That Christmas in Kossland was
throughly enjoyed, no one who
spent the day in the city will deny.
Although the weather man did not
make his promise of sunny weather
good, as evidenced by the proceeding day, still the people were determined lo enjov the occasion in

All day long groups, young and
old alike, might have beeu seen
wending their way to the homes of
friends 10 partake of the good cheer
prevailing at every fireside, while
others secured much gratification
without leaving their own homes,
through ihe enjoyment of their
children at the customary appear-
of Santa Claus nnd the realization

Services were held in Ihe several
churches throughout thc cily, the
customary midnight mass service
being observed ul lhe Church of

Christmas exercises on Friday evening last. A large iree had been
erected, liberally bedecked wilh |
presents, and Ihcse were distributed
among Ihe children after a very
pleasing program of carols and recitations.
The Baptist church followed with
a Christmas boat on Monday even-
evening. In this the children also
took a prominent pari and were
duly awarded by Ihe ever obliging

The Methodist church held its
exercises 011 the evening ol   Christ

followed on Wednesday evening in
Dominion hall. Santa Clans was
present in both place, much to the
delight of the children.
The Church of the Sacred Heart
pleased the little ones of its flock
by causing the appearance of Santa
Clans at the Miners's Union hall,
Thursday evening. Prom his apparently inexhaustablc supply of
toys he had placed upon the tree
some memento for each little one,
which were distributed after a pleasing program of several numbers.

sources of the district already proven, there still   remains a large   field
for  profitable investment of capital
in the development  of yet unproven
claims.    This  capital   can   only be
obtained by making these   opportunities for  investment   known to the
mining   world.     The   city   council
should   co-operate  with  the Board
of Trade and the Chamber of Mines
in the   dissemination of information
regarding  our   mineral   resources.

I would  favor the  appropriation of

To the Elector, ol the City of Ku.sliu.il,
In response to a requisition signed by a majority   of   the   business
men    of   the    city   to    announce
myself     a     candidate     for      the
mayoralily      for     10,01,      I     desire "to outline  briefly the course it
would be my endeavor to persue in
civic administration.
The proven existence of immense
ore   bodies in   and  adjacent   to the
corporation limits assures the   rapid
growth and permanence of Rossland
as  a thriving city.    A  system ca-
p.il>le_of expansion  without alteration   with the   growth   of the  city
should be devised for every civic department.    Particularly  is this the
case  with   all  divisions   of   public-
works, so  that what  is done from
year to year will be the gradual development of a well conceived plan.
Easy  means ol  uccess  from   every
residential   district   to the   business
center and to  the   mines is of first
importance  requiring a liberal   policy, keeping   always in  view future '..      i————^————————————————.

n ■^™ ' franchises   being   always   kept   in
expenditure may not be found subsequently useless. Provision should
also be made that those who wish
street improvements can have the
same done on terms equitable lo all.
Petitions for public ^orks with
special "pulls" for particular expenditures should be discouraged,
but instead a fair regulation established under which the residents of
any section can demand their rights I
but can gel no more, thus eliminating to a great extent ward politics.
So far lhe expenditure on seweis
has returned no benefits. This
question of sewerage requires lo he
settled in a way that will meet the
needs of future vents. Immediate
action is necessary.
Especially must the city look
about to the matter of water supply and fire protect-on, providing
for the making of extensions at the

I am solicitous for the establishment of an excellent free library in
the quarters already provided. The
want ol this library has been much

and I will favor lhe mosl liberal expenditures upon it. A generous
policy should be adopted toward
I the erection and equipment of
schools so soon as they are taken
over by the city, which will probably be during this municipal  year.
In brief, I desire a policy of progress upon substantial lines, but
kept within the bounds of what Ihe
city's revenue will admit without
making taxation burdensome.
There are some matters of civic
moment net touched upon above,

Cartful apportioning in advance
of lhe year's revenue that ordinary

borrowed only for permanent improvements, such as will increase

borrowing, usually followed by lavish expenditure, has too frequently
burdened cities with fixed charges

Hours a Day the Demand tho
c.impuny Hef.ios,
! Every one ol tbe 300 car and
bain employes of the Seranton
Railroad company obeyed the strike
order, which went into effect at 5
o'clock Sunday morning, and as a
consequence only two cars were
run in all ol the I.ackawana valley
on that day. These two were
manned by Superintendent Patterson, a dispatcher, foremen and
clerks. No atttmp was made to
molest them, and, although ram fell
a great part of the day, the two
cars seldom bad a passenger.
The tied-up region extends from
Pittston to Forest City, a distance
of t° miles, and includes 65 miles
of track, on which are run ordinarily 80 cars. The men of the Wyoming Valley Traction company, operating all the lines south of Pittston
as far as Nanticoke, also threaten
10 go on strike. Witb both companies tied up there would be a total cessation of street car traffic in a
busy stretch of country Ho miles
north, including lhe four big cities
of hcranlon, Wilkesbaite, Pittston
und Carbondale.
The men demand 30 cents an
hour lor oid employes and from 15
to 171-." cents for new men. They

