GREENWOOD, April 23—The majority and minority reports of the
board of conciliation in connection
■with the B. C. Copper Company and
employees who are members of the.
"Western Federation of Miners are
as follows:
Majority Report
In the matter of the '-Industrial Disputes Investigation Act 1907" and of
a dispute between the British Columbia Copper Company, Limited, Greenwood, Britsh Columbia! employer; and
its employees, members of the Greenwood Miners union No. 22 of the Western Federation of 'Miners.
The application for a board of conciliation 'and Investigation arose out
of a demand made by Greenwood Miners union No. 22 of the Western Federation of Miners as contained in a
letter dated December S, 3909, and directed to .1. E. 'McAllister, manager
of the -British Columbia Copper Co.,
at Anaconda, ami which letter is as
'   Greenwood. B. C. Dec. 9, 1909
Mr.  J.   B.   McAllister,
Manager B. C. Copper Co.
Anacoeida, B. C.
' ■ Dear Sir:  At a special meeting of
Greenwood Miners Union, December 6
1909, tit Mother Lode mine, the following motion was carried-unanimously:
"Regularly moved and seconded that
the secretary be instructed to notify
the mamager of the 3. C. Copper Co..
that unless every man  (except officials and shift bosses) working   in the
mines   and smelters, under our juris-
* diction,  has  a  paid  up  card  in  our
union by noon the Ilth off January,
•we will go out on strike and refuse to
work with the non-union men.,
"At a special meeting of,  Gfeen-
'.-wood Miners union at Greenwood, December 7th, the above motion was en
dorsed by a unanimous vote.     •    *
Yours truly,
Geo. Heatherton.
The Question Considered
At the outset of the investigation
we were of the opinion that the whole
question to be considered was as. to
whether it was in the interests of
employers, employees and immediate
community that, the demand of the
Western Federation of Miners as contained in the above letter of Decm-
ber 8th, 1909, should be complied with
by the company or not.'
As must necessarily occur where
proceedings such as these are not restricted to that class of evidence that
should be received in a court of law,
a tremendous amount of entirely irrelevant matter was introduced, as
evidence at our sessions, but after
hearing it. all, and again reading the
stenographer's' notes iherof, we are
most firmly convinced that the above
question is the only one to be considered. The facts do not appear to be
disputed and are as follows:
Recital of Events
■In-or about the month of March,
1909, the same union of the Western
Federation of Miners asked for a
board of concilation under .this act,
their principal complaint being that
the company had discriminated
against their men, and that the company had not recognized the union
as such. The. then board of conciliation, or the majority thereof, found
adversely against the applicant union on the point of discrimination and
held that the company should recognize the,union as such."
Subsequently in or about the month
of July of the same year a strike was
declared by the union, although it appeared that at the time because of a
shortage of coke consequent upon a
strike at the adjacent coal mines,the
company's plant had been shut down.
After some negotiations between the
company and the employees and with
the assistance of Mr. John McKinnon
who  was  president  cf  the Western
Federation of Miners in Canada a settlement was arrived at between the
employers and the employees. This
settlement is contained in a letter of
the 23rd of July, 3 909, written by the
British Columbia Copper Company to
the union and answered by the men
on the 2Sth day of July, 1909, copies
of .which were signed by J. H. Senk-
ler, Chairman and J. A. Mara,     4
Department of Labor
Ottawa, Camilla.
In the matter of tho dispute between
the British Columbia Copper Company
and thc Greenwood Miners Union No.
22 of the Western Federation of Miners arid the Investigation held thereon
under the provisions of the Industrial
Disputes Investigation Act 190S."
' Being unable to agree with my colleagues on the board as to a joint report, I therefore submit herein a minority report.
It is a difficult matter indeed to convey to those who are not familiar with
local conditions' in the Boundary district a thorough idea relative to the
facts connected with the various aspects of this dispute.' Stating it briefly
it is a controversy arising from an
endeavor on the, part of the Miners
union to maintain their jurisdiction
called Electricians' Union.
The Western Federation of Miners
has been organized in the.Boundary
district for over 11 years, and held
jurisdiction over all the men working
in and around the mills, mines, and
smelters (including skilled labor.)
. But recently the Electricians union
has been making inroads upon the
membership of the Western Federation of Miners, a course which is quite
apparent had the sanction and support
of the British Columbia Copper Co., as
their bosses were the most active in
soliciting members for this new union. It was made plain by the evidence taken that .the Electricians union solicited and "admitted to member:
ship,persons who were'neillier„eligible
nor qualified to become' members. Al-

