BURMIS, Aug. 19.—Fire destroyed
the house and outbuildings belonging
to, Mr. P. McGulre on, his ranch two
miles north of Passburg this evening.
His daughter, Kate, a'girl of fourteen
years, was hi the house, ot the time
the fire occurred, arid' was burned to
death,' ; ■ ," -' '."',,,,.'
- The origin of the fire is unknown,
as from the meagre .details to hand
it appears that no one ( was in , the
house at the time .the fire occurred,
th father being in Bellevue' on>business and the "mother, was visiting'at
$ neighbor's house, l    ■:'.
Several parties In Passburg.on seeing the flames, hastened to -render
aid, but by the time they, reached
there, the fire had ' got such' a hold
that it was practically impossible _ to
do^ anything _,to -save the" buildings.
The charred .body of the girt was,afterwards? found in the ruins.      •
P. McGiiire and. family were residents of Burmis and moved on to
their ranch some twormonths ago and
much sympathy is ,felt in town for the
parents in" their sad bereavement. '

American  Producers Are Overwhelmed With Orders    '    ' .
WINNIPEG, Aug. 21.—Reports from
Uio Pennsylvania anthracite fields
show that the producers, in spite of
every effort to avert,a shortage,.are
likely to be overwhelmed by the mass
of belated orders accumulated during
the strike period of the early spring.
Stocks of big "coal- jobbers throughout
the country, which at the present time
should, be filled up for winter demands, are in, many cases absolutely
depended upon to supply current demands.
'.Prices are accordingly rising, and in
Winnipeg, Pennsylvania hard coal has
gone up from $10.50 to $11 a .ton.
Manitoba and eastern- Saskatchewan
is depending on this supply, though
further west it comes Into competition
with hard'coal form the Crows Nest
which, however,. at present ls of an
inferior quality. The shortage can be
judged by the following figcres of
shipments from Pennsylvania:
' "April, mi,s 5,804,915 tons; April,
1912, 266,625'tons; May, 1911, 6,317,-
352 tons; May, 1912, 1,429,357. tons;
first seven months of 1911, 40,113,648
tons; same "period 1912, 32,382,132
tons.     .     " - .--■''
Much of the? Canadian prarie west
is absolutely dependent for its fuel
supply on American1 sources and these
figures present an alarming prospect.

their customers to stack up at present
prices. ' ■.": 7

Quealey, W. D. Brennan and H.' C.
Campbell. President Thomas Gibson,
of District No. 22,' and. James Morgan
secretary-treasurer of the district,
signed tlie agreement on behalf of the
The new scale eliminates the mere
loading of coal and places the duty
of carjng for the room, which is now
attended to by company men, upon
the loader and grants him an Increase
on his tonnage rates. It also establishes a uniform,rock scale, the need and
justice of which has long been felt by
the miners ,as well as a slight increase

powerful you could become, if \ you
were to unite and become organized?
_ Because bf your unorganized condition you have,become the, victims-of
low wages, long hours of, labor, working - under' most onerous conditions,
and this, despite the fact that the cost
of living has constantly increased so
that the wages paid you can not nearly
—much less adequately—meet It. You
are powerless to-protect yourself against accidents which are - frequent;
against sickness which comes, to you
often,, against Idleness. because, of industrial depression, .against .the? ills
with which the workers in all industries havo at times to.contend, parti-
cularly. when .unorganized.,- Most of
these ills can be minimized, or'elimin-
ated, when yoii unite'.   '
All of the ills incident to your industry, caii'not be abolished at once,
but-lhey,can he changed and'reduced
by thorough, organization of all'the
workers "in the great iron, and, steel

It means ."sabotage."    And sabotage

\'Direct'action appeals 7 to anarchists,

tactics. ,        '   .   '   '       y.:  .'
These are.likewise, the I,-W. W.' tactics, as applied to .the' Socialist: party.

page frankly declares that the7. Socialist party must be destroyed; -    It"

