Public Works Shortly to be

Municipalities
At pruent writing there are a
large number of builders' laborera
out of employment Buiineu Agent
John Sully itated thit affaire regarding organisation matters were, however, satisfactory. Heretofore the
unskilled workmen have bun supporting two unions, because the grut
amount of work going on In the city
demanded separate organisation!,
namely, Civic Employees'-Union, No.
65, with Its Jurisdiction u defined by
the A. F. of L., and the general
Builders' Laborers Union, No. 230, u
connected with the building tradu
generally. It hu new been decided
to suspend the latter charter, lta
members being enrolled ln the former body to the mutual satisfaction
ot all concerned, By so doing, the
laborera cut down their expense!
without In any way weakening their
system of organlutlon, but In reality
they will maintain their old-time
strength as an active organised body.
It la expected that in the near future two large public worka will again
be itarted. The sewer commissioners
having In hand the building of a
proposed Joint sewerage system for
Point Grey and Burnaby municipalities and the city of Vancouver, are
now calling for tenders for ume Besides the contemplated partnership
water main for theu districts will be
laid across False Creek u soon u
the plane have bun approved by the
Ottawa government. Thla huge undertaking will require the services of
400 or GOO men when the work commences.

WILLIAM D. MAHON
A Trftute
It ll surprising how large a part
sentiment plays In our lives. No man
has exercised a greater Influence
upon my Ufe that "Bill" Mahon, the
International President ot the Amalgamated Association Of * Street Electric Railway Employee! of America.
-The story of hla fight to organise'
industrially tbe atreet ur men of thia
continent 'roads like a romance.
.Twent»«eveu yeara.ago, a motor-
man and conductor were taking their
car Out through the siiburbi of Detroit In the "wee ema*' hour*.*', tt
wu the middle of winter. They puled .the, comfortable homes of the
auburbsaltea. Here add Mere * home
wu well lighted, and the aound of
merry voicei could be heard.' The
comfort suggested by the appearance
of thue homes made .the condition of
the atreet-cSr men all the more unbearable. There were no vestibules
on the cars..- The mules or horses
they drove were taken care of, but
no consideration wu given the men.
Mules are valuable. Men did not
have hone-sense. Mules coat money
to replace. Men were, cheap. It wu
a common occurrence tor the conductor to drag a motorman from His seat
with frown hands and feet On thla
particular evening- when thli particular oar reached the end of the tine,
and the motorman and conductor
were itamplng their feet on the
ground and clapping their hands on
their aides to eat warm, the motor-
man Said to the conductor, "John, If
I never do anything elu In my life, I
am going to-organise the street-car
men of America." The motorman wu
William D. Mahon, and the conductor waa John 3. Thorpe, the flnt'
member secured- by "BUI," and now
lint vlce-prealdent of the association.
To4ay there, sn nearly 100,900
men in that organlutlon. All the
Improvement! streetcar men "enjoy
have own secured through the effort!
df organisation, ind almost every
week sees a new dtaielon established.
The. development' Of BUI Mahon
haa* been very marked: He le a statei-
man. Party, politician! have made
many efforts tb induce htm to give up
Ma work' among atreSt-car. men. They
have always failed. He Inspires confidence ltt hts associates; They would
go through fire and brimstone to
serve him.. He Is not Sn autocrat   I

For the put few months retail

While In Vancouver theie offlcen

have been made upon their respective

reallie, too, the huge possibilities thli

of thla happy turn of event! and redouble their effort! to secure the oo-

engaged to the aame lnduitry. There
Is urgent need of political action. But
the flnt essential Is induitrlal organisation. After that hss been accomplished the membership can be
trusted to determine for themielvei
what they ihall do politically. The
American Federation of Labor and
lti allied International unlona oan

Politically we muit work out our

the right to organiie, not only on
Vancouver Iiland, but everywhere In
Canada, muat be flrmly established,
To secure that right we muit organiie, organiie, organiie. It li probable that too much attention haa
been paid In recent yesrs by the
worken to political action and not
enough to the founding ot a militant

"To know how not to know might
well be the last word of wisdom."   -
Backoappers, like skunks, are
known only by the stink they leave
behind.
The A. F. of L. convention haa certainly been "covered" by the Seattle
dally pries.
To some . economists the trade
union la but a Jest—aa aoon aa the
meal ticket li punched out
1 If Bowier li not afraid of publlo
meetinga he ahould at leaat be
aabamed to show, his face again.
The extent of aome alleged unionist!' activltlei endi with character
anlnatlon of thoie who DO thingi.
"The golden ige lies alwayi ahead.
Today is better than yesterday and
to-morrow will be better than today."
A local box factory advertised laat
week for one young gtrL More than
sixty made application within forty-
eight houn.        .
The lawlessness of the Bowier regime-hu done more to make socialist! In B. O. than all the agitators,
from here to H-—allfax.
Bowaer may be aa wealthy aa he ll
■aid to be, but he and hla ooal mine
friendi haven't enough money to beat
the union minen of Vancouver Iiland.
"Dhe slimiest backcapper on earth
Is the fellow who confidentially whle-

