"The Duke of Wellington's dispatch
"dated Waterloo,' the 19th June, states
that on the preceding day, Buonaparte
attacked, with his whole force, the
British line supported by a corps of
Prussians; which attack,after a long
and sanguinary conflict, -terminated
In the complete overthrow of the enemy's army, with the .loss of one hundred and fifty pieces of canon and two

and two French Generals were taken.

-despair and conscience sate heavy, on
those arms which were raised against
their  sovereign, against their oaths,
and against the peace and happiness
.of- thGlfy.cpu.nlry.* - -We confidently aV
ticip'nto' a great and immediate defection from the Rebel cause.    We   are
aware that a great part of tho French
nation looked to the, opening of   this
campaign with n superstitious expectation of suece-fl. to'1 a man,'--whom,
though many of tliem hatcd^ and many
of-Ihem feared, all had been taught to
look on as the first captain of the ago.
Ho himself went forth boasting ln his
strength, and still more In his talents.
He hnd for many years ridiculed Car;,
jiot's  plan  of a northern campaign,
1 nnd had openly vowod at Paris    to
break through the allied armies," instead of moving,, round   both   their
flanks..    With as littlo reserve had
ho declnred that ho would open   tho
campaign on the Mouse and Sambro.
In short, by'a refinement In finesse,
he had oxposotl his truo plnn imagining that nobody would bollovo that
sueh was his real Intention.    Wo do
not. dony thnt this plan might havo
boon dno of coiiRldorablo. ability, but
ho did not take Into account that he
was to bo opposed to ability superior
to his own, that unpalatable truth his
vanity would not allow him to   bo-
llevo nor would It easily find crodlt

Last Saturday
On Saturday, June Ilth, Mike Dan-
hus and Steve Kozlowskl, Austrlans,
engaged as miners in No. 3 chute No.
6 mine, Hosmer, came to their death
as a result.of a fall of coal.
At about 8.30 Jno, Musgrove, Pit
Boss, went up to the working face
of the chute, where the two men were
working.'' From there he went on his
rounds and did riot notice anything
out of-the ordinary, and on coming
back In company with another miner
named Harrison saw the coal* running
down the chute "lh ■ abnormal quantities. '  ■   ,
He immediately suspected that all
was not right, and started to go up to
the lop of the chute, but such a quantity of coal .was coming down that he
was prevented. A large volume df
gas was released which put out the
lamp of the, pit boss. Harrison was
still with him and they,both jumped
a distance of about 50 feet to get to
the second crosscut, shouting to the
men to come down., When they got
to the crosscut two ttmberpackers
were packing some timber up to the
working face, and they also told them
to clear out. ;        , ;
The coal was running ancl had filled the chute and running over in .the
manway, and filling up the' mouths
of the crosscuts. Musgrove, Harrison
and one of the timber packers were
able to got into the,crosscut, but when
Bnock Domino, one bf the tlmbcrpack-
ers, who was last, tried to get through
the trap door into the crosscut he was

Domino finding that he. could not

was blocked up also, thereby cutting
off all avenue of escape. He took up

ten mile radius of the Frank slide.
That so uuacademic a word as "bum"
(which by the way was in inverted
commas,) should have been sufficient
to be considered "an attempt to knock
Blairmore" (knock in the original as
expressed in "quaint and academical"
style is minus these useful quotation
marks) should have called forth so
rhetorical an effusion proves the truth
of the old saying "great oaths from little corns grow."   ■
The effort, to    make    out   a caso
against us is' decidedly labored as tho
headlines  should     convince  oven   a
"Vindicator", but for the edification
of our critic and also for any who did
not read the District Ledger of May
28, we reproduce:
.. "Doings ln  District IS.     Before
making changes miners should make
sure" of conditions.
Blairmore: A very unsatisfactory
state of affairs prevails here and
some of the workers are themselves
not'fre. from blame. If the work-
■ era would think a little of others
and less of themselves they would
do better both'1 for themselves and
others; in one short word, "bum"
expresses the Blairmore situation."
"Our intention was to call the* attention of the miners' to the very unsatisfactory state existing in Blairmore, in
so far as it affected them in their pursuit for employment, and not for the
purpose of advertising any of the businesses located in this pretty village,
for this we would have deemed a
breach of professional etiquette, for
the very simple reason that it would
have been a trespass on the preserves
oil our captious critic, whose deductions, from his - article, clearly show
him to be much more interested in
the impersonal things than iri the welfare of human beings.
We are more concerned about the
latter and the fact that building is in
progress, the real estate men and others are progressing is of small moment
except that we sincerely hope with
true fraternal spirit that ye editor is
likewise sharing therein.
We will display our "crass ignorance," but not our-envy and ask for a
little enlightenment from our self constituted mentor touching the, conditions of labor that, obtain at thc Rocky
Mountain Cement Company. Is it
true that men are working there for
12 hours and that-because of the nature of their occupation they are compelled- for this long working-day to
wear masks? * Is it nol so hard upon
obtain money enough lo gel' some
more agreeable and lucrative labor,
that they do not delay in so doing?
0 Furthermore while-*-we know, that
there nre, some men in Blairmore, as
ir. -jir.iclnti.ly every,rtlicr camp, that
receive a goodly* sum*' each -month,
still they are the exception and not the
rule: "One summer does not make a
swallow." If to tell the truth Is to
knock, then "the soft Impeachment we
must own," but until we have more
conclusive evidence than that already
vouchsafed by our cotem that wo ha ve
made any mls-statemonl wo certainly
shall nol retract as we leave it to the
judgment of any fair minded, person
If we havo said anything that will affect,.the "prosperity' of the real estate or other businoss enterprise nnd
moreover we most' energetically object to 'the attempt to throw nny
blame upon us bocauso -of a fancied
wrong "or a distorted mental vision.