so that the employees of the British
Columbia Copper Company who are
affiliated with the Electricians union
do not belong to a local lodge, but
are members in another town in the
support of the general body. So that
actions of a reasonable nature .only
would be supported. This system gives
every man involved a voice in all matters relating to conditions in so far as
they are determined by the efforts of
organized labor. The system that Ic
being introduced by the Electricians
union gives each craft engaged in nny
industry the right to organize into separate unions. This method would
allow some eight or ten unions in tlie
mining industry. Such ,a condition
would cause continual-unrest owing
to-the fact that the members of any of
these craft, unions could go out on
strike without consulting their fellow
workmen, although the effect of the
strike would be to tie up the, entire
industry. This being the case there
can be no beneficial results follow the
establishment of unions where the
ground is already covered. To insist
in tactics of this character will have
the effect" of bringing about a condition of affairs so unsatisfactory to all
concerned, that much loss will,ensue;
not only to the working class of the
district, but * to the employers and
every person who has an interest in
the community. ■
When men who hold positions as
bosses for corporations are'permitted
to hold the most important offices in
labor, unions it is high time the membership began to look with suspicion
on unions * so constituted. It is regrettable that the parties to the dispute have been unable to come to
some understanding that would avoid
a suspension of work, and until such
time as both parties are .willing to lay
aside the mutual distrust that exists
between them,there seems to be but
a'slim chance to arrive at an adjustment containing any degree of permanency.

It Cost Millions of Money to find Out
That Union Mining Conditions
°     Are Cheapest
After years of work the organized
miners of Illinois have at last succeeded in unionizing the Leiter Coal mines
at Zeigler, 111., which have passed into
the hands of the Bell-Zoller Company.
They will hereafter be operated by union men.
The sale of the Leiter properties
has just been consummated, the new
company having made an agreement
with the officials of the United Mino
Workers of Illinois to begin construction work in the mines.
The experience of Joseph Leiter in
trying to operate coal mines in Illinois
with non-union men is said to have
cost him about two million dollars.
Nearly a hundred men have,met with
death in a series of mine disasters,
explosions and fires in the Zeigler properties. For more than a year the
mines have been, sealed up and the bodies of,the last eight men who were
killed have never been recovered.
The town of Zeigler, which was
owned by Mr. Leiter has been deserted since last May' when the inhabitants, who, all depended on the operation of, the mines, were shipped out to*
other towns.
. The Zeigler mines were opened by
the Leiters in 1903, and during'..!he
life of Levi Leiter union men were employed. , When Joseph Leiter got control lie started a fight on the union
by discharging all his union men and
importing non-union men from other
A high stockade was built around
the town and armed guards were put
at the gates. A tower was erected
on which were placed a searchlight,
and two gatling guns, and for a time
bombardment of the camp of the union pickets was a common occurence.

