that G. G. S. Lindsey will retire alr

company.—Victoria   Week1.'
On reading this announcement The

for confirmation and received the following reply: "Absolutely no truth
in  reported retirement."—Daily STe»ys
The complaint of G. G.'S. Lindsey
against the public interest that forced an early settlement of the ' coal
miners: strike, is ample, justification,
if any more were needed, for the
charge made by the miners and , the
l)0.ird of trade delegates, that .lie was
the chief cause of the strike and the
clii?f obstacle in the way of "settle,-
ment. Even yet he appears," not' to
realize that,the interests oLa million
people between Winnipeg and the Pacific are more important .than his personal gratification, in a victory over
his employees. It will l>e geniri.iy
regretted throughout British,, Colium-

UNING.     :
- Tha little, city of Fernie, with.her
i.cant two -years.oilmunicipal li***, has
had in that short career experiences
which come to) few organized coni-
Through baptisms oi death-dealing.
exploaions,. of devastating fires and
strife-breeding strikes, she has steadily grown till she, ia the largest
town in Eaat Kootenay, with tlie
bright prospect of still greater
growth' with less contention lying
invitingly.-.before  her.
Through- the most obstinate opposition'to real civic liberty, she has
been fighting a life-and-death strug-,
gla for her right. to govern hersjlf independently of private interests sin-J
organized • commerciallism..  '
In tbe very hour of her birth she
was compelled to-struggle as au infant for her right to live against
powerful- foes from without, while be-
, ing , advised by , misguided ' friends or
treacherous enemies from ,. within.
,, Some bail entries in indelible black
have been placed upon the -record o!
her civic book of,life, but so far her
record oi franchise giving has been
kept -white as the -driven snow upon
the mountain,' and her citizens' *are
becoming conscious of their responsibilities aud' their opportunities;
their power when properly directed to
defend their civic . interests against
the murderous attacks "of private
greed ' which, if not checked, grow
like noxious weeds in - a. neglected gar-
deu, until all hope of redemption has
■  passed. ' ■<_
At  times  it hns  looked  as  though
the "'evil      councils   ,of * selfish    greed
,   would  triumph over our fine " young
city' .and' bind her,  while yet*1 in her
infancy, to years of servitude, accooir
• panied   by- the ' degrading" civic    immorality which  is the twin sister of
. "commercialization  in  municipal  man-
"ajyement:   Her  self-respect,   her   inde
pendence  were ,   tried    to    the uttermost/ 7       -    a        '
The oft-repeated attempt to make
public interests subservient to pri-
viite greed was being worked 'out,in
our youLhfulness as a city.   '
'lhe '-'hand of fate which .began to
rock 'the' cradle in which the little
infant Fernie lay in her helplessness
was a^cruel haud." ,It~was" the strug-"
* gle of the' mite against the giant
might. *■_
Fernie's fight Ior her civic rights
has been as lull of bitterness and
trouble as has L-een the battle against
fires, strikes and explosions.
The fires, the explosions and the
strikes have left scars upon tlie
physical construction ' of "our city
which  time only can  heal.
The scars left by the conflict between right and wrong in our municipal battles are oa deep and will be
as lasting as .those physical scars. It
is the task we have before us to heal
those scars and wounds. The Ledger
says |*) ol good cheer; there is light
No people possessing knowledge und
tlu:' love of freedom .which, ia. the, heritage most dear to Anglo-Saxon people, can be made willing l>earers of
burdens for others, and tlie people of
our little city will prove themselves
worthy members of the race.
Blessings do not "always come
lalislcd as such, and these struggles
through which our city has passed in
its infancy may prove to 1-e blessings,
though deeply disguised in the wrappings  of discordant conflict.,
li.*!plosions, fires, strikes and municipal warfare have combined to draw
up-in us the ga/o of a whole nonunion, and has made of Fernie one ol
tliu muni-talked of towns ' in the.
country. Some of these l-attlcii licve
grown' to be of far more tlmn 7..'til

