■•X'niU'-l Mine Workers of America, l"er

DEAR  SIR,- *   .
I hasvc t« ackiiowhdjjc the receipt
of your letter of Sept. (.th, which
reached ine through the post about 7
o'clock on' tha! uveniiijr of yesterday,
the 7H1 insi., and which reads as fol-
ows:
;, "I am instructed to notily your
company . that we intend to cense
■ workioir wilh non-union mul ,at your
Crxil Creek' Mines and Kernie coke
ovi**-*., and- stand ready to suspend
operations wh.'ii called upon. 1 am,
•11 behalf of  the 'above Local,
Yours Truly,
_»i\t rnc ii 1 r-ir- c>_lc«	
ainl** llierfctc.ro . must he well aware
thai lhe question of discriir.inalliiji
against non-union uu*n was thoroughly discussed more thnn once, and
a very definite cciiclusioii arrivi-d at
with levari! to it.
I should I.,, atna ied if tlu conclusion <■[ Glndston-j l/ocal Union, referred to iu your letter, has come lo
afler a fair -.statement has H*eii made
to llum of what look place at the
various eoiift-ri lice's. In case such a
ilnlcui-ni has "not been made to
ilr.'in, I will, (--note extracts from the
written record of conferences, showing the altitude assumed by th,: National Hoard representative, Mr.
Jonas, and bv Mr. Sherman, upon
thai 'question, in your presence and
ac/;;iiics-;d  in  hy yourself.
Wlun tlie question of inssrliu-> '•■ in
the agreement a clause wh'eh' had
been iu tlu previous agreement', and
was in the Coleman agreciniiit, providing that licit lur party should disci iininale aga-'iist n either union or
urn-union iuin, I was-urged by Mr.
Jones not to insist upon lhat clause
going inlo tlu juw agreeinelit, because its absence' would help the officers of the Union to induce men lo
join  tlu  1'nion. -   '
I now. j-ptole what was'said,'as taken from llu written record, a copy
of which was handed ■■ Mr. Sherman
each duy of the conference, at his and
your  request:,
'Mr. Sherman; "With reference to
lhat clause, lUr. I.indsey, just- -what
do you interpret as discrimination?"
Air. I.in.lsey: "I would interpret
this as (liscrimiiMiion. Mr/Sh.-rmaii,
just'what-you said ihr. olh.-r day
yomself, that if 'a man declined ' to
join     your   t'nion,     you  would  sav.
CANNOT TAKE SUCH : A STEP
WITHOUT THE CONSENT, OK TUP,
NATlONAr. PRESIDENT OK THE*
MINE W0RK1CRS, UNDER ANY
CIRCUMSTANCES, AND IK THEV
DID SO, tiieV WOUI.D HAVE TO
CONDUCT SUCH A STRIKE ON
THEIR   OWN   RESOURCES."
.Mr. Slicnnan: "THAT IS SO.
WE C'OVI.J) NOT UNDERTAKE
SUCH ACTION AS WOUI.D RESUI/l*
IN CLOSING VOUR MINES DOWN
WITHOUT INSTRUCTIO'NS KROM,
AND THE CONSENT OK OUR NATIONAL PRESIDENT, - AND WE
WOUI.D NOT "GET HIS CONSENT.
So, as far as that is concerned, you
'are protected as you never were before in regard to a strike. It. is the
TI. "M. W. ol A. itself lfi-.il protects
you   I'h.re." '       '
Mr. .Toii.-s: "1 KNOW ONE THING
AND THAT IS THAT PRESIDENT
MITCIIEI.I. WOUIJ) NEVER AI.1.0W
A STinKE TO KORCE A YYW MEN'
INTO THE UNION. 'Of course, if we
were absolutely organized, " there
would be no use of the discrimination clause ciilur way. We are working for complete 'organization right
nlcng, and we do not like to make,
la-"- -*>i the meantime that will en-
coioage  fellows to stay outside."' ■
It.r. Lindsey: "Are there, in the
Americin airreeiiicnis , any clauses
wilh   regaid  to   discrimination?
Mr. Jon.'s: "Noiu that* I know
of. We haic had cnly ciu- side of it,
tlu Company oblibing themselves uol
lo discriminate against tlu nun.
THAT IS THE REASON'- I SEE
THE KORCE "OK TIIE POSITION I
NOW TAKE THAT , THERE
SHOULD HE NO DISCRIMINATION
EITHER WAV.   I tli'iix vou' will ilni
WHAT VOU I.IKE?,"
■   Mr.   Slicnnan:    "NO  WE  CANNOT.
WE CANNOT     DO ANVTI1ING    OK
THAT NATURE."
Mr. J ones: "Strikes have occurred
in the. South in violation of our
Constitution.."
Mr. I.indsey: "1 know you would
not get the sympathy of tlu public
in such a strike'. VOU WOULD NOT
HE .TU.ST1KIED IN GOING OUT ON
STRIKE UECAUSE SOME OK TIIE
MEN IN THE MINE DID NOT
JOIN  THE  UNION."
Mr. .Tones: "NO, PUBLIC SENTIMENT    HAS   NOT    COME  UP    TO
THAT POINT." '	
The a! ove i.s a distinel undertaking on l.dialf of . ihe United
Mine Workers of        America,
that Preseldeni Mitchell will
not allow a strike because tlure are
non-union nun in ih-.! nrlius; that tlu
local union cannot take, such a step
without tlu' coiit-.nl. of tlu Naticiuil
I'rcsidint of the Min: Workers, au-.l
thai they would have to conduct such,
a strike on--their own resources; that
they could not underlake a question
which would result. iu closing our
mines down, without * instructions
from an 1 tlu consent of your National President, and lhal you could not
get his consent. It is tlu direct,
stateiucnrt of Mr. Slurtnan that he
is free lo' cciifcss''that you are
bound to work, with non-union nun,
.md that you could not do anything!
in  th_- n.iti-r..  of  refusing  io do so.
Un receiving (hose solemn assurances, I agreed for th.; Company lo allow  the  discrimination dause    to    b*e'