Tuberculine Injected Into
160 Babies'Eyes -.'
Direful ly
PHILADELPHIA, April 24.—An outrage that has no equal for savage brutality and cold bloodedness has been
disclosed at the hospital of the University of Pennsylvania and the St. Vincent's Catholic Home for Orphan Children, where 160 helpless foundlings,
most of them less than a year old,
have been cruelly used as "humau material by medical investigators.
The destitute babes have been used
, in just the same way as a vivisection-
1st uses a frog, a dog or a cat. ' It has
been shown from the Archives of Internal Medicine, published by the American Medical Association, that the
physicians of the above named institutions have actually inoculated the eyes
^*ot these orphans with tuberculine.
The result of these dastardly expert-
,   ments is the total blindness of a number of orphans and   the   threatened
blindness of a dozen or more.    It has
"been futrher proven that the experiments developed eight cases of conjunctivitis,' or eye disease, two of them* severe and purulent, six severe and re-
. -curring.    Two' children have developed corneal ulcers. N
' There can be no denial   of this for
the experimenters have issued a printed report of their work.     They catalogue the children as "human material."''
Here is what   is contained in   the
Practically all of our patients were
under eight years of age,' and all but
twenty six of them were inmates of St.
■Vincent's Home, an institution with a
■ population of about four hundred, composed of foundlings, orphans and destitute children.
• "The cases in the home were tested
t\ TirTToutirie^by~~waFds^lFFespective of
the conditions from which they were
suffering, and in the great majority
-of instances without any knowledge of
their physical condition prior to or at^
the time the tests were applied."    *
The -sexperlments were intended to
discover whether the children were
suffering from tuberculosis. In order
to leaim this they Inoculated into the
orphans, who had no means of helping
themselves, Koch's tuberculin to observe whether "there would result a
*- reaction, which, according ■ to their
theory, would indicate whether or not
the child was a consumptive,
There are four ways that the physicians applied these tests. The stuff
was Injected Into their eyes, Injected
-subcutaneously, was massaged into
their flesh, and ln the scarification test
both humnn and bovine tuberculine
were applied.
In a statement in their own dofariso
made to the public the physicians identified with tho experimental testa at
St. Vincent's Home, Insist that the
tests wero not experimental but precautionary.

are now enabled not only to report
on the results of our-own investigations, but also to point out their relationship to the work which has already* been done, which may add
something1 in the general concensus
to the clearing-up of this undeveloped
The paragraphs relating to the surprising admission made by these physicians that the eye tests never should
have been made, taken from their report verbatim, are as follows:
, "Before beginning the application of
the conjunctival test we had no knowledge of any serious results from its
use. It is unquestionably much easier of application than the other tests,
and it probably yields results a little
more quickly, but it has the great disadvantage of producing a decidedly uncomfortable lesion, and it is not infrequently followed by serious inflammations of the eye, which not only produce great physical discomfort, but
which may permanently affect the vision and even lead to its'complete destruction.
"In our1 series we have had two
cases of severe purulent unilateral
conjunctivitis, 6 severe recurring phlyctenular conjunctivitis one of which
developed corneal ulcers, nnd one case
of keratocylltis with a large central
corneal ulcer.
"Permanent disturbance of vision Js
sure to follow tn this last case from
the central scara, even should the associated lesion,'which at present is* in
a very unpromising state, clear up
"While we are willing to admit the
assertion of Calmette that many of
the complications ,may be due to the
reaction, inflammation paving the way
for the development of pre-existing or
superadded or Infectious organisms,
we do' not feel that this in any sense
justifies the test. •
"In fact, we are strongly of the
opinion that any diagnostic procedure
which will so frequently result In serious lesions of the eye, irrespective of
the way in which it produces them;
has no justification in medicine, especially since theer are other diagnostic tests of equal if not superior
value, which are applicable to the
same class of bases and not attended
with the same disturbing results."
To the official medical report of the
tests the following three signatures
are attached, all of them those of
prominent physicians in this city: Dr.
Samuel McC. Hamill, Dr. Howard
Childs Carpenter and Dr. Thomas A.
Cope. In this report the following
comment was made:
"Before beginning the application of
the, conjunctival test (the eye-test)
we had no knowledge of any serious
results from its use.
"It is unquestionably much easier
of application than the other tests,
But~_it'_has~th"e""gi'eat^disadvantage, of"
producing a decidedly uncomfortable
lesion, aind it is not infrequently followed by serious inflammation of the
eye, which not only produces great
physical discomfort and requires
weeks of active treatment, but which
may permanently affect the vision
and even lead to ,lts complete destruction." ,!
Thero is no law .forbidding these
monsters from using orphan children
as experimental material. They can
go ahead with their serene dignity,
and continually endanger the lives of
motherless and fatherless babes.
A very brief examination will suffice to ssow the weakness of the
foundation on which the' scheme was
based. Take the case of a workman
earning 2 pounds a week, or roughly,
$500 a year. According to the plan
five per cent would be deducted from
his wages,! and at the end of the year
he would have $25 invested in the
company. On this ?25 h,e would receive a dividend at the rate of four
per ce_t; that is to say, 7s. net, or less
than a penny a week. It is hardly
likely that this paltry sum would
weigh with him in any dispute, as to
wages, ,or that for a penny a week
in the hand he would-consent to forego his right to strike forOd.or Is. a
week extra. After twelve years constant saving under the scheme his total investment would amount to ?30CT
earning a dividend of less than Is per
week. Even t.his is hardly enough to
turn the scale in the case of a man
whose chief interest is the price at
which he can sell his labor. Moreover, after a year's fair trjial the men
have discovered that the scheme will
not guarantee them continuity of employment, and some of the unemployed workmen who might have utilized
their savings to better advantage, had
to go to the workhouse. The workman who saves really wants a safe
and steady form of investment. Ho
wants something he can lay his hands
on and realize at almost a moment's
notice, to tide him over a rainy day,
and he has now rejected a scheme
which ties up his savings in a speculative industrial venture.
By Associate Editor 'Snips,' ln Reynolds:
Sir Christopher Furness's attempt to
establish a co-partnery scheme ln his
shipbuilding yards at Hartlepool was
a gallant and Quixotic attempt to
make pigs fly. Had ho succeeded he
would have deserved his laurels. Ho
had tho good wishes of nil Impartial
observers, but those who had witnessed in tho past many schemes of this
kind go up llko a rocket and come
down llko n stick, smiled upon his of-
forts with good-natured scepticism. In
brief, he sought to convert tho worker
Into a kind of hybrid capitalist. Ho
proposed his mon Bhould lnvost flvo
por cent, of their weekly wago In tho
business and that they should bo paid
a fixed Interest of four per cf-nt, on
tho total amount so Invented, On tho
othor hnnd, thoy woro to surrender tho

