:' The second game,' between Wardner

-London, May 20.—Keir Hardie wants

impossible." /". ,''■,,■

Monday, evening, about 7.40, the fire
bell rang when the brigade made, an exceptionally flue turn-out, .which' was
particularly noticeable because of the

done and the incipient,blaze caused
by some smouldering paper " in the

- On Saturday last there was a hurry-
up call of the Cily fathers and at
2.30 there was a goodly number of
alderman '(the only absentee was J.
Podbielsncik) and representative citizens in the Council Chamber. Mayor
Bleasdell informed those present that
the purpose ot the "meeting was to
discuss question/that had been raised
relative to thcainount to be,charged
to Barnes' Circus'for Ub one day stand
here and that it was-not by* any means
to be taken"-'a"s a reflection upon the
City-Clerk who had granted license for
$20 as per. the charge made on a previous occasion, but to ascertain the opinions of the ratepaj-ers'in the matter,
inasmuch "as this was. for a'one day-
stand and not for a week's continuous
performance as was the previous sojourn of this animal show last year.
Mr. W. S. Lane, of Ross, Larie and
McDonald,' spoke on -the legal aspect
of the" matter and cited the by-law and
gave an .interpretation ' thereon, but
in order that no mistaken Impression
might be created that the sum in question be taken as a precedent; suggest*
ed the advisability of so informing'the
circus*" authorities. Motion was passed accordingly that the* City Clerk be
instructed to notify Mr. Barnes. Messrs
Gates, Barclay,'Cree, Pollock and.others spoke in", favor of allowing this circus to give its performance at the'fee
stipulated and lt..\vas.',decided accordingly. ."   , "*'' ..

Two Prominent Mining Engineers to
Leave City this week with Party of
Thirty to Take up Work Commenced
Last Summer—Both Engineer's were
Connected with the Opening up of
the Crow's Nest Pass Coal Areas—
Steam and Coking Coal In the Park.
, James McEvoy, of Toronto, and R.
G.Drlnnau, of Vancouver, arrived in
Edmonton recently ^and are now -"fathering together a party for a summer's
work in the coal areas of Jasper Park
near* Brule Lako. , Mr. McEvoy was
for many years with the Geological!
Survey branch of the Dominion" Government, and twelve or thirteen years
ago made the first geological survey
*. *
through Jasper Pass.     He later jb'tu-
ed  the  Crow's  Nest- Pass   Coal  Co.
with which Mr Driririan was associated
for a number of years as chief engin-
\' ■>'
eer.     They are now both acting as
- -   : -, -
the representatives of Toronto capitalists interested in the development cf
Jasper Park coal areas.
Messrs. McEvoy arid Drinnan will
leave the city this week for Jasper
Park with a party of thirty men and
will be engaged in - prospecting, work
for at least three months. Last summer they had a party working in Jasper Park for five months, and located
a claim near Brule Lake, ten miles
*- ,> •
east of the Jasper collieries. This
season they will prospect for the best
ways .of opening up their claims.
, "There, are not any extensive coal
areas in Jasper Park." .said Mr Drinnan to the Bulletin recently, in speaking of the claims which he located
last summer. . The coal is of a good
quality,, however.. " It seems to be a
continuation of the'coal of-the Brazeau region.'- We found an outcropping at the surface of excellent steam
and-coking-coal. , ' '.',7.   . .  )	
Mr Drinnan.experienced considerable
"difficulty last year in getting his'party
into.the,Jasper Park from Edmonton
as the terminal of the steel, was then
at, Wolf tCreek, but -will b& able 'to
travel - this year as far as, the Athabasca-River by rail to a point within
a few miles'of the entrance to the

