Tbe weather -has favored Fernie
this ye&r for aU i celebrations, and
Wednesday wae voted by 'all ideal.
Beautifully, bright and sunny
with enough breeze stirring to keep
the «ir cool, tbere waa only one objection*, and that, the dust. The
(Weather, however, can scarcely be
blamed for the dust clotads that from
time to time obscured the road to
the park and made traveling for women with buggies and little children
both unpleasant and dangerous.
Oni several occasions we noticed Ut- •
tie children bad narrow escapes from |
the road bogs, "who, sweating, raving
and cursing, in their desire to grab
-every cent possible, tore up and down
the1 road in. frenzied haste. Thle is,a
moat abominable ead disgusting atate
of, affairs, aad was the only, feature
that marred the day's .pleasure for
many who visited tbe park. No doubt
tbere are ma-ay who appreciate the
convenience of riding to tbe park
from the city, but'the road was never
built to be hogged ln the manner It
waa on Wed-neaday, and in' future pedestrians would be conferring a -boon
upon society If tbey took (he
matter of checking this in their
own hands. It is, however, the
duty of the authorities to aee that
there is no repetition of this business
and possibly the mayor or police
commissioners will, in spite of the'culprit's position, give this matter at
tentdon.
(The midnight train and also the
10:34 .passenger brought a number in
from the east, while the west contingent arrived on the early , morning
train. The crowd did not appear to be
ao great as on- May lBt, but should
estimate that quite 2500 people -were
present on the grounds at one time.
The Athletic Association's receipts
from the gate were about $650.
Of the sports it may be said that
they were the most successful ever

The Boxing Contest
:Tbe .preliminary that preceded the
main event was between Kid Brown
of Great Falls, •Montana, and Young
Dunlap of Blairmore. This was u
pretty three round bout, and both boy£
dSd some clever boxing, the last
rqund being a rare mill, and eliciting
applause from the audience.
Joe Uvanni entered the ring at 9:25
for tbe-main event, and Billy Weeks
appeared about twelve minutes later.
George O'Brien, Fernie, acted as official referee, and in introducing the
contestants, stated1 that the bout waB
to decide tbe middleweight champion-
snip of Canada, and also stated that
■Dick 'Marshall, who appeared in the
ring, was ready to box the winner.
The boys got started shortly before 10
o'clock, and the fight lasted six minutes. From the opening of the first
round it was apparent to all that
Weeks was out for business. Leading
with a heavy left to the body, he
forced* Uvanni to clinch , but soon
broke. Uvanni drove left to face, but
blow lacked steam, while \Veek3
came back witb a vicious upper cut
that was blocked by Uvanni, but uot
before Weeks had landed right. The
latter was tbe fastest and cleverest of
ihe two, while he bad a knockout in
either hand. Uvanni went down after
two mlhutes fighting , but was quickly
on his feet again,- Weeks rushed hia
™ian-to-™6-rop€B;T3ut"COuluTiot'i1n1snr
A heavy exchange took place, and
Uvanni received a heavy left haude",
which knocked him down for the second'time, and no doubt the/call of
time saved what would otherwise have
been a one round fight Uvanni came
back for the second round looking
none too good, and was quickly iu difficulties. He tried 'to, hang on, bul
Weeks avoided' these" tactics and
held his man off. placing blow after
blow under the ribs and over tho
heart. A heavy right haader caused
the Italian, to swing and as he fame
back, Weeks landed the knockout, a
straight solar plexus punch. Uvanni
went down and a shout was mado ror
a foul, but the referee counted him
out, and gave the fight to Weeks.

as being more prevalent in this direction.

SARAYBVO, Bosnia, June 28—Archduke Francis Ferdinand, heir to the
Austria-Hungarian throne, and the
Princess of Hohenburg, his morganatic
wife, were shot dead in the main street
of the Bosnian capital by a student today, <while they were making an apparently triumphant progress through
iiie ctty on their annual vtalt to the
annexed provinces. of Bosnia and
iH-erzegovdnia.
The archduke was hit full in the
face and the princess was shot through,
the abdomen and throat. The wounds
proved fatal in a few minutes after
reaching the -paJace.
Those responsible for the assassination took care that it should prove ef-
.-tsciive, as there were two assaillants,
the first armed witb a bomb and the
latter with a revolver. The bomb was
thrown at the royal automobile aa it
was 'proceeding to.the town ball, where
a reception waa to be held, but the
archduke saw the deadly missle coming and warded it off with his arm.
It fell outside the car and exploded,
slightly wounding two aide-de-oamps
in a second car and half a dozen spectators.
It waa on ttite return of the procession that the tragedy was added' to the
long llet of those tbat have darkened
the pages of the recent history of the
Hapsburgs. When the royal automobile readhed a prominent point In ihe
route to the palace an eighth grade
student, Gavrio Prinzlp, sprang out of
tbe crowd and ipoured a fusllade of
bullets trom an automatic pistol at
the archduke and princess and both
fell mortally wounded.
'Prtnzlp.and a fellow conspirator, a
compositor from Treblnjen, named
Gabrivonic-s, barely escaped lynching
by the infuriated spectators and were
finally seized by tbe police, who afforded them protection. Both men are
natives of the annexed province of
Uerzegovinla.
Tbe first attempt against the archduke occurred juat outside the girls'
high school. Tbe archduke's cars bad
restarted after a brief pause for an
inspection of the building, when Gab-
rinovlcs hurled the bomb. This was
so successfully warded off by tbe
archduke that it fedl beneath tbe following car, the occupants of which,

Inquest on
George Lyons
Exactly one mouth to the day, tbe
body of George Lyons, drowned in
the Elk, was recovered, and on iMonday evening a jury sat to consider the
cause of death. There has been a
deal of comment over the accident,
and the action of Aldorman Robi-
chaud, who it ls alleged countermanded the instructions of the city engineer (Wm. Ramsey). While the jury
were of the opinion that the Alderman may have acted ln what he considered the best interests of the city,
nevertheless tbey saw fit to censue
his action, and did so in very plain
language. Th e evidence painly
showed that hod the instructions of
tbe city engineer been carried out
there is every probability tbat tbe accident would have been avoided.
The Inquest was opened by Coroner
Wilkes at tbe Provincial courthouse
on Friday night, when, after viewing
the >body the proceedings were adjourned until 'Monday night. The
following were selected to serve on
the jury: Geo. 'Barton (foreman), J.
B. Marsham, Wm. McGIaddrey, W. A.
Worthington, George -Bowen, James
Woods.     ,
Fred G. Perry acted as court
court stenographer. ■
The first witness, A. D. McDonald,
teamster ln the fire department',
sworn, stated that he was present at
the time the body was pulled out of
the water, and Identified the body as
that of George Lyons. Questioned as
to how he knew that this was the deceased, MoDonald stated that he recognized the body by certain teeth,
the color of hair, shape of bead and a
watch that was found in the overalls.
The next witness, William Ramsay,
city engineer, sworn, stated that be
bad given instructions that the stumps
be placed about 30 feet back from tbe
river, and that when he gave these instructions he had in view -the possi.
bility that they -might be used as a
background for a cribbing at somo
later date. He did not give any instructions that the stumps were to
be dumped into the ' river, neither
could he swear that other Instructions
wnro given. Ho was in charge of the
JKork**.
Jlr. Palmer then made the re-quc-st for the fol
lowing documents to bc produced:

Favorites In England
Personally the archduke and bis
wife were almost as great, favorites In
England as •they were in German
court circles. They were frequent
visitors in Louden, generally coming
incognito because of the court etiquette -whlg|i£j*rj**»Yentcd the duchess
1-rdiit being omeially recognized for
the reason that she was not ot royal
blood.
Last year the archduke and the
duchess visited King George and
Queen Mary at Windsor and were
shown every possible attention.
The King has ordered oourt mourning for a week. -The state ball, which
was to have taken place tomorrow, has
been postponed.
Tho archduke's successor as heir to
the throne, Archduke Charles Francis,
ls likewise a poutar figure in England and other countries. He represented Austria at the coronation ot
King George as Archduke Francis
Ferdinand would not attend because
his wife could not take her place by
his side.
In official London tbe opinion seems
to prevail that the crime could not be
Attributed to any political intrigue, -but

