First Aid Contest
Dominion Day
If August lst, 1908, can be.regarded,
as ^Fernie's black-letter day we think
that by contrast, July 1st, 1916, may
be known hereafter as the Red-letter
day of this community.
- Long before tbe time scheduled for
the First Aid Competition to be started
on the Coal Comfiany's lawn, cltitens
of all ages and Blzes were seen wending their way to the centre of attraction, and by 2.30 every point ot vantage was occupied by deeply interested spectators. The day's proceedings
were given the initial fillip -when Mr;
B.- Caufield addressed the audience,
stating that he was caleld upon to act
in the capacity of presiding officer
owing to the unexpected absence of
lir. Wilson from town. He then explained the object and early history of
the First Aid movement, jind also alluded to the encouragement that had
been given by tbe Provincial Department of Mines and for tbe .purpose of
providing instructions Mr. Dudley
■Michel!, well-known in this District,
' had been appointed as travelling Instructor, giving both lectures and promoting interest both In First Aid and
Mine Rescue Work. The number of
teams competing were eleven, four
each from Fernie and Michel, and
three from Coal Creek, and as a stimulus to the efforts of the contestants,
Mr. W. R. Wilson had generously donated three prizes of $50, $30 and $20,
respectively to be competed for by the
seniors, whilst for the junior teams
two prizes, one of $25, and a second
Iprize had been provided through the
courtesy of tbe Hon. W. R. Ross and
Mr. Thomas Williams, mine inspector.
As a preliminary to the field work,
three" of the gentlemen had been deputed to give a short oral address, and
he then called Mr. Stacey, ot Miohel,
to the platform, who "made a brief
speech upon the subject, thia was followed by an address from Mr. Walter
Joyce who gave eome Interesting incidents taken from Ms own experience.
&lr. William LancastefSthen spoke at
considerable length, giving ainost In-
s teresting talk upon the various sub-
j^ets comtag .within the 'purview of,
-First A|d work. A rather amusing
Incident happened whilst Mr, Lancaster .was tf.peakihg.    Mr. Spalding, the
" photographer,vin order to obtain a
good .picture, had climbed upon the
Fire -HaU building Immediately apposite and had jufit put his head under
the cloth preparatory to taking the
view, when * sudden gust ot wind

George O'Brien was the spokesman in
Dr. Bonnell, after complimenting all
the' teams for the excellence of the
work -performed, stated that the judges' task of determining who were the
winners was far from an easy one, and
that his,only regret was that jthere
was not' Bomo way of giving every
team a prize. He announced that the
first prize ($50.00) had been won by
team No. 10, of which Joe Hamer, of
l-'eir.ifc, was tbe captain; the contest
for second place was so exceedingly
dose that after consultation -witli
.Manager Caufield, it had been decided
to merge the second and third prize
and divide the amount, giving $25.00 to
each Ko. 9, Harrison's team of Coal
Creek and.J. Stacey's team of Michel.
Miss Wilson then made the presentation to Messrs. Hamer and Harrison,
each in turn expressing their pleasure
at whining midst loud applause from
all present.
As a fitting wind-up to a splendid
day's proceedings a free concert took
placo in the Grand -Theatre with Mr.
B. Caufield in the chair, and on the
platform with bim were Messrs. J.
-Biggs, President W. L. Phillips and J.
W. Bennett.
The first item on the programme
waB a song by R. Sampson, which was
most warmly received. An address on
flrst-ald work pointing out that the
Crow's Xest Pass district was in the
van regarding the percentage of qualified ambulance men and furnishing a
lot ot Interesting data was d'rivered by
Puc'ley Michel. Mr. W. Puckey's
comic rendition of Tt.ns-3 Tea brought
down the hous-5; Miss F. BaUrr delighted the audUi.ioe with a song, and
Mr. T. Biggs also favorc! with ivo
vocal numbers, whilst W. L.'Ph}JIips
and J. W. Bennett made remarks appropriate to the occasion. At the conclusion a vote of thanks was duly made
seconded and carried in favor of Mr.
B. Caufield, just as the whistle, for the
Coal Creek train blew .its warning,
with every body feeling that a
thoroughly' enjoyable and instructive
day had been spent.    \

