From Tuesday's Daily News: ,
Grand Forks, Xov. 19.—An app.d-
ing crime was1 coiniiiittcd last night
at Niagara, U-n miles from here, on
tlw west side of the north fork of lhe
Kettle   river.
. An Italian laborer who has win
working on llie grade of thc Jv;';c!c
Valley Lines, broke into the powder
magazine, and for purposes of revenge, apparently, look two or three
cases of powder and secreted them in
.the Canadian Hotel, the license of
which was'owned-liy one Blanchettc,
the hotel lieing run liy,a man,named
King.   ■ ■    ,J     *
lietween t- 30 and to o'clock a terrific explosion ■ took place which
wrecked lhc building, setting lire "to
the debris and doing ghastly damage.
King.and his wife and an iS-year-old
daughter were standing together at
thc lime, of tlie explosion. Tlie girl
was literally blown to pieces. Mrs.
King, with thu .exception of severe
damage to thc hands, escaped. King,
himself, was seen shortly afterwards
running towards one of the contractors camps, half clothed.
Au Italian laborer who had ten
minutes before the tragedy been' put
to bed drunk, liy King, was badly
burned. Another Italian was brought
to thc hospital here by Dr. Dickson,
who was summoned to tiie scene and
arrived shortly after -midnight. The
injured man will hardly recover, as
he has five ribs fractured,'a bad fracture of tlie skull, and a lung puncture.
It is thought that the powder was
placed between the first and second
lloors, as most of the- injuries received were near tlie head. Nine other
people were more or less injured.
Home idea of tlie terrific force of
the explosion may be gathered' when
logs a foot and a half through "and
_o feet long were-* thrown one hundred
yards away from tlie wrecked huild:
iiigrt-Tli"cri^(l^miTav"ol~tIiF""girl were*
blown 'to an' adjoining 'building, which
-  Ihey set' on (ire.
Dr. Dickson states that on thc way
up he heard a horse pounding along
the grade towards the eity, and it is
believed that the criminal escaped
this way, though so far 110 trace has
been found.
Tlie building was a two storey and
a linlf log structure.
Dr.   Kingston, left this morning to
hold an inquest, and Constable Dins-
■ more lias been on the scene since last
night.
'Later)— The charred remains of the
King girl were brought hero this afternoon. The Italian, who was sleeping in the .building at the time of the
explosion and who was badly burned,
has turned up, and King, has, also ar-
. rived here very seriously unnerved by
" liis awful experience, although not
severely hurt physically., Constable
Dinsmoro has one man under arrest
ou suspicion. The inquest will prob-
ally open here tomorrow afternoon,

The Windsor Hotel at Uegina was
totally destroyed by fire early Monday  morning.

were badly injured and may yet die.
The two Musseter brothers and' Robert Johnson, were known to have
perished, and since il is learned lhat
a Mr. W. ...V. Uohinson, of Lakford,
Saskatchewan, was a guest at the
hotel, and has not since been seen.

Mr.  McLeod,   the  proprietor,  did  her-
,c,ic work in alarming  the people ' in
the house as soon as they discovered ,
the fire,  or otherwise the loss  of  life
would have been awful.
:Vs il was, no one got out of the
hou-w with any clothing lo speak of,
and the servant, girls, "who were on

their night clothing.
One. man, named Harry Jones,'

Donald Walker, who had done such'

jumped from a third storey window, ,
and is in so serious a condition that
little hope, of his recovery is entertained.

1    CO  HACK  TO  WOUK.
Lnsl Saturday night, between Cleveland tweive aiclock, Secretary liiffis.
of the loenl union received 11 message
from District I'r.esideul Shermuii
staling that the settlement arranged
by Mr.' Iturke wodld be reeogni/.ed by
the Iiileruniloiinl t'uioii, aiid instruct
ing him lo nrraiige' for lhe men to
return to work,
Ou Sund.iv  Jlr.   Ilussey received    1. .lows
limes lielow. Fireiiinn ltyaii crawleil
up the post from which the- wires
went inlo the building, and called,to
the man' to crawl across lo safety
ion the post. Mr. Wahurst lay flat-
on the. wires and crawled across the
width of the sidewalk, until lie was
within reach ol the fireman. Kyan ,
caught him and landed him safely on
the post, and they both descended to
'the ground,
Unfortunately au accident lo one
of the pumps at the power house
caused the waler to give out, nnd
where the firemen had at first been
able lo throw a stream to the roof
of the building, they were unable to
reach higher than the second floor
'.when  they needed the pressure.
When it was seen tlmt the pump.,
were not to render much assistance,
alio big steamer was brought out and
placed at the police station tank to
pump. Hose wns laid, but owning to
llhi'it in the tower of lhe hall not be-
|ing in just the best shape, the stream
from the steamer was for some thins
weak. Later, however, a good pressure was developed, but lhe main
portions of the building hnd already
been burned and the playing of fur-
It her water seemed but 11 waste.

