■TWO   DOLLARS   A   YEAR     IX , AD-
Issued every M'ednesday from the office of publication, Todd Block,
.Victoria Ave., Fernie, British Columbia.     ' ' „
D.  V.   MOTT  ,
The Ledger from time to time during <".h_ last year has commented upon what il has termed the one great
evil of the new century, carried over
from the Inst, and which seems to lie
uearing. that stagn.. in its course which
indicates the beginning of its end-
corporation  greed.
'Ihis is the disease which is- gnawing at the vitals of corporate wealth,
and unless the gluttonous greed* of
ollicers, directors and managers can
in some way be clwckcd, the disease
will destroy the whole  system.
Every week new instances of directors diverting the. moneys belonging lo
companies, or which they* have control, inlo their own pockets, or into
the treasury of other companies, of
which they are also directors and
holders of much larger interests,,
thereby increasing their propoiticii-
iite profits by robbing 1'cter to pay
Paul, being sure, tliat both 1'eter and
'Paul do the suffering to the-personal
profit of lhe dishonest director.
One ofthe. latest   of      these exposures i.s that .brought to light through
the probing of the afiairs of the I. 0.
■ Y.  insurance,   the" Union  Trust   Company,  and  the  Great West  L-aiul   Co,
An ex-cabinet minister aud some
numbers of parliament ate the ones
this' time .ly get caught.
While "Mr. Lindsey is keeping a circular factory running extra time
printing startling, stunning, questions
as to lhe value of a contract with
lhe United Mine Workers of America,
these organized roklicr.s are keeping
steadily at it, until common people
are' beginning to wonder vlul Iter
there is ' such a thing as an
hr.n.-fttly conducted corporation of
any kind with which John Mitchell
or anybody' else could make a contract with any degree of certainty
that i%i would be adhered to in spirit
as well  as in  letter.
As the Ledger has slated before, il
believes there is only one remedy for
this evil—lhc removing of lhe cause.
'. Tlu cause i.s so apparent from the
all too frequent examples brought lo
liJ*hi._lrom    time, to  lime,  and    from
which it is fully and clearly dem-
, i/iist rated that .multiplicity of
directorship is iit the bottom of all
the evil, that time is wasted in its
, discussion..- Experience and ,. investigation has proven that irom this same
cause nearly all the commercial coemption of llie age has sprung.
The vast sums of money stolen
from rightful .owners and translerred
to the pockets of corporation robbers would, if it were^iossible tn arrive at an accurate estimate, make a
total that would stagger the human
mi ml lo conteiuplnle. All the petty
little train robberies and hold-ups at
the points of pistols from Jack
Cade's time to tlu present, would
sink inlo insignificance when coin-
pared lo the fruits of the corporation
directorate way oi1 doing the job.
Tlu si/e of the stealing's would put
llie Jack Cades to -.Iiiiihu, but .lack
has me redeeming thing id his '.ud-
it—he den'i protend to you that he is
u parugon of honesty io whom y'iiu
uie asked io entrust your cash for
safe keeping, lie has the courngt: l.o
take il by lonv instead of  by lying.
Tlu only real remedy Ior this doubling up of directors is to limit n mnn
to oiie direct orate, or one ollice, II
n mnn could not In* n director in
more ih.111 oni' company, then he.
could not cheat himself iu one com*
pntiy for the beiiclit of himself in an*
other company,
That looks .simple, and i'm us simple
ns it looks. Xo compnny ol any
iiiugiiitudo but whnt has more slock-
holders Ihiiti directors nivd ollicers
and a l.d.ii(1 of dim.11ns who uu-not
diicetois iu ally other company could
be  found,
ll not, tlu n the company should not
exist. Xo ollur remedy will ever
into  llio. discnsi!,
The,opportunity to rob is so great

wonder is that nioic ol it has not.

