T. Eiohardson, M. P., fells How
It Became a Potent Power
ta Psrluunsnt.
Old Age Psnslons and Several
Other Reforms Promissd Thirty
Years Ago by Both Parties.
Around 500 people greeted Thomaa
.. Rlehardion, M.P. tor Whitehaven,
Cumberland, In the Brltlih Home of
Common!, on Monday evening at the
Labor Temple. The subject ot hts address was "The Record of the British
Labor Party." The speaker spoke
strongly against what he claimed to be icIentlflcSUy-organtted capital. Mr. Rlehardion bandied hli iub-
Ject ln a maiterly manner and hli remark! were well punctuated with ap-
plauie. At the cloie of his addreu
he anawered numeroue queitlom
catch and otherwise propounded by
Socialists and .othen to the Satisfaction of the meeting.
In the audience were noticeable
Hon. Joseph Martin, K,c, M.P., a
colleague of Mr. Rlehardion ln the
Houie, aa well is a large number of
ladlei, tome of the Utter put queitlom regarding women's luffrage.
J. H, McVety made a capital ohalr-
man. In Introducing the speaker of
the evening, he laid that the labor
v:) member would addreu. the meeting
under the auspices of the tradei and
Labor Council.    '
Mr. Richardson ln prefacing hli remark! laid that It would be unwise
and unatateiman-llke to attempt to
doraatize as to the policy which
labor persued ln this country for the
betterment of Its elan ae a whole. In
Great Britain there wai an older civil-
Itatlon, but the problem! of lndui-
trlallim j Snd capitalism there alao
affected tbe people In thli great Dominion. Up to. the year 1906 tradea
unlonlim In the old country had been
Divided Into two Camps
namely, the liberal and tory partlea
and yet were itrongly organised In
the staple Industries of the country.
There were over 1,000,000 workeri In
t,,e mines of Oreat Britain, 90 per
eent of "whom were memben of the
union. What wai true In thli respect
equally applied to the other trades.
When Indepedent labor party movement-made up Its mind to become a
power, It realised. that it must link
up labor with the Socialists. This
flght wu a itrenuoui one, It wai
held that unloni never could afford to
go Into politic!. What was tbe hard-
est thing to get wat a wllllngneii to
discuss the political movement. The
Independent lsbor party wu dlitlna
tlvely tradei unionism. But thanks to
the great work of Mr, Keir Hardle,
Ramiay Macdonald Hyndman, Snow-
den and othen were due to the propaganda work which reiulted ln 1906
ln a new political movement—the
composition of a political labor party.
The Brltlih Labor party comprliei
the element! of (1) tradei unloni, (I)
Soclalliti, (8) cooperatives, (4) tbe
women's labor league—thus were comprised four ''separate activltlei. In
1906 there were 39 Independent labor
men returned to the British Houie of
Commoni. ln 1906-7-8 the labor party
tn Britain wai very active and became
a potent power ln politic!. The tradei
unloni previously had been legalised
by parliament for 60 yeara and their
funds could not be injuneted. How.
ever, the Tall Vale' Judsment waa rendered and It wat a serious decision.
It meant that tradea union fundi muit
not be uied tor politic!. Thli coit
•' labor lome £180,000. The labor party
demanded a complete revenal ot thli
Judgment. If It were allowed to
■tend trades unloni would have been
robbed of their power and prestige.

