On Tuesday, evening Mr. J. B.
Turney was entertained at dinner at
the Coal company's quarters, the occasion being the' presentation by tho
members of * the office staff of a
testimonial to their late purchasing
agent and his wife; as a token of the
high  esteem* and   respect  in ' which
-». ,$*
they were.*'held by those with whom
Mr. Turney's work, in the past h-ad
been associated. ;''
- After dinner the whole * of the
staff who we're ^ able., tb attend, gathered together to 'do honor to their
confrere,, The testimonial took the
shape of a lady's and -. gentleman's
gold watch foi* Mrs. and Mr. Turney
. respectively. Mr. James McLean
made the presentation,, and read the
following address: •■3
"To Mr. and Mrs. J.* B. Turney.    '   *-*
"Dear Friends:
"' "It is .with feelings of deep regret
■'that we  learn vol. your intended de-
■ parture from our midst, and we who
have been more or less intimately
associated, with ,you  in  a  social  as
. well as a business way during; your
term . of residence ,  in    Fernie,, feel
-that we cannot let this "opportunity
pass  without * voicing  in  some  way
■our appreciation of the many sterling
—qualities. __hlch_ have endeared" you to
"I see . around ■ me," he remarked,
"those'.with whom I have been intimately acquainted - for the last 10
years,'and others :of ' more recent
acquaintance.", His connection .with
them all had been of a very pleasant nature, and . he assured them
that .t was "with a deep feeling, of
regret that these old associations
with ■ them and their work had been
severed. He tendered them his very
hearty thanks on .behalf of himself
and wife for the good feelings which
they had, always shown' towards
them, and,which they had exhibited
in such a practical manner on this
occasion. " °   ,
Mr. Turney teft for the east on

Unfortunate Termination to Holiday Sports-Crazed by-
Drink an Inoffensive Par.y is Knifed-A Miracle
That Murder WasrNot Committed
Again the question.of a newcabi-,
net minister to" fill the vacant portfolio of finance is being discussed
and several names have been men;
tioned. Southern.; British - Columbia,
the great .mining district of the province has representation. •*> Tlie premier is from Victoria, the attorney**,
general .from Vancouver, the provincial secretary from the nortli coast,
the commissioner of lands from the
Okanagan, * and the commissioner of
works from northern Kootenay, while
southern Kootenay and the Boundary
'are unrepresented.' The vacancy,
should ■ be * filled by the member' for1
one.of the nine ridings comprising
this territory—Fernie', Cranbrook, Nel--
son, Ymir,' Rossland, Slocan, Kaslo,
Gra'hd' Forks and Greenwood. Of the
members-for, these ridings the two
.wo most likely to get the position
would be Ross of Fernie and Schofield
of Ymir. Of these two, Mr. Schofield
is better known throughout" the nine
ridings and his appointment would
consequently, be the more popular one.
However, this portion of the province
should have representation .in the
cabinet, and the members should insist on recognition. Such a ■ man as
Schofield-would add strength to any
cabinet in.Canada, while" some of the
coast possibilities' mentioned would
prove "a source of weakness.—Slocan

- On Monday, night after the field
sports had" been finished and tbe
crowds are gathered at the Fernie
Opera Houso to witness the prizefight, * others attended the. moving
picture show at the Grand;-Theater,
about; 10 o'clock the report "was current that there had been a * drunken
brawl • at- one "of the hotels In which
a knife had played a prominent part,
and upon- seeking for information we
ascertained that the report was .perfectly true. Racial" antipathy .inflamed by- liquor may be, assigned as
the contributory causes to the trouble
the . assailant being . an -Italian who
evidently  maddened    by    drink * and
._<-■.    * -
aching for a quaifiUj-withoiit the
slightest provocation,.'attacked an inoffensive, Slavonian, and made such
a vicious attack.upon htm that the
knife* blade penetrated-through his
coat, vest, upper pari of his pants
and through his underwear and penetrating- the abdomehi-gashed a hole,
in his , side that-"-*,.caused the intestines to protrudes:.although fortunately without .- puncturing them.
Clerke apeared on. the'scene a7few
minutes after the'" ^occurrence and
rounding up a trio' 'ofj Italians quickly/had them transported to the'city
calaboose and on. Tuesday'morning
the three ' were taken, -down to the
hospital to confront the injured man,
Jozef Janco (pronounced Yancho) and
he identified one John Sereno as the
culprit. Ah operation was performed
and unless somo unforseen complication arises there is practically no
danger. It was discovered later that
Janco was not the only one receiving knife "wounds as another Slavonian has been found whose body
bears marks of a similar character,
but he»acknowledges that * * in . tlie
melee he could not state- definitely

