BRITISH**WORKERS j
CONTINUE  STRIKE
National Walkout of Building Trades
Laborers Is Threatened
LONDON, .May 27—The building
trades workers have again rejected
the terms offered by the masters, by
a large majority. The masons were
the only union to vote for a resumption of work.
The laborers, who have long been
on tlie verge of starvation, are solidly
against the masters and threaten a
national walkout, which would affect
500,000 men, but it is problematical
if they will secure the assent of tbe
provincial unions to their demands.

STORY OF THE  DISASTER
Lethbridge, Alta., May 29.—The
collier Storstad collided with the
Empress of Ireland at 2:30 this morning off Farther Point, on the St. Lawrence, during a dense fog, The big
C. P. R. liner sank within ten minutes,
and of the 1200 passengers aboard,
only 400 are reported saved. There
were many passengers aboard from
the West, and included on the passenger list was Laurence Irving, the
English -actor, who recently finished a
tou r of Canada with his London company. Immediately upon the receipt
of the &. O. S. signal, the Canadian
Coast Guard Steamer Eureka, and the
mail tender Lady Lourne, from Farther Point, hurried to the rescue.
Enrly news of tho disaster was
meagre, barely more than the S. O. S.
call that came from the ship, and the
news of her immediate sinking. The
absenco of wireless calls is now explained by the fact that thq vessel
sunk almost Immediately. At early
dawn boats could be seen trom the
coast hovering over tho spot, but
thpro wna no sign of tho two stenm-
ors. Shortly after 0 o'clock, tbe first
of the rescued, 337 In all, were
brought to RImouskl. The dense fog
nt the time of collision may have
caused some of the lifeboats to pull
out of sight of tbe disaster, and lt ls

•London, May 26.—The passage of
the Home Rule Bill, which ,\vas sent
to the Lords yesterday by a vote of
351 to 274, has been received with
singujar quietness. There were but
few demonstrations, either favorable
or hostile. The general attitude ds
rather critical, anxious aud watchful.
The rejoicings in southern Ireland
were singularly mengre, the main
demonstrations occurring at Cork.
Unionist papers denounce the Government's victory as a mockery, a
sham and a farce. The real interest
now centers in the amending bill and
the attitude of the opposition towards
it. Surface indications are unfavorable.
"There is no visible ground for the
prime minister's hopefulness about an
agreement," declares the Times. "The
situation has hardened and the
ohances of an agreement seem more
remote than six months ago."

CALLS SOUL CURE
MEDICINE OF FUTURE
.DENVER, Colo., -May 23—(Special).
—'New evidence that eleven children
and two women, whose charred bodies
were taken from oue "Death Hole" at
Ludlow were not all suffocated, haa
ibeen unearthed in Trinidad. Preachers and newspaper men who helped
take the mutilated bodies from the
hole are available as witnesses.
If they are called they will testify
that the condition of ihe bodies and
the condition of the lumber-lined cellar indicated -clearly that they did
not all die in the "Death Hole."
They will testify that they are sure
that tbe burned bodies of women and
children were gathered from various
parts of tho colony and' dumped in
one hole. -Many of the children were
so burned that their flesh fell from
their bones when the bodies were removed.
Other evidence may, be produced to
show that a car load of quicklime was
dumped 'at Ludlow the day after the
massacre.
Quicklime has been used following
mine accidents, in southern Colorado
to "destroy all trace of those killed and
many investigators who have been at
Ludlow believe the gunmen destroyed
many victims in that way. Strength
was lent to that beilef when General
Chase ordered Trinidad ministers.and
newspaper men away from the colony
when they sought to poke around the
ruins. Colorado and Southern trainmen know of the quicklime shipment.
Of all tlie rotten methods used toy
the operators and militia to discredit
the striking coal miners, the attempt
of Lieutenant Elliott to defame the
character of the wives and mothers
of Ludlow is the most despicable,
Elliott is a member of, the militia.
He was at the Ludlow massacre. He
was one of those hired assassins who
kept up a merciless fire of machine
under a hypnotic trance, but placeB
them in an environment which creates an appetite for sleep. He invites
them to repose on a bed and think of
nothing. Then he leaves thero. They
gradually succumb to tho "tick tack"
of a metronome. When the. patient is
in a hypnotic slumber, if it is desired
he should ibe cured of excessive Indulgence 1 n alcohol, the psychotherapist suggests to him that he cannot
raise a glass of absinthe to hts lips,
nnd repeats tlie suggestion until the
prohibition is so engraved on his
brain that if ho could he would not do
so. Berlllon is frequently consulted
by those who wish to be cured of tho
unhappy love or passion, and through
hypnotism they obtain release.
Paris, iMay 26— Dr. Berlllon, of
Paris, asserts that psychotherapla or
soul cure is the medicine of the future   He does not put his phtlentalg"'?-^—^^   helpless   women   and

