Report of Geological Survey Calls Attention to Fact That All  Except
Gold and Silver Are Nearing Ex- '
haustion, Coal Heading List
As Most Wasted
So many and so conflicting liave
boen the' rumors and reports relative
to the conditions In this eastern coal
camp that the casual reader might be
lead to imagine that rioting and
rowdyism were everyday occurences
and that the town must necessarily
present more the appearance of a'
military camp, knowing by practical
experience that when all other means
have proven useless* the corporations
do not hesitate to spread malicious
reports through the press with the
expectation of damning their opponent's side with a view to creating
prejudice against them in the eyes
of the public much after the style
of tlie lawyer when he has no case to
start badgering . the witness. We
wired to the secretary of Local 469
TJ. M.W. A. at Springhiil, N., S. and
below we append his reply.
Springhiil, N. S.,'July 2S, 1910.
District Ledger, Fernie, B. C:   ■■  ...
The strike situation, remains unchanged. . The ■ position of the miners
is stronger and prospects for a fair
deal * with the company ■ is ^brighter
tonight than at any. time before. The-
wild reports in the press of the controlling . and financial interests are
gross exaggerations well" known to
those who make them. No conditions
have arisen In Springhiil requiring the
presence of soldiers,* Official records
which are. following by mail' show
clearly that' the trouble occurred "in
Springhiil was' made by the imported
■: elements. All that has been and said
''is expressly" to'try to break up the
ranks, and failure to do so has met
* them' on  every  hand.""" The";military
in the aid of,the soldiery, the cost
of which will'  be   saddled upon the
community.   While militia companies
may furnish the material for physical
development to young men at a minimum, of cost to them and when, recruits are    wanted    the    social and
physical advantages of joining are always put prominently forward while
the real obpect of their existence is,
conveniently*evaded.   A captain of a
British Columbia militia having great
difficulty in securing enough recruits
for   his   company   because ' of   the
strenous objections of the local unions
mentioned the circumstances to the
inspecting officer when*he made his
official visit, stating that   the    men
objected   to   join  fearing   that   they
might be called, out: to .ghoot their
fellow  townsmen,  the  reply  of  this
gentleman was certainly halve if not
reassuring, that the-men need have
no^ fear that they would be expected
to be called out for local work in the
event of trouble, but companies from
other towns would be called upon to
do  this work because "thoy had  no
relatives or friends  engaged in  the
strike.   How nice!   In other words'if
there were demands for the militia
say—in Fernie,  call1 would be made
upon Nelson or some other town and
vice versa.1 Those .wlio still entertain
any doubts as to the real object of
the existence of' militia have only to
take Springhiil, N.'S., and Brockville,
Ont., as showing   the    naked, truth.
What thinking man or woman in the
face of these concrete facts can still
maintain that there' Is   . no    CLASS
STRUGGLE? :,.-■-..

In the following striking approximate dates for the disappearance of
some of, the most Indispensable of
■natural mineral resources of the country i the geological survey calls the
attention of the public to a.figurative
Coal, exhausted in 2040,
Petroleum,  exhausted in 1959.
Iron ores, exhausted lh 1939.
Lead ores, exhausted in, Indeterminate.
Gold, exhausted in, indeterminate.
.Copper, exhausted in, indeterminate.
Zinc, exhasted'in, Indeterminate.*'
Phosphates, exhausted in 1934.
The figures havo been taken from
files oi the survey's publications and
a canvass of the situation has been
prepared in a special bulletin. The
chief implied charge ln the work is
that wanton waste has been going on
in the production of many of these
nature's supplies, .and that one of the
first moves in retrenchment should
be more economical methods in mining and distribution.
Coal heads th'e list as the most
wasted of all products, losing ,50 per
cent of the original deposit in the
mining and marketing. The greatest
of these'losses comes from leaving
thin strips of coal in the veins 'and
in thicker strata as pillars supporting the mine roof. But, thousands
more.tons find their way to the slate
and shale dumps, while from the first
movement-in shipping a loss is suf-,
fered through shattering and weathering and haulage, until the, fuel; Is at
the-furnace floor. And even then bad
firing under boilers occasions another
extravagance,' complained of scarcely
less by a general public which protests against the unconsumed gases,
soot and smoke. „
: As the national survey,sees it, however, the' situation as to petroleum is
much more serious. This mineral oil
has been'in use only about 50 years,
while if consumption and waste still
goes on. it will hay_e__d_ls_appeared with-

The above ad is from "The Evening- Telegram." These are needed to

If production be curtailed and the

or vegetable oils.

