blessings of peace,, and has also concurred and is appointing Sunday.
July 19, for peace celebrations in all parts of the Dominion.

"Peace, Peace," when there is no peace; ♦.
When Mammon sits enthroned, ♦
And he who tells ot a world for all ♦
Is driven forth aad stoned. ♦
For there's little ot calm or friendship balm    ♦
Or Joy of a kindly fiend, ♦
Where man ia sold for a piece ot gold ♦
And bound In the chains of greed. ♦
t "Peaeev Peaco," wher^ there is no peace,
When the battle for work,means life,
And men-must tear at each other's throats
fiy the law of the club and knife,
Etor they gather slight yield ot the forge and field
Or spoil of the mine and mill,
And the pittance of each but helps to teach
The fear of his brother still.
Dist.18 Asks
For a Mew
District 18 Offices Raided On
Search Warrants From
"Peace, Peace," when there is no peace;
When themllllons shout, "How long?"
And the armies rise at the masters' will
To keep their kingdom strong;
Por the rifles flash and the Maxims crash,
And the gleaming swords descend;
And woe they bear to the hearts that dare
, Their birth rights to defend,
"Peace, Peace," when there Is no peace;
When the people drink salt tears,
And feed on their hearts that throb with woe
And break with the cruel years.
.For the children cry, and their mothers die
And the fathers droop witb care,
And curse each day In a dumb dismay
Till the night comes with despair.
"Peace, Peace," when there is no peace;
When the whole world reeks with war.
'By  the soul of man that awakes at lost,
The Director of Coal Operations
is still holding to bis position and
no statement has been made in regard toi his relinquishment
District 18 officials have signified a willingness to enter into negotiations for a new agreement
now that'peace has been declared
and the old agreement , become
obsolete. '
There seems to belittle desire
on the other side to qpen negotiations and there has been considerable quibbling.
A   direct   telegram   has been
sent to Mr. Armstrong from the
Board    and    Policy    Committee
which met in Calgary   this week
and up to the time of our going to
press no reply has been received,
A number of the smaller operators
are very    anxious   tn have their
mines reopened but President "Wil-
json controls very effectively tlie
Western Coal Operators' Association together with the C. P. and
other interests and they seem pcr-
Un.der the hope of ''discovering
a plot in connection with the strike
at "Winnipeg" there has been a
wholesale raiding carried on by
the Royal North "West Mounted
Police in Alberta and British Col*
At Vancouver the Labor Temple was raided and visits were also
made to tbe homes of Midgely,
Pritchard. Wells aud others connected with the One Big Union
movement. A search was made
in the offices of the Federationist.
Everything which carried the name
One Big Union^or which referred
in any way to'the radical phases
of tbe disturbing conditiona in
Europe was carried away.
In Calgary the Labor Tempi*,
the headquarters of District 18
and about a dozen homes were
raided and, as given out by the
mounted police to the Calgary
Herald, a number of publications
which are "prohibited for circul-
tion" in Canada were discovered
including copies of The Western
Clarion, of Vancouver, a paper
which has not been published for
over a year.
. At- District 18 headquarters
there was a scarcity of literature
but all letters whieh referred in
any way to the One Big Union
were taken and also the documents
whichi go to show that thc coal^
mine workers of the District voted
for the One Big IJnion by over a
ninty per eent vote. The District officials had no hard feelings
towards their visitors and gladly
relinquished to them full possession of the office, even the safe
(the stofy of which is told in a-
nother column.
When Robert Parkyn's house
was visited he urged upon the
mounties to take also a copy of
the Bible. I'm sure," said Mr.
P^rkyn, "that if you will read the
Sermon on the Mount you will
find some things that Ottawa
would like to put the ban on if
they have not already done so."
The search warrants executed
by the mounties" were made out at
Ottawa and included one for the
residence of Secretary Ed. Browne
but at the time of the raid Seety.
Browne could not be located at
his hotel and he feTt rather annoyed at having missed the visit.
Since he sticks close to his office,
however, the mounties felt that
there would be nothing very sinister that they could unearth in
the privacy of his bedroom.
Conies a noble fight, 'tis a fight for right; O
W©.are ready to our last breath; O
There shall be no peace till our wrongs may cease >
Though ve battle to the death. -4
Mounties Disappointed
Opening Safe Sent
From Fernie
How nearly *$e Royal North
West Mount.nd police, acting on instructions from the "statesmen"
at Ottawa, oame to discovering a
deep, dark plot for the overthrow
of Canada and thc establishment
forthwith of a dependency of the
Trotsky-Lenine government in
thii country is an interesting
story for District 18 reader* and
ctmbcially so to Fernie.
Some weeks ago Dave Gash was
seen to take a heavy iron safe from
the District ledger oflice in Kernie
and   transport   St to the   depot
where he billed it to 8e«retary
Browne, 316 Beveridge Building,
Calgary. Dave was innocent of
the contents of thst safe and the
combination was locked. He was
told that it eontained a vast sum
of money, bnt he had his doubt*.
Tlw word "Bolshevik" money
man not twed for fear it. mijrht
eome to the attention of Senator,
the honorable Gideon, whrme
chief end is to keep Ottawa "in*
formed" regarding labor.
The safe reached Ca!g»ry snd
ita destination. On Saturday lnmt
District Board member Frank
Brindley left for Calgary and took
with him the "eomWnatioii." On
Monday Secretary Browne. PriMt-
dent Christophers and Hroilu r
Urindley Irii'd to *n»nx the Mf<- but
the fombination wouldn't work
They Inborod diligently ovor tho
inspector had lived within sight
of the window thrun-t1! whieh it
could bo seen in the District Ledger oflice.      Ktnilthily after the
midnight hour thoy visiPid Secretary Brown's Kuhctum and Ihen
Ihey sent for' President (,'hrinto-