"The I. W. W. and the'! Socialist-
party have- nothing in common—the
latter is, a'political party whose structure Is not revolutionary. It.has the
workers hypnotized and has sold out
or prostituted itself, not for the,working class emancipation, but only for

' From' this it can be clearly seen
that the I. W. W, is simply an anarchist organization, working to disrupt

"Strike at the Ballot/Box" Says He-
-      Humorous Incident During
.. "V   Recent Strike
'.In a, case brought before the.City
Court of London, the plaintiff sued a
printing firm for,,'two weeks' wages
because' he was-; discharged without
due notice." During the recent coal
miners' strike .the firm ran put of fuel
for> its engine and ^ demanded that the
plaintiff'propel a platen press by foot-
power, which he declined to do, and
for which he was immediately ■ discharged.- __ The t court decided-for the
was foollBh to run"a.machinery foot-
power which was arranged for steam-
power, and that therefore the'.-plaintiff
had the'right to refuse to do so.
A case of great public interest was
heard in the Glasgow and South Western Police _Court last,, week, when
George Strang, laborer, appeared be-
fore B'alie Riddle to answer a charge
of having, on the 17th inst., used
threatening language1 toward Alexan-
der Slack, laborer.'
Evidence having been led, it was
found that the case arose out' of a
strike.;"' The accused was ono of thc
strikers, and his accuser was a "blackleg." Witnesses for the, prosecution
.spoke to having seen the accused approach Slack, and after quietly talking for a minute thoy became noisy.
The accused was told to go and mind
his 'own business, and he retorted by
calling, Slack a traitor to his fellows,
a "scab" "blackleg," otc, and ended
by threatening to "knock the head off
him."      ',   '.

denies him the right tae work. If he
had been-granted the richt tae word
by society,,;he widna hae been idle

in court—during which - Bailie did a
hard think.)
Accused (continuing)—There's', a
big difference atween the richt tae

that, but it's wrong' to threaten to
knock the head off the man, as you

Accused—Well, your-honor, I believe It is, because even if I did it I,
don't believe he'd ever miss it. (Laughter.) ■  ,    .       ' ,
Bailie—It's hard to know what to do
in this case.     You seem to be acting_
in'the interests of-your wife and chilr
dren, ,and in' defense of your .hearth
and home, and that is rather a manly
thing to do".'   But the law' Is the law.
However, you may go how, and come
up-for sentence within,, six months if
Called upon.     But take this advice to
heart. _ Keep w'ithiri°lhe law.'   If the
law doesn't ,suit you, then-strive to
have it,altered   Strikes can be rendered unnecessary by workers making the
proper use, of - their .votes on ■ polling
day.     It is more importantthat workers should stand united at an election
time, than that "they should be united
in a strike for,, more - wages. -   You,
yourself, may be doing-your duty, but
it also rests" with you to get" your fellows to .do theirs.     And remember
this^ no matter how much of an in-
you return men   to^parliament   and
council to legislate in your interests,
then your strike has been in vain.
Strikes are necessary—at- times—but
If a nation is to come to its best
it must look after the interests of her
workers. '  The great army'of laborers are the nations' wealth producers
and their best interests lie' at'the
basis of a nation's prosperity,     Deny
the laboring class theiv, rights, -make
the lot of the  toiler hard  and  you
strike a' blow- at the .very foundation  ■
of tho nation's wealth'producing powy
or.    Tlie secret of Germany's wonderful success as a commercial s"nation,
during Ihe last .25 years, lies in her
organization.  ' Every branch of industry, you might say, is there organized   ,
on natural lines and", in these organizations,   the 'prevailing" factor  is  to
make her laborers efficient. '   Tlieir„
interests are studied.    Their well.be-'
ing is sought, for tho Germans are too'
wise and far-seeing to lose sight of the
best Interests of the working classes.
In this new^'Wostern country are we
making things easy. for.  the   tolling
masses?   ' A study of" the economic ,
conditions prevailing in^ tho western
Provinces will soon lead one to see
that the laboring man's lot is not a
bed of roses, o Rents are excessively
high, foodstuffs are beyond"the reach
of many a man's "wages, tho cost of living keeps the purse empty.   ■ An investigation of these things soon  reveals that tliere are-forces at work
that make the path of the  working
man with   a   family no easy, course".
True, wages are-high but,'if the West
is to come to its best, every force or
custom that Is at work that tends to
make the lot of the laborer a hard one
must be eliminated. Rents must come
down, food stuffs must reach a lower
plane and the cost of living must be
reduced.   . Every economic disadvan- -
tag'e-to the laborer must be eliminated, and every   unearned    increment
"should be taxed until it is bled white.
In our laying of.the foundation _of this
great Canadian nation, .let us not lose
sight of the interests of our wealth
producers—the' tolling masses.—Wey-

