we would respectfully urge that a revision of tho allowances be made.
Ills Lordship replying to the grand
jury stated that he was very pleased
that they had visited these institutions
and public buildings, and would say
that the recommendations should be
brought to the attention of the authorities and he had no doubt that they
would be carried out. He would, particularly draw the attention of the authorities to the establishment of a provincial jail for east Kootenay. -.lie

Regarding the Recent
The strike of the Nova Scotia'miners, which has been continued since
tho 6tti of July last, has been settled
on terms which are favorable to the
strikers. \ . '
The following telegram from ex*.
Vice President MeCullough was received at the office Thursday of last, week,
conveying the glad tidings.   -
"Glace Bay, N. S.', April 28, lfllO.
,  "Reached favorable    settlement today.     Will be compelled to remain a
week yet.     • '       , -   .,
' And thus it, has been again demon-
strted that a war waged against the
United Mine Workers of'America is a
profitless thing. 1      •
.The company and the men are to be
congratulated on the amicable agreement It will not be wise or politic to
gloat over the success of the miners.
Everything that can be "done should
be done now to promote and foster a
more friendly relation, without which
the best results to-both can not be
secured. *
The striking miners are deserving of
all praise for their persistent fight
for, recognition and the principles that
all'free men fight for. .-*.--.
It is a happy ending to a great
struggle and a crushing blow to Moffat and his cohorts who deceived the
Dominion Coal Company at the start
have deceived them ever since' and
got them into ,a fight that has been
ruinous lo their financial interests.
With the settlement-it is hoped ah
era of good will will be developed,
and the sun of peace' shine in the
^mining industry,-,of-/Nova Scotia, and
the "United Mine Workers will prosper and continue to - bring aid and
succor to,the oppressed.' ■   ■"      -L_

The following affidavit is self explanatory: ,
State of Pennsylvania:
County of Westmoreland.
Personally appeared before me the
subscriber, a.Xotary Public, Fred
Jones of Pittsburg. Pa., who being duly
sworn in due form of law did depose
and say that, he was one of the deputy
sheriffs of the Irwin coal field under
' orders from J. J.  Sweeney of Pltts-
" burg, Pa., and that on the evening of
March 23, 1910, and that'he, tho said
Fred .lones, J. .1. Sweeney and several
deputies met In room 32 in the Uruns;
wick hotel of Irwin, Pa., and heard the
said J. J. Sweeney give orders to the
several deputies that they .were to
break up the meeting of the miners to
. be held in the Liederkranz Hall of-Irwin, Pa., regardless of consequences
and that one of the men whose name
is unknown to said Fred Jones was to
start a disturbance on the street near
the hall and if he was not successful
he was to go into said' Liederkranz
hall and start a disturbance tliere, and
that thc said deputy did make an assault upon James Armstrong and Jno.
McCartney and-that they were roughly handled by the several deputies, 18
in number, and said J. J. Sweeney.
In witness whereof the said Fred
Jones has hereunto set his hand and
seal' this 30th day of April 1910. '.

Workers: *>    ' •
Since last reporting on the general
situation contracts' have, been agreed
to in Western Pennsylvania, as well as
iri District 11, Indiana.
The agreements reached in Districts
5 and 11 are very satisfactory to our'
membership, and everything is running along as smoothly as -can be expected.
- Contracts have now been negotiated
and signed up in .Central and Western
Pennsylvania. Ohio and both districts
of Indiana, as well as the Kanawha
District of West Virginia and District
23, Kentucky.
In Kentucky and the Kanawha District of West Virginia the operators
and miners are getting' along very
nicely with every prospect,of the organization growing and a better understanding between tho -- operators'
representatives and the representatives of the United Mine Workers.
There is very good prospect, for settlements in Michigan nnd Iow'aa within
the next few days. This is especially
true of Iowa.
- Illinois operators nnd miners are going to meet in Joint Convention in Peoria, 111., on Tuesday, May 10, and it is
hoped that they will be able to get
together!   .'
There is no change in the situation
in the* Southwest except that an effort
is being made to bring about a conference that will be productive of some
tangible results.
There is a Joint Conference at Forth1