NANAIMO, Oct 13.—If there IS one
word of the English language which
prevailing condltlona has brought Into
due prominence In and around Nanalmo for this laat year, that word li
"Juitlce." It slips eailly out from
between the Upi and juit aa free and
eaay seems to be the effort of the av-
erage mind In Its endeavor to get a
clear conception ot thli Important
"I want 'Justice' and I will have lt;
If not here, some where else!" dramatically exclaimed a certain Individual
when brought up and charged with a
misdemeanor in one of those places
where the British brand of tbls ethereal commodity la dispensed.
"We muit treat you all alike, no discrimination!" squeaks Old Simpson,
whose Ideal ln general, and particularly hli conception of "Juitlce," are
peculiarly hie. own, colored no doubt
by certain untelepathlc suggestions
trom across the table, which probably
bave their source in and around the
region of Jamei Bay, where tbe Emperor reildei and presides over the
meal tickets of those delectable gentlemen whose sole function seems to
be to incessantly disturb the air with
their chin music.
On Monday morning tin men from
Soujth Wellington were brought' up
for trial Quite, a number of tbelr
frlendi were upon the icene to tee
"Justice" put Into effect md Mr. Juitlce Howay, looking item and severe,
seemed by ill appearances to be ready
to perform the operation. But It was
found that a technical sprag had-got
between the spokes of the driving
wheel of Justice, which threw the
machinery of-the same out of gear:
The aprag, by the way, was the absence ot the Clerk of the Peace, who
waa attending the wedding ot hla ion
at Victoria.
After much legal' argument was Indulged in by the learned counsel, His
lordship adjourned the court for about
30 mlnutei to allow counsel to confer
ai to fixing dates for the varioui
casea coming up for trial and to con-
elder the question raised by the absence of the clerk.
On ere-assembllng tt wae made
known to all that the law required the
lubricating presence of the Clerk of
the Peace to ensure the smooth working' of that ponderous machine, British Justice,
lawyer Lelghton asked that ball be
granted In the case of Oeorge Petti-
grow, whose alleged offence Involved
a maximum penalty of three months.
Crown Proseoutlng Attorney Taylor
opposed the application of bill for Pettigrew on varioui reaaona. Alio "That
he li a prominent official of the U. M
W.^of A.," said the crown proiecutor.
"telle ln the other direction, from that
suggested by my learned friend, Mr.
Lelghton, and Ii a good reason for
refining ball in thli cue."
- If Pettigrew and othen with him,
who were arretted on September. 8th,
•hould have te go for Jury trial, they
will have lerved by tbat time a period
nearly equivalent to what the punishment of the alleged crime would be.
If after trial they are found "Not
guilty," will the pleasure of being legally and officially declared Innocent
balance In the favor ot British Juitlce
thit punishes before lt convicts, mike
the Innocent endure the torturei designed for the criminal? But the
criminal, It ihould be laid for the
crlmlnil tn these labor troubles, tr
British Justice, and it today itandi
convicted before the bar of reuon, It
ii not legilly ind officially found
Guilty, but lt li guilty all tbe eame, yet
It cin perpetrate lti crime from day
to day, and wbo may say It   Dare!
On Tueidiy the men from South
Wellington who hid elected for ipeedy
trial were again-brought before Justice
Howay on the charge of rioting at
South Wellington. Juitlce decreed
that the ipeedy Mali be overruled
md the prlioneri were remanded for
Jury trlall, ind In addition to the original charge of rioting were added new
chargei, namely, rlotoui destruction
of tho Padfli' Coal Co.'i ihed, similar
destruction of the house of James
Cromp, unlawful aiiembly, and leitly
Intimidation. Thii coune of ictlon
li taken ln order to facilitate "Juitlce,"  Ball wai refuied In.every caie.
It would took aa If the anttci of
Bowser's "meal ticket" agenti are fast
developing Into a farce, were It not tor
the fact that iome two hundred mine
workeri ire Incarcerated ind treated
as the vilest of criminals. By the
light of experience we are beginning
to learn something about the nsture of
Justice. Justice doei not alwayi
loothe, It alio wounda, burni, Irritates,
kill! sociability and creates conflict.
A rose would smell ss sweet with uy
other name. The name ss a thing ln
Itself Is nothing, only that tt Is the
advertisement of sn Idea, which again
li the mental picture of a living pro-
ceil, The term "Juitlce" is used today both by the master clan and the
workeri, both ire Inclined to look
upon It aa something "good." Why?
Beciuie it li to their Interests to do
so. The mine worken wish to organ-
lie Into en International' union and
they think that right now s continual
round of work, est, and sleep Is not
living, It li exlitence, animal at that.
Life   holdi   aomethlng   better   and
nobler. They hut voice the aaplra-
tiom of their clan when they arrive
for better working condition!, lets
houra, more wages, and they think it
just and right that they ahould have
auch thing!. But nothing ii ever got
without lighting tbr It, and to get that
which addi. up the eum ot life, the
mine worken have organized.
But what about tbe other aide? To
them organisation on the part of the
mine workera la bad, It meana they
will have to obey the "Mlnei Regulation!' Act" which meana more working expenses ud that means less
Organisation of the mine worken
means to them that the miner "must"
have a ny In the condition! under
which he hai to earn hli dally breid,
muit bave leu houn and more pay.
And all' that meana to the Coal Bar-
oni lesi profit!, consequently tbey
think that li wrong, lt li neither good
nor right ud became their Interests
are affected they will fight'with all
their itrength to combat and luccesi-
fully deetroy the organization of tbe
workeri. To aid the Maater Clan all
the powers of government, mllltla, police, Judges, uncloaked scab pettifog-
on, will go to the full limit, ai far ai
brutality la concerned, for theie people have no respect for their own manhood or anything tending toward! hu-
an progreu, except the respect they
ihow to each other, the standard of
which ll measured by the size ot the
meal tickets they receive tor performing the dirty Work for their economic
Here, between the Coal Barons and
the mine worken, Is a conflict of material Interests, two separate intereiti,
from which spring two separate cob'
ceptloni of what li right ud wrong,
juit and unjuit. Each right la backed
by might md the right that ii the
mightiest, that hu the modem methods of clan warfare well In hand, will
be the right that will win. The name
"Britlah Juitlce" li but a cloak to
the moat deteitable form of slavery,
Inequality, exploitation, that hue ever
disgraced thli planet and reverence
for the aame ll ai revolting to the
mentality ot a thinking person as
would the thought, of making a breakfast from the vomit of a dog.
The conception ot Justice that the
workera have emanate! from a deep
social need, a burning deilre, an energetic will for aomethlng other than
the exlitlng . "Power" alone can supply that need, can satisfy that deilre.
An energetic will, guided by Intelligent organized Power, can alone
change exlitlng tyranny to economic
freedom. Power for the workera
maul Juitlce tor the workera. Oppression but strengthen! our "Solidarity," that aione will', give us Juitlce
or Power.
VICTORIA, Oct. 14.—The unemployed question Is Juit beginning to
come to life again now that the winter ts coming on. Vancouver hu been
complaining for the lut tew yean;
thli year we will be on the same slate,
waiting for something to turn up ao
that we will be able to buy a loaf of
bread.    .
The city official! claim that tbe city
ti ln i flourishing condition md that
they will not need any bread line or
soup kltcheni. But how ihould they
know? They have a position whether
they work or not and mostly not work,
ai, you will notice' that one man has
been fifed three tlmei thli lummer
for doing nothing, but wu taken back
became he had not lived a few hundred thousand (poor devil). In the
building line alone at this time of
the) year, when every penon ihould
be working, not two-thlrdi are work-
', What will It be like a months
from now?
VICTORIA, Oct. 16.—About four
yean ago the\ Sheet Metal Workeri
of Vancouver started an evening class
for the young boys. After proving to
the employers that it wss a great mc-
ceu, we itarted after the public
school board to take It over. Afters
little, energy on the part of the union,
theg* enticed the ichool board to try
one ieaion of lt, and now lt IS one
of the regular claues.
Lut iprlng Victoria took up the
ume queitlon and after a little work
on our part we have lucceeded ln
getting the school board.ot thli city
to put on a sheet metal clan. We hope
It will be juit u big a success u Vanoouver hu turned out.
Now I think If the other tradei
would try ud do the aame, instead
of fighting one another; there would
not be aa much trouble In- getting a
raise In wages ai there li at the preient time, ai the employen' wall ot
"Some men are not worth lt" would
be backed off the boards. The Federation end local council! of thli province have tried, but we mcceed.   C.

