- The figure-of Justtoe Is generally
featured u being blind and may often
be ooaeeded to be to addition both
deaf i and dumb. Bt th! cue of the
Vancouver UlanS mlnire, who -have
at but received trial aad sentence,
however, Juitlu would appur to have
had nothllg whatever, to do,
Tho proeecuttng attorney haa rem
tured the opinion that the priunsri
snd their relitivu were "SheekodT
at the untenoea. So Also pas every
other penon who hu followed this
affair wltb any degree ot Interut .
The very nature of some of the
chargu and the evidence tendered to
cases of both dlimluiU and convlo-
tloni hai been eloquent of the condition of penacutlon which li rampant
to that lection. Did nam one uy
. "Boot" Tton, to arreet every man In
light leemi to have been the poiloy,
aad-later puribly aome who were
aot than In light What It there were
some who uld nothing, they were
all mlnen anyhow, and Herodlan
method! ir% very Incluilve—alio ver>
.effective, -./i-i ;     ;
Herod wu an exponent ot martial
law, too, and a few Innocent victims
more, or leu -waa aa nothing when
meuured with an imperial will and
a determination that a putlbla element of danger to hla Intoreito wu
at all cute to be removed. I
The proucutlnt attorney ,1s credited with itatiag In aa Interview   at
Victoria that "Nothlnt could have had;
a more salutary effect upon'the itrlk-
Ing spirit ef the district thsn   toe:
sentences imposed."   We were   not*
euppoeed to be aware that the "itrlk-:
tog ipirlt of the dletrict" wu on trial,
and it la refreshing to have Mr. Shoe:
botham'i   admlulon.     Further   he,
adda:   "I ihall bo lurprlud Indeed If
' this action does hot lead Indirectly,
but none the leu certainly, to the
- dluolutloa of the foreu  of   agitation." Doei he wish ns to: undentand
that the lentoSue were Impeeed, aet
■ to,,mete out Juittoe Jtoc alleged of-
fencu. but to "dlewrte the foreu et
atttotloar It la all very Illuminating
*  or at least ought to be to these who
hat previously been unaware of the
1 reel Conditions at Nanalmo.   -;■'■'
In the ume Interview thli gentleman appears to pultlvely gloat Over
the "soeklnt" which hu been handed
out to theu cltliene who were divided
up and tentericed according to their
office and inppoud InSuence in the
ranks of the mlnen' union.
We are reminded of a recent decision of Judge Andenon at Indianapolis, when handing out the huvlest
penalty of all among a group dl iron-
worken to Mr. Frank Ryan, "be-
cauu he wu the pruldent of the
Bridge aad Structural Ironworker!'
Union." Not the queitlon apparently
of any degree of guilt, but of offlce
held. .
We lhall be very much urprlud
It the results hoped for and u fondly
dreamed of by«the prosecution will
result from then phenomena Juitlu may be blind, but there la in
Inherent urne of equity to be found
among people la the man whloh will
not be ebunt among theu mlnen,
who are not by any meant tbe type
ot men whom urtaln writen would
■eek to penuide the public. Being
moitly Englith and Scottish mlnen
with a fall knowledge of what condition! ought to pertain among Brltlih
subject*, the only result of persecution will be to itlSen whitever determination previously existed to
stand strong for Individual and collective righto.
It surely must he apparent that
-the. power to hand out "aalutary sentences!" the power to drag men,
without even the formality of a warrant, trom their homu at whatever
hour turned lettable by the mlnlom
of that "powey;" the power to enter
a peaceable meeting and declare every
member of that meeting to bp "under
ar rut;" the power to dissolve a muting of peaceable cltlieni; the power
to compel every member ot iuch
muting to walk a gauntlet of glittering ttul; the power, to, fact, to do
anything that uemeth right to the
eyei of that "power" li a powerful
evidence of a perverted condition of
thingi, which applied to men and
women of tho calibre ot theu In
Brltlih Columbia, or Indeed any other
Krt of the clvillied world today miy
temporarily "ihocklng" to the point
of paralyili, -but which will reset to
an extent, of which the' purblind ex
ponenti of thit power do not turn
to have any appreciation. The common acuptince of "Juitlce" never si-
soclatos the term with anything vindictive.
In the meantime there le every evidence that the whole affair it at-
trading more thin ordinary attention. People all over Canada are
watching and watting for the fint
evldenu of any real deilre to uttle
thli dlinute on any other termi than
thue of starvation and coercion, The
ministerial association of Reglna hu
had courage enough to exprtps Itself,
snd In endoraatlon of that move an
lntoreitlng letter appeara to the
Reglna Leader trom another mlnliter

