fA large audience assembled     in
the Union Hall on Sunday   when
the weekly meeting of Fernie' local
*was held.   Comrade George Smith
;cf Coal Creek occupied the chair,
•and the meeting opened by, singing  of  Socialist  songs.    Comrade
Harrington was the speaker,   and
his subject was "The History     of
.-the Labor Movement," and it was
patent to all that he had made a
comprehensive study   of   his   subject.     Comrade   Harrington      remarked that   • in    order to understand the lesson of the labor movement it was necessary to take    a
brief review of primitive man, and
in  the  earliest   records  of  primi-"
tive man we find him living in   a
common state'; it was assumed at
one time He was living   as' a tree
dweller, he may have lived alone,
but there was no actual proof. We
first became acquainted with him
as a fish eater this implies      the
use  of fire,   and   is   termed      the
middle  stage  of  savagery.    From
then  on,  up through the groups,
tribes  and  parties,  we find labor
is common, and every one shared
and shared alike, as they say Socialists would do now, * during sa-*
vageryKthe   unit _ of the     human
family 'could  only  procure  sufficient to provide for himself and his
offspring;   it  was,   therefore,    unprofitable tb enslave him, and so
..cannibalism, was the rule;' - .with
the discovery of cereals and     the'
multiplication   and,, domestication
produce more than it required   to
maintain him. it became profitable
to enslave him, so that instead of
having ,one --good meal from their
visitors  of  war,   the  victor  could
have several per day, so long   as
the slave lived.

Private  property now,, creeps in
with the; dawn cf civilization   necessitating   the     creation   of tho
state with its 'three     functioning
aims,    ,the   house of Legislature,
the bench of judges, the police and
army, then also is born that great
economic    determining   force   the
class struggle, the earliest     great
successful  movement* I,.am  aware
of, is that of the Israelites told in
the second book of the Biblo. The
. Isroelities   wished  to   go   to    the
woods and worship their God, and
it is peculiar that nearly all economic revolts arc preceded by the
lower class attacking tho Gods of
the ruling class, or the iuanric. of
worshipping ,   them;   Moses     nnd
Aaron go  10 Pharoah, Moses has
tho brain., but has an impediment
,in his speech, so Aaron docs   the
talking,  but Pharoah  rjays    why
load yo thc people from ,thoir burdens, got ye to your tasks, and ho
commanded that they should havo
no more straw as heretofore, but
should get it for themselves, How
this race of slaves came to man-h
out of a    country governed    by
military   despotism   it would be
hard   to say with nny degree   of
correctness the only    information
we have comes presumably frojn
descendants    of    slaves   and   the
causes given are impossible; perhaps there was some black   art,
Eome magic shown by Moses, such
things woro practised in Egypt Jn
those days, but in all likelihood
tho Israelites becojning numerous
nnd hardy by tholr toll, and tho
Egyptians becoming enorvatod by
luxury and idlenoHH, tho Blavos appealed to  the kw  of  tho biggest

