OPENS IN
FERNIE
CHIEF JUSTICE CLEMENT ON THE
BENCH—A LIGHT DOCKET-
MURDER CASE.
ITALIAN FOUND GUILTY
SENSATIONAL CHARGE BY JUDGE
.ON SHERWOOD HERCHMER'S
ACTION FOR DEFENCE.
Ii    -
H:     '-1
On Wednesday   of   this week the
court opened with Justice Clement on
the bench and Mr. Moore,' K.C., representing the crown.
The most Important case, * on   the
' docket is .that of Enrico Francisciello,
, an Italian, from Campo Basso, charged with the murder of a: fellow countryman named. Petrucci at Jaffray on
-July 16th.    -'-'''.
From the. ovidence brought forward
it appears "that as a result of overindulgence in fiery liquids, a dispute
arose in the section house where
these men wero living over' a trivial
20 cents, and from words it was an
easy and quick transition.to blows.
Mayor    Sherwood   Herchmer'  was
.counsel for the defense.
Just how the murder was commit-
, ted has not been ascertained as there
_ were no eye-witnesses to the stabbing
as far as known, but it was elicited
in the examination of the various wit-
. nesses that    bad    blood  existed  between the two principals.   When ..the
body    of - Petrucci * was   discovered
■tliere were several gashes found upon
**■ it, but the one that produced death
in Pernio' if the mayor of the city
appears for.persons charged with offences, and as happened this morning
cross-examines the chief of police; it
seems ,to me that the outside public
will simply, curl "its lip in scorn when
administration of justice in Fernie is
talked of'.' '*
. Mr. Herchmer—It is well known
that in many cases, against the liquor
license act for instance, in whicli I
have been retained and have refused
to act; if I am wrong in this case it
is purely becauso I had not given the
matter proper thought.
The Court—I accept your statement
unqualifiedly. But 1 think tho only
thing I can do in this case Is to adjourn the trial and allow other counsel to be retained.   .._
Thc trial was therefore adjourned
until Friday morning to give opportunity for other counsel to-be secured
and ,to prepare to carry on the defence.
Tho Court—And I think you should
decline all criminal business, even
outside the town, because the outside
police are brought into close relationship with the authorities in the city;
.if 'you aspire-to the chief magistracy
I think you will have to forego your
criminal practice. ,.
TEA   ROOMS.
The .Palm restaurant is inaugurating a new idea in restaurant keeping by,way of tea*rooms. The,opening event is announced for (Saturday
(today), andis in charge of the Ladies
Benevolent society, when tea will be
served from 4 to G. . Mr. Waylett's
offer is doubtless greatly appreciated
for "we are told all the proceeds of
this opening will be turned over to
the Benevolent society. The venture
is a new one so far as Fernie is
concerned, but'we think it ..should
prove successful." ,,"

The prisoner, who is of exceptionally
small stature even for a southern
Italian although giving his age as 23:;
does not* look more than 19 and was
- quite self-possessed while the case
was being tried. ,.
On Wednesday night the jurors
were placed In*- the-•.-■custody-, bf the
sheriff.  *
,Tho judge in his summing up practically instructed tho jury that in
view of the evidence given that It
was-their duty to weigh carefully and
with duo deliberation that their veiy
diet would mean either that this
man would bo considered guilty of
wilful murder or else acquitted. Tho
jury, after, a long session, returned „to
tho council chamber and, to tho surprise of mnny thoir vordlct was'manslaughter. Sentence hns not yet beeii
imposed.

scale was..
Another,, thing that   has    caused a j
great  deal of- dissatisfaction  is  that
the scale when'agreed to by the convention  was not, submitted to a referendum   before   being   signed.     Our
district officers    have    preached ' the
referendum    aiid    Organized    MeCullough when addressing a mass-meeting

or authority to sign up an agreement j.
binding the men  to work without it I BUSINESS

Under the circumstances the miners |

MINING    NEWS    FROM    MONTANA
Roundup, Mont., Oct. 10,  1910.
Editor   Mine" Workers'   Journal.    ' ' -
Seldom seeing anything in the columns of the Journal from this field I
thought I would' wj-lte ■ a few lines.
' Prof. I-I. von Starck's new book,
"Thirty Years' Observation of Eczema," contains much that will interest
the layman as well as tho scientific
reader.
"In July, 1908," he writes, "there
appeared at the Institute'a woman,
23 years old, with hair unusually interesting. It was abundant and long,
but upon close examination two distinct growths of hair were seen.
"She said that up to four months
previous her hair was thin, straggling
and brittle, with a tendency to fall
out. Dandruff and eczema of the
scalp had developed, which she treated with a simple solution made by
dissolving two ounces of quintone in
one-half pint of hot water—let cool.
"The result of the treatment was
that the eczema and dandruff were
eradicated, and apparently the hair
follicles were revivified, for new hair
appeared.
"For years I recommended quintone
in any case of eczema on any part of
the   body."—Chicago   Examiner.

VICTORIA, Oct. 2G.—A large fire
involving a loss of close upon half a
million dollars is raging in Government street, Victoria's principal artery.
Up to the present it has destroyed
the ■ David Spencer Limited building,
the largest department store. Through
a weak water pressure the brigade
is unable to cope with the outbreak..
The Five Sisters block, the Times
building, the Driard hotel, the Royal
and Dominion banks as well' as a
number of real estate offices are
threatened. .The wind is from the
north and is carrying showers of
sparks over the southern section of
the city. Buildings hundreds of yards
away from the outbreak have caught
fire. , Stores within, the fire section
have been dismantled of ' all then-
portable values and; crowds of people
are carrying trays of jewelry and
other goods to places of safety. Tho
Victoria theater which is .within tho
fire zone, closed its performance. The
streets ' are crowded with excited
throngs. Spencer's block, where the
fire started, has now collapsed.

