FOR BOWSER RULE
Most Amaxing Prosecutions
on Record Equalled
by Judge Howay
Same Methods in1913 Will
Secure Release of Imprisoned Miners
Six men, earning 7a, per week,
tranaported for seven yeara for daring to seek an advance of wagei!
Could such a thing have ever hap-
pened In thla country? It leemi Incredible, yet it ii an absolute fact.
Moreover, it oeourred leaa than eighty
yeara ago—In the year 1834.
Thla wai one of the moit amazing
labor prosecutions on record. Not
thit sentences ot transportation on
trade unionist! were uncommon—1
theie oeourred frequently—'but became at the tune of this particular
caae the lawa agalnit workmen combining had been repealed, and illegal
meana were Introduced to iecure a
conviction.
Up to the year 1825 it was Illegal,
under heavy penalties, for workmen
to combine for any purpose whatever.
In that year the Combination' Lawa
were repealed, and thla gave a great
Impetus to the growth of trade
unloni   ,
Six Todpuddle Laborera
Prom the Unit, however, employen
and othen itrbve to have theae mea-
sure! re-enacted, and even strengthened. Such wai the vigor displayed,
that during tbe "Reform Ministry" of
1833 It seemed certain that' aome auch
return would he resorted to. .The
unions, however, appear* to have afforded no auch sufficient pretext' for
Interference, though action of aome
sort became Inevitable. When It
name, it fell on alx agricultural labor-
era of Todpuddle, an obscure pariah
In Dorset
Then the laboren In that dlatrlct
were earning 8a a week ot aeven
daya, farming pursuits necessitating a
certain amount of work on Bundayi,
Elsewhere in. the county 8i. and 10s.
pere week were being paid. On application for an advance, the Todpuddle farmera agreed to give their
men another shilling. Thla waa in
1888. In 1833 they took the ahilling
off agalna,
Previoui to thia date the persons
who by law Sxed and Battled all mat-
ten in regard to Wagea were the local
Justices of the peace. This prevailed
all over the country, and ia Intonating In view of the recent leglilatlon
In regard to wagei, Thinking that
theie legal powers were itlll veited
In the magistrates, the Todpuddle
men laid their grievances before a
looal J. P. They; wen Informed that
Justices could no longer uttle ouch
affairs, but that the men muit work
for whatever wagei employen offered
them. On thli letter being communicated to the farmers, who were probably aa Ignorant on the law aa their
men, theee generous persons promptly reduced wagei to 7i. a week. Then,
In self-protection, the men formed a
union. .'','.
Convicted at the Anises
Whsn tils hsd been In operation
for only tour, monthi a proclamation
wu issued by the local magistrate!,
cautioning workmen agalnat forming
and Joining unloni—and threatening
transportation for seven yean u a
penalty. Three dayi later alx men
were arrested and thrown into Dor-
cheater jail. Their names were

