DeL Trotter Submits Able Beport
to Vancouver Central
Labor Bod;.
Policies Approved at Montreal and
Splendid Increase in Member-
ship Recorded.   \
Even at this lite date The Federationlit feeli Justified In reproducing
the Tradei aad Lahor Congreu of Canada convention report, made by Del.
Trotter, to Vincouver Tradei and Labor Council lait week.
Said Del. Trotter:
'-When the 29th annual convention
of the Tradei and Labor Congreu of
Canada wae''declared open for buiineu at Montreal on September 22, it
wai felt by many of the delegatee who
have heen ln attendance upon theie
gathering! over a number of yew,
that in Important point In the history
ot the Trades Congreu had been
Congreu Policy Approved.
The remarkable progreu ln organisation annually recorded hai not been
accomplished without lome opposition, and then are in existence some
few people who have expressed the
hope and opinion that a convention in
Montreal would lee. eome revenal of
policy. It II a matter tor congratulation, therefore, thlt the largeit convention of Canadian tradei unionists
ever held should hive demonstrated
their desire for a continuation of thole
pollclei which, over a period of even
the lut eight yean, have seen the direct dues-paying membenhlp grow
from 22,000 to 80,801.
Many attempt! have been made to
create a lufflclent divergence of opinion between the eastern and weitern
sections of the Dominion In trades
union matten, to atem, at least for a-
time, the growing sentiment In favor
of the Dominion Congress; but Montreal hai Indicated that any hopea of
that aort ara not now likely to be re-
allied. The re-election for the second
time of the executive committee chosen at Calgary In 1911, two by acclamation and the third by a declilve vote
of 183 to 88, may be accepted ai some
evidence In thli regard.
Oyer 800 Delegates.
Credentials to the number of 338
wen received and declared to he ln,
order. Will Thome, M.P., represented
the Brltlih Tradei Congreu, and W,
McSorley, of the Lathers' Union, the
A. F. of L, u fraternal delegate!,
Two delegate! came from provincial
federation!; 28 tradu .council! lent
49 delegates; 24 International unlona
availed themselves ot the privilege ot
being directly represented by a Can-
adieu member; while 168 local trade
unloni were responsible for the remaining 282 delegate!.
. Beside the' regular delegates, a number of International offlcen were pros
ent to dlipley their lntereat Among
theie were Meisrs. Klrby and Duffy,
preildent and lecretary of the U. B.
of Cirpenten; Meun. Kugler, of the
Brewery Worken; Wall, of the Photo-
Engraven, and Dixon, of the Paper

Owing to the fact that all the bull-
neu of the convention had to be con-
ducted In both French and English,
theie report! had to be placid In the
hand! of delegatee and taken aa read,'
Thla method li not In the belt inter-
ute ot the Congreu, aa valuable discussion generally arises from these report!, but no other coune was possible unless the time of the convention
were to be extended.
The same difficulty wu in evidence
in dealing with the resolutions, which
thli year, ln number, exceeded ill precedent It has been apparent for two
or three yun that tome chinge In the
method of transacting buiineu wai

