ARE YOU: LOOKING FOR MORE BUSINESS?
"How do you flnd buiineas?" li a query oft times propounded, sad
sniwered: "I advertise tor it."
Tbe wisdom of advertising li no longer doubted among iiiccetttul
huilneu men. The question, therefore, resolves itself Into one of how
and where to advertise, The dally preu, It must te admitted, occupies
a Bold sll by Itself, snd le gradually becoming the beet possible medium
through which to purchase publicity.
- But the bona flde Ubor press ti a medium which cannot be Ignored.
Tha labor, preu hss a Held peculiarly lta own. The working man may
look for his "news" In the dally preu, hut the magnet of hli attention
la undoubtedly attracted by a paper that expreuei for him and hli
organisation the things m muoh Ignored hy the, too often, corporation-
dominated dally preu. '
THE B. O. FEDERATIONIST ll owned and controlled by The B. C.
Federstloatst, Limited. This company It owned Jointly hy Vsncouver
Tradee and Labor Coundl, with an affiliated membenhlp of 8,000,- and
the B. C. Federation of Ubor, with a paid-up affiliated membership of
over 11,000 unionists. Every lecretary, every union reading-room, of
which there are msny throughout this province; every officer and In
fact practically every active member of organised labor In Brltlih
Columbia IS a paid-up reader of The B. C. Federatlonist
THE FEDERATIONIST hss grown from s modeet monthly, some
four or Are yean ago, to a weekly publication, with a minimum of eight
pagM, and on soms occasions reaching 11 pages. It ie the only Ubor
paper west ot Winnipeg,' with the exception ot the Fernle Ledger, published by the minera st Fernle. It has' a paid tip circulation of 11,000,
and this Is being constantly increased.
THE FEDERATIONIST contains a page devoted to Victoria. It
haa another page devoted to New Weitmlntter, carrying the endonatlon
ot the Royal City Tradu aad Ubor Council. It Is ths official paper of
the Vancouver Tradu and Labor Council and B, O. Federation of Ubor,
and Its utefulnett la at. all tlmu being Increated by the director!, to
much so thst lt Is now the Intention, on or about January let to Inital
sa up-todato unit of a dally newspaper plant of lta own, to be used In
lta production. The Federatlonist le endorsed by the Tradu and Ubor
Congreu of Canada, and It recognised ss one of the liven snd newlett
Ubor papers published In Canada.
It eaa ufely be Mid that The Faderatlonlit hu tbe larnot circulation of any later paper In Canada, and wUI probably be the flrat
labor paper In Canada to te converted. Into a dally newspaper.
Mr. Lockyer of the Hudton's Bay Co., Vancouver, asked recently
to enlarge his company's specs ln tta columns, and u an explanation
•aid;
"We have secured more direct result! from the Intertlon of an
advertisement recently. Inserted In all the papera of Vancouver,
covering a furniture ule at our itorei, from The Federatlonist than
all the other papera combined."
Thli ipeakt for Ittelf.
During the put three yean organised labor In Vancouver hai completed a quarter-of-a-mllllon-dollar Labor Temple, exclusively owned
and controlled by Its membenhlp. Thli ume body of unionist! have
now decided to eitabllsh a itroag healthy paper ln thli city, and The
Federatlonist hu been chosen aa the medium, to be developed Into a
dally labor preu.
THE FEDBRATIONIST bSsu Itl request for a thare of your advertising appropriations on purely busineu bull. Our people will patronise
those Who patronlte their paper, aad thli Ii the footer which placet THB
FEDERATIONIST In a portion that the dally preu cannot hope te
reach.
The unlonlttt of Vancouver and throughout Brltlih Columbia are
residents, braad-wtnnere and headt of famlllei of this province, and
whatever concessions ther have Seined-for themielvet In the way of
higher wagu and shorter houn of labor, haa Increiied their purchasing
power sad their time ttt whioh to tpend it .
Printer's Ink, the recognized authority on advertising questions, after
a thorough Investigation on tha subject ssyi;
"A Ubor paper IS a far better advertltl ig medium than an
ordinary" news paper In compariion to circulation. A Ubor paper,
for example, having 2,000 subscribers, Is fsr more valuable to the

