This picture was taken this spring
three miles up the Chlckamus river.
The boys sre all members of the "Blue
Label Fishing Club" and the trout (all
Dollies) were taken the first day out,
on gold devon minnows. This is what
I call high lite, the real, unadulterated
sport that Isaae Walton made famous.
How much more beneficial: It is for a
bunch oi unionists to spend their surplus cash out ln the wilds fishing or
hunting than to stay ln town joy riding and getting stewed'up. Tou
awaken ln the morning without that
Colorado Mature taste In your mouth,
and your bead does not feel out of
proportion. After the tripvls over snd
you are broke financially, but not physically, you never kick yourself and
talk' to yourself like the chap does
who never leaves the clustered lights.
These fishing trips sr thaclear thing.
These Ashing trips are thedear thing,
realisation and months of fond remembrance, i be only fault Is that they
don't come oftener. If we didn't belong to a labor union lt'S doubtful lt
they would come at all. The best time
to fiish the Chlckamus Is early spring
and late fall. If you are hot lucky
Pete will sell you Dollies at $1 apiece.

any of you get the Inspiration and go

Org. Wilkinson Hits it Off All
Right With the Miners and
Strengthens Labor Ties.
BBLLEVUE, Alta.,' Aug. 25.—J. W.
Wilkinson has held a number of organizing meetings, on behalf of the Trades
and Labor Congress of Canada, at
many of the camps of District 18,
United Mine Workers of America, In
the Crow's Nest Pass.
At Michel a good meeting was held,
In spite of the fact that since the
strike ot last year many of the miners,
who were ln the forefront of the fight,
have had to seek work elsewhere be
cause the operators refused to employ
them.
In Michel only 30 per cent, of the
miners are English-speaking men, the
balance of 70 per cent, are Slavs and
other non-English-speaking people
whose helplessness In this respect
suits the purposes of the operators
very well.
At Corbln work Is slack and there
are scarcely any miners there who
speak English.
Carbondale and Coleman . brought
forth a fairly large meeting.
Frank is very quiet, with very few
English-speaking miners there.
At Hillcrest on Sunday afternoon,
August 18, a successful meeting of
miners and others Interested ln the
labor movement was held. C. M.
O'Brien, socialist member tor Rocky
Mountain riding ln the provincial parliament of Alberta, was present at this
meeting, and also at Bellevue ln the
evening, which was one of the best
meetings of tbe tour.
Miss A, Stubbs secured eight subscriptions for the Western Clarion,
and Comrade O'Brien sold $8 worth ol
books.
As long as the TradeB Congress
sends organisers Into our camps who
understand the labor question from a
fundamental and scientific point of
view, we shall tolerate our connection
with that body.
The miners of District 18 are up
against a raw proposition and we do
not want men coming amongst us as
organisers who are so half-baked ae
to think that the workers have anything In common with their Liberal
and Conservative masters.
The Congress, ln sending Wilkinson
amongst us, made a wise choice.

NEW OPERATIONS
BUT OLD CONDITIONS
NEAR CUMBERLAND
Company  Ownership  of Mines,
Land, Hotel), Stores and
Lives of Workmen,
NANAIMO, Aug. 25.-In visiting
Cumberland last week, I visited the
sinking operations at what Ib known
as No. 8. On visiting this camp one
can see this Is going to be a large
camp tn the near future. There are
two new shafts being sunk, and much
land being cleared and levelled down
for the plant.
Any one visiting this camp and look-
Ing at the conditions under which the
men have to live, can readily understand what conditions are going to he
In the future. The bunkhouses, in
which the men have to live, are worse
than any stable which can be visited lt
Cumberland, and the wonder is there is
not a plague. The men have to wlrk
ln much water, and there Is no place
to dry their clothes other than the sun
during the day, with a large fire at
night In their bunkhouse, and they
sleep in the same.
I have been informed there is no
probability of a hotel being built, as
the coal companies own all the land
and are reserving It for the future.
At No. 7 the companies also own the
land and have built scores of houses,
and will not allow any private Individual to build or let a place for storehouses to them.
A large store and building, which is
supposed to be for a saloon, Is also
being built by the local companies.
The workers can readily understand