There is practically no change in the
situation in Colorado, but an effort is
being made to re-open negotiations for

In all those Districts where contracts
have been negotiated, every effort
should be made by our members to
co-operate with the officers,of the district to have the mines operated under
the terms of the  contract.
In those districts where   contracts
have not been negotiated and signed
up, our members should lend every effort within <-.their' power * to strengthen

and a nine hour day. The men claim
that it was understood in January that
they were to'get 271/*, cents per hour
for j-sewer work, hence the strike to
bring the city to time in regard to this
understanding. There was a murmur
that tho men would be liable under the
Investigation Disputes Act, but if tho
men's contention is right there is little
lo bring this side of the-question up,
The city officials are trying to fill the
places of the strikers with other men.
Comparing the work done by these
men to work done by men in oxcavat-
ing for buildings, the work ought to be
as well paid for as the other. Twenty-
seven and one half cents an hour Is
the rato paid to men. excavating for
basement and it is a far easier job
than the sewers. The satisfactory
state of the streets since the' cily had
the work done by hand labor is proof
that the men work hard and faithfully
and should receive, as good money if
not better* than is received for other
excavating work.

they were received last season: They
haveL.won a name for themselves which

companies that the public of this
country has ever heard. Fax is in
himself a host, and with the talented
artists who surround him a treat of
no mean order is in store for'our citizens. As a character ' delineator,
Jimmy Fax has porhaps no equal on
the concert stage today. His humorous impersonations have caused thousands to laugh and be merry and, a

Don't Sigh and Regret—Do Something
We often look back. and.think to ourselves that
had our foresight been as good as our hindsight, we
would liave done differently. This looking back to
disappointments that havo passed is particularly interesting in connection with the California oil fields.

Crude oil at the present market price is being purchased from the producer at sixty three cents per barrel at the well. Mr. Aubrey, California State Mineralogist, states that oil at $1 per barrel is cheaper fuel
than coal. ' Two and a half barrels of oil are equal to
as fuel a ton of coal, so that quantity of oil at a dollar
a barrel or $2.50 is the equal of a ton of coal at $8.
Taking the'federal geologists' figures as a basis for
calculation, tliere is at present in the Coalinga District
oil worth $2,000,000,000. The great Comstock mines
produced only $645,000,000.
The Property of The Coalinga Eureka
Oil Co. Close to Great Gusher Well
The holdings of the Coalinga Eureka Oil Company
consists of eighty acres, situated in Section 24, Township 21 South, Range'14, East, Fresno County, California, separated by only two.sections from the famous
Section 6, the home of the great '' Silver Tip'' gusher,
and of the Lucile, Amy, Pacific States Oil Companies,
etc., all of whom rank foremost among the big producers of=this great field. Section 18, adjoining the Coalinga Eureka property is the scene of unequalled activity. Derricks have been built, tools hauled* out, and
drilling operations are being carried on with relentless
energy. It is the undoubted opinion of experts and
to produce some of the most remarkable wells in the
Coalinga field. E. "W. Preston,'probably the best expert in the whole of the Coalinga field, and superintendent of, the Consolidated Oil Company (which adjoins our Coalinga-Eureka property) and also General.
Manager, of'the *New York Coalinga and Aladdin Oil
Companies (all producing) writes regarding the property of the Coalinga Eureka Oil Company: -       *■
"You ask me to give you an expert report on your
" land in Sections 24, 21 and 14, I have just returned
" from a very careful examination of the,property.
" You have the same identical formation that has made
" the entire West side of the Coalinga field famous'.
" You are sure to get good wells'at medium depth.
" This property adjoins our property and I have been
" trying to purchase this samo tract. While I regret
" that we were unable to procure it, I cannot refrain
" from congratulating you on securing such a desirable
" piece of oil land. It means success to your Com*.
" pany," ■
Plans of The Company
It is tho plan of the Company to drill and complete
at least four wells during tho present year, These wells,
according to tho output of wells on adjacent propocrty,
should havo nn average yield of 400 barrels por well,
or 1600 barrels per day, 48,000 barrels per month, which
would enable tho Company to pay DIVIDENDS TO
PER MONTH besides holding in reserve a large sum of
money for fnrthor development,
Stock and Disposition of Funds
To complete thoir first well tho Company is placing
on tho mnrkot n block of 50,000 shares of Treasury

