One of the  Largest "Development Concerns in the
Country to Operate Near Fernie
After more thai: a year ol persistent effort to obtain entries am! titles
to coal lands, in Southwestern All-wr-
ta, -Mr. 0. A. Robertson, Mr. F.^ 11.
TJ. Lynch and Y. K. Kenasten have
at last succeeded iu having titles issued to them for jifty-fivi*. square
miles of coal lands lying on both
sides of. Livingston j range of 11101111-
taiu-i. This range of mountain-- is
separated from, thi- main range ofthe
Rockies by tlie rather broken valley
of, Ui*> Livingston... river, a branch of
tlu Old Man river. TI12 lands secured by tha above named gentlemen are
situated on both th*. east and west
sdes of Uu Livingston/, range, the
block on th;: west being iu Livingsta* river 'basin, and those to the
east are on the slope to llu pass
•which separates th. Porcupine Hills
from the Livingston, range.
The southern limit of these coal
fields are about twenty-live miles
norlli of tlu Crow's Xest branch of
tlu C-l'. II., aud extend norllurly..
some fifteen miles.
Seventeen square -miles or theso
holdings' lie cast of the range .and .he
remainder on tlu* west: There is a
arc cn the.cast slope. Tlure i.s a
'large quantity of timber, suitaibl.*; for
mining purposes, on the land, and
croppings of iroo of a good cjualily
have been foun.-.l, ibut no effort to ex-
plore that ]>art of the property . has
as yet been made by thu" owners,
though tluy " intend to investigate
this feature of their property thoroughly as soon as the coal has been
opened up.
A description of tlu coal areas   ol
this tract and their thickness   would
read like a romance, so extensive are
they and so,-many layers, .one   above
. another.     '       ■'
-* . .-*
One .of the many experts   wlio Jiave
Leen examining this property for- the
iuw owners during the past twelve
i^r eighteen months, reports that four
M.*jiiarc miles in one body has a continuous bed of coal in layers ranging
from 3 to a!, feet in thickness of suf-
~"   JlcitnT"quantity to "keep a mine    go"
ing at thc rate of 2,000 tons daily for
,    K.o. years  without     any   appreciable
impression upon thc stock of coal.
It is estimated Uiat at ihe least
t.lure is an average of- 20 feet'of good
...coal exit tiding throughout£0.;. eutue,
urea, and.taking those estimates, as
a l.asis, tlu 'quantity or coal secured
■' l.y iluse very fortunate gcntlcmc-ii is
almost',''beyond the grasp of 'the
]iii!ii*i.i'.,iitlml. Assuming that'll c-.ij.ic'
yard, of coal in. place, weighs a ton;.

runs LcyoiuL'the millions into Uu,billion perlVxi of notation.
People have thoughl that tlu coal

Canada ' would "earn* a lasting claim

if it should-be tlu first to place on
its statute hooks the mandatory law
that 110 man shall have tlu.* opportunity' placed within his'reach of

Tlu Ledger lias the faith to lielieve
lhat slu will, and it shall uot flu aaid

bringing about such a' reform. ' "
When this method of* roUiorv has
baun made impossible by' tlu simple
ri'incdy first suggestul by this paper,
-.here will lie much less cause' for
friction between latar organiwitions
and  tlu*  money  organizations.
Had such a law been 011 tlie statute

Company business was conducted by
a directorate, created ' and organized
for tlu express purposa of conducting
th.il particular business, independent
of.any other business, it would Iw

and such nun would lie able to get
along with their employees, as does
the same kind of a management at
Coleman, under -tlu very noses of
those who are playing at the man-'