militia, and seven with Immigration.
Thui the litter tour lubjecti alone

Theie figures will Indicate how a live
committee could save time to the ad-
vantage of all concerned.
Committee Work.
Tour delegate found hlmielf on two
committee!, the flnt half of the week
u cbilrmin of credential! committee
and tha latter half on Special committee on Immigration, He contented
himself personally with securing the
adoption of two reiolutiom—one affirming the attitude of the Congreu In
relation to the employment of white
girls by Orientals, nnd expressing lit-
lafaotlon thlt Manitoba had followed
the lead of Saskatchewan ln legiilit-
ing on this question; and the other
was a revival of friend Pettipiece'!
production affirming that u "the capl-
talliti of tbe world cauie all war they
ihould do their own fighting," with the
addition of the opinion that "newipaper edlton end writen loitering the
war spirit should be among the flnt
called upon to take the field ln the
event of war," ' _
Oppoaed to Unionists Joining Militia.
The Introduction of the Brandon resolution on the mllltla Indicated how
wideapread a desire there wae on the
part of delegates from every part ot
the Dominion to get a "grand alam" at
militarism and th«j use of the mllltla
In strikes in particular. Two adjournments of thli debate were taken and
the' reiolutlon wai eventually carried
with only three dissentient!, after a
call for the previoui' queitlon had
ihUt out a number of the notable!
from expressing themselves with a
view to formulating a definite volley
on the subject. Our "Jimmy" (Slmp-
•on) wu •■ very wroth at the abrupt
termination to the discussion, and undoubtedly much more remained to be
uid, although there waa never for a
moment any doubt about the adoption
of the reiolutlon. The 'reiolutlon
"Be lt resolved: ,That In view
of recent event! on Vancouver

poied upon tbein by the mine

- The lalatid Mlnen' Caai. .
Very early In the proceeding! Delegate Wllklnun of the Brltlih Columbia federation of Labor, secured a
hearing for the caw of the Vancouver
Island mitten aa a special order of
business. The presentation was all
that could be deilred. Wilkinson did
hlmielf credit and the mlnen as undoubted.Service. The attention ot the
delegatee never wavered, and thoie
who knew the fact! and knew alao
how wideapread hive been the lying
press reports of this trouble, are ready
to admit that, over 890 delegates from
every nook and corner of the Dominion were placed In possession of a true
atory which will live with them. One
Immediate result waa a spontaneous
desire to "do something," which eventually took shape ln a vote by the convention ot 8600 to the- "Kiddies'
Chrlitmu Fund" and the lending ot
a telegram of lymps thy to Oeorge
Pettigrew, who ihould have been
delegate to the-convention, but wu
"detained'' In Nanalmo Jail on one ot
the many charm whloh are doing duty on the Island.
On After Minister of Labor.
Closely .allied with thli subject wu
the reiolutlon preiented by tbe Toronto photo-engraven, .calling for the
resignation of the Mlnliter of Labor,
complaining chiefly, however, of hie
attitude while aoting as Minister of
the Interior, and ln connection with
the Introduction of strike-breakers to
Toronto. Other resolutions also afforded an opportunity tor criticism,
and It wu alleged-that Mr. Crothers
had held up to ridicule the eecretary
of Winnipeg Trade! Counoll (Mr.
Rigg) aa the man who had earned a
number ot miners to be stranded instead of going to work. This having
reference to the Durham mlnen Intended for Vancouver Island who were
informed of condltlona on the Island
by Mr. Rigg while on their way West.
There was no doubt aa to the temper of the convention on this subject;
but the reiolutlon calling for the min-
liter's resignation waa not concurred
in, as it was felt thlt any other per-
ion in the same office- would possibly
be controlled and directed ln much the
•ame manner-and the remedy did not

"The vital point of thlo lubject is:
If Vincouver business men hive ill

more workmen would be needed by
local printing' plants tb turn out the
work. ■' -