According to Judge Howay, it is no longer a question of comMringKevxdence when strikers are tried
for "offences" against the rule of Bowser's friends,
the coal barons. It is a problem in mind reading.
The modern judge in B. C, must look wisely, from his
judicial pedesm, into ihe faces of the prisoners, and
't/ they fail to HOOK PENITENT and cowed to suit
the scab-herders, they must suffer the maximum punishment. Then if not quite satisfied from that angle
thereSs always the official position the prisoner holds
in his union with which to'adjudge the degree of
guilt. Presidents and secretaries get the limit, the
classification then leading down to a-sergeant-at-arms
and finally to the "member" of a union. Those put-
side the union go free; while the out and out scab is
boarded at the public expense in a Victoria restaurant.      ...  ,-■,..-'. •., ■'■   '•

So uld Mr. P. R. Olover, aulitant
general manager of the B, 0. Electric;
Railway, In reply to an Inspired question asked by one ot the members of
the Vancouver Board of Trade, at a
muting of that body held lut week
to lltten to the explanation of the B.C.
Electric regarding the lncreue ot
fafei and reduction ln the quality of
the car lervlce.
Ai Mr. Olover haa already admitted
to another body that', the Increase to
the mea employed ln this city amounts
to leal than 11000 per month, hla statement! can be aafely accepted es lndi-
eatlng the real motlvet underlying tha
preu notices given out by the com-
pany advising of the lncreue In fires,
snd by' Inference, at leut, making it
appear u though the enormous lncreue; grsnted the employees necessitated dm'chsnge
The .writer hsd already given .the

It U a matte/ of lurprtu to many,
particularly thou with experience Jn
countries where restrictive leglilatlon
Interferu with and hampers the worken who deilre to lncreue the idling
price of their commodity—labor power-that a quuf-publlc Utility corporation, ulllng traaiportatlon—a com-
modify—can lncreue the ulllng price
10 per unt, without notice and without governmental Interference or in-
vutlgation. -
Apparently there are no rutrictlom,
other .thin thou of supply snd demsnd, placid on the ownen .of any
commodity, u far as price li concerned, except on the workeri whose, uie
commodity li lsbor power of a perlsh-
abls nature. Labor power cannot be
stored for a higher .market—It muat
be ueed at once or lt la forever lut,
and anything that Interferu with the

About two monthi' time and thou-
undt of dollan were spent by the
Street Rillwiy Employui' Union In
complying with the foregoing uctloni,
only to And that the position of thl
men after the Investigation wu little
or no hitter than before the negotiation! opened. In the meantime, a "con-
■piracy of silence" regarding the negotiation! created tha Impression In
the mind of the average cltlten that
the employeu were holding up the
company. Condition! In the libor
market hid alio chanted, many worker! ln other lnduitriu being unemployed and a constant menace to thue
seeking to better their condition!. The
committee finally aooepted an agreement which leaves the ratea of wagu
practically where they were thru
yean ago for another two yean, although Mr. Olover admit! a very le-
rloui lncreue in the cut of living.
There are a lot of. people, principally among thou who are not affected, who laud the Industrial Dliputei
Act, better known to the worken u
the Lemon Act, to the ikiei, becauie,
as they uy, It prevent! itbppigei In
lnduitry and prevents the "dear public" from being Inconvenienced, . And
maybe they sre right, for it doei all
that Is clilmed for It. It takes the
employee three months to secure in
lncreue of lui thsn 11,000 per month,
spread over more than 1,000 men, snd
compels ths men to sill their labor
power st the old ratei ln the meantime.
How different Is the position of the
compiny. It givu one diy'i notice of
in lncreaae netting fifty times the
amount ucured by the men,'providing
Auguit Irene figures are uied, and
by the right of ownenhip, backed by
the itate, it refuui to sell except on
Its own terms.
The writer reoogalSte the Impossibility of securing the repeal of the
Dliputei Act, and the removal thereby
of the handicap! placed on the men,
and suggests as an alternate proposition that the act be ap amended u to
require an Investigation hy the ume
meant, of the attain of any corporation whou employui now come within the scope of the act, whenever an
attempt ll made to lncreue the Selling price of commodltlM, by iuch cop