a Helot as the   -Spartan's slaves

sworms  of Helots when Meahani-
dias, tho ruler'of Sparta died, had.
his   son   assasinated  and  became
the    tyrant   himself,    he invented
many diabolical tortures   among
which was a life like automatum
of  a woman which he facetiously
called his wife Apega; this terrible
mechanism with human wiles and
graces enticed its victim  to    embrace her, whereupon his doing so
a spring Was loosened which sent
a score of daggers into his breast.
For 15 years he ruled Sparta and
was   finally     overthrown . by the
combined , armies     of Rome   and
Greece;   to   show  how  widespread
the labor movement was in ■ those
days and for long after would be
a  lengthy   task  requiring  several
addresses; ■ how that Jesus of Nazareth who railed at the rich and
exalted the poor belonged to  one
of them; how the early Christian
movement was a labor movement
it  would be  better  not  to  touch
upon this briefly, as it might raise
misapprehension, but to those who
would  ., study this,  I recommend
Ward's    "Ancient   Lowly.''      The
guilds had-to   a  great  extent regulated the wages of the workman
for some time prior to this'period
the   beginning  of   our  era;   trades
unions were very powerful,     they
successfully combined to force .the
wage,   and  by  co-operative  societies were'forcing the middle class
down* into'their  own ranks, thus
necessitating   '   drastic    measures,
they were finally suppressed about
413 A.D.   Trades unions are heard
no more of for   some     time;     the
mediaeval  guilds   through  an  artisan movement, pure and simple',
nevertheless   reflects   some   protection upon the laborer, until   the
suppression  of the   labor unions,
the guilds were not very powerful
but shortly after this event   they
became financially and politically
a power" in the land;  financially,
through tho   doath* bequests     of
craft  brothers; .by  collecting    fee
for     apprenticeship,  by  charging
for  entrance   any by gratui/tious
from living brothers,  and p^liti-
'cally through   this   wealth     and
their  power politically was such
that tho" king-nimself dare not do
anything which he believed to bo
contrary     to  tho London guilds;
this could not bo tolerated by*tho
ruling class, so in tho yoar 1543'
thoy  wero    disbandod   and   their
property confiscated, at tho instigation of the Earl of   Soniorsot,
on the plea that they associated
with  superstitious  practices,   ono
of these practices-was their praying for the sick instead of calling
in medical help, so that then as
now men were imprisoned for believing in God and not believing
in Him; prior to this tho laborer
in England received for one day's
labor    suilicient to keep  him    a
weak, thiB was called the golden
age of labor, but now with    the
depreciation of money, tho debasement of coin,-and thn onforcing
of laws already onacted and tbe
suppression of tho guilds, tho laborer    is   forced into depths     of
misery and degradation and   tho
golden ago passos away and   anothor age anything but golden be