For some time*, past, various suggestions have been made by coal companies as well as-coal miners regarding the advIsitb"]i'ifc_.,of -consulting the
parties most'affected in acts dealing
with their work. These have practically been crystallized by the,framing of a proposed bill "to the Coal
Mines Regulation Act" and the provincial government commissioned two
of its servants who are enthusiasts
on all that porlalns to their dopartmont, to go through the different
camps and meet, with the representatives of the coal companies and tho
mlno workers for the purpose of discussing with thom tho pros and cons
of this bill.     *

Publicity, of This  Notorious Charge
Moves  Company to Back Up-
Innocent  Man  in Jail
Recently we read in one of our* exchanges' that "It is said that tho
prosecution .contemplate withdrawing
the charge of murder against A. Decoux of'Frank and preferring a less
serious charge against him."   We do
not  know  upon  what  authority  this
item was based or whether it* was a
mere   tentative   expression,  however,
we do know that the unfortunate victim of one of the most arbitrary acts
ever, committed in Canada is at present incarcerated in the., prison at Maeleod  and   although  the  powers   that
be have been communicated with at
Edmonton no definite action has been
taken.   The alacrity shown   by   the
prosecution   in   railroading  this   man
lo gaol is the direct anthesis of the
energy shown by the Alberta government! in instituting an,investigation in
order to ascertain the merits of the
case.    Many  of  these   gentlemen   at'
Edmonton will loudly proclaim on the | ot_Aluel3a
hustings during an, election campaign
of  the  glorious   liberties   guaranteed
under the  aegis of  the Union  Jack,
but if by  your  acts  ye  shall  know
them their reluctance    to  , take any
measures looking towards demonstrating belief in their wordy utterances
is  patent "to all   save, his  hidebound
partisans.   A little less claptrap and,
..more activity would be the best evidence of an intention to square their
words with their  deeds on the part
of these pseudo representatives of the
people.   Don't be alarmed gentlemen,
but the working class to whom .you
are  indebted' for  your political  positions are' slowly coming to a realiza-

Injunction Doesn't
Stop Miners' Prayer
Pennsylvania Strikers Evicted From
Homes and are Forbidden
To March or Picket
GREENSBURG, Pa., July.30.—The
miners in the vicinity of Irwin, Westmoreland county, are on strike for- an
eight-hour workday, recognition of
the union and a check weighman. Thu
operators are willing to concede a
clicck weighman if thc men will permit, them to select him.
The miners do nol accuse the honorable gentlemen who own the mines
of cheating in weight, but-'tis human
to err; overworked weigh masters will
make mistakes or be careless. So the
miners want one of their number to
stand at the scales and check off the
weight of each carload of coal and
ronort to the men blanks furnished
by the union. This checkwoighman
the roiners°will pay themselves.
■* Some of the bitterest battles ever
fought in the coal regions have been
waged over the right to put a man
on thc tipple lo see tho coal weighed.
Operators always claim that thoy nro
not cheating. Maybe they're not. But
if nor, 'why object to the check weighman? '.
A sweeping injuuclioii has boon issued against (he miners by County
, Judge -McConncll, forbidding thom to
inarch on the public highways, forbidding any of* the strikers to walk
past the mines. Whcji0lhe strikers
were evicted from Ihe company's