patient is progressing very favorably

This Fellow Had a Very
Bad Memory and Forgot to Return
That there is , every probability of
the coal oil claims ln the Flathead
country in East Kootenay passing
Into tho hands of capitalists and
undergoing a process of extensive development was th'e effect of news received in tho city yesterday.
Mineralogist's Report.
At various times during the past
few years discoveries of coal oil and
coal soams In tho Flathead district
havo boen reported, In tho annual
report, of the minister of mines for
the provlnco, in 1003, for Instance, tlio,
following remarks concerning this
little known section of British Columbia woro mado:
"Tho district Is so shut off from
tho remainder of tho provlnco that
vory littlo prospecting has hoon dono
thore for mlnornl, other limn coal or
oil, especially hy British Columbia
prospectors, although a number from
Montana havo visited tho vicinity.
railway and the Great Northern railways both have surveys looking'over
the ground at the present time with a
view to railroad development; the government is making a survey for a'
wagon road from the Crow's Nest and
the Chicago, Milwaukee and Puget
Sound railway last spring acquired
a, number of claims to the north of
Couldry creek, to the west of the
Flathead river, upon which are exposed six highly promising seams of
coal. That the railway considers this
property of enormous value is shown
by the price paid which ran into six
figures, the first of which was not
the lowest unit.
The deals- at present in progress
affect, however, the .development of
the coal oil claims rather than tho
coal discoveries.
Many Seepages oi* Oil.
This oil was- first discovered many
years ago by Indians. At the present
time there are known to' be- three
seepages.on Sage creek and one on
Kiske-neh-na creek. To the south of
this point, in Montana, is another
seepage and again oil is oozing from
the ground at two places a'few miles
east of the Rockies in Alberta."
Vast Oil Reservoir.
All those seepages are within a
radius of 3G miles and mining experts'
believe that the indications point to
a vast reservoir' of oil probably on
the west side of the Rockies. It is
believed that this reservoir is in the
form of a basin and that the seepages
are from weak points'in the,geological
formation on. the sides.
The development of th|s*e oil' claims
has been retarded greatly by the difficulties of ■ access to the Flathead
country.. These will be obviated,
.however, when the new government
road'from (lie Crow's Nest and the
proposed railroads are constructed.
Well Already Sunk.
' The-only well yet sunk is on Kishe-
neli-ua' creek, where the company
operating was tho. South Eastern
British Columbia Land and Oil company. .This corporation has a well
which is ,down some'1,200 feet. Two
crevices were struck in the course
of the drilling. It is the opinion, of
geologists that it will be necessary
to drill considerably deeper to reach
the oil in paying qualities, owing to
'an  overthrust  in  the  geological  for-

further progress of the work in  the
case of this company.
Exceptionally Valuable Oil.
- On, Sage creek the three seepages
discovered arc on claims owned by
Sir Charles -Ilibbert Tupper. The oil
here is of exceptionally high grade
and. su6h as'is'found'In only one other
placo on tho continent. It is of a
clear olive - green color and can lie
used for illuminating purposes without going through any refining process. A big seepage on the east sldo
of the creek comes up through stand-
stone in large quantities. From the
coal showings near this point it Is
thought that there must bo a large
volume of oil near at hand,   ,
Engineers, as representatives of big
capitalists, have been ■ exploring the
Flathead oil roglons during tho pnst
month and their roport. is expected to
result in a rapid development of the
claims' of tho valley generally.
Good Farming Land.
Tho Flathead valloy consists of a
beautiful opon stretch of land nnd at,
tho international boundary lino is
nearly 12 miles wide. Tho elovatlon
Is nbout 3,200 foot and the land Is
admirably suited to wheat raising and
gonoral farming. It nhounds In game
of all descriptions and Is doscrlbod by
n rocont visitor as n, hunter's paradise.

Despite the rain that threatened
all morning and came for a time in
a downpour in the afternoon the
celobratlqn in Fernio on Labor Day
was a success * from almost every
point, of view. Crowds of .visitors
from neighboring points thronged
the streets and the recreation

To the Officers and Members of the"T7nited Mine Workers of America:'
Fellow Workers— -        . -
At.the recent Special Convention held in this city, August 11 to 21, 1910, the following was adopted: That
this convention levy au assessment of one dollar per week on the members.of our organization who are working to provfde Tor the men engaged in strike, the International Executive Board to decrease or abolish the assessment, wben, in its judgment, it deems it advisable and to the best interests of tbe United Mine Workers
of America.
There is a general retrenchment of expenditure of funds by the International organization, and during this
present struggle only, such men will be employed as necessary, to safe-guard .and protect the best Interests at
the "United Mine Workers of America. Inasmuch as no specified time was designated by the convention, wben
the assessment should go into" effect, your International Executive Board decided that It shall take effect September 1, 1910. .
You are all.no doubt aware ot the serious situation now confronting our organization; bo serious that it
required the calling of a Special International Convention to consider ways and means to prosecute the strikes
now in progress in the several districts to a successful termination.
Inasmuch as the continuance of tbe twenty-five cent per week assessment, submitted to, you recently by
the International Executive Board for referendum vote and carried, will uot raise sufficient funds to meet the
situation, the one dollar a week assessment specified- in tbe above resolution was deemed absolutely necessary
by the convention to care lor our members  on  striKe.
We urgently advise our members to respond freely and unhesitatingly, not only to care for our members
who are waging such a noble fight, but to protect the perpetuity of our splendid organization, hearing in mind
that the coal. operators and their allied interests are waging a relentless war of extermination against our organization. There are approximately 100,000 of our members ou strike, who, hy their unswerving fidelity to
the principles of our organization are. no less determined now than they were at the inception of the strikes,
to continue their battle for human rights indefinitely. Theii- fight is your fight; their Interest is your interest
and we express the hope and have every reason to believe that our great membership will rise to the occasion
out of the fullness of their hearts at this time, upon the brond platform that "an injury to oue is the concern
of all," and will respond promptly, generously and in tbe same spirit tbat has characterized our members iu
past conflicts.
Your International Executive Board firmly believes that success will crown our efforts ere many weeks
have passed and this assessment will be decreased or abolished at such time as conditions will warrant such
action. We again urge our membership to meet the situation promptly and loyally, rally to the support of our
striking members.
Your International Executive Board urgently requests that all local unions having surplus funds on hand.to
advance one or more payments at their earliest opportunity after ret elpt of this circular. Our members will be
kept fully Informed through the columns of the United Mine Workers* Journal from week to week of the progress made in negotiating wage agreements in the districts affected and now involved in strikes.
Send all money to Edwin Perry, International Secretary-Treasurer, 1101-1106 State Life Building, Indianapolis, Indians.
By order of the International Executive Board.
Sincerely and fraternally yours, 	
:   '      Secretary-Treasurer.
■- Indianapolis,  Ind., Aug.  29,  1310.
To the Members of the United Mine Workers—Greeting:
You are aware that in accordance with the provisions of the International constitution a proposition was
sent to the entire membership for its consideration. This proposition submitted to our members the question
as to whelher or "not they were willing to continue the assessment of 25 cents per member per week.
The result of the vote returned to the International office gave a majority in favor of continuing the assessment o£ 25 cents par week per member. *-
All local unions whose membership is at work are authorized and instructed to collect 25 cents per member per weeS for the-month of August and forward the amount to the International Secretary-Treasurer, State
Life Building. Indianapolis, Ind.
By reason of the action of the Special Internationa! Convention, all members of the organization who are
at work wotild he required to pay an assessment of $1.00 per week per member, beginning the first week in
September. In another column of the Journal will be found official circular to our membership issued by the
International Executive Board.
With the hope that our membership will give this their immediate attention and comply with the action of
tbe referendum vote of our membership and the Special National Convention, we remain,

