A very serious, accident occurred
at the' cut bank on , tho ' Great

about two miles west of Hosmer,
during- the early hours of Monday

one- man - and injury to another.
The dead man's name is L.-0.
Taylor, who, with tho injured man
was working with a shovel in
front of the big steam shovol and
tho mountain,-which was perpetually -on. tho run as tho huge
mechanism was oating- out chunks
of the hillside. At a timo when
riono' of tho other workmen woro
paying i particular attention to
tho two men engaged in tho dangerous task botweon tho slipping
o'artli and tho shoveller, a larger
earth slide than usual took place.
Thoir fellow workmen wero - .horrified tb see one man standing
erect submorged to liis armpits',
and" in .tho * confusion," of the
moment everybody stems' to have
forgotten tho second laborer,
Tho ni'an-Jn sight was immediately rescued and was able to
walk to the camp.
. A search was then prostcatod
i'or iho. missing man, who; aftor
somo delay, was found lying down
under about a foot of soil . ap*
■pnroritly dead." Every effort was
mado to get tho stricken man to
the hospital without delay, ond
this was accomplished by tho
ftiithorltii'H In charge of thn construction gang.
Upon being admitted to tho ho«*
pitnl. the unfortunate man was
pronounced by tho doctor to bo
dead, nnd was removed to the
undertaking parlors of Scott anil
Ross to await tho coroner's orders.
On Wednesday morning Coroner

Granby Consolidated," which' owns
extensive copper mines at=Pheo-
ni-Jtj 23 miles distant, 'and the
largest copper smelting works in
, Canada, here iri Grand Forks, arrived on Saturday? from Spokane.
After a conference with    A.    B.

Hodges,  the local* manager,    Mr.
Graves stated that the directors
of the company, had decided, to reopen the mines of the company on
December 5th. and the smelter two
or i three days later, giving employment to some POO men when
operating at full capacity...
'Asked .for     a   statement,"   Mr.'-
Graves said:,
tVSince the closing of bur mines
and. smelter .about three weeks
ago, because of "the low price of
copper and " our j high operating
costs, we have been able to bring
about some reductions iii our.cost
of supplies and general, expenses,
„ and have been approached by some
of -our former employees asking if
..weicould resume onrthe scale- of
.wages'paid about-a year ago p.nd
as.Jnow-in eiTsr-t! -at, Rossland,
B^tte and elsewhere.* -.Under the.
proposed £$dyctions ' the, Granbjy
"company can -afford to again operate, and' we have decided to
start our mines, on December 5th,
and the smelting works two or
three days later.; I am of. 'he
opinion that the price of    copper
v will remain at 12*to 16 cents-per
- -, * . -.. ^ ■

tween 23 and 30 miners, possibly
more, are entombed in the Naomi
mine of the United Coal Company,
located three,  miles west Jof • this.
- "city, and there is practically, no
hope that they are alive.     Their
..imprisonment- is. due .-to, an  explosion    of black damp  about   8
-o'clock last night, soon.after the
night shift went to work:
. . Pittsburg, Dec.'2;—The fate,  of
five -American and 42 foreign miners, - while - not  definitely known,
'• was;pretty-well established'    late
today'bv*the"finding of the body
of a mine pumper near the' 22nd
entry of the Naomi-   mine   of the
, .United Coal Company at Fayette
City, ,35 ..miles from this .city.'. The'
man had*, died of suffocation.   " Y
'". Judging;from "the two fatalities
^-fji^c—fnr^lrnnwjj, ^,both have=bsen-
Vcaused by poisonous gas; it .is al-'
, most certain that the 47 ,', miners
- suc'ciimbed*'-to the 'deadly damp.
■- uuccembed' to the deadly * damp.
.There, is,   also a possibility   -that
the'  explosion'   of last night   oc-
vc'ivrred.'so close to the,'men that
they were killed* by .its force. " or
' the 'resultant' fall" of toriw of rock
and"earth..  Since  shortly after 8
o'clock last night a large force of
rescuers    have .labored constantly
-in an effort to .reach the imprisoned men. .The work has been'neces-
,sarilyslow" on    account    of    the
wreckage after '.the explosion     of
damp.   Notwithstanding'the   fact
that the rescue, party has worked
in one minute reliefs, a score   or
more   of    the   number! have been,
compelled    to  go to thoir homes
suffering from tho poisonous gas.
Two of the rescuers are in a critical condition.     All day long    a
crowd of 2,000 people have stood
about tho mouth   of .the ill-fated
mino    awaiting somo    news from
tho entombed men.   Hundreds    of
these persons    are relatives , and
friends of tho unfortunate miners,
and their grief is   pitablo. '     Tho
rescuers aro dlvidod in opinion as
to whon they will roach, the     entombed   mon.     Soinu believe the
ond of their search will como lata
tonight, wlyllo others do not look
on this until tomorrow   ovoning.
In the meantlmo it is tho gonoral
opinion that all of the   men    aro
dead,—Nelson News.
is no necessity for a license at
present. It may be that, in the
spring a, license" will be necessary,
but at present there is not, and I
will''therefore affirm the finding of
the Commissioners. '

