Referring to tbe ititcment appearing In lait woek'i issue of The Federatlonist to the effect that Mr. F. R,
Olover, General Executive Assistant
of the B.C. Blectric, bid lilted it bis
meeting wltb the Board of Trade tbat
the recent Increases granted the employees ot the compiny were not In
any way responsible for tbe Increase
of fares, Mr. Olover makes the following explanatory statement:
"Tbe press reports of my remarks
at tbe Board of Trade meeting did not,
of coune, claim to be verbatim, and
the paragraph quoted In The Federatlonist of lut week coven only i part
of my reference to the lubject. My
statement was to the effect thlt during the put ten yura the company
had Increued wages about 60 per cent,
and that the ever-continuing increase
In operating expenaes, due ot the lncreue in cost of every item required
to carry on a street railway business,
tbe rates of fare remaining the ume,
had raised tbe company's ratio of operating expense to such ■ point tbat It
could not continue to tell ridel at the
old rates without grave danger to the
financial stability of tbe concern, a
condition which I do not think the
citizens of Vancouver would Use to
see take place,
"It Is true that I said the recent
wage Increase to our employe.es wu
not responsible for tbe increued
fares, bnt I also uld that thia lncreue wu one of the many items
which combined to ruse operating
costs to a point where expenditures In
this line were entirely out of proportion to the earnings of the railway.
"I must disclaim the statement ihat
at another meeting I admitted that tte
recen Increase granted the company's
employee! amounted to less thin
11000 per month. As a matter of fact,
the correct total ot these Incresaei li
much In excess of this amount.
"Further referring to the. article In
last week's Federationlit, u tt stales
that the lncreaae ot fares hu resulted
In the revenues of the company being
Increued by 163,000 per month, I
merely wlih to uy that thlt figure li
very wide of.the mirk, u our net
operating revenue hu been steadily
declining for many months"

Bowser's Exhibition of Violent Temper Fails to Exterminate Solidarity,
"Salutary Effect" of Persecution Strengthens Determination to Fight to End
NANAIMO, Nov, 3,-Slnging tbe
Marseillaise tbe striking inuiers ot
Uulysuiittt marched trom tbe court-
bouse at Nanalmo, alter, being sentenced by Judge Howay, His "Honor," wbo deals wltb eitects and bas
not tbe moral courage to Investigate
tbe deep-lying causes wblcb brougbt
into being tbe present crisis, took it
upon hiniBel( to lecture tbe imprisoned miners. His bomily was uotblng
short of on Insult to Intelligent work,
ors, on wbom be would try to place
tbe blame for all tbe strife and
trouble whloh haa been brougbt about
lu this strike through tbe agency of
Bowser and bis tools, Wbat concerned him molt was that jle hail
looked over tbe faces of the accused
and oould not discern any sign of
what he termed "repentance" for
their "lawless act"
It Is a crime for Labor to organiie,
a crime for workers to fight for better conditions, Any action on the
part of workeri whloh tends to lessen
the profit of the masters of HoBrlde
and Bowser is lawless, and all the
forces, ot law and order are brought
to bear, to harass and Irritate to the
point ot exasperation so as to give
excuse for exquisite brutal methods
of coercion.
Farce has given place to tragedy
on Vancouver Island. On the morning of October 23rd only tbe wives,
daughters and sisters of the convicted men were aUowed In the courthouse, and tourteeb special! were
spread among them, Tbe stunt wu
pulled oft ln Such a manner as to
drive home to those most vitally concerned the lesson that the miners
aad their women-folk fully realise
tbat the so-called better class are ss
cruel OS tbey are bigoted and Ignorant
. Next morning the five men who got
two years were brought down to the
Princess Patricia, hustled aboard
and stowed away out of sight Even
a chance to get a last look at their
loved ones, was denied the few
anxious women on the wharf. Taylor end Guthrie's only crime is that
they were officers in the union; the
other three were mere boys.
The men who bad sentences of a
year and less are at present held In
the provincial jail at Nanaimo.
Capitalism may brand these men
as "criminals," .but that to tbem is
preferable to tbe hated name of
"scab,"
Tbe gauntlet has been thrown
down by tbe Industrial despots and
tbelr official puppets. The question
Is—Will organlied labor stand by and
see their fellow-workers railroaded
to tbe penitentiary without a protest?
Now is tbe time for tbe workeri
to get together, for a blow is being
aimed at organised labor ln British
Columbia, and the powers tbat be
are preparing their hired forces to
orush us physically, drag our morality in the dirt and damn tbe intellectual aspirations of our class,
Tne spirit of solidarity Is not exterminated. To. break the fighting spirit
of the striking miners Is not within
tbe power of suoh political reptiles
as McBride, BowBer, Howay, Shoebotham.
The only "aalutory effect upon the
striking spirit of tbe district" is the
determination to flght to the bitter
end.'     -
The great Are ln London some two
hundred years ago cleared out every
vestige of the terrible plague wblch
had previously devastated the population. So today let every earnest
thinking working man help spread a
conflagration of class conscious opinion aflame In tbe West by giving tbe
widest publicity to the dastardly conduct ot the coal barons and tbelr colleague! towards organised labor on
Vancouver Island.
The events of today call for action.
"An Injury to one is the concern of
all" must be engraved on our memory and analysed with our Intelligence to enable us to organise our
power to sweep out of existence
every vestige of the loathsome plague
of Industrial despots, bum politicians,
clerical liars, press prostitutes, scabs
and scab-herders, who tor years have
festered like huge ulcerous lores on
the community, sapping Its vitality
and making almost a hopeless contest the struggle for bread and tbe
light for human progress.