THE FERNIE TIEAJP
The widespread effect of the com
plications existing al Fc*niic between
the'Crow's Xest Coal Company and
its operatives is perhaps the only excuse an outsider can have for attempting a discussion of the situation. The varying and contradictory
reports which have been given publicity but lend additional di ilieni ly lo a
proper discussion of the* affair. It be-*
gins to appear, however, lhat the issue between lhe' warring parties has
resolved its.'lf into a^question of the
closed shop and nothing more, and
that while the miners are determined
to force-the closed shop on the companv, the company'in turn is resolved  to forestall   that result.
While tliere 111 ay be important considerations involved in an issue of
this sort that arc fully understood by
thc contending parties, it is dillicull*
for an outsider to appreciate the
gravity of such an issue or the necessity for , its being carried to the-
length of stopping thc mining and
smelting industries 'of llie whole
province as well* as inflicting untold
inconvenience and' hardship on an entirely innocent   public.
The fuel famine which has ceased
to threaten and which has become a
realitv, is causing incalculable loss
to' many private individuals as well
as lo mining companies and other industries dependent upon a. full and
icgular supply of fuel for. their prosecution. Thus,,1116 evils of monopoly,
and thc uncertainty of human passions have combined lo throw the
whole counirv into a slate of suspense  and  privation.
The situation i.s the strongest   possible argument  in  favor of  the enactment   of      a   compulsory   arbitration
Jaw,   if  not,* indeed,  the  public  operation of coal      mining industries    by
means of which  the needs of  the people   -and- demands ' of      the industries
Jii-iy  be  supplied.   Thc willingness  of
the> coal company to arbitrate on one
question, and of the union bosses upon  another,  while  they  fail   lo- agree
"upon "lire-inTlTcT-"wiricir^ii'irilH)e"irn""i~
trated.  shows   that  neither  parly    i.s
sincere";     and lhat. a-merely factional
fight is well  pleasing  to both    sides.
It   i.s  to   be  a   test  of  strength   . between organized capital on one    side
and organized labor     on  lhe    other,
with no doubt at all as to which will
win  in . lhe' end.   The  operations    of
the C. X. 1'. Coal Company have been
carried     on  from  lhe  first    with    a
■ .shrewd eye lo 'maintaining   command
of the whole situation, and .whatever
the     rights r,[ labor, may be in  the
question, it is as useless for the'miners to hope to will as it ,bas   been in
every other     case where     conditions
have been lhe .same.      The   company,
can evict them, and   be   well within
its rights under     the  lnw,  whatever
may he the moral aspects of-the case.
Kvcii in the present day, when labor
locks  horns  with   unlimited    capital
und dogged persistence, there is little
chance for    any gain by the   toiling
classes.
On thc other hand, the evidences
show all loo plainly that the men
are not themselves ;i unit in ihcir
opinions, and nothing more quickly
alienates the sympathy oi the public
than the spectacle of a union or aggregation oi men tit war among themselves. It shows thai there i.s something rotten fn the stnte of Uen-
tnark, and the outraged feelings of
the public will unfortunately be turned ngailist those who most need sympathy from thai quarter.
It might not be unwise for the next
session of the legislative assembly to
puss such legislation as would enable
the government to break such dead
locks either by compulsory arbitration, as In New /.eulnnd, or by the
opening of such collieries under,gov.

Had the Canadian looked a little
cks.r into the controversy, it would
have discovered that the above is a
correct slaUnuni  of  the case.
Th. Canadian is only repeating
what the Ledger has said before when
it stales that the situation only actuates the d.-mand for some kind
<.f compulsory arbitration-, but while
parties to these disputes show such
a- decided repugnance to entering into
vrlunlary arbitration, how is compulsory arbitration to be brought
about? ,
As the Ledger has staled before, the,
road to compulsory arbitration leads
through the admission of.the principle of unionism to the fullest extent, and that the present - struggle
is being waged to annihilate, tliat
principle as far as possible as ap?
plied to one side and lo strengthen
it, the "closed shop principle, and perpetuate it as far and as completely
as possible, by the same party as to
iis side, does not indicate that at
least one side of thc dispute is nudy
to accept compulsory  arbitration  np-
slatioa for every parcel that'comes to
them.