Working Classes Should be in
a Position to Know How
They Stand in Relation
to Capital
Too much sti'..s cannot be laid upon
the stress of n thorough understanding
■of tbe circumstances surrounding- the
working class under the present system
of property and proper application of
•all tbepowers at it'h command to relieve
tho workers from the economic pressure
tliey suffer insder.it   *
The purpose of production, under the
rule of capital, is to bring profit to the
pockets of the owners of the resources
of the earth and the machinery of production. This profit cannot be obtained
unless those who perform the labor
necessary to carry ou production can
he in some manner compelled to surrender, their power to labor for something
less than an equivalent of the wealth
produced by its expenditure, This is,
happily for the capitalists, very neatly
provided, for under the guise of what is
termed the wage system. In return for
the'expenditure of his labor power the
worker receives wages. Upon tlio face
•of it hii appears to be paid for what he
has done. If he were actually paid for
what he had done some sliiewdiignriiij;
-would bo required,^determine how his
employer could obtain a profit from the
transaction. That the purchasers of
labor "power do make a profit out rf tho
nrame somehow leads to the conclusion
that the worker is not paid for what he
does. His wapes must, therefore, come
to him as a result of other calculations.
It i.s of prime necessity that ho be made
to understand clearly the secret of the
wage process in order that he may so
shape his action as to enable him to es-
***cape"from— the~exactions~thatr**a"re_iaid"
upon him under it.
Under production for profit tho things
produced take their place in the'market
as commodities, i.e., things for sale.
Things for whicli the owner has no uso,
but which he must sell in order tn tians-
form their value into things for which
he has use.
As the workers have no ownership in
the means of production they nre forced
to sell their, labor'power to the capital-
ist**, Tho latter, by thoir ownership of
the resources of the earth and machinery-
of production, are in coniplotocommand
of tho labor power of the workers.
They must sell their labor power to tho
capitalists in order to obtain tho necessities of lifo, Having ho means of production of their own through which
they can expend it and thus obtain tho
requisites for tholr continued existence,
thoir'labor power becomes of no use to
them. They must offor it for sale in
tho market in order to transform its
value Into the things for which thoy
havo use, i.e., food, clothing, shelter,
etc, Tholr very bodies become, na it
were, factories for the production of tho
commodity, labor power and themselves
sellers of tlmt commodity. Thoy must
soil or starve, honco the purchasers
whereof, tho capitalists, havo a powerful lever in their favor In determining
thu prlco.
Commodities, as a rulo, exchange in
tho markot according to tho rospnctlvo
amount of necessary social labor em*
bodied In tho,, production. This hold.
au truo of tho commodity labor powor
as of any othor, If a glvon amount of
food, otc,, is requisite to tho production
of a day's labor power, I.e., tho keop ol
tho laboror for ono (lay, then tho truo
•exchange valuo of a day's labor powor,
expressed In money, Is tho prlco of tlmt
amount of (bod, etc! If this given
amount of food, etc., cau bo produced
in, say, (our hours, and tho length of
tho normal working day bo eight hours,
then It logically follows that tho ox-
change value of a day's labor power is
only one-half the e.vchange value of the
product of one day's labor. If the
worker ;;ota the equivalent in money of
ibih given amount of ,oo<l, etc., ho has
received all that-his labor power for
one dny is worth in the market.. As he
lias produced this food, etc, or its equivalent, in fow; out of the fight hours he
has worked, the product of his 1-ibor for
the remahiin<- four-hours is a clear *.-ain
for the capitalist. Jt hns cost him
nothing. It represents his profit, ,lt is
the price the worker pays for, the-blessings of capitalistic rule.
The capitalist class is enabled to'
maintain its position of mnstery ot" the
menus of production and its consequent
dominion over the army of laborers
Bolcly by virtue of its instrument, the
State. By control of, the organized
powers of government, legislative, judicial and executive, it sustains, bulwarks
and defends its property rights in the
means of production and its consequent
enslavoment of labor.
So long as tho laborers give their
political support to the parties of capitalism they but forge tho fetters upon
their, own limbs.. They grant to the
master ciasB the power and privilege to
enslave and rob them.
The interests of the enslaved class
demand that their economic bondage
be brought to an end by breaking the
rule of capital over the means-of production; the things upon .which the
workers depend for their-sustenance.
To effect this it is.necessary to wrest the
control of tho State from the hands of
the capitalist class and use its powers
to effect such transformation of property
rights in the means of production as
will henceforth,secure to all men the
full fruits of their labor.
To effect this requires the best .efforts
of every member of the working class.
The - political movement ot labor
throu-ihout-thj. world signals the rapidly approaching day, of reckoning for;
tliat vulgar and repulsive' protit-mon-
•■cring class that now holds sway over
the world's industries and makes the'
lives of workers a hideous sacrifice
upon their theives' altar, capital.

caused hy an Inflamed condition of
the rnucuos lining of the eustachian

you havo a rumbling sound or Imperfect htiarln*;, and when It la entirely closed, deafness is tbo result,
and unless the inflammation can he
taken out and this tubo restored to
Its normal condition, hearing will b6
destroyed forever ; nine cases out of

nothing but an Inflamed condition

We thank our readers for the

i'or it is to them we owe our pce-
sent strong,,position among the
human family.
* It is our intention to make this
paper the Tribune of the workers..
TEe defender of the oppressed, .the
attacker of evil, and the guardian
of the interests of the workers of
this community, whose lot it is to
face the greatest danger every day
of their lives, in order that this
community shall prosper.
No we do not intend to sell out.
On the contrary the workers who
rim this ..paper realizing the "immense power of the press in moulding public opinion,* intend to
spend a few thousand dollsars in
equipping our plant with modern
machinery and in further extending our power for good.
.We are here to stay.
The Labor unions- are here to
stay.. ■
The political movement of the
working class has come to stay,
and it is our intention to push it
on to victory. In doing this the
interests o£ our readers will- not
be allowed to suffer.
We have witnessed many- changes
during'1907- we may witness many
more during 1908.   We live in an
progress with the age.
Our circulation is on the increase, especially outside Fernie,
so we have decided to be known
in future as "The District Ledger.*'
Success to Femie and district.

of in some quarters. That would
not alleviate matters one bit,
neither would it increase the market for coal. The Coal Companies
having contracts with their employees, cannot reducej wages and
if they could do so the consumers would immediately demand a*
reduction* in price.
Already the consumers of. "coal
are getting it at a less price than
prevails in the old country and
they can' well affotd to pay present rates.
In tho steam coal trade several
of thc Companies whose contracts
with the C. P. R. expire at the
end of the year, are now negotiating for new contracts. The C. P.
R. is the most niggerly buyer of
coal in the market and unfortunately is in a position to dictate to many of the mining companies. We believe that when they
commence operating at, Hosmer
they- will not be able to procure
coal as cheaply as they now purloin from some companies. The
coke ovens are dull, but with the
opening up of* smelters, we can
look for increased activity in the
production of coke.