first Party Landed at Cumberland and Mads Prisoners by
Bowser's Bpeoials.
Second  Party  Returning Home
Broke and Hungry, After Being Cruelly Deceived.
During the past week an echo
of thi stirring event! whloh took
place In thi local labor world
aome monthi ego, upon arrival ef
wme eighty minera from Durham,
England, le heard by the publication In the Newceetle-on-Tyne
Evening Mall, among othtr Old
Country exchanges, of an Intereit-
Ing (tory told by aome ot the deluded vlotlmt, of B. C. Mil baront,
upon their arrival -home.
Inasmuch aa the atory hu still
much ilgnlflcuce locally, ai evidencing the lengths to which the coal compute! are prepared to go to defeat
the right of mu to organise on Vucouver Island, tha atory in the Hall li
Eerewtth reproduced ln lte entirety:
The narrative! of three Durham
mlnen who returned to their homee
from Vucouver on Saturday," uyi
the MaU, "places a very serious complexion on the emigration ot parties
ot mlnen from the northern county to
Vancouver ln April and May last
In brief, the position, as represented
by them, Is that two parties of miners
from tbe Durham coalfield were organized to emigrate to the Vancouver
Island coal centre!, on the undemanding that the compute! desired British
labor, ln pretence to Chinese, When
they arrived In Canada they diicov-
ered thlt the mlnen of Vanoouver
were on itrlke, and that they had been
brought over to blackleg.
The flnt party, numbering about 10,
were, tt la stated, taken to the Islud
before they were made aware of the
iltuatlon, and when there were not
allowed to leave, being guarded by
■pedal police. The second party,
which sailed a month later, were
acquainted with the exaot poiltlon of
affaln on the tiland before they left
the mainland, ud Immediately refuied to commence work ln the
affected area. The union, whoee
officials had with great difficulty succeeded tn acquainting the; new arrival!
of the true poiltlon before tbey were
embarked for tbe Island, did all lt poa-
albly could to flnd work elsewhere for
the stranded men.
In a few Instance! thli wu achieved
'■■ut the majority were thrown on their
own resources, and are now, it il
averred, tramping the country, destitute ud itarvlng.
It li clear, from careful enqulrlei
made by an Evening Mall representative, that the offers made to minera to
join the partiei were attractive.
The expense! of the journey to the
Cumberland mine on Vaicouver Island
were paid by the agent of their prospective employer on the undentand-
Ing that the'money was paid back at
the rate of 30a per month.
The majority of the men who sailed,
as they thought, to fortune and pros
nerlty, left wives and families behind
them, and those who were single had
aged mothen and father! dependent
upon them.
They promised to send home money
for the upkeep of tha home u soon, as
they were settled, but instead of remittances the dependents received letters telling of destitution, ud in
muy cases atarvatlon.
Wanted Brltlih Libor.
It will be recalled that when Mr,
Ralph Thompson, ot Annfleld Plain,
who helped to organise the emigrant!,
wai approached for an explanation
of thli, he itated that he knew nothing
of any atrlke or blacklegglng, adding
that those Who engaged the men gave
an undertaking that ln the event of
any atrlke or trouble ot uy kind on
i 'alalia the men took out would be
given their return to Annfleld Plain.
The three men who have returned
are Robert Slater, single, of > Kyo
lane, Annfleld Plain; Robert Elliott,
married, a brother-in-law of Slater,
who at preient also llvei at I Kyo
lane; and Jack Heilop, single, ot
Thornley, near Durham, The two
former went out with tbe second
batch, and Heilop with the flnt
Slater and Elliott were interviewed
yesterday, and both denied- thlt the
strike wae mentioned when the party
wai being organized. They were told
that thu ownen ot the Vancouver
'aland mlnei were- uxloui to lecure
Brltlih labor, and thli, they itate, wai
advanced aa the sole reaion why auch
handsome wagea were- offered, and
why the mineowners were,, prepared
lend the expenies of the Journey
Most remarkable of all la the itate-
second party, numbering sixty-one,
ment that while on the ocean.the
were called together ny an agent, who
reed but wlrelen messages purporting
to come from Vancouver Island, end
expressing the satisfaction, bf the
twenty men who had sailed from Dur-1
ham a month before.
"Several of these message! were!
•oad out," uld Slater, "and lh eaoh
the men who- had preceded ui were
represented- as having expressed the
greatest satisfaction with the conditions op the Inland,
"Then, again, when we were travelling across Canada copies of a Vancouver paper were placed on the seat!
In.the carriage!. They contained report! sbout the prosperity of the Vancouver mines.

