The elections for Vale-Cariboo will be held
on Thursday December 6ih when the "free
and intelligent elector" will have fl chance to
exercise his francbififl and vote for the candidate of his choice. The candidates nominated
at Kevelstoke on the 19th arc: W. A. Gailiher,
liberal, J, McKane* conservative and C. Foley,
labor. With lhe liberal party in power, Mr.
Gailiher has slightly ihe best of the contest
notwithstanding that the district is inclined to
be conservative. Owing to Mr. Macneill's
retirement Mr. McKane, the conservative
candidate will not have the time to get around
the district but at points where he has held
meetings is being enthusiastically received,
and is a hard fighter making an interesting run
for the seat. Mr. Foley, the labor candidate.

As announced last week the political meeting in the interests oi Mr. Gailiher, the Liberal candidate for Vale-Cariboo, was held in
Santini's hill last Friday evening. The hell
was well filled wilh the citizens to listen to
the view-.put forth. At 8:30 Mr. E. S.
Peter1. !ool< the chair and after a few brief
remarks called on Mr. Aulay Morrison M,P.
New Westminster to address the meeting.
Mr. Morrison on coming forward was well
recei ed. lie gave a very interesting address and by his honesty ami sincerity his remarks tended to induce the independent or
boadminded voter that the Liberal partv
were deserving of tlie confidence showed by
the people of Canada on the 7th.
He did nut abuse but gave the man having
Conservative ideas, the rgiht to his opinions
and stud it was on no account that because
the liberal party had been in power since
1896 that the deficits of the country had been
lessened or the revenues increased, but the
fact that lhe Liberal party had competent and
business men attending to the affairs of the
country) which the conservatives did not have,
and as a result the people of Canada wanted a
change and in 1896 took advantage of the
general elections and put the liberal party in
power with a sweeping majority. He gave
several practical illustrations of facts, relative
to the two parties, for the elector to consider,
lie finished his speech asking support for Mr.
Mr. Stuart Henderson, banister, Ashcroft
was next called, and dealt with local matters, winch the majority of meeting knew
more about. Thcopening up of Indian reserves
for mining companies, the mail and telegraph service to Bridge river, being the most
important. He did not think that these matters would be neglected and the wants of the
district in general would be well 'ooked after
lie also dwelt on the Chinese question and
explained in a very amusing manner the way
the people of the east look upon the "Heathen
Chinee." He thought it would be advisable
under the circumstances for the people ol
this section to help secure Mr. Galliher's
election for he would be able to do more for
the district than an opposition member. Any
person wishing to speak was asked to come
forward or any question to be asked, but as
none of either were forthcoming the meeting
Idol of France.
Mr. Kruger has become, for tbe moment at leaat, the popular idol of JVance.
Mia triumphant passage north and
through tbe country from Maraielles to
Dijon has placed this beyond doubt. Ma
met with a tremendous reception in
each town along the route, where the
train stopped, culminating in scenes of
frenzied enthusiasm calculated to turn
the head af anyone.
The population of Marseilles gathered
in thousands this morning to escort him
to the railroad station and gave him a
great rousing send-off, while at Tarascon,
Avignon, Lyons, Macon and Dijon, tbe
inhabitants, who crowded the railroad
stations, made tbe rafters tremble with
enthusiastic shouts oi "Vivo Kruger!"
and Vive les Boers!"
The warmth of the reception increased
instead of decreased, as might have been
expected from the difference in character of tbe inhabitants of the provinces
through which Mr. Kiugcr passed, but
one of tho most important phases of tbe
demonstration was the turn it took in
an anti-British direction.