THE MINERS' UNION
Cumberland Widow Turned Down
By Coal Company—Miners
Boycott Company Ally.
CUMBERLAND, V. I., Aug. 26.—The
members ot Local 2299, U. M. of A.,
have appointed two representatives to
take up a collection on behalf of Mrs.
Logan, the widow mentioned ln pre*
vtous Issues of The Federatlonist. The
miners and most of the business men
gave liberally. There was one regret
table exception, however. Mr. Slaughter of the City Market butcher shop,
who secures most of his business from
the miners snd workers of the camp,
refused to put up a nickel. It Is more
than probable that the miners will determine to help those who appreciate
the patronage of working men,
The bare existence the miners receive makes It Impossible for most ot
them to provide for their families
while alive, let alone saving enough
money to keep a widow and children
in case of the death of a bread-winner.
As a miner of twenty-three .years'
experience I can assure a blacksmith
of Cumberland and others of his pet
opinions that about all the pleasure
of life we can hope to enjoy is to work
in bad air, ln a dark, damp hole, full
of powder smoke, lamp smoke and coal
dust, with little prospect of putting
aside anything for the proverbial rainy
day. The bosses, under corporate ownership of tbe mines Instead of collective, have it bo arranged that the competition of the labor market compels
to oat dust and work, eat und

Lotteries.
J. Francis Burslll, a London editor
ot over 40 years' standing, writing under the nom de plume of "Felix
Penne" In the "Chinook," a South Vancouver weekly, bas this to say regarding lotteries: "At- one time England
had 'state lotteries,' and a blue-coat
boy was used to draw the numbers
trom a big revolving wheel. Plate lotteries were abolished, p.ud with their
abolition went the only chance some
poor beggars bad for a rise ln lite,
for there are many millions of men
doomed to toll for wages, only enough
to keep body and soul together, and
who have never had a chance of 'a
llfc-up.' I am not sure that a well-
regulated lottery could not bu made
a blessing—now and then."
what all this means—worse conditions | sleep-or quit and accept like condi-
and no reservations from their masters.
Perhaps a visit from the inspector of
camps may change some of the present
conditions at No. 8. G. P.

The regular monthly meeting was
held last Sunday afternoon at the headquarters In the Labor Temple.
President W. S. Armstrong and Alt.
H. England, the Vancouver delegates,
have not yet returned from the convention and only newspaper reports
are to hand of the Cleveland convention. This year's gathering was one
of the largest ever held, there being
about 500 regular delegates and about
3,00 visitors at the Sunday outing. Delegates Wolters, Mullen and Thrasher
were on the committees on miscellaneous business, label and thanks, respectively. Delegate Gltiln of Fresno
presented the gavel made tn that city.
The appeals committee was again appointed by the chair, Wolters of San
Francisco making the protest. Several
divisions were had In the vote on propositions presented. On the establishment of an employment bureau by the
I. T. U. the vote was 216 to 95 ln fa-1
tibns elsewhere, or permit ourselves
and families to starve. We are organizing for the purpose of remedying
these conditions and as soon as our
forces have the knowledge necessary
to alter the social system to meet modern requirements those changes will
be made. But one thing Ib certain: It
we ever expect to change the conditions we need look to none but ourselves to do the Job.

