President Christophers
Sues Editor of Free
Press For Slander
A writ, has been issued in the Sa-1 While in Pernie this week President
prenie Court of British Columbia by Christophers stated to The District
P >M. Christophers, president of Dis. •■ Ledger, in response to a request for n
trict 18, U.M.W. of A„ against John i statement regarding the suit, that the
Rene Wallace, Editor of the Fertile
'Free Press. The writ was served on
Tuesday, A. Macneil, barrister, acting
for the plaintiff.
The charge against Mr. Wallace is
that of slander. It is understood that
Mr. Christophers, previous to his re.
cent election to the presidency of the
District, discovered that certain state,
ments were being made regarding him
which were calculated in his opinion
to injure his standing with the workers of the District. He now alleges
that these statements were made by
Mr. Wallace. ,
matter was np\v entirely out of his
hands, and "he was not in a position
to comment upon it.
The intimate connection the editor
of the Free Prtf-j has with the Crow's
Xest Pass Coaf Company adds to the
interest of the case since it is said that
a manager of that company is quoted
in connection with the alleged slander
which acts both as a reflection of the
honor and integrity of the company as
well as of President Christophers.
It is likely that the case will come
up for trial at the June assizes.

Returned Men Held a Big
Demonstration on Par-
lia°ment Grounds
There has been a big commotion on
the coast because of the G.W.V.A.'s
objection to the appointment of Mayor
■Gale, of Vancouver, as utilities com.
misisoner. They claimed that the
position Had been promised to a returned soldier and decided that several
hundred men from Vancouver would
crogs to Victoria and with returned
soldiers in that city make a protest.
They made the trip but in the mean,
time .Mayor Gale resigned. The soldier's delegation asked for the disso.
lution of the provincial government
forthwith and the holding of a provin.
cial election. .Nearly four thousand
returned men with their friends and
sympathizers held a mass meeting in
the parliament building grounds lind
endorsed the demand for dissolution.
Premier Oliver asked for a day in
which to prepare his reply and in a
lengthy statement points out the num.
ber of returned soldiers who have been
given positions, claims tliat ah election
at present would hot be fair to the
men recently returned and those to
come whose names are not on the voting list and says: "In view of the in.
controvertible facts will you withdraw
your indictment and apologize for the
wrong you have done?"
Another part of his statement Is as
follows: .,
"Immediate dissolution of the government would prevent a thorough in.
vestigation of our possible sources of
revenue and the preparation of the
legislation necessary to be enacted at
the next session of the province.
"Immiidiaiu dissolution with all the
uncertainties attendant thereon would
have a disastrous effect upon our in.
dustrial development.
"Immediate dissolution would make

From start to finish there was not a
dull minute. There were no "wa.ll
flowers," everybody danced. The music
Hy the Whitehouse orchestra made it
absolutely Impossible to keep one's feet
still. At midnight there was a-=**aessa_
tion of dancing and coffee, tea, sand
wiches and cake in abundance and
excellent quality were passed around.
And then the music recommenced, the
musicians favoring the happy dancers
with ninny extras, It was after three
o'clock before the programme ended.
The commltteo of the Federated Labor
Party which nut on tho dance deserves
hearty congratulations and are more

THE DiSTRICT LEDGER, FERNIE, B.C., APRIL 25, 1919
Paris Workers Bear Red Flag
On Jaures Day
BY SPEARMAN LEWIS
{HiK-ago Tribune Foreign News Service)
PAIJiS. April 7.—The red Hag oi"    revolution—unrest,    soviet,
socialism—-anything of protest that you may wish to call it—made
its unchailentred appearance on the streets of Paris yesterday.
Behind it. beside it, in front of it. marched men and women
by tens nf thousands."* From tite curb.- uf many boulevards and
lesser la.ir-, of travel other hundreds of thousands of Frenchmen and
French uniren openly approved the uuin-liers or gave them passive
smiles of vniipalby. '
liol.iio/ f>-.v and hearty from the throats of the marchers rose
"The Ii.; '••/.'iiinmiUv ■' the world famous song of the communist—r.the
man who pn "iaims all workers brothers and defies the boundaries
<d' states ,.<'i* ;i,ttions. When they tired of the song they hooted Cl(S
meiie,•an. "the Uger'; savior of France.
Gendarmes Are Silent
Win, ;!)-■ silent gendermes looking on, chained to the curbs
by thf liiirl er-itjw. who were quick to pulse„the temper of the throng,
tliesi :1hiusiid.!n traversed unmolested a .great section of Paris Sunday a ft en n.    Wise men sat in many corners Sunday night    and
3lond.n    ti I ti ied their best lo put a microscopic glass upon it all and
hunt th   -Hiir-c whence it. came.
T1, ue.jin.uHin was a casual matter to.the Americans in Paris,
but to ' • Fietuliinan, in whose tieart .smoulders a protest of many
tu-aiy , a.1-., the occasion centered in Jaures, the martyred leader
of -so* laksta U,- slayer was recently acqititted. IMany marchers
on Sinid. > niidinibtedly believe that Vidian escaped the guillotine
because tno jury was of the hated "bourgeois" or middle class of
wealth .uul'influence.
Believe It Anyhow
It is .pm. probable that there is not a lick of truth in such an
a.ssumpn. i, inn the workers under the red banners have believed it
more i I -,* Sunday's parade had as its announced purpose the de-
liven ' • .Jc.li--.>' heme of floral wreaths, and of a red bannered demons!!,1 i.. i irther down tho. Avenue Henry ^Martin. Both were
nei'om -1 -h»d
*-t\ I ri i doing for Use first time in long forgotten years tlie red
11 a ir (i     > ■ "ii inline was flaunted proudly and fearlessly in Paris.
Fti t'n iist <ime in long forgotten years soldiers of France in
nniud i hia ili>. captains, ciMninaiidants, colonels—inarched openly through Il.e .streets'of Paris arm in arm with civilians, and in
un! > ^,,\, * 'dill floated no tricolor. Tlie one flag was a red flag-
anil no poll.-1 <]ttrt:H\ to raise a hand.
No Cavalry Charge
F"i  ihe insi time since wars not. forgotten—for it was 1370—
ers, worn by two of every three you met on the boulevard. Our oar,
in which were two American colonels, a lieutenant, secretary to a
peace commissioner, and two photographers, attracted no more attention from the marchers or gendarmes than if we had been snug at
home.     The mind of marcher was on other things.
* With the congestion at its greatest a'big sightseeing truck filled
wRh doughboys plowed through the» crowd. A doughboy, hi perfect
-good nature, called to our chauffeur and asked him, "What in hell's
it all about;" and our chauffeur answered, "Damned if I know."
And that is exactly the attitude of mind today at the Hotel
(Villon, at the Quai d'Orsy. ov wherever sit those few though whose
hands wind the slender threads of destiny. They do nm* know just
what it means or how to answer it.
Statesmen at Sea *•*,
They frankly ask:
"Does it moan merely a protest against the verdiei in the (rial.'
Does it mean the, first .rumble of open discontent with the delay in
peace proceedings? Does it* .presage a fall of tlio ministry that was
great in war, but has lost the workers' confidence in peace'? .Does
it go deeper to the foundation of the state?"
All feel the answer will soon be written.' The red flag has been
unfurled in the capital of lhe world. Whether it was to mark a passing protest or to ,warn of tomorrow is for tho; wise men*   to guess.
My most vivid recollection of the parade was at its close. Behind us f&r miles stretched a Mack river of marchers.
"See," shouted a man who leaped on the curb for a better look,
"today we show ourselves, our strength; next time we shall use it."