until we landed on'the Island, had
the union officials not boarded our
train and Informed ui.
"They hid conilderable difficulty In
doing this, tor thou who were In
charge ot us msde evety effort, end
even resorted to force, to keep the
union men away from us,    «•'•'-
"As loon u we knew of the strike
we held a meeting, ud decided not
to commence work on the Island.
'The union unt us out to other
ncalltiea la the hope of getting work
for us, bnt the mlne-ownen who hsd
brought ui out wired to colliery own-
era all over the country asking them
not to give ui work, ud only very
few lucceeded In obtaining Jobs, It
waa nearly ilx week! before uy of
ub got anything to do.
Moit of than soon found themselves without a penny in their pock-
eta, ud the union, ficed with the
heavy expenie, of the itrlke,, could
give ui no financial assistance,
though lt did everything ln Its power
to find ns Jobs."
Slater md Elliott succeeded, with
considerable difficulty, ln obtaining
work In a mine at Fernle, ud that
was how they went able to save
money to pay their passage home.
Shortly after their arrival ln Canada,
they stated, they discovered that the
flrat party had been taken to the
Island, and were kept there in what
practically amounted to captivity.
Heslop, who returned with them on
Saturday, escaped In the dead of
night ud wu met by the other men
on the homeward bound boat at Montreal.
The majority of the remainder ot
the aecond party are Mattered about
the country trying to obtain a living.
Many of them were ln ragi when lut
heard of, and one, mother brother-ln-
'aw of Slater, travelled 1,000 miles
acrou country riding underneath railway carriage!.
Muy of the men who were shipped
had endeevored ln vain to und letters
home, uld Slater, who declared that
every letter received In, or despatched
from, the Iiland waa opened by the
mine official!.