WOMEN AND SOCIALISM
Extract! from a paper read before
the Social Democratic Party.
On being-asked to speak on the relation to socialism ot the feminist
movement 1 wu reminded of an Iriih-
man named Patrick O'Brlan, who On
being uked tf be wu any relation to
Hike O'Brien, answered that he m
a dtitant relation, he being hli mother'! flnt child while Hike wu her

quution of woman's emancipation related to tho quution of the emancipation of the working class.
There are thoie among Boctallits
who claim thit there It no ux war-
that when the working clui ihall
have acquired poueulon of the means
of production, and io attained oeo.
uomlo freedom, thit nothing elu la
necessary. .Bach working man (and
all the men will be working men In
thou dayi) will be able by hli economle security to undertake tbe rapport of one or more women and that
everything will then be lovely. In
fhet, I have beard some Mclalitta talk
u though the entire aim of •oclallsm
wu to secure to men thli privilege.
The eupported creiture li never a
free creature and the msn/who tun
the class struggle on the fact thit a
certain ut of men are dependent upon
another ut of men. tor the meana of
Ute Ji a very Inconsistent creature If
he doei not at the same time grant
that, women, being dependent upon
men for their means of life, there
jnust alio be a ux itruggle. The wage
worker struggles ever and ever for
more wagei, for better subsistence, tor
groiter eafety lu hli toll, and finally
u he. growi more Intelligent, he struggles to retain for himself all the proceeds Of nil toll, to secure the ownership of the machinery he uses, and to
eliminate the muter'! Interut. Naturally the muter itruggle! to defeat
these endi, and- stops it nothing to
entrench himself in the continued
ownership of the wealth producing
machinery. That Is the clui itruggle.
■ Tbe sex itruggle beglni when the
'baby girl wheedlu nlckles out of her
reluctant father'! pocket! by her pretty smiles and coaxing aire; and lt continue! until, u the grown daughter,
ihe sulks when she cannot obtain all

father might give her. By and by ln

methods, for girls are taught nowadays aa ot old that to marry well li
to marry the man who can give tbem
the hut living, Naturally he who
fall! to come up to her standard ai a
provider la a poor huiband. Dally the
itruggle goes on, she to wrest more
money from hli pockets. Or to Induce
him to get more by hook or by crook,
and he to limit her demands, to retain hli eelf-reipect as a man, and
yet to satisfy hli Ideal! as a husband.
More marriages are wrecked on the
question of finances than on any other. - It. Is the rare husband who don

huiband and that all her toll In his
home does not merit, in. hli estimation, the support she receives. It Is
a sex itruggle, unnatural, but based
on economic law. To end it women
muit be tree to earn their own living. Not io long ago a young wife
■lid to me of her huiband, "Why, he

