the direction ofr.Harold Nelson   and
Clifford-Lane ;Eruce-; will appear   at,
the Opera* House, Fernie, Tmirsday,
Oct. 31," 1907.'   ■
The play opens with the fete, day
at Pompeii. (Nydia, the blind girl,
wanderijlthnjugh. the .streets selling
flowers. !'Glaucus, the noble Athenian, converses with her, but does "not
guess)'ihat, the ,loves',; him,' for to
him she is but a child, and his affections are centered upon lone', the
beautiful Neapolitan maiden'. , She
and "her bi other,' Apaecides," have
teen pupils of Arbaces, the Egyptian-
and .he, while trying' to'' keep the
brother from becoming a Christian, ■
tries'ao the same time to- win lone
fcr his bride. , She,, however, "loves
Glaucus. Thc interest of.the, play
circles round Arbaces, the Egyptian',
who, with his bass treachery and
cunning'„n".akcs a strong personality.
The plot, is'good. The. Costumes
arc typical of that early era, the
sandalled lm:, the flowing robes," thc
land ot Cnristians in their . black
cloaks and hoods. , ...
While this production is under tho
direction of Harold Nelson and*-Clifford Lace' Biuce, they have" spared
no pains to make this new venture
a success.-**a capable company of*
New York players have been chosen
to fill the various roles .to support
Miss Helene Scott,- who appears as
lone,,, the Neapolitan maiden.\ Miss

.This, paperowill not be responsible
lor opinions cespressed by its correspondents.
'To Tho Editor:-, °
. Dear Sic—1' would.* beg* leave .for
the use" of your valuable paper to
express an opinion on certain questions .which __ seem to ' be occupying
•the attention of the working classes-
of this'disU'ict aud those people'who'
take any in.crest in the .social and
economic , conditions prevailing iu
this part Vi British Columbia.
- In the first place I may say that
I know that the "Free Press is the'
property of the Crow's Nest Pass
Coal Company,"'but ■ I also "know
that it. owes a- duty to the general
' public, as well as to its proprietors,
and I know,• also',' that"for the.."Free
Press" to rciuse to give" publicity to
both sides cf these questions, would
instantly^mean 'ostracism 'by its
most intelligent, readers.. ^However,
" -I "'do' not doubt that that the' '''Free
Press" will be unbiased in dealing
with these questions and- thereby retain, -* at least, self-respect.- The"
questions I have especial reference to
-are some of the letters appearing in
the'.."Free"' Press" and the^-'Fernie
Ledger."-The .large influx^of , im-
., ported imtn?f.rants. into-=thls" part -is
they like it. In. answer- I would
quote Voltaire, who .when Puefondorf
claimed slavery* was originally voluntary, demsnded a copy of; the first
ccntract, declaring -that if that was
so, he would find the- slave's name
appended to the contract. It was'
never produced. 'Backhands may like [stances    than some