In taking'a general view'.of .the,coal
mining Industry over here,. l"J <>!)__erve
that.it is fairly,active. *< Of course,:U
being the spring season, our t-riniianU
for the Baltic and ether large European centres, are now being, shipped,
andjprices "are fairly well-maintained.
There are^ several-'distrlcts where
there arc disputes" which, have "been on
for many months,-the'cause being
prices and hori-unlbri'men, but the
most Important-dispute of the many*is
the one in.the ^outh Wales coal"districts of the Rhondda Valley.', In this
valley some 13,000 men and boys have
been on striko for Over $even months,
and their determination • to continue
the conflict is more so* as * I write
than at any time since they came-out.
I will not forget the grand, heroic
mothers, wives who are standing untold hardships and privations. It Is
here in the home circles that our hearts
pain . us as we ,.look upon the littlo
ones and hear their cries for food. The
mothers and daughters of South'Wales
are taking a noble part in.this bitter,
I am sure there has never
employers and employes than this one
in the Rhondda Valley of South Wales.
Here we have on the one side enormous vvealth,, while on 'the other side
we,have poverty and suffering. In
this conflict :_the future-emancipation
of the South-;\Vales miners will be
very largely ^interested upon the" question of a fair wage for their labor.
I have„ouillned the whole'of tlie dispute ' in some* of my former articles,
but I will' just say with? all sincere*
earnestness .that' it is a shame and a
disgrace to our'present-day enlighbep-
ment with -all' our boasted progress,
that.,men, yes;-'practical miners with
every experience'essential to mining,
,having"'to risk their lives amidst the
dangers of those firey mines for less
than one dollar, per day, in tKose abnormal-places. , .Yet those employers
are making enormous profits.0 I have
given them to the Jouranl readers before in an ''itemized . form, but hear,
are trie profits of .twenty of the South
Wales coal companies', taking an ave.-'
age pertod of eight and one-half years'
total capital Invested: • £12,736,153
profits upon' capital invested for the
eight and one-half years; £13,364,577
the average dividend for the twenty
been" a more.bitter conflict
companies "working out'at' £10 3s._8d.
per cent per-annum.-- - There has likewise been paid,in'dividends to the ordinary shareholders £6,677,732 in the
eight and one;haJ.f' years.
Now,' these' ate facts* which were
brought 'before the Welsh' conciliation
board a short time ago. Now, as we
read and think over these questions
which" are real actual facts, can we
wonder at., men' becoming passionate
and losing control of themselves? Yes
there is a greater work .before the industrial workers of the world, but the
beginning' must not be delayed until
the world' is ready. , Great Britain's
workers must see-to-their Interests,
Likewise our comrades' In ;tho United
States must see'to their Interests and
tho only way to improve our interests
as workers Is to select men from our
own ranks to represent us ln our legislative halls.  '
< (Ed.—tho fact" that the omployors
aro -making huge profits has nothing
whatever'to do with thb mlho workers.
If this view wero corroct then It would
bo lh order for tho employooa of a concern which wascompollod.'becuuso of
extraordinary circumstances arising, to
operate at a Iobb to participate In
those Iodsos. This mothod of drawing parallels Is based on thb fulso
promise that thoro Ih an Identity of Intorost between omployor and employeo

gander, we fall to see wnere anyone
possessed of an atom of logic cannot
understand that the workers should
help pay, the loss if any occurs. This
idea of 'heads I win, tails you' lose"
ls, an erroneous one'.' ' The employer
of labor has afl the requirements to'
operate liis plant except one commodity, labor,power, and he applies the
same rule in purchasing this commodity as he -does every' other, viz./ to
buy at the lowest price obtainable, and
as is the rule' of tho:market,-vwhether
labor," pig iron or. sugar; the sellers do
all they. can. to obtain the highest
price.. .- Let us'put aside 'all sentimentality-and " look' the "situation
squarely .'in the face — Capital and
Labor are not twins as some* of the
'"leaders'^- would have us 'believe, but
on the contrary, the former's supporter's are looking-after .their material
interests'and use every, effort to/make
the best bargain they can when purchasing,, commodities, tand the fact
that'-the human peddlery of energy
are animate objects in nowise affects
the principle involved. The employer
prefers-individual bargaining..' The
employee realizes his weakness as an
Individual is forced into'collecti've.bar-
gainlng. j, The employer endeavors to
fix ^the ..wage scale at, the minimum
figure; the employee, on the;contrary,
the highest wage procurable.* .The.employer-dislikes 8 hour laws because of
.the fear that*production may be'limited ;*:the';employee-fights for" an 8 hour
day and hopes to make it even fewer
houre.7. The', sooner both parties-'real-
i'ze their respective positions the-quick-
er they .will keep7_ou___of__misIeading.
"deductions as^the one outiin'ed-'in'the
above article.- We may say so far, as
th©.- employer- "is concerned ' he is
clearer on- the -subject than many' of
the employees,'largely as a' result*of
the Utopian' teaching of men of Henry
Evans type.-, * If the selection0of men
to look after the ■.workers' interests
be advocated' from among those who
hold to the belief'that there is aniden-
tlty of Interests or a connection between profits and" wages then hopeless
confusion must follow.)
TSngllsh seamen, through their union',

Dr. Bertillon Tells French Nation It
_i8 In.Danger of Dying out*     '
.PARIS—The Journal Official publishes an article by Dr. Bertillon, chief
statistician ^to the government, ln
which the dangers to France are made
plain .In,',the' birth an.' death rates for
1910. . The complete figures follows:
Marriages,'. 305,289, divorces 13,049,
births 7741358, deaths 703,777. ,kT)io
births are' the; lowest for a century.
In 1805 the births numbered 1,018,000.
They dwindled to 983,000 In 1862 ^and
numbered 899,000 In 1887. The'deitth
rate in 1910 was exceptionally tyw
yet the excess of births over deaths
was only 70,581, compared with 884,061
In Germany.
Dr. Bertillon conclude*, by saying
that there is no reason, psychological
or -economic which presents Prance