as the association. Th'e Labor Temple also derives revenue from a cigar named the Labor Temple cigar, and
made by'Zeoh Cigar company, which pays a royalty on every one sold. The association also gives dances every
Saturday night, the revenue of which goes to the Labor Temple, From every source possible the .treasury receives
gain, and consequently th'e Labor Temple association is entirely self-supporting.
Comparatively'few union working-
men realize how much propaganda for
the union label can often be done In
everyday life, if they will but keep
thla taet eonitantly ln mind, and avail
themielvei of every favorable opportunity. .  •
Of coune, it Is an essential prerequisite that aa good and true union-
lite they eubordlnate selfish Interest!
to thoie of union principle!, which ii
the only true test of good unlonlim;
they muit alio use all honorable wayi
md means to. strengthen their trade
organisation!, which, when Intelligently directed, are bound to promote
their material welfare.
It, therefore, behooves trade unionist! to let a good example to the
public at large and patronise only
union label product!,'for by doing so
they help their-fellow unionists In
other trades, which in turn enable!
all union laborers of all trades to help
themselveB to still better condition!.
Aad It li a well eitabliihed principle, borne out by facta ln history,
that only thoie ever have lucceeded,
or ever can Succeed, who by lelf-
•acrlfice, perseverance and devotion,
have -personally applied their beat
efforts toward! anything they have undertaken to accomplish, says the
Baker's Journal,     '
Thli li eipeclally true and beat- Illustrated ln such caiea which find
their origin and are baaed upon truth
and Juitlce, and where principle! of
human welfare are Involved,
And lt ia by thli time an Indisputable fact that unionism, ln the truest
and best sense, Is bated upon and
doei stand tor true juitlce .and humanity; and anything, therefore,
which strengthen! and promote! the
cause of trade unionism is bound to
further the best Interests of the whole
human race,'
Trades unloniiti ihould graip every
opportunity and use all honorable
methods to educate the public upon
thli lubieot ot union label product!.
Many people who at the preient
time are entirely indifferent ln regard
to unlonlim and the union label, would
undoubtedly, become Intereited lym.-
pathliere and patronise fair products,
provided ihe subject. Is properly
brought to their attention anil otherwise, well-informed persons, whose
knowledge of trade facts and personal
We often meet some well-meaning
and otherwise well-informed persons,
whose knowledge ot trade unlonlim
and union principle! waa derived from
the column! of the dally preu, and,
as csn readily be aiiumed, they were
misinformed In regard to and prejudiced agalmt everything pertaining to
labor unions,
. But after explaining to them the
true meaning of unlonlim, giving
good reasons why tt li abiolutely nee-
eiiary, and what It really means and
Standi for, people are willing to admit the Juitlce of lti claims and the
Injuitlce of thoie who slander and
misrepresent lt,   -
Generally apeaklng, after people become convinced of the true meaning
of the labor union and what lt Implies
they do noUhesltate to lend their aid
and assistance, either by patronising
union-made product!, or by giving
moral rapport
But lt feinafns for the Individual
memben of unions to "take up the
union man's burden" and practice
what they preach, thus showing to the
public that unionism le a living reality and the union label an "emblem
of fairness."
When you buy, say, a suit of clothes,
you must, of course, as a practical
union man, by It in an establishment
which employs union help and deals
ln union-label products.
Let your clothier know—and In no
whispering tone, but that he who is
within the hearing ot your voice may
alio hear it—that you buy from him
becauee he employe union help ana
deal! tn union-label goods.
Of course, we all know what thit
This rule also holds good when you
need a hat, or a pair of shoes, or anything else you may deilre and—be
able to pay for.
Never forget to ask for the. union
label, even when that particular trade
which makea a certa|p article you
may want, Is not organlted and, has
no label. **   - .

All formi of organisation muit have
men that take hold ef the work- to
advance lti Interests. In the trade-
union movement, more than In any
other, the more active men lt haa the
better it will be equipped to perform
the work for whieh it la organlied.
If It Were not for the agitator, the
organiser, the man that takei hold of
things, very lltle progress would be
made.. - So within our unions'we muit
develop agltaton. It la the primer
ichool of the working man; for within
that organisation he oomei In eon-
tact with men, each giving hli vlewi

the itrugglei of life.
He comes face to face with the fact
of hla and other men's surroundings,
the hardships that he and hie elm
muit endure, end he look! on the
other side, at the tew whole life ll
that, ot a paraiite, living from tbe
product! the worken produce.
He begins to reason wh thli great
contrait between emploer and employee, the cause and the remedy.
Moit of the memben of the labor
union, aa If by instinct, know tbat
they must organise, hut they have not
fixed In their mlnde clearly the real
causes and remedy.
For the labor unions to become
strong and powerful every member
muit be taught the real principle! ot
organlied libor, they muit be taught
how capltaliat! have developed and
what holde them in their position,
what the cause and remedy la to right
and wrong! and what tendency the
labor union hai toward! all of theie,
Thli can only be obtained by education of the rank and file. One of
the most effective meani to enlighten our memben li to Invite ipeaken
to address them at leaat once a month.
Through the, coune of a ipeaker'i remark! many point! will be accepted
and knowledge thereby enhanced,
Again, lome literature on the Labor
movement ihould be distributed and
above all thing! Labor papen and
booki ihould be read. When the rink
and file read more and think more for
themielvei, they will have a mind of
their own and will not be led around