safe distance from the victim of hla
cowardice. ■■■»,..
Some union men are guilty of
saying a lot of thingi about fellow-
unlonliti that they would not dare
repeat on the floor of their union,
Baokcappen are Invariably cowardi.
It will require more than the
polished wile of Premier MoBrlde to
undo the mischief wrought by Big
Chief Bowaer during the former'!
absence among the "dooki." Bowier
U a dead one.
The Vanoouver Island miners are
going to win a complete victory,
whether the time be abort or long,
The U. M. W. of A. will be doing
business in B. C. long after Bowier'i
political demise.
The worken ot B. C] would be Justified, in Introducing suffragette tae-
tlcs If 'Bowier again attempt! to appear on a publlo platform. He
ihould. never again be allowed to
publicly slander those who make hia
miserable life possible.
Bowier'i method of jailing socialist
memben of the legislature la In
keeping with the other Mexican char
acterlstlos of hla administration. It
will not prevent, however, other
socialist memben from being elected
at the next opportunity In thla province;
H'l about time the barbarous
method ot hanging'thoie condemned
to death waa abolished ln Canada.
No leaa than Seven' hangings are
scheduled for the next three months,
weat of -Winnipeg alone. The pro-
posal, too, to hang two young men
for the murder of one policeman
ahould be etoutly protested agalmt
A Strong Sentiment against International war prevail! among the delegates to the A. F. of L. convention at
Seattle, practically every apeaker
who has addressed the convention
having denounced war. The Rev. Sidney Strang, fraternal delegate, declared that "war la a black angel of
Capitalism."
Attorney-General Bowier la not
only an Infernal liar, but a low-down
coward. He ihould never again be
permitted to addreu a public meeting In Brltlih Columbia. A man who
10: deliberately defames and lies
about union .worken, aa Bowier attempted to do at Orange hall laat
week when dealing with the atrlke,.
ihould be tarred and feathered by
the vlctima of hla power and bare-'
faced alliance wltb the ooal baroni.
Some ot the dally apologists for-
the Bowser regime are clamoring tor
inoreaaed pay for scab-herders, who
have been serving the mine ownen
of) Vancouver Inland for the paat few
montbs. The dollara-day scale haa
resulted In a number of desertions
and a mild term of mutiny In the
ranki ot militiamen, whoie chief duty
waa to keep Bowier'i "ipeclali" out
of mischief. To the wage-worker, who
hai been fighting for the right to organise ln this province two bit! a
week would be more to keeping with
tbe services rendered. At any rata
the mine ownen should be called
upon to pay the bin.
Peter W, Collins, the gllb-tongued
gentleman' who waa once Identified'
with the WoNulty faction of the Bleo-
trioal Worken, la atlll lambasting
socialism at ao much per lambaat
Collins ia hla eagerneii to prove too
muoh against aocialtim provee nothing, and oonvloti himself tn ihe minds
of Intelligent men aa a blatherskite
who baa run to atat. The charges
made by Collins will put him off the
lecture platform, for his paymasters
will realise that hla Work Is too coarae
to produce the deeired effeot wanted
by) capitalism. The exploiters want
clever men who can delude the masses of the people, but Collins oan hypnotise no one wbo laya the slightest
clilm to average Intelligence.—Miner >' Magaiine,
'Of all the numerous lessons that
labor hai learned and atlll haa to
learn, thdsmssi Important of all la the
uie of unity. Persons or groups of
persons who foment endless Internal
strife within tbe ranks of labor are
either misguided fanatlca or servile
tools of the enemlei of labor. So long
ii the worken remain divided lt li
eaay for the Interest! that exploit the
worken and fatten on their labor to
continue to be complete maiten.of
lot situation, Only when the worken
get together, stand together aad light
together—when fighting Is neoeiiary
—can they hope to mske any considerable hesdway. For ages labor has
been the undlsgod. Steeped In Ignorance and luperstltlon, the worken of
the paat have beea -the eaay vlctima
of their maiten. For a long time
they hardly dared to think for themielvei. But of late yean there has
beSn a marvalloua awakening within
the ranks of the worken. Every
where they are orgpniilng Into uniom
and Into political- organtsatlone."
New Weatmlnater* corrnpondent:
No, the Retail Employees' Organisation of Brltlih Columbia' la not a
branch of the Retail Clerks' International Union, nor la lt afflliated with
the central labor body to either Vancouver or. Victoria.
Corporatlona generally lncreaae the
capitalisation of their companies to
tbe limit and then expect their employee! to ply the normal nte of lntereat to coupon-clippers, whether increased wagei come or not An lnduitry or business which cannot pay
decent wagea to those who make lt
possible has no further claim for existing.
Bowier hai hli nerve anyway to
face an audience of decent working
men. The reception given waa coming to htm. And then aome. The
worken are getting wise to his coarse
work. True, be ran'away like a criminal at the flrat sign of danger, but
that yellow streak Is true of all (la
kind. Better let the "special!" do
the work after thli.
How much longer will union men
content to beg ind pray of lawyer
politicians and other leglalatlve hired
men of tbe big corporations for a few
concessions in the' way of labor
leglilatlon? Aad then, after they
iecure a crumb or two witness the
spectacle ot seeing the self-same lawa
openly and braienly violated by the
mlnliter reipomlble for the enforcement of the lawf Surely this lervlle
attitude la unworthy of men. If the
memben of organlted labor want
labor leglilatlon and want it enforced 'tbey ahould know by thla
time what they will have to do to
get It Let the workers elect their
own representative! and then there
will be no further need of begging.
Absolutely nothing can be expected
from either the Conservative or Liber
al partlea. They both stand for the
present form of property ownership,
the baste name of all tha Induitrlal
■trite and discontent In thli aa every
other portion ot the capitalised world.
Where Modern School Falle.
One of the arguments In favor of
tke present-day scheme ot education
la that lt keepe the children off the
atreeta. Whether lt doei more, or at
leaat whether lt doee aa muoh more-
aa It ought-to, Is sometimes open to
queitlon. School!, generally speaking, have failed tb keep up with the
wonderfully iwlft paiaage of' eventa
In the outside world. Their blunder
tog attempts to took on the new
without Houghing off the old hare
produced a curriculum calculated to
give a atudent mental todlgeatton of
the wont aort by the time he baa
graduated from the grammar achool.
Mental indigestion ia not exactly the
reeult which ihould be aimed at
Something more .than trimming Is
needed. The achool system ought to
be overhauled altogether and made to
Justify,Itself point by point aa to lti
ability to-mast the needa.of here and
now. By. thli la not meant mere
technical training. The aehooli Ought
to turn out men and women who will
be socially efficient . It Ought to get
rid ot the materialism of facta whloh
haa. obsessed It and teach, far more
than the superficial knack ot handling
tool!,-the ldeallam of service. The
training ot future cltlieni Is a
mighty serious buaineii In a democracy. If It la dona-aa.lt ahould be,
the democracy will Suffer, and It Is
not done aa lt ahould be unless the
flnt emphasis la pleed upon the spirit
of service. A wonderful generation
li ahead of ui. It may iee the socialization of tpany public undertaking!
In this countjp It will certainly demand an anawer lo Social problem!
which will require the highest civic
Intelligence and the utmost telt-con-
trol. An educated, socially conscious
cltiienihip ti absolutely necessary.
Broad-minded men and women, clear
reaaonera. Soberly liberal citizens of
the. world should be the fruit of our
school system. Let ui have culture
If we can. Let ui have technical efficiency If we can. But, above all, let
ua have taught, and re-taught, and
taught again, day in and day out the
leason of cooperation, the lenon ot
progress, the lesson of brotherhood.—