an "Illegal" meeting on the previous
8th of December, two monthi before

named Lacs, who had obtained membership of their aoclety by the uaual
meana employed by iuch persona.
Sent for trial, the men were duly
panelled at Dorchester on March 15,
1834. Aa ther had done nothing Illegal under any Aet relating to trade
unions or any similar societies, they
were charged under the aot of 1791-
97, paiaed for suppression ot mutiny
among seamen and marines. Thli,
lt li interesting to note, Is the ume
meuure under which recent "syndicalist" prosecutions were conducted.
Found .guilty, In summing up
agalnat the men the Judge aald: "Not
for anything they had done, or intended to. do, bat as an example to
othen he conaldered it hli duty to
pass sentence of seven yean' transportation on each prisoner."
And across the sen the luckless
men duly Went!
Immediately, after the conviction
the country split up Into two factions,
one upholding the ferocious sentences
the other condemning them. Among
those who approved wu the Times
newipaper, which by way of comment
expressed fear of the "criminal and
fearful spirit of combination which
had aeixed, aa a pestilence, on the
working-classes of the country."
More Amulng Still
Petitions for revoking the cen-
tenoei were got up all over the kingdom, but before Lord Melbourne and
the government would consent to con-
■lder the matter priionen had bun
hurried out of England. Eminent
lawyen took up the caae and proved
that the men had bun illegally convicted. More surprising still, leu
thin S month after having approved
the oonvtctlona, the Tlmei wrote:
"The crime which called for punishment wu not proved; the 'crime'
brought home to the priionen did
not Justify the icntence."
And now comei the moat amulng
part of thli truly remarkable affair.
Two month! after the trial Lord John
Russell itated In the House of Common! that "the Dorchester unlonlit!
wen to he set at liberty, and- aent
back to England free of expenae and
with every necessary comfort,"
At that moment the men were on
their way to. the convict aettlementS.
Three yean later they were still convict! In Tasmania. One of them,
Oeorge Loveless, only learned that he
had been "pardoned" on reading an
artlole to that effect In a London
newapaper he accidentally got hold
of. And, thla was two and a half
yean after he had been respited.
'Immediately on seeing the statement, Loveless addressed a letter to
the Hobart "Tasmanlan," Inquiring
whether hli ave companion! (whom
he had lost sight ot) had been released, and If io, why he had not been
-Included.
Wae the Pardon All "Bluff"    .
The reeult waa that after a while
Loveleu wu unt for to Interview
the colonial authorities at Hobart
r-rom these he learned that he had
been pardoned—and the reaaon he
had now been sent for wu to offer
him a free paaaage home.
On official suggestion Loveleu had
aome time previously Sent for hli
wife to join him ln Tumanla, aad
for anything he knew ahe might even
then be on the way out. Consequently he asked to remain until auch
tlmu u ihe either arrived or he
heard from her by letter. To thla re-
quest he got the following reply lh
writing:
"1 have to Inform you that unless
yon go (home) by the pruent opportunity, the OOvernment will not be
able to give you a free paaaage.—
Joalah Spode, October 8, 1886," -
Loveleu did not accept the "opportunity," but when, aome time later, he
received a letter from hla wife uklng him to come home Instead of her
going out to Tumanla, he again applied for passage. After great difficulty and many Indignities thie wu
at length secured, and on the ship
Eveline, Loveleu ultimately arrived
in London ln June, 1837—three yean
after he had been pardoned, Of hli
comrade! ln misfortune, only Ham-
mett appeara to have returned to
England. What became of the other
four doea not seem to be exactly
known.
And now the questions naturally
ariae:* Wu the "pardon" ot theee
men merely Government bluff to allay
public indignation! If not, why, and
by whom wu lt withheld! And why
wu every subterfuge tried to keep
the men in Tumanla?
There la an ample aniwer to the
latter queitlon—the thing! these men
nw, Snd their cruel wrongi Snd mt-
firings, tf told In 'England, would
have Inflamed the whole country,