The "Solid'Seven" from B. C.
have been airing-their views in the
House at Ottawa on the Oriental
Invasion of British Columbia; of
course they had to place themselves* right, with their constituents in view of the coming election. . 'What a farce. ' Theso men
wero. in the\;House,'at Ottawa
when the treaty with Japan was
put through. Did they raise their
voices in protest? Of course not.
Thoy hailed with delight tho passing of- the treaty because the party said so,- and becauso the Canadian Manufacturers' Association
desired anothor avenue for trade
and choap labor.
Whon tho Vancouvei'ltes forced
tho hands of the Ottawa government, .by cracking tho hoads of a
fow Caps, then thoy got a move
on, and sont Minister of Labor
Lemieux- on a • jaunt to Japan,
ostensibly to stop the Japanese
from flooding Canada with their
coolitB. .
The wily Japanese "got next and
handed Mr, Lemieux a lemon, and
Canada is out the expenses' of the
trip. What does a Quebec Canuck
know about a1 Japanese anyway?
Lemieuk ' should have stayed at
Home, and .sent his able deputy
Mackencie King out to Japan.
Mackenzie King is great at fixing
labor*—dear or cheap—' and if ho
had feailcd with tho men, he
certainly would have played a
winning card with tho ladies and
the Japnneno would havo stayed
at homo.

The Domestic Coal trade of Alberta is somewhat alack at present
the mines complaining of a Bcarei-
ty of oril»r» Th. vrry .*!.-;; iuJ.
open fall throughout the north
-west this year has caused a great
saving of the coal bills as com*
pared with a year ago.
The rapid development of a
number of small mines scattered
throughout Alberta added to the
increased production of the larger
mine*, has caused a temporary
glut in the market.
A cut in prices has been spoken
Most, of our readers have heard
of the laws'   of   Frank,   in      the
Crow's Nest\Pass District of   Alberta. .   Frank is noted   for three
things.    It's  coal,  the rock slide,
and the famous sulphur   springs.
At the base of a rocky cliff bubbles forth one of the finests prings
of sulphur water' in Western.   Canada.   It is commonly.* supposed to
therefore    public    property.    Our
go<3d  LibSeral  Government" is    so
liberal that it has given away the
sole    right to take water      from
that spring to the Canadian American   Coal  Company,   a Yankee
concern operating the Frank mine.
The .owners  b'eing all  Americans
with no interest whatever in Canada except to skin labor and take
as  much  of  the   .natural   wealth
out of the   country   as   possible.
Wn shall* see the interesting spec-;
ing. corelled   to pay tribute *   to
American   speculators.     The .Sulphur    springs    of   the   Canadian
west  should never be allowed   to
pass, out of-the hands of the.people.   Our patriotic Liberals     care
for nothing but -the dough and to
hell with posterities.
Most people in this district have
heard of the town of Blairmore,
nestling as it does, amid some of
the finest scenery of the Canadian
"Rockies. For some years it has
been the custom of the residents
pf the Pass to bury their dead on
the hillside, in a beautiful location, a short distance from the
town, The land was thought to
belong to the Government, Our
good Liberal ' Government has
quietly given this hillside to a
Liberal party healor by name of
Little,! and in futuro the people
must pay for tho privilege of
burying their dead,
These are but instances ,of tho
manner in which tho public property is squandered in the interests of political grafters,
No sulphur wator to bathe in,
in spite ,of tho fact that millions
of gallons aro running to waste;
and nowhere to bury' tho dead
without paying tribute. Roll up,
ye slaves, and .vote (or tho Liberals and, graft; and.ye will soon
have no air to breathe, in spile
of the Chinook winds    "'
The decision of the recent Convention in'Calgary to, ally the labor unions of* Alberta with the
Socialist Party of Canada is likely .to have a far reaching effect
upon both old parties. In the
past it has been the custom of
party leaders,' both grit and tory
to coquette with labor leaders in
order to capture the labor vote,
to so devide the workers on election day that they dared to be
dangerous. We happen to know
that elTdrts have been.made,along
these lines lately;—especially by
the Grits, who have utterly failed
to attract the certain well alnown
labor leaders into their field. Tha
modern1 labor leader is generally
a close student of political affairs
and it is not so. easy for Grit oi
Tory politicians to' lead him astray. Not a trade union leader in
Western Canada today desires -.to
go down the same path as Ralph
Smith, M. P.', h.-.s gone and be
shunned by his ' fellow,craftsmen.
And so we see the most aggressive and .the ■ most intellectual
among trade union leaders , advocating, the principles of the Socialist Party of Canada. '■

