-SEATTLE, Nov. 7.—Two explosions
--.  occurred within    a   few minutes of
• each other this morning resulting,in
the death of 16 men In the Lawson
mine at Black Diamond,'   30    miles
■ southeast of Seattle.
,   Eleven men going • down the shaft
and fivo coming .., up    were    caught
' between  the  first  and  sixth1 levels,
..and all perished. Natural gas combustion Is' assigned, as the cause. All
the men were foreigners.   '**'
;.The force of. the explosions was terrific, showers of earth, timbers and
bits of clothing being blown from the
slope of the mlne'i Timbers 16 Inches
thick and eight feet long were .blown
■about half a mile.   A big'section of
. steam pipe was blown a similar dls-
7 tanco and sank 15 feet in the ground.
As soon as the extent of the dis-
'[■■-aster was known rescue partlos went

alive. As far as known the 16 men
in the tram cars were the only ones

Great Reception in Vancouver—Musical Event of the Season.
The Vancouver News *■ Advertiser,
thus - describes the Royal Welsh
Ladies! choir concert;-' in the Vancouver opera house,on Monday evening last.
Great! One word, which is the es-,
sence of simplicity in its definition
of ' expression, sums up the festival
of song provided by the Royal Welsh
Ladles' choir at the concert held ln
the opera house last night. Prom the
rising of the curtain until the crimson
folds lowered proclaiming the end
the audience was held spell bound in
rapturous admiration. As a choir the
ladles emphasized their talent in no
uncertain way for both individually
and collectively they gave a precision
of harmonization which was truly
marvellous. The audience was
thrilled by the manner in which the
numbers were rendered and possibly
never before in Vancouver, had the
strings of emotionalism been touched
to such an extent.' The audience was
expecta-nt; .they devoured each "note
as the music*.proceeded with its harmonious swell and as each soloist
, finished or a choral selection concluded, there arose an applause insistent in its demand for an appetite
which, perhaps, was beyond appeasing. Like Oliver Twist they had the
temerity to ask for more, several encores being rendered  in response.

"ALONG THE KENNEBEC,"
AT THE GRAND THEATER
The old-time down east melodrama,
"Along the Kennebec," was played at
the Grand theater on,Wednesday evening to a crowded house. .The story
is a very passable one, and depicts
a phase of life in which the peculiar
personality of the wood-whittling way-
down Yank is delineated in a way.
that is guaranteed to bring a smile
to the face ° of the sphinx. Miss
Minnie Christie, as Tr'yphenia Trotr,
was excellent, and her ■*_ portrayal cf
the"character is entitled to'commendation. .The loye.of tho two "Rubes,"
Zeke Dasher and Blmellck Tubbs, for
•this antiquated piece of rustic femininity, and their persistent efforts lo
win her-hand ' and ' incidentally the

legacy'which she is supposed to have
inherited,' leads': to .many amusing
features, a. most laughable situation
being the exaggerated duel, .which was
well • sustained and certainly tickled
the risibles of the-audience. '
• Zeke's part of,, the Way-Down
Yankee was'well-played from first io
last," arid' his song, "I Never .'.Had
Such ;a Time in My Life," was well
received and met with a well merited
encore. The characterization of tho
postmaster * was exceptionally good;
the enunciation was clear and distinct,"
and the' part rendered with that
dignity whicli one would naturally expect from such an individual In real
life. Miss Ermn Weste, as Dolly,
made a charming heroine, nnd played
her part with a simple grace which
wns quite In keoplng with tho character sho assumed, Mr. Russoll El-
well, as Lewis! the hero of the
drama, acted throughout ln a most
praiseworthy mannor. ills linos wero
by no means heavy for a Juvenile
load, but thoy wore woll rendered,
and IiIb facial expression whon accused of tho theft of tho* lottor woro
particularly true to*'lifo. Tho bad
man* of tho* piny was C. Tl. MeCrnno,
as Jamos Harper, Wo fool oursolvos
Incnpablo of offering a criticism of
this character, but—Oh you villain!
To sum ■ up briefly, tho casto 1I003
riot loavo mueh to "cavil about, but
tho support of Its momborH ono to
lho other is decidedly weak. Thoro Is
altogether loo much attempt at Individualism, and the combinative offoct suffers In consequence.
On Tuesday of this week a special
meeting was held in the council
chambers and the several matters
brought forward were dealt with in a
business-like and expeditious manner.
The city's representatives were all
in their accustomed' places when', the
following matters were taken up and
disposed of:
1. . A petition was submitted from
tho members of Knox- Presbyterian
church asking that the houses in the
restricted district be closed.        .   >
2. , From a ' number of women in
Fernie asking for the theaters to be
closed on Sunday. •
■ 3. Two petitions from (1) prominent citizens and (2) from the members of' the Church . of' the*- Holy
Family that the theaters be kept open
on Sunday.
■ All of the above when they 'came
up for discussion were ordered filed."
As a result'-of a communication
from R. W. McDonald regarding the
auditing of the city booksthe finance
committee * strongly recommended
that the endeavor be made to have
E. B. McDermid make a final audit
for 1910:* ,
■ L.P. Eckstein addressed the'council * in writing advocating the holding
of. another public meeting to take -,up
and disquss city.affairs, hut this was,
deemed unnecessary^.as it is assumed
that the auditor will shortly complete
the audit whereby.- every, ratepayer
will be fully apprised relative to the
financial status of the municipality.
As a result -of the letter frorii the
local agents;.of the.; .United States
Fidelity & .Guaranty; Company stating
that they- do not wish to carry the
bond of Indemnity unless the ' audit
be made semi-annually, ,,it was decided that this • should hereafter be
done and that the ■ bonding company
be so informed.'. -     °    ,
The superintendent of light and
power was instructed to interview Mr,
Mutz about the extending of service
to the brewery;     |
In consequence of an error in the
estimates of the school board for tho
present year the city clerk was requested to notify the board that they
furnish a statement of expenditure,
together with a supplementary estimate, and to put in appearance at the
next' meeting to discuss the matter.
It was also recommended by the
finance committee that advantage be
taken of the 10 per cent, discount
for the prompt payment of the-bill of
t*he. Kootenay Telephone company;
also that R. H. Clerke be reimbursed
for the.services of. night policeman;,