THE WORKERS FORUM:
. Nanalmo Press Committee
Editor B. 0. Federationlit: ' So
much haa been eald and done in connection with the Industrial strife ln
the Nanalmo district thst the wisdom
of comment under exlitlng circumstances may well be questioned; but,
when we coniider our obligation! to
tbe paat, the preient, and future, the
highest claims muit be responded to.
Had the population, of Canada.been
large enough to work her natural re-
•ouroei of wealth there would have
been no need for-her representatives
to have gone beyond her own boun-
darlei with their tempting baits to
induce emigration, but, becauae thla
waa not io, other countries have been
Hooded with agent! and literature to
preient her apparent generous termi
to the unsuspecting worker, with the
result that hundreds of famlllee today
are in the midst of undreamt-of condltlona. Now, air, we oontend that
any government which allows advertising for this purpoie ihould be held
responsible for the creation of conditions sufficiently favorable to make
the highest type of subject from a
moral, social and -Intellectual standpoint. So far aa Individual! are con-
corned we are. aware that our con-'
ceptiona ofllfe differ very much; md
yet tbe deilre for. betterment throbs
within the breast of every intelligent
penon, along with this native aspiration environment and education are
powerful factors in the moulding of
our Ideas, and, when It la aeon that
a certain section of the race haa and
doei enjoy- Immense advantages
above the struggling majority and
makei the meet determined efforts to
solidify their position Irrespective ot
the rlghta of the brother In adversity,
It li no wonder that working men
combine and look for eavlouri amongit their own'ranki. The effort!
of concentrated capitalism to suppress
the progressive strivings of the
masses, li limply antagonising thoee
who know lti hlitory anil minion, Ai
In the paat, ao ln the preient, every
etep. Ih the path of Induitrlal and
aoolal reform ii to light for. No sooner ti the doctrine of human rlghta declared than those who live on the products of Its violation are up ln armi
agalnat It, Illustrations are common
and up-to-date to ahow bow the force
of government la used to execute
Judgment without mercy upon Its advocates. Event! In connection with
thla Itrike remind! me Very much of
the itrugglei and.treatment of onr
fathers for industrial freedom
through the medium of tradei unionism. It li true In some respect! we
are In advance of their early oondlUoni, but lt may not be too much to
aay—they paid the price for the lux-
Uriel we've enjoyed In the way of
shorter houra and a higher rate of
wagei, but what haa been done with
tbe principle and system for wblch
tbey fought, loitered, and triumphed.
Whoever expected that the scenes of
seventy' and eighty years ago would:
be re-enacted under British rule for
the recovery of what men, in their
Insane rush for wealth, allowed to
betaken from them. Esau's folly ln
selling bis birthright for a men of
pottage hai oft; been repeated In
human history. Possessions which
should have been bald ae sacred and
tenacious as Nabnth'i vineyard and
handed down unsullied to the rightful
heir, have been captured bv the cove-
toni and over-reaching, and the Inheritance of the wronged one hai
been made the snorting ground of the
fortune hunter end oppremor. And
hence the mlnen on Vanoouver
Iiland todav ara contending wltb the
powers tfeit be for the restitution nf
a system and the operation of a prin
ciple whloh will guarantee them that
degree of protection and Justice
whioh they feel honestly entitled to.
The reasonableness ot iuch a demand Ihould be apparent without an
ailment The mlnen' right to organiie haa been publicly admitted, even
by Journals which through their connection and circulation, have been
uied aa tool! to cruih the came of
tbe needy and uphold the claims ot
those who neither toll nor spin—bnt
along with this admlnlon there IS
the objectionable dictation of suggestion of the kind of union that will
meet with the maatera' approval
"Surely In vain the net to ipread
In sight of any bird." In a general, way working men are painfully conscious of their educational limits. But If, In addition
to the lack of opportunity the. school
master and books have failed, tradition and experience have made their
Impress. When ln the past negotiations have failed to adjust a grievance and a itrlke haa followed In
abnoat erery Instance where. the
worker haa been defeated lt his been
chiefly through tbe laek of funds, and
the existence of men, who either
from feSr or for favor have betrayed
their fellowi and the cauae they were
seeking to establish, and vthls very
fact la leading men today to seek the
strength of univenal fedentlon.
Mttch hai been said in the column!
ot the preu about the constitution of
the United Mine Worken ot America,
lti Imaginary objectionable feature!
have been dilated upon and lti leaden vilified; but from the infant to
tbe man of hoary head It haa opened
lti treaaury and. made reaionable
provision for common necessities during this struggle. Thl Interests of the
worken, both In prison and out of lt,
have been tbe Interut and the concern of lta. ofalola.1 snd their endeavor! to prevent or alleviate Buffering
hai proved them to be men with human hearta bleit with the common
feellngi of humanity.   ,
One very gratifying aspect of this
atrlke la the solidarity of the mlnen.
Beraecutlon usually helps to spread
the very eauie which lt iieki to de-
itroy, and the men and method! employed to oruih the spirit of the
striken, and torture their Innocent
dependant! (In thli lnitance) have
unconsciously educated the working
imputation of Vancouver Iiland and
given them an Impetus for service
wblch we hope will eventually be
seen in the displacement of men of
greed, graft and tyranny and the
transformation of Induitrlal, social
and national life.