no motive for hor resigning herself

, C.'.M. O'Brien; M.P.P., (for*-Rocky
Mountains, Alberta, deUYered an able
lectui-ft.on Socialism, in the*Unique
Theatre last night..' J."w.-Eastwood
presided and there was a big andi-
ence Including a large perccr.tag. of
small business' men.
■ A thousand organizations., said Mr.
O'Brien had sprung into wiatance to
deal" with' the prevailing social unrest
but the Socialist organization was tho
only one that- went' to the root of. the
evils.,' The others Ignored - the \iause-"-
and tried to cure the evil* by dealing
with the-effects.
' Aristotle found that the cause of
poverty In his day was slow production. Inthe'last few generations men's
productive powers had marvellously increased, yet poverty persisted. , Wby
was this? It was because a*small class
exploited the labor of the masses.
Formerly t^he^ijiillionaire hypotnteed
our forefatm___nto the belief that
their wealth came from heaven. Now
the kids wanted to know where and
how the millionaire got his-wealth.
•■Under slavery class exploition depended on the' ownership of men. Under feudalism' the barons owned the'
land and they had as much power over
the products.of labor as if they had"
owned the serfs. • Under capitalism a
small number of people owned the
machinery of production.* This machinery of production represented * the
accumulated knowledge and labor of
thousands- of years. -^Yet a few' men
control it. Twenty-nine men in Can-,
ada had it in their power to say whether the" big industries should be kept
in operation' or not. The men who
controlled ' the railways, 'steamboats,
and other arteries of commerce owned the products- of earth. The farmer
and business "men might have' title
deeds of various kinds of property,
.but-they'merely amounted to a certificate to a steady job. Like the laborers
they were' merely wage, earners, selling not, hay or boots, but-their life-
force 'or labor * power. ' - •
J'lAs to 'Socialism, the speaker said
that it was the now science of sociology, .developed by the laboring class
iii order- to express the point of view
of the workingman. ,^The capitalist
had taught the workers various kinds
of science," when- by so doing" the efficiency of the laborer, was increased.
But'they had not "taught -them° the
true science of sociology, because it

-„*_o.Uu.- _*.__ noauju-iv-ic.fittt—LIie^ay_s-
tem of labor exploitation. Moreover,
the capitalist could not get at the fact,
because it jwas not their'material interests to do so. * "-
, History as taught in . the schools
gave false impressions. The great man
theory.hadbee'n exploded,' yet histories
deal almost wholly with the doings of
alleged great men. The materialistic
conception of history was the only true
one!    y
Turning to the question of surplus
values, the speaker said that if the
workers were taught to measure
lumber,' capitalism would soon fall.
Labor was the source of value. A
gold mine' at the north polo would be
of no value, because, labor could not
bo applied to It. r
Speaking of tho class struggle, ho
said capitalism when lt camo on tho
stngo of human dovolopment ruthlessly abolished the old first, second, third,
fourth and fifth estates. At first It
built up a middle class, but.now tho
trusts and combines wero abolishing
the middle class,    v   •
Tho age of Individualism had passed
away, but the individual Idea which
went with tho uso of tho Individual tool
still survived. Collective production
was abolishing privato property. No
stockholder In thoC. P. It. could lay
his hands on a*slnglo tlo nnd,sny ho
owned It.
Social production mado man a social
animal against his will. Men hnd boon
obllgod to work nnd llvo togcthor; ond
woro now being forced to own togoth-
or, . It wasn't tho crookedness of-the
politicians or tho cussedncss of tho
capitalist thnt caused suffering In tho
midst of plonty. It was tho fact that
tho workors failed to rocognlzo tho
forco of tho nocosslty to transform tho
capitalist ownership of tho moans of
production Into public ownorshlp.
Thoro was an Intorostlng discussion—

To the Editor, District Ledger.
, Dear -Sir,—Please allow me space in
your ,valuable paper to "enlighten the
public as to what brutal methods are
used in the Clty"of Fernie to destroy
dogs.   ■-■.■'
A few days ago one of our city officials empounded a dog ' In the ■ city
pound, situated by the river side in
West'Fernie."",        '    '
Chief of Police, Clerke resorted" to
a revolver 'to destroy the" unfortunate
creature. Standing -on- the; bridge,
,some few,yards away,, the chief shot
and shattered half the poor creature's
tongue, and the door not being secured
allowed it to get at large, bleeding profusely from the mouth, and laying
around the streets for two'days * afterwards. ' „
■ Dr. Anderson, the Medical Officer
for Health for the district! on .being
informed of-the above, at "once took
steps - to investigate the .report, with
the result that an effort, was made by
the. officials to recover the-dog. Eventually it was -found in the north-east
end o'f the city.and taken away and
destroyed..-       "' '
. This is a case for the s!',P. C. A.
officers to. investigate,* and it" is .a
breach of regulations and a disgrace to
our city: which' should b^ brought to
light at once. • ■ .■

five weeks and consequently did not
see your letter of April 21st until looking over my mall,
In reference to a reported statement appearing in tho press that
when Interviewed by n representative
of ono of the Edmonton papers (I don't
know which) I am credited „jvlth say-
ing "Tho miners nre ready to go back
to work ns required by the Lemieux
Act-until a decision Is reached by tho
arbitrators, etc., otc." This' Is entirely Incorrect, What I did say, how
over, was: "Since the ml noro officials
havo decldod to npply for a Conciliation Board, ns provldod In tho Lemieux Act, lt la rumored that a vote on
tho resumption of work, ponding tho
findings of the arbitrator!), Ib to be
conslderod by all the local unions of
District 18, etc., otc." This Is somewhat different from tho published report nnd wns merely a repetition of
what was "street talk" at tho tlmo.
I did not notico the roport In tho