FAGE TWO
THE DISTRICT LEDGER, FERNTE. B. C„ OCTOBER 29, 1910.
Trades and Labor
Congress to B. C.
Victoria, B. C. July 27, .1910.
To the Officers nnd Members of. the
Twenty-sixth Convention of Trades
and Labor Congress of Canada:—
Gentlemen:    The executive committee for the province of British Columbia submits for your consideration the
following report for 1900-1910:
.   Many matters of importance respecting   the   welfare   of   organized   labor
in British Columbia have engaged the
.attention- of the provincial executive.
The formation of a Provincial Federation of Labor together with the
amalgamation   of   the   United   Mine
'Workers of America and the Western
Federation of Miners bids fair lo
mark a long stride in the onward
march of organized'labor in .this most
westerly province The combining of
the last two mentioned forces for mutually protective measures should be
productive' of good  results.
The expediency of lhe formation of
a Provincial Kedcration of Labor has,
.for some length of time, been a ipies-
tion engaging the ^attention and commanding the most serious consideration of the members of organized labor in this province. The frequent
discussions arising therefrom culminated in the calling of a convention
by the Vancouver Trades and Labor
Council after receiving the opinion of
the different unions .and central
bodies throughout tho province relative to the advisability of the forma-
. tion of such a provincial body., The
convention was held in Vancouver,
May 2, 27 delegates being in attendance, and by a unanimous vote the
new organization was launched. The
policy of the federation wns by unanimous agreement, to be based on strict-
' ly international trade union principles.
The matter of securing a charter was
■laid over till after the convention of
the Trades and Labor Congress was
held,' in order to. permit, if deemed
advisable by the members of the
convention, of its constitution being
amended to provide for the chartering of such bodies.
Through the judicious distribution
among non-affiliated unions with the
* congress of the circulars sent out by
the executive council, an effort was
made to arouse the interest and enlist
the sympathy and support through affiliation with the congress of such
unions.
The information supplied by the ex-
ecuiive 'council re legislative matters
at Ottawa was commendable in tho
extreme. By being'kept In touch, particularly, with the progress made on
A. Verville's Eight-hour Bill and Senator Belcourt's bill (C. C.C.), i'n conjunction with the Trades and,Labor
councils . of Victoria and Vancouver
"Tne—cirsrr'f-oi*-"labor-was-presented7
through writing, to the - committee
having the former. bill under consideration, and an effective protest
was, together wiih organized, labor all
over the Dominion, ottered against
the latter.
Early in February when the provincial legislature was in session a
largo delegation representing or-
ganized labor from Victoria, Vancouver and Xew Westminster, bended
by the provincial executive committee, memorialized the government,
urging I he en nel men 1. into law of tho
diff-.reiit sections-.embodied In the
memorial. For fully .two houi;s the
delegation was accorded a most, respectful hearing, Tlie bearing of the
members of the cabinet towards the,
delegailon was openly frnnk and
courteous. The Interest evidenced by
th<jm  In  the  matters presented  was
* greater than usual on such occasions,
Tlie following* is the memorial presented and the premier's reply thereto:'   ■
"To the lion. Richard-McBride, Premier, and Members of the Exocutlvo
Council,
"Gentlemen: ' We, (ho undersigned
members or tho British Columbia
Executive or the Trades and'Labor
Congress of Canada, and representatives or Organized Labor In Ihls province, beg leave to submit for your
earliest consideration and favornblo
action  tho  following  manors  touch-
ber leases be refused and restricted

"11. The amendments'to School Act
submitted by Vancouver school board.
"12. Extension of^ the free text-
hook principle to Include'' all, school
supplies,    ,
"13. The st-Mct enforcement of the
Steam-boiler Inspection Act and no
amendments made with tho view of
reducing* the' qualifications required
for engineers.

coal mines, lumber industries, telephones, and all public utilities.

ment with the British Columbia executive, are to be congratulated. It was
freely admitted to the chairman of
executive, by* members of the government, that never, before had a delegation handled the subject matter more
ably than on this occasion. These admissions emphasize the necessity of
tlie same class of men—constituting
the delegation—to be in a. position,
through united action by the wage-
workers at tho ballot box, to enact
measures in"the interest of the working class into law, Instead of mem-.
orializing any government with most,
unsatisfactory results. '

I regret that I have been unable

I beg to state as follows:
"With reference to sections 1 and 2,

has not been found possible to* abolish

that, without such tax the great majority of Asiatics would escape taxation altogether.

done little acts or duty to the organization as an officer, member of a
committee, or if they have been a
member of organization for eight

Charles Garnqg, international board
member    ancl , former ' secretary   of
Michel local No. 2334, was in town on
official  business _tb.is" week  for' the
first time since "bis lively experiences
in   West   Virginia.    His   companion
who was assaulted by a bunch of corporation paid thugs, is now ..completely  recovered  from  the  severe. handling he received.    The actual  condition  in  the  Virginia  coal  fields   are
'simply past description. The coal com-
"pnnies, in view of the towns all bping

Bohemia and  other  South  European
countries.   They paint in vivid colors
tho   great  advantage  awaiting  them
and  these  people being  Ignorant of
the actual  conditions  accept., the offers with feelings of jubilation.
Once they have arrived at deslina-
.. tion and become dissatisfied, they are

of a bill of transportation as the expenses of railroad fare, etc., are all
charged against them and thus they

slaves,   If they do try. to evade payment arrest follows aiid as the company owns all the tools of power, it
can be readily understood' that these
poor victims are so firmly enmeshed
that escape is practically impossible.
The Fairmont   Consolidated,   oper-
' ating about 70 mines with all of the
. latest  and   most   modern   appliances
for winning coal and exploiting prop-
.  erties where the seams'-are seven and
eiglit feet thick, with excellent roof,
can quickly transform a raw laborer
into a profit-making miner.   Whatever
so-called labor laws are on the statute books are valueless' becauso their
legal - representatives  take  particular
pains to see that there is no penalty
clause  attached  and  thero  is* no  organization  to  enforce  the  demands.
Again if a miner makes more than $2
a day-there Is" ah excellent system of

■Such is the state of affairs in the
• old Dominion state that, it* is impos-
... siblo for anyone to effect an organi/a*
along the boundaries and along the
lines. of tbe railway" passing through
the reserves. Some. of these guards
are" made by burning the * grass and
other herbage at the -season when the
snow has disappeared from, the surrounding districts and before it, has
gone from the forest, so that there is
no danger to the latter. Ploughed
guards are also made. Roads are being constructed iu the reserves, which
not only .make it possible to get men
to a fire more quickly' in order to
fight it, but 'also serve to slop small
fires and iu case of larger fires give
a. base from which to "backfire.".
Special attention has also been given
to the problem presented by fires
arising from the ,* construction and
operation of railways. The patrol'
along the route of the G. T, P. during
its construction west of Edmonton
has beon very successful. ■ During the
two years of construction work .not
one serious fire hus occurred along
the right of way. The prevention of
fires along tlie railway due to sparks
from engines is another ven**/ serious"
matter, ln some places in tlie forest
reserves the railways havo been 'compelled to make fire-guards along their
right of way.   Efforts are also being
manded that; it would remove some

GRAND FORKS, N. D., Oct. 21.—
Chairman James J. Hill and President Louis Hill, of the Great Northern, passed through Grand Forks last
night en route to Superior., President
Hill lost no time in calling attention
to a matter of vital interest to the
people of Nortli Dakota, speaking of
the fuel situation, he said: "The people of the northvvest and particularly
North-Dakota, have laid in* a smaller
supply of fuel this year than in the
las: few years and unless they change
their tactics, some ono is going- to
freeze. It is a physical imossibility
for the railways to get coal into this
country fast during the severe winter
weather and there is every indication
that the present ■ winter will be
severe. There have been several mild
.winters during tho past few years
and people have become careless."