another movement -would surely make
its appearance, lt would not hesitate
at such destruction as its advocates
believed necessary to the advance of
their / principles. , The successive
moves of the different .branches of
the government having as an object
the suppression of trades unionism
would surely bear their fruits with the
masses. -Iii Milwaukee whatever
other influences , brought about the
results of the election, one important
factor was the vote of protest. The
indignation of tlie man who works and
is being flouted by the courts, neglected by congress, scorned by the attorney general's department and robbed
by the trusts and other ."interests" is
passing beyond" bounds hitherto generally observed. .This man is not going 16 hesitate at* voting under the
name of Socialist, though he may reject Socialism's final principles; he
wants a slap at' the discredited party
machines. He would rather be for a
time with the crowd, that declares it
is .for tho people than with the rings
that have shown themselves to bo the
paid servants of plunderers as well as
traitors to the general welfare."
Mr. Gompers must surely realize,
that capitalism ' controls all the
functions of government.'-" Experience
and observation have taught thoughtful men long ago, that the.legislative,
judicial and executive departments of
government are in tbe .hands of a
class of privilege, and that under
such circumstances, no reasonable
man could expect justice from captains of industry who mint dividends
from industrial oppression.
Mr. Gompers has been arrayed
against Socialism and has hurled his
denunciations against Socialism with
as much indignation a,s the bloated
millionaire, who has piled up his fortune on the sweat, tears and-blood
of ill-paid toil, but regardless of the
protests of Gompers against Socialism
the organization of which ho has been
president for so many years, is _turn-
ing to the doctrines of'-a," party", hat
will 'ultimately bring economic, liberty
to the nations of the world, , *
' Capitalism, with its countless thousands of hire-lings" drawing salaries as
writer's and orators, * are thundering
their protests against the "red
spectre," but the movement -for human liberty is becoming mightier, and
men of hope and courage are now beginning to >see. the 'faint tints of a
coming co-operative commonwealth.

Pertinent  Question Asked by French
Writer—Parents  Have to Pass
the Doctor.
. PARIS, July .'iO.—The question of
Franco's depopulation continues to inspire the pens'of patriotic writers in
tho-French—press:—"Is-a cow-ror—a--
child worth more ■ in Franco?" asks
Clement' Vautel in the. Matin, and in
furnishing the answer he'reveals* a
feature of rural life in France'which
might have been elaborated by a Zola.
Take, he says,, a village .-which he
names,in Auvergno. Fifteen children
have died of diphtheria there within
a short space of time. The village is
M miles from the nearest town where
a doctor is to be had. So tlie doctor
charges $8 a visit,
The peasants are poor; thoy only
cnll the doctor in cases of extreme
urgency, mostly when it Is loo late,
But, suppose a peasant hns a cow
which" he suspects has' got tuberculosis, what happens? x
Ho'glves notico lo tho village burgomaster;, tho latter passes It on to tho
prefect, and tho prefect orders lho
veterinary surgeon of the nearest
(own to examine thonanlmnl. What
doos the peasant have to pny? Not n
cent,, The veterinarian draws his
fixed $6 a visit from the slnto.
Whnt is ovon bettor, If ,tho cow has
lo bo destroyed tho farmer gots a
compensation, sometimes oxcoodlng
lhe value of the boast. "To savo a
diseased cow," tho writer exclaims,
"the official mnchlno works at ■ full
speed. But to savo a French child
not a dollar Is sncrlflced!"

