Mr.. Editor^ Much has been said about
the miners during the preseut crisis,
both for and ajrain*t Mm. Now, Mr
Editor, as regards the miner being
guepicinus, I ask has not he had enough
to make him that'way. Promises which
have been made to hitn which have
never been fulfilled do not require to be
mentioned, as they are so Well known,
and by that other side which there is so
much talk about (the public),' of which
it ceouiB hedoes not form a part, he is
rejranied an soniething- which it would
he impossible' (or me to describe, I
should like tn ask why all this, commotion when he nays to'.himself, ''I- will
take a rest'indefinitety.". Wlien heis in
the dark regions below combatiiiff the
perils and., dang,ers whicli he alone
knows, aud producing that most neefiil
und neceasary coinmodity, coal, who
cares ono jot about torn? True, if ono
or a number of men liapjiens to meet
with a fatal accident, we see a few lines
in tho yellow press; a few aay "poor
devil," then ah well, aud all ia fotKOt-
What about tlie dear ones-he ha*1 left
behind? ' Not a word Does the public
Mother, nr the operators either? No, not
they, Another human'machine can be

Men are sent to legislate to the different houses of parliament, but.in this age
of fir raft what do thdy do—pass laws for
tbe people's welfare? Rather, we notice
pur .valuable coal lands disappearing in
to the control of a few of their, friends,
bur valuable forests of timber reserves
also;' our prairie lai:d given to railway
companies -and other corporations'in
millions of acres; the money we earn
squeezed out of us by taxatioii going- to
pay subsidies to steamship companies
and to flood the country with emigrants
.with which to cheapen labor. When, I
ask, ig all thin going to end. Fellow
workmen, - when will you rouse up aud
declare, that you will be no longer
plundered in this 'audacious 'manner;
get down to a thinking basis and send
man to parliament who will look'after
and°protect your interests. If this thing
goes much further some one will 'form
a company and put meters on your
lungs as they already make you pay for
your' land and -water. The. great
Uuskiu said, "land,- air aiid water .are

- IheChinook, o( Calffary, flftor quoting
the figures published by-tlie Ledger
two weeks ago showing- the w^tfes
received by tho miners in tho' camp at
Michel, makes the-following comment
upon the coal problem: ..-
"With coal Belling: at (6.25 per. ton in
Calgary and initios practically at our
doors, the miners should be paid the
vary highest wngoe- Tho above article
proves that thoy im1 not sharing in tho
great prosperity of' tho west, It is tlio
duty of thn Federal1 and Provincial
governments, as 1 well as the citizens 6{
this province, to.see that the miners sot
a square deal.
"It coBts About $11-25 a ton to ship and
deliver coal throughout Alberta (includ-*-
uig freight, agents commission, drayauo,
etc),1 Thn prico of coal to tho consumer
|s fiom $6.25 to $7 per ton, leaving a
handsome sum to bo divided between
tho operators and tlie miners
''Tho Chinook maintains that tho
miners are not getting their share of
thu protilB. Whyr1':
The Ledger douH not doubt but that
there are a few men who receive big
wages, but thnt theaverngeeamingsnre
not larfcu is plainly evident—from tho
Ledger HguroH
It Is dilllcull to adjust 11 scale of wages
tlmt will bu full- ami equitable to all
parties, but progress Is being made
towards that end, mul outof almost every
readjustment coined tome leveling up
of prloos,
Aside from being unfair as between
workmen, these exceptionally liltfli
priced jobs given an opportunity for
favoritism, mul, ns In a recent uuue,
gives opportunity to mislead the public
The U. M. W. uf A. Is a comparatively
new organixatloii in this district, und
Iihh, during Us short life, given ample
proof of its iiHUtulititriH to its members.
There is a wide margin between tho
cost of producing coal and thu price
which the consumer has lo pity for it,
and if those .consumers were (0 got
after that part of the problem, they
would not only bu helping themselves,
but tha coal turners and the operators

interviewer couched iu the followiug
"Pursuant to their vote atCoal Creek;
you fully expect them - to go back
tomorrow morning?"
"I fully expect people to keep their