to'llu recoidj at every one of the
nictillgs, nl which licjiolinlions look'

Mr.   Sherman:    "So  far     as  I  can
s:o, what  you "-*m- is that.we would
take-action lb such, an* extent   as to-
close  tlu miius     down;   Is not  thai
it?"
Mr, Liudsev: "I have no' th..

nilun."
Mr. .Toms': "MAV.T INTERPOSE
A  REMARK?   THIS  LOCAL  UNION

M:\ Lindsey: "Ves, *btit I have
Mr. Sheniia.i:.s stmlj.mint here ollicial-
ly -'n writing, THAT HE, WOUIJ)
NOT WO-UK WITH NON-UNION
MEN."
Mr.    Hi.-rmau:   "THAT    TS     OVR
K1CELING.     UUT  I  AM KKEE    TO
CONKESS  THAT WE   ARE  P.0UND

Mr.   Lindsey:   "VOU  CANNOT    DO

- so  in   th.-  following.  langluiigL*,   which

Mr. Lindsey: "Now, in defvnnee
to Mr Sherman, AND RELYING ON
HIS GOOD KAITII, mid as evidence
ol oiir wish to meet .You in every
wav wc coiisisluitly can, I AM PREPARED TO ADOPT MR. HONES'
SUGGESTION,TO HAVE IT TAKEN
"OUT."- '"   -
Vou now write me ih'.it, in vicla-
ti(ii of all iluse soU-ir.n undertakings,  you  propose    to cease   working
with non-union men al our'C.inl
Creek mines. Iu ihe face of this, will
yoii be kind iiioikIi to say to nie, of
what value is a contract with the
United Mine Workers of America, and
what respect are we lo pay lo lile
solemn assurances of its highest ollicials?
I would ask you lo iv-c<.!Kid.-r this
matter wilh your Local Union in llu
light of what has l.e-.n exiractul
from the record of tlu confennces, a
copy of which record was from dny
to day furnislud yon while (lie conference was going on, "which should
he 111 vour possession, aiul whiih I
lake it, you should have, brought, to
the atttnlion of, tlu min.-rs of- Coal
Creek, if you have not already done
.so.' If,you wili not let the members
of your union know these things,
will you let me meet llum and es-
explain llum?, I feel that the matter has (.n'y lo be explained fairly
to the nun to secure theii- apprecia-
lir.n of how much their honor and
that of llu Union i.s involved.
Under our contract, where a diller-
elici: arises between us, under Article
2 of our agreeliuii'., all cases where
llu United Mine Workers of Ameijiea
have not lieen fairly treated, are to
be referred to' a svries of tribunals,
ending with tlu President of our
Company and tlu President of llu
United Mine Workers of America, for
adjudication, and while such course
of negotiations is in progress and
until a llnul decision is reached, the
min.-rs, min.: laborers and all other
parties must c< niimu  to work.
This provision' of our agreement
was broken by the men on the oc-'
casion of ilu     coinideratioii of     the
-prices-ttrrlic-paftl-lor moving Alc~Ciii-
lies at Coal Creek, the ma iter being
sul sorbinUlly leferivd to myself and
your Mr. Sheiinaii for consideiation.
He m.-t me, with Mr. Peter Paterson,
your National lio.nd Member, and
■ijliiiitled that he knew he had been
wrong in allowing the strike to take
place 1.nlil'the matter' had been ccn-
si de red l.y, llie various tribunals nun-
liolled in Article *. of jthe agreement,
and I withhold for     th.* present    llie.
reason giveti by him for cotiseiilii.g