Overalls and Shifts
Tim satisfaction to be derived from wearing union-

LABOR SUNDAY.
Labor Sunday was first Instituted by
tbe Presbyterian Bureau of Social Sep
vice seven years ago, the Rev. Charles
Stelze being the originating factor.
This bureau has been merged into the
Federal Council Commission on the
Church and Social Service. The American Federation ot Labor has given Its
endorsement to the observance of Labor Sunday. This year the Federal
Council Commission Is making a systematic effort to have Labor Sunday
generally observed ln all churches
throughout the country, and Is sending
out literature, explanatory ln character, and urging pastors to feature this
day. Suggestions are ottered as to the
methods to be employed in securing a
good attendance of union men and
women, as well as the unorganised. It
Is also further suggested thst In all
Labor Sunday sermons the subject be
"One Day's Rest ln Seven tor All
Workers," with an offer to supply appropriate literature on this theme.
Charles S. Macfarland, secretary of
the commission, 1611 Clarendon
building, 215 Fourth avenue. New
York, can be communicated with If
any further Information Is desired. Labor Sunday falls on September 1 this
year.
LABOR DAY
Eighteen years ago (1894) at the
solicitation of the Trades and Labor
Congress of Canada the federal government enacted that the first Monday in September of each year be observed as a national holiday. Previous
to this, labor's annual holiday was
not uniformly held anywhere, for Instance, In Vancouver lt was held sometimes early ln August and late as September: In 1890 the late Mayor David
Oppenhelmer Issued a proclamation
tor a civic holiday on the occasion of
the first exclusive celebration of a
labor day held here. Previous to thla
the few unions used to fall ln line with
the First of July festivities. Since
those days, however, of early struggles, organized labor has now attained
a power with which It wields an Influence never dreamed of a quarter of a
century ago. The world's thinkers are
now beginning to appreciate the fact
that the demands of the workers and
producers mean more than It would
appear on the surface. Organised labor has accomplished great things In
the past and as time passes when a
new generation will direct affairs for
the advancement of humanity, progress will have wrought greater things,
Tbe demand for work Is not the only
one for the preservation of life and
liberty, but Is an innate human right
of all. The demand to reduce ths
hours of labor Is hot to shirk the
duty to toll. It Is the humane means
by Which the out-of-works may get
employment. The millions of hours
of increased leisure to workers signify
countless thousands of golden opportunities for lightening the burdens of
the masses, to make homes more
cheerful, the hearts ot the people
lighter, their hopes and aspirations
nobler and broader. Labor Day, then,
'Is an occasion on which to celebrate
and realise the great Importance of
the labor question. This year, under
the auspices of the Vancouver Trades
and Labor Council, the unionists and
their friends wtll hold a mass-picnic at
Hastings Park, at which all are cor
dially Invited to participate.
THIS IS NO FABLE.
Once upon a time, during a period
when the human race was not entirely
composed of plnheads, although lt
looked that way at first, there lived
a number of respectable merchants
and traders, who had sons. So proud
were they of these sons that they had
them decorated ln martial habiliments
so that they could parade around and
display their many fine points. This
did not prove very satisfactory, as
most people In those days would rather see a dog fight than a soldier any
day.
So It was decided that these line
youths should be sent abroad, where
they would be appreciated and have
a good time Into the bargain. At the
same time it was given out that they
were to represent the Nation In far
countries. The Nation, having other
things to think about, cared little
about the matter, so the young gentle-
men sailed away on their picnic and
were promptly forgotten by all but
their fond relatives.
Not long afterwards they were again
brought before the minds of the people, when a wall came from across the
sea that the amateur soldiers were In
a distant land without money and without price. Their substance was gone
and they knew not whither to turn.
They could not come back and they
could not go forward—all was darkness. To the ignorant lt appeared that
the proper thing to do was that those
who had sent their children Into such
a mess should get them out—or else
let them work their way home. But
such Ideas only came to the vulgar
and the Ignorant. There was a more
refined way.
It was again pointed out that, although the Nation did not know, anything about it, these boys were the
Nation's representatives and therefore
the Public should pay their way. It
must be known that the Public, In
those days, was a large portion of
the people which would like to mind
Its own business, but was always being called upon to pay tor the scrapes
the other portion was continually getting Into. A public-spirited man was
a man who could annoy the public
most without getting thrown Into the
bay. So it was decided to beg from
the Public enough to brkag back the
wandering representatives, or "cadets," as they were called. As there
were laws against beggary, lt was done
in an Interesting way.
n a certain day, previously de-
upon, a number of females appeared upon the streets holding boxes
carrying a number of small
