A woman giving her name as Julia
Tuckk-y, about 4S years of'age, artiv- 1
ud in town last Thursday or Friday,
lind put up first at llie Ouecn:s Hotel. On Tuesday a. young num about
24 years old, a son of Mrs. Titckl.-y,
arrived in town and put up at the
Fernie, luu changed to the King Kd-
ward Hotel.
On Wednesday evening, acting upon
instructions from the cliief of police
of lhc city of Spokane, Constable
Duthie, of this city, placed the woman under arrest . and is holding * her,
-.-ending; the -arrival of the Spoka.no
According lo information received'
by our city plicc, Mrs.' Tuckley will
l.e charged _}villi grand larceny, as*, it
is reported -that she absconded    from
0. 1,.   lloyuton,   malinger of the IClk
"(timber Company,      relumed  a     few

V, IX. Lynch,' secretary of the company, y .
They closed a deal wilh Supt. Kil-
patrick, of the C. 1'. li„ Revelstoke,
and Messrs. Houston,' Woolsey. and',
MeArter, of the same place, for .**,-
..on acres of t"iiiil*".r on' Cherry Creek,
a branch of tlie Spalmnaclieen river.
Tlie estimate pf ..limber on this tract
i.s 1,000,000,006 "feet, consisting, ot
c.dar,. hemlock, white pine, fir and
spruce.     '.' t
This timber is' tributary to llina
lake at Sicamous, on the ..main line
of the C. 1'. li., al '' which point a
mill will probably be erected to manufacture this vast bodj*. of timber for,
the market,
To bo aide lo' make two such deals-
•is this coal deal up the Klk, and the
Cherry  creek limber ' purchase all    iu
S.V'.oo    which belonged      to   someone
else. -     ■
, It is said the.woman had promised'
to marry an old gentleman who had
more years „ and money than good
judgment, aud he growing confident,
and confiding, told her that he , was
carrying three thousand dollars
around in his pocket, aud tliat in colli
5 sequence he was afraid to travel' the
streets like a.portable bank.
'She proposed to lake over the cash
, for safe keeping, and has kept it "very
piafely ever since; so safely that he
has been pining for a sight of it once
more, and this explains the entrance
of the. police upon   the scene.
Our city police* found -j*2,3i8 in her
possession. The Spokane authorities
\vill have a representative upon the
^scene tomorrow, and the case will
likely come up before Judge Wilson
oh' Saturday, and if sufficient evidence ■ is- produced the woman will
rrobably be extradited for . trial on
the charge of grand larceny in Spo*

The discovery is in the same locality as the P. linriis anthracite, beds,
and directly on the proposed line of
the Fording River \l. R., whose charter was issued last spring lo build
from Michel to Okotoks. The discovery was made hy Wilson P.ros., of
Okotoks, and the tests have been conducted by one of the most competent

Many Fernieites Interested in the Transfer—W. R.
Ross and S. F. Wallace at St. Paul  r
Wallace, of the Hotel Fernie, arrived
in town .Tuesday wreathed in bright,
expansive .smiles aud carrying in their
pockets the tangible evidences of a
mcsl important transaction, which,
under the • supervision of Mr. llpss,
has. beLli "consuinated, whereby the
conl lands in the Upper IClk Valley,
known as the property of the IClk
Valley Coal Company, has lieen transferred to Mr. 0. A. Robertson, uf St.
Paul, and Mr. F. IC. Keiiasloli, of
Minneapolis. 'Negotiations have .lieelii
pending for some lime, and the Iinal
deal was concluded in, .St. Paul last
week. Tlie price paid for the . properly has. not been made public, but it
is understood that a substantial*' payment 1:1 cash and itn allotment' ofi
stock in the companv, which is lo 'be
formed, was the consideration for
which lhe property was transferred.
„Kveryhody in town will be glad to
know that the people who have'spent
s:> much time and money iu gelling
this property together and holding it
have at- last been rewarded in a most
satisfactory manner.
In round numbers there arc 30,000
acres, embraced in this purchase, and
from a blue print of the survey made
by thc agents of the'"-'purchasers, a
Ledger reporter gleans the following
most flattering details of the coal
beds in the territory so far examined.'
In a section i,iSS feet in thickness,
llu're have been uncovered and measured 25 scams of coal varying in
thickness from one foot'to 30 feel. Of
ihesc 25 seams only 7 are less than 3
fc:t in thickness,, and  the total lliiek-
1 .
licss of workable coal i.s 175 feel. The
whole °c-f the 30,000 acres has not yet
l.cdi thoroughly explored and enough
is known to warrant I'll, assertion
ilr-it it is   unsurpassed  in   the Valley

bank account as- lite ledger has to
its credit.