lo lhe course of coiiduci which he admit lid  wa-;  wioug.
I .-h.iil not pi.-rmii a repetition of
thut kind of conduct to go on llu:
same Icruis as I did last time. I
shall e.\pcc( our miiieis to live up to
their eontr.ict and the pledges giviii
for thcni, as religiously as we h;i\i:
lived up to those given on l.i half of
this Company.
I .should extremely regret to be obliged lo conclude, if,a dilh-riiit couise
of conduct results, thai il will.,h.: a
matter of serious consideration
whether' a contract made by the
United Mine Workers of America, and
whether the sacred - undertakings ol
its high ollicials are worth placing
ally  reliance  on. , *
1 enclose you a copy of a letter
sent by me on Seplcmbir '">th last, to
your Pre.sidinl, Mr. Sheiuu.n, in
answ'i- to a communication from him
which speaks for itself, and whicli, if
llu 111:11.rs of Coal Creek have not
had the opportunity of eon-ddci ing*, 1
Mlglg-est that V(>u would peih.ips think
it fair lint th.-y should hear it read
to   them.
Yours  Truly,
G. G. S. "LINDSAY,
General  Manager.
.Since   lI1.1t conimunicalicn  wns Saiu
to you, printed     notices    have    been
I os ted at     tlu mines,  of    which the-
following is a copy:
"Acting under insliuclioiis of Pics-,
idem.Mile-lull, we ' hereby give all
non-union miners notice* that sevi n
days after' this (bite, we will cease to
work with non-union miners.
Sept. Milt.' Mjofi. V. M, W. of A."'
If President Milc.hcll_i'aiffi—ihosu—JUj—
slriictioiis, and authorized tluir publication, th n the. contract wilh the
Unit id Mine Workers of America is
not worth llu paper ,it is written on,'
for he his violated every pledge giv-
ili for him by his repres-elital ive lit
oiu1* conference and by his disttict il-
ficcrs, and Iu. lias failed to bimsilf
discuss this .matter with" our Pn-si,
.-lent before acting, as jirovideh nii-
di'i- tlu . agreement, and until lliiit
is done  tlu nun     must  continue    in.
.To,  The    Workmen    nt   Coal    Creel:
Mm.'s:
Ciillwiun,—
I am of ill.1, opinion that there
ih.mid be au iiitiwer givm to the circular sent oni by onr niamigt'i', Mr.

lo disabuse the minds of any of ilu

be fair to his Company -nt'l ,*,lso
tluir iinploytrs, there is a wav where"
by this trouble could Iw avoided,
vi/.,, curry ing out lhe ngrn-iiitnt to

may gain', or think he can gain, for
llio compnny '.he least iiilvaiitu*'/. never
thinking of tlu pressure that is put
i,i;-oii   llie ] oor  workuii-.u,
I mny say, that had ii not been
the desire oT our null to live up to
lhe ngriviiii'iii in an honorable way,
there would be trouble every' month
since this ngreeiiuiit came into force,
You nmy., link tli.' reason why? 1 will
tell yon, This agrei'iucii'. is broken
almost moiilly in one. mine or 1111-
o'.lier, but the place that T want to
I ring l.i'jniv ymi is here, in referuu-c
to lhe signing of the clieck-o!T. Il
was a common understanding that
eiii-li person th mid si.^-ii the ngni-
niiiil, l.i-cniise it would make il uioiii
I iml'it_' for (.very person to sign.
WI1.11 I ref.r lo the check-olT, I mean
II pnrt, or uu article of the agree-

