. . There was a good*-attendance on
Sunday'.night in the Union Hall
when the Ternie socialist party
held -  their     weekly , educational
* meeting.     I>Ir.  J.'  Shooter -presided,* and the meeting opened by the
. singing    of   a labor    song,    after
which'  Mr.  J. Harrington recited
""Thanatopsis."    Mr.   Chippendale
then sang. "Oro Pro Nobis."
• The speaker' of the evening, Mr.
W.  Mint on, was then called upon
' to give an address-on "Capitalistic Economics    of   Waste."      The
speaker,  during  the course of- his
remarks,   said:   We have ' all been
■'    taught  to believe there ■ was     no
w>iste whatever under our'-resent
system, 'but it was easily demon-,
strated    without -    any   statistics
whatever  that  there, was ' waste,
and a great amount, too, and we
could all'verify it from    personal
observation'.    It  could be    easily
.   .proved from the two principal in-*
-. dustries of cour, own locality.
The* mountains all around us were
clothed ■ with timber, but in course
of. time the timbermen came along
and cut it down and sent-it to the
mill. What „was done with the
residue? It was left „ just where
it -; had fallen,  and it formed    an
,. ideal, position for* a forest fire,
and when,a fire did occur,• thousands of good timber was destroy^
ed.- Then, when the timber got
to - the mill, there, was an endless
waste. Was there, no use '.for all
the odds and ends that was cut
of the' lumber?   Yes,  it could   be
0 burnt,, "and there was enough
waste to keep Fernie in firewood
■ ' all the winter, but the cry was it
, would not pay to cut it into firewood. Then"" what about the
waste in coal mining?. He „knew
a mine where only 25 per cent, of
the  coal was  extracted,    and"  it
- was .all because'their cry-was for
immediate' profits.' - The .same'
thing applied to "hydraulic* gold
Most' of the gold that was got
was for adornment purposes, and

- ity. It was a* waste of labor.
Take ,the case of- human labor and
the railways were responsible for
more- deaths than what "occurred
in the Boer war. One of the great
wastes of the- capitalist system
was its waste of .human life.
What, about the , armies and navies? .It  seemed  to-be  the   policy
n of the present system, to " maintain a portion of the human race
on purpose to.fight the other portion; the same with the penitentiary system, Sir Thomas 'Moore
says, you'first make a thief and
then punish him, and the largest
part of first offenders.' .Vip't..*.o
hardened criminals. There was 50
per cent, of tho human family en-
- gaged    in    non-productive  labor,
and it was time this waste of effort' was stopped' and we    began
to  put  our house in  order.     All'
this waste can bo done away with
*    when-we 'awaken to'a conscious*
n    iiess'of ourselves.    .. '
Tho address evoked a profitable
discussion,  and the  speaker    ap-
, penred    to    be at   his best when
answering  some   of  tbe questions
which-wero fired at him,'
The next meeting will bo held
at the usual time on Sunday
How much have they cost? How
much havo they gained?
Government statisticians have
collected figures which show that
during the twenty-five years from
3 881   to 1005, there wero 30,fiQ7
strikes-arid 1-,546-lockouts'*, in the0
United States.-•-■   ■ ,        ,.-=,- -■-     . ■"
These labor disturbances involved 199,945 " establishments and
'7;444,279 wage" earners. In consequence of . them-.'there was" a
direct financial, loss of;?5,00,000,-
000. ,    -.       -        ... 7 ' ..    •
-That's h'o'w much strikes .cost—,
in-money.      .■  ■  ' <•
What thev cost in life and suf-
* ... -i.
fering is beyord computation.
Have strikes paid, then?
We should say. unhesitatingly,
"Yes," and we shotild be glad to
tell you why we say l,"Yes."
- A strike is a protest. A- great
strike is an original protest.
' Some" of these organized protests .- have lost. The powers
against, which they iought have
been too mighty. ."All,their cost
in wages-and suffering, and sometimes life,' has seemed to go for
nothing. .Others have won, and
have brought fnen' self-respect and
recognition' \5and ; consideration.
They-have resulted in a certain
degree of economic' and social independence.. ,_. "■* '
It has been' the exception when
a great,strike was not inspired by
principle. One man may be unreasonable, but a federation so
immense that it increased last
year by 188,000 members moves
like,,an .army.'. -Organized., labor,
has now" enlisted 1,538,970 mem-,
bers, an, increase; of ,1,274,145
within the last ten^years.
One man; may i.fight.;because he
is quarrelsome; an.army goes on
the field for cause. , . ■ , ■
-, The American , -.Federation * of-
Labor has been holding its 27th,
anniversary convention at Jamestown. President Gomp.ers defined,
its attitude .when''he. said at the'
opening session: ,,
"Labor today stands erect, looking the world in the face, insisting'
upon equal treatment", equal 4-p-
portunity" and resenting .any - at-,
tempt at injustice or wrong.''
' Has' organized labor made mis-
takes? So has government.- So
has religion.' Even civilization
and human progress have    known
_i.r>, « +_*4-_*.r«_ e_+ (,-f a*l "-av__Q4-l_+*ho_U_ J4 T*,_
But" organized labor has helped
the world' on. It is one of -, the
bridges which are spanning tke
great chasm 'between the rich and
the poor. It' is one of the forces
which are compelling a recognition  of  the brotherhood  of man.
The strike's which" have,been 1 unjustified need 'not count. .The1
struggles which have cost human
life and human suffering are only
a' part of the onward movement..
The money loss is of no real im-,
portance. Even those almost, holy
battles which have been lost in
the "long fight against selfish"0""-1'
nnd migiic, tne'se"'may be set aside
also. They ought to have- been
won, but they were lost.
Well, no matter, '   '
The principle is there, and if. we
bolieve at all that the best must
win in the end, wo must be broad
visioried enough to see that everything that helps us toward that
best is good,'—Cincinatti i'tfit.

