REPORT AND DENIAL That Miners Will Stand For a Closed Shop. (Frank Paper.) Action on at least' ono wry important matter was taken by tho dls -trtct board of United Mine Workers of Air.erlco at the convention hold at lothbrldgc tho middle of last month. It was deckled that when tho contracts between the mine workers and the coal operators of the district, expire In March, the organization will demand the closed shep at all the mines In the district which include* Alberta and East Kootcnay. Wages it is stated, will r.ot enter Into tho discussion of tho ternw of tho new agreement to any great extent although Increases in the pay for some classes of work will be asked. Ono point on which somo controversy do> velop. will bo with regard to pillar work. Tho men working in pillars have been getting tho sumo contract price as diggers, a question, concerning which there has t>cen some controversy already at some of tho mines. That price is not stipulated in the preacnt agreements but the operators have been paying it although they, In some cases at least, cons'd er, It too high.

BERESFORD'S CAREER Colored Woman Makes Claim Upon His Fortune. Blairmorc Times: The report that at the convention lately held in Lcthbridge by the District Board c the United Mino Workers that they declared for the closed shop after March 1st. next, is without foun datlcn. E. Adams NO PRINTERS THERE. (Great Falls Tribune.) It always gives the newspaper man a feeling of sadness to announce the sus|>ension of one of his ctontempor-aries. Generally to him it tolls a story of hope deferred and a busi -ncss struggle against such difficulties that even tho optimistic newspaper proprietor is obliged at last tothrow up his hands and confess failure. No such feeling as this goes, however, with the recent announcement of its retirement from the journalistic fk-kl of the Ohio Penitentiary News, which has flourished for a number of years uHhout missing un issue. The reason given by the newspaper for ,ts suspension Is not loss of advertising patronage or subscribers, but the fact that there is not a single printer in the state penitentiary to get out the sheet. They have clergymen and financiers thcro and all kinds and conditions of men except printers. They are all good ar.d they never get in tho penitentiary any El Paso, Tex.,Dec. 80.-"Lady Flo" Wohf, a nogress, with whom De-Laval Beresford, a brother of Rear-Admiral Lord Charles Beresford of the British navy, lived for flfteou years In tho wilds of Mexico, is preparing to contest the will on tho ground that she was the nobleman's common law wife. She was bequeathed only $10,000 from an estate that is estimated to be worth hundreds of thousands. "Lady" Beresford, as tho woman styled herself, although slto is men  tioned in the will as "Flora Wotft," doclanus she will inaka a strong light Stories that she saved Beresford's life in a yellow fever opldemic are told by ..her. She says the nobleman picked her up yeans ago and insisted that she livo with him as his wife. The estate Is left to Lord Charles and Lord Marcus Bcreaford, brothers by the will revealed on tho death of De-Laval in the Soo wreck a week ago. Beresford was a queer character, though worth several hundred thou  sand dollars he dressed in the garb of the plains, and 1'ved a life on uneven as any of tho Mexican peons who worked for him. Except for an occasional trip to 'El Paso with his negro companion, ho had no other diversion' than riding after his hound on his big estate and travelling between Canada and Mexico looking after) his cattle interests He shipped the cattle from Mexico to Canada, fattened them near Medicine Hat, and sold them to Canadian butchers. He looked after all his own affairs. Beresford drank heavily until two years ago, when he and "Lady Flo" took a cure In this city. Since then neither had been known to drink heavily. Hiis principal associates were bartendors and. hackmen when he came to town. She always came tc El l*aao.w+th him. He once vea arrested and fined for appearing in%thc streets with her. Coming to America with a few hun dred pounds, he bought up ranch lands In Mexico at comparatively nothing and stocked them with blood ed cattle. He prospered to such an exrent that it will require months to ap -praise his estate. He had two ranches'in Chihuahua alone, one containing 10U.000 acres and the other 78.000. At the time of his death, there was on deposit in tho First Nationalbank of El, Paso 875,000 to Imy the Amal-lcr ranch if he | had decided to accept the terms. His larger ranch was better stocked and was worth at least three times ns much. He Vino owned property in El Paso, New Mexlcr and Canada and had cattle in New Mexico as well as Canada and Mexico- Beresford visited his old home in England but onco since coming to America. Wh'.n Lord Beresford was in America two years ago and visited Mexico he did not even reply to Do i Laval's lnvitatitn to visit him. The will of tho deceased provides that his remains be buried in Ireland. Admiral Beresford has cabled �to Judge Leigh Clark legal representative of the deceased, to have tho remains shipped to Minneapolis. He also wired to have the will opened, which Judge Clarke did today. announces to his old friends and customers he has opened a General Lumber Business On Baroness Road, east of the Coi.rt House Plasterirg!

The Cleveland News in commenting on this interesting topic gives tho printer this little swell- not undeserved- It says that "tho Ohio jwnitontiary News, for mar.y years a famous and flourishing daily paper published ty convict*, has suspended publication, for tho very good reason that there is not loft in that big penal institution a singlo man who can handle type. There is not a printer iu the Ohio penitentiary. Bankers arn there in plenty. More than 20 are there, and more are on tho way. Several convict banks might lie operated with men to spare. Enough lawyers are there to lake care of an enormous amount of legal business. Doctors, brokers and other "emicunlly respectable" citizens are not lacking. Business men, farmers, mechanics and representatives of almost every other department of industrial activity are common there. But there is not one printer. Tho fact throws new light on a character that baa long been comtiion'y misjudrnd. The printer today is a home otrner. He is a fixed employment and is the head of a family. Ho is-and always was-far above the average man in Infonne -�tion and intelligence. All the not -able events of human life pass through his hands and make Impress on his brain. Tho fact that more than 20 bankers are in the Ohio penitentlury, and not one printer, tells of the'rolatlvo history of the printer to-day-and telle more. It tell8 us that tho meat common and most dangerous crimes of torVy are being committed not by ta> world's workers." THE GRIP. CHURCH DIRECTORY. To think you have attained contentment In to lr�e It.