tiat stall.   He, asked Ross how. the
place- was and had been told that T.
Kerr, tie brattice man, bad- repaired
tie hurdle  and tiat tne    gas    was
gone.    Mr.  Ross  told him if he did
not belleve-'him to go and aee for
himself.    Kerr iad  reported  tbat  it
had been the work of but a few nonrepair, tie iurdie so that it
would  clear the place.    In  company
with Herr he had inspected the place
and   found   it  free   from .gas.     Gas
had been reported there tiree times
that week  and. he thought tbat tbe
n must be careless.

II.   Ross had not found much gns.
Mr. Shepherd asked   why   Sharpe
would discharge a man. who reported
Mr. McKinnell ropliod that he did
it any that a man would be discharged Tor reporting gas, but that
the book would be full If all the gas
found should be repprtad.
Mr. Shepherd read the mine report
showing   that   gtm was reported
and off from the 27th day ot June
until tho 8th of July.
Mr. McKinnell explained the situation of the gas. At times a "fireman
could remove bodies of gas and
againt lt would require the attention
of a man for a whole shift.
iwer to Mr. Shepherd, Mr.
McKlnnell said • that at times it
would be clear and again gas would
collect there. In pillar work
times the air courses became closed
and gas collected and again the air
would right itselt.
His Honor, asked Mr. McKinnell if
he had said that reporting gas was
causing trouble.and.that.it was all
dirt. On being pressed "he would not
swear that be iad not said tbis, saying that he bad said something about
having trouble with reports of gas
arid explained how it weo a trouble.
His Honor wished to know how It
waa so much trouble when he bad-ex-
fleeted Black to, fix it.
-Mr. McKinnell replied that careless
firemen were a trouble.   He. had
ported the case to Mr. Rush ell but
I not remember any of the conversation relating to the case. Mr.
Russell bad asked him to take Black
back, but ie said that he bad no
confidence in Black as a fireman.
Black did not seem to have his mind
his work. He had not always
thought so of Black.
Mr. Shepherd asked if he had asked
Eoss, Malone and Campbell'about the
is he did Black. These men had
reported tie existence of it continually.
Mr. McKlnnell said tiat he talked
Ross about it as ie had removed
several times. If Black iad signified that he would make an effort to
drive out tie gas he would have been
satisfied,-but he had refused to do eo,
being his duty under section 33 of
Thomas Kerr was sworn and told
how he had repeatedly fixed tie bratticing and hurdle and cleared tie
place of gas.
His Honor, asked if Black would
have time to fix the hurdle and drive
Kerr replied tiat ie did not think
tiat ie would have had time to do
this and attend to his other duties.
Mr. McKinnell asked if he might
correct a statement that had been
made regarding there being 20 men
to -sbotlight for. Sometimes, there
were only from 12 to 16 and again
there were 18.
Kerr, replying to a question by His
Honor, said tiat he did not know
what Black's duties were.
John Ross, the next witness, told
of inspecting the place and finding
gas there. He had helped Kerr to
fix it so that It would be driven out.
There was not a cubic yard of gas
and he thought that tha hurdle
effective. - Black could have fixed It
hnd he had time.
George Smith was next called and
sworn. He snld that he had worked
In conjunction with Black and told ot
the finding of tie gas. Ho attributed
the gas to weak ventilation. The mon
had been placed on safety lamps. Mr.
Deeming iad beon employed all one
sblft to try and get rid of tho gas
but was not able to do ao. He found
gas there when the hurdle- wa
position. He helped Mr. Black
shift and Mr. Black would assist him
the next.
Mr. John Barclay was called upon
next He said that every time he had
examined the place be bad found" gas
in it. There was about 18 Inches ot
gas. Mr. McKlnnell had told the firemen to try and remove it He
thought that there was a larger body
of gas behind the small body.: He
didn't think Mr. Black .could remove
the , gas. It. was hard to ventilate
to remove the.gas at that point.
Mrs. Kate Lewis was called upon
and gave evidence. . supporting that
given by Mr. Black regarding the
contersation with Mr. McKinnell. ,
Mt. James Deeming told of working one shift trying to remove gas.
He could not ventilate It out He
thought that the gas was but part
of a larger body that had located
there. There was uot a cuble.yard of
it .-     '  ■
Only   Under a  Revolutionized  industrial System Can the Deadly Plague
Be Wiped Out.
The  poverty and  ignorance  of its
victims are tbe    chief    reasons that
tuberculosis is  such a fatal  disease-
only an exaggeration of the truth
which is expressed by the well-known
epigram, that:    "Tbere are two kinds
of consumption—that of tie rich and
that  of  the  poor.    Tie    former    is
sometimes  cured,  tie  latter  never."
truer statement of the case would
be this:    "The incipient consumptive
can afford all tbe essentials of
treatment has a very good chance of
'ery;   while    tha    incipient  consumptive who cannot, afford these essentials has almost no chance."    Or,
re  briefly and  brutally put:     "If
