condition as tho result of a love
match  opposed by  her parents.

been hectored and and ridiculed
until sensitive nature at last gave

The Ledgre in Fernie.
The removal to and the publication of this paper in Fernie needs
little comment in one way, and a
great deal in another.   Its editor
recognizes tho great future that is
"iffstore"ior"Feniie7^nd^li"0-~East
Kootenay, and has gathered all his
forces to the town with the payroll.   We need no brass band to
announce the fact that we aro in
town.   Our work will speak for
itself and needs no padding.   This
paper, after a few minor difficulties
are pushed away, will always be
found in the front rank.   Its editorials will be original, and flavored
with a Western  experience  that
commenced long before tho trails
were blazed into ono of Canada's
greatest coal towns.   Its city and
district news will bo breezy and interesting, and  seldom dipped in
vinegar.   Its selections of the beBt
in humor, Action and literature,
will alone make it a pleasant companion in every cabin, palace nml
home.   It commences business in
its  new  home  with  the  largeM
circulation of any weekly paper in
this  province,   a  fact  that  will
gladden tho heart of every advertiser.   Its job printing department
will be the birthplace of many a
typographical triumph, ever blending beauty with stability.   With
these few remarks we hoist our
flag amid the smoke of Fernie, and
trust that it will never come down
until tho last car of black diamonds
is dug out of tho hills, and the mil*
leninm makes us all the samo size.
Ouit editorial matter is scant this
week owing to the fact that we are
busier rustling business than Bill
Galliher is catching votes.
The circulation of this paper is
limited, to a million, so get in early
and subscribe. We still have tho

It is a good thing to fire customs

He was onco commissioned to do
a serial story for a° Chicago paper.

for the letters in your serial. We
will pay you so much a thousand

Do you know the cause of most" railway accidents?" asked a Divleion
Superintendent on tho Lake Shore to
mo the other day, as we were waiting
on the platform at Ashtabula.
"What causes most accidents? Why,
disobedience of orders j,' 1 answered.  .
"Yon are only partially right—tho
causo lies deeper. Why should a railway employee disobey orders?. Why
should an engineer run past the station
where he is ordered to stop?—it iB his
own lifo he cndangors mo6t. Why
should a trnin-dcspatcher send out two'
trains facing each other on one track?
Or why should a switchtondor throw a
switch in front of a fast express?
"You call these thing, accidonts,—
but that tn not tho word—they aro the
result of wrong mental conditions: and
this wrong condition is usually domestic
infelicity.
"Doyou remember whon two passenger trains met, head on, out in Indiana,
last yoar? Tho engineer of ono of those
trains had in his pocket an order to take
the side track at a certain station. Ho
ran hy that station at the rate of fifty
miles an hour, and in live minutes thero
was a crash that simffed out fifty-four
lives and two hundred thousand dollars
worth or property.
"I knew the engineer. Lot us call
him Hank Bristol, for that wasn't his
namo. He was married to a smashing,
dashing, beautiful creaturo, and thoy
boarded at a hotel—had no children. 1
boarded there, too, and we aU made
eyes at Hank's handsome wife. She
used to play the piano and sing a little,
and recite, Tho love ot the one plain,
honest man was not enough for—she
craved tho admiration of the clever.
She wasn't a bad woman—just an idle
one, who spent every sparo cent Hank
made, on finery, and, of courso, wanted
tho finery and herself admired.
"Hank was proud of her, too. One
evening he kissed the dear creature
good-byo and started out to make a
night run. He wont to the roundhouse, and at'the last moment the Ol'
Man decided to save Hank back and let
him take out a .special carrying the
President aud DircctorA)f tho road, In
tho morning. Hack was tickled—it
was'a great compliment to him. He
went home to tell his wife—he used to
tell her everything.
"But when ho got home, she wasn't
there—8he had gone to tho theatre with
a boot and shoo drummer.
"Hank went away and walked the
streets all night—his wifo nevdr knew,
and I believe she doesn't yet. Ho walked tbo streets all night aud ran out tho
special in tho morning.
"But after that ho was never tho
same. Ho used to confide in me—he
just had to tell some one to keep his heart
from bursting,
"He grow absent-minded, lost flesh,
appetite gone, was nervous—the doctor
snid he should quit coffee and cut out
half the tobacco.
"I know what was the mattor—he was
jealous. I told him so—and he laughed
a laugh that gave mo gooseflcsh. ' I
jealous? Why, Bill, you don't know
me—1 jealous? The idea! No, I'm only
married to a damned fool of a woman,
who makes my heart eat itself out with
grief because she lives on the fringe of
folly. Why don't I leave her! My God!
Bill, that is tho trouble—I can't—I love
her!'
"Hank didn't work on our road or I'd
never havo let him touch a throttle-
valvo, even if he'd been my brother.
I knew it would come. He was found
under the engine, the order that ho had
disobeyed In his pocket, and a picture
in bis watch of tbo woman who caused
tho disaster.  No, it probably has never
dawned upon this women that she
caused the wreck. She wore deep
mourning and the cutest little black
bonnet with a white ruche. She was
tho moei fetching widow you ever saw
—and she knew it.
"Yes, that is what I said—marital infelicity causes the railroad wrecks and
most others, too.
"The only safoman is ono whose heart
is at rest—who has a home, and a wifo
who stays there and minds her business,
looks after tho babies, has no secrets,
and does not mako eyes at other men—
that's the kind! 1 know every man
that works for me, and I know a disturbed, distressed aud jealous man a
train-length away, My heart bleeds
for 'otn. but I serve the public and none
such can run an engine for me.
"Do you see that man in the blue
overalls down there at the end of the
platform? Well, he is the engineer who
will take out thia train. See how calm,
satisfied and self-possessed he is; he has
no cares, no anxieties beyond tho desire to do his work well. Seo him now
walking around his engine, lovingly
looking it over. He Ib not bo awfully
brilliant, but ho will never disappoint
you. Now, when wo start, about two
miles out, you will hear the engine
give three soft tools, and over to tho
left, a little woman will come out of a
white cottage and wave her apron!"
The conductor called "All aboard!''
The bell clanged warningly, -wo stepped
into the coach and the train started.
Wo had reached tho outskirts of tho
town and wero skimming along at the
rate of thirty miles an hour.
The engine gave three short, soft
whistles, I saw the white cottage, a
woman standing on the back porch with
children holding on to her Bkirts all
'around—she was waving a big check
apron!
"What did I toll you?" aeked the
Superintendent—"that man's heart is at
rest—he will nover forget an order—he
is safe—his mind is free, so he does his
work! He is at peace with himself and
at peace with the world. You can always trust a man who honestly loves
and is loved honestly. Penelope is 'preferable to either Phryno or Phyllis.''