• Winnipeg, Novl 16—Sir William
VanHorne, chairman of the board
.cf, directors of.the C.P; R., is in
the city with H. J. Whigam, of
New York;.W. K. Whigam, London,, England, and' others. - Sir
William mentioned that he bad
come west on his,'- annual trip
which had, now for - many years
been a regular institution, He
would go out to Selkirk to'havo
a look at his farm, i.hovi^h he
was afraid he was neglecting- lis
"hobby; as last year he had. only
spent a couple of hours at Selkirk, On Monday he and his
friends, went west to Moosejaw,
from where' they would* tako tho
Soo line and travel'over the portion of thut line west to St. Paul.
With .regard to C, P, R. developments he excused himself bo referring to Sir Thomas Shaugh-
.nwssy's visit. Sir Thonias, ho
said, was now tho' recognized
.spokesman ,of the road, and* no
doubt he had coverud the ground
whin last in Winnipeg-. As far1 as
he (Sir William) knew, thoro was
nothing in innnediato preparation.
Ho thought the Soo-Spolrano
lino was destined to become a
great artery of tho west. Asked
with regard to tiro financial
stringency, Sir William said that
anything lie or • anybody olso
could suy was only a pious opinion and probably not wqith tho
breath it wus uttorod with,
With nn ironical twinkle in his
eye, Sir William professed to know
much less about present western
conditions than his interviewer,
Ho ventured the statement, how-
over, that any depression was
.artificial, and the prosperity of
tho west rested ou far too sound
.u. basis to he set back for any
lengtn ot   time.    Ait tae tanners

that the gentlemen who were

say whether they contemplated operations of any kind in the west.

One Kiiled4n  Old fernie
/Resident injured. :  :
Sask., Nov. 22.— As
a result of an accident which took
place about 10.45 this morning at
A building which is-'being erected
as an exrtension to the city pow-
- er house on Manitoba street east-
one man is dead and two injured,
one rather seriously. The, dead
man, is George Nethercott,* a
single man aged about- 30 years,
who was employed as a laborer.
The injured are Contractor W
Lawrence^ and Chas. Fenwick,
carpenter. Mr. Lawrence is in
most serious condition, having
one leg fractured, *" several . ribs
broken and head badly cut. Mr.*
Fenwick has a hand badly cut and
otherwise badly bruised and shaken up.   '■ „       7, -
- At,present the work, going on in
the building.is -that of '-erecting
supports for the roof. These are
four steel "trusses; weighing about
a ton each" One is placed at each
end of.the roof and.the other two
between them. Three of these had
been erected last night, and the
fourth .was. put in position-, this
morning..., At 10.45 they fell,
crushing the men below.   -■   . •
„ At the time the -Occident occurred, as far as can'be learned, only
three men were inside the - building, while one was.,on top of one
of the trusses. The men ■ on the
floor inside were .Contractor Lawrence, foreman J allies Price and
George Nethercott. Price was at
the east end of the building hammering a stick into the ground,
while Lawrence'was standing near,
him. Nethercott' was presumably
, somewhere near the centre oi' the
building. ' * _  ■
Suddenly Lawrence noticed- that
the. trusses were, giving way   and,
shouted to Price to, run,    at' the
•"■ same  time* rushing  towards      the