Why Men, Don't Go to Church.
Editor B. C, Federationlit; I notice
in your issue of Sept. 26th along reply
to my circular which you were so good
u to offer to publish ln your columns,
from the pen of Mr. R. W. Northey.
I read thli with very great pleuure,
and appreciate very much the trouble
to which Hr. Northey went In the matter, and particularly' the outapoken
frankneu with which he itatei hli
opinions. I only with mat othen of
your readen would expren themselves as honestly. In aaklng for
some apace to reply to hli letter I
uiure you I do not wish to do so in
any carping or controverilal spirit,
for although I cannot agree with all
that he uyi re the Church, yet I am
ao heartily with bim on many points
that nothing would pleau me better
tban to meet him tor a long talk on
the relation! of the Church -and the
wage-worker. I am a man of the people
myself, and know what a hard day's
work, axe or hammer In hand means,
and I am lure that he and I have
more point! ln common than can poi-
slbly appear In your columna.
In the flnt place I note with pleuure that Mr. Northey makes very
plain that hli denunciation of mnoh
that hu been and still is deplorable
In the Church and her mlnliten Is
not Indiscriminate and sweeping—is
too much criticism of both has very
frequently been. He admit! tbat
"there ire tbouiands of honest, con-
ulenUoui, Self-sacrificing men ln the
ministry, ta all denomination!" and
thereby ihowi hli common-ieme md
falrneu—a thing too many critics forget As to those men of the opposite
type whou pulpit efforts he so strongly crltlcltes, I have never attempted
to defend, them—they deierve sll he
hu to uy of them—though.' I am
doubtful If he will flnd many of them
In a country ao democratic u Canada
I havo preached in two denominations
In this Dominion, been all over lt from
East to Weit, and have had rather
unuiual facilities tor meeting tbe mlnliten of all denomination! Intimately,
both here Snd ln Ireland, and, speaking from the Inside, I am glad to-uy
thit In the Protestant churches, the
proportion of enlightened, conscientious md up-to-date men. In the ministry
II luit u great al In any other profession or business I know. Ai to
men like the Baptist brother he