to his three-man company,* on the
other side. Of -"course, he naturally
felt.like helping himself• on th; other
side as much as possible, and so sold,
himself goods at a. very low price, so
that the. duty would be very light.
It is not known whether he intended
to, or did, cheat his stockholders on
ihis side, or whether he whacked up
the profits, but sonielio-.*,* or other
.Uncle Sam's servants got onto . the
job  and  spoiled   tlie  game.
Th's* is onlv an extension of. the
double director, double manager business to both sides of tlu line in order to make smuggling easy, but straddling the International Boundary
line made a • little too much of a
spread, and matters had to be fixed
up.    '     ,
Xow, it is likely that if one was to
run across that-, fellow he would find
a great defender of organized capital
,nd  a  hater of organized , lalior.
He would likely be found preaching
about Uic unieliability of such fellows as have lo work for a living. .
Ile would defend thc double director business, and prate about the im-
practability  ot  labor  unions."
He would even talk about honesty
as exemplified bv himself and his associates, and of the dishonesty of,
other people.
It i.s such people as this mat are
bringing socialists and anarchists into the  world .every  day.
Labor unions are the product of the
linsenipuloiisiiess of such fellows,
brought into existence by selfish, .dishonest, methods reduced to a science
by  long  practice  and  training.
Legally trained minds are pitied
against plain, ordinary people for the
purpose of robbing them according lo
law, as dishonest directors rob their
stockholders and others by machinery
set up and put in motion by the law.
If there .was no law allowing cue
man to he a director or manager of
more than one company, there would
have been no life insurance swindling*;
no Kamloops lumber dealing, by which
I. 0. l'\ and "Union Trust companies
have  been  robbed.
A great bank could uol secure control o-. thc funds of trust companies,
or vice-versa.. Beef trusts, railroad
combinations to control rates, and
ill the thousand and one ways of
robbing by tha director method would
be .shut off.
How many" of these directors do
any directing aside from the direcl:ng
of.the funds of one company into the
hands ot another?
In almost every investigation that
has taken place since this inconvenient and impertinent habit, as ,Mr.
Koster might term it, has manifested
honesty crops' up, is generally in
boards of directors or their agents,
and ' in dishonest ollicers ol the
unions, but tci say that all tlu members' of a union or the stockholders
ot a company, are dishonest and unreliable- because directors or ollicers
may. in some cases be seH-seeking and
double dealing, .is far from the. truth.
Public sentiment is being rapidly
aroused to the danger that lies lurking in 'he double director devilish-
ness, and tlu remedy will some day"
be applied.

And now comes the'statement, that
there will be uo election before another session of the. Provincial House.
Of course not; thai would be sure to
cut off a few more mouth's salary
than waiting lo take chances in the
house, with due 'chance in a thousand, lhat ihe government may sl.lv
through once move without being
caught. The Ledger will lyelieve in an
election when it sees the writs.

in the case ol Mr. 1'ostcr, there were
only himself and two others looking
after the bdsincss of the Great West

Now, if Mr. Foster and those, other
M. l'.'s could be directors in only one
companv, tluy would not be in the
very unenviable pos-itian in which
they now find themselves.

managers Tor tlie Crow's Xest Bass

Supplement to the Fernie Ledger
By The Ledger B<_d
Some days ago the Spokane papers

placed'in,   'ih. pri.Mjiv.T's   dock.
I.I-.-.1 witness,  ilu  oldest of  tlu
were lull of.tlu sickeningdetails ,of a
. filthy-case of wrong doingi by    some
devlish   null'ami nikliili.nl  daughters i girls, who:«r a^"was "al „,,i.  ifi vears

Last week the two girls in .the.case
arrived in I'L-inlc in company wilh
W'.iHiie Sinip:i[.n, who, it a'pears, paid*
these girls* lures from Spokaiu to
this city, 'end came nlcii'j with them.
Whatever mny h.ive lieen ilu ih.unel-

that tluy are young, au.l that wh-.n
they found themselves in the house
presid.d over by Winnie Simpson,
tiny repuilcd of Ui.-ir rash action,
and coming up town sought lhe police station and asked that a telegram l.o .suit to a friaii-.l in Spokaiu
asking him to send tluni money ' to
pay th.ii- expenses back to their
■As explained by one of tlu girls in
giving lur evidence, Jjiey d.d this iu