Miry, the Revolutionist
Probably Carlyle In his : "Hero-
Worsbop," has done more than any
other man ln leading us to look
backwards and examine dispassionately the lives of thoie Illustrious
characters we have immortalized and
deified. Through tbe Influence of
Carlyle we are now applying reason
in our analysis ot great historical
personages instead of ascribing qualities which they could not possibly
possess.
lt speaks volumes for the advance
of modern thought when lt Is possible
for ui to open our heart! and minds
without fear of suffering as heretloi
for our attitude toward! thoie two
wonderful characters — Mary and
Jesus.
When, their purely human qualities
are rightly understood their lives
will prove of Inestimable value to the
race. We shall regard tbem both
with a greater reverence, and the
time we bave been wasting in useless
worship will be spent In honest effort to emulate their example for the
betterment of the proletariat to which
they belonged.
Mary was the greatest revolutionist
the world has ever seen. She wrote-
tne greatest revolutionary hymn the
world has ever sung. She exerciied a
greater pre-natal influence than any
mother the world hae ever known.
She has made the great heart of
humanity throb wltb an emotion that
will never be stilled until every little
child has come Into his birthright
Let us- apply-reason Instead of
.superstition to her. She lived In Galilee, which was blessed with a greater
degree of freedom than any other
section of the Human Umpire.
Uaiilee was located in the very
centre of two great civilisations. The
Koinan conquerors on one hand and
tbe iuastein merchants on the other,
tt was the market place in the world
at tnat time, ana thus the fact is ao-
ouuuted for that tbe tauiily to which
rfhe beiuuged were nut in abject
slavsry.
let tbe glory of other days bad
departed iiulu her people. Her
iumily gathered together irequently

iiu'uwu. Theae discusmous were car-
Wed on according to the crude ideas
vievalent with regard to a personal
u,ou wbo jealously watched over

needed a leader to re-establish their

alien talked with her about tbe advent of such a leader, and in the enthusiasm of tueir, youth, each longed
to preeent sites' a oho to the people.
When Ulizubetb eventually whispered her condition to uiary, the
•after was filled i with a righteous
envy, She waa bethrothed to a man
much older than herieif who was; too
poor to carry out the required Jewish
ritual and was '-'biding his time."
desire Is stronger than law of
man's making.; mary knew the grand
secret We ore aU the ohlldren,of a
moment's pleasure. She toojp'ad-
vantage ot Nature! greater law and
"found herself with child." Probably
inane law wai afterward! conformed
with, nut, tbat doei not make any dif-
ierenoe to tbe result of her act-
She did two thousand years ago
what motherhood hai aot yet attempted.. She desired a child and. chose
tbe man wbo should be the father of
tbe child. A notorious Individual recently declared that Jesus wai a
bastard. If he waa, I would rather
be the father of one iuch than be the
father of a thousand legitimate children ot the calibre of the one who
sneers at Jesus.  •
Having gained her desire Mary began to exercise that subtle privilege
which only the mother may. The
world'! great men were made great
ln the mother'! womb. Rafael became the living Interpretation of hli
mother's artistic ,' temperament
Dante's power of portrayal was the
result of his mother'! deilre. Bus-
unnuh Wesley founded Methodiim
while John and Charlie lay under
neath her heart
In like manner Mary exerolsed iuch
ah Influence that for - two thouund
yeara her son has been mlitaken for
a god,
That, however, wai not her desire.
If her deilre had reached fruition we
should have advanced a thousand
years beyond our boasted Christian
civilization.
Let us sing with her the greatest
revolutionary hymn ever penned:
My soul doth magnify the Lord,
And my spirit hath rejoiced In Ood
my Saviour,
For He hath regarded the low estate
of His handmaiden;   -
For, behold, from henceforth genera-
.. tlons shall call me blessed.
For He that Is mighty hath done to
me great things, and holy II Hli
name.
And His mercy Is on them that fear
Him from generation.
He hath shewn strength with   His
arm; ' «
He hath scattered the proud In the
Imagination of their hearts.
He hatb put down the mighty from
their seats, and exalted them of
low degree.
He hath filled . lis hungry with good
things; and the  rloh  He  hath
sent empty away.'.'
He hatb helped His servant Israel In
remembranoe of His mercy.
As He spake, to our fathers, to Abraham, and to hie* seed for ever.
When Mary ling.,her Magnificat

