Sherman, President District  Union No. JS, Fernie :  I received this morning recommendation   of   person   to   act   as  member   of   board   on   behalf   of  Crow's Nest  Pass Coal  company.  I refused to appoint person recommended  on ground  that   he had  a direct pecuniary interest in issue  of dispute, and informed company  that unless a suitable party were  named   within  twenty-four hours  government would itself make appointment of person to act as company's representative.    Am reliably informed [tonight that all companies have "named  duly qualified  representatives; will-wire you name  or names tomorrow morning and  will do all.in my power to see that  board is constituted as speedily as  possible.    Act���������requires its  establishment within  15 days from receipt   of   application   at   outside.  Hope you will use best efforts to  explain exact situation and provision of act to men.    Notwithstanding notice .which operators   have  given as to change of wages and  hours, operators are prevented under section 57 of act from altering  conditions of employment with re-  Governm'ent Should Own.  CrUKRNWOOD.������B. C.,  Editor tho Ledge:  April 21',, 1007.  Dioau Sru���������Tho present troubles  in the coal-fields at the Crow's  Nest Pass makes plain the folly of  having so important a public necessity as coal owned by individuals, and the mines operated for private gain.    \  Coal is the motive power for all  the industries. of this province.  Without coal our railroads smelters and mines are useless, thousands of men are thrown out of  employment, production practically  ceases and business suffers to a  corresponding 'degree, while on the  prairies and .sparsely timbered districts hundreds 'of families suffer  from lack of fuel.  Taking these facts into consideration, its seems absurd that the  whole available supply cf coal for  the interior and eastern parts of  this province should bo under tho  control of a few men whose solo  aim is to extract all possible profit0  from the industry, regardless of  methods and inconvenience to the  public.  I 'think it is now the duty of  every man���������who would like to see  our industries established on a firm  basis,  and   who wishes to  guard  against the possibility of having to  break  up his piano and burn it,  along with his parlor floor to keep  from freezing���������to enter an enormous   protest   to   the   government  against the present iiiethods7)f"caT-  rying on this industry, and demand  that the government coal deposits  be developed and operated for the  benefit of the public and  of the  province.  Then, and not till then, will a  calamity like wo nre facing today  bemado impossible..  Wat. B. Emiiukk.  spect to wages or hours until dispute has been finally dealt with by  board, so that employees may be  assured that conditions under which  they have- been  working will be  continued until board has reported,  unless a satisfactory settlement is  effected in interval.    Board is being   established    on'  applications  made on behalf of employees. Sincerely hope,  therefore, that if, as  mentioned in  Mr. Eckstein's telegram  to deputy   minister   today,  numbers of   men   have,' through  any  misunderstanding quit work,  they will resume work immediately  so that they may have full benefit  of provisions of act in  the matter  of an investigation and not become  liable for breach  of its provisions  by going on strike before an investigation has taken place. I  ,' Rudolphs Lemieux,  Minister of Labor.  they are working.  These statements appear to me  most misleading and calculated to  give members of   union   entirely  wrong impression  of   facts.    The  act  requires   the   constitution   of  board within 15 days  from receipt  of application.'   Board  will  be established within this time.    I will  insist that its enquiry shall  be expeditiously conducted and will continue to see that no  technicalities  of any kind are allowed to delay  proceedings.    In the meantime, by  section  57  of   act,   employers are  prevented from altering conditions  of  employment   from   what   they  have been in the pas'b with respect  to wages or hours,   until dispute  has   been   finally dealt ���������with   by  board'.    The statement in circular  as to enforcement of act at Taber  also appears to me to be misleading.  Would ask you to kindly give contents of this message  every publicity,   so   that   employees   who,  through any misunderstanding may  have   quit "work   at   any  of the  mines, will see the reasonableness  of resuming immediately, so that  they may have full benefit of provisions of act in the matter of'in  vestigation aud not become liable  for breach of its provisions by going on strike before such has taken  place.  Rudolph Lemieux, ,  Minister of Labor.  &  3f.  Fernie, April 17. ^  Hon. Rudolpe Lemieux, Minister  of Labor, Ottawa: '  Your telegrams will all be published at once. Statements in circular absolutely true. We know  what section 57 of act states. But  who is going to enforce law if, operators decide to break same? You  are extremely careful not to commit 3'our department to enforcing  the act. Men will not resume  work until settlement is reached on  jiisc basis.  F. II. Shkkmax.  Fernie, April 10.  Hon. Rudolphe Lemieux, Minister  of Labor, Ottawa:  Your advice too late; over 2,000  men already quit mines upon their  own   individual   initiative.      Our  people believe investigation will bo  big farce.    Impossible to hold our  men at work since operators decided to ignore district union and  posted notices on pit heads calling  for reductions from  10 to 40 per  cent,   together with longer hours  and harsher conditions.  .   Siuce your government refused  to enforce law at Taber Our confidence is shaken and our men simply  gave notico.and drow their time.  We hope to got another conference this week with operators and  hope for speedy adjustment.  F. II. SlIKItJCAX.  Cttawa, Onb., April IS, 1907.  F. H. Sherman:  Replying to your telegram received today asking who is going  to enforce law if section 57 of act  is violated by the operators. It is  the duty of courts to enforce law  in all cases where informations are  laid in accordance with provisions  of act; you or any other persom  may lay information and secure  enforcement should violation occur.