m THE   DISTRICT   LEDGER,   FERNIE,  B. C, JULY 30, 1910.
Pres. lewis reviews
Editor Mine Worked, Journal:..*
For the -benefit' of the readers. of
the  Journal  and  our  membership  I
desire to write a few lines reviewing
the situation as it exists in the different mining districts of the country.
." Several settlements have been made
in the Broadtop    field -of -Central
Pennsylvania by<-Board Member Haggerty and'Organizer-McKay; •
'.- ' The strike is still on In. the Irwin
. district of Pennsylvania.   The details
: have been reported through the columns of  the Journal  from1 time  to
time by those who are bn the ground.
.   There" are over 5;000 men on strike
.in.Ohio in:the Tuscarawas county district and in the'.Crook'sville district.
These men are on strike against reducing the differentials that have existed in those sections.- In the Crooks-
ville* district the differential  in  the
mining,rate over the Hocking district
■■was - secured    after   the    anthracite
. strike, and the differential was conceded  by ,tho  operators  because  of
- the vein being thin and other reasons
which were" oxplalned at that time.
., In Illinois we'still have about 45,000
men' on  strike'and  they have been
■ .idle ever since the lst of "April. •• A
,   conference- was held of the representatives of-the operators and miners of
1 Illinois in Chicago on July 5 and tZ,
but without results. The international
executive board .is now in session' ih
this city, and representatives of the
.Illinois operators and .miners' organization were invited to appear before the international executive board
to explain the'situation    in    Illinois
■from their respective standpoints:
A** commit tee- of five  members  of
.  the,.international executive board has
-been appointed-to meet a'* like committee of the operators of Illinois for
' .'.the -purpose of trying to' find -some
"solution, for their difficulties existing
in District 12. The committees-ara
now at work. '
,- \  We have about 30,000 men on strike
"in Districts 14, 21 , and ' 25,- bettor
known as the Southwest. Those .men
have'.also been idle, since'the. first of
April.   At the present time'both scale
.committees  are  at*-work* in   Kansas
• Cily endeavoring "^ to   'agree ^upon a
proposition which is to be", submitted
Iq the miners' and ■ operators' representatives in joint*, convention.
The  members  of our  organization
- in.Northern "Colorado have also been

.Operators Brings Bloodshed..
number cf. 2,000,' and the effort "to
operate the.mines with* non-union men
in Colorado has not been successful,
It- is to be hoped that a*conference
can.,be arranged, and • in*, the near
future, with a view of tryin'g.to'bring
about a settlement of.** the strike in
that* district. .. -  _ * ' 7"-_ 7 ''
. The miners and operators .of Wyoming met.in Cheyenne'.lastj-week in joint
convention, hut adjourned "without re-
&nlts; to a future date.
. The miners and operators of Washington, . District 10,,'are in ioint convention endeavoring to agree upon* the
terms of a wage contract for that district. It is to be hoped that they will
be able to reach a satisfactory set-
tlcmen pf the questions at issue.,
-It can be said of the men who are
on strike, that- they have conducted
.themselves in a manner that com-
hiands the respect and admiration of
every intelligent, peaceful, law.abiding
citizen, of our- counetry. A strike involving nearly 100,000 men for nearly
four months aiul involving nearly 300,-
000 for, many weeks without any disturbance of any, kind or' character is
something new' in the industrial affairs'* of our country. Usually strikes
of'such a magnitude precipitate friction and disorder, .riot and everything
incident thereto, *
In .the present' strike, operators and
miners 'seem to have' decided that,
regardless of the merits of the' questions at issue,*-.the contest should be
peaceful and lawrabiding in every respect.     - ■" -    .,
It is to- be hoped that a solution of
the present difficulties existing in the
mining industry, will be found' in the
near future and that the industry itself in ail the"-districts where strikes
now'exist will be restored to a normal
condition', in, order tbat the mine
workers may find employment and the
mines be in operation.' --.'*"'
., The ■ International Executive Board,
now in session, will * do ..everything
in' its power to bring about a solution
of tho present ^strikes,• and we hope
that the mine owners, in all of the
districts affected will recognize the
necessity ■' of- co-operating along , lines
that will, re-establish that 'mutual relation that should exist for1 the good
of the industry itself and.the welfare
of all who are directly and-indirectly
dependent upon, mining.    '   *    *•

