Young Life Snuffed Out
In No. 2 Mine-Was
•'■ Exemplary Life
A very sad accident happened this
(Monday) morning about 12.30 at Coal
Creek resulting in the instantaneous
death of Chris DIngsdale. .* Deceased,
who. was nearly.IS years of age, was
in the employ of the Crows Nest
Pass Coal company at'Coal Creek,
where he followed the occupation of
dinkey, or electric motor, driver. ,
. From evidence received he was coming.out bf No. 2 mine,and*as is usual
was riding on the front platform when
-t is surmised that his head,-,came ln
r ,. ,
- contact with a'1 projecting boom which
either struck him with sufficient force
to knock him off, or else he made an
attempt to jump clear, but failed to do
so, arid the motor running over him
inflicted injuries of such a nature
that death must have been Instantaneous. ,*      .'■■*■''.'
.The unfortunate youth' was sfeady,
reliable, and. of a retiring character,
of a .decided mechanical turn of mind,
most ofo his spare money being spent
for models of machinery in which.he
took a great interest. - *''.'.,
His father, who is well known in
the Pass, is at present working in
South Wellington, and only a few days
jigO Joe, a younger brother of the de:
has been Informed of the distressing
event by wire.
The poor mother is stricken sorely,
as this boy. was the man of the house
, In ..his fathers .absence," and .she lias
collapsed' under .tie1 avirfiQness of th'e
.'blow. . • .* "- *,•-&-• ..'■ - ....,'-;'" '
' -Tlie whole family have the heartfelt
sympathy of the entire community In
this horu of dire calamity.
-An inqifost into the accident will be
held  tomorrow  (Tuesday)  night    at
Inquest was held on Thursday evening, and tho jury returned a verdict
of "accidental death." The funeral
took placo on Friday to the local
cemetery. *   Services ln the Anglican

■ (Reynolds)
.Unfortunately the strike at Newport
has hot been satisfactorily settled by
the intervention of the-Board of
Trade. "At one time it *was thought
that some agreement would have been
reached, but it has turned out quite
different from what was expected.TIie
Watch Committee has altered their
previous decision ■ and have now Imported ,300 extra police into the town.
There is not tho slightest doubt but
that trouble of a serious naturo is expected, and to complicate matters
men have been again imported into
the town to "take tho place of the
strikers. Matters went so far that
the Homo Secretary" instructed tho
local authorities to take steps to meet
any contingency. When Sir David
Harrel, the umpire, gave his decision
against the dockers, the ,latter held a
meeting and decided to refuse tho
award. The award was to have
come into force on Monday, but it is
■now likely that-work will not be re-
'sumed 'for .the next two or three
weeks.. Mr. Tom Mann lias visited
Newport and addressed* tho men out
on strike employed by Messrs. Hould-
er Brothers and Mr. I. Mitchell of the
Board of Trade,. has also, tried to
bring about a peaceful settlement.'
Mr. Ben TIHett states that'the men
are opposed to the-alteration of the
present' system of tonnage* payment,
and that-the dockers are dissatisfied
with the definitions in clauses relating to payment under the day system,
and the apparent neglect to recognize
the custom of the port to working time
Sunday work, holiday- time" and the
regulation of the.half-day payments.
Over 100 constabulary men have now
been stationed' on the dock. When
they arrived they were received quietly by the strikers.. They went into
temporary quarters, a huge marquee,
and on Tuesday the SHipping Federation imported 80 men to carry on the
work. _,. At, the present moment it is
difficult'to, tell how the dispute will
end.     •v' ..  .,.. -

three years-ago the management provided electric coal cutters and a new
haulage plant. This was installed at
High Park, Binsley, and Moor Green
Pits... Now tho owners aro pressing
for'a revision of "getting" prices, Involving reductions on the ground that
the miners are getting more coal for
the same amount of work.1 • The men
on tho other hand contend that the
extra earnings are'more than"absorbed by tho Increased cost of explosives and that a greater amount of
labor is involved in broaking up tho

