ROSSLAND, B. C, Sept. 23.—Tho
Rossland miners decided to accept the
terms offered'by the management «nd
thus a strike which would have had
disastrous' results' has been avoided.
The company offered 25 cents increase
for underground work, the surface to
be as before, The voting-resulted 240
to accept and 100 to refuse.
As a direct result of tlie miners'
strike oh Vancouver Island theer is
every prospect of a coal famine all
along-the-Pacific coast and shipping
■interests are becoming concerned as .to
■the outcome of the dispute. Tramp
steamer operators, with vessels under
charter to transport wheat, lumber and
flbui. to the' United Kingdom and the
Far East, fear that the labor dispute
will completely disorganize their business.- l        ".''"-. -
• LONDON, Oct. 2.—At the conference of the labor federation of Swansea, President Smlllle In his opening
address said' that the mine owners
were now better off than . they - were
before the recent strike. While legislation had added-threepence or four-
pence to the' cost of production, prices
had risen eighteen pence to two -shillings, a Hon. The only.way to protect
the public in'these^instances; he;said,'
was to have state'ownership.
AUGUSTA, Ga., Sept. 30.'—One" citizen was killed, another probably, fatally shot and a third,.less seriously
injured, while a^ number of -persons
were,fired upon by the state guardsmen- called out today to protect the
power plant of the, local street railway
company from possible violence of Its
striking employes. ■ The guardsmen
were summoned when it was reported
that the plant was to be dynamited tonight and they hastily established a
"dead line." Alfred Dorn was killed
whan he and Ben A. Baker attempted
to pass the lino in a buggy. " When
challenged, Baker whipped up his
horse and the soldiers fired. Dorn
was literally shot to pieces and Baker
was shot but not dangerously wounded. Robert Christie attempted to drive
through the lines in an automobile
and it is said did not hear the sentry's challenge. He had gone but, a
few feet when he w;as shot through
the lungs and at the hospital it is
said, he is not expected to live. Chas!
Wilson, his wife and- child in an automobile,-were fired on but escaped unhurt. .Soldiers also shot at a boy on
a motorcycle, but did not hit him.   *
News of the shooting spread rapidly
and attracted thousands to the scene.
At the same time great crowds were
assembling In the mill district which
was the scene of, last night's rioting.
Just before dark the West'End'sympathizers spiked" the long Broad street

That-the story, told bf the Waldo
bold-up by the Station Agent looks
somewhat fishy Is tho opinion of
Chief Minty. The chief, seen today,
said: "I took three constables down
there, as well as two G. N. detectives,
and a G. N. auditor. After fully Investigating tho matter and taking Into'
consideration all circumstances ln connection with the-holdup, I am of opinion that no hold up took place. Tho
agent has Blnce boon suspended by
the company, and is now, I bollovo, at
Kiillsplel, and, tlio company has an
auditor lh charge of the Waldo Station. His story doos not ring true,
nnd In some respects Is contradictory.
Another curlouB fact is that Doll, the
agent, has mado an offer to tho company to pay tho amount, $217,00 back
nt tlto rate of $50 a month, If thoy
will allow him to retain his position.
This In Itself lookB fishy. I, however, understand his books aro ln good

Its Constitution,
Origin and Uses
Coal is a substance of very variable
composition. There are a number of
varieties of it, and each class contains
substances differing widely from each
other, both in appearance, in behavior
, when burning, 'and in composition.
There is no standard coal.. The term
coal is a popular one, and has never
been closely defined. In popular Ian-
guage it is spoken of as a mineral.
In a scientific sense it is not a mineral,
and only general usages sanctions the
use of the term mineral applied to
eoal. We speak of the mineral wealth
of a nation or. country. In nearly
all cases when the term Is used it includes coal, indeed In many cases other
substances which are true minerals aro
not thought of when the expression
mineral wealth is used—it refers chiefly to the supplies of coal which avo
"available. A mineral is defined rts an
inorganic substance, that,is in no form
-tfr shape hajs life played any part in its
origin. Now whatever may be the
opinions held as to how coal has been
' formed, there is a very general agreement on the oi'.'i.-. origin of coal, thai
it has original au from in.} m-iwih.
■ primarily ol sou. forpi oi \ "i-c t.iniJii
Allhoigh it ia,-i co union practice to
speak of coal as a mineral, it is well to
remember that a distinction is sometimes .drawn between coals and minerals. In 1S53 a law suit took place
in Edinburgh to decide whether a variety of cannel coal *-known as tor-
banite was a coal or a mineral. The
lessees of Torbanehill at that time
' had power to work coals, but not minerals, and it was claimed by the owners (hat torbanito was a mineral and
hot a coal. Tho courts, however, "decided that torbanlte was a coal, and
that the lessees were within , their
rights. ' (Arbour in The Natural History of Coal). In such a case the term
mineral was reserved for substances
like iron or galena, the ore, of copper
and other metals which, so far as we
know, do not owe their existence to
organic growths.
The classification of coals, is a very
difficult matter,' and .perhaps no single'
method is -quite satisfactory.     As in
these articles the constitution of coal,'
from a commercial standpoint, has already -been dealt with, we may proceed*
to classify coals from the standpoint
of fixed carbon they contain.
Gaseous—50 to 60 p.c. fixed carbon;
50 to 40 p.c. of volatile matter,'
Bituminous (house, manufacturing
and Gas)—GO to 8,2 p.c. fixed carbon;
40 to T8 p.c. volatile matter. ,
\ Semi-Bituminous (Steam or Dry
Coals)—82 to 88 p.c.'fixed carbon; 18
to 12 p:c. volatile matter.
'Anthracite—88 to-96 p.c. fixed carbon; 12 to 4 volatile* matter.
Another classification adopted is based on the percentage of volatile hydrocarbons alone.
Up to 8'por cent of volatile hydrocarbons the coals are anthracite.
From 8 to 1G per cent of volntll'o
hydrocarbons tho cohls are semi-anthracite.
From 10 to 2(1 per cent of volatile
hydrocarbons tho coals are short flamed.
From 20 to H2 per cent of volatile
hydrocarbons tho coals are normal
Oyer ?.2 per cont of volatile hydro-
carbons the co:i1b are longflnmed.