For the past few mnntln on tlio North
forK of fiiii!|[i* River considerable work
haa been clone, and in a quiet way, tbe
public in general not realizing what haa
been going on.
During the early part of the seaaon
the Bridge River Developing Company,
a New Jereey syndicate, acquired the
leasee ol the lbidge River _ Lillooet Gold
Mining Company, whose headquarters
are in Hamilton, Out., tlio fourteen
leases comprising about 15,000 feet at
the junction ol Bridge river ar.d tho
North Fork, while upon the latter 3,000
feet are situated, while on Bridge river
tbe property extends 3,000 feet above
the Fork and 0,000 below. A few years
ago tho Hamilton company, did some
work and spent quite a few dollars preparing to open up this property, but
not succeeding discontinued work.
This season Mr. W. W. Brown, manager of tbe Bridge River Developing Company, prospected the g!ouii(I and after
thoroughly satisfying himself that the
ground was rich and would pay big on
systematic working he took over the
property an,1 about July 1st, put on a
small gang of men, Inn owing to lega'
matters, which were not straightened
out until September, did not commence
work iu earnest -until about the
first of October. From October 1st until November 10th, a little over five
weeks, Mr. Brown pushed operations
ahead very quickly and as a result accomplished considerable work in this
short space of time. The ditch line is
about three miles in length and, one-
third of thn is completed seven feet in
width and three and a half feet deep, in
this distance there is about 1.000 feet of
Hunting, the grade is one aud a half
feet to the rod. Along thu ditch line at
places cuts of twelve feet bad to he
made and at numerous places the inside
bank ia over twenty feet high.
Tbe company have ample water and a j
continual supply and for the present will I
use five thousand inches, with a varying
pressure of from 250 to -100 feet.   In addition to the Hume and   ditch   already
completed a large amount of lumber is
stretched   along (he line at   lhe   points
needed,   gangs; ol men have   been   em

'l'!,e Iitrncl'Or Mine*.
The Bend'Or Mines Co., Ltd., have
received advices from the secretary of
the I'aris exposition that the international jury has awarded the Dominion
ol Canada a grand prize for a collective
exhibit of minerals, of which gold
quartz ore from the Bend'Or formed an
important part. The company will receive a copy of the award. Tbe showing
of mineral wealth from thia province at
the fair haa attracted widespread attention trom geologists and mining men of
the world.
Charles Noe! arrived inj!town Saturday-
evening from the Beod'Or mines, with
the cleanup for the run made thia
month. The mill commenced running
on the 2nd and continued until the 15th,
when the frost compelled them to discontinue. For the few days run, the
cleanup averaged well and the rock put
through keeps up its values. A i mall
gang of men are kept at work on the
east and west drifts getting out ore for
the spring and continuing pros<>eeting
and developing the mine. During tha
past week the thermometer registered
17 degrees below zero.
Tlie Soutli Fork.
Wm. Halymore came to lown Tuesday
afternoon afier a weeks trip to the South Fork
of Bridge Kiver. lie located a river lease
of one-half mile on the South Fork, above the-
Scum Scum ground, and will endeavor to
reach bedrock hy drilling up the creek. He
will leave ihis week again with supplies to
work all winter. The creek at this point is
ahout seventy-live feet wide,
On the South Fork wherever bedrock was
struck, plenty of gold has been taken out but
owing to the difficulties encountered with
water work was always discontinued. In
early days the Indians and a few Chinamen
mined along this section and some years ago a
ICIootchman picked up a nugget valued at $86
on the grout::! Mr. I lalytuore has. secured, and
a few years later on the Scum Scum ground
Owen William found a $no nugget.
A-company of California people have been
formed who have completed arrangements to
take over the Scum Scum ground r..ul this
season more or less work was done. Early
nexl season operations will be continued to
work this rich ground.