.PITTSBURG, Pa., July' 30.—Tl_e
struggle in the' Irwin coal fields is assuming.the proportions of a death'
struggle between the strildng miners
and the operators. To the murder of
Putlcr, who. was shot lo death*' last
week by a* drunken sheriff, has been
added a new. outrage of a still more
desperate* character. ■ „•"..
Deputies Act Outrageously.
Three deputies entered the house of
Jacob rCohen, near the' Etna Mine No.'
2, shot and severely-beat Cohen and
injured ms wife and baby.   .'   r;
Tlie number of dead since the
strike "began in; March, reaches a total, of seven, three, of whom are .women. A bitter feeling of resentment
has. been aroused by the cruel treatment'administered by the deputies,
who'are not protecting lives a'nd prop~
erty, but are carrying on a highhanded . orgy of murder and destruction.
Twenty Thousand Men on Strike.
Twenty thousand men are out on
strike in the- Irwin" coal fields and
totally unorganized at the beginning,
are now working in perfect solidarity
and are carrying-on the battle for ah
eight-hour day with determination.
, -The months of enforced idleness are
"being felt in the majority of the.
homes and evictions from the company-houses are of almost daily occurence. Added to .these conditions,
is the constant fear.of the deputies,
who, they .realize, are , the tools of
the employers. '-*.'*'
•   Mass  Meeting  Held.       ''"   -"
A giant mass meeting was held yesterday at* which'thousands of,strikers
gathered in protest: Prominent union
officials addressed the meeting. The
indignation, of the strikers.is keyed
to such a high pitch that a serious
uprising will- take place, unless the
deputies are withdrawn aud the demands of the strikers complied with—
an eight-hour day and the recognition
of the union.   ■ ,      *     *
The union officials are encouraging
the men • to keep up tlieir spirit.
Local President."Feehan, Vice. President Van Bittner^ Michael. Halapy,
Frank B. Barthaldy and George Guzi
addressed the demonstration meeting,
which was held close to the grass-
grown mouth ofthe Jamison Coal and
Coke - company . workings.—Chicago

WASHINGTON, July;30.—An investigation of mine accidents is lo be
started 'at once, according tb an official bulletin issued today by the Department of the Interior",-outlining.thc
policy to bo pursued by lho new bu
reau of mines, created by an act of
the last congress. •
The appropriation made for investl
gallon was 5410,000. The total appro
prlatlon for the bureau was $502,000.

secondary shaft, called a "manway,
saved the lives of many of the 200
men' that were at work In the Hocking Coal mine, near Farmersburg,
when* the top machinery burned late"
today';' Flaming embers fell'into tho
workings of* the main shaft and the
workings soon were filled with smoko.
Sixteen, mules are believed to have
been suffocatod."* When the fire
started at the head of the main shaft,
tho' telephone system was used to order the miners to hurry out by the
mnnway. As tho mon emerged they
were met by an nnxious throng of
their1 womcui folks. The. Inst, to come
out said the smoke hnd pressed them

The . following valuable advice to
young mothers has been copied from
a health chart' issued, by the Board
of Health: * .■   ,7:
.Nurse your baby.' Mother's milk is
the best, of all foods.
Do not „ wean' '.the baby in'hot
weather. ' .       *"-* , ,
Ten' bottle-fed-babies die to one
breast-fed. "' 'y
Nurse _the* baby regularly, -never
oftener than" every two hours during
the' day arid four hours at night.
Do not nurse the'baby every time it
cries. i
If you cannot nurse your baby consult your doctor before giving,it the
bottle. - * .'.",'
Give the baby only good milk, prepared exactly as the doctor directs.
Keep the milk always cold and covered. '       ,
Do not ask your neighbor's advice
about feeding; ask your doctor.
. Clothing—The baby feels the heal
more than you do.
In bote .weather remove most ef the
baby's, clothing. A lose cotton thin
shirt, without sleeves, is enough.
Bathing—Bathe the baby every day.
Wash the baby whenever the diapers, are changed. * -1-.*
In hot weather give the baby a cool
sponge bath several times.a* day.
- Fresh Air—Give .the baby fresh air
day, and night.   • , .■     7
- Keep the-windows open all day and
all night. ' ' '   ' '7
Make,, us of * ferryboats, vacation
schools, 'recreation piers, parks aiid
roofs. '
The baby should sleep alone.
Give tlie baby two or three tea-
spoonfuls of cool -boiled water several times, a day.".
If the baby vomits or has diarrhea
stop all feeding and give cool bdiled
water.. .,"*-"', ,
Food—A child , fishould drink ' as
much milk as-'It can be induced to
take.,  * • ■   \
If you cannot get certified milk, biit
are compelled to give the child plain
dairy or grocery milk,'the milk has to
be pasteurized or boiled. Certified
milk can be given plain; it slioiild be
just heated enough lo take the chill
away.- - "        ;        .
. A chiu should- not get niore than
one egg a day. ' If the child -shows
any tendencies to vomiting or diarrhea only the .white of the egg. should
bo given; in tliat case lhe milk should
be given, diluted ""with boiled water]
But,.as..above mentioned, it is best t3
call your doctor.,or to notify the board