E. T. Bedford of the Standard
Oil company confirms the report
thai several large capitalists identified wilh that corporation are about
to organize a 83,000,000 glucose
company, to operate a large plant
at Seady Side, N. J., independently
of Ihe Glucose Sugar Refining company or any other company. "Thc
sole reason that we are going into
this enterprise," explained Mr. Bedford, "is lhal by means ol new pro-
processes we belie-ze that ue can
produce an article superior to any
upon the market."
The leading interests back ol the
new company are understood 10 be
H. H. Rogers, C. M. Prall,William
Rockefeller and B. T. Bedfoid.
Tbe new plant is lo have a capacity
of 20,000 bushels of corn a day, and
this may he doubled later. Thomas
Grant will have active charge of the
operation of (he new enterprise.
The fact lhal Ihe backers of the
new company selected .1 location in
thc east instead of near Ihe great
corn belt is viewed With much interest by local glucose men. It has
generally contended Ihat a western
location was preferable.
The cheap tales on corn Imm
Chicago, however, contrast sharply
with Ihe rale on glucose, and il is
claimed Ihat on local business Iha
advantage is rather in lavor of an
sisiirn plant. It would appear thai
tl.e new company will probably
leave ueslern markets alone and
devote ils energies 10 the local and
other nearby markets,and especially
lo building up an export trade.