■       . o
When the., annual conference of the
Miners'' Federation of Great Britain
opened at Edinburgh, Mr.- Enoch Edwards, M. P., president, was accompanied on the. platform by R. Smillie,
president of'the Scottish Miners' Federation. It was reported that there
were 167 delegates," and that 600.327
men were represented in the union.,
Mr. Edwards said one of the prob:
lems -that was, puzzling the world at'
the moment, was how best to adjust
the relations between' employersf''and
workmen. It would-be agreed that it
%a__nnlcir_etierr:-Tf"_hey coulcnioTf
—to adjust those differences ,by "conciliation.* (Cheers.) It was ' much
better to discuss' the question at issue
across the table, and it was much
easier to do that now than it was 20
years ago. It would be a great reflection on the intelligence and common sense of employed and employer
if those great differences could not
be settled without strife, strikes, and
stoppages, nijd warfare, of that kind.
(Cheers.)' The more he studied-and
understood the importance of the
question" the more strongly he folt tho
importance of preserving the peaco.
No man could talk glibly of strikes
and stoppages if he realized the misery and horror thoy brought In their
train.
A resolution was' movod oii bohalf
of tho Scottish* min orn by Mr. Robert
"Far more demoralizing than even
poverty in its influence upon the
workingman, is the insecurity of his
position, the necessity of living upon
wages from hand to mouth, thnt in
short which*' make a proletarian of
him.
"The smaller* peasants are usually
poor and often 'suffer want, but they
are less' at the mercy of accident;
they have at least something secure.
The proletarian, who has nothing biit
his two hands, who'consumes today
what earned yesterday, who is subject to every possible chance, and has
not the slightest guarantee for being
able to earn the barest necessities
of life, whom every crisis, every whim
of his employer may deprive of bread,
this proletarian is placed in the most
revolting, inhuman positidn conceivable for a human being,
"The slave is assured of a bare
livelihood by the self:interest of his
master, the serf has at least a scrap
of land* on which to live; each has,
at worst ,a guarantee for life itself.
But the proletarian must depend upon
himself alone, and is yot prevented
from so applying his abilities to be
ablo to rely upon them.
, "Everything that' the proletarian
can do to improve liis position,,is but
a "drop in thc ocean compared with
floods of varying chances lo which he
is exposed, over which he has not tlie
slightest control. He is the passive
subject of all possible combinations
of circumstances, and must count himself fortunate when he has saved his
life even for a short .time; and his
character and "way of living are natur-
ally. shaped by these condjiJons.

they have got to-be pointed, out-, to
the rank and file "as I think ihat every
member of the United Mine. Workers
of America is intelligent enough to
know whether a man has rendered
any service and help to the organization or not, and whether his motives
were the success of the organization!''
or whether it was prejudiced against
the officers that are holding responsible positions in the international and
district and are striving hard to better , your condition. However, Mr.
New Aspirant % aiid Booster, if you
think that our present officers are not
capable nor up to your would-be

with your ability, if any. Show to
them? Be a brother according to'*the
oath you take and not a knocker.
It seems queer being so good and
virtuous that none of you never point
nor tell us of any good act our present officers have done. LDo you think
that the.rank and .file-of the United
Mine Workers are blind enough not
to see your motives, and the depth of
your manhood? We, the members,
feel sometimes the great responsibility on our national president- leading* an army of over 300,000 without
counting the wives and family, "and

