Iy was    not* very, "greatly pleased
with the way things  were going,
in'the course  of his  remarks    to
Mr.  Justice   Stuart,    gave utterance    to    these    very    significant
words'   "Agitation  is- the  life  of
the, union, and ixu ooon.as things
get working smoothly,, the union
goes to pieces.   The only way   to
keep it alive is to ,keep up an agitation."
Judge Stuart interrupted him by
saying: "That is a .frank statement to'make in court, Mr. Sherman, to which Mr, Sherman replied, "Frank is my.- name, and
I'm always frank."

' Winnipeg, Man., Sept. 20, 1007
Senator -J affray told Ralph
Smith, who told J. G. O'Donog-
hue, solicitor for T. and L. C,
that just,prior to the miner's difficulties last .spring, F. Sherman,
president, District 18, approached
Geoi Lindsey, manager C. N. P.
C. Co., and represented that he
■was in financial straits, asking,
and pressing Lindsey'to help him
out with a "loan, and , that he
(Sherman) would, see that^ Lindsey ' and the^C. N.'P. Coal Co.
■would not lose by it.- The loan
'was made, I think. ,
'J.    G.    O'DONOGHUE.
J. F. LEHENEY.     -
O'D.   says he    advised*"that . in
■ justice to Sherman, if the , charge
was untrue, or to the ..miners if
the charge.was true, the matter
should.be at once cleared, v.p. It
is alleged ,that. Lindsey has. the
documents to prove the charge,
and was willing' to go ahead , if
Jaffray-would'approve. *. Nothing
has since been done.

Dear Sir:.        ">
I am instructed by Mr. i\ H.
Sherman. President of District No
18, of the United Mine Workers
' of America, to draw your attention to a slanderous statement,
alleged to have been made by'ycu
- to Mr. Ralph Smith, M.,'F.', and
by that gentleman repeated to the
Secretary of the Trades and labor
Congress of Canada to the aliect
' that during the ' industrial troubles -between the'Xoal operators

said-district~appToacSs"d""Mr" G7
G. S. Lindsey. then General Manager  of     the    Crow's   Nest  3'a^s

asked and pressed Mr. Lindsey to

more the loan was, .as yon' - ?x-
.pressed it, ViUa'de, I thiatt." Tl'.g
statement, alleged to have been
made,by you has been •.lisi.*iibi*ed
-by  some members   of  the    .Ciades
■ and Labor Congress of Canada,
as well by tho Board of said Dis-'
trict No. 18, bcth of whi.-h, it
appears conrider lhat my' client
should take some action to clear
himself. I need not point, out
to you that' occupying the position that ho does any slanderous
statements to tho affect of those
mentioned are very damaging to
Mr. Sherman, Whilst he does not
wish to engage in litigation, his
instructions are, that unless an
apology and retraction, approved
by me, his solicitor, he forthwith'
made, to bring an action against
you for damages.   •
I trust that you will give this
matter your immediate attention
ns Mr. Sherman -wishes to report
back as soon as pouslblo to tho
Trades and Labor Congrecs and
to said District No. IS, what ho
has done in tho premises and also
-what, if anything, you have dono
therein.

I am "rather astonished at tho
receipt of yours of tho 14th inst.
regarding statements said to
havo boon made about Mr, Sherman to Mr. Ralph Smith, M. P,
by mo,
All I can soy In that I never
mndo such statements either to
Mr. Smith or anyone elso, and I
cannot    believe    that  Mr.   Smith
ever made the statement on    my

Dear'Sir:
Re Sherman.
• I thank you for your • letter of
the 21st inst., and am x*ileased to
have" it stated by you that the
statements attributed to you is
not founded upon fact. 'lam this
day in receipt of a letter from Mr
J.'G. O'Donoghiie, Barrister, practicing in your city', who signed
the memorandum that I quoted
in my first letter to you and who
now states as follows: ■■

spoae to lvir. Leneney aoout

memorandum that you quote
. in your letter, part of wnich
' may be in my handwriting,

to  that."      * , ■      ,
it will thus be seen that a slander greatly, aiiecting, .Mr. biier-
man in his orticial position, was,
de facto originated by someone.
My instructions are to bring
action ,, against all .the "parties,
concerned to the end that in* that
way my client may be. thoroughly' vindicated and"' the slanderer,
whoever he is, may be' brougnt
into light. You may therefore expect to have, an 'opportunity' of
coming- forward and showing
which one told the truth. Rasn'