THE   GODCHILD
From the Russian of Leo Tolstoy, Translated by
Theresa S. and Leon A.Malklel.
A son was bom to a poor 'peasant.
Tbe peasant was very Gappy and
asked his neighbor to be godfather
to the new horn child. But the neigh-
-bor was not pleased- with the thought
of being godfather to a poor boy and
refused to come. One after the other
tbe 'poor peasant visited every* house
in he village, but every one of the
villagers refused.
Anxious to have his son baptized,
the poor peasant decided to try his
iuck in a neighboring village. On his
way there he met a stranger.
"Good day,   my   good   man,"   the
stranger greeted him.    "Whither are \
you bound?"

through the open fields, when he met
a stranger.
"Good afternoon to you, my dear
boy," said -the stranger, "Where are
you going in the open fields?"
"I am .going to look ior -my godfather, for I have never seen him yet,
though I have grown to be a big boy,
I" bave made up my mmd to walk until
I find him."    ,
"I am your godfather," the stranger
informed him.
"Oh, I'm .so glad I have met you,"
exclaimed the boy, then added, ";May

"To be godmother to your son?
"Why, you may invite the rich man's

Find the principal street and on it
the largest brick house. Knock at the
gate and ask to see the merchant.
When he conies ask him to let his
daughter he godmother to your son."
"How dare I. a poor peasant,;ask
the rich man's daughter to be godmother to my son?" asked the peasant. "J am almost sure he will refuse me, as did my own villagers."
"Vou needn't worry about what he
will say. Jijst go and do as I tell you.
and get ready to baptize your son tomorrow morning; I'll be there on
time.'
til you come to a large forest. In tho
forest you -will find a "clearing. Sit
down there and rest youTself while
you take note of everything you see]
there-. When you are rested you will'
walk on -toward the east until you
come fo a wonderful garden in the
middle of which stands my house. I
will meet you at the gate."
With these words, the stranger dis-j
appeared.
IV.
The pexl day the boy followed the
ddreotions given him by his godfather,
and, after walking for about half of
the day, finally came   to the forest,
found the clearing and sat down    to!At her son's call the
rest.   Jn the center of the cleaning he land  shouted for help
noticed a big fir tree to the" top of

attached a heavy cldb, and right un-
He looked back once more and
recognized his father's field with its
stacks of rye and wbeat. Suddenly
his ear detected a sound of rolling
wheels
"I suppose It's father coming Dor
the sheaves," thought' the godchild*.
He gazed eagerly in the direction of
the approaching wagon, ln the hQjge
of getting a glimpse of his (father, but
but the man in the wagon was not Ms
father, it was Vasiley Kudrash, the
village thief.
"Father!" shouted the excited boy.
"Father! Vasiley is going to steal our
crop!"
"I've dreamt that some one Is stealing our sheaves." ^muttered the poor
peasant, sitting up in bed at the ssound
of his son's cry. He dressed hurriedly, mounted his horse and galloped away to the fields, getting there
just as Vasiley was through loading
the .wagon. The ggflcblld's father took
bold of the thief, beat him black and
blue and' then delivered bim over to
the village authorities. The godcMld
next turned his eyes upon the city,
where lived his godmother. He saw
iffat she was fast asleep, while her
busbaud was having a good time in
bad company.
"Wake -up, godmother!" shouted the
anxious god-child.- "Wake up, your
husband is in bhd company."
The godmother woke up, found her
husband in bad company and drove
hiini from her house. .,
The boy now '.-uriwd his eyes upon
his own bomo—there w;>.i his mother
fast asleep while a burglar was breaking into the house, about to steal their
only trunk of clothes.
Wake up, mother!" called the boy.

replies,   the   poor peasant found,   at
lust, the rich merchant's house.
"What can I do for you, my dear
man?'" asked the merchant of the
poor peasant.
"You see, Mr- Merchant," replied
the peasant, "the Lord has iblessed me
with a son. A gift of pleasure In may
young days, of comfort when I grow
old, and something to be remembered
by when I am dead. Nobody wanted
to be godfather to my son. At last I
have met a stranger who is willing to
come. Will you let your daughter be
the godmother?"
"Very well, my good men," replied!
the -merchant.   "Go home, my daughter will be there in good time."
The*next morning the godfather and
godmother came tn the noor neajtant's
hut, took the child to church, had It
baptized and returned it to the father.
This done, the godfather disappeared
without leaving any trace of bis identity. ■"
II.
Strong, obedient, bright and willing!
to work, the boy, In time -grew to he
a real blessing to his   parents.     At
school he learned in one year what It
took other five years/ to accomplish.
One day, when he had grown quite
big, It occurred to him, after a visit
to his godmother, that he would also
, like to visit his godfather. "If you
would only tell me whero my godfather lives, 1 would go over to see
him," said the godchild to his -parents.
As he turned, around he saw a
mother bear with her four young
cubs coming out of the thicket and
walking straight toward the trough,
The mother (bear sniffed the odor of
the honey, and, coming up close to
tbe trough, bent her bead to tests
some of it, but the heavy club hanging overhead was in her way. She
pushed it aside with her forepaw and
called to the young ones to come near.
The little cubs stuck their noses Into
tbe trough just as the heavy club
swung back right over the unsuspecting mother bear and her children,
striking them over the bead and
back.'....* .',,
Growling from pain, the cubs left
th© tjxmgh. while the mother bear
raised herself on her hind l«ga^jnnA
raised bis hatchet and wanted to kill
her. In the flash of a moment her
boy lifted bis magic staff and1 'hit the
burglar over the head, killing him on
the spot.
v.
i Xo sooner had the 'burglar dropped
than the wals came together once
more and the mysterious ctaaipber
looked the same as when the godchild
first-entered. The door opened and
admitted the godfather. Silently be
walked up to the ithrone, took the
boy by the hand and led bim down on
the -floor.
"You did wrong my <boy," be said
than you did me by disobeying my
order not to enter this room. You
sinned for the second time when you
walked up on the throne and took
the stiaff iu your bands; your third
mistakewas made .whon you, unwillingly, added more bitterness to tbls
hard world. Had you remained there
much longer you would have ruined
half, of the people."  He then took his
catching hold ot the Cub. swung It
back with such force that it almost
flew up to the very tree top. The Ub
tie cub came back to the trough and
sweet honey, but Just as they commenced to lick it, down came the
heavy club for the second time: killing the youngest of tbe cubs outright,
nnd severely hurting the others.
Witb a maddened snarl the mother
bear raised herself once more on her
bind legs, and using her whole
strength, threw back the club. Up, up
flew the heavy club, the rope com
menced to crack.-the tree shook and
j still the club kept flying up above the
very top of the fir.

lias seen him since the day when you
were baptised,"
"Then let me try to find-him,"
■pleaded the boy. "I am anxious to
know him and ought to go."
After some persuasion on the boy's
pan and objection on the father's, the
boy was finally allowed to start out In j
search of his godfather.