Query, "Shall Organised La
bor Go Into Municipal
Politics?"
Unionists of Western Cities
Will Break the Ice During Next Three Months
"Shall the membenhlp of organlied
labor, through their reipectlve central bodies, enter municipal polities'."
xhls is a question tnat seems to be
agitating tne minds ot trades union-.
Uti thli year,tnrougnout ue whole of
Western Canada.
At 'New Weitmlnster the Royal
City Tradei and Labor Council recently took the Initiative in calling a
convention which nominated tour al:
dermanlc candidates.
At victoria, tbe Capital City Central Labor Body Is at present discussing the advisability of entering the
next municipal campaign.
ln Vanoouver a committee, outside
the central labor bady, hai taken It
upon themielvei to organise what
they term a Labor Representation
committee, having in view the election of Labor representative!, aad to
thla end a call haa been Issued, as
previously announced In The Federationist asking each ot the local
unions to send two representatives to
attend the convention, fixed tor next
Tuesday evening, Nov, 11, when it Is
thought that some understanding will
be arrived at by whloh lt wtll be possible to permit the membership of
organlied labor taking part ln municipal politics.
At Edmonton last week the Tradei
and Labor Counoll displayed a keen
lntereat in the queitlon of entering
municipal politic!. Some week! agq
a committee on elections waa appoint,
ed and for thla committee Seoretary
Farmllo reported that from all the
unions approached an aniwer ln the
affirmative had been received, though
some had refused to pledge themselves financially because ot obstacles preiented* In the make-up of
their local by-lawi. But In every cue
the Council waa assured that the Individual memben would not be backward with either their cash or support If it were arranged to enter
union men In thie field. The oommlttee approached Mr. J. A. Kinney, an
old-tune officer of the United Brotherhood ot carpenten, one of the
tew union men tn Edmonton who
could qualify In both the matter ot
ability and property qualifications for
the position ot mayor, and bis consent has been assured if the .committee oan guarantee their nominee
the united support ot all the unions.
At Winnipeg, Brandon, Saskatoon,
Medloine Hat and In other prairie
towns union men are discussing the
advantage! of participating ln municipal politics.
At Nanalmp a complete socialist
civic ticket Is on the boirds, with
splendid chances for a clean sweep.
There li surely tome reison for
thli spontaneous action on the part
of organised labor throughout. the
west, and the experience with civic
authorities during atrlkei, etc., haa
probably had some bearing on the
conclusions now being arrived at by
members ot organised labor.
Whatever may be the reason the
fact remalna that the union men of
British Columbia are endeavoring to
emulate the example and secure seme
of the benefit! already derived ■ by
their brother unionists In San Fran-
Cisco, Los Angeles, Milwaukee and
many other United States cities.
What the movement will ultimately
lead to Is at present a nutter of speculation, but tbat any effort on the
part of the working class to act Independently bf the old order of
things Is a move tn the right direction none can deny.
The result of the convention next]
Tuesday evening ln Vancouver will
be watched with keen Interest ind
certainly municipal election return!
during the next three monthi will
have more significance, from a working class standpoint then fiver before.
Her, Jesus evidently travelled In
India. Though a working carpenter
fie mastered three languages. He
led a revolt that hai troubled the conidence of humanity ever since. The
world has been under the shadow of
Hli droll for two thouund yean. He
■Imply sought to establish a temporal
kingdom In which there should he no
oppression. The Ideal wai Instilled
Into His mind at His mother'! knee.
Mary's real character hat been hidden under a oloak of superstition,
When we restore thit character to
her, Motherhood will oome Into her
own.

PLENTY OF BACKING.
It may appear to some tbat the supreme contempt that Vancouver Island
mine-owners have Ior Dominion government arbitration Is an evidence of
mere childish stubbornness. Such Is,
however, not the case. There are two
very excellent reasons for thli attitude, v
The first la that arbitration means
the bringing to light ot all tho facta
On both eldes of the dispute, and their
presentation to men who might conceivably take a non-partisan view of
the case. There are such men in public Ute, although British Columbia Is
so mournfully devoid of them. One
can readily understand and appreciate
the desire of the mine-owners to avoid
such a consummation, knowing as they
do thatPtheir position will withstand
but Uttle unbiassed Investigation,
The second and equally potent reason Is that the larger part ot the trouble and expense of lighting unionism
has heen assumed by the governmental and judicial powers ol the province, Theie powers, In their frank attempt to aid the mine-owners and defeat the II. M. W. A., have embarked
upon a zealous campaign of persecution and abuse that calls to mind nothing so much as the administration of
the Combination Acta which held sway
ln England ln the early part of the
[nineteenth century.
lt can be easily seen,' then, that the
mlhe-owners are amply justified ln
their arrogant attitude toward attempted mediation. In addition to
tbelr own funds, the treasury of the
province Is apparently at their disposal. Small wonder that they regard
their position as Impregnable!
One force, and one force alone, can
successfully assail that position. That
Is the unshaken solidarity of the mien
and the determination, of all working-
men to stand by their own Interest!
as embodied In the principles of International unionism, Once more, let lt
be said that the fight on Vancouver
Iiland Is the fight of every working-
man in Canada. If we all do our duty,
all the forces that can be gathered together, financial or political, can not
make ui taste of the bitterness of defeat
the guidance of those eltlseni who
have not tbe optic nerve and the
muscles of the countenance under
complete control.
One might rise In the morning in
a pessimistic mood occasioned by the
remnants of a late repast insufficiently acted upon hy the digested
Juices. And If, thereby, he should
glare forth uncompromisingly upon
the community, he could be Immediately apprehended . for looking as
though he would like to tell everybody what he thought of them. Further, being brought before the bar of
justice,-If he should be unable to call
forth a contrite expression, and look
penitent for having gated wildly, the
prison bars would close upon him,
and his liberty be gone.
. British Columbia will Indeed be
Utopia when none but gentle, lamblike countenances meet* the gaze of
the surprised and delighted tourist.

The day hu arrived when men, the

Editor B. C. Federatlonist: Just a
line to let you know that Brotherhood
ot Carpenten' Local 1848 has donated
$100 towards the. Kiddies' Christmas
Sox. A special call meeting for tbe
purpose of an assessment of 60c per
member will be held on November
llth, the money to go for the same
purpoie. The-Brotherhood feel that
this Is one of the things that the entire workers of the province should be
united on. The Amalgamated Society
of Carpenters has *Uonated an equal
sum and an assessment of 6uc per member. Also a request to the Canadian
executive for a grant 'from the contingent fund, to help swell the total.
Therefore you will see that the poor
carpenter, with ail the vicissitudes
tbat beset his path, when tbe call
comes, Irrespective ot the condition
ot the trade; nay, no matter how
gloomy the outlook, the carpenter
feels that the children of the mlnen
should this year enter into the gaiety
of Christmas cheer, While we feel
our. limitation regarding finance, nevertheless wo reallie that If sll tbe
worken who are standing by had
some ot the grit that has been ao
well exemplified by the mlnen the
Bowier admlnlitratlon would not have
been so dogmatic lh dispensing British justice. But we sre waking up.
On behalf ot the Hodcarrlers and
Building laboren, I might also notify
you that they have contributed |12
toward the fund. Therefore, we feel,
If hy thli imall effort tosh vigor and
new hope be returned to the miner,
we can say with the poet:,
"All honor then to that brave heart
Though poor hs a miner be he,
Who itrugglei with the baser sort.
Who conquers and Is free:
He may sot wear a hero's crown,
Or fill a hero's grave.
But Truth will place his name among
The bravest of the brave,"

