine Workers of America
and the mine operators, which, for several weeks past haye, been see-sawing backwards and forwards,
jockeying, so to speak; for apdsition,'reached what may.be termed an ante-climax on the 25th, when
after'considerable discussion the situation.simmeredown to' a disagreement, and the position of the
mine owners was.the offer so far as the States'of Pennsylvania and Indiana were concerned, that they
would concede an advance of five cents. ,,''"!. ,
This, of course, was turned down emphatically,-but being desirous of leaving no stone unturned to
. reach a settlement, and finding jfoe operators representatives agreable thereto, the scale committee decided that "the best, course.to pursue .would be thecalling of a special convention when attempts at finding a-mutually satisfactory understanding could be'entered into. It was understood that any concessions made would apply to all districts in the bituminous field comprising Pennsylvania, Indiana,
-Western Kentucky, Ulinpis, Iowa,'!Arkansas, Kansas, Texas,' Oklahoma, Missouri and *, West ' Virginia.    ';  '   ' ' \     ' "-  ' ,* -7. -..'■' ■'
In the event of an inability to reach an understanding, there would be a general cessation from
work in all bituminous mines on the 1st of April. - , -,   " ' ' 7     '
There has been some considerable slarmishing since the 25th which, finally. culminated in   the
joint conference accepting the conclusion that an impasse was reached, although from the tone notice-!
able on the part.of the operators, despite the fact that the suspension of work begins on the lst,   the
representatives of the miners do not look for .a. very prolonged strike, feeling that 30 daysswill see the
:theendof the 'conflict.,  '""''        .' "   ."'   "*""-'--■ „ "•'■      '" ■■..,-■•..
The most serious obstacles come from the Illinois and Pittsburg, Penri., districts.
These, ^however, there is hope > of overcoming on the part'of the Mine Workers representatives, because of the known fact that the great majority of the other operators are perfectly willing to grant the
extra advanced demanded, but have balked at what they deem details of minor importance.
President Lewis expresses himself as certain of the problem being solved before very long, and is
also satisfied that all will be well, in the end. ' '
The   Districts involved that effect the output the'most because of the number of men engaged in
tho coal industry are the states of Pennsylvania, Illinois and Ohio.    The miners in these three districts
number approximately a quarter of a million, and the production of these mines is figured at 235;000,-
■ 000 tons por annum.
It is not expected that the strike ih the United States will have any special, direct bearing upon the
situation in Western Canada expect of course from the standpoint of moral and financial support that
it is the duty of overy member to givo at such times.   " .

Tho month of April last year was ono fraught with several events of grout interest to all tho people
in the Pass, becauso of the strainod relations that then existed, resulting in thc suspension of work in
tho collieries that romainod in tho Wostorn Coal Operators' Association, thoso withdrawing therofrpm
being the Crow's Nost Pass Coal Company, ownors of tho minos at Carbonado, Fornio and Michol, and
the Canadian American Coal and Coko Company, operating tho mines at Prank, Alta.
Tho former Company mado an agroomont covering a period of two years from the lst of April,
1009, but tho latter only signed up for ono yoar, and during the prosont weok tho distriot board oponod up communications with tho Company, looking to'tho making of a now agroomont and much to tho
surprise in all quarters outside of tho Company's officials, negotiations have boon abruptly brokon
off, and tho stand takon by tho company is decidedly autocratic, plainly showing that it is somewhat
u parallel to the caso of Vandorbilt's famous or inamouB "The Publio bo Damned' sontimont,
In order that our roadors may understand that tho assortion mado is provon by the circumstances
oonnootod therewith, wo givo tho Btand taken by the party who roproBontu tho Company;
That thiB company dooms that tho matters brought forward by tho representatives of tho miners
aro not worthy pf consideration, unions tho following concessions aro mado, and that thoy bo loft out
of the quostion entirely.
Firstly: That the men shall concedo a reduction of fivo cents per ton for mining in tho pillars. * '   ,
Secondly: That a olauso bo insorted in tho agreement to tho effect that tho United Mine Workors
of Amorloa shall waivo all jurisdiction ovor  tho mon who aro working in or around tho shaft.

