The convention"was called to order
on time at io a. m., Jan. 15th, by
President Johrii Mitchell,. Vice-President I.ewis and Secretary-Treasurer
Wilson we're also in • attendance, and
all,told .there were over 600 representatives in 1 the'convention.
■• In point of ;numbers this convention of course did not rank with the
one held, a year ago at the . same
place, and,, which hast matters of far
ntrhing importance to call.out .1
\uy  large representation.  ,
- The . convention was opened -with
prayer "• by Rev. Mr. Clinton, pastor
of a local Methodist church, and in
the absence of. Gov. I la nicy,, 'was
welcomed to tlie State by Mr.  AV. J.
■ 'Wood, member of the State ,Railway
Commission, who represented the
Governor.  ....
1 Rev. Albert D. Haldone extended
greetings oii behalf of the Mi 1^1 trial Association then iu sessim in
iJ •  city, ,
; Mr. Theodore Perry, President of
the liidjanapolis 'Trades and "Labor
Council,' also spoke briefly, welcoming .the delegates to the city. _ j
- After the appointment ' of the regular committees, President Mitchc'l
read    the report,of the 26th    .-winiial
' coMvcntion of the American Federation of" Labor, and the report was'
.niade a portion of: .the minutes ol
the convention.
This report, among 'other things,
takes strong grounds against hii.i
labor and ■ iri favor of woman suffrage
aiid in favor of stringent exclusion
laws against Asiatic immigration.  Ii'
,. favors an income tax on an. increas .
ing scale, and in favor of an inliei
ftance tax  . '.The' report also    takes
, strong grounds against the abuses o)
tilt injunction powers of the courts,
and'"condemned '   the    violation -^of
- state and individual rights. -
» A report from the "delegates to' the
International Mining 'Congress held
in. London; England on the 2iuLLoL
.Tmie^lasl was'read. ''There were 12J.
delegates representing 1,841,200"trade
unionists present at that time, the
delegates.hailing from Great Britain.
Belgium,' Austria' and'America. ". ■;'.
Amongst the most 'important matters' passed upon ,by that body was
that of more? stringent legislation
for protection of the" lives of miners,
and-   an  increase of    inspectors   ,16
... properly carry out "such regulations.
,   A resolution expressing full sympathy
work tn do, if we desire to maintain
what we now have and to bring the
unorganized mine,workers up to our
standard.
y-To clear the minds.of all the mine
workers of the country and to strangle many falsehoods that are being circulated in regard to ray position on
the.policy of the United Mine Workers of, America, I desire to make clear
at this time, that I favor:
1. One organization of the mine
workers of the American continent: .
2. I faver the establishment of, a
national eight hour day for every person employed . in and around the
mints.
8. I favor a complete recognition of
our right lo organize in every mining
district m tho country,
4, I recognize that there are certain
local markets that naturally belong
to certain coal producing districts.
' 5.. I iavorgiving everv operator an
equal opportunity to secure his shar*
of the general markets.
I am opposed to placing an embargo on the development of the rvsnarc-
•58 of any coal producing state i'i the
interest of other states, and" this cannot be done if every operator is giv< n
in'equal opportunity of entering the
funeral market.
The United Mine Workers of Am
irica will be no better nnd no worse
han its members make it.-The organization will accomplish no.more
md no less than we'arc able. Our
jernian,ent success will depend entirely on bur ability to know when to
Insist on our demands being granted.
"' In closing this report, I wish to
itate that my personal relation with
ay colleagues has been of a pleasant
character, and to them I tako thiw occasion to express my thanks for courtesies shown. To the.members of the
United Mine Workers, I desire to".re-
!urn my sincere th'inks for confidence
I'oposad in me.
A close study of th;* proceedings of
.lie,convention shows that the great
irdor has developed into a careful
sonservative organization of men who
lo not become discouraged at tempor-
iry.reverses and that tlie power of
inlted effort is being more lully ap-
•ireciated by the rank and file ot the
' >rder each year/ ,
The United Mine Workers of America is the most compact and strongest organization of miners ever instituted, but it will need constant watchfulness upon the part of its' officers
^•md mr-mbers to increase and extend
rs power until practically.all.coal
miners on the continent, shall have,
been brought within its fold..".
It owes a great deal of its present
i' rength to the gffqi'ts^of such me'njjs.
-foiih~Mitc!ielirTToin Lewie and Mr
Wilson, with their hosts of-.helpers.
With  the continued efforts .of such
leaders the end will be success.
i,   President Mitchell intends visiting
District 18 during the coining month
of March, and his visit will doubtless
prove of immense vajue ty the miners of the district.  >
Everybody will be glad to welcome
so distinguished a representative ot
l:ibor, and to do him honor in recognition of tho services he has rendered
t'i the cause of union labor.