Sensational developments are expected in the action for .damages
brought by Bert Cummlngs Richards,
son1 of Sheriff Richards, against Dr
R. Ford Verrinder, as registrar-treasurer of the provincial board of, dental
examiners, and the other examiners,
who in 1909 refused to grant him a license to practice on th'e grounds that
he Had"failed in his examinations.
The case has been before the courts
in'one'form and another for a long
time past, and the suit for damages
follows the examination of records
which the .dental board was ordered
to place in the hands of W. ,T. Taylor,
K. C, plaintiff's counsel, and which
includes the examination papers executed by Richards.' The plaintiff takes
the ground, that he was fraudulently
and wilfully prevented from passing
this examination by the examiners.
According to his allegations he graduated from the' Philadelphia Denial
Collei-e i'n 1909, ob'uin-ng 'bird pJ-i'-p.
Upon taking examinations here he was
informed tliat'he-had failed in both
the writteirand oral-examination, and
made a request that tho examiners
furnish him with an account of* his
marks and his papers. Dr. Verrinder,
who was registrar treasurer of the
board, refused to grant* the request,
■upon-^Avhich-'Richards—applied—for ar
writ of-mandamus which Mr. Justice
Irving refused.
When the present - damage, action
was commenced the defendants made1
nn application to have it dismissed on
the ground that It. was frivolous, and
vexations.' This' application was dis-
.missed by both the lower courts and
the Court of Appeal and an order was
made later compelling the other members of the examining board, outside
of Dr. Verrinder to come to Victoria,
for examination. The examination
of Dr, Verrinder was set for yesterday, but stood over until Monday, On
Tuesday the other mcbors of the ex-
amnllng board will bo examined for
discovery.   ." .
Bowser, Reid and Wallbrldge, Vancouver, havo been, retained by tho defence, which will urge that It was justified in refusing to show the plaintiff
his marks and papers.

llniu being,
On Tuesday morning Henry Munkwltz, master mechanic at the Elk
Lumber company, whilst in the discharge of his duties, met with an accident which resulted in his death on
Thursday. ,
From information   obtained   it ap-,
pears that the unfortunate man was
attempting to put a bell on a pulley,
using a stick for the purpose, and in
some   inexplicable     manner   it   was
caught up and hurled with such force-
that a wound was inflicted in the abdomen, and although ah operation was
performed to drain off the cxtravasat-
cd blood and every    care known    to
medical science given, the patient had ■
had received too severe a shock to the
systom lo rally, and passed away   on
Thursday .morning.
Deceased was a native of Germany,
51 years of age, but had long been a.
resident of Fornie and was hold in
high esteem by his employers, and
also respected by the many friends,
who all unite in speaking his praise.'
Heartfelt sympathy is expressed for
the grief stricken wife, who with five
children survive him.

SAN FRANCISCO", June 15—Sir R.
A. 1-ladfield, once president of the Iron
and' Steel Institute of Great Britain,
inventor ot manganese stee) and one
of the most prominent manufacturers
of war materials in the world, has arrived in tho United States accompanied by Lady Hadfiold, who is a sister
of lhe United States Attorney General Wlckersham. The distinguished
couplo are making a leisurely tour of
the world.
Sir Robert has boon for thirty years
the bead and owner of tho Hadfiold
Steel Fouudry Ltd., of Sheffield, Eng.,
whero most of the projectiles for the
British government nre -.mnde. Interviewed here Sir Robert, said he and
,Lady lladfield left England last December and' had visited Egypt, Ceylon. Rangoon, Singapore, Hongkong,
Shanghai. .Jajmn, China and Honolulu.
In Tokio tliey were presented to the
Emperor and Empress of Japan.
Discussing the Oriental question Sir
Robert said thai lie had plenty of opportunity to'correclly gauge tho sltua-
' lion.
a "England, America and Japan will
in iho future be ihe ruling' powers of
the world. If Japan will be guided
by the older counsels'of Encland and
America she will havt a mighty future.. Remarkable progress is observable everywhere in Japan. Japan is
only too anxious to preserve good feeling with America, to cement her alliance with England arid to' have a
peaceful future in which to1 expand educationally and commercially.
"Japan admires England,   but * she
sagely and firmly says: England, you
must keep up your end.     You must
not lot any nation beat you with the
fleet,-     Japan is anxious for England.,
lo  maintain the    supremacy    of the
seas.     One very extraordinary feature
of, our visit lo-   Japan  was  that we
never saw any poverty, and not a single beggar, came to us for a penny.
>   "There will be a greater.awakening
in the Orient than tlie world has ever
dreamedNof..    The Japanese    have a
surplus population and as Ihey. are becoming-so-highly trained and will accomplish _tlmosfreverything-the-Japan**-
ese should be encouraged lo make the
world advance, for a general commercial advantage all around would, accrue.
I am firmly convinced that some
day China will be the metallurgical
centre of the world, for she possesses
enormous resources of untold magnitude. , Iron, coal, copper and lead are
thero in immense quantities. Curiously enough, my voyage across tho
' Pacific Ocean to San Francesco was
tho beginning of a Chinese epoch, for
we carried tho first cargo of Chinese
pig iron.'