and feels satisfied with  the  result   of   so  far  as quantity is  concerned,   and
his work. ; ._ _ j the quality is the same as that-being
W.R.Ross,   M. P. P.,   and  SA   F., can continent.   This .property, ,, in ' the
hands of these people, who are iu a,
position to finance and operate iv in'
the most advantageous way, will soon
JL* developed into one' of the greatest
coal-pr.-duciiig    propositions    in     the
world. • v  ]
Steps have already been taken looking, to the building of a railroad to
llie Livingstone range property, ahd
the C. P. R. holding, as Undoes, a
large area of coal lands near the
areas just li^ins.Vi-ivd lo * thv owners
of th. Livingstone property, will
prbl.ahly build--1 a line of railway up
lhe IClk valley lo these properties,
and which will have for its ultimate
destination a connection with ' the
main line east of the Rocky mountains. Such a line would -parallel
over 5S miles of this extensive coal
bed, and eventually lie one* 'of ' the
great coal hauling roads of the country*
A branch line from the Crow's Nest
line east of Frank paralleling the
Livingstone coal beds and joining .the

Owing to Certain

night. The hall was well ifilled and '
much interest' was manifested in |the
report of the delegates who' went to
Minneapolis to confer with President
John Mitchell regarding the settlement arrived at between Thos. Hurk«
and Manager   Lindsey.
From this report it was learned
that President Mitchell did not agree
with Mr. Hurke's seltlenuent. Ho
could not uidor.se it ns meeting Hho
wishes of tne men or iu its ailure to
protect  their  interests.
The fact that discontent' tiinong the
men at Michel had been .stirred up, '"
and in consequence of which they had
gone back to work,'"made it a matter
of policy to accept the situation as
it had be.u created by ' the ill-advised action of Mr. Hurke, and advise
the men to go back, k
District President Sherman, after
conferring with President Mitchell,
who lefl the final action in his hands,
wired Secretary Biggs to ' arrange for
the men to return to work. As soott
is Mr. Sherman returns from Indianapolis, he will lay before thc locals
of District ]S President Mitchell's explanation of the action taken, so that
responsibility for the settlement as
arrived at will be properly placed
where it belongs.

strong present-day lessons from the
story of ".Inlamn, the bribed young

The New York)Outlook, wliicli has
gained for itself a reputation for
fairness and independence in its treat,
ment of public questions has not added to. thai reputation liy its article
upon the insurance question and its
advocacy of the elections of the administration ticket of trustees fur the
New York Life Company.
In  its  issue  of  the   ioth  inst.,    it.
has au' editorial upon the subject and
publishes   three  letters   from     corres-
. pondents who do not agree with  the
Outlook's. position.
The  Outlook,   after  stating  lhat  il
is not  its object to advocate  the elcc-
■ tioii nf 'any ticket,  winds up a    very
lame answer to its correspondents, as
follows: ,
Under, these circumstances, the Outlook advises the policy-holder in the
New York Life Insurance Company to
entrust liis properly to the reform
administrator of the administration
ticket. lie can be Mire that his property will be safe in .their hands. lie
cannot have the same assurance in
intrusting it to au untried and unknown administration."
This is a significant way of not ad-
'voijating  any.ticket.
To say that Richard Olney and
those associated with lii-m are mi-
known, is another exhibition of unfairness llial looks very much out of
place in an editorial in the Outlook.
One of the Outlook correspondents,
among other things, makes this very
ptrtineul  statement:
'.'Ycm publish the report' lhat Mr.
T..W. Lawson "is back of the co-called International Policy Holders'
Cqmmitcec," and express the opinion
that he would prove an unsafe trustee.' If we admit for sake of argument lhat he "is more unsafe than
the McCurdy and Depew type, we
still are' left in the dark* as to how-
we are' putting" him iu control by-
electing a board, of thirty-six eminent men who may fairly be presumed
*    to 'do iheir own  thinking and not be
'This '  correspondent
the piling iip of large sums of. peo-.
lie's earnings "in the hands of a few
men, to be -used - ostensibly -for - the
benefit 01 tht --.topic who contribute
il, but,in reality-to "lie used by that
greatest of Modern evils, the captain
of finance, to further his own interests, after which, if there is anything
left, cf his money's earnings, thc own-,
er may die with the assurance that
his lii-its may get a sum not quite
equal to what they would have got
through the savings bank method.   *
Tlu- foundation of the power of the
modern master of finance is 'the hard-
earned money of lhc common people
ol the- couulrv whicli has been iis-
vciglcd out-of their pockets by rosy-
linlcd'pietui-cs of participating profits
ivhish lade away in the light of experience like the fading of the lints
of the rainbow when the shower
ec-.is-.s to fall.
Thc financier who devised the investment frills with which to. adorn
straight life insurance, laid the foun-
dalU.n upon which .to build his own
fiuiiuciiil future up to the billion
mark, and as surely laid a trap for
lho man who has little money,' and
haiud it with that most potent of
inducements, the protection of his.
(hpciidiiii family.
Whenever a man i.s led away from
straight life insurance oil the simplest plan, he is being robbed • of at
least ti portion of the earning power
of his money, and somebody else g*ts-
the* revenue.
Divested of commissions und cxor-l
bitaiil management charges, the cost
of straight life insurance would .be
less than half of what it now i.s, and
the common people .would be so much
richer,  mid      ihe financial    magnate*
tue'nt wis paid to Premier McBride
personally, and we are sure the .'rank
fcxpressiqV of .that, confidence, exhibited by ths u-.-ittrs' representatives at
Fernie will be very gratifying to'Mr.