had, and know by- experience that
that is hartir, likely to be accomplished by a*, .over-stocked' labor'
market. However here is "where I
differ with Mr. Biggs." He advises
men ,to stay jn England and not to
come-to British Columbia, for fear'
that we in British Columbia already
fail' to maintain the privileges we,
have. It is, ia my opinion, illogical
and inconsistent to ask men, to stay
in England whilst we enjoy the lib-'
erties they, Lave' not. "I know I differ in opinion with a lot of miners*
on this question, but liberty '- of
speech 'nitjuns more to me, it is
broader, deeper and more glorious
than to say 1 think; what I think
somebody else thinks. I believe in
honest opin.on, right or wrong. ' I
am an Englishman and know conditions here JaJilywell. England is
cursed with caste.. A miner there is
classed very little above-the .average
hog, and even he.is in better* cirefum-
f    his- fellow-
_causing~quTte ^^ensation~¥inong"~th-e"
' miners of this-district.'■■*__  ■-■•_• 7 -•'.■'
' The peculiar feature is that    only
"the C. N. P. C. 0. have to resort to
- this-method of sending ■ out to England, etc., oi special agents to misrepresent   ta - a certain   extent the
'true Conditions  which, prevail here.
In Mr. Biggs: first letter he explained the situation at Fernie very thoroughly and to a considerable extent,
and casually mentioned tbat conditions could not be so good In Michel
■ or there would not be such a scarcity of men as reported by the com-
.'pany.  Quito a natural conclusion* on
the'part of Mr?'Biggs.  It is refresh;
, Ing to find at least'that some of tho'
Fernie men understand part-ally the
conditions at Michel.    Somo    little'
time ago, when Michel men   refused
to go to work under tho conditions
. impoBed upoD tnem by Mr. Sherman
and : Minister   of   Labor ' McKonzlo
Xing, some of the Fernio .union   ol-
.  tlcinh declared that the Michel men
' were   being led   away   hy someono
with personal   feelings and, possibly
perepnal    aspirations.     Tlmo   has,
however,. shown that tho Michel mon
were on the right tratfk, and we are
grateful to Mr. , Biggs for his   con*
coBBlon.  Whan- we consider the conditions that now prevail iii tho met-,
all fcrous district of British Colum-
'bin, ,,to«other   with * tho conditions
prevailing In the conl mines of Montana and Wyoming, U. B. A., which
are, with Michel, etc., ln the   same
competitive   field," I ask   candidly,
"Did Michel receive a square deal?"
It is truo that somo men in Mlehel
make fairly good wanes, but  under
what conditions do they earn tbem,
and even   arc' tihoy typical of   tho
gonornl earning capudty of the miners. I answer, most   emphatically,
"no."     Thr* men who nre making
wages that compare In any way lav-
orahlo to thc wagon earned even   In
Alberta, arc men who work  on the
backhand Mjuton.; that Is, ono   man
working,    l.vlnc   nnd    earning his
Rood wages nt    tho   expense of tho
poor    slave (laborer)    who   works
nloiiguldo of him, sharing the   same
Wanders ' and receiving just enough
to keep body and soul together. The