sale ancl importation of matches made
with white phorphorous.
.Nearly all the countries of Europe
have either' prohibited the use of the
white phosphorous or endeavored to
restrict most stringently its use.
But, of course, America has done nolhing,
" Ohio, New York, Pennsylvania, Oklahoma have endeavored to prevent employers from using children of tender
years in match manufacture, but they
do not succeed even in that. - •
And so America enjoys the distinction of being in this as in many other
matters the most barbarous country in"
t he world.
An inquiry has been made into the
subject by John B. Andrews, which is
now published in Bulletin SG of J he
Bureau of Labor at Washington.
It is not pleasant reading, especially
that part which deals witha'score ot
more workers who have been poisoned
in this industry.
Anna was one of the match girls-
who died of phosphorous poisoning.
'" She began work at fourteen years of
age. After she had worked a few
months she felt sensitive to cold and
heal in a tooth that had beon filled.
The tooth was finally extracted and
it was discovered that at""tho roots of
it there was pus from a poisonsd jaw,
An abeess extended down the side
of the neck and tho bones woro involved. -    ■
Sho suffered terrible agony; could
not eat and slowly starved to death
as a result of the poison.
The story of Anna is Jusi that of one
little girl, but tho scientific investiga-'
tor at Washington tells of many other
girls and boys who have suffered like
Ilo speaks of one old woman, who as
a result of poisoning hud lost her lower jaw altogether, and for twonty years
sbe had masticated her food by pressing il against her upper jaw with her
thumb. " *    '
The investigator al AVashington tells
us there is a harmless substitute for
white phosphorus thatjs readily available.
AA'hy then, wo ask is not this substitute used?
The answer is very simple, says the
investigator frankly: "Many manufacturers would gladly ,dQ so, but it, costs
just a little more to make the non-
poisonous matches."
- And for that most excellent Christian reason Anna suffered agonies ami
died and an old woman uses her poor
old thumb for a lower jaw for twenty

MONTREAL, June 13—Between 20
and 30 people are believed to have lost
their lives this morning at 10.30 when
the supports of the sprinkler* system
of tho tank on the roof the Herald
building gave way, and the great mass
of metal and water weighing 35 tons,
went crashing downward tp the basement, ' In its fall it look with il men,
women and machinery, and then when
aH lay in a jumbled mass at the bottom fire broke oui and added io its
horrors. No ono knows how many lie
dead in the pile of debris that fills
ihe basement. All the afternoon the
firemen wore engaged in demolishing
tottering walls that had to'come down
before the work of rescuing the bodies could be safely attempted, and it
was not until six o'clock thai the first
remains, charred and mangled beyond
recognition were brought out from'the
Warning Unnoticed
All of those who escaped agree that
lho-jfirst warnings of the impending
disaster passed almost unheeded and
unnoticed. There was a slight creak-,
ing, Lhen somewhat more'pronounced.'
Then those who looked up at the ceiling saw that the, plaster was falling,
Some started fov the stairways but
before they could reach them came the
great crash. , Some of tliem felt the
floor sinking beneath thoir feet and
some of the survivors tell of falling
ono or two stories before the awful
crash died away and then found themselves, ablo to crawl in the dense dust
to a0placo of safety. . Thc majority
found safety by rushing lo the front
of the building facing on Victoria Sq?
Fortunately all the floors' hold for 30
back from the front wall and to this
! is due the fact that thc death list docs
not run into the hundreds, for there
wero nearly ,- three hundred people in
the building al the time the accident
took place'.
Display of Heroism
, People passing the building hoard
the crash and some one turned in the
fire alarm from a nearby box. The
first ladder was on the scene inside
of two minutes and the firemen found

There were some real examples of
heroism. A ladder was put up t'o the
fourth floor where the binders were,
and-it came near to ono window and
not far from another. From this latter a little girl crept along the casing
until she could reach the ladder. This
she grasped with one hand and with
the' other lent a helping hand to other
girls twice her own size. When nil the
girls had reached the ladder and been
brought down in safely she came down

fire had started and smoke was pouring from tho front windows through
which she was compelled to gropo her
way, When she reached the bottom
of the ladder she fainted.
Sensational Rescue
A dozen Injured . persons were
brought from tho ruins by the firemen,
many of thom with broken limbs. Of
those rescues, that of Fred Vidnl, a

