aiid all he could to assist the city.
Steam was got up at tbe mill, and the

states that at any time the city can |
have the same service. By buying"
1,000 feet of hose to connect with the

have excellent fire protection independent of the waterworks that have always been an aggravation in tbi_
badlv governed community.
In Fernie the coal company owns the
telephono system, the electric lis*_t
system, the water system and a few
others, besides all the coal mincB in
| that locality. The city wishes to put
in a first class wuter system and a sower
systein, but tho Crow's Nest Pass Coal
Co. does not wish to see the water
system installed, as it would put its own
little waterworks ont of business. At
this distance it would^eem to be a good
thing for Fernie if some one else than
the coal company owned at least a fe.w
of the public utilities in tbat -enterprising town.—Phoenix Pioneer,
Editor Lowery, of tho Fernie Ledoe,
has "been pouring hot shot into the
Crow's Nest Pass Coal Company. Thc
language used is particularly scathing.
A few more outbreaks of this character
should stir things up, and if words are
of any nse in putting sand into tho
Fernie business men, Editor Lowery
will tamp it into them It invariably
happens .that the more of a cinch a
monopoly bas, the more thev want.
Monopoly haa a tendency to intoxicate
with power the holders thereof. The
cinch should be broken.—Sandon Mining Standard.
A few more fires, and the people of
Fernie will be forced to admit that .they
made a .mistake in electing as merefbo.-s
of their city council men who are sub-
verient to the Crows Nest Pass Coal Co.
There can be no question as to the
status of Mayor Stork and a majority of
the council. They are partisans of the
coal company,and favor that company's
interests when they iu any way conflict
with the interests of the people of
Fernie. Fernie needs in office men
who will stand for the interests of the
the people first. Wero ruch men in
office to-day Fernie would be-building,
her own waterworks system. Tbe
Tribune does not advocate confiscation
of private interests. The private
owners of the existing waterworks
systein rshould be dealt with fairly.
They should'be offered a fair price for
their property, and a fair price is not
what it could be duplicated for, but
what the property earns as a business
proposition. If tbe existing -water
wor'k3 system is worth §20,000 as a
business proposition, the people of
Fernie can well afford to pay that price.
If worth more, pay it.   They she**-;—*

The Mayor and Council were full of
gush, hysterics and perhaps a little
cheap whiskey last Thursday when
they established a dangerous precedent
by giving one man a gold medal, when
so many were equally deserving, and
voting money to pay the firemen. In
the future dozens of men wiilnot work
at Fernie tires.
The gush and enthusiasm of these
akk-rin-inic .resolutions is merely to
curry favor with a public already cursing them witb tlie fervor of a Caliban.
It is a cheap way for our local inisleg-
islators lo throw a sop to an outraged

The case of the erown vs Joseph
Niederstadt   were   tried vesterd.iy
morning before Justices of Peace Ii
A.   Hill   and K.  D. Trevor.    Mr.
Niederstadt was chnrgrd with selling  beer at  his  brewery  to two
Ix-ys under IS years of age.    The
boys testified that they were under
18, and .that they had _botis.it anil
naid for the beer on the date mentioned.     Mr.   Niederstadt said that
he   was  busy at the time serving
others and did not pay any particular notice to thc bo\ s, bnt as soon as
he learned they was nnder age he
■warned   them   not to come again.
The justices alter weighing the evidence said that they would deal leniently with him and let him off with
thc costs of the case,  but cautioned
him against any further infraction
of the law.

lhe Victoria Times is to be,given
the opportunity of making good its
shameful allegations against Premier
McBride. or confessing to the character it has held for a long time, of the
champion slanderer of the province.
Notoriously, the allegations in the
article upon which tho Premier has
based his suit, are untrae. His government was conceived in treachery,
remarks tho Times, meaning thereby
no doubt that John" Oliver expected
to be a member of the new adrhinis-
tmtion, but was disappointed. Yet
only a few weeks or months before
the same John had participated in a
Liberal party convention declaring
for party government and ^solemnly
pledging everv member present to
abide by this decision. The Con&er-
tives also had adopted party lines.
There might have been cieuse for
avoiding the party decrees under the
circumstances;; but no leader, who
chose to abide by the decisions so
arrived at can be accusscd of treachvj
ery because he disappointed the per
sonal amlit'oh oi men not of his own
party whom circumstances had made
his mates in overthrowing the previous composite government.
As to the Fernie ballot box, the
other count in tne Times indictment,
the record .makes itquite plain that
the fault lay with the law, and not
with the government—the law, that
the government, overthrown by Mr.
McBride had passed. The -present
adminiolratign has had enacted an
amendment making a situation like
that developed in Fernie impossible
for the future. That there was" .anything wrong in Fernie, however,^ was
never demonstrated,; only charged,

.trouble with this systein is .that it some
-times leads to dishonesty. A rich
Englishman, the proprietor of 200 hacks,
on which his drivers are supposed to
pay him 50 per cent ol their takings,
told mc one day this incident:
"Ho said it was late in the afternoon,
and alie _•_* -resting on his couch in his
honor oflice. One-oi*his men came in,
and, not seeing the proprietor,' began
to divide up the money lie had earned
that day.
"The proprietor, as _e lay on the
couch, heard the chink of twins, and a
monotonous voice reciting ■
"A shilling for the master, and ono
for myself. A shilling for the master,
and one for myself. Another for myself. A shilling for the „iafit_r, and
one for myself. Another and another
and another for myself, A shilling for
ihe master, two for myself.'
"'So the master tiptoed to the door
and peeped thru. Two piles of coius
lay on tlie table, and llie pile in front of
„L_—river wus by far the larger.
" 'A shilling for the master,' the
man continued, 'and one for myself.
Another for myself.'
"And now, iinally, he came down to
it he last sixpence.    Willi this he did nol
know what to do.    Finally he laid it on
the master's pile, then on his own, andfj
Im repeated, over and over again :
■"•"Sixpence for me, or sixpence for
ihe master? Me, or the master* wJaich ?
Sixpence for the master, or sixpence
" 'Better let  me have it, Sum,'  he
said. "Vou know 1 keep the horses.'"

Winnipeg, Man.-r-A tone of confidence prevades the latest crop report
issued by the Canadian Pacific railway
today. The summary deals with '.Ingrowth of wheat and the weather conditions at all the principal points in the
Canadian wheat belt traversed by the
road. In tew instances are there indications of serious damage from any
During the past Week, however, the
very hot weather has caused severe
electrical storms, wliich iu sonic localities were accompanied by hail. Thc
damage from this cause is nol very
heavy, as none of the storms covered a
w ide area.
Wheat is heading out all over the
west and in some districts has attained
a height of three and a half feet. In a
few sections complaints are made lhat
the growth is too rank from excessive
moisture and heat, so thai thc grain
had lodged. Fanners say, however,
that it will come up again.
Hay is most abundant, in fact it will
be tiie heaviest crop ever taken from
the prairie meadows.
In several districts of Manitoba the
prediction is made that the wheal yield
cannot be less than twenty-five bushels
to the acre, which with the area under
crop ibis season would ensure a total
yield a.'. 80,000,000 bushels. Uetween
30,000 and 40,000 men from theoulside
will be re._uircd as laborers to lake off
thc crop, wliich will commence lo mature within two week1.. ll i* stated
lhat the crop is ten days ahead of thc
period when early fro-sts are lo lac expected.
