If. all goes well with the application of the" company known as
the eastern B. C. railway company
for permission to* build a railway
the first ten miles of which will
run from the Crow's Nest Pass to
the Loop, British Columbia will,
within a few months have another big producing coal company,
says the Victoria. Colonist. An
intimation that the Company will
apply for incorporation at the
next session of parliament has
appeared for the last few weeks
in  the British  Columbia  Gazette.
It now transpires that back of
the company is D. C. Corbin, the

Lethbrldge,    Alberta
Queenstown, Jan. 8.—The long
overdue Canadian. Pacific steamer
Mount Royal steamed slowly into
QueenstowrL- today, and the news
of her safety was received with
gladness in shipping circles. She
had been last, reported off the Lizard, December 10, and-watch was
being kept.for ber on both sides
of the• Atlantic,.and as far south,
as Bermuda. She left Antwerp, on
December'7,  for St.  Johns N.  B.
She had on board 300 Hungarian emigrants and a crew of about
100 meni She was 'definitely sighted ol. Oldhead of Kinsdale, 16
miles west of this port early today.* She was then proceeding
slowly under her own steam, and
signalled that she was coming in
here. She declined the help of a
tug sent out to assist her and
came in alone. The trouble with
her .boilers'1 was the reason that''
Mount Royal had put back. " She
is at.best a slow boat and shortly after.leaving the British coast
she encountered a series of violent
gales. She battled with the heavy
weather for. a fortnight, until
Xmas. 'eye, when serious, trouble
with her boliers developed. The
steamer was then in longtitudo
21 west, and latitude *43 north.
The engine.room staff ultimately
succeeded in obtaining a moderate
supply of steam, but the weather
was such that the captain reluctantly declared it was' best 7 to
make for the Irish coast. Passengers and crew are all well.

In a Stirring and Interesting Address lohn Harrington Reviews
" labor's Progress Down    Ages
Note.—As we could not get,all  before we have another great sue-
of this matter in last week we
have decided to reporduce the first
part again, so as to make it the
more interesting.
, A large audience assembled in
the Union Hall on Sunday when
the weekly meeting of Ferine local
was held. Comrade George Smith
of 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 under-
stand the lesson of the labor movement it was necessary to taVe a
brief review of primitive man, and
,in the earliest records of primitive man-'- we find him living in   a
.' common state; it was assumed at
one time lie was living   as   a tree
. dweller, he may have lived alone,
but there was no actual proof. We

Whit Monday 1382 Sir Simon Bur-
ley, riding through.Gravesend saw
a likely looking felloy whom he
claimed as a slave,. saying he was
the son of a former female slave
of his, the fellow -was a favorite
with his companions who commenced to murmur upon his being abducted; he, seeing this, appealed to them, but they, being
held in awe by the great man's
pressure through their customary
deference to their superiors, did
not move, but immediately he had
hori; the duty of these yoivng men j gone they commenced to cry
was to kill off the slaves when "down with the tyrants under

movement was a lalior movement
it would be better not to touch
upon this briefly/ as if might raise
misapprehension, buf'.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
as a fish eater this implies the zareth who railed at the, rich and
use of fire, and is termed the ' exalted the poor belonged to one
middle stage of savagery. From'"of them; how the early Christian
then- on,  up  through the  groups, '
tribes  and parties,  we find lalior
is common, and every one shared
and shared alike, as they "say Socialists would do now, during savagery   the   unit   of the „ human
family could  only procure sufficient to provide for himself and his
—offspring;—it- was*;—therefore-p—tin-v
profitable to enslave him, and so
cannibalism was  the rule;      with
the discovery of cereals and,   the
multiplication  and  domestication
of* cattle a man was enabled   to
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.

no more of for some time; the

of laws already enaoted and the
suppression of the guilds, the laborer Jo. forced into depths    of

London,, .while in audience „ with
him, Wat-Tyler was. stabbed, by
the Mayor of London. . The rebellion fell through, and the .leaders
were hung, and the peasants dispersed, ' being subject to greater
tyranny than ever. The Cromwell-
ian rebellion being successful the
laborers have now better times,
but with the death of Cromwell,
•and mark you, this rebellion was
won off the small landed proprietors against the. . landed owners,
not involving the laborcra as
principals, but as subjective tools,
with,the death of Cromwell, as I
said. -Ms son.Oliver being of weak
character, and General Monk being bought by the re-actionists,
the restoration takes place, and
William of Orange is sent for.
The workers now sink into tho
lowest form of slavery, producing,
as Rogers says, a serf without
land. An- act is now passed' in
1662, which purposes to be for
tho benefit of labor to exterminate able bodied* arogrants, rogues
and vagabonds, to enumerate , all
the laws that were passed deliberately to' enclave labor, would
take up ^00 much.time, B-afflce it

