luted to furnish relief "for those^of our memberB who. were oa strike. .'. "•
Recently wage contracts h^ve been secured that'-givea employment to about Beventy-five thousand of our

The Mayor and Aldermen,
Fernie, B. C. *. *
I much regret the exigency .which
compels me to address you as I herewith do. I wlah to preface my remarks by" stating that I propose to
deal with public Issues and that, in-
a forensic way;-
It 1b needless for me to point-out
to you that for some time past, and
more especially at present, public attention haB been*almost wholly directed to civic affairs. I beg to Incorporate herewith my "letters to the
mayor ae such, dated tho 29th of
June and 2nd of July, which no doubt
you will find in the city office. I had
written,'''aa you perhaps know, a letter to The ' Ledger, criticizing' cer-

to you. . ,,-*,-
Last week I bad a pleasant interview with the mayor, and as a result-
I left him feeling that   the    great '
trouble and agitation .which have affected tho people* could bo honorably
bridged by* carrying Into effect the
suggestion which   I " had mado and
which I  understood,  though I  may
have misunderstood, the council would
bo willing'to adopt, namely, that a
committee   of   ratepayers, including
myself,  Bhould  bo  appointed  to  go
Into nil clvio mnttors about which so
much talk had boon Indulged In.   I"
thought thon, ns I do now, thnt I am
not exaggerating tho sontlmont of tbo
ratepayers when I say that unless tho",
council vory soon tako tho pooplo Into ■•'
tliolr confldonco, n* commission of Inquiry will bo sought.   My Idea wnB    *
that tho commltteo of .citizens auch '
as I havo mentionod would avert any
ouch statutory inquiry.
, The mayor vory proporly took th'o
poiiHlon when I was tnllclng to hlm
thnt he, could not-disclose, tho audit-
or'fl report . tlio public until ho hnd
laid It, boforo tho council, which
would bo tjoito uu last Thursday. I
hnvo aiwnyn undonitood nnd always
will undorHtnnd that to lay nny mat-
tor boforo tho council Is to plnco it
boforo tlio public.
As n re-suit at tho Intorvlnw rd-
forrod to I, In good faith, endeavored to HiipprosH ngitntlon. which I
IhoiiRltt host could bo dono by delaying for tho nonco tho road lug *i
two lottors which I mid roused to tho

Rev. Dr.   S.'.D.  Chown,- recently**, ap.-
..ipointed associate - general, auperittten-"
"■".-dent of. the' Methodist' church. -„' He
■referred to.tlie- parables;of ;tbe .Bible
-as .full, o£  social  teaching 7and, also
,' -Xo the sermon on. the, mount"'   Mentioning .the.'various.-beiiefs taught by
- socialism,-Dr.*.. Chown .Confined him-
7 self to the--orthodox or,Marxian ao-
-•dialism; which in late years had-given
such a definite turn to economic Jaws.
^Certain.'-socialistic  beliefs  held .that
'■ the public --should/control -everything
•connected wltSTtlTe-^manufacliiriiig7of"
tlie-c'omraodities.ol.life, and that.the
-world's progress must be made-thru
'• the- struggle . of "-antagonistic classes.
In comparison he held up tlie teaching
, of Christianity which • is so, full • of
impartiality. Dr.'Chown bolleved that
the single  tax  system  would be. ac-
".cepted eventually,    but- only after a
• modification of its present condition.

Christianity vs. Socialism.
.* In differentiating Christianity from
socialism, lie said the point of view
of the latter was 'material, and man
was regarded primarily as an economic factor, whoso object was to produce worldly success, Christianity's
main viewpoint on the ■ other hand
was spiritual, and the chief purpose
of man. to produce character and gen-
' oral woll    being ..among • his fellow
, "Socialism la, dependent on law and
* environment, but Christianity Is gaining through tho production of character. Christ holds man definitely
to his social responsibility, .nnd socialism In general will bo. suicidal ns
long as lt falls to'oncourngo tho nee-
ORslty for development of character,"
Hiiid Dr. Chown, who referred to tlio
Gorman socialistic theory that If throo
. hours work dully were performed by
all men botwoon thn ages of 18 and
•IS, it would be sufflclont to -secure
tlio nocoHBltloH for tho world. Tlo
conslderod that tho worst calamity
that could bofnll humanity waB that
mon Hhould ho saved by work,
. * "Tho Church of Christ ennnot bollovo In tho goldon rulo," assorted
Dr. Chown, "It stnndH for prlnolplo
nnd If tho outworking -.mashes com-
petition It must po, nnd \t Dw outworking flinftfihoH. Boclnllsm, then soclnlism must go, .If soclnlism ox-