THE AFTERMATB7 0F THE ELECTION.
TTt rE fought   a   straight   fight   and   have no
apologies to offer for so doing.
" W. R, Ross received the endorsation of the voters
and goes down to Victoria as the Minister of Lands
and the representative of the interests that so ably
supported him. While our opponents were rejoicing over their victory, strange to say, we, likewise were jubilant and the cause need no longer
be a source of perplexity to those who marvelled
thereat.
Onr contention has ever been tliat between the
two old parties the difference was merely one of
tweedledee _and twce"dlcdum, and although some
have refused to accept this as correct the voting
together "with tlie remarks of tlie successful candidate now leave no room for dispute; hence hereafter the issue is clearly one between thc two
classes.  , •
'While we make this statement' it is not our intention to leave it without elucidating more clearly what we mean by Liberal. The Liberals who
are of the old school, with! but few exceptions,
voted for Mr. Ross, but. those of advance tendencies who are really not Liberals but Radicals
, or Democrats, but have not yet-reached the point
when they can accept in toto the truth of Socialist jihilosophy voted against the present administration rather.than for the Socialist candidate.
They are now no longer able to remain with either
the Liberal or.the Conservative party and may be
considered in the'liglil of either Free Lances*'or
Independents,
importance of efficient organization and the need
for paying closer attention to the voters' list.
Several attempts at illegal practices were frustrated and some of those who' committed breaches
of the law will be brought before the competent
authorities.    -
■An information has already been laid, against
one Thomas-Dcnnison for having voted at East
Wardner after being duly sworn and then at Jaffray ' where he was likewise sworh, consequently
adding perjury to repeating. , There are several
other instances of wrong doing which will be
brought forward just" as soon as all the particulars
arc in- our possession. It is a total matter of indifference as tp .whom they may have voted for and
if there he any way of aiding in putting a stop to
these corrupt methods we intent to hew to the line
no matter where,ihe chips may fall. Any person
guilty of these practices merits the condemnation
of all parties and if-expediency Ijo allowed "to interfere we can.never expect that they'will cease as
theii the retort is in ado "That's all well and good
hut your party is equally guilty."
This campaign lias been fruitful already as man")'
who had heretofore not heard... or if thoy did hear,
not heed what Socialist philosophy really meant
obtained a clearer **understanding * last. Saturday
night, when the Miners' opera house was crowded
and many Lurned away unable to hear the exposition made in simple and lucid language by J. II.
llawthornthwaile.
TAG  DAY  IN  CHICAGO.
^iliri-efereiice to "tlie various claims as (o~
losses or p:ains by both parties, wc will leave that
for'those who-delight to indulge in theorizing 1o
figure out the case of themselves as it is much
Ilie same kind of a problem as the one that was
given us years ago,'viz.: When the hands of a
clock point io 3:45 and it strikes 11 and you know
'by your own watch that it is half past five, what
lime will it bo a week hence if the clock gains
12 1-2 minutes a day when the haivds indicate 1 :2...
■ For those, however, thnt enjoy mental gymnastics
wo will propound tlio following problem.
At the last, election there wore Ihreo, candidates
aud the total list of vol ors was 2,7fi0 out of which
tliQi-e wore 1,800 who voted, whereas nt the recent
eli-clion Ihero, were but two candidales and llio
total poll was 1,.0O of which Ross received SfiO
and Bonnott fill, therefore did'the Conservatives
gain or did the Socialists bocauso of the. doorcase
in tho voting strength and the el im bullion of ono
factor?
This brief campaign lias boen of inonleuiiblo
bonefil lo tho Socialists as il has shown Ihoni tho
«T
IIOU shalt not bear false witness against
thy neighbor."
We would strongly advise Missioncr Knight.,who
has been spending a short time at Wardner, to
study the full meaning of the above-quoted text.
In one of his lectures he is reported to havo belched
forth a string of abuse against Eugene V. Debs
aiid expressed his views as to where this,"gallant
fighter for the working class should be housed,
viz., behind the bars.
The entire community of the home town of Debs,
Terre Haute, Ind., regardless of political or religious affiliations, admire and respect one whom
tliey have termed "their most honored townsman"
and yet this gentleman (!) of the cloth attempts
by slanderous methods to belittle a man whose
entire life has been spent on the- battle' field -of
labor against the injustices inherent in the present
system. If abuse, slander and vilification constitute the weapons of proselytizing of the would-be
teacher of religion (!) they most assuredly will be
found ineffective in this section of the west among
those who respect men who are men regardless of
their beliefs. We understand that from Wardner,
B.C., it is his intention to visit Frank, Alta., where
it is.to be hoped he will refrain from the indulgence
in such reprehensible tactics as characterized-his
•eported, Wardner~addre'sses
Argument, even if based on false premises, often
affords an enjoyable mental recretation but slander and abuse themselves indicate the weakness
of the cause which the user is supposedly advocating and can be* likened unto u boomerang.
By Caroline A'. Lowe.
. With eyes opened wide in bewildered astonishment; eight beautifully
gowned women, tag in hand, gazed
helplessly at a poor little working
girl, trembling with indignation before them.      .'      .. ,7
Tag me! Tag me! No, you can't
tag me: Why should I give you my
hard-earned money? Look at you!
The price of that willow plume would
clothe me foi; a year; that tailor-made
gown I helped to make. Miss Fitchie.
Oh, I know who you are—it's your
father,_thai with 201* other- rich employers, • went to Springfield last
spring to fight a bill presented by
five poor working girls. All we asked
was an eight-hour day for women and
children; but because you bad lo have
silk underwear and hobble skirts and
motor cars, your father fought us to
the death. Some' of the legislators
were in sympathy with us, and had
almost'promised us a square deal, but
he bought 'em off—and , we lost.
Every day thousands of women and
children aro at thoir slave tasks before daylight until long* afler dark for
you—that you may live in idleness
and luxury.
What's that? You say that you
are sorry for us! That labor is honest, and that you respect us. Respect
us? You despise us; you look with
contempt upon us.' If you respect us,
why don't you respect our organizations? Where's the Union Label on
this tag? Why do you insult honest
labor by patronizing scab shops? If
you respected us you would respect
the only,'means we have of escaping
from vile, demoralizing charity. Your
churches and charity organizations
refuse to recognize our union shops
and ignore our union label, thereby
aiding our employers in. keeping us
in poverty rather than aiding us in
our liberation from the insult of
charity. •
If you were .truly sorry for the-
■wretched conditions of today, youJd
investigate wherein the wrong exists,
Is it fair to make us work ten hours
a day, six days a week, throughout
the year, piling up great.wealth, only
to take it away" from us? You
divide this wealth into two piles, one
four times as long as the other. And
then you few rich people take the
big pile and leave the little one for
us millions of working peaple—and wc
made it all! Then you're not satisfied -with forcing us to give up tho
big,pile to-you—you stand around on
stroet corner's, smiling at us so friendly like,,and beg from us the little pile
left for tis to'live upon.
Not begging it for*yourselves? You
are helping our poor little, orphan
boys? What, do you know about the
poor little orphans? I'm an orphan—
,my two .little brothers are orphans—
yes,' and in that very, institution
you're begging for. Why '" arc we
orphans, Miss Fitchie? Because your
father wouldn't let the men lake the
SPANISH AFFAIRS.
CCOT.DTNG to recent exchanges it would appear Ihat although the striko of Ihe iron
minors in lhe Bilbao region has boon settled by the
men gaining their objoct that.there is likely to bo
anothor trouble growing out of the mining'concessions in Morrocoo with the Riffs. This is the conflict which was so bitterly opposed by the people
of Barcelona and the real causo of tho downfall
of Bermior Maura. Unless Canalojns makes haste
to go slowly he will ride to a fall and possibly
with the public spirit affected by the recent events
in Portugal wo may have uprisings that will evon-
tunle in King Alfonso joining,his colleague Manuel
at the British capitnl.

compensation'for-,the murder of my

father wasn't responsible—he said
that father assumed this risk when
he entered, the shop and we could
get no. redress]
. Rather than leave her children
alone all day while she was at work
in the* factory'where she had-worked
before she -was married, my mother
took in" washing. One cold day she
was .taken with pneumonia and the
next day she was gone.
That's why you build orphan boy's
charity homes. You murder their
fathers and mothers; you destroy their
home, and you think ..you're being
good to ■ them by putting them in a
big, cheerless bouse, where tlieir little
hearts hunger and grow'1' hard and
bitter, because you have stolen from"
them the love that only a parent
knows. .
Why don't you. go to .your farther
and the 200 other murderers' who
have robbed those orphan boys cf
iheir fathers and mothers, and tell
them it is a death tax you are gathering, and they are • the taxpayers.
No! You steal from us the wealth we
ourselves have produced; you murder
us, and then—thieves and murderers
that you are—you become beggars by
woedling us out of our paltry bread
money, and smilingly pin a tag upon
us as a token of our participation in
your crimes. Wero I lo lake that tag,
1 too, would share your guilt. With
you I become the murderer of my
father and my mother and the de-
stroyer of my brothers.
Some day the criminal ignorance of
the working class will disappear and
you. will not dare the Insult of today.
Not only shall the little pile- of the
wealth we' produce be ours," but the
large pile also. All of the wealth
shall remain iu the hands of those
who produce it. Then we shall protect our own boys and girls, and
when it so happens that nature robs
one of these little ones of both father
and mother, no despicable, degrading
charity' shall.poison his life, but justice shall be his' by- right of life.
Society ..will protect and conserve its
own life in protecting aud conserving
the life of its children.
Suddenly she became aware of the
growing' crowd, the light of righteous
wrath died in her tired eyes, a timid,
half-understanding cheer came forth
from the lips and hearts of the assembled workers, and she slipped
away, carrying with her the conviction
of a duty unexpectedly met and bravely' performed.

the presentation of the prizes on behalf of the committee and in a very
neat speech staled that it was a great
credit to the inhabitants ol" Coal Creek
lo get up such a grand affair as the
one they were enjoying that evening.
Coal Creek is a small place but it is
certainly right up-to-date when there
is anything on in the way of enjoyment.
We aro pleased to see our old
friend, W. II. Evans, back again,
but. are very sorry that he is still
looking ' so sick," and can only got
about with the aid of a walking
stick. Uo certainly has had a long
and tedious illness, but still hope that
he will soon be able and well enough
to take up his old position on the

