Set at Rest-Two to
Be Sentenced
The .first stage ot the famous Coal
Creek hold-up case came to a conclu-
sion last Saturday, when tho jury
brought In a verdicts of s"Not guilty"
for both Varlow and Babcock. ,
Varlow, took the stand and had lhe
. oath administered in the regular way.
He emphatically denied most of the
statements which had been made by
the Belangers. He.admitted having a
talk with Fred. Belanger and another
party whom he knew as "Little Billy"
ln the Northern hotel with reference
to holdup about March 1909,' but.it
was just a casual conversation brought
up by Pred Belanger as to how easy
it would be to hold up the Trites-Wood
money when it was coming down to
Fernie from Coal;Creek.- .., " -, •
-   Varlow said he argued with them
' about this and pointed out that it was
not so easy, and that it was not an
old man that brought' lt' down either,
but Mr. Long, the secretary, who was
a big strbn-g,man,jand-always.carried
a revolver.    , "..-._';■ -
He  did' not  give   -this  a . second

Booth; who were waiting for. him, at
the P. Burns corner. He* emphatically denied having anything to door
any knowledge of the hold-up at the
Creek.* ,_■•'.
...Mr.W. It. Ross made an able speech
for • the defence lasting over three
hours, which was prefaced with the attack on the^attorney general for his
supposed-actions In this case.- He
also made some, very caustic remarks
with reference to the city police department. _ *
W. A. MacDonald, the 'Crown prosecutor addressed the, jury for the prosecution on Saturday morning, * and
took up, the whole of the' morning, outlining the case to the jury" He also
replied to Mr. Ross's attack on the at
-U)rney_genei*al,_.vhlch_h&;claimed__vas_
unwarranted. ' _.
After lunch his .ordshlp summed up
the case in blref and explained. the
law' to the jury, after which the 12
good meii and true retired for an hour
and forty minutes, returning with tho
verdict * as mentioned;* upon" which * W.'
R. Ross made application for .'immediate discharge of the accused, .which
was" granted.-
The verdict of the jury occasioned
somo applause In the court, which was
Immediately suppressed.
Roderick Dunlap and John Kitchener
were arraigned before his honor Judge
Wilson on Thursday;" June 2nd, charged , with robbery with violence from
the person of* James Alldred on the
night of'the 16th of April.    *      .
L. P. Eckstein acted as Crown prosecutor and W. R. Ross defended the
accused. '' .    -
. James .Alldred was duly sworn, and
gave the' story of the robbery in detail.
He stated that he had had a few
drinks with the accused about 11.30
on" the evening in question, and asked
them.to come up to the Central with'
htm and have a few more.   -
Kitchener and v Dunlap agreed to
this,' but when they got opposite the
Central^ according to Allrcd, they
threw him down .and robbed him. .
' W: R. Ross subjected him to a cross
examination to show that; it was
probable tliat he had been rolled' before he saw* the two youths, but'All-,
dred stoutly maintained that he,had
some money when he was with the
accused.
He caused considerable merriment
whilst in.the box. Aske_ by.W.'R.
Ross why he passed the Kings hotel
for the Central:
Simply liecaiise-I was making for the
latter^place. ■ ,---*'
Q: But you get good beer dont you
at the Kings?
A: I never had any beer at that
place. "   '
Witness also explained to the court
that beer was both food and drink and
wanted to know what else beer was
made for but to go and get.   drunk
on-' '"•*''.    ' ' ''     ,+
He frankly admitted that he saw
no weapon of vany kind with either of
the youths.,
J. T. Griffiths, was duly sworn and
said that,he saw*Kitchener ami D n-
lap together with Alldred in the,Waldorf about 11.30 on the night' of the
16th of April. ''' Cross examined by

on the night in question, he replied
that he had been'drinking but still had
'his senses.
Constable R. W. Bowen duly sworn,
said he saw the two accused together
'with/Alldred on'the night in question,
between 11 and 11.30 in front of the

ofdrink but that'he could still walk
all right. 7

and searched by the jailer, when the
magnificent sum of seventy-five .cents
was found on them."
Chief R.' N. Clerke duly sworn, said
that on the Monday following the 16th

to the police station and was taken
into the lockup by-witness where he
identified the accused as the persons
who had committed the robbery upon

Roderick Dunlap duly sworn,- gave
an emphatic denial to Alldred's story
thai he was drinking with him that
night; in fact he denied seeing him on
the night In question, and that he-had
gone up the street with him. Kitchener and himself were in the Waldorf
that night^ arid stayed there until'the
closing time. He also stated that
there was bad blood between Alldred
and himself consequent over a thrashing he had given Alldred about three
weeks before the night in question,
on whicli the robbery is supposed to
have" taken place.
,  Alldred at. that time said he would
having seen the man Alldred before.
W. R. Ross said that., from the evidence of Alldred it was a question to
him whether he had any money on
him that night and that together with
the evidence of the two boys was the
defence. .       ■■
His honor reserved his.decision until next Wednesday, when it is expect;
ed that the Belanger brothers will be
up in the court to receive their sentence. '
The, Grand Jury will resume their
postponed deliberations 'on June 7th,