THE MINERS' STRIKE
The miners' strike on Vsncouver
Island li still an Interesting theme to
the lying capitalist press and also to
the lovers of truth. I would like to
present the facts from a woman's
standpoint. Tbls miserable straggle Is
a result of the exploitation of the workers by a heartfelt
ers by a handful of mean, selfish Individuals who fear neither Ood nor
man, who regard neither law nor conscience. We all agree that abolition of
chattel slavery was a very necessary
reform, but the slave-masters of days
gone by at least endeavored to keep
their slaves alive. The milters of today are not io conscientious. A few
human lives are of no value to them;
tbey want tbe dollars, but the mlnen
say: "Beneath the ground with your
dollin," We work your mines no
longer' without recognition of our
union; we provide your coal and food,
your clothes and automobile!, your
homes and luxuries for you no more
until you give to us safe and better
working conditions. The women as
uiual have to stay at home and mind
their own business, they are suffering
under the ume condition!, but they
hsve ittll their household tasks, which
are augumented by lack of funds. The
women have the' little garments to
mend, the little faces to Wash and the
little hearts to make happy. They
sire still facing life and death, sickness and weariness, bringing Into the
midst cf the turmoil the little strangers and giving them back to God again.
Their husband! and fathers, peaceful,
law-abiding citizens, confined lh the
filthy, unsanitary Jails and the, rogues
and thieves are still at large. These
same Intelligent and peaceful citlsens
are sentenced ln a capitalist court,
some for two months, tor one and even
two years, for peaceful picketing and
walking, along the public highway. The
Wives and mothers are kept standing
outside the jails for hours, with babies
ln their arms, waiting to say a few
words to their loved ones, The men
In jail have brought no disgrace upon
the community, that belongs to the professional murderers. On every hand
we hear simple, kind-hearted mothers
say "I hope my boys will never join
the mllltla." Theie gentle, tolling
mother! would protect their children
if they were only allowed to do so, but
they are suffering under a double exploitation, both directly and indirectly.
They are bound down by the unjust
Snd detestable laws which they never
helped to mske. On tbe surface of this
struggle for homes and liberty appeurs
a firm .Indomitable courage and Impenetrable calm, which. Ib an Infallible
sign ot victory. The miners have one
great consolation whloh their wives
are denied, for the result of the strike
on Vancouver Island will unmistakably
show at the ballot box. What of the
women who suffer St least equally If
not more than their husbands and
fathers? Well, they must stay at
home and provide food for mines and
cannon. Stay at home and let tbe
rotten law courts finish their detestable work; stay at home until existing
conditions .ruthlessly destroy their
children; stay at home until the dishonest, objectionable laws destroy tbat
hode forever. No! they are not going
to do It, They have awakened and the
women of Vancouver Island are going
to do something. The honorable gentlemen of the law courts are mistaken
ln thinking the agitation at an end.
The strike on Vancouver Island and
the disgraceful treatment of the miners and their families bas kindled such
a fire of agitation and revolt In B. C.
that the combined armies of the world
will never be able to crush, nor the
mighty waters of the Pacific able to
quench. The agitation has commenced
In earnest. The-women are going to
help ln changing present conditions,
they have to obey the Indifferent laws
of the province and they are going to
help to mate them. The march of
progress ft ever onward an* the women too, are going to fight for emancipation at the ballot box. The mothers
of the nejv century will be strong and
free, their children glad and happy.
The mothers of Vancouver Island are
already organising towards a purer,
safer, nobler heritage on Qod's beautiful earth. LAURA F. JACOBS.
Nanalmo, Oct loth.
"Modern Society" tells this little
story: Mr. McKenna, meeting pretty
Suffragette, remarked: "I can hardly
believe you're a Suffragette—you're so
pretty—you don't look like one." The
lady replied:. "Looks aren't everything, you know. Tou don't look much
like a Secretary of State."

MEETINGS.
Public meetings sre held weekly under the auspices of the B, C. Woman's
Suffrage League every Wedneaday st
8 p.m. In the Labor Temple corner of
Dunsmuir and Homer streets and
every Monday evening 8 p.m. la Ltt
Hall Main street near Broadway..After
the speeches questions are invited followed by a discussion.
There will be a public meeting In
Ash's Hall Fraser itreet South Vancouver at 8 p.m. on Friday November
14th. Speakers: Mrs. J, Douglaa
Fearn and. Mlsi Outteridge. Come and
help us make It a successful meeting.
We shall be very pleased If any
lady will give ui a parlor meeting. If
you will Invite.your friendi we will
send a speaker. This Is a very valuable means of propaganda and. we
Ihould be glad of your assistance.
The Suffrage dance on October 29th
was a great success ln every wsy and
another will be arranged shortly, very
many thanki to thole ladles who sent..
refreshments, and io added money to
our war chest, and to thoie who io
willingly gave their assistance in every
other way. *
We are very pleased to see tbat at
last some people sre waking up to
Ihe fact that there Is something disgraceful about the conduct of employers of girl -and woman labor,
when It comes to paying such miser
able wagea as told ot by witnesses
before the Labor Commission at Victoria last week. But today our demand as suffragists ts for deeds not
words, and we hope that the result of
the Labor Commissioners wtll not be
only a pious utterance on the part of
the gentlemen sitting on tbat commission, but will take definite form
In the most practical way possible
by making it Impossible for any employer of labor to pay such low wages
by the enactment of a minimum wage
law, We ask for deeds, not words