FRIDAY........... ..OCTOBER 84, 1813
It has been' more than hinted a
number of times ln several Quarter!
that the, dice were loaded on Vancouver Island for the striken, but
that the attorney-general would bra-
senljr confess to the charge waa rather more than one generally looks for
from even a near statesman. It will
be remembered that the arreit of some
two hundred striker! took place nearly two monthi ago, and that lince that
date they have heen treated aa desperate criminals and denied the rlghta
whloh wet* io pateht that lt shocked
the federal mlnliter of juitlce, Mr.
Doherty, who recently vlilted the Pa.
cldc Coiil, when the fact! were made
known to him by a delegation from
Vanoouver' Tradee'and Labor Counoll
About the middle of September, at
the Instance of the executive committee ot the B. C. Federation of Labor,
several "petition!" were forwarded to
Attorney-General Bowser, , covering
the Iilind traveity on "Brltlih Justice," asking (or the releaie ,on bill
of the lmprlioned itriken.
Evidently the first one of these to
be received "by Mr. Bowier wai from
Victoria Tradei and Labor Counoll,
sfor since that date each union lecretary Is merely forwarded a copy ot
the letter sent to Victoria unionists.
The reply of the government official
charged with* tho responsibility of enforcing the lawi ot B. C. ind administering "Juitlce" could not have been
more pungently penned had It-been
the work of the coal baroni them-
aelvei. It Is addresed to the secretary
of Vtctorla Tradei and Labor Council under date of Sept. 88th, and readi:
"I beg to acknowledge receipt
your Council ta connection with the
of petition algsed by the officers
of your Council ln'connection with
the proeecutlom now being undertaken by the Department agalnat
IN THE STRIKE AREA on Vancouver Island.
"I regret that 1 cannot iee my
way clear to meet with the suggestion that the prisoner! he released. They will be prosecuted
in the ordinary way by the Department, and lt will be tor the
Court to decide whether the prosecutions were properly brought or
not The first duty of thli Department ii to in thai-law and order <
ii upheld In the country, and
while it may be unfortunate that
the controversy taking place between the mlnen and mlne-owneri
on Vancouver Iiland ciuied iuch
over acta of vollence TO BE COMMITTED BT THB MINERS., Mill
at the ume time then le nothing
left for this Department bu to
lee thit the criminal lawi are en-.
that the Courts of the ■ country
will see thit the accused are
given every opportunity to make-
forced, and you oaa net mured
a proper defence to -the charges
that havo been made." -'
There It la:    "   ...  .   mlnen
wham we believe committed offence!
in  the  etrlke  ana."    And . again:
.  to be committed by the
minen."  Remember thli wai written
un Sept 88th, over a month ago, and
long before the trill! of the itriken
were even commenced. Attorney-general, proiecutor, defender of the coal
baroni and scats, procurer of Scab-
holding special!; tbe witness, Judge,
Jury and Jailer all In one. Ia lt any
wonder then that with auch an arrogant tyrant ln auch a position thlt the
wofken of B. C. have lost confidence
ln "Brltlih Juitlce" and their reipect
for the. law. On the contrary, the
wander la how the official! of the
union have been able to control the
membenhlp ai they have under iuch
trying olrcumitancei.
If iuch sn admlulon u la made by
the attorney-general above will not
convince all right-thinking . persons
that there Is and alwayi has been
from the start a determination on
the part of the government to break
the etrlke. and drlvo the union men
to violence, as an excuse for Jailing
and hounding them oft the map, then
what will?
Thia, coupled with the fact that the
aociallit member for Nanalmo riding
bah been Jailed among the number,
to be convicted and disqualified as a
member of the provincial legislature,
along- with any other political possibilities there seemed to be In sight,
makes the damnable plot all the more
doipicably apparent
The time for mincing word! with
Attorney-Oenenl Bowier hai pasted.
He ll determined- to serve the inter-
eiti of Sin Bill and Dan, who have
the McBride government bought and
paid for, and there U nothing he will
•top at, to accompllah the destruction
of the minen' union on Vancouver
bland.. ;"
There never wu any trouble at
Cumberland until Bowier'i specials,
mounted ind otherwise, . were sent
there to create It ud Intimidate the
Oriental! Into going back to work un'
der pain of being deported, and to
browbeat the white itriken Into sub-