NEW COAL FIELD
DISCOVERED
Seam of Eight  Feet Proves Extension of Nanaimo  Measures-
Thirty Years'  Labor, ■
(Colonist)
After practically thirty years of intermittent scientific prospecting, and
' perhaps a larger number of misadventures and disappointments than
usually fall to the lot of 'even that
frequent victim of malicious fate, the
' coal prospector, coal thai is of practically the same character as that of
tho Nanaimo field has at last been
struck in quantities on Tumbo island,
and there is now every reason to believe tliat those who liave persistently adhered to their confidence in the
veteran Dr. Dawson's geological studies and his conclusions that the'Island
coal measures underlie also the island
lands in the Gulf will be richly and
deservedly rewarded,
The seam struck is of eight foot
thickness at 871 feet deep and further
* explorations will bo forthwith carried
on with an augmentation of the machinery, until the full extent of the measures has been established.
The fortunate present holder of the
properly is Mr. Arthur B. Hepburn,
now of Vancouver, one* of tho directors of the Dominion Stock & Bond
Corporation, who took an option on
the island properties about one year
and a half ago from a trio of Victorians,'' wlio' have held them during almost thirty years: Messrs. _. W. Foster, T. B. Hall and J. A. Sayward.
Not only is Mr. Hepburn's faith in*
the ultimate outcome of the diamond
drilling wliich has been steadily carried on during the past, 18 months now
' happily justified, but he at least sees
.   measurably near the day when he will
' recoup himself for the ?50,000 or more
*, than he has expended in the* prospecting operations, but also an ample,pro-
,*  fit which he well deserves.     His en
gineer, Mr. William Blakemore, M. E.,
upon whose ad vice he has persisted in
his expenditures, has every reason to
share with Mr. Hepburn's pride ih the
justification of their confidence in Dr.
Dawson's accuracy, the verification after many years of that expert's early
geological maps of the Georgian archipelago, and demonstration of their,correctness of tho Tumbo island district
as in the direct natural courso of the
Nanaimo Coal measures.
, Retains Property
Ti is Mr. Hepburn's Intention to refuse all of the several offers tbat have
already boon made for the Tumbo
island properties and the future disposition of the four claims which Mr.
Hepburn holds on Tumbo, with'six
on ,lhe adjacent island of Saturna will
await the outcome of complete Investigation of the extent and quality of
the discovered measures. Ultimately
the properties may bo sold, dr Mr
Hepburn may decide to develop the
properties himself, as he has abundant
capital for the purpose, expensive as
is the making'of a modern coal'mine.
Tho later developments of=the boring
which have been quietly carried on for
the- past few months has been" very
carefully observed by various wideawake investors and coal experts/ including Mr. Cloghorn, who represents
the Northern Pacific' ancl the Great
Northern railway in a still hunt for
Island coal properties; and a number
of these alert observers have already
staked the whole of Galiano island,
beneath which it is virtually certain
the coal measures extend. Other adjacent properties' and island are being
taken up as fast as vested interests
can be brought into line.'
ALBERTA  LEGISLATURE
Edmonton, May 20.
=\ ee*Q-iv»l-»lir__-n!ftftt-
ing today Premier Rutherford made a
0
motion, accompanied by a few prefatory remarks of. no great force, and
"Cushing seconded the same:
' That this assembly go on1 record as
loyal citizens,that a message of condolence be forwarded to the Royal family because of tlie loss sustained by
the death of King Edward. R. G. Dennett of Cnlgary delivered himself of a
most eloquent address wherein he dilated at length upon tlie many privileges enjoyed by those who lived under the Union .lack during lho reign
of Edward VII aiid Victoria, expressing
his pride nt the opportunity vouchsafed him to be associated with tho resolutions, etc, lu short it was a case
as our friends Hamlet says "Words,
words, words,"
Tho clerk having rend the papor tho
Rpeilker was nbout. to put tho resolution beforo tho house when C. M. O'llrlon, the Socialist mombor, nrose lo
his foot and'in strict conformity with
tho rules of debate, said: "Mr. Speak-
or, Yes", It is sad iu truth, nny more,
It is heart rending, I dou't menn lho
deatli of lho King, ns that was quito
natural, but nil this display of hypocrisy and hollow display of pretended
sympathy  (horo    the Speaker     and
many of tho members woro observed
to be shifting somewhat uneasily in
thoir clialrri.J     O'llrlon, noticing tliut
tho rotnnrl'H ho wiih making woro tiff-
er-tlng tho comfort of tho gnthorlng,
continuing, said  "Now don't got, un-

lilm, or ut lonst I may ovon sny admiration'for tlio excellent example bo
hoI uh of living well, doing little even
iih n King and by no nieans overworking liiiiiHolf at hin Job,"     Tliere wor.)
now decided rimibllugH imd the n.-st-
IcHsnesH made Hm-lf decidedly manifest,
but when lm dulil lm wlHlieil io mako

pllii,ires   with   llio   million!   i.i   p.nii-i-

thrown to ilie winds, and ii ■(.•••incd iih
Certain rules are laid down for the
government of all bodies and O'Brien
was perfectly within his rights when
he attempted to mo\:o_an__ameiidme_ t,_
it is' true that according to the best
authorities     the inconsistency or Incompatibility of a proposed    amendment may be deemed fit reason for its
rejection, but not for its suppression;
because in tho latter case representative government becomes a farce, and
we might just as well revert to an old
oligarchical despotism.     In the matter under consideration complete gag'
law was enforced and the speaker instead of acting with that Impartiality
which his offico calls (or, allowing thc
member from the Rocky Mountain constituency to put forth his amendment,
when it could have been soon whether
or not it was permissible, he put the
.question whilst O'Brien still had tho
floor,  thereby  showing  n  bias from
which he should bo free, and more
clearly domonslrating that whon    it
suits the purpose of those sticklers for
parliamentarism to ignore tliolr authorities thoy do not hesitate to do so.
When   tbo   members "stood   up   to
voto O'Brien sat, down, and upon arising lo speak ho wns mot with a' storm
of hoots, yells and thon lho cry of
"Out of order."     "No quostion boforo
tho house," was shouted from nil sides.
Aftor completely I rumpling upon tho
established usages of constituted bodies "llko hungry tigers clutching tliolr

of a crowd of those, who, while charging Socialists, with a total disregard
for the common amenities, are the
moat ready to make infractions if
their hastily formed conclusions- lead
them to imagine that anything smacking of "disloyalty" is to be performed.
Chauvinism is a good term to apply to
these ultra-patriotic members of the
Alberta, legislature. '  '
* That Premier Rutherford was incompetent practically everybody * conceded, but it was not expected that the
Lieutenant Governor would include
the whole assembly in the same category;' as by his act in calling upon an
outsider to form a cabinet he most
assuredly does. No doubt some of
tliese gentlemen with their tissue thick
sensibilities may take umbrage at the
slight placed upon their capabilities as
statesmen! (Save the mark.-) Very
likely there will be some bye-eleclions
in the near future.
- Edmonton-May-30
The incident in the Assembly here
has certainly furnished splendid material upon "which the headline man
could exercise his Ingenuity, and he
has by no means let his light hide
under a bushel in this respect; nay
more, one may say he has cavorted
around proud of the juicy morsel for
attracting the attention of the reading
public. '   l
According to one of the reports the
leader of the opposition from Calgary
objected to the statement that the
"King was a man-who worked little,
an-Pate well," that is indeed strange
unless he felt that the.truth was out of
its element in the Alberta Legislature.
No one can, from the viewpoint of accomplishment, aver that the late King
did much work, in fact tho work of
reigning monarchs is largely ornamental, and. there is always a loud
blare of trumpets and much flowing of
ink lo persuade the reading public of
the arduous tasks performed.
That everyone unless a chronic dyspeptic, is fond of good living, when it
can be-indulged in is an undeniable
truth. • Then why make any objection to this part of'the statement?
Bad form! Hump! This may be the
case,according to the standards of
those'who have been educated along
the lines of humbug and chicanery, yet
riien of the type* of O'Brien have the
characteristic bluntness of .the class
from, whicli he springs of telling tbe
truth and this is theVmore noticeable
because of its positive directness.
Another shining .light of journalism
prates sententiously about " a street
crowd not bound by the rules of propriety might have handled him roughly?' Thlsls one ofTKe organs"5T"tlIe

