Flag Incidents.  -In the town of Marquette in  the  State of Michigan a British subject  convicted   of tearing   down   aud  trampling "upon    the   Stars   aud  Stripes, bus just been fined $10 and  sent to jail for thirty days.    Drunk  or sober if the man was guilty the  punishment,,  was  not  more .than  sufficient,to fit the crime.    No perron, whether citizen or alien, should  bo allowed to offer  degradation   to  the    flag    which  rightfully  floats  above him.  Had the offender been au American  citizen 'instead  of a  British  subject', he doubtless  would  have  been    more   severely dealt with.  He Would have- been  guilty of a  political crime, whereas the Briton  only committed an act of rowdyism.  That the appearance of the flag itself  was the sole provocation   is  scarcely   probable. -   Possibly tho  man was goaded to the act  by  the  taunts or boasts of people about  him, for in  the presence of newcomers from British lands some of  da during June was 41, a decrease of  eight, compared with the previous  month, but an increase-of 11 compared with June 1906. About 262  establishments and 5,728 employes  were' "affected by these dis'putes,  whose beginiiing during the month  involved about 7S establishments  and 3,724 employes.  Tbe loss of time to employes  through trade disputes during June  was appoximately 54,710 working  days, compared with a loss of  SS,325 days in May, and 38,215  days iu June 1900.   '  Of the 4 L  disputes in existence  during the month, 23  were terminated either by definite settlements  being   reached,   or  by  industrial  conditions ceasing to be affected.  Thirteen disputes were settled  by  negotiations between  the   parties  concerned,    two   were   settled  by  conciliation,     one    through     the  friendly mediation of the  Depart^  ment of Labor,   and  one  through  the Bureau of Conciliation of Quebec, and eight disputes were terminated without negatiotions.  In seven disputes that were  terminated the employers were  successful, ten ended in favor of  tlie employes, compromises were  affected in three cases, and in two  the strikers were partially successful.  escap"e of a suspected  character is  under his coutrol.

One of the  best means of holding and procuring trade is to advertise liberally.  The big mail order houses are the  greatest advertisers in the world  and their small and envious rivals  j would do well to remember this.  Many of the merchants who are  continually growling about people  sending east for their, goods do the  same thing themselves. To save a  dollar they will patronise the cheap  printing offices_of the east when  they want a$5 job and fall dead if  a local paper asks them for an ad.

The "Old Man" has the  name of an orator, bus made Cran-  brook famous and knows Kootenay  as well as he does the "Cap case."

HELL AND THE SUN.  Now we know why  April,   May  and June of this year  were the  coldest on record.    The heat of the  sun is kept up by the burning of  sinners, the  sun being  really  the  seat and scene of the infernal  regions and the world has been getting  soimuch better recently that the supply of sinners for purposes of  fuel  has, in a considerable degree, failed  and abnormaly cold weather on the  earth and other planets is the result.  Such, at least, is the inference to  be drawn from the important discoveries made by Rev. Zeb Hetzel  Copp, Pastor of the New York avenue Prcsbytesian Church in Washington, and minister in charge of  the Bethany Mission Chapel in that  city. Mr. Copp demonstrated conclusively that hell is not in the  centre of the earth as is commonly  supposed, since the lire there iB undoubtedly going out; and there is  moreover, as he points out, "nothing to indicate that such a fire  exists iu the inteaior of the earth  as is described in the book of Revelation."

THE TRAPPER'S   FAVORITE.  ���������  Iu the estimation of trappers and  voyageurs of eastern North America  as well as in the eyes of the very  rich nobility of Russia and Siberia,  there is only one king of beasts,  and the name of this beast is the  the big and radiantly shining black  fox, which roams over the cold and  barren hills that stretch from' east  of the Penobscot River, in  Maine,'  through New. Brunswick and Nova  Scotia, and skipping the mouth of  the St. Lawrence River,- extend in  diminishing ���������  hummucks   through  western Labrador and end in the  hillocks and Laureiitian formations  which surround Hudson Bay..  Those who seek the choicest aud  most expensive furs known to man  and are willing to pay any price  for what they want, must go to the  bleak coast line of eastern North  America for what they want and  may have to wait for years to secure pelts that will match perfectly  with other skins which are to go  toward making up a set; for the.  black fox of North America���������le  Reynard noir of the French hunters���������wears the most valuable overcoat.of any animal on earth.  As a rule about five perfect pelts  from black foxes are captured every  year, and of these three are bought  by the great Hudson Bay Fur Co.  or its tributary associations.  Though Maiiin alone furniahes more  than seven thousand fox skins-  every year, and though nearly five  thousand men spend most of the  winter in trapping and -poisoning  foxes and other animals for their  furs,  only two times' in the run  of  twelve months are the combined of tQe Province in London should  efforts of these individual hunters not mi'8S tlie present opportunity of  able to secure a black fox. -:      calling attention of the mining  iu-  In no way except in  color does   ve9.toi's of Great Britain  and  par-  the black fox differ from  its con-~ ticnJ'B������'ly of Loudon,' to the spleu  geuor, the ned fox, whose pelt sells   did exploitation  that lies, in  this  into something that will pay him  good i n terest for a long time.

