Three Essays on the Gircus
As it Appeared to Three
Public School Kids
This circus was the best.exhibition
of trained wild animals I have ever had
the pleasure of witnessing. It seems
to me that a good deal of credit is
due to'the trainers for their patience
and skill as It-miist'take a good deal
of,:these two virtues to train these
dumb animals to respond so readily to
the word of command.
(First. Prize Essay written by Elsie
Woodhouse,-age 1., division 1.)
I enjoyed-a great treat at the circus
on Thursday afternoon.,* On entering
' the tent whero tho animals performed
•I saw three rings, one at. either end
and merely bounded by a rope,,while
the central one, or great arena, was
enclosed bya large Iron cage. . it was
"ih this that the most' dangerous annuals performed.:'The procession came
first headed,by a young lady,' consist-
. ing of elephants, camels,' ponies and
dogs," followed,    by,, two    ridiculous
, clowns, who kept.the people in a roar
of laughter by their antics. As the
performance was carried on' In the
_■ three.rings .simultaneously it was Impossible to see,all, but I will endeavor
';', to give a brief "description of the great
arena as this was of the greatest interest to me. *-i -• ,'**
, A" young..lady,first entered, introducing a jaguar and some spotted leo-'
pards.    .TheBe animals under her'di-
> , rection sat up on seats, climbed from
*-   one to the other, rolled on the ground,
- teetered with her, and In many ways
* showed how completely they were un-
*"■• der her control.    One great brute she
took to the centre of the ring, stretched it out full length and then laid oh
_t, petting it while the savage animal
growled at her. '. -

to enjoy it.     It was a -very   close
-match. -'7*   ; '.*• n
Then came a troupe of fierce looking
lions, brought from South Africa, and
introduced by Mr. Kelly.   , Ono    of
-them he could lie, sit or stand on, even
putting his hnnds and face Into Its
mouth.    On this one he stood to do a
trick nt the top of tho cage with a

■The performance commencd about
3 o'clock and was very funny and interesting from start to finish. I had a
good seat near the front where, I
could see all that was going on. The
clowns came near me two or three
times, and I was a little frightened of
them at first. They looked, so queer
with their painted faces and their
tall peaked hats. I soon got used to
them and they kept me laughing all
the time with their tricks.
Once when they came in they had
a little dog with them and'asked us if
we wanted to see Halley's comet.
Then they lit a match. ' I thought
they were setting fire to the dog's tail
but instead they lighted a fire cracker
which was tied to the dog's tail, and
it went off with a bang.   ,
I think,that the elephants were the
best of all. There were three of these
huge animals and it seemed as if the
man in charge could make them do.

to hear them talk for. they looked- so
wise.     ," ■ ,    , „    ".   .'■ '•"'' 7..
One of "them acted as barber, - He
took a small brush in his trunk and

it* on a* grind stone, which he turned
himself.. After that he let oh that he
was shaving his customer and after
It was*'over he wiped the suds off on
a rag.",.  '■'■■,    7   .-
The next thing that they did was to
play,wash day. .Alady had charge of
the work and the-elephant did everything she told, them. One turned the
.wringer while the others took the
clothes as they came out and put
them in the basket.      ,   . *".-

King's Evidence Helps
Judge Wilson, presiding at a special
session of the County Court hore this '
morning, sentenced Roderick Dunlap,
to three months In jall.isentence to run
from date of complicity In a street,
hold-up last March, ana John Kitchener, the other party.In the same crime
to two months.
In the case of Fred and John Belanger, found guilty of complicity in
the Coal Crek holdup last February,
His Honor sentenced Fred Belanger to
six months, dating from the, time of
his arrest, and John Belanger, two
years, to date from the same time.  "
The difference in the length of the
sentences was on account of the fact
that Fred had not participated In the
actual hold-up having only shared Iri
the proceeds, while John was one of
the two. men who was actually concerned In the holding up of the Trites-
Wood men.

