further- declared that - should ;the government, consider'''the * application' fa-

by Commlssloner.Candy for the reduction of the cost in the operation, of
the power plant.-".' At the present
time no less than seven cars of coal
are,consumed dally at the plant, Involving large cost for, transportation ln
addition to placing the city very much
at the morcy of the,rail way companies
for prompt delivery -of coal neelel.
The, proposal of Commissioner Candy
Is that,-if possible', a permanent contract be made with one of the local
mines and, that the costof transportation be reduced by tbe^ construction of
a spur of the': street', .railway to= the
mine. Falling this arrangement, the
commissioner ia believed to be prepar-
ed; to, recommend the purchase of a
mine byjthej.cityr,'.,1'' v.
.The cost, of fuel has fo rsome'tlme
past-:represented "one of the largest
expenses of the/plant. During;the
past few. -months' Hthis has, been appreciably reduced'by the Installation
ot coal conveyors."'which lay for two
years Unused and .exposed to the weather. The installation of these, conveyors'has already.' reduced' the cost
of transportating the fuel: " If a mine
is purchased and operated by the city,"
the spur 'bf'the'street railway would
be so" constructed that the coal could
be dumped"ihtbvthe bunkers' and a

As the time for elections draws nearer municipal politics aro being taken
more seriously, and the probabilities
and chances of the various candidates'
more fully discussed. Up to the hour
of going to press we understand that
the old council will all 'stand for reelection, although Aid. Mclntyre has
not made a definite decision. From
Interviews .with a number of the can-~
didates there are very few of them
who are running under the auspices
of- the moral reformers.' Whilst the
majority of these favor certain moral
reforms, not only on Sunday, but
every'day in-tbe week, there are very
few who are prepared to go tho whole
bog. One and all are anxious to see
a clean city, but only two or three
are ln favor of a closed Sunday.

"; A. W .Bleasaell.in-an Interview stated that he Ib not allied to any party,
and runs on his own merits. He recognizes that much work is in store for
the Incoming council, and many improvements are" needed,-'-but not. on.
the lines as mapped out by-the moral
reformers. He ls in favor of a stricter survlllance of tbe Jlquof traffic, but
is.adverse to-putting tlie lid down on
other-public resorts on Sunday. The
public he "-considers are entitled to
some consideration, and to take away
preach' and practise, temperance. °

Thos. Beck, on the other'hand, when   ■
Interviewed, spoke but candidly, for a
closed Sunday, and tight at that.   On'
this  point  he   was  particularly emphatic, and considered that.as good
as any place on Sunday was -in tho
church.     Asked as to how one is to   ,
spend his time after the church hours ,
reply was that that question, can best

. /WASHINGTON.—"When    business
' concerns have reached   a   magnitude
\-whereby they can control"the output
or the prices in an industry, it is tbe
' imperative duty o„f the government to
condemn and acquire their'properties,
and 'to" own and operate them for the
common good."
' This is the view of Victor L. Berger,
the Socialist Representative of Wisconsin, according to a bill he Intro-
- ducec at the oponing'of Congress recently. ' ,
.   ' It  has  been  thoroughly, proved,"
says Eerger ln the Introduction to his
, bill, "lhat- the' various legislative attempts that have been made to- check
•"* the concentration of capital have" been
"• based upon lack of knowledge and a
- misunderstanding of. economic - development. The trusts,are an inevitable

"Tlie,Sherman Antitrust' Law for
the last twenty yearSjhave not only eh-'
tirely failed to bring about the'anticipated results, but, on the contrary, has"
created constant litigation,   and   has
brought frequent disturbances to commerce and industry.  " The' trusts' intended to be controlled by this act
" have steadily augumented their power,
, have enormously, increased, the price
;of commodities and have forced down
the general standard,of living of millions of wage earners in the nation.
"Through their "ability' to fix prices
and to determine-the'quality of commodities   and' the  volume    of    production, these trusts have attained an
' almost - sovereign   power'   over    the
- health and lives of the people. These
trusts have •' also virtually abolished
the possibility of private ownership in

when scratched bocamo painful.   Dad
loree followed, which discharged, and
tbe discharge epread tbe disease until
hie hands were one raw, painful most
of eorea,   This state of affairs continued for twenty-five years I
" In that time four eminent medical
men tried to cure him, and each gave