the system, but;, it has never been
my privilege tb see any of those-who
did.' We' have aeain in Michel an al-'
most infinite number oft grievances,
which must be, remedied, and .before
long, too. I would advise' the company to send, down to Michel that
gentleman \\h.o in Free Press columns
signed himselt ."Satisfied." I- will
undertake to.show him that in,some
instances ive have men shovelling
coal for the lidiculous sum of ,4 cents'
per ton, a thing unparalellcd' on the
American    continent.    4 will   show
him a mine. where the miners"   set
■* ,\
their posts for nothing, other camps
in, this 'district paying'5 cents per.
lineal foor for •-- sanie71 will show
him men pushing - cfoal down-a chute
250 . feet long for nothing.' I will
show' him • men packing -timbers the
same- distance for .nothing—these
things being..done by compani men.
in other "camps.. I could go on al-.
most ad infinitum. t How is that" in
Taber, Alta., .the"" men receive 50,-c.
per. ton ior loading and blasting-
coal, after it has been machine mined,'aiid-the med *in_ No. 3, Michel, re-
-ceive"~only~57t5—cents™- per—ton——ior-
handpicked coal, having 'to blast and
load too.' Why should" the C.' N..P.
C. C. to discriminated in favor . of
liy.,this, district union?"Do circumstances justi.'j it? No sir! "All of
the Alberta operators had to buy
their coal lands as well as develop
them.'whiUt the C. N. P. C. C,
through political intrigi'.e' and corruption, acquired *250 .:square, miles
pfjthe finest, coal land under .tlie sun,
and an almost illimitable stretch of
tlmter'lauu, too, and'for nothing^ A
very conservative estimate of the
value of. this property would be
?1Q,000,COQ, probably_ '?15,CO0,CO3
would be urmrer the proper value.*
Yet we' never hear-of this, being"
counted in their balance.*--
Should we then work under  worse
conditions ana for less wages than
other camps in the same field,    and
will tho Miohel men consent to'work
under these conditions until the expiration''of this contract?.   Let me
say thut in' my opinion that   Michel
Is" a vcritablo magazine,, nnd is aa
likely as    not to go "off" at any
tlmo.  I ask you not to brand mo as
a dcmasoR   until   after   proper   investigation,    but rather   como    to,
Michel nnd enquire for yourself, Ask
the local .superintendent . how   often
ho Interviews   thc   local   grievance
commlttoe.  That, I consider, Bhould
be'n" true 'inc'ox, to    the situation.
Most probuMy tho company wlil Bay,
what reliance can wc place In these
men? Havo tbey no respect   for   n
regular aslgafd    nnd legal contract?
Allow mo to suggest, sir, that   no
contract or agreement Is ,valld which
Is signed  through fear  or Intimidation,   and   I can prove ..to the full
that that applies In this,case. The
company nuy>gnln''nBk, what method   would be taken to "abrogate"
this agreoment? In my opinion, the
miners of1'-Michel, nnd » bollovo Fernio, too, and.ng that they arc work.
Ing under worse conditions anil less
wns-CH than those that prevail In the
aforementioned places, may.   nnd I
believe they' will eventually, If not
In tins immediate future, break nwny
from District IS and form themselves
into r. scparUc district, or probably
nfflllntn Willi the Western Federation
lionares,,and capitalists, etc., -said:
that, "they" the Capitalists,., were'
"God's Trustees."- I'wonder if he
meant it, ii so, what'an awful" eon-
demnatien of his God, 7A trustee,
as. I' understand it,-"is, a' person who'
is entrusted with a certain charge,
by one who trusts him, believes and
thinks thai he is an honest- man,
one who will perform* this duty.
Are some' of thc well known American millior&i'es men of that calibre?
Men who hv : violated every law in
the U.S. /,. both moral and physl-..
cal; men who have torn to pieces
thousands of children, in their merciless., exploiution, men who have,today in "peonage" their fel,ow countrymen. Ac these God's trustees/
some of wl oni deny, his very existence. I can't believe it. . The Bishop of Lordon is cither misquoted,
or he is mad If 'a man about to
die, leaving an'1 only .daughter,, one
whom his c>ery affection was centred)
in, one who was too young, or   too
country mo;*..   There, is a   class   in
England who arc almost afraid that
their very clothes"might touch*those
of the working class.   They     could
not ■ be more scared   if workingmen
were, lepers.   Even the business class
have to play a very subservient role.
If an   aristo'-rat   wanted   a box of
Beecham's  Fills, * the shop assistant
would, have to     take   them to-his
home and   4\->;uld  have to    approach
the   place by    -the,   back door,- and
with   almost-  reyerential awe,    and.
would he almighty glad if he     got
away without the dog being   set on
him.   The   average  workingman,    in
thousands in England, is tricked out
of the greatest privilege a man can
have in aay country, viz., the Iran--
chise. "' J'ist , because^   hundreds . of
.thousands are human enough to stay
with  their pm cnts,    without taking
out "lodger's-papers," they are   deprived of a.  vote  in the country. Were
I in England today I would have no-
vcte.-  Yet- wc find that all the aristocracy have-votes, because- if they
are not householders they "are property owner's, but there are thousands
mea in Kugla.id, who consider themselves' faiily   lucky,  i,   they    have
enough   property to buy them  their
breakfast,    'lhe very  fact  that-we
stay in tin's"country ourselves, is, a'
better incmiiye for the Englishman
to come, than Mr. Bigg's and others
notes   of   warning  are to the cor-,
trary.   Ii '-ve suffer fiom bad   laws
in this country,  we only get   what
desurvo.   There is no vountry in
0   world where    thc  workingmen,
are in such an overwhelming majori-,
ty as in British Columbia, and moro
especially-the Fernie riding.   If- we.
want   or   vish to   emancipate ourselves, wn have every possible opportunity,   Wri   have" In this   " country
what the Trade Unionists   and Socialists of England have been   and
are yet fip.liti.ig for,   universal "suffrage.  Why then should we ask these
men to st.iy in a country whero they
have' not that lirivilogc.   To mo   it
soems   absurd.      Wo   have, in and
around    thi-pr    mines   benrly    2,50,0
men, there are, I believe about   C
practicing    banisters In this   same
riding, yet we send Wm. Ross,,barrister to rcp't-seiit us.   What has he
dono or silil lor tho workingmen of
this ooDF.tlti'tncy.  On tho     question
of the   J,\d* invasion   ho has maintained an ominous silence,   Ho   has
sceu   hundreds   of   white men displaced by Japs In the lumbering industry, thcroly bringing them   Into
competition wit', tbo  men engaged
In thut    Industry in this neighborhood, yet ho opens not his mouth.
His sllonco to me, Mr. Editor, boars
a very strong   rcsomblanco   to thc
devotion of Leucna;    who,   wc are
told, bit out her tongw for fear she
mlgbt   be tortured to betray   her
muster Arlutogitcn.   Mr. Robs,  lln
bis devotion to his 'master 1. e. (The
Corporal ion    does not. bite out his
tongue,   biit   rather putu It In   his
cheek,    Speaking   of   the   .Tap Invasion, I notice that President Hays
uf tbe Grand Trunk Taclflc in an interview nt   Vancouver said,  "That
uny one whom   tho government al- ]
innocent,  an-"  he bethought himself
g „    Canada's Weekly Newspaper
to' appoint for her,, until she arrived at maLviity, a guardian, a trustee; would he deliberately choose a
libertine? ,. when' will "this mummery
cease, wh3n will the bishop's and
all the orthodoxy, cease to shackle
men's- minds'? • When will they commence to tell thc truth, I woiider.
Tn conclusion, sir, although I cheerfully accord"-to "Satisfied", all I ask
for myself," and especially the freedom of speech, he must see that I
writ"; as „he did, in the. Company's
paper, and under a non-de-plumc,
places him ia a funny position, 'to
say thc least. , He is also unique, .in
that he is satisfied. ■ Man as a whole
is not, never was, and never can be
satisfied. He has been, and is .today,'' struggling up the social plane
,-ind for the firsc time'in human history,' v»e see signs that he is about
to ..assume, the , full'responsibilities
of 'manbood. In other words he is
aboui to "refuse'to be the chattel of
anyone, whom -nature has ^endowed
with a cunning,, tigerish ^brain, in:.
just,.the   same .fashion  that  society