Judge Mndsey and members of his
party will visit the principal cities of

enforcement of the laws of the United
States and Colorado.
The newest thing framed up by the
corporations in Colorado is the Law

e.itrenrhed on the strikers' side. One
of the women calmly announced tnat
the miners had purchased five machin guns and had them shipped into
fhe state since the arrival of the federal troops. This statement illustrates how absurdly -the operators'
tools will lie to discredit the miners.
At th« same meeting Captain W. C.
Danks is reported to have said that
"if tlie residents of Ludlow tent colony had been American citizens they
would have gone back to work on request of the militia." The miners
have always claimed that the Colorado National guard was sent to
Southern Colorado to break the strike
and not to preserve the peace. -Tills

Strikes, strikes—nothing but strikes
all over this country and in other
countries. It is tbe order of the day.
What does it mean? It' means that the
working class is at last beginning to
awaken from its slumber. A new
spirit has taken .hold of those who toil
'but have not. Those who have but toil
not do not understand the significance
of the situation. And so they are angry and desperate and confused and
afraid.
"What is the ■world coming to that
.the lower class should bave lost
their humility? They no longer ac-
quiese in the general plan of things.
They are dissatisfied with wages and
hours of labor and the slate of life
which God in His infinite wisdom 'has
decreed should be theirs, and with
which they have been satisfied 'from
the beginning. Even the government
of the masters, used to keep the mob
in subjection, no longer receives the
respect of the (working class. Nor do
the clubs of the .police, the rifles of
the militiamen or tlie jail strike'terror .into their hearts. Even the old
patriotism no longer has any effect.
Wave a flag before a crowd of striking workers, and they will cheer and
smile a /wise, slow smile. Ask them to
go back to their tasks in the name,
of this flag, and they will laugh outright at your stupidity. You may
even trot out your false God, put
words Into 'his mouth of gold and
greed and superstition—awfully terrifying words—and the workers will
simply scorn you, and 'walk away.
Can you not see that times have
changed, and that with the changed
times tlie psychology, of the people
i.i'.s changed too?
A revolution has taken place in the
minds of .the people, just as a revolution has taken place In machinery
and , methods of producing wealth.
And the one revolution is co-related
to the. other.
The changed spirit as expressed in
universal strikes and general discontent is simply .the growing opposition
to private ownership of public necessities. Contempt for Ideas that were
once considered sacred is due to the
same thing.
The idea .that those who work hardest should have least and vice versa
ao. longer is tolerated. To be meek
aud bumble and poor is no longer
considered a virtue. That there is
something materially wrong with a
system under which more highly de-
-vetoped—and—swifter--.machinery,—e*
well as more efficient methods of production, creates greafer hardships
upon those 'who operate the machinery cannot but -be observed, and even
the tolling masses have observed this.
Labor has awakened. When it has
thoroughly shaken off the effects of
Its long slumber, it will take complete
posBesBton of that which has enslaved
lt (the machinery of production), and
instead of being slaves of the machines and the owners of the machines, the maohlnes will be enslaved
to the ond that human happiness -will
oe served,
This is the meaning of strikes. The
workers are telling the masters to
get off their backs, and they mean
whnt they say. If the masters refuse
to listen, and Jn consequence aw
thrown off bodily, It will be their own
fault. Listen to what the workers
say:
Let us remind.you, gentlemen, masters and -captains of industry, that we,-
the workers, who bear the burdenB of
the world; we, without whose labor
society could not. exist for a single
day; we, who with brains and -muscles toll to feed and clothe and house
tho world, will not always crouch