thumb screws on   "Chris"   ihey

and soon the door flew open, The
officer iuchucge of the squad fell
sure thst nothing   less   than   a
knighthood would reward him for
the discovery he had made and he
diligently prepared to go through
the   contents   of that safe.   He
found it jirst as   HeeMt-iry thud-
Carter had left it when he vacated

Fernie   some    three years ago.

Today, "Friday. JF. E. Harrison, assistant director of coal operations arrived hi Fernie with thej
intention, it iK^uiider^uod. of cap-1
iieity of President of the operators.
The active part of the work of tlie
director's office has been almost
entirely in Mr. Harrison's hands
for some months, Mr.": Armstrong
being nt his home on the coast.
Although the British Columbia
eight hour law led up to the present cessation of work in District 18 the British Columbia govern ment has evidently decided
upon a policy of "hands off".
The deputy minister of labor at
Ottawa has made the statement
that the matter is absolutely up to
the provincial government. Some
weeks ago it was announced that
Minister of Mines Sloan was coming to Fernie to look into the situation. He only got as far as Nelson and on his return wired he
would be here "shortly." Ho has
failed to appear.
Months ago the same minister of
mines   promised   in writing to
"shortly" commence the enquiry
into the Coal Creek disaster.   "'"
favorite word is "shortly."

HANSON and his boy bad ridden
directly to the clearing.   It was

boy's horse. Tbere be waited. It was
0 o'clock before be saw a solitary flg-

beside blm. Sbe was nervous end
Wben sbe recognized Hanson sbe
drew back, startled.
"Mr. Baynes' horse-fell on him and
sprained bis ankle," Hanson hastened
to explain. "He couldn't very well
come, so.be sent me .to meet you and
bring you to camp."
The girl could not see in the darkness the gloating, triumphant expression on tbe speaker's face.
"We had better hurry," continued
Hanson, "for we'll have to move along
pretty fast If we don't want to be
"Is bo hurt badly?" asked Meriem.
"Only a little sprain." replied Hanson. "He cnn ride all rlgbt. but we
botb thought be'd better lie up tonight
and rest, for he'll bave plenty hard
riding ia tbe next few weeks."
"Yes," agreed the girl.
Hanson swung bis pony about, and
Meriem followed bim. Tbey rode north
along tbe edge of tbo jungle for a mile
and then turned straight into tt toward
the west Meriem, following, paid little attention to directions. Sbe did not
know exactly where Hanson's camp
lay, and so she did not guess that he
was not leading her toward It
°AU night tbey rode straight toward
the west When morning came Hanson permitted a short bait for breakfast which he had provided in well
filled saddlebags before leaving bis
camp. Then they pushed on again,
nor did they halt a second time until.