Thue things, along with the whole-

The preient retention wir upon organlied labor ill over the province

Thon who had the privilege of intoning to the lecture delivered ta thl!
olty a week ago-tonlght by Tom Mann
will no.t readily forget either the man
or his menage.   -
The sources from which the sub-
stance, of the lecture wu drawn, the
method and manner ot argument by
which lt was presented, -and the.
abounding enthualum of the speaker
hlmielf, all. contributed to the production ol on! of the moit scholarly ad-
dreaaet which haa ever boen heard
here.       -       •
Having voiced thank! and appreciation of the Intellectual treat provided,
and not forgetting that Tom Mann haa
devoted hli Ute o itrenuoui effort and
Sacrifice for the working class, and
that during that time he hu acquired
a vut amount of valuable experience,
we are not able to agree with hli
opinion u to the way ln which the
age-long problem ot working clus
emancipation Is to be solved,
He contend! that experience hu
proved, beyond the possibility of a
doubt that political representation of
the Working dui, by memben of the
working clan, In parliaments and legislature! li a (allure, and thit In oon-
eequence, all. the time, energy, argument and money which hu been ipent
in that direction hu been waited.
Tom Mann Is too Intelligent aot' to
peallie thit inch sweeping criticism
places him, u the critic under the ne-
canity of supplying i substitute for
tfeat whioh he, would abollih.
HIS remedy li the complete Induitrlal organisation of the worken for
the ultimate abolition of capitalism,
sad In the meantime tor the extension
and protection of their economic or
material right! and interests. All the
worken ln the building Industry ere
to be members of one large building
tradee union or syndicate. All worsen Is every branch ot industry are to
be organlted in like manner according to the lnduitry In which they ply
their craft or trade.
-Then, by Gradually using that economic power more and more, to force
the employen to give higher wagei
and Improved .condition! ot labor, the
employen will finally be brought to
tbe condition where the profits accruing to them from their ownership ot
capital and exploitation of labor power
will be io fir reduced that they will
no longer deilre, or be able, to remain
in buiineu.
The economic power of the worken
having annihilated proflti, .the possession of capital ln tho ihipe ot machinery, lourcu of nw supply, etc., will
no longer be an advantage; and the
correct relations between capital ind
labor being thui eStabllihed, the taking over by the! varloua Induitrlal
unloni of the machinery of production
and distribution which ll required In
■ny particular Industry will only be
a formal matter.
After that, the, worken In each lnduitry are to operate that lnduitry
eolely In the interaiti of themielvei.
The mitter of the worken In one
lnduitry exchanging tbelr products
for the products of the worken In
•ome other lnduitry, li to he adjusted
by what friend Mann calls "an equitable and commonsenie bull' of exchange."
The theory would be very line If
men were mathematlca Initead of human. But the aoltd faot which confront! ui li that man li man, with all
his goodness and all hli hadneu, all
hla itrength and weakneuei, and the
path of hlitory li one long record of
the deilre of the itrong to dominate
the wuk.
Supposing that thli Ideal of io many
Induitrlal combination of worken
could be attained. What would there
be to prevent a syndicate of overpowering numbers ind economic strength
from dictating to a weaker ayndlcate
the termi upon which their reipectlve
product! ihould exchange, without the
leut regard for either "equity" or
"commonesnie."  In face of the power
to take, auch terms become the mere
Babble of altruistic - weaklings, and
the oommon weal ot the community
at large would be submerged in the
itrife of the varioui group! Mch fighting for lti own economic Interest regardless of the effect of that strife
upon the body social.
To those who have hid experience,
the teak ot convincing the whole work-
tag class that it muit organise u one
•olid body Jo not entirely free from
difficulties. The worker can only live
by being-able to sell hli working ability In return tor the necessities of
life, and with a growing and iconitant
element of unemployed ln ill lnduitrlil countries the competition for
Jobs—whloh mean the bread that
men muit have or die—tend! tout
worker agalnit worker In the itruggle
and to make the tuk ot organising
no easier.
- Opponents of that argument will
point with glee to iuch an upriitag-as
that ot the transport worken In England two yean-ago, and ln Ireland
today.- But neither ot thoee Struggles,
are examples of that continued organising effort which comu from- dissatisfaction with wigei and condition!
whloh repreient the price of the hue
necuiltlu of life; They are both the
itruggtoe of desperate men, oppressed
to the depth! of poverty aad starvation by years ot capitalist Imposition.
Given a lufficlency of food,: clothing
and shelter, end knowing the working
clui u thoee who have hid practical
experience of organliiiig work do
know tbem, It it highly likely that the
splendid militancy which animates
their ranks would be idmewhat modified. <
The ordinary effort of the workere
ta their attempt! to go forward li not
illuminated by the Spotlight which Ii
now upon Dublin, and lt Is queitlon-
able If the iplrit which makes for
steady and permanent progreu li the
ume. u that which Is abroad today
in that city. It lacks that calmness
which ll essential to an analytical
study of our problem. -.-,
mend Menu* derived much support
from what he countered wu the failure of the working class repreeiate-
tlvee In the varioui houies of legislature to which they have been elected.
All of which may be true, but It does
not by any meani prove, became lint
attempt! and experiment! have been
disappointing, that the Idea which lay
at the back of thoie experiment! It a
wntag-Ides. If the men who are elect-,
ed and also thoie who elected them,
are not correctly Informed u to the
true relation of capital and labor It Is
little wonder that flrat trials have not
brought the. co-operative commonwealth,      :■'. -, ~
At the ume time It would not seem
wire that the workers should depend'
entirely upon political action and the
mere fact that a law li on the statute
books. The Coil Mlnei Regulation
Act of Brltlih Columbia ll on the itat-
ute booki but experience hu proved
to the minen thit unleu they have
Induitrlal organisation recognlted u
effective by the mlne-ownere, the Jaw
li of very little avail.
Induitrlal action alone requires'that
agitation ihould be railed every time
an ittempt Is made to Impose a new
Iniquity on tbe worken, ind iuch agitation cannot be produced In an hour
by a word or the snap of a finger. But
If by political representation of the
working dm we can Initiate a polloy
of law making hiving for lta ultimate
ldul the abolition of the exploitation
of the worker for proflt aad have
that political effort backed Up and
supplemented by efficient Induitrlal
organiutlon for Uie in cue of need,
then it reem* we can have genuine
hopes of permanent progreu.