upon our knees ond permit you to
ride on our backs.
Today you havo the advantage.
Vou are well fed. you are warm, you
own the broad and the meat, the
cotton and wool, tho coal and Iron, the
copper, gold and silvor. You claim
nil the land, all the mines, all the
forests, all the machinery and nil the
money.
You own everything,
When It becomes necessary for you
tn wiijro war In. order to find new
commercial markets for tlie surplus
we produce, you call upon us, wage
slaves, to do your tigbtlng.
You have built churches, colleges
and libraries with the wealth we produced. You have employed preach'
ers to teach us to be contented with
morality, the art and ideals of your
class, .we submit our own political
economy, scienco, philosophy, law,
morality*, art aud ideals. Against the
present we ^ffer the future. '
You put labor and capital-tt^Jott the
same basis. You -speak of the "hog
market" and the "labor market" in
the same terms. We want no more of
it! Too long have we, with minds,
'hearts and flesh that can suffer, been
treated with less -con-sideraition than
money. The time has come when
•the welfare of our families—imeu,
women and children—must be considered.paramount to all that money
means.
Our women, and children need food,
clothing, shelter and education, and
wo are going to secure those things
for thom upon  our own  terms—the
terms, of labor. ' We create these
-things; that ds why we insist upon our
own terms.
It is' upon our shoulders, we workingmen, that the world rests.
And remember, we" are many—iwe
are in the majority^ We can shake
you off our ba.cks. You only appear
great because we are on our knees.
We are going to arise. AVe have
stood your system bf robbery too long
already.
We are going to establish the Cooperative Commonwealth, a system of
the collective ownership of the means
of life, a system in which robbery will
be abolished.
• You, gentlemen, masters and captains of Industry—
Get off our backs!-—New York Coll.
To the Patriots
of Colorado
(Rocky Mountain News)
'Colorado needs patriotism as nev£r,
before.
In the most biting words delivered
to any governor of- any state within
modern times, President Wilson has
rebuked Ellas ijtf. Amnions, the unfor-
innate governor of this state. Said
the president;
"I CANNOT CONCEIVE THAT
THE STATE IS WILLING TO FOkE-
GO HER SOVEREIGNTY OR TO
THROW HERSELF ENTIRELY UPON .THE GOVERNMENT OF THE
UNITED STATES, AND I AM QUITE
CLEAR THAT SHE HAS NO CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHT TO DO SO
WHEN IT IS WITHIN THE POWEK
OF HER LEGISLATURE TO TAKE
EFFECTIVE ACTION." /
Colorado is not willing to forego her
sovereignty. Colorado does not want
to throw herself entirely upon, the
government of the United States. Colorado knows what it was within the
power of her legislature to tak$ effective action. Colorado has been spurned an-di betrayed by her elected protectors. iPii'blic welfare has-been forgotten; public interest 'has 'been for-
saken.
A committee on mediation bas not
ibeen-provldad-for;-and-none-ha&-heen-
appointed. .Think of the inutterable
weakness of such conduct! Think of
its stupidity!    ,
TJie 'technicality the governor availed himself of In his telegram to President Wilson is this: A bill was
passed authorizing tbe appointment of
a committee of six to "examine into,
investigate, and report" on the coal
strike. The committee was first ordered to report to tbe general assembly at the regular session in January,
1915, .Later It was empowered to report to the governor or,to tlie attorney general, if it was prepared to pronounce before the general session
Not one word about mediation is
contained In the entire resolution. Tbe
committee is given no power to mediate. They may Investigate, examine
and report, -and that Is all. This strike
has been investigated to death. One
great report is outstanding,
the work of the congressional committee. The state doesn't need any
more inquiries. What it wants is action.
A committee of good citizens left
for Washington Inst night. Thoy go
to present the caso of the people of
'Colorado. They go to tell the truth
about tbo strike. Tb all others who
'honor tho good name or their state,