-^-For—some-reason-the~sweafing . ouF
cf an information was stopped, and
no further action taken. As a result
the police resigned in a body.-
Now, there must '6e''sattle cause' for
this action.'",' Policemen' -do ' not resign
their position without some , cause,
and it can be safely assumed that
they consider that they have justification in this case.
Mayor Bonnell has authorized the
publication of his version of the affair, which version will be found in
another column of this paper.'
It appears  that immediately   upon
notification, Mr. Ingram stopped the
games at his place. As,will, be -seen
by the Mayor's statement as' to the
Fernie Hotel case, he says he, advised the, police to withhold prosecution until the board- of police commissioners luvd been formed, of which
i:e would, by virtue of his olli.ie, „o
chairman, and ..he .would take the
matter up and have the noai'd take
evidence, etc.',, etc.
There is a wide discrepancy bet ween0
the, Mayor' prompt action in the case
of Ingram and his waiting .ioiicy as
applied to'the Fernie Hotel,' which it-
will be very difficult for him to explain to the satisfaction of the, public.    '        . :   '
The public' are laboring under the
impression that they are paying a'
police magistrate a fairly' good salary to listen'to the evidence in such
eases, as these,' and it will.be news
to them that a board of'police commissioners' should! be waited for to
do the duty devolving upon a police
magistrate appointed and . paid to do
that very thing.
The duties of a board of police
commissioners is to see that the provisions of the law are adhered to by
the.officers .of the'law; not, to sit' in
judgment upon cases brought by constables. ,
But'admitting that these commissioners are the.right parties to listen
to police', court.,.'cases, how." .wines -it'
that the Mayor ' instructs "or advises
in one case.to prosecute withouttheir
aid,  and in     ano'.her_hc_.admj.es—la.

and also the 10 por cont, advance so*
cured by the award as a remit of tho

a The Editor:
The developments of the last few
days in police circles have shown ,,a
remarkable state of affairs.. ,     "
His-Worship the Mayor, with characteristic impetuosity, has piit his
foot in it and, in atu-mpling to make
fi.sh of one-and fowl of another, .has
driven the entire police force to adopt
the ■ citly Honorable cuurs-j and resign
as a protest against tho high-handed
action of the Mayor in frustrating
the course of justice.
Does the Mayor know whalo he i.s
doing in , preventing the execution of
llie law, or is he like tlie sovereign'
of a great people,-above the law and
able to ignore it with impunity?
Or is there a more shameful limine behind the. step lie lias taken,
and is he the mere instrument or tool
of someone who-.stays di.scretly in
the background,'and who by reason
of control, financial or 'otherwise,' lie
eaercises over liim, forces,him to do
his bidding?
His most, hitter enemies would hesitate to accept "the hitler alternative,
but is it not the most natural explanation?
" When Mayor Boiineil "as a police-
commissioner instructed the chief of
police to notify Mr. Ingram and the
hotel proprietors . that ■ gambling
must cease, ne performs a. "commendable act," although under the circumstances it savors.of discrimination.'
But .when Mayor ltonnell as a police
commissioner " refuses to proceed
against tlie proprietor of the Kcniic
Hotel for, allowing gambling on his'
premises, ' he stultifies himei-lf nnd
lays himself open to the grave charge
of favoritism.- •   ,.
What would have been his course
'if Mr.-Ingram had been the offender
instiad of' Mr. "Wallace? "It is -not
necessary lo answer this " question;
but we may lie sure he would m;t'
have, gone out' of, .his way to "stay
proceedings. .- ,
Previous to the accession of Mayor
Bomull gambling hail not been . regarded as an offence to the people of
Fernie, ns very little was going on,
and—r-who'-should—know""CUTS llctter"
ehan our present Mayor?, '        '   ,
But presto! There i.s a change as
so'in as he is firmly ensconced in the
mayoralty seat, and gambling ' must
ciilfcc, particularly at'Mr. .Ingram's."
Why?- Not from an .overwhelming
moial reason,- but because Mr. Ingram had ■ not been a supporter of
Dr. llonneH's in the late contest, and