The Royal Northwest Mounted Police force of Canada is a combination
of all sorts and conditions of men,
blown together by the round-up of
the winds of heaven. In the ranks
we find western bronco-busters, unas-
pirated Cockneys, Cree-Scott halfbreed
time expired men from every branch
of the Imperial service, side by side
with the French Canadian bowi "tree
days below Kebec." Two years the
roll call included a son of a colonial
governor, a grandson of a major general, a medical student from Dublin,
an Oxford M. A., two trpopers from
the Imperial forces and half a dozen
ubiquitous Scots. For many years a
son of Charles Dickens did honorable
service with this force, and there served beside him a runaway circus clown
and the brother of a Yorkshire baron-
ej. Several of the full privates have
tucked away in the bottom of their
mess-kit medals won in South Africa,
Egypt and Afghanistan, but the lost
legion of gentleman rankers predominates and it Is Rugby and Cambridge out here on the unbroken prairies that set' the fashion in mufti
and manners.

The beat of the mounted policeman

the frozen Arctic, and he does not
take tips or sleep on duty; you cannot bluff him and you cannot bulldoze
him, and it is not exactly safe to try
to square him,
Of this man as of Lord Bobs, we
may say '"E don't advertise"; it is
the boast of" the service ln Canada
that they seldom get into print. Yet
it is strikingly true that on tbe margin of every page of the unwritten history of this great lone land the figure
Is the solitary horseman Is vignetted.

W. Orr, an electrical contractor, was
positively identified on Wednesday by
N. E. Lovall, travelling, guard of
Washington, as the convict who escaped from him in Pasco in 1908. Orr
still maintains that he has never been
in prison and that he is not the man
who is now wanted by the Washington authorities.
Lovall had Orr and nine other men
In custody and was taking them to
the,state prison at Walla Walla., As
they were changing cars at Pasco
one man' escaped. This is now said
to be Orr. Lovall charges ,that the
voice, speech features and other characteristics of the man in custody are
the same as those of Orr. and ..he further states that he is positive that Orr
is the escaped convict.
On- has engaged counsel and says
that he will fight against what he is
now calling a scheme to railroad him
to the state prison. He states that
he arrived at Portland on October 26,