Remember my trip down to Elko?
Well say, I'm inclined to believe that
I do,
A sweet recollection or two.
It was a peach ot a day for an   outing.
So for once to lose sight of the snow,
I hit* the first'train bound for Elko, '
The land jyhere the pineapples grow.
The city with flags and with* bunting
Was bedecked in most gorgeous array,
And the crowds made you sit up and
wonder
Where tlie deuce they all came from
that day.
,» * .
I had heard much of the fame of this
.Eden, "-*-
Where nature holds wonders in store,
Where the sweet, spicy breezes waft
softly,,
And tumultuous the wild waterj roar.
But now I am free to admit it,
At my assertion.you may sneer or may
• .chaff, ,
The .sights to be seen down at Elko
Have Niagara skinned full a block and
a half.
There's garden 'plantations anil,, orchards,
Abundantly blessed by the Giver,
And the noise and ' the hum of, the
street cars
Is dissolved in the roar of the river.
And the Elk rushes down through the
canyon, (

,. home, '.  ,

he spoke after he had'been "squplch-
ed" by mere force of numbers, namely,
that he wished to couple the names of
the bereaved ones at Whitehaven in
Cumberland with the message lo the
members of tho Royal family, brand

So littlo do these yelling tuft-hunters appreciate tho value of humanity,
and so obsessed are they by,their subserviency lo the conventional that

quantity entirely dependent upon tho

BE FROM ASIA
Many R^-asoris Advanced  For This
Belief-^Establishing Theory ,
On Basis of Fact    ■
That.there are sound reasons for
the belief that the natives of Northwestern America and those of Northeastern Asia are related and that the
■ results .of scientific studies which xare
being conducted on both sides of the
Beb*rlng' sea by representatives of American ana British scientific   institutions will go far to establish the theory
on a basis of fact, was tho statement
"of Mri J. A. Telt, one of the'foremost
authorities on Indians in the^ Interior
of this provlnco and coworker with
Dr. Franz Boas of Columbia university
who was ln Victoria on his way to the
Qulnault reservation on* the coast of
the State of Washington.-
Thore he will carry out a commiss-
' fon re -quiring him to gather hurriedly
for a work whlc hheolsnv. lUYMzaw
.*■ for a work which he is now preparing
*. for an institution, Information relative
"to the ancient tribal-boundaries, and
the areas covered by tho various dialects, of the Indians on that re'servat-
* ■ ion. '        .  •   ' ,     ."''■..
Indian Language in Asia
According to Mr. Telt a group of
tribes has been discovered on the
coast of Asia .who are linguistically
American, despite the fact that "they
are surrounded by other tribes distinctly Asiatic in their language. This
is one of the pegs,upon which the
theory of relationship is hung.
.    ,      Folk Lore ,
Recently Houghton, Mifflin; 'of.Boston, published for the American   Folk
. Lore society a volume by Teit oit the
traditions   of .the Thompson river In-
-   ,dians. '  Since writing tbtit he has.gathered - 300 ' other  traditions  handed
down from generation to generation,
some of which are identical with traditions of-other tribes and with traditions- of -some' of the Asiatic tribes, a
. fact which-has never yet been, satisfactorily explained. He is also at work
- "on texts of .the language of the Thomp-
'   son river Indians, and the Dominion
 -gnyornmn-nt-. will"  soon have, him at
work on a detailed map showing the
completed before long and will constitute" the last word in the, intimate
study of the Indians of the Pacific
Coast, their history, customs,' craft and
languages. '
The work is being hurried as much
as is consistent with accuracy,' owing
to the fact that within a few years
much of the Information needed will
bo past getting. The Indians are rapidly changing, traditions are no longer preserved, and tribal customs have
fallen before the advance of the white
man.. .Mr. Telt declares that all the
coast tribes have decreased since the
whites first camo among them about
1858, -
A few of the bands are holding their
own, a few are oven increasing, but
the vast majority of them are fast
falling off.
The period of adjustment is-proving
ment, and 25 separate verdicts" have
"been rendered. * The jury says, that
the mining laws of the state were broken* with the knowledge amd consent
of,the mine inspectors.
The verdicts were in three sets, one
set fixing the.cause of the death of
the twelve men in the, rescue party,
who perished on the cage in the'main
shaft, another set for.the.108 men
who were suffocated in the second
vein, and the third for the 51 men who
were trapped in the third vein, who
died of exposure and suffering from
suffocation.
The. verdict of the jury is a vindication of John Cowley, the engineer who
was in charge of tlie(cage on which
the 12 re'sciiers lost their lives.

LONDON, May 31—Quite unexpectedly Theodore Roosevelt today delivered what is considered by Englishmen
a severe arraignment of the attitude
of the nation towards Egypt'.,, Something picturesque was looked for from
the ex-president, but in view of his
utterances in Egypt in which he gavo
praise ln full measure to the .British
government for the development that
followed British rule it was not anticipated that he* would revert again
to the'subject, especially for the purpose of taking England to task on the
question.     ■>
aiity is the most broken reed on which
rightenousness can lean."
Duty to Stay
With reference to the Soudan Mr.
Roosevelt said he felt as be did about
the Panama canal, although it may not
pay, it was Britain's duty to stay there.
In his opinion the Soudan would pay
anyway.
It was not worth while to belong to
a big -nation tinless that nation was
ready to shoulder a big task.
Unprejudiced Outsider
' He prefaced his remarks on Egypt
with the statement that he spoke as
an unprejudiced outsider, as an American and a real democrat, whose first
duty was to war against violence, injustice and wrong doing wherever it
may be found. ' .
He proferred his advice only on the
principles on which he had acted as
president when dealing with the Phil-
lipines, and he declared thai the present situation in Egypt.was a grave
menace to the British empire and to
civilization.       • '