As Meriem struggled with Malblhn
hope died within tier. Sbe did not
utter a sound, for she knew that there
was none to come to ber assistance,
cllpplffg Beia Ber attention.
Where bad she seen that picture before? And then, quite suddenly, it
came to ber tfiat this was a picture
of herself, taken years and years before!
Where had it been taken? How had
it come into the possession of this
niuuV Why had it been reproduced in
a newspaper? What was the story
tbat the faded type told of it?
Meriem  was baffled by the puzzle
that ber search for ammunition had repealed.   She stood gazing at the faded
I photograph for a time and then be-
I thought herself of the ammunition for
I which she had come.  Turning again to
I the box, sbe rummaged to the bottom,
and there in a corner sbe came upon a
little box of cartridges.
A single glance assured her that
tbey were intended for the weapon she
bad thrust inside tbe band of ber riding breeches, and, slipping them Into
ber pocket, she turned once more for
an examination of the baffling likeness
of herself that she held in ber hand.
s As she stood thus In vain endeavor
tb fathom this inexplicable mystery the
sound of voices broke upon her ears.
Instantly she was all alert They were
coming closer. A second later she recognized the lurid profanity of the
Swede.   Malblhn was returning!
She thrust tbe photograph into ber
waist Quickly she slipped a cartridge
into each of the chambers of the. revolver. Then she backed toward the

motioned the girl to dismount
"We will sleep here for a time and
let the ponies graze," be said.
"1 bad no Idea tbe camp was so far
away," aald Meriem.
"I left orders that they were to move
on at daybreak," explained the trader,
"ao tbat we conld get a good start I
knew tbat you and I could easily over,
take a laden safari. It may not be
until tomorrow that we'll catch up
wtth them."
But, though tbey traveled part of tbe
nlgbt and all the following day, uo
sign df tbe safari appeared ahead of
them. Meriem, an adept in jungle
craft, knew that none bad passed ahead
of tbem for many days. Occasionally
ahe saw Indications of an old spoor—
a very old spoor—of many men. For
tbe most part they followed tbla well
marked trail along elephant paths and
through parkllke groves. It waa an
Ideal traP ror rapid traveling.
Meriem at last became suspicious.
Gradually the attitude of tbe man at
ber side bad begun to change. Often
lhe surprised blm devouring her with
his eyes.
Steadily tbe former sensation of previous acquaintanceship urged Itself
upon her. Somewhere, eome time before she bad known this man. It waa
evident that be hsd not shaved for

commenced to cover his neck and
cheeks and chin, and with tt the ae-
nraoce tbat be was no stranger coo*
tinned to grow upon the girl.
It was not until tho secoud day, bow-

For a moment she eluded Maibihn
and rah toward the entrance to tba
tent, but at the very doorway nia heavy
band fell upon ber shoulder and dragged ber back. Wheeling upon bim with
the fury of a wounded lioness, Meriem
grasped the long revolver by the barrel, swung it high above her bead
and crashed lt down full In Malbihn'a
With an oath of pain and rage the
man staggered backward, releasing ble
hold upon ber, and tben sank unconscious to tbe ground. Without a back-
ward look Meriem turned and fled Into
tbe open.
Several of the blacks saw her and
tried to Intercept ber flight but tbe
menace of the harmless weapon kept
tbem at a distance.
And so she won beyond tbe ench>
cling boma and disappeared Into the
jungle to the south-
Straight Into the branches of a tree
sbe went, true to the arboreal Instincts
of tbe little Mangani sbe bad been, and
bare she stripped off ber riding skirt,
her shoes and her stockings, for ahe
knew that sbe bad before ber a Jour-
ney and a flight wbleb would not brook
the burden of these garments.
She had not gone far before abe commenced to realize bow alight were ber
ebsnees for survival without means of
defense or e weapon to bring down
meat, Why bad she not thought to
strip the cartridge belt from Malblha'e
waist before she had left his tentf
With cartridges for tbe revolver sba
might hope to bag small game and to
protect herself from ell but tbe most
bellowing, brutish voice the girl sought
some avenue of escape.
Stooping, sbe raised tbe bottom of
the canvas and looked beneath and beyond. There was no one in slgbt upon
tbat side. Throwing herself upon her
stomach, sbe wormed beneatb tbe tent
wall just as Malblhn, witb a final word
j to his men, entered the tent
Meriem beard him cross tbe floor,
and then she rose and, stooping low,
ran to a native but directly behind.
Once inside this she turned and glanced back. Tbere was no one in sight