The statement made to the effect
that tho small run < on the Bank
of Commerce which took place at
Fernie, was caused by the report
Nent out to the press, is not true,
Tho run, if it oan he called a run,
wus caused by the circulation of
a jmmphlot containing allegations
against tho , Bank of Commorco
made by a man named Ashplant,
of London, Ont.
It wns amusing to boo hoiiih peoplo withdrawing tholr money from
thc Hank of Commerce and do-
powltlng the" saino in tho Potu

, sec tho Postmaster depositing the

closing its doors, and tbo statement appearing- in some papers
that a mob surrounded tbe bank
is moonshine. We don't have any
mobs in Fernie, and our banks
are as solid as any upon this continent.
The old parties have practically'
selected their t candidates and we
propose to briefly examine their
prospects. The Macleod riding being; largely composed of. farmers
it is. expected, that they are safe
for the, old parties. We shall see
what we , shall see. John Herron
of Pincher Creek is the Tory candidate, Poor old- John, he has
had his day, he has been in the
Eouse of Commons since-last general election. What has he accomplished? Nit. He is.supposed to
be a -  strong candidate; hut   not
"^m^g_^e_i_Lh_____^or_the wagej,
corners of his , constituency, nor
a.mong the intelligent and up-to-
date farmers. No', poor old John
has become fossilised. The workers
have nothing to hope for from
him. Tory he was born and Tory
he will die. "-.    ".
A. B. Macdonald is the Liberal
candidate, so says the Liberal machine and the humble and lowly,
voter must govern himself accordingly, and bov/ clown and worship,
the Golden calf that will be trotted forth from Mac's ranch. For
has it not been so decreed by the
"Hon,-Frank" tho, dictator of our
political '■ destiny,. ' Are not the
Grits in power and have not they

their pockets full of new roads

The False Creek Coal Syndicate, for

The expert of the syndicate is confident that a live-foot vein will be struck
at a depth of 500 feet. The syndicate
has secured the" necessary permission