Examination Questions for Cortlfl-

it .is my private opinion that a child
should do without any meat at all.
If-meat Is given, 'none but the following" should receive any" consideration.
Beef—Roast beef,* steak or boiled
chopped meat, .with --a little buttor.
Lamb—Broiled lamb chops, A child
over three can eat roast- leg of, lamb.
■ Poultry—The white part of roasted'
or broiled chicken, .the white pari of
roast turkey or squabs.
; Fish—Any kind, if * care Is tnkon
thai all bones are taken out. All
fish should either be boiled or broiled
never fried.
■ Vegetables—-Thero aro a great variety of vegetables from which you
can choose. But tho first to bo considered,is spinach, as it contains all
the chemicals which the blood needs,
Thon come' asparagus, siring .beans,
green' pciis;'" cauliflower and ' beets,
All .vegetables must be woll cooked,
mashed and.seasbned with a little snlt.
and buttor.  ,
Ceronls—A child should gel cerenl
at lonst' onco dally, as It Is vory nourishing. The following aro to bo preferred: Farina, .hominy, whonlena,
oatmonl, cream of wheat' and rice.
All cereals must bo boiled nt lonst
one hour and n half, but. oatmeal,
hominy and rico should bo boiled nl
lonst two nnd n hnlf hours. Those
cereals should be glvon with vory
littlo sugar, a littlo bull or orcronm,
Fruit—A child should novor gel any
othor but. rlpo fruit, and nono but tho
following: Ornngo, applo, pear,
prunes (not plums), iiIho chorrlos nnd
grnpoB. Tho latter aro objcclionablo
on nccount of (heir Hoods, but If lho
soods of tho chorrlos nnd grapes aro
taken out they are very healthful, It
Is noodloHB to soy that If tho child Is
not old enough lo chow thq fond right
tho npplos or pours Hhould ho scrnpoil,
nnd in nny cftso only tho Juice of the
ornngo should ho glvon, A child
should 'never got ■ nny berries, bananas, moloiiB or ponchos. The lottor
may bn glvon when stowed or sugared.

No! the ticket would be issued to cover the distance
which this amount would buy, in like manner as these
are all commodities so is the labor power of the worker
AND it is as illogical for him to give more than he Is
paid for as it is for the sellers of the various articles
In this week's issue we complete the reproduction of a
proposed bill amending "The Coal Mines Regulation Act."
We have printed installments each week feeling that, by
so doing tliere would be a better opportunity, for our
readers wh'.-» are interested in the coal mining industry
to read over the different chapters and clauses and
digest them better than if its publication had been made
all at once. When we started these extracts we prefaced
ihem with a request that any suggestions of amendment,
improvement or additions of*any kind cither with,regard
to the text, or to the objects involved would be acceptable
and that we would give them space in our columns.
Furthermore for the purpose of aiding those, to whom
our suggestions might not be sufficiently clear we outlined certain portions that we'thought could be improved
quoting the original and then giving our views. "As an
evidence of the deep interest that has been -displayed
by those whose welfare is effected by this proposed legislation we would feel that our efforts had not been wholly
useless if ten letters had been sent in, nay more, even
five, but instead of this small number candor compels us
lo tell the truth and quote the exact number of responses
to have reached the astounding figures of .000000.
There are many features of this proposed bill that are
decidedly superior to those contained in its predecessors
, still there is room for still further improvements and yet
they wlio ought to- be   most   interested are positively
This method of framing legislation is highly commendable and they who have, been instrumental in its initiation have shown that they believe that by submitting it