Tom Moreland is at present spending a vacation in Montana. We don't
know whether he is going In-for

The postponed smoking concert of
the Coal Creek Football club was held
in the Club hall on Saturday evening,
the 15th of October. Harry .Fox was
elected chairman and he kept the ball
rolling along in fine_, style with a
good program of vocal and. instrumental music, which was <. attentively
listened to by, a, very appreciative
audience, every artist being loudly applauded. The following are some of

they, could hear murmurings aud
and shouting as to who was going

The residents at the top end of the
creek are beginning to think the
lucky star is shining its magic rays
on "them as several houses can now
boast of having water taps iu the

sadly needed the attention it has at

A few remarks on the way the election was carried on in this camp will
not, we think, be out of place.
Punctually at 8 o'clock the polling
booth was open for business and the
first feature of the program was the
arrival of a couple of rigs driven by
an Italian and carrying a number of
passengers all evidently of the Ross
persuasion. The horses wero gaily bedecked with blue rosettes as were
also a number of the passengers. We
are at a loss to understand why theso
trimmings were not used in Fernie,
but possibly that, which is not- allowed by law in Fernie can be done
in Coal Creek. Before 10 o'clock-
came thore was evidence on every
side "that'some of- the voters had
been  imbibing freely of .some liquid
Campbell was greatly surprised fit
finding the club rooms so well stocked

well-stocked library,- the billiard and

whore each ancl every member can
enjoy themselves in their different,
hobbies in tho long -winter evenings.
They; also inspected, thc spacious barroom, tho hall upstairs, furnace room,
cellar and all the sanitary arrangements, and reported everything up-
to-date as a club should he. They
nlso stated that it was up to every
member lo assist the* board of management In keeping Ilie club in order
so Unit it may always bo looked upon
as a second homo to all' tlio mnlo Inhabit ants of Coal Creek.
The vaudeville show which was
billed for* the club hall last Friday
evening proved lo bo nnolher of thoso

crystal unless strongly diluted with

women and children in the vicinity
of the booth were forced to witness

Wo hear Frank got a raw deal in
regard to the tie for the Mutz cup,
but we are not surprised. We got
anything but a square deal both in
regard'to league and cup and especially was this the case with the shield
presented by our president and put
up for competition. Whether of the
same value as the other trophies of
the district or not It was given in
the same spirit and might at least,
have been acknowledged. Football in
the pass will soon be a thing of the
past unless some different officials
are elected and things go on as per
schedule. There is far .too much
wrangling and jealousy between one
club and another, which is no doubt
due to weak officials.
It is rumored that the Hosmer fire

MY   SOCIALIST   SALUTATORY.
Although the recent bye-election in
the Fernie'-riding has terminated in
the return of the Conservative candidate, it is safe to assume that the
gallant and strenuous efforts of the
Socialist parly have not been so ineffective as their political opponents
would have desired. Had tho issue
been a three-cornered one. as obtained
in the previous' election, tho result
would undoubtedly have been reversed, and the fact that the struggle
has been reduced to tho two most
antagonistic, factions.'leads one to
the ■conclus'ion that the. defeat may
possibly contain some element of victory.
There is one other phase of the affair on which "the Socialists may certainly congratulate themselves; they
have aroused the* minds of tbe workers in this district from the lethargic
condition to which they had to some
extent become habituated, and have
stimulated the more intelligent among
them with a desire to look more
earnestly into a question which so
closely (concerns their Welfare, and
which thoy 'have hitherto misinterpreted, or looked*-.upon' witli the suspicion which is invariably associated
with movements of an original ..or
revolutionary character, To the average man in the street, the doctrine
of the Socialist party has been of a
most abstract nature, a thing-, elusive,
too abstruse for ordinary comprehension, but thanks to the sensible manner in which the Socialist speakers
have expressed themselves in the recent campaign, their ideas arc now
grasped with intelligence; tho veil of
misunderstanding has been removed,
and the. working men of the Fernie
riding have at last come lo appreciate lo some extent tho philosophy
which' is slowly, hut surely material-
"Legal possession of the means of
production for the working class."
Shorn  of its embellishments,  terse
and simple in form, the battle-cry of
this    grenl     revolutionary  party  has
been  carried',on  the wings of every
breeze, and convoyed its message to
lho working class of all nations.    II.
has rung through this mountain pass
like a clarion  call, and left the  toil-
slained  sons    in    many    a  worker's
home with something to dwell upon, j
something to renson wiih, somethingi
thoy  are  ablo   id  comprehend   in   all i
the nakedness of truth. I
"What!" Wo hear the voice of the'
maslor clnss exclaim, "Possession of
tho means of production for tho working class! The merging nf lho wholo
of the present means of wealth pro-
duel lon into ono huge corporate body
controlled hy tho working class! Tho
consummation of such a preposterous!
idea, would shatter the industries of
the world; would strangle that competition which is so vital a factor in
economic production, and with the
same destroying grasp kill ambition,
fetter progress, and hurl the affairs
of the world back to the primitive
state from which thoy sprang. Your
dreams are visionary. Your argument advam.-ed by those whose interests are opposed to tlio evolution of
legislation along socialistic line. It
is really a very striking example of
that ponderous rhetoric with which
the champions of the master-class attempt to refute the principles of
truth, hut a little reflection will clearly prove that it, is entirely lacking in
that fundamental exactitude which is
so essential to sound argument; that
the deductions are entirely erroneous,
or intentionally,,misleading; and that
instead of disproving the .power of
socialism to improve the conditions
of the human rape, it proves conclusively thai,, their, own commercial
progress for' the last half century
has been of a socialistic nature. Let
us examine tlie point dispassionately..
The latter half of tho nineteenth
century marked an epoch in the annals of industrial undertakings, Competition had developed to its highest
point, and economy, always a vital
factor in commodity production', became the sine qua non of successful
operations. This question of economic
production claimed the undivided attention of the keenest intellects of
the financial and manufacturing
worlds, and as is often the case in
affairs of a similar nature, the trained
mind of the business men rose superior to the occasion. Larger profits
could only be realized by the elimination of that competition which was
the outcome of individual operation.
The economy and stability of consolidation was recognized. The competitive plants of industry wero
brought together in one huge ucorpor-
ate body, and th'e (rusts, those greatest of all economic machines, were
evolved. Some conception of the
gigantic profits resulting from the
consolidation of Individual interests
may be formed when it is realized
thai the net profit in the flotation of
the United States Steel corporation
wa,s, in -round figures, One Hundred
Million Dollars ($100,000,000.. These
figures represent tlie difference in the
amount actually paid by the promoters for the different competitive
plants in "that particular line of industry, and tlie amount, subscribed
by iho public for shares and  securi-
_i"-i__c=. \f_-_.-l I a=-n /__.!____.__. »_nr_».»_ tl....
«_    ...v.    ..-..,.     v.... ,,u. ..-w.u.i.
And yet these representatives of
th'o master class,, these men of colossal wealth,, whose enormous profits
in one successful oporation arc sufficient to finance* a„ small nation,
these men, I say, would have you he-
l'evc that such a system, tho very
system which thoy havo themselves
Insllfiilcd and carried out with such
phenomenal success, would send the
industrial edifice (ottering (o destruction; (hat. il would strangle compel i:
tion, while* the.- own present methods
of worlc have be-on instituted-for the
vory purpose, and their own stupendous results have proved that lho
elimination of competition is necessary to Insure the progress of productive industry. In the fiu-n of such
colossal prolits, (hey would nitenipt
lo refute lho doctrines of soclnlism,
which has for ils aim nnd object (he
instItin lon of the vory principles, con
trolled by the people, which they have
themselves adopted and control as a
class. The' capitalists themselves are -
the greatest demonstrators of the
wisdom of the' philosophy of socialism; their whole industrial edifice
is built" from that plank of the Socialist platform which supports the
question of production along corporate
lines, and reason throws their remarks back in their teeth: r "Your
dreams are visionary. * Your arguments are made from the wrong premises."- ,   ,
And now the question arises in' tho
minds of the workingmen: How long
are these conditions of class possession and c-pntrol going, to, continue?
For how long will (hv: only really useful class in society—-the workers—bo
deprived of that which they alone
have produced, and wliich, by every
law of nature, belongs to those who
have produced if? These aro questions which tliey must answer' for
themselves. In tlieir own collective
action lies the power to recover
possession and control of that which
nas been wrested from them since
productive industry was born to the
world. It is the mission of the Socialist parly to educate the minds of
the working class, to enable them lo
fully appreciate the evils of the present system of capitalistic control, and
point the way to a moro equitable
condition of affairs. So long* as the
present system of administration and
production continues, so long will,the
Socialist party protest and wage their
fight for the emancipation" of the
workers. Some day the reins of government will be grasped, and then
will be experienced such a revolution
in the administration.of affairs that-
cannot find its parallel in the history
of the world.
So, on with the car of progress,
ever onward and forward until the
co-operative , commonwealth he attained and class arrayed against class
be transformed into a society of man-'
kind working only for the common
good. V. S. P.
WHAT   WAS   THE    INCENTIVE?
Heroic Cabdriver Leaps Into the
Thames in' the Dark.
"His action was heroic," the Westminster coroner Said yesterday of
James Edwards, a cabdriver, of Kib-
worth street, Lambeth, who early on
Thursday morning, while driving ,on
the embankment, heard that a woman had jumped inlo the Thames, and.
leaving his cab, sprang into the river
after her.   It was dark at the time.
j " Tho tide was running strongly, hut
he' seized tlie woman and held her
, up until he was nearly sucked under
j a pier by tho water. He was almost
! drowned before two .men in a boat
| rescued him. The woman sank.
I Edwards, who paid thai he "only,
j did what anyone else would do," told
j the coroner ihal some one stole his
[coat wllh all his money while ho was
i in Ihe water,
j The foreman of the jury handed the
! cabman 10s., and the coroner said he
! would commend Iiim and two- pnllce-