The miners-,at Rossland have
voted to accept the old scale of
wages in force prior 'to July 1st.
The vote stood 353 ' in favor of
The reduction and 116 against.
Thc wages prior to July 1st were
§3.50 a day for machine men.and
82:75^ day for shovellers. . Since'
then the wages that have prevailed have been S4 a day for machine men and ?3.25"a*"day for
shovellers.' ,The, wages of "timber-
men,' -blacksmiths and others employed aboiit'-.the mines were "also
advanced.proportionately on July
1st. '. A,    .'...'.      ''.*'..'
.Owing to.the.low price of .the
metals, the profits of the mines
were. considerably decreased, so
that in'some"instances they went]
.to the ..vanishing point.. The sit-'
uation was -understood - !t>y the
membersi of the union, and the
intimation was' recently made by
_th<LJ*iine7managers.^that—unless-
the' scale of wages was decreased,"
the mines "and smelters would be
compelled to cease operations "until metals brought a higher price.
The result of the polling was chat
the resolution was carried by- a
two-thirds majority, ,. This will
prevent the closing .down of the
mines, which would have been, a
.calamity to nearly every individual in the community.
The employees' of the • Trail
smelter have also accepted a cut
in wages.
FINDING OF JUDCE WILSON IN
MICHEL LIQUOR APPEAL.
In tho matter of an appeal by
Simon Dragon from tho doci»lon
ot the Bourd of Liccnao Commissioners:
Tho application mado by the appellant is for a wholesale'liquor
license at Michel. Tho application
is opposed on two grounds—first
that tho applicant is not a lit
and propor person to have a lie-
onse, and second, that in any
event a wholesale liconso at tho
point mentioned ia unnecessary,
Tho affidavits of, witness Mod
chevrp that in lhe opinion of the
rtnponentn, Mnnnvn, Johnson nnd
Quail, the applicant wan a fit and
propor person. As against this in
the evidence ot the Chief Liconse
Inspector that the applicant is not
*>, fit nnrl V4rnpr>r rieroMi to lipid a
license. That question is therefore
one which, If necessary, I would
uso my own discretion, but ao my
other finding dispones of the ap-
poal, I will not deal with it.
In my opinion there in at tho
present no necessity for a whole-
Knit- license At Michel, and T can
not see how a man could make a
living. That, of course, has nothing; to do with my finding, but
it ii useful in showing that   there

At"the "joint convention in Chicago' in 1398 ho was elected' chairman of tho miners' scale committee. The. eight-hour day . was
agreed' to at that convention, an
advance in-' the ' mining, rate of
practically -IS" per cent. ' and, a
uniform inside day wage scale.  .

. When, the Hocking -operators refused to attend tho joint convention in 1899 it was Lewis that
convinced them to sign' tho agreement made at Pittsburg,
Ho was elected vice-president in
1900 and re-elected every year
sinco.    .
In 1900 he was assigned to tho
southwest .md hold eighteen moot-'
ings in twlevo days and organized
flvo mines nnd helped lay tho
foundation which later established
tho joint movoinent in the southwest.
It is conceded that through his
influonco tho best wngo scale that
existed in Michigan wns agroed to

In tho fall of 1900 ho attended
a joint convention of Diutrict 19
and tho result was an advanco of

A  CRUEL OLD  CITY.
MONTHLY REPORT
What the Excavations at Gezer Havo
' * " . .Disclosed.
Wonderful discoveries have been
made In the ruins of. the' ancient city
■of Gezer, In Palestine. Professor Stewart Macallster, who is now at work on
tlio site, has discovered tho ruins of
eight cities, or periods of building
there, going back to anolent cave
dwellers, 3,000 years B. C. The remains therefore of 5,000 years of apparently almost continuous human llfo
aro seen on this little hill. When a
dwelling fell down or was destroy(>d
the newcomer did not clear away tho
rubble, but reared a. fresh structure on
the ruins of the old, and, digging now
fieep down through these ruins, the
explorer of today has discovered the
nntouched cremaled remains of a cave
dwelling race not acquainted with
metal, also the undisturbed dead of a
Canaanlte tribe with' bronze weapons;
also of a-Canaanltc" "high place," with
the bones of newly born infants, sacrificed apparently to, some uukuown del-
. ty or bones of,Infants buried under
tho corners of house walls,  r
These human sacrifices were, it.is
' believed,  the   "aboniinations"   of  the
Ammonites denounced In the Old Testament.   Human sacrifices * were often
.   offered at the couimencement of -un*
■ dertakings, and it has been shown that
the breaking of a bottle of wine at tho,
. naming,of a ship is but the survival of*
tbo 'aucient  abominable  custom.--  So
-'* also the * Innocent looking Maypole Is
simply ni relic of a pole found in old
pagan temples, traces) of one having
been found in the "high place",or temple of Gezer. Various statements in
the Bible'are amply confirmed by discoveries made by the explorers of the
'society., __" ..'.,*' -7
, Developments at Gezer make it possible to understand more clearly how
,   Samson pulled down the pillars of the
temple.   These pillars were of wood
■ and 'merely rested on "stumps of
stone." The,strong man therefore, had
but to draw the' wooden supports together and off the stone, -> and down-,
came .the Jtemple.- crashing about the