One of Intense Interest Related by a Sage.
The Narrntor'ls So Aged thnt None
Dare Guess In What Year
He Was Born.
The Boundary section of British
Columbia abounds in legendary
lore, and of all Ihe stories still told
by the old men of the aboriginal
tribes around the cnmplire al night,
none is ol more tragic interest than
one related hy Skom-ne-lo, a lagt
ol' Ihe Colvilles, whose age no one
attempts to guess with any degiee
of accuracy, and who, when asked
concerning this subject, points to
an immense pine tree which grows
near his lodge and says, in his mixture or broken English and Chinook
jargon. "My son, I have seen Ihe
time whin my friend there and I
were thc same height, bill I was
stronger than he, for I could bend
him to lhe ground." I have spent
many an hour wilh the aged Indian,
leaning against thc pine while wc
both smoked my tobacco, and listening lo hia tales of adventure.
One night, after he hnd silently
wooed "Lady Nicotine" for upwards
of un hour, he laid his pipe aside
and aaid:
"My son, 1 will tell yon ol the
Blackfeet, and of how my tribe,who
have always been a peaceable people, defeated Ihe war pad)' from
beyond tho big hills—we nnd our
father, Toy-ebe. (Toy-c-be is the
Indian name for Keltic river.) It
was many years ago, before lhe
Hudtons Bay company brought
rifles and whisky lo us, before thc
white men came and stole our
women, leaving us smallpox nnd
boils in return, before Ihc priests
had shown us how lo go to hell.
The Blackfeet had big hunting
ground* off there where the tun
rises, but many days' journey from
this land. Their men were tall and
strong, and Iheir number was is
(he sand in lhe bed of Tov-e-K*.
Seldom did Ihey send a war party
ao far from home as to reach us,hul
sometimes a band of Iheir young
men would come inm ihc valley,
and then wc used lo fight, yea, we
could fighl in those days—before
wc had whisky and hell -for hnd
we nol our homes to preserve and
our women lo protecli'
..la. Ul. . 1   OU   11 al I i.
"One lime when the leaves bad
jusl begun lo die, 300 of Ihc Blackfeet braves passed to lhe north of
us through Ihc Kicking Horse pass
as fur as ihc O-kan-o-g.-.n. Thc
tribes in Ihc norlh hnd no lu-.nl-.
and thc Blackfeet took many scalps,
and ull Ihe food they wanted, hum-
ing lhe rest. They went through
the land as the goose Mies, like 11
wedge, with tlieir strong men in
front aud on thc wings, and their
wounded and prisoners in Ihc center. Tbey look enough prisonsrs
only lo carry Iheir fond, and would
loiture Ihem when Ihey returned to
Iheir own land: but wc Wtlt meni-
lul and gave them a qulcktl death
They came down llu- O-kaii-o-gan
lakes and across lhe lie lie trail lo
this river. Then they built CSOOtt
and came down toward US.
"I was a young RIM then, nnd
was thc fastest runner in my Iribc.
On Ihat day I Was hunting miuvitih
(deer) a long day's journey up the
river. I saw Ihc Blackfeet in their
canoes, and they were singing their
war songs and Idling how they had
vanquished every tribe Ihey had
met. But victory had made them
over proud and they were caiclcs*.
I knew Ihey would camp for Ihc
night belore coming lo thc lodges
of my tribe, but in Ihc morning
what would become of my ptoplf?
So I ran, and thc sun hunted his
tied in Ihe salt water no faster than
I hunted the lodge of my father.
Night came and I ran on, for I had
eyes in Ihc dark, and thc trail sped
under my feel wilh a soil, singing
sound The bushes kissed me in
the face and bade   mc   run   faster.
Ah, the woods were good to me in
those days. 1 stopped only for a
moment to bathe my lace in thc
river when I came to a ford, and to
drink a liltle of the cold watt'. So
in thc middle of the night 1 came
into my father's lodge and told him
what I had seen. My father was
chief of the tribe. He told me to
waken Ihe men, and while I was
gone he sat wilh his face in his
hands, thinking. When 1 returned
with all the men he came out of the
lodge, and his eyes shone, making
us all glad; for my father was very
wise, and we knew that his smile
meant death to our enemies and lift
to us,
l.i.*..I. 11   III   I..*.Hll.
"So in the early morning wa were
all hid in Ihe hushes by Ihe river in
front of Ten-as-ket's lodge, about
four hours' journey up the river,and
the women had all our canoes waiting about a mile below us. Soon
wc saw Ihe Blackfttt coming, and
they were not singing now, but
bending lo Iheir paddles and making the river foam. When they
came near us wc shouted our war
cry, and sent our arrows among
them like a cloud. Many fell into
th* water, hut Ihe rest paddled to
ilu* shore, lormed a wedge and
charged. Nothing could stand be-
fore that terrible wedge, and we
ran till we reached our canoes.
Then we paddled down the river as
last as iu' could,while Ihey returned
to Iheir canoes and gave chase.
You know the place about a day's
walk below here, where Toy-e-be
has cut a hole through the moun*
tain, where nothing can pass and
live, and wheic even big trees are
torn into splinters on thc rocks.
Well, when we came around the
bend nl lhe top of this canyon, we
pulled our canoes oul of Ihe water
and hid them in the bushes. Then
wc waited. Soon the Blackfeet
came along, Iheir canoes leaping
from Ihc walcr, so earnest were
Ihey in their determination to come
up wilh us. If ihey had not been
blinded by anger Ihey would have
seen the walcr on Ihe rocks where
we lifted our canoes out, but they
s;tti nothing, neither did they hear
lhe roar ol Toy-c-be as he lore
through the mountain. When they
had .ill entered Ihe gorge wc jumped
Irom lhe btlthtS .uul called them to
return. Bul Toy-e-be had them in
his grasp and he is stronger in his
wrath than any living thing. For
a moment Ihey struggled against
Ihc current, and then ihey disappeared.
"We wcnl over Ihe mountains as
fast as we could run, to where the
river comes out of ihc gorge, and
there, floating around in thc whirl-
pool were hits of canoes, and on the
rocks were some of thc men, hul no
one could tell lhal they hud ever
borne human shape, for they were
like jelly. We pushed them back
inlo the water,anu lei lhe river lake
Ihem down I..waul Ihe sea. Toy-e-
be had killed ihem, and lo Toy-e be
Ihey belonged. We look no icalps,
lor our father, the river, might be
angry il we look from him Ihc credit
of ihc victory.
"When the Bltckfttl sent out a
parly lo look for Iheir young nun
we were ready fm them, lor all thc
tribe- in this land came together,
and lew Bltckfttl ever returned lo
thc land of Iheir fathers. Kill i«l

His name is William Richardson,
and he hails from Alabama. Although only 17 years old, he was
one of the central figures in a dramatic episode or the civil war.
General Forrest, then little
known, even throughout thc Confederacy, in July, 1863, received
word the Federal troops under Gen.
t'ritlenden, who were at Murfree-
boro, Torty seven miles away, had
captured a valuable Confederate
spy, He moved quickly and wilh
1100 men completely surprised
Crittenden's force in the early morning killing many and taking many,
more prisoners.
Forrest arrived in time to release
the man he sought, a spy in the
army of Virginia, known only as
Mr. Paul. Paul and his boy companion had been told only a few
hours before thai they were going
to be hanged thc next morning.
Richardson, who had gone into
the Confederate army when 16 years
old, was no spy, but had been introduced lo Paul by relatives who
wanted In assist him in an effort to
return to the south. He had bicn
captured af'.er the first battle and
had been taken to Indiana. He made
his escape, got to Nashville, fell
in wilh Paul, of whose identity he
knew nothing, and was shortly
alterwards captured.
Paul's guilt was so clear Ihat all
of Richardson's efforts to explain
lo Ibe Federal authorities that he
was no spy were unavailable.