Mr, iMarth tried remedlea of ell kinds,

NEXT Thursday the citizens of Fernie will be called upon to. cast thoir vote for mayor and six
- aldermen. The issiies'at stake are hot many, and
those, with one exception, of minor importance: To
the majority of-the electors -municipal matters are
of less'consideration, a big percentage not even
castingtheir ballots on the appointed .day. *. This
is very much to be.regretted,' although it can easily
be explained., "The,,-average man's view of the
matter is that it makes no difference who gets in.
Every candidate is.bound to claim that hewishes.t'o
see- a; clean and beautiful city,, has views, on vast
•"" improvements, and so forth "'ad infinitum. - -'As a
"matter of fact, however,.whoever are.elected the
^same order, of affairs wilt prevail'in so far as'taxation of property and person is concerned, and this
/ is,-of "course,.against Socialistic principles.. .,/The*
workers have it in. their own hands to remedy this
evil, and that is by taking advantage .of 'their-fran-
' chise.' There'is no reason why every inhabitant
of this, and other cities, should not qualify for this.
The two dollar a year road tax^is tp be paid whether
we .like it or not." "We'might'as well, therefore;
make use of our privileges.fasthe workers^ are', in

run their own .ticket, and bring it in by a.thump-

; Dear, Sir,—I have, been asked by
the Provincial Game Warden, Mr. A.
Bryan,Williams;.jto..get, the opinion of
thV.'spbrtBme'n'. of, .Fernie district as
to what constitutes the spawnlng'sea-
son of th(e blapkjspotted>out (Salmo1
Ol'a'rkil), ,the apecies-cqmmon to Elk
River and^lts' tributaries. This |s being done, I understand, with a view tb
the "bettor protection.of our fiBh. The
question of a close season is, of tho
utmost Importance..', Thoro is little
use in having,a closed season, however,' unless it begins and ends at
the' proper tlmo, henco the desire of
tho' government; to gain tho opinion
and advice ot the fishing public, Any
information on this point w!ll(bo gladly received nnd* carefully considered.
Letters onsi.he subject can be-nddross-
ed to A. Bryan-Williams, Provincial
Qnmo Warden, .Vancouver, B. C.
As a personal suggestion I would
like correspondents to express their
views on the advisability of declaring
ncloso soaaon-'on.tljQ western wblto
fish (Grayling). Admitted this flih
doos not posses'* the gamo qualities
of tho trout, nevertheless as a food
fish It la worthy of protection, Many
a fisherman has boon glad to fill his
baskot with grayling,-when tho more
aristocrats trout refuses nil lures.
Then comos tho quontlon of the Dolly
Vnrdon trout (ehnr), Opinion sooma

follow should hnvo protection or not.

is very smartly dressed and would be

short sleeves and low necks. She uses
more sense in dress matters than we
Our little Lancashire lasses, some
thirteen.and fourteen years, have a

The Idea that, something, "may be
obtained for nothing.' is-" apparently
not confined to high finance, or,to the"
mechanics of ."perpetual motion."* * It"'
crops out occasionally In the attempt
to increase the heating capacity of
a fuel by treating it with some chemical that is not itself a combustible..'It*
was confidently asserted, not long ago,
that .ordinary % furnace-ash, having no*
fuel,'valuerat'all could be; made to-
bum 'when'so. treated. >< - Apparently
even "the7responsible officials bf cerr'
tain railroads,have been duped in this
way. - -     7 - -, ,   •   "
A - report- emanating from Boston
says that' Philip O. Leavitt, an engineer on the Boston: and Albany Railroad,
has .perfected a process by\ which he
can reduce by one-third-the amount of
coal' burned ;by "locomotives. The inventor or j-discoverer of this -. process
say's:7. "My plan consists in part of
spraying the lcoal with my secret solution. 'And-I also save a great" deal of
coal in building-fires. 'I have devised vmetho"ds to offset almost wholly
the; waste by the fire caretakers in
the rbtu>d'house before the, locomotive
is sent outlon-Its'run."      '7
"In 1892"great claims were made in
New. England for the use of a mixture
called "Kbm-Kbm," which was,reported to convert inferior coal into-a fine
mvmaxjng soap.