The latest development on' the _ "firing line" in Illinois is the apparent willingness of the courts to lend themselves to the wishes of certain operators
in an attempt to destroy the effectiveness of our struggle arid to prevent, if
possible the ultimate-triumph of our
The Decatur Coal Company of Decatur, 111., recently secured an injunct-'
ion against,thc local union officials at
that place, enjoining'them from notifying,tho engineers, firemen, pumpmen
etc., to cease work. This same rom-
pany also secured an injunction
against the engineers at their mine,
preventing them from quitting work,
Under the terms of this injunction it,
is either keep on working or go lo jail,
for contempt of court. ' Think oi it
—ln this so-called free America—. and
you can't leave the employment of
your master, when your fellow workers are out on strike, without violating
tho law and facing a term in 'jail. Tlio
reasoning of this court is in exact
accord with the decisions handed'down
.by other courts, - i.e. that property
rights are .'superior to..the rights of
man, and it little becomes the dignity
of a learned judge to concern himself
with the struggle of 70,000 organized
mine workers for-improved wages and
conditions of employment.
The rights,'of the privileged few,
who furnish the "jack pots", debauch
the legislatures, own the courts, the
mines, tho mills ana the factories are
moro to be .considered than the protection of the rights and liberties of .the'
working class. '* ,„
And the sad part about ifall i'sUiat

had shirked or. evaded this responsibility they would have*been totally unfit to legislate for the miners .of Illinois.
Certain breweries and saloons seem
to be unduly agitated because this system of paying out commissary is part''
of the district law. This system adopted prevents any.of the organization's
money from going over the bar. It
must go Into the homes of the men on
strike.-It must be used in a way that
will do most good and provide for the
greatest number, and above all to protect the wives and children' of those
on strike who are as a rule the greatest sufferers in times of .strikes. , A
certain brewery in Springfield contributed $25 toa.so-called special committee to assist in getting,a' special
convention called In order, to have the
commissary, law repealed.. NTot only
that but certain saltons In' Springfield
donated to the same cause.' Wo have
their 'names and also the amount of
the money contributed by them to this
committee for that purpose.. We won-
der.-why certain breweries and saloons
are so.,solicitous about ,the method adopted by the organization in paying
out commissary iu providing that it be
spent,for the .necessaries' of life„and
hot"for "booze...
Let,them'answer the question; further-comment'is unnecessary. ."The
mine' workers of Illinois are fighting
for principle, for improved wages and
conditions of employment, and the
above mentioned agencies will not be
permitted to divert in any wiiy Ihe'al-
tention of our members from this,and
other real jssuas confronting the Illi-
'nois organization at this tiiue. It is
well that these matters be brought to
the attention of all who are interested
in the struggle we are making, sothat

It Is everywhere believed that he
would make tho strongest candidate
nnd that--the chances of his carrying
tho Socialist banner to victory are
very good.

to secure a speaker, who Will lie well

».•■■"■.*■--,     Official   Report-Number of
Injured oh the Move
WASHINGTON, Juno 27—The statistics of coal mining casualties, in
' the United' States, compiled by the
Geological Survey, for the calendar
year 1909, show an apparent falling
, off in casualties during the year, but
since the special bulletin on .the subject; made public today, states that no
account is taken of tho year's greatest disaster, that at Cherry, iiii, lii Nei-
vember last, the facts are that lt'09
was exceeded only hy 1907 as one of
heavy catastrophes.
Tho report explains that the toll of
the    Cherry -■ mine  disaster  Is    not
n. counted in with' the figures of the year
|\    ..     because,, it, was "not reported by the
■'Illinois'officials until the close'of the
„ fiscal year in J uiie.-, •*.■."_
Tho government, depends1 for its in-
1*^..    • formation in all but four states on
■the reports of the local ]officials,' and
although last year foui;" more states
.—Georgia, Oregon, Texas and Virginia
—were added-to'the figures through
„ reports received, from llio'operators;
the returns are still far from complete,
a situation which will-be relieved,' the.
,  report„points out, when theaiewly-es-
tahlishcd bureau of mines is completely organized.';   *
?   . '■   ,.   Total .2805 Deaths
, Last year',., leaving out the" Cherry
.mine'disaster^ -In whicli 393 miners'
,• and rescuers * were burned to death,
■"or suffocated, there were 2412 deaths
.*> from coal mine accidents-^-against. 2,-