Grand Jury Indicts
Six in Land Cases
SIX      INDICTMENTS      RETURNED
"BY  FEDERAL   GRAND  JURY
, CHARGING CONSPIRACY.
SPAIN TREMBLES FOR,
LOYALTY OF ARMY
Men   Prominent   in   Public   Life   in
United States Are Involved.
SPOKANE, Wash., Nov. 4.—The
action of the federal grand' jury yesterday afternoon in returning six indictments charging conspiracy to defraud the United States government
out of approximately 20,000 acres of
coal lands, estimated to be worth between $150,000,000,, and $200,000,000,
has launched what is believed will result in a national scandal und il is
believed to foreshadow the intention
of the government to cancel all coal
land filings in Alaska. Should such
action be taken lands valued at one
billion dollars would be released.
Those who aro under indictment today are:    Raymond Brown and Wil-
. Ham It. Dunn of Spokane; Charles H.
Doughten, formerly of Spokano, now
a resident of Seattle; ex-Mayor Harry
White of Seattle, now a resident of
■Los Angclos; Charles A. McKenzie,
capitalist of Seattle; Donald A, McKenzie, capitalist    and    promoter of
^Washington, D. C, Seattle ancl Alaska.
r' involved in the formal accusations
made by a federal, grand jury of Spokane, are the names of some of the
most prominent men.in public life, the
president of the American Beet Sugar
company, governors and congressmen.
Special agents of the general land
office who have labored months ln the
northwest and Alaska, and ■- who
brought to Spokane literally a ton of
evidence, liave been well rewarded for
it is believed with the return of the
indictments today in' these new
groups the restoration to the government of thousands of acres of coal
lands valued at millions of dollars is
made possible.
MADRID, Oct. 27. Via Hendaye,
Oct. 28,—Doubtful of the loyalty of
the Spanish army to the government,
Spain is today bending every effort
to strengthen her civil guard, the
strongest bulwark of reaction-in the
country. Recruiting is going on everywhere for the guard * and' since the
revolution in Portugal, its membership has been almost doubled.
" The Civil Guard is distinct from the
regular police, corresponding more
nearly to the French gendarmerie, or
to the Mexican ruralcs..' In the vicinity of Barcelona alone the government now has 3,000 guardsmen* ready
for service  or.  an  instant's  notice.
While the troops aro recruited from
the people, ...share the latters' sympathies and prejudices and are saturated with Republicanism, the guardsmen are more mercenaries. They are
well paid and instead of being gathered haphazard by conscription, are
picked from just the material'the government wants. The prisons contribute largely to the filling of their
ranks.
HE CANNOT STEM THE TIDE.
CATHOLIC   RECOGNITION   OF   SOCIALIST JUSTICE.
The Catholic Universe of Cleveland,
0.,-a strongly anti-Socialistic publication* in a long review of the Deitz
case, pointing out the injustices clone
the Deitz family, calls, attention to the
fact that "a Socialist* mayor, not ,a
Republican or a. Democrat, took
active steps to 'secure competent
counsel for* the prisoners that they
might have a fair trial. To,,quote: _
""•"'In the 'Battle of"CamefoinDam'~in"
Cardinal Logue, the Primate of all
Ireland, 'has paid another visit to the
shores of Young Columbia ancl being
a prominent man and an exalted
dignitary of the Catholic church, it
was only natural that the cardinal
should be interviewed by the representatives of the press.
No one will deny that the cardinal
is a Biblical scholar and that he is
well versed in., theology and moral
philosophy, but the student of economics will give but little credit to
the .intelligence of the cardinal when
analyzing his statements relative to
problems that seriously affect the material interests of the masses of the
people.   -    -
The cardinal, in one of his statements, declared: "The church, is'
strongly opposed to Socialism, because it is anti-Christian. Professed
Socialist leaders declare themselves
either free thinkers, or,atheists. Of
course, there can be no alliance between thc church and such. The men
and women who,do not willlngs submit themselves to God's laws and his
disciples are, not likely to regard human laws as possessing much binding
,fOnce.__ '    "    ,    ____ "   __
denies the ballot on earth to be particularly  favored  in  heaven?
If such sentiments are in conformity with the spirit of Christianity, then
we are forced to deplore that Christianity offers so little to the moneyless men and women of the earth.
, But the cardinal, continuing,' said:
"As for the schools,- the Catholic
church-has always opposed the principle of your public, school system."
It must be presumed ' from the
above statement that i the public
school system iri the opinion of the
cardinal is as anti-Christian as Socialism.
The public school has been the
only temple of education in wliich the
poor man could educate his child, and
yet, the cardinal is opposed to a
school system tbat disseminates learning among that vast army of children
who are the posterity of impoverished
parents.
The cardinal, closing his' interview
said:
' "As I see it, there are a number'
of problems confronting thc American
people. Divorce, as I have said, is
one of the greatest lo be recokned
with. Then there's the negro question. Your negroes are not amalgamating, but they have been granted
political.rights; I think this will be
a serious problem to solve. Then
there are the trusts. I am of the
opinion Ihat they should be controlled so as not to permit, a few people to gel the whole trade of the
country."
The cardinal in the above, acknowledges that there are a number of
problems confronting us and,yet, this
learned man of the church advances
no remedies by which those problems
can be solved.
The negro, divorce and trust problems are here, but the cardinal offers
no prescription to cure the evils.
Christianity and' the church have
been in business for more than, 1,900
years and yet, a cardinal is' forced:
to admit the infamies that load our
civilization,
The cardinal says that the trusts
should be "controlled," but how?.
The trusts arc becoming more powerful every year and every intelligent
man is now" recognizing the fact that
the trusts control the governments of
the earth.
The cardinal and his colleagues
may use all their "power aud influence to stem the tide of Socialism,
but their efforts will ,be unavailing,
for the oppressed of the earth will
little longer remain on their knees
while a privileged few live upon the
wealth that is minted from the sweat
and tears of labor. .