Papers We Have Known
Local Merchant's No Mean Collection
(Calgary Albertan)
Whicli is the most important newspaper in the kingdom? Ninety-nine
people out of a hundred would probably say The Times. But.they would
be wrong, that is, if one may judge the
importance of a newspaper, by the official character of its news, says a
London exchange.
The title really belongs to the London Gazette; the oldest and least read
of any newspaper in the country. It
is issued by the government,'and is
the channel of communication between
royalty,. the cabinet-and the "people.
Kings and queens have written for it,
while cabinet ministers are regular
contributors. Its advertisements are
regulated by Jaw, and no great manufacturer could obtain a "puff" even
although he were willing to pay £10,-
000 a line for it.
The Gazette varies considerably iu
size.' Sometimes it consists merely of
one page and sometimes between 400
and 500. In one memorable week, in
1S47—tho Railway Yoar—so many parliamentary notices had to be published
that the Gazette for one week totalled
about '3000 pages; but 'the price remains the same, namely Is, and it is
said to yield a profit of about £20,000
a year, in spite of the fact that it has
never been sold at a railway bookstall
and no newsboy, has ever cried Its
name on the street. Practically the
only people who buy it are government
officials and lawyers.
The Gazette is the oldest and at
the same time the youngest paper5 in
the kingdom, as well as being the most
Important. It was published in the
reign of Charles II,, and has ever since
appeared twice a week, with supplementary issues now and then if required. It was first published at Oxford, as court was in residence there
during the .plague, but when the latter
abated it was brought, to London, and
for more than 130 years has been published by Messrs. Harrison, the well-
known printers of St, Martin's Lane.
At the same time it is \the youngest
newspaper for the reason thai only a
few weeks ago it contained the foi-1
lowing announcement:   „
"This journal has been registered at
the d'.' P. 0. for transmission by inland post as a newspaper." ' .,
' Previously it had been* regarded as
a government publication only, and
was dispatched "O. H. M. S." iri this
way escaping postal * charges alto-
letlier";- Mf~appafently
. Long ago before the advent of the'
telegraph and special editions, the Gazette officers were besieged by anxious crowds, who had no other channel from which to learn the news.
An interesting illustration of the im-'
portant position held   by the Gazette
before newspapers,   and    telegraphs   '
were,   what they,,*-are is furnished by
the manner in which the news of the
battle of the Alma was made public *
in 1851.     The news was received by
the secretary of state late on Saturday
evening.     There were no newspapers
until  Sunday,   and   it  was  Important^
that the public anxiety should be allay- *■
ed by the widest possible circulation
of such a piece of news. •■
Mr. James Harrison was sent for,
and the position explained to him
'Mien he reached Downing street. Ho
immediately thought of the .theatres.
There were three or four of thein open
then; why not have the.-telegram read
out there? The plan was considered
excellent and Mr. Harrison returned
to St, Martins Lane and set up tho
news with his own hands, and sent
men around to the theatres with early
copies o fthe Gazette. "See the manager," were ■ the instructions to the
messengers. "Take no refusal. Insist upon having the performance at
once stopped by order of the secretary
of state, while the news is read out."
The men obeyed their orders to the let-.
ter and at Drury Lane and other theatres the scenes were historic. In the '
meantime Mr. Harrison made his way
to the Mansion House and communicated the glad tidings to,the Lord Mayor and sheriffs."