iwho desire prosperity for all the.ipeo
4?le, .who desire a return of dignity,
-we"appeal. Use your Influence with
(President Wilson and with your delegation in congress. Write letters.-
Send telegrams. Go to Washington if
you can. Tell the truth as you know
lt and demand peace.
After the futile session of the legislature, there is only one way of peace.
That-is through the appointment of a
federal arbitration commission. President Wilson has the Interest of the
whole country at heart, and we,.believe that he will appoint a.commission. He can do so without entangling the Southern doctrine ot states'
rights, for the reason that there exists an urgepit military necessity, the
danger of a foreign war.
Theodore Roosevelt faced a similar
situation during th& anthracite strike.
The coal operators in Pennsylvania
were as willing to fight to the last
ditch there as they are here.
A threat to urge a law upon congress which would authorize the federal operation of. coal mines was the
final word which brought even "Divine Right" Baer and -Baer's financial
•master to terms. Elihu Root carried
a message to J. P. Morgan. Roosevelt
gavo (Morgan twenty-four hours' to
agTeor'to-mpbltmioH? HeT^feearnK"
similar Intimation on the part of the
president may prove potent in the
present crisis.
Without fedora! arbitration the situation will become Intolerable. Colorado Is filled with two camps of men
and women -who hate eaeb other. A
great state cannot be built on bitterness. Germany 'became a world (power
-when the men began to love their
common country. Geographical lines
were forgotten In the larger patriotism. So all good citizens of'tbls state,
regardless of class, should unlto.for
tbe oommon good. Such union 1$ im--
possible while' class lines become
doily more sharply defined: while
there is a gaping wound In the state.
The development of Colorado's inherent possibilities cannot come until
once for all these wars In the coal
fields have ceased.
(That la j, Colorado must have peace. It must
have a law and order based on Justice,
We cannot build prosperity by arson
and killing. We must reason things
out. We must bold vigorously to the
vaunted keystone of American civilization, which la equality of all before
the law. We must stand by the loftiest principle which has yet evolved,
and that l» the frle'ndly brotherhood
of men, the fraternity of the world.

"Ihaveuseir'Fruit-a-tives" for Indigestion and Constipation with most
excellent results, and tbey continue to
be my only medicine. I am highly
pleased with "Fruit-a-tives'' and am
not ashamed to have the facts published
to the world, --When I first started,
about six years ago, to use them, I took
four for a dose, but I cured myself of
the above ' troubles and gradually
reduced the dose to one tablet at night.
Before taking "Fruit-a-tives" I took
salts.and other pills but tbe treatment
was too harsh.   I thought I miglit/-jfe*
well suffer from the disease as from
these treatments.
Finally, I saw,"Fruit-a-tives" adver-
tised with a letter in which'someone-'
recommended them very,highly, so I
tried them. The results were more than
satisfactory and I have no hesitation in
recommending them tb any other person.
They have done me a-world of good. I
get satisfaction from them, and that is

What Does War Settle?
An Inquiry Into the history of nations reveals, among other things, tbe
fact that there Is lust one kind or a
war that settles tbe question for
which it was -declared, When the
old Conquerors set out upon wars of
conquest, thoy usually accomplished
their alms, or got soundly thrashed

Let us be grateful for tbe Ulster
cfisis as a "God-send" to our antl-
militarist causes .Jt bas done two
greai things for pacificism. It bas
brougbt into clear relief the intmlc-
ableness of militarism and democracy,
and It has shattered tbe illusion tbat
tbe Army is reliaible as a non-partisan
servant and guardian of tbe -State.
Put for the action ot the Tories in
raising a rebel army ln Ulster and
the doubt as to loyalty of tbe King's
-officers and troops, there would have
been'no Ulster crisis at all; tbe authority of 'Parliament would never
bave been in question.
Militarism did not come into 'being
as a means or method of democracy,
but as ft-weapon of conquest and class
repression.    It  has survived   under
democracy chiefly because It bas succeeded In attaching itself to the state
as a glorified warden of peace within
and safety without the gates.   Tbe
seeming willingness of tbe military
Iiower. to submit Itself absolutely to
the sovereignty of Parliament and to
face any duty or danger in the Interests of .t*ht> nation, hns socurod for it
a position In the confidence nnd vanity of the nation which hereto has
been unchangeable.   Truo, there have j
been occasions when the Army has
been used as a rod to beat down pop- j
nlar agitation, and llberty-lovlng men j
have felt that to harbor a huge army 1
In the State was like keeping an al* {
leged tame tiger In one's backyard.
Out tbe Army hae fnr so long been on]
Its best behavior when on home nnr- \
vice, and bas proved so unqwwtlon- j
ably faithful to. the constituted a-u-j
thortty, that It* «^»<vlut<? political tm-*
partiality and loyalty to tho Executive ]
Ciovernment was held to be beyond'
doubt.
8ucb has been tbe illusion—one of
the many Illusions which have sustained the prestige of mtlltsrtim In
tbe civilised world. Only by one they
go. dissolved In tbe light of our Democratic Day.'—the Illusion that military conquest benefits the country
that conquers; tbat tbe defeat of a
nation In wa*^ means Hi political extinction; that fighting natlona survive
whereas unarmed or pacific nations
perish; that the war press tad ansa*