nature has endowed with Herculean-
um strength .to .impose on. another.
However,-seeing that "Satisfied" is
satisfied, I think rMr. Lindsay ought
to put in operation that old Mosaic-
law, that if a bondsman says "I love'
my master,' ,1' refuse to/leave him,"-
the master was supposed, to lead*,
him to the door post; and plug '' a
hole through hii: ear. I hope that*
Mr. Lindsay hus enough respect for
the Bible to. carry out its „in-
junctioni" I .hope Mr.' Editor that
I have not presumed too far on your
valuablo sracc, and that you will
give this a corner in your widely
read paper. Having just about the
snme respect for tlio, man who signs

Dear Sir: ,
Letters are being constantly received by tho Bureau'ot Provincial
., Information from persons desiring
work on farms and orchards. These
applications are from,tho Middle, and
Eastern Provinces . of Canada, the
British Isles and Northern Europe,
and may be divided.into four classes,
. namely:— -        '."    ■ J
1. Young men inexperienced in farm
work, wishing to'learn practical farm
' work and horticulture;
2. Experienced farm, hands, uumar-
3. Experienced farm hands, married
" (with families . or' otherwise) whose
wives are'willing to take service with
their husbands;
4. Women domestics. *
A majority of the applicants is of
class 1, but there is a considerable-
number of class 2.   Class 3 is much
less numerous, and there are very few
applicants in class 4. ., Most of the
, married men.are desirous of having a
dwelling separate from that of the
employers, an0 arrangement   which
- should commend itself to those who
1 look to securing permanent help. ,
Under an agreement existing between the Government and the Emi-
5 gration Branch of the Salvation Army
a considerable immigration of t&rm
hands and domestic help is°expected
from Great Britain during the spring
Tuesday afternoon inaugurated a stop
in advance for Fernio: it mado it possible to talk to Cranbrook by'phono.
Tho usefulness of telephones has become
bo thoroughly established that now tho
idea of comfort is a factor in tholr working,   In lonely prairie homesteads, to
women who have nothing but tho Inevitable round of duties to por form,