The  shares of the South African mines  have steadily  declined since   the  South    African    war   until there  seems to be ho hope of their advancing again. ' The recent labor  disturbances and the trouble over  Chinese labor'havo caused a drop in  profits.    There has been a collapse  in  the Siberian  mines,   while- in  Austrailiau ��������� stocks the failure of  the plans of the Zinc Corporation  and the Deep Leads have had a bad  effect.    This'has affected the British  Columbia  shaVes  unfavorably  and Le Roi arid Le Roi Two have  slumped owing to 'the   depressed  condition of the market.   The unfavorable  condition  of  mining in  South   Africa,   Siberia,   and  Australia should turn the attention of  British investors to British Columbia.'   Here the mines are producing more ore and,'making larger  profits than ever iu  their  history.  The conditions for mining are  better here than in any  of  the conn-  tries i-u which the British  investor  has interests, the " laws are favorable for mining,   wood  and  water  are   plentiful,   and  its means "of  transportation, so vital to  mining,  are improving.    The agent general  of the province in  should have their inning on the  Britisn narket the same as Aus-  traifia and South Africa have. It  is certain that a period of great  activity in mining i'b not far away.  We   are headquarters   for nine  groceriee   and satisfactory   prices  Russell-Law-Caulfield Co.

MARSHALL, Prop, g  owjned fenced game presorves, have  spent vast sums of money in buying young foxes alive and  turning  them loose within private enclos-  encloaures.    A pair of living red  foxes can be bought for four dollars  and twenty five cents,  and a pair  of silves greys bring from five hundred to eight hundred hollars.    In  the country town of Dover, Maine,  Elijah Norton,   an-old  hunter,  is  breeding red and silver grej fox  j pups and selling them to rich sportsmen at a big profit.    Within  the  last six years there have been born  within his fenced enclosure more  than three hundred red pups,  and  something like fifty other fox pups  that are either silver grey or are  approaching   that   color.    Norton  has found that the offspring from  silver grey parents are in a  majority of cases silver gtey,   though  a  sprinkling   of red   pups is found  from the grey ancestry,   even as  grey pups now and  then  develop  from pure red stock.    But at no  time has he over  been   made glad  by the advent of a black pup in his  kennels.  By mid by ib may bo that some  skilled   or fortunate  breeder will  produce a black pup. or perhaps a  pair of black foxes may bo captured  alive and from these, a new  breed  of domesticated   black foxes  will  arise and cause a great panic among  tho men who hunt for black foxss.

The paper is what  might be expocted of John, editorially strong, and typographically  neat. The subscription is Sf> per  annum in advance. The Empire  starts off with two timber notices  as the advertising patronage, but,  as" soon as business houses have  opened up the advertising space,  will fill. Before a year-it is not  unlikely that The Empire will be  issued dailly.    Success,  Tiik acquittal of Haywood at  Boise Idaho, was, perhaps, a surprise to even his friends-in this section of (he of the West. It was  believed that both political and  corporate interests expected a conviction, and the best that unionists  hoped for was a disagreement.  The length of time elapsing between the arrest and trial, would  lead co the conclusion that the intention of the authorities was to  secure a conviction at any cost.  Thc verdict, therefore, is a surprise to many. It was a very narrow escape, and will be a lesson to  men holding "responsible positions  in labor organizations to be niore  careful in tbe futuae. Jiaywood  was not alone .01: trial, but the  Western Federation of Miners, and  with it all labor organizations.  The states of Colorado and Tdaho,  and the Republican form of government as constituted in the JJnited  States, were also on trial. Colorado, for allowing residents of the  state to be abducted without giving  them a hearing-in their own defense: the state of Idaho, for being  a party to the abduction, and for  not bringing the case to a jury at  once; the United States in that the  federal government did not redress-  the wrong done by the two states  in abducting the men, and the  state of Tdaho for suspending the  habeas corpus. The president of  the I'nited States committed an indiscretion iu declaring the prisoners "undesirable citizens" before  they were brought to trial, thus  prejudicing the case. Imagine the  king of England publicly expressing an opinion  as to  the  guilt or  are ignored. The man' McPharland  could not ply his nefarious calling  in any country where the majority  of the people were civilized. There  would be no necessity for such a '  creature. The whole trouble in  .Idaho and Colorado has been the  result of too great licence allowed  extremists on both sides. Property 1  has been destroyed and men have 1  been recklessly murdered ��������� because1  neither side was surlioiently civilized to respect the rights  of' tho other. It is to be  hoped that the mine owners of Col-  orado-and Idaho have been taught-  a lesson, and also the unionists' of  those two states. Had the verdict  been "guilty"'. Haywood, an innocent man, would have been tbe  victim, and with him Mover and  Petfcibone, and unionism throughout the world would- have been  condemned. Thc leaders in the  unionist ranks ought to be very  careful in their expressions. There  are persons in every organization  whose intelligence is, not of a very  high order, and who may be incited  by chance remarks let fall by their  leaders to do acts of violence.

The circumstances leading up to the trial  have proved conclusively that the  liberty of the individual i" less respected in the United States than  under any monarchical form of  government in Europe, with tho  possible exception of Russia. Thc  one redeeming feature of the case  was the impartiality of the trial  judge. He allowed neither corpor-  p.orate interests nor political  prejudice to interfere with his  duty to the state and to the  accused. The trial is over and the  acquittal .will be of little value if  a lesson has not been taught to labor organizations, Labor unionism is hot anarchy. Its objectB  and aims are by lawful means to  obtain fair remuneration for labor  ac tually performed, and to improve  the condition of unionists goner-  ally. In Idaho and Colorado  brute force has been resorted to by  both labor and capital and many  lives recklessly sacrificed.