"legally  trained minds."
In llu meantime it-i.s necessary to
keep lurping. upon Uu fact '-that
unions ore dishonest and irrespon-,

wiih by people who belong lo tlu

Frank  Paper.
Ordinarily the Krank Paper.alsstalns
from seeking to take'any hand.in the
dilliculties that arise from lime lo
time between tlu United .line Workers bf America and the various corporations industrially' engaged in the
Crow's .Vest Pass, realizing that such
interference, is usually looked upon as
meddling by llu parties concerned,
and that as a ccaiseinietice it rarely
accomplislus good, more often doing
harm, but in tlu strike situation at
Feinie and Michel, as tlu controversy
between the niinc workers and the
Crow's Nesl Pass Company is ordinarily characterized, or Uu lockout,
us tlu nun term it, there are all tlu
possibilities of an economic disturbance so widespread in its effects that
the interests of a very large section
o! Ihe industrial life of Western Canada may lie* jeopardized and perhaps
seriously injured. Therefore, in the
interest of tlu common good, we feel
that wc are warranted in this , instance in "butting in," if you choose
to so term it, in ths hope that we
may. say something thai may start
cne or both sides to the controversy
to thinking along a new line, and
thereby ;ontribute our mite' toward
prompting a settlement of what may
lasily become the most serious upheaval between capital and labor that
has yet confronted this part of tho
To begin with, we will say that
the Krank Paper is fairly well in
touch .with the inside of things in relation to the difficulty in question; it
has fairly accurate information on
llu. points in controversy and the conditions that exist; it knows the lead-,
ers on 'both sides, and knows them
with a degree of1 acquaintance which
it believes warrants it in expressing
a conviction regarding them. It lw
lieves General "Manager Liifdsey,. of
the Crow's Nest Pass 'Company, lo
lx a man of broad tolerance, whose
innate .impulse would lx* in favor of
the welfare- ol his employees. Mr.
Lindsey once said to the writer, at a
time when he had no reason to expect his remarks to "he repeated, and
therefore could not have been talking
miration for tlu ollicers of the United
Mine Workers. , lie praised the moderation tliey had manifested in previous dealings he had with .llum, and
expressed tlu lx:lief that so long as
the then ollicials were al tlu head of
the union he would never have any
difficulty in settling any dispute that
inighl arise ibetwcen the union and
company. Di the men on the other
s-ide, llu Frank Paper also holds a
good opinion. ll docs not believe
them to be the demagogues and labor
autocrats they are so often painted
' It does not believe they are infallible
-uiul never nuike mistakes, but it does
believe they are conscientiously striving lo the best of their light to protect anil advance the interests of the
men who compos-! the organization
of whiih tluy cluincc* to l*e the .snokes-
iiun thnnii-h having been elected lo
ollicial positions. Il knows, loo, thai
most ol these men ut least hold Mr,
Lindsey in high esteem, . More than
tm of them, Mr, Sherniaii, Mr. Patterson, mid others of the. ones to
wliom Mr, Lindsey referred, have said
to the writer that tliey considered Mr.
"Lindsey nu excet-dingly fair man, and