-, '   ACT
1   'A ^ ^ast a luovc *s being made to have the B.C.
**   Election  Act  amended  which .would'- give
•i workers as well as those who consider it infra dig.
to be so classified, a better chance of fulfilling their
duties bf citizenship. This much needed step is
being taken in hand by District 6, Western Federation of Miners, who are to be commended for their
activity in this direction. So far the intention is
to get up a monster petition which will contain
nothing to which any man in the province, whether
he be-a-''friend of labor" or otherwise, can obect to.
,   The amendments asked for are:
1. That at least two calendar months shall intervene between ^the .dissolution of parliament and
,the date of election.       ,
2. That a special court of revision"shall be held
_>   ,  on the first day of the second calendar month• foi-.
~ lowing dissolution. ' The sole function of this court
being to place'on the voters' list—subject to the
limitations provided in the present Act—the names
of all persons resident in the riding who are entitled to the franchise.   ■,
, 0 3. That a list of the names added to the voters'
list by every court of revision shall be prepared by
the registrar and be accessible to the public not
later than ten days after the closing of every*court
pf revision.       ■  -      .     '    '     '    • ;
4.0 That the registrar of voters shall" forthwith
acknowledge' the receipt,of every application to be
placed on the voters'list.. „  .
5. _ If, through" inadvertence, the. name of a qua-
,   -   lified elector has been omitted from_the_Yoter__-?_iist^
the registrar shall issue to such elector a certificate
> which certificate shall entitle such elector to vote
at any polling subdivision in his riding." Such vote,
.   to be recorded on what is known as a tendered ballot paper, and his certificate to be surrendered to
the deputy returning officer at the polling station
where the vote is cast. ^
,     Whilst no provision is made to prevent BALLOT
BOXES from being conveniently LOST in transit,
the BILL as it will stand, if amehdod, willbe work-
/    able.    Bitter experience dias taught us what we
may expect from our "friend'of labor" legislators,
0 especially wlien thoy can see their  way  clear  to
,   jump an election on us, and thus prevent tho possibility of getting our forces together.    Of, courso it
•   would hardly be in their interest to give us time for
'   fair investigation and discussion of tho problems at
; issue.    No. 2 is, porhaps, the most important of all.
As thelaw'now stands six months' resident in tho
province is necessary beforo a citizen can mako application for registration, and such application must
be mado sixty days boforo tho sitting of tho courts
of rovision, which aro hold enrly in May and Nov-
. omber of' each year.    Thus a citizen from evon a
neighboring province can bo as much as thirteen
months in B. C. before ho can got his namo,on iho
voters' list.    Tho main sufferers aro, of courso, tho
working class.    Having to constantly chaso aftor
a job it is not often, that he is thirteen months in
this province.    The injustice of this pieco of class
k'giHlation cannot bo refuted.   Another soction of
thoact which would bo bottor amended   is   that
which pcrrnilH a registered voter to cast hi« ballot
at tlio nearest, polling booth ib Ihe riding convenient
dm,    Tlii vote nhould only ho accepted in that

