A dastardly murder was committed
at a ranch a short distance from Cranbrook aibout 9 o'clock on Sunday night,
when S. -Sassomata (Japanese) owner of the Tanch, went out of the shack
to finish his chores before retiring for
the night. He had only. been.out a
very short time when his wife, who
was in the shack, heard the report ot
a gun nearby, and rushing out found
her husband lying on the ground with
part of his face blown off, resulting
from receiving a charge of shot at
short range. He expired In about five
Acting Chief Provincial Constable
Welsby made a hurried trip to Cranbrook iMonday afternoon and took
charge of the case. The guilty party
or parties were clever enough not to
leave any tangible clues' behind, but
on Wednesday Chief Welsby had procured sufficient evidence to warrant
the placing under arrest of another
Japanese resident of Cranbrook, -by*
the name of Katsura.
SasBomata, the deceased, had apparently some deadly and cowardly
enemy or enemies, as some ten
months ago he was attacked one
night and brutally beaten up, and
presumably left for dead. He recovered, however, after being treated In
the hospital at Cranbrook for some
considerable time. The perpetrators
of this crime were never discovered.

Tfie replay, which was caused by

Saturday at Coleman, took .place op.

Wbat the management describe as
the "biggest treat they have ever offered" will be shown on Friday next,
August 21st, at this theatre. This ls a
"movie serial," and something altogether p*ew in the picture world. There
are-fifteen Installments, of two reels
each, and each installment is a feature in itself. The name of the film Is
"Lucile Love, the Girl of Mystery,'1
and is one ot the moat masterly and
awe-inspiring. romances ever produced. Love, adventure and intrigue
run through every foot Of the film, but
the plot Is not of the usual mushy
novelette kind; from start to finish
it Is strong, health^, vigorous and
clean. If you see the first Installment,
we have no fear of you not teeing the
other fourteen. It it a Universal production, which Is a sufficient guarantee of Its quality.

Mr. Rockefeller was quoted as saying that he had nothing to arbitrage
In the mining strike troubles in Colo-,
rado. He denies to working people
the right to organize into unions, even
though he Insists on capitalists forming trusts. He thinks the unions must
be crushed even if he to to lose all
his millions Invented in Colorado, and
notwithstanding his method of dealing with the miners results in the
brutal murdering of men, women and
children, still he says bis conscience
is clear, Wbat If be does monopolise