FERNIE VOTE ON O. B. U.

The Following Circular From Tom
Moore and Paddy Draper is
of Intensest Interest to Men oj
District 18 In View ofthe Big
Majorities They Are Piling Up
For The ONE BIG UNION;
Letters From Friends of The
One Big Union
To The District Ledger:
The vote for the ONE BIG UNION
in Fernie was rather disappointing to
The District Ledger. In the first place
ther^ were only 5S3 votes cast when
there were over fiOO entitled to vote.
It is true that even that is a much larger percentage than usually can be
brought out for ballotting but never
was there so vital a question placed
before the workers as lhat of the ONR
B1C *:.\IO\.
And then there were   twemy.thr-f.o
who voted against withdrawing fro:n
the   international   and   forming ONE
BK! UNION and thirty.four who voted
against a six.hour day.     We repeat
that we were disappointed.    AVe knew
there were two   or three (maybe    a
half dozen) members of the miners'
union in .Kernie who are only in    the
union because they have to be, or think
they have to be.    We know that these
few have no more idea of what unionism is than they have of the indigest.
ibility of theology and at the same time
they suffer from the insane notion that
they are more "intelligent" than the
common working plugs.    Wo expected
that half dozen would vote "no,'' but
we are overwhelmed with   disappointment that there are thirty.four mem.
bers of Gladstone Local so inordinate,
ly selfish as not to vote for a six-hour
tiay so that there would be some relief
for unemployment and a wider distri.
bution of jobs.   We would recommend
that Gladstone Local try to pick   out
those thirty-four and have their beans
examined by a phrenologist,

RETURNED SOLDIER PROBLEM
IS AS YET UNSOLVED
During the past month an attempt at disruption of our Movement has taken place by the launching of a campaign foi' the secession from International Trades Unions and the formation of One Big
Union. This cannot in any measure be considered as reform or progress, but purely a secession movement which will result, if given
support, in division of our ranks. The international trade union
movement has been making rapid strides during the past year, over
three hundred new local unions ahd several thousand members being
added in Canada in that period. The present is the time when the full
force of the Organized Labor movement should be exercised, and any
action which will weaken our forces and delay our opportunities to
achieve results should be discountenanced. We do not intend to allow either outside or inside influences to work unopposed for the destruction of the organizations we represent and Federal Labor Unions
chartered by the Congress, Trades Councils, and Provincial Federations of Labor are advised and warned to take no action in support
■«! '■
of this One Big Union'propaganda which would in any way conflict
with the obligations they have taken, and the Constitution of the
Trades and Labor Congress of Canada. This matter will be dealt
with more fully ina further statement.
The solution of what is called "the
returned soldier problem" has not yet
been arrived at by either the federal
or provincial governments. Every

SOCIALIZATION OF WOMEN

ent ln Chicago, about the most talked
of proposed socialization of the 50,.

to those circulating the statement. Her
report is as follows: "Russia has a
funny paper tailed '.Mucha'," explained
.Mrs. Lomonssoff. It Is similar to
your 'Puck' or 'Judge.' Now when the
soviet government established tho re.
vised rules of marriage, moro strict
ln t'he protection of the virtue of women than the old laws, the anarchists saw their chance to pit tho
church against tho Bolsheviks—the
latter two being enemies of Iho anarchists. The anarchists begun to de.