10000 Are Seeking

because he can go out on emergency
work that the women would be unable to do.
H, M. Walceman, in charge of the
Remington employment bureau, has
an average of 8000 applications for
places always on hand. Many of
these are from places outside of the
city. Many of ihem are from men
and women now employed but who
would make a change if profitable.
Mr. Wakeman says that to replace
women stenographers with men it
would be neceessary for employers
to hire their men away from other
employers, thus making place for
women somewhere else.
"As to salaries" said Mr. Wake-
man, "there is a difference of about
$25 a month between the pay ot a
man and a woman. You can get
a good women stenographer for
$10 to $1 2 a week and you can get
a good man for from $15 to $18 a
week. Few men stenographers in
commercial work get more than
$75 a month, ,-.nd $60 to $65 will
get first, class men.
"The supply of stenographers
has had much lo do with forcing1
salaries down from the $100 and
$125 mark of twenty years ago.
Business everywhere has been compelled lo adopt the typewriter for
thc reason that lypew ritten mail is
most likely to attract attention.
This fact has forced hundreds of
small concerns to use the machine
when otherwise their business does
not justify. These houses generally
employ girl stenographers who are
learning the work, paying them
$4 to $fi a week. These girls do
the work sufficiently well, and when
they become experts they are let
go and more new girls lake Iheir
places. This of course, has its
effect on salaries.
"I can imagine that a good wideawake man stenographer, receiving
dictation as to company business
lor a few years, would be in possession ol many details of the business that would make him of more
value to hi** employers somewhere
else. I mluikl think i.iilroad companies, especially, might find men
stenographers more valuable than
women for this one reason."

As noticed in the last issue, the
World has changed management.
And it will be noticed lb.it there is
alto a considerable change in ils
appearance. Prom a lour page
semi-weekly it has been deemed advisable lo change il to an eight-
page weekly. This in the eslim.i-
tion ol tha Miners' Union, under
whose control the paper is still being published, and lhe managers,
permitting of much belter opportunity In cover Ihe subjects necessary to promote h.- interests of organised labor generally.
But it is not ihe object ol the managers to stop at this. Due intention will be given to local happenings, socially and otherwise, and
an effort will be made to chronicle
such items of general new s as will
interest its readers. We wish to
make thc World a publication for
the home. We wish lo have every
home in Ibis vicinity receive one,
und when they receive it, we wish
further that it will be such a paper
as will meet their wants. Wc
inusi apologist for the apparent
lack of local news this week lor our
lime bus been taken upon witb
olher matter, always accompanying
a change such as will be noticed in
today issue.
Let us say right here howeier,
fiat thc aims of the World will be
as it has ever been, lhe upbuilding
of and in every way furthering
labor's cause. What has been accomplished in thc past in this
direction will in no lime wise tetard
the onward march, until the man
who labors will be recognized at
his true worth. None will gainsay
that much has already been accomplished in llritish Columbia in this
direction, but there is yet much to
do and in thc doing we will assist
lo llu- best of our ability.

be conlnued, md wishing one and
all 1 liappy and prosperous New

The year jusl passing, though it
has seen a considerable increase in
the shipments from Rossland camp,
has been chietly important as a
year of developments, Lack of
treatment facilities, and inadequate
mechanical equipments have hampered the big producers al every
turn. Vei the year's oot pul lor the
Camp will be about 230,000 tons.
With these shipments going on,
however, Ihere has been an increase
in Ihe possible producing capacity
ol the camp that leads to estimates
of 000,000 tons as the probable
production of IQOI, The equipping ol the big mines bas heen on
a scale equal to anything in the
west, and money has not been
spared in bringing everything up to
the most modern standard. Big
plans lor the increase of the smelter capacity on which the camp is
dependent are being carried out
and extensive schemes of development have been put through, giving
several mines immense ore bodies
with thousands of tons of ore ready
to be sloped as soon as ihe ore can
be treated. New ore bodies also
have been opened and properties
put iu a good condition to ship.
With such improvements well advanced, unlimited capital and lhe
best obtainable engineers and
geologists directing the work, an
immense increase in the yield of the
camp is assured. That the increase
will reach the magnificent figures
of the general estimate is probable.
Its doing so well speak for itstlf. —

Governor Pingree ol Michigan
has again tailed in his efforts lo secure Ihe passage through the state
legislature of an act taxing railroads
on the same basis and equally with
other taxable property. As on a
previous occasion an extra session
was called lor the purpose of such
effort, and, us before, the law failed of passage in Ihe senate. "Equa
taxation" does not seem lo be favored by Michigan senators, when
railroads arc considered, neither is
it favored in many cases wherein
iheir own interests are concerned.
But there is a lime coming, and we
believe it is uot in Ihe fur distance,
when such laws will be passed and
they will be inforced too. Governor Pingree has been one of Ihe
ftw'wh o have opposed trusts and
combinations of every nature since
assuming ollice four years ago and
in so doing has earned Ihe enmity
of all corporations doing business
in Ihat slute, and particular)' of the
railways. But no one will say lhal
taxation should not he equal ihat
all should nol pay Iheir first share
according to investment and income
to support the government under
which Ihey exist, and if such action
i- right il is a certainty that the
people will demand that Ihc right
prevails. There are many men
holding exalted positions who may
well pattern after Governor Ping'fe
in many things, and Ihc matter of
equal taxation is one of them. His
term of ollice expires with Ihe end
ol Ihe year and none regret it more
lhan the laboring class of Michigan.