neighbours, havo now some moans of

"' *
Spring Valley.'IU., Oct. 11,1907. .
Mr. Frank W. Snyder, Publisher, the
Labor Argus, Charleston, \Y. Ya.:
;. Dear Sir and Brother—Your favor of
October a waa forwarded from Indian"
apolis and received at Spring- Valley,
where I nm, epeiulinjj a few hours at
my home, preparatory tq cnterin-? the
.hospital at LaSallo, 111., for the purpose
of uuclorgoing- an operation.
Your letter enclosed what purports to
be an interview from Mr. John Nugent,
■and you ask*mo to write a statement in
reply thoroto.   As only two hours will
.elapse before I leave for the hospital,
and ae the operation I am forced to uii'
clergo is serious r.nd complicated, it is
not likely that 1 shall have opportunity
.to give attention to matters of this kind i
again in tlio very near future, I'shall,'
therefore, . accept u your invitation  to
mnkerenlv.   ..*-'•
■ *■'      " . 4     a i
That Mr. Nugent should express sur-
, prise that the officers of our organization
should seek to prevent miners from
locating in tho state of AVi-st Virginia-1
is,,to ,say,the least, astonishing.   He
knows that for many, many yeat-B the
very best possible^ efforts were made to
organize that 6tate.   He cannot deny
that the efforts made were'the best, be*.
cause he hoi-ea-proininent part in them.
Letters from him oii lile at our ofiice
aud his statements before our Executive
Board will show that these efforts and
plans had his endorsement.    -
• -We were not able to Becure—at least
little progress was made toward securing
—a thorough organization in the Little
Mountain State, •• arid', a large part of
what*wo had iu the Kanawha district
was'destroyed bv* a settlement made by
- him without our knowledge or authority.
However, continuous, coriBtaut agitation
and never-ceasing effort did result in
depleting the state of West Virginia of
nearly all its practical miners whom the
impositions of the'operators had not
, already, driven out. . The culmination
of all this is, that although West Virginia
' has more than' 50,000 men "employed.
their homes? Are the guards less aggressive?. Are the weapons they use
lesB deadly ? Have the operators grown
more liberal? Or does this critic of our
organization*believe that perhaps theee
foreign workmen wiil assert themselves
differently than have our own American
workmen?  -
As a mattor of fact, let me announce
thus publicly that not only, has  the
with such qualities that make him a
peerless leader of men will be loot to
organized labor,   Such a man can no
more be turned from his natural bent
than the tides. ,       '
'    i  ' ' " .* " '■"
In this hour of his affliction no more
pleasurable thing could happen tnan to
read the-numberless tributes paid to
President Mitchell by. the press of the
country, with scarcely an exception.
United Mino Workers of America taken j Froin t"Ke pens of an conie priceless and
additional steps to prevent these decep*
tions sought to be practised, upohthe
workmen of Europe, but the entire
American labor movement will add its
strength to these efforts, and information
wi.l.uo'lllcd with the Uuitcd States government that will put an end for ever
to this dastardly attempt' to" beguile
decent workmen to migrate to n state
where conditions aro far less favorable
than prevail in the countries from which
they should oomo. ■

"the mine owners find themselves handi

funds contributed by non-union, coal-
operators, proceeds to the old country,
there to induce practical English speaking men to Iceato in tho state from
which, 20,000 men wero ,driven because
of the unfair mining conditions..
Ho will not dony the statement that
his salary was paid from money contributed by tho coal operators, and if he

It took a thousand tons bf coal every

that terrible'inferno. We are told that
'Jflames,-under the influence of forced
draft, licked out into the hold,'and as
the tour of iluty'of each man expired he
dropped his shovel arid staggered away,
groping for the air vents. All through
Tuesday afternoon the coal passers and
firemen worked at top speed, arid the
evening saw no cessation. About 7.15
.o'clockia firoman,-overcome-byheat-and
physical strain, suddenly went insane.
He attacked his fellows with his shovel,

From this it will be seen that the

Minnesota has happily escaped<a' tarnished reputation so far iD tho progress
of the strike on tho iron range. There
has been no bloodshed, no armed clash
between the strikers and the authorities
to disgrace the state's name like that"
of Colorado or California. That is nor
the fault, however, of,certain misguided
citizens who thought to preserve peace
by lawless and hi-jh'handed.treatment
of thestriking workmen.-  .,
The New York Nation,Jn its current
number, chortles gleefully over the incident at Ely, where the townspeople
escorted one Lundstrom, an organizer
for the union, to the railroad station
in "a,jeering crowd," and sent, him
away on pain'of rough handling. The
editor glories in this act.
" i
The lawless conduct of citizens and;
the extra legal acts of officers at' Nash-
wauk,' in breaking up lawful meetings
of the strikers, brought on a hair-trigger
situation that required much diplomacy
to settle. The ignorant strikers, up to
this time, have'shown more self-control
and a better sense of justice ihan"some
of the intelligent American citizens
who thought to quell them and preserve
■Maw arid order" by illegal means.—