Folly Trying to Whlotle Paste Away
Life la a collection ot* Inexorable
facta, ind aU our prejudice! and all
our strife arise from our attempts to
alter them or eicape from titan. A
striking fact today, or rather a itrlk-
Ing "complex" of facta, as'the psychologist! would lay, la the so-called
economic unrest. Some of us, for
material temperamental reaione, dielike the manifestations of thla un-
reati othen of us weloome them; but
few of ua are able to be aa calm and
well balanced about it aa we ought to
be about facts. Scholars are about

weighing sa the bond sales In the
New York stock exchange." And
Dr. Parker does weigh them, apparently lit much the same way. The

Soclaliit Sciential Dead
Alfred Ruuel Wallace, natural
scientist evolutlonlit and socialist, la
dead at the age ot Si. To him, equally with Darwin aa far aa the clear for
mutation of the theory Ot evolution
through variation la concerned, belong! the great honor that cornea
through thli dlicovery, and to him
belong! the.gratitude of mankind for
the endless vtitai lt openi up. Darwin, however, continued carefully,
painstakingly land with iclentlflo uprightness throughout bis whole life to
Investigate ln one flefd.
Wallace took up another line, and
from the variation of species studied
carefully, he entered on the line-of
the atudy of the evolution of humanity, and It led him to aocialtim. Hli
laat work, written at the age of 90,
'-Social Environment and Moral Progress," )b not only a marvalloua Indication of lib rigor of hla Intellect
but It li llkewlie a book of Wweptlon-
al value in showing that al Individual
progress haa not been great during
the period of known hlitory, social
progress muit take lte place, and a
Juater, freer world be Instituted. He
li the laat of thoae scientists who, In
the middle of the last century, did so
much tb unfetter tbe human mind In
natural, social and political science.
Such men ai Wallace, Karl Marx,
Charles Darwin, Thomas Huxley,
Lewis Morgan and Herbert Spencer,
each to hla separate way, contributed
to that vaat world movement which

The Brewery Workera

signed the aame contracts aa now
exlit to Vancouver, and the Silver
Spring Brewery contract call! for
eight houn per day for the entire

Proebitle concludes: "It now remains
for the new memben to continue to
build further and associate themselves with the general labor movement; educate themselves In trades
-union council!, and become helpful
io. other organliatlona; eipeclally
ahould they become supporters of
their local labor paper and thereby