quality for;steam raising are mined
in North Staffordshire, but their use
on ocean going liners and warships
is handicapped by , the distance of
North Staffordshire from the '•- seaboard. Good steam coals are mined
in other districts. A portion of - the
famous .Barnsley Bed' of Yorkshire is
highly esteemed as a steam coal, and
extensively used in the North Sea and
the Baltic The "hard" coals of
Northumberland and some of those
mined in North and East Durham are
used for the same purpose.
The properties esteemed in a coking
It will lie noted ..that passing frour
wood to anthracite, there "is a gradual
increase in the percentage of carbon,
a reduction in that of hydrogen, and
a still. greater diminution'in the proportion of oxygen. These figures must
be taken as typical only, for each class
varies iri composition* and sometimes
one class merges into another in' such
a way that it is difficult,exactly where
to place particular "samples. Tables
such as this have given rise to' the
so-called theory o£ "peat to anthracite," that^is, regarding peat as t.>e
childhood and anthracite as the old
age of coal;:_ind the-process by which
anthracite has been formed has been
by a gradual one of carbonisation; in
nature a process „has gone- on-very"
similar to what takes.place^n a" modern coke oven, the volatile'dr gaseous
elements have been "driven-off until
the residue is almost entirely compos-.,
ed of carbon. This theory requires
modification, its will be shown later.
If it were correct then the most perfect
coal are that the coal on burning ad- cotl1 would.be.graphite, which is near:
hercs together, forming a firm coko,
which contains littlo ash and sulphur.
The coking property,Is a valuable one.
Iu districts producing free-burning or
non-coking coals, the smnll 'coals is
often almost, worthless.     It is consum-
ly pure .carbon, but graphite is not a
fuel because under ordinary circumstances it won't burn. Nor in a practical or "fuel" sense Is antnraclte the
most perfect coal. True it is the
most highly carbonized coal, but jutlg

New  and   Promising   Industry—Desirable Fuel Properties of Briquettes
In the modern method of mining
bituminous • coal large quantities of
clack are produced"; and while in
some sections of the country there is
a market for the slack/for-use iii industrial plants provided with mechanical stokers, in other sections there is
little or no market for it. For this
reason a number of the operators in
Nova Scotia'are considering the; installation of briquetting "plants for'tlie
purpose of converting this slack into
a higher grade'and more suitable fuel.
Plant at the MacKay Mine '
'■ On account' o"f' the friable nature of
the coal mined at the MacKay .Mine
much slack Is made during mining
operations. As. there is little or no
ment installed a briquetting plant with
a capacity "of 10 tons'of briquettes per
hour., This' is'"the first plant to be
installed in Canada for the purpose of
briquetting bituminous coal. Unfor:
tuna'tf-ly it was' damaged by fire during the month of July.
The' same company are also installing two similar units at the Colonial
A'Une, which' are expected to be In
operation this'year.
The briquet.ing.'plants aro of Belgian manufacture and are of the roll
press type.
Tho following is a.short description of the 'MacKay briquetting plant;
The c"oal from the mlno ls screened
over a % Inch screen; tho lump coal
(over %' Inches) is sent to market,
and tho fine coal Is carried by a disc
elevator to a 75 ton bin. Tho coal
is discharged from the bin by chuto
Into a 10 ton concrete pocket situated
at tho brlquottlng plant. The conl
Is then elevated hy n bucket elovntor
to a 3 ton cone hopper. The coal Ib
fed ..from tho hopper to tho disintegrator at any doslred rato of spood liy
moans of a revolving tnblo and plougli
shaped cutter situated'- fit tho bottom of tho hopper.
Tho pitch aftor bolng oriiHhed Is
fed Into tho. disintegrator by moans
of n HlmllarndJiiHtnblo food, From
llio disintegrator to tho mixer whore
Riiporlmatcd steam la added. Tho
honied cool Is then convoyed to tho
roll press by monnn of a spiral conveyor, The hrlqiietlOB nro usually
tioft ;m they come from the jolla but
upon becoming Hllplitly cool lhe.Vi become  hnrd   and   withstand  handling-
very well, - „,      - _   "
, The pitch used as a binder for the
briquettes varies from C to 8 per cent,
of'the weight of the coal. This pitch
is ono of the by-products obtained
from the tar'recovered at .the Domii_-r
ion Iron and Steel Company's coke
oven plants.''      ''      :_..
The briquettes are ovoid in shape.
The briquettes are ovoid in' shape
and have been used with considerable
success upon the Intercolonial Railway for domestic purposes. ,
The Inverness Railway and Coal
Company are also installing a briquetting plant at Inverness,- C.B., - for the
purpose of briquetting the slack made
during tlie mining operations.
Advantages of Briquettes
' Briquettes when properly made with
a suitable binder possess the following advantages .over raw fuel.
1. The, even size .of the briquettes
permits'of a more regular and thoro'
combustion iii the firebox or furnace,
as the speces that exist between adjacent blocks allow of even distribution of air through the fire 'and the
pressure drop through the fire' is also
2. A good briquette holds its shape
in the fire, so that even" when,diking
coals are used"-they" do,not coke together sufficiently to cut -off the air
for combustion and the gases are
burned as fast as-distilled off.
3. Practically no smoke' should be
obtained from the combustion of good
briquettes. "   y
4. Briquettes, generally burn to; a
fine ash rather than a clinker, as in
-the briquetting - process the , mixing
aiid. grinding "thoroughly, distribute
the ash. material, which ,in the raw
fuel exists iri spots and layers arid is
fused into".clinker .instead, of falling
-tbrough-the-graterr-^ yy^S-—~-^-
' . - °        -      _
5. The characteristic, fineness of
the.ash from briquettes allows of keeping 'a better fire, with less attention
and "poking tlian is possible' with raw
fuel under the same conditions.
6. The .evaporation per pound of
fuel is greater from the briquetted
than from the same coai In its natural'
state. This advantage Is maintained
at all rates of evaporation, .
. 7. The,capacity of, a boiler is considerably increased by the use of briquetted fuel!
.,8, The weather-resisting qualities of
many coajs, and especially .lignites,
are greatly Improved by'briquetting;
9. Briquettes appnrently ' give n
longer ,flame than run-of-mlno coal,
10. It Is much easier to raise and
to keep up-steam with briquettes than
with run-of-mlno coal,   .
11. Higher rates .of combustion are
posslblo with brlquottoB niui conseclu-
ontly lilgher power.   . , ^
12. When .properly made'thero is
loss loss from breakage during transportation of briquettes than of run-of-
mlno coal.