Editorial Department Safe
.All the members of the editorial.department escaped uninjured as the
water taiil. did not wreck the front of
the building where the editorial rooms
were located. At 2 o'clock-lhe flames
were under'control. Thc dead at this
hour are estimated at 15, and the firemen are now searching the ruins for
bodies. . .,, *   .
Three Hundred Employees
In tlie Herald building there were
about 300 employees all told, "most of
them being near the front of the
building. ' Had it not boen. for this
the death ..list would have been, much
larger. The-.Herald took possession
of the destroyed buildipg five years
ago on Labor day of this year. ■ It
consisted of five floor aud a .basement, each of the floors being separated into two parts by a stone dividing
wall, the complete length of the building. The tank which caused the damage was built over four years and on'
the rear of the building, Below it
were a hundred girls at work. Most
of these were in the fore part of the
flat so* that the death list was somewhat modified. . Below the bindery is
the stereotyping plant and composing
room in which there were about 75
printers on the machines and at lhe
presses. The engraving room was
right under the tank. The stereotype
plant was also.lmmediately below the
lank and the men there got the full
force of the crash.
Awful Crash
Nearby are linotype maciilnes, and
those nt the* south end of the row of
machines were caught in thg rush of
debris, and swept to the floors below.
In'the roar end'of the flat below'is
the job composing room in which'there
were twenty men working at the
cases. Below this again is the editorial department. The editors and
reporters have rooms in the front and
all escaped with slight injuries! In
tho rear were the are department and'
the society department. Those there
fortunately escaped as the tank seemed to have gone through between the
two rooms and ihe editorial department. The tank and tho debris that
accompanied'it stopped in great, part
at the next floor which is the business
offices and is on the main floor, Below the floor on which the tank fell
aro lho offices of the,* job department
and only, a doze/n clerks were at work
hero., Some of the debris smashed its
way through lho floor to the cellar,
and it is on the main floor and the
basement that the victims wore pinned down. Insurance on the building
and plant is estimated al $300,000.
The Western Federation of Miners,-
.the United Mino Workers, and even
othor workers will no longer quietly
submit lo, nor acquiesce, in- the' associated press literary contributions attributing appalling mining disasters as
"acts of God."* AVhilo man surmises
much but knows little of the real visitations of divine wrath, it is most
ungrateful to, charge such disasters as
enough' to buy food, it is not fair and
it is not.-common sense to say that
they enjoy the freedom to contract for
the sale of their labor.
"Many .women in their struggles for
food, and shelter, yes, and for life itself,'are willing, even eager, to work
long hours every day in every week
in the year, year in and year out; until
their,,bodies break under the strain.
But the wishes of. such women should
not be allowed to militate against the
welfare of womankind and of mankind
in general. When a woman, be she
maid or mother, h&_ worked in a factory ten long hours, she has toiled the
limit that the law of tbis country can
allow,       ;
"Must the selfish desire of a few
men.to sell more goods, to grind out
more orders, be allowed to stifle, the
needful demands of maidenhood and
of motherhood?"       .*   -    ' **

were lost, to such a cause. The credulity of such statements shifting "responsibility from human to the divine
shoulders will^iover go unchallenged
as long as human agencies could, as
in these cases, have anticipated and
thwarted the unnecessary loss of human life.
Had a decent regard for proper precautions, such as the laws of those
states provide for, been observed, the
disasters would not liave occurred,
Had proper shafting, proper arrangements for pumping of foul gases out
and pure air in been observed, each
of theso holocausts could have been
prevented, As long as vested Interests are paramount, to tho lives of
their subjects, just that long will such
ruses bo submitted to the people as a
balm to appenso the sorrow and misery of those who must bear tho real
burdens resulting from such unnecessary and untimely loss of life,
If confiscation of property p- prison