* can afford proper .treatment, you
get well; if you cannot, yut must
."    Is  it  not  the  sober  truth  to
I a nation or a state which treats
citizens in this war uncivilised as
1 as wasteful and stupid?    I fear
future  historian  will not flatter
,et us trace the malign effects of
erty and ignorance on the consumptive. First of all they prevent
him from getting an early diagnosis,
which all authorities agree is of prime
importance in a cure. I am ashamed
iy that it is sometimes we physi-
*! who are to .blame for this fail-
but I trust not very often. The
average workingman or woman does
know the danger signals, and
thinks that the persistent cough, the
loss of weight, fever, and weakness
ire only "getting run down" or a
'hard cold" or "catarrh." He feels
that ie'eannot afford both a doctor
and medicines, and grudges the time
in waiting at a dispensary. So
tie poor consumptive wastes ils
;y ori some wortiless patent
medicine nntii the golden opportunity
of tie incipient stage is lost Here
ignorance seems to be chiefly at fault
and popular educating- concerning the
early stages or symptoms of phthisis,
'and instruction to visit a private
physician or public dispensary as soon
as they appear are of great Impor-
;, and the work already done fn
this direction has undoubtedly saved
many lives.
But in onr efforts to educate the
people in tils branch of hygiene we
should not lose sight of the fact tbat
it is their poverty arid also the deficient teaching given in public
schools which are responsible for
their Ignorance of all branches of
hygiene. If every family could afford to send their children through
the high school, at least, and hygiene
were properly taught there, all our
citizens would know not only how
tuberculosis la transmitted and how
prevent it, but also how typhoid,
smallpox, pneumonia and all common
diseases are propagated, and how to
avoid them. Would not such universal education in preventive medicine be of tremendoiis help in our
warfare against every disease? Should
be satisfied with anything short
of tbis in our demands for popular
education in hygiene? But I hardly
need to tell you that we can only
make it possible (or every child
to school until he Is 16 years old by
Soeialism. Or the state might give
Ibe parents sufficient income to support their children in school for this
period as well as for their i
port; and tbat again could be done
only by a Socialist slate, where every
man was given regular em."
and every man got as income tho full
value of his labor.
To return to our consumptive, let
ua suppose that he was so forrum
as to get an early diagnosis but
unforliinalo as tu be a. cigar-maker
to be employed In one of thoso trades
which are so liable (o tuberculosis.
He has n family of five, which he Is
barely able to support decently
regular pny. In spire of dimying
themselves ail but the cheapest pleasures or life tliey hnve succeeded in
saving only a buodrifd dollars. Put
yourself In tliat man's place when the
doctor tells him this. *'lf you (an
quit work for sis months, go to California or Carolina, where you can live
outdoors In the sunshine; If you can
go to a sanatorium or somehow get
rest, plenty of nutritious food, nursing
and tbe care of a skilled physician,
you have syery chance to recover; but
if you keep on working in tiat dusty
shop, or -stay' at home in a dark,
stuffy room, where you don't get sunshine, pure air, or proper food and
care, I can't do much for you, and
the odds are aH against you."
Consider what a terrible position
that poor man is put in. He is told
that unless he stops work and spends
a lot of money on himself he win
almost surely die; aud yet he knows,
that if he does stop work, he cannot
for his treatment and support his
family for more than a few weeks.
Going to a better climate or to a
private sanatorium near home are evidently impossible. Let us suppose ie
lives in Massaciusetts which has a
■ sanatorium at Sharon, costing
only %i a week. How long could he
afford to stay there? I think it would
him at least $12 a week to support his family at home; so that, if
allow only $4 for bis fare to
Sharon, he could stay just six weeks
for his (100, just long enough to taste
)oy of rest and good food and
and .returning health, and then
have to leave penniless and go hack
i the killing work, or turn beggar
id desert his family.
We all know that six weeks treat-
r cures phthisis, and tbat this is
of the tragedies  of tbe  disease
that so many half-cured consumptfves
relapse and die  when  they go  back
unhealthful work and a generally
unhygienic life.    Special efforts have
made   recently  in   Boston  and
'here to secure light outdoor work
ior    consumptives    discharged    from
Wor/a or half-cured at home, but
merciless economic system makes
impossible for most cases.
.  most cases even the futile six-
weeks sanatorium treatment is an impossible    luxury    for the    poor consumptive,  and  he  can  only  grit his
teeth and go back to work with the
terrible fear in his heart that soon,
few  weeks  perhaps,   iu  a  few
months at most, he will have to slop
work, will not he able to support his
family but be a burden to them, ar.d