Tou may have youi* own Ideaa on

exouse me, to suppress those yon'do

Is the offlclal organ of orgahlsed labor
and ilnce organlied labor hold! prao-
tlcally no educational meetings, it lit
made up of all manner of opinions.
Let there be light. Then can no
good come of keeping any subject
dark, more particularly one having to
do with the Interests of the worker.'
Working men generally would think
It hell to be deprived ot the bsllot,
and yet they might almoat as well be
tor all the use they make ot lt The
worken have power to sell, and thto
power uied In their own Intereito
would be the making of them and of
mankind as a whole. They also hare
power to give away, and one of the
olaces they give It away to at the polling booth.. Thto might be rectified If
organlied labor held educational
meeting!, which they distinctly re-
fuae to do. Politic! are forbidden In
the union and the reault to thit they
might aa well be dlafranohlaed,
which, In faot, a very large proportion are. For thto reaaon I would
like to iee a labor party formed. Thla
li probably heresy.from the regulation socialist' standpoint, but we
might aa well recognise thing! aa

Ideas ara much cloeer to lt than

The 8. P. of 0. Is not a very kindly or

suppressed entirely unless one It willing to walk the chalk line drawn hy
that section of the worken. Tha
new pirty, If It comei Into existence,
may be a reform party, and tbe S. P.

Reform based on revolutionary principles to in fact revolution, and there

FINANCING. A TOMB.
It Ii a great thing to be tbe father
of one'a- country, It differs considerably from being an ordinary father.
When the common father dlea aad ii
burled, it la the privilege ot each and
sundry of hii descendants to visit
the laat aad resting place ot the once
proud and happy parent, and weep
copiously, without having to pay
extra for ao doing. But the decerned
progenitor of a great republic Is not
■o barren of flnanclal reiulta.
iTbere li Oeorge Washington, for
instance, father of the United States
of America, Including Colorado and
Weet Virginia, two of hla ohlldren
who aadly need'a lerere step-father.
He waa laid to rest at Mount Vernon,
Vs., fourteen miles South of the city
which bean hia name, Theie fourteen miles muit be traveraed by the
thousands ot the great man'a descend,
ants, who wiih to vlilt the hallowed
•pot, via the Mount Vernon and
Marshall HaU Steamboat Company.
Thii concern charges three times
the ordinary rate for carrying patriotic Americans to, their Mecca. Thui,
in being the Father of hla country,
Oeorge Washington did not live In
vain. Though hla flesh waa but mortal, aa la that ot. other fathers, it
atlll hai power to Inspire the business-like American to make a more
or less honeit dollar out of hli iintl
mental fellow-oltlieni.    ■   -
LITTLE TOO CLOSE.
"Our beloved Premier,-' aald MT.
A. H. B. Macgowan, recently, "la giving the Oriental question nil cloieet
attention."
. He li. It there -Uvea a Japanese
fisherman, or a Chinese alleged miner
In the province of Brltlih Columbia,
who does not heartily endone the

ungrateful wretch.
The beloved one. la no doubt giving
the Oriental queitlon the lame- kind
oi close attention he gives -the enforcement of the Coal Minea Regulation, act He would do well to give

Conceive, if you can, not only the
inconsistency, but the arrogant Insolence of person! whose luxurious ex-
pendituree often reach a thousand
dollara in a single day contending
that the poor are poor merely became they do not accumulate .enough
rlchea to put them beyond the reach

not loup enough to go around, add a
Uttle more water—and work harder.
If there are any batter-oakei left over
put them away ln moth balls for another season; they may , shrink a
little but they will fill almost as
great a void under the waist-band