yirginiraijCoal Production
In the Charleston jMail issue ot"Mon-'
day, July Sth, «i front page article1 appears that is headed with the,caption,
■,'-1911 Good Coal Year lor West Vir-,
ginia, in Amount Produced.*' Farther
down in the .same' article,appears;the
following: -.. ■'*--",
"West Virginia for 'the last three
years the second'in rank among the
coal producing st.ates,.'-stands almost
alone in one - particular — the low
average price'a.t which its cbal, some
of it the highest, grade'of'bitumino'us
coal produced in the • United States,
brings to the producer." ,.'7    -
If over the Charleston Mail published a true statement'.that is the
one. The coal miner, the actual producer, is the' one who receives such-
low average price for the coal that
he produces. It seems rather strange
to me that the 'Mall in its desire to
make, public the chief reason for the
alleged Industrial Progress of West
Virginia, measured by its .increased
production from year to year,' fails to
make known the prime cause for fchis
rapid development of the coal industry of this great state, secured
through the robbery of the wage-
earners that produce this commodity.     '  ■ -
'. Although West Virginia has made
rapid strides towards the front as a
large producer of coal during the past
few years^ and to one that has not
taken the time nor availed himself
of the .opportunity to analyse . this
proposition, he will.no doubt,be influenced with the thought that his
state is making a magnificent showing
in the industrial field, yes, it is, but
it is to .the discredit of-,the intelligent citizenship of West Virginia,' for
the manner&in which it is secured.
. Let us see if the producers of this
commodity "have secured -the same
proportion of advancement as the increased output of West Virginia would
justify. ' ,
'1st. We find that the mine workers work longer hours per- day than
in any other coal producting state.   ■"
.2nd. That the >working conditions"
of-the mine workers is;away below
that of any other coal producing state.
3rd. The mfne workers receive, a
lower price per ton than the mine
workers of any other state.  _
4th. The' mine workers are denied
the rights guaranteed them by .the
Constitution, through the .guard system, established at the mining Scamps
of he coal companies, y • s
■5th.   The living- conditions, of., the
Tn IW^VoTlteTFTre- a~d isgfaceTto~Wes_
Virginia and does not compare in any
degree with,any coal producting state
in the United States. '7
• In the face of,, those facts and they
are facts, where does the boasted ^Industrial 'Progress come in? If there
iB any one who has any doubt as to
the truthfulness of the above' charges
we are willing: that he go into the
mining camps and Investigate for himself and then mako public what he ob:
served In his tour of Investigation.
There is one thing that goes a long
way towards reducing the 7cost" of
production and the coaf operators of
West1 Virginia- with Very few exceptions take advantage o'£ it, and that is"
the "system of having the miners
mine two tons, and-paying them'for
one. The miners not. having the opportunity to place-a checkweighman
on the tipple are thereby unable to
check the weight of their product,
(The State law of West Virginia provides that miners shall" place a checkweighman -on the tipple to' see that
their coal is propprly. weighed). Yet
tl/e 'coal companies through their
agents .discourage the' miners from
employing a checkweighman. That
would not be so bad if they, only
stopped at that. -But in all the unor-
.ganized fields' of West Virginia the
coal companies will not permit tho
miners j.o .place a man on the tipple
to act as checkweighman in their behalf. The coal operators realize that
with a man on the tipple looking after the interests of the miners the
opportunity to rob the miners would
be reduced to a minimum.
All ..the above charges are the principle reasons why West Virginia can
extend her market facilities for her
product, and if securing such far distant markets and Increasing the output of coal from year to year is the
medium by which1 Industrial progress
is measured then Gold help the industrial workers tl___t sacrifice so much
to make such progress possible. And
God pity the- state that secured her
high rank among the coal producing
states for the amount of her commodity when it is secured through such
nefarious practices and at the expense
of the life's blood of her best citizens. ■ '
Some people of the same calibre as
those that publish the Charleston Mail
advances the argument that were
the miner and mine laborer to receive
ilie just fruits of their toll._th.__ it
would handicap and prevent West
Virginia coal from extending out in
to-contain'jnarkets that ■ geographically belong to some other coal producing state." Looking at it from a
competitive i standpoint their .argument sounds plausible, but selfish,
and does not spell progress for/West
Virginia in the industrial field. .
. West> Virginia is entitled .to. such
markets as her, commodities can secure after she.has provided a living
wage for the producers of that com-
'modity, no more or no less. If she
extends out for markets and secures
_lrenf~a_"___e""e l.x sneoehrfe1 *~"1""
them at the expense of her wage
earners as in the present instance,
then fhe future of West,Virginia has
It seems to, me that If" progress
comes to West Virginia, it will _<__
when the same active interest that is
exemplified' In securing, markets for
their product is extended -in bettering the working conditions and increasing the pay of the men who produce this great commodity. Then,
and not until then, will industrial progress come to West Virginia,
Court   Decides   Carpenters   Can't  Be
Compelled to Handle Unfair
NEW YORK, Sept. as.-MJnion business agents, or delegates have a right
to ask workers to quit work on nonunion jobs as-long,as they-don't use*
any wrongful acts in getting the men
to quit, according to an opinion handed down by Justice Crane in tlie Supreme Court, Brooklyn, yesterday.
Justice Crane handed down the decision in the caso of John Rico, business agent of the Hrooklyn District
Council of the United Brotherhood of
Carpenters and Joiners, who was
charged by Louis Bossert & Sons with
having violated an injunction which
is, pending against .he union in getting men to quit work where the
Bossert firm was doing work.
The company had secured a temporary restraining order, enjoining the
Brotherhood of Carpenters from "conspiring, combining or acting in concert in any manner to injuro or interfere with the good will, trade or busl-
ess of the plaintiff's co-partnership for
the purpose of coercing plaintiffs to
eriiploy union labor."- The motion before Justice Crane claimed that the
carpenters had acted in, violation of
this injunction.
Justice Crane's decision is just the
reverse from that of Justice Black-
mar and Stapleton in the cases of
the Albro J. Newton firm, which is
also fighting the carpenters' union.
In handing down the decision, Justice Crane points out the distinction
between the two cases. - The two
firms, who operate non-union wood
(rim, door and. sash mills, have for
some time been fighting the carpenters' union, and as part of their'
fight on the workers, secured injunctions 'restraining the union from
calling strikes on,jobs "where its material Is being installed.
Rice recently went to a job where
Bossert's .trim > was about to" be installed- in the buildings and notified
the member's of the brotherhood that
they would be asked to handle nonunion material and they all quit as a
result. The firm, in return, started
suit against Rice, trying to have him
punished for contempt of' court* in
violating the injunction.
In his memorandum Justice Crane
says in part: - -
"If these carpenters to whom Rice
spoke voluntarily left work without
any compulsion from Rice or his organization there was nothing wrong-
fulin 'his acts.'     The cou_rts_canno_t

