The Kootonay Valleys Company havo
for sale some 20,000 acres of land ir. the
Kootenay valley. This valley lies between Canal Flat, near the source of
the Columbia River and the International Boundary, a distance of about 200
miles, varying in width from 5 to 15
These lands wero carefully selepted
upon the formation of tho company, before tbe pouiitry was opened up for settlement and the railway companies had
located their grants and are therefore
among the choicest in the valley.
Generally speaking, this valley has
been described as "ono of tbe prettiest
and most favored in the province, having good grass and soil, a fine climate,
established mines, excellent waterways
and aq easy surface for road making
Several cattle ranches and mixed
farms have already been established in
the valley and have proved successful
while a large part of the valley is also
adapted to fruit raising.
The lower lands have a luxuriant
growth of grass, and the upper benches
which are mostly covered with open
scattered timber, afford good shelter and
feed for cattle and horses.
The soil in the upper oenches, through
out the valley is generally light and
sandy, but the manv creeks falling into
the Kootenay River afford easy means
of irrigation, which, where it has been
adapted, has given * excellent results.
In tho bottom lands the soil is heavy
and well suited for raising grain and
Oats, hay and roots of all kiniis grow
to perfection in this valley, while apples
plums, cherries and -.mall fruits are being successfully mieed, but it is not
adapted for wheat growing.
Tho local markets are already established. The towns of Fernie, Morris-
sey, Cranbrook, centres of coal and
other mining and of the lumber trade,
aro rapidly increasing in population ami
readily lake all the 'p-oducu tbat hae
been tjaisod in the valley. There is an
increasing -Jcmand for all the hay and
oats that can bo produced, and logs,
ties and mining timber are readily purchased by tho saw mills, railway com
panics and mining companies. Upon
several ofthe company's blocks thoro Is
enough standing timber tc, pay for thc
cost of the laud.
At the samo timo, this valley is olmost

district of British Columbia and the

The following account of the hockey
matchesiin which the Fernie boys played
is taken from the Rossland Miner:
The Rossland team was put out of
the championship hockey tournament
last evening by the Fernie seven, tbe
score for the game standing at live to
three in favor of the aggregation from
the coal miuing town.   It must be said
that the   visiting team is a splendid
one, that there was not a weak point
in it, that the forwards, the defense
and the goal keeper were all good, and
that the players worked together as au
almost   perfect  unit   in   combination
playing, and under such circumstances
it was no great disgrace to be beaten.
On the other hand tho home team was
unlucky in its shooting.   Hood, for instance, twice hit tha right hand pole of
the goal and had the puck gone the
other way on both occasions he wonld
have scored,   *5orae of the other players in the Rossland team had equally
bad luck in shooting, misBing -the goal
by a few inches, by either goiug over it
or to one'side.   There tvore times when
the home talent, discouraged by the fortunes of the game going against them,
indulged.In rough play.. Kastuerwas
struck on the right leg by a hockey-
stick so bard tbat for a time the surgeon who attended to bis injury in the
dresMng room  thought tbo limb was
fractured.   Qf course  there  were   reprisals on the part of Feruio, and at
times the gamo was rouj-her than it
should have been.   The playing was
very rapid and waBgood lively hockey,
eo good that the large audience, which
must  baye   numbered    1200   people,
cheered and shouted itself hoarse.   In
fact the applause was almost continuous during the game, .
IJowarth, Wilson, Hood and Mc-
Creary played well for the home team.
The visitors pUyed an even game, but
Kastner was evidently their star.
Iu the first half tho game started off
like a cannon shot, and tbe puck was
kept moving aud in the air a considerable part o( the time.   After a minute
of strenuous playing Smith made the
first goal for Fernie.   Then there en-
laued a titanic struggle to score, and
the playing was of the  most intense
| sort until Wilson scored for Rossland in
three minutes, evening the ecore. .Smith
of Fernio put his team one goal ahead
by scoring four minutes later, and the
rootera for tho coal mining town went
into  the  air,  so  pleased were they
home defense got busy and played a
strong    aggrassBivo     and     defensive
game, and it was twelve minutes before Fernie again placed the puck in
tho netting, which was neatly done by
Fraser.   Hood made two tries of lifts
from within thirty feet of the goal aud
struck in both instances the outer edge
of the right goal post.   The Rossland
rooters   shouted  "hard  luck* but try-
again."   Wilson also shot.direct on the
goal from center Held and  was blocked
by Dal.nago, who played point (or Fernio. Howarth and Griorson had equally
bad luck with tho two or three shots for
tho goal which they essayed,
After twelve minutes of speedy and
eood play Marlin of Feruio scored.
Shortly after this Frasor of Feruio
broke his skato and it took three
minutes to replace it. Then playing
was resumed, and in eight minutes
Martin of Pernio put tho puck in tho
goal. Tno remainder of tho first half
was full of excltoiuont Howarth and
Hood did some spectacular playing, but
failed to score, and the game stood -1 to
1 at the end of tho first half.     **    -
The second half was as full of interest
as tbo lirst. In this portion of the
game Rossland scored twice and Fernie
once, but tho loud obtained by Fernie
iu tho first half could not bu overcome
In oue minute after timo was called for
tho second half Hood was carried off the
ico. Ilo ran into the (encu as if lie
wore shot from a catapult, and he ivas
badly hurt.
A t-crlnunngo which extended from
0110 goal to the other was kept up for
threo minutes, and in this period the
Hpot'd was m rapid ns it was in tho
fastest part of the first half. Them
was some wild shooting during this
period on tho part of both teams.  After
manded by the referee, rheii H-.nd
broke bis bocke-y stick and l,-.lt the ice.
After a few minutes Kastin-r s leg was
again hurt,' .and an .lutcrini>.,if.n was
taken of several minute" to allow nim
to recover. The final st-on- ol tho ga.,,..
was made by Martin of rerun-. Hay