Mother En Bouts to Nanalmo Jail,
With Children, Frightened
By Scab-Herder
Ths Daily Pantomine Continues
With Unabated Interest to
Strikinjf Kinsrs
iaADYSMITH; Oct. 4.—On Saturday,
September 27th, the wife ot a striker,
who haa little children, wishing to
viitt her huiband In Jail, waa on her
way to a friend'! house with the Intention of leaving the children ln that
frlend'i care whilst Sway. While on
the road the had und, tor the past
twelve yeari the wai accosted by one
of Bowier'i thugs and uked If the
knew Ihe wai trespassing, alao Informing her that the waa liable to
arrest; at the same time ordering her
and the children off the road. She
had.no alternative but to retrace her
Bteps and find her way through the
dense buili, not knowing when ihe
would itrlke the right trail', causing
her to travel a' mile br ao out of her
way, with the children, to get to her
frlend'i home. By thla time the train
tor Nanalmo was about 4ue at the
stopping place. The lady, not wishing to mln it, wai put to the necessity
of becoming an unwilling candidate
for the two-mile championship nee,
Fortunately ehe li endowed with
good constitution, and u the train
waa a few minutes late ihe wai juit
In time. But lt leemed as this must
have been a day of misfortune tor
her, as when the arrived at His Majesty's hotel In Nanalmo she wai subjected to another doie of Bowerlim,
After gaining admlitlon to the "hotel"
she requested to tee her huiband, the
request being granted, and a tew
tweet nothing! being exchanged ahe
offered him a little delicacy, which
aroused the Ire at one of the plug-
uglies in charge of the reception
room. He commanded to know what
she bad offered her huiband, at the
same time Informing her that "iuch
as her" were the mum of keeping
out otheri, and- If It occurred again
toe would be kept Inside too.- After
•hiking hand! with her huiband and
wishing him good-bye, ilio making an
apology for her heinous offence, to
the plug-ugly in charge of her husband, Mri. W.-- returned home,
nothing the worse for the day's outing.
Militiamen Buck Hop. t
On Saturday, September 27th, the
Brat weekly dance of the ieaion took
place ln the Union hall, where no
icabi, dogs, plug-uglies, thugs or Sam
Hughei' conundrums are allowed, *
From reliable sources 'the. reports
of .the entertainments and dances In
the Gem theatre, promoted1 hy the
mllltla, were far from successful, si
the ladlei were very complcuoui by'
their, absence, and ai bread and bread
dancei are not very palatable '.to mllltla devotees, ln all probability the'
proposed concert and dances scheduled by them for the ieaion are apt
to be cancelled for want of feminine
support. Owing to this lamentable
itate ot affaire it li reported that the
mllltla boyi held a council of war to
devlie wayi and meana to overcome
lt The reiult of thli council ot war
waa for the officer ln command to ute,
his Influence to get them admission to
the Union temple, where they can
mingle socially with civilised people.
On Saturday evening while the
dance wai tn progress It Waa. a pitiful
light to see the mllltla Handing acrott
the itreet from the Union temple, with
eyei uplifted to heaven, seeking consolation and. praying for Something to
descend to comfort them la their distress, aa the anguish and remorse of
their preient occupation la bringing
them to a point where tbey are liable
to an attack of nervoUi proitratlon.
But If given a chance to redeem themielvet It It highly probable' that they
would only too gladly ihake the dutt
of Ladytmlth off their feet, and go
back to their uaeful occupation!, vowing that nothing would tempt tbem
to undertake auch low contemptible
work as scab-herding again.
Visit of the "Emperor of China."
On Thurtday, October 2nd, Lady,
smith wai honored with an unofficial
vlilt ot the "Emperor of China" from
Cumberland, B, C, It Is to be hoped
that he waa impressed by the building operation! going on In the city,
it much ai he wai Intereited ln the
movement! of the gallant Fifth. We
also hope he will carry back to Cum-
uerland the good new! that the itrlk-
ing mlneji, deiplte Bowier'i efforts,
are Just aa determined to win out aa
they, were over a year ago, the tight
for recognition. The citizen! -of Ladysmlth were very pleased to aee him
io active. It will be very gratifying
to hla adopted countrymen to know
that tbe reported assassination of his
majesty was exaggerated, aa the only
Inconvenience caused him by the dastardly attack wai that he wai not
able to alt down for a few dayi.
Mlnen' Ciri Und Ai "Bull Pine" at
Extintlon Mlnei.
Owing to a cyclone oh Augutt 13th,
passing over Extension and carrying
with It the bull pen, the Canadian Collieries Company it compelled to utilize
the miners' cars as temponry bulipens
until Bitch timet as Hr. J. H. Cunningham's plans for a new one are completed, It Is understood that the new
bullpens are to be such an Improvement on the old ones that they are
guaranteed to withstand earthquakes,
and lt li rumored that Mr. Cunningham Intend! to protect them fully tn
B. C. by patenting the door fastenings.
Another Clash Betwetn Mllltla and
Civilians.
On Thunday afternoon, October
2nd, the second clash occurred between the mllltla and civilians, but
owing to the wisdom and strategy ot
the officer in command happily bloodshed wae averted. Not being satisfied
with the decision in the former football matoh between the militia and
storekeeper! and clerks a return game
waa arranged to take place on Thurtday, Owing to the civilian! having
the belt of tbe game the officer ln
command got down-hearted, aa the
score wai three goals for the civilians
in as many minutes. To make things
a little better some dlicuiilon aroie
as to which side a foul should be
given. Natunlly the officer In command gave hli decisions in favor of
the mllltla, which caused a little shouting-trom the grandstand protesting
agalmt 111 decision, which culminated
ln the officer ln command ordering
oae ot the ipectators to leave the Held,
which he (the ipectator) itubbornly
reiiited, and alio aiked him who he
was talking to, as he (the ipectator)
did not speak or protest against hli
ruling.'1 The officer in Command lent
hli temper and ordered live of hli
brave mllltla to forcibly eject the ipectator, . By thli timet the other ipectators had. risen to their feet and
walked* out ot the enclosure, followed
by the civilian players, thui leaving
the officer tn command and hla other
ilx militiamen ln poneiilon ot the
Held; Later In the evening the officer
In command had evidently had a good
feed of humble pie tor dinner, aa he
left hla comfortable quarters and came
up town looking for the spectator,
whom he had io grossly Intuited ln
the afternoon and made a very humble
apology for hit misdemeanor to htm,
and hoped that they would have a return game, promising that he would
be more Impartial ln his ruullngi while
the next game wai ln progress.

School Board Turns Down Union
NANAIMO, Oct 7.—The. condition! ln
the prlion at Nanaimo, where the
greater number of the men of Ladyimlth, South Wellington, etc.,, have
been waiting trial for alleged rioting
In the month of Augutt, Is all that
can be deilred In'the form of punlih-
ment.
In .Brltlih Columbia the prlion
relet are that priumen waiting trial
ara allowed to have their food from
the outside, If'they can pay for lt, but,
becauee of'the fear of not being able
to convict thli hie been cut off. Their
friends vltlHng the prion are not
allowed to even bring in fruits.
Tha food supplied In jail Is of the
wont Ia the morning, the mealcon-
tlitt of a imaH cupful of "muih,"
without tujar ot milt, followed by a
piece of dry bread (one-third of a five-
cent loaf) and a mug of coffee without
Sugar.
The dinner li tome so-called aoup,
made ot a piece of fata few gnlm ot
barley or rice and the skin of an onion
and carroti, followed by a bad potato,
or two small ones (the cook hat In-
•tructloni to the euect that even?
potato muit go In whether good or
bad), and a amaU piece of meat, moBtly
auch that It Is taken back.
Supper li the same ae the morning
meal, only tea In place ot coffee. The
aame mug at It uied for the tea and
collee Is used tor loup, and so black
Inside that people would not' allow
ham to drink from it
A bucket li pat ln the cell for other
needi, and if thui und it haa to remain then for twenty-four houn.
The cell! have each-three men in
them and meaeura 10x10 feet The
bedi are on one tide, the aame aa
ihlpi' bunki, being on the top, of each
other, and conBlit of a wire mattress;:
S ft lang and t ft. broad, Thla Is
covered by a piece of carpet, Bach
prltoner hu two blanket!. Thete ara
never waahed. When a prisoner goei
out they are fumigated and the imell
the lint few daya li terrible, The
priionen' underclothing geta black tn
two dayi from them. There are eight
waih baalni Snd SO or 100 priionen
ara allowed thirty minutes to wash
and Ax themselves up.
When 8 o'clock ln the morning
comei one hai either to go to the open
and remain to 12 noon or stay in the
cell; the tame from 1 to 4 ln the afternoon.
If caught speaking from one cell to
the other they are punlahed by being
placed In a black coll without bed or
blanket! for three dayi, on bread and
water.
All thlt treatment, meant to subdue
the men and break their spirit, hai
tailed. On the annivenary of the
atrlke the priionen tang the "Mar-
lellilie," "Red Flag" and other "long!
of the workera." and for auch were
locked tn for two dayt, but It wat
worth lt to- aee the energy they put
Into It It muit have given the government lackeys a terrible ihock.
The one desire of the men on the
luilde Is for the men and women to
stand solid on the outilde and the
flght Is won.
Tke doctor Is paid te visit the prisoners, but doei not do eo, and a

THE BRIDGE.
I stood on the bridge at midnight
As the rain was pouring down,
With my poor old pockets empty
And my thoughts away down town.
I saw my own reflection,   . -
And I thought of a certain time
When I possessed a dollar
And a Job, In a sunny clime.
But now I haven't even a job, _ _
Or a dollar to purchase one;
My stomach ii sad and empty
And my money a long time gone.
How often, Q, how often
Have I hiked the weary track
From a camp out In the Jungles
With a blanket On my back.
I am old and tired and weary,
For I've worked many a-day.
In fact I buUt thla railroad,
And now I walk all the way.
3 have, slept In puddles of water
And dined on mush and tea,
And when I had an old crust of bread
Thought tt was a luxury.
I have paid a dollar for a Job ..
And thought myself well off;
When I wai ihlpped out to a camp
To view my dear, kind boss. .
For my heart was hot and restless
And I craved that honest work,   .
And like a good old worthy plug
My duty Would not ihlrk.
But aa I itand there gating
lb the Watera of the iei,
Like the. blue of a flaming furnace
An Idea Cornea to me;
And I think how many thousands
Of workers like myself -
Are homeleu, Jobless and pennyleit,
With their work piled on a ahelf.
While we who do all the liieful work
Spend the night out. In the cold,
Our dear kind hois, who hai robbed
ui boys,
Is rolling In our gold.
And forever ind forever
Ai long as tbe river flows,
As long as we have wage slavery.
And u long as the capitalist grown—
Untl) you wake up,, my comrades,
And drop your heavy chalm     *
They will rob you now and forever
Ot even your poor tired brains. -