you have, quoted'"to'nie. The information' was given,to,,me during the last session of the Dominion Parliament' by Ralph Smith,
M. P;, who was -as sincerely
anxious as I was to'-have"'' the
truth vindicated. KSo« opportunity
presented itself to me to do anything until at the last meeting' of
thef,Trades Congress at1 Winnipeg,
when"' I spoke to Mr. Leheney
about the matter. He made , the
memorandum, which I Signed and
I also signed the second memorandum that you- quote in your
letter, part of which may- be^in
my-hand writing, but I have qtiite
forgotten as'tb that.  •
, The subject matter, was not discussed before the Congress at all,
but, so far. as I know, simply between Leheney and me, and it was
left to Mr. Leheney to take what
course' he deemed, best to have
the charge, cleared up. You will
no- doubt be'able to receive at
first hand* a statement of ■ what
has transpired in the west ■ * with
-respect- to—the^mratter since the"
Coi-.gress   adjourned.     I   sincerely
hope, now 'that the matter has
been taken up, that every ■ effort
will be made to get at the truth
of the charge. I shall be glad to
be of any ., assistance to you in
connection with it.
Yours  sincerely,-

said:
I  was  employed
on 30 th Sept.. ;
in No. 9 mine, Coal Creek, owned j
and operated by the' Crow.'s Nest ;
Pass Coal  Company. - ]
My occupation was to bar down '
rocks in narrow places nnd "to j
drill "holes where it was necessary, j
I was ' doing- this .work on that !
day. My work was on incline No. j
3 right. The object of my work |
was to'enlarge'the tunnel. I'wasj
wdeking by orders  of the-flreboss   :
I don't    Know   .his'   name except •
Tom,   On,thisaday I was drilling |
holes.     The   holes  I  was  drilling i
were, foivi shooting. ,  I understand]
what  shooting  holes means,.,     l|
filled  one hole  that. day. " I filled j
it with dynamite. ' I used one and •
a half sticks.  _ There was,, only one '
hole loaded that  I know  of that-;
morning.     " . •■     • I
"I
.1'   knew    a    man*   named Peter j
Johnson. He was working with
me on tho morning of 2uth Fep.-
tember, .1907, doing the same
kind' of work. I know that Peter
Johnson filled a hole with dynamite1' that morning.
■^ I and Johnson went on tshift at
II p. m. on the 19th. I know of
'an accident in the mine about 4
a. iii. of the 20tli.. It'took the
form ,,c.f,a dynamite explosipn,., I
was knocked down by it. I do
not know who set off the shot.
The shot lighter" was. about thirty
feet away when - „explosion occurred. There was no one else present or near. ;,lt is the business of
the shot lighter to' fire all shots.
I* think the shot lighter takes' orders from * the fireboss. It is a
general order- the shot'lighter gets
Irom the fireboss. . There were no
other holes drilled'except the two
mentioned prior to explosioii, One
of the holes spoken of-were tried
by the 'shot' lighter first for. two
or three time.-; and it would not
go., Then the shot lighter cut the
wire about. three feet from the
cable, then he *took, his knife,
scratched, the wire and connected
to the cable. Then he tried it
and it ,did not go. Then Peter
Johnson    said ,we  better  try    to

lighter, who I identify in court
as: Powell, said if the'first hole
don!t go, then we will have two.
Then Johnson-says the chances
aie the caps are good,-wo better
try it...The shot lighter'says all
right. Peter Johnson and I went-
down to get some powder, When
we left I'noticed the cable was
connected - to the battery. „We
went for powder about 20 or 25
feet from the charged holes,       We

discretion where and when I work
'during tlio night:
I know of-an accident iii the
mine on morning- of the 20th September.- There was a manu hurt
who died from the effects. ' His
name was Peter Johnson. The
accident took the form of a dynamite explosion,* .At 4 a.m., Sen
tern her- ,20th, 1907, I went tb ITo.
3 right incline as'per plan pro-
diiced for the . purpose of firing
two shots.'' I first attached the !
wire of the battery, to the charjj- ;
ed hold in deep r*oad.' Af-er mak- !
ing- p-repnr.itions I endeavored "to |
fire the shot,' 'but failed, o The
cause of "the failure I .don't quite-;
know. Then I made arrangements [
with Peter Johnson to charge the ;
secdnd.-hole'with dynamite, which!
he did. Jn the meantime I:arran^-
ed mv battery... At tthe time of i
the explosion 1 was ensfaeed male- i
ing an examination,-of the - cable i
for the vmn.'ose of Caidin.s: out if . v
it was brolton or hot.' While in : JJ*
the act of doin-? so the ex-olosion'i ?
took place. I was about eight \ ^
yards and a .foot from scene of ] •*>
explosion at the time.1'.After the . ♦
explosion, as soon'as I'could re-j ♦
cover mvself, I went-forward and I *
found Peter Johnson and John j 2
De Baptiste"on the, floor. X saw , ^
the seriousness of the accident at.j<>
a' 8flp_n.ee. The:5 I went for help.
This is all I know about it/
I don't * know where Spruston
was at the time of accident'. The