Dog Races and Curling Contests Fea
tures of Day's Fun—President's
Rinks-Winners   •
The new year was ushered In -with
more than usual zest by the people of
Fernie. - One, of the chief sources of
Jollty was'the dog races, an exercise
made popular with the boya by,Tom
Whelan, who for several winters haa
been the leading Bplrit in keeping this
sport alive.- There were scores of
dogs and sleds in the races brought
out by the long list of prizes offered
foy,the merchants and others to stimulate the fun. "There were 10 prizes
and from' three to five heats had to
be run In each event so that it was
"dark before tho last ,h«at was finished.'
There were from two to half a' dozen
dog fights In; each race^biit- the drivers came, out r of %1each;'m*"x:up^ and
ready to run again.     .'*„,,   """", ■'
While the boys were racing with
their dogs the curlers were -'whooping
it up at a'fast pace in- the big rink,
the olcal curlers divided Into 14 rinks,
■seven' with,the president and? seven
«with the vice-presidents. A" series." of
seven games was "played and' the presidents links won out by at total score
of 70 to 67, although'the" vice-presJ..
dents team won five games- out of the
■even frayed. It was a roaring game
all through and the victors ate oysters
"'at tbe expense of .the vanquished at
the Northern Hotel the same night.
The score: President La we 7, G.

' The evening was'also mado merry
by a grand baU'glvon by thoMazzI-
rioblc orchestra In Victoria Hall, which
lasted' into the day aftor now year's.'
The hall was crowded and all seemed,
to mako the best of tho merry times.
The New" Year was- ushered ln by
two false'alarms at the Fire Hall. The
first came in immediately after midnight on the New Tear and the second
one an-hour or two later. The cui
prit, or culprits, who plays . these
pranks/must be, a maniac, and woe
betide him if he ever gets, caught.' -.
On Friday morning at 1.15 an alarm
Vas turned iri from box 34 and a**few
minutes later the b:f-*;ade waa hard
at work trying to check the fire' which
originated at Cody's stable on.McPher-
son Avenue, close to the G. N. R;
tracks. The fire had, however, got
such a strong hold that-it was past-
redemption, and the attention of the,
fir-- fighters.was centered-ori checking It. In this th.ey were successful:
As they were'getting ready^to return
tb their quarters the,fire alarm was
onco more heard, and this time from
the station* itself. -. Upon immediate
investigation it was round that Brace's
Hall and Gill's Boarding Hoilse were in
flames. . Both these properties belong
to-W.„Gv Bruce.-,* The three lines of
hose were turned on, and although the
"ffres were"checked" "both"'plaoe^'are
a- total -wreck. Upon enquiry we are
informed by Wm. Bruce that they were
not'completely -covered. by- insurance.

about the evils sought to be eradicated
We also venture to assert'that these
well-meaning Individuals do riot know
the basic reasons causing these evils,
or if thoy did, would read aright the
lessons of 'the' past and realize the
folly of palliative means.« The .history'
of remedial legislation Is by no means

mon and women.,
/ In order to cure any disease common
sense ^ dictates the removal of the
cause.' In dealing with' the ' typhoid
epidemic which-prevailed in this city
some 'time - ago It would have' been
the height of folly for the city officials
tb have started erecting all,kindsr"of
hospitals. TheXmedical^men showed
tbat the water supply, waa-the cause
ot the trouble, and that the authorities
d«allng..wlth this-matter in a practical
mariner by attending tothe cause had
been -. sufficiently, vindicated to,. need
furthei elaboration. The methods ad-;
opf«d in dealing with such -"problems'
naturally"., present themselves, in "different waya to .various individuals, but
"still the fact-is that the cause Is tho,
factor upon which,all investigation,of
effects muat.be approached, and.to
patch up", the effects still leaves the
cause;-and the problem still with us,
although perhaps in another aspect.
-1 do not jUBt know what the moral
reform candidates in this city propose
to do "if elected tb-office, but If-they
honestly propose to" remove the cause
of the evils then all thinking men and
women." should bo ,wlth theni.*, To do
this,'however, they-would be Social-

to be classed,, amongst the adherents
