Geo. Clode Passes Away
Rather  Suddenly
The people of the city were greatly
shocked hist .Sunday afternoon   when
, it' was announced between  two    and
three o'clock that George   Clode was
Mr. Clode had been about the hotel
ns usual,' . ml n"o one supposed that
anything .1 u, serious nature was
troubling him,.'
On Sunday morning;1 Nov. 4th, Mr.
Clode, had intended to have had a
cyslie tumor re oved from the back
of Ins leg behind tlie knee joint,
which had been causing him a great
deal af nnin for, the,, lasl three
months. At eleven n'cl-ock Dis. Uon-
ueil and Corsaii arrived al the hotel
lo perform the opei-utiou with Miss
'Knisley and Mrs. Clodei who i.s a
graduate nurse, also assisting.
The chloroform was given at 11 a.
in.. Mr. Clode took it apparently
very well. His pulse was strong and
normal in every wny. His wife was
holding his handsl After, about 6 or
7 minutes of administration of the
cholorforni he muttered some indistinct sentences and partly raised his
head up ■ nd ■. dropped back lifeless.
All the slaTiclard heart stimulants,
which were in readiness at the ...ie,
as is customary, in giving anaesthesia
were administered without avail. Artificial respcratiou was contiuued for
over three hours without the least
flicker of iife, aud the doctors had to
reluctantly admit that the grim reaper was too many for them.
Mr. Clode was- 46 years old, a native of Ontario, his former home being at Klora, where his mother now
resides, and who has with her a
young son cf Mr. Clode by a former
wife. Mr. ;.iid Mrs. Clode were married some seven ycaps ago, and have
resided in Fernie ever since. • Mr.
Clode was lor a long time connected
with the -'.'rites-Wood Coinpany, and
since his ."-aving the linn he had been
for a short lime a partner in the,firm
of Ciode and Jchnson, but retiring
from the firm several months ago, he
became manager of the Hotel Fernie.»,
He was a cimrter. member of the Fcr-
laundry outfit in the back seats, and
everybody went home madder than 'a
-wet hen.

The body was followed from thc
hotel. lo Christ Church by a . large
concourse if friends and *a fiill turnout of the Knight.'- lasl Monday evening at live o'clock. The-church was
'filled with friends of tlie deceased," I
who was so long and so well known j
in the community.

the remains will be laid, to rest in}
the family cemetery.

