Last January the Ledger published
ligures ,which proved that at thai
time a quaiter of, a-million of dollars was paid ,.out, each mouih in ihe
the line -between
Krank and Morrissey. Now the ter-
lilory in which that amount is   paid
out*   i.s   restricted      lo  lhc   territory
west  from Michel to  Morrissey.
It is witliiu thc possibilities that
the- noarler million mark will bit

Don't let us run away with tlie
idea that the men who earn tbesu
vast sums of money have nothing to
do with lhe spending of it, aiul lhat
this Talley owes its prosperity to tha
people who have had value received
for what  they pay out.
Capital is necessary to develop the
great resoiuccs oi ihis country; but
capital generally sees 10 it that',, it
gels value .for every dollar paid out,,
and wlun the dollars have passed
over '.he counter they cease lo lie the
properly in any way ol the payor,
and b..coiiie the property of ihu
The evil which comes t o this and
all other camps of industry whert
large capital is • cmployiid, arises
from the ellorts of tlio companies. to
t-Catilrol th.-se dollars after they have
parted with them, and who resort to
unfair methods  to do so.

The repott of lhe first meeting of
the ministers of thc various churches
ol -the city and neigililljorhood, which
met several days ago, was iiiiavoid-
uhly crowded out o! last week's issue
of the Ledger, and as the meeting
took into consideration the coming
of Mr. Rochester, of Winnipeg., who
represents the Lord's Day Alliance,
and who will address a mass meeting,
to l.e held in* the Oddfellow's Hall
Sunday at four p. in., a few remarks
relating to the work of the new ministerial association may not lie out
of  place.
Such'associations exist in all large
cities, and in many of the larger
towns, and are of- great value lo the
church organization.
• They bring together the different
churches-' through their ministers, and
und to unify 'effort and harmonize
elements that otherwise might neutralize  each  other.
Thc first meeting of the niinisters
cl the Fernie churches was well attended, all ministers being, present
except Father Mtissner, who was un-
' avoidably detained at CraiVbrook, "but
who sent a letter to be read al the
■meeting expiessing his regret at not
being able   to  attend.
All the churches will-co-operate in
so far as possible in this movement,
niul the association will become a
permanent   body.
There ' were   present    at  this   first
meeting, which was held in the study
0 room   of      the   Methodist   parsonage,
Rev.  Wilkinson,      Rev.   Grant,    Rev.
Kelnplon  anil  Rev.  Mr.   Hall.
Mr. Hall was made president and
Mr. Kemp ton secretary, and' it' was
arraiini.il to hold regular meetiifg.'vl
In addition to organizing the association, thc matter of Mr. Rochester's visit in ihe interest of the
Lord's Day Alliance, was taken up
and n committee appointed to make
lhe necessary urrangements for a
mass meeting next Sunday, at which
Mr. Rochester will undertake to ex-'
■plain thc provisions of tht new Stin-
'.luy  law  enacted  thiought   the efforts
The meeting will be held in the
■ Odd' Fellow's Hall, and should lx;
well attended, not only by thc friends
.ol the hili, but by those wlio arc opposed to such legislation, in order
thai a better understanding of thc
bill as passed may be had. -
Aside Irom the work taken up by
the local minister., in support of Mr.
Rochester's meeting, lhe objects aimed at by a ministerial association
nre such as to commend i'i to al\peo-i
pic who have the interest of church
work ui heai I, As in all-the callinjg!(
of life, the niinisters, by keeping in
touch wifii eiich other and unifying,
n.s far ns possible, their efforts to
better the conditions of life, enn accomplish much more good than hy
holding aloof from each other and
working, along separate lilies which
may diverge instead of converge to a
common center, the liest for nil.
The churches arc keeping abreast of
the times iu their methods of working., nnd iiiu as piogressive as other
It hum who ■ have not nlleiided
"church lor years, nnd who reiucinlter
the trend of preaihing as heard forty
•tears ago, were lo occupy the pews
uf the chinches now, they would l*u

into ih
expense of education, or . their children' should be made lo pay a per
capita, as is don,: in Nelson and oilier cities where such conditions exist.
lhe Ledger believes the best method is th., enlaiging of the district,
so as to take in all property from
whence comes pupil? to the schools,
'lhe people of West Fernie can in no
other way secure, at tlte same cost,
the education of their ihildren, and the
same is true of those children living
in  other  outlying  territory.
Thi people (>r Fernie are also spending thousands oi dollars each year
■-ending children away to he educated
in high schools t.-i other cities. Fernie- needs a high school of its own,
so that this 1 drainage of cash to
other towns would l>c chawgxed to a
source of income from children from
outside, schools b?ing sent here lo receive   high   school   training.
--V high school here means the difference between paying, out and taking in cash lor educational purposes.
With the boundaries of ths Fernie
school district enlarged 'to take in all
territory irom which children are now
nttending thc public schools, iui.ru
high school lo accommodate our own
and other children established, the
proportional expense of education
would lie greatly reduced,
Our school hoard, we believe, arc
taking, the matter up wilh the provincial authorities, and will do all
in their power lo have a readjustment of.the boundary lines, so that
nil the chi I hi en in the locality will
have the best possible school advantages at the least general cost.