most disastrous-, year _Jn; tlie -mining

.-','   This disaster-brings the total'up" to
2805,for"tlio'year". 1909. " *   ".-:•-,"'
•**■ -In   making * comparisons  with"pre-
,'yious years however, the-government
"officials    point out-'that in the* four
states not previously reporting    last
-year's'fatalities numbered'34.
.- The    list of, injured in last "year's
■ mining operations makes,-a new- rec-'
,-ord, the total of 7979 'reported -being

ii :
Increase in the lists of injured.i_ more
apparent than real,-and is due" the re-
.port-says, to the increased number.of
states. that are 'now' included in the
figures of-the'report'. , In 1907, for. m-
■>stance, there-were only-17 states re-,
porting while In 1909 there'"-'were
26.-'        -'■ ,7      >'"- 7 *."
'-'" Pennsylvanias Slaughter   •
.-It is to be noted that in'the anthracite   mines-,of Pennsylvania .the
■number* of --non-fatal accidents has decreased from 13G9 in 1907 to 1170 in
1908," and to 1034 in 1909, while those
in bituminous mines have Increased
from 3947 in 1907 to 5602 in 1908 and
to 0945 In .1909.,,    .        '-'-._
These figure's are signlcicant, and
taken in connection; with the' fewer
number of fatal accidents require
some other' explanation than" the more
complete returns ■ of the' last two
years, particularly as the less complete .reports for the earlier year, included* returns from all the .large producing states. , '
Tho statistics v-f the production arid
of the number of men employed" reported to the mine inspectors are as
yet available for only a few states,
and it is not possible at this time to
make comparisons 'of thc death rate
per "thousand* of employes, nor. of the
tonnage mined for each of the lives
lost.      'y. '    ~    .    ■        ' •   • -
From1 the statistics of production in
some of the .more important states, as
reported, by the ,state'officials; it - is
estimated'.than tho total output in-*1909
was, approximately '450,000,000'short
tons, as against 416,000;000 tons in
1908.     - -■   .'   '

, • „ Tons- and Lives
■According to .'this estimate" the-production of, coal in 1909 was 186,567
short tons for each life lost, 'against
167,545 tons.in 1908. In 1907," when
3125 men wero killed, n .145,471' tons
wero mined for each life lost. This
was the year' in which was made the
darkest record in-the "history of'the
industry. During December 1907, there
was an epidemic of coal; mine explos-
ions,*"U)e' echoes, from, one hardly, having died away before another occurred. Fortunately although" dtsasters of
this kind -have occurred all-:, too frequently during the last.two'years, the
black record of 1907 has'not'beon repeated, and commendable efforts .'are
being.made throughout the coal mining region to lessen . the hazardous
character, of the,, mine-workers employment. \ j, *0|- ,' '',";"* « ,-.

;-. 5 .-'- The; Greatest Danger 7 .
The "greatest danger to-which the
miner,is.exposed is that"' from falls
of roof and coal,% and-this datiger is
materially increased, from the weakening'of the roof "and the shattering
of'the coal left as supporting pillars
when excessive charges of powder are
used. In 1909 out of the 2412 men
killed 119i or 45 per cent, '.'.-ere victims of falls of roof or coal, and .of
the 7797 non-fatal injuries 3280, or
40'per cent were due to this cause.- '
■ Only 14.per cent of the deaths and
less than 5 per' cent^of the .injuries
were due; to explosions'of dust or gas;
or combinations of the two. As indicating the relatively more fatal character of explosions' as compared with
other'causes of coal mine accidents it
is to-be,-noted that in the explosions
that.occurred last year 341 were killed
were killed and 3875 injured. '-.*
In the accidents due to windy ■ or
blown out„shbts and""to .explosions of
powder' or dynamite, .108 .were killed
arid 217 injured.
Falls of coal and roof killed 1191
and injured' 3280, while in the accidents due to miscellaneous causes 759
were Hied and 3875, injured.