THE REVERENCED
HELPLESSNESS OP WOMEN
I* the course of aa anU-aoBrage
speech the Rev. Dr.: O'Boyle stated
that the woman'!", place and duty
were home and.motherhood, with a
view to rearing good cltlieni. "In-
terfertnt ta polities would tend, to
take away some of the Oner qualities
of womanhood, tn the aame way that:
the tact that women had Invaded In-
dustry had spoiled women and taken
away their greatest eeeet, feminine
helpleunen." A writer ln the dally'
press recently had aomethlng to say
about "a woman's reverenced help-
lenneii or meekness."
Don the Reverend Father walk
around Vancouver * with hla eyei
closed f At the preient moment there
are In thla olty a great number of
glrli and women who are day by day
trying their beet to Invade aome
branch of lnduitry to get the necessary counters that repreaent food
and shelter. Perhaps the Reverend
Father will device some means of
keeping the bodlei and souls Of
women together without food, and
their bodies warm without clothes or
Shelter that they may remain feminine and charming. .The motherhood,,
the divine motherhood, would have
very little chance ot expreiilng ltielf
today If all Uie women la lnduitry retired from their occupation! and re-
lied upon their mala relatione for
support. *"V   "■
We live ln an age of hard faeta and
not aa Ideal dream land, tre have to
deal with conditions as they are aad
Sot as they ahould he.
Within the laat two generations
women have been forced from their
homes Into Industries. The weaving
that women did with the hand loom
la now done ln factories requiring
the lerrleei. ot hundred! of Women
and children; the meat'that atone
time waa cured la the smoke-houses
to now prepared' In gigantic meat-
packing establishments. Butter la
made at the creamery, the bread at
the bakery.  .'■'■
The education ,of the children haa
paaaed into the hands ot achool
trustees who direct the school curriculum. -.
The whole baaii of woman'* life ta
the home and ln the labor market
haa changed within the laat eighty
or a hundred years, and so as woman's sphere hli broadened out, so
muit we alio—even the Reverend
Father—widen our horhson and assume our share In the problems that
lerlously affect the Uvea of men and
women alike. The child, the home
and the women in the labor market
br affected by leglilatlon, the woman
must then, If she to to do her duty to
home and child, have a right to a
voice In the making of such legislation. H. O.

MINERS'WIVES KEEN
SUFFRAGISTS
At a publlo meeting held under the
auspices ot the Social Democratic
Party on Sunday lait, the' people ot
Nanalmo to the number of five hundred or more, went on record aa being unanimously In favor of "the
parliamentary, franchise being Slanted to women at the next session of
the legislature."
Many of the striking mlnen and
their wives were present, aad the
women, aa a result of the action
taken by the government during the
recent itrlke and the excessive sentences passed on the minera now In
prison, reallie how valuable will be
the possession ot the franchise to
them at the next general election.
The splendid ipirlt of the women
to manifest everywhere ln: the atrlke
area, in their determination to help
their huabanda to win the flght, aad
aa alwaya, the attempt of thoae- In
power to crush any Sign of rising In
rebellion against' the powers that be,
haa resulted in an awakening Into
Ufe In both men and women, a deter
minatlon to win, that nothing can
overcome.    .  H. O,  '
THE NEW
A suffrage debate haa been 'arranged for November 26 In the Lsbor
Temple at I p.*., when Mr: W, J.
Conley will state the caae agalnat
womea'e Suffrage,
THE RIGHTS OP MOTHERS
The result of the votes for women
campaign ta seen ln the proposed leglilatlon for amending lawa concerning
women and the anxiety of the
-party preee to show how muoh the
attorney-general haa done aad pro-
posei doing In thli direction.
The untainted reading ths two column ot matter In the Dally Province
explaining the amendment to the Infanta' Aot, would alraoet think we
had reached the mlllenlum, aad that
Mr Bowier'i Ufe work wsi the guarding of mother! and Infant!.
The real toiue. however, to entirely
overlooked. It Is not the property
fights, of their children that mothen
are io very anxious about,'It to their
own human rights In their children
hire and how, and-In spite of the
eulogy bestowed ofi the amendment
to the Infante* Act, the polities; ot
the mother so far aa her human right!
are concerned remains the aame aa
in the days of Charles II. All
that the amendment haa done to that
the mother haa the right to be co-
guardian to her children with a guardian appointed either by the father
or by the courts after the death of the
father.- The positions of the
mother today to that ihe to not the
parent of her child or children snd
hsS no right of control only through
the courts. - ■■?•
It IS very eareTuUy explained how
much better legislation to along thto
line ln Britlah Columbia when compared w|th the other provinces of the
Dominion."
Women of B. C. are not concerned
with the other province!; they-are
asking for* equal rlghta ln their chU-
drea In B. C and If comparisons are
to be made the women turn to eoun-
trlei where women are voten aad
have equal i rlghta in their children,
aaylng "wo wsnt the name;"
The truth to,' thl! sudden activity to
amend lawi concerning women and
to bolster up preeent lawa by effusive
explanations of their scope and value,
is the usual attempt to keep back the
Inevitable enfranchisement of women.
It to too late, Mr. Bowser's opportunity to poee al a friend ot the
women paaaed away when the women,
after ten yeara' work, faUed to get
the leglilatlon they asked for.
Let Mr. Bowser, and Sir Richard'
MoBride bring In and give full time
and opportunity for the passage of a
Women's Enfranchisement BUI next
session and we shall then take them
seriously when they talk of amending
lawa and earing for the welfare of
chUdren.     * H. a