marriage plan "free love.'   Tlio paper

•Mr. Editor: I note in the last issue
of The Ledger, the representations
made by-Rees, Livett, and Wheatley, in
favor of Industrial Unity, but against
the O.B.U. AH three of them would
like to pose as the Saviours of the
Working Class, ^hey talk and write
about the emancipation of that class
but are not.ready for it themselves,
which, shows clearly that they have
lost track of the labor movement.
They advocate a wait aud hope policy,
to which the rank and file is not listen,
ing.
'Wait, Ye Slaves, perhaps another
hundred years, because Rees and Co.,
are not ready yet to be emancipated:
wait until they are ready to emancipate you. If you want ham and eggs,
wait until they are sent to you from
the international office. That's about
the attitude these three gentlemen
would have the workers to adopt. But
behold, the worker has grown above
his leaders, he is desirous and deter,
mined to guide his own destiny and
knows perfectly how to go about it to
obtain his end.
Are not many of the resolutions,
which were introduced to the Calgary
conference demanding the full pro.
duct of their toil for the toilers and
the formation of industrial Unionism
instead of the old obsolete form of
trades organization ample proof that
the workers know what they want and
how to go after it? Did not the rank
and file speak through that confer,
ence?
If you still disbelieve, wait until
the ballots are counted and you will
be convinced.
Now, Mr. .Editor, I am bearing in
mind what you say in your invitation
about personalities aud certainly do
uot wish to Insult anyone, but I must
again state, that Rees and Co., have
lost track of the labor movement and
that the rank and ttle will not and can
not listen to them,
I direct your attention to Kees*
quotations of the 1907.1913 period;
the time when he was an actual work,
er himself or when he had at least
some vague remembrance of pick and
shovel. He quotes fairly correct but
when he comes to 1918 he commences
to swim. He does not quote from a
proletarian point of view any more,
ne does not seem to be aware of the
fact that the world revolution is progressing, that the whole world groans
with the birthpains of new ideals-
ideals which m,ust have almost swept
capitalism off its feet in Europe. He
does not quote the gigantic move of
the left wing in the States, leave alone
Australia or the shop stewards in
Great Britain. He quotes and lauds
the Sankey report but does not men.
tion that the miners of Wales have
rejected the report. Can you see the
•Menshevik Scheidemann leaning
Alas, another good man lost to the
rank and file.   But why mourn over
jwho was the most accomplished In
dustrial Unionist there and who pledged himself to do his damdest to bring
about an Industrial organization which
was supposed to mave short work of
capitalism:? Who was empowered to
call a general strike for the release of
Tom Shannoh? And who bagged the
presidency of the AF. of L? Of course
at the Hat, the worker only resoluted
which would put nobody in trouble or
danger.   Nuff said.
One of the Rank and File.
-O-
, Kimberley,'B.'C.," April 15, 1919.
To The District Ledger:
I would like to say a,word in refer,
ence to Comrade Livett's reasons for
opposing the ONE BIG UNION, and
to show, or try to   show, that    that
greatest industrial organization, known
as the A. F. of L, was, is, and always
will be, a barrier towards bringing the
working plugs together.   I will start
fronn the time that I first became    a
member of it   After the A. F. of L.
was first organized, it was advertised
very broadly,   as a one   big   union,
where all workers no matter in what
occupation they were employed, should
stand shoulder to shoulder, in   all ad.
versities.   It was one of the prettiest
pictures that I have even seen printed,
that is at that time.  Well, we all jump,
ed over one another's   heads to get
affiliated with it.    And after we were
in it what did they do for us.   We'll
see.    The first thing we knew was the
big strike in San Francisco.   I was in
that strike so I know what I am talking about.   They turned us down   in
that and the membership had to take
it into their own hands, but when they
saw that we were in it to win, and to
go it alone they kept quiet.   That was
in 1901.   Now we'll pass over a long
period and come to   the   teamsters
strike in the City of Seattle.  Did they
sanction that?    Not, on your life. But
they opposed it, and I am very pleased
to say that they won out.   We'll   now
come to something that the A. F. of L.
should not be very proud of, and it will
certainly show that It is their hobby
to keep the wage.slaves apart.   Four
years ago the longshoremen of    the
City of Vancouver went out on strike.
They   asked   the longshoremen      of
Seattle to assist thom by not handling
the vessels going   between the    two
ports, so the men responded by calling
a strike sympathetically.   They were
affiliated with the A.F. of L.     And
how did that work?   It worked    disgraceful.   The hoisting engineers, the
firemen and the sailors all belong   to
the A. F. of L. yet they worked   with
scabs, while their comrades were   on
strike, trying to hold up the principles
of organized labor.   Things like this
are too numerous to mention.     That
has occurred during the life of     the
AF. of L. which is supposed to be an
O. iB. U. and as long as there is any
craft unions It twill always bo so.
Do not think that J am trying to pick
out all of the bad points about it, for

Bridge Work
20 per cent off
^p* HE value of a properly constructed well fitted bridge is tkat
it restores to you the full and proper functions of your teeth as tbey
\ were   before   decay   undermined
and destroyed them.   The evil and
danger   of  an   improperly   con-
structed and ill-fitting bridge is
that it gives no comfort and is a
real menace to health.  Iu fact you
are far better off without such
bridge work in your mouth.   But
we give an absolute guarantee with
our bridge   work; it   must   be right
rom the start ks it would not pay us to do work over again.

In the future and under tx proper

them back every six months, before
they are Infected with that capitalistic poison and give them a thorough

need.
Mr. Rees mentions the knocking
from within, but what, chance has he
had of late to do any of that? To tho
rank and file bo resembles one of the
trumpeters of Jericho, who are mareh-
in<? nround tho citadel of capitalism,

But It Is not hot air from without
which knocks it over—it is dveds:

Cottins Defence-"Why I Tried To
Kill Glemenceau"
"We publish below a statement by Emile Cottin after bis
arrest following his attempt upon the life of the French
Premier
I wanted to kill the man instigating a new war. I am an anar-
cfcirt, a friend of the people, Germans not excluded, a friend of mankind and brotherhood. These words deeply penetrate into the heart
of every man. Clemeneeau is a tyrant, and a tyrant of the highest
degree. Clemeneeau is making; the fighters for the popular cause
rot in a free prisons of Prance. Clemeneeau is the greatest enemy
of tke great free-thinking people. No wonder he is called "Tiger."
But ke is not a tiger—he is a man. Prior to the March revolution in
Russia there were sent to the French front many Russian soldiers—
tke figure varying between 100,000 and 300,000 men. Reliable information it is impossible to obtain. They replaced English and French
troops in the most dangerous sections of the battle line; well supplied with arms and provisions they took the place of a large number of the Allied troops, which were sent to police different sections
of France.
Unexpectedly the revolution in Russia broke out, Russian soldiers fimmediately began to be insistent in their demands, and
created a Soviet of the soldiers' deputies, which was arrested in its entire personnel. Nobody knows of its fate up to the present. This
did not stop the Russian soldiers; they protested as a single man, and
refused to advance. Their superiors were infuriated and began to
threaten, but nothing could shake the Russians. At the "council of the
generals and colonels of the old regime, the tyrant-rulers, it was
decide to take the Russians off the firing line and intern theni behind
the bars of the camp for the interned. They were recognized as
enemies. But that was not the end of the sufferings of the Russians.
Terrible conditions, executions of the leaders, arrests of the conscientious soldiers—nothing could shake the firm attitude of the
Russian soldiers, who had scented the fire of the revolutionary flame
in their native land. They categorically refused to obey. Detachment after detachment was sent to the rear guard camps, where they
awaited their fate.       .    o
When the Kerensky government Jiad fallen, the sympathy of
the Russian soldier's was on the side" of the Soviets of Workers aud
Soldiers' Deputies. But in spite of that some of the detachments of
the Russian army still fought on the front lines. Russia signed tlie
Krest-hitovsk treaty, and those troops that were under the influence
of the revolutionary patriotism understood and decided to leave the
struggle. The last detachments refused to go into action, basing tlieir
claian on the fact that they were neutral citizens; they understood
ihe realitv of the war.   Their main demimd^vasJ(M^tflaLJtJL_lIxfik.

Clemeneeau, ordered suppressed. The order of the French government was obeyed immediately, aud many Russians, true sons of the
t'oW valleys of Russia, fell before the bullets of the treacherous
weapons of those cunning politicians. Many were wounded. Cle-
menceau's order "not to spare bullets" was executed according to
-all the rules of military tactics. With waving flags the battallions
of the free republic returned from the places of their crime aceom-
paiiied liy llie sounds of the "Marseillaise." A few days afterward a
I'Oloael was sent to the camp where the irreconcilable Russians were
kept, who delivered a fiery .speech. Ho spoke of revolution, of everything, and finished by an appeal to enlist into lhe unity to light against
ihe Bolsheviki. Twenty thousand men believed these fables tolling
them thai Russia was in danger ami decided to save Russia, They
were formed iiilo detachments and were sent to the nearest miliit-ary

(BY SEN KATAYAMA)
Since the recent rice riots the workers of Japan have been steadily asserting their power. In spite of rigid police rule and the use
of troops In strikes, mass demonstrations are occurring more and
more frequently. Demands for higher wages are being made not
through the agency of labor organizations but by direct action in the
form of mass strikes and labor riots which have proved very effective in the majority of cases. -■ '
Owing to the fact that the Japanese workers are forbidden to
organize in labor unions they are forced to resort to strikes, sabotage
and. rioting to improve conditions, and in these struggles they are
learning over night what their Western comrades have learned only
through many decades of agitation. Since the outbreak of the Russian Revolution the spirit of revolt against the oppressive government in general and the greedy exploiters of labor in particular has
been gathering strength until it burst forth in the recent race riots
and the continuous strikes and labor riots. There are still nearly
six thousand workers in prison throughput the country who wero
arrested in the rice riots. Many have been tried and condemned to
long periods of imprisonment and many are still in prison awaiting
trial.
All over the country the bureaucratic regime aud its supporters
are crying loudly for the punishment of the rioters to the very limit
of the law. -By this means the bourgeoisie hopes to intimidate the
•workers from striking and rioting, but the effect is only to increase
the spirit of revolt among the people's masses. The workers of Japan
have already glimpsed the power of mass action hi the rice riots and
the recent strikes, and the struggle will continue. The readjustment
ofuJapanese industry from a war to a peace basis will cause greater
suffering and unemployment than was the case during the readjustment periods following the wars of 1895 and 1905, for Japan's present industrial conditions are more advanced, more centralized and
have many more people dependent upon their continued operation,
It is estimated that over a quarter of a million will be thrown out of
work in Tokio, Osaka and a few other large cities during the present
crisis. Already there are many unemployed in the industrial centers
of the country and as the workers are unorganized the employers will cut down wages and dismiss the workers at their will.
But this will itself bring further resistance from the workers and
will develop the necessity of mass action in a wider sense than it
has already been applied in the demand for higher wages. Thus the
•whole situation is helping the workers to awaken to the real situation—and they are awakening.
The bureaucrats, terror-stricken at the recent rice riots, while advocating the severest punishment for the ring-leaders of the riots have
been attempting to organize labor unions dominated by the employers. These paternal labor ^unions are mostly taken up by retired
and naval officers as a lucrative means of livelihood. Among these
so-called labor organizations the most widely.known, and to a
certain extent well established, is thc "Friendly Society of Labor"
^=TtPAt-K.ai wliktlTis supported by the bourgeoisie. The president
of the Friendly Society of Labor is Mr. Bunji Suzuki, a graduate of
the Tokio Imperial University, who has been twice present at sn-