PRINCETON, 111., May 30—The coroner's ury which began last November to investigate the cause of the
Cherry mine "disaster,, which resulted
In tho death of-265 miners in the St,
Paul coal mine, has reached an agree-
England Has,Erred
But with a frankness that caused a
stir among those who had gathered in
the   ancient Guildhall to witness the
ceremony of conferring the freedom of
the city of London upon him,    Mr.
Roosevelt declared that while England
had given Egypt tBe best government
that country had had in two thousand
years, yet recent events following the
assassination of Premier Boutron Pasha had shown that in certain vital
points the British government had erred,   and  England  must  repair  that
error if she wished to do her whole
duty. ,    '■ i
He. called attention to the fact that
the prime motive for England, taking
hold of Egypt was in order to restore
order.
"Either you have or have.not the
right'to remain in Egypt and estab-
lishand keep order," he said.    "If you

man ."who

desire to remain and keep order then
by ..all means get out.     But if,. as I
hope your-duty .to mankind and your
fealty to your own great traditions bid
"you to stay, then maice the fact and
the name agree'aiid show that you are
ready to meotin very deed the responsibility which is yours.    When  a peoplo' treat assassination as the corner
stone of self government, It forfeits
all right to be considered worthy   of
self government.     Some nation must
govern Egypt and I hope and b'eliovo
that tho English nation will bollovo
and decide that tho duty to do so Is
theirs." ■

To the officers and 'Members of the
United Mine Workers of America:
Fellow Workers:' ,   ■
Wago contracts have' been negotiated and agreed upon ln Central and
Western Pennsylvania, Ohio, Michigan
Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky and the
Kanawha,district of West Virginia, on
a basis in accordance with the action
of "the Special" National convention in
Cincinnati, Ohio.
The miners of Illinois are still idle,
their joint conventions having failed
to-reach an agreement, and- 70,0.00
men aro on strike. The Southwest
which includes Kansas, Missouri, Arkansas, Oklahoma and Texas, has failed
up to'this time,to reach an agreement
and there are 35,000 men idle in those
Districts. , •
In addition to the districts mentioned, there' are 1500 men who are still
idle on strike at Springhiil, N. S.;
15,000 men are idle in the Irwin district of Pennsylvania, and there are
4000 men on strike in Central Pennsylvania as well as 2000 men oh strike
iu Colorado and about 3000 on strike
in Ohio and a number ,of local strikes
in Kentucky and in other districts.''
The uncertainty in connection with
negotiating wage agreements for the
members of our union who are* now-
idle makes it imperative tbat some
measure be taken to protect their interests. The International executive
board has reviewed the "situation very
carefully and decided,to.levy an as-

THE DISTRICT LEDGER. FERNIE,   B; C. JUNE 4, 1910
.LABOR  AND  ANTIMILITARISM
The growing sentiment of antl-milltarism is now noticeable in almost'every country in Europe. The trials
and troubles of the British recruiiinp; scrgean**. havo been
described at length by these "harpies' of lho at my who
with multi-colored ribbons, flying from their head gear,
and n braggadacio swagger lured unsophisticated yokels
to accept the "Queen's shilling."
That it Is by appeals to their vanity and not to any intelligent appreciation of the* merits of the case is amplj
demonstrated by the study of the birthplaces of those who
make up the personnel of many Scottish regiments when
the preponderance of those entitled to wear the kilts will
be found to be natives of countries outside of Scotland.
Today the great plaint of those interested in the upkeep
of Scottish traditions is"that although the regiments who
don the picturesque garb of various clans are quite numerous, there are noi more than two who have not a large
admixture of othors than sons of Caledonia. All the
dialects found between Giants Causeway and the Cove
of Cork can be found-in one regiment, tyid in the 42nd
better known as, the Clack Watch, for a comparison regarding diversity of lingual expression one may consistently make use of the stereotyped simile "a regular tower of Babel."
All of these facts are in themselves straws showing
the decadence of "local" patriotism, and indicative of the
waning devotion of those martial pursuits that in the
past have formed so thrilling a theme of song and story,
That it is the costume rather than the much vaunted
love of country that attracts was unanimously the verdict
of the recruiting sergeants in England, tacitly given of
course, when they declaimed so loudly against khaki replacing the brilliant red ,coat because of its deterrent effect upon prospective animated packages of food for
powder. # ...
The practical suppression by the new.si)anens_ot_all.
news* regarding the opposition in different countries to
consequence Canadians have been called "ingrates" to the
Mother Land. One crowd wishes to make a subscription
and buy a Dreadnaught, another, looking to the material
interests of the Dominion, consider that home industry
should be patronized. These- two factions, however,
find themselves confronted by un opposition both active
and passive that declines to be Inveigled into countenancing either scheme. *     .
Why "should"this country burden herself with the
expenses incident to floating junk piles in the shape of
batleships, cruisers, torpedo destroyers? Junkplle may
be considered a wrong term to use to these Leviathans
of the sea, but the inquisitive „who delight in looking into
the cost, life and final resting places of these monuments
to' m^n's stupidity, have only to investigate statistics
"and ascertain for themselves that the bulk of them are
declared obsolete and destroyed from time to time without performing any function whatsoever except furnishing a temporary abode for several thousand trained fighting men.
Canada requires a navy because of her unprotected
coast line, says thc protagonist of war.     Let us look at
the matter void of sentiment or prejudice.     If Canada's
ti
possible enemy is the United States of what avail would
a navy be against a country that can readily make a land
invasion?
If the opponent came from overseas It.would demand
a navy equally as great as Britainsto attempt to protect
the long coast line.      * " °
>. Canada can make progress by attending to her development rather than by expending the. energy and life
blood cf her youth merely'to keep alive the spirit of barbarism and butchery.
Mexico with twice the population of Caanda, about
one fifth tho area but with an extensive seaboard to^oth
the Atlantic'and Pacific oceans, extending from 15 deg.
to 32 deg. 30 m. N. lat and 87 deg. to 117 deg. W. long,
being satisfied with seven small vessels, the largest a
little larger, than the "Quadra," why should the country
that occupies territory to the north of Uncle Sam's domains undertake to saddle herself with a bill of unnecessary expense?
» Again the*people of this broad land have only to seo
thc conditions in Europe to reach a' conclusion that the
example is one to be avoided rather than imitated. If
theso peoples whose histories are principally made ,up
of ,the recitals of wars, are fast approaching a mental
stage that causes them to" deprecate the arts of war with'
all its horrors,, is it not tjie height of folly for a y<
nation not to beneft by such an experience?
THE BIG BARNES SHOWS
, Monday, June 6th, Al. G. Barnes big
trained wild animal circus will'open a
week's engagement in this city and
from,, all  indications 'they, will draw
big crowds to ail their performances.
If is a long time since Fernie has had
a chance tp see a large.tented show,
and all of the exchanges from the.U.
S,  say that Barnes has the-largest
trained wild animal show in America.
Special mention must be made of the
sea lions.     There have been trained
seals; and trained sea lions, but none
quite equalling in: point of sagacious
performances   those  that* are   to  be
seen. with  Al  G.  Barnes ' Big  3-Ring
Wild Ainmal Circus.    It is simply another demonstration of the wizard's
superiority over rival    trainers that,
have followed in.his wake. The united
and individual work of these wonderful
creatures, so singularly ungainly   in
slippery shape by nature, so pitiful ou
land, and with but stunted flippers to
supply the place of hands, is the very
acme of both amazing and amusing action.    These amphibious creatures are
equilibrists, jugglers, musicians,   both
catchers, clowns and bareback riders,
catchers, clows and bareback   rlder_
giving undoubtedly   the most   unique
and  remarkable- trained  animal acts
ever produced. •
One of this collection, called Dick, Is
positively the only seat lion that has
ever been educated to mount and ride
on the back of a horse, maintaining a
perfect position and juggling balls, batons and lighted torches, while the
horse dashes at full speed around the
ring. To be seen only with the Al
G.. Barnes', Big 3-Ring Wild Animal