Invention has filled the world
wilh competitors, not only of laborers, but of mechanics—mechanics
of the highest skill. Today the ordinary laborer i.s, for the most part,
a peg in the wheel. He works
with the tireless—he feeds the unsalable. When the monster stops,
the man is out of employment-
out of bread, lie has not saved
anything. The mechanic invention
was not for his benefit.
Some time ago I heard a man
say that it was impossible for good
mechanics to get employment, and
that, if his judgment, the government ought lo lumlth work for the
people. A few minutes alter I
heard another man say that he was
selling a patent for cutting out
clothes, that one of the machines
could do the work of twenty tailors,
and that only the week before I.e
had sold two to a great house in
New York, and that over forty cutters had been discharged.
On every side men are being
di-i hargrd and machines are being
invented lo take their places. When
a great lactory shuts down the
workers who inhabited it and gave
it lile as thoughts to the brain,
go away, it stands there like an
empty skull. A few workmen, by
the force of habit, gather about the
closed doors und broken wihdows
and talk about distress, the price
of lood and thc coming winter.
They are convinced Ihat they
haven't their share of whnl ihey
created. They feel certain lhal lhe

sion of lhe employer -but have
nothing themselves. The employer
seems 10 hnve enough, Kven when
employers fail, when they become
bankrupt, they ure far better oil
linn Iheir laborers ever were.
There worst is lhe toilers besl.
The capitalist comes forward with
his specific, lie ull- the working-
men tlu**. must be economical, and
yei, under lhe present system, economy would lessen wages.
Cndcr the greul law of supply
and demand, every saving, frugal,

eciouanly doing whal lillle he can

enough. Dots the great law demand thnt every worker should
live on the least possible amount
ol bread.- Is il hia fate to work
one day Ihat he may gel food
enough to be able lo work another?
Is Ihat to he his only hope thai
and death.*'
Capital has also claimed and Mill
claims Ihe right to combine. Manufacturers mcel and determine
prices, even in spile of supply and
demand.      Have   Ihe  laborer-* Ihc
chine?    Will the machine finally go
into partnership with the laborer?
Can these forces of tint lire be
controlled for the benefit of the
children? Will extravagance keep
pace with ingenuity? Will the
workman become intelligent and
strong enough to become the owners of machines? Will these gaints,
these titans, shorten or lengthen
the hours of labor? Will they
'.jive leisure to the industrious, or
will they make the rich richer or
the poor poorer? Is man involved
in lhe "general scheme" of things?
Is tlieir no pity, no mercy? Can man
become intelligent enough to be
generous, to be just, or does lhe
same law or lact control him as
controls the animal or vegetable
world? The great oak steals Ihe
sunlight from the smaller trees.
The strong animal devours lhe
weak everything at thc mercy of
the beak, and claw, and hoof, and
tOOth—of hand, and club, and
brain and greed—inequality, injustice everywhere. The poor horse
standing in the street wilh his dray,
overwork, ovcrwhipped and unfed,
when he sees horses groomed to
mirror, glistening wilh gold and
silver, scorning with proud feet the
very carlh, probably indulges in
the usual social reflections; and
(his same horse, worn and old, deserted by his master, turned into
thc dusty road, leans his head on
the topmost rail, looks at donkeys
in the field of clover and feels like
a nihilist.
In me day of cannibalism thc
strong devoured thc weak—actually ate their flesh. In spile of all
laws thai man has made, in spile
of all advances in science, thc
strong, the heartless, still live on
the weak, thc unfortunate, thc foolish. True, they do nol drink their
blood or cat their flesh, but they
live on their self-denial, Iheir
weiiriness nnd wanl. The poor
man who defends himself by toil,
who labors for his wife and children
tlm ugh all his anxious, barren,
wasted life—who goes to ihc grave
without ever having a luxury—has
been thc food for others. He has
been devoured by his fellow men.
Thc poor women, living in lhe bare
und lonely room, cheerless and
tireless, nighl and day, lo keep
starvation from her child is
slowly being cnlen by her fellow -
men. When I lake into consider-
.it..*.i the agony ol civilized life—
Ihc failures, Ihc anxiclies, the tears,
Ihc withered hopes, ihc billcr reali-
i.c-. the hunger, the crime, ihc humiliation nnd thc shame—I um almost forced to say that cannibalism,
alicr all, is lhe most merciful form
in which mnn can exi*>t.