badges. When an unsuspecting mem-
ot the Public approached, a female
trading upon the laws of chivalry!
would shove a box Into his face ln
li a manner that he would have to
P..a coin into lt or feel mean. Hav-
deposlted a coin, a badge was pln-
upon him and he was said to have
. n "tagged." Thus the laws against
mendicancy were evaded.
In this pleasant way was the little
pleasure jaunt of the cadets paid for
those who were least Interested,
J everything turned   out  happily.
Those were Interesting times.
The C. P. R. believes in the policy
: using crude oil in its own business
and advising others to continue the
use of coal.
The first unionist you hear finding
fault with the union, Just try this on
him: "By the way, were you at tht'
last meeting?"
Cannery operators are anxious to
have the closed season abandoned, and
this In the interests of the dear Work-
ingraen they employ. For all the difference the Industry makes to the resident workmen of British-Columbia
there might as well be no canneries or
fishing. The Japanese, ot course,
might transfer their activities to other
industries not already corralled.
When a duke, lord, baron, knight or
other useless corporation tout buys up
a big tract of land from the government for a song and then .proceeds to
people It with the victims ot the labor
market of the Old Country or Russia,
at a price that will ensure a "steady"
for the rest of their lives, that's called
"business." If the government itself
were to survey, clear and make ready
for homesteads that same piece of
land, and Invite and assist homeseek-
ers to go upon lt, that would be called
"paternalism."
As, a Bcheme tor getting■ guileless
women to collect funds, under false
pretences; and flimflam the public
generally, P. H. Scullin's alleged Industrial Peace Association has gained
considerable distinction ln Canada of
late. Despite the fact that Mr. Scullln
has never consulted Western Canada
officers of the organized labor movement, and has been repeatedly publicly condemned. by the A. F. ot L„
the Brotherhood of Carpenters, of
which he Is an ex-member, and waa
run out of the United States for his
skulduggery, he persists In parading
his bunco game In the public press.
The federal government has decided
to give one little evidence pt humaneness. ,At present when a corporation
Imports slaves from European labor
markets and later Rills them In Its
mine or mill, there is no means of
Identifying the profit-producer. Now
the Department of Labor will keep tab
on "foreigners," so that friends, collecting agencies, detectives, etc., may
be permitted to worry, the life out of
the newcomer. And what a satisfaction lt will be to the poor man when
killed to know that the remnants of
tbe "home" he once bad, but which
the world labor market destroyed, will
be able to flnd but just how their meal
ticket came to get punched out and
what did the punching.
W. Bapty, M.D., acting secretary of
the Provincial Board of Health, has
juat sent out a departmental circular
dealing with the subject of "Protection
Against Typhoid Fever." The chief
aim and object of the document seems
to be how to keep workers tn Bhape to
work. Says the doctor: "A few hours
after the first Injection, a little headache and slight malaise may be experienced, with tenderness about the
point of inoculation. This Is seldom
sufficient to cause a man to stop his
work. . . . After the second and
third injections no reactions Is produced, the person seldom experiencing
any discomfort whatever. . , , It Is
significant that many large employers
of labor have gone Into this subject
deeply, with gratifying results, statistics having shown that of those properly Inoculated practically none have
taken typhoid within a year, and protection is probably afforded for a much
longer period. . . . This method
should appeal especially to friendly societies and labor unions who pay
benefits to their sick members,
Typhoid vaccine may be obtained on
application to the Provincial Board of
Health, or from drug stores." Of
course, the unions are Interested In all
revelations of scientific research and
findings. Now, If the dear, doctor will
Jig up some dope or other that
will make It possible for a slave to
work all the time he will have
achieved the triumph of the age, Just
what the employers* are waiting for.
Meantime the vaccine wtll make lt possible for men to live ln McBride's
"White B. C." and work on the results
of his much-expounded "railway policy" ln the Interior and the north.
Quantities of quick-lime, decent grub
and a fit place to sleep In might accomplish the same results, but that
would cost the railway contractors
money. By ail means use Typhoid
Vaccine!
Wage-Workers' Forum
Granite Cutters.
Wm. Nettleshlp and P. Stuart have
been elected president and vice-president, respectively, 'of Toronto Granite
Cutters' union.
The workers of British Columbia
are still patiently waiting (or the appointment of a provincial commission
to Inquire Into labor conditions
throughout the province, promised to
the executive committee of the B. C.
Federation of Labor last January by
the McBride exeoutlve council. Every
case needing Investigation since that
date has been referred to the commission that is to be, with the result that
absolutely nothing has been done so
far this year to alleviate the evils complained of.
R. W. Northey at Olalla.
R. W. Northey, well known throughout the Kootenays since the days of
the mining boom as a Journalist, writer and sociological student, Is now located at Olalla, B. C. Though somewhat hampered by Ill-health, he still