union nun until tluy were ready
to believe llu coinpany was con.spir-
ing to disrupt the union by encouraging men to, withdraw from it.
If Mr. Lindsey examines iiito this
phas; of tlu,case, he will no doubt
iiiitl why the men .struck without
wailing to try their case through the
various tribunals provided for the adjustment of such grievances. It will
not justify them in failing, to live up
to tluir agreement in that respect,
but being a leader of men, he will lie
able to appreciate the (act that the
average horde is not endowed, with
suilicient self-control to check llu
outbreak of passion wlun patience is
gone, and in the knowledge ,hc will
have gain.d of Uu tilings that have
led up to the present difficulty, he
will lx. able to lind suilicient palliation, to warrant him in renouncing
his claim lor indemnity for the cost
of the cessation of operations.'
So much for Mr. Lindsey's side.
IVkal, about the men? ■ Undoubtedly
they were wrong in going on strike
•before? Uu last means of adjusting
their grievance was exhausted, notwithstanding, llu extenuating circumstances. Let them, therefore exercise just as much candor and sincerity as would |»e incumbent upon Mr.
Lindsey to. enable him to arrive al
tlu solution suggested for him. I,et
them frankly acknowledge their error
as he has asked them to do, and jjive
siuh assurance as will satisfy him,
tlia.1 there will not be a recurrence of
this sort of thing during llu life5 of
ths agreement. Let them live up lo
their agreement, and let Mr. Lindsey
see tihat his overmen do Uu same,
and we are inclined to think tlure
will 1>; puacc.'
We have small hope of such a culmination of the deplorable affair, but
wc venture to say thai if tlu.se suggestions were to be acted upon, thc
strike, or lockout, or whatever it i.s,
would be at an end within <- twenty-
four hours:, from the tinu an effort to
settle it a long these lines were commenced.      , ,     o   -
ih-. manager that if.he would examine
liis .own ease* a little more carefully
hu would lind out more things that
arc not right.
Now, that ought to make Lindsey
sit up and swear!
A lawyer to be Iold that lu don't
know his case! If the Ledger were to
talk like that it would have to move
out of town. But coining fro.11 a
man who is making such a commendable effort to prove that cix-i-yhody is
light and all Iiaiuls wrong, Uu ledger
sincerely hopes that . the amiable
manager will-*overlook what might at
first sight appear to l>e a reflection
upon his aibility to "know thyself."
If h. will beari in mind the fact
that the Frank speaking fellow gives
the otlur side a little ,of the same
medicine, it may help him to keep tlu
ruilles out of his temper while lu is
being cajoled into the notion of,, renouncing his claim for indemnity. .'
Th 11 Uic soul of frankness gives tlu
ininsrs some more of Uu same kind
of mediciiu, with full directions as to
wh n lo take a dose, and winds np
with tlu assurance that if botli patients will shake before taking, .and
lake as-directed, a physic is sure to
follow. But like all wise doctors
who don't propose taing caught by
results, he gravely shakes his head
and says, as he,leaves llu (hauiher of
sickness,. thai lu doubts very much
after all wlielU.r tlu patients ■ will
lake his sugar-coated pills.
Now, if .the Ledger could write such
a siiioo"th, two-sided article as that,
it would have a fortune in tlu shape
o£.2'ads. and 75 cent bits of job
work Hung at it from all sides. But
alas, il 'hasn't tlu ability! '
 —'- o	
We reproduce in full the "butt in"
of the Frank Paper on the strike' situation proffered, as is stated, in thc
lope that the "butt" may pave the
way lo an amicable settlement of the
present troubles'.'
Tlu writer of the "butt in" hopes
ih.u his suggestions may lead to a
new litu of thought which tniglit lead
out of the quagmire.
This reminds tha Ledger of tlte.raith-
er novel procedure adopted by an
irate driver of a baulky horse to
get him to go,
He filled tlu contrary_ brute's car
with dirt, atid before llu horse had
recovered froin the surprise of having, liis cur slopped up tliat way, he
had forgotten the kiulking business
nn.l was pulling away like the liest.
pulling horse in tlie world, and trying to shake tit. dirt out of his ear
iis he went, but ns soon ns the car
was clear of tlle dirt, the horses's mind
got back to llu stubborn stage, nnd
he siuldinly renumbered what hi seemed lo think wus his special , business,
and refused to pull any more. The
second trial of Uu dirt cure hud 110
effect, and some other method Iuul lo
lx: udopti'd lo get hiin to go, The
"butt iu" idea of' getting both sides
to foigel things uml start pulling, i.s
a good one for temporary purposes,
but would be like 'this dirt in tlu enr
cure—not lasting,
This article, .states thai Mr, I.iiulscy