Fernie, BC., July 2nd, 1915.
During the past few weeks many things have transpired, which have considerable bearing upon
the Labor movement of the country, and particularly that section of it known as thc United Mine
Workers of America. Owing to our cosmopolitan make up, practically all our organizations have
taken on an international character. The reason for same being too obvious to need any lengthy explanation, suffice to say, no labor organization could ever build itself up to any appreciable strength
unlesB it were an international organization. There are numerous affiliations and inter-affiliations,
said affiliations implying a very close friendship or fraternalism. The topic of conversation am^ng
affiliated wo'rkmen often centers around tho idea of having a common understanding, so as to have
all workers agree on a plan, whereby they may cense work universally at one time, Avith a view to
obtaining redress for the many ills affecting themselves.
Again, we have noticed many political congresses attended by delegates hailing from all the important nations of the earth, going on record, ''Re "Working Class Solidarity," "The Workers of All
Countries Having No Quarrel With Each Other," "In the Event of War a General Strike," etc., etc.
Vet, strange as it may appear, all such resolutions over which many of our brilliant, orators have'
waxed eloquent when1 discussing, have been scattered to the winds. Coming nearer home, we find
that progressive members of the working class, who pride themselves as being the intellectuals
among us, have entirely forgotten the spirit oi" Internationalism, whilst it does not condone their
offence by citing the fact that the greatest men. those who are supposed to lead the poor, ignorant
worker, have failed to keep inviolate their pronounced obligations. Yet we are compelled to ask
ourselves the question: If the cream of the labor world, who have attended congresses, etc., together
for decades, fall by the wayside, then can we wonder at those who have not enjoyed such opportunities following suit- The "J5. C. Federationist" in its editorial columns last week, commented on
the situation in District 38 as it affected "the aliens." On the whole their criticism is very fair,
but possibly unduly caustic. We should remember it is easy to criticize,, but a different matter to
sit down in a camp where trouble exists and act thc Moses. We have special reference to the
criticism levelled at the "Ledger," because they had the audacity to state "the citizens of Fernie
.... ." had taken certain action and not the U.M- AV. of A. As an organ representing irade unionists, "The Federationist" may liave had sonic little thought as to why the Editor thus wrote.
In order that the reader may intelligently follow, it may lie well to review what really happened in District J 8, which later led up to partial internment of "alien enemies."     The'mine officials at Bellevue laid off a large number of their workmen in order (so they said) tliat the worR*--
which was very scarce, might ke divided Up.   It s.o happened that the'ones laid off, on slopping

and hoping to get news about hhn, but
none came. He was a man, every

The order was also applied to Michel, notwithstanding the fact that neither tho mineworkers nor
citizens, thero requested that such action be taken- This finally resulted in 317 men being interned.
The question of accommodating such a number was not an easy task for the local auhorities, hence
the beat that could be done was place them in the Fernie Skating Rink. Xo bedding has been pro-
vided for fear of fire, tlieir breakfast consists of porridge, tea nnd bread; lunch, a fairly staple
meal; supper, tea and bread.
When lhe news spread throughout the District that Fernie had taken a stand against "ali'ii
enemies," it appears that a few men in some of the other camps vied with eaeb other in order to
bc on. par with Fernie. However, Hillcrest anil Coloman were Ihe only -camps to hold meetings
to consider the question. Coleman decided ho take no action, feeling it a question for the Government. Hillcrest citizens had several meetings, culminatiyu in a committee agreeing on a plan
later ratified by a mass meeting, which provided that work would be resumed (they having lain
idle a few days), the company temporarily suspended all unnaturalized "alien enemies." Hill,
crest people petitioned the government tw'have all unnaturalixed "alien enemies" interned. Thus it
Will be aecn that only two out of the 20 Locals comprising District 18 agitated for internment.