contributes to tbe labor press and
takes an active Interest ln the activities of the world-wide movement of
labor. Under date of Aug. 21, he
writes: "... I see the process of
enlightenment is proceeding at a good
pace ln the American Federation of
Labor and Its branches, and nowhere
more rapidly than ln Vancouver. This
Is no doubt owing to the Intelligent
manner ln which the panning away of
the age-old dirt and detritus has been
accomplished, leaving only the pure
gold of Truth mostly economic and
wholly scientific, exposed to all who
care enough to look and see for themselves."
"Federation In Politics"
Editor B. C. Federatlonist: I .am
quite flattered at the amount of attention your correspondent, P. Saxby, has
devoted to myself and my article on
"The Federation in Politics."
I am not, however, very much Impressed by the force of his argument;
In fact, It but corroborates my statements, Inasmuch as your correspondent does not apparently understand the
nature of the class struggle, and therefore could not be qualified as being
class conscious. He says "the Federation has declared for a defined Socialism." ,,   ■
The membership of the Federation
is approximately sixteen thousand.
The total vote cast on the question ot
the endorsatlon of the principles of
Socialism was less than two thousand, leaving a balance of fourteen
thousand who did not possess sufficient intelligence ss to their position
ln society to enable them to use their
ballot. All who are not with us are
against us, and those thousands who
did not vote are against us.
There are two working class representatives In the Provincial Legislature, and they were not elected by
members ot the Federation.
There are eight thousand unionists in
Vancouver, the majority of whom are
members of the Federation,
The highest vote case for a working
class representative at the last election was a-'trlfle over twelve hundred.
Where Is their economic Intelligence?
I would ask your correspondent as
to when, where and how has there
been any change in the platform of
the S. P. ot Canada.
He says "the organised workers of
most countries are demanding and getting tangible material benefits."
This from your correspondent, after
criticising my lack of "serious consideration," Is indeed distressing.
Why, even the master class knows
that the condition of the workingclass
Is steadily growing worse.
Tangible material benefits! And
the real wage ot the workers has de-
creased approximately twenty-one per
cent in the last ten years, and is still
decreasing.
"Material benefits," While wage slavery continues!   It Is to laugh.
It Is Impossible for the working class
to achieve any permanent benefit
while the present system endures.
Nothing can be achieved by reforms
under the present system, and any
political party which appeals for the
support of the working class on a platform of reform measures Is an enemy
to that class and an upholder of wage
slavery.
I would be much obliged If the editor
would publish a copy ow the platform
of the S. P. of C, ln order that my
worthy opponent may point out the
untruths contained therein. -
J. KAVANAGH.
August 27,1912.
"B. C. F. of L. In Politics."
.Editor B. C. Federationist: Your
little squib, "As to Politics," is causing
quite a little discussion. It Is amusing
to read Mr. Kavanagh's spiel. After
studying It over carefully, I have come
to the conclusion that Mr. Kavanagh
must be a deist,.with the S. P. ot C.
platform as his god. I would like to
ask Mr. Kavanagh If he believes ln
evolution? Or that' the S. P. of C.
platform Is the be all and end all of
worklng-chUB emancipation? If he believes in evolution, he might explain
to us, whether it be definite or indefinite. Is it ultimate or derivative? Is
it stationary or transitory? No,' Mr.
Kavanagh, the S. P. of C, Its platform
and official organ, are out of touch
with the working mass. How a man
can belong to a labor union and at the
same time agree with the dope published ln the Western Clarion, Is a
puszle to your humble. The Western
Clarion takes upon itself this dual position at times, but I guess lt Is material
Interest that brings that about. In regard to the Federation taking up the
I. L. P. position, Mr. Kavanagh talks
nonsense. Have not the workers of
Great Britain advanced from the I. L.
P. to industrial unionism, to a great
extent? Look at the great railway
strike and coal strike In Great Britain.
Have the workers in British Columbia
gained no experience through these
conflicts that they must take up a position that is years behind the times?
Take this question of industrial unionism, and what stand does the Western
Clarion take on same? Calls lt anarchism. Jim Hawthornthwalte did
the same, ln the writer's presence. It
is certainly time tor the Federation to
go Into politics and, ss P. Saxby terms
it, "None but orthodox politicians and
pseudo-scientific socialists will stand
in the way of the workers," is quite
true, if past experience Is any criterion. Mr. Editor, I hate this "better
than thou" attitude, which some Individuals take up. In regard to working
class Institutions. Anybody who has
been following (he cause of organized
labor knows that It Is always changing
Its methods. It must do so of necessity. Capitalism has Just about reached Its zenith. Labor's turn at admin-
Istratlon Is fast dawning. So let us all
set to with a will, that we may be In
a position to handle the administration
when the time arriveB. I remain,
yours for political and Industrial free,