Tho British Columbia soopagos, In

district of Montana and on Cameron
Falls creek in Alberta. Great success
is attending boring operations in theee
localities. But the evidoncesTol petrb-
loum exist largely in British Columbia.
Eastward ot the Aid ridge seepage in
Alberta, which is only about three
miles from the summit, tho formation
is such as to rather daunt the speculator, and thia reduced the area suitable
for commencing operations to comparatively small dimensions. Thoro has
not been room for groat activity, al
though it is to bo hoped, upon the demonstrations now being mado, tho
field of operations will bo successfully
extended. In Montana also boring was
only commenced upou an iuductton
from tho British Columbia seepages,
and tho one existing on Klntla creek.

There are perhaps 10,000 Japanese in
and about San Francisco, and several
thousands more scattered through the
State of California.. More, than half of
them aro boys in their toons or young
men in their early twenties. They come
mostly of good families. Many are of
tho proud Samurai caste. With little
money or none at all they havo como to
the Unitod States to get an education.
Wheu a Japanese boy of this class
lands in tho United States, ho goej to
ono of the innumerable Japanese em-'
ployment agencies.0 Usually he doesn't
know a word of the language. His
countrymon coach hira in a few words
necessary to understand a domestic
order. Then thoy get him a job for a
low price as "second boy," or man of al!
work, often at a Iprice as low as $5 a
month iwith board and room and the
privilege of school time to himself.
Green as he is, ho learns fast. In a
week ho can wash dishes, prepare vegetables, sweep, dust, and make beds.
After that ho goes to a Public School,is
admitted to ono of the lower grades, and
begins a regime which makes the life of
a Scotch student seem like leisure by
comparison. Ho is up with the dawn,
studying until it is time to get breakfast and serve it. He rushes through
his dishes and is at his desk by 9 o'clock.
In the primary school recess of an hour
and a half he! is back serving luncheon,,
or if that meal is omitted at his house,
doing odd chores. After Bchool he races
through his housework, Berves dinner,
washes tho dishes, and iB back at his
books again.' And ho keeps that pace
up year in and year out. It would kill
a Caucasian.
All this is a great blessing to the
housekeeper of limited means. A fam
ily which couldn't afford a white servant
hires a Jap boy for $6 a month and his
board, , The wife does the cooking and
the lighter housework. The Jap does
all tho rest. There's only one trouble
witlnjthe arrangement. He is learning
all tho time, and when he has found out
bow to do plain cooking, Amorlcan|style,
he'is^ikijijrtOTind-a-pla-D-whers-hs-can
mako moro money. Then the housewife has to break in another Japanese
boy.   The original ""help" goes on and