THE VALUE OP THE
WORKING CARD
The writer haa been asked several
times since last Issue whereto the
demanding ot the. union card to the
key to aucceal and so I will endeavor
to show wherein lt la, saya a contributor to the San Diego.
In the Bret place to have a card a
man must be ln good standing and to
he that he must pay hla fuel. If he
paya hla dues he muit attend the
meetings thereby increasing the attendance and also builds up the
treasury to defray the neceisary ex-
jeuses. A large attendance causes
the offlcen to take more Interest ln
their work and encourage! thoie who
are devoting their energy and sacrl-
flces for your good.
Then, when you begin to attend
the meetinga more often you' begin
to reallie the good then to In It and
what you spend your money for. And
you then will demand that you receive the beat result! for Uie money
expended.
When you demand a card from a
man wbo la delinquent and refuse to
work with bim until he get! one, he
alwayi wUl want to get even and.be
wlU.be waiting and watching ~or
wine one else who hain't a card and
Insist that aa he had to pay up and
get .a card the other fellow wllrhave
<to do the aame.
And io lt will gd on'until everybody will be demanding .the card then
we will awake to our possibilities and
the man ln tbe building crafts of this
city instead ot saying "please" will
say "I demand" and will receive.
Now yon men who attend your
meetinga and are alwaya there the
flrst meeting In the month to pay
your duel lnitot that the other man,
who derive! the same benefit that you
do, pay hla dues aad have a card.
Don't think he will aak you tor youn
—you are wrong If you do.
iTou are the one who must start
tbe ball rolling, so Jet ui get lt
itarted.
WHY MEN SHOULD HELP
WOMEN OET THE VOTE
there are'eeveral reaaoaa.why mea
who are buibaade aad fathers ahould
Help, that the conditions of women
ihould be Improved, that th* wlvn
sad dagghtsra may ba Stars mpect-
ed and have a more secure poittioa
lh the world. Working men for their
own Mkec ihould hup, because the
underpayment of women worken-li a
serious danger to men. Employen
WlU, wherever powtble, turn man off
to replaos them with women at a
leeier wigs and the fact that woman
are obliged to accept uaaU oaralaga
often forcee men to aoeept low wages
too. It Is wsU known that numben
ot women have to Keep themielvei.
There It Is Impoestkle to toll them to
stay st home. Tta only way that
men oaa do sway with the bad af Sets
of female competition la to help ths
women in their itmggle for equal
rlghta—equal pay for equal work.
Men ought to waat women to have
the vote becauee It we are to hsve
strong; Intelligent men nothing ihould
be done to hinder the development of
the mothen. Further, to give women
political reiponilbUity will tasks
them mora able to educate thslr ohlldren to be public ipirited and to be
worthy cltlieni.
A Holland woman haa token the
degree of Doctor of Divinity, but the
Netherlands Church wU not lit her
preach, on account of her eet. Bit
ahe can work to help rales: money to
.bly the male preachma. That la a
prlvUigi always open to women.
Truly, a queer world!   .*:  ^
A paragraph appeared the other
day In a paper stating that "Public
school No. 4 is very proud of having
graduated sixteen young women factory worken, who have- beea attend-
Ing apeelal clmee" But women havi
not aulllcleot Intelligence to vote In
Nov/'Tort!.'.
The Union Label
We want to call the attention of
readen to the union label Onion-
made goodi ooet no more than ieab-
made goods and you know for an absolute certainty that your gooda were
not made by convlota In a penitentiary or by underpaid women'and
ckUdna. The union label la a guar
antee that the gooda are made under
wholeaome condWoaa with regard to
aanltatlon and ventilation, and above
all, the wagea are the highest that
prevail In that Industry. Remember
the union label when you buy your
next olgar or package of tobacco.
Insist on seeing, the. union label on
your next pair of shoee that you buy.
Look for the Garment Workera' label
on your next ault or overcoat 'that
you buy. Accept no hat or cap. that
doean't. bear the union label and don't
forget the union label on your printing. It to neceasary that women be
taught to. ask "for the union label.
Gooda not bearing the union label
have a aad atory behind them. The
"Song of the Shirt" brlnga to our
notice, in a forceful way the necenl-
ty Of avoiding oheap goodi. It la well
to think of theie thingi when you
make your future purchases.
LIKE SLAVES WE TOIL
Like ilave! we toll from day to day,
Like slavei we toll, and get for pay
Scarcely enough to keep our Uvea—
To feed our children and our wlvee.
The belt we have we freely give
Of brain and hand, and yat we Uve,
Though wealth   abounds   on  every
hand,
Aa If a famine filled our land.
The noble souls who iee the wrong
And   date   denounce    tn    accents

With voice end pen would shackles
break,
Not for themselves, but other's sake;
By minions of the law an aetoed
And  thrust In  JaU.    The masters,

TRADITIONAL] SENTIMENT
The conflict today, so far aa votes
for women le concerned, ta a conflict
between traditional sentiment and
modern fact, and thare. to just a little
humbug about our .antlsuffrage
frlendi" argument when they aay that
their reverence for*women Inspires
their deilre to keep them out of the
hurlyburly of politic! and political
strife for their own lakes. The
women are too good and pure .add
must be kept secluded In the home,
where man may worship, protect
and. die for them.
The men who lay thto, and* there
are quite a few, are Juit self deceived.' If they really meant all tbey
uy would they let an angel woman
scrub a floor, would* they alt by and
see an angel girl who to underfed
do dreary and disgusting work fir
A miserable wage and for long hours?
Would they allow the holy mother
with the divine babe at her breast be
aweated and live In foul ilumi?
Would tbey look complacently on
whilst poverty and the lust of men
compel girls to Belt their bodies on
the streets for bread? No; they
would not! So the sooner they fully
waken, shake off traditional sentiment and see modern fiot staring
tbem In the face the better tt will be
for the men and women of today.
B. M,
It to a mere Idle declamation about
consistency to represent It as a disgrace to a man to confess hlmielf
wtoer today than yeeterday—Whato-
ly.
Again the whlpa of hunger crack
And drive the' atrlklng workera back.