discovered tbe rifling of his box.   He
| was shouting to his men, and as sbe
; beard tbem reply Meriem darted from
the bnt and ran toward the edge of
the boma farthest from Malblhn's tent
Two minutes' start of any pursuers
was all Meriem cared for.  Once in tbe
trees she knew that, she could outdistance and elude them.
Her hopes were high. They could
cot overtake her now; she had had too
good a start of them!
There was a smile on her lips as sbe
dropped to the ground to cross a little
tlve village surrounded by its fields.
The huts still stood in ruins.
The deserted huts were to ber all the
better because tbey were deserted.; Sbe

Impending danger she started up the

The Hon. Morison Huynes leaped to

As tbe two reports rang out Mulbihn

Kently into the bottom of the boat.
Haynes turned weakly iu the direction of the shore, to see Malblhn drawn
up upon his elbows, leveling his rifle at
lilm.   The Englishman slid to the bottom of the canoe as u bullet whizzed
[above lilm.    Malblhn, sore hit, took
j longer In aiming, nor was his aim as
j sure as formerly.
j With difficulty Bayues turned blin-
i self over on his belly and, grasping
his revolver in his right hand, drew
j himself up uutil he could look over
i the edge of tbe canoe.
Malblhn saw blm Instantly and fired,

But he was not yet dead. Again he

Bnyuea' face. Baynes fired again as
his canoe drifted farther downstream,

of Abdul Kamak, the young Arab,
"I saw," he said, "the picture that
you have just hidden. It Is you when
you were a child, a very young child.
May I see it again?"
Meriem drew away from him.
"I will give It back," he said. "I
have beard of you. and I know tbat
you have no love for tbe sheik, your
father. Neither have I. I will not bo-
tray you.   Let me see the picture."
She drew tbe photograph from Ita
hiding place and banded tt to blm.
He turned the picture over, and aa
his eyes fell upon the Old newspaper
cutting tbey went wide. He could
read French-with difficulty, it la true,
but he could read it He bad been to
Paris, He had spent six monthe there
on exhibition with a troup ot hia desert
Slowly, laboriously, he read tbe yet-
lowed .cutting. His eyes were no longer
wide. Instead, they narrowed to two
slits of cunning. When be bad done
he looked at the girl.
'Ton have read this?" b'e asked.
"I bave not bad the opportunity,"
she replied.
A wonderful idea bad sprung to Ab-
dul Eamak's mind. It was an idea
that might be furthered if tbe girl
were kept in ignorance of the content*
of that newspaper cutting. It would
certainly be doomed should she learn
its contents.
"Meriem," he whispered, "never until today have my eyes beheld yon,
yet ot once they told my heart that it
must ever be your servant You do
not know me, but 1 ask that you trust
me. I can help you. -Tou hate tbe
sheik. So do I. Let rae take you away
from blm. Come with me and we will
go back to the great desert where my
father is a sheik mightier than is
yours.   Will yon come?"
Meriem sat in silence. Sbe hated to
wound the only one who bad offered
her protection and friendship, but abe
did not want Abdul Kamak's love. Deceived by her. silence, the man seized
her and strained her to blm, but Meriem struggled to free herself.
"I do not love you!" she cried. -Oh,
please do not make me bate yoo! Ton
are the only one who baa shown kindness toward me. and I want to Uke
you, but I canuot love yonT'
Abdul Kamak drew himself to hie
full height
_ jTou^Hl learn to love me," he aaML
"for T 8hairtake you, whether yon win
or no. Tou hate the sheik, and ao yon
will not tell him, for If yon de I will
tell him of the picture. I hate tho
sheik, and"-
"Tou hate the sheik?" came a grim
voice from beJiIud them.
Both turneffto see the abelk himself
standing a few paces rrom tbem. Abdul still held the picture In hia hand.
Now he thrust It within bla hurnooae.
"Tes," be said. "I bate the sheik."
And as he spoke be sprang toward the