The cardinal has branded Socialism
as "anti-Christian" without producing
a'single atom of logical evidence or
argument to substantiate his statement.
What a Socialist's religious convictions may be relative to God or the
church have, no more to do with Socialism-than, a Republican's convictions of God and Christianity have to
do' with Republicanism.
It will not be denied but that there
arc Socialists who doubt the veracity
of scripture, but It likewise must be
admitted that men of all political
creeds doubt the Biblical stories of
God and refuse to accept the doctrines of Christianity as interpreted
by the church.
But because theso mon rofuso to
place implicit trust nncl confldonco in
tho teachings of the church, aro their
political creeds to bo arraigned on
such grounds and condemned?
Socialism is demanding that labor
shall receive tho full social valuo of
Iho product of its toll, and In ordor
that labor shnll rocolvo such remuneration It is necessary that the onrth
nncl nil the machines of production
and distribution shall bo colloctlvoly
owned by nil llio, people.
Is such a demand anll-Chrlstian?
The cnrclliial, on being Interviewed
concerning woman suffrngo snld:
"I hiivo not glvon It much thought,
Howovor, tho Indies in England, I
think, will succeed in iho end bo-
causo tlioy uro fighting hard for it.

they would bo better without lt. Women public, life, I think, do good work

profession of collective murder. Lurid
bill boards showing the boys in blue
and kahki, exhortations in the public
press by the paid liars.and apologists
of capitalist misrule have failed to
bring the necessary enlistments, nor'
has an increase of pay and nllow-c
ances enabled"'them to hold more than
a scant, one-fifth of the recruits they
have obtained for so much as one
term of three years. Then, too, the
world contagion of class consciousness is spreading like a plague
through the army and navy, and it
has seemed to the,, capitalists thai
they were but organizing the working class in arms to do the bidding
of the working class in civil life.
Even the"petty capitalists, the dear
taxpayers as they mistakenly assume
themselves to be, are ■murmuring at
the increasing burden which they >n
turn must shift to the shoulders of
the rebelling workers.
That most; despicable bit of legislation, ever enacted by the ■ American
congress, the Dick Military bill, it is
feared, will fall short of its murderous application.
"What must we do to beat the
workers into subjection when they
have perfected „ their industrial organization?" Counsel the ruling class.
. The Boy. Scouts is, the happy an"
swer ancl practically without expense,
related to its" tremendous proportions,
and with the lickspittle press and
pious retainers of the existing misrule
shouting approval, this crafty plan
originating in the brain of Baden-
Powell, English rough rider and militarist, has in the short period of
three months put five million boys in
military training. Simply by taking
advantage of,* the bounding spirits of
the healthy youths of the middle class
they make of them our future rurales,
Cossacks, constabularies, invincibles!
Let us examine, if ever so briefly,
the dreadful oath and law of the Boy
Scouts. ,

* ..VANCOUVER, Nov. 5—The Dominion census," which will he, taken next
summer, Probably in June, will show.,
■'that  British  Columbia  has  at  least
, 300^000 people.    The census of* 1901
'showed British Columbia's population
" to be 190,000.   British Columbia is at
present represented in the Dominion
, House  bf Commons by seven members.    The  census  of next  summer
will,  according  to  simple  arithmetic
and Hie British North America Act,
which is not so simple, give British
Columbia 12 members in the House
of Commons.
What the   B. .N.  A. Act  Says.
.tTho- British   North   America   Act
made Quebec the pivotal province and
says: -* ,   ,
.(1).' Quebec shall always have 05
.- members;   '     l> '
" ■'. (2)   There shall .be    assigned  *o
",'ea'ch of the other provinces such a
number..of members as will average
the same proportion to the number of
its population  (ascertained   by   census)  as the number of 65 bears to
• the number'   of    the    population of
Quebec. -     .  , ■ '   '.
, (3) In the computation.. of the
number of members for, a province, a
fractional part not exceeding one-
half of the whole number requisite
'for entitling the province to a member shall be disregarded; but a fractional exceeding one-half of that number shall be .equivalent to the wholo
' number. .-.' *
(4) An any such readjustment
the number of members, for a province shall no't be reduced, unless the
proportion whicli""the number,of the
population of the province bore to the
number of the aggregate population of
Canada at the then last preceding
readjustment of the number of members for the province is ascertained
a\ the then latest census to be diminished by one-twentieth part or upwards.--     '   -
; (5) Such - readjustment shall not
take effect until the termination bf
the then .existing'parliament
_
The difference of natural talents in
different' men is,    in    reality,  much
less than-.we* are aware of;  and the
very different genius which appears
to distinguish men of different professions,- when grown up to maturity,
is not upon many occasions so much
the cause, as, the effect of the division of labor.   The difference between
the most-  dissimilar . characters, 'be-
tweeii* a philosopher  and a common
street porter, for example, seems lo
arise  not so much  from nature,  as
from   habit,   custom,   and   education.
When they came into the world, and
for the first, six  or  eight  years  of
their   existence,   they   were  perhaps
very,alike, and neither their parents
nor their playfellows could perceive
any    remarkable    difference.    About
that age, or  soon  after,  thoy * came
to bo employed in vory different occupations.    The difference of talents
comes then to bo taken notico of, and
widens  by degrees,  till  at last the
vanity of the philosopher is willing to
acknowledge scarce any resemblance.
But without the disposition to truck,
barter and exchange, every man must
have procured to himself every necessity and convenience' of life.   All had
the same duties to perform, the same
work  to  do,, and  there  could   have
been no such difference  of employment  as  could   alone  give  occasion
to any great difference of talent.   As
it is this disposition which forms that
difference  of talents,  so remarkable
among-men of different,,professions,'
so it is this same disposition which
renders that difference useful.   Many
tribes of animals, acknowledged to be
all of the same species, derive from
nature'a much more remarkable distinction-of gehius,  than  what, antecedent to custom, and custom appears
to take place among men., By nature
ii philosopher  is not in 'genius  and
disposition half so  different from a
street porter, as a mastiff is from a
greyhound,  or  a  greyhound   from   a
spaniel, or this last from    a    shepherd's dog. ..Those different tribes cf
animals, however, though all. of the
same species, are of scarce any use
to one another.   The strength of the
mastiff is not in the least supported
either by the swiftness of the greyhound -or    by , the * sagacity of the
spaniel, or by the docility, of the shepherd's dog.   The effects of these different geniuses and talents, for want
of the power 'or disposition to barter-
juggling,' thimble-rigging, card-sharping, swindling and adulteration.*   !,'

)W
can  only  make  wealth  by  labor  in
mills,- mines, fields and factories.
You can make money by selling
real'estate, by evading taxes, by
shell-games, by political knavery ancl
by public plunder.
.You can make money by excessive
prices, by rotten tenements, by child
labor, by political laws, hy smuggling,
but you cannot" make wealth.
And another funny thing is you can
make millions by working others, but
you cannot make millions by working
yourself.
A man toiling through life for $5 a
day* makes very little money.
Harriman juggles stocks and in ten
minutes makes more money than Hie
200,000 steel workers can save after
their.lives of toll. "
Armour & Co. can mako more
money by increasing the price ot oil
than all his Italians can save while-
digging his pipe lines.
But Harriman ancl Rockefeller and
Armour cannot make wealth by all
this monkey business.
The mon who make wealth must
labor,in the fields, factories, mills
mines' and workshops.
Little children can make wealth' by-
ev'eii their feeble toil.
Mothers ..can make wealth by labor,
but these men, women and. children
make little money.
Twenty ...millions of men, more or
less, actually labor, in this country
and make billions of wealth, but they
have in the end little money.   '  ,
A few men juggle wealth and make
lots of money, while working men .who
produce wealth sometimes get enough
food, clothing and shelter to enable
them to keep out of the poorhouse.
If you. are interested, therefore, in
mines go to Wall street ancl monkey
with the market,, .don't go into the
mines and produce ore.
If are Interested in transportation,
go down to Wall street' and - juggle
with stocks; don't grab a switch and
think you aro the cheese.
If you are interested -in steel and
want to get rich, - don't spend your
lime sweating before the furnace,' get
busy in the market.
For there are lots of ways to make
money, but there is only one way to
make wealth.