college on Canadian loll today. Mr.
Northey, however, li Surely misinformed when he accuse! the. "Church
U'l whole" of being itlll the enemy
ot the worker ln the Induitrlal Held.
No doubt the Church in the put made
glaring miitaku In this reipept, ai
in othen, but as the Church is an organisation of Imperfect human beluga,
ihe hu only done thli ta common
with every other human inititutlon.
The Church hu had to ahare m ihe
evolutionary movement of the race,
and It le eaay to go back to the backward stages of her history and flnd
many thingi.io blame in the light of
20th century itandardi. But "no fair
minded man ihould demand. that a
great composite body like the Chrli-
tlan Church ahall be wideawake and
intelligent at the dawn of a new ere,
while political partlea, the Lew, the
Preu, the college! and the* wprklng
dais Itself are just beginning to rub
the sleep: from their eyei." Tet with
all her faults the Church bu led the
van of progreu ln most of the great
upward ■ movement! of hlitory. Mr.
Northey epeaks of slavery and tho
Church's attitude to It But who
dealt slavery the very blewi which
brought about iti death? What of the
tremendoui work of Henry Ward
Beecher on platform and pulpit on
both sides of tbe Atlantic ind the
literary work of hli sister, Harriett
Stowe? Where were mveioy and
Girrlion, WHberforce and Clarkson
trained and Inspired to lead the movement for abolition T lh the Chrlitlm
Church. Who sent Livingstone to
expoie the horron of the Sieve Trader
The Chrlitlin Church; which afterward finished the work he began
against the "open sore of the world."
Take the matter of Education, ind
an Impartial aurvey of hlitory ihowi
thit the Chuch hu been the pioneer
ln thli reipect Even the indent
monuterlu of the Middle Agu,
which we condemn u roundly today,
preierved what learning aurvlved the
darkness of the Middle Agea. Before
the State ever thought of taking up
the taik of popular education the
Church lought to bring it to the very
poorest, and John Knox and Outhrle
In Scotland had their followers elsewhere in Europe. In America the
Churches stood almost single-handed
tor the higher Interests of the people
'n. this respect. As-Prof. Rauschen-
buseh Well sayi, "That enthuilum for
education which la one of the flnest
"harscterlstlcs of our country and hu
-one far to redeem us from the charge
of gross mammonlsm, was kindled and
'ed by the churches and mlnliten, by
the denominational academies and
colleges, and by the men and women
who were bred ln both"—and Rausch-
enbusch Is one of the most trenchant
church critics.
Thli li the age of Democracy and
the people ire at length beginning to
come to their own, but they are for
getting that the Church hu been the
great pioneer of .democracy. Tor
three centuries from its foundation it
fought aa hard agalnat exlitlng society
as Socialism does now, The despotic
State, Its coercion, lti exploitation of
slaves and workera, were continually
denounced, by it until, at length, the
blandishment! of Constantino proved
Its undoing. But even then, when lt
gained control of the Teutonic nVions
It strenuously opposed monopoly
proflt, usury, and' tbe unlimited accumulation of wealth. While- the
monasteries' existed they were pure
democracies. Ail distinctions of rank
and dealth Were left outside,'property
was owned ,ln common and usually
worked nncoinmon. The monks all
dresied In the same simple garb,
called each other "Brother" and In
most places the governing power wai
veated ln tbe brethren, though tn the
world around them Idle nnd lascivious
men were living at the expense of the
lower classes. The evangelical sect!
of the Middle Agei were bitter In their
repudiation of clui pride, and everything else which diitingulihei modern capitalism. Whenever they had a
chance of organising at all, tbey tried
io organise little co-operative com']
monwealthi. Of coune theie tduli
were often forgotten, ai all la other
bodlei bave forgotten theirs, but the
long and repeated stand of the Church
for these thingi .muit not belgnored.
Even today many crltlci penlit in
blaming the Canadian snd American
churches for the age-old faults ot the
autocratic churchei of Europe. The
Ncnconform.it Churchei of England
and America bave alwayi been essentially democratic. They ire today "cooperative organlutlon! rating on tbe
bull of liberty and equality, held together by good-will and lervlng tbe
hlgheit end! known to the people."
The Congregationallita, Disciples, Unitarians and.otheri similar In organlutlon repreient the principle! of pure
democracy In Church life, while all of
the other; Protestant Churches have
lone ilnce boldly taken their stand
on the ilde of the people.
Ever since Maurice and Kingsley
railed the standard of Chrlitlm So-
claliim, seventy yein ago, Individual
men tn the Chrlitlm pulpit hive been
leading the whole Church on toward
Social Reform of the mut radical
type, until every denomination hu
long ilnce established lti Department
of Church md Lsbor, or Its Social Service Department, the object of which
li to ucure In every practical way better condition! for the workeri. There
hu icircely been a Church Congreu
or Convention held In the put ten
years without ths promulgation of definite platforms Ss radical u many limed by Socialists. Of coune miny
crltlci do/ not know thue thingi be-
cause they do not come ne'er the
Church, md do not seek to undentand
her better,  .
There ll one point, too, that muit
not be forgotten. If the Church has
too largely kept out of touch with so-
dil problem! md the life of the people, it li greatly due to the fact that
men of the world have insisted with
lierceit emphasis that the pulpit ihall
deal only with "rellgloui" matten, ind
leave "le'culir" attain to the laymen:
No politic! ln the pulpit!" "No Social
reform!" ''No Prohibition!" "No Segregation!'' "Nothing but the ilraple
Gospel!"—thli hu been, and still li,
the cry In thouiandi of place!, ud
tor every* worldly brother In the pew
who hu relied it. a thouund emli-
series of hell outside have shrieked it*
louder. Scores of hereto men have
been hounded out of their pulpits, hot
•Imply by men in tbe Church, but by
every unholy Interest thit ' fattened
on wickedness In their city or dlitrlet,
became they were faithful to the
Christianity of Jems Christ. Even to-
diy, one of the commonest crltieiimi
of the pulpit I have hurd from working men li "The preacher hu no busmen with politics." "Let him sttend
to his theology and let the Liquor
Buiineu i stone," end so on. Why Is
oommerclallsed prostitution so strong:

BRAKEMAN AWARDED SS,»00.
Edward Hall Geta Maximum Sum from
C. P. R. Undir Employen'
Liability Act
Edward Hall, tbe brakeman who waa
mangled under a freight train ln the
C. P. R. yards a year ago, losing both
his legs, was last week awarded a
sum ot 13,900 damages--by Mr, Justice Murphy, The award wu baaed
on the man'i earning! for three yean,
which li the maximum award under
the Employen' Liability Act. Counsel for the C, F. R. admitted that the"
man's earnings Were et the rate ot
$1,300 a yur.
Hall had entered a claim at common law as well u a claim for 13,000
damages under the Employers' liability Act. After hearing the evidence
and argument ot counsel, his -lordship
dismlsied the Jury, atatlng that the
evidence waa Insufficient to warrant a
claim at common law. . He awarded
him, however, the maximum amount
allowable Under the Employers' Liability Act, which was 1900 greater than
the sum mentioned on the pleading!.
vHall had tripped over a "pile of dirt
In the station yard while running to
his caboose at midnight on August 5,
1912, and had bun thrown under a
moving trials. Hli lordship found
that proper lights to mark the obstruction bad bun placed by the company, md that therefore the common
law use could not succeed. Mr. J.