A strong address on this subject was
given on Monday night at the 'Methodist Church by Rev. Hugh Dobson, of
Regina. 'While nothing so very novei
was said, the treatment of a much discussed theme waa fresh and interesting. It showed that the churches are
facing the grave questions of the day
in a spirit of frank and honest inquiry and are not afraid to hear the
truth, even if it means severe condemnation for the organizations themselves.
■The speaker, who is a young man
still in his early thirties, is fully competent to discuss these issues, as he
has prepared himself by, special study,
travel and observation to deal with
the larger and more difficult problems
of the day. He is social service Secretary of the Methodist Church, with
headquarters in Regina. Mr. Dobson
said in part:
Social problems are the direct product of the industrial conditions of the
time, just as society Itself Is dependent
on the •worker. Hence the revolution
in conditions of life since the advent
of modern   machinery'  has   affects

the growth of large cities and concentration of the papulation In IniJustrinJ

has been a feature   of  our western
hemisphere and the social conditions
wo find today are the necessary   result of this aspect of industrialism.
Go into any of our cities today end one
can see that the   wage   Bcale has.  a
large determining influence as to the
locality of the homes of the different
classes of people.   One doesn't (Find a

determines the social    and   .cultural
conditions of that part.   The death

THE SACRIFICE
Tlio minors of Colorado, their wives and their
i-liildron liiivi' been sacrificed for the emancipation
of their class.. Tliey are not the only sacrifice that
labor has offered, and there will he others.
Few of us care to admit this; we would much
rather apologize or explain, generally permitting
our explanations lo follow along some impossible
cold-blooded, scientific lines, or ascribing this condition of affairs to the ignorance of the worker.
Every age and every chapter of history records
some almost insane heroism on the part of reformers and their followers; every cause has demanded
its roll of martyrs. The scientific philosopher will
explain this and show by most profound argument
that such sacrifice might have'been avoided had the
individuals been in possession of the knoAvledge
that the pedantic philosopher will assure us he possesses. The trouble with most individuals of this
class is that, the fail to realize the position of the
worker; education and intelligence are fine things,
bufoffer a hungry .man a library of philosophy, and
a meal ticket, and see which he wants.
There is one thing for which we may be very
thankful, and that is the gradual disappearance of
that smug, conceited, half-baked philosopher,
whose vaporings and parrot philosophy nauseates
every well-balanced and thinking individual. You
bave heard these philosophers and thinkers (?)"
prate about their immuuity from arrest and credit
their knowledge with being responsible for same.
According to such reasoning all the worker has to
do is to digest a particular brand and quantity of
philosophy and bis future is secured.   Fortunately.
_n«j.nm.i*«l,pj *l-iic*._/il*aec._i\f— r»lilt.nBnnlin»_W.'_iHi_llifiln«l-!****-
rot phrases and inane vaporings is going, and going
rapidly
The men who have beeu shot and /suffered im-
ffisonnient have not died or suffered in vain. All
thc eloquence of ever/ orator known Hnd unknown
could ncvei* have accomplished what tlieir actions
have. Tin; worker has need of action, nnd will
require same until humanity has advaiw-vd to wuch
:i perfect stage of civilization that to wish its desires is ti) see thom wcnmplisslied. Uul this i.s ion
)nr/y a prol'ubility to call for any voirmoiil.
The problem for tlio worker today, however, is
how far can we mitigate these sacrifices, and still
conduct our struggle for a betterment? How far
can we preserve those innocent children and their
mothers from a repetition of Colorado's orgie?
Organized labor has to handle this question today;
we ennnot wait for the morrow; we must live if wc
would figld.
Striking is nothing more or less than inaction—
marking time; waiting on the- other fellow to
move; in fact, wc work hard for two or four years
to amass enough to enable us to strike hard for a
l'.-v w»>fks! Logically there is nothing more foul-
n!i lh a n a strike—nnd yet we know Ihey are unavoidable. The strike is practically I lie only
ucapon labor has lelt to fight capital, nml as a
weapon, it is becoming every day more ineffective.
The question one will naturally tisk is. "What is
the worker lo do? Is lie to meekly submit t" To
thi* uu omphatie No! lie cannot submit; he can-
not be content; he cannot cease to struggle. Hnt
U.i, iS.i.v will iimi iiiUrtl tuiiif ulitu iu.iit.id ul" .-.Ht'mg
around waiting for our master* to move, we shall
move,
of all crimes, and that waiting and idling is useless
lost faith in labor we \vi-\l despair,-but as we have
not lost hope for the future, must affirm that labor
can do again what they have done before. Our
masters have used our brawn and brains to help
defeat ns, therefore, it,is nearly time we used these
faculties to help ourselves.
"\\re should be no more content with our present
method of striking than with our present conditions
of laboring. If we are to fight let us use the latest
and most approved weapons; you do not expect an
army armed witb muzzle loaders to defeat an army
equipped with the latest high-power magazine rifle.
The possessors of the antiquated weapon will be
shot, down whilo loading tlieir rifles. And that is
what has happened to you—you take several years
to load your exchequer—you fire the contents in a
few weeks; you return to work to charge up again.
And so the merry game goes on.
Let us learn to employ our striking forces—let
us. see how far the army wc control can bc used.
True, an awful howl would go up did we suggest
that the worker start organizinga police force, or
that they spend a little time every week end practising at the butts' this would be inciting to
rebellion (according to some individuals) although if you are an. Orangeman or Nationalist this
is patriotism. However, the worker might learn a
useful lesson from Ihe attitude of Ulster, and if
he docs wc shall hoar of the other side making sacrifices, not'the worker.