Important Case For
... ,',.■>'■* *    -
Miners at Frank
Jean Baptlste Lobert, a mine employee died on ..July 3rd as a result
of Injuries inflicted by a runaway car
on June 24th. The Canadian Coal
Consolidated Company laid complaint
against Arthur Decaux under the provisions of ttie Provincial'Mines Act,
trying to fix the blame upon him.  '■-■
After Lobert's' death the R. N. W.
M; P. charged Deceaux with being the
cause bf Lobert's death.
The trial of the case in the first
instance was begun on Saturday, July
2nd, which resulted in an adjournment
until ■ a certified copy of the, regulations of the Frank mine was received
from Edmonton. In tho meantime Lobert had. succumbed a coroner's inquest begun.on 'Wednesday'the 6th'at
Frank before Coroner-Pinkney of Lille.
The Company'made determined effort
to attach criminal negligence and malicious J-nterit upon Decaux but without
avail, failing in "every, point.    -
The inquest terminated'at 6 p.m.
on Thursday evening and the jury after, searching inquiry*and earnest deliberation, had been made, actuated
solely by am honest desire to learn the
truth, the whole truth and nothing
but the truth, not only brought in a
verdict of complete exoneration ■ for
Lobert, freeing him" from all blame,
but added strong riders thereto as to
the necessity for making required
changes in the conditions and operation of the Frank mine looking to the
safeguarding of the lives of the em-
ployeer. - A large number of witnesses were examined and the able manner
in which the jurors performed their
duties i8*a splendid tribute to their
After an hour's careful deliberation
the following verdict was rendered:
"That Jean Baptlste Lobert came
to his death as a result of Injuries received at shaft mine, through being
struc by a mine car having been accidentally allowed . to run away by
one Arthur Deceaux."
Rider 1: And we severely criticize
the mine management for allowing drivers and loaders to handle their cars
without strictly observing the rules
relating,to the same; and for not providing some means of communication
whereby drivers and loaders might
warn men at the shaft bottom of cars
having got beyond control. *
Rider 2: And we recommend that
the grade of the south slope be lowered, so as to reduce danger, and taht a
stop block be placed in such a position oas to stop runaway cars before
arrival at a,point where men may be
Rider 3: And we recommend that
the ^management shall -acquaint all
men 'working in the mine "as to who
is IN FACT Pit Boss, to whom men
may make reports ^and from whom
they must take their instructions, and
that the rules regarding the handling
of cars be printed in both French and
English and be posted in a conspicuous place in the mine.
W. C. Simmons, barrister of Lethbridge, had the case well in hand for
Deceaux and the TJ. M. W, A':, making
a masterly defence on behalf of his
client, and accompanying the jurors
to the scene of the accident where a
thorough Investigation lasting over an
hour and a quarter was * made" and
valuable data secured on which they
could premise their verdict.
President Powell, Vice-President C.
.Stubbs and International Board Member Charles Garner worked valiantly
in their efforts to free the unfortunate
brother from the unjust imputations
that were assayed against him.

Despite the verdict so emphatic in
its rendering Deceaux was incarcerated in a cell at the police barracks,

of straight murder.

Other . trades. unions such as the
United "Mine Workers, are gradually
of all working In their respective industry. ,
The Mine Workers consider that It
xis of just as great importance to get
the "common'..laborer into the union
as thejnost highly skilled miner. The
only ones excluded are the foremen.
In contrast to this we see some1 of
the unions ■ in Seattle, as well as all
other cities in the country mako great
efforts to have union foremen while
it is of little or no Importance whether
tho comman laborer fs a union man or
not.     If any ono doubts this ho has

The first 'attempt to explore the Wellington Pit at Whitehaven with a view
to the recovery of the bodies.' was '
made early in the week when .a parly
•numbering about 12, and including Mr.
J., B. Atkinson and Mr. W. Leek,
H. M. Inspectors, went down. They
proceeded to "the stopping of the intake, and from there, several of them
having put on patent breathing apparatus, were able to proceed (for some
distance, and found the road full of
firedamp. Two were obliged to return owning to;the fact that their helmets were uot working properly, but
the remainder proceeded some 700 or
more yards :to the "point where the
brattice which,was erected,by the rescue party__on the ,day following the
accident stopped, and * here the thermometer was found to register 85 degrees,. Two of the party went on for
another 200 yards, or to a point some
60 yards' from the friction gear which,
was thereat of the fire. Here they
came „upon„a heavy fall and further
.progress was stopped. Their opinion
is that the fire in the mine is now
extinguished and steps were taken to >