The latest move on the part of the authorities at St.
Petersburg is an attempt to"place the Finnish pilots under the control of the Ministry, of Marine; this is deemed
an injustice and an attack at the institution of those who
have   guided  navigation   through  Finnish   waters.      If
accomplished there is every   reason lo believe that the
parties interested will declare a general strike.     The
Finns are supposed to be strong on passive resistance,
but this will avail them little If tho henchmen of the
Czar determine to enforce submission, as they will not
hesitate to create excuses for bringing the military Into
uso through the aid of tho agents provneateurs, I. e„ tho
trouble creators.    The function of these creatures Is to
commit some overt act In such a manner that blamo may,
bo fastened upon those whom it Is intended to destroy.
Such tactics are not unknown In Canada, having boon
practiced by corporations whoso employees had decided
that tho conditions under which they wore working wore

A hat and drawn for. It is necessary,
to explain in detail as there was a
deuce of a rumpus about it afterward.
. These three were representing Leth-
-Dridg, Bellevue and Lille, and* the draw
<vas ,woii*',by Bellevue^ whose representative Bob Liy.ett, refereed. The game
which was very evenly contested, and
had to be played thirty minutes each
way, resulted in ,a draw of one -goal
each. During the game some of the
Lethbridge, supporters acted very _n-
sportsmanlike, and abused the: referee
for giving too many fouls against them
—even the women took-a hand and
such phrases as ','brute', "beast," etc.;
being heard on ajl sides. ' It was decided to play an extra ten minutes
each way to see which .would survive.
In this extra time" Bellevue outplayed
their opponents, making them appear
like a lot of schoolboys.
Only one goal resulted however as
the greater part of the time was spent
In hunting new footballs. The game
therefore resulted in a win for Bellevue by 2 to 1. We are sorry to say
that the arrangements made for the
footballers were ■ rotten. There was !
no penalty area marked out, no goal
lines and no side lines. ,  -,
In addition to this people were allowed to go on tlie field during the
game with no official of the sports to
keop order. The Lethbridge "crowd
made an-awful fuss after, the match,
and collected around the referee with
the intention, some thought, of mobbing him, but they only yelled and hooted,, and refrained from doing any
damage, being held back no doubt by
the thought that the referee' had quite
a lot of friends present.
' Mr. James Ashcroft in conversation
with your correspondent, who'had suggested that we play on neutral grounds
for $100, jumped at the idea and excitedly wanted to-- know If it could
not be made $500. Anyway, we all
adjourned for some refreshments, and
there was handshaking all around and
then there was an end to' the squabbling.
We have promised them a match In
the near future, perhaps on the 1st of
July. ' '
The second game was between Lille
and Cowley, which had to be abandoned on account of tlie ball bursting and
there.being no other available., Lille
had one' goal to nothing when the accident occurred.
Bellevue having --• beaten, the other
teams at various times and considering the good game they'played, Mr.
McMillan thought he was justified in
handing the cup over to Mr. James
Lindsay secretary' to be hold by them

COAL CREEK
A splendid and enthusiastic gathering of fellows hailing from the district
' of the recent awful.mine disaster   in
England marked Sunday ovunluj,' last
in thc club hall.    There was not one
present but who had lost near idative,
bosom friend or personal acquaintance
In the explosion.   , The object of the
-=-. meeting was to formulate means ' to
_et busy and raise a fund to help the
widows and fatherless in the sad bereavement, and dire destitution which
. has so unexpectedly befallen them, *-
Under the chairmanship , of -   Mr.
Superintendent Shanks, good business
was done in quick time.     A fund to
-be known as, the Wellington mine dis-.
aster fund will remain open until August 31 next. -, ,,     '
The gratitude of all, and especially
' of Cumbrians having home ties with
the scene of the disaster,, goes out to
those who so generously responded to
the efforts of the noblo and beneficent
promoters of the recent concert, also
•, to the Mayor of Fernie, for the amount
-collected   at   the memorial service of
ouir late king.     Still there was evid-
. eiice at this meeting that there are
many right through the Pass who'are
>    strongly in favor of something more
,- being done to help -alleviate the undoubted sufferings of these poor people. ,    This fund should be their op-
.-*   portunity and amounts, iio matter how
small," sent or given to Jno. Combe,
secretary and treasurer of the fund,
Coal Creek, B. C, will be gratefully
' received and acknowledged by him.
1   It. may be stated that no.expenses
will be charged against' contributions
.    to' the fund.-    This-means that overy
cent" glve~_j_ll_be_f prwarded—to~ths
distressed quarter.                    ■ .     ■   ,
,   The chairman of the fund is Mr. J.
Shanks, superintendent    of the Coal
, Creek mines, and the committee consists of Messrs. Isaac Halle, Wm. W1I-.
son, Walter Joyce,   Wm.   Bell, Wm.
Tinkler, George Vickers, Jack Cartnell
Harry McGuire,*  Jack' Chester,    Joe
Buchanan, Robert Beck, J. Southward,
1 Tom Beattie and Ed. Harrison,    who
have power to add to their number.
Any. of these will also receive donations.                        *
Men in the employ of the Coal Co.1
can glvo their check numbor and stato
' tho amount they wish to contribute to
lho socrotary of the committee or any
of tlio members.'