oiliccrs of lhe union, nud tlu union
officers had seen his blind nnd strati*

dning the two inlniilc stunt with one
Last Friday evening a letter written,
by the then president of OladsloU-:
local union, Mr. Dicken, appeared *in a.
local paper which is well known as a
non-union paper, both as to its own
business mid in its sympathies' in the
present trouble between the management and the miners.
This letter was headed in 'big letters, accusing District President Sherman with'1 treachery to the union.
Tlu letter itself contained very little)
lhat had not baeii published before,
but coming from the president-of the
local union, it was expected to have
a great effect, and these expectations
were fully realized, so far as stirring
things up and crystali/ing the feel-
inaisi (if the union miners is concerned.c
a    . * O"
President  .Sherman  was  away    and
did uol get back to Fernie until after
noc.n on Saturday, and ktuw nothing
of- llu letter until he found it on the
table  in  tlu. hall  when  lu entered to
id to discuss matters relating lo let-
tiiigi of crntracts for provisions    and
otlur. matters.   The hall'was full    of
miners.who had read the letter,   and
,wlio were full of indignation at Pres-
•     -i
.ident Dicken for having given such   a
.statement     to the public,al   such   a
time and in such a manner as lu had
done,   wlun he had recourse  to h,gh-.
cr authority  within  tlte order    .if  he
l.ally wislud, to mend matters."
There,was no two sides to the dismission over the matter, and Presi-
dint Dicken had to bow to tlu united
will of Uu itkiUi-.-i and nl once resign
his position.
He had no excuse or cxplnniilion lo
offer except that he maintained that
what lu.slated in his letter was true,
He was offered n committee before
which I12 could' make his defence, but
did nol seem to relish doing so, However, a committee wns formed and n
time sjt for him to ni'al'e 1111 effort to
sqtinre his, conduct with tlu obligation he owed to his union i( ho so
Mr, Moore wns elected president
pro tcin to fill the vacancy so sud-
duily created, and Imsltiess goes on (is
So one doubts that it would hnve
pleased some people if this iiiijusliliable .notion on the part of Mr, Dicken
had resulted in n rupture, of the local
union, but the effect il has wns cx-
nctly thu reverse, nnd nothing has
huppeiutl since tlu trouble bt'gnn thut
Has brought tlu men so close ingellier and so nailed than has thin unexpected nctlott of Mr. Uickeii.
Thnt n 1111m should, by his own
liusty nnd ill-udvised nction huvi:
brought such smliliii humiliation upon himself is much to he regretted,
ntid hud tlu iiieinU-rs of the union
hem so lorgelliil of their duty to
ib'uir nrgiini/iilinii as to huvu shown
the slightest sign nl wavering, the
result would have been disastrous to
Uu 111. Hut ns it hits turned out, Uu

Every step he took in llu mal'aer
seemed to be the most ill-advised U.iat
he could have taken, and if he -was
innocent of* any wrong intention,, his
position al present i.s all the nnore
keenly felt.
Had Uu brought his -ill-timed communication to the Ledger, a paper he
kn.w was favorable to the union and
whose editor had but recently shared
his confidence with him and submitted the draft of Uu article dealing
with the whole trouble, which appeared on the front page of the ledger only tlu day 1-efore, Iks letter
would never have been published to
bring upon himself such sudden retribution. "
Tlu editor of Xhz Ledger, or anv
otn_r man who has tlu welfare of tlu
miners of this district at heart, would,'
have told Mr. Dicken that he was in
110 way justiliable in making public
statei'i.nts regarding the conduct of
ollicers of Uu union until h_ had
gone to llu highest court iu the order, and nol even th:n making public"
what all orders of the nature of the
union regard as* strictly private business. No accusing of others of tlu
same offence will be accepted as palliation  by his associates.
Tlu paper that published it could
have had no desire to in any way
lend aid to tlu cause of unionism,
aiid tlu miii.rs and otlur workm-.il of
this district have a practical demonstration of th. love thai an 'iin._itr
shop has for them.
If a  few of  the citi/'ir-- of -Ferine
would  display  Uu  determination that
tliu miners     are showing-during    all
thesi    unpleasant   '"happenings,    this
community would be iii a much   bet.
ler. condition than     it now is,    and
there would lx: fun* less possibility of
friction and strife.