cubs.     The    club    had    meanwhile
reached the limit of Its flight and was
now   coming  back-—at   fimt slowly,
then swifter and swifter, until It finally came down like a thunderbolt over
the head of the mother bear.     She
turned a sommersault, gave a heart,
rending roar and fell dead, white the
three frightened cubs disappeared Into
the thicket.
The godchild gazed in bewilderment
.j,.. at the whole occurrence, sat tbere for
"a while longer and, remembering his
{godfather's instruction, went on hts
{way.     He   walked for another   few
, hours and finally came to the wonderful garden tn the middle of which
stood a beautiful palace,
The godfather met him near   the
gate, greeted him   with   much affection   and took bim   Into tbe garden.
The boy looked all about bim Iu awe
—not even in his dreams bad be ever
1 imagined such n place.
)    From the garden the godfather took

wonderful, more magnificent than tho

of peasants came on the .run, each dn
tuimrjiingjto drive tbe calf out of the
-field. v „
They nan, shotted and hooted, but
aH their-efforts only served -to drive
tbe skipping calf further an^ further
into tbe thick of the field, crushing
the tall rye and wheat in its frolic.
Oa the road stood an old woman,
who -was crying and vainly talMng Up
the excited peasants—she .was the
owner of the calf and feared tbat the
peasants would kill it in the mad race.
"See here," said the godchild to the
angry .peasants. "If you would take
my advice you would all of you get
out of that field and let that woman
call her calf. I am almost sure that
it will come In answer to her call."
Taking this advicfe, the peasants
backed out toward tbe road, while tbe
woman sat down on her beels, took a
piece of bread in her hand and called:
'Tiruci! Tiruoi! Tiruct!" The calf
stopped, raised its ears, listened for a
moment of two and turning about ray
straight to its owner.
All were very grateful to the godchild for his advice and thanked him
for it. Even the calf ffoelf, seeming
glad of -its delivery,, sniffed at his
sleeve.
"I am beginning to understand,'
•mused the godchild while continuing
his journey, "Hiat you cannot lessen
ev-11 by doing evil. It "seems that the
more people try to drive out evil by
doing evil, tbe more does evil grow,
But—-bow in the world is one to
lessen It? It was well In this case
that the calf came in answer to the
woman's call, but suppose it hadn't?
How were the peasants to drive it out
of the field without using force?"
Tnable to find a way ot lessening evil,
life sighed1 and moved on.in the hope of
learning it all iu good time.
VII.
At night he knocked at a peasant's
hut and asked permission to stay over
night. Tbfe kind housewife took Mm
in, gave his a place to sleep and he
went to rest at once. Unable to fall
asleep, be -watched 'the .peasant woman, who was cleaning up her house
for alioiiday, whioh was the next day.
She swept, dusted, scrubbed the floor
and finally began to wash the table.
She washed it for a short while, then
picked up a dirty towel from a chair
and commenced to wipe the table with
it, She wiped and wiped and still the
table seemed as dirty as ever. She
tried first one end, then teh other,
■wiped first lengthwise, then crosswise,
and still the table looked as dirty as
ever. l
"Wbat are you doing, my good
woman?" asked the godchild finally.
"As you See," replied the woman
with temper; "I have been cleaning
the house, but do what I may, this
table-will not get clean, though I bave
•been at It for the longest while."
"I would wash that towel first, and
tben wipe the table with it." advised
the godchild. The woman took his advice, washed- out the towel thoroughly and wiped the table clean in
no time.
The next morning he took leave o'f
bis grateful hostess and continued Ms
"Plant them into the -moist ground,",
ordered tbe -hermit.
"Do you see that\brook near yonder
mountain?" asked tho 'hermit iwhen
the sticks-were planted, \
"Go. over there," be ordered- th©
godchiild, "take a mouthful of water
and bring it here. Tben water tbe
first stump, while thinking bow you
taught tbe houspwife , to wash her
towel clean before wiping tbe table.
Then go back to the brook and bring
another mouthful of water and water
the -second stump, -, bearing in mind
wbat you advised tbe hoopmakers in
order to lighten their 'burden, tben go
for the third mouthful and water the
third stump, remembering how .ytou
taught the cattle dealers to build their
•bonfire." /
"The day that the three stumps
take root and send' fortb shoots tbat
day your sins will be forgiven."
The hermit, went back to his but
and the godchild went to carry tiie
mouthful of water, still puzzled and
unable to undestand the meaning of
tbe beranit's words.

"Now, look," said tbe godfather to

Three times did tbe godchild return
to t'hie mountain brook, each time
bringing a mouthful of water with
„! which he sprinkled the charred
stumps. This done, he went back to
t-he -hermit's but for food and rest.
When "tlie remit did' not answer
bis knock the godchild pushed back
the door and entered, only to find that
the hermit lay dead on his bench.
The godchild -looked,, about ithe humble but, found: some dry biscuits,
moistened 'them with spring water
and uuade bis meal on them. He next
found a spade, and going out into the
forest commenced to dig a grave for
.the hermit. Thus did he live for several days, carrying the water in Ws
mouth for the burnt stumps at night
and digging che grave by day.
Just as be had finished digging tbe
grave and waa about to bury the hermit, the villagers came to the hut
bringing' for the hermit his weekly
supply of biscuits. On finding that
f their old teacher wao dead they helped
the godchild bury him, blessed tbe
godchiild and elevated bim to the -position formerly Jield in their minds
by the hermit. They gave him the supply of .biscuits and left,'promising to
come back soon,
The godcMld took up bis abode in
the hermit's but, living on wbat the
kind village folic brought him, and
continuing to water his charred
stumps. This was noticed by some of j
the villagers. The manner of watering those stumps added more mystery to the godchild's origin and the
■plain vUlage people soon thought bim
to be a holy man and came to him tor
advice and blessing.
In a snort wane crowds started to
come from far and near; old and
young, rich and poor, all sought tho
holy hermit. They brought bim food
and costly presents,-but he kept for
himself only what be absolutely heeded, tbe .rest be distributed among the
sick and the suffering. '

who the gay singer was he camo face

Coal Operators Responsible for Strike
The good book tells us that the devil aud not a single operator has been in-
once quoted the   scriptures.   History dieted, and yet these district attorneys
teems with records of hypocrites aping
yirtues tbat tbey lacked the mental capacity to v realize and down, through
ages, we read of example after example O'f political and social degenerates
trying to cover up their real objects by
loud protestations of righteousness.
Today11 we see ' the same type in
Colorado crying for "law and order."
These people, like Judas, wbo betrayed Christ with a kiss, are attempting
know/and know well, tbat these men,
too cowardly to fight themselves,
hired and paid men for the sole purpose of committing murder, is not calculated to inspire confidence.
iThe usual crop of "friends of labor"
•is springing up, ready for November,
but this -time many of them are going
to be severely left alone. Tbe time bas
gone by when a man could be a
"friend of labor" for a few months
to betray the people   by   parrotlike |prior to each election, and the rest of

cries of patriotism and civic virtue.
One bad only to pay a little attention
to the history of the leaders of tliis
"cult' to realize what a hollow sham
it is.
Colorado today Is not in need' ot
legislation, tout no country on God's
green earth is more sadly in need of
more law. , The unhappy labor troubles that have been disturbing the
peace and hampering the progress ol
the State, can be traced wholly to the
flagrant disregard for the law, which
has characterized the operations of the
coal companies. These people Lave
treated with contempt all laws on the
statute books, which have been pUced
there to -prevent tbem unjustly exploiting labor. Tbe political domination in
Las Animas ahd Huerfano counties has
been known for years. ,The very
churches of the land have been invad-
ey by these interests. Immigration has
been so handled that there was a constant supply of emigrants "on hand,
whose ignorance of living conditions
made them ready tools of these merciless tyrants. Periodical strikes have
taken place, and was the present
strike patched up" ani the operators allowed another chance of working the
tbe same disreputable game that they
always- have worked, there is every
reason to believe that it would only
be a -question of time till another outbreak took placet   —
The wholesale indictment of miners
and charging them with conspiracy to
murder, and at the same time the palpable immunity of the operators from
all prosecution, in face of the fact
that tbey hired criminals, bought and
shipped in arms, and machine guns,
manufactured cannon at their Pueblo steel works and that their gunmen have committed murder after
murder, and are still at large, caused
that feeling of hopelessness to arrive
at a settlement of grievances by constitutional means, which broke out on
the 20th of April lfcst. All the talk
about maintaining the law and supremacy of the State is nothing but
idle chatter. Had the State done its
duty and administered the law, as it
should have done, and as tbe -people
of tbe State had a right to demand it
should be administered, the-trouble
.would, never have taken place. We
sowed to the wind and reaped the
whirlwind.
Had Colorado, even after these
things had happened, been blessed