CALGARY, Oct. \—A committee representing Calgary Tradea and labor
Council and consisting ot Preildent
Pryde, Secretary Young and L. T. Bug*-
Hah, waited upon Hon. C. J, Doherty,
Minister of Juitlce., The Interview
took place by appointment made by
wire from Edmonton ln the ofllcei of
Lougheed ft Bennett, on Tuetday afternoon. The committe| urged upon
the mlnltter that the itrlke In the
coil mlnei on Vancouver Island had
developed auch startling feature! that
It would be to the lntereit of every
citizen that a government commission
ihould be appointed to inquire carefully Into what waa transpiring In that
atrlke region, uld commission to have
one commissioner appointed from the
ranks of organlted labor and to be a
man ln whom the organlted workers
of the Dominion could have full confidence.
In pressing their reason! why iuch
a commission waa desirable, the committee cited what they characterized
at a gross miscarriage of juitlce ln
the cases of Pettigrew, Pattlneon and
Naylor. and the conduct of the local
magistrate at Nanaimo. The arreit
and Imprisonment without ball of the
mlnen' legal counsel, wai cited to
prove that the attitude of the provincial authorities of Brltlih Columbia
wai decidedly biased and unfair, and
their activities partook more of the
nature of millcloui prosecution than
an Impartial attempt to preserve order. The Incident wae cited ot the
mllltla having surrounded the mlnen
while they .were conducting a union
meeting for the purpose of ratifying
an agreement with the Jingle Pot mine
management; how a machine gun loaded and ready to open lire, had been
trained on the back door of the hall,
ready to murder them wholesale If
tbey had attempted to break Sway.
And how they were provoked and insulted by the .military officer and then
made to march ln tingle file between
reglmenti of mllltla with loaded rifles
and llxed bayonets, ai If they were a
deiperate lot of criminals, and* afterwards held ln Jill without ball on Mm-
ty charge! of Illegal awembly.
In reply tbe mlnliter said that he
thought the request of the committee
a, very reasonable one, In face of the
grave nature of the allegations made.
He was of the Impression that a commissioner had been appointed by the
Minister of Labor on hit recent visit
to the Coaat, but would take pains to
Inquire further Into that, He advised
the committee to ask the Hon, Mr.
Crothers for tuch a commluion ilto,
and that he would on hit return' to
Ottawa l^hd hla Influence to obtain a
full Inquiry. He alto went to the
trouble of explaining to the committee
the relation! of local court! and judges
tn the Department of Juitlce ot the
Dominion Government. The administration of Justice It wholly in the
hand! of the provincial authorities,
who have the appointing of the magistrates and judges, but In cases of
criminal conviction the Minister ot
Justice, had a right to pardon, and It
the catet of Pettigrew, Pattlnson and
| Naylor wen ai stated (and he had his
secretary take a note ot the names),
he would use hit power to see full Justice done them.
The committee carried away with
them a favorable Impression ot Mr,
Doherty and his sincerity tn the ttate-
ment! made to them. Organized labor
hai nothing to fear from a free and
full expoiltlon of the facts, and such
publicity as Will remit ihould lead to
better safeguarding of the rights of
workingmen When iuch conditions
arlte again. One of the thing! pro-
teited agalnat by tha committee waa
the practice of corporation! In arming
itrlke-breakeri, al thla wai alwayi
Your attention, Hitter Union Han;
don't you know why
Yo do not get the Union Label on
.every article you buy?
Because you do not atk for It, at every
Uhlon ahould do.
So now, Mister Union Man, I will explain to you.
Don't you know the Union Label Is
the symbol ot your trade,
And the article! that have it on, yon
know, are Union made?
It standi tor higher wages, and ihoriar
houn, too.
So now, Brother Unionist,  demand
them, It'i your duty* to.
The Hat you "wear upon your head,
the Shoei upon your feet.
Also the Shirt upon your back, the
Collan and Necktie u neat,
And even the Collar and Cuff Buttoni,
■hould have the Label on;
You'll have to ihow the Union Label
of the Garment Worken strong.
Demand the Buttons, Blue snd Green,
' of the Bartenden' and Walten'
trade.
And eee that the Barben' Label Is ln|
the ahop where you get ihaved;
The Baken' Label ihould be upon the
bread you eat;
See that the Clerks are Union Clerki,
and the place you bay yonr meat
Clgarmaken' and Tobacco Worken
have a Blue Label that it quite
Strong,
On Clgan, Tobacco and Cigarette*—
you ihould puth lt along.
Alio the Printer hai a Union Label
that look! very nice,
Demand it on your printing—there'!
\   ao difference In the'price.
There's the Plumber, Painter, Tinner;
don't forget theie three;
Carpenten, Lathen, Plaeterere' and
Brlcklayen Union card ihould
•ee.
And don't forget the Stesmfltten, Hod
. Carrlen, Building Laboren, too,
For to forget their Union Card, lt cei*
talnly wouldn't do,
See that the Blacksmith and Teamtter
are alto Union men,
Be iure and patronlie theie boyi,
when you have work now and
then.
|And for to be a Union man, Unionism
teachei too,
Alwayi do unto othen aa you with
them do to you.
So now decide hereafter, ate you not
a Union man;
And buy only Union Label goodi, aad
do everything you can,
To advocate the Label at your principle teachei to, ■•
So, Brother Unloniit, here's wishing
succesi to you.

Report! from Auttrls uy tbat when
the government ordered out the reserves, at the time war waa threatened against Serria, the war officials
were unable to find nearly one hundred thousand men whose namei were
on the reserve list. These were all
young men who had left tbe country
without fulfilling the military duty.
Moot of them have emigrated to the
United State! where they will become
the slaves of the Steel Trust for It ll

W. Bellamy, leoretary-treaiurer of the

contest wltb a distinct advantage.
Mr. Webb'i Impreuloni'of the convention! ara ot the highest. The

value to the delegate! and Will be the
subject matter for further consider-
stlon by the various labor bodlei
throughout the Dominion.
At tlmei the dlicuuloni wued
warm and at tlmei florid debate wu
exerclied, but all resolution! ehdoned

the labor movement In general.
Mr. Webb Hated that Mlnliter of
Labor Crothen received a telbler
Labor Crothen received a terrible
routing, and the mere mention of hli
name wai the signal for an uproar.
Mr. Crothen hu undoubtedly "got In
wrong" with organised lsbor.
The delegates were royally enter
talned with banquets, theatre parties,
light-seeing trips on land and water,

Medicine Hat can provide entertainment feature! that will be on a par
with Montreal'a effort!.