ll-ear Kid,—Can you tell an anxious
union man. how to" best serve liis
Oh, yes! Don't patronize any other union if you can,.find a non-union
'hop to tlo your work, and solid all
your advise as to how to run your 1
un.i-r.ii to some paper tliat you know is,
opposed to your union anil all other
unions, and .which earns iis bread and
liiitter by working* for your oppon-
mts. '■     .
This course may prove, temporarily
disastrous to you and your particular1 Hindi; hut you will not lx: open
to tin iliarg-j of having gone to a
fri.nd in order to secure a partial verdict,
This is a fault you should constantly seek to avoid, even to "tlu
extent of breaking up all tlu union''
in tlu miiveise, rat lur than do things
that would indicate that" you arc 1111-
By keeping this advise pasted in
yonr hat and following thc hat all
th? time, you will lie sure, of some
kind of rt'sulls.
To Tlu Ledger Kid:
D.'ar Kid A-I have concluded that I
* am tho olily man now Tn sight in \llte
Fernie ^district thoroughly ei-t-ipp-ed by
dame Ji;iliire iuul other ladies who
know. how to add to tlu natural,

necessary to qualify a man for the
ou.irons aiid mrivitiiig respcnsibil-
ilities of the position or represeii'.a-
tiveof this district in tlu provincial
parliament, and I write to ask, you
il vou could pill nie on to a capable
iiir.n of experience aiul wisdom to
whom I could entrust tlu* job of getting nie before the people in tha
proper light (cn the tpiiet you know),-
so that I would be sure ot the nomination ami stand to win at llu polls.
Jf you can put 111c next to such a .mail
1 slinli feel under great obligations
to you, -and as a slight asknowlcdge-
ur, nt of: your anticipated kindness, I
"hereby authorize you to , exleii-.l tlu
tlate of my snliscription to tlu Ledger for two more years, and as soon
as I have     been elected M. Y. P.,    I

would gladly make the time four
years,',hut I fully, realize, that it is
within tlu possibilities-that a' gov-
enuniiit may not live out its term,'
■.hough, tlu lion. Dick has almost furnish .d his demonstrution of tlu fact
that almost any. kind of a government can outlive almost any loathsome political diseal'e if il has been

Itfy Dear >Greenhorn:
Your confidential note of iiv-uiry as
to 'my stotk of kno\vle.dgo on the coal
an.d coke, biisini-ss, ' is at hand, and
has caus.d me .'to take off mv, kiue
pents, put" on;: niy. nighty ■ a and -sleep
o\vr tlu nia'Ucr.: '
I have, as,you; say, liveh some time
under llu shadow of tlu-smoke from
ilu coke oven.;,' 'and consequently my
ideas may be a little ha/.y, ,but-\\;lun
elonrnd of gas1 you will, I tli'iik'niul
f.ome lucid .suggi'stii.ii's.
In tlte lir.st'place, your, idea of pay-
in;- all your attention to the mining
of coal and the making of coke is
o.k.'; don't divide your attiMilic'ii. If
th.re are any side issues, they will
work ih.iuseives through the aid of
other people.
The c oiupany lure has a. subsidiary
company, a colt of the old mare, as
it were, which travels alongside . of *
the"old lady, and causes more tro.ilpf,
tl._-.iiii a. whole team of old horses, and
it hns been found, by actual cxperi-
tnc?. tliat this colt eats up thixv-
foiirtiis of tlu profits of the mother,,
so lhat tlu coal and coke business
inly turns out 2'. per cent, profit.
Thc management here don't want
any thing to do with tlie measlcy colt,
but have to keep it going, although
it costs nioiu than its mother to
keep. The manager and two or three
of the directors have said to inc. that
tliey cl'iii't want to bollur with side
issues, and it is on their statements
that I base niy judgment- about side
lin.s in ■' .the coal mining business.
".'he product of tlu mines here, expressed in dollar shape, as slated by
tiu of   the ollicials, i.s as' follows:

charg'O of- the simplest minded miner
that could 'be procured," you can
readily sec from which product or the
mines comes the bulk of the profits.
It i.s an old saying that goods well
bought are'hilf sold, but 1 hav.' re-
ee'iMly heard of a method of selling
coke that makes it entirely uiiuee-cs-
sary 10 pay much attention to the
cost-of production, or buying, which
I would advise you to take a visit to
Mfntaiu und investigate. If tlu com-
pi ny us ng ihis method of. selling has
imt taken out a patent ou'the process, I don't sec why you could not
■ndo'il the same method. A letter to
I'nela Sam might bring you the ncc-
eess.iry information. In conclusion, I
might say lhat the company operating. Keiiiii: h.is ou hand.a job lot of
s.cond-haud tools of ' the political
variety which tluy are discarding as
fast as tluy can procure new ones,
and'' whicli you might get at a very
low figure, if capital to lit up your
plant should happen to be a little
•!i.-rt. These tools are a. Utile buttered and -belli up, and of no use
whatever in ihis Kernie soil, but a
goi.il blacksmith with" n heavy hammer mi-.'lit straighten llum om so
that in 11 iuw place lliey would lw of
some use.
' In selecting n place to go into the

I fully appreciate your most " laudable ambition to add,to the population of onr city a family of your «wi*|

have looked inlo -the house problem,
end find that it is possible t-o get. a
house of,,almost any si/e, without
price, which you might fancy, if you
strike tlu right parly ■ .-at the right
time. , I shall keep my eye on the

guarantee the i\nt lieing paid by anybody else if you undertake lo live in
it and start raising that family.
However, I shall do tlu best I can
as soon as conditions favor a sud-
din move in i\al estate and houses.
II is .a pity you were not in the mar-'

so lively was tlu market and so liberal were the 'terms.

the assurance that time would mend

The dreamer says men and women
should ' grow more devoted and ' fonder if they have any idea of being
happy, in a yoked-up condition.
Ilut th.n they generally do have
tlu most extravagant ideas of how-
happy they are going tn be. What an
absurd dream to dream, that newly