That the police were fully within

THE MAYOR EXPLAINS
Mayor Bonnell,   who by  virtue "of ■'
ollice as.Mayor, will be chairman   of'
the new Board   • of. Police    Commissioners when gazetted, -was asked by .
a I.edgcr. reporter .why the police had
'esijfiied,      and    replied:   "I   cafnnot
give- the exact  reasons,  because  their
letters of resignation gave none.",.   "'
.It is said that you as chairman of,
Ih* - Board of    Police Commissioners •■
refused to take action     in the prose-    -'
cution of men.found playing.poker, in
a city hotel, .'Is that true?" ' ','-. .■'■
"That-   is all  rot, because; I. have
not  the powet tb take such,a stand,"
even were I so disposed,  which*I am .'_
•■ertainly     not,    as my action    will
nrove." -   ' *      -       .
'-1Th^fc^i~no"*Boarcl. ofoPolicetCommissioners, i aiid consequently there ,
cm be no chairman.' The old Board ,
went out--of o'flice with the " told
council; and until "the goyernor-in-
rouucil "appoints two other commis-
siiJiKrs there is no Board.' When he
does so I will be chairman,., and a
quorum of two can-dispose of' business brought before them.
It does not need- instruction; from ,
the  Board for police who have    sufficient  evidence^ to   prosecute  anyone,
"It is'their DUTV   to .prosecute'.!'
• What, is'true is that the police asked "my. advice in reference to "pulling
this poker game"   which Was. carried   .-
on   iu    one of ■ the city hotels,    and
when I was brought into the matter,
my    advice was to   wait until    the
Board  of  Police  Commissioners   Was
properly formed.   I  pointed   out  the
fact, that the    hotel man    was   one
who could not run awiiy and    leave
thu    town, and     we could put    our
hands upon liim ut any time, and to
simply let the matter stand until thr
.'oiiimissioners    were appointed^ mid
then we would get together and take-
definite action in the matter,"
""All I ask of the public of Kernie

RETROGRESSION.
That great slogan raised like a
voice in the wilderness. "Leave well
'enough alone" no doubt had its effect
on many a thinkless mind during the
close of the',campaign.   If that cry
" had been heard and heeded from the
days  ot  Adam  to  the present the
human race would be just where it
b,'gau so far as progress is concerned
and the senseless cry of "Leave well
enough alone" would be resronsible.
Nothing in this little world is well
enough if it can be improved and he
, who imagines that the government
ol this province don't need improving
to  art'almost  unlimited   extent, is
certainly. in want ot a great deal ol
mental improvement.
Tlie fact the government has been
sustained proves only that the opposition to it was hopelessly divided and
the light vote,, compared .to the
population, (i speaks volumns for the
apathy of the people" in the matter
of public affairs. Here, in the Fernie
district, out of a registration oi 1700
less than 700 votes were polled and
alter a juggling trick, by whicli the
Liberal party was hopelessly swamped, Mr. Ross succeeded in securing
30 or 40 more votes than he did three
„ years ago. .This will be called a
great conservative victory but in
reality'it means, that having tlie
.machinery' of government to back
him and the obliteration of r.be liberal,
party through the backdoor, dealings of corporate friends he failed to
receive the endorsatlon of anything
like the legally qualified; voters of
the district. Practically the government have scored a victory here and
that is all that .such a government
requires. "How it obtained,this practical result does not concern them.
The people of this district are to
blame for the result. Every man
should exercise his right to franchise.
It is nod'only a right bat a duty he
owes to himself, his neighbors and to
the province. J

ust, 181)5, ihey quietly absorbed Spring-
bill mines, which has an-annual output uf 650,000 tons of coal. They .own
a fourth of llie Dominion mine at Pic-
tou, wilh an'annual output of 250,000
tons. <They are very .'large stockholders
in the Joggins River Herbert and Mac-
can coal mines.' They are very large
shareholders in the coal mines of Cape
Rreion county, and made a bard dicker
for'suine'of the coal fields of Inverness.
Their aim has been to control the se.i-
board coal of Nova Scoiia, and they succeeded.     ■ a   '   " "    "
It is well known   that a tacit agree-
<>        -       „
ment exists between the home government and the Canadian Pacific Railway
to the effect that in the event.of Great
Britain being drawn into hostile complications with any foreign nation, the
C. P. Railway, including its magnificent steamship service, would immediately become available as an English'
auxiliary for the transportation of soldiers and the munitions of war. That
such an understanding does exist between the home government and the C.
P. R: is quite apparent. If we remember llie questions anent the C. P. R|,
addressed to the British House of Commons by Sir J. Glomb in June, 1892,
and tbe answer to those questions' by
Lord Hamilton, fir>t lord of the admiralty. This being so, sooner or later the
C. P. R. must establish a fast continuous service on' the shortest possible giv
en line to the Orient, with a terminus
among the seaboard coal fields of Cape
Breton and connection with. Newfoundland.
The question is where will they find
a, winter port al which to establish their
terminus? ° That. Louisburg is under
consideration' there can be no' doubt.
Will the government delay an extension
of the I. C. R. until all the available
sites have been secured?
' A government that redeems its
pledges and enacts wise and just laws
for the guidance and protection "of the
people and provides the necessary, machinery.for enforcing, these laws, must
go a'step further and provide all necessary means for a free, reasonable and
untrammelled system of communication
and the best facilities''for .thV shipment
of the nation's products. 'In no other