mon many minds" would have a complete exemplification.
In brief it is the application of the referendum in practice.
Naturally it was, expected that this plan would result in
the making of a piece of remedial legislation that would
be rjeplete with beneficial clauses, but no, they who are
constantly grumbling at conditions do not even display
energy enough to write a single letter relative to' the
riueslion* but in the event, of omissions of which they
thought about but did not take the trouble to put on
paper they will growl and wonder why it did not form a
' part of tho bill and more than likely attempt lo shoulder the blame on the local or district officers; this is not

kind in - Western Canada. This is
built at the expense of Glyn Vivian
of Swansea, whose hobby is building
sueh institutions for the benefit o£
miners. The hall is in charge of Mr.
Moore. . The opening meeting was
held last Friday. Probably,, being a
'Welshman, he recognizes the 'need of
such places for his fellow.countrymen.
A resolution was passed at the
regular meeting: "We, Local 1058,

Again I have to,, chronicle one of
those fatalities which seem to be an
unavoidable accompaniment to the industry of coal mining and' yet they
are altogether too frequent in this
locality as the percentage of thousands of tons of. coal .extracted, per
man killed or injured is far less than
the amount mined in other countries
where the natural conditions are certainly no' better, and if... anything in
those districts where'very deep mining is carried , on decidedly worse.
Various reasons have been advanced
to account for the disparity between
this country and the European continent, but few have stated that in consequence of ,tlie ' higher profits demanded on this side of the world the
same precautions for safeguarding
life are not effective here as are compulsory'in the more"populous.centers:

Although volumes have been written
about the evils of drink aiid to many
of us thoy are well known as we see
instances of the effects of intemperance quite frequently, still when-
an exceptionally., sad caso comes lo
notice we feel sorry for the sufferers
and then often go on our way without
further thought. There is nt the present tlmo a most distressing and heart
rending case right here in Coal Creek.
One of our residents, who Is addicted

"the-unluciry~victlm"'"was_ Mike"JagosT
or as his name sounds in' English,
Yargos. He, it appears was busy at
work in 107 pillar No. 2 when a slip
of rock and coal became detached unexpectedly and falling upon him broke
his leg and also doubtless inflicted
internal injuries as ho failed to rally
and died In the hospital to which
place he was conveyed for medical
attention as speedily as possible after
he was taken out-of the mine. The
coroner's inquest wa_f*"called, but after
meeting and attending to the preliminaries the adjournment was made
until Thursday at 3 p, m.
The deceased was 38 years of age,
married, his- family consisting of a
wife, two girls aged 12 and 8 respectively, and a boy of six yonrs,
residing in Gmlna Radzlhaw, Gallcyia.

Crawford's direction, left nothing to
be desired, on that score. The eyes
were pleased by pretty sights, the
ears regaled by melodious strains and
the sense'of taste was afforded ample
opportunity for practice on ice cream,
sandwiches and cake by those who
followed,. out the advice of the cynic
how to tame the unruly man, viz:
"Feed the brute." The disciples'1 ac
the shrine of Terpischore were numerous and they certainly showed. the
ardency of their devotion by tripping
merrily along until the youthful hours

expressions of * pleasure "were flying

gainsaying the .fact that the executives of the tennis club so ably aided
by the ladies are to be,complimented
on the function.
A nasty accident took place at the

What is the*1 matter with the Coleman football "club? Comments were
freely passed by the spectators' and
while we refrain from' reducing them

acknowledge, that they were merited.
One of the greatest drawbacks to improvement in all phases of life is the
resting upon one's oars and living on
a past reputation instead of keeping
constantly in view the need of practice. To sleep, to dream,, after you're
dead may be proper, but there's no
reason for anticipating this condition
whilst alive. Frank were entitled to