Following - the • Quebec convention,
1909,' 2,000 copies. ot_ the "Second
Report" (immigration)0 were circulated in Britain among labor mem-
i ors of parliament, trades union leaders, trades councils, and prominent
men ln other "capacities; 500 of* these
reports being taken' care of-by the
secretary* of .the British' Labor party
and'distributed to 500 delegates "present "at their convention .'at- Newport
in January., last. -  .'-- ; V  '"'   *■"',;
Copies- of* our reportsJ and of the
Salvation • Army ' circular - were -' also
mailed 'to 'workers' representatives
and - officials' hi" the overseas dominions; and some*" interesting statements
are to hand by way'--of reply.' -'From
our **. correspondence"'there would ' ap-'
pear to.bo.no.danger of other dominions being cajoled into accepting the
attentions--of 'this bureau in Itheii-
■•.world-wide.-hunt after'profit. •
- We would ■ again *• take the opportunity ■ of reminding-the. delegates to
this 1910- convention* of-the force of
the-remark* 'of the-Salvation-Army
agent, two -years . ago • when ■ her, depreciated-. ;>our . -attacks- .upon '.their
method's, aiid stated- "that.''we ought
to get'after the governments' which
render tlieir' operations possible." So
long .-as the: • Dominion government
contributes to the* cost of running the
London offices of-the Salvation-Army,
and- so''long  as the.various .provin-
certain cities .lislng, a sewage polluted" water" thefdeath\rate from typhoid

pi^:". l7"£7-.*v- y\ ' *•*■■■-.*
..^Generally* spewing, there , are two
'Methods•■•In'-usS'for tbe filtration of
publ'.c water supplies: they are known
as the' "Slow    Sand" filtration and
"Mechanical" filtration.   In .the former type the water filters through beds
of "sand*" and gravel - at "varying "rates
of from two to five million7gallons
per acre every 24,hours, according^to
the character of lhe water.    In* mfr
chanical filtration,    a 4* precipitate.- is
first added of filtration being many
|imes  more  than *Jn-Jthe. slow  sand'
filters.       '   '.       y •;    .''-,"    .-'   „   ■.
The type of filter besf^sulted' for
any particular water must be carefully considered   before   adoption by. a
municipality,   and   this' can, only , be
done by a competent sanitary • engineer.   When either-system' "can*",be
used,' it resolves itself into a question
of, primary   cost   and   annual   maintenance.   The slow sand filters.cost,
approximately, $300,000 • per,, ..mlilion
gallons of the daily consumption and
about. 10'per cept. of this,per annum
fqr.. operating; -.while    a   mechanical
filter costs, about one-fourth, and, Jf
carefully operated, a high degree of
efficiency, as regards purification1 can
be obtained,   This is weli exemplified
at- Chatham,   Ont.,   where  for   some
years filters of this latter class have
been in operation, the water treated
being that of the river Thames.   - -

from ordinar-y ca;*b.on filament' incandescent ".lamp is" that the" filament is
constructed ,T of    "tungsten" instead' of
been proved that they use only-about
one-third as" much" current 'as '■'&" carbon*• lamp to produce a' light -of ,the

"three timej^'as  much),, but" this  is
counterbalanced by the1 saving in-current effected.    Thoy "have one weak
point * however,. That , Is; -the ease
with' which the delicate tungsten fila-
'ment. is   broken.    On   this   account
great care-has to- be1 exercised in installing 'them, and it is for this reason,  too  ,that they  cannot   be  economically used as portable lamps. Yet,
when carefully handled, they.have a
long    lease    of    life. . - In 7 England','
whore they aro used -more extensively than here, It Is quite "common for
thom to last 3,000 hours, and one Instance is on record whero a tungsten
lamp burned  continuously   for  over
15,000 hours,   liven when allowance
Is,made for moro frequent breakage,
the  tungsten,,lamp *shows  a  saving
over tho carbon of about 50 per cent.

by ,. Indians . and' * halfbreeds. Now

marvelous. At tho "time of the rebellion Prince Albert was tho only

ventilation is tan excellent plan to clear away the
one and, if any of the other be existent,- hare it
properly located:  '     ' ,-,..-.---.