Many have been the comments made
by people, press and pulpit regarding
Halley's Comet. Now wo have Information from notable stellar students
resident In Franco that the comet seen
was nothing but a stranger, and that
the real, genuine, authoritative celestial body whose reappearance is mado
each 75 years, has been sidetracked,
and will not be due until September. A
wireless message from the Man in the
Moon has been duly delivered, from
which we gather the astounding news
that his affinity was a passenger on
Halley's comet, consequently there ,is
quite a confab going on relative to the
planet Terra and Its queer people. The
explanation of this unexpected meeting
is indeed prosaic, merely a short missive intercepted by the fast fleeting
and fiery wanderer, whilst pursuing
his maddening flight, caught up "The
Lost Love Message" and as the Queen
of the Meteor enjoys . the monopoly
of the right of Trover .when she read
its contents decided to interview; the
correspondent on Luna and from hhn
ascertain more data relative to the
strange proceedings,of the dwellers ou
this sphere.
'" That our readers who have been long
awaiting the scientists to attain communication from Mars may be apprised
of the contents of this-wonderful document we append a translation:
My dear a'ngelic ETAOIN
My short visit to your abode is
fraught with pleasant' remembrances
yet there are ,'certain incidents that
have left an indelible impression oh
my memory and I'often wonder whe-
vain. Those sights and conditions
which puzzle the brain and make one
feel tliat earths denizens attribute to
our planet Luna the cause of .dementia merely to cast from their shoulders
the odium they put on us. Do they
still allow the men whose labors are
the least useful to live under the best
conditions whilst they who do the hardest toil eat the coarsest fare and wear
the cheapest clothing?     '
Do you remember the day that we
strolled along tho prairie when the
mild eyed cows stared at us and at
our approach the frisky young colts
threw up their heels and with the wild
abandon of freedom scampered away
snorting and neighing? But, ah, how
differently It appeared to me when
you showed me the'dull, dead expression of those whom your pools doclaro
as but little removed from tbo gods,
Wearied, black facod, and with such
load like, expressions as though lifo
was to them an empty yold and when
I asked If thoy woro prisoners doomed
lo wander thus for some heinous crime

An Attempt is Made to
Stir up Italian Miners
Against Officials
- Belleville, 111., June 23.—Since the
attempt of the Illinois Coal Operators
Association to have the engineers pull
away from the United Mino Workers
of America has proven such a dismal
failure, their batteries are now directed against the officials of the miners
union, and every sheet that.will sell
Itself to them Is being filled with lies
of the lowest calibre. "   '     ,
.Duncan McDonald and John 'Walker
are made the special targets for attack by the operators and their agents. . The state is being flooded with
circulars in the French, Bohemian and
Italian languages, issued from the operators camp.. They have several publications such as "Black Diamond and
Fuel," ,etc,, all of which contain the
foulest conceivable lies. , In every
issue the integrity of the miners officials' is being attacked ih the hope
that, it will, destroy the confidence of
,jthe members.
A special effort is being made to
arouse • the Italian members aigainst
the officials. To show the length to
which our " business partners" during
the last twelve years will go, I quote
a few extracts, from a translation out
of au Italian newspaper-published in
Chicago and is headed ."Our Miners
are the Blind Instruments in the,
Hands,of Their Leaders.' What we
are looking at is not the strike' itself,
but, the causes that have .thrown the
Italian miners into a strike in which
they are not interested at all.
"It looks like the Italian miner is
humble and suffering while'others are
enjoying the unshrewdness of the Italian miners.
"The local'officers of the miners'
union, John Walker,, and' Duncan Mc-
Donald, are trying to do something dif-.
ferent from what Thomas Lewis-is sug:"
gesting just because' the latter won
in tlie recent elctions. . Therefore the
fight is not engaged on behalf ot this
class of miners, but for the personal
interests of a very few officers, and
miners must'pay the expenses of the
"A/proof of tlie ill-will of the officers is shown by .the fact that it has
been permitted lo tho miners by Duncan McDonald, John Walker and Robert Osborne to resume work in tho
mines at Marseilles, Ind. without tho
increase of two cents per ton,* just because the Scotch manager of these,
mines, who is a countryman to Walker
has met with tho Scotch miners, did
not llko to throw his countrymen into
a strike, and therefore ho permitted
hlm to resume work with the same
Incronoo as In the Ohio, Pennsylvania
Iowa and Indiana."
,The Kalian pnpor in question is being shipped in bundles Into the mining
camps where there are Italians with
tho view of arousing thom against the
other nationalities,
The. mlno owners, might have played