and, presto, you have a neat pair of

LABOR FEDERATION MI8SION.
The queation la often naked, "Why
do we pay per capita tax to an International body, a central body or the
provincial federation," iaya the Milwaukee Leader,
The principal reaaon that workers
Join labor unlona la to batter their condition!.
The worker who has given thought
to the subject reallie* that the day
when he could successfully Mil hli
labor power Individually haa pined,
Today, to obtain In aome measure
the thingi to which he la entitled, he
muat bargain collectively."
He la confronted with an employer!1
aaioclatlon, with which he cannot hope
to cope aa an Individual worker.
Therefore he Unites with other work-
era whOSe problem! are similar to hli
own and together- they organise a lo-
cal union* ' ■-- ■■
If they organise along craft llnee
tbey become through affiliation a part
ot the national or International organ,
ixation of their particular craft.
Neceeiity soon taught them thst
other workers are confronted with
practically ths same conditions and
that to acoompliih the results desired
some method of getting the workeri
or different occupation Ia closer touch
with each other muit be adopted.
Thue the central body and provincial
federation were evolved. At the meet
Inge ot the oentral body, questions ln
whieh all sre Interested are discussed.
The question of Jurisdiction or any
particular place of work la Bottled,
with the aulatance of the locals and
International! Involved.
Good work can be done by a live
eeatnl body for the label and In helping organiie the unorganised workera.
Among many other matten the following .'msy be mentioned aa coming
within the iphere of the provincial
federation of labor, legislative activity,
the work done to obtain the enactment of lawa to better the condition
ot the workera, and to defeat billi
detrimental to the working class.
No revolution ever rises shove the
Intellectual level of thoee who make
it, and Uttle ia gained where one falae
notion eupplanta another. But we must
aome day, at laat and forever, croea
the line between nonaenie and common aenee. An#on tbat day we ihlU
pass from din paternalism, originally
derived from the fetich fiction in tunes
of unlvernl Ignorance, to human
brotherhood in accordance with tbe
nature of. thing! and our growing
knowledge of It; from political government to Induitrlal admlnlitratlon;
from competition In individualism to
individuality In co-operation; from
war and despotism In any- form to
peace and liberty—Carlyle.
The old Idea iiemi to prevail among Vancouver Island coal mine
owners, that lt la of more concern to
appaaae the brutal authority of aome
operating manager, of tbe type of
Coulson, thsn it ia to enter into an
sgreement with a labor organlutlon.
True, lt la being gradually dissipated,
bnt It haa mads mining unprofitable,
doomed the Bowser-MoBr.de government; landed a couple of hundred ln
Jail; put several "managers" In the
hospital with nervoui breakdown and
ooat the miners a lot of needleu time
snd money. The price seems high,
but future Induitrlal conditions on
the Island will Justify lt.
There was once a dlicunlon between Hr. Pitt and some of hli frlendi
on wbat were the Qualities moit
needed In politics.- Was lt knowledge,
patience, courage, eloquence, or what
waa ltt Mr. Pitt aald, "Patience." We
liberals have tried patience for twenty
years. I vote we now try "courage."
I ny again, don't let ua be afraid of
our own abadowa. We have pnncip.es
we believe In, we have faith, we have
great tradition!, ind we have a great
caun behind ua and before ui. Let ui
not lose courage and straightforwardness.—John Morley.
There Is no more uplifting habit

Self-love le a necessary. Indestructible, unlvereal law and principle, in-

whether in religion,. philosophy, or

Both Egypt and the chosen of dot

at the commencement, of pure morale,
the Romana wire domeitlo tyrants

the laws were io hard for the pleb*.

many of the worklng-claaiei of today)

yoke of marriage. To keep the working elaaiee quiet, and to atrengthen
and enrich the arlatooraoy, Rome
never, ceased war Is her efforts to
secure treasure and slaves; for the
building of their great roads, itretch-
lug from one end of tbe empire (the
empire which comprised the whole of
the then known world)'to tbe other.
For their unheard-of vice and Immorality the Romani lehemed snd

March on, march on in power,
For .on the watting agea
Has dawned your triumph hour.

Artie from sorrow's night.
Your comradei gather round you,
Clear sounds the butle's tone,
And never mon shall women
Tread thorny waya alone.

And-letthe captlvea free,

divines of today quote et Paul

beneath notice) but none remember
when men filch' women's goods and

other apostles), he told men to protect, cherish and give their Juit duel
to the women of their families.

