This week I have received the names of a wait- ress and a cook. The former has had a first-class was head i waitress in one ol the principal ho- tels out west, and can furnish ex- cellent references. The latter has al- so had a first-class experience, and I trust this column will be thu means of procuring them tho desired situations.

The proceeds will be forwarded to the Fernie Trades and Labor Council (or disbursement. The C. p. R. have for th6 past month or two bcea quietly preparing for the machinists' strike so far as it concerns the West. The employ- ment of a large number of Japs somo time agoimade a number of us sit up and think, but now that ite machinists are out the reason ex- plains itself. It is pitiable to wiUt lengths the capitalists are prepared to go to their efforts to beat or aim a blow at unionism. For cents, which the CJ.I'.H. can well af- ford to pay, this great company are prepared to risk the lives of every passenger on their service. Thug, it was- not surprising to learn that the passenger train from Macleod was held up near Granum yesterday mor- ning. The accident was result of a broken brake beam, cause i v jp- er inspection at Macleod, due to the strike. And long before the Com- pany give in there will be other ac- cidents, involving loss of life per- haps, which would he most regrett- able. As yet, 1 have not all the facts of the case from the machinists point of view, but when a strike ef- fecting a body of men reaching from coast to coast is declared, they sure must have good reason for declaring a strike. I hope they win out, and at an early date.

A public meeting was held in Hin- on's Hall last evening to discuss Bylaw No. 31; which is for the pur- ose of raising by deben- tures. The meeting was not any- thing like as well attended as it should have been. The Mayor oc- cupied the chair and explained the object of the meeting arid also the bylaw. The greater part of the 000 is to be expended in cutting, a canal from a point near Mr. Kern- mis' house, through the Morden es- tate to a point near the bridge at the bottom of Christy Avenue. This would do away with a big loop which the present channel takes the water through, and along which most of the damage is done. From Chris- ty Avenue to a point near where St. John's Avenue runs into the ceeek, a crib will be built to protect the bridge. This crib work is the por- tion which it is expected the Provin- cial government will undertake.
