F. L. Sangstcr, counsel tor Foster, who was paymaster in districts in which Woodworth Keever acted as buyers and connection with the horse deals was censured bv Robert.

Mr. Foster Was Keen Mr gangster read telegrams sent hv Mr Poster urging Woodworth and K'ecvcr to come and testify before the commission, particularly as then absence was being interpreted as a reflection on himself.

Seeing nothing bti- er could he done at that tune Mr. Sanuster accepted the affidavits and asked the-commissioner's permission lo sign them.

These mountains about Fernie were not so rugged or so lofty 03 are those among which the Ital- ians are fighting, and we could form a slight idea of the task these men had set themse-ives when they under, took to scale them against the oppo- sition of Austrians behind scientifl rally constructed fortifications. "Along with Ihe speeches there.were o.ry, at the call of his officers, .to their places in the army. Some might think that to do so was sanctioning militarism, a thing which none hated more iban be did; but now it was not militarism, but pat- riotism which was calling to. them from their homeland, and it was ev- en- man's duty to respond promptly to that call. Parading'in the streets witll flags flying and bands playing was pleasant pastime, but it did not pav the debt they owed their country, in'this hour of peril. He should be glad to dispel from the minds of any Italian any idea he may have imbib- ed as to militarism. It is not now tnat kind of service demanded; It was the rendering that duty which calls to every Italian regardless of any mil- itary obligation to do his duty hy his country, now threatened by the very worst kind of militarism, that prompt- ed hv tvrennical men of a strange race who'were not only ancient robbers ot Italian liberty, hut who were leagued with the personification of tyrannical ondage. Signor Dicastrl was greeted with reouent cheers and a demonstration rhich left no doubt as to the temper if his hearers. a very modeut one, was given the distinction of the only iieroistent call for repetition during the even- ing This was nothing more than a most exacting execution of a selection on mouth harp and bones.