Thrt'-e horrifying coal mine disasters in the United States,     at-
- tended with the loss of more .than
one thousand lives. This is the
recent record of a single week. The
world  pauses' in   terrified   amaze-
. ment and asks "can nothing be
done to prevent this awful loss of
life and destruction of property.
Without doubt a_closer surveillance of coal mines and mining
methods generally is' necessary. In
- countries where' mines are under
government   control,  ' while acci-
■ dents are not by any, means - un-
. known, they are- at least far   less
'numerous than they have been the
. past   few . years   in   the    United
States, where statistics show that
mine accidents and the percentage
vof  'fatalities    is    increasing,  and
* that  they;* are -thr.ee times ..more,
numerous than in Belguim," for' instance. -  .      ... ,

' this was .the most "gratifying official   recognition    the   proposition
had. ever met, it has since devel-'
•,   , oped that it will be impossible to
' do anything farther with the creation  of ' this new., branch of      the

this * decision oi official Washington will only spur them on to

been the principal mover to this
end, will jsiiuply .redouble efforts
to accomplish what they set out
over a decade ago to bring about.
Although -, there . was at first
much opposition to the idea, and
later an apathy regarding it that
was exasperating tb the friends

were frightened off without securing any money or valuables, but
carrying two grips belonging to
German  emigrants.
Two of the robbers' showed revolvers and, pointing'them at the

give up their valuables.

with his lantern and they fled.

duty and absolute right to render
themselves master of their own
destinies by seizing upon government power, and this from the
working class 40 years ago, and
we are still drilling it into these
heads today.
The 8 hour day agitation was
on at this time, and although the
knights of labor denounced it the
movement was so widespread and
conducted in such a vigorous manner, Simons tells us that no one
not living in those days can have
any conception of the extent and
vigor.of this movement, and the
knights .of. labor .were..swept into
the movement in spite of themselves, they had set the day of its
millennial dawnj for May'1st 1886

this crime some strikers had been
shot down at a mass meeting. The
chief of police Bonfield, as Charles

to American communities, he
cracked the heads * of all in sight,
until no one remained standing
upon his feet, and then declared
that, peace was restored. This
method" of suppressing a strike
culminating in the shooting of the
strikers caused the citizens to hold
an indignation meeting 'in Hay-
market square. Mayor Harrison
found it qbite orderly, but after
he' had left the meeting this platoon of police .were hurried - to
the. spot, and the bomb .was
thrown. Russell describes the excitement and fear which seized the
entire country,, and now after 20
years asks what were we afraid of.
And' the answer is, 6 men in Buckram,' no more humiliating as it
is, yet so stands the fact .eferr-
ing to that old boaster Sir John
Falstaff in Henry the Fourth who
having been scared in the darkness, by, Prince Hal and Pjones,
afterwards boasted tbat h.j had
fought six men .in j3uckram.
Schnaubilt, who had thrown tbe
bomb, Charles Russell says, passed quietly out of Chic.go, and
made his way to Germany to live
and die in peace. Eight men were
arrested, four of whom were Socialist editors and leaders in the
8 hour movement. One was an an-
arffchist editor Linge, who' blew
his head ofl: by detonating a cartridge of fulphimating mercury in
his mouth, He was the only dangerous man amongst the 8 and
the' only anarchist; the 4 Socialist editors were sentenced to death
and the, verdict was protested
against by many eminent lawyers
William 'Morris sending, a protest
from'Lonclon, the,day of the ex-
ecw-tYonj^Charles' .Russell says, that
he; saw a number oi men crowding
impunity; they
must send- them to the Houses of
Legislature on the -basis of ■ the
class .struggle, .men who " know
what.* the workers want, and know
how to get it, and-not till this
class of men are sent will the-
workers' emancipation *"be_ effected.
After several questions had been
asked and. answered, the meeting
was brought to a close by the
singing of the International'Party.
Headaches end Shortness of Breath