necessities of a nation? Did not Ood

••War!"   ''War!"is talked everywhere.
Whjjlt is it all about? The replies are as varied as
tlie hues of the chameleon.
Individuals take opposite sides according to the
particular piece of laud where they happened to
he born.   Sublime egotism !
At times like these reason is temporarily dethroned and rabid passion governs. •
The brush of a Vevastchagin, the pen of a Fi'tz-
yatrick and the like-like portrayal by the moving
pictures of the stomaeh-skkening horrors of legalized wholesale murder do not stem the rising tide
of blood lust one particle.
The exordium "Thou shalt not kill" is ineffective and they who are supposedly the teachers of
this doctrine are loudest in their appeals to the populace to slay, maim and destroy. All sorts of lame
excuses' are offered in extenuation, but this does riot
alter the fact that the motto of these agitators
should be "Inconsistency, thou art a jewel."
"What is this war about?" We will try to explain, and know that the logic is flawless, still,
reason being badly twisted, it is not to be expected
that this explanation will be accepted by the majority. Xo, the deeply rooted disease,'' Patriotism,''
the product of generation, carefully nourished by
those whose interests are involved is a hardy plant
and its eradication a difficult problem.
There is one thing certain, that this is to be the
most sanguinary conflict known to history.   Who
to do the fighting, both on the battlefield ami in
" industrial occupations. How to make this clear
to those who will not recognize the fact that "labor
produces all wealth" is no easy task, however, as
we know that "constant dropping of water will
wear away the hardest stone," in like manner a
fow drops of logic may penetrate the hard heads of
even the ultra patriotic.
The war is in progress.   Fact No. 3.
The toll of misery cannot be computed. Fad
Xo. 2.
Very few of those out to butcher each other have
any personal grudge.  Fact No. 3.
The working class of all the countries must bear
the bnmt of the fighting.   Fact. No. 4.
The working class of all the countries must pay
Iln-cost of tho struggle.  Fact No. 5.
The fight is between different factions of the
capitalist class for the purpose of grabbing the
surplus values produced by the wage earners. Fact
Xo. 0.
Here are six fuels that ennnot be contradicted,
then why in the name of common sense should the
working class uf different loiuitricx murder each
Opposition to war is considered by the ultra-
"patriot as little short of treason, and if some of
the hot-blooded war boosters ha'd their way, or did
not this toM'n posses a strong leavening of men capable of sane and sober judgment, uv might look
for the excesses that took place at Birmingham ancl
Plymouth thirteen years ago when the present
Chancellor of tlie Exchequer (Lloyd George) and
Sir Edward Clarke dared to oppose the campaign
against the Boers. On those occasions we find the
worker vieing with the bourgeoise in stoning and
abusing two men who dared to hohl views different
from the majority. AVe also see the same men,
three years later occupying positions of great trust
in the British Parliament—honored and respected
by all.   Verily public opinion is a fickle jade.
Think! the very man who had been accused of
treason, treachery and every crime against patriotism (?) occuping a position second only to the Premier three years later! You will observe. Mr.
Header, that the spirit of patriotism prevailing at
such times is largely created and stimulated by
bright uniforms, brass bands, ete. The soul-stirring
strains of "Rule Britannia" sound splendid and
thrill every nerve and fibre of our body—you
lift your head and stick out your chest—"My
county, 'tis for thee!" By 5:50 the next morning
you have donned your pit clothes, grabbed your
bucket and hiked for the train—and the mine. Not
a slave! No! One thousand times no! A free
Briton! You are not a slave to that whistle, perish the thought! You can quit your job any old
time; yes, siree!   And find another—p-e-r-h-a-p-s!
It really does seem ridiculous to question that in
our country (it's always ours when they want you
to fight, dontcherknow!) we should experience any
difficulty in getting a job, doesn't it? Still, we
must not lose sight of our noble traditions, etc., and
when called upon -should he ready to shoulder
rifle in defense of our rights. (You never hail any
rights before, and if you shouldered a rifle and
fought for them, they gave you a few years in jail
or pei'haps kept you busy chasing bullets.)
There is one thing the worker should not lose
sight of—a little military training is very useful,
and who can tell when the question of our rights
and our country might not be a little nearer home?
Don't despise the methods of your masters—they
have been good enough to subdue you, and why
should not such methods be good enough to subdue tbem. The day may be far distant, the suggestion may be regarded by some as treasonable,

und in defense of a real country—a country that is
yours. The education of the working class consists
in teaching who are their enemies, but it is poor policy to put philosophy against bullets, aud sooner
or later our strength will have lo be shown.
Fellow Workers: If you feel that you are likely
to have an attack of patriotism, a mental disease
that is affecting many throughout thc land, stop
a minute nud ask yourself n few simple questions.
How many years is it now since I first started
to Work for wages!
Uow much,have 1 put aside for a Vainy day?
How does it happen that J, a member of that class
that produces everything of value in the shape of
commodities, have such hard rustling to make ends
meet ?
Why should I go forth nt the risk of life and
limb and help to butcher Germans and Austrians
when I can stay here, run no risks and work-in
harmony with these foreign-speaking fellow workers?
Why should I go abroad under the mistaken ini-
other for iho gratification of those who batten on j p reunion that I am aiding lo protect home (?) ami
their bodies, both in peac and war? The answer j kindml (?). when right here and now I can barely
i« simple, the international working class, Intel, obtain enough to supply my pwn immediate fit mily
lectually brighl as regards me-elmnieal subjects, is
y<?t wofully ignorant touching social consciousness.
"Accuracy is. jn every case advantageous to
beauty and just reasoning to delicate sentiment. In
vain would we exalt the one by depreciating the
To the average patriotic Britisher, thc action of
Great. Britain in maintaining the neutrality of Belgium 'Jjy engaging; in war with Germany ami* Austria, is nothing short of heroic. They can only see
in such action the beautiful sentiment of defending
the weak against the strong. The fact that Germany has engaged in. this war to maintain the
independence of'Austria against Russia and at the
same time permit them to observe their honorable
obligations towards the former nation is regarded
by the Britisher as absurd. Yet. thc sacredness of
Britain's cause is just as ludicrous to the, German
as the righteousness of Germany's cause is to the
average Britisher.   ,
In the height of passion, or patriotism, call it
what yon will, the calm, deliberate judgment of
man gives place to a sentimental ruling that is
neither logical nor just. Few people stop to- consider what, is meant by the oft printed tale of "Our
country's danger." If it really is ours, we have
reason for alarm. History has a most disconcerting knack of proving that a conquered nation is
often better off under the conqueror than it was
previously. Few would like to state that South
Africa is worse'-off under British rule than was the
ease under the.Boer republic' Neither cah it be
satisfactorily proved that the residents bf the Provinces of Alsace-Lorraine are worse off under
German rule than they were under the French,
The remarkable progress made by Great Britain
during the last hundred years is a striking tribute
to,the Teuton, when we realize that the reigning
powers have been direct descendants of the Guelfs
and Ghibellines, one of the oldest Teutonic families
in the world. It would almost seem that our empire has beeu created during the reign of these
Teutonic kings and queens. These may'seem disagreeable facte to the Britisher who has visions of
fighting for king, country, traditions, etc., but history will verify, and the individual who has such a
deadly hatred of the German might stop to consider
the benefits that have been conferred upon us during thc reign of the Guelf family.
"Nothing, at first, view, may seem more unbounded than the thought of man, which not only
escapes all human power and atuhority, but is not
even restrained within the limits of nature and
reality. To form monsters, and join iucongruous
shapes, and appearances, costs the imagination no
more trouble than to conceive the most natural and
familiar objects."—Mills.