Alex. Robinson has completed  his contract on the Crown Silver,  adjoining the Sunset in Deadwood  camp.

An average of a little better  than three feet a day was made,  netting the contractor upwards of  $10 for each day's work.

Had we been able to secure  a good band, we should certainly  have held our celebration as usual,  as the funds at our disposal  were  ample to provide an excellent day's  amuseme'ut.     But no  music was'  available,^ however,  and   we will  make the best of the situation and  celebrate among ourselves, and do  our best to make'the day a pleasant   one   for   those visitors from  neighboring towns  who  may elect  to spend the 24th of May with us.  Railway facilities,   of course, will  not be of the best, as the action of  those particular Greenwood people  above referred to''compelled ns to  decline 'the offer of the C. P.

No man is prohibited from smoking Magdala cigars.  The owners of the Bay mine are  unfortunate. They have between  $5,000 and $0,000 worth of oro on  the dump as a result of the winter's  development. Owing to the bad  state of the road between the mine  and Greenwood they were unable  to haul this until this week,  and now neither the C. P.

A train loaded with construction material got away from  the engineer at a point about three  miles this side of Oroville, and at  a speed of 50 miles an hour crashed  into a light engine standing at the .  water tank.     The impact forced  thelight engine, on  top of a train -  of steel standing ahead' or 16. Virile .L-  the cars of the runaway train were  piled up in a confused mass thirty  feet high, burying tho fireman underneath.    Just previously to the  collision the engineer of the runaway train appears to have left the  cab   after cutting off steam   and  made his way back along cho train  with  the object of applying   the  hand brakes, and when the collision occurred was hurled from the  train,  thus  probably   saving   his*  life.    Allan Eddy,  who was con-,  voying the train  from Bridesville  and Chepaca, was in the caboose,  but escaped with a severe shaking.  Customs Officer Gardony who was  on his  way   back from Cnepaca,  where he had been to clear a train-  load of construction  material, was  getting what sleep he could in a  car standing near the train of steel  when tho light engine was hurled  on top of it in au almost shapeless  mass of iron, with  dense clouds of  steam issuing   from   innumerable  rents in  the boiler.    Fortunately  for those in that particular car, the  switch happened to be set for the  sidetrack, or the engine would have  struck the car, with serious consequences to those iuside.   The six  injured   men,   consisting   of  two  brakemen,   two  firemen, one   engineer and a man  who had been -  working in tho yard,  presented a  horrible spectacle, with bones protruding,  limbs twisted, ears torn  off, besides  being badly cut and  bruised.    Everything was done to  relieve their sufferings,   but it is  IZ~S'"  Send us your grocery order and  have it filled to your satisfaction.  Our prices are right and goods tho  best.