' -^pllE verdict of the. coroner's jury in ihe case of
James Boboy, the driver who succumbed to
injuries while at work in Coal Creek is somewhat
paradoxical.   Here it is in brief:
Deceased  canie  to his-denth through his own
carelessness ancl then they add a rider censuring
the company i'or not exercising more care in the
matter of supplying proper equipment.
If the unfortunate man came to his untimely
end through his own carelessness the supposition
must necessarily follow that he was aware of the
condition of the tools he was working with, and
yet if he possessed this knowledge it seems scarce-
Iv" credible that he would have deliberately  as-
* i- i t v
sunietl the risk that would jeopardize his-own life
and limb;" on the' other hand if he did so foolish
a thing* where is the sense of recommending the
company to exercise more care with their equipment when he, whose duty it would be ,to notify
them fails to do so? If the accident.resulted from
thc use of a defective chain aud Robcy was ignorant of the defect to attribute carelessness .to him
is decidedly illogical, whereas, if the company's
officials were cognizant of the fact lhe onus of
responsibility for the accident is upon them.
Based on the assumption that it was the mnn's
carelessness that was the cause of his*death the
suggestion of the jury to,the company was.in this
instance superfluous. The situation presents to
us much the appearance of running with .the liare
' and chasing with the hounds.
. The effect of such a verdict in the event of the
basing' their objection on the plea of carelessness,
which is tantamount .to "involuntary suicide"
pmight lead to costly litigation which would have
* . boen averted had thc wording been free of the
ambiguity that characterizes it.
((fvEATII from natural causes" was the ver.
diet of a London jury on thc case of an infant which Uie examining physician reported
"general wasting and improper feeding," in plain
English    starvation.    "Natural    causes."    What;
.blunted  sensibilities!    What   an   intellectual de-
(•ision-.'for "twelve good men and true" to arrive
.   at after listening to tho>evidence of the parish
doctor,, the policeman and theunfortunate mother!
, An officer of the National Society for the 1 . .-
'vention of Cruelty to Children testified as to the
honesty of the poverty stricken family. The dis-
tract ed mother told a story, interspersed witli
••-pasms oJ:\ grief, that stands out as moro powerful
IIP indictment against the sordidncss of capitalism
than au^pij-n'.can' portray. Telling of her lovo for
ltt-r little ones, how she liad so deprived herself
of food on behalf ol! hor offspring until outraged
nature was unable to supply tho lacteal fluid
wherewith she could furnish fond to lier siiekling
bubo and iih a substitute she gave it barley water
and cow's mille diluted. Night and day Imd sho
watched over lior last born ns it wasted away.
Yd the verdict rends "Natural causes" instead
of unnatural, inhuman, unless perchance these
wisciieivs consider it perfectly natural for thc
poor to starve to death, "When! oh whon will the
workers nwnke from Iheir lethargy nnd prepare
themselves to throw overboard a system which
offers nothing hut want and misery with all its
nlt-.-inl.ml evils to tho class they belong Ifi'/

taught the use of firearms is a valuable, acquisition;-that a knowledge of first aid be/studied,
whereby, in-ease of need, he may benefit himself
and others, is a consummation devoutedly to be
wished; that he.study the manly art of boxing,
develop his muscle, and increase his lung capacity,
either by wrestling or swimming, are praiseworthy
objectives; but somewhat like the snowball, which
appears harmless, and is in itself harmless, may
inflict a serious wound if it conceals within its
surface either' a marble or a stone. This simile
Ave aver has its parallel in the Boy'Scout movement., One of the principal tenets is blind obedience to superiors, even though it may appear non-
sensicaV'or be repugnant to.the individuals ideas
of what is right or wrong. To all those who" are
interested, either pro or con, we strongly recommend a book by Ernest Crosby, the title of which
is "Captain Jinks," wherein the ideal soldier is
very cleverly portrayed in a dialogue supposed to
take place between the German Emperor and an
American soldier. Upon the latter being asked
by the Prussian Emperor.what he thought about
a certain military movement, he replied "I do not
think, 1 obey." This classic answer so pleased
the German emperor that he congratulated the
man upon being an ideal soldier.
In the book, "Deeds Which Won the Empire,"
published for the edification of these young boys,
we find that the different matters brought "forth
and elaborated * upon convincingly prove thc
truth of our contention as to the ulterior purpose
in view. The details in military style of the trial
and shooting of a fellow scout, and also his burial.
The advise to use every' effort to overcome the
fear of bloodshed, and as a means of accomplishing this end the suggestion is made of visiting
shambles, and they are also instructed how to
.sl-ilighter cattle and sheep; but to cap the climax,
after being taught so high a grade of morality—
they are furthermore counselled to be religious.
Tlie recognition is made; no matter whether'it be
consciously or unconsciously, of the growing antipathy among all civilized nations, to militarism
with its attendant evils and burdens; and witit
the end of combating,this spirit they who live
by,the sword lire making an attempt, sisyphean
though it may be, to stem the tide by the organiza
tion 'of Boy Scout, Territorials, ,11'ome Defence
Guards, and kindred institutions, and though' for
a time a certain measure 6'f success may attend
their efforts, with the growth of solidarity spreading throughout all nations, it must be merely