home team gallantly tried to retrieve
its lost fortune,* but could imt again
score. At the close the;nore stood 5 to
3 in favor of Fernie.
Nelson last night..pr^ed its title to
the championship of Briti.h Columbia
in the final game ot the; l.-.cki-y tourna-
ment by defeating the Fernio team by
a score of seven to-four. There weie
nearly "wo thousand; people 111 the
ekating rink, and there were none who
wero uot willing to admit that it wa,

has been played this wa:.o,i iu the

In the event of a clianse in the
government at Victoria, the member
for Fernie is spoken of as slated for a
portfolio. East Kootenay is entitled
to representation in the government,
and in ability Mr. Ross will compart-
favorably with any of $he cabinet,
but it ia not probable he will be
caught by the bait throw**, out by a
few place hunters, andv'bolt" from a
leader whom lie was elected to support. Should changes in tbe cabinet
become necessary, Fernie, the most
itiVpoiiu*ft{; mining and lumber district

From the opposition press of the
province it is learned that there is
a movement among (lie Coi.servative
members of the house to force Mc-
Bride out of the uremiership and pat
Cotton in his place.   Why tho reports
of tliis dissatisfaction,  or rather re
y.oh, of the Tory members should appear only in the Grit press it is difficult to understand.   It will he re
racmbered tbat it was under the
leadership o( McBrJde that the Conservatives carried the province, and
a change in the leadership, without
the consent of tlio  premier or the
people, could not be considered in ac
cord with the* -.Vishes of the party.
Thero is no doubt as to the ability of
Mr. Cotton, who is spoken of as the
successor.'to Mr. McBride, but would
the party support' Mr. Cotton in an
appeal to tho country? 'flie olectors
failed to do so a few years ago    Mr.
Cotton's   ability  and  Mr.   Cotton's
jwpulartty are two dlttercQUJiingfj.
There is nothing small aboul- tbe
railway commission. Tho auditor*
general's report has given the St.
aJohirSiin au opportunity of looking
into the cost of this body. It llnds
that the auditor's report covers thc
yrflt liye'ipbiijbs of tbo cost of the
commission, with 'some of tlio pre-'
llmlnary expenses. In addition to
the salaries of  tho   chairman   at
1 $10,003, and the other commissioners
at $8,000, there is a secretary with
the familiar name of Cartwright,
who receives §3,000 a year, an assistant secretary at $l,fc»00, a mes§en-
gcivat $700, and two stenographers
at $1)00 each. A. G. Blair, junior,
was paid §375 for 45 days' services,
20days' professional, work concerning railway accidents at §25 per day,
and 25 days at $15 collecting authorities and making up reports.
Thei;e was a bill for $1,511 for stenographers additional to the staff, $1,225
for sundries, $877 for books, and
$1,595 for stationery. Under tlie
head of "official cars" there is a
charge of §21,312, The new car
Acadia cost $20,800. Before the commission was formally established,
Mr. Blair was twenty-five days in
the United States making inquiry
and investigation into the working of
the railway commissions and interstate commissions. For this he received SaQ per day and expenses.
Aud for three months the institution
has been doing nothing but spending
public money. A great deal of the
work for .which the country paid
dearly has gone for nothing, owing
to ll.p sudden retirement of Mr.
Blair. The government says it has
nothing to explain jn connection
with Mr. B'air's resignation and the
alleged conspiracy. It might ex
plain why it paid him thousands of
dollars forwork which he never performed, or left in such an unfinished
state^asto make it useless.—Winnipeg Tribune. _.
All Battles Soldiers' Battles.
George Meredith, whose commanding figure is almost ihe last survival
of the literary giants of the Victorian
age, in tho course'ot an interview,
has given his views on current topics
of the day. Speaking of the Japanese, he, said: "They are a people
' capable of great ideas and exact
' mastery of detail. They have known
what to do and have never botched
or muddled. Besides, they are an
artistic people, full of invention. The
English people have little real love
of nature. The highest English
ideal oibeaftty in nature is a southerly wind and 'the cloudy sky that
proclaim the; hunting morning. In
regard to defeat of a European nation by Asiatics, that does not trouble