Now, we have 11 book' that eain innii

VRUIT GROWING.
-.pleiuliil new
lhe   Winter  Diili'ina,   is   a  most
Mr. Wm. Edmund," of Orondo,
.Washington, who passed iltrouj-fli
town last week, and lefl with tlie
licdger a line sample of that most
variety of winter apple,
successful grower,, of all kinds of fruit,
though. lie confines his ell'orts more
particularly to the growing and improving of the belter varieties of
winter apples.
Mr. Edmund considers the Winter
Banana to be the best apple of all
winter varieties now being produced
nnd placed on the market, He has a
lurjje number of these trees in bearing now on his Orondo fruit farm,
and is this year taking from 35 to .10
boxes of the finest, kind ot apples
from each tree, and has thsin contracted- for al §3.1x1 per box*.
Think ol Si20 Irom a single tree in
the shape ol revenue, besides the joy
* lliere must be in propagating, growing, training and watching, tliose big
flushing beautiei grow' and grow to
perfection.    kS „
Mr. Edmund says he will hereafter
(■online his efforts to the-., improvement nnd production of about four
varieties of winter apples, the Winter
•BMi.-.na, Wine Sap, Spit/cnlxjrg, and
one or two others whicli he finds to
),«: the most profitable for this western country.
He. captured the^ hron/£ medal for
his display of apples at the. Kt. Louis
Exposition, only two other displays
in that vast array of apples from all
over the continent surpassing- his in
llu opinion ol the awarding comniiilce.
Th; Ledger siiccccd&l in interesting
Mr. Edmund to such an extent in the
possibilities of lhe ' Kootenav Valley
to tha west of Kernie for the growing of fruit, that he promised, to
stop afi on his leturn trip from Alberta and speii.I a few days in looking into the subject personally. -He
saw at once the advantages of mar-J

nie have .found shelter from storms ot
winter    and  storms  of    vice  and  sin.
and Jane, aged 6, "came with her
doll, age a, and put up with us, bed
and board.
alane had the big room all to herself and thu doll, with the bloom of
youth tn her damnified cheek, slept 011
the window seat. Ilia gas was lefl
tuni-.il c.n a mere bead* of light in
order lo frightiu away th? b-oowig-
glers and the microetraileads - that
j-ometimes ifo'me and pull faces and
frighten little girls wli.n they are in
strange  housis.
In the night a stirring and an outcry  wa's-heaid  in  aluue's  room,    and
I went  in.   eVll
was  this  gentle  reipiesl-
"I ihink I would     like a glass    of
water." o  .
So   ''father"   sailed   gallantly   down
the cold, hard stairs' under bare poles
au-.l then, wuh-every wiil set,  ueally-
avoidad  the  reef of  tacks and rounded  rockingchair  point    safely.      alane
look    the  water     thankfully,   and  il
was  uliortly  in  ilia  po.-iitiou  the  canary  held  towards  the   kittle.       Their
.she said sleepily,  "I  ih'nk thai  will
le  'bout  all,"   aud  was asleep  be-fore
1  could get the glass on the table.  I
lucked  the,  white   clothes  about,,  the
little white lorm   and   retired.     Tire
ineid.ut   was    worth  about  a   thous-
und dollars.
Of ull you old scoundrels that have
little girls (jnartircd pcrtu.ini.nlly' at
your houses, half of you don't know
what you  have got.
in or near Fernie?
Do all the little boys and g.iils who
live—no, who ' exist—inv this busy
community, where enough money is
earn.d every mouth to keep everybody, boys, gills, old mt.ii and old
women in perfect comfort, get all
lhat is coming to them?
Ah, we fear not!'
It is lo be feared that, as J. A. R-
savs, God's will is not dene on earth
and that His Heavenly kingdom ..is
not quite as- near Kernie as it should
be. If it was *a little nearer our
city council might have been able to
have answered that call from the

The Ledger hasn't got such a treasure about its house; that i.s, not so
young and so h.-lpless, and consequently so imperious a treasure, but
it hasn't forgotten' the time when it

teinembers that it. too, did not appreciate the blessings of such possessions. It wondeis if it is possible
that anvoii:-, could.