These amendments were made I believe as the result of somo suggestions made in tho columns of tho
Frank papor to, the effect that tho
miners who had no property should
bo made to-xontribulo to the village
revenue, and probably ono or two
trips to Edmonton also had somo
Tho following is also taken from
tho act nnd was not changed tn tho
process of amending:
"38. Tho proporty oxompt from
taxation under tho provisions of' this
net shall bo:

If objection woro taken to tho paymont of poll tax on this ground, howovor, much legal argument may onsuo
with doubtful results oxcopt insofar
as oxponso to tho individual who pro-
tosts is concerned.

chosen remarks outlined the events
connected., with the association which
showed a creditable progress has been
made, much to- the gratification of
all concerned. The reading of'the
balance sheet by Secretary J. Graham
led to .some discussion relative .to,
outstanding indebtedness of ft some
who ,had left the town, but these
debts were found' to be largely compensated "for by shares held by the'
debtors., As an evidence of growth
it was shown.that the turnover was
one;third. larger per month than
what obtained during the previous
half-year. At the/ start the number
of shares held was only -100, whereas
there are now holders of over 1,200—
$10 shares. The debt upon the building is nearly, 'cleared off- and, there
is a good round sum for the reserve
fund so that a fair dividend -will be
forthcoming to all members. The
outlook for continued success is'.excellent and the institution is bound

Heartless   Landlords   Evict   Families
From Their Miserable Homes.
NEW YORK, Sept. 10.—Rumors
that a general strike affecting half
a million persons on the east side
spread rapidly through ' New York
yesterday. The first effect was upon
the police department, whero orders,
were quietly issued to strengthen the
reserves in the precincts from 14th
street to thc Battery.
The men and women now out on
striko number 75,000, of whom, 10,000
aro Italians, tho remainder being
Jews. .Of the number lii.OOO aro
women, and half of the strikers cannot spealc English; Tho trades now
on strike are tho cutters, largely
Americans, and the finishers and
pressors, ignorant and poorly ..paid.
Their demands briefly aro: Abolition of the home sweatshop; no more
than 2V_ hours overtime during the
rush season, thereby preventing the
killing,work of IS and 20 hours; a
48-hour week; a definite minimum
scale sufficient to maintain the work*
er during a part of the time he is
idle, because of .trade conditions;
free use of power-driven sewing machines and other necessary appliances in tlie shops; strictly union
Cutters, pressors and finishers have
been on striko since July 7th. There
has been little or no disorder but
though spectacular features have
been lacking the horror of tho strike
has been great. A train of, suicide
and crime by the men; of suicide and
worse by the women, has" followed in
the wake of the strike.    It is freely
utes after 12 o'clock on Saturday,
night. The same penalty was inflicted on a soldier who was said to
have kicked two policemen in the
face and stomach. From this we
may deduce thai two minutes over-'
time equals two kicked policemen.
"There seems no limit to what persons will do when they have the horrors' of poverty staring them  in  the
face, and honest poverty at that,"'remarked the Shoreditch Coroner after
listening "Ho a sad  story of a mother's desperate fight against adversity.
The  inquiry  had  reference    to    the
death of a six-months-old child, Alexander Carroll, whose parents live in
Herford street, Kingsland road. Sarah
Carroll, the mother. Who is tho wife
of a  meat  porter,  said   she  had   six
children  and   four  were   alive.    For
six weeks she herself fed the baby,
and after that, gave him barley water
and  cow's milk.    The parish doctor
.ordered  the   child's   removal   lo   tho
Shoreditch Infirmary, where ho died.
Sho had dono hor duty to the child,
and tended him night and day,    The
Coroner:    You seem    to   havo dono
everything  except  keop  it clean.    I
am told you tried to drown the baby
six months ago.   Why was that? Witness:    That was through trouble, but
I   never    attempted    to  . drown  tlie .
baby.    P. C.. Miezner   (the Coroner's
officer):   But  you  had   tlie  child  in
your arms when the constable- Jumped
over the canal bank nnd dragged you ■
back.   Witness (bursting Into tears):
Yes;  but I don't'remember anything
about it,, I was  in  such  trouble.*   I
love   my   children • too   much   to   do
them harm, aiid have starved myself
to give them food.   I thank'God now
I never succeeded in doing it.    P. C.