The Canadian must he hard," press.J
to find entries for the credit side' of
the provincial ' government ledger
when it, has to take up a-column of
its editorial-space in an endeavor to
show that Premier McBride' is entitled to the credit of settling the strike
here. -
The simple truth of the matter    is
this:     Mr.  Lindsey,    in making    his
counter   proposition     to submit   the
check-off  clause  as  it  stands,    with-
out  reference   to   tiny  statements'of.
lacts leading up     to the,writing   of
that      now   famous  order,   excepting
such  statements   as  he  himself    proposed,     should    be submitted     to a
superior court judge  for his  decision
as to its legality, brought from Mr.
Burke   the      second      proposition, in
whicli he agreed to submit the matter
to the Premier of the province,   who
was mentioned, uol for political'rcas-
cus, but because he, the Premier,    is
lhe Minister of Mines of.the province
and as such was deemed the   orop-'r
person to deal with thc suJ-ject.
Thus* it will be seen that neither
political or pcisoiial reasons, inured
into thc scle.'„. >n of the Hon. Mr.
McBride by Mr'  Burke,
But aside   from this,   the    Premier
^doubtless feels,  as he should,  .hat he

Comstock, by name, gives the Outlook this rather rough blow in closing:/
"I notice that the Mutual Life,-arc
large buyers of advertising space ir.
the Outlook, and the question naturally arises as to whether you may
not, consequently be prejudiced ' in
favor of the company—your advertising client—as against the policy-holders' whose inteu-sls would seem clearly to point to a complete 'radical'
change of the company's management
at this opportune lime,"
' Mr. Albert ft, Bard, another of tin
correspondents on tliis insurance issue,1 makes sonic telling arguments
which the Outlook overlooks entirely'
i,n its .limping, halting, answer,
Mr. Bard states thai it is much
more important to the policyholders to demonstrate the mutual ity
of the companies than to elect any
particular ticket."1
. "Furihcriiiori', one point of thi*-
election is to prove what the policyholders CAN do. If the policy-hold
ers succeed now, coining adininistra*
'lions will make representative nom-
itiutions; if the policy-holders fail,

The rea*uni the Outlook did not audi Halt to iinswtr  Mr.   Bard's   Utter
.   ia apparent.   It Could uot do so and
justify   its  advocacy of  the  udmiuiv
u.ition ticket.