THAT DISCOVERY.
The  discovery  that  President  Cock-
burn      netted    a    personal'   profit  of
S-1,239-50     through     purchasing     two
blocks of     Ontario Bank shares,  and
reselling the stock to lhe bank,    was
the somewhat  startling  disclosure  of
the ■ proce.dings  in   the  enquiry ' into
the   charges   against   Manager McGill.
lion.  A.  B. -Murine was the central
figure  of   the    day,   coming   for     tbe
,;',rsL lima into prominence in the role
nf inquisitor.   As, an associate of Mr.
Iticknell    in  the process of exami-iing
'.he books,   and  preparing  the  special
.xhibiiij,  Mr.  Morine     had heretofore
remained  in'the background.   But   it
-.vas different for the space of 20 min-
'ilcs -or   thereabouts   yesterday. Arm-
.d with  some significant facts glean-
:el from the bank's head ollice ledger,'
1\is   incisive,   clear-cut   interrogations
wrought     speedy    confirmation      and
more besides.
In November of 1900, and again in
May of the following year, the Ontario Bank issued, a new allotment of
stock in thc ratio of one share of new
to three of thc old. President Cock-
burn bought, of these shares, so talso
did Director A. S- Irving. Mr. Cock-
ii.iini7.s total pin-chases werc__7S.

Commissioner' Green's refusal to sell
Babine Lake lands' to the Dominion
government is accepted as a reversal
eif the policy when Kaien Island was
sold to Anderson, Bodwcll &■ Co.
The Commissioner says he has uo
power under the land act to sell larg-^
or blocks „than 160 acres to any one
person. Local politicians claim,that
their contention in tlie house lasl session that thc Kaien Island sale was
illegal and the land must revert to
.he province,- is confirmed by .the
Commissioner's answer to the Dominion, and serious complications at
Prince Rupert is anticipated.
From the above il would seem lhat
■ he Commissioner 'of Lauds and
Works is as ■ unsuccessful in getting
letter terms from the Dominion as is-
Premier IdcBride. To get, good terms
t seems best to deal through private
iartie-s  or  railioad  companies'. ■''- * No

,an;;lon  testified,  no  cash  was  paid,
.icithcr was tliere any security given.
nste.id, the de:il was conveniently en-
in:er.*d  through halving  a call    loan
mt through the Younge, street branch
■f the bank.   Nor was the    president
-.llled upon to pay any interest;  thc
ividends on  the stock,  it   ,was    ar-

?.Ir.   Cockburii  retained     his    hold-
ngs  till  11)0,1,.   Meanwhile  tliey    had
'pprecinlcd   in   value.   In   March     of
hat year he unloaded,  not    011    the
ublie,  but  on*     the    institution    ot
,hicli he was the head,  getting  X^i,%
ir half his stock and a point higher
fir the other block,   lie received $37,-

Mr. Lmigtoii assented lo the sug-
(Sticn or Mr. Mf'irine that the presi-
'eni "ran no risk whatever," as the
Ulcers' guarantee Innd would have^
'ie said, made up any loss through
li'preci.'ilion in the stock, The mag-
■ilrate professed himself unable to
ee the situation in this light.
Among the other incidents, of the
lay's enquiry was the statement of
Mr. Lnngton lhat the head ollice of
tie bank had never been inspected
vhile' he wns wilh the bank, nnd thnt
lie report of the annual meeting of