To comply with Buch arbitrary demands would sirjiply placo tho minors' organization in tho posi

The men have therefore (and wo feol that every fair minded person will coincide with their action) deoided to refrain from further work until an agreement is signed, and whilst we go to press a
mau meeting ia being held in Frank, at which practically all thc miners of Bellevue, LUIc, Hillcrest,
Blairmore, Passburg, and a goodly portion from Coleman are in attendance to discuss tbe situation and
formulate plans for the future.
This may bo termed tho sequel of the Despatch romance that appeared in the Toronto Globe of
the 18th ult., and which from subsequent events looks decidedly as though it were nn inspiration actuated by the desire to forestall publio opinion should the men refuse these remarkable stipulations that
they (the Company's officals) undoubtedly felt that they would.

Security for Costs Under Workmen's
* Compensation Act
Workmen's Compensation Act Applicable to G. T. P. Company and its
An Important decision has been just
handed down by Judge Taylor in the
arbitration under the Workmen's Compensation Act between Allan Murray,
of Edmonton and the railroad construction contractors, Foley, Welch &
Stewart.,   Murray was employed as a
' carpenter on the C, T. P. construction.
While working on a trestel bridge he
• was knocked off the structure by somo
moving timbers and sustained injuries
'to his foot. He claimed $9 a week
since tho accident happened.
Tho respondents, Foley & Stewart,
denied their liability lo pay compen-
-sation under the Act, contending that
as contractors on the Grand Trunk Pacific railway company in the construction of that railway they were consequently subject to the exclusive legislative authority of the Parliament of
Canada; and that in pursuance of such
legislative authority, the parliament of
Canada had made applicable to such
work the provisions    of the ' Public
. Works Health Act, being chapter 135
of the Revised Statutes of Canada
1906, and the applicant came under
the provisions of such Act and received medical attendance ln pursuance of
its regulations.
The Workmen's Compensation Act,
under which the proceedings were taken, it was, therefore, held, did not
apply to the Grand Trunk Pacific Ry.
or to the. respondents as its contractors.
This contention was not upheld by
Tayior,- iirthe
following judgment:
"In this matter I am of the opinion
that the Workmen's Compensation Act
applies. The Public Works Health Act
does not in any way cover compensation for injury that may-be incurred
to any workman and make the camps
sanitary. It is also for the purpose
of compelling them to have within
reasonable distance of the workmen,
proper medical men and hospital accommodation to caro for any of the
men wlio may become sick or Injured,
.•it; It is well kno-mi U.at mosr of Dw^o
wc/.is are can ico on ut great distai: *e
from tho places whero medical care or
accommodation for the sick or Injured
is to be had, The health regulations
permit the, contractors or companies
to levy'a certain contribution from
every workman to meet tho expenses
This, no doubt, in many cases reimburses thc company for their outlay,
Tho Workmen's Compensation Act is
for u different purposo. It Is to reimburse llio workman to a certain oxtent for his loss of time if ho should
suffer nn injury whicli Incapacitates
him from work. Ilo might not even
bo confined to the hospital or require
lhe doctor's cure. While ln some
oiibcb the two Acts might, overlap,. I
do not see thnt they In any wny conflict. In my opinion, therefore, tho
Workmen's Compensation Act is not,
ultra vires, and does apply to m*oh
construction works as thnt. In which
dal mnnt  was engaged,"

The defendant Company, In a proceeding action under the Workmen's
Compensation Act, applied for an order for security for costs. The claimant was the administrator of the personal estate of Albert Kruz, deceased,
who died in consequence of injuries
received whilst in the Company's employment. ,
The claim for compensation was in
due course brought before an arbitrator, pursuant to the provisions of the.
Workmen's Compensation Act, aud the
evidence having been substantially
given, several adjournments were had
for different purposes. After the proceedings commenced the plaintiff become an inmate of the penitentiary on
a charge of theft.
He was also insolvent. , Whilo the
matter was still before the arbitrators
an application was made ia chambers
by the company, for security for casts,
on the grounds that the applicant was
not interested in the subject matter
of the arbitration; that the estate of
the deceased was insolvent; that the
claimant was under penal servitude'
and that the dependent wife of the
deceased lived beyond the jurisdiction
ofthe court.
The application was opposed first,
because it should have been made to
tho arbitrator; secondly, because the
right to security, if such right existed,
had been waived; and thirdly, because
of the facts set forth in evidence, the
Company was not entitled to security,
Mr. Justice Morrison, before whom tho
matter came, said that the third objection raised the substantial point of
contention in answer to the Company's
real grounds, viz. the application of
the well known principle of law'that a
nominal . plaintiff, - if without means,
may be ordered to give security for
the costs of the action.
which, in his opinion covered the case
with respect to the third objection
above stated, and held that that objection did not' apply in the present
case. On the other points of objection
he was of the opinion that the application of the company, if it could have
been made at*all, should have been
mnde to the arbitrator,* and then it
should have been made ln time. The
application for security for costs was
refused with costs.