They realizo, however, that it is  not tho work of the people of Greenwood, but of a few indfviduals,  who evidently do not appreciate  that a change of scenery and tho  absence of sickening smelter smoke,  fatally injured.

It is  to  be regretted that  hard feelings have been caused.   Tt  was understood that the people of  Midway had  decided  not to .celebrate this "year, and  a committee  was appointed   by  Mayor Bunting  to solicit subscriptions.    Later on,  when about 81,000 had  been sub  scribed, it was learned that Midway intended to celebrate.    A public meeting was called,   tho question thoroughly discussed, aud [it  was decided ^unanimously to celebrate.    There was  really no intention to interfere with Midway, but  after all   arrangements bad been  made   under the impression  that  Midway was not going to celebrate,  it was decided to go ahead.    The  people of  Greenwood regret that  ill feeling has been caused.  Tine frequency of strikes and  lock-outs in the coal mines of  Canada and the United States would  indicate that there is something  wrong in the method of conducting  the mines and tho system of contract work. The mine owners and  the men appear to be continuously  trying ono to take advantage of  the other. In their selfish desire  to rob one another no thought is  taken of other industries depending on a regular supply of coal and  coke. The only solution of the  coal mine troubles is for the government to take over the coal  measures and work the mines at a  stated wage per day to the men.  So long as the contract system is  in vogue there will be trouble be-  owner and worker. It affords both  parties opportunities to rob each  other and they do it. In a few  days the mining industry of Kootenay and the Boundary will be at a  standstill, manufacturing industries closed, and freight transportation stopped, because of the selfishness of two men���������Lindsay and  Sherman.

On a recent  Sunday    lie    said:     "Once   the  parent, then the teacher, then the  preacher   was   the   world's great  mentor;   now the editor is more  potent than them all.    We want a  purified press.    We want honest  editors.     People   generally  desire  newspapers   that   aro  clean   and  newsy.      Papers    are    gradually  growing   better.    The clergy can  do its part towards educating the  public, to patronize the clean, the  pure,   the   instructive,    tho   best  papers."'   Here is a  pointer for  ministers everywhere.    ISTo class of  professional men  owe more to the  newspapers than do the ministers,  yet how  rare it is to hear thefn  commending the newspapers.

If  I don't,   they say I am a   hog.

It is to this cause that the deaths of  the immense majority of-living beings is "due. - The malady docs not  always wait for old age before exercising its  ravages.    IIow  many  young men and women. are there,  apparently - in   flourishing health,  who are suddenly, fatally stricken  down  by maladies of  mysterious  origin, which, in reality, are nothing but -visible manifestations' of  the   arterial   hardening that   has  been going on' unknown to the victim.    Youth, however, may escape  these catastrophes ; old age hardly  ever, does.'   ,l%t ��������� we   reconstitute  the   physiological history   of any  invalid, of any one who is aged, of  any one whose death we have to  mourn, we sliall discover the same  characteristic'^! every case."   The  pulse had too strong a beat, the  blood circulated through channels  that were too narrow and too hard.  The excess of .'pressure is tho iii-  falible symptom  of tho imminent  arterial Hardening.    .  We shall understand the exact  position of affairs by imagining an  india rubber ttibe through which  ordinary lighting, gas is passing.^  Should the tube be slightly damaged or in any way blocked, au excessive pressure of the gas will tend  to produce fissures'in tho tube. Ke-  duce the pressure and the daugisr is  obviated. So it is with our arteries;  they are always in danger of the  blood circulating in them at too  great a pressure.  To moderate this pressure, after  it   has been  shown to   exist   by  means of that delicate instrument,  the sphygmometer, has-long been  one of the desiderata of modern  science, but so  far' everything has"  lamentably   failed   to   have   any  effect.    It seemed, in fact, that no  possible escape existed' from  that  sentence of death pronounced, apparently in an irrevocable manner,,  against   each   one' of   r.s.    Once,  however,   science has achieved a  victory over what was assumed to  be the inevitable,  and  has forced  nature to deliver hev prisoners and  spare the'victims she has marked  out for slaughter;    Fifteen years  ago    Professor    d'Arsonval    constructed   electrical   machines   in  which the currunt   "was reversed  something like half a million times  in the course of a second, and ho  discovered that animals,  such as  rabbits and guinea pigs, submitted  to these seemingly terrible electrical  discharges suffered no inconvenience whatever ; the onlv effect  was that their arterial  tension was  lessened.- These results he co.n-1  fluid in an instant has demolished  every impurity encumbering and  blocking up-arteries-and organs.  By suitable and simple treatment  the remains of these impurities,  broken up by tho" waves of electricity, may be permanently expelled from ' the system. -Thereafter the patient enters upon an  entirely new lease of-life. There  is. no longer any reason why he  should cither ago or'die. The road  to permanent health;, then, lies  through a careful observation of  the arteries, those" rivers which  bear life to all< our members, to  every organ���������great rivers of Paradise.���������Le Matin.-   .  to me: 'Good luck, 'Rastus; I  been tryin' to jine -dat ch'ch fo'  twenty'-years' mashe'i'."