"Dnlty ot Labor; tkt hope of tbe wane.''
FRIDAY OCTOBER 10, 1918
BEGINNING OF THE FINALITY.
The Federatlonltt, on behalf of sixteen thousand members of organized
labor in Brltiah Columbia, can assure
the Nanalmo Herald that the "Final
Aot In Labor Drama," ai lt pleases to
term the tria'a of Imprisoned unloh
miners, is anything but final.
The first stage of the "finality" Is
best described by the Herald Itself,
elsewhere In the same Issue, when lt
aaki ln flare-line heads "Will Next
Mayor Be a Soclallit?" ,
"For the first time In many
years In Nanalmo tbe local socialists lut year Introduced, politics
Into the municipal election!," observe! the Herald. "Al everyone
knowi they were badly defeated.
Undaunted by this, however, It Is
freely stated on the itreeti tbat
they will enter a full ticket ln the
Sell In the forthcoming municipal
eleotloni.
"Whither thli Is true of not, certain It Is that those known to be
associated with the socialists, or
whose sympathies ire ln that direction are rapidly getting their
name! on the city voten' Hit at
the City hall.
"Property ownen In the city do
not have to register, but householders have , to register every
year before they can have a vote.
It behooves all those, then, who'
are desirous of voting ln the next
municipal elections, ind who are
not property ownen In the city
to go to the City hall and aee that
thev are registered, The time for
registering olosis at the end ot
the preient month, and thoae not
on the lilt by that time will have
only themielvei to blame If they
have no vote for the next council."
. And the "finality" will aot end there,
either.
At the next provincial general election another portion of the "finality"
will be enacted by a united working
With the call for another fedenl
election the worken of B. C. will he
heard from ae never before..
In fact, when one itopi to consider
thst ths Vsncouvsr Island situation is
even now occupying the attention ot
unionists In Oreat Britain, one ot
whom, J. Kler.Hardle, received the
following cablegram laat week, it li
not unreasonable to tuppoie that the
"flnallty" la still distant The cablegram reads: t .

In. short, Acting-Premier Bowser
bas done for unionists what unionists
had been unable to do for themselves
for some years. He has awakened
the workeri to a realization of wha'l
lengths the government was prepared
to go to protect, defend and prosecute
the Interests of the corporations of
which the present legislature Ii the
reflex.
The price wai an unusually bitter
one', but lt seems to be the only language the workeri understand or Will
heed.
If then, Bowser haa succeeded ln
starting a movement which has' for
Its aim the flnallty of Bowser and
all that he stands for The Federatlonist wlil agree to ai philosophically
accept the present caitlgatlon of
union men as the purgative necessary
to rid the B. C. social system of such,
rubbish.
COMMUNICATIONS.
As a labor newspaper The Federatlonist welcomee communications If
they have the merit of brevity and
deal with subjects of public lntereit
in a tober and Intelligent manner.
The Federatlonltt frequently prints
letten from lti readen. It receive!

A great deal of poetry li being written
for our benefit While much of It

The Liberals are doing the belt
they can under the elrcumitancei,
They are on tho outside looking ln,
and besides they hare the millstone
of Ralph Smith and Fred. C. Wade
to keep them securely left at the post.
Oliver Cromwell once said: "There
la one general grievance, and that la
ihe law," and there are those who
watching the various developments ln
the courts will heartily agree with the
great iJngllihman.—Nome Worker,
Bowser hain't aand enough to tackle
equali; and be'i too cowardly to enforce the provisions of the Coal Mines
Regulation Act—afraid lest Bill and
Dan would step on hli corni.
With a craiy man on the bench af
Seattle, called Humphreyi, and om
own Attorney-General Bowter lt would
be difficult for one to conceal their
contempt for ruling clan "law and
ordir."
' The London Tlmei isyt the obvious
sympathy between Engllth and Irish
working claim "threaten! the liability ot the empire." And the growing International eolldarlty of the
working elan theraateni much more
than the "hemplre," which u probably

Trade Unlonlim, like rverythlng
elie, li lubject to evolution. It muit
keep pace with changing elrcumitancei and with changing tdeati, or It
muit decline In power. To evolve lt
muit be elastic enough to Include all
thadea of opinion and to allow for all
practical propoiale which have, any
real measure of support, and It muit
give'icope for the fullest and frankest
discussion of these.—Portland Labor
Press.
1 Every loyal member of a labor organization ihould try to Induce fellow
workera who ire not now member!
to Join.   The dangen which seem to
j threaten one unton threaten us all,
and are not confined to the organized,
nor to the unorganized. The memben of the union may look to the
union for protection' and feel somewhat lifer than thoee who are not
memben. Still, If those who are not
memben have their wages reduced,
competition may bring wage troubles
upon those who are members. For
this reason It Is to the Interest ot
every member that he shall Induce
the largeit passible number of nonunion workeri to become memben ot
the union.
Heredity In old ilum districts, such
si the Gut End of London, preient!
the terrible ipectacle of a progressive
degeneration In which each newborn
child has less chance to survive than
his father before him.   H. 0. Welts
wai not speaking without reuon when
he expressed the fear, that given a
free continuation of present capitalist
methods, two distinct types of human
beings would In time be evolved.
The next generation will suffer for
the social sins of this one, and so It
will go on until the blot of destructive
poverty is wiped off the earth. The
eugenics ot tomorrow will not con-
flne Itself to the encouragement of Individual decency and the restricting
of marriage among the unlit Its great
task wtll be the Infinitely wider one
of destroying the conditions which
produce defectives.—'Frisco Bulletin.
If your union is not properly conducted lt Is the fault of the membership. Your organisation is whatever
the membership makes It—good or
bad, strong or weak, Insignificant or
powerful. Incompetent officers indicate in Incompetent membership—In,
competent through negligence or lack
of ability, but Incompetent neverthe-
leii, If .your union doesn't amount
to anything, don't blame the labor
movement It Is the fault of your
own membenhlp, and the difficulty
can only be remedied by that membership. Good Samaritans can-lift It
up temporarily, but It, can only stay
up lt lt has a membenhlp willing to
maintain lt In tbe position. Whining
about lack of uilttance from othen
will do no good, so cut out complaint
of thli character and go at it your-
•elf. That li the only way to succeed.
"The closer the laws are adjusted
to the need! of any age the more
likely ire they to be obeyed. To rid
them of all formi which cauie a maladjustment U the only reform worth
while, and tbat Ib to 'reform It altogether,' lien are perpetually placing
obstacle! before the path of progreu
tor themielvei by legislation, Hen
have weaved nets Which securely prevent them making any headway by
meshes of lawi and itatutei which
are wholly uniulted to a later age,
ind It'll the failure of society to ad-
Juit Itself to the need! of the hour
that IS responsible for almost all tbe
disrepute Into which the law as iuch
I ifaet falling. Old laws, .laws un-
sulted to the requirements of tbe present, forms which are a monstrous an-
achronlam, language wholly out ot
date, all these thing! while ln a more
Ignorant age they might-have added to
the glamor1 of the law, In this age
when education Is so practical. When
men's lives are guided by the discipline of the machine whose constant
demand Is 'is it needed?' and which
declares that all that ll useless be
eliminated from the scheme of things,