rae in the least. Their natures will
give freer play for the best to win,
We think of the Russian chiefly as
dogged, but Inkerman was always a
mystery to me. Ii the Russians were
really dogged and wanted to come
on, I cannot believe that the fellows
of .the foolish class our officers are
drawn from .could have defeated
tbem. Of course, it has been called
especially a soldiers' battle. All our
(battles are soldiers' battles. Our
army will remain in chaos so long as
it is controlled by a singularly unin ,
tellectual, ill-educated, unbusincss j
like class. With their Buddhism,
self-ilevotion JTrestraint, fearlessness
of death, and artistic sense, it may
well be thitt the Japanese are a more
valuable race from nature's point of
view than tho Russians." Referring
to the recent outcry against pagan
London, Mr. Meredith said: "It is
curious that forty years ago 1 had to
give up going to church because I
could no longer listen to the nonsense
I heard spoken there. The parsons
were worse than tho uneducated.
Thc deadly monotony of a Sunday
6ermon is constant and should have
episcopal supervision. The church,
iike the army, is now a chaos of men
without overseers. The clergy are
drawn from the same narrow, incompetent class as tho officers." Talking
of foreign affairs, Mr. Meredith declared that in speaking of a foreign]
nation vyc always try to realize what
itbaajdono for the world. "Take
America," ho said. "She haa been
the shrewdest leader of men. She
has given us Emerson,, that very
jjreat writer. Americans havo en-
Idowcdtho world with priceless in.
vontion3 and a promise of great
things to bo expected from them, and

people, bat aro very young people

has been rather too large  for them.''
mo to cry for ten minutes, and nobody hurt, either, would you? Well,
I did, and I can almost cry every
time I think ot it.
I was running along pretty lively
one afternoon when I approached a
little village where the track cuts
through the streets.* I slackened up
up a little,, but was still making good
speed, when suddenly, aliout twenty
rods ahead of me, a little «iri not
more than three years old toddled
onto the" track. It was impossible to
stop or even check much at that distance, S3 the train was heavy and
the grade descending. In ten
seconds it would be all over; and
aftep reversing and applying the
brake, I shut my eyes. I didn't
want to see any more.
As we slowed down my fireman
stuck his head cut of the cab window
io see wbat I'd stopped for, when he
laughed and shouted at me: "Jim
look here!" Hooked, and there was
a hig, black, Newfoundland dog
holding the little girl in his mouth,
leisurely walking towards the house
where she evidently belonged. She
was kickim,' and crying, so that I
knew she wasn't hurt, and the dog
had saved her. My ijreman thought
it funny, 'and kept laughing, but I
cried like a woman. I just couldn't
help it. I had a little girl of my own
at home.—Galveston Tribune.

Burglary and Higher Finance.
Isn't the Chadwick case a striking
ing illusion of the higher finance, the
Wall street method, and wiles of tlie
promoter and the^devioo.3 ways by
which the graduates of the 'school of
getting rich make millions without
rendering an iquivuient.
"Honest" burglary is. no longer a
money-making trade. Here and
there a bandit holds up a train and
gets a few thousands, or,   perhaps a
system full of laden  pellets: The
hold-up man still prospers bat humanity is becoming wise and no
longer carries money in largeamouhts
The bank burglar is confronted by
electric alarms and dynamite proof
vaults and vij-ilent watchmen, and
finds his trade prac;ically gone.
Against all the ordinary methods
money has been practically protected.
And so it has been left to Mrs
Chadwick and theso of hor ilk to
match brains to brains; to prove tha
while money may not be forced from
its place in the strong box, it can be
coaxed out by a simplo method of
making financiers believe that which
has.little or no value Is valuable.
There you have the Wall street
method-the promoter method.
If Mrs. Chadwick had gone to those
men ot means with a proposition to
take stock in a rubber plantation In

gold mining proposition in thn Black

Once sho gave her favorite poodle

and several charges of forgery have
been entered against her. The correct definition, ot 'swoll" is a-foolish
display and waste of money, and it
is quite noticeable that the very

