THE TRACKMEN'S STRIKE.
Tht Committee ol Conciliation com
posed ol members ol the different
brotherhood! on the C.P.R , who went
to Montreal early latt week for the
purpose ol trying to effect a settlement
of the trackmen's ttrike, report, in a
j eiroultr letter to their lodges, that they
hare failed to reach an agreement.
Part of their report it as follows:
'Our services being acoepted by
both partial, we took up the duties of a
conciliation board. After teveral interview! had been held between the
I'boord of conciliation, theoompany and
committee representing the trackmen,
we succeeded in obtaining a basis of
tettlement which we believe to be
ba reasonable and fair under the present
condition of the strike tituation and
recommended that lt be accepted by
tbe trackmen, explaining to them that
the terms submitted were equal to
those obtained by any of tl.e otlier
organization! in their flnt .Sorts lo
obtain recognition. After the terms ot
tetilement had been fully explained to
tlle trackmen and a rote taken by
them, the following letter wat presented to the board of conciliation by the
chairman of the trackmen:
"Montreal, Aug. 15���Mr. Charles
Pope, Chairman of Conciliation Cs-iu-
iniitee: The terms of settlement pro
posed by tha General manager of tho
CP.lt. Company, through you.' oom
mitiee to tl.e committee representing
the Maintenance of Waymeii, is not
considered a fair balis ut settlement.
We believe a board of arbitration com-
pond ot lair-minded men would render
a decision mora favorable to tl.e men
wo represent than has been prepare I
by the general manager; therefore we
will request the members of the con
dilation committee to recommend that
the matter be settled by arbitration,
" Hoping it will bo continent with
thst views of the members of your com
snittee to comply with thit request, and
thanking you for the effortt made to
bring about a proper understanding
and fair settlement, we are very truly
yours,
(Signed) "J. Lennox, Chairman.
" A. F. Stobt, Secretary.
" We, as a board of conciliation, feel
that our duties as mediators have ended and that nothing further oan be
done by us unless President Wilson, of
ths B.K.T.O.A., will agree to leave the
olty within 24 hours and not to interfere in any way with either committee,
and will give authority to ths trackmen's committee to declare thetrike
oS, wbtn, In their judgment, a reason
able and fair bails of settlement oan be
effected."

Imperial Limited Derallstsl Near Hope.
Ko Fatalltls..
Saudi y's delayed Imperial Limited
ran iuto a fallen tree near Hope early
on Monday morning. Ai the obstruction was round a carve the engineer in
oharge of the train wat unable to tee
it until too late to avoid a collision,
tnd the engine and flnt four oan were
derailed as a result of the contact.
Fortunately no lots of life resulted,
and the Engineer, Fete Righter, was
the only man to sustain nny serious
injury; his leg being fractured a little
above tho ankle. Mail Clerk Allan,
who received a slight cut on the head,
was tl.e only other person injured.
The Company sent a special train and
two doctors to the spot directly the
news of the accident was received, and
at 6 o'clock on Monday evening, the
passengers, mail, etc., arrived at Vancouver on thu relief train. Pete Righter
was also brought down by Dr. Weld
to St Paul's Hospital. Pete Is one of
the oldest drivers on the line, and is
Very popular all along the line. At
every stopping place on the way to
Vancouver, a large number of Pete's
friends were waiting to know how
"Pete* was, and Lt the depot his
car was surrounded by those anxious
to be assured that their friend was not
in any danger.
During the evening Dr. Welti and
the surgeons in charge ot the injured
man found that the fracture was so
serious at to necessitate the amputation
of the left foot, which was removed
from about two inches above the ankle.
At a late hour the patient was reported to be progressing as well as could
bo expected. Many enquiries were
made at the Hospital and ot the officials
as to Pete's condition, as not only is
he an old engineer, but he also holds
the diatindhn ot having brought the
first train into Vanoouver.

THE HUNGRY HARVESTEHS.
Brandon, Aug. 17.���The harvest
excursionists who have failed, to secure
woik mado a demonstration here tonight. The meeting was hell in the
Station, when, a number of excursion-
ills made speeches. Tliey claimed that
they had been lured to'this country by
promises of big pny and lots of work,
and wheu they arrived here they found
neither. This was the thread ot the
story told by each. About 25 men
were then lined up by a young man
named Mitchell, a returned soldier.and
marched through the streets to the
residence ot Mayor Fraser. Ho was at
the City Hull, and there the excursionists met him and demanded food.
He gavi them an order (or meals.
There are several hundred excursionists in town, and apparently very
little demand for men, Many of ilie-.,-
young fellows have no money, aud
they have been sleeping under trees and
and in the station-house. Tho men
state freely thai they intend  taking
possession of tl.e passenger coaches,
compelling tho Canadian  Paciflo Rail
way to take them back home.