New Zealand Laws (Continued)
The following law! may reasonably
be supposed to have been faclllated
by the women's vote:
1898. The Divorce,Act makes divorce equal as between men and women. -
1898. The Prevention of the Employment of Boys snd Girls without
Payment Act
1900, Tbe Testators' Family Maintenance Aot gives the' court power to
provide for a widow or widower and
children where the huiband or wife
has made no adequate provision' in
his or her will,
1900. Tbe WorkerB' Compensation
for Acoidents Act.
1900; The Deceased Husband's
Brother Marriage Aot legalises mar
rlage with a deceased husband's brother.
1901. The Opium Prohibition Aot.
1901.   The School Attendance Act
makes lt compulsory to send children
to school between the age! of 7 and
14, and to educate blind and deaf
children.
1903, The First Offender!' Probation Act.
1904, The Divorce and Matrimonial- Causes Act provide! that the
pairty alleged to have committed adultery with the husband may be made a
defendant In the same way as the
husband may have the co-respondent
made a defendant,
1904. The Mid wives Act provides
for the training of mldwlves.
1904, The Destitute Person! Act
enables a magistrate to make an order on an employer to pay part of a
man's wages for his destitute wife or
child.
1904, The Workers' Compensation
for Accidents Act.
.1906. Old Age Pension! Amendment Act Increases the pension to
£26.
1906. The Education Aot Amendment Act provides for equal pay for
equal work ln mixed schools and that
at least one of the first three assistants must be a woman and.three but
of the flrst six.
One of those acts passed In 1900—
the Decessed Husband's Brother Marriage Act—has a very lonely look, and
raises a question In my mind. When
was the Deceased Wife's Staters Marriage Act passed', and why was the Deceased Husband's Brother Act not
passed at the same time Was
it passed before women we're enfranchised, and did those men,
Wbo say women's Interests are
so safe In their hands, never
think that the law that legalized
marriage with a deceased wife's sister
ought also logically to legalize mar
riage with a deceased husband's brother. The relationship Is the same but
the one law concerned men, and ln
England'was passed, and the other
concerned women, and was ignored.
An English legislator wai aaked how
It happened that the act waa passed in
such a lopsided fashion and he said,
"We never thought of itl" That is a
sample of men's logic and men's safeguarding of woman's interests.
Truly the woman's point of view
has been lacking, and no one Is so
fit to present It as tbe women themselves and they will do so in the future.
LESLIE DOUGLAS FEARN.

"BOWSER'S OALLANT SEVENTY
TWA."
Well, did ye see the kilties?  If ye did
'twould nearly kill yez
When they marched to town to kill
both great and sma;
With their bayonet, shot and shell to
blow you all to hell,
A   gallant   squad   was   "Bowser's
Seventy Twa,"   •
They  show'd  some  curious  shapes,
God!  they must  have  sprung
from apes,
And were dressed ln kilts to represent the law,
Ma Conscience, It was grand and we're
proud of old Scotland
As we gazed on "Bowser's Gallant
Seventy Twa." ■
They couldn't stand at ease, what with
fleas and bandaged knees,
Some had to lean upon their guns
or faa,
And many a mother's ion before had
never seen a gun,
But of course 'twas "Bowser's Gallant Seventy Twa."'
It was grand to see them land and
watch their proud heroic stand
In defence of Bowser's Government
and Law,
But In our memories long 'twill linger,
and out children point the finger
At Bowser and his Gallant Seventy

WOMAN'S PUCE TM* HOME.
Ths Social Service Committee of
Victoria, In the coune of their investigations, discovered that there li a
large number ot widows snd deserted
wives out In the labor market, endeavoring to gat s living for themselves and
their children, and aa a result, the
homes anl the children of theie women are not will cared for. The Social
Service Committee are asking tor ai-
•litance to Indues ths government to
Introduce a measure to give widows
snd deserted wives a pension.
Here Is a splendid opportunity for
our intl-auffrige frlendi to live up to
what they preaoh. If a woman'! place
II the home, then they who are so
fond of telling, us this, should get to.
work snd see that provision Is mads
for wldowi and deserted wives thst
they may stay at home and care for
their children,
There Is quite a crop of legislation
proposed for emending the laws concerning women, It Is very amusing tb
iee ths effort! msde to draw a red
herring across the trail oi votes for
women. . i
A very prominent olvlo official at
New Westminster, quite recently suggested that the Women drop Suffrage
for a time and he and several other
prominent officials df both New Westminster snd Vsncouver, would go ss s
deputation to the legislators and uk
them to amend some of ths exlitlng
lawi concerning women,
The aniwer was that the gentlemen
could please themselves about this,
but the women, remembering the
amendment to ths uuardlsnship of
Children's Aot of lsst session, sre no
longer to be turned from their pur
pose of gaining political freedom by
any red herring In the shape of amendment! to exlitlng lawi, ,
Votei for women Is the only demand
at preient and then— '

No power can keep the Suffragette

The Possibilities of thi Women's
Municipal Voti.
The usual and the fairly logical
objection to women having the full
ranchlso seems to binge on the fact
that the majority of women do not
want it, and those few who by property qualification already posseu a
municipal vote only seem to use it
or selfish interests, lt used at all.
Something, should be done on this
line by those women who are for
tunate enough to bave a municipal
vote.
As to the possibilities of extending
the women's Influence, lt Is easily seen
how the administrative powers ot the
city council effect the vital interest of
women and ohlldren, auch as health
Inspection, pure food, education, and
legalized crime and vice. There ara
of course other branches which are
not particularly of women's Interest,
although usually what effects the men
also effects the women and children,
which makes lt absolutely necessary
for both to be Interested,
If the women wtll only organize-
as nothing can be accomplished without organization ond co-operation—on
municipal lines and get to business, lt
would very quickly prove to the men
the earnestness of their endeavors,
and also- help those less fortunate
women who have not vote at all. From
recent events no one would object to
a little of women's refining influence
tn our council chambers, and an act've
women's municipal campaign would
have a highly educational value to
those women who up to now have not
been Interested in this world-wide
woman's movement
To a woman who never had any Interest at all In political matters, It le
only logical to presume she would
understand better something connected with her own surroundings
than of big national- or provincial