Bowser Making Rebel*
Editor B. C. Federationlit: I notice
a great outcry has been, raised because the B. C. Electric 'has forced
up the price of their commodity
(transportation). We ire fold they
are breaking the law by overcrowding,,
not having gates on all the can, etc.
lt that ll io, where Is McBride and
his "Indulgent calm"? Where Is Bowser and hli half-clad barbarians?
When are our Conservative friends
and their "lav; and order" reiolutlon!?
The aniwer Is that corporations protect themielvei by getting bold ot the
law-making, (or breaking) power, but
working men have been too wtae
tb do iuch a silly thing. Hence they
get lt lii the neck. The "Province"
iayi Bowier'i special police and tbe
mllltla are ready for any development
that may arise. Tbe working class ot
B. C„ however, wish to notify him and
that bunch that.when the ballots are
counted at the next election an "emergency" will arise that hired thugs will
not be In a poiltlon to deal with. With
next election tbe end will be ot capl-
tallit parties ln B. C.
with their vegetable dyei; One dye
wu made from 'the lichen gathered off
the rocks. The men fought for their
clans, and drove back the lnvaden,
but they, would not leave their own
bills to go to war.
When the government wished to
ralie tbe flnt regiment of those splendid fighters they told them It wu for
home defence, and they would never
be sent out of the country, but they
broke faith with tbem and ordered
them abroad. Those who refused to
go were transported and never saw
their homei again; Tboie who went
with the regiment died fighting foreign
foei, aa they have continued to do
ever ilnce, and always In the front ot
the battle.      ,
But never, to my, knowledge, has the
tartan of a Highland regiment been
used before to terrorize women and
children;
The akirl of the bagpipe Is tbe oldest
and most warlike music In the world,
but never before did it sound such a
gathering.
There Is only one consolation, you
can see at a glance that the dress
does not belong to the men who are
wearing It' Their kilts have no iwlng
and their itepi have no spring, and I
would rather see the dress of my fore-
fathers on a scarecrow in a field than
where It ll now.
Once when some one made a alighting remark about the Highland dress
I said: "In the old days those who
scorned the tartan felt the dirk." Now
my vote will be my dirk, and I will be
remembering all these thing! when I
go to vote In Burnaby. Let other
voten In other elections remember,
too.
If the mllltla are to be used as police
tbey should be called police and
dressed as police, and paid as police,
and then those who Join will understand, and not find themselves In a
false position. J. E. D. F.
Clvie Elections.
Editor B. C. Federatlonist: It Is evident that the working class of Vancouver intend to take a hand In the
civic, election! next January. What
form their action will' take Is however not in evidence and lt really matters little for lt is time that something wu done to clean out the bunch
of Incapable! that year after year hold
forth at tbe city hall.
The capitalists with their usual low
type of cunning have provided property "qualifications" for the various
positions, but the worken will be no
dismayed by them than they are by
the (200.00 flne that they pay for the
privilege of voting their class tickets
ln, general elections. However, we do
not Intend to wait until we are invited Into the City Hall. We Intend
to make an effort to break In tbere
and maybe when we do we will have
something to say about those "qualifications." Talking of "qualifications"
we have at the preient time a Mayor
w&o was elected on a "technicality."
The Idea that the possession of a
chunk of real estate "qualifies" a man
for any position is but a relic of bygone dayi "When a man who could
swipe a piece pf the earth wae called
a Lord and was accused of having
blue, Instead ot good red blood.
Tbe only qualification necessary for
any position In this or aay other city
Is a majority of the votes of Its citizen!. No one Should want more, no
man would be satisfied with leu. You
wlU notice, Mr; Editor, that all the
old political' partial always take credit
to themselves tor "good" tlmei, but 1
do not notice any of them Just now
taking credit for the periodical capitalist slump that we are enjoying,
I heard soma females say a few
nights ago that women had votes already ln civic elections, whloh li not
true, for lt li only property that votes
ln iuch election!. I consider myself
Juit u good a citizen of thli burg ae
tbe, mayor or anyone eiie, yet I am
hot qualified to vote, tbey uy. Rats'
Be tbat as it may, however, we do not
intend to let our busineu frauds have
all the uy thli time. I truit that
the-workers whatever form their action takea thli election will keep to
the front the fact that we are slaves
after political power to free them-
•elves, and to obtain political' power
we muit have organltatlon, for organisation means power, and the fact that
the capitalist clut raliet barrlen
agalmt our obtaining political power
Is a aure reuon why we ihould strive
for lt in city, provinoe and country.
Hoping tbat no time will be lost ln
getting ready to butt Into the City
hall, I remain,

Editor B. 0. Federationlit:: "Alderman M'oMaiter. took the poiltlon that
the mllltla ihould be uied only for
active lervlce in defence.of the
country," io we were told ln The
Federatlonist of Oct. 3. We have
always undentood that the regular
army wu for the defence ot the country In any war, but that tbe mllltla
were for home defence. We have now
received an object leuon and a new
point of view.
That mother bad a problem to wive
whoie ion uked her wbat be Ihould
do If he were called out—he had been
told to hold hlmielf In readlneu. It
he refuted to go he could, no doubt,
be tent to prison. If be went he might
be called upon at any moment to ihoot
down hli fellow workmen, who Were
uklng for the recognition of,their
union.
The battle for tradei unlonlim has
already been fought. Tbe men who
flrat Induced the workera to band together were tranaported, but their
suffering! bore fruit, and tbe tradei
union li how recognized u legal. That
being to, why doei the government
not carry out the law, and force tbe
employen to recognise tbe union Instead of calling out the mllltla to
crush It?
It seems strange that there are men
who belong to unions, and alflo to the
mllltla. The position Is quite untenable. How can a man at the same
time atand behind a gun and In front
ot It? Stand ln the rank! of hla striking union to be ehot down, and In the
rank! of the militia to ihoot.
The call li equally lmepratlve from
his regiment and from.his union, and
the unfortunate young, fellow finds
himself between the devil and the
dee sea. Hli mother hai-no advice
to offer: the only iayi that If he
thooti down a striker, u\ a woman
(the women ere generally In front), he
will not be lit company for.hlmielf