As an illustration -of the impression that may be
conveyed we will cite the features of a report that
came to o'u_-ears relative to Alderman Fred Johnson that ;he had sold, clothing to city officials
leaving one to imply therefrom-that • it -was a
char'ge"to" tlfe city and'.Hat in. his' capacity such
would be a contravention* .of the "Municipal
Clauses'Act:" 'Determined to find out all of the
facts, in, this case we^ri^ervicwed "the gentleman,
andiupon asking-if. lie,had sold clothing to the
civic employees he .replied that he.had, hence as
we remarked,tiien"it_ true." "Perfectly;'' was
the answer,:"but"—and here the whole aspect of
the situation'.is entirely changed. "The men who
bought the suits that-have caused so' much adverse
Ah. '-We-mention this to show that although the
trutli'may'be told'that' the, old story, "A half-
truth is worse than a whole lie" was fully exemplified in'!this instance.
. We dio Wt wisfi to be understood that there have
not-'b'eeh-acts' committed*that are-entirely blame-
lessjV'.yet.we,'do,urge upon all "to7 reserve- their
judgment-,until .the,entire,.facts: are known',', because} if"'wrdng-has-been done it may bo placed
upon'the right-party,-but if erroneous impression

be* wrouglit upon those who are entirely guiltless.
I Tho'postponement until'all evidence, is obtained
will not defer the. finding' out of those that • are
responsible for wrong-doing nnd the same timo it
may obviate the vexations heaped upon those
wrongly suspected.   . , .-
Wo sincerely .hope that the public mooting mentioned will lie hold soon and that much' good may
result therefrom, and that it may'culminate in a
thorough purging of all rumors that nro discovered
to bo without foundation and that any blame that
is to be attached to anyone will be placed on tlie
right should ore regardless of all apologists wlio
argue that the spreading broadcast" of these reports is calculated to injure the city's credit.
Inaccurate reports of. course* will have this effect, but if .tho plan referred to, bo carried "it
should bring matters to a finality and we may
obtain a clean bill of health.
, Whitewashing is'of no permanent value and-if
inislakeB have' been mado far more to.tho city's
credit will be the. manly acknowledgment of thn
samo instead of allowing thom to bo ascribed to
more unworthy motives. Healthy criticism, ovon
1 hough it bo adverse is beneficial to nil whether
individuals or in thoir collective capacities, provided, of course, tho underlying motivo is nn lion-
OHt dosiro to ascortnin tho truth, tho wholo truth,
and nothing but tho truth,