History of the Bitterest
and Longest Miners'
Strike Known
,(By J. B. McLaughlin iri.the Social-
Ijts, Review.), y,      ... ,.*■•   .'
"•On July 6,, 1909, *ivas inaugurated,
"what has turned out to be.the largest,
^longest and "bitterest strike of  'coal
miners'ever waged in Canada.     The
unique thing about.this fight ,is the
transformation of a*.trade union called
*' the Provincial Workman's Association
with a thirty years life behind it, into
; a" scab organization that welcomes into its ranks Imported" strike breakers
of every, kind and description.
* Thero are some 13,000 miners    ln
Nova Scotia, a third of whom up till
, t\\vo years ago belonged to the P. W.
A. For years the- miners', of this organization carried on a very unequal
""struggle against the Dominion    Coal
* Company, the .largest coal corporation
in Canada.    Sheer economic "necessity
,*.„ at length forced them to appeal to the
■ United Mine Workers of America' to
come over and organize them' into', a
•    district of that body.
The P. W. A." in its palmiest days
was never anything "but a little top
trade union-that was used by'the coal
companies to-make the men believe
.. . they were "organized. . .It was patted
on the back by politicians, press, pulpit
and profit monger and lauded to the*
skies, by these as an organization well
' able1 to look after every interest of the
'' mine workers.     Grand  Secretary is
. its highest office, and was for many
* years and still is, filled by John Mof-
■ fatt.-
Oily, smooth, pious; a man who invariably, when attacked, plays the roll
of'the martyr to tho limit. By birth
a Scotchman; by adoption a Canadian;
, by nature* a traitor; by' profession a
scab organizer; anu^by long and con-
, tinued habit the arch-lick-spittle of the
■ Dominion Company. Such Is the man
who fills the office of Grand Secretary of the P.W.A.'
At. the'behest of the. Coal Companies
this fellow called a convention of the
P. W. A. in May of 1908 'to put' a stop
to the agitation going on amongst the
men for the Introduction of the* U. M.
,. W. of A."   ' The convention met and
he*failed. '-''This convention decided
"  to take..a referendum vote as to whe-
";' ther,the miners of Nova Scotia should
_.__Qi_n_thelH__M. W. of A., or remain in
their choice, and March 1909, at length
arrived.*' Navigation was again about
to open and coal could be shipped by
the St. Lawrence;" The Dominion Coal
Company was in a dilemma. Greed
and fear filled their -hearts. Greed
said "Take back the men and make
profits' nofr." Fear pointed to the
strong, virile, aggressive organization
that .'would assuredly if it got a foot-,
hold; make a large inroad on the dividends in the future. A hurried meeting
of all the coal operators of the province was called, and met in the "town
of Truro, N.S., and a compromise between fear and greed was reached.
Each was sworn "not to deal in any
way, whatever with the U. M", W. of
A., but to sustain and do business with
the.P..W. A.".   '*
The locked out men were taken on
but they realized that the.cessation of
hostilities was only temporary, and on
July -1, 1909, over 'two* thirds of the
employees of the Dominion Coal Company walked --.out on-strike,, the remainder staying with the P. W. A.,
and giving,the glad hand of welcome
to every strike breaker and'"thug imported by the Dominion Coal Company.  ,
The fight was now on in dead earnest.', A month previous to the strike
the coal company had 625 special polico sworn in. Many of the "loyal"*P.
W. A. members, including John Moffatt, donned the tin badge of the corporation thug, which gave them the right
to swagger around town with a gun
on their hip. , ,600 soldiers and three
machine guns were rushed Into the
mining towns around Glace Day. During the summer months, especially ob
Saturday nights these gun men without reason • or warning would swoop
down on the town of .Glace Bay flaunting their naked knives in the air, and
hustle peaceable strikers from the
side walk into the street. The strikers wero arrested In scores on frivolous and trumped up charges and were
thrown into jail. Two continents were
ransacked and "everybody, that could
be induced to take a free trip to Glace
Bay,was given one in the hope that
he would remain there a strike break-
Scabs and thugs were expected
to break the strike, but they failed
One month after another sped away,
and the men still stuck to each other,
Meantime the coal company with its
loyal P. W.'A. men and its scabs and
strike breakers had managed to raise
their daily output a few thousand tons.
Winter again arrived; enraged at its
inability to break the strike with jails,
thugs and scabs and Dominion - Coal
Company like. another Nero or Nana
Sahib turned its ferocity against tender" women and little children. During
the past' month hundreds of mothers
with- crying,- clinging, trembling little
children hanging to their dresses, have
been evicted from their homes and
thrown out on' the streets in blinding
snow storms, with the glass ranging
from zero to 18 below. , ,   -
Neither youth, sex, age nor sickness
appealed successfully to theso pitiless
iron hearted ruffians. An. old and
obsolete law was resurrected and the
peoples belongiiigs\taken for back rent
and some families5 were left with'nothing but, what they stood up in at
.the time. "*.,.- ..,'-,
■ The strikers have weathered' the rigours of another Canadian' winter imbued with the spirit that it would be
tality had failed.    The men had^been
fighting for ten months for something
substantial and refused to go back to
work on promises which appeared to
them pretty little airy nothings.    The
mask was then dropped and seventeen
families were thrown on the, street.
Men out on suspended sentences were
arrested and placed in jail.  * One fel-
ow who had the hardihood to leave the
employ of these good, God fearing men
and join'the strikers, had his home
entered at midnight by a band', of
thugs and he and his family driven off
the "company's property" four hours after he had joined the XL* M. W. of A.
.The fight has cost the U.*M. W. of
A. three quarters of a million, and today preparations are under way to tie
up every mine in Nova Scotia, if a settlement is not effected at an, early
date.   - If. the other operators refuse
the* demand's of their men then we can
settle down for another year's fight.
The men here will win fighting or lose
fighting; give up till the* last dollar is
spent they never will.
. It has been a grand time for socialist propaganda.    Hundreds of the men
imported were the discontented of the
capitalist countries of Europe..   They
thought they saw an escape from capitalist, oppression by taking the free
passes that were handed to them   by
the Dominion  Coal  Company.     The
Coal Company thought it was importing scabs when it was really bringing
in men who shall be its grave diggers.
The writer visited a shack where sixteen of theso men were; a U. M. W.'A.
interpreter told them I was an officer
of the U. M. W.     They grinned and
nodd-ed; not one of them could speak
a word of English.     He then said I
was a member of Glace Bay Socialist
local.     That did the trick and in a
moment they were around me shaking
my hand and the grins gave place to
beaming faces.      *'
The.local comrades have taken.advantage while the miners were in a
mood to think and have spread the literature of ' socialism among ■ them,
where stoic ' conservatism .hitherto
reigned, it is how fast becoming red.
On the Whole the fight has been good
for us all. • „        ■     "

the P. W. A
On,June 24th the voto was taken,
and the.U. M. W. of A. came out on
top with a majority of 412. As soon
as navigation closed in ' November,
1908, the Dominion Coal Company at
onco locked out ono thousand men, and
expected that zero weather ancl starvation would crush out the'spllrt of
. revolt, that -Moffatt's silly, pious platitudes about patriotism had" failed.to
stay. ', Failuro again .was the result.
The men stuck to the organization of
better to fill a-freeman's gravellian a,
coward's job.   '   '.
Some weeks ago tho old management resigned which means that they
had conferred on them the ancient and
honorable Order of the Sack. A new
superintendent and general manager
were appointed." , Press and. pulpit
rang with the praises of these now
men.. For,, a few weeks all evictions
were stopped. Men were let out on
suspended sentences and honeyed and

