To the day of his death -although he nad relinquished the reins-of office his influence was! paramount in this district. There was good reason for this. People may question the right'or reason of many of his actions, and ftie course he pur- sw-d in tho interests of the miners, but no ono can say that he ever spared "himself or did not put bis -soul into his work. His death1 at this time is, beyoind a doubt, due to his getting up from a sickbed last spring to enter vigorously into the struggle which lasted so long. Not only did he give many years of nis Hfe in servica to his fellow workers but ihst service caused his untime- ly death. To the general public, Prank Sher- man was acknowledged to bo a man of brilliant parts in'many ways, an aetute leader, and a determined fight- er. His views were often considered extreme and his actions ill-judged week. This .means a good deal for the busin-es men along the line and for LethLridge and Great Falls as well. best known physicians.