Dust Explosions din
Powder, and Gas as Causes of Explosions. -  Importance of Removing Dust.
> _t
Many Timely Suggestions Tor Allaying
the Coal Dust.   Watering is Oiie Way.
By'Franklin Bache, Fort Smith," Ark.
There seems to he a feeling that
there has.;been .something mysterious
at'-the'bottom of a, number,'of recent
colliery' explosions, * however, - it    is
sate, to .say that no explosion haSj occurred" which could not be explained
by-most coal-mining engineers.   .The
possible - sources   of   explosions aro
from explosives, gas, and coal dust.
. Explosives stored    in ' quantity' in
the mine are almost universally prohibited by law and mine rules, and
from this source there' is little danger..   An   explosive  mixture   of   gas
nnd air, the old enemy of the coal
miner, while It, is'always a lurking
danger, can bo detppl.ed with the aid
of tlio safety .lamp," and with the aid
"pf' modern ventilating' fans arid tl\e
knowledge of mine ventilation,, firedamp. I.s not allowed _p accumulate.'
Eypii, in7.nli[le'sl',making'_j_as, so,fast
tlyiC'^pJoslv/b ...mixtijres ' migb.t be
fofme^thrpugngut^the "working..in a
*^hoi*t'"t!me* through' -jn'y, failure", in
•ventilation, sucli" failure is invariably
discbuntejtl,,  by   duplicate ventilating
pl'iuits so/that.the chan.ee*..of ga§ explosions affecting whole mines, is very
.small! "The danger to] the individual
miner, "oj-'to srnall numbers working
In some section of a mine, is inherent
in the work;, and, even with safety
lamps and  well-directed  air-currents,
individuals here and    there    will' be
burned. ' The effects bf explosions of
small quantities of gas in agitating,
and  firing coal  dust,* and  tho effect
of gas in less than explosive proportions In the presence of'a blown**out
shot in a dusty mine, are matters to
lie considered under the head of dust.
Coal dust, therefore, alone remains
as an indispensable cause of great explosions.   For many years this source
of danger has'been recognized, par-
=  ticularly in the "deep mines of Great
. Britain; but it.was not until the investigation of tho Pocahontas''explo
sion in 1884 that the .subject aroused
more than theoretical interest in this
country.    Very little "has been done
here in tbe way - of    scientific and
• laboratory  inquiry  into  this  matter,
probably because   the   investigations
■ on the other side had-been thorough,
and there did not-seem to be mu'ch
.room left to better them.    The dangers, from coal dust are well known,
 and   whnt   is   neetlefl' is   some,   gnn'r.
method' of' getting' rid of the dust.
It is known also that, next to eliminating the 'dust, the best thing is to
undercut and wedge down the coal,
using no explosive whatever. If this
be impracticable, the "next best thing
is to undercut the coal and use little
explosive.'i"'"'1 .iliflt uttie as nameless'
nnd smokeless as it can be.'
For reducing " the. danger from
blown-out shots disturbing and firing
the dust, the best means js to undercut the coal, so (hat small charges
of powder will suffice, and. not, "let
tlie powder dp Uio work.!' ,,. ■"...,.
So long as tho mliior receives aii
much por ton of, mine-run coal with
80 per cent, of slack, which ho.has
shot down from tlio coal seam with
tho did only of nn excessive and dan-
.gcrous amount of explosive,'as ho gets
for a ton of mine-run coal containing
80 per cont. of lump, tho rosult of
first undercutting the coal aiid then
letting tho powder do only somo of
tlio work, ho , (being human) will
shoot off tho solid, and when he finds
that the enormous chargo of powder
,Ib dangerous to his life ho will ondoavor to make coal mining snfo (lo
him) by'Insisting thnt, tho .company

■to flro thoir own Bliots, nnd compelling operators to employ othor inmi

hygroscopic .substance, such us "calcium chloride or common- salt, has
proved fairly, efficient. _-..,, ••;
* Moistening the, air; with' steam .or

mine: is not effective. * . * •» * * - -
7 In the summer,* when the outer*iiii-
is warmer than'tlie mine, tho'cooling
of the'air as itentei's the mine quickly-causes it*to* deposit, on the roof
and elsewhere, near the intake, -the
surplus* moisture "which its lowered
temperature no longer permits it-to
carry. Hence,- a humid air-current
cannot be takon through"; the whole
■mino. .To ndd"moisture to tho air of
the  down-cast - .would  be. useless.
Iri,tlie winter,'no matter how fully
'satdrAted- the'air may be as it-enters
tUe'nlhie,''as's"oon as its-temperature
is-'raised fo that" of the workings'It
is-no longer Saturated, 'and,'.instead;
of depositing, it abeorbs-riioisture.'- In,
winter, therefore,' unless the temperature of 'the .entering air be raised
to that of- the mine at- the same time
that it* is saturated wltli moisture, lt
would be useless" to moisten it.
■ It might' pay' to heat the' air ..tb'the.

steam, jets, and .exhaust steam,5now.
'wasted • could * be' used), or*, tho "air
could be moistened* in the mine' after
it had traveled far'enouglrto acquire
the mine temperature., - y '" l
Biit both, watering tho "entries aiid
moistening the air' are subject, in
many localities, to. the' very serious
objection that the "moistened roof will
slack and fall, and 'become a "source
of danger.'   ; ■ ..- -
The best way. to' stop dust explosions is to remove the dust from all
haulage" ways that are near' enough
to' working places to be 'affected by
blown-out shots. It is"'not", .in niy
opinion, necessary to remove the dust
from ro'oms. ''The dust made in.mining and* loading the ,eoal is comparatively coarse and safe. The "dangerous material Is the impalpable dust-
made by the men, mule's.-.and cars on
the, haulage ways.