"Mine Stoiy  For the week.: ...   	
HEAT FROM  DUST .7...   .7   ..\...
' The natural resources' ot our country
have boen considered so inexhaustible
that it is only-very recently that-th*
attention of the public has been directed to the enormous* amount "of material wastes in our "various industries;
and it is to be hoped that the so-called
conservation movement may continue
until we, as a nation, reach the industrial efficiency that has been attained
by the older countries—Great Britain1,
Germany, France'and others.'    Furth-
, ermore, it is to be hoped that we may
not wait as these "countries have until
the most valuable resources are gone
forever .before putting this conservation process into effect.
According, to the United States Geological Survey's report, 459,209,073
. short tons of coal were produced in
the United States in the'year 1909, of
which 83,000,000 short tons were anthracite coal from Pennsylvania. _
■* In the eastern section of the United
States,' where most of the coal is mined and used, the price of the better
grades of coal is steadily increasing.
It is now estimated that the maximum
tonnage of anthracite possible .to produce annually has nearly been reached.
If'this is true the price of this popular domestic fuel will in„a few years
place it out of the reach of all but the
wealthy for domestic fuel. Then people- must look for some other kinds of
fuel'which will be suitable for house*
hold use.  , [
On,the other hand, thedemand for
Industrial fuel is increasing more rapidly than the development of coal mining, and therefore manufacturers are
already on the lookout for a' more economical fuel in order to reduce the
cost pot   production,   or" at   least   to
■   keep - if from being increased.      Our
industrial.prestige is due in no small
measure to our, having had great' natural resources ;and as competition be-*
■-. comes keener with other nations and
the price of our fuel, is at the same
time advancing, we must make use, or
the cheaper fuels and fuel wastes in
-order to hold our present position.
,The( purpose  of this  article is' to
discuss in a general way, the various
-   materials suitable for fuel which are
now  wasted or  considered, of  small
value, and therefore disposed of at'a
*.   :levy vrlc_ and=^to*=*discuss the=wavs
that such wastes may be utilized to
' better advantage. \ • '
The following fuel wastes and low
grade   fuels   are   considered   in   this
article:    Bituminous slack, anthracite
culm," coke-breeze, sawdust and wood
,   was^e, lignite coal and peat.
.. Bituminous Slack.   Most companies
mining bituminous coal screen all or
part of their product before shipping,
' to remove the dust and finer pieces
of coal' which Is called "slack".   , The
* size of the opening In the screen used
varies with tho different operations,
but   the size   of'the opening   most
commonly   used is   3-4 of an , inch;
,   so generally speaking slack is that
portion of the mined coal which passes through the screen with a 3-4in.
openings,        . ' •    ,
As hlgh-ns 50 per cent, of the conl
*    mined   Is   ln   tho form    of   slack.
Formerly thore was  no  market,  for
tlifs slack," and  It  was  dumped  In
plies nenr tho mlno nnd accumulated
from  year to  yenr".  TheBo  piles  of
slack wero sometimes set on* flro to
got- rid of them, and would smoulder
away for yours. '
At tho  present  tlmo  thoro  Is  In
,  cortnln parts of this country, for ex-
•   nmplo tho eastern and middlo stales,
a market for thiB slack conl for use
In specinl furnnce., nn nn industrlnl

. Ittsburg slack mny he hnd In car-
lond lota for 85 cents to $1 n ton delivered at tho plnnt.    In other states
it brings 15 to 50 cents per ton, loaded
on cars at the mine. - How this waste
by'means of briquetting and the gas-
producer can be converted into desirable household fuel and power will be
described further on in this article.
v * t*-
.Anthracite Culm ,
Anthractie culm is similar to bituminous slack in that it composes    the
smaller sizes of anthracite coal. .  As
with bituminous coal these finer sizes
were formerly a waste material", and
in   the  anthracite  fields of  Pennsylvania to-day there are great hills of
this culm which have accumulated* for
many years. *  Anthracite culm however possesses the advantage over bituminous slack that it produces practically no smoke in burning, and therefore large amounts of it are now being removed from the banks where it
has been stored for years, subjected
to" a washing process if necessary and
shipped to the larger cities of New
York State and "New England, where it'
is  sold as a fuel for heating ,office
buildings - and   producing  power   - in
plants located in cities having strjet
smoke laws.     New York city is the
largest user of this culm, ...
' This anthracite culm makes excellent briquets and gas-producer fuel, as
will be* shown presently.   '
..-,- Coke Breeze
Coke breeze Is a by-product of the
coke or gas industries. - In the preparation of illuminating gas, the coke
resulting from the 'distillation of the'
coal when removed "from retorts' is in
the form of large jand small, pieces and
dust.' ■ This .dust and smaller sizes
are called coke breeze. r  .
In the manufacture of coke/'both by
the bee hive oven and by-product methods, coke breeze is also obtained In
large "quantities. Methods of utilizing it are described further on in this
Sawdust and Wood Waste
■* One of the most' wasteful of our
industries is' the wood | Industry. ;Mr.
George B. Frank'forter states .in a-recent article on."Wood Waste and its
Utilization' that the best that model
mills can do at the present time- in
the logging .and 'milling part of, the industry is to save-a scant 40.per-cent
of the> total weight of the7,wood,jn
lumber laths and shingles. \ . Fifteen
years ago the-average, was'probably
heat' value o. tie fuel and, as it is
non- caking, special furnaces are required to. burn the. raw .lignite -pre-
perly. Lignite cannot' be stored in
the open in large piles on account of
the slackening down that takes place
when' it isr exposed to the weather for
only a few weeks. Spontaneous combustion'also occurs more easily in piles
of this fuel than with'bituminous coal.
Since its foundation,