THE   STRIKE
(Colli'lined   I'i frill   I'.lgi!   I.)
sum kept out of     his wages, to    pay
union  nieliibership .dues.
In "pursuance of this part of the
agreement the company at first supplied contracts for the men to sig»,
aiid instead of laying oil a day to
have this done, the union un.11 depended upon " the good faith of the
company to see to it that each man
s-ignwl. It*- appears thai.-- sonic men
refused to sign, and -the matter was
.not pressed lo a finality by, citker
side, 'the union min, as explain.d by
Secretary Higgs, not pusiiing the
matter,- prefering to trusting to the
worknu.11 doing so voluntarily. Why
lhe company did uot in-iist do:-s' not
appear,
Il also appears from the two cir-
ciilar'letters thai if, as the Miniuiger
states, tlu ollicers of the union have
iiol"ul*epi faith, lhe ollicials have also
failed lo insist upon tlu men signing
-ilii cha-ck-off, and haw* gone so far-as
to have nun sign cohlriKts not in
actordancc' with the spirit of the
agreement, and to' have continued
this practice after haviog promised
not to do so.
Tlie conclusion to K» arrived at
from-.a" comparison of these two letters,, is that lliere. was a tacit 1111-
(laTSland.'Uif not i-ncliuU-d in llu agree-
iir.iit arrived at that all ilu' men in
ih) min.s were lo sign, and that as
a consideration for the promise ol
tlu union men not to withdraw from
the mines, thus slopping work, 1I1.'
company were, to1 do what tluy could
lo induce llu non-union ni'-ii to sign
the cluck-off agreement, which practically made  union  nun  of llum.
Tluia! is no doubt at all llial if
lho company so desired all tlu men
working would have signed these
agricmuils - or quit work, and . that
such action would have resulted in
accomplishing what tha union desir-
ul (.lid openly slated was the object
aimed at.
Il is to be assimied-'that President
Will lull had all' these facts before
him before he advised the men of
Gladstone Union to quit work, and
lhe statement that a contract signed
by such .'a. man as Mr. "Mitch-jll has
proved himself to be, is. not worth
ih* paper it is written tipcu, can be^
li7!U-oreF~for. revision!     ""     ~     '•
N'ow, il will seem from a comparison of these two circular letters,
inch inkdi at its face value, that so
far as lhe understanding of certain
mailers arrived ,il imd nol included
iu the.'contract, both parlies have
either niisiiudjisioc-.d ilu application
rnd 'bearing upon Ih* contract of
those verjl.lil statements and promises,
or, understanding llum, deliberately refusal to stand by ..th'.mi. Tli.it
being llu ease, there is 110 verbal
(igivemeiit to deal with,' and the
wri Hi n contract sign.d, sealed and
delivered, is nil I lure is lo be guided
IO*.-        . "
Now   that  contract  does  not    pre-
vi 111 lhe ni'-ii Iro'" doing just what
Ihey have done, and il is dillicult to
iii(l.*rstaud why tluy .-liould n"t do
so under  the circumstances.
Divested of all verbal .garniture, the
whole mutter is summed up in the
1 a., fad that the union nun iu the
C01J Creel* mines are (leiiiaiidinlg that
'llu. iK-U-uiiicli men shall pay their
share of llu expenses ol keeping up
tlie union, because lhe noii-unioa uieii
receive llu same btiuiits (*•! union <>i"