The amount of money piled up in
the hands of the captains of finance
through the investment feature of life
insurance is Die lever by which those
captains retain control ol legislation,
and of the industrial' and financial
affairs of the country.
Xo wonder that such tremenduous
efforts arc being put .forth to prevent a complete exposure of this system by the election of an entire new
set of trustees composed of what the
Outlook so naively calls unknown
men, like ex-secretary of state 01-
ne-y, Mr. Long worth, and others ol
the same character.
The "Outlook  says   the  administration  ticket  is composed- of  the    best
of the   old   trustees,   and' some    new
men.   In  ihis 'case  the  policy-holders
cannot  -  be  blamed  if   they  conclude-.

to fill the bill and succeed in turning

policy-holders succeed  iii  electing  tlit •

there will be a big shuffling in insurance circles,  and  the insurance, com-
iiiuks  (if Canada will  have to    submit to sonic more  impertinent qucs-'

with the rc-il settlement would be

As to lhc 'lark, political plots
hinted at, there is no doubt that
some very clumsy attempts at steering things have been made, so clumsy
indeed that they have already defeated their object and paved thc way
for some surprises in the political
developments  of  thc  near  future,

Now that the Kernie coal strike is,

When a proposal to submit thc dispute to arbitration wns made, il will

Helpless jind Bent.With Rheumatism
—Cured    by   ,Dr.  Williams'    Pink
"I was a helpless* cripple.     I   was
bent iii form and could not straighten up.   Crull'crs were my only means
of moving about,   I tried many medicines, but they all failed until I l-c-
'gah using Ur.  Willialns'  Pink  Pills—
they cured  me."   George Schwab,  of
Short Ileach, ,N. S., made the   above,
almost startling  statement  to  a   reporter a few days ago.   Mr.  Schwab
is now a well built man, strong and
broad shouldered,   I,ikc  thousands of
other Jfov'a Scotians, he is a fisherman, and is consequently exposed   to
all kinds of weather, just the conditions to set the rheumatic poison in
the blood at wprk,   Mr.' Schwab adds:
'iit  is    impossible to overrate    lhc
severity  of   the  attack,   Thc, trouble
was located in niy back    and    right
hip.   I hud to ('lift work, nud    was
mostly  indoors,   There  was   n  time
when I never expected to slitnd erect,
again, but Dr, Williams'  Pink   Pills
straightened me up again, not    only
that, but they made mc thc   strong,
hearty man you see mc today,   I can
never describe the awful pain I   suffered before I used these pills,       1
tried many medicine nnd had treatment from,several doctors, but lo 110
avail,   My legs became so stiff   that
iu order lo move ut all I had to use
crutches.   Fitinlly   the  doctors  decided that 1 was incurable, ami told mc
they could render no further   assistance,   I continued to sillier   day   and
night,   nnd    then came the   turning
point of my lift,     A friend   from   a
[distance came to sec mc, audit was
from hiin I learned     that Ilr,    William*;' Pink I'ills were a great   cure
for tlnutiiiilisiii,  'At niicc  I' got    a
supply uiul began to use llinii.'   The
Indication tlmt they were helping mc
war. when the pain grew less   severe,
lu a lew weeks more the swelling   in
my legs    nil hips began    to   leave,
then iny joups seemed lo loosen   tip,
and ilttii it wait nol long until   in-'
crutches    wcte thrown aside ami    I
could itraighti-n up.  Then  I    began
tn en nnt nonm niul vnon wim able
in resume mv work ns well ns ever.
Since that tim. 1 lmve never been
troubled with rheumatism or lame
back, I can tell you my neighbors
wire nil astonished ut my cure; tliey

,   I  have been  reading in  the papers
of late* of "better - terms," and have
Lccotne. greatly;'confused as to just
what"* r that term of "better terms"
really- means.- I see -by some papers
that -."/better terms" should .not be
mixed with politics, and by others
that-"I'bc.ler'terms has.noi been mixed" with politics, and still others say
it has .be'euAinixed with politics , or
that'"'if it has -not ,' been mixed it
wasn't-''because somebody didn't want
to  mix  it  with politics.
If'you'would kindly explain this
mixing business, I shall be grcally
obliged to yoii, ns I don't want to
get the wrong kind of a mix on my
ballot mark when I-go to yote at thc

was brewing than there was of statesmanship,. .'  < ,*,..!.
When-thoso liberal premiers',  were

great, possibilities     to bo swallowed
ami     accumulated     in the   political
stomach of his- side of politics in his

* Last Tuesday, at Kmilcauvlllc,
Altn,, Mr. Cushing, Minister of Public Works, made an important state-
ment about the future work of our
present  government.
Ile said he hud come to-the conclusion that the province sliould own
the railways within the boundaries ol
the province, One road had asked
the government to guarantee their
bonds. Nu iiid not sec why they
should uot. isMtu their own bonds jiinI
ns well, nnd build the road themselves. The province was full ol coal,
ami yet the people were sulfcring
from a coal lumliie on account of in-
Millicient railway facilities. He woiild