SOCIALISM AND GOVERN-
' MENT OWNERSHIP:
It is , a . common   fallacy    that
socialism and government * ownership, are identical terms, and such'
is thought to be the case with the
.average - man  in ' the ' street."   This
•   was'amply .verified in last-week's
issue ot' '.'The,Ledger" in the.pub-
. lished' exchange" article, '/-The Con-"
'" trol'of'Cbal." '" "■'*:.."   ■
One read there that -government
' ownership*' wa's'7undesirable,~'"but*
government control was. the valve'
byVwhich   private, '.-ownership   of
public utilities! was to be regulat-'
ed and the' dreams of the socialist
33i*s*»isseci .froni the'sane'consideration;      .       _, ,_■_.      i .   ■     ".i.,;
• L6t:,us see how far socialism and
government ownership are, compatible.   Germany'is a  fitting il-
. lustration - of government*., ownership,and'the socialists, poll 30 per
j cent.,of the total electorate. To,,
the*/, unthinking \-mind this .looks
. mighty like, socialism ..being identical "with government ownership,
andjjyet,'what'-jare;-'the"] real* facts?
It is well Known' that:VBismarck'
adopted govemmeiit'.'ownership:'for
the.purpose of. setting .back social*

* N, pw 'a j word; as ,'■ to government
"ioatJol.- j Wbafis a: government?
^.government is considered -to be
a\"bbdy .of men supposed popularly
elected' (vide election protests in
Ontario) to carry-;out; the ^will of-
the?PEOPLE—-|'the dear .people"—
but- an observer., looking „ ,below.
.the, surface of' political' intrigue
conies to the conclusion that 7 a"'
government is a committee appointed to look after'the interests
of. a ruling- class, and that ruling
class is the capitalist class which
appoints governments to - look
after their interests.1' To government, control or government ownership the * capitalist 'always
stands to win-*-t*.e working class
lose,
'-.The position of the socialist towards government , ownership ■ is
paradoxical—we aro: supporters of
such and yet against it. We support state control as the lesser of
evils, also as students of evolution accept it as a steo towards
tho inauguration of the co-operative commonwodlth. But wo oppose state control, and municipal-
iration of public utilities for the
reason that the proletariat is the
Bamo poddlpr of labor, power that
he was before. His position Is
more insecure, for, as part of capitalism, he oxists by competition;
under private enterprise ho haB
many masters, under the state
ftut'onb.''" '" ' ",y   ',";„"_,.
, Socialism has nothing in common with government ownership,
which in another form of monopolistic capitalism operated in the
intcrcstfl   of --4 por cents.''     The
economics of';"sbcialism will totally abolish wage"'labor as productive of surplus value, 'and raise
mankind; from economic servitude
to something more; than mere,
"job hunters."
'     ■ . ■       *  . J  V     ■
To the taunt of .^dreamers" "that
is    usually thrown   at socialists.
Let me say here and now. that instead    of being' ''dreamers"    they
are students of the evolution    of
society, .and can see that capitalism will .give birth ^ to socialism.'
The   human    family * has   passed
through .^many  phases ^of , social
life, from savagery and barbarism
into, civilization,  and the; latter
can be   summed up as successive
stages;- in.', the.' following-7'order:^
chattel   slavery,     fuedalism   aiid
capitalism,   . each epoch" being s a
distinct^ mode of production... We'.,
are living in a period of economic-
history,; .when sign's are- not >want-1'
ing     T'tp foretell      its^ collapse.
.. anics. point out   the defects    of;
capitalism,' showing how   . incapable'it is'of providing'the human
family :with necessities of life.    T'"
' These panics are periodical,- and.'
with ■ the increase and improve-'
ment of machine production ..will
be more marked ,arid frequent'' in-
the_ 'near future. This ° is not".
prophesy, ' - but .. simple' deduction
"from* the ^capitalistic. ' mode" of
production.'   '"     "_    —-"--"--;,• "-,-•-
■■ As .yiaX' various.- ccohbmici'epochs
Rave passed into oblivion, so in-
the fullness of^time will" capitalism disappear. Tho next s-tep^