pose the general application of tlu
uuiou system to labor i.s ihe alleged
fact that llu laboring classes are
ignorant, and ihut ignorance is taken advantage of by dislir.nest demur
gogues, etc., etc,', but that argument, if true, applies ,onlv 10 ci millions, and not to tlu* principle involved. - , ,
It has been true Ao a much greater
extent in the past than at present,
and the improvement has been
brought .thorn moie by ihe tducation
djrival from tin.. ex|x-ritn.-e of 'belonging 10 unions, and the looking
after llu interests of Uu members,
collectively, IhroUgh th.> iiiacliiii.-ry
of orgaiii/atioit-!, th,i.n it ,-oii!d have
l.cvn done  iu am- otJt.-r way.
cAs lo honesty '-lltl integrity, it
will be time for llu corporations to
begin looking for lltos-*. particular
ci.mmodiliis in', the labor orgaiii/a-
lions after ihey have thoroughly
ilenionsiraled to ilie world.that they
have a monopoly of tho.su things' as
well as of capital. Kecelii exposures
nnd investigation.-,- nrove beyond dispute that llu capital side ol these
controversies have :lU tluy can doves, more than the,*-' have been doing,
to keep their sibe of the camp clear
of di-hoiu.sl ollicers, directors and
iii;-.».igejs, and the public will not
take iiiuth slock ill charges coming
from either side.
. 'Uu great majority of the workmen arc hoiusl, i-,l»d only want a
.^iiare deal, i.lld to that they are entitled, and if they conduet their contest fairly and hi.iior.ihly,.> ihey will
win their battle [pr unionism.
To the ailookier, who is disinterested directly on either side, it looks
like an unfair discrimination ou the
part of a company to acceed to the.
wishes of one man as against the ex-
pressod wishes of nine men, especially as it appears thut it was that one
point 'or which the men had .contended, and tlu coU'l'niiy had, -by inserting that clause whereby l'u men

'.iddressi'S in the Methodist, ltaptist,
mid l'rtshyierian churches, as well as
at a mass meeting' called in the (hid
IVUow's   Hall   in   the  aftenioMi.
The (tddiess in lhe afternoon was
intended to cover .the ground of llu
recent act passed at Ottawa. It was
an inleleSt-ng and able deliverance,
■brighten.il up by occasional sullies of
liiimor. hi (act, " ib,- n-v. gentleman
put lhe audience in good htmim- "al
Uie beginning wilh a sptaim aiucdole
or two, and effectually dispfxed oi
Uie idea that auyihliig in the shape
of an exaggerated piililanilui was"
conleniplaileil. ' It was Said ih.-
Scotch keep ihe Sahln^h, and everv-
lliiiig else they can lav their hands
on Jlnt keeping the . Sabbalh was
not so conspicuous today. What
was wauled was a rational observance of the Lord's day.. Whatever
perversions then: may luive U-111,
thus-, did not abrogate" ihe day. The
SulJhalli was made for man—not for
lil.icl'in/.ic and Maun or any "one class
of in:*—as someone easl po-'nled out,
but for man. The- whole work of the
lord's Day Alliance was to si-cure to
each ma 11 his just rights to a day of
rest. A higher patriotism was needed to go along with the material re-
souiccs of a couatry. It is the men
uho have stood for right in the east
that- we lienor today. Ideas r.nd scli-
tiuictits are tremendous inlluciiecs in
shaping a nation. The whole ipies-
lion wasi a national one, affecting.,Uu-;
ciuiiinoii welfare'.
Another thing disposed of was lhe
idea that this act had be. 11 engineered ,by the .clergy. As a matter of
fact, the main clauses had 'lieen taken from regulations made.by lhe bus-
-iuess—manag-en..- nl—of—mil mail inter'-
ests rrli the oll'.cr side, for lhe better
working of tluir ronds without aciit.n
of th.: clergy at all.- It was ihis im-
1'oruiiit fiict, showing not only the
desirability,   but  the   workaliilitv
onipelling people to go to
clim-Ji. This was 'quite outside legislation, and ii was a matter for
the individual as to how he -should
.spend his lime. Mhat was proper in
lb.* way of educating the people, mor-'
ajly and religiously, was t-uile out
of the ijiie.slioti for legislation. Only'
this was carefully provided for; there
was to ,1.0 no sport for reward, in any
shape. This was the g*ra*feT"principle
1 mining through tlu art—it ruled out
ilu iiLa ul doing things for gain on
iIu''Lo:d's day, except in matters of
necessity.
'llu speaker outlined  some 'of    the
provisions  iu  this regard. 'N'o'freight
trains     could lju'made up and    sent,
out,    Yard  crews  were free  from  six ■
11  the  morning  till     tight at night.-
Railroad   construction   was   disallowed.   No Sunday papers,      which   had
proved   i«j  l.e  a   vulgarizing  importation from  ihe'U. \S.,  wifn* llieir hor-
rible   .yellow  and  red.       Many  other
features   were   referred, to.   Necessary
work,  sueh as,keeping tho fires going
11 smelters, or the sale ofi'/ilrugs, and
such   like,  weie  carelully  safeguarded.
One great  thing in the way of simplification  was  secured.   Wc  (lave one
day  recogni/itl, clear  through,  lhe Dominion,   not   two  days.    A   dead    s»t
was made by   ■ the Jews and  Adve-n-
ttsts,  representing U-tween them only
one half of     one i>cr cent.      Hut    it
would  have  lieen  outrageous *to saddle the otlur, 99 per cent,  with disabilities  on  their account.   This    was
a Christian  country,      not  .1  Jewish
one, aiid we,were some times in dac*
gerivil  forgetting it. .
As lo the individual. Christian (attitude, the lecturer pomted out that
general legislation did not measur.*
the cxtcJii- of their obligations. Law
is ...u thing, Christian s-entinnnt is
iiHoih-ei*.       Chrisiian  sentiment    j*ces

