union which Is seeking to gain r< -nwnMem from the mine owners
ou Vancouver island. _^^^^^^
The compuny officers Bay there ia no otber cause for dispute between the men and the companies.
The companies refuse absolutely to recognize the American
union,  which obtained 150 members from HOtm miners.
Tbe 0. M. W. of A. called a Birike  Muy   I,  and  the mines were
shut down.
At a meeting May 2, all but 20 of 500 wbo attended voted to go
to work. The U. M. W. of A. said f.00 of 2000 was nol repreBcuta-
tive, and offered slrllke pay.
Idle men then joined tbe union to get the pay, consisting of $4
per week for mines, t'i lur tlieir wives and $1 for each child.
The same operation  wus effected

The subject came up again at the
board of trade meeiing last night,
when after a somewhat lengthy discussion It was referred to the navigation committee of the board of trade
and the shipping committee of the
Progressive association to take all
steps necessary to ensure that there
shail  Le  no  repetition of,  the    occur-

The matter was opened up by    the

Mr. Uilley said he, with others, had
��� waited  upon    Mr.    Taylor,  M.P., and

Mine and Milllug company, American

tlle  Parral,  Chihuahua  district,  gold
and  silver bullion  to the total  value
of $600,000, by  wagon  trains, to pre- *
vent Its confiscation by  Mexican war i

down   the  Conches   river   valley   and
crossed into Texas at Presidio. Guards
of armed Americans escorted It.    No

In making this observation it has been pointed out
that it might be a plan worth while trying in the next issue of civic stock. Eleswhere this scheme has worked admirably, notably in Minneapolis, while several Canadian
cities in the west, as well as in the east, have adopted it
with satisfactory results.
Insome quarters the opinion is held that a man who
is looking for an investment in bonds would buy a thousand dollars' worth, or more, but it has been proved that
the smaller denominations are much more acceptable to t,
the bome market than the larger issues. The reason for
this appears to lie in the fact that there are numbers of
itssidents living on salaries, who wish an absolutely safe
investment for their savings and who, prompted by this
desire and also, perhaps, by pride in their city, would buy
its bonds in units less than one thousand dollars when
toheir financial circumstances would not permit them to! He then reviewed the synoptic Goepei 3

refused   $8,000   for  Ills   farm.     Along j
this  sume road a  tract of 188 acres i~
was supposed  to have been  sold  for j L
$ti,ii00.     The   purchaser   refused     the
contract,   however,   and     the     owner
threatened    to    sue    him.     Alter  the

purchaser fur $8,000.

Eyewitness Tells of Sack of Durango
���Cupports Ambassador Wilson's
Washington, Aug. 4.���Tho first authentic account of what, happened
when Mexican rebels sacked the city
of Durango and an Illuminating ex
position of the state of affalrB in Mexico have been laid before Secretary
or  State  Bryan.
The statement was written by M A.
I<each. of San Krancisco, who has
been for the laBt three years In Chihuahua and Durango, Me'xlco. Having
lost everything he owned but bis
Clothing in the sacking of Durango, of
which be was a witness, and not Intending lo go back to Mexico, Mr.
I.i ach lias found It possible to speak
frankly, which would have not have
been the case had he any Intention of
returning to Durango.
The contents of Mr. I.each'B account of conditions in Mexico unpractically Identical with hundreds of
other similar documents which have
been received nt tlie state department
from consuls and Americans in Mexico, bnt which have been wltheld from
members of the bouse und senate and
from tbe public. His statements verify those made by Ambassador Wilson
to the effect there Is only one organized political revolution in Mexico and
that  is the state of Sonora. and  that