"Five million tone of salmon
could have Seen caught and harvested on this coast during the
put month ot August If there had
been fishermen here to catch them
and hands to dress and cure them.
There are a million acres on Lulu
Island and ln the Delta of the
Fraser River, ai rich and aa fruitful ii the finest farm land! of
Italy, France or Ireland, Field!
thlt could produce delicious milk
and butter, and fruit and vegetable!, and beef and pork and mutton and poultry, to feed more than
a million people; but these very
fields, spread before the eyei of
tbe dwelleri on Shaughneiiy
Heights, are now lying Idle in the
■un, while Mr. HIU'i railway! are
buiy hauling vegetable! and ftult
and milk and butter from the
United Statei to feed the people
ot thli elty. Shipload! of butter,
beef and mutton are coming to
* thli city from Australia, and carload! of pork products from Alberta, and eggg and poultry from
Quebec, simply because there ire
not lufflclent farmer! here to reclaim and cultivate the richest
(arm land! beneath the canopy of
; beayen."
The foregoing la an excerpt from
in extended article, written by P. A.
OTarrell and printed ln Reynold'!
Newipaper (September SSth). It la
very misleading, and workingmen and
people with limited means ihould- be
wary ln giving credence to glittering
generalities, such ai referred to above,
called facta.   Lulu aad Sea islands
contain flat, low prairie land and
comprise about 28,800 acres. A large
amount of expensive drainage Is needed. These lilandi are nearly all owned by speculators who.ask anywhere
from SE00 to 12,000 an acre. The Delta
country comprlaes 196,895 acrei, all
of which li practically tied up by
land ipeculatora and held for fancy
prlcea. Some of tbls land la good; hut
It will coit about 1600 an acre to clear
and Improve lt .The government hold
out llrat-cnU|i inducements to the speculator!, but to real bona-fide lettlere
with limited meant, there are really
no opportunities to. procure land at
reasonable prlcea within 200 mllei of
Vanoouver and none whatever for preemption within 60 miles of a proposed
line ot railroad. The ipeculaton own
lt all. A splendid foundation bu been
laid for a landlordism that In yean to
come will proye aa tyrranlcal aa any
on the continent of Europe.
The salmon fisheries are' controlled
by a combine who own the canneries,
the nets,, the boat! and all general
•uppllei. There are a very few white
jflshjermen taking salmon nowadays.
The Mongolians are the pete of the
canneri. Nearly every year during
the ulmon ieaion the combine "bear"
the price of flih, wltb tbe reeult that
a strike take! place, - That wai the
re.ason why more flih were not-caught
last ieaion.

The political organisation of women
and the organisation of women into

not be hopebMily exploited.
By oiganlilng for collective action
industrially, women are learning the
value of unity. They learn how to
tranuct buiineu, how to vote In their

A very lucceitful parlpr meeting
wu held on the ltthV at the house of
Mm. Thompson, Thirteenth avenue.
Over forty.persons were preient, including liveral converti. A record
collection gave oheerlng proolUif their
enthullum for the cauie.
Before the forty-sixth annual trades
congreu, held at the Milton hall, Manchester, recently, the preildent of the
oongreu, after referring' to  several
other reformi, Said:      ::-.**;
!Theie reformi, together with
the adoption of the great principle
or the granting of tbe franchise
to every man and woman, is well
si a well balanced redlilrlbutton
of leati would make tor a healthy
electoral system."
In regard to another reform very
near  to  woman's  heart,  universal
peace, Mr. Davli proceeded:
',- "international.peace and amity
could be secured Only by deter
mined and penlitent efforti. The
gain to every nation would b*
enormoui if backboned itateimen
were to uie their powerful influences to prevent ambition trom
sacrlflclng humanity for mere tectorial gain or to satiate monarch.-
cal-gned. The cost of armaments:
devoured tbe profit! of the. husbandry of the world. ,
"Unfortunately It was true that
Imaginary national Interests and
prejudice! In tlmei bf freniy were
apt to upset any alliance brought
about by good wIlL The world'!
great effort ihould be to- create
peace and good will on earth,

- Attempts tb reform then, lawi have
again and again been made, but have
alwaya failed, and muit Inevitably fall
10 long as women have no representation In the legislature.
Woman's Work,
The American delegates to tbe Budapest suffrage congress who travelled
across Germany In the special train
labelled "Frauonstlmmrecht" wondered whether the, Kalier knew, what the
women of hli country were doing.
They certainly were paying no heed to
hli dictum that the only place for women li in the church; the kitchen or
the nunery. In the country they were
making roads, loading hay,and doing
every possible kind of farm work with
not a man tn sight, while ln the cities
they loaded baggage, cleaned the
streets and did every tort of heavy
work. Nine'million German women
ara laid to be earning a living for
themielvei and famlllee In.order that
the vaat army aad navy may be maintained. Thli year the. Emperor hai
drewn 800,000 additional''men from
lnduitry to war. Their work muit.
therefore be done by women.'