Weekly Letter On
U. S. Conditions
m
New York , April 10.—The ruling
class in the United States is redoubling its efforts to protect its
privileges and to safeguard what it
calls "Americanism." The American
Defense Society has just launched a
campaign to kill "Bolshevism." Tho
National Security League is busy with &
the same task. Tho Carnegie Foun.
dation Is making a nation.wide inves.
tigation to determine the best method
of cultivating "Americanism.'' .Many
of the papers published In foreign languages are very radical and, there,
fore, undesirable. Repeated efforts
have been made to drive these papers
out of existence. A committee has just
brought in a report suggesting tbat
all advertising for foreign language
papers be handled through a central
agency. The result would be a com-
-ple&^Btrei-ottto-emrafifi ana news
columns. The schoorBOard of Sche.
nectady, N. Y„ has dismissed B. H.
Mattingly from his position as teacher
able fraternal delegate of Japanese labor.
lie crossed the Pacific in a first elass cabin, travelled in a
Pullman and stayed at first class hotels in America. Ho was enabled
to do this because he came to America in reality as the private secretary of Baron Shibusawa whose patronage of the Friendly Society of
Labor has been the chief reason for its peaceful existence under the
Imperialist-capitalist governments of Okuma and Tcrauchi and the
present plutocratic government of Hara. He has been truly styled
the "Gompers of Japan," The only difference between the two is
that Suzuki's Friendly Society is not by any stretch of the iiuagina-
ings. In Toledo, 0„ the Socialists had
Planned a farewell meeting for Eugene
V. Debs, who goes to the Penitentiary
in a few days to serve a ten year sen.
tence. Tho hall In which the meeting
was to bo held was closed by tho
police. A riot ensued among the
five thousand people who hail as-
hiinbled for the puriiose of attending
the meeting. About 75 persons were ar.
rested. The mayor, in a public state,
mont, said tliat "Hereafter no meeting
will bo permitted anywhere In the city
whore It is suspected tliat a man ot
radical tendencies will upeak."

The Peace That Passeth Understanding
A FANTASY liY JOHN REED
Scene: The Salon de l'llorloge in the Palais d't")rsay, Paris—-
meeting-place of tho Peace Conference. At back a heavily-ornate
mantel of while marble, surmounted by a Clock, abovo wliich rises
the marble statue of a ■woman holding a lurch; by some called "Victory," by others " ulierty." "Eulijrhu-uineut." "Prohibition," etc.
'The Clock is tii'ty years slow.
The dialogue is carried on by each D-legate in. his native touyui:
—but tliis presents no difliculties. as all uudersTand one. another perfectly.
During the action of the play incidental music may be provided,
consisting of patriotic airs played softly.
Discovered': Seated at t'he Peace Table, President "Wilson. Premiers Clemeneeau. Lloyd-George and Orlando, and l'biron Alakino, 'the
Japanese Delegate.    As the curtain rises there is general laughter,
in which Orlando does not join.
' ''WILSON.—I  had rm idea the lower classes, were so extensive.
......    That, explains my speech at Turin.'   I said, ."The
industrial 'workers will dictale the peace terms.    .    ,"    (KenewocL
mirth.    Orlando looks sour).
OKLANIK) (gioomily). Corpi di Paced! Yes. You put me in
a hell of a Hn* I was forced to suppress that speech. We almost
had a revolution! Vou must remember that the Italian workingmen
are nut "educated—we have no Samuel Goinper,s,   .   . ,..-■*
LLOYD-GEOROK—(to Orlando). Oh 1 say. old cock! Don't
take yourself so seriously. They're always* talking'Revolution—in
England, too—but so long as we can keep them voting   ...   .
"CLEMENCEAU (to Wilson, with Gallic charm.) Saperlotte!
"What a man! And that League of Nations—quelle idee! At first 1
thought you some sort of* Henry Ford. . . Who but you eould
have explained that Balance of Power and the League of Nations are
identical?
WILSON. Yes, yes . . . >Iay I not insist that it is the
phrase we must strive to attain'? The advertising business i.s very
highly developed at home   ...
MAKING (with Oriental suavity). All the same Open Door iu
China.
WILSON (modestly). A trifling achievement. Why in America, my second campaign was won by the'phrase, "He kept us out
of war."    (General hilarity).
ORLANDO (pounding the table). Per dio! Thai's what we
need ia Italy! Couldn't you make another trip explaining that
Italian treaty the Bolsheviki published?
LLOYD-GEORGE ibriskly). Well, gentlemen, I am reluctant
to interrupt thisjileasant diversion, but I. suggest, that we get ■-■ to
work on what our American colleague calls "the solemn and responsible task of establishing the peace of Europe and the world."
(Laughter). I don't want io be-late for tbe Folies Bergeres: going
to the theater is another method of government which we have
learned from Air, Wilson.   (He bows to the President).
CLEMENCEAIJ (taking his place at the head of the table)
The Peace Conference will now cojue to order.   Let the room    lie
searched.
'.■■■'     * ■  ■ '■,-■*..*■* .■
 -H*l%r«—Rr4pj;/,tr-*u—l^^^ cni'tiiiirs. idanes-
Peace Conference is now safe for Democracy!
WILSON—Select classes of men no longer direct the affairs of-
the worid. but the fortunes of the world are now in the hands of the
plain people!      (Laughter).
■# .MAKING—-It is worth coming all the ivay from Japan just to
hear him!
CLKMENCEAU—Now. gentlemen, before we get down to dismembering Germany, fixing the amount of the indemnity and
stamping out Bolshevism, I should like to ask Mr. Wilson to interpret
some of his Fourteen Points. . . Of course we know it's all right,
but there is anxiety in certain quarters. . . RothehilcT telephoned
me this morning.  ..    .
For instance, will our distinguished colleague explain how ni
hell* hlft proposes to get around Point One—Open covenants of peace,
openly arrived at, after which there shall be no private understandings of ai:.y kind, but diplomacy shall proceed ahyays frankly ami,.ii>
tlie public view? ...
WILSON—Well, gentlemen, are we    not "openly    arriving'/'"
Everybody knows that we're holding a"Peace Conference.   .    .   .
And then the word "understanding"; that means something pr.iple
ean understand.   Assuredly it is not our intention to establish that
kind oi a peace!   (Applause from all.)
LLOYD-GEORGE--Point Two has been bothering the Admiralty a bit—Absolute freedom of navigation upou the sea's, outside territorial waters, alike in peace and war, except as the seas may be
closed in whole or in part by international action for the enforcement of international covenants, it sounded to us just a leetle pro—
well, pro-any-nation-exeept England, if you catch my meaning. . .
WILSON—May I not call attention to the fact that Great Britain consists of England, Scotland and Wales? "International"—
do you follow tne? r What eould be more international than England, Scotland or Wales? (Cheers and hand-shaking among the
Delegates, and especially among Lloyd-George.)
MAKING—As to Point Three—The removal, so far as possible,
of all economic barriers, and the establishment of an equality of
trade conditions among the nations consenting to; the peace and associating themselves for its maintenance. You see—our interests ia
China—our position in the Pacific—
WILSON—Really elementary, iny dear fellow. May I not direct attention'.to."the. innocuous phrase, "so far as possible?" Yoa
and 1. Baron, ave aware of the possibilities. . . And while we are
upon this subject, consider Point Four—Adequate guarantees given
and taken that-national-armaments, will reduce to the lowest point
consistent with domestic safetyr^Yhy do yotFthink V slipped in
"consistent with domestic safety?" (The applause is absolutely
deafening.)
LLOYD-GEORGE—Mr. Wilson must make a lecture tour explaining who started the War!
CLEMKNCEAIi--dust to clarify Point Five—about the colonies,
you aiiow-- '..-■'■■    i. ,   '
LLGYD^EORGE AND MAKINO.   Ah! >:
CLEMENCEAr—Exactly what does it mean? Free, opcu-
maided and absolutely impartial adjustment of all colonial claims,
based upon a strict, observance of the principle that in determining
all such questions the interests of the population concerned must have
equal 'weight with the equitable claims of the Government whose
title is to be determined. Of course I take it that this does not.
apply to Chinamen or niggers.   .   .   *
WILSON—I think an exception might be made with regard
to the negroid races and those Oriental peoples who are "incapable
of self-government," as wc say at home.
MAKINO—"Incapab.le of self-government"—what does that
mean?
WILSON—It is the p-njite term foy nations with large natural resources and no army or navy.
ORLANDO—Chinnmen and niggers, eh? Well now—there's Albania.
CLEMENCEAIJ—-Isn't there some doubt about the—er—origin
of the Albanians? The lost Hittites? Were tliey not a slightly tan-
colored people?
MAKINO—Or perhaps the Mongol invasions of antiquity. . .
You were speaking of Chinamen.   ...
WILSON—For the purposes of the Pence Conference, may we
not regard the Albanians ns Mongolian Tlittitos?
LLOYD-GEORGE (doubtfully)   Bnt the Irish—
WILSON (thoughtfully).   Tho Irish voto in New Yor\< is not
despicable.   If I were to run for a third term—
LLOYD-GEOflGK.   The Irish are very literal.
WILSON (brightening).   May I be permitted to point out the
idealistic phrase, "the population concerned"?   What is the "population concerned" iu the case of Ireland?    The English, naturally—
are very nuu'h concerned, too!
LLOYD-CiKOROK (admiringly). If I had only been brought up
ns a professor!
WII^gON—At this point allow mc to call your attention to the
faot thnt the I'nited States is also neemnlating ft few—er—shall wc
say "adopted children"? I Imve accommodated you gentlemen as
regards negroids ond Orientals; it is only fair that you permit me to
add to the list onr Lntta'Amcrieans..   .   .
CLEMENCEAU—By all means take yonr greasers.
TIIE OTHERS-Certainly. with plenture.
MAKINO (iliffldently).   A delicate question, but one full of interest to my Government—
LLOYDOKOnflK-And roine-
MAKINO—The Gorman colonies—in the Pacific.
(liKMKNC'KAl?—Arid in Africa—
LLOYIMJKOnGE (coldly). Owrmnn colonies in Africa? Really,
yon mu«t l»e mistaken   I don't recall any.   .   . *
MAKINO-Onr troopn captured a place called Kian-Chao.
CLEMENOKAIT—But that is in China, isn't itt
MAKINO (blandly).   Oh tio~-in Germany.