and is making a cook's wages. He
saves the money to finish his education.
Some day little Oki shows up at Palo
Alto or Berkeley, where Stanford University and tho University of California
are situated. Stanford ia run ou the
dormitory plan Thobedmnkes liroal.
Japanese, so if ho has elected Stanford,
tlio thrifty Japanese gets a job in the
dormitory. If it's the University of
California, where there are no dormitories, he takes servico in one of the
big studeut boarding-houaeB. And In
this situation ho does the work equivalent to a High School course—does it in
two or three years. When the studies
are top pu-zliug,theJap8 band together,
form a class, and hire an American stn-
dent to tutor them.
Students in Encina dormitory at
Stanford, going down to the Japanese
quarters in the basement to find out
what happened to that key, find tho
whole dormitoy course sitting like
statues at a table, studying. The keeper
of astndeht boarding house at Berkeley
finds her Jap boy peeling potatoes with
a geometry propped up on tho sink, his
hands working at one thing, his head at
another
Some fine August dav, the former
bedmaker or second boy enters..the
University. He has been in this country perhaps six or seven years. In that
time he has gone from a primary class
clear through a High school course,
made his living, end saved enough
money to take a four-ycar'courso in the
university, with the help of vacation
work. Happily, tuition at both universities is practically free.
Except for seeing him in the classroom, none of the white students know
he is there. He is living in some little
cheap room at Berkely or Palo Alto,
cooking his own rice and oatmeal and
studying, studying. He nods and
smiles politely as he passes on tlio campus; but that is all. Yet on graduation
day, he Is there for his diploma.

* John HoustoNt says he publishes the only ••orthodox" Conservative paper in tho province.
As tho other fellows get tho pap,
it is possible that it pays to be unorthodox in politics.
TnB result in Yale-Cariboo depends largely upon which party receives the support of Patrick J.
Kennedy of Greenwood. Should
he decide to support cither Ross or

Duncan Eoss and Martin Burrell had a talking match at Eholt
last week. It is not on record
that anyone's political opinion's
were seriously disturbed. Still it
is just as well to have the candidates talk, and let them believe
they are making votes.

It is said that Governor Mackintosh, the Tory tandidate, is lost.
It would~be wisdom on the part of
his opponents not to take much
stock in the "lost" rumor, for the
governor iB liable to be ''found"
working in some part of the constituency, and also at the head of
the poll when the votes aro counted.
The rumor that the editor of
the Economist will be the Conservative standard bearer iu the
event'of-QovernorMackintosTrSbt
coming to the scratch iu good condition, is without foundation. Mr.
Carley assures us that he cannot
neglect|his business or jeopardize his
reputation for honesty by becoming
a candidate. j_____
What a wild, mad mob of enthusiasts the people of Ontario
must bo. When Borden appears
there the people flock from miles
around for the sole purpose of
opening their mouths and letting
tho gas escape. When Wilfrid
makes a- tour the Cap Sullivans
and Strattons and others whe havo
spent their private fortunes in tho
interest of pure governmont, tear
each other's clothes in tho mad
endeaver to get near tho great
chieftain.     ___________
Tita very obseuro individual who
hasn't been noticed by tho press
for fivo years, Is now getting into
the swim with both feet. He has
been either a "lifelong" Grit or
Tory, and now as a matter of con*
scienBO and in [the "interests of
pure govenimon" he '•turns from
his wickedness.." If he guesses
right, ho will probably get a low*
grado appointment; if be guesses
wrong, be will get the contempt of
both parties. In either case he
sinks into the obscurity from which
ho emerged for a brief period.