THE BUSINESS AGENT.
The name "Builneee Agent," uied
in reference to an official of a trade
union, immediately evolves In the
mlndi ot those not directly in touch
with ihe labor movement all shades
of opinions and criticisms of some
Imaginary person who is not at all
like the IndivlduaUIn question, saya
the Rochester Labor Journal
; Of all the difficult positions ln life
to All, the one of a paid, permanent
business agent ot a trade union li
the wont. Vision! of eaay tlmea, fat
clgara, high salaries, and dictatorial
powers fade away completely aa one
facee the bare facta of hi! hard and
difficult day's work.
Take the average business agent,
for Instance, ot the Building Tradea.
Employer! whose relation! are not
so happy, when they want-men, ring
up the business agent The men who
are out of a Job also report to the
busineu igent and he endeavor! to
satisfy the men snd supply the employer. A business agent la not sure
whieh Ik the most harassing position
to be in, to have a lot of men that
he cannot.find Jobs for, or have tbe
employer driving him for men. v
A great deal of diplomacy has to
be uaad In lending out men, aa any
appearance of favoritism will bring
unpleasant and, ln a great majority
ot caaei, unjustifiable criticism ot the
agent
A difficulty arises In a Shop, there.
fore he muat trot off to iee If he can
straighten thlnga out. Poiilbly he
baa to talk plainly to thi bom, per-
baps to tbe men,
He may not be flnanclal lecretary
of tho union, but be takes dues from
members, and if there are any back-
sliders, be hu the "pleaaant" duty of
bringing them to time.
.He muit know all the ihopi and
the nuniber of men working there.
In. fact, uveral agenta have. Ming
systems, and If you uk for a man
you can be told hla address, where
be works, etc., almoit Immediately.
He goea after non-union men to
build up the organisation, to help
to get better conditions, and smiles
often at some petty foreman, who,
dressed lh brief authority, sheers
and Insults him. „ Yea, he smiles, although his blood bolls, at snubs from
men many tlmea hla Inferior. Sometime! he handi out a sharp rebuke to
a man who, he thinks, Is not giving
the organlutlon a Square deal.'
Hen who come from other cltlea
seek out the buiineu agent He
muit attend to them, direct them to
Jobi, if there are any, tell them where
to. look tor robma, etc., and look after
a multitude of other dutlei.
Union houra, did you eayt Not for
a buiinem agent"' Often he worka
fifteen and sixteen houre a day, for
he la naturally one of the moat active
ln hli own union. He muit not mlu
meeting'night-or eiecutive committee meeting!. He is likely to be a
delegate, to the Lsbor Council, the
Building Trades Council, or the District Council, and takei a heavy share
of the work slong legislative lines
there.
If a strike occurs, hli dutlei magnify, until hii folk* at home rarely see
him except early at morning, or late
at night
High salary? He rarely geta above
the average wage of the mechanic or
tradesman belonging to -hli union.
Many of the better-paid men get more
than he, and work leu houra per day.
He le the ode, too, to whom the
deadbeat telle his story of being broke,
to whom the reel hard luck man reveal! hla plight and thli often means
a dip Into hla own pocket
He knows thst many people who
consider themselves respectable look
at him ai they pan. He ia aware
some employen dlllike him because
he li a Dullness* agent, and many men
criticise whatever he may do.
Why doea he do ltT :
Becauee he believes In the' principles of the. trade union movement
becauee he knowe the majority appreciate, his hard work, hbi uorlflce,
the Hitter pills he hu to iwallow.
So he goei on working, fighting for
better condition!, doing hli but, making mistakes like every other human
being, but learning from them to be
better prepared for the future, taking
his tarn until someone elee shall take
up the burden.
Much misrepresented, little under
stood outside the labor movement, It
ii luoh men thet have made possible
thS world-wide advancement by or
ganlaatlon of the workera toward better Industrial conditions.
Hie Unlucky Days.
Seated In a row; on the porch of an
old-country Inn, with their chalra tipped beck, lome old cronniei were going
on about unlucky days. After all had
given what they considered their Un.