ape-mau discovered that' these la'tter
wi're evidently hewed t'r-uui roi-U, for
there was no craeU t« ludieate a joint
ior 100 feet the steps wound spirally
up. until at a suddmi turning Tarzan
came into a narrow cleft between two
rocky walls. Above him shone the
starry sky and before hhn a steep incline replaced the steps that had terminated at its foot. Cp this pathway
Tar/.an hastened aud at its upper end
eii'tne out upou tbt? rough top of a huge
granite bowlder.
A mile away lay the ruined city ot
Opar. Its domes hnd turrets bathed iu
the soft light of tho equatorial moon.
Ta i7.ti u dropped his eyes to the ingot
he had brought away with him. For a
luomeiit he examined it by the moon's
bright rays, then be raised his head to
look out upon the uucient piles of crumbling grandeur In the distance.
"Opar," he mused, "Opar, the enchanted city of a dead and forgotten
past. The eity of the beauties and the
beasts. City of horrors and deaths,
but—city of fabulous riches." The ingot was of virgin gold.
The bowlder on which Tar/.an found
himself lay well out in the plain between the city and the distant cliffs he
and his black warriors bad scaled the
morniuR previous. To descend its
rpugh and precipitous face was a task
of infinite labor and considerable peril
even to the ape-man, but at last he felt
the soft soil of the valley beueath his
feet, aud without a backward glance
at Opar he turned his face toward the
guardian cliffs and at a rapid trot set
off across the valley.
The sun was just rising as he gained
the summit of the flat mountain at the
valley's western boundary, Far beneath him he saw smoke rising above
the treetops of the forest at the base'of
the foothills.
"Man," he murmured. "And there
were fifty who went forth to track me
down.   Can it be they?"
Swiftly he descended the face of the
cliff and, dropping into a narrow ravine which led down to the far forest,
lie hastened onward lu the direction of
-tbe-sm8ke?-^Sti,ikia«-<he-f<M,*^tJs^edge
about a quarter of a mile from the
point at which the slender column
arose Into the still air, be took to the
trees. Cautiously he approached until
there suddenly burst upon his view a
rude boma. in the center of whicflh
squatted about tlieir tiny flres, sat his
Ofty block Wnzirl. lie called to them
in their own tongue. "Arise, ray children, ond greet your king!"
With exclamations of surprise and
fear the warriors leaped to their feet,
scarcely knowing whether to flee or
not Then Tarzan dropped lightly
from nn overhanging branch Into their
midst When they realized that It was
indeed their chief In the flesh and no
materialized spirit, tboy went mod
with Joy.
"We were cowards, oh. Waziri," cried
Btisull. "We ran away nnd left you to
your fate; but wben our panic was
orer we swore to return nnd save you,
or nt least take revenge ui»ou your
murderers. We were but now preparing to scale thu heights once more And!
cross tbe desolate valley to tbe terrible
city."
"tlnve you seen fifty frightful men
pass down from tbe cliff* luto tbls for'
eat my childrenV asked Tnnsnn.
"Yes, Wozlrt." replied Busull. "They
paused us late yesterday as we were
about to turn back after you. They
bad no woodcraft. We board them
coming for n mllo before we saw
thein, nnd ns we lind other business In
band we withdrew Into tbe forest nnd
let them pass. They were waddling
rapidly along upon short legs, nud now
and then one would go on all fours
like BolBiinl, tbe Rortlla, Tbey were
indeed llfty frlulitful men, Waalrl."
When Tarzan lind relntiil his adventure* nnil told tbem of the yellow metal bc bud found not one demurred