Nanalmo, Aug. 20.
The News-AdvertlBer, ln Its "Vancouver Twenty Years Ago" column,
says eggs were fifteen cents a dozen.
They are three times that price now.
Wages, however, have advanced to a
general average of only about llfteen
per cent.
The Catholic Church Is coming out
to fight Socialism In the open. This
organization has hundreds of fine orators and writers and millions of dollars
ln cash—everything, ln fact, necessary
to make' lt all-conquering except truth
and common sense. Hell and holy
water avail much where Intelligence
has never been allowed to grow. But
now the church proposes to go forth
where there are brains that reason.
This will be Its Waterloo. The church
must shackle reason or lt must die,
It Is not what you get out of life,
but what you put Into lt, that counts.
D—n the man who says the world owes
him a living, who always Inquires,
when asked to join any movement,
"What do I get out of It?" Such a man
Is of little less value than a cipher
with the rim rubbed out. The blessings you are today enjoying were made
possible by: the blood and sweat of
your forbears, who asked not "What
do we get out of this?" but "How much
oan we do to make the world a better
place ln which to live?"—Bdw, F.

for a day or so, taking his family for a pleasant outing .
It it to meet the workingman's case that ihe B. C. E. R, Co. has
arranged for week-end trips, at reduced rates, over Ihe Fraser
Valley division of its lines during the summer. Special tickets on
sale Saturday and Sunday, good to return Monday.

What the Workers Must Do
======== |     (By donjon Nye, ln The Call) ~~~\ _—;———--
You are a worklngman.
Every morning at 6 o'clock you get
up, eat a slim breakfast of bacon,
bread and black coffee, kiss your overworked wife good-bye, and walk or
ride (If you can afford tbe necessary
car fare) to your work:.
At 6:80 you arrive at tbe shop, crawl
Into your overalls and are ready the
moment the whistle blows to start tbe
day's work.
There you stay and toll and moll
through the long hot day, ten or
twelve hours, Whenever you pass a
window, you look up Into the blue sky
snd a great desire tugs at your heart.
Perhaps you mutter a cuss word ss
you.walk away and realise tbat tbe
longing to be out ln the air and sunshine cannot be gratified.
To be free Just for one day. To
take your wife and the kiddles out Into
the woods and green fields to enjoy
the peace and rest tbat Mother Nature
offers tbe weary. That is your wlsb.
But under the present system even
that simple desire Is denied you.
Then you begin to Question yourself. Tou wonder why you can't be
free to enjoy all the things you see
around you, which are made for the
happiness of mankind and to satisfy
human wants.
You say to yourself: "Here I work
week after week, year after year,
am sober and steady and never miss a
day. I am now 45 years of age, married, and have three children. After
all these years I have no more than
when Mary and I married twenty years
ago.
"The only amusement the kids can
ever have Is a moving picture show
once ln a while. My patient wife Is
the woman of all-work. She is the
cook, the nurse, the laundress, the
maid, working from early sunrise until
late Into the night, never knowing
what rest Is. She has worked harder
than I have to make ends meet, yet
fur some reason we are never able to
get ahead.
"My $2.60 a day buys but the bare
necessities, and as for luxuries, we
have none. Whenever one of the
ohlldren Is taken sick we get into debt
and lt If so bard to get ahead when
once you owe money,
"I don't understand lt. I don't understand."
¥      *      *
Brother, we Socialists understand
you and your troubles, and we are going to explain to you wiiy you are a
slave, chained to an ever-turning,
grinding, Industrial wheel.
You are working in a steel mill, a
shoe factory, or perhaps a coal mine.
You know there are 600 other boys
working with you, and all In the same
fix you are in. You are all at work
creating something that Is of value to
tbe community.
Is lt not a fact that after these men
make 100 tons of steel worth 13,600,
they hand It over to the master, or the
owner of the mill? He pays them for
their labor about one-fifth of that
amount, or 1700, which he calls
wages.
He keepB $2,800, which, after allowing tor the cost of raw material and
depredation ot machinery, Is profit
You 600 fellows, who made the product, have $7,00 divided among you,
while tbe owner, who did no work but
owns the machinery used ln making
the product, enjoys $2,800.
'Now, the Idea has never occurred to
you that the men who create the steel
should keep lt, and enjoy the $8,500,
or the full value of the product, less
the cost of operation.
And it is only fair that they should
do this. Five hundred man created
the steel. They sweated and burned
to produce lt, why should they not enjoy the value thereof? The owner of
the mill did not turn a hand to help
the men. Yet he takes the lion's
share.
The time has passed when the capitalist class can defend this policy of
robbery by claiming that they furnish
tbe directing ability.
When we create articles for use, Instead of profit, we wtll be able to get
along without this directing genius,
which they now so highly value.
This lauded directing ability Is only
the cunning used to skin the labor employed In creating the article, thus
lessening the cost of production, which
TRADE* AWO LASOB CONORIM
IT WA§ at Tares
t$XoT&
mte where tha flnt
- was formed. From
the project to
mtes Rom labor
enables one capitalist to undersell his
competitors. We do not need these
human wolves any longer, and they
will ere long Join "Colonel Crasy
Horse" and King Manuel ln the "Down
and Out'! Club.
Under the system of Socialism,
whereby the people would own the
machinery of production collectively,
and would share the product, there
would be enough for all. Where, under the present system, you are paid
$2.60 for ten hours' labor, under Socialism you would receive $10 for the
same amount ot labor, or $6 If you
worked but five hours a day. Now,
If you believe that good for you and
your family, you must be a Socialist
and vote for Socialism.
Under the present system of production your boss manufactures goods
in utter disregard ot bow much the
markets can absorb. His competitors
do the same (unless lt is a trust-made
article), and when you can't buy back
wbat you create, the market. Is clogged, mills, mines and shops are shut
down.
When tbat happens we. have a panic.
All the workers are thrown out of employment Although the warehouses
are filled to overflowing, they are unable to buy the products of their own
labor.
The papers call this state of affairs
"overproduction." In other words, the
worker* have no bread because, they
raise too much wheat They go In
rags because the acreage ot cotton was
too great The workers' children go
bare-tooted because too many shoes
only buy back one-fifth of their pro-
duet
Socialism alms to eliminate profit.
The pay of the worker Is to be equal
to the selling .price of his product
When that state of affairs Is brought
about, panic and overproduction will
the product they manufacture they can
receive only one-fifth of the value of
have been manufactured, and the
workers eat In soup houses because
there Is too much beef.
Now, if the'workers had the money
to buy these things, they would not go
hungry or ragged when the storehouses are filled with the food and
clothing they need, but because they
become Impossible. Every worker will
receive the full value of Us labor,
thus creating the purchasing power
with which to buy back the value produced by him.
Another important fact that you
must understand Is tbat -under the
present system your master—the owner of the shop—may say where you
may work, when you may work, how
long you may work, and how much
you may have. He dictates the conditions of your lite as certainly as
ever did a slave master of black men.
Under the present system of wage
slavery the workers are merely the
servants, the puppets of a modern dollar aristocracy, which they keep ln
power by creating wealth and handing
the product over to the owners of the
machinery.
The Socialist party does not seek
to conquer, or oppress, or enslave any
class, not even our present masters.
It does not aim to create a new race
of slaves.
The whole movement Is tor equality
of opportunity and economic Justice.
To give every worker' the full product
of bis labor, no less and no more.
The masters stand for the degradation of the masses. The dwarfed children of the mills, the crippled and
useless worker, the painted prostitute,
the slaving women, the dull-eyed, lowbrowed man with the hoe Is their ideal
of the toilers.
Throughout the long suffering centuries the capitalist class has abused,
enslaved and robbed the working class
ln every conceivable way. For years
the workers have remained blind and
deaf, but now they are becoming
aroused. They are going to throw off
the blind lethargy that has held them
ln Its spell for all these years.
Because capitalism denies to the
workers comfortable homes, decent
working hours, education, culture,
travel and amusement, bo necessary
to fit them to become useful citizens,
It must go.
Socialism will make you free. It
will give you tbe ownership ot your
Job. It will give you a lite worth
living. '