LADYSMITH, V. I.. Oct. 6,-Through
out ell the world the principal endeavor of men li to mske a living—to get
those thing! which sre absolutely necessary to life In most cues, to secure
those which add to lti comforts Jn
othen. Why, then, are theie men
Idler -Ii there a point where the human heart ll satisfied with whit lt
hu obtained? IS there a limit to the
deilre for the good thing* of lite? If
there ii, no one hss yet discovered It,
Why, then,' do they continue to exist
on four dollar! per week for the mm,
two for the wife and a dollar each for
the children? Do they like to ue how
far they can make a dollar go In theie
dayi of the soaring cost of living?' To
me it Is a tragedy carefully concealed,
to see the young ones going to school
or playing about the itreet! In a plain
attempt at decency snd neatneii In
the matter of apparel,
For over a year the men of thli
town and othen In the coal district of
Vancouver Island have been out of the
grind which represents the worken'
part of the struggle for existence. For
over a year their fellowa ln other
camps have supported there. It Is a
problem of unusual intereit and well
worthy of consideration. What ll this
strike?- i
In tbe first place it is a struggle, or
a part of a struggle. The entire lite
of the workers of the world li a struggle—a struggle tor the* necessaries of
life. But thli li not exactly that Strug-
gle, nor ie It altogether what most people believe tt to be—a struggle for
more of the necessaries and a tew of
the conveniences of life; nor for a
lessening ot the- dangera and dlicom-
forts with which thli branch of lnduitry li particularly laden. Yet thli Is
what the men themielvei, who ire engaged In It, believe It to be. Theie
thing! the manager of one large compsny (The Weitern Kiel Co.) li willing to concede to the men to avoid giving them the real point-of issue. '
In reality It la a struggle tor dominion. In whst are perhapa the old-
eat human records that have come
down to ua, md which give a detailed
account of the origin of mankind, the
word Int appeara In the specifications
when these md tha plans of the creation of mankind were flnt gotten out.
It reads: "And God laid, 'Let ui mske
nun, In our Image, after our Ukeneii;
end lit thim have.dominion,'"
Dominion Is an essential character
of mankind as a whole. But. in the
esse of the individual lt seems to be
alienable; md In the case or cues of
the majority of Individuals It Is alien
ated. If this essential quality of mas
be loit, itrayed or stolen, he does not
necessarily cease to live or to be a
man, because the distinctive character-
title of mmklnd Is fallibility. The
man has, however, under theae circumstances lost his "manhood," using the
word In the larger tense, and' hu become a alive. He hai lost hit like-
nesi to Ood, as lord of creation, and
creator and matter of hli envlrom.
He hu taken on the Ukeneii of "the
ox and the an, which have no understanding," with no asy as to, and, per
haps, lubjeot to hli envlrom. Subjection li the penalty for the loss of do-
But man's Ant orders are to replenish the earth and subdue tt He wu
given to have dominion "over the flsh
ot the sou, Over the -fowl of the air,
and over the cattle—and over everything that creepeth upon the earth."
Mankind wSs dlctlsctly left out of the
list But tf mankind haa lost his'manhood and became as the cattle, and
the thing that creepeth upon the face
at the .earth, Instead of Its owner and
muter, then dominion.muit be over
him ai well.

only v/ey they can make uie of them.:.
And the latter- work. Tou bet your life ■
they work! If.there is one thing more,
than all othen whloh thli Jitter class:
of creaturee deilre to do, lt Ii to work,
for tbelr masters. < It Is the only way I
they know anything about of obtain-1
ing the neceeiarlei of life. And they I
never dreem tbat these could possibly I
be obtained ln any other way. This.
muter and servant construction of society le the credence of the world af"

time "when darkness covered the face'
of the earth and gross darkness the
people," and will endure white that'
period'laeti-r-no longer,    * -P
-This.etrlke, then, Is a itruggle—a
brave, duperate itruggle—but it it not
according to knowledge. If the working clan acted according to knowledge t
there would be no auch clan division
of loclety. Where there li knowledge
there can be no division. It is lmpos-
ilbli to disagree in wbat Is known.
Division or difference of opinion always Indicate! error, whioh ii limply
lack of knowledge,
n Agalmt whom do they itruggle?
Agalnat their maiten, rarely. But
then the matters must be struggling,
too? _ Well,, not io that you would notice It; masters do not itruggle, A
itruggle li in Indication of lack of
maitery. It li an excluilve privilege
of the toller. The mister! no more do
their own struggling than they make
their own shoes or watches, build their
own houses or plant their own potatoes, or shoot down, club or baronet
their awn enemies. What use ave the
useful portion of society, if not for
then thingi?
The working class it preient li a
home divided against Itself. What
hu kept theie men out over a year
li more men lust about as, good looking u themielvei, to all outward ip-
pearanoei, at any rate. The only certain difference Is that one la a more
perfect slave thin the other, the one
ll content to go to work with as much
iay in the matter ai had the Slave of
tbe Roman Empire. The other hu imbibed eome Of the spirit of a man.
What the former lick in spirit tbey

type with high powered rifles) .make
up In numben.
This strike, and other Btrikes—yon
can take your pick—the papera are full
of them—■are a certain symptom of unrest. In the more enlightened countries weehiye progressed too far to
thoroughly appreciate complete Subjection to the masters. Servitude is the
handmaid Of ignorance, and aa there
are different degrees of ignorance, io
muit there be degree! of servitude.
Complete lervitude is the condition of
the ox and the ass (unless we are wilt
Ing to except Balaam'a), and the more
nearly men reeemble theie the natter
they will endure servitude, lh the
more backward nitlvei, lendom ii
hardly yet out'of date. In some even
less enlightened countries, cbittel
•lavery still survives. ,But unless we
are wrong In auuming that knowledge