' :Moat of us doubtless,imagine,-that
a'he'loss of life in a coal mine ex-'
iplosion is caused by the firing of in-
. .flammab.e, gases.- This happens com-
•paraUve.y rarely. The gas explosion
-itself is "-usually quite -a small matter.   It^is the  dry  coal dust    mixed
■ with air that is the' real explosive
'agent, and it is to prevent .this dan-
: :gar that-dusty, seams.are so.,'carefully
watered.     Biit 5 even
so,    the  total
• 'death roll in a- bod accident is due"
to other causes - than the whirling
fblast'of the explosion. Many bodies
)are found .quite unscorehod, and lying
iquJetly as if in a . peaceful sleep.
, What adds to the deception,. is that
nke cheeks and skin are generally
■pink, and have none of the . taaden
jpallor, of, death. '■       ...
For a long time this phenomenon
iv'as a mystery, But now it is known
laat men presenting- this appearance
1 "have been killed by a poisonous gas
.of which the scientific name is'carbon
monoxide. - „.
, Carbon monoxide must not be confused WiUt carboalc add gas—thc.suf-
. locating gas which i.s given out Trom
•the humnB lungs, ■■ and' which lends
"stuIllness'" to a crowded rooin.
While the, latter gus.is only sullricat-
iug in its action, the former is 11
deadly poison with a most curious
action. It hits an extraordinary af-
- (laity ior the red coloring matter of
the' blood, nnd soon prevents the
.blood from carrying sufficient oxygen.
'The result is that the victim falls
Jdowii in a paraly/cd condition and
.s-oon dies.      ,,
(One of the stTnngeat effectB of this
fcorrlble gas poison is that when a
linlldend • miner is curried into the
open air he (nils into most fearful
' convulsions, . exnclly as .if lie luul
'Hwallowed strychnine, Men often Aw
after.they havo been taken out alive

a curious outgrowth of phosphores-
,r«nt fnni'iis, while tho unvfttu wns no
doubt the creaking of a gallery roof
uader tie enormous pressure by the
enormous and heavy rocks above."
.This pressure sometimes, causes a
phenomenon • which miners call a
"goth." TIi'k i.s a sort of local
earthquake accompanied by a loud report. .'1 hi-"mine timbers . in the"'neighborhood are"'-suddenly shivere"" to
matchwood. Two years ago a miner
was killed in the Noitlnvood pit "at
Hanlcy,  England,-by a "goth."    '
Mining of'all kinds, is, in a way, a
gamlile with Nature.", A company'will
hen working a rich seam ,.whe,n suddenly the' miners run against 'a
-'fault," and llie seam is gone. Some
years - a^b" the' famous Graigola coal
'seam near Swansea was lost ;n
way. • Tuns of thousands of pounds
were spent inbmking for, it,..but it
w.is not until0 after more than ; two
years' hard work that it- was .re-discovered  near Clydach.        ■ -    ','
The same sort of thing happened
Wi the Dilhuriu' .seam, ,-a. magnificent
coal lx-d six feet thick7 Its ' owners'
sp^nt'5350,000, in Svvirchirig for it, but
failed to find it. Then, six- mouths
later, sonic other miners stumbleil
upon it «t the Or.iyeolt colliery at 11
depth  of  only  '450 feet,"
In modern times. more than 53,750,'-
000 worth of copper was dug from
the Collision-hills. In "'191*4' two clever inventors using a novel electn'c
apparatus,   rediscovered  the   lode.-.
Somviiuics a lost veing ' of ioal
c-annor bo 'located by "any ellort of
man.'. Fur niore than a hundred years
past large quantities of1' roal have'
been coming ashore on .a beach near
Small Point,''Maine:' It is, soft.coal
bf the liest. quality' known.-.' Every
possible effort has been made to- discover "the -source. Drills have been
ent down into1 the Point to °a depth
of over a thousand feet. A thin
seam ofx hard , coal was found, but the
source. of the soft coal wreckage is
still a complete mystery.
Miners never' know, what they may
me.it in the course ol ;their,slow explorations into tlie heart ' of the
rocks.' Two years < ago, a man working, in a pit near Pittsburg, Pennsylvania, suddenly came upon a piece of
coal bearing the imprint of "a :naked
human ' foot. It" was. chaace, "of
course,   hut the- resemblance was per-

he left the pit and sought work elsewhere.      ■ / '' . >-'.'.

The cypress vin,! .is one ol^ our easiest growers, wonderfully decorative,"
cheap and insectproof. - Its inexpressibly delicate, fern-like foliage ali-ne
would make it desirable in every garden. Bill, added to that it brings
forth exquisite 'lowers shaped cx-
nctiy like the five-pointed conventional stnr and so glowing in their white,
scarlet mid fiery orange-that thoy do
indeed shiu'e W'e stars in the cascade-
like muss, of living green, The cypres!* vine grows in any good soil,
from scid. H should lie planted In a
circle around a stake seven or. eight
feet high, so that as it grows it may
I* trained on strings all lending to
the top ul the stake, .Thus ehe full-
grown vine will make a great i-oul-
i-iil ninis of green, set thickly with
bright' bloom.