It li interesting to learn that there
la a doctor in'America who hu no-
ceeded In returning the dead to life.
Dr. A. U Sorest ot Fordbam University
haa startled the medical world by the
announcement of result! of experiment! In transfusion of blood from
live animali and human beluga to
thoie. apparently moribund. The doctor deicrlbed tbe caae of a pneumonia
patient dead to all known teiti.
Transfusion into the Juglar vein
brought prompt return to life and
complete recovery of the. patient
So we go on achieving wonderful
thlnga. We can do almost anything
with people, except to keep, them
healthy. And that la Juit the kick that
needi to be regiitered.
Not that science doesn't know how
to keep people healthy. It knowe exactly how to do It But Mlence Is so
secondary to commercial "aucceaa"
that the poor medicine men don't get
a chance to put their knowledge into
.practical operation,
We know, even the average run of
ui, that tuberculosa! need not exist
We know that It le a preventable disease, doe entirely to the conditions
under whloh people live. Ws know
that thoae condltlona are artificial and
brought abouf by the dealre of aome-
one to make money out ot the labor
of others.
We know that lead poisoning Is a
diieaae traceable directly to an Inolfr
dlnate dealre for profits. We know
that the same thing la true of phony
Jaw. All of the long Hit of occupational fall In the same claas. Typhoid
le a preventable disease. Nearly all
diseases of the alimentary traot sre
traceable to faulty economic conditions. A great number of defects In
children find their source in the ssme
None knowa theie thingi io well aa
the man of medical science, even
though many men who practice medicine aro not scientist! at all, but are
merely crude guessers and bungling
-dope-admlnlsterors. But the .medical
fraternity aa a whole ii fully aware
of the causes of what we may term a
great class of economic diieaaes.
So what we are moit intereited In li
not that aome aavant baa lucceeded
ln reviving a dead man, but In seeing
the whole medical fraternity swing.
Into line for preventive work, the need'
of which it undentand! fully, but the
.practice of which it haa almost en.
tirely neglected. There are aome craaa
Individuals who will isy that the doctors are intereited* in retaining economic condltlona aa they are io that
the aupply ot revenue from lick people
may continue. I would not be so rude.
I would merely Say that .the doctora
have been narrow enough to seek
merely tor Individual remedies, when
a collective remedy Is what ii actually
needed. Either that, or they are afrsM
of the care!—Cheiter M. Wright

From South Wellington
Editor B. O. Federationist: There
were great doings In South Wellington on the night of November 14th,
when lour ot bur "desperate* Jailbirds" came home from Bowier'i
cottage by tbe iea, after partaking of
the benign one'i hospitality for near,
ly three monthi, They were met on
the way homS by the South Welling,
ton Juvenile tin band to the stirring
strains ot the MarseiUalae. Harry
O'Connell gratefully thanked hia fel-
low-unlonlata for the kind reception
accorded bun and hli fellow "desperadoes," alao for the luccenful efforts
made ln procuring ball for them, Ai
one who waa let "but on 18000 ball
some four weeks ago, and, with the
other "double-dyed villains," la awaiting the pleasure ot Bowier and hla
partisan Jury, I wish to add my
thanka to the Miners' Liberation
League—(or I feel confident-that .thla
wholesale granting of bail la due, to.
a great extent, to their agitation. AU
that Is now: needed la to keep up the
commotion, until we get a repetition
of Jim Larkln'a cue, procure the re-
lease of our brothers who aro at present In Jail, and enure the remainder
who are waiting trial of a fair and Impartial trial before a Jury that ia not
"hand-picked" by Napoleon Bowser.
Continued agitation will do all thli
In Bpite of what Tom Crothen,
Shoe'black'botham, Judge Hoorey (I
mean Howay) and all the other
bought capltaliat parasites lay.
Strange to aay our little demonatra-
tlon was not Interfered with by
Bowser's bums, presumably they were
exhausted after their efforts to bull-
dose a young girl whom they accused
of calling a scab a "acab." Anyway
what are we to call an animal of that
calibre, without shocking the morals
of the honeet community, when they
«ive themielvei that name, as the
following Incident ahowa: One ot
theie animate walked Into a Nanaimo
saloon with the word! "I am a South
Wellington acab." He wu promptly
told to get out, when the acab, after
threatening the man with artbat, went
out and brought in two of Bowier'i
acab-herdlng police:..Despite the protests of eye-witnesses, the police attempted to arrest the two men for
oalllng thli creature a acab when two
soldiers, with true manllnesa, promptly acquainted the police, with the true
■tate of affairs, with the reeult that
the self-named scab wu arrested. I
would .like to make a suggestion Jo
tbe Mlnen' Liberation League, and,
tbat la, after they have accomplished
the liberation of the miner!,- that IJiey
Slightly alter ths name of the league
and. call lt the Bowier Liberation
League. They can then keep, up the
agitation until Bowier Is liberated ao
far from offlce that it will cost him |9
to send a postcard back, and with bun
all the rest of the lmbeollee who sre
helping to give thli province to Mackensle & Mann, and in their place put
useful members of society. Let me
quote some of. the sayings of our intellectual Idiots. The Honorable Sir
Diok aald he wodld drive the looiil-
tits over the RoOky mbuntalni, .but he
itarted the wrong way. While he