Watery blood is an open invita-
tion to disease to take possession
of your system. Watery blood is
responsible ■ for nearly all the
headaches and sideaches that afflict womankind. Watery blood is
responsible for the dull eyes, sallow cheeks and the listless dragged out feeling that is found in
so many growing girls. Good
blood means good health, and
good blood actually comes
through the use of Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills.' .Weak, ailing, despon-
dent women, who use this medi-
tine are made active and strong,
listless, pale faced girls are given
neBt^oalth, rosy, checks; bright

and security. Mrs. E. S, Nightingale, Chcslcy, Ont., says' "My
daughter1 was ill for a long timo
with anaemia and would often be
confined to bed for three or four
days at a time, and we feared she

jSATUEDAY,    JAN.    llth,    1808.
i - ' «w—
The daily press of  Canada   for
some time has been asserting that
' the    "panic"    would    not    affect
'  Canada    and    especially Western
Canada, to any extent.
What do we find?   1240 men idle
in the coal trade of Western Canada alone.   Hundreds  of; railway
m«n    laid   off   by the C.  P.   R.
About 50 „ per cent, less employed
in the .uiBb?. i5&.?try. And every
day brings the ntvs of more men
.being laid . off, and    unemployed
meetings being held, in Canadian
..cities.    What -does it all mean ?
Go into the centres of industry
in Cft»ada. today.   What can'you
see ?   Hundreds,of the finest artisans   that   ever  struck   a'blow,
idle.   You can see them at every
street    corner, or    crowded     together where they can find a little
shelter,—like   so many dumb a*ni-;
reals,  looking dejected  and help-
lt_s and wondering what   is. the
ji-atte-i   The suffering 0that would
ensue ii we were to get one of our
cold  sqaps like we had in  1907,
would be terrible to contemplate.
The lot of the working- man and
his wife and children when there
is nO.work to be had-and      the
Alender savings have been exhaus-
- .ted—can   never be understood except     by    those  who   have been
through it.    Some goody goody,
well-to-do person will say,: "Why
—clon-t the working—class—saye-
their money." By dint .of self-
denial a working man may save
a little for a rainy day. But
wages generally are screwed down
to the substinence point," and in
this country the' opportunities of
saving money arc few* and especially to the man struggling * to
■keep a home together ' and raise
his children and educate them properly.
"Society today,'does ■»_*t recognize .he. rights of labor to em-
'ployment. A mail"may be working today,—-tomorrow- he may he
idle and with the loss of his job
—he loses his daily bread. It is
the great uncertainty of tho future that haunts us night and
day, in spite of our much vaiiht-
ed civilization.
The workers ol the world today
are at the mercy of the most devilish scroundrels.that ever planned
to  enslave tho human family.
The', entire capitalistic system
has been built u*> for-tho purpose
of profit mangerlng, in order that
some should toil in pain and suffering, while others should ride
in automobiles and enjoy the lux-
uries of the earth, ■•
-, Here we are today, in one of the
finest countries that God ever
gave to man. Millions of acres of
the most fertile land in the world
waiting to be cultivated. Unbounded resources: and mineral
-wealth untold in this fair Dominion awaiting the labor of man.
Our mines, factories, and mills
idle, our laborers walking the
Then you say there is no panic
—only a little financial stringency.
Tho truth Ib you1 do not know
what is tho mattor, and if you do
know; you daro not toll tho truth,
Vou dare not toll uh that your
entire capitalist nystein is rotten I
to the core.
That your preachers and parsons are paid by capital to so
distort and twist thc gospol in
order to perpetuate this hellish
That your snug and smooth
politicians would polute tho atmosphere of any honest man..
Thnt many of your public men
live for "Wine, Womon and Graft"
You dare not tell the working
class of Canada the truth, the
whole truth and nothing but the
For just as soon aa tho workers
get to know the truth:
Goodbye to the present system
of Capitalism. Then and not till
then will we cotne to our own,
and the working class own and
contiol that by which they  live
and thereby pt an end to  the
uncertainty of Liber's lot.