STAlt.VED   BY   ANAEMIA.
Ileal ih Restored by* thc Rich    Blood
Dr. Williams' l'ink I'ills Actually
Make.
I
Thousands and thousands of young
,irls throughout Canada are literally
passing into hopeless decline for the
want of the new, rich red blood so
ibuudii'itly supplied by Dr. Williams'
l'ink I'ills. They arc distressingly
.vcak, pale or sallow, appetite fickle,
•ubjecl to headaches,' dizziness; are
breathless nnd the heart palpitates
,'ioleutlv i'i the least exertion, The,
doctors call thi." anaemia—-which is
the medical name for bloodnessness,
Ur, Williams* l'ink I'ills actually
make new blood—they cure anaemia
inst n« surely us food cures hunger,
Here is a I,*it of the strongest kind
ol evidence: "Dr. Williams' l'ink
I'ills, uud nothing else, saved my
two dniightcrs when doctors had tail-
,d lo help thein," This slati'inent is
made by Mrs, Joseph Muriel, St.
Oliver ritreet, Quebec, She adds:
'■My daughters ure itgcd, respectively, twenty*lwo nud twenty-three
years, Kor two years they snllvi'cil
.rum the weakness nud distress of
iiinemin, nud had I learned of Dr.
Williams' l'ink I'ills earlier, it would
uoi only have saved mc money, { hut
much worry nnd nnxiety ns writ.
Both girls were us pule ns a siliwt.
Tluy Millercd from hendnches, *ji*ior
appetite, alld grew so feeble Unit they
could lin idly go about, Tliey were
uiuler a doctor's cure, but did not
improve a bit, I dispnired of ever
seeing thnn iu -"ond health ngniti,
when a fiiend culled my attention to
Ur. Williams' l'ink 1'ilis. Soon after
they bif-uii the I'ills there was nu
improvement iu their condition,   and
11 less tlinu a couple ol months they
were ngnin enjoying good henlth, nc-

AN vOkD   FARCE*
An  Old  Pf ay Under a New Name—Cox and  Box
a    -    Comes to Life under a New Role.
To lhe Ledger Kid:
Dear 'Kid,-—I came across"* thc
fol
lowing note in the editorial note column of the' Toronto Glohe the other
daysaud am greatly perplexed by it.
Could you explain lhat matter tOoine
co'.that'I can understand just* how
such; things, work? I am a' director
in two. companies,, and I don't' want
to lc subject to the possibility of
having -to" sue    myself.   It" would
double mc, up, so     that I could    not
4    , - - *'
sleep nights.  „
Hoping .you can relieve mc, I am
truly yours, .
IJOUUTFU'lLY  _)OUBLE.
The,general' public of Canada would
be greatly pleased to learn that' a
modus' vivcndi' had been arrived at
by. the Dominion Coal Company and
the   Dominion   Iron and  Steel Com-
t'
paiiy. ■■.. There must be some better
way than litigation of settling the
dispute between these two great corporations, which have several directors in.common, A small committee
"of experts might, after, a careful investigation,, make some useful suggestions looking to a'-reasonable set--
tltmcnt.      ,' ,   ■ -'
. Dear Mr. Double,—You* have given
the Kid a poser which reminds him
oi un-old farce play entitled Cox and,
Box, iu which Cox and Box got into
nn awful tangle with' their " landlady
over the room ithcy occupied.-*
' This "enterprising landlady had rented a'room,,, to a printer who worked
'nights,'and who consequently occupied the room only by day.
"'--Another man, a tailor, who worked
during "the day, had-the pleasure , of
occupying the room' at" night while
.the"printer was busy, sticking type.
But the landlady came to grief-,in a
little while',- just as-.those two   companies-have .done down  east.
It seems that Box, .who is a direct
or .iii both those companies, has riiii
into himself anil is haying trouble
trying to explain to ' thp shareholders
how it is possible to represent both
sides to a controversy and sue, hi 111-
s.lf, swear himself to be both right
and wrong, and comei - out of, the
tangle with his own private interests
in both companies intact and the interests of all the shareholders properly protected.
It- sec-nis lii the Kid that this Cox-
and Box kind of double, directing
sham is about as much of.a farce as
was the old <; Cox andtBox, rooming
house farce he enjoyed so much years
ago.    , .-        -.       "',-',''
Box can swear as director . of the
coal company he is being juggled by
Box as director, to the steel,1 com-'
pany, and can ask*the court lo protect'himself from himself because,;he
is sure that he is ' trying to cheat
himself.,       ' '
Then the judge will have- lo,'decide
whether Box is really honest when he
swears that he is not honest; -V r ■,--
The judge might, in such a case go
far enough into the tangle to-find, out'
how much Box is interested in the
coal company and how, much in the
steel company, and such information
might bring to his niiiul.thc wisdom
of Solomon, and he might, by .hold--
ing Box up by the heels' and' threatening to cut him in two with thc
sword of justice, making two real'directors out of him, get at the root of
the evil. ,    .
The Kid wishes to assure Mr.
Double he has nothing lo fear from
being a,director in two companies!so_
long as it i.s possible to use himself
in his double capacity so as to protect'his own, interests.
It's the shareholder who will have
to look after his'pockctbook,
Go to sleep, dear Double, you are
doubly secure. =-. "