Capt. LaBlanc, pilot of the tteamer,
makes the following  statement concerning the wreck of the Islander: ���
Capt. LaBlanu aaya that he sent the*
watchman back to report nud asked1
how she wus making. The watchman
said, "She is filling."
Capt LaBlauc's account of the events
which followed is given in his owu
words by tlie Colonist ns follows:
"I realized that we must put tho
steamer ashort at once, and after ordering ths helm hard a-starboard I
rang for both engines to go full speed
ahead. As I did so, I told Capt Footu
that it was our only chance to put her
on tho beach. Capt. Foote did not
seem to realize the danger and he said
to me, "I dou't think we'll beach her
here, for the bssach i* too steep. We'll
run her back to Hilda Bay, and the
ship can be saved if we put her ou
there.'1
'Seeing at that time that the steamer
was settling duwnby the head, I urged
Capt Foote not to go to Hilda Bay,but
to beach the steamer right where she
was, which was about three quarter..
of a mile, or it may have besn u mile,
Irom shore, uu tl.e e.sst e..d of tl...
south shore uf Douglas l-.la.id. Capt.
Foote though, seemed to think that
the vessel might be ;_oi lo the better
beach at Hilda Bay, but thou seeing
for himself how the steamer was taking water, he ordered her to the beach
at once.
When he saw how she was settling
and he made uu his mind to go io
shore, so.eral minutes had beeu lost,
tor after I hr.d rung to the migtues lo
go full speed ahead, lltey 1.*,! been
stopped a^ain. Theu when Capt. Foots)
decided to pus. the vessel uti the be.iuu,

London, Aug. 15. -The waning let
sion of the Houss of Cumn-ous wnt
en', ironed today by a rigorous tilt be
tweeti Sir Wm. Vernon Harcourt (Liberal) and Mr Chnmlserhin, the colonial
se're.ary.over Lsjird KiioKtSner's p����-
clamasion.
Sir William charscterlxed it. at a
"iniiithievout document, the aspiration
ot neither Lord Kitchener nor Lord
Milner. but of the minittry ot Natal.*
He declared the Government lu arming
naiivet waa reverting to* a practice
which hail left thi darkott Main on
the history ot war between England
and Aintrict. The new policy ot the
Government promised to be neither
creditable nor effeotive and wat in
contravention ot all the fundamental
principles of the St Petersburg conven
tion. The oountry would weloome a
statement on the status of the war on
which they were spending ��5,000,000
a month although it wit declared end
ed at the cloie ol the last setsion.
l'3I.ONIAr. SBC1U5TA11Y  BEPI.IBS.
Mr Chamberlain said the war ttatus
was clearly indicated hy Lord Kitch
euei's weekly reports. He, himself had
gone out of the prophesying business,
but he assured the speaker that the
Government's attitude was the only
method ot ending the war. The colonial secretary declared that tho use ol
native troops was no new polioy. It
h.d been pursued without adverse
criticism. The Indian troops iu China
hnd been co operating with the troopt
ol five ot the highest civiliz'd powers.
Regarding the banishment of burghers
Mr Chamberlain laid Great Britain
had aright to enaot what laws she
chooses for the government of a country acquired by, conq-iest. Tne Boers
must be taught that they cannot longer
carry on 11 guerilla warfare at no personal risk while Great Britain fed thsir
women and ohlldren. He compared the
conditions In South Africa and the
Philippines and said ti.e polioy of
America as del.rcd byGeneral Me-
Ailhur's proclamation would certainly
he lhe policy uf Great Britain if the
campaign degenerates into a war of
banditti. Rxgni'ding the,devastation
policy Mr. Chnmh rlnin said it was
nothing compared with General SI.er*
man's campaign. He htd talked with
Gen. Sherman himself and Sherman
justified his action on the ground of
humanity; Mr Chamberlain also said
there wat no foundation trr the report
that Lord Kitchener was coming home
.un.  ASQUiTii.
Mr Aaquith denies thai there waa
any question of internalionnl law involved iu Lord Kitchener' 1 proclam
alion. The people of these territories
are both dejjure and dofuolo. the King's
tubjectt, ho continued, and the pro
clamatlon it-a warning on lhe line! ol
ihe option.given to the inhabitant! ol
Alsace-Lorraine at the -end ol Ihe
Fi'anco-Cermtn'Wnr.
Mr Balfour, replying declared that
not a horse or a man would be withdrawn from. South Afrioa unleit the
military situation justified it, but tint
the Government had every reason lo
hope 011 ibe reassembling of the parliament next year Ihey would find
warlike opeartlons in South Africa