Fatigue Symptoms* and Tests
That Should Be, Heeded.
Tomorrow's Work  Will  Suffer  if You
Overdrive Today—Ths  Prico a   Man
Is Compelled to Pay if He Kcops on
•the Pressure Too Long.
When we-lmve set out on n piece ot
muscular work or lie-id work we might
expect to find a steady, regular increase in tho fatigue that resulted
from it-so much work, so much fatigue. , But that is not the case. The
•fatigue curve" is not a straight line
eloping up from one corner ot the
chart diagonally to the other. Instead
it goes sharply upward. at the start.
Then for a long distauce It runs along
ou an approximate level, aud then It
takes a sharp upward turn again.
The level stage—the plateau of hard, '
normal working power, where tho cost
In energy, doesn't vary perceptibly—Is
the "second wind."
You know how it is in long distance
running. At first the fatigue increases
very rapidly. A man has to push himself with all. tho will power lie can
muster. Then all of a sudden it gets
easier. It seems as if ho had tapped
a big, nev supply of energy, and he
can keep running for a long timo without nny great increase in his feeling
of fatigue. At last ho reaches a point
where'tlie exertion tells hard again.
Fatigue piles up terribly fast now, so
fast that unless tho runner knows just
how much he is good for and has made
careful calculations he is likely to be
"all in" . before ho 'gets to the end.
Every step makes ari inroad on his reserve energy. The last s**)urt costs
more than all the rest together.
If a man has covered his distance
without touching this final turn of the
fatigue curve he will get rested in' a
reasonably short time and be able" to
go over the course again. But if instead he has to keep on, teeth set, eyes
bulging, "hugging his corncobs" until
he rolls over on tho ground, it may
tako weeks for him to get into good
form again.    In a big race naturally,
-he-8-got-to-be-i'cadj-to-do-that *—_
There aro emergencies In everybody's
llfo when tho merely prudent thing
isn't the right thing. If a house Is on
firo and a family ou tho top floor is in
danger and you're tlie only person on
the promises ' you can't stand calmly*
aside and calctih.te your fatigue curve.
There's a necessity for action—at any
cost whatever, oven life.
A man may have a big proposition to
put through, some Important combination to effect, a now movement to get
under way. rorhnps lie Is tlio only
person who knows tlio whole situation.
Success may depend upon hiin. In
such a case ho must let mere pmdeneo
go by the board, and ho must stand
ready to pay the price, too, when thnt'a
called for,      o
But "such emergencies aro not everyday matters. Tomorrow wo are going to have another day's business to
attend to, and ilio probability Is lhat
Jt will bo Just as important as today's.
Consequently wo havo no right to overdrive ouisolvcs today, for the prlco of
It will ho taken out of the quality of
tomorrow's work. Wo havo dono

, Tho general increase in tho price of
effect of turning public attention to the
timber supply in general. To-many,
the increase in prices is sufficiently explained by saying that there is a combine among lumber producers and
manufacturers. But, independent of
the possible existence of any combine,
a deeper cause underlies tho increase in
prices, tvncl tho cause lies in this, that
timber is becoming harder and harder
for tho manufacturer to net. Greater
and greater economy and use of materials formerly considered as waeto is
being introduced into the manufacture
of wood, but in spite, of it nil tho prico
of lo;-s is going up, owing to higher
wnses tlmt have to bo paid, greater
distances the logs have to bo brought
and many othor reasons.
Not in America alnno is the searclty
of timber being felt; it lias become a
world-wide question. Only Biiven countries in tho world are now in a jiosition
to export timber. In Europe tliere nro
live, namely, Austro-IIungnry, Norway,
Sweden, Finland and Ituasia; In America there nro two, namely, Canada and
the United States. ButliusBla, AuBtro*
Hungary and tho United Statos nro increasing their population and developing their industries so fast Hint they
cannot long continuo to bo exporting
countries. Tho timber of Norway is
threatened with excessive cutting. Gor*
ninny, whoro tho practice of forestry
has boon brought to the greatest perfection, hns never beon nblo to supply
home demands, nnd is a heavy importer.
Canada, Sweden and Finland nro loft,
nnd llieir supply is hopelessly dolkltmt
for tho world. - If Canada -wcro to
attempt to supply tho United St a ten

night. Those who* have seen this
grand old play presented before
by Stoddard and other leading
aotors wero very well pleased with
the performance. There were ho
programmes, so we cannot oredit
any names as they deserved, but
taking the play-all through it is
one of the best things that has
been brought to our city, and Mr,
Walker deserves the recognition ot

While unconscious his pockets
were rifled, as his watch and chain
as well' as various other articles

Mr. Scranton has no idea of the
happenings" immediately after his
being- struck, In a dazed condition he must have wandered
through the streets, as when he
recovered his full senses, he was
near the Janctioh Inn, located in
the opposite direction from his
homo. Ho Anally reached his
house, still being somewhat dazed
and* suffering acutely from his
severe injuries.
Mr. Scranton used to live in Fernio, and was known by the name
of William Bowell, his step-fathers
name,, he is now man led and took
his first name of Scranton.