Another fond tradition is shattered,
and the amateur mec'.ical observer
has one less ailment to'prate about.
Dr. W. Gilinan Tholnpson declares
in tiie Medical Record that gout is
not confined to the overfed idlers; is
found among poor laborers; -is not
caused by high living, and, in fact,
there is now no real old-fashioned
gout ac all. He would havo the sufferer who thinks gout is in evidence
cut from his diet sugar, alcohol and
red meat for two or three weeks,
getting down to thc simplest hygienic
rules and plenty of cold water.
A Missourian has introduced a bill
in thc legislature to punish by fjno of
$500 every man who tips a waiter at
hotel or restaurant This bill should
pas3 and then every legislature on
the continent should adopt it with an
amendment adding Pullman car
porters to the list. The tipping nuisance is one that should be abated.
No good reason can be given why
hotel proprietors and Pullman car
conductors should not pay their help.
Thirty.two years aj-o the Standard
Oil Company.was an Ohio corporation,
with a million dollar capital, having n
daily capacity for refining 1500 barrols
of crude oil. The Standard Oil Company of today is a Naw Jersey corpor-i-
tion which cootrols 90 per cent of the
eastorn oil production It hiakus.twenty-one and one half million barrels out
Of twenty-four million barrels of petroleum products made In this country. Its
receipts are enormous. For five years
its annual dividends have averaged
about forty-five million dollars, or nearly 50 per cent on its capitalization—a
sum which, capitalized at 5 per cent
would bo 900 milllnn dollars?
By a series of tests conducted in his
garden, a gentleman has discovered the
answer to the conundrum: "What becomes of plus?" Ho has found that pins
arc re'solued into dust. Hair pins which
he watched for 15t days, disappeared
by riiiting; away at the end ot that time
Bright pins took noarly.elghteeii mouths

tho end of fifteen mouths tisd nearly
gone, while their wooden holders were
still intact.
In a new process, carbon for hardening iron and steel is obtained from carbides ond certain fluxes. A mixture of
silicurja carbide and aodium sulphate,
for example, is applied to the cold metal
and then heated to.redness with it, the
reaction being bo rapid that an eight
inch steelo plate.is made, to resist the
best tempered tools off one sipe, while
tho other side remains wholly soft.
The first cement copper was produced
in Spain at Rio Tinto ia 1752 from heaps
of low grade sulphide ore tba,t had undergone decomposition through natural
process. The copper was leached out
by water, tho metal being precipitated
on iron. It was first thought to bo
merely, a coating on the iron, bat it was
found that if left long enough the replacement became practilly complete.