Dominion meani ownership, control of,

"you keep off," Up goei a fence, and

Meeting to Be Held on Oct. 24 to
Discuss Ways and Means of
Inoresiing Its Usefulness.
Owing to the prevalence of a "Brit-
lab Columbia mlit" Friday night's
meeting of the Lsbel League wu not
•0 well attended u wu expected.
Preildent C, F. Burkhart occupied the
chilr, while G. W. Curnock acted u
A. F. Wolfe, of tbe Brotherhood of
Railroad Carmen, reported that hli
union hid on hand some ISO coplei of

Department Thli wu owing to a
mistake of the American Federation
of Labor, who evidently mlitook "60"
tor "150.' The B. of R. R. C. only bu
about 50 memben, to upon motion,
the League agreed to take the other
100 off tbelr buds for distribution.
It wu, upon ruolutlon, ordered thit
the next meeting—Friday, October 84
—be tbe date tor deviling wayi and
meani of getting the alme and object! of the League before the general
public. Toll action wu neceuitated
by the small attendance. The lecretary wu ordered to again get Into
communication with the varioui
unloni, and uk them to elect delegate!, ind have them there at next
, There are a number of unlonliti in
thli city wbo are In earneat in thli
matter, and are. determined to mike
the Libel League a itrong factor for
tbe conaumptlon of union-made goods
of all kinds. It is a well-known fact
tbat a merchant lays in a stock of
goodi to sell—not to He on hli shelve!
and become ruity and dusty—and ifj
tbe unionist and hit frlendi Insist on
only label goods, the merchants of
thli city will very soon lay In a stock
and advertlie the fact ln The Fed.
An Informal discussion took place
upon tbe matter of getting the alma
and object! of the League before the
public of thli dty. Preildent Burkhart of the Barben, made an Interesting talk on the lubject, and told of
a like movement In Oakland, Cal.,
aome yun ago. It seems the League
tn the California city want to the man-
igement of a moving picture tbeatie,
and made a contract to sell ticketi
for. a certain day—11 to 11 performance—upon a percentage. They had
great lucceu ln the work, some department store.! even buying block!
of ticket! for distribution to cuitom>
en. Some employen bought enough
for sll their employeu. These tickets,

In addition to the regular performance, the varioui unloni put on
"itunti" between acti. Then at varioui tlmu a illde wu put on showing
a facsimile of the label of tbe varioui

legal—it was right—for memben ot
unions to contribute to funds for political purpoiei. In the main, working-
men had supported liberal policies. It
remained for a tory member to state
on the floor of the houn of commons
that union men have not only believed
that they had the right but In the
put enjoyed the privilege. A lot of
workingmen cling to their llberallim
u well ai to tbelr torylim, and thui
were not so well united as they might
have been on the question of union
funds for political purpoiei. When
the bill on tbe Osborne Judgment ume
up for dlicuision the "comclentloui
objecton" did their utmoit for lti de-
teat. When a bill la introduced lt goes
to a committee either upitaln or to
the whole houn. The labor party are
(entitled to nven memtleri on the
grand committee, and of coune, there
la considerable wire-pulling to get on
It. In committee Ramuy McDonald
and hli colleagues put up their fight
on that well'known bill on the Oiborne
Judgment and had an amendment to lt
carried hy one of a majority. Regarding political action versus trades union
action, ai a socialist he wanted to ny
that one of the.greatest movement!
In the world to help the toller wu
that of tradei unlonlim. He had no
sympathy with those who Advocated
democracy on lines to oppose lt The
great fljrbt of the future will be on the
floors of the houn of common! for
Conitnntlvi Reformi.
The ipeaker commented on the
great mlnen' itrlke of 1911,  Ai a io-
claliit more than a tradu unlonlit he
dumed that It wai a federation of all
unloni with a national policy tbat
won the battle, There li not i parallel
national itrlke to It In the history of
the world. After a itruggle of Ave
weeks It was ended. The heroism displayed by the women on that occulon
and that of the men IS well known.
(Applause.) The power of organised
capital to inflfct lti will on thou 1,000,..
000 mlnen muit be considered ud
reckoned with. There wu little In
common with Premier Aiquith ud
hlmielf md tbe labor party. Tbe premier ll the ctrongeit mis'In Brltlih

George, Churchill ud Orey held thit

wu aware that capltalltm knowi no
politics, but only profit! ud dividend!.
Strong u he wu on the floor of the
houie, he hid to take Into consideration that the lntereat! of mine operator! were not only confined to con-
•ervatlvei, but there were liberal coal-
owners as well. There will come a
time not only when the proflt ud dividend enslavement ot the toller must
cease, but tbe whole community u
well, pro rata as workera will be built
up. The road li a thorny one, and the
fight a Itrenuoui one. Both In the old
oountry ud the new the workeri cu
free themielvei from capltalltm. (Applause.) Under prennt condition!
there in alwayi three partlea to in