knowledge ^of wh.it h.ul happened to
Ii'AStcod of wiring for the money lo
send them home as tliey- had been requested '' tlu police reported tlu stale
of affairs to higher anthorilv and an
in'o. million was laid again it Winnio
Simpson;* charging her with tho of-
.crice-of'-procuring, anil slu was -arrested and placed'in. durance vile.
-Winnie 'winked and" . blinded, niyl
finally awoke to tlie fact that slu
needed bailing out and ,'ifter begging
around town awhile, she found some.;-*
lody willing, to do tlu bailing out on
condition ih.it she depasit with him
for safe keeping a smail l.iila of diamonds, etc., f.n.l she .got licrselj-Mailwl.
Meantime the girls, who were being
detain.*!    as  witnesses,    were   restive
awl pined for the Spokane atmosphere
1 with'a pinng.'lliat grew and grew until it'became overpowering, and'while
th: police were vigilantly guarding
the G. X. station lest' it pick ■ itself
np and (lit over the border with the
two girls inside, the.girls took a walk
rnd forgot -to come back. The. next
hard of them thoy. were clean oul-
sule of the Daniinion and in tlu bosoms of their fnmilies, where, the Lodger Kid with his Night Cap on can't
see for the lifo of him why they were
not permitted to remain, lint kids
with Night Caps on can't see much

the Nelson News.
Iv. P. Eckstein, of Fernie, general
counsel for'"5 tlu- .United -IHiiia Workers
of America, is iii, the citv lo attend
the assizes. ° Discussing the strike-situation at Fernie, he yesterday gave
tha following statement of Uie •. iiio..-.s
siidj of tlu case:,
"The strike i.s a culmination of
ni.a.iy grievances which ,the n miners
claim to have, hut more particularly
and. directly responsible for the- situation is tlu employment of nou-unicii
men. The munlier of non-union miners and miiu lalxirers lias been steadily increasing, while secessions Irom
-.- llu ranks of tlu union had liCa-.-iiiu
somewhat numerous,. It •'.•; iUii:i*.-.l
by- the miiur.s that the %omn:uiy is
largely responsible for this situ il'v-ii.
In order to appreciate the laets, il. ;,i
necessary to i-.nilerstiiii'.l lhe i:;o'iimi;_;*
of what is locallv known as the
check-oh* system. ' Under the agrce-
niint of May *-.*<, 190."", it is -.ro.'.i\..d
l-.y Article 5 as follows:
'- "Tlu company will give to the
United Mine Workers of America full
recognition nn.l concede the check-oil'
system; lhat is to say, upon tlu individual request in writing of any of
■ tliu company's employees, tlu com-,
puny .shall djduet such monies from
iheir wages each month as" is designated, for dues, assessments', fines
and.initiation fees. In other words,'
the company will"' retain from, tlu
wages due employees, any sum they
may-have given "orders upon 'tlfe'eom-
paiiy for,, in "writing, payable lo sucli:
ollicers of the United Mine' Workers oE
America as may l.e designated in such
ii *
ord.-rs." A
"For ih* purpose of effectuating the
intent of this article, the whole agreement was annexed to a blank or minute Look, in whicli was written a
memorandum in the-following words:
■ " 'Wc, the liiidersijiiud employees of
your company, heiv.bv each for Miim-
.'e!f executes tlu foregoing annexed
contract and authorizes the Crow's
NTe,sl Pass Coal Company, Limited,
to deduct from his wagos each month
such sum or sums for dues, assessments, finos and initiation fees' as
may l:c..designated to the company
in writing from tinu'to-tiiiie by 'llu
lawfully ' authorised oiliccrs of ,thc
Unitul Mill.* Workers of .America, and
"On.tlu 5H1 pf ilu present month,
international hoard member Joseph
Sharp, and President" Sherman, of District Xo. rS, met Mr. Lindsey and
warned him that trouble would result if, he sanctioned the course that-
was seemingly being upheld by his
company in allowing men to with-'
draw from the understood obligation
which they were under hv having
signed the memorandum above quot-
■'    Mr. Lindsey,.so it is said by ths
■T"t'n-p"ny7o^f-siiitlPsuIii or sums-to Uie
secretary of tlu local union of the
United Mine Workers of America for
K«d on behalf of tlu United .Mine'
Workers of America, in accordance
with a certain agreement entered into on the 23rd day of May, 1905, between the company and the liicnA „
"Almost ' every man employed in
and about the mines signed the book
referred to, and up to a recent period
th.- company, made the deductions
authorized to be done iu that way,
It seems that word was passed among
the nan" who had thus signed llu
' Look lliutnucli of llum as wished to
do so, might revoke the authority
thereby given-by him, and it is charg-,
t-d that tlu company, to enable the
nu-n thus to cancel what tluy* had
iii.-ne, "provided • another hook or document, for-,, that purpose. Quite a
number of men, l-donging to the union
availed themselves of what, it is
said, they were, advised by tlu company tluy might do, to cnncel the
right of the union to collect the,
inonlhly dues', ■ In this way * union
men practically censed to he such,
Mid, of course, .became non-union employees, The. free employment of