Identical intereetaf—Nltl
Editor B. C, Federationist:—That
hoary old lie that "the interest! of
Capital and Leber are Identical" fi
pretty well playeil out now, and the
wonder la that the workera believed it
ae long aa they did. The average capitalist believe! It yet and he never
cease! to emphasise hii belief whenever and wherever possible, but
thanks to ths arbitrary manner In
which he has held on to his part of
the said identical lnterelta and Ignored the Interest! ot Labor there are
very few working men who are still
Ignorant of the fact that the interest!
of Capital and Labor are diametrically
opposed.
Whatever business the capltaliat engages In it Is with. the sole idea of
making proflt out of it, and the greater
the proflti the greater the success of
the buiineu. But tbe men he employ!
receive no ihare of theu proflti, be
they ever so large, They receive a
fixed wage, Juit luffldnt to support
them from week to week, while the
owner keepi for hlmielf sll tbey mske
over that .fixed wage. If he employs
a hundred men and their combined
labor produce! live hundred dollars a
day ha certainly doei hot recognlie
tho "Identical intereeti" of hli workmen when he payi them two dollars
and a half per day* and keepe two and
a half for himself, although he may be
Laboring under the delusion that he
uoee. He halves the day'a product
with each Individual workman, and If
he employed only one man he would
have a better chance of covering up
the iteal, becauie each would have
one-halt of the day'a product and two
dollara and fifty centi Is not iuch a
great, big steal that it would make
omuh stir In the mind of the average
workman. But al the boss divides up
with each of hla hundred workmen
he gets tiro hundred and fifty dollars
as his share, while the hundred workmen have to content themielvei with
two hundred and fifty dollara divided
up between them.
On the ume principle, tf he employed a thouaano men he would get ten
tlmea u \ much, while the workmen
would get no more than tbelr regular
wage—two dollara. Snd fifty cents a
day. Great scheme, Im't ltT Thli il
the way lt hai always worked. Thli
Is the way the lnterelta of Capital And
Labor are Identical, It la the anrplui
taken from each workman that pile!
I up the wealth for the owner, be It cor
poration or individual.
This Is how the great industrial
companies such ai the C. P. R. are
able to divide such vast sums amongst
tbelr stockholders every year In the
shape of dividends. These stockholder! may never even ue the property,
and certainly they1 never do a tap of
work on It, but they are the ownen
and take the lion's ahare ot the proflti,
while the men Whose toll and aweat
create theu profits are compelled to
accept a -wage that ln a large number
of cases is barely sufficient to keep
them and their families clear of debt
Some writen call thia the "exploitation" of labor, but the Soclaliit writer
calls it Juit plain robbery! How, then,
can the Interests of the robbera and
the robbed be identical? '
Now, while a large majority of the
worken understand thli robbery they
do not undentand the legal way to
remedy It ■ Ther«a»vldcking ell the
time against the. bosses taking too big
a ahare. .They are' quite willing to
divide up with their masters to a certain extent but they my the boeeea
tire too greedy and don't want to allow
them enough to live decently. And
when condition! become unbearable
.they atrlke. In.many Instance! tbat
li Juit what the maatera desire. They
themselves are within the law; the
itriken are outaldi the pale of the
Is*. The view (t
the maatera, free {,
lice, mllltla;, and j
hunt down and c
workmen, who fori

Bgular troops ito
Brce tbe striking
nonce are looked
id rebels agalnat
rounded up, cor
ralled like so many cattle and sen.
fenced to. long terma of imprisonment
for merely lookingj»t a strikebreaker.
And here ia one thing the average
{working man—eipeclally the average
union man—does apt aeem to under
stand, and that la Oat the Capltaliat
system Is solely responsible for the
creation of the thing we know as a
■cab or atrikebreaker. But the-capltaliat knowe thnt If the system under
which he thrives la to continue there
MD* ALWAYS BE A SURPLUS OF
UNEMPLOYED! Were there a Job
for ..every man capitalism could not
continue a year longer!
There Is only one remedy tor the
preient unfair state of thingi, and
thit remedy Is 19 simple that one
would Imagine the ..workera would tall
over themielves In their eagemeu to
epply It But no, theae twentieth century workera seem to be obeiied with
eighteenth century brains. Somehow
they can't grasp the .idea that the law
Itself ii against them. Nearly every
law on the atatute book! today li a
clue law, drawn up by capitalist-minded (olau conscious) politician! in the
Interests of the governing clui, which
li their own clan, and u long, aa
theie clui lawa remain on the atatute
booki 10 long win the muter clui
hold the power to do u they pleaae.
They are backed by the government,
the court!, the army, navy, police, the
press Shd a boat of other sycophantic
Initttutlohi that draw their very existence from the present lyitem. The
muten' action! are alwayi legal; the
strikers' action! sire alwaya illegal.
And the workera It la who elect the
government that li alwaya "agin1
them."    * •
Obvlouily, then; the. only remedy Is
for the workeri to capture the legislatures and parliament—and u the
workeri are tbe vait majority of voters this would be no difficult tsk—
so 11 to be able to pan laws in their
own behalf. I do not. mean clau lawa;
we have too many <jf them now, What
the whole civilised world need! ll a
syBtem of .plain, simple laws tor ALL
THE PEOPLE There la obly one way
to do this.. -'SJ..
Many workera who are clearly able
to size up the situation often Stultify
their alms by voting for what they
term, a "good man" In one or other ot
the two great political partlea. They
ought to know that the "good man'! la
atlll a Liberal or a Conservative and
MUST VOTE WITH HIS PARTY or
get out of politics. More often the
"good man" Is run by scheming party
managen aa a bait to catch the votei
of iuch simple-minded workeri whole
thinking apparatus li more or leu befogged. It hai beep proved over ind
over again that the ."good man" li
powerless to do anything for labor.
There li only one political partv
that standi for. the rlghta of all workeri, for the freeine of labor from lta
present servile condition, for the uplift of alt humanity, for. the real free-
WHO RUNS UNION?
There are memben of unlona who
are continually complaining about the
way their union li run but who never
help run It They pay their duel when
tbey are urged to but never attend a
meeting If they can get out of It and
when they do they generally come to
the conclusion that those wbo are doing all tbe work which they themselves are neglecting constitute a little
ring having a desire to run things.
The fact ot the matter la that lt these
few active members did not do the
work they are doing that nothing
would be done at all. It they run the
union It la only because the members
of the union tall to attend the meetings and aee to lt that thlnga are run
by a larger number.
If any action is taken tbat does not
ault any member.of a union and iuch
displeased member wu not present at
the meeting at which the action wai
taken he ihould blame hlmielf a whole
lot more than anybody elu. It wai
hii business to be there and make nil
argument on the floor of the union.
If he neglected to do thli he ihould
keep hli peace afterwardi.' It the nature of the action be auoh that he believes lt should be different he should
at leut go to the next union meeting
and there rlgliter hli kick instead ot
whining outside and never going near
the meeting.
Is the final analysis It li the member! of every labor union who run' It
It they fall to attend meetinga they
are doing that wblch If Sll did It
would kill the union. Every member
who stays away from a meeting of hie
union la doing that much to kill It
The smaller the attendance la the
wone lt goea and when the attendance ceases the union li dead. **
Don't be among thou who complain
about aomebody running, the union
when you are neglecting to do your
part. Better blame younelf for everything that goes wrong becauie you
are a part of the union end failure to
attend meetings la a far worse offence
tban making a mistake trying to do
something. R you attend the meeting
end get voted down by what you call
the ring, don't quit In disgust and
leave the ring to complete control but
itay with and induce the othera to attend the meetings to help straighten
matters out No ring can run a union
If the memben do their duty. The
majority can alwaya run their own
union whenever/they want to. It la
their plain duty to do thla Instesd ot
Sulking In the back-ground and knocking.—Eureka Labor Newi. *