Martin Dooley arrived back from
the coast on Sunday.
A sad accident happened to T. Clare,
the Creek.goal keeper on Sunday morning. He was* working as a rope
rider in No. 3 mine and was riding on
the front of the car when going up an
incline, as is usual, when in some mysterious way he got caught by a low
boom and was dragged into the empty cars, sustaining severe injury to
his spine.. At first it was thought
that the back 'had been broken, but
on inquiry later in the week it was
found * that his back was not broken,
but the unfortunate _ young man was
in a critical condition. It is hoped
that he will have a speedy recovery
as he -was very popular among the
boys.        ' '. '   . -     •
Thomas Baird, who for the past
three and a half years.has been head
grocery clerk up here for the Trites-
Wood Company, severed his connection with that firm last month and is
leaving shortly for San Francisco. He
is to be succeeded here by D. A. Dick
who was formerly with the Hosmer
Mercantile Company. ...
Sid Horton, the popular Creek butcher, has gone on a month's visit to
see his folks in Winnipeg. He has
not seen his parents since°he left England a number of years ago. James
Maddison of the P. Burns Company
in Fernie is now* acting In the meantime.
An Italian named Pietro Alvesto, employed as a rope rider in No, 9 mine,
mine. . President Powell and Secretary Carter explained at length the position taken by the* company. ' The
matter was referred back to" the district Officers and scale committee, instructing them to again negotiate with
the Company, the men not feeling disposed to accept what they consider to
be a reduction on the present1 mining
rates. Until such time as an agreement is arrived at the men ln the
longwall will continue on company
work. The ■ general feeling, is ' that
rather, than accept a contract detrimental to their interests It would be
better to revert to the old system of
pillar and stall.
The Are You Crazy Company paid
us a visit this week* and drew an exceptionally large house, particularly
so considering the time of the month.
It Is a screaming farce comedy, and
one of the best tonics for a fit of the
blues that can be indulged in. The
general opinion as to its merit is contained in the one word "Champion."
The legal lights foregathered here
this week to deal with the compensation case of J. Buscovltch who was killed away,back in February last in No.
4 mine. This is a contested, compensation case in which the company.are
endeavoring through their counsel W.
R. Ross K.C, tb have get aside on the
plea that dependents of the deceased
are residents in a foreign country outside of the British Empire.
L., P. Eckstein is engaged by Dist.
18 U. M. W. A. to look after their interests and those of our late brother.
The evidence was 'Completed. The
witnesses were'Joseph Buscovitch brother of the deceased, Martin 'Kahn,
who was tlmberman at the time of
the,accident,-Pete.Wayncuk, a driver,
Louis and Joe Povick, brothers-in-law,
all testified regarding the "sad accident. Robert Spruston, fireboss, - who
was on shift the day of the occurrence
was'a witness, on behalf of the Company.* ~ *•*   7
-Dick Armstrong, wno was seriously
wounded as a result of a fracas in, the
Prairie Village, is now on the hlgh_
got.sevefely-crushed in his loft side,
by being caught with the cars after
jumping off the trip on Tuesday.' No
bones.were"broken; he was removed
i.    ■ ■
to the hospital. ■
A start was made this week on the
new wash house. This will' be a
great boon as the one in use is very
inadequate.   .
Paddy King blew in from Michel on
Tuesday.      ■■•  ■   *■   "■
MICHEL
A special meeting of tho Michel local
was'held on Sunday last to hear the
roport of tho scale commltteo regarding the longwall question in No.' three
It Is too bad that the demand for
sausage is on the decline, but with all
the talk about the cost of high living
nobody has suggested the advisability
of trying dog steaks, and if the market demands cannot be met,, Michel
certainly will gladly dispose of, the
greatest aggregation of useless mongrels .that ever gnawed* a bone or bit
a bum. Carload lots supplied on short
notice.
The biggest celebration in the Pass
will take place on Dominion Day, July
lst, at Ferule B. C„ when sports of all
kinds will be indulged in. Football
matches, baseball games, tug-of-war,
foot races, long and short distances,
hoso reel races etc. Watch for further particulars.
The Anglers Association of Michel
are now making arrangements for an
excursion that will be open to all to
Burton City, to have a solid week's enjoyment, when , the disciples of tho
hook and line'will be afforded every
opportunity for indulging in this pleasurable sport and those who are not
anglers will be able to obtain other recreative enjoyment,
Negotiations are under way with
the C. P. R. for a special rate including
fare meals and berth on the boat. Already quite a number have signified
their intention to avail themselves of
this trip, and the committee in charge
are' nor, allowing the grass to grow
under their feet, in boosting the affair. Just as soon as the price is
fixed upon or any other information
pertinent is obtainable we shall make
it. known through the columns of this
paper.. -'

The Canmore boys celebrated Empire clay in Banff. A football match
was played in the evening between the
Scotch and English. The best of the
footballers from Canmore. Banff and
Bankhead "were selected for the occasion. It was ahard contested samo,
which finally resulted in a win for
.«j-the-Eng!ish-team-by-a-score_of-three"
to two.' -   ■
The game started at. 7.15, the Scotch
team winning the toss. Tho Englishmen kicked off, aiid after 20 minutes
of hard and fast play scored the first
goal by a very clever,header' from
centre forward." Tills put more energy into tlie Scotch laddies and thoy
soon evened up the score. The next
goal was scored by the English and
came from a long, well directed shot
which camo In contact with tho goal
keeper between the posts. He tried
hard to hold it but was unable to do
so and It rolled quietly past him Into
the goal.
Tho Scotchmen broke away again
with a rush, doing some pretty work,
and carrying tho ball to their opponents' quarters ancl finally scoring another goal which evened up the score
at two all. '
From another break away tho Englishmen scored tho winning gonl. Tho
Scotch tried hard to oven up.but woro
unable to, and tlmo was cnllod which

Quite a little excitement In New Michel on Tuesday when fire broke out
ln George Fisher's barn whicli was entirely destroyed with contents, consisting of oats, hay and feed. Fortunately
it happened in the daytime and his
live stock and wagons were all in use
outside. If Is not known how it originated and was well under way before
It was discovered. The house adjoining was only saved, after great effort.
The football match last Saturday between Moyie and Michell resulted in
another scalp being added to Michel's
belt, Moyie scoring one goal to Michel
two. The return .match will be played this Saturday when it is expected a
good crowd will go to the city by the
lake, so-that Michel will be afforded
an opportunity of taking a lesson' in
western hospitality for which Moyie is
so famous.
There is considerable coming and
going just now particularly among the
foreign element.