WORKMEN'S COTTAGES.
New South Wales has already spent
3,000,000 pounds sterling In buying
estates for agricultural settlement.
Now the Labor party government has
a scheme under consideration to build
cottages for worke'rs on account of the
high rents charged by landlords. The
bricks will be made at the government
works. Full union rates will be paid to
toe men Who make the bricks and
build the cottages. Tbe cottages will
be erected at six shillings a week less
than Is paid to the jerry-builder today.
Attorney-General Holman, speaking
last month at St. Peter's said: "We
are not going to stand by and see people driven to live In hovels ln one part
of the city when we have large tracts
of crown lands idle and empty elsewhere."
Union Labor Thrives In Otlsvllls,
The present position of organised
labor ln Los Angeles must be as gall
and wormwood to the social scum
whose Ideals are typified by an Otis.
Nineteen months ago lt was heralded
as tbe one city where the trade-union
movement had been stampd out, and
where the employers had It all their
own way as to hours and wages. It
Is now one of the most strongly organized towns ln the States. The Increase In membership of the different
unions In that time has been 160.5
per cent., in spite of the fact that
the biggest strikes ever known In
Southern California, Including the
brewery workers and the metal work
ers, were fought out.
UNEMPLOYED IN AUSTRALIA.
The Melbourne Labor Call (July 11,
1912) Just to hand, prints the following
letter, sent from the Ballarat Trades
and Labor Council to the Melbourne
Unemployed Committee:
"Concerning the state of the labor
market in Ballarat there is no possible
hope for one out of work to find employment The fact Is, Ballarat was
never ln its history in that state when
less employment was offering generally. The bakeryl trade, where employment, under ordinary circumstances Is
constant, since the supply of bread
must be constant, furnishes an Index
of the industrial depression, Only two
men, besides the foreman, of each
bakery here obtain full time. Yet the
number of bakers' operatives in Bal-
larat are fewer now than formerly. In j
of these congnasaiTBad already made
some mark on labor legislation.   In 1872
i act waa paaaed .exempting man who
Suiised from liability to prosecution
er conspiracy laws.   Further amendments were paaaed in 1875.      _-. ,
The next session of the Dominion
Trades and Ubor. Congress waa held
September 8, 1888, at Toronto. .It
waa at thla meeting that formal steps
were taken to formii^
A Permanent Osgsauaeslos
There were 87 organisations, .represented by 110 delegates. Charles March,
of the Toronto Palhten' Union, waa
choaen president, ana. David Hastings,
of Hamilton, aeeretary. This congreas
waa remarkable for th* number and variety of subjects dealt.wlth,     '
In 1887 the congress met at Hamilton—the nwt time outside of the city of
Toronto. Prom that year annual meet-
Inga wen held In all the Important Industrial canton of Eastern Canada, until September 18,1888, when.lt sojourned