The defendant Company, In an action for wages, admitted that ' tho
plaintiff was employed by the montlC
but contended that he wns not entitled

The county judge of tho county court
of Victoria, beforo whom tho notion
was tried, decided" flint it could not bo

BERLIN, March 29—The controversy now proceeding regarding the question of the Prussian franchise, which
has already caused serious riots
throughout the country, will develop
in the near ^future into a more strenuous trial of strength between the Kaiser's government and the revolutionary legions of the Socialists. The German Socialists have in view a daring
stroke whereby they are resolved to
assert themselves.
The Socialists intend to organize a
complete strike of all the coal miners in German which will be partly
economic and partly political in character. It Is this combination of politics, pure and simple, and trade* unionism which will render the strike so
formidable and so Inconvenient to the
government. .
" The situation in the coal industry
is growing ripe for a tremendous trial
and tho mine workers who desire to
have shorter hours and higher wages.
The present moment is not suitable for
a striko, because a large surplus quantity of coal is still in .the possession of
the mine owners, so that a cessation of
work would not inconvenience them,
but owing to heavy orders Including
somo largo foreign orders, these surplus stocks of coal are steadily diminishing, and thero will come a''time
within the next few weeks when the
mine owners will be almost without a
Plan Simultaneous Strike
When this moment comes a great
minors' strike ill be Inaugurated. Tho
Socialists have, decided to exploit tho
strike as a huge demonstration now
against the 'government for withholding mnnhood suffrage for the Prussian
Dlot elections.
Tho simultaneous strike of nil thc
coal workers will paralyze tho Industrial lifo' of tho country. Factories
will' cease lo work, llio great cities
will bo plunged into darkness, railway
traffic will be suspended, A torriblo
blow will bo struck at tho Oormnn's
prosperity. This, nt nny rnto is tho
Socialists' intention,
Tlioy are making olabornte plana to
render Ihe , striko successful. Tho
Socialist trndo unions lmvo also negotiated with Rome of the smnllor trndo
unions consisting of Roman Catholic
workmen. TIichu latter trado unions
asked tho loadei'H of llio Ito mil n Catholic (Contor) party In Hie llolch»tng
tliolr opinion of Hiieh Htrllio. Through
thoRo Inquiries the Boelnllfltfl' plans
are now known to tho government.
Dilemma for Government
The government will bo hi a serious