a country editor has nothing to do between -press   days.»   Business - runs
along automatically. When paper bills
come due money drops offcthe trees
with which to pay them. Subscribers
vie with each other to see who can

the way the news hunts up the editor
Is    also    pleasant   to    contemplate.
There   Is   something really strange

Experimental work conducted in a
Yorkshire colliery, with a' view to
'solving the problem of rescue work,
where it was sought to produce such
conditions as prevail in a mine after,
a disaster, by he construction of a
large gallery filled with deadly fumes:
arid obstacles to imitate fallen roof,
sides'; etc., placed in the way of the
fescue corps, into which colliers, well
equipped with breathing apparatus,
safely entered, gave such stimulus to
inventors to devise improved apparatus that as a result six rescue stations have been established in England, one in Wales, oue in Scotland
nnd a dozen more in project in various parts of the United Kingdom.
In Austria the law requires a pneu-
mataphore be kept in order and readiness for every 100 miners employed."
The government permits the coal owners the choice of four approved types
of breathing apparatus, but the mining office- may authorize the use of
any new appliance approved in future. -
In'the different states and districts
of Germany the regulations vary according to the natural conditions of
tlie. mines, but' as evidence of the
stringency of the law it may be mentioned that no fewer than 700 sets
of breathing appliances are kept ready
for use „ in the Dortmund district
alone, and in the Breslau-district no
mine has less "than two sets, the government, mining engineer being , empowered .to *■ order any number he
deems fit.
In France all mines employing more
than 100 persons under ground upon
one shift" must be ' furnished with
breathing apparatus, the number
ranging from two to six per inine0 according to' size, gassy nature, number of., workers, etc., and dodble
brigades of not, less than eight trained
men must be kept for every set of
rescue appliances. Some interesting
experiments in the utility of safety
chambers have been conducted recently in Franco, ancl as a result some
of the leading colliery companies are
putting "blind" galleries, supplied
with compressed air, water,' food, etc.,
and signal arrangements in their pits.
In Holland a number of mine workers must.bo trained to rescue work,
_nrid-sets-o£-ap*oaratus_-must_equal_onQ_
for evory ,50 miners employed.
In Belgium there must be a breathing appliance for every 200 underground workers in fiery mines of the
second third degree, with trained
rescue brigades of not less than four
men per set of apparatus. A leading
company is organizing a well-equipped rescue station, stnffed with 25
picked and trained men, who know
every Inch of the .company's mines.—

It menus double responsibility? Hot!
What business has a working man to
think of furnishing food, clothing and
shelter to his life partner? Let her
go to work and earn her own in addition to doing the housework. It Is
all very ensy. All you have to do is
curb your desires and remember that
you are a workingman, one wbo produces, nnd therefore have no right to
feel about this thing differently than
you should. All you havo, to do is
marry early.
What of the children?
Agnin I tell you ono of tho most
dlsngroeabio hnd annoying experiences Is to talk with a workingmnn.
Too mnny questions aro nskod. Children? Well, first of all, you have nb
business to havo any, But If you

have always been unappreclative
wretches. They have never-appreciated the men who enme ancl gave tliem
fine advice, even though happiness Is
so easily gotten. All one has to do
Is marry early and mako his businoss
his pleasure.
Are you going to ask again how one
can marry early under tho present,
system, and how ho can make work
his pleasure If ho has to work more
than Is good for him?
I would gladly answer you, but I
forgot lo ask my banker adviser
about It. In fact ho was too busy
making money to think of thoso who
have no money. IJut let mo* glvo you

DIAGNOSIS CORRECT; REMEDY FTJTILI.
IF TIIE QUESTION were asked, who is the most
prominent figure in the British political world
today, we venture to remark that the majority
would unhesitatingly reply "David Lloyd George."
As Chancellor of the Exchequer his utterances
carry far more weight than if voiced by "a less
prominent individual, and as an. evidence of tho
recognition of conditions that have been forced
upon him as a result of knowledge gained by his
administration of tlie Old-Age Pension Act, he
made a speech a few weeks ago at the City Temple
in London, regarding the distribution of wealth,
which furnishes excellent food for thought.
Dealing with the unrest that prevails all-over
the civilized world, he averred THAT' NEITHER
FREE TRADE NOR PROTECTION WAS A
REMEDY, BUT THAT A COMPLETE CHANGE
IN SOCIAL CONDITIONS WAS' NECESSARY,
WITH 'THE STATE TAKING TIIE LEAD.
Furthermore, he urged the reduction of armaments all around—they, now cost £500,000,000
(Five Hundred Million Pounds) a year—and the
opening up of the land for agricultural and dwelling purposes.
.. Whatever is done, the remedy must be a bold
one.   Thc time has "como for a, thorough ovcrhaul-
A N ORDER chas been issued by the superin-
"** tendent of schools that teachers shall "act in
the capacity of truant officers to which great
objection is made. They have been requested to
ascertain the cause of pupils absences by making
either personal call at the homes of the delin-.
quents or calling up by phone. No excuses are to
be accepted from the brothers or sisters of those
who fail to put in appearance.
• * Some such instance may arise as did once in a
country school. The teacher, an old maid and a
strict disciplinarian, during an-epidemic of measles
insisted upon all absentees bringing a note to explain the cause of their absence and one .little
girl who had been away the day before and returning to school upon being asked if she had
brought a note replying in the , negative, was
ordered to be sure to come the following day with
the /required missive, and next. morning this was
the message received: * --    ■,
■ Dear Miss Smith: I kept Annie at home , day
before yesterday because I had twins, but I don't
think it's catching.
Yours truly,        MRS. SARAH BROWN.

