Th0inas I'ortev was about .15 years

children to mourn his loss, and to
face a world which will seem all too
full  of trouble and dark shadows.

Y. S. Iliissey, superintendent of
provincial "police, is still in the city,
•but is a very quiet man, and has a
situation which is remarkably quiet
to look upon. This pleases that
most efficient ollicer as much' as it
does tlie people of the district.
Trie'"'quietness of everybody is cosn-
iiuiiilable, and Mr. Jlussey is rot
likely to ,linvc to exercise any coercive measures.    „, '-
lie is a very unassuming man, -nil
litUd for his particular work and a
very companionable man with whom
to "converse.
The ledger is not in llu habit of
wishing good nun like Mr. llussey to
leave Fernie, but 11 inlet*1 tlu circuiu-

' Th. Outlopk, of Xew York, has laid
1-cforo its readers two ■ character
sketches, one of William Kaiidolph
Hearst, tlu other of IMr. Hughes; the
uu llu candidate of tlu Democratic j
party, *-anil llu other Uu candidate ot '
llu l.epublican party lor governor of
»h. great Stale of Xew York at the
election which occurs early in next
Tlu early life education nnd public
life of'tlu .iwo mill are compared in
a way which brings out the person.il
shortcomings of Mr. lleajsl" as compared io thi excellencies of llie n: i-
vate life and character of his oppoU-
tnt. ll coneid.s tlu great orguni/.iug
powers of Mr. Hearst, but does it in
a way to make ot that trail of character nn argument, • iu his case,
fig-air*.:,  iho man.
Th». Outlook concedes thc fact, however, that Mr, Hearst has done some
go,-.,d. in unearthing sonic great
wrosjf* during his brief career as a
newspaper  man.
In Mr. Hughes, the Outlook finds a
man    of    personal   purity,  a    great
worker     and   a man     who rendered
great service  in     his prosecution    of
ilu investigation into the g.ij^.inlie in-,
surance frauds,  which were  made the
fonudation  for  the  building  of  great
fortunes for a  few people  out of  lhe
,  earnings of the people of two continents. ■ ,
Tlu     Outlook  unhesitatingly    condemns Mr. Hearst as totally unfit'for.
lhe great responsibilities of the position to whiih he aspires,  and as one
►great ■ reason for so doing, il calls nt-
tmtion to the fact that Hearst is depending upon      the  support  of  Taiu-
,  nny, an institution which he only    a
year ago denounced  as corrupt,    and
us being led Ly men who should    \k
wearing stripes,  etc.,   etc-
There is no denying  these tilings.
'I'hat  being  tie case,  how    arc   we
to account tor    the fact that in' the
great State ot    New  York,  there    is
haivi- tlu co'n.io .sp.iul,

Or will he say:    ,

A few days after that eveiilful

After llr.it lhe. . old bureau . grew
',1-a-adily smaller, until the Kid, could
not. only reach the top, but 'could
see over il without the aid of a

Tiie Kid remembers lhat the, first

Hearst.. "I haw. so far avoided tlw
icily correct and splendidly null and
have printed something that palpitates. I have hammered, for instance, 011 the fact that IMr. ltaer
■has testified th.it anthracite coal
costs at the mine from 51.50 to .2.
It is carried Horn the mine to Xew
York for ahoui Jm a ton, and at
that price' tlie railroads, working
with the mine-operators, make a big
profit. Uut when you ask your coal
d.aler what he is compelled to pay
bv tlle I rust for his coal, he will tell
you tha*. the trust makes il impossible1 for him to sell it for less than
Sh.jyO a ton. The people are so iu-
W-ested in facts like this that , tli_y
tako my palier." *
"Well, they take your paper without electing, you governor."
"They may, but you perhaps .have
noticed that the people do not alf

more than ihey always take the correct, paper. I wSint to lay down for
vou a law that, sometimes seems* to
.govern iu a campaign that runs into
personalities. It is this: . 'Of two
candidates men will vote for the cne
they prefer to go fishing, with.' "'
Here Mr. Hearst was called out
by a delegation laden with banners,
ai:*l liquid enthusiasm, and the noise
lhat arof-e as he - appeared sounded
like a dog fight in the post ofiice.

Kot all'the goats are in Fernie.
Mr. Graham is not the only man
who can sport a goat.
The Kid hopes, however, that the
Feruie'boys won't takc it into their
heads to try tlie red riot water cure
ou the Ge111111e.ll si roc I Billie.
Think, boys, oi the chance you take
of being butted over the side of l_iv-
erbank Avenue before you undertake
any siuh experiments as those , Me-
Kcesport boys did as described below bv A. j. 11.
A McKeesport, Pa., goat was given
liquor by,some hoys who were doubtless under the iuiluince of cigarettes
and the comic supplements. Tlie
goat took to th- riot water like Jus
mother's milk and suffered from a
.surprising attack ot bighorn. • He ibut-
te.d two of the iboys over an enibank-
muit,- slopped a euchre parly by
diarg.inj; up r-n . the porch of a private residence, tied up trallic oh a
ear lin. by nearly butting the car
frc.il the track .and badly hurting tlie
niotorniaii, and was only secured -liy
the patrol wagon, whicli finally got
him into a livery stable, where time
and coiifiii'eiiunt reduced his jag-.
The boys who were bulled over the
i-iiilMJikiiiint have learned something
a*l|*-.ut goals which il seems th. comic
supplement should have taught them
The goat lias a sense of humor,
hut  it is Hot well to impose on it.

Insurance • Company and its directors
to thaw causu on four counts why un
injunction, should not l:c granted restraining the dufendauts from carry-
in j- on their campaign for thu election of the "administration' ticket"
ut llu expense of policy holders.
Tlu action was instituted by Stephen Farrcliy," geiural matui.ger of
Uie American ' Xews Company. He.
made tlu complaint in his own lie-
half and on. behalf of all other policy
holders of the coinpany lo restrain
waste and diversion of the company:*
funds, and to' compel the' dircclors-tii
account for tlu large sum's already
spent in carrying on their campaign.
The action .is ihu result''of the com-'
pany's alleged plan of campaign, .by
which "lu mutilated ollicial ballots
are alleged to have lie.ii sunt out
.through the company's agents with
Uu mines of Uu candidates oil the
inlui-1iatic11.1l comiuittee ticket struck
ull. and all ballots containing thu
number of an existing policy. It is
furl lur claim*.<1 th.il every efieri h.is
been mad.- by personal solicitation o(
the companies agents and by circular
Utters fiom various ollicials" ol' more
or less p'romiii.nce to induce the policy Insiders to vote tlu judiiiin.'.strali«Jii

for trustee on tlu international committee ticket of the Xew York Life

noticeable'in Hritish Columbia, where
jits  success  appears  to  he  the   ,most
marked   (now   writing oil   the   14th).
This   province   is   ripe   for   Socialism
ai-d   labor.   Miners   compose   tlu bulk
of  its electors.    Its  lands Lave,    b.en
pilfered   by   corrupt   le»'isla.tors,   and
its resources are in  du hands of oiu
or two monopolists.   This i.s the first
Canadian province to develop the economic and political state  from which
a  labor  and  Socialist  movement like
ours grows up.   Within ten years   the
legislature     lierc. could'be dominated
liy our people.     "Itut.unless tlure is a