killed'and 179" injured, from fall's of
roof and coal, ;1080 * killed,' and 2591

Taft; Defies the Laboring
Glass-Unions Under
•" Sherman Act
., WASHINGTON, .lime 2S—The action
of the House of Representatives late
yesterday in, receding from ihe Hughes
labor amendment to the Sundry Civil
bill riiarked the successful termination
.of an all day fight by President Taft
against what he termed class legislation of an improper sort, and apparently removed the last real obstacle in
the way of, an adjournment of congress within the next few' days?
President Taft spent the entire day
arid bent every energy toward the defeat ; of the house amendment which
proposed to exempt labor unions from
tiie ', operation*. of ■ the Sherman antitrust law. " He threw his .whole influ**
ence into the fight, sending for several
scores of-representatives and urging
upon them the necessity of defeating
the provision. * ,
Mr.' Taft declared that if it cost him
the support of. every laboring man in
the country he:.would not' approve of
such a provision. The1 laboring man,
he believed, asked for only * equality
before the law',' and was not entitled
tp more.       .      ..- .

grani was in.response to a, message of

This crime * is the most atrocious
that was ever committed in the annals
of Westmoreland county. Brother Chocken was one of the many thousand'

field are conducting against the coal
Thursday morning, May 2G, in the
peaceful little mining .village of Du-
quesne, Brother Chocken and his little
seven year old son started across the
fields for. a walk and to enjoy the beautiful sunshine and fresh air that God
had given them as this is about all
that t}>e coal companies in Westmoreland county allow the miners to" enjoy-     -
While walking along ho-was attack-
ek by some of the state constabulary
and was driven into a small coal shed
with his little boy. Here while he
begged for mercy and this mere child
begged that his father might be spared
this awful crime was committed.
Frank Crow, who was superintendent at the Deery mine appeared upon
tho scene just in time to commit an
act that has no parallel in the annals
of crime.
' Whilo the state constables were in
the act of beatingChocken and his little son was pleading for mercy this
man. deliberately shot hhn through the
small opening where the coal wasput
into the shed.

its awful results; picture a .little boy
pleading for his father's life; picture

his father might be killed. Was ever

During the ceremonies attendant<upon the interment
' of the late King Edward there developed a situation
calling for the highest type of tact and diplomacy. Seven
monarchs had left thoir respective kingdoms for the purpose of paying duo homage to their friend and counsellor, but how to place them In line without hurting
their delicate sensibilities was a puzzle that called for a
knowledge of which those who have chargo of such weighty matters found themselves decidedly lacking. After
much scratching of heads, consultation, of previous reports of burials of sc/ereigiis there was nothing discovered to act as a precedent, consequently they, still pondered over, the pros and cons of the dilemma, yet while
the call of seniority was in favor of one, thero were the
closer ties of relationship to'he taken into consideration.
Finally when at the end of   their wits as to what
-i • "**
course to pursue it was decided to submit the problem to
King George V., who, with the wisdom of Caliph of Bagdad, severed the-Gordian knot by deciding that William
II, King of Prussia, and Emperor of the German Empire,
, and Wurttemberg, should occupy first rank in the.regal
procession.        -       ,       *•
i There is perhaps at the present time' no question
that has been more prominently brought to public "notice
than that'of the Women Suffrage movement, in fact not
only has.it affected the European countries, but has invaded some of the Oriental ones too.     Various planks
have been put forward by this feminist movement, still
we do not think they could champion a bolder and more
important measure than the advocacy of William II as
India, etc.    Thus he could occupy the dual* position of
Kaiser and ;King. . Many no doubt lose sight of tho fact
'> : V
thatlf the eldest child of theeldest child were the direct
heir presumptive then "It is certainly just that these two
'■■ *!' . : *"**i ■ ,■ ■ i   ii,,,-    'i*.      ., "
crowns should be. on.tho ,o;ie head, and* that thus? wo
would have tho eldest son of "Frederick III and Empress
Victoria, the occupant of Sandringlmm, because,this lady
was,the eldest child of Queen Victoria, and mJde her
debut on life's stage In 1840, over eleven months before
King Edward was Horn,
. " Probably the objection might be made that It would
"deprive King Georgo of the ■ opportunity to display his
kingcraft, still from somo of the newspaper accounts,
hols said to bo shy and-reserved, and If left to hlmsolf
would prefer a lifo on tho ocean wave; thereforo, why
not follow, the prevailing custom, Institute a merger nnd
by so doing eliminate tho.waste energy Incident to keeping up two establishments? So far as precedent la con-
corned, thero aro mnny, and because of cortaln methods
bolng adopted wo lmvo tho Legitimists, tho Bourbons,