iu tin: history of the coutnry. All party
lines are gone forever. The .political
bunch that has passed as real currency
for so lopg is at a big discount. The
trickster and the middle of the road
man has lost his chances of hoodwinking the people. '7 a ■■
After the weary months of fighting
after everything that unllmted wealth,
unscrupulous lawyers and the whole
for6e of the State militia -could do
has been done, against the miners*
cause, the outlook for tun and complete success was never better than it
is today. There can now be no question at all that victory wilt soon
crown the efforts of these people from
the coal camps, who have stood so
nobly for tbe betterment of labor conditions. It's true that many a coal
disser in Colorado hasT during the last
whiter," had'-to go short of what waa
his rightful due in the way of comfort, but compare his condition with
that of the coal, operators hanging
around afraid of their shadows, looking more like hunted criminals than
business men. The condition that
John D. Rockefeller and his son find
themselves In today, is worse than
that o-f the poorest striking miner.
The one has the "sympathy of thel
vast majority of his fellow human beings, 'llie other, despised and loathed
by- everyone not paid to pretend otherwise, afraid to look any one man in
the face. With all their advantages,
excelling only in the amount of their
ill-gotten gains and the fact that they
are the,-most despised and loathed human beings In existence.
On all sides can be seen signs that
will bring about a lasting peace-, and
when it does come, It will be in spite
of and not from any assistance rendr-
ed by the so-called "law and order"
party, whose efforts to hide their sln^
ister motives behind high sounding
titles have heen so thoroughly exposed. - With this peace, will come
the elimination of the hired liar* and
professional thug, and with the passing of these two classes or undesirable citizens, and it will include quite
a number, Colorado will be In a position to stake her rightful -position as
one of the most prosperous states in

Rebellion rears its grim and gory
head above the horizon ot society in
these United: States of Barbarism.
Horror .blanches the rotund faces

1789 In France grow vivid under condition that portend en outburst^eyen
more violent and fatal than that which
hurled from--power the fat and insolent aristocracy of France under Uie
sway of Louis XV. .
As in France in 1789, when an out;
raged, plundered and brutalized hour-
geoise rose in revolt and wrought a
vengeance upon the ruling class more
terrible than words can describe, so
now, in these United States, the
omens presage an equal vengeance upon the same class by tbe suffering
toilers. ■■• *,"'."
Revolt is ;here—and will not down!
Not even can the army and navy and
all other ^powers of brutal force vested
in government quench its far-sweeping flames.
Its f Jerces lie-at is yet pent up in
bounds of restraint.
■But, like the hurrying fire that siz-
les along a fuse attached to a plant of
dynamite, the sparks of revolt are
sputtering in a thousand places, all
speeding on toward a social cataclysm
such as the world has never seen—
such a one as will relegate that of
France in 1789 to a mere flash.
So Dives treniblei in fear for protection. He calls to his puppets in
high places in tbe Government to buttress him against the punishment he

like Whitman of New York, instead
ot such caricatures of officers of justice as the district attorneys of Fremont, Boulder and Routt counties, who
are nothing but political ,acrobats,
much of the dangerous impression
might havejieen removed, but when
these tricksters openly connive at the
disgracefully unlawful practices of
the operators on the one side and seek
any .petty frivolous pretext, which
tbey know ls rotten, to prosecute a
man solely and only because he Is a
striking miner, bow can you expect the
masses, to respect tne administration
of our Irwb?

watered bis stumps, Ute godchild wt
down to rest. Suddenly tbe thought
came to hhn:
"It Is foolish forme to fear tbe high,
wnyman. If the Lord wills H thnt I
dlo from bit hand, my death In itoett
msy be * means of T«p-Mrtence, I
have tinned by fearing death."
Juat then tbe highwayman came
galloping by, but tastead of ranning
sway, tbt godchild remained. And
when Uit robber came near enough
he saw chat the latter hnd a man
gagged and tied to bis -saddle.
"Wtttra art you,taking him?" de.
manded tht godchild, stopping in
front of tht rider.
"I am taking him into tbt dark-
forest," rttorttd tho robbor. "Ht
would not tell mo where hit father's
riches art hidden. Por this he thall
pay with hts lite." At be won «boui
to start his horse the godchild took
hold of tbo bridle.
"You must fret tht man before 1:
will let go tht bridle," he told tht
highwayman, sternly.        **
"I think you want to share his fate,"
retorted tht robber. "You remember
my promise to kill yoa when wt ntit
met. Let go or--" and ht took out
hit knife as b* had dono before.
"1 am not afraid of you any looter,"
•aid the godchild to too highwayman.
"f am afraid of no one but Ood.   It
ts he who wlxhet me to mv« that mnn
land you mutt let bim go,"
"To tht evil one witb hoth of y<Ni."j ""h"n

"Walt a moment." said tbt godchild to tbe bl-Miwayman, wh«»n h<-
too, wanted to get away tmm Ulm.
"It l« time that, yon repent ymir-sins
be highwayman. And aa tbe godchild looked at bim hit sympathy
went out to tbe grave sinner, for the
latter seemed cad and 'downhearted.
"My dear brother," pleaded tht godchild, stewing up to tht highwayman, "take pity on your suffering
soul. You torture others and you suffer yourself, lor you feel that you wJHj
be tortured In return. And yvtt-the4
Ixird loves you and pities you, tnd has
much happiness In store for you. Do
change your way of living! Dont
ruin yourtelf forsvor."
"Stop!" shouted tht highwayman
at laat. But tht godchild went down
on his knees In the dust, and endr-
olhig the robber's feet with both arms,
bent his head to tht saddle nnd wept
llko a child.
The highwayman wised hit head,
looked at tho crying godchild for a
moment and dismounted.
"You have conquered mt at mat,

hot revolutionist—a red, as they
called them in those day. He had
a fiery tongue—wy% how Jake * coald
talk. It done your heart good to
hear him. Well^ my father would
never stand for my marrylrtg an Epl-
corus (a disciple of Kpicurus, an
unbeliver), and so* Jake and I made
up our minds to try* our luck In the
neV country.
"We came te this country—lot me
se—about eleven years ago—and got
married. Jake got WtSfk in a cloak factory and we lived like tbat for a year
or so. Then my Hennele was born.
That is my oldest child; she ls going
on 10 years. Well, what should I tell
you, Jake worked like tbat for pretty
near nine years. Things wasn't always smooth with us; sometimes
thero was strikes; somtlmes the children was sick, and sometimes I myself was sick, but we always managed to get along. About a year
snd a half ago Jako himself started
In getting sick and th«n things went
from bad to worse. We went from
one doctor -to another and then, when
our money gave out, we went from
ono dispensary and hospital to another, Hut no one could do him any
good. One day be got a* hemorrhage,
snd then I knew It was the beginning
of Jho ond.
''Well, things dragged on like thai
for a year and a half. When lie toft
a little better he would go to, work,
and then he got sick again, lltladlardr

chr-rub round face, its curly blend

knotted Ipt.o two short braids barely
touching her shoulders: her lips dry
and parched; her steel gray eyes life-
loss; her cheeks sunken and colorless,'
and a sickly pallor o'erspread ber
face. And there stood the girl of.10—
a miniature of her mother—a mass of
platted dark brown hair; a serious. Intelligent face, somewhat emaciated
and pale, and large appealing Wack
eyes. In the background stood the
mother—the same as I had seen her
In my study a few hours ago. Pointing to her three chllldren she looked
at me , so appeallngly! so pitifully!
and faltered: ,.
"'My good friend, advise me.