• -What*' occurs   to, me   is *" that' .the'
British  Columbia people-'are "paying
more for their coal than the*£ should,
and as it appears to me ar„e not get
ting * fair treatment_"7.
■' The only "explanation that I'tan see
in regard' to this 'state of a'ffairs-is
that the coal trust* in-San Francisco
who handle all the British Columbia
coal, is a foreign "company; and' the
shareholders,'for .lie most-part," I', understand, are "citizens of the  Unite'd"
States; therefore they have no interest lii common with our home 'people,',
and - tho  company  would * appear1' to',
have but'one aim—and ^that Is'reaching out for the almighty dollar.',   *.
What surprises' me most is the fact'
that the British' Columbia- 'parliament
or th'e dominion 'government has not
"wakened up" to what woiild' be con-'
sidered a most unsatisfactory'-state of
affairs in Britain. * 'Only a-' fe"\y -gear's
ago 'the1 British'-governnfeht' enacted
a* law establishing ari export,'.tax ou
all""coal-exported' fo foreign'countries.
This" tax has a double object in view*;
first 6fy all it was' intended- jtb prevent' so much of the very best coal
which. '-England' arid., Wales' prdduces
being exported,  andi- the' other was
tha*. the' prices within ''England and
Wales'- should be a little. lo-\ve'r tiian'
the foreign people' were able to,' get
the very best-*of coal.' '"        , '■ ■
■> You will pardon me for enforcing
my-observations in"your columns, but
I "am * strongly -'.of "the ' opinion  that
the British Columbia people are not
aware of how they are-being treated
in ■ this    coal    question,    particularly"
when, their coal is being sold about
1,000 miles away from them in a foreign   market  and, at  a  lower  price
than they- themselves hdv'e to pay." It
"seems ;td me| a most absurd ostate""of
affairs;    It is just"possible'thdf tlie
British Columbia people are so much'
taken up. with-the prosperity, which I
was'"happy'to notice during my sojourn in British'' Columbia,' that' they
are not'aware "of-what is going on'.in
the coal situation.' -.You" will" understand that my only object in placing
these facts  before, you,- is  to, show.,
that- the so-called coal trust iii San'

shots are fired' except when only'the
shot-fire'r is in the mine, the loss of
life in case of an"explosion will.b'o
reduced, If,, in addition, the firing
or any shots hi coal not undercut* be
prohibited there will practically-be no'

Sweeping the roof/sides, and floor
of iin entry for a,few-hundred ,feet
and loading tho dust out every week,

maintain "order"' in Finland, tells" the
fojlowjng.story:       -■   * /'    .,*7*.',-
Some months ago a" crime, so inhuman that the whole Finnish nation, was struck.with horror, was committed by some drunken Russian
soldiers, .who * assaulted and mnssa-
cred! a harmlo'ss' Finnish laborer' returning home fi'dm his work.
At the police Inquiry,, it wns fully
substantiated that the victim was
stabbed with bayonets and tliat ho
was a very respectable and quiet follow. Alono and unarmed, It wns impossible for hlm to defend, hlm&olf
ngalnst tlie attack of'the soldlors,
However, tho soldiers wero found
out and committed   foe „ trial.   Tjioy,
were charged with murder, but wero
acquitted/by-   the/ Russian military'
authorities.  Why?'  ItWas" stntod that
thoy hnd beon offondod by a large
crowd „of armed Flnnta nnd had klllod
tho unhappy victim In self-defense!
- Such Is tho kind  of justlco Ihnt