Tlu- wnnls ''alien," ''alioti enemy," "alien
friend." have been more'frequently spoken since
last Aujfiist tlian in the previous decade in consequence nl* their relations to matters discussed when
lhe topie of war is broavlied. Tlie ordinary lm-nn-
in-sr of the word "alien" is .foreign or'foreigner;
'•friend" i-arries with it the mental concept of uf-
JVi'tionate attaehment. whilst "enemy" conveysth-v;
direct opposite. It* we were to ask a definition
from one hundred people of. the quoted words
"alien," "•friend," and "enemy," we do not think
their answers would viiry in sense, although they
might in language, from those given. Ask the
iuau on the street what ''alien friend" and "alien
enemy" stand for and we feel sure he .would.reply
uu "alien friend" means today a man who was born
in a foreign country, but is favorable to the cause
of the Allies, and an "alien enemy" means a man
born in one ofthe foreign countries fighting against
llie Allies.
Strange as it may appear to the average lay mind
this is not the opinion'of Britain's leading jurists
when called upon.to give decisions in cases of litigation .submitted to them for consideration.
In the Court of Appeal under date of January 19,
191 "i. the following notables of the woolsack assembled for the purpose of determining some knotty
problems arising from the lesser legal lights not being able to agree regarding the interpretation of
"alien friend" arid "'alien enemy"—Lord Reading,
Chief Justice; Lord Cozens-IIardy, Master of the
Iioll; Buckley, L.J., Kennedy, L.J-, Swinfen Eady,
L..T.. I'hillimore, L.J.. Pickford, L.J. These learned
gentlemen made use of a large amount of language
in the discussions of the various law suits that
condense by briefly stating that they contend that
it is the place of residence and business, and not a
man's nationality which determines the difference
between an "alien friend" and an "alien enemy-"
An "alien enemy" is one who voluntarily resides
in and carries'on business in an enemy's country.
The Attorney General, Sir John Simon, K.C.,
Wits also called in to give an opinion on the question
and he stated that an "alien enemy" does not mean
a subject of a state which is at war with this eoun-
tty. but a person of whatever nationality who is
residing or carrying on business in thc enemy's
territory. v       ^ p ^ * \ -om
In aceqrdanee#ttf th the Opinions expressed by the
highest legal authorities in the British Empire il
follows that so long as any subject of a foreign
siaie with which Britain is at war does not break
any hnv whereby he may be regarded ns an enemy,
hi. is entitled to the same rights, privileges and pro-
tcetion exactly the same ns a resident British sub.
This is the judgment of the Court of Appeal, and
beiiu: s.i formally pronounced wc arc unable to un-
■(•'•".tan-l !t«.w any alien against whom no apceific
■•hitnre hns been laid can legally be held in a deten-
lion "amp.
Wc have heard the frtory of the individual iu gnol
who wu** visited by a lawyer and after hearing thc
details of the num** supposed crime, exclaimed.
"They •••■ ii*r pni you in gaol for thut, my good fd-

The opponents and proponents of Prohibition are
going at it hammer and tongs in the adjoining province of Alberta-
As the day approaches for the .final declaration
on the subject the argumentation waxes correspondingly stronger and zeal or fanaticism, whichever'it
may be regarded, grows fiercer. The advocate of
the liquor interests is quite eloquent in his .'dentin-,
elation of the infringement upon individual liberty,
whilst conveniently ignoring the fate meted out to
ii hotel-keeper who decided to purchase outside of
the restricted circle. On the other band, the mentally intoxicated prohibitionist works the „"so*l)
gusher" with all the energy at bis disposal, and
complacently closes his eyes to any evidence that
may be proferred pointing out that if the abolition
of the liqti'iiir traffic did result, as claimed, in,a 10
per cent, increased production, the exploiters aud
not the producers would reap the advantage,
Today there are hundreds of thousands unemployed throughout Canada, and to talk about in-
(••ic-asiiig production by adding to their numbers
shows that the average Prohibitionist knows as
much about economies as a Hottentot knows of history. * „ '*■
"Oh!" says the Prohibitionist, "if the drink industry is killed there'll be, more boots, shoes and
..clothes*, manufactured." That sounds well, but
things are not always what they seem, There may
be a few individuals who have'*heretofore'spent'
their money for liquor who Will use it for the purpose of buying other and more useful things, but
if the supply of these commodities in the market is
in excess of the demand the .manufacturers are not
going to overstock it still further. Again, the purchasing power of those thrown out of work has
been seriously curtailed and their absorption into
an industrial system that is in a chaotic, state is a
very slow process,
"Then." says the Prohibitionist, "you uphold
this tumble business because it means a living for
a few and misery for so many?" "We do nothing
of the kind, but point out the inevitable result that
must obtain so long as the Profit System is in vogue-
To all those Prohibitionists who will take'off the
blinkers of prejudice, and by so doing extend the
scope of their mental vision, we would urge them
to follow the suggestions of the late Prances E.
Willard, than whom there was no more earnest and
sincere temperance advocate who, in the closing
days of her life said, "Had I my time to live over
again the energies I have expended in combating
thc Drink Evil would be spent in fighting the Cause
and not t1rf~EffeeTcrfiinir^M~l:hTl*nFdre3~nrs~or
"Yes, yes, *' says our Prohibitionist friend, ''but
do you not recognize that the saloon interest, is a
very powerful influence wielded by the politician
at election times?" We do realize such to be the
ease on this continent, but there are other countries
where it is not so used and still we do not find the
great mass of people enjoying any better conditions
than those of this continent. There are other
means of corrupting the electorate than by means
of the saloon, this is used beeadse it is tlheap-and
convenient, |mt it is by no means the only method
that can he employed. We do not wish our readers
to have the impression that we do not know some
of the misery and privation wrought upon human*
by the abuse of liquors. We do, and we also know
tlm evils of child labor, sweatshops, unemployment,
war in faet we are well acquainted with the entire
Malefic family of Capitalism, hut we know that
Prohibition is not going to work the marvelous bene-
fits its champions claim for it, because whilst it mny