t tossed uncomfortably upon my
bed, rolled from one side of the pillow
to the other, tried to shut out the
visions by burying my head beneath

the light of dawn found me covered

THE  HINDU  PROBLEM
Lying out in tlie harbor of Vancouver is a steamer at whose stem flies the Rising Sun. tlie emblem
uf Japan, and aboard of. which there are several
hundred: tiirlianned Hindus. These detained natives of India constitute, in the concrete, "the
Hindu problem."
Many, .speeches liave been ■ printed ftnd much
printer's ink used up in (he discussion of why they
should or should not be _ peri Wed to land bn Canadian soil. They -who are in favor of their entry
express themselves somewhat in this strain: "They
are British subjects who ..have fought to maintain
the prestige of the flag and now are forbidden to
participate in the enjoyment of their rights." If
these individuals who repeat parrotlike the utterances of the capitalistic press -wouM pause long
enough to allow an original thought to germinate
in their own brains, they might, ask themselves
this 'question: "Ts"itnot strange the couijtry these
Hindus have fought for is not good enough for
them to live in? They are compelled to look farther
afield for an opportunity of earning the means of
livelihood even at the risk of forfeiting that, which
they cherish so dearly, viz.: their caste. Why is
this V /
Who is objecting to the admission of these immigrants? Members of the working class and the
small business man. The white workers are objecting because of the effect they realize it would
have upon tlie market price of the only commodity
they have to sell, in other words, if this initial
hatch of jobseekers were thrown upon the labor
market, then   the struggle would   be intensified,
_lieea.HSfi_thhllJtaTldR.-'lllor*fl—Qf^JiflBfl—.gli,anp--pgfl,fll.ji's.
of labor power would soon be journeying across
the ocean, and their lighter-hued fellow slaves be
forced to work still harder chasing a job nnd accept less wages when they did obtain it.
The desire to live ns well as possible is inherent
in every sensible human being. The white wage-
earlier sees his ideals menaced by the advent of n
horde of -competitors with lower standards of living. The entipathy to the Hindu is economic, not
racial, If these people were'to'come into Canada
and demand higher rate of pay for certain classes
of work than do the white workers and positively
refuse to work unless their demands were granted,,
thc white workers would he loud in their praise of
such an action. This Rounds all 0. K. as a theory,
but in actual practice is palpably an absurdity.
Tlie only reason why employers of labor will hire
'knows full well that if the Hindu obtains a foothold, his (the merchant's) opportunity to dispose
of his wares with profit to himself-will gpadually
fade away into nothingness. The Hindu is not
only a cheap worker, but among them there" are
those who possess the commercial instinct equally
as strong as does the white business man, and
knowing the requirements of their countrymen,
could cater to them more satisfactorily than their
Caucasian compeer. This is the reason why we see
the small business man allying himself with the
white wage-earner in demanding that these would-
be immigrants shall be shipped back to their native
land.
There is not a shadow of doubt that this is a
problem for the politician that makes him wonder
how he may wiggle out of it and at the same time
nol affect his own prestige.
The British Government is between the devil and
the deep sea. If these. Hindus are kept out. of Canada (British territory) and returned to their own
country, where the feeling against British rule is
growing daily, the flames of sedition will lie .fanned
perhaps into a blaze, whilst, on the other hand,
■there are the western Canadians to be dealt with.
Once let tlie Hindus reach the conclusion that
they are only kept under because of their caste distinctions, determine to co-operate with their countrymen in governing themselves—then, indeed, is
it a serious outlook for the present ruling class retaining their power.
Whether the Hindu worker would be any better
off under native rule is a debatable question, but
the march of vents is not stayed in its course because it does not* meet with the approval of those
who prefer to be classed among the standpats,

at midnight. Visions of better days
arise.
AVe are asked .to state apropos of
the Excelsior band prize drawing,
which should have taken place on
July 4th, that owing to unforseen
circumstances, th4 drawing will not
take .place until July 23rd, at the
Orpheum theatre. Will persons selling tickets for same please return all
stubs, -monies, etc., not Hater than
July 21st? Prizes will be on view on
or about the l&th inst in the Co-operar

The following item appeared in the Spokane
Chronicle in a portion of that publication specially
reserved for items of interest to the "laboring
men."
"Difficulty in .securing competent miners is being experienced in some sections of Alberta and
British Columbia and the Spokane employment
agents are being called upon to furnish such help.
Aside from the drawback encountered in the
amount of railroad fare to the job. the employment,
agents have little trouble in filling the orders for
Alberta, but with British Columbia it is differnt.
The order in council from the immigration authorities keeping non-citizens of Canada outlof British
Columbia is being rigidly enforced now, and it is
said there are few Canadian miners to be found in
this part of the country.
"Some laborers and skilled mechanics are still
£inuingnt'possible"to^et^cros*rthe^inB7^oweveTr
and it is expected that this city will be called upon

British Columbia with such help for the greater

We don't know who is responsible for this
canard, and scarcely like to blame the person in
charge of the sheet, but when we mention that the
cutting was handed us in the Hosmer mines wash-
house by a man who, along wilh the 500 other employes, was just pulling out of the abandoned camp,
the irony of this absurd nnd lying statement can
be appreciated. No editor can be too careful when
handling statements of this kind, for it is one of
tlie most heartless and cruel methods of deceiv

today. Can nny sane person wonder that this

'Before Hosmer's final plunge takes
place, we can expect a debate • on
"Whose fault was lt the -mine didn't

hardly feel inclined to lay the blame

The sad part about it 1* that a Provincial election isn't -taking place «t

A Rugby.football game was contested up here on Sunday last between
teams representing - England and
Wales. Some fine play was seep on
both sides, and Judging from tbe play
an evenly -contested game was he result Some of our adherents of the
game are getting avoirdupois approaching embonpoint which won
rather conspicuous in football array.
Since the closing of the mines at
Hosmer, tbere has been a steady
stream of Job seekersvup here, mostly
of the foreign element.
The .bodies ef the seventeen American soldiers who fell at Vera Cruz
were brought-back to these shores on
a special cruiser and received- off the
Virginia coast by Secretary Daniels
of the navy ln the President's yacht,
the Mayflower. President Wilson paid
a tribute of honor in behalf of tbe nation to the fallen bluejackets, and
tbe whole administration at Washington wae moved to Join ln the funeral
demonstration.
(Why such extraordinary honor to
these bumble soldiers? It there not
something remarkable in the faot that
a national demonstration is made over
a few bluejackets who went down
to Mexico to kill and Instead were
killed themselves?
Ah, there Is a purpose in lauding
these common workmen who, had
tbey been killed In a coal mine instead
of shot while Invading another country, would not have been lauded as
heroes of immortal glory. They died
fighting for Rockefeller and- bis
class, and as this class Is supported by
military power, they must show tbe
American youth how glorious h Is to
die for their country, so' mat cney
too may enlist and have the privilege
of being shot full of cold lead to protect Rockefeller's Interest* In iMei-
Iro and being brought back on a special rrut«*r and burled tn flowers and
lauded by the President himself for
their Immortsl patriotism.

No, nothing of the kind for these

.The difference between tbe bluejackets and the miners is that the
bluejackets died fighting tor Rockefeller and Standard Oil and are therefore heroes, while the Michigan, West

fighting for freedom, for civilisation and are therefore outlaws.

only, a poor crowd in attendance.

We were an receipt of a circular
•from International, trying Jo explain
the reason why the International officers had been given an, incresrtfb lh
wages. Now, as this was the product
of a good many circulars to the International office, it ts apparent that
the increase was not given very freely, and from Information received
■perviously on the question, the circular did not contain all facts, and
our secretary iwas instructed to notify them of such.
Our pit committee, made a trip to
Blairmore to interview -the general
manager over a number of grievances.
They came away satisfied that their
trip had 'been productive of much good
on our .behalf, and if-the fulfill
their, promise to send down the surveyor to mark out a suitable spot to
ibe use as a cemetery, they will be supplying a long-felt need. Not that the
death roll I® very heavy here, nor do
ive -want It to hs. but when death" does
visit us, as things are at present, we
are put to too ' much inconvenience
and expense. The three measuring
committees' reports were accepted as
satisfactory, .with the exception of
there being too many full chutes.

The fact of Jt being a memorial service and the Rev. Cook's first appearance In the pulpit, had the effect of
drawing a crowded house. The
choir and the band rendered music
appropriate to the occasion.
The children of this burg are .now
enjoying their -sum-mef holidays, and
It is with -regret that' we record the
departure from our teaching staff of

very able organist.
With the advent of another spell of
fine weather, our tennis' enthusiasts

at that pastime.
Dame rumor had it that the genial
"Doc" of Frank (late of Bellevue) had
left for his home in Nova Scotia. But
once again rumor was at fault, ss
"Doc" is still In our midst as pleasant
as ever.
Judging by the number of lectures
given around the pool rooms, and the
quality of oil carried around, Bellevue
will soon have some oil magnates.

