Last Wednesday, the 22nd, was the
fdtip anniversary' of tlie great explosion at Coal Creek, in which 13° ni:n-
ers 'lost their lives, and the occasion
.,' was commemoratod by the closing-of
the mines and , a procession to the
graveyard. A very' large conclave of
miners attended.
the  Italian  society and. Slavonian
organization, preceded by  the Italian
hasd, marched to the Catholic church,
„ where a very brief service was    held,
alter    which   the . procession    again
~ marched / lo the Union  Miners'   hall,
' where they were     joined by members
" of Gladstone union, and all marched
to'the cemetery.'on'the hill.
liev; Father Tavernier conducted
the service in memory of the dead al,
the graveside of the, Catholic victims ol the disaster, after which Rev.
Kempton, of the 0 Baptist chuUch, offered up a brief prayer near, the Protectant graves, and was , followed by
Sal*. Grunt, who delivered a very
- brief  but eloquent  address.
Befoie the prayer of Rev. Kempton,
. "'Nearer My God to Thee" was   swig
; hy those  assembled, -and  atX the close
2  of Mr. Grant's    address   the    service
was brought to a close by the   sing-
tag-of "Jeous Lover, of My Soul."   .
*.   There  are many,   very  many     evl-
dsnees  of .the' tenderness ' with  which
v the victims of  the explosion are.kept
in     memory'  by their'' friends. '   Bill
,8*011,    there   are  many .graves    upon
which not even the names, of - those
who sleep" therein are to be found;
.Bows-of graves-of" unknown   ".dead
.o«es are to ,be-seen on the hill,  ami
ithoee who sleep therein havejieen   lor-
;gotten or were not known when placed in their last resting place.

inatlt an excuse for an outrageous

Hare is what occurred.    There wns

The ([uestion of the title to the coal
and pi'lrokum - lands in Southeast
Kootenay is to become a live one iu
the coiirts again. This arises out of
the fact that legislation was passed
iit thj last session of the- legislature
which validated ^ the special licenses
issued under - order-in-counctl v.5D*»e
years ago. The ./holders "of ■., these'lie
enses are also '-■ continued in"1 their

cannot he,p feeling that a few more
strikes will have the effect of forcing
the government to' assume control ■ of

not be attained so long, as the ,Crow's

The Calgary,, Chinook; after quoting a long statement by Mr. u Taylor about the investigation of the
lumber combine at Ottawa, makes the
following comment:0'      '"
The al)Qve is a str-ahg, bold, fearless statement, • aud on account of
Mr. Taylor having' l»en present at
the lumber investigation . and also
knowing the ins aad outs ol the lum-
.ber-ibusiness, he evidently knows what
he is talking-'about. Is is not' the
duty of the investigation committee
and the" attorney-general to tale
action in this matter at once?   Is it
pdsaibleifor_inen_ito_givea„falsi' ev.U
dc-nce   under oath, - before -a   .government committee, and go' Scot-t free?-
The Chinook- is-pot saying that
those'men did commit perjury, but
we do say that,Mr". Taylor's state-
inent.shbuld be "ta-iintlgated. It is no
use I eating, around the biish in this
matter. Public opinion demands justice. If (hose nien are guilty,of perjury, why were, they' allowed to leave
Ottawa before' this matter. was cleared up?, A poor man giving false evidence would be prosecuted at once.
Why not the millmcn and lumber
dealers? ■     ! \
What are our members doing in the
matter ut present? Arc they going to
wait and let the combine rob the people'still further of millions of dollars? Every newspaper and every
board of trade in Canada should get
to work aiid assist in smashing this
damnable, piece of robliery.

The 10 o'clock train to  Coal Creek,,
was full  to overflowing   with   people
who went up  to the mine town     to
spend the day.

,lt will  be seeu that the
items     of
heating, insurance and, improvements
nud repairs foot up a total of Ji,3lt>,
a big item which should be reduced.
lhe heating bill is a heavy one for
ihis buildiug, and ii it suiliccd to
heat tlie buildiug uot so much objection could be raised, .but so large-
aud bariilike a building with so much
window surface- makes it impossible
at times iu very cold weather to
keep tho temperature at anything
like a comfortable stage, . and . tbe
schools  have to be closed.
Tho insurance on such a structure-
is also a heavy expense.
lu . view of these ' conditions,
the Ijoaid took into ' consider 1
atiou _ , the advisability of preparing to build a new and ' larger
building which will ,be of brick „ or .
coucrae blocks, willi'' better sanitary -
arraUgeiiieuis, aud which .would uot
iosi more than hall, as much to heat
und to keep insured," and which would
cost little or nothing for repairs or
addition*?   lor years   to come.

Oiie uf our weekly conteinpor i: .-s
pullishwl in a coal mining distf .i,
has made some   sa«c   remarks    which
' for originality aud wisdom are marvels in their way. First he takes ihe
railroads to task for not supplying
an  adequate  amount of rolling  stock,
' and    suggests    that  if thvy    are  not
"able to accurately gauge the requ'ie-
ments of the coal trade, lhat the
railway -commission .should step ;n
..ud do tlie estimating for them nnd
see    that the ' roads" carry   out   llieir
" recommendations. This is what he
has "to   say   on tlie.subject:-
"The railroads ought to lx* able to
calculate the number of cars required
to handle the output ■ of  the mines. Il
,, tlu-y are not, the railway commission
should step in and solve the problem
for lltxin.' Then the railways should
! e compelled to supply all . the cars
necessary, and if' they failed to dc.
so a heavy" penalty ought to he imposed.' It is time the railroads were
made to realize that the people were
boss' of afiairs in  this country."
Just how a railway or a conrnis-
sion are. going to arrive at how much
£.:a" will be called for,in any ciu
ye i-.is not explained.' That is kit
io the railway and the commission^
The -railway's are 'further   behind in
", their equipment  for  handling   the   iu-
=•- cr.'asiug trallic.     of all   classes     than
. they ever were, and are' doing all ii
their _>ow..r to catch up,  but it seems.