a good hcurl lo be satisfied with

If lhe public owned the land and
did not employ people to work on
it, the land would he rented to the
users like school land now is all
over the nation where the spculator
has not been successful In having it
sold to them. Uut that would not
be socialism. I'lider socialism—national co-operation—the public
would not only own the land bul
Ihe machinery and would organize and operate them on the most
gigantic scale, such as the earth
has never seen. There would be
no renting of land, but thc citizens
who were employed in that department would work co-operatively,
as they now do for great corpora-
lions, except ihey would be their
own masters and make such regulations concerning their work as
seemed to Ihem would be fo* their
besl interests. 1 think thai when
such conditions arrive, that the
people of a nation engaged in
the agricultural pursuits would
nol, unless they preferred, live in
rural isolation. They would be
housed in cities and would go to
tbeir work on rapid triin-.its, which
would be cheaper (cost le-s labor)
than keeping up Ihe millions of
miles of road and hauling the products in wagons to points of demand, as is now done. No, socialism does not infer the renting
of land for tithing or money rent.
That would be a crude way, and
when people understand il batter
they will not apply crude and primitive methods,such as now in vogue.
The land will be used in thc same
way lhal railroads woulu be if the
public owned   and  operated   them.

is known belter to herself than to
any olher human being. She
claims to be engaged in a work of
humanity,but the ladies iii the city
where she is operating are pretty
firm in the belief that her work is
one of inhumanity.
There is perhaps no class of
workers in the world who are more
certain ol good treatment than a
capable girle who does housework.
The girl who gives satisfaction in
one place has a score of places open
to her. There are comparatively
so lew of them that if they join a
union Ihey can nume their own
terms of service. There is an opening in this line of business for
some lady who has "seen better
days" to ni'diate between mistresses and servants. Her first
step should be to teach willing girls
who have their own livings lo earn
how to make their services valuable. Some expenses would be attached to this branch of thc business, but this would readily be
borne by prospective employers. A
year of Instruction would fil an intelligent and willing girl to fill
almost any placs in o household in
which B professional cook was not
employed, The tours of instruction
should include what may be termed
the observance of the rights of both
mistresses and maid. While the
girls are being taught their "place"
Ihe ideas should be conveyed that
their place is an honorable one.
The selling of service does not imply servility, hul rather, h fine understanding ul mutual relations.