Why Are Capitalist Law-breakers
Permitted to Do As They
Damn Well Please?
SOUTH WELLINGTON, Oct 27.—
Allow me to tell the workers ol BrltlBh
Columbia the mean, dirty, despicable
method! used by the "foreign" coal
mining despots of Vancouver Island to
coerce their erstwhile slaves. Of
course this Isn't Intimidation, because
Emperor Bow-Bow-Bowser is owned
by the ssme bunch of capitalist grafters. Workeri are now ln jail for employing far more manly methods. Up
till September nth, 1913, I wai existing ln a so-called houie owned by the
coal company at South Wellington. On
that day I went to Nanalmo to appear
betore Judge Barker to show cause
why I ihould not deliver up possession
of the house that I hsd practically
paid for In rent.
Upon my arrival at the court house
I found moat of the company officials
and a bunch of scabs waiting to give
evidence against some ot our men who
had been in Jail about three weeks.
Shortly after my arrival I was aiked
by one of Bowier'i satellites to step
into the offlce ss he had a warrant for
my arreBt, He said he would bring
lt later, so I presume he had to make
II out, as lt wai fifteen minutes later
when he brought lt. It ts very easy to
see the vlndlctlveness ot certain Individuals ln this incident, as they had
to see me snd hold a council ot war
between themselveB before they could
manufacture a case agalnit me.
The luperlntendent had told people
in Nanalmo that he would not give me
any more work (I wonder It Mr.
Crothers would cail that discrimination), and my partner and I (engineers) could not get a testimonial for
the services we had performed faithfully. I may say that an engineer haa
to produce testimonials to show that
he hai performed certain duties before
he csn obtain a higher grade, certificate, and he bas to have a certificate
to take charge of a plant—unless he
is r. scsb.
Shortly after Bowser's minion read
a lot of dope to me about being a
member of a great crowd, causing a
lot of noise, etc, auch aa to cause
bodily fear ln certain persons, I was
hauled before Magistrate Simpson,
while Judge Barker was giving orders
to turn my wife and children out ot
tbelr home, and I was forcibly prevented from appearing before him. My
family were forced to take the flrat
shelter they could get, which waa a
shack that leaked like a sieve, so that
the children caught cold,' and the
youngest, a baby of four months, died,
Two of the factors contributing to
her death were her being forced <out
of (ry shelter, such as lt was, and the
tact of my being railroaded to jail.
The predominating fact Is this, tha*
the death of my baby lies at the door
of the Pacific Coast Coal Co. and It
cun be proved far more conclusively
than the cases against Joe Tsylor and
Sam Outhrle. But will these capital-
1st tyrants get their Just deserts tor
their Inhuman actions? Not Not
until we, as workers, assert our rights,
capture, the reins of government and
put theie dirty, despicable coward!
where they belong.
I ought to feel extremely grateful
to Judge Howay for allowing me out
on ball to iee my child die, but lc
took him two dayi to consider it, requiring a doctor's certificate and the
word of two special policemen who
were sent to my house to ascertain
tne condition of the baby, I am. now
waiting trial, and if Bowser can get a
Jury of his henchmen, I undoubtedly
will get It In the neck, and the only
regret I have Is that I Jeopardize my
liberty by trying to help a lot of
worthless scabs when they were down,
Why are these capitalist law-breakers at liberty? They have broken the
Coal Mines Regulation Act, the Immigration laws snd every other lsw that
Is In- the way of their profit-making
schemes. In fact there Is a sbpry in
circulation that a prominent mine
official not a hundred miles from
South Wellington hsd to leave a certain mining camp on a handcar and
get across the line. And I understand
tbat he had to surrender himself to
the authorities before he was allowed
to enter the country. The story la
that   he   over-reached   himself   and
%. Miners an Herald's Treachery
Editor B. 0; Federatlonist:- The
better thinking people of Nanalmo
and district have arrived at tbe decision that the plight of the Nanalmo
Herald ln not only ridiculous but pitiable tn the extreme. This unscrupulous foe of,organized labor is now in
the keenest straits as a result of the
meaningless twaddle Issued through
its columns trom day to day. Let
this dishonorable organ carry on its
unholy tirade of abuse. It can have
but one end and that Is the real and
stable life of the union will rise to the
occasion and fight with greater vim
and solidarity, and consequently the
ending must be disastrous to that
sought by the Herald.
With a firmer step, marching to victory, let every union man in Nanalmo
and district brace himself for the
final contest, raising the glorious
banner of trades unionism to the
breeze In sure and certain hope that
the measely squawking ot the Herald
will Inevitably lead to a' position
where It will be held up to the deri-
son of all right thinking and honorable men. This astute organ does not
know all and from the standpoint of
current manners we prefer to believe
It knows precious little; otherwise It
has a poor memory. One thing Is
certain, lt knows Its master and carries Into effect, apparently, the Instructions given. If a paper desires
the respect of an Intelligent community such as Nanalmo, lt will attempt
In Its record of dally occurrences a
fair and. Impartial statement, and
will also exercise care to give as correct a rendering as circumstances
will permit, no matter whose Interest
is approved or disapproved.
From the beginning, almost of this
struggle the Herald haB not dared to
pursue any such line of action, but
has persistently filled Its columns
with articles colored to suit and most
misrepresentatlve of facts. What
cares this Insidious foe so long as lt
can Induce some brother unionist to
discard hts obligations to the rest of
Mb brethren and be a traitor to the
cause by going to work? Apparently
lodged ln the sordid grip of its own
sweet Interest, lt is content with the
thought ot doing all lt can to help
demolish the equally vital Interest of
the miner, and to assist In a continuance of oppression and wrong. Of
course, It 1b painfully evident that to
do otherwise than this may be challenging Its own position,
Tell this concern, whose Interest at
this hour Ib the opposite of the union
man, that all along the union battle
line there are distinct signs of progress: that lt Is not true, as stated by
lt, that the union Is defeated. If this
concern were tn any sense fitted to
consider the union man's Interest at
all. don't you see that Its columns
would not be bo premature ln Its
clamor for the defeat of the demand
of the men. These tactics are but to
mislead you, brothers, and place you
In a position of deliberate servility,
ln which.is involved the most mischievous possibilities of victimisation
and discrimination.
The columns of the Herald Invite
you to throw down your obligation to
your brother unionists snd to go to
work, as Inferred by the statement
that No. 1 mine Ib open for all men
who want to go to work and to continue the struggle Is suicidal folly.
One must be honest, for assuredly no
Intelligent matt would be so Billy as to
consign himself to the noose prepared
for his neck by the Herald. The
sure way to defeat tor the union men
of Nanalmo and district Is to follow
the advice of this organ, and no one
knows this better than the man
perched upon the editor's stool. The
sure way to win Is to turn a deaf ear
to the cant Issued, and stand loyal to
the union and Its leaders.
There has never In the history of
trades unionism In this country been
a time bo favorable as this to secure
Its complete triumph and gain recognition, and never was It so Important
that this should be accomplished as
now. If this opportunity should be
lost, Boon hordes ot men. will be
brought In through the opening of the
Panama Canal, and we are certain
that the difficulties will thereby be
Increased. Let the Herald yelp on,
for lt must prosecute Its mission or
be turned out of Its Job and get on
the list of the unemployed.
In a recent article thla organ said,
referring to the struggle going on:
"Their fight has narrowed down to
the one Issue, the recognition of the
U. M. W. of A." Now, Mr. Herald,
honestly don't you think that iuch a
demand rather simplifies matten, and
as Buch is most intelligent and Just
Again the Herald says It has never
seen a union go on atrlke by the order
of one man, Granted this one precious fact, for this is a general truth,
and is correct as it refers to Ladysmlth, South Wellington, Nanalmo,
Cumberland, yea, and all the world,
for at none of these places were the
men called out in any such way as
Intimated by the Herald,
Once more the Herald sends out Its
sugar-coated poison by stating that to
stand solid Is simply suicidal ln
policy. Granted, but the victim will
not be the union man, but will be instead the cause so laboriously served
by the Herald.
How many of the Herald readers
know the truth, If relying solely upon
suoh a source for Its knowledge, with
the vital Issues hidden, and the
main premises so distorted In iuch a
malicious manner? It would appeal
to any sane mind how difficult lt
must be for such parties to know
anything of the real truth of the palling events. If this is worth the Her
aid's consideration, possibly lt will
be slso wprth while to know that we
realize our cause to be most lust, and
that, Irrespective of abuse, distortion
of fact and mostly all the unscrupulous tactics piled, we are ln to win
and that today our chances for doing
so are brighter than ever before.