blow that bad felled lilm, now staggered to bis feet, shouting lustily to bla

A dosen blacks leaped forward to Intercept the hormeinau. only to be ridden

Some of the most pronounced
"Sympathisers with Labor" have
shown their sympathy by scabbing
on the postal employees. As these
same postal employees; who are
on strike,'mostly returned Vets
who had the sympathy of the
bunch while they were at the
front fighting for a dolar ten a
day, it seems a pity that the sym-
pathetis bunch are now showing
their sympathy by trying their
best to get boys out of a job after
their return home.
The C. P. R. following lead of
Ithe government, notified the men
of the Odgen shops that all men
who did not return to their work
on the morning of the twenty-
third would not be reinstated to
their former positions.
Out of eleven hundred men on
strike one hundred atad sixty returned to work, the others will be
fired.   I don't think.
Labor here Is disgusted with the
capitalist peace terms. "The conditions out of which came the old war
are there, waiting to make the new
war," says the London Dally Herald.
While the Jingo press, here as in other
countries, merely lament that the
terms are not harsh enough, all decent minded men are aghast at a
treaty which, as the well-known war
correspondent, H, W. Nevinson, says
"will reduce Europe to a barbaric
welter of misery and tribal conflict,
only to be followed by a nnlversai war
still more barbaric than the last."

Peterloo massacre—the popular name—sugested by the name Watcrloo~r
given to a disastrous incident of 1819. A large assembly ot Lancashire work
people gathered on St. Peter's Fields, Manchester (where the Free Trade
Hall now stands),to express their views. on the matter of parliamentary
reform, was, by the magistrates' order dispersed by troops of horse. The
lulled numbered live or six, and the wounded betwen 500 and 600—Nelson's
The distress caused by the war and taxation towards the end of the ISth
and the beginning of the lMh centuries, led to bitter discontent, and the
anomalies existing in the parliamentary system of representation afforded
only too fair an object of attack * * * The popular discontent was met by a
policy of repression.culminating ln the affair of Peterloo, which may be regarded as the starting point of the modern reform agitation. This was in
1819, when an immense crowd assembled on St Peter's Field, (now covered
by the .Free Trade Hall and warehouses) to petition parliament for a redre-s
of their grievances. The riot act was read by aclerical magistrate; but in
such a manner as to be quite unheard by the mass of the people; and drunker
yeomen cavalry were then turned loose upon the unresisting mass of cpec-
tators. The yeomanry appear to have used their sabres freely; several people
were killed and many more Injured; and although the magistrates received tho
thanks of the prince regent and the ministry, thoir conduct excited the
meeting including "Orator" Hunt, with Samuel iBamford and other
working men, were Imprisoned.—Encyclopaedia iBrltannlca.

The   High  Cost  of   Living
And What Is The
•   Canse Thereof
(Bj- W, J. Curry iu "The Critic," Vancouver.)
From time to time governmental commissions have in numerous countries
been appointed to investigate the high cost of living, unemployed ancl other
disturbing influences but so far no concise or satisfactory explanation
of these conditions have been made public in. Canada.' Many are of itie
opinion that these inquiries are made for the purpose ot obscuring the
issue rather than to solve the problems in the interest of the public.
The factors resulting in advancing prices are somewhat complex and
yet it is safe to say that the reason the public is still in the-dark regarding
this matter is mainly because the masses of population who sufffler from
this condition, did they understand the cause, they would take steps to remedy
the evil and in so doing would abolish the special privileges of those cuter-
prising gentlemen who profit oft' the misfortune and misery of the common
It is the same old story of the forbidden fruit, of tho tree of knowledge:
"iLest their eyes bo opened and thoy be as gods knowing good from evil."
It was a crime to teach the chattel slave to read. Undor the autocracy
tho rudiments of education were not possessed by ninety per1 cent of the
people of the Kussian Empire.   * " *. ■
Our world's unrest and suffering is all this result o'f ignorance, tiocia!
forces act just like natural forces, blindly and destructively when not understood but once understood they may be subjected to man's control and become
his obedient servants.
Understanding is the only sure preventative of anarchy, lt alone can
save Canada from chaos and so the class and our so-called statesmen who
deliberately cloud the issues of tlie day segarding the high cost of living
and unemployment will be the most responsible if anarchy and chaos should
overtake this country.
When men and women are brought face to face with famine and death
the law of self preservation, tire instinct to live which'camo iip from tho
flrst forms of life cry out; social and moral developments, which are relatively
superficial, fade away, and men when driven to tho last extremity become
once more beasts fighting with their enemies in the jungles for life.
This is the position to which millions on this continent are slowly but
surely being-drawn ..today, and if the master class was wise it would lose
no time in turning on the searchlight of understanding instead of crowding
this "under dog" to the last extremity. Were the privileged classes wise
they would be warned by the fate of past rulers and would do all in their
power to assist humanity to. pass quietly into the next phase of human
development, even the co-operative commonwealth which we must,.enter soon
if our race is to survive.   In this they benefit as much as the workers.
.Various Theories Advanced to Account for the High Cost of Living	
For many years a local school of economics which claims to be strictly
Marxian and scientific, advanced one lone cause for the continued increase
in the high cost of living.
Although this is extremely simple it is unfortunately unsound. It does
not today account for this increase in the cost of commodities.
This theory was that the cheapening of gold value in its relation to
other commodities was the cause of this and this was supposed to be due
to the discovery of such enormous deposits of gold in the Klondyke and
South Africa and In the cheapened processes of its extraction from ores
or alluviated deposits.
nW that gold has practically disappeared and that credit or "promises
to pay" in billions floods the world, It seems that this theory cannot function
aa the cause of Increasing prices and there are other objections to this
exploration as well.