One of the season's great play successes is a play called "Nancy" which
was written by C. H. Kerr, author of
The' Beauty Doctor, Little Dollie Dimples, Papa's Baby, Over the Fence,
etc., etc. This piece will be presented in this city for one night, May 2nd,
at the Grand Theatre, and comes with
a great company, headed by tjie peerless comedienne, Grace Cameron. The
play is delightful and refreshing, full
of heart interest and highly diverting
comedy situations. The production
comes here in its entirety, the same
as in all the Metropolitan cities. There
has been some controversy amongst
our theatre goers as to whether we
were to liave the original No. 1 (or big
city) company in Nancy, or a secondary company.
The manager of the Grand wishes
to inform his patrons that the original
No. one company headed by Grace
Cameron   will be at the local theatre,

game. It would certainly be an excellent plan if the
city would apportion sufficient space in the park to the
different clubs, so that the disappointment tbat has arisen
from time to time would be obviated and encouragement
given to the various athletic games, and not as has been
in the past, expenses in'clearing suitable grounds incurred only to have the use of the ground for a very brief
period, and then to be "told that it is needed by the owners. This is of course an, excellent plan for the owner
to have the value enhanced at the -minimum of expense,
but is decidedly discouraging to those who go to the trouble of giving both time and money to aid the devotees of
field pastimes, to have their efforts practically nullified
and the benefit, expropriated ('ware confiscated) by the
owner of the property improved.
That any owner can be expected to lose the use of his
land because it is required for games is not reasonable to
expect, and on the other hand those,who have' done the
necessary work to put a ground into shape for playing on
naturally do not relish the idea of getting but scant benefit from their outlay. o
. The history of the football ground is known to all the
residents of two years, but the most striking illustration
Is in connection with the baseball grounds. Probably
if the Athletic Association would take up this matter with
the civic authorities some ways,and means oould be adopted to the end suggested nnd then there would be a
city playground of a permanent character.

May the 1st marks the- coming of age of'this holiday that is now known as tlie International Labor Day, as
it was first instituted in Paris In 1889. There is no legendary history connected -with this celebration, but. each
year sees the number of those who are adherents to the
cause.of Labor increase, not only'in numbers, but in knowledge of'the philosophy of Socialism, thereby enabling
them to bettor understand Hie source of their conditions
and an appreciation of the change that is necessary to
take place in order to accomplish their emancipation
from the shackles of wage slavery.
Although the singing of "The International." the
workers hymn of deliverance will be a prominent feature
hi all gatherings, yet this merely symbolizes a determination to put forth every effort to the'end that* man shall
be truly free and not merely a victim of conditions that
place him among "commodities."
The Socialists of Fernie will hold a demonstration
in the Grand Opera House on Sunday next, and if one
believes ih the power of suggestion the combined influences of like assemblies through the whole commercial
world must have great influence upon the mental state
of the masses. There is no subject at this'present day
that occupies the minds of the world's statesmen more
than the contemplation of what are the best means to be
adopted to stem the growing dissatisfaction throughout
human society, and although many pallatlves have been
suggested and tried, so long as the profit system remains
there can be no solution.
The present voting strength   of the    International
Socialists is- over ten millions, which only   partly repre-
Practically every one who has made, an examination
of our lire department recognizes that in so far as equipment is concerned, favorable comparison can be made
with cities larger than ours, and with respect to the personal capabilities of our fire fighters, they are second to
none in the province.
There is one .very important factor, however,   that.
demands immediate attention.     At the present time the
only method whereby  an alarm can be turned in    is
through the 'phone, and,this more particularly at night,
may cause a- delay, jeopardizing both, life and property.
This state of affairs should bo remedied, and that quickly
by the inauguration of the best system   for furnishing
alarms that is at present on the market,    Gamewells,' so
far as we know, stands in a class by itself.    As soon as
practicable subsidary stations ought to be located    in
suitable parts of the city.

Corporation of the City of Fernie' intends to proceed jvith the construction

fronting upon such sidewalks, and to
obtain the requisite money therefor
by issue of Local Improvement Debentures.
Notice is also hereby given that assessments will be made against such
property so benefited by such proposed sidewalks in order to meet^ the
principal and interest of such Debentures; the crossings will bo "divided

The owners of corner, lots are assessed for full frontage walk and two-
thirds of sideage .walk, tho remaining

is not possible, because of inadequacy, both as regards
the corps of teachers not being numerous'enough, and the
buildings not large enough to fulfil the requirements.
We hope this deficiency .may shortly be remedied, when
we shall endeavor to enlist our readers in a campaign
against truancy, as we believe that every boy and girl
should receive as good an education as is possible for
them to obtain, and not as is too often the case, be allowed to run about the streets, and put .o work before the
legal age,       "