a menace aiid a nuisance, and'the services "of the city

to* place this victim ■ of the hotels under control at the

The reprehensible practice of plying a man with intoxicants just so long as he has the money to pay for
them,, and then when he has either exhausted his. funds
or out raged .--nature robs'the drinker of his'reason, Society in the shape of city officials steps in and he becomes
a ward of the people. *'
If a man striko another and does bodily injury he is
responsible therefor, then why should not they who by
their wares rob a main of his reason and inflict such agony,
as the victim of delirium tremens suffers be permitted to
go scot free, and the care and attention necessary in order to clothe the aberrated man in his right mind be at
the expense of othors? This is. not as it'should be, and
when such conditions arise the public ought to be apprised, then if they wish that steps be taken to remedy
so deplorable a state of affairs they-cannot offer the
excuse that they were. ignorant of them.

In consequence of the Influx of some negroes Into
Northern Alberta an attempt; which deserves to die in
the borning, is being made by some naturalized Americans to stir up strife' by conjuring up a negro problem.
Canada: has a large population of these sons and daughters of Ham, whose conduct land demeanor as citizens
compare favorably with' the white population based on
the- statistics published. In the West there is not so
large a percentage as in the East, where many of those
reside who escaped in the "Underground Railway," at
the time of the separation bptween the North and the
South. . Every mulato, quadroon, octoroon, shows mis-
cegnaticn, of -which the onus of responsibility is overwhelmingly upon the^ white progenitor. The common
sense of, the people of Canada will dictate to them the
measures necessary to take in the event of any -transgression of the law and this, without advice from those
who are compelled to acknowledge their inability to cope
with the negro problem, and despite the severe punishment that has been visited upon the black race charged
with infractions they are no nearer a solution.
sive of independence, and not,, infrequently when legal
actions are taken by a Company or an individual-against
_ny- of its* or his employees counsel will lay great stress
upon the "attempt at interference with the liberty of the
individual." . Tp any who will give thjs subject a little!
consideration, the fact is quite evident that the strongest
supporters of the principles of unionism are the professional nien themselves. -       ... „ ■
, True they do not call their organizations "by such
pleblan names as "Unions," but as a "rose by any other
name would smell as sweet," ln like manner the title does
no't In tho least alter the basic truth. Thero are Dental
Associations, Bar Associations, Medical Councils, .which
aro as determined upon the "closed shop" as any of the
workingmen's'bodios. Attempts hnvo been mado by
somo of the moro advanced members of tho professional
societies to onlarge tho scopo, or ln othor words, Instead
of tho autonomous bodies causing lnconvonlonco bocause
6i tho limitations set, havo them dovclop moro along the
lines of Industrialism, I.e., that ln lieu of tho Provincial
Board placing restrictions upon thoso from othor.-provinces practising, thnt a cortlflcato of proflcloncy obtained
lu one part bf tho Dominion should entitle Its holder to
all tho prlvllogos onjoyod by thoso who aro rosldonts.
Tho objection to this has boon that possibly tho examinations may bo of a loss thorough character ln one
pnrt of the Dominion than in another, so In ordor to over-
como this tho Canadlnn Medical Association at a rocont
mooting ln Toronto brought up tho Quostion of oxnmlna-
tions bolng mndo which If passed would ontltlo tho hold-