Negotiations   in   Progress for Over a Week«Union
Representatives  Make  Concessions  but are
Turned Down=»Miners Prepare for a
The negotiations' which have been iu
progress -le.twecn' the Coal Company
management ami the national board
members of the 'United Mine. Workers
of America during the past week came
to an cud yesterday  afternoon.
A great ileal of preliminary conversation was indulged in leading up to
the final submitlim_ of propositions
looking to. a •.settlement. A great
mass of minutes of the discussion had
accumulated. , the-- nature of .which
need not be dealt with here, as it'
pertains mostly to. matters that have
already- been published and discussed
at lcnjrth.' After, six or seven daysof
this kind'of .work, Mr. i*,urke finally
submitted to Mr. Lindsey a proposition, the substance of which is as fol-
1 ° '
1'first, the Company to pay to the
U, MAW. of*A, monies now held by
Uic Company, and paid to it as dues
and fees of the union by' the men.
The strike to be declared off at
The Company to withdraw the lockout at Coal Creek and thc men to de-'
clare the strike of! at that'place, and
the mines, to be operated at once
with all ■.he men that have signed
the check-off agreement, as we understand it, and we submit to arbitration the interpretation of the checkoff clause for the life of thc agreement,' thc board of arbitration to
consist of five; members, two. to be
".elected by -.he Company, two by the
men, and they-to choose the .fifth
The men to go to work at once
without discrimination, and the- • decision of the board of-arbitration   to
the true condition of affairs,/ and   if   shop.   Did'you intend to embody    in
........ re       . ' . I
be final and binding on all parties.
Mr, Lindsey rejected this proposition and as a substiturc offered ani
other,'- the substance of which is as
• Thc men to say they had promised
that'the issue of the closed shop should
not he raised; that thcy'promised that
union men would not refuse to work
with non-union men; that President
Mitchell would never permit a strike
for that purpose, and that the raising ol' the issue of the closed shop
has been a mistake, Mr, Miicacll not
having been properly advised   as ■ to
reasonable efiort is made to put
things back in the position they were
iu before the telegram of the 11 th of
September, -so that there would , be
no advantage taken by the United
Mine Workers of what has lieen accomplished by ihe strike in the direction of bringing about the closed
shop,- and some reasonable suggestion
of reparation i.s made, then I would
feel disposed to meet your proposal
to pay. you-the money collected ,for
the check-off which is in our hands.
We would, f.el disposed to pay- you
that money, you sending the men
back at Michel. We would feel disposed to relieve the position at Coal
Crock by allowing the men to go back,
lo work who struck. Upon the question of whether or- iiot an order in
writing for deduction of dues given
under paragraph 5 of the agreement
lasts during the:life-of, the agreement
or not, to be submitted • to any
judge in chief justice of the supreme
colirt of llriiish Columbia for his
opinion without argument.
After some conversation regarding
the arbitration of the check-off and
as to its length of life, which developed the fact that Mr.0-Lindsey wished to confine the scope of the arbi-
iration to strictly technical and legal
Mr. ,.Burke submitted as a iinal
proposition the following, which will
be seen to be one on the' broadest
possible lines, and io meet" the contention of ihe management that - the
union had gained advantages by the
strike to get men to sign the checkoff clause:      * .'   '
We will allow all signatures ■ to be
Taiic ? i ic<lr*~"rird~tirarict~eirclr'lnairwho-
desircs sign again.• " ;
Then we will submit to arbitration
the check-off clause for' an interpretation to thc Piemieribf Hritish Columbia or anyone-, wliom he .may appoint, provided, that 110, miner, mine
'operator or judge1 or .chief justice, be
appoiutwl, - 'and we' .\Vilf go A.o work
pending a dedision;' all parlies to be
bound by llial- decision, whatever it
may. be.
Mr.     Lindsey     Answered—In *   this
sin lenient you have just made,    you
J dcii',1 touch the 'question of the closed
what you have just said any part ol
my proposal? o
Mr. Burke, replying, said—Mr.
Lindsey, pard*m me, I have said we
will cancel everybody.
Mr. I.indsey would not consent to
such a proposition, and negotiation-.'
have come to a standstill,
11 Mr. Burke will remain for some
time longer in the city, but Mr.
Sharjiwill leave tomorrow or next
It is a matter of profound regret
that the week of consultation should
result' so unsatisfactorily, ' .,
No comment i.s called for regarding
thc proposals of thc two parties,
Those proposals themselves are a sufficient comment upon the actions of
the parties to the controversy.
One side manifests a desire to have
the matter arbitrated by perfectly
impartial boards, with the broadest
possible scope as to the limits to
which it is to be confined; the other
side insists upon confining, ..the investigation to a strict,y legal construction of a certain clause taken bv itself, o
Before* doing this, however, it is insisted that certain portions of conversations . anil negotiations leading
up to the adoption of the agreement
shall be admitted as, deciding, the
legal point sought to be set up; that
i.s to say, thc men are to admit certain things which are not legally a'
part of the agreement,' in order to
secure a strictly legal judgment
of that- check-off clause:
To put i.t briefly, wc' have a lawyer
insisting that things not contained in
confine a judgment upon., an interpretation' of a paragraph of the agreement to strictly legal .lines, while the
other side to the dispute are willing
to have the investigation take the
widest possible'scopc.
The miners will hold a mass meeting in Stork's Hall tomorrow afternoon, for tlie purpose of discussing
the situation.