Mrs. Ernest Thompson Seton,9, wife
of Ernest Thompson Seton, is shining
forth ln a field that few women have
entered, that of.the gun, the,camp and
the pack pony.' * Her latest book,
"Nimrod's Wife." is a brisk and gay
narrative of hunting experiences ln
the Sierras, In the Rockies, on the Ottawa river ;and In Norway. . It is a
groat little book, one that the modern
American ..woman will read with keen
enthusiasm, wishing she bad been a
part of such scenes bf care free'excitement in. the open. , But the' main

of mending—fire nil indicative of neatness and self respect. .A girl who
looks after her personal appearance
will see that the home is scrupulously
tidy and orderly.
There is an*.'old proverb that "ii's
bail, to be poor; but it's doubly.' bad to
look poor.", The girl who is tidy and
neat, in, the little dctaiis of lier dress
will not,show,the empty state of her
purse nearly so much as she'who allows her clothes to become 'draggled
and unkempt and the tidy girl will
certainly be far more likely to meet
a good anil'worthy" man, whose honest, strong liauds will labor for her.   ,

. not.'attempt*to make his escape
irom the * building,' but' retreated'
: to a corner. In an instant-the"
. heavy beams' of steel fell, striking
Lawrence and, Nethercott. while
Price, back against the wall, was''
not touched by anj of the descending" steel. There was no
method of escape for * Fenwick,
who was on, top of one of the
trusses. He fell with the'(truss he
was on, and • suffered his injuries'
through the fall.
The cause"'of the,, accident is not
definitely known. The trusses
were supported by two purloin
'..plates extending' over the whole.*
four, and by guy ropes.. It is supposed that one of the guy ropes
broke or was loosened,
The unfortunate workman who
was killed, 'George Nethercott; is
v,n Irishman, who had been in
this country for over a, year. His
skull, and body were badly crushed* by the steel.—Winnipeg Free
Press. ' '
Contractor Lawrence was . well
known in Fernie, having    been a
resident in this' city for a number
of years,   His many friends   wish
" him a speedy recovery.
One of tho, most curious results
of the Hoe of the X-rays is a form'
of burn over tho place which Is
.subjected to tho.rays,
Mr. C. R, Wilson, of Toronto
Junction, s,iys; ''Some time ago
I had occasion to'uee the X-rays
on my hand. The rays burned tho
buck of it und left the aln'n in a
peculiar condition. During- the
winter ono of tlio knuckles so affected, cracked, and it would not

this balm henlud the crack quick-

All these tales of the' hunting field
Mrs. - Thompson Seton" relates with
much gusto and snap. She is a born
story teller and ,the Incidents reel off
vividly from her pen. Not until late
In' the book, when the chnpters ' on
Norway hunting are reached, does
this woman hunter concede that sho

Children's Pocket Money.
As soon as a child is old enough'to
ask for a penny to spend for itself a
small weekly allowance should be given and tho child taught to save a por-'
tion of it for. presents, etc. No matter how few the pennies a child should
know just how" many to expect during
the week and on what day.
- This wlinoheli'tho value of money—a
valuable lesson—a lid it will al30 tench
the little one how to'be generous and
self denying by carefully saving up
some of those'sjiine cherished pennies
for a present for'soine one else.