Vylet Roosevelta a' jeho spoloc-
nikov na/'studijnu" cestu medzi banikov nebolo nie Ineho nez znamy
americky politicky trik. Vysiel si

nieto ked' este ho vidi osobne, alebo
ked' pocuje, ze taky pan sa zaujima

Keby Roosevelt nosil zauimy robot-
neho l'udu na srdci, keby mu skut-
ocno na jeho pomeroch zalezalo,- a
keby to s ,nini myselel, uprimne,
nemusel chodit' na studijne cesty, bol
presidentom a vtedy mocou svojho

Vtedy to neurobil, robotnej .triedy si

Comme tous ses devanciers, ce congres'dont l'importance ne peutechap-

II comprendra des delegues venus
de presque tous les pay miniers du

pays d'Asie et d'Afrique non encore

fr'eres mineurs des autres parties du

tumulte qui avaient eu lieu dans Ies
assemblees de comite, au Congres
International des socialistes se sont
continuees pendant toute la premiere
seance publique, aussi bien dans la
discussion generale . que, entre delegues de meme pays.
Les representants russes se sont disputes avec une telle violence, 'que
les autres delegues ont du" intervenir
pour les calmer.,   .   .\
M. Ledebot, un depute au Reischtag
allemand, ai fait une vigoureuse at-
taque contre le colonel Roosevelt et
ses tendances" militaristes et aussi, a
cause do son immixtion dans' les affaires du parti nationaliste en Egypte.
II a termine son discours en tfai-
tant l'ex-president de "probenriter" ou
"courtier" en politique.'
Le comite antimilitairiste a adopte
une resolution declarant qu'il est du
devoir des democrates socialistes, de
resister a l'hydre du militarisme, de
refuser de voter, dans les parlements,
les montants demandes pour des fins
militaires et de reclamer sans cess.j
le desarmement, jusqu 'a ce'que le but
soit atteint,
La resolution consollle aussi do de-
mandcr de limiter les armemc-nts

James Keir Hardie, au nom des

Nothing 4'more barbarous was ever
countenanced among civilized people
than the practice which still obtains
in .Scotland of sending children out
Ot doors in all weathers barefooted.
The custom arose out of the poverty
of the.people. *The soil'of Scotland
is poor and the'climate rigorous, and,
previous to the development of her
mineral resources and the building
up of her industries, the'inhabitants
were steeped in the deepest poverty.
At that time it was perhaps justifiable
to make a virtue of necessity and to
claim that tlie privations.which they
endured in their youth made Scotchmen a hardy race. But these condi:
tions no longer obtain. True the
workers -are still miserably poor, but
they are not worse off than their fellows In England, France, Germany,
or any other industrial country. As
wealth increases tlie habits and customs of a people change, and tlie improvement in tlio condition of the
workers has been reflected in Scotland in a-falling off in the number of
children to be seen barefooted in the
streets. The sight is still all to common,  however.
Speaking as one who has suffered
it,' nothing could be more miserable
than to' go through a winter's day
barefooted. Never for one moment is
the unfortunate, victim comfortable.
The intense cold causes tlie skin to
crock into little bleeding sores, called
"hacks,", the feet and legs become
red with a tinge of blue, and the tone
of the whole body is reduced to a
permanent condition of shiver. Only
by incessant activity is life rendered
supportable, and if by any chance
one cannot run about, resort must be
had to such expedients as standing
inside one's cap with the soles and
as much of the upper part of the feet
covered as the size of the cap will
permit. Tlie child, thus miserably clad
is a splendid subject for the exercise
o[ 'the cruelty of degraded' school
teachers. Well does ' the writer remember one such monster whose special delight it was, if * a'barefooted
child should happen to, be late on a
frosty morning to "punish" the offender by laying about with "the taws"
on the almost raw feet and legs' of
the; victim.     - "     o
Fortunately, as I have said, the custom is waning, and it is only" the children1 of the drunken, tlie "degraded,
and people who through want'' of
work are so absolutely poor as to b*i
unable to provide boots; that are "now
to'be seen barefooted. These children * are, or should be, a charge on
the rates. In many "cases they are
officer of the parish in which they
reside.' This may explain the following extract from the Glasgow Herald
of July 1, 1910:
'Bare Feet and Cruelty to Children.
Dr. 'William Cullen,' Garngad district medical officer under Glasgow
Parish Council, In a report dealing
with the Children Act from a medicnl
point of view, makes some interesting
observations on the question of sending children out with bare feet being
regarded as cruelty within the meaning of the act. He states that the
habit of going with the feet bare is
something of a national custom in
Scotland, and if less seen now. than
several years ago, that is solely because of the changing customs of tho
people, and in no sense due to any
adverse influence that it ever had
on the health. He points out that in
three separate industries in one part
of Glasgow adult young women can
be seen ..daily, summer and winter,
going lo their employment with their
feet bare. During 20 years' parochial
experience in that neighborhood he *
had never heard it suggested that
tliey were* physically any the worse
for it. He concludes by saying that
to interfere with children running out
of doors, even in midwinter, with bare
feet, as an ovidence of cruelty, and
with no other ovidence of cruelty in
their treatment, is a direct and uncalled for interference with the' liberty
of .lhe subject.
The liberty of the subject! It would
not 1 e an unwarranted interference
with the liberty * of* tho sub joe. I
think, to compel Dr. Cullen to "run
about" for a day in midwinter barefooted. And if it is good for young
women ln three scpniato industries
to go lo work barefooted, summer and
winter, it must lie good for young
women In other industries, and in no
industries, to go to work, or to go
visiting, shopping, lo church, and to
chapel barefooted. Why does not Dr.
Culeln advocate a return lo Spartan
conditions, and. claim tliat no "adverse influence" on'thc health of children would result if they*'were sent
out bare-naked to run aboni, even in
mid-winter. But Dr. Cullen is only
a product of the times. Apologists
can be found for any abuse.
Slavery had Its apologists-, it was
good for the slave; serfdom had its
apologists, it was good for I he "serf;
.wage-slavery has its apologists, it is
good yfor the. wage-slave.
The hapless, barefooted child needs
Socialism, the women wlio trudge to
work barefooted, summer and winter,
need Socialism, the adult male work-"
er who sweats and shivers from' year's
end to year's ends need Socialism,
the.whole working class needs Socialism. Come thon, workers, rally to
the standard of the S. L. P., and put
an end to capitalism with all its horrors. SOUTH, SIDE.