Objectif.ns had Itcell made to the
iiew act  iu  opposite  directions.  Some
aid il wiis too good—interfering,
with  ihe  liberties of the  people.  Oth-
rs said  it was no good—you    could

ill... liiovisio!!',, that,  induced  the sen- .drive a coaeh and four right through..
lie to pass the  act. Keillu-r  of      tlii-se'views    were  ri;;llt.
Different nations were, waking up to   The  speaker   1 hought      it   was    some
llu need of a better observance of th.*
Lord's day. Kor instiiiiee, 1'raiitV
had recently passed legislation, null
this was verv reinnrku'blv. Scn'-biud
and Miigland were waking up, seeing
the call lm* something to be done to
put a stop to the increasing Sunday
trading, which'entailed lhe employment of thousands of men. And we
must exercise the utmost care in empire building 011 this side. The ii(L
had the* [nil endorsement of ilu
i-reinicr, Sir Wilfrid Laurier. Ile

Several .questions were asked nt thc
close. One had reference ' to the powers of. the Province. Answer—The
I'rovinets have no powers of direct
legislation except 111 accordance with
ilu II. N, A. Act. Sunday legislation came under ilu I'Vderal govi-rn-
111'nt. Another quest inn had reference
to ilu* prohibiting of sport. Answer—.
Any individual is free to spend lhe
day as he pleases, but professional
sport is 1 ulcd out iu every form. Of