David   Allen   Wins $35,000
from Dawson Games.
HE SENT   OUT   $22,400.
Play One of   the Most   Remarkable of Record   Began with $2.50.
One of the must remarkable faro
bank plays of record was made
three weeks ago in Dawson by
David Allen, a Klondike passenger
ot lhe Steamer Dolphin, which ar-
rived yesterday from Lynn canal.
From .1 $.'.50 change* in Allen in
four days won 135,000, Two ol Ihe
houses in which he played hail lo
turn over their boxes, and two
others had enough ol his game.
During thc progress of his sensational play Allen had the good
sense to patronise another bank.
From the financial institutions of
D.i'vsun he purchased exchange in
various amounts, aggreg tting $..2,-
.(oo, which he mailed to his brother
on the outside. Light thousand
dolla-s of the money he used "in
slaking lhe gang," as Allen expressed il. That is, he gave his
sporting friends that much money
with which to play the bank themselves under the customary rules
of stake playing, to-wtt, hall ol the
money won and original capital to
go Io the man supplying the coin.
And it is worthy ol note that of the
score or more staked but one, "The
Examiner Kid," (William Culien),
won. Wilh money lurnished he-
won $4000 for himself and a like
amount for Allen. Then "The Examiner Kid," having payed $1,400
of debts, proceeded to plunge on his
own account and went broke.
Allen made another record in thai
he played Irom Saturday morning
until Wednesday about noon with-
with closing his e*yes in sleep.
"I ate very I'tlle," he said in telling of his phenomenal run of luck
yesterday at the Northern, " and
d rank jusl enough to keep me braced up i let the other fellows get
drunk over my good fortune. 1
kepi sober and did nol sleep a wink
until I reached the mouth of Indian
river, on my wn> out.
'■Beginning on Saturday, I played
almost without intermission until
Monday morning, when I found
thu! I was $14,000 lo thc good.
Then I look a breathing spell and a
vow thai I would quit Dawson wilh
at least $10,000. Accordingly I
purchused exchange lor ihat
amount ami mailed it lo my brother,
Meanwhile I engaged a dog team
and driver to be ready al a moments
noliee to bring me out. This done,
I concluded that I would make three
$.50 change-ins, and Ihat if I lost I
would conic al once. In-lead I
continued to win. Of cousre, I lost
many bets, Imi won more. They
gave mc a $445 and $50 Iiniii, and
some ol lhe games |jo and $100,
allowing uie to press the limit 011
the last turn. From the O'Brien
club I won tbOUl |SO,OC*0 at a continuous silling.    Tl.e Dominon   and
Savoy clubs losl 15,800 and 5,700,
rtspOCtivtly'    to    me,   and   I    won
smaller amounts .it other   times.
"Sieve O' Hrien and Hilly Jack
son run Ihe Savoy. They got a
sample of my singular luck. Once
il came a live card turn. There
was three deuces and a ten and a
queen in the box. The queen ami
ten were both coppers, with the
deuce a favoile play. Realizing the
chances of split, Jackson who sal
behind the hox, allowed me to play
lhe deuce for $450. I played Ihe
deuce wilh hint. It came quecii-
tlr.ii e, and I had Ihcqticcn coppered
for Stuo, so I won $350 on the
"The next time I laced Jackson
nnother five-card turn came. There
was three sixes, a jack and nine in
the box. I told Jackson Ihil I
wanted Io hcl a bunch on thc six
1.1 win. He asked me how much and
I :said ((OO. He hesitated and inquiringly looked up at his pardner
O'Hricn. The latter shook his
head, as much as to say hold him to
the limit. At that time I hud $500
on the six. with the jack and nine
both coppered for the limit, $50.
I took O'Brien's dissent forahunch,
knocked the coppers off the jack
and nine,cut down the six bet to $50
and coppered it. What did the
turn come? Well, nothing but six
jack. 1 won and the crowd ol rub*
bernacks cheered,"
Alter winning all the money in
the Dominion club drawet Allen
staked Louis Golden, the proprietor
to another bank roll. With "his
$5,700 winning from the Savoy that
game "turned over" ils box for the
night. The proprietors, Jackson
and O'Brien, did not longer care to
back the game, at least u nlil after
a bieathing spell.
Allen has had the usual tips and
downs ol a sporl. Leaving for the
Klondike iu tNijS he fell on the
Yukon and broke his leg 111
three places. Hard luck pursued
him after his arrival in Duvson.
He worked as a watchman, as a
porter in a club room and finally
brought up behind B faro box al
$20 a day. In und oul of season
he losl his wages against the game,
but each time with the observation
lhal if he ever won Ihe proprietors
would know they had a game.
I'M. Short, thc man who gave Allen
his first job as it dealer, i.s now in
Seattle sick at Providence hospital,
and an hour after Allen's arrival
found him in Short's   company.
Allen, as he came down the Dol-
dhin's gangplank, looked anyth'tig
but Ihe typical high-rolling gambler, lie eschews llashy dress, and
in personal appearance is anything
but a sport.    He   is 21   years   of

Order Issued from War Department.
Volunteers Have No Desire to Re
enlist fnr Philippine
The Secretary of War has cabled
instructions to General .McArthur at
Manila lo begin the work ol returning the volunteer troops I'i uni
Ihe Philippines in order In permit
ol tlieir discharge in this country
by June 30 next. This action
had been taken in anticipation of
lhe authorization by congress of
lhe enlistment of tegular regiments
to replace the recalled troops.
Plans for the organization of the
proposed new regiments have been
perfected ai the war department
and complete arrangements made
for their speedy recruitment and
equipment. Action in this matter
awaits on the approval of congress.
11 was hoped by Ihe seerelary of
war and Ihe military authorities that

army now before the senate would
become a law belore congress took
a recess for the holidays. The officials make no secret of Iheir great
Concern over the existing situation
and say that the lailure of congress
to take immediate nelion for its relict undoubtedly will result in con-
sider-tble embarrassment lo the
government and seriously retard
the execution of Ihe administration
policy for the establishment of an
efficient and stable government in
The opinion is expressed al thc
war department thai there is no
prospect of a general re enlistment
on the part of Ihc volunteers
in the Philippines. The records
of the department all tend to show
that only .1 small percentage of lhe
state troops are likely to serve be-
yond their pretend term of enlist-
menl. Officers serving wilh volunteer regiments in the Philippines
have been sounded on Ihe subject
and have reported a general disinclination on the part of the volunteers to prolong Iheir enlisted service. It is realized that a similar
slate ol affairs existed among the
state volunteers recruited during
the Spanish war. There were about
|6,000 ol these volunteers in the
Philippines when ihe volunteer regiments were mustered out at Ihe
close ol the Spanish war and of that
number only 7450 re-enlisted for
service in thc Philippines in Ihe
present volunteer army, notwithstanding the liberal inducements
offered by the government to that
end, including travel pay at once to
the amount of Sum lo each man
who enlisted.