WOMEN AND WADES.
A few montti ago in connection
with the propoted minimum Wage law
the Illlnolt legislature conducted an
Investigation Into the wages of working glrli and women, with special attention to the relation between low
wages: and prostitution. -
Many prominent merchants were
forced, to appear and give evidence,
and in 'doing so revealed \he fact that
hundreds of girls ln department itoree
work for from three to five dollar! a
week, and thousands for leu than
eight dollars per week.
When these employer! of thousands
of glrla and women at a wage of three,
four'and Ave dollars a week were
aiked how little a girl could live on
they reluctantly admitted that the
leatt a girl could rapport herself on
wai 18.00 per Week. No wonder, that
the demand for stria that live at home
li to greet ln department itorei. What
becomes of the girls who do not live
at home wai ihown by further evidence.
Loit Girl* Testify.
Among the witness!! calleo* before
the committee were a number of glrli
taken In a raid on houiei of 111 fame.
They testified that ln almost every
cate glrli are either captured by the
White ilaveri or'forced to yield to lln
hy low wagei. One of then women
broke the hearts of all hearen with
her teitlmony that, being left a widow
with two children to rapport, ehe
struggled In vain to do io properly on
the wagei ihe could obtain, and ai
fait; for their lakes, took "the easiest
way." Now her children are well provided for and know not of their mother's shame. She declares that she It
willing to be lost If thereby her children may be saved from the slum life,
Factory Glrla Tiitlfy.
Many employee! of itoree and fac-
torlei have been called before the committee, The condltlona their testimony reveals are horrible and terrifying. Wages too low to enable them to
live, lives of terror and team becauee I
of frequent scolding!, fines and threats
of discharge made by the foremen
whole "official duty" lt li to make the
girls "ipeed up," filthy toilet rooms,
uncomfortable surroundings, and the
nociHlty ot paying even for drinking
water—little wonder that a considerable proportion of them—aa lome or
them teitlfled—are thus at last made
willing to accept a "friend" who pays
a part of their expenses and makes life
eailer for the time at least.   •    '
During the enquiry Lleut.-Governor
O'Hara aald tbat itarvatlon wages
have been coined Into enormous prof-
Its for millionaires, haB been proven
by this Investigation. Deny It as they
may, theie men can hot convince the
public that they do not know that low
wagei are a prime factor In the ruin
ot young glrli.
"The commluion believes that low
wages are the direct and paramount
cause of girl's entering Immoral resort!."
The question may be asked, but
what has that to do with British Columbia! The same,condition! do not
prevail here. Do they not? A short
Ume ago a labor commission sat ln
Vancouver tor a week or two and evidence was given then, to thli effect,
"The avenge wage of the working
woman In Vancouver waa not more
than aeven dollar! a week," while
some women earned more, some
earned less. Evidence was given that
the girls who received only a few dollars a week lived at home wltb their
parents.
There are ln Vancouver several' Institution! where glrli and women may
live at a cheaper rate than boarding
out If there are no women receiving
leas than a living wage, why this need
for charitable Institutions to assist the
woman to live more cheaply?
If In Chicago the employers of labor
stated that eight dollars a week was
the least a woman could support her-
MEETINO NOTICES.
Public meeting bf the B. C. Woman's
Suffrage League will be held on Wedneaday, October 15th. The speaker
for the evening will be Hr. James
Conley. Hr, Conley li a moit Inter
ostlng speaker on the subject of vote!
for women and very well known and
liked for hit dear reasoning and lucid
explanatloni. A very Interesting evening ll looked for. A hearty Invitation
la extended to all.
The Mount Pleasant branch of tbe
B. C. WoTninii Suffrage League Invite
thoee who live in that dlitrlct to attend their regular weekly meeting! on
Monday evening! at 8 p. m. In the Lee
Hall, Main Street, near Broadway,
where the questions ot votei for
women Is dlscuiied by speakers on
the platform and memben of the audience.- .      .  ,
The B. C, Woman'a Suffrage League
are planning an Informal dance and
card party. It will take place on Wedneaday, October 2»th, 8:80 p. m. to
18,o'clock, In the Labor Temple Hall,
corner of Homer and Dunsmuir Street
Tickets, 25 centi. We hope the men,
Who we know are Intereited In vote!
for women, will help wltb the lucceu
of thli evening by joining ui snd dancing.
Strenuous ai the suffragette of today li In working for the vote, the
pleasure ot dancing Is still much ap-
credited by her,. Come and see.
WHO HAS BEEN HARDEST HITT
Although the change made In the
schedule of the B. C. Blectrlo Hallway
will Soon be ancient history with nothing of any Importance In the matter
donei let the queitlon be naked, "Who
suffers most by the change?" At a
meeting of Ward V Ratepayer! the
Other evening Mr. William Aitl'ey laid
the real lncreaae wai for those worker!, who not the least money, women
clerki and othen who did not need
to get to the offices until 9 o'clock,
swminted to Sixty per cent In place
of 81 ticket! for a dollar they now
<rot only twenty, V.
Thit simply meant that the working
ftlrV pays 60 centi a week carfare
where ahe used to pay only 87W centi.
The next hardeat hit penon li the
mother, who already wrutllng with
the high coit of living, haa had thli
new burden thrust upon her. But ot
course the poor, overworked, patient
mother can stay at home. <
If the women had given away the
franchise to the B, C. E. R. they no
doubt vould bave made a better bargain In respect to their own clan at

CHILD-WIFERY IN  B. C.
Recently, before a body of hli con-
■tituenti in a epeech on the Asiatic
queitlon, Hr, H. H. Stevem, M, P.,
laid in regard to the Hindoo: "There
il a total lack of stamina throughout
the whole race On account of the girl
wife system, the most horrible end de-
Daslng ayetem of any nation." No one
with any decency could well disagree
with the stand taken by Mr. Stevem;
yet the lawi of Brltlih Columbia lay
tbat a girl at the age of 12 may marry
with the content of her father, or
guardian, The content of the mother
Is not necessary, for, according to B.
C, law, the mother does not possess
her own child.
On reading such a law In our statute
books one might think lt did no harm,
for would anyone be. foolish enough
to marry off a daughter at the age ot
12 yean?
However, ln this age of commercialism, when any mean!, either fair or
foul, may be uied to gain an ultimate
end, It la easy to conceive of how
this law may be abused; and right In
tbe city of Vancouver' It haa been
abured.
Thla Is one of the laws that the
women of Brltlih Columbia have been
for ten yean trying to get remedied.
There la not a bit of doubt but that
had they been voten aa well ai "mere
women," tbey would have been able to
obtain thla desired change,

the life of the race, that fatherhood
hits been a recognlted factor In human
life. Yet thete amateur fathera claim

self on, then how much does it take
to support a woman In Vancouver
where the cost of living Is higher than
ln the Eait?
Only latt week a woman who was
earning seven dollars a week was told
by her employer that she must work
for ave dollars a week or leave, and
that trom the same day at 12 o'clock.
There wai no time to consider; If she
worked after 12 o'clock that day her
wages would be Ave dollars a week.
The employer knew the woman had
to live on what she earned, and also
that lt was Impossible for her to live
on Ave dollars a week.
It would be absurd to expect employer! of labor to be philanthropists,
but it should be out of the power of
any employer to act as arbiter.
A minimum wage law would prevent tbls. Women who are voten In
Washington, California and other
places bave established a minimum
wage law.
The women of British Columbia
could do the same, Olve votes to
women and prevent sweated labor ln
this Province. It wllf not then be
necessary to hold an Inquiry Into the
relation between low wagei and
lhame. H. R. O.
Perhapi one ot the moot amatlng
things about the agitation for Worn-
■n'e suffrage is that lt-Should ever|
have been neceiury.
To deny the vote to women violate*
the.fundamental principle! of good
government tor/ hundreds of yean
ago, lt.'wai recognised that what concerns all should.have the consent of
A".    ' "'.     !
The better known axiom, •^Taxation
without representation Is tyranny and
robbery," It merely an application of
thli principle; and Llncojn'i deserip.
tlon of democratic government ae government of the people, hy the people,
for the people Is only an up-todate
expreulon of It
Women ihould have the'vote became taxation, leglilatlon and economics concern them.
The word "vote" mesne "wish."
When>you vote you express a wish