Interesting Convention is
Held at Vancouver
Probably llie most important cc. i:t
of the week in labor circles was ihe
capture by the Socialists of the convention held r.t Vancouver to form ai.
independent labor party. "fiver since
the meeting of the Uominiou. Trades
and Labor Congress at Victoria, llrit-
isn "Columbia Socialists * have been
preparing for the occasion! They were
determined that the Socialist parly
should uot 1« lost sight of in the
proposed independent labor party, and
threats were -i?jde that when the
convention to be cal,cd by the provincial executive of congress ,was held,
tho Socialists would be in control of
the situation. They have made good
their 'threats, The straight -labor
men walked ...ut of tlie convention, refusing to endorse tiie programme and
methods' of the Socialists. What future steps will be taken, if any, to nr-,
gani/.e an independent labor parly in
llriiish Columbia is not yet known.
One thing, however, is certain. Ihe
union men of Hritish Columbia or any
other part of Canada have nothing 10
gain and much to lose by allying
themselves with that bond of class
conscious, '.-revolutionary ' Spcj-J-sis
known as.the.Socialist party .of Cii 11-
ada, a party whicli by its' extreme
metholis has earned the contetlipt;' of
thc thinking union men of thc ■■ country.
There has been much discussion of
late in the labor press regarding the
different brands of Socialism, prompted largely by remarks made by J.
Ramsay McDonald, the British Labor
member of parliament, who recently
visited Canada.' Mr. Macdonald, who
in Great Britain is recognized as an
advanced Socialist, strongly condemn-,-
cd the methods of the Canadian and
American Socialist organizatians. In
a letter to Keir Hardie"s paper, the
Labor Leader, he says.
"Out here there is the nucleus of a
fine labor parly.' Hut the Socialists
do not .'.ecni lo understand the position.   They arc grinding away at their
cold. aKgiiess_ve,__acade_ni i cJonn nl a,
about 'class war,' 'economic determinism,' 'a class conscious "prolclari 1!,'
and everyone who" does not agree v,ith
them is a fakir or a scoundrel ol sonu*
degree or other, Many members of
the Socialist parly fully appreciate
the folly ot all this, und would be-
only too glad to respond lo a more
intelligent lead, but at the moment
nobody seems tribe, aide to'stand out
against the existing dominating fad
lion. A,split and thc formation of a
Canadian independent labor parly on
the British model would be tlie salvation of Socialism in this country.
"The barrenness of the present Socialist propaganda i.s particularly noticeable in Hritish Columbia, where its
success appears to be the most niarkod,   This proviuco i.s ripe for Socialism and labor.   Miners compose    the
bulk of its electors,   Its lauds    have
been   pilfered    by  carrupt legislators,
and its resources arc in thu hands nl
one or two, monopolists.   This is   the

There are many Socialists who do
uot believe m the methods of Haw-
thonith-vaite and Lis colleagues, and
who are strongly in favor of the formation of an independent lalior partv*
on the lines which have proved so sue-,
cessfiil in the Mother Country.
Mr. MacDonald in a letter to tho
London Chronicle recently, made soma
remarks about national and internal*
ionarunionism which have beci splui-
did material, after twisting them jp
a little, for the patriots who wo.!,.
save us from the American 'Federation. Mr. McaDonalil evidently docs
not regret that tlm'workmen of Canada'
mainly belong to ■ the international
labor organizations, he plainly sec*
that inlcniatianal unionism is necessary, al the present time at least.
Mr.-MncDonalil .sa}-*:
"The long days and nights iu the
train crossing Canada, thc vast
stretches of f„rcsl and wheat field
which one has" to g0 through,  explain
10 us this lack of labor commerce. ,
Nature has hitherto defied the creation of a Canadian labor movement:
ou lines parallel with the political
and economic interests of the Dominion. * This long, narrow, strip oi industry, stretching from Sydney 011
the Atlantic to Victoria on the Pacific, broken by hundreds of miles of
forest and faun at a stretch, cannot:
cohere. Willy-nilly, Canadian labor.
cannot stretch its arms cast and west,
only; it' is doomed to Traterhize -with
the south as well. To the manufacturer, Canada'is an industrial entity;
to the workmen it is nol.
"It is a grim comment, however, 011
what passes as imperialist sentiment
that in the province where 'imperialism is said to be at its lowest ebb,
Quebec, the trades union movement-,
is organized nationally, and suspicion
of the United Slates'.finds-expression
in independent Canadian labor organizations, ' whilst in these provinces
supposed to be most Hritis^n, organur
cd labor pays fees to United States
"Tin's cannot be helped at present,
hut it brings a dualism into the lifo
of the Canadian trades uuionis-t as
worker ' and citi/.cn, which will undoubtedly hamper-him in creating a,
labor party for the Dominion.
Many Canadian unionists, as iiiuat-
sec our workmen * belonging to national rather than international organizations, which i'roin the nature of
things, must be largely controlled by
'.mcricans. Hut the fact remains
that so far national unions* are fail
ures. They are. largely used as tools
by parly politicians, find the Canadian-Manufacturers' Association i.s also supposed ii. hiii'c much inlluenc'e
with their leaders. Mr, MaeDoiiald's
comment upon the situation iu (Jue-
bec is founded 011 suppositions' imt ■
entirely correct. International unionism is gaining largely throughout
Quebec, and at present nearly all the .
skilied tradesmen, and especially
those of Hritish descent, .belong to international  unions.