Lanarkshire Executive and County *
Disputes . .**,
. ■ At a meeting "of the executive committee of ; the men several disputes
were under^consideration. *.
-.Regarding the tonnage rate dispute
at. Starryshaw colliery,-- near Fauld-
house,,lt was reported that the proposed .reduction had been withdrawn until
March" 2nd, the arbiter meanwhile examining again the sections to ascertain whether any change in the working, conditions had tatceif place to justify any,alteration below,the proposed
award. . .'.•_*-'■"       ,    ..
Mr. Tonner announced that the reduction, of 4d per ton in the rates in
a section of Daldowle colliery had
been withdrawn for a week to permit
of an. investigation being made into
the conditions of the disputed working
places. ..In connection with a further
dispute in a section of the. "pick" plaices in the same colliery Mr. Thomas
Sullivan,* Uddlngston, was appointed
to make an inspection.   .
Regarding the threatened stoppage
at Ross,Colliery, Hamilton, Mr."Murdoch reported that he had met the representatives of the firm and discussed the matter in dispute.^ An advance
ln rates had been conceded and the
men had agreed to accept it on trial.
At Allantori' colliery Mr. Murdoch
reported some wage difficulties had
arisen in a few places and as the
working conditions were, not clearly
understood lt was' agreed that Mr. Ha-
mil of the executive committee should
make an examination of the places and
report. It was also stated, that the
wages of the men employed in the
back shift to fill "cundy" coal were
under the staridard, and lt was decided that the agent should claim an
advantage" of rates\for this special labor. . ,-     '•'   '   V      '     .   ;"
Regarding the tonnage rate dispute
at' Greenfield colliery, Burnbank, fMr.
Murdoch reported that a ballot,vote of
tho men had now been taken, and had
shown a majority of fully two to one
in favor of stoppage of work. It was
stated that. the reason that so many
had voted against the strike was due
to1 the fact that the ballot had been
left open to all the workmen, including
oncost men and others who were not
directly concerned in the dispute.
The executive took it that nearly, all
the miners who were affected by the
dispute were in favor of stopping of
work, and. in- view of this the agent
was authorized to, bring out the men
at^whatever date might be found convenient. .   y
The Strike at Kilwinning     ■""J
Intimation has.been made that the
Ayrshire Miners Union had resolved
at a meeting "held at 'Kilmarnock to
support the Kilwinning men on strike
both financially and otherwise.'This
decision was;arrived, at after the formal declaration of the ballot and after

A stranger visiting Fernie for thejirst time and-noticing the many evidences of the last disastrous fire might
naturally he expected to ask< for enligthenment regarding
it, and if he were fortunate-(i.e. for him) to meet one
•who had the misfortune to be one of the sufferers of
the. several destructive fires that have visited this burg,
he would no doubt hear the. relation of events that-are
decidedly vivid in the minds of all who were actors in'the
lurid drama.
After listening io the tale of havoc wrought, he
would be justified in assuming that although every com-
, munity should take precautions against fire, that a city
that had passed through such an experience as Pernie,
would almost he suffering from an obsession of a fire-
fighting disease (pyromania) and that every means known
to science would be in evidence, and that safeguards
for the escape from this dread destroyer in every building would be almost- as numerous as to border upon impedimenta.        "   '., ' *
Whal does a visit through the city demonstrate? Despite by-laws passed for.ihe protection of life and property that they are glaringly ignored and instead of
buildings being completely equipped as they, ought to
be, practically no provision is made for the escape of the
occuants in the event of an outbreak of fire.
We have Spoken to some of those who are responsible for these defections, only ;to hear the old" time ex-
' cuse. "It is quite a big bill of expense to put in fire escapes, ropes in every room, etc." We wish to arouse
our citizens to this deplorable state of affairs, and would
also urge upon the Canadian representatives of the I.
C. M. A, to follow the steps taken by the members of
that organization in the United States, and insist that all
hotels throughout the district shall be furnished with the
requisite apparatus for uso in the caso of need.
The holocaust. Jn Hungary, the frightful catastrophe
in Chicago, the recent Taber fire all bring out prominently the Inadequate means at hand to cope with the
situation, and with the past, record of Fernie no.timo