To deny the vote to women IS tantamount to saying that they hsve no
lntereiti worthy bt consideration—an
ili'-advlied way to treat the mothers
of the, race.
The. vote la the avenue by which
expert opinion from all nctioni of
the community travel! .up to Parliament to guide our legislator! In the
pining of laws..
WOmen are experts oa the dome and
on question! concerning children. The
home Is the unit of the state; the
children are the future race, and the
expert knowledge of the woman along
these llnei cannot be disregarded with'
out Ion to the whole community. To
think for the welfare of the children
is to think of the interests ot future
generations.
The welfare of the community ii
bound up with the welfare of women.
To turn a deaf ear to their grlevmcet
li to neglect warning! of danger
ahead,
Women cannot be overworked and
underpaid without being underfed end
affecting the future race.
The vote li automatically and directly a protection against unjust laws
aftd unfair wages. Indirectly lt li s
protection agalnat unequal social condltlona, since the politically negligible
are also the socially negligible.
In British Columbia laws affecting
women are anomaloui. Nature haa or
dalned that woman ihould be pre-eminently a parent to her child; Oat laws
ordain otherwise; according to them
a woman li not the parent of the child
or children ihe may bear tn wedlock
She only becomes a parent when
dligraced, and the father would rather
not be recognlted.
Lawi concerning the guardianship
of children alio ly In the face of
nature.
Our lawi of Intestacy and dower are
fantaitlc. Lawi dealing with the protection of girlhood are an outrage to
our common humanity, when the age
of consent ll twelve.
No leu than 9 per cent of the
tweated work In the world tbat we call
clvillied Is done by women, and Will
be until women themselves can demand effective legislation.
The argument that votes and wage*
have nothing to do with each other
lidead.

either tide and hear how they tell
the working man that they Intend to

It can relieve preuure In the labor

Bowser's Action On Vancouver
Island Has Taught Workers
a Lesson in Canada
Many Militiamen Express Their
Shuns and Will Quit When
Oath of Offlce Expires
That the lesion of the mlnen' itrlke
on Vancouver Island Is not being lost
on organised workers In Canada Is
becoming very evident The Tradei
and Labor Congreu of Canada went
on record list week, with a dtiientlng
minority of three aa being out 'and
out opposed to uhlonliti being Identified with the mllltla.
That the true relation of the mllltla
to tradee unlonlim has not hitherto'
been recognlted by the worker is only
too evident and the use to which the
B. C. government has put thli body
of men li repugnant to all sense of
decency, says tbe Chinook, South Vancouver.
In conversation with Individual
memben of the military, we find that
the great majority of them are. entirely out of Sympathy with the Idea of
doing the dtrty work of the government and it li only their oath and
the penalties attached to the breaking
of the lame which haa compelled
them to undertake the work.
No anti-military crusade could have
accomplished better result! than
Bowier Snd hli government have done
ln cooling down the ardor ot young
men In the military line.
The majority of the men who enllat
In the. mllltla do so with the view of
recreation and social Intercourse and
the dutlea attached to their oath were
never taken-Into serious consideration. ■ Howevef they have got -their
eyee opened now and it Is easy to
aee that the future militiaman will
have to be an enthusiastic soldier to
hli finger tips before he Join! a body
which haa been put to iuch a use as
on Vancouver Iiland.
.Union Smashing.
At Nanalmo, the strike situation remains unchanged; with a email detachment of Allltary still on hand. The
companies, In many of which this
leaden ot the Coneervatlve party In
Brltlih Columbia are deeply Interested, still stoutly refuse to recognise
the mlnen''union.
■■ In maWKwayi, the local situation
seema to resemble the tleup ot labor
in Inland, commenting upon whloh
"Reynold"! Newepaper" print! the following:
'It cannot be aald that the demand!
of the men who are out on itrlke in
Dublin are unreasonable or exorbitant
They ihould command the aupport of
every Trade Unionist throughout the
country,' for they Involve the very
right to form Tade Unloni. The employen are banded together ln an attempt to imash the Unloni. Like the
Orange fanatlci ot Uliter, they tie a
century behind their time, and they
leem to Imagine that they can put
back the hand! ot the clock by an
ultimatum ordering their men to leave
the Union. Cold reactlonariei an
more dangeroui than hothead! like
Hr. Larkin."—The Chinook.

WHY DO THEV DO ITf
Why do corporations try to keep
employees from organizing?
Because the employer resent! an independent attitude on the part of hla
men. ,
The whole tradition of master and
slave, matter and servant are still
strong.
It ii to the employers' Interest to
perpetuate them.
Organization destroys that.
Again it Is impossible for men to
secure an Increase ln wages, ahorter
houra, or other conditions that vitally
affect the welfare of all, unless they
are "ble to take concerted action.
That is Only possible when1 men are
organized.
The employer takes a stand agatnit
organization for the aame reaion that
the despots of the middle agei opposed any limitation ot their power!
or any real representation of the people ln parliament, says the Michigan
Copper Miners' Bulletin,
The love of arbitrary power Is probably as Itrong an element in their opposition to organisation- as the Increased wages, as greed. '
Men love wealth aa much for the
power which .it glvei as they do for
the thing itself.
Why do corporation! maintain a
lobby, corrupt legislatures, and buy
judges?
Because It pays better to corrupt a
few men than tt doea to give Juitlce
to many, becauee corruption mean!
special favore or what amount! to the
same thing, an exemption tram Juat
burdens.
Why do they employ gunmen?
The chief purpose of gunmen li to
terrorise, to kill, to break the reslit-
ance of men, ao the corporation! have
very frequently found murderers an
efficient aid ln breaking itrikes, and
the public hai never placed the ret
■ponilblllty -upon them for their
crl.mee.
Had the Federation Imported gunmen to kill a couple of mine managers, it is eafe to eay that every official
of the Federation ln thli district
would have been in Jail awaiting a
trial-for murder.
The real partlea to the murder at
Seebervllle are not the miserable
Wafdell thugs and deputies but the
mine managers who were responsible
tor their employment
Why the Mllltla?
Why does the mllltla assault peaceful striken, cut down flags In parades,
arrest men for no offense but being
on itrlke?
Tbe mllltla haa long been the reply
of corporation! to the demand! ot
their workeri.
The militiaman takes an oath of
•bedlence to hli superior officer.
If the officer happens to be a brute
in uniform,. auch as Captain Black-
man, itrlkeri must suffer accordingly,
and men higher up than Captain Black-
man do not recognize their duty to
preserve, the' peace alone, but add to
It that ot'sending the striken back
|to work,
.The soldier ll one of the tool! ot
the' capltaliat to keep working men
ln lubjeutlon.
MUltlameh are uied In itrikes not
to protect life and property, but to
aid the managers ln Industry to operate their plants,
Their chief uie it to protect scats
and to Intimidate workers.
The soldier 11 taught obedience.
That'll the lint virtue of a slave,
and one of the duties of slaves ln
every age li to fasten chains on other
men. ....:-,
Why does the corporation preu He
about the itrlkeri?
The newipapera of today ara usually
owned by men who have large interests In the Industrie! of the country.
They are uied as a meant to lerve
than.to tell the truth about event!,
the Interests of the ownere rather
A Ue can live a long, time If the
public never hear the. truth.
Instead of being the means of educating and enlightening the people,
j the Ordinary newspaper of today It a
moit effective means of mlileadlng
and deceiving them,
Why Builneu Mm Oppoie Striken.
Why do business men oppose the
striken?
Most business men have held the
nickel so close to their eyes that they
can't see the dollar In the dlitance.
They are Impatient for immediate
profit!.
They realize that increased wagei
would help their business, but they
are unwilling to forego Immeldate
profits, possibly mffer a lois for the
greater good ln the future.
Few business men make any itudy
of labor condition!, know little and
cite leu about the rlghtt of forking
men, they are beings of • lower order,
are not supposed to have the same
hopea and aspiration! as the more
favored members of the community.
The "Publlo" a Myth.
' Why don't the community demand
a square deal?
The community Ii not organised so
that It could enforce such'a demand..
The opinion of one mine manager
In a community like thli count! for
more than the welfare of 10,000 work-
era and their families.
Then again, mine managers, like
other autocrats, care nothing for public sentiment
The hlitory of tbe world ihowi thit
as long aa a corporation manager can
keep out of Jail, there are no length!
to which he will not go * to carry
through hla purposes,
Vanderbllt, whan reminded'of the
right! of the public, replied: "The
public be damned." Every mine
manager In this district Is a little
Vanderbllt
Why the Minera Struok.
Why did the mlnen strike? -
Because the managers refused them
a conference for the redress of grievances, because contract miners were
tired of contributing their pay check!
to mining companies, because the pay
of trammers was insufficient to give
them a decent living, became other
mining districts were enjoying the
eight hour day, and because tbe mine
workera wanted to live longer. Instead
of leaving their wife a widow tb- take
ln washing.
That, ln brief, li why the mlnen
struck, .      ,
. "No Help Winttd" Signs.
Men flocking to tbe city for winter
employment have caused the, "no help
wanted" sign to be hung out by the
many building and other contracton
In Vancouver. Dpieni oi men are reported to be applying to oontracton
on nearly all the building Jobi under
way In the city every day, but In molt
instances the contracton ara already
operating with well ailed crews.

