Owing to the frequency ,of_* certain

at Fernie  were 'in  contemplation,  a
• representative of "The Ledger.,'' called
'upon Senator Cox to ascertain his view
on tlie subject." Asked if Mr. G. G. S.
Lindsey wns about* to retire from the
management of*the mines' of*t the company, Senator Cox- replied .with a smile
"That such' reports.have appeared "1
am a'waro. _- But the directors are very
'satisfied indeed  with   what  is  being
-done  in   Fernie,  and  never for one
' moment  had - in   contemplation*: any
action such as was foreshadowed in'the
reports which appeared in the ;" Van*,
couv.e.i"-World" and .were , copied, in
, nearly every paper in the dominion.-i
'Asked what he thought of the property
, of   the"  company round  Fernie," the
senator replied that he bad visited some
of them and was impressed, with their
splendid.prosnects," and 'was- quite Ian"-*
guino of the future of the- coal mining
industry." '.'      .'>;':* 7 "'.<   ■ •-..1 ..Crt7. T-'«

Our Contemporary Seems
^^ Think we are Trifling,
The following is  from  the Frank
: On another page will be found a news
item emanating from the official organ
of the United Mine Workers of America
which has it that in the coming Dominion election which it is currently supposed will be held some time in the
early, part of next year, there is to be
an alliance between the -United Mino
W,orker8_and the Society of Equity, the
farmers organization in Alberta, whereby the organizations will unite in put'
ting, candidates for 6eats in the House of
Commons in the field in the constituencies of Macleod and Lethbridge.
_ In some respects tho.-story bears tbe
earmarks of authenticity, but other
points of view would seem to' cast a
strong doubt on its complete reliability.
The aspect of the ease which would
seem to indicate that the Fernie Ledger
in whicli the item^made ita appearance,
speaks with.authority.'is found the fact
that District- President F. H. Sherman,
of the mine workers/has announced
that he will not, be a candidate for reelection to that office, coupled with the
further-fact that he has taken up a
.homestead near Taber and has given it
ou'tthat he is going to be:ome a farmer.
. The following is from the Winnipeg
Tribuue of Sept. 16.
R. C. Owens,' of the Canadian Society
of, Equity, Edmonton,', ."said . he was
elected and sent there by- the farmers
o_f'Alberta. (Applause.) It was rather
out of the ordinary course of events for
si farmer to attend a Trades and Labor
Copgress. (Laughter.) Nevertheless,
,tjie longer they lived, if they kept their
-. 6f*B open and stheir intellects alert, .the
People did not-^loo^u't^
-a** laborer, but there was no class of
laborers that worked as hard and as
tyn.TibjwS'M'.tEj. farmer, his wife and
his family. Statistics in the .United
1 !■ i-i.".-.- .al'ih'.'d ','•.'■• c'J    ■-"■
States proved that farmers.got the
least pay of any class of .workers..'? He
told farmers-they. ought to be ashamed
of themselves. (Hear." hear.). For the
last forty or fifty years he had had. thc
hope that he would see the day when
farmers, mechanics,and,laboring: men
would join hands and realize that their
interests worked together. Today they
were seeing this arid realized that they
could liberate themselves from the
thraldom, of capitalism.. ,,(ApplauBe.j
Perhaps some of them heard of the
Equity Society.
" As he told his brother farmers, there
was not another word in the English
languago that more aptly described
what they, wanted and what ■ they did
not get (laughter).equity, justice aiid
fair play aud every thing along that line.
Farmers-had no right to complain of
any wrong legislation, if thoy had not
the eeuse to put their own members
there. His idea was that there was
just room enough for. one grand party,
representing all, workers, no,matter
what trade, calling or profession 'they
were engaged in. (Applause.) .The
interests of all following useful occupations were identical. It wasJiUBt possible
there might be a side show composed of
those outside this comprehensive party
of workers, but would it not cut a small
figure? Hitherto they had allowed such
to carry on the partiesof cho legislatures.
Nine tenths of the- voters in Alberta
were " farmers, „ aud there was one
farmer iu ihe Alberta legislature. At
the next' electiou another story would
be toKl, because*' people were thinking
faster in the right direction' than they
were over before in tiie world's history
(Applause)        ,
Some said, "Oh.'that fellow is a Socialist." What was that? .A man who
believed in a:better state of society.
Now,-he-was in favor of a better state
of society. (Applause.) The two old
parties were composed of a few lawyers,
a few tfaders,"a few capitalists, a few
manufacturers and a few scheming
policiane mixed in. (Applause.) Then
why should they act,like fools any
longer? He was glad to see tile women
folk acting with them in the great
reform movement, and he hoped that
universal sugrage would be one of the
maitfplankg'in the platform. Where
Uid~j"n"en.£eH say 1h~it
women ehouljl not havethe same right;
to say something in the running of the
government? ..Who. gave them .the
authority*/'. '-It was ^assumed. 'lien
assumed too much,   (Applause.) • •  ., j
. ; BABY'S DANGER. 7- - ^
•    ' ' , '.' - ' ', '. i
More little lives are lost during the
hot weather months than at any other
time of the year. In the" "summer
months little ones are the victims of
diarrhoea, cholera infantum, dyBentary
and stomach aud bowel troubles. These
come suddenly, and . without warning,
and when a medicine is not at baud'' to
give' promptly tho short delay may
mean death. During the hot weather
months Baby's Own Tablets should be
kept in every home where there is a
young child. An occasional use of the
Tablets will prevent stomach aud bowel
troubles, Or if the troubles come unawares a prompt use of this medicine
will bring the child through safely.
Mrs. J. Renard, New Glasgow, Que.,
say's: "I cannot speak too highly of
Baby's Own Tablets. One of my child-
ren had a severe attack. of diarrhoea
which the Tablets, promptly cured,"