There isn't a man who would lie seed
running tlirrsugli the street munching a

would mean dyspepsia and ttomach

many a business mon snatches a lunch
in tuch a hurry that lie might es well
take it on ��the run. That is one reason
for the prevailing "stomach trouble"
among men of business.

"My first intimation ot an accident
was, the running of passengers on the
deck which woke me up. I WM in a
cabiti with Mr Naughten, I got up
and went out of the cabin and taw thej
steamer linking at the bow. I awoke
tuy partner and we dressed. By thii
time the was still lower in th* water.
At the lime I got out of the cabin the
water was abreast of the smoking room
floor. I went up on the uprer deck,
followed hy my pari ner. I saw the
boat* wire gone and I went to a tall
hanging davit. By ihia time only the
stern was otit of the water, i sawn
raft in the water wilh eight or leu
people on it. I slid down the rope and
ou to the n.ft nud as soon ns I got on
the stern of the steamer sank nnd
sucked the raft and people down. We
were tome time nniler water, but I
held on tin.I when it came itjs onlj two
of ua were led. We hail.d two men
who were swimming nnd got ihem
aboard, also a Chinaman. By this
time the steamer hud sunk out tit light.
Many people, hung onto tho raft at
different timet, but it wai uot air

hour of every day the mail bag is paoleed
with words which waken love ami laugh
ter, and words which deepen the furrov,
.la the cheek and diui tlte failing sigh',
with bitter tears.
Eut with nil this there .is going or.
through the mall service a dissemination of human knowledge, a reaching
out of human help which is one or the
crowning blessings of our century. The
correspondence schools led by Chautauqua, are sending to every village and
Camlet the broader knowledge which is
to eagerly craved l.y many who are shut
in to the homely duties of a hutnblt
life. Without the mail system this plai
of education wonld be impracticable.
Every mail, too, carries from tlie great
centers, tlie advice of great physio-ant-'
which it would be impossible for tit
distant public to obtain were it not fo
the  mails.    Few people  realize   hov
many thousand people depend on lit
mail service for medical treatment.   N's,
long ago when some postal affairs wer,
beinjr discussed in connection with th..
erection of the new postoffice bitlldlnr
in Buffalo, N. Y��� some light wos throwt:
on this subject by the statement thai
the mail bj. Dr. R V. I'ierce ainounter
daily to something over  1,500 pieces
Of course this is not a common case, be
cause Iir. Pierce's relation as chief con
suiting physician to ��� EuiTulo's famous
���institution.'The Invalids' Hotel end Stir-
gical Institute, makes his advice ami
that of his rtaff of nearly a score o,
���killed and experienced specialists mud'
���ought after, especially by women, I,
the treatment and cure of whose speci.i,
diseases Dr. Pierce has deroted ova
-liirty years of almost constant labor.
But though this example is out of the
ordinary, it may serve as an evidence ot
the amazing benefits reaped by the pub
lie from the mail service;   It jnits every
outlying hamlet in touch with tlie most
advanced medical specialism of thedtiy
It gives at a cost of n two-cent stomp,
tiie skill and experience that it bus takei:
years to acquire.    Literally at the cost
bf a two-rent  stamp, since Dr. Pierce
Invites sick women to consult bim by
letter without charge.    And this would
stein to he one of tlie most remarkable
tervices rendered by the postal system,
p, rliapt the stipr.-me service of all.   Por
wliilc it it a splendid thing to be able tb
shop in New Vork while living In Kan-
ms, and a grand thing to be able to
command the learning of great professors while working in the Michigan
woods, it is a still grander thing that by
means of this' cheaply supplied service,
men like Dr. Pierce, who have the disposition te be helpful, tre enabled to

reoently Dr, Garvin found n number ol
the bullets missing from tha little tin box
In which he keept thom nnd hat never

names of the persons upon whom ho has
operated. Ho cited an instanco whore a

ball wos taken out at the ankle.
One bullet had been flattened from tht

A young mechanic named Fred Greely, started from Vancouver on Sunday
fur Winnipeg on a bicycle. His trip
is a novel one, and will be made along
the C. P. R. track, in less than three
weeks. Greely has a patent fixture to
his bicycle, somewhat similar to a railway velocipede, except that the third
wheel, extending to the further track,
has a flange on both sides, and practically makes the track ruu in a groove
in the wheel. He rides slong on the
traok and expects to make at least 150