£j".Thc judicial  attitude   toward   labor
J legislation is a matterof no  little   im
.„ .portaiiee,  for,  paradoxical   though   k
.,. -nay seem, there can be no-doubt, thai
j.: wii   are in llie main' governed  by', our
.■... courts and not by our 'legislatures. .This
•statement, which is more or less line in
every ■country, is especially true in   the
,  United States, where every   statute is
. required to run the gauntlet   of constitutional criticism.    The Judge, in  the
' history ofthe world, long antedated the
legislature.     The   father   despotically
'  settled the quarrels of his children, llie
■ ■ chief of his followers,   the king   of  his
,' subjects.TliesearliilersiiirenJeringilieii"
' judgements oo doubt sought to do jus-
, ■ lice.-as they.saw it and to recognize and
giYC'force to rights which   were   sanctioned'by the customs mid ethical  conceptions of their times, bill It was  only
as they chose to enforce and   recogni-e
lhat the customs or clhical  conception
became working factors  in   the   communities.    Even   in   I'ngland,   where
parliament   is   supreme,   a   legislative
;body and a constitutional convention in
.one, and where, there being no written
and when the legislation   of  a  parlia
ment composed entirely of representatives nl the arisloccatic classes was cruel
and one sided, the courts exercised an
equalizing, humanizing influence which
was iiiainlv democratic. This indeed,
was but natural and logical. The judges had no particular interests to subserve.
equal opportunity is dear to the Anglo-
Saxon, especially to the prosperous one
and strong proof will always be necessary before he canbe made to relinquish
his belief in its existence. There can
indeed be no doubt thai legislative interference with the hours and methods
of employment is not as yel generally
popular either in England or in America, and that in opposing such innovations the American judge but reflects
the general opinion which prevails in
thc community around him.
The majority of American voters  areas yet farmers.    It is they who, in   the
king. Men had appealed to bin. as
their supreme aibitralor; they had ap
pealed to his conscience, to his sense o
right and of justice. It was lo him
lliat the person despoiled of liis little
ewe lamb would come. The judges inherited the perogalive.s of the king.
As I have before said, there is a feeling now becoming quite largely prevalent lhat in America, the land of popular reprcsantation, the courts have not
been so democratic; .thai although the
American judges have steadily stood for
what lias seemed to them to-be basic
justice and'morality," and have protected
iu every Way the poor man as a poor
man, ar far as in ihem lay, by upholding mechanics' lien laws and homestead
wages and other exemptions, they have
'constitution, the necessity of conform-; unreasonably opposed the laboring man
irig to its requirements give no excuse ;n |,is.struggle for industrial advance-
for the judicial scrutiny of the legi-.la- ,IK.n[. alK| that their tendency has been
lative enactments, the power that exists ! to check rather than   to   help  forward
The   original  judge  was  tlicf main elect the judges, and it will be far   |

.in tlie courts lo .nullify the acts of par-
- "liament by a strained construction or
by a refusal to enforce their provisions
js everywhere apparent. Thefollowing
signigcant clause which we Iin J attached to one at least of theacts of Par-H
liament tells its own story.   .
"And be it finally enacted that the
.present act, and every clause, article
.anil sentence comprised in Ihe same,
shall be taken and accepted according
•to the plain words and sentences  there-
1 -in contained, and shall not be interpreted, nor expounded, by color or auv
jpretence or cause, orby any subtle arguments, or inventions or   reasons,  to
..the hindrance, disturbance   or derogation of this act, or any pari thereof."
The great body of the law, indeed,
Jboth in England and America, is judge
..and not legislature made. For while,
•(throug'* tbe many centuries of the
.jgjrowih of English aud American jurisprudence, the legislatures and parlia-
•nents have met only for limited periods
and at irregular intervals, the courts
have been in almos*t continuous session
-ancl have been called upon to passjudg-
.ivicnts and to lay down rules ol" practice
and of conduct in matters concerning
which the legislatures have not spoken,
A vast volume of'law has accordingly
grown up which is founded on customs
recognized or sanctioned hy the courts
and thus transformed into precedents
and rules of conduct, thai is to say—
laws, lt may be even stated as a general proposition that the activities ofthe
English parliament and the American
legislatures have been much more in the
rfireciion of correcting, modifying and
expanding this judge-made law than in
building up any leyal structure of their
pwn. -" ' "
It would seem at a first glance that
such a legal system must, in Ihe main,
be undemocratic, and this belief is no
doubt largely prevalent, especially
among the friends of organized labor in
America, who have seen statute after
■>'atute for which they have striven set
aside and nullified. Xo one, however,
can read the judicial decisions of both
countries without being impressed with
Ihe devotion to basic justice, morality
and fair dealing among men therein
displayed. The courts, it is true, and
especially in recent years have opposed
many seemingly popular movements,
but their tendency through the long
ages has been in the main democratic,
and much more so even  than   that   of
.   the ievislativc bodies and   parliaments
thttiiselves, which have legislated   too
popular impulse. In short, that they
have been aristocratic rather than democratic, conservative rather than liberal
individualistic rather than socialistic,
and have too strenuously protected the
right of private properly as opposed to
the rights of the individual himself.
, There can be no doubt, it wouidseem
to the writer of this article, that there
is in these charges a large measure of
truth, if that of lack of democracy- be
expected, for it would seem to him, no
natter what the results of the decisions
or on what faulty logic or misapprehension of conditions they may be sometimes founded, iheir moving purposes
have been democratic.
The history of the development of our
judge-made law has been, in the. main,
the history of the development of the
social and political thought of the country, and h is reflected it. Throughout
both there has been a struggle between
the old Anglo-Saxon and the to-day
American ideal ofv personal independence and the realization that men belong to a common country and a common humanity .with'mutual rights and
obligations. ..' ■' No matter. what . may
have been the history of the past, the
divinity and the worth while of'; Uncommon man is to-day in Amei ica
everywhere recognized,-mid what appears at the lirst glance a seeming unwillingness to help the weak in the industrial struggle is more often found to
be based on a misapprehension of facts
and economic conditions and on au ui"-
v-.-iltingiH-s.s- to relinguish the cherished
tradition'in this country at least ther
are equal opportunities for them all oi,
any real lack of sympathy for the great
mass of mankind.
it is perhaps this individualistic idea
which more than anything else had
nullified the labor legislation of the
United Stales. The wide latitude for
coii-lnu ion furnished by the fifth aiul
fourteenth amendments to the federal
constitution which forbid the taking oi
property without due process of law,
and the interpretation given bv the
courts to the clause, that it protects nol
only tangible property, but the rigiit
and opportunity to work and co:nr.,st
for the purpose of acquiring the same,
having given to our judges the ultimate determination as to whether any
particular labor law shall be enforced
or not.
■"The protection of the employe from
physical danger and the awarding to
him of damages in carves where, through
Ihe negligence of the employer   in fail-
in the future before the farmer who
has been used to rising willuhe sun
if I and only ceasing his toil with darkness
will concede the necessity for limiting
the hours of labor of those engaged in
other than agricultural pursuits lo
eight hours a day. Much farther in
•he future indeed will be the time when
the will consent to such limitation of
hours in farm work, and as long as this
latter disclination exists, a good eight-
hour law is a legislative impossibility,
for the simple reason that the farmers
in the legislature will never consent to
il. Every eight-hour lawand labor law
therefore must be more "or less subject
to the criticism of class legislation, and
on this pretext can be set aside by any
hostile court. In this connection it
might be well to suggest that it is a
significant fact tbat in England even
the labor unions have long been divided and in doubt on the question of
the advisability of any general eight-
hour law, and that in those portions of
Australia where the cight-nour day has
quite generally prevailed for over quarter of a century it has prevailed only by
agreement between employer and employe, and the legislatures have onlv
attempted to regulate the matter as far
as minors and women are concerned.-—