NOTICE
To the Members of District 18, ,U. M. W. of A.'; .
Greeting: . '  .
The tellers' report was, a matter of consideration
at the Board meeting held in Fernie on Saturday,
May ietlijand we beg to advise you that the Board,
-were'very dissatisfied with the general results froin
the preferential ballot. The'small percentage of.
the membership who availed themselves of the opportunity of this new system of electing ""officers,
together with the many spoiled ballots, warranted
your Board in taking the action which the enclosed resolutions fully explain. .
We would therefore kindly request that your Local take steps to ascertain what are their wishes in
"the matter' bf a re-election. J
With reference to the appointment ol the two
delegates to the Rocky Mountain Convention, your
Board were compelled to take immediate action in
view of the short time between the meeting and
(he date of convention. . "
J. E. SMITH, Chairman.
A. J. CARTER, Sec.-Treas.
THE SCHOOL QUESTION IN ANNEX
The necessity for increased school accommodation in the Annex has been recognized for some
time past and thc school trustees have reminded
the Council from time to time of this urgency.
The Annex is a very populous portion of the
town and the school accommodation afforded by
the present four-room frame structure is not only
totally inadequate but positively unsuited for the
proposed alterations and addition.
, The trustees, if they are good custodians of
public'interests, must look to the future; tMy must
not shirk an expenditure for public benefit even if
their action is likely to be unpopular and result
in a defeat at the next election. A permanent
eight-room brick structure is needed, fitted with
every modern hygienic convenience, and if the
trustees insist upon this and do the work as thoroughly as they have the Central School, then the
ratepayers will have something to thank them for.
To make an addition to the present frame building would mean considerable expense, witli very
unsatisfactory results both from an -hygienic and
economic viewpoint. To complete an eight-room
brick school it will be necessary to raise $20,000
on debentures," but the trustees were hoping to
build the structure and partly finish four lower
Resolutions
(1) Iu view of the complications arising out of
the Tellers' Report this Board feel justified in declaring the election of delegates' to the Rocky
Mountain Convention, and the Trades and Labor
Congress, null and void.
(2) That D. Rees and H. Elmer be appointed
delegates to attend the Rocky Mountain Convention on the 25th of May.
, . That a circular be sent to the Locals-pointing out the results of the recent election and the
action of this Board meeting, and requesting them
io declare whether they are desirous of a re-election or whether W. Graham, the candidate who received the highest number of votes, shall be duly
appointed delegate to the Trades and Labor Congress.
romnKriPffvin|rtnTTiWTipiBtiOTrorT:TTTip^
until next year. Whether this is the best policy or
not we do not venture to say, but the schooling for
children is important and the Council and trustees
should co-operate at once and see that our future
citizens receive what is the birthright of every
child—a thorough education.
Wo feel confident that thc ratepayers will not
misjudge the action of those in charge if they adopt
what is the sanest and most economical method of
handling this question.
A wise content his even soul secured,
Hy want not shaken, nor by wealth allured.
(Smith.)
The composer of the above hit off the meaning of
"content" (where it exists)'as neatly as any phiU
osopher, with one possible objection, i. c., to tho
"even soul," The exigencies of modern business
mothods do not tend to an "even soul" or even loin-
perainent. while thoro are very fow wlio are not.
by "want shaken." Tho prosont allurement nfter
wealth is in the shape of oil stock, and ovon a

the unctuous greasy fluid.