Halifax Herald.
Glace Bay, Jan. 25.—This is a railroad age. In all parts of the world
wherever legitimate business enterprises,will permit, with a promise of fair
financial return, three railways are being pushed with a rapidity which is
simply astonishing,'
Why the I, C. R. does not extend its
railway 'from Sydney to Louisburg is,
(o say thu least, puzzling,
It is thirty-nine miles from Sydney to
Louisburg. The I, C. R. could be sx-
tended from Sydney to Glace Bay, and
from Glace Hay to Louisburg via l'orl
Morien, taking in all the collieries on
the route. Glace Hii'y is only fifteen
miles from Sydney. The projected road
would run through a piece ot level lam'
uncultivated nud unsuitable for cultivation; there would be no expensive
bridges, nor would there be any daep
nuttings, These are ideal conditions
- for building a railway.
Dominion One Ims a population «f
3,000; Glace Hay, 15,000; I'ort Morien,
j,ooo, and Louisburg ubout 2,000. Approximately these four places aki'nu have
u population of ao.ooo. There Is more
money earned and spent in this section
of the country than in any other section
of its sl/e iii the  Dominion of Canada,
In the western portion ol'ihe province
of Nova Scotia there is Ihe Midland, ll.e
D, A. R, from Windsor In Yarmouth,
and the I. C, R,; and in Northern Cape
Hri'ton we have the Inverness nnd the
Richmond, Ihe South Shore und pro-
jccied Gulf Shore Hue. With nil iheie
for the north, surely the eastern aide,
with Hi lurgo populalioii'-iind vast coal
fields rich in the potentiality of wealth,
should receive some consideration nnd
protection from llie Kovernmeiii, which
Il has so ardently supported,
There nro large coal deposits lying to
the Kul .)< l.'.,ww <Jj_, ,u,u cMcnJing to
Lmilsbur/f. Tliru- mc sibjul Ut ,V J,.
vclopcd and will bring in .1 huge population nnd will he a means of im rea.seu
wealth. Three harbors can be lapped
by Ihe 1. C. R. uu the extended line,
Glace Hay, Port Morien and Loui»hurg,
the hitler two being open all the year
round, nu mailer what the climatic
conditions may be. Al a very early cUy
thine will be found necessary for llie
handling of increased Ironic. The cost
of "iccbreiitorV' and other devices to
keppunwliabh'harbor* open would pi
far towards building (lie new exttm-in..
If Ihe lilterioloriiul r.iilway was ex
landed, as outlined above we coulJ
have uninterrupted daily mail and train
•mice from Halifax and the west, und
passengers going from here abroad
would not be compelled to remain over
night in S)du«y,
Apart from other reasons the govern-
combines, and they must always be,in
opposition.'to combines, because their
interests arc hot identical.        '   -
t 1 ,
Viewed in this light, Louisburg, and
not Sydney, is tbe proper terminus'of
the Intercolonial railway; and it would
be': wise for the people in this section of
the country to immediately petition the
Dominion Government, praying that th
I. C. R. be extended from Sydney to
Louisburg. Rest assured you are well
within your rights and in a good posi
tion to press your demands.

Gentlemen,—I feci it my duty to ad Tlie yon
ot the remarkable cuio *ffettea by your Piychine
and Oxomulsion, which have come under my
personal observation. Three men, well known to
me. Albert Townscnd, Hazel Illpaon and John
McKay, all ot. Slielburnc County, were pronounced by the beat medical men to havo
consumption, and to be Incurable and beyond ths
reach ol medical aid. They u«cd Psychine nnd
Oxomulsion and they are now in rood health.
I (eel It a rtutr 1 owe to suffering humanity to
etate these facts 'for tha benefit of other sufferers
from this terrible disease. -°
Yours very truly. '    »

McGinnis hau  uo,i'hililron, though he
Imped to have, soliiij day.
And his wife who ''st'cu ln<r duty" was

"Has it got thu union label?   Show it to

Now, Joseph A. Melnuis was a man of
good repute,   . '
He went to church on Sunday in hit,
union tailored suit;
Like many other union men  he led a
'blameless life, ' . '
And when  he died the neighbors said,
"The blow will kill bis wife."
He reached the pearly gates on time, as
upright spirits do;
"Welcome," was looter's greeting, "and
I have a harp for you-"