Football C Ink's Dance.
The First Annual Ball held in Columbia Hall by the Uolden Junior
Football Club proved a success in every
evory way, and the boys are to be congratulated upon the way in which
everything was provided for llie com-
fort and accomodation ol Ihe dancers.
Tho hall was prettily decorated wilh
flags and red, while and blue bunting,
while the stage was made into a cozy
corner by the young ladies to whom
great credit ia due also for the refreshments which thev provided.
There were upwards of sixty couples
present*aud when the dance broke up
at 2 o'clock, everyone went away well
pleased and expressed a desire for the
Victorias to -'do it again." Miss Jennie Wells acted ns pianist to the satisfaction of all, with MrC. A. Warren
as floor minagor. Mr Gibb rendered
hs setv.ces at the piano in a couple of
extras.
The juniors intended going to Revelstoke on Labor Day, to try, tor the
third time, to bre.ik tho tie existing
between the two teams, but word has
been received fiom the juriors of tliat
town, saying that 1'iev cannot raise
the money to keep the boys while
there, so it has h-ten decided to challenge a loci team to play the Victorias
on the 2nd of September, when the
boys will give the citizms of Gulden
another treat in the way of athletic
sports besides the football match.
They are arranging a pro'ramine of
sports, whioh will include foot aud
bicycle races for girls and boys sack
iioa, three-legged race and tests with
the foo-.bs.il. As tii.s is some m ire ot
the Victorias work, il is bound to prove
a success.

PallUer Pabulum
From Our Own Cwresnondent.
Palliser, August 21���The failure ot
government by parties, ns in Canada,
the Old Country and other civilised
nations, has caused this publication ot
a lot cf literature advocating radical
changes and reforms in the administration of publio affairs. It it pointed
out that party government, with all it*
rivalrvs jealousy, and international
strivings, expends fat too muoh energy
and vitality in offensive and defensive
operations that have no bearing tor the
permanent good nnd stability of the
Oountry. A man has only to look
about him and read the paper* tu bt
Impressed with the necessity for reform. For instance, Ottawa authorities
framed the alien labor law a (ew years
ago, today it is openly violated by th*
C.P.R. in the present trackmen's strike
by importing foreigner* from thn
United States. This law is an utter
failure, because the vary Government
that passed it has not. the courage to
enforce it. In England there is n law
for tbe peer and another for the peasant, as witness the recent trial of a
nobleman by lords instead ol n trial by
jury in the regularly constituted court*
ot the country. This criminal was not
treated as Jabei Bailout or Hoolsiy beoause ol his noble (?) and titled pedigree. In some o( the United States
where justice cannot be obtained the
people were driven to the extremity ot
being a law unto t hemsolves - hence
there is lynch law with a vengence.
There ia nothing that breeds discontent so readily aa the partial administration o( jitstice-in making fish of
one and flesh of another. Irrespective
of position, person, or corporation the
law was made for all alike, and the
Government that makes any deviation
from this fundamental priuciple.is
signing its own death warrant and
iaclulating a spirit ot rebellion in the
people. The manual laborer of today
has enough to harass and irritate him
in his struggle lor daily bread without
having the law administered in ft discriminating manner agaiust htm, and
the Government that leagues with railway or trust lu oppression ol the poor
is ooinmitiln-i a sin that will bring in
its train a swift and dire reward.
As aii illustration of the, tactics o(
some C. P.R. officials, in tbeir efforts to
secure men to take the place o( striking
bridgemeu, eight men wer* induced
through misrepresentation to leave
New Brunswick,'where ihey were em-
jsloyed on bridge work and come to
Britisli Columbia. They were told
there was no strike ol bridgetnen here,
and were guarantees! three month*'
work and a free pass baok home it
they would accept. On Arriving nt
Field their tickets were collected and
they were told to begin work on Otter
mil bridge. Meanwhile the men learned ot lho bridgetnen's strike nnd on
arriving at Ottertail manfully refused
to become scabs, and so informed the
foreman. In thi* inttancethe grossest
deception was used to lure these men.

ment there, whioh conduct is deserving
of th* severest censure i( not o( pro**