The question of the cost oMlvIng Is aa ever-present
subject for discussion, a theme upon which the newsmonger can dilate ad infinitum,'whilst to the housewife
of moderate or very limited means It is a vexatious problem equalling in difficulty the riddle of the Sphinx.  "
Under the caption of "The, Problem of Existence,"'
the June issue of the "Cosmopolitan" reproduces a symposium from the pens bf various well known writers,
financiers and business men of the United States who
contribute'expressions of opinion which, although diverse
and in some cases widely different, are exceedingly, interesting. .Every utterance can be readily traced as proceeding from tlieir econimic environment whereby,,the
student of the "dismal science" has his convictions still
more firmly clinched that the materialistic conception of
history is on a; foundation that is well and   truly laid. .
Charles Ed. Russell, whose article is the first of the
series, states that although the sum total of wealth has
attained fabulous proportions that the tendency has been
and still' continues to be towards a closer restriction,
"hence in point of■ relationship eachdecade sees the percentage of wealth .holders in direct disproportion num-
crically to the amounts in bulk of each class, i. e. The percentage of increase of rich people is in striking disparity
to the percentage of Increase bf poor people.
One important fact Mr. Russell calls attention to is
made but throughout the entire world, consequently the
■ inference is that the cause also is world-wide.     The reason for the changes according to his opinion aro two.
' 1: The single monetary standard; gold.
,2: Thc excessive inflation of railroad stocks. , Total
capitalization ln„United States is over.. 18 billion dollars,
an Increase of six billions in the last seven years. Nine
billons ($0,000,000,000 aro fictitious,) Tables showing gold
output and prico variations, also railroad capitalization
and profits are furnished, whicli to the compiler of statistics are exceedingly interesting,,     ,*,.
The next contributor is Frank Greene, managing, editor of Brndstrcet's Journal. The dominant tone noticeable is negativity, but ascribes as n reason the universally
improved standards of living.
This Is only partially truo and not applicable to. the
great mass who are included In tho categories "poor"

/Lorton Horton claims the shortage in production of
cereals is the trouble.. James J. Hill, the Great Northern
professor of Agronomics,, elaborates at some length on
the necessity for putting a stop to waste. There are
numerous others whose deductions are decidedly interesting,    y '.''*- v   •
John Mitchell, the ex-President of the U. M. W. of
A., defends the position, of the labor organizations from
the blame which some try to throw upon them as being
the principal factors in the creation of the increase) and
avers that "the proportion of our population engaged in
the production of wealth grows' steadily, less, while the
proportion of our population engaged in the distribution
and consumption of wealth grows steadily greater."
John Spargo, the well known Socialist author of several interesting works, "The Ditter Cry of the Children,"
"Capital and Labor," etc.,,commences,his article by allusion to "the' secondary exploitation of the producers."
This may be a phrase which affords excellent material
for '.'academicism" but for an illustration of its soundness
consider the story told of a German surgeon as a corollary. An officer was found with 5 bullet wounds in him
and after the examination the medical Solon in making
out his report stated "one bullet had passed through the
aorta, another had severed the carotid, but the other
three were not necessarily fatal."    >In other words if it
i i '
were not for primary exploitation, there could be,no "sec-
ontiary," and it is unfortunate that those who, are considered teachers should wander off into the direction of
confusion. Accepting the theory as sound that labor's
application' to natural resources produces all exchange
values,,hence to the producer it naturally belongs, why
waste mental ,'energy clouding the issue by discussing
"secondary exploitation?" *     '
If'the baker (ptherwise the producing class) are entitled to the entire bakery, viz.; the full value of their
product, how can there be any surplus value to be expropriated, and-if there be*no expropriation does it not
dispose' of all exploitations, primary, secondary or tertiary?
There is another explanation that may be brought,
forward, and that is through the utilization of improved
machinery both-productively and distributive^ whereby'
the productivity of the* unit is immeasurably increased,
the-concomitant result .necessarily ensues of an ever
increasing widening between the money wages paid to
the producer and the money value of his production, and
while nominally wages may be increased, still in order-to
be' on an even basis with the enhanced cost of living,
as per the table of Prof. J. Pease Norton, the percentage
should be practically 40 per cent to all workers. -,       ,.,
'.This would not bring,the solution one jot nearer, and