While the- prompt 'and"energetic
action of the Provincial government, in calling for the arbitration as by statute provided,1' has
had* an immediate effect    an ;. the
„ supply of fuel to the up-country-
smelters, the' question has' arisen
in not a* few 'minds-as to whether
—once the deterrent effect' of., the
lesson has worn off--rthe evil may
not occur again. ;.'
It is  easy,   of- course  to  accuse
such,doubters''of pessimism.   But;,
unfortunately,.enough particulars
„." were brought to light during 'the'
agitation, which' resulted in , the
government's - action', ,jto prove beyond all doubt that the statutory
provisions ■' made for the purpose
of 'ensuring a' regular and sufficient" supply of .fuel to.the Koot-'
enay. and Boundary - smelters. had
. been broken^ through wilful wrong-
' doing, 'and not through unavoidable .  causes.     These    facts being
public property, it is scarcely., to
„. be wondered at that' the public is
' not vdisposed^'to trust the    inborn
"  sense of rectitude of any coal com-
...pany'.to prevent a recurrence - of
the* conditions which created .    so
■> *■ *    . ■ * -• " .i **.  '-, . -
much damage in" our principal industry.   ...   ' 7 ■ -.-- ,    7 ■• ■   . ."•
4  Naturally,   then,, the  cry  arises
sfor  a* remedy  which*--will  prevent
occurring .again  and  again, every
..time that the eye  of.the government-   is , supposed to  be looking
the other way. ",
fl Of course there are those who
propose government ownership as
,a way out of the difficulty. There
are a number of excellent, people
whose ideas o£ the functions of
government are so lofty that
every time their milkman, -nuts a
little more water than usual into
the can,"they raise a howl for the
government to take over all the
dairies in the country, '*   '
. It is a, pretty theory, and a
charming faith, but it will not
work. The " .average government
has* quite' enough to do' already,
without adding to its 'burden,
Moreover,, governments are not
appointed or elected .to peddle coal
by the sack or milk by the quart,
Their 'business is not to peddle,
but to control tlio peddlers. Thero
is the whole thins: in a nutshell.
Government control, if you like,
That is whrit governments nro
made for. But government own*
Trivato initiative, individual enterprise—these are tho things that
■ make a country go ahead, nnd no
machine-made government routine
con ever take their place.'      But'
., private   initiative and individual
enterprise,     being    very    human
things,     aro liable to go wrong.
Then the government stops in and
controls, putting in operation tho
established machinery of tho law,
punishing'    the   black sheep    and
bringing   him   back to   tho fold,
" This is what is meant by the art
of government though it is    not
at all understood in Canada    or
the United States.
Dismissing, then, the dreams of
the socialist, we come to the consideration of the most -> practical
form in which "government" control can be exercised in this particular instance. In order to prevent the starvation of our ' own
industries through their necessary-
fuel being denied them.   .
The simplest plan is to make
the'export of coal and coke, too
expensive to be profitable, by putting on an export duty.   ;    "'
It is safe to say that,.had a
duty been ■ required to b"e paid on
every tori of coal or coke-shipped
by".^the^CrowJs Nest Company to
United -States', '.smelters," there
would never have been-' any •' fuel-
shortage   in    the Boundary'    and
Kootenays.     ".. ",'■'
J" -        -'   -
.The proposition , may seem *   a
little startling, "and it., is 41 quite
certain "that it will be' most., violently opposed.. But let us look
at a few facts. '" : ■ -
' ,One- of the fc'most ' bitterly denounced measures of the present
Provincial government was that
imposing an export duty on'lumber. - Mr.'' McBride- and his M colleagues laid down the hard, cold
principle *■ that. a' country's" raw
material should be manufactured
within its borders. ^They stuck" to
their guns and carried- the measures ~ in the force of the- most
strenuous .opposition; .with the

At the close of the last session
of .the'Provincial legislature, notice, was given that , a measure,
.would be .brought down, next year
to deal in a similar measure with
the exportation of iron1 -ores- from
British Columbia. " Its object was
stated plainly to be the enforcement.^ of the, manufacture of our
raw iron into the various industrial forms.. „by means of plants
erected within our own borders.
The wisdom of the measure is so
apparent that it is difficult to
conceivo of any grounds upon
which it can be opposed when it
comes before tho house. -
But, some will say, if1 an export
duty is placed],ort coal, what becomes,'of-the Vancouver Island
coal-mines, whose lurgcst market
is- the supplying of. the shipping
of Puget Sound and San Francisco?   '