Exploitation of
Canadian Peat Bogs
In a country such as Canada where
independently of tbe continually increasing amount of fuel required for
industrial purposes, the people are
during tbe long winters, dependent
upon artificial heat in their homes,
the item of cheap fuel becomes one
of the most important, factors in ihe
prosperity of the nation. The coal deposits are situated iu the far east and
west, and tho long hauls to bring
this fuel to the contral provinces
Tender thc price of their own coal
prohibitive, and leave them dependent on outside sources for the necessary supply of fuel in the provinces.
Tho rapid industrial development of
Canada and increase of population
render the intelligent exploitation ef
the abundant and excellent peat deposits for fuel purposes of supreme
importance. They can at present, form
an estimate of the enormous extent
of the peat bogs. The "7.000 square
miles already known form probably
but a small fraction of the amount of
this valuable fuel asset in existence
in Canada. The necessity of utilizing
tho peat deposits scattered throughout the provinces in the more settled
portions of '"them has within recent
times been .appreciated, and efforts
have .been made by some enterprising
citizens (o establish a peat industry.
Much money, thought and energy have
been spent on this problem. Mnny
plants have been erected, but unfortunately so far without reaching
commercial results. .
To prevent failure in the manufacture of -peat fuel, an investigation
was made by the department three
years ago, and a report issued on the
manufacture of peat for fuel and other
purposes in the peat-using countries of
Europe. This investigation demonstrated that: (1) For the economic
production of fuel from peat, machinery driven by power must be Substituted as far as possible for man-,
ual labor. (2) Tliat processes so far
invented for removing the water* content of tho peat by pressure and artificial heat have not led to commercial results, and after trial have been'
aoandoned.
Recent reports regarding two very
promising processes employing artificial heat in the production of peal
fuel, are very disappointing. Namely,
the process of the Eleetropeat Syndicate, with the head office at New-
castlo-on-Tyne, England, and the somewhat famous Ekenberg process. The
Eleetropeat Syndicate erected an extensive plant at Kilberg in the county
of Kildare, Ireland, for the production of a substitute, for, coal from peat
which they expected to sell at six
-shilling—per-four".—No—money—was"
spared in trying to make the experiments a success, and most ex-
' pensive machinery was put down. Ex-
, perls were brought from Germany to
look after tho work undor the superintendence of Captain Verey, R. E.
Large shipping companies, oh the
strength of samples submitted, and
representations made to them, promised somo very largo contracts for
fuel, but tbe company, at the ond of
ovor one year's experimentation,"found
that their process was a failure. The
peal, made by them looked llko coal
and burned woll, but was hygroscopic,
and after a short, timo crumbled to
po-.ydor. All efforts to overcome (his
defect failed, and the project was permanently-abandoned In Juno last, The
Ekenberg process of the wet carbonisation of peat is exceedingly ingenious, and has aroused great expectations, but is* still in* the experimental stage after the-expenditure
of 200,000 kronor in Sweden to place
it upon a commercial basis. The endeavor to accomplish economically by
artificial means in a short lime, what
has heen accomplished by nature in
exceedingly lone periods of time,
namely, the change of peat into a
substance similar to coal, has so far
apparently' nol heen ■ attended with
success.
To re-establish the confidence of
the people of Canada in the value of
peat as a domestic and industrial fuel,
and to stimulate renewed activity in
the development of their peat resources, the government has acquired
,'!00 acres of peat bog, with an average depth of nine feet, for the. purpose of manufacturing peat-fuel on a
commercial scale, and hy a method
which has proved successful in European -• practice. At. this plant interested parlies will have an opportunity
of ascertaining, for themselves the
working of the bog as well as the
suitability of the peat fuel produced.'
Tho capacity of the plant is a production of 30 Ions per day. For a
large commercial plant, mechanical
excavators should replace the manual
labor employed at our plant, if the
hog to be exploited is suitable for
this class of. labor-saving machinery.
The plant al Alfred is* to-serve as a
model of a successful process, and not
for the production of peat fuel on an
extensive scale. They expect, however, to manufacture during this seasons about 2,000 tons of peat fuel,
parL of which is to be used in the
peat gas producer at Ottawa. There
is nothing artistic about the appearance of the fuel produced at the bog.
It has not the regular geometric form
of briquettes nor their smooth exterior
but it serves the purpose for which
fuel is intended as well as briquettes,
and has tho advantage of being low
in cost, of manufacture.
Allowing 140 days for a "season's
operation, the cost per ton of, air-
dried machine peat, including interest, on capital invested, amortisTition,
oil and repairs, is as follows: Cost
of fuel on the field, $1.-10; -cost of
fuel stored in shed, 51.65; cost of,fuel
loaded on car, $1.65; cost of fuel in
stack, $1.70. -By the employment of
mechanical excavators and the manufacture of peat on a large scale, the
cost, of product per ton should be considerably less than ,the figures here
given. .   ,
.The   objection   to     the     air-drying
■pTocissirTTfactlsetTaFT lie plant, TsTHaU
it is not a continuous process, thai
it can be worked only during the
summer months, and that the amount
of fuel which can be produced during
ono season is dependent upon weather
conditions. These statements are
quite true, and yet* Sweden, Finland,
Denmark-, Germany, Holland, Austria
and Russia, depend for a'large part
of their fuel supply on tho simple
process of pulping the peat, forming
it into bricks upon the field ancl harvesting it as air-dried fuel. Tho
weather conditions ln Canada* aro as
favorable, if not. more so, for the
production of air-dried machine peats
as in the countries mentioned, To
prevent shortage of peat fuel on account 'of unfavorable weather condi
tions during a season's work, a year's
supply of peat fuel should always be
kept in storage. Russia is the
largest producer of peat fuel in the
world. In 1902, the production was
•1,000,000 tons of peat fuel, and' the
annual increase of production has
since then amounted to nearly 200,000
tons. ■ Many private plants exist in
in Russia in connection with - cotton
mills for the production for their own
use of 200,000 tons c-f peat fuel annually. One thousand three hundred
plants making machine peat are now
in operation in Russia.'    '
The hardness of anthracite permits
long hauls without much waste—the
small volume it occupies requires a
minimum of space for storage—and
the small amount of volatile matter
it contains insures a nearly smokeless flame.*' These aro such valuable-
properties of- this fuel that so long as
it can be obtained, it will be used by
those who can afford to pay for it.
Peal fuel is, however, admirably
adapted for use in grates during the
late fall and early spring, when the
heating furnaces are not in operation.
This fuel will compete in prices and
cleanliness with soft coal for the
purpose stated in the most .luxurious
homes. For* the inhabitants of rural
districts, villages, and certain parts of
the cities,.whose homes are not supplied with hot air, hot water, and
steam systems of heating hut require
the use of stoves, peat fuel will prove
a cheap and excellent fuel, far superior to wood, and far more con-
renient lo handle.
The economy which may be effected by the use of peat is readily understood, when it is stated that in
Ontario and Quebec the average price
of anthracite with a high percentage
of ash.is $7.50, and in Manitoba $10
per ton, whereas air-dried machine
peat, containing only about 5 per cent,
of ash can bo manufactured at a cost
of considerably under $3.00 for an
amount having the same .calorific
value as a ton of the anthracite we
import. This could be sold at places
conveniently situated* as • regards
transportation facilities and not too
far from the place of manufacture for
a little more than one-half the price
paid for anthracite 'in Ontario and
Quebec,' and for a little more than
one-third of the price paid for anthracite in Winnipeg. Some few
years back the labor troubles in the
United States taught, a lesson which
should be heeded,; enabling tbem to
conceive .what a real fuel famine
would mean for Canada. Anthracite
coal in Ottawa at that time was sold
at $12 per ton.*
The central provinces or Canada
have accumulated no stores of fuel,
ready to. be drawn upon in cases