is about 35 per cent lumber and,65 per
stumps' tops, slabs and sawdust. From
5 to 15 per cent of'the logs sawed
go into" slabs. About 20 " per cent
of the log goes into sawdust." * The
most economical lumbor mills in the
country, at Marshfield, Oregon, saw on
an average 100,000,000 feot of lumber
In' a year, or approximately 150,000
tons of lumber.' On the basis of 65
per cent waste, this ono mill alone produces annually 255,000 tons of wood
waste, and this waste ls burned either
on the ground whero the tree3 were
cut or in waste burning furnaces at
tho mill. H,one mill, and'that, the
most economical, produces .annually
25,000 tons of waste, thon tho total loss
for all the mills In this country must
be enormous'.
The wood waste can be utilized In
several ways, somo of which will be

Peat , -
Peat is the lowest grade of fuel recognized in the classification qf fuels.
It is-the partially decomposed remains of moss! and other similar plants,
which are found in wet marshy places.
Its high moisture content (sometimes
as high as 85 per cent.) has prevented its extensive use as a fuel, as all
attempts to dry it artiflcally on a large
scale have not been profitable, as' the
cost of handling large amounts of
raw material and supplying heat to dry
it_are prohibitive.
•Numerous'experiments in this country to utilize "peat for fuel have; not
met with much success up .o the present time,-but possibly in a few years
the high-price of other,fuel will lead
to further' developments of peat for
fuel in districts near the,peat beds.
Methods of, Utilizing Fuel Waste
There are two general methods of
utilizing the fuel material described
above;  ■ ., , ,     .
1.   The * gas-producer to convert it
into commercial power.
- ,   . - *
> 2.   The briquetting "process to convert it into a 'domestic fuel.
Gas Producer
' The 'gas-producer has been brought
up to.such a state of perfection that
it is without doubt the-most efficient
means of obtaining power from the
poorer grades of fuel. To those who
are7 not, familiar with the principles
of the gas-producer it may be well, to
explain that a gas-producer is an apparatus for burning a thick bed ot
fuel into.which,air is blown. Steam
is' also sometimes introdiiced% with the
air..v< Combustion of the fuel in tlie
lower" part of the apparatus forms carbon monoxide in passing through the
incandescent fuel in'the upper part
of the bed." The -steam is broken up
into hydrogen; and oxygen. The hydrogen and carbon monoxide are'combustible gases and diluted by nitrogen

In thoso European' countries where
the supply of high -grade fuel is limited, gas-producers are extensively used
as a means of generating gas Rowor

where coal Is scarce, mining companies use a scrub growth of wood for
gas-producer fuel with satisfactory results. I s

Much liasvbeen, said of" late years,
and most of - it * decidedly, uncomplimentary of that type of person known
as-the agitator. , ^He has .been condemned by the majority as a disturber
of'.thepeace, a.'fomenter of unrest, a
public, nuisance,, and in general a person more dangerous than useful in the
community. , We have not hesitated
to call him anarchistic, and to put upon
him blame for much of the social unrest of the time.', '*"._*
h The agitator "is one who is so impressed by som<fparticular - evil or injustice that he uses every available
opportunity to make public declaration
of the fact,' and to arouse the' people
to a similar realization of wrong. He is
usually willing to adopt any method of
publicity-*for.the'fact. After a very
short time7he discovers also that the
average • person requires , the drastic
dose to arouse him from "the apathy, or
ignorance by7reason of'which {he
wrong is permitted and continued...'
r       _ i- -*.i -  L
As a matter, of fact, our usual judgment bf tlie agitator is unfair and unwise. Our' condemnation of him can
grounds. He^is worthy of entirely different treatment,", 'judged not only
from' the'quality,of his motive,' but
from .he final re&ults of his agitation.
The agitator is'c absolutely essential
to good citizenship. * The menace of
this country Is not the man who declares with rough emphasis the fact of
evils that exist, and , to our social
sbame, but rather .the, man ot silent
dignity who ls either Ignorant of real
conditions or diffident in making, declaration of them.'' Of q}l men, he Is
the most to be dreaded andde'nounced
, Tho opposite of' agitation is stagnation, and stagnation ,1b death. Agita-.
tion simply stirs th© ■ public thought
and prevents the community from
sleeping through tho hour of peril. Tho
sounding Insistently In the ear of the
drowsy dreamer, and warning him that
the tlm© for action-has como. Ho receives just the samo treatment that
we vocally or mentally accord tho
alarm .clock, when It has crashed Into
tho fairy fabric of an early morning
dream.    ,        '     '
'Whatever ot evil* oxI'bIb In this
country to-day, exists simply bocauso
of tho lack of agitation concerning
It. Thore Is enough good In Canada to
wlpo out all tho Injustice that may
exist at tho present time. It remains