.Then our  new man of wisdom    lee-.
' lures     the - operators  for , not being
-more humane   in   their treatment    ol
their    'employees,   and  endorses     Sir
■V/'Hiain   IMulock's   suggestion  of  con-
si.in t work succli-(I«1 by a good vaca-
'i tiim.   This is  what he  says:
"The   trouble   with   the   mine   operators,   as well  as the heads oi'  other
of our gre.it   industrial    concerns,     i.-.
..that  they  fail- to consider the    interests  of their men   from   the    huniaiw
'standpoint.     Instead ■ they    look    at,
.everything .from    Uie standpoint     o[
the. almighty dollar.   Would it not be
worth while  experimenting  in  a   new
way wjth  the  toilers?   Why not   give
them a holiday, -as  Sir  William  Mulock says,  and not force them to lay
off for a dny every week or sn,   That
nukes the   men 'dissatisfied,   On    the
other hand,   if   they  were    offered      a
week's  vacation and treated like   the
men who" work  in stores and   ofTices,
would    they Hot   be   better     satisfied
s    with conditions?   Would  not  the possibility of Industrial  troubles be   lessened?"
"Would nr.t the Crow:s Nest > cil
company have lam better off if it had
paid a slightly smaller dividend to
its shareholders und used their ein-
pii'jee it wee bit. better?"
The employee is favored with a  lecture n*   to hit (hull's   to  his  mup. iy
v-r, mid hu is,cniidiiiiinil fm- trying tn
force everybody into the union.   This
is the w.iy he puts -it:
IJui. it is in tin- fnlliiwin_r pnr.-i.

und pu-s it in a pnictiinl form „nd

"If the employer 'nnd employee wen-
to extJiaiigL' plm-i'H now und again
there would lie a far bethr under-
i-landing in tho  industrinl  world "
other kinds of fun -galore.
Such a strike as they would ,in-
au;ur.ite would beat all previous records.
Hut we 'ihvn't lwlieve it would avail
to'drive General Manager Sherman
and his stall of employees out of their'
joi s if once they were allowed to
firmly settle themselves'' in these soft
places. ■■ .- t f
Xo,    this     scheme    of    exchanging-
places'   would,,  not work.    The    men-
'would Le niore  dissatisfied   than  ever
.with  their dark holes  in  tjlie  ground,
i.-.nd the employers 'would   not-'   want-
'to change places more thaiv once.,in a'
lifetime,' and  that once to lx; of very
short  duration. .
The coal miners have never-asked,
for. such a change, ■ but-what they do
ask for is better pay and Iwtter
treitment They ask the public "to
look into tlie situation and inform
themselves upon the conditions which
suiior.nd the life of a miner and then
use their best judgment in. assisting
tl, liiintr to secure all that is coming, to _him for his risks of life, lack
i.f facilities for bettering' his and his
family's condition, and to secure" an
e.uitalje share of tflie. products of his
Wliei: the public, the great consumer of the- product of the mines,' finds
out that the miner ,is, after,all, a
_>arl of 'itself, it will be more lenient
iu its judgment of,.him, 'and-we have
faith enough "in-that public to-believe
ct st of comfort 'and real (necessities, of
those who have to dig it for, them,.
There - are many things which enter
into , the" cost'of the coal . to -the
loiisuinci- besides the wages of ' the
iiuiiiwluo digs it, and these elements-,
of cost should be thoroughly investigated.   - -.
The result, of .such an' investigation
will l.e to locate the blame for strikes
and lockouts where it properly belongs, and .it will lie found -that'the
public have the le;isl_ cause of complaint  against the   laboring   man.
Our, critic winds up his article ' by
sayiilg that the weakness of a' great
inniiy' unions, like industrial, concerns is that they arc frequently directed liy men who are narrow,; and
selfish. . They only look ut things
from the one point of view.
This.icmark can not apply to the
iroub.c in the unions at, IvOthbridge
last winter, or to the late controversy.
In both  tliose instances  the miners
received,   and justly,   the warm torn
'mi-ndalioii of the government officials
for their broad-minded .' and public-
spirited actions.J
Besides,, the action in the'late walkout was not the result of.i any leads>
ship. 'It was lhe individual, unaiti-
mov.s action of the'iuiners themsei-'cs
and no official or leader could have
stopped it. ,   »
' Ths narrow mindedness must have
proci#d«T from other _part'M*s - tu.in
those representing tlie-miners.

The following from the Fernie Ledger will be read with interest by "the
members iiud'.friends, of "the city fire
brigade:   .        ■,-' ' -'   -.;"  •   $ "■    . •_.'
''The fire brigade, racers have bcejri
out twice with their little race cart
this week, making runs Monday aiid
Tuesday evenings,, It looks • .good to
see the boys sprinting down n street
again, and this useful sport will attract , many spectators, and rekindle
an interest in the-brigade. J. W.
?'.unn, W. Warren, J. Kenny, C. C.
Wright, Milt nKasuiur. Bert Black, J.
Doyle, Edgecombe, ,H. A. Wilkes, II,
Cattell and others are taking ' part,
and out of - siich sprinters we Kvill
have a team whicli, with last 'year's
experience'nnd training, will be equal
to the best."   '
From reading the above we are
forced lo the conclusion that the I'ernie brigade will be al Cranbrook' on
Wior Day, with goods that will be
"all wool and a yard wide:' to" wrap
up lhe cup—well, the goods, won't
spoil.if tht-y have to wait another
year.—Cranbrook Prospector.