NEWS AND NOTES;
, .        Waste Steam. „
At the annual meeting of the Institution of Mining Engineers, Mr. J.
Burns',  of Rugby,  spoke  of progress
in the use of exhaust steam power,
and  declared   that   it  was  becoming
evident  that    more    economical  use
must   be   made   of   our   national   resources  if  Britain  was  to' retain  its
important place amongst great industrial nations of the world.   As practically   all ■ steam   power   was   raised
directly from coal,* the question whether reasonable precautions were being
taken to prevent undue waste arose.
When all had been  said against the
use  of  exhaust  steam—and  its  very
success had called forth a host of detractors—the solid facts remained.   A
,°.reat waste of power was constantly
going  on,  and  practically  only waiting lo be utilized.    In the naturo of
things it was unlikely that all colliery
winding engines would run condensing
plants,   even   where   cool .water   was
available.   The difficulties of manipulation were too great to be counterbalanced by the comparatively small
saving that could be looked for, aud,
in  addition,    the    possibility    of  ' &
breakdown of the condensing plant at
a critical moment introduced  a new
element of uncertainty. lie hoped that
the day was nol far distant when it
would be impossible to find any steam
being exhausted directly to the atmosphere    from    stationary  engines.    A
considerable    time    would    probably
elapse, however, before the. immense
amount of steam required by-locomo-
t\ve? can be utilized to more advantage—During the debate, one speaker   affirmed   that  at  most  collieries
there was as much energy going to
waste, in the shape of exhaust steam,
as was    actually   utilized.    The low
pressure turbine was destined, to effect great economies.
"about 7d. for a load of 13cwt.," and
whilst the miner could turn out much
more he "invariably refused • to cut
more-than'one such load" in a day.
And yet' with the obstacles that .this
method of working brings, and ■ with
the delay that the antique practices
entail, thick seams and cheap labor
are causing Indian" coal to be sold at
prices which make1 il a competitor
with better fuel." Where India exported 16,000.tons of coal yearly towards the close of last century, it
sent out half-a-million tons a decade
later; and it seems from the statements by other authorities- that the
extent of the production has risen
more than concurrently with-the exports. There is no doubt that the
cheap Indian coal is finding its way
to some of thc colonies and countries
in which, by distance, tho cost of the
better-British coal is raised to a
much higher rale; but "it,, may be
looked on as tolerably certain thai
these antique methods of working will
be modified, and probably; the New'
castle Chronicle says, there will be
changes in the rates of pay which
will have an effect on the selling
price of coal, and therefore on its
ability to compete in neutral markets.