There have been negotiations going
on tor some time over an adjustment

now pending. Mr. R. S. Ford will represent the Newspaper Publishers' Association, while Mr. J. J. Lothian will

Under date ot October 14 the committee having the atrlke In charge,
"We are still keeping the 'finks' on
the jump by constant picketing at both
the shops-and boarding houses. Several more have been fined for carrying concealed weapons. One bunch ot
six go across to Oakland every day,
armed with baseball bate. Our case
against the bosses tor criminal conspiracy was, by our request, postponed
sst Saturday for another week. We
are going to change the charge from'
a misdemeanor to a felony complaint
and hope to make lt stick aa. the district attorney's office say we have a
case. The Franklin association consider it serious enough to have a high-
priced lawyer in charge for them, and
f we get it into the auperlor court it's
going1 to be an expensive proposition
tor them. Altogether things don't look

Editor B.C. Federatlonist: In the
Nanalmo Free Press of October 28
there tea statement to the effect thit
the two boys sent to the penitentiary
last week are aged 22 and 21, respectively. Judge Howay Is wrong, as
their mothen can prov;e. Morgan Is
19 and Simpson Is 18. It Is ln this
way he Is defending himself tor tbe
shameful sentence he has passed on
these boys. Also he says the women
are as hardened as the mem1 Again
I say he is wrong, as most ot the
men's wives know they were in