MONTREAL.—A significant- notice
of an Important resolution wass allowed to slip by. without- comment, a few
days ago when the Postmaster General announced at. Ottawa that employes
of the postal service, ■wore\t6 be reclassified. Briefly Mr, Lemieux proposes to rearrange the sorvlce hrsuch
a way that mall will lio on tho move
almost every moment Irom tho time
it ls posted to the tlmo that* lt is
delivered, Tho wasto seconds, minutes
and even hours whenn lottor ls at
rest, either ln tho"comer post box
awaiting collection,' in a, sack In the
post offico waiting to lie sorted out,
or In a pigeon holo awaiting delivery
■IVlll bo reduced to a minimum.
According to Mr. Lwnioux.B statement several of tbe cliWBes of "postal
omploycos are to bo abolished, and an
Increaso of pay In to lie granted to
tho othors. In Montreal It Is noticed that tlio uniformed forces, tlio men
who walk tho city wltli tho pouchoB
and bags full of mall on thoir backs,
nro to bo decrensod. Until tho reason
was dlscovorod thoro was considerable
objection on tbo part ot the citizens.
Now, It appoars, tho govornmont has
In band plana calling for tho Installation of tho tubo syBtom ot letter dcllvory nnd collection. Drop a noto In
to tbo tubo In your offlco and, presto,
It Ib whlskod off to tlw post offico

othors ot Its kind nnd Hliot Into anothor
tubo whicli vfctsks It off, to tbo oub-
poflt offlco nearest tlio address on tho
envelope If lt (s for tlio out ot town
mall, of courso, It has to wait for tho
fast growing obsolette train sorvlco.

Tb the Editor of The Science* and Art
'   *-     .'    of,-"Mining "' '••'*'   .--
' Sir,—In No., 15.,Vol. 21, I answered
Uie .question by.R. N., which" read': "Haa
an exploson- been known to result
tbrbugh the sparks • caused by'a blow
with- a miner's - pick on iron • pyrites
whjle. mining ;cbal?' ,  .'7
As your readers are aware,.I stated
iu-iny answer-.that a few years, ago
experiments had been carricd.bat with
the' object' of. settling' "this question
once and for all,'.and the conclusion
arrived at was that' in no case' were
these sparks capable-of igniting fire1
damp. -      ' "
Since my answer appeared Mr. J. H.
Brass and Mr. R. .Calland have each
given an instance that seems to thro-tv
doubt-upon the accuracy of. this conclusion. -In, view.of this, I'think it
would be interesting to R. N. and
doubtless many other readers if I gave
a more detailed description of the experiments. " ■*.
The investigations were conducted
by means of a* very, simple apparatus,
in which the'Stone for producing-the'
sparks was set In a dwarf-pilaster,'
while a small chimney was formed .lh'
front of It, with a series of Bunsen
burners below for giving out .the gas
to  be ■ experimented  with.' '" * In . this
manner the chimney was filled by an
inflammable mixture of air and gas,
while spark's were produced by striking'the* stone with a pick so that they
came in contact with the gaseous mixture, the speed and volume of the., gas
being so ' regulated as to secure the
maximum of Inflammability!
' "When lighting gas was used its ignition followed almost every blow'of
tlie pick, .but afterwards,-marsh  gas
was substituted, wliich has been shown
<by.analysis.tb be almost identical'wjth
fire-damp.   * With* the marsh gas, however,- It 'was never found possible to
provoke, ignition by means of sparks.
A" mixture was then made of three
parts marsh gas and one part of lighting gas, and this new gas mixed with
the air could not be ignited with sparks
produced by the pick. ■.**. It was found
I'that, to obtain ignition by spark's; .a
mixture 'of-marsh' gas  and   lighting
gas-in equal volumes must be employed.-   .These experiments,.often repeated with the same' results, show' that
if mixture's of air and fire-damp * are
to be" Ignited'by sparks produced by'a
pick, the''fire-damp must contain,. iri
addition "Ito tbe marsh gas, a proportion of hydrogen bf other hydro-carburets much higher*- than , any that -an-'
alysis shows, .to'' exist.