this fact hns so affected the* Cubans* th_t they are

"Out of 420,000 adults that die in the course of
■a'year, five-fifths leave no property which it is
worth 'anyone's while to pick up—a few articles
of cheap clothing," and, perhaps a little furniture,
which would hardly pay'to rent if it were sold
by the broker's man.   Out of £300,000,000 (Three
Hundred Millions Pounds) that passes' annually at
death, about half belongs to something under 2,000
persons.    I saw it suggested by one able writer
that most of the destitution  that prevails was
traceable to the thriftlessness and waste among
the wage-earning classes.   I do* not know whether
' the gentleman who wroto that article ever tried
his hand at keep a family and saving up on'20
shillings a week."
According to his figures £8 is thc cost of the
up-keep oC armament annually   paid   by   every
ltoiiseliold in the British Isles..-
'.hi alluding to the popular fallacy thai, as lho
rich find employment and pay wagos, they nro
to Ihal, extent rendering a service to tho community, he slates that it is "quite the reverse.
Tliey are withdrawing a large number of capable
mon and women from useful and productive work,"
In this instance he* is referring more particularly
to lho idlo rich.
The above observations are certainly significant,
cioiiHiiloring Uie soun...; but tlio remedies advanced of rendering the occupancy of the hind
more easy to acquire will by no means improve
the condition., of tho producing class as n class;
and this Lloyd flcorgc ought, to know, as woll an

•'.tpi'iisim are lessened, then tlio wagos paid are
subject, to I'liii-tualic'n cM-iiKf'C'Uent upon tho law of

ACCORDING to thc report of a special correspondent to "Mines and'Minerals" the death
toll of 78 would very probably have been sensibly
increased had not ten miners belonging to tho
night shift, been in jail for gambling. From this
wo might draw the conclusion that it is safer 1o lie
in jail for gambling than in a coal mine working
for a livelihood.
Another significant feature which must puzzle
our wliat inocnlivo-would-therc-ho critics, is the
statement, that when General Manager Ludlow
noted the fervor thc rescuers were removing the

A STUDY OF
FLAME CAPS
An Apparatus to Demonstrate the Height of Flame,
Cap Produced by a Given
Percentage of Gas.
By George Hiram Winstanley, F. G. S. [not prepared ihe mixture himself, and
For the purpose of detecting and
determining the amount of firedamp
in mines, and with' the object of pro-
. viding a standard of delicacy and accuracy which ihe safety lamp is not
supposed to possess, various instruments   and   appliances   of   undoubted | ^"~g£ "0"n"  1!le   flam0   of  the
merit have been brought forward from
time to time.
Most of these appliances, however,
have been relegated to the laboratory, for the uso of experts under
special circumstances, and have not
come into general use for the purpose of thc daily inspections to be
made by colliery firemen ancl deputies.
A notable exception is the gas-detecting appliance which bears lhe
name of ihe newly elected president
n of this society; ancl thc explanation
most probably is that the Garforth
gas detector is tho simplest posslblo
addition to an ordinary safety-lamp;
which for obvious reasons is, and will
probably continue to be, the most
suitable gas-detecting appliance for
use in the hands of the colliery fire
man.
A colliery fireman cannot De expected to encumber himself with a
variety of scientific instruments,
even if he possesses the -needful training enabling him to use them. It is
therefore necessary .that" he should
be ablo to use his safety lamp', as a
gas-detecting appliance, with reasonable intelligence and skill, • and that
he should know not  only how to de-
. tect the prcscn of firedamp, ,but to
estimate its amount with approximate
accuracy.
In tlie hands of a skilful observer,
one who not only knows what, to look
for,* but who is also able to appreciate tlie indications, that lie observes, there can be little doubt that
the safety lamp is capable of detecting and determining, with reasonable accuracy, comparatively, small
percentages of firedamp.
Nevertheless, amongst those who,
are familiar -with gas in mines, and
It's appearance on the flame of a
safety lamp, there is a somewhat wide
diversity of opinion as to the amount
of gas indicated by caps of a given
size, whilst very few—if any—colliery
' firemen know, of their own knowledge
what percentage of gas is indicated
by a particular cap. *,
It appears to be accepted somewhat
generally that the smallest percent age
which will produce a complete and'
clearly recognizable cap is about 2Vs.
On  this rpoint,  however,  there  is by
 Y.r\_..i__q ._<_____. qi_ 1 ini t.v .!___,•£_____ v_* I r___.___.
 _»,_■ — AA.W..... ...IM... ._..._.-_■-, .......   « ...   w— *.*.— ».  ._-
found those who do not consider it
to ,be possible to clearly detect 2%
per cent., whilst on the other hand
there are several authorities who
have given special attention to the
subject who affirm that they can detect ancl determlno 2 per cent, or 1
per cent., or even less,
It is not proposed to discuss the
, merits of these diverse opinions, nor
to enter Into any controversy as to
how much or how little can be detected with the safety lamp flame.
The apparatus has been designed
with tho object of avoiding such controversy, ancl an opportunity will
presently ho afforded for each one to
handle a safety lamp on tlio flame of
which a "certain gas cap will bo
visible. It. would bo most Interesting
and instructive If thoso who have had
experience in testing for gas would
express an opinion, or give on estimate of what, in their opinion that
cap indicates.* nnd Riibser-uontly tho
actual composition of tho gaseous
mixture will ho, revealed.
Tlie writer musi frankly ailmll that
when lie first brought, the apparatus
hi I o use, and obsorvod lho cap produced by a known percent oko of gns,
ho wos greatly Hiirprised; anil hod ho
therefore known its composition, he
would have given quite an. incorrect
estimate of the' percentage of gas
present.
There can be very little doubt that
caps produced by various percentages
safety
lamp do not appear the same to
everybody. A cap which may be
quite distinct to one observer may be
barely visible to another, or it may
present a different appearance. Every
one is said to be more or less colorblind lo certain colors or shades of
colors, and in firedamp caps one has
to, deal with the palest shades of tlie
colors most likely to he confused.
However this may be, the apparatus
now under consideration will enable
anyone to familiarize himself with the
caps produced by ' known percentages of gas as they appear to him—
not as described to him by some one
else. ' ■
The Royal Commission " on Mines
emphasizes this need for the most
careful study of gas Indications, and
recommends that:
"No man should be eligible for appointment as fireman or deputy unless he is over 25 years of,age, and
has had at least five years' practical
experience in a mine, and has obtained a certificate from a mining
school or other place, approved by
the secretary of* state, as to his
ability to make accurate tests for
firedamp."
It was In anticipation of some such
recommendation tliat the apparatus
now under consideration was designed
ancl with its help, when the time
comes, tlie writer thinks that the sec-'
rotary of state will be satisfied that
the mining department of the Manchester university is in a position to
give the needful instruction, on practical lines, * and to grant the certificates referred  to.*****
Recognizing that to be of practical
value for the purpose o£ training cql-
llery firemen—who cannot be expected to he familiar with the usual
equipment—this appliance, or any
oilier for the same purpose, must bo
free from all complication tending to
confuse them, the writer has en-'
deavored to devise a means of studying gas caps thereby the person
undergoing instruction could take an
ordinary safety lamp into his -own
hands and use it just as he uses it,
or ought to use it, in the mine.
In many appliances' for a similar
purpose the safety.lamp is contained
in a box or chamber, and* the observer,
,(,*,-n___c____ i !";=_tX, t*r,ii_...=a___u,jiwln-ur__.Hn £_**)„
may not handle it. The writer's experience of colliery firemen lead^n
him to the conclusion that very many
of them would look with suspicion
upon a safety lamp which they could
not handle; and one cannot blame
them. They want to be perfectly
satisfied with what they use, and If
the Instruction offered to them leaves
ony doubt in their minds, it is of
little value.
„It also necessary that thoro shall
bo extreme accuracy in the gas percentages In use. Those receiving instruction must bo able to follow the
whole process, They must see tho
mixture prepared, and In such a way
that they are convinced that tho mixture contains tho percentage' of gas
with which the Instructor proposes to
demonstrate.
When tho apparatus Is usod in tho
daytime, It will also bo nocessary to
proyldo a room or chamber from
which all light con ho oxfcludod, to
ur.iihlo tho flumo to bo dourly seen,
although with tho aid of a pockot