Already Preparing For It
The convention at the. Letter Carrion of Canada, heid at Winnipeg on
the" 29th and 30th of • August,■•—0
pasted Into history, hut will long be
remembered by thote who hid the
honbr to repreient their fellow carriers throughout the Dominion, as
marking another itep onward and upward ln the march ot human propel!
by thoie who deliver the publlo malls.
Forty-nine delegate! and three offl-
com were present, representing the
whole country from the Atlantic to
the Paoiflc.
The executive were abi'e to report
marked progreu during their term ot
onlce, the following important reforms
having been obtained: ''
The full provisional allowance obtained for Grade ES men WeitjOf the
OrGI t  I tflKflti  '
Arrears of pay to eome 67 men who
took up the grade Mitem ln 1909, tome
J400 each. - .
A flat Increase of 26c per day trom
April let, 1913.
A reduction of time to reach the
maximum from six and a quarter to
four yeara.
An Increase of holidays from two to
- three weeks, thui putting the, Carriers
on an equality with the rest of the
service (offset somewhat, however, by
the-abolltion of the bonui system).
An Issue of boote. locally, tttaw hats
■nd light coat during summer, the
quality of which, however, could be
Improved upon.
' The following resolutions received
the endorsatlon of the convention, and
the new executive were Instructed to
employ the necessary meana whereby
the aame can Jie effected: .
That 22 daya' leave, excluilVe of
Sunday! or holiday!, with pay, be

Extended leave of abaence, (without
pay) to thoie desiring the same.
That the regular pay be given Carriers when sick and not months after,
as at preient,
for the comparatively mild but rainy
winter! In thlt province.

Among the Important amendment!
to the conititutlon were tbe following:
That none but Letter Carrier! shall
hold office In the federated body or lti
branchei or be eligible ai delegate to
the bi-annual convention.
It wai, however, moved In connection with the above tbat the P. M. Gv

'The entertainment provided by
Branch 7, Winnipeg, .for the delegates
wai nrit-class ln every respect In
addition to a theatre party and a banquet, a three-hour auto drive sight-
seeing around Winnipeg waa a revelation to all,
The Lahor Day parade*, ln which
the delegate! toolti part, and a social
hour at the exponas of the Adanac
Club, muit not be forgotten.
Vancouver li to be the next plaoe

Whatever li coming over the present Liberal Admlnlitratlon? Tbelr
whbie policy during the last eighteen
monthi hai been a grotesque and ridiculous exhibition of. feeroome hesitation intermingled with the tyranny of
timid men, Sir Edward. Canon can
apparently lay what he likes. No matter how legally leditiout hli language
may be, lt wilt not do to make a martyr of him. Il It became, notwithstanding their acofflng at'Uliter, the
Liberal! really do tear serious trouble
lu Miter over Home Rule? Whichever way It may be, there is a good
deal to be said for tbe policy of leaving seditious language alone.. Prosecutions for that kind of offense generally do more harm than. good. But if
that is to be the policy ot the Government It should be applied all round.
If lt li not » applied It meana that
the powerful-will be permitted to aay
and to do tblnga that the weak muit
not lay or do. There you bave the
wont form; of tyranny, that which
proceedi from weakness snd timidity.

Labor Temple, laat Friday evening,
Bra. Charlie Davis, preildent bf the
Waiten' Union, In the chair. All the
offlcera were present wltb the exception of the business agent, who was
reported Indisposed. Early In tbe proceeding! we Initiated leven new member!, two cooks, two waiter! and three
waltreaiei—a nice little addition to
our ranki. In connection with the
dance recently held by the combined
crafti In the Dominion Hall, tbe dance
oommlttee reported that that we were
well on the lafe aide Inihctally, Aa
thii was the most lucceutul function
of lti kind ever pulled off by the cull-
nary crafte, great credit 11 due the
dance committee for Its able handling
of the affair. We are making a determined effort to secure a one hundred per cent, attendance at' our
meeting!, and with thli end In view
Bro, Henny Purniteln, preildent of the
Cooki' Union, brought forward a pro-
poial to lncreaae the monthly dues
from One dollar to two dollars, giving
a rebate of one dollar to every member
who attend! at least one meeting a
month. This proposal was the cause
of a very lively, debate, the outcome
of which was that the proportion wai
referred back to the three looal unions
to be decided at their Individual meetings Uke most other tradei at thli
time, business In our line li very quiet
Juit now, although It li gratifying to
record that very few of our memben
are on the lub Hit, while there seems
to be an unuiually large number of
unemployed cooki, waiter! and walt-
resiei of the "free and independent''
type who are making a beaten track
trom one employment ihirk to tbe
other while trying to look cheerful on
one large bean and a glau of water
per day. We are supplying quite a
number of walten and other help for
banquet*, etc., these dayi, and In thli
connection I would like to point ont to