The smoking concert in aid of the
Football club was a grand success
from start to finish. The committee
deserve every praise and encouragement for, the smart way in which the
. program^was carried out.    The chalr-
, man of the evening wa*s John Shanks,
Esq., who handled the, boys in fine
style, and kept the'program in  .full
. swing. ,He said it gave him much
pleasure to be present to present the
league cup .which they had won so
many times. He also hoped that their
success would be greater this year by
a strong effort to, win the Mutz cup.
The cup was then filled by the secretary, "Bill" Hughes with that stuff the
.Indians call fire water, but which tasted very much like,* whiskey, and was
handed around to every one in the
hall to drink success to the Coal Creek
football club, which was done in* a
hearty manner. The musical program was started with a beautiful.ten-
or song by Robert Sampson, after
which the following gentlemen contrib-
• uted to the evening's entertainment:
James Smith, comio song; Joe Ham-
»er, Robert Coates, Robert Hubbersty,
Davo Archibald, Geo. Smith. Geo. Finlayson, Jestyn Foster, Dan Oliver, J.
T. Puckey, Mr. Dooley, Robt. Patrick,
Ike Limn, William Corbett.' Prof.** Evans of Fernie was the accompanist.
The refreshments were given free by
the Fort Steele Brewing Company and
the Pollock Wine Company. The singing of Auld Lang Syne at 12 o'clock
brought a most enjoyable, evening to
a close, when everybody went quietly
home to dream of what they had got,
' and what thoy might expect at,the end

require fixing. They were badly needed last August. There was some suggestion at the inquiry after the fire of
restarting the fire brigade. Now,- that
tlio nights are lengthening it would be
a good time to start practicing with
the hose reels, there aro still some of
the old brigade here, and with a, few
additions they might become useful if

If any of our readers are wondering
where will be the best place to spend
the day on the '2nd' of May we would
certainly recommend Michel to those
who prefer to take a jaunt out of
town rather than stay home. As
much real enjoyment as is beneficial,
can be obtained between sun-up and
sun-down as is good for the average
individual on the day in question. The
Canadian Club have a programme of
events that will prove decidedly in-'
teresting, and of course the extent of
the importance of the different races
varies according to the opinions of
the individual, nevertheless there is
considerable discussion going on regarding the race between the Norbois
horse and the Eddy mare, and whilst
each have their supporters, those who
are better acquainted with'the career
of the latter * have, a little prejudice
..on behalf of this plucky animal and
are confident that she will give a good
account of herself. .

<ffCourses of Study.    Cf Admission of Pupils
(Written for Mines and Minerals by
P. Dumaine,,Engineer of Mines)
To train mining engineers there are
two large schools at Paris-and, Saint-
Etienne. Technical education in underground methods of working to train
assistants for these engineers is given
also In two principal schools at Douai,
in the norlh and Aiais, in the south.
Also the committee of miners of the
Loire district, organized in 1S92, at
Salnt-Etienne, for the miners of that
region, a school called the Schoolofor
Foreman (Aspirants-gouvorneurs.) It
is well also,to mention the school at.
Anzin, especially created by the company of the' mines at Anzin for the
benefit of its employees.
Before studying the organization of
theso four secondary schools, it is well
to enumerate the different employees
working.in the mine under the orders
of a mining engineer.
First comes tho Inside foreman hav-
■ ing general supervision of the inside
work. The tracing of plans and the
surveying operations are done by a surveyor.
Tho mine is divided into several sections in each of which tliere are about
100 workmen. Over each of these sections there is an.;iassistaiit foreman or
assistant governor who is also helped
by a,,master miner. The shot firers
. have charge of the' blasting iu the
These employees are trained in the
four schools of Douai, Aiais, Saint-
Etienne, and Anzin.
The Schools of Douai and Aiais
Organization: The two schools of
Douai and Aiais are directed by the
chief engineer of the mining district in
which .he schools are located. The
instruction is given by three professors
one having charge of the teaching of
mathematics, and the making of plans
and drawings; the second, of natural
sciences and exploitation of mines;
the third teaching French. A bookkeeper has charge of the management
of expenses, and a proctor has charge
of the discipline.   ■ £
" These schools are boarding schools
, The price of the board is $100 a year,
but a large number of students receive
free scholarships. The schools .are
supported by appropriations from the
partments of Gard and Nord, and by
the cities of Aiais and Douai. The administration of these schools is under
the supervision of an administration
composed of a certain number of high
dignitaries of the department.
TJie scholars have no uniforms but
simply a cap with silver braid and
inslgnias embroidered on the lapels of
their coats. . The total number of students in school is usually 40 at Aiais
and 60 at Douai.'
The length of the course is two
years. For half of this time the students receive at tho school theoretical
Instruction, an account of which will
bo glvon later; the other* half of tho
time Is spent either in the mines of
the district or in other more distant
mlnos whero, according to thoir ability and on the judgment of the director of the school, the students nro employed In tho work of exploitation,
drawing of plans, oto. During thoso
practical exercises thoy pay their own
expenses by means of tho salaries
which thoy receive, according to thoir
work, from tho companies which employ thom.
The greater part of theoretical Instruction Ik given at the beginning of
tho school year whleh lasts four