■      _    POKER.QAME^ RIGHT
The,dispute between Mr/Lloyd-George and the
doctors over the fees allowed to thelatt.erin the
Insurance Act has led to one interesting suggestion,
which a few years ago would have been considered
"Socialistic."/' It is "that the profession of medicine should be nationalized.,' This suggestion .i 1 -s
not eome.from thb Chancellor, but from one j£ ie
doctors. In-a paper read by DiV'Rentoulto ' be
Britisjr.Medical Association a - plan was outlined
which embodied the idea and the trend of tlujdis-
cus!ion"w,hich followed was'in favor of. nationalization. Of course the scheme will be met with,Yi:e
usual denunciations-in certain quarters on the score
that it is "Socialism," and the expense it would entail. Yet'these same people-do not« rajseytheir

Our esteemed contemporary the "Coleman Bulletin" has taken an opportunity of having a slap at
Socialism by clipping a sarcastic article on Socialism
from the Saturday Evening Post. It is based pure-
ly.on tho "divide-up";fallacy, and concludes,by
saying:   ,, ' y -. .  "   /
"Ultimately the problem1,of higher, wages does
not depend upon collective bargaining, nor evon
upon eliminating capitalist and landlord. By all
those irfethods a few dollars may be added to the
weekly pay envelope. If. the total share of landlords and capitalists' now wont to Vage-earnors tlie
average pay envelope would be only sixtoen dollars
a week. Tho ultimate problem is to eliminate
waste, increase efficiency and make industry create
more wealth to bo divided."
1 The absurdity of such nn argument is too apparent to need any refutation. Tho only surpriso is
tliat it should find its way into a paper, such as the
Bulletin, which depends upon its lifo to roadors
who are woll versed and thoroughly acquainted
with tho principles of Socialism. Adopting such
illogical and fallacious arguments against a movement which is" revolutionizing tho twentieth con-
tnry, tho Bulletin is only making a laughing stock
of itself, and its efforts on behalf of tho citizens to
whom it enters will hardly bo appreciated,