LONDON, Sept. 30.—The resolution
adopted at the Trades Union Congress
calling upon parliament to reform vtho
jury .system has again rt /ived a complaint that is shared equally by the
Labor and Liberal parties.. Itecently
a Liberal newspaper compared the libel damages assessed during tho past
year ngalnst various publications and
politicians, and tho comparisons show-
ed that nlmost Invariably Laborites
and Liberals wero mulcted for heavy
damages while Conservatives woro
either relieved from damages or compelled to pay Binall ponnltles.
It is claimed thnt this inoqunlily Is

General to Decide
WASHINGTON,1 Sept. 30—Whether
American or British mechanics will
make nearly, a million dollars' worth
of armor-piercing projectiles for the
United States navy next year, probably will depend' upon a decision by
the attorney general as to the applicability of tho eight-hour law to contracts for the shells. An English
firm bids lowest for the contracts but
tho American company which offered
tho.next lowest prlco now claims that
their bid was mndo with thov undor-•

HO"\Y often do we hear some person who thinks
that he is opposing Socialism say: ''1 don't
agree with the Socialists Unit all men are equal "
Tie does not have lo agree witli the Socialist for the
latter does not believe1 that all men are born equal,
or, if they are it does not last more than two mitm-'
tes afterwards. Some men are born tall, some thin,
some fat and all with divergent degrees of intelligence. Tliis' self-styled opponent (!) will some
times wax wrothy when told that he is barking up
the wrong tree and may retort that he lias heard
Socialists say so when, as a matter of fact he has
heard those who like himself are opposing or at
least think that he is opposing Socialism so often
repeat this phase that he really believes that it was
a Socialist that said so.
It. is not-at all surprising that among those who
are Socialists there are some who are not as well
informed as others on the subject, still there is
this to be said, that Socialism is making the greatest stride among the nations where illiteracy shows
tlie least percentage, hence, speaking broadly, ignorance and wilful perversion are the greatest foes
to an investigation of the science of sociology as
interpreted by the working class. Again when
the statement is made that it is equality of. opportunity" that the Socialist contends should be the
heritage of every human being, and that they will
only get it wheh-they make a study of the problems
that confront Society today, then your would-be
adversary of the Socialist argument will assert that
every individual has an equal opportunity today
and when it is pointed out that some babe has been
bom Jieir to a fabulous fortune (like the,infant
Vanderbilt) of fifty million dollars the rejoinder
is made "Oh! well his parents-or grandparents had
' to work for that."     Quite true they had to work
for it but it was because they worked schemes that
were framed by those who are staunch supporters
of the present regime and as to their thrift, integ-
- rity,    a   study   of   how these gigantic fortunes
, were made makes interesting reading, and no better ATOrk extant on this subject is than that of
Gustave flyers'.     This exhaustive treatment   of
> the subject has been most carefully gathered and
were there any opportunity for an action for criminal libel it is a foregone conclusion that it, would
have long been instituted.
We wish it distinctly understood thnt we do not
rail against those who have these tremendous sums
of money ns individuals, because they or somebody
else (Ihe only difference being the name) would
have amassed them as tboy aro the natural outcome of the existing capitalistic system which is
founded upon the wage systom through which tho
workers are exploited nnd capital (surplus value)
These people who hnvo control of so much money
nre personally lni.nnn beings like tho rest of tlio
people and mny givo large sums to chnritnble nnd
benevolent institutions, wheront the nowspiiporH
and pulpiteers mny Ning their prnisos in loud tonen,
but that doi'H not niter tho fuel. Hint they derive
tlieir money from tho exploitation of tho workers,
nor cnn tliey, as individualH, provont its eoiitinu-

Equality of]0])ppiliinltv^v|^lijf^,l'ie''Profit regime
is out'of the running; it isVi'i$fi) Correct thatoritee in
a while a'few individuals of the'working class members of society may succeed-in'getting into the real
capitalistic class, but in like manner once rrf a while
a daisy; will grow between 'flagstones, but it is not
tht rule.f&ftxi'.'wlia't's more the working class as a
class does not suffer any appreciable difference.
"Where is the man today who could get in and successfully combat the Standard Oil, thc Beef Trust,
the Rubber Trust, aiid the many other trusts that
are in existence.
The answer is simple: No man can compete with
those powerful institutions, and this is^recognizod