Juld, out to 1u1ic-.11 men in leuye tlu
union, made it possible that nonunion men would outnumber ihe m--
gniilwd force, or, .in other words, ,thu
union would luivu to go out of ex-'
"Il is fair to the cnnipany to say
tliut.lt denies very emphatically that
it Itnd ' anything to dn with men
withdrawing from the union, hut still
it is .hurd to make uuiou nun Jdievo.
flint it in entirely innocent in tlu
minors' representatives,i said that lu
would appeal \*ito President Mitchell.
The delegates .agreed that lu might
do this. Failing a settlement of thi.s
trouble, and after giving one week's
notice that they would not work
wilh non-union men, llu union
walked out.
"Besides this grievance, tlu miners
claim that they have several others.
They charge ilu company wilh acting
mala fide "in respect to the agreement
which' was entered into on the 23rd
of .May, 1905. Article 2 of that ii-gree-
nrciil provides the procedure whereby in any case whore it may appear
that, a member of the United Mino
Workers of America has not been
fairly treated, his grievabee .may be
"There has been, so it is claimed by
the miners, no chance given to a man
claiming to lx* aggrieved to have his
casa hoard under ilu terms of this
article, but he Jias been {.rail without
any compunction ou the part of tlu
company. It is claimed by llu company, that this article is as well applicable to the guural body . of ' men
or to an individual, and that any
grievance arising on their part as an
«g>grig*ation., should not come under
such article, but tlu language seems
clear that it has no application to a
general grievance, but is coiifiiiod to
isolated and individual cases; e.g.,
that where the company "pays men off
as it did some, time -ago at less than
scludule wages, it could invoke *=tlu
procedure of Article  2. °
Another grievance which ilu'miners have is the. attempted circumvention by the company of ii judicial decision in favor of the working men.
Wh.re. .1.-111111*. working by the day was
■disehargfd—or-quit— ilu-c7i"ni"p"atTy rW
fused to pay him his regular wages
until the regular pay day of tho company. In this way a man might have
to loaf around for a month or more
for his wages. Tho miners took ono
of those cases' into court and won.
Tlu company then had printed forms
of agreement which it required all
men* iiileriug its employ to si}>,n,
binding, llum hy individual contract
lo abi'de tlu arbitrary rule of the
company not to pay before its pay
day. This agreement, was drawn up
and enforced without any .reference to
representative Ial or. It was because
of tlu troubli*- whicli 111.11 had in collecting their wages wh.11 tluy' quit
or were discharged that tho agitation
iu'Hritish Columbia-for a fortnightly
pay day arose, tlu miners ot Fernie
initiating what was done in that respect.
Tho minors also object lo lii;' innovation r.f paying them hy • heque
inst'iid ol coin, Home protest vas
mnde. against this innovaliin, which
took place about ..three 1i1c.1r.hs aj'o,
bui,it was not siiflicieiilly i'lipo-tant
a matter to raise any substantial
trouble about.
"At the present tinu, iustend oi
paying tlu men iu coin, ilu proi-fil-
iir. adopted is to have tlu iv-H'-al
force of Uu Cunadiuu Hank of Commerce go to tha mines nt Miclul and
Coal Creek, respectively, nnd ca>sh tlu
ch-qius, Al'.-iu wicket tho paymaster of the company distributes the
iliei/iu.s, At .niioilur wicket tho pining teller of the hank puyii llicm,
This innovation le.pilies a draft to
be made every inoii'.h upon thu clerical force at Cninbrook, It is also
claimed liy the nu-u that the wage
schedule lias not been ndlui'ed lo."
But the Great Consumptive Preventative brought Health and Happiness to his Home :
« Our doctor said there was no cure for
tny wife as both her lungs were affected,"
»ays Mr. L. H. Walter, of Pearl Street,
Brockville, Ont. "It was a sad disappointment to us both, just starting out in-
life, only married a short time. But before
she had finished the first bottle of Psychine
the pain in her lungs quickly went' away,
and after taking six bottles Mrs. Walter
was a new creature and perfectly well
That is just one of the many families
inlo which Psychine has brought hops,
health and happiness. It is a living prool
that Psychine cures Consumption. But
don't wait for Consumption., Cure your
LaGrippc, your Cough, your Bronchitis,
pour Catarrh, or your Pneumonia with tbe
remedy that never fails—