Found in the
Crows Nest Pass
Wm. Fernie, the Pioneer
By B. Jacobs
Having occasion last month to look
up some Information concerning the
beginnings of some of the more important mines of the province I happened ,011, a paper, in the Journal of
the' Canadian Mining Institute for
3901, and from it made tho following
excerpt, which I afterwards referred
to Mr. William Fernie 'for his confirmation of some of the statements
therein affecting himself. As it will
most likely interest many readers of
the Province, to have placed before them this little bit - of mining
history, I submit it herewith."
• Dr. George M. Dawson, director
of the Geological Survey of panada,
was the first authority "to recognize
the value and possibilities of these
coal areas. He,passed through the
country in 1881, and although there
■was only time'for a cursory examina-'
tion, his keen, perception and intuitive scientific'genuis enabled him to
prepare a monograph, the accuracy of
which has been, fully established by
the subsequent detailed surveys.
"But while Dr. Dawson may be
called the scientific pioneer, of, the
,,Crows Nest Pass, and the first to
realize.its enormous importance and
value) it is right to here , lender a
meed of■ praise to the men who first
discovered the existence'of coal and,
especially, to the one "- man whose
name is most intimately associated
with this district. It was in the late
seventies that Mr. William Fernie, in
company with his brother, while prospecting near Martyn Creek for gold
first noticed coal float in the,bed of
the streams, and was led by this ,to
make a more careful examination of
the steep mountain-sides, and finally
to discover'at-an elevation of about
6000 feet the outcrop of a 30-foot
seam of coal. Although "this was Mr.
Fernie's'first experience- in dealing
with, anythingv,but the precious minerals, he was shrewd enough to conclude that it might be"'a find of considerable importance,' and from that
date until 1896, when the Crows' Nest
Pass Coal Company was'formed, with,
Mr. Fernie as one-of its directors, in
season and out of <■ season,'," through
good and evil report, in tho face of
opposition—which at times threatened to swamp the undertaking—he
never ceased to labor and, scheme" for
thc building of a railway and the'development of tlio mines; devoting all
his .time and pledging Ills last dollar;
and it is only a fair tributo to his
British pluck and energy to; say, that
but, for the tenacity and ability with
whioh he clung to his pet scheme,
there would probably not have been
either a Crows Nest Railway or coal
mine today. Mr: Fernie has had a remarkable career, of which this, possibly the most Important coal project
in the world; Is a fitting climax. The
Son of an- English county doctor, educated , and trained to follow his ■ father's profession, at 20 he ran away to
sea, sailed a nearly round 'the world,
reached San Francisco in the earty
fifties,' became a gold-miner there,
and, subsequently in British Columbia ; being one of the earliest pioneers
of the Fraser River placer mining,
and afterwards going with the' rush
into the Cariboo and Cassiar .country.
Attracting public attention he became
gold commissioner and. government
agent, anchfor some years ruled the
Indians and-miners with a rod of iron
in the Fort Steele division of . East
Kootenay, winding up his career in
connection with the Crows Nest coal
areas. 'Today at 65 years of age he
has retired to enjoy a. well-earned
rest, and it is some satisfaction , to
know that the reward of his industry
lias-furnished him with'ample me_n3
to do, so."
Mr. Fernie's reply. to my ^enquiry
contains the following information:
','Dr. Dawson's first visit to the Crows
Nest Pass was in either 1880 or 1881.
I was at the time government agent
and gold commissioner at Wild'Horse
Creek, East Kootenay, and Dr. -Dawson came to,the government office
there and spent a, day.'with me. I had
in 'the office some coal from the Crows
Nest Pass, and when, the doctor saw it
he enquired * where. 1 'got iC from^and
said that be had'riot found any. .coal
like that in.the,.Pass.' ^It'.waYinlSST
that I first went'in there to prospect
for the seams, knowing'the coal .".was
there, and* I was not looking for1 gold
or other precious mineral." .The Crows
Nest Coal Company was formed in-
Victoria prior- to-my starting" for the-
Pass'to prospect, for coal, and" I was
not accompanied by my brother, but
had with"me two hired men.'' '
, "It wason,a later trip through the
Pass ?that 'Dr.. Dawson recognized
there was so much coal there? • His
first trip was too hurried, and he did
not,take time for a thorough examination., ' - l y ' °
' "In regard to my personal career,
the .errors in the excerpt you have
sent' me are many. <■■ I did not run
away to go to sea;- but was apprenticed by my father" to a Capta.n Godfrey, in the employ of Marshall and
Elderidge, of Fenchurch ■ Street, I_on-
don, I went out in a ship called the
Statesman to Melbourne,'Australia,
and then'hearing of the gold diggings
and not being In love with a,sea-faring life, I ran away, and subsequently
went to the mines on the Turon River,
near Bathurst, In New .South Wales,
aud not to Bendtgo, which was in the
Colony of Victoria. * •
"1 never was at Cariboo, but spSnt
my time in the Kootenay and ad-
jacent territory close to the boundary
"I never saw, nor until now, heard
of the paper you quote • from, and
which you tell me was read before
the Canadian Mining Institute in
1901." '      - ,