Carranza Ib concerned hls men behave no better than others, though
he himself is of a higher type. In

need any comment.
"These men are not fighting fjr
principle. They care nothing for Madero or any other man. What they
are after Is something for nothing. It
is the Ignorant poor against the rich,
s'eking to obtain by force of arms
whal they ure unable to obtain

the looting of the entire city began.
Not a single store escaped being com

gold. All prisoners rrom jails and
the state penitentiary, some 400, were
turned loose, and all criminal and

action is to take away from Schrank
a five-storey tenement liouse, at East
K'gbty-first street, upon which the
City Heal Kstate company holds a
mortgage for $13,000. The rial estate company filed a lis penden on
the property, alleging that the interest had not been paid Bince July 1,
At the office  of the City  Heal  Bt-  }��
tate company  it  was stated  that the
case  would   be  preBBed  at  once,  and
that   within   a   few   days   a   receiver
would   be   appointed   to  collect     the
rents of the tenement house.   As soon
as the legal formalities have been observed  the  property  Is to te  sold  to
! satisfy the mortgage.
I    lt was announced by the City Heal
Kstate   company   that   it   Is   unusual .
for  a   proresslonal  anarchist   to  own
properly.    That, company   holds   that
the  owning  cf  property   Is   the  best
cure for anarchy, yet Schrank owned
a  tenement  which houses  ten  laurl-
ies.    The  average  monthly   rental  ls
$14. so that the Income ol the house
is about 1140  per  month.
Mrs. Mull. Janlress ot the tenement

Mr I.auinger was not at home lasl

Caught in  New  York  and  Now Tried
Fourth Time for  Murder.
Milan,  Aug.. 15.���Calenda,  the  no-j
torlous Calabrlan brigand, is again on j
trial ut Batanzaro assizes in the same j
grim  iron cage in which  in  the year
1X68 he heard his condemnation to 80 !
years' hard labor for murders. Hardly
had  he shaken  off his shackles than
he was hauled  before the  Monteleon |
assizes to expiate an outrageous crime 1
fer which he served five years in the !
Brindisl convict settlement.
Calenda then expressed his inten- j
tion of settling down quietly. This he |
did until 1905, when he heard that a ]
young fellow named Maori had made a ;
boast concerning Caleada's beautiful i
nelce. Mad with rage Calenda waylaid him with a gun. The shot missed I
hut a few nights later Macrl was found
pierced through the heart.
The brigand  disappeared:    and    in
his absence he was sentenced to li0
years' Imprisonment   A few days later a shepherd stumbled across a couple
of bodies on the mountain where f'a-
1-nda was known to be in hiding. The
two murdered  men  had been shot in
'he hack by bullets of a pattern that
Calenda  was  carrying.    The  judicial
authorities   increased   the   penalty   to |
life-long   incarceration,   and   carabin- !
i.-rs    were    dispatched   to  fcour  thel
mountain fastness In hopes of captur-1
ing him.
Meanwhile Calenda���furnished with
1 a falFe passport���was on his way to
I New   Vork.     No   more   was   heard   of
.him till 1H11, when  an Italian dctec- |
tlve, dropping into a Brooklyn phar-]
macy   recognized   the   ex-brigand   In
���the chemist's assistant. Hence his expulsion from the l'nited States and his
reappearance to answer for two murders and  two other attempts at murder.    This ls the fourth time that the
court   had   been   occupied   in   judging
his bloody deeds.

Charges of practicing peonage, slavery and general oppression have been
made in the following letter addressed to the upper country press against

Sir,���1   call   your  attention   to  the
slavery which Is practiced in this pro-

7000 meu, women and children are
kept by the Peter Verigiti In the
worst kind of bondage; where the
sick are denied any medical help;
where children grow in ignorance, illiterate; where the morality of the
people ls undermined; where the
"chief" calls himself an incarnation
ol Jesus Christ.
There are hundreds of my friends
who would most gladly leave the "society", become British subjects and
enjoy the liberty under your free government, but l'eter Verigin does not
pay for the work of his slaves and
my friends remain penniless slaves in
the "society" which is worse than so-
called peonage In Mexico.
I am now 23 years of age. Since
15 years of age 1 worked for Peter
Verigin. who used to send me with
others to gain money for him. The
first year 1 hrought into the "society's" treasury $75; the second $150;
the third $100 and the fourth $22 and
$300 worth of implements. Besides,
I worked for Verigin all the time,
when I was not gaining money for
In British Columbia I worked for
Verigin three months cutting wood
and clearing stumps and so did the
other 300 slaves which he brought
here from Saskatchewan this   spring.
Here, thank God, 1 and over 40 of
the others saw at last that wo are