if not actually, at least tacitly, because of the strenuous opposition of the smaller business elemenl,
they would "bust the trust" if it were possible,
not for the benefit of the working class, but for
themselves. Fortunately this is beyond their powers and'even if not so would be as sensible as burn-,
ing the house door to warm the inmates, The trnst
is the natural outcome of conditions representing
the maximum amount of effectiveness with the
minimum of energy waste. .-' Because it does prevent the possibility of equality of opportunity is
no argument for its destruction, on the contrary,
that which is good should be retained, ,viz.,' its
saving of energy by systematization. What is at
fault is ownership, which instead of being private
should be collective, not by a small' percentage of
the people, but by the whole. It'is up to the
workers to get wise, and this cannot be done if
they leave their thinking to be done by proxy, even
though they who hold the proxy are-members of
the ■ working class themselves.
A T this time of the year the newspapers through-
■**''• out the country generaly go into ecstasies over
the harvesting of the crops, and dilate i upon the
blessedness of this Canada of ours. '' Economists,''
ori the one hand, also predict low cost of living to
the. consumers,' and on the other regale us' with
pictures of the affluence which they say has sud-
denly come to the farmer as a. result of the bounti-
ful crops. How two such statements can be reconciled is to the ordinary, individual difficult;-to
see. If, as the result of the size of the crop,-he
must reduce the prices of his commodity, how is he
going to get-rich on their sale? - Or, how is the
consumer 'going to get farm products at a low
cost if the farmer is going to get rich off the products he sells them 1! So far as we can see the only
ones who benefit by large crops are the big interests which control transportation and the general market. -The capitalist system stands in the
way between the city worker and the products of
tho soil which nature intends him to have.
The two boys, Edgar-Harper 'and
Percy Beal, who have obtained jiome
notoriety here, are' now in .the Spokane Coop.. ' 7 -    - , <■
Last .Thursday night, it is alleged,
t'he-Harper boy slipped-into"1 a small
bedroom at, tlie rear of' a' small store,
kept by. Michael Guzzie,.bn North "Victoria Avenue, and took a cigar box on
a washstand, twenty dollars in'money
a watch and a revolver. 7.This little
room adjoins the store, and the boy
must have slipped into it while the
storekeeper's back-was turned. Mrs.
Guzzio went to bed iu this little room
about ten o'clock, but-heard nothing
for some time, but finally hearing a
noise at tho window she called"' her
son, Paul Guzzle, from tho store, and
told him she heard a noise at the
window, and he examined it, but the
boy had let himself down on the outside and disappeared in the darkness.
He had evidently hid himself under
the bed, while Mrs. Guzzie was retiring, aiid had endeavored to get out
without arousing her.
The Beal boy was noticed hovering
about the front of the store.
Friday morning a small boy coming"
from the direction of the brewery to
school, met the two.Aoys going lri' the'
direction of Morrissoy. and they pointed a revolver at him. This frightened
the' boy, and when the two' runaways
saw this, they told him they were only
fooling, .and went on , towards' {.he
south. . "   ,
The two walked to Morrissey, and
theie boarded, the westbound express,
arid went to Cranbrook. -■" There they
bought tickets for Spokane, and
boarded the Flyer when it came along.
Meanwhile, Chief Hall got the wires
busy, notifying, Elko, Cranbrook and
Sirdar, and started out" in pursuit.
"U hen he learned that the boys were
on the.. Flyer, he wired Immigration
Officer Dunlap, at Kingsgate, to 'be
en the ^lookout.:'; Dunlap caught sight
of the fugitives, ..but they eluded him,"
and got over .the rline, before he could
stop them. ..Arrived ait Spokane, ,the
boys began "at-once the hold-up dodge,
but, unfortunately for them, the first
man they tackled happened to bs the
deputy prosecuting attorney, and he1
soon had the,police after them, and
they were landed^in a police station.
Chief Hall left on Thursday for Spo-
kane to bringlthem_back.T_ ^ '  "'\
The attitude of the average rnilwny promoter
and capitalist towards government ownership is
best, illustrated by an interview which Sir Dnn.
Mmm gave out; in Winnipeg recently. Sir Dan
said lie is in i'nvor of govornmont ownership of railways under Wrtnin conditions. For inslnneo, lie
believes thc government Hliould contro] tlie Hudson
Hay rnilwny. until it'is fully dolermincd whether
or not it will pny. If it DOES pny, tho government
could hand it, ovor to somo railway to operate. IC
it DOES NOT pny, the government should keep
cnntiV.1 of it. Even Iho Liberal press severely criticize the railway policy of tbe 0. N, ll. inngnnto.
Such blunt outspokenness is loo much for the loss