zontal neck close to the bottom,,, as
well as the usual neck at the top.
This vessel is carefully graduated
with marks corresponding to Va percent of the volume .of the larger or
mlxing vessel. The mixing vessel is
a copper cylinder of such internal
capacity as to contain enough air to
keep the safety lamp burning for
about an hour. With the exception of.
a numbers of ordinary taps at the top
and bottom, a water-level gauge, and
a simple arrangement for thoroughly
mixing the gas and air, this cylinder
is otherwise perfectly plain.
The lamp may "be- any standard
safety lamp with the gauze protected
with the usual shield or bonnet. The
air-inlet holes, however, are carefully
closed up, w_hile a perforated 'ring
tube encircles1-the gauze,, inside the
shield, and delivers air al exactly
the same point at which it would
otherwise enter in the ordinary way.
Hy this means the lamp is prevented
fiom taking any air to support combustion, except that which is supplied
to it, and this is done,. of course,
fiom the mixing vessel'already mentioned.
Personally, the. writer has so far
only. experimented , with the Xaylor
bifold burner safety lamp, of the
Mi-saut type. He finds thai the dual
character which this flame assumes,
when reduced for gas testing, makes
it especially suitable for the purpose,'
whilst thc screw adjustment for raising ond h>w.'?ng the flame is i ,'..r
better arrangement than the common
wire  pricker.
Tho double flame (when reduced In
size the flame, on tho bifold burner
divides into two separate flames)
gives increased heating surface, which
increases its cap-producing capabilities; and when it is, viewed edgeways, the observer looks through two
separate and distinct- caps, and is
thus enabled to see the indication bf
very small percentages with doubled
intensity. ; .
A narrow strip of dead, black paint
on the inside of the lamp glass is.
one of the best and simplest aids
to the easy recognition of the cap.*
The  Apparatus* in   Use.
If it be- intended to experiment
with a 2Va per cent, mixture, tlie copper cylinder is filled, with water until
the overflow tap shows it. to be quite
full, when .of course, all air is displaced. Tho glass gas holder is now
connected with the copper cylinder,'
the upper neck being connected with
the top of .the cylinder and the lower
neck with one of the water taps al
the bottom. Doth taps are opened,
ancl water begins to flow out of the
mixing vessel into the gas holder,
displacing, of course, an equal vol;
ume of gas, which passes into the
copper cylinder to take the place of
the water.
The rise of water in the glass vessel Ms.* carefully watched until it
reaches the. mark indicating,--the de-
"sir^.-percentage, wlilcli-iTT-he-pfe§r
ent experiment is 2V_ At the same
time,la small water gauge enables"one
lo avoid any error due to increase or
decrease of pressure.. Both taps are
then closed, and the glass vessel may
be disconnected.
There has now been passed into
the copper mixing vessel a volume
of gas equal to-2Vs per cent, of its
capacity, ancl It only remains to draw
off the bulk of-water (of course letting in air) until the water-level
gauge shows that 100 .volumes displaced by the gas, In other words,
there have been drawn Into the cylinder 97Vi volumes of air, to be
mixed with tho 2V£ volumes of gas
hy a fow rapid revolutions, each way,
of the mixing arrangement,
Tho mixture Is then ready for the
lamp. This lias beon previously
lighted, and the top suspended above
the oil vessel, so as to mako lt
warm. It Is not possible to'screw
the oil vessel Into position until aflor
tlio lump has beon connected with
the copper cylinder and tho flow of
air stari od. Tho lamp cannot tako
air from tho surrounding atmosphere,
so, thnt It will not burn until the nlr
supply from tho mixing cylinder is
provldod. Thin Is dono hy connecting tho coppor cylinder with Iho wa-
tor'supply and allowing the water (o
fill it. slowly, thus displacing Iho gas
and air mixture, which Is convoyed
to ihu wifely lump by moons of a
flexible metallic tubo.
The air and gu-i enlor the shield
at exactly the some point ns that ot
which lho nlr would ordinarily ontor,
and there nro o mit'l'li-li-nt numbor of
perforations to enable the air to flow
gently into the lamp without cro-rillng