,We men have made sUoh a hellish mess of affairs by using our
votes in , the manner -we ,haye,
that we could get nothing worse
if. we allowed our wives, sisters
and daughters to have.a yote and
voice ' in' the conduct of affairs.
The influence of our women in
national and local government
would go a long way to keep men
in the right path . and to ensure
happiness to   our    entire nation.
Now that the civic election time
is drawing near, it is timely and
wise to think what we shall need
to benefit the city. And it is necessary" for every voter to pause
and consider the candidates (who
ever they may be) look well into
their past, as well *as their present.- Do not \-ote for a man because he is a friend, or because
others are doing so. But vote for
the  man    that  is   going  to  look

Some people' urge that to give
women a vote would unisex'them,
and other equally idiotic objections are heard against, granting
a franchise to women. Elizabeth
Robins in her new novel makes
one of her. characters reply to
these - arguments as follows:
"Don't you know that there are
girls and'women-in this very city
who are working early and
late for rich men, and who
are expected by these same employers to Iivo on six shillings a
-yeek?   Perhaps I'm wrong in say-
"'" it ..».-. Mi.."*t the women to
ing the men ex.***-,
live on that. It "may be that t&ey
know that'no'girl can—it may be'
that the men know--bow..that
struggle ends; But do they care?
Do they bother about chivalry?
Yet they, and all of you are
dreadfully exercised * for fearing
having a vote would unsex women, ... I stood and looked at
them! hundreds of worn women-
coining down steep stairs and
pouring out into tho streets.
What had they all beon doing? .
. , , Thoy had been making ci-
gars—sponding tho best years of
their lives, spending all Iheir
youth, in that grim, dirty street
making cigars for men.
Whose „ chivalry, prevents that ?
. . '. No chivalry prevents men
from getting women at the very
lowest wage (I want you to notice the low wage is the man's
consideration in all this)—men
get these women, that tbey say
are so tender and so delicate, to
undertake the almost intolerable
toil of tho rope-walk. They'get
women to make bricks. .. . That's
all right,
Women are permitted to swoat
ovor other peopled washing, v/heri,
they    should be  caring for thoir
own babies. , . At the pit-trams
wo sort coal. But a voto wovjd
soil   our hands!    Vou may  wear
out  women's    lives  in  factories,
you    mny    Rweat    them   in tho
slums,  you may  drive  them   to
the streets.   Vou do.
But a vote would unsex them."
When women" have tho vote thoy
will  use it ior tho upraising   oi
humanity  aii'l   for   tlie   aw^j-ing
into oblivion of tho shakles that
bind  the poor industrial      wage

Boise, Jan. 0—Judge Wood has

Federation of Miners -with the

and thereby your interests. Our
city is going ahead wonderfully
and made some good strides under
the,present regime. There are
still many improvements that can
be made, and „the" citizens who
have the votes to cast should use
some foresight, and not fall into
the backward way of' regulating
the affairs of tlio council; We say
the citizens, because it ■ comes
back to thorn, -unlosi- they get the
right men to represent them ih
the,.council in upholding the matters of vital-interest that, come
up  in  connection  with  the,, civic
Ms have the advantage of many
of the.older cities aiid towns, in-
as much as we can benefit by their
failures, and gain by their experience. But this cannot be accomplished if we get a council that is
one-sided, and have but one aim
nnd object—money—at no matter
what cost. Citizens, watch well
for whom you cast your votes,
and thereby rid" the city of many
things that now tend to keep it
back in some respects.
As ..we go-to press we have it on
good authority" that there will be
no election contest for the • civic
honors this year, and possibly it,
is well that such is the case.
These elections always stir up old
sores, and some one is waitingjfor
•j» fa
Fernie is rapidly forging ahead.
You do not need to go far to observe that fact.   Already we hear
of four or five blocks that will be
started early in the spring.    We
aro handicapped at present by the
want of these blocks.   There aro
no vacant Btores, no empty offices, and    no    housos to be had.
Many  families  aro waiting   and
watching for somo place to start
housekeeping, and houses aro tho
flrot thing that ought to bo 'Aiilt.

grout  field   i'or  some enterprlfring
person   who  has  tho  "noccBSpIy"
to put up a dozen or so of small
houses or cotta-jec.   It would be
a regular harvest for tho speculator   and  help   iho  city.    Wo   duo

With* no opposition these petty
feelings- are lost sight of, and
everyone feels glad that the,
j ."trouble" is all over. Coming so
soon after the holiday season,
, when one's hands' are hardly cold
■ from the warm and hearty handshake, we often wonder why it is
that the old hatchet is dug 'up,
and good citizens pass by on the
opposite side of the street with
never a look at their former ac-
quaintences, and it is months in
many cases, before they get back
.to the old friendship.
When a ticket like the following
is presented to the' electors of
Pernie, we can see no valid reason
for an election, and elections cost
money. Here is the ticket; For
Mayor, Aid. W. W. Tuttle; for
Aldermen, Aid. J. I». Quail,
M-issi-s. Fred. Vance, F. J, Watson, Fred. Johnson, It, Hamilton,'
In passing, wo believe that the
retiring council had the confidence
of tho city of Fernie, and were'
waited on at different times personally to stand for another year
but with no avail, all retiring
with tho exception of Aldermen
Tuttle and, Quail, and these two
gentlemen will be of great assistance to tho other new men who