The revelations -whieh hay.e. shocked
the people of P-.ri1.aiii regarding the
condition existing in the Chinese
compounds in the Transvaal will, it
is .sincerely he ped, put an end to the
degrading .state of virtual slavcrv
that our 'uie has resulted in introducing.' If this national disgrace was
foreseen from the first, as has been
freely admitted; it goes a long way
the Iioers to Hritish rule It is urged in apology' that the mines cannot
to palliate the obstinate resistance of
profitably be worked without corralling and impounding laborers under
conditions   that    lead to and    entail
, unspeakable* degradation. Then let
the mines remain unworkeil so long
as Uritsin governs the Transvaal and
Canada is responsible for that government. We cannot afford, even if
in the least degree inclined, to accept
the cynical dictum that all considerations of national prestige, honor,
humanity, and common decency must
l.e sacrificed for dividends. There is
air impressive'truth'in this old, adage
that gold may be bought too dear.
And we will be paying far loo high a
priceifor lhe gold of.the Transvaal if
it costs our acquiesence, in the wholesale degradation of virtually imprisoned laborers, even though they
be of an inferior race, and so ignorant as tb put themselves into die
hands of unscrupulous agents.
■ Canada look a leading' part 'In .lie
establishing of ■ Hritish rule iu the
Transvaal, and' sacrificed not inly
money but precious, lives to that i-i'd.
Never' was the Hritish ISiiipire mor.1
severely, criticised ,, liy the world ' ot
nations . Ihan during" that struggle.
Hut the Hritish heart was right and
true, and thc Hritish spirit lofty and
honorable. It has since transpired
that the people were deceived in m.iuy
particulars, but that makes it all "lie
mere clear that lliey -were-, actuated
by. the highest "and noblest impulses.
Now there can lie no deception.   The
, people know, ,with shameful certainty,
just what is going on in the Transvaal.
'Ihey know the 'motives of those who
have brought the deplorable condition
aliont. Everything has been laid bare
and is the common talk of the civ-,
ili/.ed world. If there is a certain
amount   of resentment in  the   public
A. E. Mumford tells how Psychine
cured him after the Doctors
gave him up
" It le twelve years since Psychine cured
me of galloping consumption." The
speaker was Mr. A. E. Mumford, six feet
tall, and looking just what he is a husky
healthy farmer. He works his own farm
near Magnetawan, Ont.
" I caught my cold working as a fireman
on the C.'P.R." he continued. "I had
night sweats, chills and 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 tak- phmtcd at th
Psychine when he first caught cold he
would have saved himself a lot of anxiety
and suffering. Psychine cures nil ltfcg-
troubles by killing the srerms—the roots of
the disease. g

■ there is everv reason to "believe that
an election will be sprung ai an
early^ date. There can be no mistaking the attitude of the capitalist partes in-this respect. Both Liberal
and Conservatives ' are straining every
nervc to get into shape as rapidly as
possible, but, by tacit consent, or
actual agreement, no notice will be
given until  the last possible moment
' for-fear of.further arousing an already deeply-interested working class.
Speaking in Vancouver some mouths
ago 1 stated lhat I believed that
some such arrangements had been
enlered into by the capitalist parties,
and further that in my opinion the
only ri*ason for the hesitation in
springing   the election   at   thai    time
' wa_ the energetic" action of the Socialist party in placing its organi/.ers
in the field, and tbe prompt response
of the workers lo the signal of bat-
' tie. Trusting that this energy has
been exhausted, or that the workers
liave been once more lulled'into iliac.
tivity or listlessness, the capitalist
parties are again working iu silent
but' strenuous effort to gel ready for
the fray and place tlie proletarian
lorces  at an obvious  disadvantage.
It is highly advisable that lhe Socialist parly clears decks for action,
or,, in other words, gets down to business. I would suggest that each local arrange forthwith for a nomination meeting to be' held within a
month from date, and that Socialists
in unorganized districts apply at
once to the provincial executive to
nominate, suggest, or assist them   to'
ij secure suitable candidates. This light
is,.g6ing to be lhc most stirring and
momentous in thc history of Canada
and will  prove of world-wide    iuter-
■ est. It ■ is- up to the workers to come
out of; the'fray   the victors in   every
* district contested. If they- do not
succeed to.this, extent they can at
lekst make it evident to society that
half., dozen fangs of their* capitalist
exploiters have been extracted for
good in this province of British Columbia.
Yours in the struggle for freedom,