number' of free miners licenses were
renewed at the end of May, according
to the statement from the'local court
house officials. It* is not generally
known that his majesty King George
V holds by full right a free miners
certificate in the Revelstoke Mining
division.   *
The renewal of this license     was
made on May 31 to King George V.,
who in payment of $5 in the right of
the Dominion of Canada is entitled to
all rights and privileges of a free miner, the certificate signed by W. E. Mc-
Lachlin being numbered 13440 B? The
manner in which King George holds
the license is iriterstlng.     In 1906 C.
Deutschman and A. Johnson discovered the famous "Deutschman Caves" in
the Selkirks east of here, and realizing the great value of their find   at
once proceeded to acquire .a title to
the land wherein the caves were located.   ^This apparently could pnly   be
done by taking up the land as mineral
claims which they did and staked on
the three ...claims names respectively
being * Skookum, Drum Lummon   and
Buckhorn Fraction, all situated near
Cougar creek near to Ross peak. After
these marvellous, caves had been explored the discoverers transferred the
licenses to the. Dominion government
who took over the mineral claims in
the name of the then reigning monarch
Edward, VII.    The holder of a mineral claim' in British Columbia must hold
a miner's certificate, and consequently
the license was issued from the local
office to th'e king.     On the death of
King Edward the -license was made
out in the name of King George V.
and the usual receipt for the license
has been made out and forwarded to
the  Dominion government, by W.  I.
Biggs, agent for the department    of
justice in Canada,- to be forwarded to
his majesty King George;      ,   '
• There is a sentimental valuo attached to the' ownership* of British Columbia miners' rights and the fact; that tha
king is one of the local mineral claim
holders is most interesting.
„ Ed. Chas. Deutschman made,the discovery.     Arthur Johnson and several
friends expended considerable, money
advertising them.    The C, P. R. tourist hotel at Glacier is only a few miles
distant from these marvellous   caves.

The recent trial of Rex vs. Varlov and Babcock, or
as it. is commonly known, the "Hold-up" case, has furnished many subjects for debate. Whatever may have been the
opinion regarding tlie innocence or guilt of the accused,
the verdict of the jury should end all further discussion
on that point. The only matter wliich may, properly
be discussed and that, without any bearing which it may'
have upon any special case, is the law under wliich jurors are selected, throughout the Province, other than tho
Coast. Cities. , ■ .
It is not. many years ago since the whole of the
interior of the,province, especially East and West Koot-
* enay, was inhabited mostly by Indians. There was, under such primitive conditions the "impossibility of applying such jury laws as were applicable to the populated
parts. In fact Courts, of Assizes were seldom held outside of the coast towns, and when they were, court sat
under such shelter as might be found, and when nothing
better could be obtained the proceedings were conducted
in the' open. In the .early history of British Columbia,
the making of the law was vested in the Governor of the
colony, as it was then known. On the' 8th of March,
I860, Governor Douglas ' issued a'proclamation dealing
with the selection of grand and petit juries. In that
proclamation' we read the following:
"And whereas in many parts of British Columbia,
"there is found to be great difficulty in procuring, on
"proper occasions a sufficient number of British subjects
"to sit upon' grand and petit juries.'
' The law by proclamation did service throughout Her
.Majesty's Colonies of British' Columbia and its dependencies, until'the year 1883. when the-Jurors Act was pass-
and downs in life, yet should an "individual come from
another locality and state that ho had been fortunate
enough to escape them, a short residence in our miOsi
would compel the admission that, no longer could immunity be claimed'from the common lot of humanity.    .
The gait is the direct opposite of that of a seafaring
man, which is of the lateral order, this being more on
the vertical or in more ordinary and better understood
parlance, a kind of humpty-dumpty movement. A short
walk about the city will be all that Is needed to explain
the reason, viz., tho very many variations of unequal
grades that prevail. The sidewalks in some places look
as though a slight earthquake shock had been experienced
as the billowy appearance most assuredly lends color to
this theory. If the urievenness were limited to a few
inches it would mot be so bad, still there are places where
it is nearly a foot.' We must congratulate somebody for
the reparation that has recently been made near the
Trites-Wood store, and the thanks of the community are
due to whoever brought the two sidewalks flush as it
has long been a menace to foot passengers and more especially to those who'wheeled baby buggies. For the
present we are going to call attention to one avenue,
and that McPherson. Go down past the post office, and
(lie provincial jail, and then to the top of the hill; before
lhe descent is made down on to the old recreation
ground, turn to the right, 'and you are on an avenue
which sadly needs attention. Stroll along and there are
two features that will strike the passer by, and that is
tho care taken of the gardens and the lawns Is the very
opposite to, what obtains "in regard to the roadway.
Piles of rock, stumps of trees, tin cans of all sizes ancl
brands, The sidewalk is so high that serious accidents
may result if one fall, and more especially to children.
Not, only would the fall give one a shock, but if the tumble
happened at certain, spots very severe injuries might bo
We know there is a lot of work to be done, but this
particular avenue is an eyesore and the, residents on il
are entitled to some consideration. To grade it properly
is quite a heavy undertaking, iind will necessitate many
thousand cubic feet of filling, yet that does not prevent
it being made more presentable at no great outlay.