. Born:. At Coal*Creek- on the 17th
inst., to Mr.. and Mrs. J. Lyons, a
fine son.
Coal Creek and "Michel: The first
half of the game was pretty evenly
contested, but still at the Interval the
score ' was three' to one in favor of
Michel. Shortly after the second half
had started Clare, the Coal Creek goal
keeper, got in a collision with a Michel
player and had to be taken off. This
put the game to the woods as, one of
the'other players had to take up his
place, and all the chances the Creek
had of catching up were gone. The
game ended 4 to 1 for,Michel. John
Caufield can be* complimented on his
fairness as a referee.
, The excursion, from. Michel to Coal
Creek on the, Great Northern-on Saturday under tlie auspices of the Michel football club was well patronized.
The Michel "--'boosters turned out to
a goodly number. But the men with
the strong lungs and the big yell were
not1 necessary for ,a victory, as tlie
boys had,an_easy win, for at no time
in the game was there any chance of
a loss. The Michel teami seemed to
outclass their opponents "defeating the
Creekers easily by the large score of
4 to 1. The line'up of the teams

Secretary Livett of the Crows Nest
League stopped Mr. Kaye of Hosmer,
who was to act as referee, from coming. Late on Friday night however
they decided to come and under the
circumstances Secretary Livett had to
appoint Mr. D. Stene of Frank to officiate. This did not appear to give
satisfaction to a portion of the players, and.there was some talk of protesting against the referee, for what
reason' it is not known. , The game
had hardly been ln progress two minutes when Varley scored for Bellevue.
However before half time Coleman
equalized. Varley scored two more
In the second half, thus making the
three goals scored against Coleman.
The latter team also scored another
goal and thought they had another.
There was an awful fuss made about
the referee giving a penalty to Bellevue, the referee being one in a hundred to stand for the actions of some
of'the Coleman players. Without going into the merits or demerits of the
incident* it was uncalled for, and the
Coleman players knew perfectly well
that if they were not fairly treated
they could lodge a protest.. The result of the game which ended in ,a
snowstorm was Bellevue 3 and Cole-
man 2. The best team won.' -We

Construction & Inspection
Regulations Agreed Upon Regarding The
Construction and Inspection of Steam Boil-
ers ih B. C, Alberta, Sask., Man, and Ont.
Before commencing work on any boiler to be built under these regulations
three drawings of the samo, with' specification form in duplicate, must be
submitted to the department. for approval of the pressure and .arrangement of the boilers, which must actually comply in all cases with these
regulations and the Act.
This applies also to the designs for-
safety valves'and other fittings. Approval or corrections will promptly he
given or pointed out in thc order as
applications are received by the Department and the manufacturers advised accordingly.
Each drawing must have on it a
complete list of parts of boiler.* with
, identification numbers on lt and the
details shown,, the material and sizes
being given on specifications. To prevent delay ;any manufacturer must
submit for approval designs of manu-
, facturo which, when, finally approved,
will be given registration numbers for
the province and from .which boilers
may be made by that manufacturer in
any number, full reference being, made
to the registration when sworn construction certificates are sent to tho
Department concerning such boilers;
and further provided that no changes
in these regulations shall affect such
design until after twelve months' notice has heen given to the manufacturers of such change, but'any new designs submitted, for approval after
notice of change in regulations has
been .given must be in accordance
with such change.
Three' drawings or blue prints of
each design submitted must accompany an application for,approval, each
haying' a blank or white space on it
„ four by five inches in size; one of
these drawings or prints will be returned to the manufacturer. Changes
in design necessitate submission ' of
same for approval and fresh registration.        ■    .      • ■
On application to the Department,
manufacturers may be given or" allotted a series of identification numbers
.   for construction of their standard ap-
—proved~boilers.. —.
practicable as above, it must be indicated by specification. ~
On vertical boilers on right side of
fire doors.*
For boilers where location is  not
practicable as above,-it must be indicated by specification.
Cylindrical portions of boilers such
as shells or barrels, domes, drums or
reservoirs, shall be made as nearly
as possible truly cylindrical.
All surfaces formed to a true circular curve except surfaces otherwise
provided for shall be calculated in a
similar manner to cylindrical shells,
but when they or other parts are not
made or are parts of true cylinders,
of different radii, they must be treated
as flat surfaces and stayed accordingly and in any case at the" change of
Thickness of  Plates
The minimum thickness of any
plate used iri the construction, of a
boiler under these regulations shall be
»4 of an inch, and in all cases the
thickness of boiler heads having ' a
diameter up to 40 inches shall be not
iess than u-16 inches; diameters from
■10 inches to r'52 inches not .less than
% inches; diameters from 52 inches 10
CO inches not less than 7-1*3, and not
less than 1-16 additional thickness for
every 6 inches additional diameter
for boilers above 60 inches diameter.
The thickness of all plates in shells
or drums shall be alike and that required for the working pressure of any
part according to formula hereafter
given, but must not be less than one-
quarter inch.
The minimum thickness of plates in
stayed surface construction shall be
five-sixteenth of an inch.
Seventy-two'inches shall be the maximum diameter for all externally fired
»     '      Reinforcing Plates t
Por standard water pipe ono ii*.ch' in
diameter, and for standard steam pipes
one  and   one-quarter   inches   to   two
inches in diameter the opening shall
b_e_reinforced with aplate securely
(These regulations are not in force
in any province, and will not be until
issued by the proper officials of such
provinces as decide to adopt them. It
, is hoped that all the provinces will
issue such uniform regulations,,to become effective during the year 1911.
Ontario has passed a boiler-act, and
these regulations shall take effect at
a dato to be published In the. Ontario
Every boiler built under these regulations shall bo stamped on tho plates