The;Herald editor never accepted a
cent for his'vote or, his, influence.
, Good for that editor. The price of
editor:-' votes and influence should always be kept above the'cent bell.
Eviction* of tenants may be' all
right-for unpaid rent, tind the preservation of forests wise, but when a
great corporation like the ' Crow's
Nest Pass Coal Co. takes advantage
cf trouble in their works to evict
their workmen and, neither, supplies
co.il nor lets people have, wood, capital makes a more severe commentary on itself than its worst enemies

"We have had a great deal of maligning ^ of "corporations recently by
irresponsible persons, who- fail, to
grasp the reasons which have actuated the fnen who have financed many
combinations that have done "great
good. To my mind* the correct definition of a corporation is an association of., individuals who contribute
from their private means to & common fund so thai a fixed and authentic capital and further a liornwing
credit may be established, suilicient to*,
carry on in a larger way than an individual or a limited or general part-
ncrslijp could carry on*, the purpose
for which business men become . as-
socvatcd.. The railrould corporations
of today nrc the result of evolution
and not of discovery. Starting, ih ns
we did many years ago, with small
and insignificant equipment, and
scope; our railroad j.systems -have so
developed*that' they'are* now the pride''
of the entire world, and. they,'are -a
decided tribute to private enterprise.
Private-,capital has conceived*and;"de-V
veloped them, and * loyal workers
have pushed them forward until today life, is much safer in a railroad
train, than on the public highways'."'
Mr., 'futile then described .railway
advancement in- detail, reviewing the
early forms of equipment and ,construction .and_'contrasting -it..with tlie
present style.
Mr. Tutlle's statement that private
capital- has* conceived" and''develbped-
thc railroads of tlie'.United. States is
correct,-with lhc qualification that if
he were to eliminate the,water which
has been added to that capital, which
is stated by,competent authority to
amount to " half the present' "capitalization, and then deduct the public
capital which has been put into these
enterprises in the" shape "ofJ*land

The World is right iu its contention.
that there is n tendency,, to too much
law making, , ,   >
' A law preventing -the holding ol
more than cue dircctorstliip ""-by one
juan would render unnecessary a great
deal of legislation already ou the
slatul'! books niul siwplily many olh-
irs, besides making tbe adoption ol
.ndless chains of law designed only
lo prevint whnt that double director-
ale legislation now in force'permits
lo be done when il -makes from,-two
to twenty difVinenl legal persons mil
of one iwHvitlunl, so Hint he can
mnkc fronv one to twenty transactions with* his real self to, the disadvantage of those whose -money her is
supposed to direct solely for their
benefit.
How convenient it, was for President Cockbiirii' to use his bank's funds
lo buy stock for himself, and when
thnrc nppearcd to be a good margin
to sell llml-numi stock back to his
hank and icccivc his 54,53..50 profit,
Thul transaction is uot one whit
worse in principle than nrt transactions Involving millions of money
ihut go on nil .ho tinic nil over the
country simply by tlie method of the
double (iircrtiiig of other people's
money.