It was decided by the Local to donate a sum of money in aid of the

The usual crowd of Bankhead rooters were . in attendance, though f he'
elements were very much against watermelon picking, the train leaving
Bankhead in a blinding snowstorm.
Exshaw won the toss and elected to
kick with the wind, which was almost
a cyclone. The 'ball was in Bankhead-
teritory most of the first half, aud
only the good kicking by Ed. Dunnigan
and Scotty Wright saved Exshaw
from scoring. Glover played the
game of his life, as did Gordon Hat-
ellffe, whose every effort was given
much acclaim by the two members of
the fair sex who braved the elements
to see their team win. Half time
score, 0-0.

seen, both sides playing pretty combination, but Bankhead was not be to

GOVERNMENT BY ASSASSINATION
The industrial strikes in West Vir-
gtoia, Michigau., Oolorado and. other
States within the.- past few months
•have demonstrated .beyond cavil that
under our progressive plutocracy the
iBoasted "government of our fathers"
has degenerated Into government by
assassination.
When clashes occur between plutocratic interests and the proletarian
masses a host of gunmen and assassins,
are promptly dispatched to the scene
and at once the' 'bloody work .begins
and no quarter is shown to tbe slaves,
nor even to their wives and children,

est man in, the
first mortgage 'bonds than the
wealth of any. other individual. And
he owns enough of other securities of
.pubile service corporations to make
him the most formidable factor in tbe
-business life of America.
Rockefeller's ffroflis from public
service corporations can fairly he
guessed at .when it ds known that the
people in the cities pay more than one
billion dollars a year'for light, heat
and local transportation, and that
Rockefeller and Standard Oil own the
largest share in most of these corporations.
Standard Oil has reached all over
the world for investments und power,
and its influence iu other countries is
almost as great as in the United States.
It recently formed n .business partnership with the Chinese Government,
under which it will exploit the mineral resources of c large part of China.
It has already taken millions out of
that country and its investments
there now exceed $20,000,000. Its
shareholders are lending the Chinese
Government $20,000,000 to finance an
engineering contract -with an affiliated
company.
Standard Oil spent $5,500,000 jecent-
ly for more oil lands in'Mexico; where
it purchased 'tht property of the M&-
derps, and it paid $9,000,000 for oil
lands in .'Louisiana a few years ago.
Standard Oil has more than $200,000,-
000 invested in countries outside tbe
United States, and its influence and
Investments are constantly growing!
Her fleet of ocean-going vessels is
larger than the United ,States navy,
and when ships are running through
the -Panama canal Standard Oil will
supply them iwith fuel oil from a pipe
line stretched across the Isthmus.
As a financial factor. 'Standard Oil
is the greatest power in the civilized
world. The combined wealth of Rockefeller and his associates is greater
than that of tht Rothschilds, and it has
been produced' in only one generation.
Their influence is sufficient to overthrow the Gqvernment and destroy
civilization itself.
Even the mighty Morgan was subordinate to Standard Oil during the latest
years of his life, no large financial undertaking .being possible "without their
co-operation or support. Harriman,
Brady and Whitney were all part of the
Standard Oil money-making ' inn-
chine. Not one of them could survive
a large financial transaction without
Standard Oil backing. Ryan, Doian,
Widener and Elklns, traction and 'gas
magnates, were part of the Standard
Oil combination, and even the mighty
-jitinesr7rTiHrYfirTifo"great tnjratwFSir
must bow to the will of Rockefeller.
There has been no such power in all
the civilized world as 'that possessed
by Standard Oil, and the question now
Is what can 'be done to restore the balance in America. Standard Oil and
Rockefeller dominate the business life
of the country. They control education through the colleges they endow and they guide the affairs of religion through -the churches they support and the ministers they pension.
They control even the voice of the
press through ehe power of adverfcls-
press through the power of advertls-
can survive without their favor.—'Appeal to Reason. _%

submission.
Brute force rules the day, and the
giiD'man is its incarnation on the industrial battlefield. The gunman is
armed with the latest machine gun;
he is a murderer pure and simple, 'but
he has nothing to fear from1 the law.
•Indeed, the law -protects him, for he
murders In the name of the law, and
his plutocratic master is the maker of
the law and the maker of the Judge
who construes the law—-In the interest
of hts maker.
iThe orjjanized workers are today
confronted by government -by assassination, and this latest creation of the
ruling class to subjugate their slaves
has to be grappled with and throttied
if organized labor Is-not to bite the
dust ln the United States.
President Wilson's "government of
the fathers" is a mere ghost of the
past, and while Congress ls fiddling
away at its old tunes in Washington,
Rockefeller's gunmen are shooting
government by assassination into the
working class.
Czar Rockefeller is the real ruler of
the American people and the old government has practically gone out of
(business since John the First set up
government iby assassination.
'Rockefeller's private army of gunmen is .backed up by the militia of
the several States, and their business
is to assassinate working people who
object to slavery and degradation, as
they are now doing In the State of Colorado. -,
It .will "soon be time to elect another Congress and another set of governors, sheriffs, etc. Workingmen
who are favorable Impressed by government iby assassination and want to
see it continue in force should not fail
to vote for Republican, Democratic and
Progressive -candidates, all of whom
stand alike for Rockefeller's private
ownership of the earth and" government by gunmen and assassination to
protect his slaves in their God-given
right to produce wealth for his benefit
and rejoice in his glory—or starve.—

SIZING UP A GENTLEMAN
Once more the question, what con-
ttltutes a gentleman, is going the
rounds. It was started this time toy
a clause In the British Workingmen*!
Insurance act which says any one who
carat more than 1800 a year and does
no manual 'labor it a gentleman, and
not entitled to the benefits of tbe
act. Tbe immediate problem was
railed by the Liverpool 8teamtbip
Owners'Association, .while recognis-
tog that the captain, mate, eecond officer and everyone in the engine
room down to the sixth assistant are
technically gentlemen under the act,
fears that tbe seventh assistant engineer, who hai to do tome- oiling or
wiping of something of a mamial na-
ture like that, -it therefore outside the
charmed circle of gentility. The
shipowners nre -perturbed lest the act
create an undesirable class conscloua-
nets among their employee affecting
the eocial status in the mete room nnd
otherwise dlstuttlng the etiquette of
high seat. An appeal bat been made
to the Chancellor of the Exchequer,
Mr, Lloyd (leorge. for an official ruling
on tb* vexfnar point.
J It Is curious to observe that the old
, Idia of caste should creep out even In
;thl» ultra-democratic legislation. Tbe
theory an tradition that manual labor
and being a gentleman are incompatible still cHnim to the British mind.
If the seventh assistant engineer, being promoted to ninth assistant and
has someone nine do bis oiling and
wiping, h* automatically btrnmei a
"gent." The tmm* tetlitxt leads many

ITALIAN  WORKERS  AROUSED
That Italy is resting on a volcano of,
discontent, which is likely to burst''
forth at any time is the information
brought by Arturo Caro:!, former organizes of the Garment Workers in Ihis
country, who was elected as deputy to
;ie Italian national chamber at the rent election's. Caroti is here for the
purpose of drawing up some agreements 'between unions in the United
States and Italy.
"We are expecting a revolt in Italy,"
he said. "The nation is the most
heavily taxed In the world, and It cannot last much longer. The Socialists
have never 'been stronger. We have
50,000 party members and the finances
of the organization are healthy. The
-mem-ber-shlp of the party* has arisen
from 28,089 in July, 1912, to over
50,000 at the present time."