The
brought the powder back to about
ten feet from the loaded hole and
about five feet from the unloaded
hole. Then , we went 'up to the
loaded hole and disconnected the
wire from tho cable. We took the
cable near to the unloaded hole.
Then we took, the powder and
charged the second hole. - Peter
Johnson said to the shot lighter
you better move the cable from
the straight line to ,the left hand
side. The shot lighter moved the
cable. We cut the wire from the
nee ond charged hole. Then we
took tho knife,' scratched .the wire
to connect with the second, charged hole, Johnson aiid I connected, the ...first wire and whon wo
tried to connect tho other wire and
on the second turn of tho second
wirearotmd the cable the. shot
wont off in the last hole charged.
Tho shot lighter was about 30
feet from tho hole that exploded
at tho time of oicplosion. I think
ho had tlm battery with him, Tho
blast wont off before wo wero able
to give any warning to tho shot
lighter that thuy wero rondy, I
heard no'warning from tho shot
lighter beforo thn explosion.
I was conscious tiftor explosion
for 15 minutes, I stinted to holler soon aftor explosion. Tho shot
lighter came and called Johnson
by name. Johnson did not answer.   Tho shot lighter then swore,
Johnson and I wero doing tho
work as wo wero instructed and
was part of our regular work. I
do not know if it wns my duty
to do this work or not. I did nol
know or. fool any bump about

was disconnected and  on the  side
at time  of explosion.
The hole that exploded had
been primed and ready for discharging, The men were uot using any tools that might have
caused friction at time of explosion. The hole; was about two* feet
deep. ' There may have been two
sticks in' it or ono and one-half.
A wooden tamper was used, and
mud was used, to stem the hole
with; I disconnected the battery
from the cable soon, after.John
De Bautis'te noticed' it attached.
I put the lever ig my pocket. In
my estimation it was just as safe
connected providing I had the
lever ia my pocket,
There were many bumps off and
on during that night, some of
them very severe. I do not know
if the bumps could- have discharged the. shot,'
, I put,lever in niy pocket'just as
soon as I,failed to flro tho " first
shot. I do not know who connected tho wires for the shot that
failed at the first hole, If tho
man connected the wires on first
hole I do not consider I was
breaking a rule in' allowing it.
I saw Spurtson. about ti a.m.
It waa about 15 minutes between
timo tho first hole missed and
time of explosion. Rulo No. 17,
••Special, Rulss,'' would not apply
in this caso. Length of cable to
tho battery about 70 foot; longth'
of cap and wire about fl foet.
I attached the cable to tho battery in case of first hole. I got
into safe place, gave tho aignnl,
and whon overytuing looked safe
1 turned tho lever, Tho cable
when I waB examining it wan in
tho ct'iitre of track, It was not
touching any of tho rails to tho
best of my knowledge, The cable,

is coatod with tin bo coatings of

Re Sherman Slander.
Dear Sir:
I enclose    a    copy -of    a letter
which ' I:'have  this   ' day. received
irom Mr. J, G.  O'Donoghue, who,
you    will  notice,    has , suggested
that I refer,  as therein stated, to
you.   .Kindly    advise'   me  in 'the
premises.   This   report   concerning j
I Mr.   Sherman    will,    evon  though j,
i absolutely untrue, injure,, him very "I
much., Already  ho   has   experieriu- j
cd tho   a:"c"-t   oi    such" a  slj.nder, j
i hat may laid it ■'•still .more a'ggra- \
j vating if he -offer himself-for    re- j
;'election,    as   President   of 'District ,
j Uo.  13.  IT.    M.  V,'.- of. A.   I need,
'. not toll you that any false report ;
concerning   any  men,   no   'matter';
: how- false    it  may TieJ   ..may    do I
- him    some   'injury,    as   there are '
, ihany - ■.■.•.charitable ' people    who
: not -only believe that    the report
. true,  -but even   though they may.
: think-it untrue,   will nevertheless
'circulate  it  and lead'others to be-
ported back to" District 18 of the '■ !ieve in its truth. '   I trust, there-'
United .Mine Workers of America, i fore,  that you will assist   mc,  or
The  said District decided'that 'it'! my. clients;  in seeing  that justice
was necsssary to  ascertain what,
if any, truth there was in the' re-
rticnioran-
I have  also    another