Although unions existed!In,the maritime provinces, tbe Northwest andl ■British Columbia, It waa not until 1880 that
delegate! were sent fromi the .-Pacific
Coaat. That year Thoa. Salmon (Nanalmo) and H. Cowan and p. Bartley (Vancouver) were eent to attend the Ottawa
convention. Seven yean later (1887)

represent the atevedcrea at the Hamilton congreaa. At the London congreaa
C. C. Stuart repreaented Wlnnlpegfor

Work Aeootnpllihed.
To those unacquainted with tradei
and labor unlona It might be judged that
auch weighty quaatlom could not adequately'ba discussed and disposed of ln
the short duration of Its sessions. As
a matter of fact these resolutions and
reports are continuously before the at.
tention of the men assembled In their
respective organisations as well as In
many" of their well-conducted craft
journals and newapapen. The large
number. of laws paaaed alnce the con-
preaa came Into being for the redress of

men are now working on tribute, and
many are earning no more than 10,15
or 20 shillings per fortnight. That
they continue to work at such remuneration Is due to the fact that they
can find nothing else In the way of employment. Men are Idle ln all the skill-
ed as well as unskilled trades, notably
butchers, bootmakers, carpenters, mining engine-drivers, bricklayers and
laborers, painters, plumbers, engineers, lronmoulders and bakers, Ballarat, as well as Bendlgo, depended upon
the mining Industry for Its industrial
life. In Victoria today there are not
15,000 men employed In mining, whereas twelve years ago 30,000 were so
employed. This refers to the gold mining Industry, ln the matter of Immigration, Watt, Murray and Company have
acted a criminal part and merit hanging."

about a thousand tons additional.
Practically the whole of this output
Is sold on the Japanese and Chinese
markets. Shipments from the Canadian and American ports to Hongkong,
Shanghai and Japanese ports already
this season have been very large, so
it Is expected that the trade for the
present season will be fully up to the
average. American Ashing Interests
are thoroughly canvassing the Chinese markets with a view of increasing their sales as their Increased output tor which additional facilities are
constantly being established, Is realised."

Of late a great Interest has sprung
up on the question of Immigration to
the Pacific coast when the Panama
Canal Is onened. Dr. J. Nleto Is here
from San Francisco, Csl. He Is president of the B'Nsl B'Rlth of that city,
the great order of the Jews of the
world. He predicts that there will be
an Immediate Influx of from 160,000
to 200,000 Immigrants the first year
the new water highway is In use. He
also suggests that a special bureau of
Information for these arrivals be established. Strangers will then be en-
abled to get reliable data on any section of the country which appears to
be best suited for them to locate ln
and thus they will be protected from
misrepresentations by unscupulous In.
dlvlduals and concerns.

will leave shortly for an extended trip
to his old home In Ireland. He left
there twenty years sgo.
A Toronto, Ont, dispatch says that
the longshoremen's strike Is yet unsettled. The men demand thirty cents
an hour straight, the same for day and
night. The lines sffected are the Merchants, Mutual, Canadian Lake line,
Inland lines and Jacques line. Four
or five policemen patrol the docks.