seen that whilst the lump Ih quito

to*■ nt  wllh n  lamp burnlm; paraffin
the heavy-oil flame, or to that of a
volatile spirit, such as colzalene. He
did not think that he was in a very
good position to judge the percentage
because "his previous experience was
not with a lamp burning paraffin, if
he had seen the cap on a lamp burn-"
ing spirit-he would have thought that
there was no moro than 1 per cent,
of gas in the mixture. His point was
that he did not know from' his own
experince where, between the oil and
spirit flames, the paraffin flame
camo in as regarded .temperature,
which' must affect- the dimensions of
the cap.   -        ■    ,    * °
George H. Hollingworth' (Manchester)" asked whether there would
be any difference in the cap. caused
by the difference in the pressure outside a^d inside. Again, would hot
'the gas" given off by the combustion
affect the flame? -For instance, if
rape-seed, oil were being used as
against paraffin, would the result be
different?
G. H. Winstanley, in reply 1o
various questions and comments, said
that his sole desire was to bring before the members, in an impressive a
manner as possible, the fact that
probably -no two individuals would receive exactly the same impressions
from the faint cap, imd that it would
therefore be futile for the authorities
to publish a statement or standard ,to
the effect that such a proportion of
gas would produce a certain size and
appearance of ■ cap,, The statement
might be quite true for the person
who was responsible for describing
tho appearances, hut the sense of
vision, hearing, taste, smell, and
touch differed in different individuals.
He was prepared to admit that \vh_i
he mado tho first experiment with
the apparatus, if he had not known
evening he considered that ordinary
coal gas would suffice;''but he mignt
remind them that recent investigations carried on- by Prof. G. II.
Thompson and E.t Bessell Whalley
seemed to. show that there was very
little,* if any, difference in tho caps
produced by certain percentages of
coal gas aud the same percentages,
of methane:
George H. Hollingworth , (Manchester), in moving a vote of thanks
to Mr. Winstanley, said that the apparatus which they had seen was distinctly educative, and "that there was
need for such education was shown
by the different views-which members—experts in --gas—had taken of
the percentage of firedamp in the cap
produced. It wa's clear that there
was a want of definite knowledge.
He did not think' that anybody who
had not gone through the previous
elaborate experiments could really
form an idea as to what percentage
of gas there .was persent' when they
examined the flame. However, Mr.
Winstanley had shown them a practical way of ..ascertaining what a
cap • really meant, and as such his
device was of a distinct educative
valuo.
Georgo 13. Harrison (II. M. Inspector of Mines, .Swinton),* in seconding
the proposal, said that ho had had
that night an opportunity that ho
very much appreciated. He had often
read tho percentages, and was afraid
that he often forgot what he read, or
at any rate felt uncertain,,, when
forming an, opinion. Now," however,
he had seen 2 per cent, of firedamp
In something like three-eights of an
inch of cap, and he would be. better
able to judge in future. He was thankful to Mr. Winstanley for giving them
this opportunity.   He preferred to see

the  composition  of, thc  mixture,  he  the lamP antl caP t" tlie °Pen> as tlieJ'
would have given an incorrect estimate. In fact, so far did he doubt
what he saw that ho went through
\be whole experiment again,,including
the recalibration of the apparatus.
Tho mixture used in the-demonstration' which they had just witnessed
had beon prepared only half an hour
before the commencement of the
meeting, 'in the presence of a member. ' It was a 2-per cent, mixture of
coal gas and air; namely, two volumes of gas and 98 volumes of air.
In reply to Mr. Eice, he said, that
there could be. no doubt that the
character, of the illuminating oil used
in the lamp had a considerable effect
upon the cap produced by a given
percentage of gas. The hotter the
flame was, the larger would be the
cap. ,. He could not at the moment
answer Mr. Eice positively, but he
believed that the temperature of high
flash-point petroleum compared more
nearly with that of the heavy so-
called ."colza',' oils than that of the
highly inflammable spirit "used in
some lamps.
As a matter of-fact, he ventured to
say  that'all    the    so-called . "colza"
oils" cohtained_a cerfaiiTliToportiorrdf"
petroleum. Indeed, ho believed' such
a mixture was advantageous, about
one'part" of petroleum to-two parts
of heavy oil. The result was a free
burning oil, giving a clean flame without tending to clog the wick.
Doctor' Cadman, in his report to
the Royal Commission, explained that,
in order to get a lamp which satisfied
him for his purpose, he had to procure colza oil. Now, pure colza oil
was most difficult to procure, except
In small quantities; but this was not
the only difficulty; there* was a far
more serious one; namely, that a
safety lamp filled with pure colza oil
would only burn for a very short
time, and would be quite useless for
practical purposes. Tho oil thickened and clogged up tho capillaries of
the wick.
All commorclol safety-lump oils,
oven those which professed to be puro
colza, contained a cortaln proportion
of petroleum, and it would always bo
possible, when lumps using those oils
wore burning In puro air, to find a
certain outer halo suggostlvo of the
presence of a small quantity of gas,
This In Itself wns not, a disadvantage,

The resolution was carried with acclamation.
■ George 1-1. Winstanley, in responding jo tho .vote of thanks, said that
he had been working on the ' appliance for some time. It arose, as
he had told them, partly in anticipation of some such' recommendation as
the one lo which he had referred in
the second report of°the Royal Commission on Alines, and partly out of
the experience1 he had gained in connection with the enquiry into the
only colliery explosion of serious
dimensions that had occurred in the
Lancashire coal field during the last
25 years. It was evident that something of the kind was hrgently needed, and having brought his appliance
inlo what he believed was a practically useful condition, he felt* IV to be
his duty to make the first communication "of his results, through the Manchester Geological and Mining Society, to the the institution of-mining
engineers, whose members were best
able to recognize any useful features
that the appliance might possess.
—He—wished-againT"however~to—em"**-
phasize the fact that his appliance
was not an apparatus to detect the
presence of gas. It was simply an
appliance to enable them -the more
intelligently' and accurately to carry
out the best-known method of gas
detection' with the ordinary safety
lamp.—Mines  and  Minerals.

Si calcola che il lavoro produca 21
bilioni dl dollari di richezza annual-
mente in questo paese.. Ma il lavoro
riceve appena sel bilioni di dollari.
La differenza tra la ricchezza prodot-
ta dal lavoro e la poi-'zione ricevuta
dal, lavoro in forma di salario, am-
monta a 18 bilioni di dollari i quali
vanno nei forzieri dl chi non ha
faticato.
Questa statlstica spiega le cause
che producono il panico e le crisi.- I
18 bilioni di dollari di ricchezza sono
il soprappiu che ingombra il mercato
e che 1 lavoratori non possono com-
perare per il semplice fatto che essi
non hanno ricevuto che il 25 per
cento di quanto hanno prodotto. Se
per un dollaro di merce che voi pro-
ducete e lanciate sul mercato voi
ricevete solo 25 soldi, voi di questo
dollaro di merce non potete comper-
arne che un quarto, e ne lasciate i
tre quarti ad ingombrare il mercato.
Di quattro cappelli, di quattro paia
di scarpe ecc appena' un capelhv un
paio di scarpe, ecc. possono essere
comperati dai lavoratori, perche* essi
hanno ricevuto' appena il prezzo d'un
cappello, d'un paio di scarpe, ecc.
, I tre cappelli, le tre paia di scarpe,
i tre quarti' della- merce che riman-
gono invenduti fanno ■ eliminuire la
produzione, aumentare la disoccupa-
zione, nascere le crisi.
■Perche-, le fabbriche di cappelli
ddvrebbero produrre nuovi cappelli
dal momento che su ogni cento cappelli prodotti prima, 75 sono rimasti
invenduti?
Dunque le fabbriche rimangono in-
attive in attesa di poter smaltire i
cappelli accumulati nei magazzini. Ma
se le fabbriche" rimangono chiuse i
lavoratori non guadagnano piu nulla,
non possono piu comperar nulla e
■soffrono—della—mancanza—del—neces-
sario, vanho scalzi e a sapo scoperto
mentre f .magazzini rigurgitano di
scarpe e di cappelli invenduti.
E    la    crisi finanziaria  e    ali-
mentare imperversa.
I lavoratori possono, volendo, ov-
vlare a questi dlsastrl finanziarl:
facendosi pagare.un dollaro di salario
per ogni dollaro di ricchezza prodotta.
Ma 1 lavoratori preferiscono far
battezzare 1 flgliuoli pagare i bosses,
e far gli scabs tn tempo di elezlonl,
per un po' dl birra.
- E le crisi d i panic! continuornn-
no 11 loro giro periodico, risplonda
suirorizzonte 11 solo repubblicano o
quello clemocratico.