CASTOR OIL FROM SAWDUST
'By G. G,„M.
Some, years ago' I was manager oi
a gi.ri;ral store in a lumber, villa.;c
cn-the banks of tlu Ottawa liver.
Shortly alter takinj charge I noticed that largs quantities' of liaiv
oils, castor oil, glycerine, etc., were
. required to supply, the demand, and
knowing, tli; large profit oh tlusc
goods, I determined to buy llum in
bulk and bottle them, putting on our
own labels, and besides retaining, the
profit in tht concern, help largely tj
, advertise the business,-,
Tliis I accordingly iiid,r but see the
result,
One moruinjr I was sitting in mv
ollice, when in walked a gentleman
with a look of mUiisa curiosity depicted ou his countenance. Iu a voice
l-'liivering with pent-up excitement he
, askid me' il I was the manager of
tbe store. . Ou receiving an allinna-
•live reply, he produced a copy of an
Ottawa paper, and staling h.. w.-s a
reporter s.ni 'down lo inws'.igxite, he
asked nie if 1 had any 'objection to
.■•how liim through my oil works.
I looked at the man ami, IhotiVhi
of all l'u stories I'.mil r.nd ol crazy
people, but none ot them appeared to
tally wilh this.
"My oil works,!' I exclaimed,
"wh.it  do  you   mean?"
"Oh! ' the secret's out," .said li.*,
"wc know you have made au ■ important discovery. It's the talk of
the whole city."
Pu/./.lad and ama-.-d, T could not
iMKia-rstanri what lw was driving at.
I asked him to explain himself, wh n
he handed me a paper with the' following notice marked:
, . A XEW INDUHTRY,
Castor  Oil" Krom Sawdust—A   Wonderful and Valuable Disco .'ery. *
"Our readers have all heard of the
, Utopian scheme of extracting "sun-
bcauis from cueuiirliers," but something for more wr.nderful and'ot
gitriter interest to this city is the
discovery we have loainch of, onh
this moining, of extracting :aslor
o 1 from sawdust.
'"' One of our reporters, in makitij- the
rot lids of the market this moriiing,
noticed an itin.ranl. vui'lor of iio-mIUs
f.ewing. inachln.-; oil, etc.,' holding
forth on a corner, extolling th.* merits of liis wares. Curiosity, promoted
hint to stop, and approaching tli;
man, hi picked tip a bottle ol cislov
cil, and was ratlL.r surprizul to find
it learinj th; nam; o[ a well-k.unvn
lumber lirm down '..lie Ottawa. It
struck 'him as  rathjr odd,  that froin
ing run off, and as the weather was
cold, ths clerk had set the can inside
a box that was" being built around
a hot water pip-*- This pipe 'crosses
fran tlu- main building, anil in older
lo protect it from fro.,., saw dust (wa:;
bl-ing. paclaod' around the pipe in..id_*
the  box.
This is where thc pedlar saw th;
sawdust going in.
At tli-; other tnd sat tha sjuarc
can, with a faucet soid.-rul in, and
just nicely fitting inside the wooiLn1
case.
This is where he saw the oil come
out.
Wc rather think ,it lias been a hoax
Jail  around.
First the pedlar, th n our reporter,
and" lastly' the pub-lie, particularly
tliose interested in" or dependent on
the lumber industry. Tlu great interest manifest-.d in th.^ supposed discovery.-by the proi-.iini.nt luinl-ernun
of this city, is a balm to us :it this
our  hour of  humiliation.
We  must admit  that our    con temporary of the blanket press has    the
laugh on us this time,"
._:—:—o .
BABY XKAIUiY DIKI).
a sma'l village, end front a prominent lumber concern, sti.h a thing as
cantor oil should find its way into
(be hands of a pedlar. Questioning
tlu mnn, the following was ga'.h-red:
T.ho.i.iitinag.r of thai storv- (run in
cpni>;ction with ,,tlu inills at llu
place) has discovered n mocess l.y
which '• i'ii article is obtained from
pine sawdust, that upon ami/sis
can"v>t be distinguished from castor
oil*. Ii was no h.ars.ty.' lie claims'lo
have sen the sawdust .Utter a box or
reservoir, and the oil run out llu
p |jer e'ld. From cH'l'uir.y at the gov-
i riiuunt ollices we learn that ip ap-
a plication for n patent has yet bent
Hindi!, This is strange, for we thin'c
the fortuu.tte discoverer should ml
hesitate to at dice secure himself,.,
nnd we cau assure him there is far
more money in selling the a right to
maii'.ifaettiro wlurevcr a sawmill can
l.o found, than in attempting to product*, it on such a limited scale as wu
iimiy'iu hu ,is doing. What a . grand
sol ii lion of ilia sawdust nuisance - ao
|( tuirly coiiipla-'iiud of in this city!
What a revolution in* t*h * oil trade! To
cur mind, lhe a-ntury has produced
nothing iippi(*!ii-h''ii'g. this discovery
in usefulness, nnd the man who now
h.i.s a pile of H.twilusl inny veritably
lo ntx'A to possess a gold mine,
We are     s.-nding om of     our stafl
down to Interview the  nimpifacliiiei-,
'    n'ul   will publish " results   in tomorrow's issue,"
■ Jcutiliil'i; it over, mul still Hon-
jtlimwd, I handed the paper to one
ol my (isslstanm and asked him to
read it, mid nn I m\v hint smile dur-
in*j tlw puriin-il of tlm item, mnde up
my miiul hu knew' .soiiietliittj; of ihu

CURED HIS WIFE ,'
of LA GRIPPE
0
Quebec Man teils how the Great Con*
sumptive Preventative was
an all-round Benefit
" My wife took La Grippe when she waa
in Ottawa,"says R. N. Dafoe of Northfield
Farm, Que., in an interview. "'She got a
bottle of Psychine and alter using it for a
few days she was quite well. I took a cold
and am using it and am getting all right*.
I think Psychine is one of the best tonics
on the market to-day."..
There you have the whole matter in a
nutshell. La Grippe and colds are among
lhc forerunners of consumption.   '
This man had one, his wife had the other.
Psychine not only cured both but it built
(hem up so that their bodies are strong
enough to resist disease. All ..seeds of
consumption are killed by