Why Diamond Drills are Dear.
Mr. Fred Stone, of Spokane, wbo did
much diamond drilling at the Silver
King mine, ia at present carrying out
Beveral contracts in the Roasland districts, and about to do simnlar work at
Ainsworth. He states that the work
now coBts $4 per foot, while befoie the
war it could he done for $1.50 per foot.
The advance is due to the rlee in black
diamonds which are imported from
South Africa for drilling. Before tha
conflict there, black diamonds could be
obtained at, $10 per carat, but now they
cannot he bad for less than $70. And it
costa over $1,000 to manufacture a hand
diamond drill. Even at tho price of $70
per carat it is now exceedingly difficult
lo obtain the necessary Eupply of diamonds, as work has practically stopped
at the misee of the Transvaal. But as
the war is nearly over it is expected that
work at the diamond mines will again
be started and vigorously be prosecuted.
This will relieve the long felt Btrain upon a most important branch ol mining

If you had a chart before you, you
would soo thnt Wnkes island Is n bit
of n dot In tho Pacific ocean, lying a
little south of the regular sailing route
between Honolulu and Yokohama,
Now and then It Is sighted by steamer
or sailing vessel making ihe passage,
I,ut the great majority pass it by 2UU
miles to the north. The traders call
there occasionally for water or fuel,
but as there are uo Inhabitants there
can lie no trade. It is an island three
miles long by one and a half broad,
ami it was thrown to the surface by nn
earthquake. There Is but one spot
where a lauding can be made even In
the calmest weather, as its shores are
rocky and rise lo a height of from HO
to 100 feet. Much of the island Is
wooded, and bowlders lie about everywhere, and It is probably one of the
loneliest sputs in the universe. For
some reason which no one cau explain
no birds are ever found there, nor Is
there any animal life. The only living
things are laud crabs, and tbey nre of
such size and fierceness that traders
have had to llee before them.
In ihe year 1801 the burk Restless
Failed out of San Francisco ou a voyage to Japan and China. She had just
been purchased by a man named Hubert Westall, who was little known, but
bad suddenly made a lot of money, and
I lie cargo was also mostly his. He
went with his ship, and a fate befell
him which reads stranger than fiction
of Ihe sea. lie was u landsman, knowing nothing of ships and sailors, aud It
transpired that the captain he selected
was a thoroughly bad man, while the
mate was little better. It was probably the captain's idea from the outset
to get possession of the ship, but West-
nil's suspicions were not aroused until
alter they had called at Honolulu and
resumed the voyage. Then lie overheard observations among the crew
which alarmed htm. im«. i»« went to
tlie captain with his statements, lie
was told without any beating around
the bush that the bark wns to change
bands. He was to be marooned on
Wakes island, and she was to pursue
her voyage us captain and crew decided. It was one man against 15, aud
of course be was helpless. Neither
threats nor promises bail the slightest
effect, and when be stormed he was
cautioned to hold his temper, or he
would be set afloat in a small boat to
perish of thirst and starvation. When
the island was finally reached, West-
all was ordered Into a boat to be rowed
ashore. Not a pound of provisions or
an extra article of clothing was to go
with him. He wns not even to have
the means of kindling a fire. Rendered
desperate by tho situation, he made a
light for It, but was soon knocked
senseless by tbe blow of a capstan bar,
and while in that condition was rowed
ashore and dumped on the beach. When
he recovered consciousness, the Restless was Bulling away and was already
miles distant.
Jules Verne has told how a sailor
cast away on a desert Island almost
naked managed to live almost luxuriously und provide for his every want.
The difference between imagination
and reality was exemplified In West..
all's case. He tried for days and days
to produce fire by rubbing dry sticks
together, but be never succeeded. lie
constructed a but in the woods, but his
food consisted of shellfish, roots and
wild fruits, and there was no way to
replace his clothing. He soon found
fresh water, and he also made tbe discovery that the spot seemed accursed
of all living: things except tho hind
crabs. As a rule these loathsome creatures did not bother him during daylight, but as soon as tbo sun went
down they swarmed over the wholo
Island. They were gigantic In size,
and his only way of escaping them
was to climb a tree. He built a platform among the limbs ten feet from
the earth, and every night during his
long stay be resorted to it. About once
a month, generally ut midday, the
crabs would swarm by the million and
hold possession of the Island for two
or three hours. At such times the
noise made hy their claws as they
passed over rock and soil wns almost