Al  ih.  iirst election for the newly

General1,  was  rctuined for Prince Al-

lion   against  th_* minister .was    lilwl
hy Mr.    A.  A.  Slraduui.   .  The case
was heard by     Mi.  Justice'   Pender-
gast, and he accepted th;   contention
of  Mr.      Laim.nt's cuimst-l  lhat    th":
Controverted   Klections   Ordinance   of
the former Territorial House was not
in force, and therefore,  lhat the    petition   must  fail.'Naturally'such    a
decision      was  appealed  to  th*;    full
court,  and  the result ot th.   appeal
was made known   only   a few   days
ago.   Tk.!   judgnunl  ol   Mr.    Pcnder-
gast is continued, three of th. judges
supporting  him.   The other  two    recorded ^dissenting opinions.  Thc whole
discussion centred  about the wording
wt sections j 4 mul Hi in the Saskatchewan Act '   passed by- the    Federal
fHaiu*.    in  1905.      Scc'liou    14  said:

Knipirc,-    the  leading     organ of the
Conservatives,  says:
•■This gentleman can speak for his
own parly, and not for the Conservatives. 'The evils may Ih; common

deprecates the making of party capital out of tlle evils, what h-e means
is that these -mailers should not be
discussed oih.rwise than in a manner
lhat is not h(;.slil_ to the rogues.
This i.s had advice,"
It is lo be understood from this
lhat there arc 110 rogues among* the
Ccuserva.ives. If this be true, there
can not but 'be universal astoiiislr-
meiit that the Canadian public does
n0t recognize • a parly o( so great
purity by putting it iu power and
keeping it there. People, however,
who have studied politics in any
country will hesitate to believe that
there is one party in Canada in
which no evil exists.

years there have lieen - some most
startling revelations as to graft and

" It It twelve years sines'Psychine curod
me of galloping consumption." Tho
speaker was Mr.' A. E. Mumford, sis feet
tall, and looking just what be is a husky
healthy farmer. He works his own farm
near M&gnctawan, Ont.
I caught my cold working as a fireman
on the-CP.R." he continued. "I had
night sweats, chills arid fever and frequently .coughed up pieces of my lungs. I was
sinking fast and- the doctors said thero
was no hope for me. Two months treat,
ment of Psychine put me' right on my feet
and I have had no return of lung trouble
If M.. Mumford had started to take
Psychine when he first caught cold he
would have saved himself a lot' of anxiety
and suffering.' Psychine cures all lung-
troubles by killing the germs—the roots of
tbe disease. ©

Savud Just in Time by Dr. Williams'

"Before my daughter Lena began
taking l)r. Williams' Pink Pills she
looked more like a corpse than a
live girl," says IMrs, Geo- A, iAlylcs,
of South Woodslee, Out. "Her Wood
seemed" as thouj-.li it had all tinned
to water. Th.n slu .Iwgaii lo have
bad spells wilh her heart. At the
least excitement lur heart would
licnt so rapidly as to almost smother
lur. Site grew" very thin, had no
appetite, and what little food* she
did cat did not seuiu .to nourish her.
She was treated by nnc of the best
doctors in this part of the country,
yet she wns daily growing worse and
lur lt.iart got n() bad that we were
afraid that she would die. She slept
but .very little, and would fren-ucnt-
ly awake' with ,11 start and .sometimes
would jump 1'ig.lil "up oil 'bed. These
starts would alwnys bring, on a bad
spell nnd leave lier weak and exhausted, We hud almost given up
till hope of her ever being well again,
wh.n wc decided to try Dr. Williams'
I'liik I'ills, Alter taking ft couple of
Luxes she began to sleep butter at
nights, and color begnii tn return to
li.i' lips, l'roni that nu she kept
tight on gaining, and niter Inking
,*lght .boxes nf the 7 pills slu was
again in gnod health. She is now
Iifli'iii years of age, the pii-ture of
h.tilth," and since hegiiuiing- tlu Tills
has gained about forty pounds in
weight. Only -tlit-st* who saw hgr