Not merely ltnown revolutionaries but

Yet the disorders at' the ports and
elsewhere falsify the official declaration that "order has ben restored in
the realm." And what. Is most significant is the fact that the agitation
today conies not from the lowest ranks
but from the skilled men—engineers,
.artisans and sappers. This bears out
the belief expressed in progressive
circles that all ■ the savage and bloody
repression of the past five years has
'been futile. The working classos
are stronger and more . determined
than ever before and a.revival of revolutionary activity's certain, animated by a new spirit of discontent tempered with hope. ■ c
Beats all Records
Before the revolution the-number of
strikers in the empire averaged 43,000
per annum. Last year'there were 103,-
000 strikers,.and this year has beaten
all records. " Since" May there has
been'a perfect wave of unrest affecting the entire country. St. Peters-
burgh alone has had 200,000 workers
on strike and the country has had
not less 'than, 700,000, mostly animat:
ed  by  political  grievances.
Still the movement grows, and is
bound to increase still further, in the
coming months. At every turn the
workers are being exasperated.
Though a law was passed six years
ago allowing trade unions under government registration, 497 trade unions
have been- suppressed'and G04 refused
registration;', and though the right to
strike has been' declared, no' strike is
unaccompanied by police interference

Strike Situation
Conditions; Remain Unsettled at Cumberland and Ladysmith, and No
Men are at Work in Either
'" CUMBERLAND, V. I., Sept. 30,—In
Cumberland and Ladysmith "the strike
situation remains the same; no men
.are at work In either camp. A deputation waited on Sir Richard McBride
on Friday, when the question was discussed, and he asked that the presentation be first in writing. The executive addressed the following letter
to the premier,

Sir Richard  McBrider
Honored Sir—We beg to submit
herein facts in connection with the
cases of discrimination that has finally-
culminated in a stoppage of work by
the miners employed by the Canadian
Collieries Co., at their mines at Cumberland and Extension, for your consideration:
Some two or three months ago.
Oecar Alotinshaw arid Isaac Portray
were elected as a gas committee to
examine, the mines of said committee
pany at Extension and report on the
condition of the tunvs as 'required by
During tlieir exauriiiation thej; found
aud reported gas lri five working places. The management of the mliwjs,
upon' tho posting oi this report,- iSallpd
on the Chief Inspector of'Mines, Mr."
Graham, to come 'lo Extension and
make, an examination of the places in
question. This ho did, aiid'the report of tho gas committee was verified. Soon after thft the place where
Oscar Mol|nshaw was working was
finished and ho wa# refused "another
lace. Ner men wcm employed while
he was idlo waiting for an opportunity
and asking-to work. Not wishing to
bo tlie cause of any :*oublo between
the management nwhrtae men, he left
there and went to CuMDerland, where
he secured.employment working for a
contractor in the mines of the same
company. • He had only worked there

superintendent, Mr. Henderson; to dis:,
charge hini. '. Mr: Cole demurred, saying that Motuishaw was' a good work-;
, . v
man, and he"had no reason .to ,di^
charge him, asking Mr.' Henderson
what reason ' ,would give Motiiishaw.
Henderson insisted be-must discharge
him, saying.he ecrald tell him .that he
could not pay him .3.50 per "day, the
amount he had agreed to' pay him,
.whilst the men were' being paid that
amount Cor the same work.,- Mr. Cole
complied with the request of Mr. Henderson, and discharged Motinshaw.
As Motinshaw was a member of the
U. M. W. of A„ the matter was taken
up by the union- at Cumberland, and
it was decided to send a committee
to' interview the management. The
committee went to the office of the
company but were refused a hearing,
Mr. Lockhart, superintendent,. saying
he would not deal with any committee,
but would deal with the individual who
had, any grievance. Then Mr. Motinshaw went to the office to enquire the
reason why he was discharged, and
was Informed by the superintendent
that Lhey did not have to give any
reason. They reserved the right' to
hire and discharge unquestioned.
Then a mass meeting of .all the em--
ployees of the company in Cumberland
was called, and another committee
was sent tb interview the management
but when they went to the office the
management refused them a hearing
also, Mr. Clinton, who came to the.
door to meetthem, saying: "We don't
want to hear you at all," and shut the
office door.
• The committee returned to the meeting and'reported. The meeting thereupon decided to" take a holiday until
the management would meet a committee, and provide some means for
ithe adjustment of difficulties and differences that may and do arise around
large industrial operations.
Now, sir, the information that we
desire from you js this: When men
are appointed or elected as'a gas committee at''any mines in" this province
and do their duty under the law, what
piotc-ction does the law afford them?
Does it prevent the emploj'er or his
agents . from discriminating against
them 01 discharging .hem in case they
n.ake a report not satisfactory to the
management?     ,       '    .