PROHBITION WILL NOT
CURE ECONOMIC ILLS
Peter Sullivan, for soliciting, alms,
was given thirty days In the county
Jail by Police Judge Stanley on Monday.—Sentinel.
The above Item appeared In the
local columns of a -paper published
-in one of the leadfng towns of California. Peter -Sullivan was given a
■jail sen-teHce-of~tbii ty_daysr"-because"
necessity demanded that he should become a solicitor for alms. Peter Sullivan was without employment. He
was homeless, penniless and luingry,
und 'because in bis desperation he was
forced to become a beggar, "insult is
ndded io .Injury," and he is gives to
understand tbat a hungry, jobless man
without money .supplicating -assistance to appease the pangs of want, is
a criminal and deserves the penalty
of thirty days in a county jail.
When a man is so financially embarrassed that be ls without the
means to purchase a meal to satiate
the cravings of hunger, be must bear
with fortitude the agonies that follow
from an empty stomach, for if he appeals to his fellow man for the necessary assistance to secure a meal, he
becomes a beggar, and under the vagrancy act, he becomes tbe Inmate of
a Jail.
It will be noted In tbe Item taken
from the Sentinel that Peter Sullivan
was given thirty daya for aolloitlng
alma
It waa a crime for Peter Sullivan to
solicit- alms, but it la oot criminal
tor organised bodies, calling themselves charitable societies, to place
their agent on the streets to solicit
anybody and everybody for ftinde
under the pretext that the money collected is to be used to relieve distress and poverty.
The profeaaional solicitor aa this
agent of a so-called charity organisation la not molested, Botwtthetandlng
the fact that tha moat ot tto fund*
collected are used to ipajr the salaries
of Christianised highwayman.
Had Peter Sullivan been a diplomat
he would have so manipulated matter*
that he would have had' himself   ap-
Klnted or elected as tht custodian or
ensed solicitor cf charity, and then
the lay would not have seised him
and thrown film Into Jail.
Hut Peter Sullivan was a working-
man out of a job. HU purse was
wnpty tind his clothes were shoddy.
Me waa friendless, moneyless and
masteries*, and because hit poverty
forced htm to beg, he waa a criminal
and a«nt«nce«l to jail.

give three cheers for that democracy
tint we boast of beneath the canopy
of Young Columbia.
From all appearances nation-wide
prohibition will be the next prize that

the cause of tlieir" miseries, and/vitii

teeth of the liquor problem will be
drawn only when private exploitation
and private profits are removed from
all.form of intoxicants. The moro
drastic the forma of liquor traffic
suppression are, the more villainous
will be the stuff-that is smuggled to
tte buyer. Socialism offers the
only scientific and reasonable remedy for the liquor evil—lor evil dt ta.
With tbe profit* removed from all
boose, the incentive to adulterate and
offer for sale will disappear. It ls
not pure liquor that constitutes a
menace; it is the possibility of mak*
ing easy monoy by adultering and
selling the deadly stuff that la now
mixed and offered to the youth of
the land. Nation-wide prohibition
may or may sot be a benefit, but let
it be understood that it is not the issue before the nation. The big, paramount Issue beforo tbe people of the
world is private exploitation through
the private owner-ship of the earth
and tbe profit system; and to abolish
that la to remove countless evils similar to the privately conducted aa*
loon. And If the attempt la made to
magnify nation-wide prohibition to a
point where It #111 befog the real Issue, then we should bo intelligent
enough to refuse to bt turned from
our purpose and remember that what-
ever evil there ta la the liquor traffic
arises from the profit element la tt.
The present boose business it an

For the laBt twenty-five years the
continuous emigration of a great multitude pt European people to other
countries has caused considerable
worry In almost every country of the
continent. Numerous large holdings
are held toy a few noblemen. They,
of course, allowed the peasants to till
the soil for them. The peasants did
not cultivate the soil for the leftovers of the feudal system; -but they
were solely oppressfed by their "lords."
Consequently, they began to look for
new climes to eke out a livelihood for
their families. They left Europe in
such great numbers that, in a short
time, miles of cultlvatable land were
abandoned;
■Today, agriculture, as an industry
is more heavily subsidized and aided
by the governments of tho European
countries than any other field.
As far Iback as 100 years ago the
foundation for giving special aid to
farmers and rural agricultural landholders was started in Prussia under
the ad-ministration of Frederick -the
Great. The 'Landscliaft, or land moit-
gage bank/ was first originated with
ihe organization of rural credit banks
under the ausplc-es of the Prussian
f-iovprnmeiH. The' Prussian Government had realized that the improvement of the lands and the - development of agriculture could not be possible or permanent unless the owners
of the lands had a financial system
devised for negotiating loaps, based
upon improved lands as security, on
long time and, at a low rate of Interest. It was also realized that the
commercial banks could not undertake long time loans, as their resources
depended upon short time deposits on
current or open account.
Finally the Government, being the
most deeply interested in the welfare
of Its agriculture, undertook to organize and capitalize the first landscliaft
bank, and give to the landowners an
opportunity to hypothecate their lands
as security and -secrue long time loans
at an Interest rate of not more. than
4 per cent
In those days the gre^t tracts of
land were owned by the nobility and
the decree of the Government required
that all land owners in each district
or province should be held Jointly liable to the bank on loans granted to
any single owner.
The system created the first step
toward a plan of the unlimited' liability ln 'borrowing money which has
grown Into such wide popularity at
the .present time, especially in the organization -of the Landscliaft and the
Relffeisen system of banks. These
land mortagage banks may be institutions created and capitalized by the
Government; ~-ur~ they toAi' be Joint
stodrtuftiiutioffl-*^©^^^"fifinnak-
ing money on the capital instead as
well a* handling loans on farm property. These Government banks, or
rual co-operative banks, declare no
dividends, the profit accumulating going each year into the reserve funds.
The method of operation ln these
land mortgage banks ls usually as follows: Should a landowner wish to
borrow on bis land, say, $1,000, on
long time, he -makes bla needs known
to thctonk. The bank thereupon investigates the real value of the land
to bo .nortgagei, including the lm-
r'xveuicnts, ani the sum sought Icr
Is gmivted on a basis of 50 per jeut of
the market value oi thc property of-
fe red as security.
On fifty-year I0.11.1 the Interast Is
in islly A per cent, the "lunortiiaton."
added to the expense or commission
charged by the bank, brings the entire Interest charged to 514 per cent
par annum, while the amount of the
principal ls reduced each year. The
titles to all real estate are guaranteed
by the Government, hence there can
be no flaw In the titles. When the
land mortagnge has lieen filed nnd accepted by tbe bank witb the practl-
ml concent cf thc Govermnewt debtm-
tures or bonds are lastied to thn full
amount or tbe loan. These bonds are
dollvetfed to ibe former wbo oan go
out and market them; In ordinary
cases the bank pays to tbe borrower
at once the amount of tbe loan and
sells tbe fttonds itself.
This peculiar mortagage loan Is for
[fifty yeara on the"amortliation ,Man."
IThe term "amortl-sntlon" Is payment