the chest of Professor Archimedes Q.
Porter, which he had once, apelike,
hurled in this selfsame spot, Witb this
lie dug a long trench, into which he
laid the fortune that hts blacks bad
carried from the forgotten treasure
vaults of the city of Opar.
That uight he slept within the amphitheater, and early the uext morning
set out to revisit, his cabin before returning to his ^Vazirl. Finding things
as he had left tliem. he went forth into
the jungle to hunt, intending to bring
his prey to the cabin where he might
feast in comfort, spending the night
upon a comfortable couch.
For Ove miles toward the south he
roamed, toward the banks of a fair
sized river that (lowed into the sea
about six miles from his cabin. He had
gone tuland nbout half a mile, when
there came suddenly to his trained uos-
trils the one scent that sets the whole
savage jungle'aqnlver—Tarzan smelled
man.
The wind was blowing off the ocean,
so Tarzan knew that the authors of
the sceut were west of him. Mixed
with thc man scent was the scent of
Numa. Man and lion! "I had better
hasten," thought the ape-man, for he
had recognized the scent of whites.
"Numa may be a-huntlng."
Wheu he came through the trees to
tbe edge of the jungle ..he saw a woman kneeling in prayer, and before her
stood a wild, primitive looking white
man, his face buried in, his arms. Behind the man a mangy lion was advancing slowly toward this easy prey.
The man's face was averted; the woman's bowed In prayer lie could not
see the features of either.
Already N'uitia was about to spring-
There was not a seeoud to spare.' Tarzan could not even unsliug his bow
and lit an arrow in time to send one of
bis deadly poisoned shafts luto the yellow bide. Ue wus too far away to
reach the beast in time with his knife.
Tbere was but a slugle hope—a lone
alternative. And with the quickness
of thought tbe ape-man acted.
A brawny arm flew buck—for the
briefest fraction of an instant a huge
spear poised above the giant's shoulder
-and tben tbe mighty arm shot out
and swift death tore through tbe Intervening leaves, to bury Itself tn tbe
heart-of the leaping Ilon. Without a
sound be rolled over nt the very feet of
bis Intended victims-dead.
Por a moment neither tbe mau nor
tbe woman moved. Then tbe latter
opened her eyes to look with wouder
upon the dead beast behind her companion. As tbnt beautiful bead went
up Tarzan of the Apes gnvo it gasp of
Incredulous astonishment. Was be
mad? It could not be the woman be
loved!  Hut Indeed, tt was none otber.
And tbo woman rose nud the man
took ber In bla arms to kiss her, and of
a sudden the npe-nmu saw ml llirough
a bloody mlRt of murder, nnd the old
senr upon his forehead burned scarlet
against bis brown hide.
Tbere wns a terrible expression upou
bla savage face as he fitted a poisoned
abaft to his bow. An ugty light gleam
ed In those gray eye* ns he sighted full
nt the back of the lumuspevtliiK mau
beneath lilm.
For an Instant he glan-'n| along tlif
polUhcd shaft, drawing the bowwtriuu
far buck, tbnt tbo arrow might pierce
tbrungti the heart for which It wn-i
aimed.

The:. next day Thuran was worse.
Almost constantly he was in a state of
delirium. They could do nothing to relieve him, nor was Clayton overanxious to attempt anything. On the girl's
account he feared the Itusslan—in the
bottom of his heart he hotted the man
would die. The thought that something might befall him that wonld
leave her entirely at the mercy of this
beast caused him greater anxiety than
the probability thnt almost certain
death awaited her should she be left
entirely alone upon the outskirts of the
••ruel forest.
The Englishman had extracted the
heavy spear from the body of the lion,
so that when he went into the forest to
hunt that morning'lie had a feelHjg of
much greater security than at any time
since they had been cast upon the sav-
age shore. The result was that be penetrated farther from the shelter than
ever before. '■■ „ "

dared not venture farther. Here, beside the crude ladder Clayton bad constructed for her, she sat looking out to
sea In the always surviving hope that
a vessel might be sighted.
Her back was toward the jungle, and
eo she did not see the grasses part or
the savage face that peered from be-
tween.  Little, bloodshot, close set eyes
scanned her intently, roving from time
to time about the open beach for Indl-
catious of the presence of others.
Presently another head appeared and
tben another and another. The man la
the shelter commenced to rave again,
and the heads disappeared as silently
nud as suddenly ns tbey bad come.
But soon tbey'were thrust forth once
more ns the girl gave no sign of per-
turbntiou at tbe continued wailing ot
tbe man above.   ' „
One by one grotesque forms emerged
from the Jungle to creep stealthily
upon the unsuspecting woman. A faint