deafening nnd gave him a great scare.
Wlille the man speedily recovered from
the blow on the head given him on
shipboard, his lonely situation soon
began to tell on his mind. One day,
nt the end of three months, he found
that he had forgotten his own name.
It was two hours before It came to
him, nnd then, fearful that It might
go out of bis mind for good, he carved
his Initials on the bark of a tree with
a sharp stone. After making the circuit of the Island three or four times
he settled down near the landing place,
and every day for weeks und months
and years he hoped that some trader
would put In or some ship send iu her
boat. Traders did call on three or four
occasions, but he missed them. Once
he was asleep In the tree lop: again
he wns 111. On a third occasion tlie
crabs were out la tuch numbers that
the trader grew afraid and put off us
soon as he had touched.
Vou will wonder how a mau could
have lived for a month as Westall lived
for three years. For eight months
there was a species of wild fruit something like a plum Now aud then a
fish was left by the tide for him to capture, but he had to eat them raw.
There were oysters aud mussels and
limpets clinging to the rocks, but after
awhile he could hardly force himself
to swallow them. Iu six months bis
boots were goue and his clothing was in
tatters, and as the days drugged away
the man had it on his mind that Ids
memory was failing him. When a
year had gone by, he could no longer
recall his identity. Tlie Initials ou the
tree stood for a dozen different names
to him. Six months later he wan little
better than a wild beast. During Ids
second year, had be thought to erect
some sort of signal at the landing
place—some such signal as a sailor
would have made—he would probably
have been rescued, as two or three
traders came In for water, but he did
not even heap up stones or set up n
bush to attract attention. He had existed on the island three years and
two weeks when the American whaling ship Jonathan touched there for
water. I was In the boat first scut
ashore, and while waiting for the water casks to arrive I followed a path
up Into the woods ami discovered West-
all asleep on his platform. I believed
him at lirst to be some monster gorilla.
The weather had turned him almost
black, his hair was long and matted,
and he was without clothing. As ho
came tumbling down 1 ran away and
gave the alarm. That frightened him,
und seven men of us spent half a day
In his capture. He fought us with the
greatest ferocity, and for a long time
we could not make out bis nationality,
lie chattered a queer jargon or sulked,
and we had put lu at a Japanese port
before we could keep clothing on him.
1 was one of the apprentice boys on
the ship, ami, as the wild man had
taken a great liking to me aud I seemed to be the only one who could coutrol
him, the American consul advised that
I be left beliiud with tlie man while the
ship made a three months' circuit.
Quartet's were provided for us, and I
was Instructed how to go to work In an
effort to restore the poor fellow's memory. By this time he had let fall
enough to satisfy us that he was either
English or American. We had also
connected him in a way with the missing ship Restless. She had been reported as leaving Honolulu, but that
was the last of her. I put up a blackboard and turned schoolmaster, 1
chalked down lhe letters of the alphabet, made figures, drew pictures and
tried to start his memory to work. For
a month 1 had no luck. The man's
mind was as blank ns night, lie tried
hard enough, aud he used to break
down and* weep almost dally, but he
could not get hold of the end of the
string. 1 had ahout given up nil hope
when one day as 1 was going through
the usual performance memory came
back to him like a Hash. He suddenly
uttered a shout and sprang to his feet,
and as I turned on him It wns to find a
new look ou his face and to hear him
"It has come! It has come! My
name is Robert Westall, and I can remember everything!"
So It turned out, but the shock of recovery brought about an Illness that
confined him to his bed for weeks.
When he could relate his story, the
consul went to work to Hud out what
had become of the Restless. Inquiries
were made at all the ports of China
and Japan, but no news was obtained.
The search was still being prosecuted
when a sandalwood trader from one of
the Philippines brought the consul
some wreckage picked up three years
agone which proved that the bark had
gone to the bottom in a gale encountered soon after sailing away from
Wakes Island. To this day there have
been no tidings to alter this belief.
The wretches who so coolly and deliberately planned the death of the
shipowner by starvation did not live
beyond a few days to enjoy their triumph. Tho three years spent on the
Island made an old man of Westall before his time, and he never was clear
headed again, but he lived for ID years
after nnd managed to get together
quite a little property nnd to spend his
last years iu pence.