result of several miners missing cars,

Hosmer journeyed to Michel on Saturday last to meet Corbin in a league
fixture; full of confidence in their
ability to bring home the bacon, but
Corbin's blue jerseyed, white nickered
soccer artists were far too swift and
sudden, and slipped It all over us, to
the tune of five to one. We have no
excuses to offer, in fact, some of us
thought we'd made a mistake and got
on Aston Villa's ground. Corbin gave
us a splendid exhibition of football,
their speed and combination being noticeable features. Hosmer, while struggling gamely to the last, were never
in the hunt, but we take consolation
from the fact that there will be others.

"The only thing we ask of a recruit
is that he pass a physical examination." So said Col. George Lee. talking to a house committee of inquiry,
comprising Representatives Leftwich,
Turnbull .and Persons.
Legislators were astounded Friday
to hear tliat members of the Colorado
National Guard were recruited from
among the lowest class—even penl-
tentiary sweepings—because the only
requirement is physical fitness. Aliens
may be recruited by militia officers.
It Is not necessary for a recuit to be
a citizen of Colorado. His moral character is never questioned. His record
and fitness io use authority without
abusing it are never looked into.
"Have you Uie right to arbitrarily
refuse admission to any mau to join
the National Guard?" legislators asked General "Czar" Chase.
"We have the right," admitted
Chase.
"Were there any men enlisted in
the militia who were imported gunmen from West Virginia, or Baldwin-
Feltz men?" Chaes was asked.-
"It, may be possible that- there
•were," growled Chase, defiant to the
last.
Chase then admitted that he had
not disarmed all mine guards when he
first went to fche coal field. "I disarmed the strikers and not the mine
guards at Valdez and Segundo," said
Chase, while legislators gasped their
astonishment.
"Do you consider it Just or legal to
refuse payment to mine guards, enlisted in the militia, for their services
in the mllltla?" the legislators asked
Chase.
"No, Bir, it is neither just nor legal,"
shouted Chase, who wants taxpayers'
money to pay gunmen and guards for
shooting women and children at Ludlow.

Things are still pretty quiet in Coal-'
liurst, the mine working just oh.ee in
a while to keep the rust off the'big
wheel. Two days i,n succession, would
go hard with ii» just now and less
than -five Sundays in one week would
be practically useless.
A meeting, was held In the Pacific
Hotel on ^lay 20th lor the purpose of
forming a football club, About twenty turned up to have a Jittle to say
towards thia and after quite a ibit of
discussion a club was formed and officers appointed. A .practice match
was llxed forVictorla Day and Secretary Thomas Adams instructed' to ar-
range matches with other teams, also
to try and get the club entered into
something iwlth a cup to It around
Lethbridge.
John Byffon was* a visitor tn Coalhurst from Coleman on Victoria Day.
We are pleased, tb see Jock looking
iwell'and shall be pleased' to see him
any time.
Vice President Wm. Graham' and
Board .Member Larson, of Lethbridge,
were In Coalhurst on Thursday, May
21st, taking up grievances with the
company:" Some were settled' satisfactorily but the one the kick was
about had to go to the independent
chairman for a decision.
Lodge 105 I. O.O. F. had a social
evening May 25th in the school. Quite
a number of Oddfellows, their wives
and sweethearts turned out to enjoy
the good feeling of fraternity. - We
understand the songs, stump speeches, etc., were fine, but the dance iwas
a "kin yer do it" affair right from.the
start.
• The .practice match of the football
clinb was played May »25th ln the
morning. Very little could be chosen
between the two teams .picked, the
wind !pjaying the most football 'all
through and no goals being soored~!by
either -side. We understand anoitner
game twill be played to give the committee an Idea as to the'most promising players. ^