, Such a statement, if made as reponed,

Aldermitn Stork gave notice of introducing a eix o'clock, closing bylaw at the meeting of the city council last Thursday night. This will
prolxtbty call out acme discussion, as
a ftcifajr that such. a law will not
oilvct all the Imsiness houses ' of the
city alike, owing '' to peculiar leal
conditions. The 'miners who live at
Coal Creek also object to this - pro-
potvd rt-gulatiou, and in view of
these-facts, it would seem wist to
institute a Wednesday half holiday
instead for the benefit of the., employees of the etorea.
'Tka iMgtt has Utkca a look ati
that list oi 817 Samea of voters who ,
ha%-e been objected to by one iTr.,
Charles J. Dcaahoe, of WeaUnjtaster,
B. C„ on the ground.that.the partica
named are not' residents of this prov-
inoe." ' ,
The -protest has been filed with the
official collector   of   votes,    W.    H.
Whimnter,    aad    is   dated April  ia. .
How Mr. Donahoe obtained the     in-,
formation    that     these    817    _><\iple..,
iueV>y of whom are well, known xesii-
dents of this    district, are not residents of the Province of British Columbia,  deapite     the fact' that they
are residents of this district,    is not
known  to  The  Ledger.   Neither does
it know bow Mr, Donahoe,  furniture
dealer ot New Westminster got     inside the furniture ot the government
printing office at   Victoria   and secir-
•d government paper upon which,  to ,
tyi*wrlte his objections.
The sheet on which that little note
is typewritten has stamped on it ;Ui
word Valleyfield, and the water !' i>
which are* in the paper are those that
are used exclusively by the British
Columbia printing ofiice. No paper
of this description is made aud delivered to any other people by the
firm which manufactures this paper ,
and delivers it to* the proviuciil
King's   priuter.
Mr. Donahoe also changed his haud-
writiag and the color and quality of
the ink he used when he wrote in lhe ..
date line which immediately preceeds
his signature, in a different hand
writing and used a much darker cnl- ;
ored ink.      ,
In this, date line occurs this date,
iath day of April, 1907. There is a
peculiarity about this th which is
distinctly characteristic. Look up
your letter books and see if you can
find letters formed aimiliarly to  this
In order to make a good comparison you should go to Mr. Whipster's
ollice aad take a look at that Donahoe document and Bote, the difference
in ink and 'handwriting and the pe .-.•-
liarity of the th. A careful study,of
the list of names which Donahoe "
does not want on the list will rev «.l
ita object, which seems to be a
wholesale disfranchisement 07 a
large number of working men.

' producetit for trie purpose of" preventing, jf possible,' the gieat iiariii tliat is
sure, to come to the local corps of the
Salvation army if these statements and

What will happen to bur local corps

This statement was made in the provincial parliament a few days before the
closing bf the'session; and is of such a
' nature as to demand-attention.
It* Mr.''Hawthornthwaite  'never did
anything' else for the "skilled_■ iabore'rs
of this country, than to have so effect-
vely   exposed   this   atteinpt   at   commercializing a great religious organic
zation in an attempt to get skilled labor
into Canada under the cloak of agricultural  settlers and laborers,,, he has in
that one act earned his  title to friendship from the home skilled laborer.
To the credit of "skilled laborers"gen
- erally, and these fresh arrivals iii particular, it is eyident thai lliey have a much
higher sense of their obligations to their
',- co-workers than lias some professed re-
'    ligionist  for the sanctity, of his professed
calling..  For the good of that organization', the Salvation'army,'ir should be
the  duty  of   its : chief officer  in- this

that the government was not under any \

Theretore he called on "the supporters of
the government lo vote down the resolution   which .-contained   a   statement
which was false.        "   .
■ ''Mr.'-Hawthornthwaite    wanted    to
know, whether the acting premier had
the  temerity'to suggest that the negotiations  now in progress wiih  the.Salvation-Urmv only concerned agricultur-
hi (aborers.    , „
' MK'Tatioiv said, ibis was correct.
Tlie scheme only had in view the bringing out of agricultural men.
Mr, .Hawthornthwaite replied- that
there  was no doubt  that the  primary
0 *' ' ,**
agreement entered into with the Salva.
tion army had resulted in the. men to
whom he referred being ' brought' 10
■British Columbia.''
Mr; Macdonald   had. nothing to say
except to express regret that these men
should have been .brought',out under
deception. He had to state that it was
the duty of the government to watch'
carefully the operation of the Salvation
jarihy in so far as British" Columbia was
concerned. . He felt lhat the government might take action to relieve tlie
present situitibn.  -
On a division ihe motion was defeated, only Messrs. Jardine, Williams,