from Nord and I-nn-ilo-Culaln. During
the month of July tlif.-y piihh nn exam
ination for admission before an examiner named by the Sous-Prefer of their
district. The first examination serves
to eliminate the candidates who have
not sufficient instruction to pass the
final examination with a chance of success. The final examination" takes
place in October, at Aiais on one, part,
and at Douai on the other part, before
a special commission. The candidates
must show that they possess satisfactory elementary instruction, comprising reading, spelling, the first four
parts of arithmetic, decimal numbers,
and the metric system. Besides they
may pass an examination on optional
subjects such as arithmetic, algebra,
geometry, trigonometry, physics and
chemistry. The examiners also question them on the practical knowledge
they have acquired in mlno exploitations. ,The amount of this practical
knowledge has great weight in admitting the candidates.
Course of Study:—The course of
study comprises first, French; second,
elementary knowledge In arithmetic,
algebra, and geometry, whicli is necessary to follow intelligently courses
In technical work; third, special courses on topography, physics, chemistry,
mechanics, mineralogy, geology and
exploitation of mines. The students
have also to follow courses in machine drawing, tracing of plans, land surveying, mine surveying, levelling: road
making. They also make excursions
for geological studies under the guidance of a professor in geology.
The teaching is done in a spirit essentially practical in order to -be' always understood by the students. The
indispensable subjects presented In a
simple form are alone required from
the students.'Supplementary subjects
are optional and are required only
from those who have had sufficient
knowledge at the time of their arrival
at the school.
The time that the students spend
in mining exploitations Is employed in
different work." During that time
they must turn in a report concerning
their work." Upon coming back to
'school the students turn those reports
over to the professors, and they are
questioned on the knowledge they
have acquired during their working
time. The students work in'- the
mines at four 'different times during
their two school years, and as far
as possible they are sent to mines of
_diff_e_renjLkinds ■■ ;
The students who have obtained 65
per cent, of the total number of points
receive a diploma. They easily find
positions' in France or foreign" countries as assistant* inside foremen (por-
ions),* master miners, surveyors in
mines. A certain number reach more
important situations. Tho students
of Douai and Aiais may bo classed
according to the followingstable:

from October to tho IiihI of July. Tho
teaching is given every day' except
Sundays and holidays, from 3 to 6 o'clock. Students spend the mornings
at work in the. mines.
The teaching is done by a professor
director and a professor. Their salaries and all the expenses are under
the charge.of the Mining Committee,
(Comite de Houilleres.) •
* The aim of the teaching is to give
the students the clearest examinations
possible in connection with the subjects that are essential to the operation of mines. The explanations are
1. On the underground conditions,
work of the men and tools, use of explosives, repairs, ventilation, lighting
and plans of mines,
2. On the administrative laws.
This  teaching  is  supplemented by
the fundamental principles of mechanics, physics nad chemistry.
Results: In 15 years about 200 students, that is to say, about 13 each
year hnve completed these courses,
and occupied the following positions:
Inside foremen,* 20; assistant foremen,
86; fire bosses, 12; watchmen, 4;
dead, and others, 7'2!
The mining companies in the Loire
district are well satisfied with the results given by the school. They do not
regret the expenditures they have
been called upon make, and. are going to continue them in the future,
and even enlarge them.   .
Preparatory School of the Anzin
Organization: A preparatory school
is also situated at A.nzin. This school
receives only the workmen of the
company of at-least. 16 years'of age,
and already familiarized somewhat
with the practice of mining. They
must have an elementary knowledge
of reading, writing, spelling and arithmetic. The candidates who desire to
follow the course pass a preliminary
examination in the division in which
they' are a* part. • 'A classification is
made among the candidates, of each
division and the first two are admitted to follow the course. For ,this
examination a rating is given on behavior and work by the directors.of each
\ The length of the courses is two
years, each year counting .from the
first of January to the 15th of November. The studies are followed three
days a week, Tuesdays, Fridays "and
being in,attendance the same day, one
professor taking the students of the
first year, and another* those of the
second. *
The length of the lesson period is
VA hours, from 5 o'clock to half-past,
six. Half this time is devoted to the
lectures and the other half to explanations and interrogations.
The first year's teaching comprises
the principles of physics, mechanics,
French, arithmetic and plane geometry. The second yoar includes physics nnd mechanics, French, the exploitation of mines, a little geology
and the tracing of plans,  ,
The students take notes and 'arrange them, nt home, try to Improve
their writing, making their sketches

• Can anybody blame these unorganized men for choosing as they did in
this case?.
Now we are beginning to learn 'what
the'"free contract" means;'that free
contract between the buyer and the
seller of labor power.  ,
It is a new version of, that eternal
law of supply and demand,* a version
that seems to work out very nicely;
the* employers demand labor power—
and the, police supply It. .
, There is one great advantage about
this system as far.as the workers are
concerned. It does .away with the
employment shark nuisance. But then
again we face 'another serious social
problem: What-is to become of the
employment agents that have not ,as
yet made their stake?' In the face
of this problem-we would respectfully
advise our honorable statesmen not
to.be too rash; tread easily.

in the South Wales Field  is
Now Settled
The great, dispute in the South
Wales coal trade, which has lasted for
some time and has been fully detailed
in many papers, has practlcaly closed. A ballot of the men has been
taken and the .latest figures show
that the, miners have decided' to accept the terms which were,placed before the.British Miners' Federation.
This, of course,. occurred after the'
Welshmen had thoroughly discussed
the whole matter amongst themselves.
The British Miners' Federation were
asked to give tlieir support in the
impending struggle, and agreed to do
so, but after a private conference, nt
which delegates representing the various Interests were present, It was
decided to recommend the Welsh coal
minors to accept the owners' proposition. The greatest difficulty was the
question in regard to payment for
work in abnormal places. , The owners contended that If a fixed wage
was paid to the men working In such
positions thoy might shirk.the work.
At nny rate tho argument concerning
the matter failed to end hi any agreement, and the British Minors' Federation, having considered It fully,, decided that tho point at Issuo, as well as
others Involved, were not of sufficient Importance to load to a largo

A, E. .Yeager was tried last week
before P. M. J. Ryan at Cranbrook,
charged with obtaining money under
false pretences. " It appears* thnt he
took two very.large coyote pelts to a

■ he claimed they were the skins of
timber wolves, and upon this representation he was paid $30. Chief Sampson

May Day colijures up in the mind of
tho Sv.'nool girt thai beautiful recltat-
< ion about "cull" me early mother, for
tomorrow is the bright May morn";
to the industrial worker there looms
visions of a holiday with its accompanying parades, blare of trumpets and
sounds of oratory; to the furniture re-
. mover it's the day when he makes his
harvest as this is the day fixed upon
by many to "change their domicile.
These various phases of the events

conclusion if he first equips himself
with the proper accessories. A com-
_ plete) shipment of all the hooks, flies,
leaders/ reels, rods, etc., have been unpacked at. Suddaby's and as an examination of them would gladdon the
heart of local *. fishermen, we would
urge that they go early and make
their selection. ''

well being.     A' very lively discussion
ensued at the meeting' held in their
regular quarters on the lower floor of

regarding the much mooted influence

May Day by holding a meeting in the
Opera House, when C, M. O'Brien will
address  the  gathering    on  the vital
question, which is considered by all,
"The   Labor   Problem,"   and   for   the