,'ed. Much of what had then become a province still
remained a practical wilderness inhabited by aborigines
and a few prospectors and traders. The Jurors' Act
was limited in its operations to.the Coast Cities. The
Proclamation Law remained in force and still remains in
force in all other sections of the province. There has
been mn extensive development of what- before that time
had been inaccessible forest regions. Whero one "had
to travel on foot or with cayuse over bridle paths, and
through territory having no trails at all, we find not only
one, but In the majority of cases moro than one railroad
. cntaring the country. ,
Cities and towns have taken tlie place of the forest,
-so that it Is quite as easy to reach tho great interior of
British Columbia as It Is to got to tho coast.    Notwithstanding all this development, no change whatever has
boon mado ln the Jury Law,    Except for tho Coast Cities
a jury for the rest of tho province is chosen ln the way
that was dono fifty years ngo.    Undor tho Jurors Act the
Grand and Special Juries aro selected by officials appointed for that purpose from the Revised Register of
Voters,    Tho selection of jurors throughout the province
other than within tho coiiRt cities, is left, ln the hands of
tho sheriff' ,or a bailiff.     It Is impossible under such
conditions to have a jury selected that will bo entirely
favorable or <-n(iroly opposed   to lho   accused   parson,
Thero. is no good reason I'or vesting' in ono porson tho

We have championed the cause of oiir native country
on many occasions actuated by the sincerest of motives,
and also in the firm belief that our contentions were
well founded, but the report in a recent exchange, dealing

that by the-methods of treating a candidate for parliamentary honors in England, that British Columbia, not
to mention any other province so far outshines the Mother Country as "daylight doth a lamp," and ih fact the
treatment of an M. P. who has won his seat by "ways
that are dark and tricks' that are queer," is a direct blow
to incentive, and one calculated to dishearten those who
hunger for the spoils" of office. Delegates are sent from
this side of the water for different purposes, Technical
Education, Housing Problems, Labor conditions, and we
havo even the Hon. Theodore Roosevelt instructing the
British Government on the best manner of handling Egyptian affairs, yet„so far there has beon no,ono to give
lessons in how to run an election; such an unfortunate
omission should have Immediate and earnest consideration unless tho British electorate sink inlo u state of

Editor Ledger: .
In your issue of last' week you questioned the legality of reducing the circus license. ■ The Free Press criticised the conduct or rather misconduct
of the city in certain matters. When
the Press thus unite in outspoken condemnation of things the public may
well look foi' beneficial results. As
to. the circus matter tliere is' no doubt
whatever that if the council or anyone else reduced the license fee an illegal act was.committed, just as much
so as if one trader were made to pay
one fee and another a differential one.
The Council may pass by-laws but neither it nor any of its officials has the
legal power to suspend them or their,
operation. To a* professional * man
liko myself it is quite evident that in
many respects Fernie works its laws
not according to the spirit thereof so
much as it does according to caprice
or whims.. ' Is it *not too true that
crime is licensed? In the last .analy-
sis'it will be found that the law is not
fairly administered there being too
much of th'e fish or one and flesh of
another style.
The indifference of the • ratepayers
as to thc expenditure of their money
lias seemingly, resulted in a kind pf
belief that the city is a philanthropic
institution, careless as to the number
of servants it employs and regardle/
of what they do. There seems to be
no head or tail to the conduct of the
city's business. Let any one who
doubts this assertion take a walk
around the city and witness for himself the work being done by the payroll army. How, many know, tho
number of men employed on the water
works? Are the city's assets whether
they consist' of' currency,' water "or
mind that there are more ways than
one of stealing. Water e.g. may be
the subject of theft. Is it true or not
that many persons use a common tap,
thus depriving the city of a legitimate
.source of revenue? When I ran for
tho office of Mayor my opponent and
I were agreed that financial audits
should be made and published at least
once every three months. He saw
with me at that time that the public'
had a right to know something from
time to time about civic expenditure.
Has his faith in' publicity been lost and
if so why 30?   ,,
Who knows whether or not there is
an overdraft, and' if one what lt does
amount to; and why it was created and
how it Is secured?  ■ How does revenue
compare with expenditure?*   The business man whoso outlay would exceed
his Income would soon come to grief.
I am not saying that tho city Is spending more than itsrevonue, but I claim
that no one seems to .know whero we
stand.     So long as an overdraft, can
bo maintained nnd checks cashed In
that way no nuepllons are asked, but,
should thoro lm a stoppage of those
things what position would we bo In?
Wo cannot, afford lo go on paying for
glnfeor bread oxtravagance.    Why Is
thoro .nn oldormmilc vacancy?     Tho
people are entitled by right and nol
by grace ,1.o have tho Council mndo up
lo.'the iiiiinhnr tliat tlu* law requires,
Is thoro a belief that a new man will
nsk questions?    If one dnro to quostion the administration of lnw or the
oxpondituro of what Ifi his own money
(ho being a ratepayer) "ho is tormed
a knocker,    Ih It knocking to call I'or
an Impartial onforcomont of tho laws,
and crlllclHO, iik you havo Mr. Editor,
have done, a departure  from  Uioho
laws? Unfortunately lho    ratepayers
ai'o entirely too Indlfforont about what
aro tliolr affairs, tho rosult bolng that
tho cily Is run aftor tho principle of
everyone being IiIh own mastor.     Let