Last' week thc. Ledger piil>li-Ji5d a
.-hor. articli* in advocacy of compulsory arbitration for labor troubles,
and it believes it voiced tli:: sentiment of tlis public and of on ever-increasing*, number of labor men who
look more ^seriously into this matter.
l.ut if unions arc to lx: broken up
and every attempt ma»b to discour-
■ age unions, as i.s being done now in
Kernie by the management of the
Coal Company, aided by the clamors
of a few people who are talking all
sorts of nonsense calculated to discourage union**- ,mtn and encourage
non-union men, the unions will be
slower than ever in concluding that
ihey can entrust their cause to men
wlio. b}' their works and words iu
time of need, belie their professions
of friendship to unionism,
But aside from this, will some wise
man tell us how arbitration is going
to 'be worked if the labor side of the
controversy is to be dividud up into
individuality instead of being compelled to come licfotc such boards as
ii company oi organ!/a(ion?
If th:>  principle  of  combination    is
not to be eiteouragv'd, and the laboring, people were compelled lo go in
small bodies or individually before a
board of arbitration; there would be
no end to arbitration.. It would have
to go on indefinitely.
The principle of unionism will have
to be recognized, and if it is, then
compulsory arbitration can be carried out most effectively.
The sooner the, public recognize tliis
,fact and .demonstrate to organised
labor they are its friends in dead, not
mock friends, as many people arc
■ now proving to be, " the sooner will
.union men look upon them as real
friends and !,. willing to entrust their
* disputes to them for settlement.
■ With thc miners recognized in thc
fullest sense, and compulsory arbitration iu force as tlte machinery by
uhidi to settle differences iKtwcen
capital and labor, the excuse for
strikes and lockouts would disappear,
and a great stride in tho direction of
industrial peace would be accomplished.   4
Don't imagine, however, that the
labor unions nrc going to look wilh
loo much favor upon this proposition
until th. principle of unionism ■ is'
most .thoroughly admitted and established. This will Hot happen until managements . cease clamoring
about ihe irresponsibility of union,
nun, while the same 'managements
are demonstrating every day that
prevalent in corporate management
us it possibly could be in any kin.:l
of ornani/alioti, and the" organization
and thus succeeds in getting the property free, together with another fifty
thousand 'dollars, for which 'he gives
no equivalent. Or the Hyde ■ nature
induces the financier to invest certain
funds entrusted to his keeping in
wild cat schemes, where the risks are
so great that he would not dare to
invest his own money. If there are
profits thoy may reach 30 per cent, or
more, a bank interest is set aside for
the owner of the "money, and the remainder goes to the financier.
But occasionally it happens that a
finan-.ier holds two or more olliccs.
AsJekyll, lie may be. thc director of
a trn_c company or an insurance pom-
paiiy." As j.-l>de, he, maybe * engaged
in manufacturing or in speculative
land bining. Hyde needs money. He
■joes to .Tekyll, his other self, who
lends thi. trust inoitty without'"a "qniv-
er of self condemnation. Hyde speculates and loses, and .Tekyll charges
up the loss 'to unavoidable market
conditions. It i.s all very' delightful,
save for the people whose motley has
;ein given to the trust company for
safe keeping. And, also, it might go
0:1 forever, if it were not*for insurance commissions and iiiq.iiisit.iv<> lawyers.
Hon Geo.  IC. l-'oster says he saw no
ci-nllici of duly  in the fact that    he
Was manager of the Union Trust Company     and also member    of    a   land
syndicate.   And this in spile    of   the
fact as ag.nl of the syndicate he sold
property     to  the  trust    company ol
which  hi.:   was manager.      Here is a
case of dual    .personality where    ths
duly of Hyde to get a high price was
in .direct     conflict with thc   duly    of
.fekyll to give a low price.   Yet JMr.
Foster does "not sec any impropriety.
Again,  we have hinted that    sometimes   a   financier has  a   triple    personality.   What of th:  case of    Matthew Wilson,- K. ,C?   He, was a member of  a  speculative  syndicate  desiring     to sell'property to the    Union
Trust  Company,  aiid he,  with Chancellor Boyd, as legal' experts, formed
th*: inspection committee, which passed on all investments.   Stock    in    a
land company is  au  improper investment for trust funds.   Later,    at thc
instance of Mr. Stevenson, the   stock
ers that are so busv Irving* to induce
people not to do' what they as paper
directors make a business of doing—
that is, looking at one side of everything and ibeing as one-sided them-,
selves as the requirements if the business demands.
"You, gentlemen, are judges of the
high court of pailiament.      You    are
sworn  alld paid to act for the country, just as Sir Thomas Shaughn.ssy
is paid to act for the C. 1\ R., just
as  Mr.  1).  L).  Mann is   paid    to' act
ior   the   C. .V. 11.   If   ymi take gilts
from Sir Thomas SJiauglinessy or Mr.
Mann,  you     impair your  power    to
protect  the people  against the  , companies  which your  benefactors  represent.   You  put yourselves  iu  the- position of a judge on the bench    who
takes gifts     from  a  litigant    whose
case lie     will have to .decide."     The
foregoing is     the rebuke 11. 1,.   Uor-
dcii rdid   not     administer   to Foster,
Fowler,   l'opc  I.efurgcy,   et  al.,    and
which, in tlie opinion of th* Toronto'
Telegram, he should have done.

But Mr. Wiison approved the peopos-
cd investment, of thi Trust Companv'

It happened that the Trust'Company
will lose nothing by the transaction.'
That is nol the,, point. All the circumstances arc'improper. Trust funds

Mr. Amsden and Miss Davenport arc
well known to local theatre-goers,
and it was of them that the Ledger
said last '* December: "Miss Hazel
Davenport, as Hstielda," supplied the
bubbling, vivacity necessary to balance the drolleries of Claude Amsden,
and kept the audience in as good humor wilh her as slu evidently was with
herself, livery act, every note in her
part was rendered with a spirit ,tliat
was infectious., u '*'
Mr. Amsden, as Don Ivrico and El

as a comedian. He has a full voice,
though it was not at all times exactly true. .Perhaps it was because Iu
tried lo keep in tune wilh tlie piano