The latest authentic snake story Is
from North Gleuwood Farm, near
F.aston, one of the country places in
Talbot county, Md. The other day n
big black snake was seen emerging
from an ice pond. It was killed. A
protuberance was noticed about the
middle. The snake was chopped in
two, and a porcelain turkey nest egg
rolled out. Captain Noble Robinson
wns tenant on the farm last year. Mrs.
Robinson raised turkeys, using china
eggs In their nests. She says that 1-1
months ago she missed the nest egg
from a nest near the Ice pond. She
supposed a boy who had the range of
the meadow had taken It. When the
egg from the snake was shown to Mrs
Robinson, she Identified it as one she
had lost by a certain Incised mark
upon It. The snake had carried the
china egg 14 months In his vermiform
appendix, apparently without appendl
eitis. Hut he must have thought very

Strange applications come to the

Wondering why maid and mistress

the bureau found that a terrible bad

The story was told by a police com
inlssioner of another city who was In
New Orleans recently on n visit.
"The most Ingenious murder 1 evci
knew anything about," he said, "was
committed by a young physician. He
was a rising practitioner at a place
where 1 formerly lived, and, with your
permission, I will speak of him simply
as Dr. Smith.

taken a wealthy planter whom they
both knew very well, and whom 1 will
call Colonel Jones. The colonel was a
prominent resident of the doctor's
home town and had a large outlying
estate, which he was In the habit ol
visiting once a week.

drunk. Ue promptly paid his 10 shil-

later a stylishly dressed woman was
charged with a similar offense. As
she gave the same name and address I
concluded they were husband and wife.
So I called on them, ami my visit was
repealed several times. They had a
very nice home, kept two servants and
hnd four children. I noticed a bonny

How   Gienernl   Lee   Cut   an   Exported
Point   Properly   Fortified,
The late Major General Harry Heth
was the only man iu the Confedi rate
army whom General Lee called by his
first name. Lee addressed even his two
sous us "General." Heth had been the
friend of his youth, and Lee loved and
trusted him profoundly. Yet his love
did uot cause the commander in chief of
the Confederate army for a moment to
forget his duty, as is shown by an IncI
dent described In The Century.
One day before Petersburg Lee rode up
to Ileth's tent and said, "Many, I should
like to ride down your line."
iietb was niu.h flattered at the pro
posal. and as they rode side by side hi
pointed out positions of danger and van
tage. Suddenly tbey came upon a place
of much Importance where for several
hundred yards there wore no fortificu
lions. Surprised, Lee turned to his friend
for an explanation. Heth said that he
had ordered defenses for tills spot and
had supposed them finished.
"See that they are completed nt once.
Harry," said Lee, and. turning his horse,
he rode back to b.udquiirters.
After a few days the general again ap
pen red at Ileth's tent with the same pro
poHal, and the delighted officer sprang to
his horse. Arrived at the ill fated spot.
to Ileth's dismay, it was found still open