....    " -     POULTRY .ASSOCIATION
Our most successful -poultrymen in
all parts of -the province had proved
that, under proper • conditions and
with careful and -efficient management, .poultry raising-: Is a -paying
proposition', a more profitable industry than many, others; some of whicli
have been "boomed" for years. Those
engaged in the business of poultry-
keeping have gone through dear experiences and  have overcome  many
obtjtheir"^bwjnfsalvAtion,-. while   the
government siood aloof and the pub-
obstacles; "they have had    to   work*;
lie    were     suspicious    of    possible
profits.   '* "        *■'"*.
' But now we enter upon a new eVa
with.a   broad    and   "promising field   -.
before    us.    The    British    Columbia
Poultry association was organized for
the .benefit of. every poultryman  in
the_province.   .It   was  organised jo
strengthen.the working power of the .-
loQal associations;', it was organized
for the purpose of bringing the", government into closer touch  with, the
poultrymen'in order that the "govern-" ,
ment might be 'better, able to understand and. appreciate their needs.
It will* seek to disseminate throughout the province a thorough knowledge of _ proper methods of rearing
domestic fowl. Its chief aim .will be
to secure a more wide-spread interest in* thoroughbred poultry.' It is
also, expected"that within a' year or,
two it will told "a provinc'al poultry
show, which should prove to be one
of the largest and best in Canada.
■ Everyone interested s In poultry
should become a" member of the
Provincial Poultry association. "Mem- *
bershlp may be secured by the payment of an annual fee of $*w00, addressed to the secretary, M. A. Jull,
Victoria,!}. C. ', 7    '     .   .    '
, There are three Important reasons
for becoming a member:
' 1.—Those who join will. help" In "
building up the business of breeding," making better the business of
producing pure-bred poultry, and increasing the demand. for these products.
■ '2.7-The* association doubtless will
lead in a* movement- to place poultry
production' oft a more economical and
better- basls.and thus'-produce- better
conditions. ■ ■■*■■*.,
., 3.—The publications of the association alone will much.more-than rej.,
pay tie cost, as from .their- -t_e "Breeders' will^ learn "many"'' new.    things
.helpful .in their'own lines of", breed-
&soJ;_ -,-    "  ;. .   .'■.-      *.
*   There will shortly, be published the
first, annual report,of the.association,
which should be in the hands of all
the poultry-men"of'the"province.   This
will contain-the proceedings, of the
:convention which was-held* in August
at the time*.of tbe Vancouver- show,
as well    as    many valuable articles
.from the- loading poultry experts and
.authorities   throughout   America. - It
will .also.contain a directory of the
..poultry .breeders* of- British   Columbia. ..-.This directory-will contain the
names  and  addresses  of all- poultry
breeders who are members, with the
•varieties* a«d" the breeds of fowl they
are" breeding:    This  directory  alone
slibuld be"wo'rth: much"more than thc
annual   membership  foe,  as   in   this
way poultry breeders throughout the
touch ,with one another.   •       7 '
*   The ."Successful Poultryman is thc
official organ;-,'of' the*   B. C- P." A.
"Memberships for'the directory should
be iii'not'later,than Octob'e'r"lst',;as
the report is then going to press, and
any members who'  aro' desirous o'f
having their  breeds  of fowl  Ontorod.
in  the directory must do so' before
the 1st of October.       '"        . *',

Harry Stubbs, who is the traveling
representative of the Eureka Coal
company, a recently developed property at Taber, Alta., is in town for a
few days in the interests of his employers and will, offer some special
inducements to prospective Investors
to buy shares in the company." ■<
Quite an excitement, has been
caused iri the Creston district by the
discovery of placer gold deposits In
the .bed of the Goat river. For somo
time past Ira Beam, old-time- gold
seeker and miner, has been prospecting this stream, and last week, following, on,the. finding of some excellent showings, he canie jnto town
and filed on two claims located abovo
the Goat river canyon. ,-.-
* When the news leaked out, eome-
thing in tho.nature of a rush occur-
red to the scene of these finds, and
since Saturday last over ,20 claims
have been pegged ,by. would-be, exploiters of the Goat.river bonanza.
We have seen .some very promising
samples of gold washed from these
claims, and If these values can be
shown to exist throughout, there
should be a good thing, made in. work-,
ing these0 claims.    "
The owners intend to form a syndicate and will obtain a report from a
'competent'outside expert as to wheth-
,er the'claims'will pay on .the capital
required :ito-.exploit.them,, and^s, to
the best .means, to be adopted^to. re-,
cover„Uiegol"d.7 Pending the''result
of these" iavestlgatlorii',* it^-would be
well for the~pufcJic n6t//to get too
much excited over tte^'flnds... There