When they are unable to reply to

In the «yu of thinking men lt le ao

/ Intelligent men reallie that human being! suffer wrong! whloh

There ire many people'Who are not
ashamed to have, committed a crime,
they only regret that It wu found out
io there are employers ind communities bick of them, who have no shame
for the long work day they enforce, Or
the robberiu they inflict upon employees; tbey are only Indignant that
the' facta ihould be given to the world,
That to the meuure of the people
who decry and denounce the agitator.
It li fortunate thit humanity hu
aome. uch frlendi, uyi the Minera'
Bulletin; for when the truth hu once
been ipoken ibout a wrong lt li like
laying an. axe at the root ot the tree,
deoay and death begins.
Working men have long llnee learned the necuilty of an organlutlon, of
having map its repreient their Inter-
eiti whou; living would not depend,
upon a bou'e favor.
That li the reuon why the agitator
la so sincerely hated by every oppree-
■or of labor.
He cannot be olltjneed.
He cannot be driven out by the ilm-
pie expedient ot a time check.
The advantage! of organlutlon have
been proven by many yesra experience In muy tradea aad industries.
Back group of workera-have their
own ipeclil problem! to be solved and
difficulties to be lUrmounted.
They lelect'men whom they believe
capable of repreeentlng tbelr cauu Intelligently and aiding In the ulutlon
of their problenu.  •.
If their official! and repreuntatlvei
fall ta oarry out their wishes they do
Juit what the whole people do with
their political urvanta, they turn theft
down and chooae othen.
Tbe official! of a labor organlutlon,
(their enemlei and tbe enemlei of the

igiatora), are the lervinta of their
fellow memben, not maetera.
Every age hu had lti agltaton.
Their menage —* depended upon
the need! of the particular time In
whloh they lived.
Woe to the people who have no
votoe protesting agalnit the injuitlce
