Some Disillusions, Some Parasites; and Some Advice
For the 'sitnplo reason  that all, or
nearly all, stories of the west.aro talcs
■ of the struggle of life, and the elemental'
passions, where every man carries • the
whole machinery of liis law in his own
•'   two hands,* and where justice is what a
nuin.can wriiijr from his associates by
•craft or force, do those, who only know
the west through the imagination of
-the novelist, conceive a miners' pay night
'  in Canada to be a wild'saturnalia of
abuse?   Nothing is further '.from 'the
— truth.   This* year wq'liave seen pay-
nights  in  Phcenix, Greenwood,   and
. Th'eriiie. • and in these campa we have
. seen nothing but what happens* every
night for the whole month in decorous
o -eastern   cities..., Eight   hours   underground, eight hours in bed,,and ei»ht
hours leaning on u fence, and looking
wise, does not lead to" anything start-
.linglyoriginal. *
Chinese Woman tad on track

Near fort Steele Brewery-;
Cause Unknown.
Yesterday morning, near the Fort
.Steele Brewery siding, a woman fell
from the platform of No. 5 west bound
train, where she was found in a state of
collapse by Mr., H. Oldland.
' Mr. Smith, of the Fort Steele Brewery,
was soon on the'scene, and doctors
were telephoned for., Upon their arrival
thoy, ordered the woman's removal to
tho hospital, «nd a rig belonging to the
Dominion-Meat Company, whicli was
passing at the time was pressed into
service,     „ .,-   „
The woman had in her possession a,
ticket to'Kainloops, and was of Chinese
nationality,'   Up to* the, time, of going,
to press the affair is shroudedin con
aiderable myaterv. . ■"','.""- ■ =.
"--      " '      o
At the hospital it was found necessary
to amputate the unfortunate woman's
left arm above the elbow, whilst the
bones of the right arm are also broken,
and she is suffering from a scalp wound.

"'  'At  Province  Town,'Mass.,   Presi-
. dent Roosevelt   has- inaugurated    a
campaign against ruthless and  corrupt corporations, and at the same
meeting he .threw 'the., influence , ot bis
presidential, position  into  the    balance  in  favor  of  more  far-reaching
and    thorough-going   laws for    the
protection of the workers, than any
yet existing on the statute-books of
tbe Spates.   President Roosevelt dis-
"missed, the current iniquity that'   a
man or a. woman who ig crippled in
an' industry, even as the ~?llt   of
tailing  what are  necessary risks  of
their occupation, should be required
to bear    the   whole burden'  of the
ioss.   ~ This burden should be    distributed and not placed solely upon
Jhe weakest individual, the one least
■able to carry it., By making the employer liable the loss will ultimate-
* ly be distributed' among the   beae-_
ficiary of.the business.
.But these things, &s the President
, pointB oUt> will, not be, accomplished without great   and concentrated
- effort.   It will be necessary to work
1 - .1' --O
.permanent betterment if we wish to
lift civilization up '   to a level    ol
4 i '
safety and usefulness. *„
The President admits that so* far
' State efforts to control corporations
and trusts have fa'l;d, Juries are
Blow to commit individuals, whilst
the same juries are eager to eornmit
corporate todiss.
A national inccrporation law , for
corpordti'.ns envagei in 5t\te tu:i-
ness seems tbe enly cure. Because
nlmo'st every Lig business concern is
en:a;,ed in int-rsta'c commerce and
such a coii'Jirn must not l:e allowed
by a dexterous Kbifiin; cf position,

Tr4iste:s meeting,- appointed by the
Gladstone Local Union 2314'to u decide on the best method of distri.
butin.j or investing the fund collect-
el on behalf of the Beaver family— ,
Decided, the fund should be , distributed as directed by . said local
union, viz., ?100-for, the - immediate
r.llcf of the family, and $6*12.50 deposited for the protection and education of the*child Florence Beaver,
and^ should anything unforseen happen to the said Florence Beaver before the above sum is expended, the
amount left to go to the relief , of
thc other children. .       .    \
Should the trustees at any time
see a more remunerative investment
than depositing in the said bank,
they have power to do so, providing
this decision is unanimous," and if
invested in real estate, that it be
the first mortgage. But in no case
shall it;, be loaned on more than 40
per cent. ,of value on the. property.
i.Should it so happen that a trustee of this fund leaves the camp or
country, he shall ssnd word' to the
other trustees and his resignation to
thc local union, so that another
trustee ' can   be   appointed   in his
stead*. -^*^**".'~i 4^ ■,-..* .i

Washington to Get Coal from
Fernie Over Great Northern.
'.****:      ?**
■ The Wasjington Power Company
h:;s placed an order with thc Crow's
Nest Pass Co.il Company, of Pernie,
B, C, (or .3,000 tons of commercial
coal to be ddivcred as toon as pos-
skl.f- The Great Northern kcal officials are now. making arrangements
to rush this coal.in as fast as -.ho
power company can handle it.
The demiiids cf the Great Ncu-tli-
ern having been satisSed as per contract with the Crow's ,Ncst Company, the latUr company has just
got ia a position where it can ae,jin
to ship commercial coal. The Great
Northern hus been taking particular
cafe that it encounters no shortage
itself, and it is asserted has now
60,000' ,tor.s of coal in storage at
Hillycrd and more at other points
alon"j the line. „'  '.
The officials of the company 'now
feel that they may be able, on account of their large supply on hand,
to weather anything that comes
along in the way of a fuel shortage
this winter. The'company has secured most of its' coal from the Crow's
Nest Company at Fernie, tbe latter
company agreeing to give the railway its supply before beginning to
ship to private parties or other corporations. '. * '
" Several of the orders for more or
less large quanthi.s of Crow's Nest
coal have been placed with the agent
of the coal company in Spokane, R.
Dorn. The indications are that Spokane -will take;a large share.of the,
company's output this summer and
autumn.   Mr."Dorn 'left" for' Fernie..

jICIIEL Townsite has been surveyed and laid out into lots by the Crow's Nest Pass Electric Light & Power Co., Ltd,    The easterly end is less than 4,000 feet, or about two-
thirds of a mile from the mine entries.
There are twenty blocks of lots; the ten of these blocks nearest to the mines will be reserved exclusively for the miners, and miners applying now will receive the preference in order
of application. Lots will be sold to miners cheap and tho terms of payment will be 10 per
cent, cash and $10.00 monthly with interest until paid for, so as to facilitate their securing
homes for themselves, and they will be required to undertake to build within a reasonable time.
Tho remaining ton blocks will become tho business portion of the town and will bo sold by
Public Auction at a date to bo hereafter announced. It is believed .that the Great Northern
Railway, now oxtending its lino to Michel, will build its station opposite this portion of the