C'-iargo was untrue, or to the
Mviinu-j ji t-he *c:ir.:'ge ,wa&. true,

that Lindsey, has the ■ dueii-*'-

*' RE SHERMAN.'
Dear Sir:,
I beg to thank you for your letter of the 25th instant. On yesterday I-received a letter.from tho-
Honourable Senator Jaffray, who,
in reply to my. communication to
him, states as follows:
"I am   rather   astonished at
the   receipt of   yours of   the*
14th     inst.   regarding    statements said, to have been mado
about    Mr,   Sherman to    Mr,
Ralph Smith,    M. P., by mo.   ■
All I can say is that I never
made such   statements,    either
to' Mr,  Smith or anyone else,
and I cannot believe that Mr.,
Smith over   made   the    statement on my authority."
If Mr, Ralph Smith quoted Sen-
ntov JalTray an you state, ho did
aud   which   statement , on   your
part I bolievo,  thou   Smith    was
mistaken ,or else the Sonatar was
misunderstood,   I may  say   that
District No,  18, U.  M, W.  of' A.,
decided to probe this matter    to
its depth,'it being desirablo that
its president should oither ho vindicated or otherwise dealt with.
Yours faithfully,

or secondary .to  capital.'   In  our
opinion   labor   should' rank, first,
must be apparent to every thinking person who' has studied* social
conditions at. all that, nine-tenths
of the poverty and, crime, and
consequently misery, squalor, vice
and sin is attributable- to the
present capitalistic system;. Luxurious living- and idleness   fosters
,. vice and crime on the ,one hand;
ignorance, poverty and misery
produce like results-on the other
hand; the present economic system enriches the rich at the ex--
pense of the poor, and the riches
of the poverty turn out to be *a
curse to .both, and it is. because
we believe that the greatness of a
nation does, not consist in its
wealth and power nor in its poverty and ignorance, but in the
character of its men and .women
that we aro met tonight to raise
our protest against a system
which wo helieve is crushing and
dwarfing the development of true
manhood und womanhood instead
ot' being a help to the develop,
ment'of tho best nnd the noblest
which is in man, and any nation
which does not help men to develop tho highest within thorn
will sooner or later sink into ruin
und decay, Don't you think
there would be moro honest    and
.virtuous peoplo'in tho world if we
had*an: industrial   system whoro
to
power'-, of
i hands and brain's could produce
more,"but if labor ..power* bf hands
and brains were to 'disappear no
more wealth would be created.
Labor should therefore stand* first
and foremost, but capitalism reverses the order azid "puts labor
next to capital. Lincoln's ;; words
aro true when he said, capital is
the fruit of labor, labor is the
superior of capital and deserves
much- the higher consideration.
Again capitalism causes a superabundance "of the necessities - of
life to bo produced, and by so
doing causes need and,distress
when the workers have produced
more commodities .than the market demands,'factories mills and
shops are closed down; and because the workers havo only been-
receiving a bare subsistence, when
the wonts are closed down ' they
have not tho means to buy back
the things they havo produced and
as a result they have to go hungry because ,thoy have produced
too much tood;'shoeless because
thoy have produced too many
shoes; thoy go in shabby clotheB
because they have produced too
many clothes. If the means ot
production were owned collective,
ly, when an overabundance ■ was
created, thoy could tako a rest
until tho excess was consumed,
Ihen capitalism is wrong because
tho value it puts on commodities
and
.   „ _,    soc
ialist party, which" is a political
movement, the object- of which is
to put an end to .exploitation by
changing private' ownership of the
.earth-'and other means'of production into collective ownership by
all the people, to ■ be democratically controlled by them in their
own interests.  . •   '

THE TWO    ORPHANS.
The .announcement that the
great play," "The Two-Orphans,"''
is coming to' our city, is a matter
of much import to the' theatregoers in our midst. No drama of
modern times has enjoyed- the
vogue that has been accorded to
this classical translation from the
French, The. reason is .<pparent.
The play .is interesting Irom the
rise of the curta'in on the fust e.ct
until tho final-fall m The„ fifth.
The'climaxes are stro-.ig ;..rd exciting, and the story is t ne that
will appeal to all classes of theatre-goers, no matter what their
position in life, may'be. The situations, lines , and the incidental
business of the play arc of such a
nature that, they compel the in-
divided attention of the spectators. A strong vein .of .cou-dey
runs through' the play, but it is
so placed that' never at any time
does it conflict with tho more'serious.scenes.' The author has been
careful'to preserve the dramatic
^unities, his characters are finely
drawn and as. true to nature , as
possible,     ' ■>
"The Jwo Orphans," with a
complete scenic, costume and
lighting equipment, will be presented in' the Fernie Opera House
on Thursday, November 88th, by
the Dominion Stock  Company.    *

Public ownership of public util-
' ities is the question primarily' bo-
ioro tho city council of Fernie at
the prasent' moment. Tho principle of public or municipal own-
' Hi-ship requires no' apology from
us—In theory it is correct. Tho
people r.houlil own what aro absolute necessities nnd have control 01 thepe lieci'SKities.