If the typesetters of the western

nothing compared with those of the
Japanese composing room.

tho Chinese, employ,, a written, language—wliat might be called a literary
ellaloct— that' "is quite different from
the colloquial tongue.- In other words
they do not, ns wo do, write ns ■• they
speak. Tills proceeding requires tho
printing of their journals In two languages, tho "Knna," and the Bquaro
characters serving as a key to the
othors. Theso squnro characters aro

Tuesday the 21st, between 11 and 12
o'clock in the forenoon, which resulted
iri the death of Alex. Wilson, a Scotch
miner aged 40 years, who .was just
recently out from the Old Country..
Deceased was engaged taking out
pillars at the time, when a slab of
rock, known to the miners as a "nigger
head" fell from the roof, breaking the
man's neck.
The Inquest was held on.Wednesday,
Coroner Thompson of Banff officiating. The jury returned a verdict of
accidental death.'
Deceased leaves a wife and three
children in the old country to mourn
his loss. He hailed from tho same
locality • as the Scotchman that met
his death here on Easter Monday, lh
fact he was sympathising with tho widow of the late William Clerk before
setting out for this country. The de-,

Re Fernie District Fire Relief Fund
Dear Sir: '" *
The Comniitf.ee of the Fernie District Fire Relief Fund-have placed in
my.hands for collection two accounts
against** you. . *' * ■
, You originally borrowed from the
fund tho sum of-$376.20, .and this
amount was subsequently reduced to
$94v05, which sum you agreed to pay
back at" the rate of $2.00 per month,
but which payments are now considerably In arrears. ,'■„.'
I am also Instructed to collect from
you the sura of-$10.05, being amount
Lumber-Company on your behalf, and
which you promised to repay'to the
Committee at $1 per month. *>-s*,
The committee, however, are prepared not .to press you for these arrears,
providing that you pay on or.before
the 20th instant, the sum of $3.00, and
thereafter the sum of $3 on the day
following tlie Coal Company's pay day
each month..
If you make'these payments.tome
promptly, *■ ybu will' not, be -.asked to
make'payment'of the arrears', in one
lump' sumy but'unless payment is made
as outlined above my instructions are
to. at once' take ,procee-llngs against
you to recover the", amount then due.
Kindly give this matter your iinme-
diate attention- and oblige, -
„   Yours ti;uly

high then I will retract. But'untU
they can it \vill be my endeavor to
have the grade changed. Not speaking
of the streets, but take personal property, what amount of money will it
take from' the ratepayers to fill in
their lots, and now. that the principal
buildings are erected, and basements
excavated, where is the fill to be obtained? I suppose from Mt. Fernie. I
do, not blame the' mayor or council
that held office at the time of the fire
but I blame the city officials responsible for this branch of the city business.
' Of course we will be told that the
city engineer had more to do thstn he
could look after at the time.
Now, Mr. Editor, I think every person will agree that a lawn sloping
from.'the entrance of a house to the
sidewalk with a'ten pr fifteen per cent
grade looks better than the reverse,
not taking intV consideration that in
many cases steps "must be mounted before' access to** the sidewalk can be
gained. Again how many lots in this
city are not below the sidewalk—yes,*
feet. In front of my own door I have
taken an approximate measure of the
block and the amount of fill required
is 1000 yards, which if hauled will'cost
at least 50 cents per yard or $500.*Tak-
ing into consideration that there are
at least fifty such' places in the city
to receive attention, and that the fill
must be hauled, amounts' to $25,000;
then another $25,000 can bo'added for
filling lots.
Too bad, too bad;  we cannot look
ahead any further 'than our nose.
Some one is responsible for this
state of affairs, and the citizens interested should demand an explanation. Good streets, pretty lawns and
nicely painted ,buildings are. an attractive value for any city. Sooner or
later we must face, the question of pav-
j ing the strets; 'now is.the time to face
lhe question, fairly and squarely and
remedy the evils* that be. ...