Breathing Cure for Throat aad Chest;
mryfi*r ■ 1 >
•y •*•■:$■■;
THE. introduction of those,new breathe-able
tablets, the silver-jacketed'Peps, has meant
a revolution in the' treatment of lung^throat
and chest ailments. Incidentally it has rendered
obsolete the many old-fashioned cough mixtures
containing laudanum and paregoric or opium in
one form or another.
Old-fashioned cough mixtures are not only dangerous^ because of
'tho opium iri them, but useless in design, because it is a physiological
impossibility for any liquid modjoine to enter the lungs. At tho Back
of tho mouth are two tubes, one the gullet,'along which all food is
conveyed to the stomach; and the othor consisting of the' throat and
windpipe, organs used solely to tako the breath of lifo to the lungs
and send the bad "air" out.   Between the stomach ;,/
and the lungs no passage whatever exists.   Hence to' V:
get to throat and lung troubles, it becomes necessary \
to alter the form bf the, medicine* itself. ' The acoom- -„ '.'-•
plishment o_ this,in .Peps combined with the freedom of.,S
Peps from opiuni gives to4his remedy its unique character
and its extraordinary success. ,    *
A Peps tablet, divested of its preserving silver wrapper,",
is placed on the tongue; and as it dissolves, certain rare
medicinal fumes are given off, which can then be breathed
quite easily down tho throat and windpipe into the lungs'and
chest.   These delicate air-passages which have been irritated *
by frequent coughing and clogged with phlegm are soothed,
cleared and strengthened; tho lungs are healed and invigorated, and all gorms likely to provoke, inflammation and
disease are destroyed.      '■   • ;.,

- CUMBERLAND, Sept. .SOl—At a
mass meeting held in the Cumberland
Hall, which was crowded to the doors,,
several prominent oiiicials of the
miners' • organization delivered addresses; a.vote was.taken and decided
that a ballot should take "place as to
whether the Canadian Collieries (Dunsmuir), Lih., were discriminating or not.
A motion was movod and it was decided a ballot be taken to decide the question. Said ballot will be taken at an
early date, .twenty-four hours .notice to
be given.   l
It was decided that the, Chinese
vote, as they were alsof employees of
the company; Cumberland and Extension to vote simultaneously..
The miners turned down the voting proposition and then held a mass
meeting, behind' closed doors. They
decided that' nothing more be done
until -^urthefr. instructions be received from headquarters. The-prospects
of a •" settlement, therefore, seem as

PARIS,. Sept. '30.—A remarkable invasion of ithe ancient homes of- the
French aristocracy' by Socialists is an'
nounced this week.' The Co-operative
Society'of Workmen, numbering'four
thousand, has just brought the historical Chateau De Biovil', dating from the
seventeenth century,' for $120,000'.
In the park, which' was originally
.laid out by Lenotre, 400 smpll' dwellings will he erected, without, it is asserted, in any way spoiling the surrounding scenery. Tho .principal sites
will be reserved as an open ground
for the community at large. • \
The", chateau Itself will bo used in
common as a club restaurant, etc.
Shops will bo installed ln the outbuildings to'supply the needs of the

C. N. P. Football League
The final tie "in the Aldridge Shield
was played in Fernie ° on ' Saturday,
September 28th. Hosmer ,and- Fernie
being the contestants. - Hosmer wore
strongly represented, having the as-
istance of Wtson/Evans/Challinor and
Beddington of Michel. Fernie; bn the
other hadn, being short of the' Brothers Adamson and Pete, Joinson.   An
unfortunate,accident happened in the
early part of the game, ualderstone,
who was playing goal for Hosmer, having the misfortune to fracture'his foot
in a collision with Bert Hartwell.
The. play was of an even nature,
bu,t goals seemed easy to get, the respective keepers .being largely to blame.
Fernie scored first through Hartwell,
Tommy Hutchinson, bouncing the ball
once too often, found it beyond his
reach,, and Bert Hartwell,had no'.difficulty -in scoring. Hosmer equalized in ten minutes, Orr, Fernie's • goal;
keeper,.missing;his'kick and Challirier
slipped _the. bail > into the net. .The
score .was even'at halftime, each side
having, registered once. ...__
Fifteen minutes from the restart
Fernie scored again,* Hutchinson missed his kick, "and Manning, running in,
had ho difficulty in scoring, - Hosmer
were playing a vastly improved game
from a week ago, and despite the fact
that they had only ten men they had "a
large share of the play. - Their forwards repeatedly made raids on,
Fernie's goal, but Fernie backs wero
playing a sound defence and allowed
no opportunities to score. Murray,
of. Fernie Junior's, who was playing
good football, scored a third goal for
Fernie. Hosmer goalkeeper was
again to blame, a faulty clearance placing the ball at Murray's feet; Ihe kid
made no'mistake,'and slipped the ball
Into tho net.    •   ■>,'
Tho game soomod to bo all over now,
bar tho shouting, but Hosmer kept
pegging away, ond good forward play
by tho entire front line enabled Partridge to scoro tho .best goal of tho
match, Timo was called shortly nftor-
wards, Fornlo loading by three goals to
Fornlo evidently did not miss tholr
absent players', while Hosmor wore

travail constant d'flu moins STVs
heures par semaine pour un salaire de
$15 per- mois. Cette declaration a
ete faite.egalement par des filles polonaises et slaves „qui ont affirme qu'
elles travaillaieut de. 80 a 90 heures