■ One of the social forces at work today in the,anthracite region of Northeastern Pennsylvania is thc mine
school.1 The economic and sociological conditions in
are peculiar. Within an area
about five hundred square miles is
contained the entire anthracite supply
of the United States. Anthracite is
responsible for the large population
in this region. Directly or Indirectly
practically the whole population . de-
ponds upon the mining industry.
The need for labor has brought to
this region large numbers of foreign
immigrants,     They come from every
part of Europe, and there are some
of the mines in which from fifteen to
twenty languages are spoken by the
workers.     Naturally such a situation
■creates trouble.     To assimilate these
foreigners Is a problem, lt is generally
recognized - of  course,   that  the  real
solution! and it must be gradual, is
"    education.     The public schoools, libraries,  numberless , benevolent,     and
'   patriotic organizations, are all assisting in the work.
The mining company, the operator,
is leading in it. The operator is more
directly interested  in  the quality of
mine labor than anyone else. He sees
good coal going to-waste because the
men who are mining it are not,well
trained.     Sometimes he sees a life
lost, because the worker, out of ignorance or carelessness bred of. ignorance
has disregarded  the rules that were
designed for his protection.   He'sees
- what the real remedy must be and
he ha_ set about "to provide it by the
'- establishment of schools.        J        '•

which the members' are moro or less   C. A. work
acquainted.    Gradually   tho   drawing
is mado .more complex,   until at the
end   of the term each student, is capable of making an intelligent drawing
of an elaborate piece of machinery.
The'■■senior class course also contains
problems useful to moulders, machinists and miners.     Another branch of J
instruction is foundry practice.        ■  |
Frequent visits to the school  are I
ade by the superintendent of shops
machinery and by the various
heads    of the    mining deparement.
They   scrutinize the work of the students, and thus it is made obvious
to every attendant that the management is alive |o .the progress that he
is making.
A    change    in the  routine ' work
comes in tbe form bf illustrated talks.

Language Problem
In the southern district the Philadelphia and Reading runs special cars
in order to glvo the employees an opportunity to attend the meetings of
tho Institutes..;
Among the experts who have made
addresses for the benefit of the mine
workers are Dr. J. A. Holmes of-the
Geological survey, Col. B. W. Dunn,
cliief of the department for the safe
transportation of'explosives, and also
Prof. Monroe,. consulting chemist of
the Gedlogical Survey and Navy department.  .
One of the greatest tasks faced by
the Y. M. C. A. in this work, is to
reach the non-English .speaking miner. At a meeting in, Carbondale it
was seen that 100 men present did not
Every now and then some expert is   spcak Engi*sh; at a meeting in Potts
Formerly the English speaking and
' Teutonic ' races predominated in the
anthracite region, Many of these men
had been brought up in mining communities. Men who had had yours of
experience in the mines of England,
Scotland and Wales were attracted to
this country by the higher pay and tho
botter conditions of work, A number
oil llioni aro Htlll lo bo found In tho
hard coal fields, but relatively speaking, their part in tho production of anthracite" has become less and and loss
important.
Now the mining industry has to l*e-
ly on a class of Europeans whose traditions and experience havo nothing
to do with mining.     Immigrants   of
Southern and Eastern Europo   have
filled' the region, whilo competent minors havo been discouraged from ever
coming hy tho lnw whloh demands two
years service in tlio Pennsylvania nn-
thnielto'region beforo a minors certl-

Thus Una arisen lhe necessity for
bolter training, Several of tho mining companion havo established school
Iioukoh which they conduct for the benefit of their employees. These employees, no matter In what branch of
mining work thoy may bo, arc encouraged to attend. Tho powerful Inducement Ih tho ultimate promotion sure to
follow faithful study.

at the school and lectures,on the subject with which he is most familiar.
These talks are informal and members
of the class are at liberty to question
the expert. .
The   practical value of tho school
has   been demonstrated   by its   results.   , Many, men who took advantage of the opportunity for instruction
have shown marked improvement and
have already been rewarded by promotion.     They'had the-ability and
the schools brought it out by setting
"their minds to worl*j.
... Recently the company established a
school for the employees of the collieries iij the Shenandoah division.    .The
session's.are held in ' a public   school
building  iu the  town.      This  school
ircrs-ior-its^urpose-t-he-preparatioiuof.
mine workers for the examination for
mine foremans certificates. The head
of the school is the mining engineer of
the district.
; Very few'of the attendants.have had
[ha advantage of much'' educ&tion,
ville it was calculated that 70 per cent
of the men present were df.the noii-
English speaking races. In Scranton
there,have been definite plans for the
separate instruction of the Poles. At
one meeting in the Wyoming region
the mine workers were addressed in
three foreign tongues, Polish, Italian
and Lithuanian.
Thus the system of practical education spreads in the anthracite region.
Though its effects "will be chiefly felt
in the anthracite region itself, it,has
already brought about an improved
state in other places.
Only a month' or two ago one of
the great mining companies in the bituminous district around Pittsburg established' a school modelled after* the
OneS-UliU™ai trail. <_du,r—*uiiuw_ .,	
the anthracite region,
ly to encourage its branch managers
to" go after the customers of other
banks. '   .*
With the sensible lessening of this
brand of competition is likely to be
a slight stiffening of the terms regarding rates of interest and escurity.
When the banker knows that any
one of half a dozen banks will be glad
to take a,certain loan, he cannot be as
particular as he would like to be In
regard to the collateral or security to
cover It. But when his funds are well
■employed and other banks are not
meddling with or canvassing for his
accounts he can hold out for the security and the interest which he thinks
he should get. ' **   '
Tho present cannot be described as
a period of stringency. „  The .machinery of credit' is not as yet working at
high strain in this country.     Rather
is liTa stage prior to that.     All the
wheels are turning or nearly all of
them.'   The banker has the same pleasurable feeling as the manufacturer,
all the departments of whose establishment are.working full time'on profitable contracts.    It is hardly within
anyones power to say when the strings
will tighten* to such an extent as to
produce actual scarcity.    A variety of
factors are at work;    and while we
have a good idea as to those which are
dominant at present, we know not now
which will give the color to the situation of several months hence.' Probably the most Important single factor
now at work is the movement of outside capital to the Dominion. During
1909 that proceeded .on a very large
scale, but apparently the requirements
of Canada's commerce and industry increased faster than tlie foreign moneys employed here accumulated.    Our
commerce.and industry are still rising
rapidly; and, there is thus foreshadow-,
ed a rapid increase in the commercial
demands for credits.    It is to be hoped that there will be no diminution in
the flow of capital into this country,