Serious  Situation   Facing   ill.   People
ct   Calgary   this   Winter.
Calgary All.ertan. '   A -
What promises to become a very
serious situation in the City of Calgary lias jusl Legi'ii to make itself
evident here, and that is the scarcity
of coal. In brief, there is every reason 10 believe that before many days
elap.« the city will Ik in tin* llinws
of a coal famine. At lhe present
time 'it is impossible to walk into
nn oilice wh.ro soft coal is sold and   vlKQ^ ROOSVHJ.IJ AND TOBACCO

outer any quantity of the fuel and
get the assurance from lhc seller .as
to exactly when he will -l;c alio to
deliver it.    ,>-
Knowing this to be the condition
at iho present time, what then will
"he the situation of affairs when the
first cold wave strikes here. Gait
coal has predominated in this city
so far as tho amount used is con-
.ix;rii*:d, Imt those miius, owing to a
strike lhat has l:ec-u in progress for
.'.oinc mouths past, aro unable to
turn out anything near equal tlu demand made on thoin at present.
Ycsioi-day afternoon a reporter
railed on Mr. Peel, agent for llw
Gait coal.
Mr. Peel said- "Well, it is just
this way. Our compnny has told us
to go ahead and lake all tlit orders
wc could get lor winter coal, and
lliey woiild see that we got  ills coal
10 fill them with. At the present
time coal, i.s very scarce with us, as
we could easily   use about three cars
11 day, while we are only able to get
uboul one car in three days. Orders
nre stacking up in our book's at a
lapid rate, but we aie making no
u.s.siiniuces when wc will iill" Ilium.
That is the condition of afiairs wilh
us. Our (inn tell us thai we will
get- tlu coal, but we ourselves arc
making no assurances when that time
will be."
Krom this interview then Uic *, nh-
lic can form its own opinion *.'s to
what the supply of -Gall coal liert
will lie for the winter. When their
niiius are running   in full    ihoy   un-
„ ploy about 5110 men, lml owing to
the strike trial is i;n tlieru U *-'•-*-
ent,  and  which has been  miming for
• some time past, there are not now
more than 100 working, and those
non-union, a class that can seldom
■be depended' upon.
Tlu. other mining company that lias
helped to supply this cily with soit
coal is tli*. Canada West Coal and
Coke Co., the successors   to ilia Tab-
or Coal Co. R. C. Thomas, the 'jo
cal agent for the company, war. iu
u-rviewed, and his observation of
th.' situation-is a very gloomy on... lie
said in part: .
"I made .a visit several days ago
to the mines which I represent in an
iiulaUvce lo discover why I could
not gel the coal that I needed for
my trade, and discovered several
reasons for it, One of ilieni is lhat
our mini's are located a short distance below the (.alt mines und iheir
output su the present time is ;.o
small that tlu vicinity iu which tliey
are located is drawing on our output lo such au extent that it is taking, a large proportion oi our product
lo supply llie immediate: vicinity in
which tliu mines are loeateil,
■■Another reason is that while the
freight rates are somewhat iluaper
for our company lo send their coal
westward, still *Jiy doing so lliey
have inn into opposition from , western mines, and by shipping what ex-
ions mill tluy have to Moo.-ej.iw,
R.'g.iti'i nnd other points east, they
'do nol run into opposition, and ie-
relvii do cents a ton mori* for Jt at
the iin'iie', than they do by .duppiug
lure. This renson, then, lo n l.irgu
extent offsets ill.- cheaper freight rati:
I'or western shipments, and makes llu:
eiistcrn market n more lavornble oiu:
for the shipper.
"Iii conclusion, I will say that. I
li.ivc 11 slunliiigi order for live cars
of ronl n week, iuul I lie very lest
lhat I nm possibly get is one. As
fur us I myself um coiiceiiud, I saw
this condition of a If 11 ini coming snmi*
linn* back, uml luid in lor my own
um' a |.,oijil!y supply of  wood."