Des le' lendemain de ces jours' de

quelques sections. Un peu plus tard,
le jour de la paie qui suivit la visite
de 1'erapereur, un. millier d'ouvriers
employes a, la chaudronnerie firent la
triste decouverte qu'on leur avait re-
tranche trois mark, a chacun sur le
.salaire qui leur reveuait. Bien plus,
ils apprirent que dorenavant leur fer-
ait la meme deduction. Ceci fait ap-
nuellement au moins 78,000 marks au
profit, de la maison Krupp: c'est-a-dlre
beaucoup plus que les ouvriers n'ont
recu au cours des fetes du Centnaire.
D'autres ouvriers furent prlves«des

echange: mais comme ils ne parvenai-
ent a boucler les deux bouts deleur
budget qu'en faisant ainsi des heures
supplementaires, on voit que, pour eux
aussi, le Centenaire Krupp a ete une
sir/prise desagreable, car ils n'ont
recu aucune augmentation et ils ont
etc prives d'une.source de gain.

By Karl H. Von Wiegand.
BERLIN; Sept. 30.—Plans are being
made for the reopening of the "College of Socialism" the first of October,
by the German Social-Democratic par-
The German Socialists maintain a
"Higli School for Socialism" in Berlin
for the purpose of educating "workers" and "propagandists'* " for the
"cause," who in turn teach tho masses
the principles of„Social!sm. The German Socialist party is organised on
military lines. Its propagandists and
speakers are "captains" and "'lieutenants" of the "vorstand" or "executive
board," which in fact- is the "gen«.ral
staff." Mere agitation,, is' regarded
more or less dangerous tb the cause if
the converts are not- taught the value
of discipline and- obedience. ■
Accordingly,"in 1906 it was-decided
to establish a. "party school," and
much of the "red'wave" in tho elections last January, when 110 Social '"its
were swept into tho Reichstag, wns
due to the "workers" turned out bv
this school. Oijly "workers." that is.
persons who aro defined as "actually
working at some trade or profession"
are accepted as students. One-thlid
of them are to be women.
-Students in this Socialistic training
school are relieved from all material
cares and are fed at the expense of the
party. For this purpose' each, student
receives 150,marks a month or $37.50
while attending school, which suffices
for board and room and incidental expenses. The course covers six months.
The attendance is limited 'to 30 students. This js dono that there may liar much "individual teaching" as possible. ^All parts of Germany are equally represented.      - '
The school opened November 15th,
1006. August Bebel delivered the inaugural ^address. AVIth the exception
of one winter, there have been regular sessions. The" police threatened
to, close the school because two of the
teachers, Rudolf Hilferding,. an'Austrian, who taught Marx's philosophy,
and Herr Pannekock, a Hollander,
were foreigners. v- They resigned from
the faculty. " ''-_'.
Franz. Mehring, probably the greatest of modern Socialist writers in
Germany, has the-chair of the history
important studies in the curriculum is
the practical study of the law. Great
stress is laid upon this in order that
the coming Socialistic , leaders may
know what they9 can and can not do
within the law.
' Rosa Luxumburg, the leader of the
extreme radical wing of the German
Socialists,, has the chair of political
economy. She iB.a Russian and became Gorman by marriage in order not
to be expelled from the country lor
her activities. Although crippHd. she'
5j a v.oman of abi_ityl a fluent spo^er
aiH'has a remarkable sway over "tier-
foHov-ers. She !hs been e!i-_r.icici_z-
ed ai limes as the re-il ••'red leader" of
tlvj German Socialists.
I i.tor and capi'.al, labor letislalion,
political history,   co-operation,   newspaper technique, the value o° organization, and several other subjects aie
taught. ' ,.
Numerous applications   frtfm   other
countries have been received, and! it is ■
said the school may be enlarged tins

An eminent scientist, the _._._* uay,
gave his opinion that tin jno_. "wonderful discovery of recent y*art. > was
MIR; discovery of Zam-i_.m._ Jut*
think! As soon ns a single thin layer
ot Zam-Buk Is applied to a wound or
a sore, such injury is insured against •
blood poison! Not one species of
microbe has been found that Zam-Buk
does not kill!
"Then again. As soon as Zam-Buk
is applied to a sore, or a cut, or lo
skin disease, it stops the smarting.
That is why children aro such friends
of Zam-Buk, They care nothing for
the science of the thing. All they
know is that Zam-Buk stops their
pain. Mothers should never forget '
this. '    )
Again. As soon as Zam-Buk- is applied to a wound or to a diseased
part, the cells ibencath the skin's surface are so stimulated tbat new
healthy tissue is quickly formed, Thia
forming of fresh liealthy tissue from
below is Zam-Buk's secret of healing. ,
The tissue thus formed is worked up
to the surface and literally casts off
the diseased tissue above it. This is '
why Zam-Buk cures are permanent.
Only the other day Mr. Marsh, of 7
101 Deloriinier Ave., Montreal, called
upon tho Zam-Buk Company and told,
ttem*iJiat'ifor""6yef~twent"y^flve years
he had been a martyr to eczema.   His
hands were''at one time so covered
with sores that, he had to' sleep In