thc advancement of particular interests,
the courts have, as much as possible,
sought 50 deal fairly and impartially between l\\z strong and the weak. They
have notified much ofthe hardships of
the earlier laws and customs relating to
personal service and serfdom by imposing reciprocal obligations on the employer and a liability in damage for injuries occasioned by liis negligence, so
much so that practically all of our law

There is a gre^t deal pf activity in
Perry Creek just now everything indicates a lively sammcr. A namber
of properties will be worked the com-
in**1 season and the prospects are most
excellent for good returns.
Mr. I~'u-*r,ant, who has a lease near
Old Town, is sinking a new shaft and
expects to get down to. pay dirt by
Em il Banks and Jack Thompson,
who have done so much to show up
the riches of Perry Creek, are hard
at work on their new shaft and have
reached a depth of thirty-two feet,
and think they will reach pay in fif-
' teen'-or twenty feet more. They
struck a big flow of water and have
spent six weeks moving* a|l the machinery from the old sh'att to ""fie present one. They have built'a fldine 6(p

Writing, on the eight-hour for smelter
employees Ernest Mills says;
Do you realize the conditions under
which smeitermen I'lbor,- enveloped .111
death--le-}l{ng's'-lpli-4rous smoke, dust
and g****ei*: '"
Do'you realize lhat these men are
forced, by necessity, to labor 12 and often I3 hours under such unhealthy conditions that their lives are made a mere
ekeing out of existence? Their condition is such that some insurance companies will refuse the risks.
'-" Go into the smelter at Trail and sec
the deathly palor in the men's faces and
ask yourselves—Is it right and just' lo
keep those men in those fumesanddust
for 12 and 13 hours.
Can't you give this measure support
through'your'columns, when you must
know that many men arc being ushered
to a pcrmature death by the deathly
gases; continually nece§*iita(ing Ihem
to take deadly poisons to so condition,
ihem up for another - task. Many of
the men have contracted and^ contorted
muscles, teeth loosen and drop out and
they become physical wrecks thr.qugh
long \spi\is in sirtoke, gas and dust.
The arguments used against tlie bill
are the same old songuscd against tlie
eight hours for miners; dividends, divi-.
dends,,profits, profits, and that on heav..
ily watered capitalization.
Any system that enslaves working
men 12 and 13 hours in dust, smoke
and gas is criminal, as it degenerates
and debases the manhood of jour coun-