. -   .  Canada   ""''" '■*"'  *''
The future cf'-Canada iu'illimitable^
and it is strange to think-that it'was
only about 1870 that the vast possibilities of the-North-West were at all adequately realized.   Since then the impression of the physical greatness"and
resources, of.° Canada   has   steadily
grown.   There have been difficulties of
a great kl'uJ.   The nation has seemed
to halt-at time's/   But whatever temporary checks may come,' there is no
doubt as'to the rapid and certain increase of the wealth, the papulation,
and ths power of Canada.   As Principal Grant powerfully and convincingly
argued, a nation so conscious of its
strength' and its future will not consent* to be.'merged In and dominated
by the United States. At present there
is no comparison botween" the population of the two territories, and annexation -by tho States would mean the
suppression of* the potent individuality
of- the young nation.   Goldwln Smith
never took full account of the depth
and power bf popular, sentiment, and
.we-believe that Canada will be more
and more content to reckon herself
with the Motherland and   her  other
Dominions.  But obviously the place of
Canada by-and-by will be wholly al-
,tered.   In the nature of  things   our
'little Island cannot develop-as Canada
must develop, and we look forward to
the day when Canada will attain a i
relative importance which will deprive j
Great Britain of. her claim to a1 metropolitan position.. Of course, in a sense,'
Great Britain must always b'e tbe,metropolis of!the English-speaking race
in general, and of the British Empire
in particular.   But as no limit can be
set to .the increase of Canada, readjustment must.follow, and when the time
comes it will be adjusted ori the lines
of greater equality.   The form bf connection   will  change, butt, he change
will merely strengthen it.    We ' may
cease to be,alarmed by the spectre of
an   Inevitable   disruption   of existing
ties.   Canada has before her the high
destiny of the chief place In the British' federation.—British Weekly...    '-

trying the ■ effect'of sparks caused by
the repeated blows of a rock' drill <?n
a/hard'stone, in the presence of in.
fiariamable' mixtures of air" and firedamp, but t no ignition was ■ observed.
7"The idea.was then conceived of pro-
.duclng sparks by a steel bar rubbing
against,"an'emery wheel while.revolving at a high speed, when a 'thick and
continuous shower of brilliant sparks
was produced. No one doubted that
the fire' damp would soon be Ignited;
but although a.large jet of air and
fire-damp was made to play upon the
shower of sparks, which were quite
brilliant ln broad daylight, no Ignition
followed, however tho. conditions of
the conditions of the experiment might
be vofled. , N
Not onco throughout the' experiments wns tho shock' of a miners'
pick on Iron pyrites found to give off
sparks that were capable of Igniting
fire-damp, although repeated showers
of sparlia from this source wero projected Into an oxploslvo mixture of
fire-damp' and nlr, Nor wns any rosult obtained by the uso of a pick loaded with an additional mass, weighing
altogether i.% pounds.
At tho ond of tho roport appears tho
following observations: "It Is, thoroforo, perfectly well established that
sparks produced by a minor's pick on
a hnrd substance aro Incapablo of Igniting nn oxploslvo mixture of air and
flro*damp,"  .
It would appear from tho *nbovo

solution of tho problem, nnd yot Mr.

years of age he was. carried off by
pirates who sold him into, slavery.'in
Ireland. There he was I employed; for
seven years as a swineherd, and learned the Irish customs and language. "He
escaped from captivity and reached
the .continent where he prepared for
the priesthood and was ordained bishop.-. He then with the authority of the
Pbpe, returned to Ireland to preach the
gospel to'.'its inhabitants..' It is said
that St. Patrick made UBe.bf tlie shamrock-leaf to Illustrate the" Trinity of
God, and since then-It has become tbe
emblem of that saint.
-The,,principal enemies that St, Patrick found In Ireland were the Druid
priests whose enmity was so great that
St. Patrick was obliged to curse their
fertile -lands bo that they became
dreary, bogs; to curse thoir rivers so
that they produced no fish; to curse
thoir very kettles so that 'with no
amount of fire could, thoy bo made to
boll; and at last to curse tho Druids
thomselvos so that "the earth opened