II y a plus de trois semalnes deja
qu'une gfeye importante a eclate dans
le Borinage.
,. Commencee au charbonnage du Levant du Flenu, a.Cuesmes, par la cessation du travail des scleurie'urs, elle
fit bientot tache dhuile et embrassa les
charbounages des Produits a Flenu, du
Rieu du Coeur, du Couchant du Flenu,
etc., a Quaregnon et des Charbonnages
Beiges, a Frameries, La Bouverie et
dans les environs, soit en,tout plus de
12,000 grevistes.   '       , .
Cette greve eut put devenlr. beau-
coup plus importante, si les mineurs
des autres communes du Borinage av-
alent deserte le travail et sulvl leurs
camarades en greve.' Mals ils rester-
ent a la besogne malgro les nornbreux
appels qu'on leur fit, donnant pour motifs qu'ils ne feralent la greve que lors-
que celle-ci serait decretee par im con-
gres national et comprendralt les mineurs des cinq bassins houilliers du
pays.   - -  . .   .' -,
Inutile de'dire lesralsons que provo-
querent cet arret du travail," , Elles
sont relatives a. la .question des sal-
alres. . La derniere adjudication des
charbons de l'Etat'amena une augmentation assez sensible dans le prix de
vente des .charbons. Les charbons
vendus plus chers, n'etait-ce pas une
augmentation dans le taux des benefices des charbonnages?
Les ouvriers demanderent avec rai-
son de pouvolr beneficier sous forme
d'augmentation do salalre d'une part,
si minimo soit-elle, de ces profits. Ils
ne demandaieiit pas d'eu avoir la tot-
alite, mais une part quelconque, afin
d'alloger dans une faible'mesure, les
'charges^! lourdes, si ecrasantes, qu'ils
ont»a supporter-pour, vivre et'elever
leur famille.
Comme tout capitaliste que se res-
pecte, les patrons oharbonniers refus-
erent touto augmentation. Mieux que
cela: ils ne voulurent' pas avoir* ,de'
rapports, ni d'entrevue avec les del-
cgues des.syndicats,' dans le but d'ex-
amlner ot si possible, d'apaiscr le con-
fllf. 7,    '

patrons est fort regrettable a tons*les
■points-deTue:—EHeTurpeut-qu'enveH*-"
inor les ehoses et aigrlr les confllts au
lieu do les eviter. Pourtant, il faudra
bien qu'un jour les patrons acceptent
do discuter non'pas avec leurs ouvriers mais avec les delegues des organisations ouvrieres. En Angleterre, en
France, en Allemagnfr partout oil 11 y
a des .charbonnages, il en'est ainsl.
Les delegues patrons et Ies delegues
ouvriers se reunissent pour examiner
les questions do travail, de salairo et
autres, et II cn resulte tres souveut
quo l'nccbrd des deux parties se pro-
duit sur uno baso determineo et que
les confllts sont ovitos. II faut qu'll
en soit ainsi on fielglque. II faut que
les patrons comprennent qu'ils dolvent

Appel aux Groupes en faveur.des grevistes' de Bracquegnies .
Depuis ..cinq semaines, la vaillante,
population miniere de Bracquegnies
est sur la breche et mene-une lutte
heroique pour% obtenir du patronat inflexible un meilleu'r salaire en rapport
avec les condition's actuelles de la vie,
ainsi que des meilleures conditions de
travail. Elle ne veut plus que; desor-
mals, on ose potrer attelnte a sadlg-
nite et a ses oeuvres.
Depiiis cinq semalnes, il y a a Brac-
quegnles.plus de 1300 enfants qui souf-
frent de la falm et a qui les parents
ne peuvent donner que des paroles de
consolation. , ■
Devant une te le situation, la Federation des mineurs du Centre a decide
de falre un vibrant et supreme appel
aupres des groupes pour qu'ils versont
chacun leur obole, pour permettre a
ces vaillants grevistes de pousser la
lutte 'jusqu'a la victoire.
Donnez; camarades, et faites en sor-
te que les gros sous de la classe ouvri-
ere fassent baisser pavilion aux billets
bleus, de Ia gent capitaliste.
Donnez! Donnez! Notre victoire c'est la votre. ,

La Reprise du Travail Votee
A une reunion des ouvriers mineurs
de Lracquegnies tenue jeudl 12 mal,
a la Maison du Peuple, les grevistes
ont vote la reprise du travail.-'
Ce qui a alnone cetto" decision, c'est
le nombre assez consequent d'ouvriers
non syndiques qui ne trouveut point cle
quoi subvenir a leur existence.
Ce sera une lecon pour ceux qui* s'el-
oignent des associations,' en, meme
temps qu'un stimulant pour nos camarades, afin d'amener tous les ouvriers
dans1 les syndicats;*     .* r
Comme les mineurs re'steront environ trois semaines sans recevoir" d'ar-

pour qu'ils -organisent*des collectes a-

A PROPOS DE MULETS
PENDRA-T-ON LES CRIMINELS7
Les compagnies de mines de la region anthracite se plaignent de la che-
rte des millets. En 1901 elles pouvai-
ent acheter uri excellent mulet pour
$1*15. Eu 1907 le'prix avait deja'monte
a §210 et maintenant on ne peut plus
les obtenir pour moins de $300. Et
cc n'est pas tout, ,cela' coute an moins
40 pour cent plus cherpour Ies nour-
rir qu'en 1901. <s*
Ces quelques .lignes extraites d'un
journal quptidien nieritent l'attention
des ouvriers'mineurs. Depuis une di-
zaine d'annees le prix de tous ce qui
est necessaire a la vie a augmente
presque dans la meme proportion que
Ie' prix des mulets.*' II est meme probable que c'est a cause de cette augmentation que" les* marchands de mulets ont aussi augment^ le prix de leurs
betes.  .* ■

Non, bien loin do la!
Les mineurs—et des mllliers d'autres ouvriers sont dans la meme situation—'ii'ont pas su s'entendre ot s'unlr
sufflsnmment pour obliger leurs patrons a leur payer uno augmentation do

Probably having heard of the way
Vancouver bakers do things the bakers of Fort William are organizing and
have applied to the international ■ for
a charter. At present the men state
that they work on an average of 12
hours a day .and get no extra pay for
overtime.
But as soon as the bakeries are unionized the men will work'eight hours
a day and get paid extra for' their overtime.

When the Trades,, and Labor Congress of Canada convention* took placo
at Victoria four years ago the provincial executive was not asked nor did
it give any grant for entertaining the
delegates. ■ But only a few days ago
the provincial executive voted a' grant
of $1000 toward the entertai>inient of
the visiting members of the Canadian
Manufacturers association during its
convention in Vancouver In September
next.' The government will also tender those Important visitors a recei)-*
tion at the parliament buildings during
their stay,in the province. „ Tho precedent will prove very handy for-future parliaments in British Columbia at
no distant date.