killed outright and William Kelly-is
so dangerously injured '.as to leave
but little hopes for his recovery; Aug-
uste Verheire,- a Belgian- was also
slightly hurt.       - - '
■ From the. evidence obtained it' appears that the.icause was the falling
of coal from the' rib' which completely
buried Homenlclc and Kelly; and Verheire, -who was just out of the range
of the falling mass, escaped with but a
bruise, from a lump of coal. The case
of.Homenick is exceptionally sad because of the.large family who are thus
robbed of the bread winner and guide.

Every man connected with mining,
whether he is a laborer,, superintendent, manager, mining engineer or owner, is interested in securing ideas,that
will save him time' and make more
money for him 1-    „. ■•-"■
An organization has been built up
at a big expenditure that is scouring
the, mining world for money making,
money saving ideas. ,
The problems that one-man has
failed to solve another man somewhere
has solved," and it is the .work of this
organization to search out mining problems and their solutious, to classify,

a fail, a la seance* du Congres anti-
tuberculeux, une attachante conference. II a' parle de la necesslte d'inter-
esser le public a l'oeuvre de' l'Associa-
lion, et a dit que si les.homines attaches au* service de l'Etat.se rendaient
mieux compte des dangers dela tuber-
culose,' ils prendraient, probablqment
les moyens d'enrayer ce fleau et de
conserver a la race iin grand nombre
de vies humaines. ■ On ne pretend
plus aujourd'hui, a-t-il dit, que ce mal
est hereditaire, mais.on sait qu'il se
communique au m'oyen d'un germe qui
se repand dans l'air et se mulliplie
tres rapidem'ent. Le.genne peut pen-
etrer. dans les poumons de deux mani-
eres: par la respiration et par la deglutition. Le iait impur est done une,
cause des  plus dangereuses.
II a aussi blame severemeut l'habi-
tude d'expectorer, Qui contribue dans
une large, mesure a repandre le germe.
Et. il a affirme que Ton ..pouvait pre-
venii' la tuberculose, si l'on voulait sou-
lenient en, prendre les moyens.
Le,. nombre des deces causes ■ par
cette maladie est effrayunt. Aux Etats-Unis, la tuberculose a, tne plus de
monde en quatre ans que- n'en avait,
detruit la guerre civile. El au. .Canada, an estime que s'ur trois person-

The Toronto World reports that instead of from seven to ten thousand
men turning out at Niagara-on-the-
Lake encampment only five thousand
put in an appearance.' ' Lieut-Colonel
Galloway gave out the results of the
census this afternoon. There are'S34
men and G3S horses in the First Cavalry Brigade; 812 men and 657 horses
in the 5th Provisional Brigade; 1059
men in tlie 3rd Infantry .Brigade; 1051
in the fourth, aud 954 in the fifth.
„ The reason assigned are: That men
are unpatriotic enough to stay away
on account of the monetary consideration; that the,bad weather das prevented others; cannot get leave from
work; others had left home and others
were sick.
What sad days we are fallen upon!
If a man be afforded*) the opportunity
of wearing "the natty uniforms furnished free simply because' of spending a
few paltry dollars he ought to be ashamed of himself. * If deterred from attending because of bad weather surely
these recalcitrants ought to,make' no
objection if they-are dubbed "feather
bed warriors," . What a delightful
state of affairs if, when called upon to
fight a. real battle they went on strike
because- the elements were .not favorable, instead of proving their patriotism rain or shine, hot or cold,'and
running tho risk of catching if not the
enemy, a very severe cold or perhaps
having a leg shot off or an eye.displaced.
Those summer jaunts arc only'of a
pleasurable character, and therefore
everything should be dono to make
them agreeable. If the drill weather
bo bad practices should be held under
a waterproof canopy, and when absolutely imperative to go out roomy
umbrella hats, provided. Unless some
such methods' are adopted it. will still
be more difficult*lo procure recruits
because if the real discomfort and the
dancers of actual warfare were in operation, voluntary 'enlistment would be
very few and probably '- conscription
have to be, resorted to in order to get
enough material for food for, powder,
subjects for anatomical dissection or
meals for the birds of prey. '
Even Regina is having difficulty in
recruiting for the 95th Saskatchewan
"cvmea-.—.—„ ul *ci.y—Liiuri c-Iauo*.—u*3-aCiuc-
way of remedying this' deplorable
state of affairs. , Unless sthree good
companies are formed the prospects of
getting an armory are lessened. Look
at the ingratitude of men;'horr*'s a
chance to have a building erected that
would give employment to the craftsmen in the building trade and after its
completion be used for the laudable
purpose of protecting property that
might be considered endangered if a
strike were declared.  '
Tho Unions* are largely responsible
for the lack of enthusiasm shown as
it is a condition of. membership in
many of the organizations, that no
member of the mllllla, army or navy
reserve man shall be allowed to join;
in fact one of tho labor leaders In a
speech was unkind enough to say that
"a union man-in the militia was a He
in uniform.'