™—XlfhoughTSiirFlse In the price of goods has steadily taken placo for the
last llfty years it has been greatly accelerated since the beginning pf the war
and this increased price Is partly due to the enormous demands of the war

The Dominion Day celebration
was a record breaker in the history of Pernie. Several thousand
people were in attendance from
all parts of the district, hundreds
of autos being in evidence. A
slight shower early in the morning
laid the dust and cooled the air,
thus rendering ideal weather.
The big feature of the days for-
mai proceedings was the procession whieh formed at the Central
School. The feature of the parade was the five or six hundred
school' children who inarched
through the city and returning to
the school were addressed very
briefly by A. I. Fisher, M. L. A.,
and by secretary Claridge, who
announced the prize winners a-
mong the floats and decorated cars
which made up the show. '
The Army and Navy League
float, representing s, man of war,
manned by school boys in the
Navy uniform, was easily the winner of the %at prize aud the ear
labeled "Fernie Wolf Cubs"' got
away with the prize for the best
decorated ei-?. ■ Spiieial menii-n
\v?s made of t;i i old carriage re-
presenting Co'or.ial times and.'il-
eld with young ladies dressed in
old time Costumes.
The procession was under the
command of Sergeant Pass of the
R. N. W. P.. a detachment of which I
headed the parade. The Btfgle
Band furnished the music.
Space will not permit of giving
the prize winners in the sports
contest. The three ball, games and
the foot ball contest between the
G. W. V. A. and the Coal Creek
teani attracted much interest.
The G. W. V. A. won from Coal
Creek team in a hard battle by a
score of 2 to.l.
Wardner and Fernie opened the
base ball battle and the home kids
won by ia score of 10 to 9. Then
Wydiff faced Waldo and went
down to defeat after a royal battle by a score of 7 to 4.
The closing game of the contest
was between Fernie kids nnd the
fine team of players which Waldo
brought'into the play. The game
was reduced to seven innings, owing to lateness of the hour andWal-
do won by a score of 7 to 3.
All the visiting teams displayed
clean sprtsmanship, and all were
loud in their praise of the plucky
playing of the Fernie boys. The
Waldo battery was, perhaps the
finest on the field, but Wycliffe was
not far behind them. The first
twirler for Wycliffe Went off the
mound in the middle of the game,
but the man who followed him
was knocked out of the box in one
inning by the Waldo 'batters. The
short stop of the Wycliffe boys
tben finished the game and showed
ah'lity as a pitcher, but he surely
shines as short stop. A feature
of the game was the grand slam of
the sphere out to center field by
the Waldo catcher, for a three bagger, but not being content with
that he tried to reach the plate and
lacked but a yard of doing so.
Scottie Wilson, of the home team
made a strike while second arid
third bases were full, bringing in
two tallies and geting second himself, v
Kastner umpired the first two
games and Kussoff did the last,