the farmhands about the place, is,an
ordeal which waits for "many of our
women, to their infinite hurt and also
that of the next generation. .When
I was over in Canada studying conditions for women I found that on Pender ■ Island, British Columbia, where
there are eighty children' of school
age, there, was no nurse or doctor;
the Jubilee hospital at "Victoria had
no maternity wing; Duncan on Vancouver Island had two doctors to a
section of forty miles; the doctor of
Davidson In Saskatchewan attended a
district of sixty miles; thero was no
nurse at Yellowgrass or Wood mountain; the city hospital at Regina had
only three rooms for maternity cases.
These are a few facts and represent
littlo of the case. Within driving distance of the city a woman Hearing her
conllhement may consider herself to
be more or less safe; some one will be
found to help. But tho wives on outlying ranches and farms, and there
are hundreds of them—spend hideous
hours looking .forward to the day of
trial with every prospect of scrambling through entirely'alone, at the risk
of the babys life as well as their own
or else relying ou thc attention of
some half breed, whose knowledge of
the .elementary rules of cleanliness' Is
less thai, nothing. Any obstetrician
reading this will realize what I .mean
when I say that such meglect leads
to the train of evils whicli necessitates the building of gynecological
wings on 'hospitals.   ".
There are in England more mid-
wives and maternity nurses, excellently trained in first class hospitals than
can,find work. Would.it not be possible to organize some* scheme by
which tliey could meet the---.crying
need'- over, there?
It appears to me that the only way
to get at the lonely farms Is through
bands of itinerant midwives, a sort
of mobile corps unattached -'to any
town or building, but working under
efficient direction.

The big black had it on Jeffries in
the big fight' at Reno all tho way.
At no stage of the mill did the big
boilermaker havo his man on the run,
and from the press despatches it appears that Johnson's left upper cuts
landed at will in fact that' wing won
liis fight.
Jeffries landed hard but not often,
and contrary to general expectations,
' the big black was equally as strong
as Jeff and a better boxer.
Much excitement was displayed locally and half a dozen places around
town handed out the elope fresll from
. the wires.     *-*

fight, as given to the Ledger through

and smiled; men continued in a locked
embrace and as gong sounded the

shoulder and went to his corner. Jeff

The case of Ar.thur Deceaux at Frank, Alia., charged
with murder by the R. N. W. M. P. and imprisoned at
Maeleod Is Indeed a most astounding one, considering the
sweeping character of the verdict rendered at the Coroner's inquest exonerating in toto the unfortunnto man
from any malicious intent; furthermore, riders worded
as emphatically and as clearly as tlie English language
permits severely censured the management of the mine
because of conditions ascertained when making a visit
to the scene of tho accident that were of such a character as lo make still more perilous the hazardous risks incident to coal mining.
'Despite all this evidence the Crown prosecutor practically' ignores these findings, and the innocent victim of
the deplorable fatality is, immured in durance vile, there
to await, trial whicli is expected to take place eight clays
hence. Such methods are certainly worthy of the attention of the higher authorities. If this be the treatment
meted out in faco of verdicts rendered, why not dispense
with coroners' juries' entirely, otherwise their deliberations may be considered as so much waste of time. We
have much more, to say cn this peculiar incident, and
will deal with it at length in our iiext issue.
the most powerful factors coupled with   the awakened
sense of the proletariat as to its* real purpose in its com-
plete cessation. No matter how hazardous the venture,
and regardless of the hopelessness of the case, men have
offered themselves as victims of Moloch, while those
whose coffers have ben enriched thereby enjoyed ■ an
immunity from personal injury; this will be changed, as
the missile's dropped from above' will be no respecters of
persons, and death, the great leveller, will be just as
likely in reaching its mark to strike down a profit monger as a pauper. Again, if -conflict in mid air be in progress and the enemy be dashed to earth its very contents
may do incalculable damage to those who are partizans
of the aerial victor., Before this condition arrives, that
is the abolition of war, we may have Hague conferences
of those who dimly sense, the future, calling loudly for
international armies and partial disarmament at least of
the several nations involved. Of what use will mammoth Dreadnaughts be when a handful of men can annihilate them? Various military authorities are urging the
necessity bf paying more attention to this adjunct of
war with a view single to its utilization when hostilities
arise, little dreaming that it is a two-edged sword.
War will end, mot" because wo wish it so, nor for lack
of men to engage;in mortal combat; no mattor how perilous it may be, but simply on account of the promiscuity
of destruction preventing those from seeking shelter as
has been, the case In the past, and tliey may find them-