BEAVER MINE8 NOTES      ♦
.
i
It is sometimes marvelous how the
omission of a phrase or lino will so
alter the .meaning ot a paragraph aa
to give tho reader an Impression
that was never Intended by the writer, fn last week's Beaver notes' the
second paragraph should have read:
"Joe Smith, barber and pool parlor
manager, paid a visit to Coleman' last
week (and returned to Beaver on Friday), but finding tbe placo practically
dead he packed IiIb grips and left on
Tuesday In hopes of finding a orib
where cash was more plentiful," Owing to the words In brackets being
omitted, readers got the Impression
| that Coleman was dead—not Beaver—
and this got the scribe, Instead of the
printer's devil, into trouble with the
Colemanites. But although Beaver-Is
dead at present, tlio day of Its resurrection Is not far distant.
For quite a .while a few of the
"Iniuts" have been wlso to,tho fact
that oil and get ore to be found in
abundance In close proximity to Baa-
ver IMIncs, tmt the location of the In-
Umnmablo lubricant is only Known tu
a few. It would not.suit our purpose,
however, to create a panto by starting
an oil crsse In the locality at. present,
as those in the knew want all their
friends to get In dn thro ground floor
beforo the rush commences. The
scum of oil In certain wells In the
distriot gavo experts the cue as to the
Oxaet spots where the hidden treasure lay concealed awaiting the drill
to start the gusher.
For the past week a woll known
auto ear has been busy plying between 'Denver and the neighboring
towns, making mysterious calls upon
goldbugs, combine mngnntes, explorers snd exploiters, and the movements of the said ear should be closely watched during the next week, but

THE  PRIVATE ARMY
vu
VILLA'S HOME-MADE MONEY
The private army   is   utterly   un-
American and utterly out'of place in
the twentieth century. There *ls> no
(-legitimate need for maintaining It. If
there is trouble keeping the peace, the
county authorities may appeal Xo the
state, and the state, if unable to perform the task, is assured the help of
the 'Federal Government.
Pretty nearly always iit is the armed
guard, the "private army, that does the
dirty work at the critical point. It
was so at Houghton; it was so in.Ithe
earlier Colorado and Utah iware; it is
so in the .present Colorado war, If the
best authenticated reports may he believed. The private army is the insll-
itution that should he abolisshed.
There is quite enough of feudalism's
flavor in this country now , without
the deliberate organization of mercenaries to suppress whole communities,
Ito obscure and becloud issues, to make
private wars where waYfare serves the
purpose of private interests.
All the way from Homestead, iu
1892, down to Colorado today, it has
been the same story. It was reported
from West Virginia last year, and was
one of -the most disgraceful chapters
in the labor history of the country.
It has heen read In the accounts of
Pennsylvania's mining warfares; It
was the whole basic story of the horrors of Ziegler, 111., a few years ago.
It was the crux of (he Western Federation of Miners' sitrugg-le; -probe almost
every one of tlie disgraceful outbursts
cf capital-labor violence, and the Hessian guard -will -be found.
If the business of organizing, hiring
and using armed forces were made
treason, there would very presently he-
Come a day in which such horrors as
Colorado presents today would be unknown.—Edilorial from the Washington Times.

When Villa proclaimed himself Military Governor of the State of Chihuahua he began the extraordinary experiment —i extraordinary because he
knew nothing about-it—of creating a
government for 400,000 people out ol (foundations..
hia own head. It has often been &aid
that Vllla^ succeeded because he had
educated advisers. As a matter of
fact he was almost alone. What advisers he bad spent most of their time
answering his eager questions and
doing what he told them.
•There was the financial question.
It came to Villa in this way. He noticed all of a sudden that there was
no money in circulation. Tbe farmers
who produced meat and vegetables
refused to come Into the city markets
any more because no one had any
money to -buy from them. .The truth

manufacturing centre, and the few
factories there having closed down,
there was nothing which could be exchanged for food. So, like a blight,
the paralysis of the production of food
began at the town populations. I remember hearing vaguely of several
highly elaborate plans for the relief of
this condition put forward hy Villa's
advisers. He himself said, "Why, if
all they need is money, let's print
some." So they Inked up the printing
press In the basement of the Governor's palace and ran off 2,000,000 pesos
on strong iwper, with Villa's name
printed across the middle In largelet-
tcrs.
This first issue of currency .was
guaranteed by absolutely nothing but
the name of Francisco Villa. It waa
Issued chiefly to revive the petty commerce of the State so thst the poor
people could get food. And