"I suffered for many years with
tertible Indigestion and Constipation. 1
became thin and miserable. I had
frequent dizzy spells and became so
run down that I never thought I would
get well again.
A neighbor advised me to try 'Fruit-
a-tives'. I did so and to the surprise
of my doctor, I began to improve and
I continued this medicine and all my
Indigestion and Constipation was
relieved. I consider that I owe my life
to 'Fniit-a-tives' and I want to say to
those who suffer from Indigestion,
Constipation or Headaches, try 'Fruit-
a-tives', Give this lovely fruit medicine
a fair chanceand you will get well tho
same as I did".

or "alien" have 'temporarily left their organizations for purpose, hence it is those who are follow,
ing their usual avocations that have a very difficult task to perform. No rational individual will
attempt to deny what we should do, but the trouble is that some of us have failed in our duty. That
being the case let us ask a further question: Inasmuch as a fraction of our membership have vio-
lated their obligation, are we justified in abandoning our organization! It should be remembered
it is very easy to destroy the work of many years. It may bo said that the disestablishment of our
organization is the proper thing at this timd, but if we are honest with ourselves we will admit that
an organization Is as necessary now as at any other time. We have never seen the time when
we felt ourselves immune from the vicious attacks of those who employ us, hence should we forego
the organization we now have, even though it is d'nly a semblance of what it really should he, the
oufcome would more than likely be ehaoa and confusion- If sneh is at all likely, we must avoid
its occurrence.
Notwithstanding the fact that some of our members have contravened the laws, there is tho
possibility of us cementing our forces as strong as over, especially if the thinkers in onr movement
get together aud propagate the idea of solidification.     Despite our mistaken, let us endeavor to
mould the thought of those who have for the time being faltered 5n their duty.    This is necessary
for the present as well as the future.   Wc should remember that the greater the cry for internment
or for any other thing detrimental to those our brothers who are now considered "alien enemies,
the more difficult will our task becomo when the war is over.    It is aa well that we plainly show

Those of us who have fortunately maintained the proper attitude during this great trial need
not unduly pride ourselves, but rather pity the ono who has blundered, and work incessantly for
the upbuilding of our organization. If in attempting to further the cause of organized labor we
fail, and find thc trend of thought against us, -it will be well to bear in mind the fact that in all
probability as time rolls on, our position will be acknowledged as correct, and will we not be amply
rewarded with the consciousness of knowing that we stood our ground against great odds in tha
years past, when we find the workers in general taking up tho same position as we now adhere to,
Remember, it ia easy to float with the stream but difficult to stand firm as the water rolls
by. Further, ahould current opinion waver to such an extent that it ultimately destroys the
effectiveness Qf our organization, consider the ease of mind you will enjoy when you realiize you
had the courage of your convictions and defended the principles recognized for years as moral and
proper. Lot evfry thinker, as afore stated, put bis shoulder to the wheel, and thus avoid even
the possibility of the destruction of our organization- Our present status is more or less pitiful
and requires almost superhuman effort to overcome, but it is surely worth the effort, especially
when we compare the organized fields with the unorganized in the United States and Canada.
Let us, therefore, determine we will not march hack to chattel slavery, but lot our alogan bo
"Excelsior." True our trials are trying, but once having endured them, we shall emerge from
this crisis the better for having been placed in the balance and not found wanting.