FREEDOM OF THE OPEN «al a"'1 organized,  is given   full rein
SHOP.
Tne falsity eif llie claim that the
open shop menus liberty' and independence is illustrated by the following examples;
I11 Indianapolis one t of llie most
promiiKiil advocates of llie open
shop employs three boys to every
man. .The wages of the in en are given as $6.50 a week. That's open
shop. Where is the independence al,
th.il price?
In a hat factory in Philadelphia
union meii were gradually discharged
and boys hired. Now Soo ,lioys make
from $2 to S5 'a week. When a boy
I'.ccoiii'.'s proficient and demands fair
wages, he doesn't gel them. lie is at
liberty to go.   Thai's open shop. .
A coremaker in Detroit was ' paid
, S12 a week. He had his daughter,, assisting him. Soon she learned how
to make cores. Then he was dis-
clurgi'd. The girl was given liis
place al $4 a week, lie became free
to seek another job' That's open
. .shop.
In a union pressroom in Chicago a
iioii-uiiioiiisl was put at work. .Then
a second, a third and a fourth. "The
union men cpiil, They didn't wish lo
wait until they were discharged. The
intention to get rid of them was very
plain.' That's open shop.
In the government printing office
at Washington fifty-six refused to
pay the assessment for the,eight-hour
straggle. Hy doing so ihey broke a
suitinn pledge of honor. That comes
from Ilr. open shop." It encourages
dishonor aud 'makes men contemptible.
An employer iu Milwaukee said; "I
don't know what we arc going to do.
We can not get enough young help.
, The competition is so sharp we must
employ childiin, who do not demand
big wages."   More open- shop.
The tobacco trust employs over 16-
'■   000  children .   at  an  average of less
than 35 cents a day...     Tlte work injures  their health.   Again open  shop.
Iu'Milwaukee .a boy 14 years old
worked as high as fourteen hours a
day for Si.50 a week. His employer
was fined Sio. and costs. liberty lo
hire whom lie pleased anil lo work
them as many hours as he chose was
•    t fins     denied     the    employer. lie
should  have  had  an  open-shop  judge'
to decide the case.
Imagine, a Methodisl bishop assigning clergymen of other "denominations
to Methodist churches.    Then  refusing
to  listi'ii   to  any  objections. '
would  l:o  open  shop.
' Ought  the .ITniled   Slates  to
Thai.
allow
rill  foreigners to dwell  here    wiThouT
paying taxes or being subject lo   its
laws?   That would be open shop, with
its  freedom   and   independence.     n ■
The anthracite miners had" open
.shop uiuler the most favorable conditions possible. Many of the iiiem-
her.s of the-union saw no reason to
continue to pay dues. The organization dwindled rapidly. When llie'tiine
came to make another agreement the
union had no real strength. The open
sho]) is ileal') ro labor's power. ll
makes men inio cringing slaves.0
The gariuuit workers of Chicago
had the open shop forced upon them
two years ago, Sweat shops have iu-
cre.fscd enormously* in conseipK'.ice.'
Wages have fallen very low. Trousers
are made for 13 cents a pair, and
only six pairs a week ran be made
nl the uiost by the one doing the
work. One woman who sews trousers
is nble lo make i),..cents a week. Another gets n cent apiece for linder-
vists and does about fifteen a day. A
crippled man and his wife finish coats
for a cent apiece. Ileiug slow work-
eisi each can only make about '23
cent** a week, 'Where the clothing is
made sanitary conditions nie so awful llml contagious diseases (ire likely
to.l.e in every garment coming from
there. All who buy clothing or
mingle with others nre thus endangered. The Jives of such toilers must
l.e short, and -miserable, Where is the
Independence niid freedom or the open
■-.hop?
.'illy thousand iliildn.n work l,i the
textile mills nf llio south, The aver*
ngr life of the child after il enters
tlie mill is four .years, Tlml's open
nhop nud yawning graves, Hoes liberty mean license to coinuiii 11r.1v-
tier?
The tyranny of greed, both indivld-
by the open shop. Misery, degradation,' crime and death are its inevitable outcome. Therefore, organized
labor opposes it. Therefore, also, the
Methodisl Episcopal church aud all
oilier., who sanction it. must be classed as enemies.
Who so aids by word or action the
bringing about of such awful results
as follow the open, shop is a criminal
before the bar of morality and lustice.—Alexander Spencer in Typographical  Journal.

A mother's work and worry in caring for her little ones is greatly
lightened if she has on hand a safe
remedy for thc cure af indigestion,
colic, sour stomach, constipation,
diarrhoea, simple fevers and the other little ailments that are apt to
come to children suddenly. For these
troubles H.Vhy's Own Tablets are better than any other medicine. They
are mildly laxative, prompt in their
action, and a few doses usually
leaves the child ■ in perfect health.
They do nol contain an atom of opiate or poisonous'soothing stulT. They
always do good—they .cannot possibly do harm, aud may be given with
equal safety to the new born infant
i.r well grown child, , Mrs. Reginald
James, I'Vnaghvale, Out,, says!*- "I
have used Baby's Own Tablets and
find them unexcelled as a medicine
for children. They promote sleep and

New York, Nov. 19.—William Randolph Hearst, who is 0 now en route
to Monterey, California, in discussing
his future course in reference to politics in New York, said:

"ami support the 'principles of reform
which I have always stood for,' but
these principles nre' now sulliciently
understood by the general public for
- it to be no longer necessary for me
to be a candidate. You probably
know it is by no means pleasant lo
he a candidate. I am glad iu the
future it is to be my rprivilege to
stand for the principles of government which I "have always advocated, without being a candidate for ofiice, and on that account attacked
with bitterness,"*