The " Kilties" have a world-wide reputation, having.toxued over 900,000 miles
in Canada, United States,'Mexico and
Europo. When tho " Kilties " wero on

A large" audience assembled in thc
oiir, yet he preferred to form a colony in New Lanark and die a poor
man in the States. What incentive
did 1 William Morris-,  the' poet, have,
Unjon Hall last Sunday,  when .. the j and Bl/rns and Shelley and Miltb '
usual meetmg-.of Pernie local-   was   with.h;'s pa;adise losi and p&r^
held. • Mr.  J. Blakemore was  ..voted
'.to the  chair,  and  after singing one
of the.inspiring" socialist songs, gave
a few.remarks.   He instanced a-case
'in New- York where a lady's favorite
'dog had.  died and   its funeral   had
cost $500, whilst there' were T honest
.workers who had contributed to the
.world's good could' not afford to he
buried decently, *all due, to the'system of exploitation which one worked' and lived under.   '
* Mr. W.. McLaughlan.was then called upon.-for'a song, and'.very"  ably
responded   , with.     .''The     Anchor's
.Weighed.;,'- " -.    rf.   .
...The secretary then' stated - there
were a. lot of S. D. F. and.I. L.
Peers arriving, from the' Old -..Country
and he"extended-,*;on behalf of Fernie
,lochl, ai hearty invitation to co-op-'
erate with them in their efforts to
advancejthe cause of' socialism. .""""
After the singing of another song,'
the speaker of the evening, Mr. J.
Harrington, was called "upo» to give
an address on socialism and; incentive, and proved himself to be an
ject in.a forceful and lucid manner
He. remarked '".that anyone who . :had
a stoneTto throw;at socialism, had
thrown-" incentive,' and he believed
that Solomon was not the' wisest
man on "earth 'or else he would, have
*■ asked for incentive instead of wis-
,'dom. What was incentive?- It was
a , motive power impelling men to
ae-tion; a power that incited men to"
do something and'he would like to
refer them to some of the first-class
minds.of tho past so that they might
take an historical view . of' the Incentive that had prompted these men*
to benefit tho world as they had-
'done. Karl Marx was 'born of the
middle.classes and could have been
removed from penury if he had chosen. When he was writing his book
which lias revolutionized the world,
he .refused money from Prince Bismarck,.'Which was offcrod 11 howould
not publish it', yet ho prefcrrod to
live in'eiilo ln London. What incon-.
tlvo prompted him when he could
havo lived.ih ease and luxury—certainly not tho incentlvo of gain.
What about Robert, Owen. With his
money he could havo lived in spldml-
rogained, It took hiin 20 'years*"to
produce these two books, and - ho
only got' $75 for both of them and
lost his eyesight as well. The incentive that prompted these men was a
love for their fellow man, and this
was' a greater incentive than gain:
It was the'incentive: pf riches that
produced . such conditions as Upton
Sinclair depicts in his book. It was
the incentive to gain that produced
such an abnormal'amount of" poverty," misery, vice and degradation as
was manifested today.. If it was
true that ^socialism would- kill incentive, vvhat about the Greek Republic? Surely this state would have
produced as poor a set*;of citizens as
could" be1 expected" but on. the . contrary* it produced some of the 5nest
minds in. painting,-medicine, astronomy..'and sculptor'as the'world has
ever .seen. What . about Socrates,
Plato; Brito, Glauco, igatho and a
host of others—incentive was "not
killed there. Socialism'' would not
destroy incentive, for as Ruskiin said
no great work'was ever'written,, no
but it was for the love'of the work.
Under socialism there" would be five
to. ten tinits as much incentive as
there is now." ■> '    ■"