The.subject of hygiene (or in plain English health,)
of the home is as old as the days when our prehistoric
mother swept up the leaves of the lair bf herself and
hairy mate; with the branch of a-.tree net so much probably from a hygenic motive as that of personal comfort,
but nevertheless unconsciously laying the foundation of
household science. ,
Many thousands of sermons have been preached, and
written on the subject, but have borne so little fruit that
even in, our enlightened 1910 the very essentials of hygiene, the principles of health in the home, have to be
constantly drummed into people-_)robably in a large majority to be absolutely neglected. And yet it. iiTmerely
the science of ordinary,* every-day common sense;
I do not at present propose to go Into the subjects of
disposal of refuse, sewage, water supply, ventilation, etc.
but will touch only upon points of vital interest to us
Dwellers^of the Valley. " ' *■"
Typhoid fever is a semi-annual visitor and though the
deatli rate is here comparatively low, the economic loss
is tremendous, Yet it is a disease that could.be entirely
eradicated if a little care were exercised in the HOME.
Of course impure water supply and deficient sewage system may be blamed, hut even under such conditions immunity can be had.
All water, not derived from pure mountain streams,
or-springs, and which does not come through a properly
constructed water supply system, should be well boiled
before being put to any domestic use whatsoever, whether
for drinking or washing.
Many people consider that if they boil impure water
for drinking purposes, they have performed their whole
duty so far as the water is concerned. They forget that
unboiled impure water used for washing the hands and
face, clothing, or eating utensils, will* contaminate these.
The water for cleansing .purposes should be boiled,, as
well as the drinking water if impure. We are often told
tljat it is not necessary tb boil ttie.water of a certain well,
because it is clear as crystal. Every bacteriologist-
knows that the most limpid water may be laden . with
typhoid germs, t
■' Of equal importance to the water supply, is the "common house fly.. As a carrier of typhoid and other- diseases this pest ranks supreme in the animal kingdom in
this part of the world at least.
- It* is hatched and obtains its ' food in environments
where disease is.most rife and on its hairy legs, wings
and body carries away masses of germ-bearing material
to be deposited upon carelessly exposed articles of human
diet, table, utensils, etc.    .
And the irony of it is that the fly, in its one hygenic
act of removing the accumulated dirt from its body, poisons the'food that, we humans unhygienically leave ex-
.       **■*. ■•
Flies should be kept out of the house by" screens,—
Well-Fitting Screens, on doors and windows. Meat,
cooked or uncooked, milk and other foods must be protected by coverings, or by being put away in fly proof
cupboards. -. . * ,      '      .
Slops, tea leaves, bits of food and refuse must not
be thrown about tho promises, but bo placed in covered
metal receptacles temporarily, or preferably, burned.
Always remember that anything which, when left behind,
is capable of decomposition, is bound to attract ' flies,
whose larvae, or grubs, require decomposing material for
.food. Every fly. in the houso is a menace to health,
and one housefly may cause n man's death., Protection,
not cure, Is the only ablutJbn.
Tho practice of scattering fly papers about tho house
Ie; unsightly, disastrous (especially if thoy should bo In-
ndvprlontly snt upon) and Is on the principle of closing
the stablo door nfter tho horso'has boon stolen. Do not

Gentlemen,—We .have ■ gone? into the
matter of Duilding'a school in the
Annex and.find that same will cost
$4,400.to build. ...,"/
The block will take about ?500
to clear; the purchase of the' Barton lot will require ?i00O ,and the
clearing of the present school and

ihat we would" be sure to call for
the issue of debentures for $7,000
to cover the above.
We.Intend putting the school on

and if deemed advisable the city can
use a portion of the same for their
fire hall sub-station.
In connection with the running expenses ot the school for tho     year

Gentlemen.—We,- the.Works and Property committee,- having made a
careful inspection of'all the streets,
avenues and lanes both in tbe Annex and the City proper, with a
view to finding out, what work is
advisable to be done this year, beg
to report as follows:
It is our desire to provide access
to every lot in the Annex, and to
to accomplish this end; it will be
necessary to do: a certain amount
of work on*every Btreet and' lane
therein. S.ome streets we desire tt
clear from side td side, as we believe the number * of houses f acin
on these streets warrant the.making
of them respectable. The work to be
done consists of stumping and grading. '.7,. ' '■  *',
'   '    .     *   <t
The work to be done in the north
end consists*: chiefly in'the 'pulling
and removal of ^ a large   number   of
stumps, also the  grading  of     very
St. and Davies Street.
On the 29th inst. we ordered a
stump puller known as the Hercules
No. 2, manufactured* ia Oenterville,
la., the estimated .cost delivered being $igo. '■   ' - ,'yi.. -'i-yyi 7"
.We ;'also recommend the purchasing
of another team" for city work during the summer.'' This, we believe,
will" prove a gboaV investment, as
one"'tenia is continually needed . "on
the stump-puller, and;the other", at
sprinkling, hauling away stumps ,and
grading.' <■-