On Sunday afternoon a discussion
took place in the meeting as to the advisability ot starting an agitation for
the formation of a I^abor party. It was
pointed out that these were two Socialist parties in the country, . and
that there was a large labor element
that would not support either. The
idea mentioned at the Local was to
devise a plan whereby there could be
a candidate placed in the field tbat
would be acceptable to all parties,
along the lines of the I. L. P. of Great
Britain. There is no doubt that if
should a party was started, it would
receive suppdVt from a large number
of armers and others who are not yet
ready for the doctrine of Socialism,
but who would support advanced labor legislation. As organized labor is
getting Jt In the neck every time from
the old party politicians, any plan that
might help the situation should be
welcome at this stage. At present the
working class are divided among themselves on the question of tactics, and
whiTeTfily are squai^Tng'ffiS_eapT*aa-
Ists are enjoying the fun, and Incidentally the profits. The, question
will be further discussed in Local 102.
This town had a strong; Socialist vote,
but on th* labor ticket the vote would
be doubled.
To the Editor of the District Ledger:
Dear Sir:—The Ferule-Coal Creek
Excelsior Brass Band gave a concert
on Victoria avenue last Sunday night.
The band had -their new Instruments
out and are certainly beginning to let
the citizens know that they mean business and are going to give only first-
cltM mttaks.
.The music rendered on Sunday
evening was of a very high order and
very appropriate, having regard to
the 'prevailing patriotic feeling. When
the band .played American airs they
were loudly applauded, but when **Rule
Britannia." "God Save ihe King" and
"The iMarselllalse" were rendered, it
seemed to stir the patriotism of the
crowd, who cheered the band repeatedly, evidently appreciating their efforts.
Tlie thought came to me a few days
ago that if the city would only help
the band along a little and give the
people of Fernie a decent amount of
free music, like most other cities in
the west, they would feel more like
voting for other bond issues.     This

Patriotism, as It Is generally understood and practiced, means support of
the acts of the'Government This U
the general way "In which patriotism
Is expressed. One who approves of the
constitution, and the things that are
done Jn the name of the flag, is cried
up as patriotic. Thus, 140 yean ago,
the patriots were those who stood by
the flag of their country, their king,
and the Government which he represented. Then* toriea were the so-
called substantial people of the country. There were other* who went ao
far na to criticise the ait* of the Government. They were such men at Pet-
n!<*k Henry, George Washington,
Thomas Paine and Thomae Jefferson,
and these men were branded by the
lovers ot country as unpatriotic fo-
reenters of discontent.     Yet in the

Mutz'a Cup Seml-Flnal Tie
Coal Creek vs. Hlllcrest—Another
page in the history or the 'Mutz cup
was turned over on Victoria park,
Coal Creek, on Saturday last, when
Coal Creek entertained HlHcreet.
Referee John Moore, of Coleman,
.liandled the game In a very creditable
manner. From the commencement,
Hlllcrest proved dangerous, ibut failed
to piece the superb defense of the
two Macs. After some end to. end
play, in which the CreeTt showed good
condition, Yates managed to get hie
"head to the leather and put the ball
Into the net. Hillcrest pressed, but
-could not equalize. Johnstone failed
to add another-by inches, the ball
striking the upright. The whistle
•sounded half time with Coal Creek 1,
Hillcrest 0.
On resumption, Hillcrest had most
of the play for a time, and made sev-
■eral attempts to score. Then the locals rushed down and from a ball j
placed towards the Hlllcrest goal,
which was returned, .Manning met on
the,rebound and drove into the net.
Some good, hard play on both teams
followed, but 'Hlllcrest failed to find
the net. Shortly before time, Armstrong beat the Hillcrest goalie and
notched the third, Coal Creek .winning by three clear goals.
Several of the Hlllcrest boys stayed
to enjoy the hospitality of the club
members, and and thoroughly enjoyed
_Jhgmge1vy«_irltji  tha gnnri  l-htngg  **m.

