To the'Editor oi- thic Ledger:
I notice in a recent issue of the Free Press a letter from  Mr.  W.   R.   Ross (afterwards produced in .pamphlet form) in which.he makes statements regarding" myself and
In the first place I have never charged'Mr. Ross with opposing the bill  in question (he
and then absenting themselves from the House when a bill is in Committee is too coarse ;
method of doing business to deceive any ordinary observer, It may be good politics but
where do the people come in. I was not wholly unprepared,'for the change of front of
certain members including Mi\ Ross, for when in Victoria as a member of a cWogation"to
secure support for the bill I observed a prominent official of the Crow's Nest Pass Coal
Company in the corridors of the House, directly after the second reading and was perfectly
satisfied as to his business. Mr. Ross slates that I "saw a number of members of the
House and enlisted their support" but I "r//V/ not astern/..11m sumo courtony'lo him".
This is an absolute falsehold and he knows it for he did not attempt to deny it at Coal
Creek, where, at his own meeting I charged him wilh making this false statement.
Victoria. He claims these amendments were trifling matters, I claim that nothing is
triflying that tends to-save life and limb and if the Miners of this district have to give two
years' notice to their Member of Parliament as to what lliey want in the way of legislation
of this kind it i.s high time they got busy. In the matter of Open Towns Mr. Ross has
suddenly discovered that something ought to ho done hut very discreetly omits to pledge
himself to do anything. So far as the outside world is aware, he has sat for over three
years and never opened his mouth on this matter. This is no worse an evil now than it was
three years ago. Whythis'maslerly silence? Mr. Ross is being made painfully aware
of the fact that his constilutents have not been all asleep this past three years and unless I
mistake their temper, will, on I'eby. 2nd, relegate him to that private life that he so well

Dr. Williams' l'ink 1'ills feel bright,