" No, I tell you !" 'one of them  finally exclaimed, with impatience.  "What is the matter with you?  Look at those people���������they are not  scared to death."    *  " Oh, I'm not,scared," the man  replied ; "but if the ship was going  to founder I wanted to know a little ahead of time."*,"  "Oh,--wanted to wish your  friends good-bye,"and all that-?"

Railroad work has been greatly  retarded this week owing to alack  of   coal.      Construction   work   is  almost at a standstill except track-  laying   and   barely sufficient coal  can be secured to keep that crew at  work.    The track  laying crew is  now some distance across the line  some miles, and until this week the  ballasting crew was close behind.  No statement has yet been made as  to when the train service beyond  this place will  likely be inaugurated', but. it will probably be late in  the fall.    The next section  of tho  road to bo put in operation   will  probably be from hero to Kcrcmeos.

Looks Like Closing-.  The  Gran by  lias been  running  seven furnaces during the past week  or ten days, and some phenomenal  runs have been  made.    One furnace was blown out yesterday and  it seems probable that a general  close down  must-come   unless a  speedy   adjustment   of  the   labor  troubles   in   the coke country  is  eJl'eoted.    The management is not  able to say anything as to the situation in tho Crow's i\rcst Pass, and  Superintendent    Williams ' states  that, though they will run as long  as coke permits, their present supply will not last, more than a week.  The C.  P.  R. quit hauling ore on  Thursday, being short, of coal for  engines.

"A child's kiss set on thy sighing  lipi shall make thee glad. -  "A sick man helped by thee shall  make thee strong.  "Thou shall be served thyself in  every sense pf service which thou  renderest."  "We arc expected to be very prowl  of our having received immigration  from fifty-six countries. What does  this mean ? It means that we have  all at once taken  in  a volume of  heterogeneous population, much of  it probably alien to its not in race  only, but  in  character, social and  political;   ill-fitted,   therefore,  in  its present state to furnish  citizens'  of   the  Canadian  commonwealth.  We are told that we may trust our  public schools to do  tho work  of  assimilation.   In time, perhaps, we  may ; perhaps pretty soon, so far  as intellectual assimilation is concerned.    But the moral and political fibre needed by the  citizens of  a   free com 111 on wealth .is  not so  easily  imparted.    The  immediate  consequence in the Northwest is  said to be political  venality: thoI  alien immigrants being indifferent  to   politics,   to   which   they   are  strangers,   and  practically  selling  their votes through their head men.  At all events,  it surely would be  well   that   before   we dilute   our  nationality with a flood  of alien  elements, at the same time making  over the land to them, we should  have some view of the subject better considered and more forecast-  ri jiugjjthan. mere pride in numbers  .   and variety of immigration.���������Mail  i   and Empire.  1.907 wall papers now in stock.
