Ferule's Grand Race Falls
Through for Various
Reasons. •,
We understand that the Fernie Mara
thon race arranged to take place at 4 30
yesterday afternoon at tlio Recreation
Ground was postponed on, account of
the absence of one of the competitors
who was unavoidably elsewhere
We are sure" the postponement of so
historic a contest was a matter.of deep
regret to the large numbers who intended witnessing a ' display of' athletic,
endurance unequalled' perhaps"'in the
annals of sport. " Iii many ways the
race promised unique features. ' The
contestants were well known and are
justly popular, and this in itself would
have added a piquancy seldom associated with world-wide athletic exhibitions.
We can only add our regrets to' the
regrets of the^dieappoin'ted. multitude,
aiid' trust when the Pernio-Marathon
race,, has once been run it will settle
dowrf into an annual event. ■ ■'

Two Thousand Employees of
Montreal Cotton Company
Quit Yesterday.
Valleyfield, Aug. 11—Two thousand
employees of the Montreal Cotton Com-
pany went out on strike this morning.
They demand an increase of t^n per
cent in wages; and it is alleged that
they have other grievances. So far the
strikers have remained orderly, and
there has'been no Bign oi trouble.
, . The men have been negotiating with
the company ,for an increase for some
time past. Last night a meeting of the
union waa held, and it was decided to
bring matters to a focus. To this end
it was decided to take a general holiday,
..with tlie uridbi'Hts'iidiiiij that it hhould
last until tlie ten per cent increase
demanded .had been granted. This
morning some of the employees turned
up and-began work, but when the great
body of employee') did noitlurn up, they
left work. , The strike was a complete
surprise to thc management as no intimation had beeii'-v-ivun llicm thai the
employees would not'go to woik'this
morning  ' - -'■ ,'
So far there has nfot been the slightest
disorder and a repetition of the disorderly scenes of seven years ago, when
the militia'was called'out,'.,is not expected. The strikers are confident'of
winning. '. ', ,'■ .,-•'.. ■ ' .'.