for Mackenale t Mann, he left genial
Idiot Bowser to do the driving, and
he drove sb well that he ii the beet
■oelallat organiser the province bu
erer seen. I uw men ln Jail who
had been hidebound, coniervatlvee
come out with theJexprenlon "loclal-
tim tor me in theiuture." So instead
of driving them out, Dioky hu materially itrengthened them. T. Crothen,
mlnliter of labor, in an interview
granted to labor men, laid that he
would take up leglilatlon to prevent
molestation and Intimidation of "free"
workmen by uniog men. Haven't we
on Vancouver Iiland had enough of
that kind of dope, when men have
been arreeted toy looking oroaa-wlie
at a, scab? He aald the government
would not tolerate any disorder! of
the kind recently occurring In Vancouver (I am * quoting the Montreal
Dally Star), and* would adequately
punish all offenderS* la moh cues. He
alao aald he had done hia duty In trying to bring about a satisfactory adjustment. Yes, he came, he aaw and
he went away again. Grievanoei that
were laid before bim brought forth
the reply: "I dont believe it" He
wu like tbe countryman who raw a
giraffe for the fint time, "There ain't
no such animal," he .laid. Still we
need hot take much notice of twaddle
coming from iuch a source, u he
simply hu to do, hla suiter's bidding. Mr. Shtebotham said about'three
monthi ago that the men were getting
dluatialled with the paltry 84 a week
and were beginning to see that they
were in the wrong; but -preient
event! limply refute all thoie malicious, lying atatementa. I wrote the
Nanaimo Free Preu refuting .those
atatementa, hut they omitted my letter after promising to publish it I
have reuon to believe that they
ehowed It to Shoebotham, beeause
when I took the letter to ihe offloe
they were scared ot a liber action,
and ilx weeki later, when I came out
of Jail, I uked them why they hadn't
printed my letter and tbey said they
would have been hauled up for contempt of court, whloh looked rather
flaby, u they wouldn't give my letter
buk. Mr. Shoe'etc.) hu raid Juat
lately that the big leniences were
good stritabreakefi, but, Mr. Lawyer'
man, guesa again! They are liable
to be good government-breaken before theyiw done. 5hMB0.tt»m..li