solves "hoisted by their own petard." To escape so terrible a state of affairs would necessitate a transmigration to another planet, as there' would be no asylum of
refuge available on this sphere.
To sum up. The real purposo of war is Profit. The
class that obtains this engage in war but little.' Aeronautics means a revolution' of tactics. The active participants will still do tlieir master's bidding. The master class, though passive will be by no means immune
from the effects. Self, preservation being the first law
of nature it, will be loudly proclaimed that war is highly
immoral and then is the beginning of the' end.
, We elo mot delude ourselves with any vain: hopes
of this being consummated for many decades, but it is
as sure of ultimate realization as that, the earth do

Corbin B. C. July 2   .
Editor Ledger:
The letter by Charles Garner which
appeared in your paper* lately has certainly given some people food for
thought. Each one of the' parties referred to shelves the blairie and tries
to-put it on somebody else's shoulders. P. Burns and Co. manager will
tell you that so far as his company is
concerned  that  the   benefits   of, tho
high prices go into tho pockets of the
Flathead' Trading Company because
they charge so much'for the privilege
of doing, business. This may be correct or not, T don't know as I have no
way of finding out,1 but this I do know
that our meat bill is 15 per cent higher than It used to bo in Fernie. If
you say anything in the Flathead
Trading company store about prices
being so much higher than they are
in tho other camps around it is the
railway, charges that are to blame.
Be this as It may nobody who lives
up here will be backward in saying
that those who complain about the
cost of living in othei- places ought
to come, to Corbin for, an experience.
If the railway company is the guilty
party then there is a splendid opportunity for tho Railway Commission to
look into the charges for freight and
passenger rates and at the same time
havo the, people show their charges
on express. This railroad operates
under a charter as the Eastern, British Columbia and therefore should be
subject to investigation just the same
as any other railroad or chartered institution.    '
Thero are other matters which I
may. write about later, but these questions can wait over .until the high cost
of living up here is threshed out", and
it is to be hoped that the blame for it
will be laid at the doors of the responsible parties.
If the Coal Company is really anx-,
ious lo get good men to como here arid
stay it is up to them to see that expenses are put on an equal footing
with other places so far as the buying
value of a dollar is concerned.
Thanking you for printing this, I
am, yours very truly,

paper of the district that soems to
air the working man's point of view
I should like to give a little ir stance
of how the shoe pinches down at Hosmer. Sam^legwig owes a tradesman
?GC. Sam gives tho .tradesman 'an
assignment of his wages. The merchant draws soj.no $30 on the assignment when Sam got scared of his
working place on account of two men
being killed and quit. Whereupon the
merchant has Alo'gwig arrested for obtaining goods under false pretences,
Mogwjg's partners go to square up
tho account and .are told that thore
is $30 for attorney's.fees, which they
refuse to pay. Now ns soon as the
account Is squared up the merchant
withdraws the case and Mogwig Is
forthwith let out and everybody Is
satisfied except tho lawyor.
Now ..Ir, Editor, why should the pot-
,ty polico court bo usod as a collection agency, and why should a magistrate Issuo a warrant for the arrest of
a man on a criminal charge lightly dismiss the case?
If tlio man Is charged willi obtaining
goods under falso pretences, why wo
understand thai tho caso Is thon ono
for tho crown to handle, so that the
public may havo a chance to seo Unit
tho low is rightly administered, This
is one of tho cases whoro it soems lo
bo all right for tlio merchant to stand
In with tlio .7. P., and use tho polico
court iih a collection agonc.y nnel also
(o help a lawyer to collect foes.