wondering what his punishment would
he.    Lee spoke In his kindest tones,
"Harry.'' hi- said, "that horse your wife
rides worries me more than I can tell.
He kicks and fights the bit till I fear he
will cither break her delicate wrists or
pull her arms out of their sockets. Now
the best way to take the edge off a nervous horse is to give him plenty of exercise—-regular exercise—morning and night,
until he quiets down. For the sake of
your wife as well as yourself, I beg you
to make the experiment, and I know of
no better place for you to ride the horse
while taming him than just up and down
in front of that gap I ordered you to have
closed until a good breastwork has been
completed.   Good evening, sir."
The rebuke was given kindly, even affectionately; yet the recipient declared
that he never slept a wink that night,
and for days afterward felt as If he had
been beaten with a club.
Due   to  the   Presence  of  Snlnlinr   In
(lie Vegetable.
It is Interesting to make inquiry into
the cause of this unfortunate quality of
the onion. It is simply due to the presence in some quantity of another mineral
matter in the bulb—sulphur. It is I his
sulphur (hat give:; the onion its germ
killing property and makes ihe bulb so
very useful a medicinal agent at all limes,
hut especially in the spring, which used
to be—und still is iu many places—the
season for taking brimstone and treacle
in old fashioned houses before sulphur
tablets came Into vogue.
Now, sulphur, when united to hydrogen, one of the gases of water, forms
sulphureted hydrogen aud then becomes
a foul smelling, well nigh u fetid, compound. The onion, being so juicy, has a
very large percentage of water in its tissues, aud this, combining with the sulphur, forms the strongly scented and offensive substance called sulphurct of al-
lyle, which is found in all the alliums.
This sill phu ret of a I lyle mingles more
especially with the volatile or aromatic
oil of the onion. It is identical with the
malodorant principle found in asafetida,
which is almost the symbol of all smells
that are nasty.
The horse radish, so much liked with
roast beef for its kern and biting property, anil Ihe ordinary mustard of our
tables both owe their strongly stimulative properties to this same sulphurct
of ullylc, which gives them heat and
acridity, but not an offensive smell, owing to ihe different arrangement of the
atoms in their volatile oils.
This brings us to a rnqst curious fact
in nature, that most strangely, yet most
certainly, constructs all vegetable volatile oils in exactly the same way—composes them all, whether I hey are the
aromatic essences of cloves, oranges,
lemons, cinnamon, thyme, rose, verbena,
turpentine or onion, of exactly the same
proportions, which are SS'/i of carbon to
\\'-'\ of hydrogen, and obtains all lhe vast
seeming diversities that our nostrils detect in iheir scent simply by a different
arrangement of the atoms in each vegetable nil. Oxygen alters some of these
hydrocarbons, sulphur others.

Through the Use of Dr. Williams' rink
Few bodily allliotioDB nre more terrible tliun disease of the heart. To
live iu constant dread and expectation
of death, sudden and with last farewells unspoken, is for most people
more awful to contemplate than the
most serious lingering illness. The
slightest excitement brings suffering
and danger to such people.
For several years Mis. Gravel, wifo
of P. H. A. Gravel, foremau iu Barry's
cigar factory St. John's suburb, Quebec was such a sufferer but thanks to
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills she is again
iu the enjoyment of good heulth. Mrs.
Gravel says;—
"My genural health was bad for several years, my appetite was poor, and I
was easily tired, but it was the frequent sharp pains and violent palpitation of my heart which caused me the
greuttst alarm. I tried many medicines, aud was treated by several doc-
tore, but iu vain. Finally X became so
poorly that I was not able to do auy
household work, and was frequently
confined to my bed. At the suggestion
of ono ol my friends I decided to try
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. After taking a tow boxes I began to guiu new
strength and rigor. Tho pains iu my
heart were less frequent and loss
scvero.and in every way my health was
improving. I coulinued using tho pills
until I had takeu eight boxes, when I
had completely recoverod my health.
I havo gained iu flesh; my appetite is
good, aud I am uble to do all my household work without foeliug the uwful
fatigue I was bofore subject to. I am
very thankful to Dr. Williams' Piuk
Pills, for they have truly released mo
from much suff, .-ing, nnd I hope that
others may bo iuduoed to try this wonderful medicine."
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills cure by going to the root of tho disease. They
renew and build up the blcod, aud
strengthen the nerves, thus driving
disease from the syttem. Avoid
imitations by insisting that every box
you purchase is enclosed in a wrapper
bearing tho full trade mark, Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for Pale People. If
your deab r does not keep them they