Britain Mine Inspection
Duties of Mine
Duties of Inspectors. Frequency and the
Thoroughness of Mine Examinations. A
new Feature Introduced as to Assistants.
Raising of the
(Mines and Minerals) '
In the second report of the British
Royal Commission on Mines, considerable space Is devoted to a review ot
the evidence "given at its numerous
meetings, by representatives of the
miners, colliery managers, owners and
As the inspection of mines hy government inspectors in Great Britain,
which was first established in 1844,
has been to a great extent the model
for our American system of mine inspection, the recommendations of the
Commission on Improvement in the
British system of inspection will be
of interest to the readers of Mines
and Minerals.
Evidence submitted to the Commission on the adequacy of the, present sys-
■ tem  of  mine  inspection,     which  of
course was the individual opinion of
each witness, varied greatly.
The duties which British mine   in-
■ spectors are called upon to perform
are classified in the British Home Office as follows:
1: Visits to mines and quarries for
the purpose of seeing whether tho acts
are complied with.
2:^Attendance at inquests on* fatal
accidents which have occurred in the
mines and quarries.
3: Prosecutions of owners or agents
or managers of the mines, or officials
of mines, for any." breaches of the
4: The preparation of an annual report to, the Secretary of State, the preparation of special reports that may
bo called for by the Home Office, and
the collection and tabulation of the
statistics for the district.
5: General correspondence and conferences with tho Home Office and
with the owners and other persons interested.        '
The evidence given the Commission
by the Homo Office indicated that by
an underground inspection, included
in t^e first requirement is generally
meant inspection "by sample" and not
a1 complete and'thorough examination
-of all the underground workings of a
mine. 1
Ia complete inspection would be only
made-in exceptional cases where the
mine is very small or, in the case of a
largo mine, where there is reason_ to
suspect irregularities or bad"niaifag.
 m_i*i 4-    *
The representatives of the working-
men joined issue with this interpretation of the law, and contended that an
inspection which extends only to a
portion of a mine cannot be effective.
The' inspectors of mines informed the
Commission that they' made no attempt to inspect every part of each
mine thtroughly, and they contended
was one inspector for every 15,000 or
20,-00 persons employed,
The .Commission considered very
carefully the evidence on this subject,
and made an exhaustive report. Their
findings' were that the complete ' arid
minute examination of each district of
a mine, such as is made by colliery officials, is not necessary to enable the
inspector to ascertain whether the
laws are observed, but the area chosen
for inspection should be sufficiently
large to give an inspector a good idea
of the whole colliery. In -exceptional
cases, where irregularities are discovered or where a mine is considered to
be dangerous, the examination of a
part of the mine would probably not
be adequate and the inspection should
extend to all the workings of the
mine, and it should be kept under the
special observation of the inspectors
until all the defects found there are
This policy has been generally pursued by the inspectors in the past..
That in any revision of the staff of inspectors there should be a* readjustment between the size of the staff and
tlie work of the district, and an important consideration in, the readjustment
should be the increase of work which
has been placed on the inspectors in
recent years by the increase of mining
legislation, as for instance that applying to the use of explosives, electricity,
The Commission recommends that
as much of the inspectors' time as possible should be available for actual underground inspection and that there
should be at least one thorough inspection of each mine annually, besides the
supplementary visits which may be necessary in connection with accidents
and other matters, In view of the
considerable number of fathl accidents,
and serious non-fatal accidents, calling
for investigation, a large number of
underground inspections will be necessary in the more dangerous collieries,
in addition to the annual inspection,
and further visits-may be required in
order that the inspector may satisfy
himself that'defects to which he may
have drawn attention have been remedied. Where a serious accident occurs,, the mine management is aware
that a visit will probably be paid by
the' inspector, and to this extent the
inspections naturally expected; but in
sions recommends the present practice
of making inspection without any notice whatever to the mine officials. The
Commission also recommends a continuance of the present methods of investigating all fatal and serious nonfatal accidents, and the attendance of
tho inspector or one of his assistant inspectors at coroners' Inquests, as their
ing the sufficiency of .timbering, shot
firing and kindred matters could be
dealt'-with .by them .with advantage.
Besides," there are many details of
which they,would have special knowledge which would prove very valuable
to the higher grade inspectors. These
men should not be debarred from promotion to the higher inspectorships,—
but they should only be promoted after passing the same examination as
given tho higher inspectors. The adoption of thi3 system would tend'to
economy as such men can be obtained
for less salary than the higher inspectors, and it would facilitate the moro
frequent inspection of mines. Of course
examination by one of these men of
lowor qualifications ought not to dispense with an examination by an inspector of the higher grade, but it
would greatly assist tho work of the
present inspectors, because they could
send their new subordinates to see
those points which the latter are competent to deal with leaving themselves
free to devote their attention to matters of greater intricacy and difficulty.