An   Amusing   Battle   At  a   Resort  of
Fashion. '
Not in the least overawed by their
riches, a humble New Jersey carpenter has hurled defiance at his millionaire neighbors, --and a humorous
battle is being waged in consequence.
The scene is laid at the fashionable
New Jersey seaside resort of Sea-
bright. The carpenter, is Jim Allgor,
who is the only poor' man living in
Rumson-road, the most exclusive,
thoroughfare in * that aristocratic
summer resort, and he has "revolutionary'* and Socialistic views," which
aro very offensive to his millionaire
neighbors.. The carpenter is -one of
Soabrighl's oldest inhabitants and he
purchased  the ground  on which  his

"House stands many years SgoT
When the big Wall street men made
their headquarters ,in Seabright they
strongly objected' io having a carpenter for a neighbor, and thought it
would be an easy matter to remove
him. Now tliey have realized their
mistake, for Allgor was proof against
the almighty, dollar," and "when they
tried to buy him out said that'he
was-very well suited where he was.
Amongst tho inhabitants of Rumson-
road are Messrs. George Jay Gould,
II. M. Alexander, Stanley Fargo,
Ogdcn Mills Reid, Jacob Schiff,,and
Louis Wolff (of the big Wall street
house of Kuh'n, Loeb nnd Company),
and when they erected thoir palatial
"summer cottages" Allgor was not
slow to turn their presence to account, They wero horrified when he
built a bungalow on his property,
which ho used for tho sale of Icecreams, He did a vory profitable
businoss with lho servants from tlio
big houses, and added to tho enormity of his offenso by erecting a huge

'After.an absence' of over three
years,* during whicli time , he * has
filled the; position of Canadian government em'migration agent at Glasgow, Scotland, Malcom Mclntyre,
formerly immigration agent and customs officer in Strathcona, returned
to that city' yesterday on ' the .'afternoon train from the south,
Mr. Mclntyre is making, a tour of
Canada from the Atlantic to the Pacific with a, view to. better informing himself with regard to conditions
here which he realizes have changed
to a great extent during the three
years of his absence in Scotland. The
knowledge whicli he will-gain of
Canada and the conditions offered
to the.British immigrant at the present date,- he will, be able to use to
good advtantage. in connection with
the work of his department at Glasgow, which he declares is increasing
at a remarkably rapid rate.
To a Journal reporter, who interviewed him in Strathcona last evening, Mr. Mclntyre stated that 30,000
would be a very conservative estimate of the number . of Scotch settlers who will leave * their native
shores for Canada. during the year
"Last year the, number of emigrants
frem Scotland to Canada was 14,000
and while the number Is considerably
more than doubled this year, the emigrants are also of a -class better
suited to the conditions that are to
be, met with in the Dominion," said
Mr. Mclntyre, who is -in a position
to speak with authority with regard
to the class of settlers, being an, inspector of all' the steamships that
carry emigrants from the port of
Glasgow to Canada.
"Canada is draw'ng settlers from
practically all parts of Scotland," he
continued. "A short time ago I conducted an investigation for the ^purpose ■ of ascertaining if there were
any districts in which.emigration to
Canada was unknown and found that
while the.movement is practically
general, the districts lying along the
west coast are furnishing the smallest
number' of prospective settlers to
The Government's Policy.
Speaking of the policy of the Can-'
adian department* of immigration as
carried out in the.office at Glasgow,
Mr. Mclntyre stated that no settlers
are encouraged to come to Canada,
but those who are willing to go onto
land and develop the agricultural resources of the country. While a number of artisans and skilled workmen
of practically every, class are., constantly making their way to Canada,
they come of their own free will, not
department. On the other hand, booking agents are offered inducements to
book for passage.men who are willing
to take up farm work in Canada, and
women who arc willing to enter domestic service, and information with
regard to the agricultural possibilities
oi the Dominion is freely supplied,
Men wlio..are willing to take up employment on railway construction
work are also encouraged to emigrate.
Mr. Mclntyre stated that just at
present a largo number of people
from Australia are touring Great
llritain doing, publicity work for. their
own country ns they proceed. As yet
Australia has not as large a numbor
of emigration ngoncles established
ns has Canada, but Australians are
becoming rapidly alert to the possibilities of publicity, and aro diverting a large number of emigrants from
tho Hritish Isles to their shores.
"As yot, however, Canada stands
first in-tho "minds of the Britisher
In search of opportunities," said Mr.
Mclntyre, "and wo of tho emigration
offices In tho old coimtry, realize that
our problem is to keep tho tide of
emigration turned this way, to keop
Canada In tho minds' of tho people,"
As a particular instanco of the zenl
of tho Australian in recruiting Bottlers for his own country, ho told of
a visit of tho Promlor of West Aus-
trnlln to Glasgow, accompanied by