The industrial depression that
is now upon us is going to test
the loyalty of the membership oi
° many trade unions. A trade union is powerless when its members
cannot find employment.   The-pre-
' sent state of affairs should open
the eyes of all trade unionists to
their:utter helplessness under the
present economic system. Under
the rule of Capitalism, labor is
mercilessly exploited when times
are good and left on the scrap
heap     to    starve, and die, when
times are bad.. .

the membership is growing by

kindly insert in vour paper a few remarks upon lho lciiffthy report issued*
by Mr. John Lea, chairman ofthe Liver-1
pool Distress Committee, as the. result j
of his recent visit to Canada?   I   have,;
been in Canada now for a considerable (
jfeime, and know a good deal of the place,
'being connected with tho police force
.. .and tho detective department.'  I have
travelled all through Canada, so what I ■
am'going to say is the plain, naked
,    truth, and I hope yon will publish it for
the benefit of intending* immigrants.'
Till-'. John Lea's remarks are certainly
-■ d. serving of censure and criticis-m,. He
must surely havo made a mistake.   Ho
coinmenc'eaby stating that there is no
opening for surplus-labor in Montreal
■ or Quebec.. Why, I contend'that- Montreal is one of tlio best places in Canada
for work;   Take, for instance, the Cmia-
.  dian Pacific Kail way works, which alone
iu this eity employ about 9,000-men of
all trades. Next take the Giand Trunk,'
whereabout 7,000 men are employed,' tenure of office'as  General Mana
the Montreal steel works— a very large   g.e,-,    rn   1905,   when  it  was  evi-
plant, lhe Canada car works, Canadian j dent. that -*the    busjwess     o:-  the
Rubber Company, and the Street Rail- \ Hom9-    Savings , and Loan Com.
wav and several other large firms.
1 pany had outgrown the powers of j
My  opinion   of  work  prospects in |-its charter, it     was merged into
Toronto .is the reverse of Mr. Lea's.
Thero labor conditions are worse than
in England,tand I am, speaking from
- experience, liot from a flying1 vieit. -
Then Mr. Lea says that the cost of
. food Is much the same. ' I assure you
* must pay"$4.75 per week for board and
lodgingv*which is equal to 19s. 9Jd. iii
English 'money. I had far superior
lodgings in an English town for 12s. per
week. Mr. Lea also says tbat clothing
is as cheap as at home. I can only say
that at present I am wearing a suit
which cost $87—£7 14e. 2d. in English
money—whereas I had a far superior
6iilt in Carli-lo (Cumberland) for £8 83.
I think Mr. Lea must have paraded
the most swell parts of tho city, as he
. did not see any ragged women or children. He should accompany mo for
juet ono''day on my rounds. I could
show him some ragged human beings
and Bomb low-toned characters.,,But
perhaps ho put up at tho best'hotels.
He could scarcely oxpect to see rasrged
women or children there. I write becauso I think Mr.' Lea's statements
have a tendency to decolvo intending
immigrants. I know what Western
-Canada ie.; I havo travelled it too often
not to know. You work for all you get
there, and you pay double prico (or
everything you purchoeo. 1 think if

for about ii year be would writoa dlffor.