loans and for short time credit needs
of the farmers which has proven of
ralue. Government aid has played an
important part in the work.
The mortgage cpedlt Institutions ot
Hungary, are neither purely co-operative nor strictly private. The oldest
and most important bank in Hungary
is the Hungarian Land Mortgage Institute found in 1863. The Government contributed $200,000 of the capital stock of the company and the (balance was subscribed by "founders,"
who, however, were only jrequired to
pay 10 per cent of the amount of
the stock for which they subscribed.
These founders receive a dividend limited to 5 per cent of their subscriptions. Besides the, founders, every
landowner who plared a mortgage
with the bank is a member of the
bank. Only those who have a mortgage indebtedness to the bank of at
least $20,000 haye any voice in the affairs of the bank. The other members may elect representatives to the
general meeting. As soon as a farmer's mortgage expires his membership
In the bank dies.
Under this form of organization the
Hungarians attempted to secure the
co-operative principle of representation of Mie borrowing farmers while
at the same time .placing the greater
part of the power in the hands of the
founders. Only the founders have the
power to elect the president and the
board of control. The management
has fallen Into -the hands of a few
men who, however, ,bave so managed
Its affairs for the public good that it
has satifactorlly met the mortgage
demands of the Hungarian landowners, with this fault, however that its
business is carried almost exclusively with large landowners.
The process of,securing money to
lend to landowners is that of selling
bonds equal in amount to the mortgages placed with the bank and secured by the mortgages, and, secondly by the capital reserve funds of
tho bank.
The failure of the Hungarian Land
Mortgage Institute to.meet demands
of small farmers led to the organization of the Hungarian National Small
Holding Institute but 'with thy provision in its chapter that It shall not
grant loans to large landowners until
tho demands of the small owners had
been satisfied.
This bank also grants loans to peasant farmers when a big estate is subdivided among many holders. Mortgage loans are granted for only 50
per cent of the value of the land in
Hungary but lt has been found that
when any big estate ls sub-divided, the
income from the land is so Increased
that It is safe to loan up to two-thirds
ample of this aid from the State which
the Austrian societies enjoy, the Diet
of Galicia' in 1890 placed at the disposal of the Provincial Government a
sum equal to about $400,000, to be
used- to further the work of the cooperative societies, and ten years later
established the Provincial Bank for
co-operative societies at Leopoli,
which now administers the fund.
One of the most interesting investigations of the American commission
outside of. the field of credit, was made
when the famous co-operatjve live
stock and meat market of St. tMarx of
Vienna was visited. ,   " "■   ■
'About sixty years ago, so they
learned, the live stock market trade
of Vienna fell Into the bands of a limited number' of cattle dealers .who
monopolized it to the Injury -of both
the producers and the consumers. To
breaw up this monopoly the city government of Vienna established a municipal meat foundation making obligatory the extension of credit to the
tatlon of liability In the courts? Jf
incompetency is not, proven the liability of the company Is limited -under the law to the value of so much
of the vessel as was saved and the
pending freight money. The owners
of the Nantucket protected themselves by having the steamer sold at
a marshal's -sale, where she -was
bought in by the president of the
company. Thus the value was estab-
Ushedv and to meet the damage
claims amounting to about $1,000,000
there is only $85,000, the amount for
which the Nantucket was bought in
—unless it is proven that her crew
were Incompetent.
■The inspector of hulls. m his "flndT
ings and decision," states that the
■Monroe carried six Curley Jlfecrafts.
One of these rafts saved seven persons. The captain of the Ill-fated
ship stated that the boat in which
he left the ship picked the chief
steward and a few others off a raft
unde"r the stern of the vessel, Tlie
chief steward testified that he hung
on the rail of the steamer until she
sank.  . . ■'■■«''■
The evidence regarding the raft was
contradictory, nevertheless the inspector thought it important to show
that some of the lives were saved by
the raft, but did not deem It Important to emphasize the fact that a
waterlogged lifeboat, which had
gone overboard "by the run," drifting  with  an open plughole    in  her
purchasers, who in this instance were '• bottom*, proved    more valuable than
the butchers. the   entire set  of  undamaged   rafts,
Out of this system grpw the present

Pres. Wilson-Humorist
Since he became President, Wood-
row Wilson has done numbers of
things that other President have not
done. iHe has read his own messages
to Congress, -he has allowed himself
to be quoted directly in the newspa-
pers and he bas endeavored to gain for
Jiimself the reputation of being a democratic sort, of person. And now he
blossoms forth as a humorist.
The .President told a convention of
business men In Washington that the
country is suffering from a depression. iThen came the joke, his crowning burst of humor: BUT IT IS ONLY
PSYCHOLOGICAL!
■Isn't, that a delicious bit of fun?
'^Phychological hard times!"
Woodrow Wilson may now take his
place with .Mark Twain, Bill Nye and
Bill iT&ft.   Especially Oill Taft.
"God knows," said Taft. "Psychological," says Wilson.
Taft--told    the    workingmen    that
"God knows" what a workingman is
to do when  he is out of a job and .,
can't find one.   Wilson tells him that
his condition is merely a psychological
one.   If Hill Smith is hungry aud has
[not the price of a meal, we may sidle
(up. to Bill, in the light of this new
dispensation, and Avhis|>er softiv into
Bill's ear that the trouble with him
ts that he Is    only    phychologically
1 hungry—-It's   his    mental    condition
I that's botheriijg him. not his stomach!
!    A stiff course   In psychology will fix
UiU—a -fow nights .with a good tutor
will fix bim "out.   What he needs is a
new psychology.   There's nothing the
matter with him sscept his point of
view.  'Bill has been looking on lunch
counters too long—he's gathered unto
himself a bad habit.   A new twist in
his mental machinery will fix him so
tliat he will never know that he has a
stomach—leave it to his new psychology!
Professor Wilson ought to traipse
down to the Bowery or over on Cherry
Hill iwlth his new teaching. He ought
to tell it to the men who are enjoying
enforced vacations in Detroit, in Chicago, In San Francisco, In the big
steel towns, perhaps even in Washington, right handy under the Presidential nose.
The President is on the short and
easy road to fame. Nothing to it now.
He has conquered the hungry stomach. The country is saved once. more.
Bill Taft, with his "God knows," was
a mere piker. He hadn't the right
Idea at all. Professor Wilson IiSls
painted "Eureka" on his Hue and
flung it to the national breeze. Have
a bite of psychology, all ye who are
hungry and on your uppers. Perk up
and sail in; there's plenty of psychology for all! Let it become the national
diet! Ko trust can corner It; Rockefel-
i ler can't raise the price!

stomach out of business—the man .who

This old world haa oome from primitive nebula, passed through many upheavals to pav© tho way for future development.   Every geological   change
destroyed untold minions of living organisms in the -building up and preparing conditions for the possible
creation of new creatures. New social
systems have come and gone. Volcanic-like eruptions in human society
have invarlbly taken place, Tbe great
auk and many other huge monsters of
primeval days, not being adapted to
changed conditions established by the
forces of nature would undoubtedly
become voracious and in the death
struggle, millions of other animals, a
-species more tn keeping with the newly
completed order, would perish under
thn mighty paw. In the modern battle

A STKIKE AGAINST CHILD LABOR
London is experiencing the novelty
of a strike against child labor." Fifteen hundred girls working for a big
provision firm went on strike -because
the firm advertised for girls under the
ago of 18 years. For years it has beer,
the boast of this firm tha*. in spite of
the practice of Its rivals it had"noTer
employed a girl under 18 years of age.
Recently girls of 14 and ifl years were
advertised for and placed at work in
the tin >box making room on machines
•which have never 'been considered safe
•for Inexpert operatives. The older
girls protested against the child labor,
and when no attention was paid to
their protests went out on strike. The
600 men employed by the firm joined
the girls because last year "When tho
men protested against being given

the most Impressive and representative ever held In this city. The body,
enclosed in a handsome polished casket, was conveyed on fire wagon No.

then proceeded to the Presbyterian
church, headed by the Coal Creek Excelsior band, playing very impressively the Dead March. Rev. McQuarrle
delivered a most impressive address
to a crowded audience. The reverend
gentleman spoke very feelingly of
the deceased, and impressed upon his
hearers the necessity of "keeping
their house in order," for they knew
not when, like ho whose body lay be-
fore bim, they might be cut down in
their youth. After the service, the
procession reformed and marched to
the cemetery, where after the minister had read the service ot tho Pres-
ibyterian church the Dictator and
Prelate of the Loyal Order ot Moose

burial service of that order.

Philadelphia, Pa., June 23.—"It'6 an
insane thing not to recognise organizations of labor," said John Wanamaker today in giving further testimony before the United States commission on industrial rela-tlona. He
made this statement ln reply to a
question whether employers should
recognise labor unions. On tho general question ot ta/bor unionism, Mr.
Wanamaker said he believed laibor had
suffered ffIgbtfully in the past because
of poor leaders, .but added that he ia
seeing a better class of leadership
coming in.
Commissioner Welnetoek, of California, who presided today, asked the
witness it he could supply the -missing
link that would bring capital and labor together. Mr. Wanamaker *aid:
"I believe that labor and capital have
the right to organise. On tho one elde,
capital, there is reoponslbUity, and on
the other, labor, there Is none. The
missing links. 1 believe, to bo prejudice and misunderstanding, which
muet be overcome. Ono ot the ways
to wipe out this prejudice and misunderstanding is to unhitch latoor unions
from political pat-Ueg."    .   ,       *
Speaking of capital. iMr. Wanamaker

great mistake when he put President
Wilson in the position of sending