A popular legend rolatos that the
saint and his followers woro ono cold

pile of snowballs which ho breathed

Tho greatest of St. Patrick's miracles was that of driving vonomouus

they would-cost If bought from*tho
florist. Why, it Is a wonderful bar-
galri! - ■    ,- '
In .England people are much more
keen about gardening'than.we in, Canada are, and If you go to an afternoon
tea there, especially anywhere In the;
country, the style of conversation yon
will hear will, probably be something
like this:—       :/.'■*,.
"Have you seen .the latest kind ol
sweet-pea?"   '-,'-,
"No, hut I  have heard   so   much/
about   lt   I am  trying to, get some
seeds.',' ,.*.'.
"Well, if you'-dq will you please
share with rae arid I will give you
some of my-new pansy, plants."
"Thanks, so much; would you like .
to have a few slips of my pink, be--'
gonias?" •,     -,
"* So they go on, and, In consequence
of this general, interest-in. and knowledge of the subject the gardens there
are. a wilderness of color and form'— J,
just a little too much of a wilderness, <
I must confess, for I thjnk in this country, when we - do have a pretty*garderi,
it Is laid out In better taste than the
English ones, where too often the main
idea-seems to be to see how many
^different  kinds of plants , they   can""
crowd into a garden space.   Still, It Ib-
a fine thing to know the flowers as   *
they do.
Last summer in London, England, a '
flower show was held at seven In the ,
morning, and the admission was limit-  .
ed to members cf the society for fear,
of over-crowding;  yet, at that   very, *
early hour of the day one of tbe largest
halls in the city was practically filled.   .
Gardening, however, Is more than a' -
hobby in the old country; it Is. very',
often taken up' as a ' profession, and j -*
at present, In* one county alone, Sur-'*
rey, there are over two thousand scholars under tuition in practical horticulture, ariiong one hundred and -twenty- '.
pupils are young women who find that
gardening, asr,an occupation for" wo-'
men, ranks among-the first of the professions that they, may follow, since it
ls pleasant, healthful and .profitable."
Girls are holding good positions to-day
all over England as head gardeners,
and several have found   their  "way *
across .the ocean and are doing very
well iri certain parts of Canada and tho
United States;-'-., '      . .
Of course every woman cannot bo  ,.
a professional gardener, but we can
all be 'amateurs If ^we will, and It Is •
comparatively   easy   where    almost
every house has a fair sized plot of,
ground,  back . or front, that} we can
turn Into a garden, not   for ' flowers
only, but for vegetables, *   *

that it came in .contaqt with, a guy
wire or vj.ee versa. At any rate had
gjpod workmanship been'done at that

..Poor, workmanship' caused a flaw in

The Island Situation
We are indebted to Mr..Geo. Petti-
grew, Board -Member, District 28,
for the following:
The situation on the Island remains
much the same as last week, the men
of the various camps remaining solid
and determined to fight to a finish.
The coal corporations and their
friends have had many rumors going
such as "the Washington operators
having paid the officers of the Union
a large sum of money to call this
strike, thus allowing them to capture
the markets hitherto supplied by Vancouver Island.
They also prate about the amount
of coal coming from Washington to
the Island every day, and that Uie
financial support promised by the International being only so much talk
and nothing to it.
Notwithstanding all tbe attempts
made to make trouble and cause dis-
sention ln the ranks lt is having no
We have been having some good
meetings of late, the last one being
addressed by Bro. Farrington on Sunday last (a photo of which will be
sent later). •
The Dominion; Government have
had an officer of * the Labor Department here for a few days investigating conditions, lt is said he has been
busy working among the so-called
joint committee trying to have them
make application for a settlement under the Industrial Disputes Act. This
act being so good that at Britannia
Mines the W. F. of Miners have been
on strike for several months after
having got the decision under this
splendid (?) piece of legislation.
The Premier of British Columbia
(Sir Richard McBride) sent word
since the general strike has been in
operation (although in an indirect
way) he would be willing to have the
Cumberland and Ladysmith dispute
settled by arbitration, and this after
having been appealed to .repeatedly
during the past eight months.
' We are having considerable trouble
in watching men from England and
Scotland, these .men having had it
misrepresented to them that they are
coming to' new coal fields, the coal
companies advancing their fares, this
to be paid when they start work.
We have had several cases tried
before the half yearly assizes of men
alleged to have -broken the law in
Cumberland and Ladysmith in '/the
early days of the dispute, and although found guilty according to the
evidence—one-sided, of course—have
been dismissed with suspended sentences of from one to three years,
To the Editor, District Ledger.
Dear Sir,—I notice in your issue of
'May 24th the publication of what Ib
said to be a draft of a proposed agreement that is to be the basis for set-
tlement of the miners strike on Vancouver Island.     Of course, I do not
know, neither have I been able to
learn, who is responsible for the publication of this, said to be, proposed
agreement. However,-inasmuch as I
am in charge of the Vancouver Island
strike, I do-know that the proposed
agreement, as published, does not set-
forth correctly the miners' position,
and that it was published without proper authority.
(With reference to above, the proposed basis of agreement was clipped
from The Columbian (New Westminster), a paper which we have invariably found to be impartial in handling labor news at the .coast. The
"proposed agreement' ls very similar
to that In vogue between District 18
and the operators of the Crow, and
with the exception of a preferential
list proposed, has every appearance
to the layman of being genuine.
Evidently there must be on the Island
some clumsy, though possibly well-
intentioned, individual handing out
stories to the press, and unfortunately
thla class is not peculiar to the coast.

Notwithstanding the great care displayed ln the manufacture of ■ existing types of electric fuses very slight
differences in the gauges or hardening of the platinum bridge cause one
fuse to 'be more sensitive than another, says the Colliery Guardian. When
a number of fuses are being fired in
series the most sensitive may explode
boforo the eloctrlc current can raise
tho temperature of tho others to tho
ignition point, thus leading to a probable miss-fire with one or more of
tho fuses, which may be tho cause of
serious accident,
The typo of fuse invented and patented by Konrad Schaffler of Vienna
is so constructed that tho Ignition or

methods furnished him ducats to cut

Wilshire was proclaimed .by a number of Socialist publications as a wonderful man and as one of those unflinching champions of human rights
who was making history for the causo