The latt'ir, Llidwig Wurzburg,
proposed to introduce the principle

were so alarmed that the advidity

The pioneers in every movement
begun in the interest of humanity
have met opposition from all quarters including those in whose behalf
reform was neccessary.
People as a rule are wedded to
custom und slow to comprehend
the necessity for change. But once
the relorm idea becomes a fact none
are so loud in its praise, or so
ready to avail themselves of its advantages, or even to credit tin ill-
selves wilh having helped to bring it about, as some who
from Ihe beginning were its opponents.
Soil has heen wilh the ideas
advanced in thc labor movement.
In the various stages ol its progress
one reform after another has been
secured only through aggressive
and persistent agitation, yet no one
would now suggest thc surrender
of any of the ground gained. No
lubor reform idea met wilh stronger opposition than the one 10 reduce
ihe bonis of labor. But repeated
reductions have been made, nnd the
individual who would now seek a
return to long hour work days
would be considered crazy. We j
remember the time when a labor
union, if noticed nt all, was looked
upon with derision. Today it commands respect. Where bul it few
years ago there were in this country but .t small number of national
trades unions, some of Ihese
doubtful stability, today hutid*
reds ol strong national unions arc
affiliated with thc American Federation ol Labor, the great labor
army which has become u power
thai cannol be ignored.
The union overcame opposition.
Success won supporters for their
cause. But lhe task of trades
unions is far from being ended
On the contrary, il has scarcaly begun. The rapid changes Ihat constantly take place in our methods of
production requires conlined clforls
on tne part of the unions lo maintain the rights of their members.

The Centre Slar and War Kagle
works were closed down for Xmas
day only, so thai little time was lost
to either the management or lhe
men. Judging from the large number of carpenters still employed at
the Centre Star, it is apparent that
the company contemplates some
large addition. It has been rumored
that is their intention to start work
on the new concentrator which has
been heard ol lately in thc east.
Thc War Kagle, will begin to

it is the Intention to commence
shipments of ore on that date from
the 250 ft. level, from lhe old tunnel
through which all the substantial
dividends came to the old company.
The reason fo.' the output being
brought through this old level is
the tu 1.1I1..11I1111* is not,nor hns been
since lhe ore bins were bun.cd
down last spring, any way ol
handling lhe ore from the hig slmtt

been busy pulling down the foundation for Ihc new ore bin, which is
to be erected 10 lake thc place ol
Ihe one destroyed list spring The
site for the new bin is close beside
Ihe big shall house, which site is
an improvement over lhe olel one,
which was located about too yards
away from the .haft house, this
causing the inconvenience ol hand-
ling Ihe ore that distance in cars.
The new bin will be located -o
convenient that il will be possible
to put the ore from lhe skip right
inlo the bin wilh Ihe aid of .1 chute,
and thereby save the double handling lhal was necessary under Ihe
old system.

The members of the Local Union
of Rosalind Carpenters and Joiners No. 1, will hold a calibration
on lhe evening ol Friday, January
4. Thc occasion being the instillation ol new officers for thc coming
six months, a good lime is anticipated as the management of the social has been left in the hands of an
entrgetic committee. The r.ew
officers to br installed arc: Hayes,
prei.; Mcintosh.vice-prcs.; Mellon-
aid, financial-secretary; Adams,
corresponding-secretary; Neil McLean, treasurer.
T'he local union is in S v.-iy good
OOodUkm both HMD-rial and numerically lor this lime ol Ihe year (as
this is generally thc dull season for
building purposcsi in spite of tie
lact that veiy Marly a fourth ol the
members who were on the books
this lasi summer have left town.
Thi--past year has been the brightest
and busiest one from the carpenters
standpoint in the history of Rossland or the local union, owing to
the gigantic improvements around
the .mines, the Le Roi, Black
Bear, and Centre Star employing
upwards of too carpenters for several months. Much ctedit is due
to the present list of officers for the
success of '.he past six months, who
have managed the affairs of the
union In a careful, able and energetic manner, ll is to be hoped
that lhe new year which is the
dawning of the 20th century will
show even greater improvements around our banner mines and
more prosperity and success to all
concerned, Including the local union
of carpenters.
We were to busy to change our

a boiling point A few days ago .1
number ofcandidntes were mentioned for the majorulty, but the
contest in realilyseems 10 have been
left lo two, Mr. Har.y Daniels
and Mr. C. O   Lalonde.
Both these gentlemen are business men of high statidii g in the
city, whose honesty none have ever
questioned. The World, as lhe
representative of organized lab.ir,
knows nothing against either of lhe
candidates, but il will say this, that
Mr. Daniels, whose platform appears on another page and whose
requisition has been signed by a
large number of business men and
others, has at all limes been u
.inn friend of organized labor, and
will stand for election on his merits,
bearing lhe expense of his own
campaign. We can cite several
instances of his friendship, but reserve this for a future issue.
As wc said belore, »ve know
nothing against Mr. Lalonde. and
we will be pleased to state wherein
he has befriended labor unci will
give him all credit due. We will
mention things as we find them
and Ihe voters must he the   judges.