A sad accident occurred here,  on
Wednesday morning, the 6th inst., at
7 a.m..    As train No. 1434 was backing
up on the siding ,C. Janes, the tailend
' brakeman, lost his life.     The unfor-
■ tunate man was getting on the cars,'
when.he lost his hold and fell in be-
'tween them.    ,Two box cars and tho
tender "of the engine passed over him.
Brakeman R. Killing saw James slip(
but, before the train could, be brought
to a standstill the cars as mentioned
above, had passed over his body. The
unfortunate man, was frightfully mutilated, both legs being broken off,
one hand ciit off and his leg broken in
three places and a,compound fracture
of the skull. .Death was instantaneous.
As the coroner at Michel could not
be located a wire was sent to Coroner Bleasdell of Fernie to come at
once, and the inquest * was held the
-same day at'5 p.m., when the following verdict was given by the jury: We
find that deceased came to his death
. through accident, and attach blame
'   to no one. • ' *        .

The Michel, football team went down
to defeat on Saturday for the first
time this season'by the score of two
to 1. The team of Fernie were responsible for administering the bitter
pill. The Michel boys could not play
for nuts and that is the reason why
tbey lost.,
While visiting Fernie quite a number of the players took the advantage
of visiting the Ledger plant. The
head typist was a jolly good fellow,
showing the. "boys how the linotype

finished up by giving each of them
a memento in remembrance of their

sollicitent 1'attention du Parlement et
qui interessent tout particullerement
les ouvriers mineurs, nous pouvons ci-
ter la question 'des pensions aux in-.
valldes et aux_ vieux uses par le travail.,
Depuis de nombreuses annees, cette
reforme fait l'objet de rapports dans
nos congres, des discussions et des
manifestations dans le pays, de questions posees par nos deputes au parlement, d'articles de presse, ete. *
Depuis lorigtemps, deja, nos fre es
mineurs des autres nations ont obtenu
des avantages, sous ce rapport, alors
qu'lei en Belgique, nous devrons, encore batailler pour1 la faire admettre.
Les maitres charbonnlers ot l'Etat
qui retirent de la force de travail de
l'ouvrier mlneur, et' de tout salaire,
tout ce qu'il y a de plus profitable, et
Iui imposent. tant de devoirs doivent
eu toute -justice, intervenir en sa' faveur, iorsqu'il est devenu incapable
de ne plus fournir un travail remun-
' Dans toutes les industries, on con-
sa6re une part des benefices produits
par les ouvriers, a l'amortissement,
pour l'usure du materiel, et constitue
des- reserves, pour . le remplacement
de celui qui est devenu vieux. ' Ces
nrecautioiis* sages, prises pour 1'outil-
lage use et vieux, dolverit etre prises

uses on vieux.
Jusque'mainteinant, plusieurs tenta-
tlves (oh! bien timides) ont ete faites
en faveur de certains vieux; d'abord,
l'affiliation a la caisse de retraite, 1'-
obligation faito par certains patrons'
a leurs ouvriers de s'afflller a uno
caisse speciale, puis la loi du lz mal
1900, et d'autres systemes,"dits bases
sur la solidarite.     ,     ',
Tout ces systemes ont fait fail ite,
parce qu'ils etaient trop bases sur la
llberte individuelle, qui jusque main-
tenant n'a fnvorlse que les qlus alses,
et toujours ont sacrifle ceux qui en
avaient lo plus b'osoln dans lour val-
idlte, ot surtout dans lour vielllesse, et
cela parce que la. cause princlpale est

just issued-issued its annual report.
The contributions paid by members,
amounted to £4.615. 6n looking at

to think that, considering the income,
the working expenses have been rath
er heavy. The Association has a
membership of 9,'391 to date, and these
are  informed  that no  cash benefits
.can be paid from the funds until 12
months continuous v membership has
been completed, and then the applicant must be up-to-date with his" subscriptions.

Those who witnessed the free exhibition of a span of fiery steeds belonging to the Fernie Cartage Company
no doubt will be greatly surprised to
'earn that little injury was the result.
These escapades are entirely too frequent ancl drastic measures are in
order otherwise we may have to chronicle a calamity nnd then there will
be a howl of Indignation, and tho shaking of heads with the I Told You So
expression. No horses should be allowed to remain standing in tlie street
unless with a weight attached. Some
of the four legged delinquents who are
known to bo "chronics' ought to have
a kedge anchor for a retainer.