LLOYD-GEORGE-Just a word about Point Seven—Belgium,

please return it or send it care of P.O.

asked, otherwise criminal proceedings
will be taken immediately.
Easter in the Churches^—Easter Sunday was remembered by all the Fer.
nie Churches. Holy Family Church
celebrated Good Friday and Easter
Sunday in the usual form, with its
beautiful services and a large atten.
dance filled the church both Friday
and Sunday.
The Salvation Army held special
services at the Armory.
Christ Church was nicely decorated
for the occasion and the special ser.
vices were very effective.
The services in the United Church
took on more than the usual interest,
being   the   first   Easter   celebration
since the organization of that church.
The ladies decorated the church with
a beautiful selection of flowers, yel.
low being the predominating feature.
Rev. C. F, Batzold preached two very
appropriate sermons and the choir,
under the direction of .Mr. Whitehouse,
rendered appropriate selections in ad.
dition to the regular hymnal service.
All the religious organizations drew
more than the usual attendance at
such seasons. All the Sunday Schools
had special exercises and all were well
attended.
Have New Club Rooms.—Tire Great
War Veterans have secured the lower
part of the Xapanee hotel for club
rooms, the rapid increase in the membership of the organization making the
old quarters too small. There is to be
provision made for a pool room, a
reading and lounging room, and
smokes, soft drinks, etc., will be kept
on sale. The central location will
make the new rooms very desirable.
Gilbert Sawyer is to be in charge of
the new quarters. Mr. Sawyer spent
nearly four years in German prisons.
He was with the Canadians who put
up the great fisdit at St. Julien and was
one of those who was overcome by the
Huns' first gas attack. Within six
weeks after his release out of Germany
Mr. Sawyer added forty.Iive pounds to
his weight. Before the war he was
one of the best football players in the
Pass and says he will soon be able to
get back into condition.
•Mrs. Joe Knight is to speak in Victoria
Hall. Before her marriage Mrs.
Knight was a r..urse in an English hos-
pitaL She is an enthusiastic fighter
for the overthrow of the system of
capitalistic production and can express
very forceful'.y and clearly the under,
lying causes of the world wide social
unrest of thu present day. Following
her address there is to be a dance,
another O.B.U. dance.

The Opening of the Grand.—On Mon.
day evening next the Grand will be
opened under the new management for
a wonderful week's programme. A
glance at the big advertisement on this
page will show something of the treat
that is in store for the people of Fer.
nie during the coming week. Douglas
Fairbanks will be the big attraction
on iMonday and Tuesday evenings and
the coining of Fatty Arbuckle aud Geraldine Farrar will also be hailed with
delight. Fairbanks will appear in the
newest photo.comedy "He Comes Up
Smiling" in which he has the part of a
tramp. "The Woman God Forgot"
which marks a distinct advance in the
annuals of the motion picture, will
have Geraldine Farrar as the star.
The musical features under the direction of Mr. Whitehouse will add to the
attractiveness of the performances.
On the opening night early in the per.
formance there will be a drawing for
the silk handbag which has been on
exhibition in Mrs. E. Todd's window,
the prceeds going to Mrs. Lento who
was bereaved at the time of the flu
epidemic and left penniless with a
number of small children.
The United Church—11:00 a.m. a
special service conducted by Rev. J. T.
Fergusson, D.D., of Calgary, and Rev.
R. \V. Lee, of Cranbrook, when Rev.
C. K. Batzold will be. formally inducted
to tlie pastorate of the church.   7; 30
Accompanied by H. H. Jenkins, of
Twin Buttes, Constable McNeill, of the
provincial, police here, went to Newgate a few days ago and located eleven
head of cattle, belonging to Mr. Jenkins, wlio is a rancher living near
Twin Buttes, Alberta.
The cattle, together with thirtylnine
others had been missed by Jenkins
since the fall round.up last year.
They were found In the possession
of Roy R. Reno, a young man of about
twenty years, who claimed them as his
own and had beeu trying to get them
cleared by Inspector McDonald. This
officer refused to clear the cattle with,
out a clearance from the B.C, brand
inspector.
On the arrival of Constable -McNeill
and Jenkins, the latter was introduced
to Reno as the brand inspector arid
Reno conducted them to where the
band of fourteen head were located.
Jenkins had no difficulty in indentify.
ing eleven of the fourteen head as his
own, the brand still being undisturbed
and no other brand appeared upon
tliem.
Reno, was brought to Fernie, and is
being held under ?a charge of knowingly having stolen property in his pos-
eession.
The Mormon Ranch missed 200
head last fall from the same range as
the Jenkins cattle were ranging upon,
and further developments may be look,
ed for in this case.
Reno is a brother to the man "O'.
Keefe" who was killed in a rear end
collision near Jaffray last winter on
the C.P.R. line.

A SEDUCTION CASE
The second case to come before
Judge Thompson at the present ses.
sion of the County Court was one in
which the parties concerned come
from Natal, and wa^'of such a nature
as to render reporting as meager as
possible in order to keep within the
bounds of decent consideration* of the
reading public. Suffice to say that it
involved a charge of seduction under
very strange circumstances but the
evidence was not sufficient to convict.
occasion and there was abundance for
all. The gross receipts were over
three hundred dollars and those who
are familiar with the good work being
done by the society are most pleased
with the success of the dance.
As a social function the dance was
the hit of the season and there were
many smart and fashionable gowns up
to the latest minute in style. There
were many of the returned soldiers
among the dancers, faces that have
been missed for several years. They
all seemed to enjoy themeselves
hugely.