considered they wore not expected to

rete Boulard et Sloan, qui le recher-
chaient depuis quelque temps. Devansi
aura a repondre a-une accusation tres
grave. Voici ce que le plaignant dans
cette affaire, Raphaele Montilo, racon-
te. "
Lo 10 fevrier dernier, alors qu'il etait
attable avec des compagnons de la rue
Vit're, Devansi et Joseph Rosano en-
irereiut le revolver au polhg et Iui de-
manderent rde;,.verser $200 seance te-
nnnte, s'il ne voulait pas mourir. Montilo parvlnt.. a s'esquiver, sans qu'oh
nit pu lul faire de mal'. .Vers miniiit,
le meme soir, il entralt chez Iui lors-
qu'au coin des rues Vltre et S.-CharleB-
Borroinee, Devansi et Rosano saute-
rent sur lul et pendant que l'un le te*
nalt 1'autre Iui entailla Ie visage avec
un razoir, lul faisant une hldeuse blessure. par laquelle le sang coulait en
abondanco. Montilo s'affaissa pendant
que les deux agresseurs se sauvaient.
Des passants releverent Ie balafre qui
fut transported l'hopltal.
Deux jour's,apres, etant sufflsamm-
ent retabl il retourha chez Iui, et app-
rlt que sa femme, sous les menaces de
Devansi et Rosano, avait du quitter ia
Dans l'lntervalie l'un des, assaillants,
celul qui a ete arrete, dut se faire sbi-
gner a l'hopltal pour une blessure qu'll
avait recue a l'abdomen. Par qui et
comment?   II n'a jamais voulu le dire.
Six jours apres l'attentat, ■ Guiseppe
Rosant etait ylctlme d'une agression
commise rue G.-George, comme nos lec-
tcurs s'en souviennent. Lul aussi fut
transporte n 1'hopltal; mais toujours,
meme en face-de la mort, il se renfer-
ma dans le plus profond mutisme.    .
Ce n'est qu'hler que Montillo est ve-
nu raconter son ay enture du 10 fevrier
au chef de la Siarete. Ce matin l'un
des accuse a ete ecroue au poste central. L'autro, Rosano, qui e3t. encore

Enrico Ferri da la Colpa all industria

II noto criminalogista e discepolo di
Lombroso Enrico Ferri dichiara che

della criminallta tra i minorenni, e il
risultato dell' uso del. vapore come
forza" matrice, nelle Industrie e nelle
In una recente discusslone sulla pr<H
valenza del delitti in Italia, Ferri fu
di conyinzione che e" dovuto alia de-
generaziono fisica del' uomo, la rotura
della vita di familigia l'aumcnto della
schiavitu bianca e altri pericoli.
Tutti questi pericoli sono rintracciati
in turno dal generale malessere che
regna nella presente condizione indus-
triale, e tutto causato secondo Ferri
dall'uso del vapore nelle fattorie ed
L'unico rimedio per questo stato dl
cose secondo Ferri resta, colla utlllza-

questo slstema dl forza motrlce dov-
rebbe rldurre lo ore dl lavoro, ed ab-
ollre il lavoro notturno, cui secondo
Ferri, e il modo piu imperativo dal pun-
to di vista criminologlco.
II nuovo stato di cose e di impianti
che gla fu incomtnclato In alcune parti del Belglo e degll Stati Unlti, dove
le machine da cucire si muovonoi per
mezzo di forza elettrica, materlalmente
rldussero le ore dl lavoro. Le machine
da cucire furono abolite nelle fattorie
e le donne lavorano nelle proprie case
colle machine elettriche. Questo
slstema pure ridusse le ore dl lavoro.
Ferri inoltre dichiara" che in capo