•An,article appeared in the AVinnipcigi
Free Press of tho 1st ins':., which is
dated at Chicago Oct. 31st, and purports to he an'1 interview. .Iwtwcen, a
press representative and Messrs. Uoli-
-rtsott aud K.iiaslan relating to tlieir
great coal properties in Soutliern Al-
fcrla. Th_ following, is' the report
referred to:
Chicago,   Oct.   31.—Three    per  '"-nl.
of all the coal  lands in ill.    United
States and Canada aro owned in,-.IUin-;
iu-apolis and St.'Paul, as*, tlw   result
uf negotiations which  have just been
fully   coiuunuiial'.-d  h-rc.      The    two
men who are in control of th- gigantic movement in     llw Canadian hitu-
. nionious coal are V. K. Ktnasloii, of
' Minneapolis,  and 0.  A. llohertson, of
■; St.  l'aul.   -They  are  her,-,   with" Cliief
Manager  Charl.toii   Dixon,   and    contracts   arc   being   awarded   and   deals
-, for   thi    electrical    machinery closed
which involve an immediate expenditure of .2,000,000.
•- The name of ill. company is the
Canada West Coal and Coke Co. It
owns loo .'-{|unr<: miles ot coal lands
in Soutli-rn Alberta already, all
south and west of Lcthbridge. Part
of the property was in a crude state
of development when the Twin City
men took hold of it, lint now tlu
deal has been finished and real de-
' velopmciiL will commence in earnest.
Tk. product will be, in fact is .being
shipped at present as far. east as Winnipeg anil into Montana, Washington
and other western states.
Tt is tlw aim of the owners to
eventually secure ibptter railroad
rates thalAvill enable l3i.?i|*. to ship
into Minnesota.
Mr.   Ken.istoii,   was      accompanied
here by S. A. Harris     and    another
banker  of  Minneapolis,    but he  says
that they have uo interest in the new
coinpany.   "There   are   several    Minneapolis people  win* have  minor    in-
t-. rests,  but  I do not know    if   they
would care to have their names mcti-
tio'_-.d,"   he    stilled.    "Wo    have  lteen
working on      this  thing- (juicily    for
about  three   months,    and    are    not
i.nxious for  ally publicity now.     We

Williams' Mwlicin** Co., Hrockville,
A Paris dispatch of the 31st October, states lhat Prime Minister
Clem-jucv-au had .decided to make the
purchase bf tlw Western Railroad a
part 'of his policy, and also, that
Minister of Public Works lJarthon's
project of revision of the mining laws4
will have for its basis tha taking-
over of all minis by the government,
and that the, miners are to be allow-,
cd to participate in the profits of opera .'■».
The coal mining districts of Prance
may 1« bulked in two main divisions,
that in the northeast, known as the
VaU-n'ceiines district, embracing the.
western extension of the great Belgian coal iiuids, and the southern district known as the, St. Hlicnne:
Tliiere ar. other smaller fields, but
iic.113 of them of very great extent.
The coal i.s lignite and anthracite.
' About 30,000,000 tons are taken
out* annually, which docs not supply
the home consumption, large quantities being imported from Kug.ln.iiil
and Belgium.
A great' deal of llw fuel used , for
domestic purposes in Franco today is
wood. !
Krom this it will bo seen that the
taking over by tlle government ., of
lhe c0al mines is no small undertaking, and means the beginning of a
great ihange  iu that  business.-
The coal barons of Pennsylvania
have of late become so rapacious and
overbearing, in • their methods that
ihey have raised against themselves
the cry of government ownership- o'*-
control. Bv their own actions tliey
are*, likely to kill tlieir goose. ' One
of the elements entering into the
-.resent political agitation in the
t'nitad States .is this very ■question.
ern Railroad by the Kreiuh. government,' that is only thc carrying out-
of a fixed policy of that government.
Part of the railroads of Prance
are already government property,
and all private-owned . roads ate
l.ccomu the property of the slate,
some time. There are, or were,
1900, 2q, 125 miles*
Kratice, i,S;o miles
owned and -operated
iu-coiding to stipulations in their
■.barters, all,roads are finally -to become public property at'the will of
lhe Slate.
A fewoinon.hs ago a 'great deal
was being said .it: the press about W.
J. Bryan's declaration in favor of tins
government of llw, United Stales
owning all tlie'ron'iTs fii libit country,
and.some little newspapers were milking sport of such a proposition, .W'.-
e.iuse of, llw tremendous task of
financing the seheine, ibul Uncle Sam
could take care' of lhat little mutter
iiud' by squeezing the water, out of
lhe -stocks place tliose roads upon a
l.nsis.of profit to the goveiniiiiMil, at
much, heller rates than nre now being"
The govi'innuut ownership o( all
public utilities is on-* of llw certain-
lies of tlw future. How soon tlw
.-hinge ' will Ini' brought' about depends more upon the ' greed nt tlw
•mseiit owners than upi.ii nny otli'i"