THE   POACHER."
By O. W. H.
"Don't go, Joe; don't go."
The words, spoken as they were in
a sick woman's weak voice, appealed
with almost Irresistible forco to the
man to whom they were-addressed.
For a moment Joe Collins hesitated,
oen hand on the latch and his face
turned towards the speaker.
"Don't go, Joe; for may sake, don't
go!"
"I shall," ho. answered, doggedly.
"As there's a God In llonvon It ain't
no crime. -Heavon knows I'vo looked
for work, begged for It till I'm sick,
an' I can't stnnd it no longer. Whnt
right 'as tho Squlro to ovorythin'. an

'as 'e? Ain't you ns much to mo ns
'Is flno lady Is to Mm? Ain't our kids

Why should wo starvo 'oro llko dogs
whon thoro's enough out thoro for us
nil nn' to spnro,"
Ilo wnvod his hnnd townrdH tho
groat strotch of moorland and plantation known as tho Croft or oslnto,
"I don't wnnt -no phonsnnts," no
continued; "n couplo of rnbblts will

Suddenly he stopped. A cry of exultation broke from the men behind.
It acted on the hunted man as nothing else would have done.
He turned sharply round and faced
them.
Dang!

Throo answering'shots, nnd Joe

fell senseless lo tho onrth.
And away on the moorsldo a nick
womnn prayed for her hinjbnnd's safe

In.due course Joe wns brought beforo the magistrates—four of them,
filled with wisdom and a vast souse
of tliolr own Importance. „As Joe was

MACY  WILL AND ISABELLE GILBERT AS "THE TWINS," IN "A BACHELOR'S* HONEYMOON,"   GRAND THEATER,   MONDAY,   NOV.   1,4:
THE SPECIAL  PICTURES AT
THE   GRAND   THEATdR
Despite the inclement weather prevailing on Thursday night, which
naturally had a tendency to make one
inclined to stay indoors, over 200 paid
admission to the Miners' theater to
see the moving pictures. The old
adage "too many cooks spoil the
broth" was fully exemplified, but with
this differen "too much brandy
spoils the pie."
* The Pathd Gazette, consisting of
such films as the Mauretania leaving
New York dock, Aquatic Sports at
Lowestoft; fragments of play between
Tottenham and Sheffield Wednesday;
may be said to be an augury of the
days when the printed newspaper will
bo obsolete! The effect of a visit
by a chronic grouch to Dr. Makeulaff
, was decidedly contagious as the ex-
■■• aggerated facial expressions flashed on
the canvas. ■  .,
The Tyrant of Jerusalem." .
The chief feature, however,- was the,
— "TyrantT)i^JeT*irsaienn"~a~TatlicS   film"
of 1,500 feet, clone in  colors, which
produced an effect that    was    truly
marvelous.   The cast of this religious
drama from the most talented Paris:
ian theaters, consisting as it does of
, world-famous actor's, and actresses,
delinfated the respective characters in
masterly style. The stage settings,
and the costuming of the dramatic
personae, were so artistically arranged, so vivid in color, that the eye
was completely dazzled with brilliancy.
.Orlando received courtesies at the
hands of two young Christians,
Aladin, tho. Tyrant, as a punishment
for the profanation of .tho mosque by
tho Christians condemns thom to
death on flic* funoral pyre. Sophronia
and her lover are being martyred
when Orlando brings word to Aladin
that the Infidels havo been defeated
by the Amazons ancl noting the awful
predicament of tho two young Christians, In return for favors rocolvod
alio Intercedes on their behalf and
thoy aro saved.
This film will bo again exhibited
tonight (Frldny land nny who have
not aeon it will miss a treat if they
do not nvnll themselves of this opportunity to witness one of tho mont
wonderful and oxqulslto specimens of
tho colored clnomatograplilo art.
(he strongly emphasized the Clerke-
and he collared him, the Slave, I
mean. No, we didn't see the Chink,
but we saw the other feller coming
oiit. He had the handcuffs on, and
his face was all scratched and everything, and one eye was black. By gee,
bis face WAS bleeding. He looked
pretty bad, you bet. A big .knife?
You bet it was a big knife, as big
as this* (this time he stretched his
hands to indicate something in the
neighborhood of a foot). I guess that
Chink must have skidooed when the
other fellow let go of him, and I
reckon I'd have skiddooed too if ..'d
had a Slav after me with' a knife
about 18 inches long. Yes it was 18
inches for a cert. He worked for
How, Foon, the Chink did. When Bob
Clerke took the Slav to jail he kept
hollering: Mamma! Mamma! No,
no, not Bob Clerke; the Slav. He
tried to jump back when Bob Clerke
took him in, but Bob said: Come on
now, this way.'. I guess ■ he • didn't
know where Clerke's hotel was. Yes,
thy've, got bars there, sure, but they
don!Ls_elLbooze,_jJ,v_hat-,3__that?_Thej'ill
want me for a, witness. Well,.I don't
care anyhow. Some people say they
get bread and water in jail, but when
a fellow, got locked up ono time-. I
looked through the bars . and they
wero having all ckinds of, food. • I
reckon some of'em think Bob Clerke's
hotel is not such a, bad placo after
all.
Tho name of tho Slav Is Charles
Bouchuk, recently arrived from Crom-
ford, Alta., whero he was employed
on the railway as a section hand.