A comicmpory stated, in a lengthy
editorial a few days ago, that W. .T.
Bryan's idea of public owner«h*;p of
railroads in the United States was
impracticable, because it could not
be financed, owing to the vast sums
necessary to accomplish such a.
change. It i.s stated that it would
rel.Miire fourteen billions of dollars
to do this. It is also stated that
ol this vast siim at least half represents no real value, but which ever
way it is looked at, we'arc'of opinion that "the United Slates could
finance that little scheme with much
greater ease than could ths editor
of our contemporary finance his little
ue-wspaper properly and keep- it afloat
mid clear of the contaminating, ib'Jast-
ing, humiliating, damning, influence
of corporations, which are run al
tlte- expense ot the public and for the

The election, in the State of Maine
the other day is a confirmation of
he belief that, a great change is
going on in lhc minds of the people
which can not, as the result in that
State shows, be accurately measured
as to the causes which nre at work
lo produce it.i
The vote was larger thnnc'in other
years, and the great reduction in the
Republican majorities of other years
is being explained variously by parties who look at the figures throu'gh
party colored gla.sr.es, but there i.s
no doubt about there lieing. a change,
I'eihaps nil causes mentioned by
lhe reviewers of the result had some*

Various estimate; have  been  given
of this year's wheat output,  ranging*
from 75,000,1x10 to 100,000,006   bushels.   The most recent one is that   of | Tlu
Mr. John Airci, Winnipeg manager of
,_ the Canadian Baiil-' of Commerce. Ile
figures that the three provinces   will
•produce :t*i-,8i3,9oo  bushels  this    sea-
, sen. Mr. Aird's estimate is particularly worthy of note, as coming from
a man who has alwsys lieen very
close -to the mark. Last yoar he was
only 1,000,000 bushels lielow the output.  :Mr.   Aird   buses*.his   calcuftuion
..upon.Reports of tlu bank's agents in,
the various localities, using lhe acre,
age figures given in the Government
bulletins. He also estimates that the
out - crop will be 80.854.6vS0 bushels,
nml the barky yield i~,73aS,79o laish-
From theio estimates wc can figure
-.that the probable value of tlu grain
will le 10 the farmers, One good authority in the grain trade told our
i-cprcK-ntalivu this week that last
year ihe average price of wheat to
the lanueis wus al:out 6Sc, of oats

When we add to this amount the
return to the western consumer from

will-pass $100,000,000. This i.s an eiiur-

There is something do.ng in ,'ihe
Sullivan mining company.* Last, week
William Evans, an experienced mining man, and of late a heavy buyer
of Sullivan stock-and securities, ramc
to Cranbrook and went at.once to
the Sullivan and made a thorough
examination of the mine. .\ few d-iv.s
later 13. Glendiniiiug, the manager of
the company, arrived from Spokan;
and went al onie to tha mine, where
he spent a few days. On "Monday
both bf the gentlt-men went to Spo-
kt-it., and the next day .U. S. Senior Tinner and G. W. Shields arrived
liom Spokane. Tliey were met by
Robert' Anderson, llu superintendent
of the mine,- and this morning they
went lo the mine. It is said that G.
W. Hull, formerly local manager of
the smilter when il was first started, will arrive on Saturday. It is
known lhat there is a fight on for
crntrol Ixilweeii the .Sweeney interests and those controlled by Mr.
Hull, and lhat the contest will come
to a focus within a few days. Cranbrook i.s interested so far as* it effects the continued working of the
mine, and the operation of jthe smelter.

short time ago, taking with thnn an
Indian guide, and the party will
blaze a trail from Atlin to a point
on Dame Creek, wh^-re they espect to
meet, a const ruction party from ihe
east, who are establishing the ti ail
from the east.
This trail i.s very much needed, and
wh.n put in such .shape as to ' permit of pack horses travelling, will
ojK-ii to the prospector a large area*
of country heretofore almost inaccessible to 'anyone..
It is" hardly probable tliat the
trail will, prove of much liciie.it to
travellers desiring to reach the Yukon, as travel by such a route would
be too slow.and expensive to be of
use when lh.it country can be reached so much quicker and with so
much less discomfort than travelling
over a rough country by foot or ln-
pack  train. ' • •   .