Labor Conditions in France
'Interview with President of,Labor
Au Interview with Rivelli,' of ' the
French General Confederation of Labor, who is the leader of the present
national strikeof French seamen, produces some interesting information,
"There can be.no mistake in t{jis being a genertl strike," he said.. "Tlw
five ports' closed up—Marseilles. Bordeaux, Dunkerque, St. Nazaire and.
Havre—are. the key, ports to France.
And I feel especially that it is also.a
real revolutionary • effort directed, toward' strengthening the economic
power of "the workers against ;.heir
exploiters—a matter beside-which a
few francs more salary serves only to
'ring'up "the curtain. . ., -v
-"By.Itself,"however, the question of
the salaries of French seamen is a
shameful injustice; For 12 years
while food, clothing and all other staples have been mounting sky high, the
wages of French mariners, have beer,
absolutely stationary. °,Greasers, trimmers," and other unskilled laborers get
while novices and apprentices get'as
low as $1.50 and"$2. So with'wheat
having,?increased in price by 50 per
cent, since our last rise, clothin.. by
an even greater proportion,, and other
staples similarly, it is not a bit of an
exaggeration to say that'the majority
of French merchant sailors barely pet
enough, to keep their families from
starvation. , •
"It was at tho "Vernier Coogvess
that we finally decided to bring this
matter to a.head, "tyo drafted ,i,li.:t
of demands and submitted them «o the
\r_Bters' Shipping Fe.leiation — .hoy

when the sailors on tho beautiful leviathan 'La Franco of tho Compngnlo

WASHINGTON.—The congressional
committee which investigated the
•United States Steel'coVporatipn untie*
a resolution adopted May,' 4, 1911,
which has been strongly urged beforo
congress for several sessions by the
American Federation of Labor and
other reform associations, has completed its report and it will be presented to congress when the minority mem-
tors of the commltte have tlieir reports
completed. ,» . >'
It is urged.that members of congress be requested to supply applicants
with copies of'this remarkable document for use tn trade union and central
union libraries. Prom.lt, these truths
are'gleaned:. .   '    ■ ■    ',
"A most important economic fact-
brought out In this investigation which
has too often been overlooked is the
production per, man per day, and not
the mere amount of wages paid. This
important fact' should never be lost
slkht of In the all important question
of cost production." '    .- 0 '
This statement is verified by a table
Which, shows that the trust has' secured more pig iron at.a"lower wage cos.
and sold it to the consumers at a higher price in 1909-than they did in 1902,
and that they' actually employed a.
lesser number of men in a fewer number of days in 1909" than" they did in
1902 in the'state of Pennsylvania.
__ In 1909. the'trust employed in the
production of'Dig iron in Pennsylvania
14,921' men; iri :_02, 17,170 men; in
lf"'>D they, worked SOO days, in 3902 314
days. ' In _if-09 it cost the trust ?2
cents, for -labor, to produce one ton' of
pig iron, in 1902 tbey paid $1.25' rer
ton: In 3909 each man produced 2-1-10
•ons of pig '.ron per day, in 1902 a man
produced 1% tons per day, in 1909 the
trust sold its pig iron at $17.44 per ton,'
and in 1902 they only" got $15.64 per
ton. -• The' average;daily wage increased 20 cents per, day, or from $1.89 in
1902 to $2.09 in" 1909.'
The cornriiittee states that on June
17, 39Q1. six weeks after the Steel corporation was organized and began op-

of the -firm of J. P. Morgan and Co.,
brought forward the following proposition at.a meetirig'.of the executive committee of the steel,corporation, and'the
president was-,instructed to convey it
to all the presidents' bf the subsidiary
companies.' This resolution was 'extensively discussed and It clearly and
emphatically' displays the attitude of
this greedy corporation towards labor, especially organized labor. ' Mr.
Steele's prbposltion'reads:
"That we are unalterably opposed
to any extension of union labor and
alvlse BUbaldtnry companies lo take a
firm position when these questions
como up, and say Unit they are nat
going to recognize it—that is, any extension of unlonB in mills whoro thoy
do not now exist; 'that great care
Bhould bp used to prevent trouble, and
that they promptly report nnd confer
with this corporation."
All of tho evidence collected -by the
commltteo clearly shows how Amorlcnn laborers felt nftor thoy snw the
attitude of tho trust following this do-
clarntlon. Thoy considered thoy were
not wnntod In tho works of Iho United
{.tntcB Stool Corporation, nnd tho process of filling tholr places by hordes of
laborers from Southern Europo begnn