the etas of the audience at tha meet-
lag held lut wuk by the Conurva-

BillSui Billy. '
Chrtatlan Biverts, pmldint of ths
B. 0, Federation of Labor,, occupied
the chair and gave a brief outline of
the reason for forming the Itinera'
Liberation League, and stated that a
few resolutions would be nut to the.
meeting before adjourning.
J. C. Turner, organiser for the
weiallat party, ipoke at eome length
on .the condition of the working tnan
under the preeent government,, elating that the dally press wu trying
to oonvlnoe the public thit the
miners on ths iilaad were nothing
more than a lot ot Ignorant brutes,
to be thought of only as elavu. He
believed the reuon the mine ownen.
were supported wu the deelre of the
preient government to capture Nanalmo and Newcastle seats, but thit
,they would flnd the working man was
not to bluffed any more.
Mr. J. Place, M.P.P. took the floor
amidst great applause. He stated
that ha had only been liberated from
prison on Saturday, with a hundred
other mlnen who were taken when
Bowsar*a helpers were unt to corral
all the men- who had any aaad to
•tend up for; themielvei. He jtold
them how and why he wu arrested.
A certain Mr. Rank Shepperd, M.P.,
a member of BiBy'i clique, called a
meeting to explain the conservative
aide of the trouble. After speaking
at aome length, Mr, Place Jumped up
and explained the workers'. Side of
the trouble, Mr. Sheppard'a apeech
wu publlihed in the Nanalmo free
Preu a few days after Mr. Place wu
placed in jail for speaking at a "riotous" meeting, allowing that Hr.
Place, being one of ths hsrd workere
for the working mu. Bilious Billy
dsolded lt would 4» batter to have
him out of the way. He alao believed
the reaaon bell wu refuied wu because Mr. Bowier, who had iSat
mllltla to the district, wished to
make the offenoe appear u ssribis
u poulble. Tke working men were
urged to orgsaiu u thli wu not
only u tnduefxtal flght but a political one u wetfeaad the present government ebouldVe shows that we
had had enough of their admialatra-
Oeo. Hardy elalmed that the Btrike
wai organised by the government
through the mine' ownen and the
working man must aee that thla itate
of attain oeaaed. It wu up to every
worker In B, 0. to ue that the miners
were liberated at oace. We ihould
do u the worken In the old country
have done, lay dawn their tooii until
they gat what thsy uked for.
t&uldont Pdetar of Dlitrlet No. IS,
tow'tke floor amidst loud applause.
Ha gave the history of hour the u. M.
W. aame to tha blind, after the amalgamation of all mtnon on the
Island. Ths. men who took prominent part in organising the union Were
then laid off, In that way trying" ta
break down the union. .After- the
flrst day or two the' government eent
In fifty special police, not to keep
order but'to force the Ailatlce hack
to work. The next move the mine
ownen made wu to call the mllltla,
aad whsn they held a regular meeting, wan,Surrounded end Marched,
not with the object ot finding any
flrearmi bat to try and nl» trouble.
If the V, a. W. went to the McBride
government to-day and offered to
leave the island, if the men in Jail
wen given their freedom, what Weald
they eeyt Tea, by all means. But
the: men In Jail would rather stay
then than give up their right to organise, whloh would help to give
hem natter working OondlUoni, and
he would ssy that then would be ao
reconciliation with the mine ownen
untO thslr union wu recognlied.
Advantage had been taken of the
situation to lncreue the hold of the
mine ownen on Aaiatlc labor. In
Cumberland then wen now-shoot
one thousaad Asiatic! and a number
Of negroes employed In snd around
the mines.
In alluding to'thi sentences given
the minera by Judge Howay, he declared that the action of the Judge In
giving out an Interview, to Juitlfy hli
sentenoM wu unprecedented In the
annate of Brltlih courts.
The following. orginlutloni combined to promote the muting: B. C.