Col. Mason received from the

■ strong   belieyer    in    union,    and
■ think that it is our only hope of
holding our own against the gam-
; biers of Wall street, and the man-
' uiacturers and trusts on what lit-
' tie it takes' to feed Betty and the
I .little ones so- dear to us.
j If the Jttev. Dr. I-I. C. Jennings
1 will cor.ie to Canton he will find
1 a doctor's union here, and' if he
! happens tb need one of them to
J go outside of the city limits he
; must have five'dr ten dollars to i I
-' pay iii advance or no doctor.
' Also the Rev. Dr. W. P. Cale
. cf Cincinnatti of St. Paul's church
.' in the opening address \vas equal-
;.ly emphatic in his views. He says
1 there are tv/o bides, to the ques-'
; tion. ' We are aware of that and
; the working man must be recog-
. nized, for we are the producers of
! all the nation's'wealth.
f *
Now, Dr. Cale is wrong when he
thinks that the working man does
not want to go to church. But
when he does go, he and his are
tors and their wives', and the up-
made fun of by some of the doc-,
per ten, so the poor working, man
feels that he is not wanted at.the-
.church with hisApoor_halfr_clad,
family, and he does not go again.
Now, the Rev. Dr. W.;D.'Cale says
that' the working, man spends
about . one thousand dollars a
year in saloons. I want to say
right here that he is wrong. The
average miner does,not make over
four hundred dollars a year, and
we have the great P. & O. plow
shops here in Canton, and there
are - men that have worked there
for thirty-five years and are paid
91.35 per day for ten hours labor.
Now they have cut the wages to
91.08 per day of eight hours.
Where could a man spend one
thousand dollars a yoar on such a
wage and feed Betty and those
little ones, pay $7 to ?10 per
month house rent and contribute
to the church or even look at a
saloon sirn?
:  Tlie Bev.  Dr. W. D.  Calo must
pay high wages in his book concern or his men would not have
one thousand dollars a year   to
spend-in saloons and he very likely belongs to the book and paper
trust,   aa books for   the. schools
are out of sight here, and'Bibles
cost from ten to. tv/enty dollars,'
which,puts them out of.the reach
of- the po'or laboring man,    for
he cannot buy when he has no
.money to'fcuyi-wifrho 7T'* .■■>> ".J.

wage question has been, 'crowded
to the limit, but I don't think so,:
and. if Dr.'   Jennings had to go
down in a coal mine to' earn, his
bread he might itim or be blown
to pieces at any! time.   The man
that takes'bis life in hand as does
the    miner,-   does   'hot get   pay
enough for what  work? he does.
Just look at tbe men that have
been blown, mangled and torn to
pieces in the last three yeaes. O,
brother laboring men, it is awful.

Is very careful about her churn. She
scalds it thoroughly after using, and gives
it a sun bath to sweeten It. She knows
that if her churn is sour it will taint tlie
butter that is made in it. Tho stomach is
a churn. In the stomach and digestive
and 'nutritive tracts are performed processes which aro almost exactly like the
churning of butter. Is It not apparent
then that if this stomach-churn is foul it
makes foul all which is put into it?
The evil of a foul stomach is not alone
the bad taste in the- mouth and the foul
breath caused by it, bat the corruption of
the pure current of blood and tho dissemination of dtecaso throughout the body.
Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery,
makes the sour and foul stomach sweet
-Itdoes for tho storaaehwhatthe washing-
and snn bath do for the churn—absolutely
removes every tainting or corrupting element* In this way It cores blotches,
pimples, eruptions, scrofulous swellings,
sores, or open eating ulcers and all
humors or diseases arising from bad blood.
If you havo bitter, nasty, foul taste In
your mouth, coated tongue, foul. breath,
are weak and easily tired, feci depressed
and despondent, have frequent headaches,
dizzy attacks, gnawing or distress in stomach, constipated or Irregular bowels, sour

The Calgary Daily Albertan of
December 13th, says' To say that
Sanford Dodge and his clever company of clever artists more than
surpassed themselves ia their interpretation ol Shakespeare's
groat love tragedy, "Borneo and
Juliet," at the Lyric theatre last
night would not be half express-
ing the opinion of the large audience which thronged the' popular
play house.
, As Borneo, Sanford Dodge waa
perfection, while Miss Louise Mar*
shall as Juliet deserves the highest eoonlums that can be be-
storved upon her, Throughout
this/ strong play, without one
singletexception, they bell their
audience entranced. This was especially noticeable in the balcony
scene in Act IX, and in the Tomb
scone in Act VII. So noticeable
was it at the conclusion of the
latter- scene, which* marks the
closing of the play, that it was
«nnr*>ri.f «»i»rtflrt« hi»for« **h* roofil*
tealised that the show was* over
so completely were tbey cuJiied
The scenery and costumes eie
also worthy of special mm tion,
and enough cannot be said of the
brilliant way in which the principal characters are backed up by
the other members of the [cast.
Sanford Dodge has made Shakespearian plays so popular in Calgary that future theatrical seasons will not seem complete unless he and his clever company
are numbered amonc- the attractions. Manager Willis deserves
thn hljf'hMt pr-nise for bringing
such talented artiots ant! such
high class plays to Calgary, To
be presented at the Opera house
on Thursday next, January 10.