A lecture on "Coal Mining in India,"
given by Mr. George, at Cardiff, puts
into a graphic picture some of .the
features of coal-mining-as pursued
i-n that distant. land. The coal fields
are about 30 times the. extent of
those in South ' Wales; they have
been worked for scores of years, but
often in olden fashion; and the quality
of Bengal coal is often very poor, contrasted with Welsh or English coal.
The seams are thick, ■ the average

there are some .which are'' as much
"as 100 feel thick.-" It is not always
so easy to- get labor to work the
seams, for the native would rather
work on the land at a smaller wage
than that of "sixpence per day at the
coal mines." But*there are not men

X Letters To
|       The Editor
The editor is   not   responsible for
articles tlmt nre sent in,
mimical lon that appeared In The District  Ledger  of  lho   1st  inst.,  show-
Aliloriniin Johnson In the Free Press
of  Un'  ,-iiii  in'*,t„  ri'pllc'.*,  to  r.'.y  coin-
liiK  Kcani. court i-sy    10    my way  ofi.-mints  oiiiinol   i,0  loloriifr-d   fo
tliliil.inn in llm niiinoriHiK renders and
supporter!, of (hu lulicr pnpor.
Hi'   docs   nnl,   however,   answer   or
Furthermore I stated, that were the
municipal plants depreciated as they
should be, under the present management, they would show a loss for the
year in the neighborhood of ?8,000.
This is surely a' matter of vital importance to the taxpayers, but Mr.
Johnson dismisses it with the assertion that it has nothing to do with
matters that are now interesting the
ratepayers of. this city. " •
.Surely such statements affecting
the ratepayer's pockets as they do,
and will * do for years to come, are
entitled to some consideration, in
fact, very much more than they received from Mr. Johnson. "
Such statements must be either correct or incorrect, Mr. 'Johnson, however, leaves them severely alone, for
in place of ' denying or discussing
them, endeavors to hide the real issue, and fills his letter with a tissue
of  insinuations.
These are, however,,to say the least,
untrue, for this, defeated candidate
is very well satisfied to remain the
defeated, candidate, and will so remain for all time to come.
As for my criticism being prompted
by any personal ill feeling Mr. Johnson states what is absolutely untrue.
*•*_ have absolutely no cause or reason
for same.
The provincial and municipal taxes
that my company* paid this year
amounted to roughly ?S0O, that they
will, be' higher next year and for
many years to come, owing to the
spend, spend policy of this present
council, Mr. Johnson cannot deny.
.This then, Alderman Johnson, is
the reason of my complaint, and like
many other ratepayers, I think that I.
havo very-good reason, I, as ' an
alderman last year, was in favor of
the expenditure then mado, BUT WAS
NOT BY ANY- MEANS IN FAVOR
OF ALL THB PROPOSED EXPENDITURES. This', however, does -not
make- mo responsible far, or in favor
of tho expenditure made this year.
Last year a tremendous amount of
money was spent on a light and water system, sidewalks and other necessities. I took the stand at the end
of the year that it was time to call
a halt, true a certain amount of work
would still'be necessary, extensions to
water and electric light would have
to be made, and'other necessary work
done.' Our general revenue, however,
would have taken care of quite a lot
of such work, and debentures to a
reasonable amount, say 20 or 25 thousand dollars, in place of • $103,500,
might have been sold to complete thc
balance, that; is, until such time as
we could afford more. The mayor's
often expressed policy was to borrow
to the limit of the city's credit, and
as Alderman Johnson at no time has
any opinion other than- the mayor's,
it is quito. in keeping that he should
how defend such policy."
In regard to Mr. Johnson's statement that I was 'invited to the plat-
-1.0 rrn—ano—cou _ ti—. 1 ave—a d dressed tire *
meeting had I so desired. This .110
doubt is'verS' true, but he does not
state that* the time would have been
close to 11:30-p. m., for. tho reason
that his worship, the mayor, held the
center of the stage until 10:-30 p. m.
Also that Mr. Eckstein, who certainly had a .prior right, owing to the
attack thnt had been made upon him,'
was unable to fully roply owing to
the lateness of the hour. For Mr.
Johnson's information I would say
that many ratepayers In addition to
myself were prepared.to address the
meeting, but owing to tho. brilliant
gunoralslilp exhibited by his worship
in giving no opportunity until close
to the midnight hour, none availed
themselves of such opportunity,
I have uo doubt hnd tho opportunity boen given to tho ratepayers ono
of iho riuestlons asked of Mr. Johnson ns chairman of tho finance committee, would bo to explain the reported signing of a cheque for In tho
neighborhood of J? I HO,* for ono ,1, W,
.Morris, when no such person exists,
yet alone could have a claim ngninst,'
the'clty for any mic-ii amount of
money. Mr, Johnson will surely agree

Through the No. Ei!)9 of a Western,

your 'report about tho JJkranlan Socialist convention, As tho roport Is

1.—Tho main purpose of tho convention was not lo decide regarding
the future policy to bo pursued as lo
coiiiliiiiniR-o or not with lhe S. P. of
C. As you probably know lho
rkranliVn locals of a, P. of C, formed
n fodorntlon for lho purposi.' of supervising (lie propnganda In lho Ukrnn-
Inn language. Onr plcn for constllu-
tionnl recognition ns a federal Ion,
however, was strangled by the Dominion iixecutlvo commHton of lho S, P.
of C. Therefore, tlm convention wiih

and a few insinuations, which he was
not willing to prove, although he was
requested to do so. Now as none of
our delegates spoke a word in favor
of remaining in the, S, P. of C, it was
visible that the convention was unanimously in favor of severing the bonds
with-the S. P, of C. and joining, the
Social-Democratic party, as the only
representative of the true spirit of
international socialism.-' Ono-delegate,
Topo.lncky, however, voted for "be it
as. it. Is," and, asked for tho reason,
oxplalued that ho does not. want the
decision to bo unanimous. That's till!
Somonik voted, against, tho S. P. of
C. not for il, and It. can bo proven
by lho minutes, He wroto as secretary of Iho convention. Tomashnvsky
did nol vote only becauso ho was tbo
chalrmnn, and there was no need for
his vote, yot as boforo tho convention ho was prncllcally tho western
lender In tho Insurrection against, tho
S, P. of ('. lt was obvloi.s for htm
lo sialo his position.
As to your anxiety about tho fading
of revolutionism of Ukrnnlaii Socialists, I mny assure ynu thai If will
romnin nono tlio loss aggressive than
It was one or lwo yenrH ago. In fact
(lie courage to^onounco tlio niiloerius
of S.iP. of C, was nt iho present. Uic"