Judge Holds M. P.'s noi: Illegal
—Important ;Case
.. Judgment was given in tho King's
Bench Division on Satnrday in an appeal from the "county court of Mon
mouthshire, in which-a miner named
Steel asked the court, to declare that
the South Wales Miner*".1 Federation
had no power to make a(levy for", the
payment of0the election expenses and
maintenance of an M..P. Plaintiff sued
in tho county court for a sum of 4s.,
which he said he had beoh compelled tb
pay under such a levy j'biit the county
court judge having held, as a question
of fact, that the levy had been voluntarily paid, decided thnt it was not
recoverable on appeal.     -,„•.*
On plaintiff's bohnlf it was contended
thnt the, rule on which the -Federation
acted was absolutely illegal and against
the purposes for which tho Federation
existed; also, that tho provision of
funds for the return and maintenance
of members of parliament wns some1
thing altogether outside what n trade
union wns nllowod to do under Section
10 of tho Trade Union Act, 1870.
Mr, Justlco Darling, in giving his
decision at considerable length, said he
could not see tho forco of these contentions. Outside tho rules of the Fedora
tion thoro was nothing contrary to tho
gonornl lnw in providing funds for tho
purpoBo no,thoso indicnted. It seemed
to him that ono wny of regulating tho
relations between' masters and work
men, and work mnn and workman, wns
(o gat laws pasted by Pnrlinmont. If
they wanted to got such lnws passed
for tho regulation of tho relations
between roasters nnd workmen, &o , thn
first step was to got representatives
sent to pnrlinmont In order to promote
a bill, which, when it,became lnw,
would regulate those relations.
Referring to tho claim thnt it wns
unjust that plaintiff should hnvo to pay

What will appear very interesting to
many people heie is the article taken
from a.New York daily paper, giving-
a simplb prescription, as formulated by
a noted authority, who claims that' he
hns found a positive remedy to cure
almost any case of backache or kidney,
or bladder derangement, In the following simple prescription, if taken before
ihe stage of Blight's disease.
. . Fluid Extract Dandeloln, one half
ounce, Compound Knrgori; one ounce;
Compound.;Syrup.. Sarsaparilla, three
ounces.-Shako well'in 'a'bottle and
take in teaepoonfu. doses after each

when asked regarding this prescription.
"oBtated -that the . ingredients aro all
- harmless, and can bo ohtnined  at  a
: small cost from any good prescription'
pharmacy; or the mixture would bo put

At the'mcetii'g ot Local Fernie S- P.
of C. last Sunday, Mr. J. Harrington
gave au' address entitled "lhe Class
Struggle," and' those who were fortur..
ate enough to' hear him° considered
themselves reward-, d for bras-ing the
elements. . •
The ppenker, gave nn outline of, the
Darwinian theory of the struggle for ex
if-tonce in its lelation to the human family from snvHt.ery to our present ci\ili-
7.al.on.nnd;.tho lirst evidences of-the
class btniggle are to be found in the
warnings of Socrates, who pointed out
to the Athtii.ians.thc danger of the numerous slaves (workers) umuj? and overthrowing the ruling class. Throughout
llie centuries past the class struggles
have been the greatest historical events
alt!'ou»!i the voice "nf rhe worker, has
usually been drowned in the din of the
st'rlio between the powerful rising middle, class, or bourgeons, aiid the monorchia! class. When the middle clasB
succeeded as the ruling power and'in*
au^rated^ttie™Bystem of production
known to.us as capitalistic,-the;class
struggle then became directly one be/
tweeh the exploited workers and,the
master classes, labor and capital. -
.Trades uhioniem is an acknowledgement of the claes struggle, for every
concession made has had to: be fought
for, but trades unionism that does not
carry the class etruggle into the political arena ie doomed to perpetual servitude. Laboring mon, the proletariat of
all nations, are waking to (he fact, and
Karl Marx's ."Vvoikein of the woild
unite, you havo nothing to lose but
your chains, you have a world to gain,'1
is being sound-id where var workers are
banded togeth'ei for'mutual protection
Class antagonisms will only be abolish-
jd by the ushering in of the long
dreamed of co operative commonwealth,
and' so soon ns tlie workers are conscious cf their class interests, bo soon
will thc dawn of their economic freedom
appear. 7        ■      "

AU big inventions have been sneered at and turned down, aiid stock went
begging atva low/price, and notone person in a thousand took advantage of.,
the opportunity to buy the stock. For example, Mr. Westingliouse, inventor of
the now famous air-b*ake, was kicked out of his own father's factory. Kelly, the
inventor of Bessemer steel, was called crazy. Bell Telephone stock went begging,
as also thousands of others too, numerous to mention.
Mostly all the big fortunes have been made through patents, or brains
as it should be called.