one was injured.
News of the protest lodged by Fernie F. C. at the match played on August l«t was received up here on
Wednesday last, and preparations
had to be made for replay on Thurs-
day nlirtit. A lar-ge crowd gathered,
but Fertile failed to put In an appearance, which necessitated Coal Creek
putting a team on the field and -scor
ing, thus claiming their place ln the
semi-final. Where are the sports of
the old days?
The Coal Creek Junior F. C. journeyed to .Michel on Saturday last, to try
conclusions with iMichgl F, C. The
superb goaling of Martin ot Coal
Creek saved the day. Jenkinson of
.Michel was referee. A hard fought
game resulted ln a win for Coal
Creek by a score of 3 goals to 1.

Upon authority of the officers of
the Miners' Union in District 10,
Washington, It may be stated that the
Washington miners may confidently
look forward to a satisfactory joint
agreement. The committees of both
parties, operators and miners, have
been In session since Monday, July 27.
The critical points ot the agreement
were, encountered during the" beginning of the session, and it was then
that very slow progress was made;
since that time, however, If anything,
the Reverse may be said. The miners
are represented by International
Board 'Members Farrington and Harlin, besides the three District officials.
The operators are represented by
Messrs .Brooks, Jones, Morgan, Johnston and Botting.
Some of the young men ln our fair
city are expressing tbe wish that the
B. C, horse may be called upon for
active service In Europe, so that they
would have the opportunity to fight
for their .flag, their country, and their

them to a careful perusal of Mark
Twain's "War Prayer," which follows:
"O, Lord, help us to tear the soldiers
of the foe to bloody shreds with our
shells;.help us to cover their smiling
fields with the .pale forms of their
patriot dead; help us to lay waste
their humble homes with a hurricane
rt_t\ro; J*gJP us t0 wring the hearts,
of their offending widows with unavailing grief. Blast their hopes,
blight their lives, water their way
with tears.   Amen!"

The doctor w§nt on to say that human progress had expanded until with
our present education we were able
to express ourselves in tlie most delicate shades of meaning. He concluded
an Interesting address with an appeal
on behalf of the children, whose welfare was of more Importance than that,
of the multi-millionaire. The doctor
was listened to by an attentive and
appreciative audience, but there were
other phases of freedom that would
have suited the audience better, viz.:
industrial and economic freedom.

The main excitement this last week
has been football. The Frank team
went up to Coleman on Saturday to
play for the .Mutz cup. To start with,
there were only very few to see the
game, so the "rooting" was a minus
quantity; then Coleman's football field
ls none too level for those who are
not accustomed to its hills and valleys; inthis regard it is like al)
grounds in the Pass. When the play
began It was easily seen tliat Frank
team was not at its best and Coleman
was playing all around them till they
got up near the goal, which they
-couldn't go through, toward the end
of the first half, Coleman kicked a
corner, which was neatly headed into
the net. The first half ended 1-0 ln
favor bf Coleman.
During the second half the play was
very dull. Suddenly Frank came back
to what they usually are, and for
about ten minutes had all the .play,
practically. Pat IMarrison scored for
Frank with a fast shot that the Coleman goalie never saw. Though both
sides worked hard for the remainder
of the time, the score finished 1-1.
Several dirty spots appeared in tbe
game, fighting was seen at intervals
throughout and one Coleman man and
one .Frank man were put, on the fence
for the rest of the time by Referee
Wilson. The tie will be played off in
Frank at 6 o'clock tomorrow Wednesday evening.

general manager of the company, was
In town this week and sssurei the

The electrical storm which visited
here on Sunday evening put the Bellevue mine   fans   oilt of   commission
long enough to give the midnight an-d;

Owing to the footwall giving way in
15 chute (which chute haa been the
main source of supply) the effect hss
been the curtailing of the West Canadian output considerably during the
past week, but thanks to ths many
connections made during the last
tew months, between what waa once
thought to be two mms, tbey now
have two chutes open for the transportation of coal by gravitation.