The Winning Manner In Which Bill
Sterltt Handled n Demand For Increased Pay I.;. the Force on tbe
Old Dallas Times.
There are ways and ways of settling
labor strikes. The unions have used
the "sympathetic strike" plan, at times
securing a settlement >)y calliug out
the forces of allied trades. With the
"bosses" the lockout frequently has
dune the business. But there are methods of erasing differences between employers and employees which even Chicago has overlooked. .Strikes have
been settled by the bosses joining the
runks of the strikers, voluntarily assuming the posts of walking delegates,
directing the movements of the strlk
Ing army and dictating the time when
difficulties were declared off.
Proof of tbe power of this method
was furnished during the days of the
old Dallas Times. That Texas city
was but n struggling town then, with a
population that was getting close up to
the 2,000 mark. The editorial helm of
The Times had Just been seized by
William Sterltt, better known in Wash
Ington's and Texas' newspaper world
today as plain "Bill" Sterltt, the title
"colonel" frequently being prefixed In
recognition of Ills birthplace, Ken
The Times under the Sterltt regime
employed five men and one woman In
Its manufacture. The latter was the
wife of the foreman of the printing
room and worked at the "cases," while
the "printer's devil" performed double
duty by acting as the motive power of
the hand press. The foreman during
his younger days had had an argument
with a mule, and the scars of that battle which decorated his face had aided
In securing bis reputation of being "a
bad man In a mlxtip." Shortly after
the new hand press had begun the
molding of editorials aud the sharing
of subscription donations ranging from
garden truck to overworked farm stock
uneasiness lodged in The Times oflice.
Humors of labor troubles and of union
organization were heard.
"We've concluded to quit," said the
foreman as be stalked Into the editor's
sanctum one morning backed up by the
entire mechanical force. "We don't
get union pay, and we've organized a
chapel. If you don't show up more
money, your paper don't get out, that's
"doing to strike, nre you?" queried
Sterltt, who had not found promises of
a direct road to wealth and Wall street
through The Times. "Unionized, nre
you? Well, sir, I'm glad to hear It. I've
been thinking for some days of going
on a strike myself. Tbe circulation of
this concern isn't extremely feverish,
and none of tbe subscribers will ever
miss us. and If they do It will be to our
benefit. The few blocks of white paper
out there will keep, and I guess the
hand press won't object to a day off.
l'es, sir, we'll strike right here and
now. We'll just walk around the corner and celebrate the Inauguration of
this 'walkout' with a drink."
The foreman's wife here transferred
her share of arbitration power on the
masculine contingent and departed.
Tlie quintet expressed some surprise
at the turn of affairs, but followed Sterltt to the corner saloon, where three
rounds of drinks were put away under
his direction.
"You see," began the foreman, "we're
ready to go right back to work now If
you'll pay"—
"No, slr-ee," broke In tho editor.
"Why, we've Just struck, nnd I couldn't
call things off now. Hold on, I tell
you, and we'll win out."
The Times oliice was closed up, the
windows nailed down and the oflice cat
turned loose to forage. On the fourth
day the foreman approached Sterltt
und sounded him as to the advisability
of declaring the strike at an end.
"Can't do it," was the answer. "Why,
I'm having the best time of my life.
Hang out. and we'll win, 1 tell you. If
1 could find another union around here,
we would have one of Ihose sympathetic affairs. Nop; the strike's not off,
nnd I hereby Issue another prouuncia-
mento to that end. Resides that, the
people nre beginning to find out they
need ti paper, I'm In this strike for
Then they liquored several times, nnd
tlie foreman left.
On the ninth day the striking army
of live conferred with the self appointed walking delegate. They contended
thnt they were ready to resume their
end of the work of shaping public opinion nt the old schedule of weekly pay.
Sterltt was obdurate and advised further hostilities for several dnys. On
the fourteenth day he wns called on to
accept n most sweeping capitulation
The next day the band press began its
grind, the foreman, who had not lived
up to his reputation as a "bad man,"
took his wife ami Ills followers back to
the "eases," and Sterltt continued the
Work of gathering "Items" and build-
Ing editorials. At the close of the clay's
woik the force was summoned to the
"Next time," advised the editor, "you
don't want to stop when you've organized a 'chapel. Yon want to go ahead
and organize and build a whole cathedral.   That's all."