B. C. JUDGE
-godsend to Community Thst Miners' Knowledge of Sooiety Is
Greater Than Howay's
Wonder la How Strikers 80 Little
Resented Bowser's First Don-
signment of "Specials"
Probably never before In the history
of Canada hai been witnessed the
spectacle of a learned judge giving out
interviews to the preu In explanation
—or ll It apology?—for Judgments
handed down from the bench, iuch as
hai been seen ln connection with tbe
recent, trials ot the striking minen ot
Vancouver Iiland.
It remained for Judge Howay  ot
New Weitmlmter, who preiided at
the trial of the alleged rioten, to
create a precedent, The full text of
hli voluminous Judgment was published Immediately, in two Vancouver
dailies, and an alleged Interview appeared In the New Westminster morning paper, ln which the learned Judge
attempted to Justify the severe sentences he had handed out to some of
the convicted miners.
Why all thli publicity? Why thli
haste to rush into print? As Peanut
Post says "There'i a reason."
Many a man has endeavored to still
the volde of conscience snd ease his
troubled mind by the reiteration of
excuses and explanations until he, almost believed them himself.
Such action as this on the part of
learned Judges will go a long way
toward' dissipating the halo with
which we have been wont 40 surround
the Judiciary and ths bigh Ideals we
have always held In connection with
the Judicial system.
"British Justice," we have alwayi
been taught, stands for all that ll
right and true and Judges and Judicial
machinery absolutely non-partlaan,
fair, and above reproach. That a
Judge ihould so far forget himself aa
to, lower the dignity of the bench by
lending himself to the machinations
of the kept press Is deplorable. There
Is no doubt thst the newspapers,
which exist solely at the pleasure of
the ringleader! of the alleged government ln Victoria hailed with Joy thli
opportunity ot diverting the minds of
the dear publlo from the real Issue
and at the ume time arouse a sentiment agalnit the mlnen ln their itruggli for the right to live.
It ta quits late to lay that If the
mlnen ln the itrlke sone were as
Ignorant of their real status ln the
preient economic system ot society as
the learned Judge himself appears to
be there would have been scenes of
violence enscted within the strike
area which would have been really
serious. The bull-baltlng tactics of
the thugi and special police would
have goaded the minen to reprisal!
ot a real lort did the minera not know
that other meana are neceuary to secure for them the, granting ot their
demand!.
Still Not "Penitent"
Editor B. C, Federatlonist: For
nearly thirty years, to my knowledge,
nanalmo has been one ot the most
law-abiding oltlei In the world, with
less crime, according to population
and money paid out, than any other
place, according to statistics. The
jail has been empty tor the past ten
years, until, lately, when lt wai reopened to be half filled with priionen from other prisons, and perhaps
lt would never have been filled It the
government had not sent the icum
of the earth to arrest Innocent" peo-
ple.
Peace had been declared 24 houn
before the mllltla arrived. They
have done nothing yet but protect
strike-breakers and coal company pro-
perty tn such a way aa to bring disgrace tb any flag or nation.   -
It to true the Nanaimo boyi went to
Bxtemlon when word came that the
strike-breakers there had killed ilx
men, but Instead, one cltlten was
wounded, So you see the Nanalmo
boyi were a credit to the province ln
assisting the provincial authorities to
make peace. There are eome men
who would not have been there it
they had not been Induced to go by
the provincial police, and you see
what they sot tor lt If you do your
duty you are wrong, the sams ss the
inspectors of mines—they, cannot do
right, If they do they do wrong. 80
It seems to me to be protection of
property rights and not human life,
The strike-breakers don't believe In
keeping the laws of the land or they
would never attempt to do what they
are doing, and if the buitneu people
of the province would look at tt ln the
right light they would, awake ln
shame, If there Is any shame In
them, but that is not to be expected
when the proflti are Involved.
Yours for the revolution,

GARNISHEE ORDER SET
ASIDE BY JUDGE GRANT
Debt Must be In   Exceu  of 840 to
Gain Relief by this Meana
Judge Grant, in chamber!, Wednesday, granted an application to set
aside a garnishee order tor a debt
of less than $40. There were only
$32 ln dlapute, and the section of the
act reads as follows:
"No debt due or accruing to a mechanic workman, laborer, servant,
clerk or employee, for, or ln respect
of his wages or salary shall be liable
to seizure or attachment under tbe
Act, or any other law or enactment
relating to the attachment or garnishment of debts, whether before
or after Judgment, unless the debt
exceeds the sum of $40, and then only
to the extent of the excess.-"
It was also held that no attachment
could be made on future wages.
LETTERS TO
WfED
Why a Soclaliit?
Editor B, C. Federationlit:—In calling a recent man meeting here to order, the chairman, Mr. Herbert Skinner, said: "I want to take a few minutes before> the speakers of the evening addreu you, to tell you that I
have Joined the Social Democratic Party of Canada, and to explain briefly
why I have dons 10. It may look Uke
conceit, but lt my reasons appeal to
you u being sound lt may poulbly Induce others to follow my example. Now
I wish to say at the outlet that I do
not expect to agree with everything
the Nanalmo Local may say or do, neither do I expect the Local to approve
of all that I may uy or do, but with
their main program—tbe overthrow of
tbe system of robbery snd anarchy on
which socety today la based, and the
socialising of the meana ot production
—with aU of thli I am In entire accord.
"The question Is .not whether socialists are angels or not, but whether
they are good enough for a reasonable
man to work with. In the place of
established evil and vested Injustice,
socialists would plant an order founded
on equity. Put Into scriptural language, they are out to bring In the
Kingdom ot Heaven on earth. This Is
no time to hang back and criticise
those who are out on the firing line,
fighting to save our civilisation from
ruin and chaos, but a time when all
men and women with a spark of religious faith In them should get to the
front and bear their share in the war
for freedom snd right, ,
"I have Joined the Social Democratic
Party because I have come to realise
that we ire facings great world ortili;
thst If anything Is to be done to get
our civilisation out of the terrible men
In which lt now IS, lt muit be done, as
Bernard Shaw says, by people who
have got a religion. Now, what Is the
supreme test of religion? It lurely to
that a man shall live not for hlmielf
alone, but alio for hli fellow men.
Socialists who sre fighting to rescue
millions upon millions of their brethren from the life of degradation forced
upon them by our rotten industrial
system. These men I claim are the
truly religious men of today. On the
other hand, thou who are trying to
thwart the worken In their efforts to
secure the opportunity for the fuller
development of their higher life, these
people, I uy, be they never so respectable and pious, are without religion.
"Tou bave heard of that wonderful
and noble woman, Mill Helen Keller-
blind, deaf and dumb—scholar, poet,
soc,allot. There's an example tor ,ou-
To be converted to socialism through
the sense of touch I And wbat a reproach to those, who, having eyes to
read and ears tp hear, have not had
the patience to learn what socialism
means. Helen Keller declares she loves
the Red Flag anl all that It symbolises.
She has one hanging in her study.
In her latest book, "Out of tbe Dark,"
she prays tbat "some heart may heed
her words, thst they msy believe ln
the coming of that commonwealth ln
which the gyves shall be struck trom
the wrist of labor, and the pulse ot
production shall be strong with Joy."