■Levitt at Bellevue regarding the making of this particular fly. v He proposes to name it the Nil Desperaii-
Petitions for wholesale and retail licenses are as numerous as leaves in
the autumn. Some months ago Mr.
McDonald of the.Union hotel, Frank,
presented a.petition to the inhabitants
of Bellevue and district in regard to
obtaining a retail* license at the
Southern hotel. It was,signed by a
large number of people. '
It is reported now, that the' license
;- commissioners turned it down. Next
i ii i    i
a Mr. Monaghai: from Fernie presented the petition which was extensively
"Signed. About the same time as the'
last named was getting busy a Mr.
Martin, barrister of Frank, presented
a petition against having another retail license in town. This lawyer liad
the assistance . of the West Canada
Collieries company. Their arguments
were to, the effect that they .did not
think it was necessary to have another
license in town as there was enough
drunkenness already, or enough facilities at any rate for gettiiig drunk.
Your correspondent is not from Mis
' souri, but *he would like to be shown
how an additional license would increase the evil of drinking. The suspicion is as strong as the smell of
' Scotch whiskey that their opposition
was not based upon moral grounds but
from a purely economic standpoint.
And that accounts for the milk in
the cocoanut. V
Last week still another petition, this
time for1 a wholesale license, was pre
sented by Mr, James Serra, a bartender, formerly of Frank and Coleman.
A day or so after the 'above was
signed a sight worthy of the gods was
witnessed. Mr. James Callan had
charge of a petition in favor of* a
wholesale license, same to be owned
by Mr. C. Faure, of Lille, and strange
to relate it was-gladly signed by the
officials of the West Canadian Collieries Co.
,    Morality is evidently elastic.
Mr..B, J, Beach who has' been running a grocery store in - partnership
with1 Mr. J. Raynor, has retired from
the business,, leaving Mr. "Raynor sole
owner. Mr. Beach intends going to
the Old Country.
Mr. Jack Walters who runs the
men's' furnishing store in the McCutcheon block, is building a residence
on the Lille road.
Mr. Steve Rosia, formerly bartender
at the Bellevue hotel has,been award*
ed the contract to, drive a rock .tun-

ed that this tunnel, which by the way
is to be 600'feet long; will expose quite
. a few new seams of coal.
The output at the mine is steadily
increasing. . 1100 tons was dumped
In one shift last week, making over
2000 tons for the day.
An accident occurred in the power
house on Monday when somo pnrt of
the compressor got broke; no one
was hurt,
Tho compnny arc seriously handicapped by not having a lathe at the,
plant. This reacts upon tho workmen also, as whon there is a stoppage
of this kind the chutes become full