THE.DETRACTOR
'He workS in the dark. God'a lun-
ahine never penetrates the atmosphere
of bis machinations. He shuns the
light with aa much aversion aa a White
Slaver ihuni publicity.
"He feed! prejudice, nurture! jealousy and breathei poison Into the can
of the unthinking and gullible. From
Us depraved mind emanates the slander that slurs the motive and lean
the Krai of thoie who ire endeavoring
to make the world better. Hla warped
mental apparatus preclude! broadneu
and makes him meuure othen by hla
own standard. Suspicion hatchea ln
hla cerebral cavity Uke files on a acav-
engerdump.
''He rendi the home, obliterate! affection, and roba tbe child of parental
love—lta natural heritage. Through
hli treacherous slander Impulsive men
take the gun route and weak women
flnd solace In carbolic He resurrects
the corpse of yesterday and hurla It
into the path of tomorrow. Devoid
of conidence, he emails character.u
ruthlessly as a holdup man roba hla
victim. . '--
"He Infests every group, of society.
Honor end truth are word! foreign to
hli'vocabulary. No woman la true to
her truit or man decent, acording to
hia dlitorted Imagination. In garden
of roses he aeea only the thorns and
traniformi It Into a thlstle.path.
"In a labor union hli prey ii the
earnest men who are active In the
cause. No officer li honest tn the mind
of tbe detractor; no motive good. Graft
la his whisper to the Inexperienced,
and graft is re-echoed with mechanical
nreclslon from mouths governed by
phonographic cranlumi."
The. above portrait of the detractor
ti couched In. strong and vigorous
language, adda the Mlnen' Magaiine,
and yet, the language und ii reason'
ably mild when applied to the soulless
creature who ooolly and deliberately
conspire! to wreck the character.of
another. The detractor doea not know
the meaning of the word honor and
never felt the illghteit rennet for
truth. The detractor to conicienoelesi
and bu no character that can be Injured. The detractor la the foulest
and moit debauched creature In human ihape, and when dlicovered as the
unclean thing that ha la, ihould be
shunned aa a leper.

■ It waa unfortunate that Truitee
Mn. Gllley left tbe meeting before
the vote wu taken. Although her
statement to the Columbian should
be emln.ntly satisfactory, yet there
w(U, no doubt, arise many "doubting

Another cut In wagu is reported

oaly the strongest wesson we have at
our command, but it is also* method
of neaoe. accomplishing lta phrpoee ot

evolution it should be especially ao-
centable to the public who lu the near

In buUdlag iip the power of union
label purchases we need the aalat-
ance of everyfriend and ally wa can
gaUbt among the general pubtte, and
tMa is the issue, mora thsn' any and all
others, on which we wish to reach, ths
sympathies of ..the publlo mind. If
they, dislike the' quarrelsome way-
settling labor dispute! we muat secure tbelr asslatanee in support of tba
peaceful way—the union label way.
We ean reach the public by sdv*itb>
lag methods, continually calling (halt
attention to the advantegea to the
community of fredoaa (rom induitrlal
disputes; by showing the amount of
money paid la wage*, jn union Indus-
tries—a matter of vtts.1 luterStt to
merchants snd professions! maBr-and
by circular literature and naaraghper

most carefully prepared.
We can reach the publlo by aoaatant
agitation work hy unlona and by som-
mltteea calling upon retail merahaats,
obtaining audlenoea with religious or
fraternal maaHngs auad .uUlialBg' newspaper reports ot labor meetings to a
greater extent than heretofore. As the
constant dropping of water will war
away a stone, so wtll the odastant
mention of union label affairs In the
newspapers aet merehaata to thinking
of handling goods that the people
want,■■"'-' .-   ' ■
y'.ft is' eaay to conceive an agltatloa
ean be stroag enough—that la, with
sincerity and persistence behind It on
tbe part of all the members—so that
mere mention In the morning papera
tbat auch a union had endorsed union
label..bate'and had appointed a committee to aee whst proportion of nonunion hats wae sold In the town would'
be equivalent to serving notice on the
retail batters to stop handling nonunion bats and to handle union label
bats exclusively. The aame would apply to all other commodities, and after
a tlme_th»t portion of the public
friendly, to us would tak* such notice
aa a friendly tip tor their cooperation
In our behalf and retailers in all lines
would consider that their business
aafety depended on having In stock
the union label good! demanded by
union members, and hy friends of unions among the general pubtte.
Thla word picture la not overdrawn
at all, but it may exaggerate the pres-
ent loyalty of many unloa members to
tbelr own cauae—to themselves. If
thie ia true It is our greatest hindrance
to obtaining the asststattCe of the gen-
erabl public. Nothing can disgust a

a trade union wlU not be true to It he
cannot expect non-members to uphold

true to himself he cannot expect a non-