We have received this week a very
interesting paper by Dr. W. H.
B. Aikins printed by the Canadian
Practitioner Review on the. radium
treatment of rodent ulcer, skin cancer,
etc., which, although too technical in*
its phraseology for the layman, nevertheless is sufficiently explicit lo enable one who is not' a disciple of
Esculapus to recognize that radium
therapy has passed the empirical
stage. Caution is suggested In the
radium treatment and that practitioners should not become blind to the
values of other tried and satisfactory
methods in certain cases. The gratifying results achieved In the last fow
years by the radium treatment for
cancer bespeak the possibility as the
modus operandi becomes better understood of a practical elimination of
this dread disease except, when too
far advanced. -  *

Dear Sir—In order to correct any
false impressions that may be held
by any of our 'membership relative
to the omission of the ritualistic ceremony of the United Mine Workers of
America I would ask for the necessary
space to. make explanation. Brother
Louis F. Melul, the young man who
was buried on the 26th was a follower
of the Catholic church and inasmuch
as the resident priest, Father Michels,
is a newcomer in our- midst and this
brother' was- the first of those who
are under his jurisdiction to be buried
I considered that as a mark of courtesy I should inform him, therefore
having failed to locate any of his
relatives after every effort to- do so
on. the evening of tho 25th ! called
upon the reverend gentleman who at
first strongly objected to the oui lai
taking place in tho afternoon, but
after lengthy explanation regarding
the reason therefor he reluctantly expressed his intention to comply,, but
asked thnt in futuro the, funerals
should be in the morning unless some
extraordinary circumstances intervened to prevent.   , ' "
When the question of the reading
of our burial services was discussed
he positively refused to allow It because such would be contrary to the
rules of the church, and as It is our
desire to conform to the amenities
that govern such matters Is the reason
for the omission alluded to and this
letter Is written solely for the purpose of enlightening those who may
wonder why it was not readv Trusting* that this explanation may be satisfactory to all concerned and thanking you for its insertion, I am, dear
sir, yours very truly;

The Coleman Miner of July lst contained a paragraph relative to a case

order that the public may be enlightened on the subject permit me
through your columns to state a few-
pertinent facts. Tire Crown was prevented from taking early action as
previous to the issuance of the summons the chief witness, a single man,

I am prepared to bring forward, six
witnesses at any time, in fact, they
were waiting to give evidence, but
were not callod upon to do so. When
the charge was made on the 20th of
April Mr. L. A. Manly made, a quick
trip to Edmonton thus delaying the

nnd traffic in ■ intoxicating liquors in
this province, passed at- the last session bf the. legislature, and declared
by legal experts to be the most
stringent, drastic and at the same
time practical piece of liquor legislation on any statute book of a British
dominion, comes into force and effect throughout British Columbia on
tlie lst of August, and will be strictly
aud impartially enforced from that
date. It passed the Iocnl parliament
(which must, be recognized ns representing undeniably the will > of the
peoplo of the province which had 'just
elected Its members) by unanimous
voto, and therofore crystall/.os the
well considered' views of British
Columbia today on 'the subject of
liquor law. To attempt to Introduce
any oilier .prohibitory-or regulntlon
system until this new law of tho
land has been fairly tested in practice,''would bo not,only irrational but
a gratuitous insult to constituted

interdict tho snlo of liquor to "any
misspends, -wastes or lessens his
estate, or injures his health, or endangers or interrupts the pence or
happiness of his family." The penalty for infringement' of the act is.a
fine' of not less than $100 and noc
more than $300, or In default imprisj
onment    for    not ..more"   than nine
months,-, Under iheT— old act the.
penalty for infringement of the regulations was cumulative, running for
the first, offense from.$50 to $250;
for the second offense from $200 to
$500; and for the third from $500 to,
$1,000. It was found that under the
old regulations the emulative naturo
of the fines seldom -came into play
beyond the' second offense, the licensing authorities usually refusing to renew the license of holders who had
been twico convicted of -infringements of tho regulation. For, this
reason tho equally heavy penalty for
all offenses whether first, second or
subsequent., has now been adopted.