who exploited us worBe than a slaveholder of olden time. I decided to
free myself and recently went to P.
Verigin and begged him to give me
for my work money enough to buy
a railroad ticket to Saskatchewan,
where 1 left my wife and children.
But, as with others, he sent me to h���
and did not give me a cant.
As a penniless man I cannot go to

the "Merchant of Venice" from the
public school curriculum, as was requested of the Spokane school hoard
by Rabbi David l.evine ot Temple
K.manii-Kl. would not result to any
advantage to the Jews in the opinion
of President James M. Brogan, the
newly appointed head of Gonzaga uni-

' position that the drama is a standard
work tif literature not calculated to
prejudice the modern mind against
i Hebrews, and that assenting to Hi"
priS"iit request would open the way
for unlimited requests of a similar na
ture by many other classes.
No Cause for Offense
"The representation of the Jew In
the '.Merchant of Venice' Bhould not
be taken as offensive to the Jews of
our day," he said. "There are many
characters overdrawn In literature,
and no class has more canst, for ur .-
vance In this respect than we Catholics, yet we do not ask to have good

There are manv classes, he ma'n-

The merchant wlioso business lags in the summer /

To slacken the selling pace in the hot season���to
lessen Advertising activity���indicates a resignation
which has no place in modern business.
If we think ire cannot keep our business booming in
summer time, wc surely will not.
"What a jolt it must have been to the fur trade, when
the first miJ-sununer fur advertisement was run in

the example of that progressive fur man who dared
to be'ieve that fur sales need not go down as the
mercury goes up.
Energy, linked with Advertising, has turned the
inonth of January into the biggest selling season
for white goods. Advertisements of a high stimulative power, combined with a disregard of "seasons,"
have opened up automobile selling two month*
earlier than was once thought possible. Advertising
has started Christmas shopping early in October
instead of the middle of December.
Advertising rises superior to seasons and thermometers. The right kind of Advertising strikes a

niunication  between   Ladner and  this
!eity.   It is as follows:
From New Westminster via Columbia street and Ewen avenue there Is a
well   macadamized road to Boundary
road  or Canal  street,  Richmond.    At
the end of Canal street the dyke ditch
| is crossed  by  a bridge,  which  needs
| replacing by  a   more  permanent  nnd
stronger structure.    Tlie roadway on
('anal  street  is  narrow  and' the  city
has placed rock on it, but the surface
has not been rolled.   This road to the 1

' off from the bridge crossing to meet
N'o.  191   road,  Richmond, on  a more
direct line,
i Canal street joins with a gravelled
and planked road which connects with
No. 5 road across l.ulu island from
the North Arm to Woodward's landing.. This road is in fairly passable
condition, but needs repairing.
No. 5 roatl is being re-planked 2-t
feet wide. It will give a splendid
roadway from the ferry landing to
Kiver roatl at Fraser avenue. Thence
there is a well paved motor road to the
city by way of Sixtli avenue, a instance of ten miles. On the ferry lielng
operated there is thus a motor rond
provided by the River roatl through
South   Vancouver   and   Burnaby.
Hut there is obviously need for tbo
improvement of the boundary connection of No. 19 roatl with Kwen avenue.
Alderman Dodd informed vour committee that estimates have heen prepared for Improving Canal street.
Richmond being ask"d to assume half
the  cost.
In view nf the near completion of
de ferry prelect, it l�� recommended
that a memorial of this board he addressed to both tin Richmond council
and the Richmond and Point Grey
boards of trade, the Delta council and
board of trade, urging that this matter be given consideration. Improved communication by No. lit road from
hte Ferry read will groatlv convenience those farmers who find it profitable to haul tlieir produce to market as by the l.ulu laiand road there Is