Many crltlci speak of the excellence ot Christianity and condemn the
church for being something different,
but in spite of all her. faults md failure! the church hu been, and la more
than ever, today, the one great .exponent ud custodian Ot Christianity,
ud the very ideals on which her crltlci pride themielvei are the product
of the Church heraelf. Prof. Seeley
who wrote "Ecce Homo" wu no
church partinn. He frankly pointed
out.the muy failure! of the Church
In the put, but sensibly added: "All
this miy be conceded without for a
moment conceding that the world can
do without Chrlit ud Hli Ohufch. If
a high and complete morality often exists outside the Church, It doei not
often; exlit independent of lt. The
atmosphere of Europe hu bun utur-
ated for lome fifteen centuries with
Chrlitlm principles, and, however far
the rebellion agalnit the church miy
have spread, It may it'll be called the
Moral Unlvenlty—not merely thl
grutut, but the only grut ichool ol
Virtue existing." And never wu thit
statement truer than today, never wu
the Church,more alive .to her responsibility, while the mut fearless ud
trenchant criticism of her faults comei
from her own-pulpits.

labor Ripriientitlve Added to Executive of Projrestlve Aasoclatlon.
The New Westminster Progressive
Association last week tendered an Invitation to Organised labor to select a
representative who would be given a
place on the executive of that body.
As a result Hr. D. S. Cameron, preildent of the Tradei and Labor Council
md one of the labor nominee! for Al-
uerraan, Waa elected by the Council to
All the position. Thli arrangement
will eliminate a great deal of the criticism which has ln the past been rather
extensively handed out to the Progressive Association by organised labor as
the workers will now be In possession
ot flrit hand Information as to the
work done by the Association ln itl
efforts to make New Westminster an
Industrial centre second to none oh
the Coast, ud thus materially assist
our Central Labor body In the work of
organising the Increased working class
population which muit follow In the
wake of newly acquired Industries.
It should be as much ta the Interest
of the members of the Progreulve Aiioclatlon to add to our population a
respectable, well-paid class of workers
as to secure a new Industry as the
measure of the real stability and prosperity of uy community is determined
by the flnanclal condition of the wage
earner! ud not by the number of factories. The presence ot a labor mu
on the boSrd will prevent thla tide of
the queitlon being lost sight of, and
will result ta orgulsed libor being
kept fully alive to their duties ln this
connection namely, the thorough or-
sanitation of all newly arrived work-

The shsdee of Judge Jeffrice, famous for his alleged "lympathy and
merer," who sentenced In one year
Over 80,000 agitators to England to be
hanged, might have been at Nanalmo
lait week to cheer'up sis honor In his
ud Bowier'i work of "mercy tempered with Justice." If old Shades were
sot there he mould have been. Judge
Howay showed the mailed Snt whan
ue stated that "counsel knows there la
no more sympathetic man thu my sell
one ever ready to extend mercy." He
then showed his "mercy" by sentencing live mm to two yearn; 14 to one
year, ud a line of 1100 or four
monthi extra; 15 to'three month! and
a- line ot 160 or two months longer.
The "mercy" -part no doubt waa the
omission of capital punishment The
learned mm paid the ladies a left-
handed compliment when he told a
New Weitmlmter Newi reporter thst
"fully 90 per cut of the women
ranked with the men In their disregard for property and even life." Howay bis a good Job it a big ulary
nd enjoys all the luxuries of life and
thui piously taunts poor helpless
wives and mothers who must bear
and' Share the sufferings ud deprivation! of their husbands in a life
struggle for a very exiitence.
I flnd your women singing 'drive

friend of scabs. The queitlon. Is propounded, did he expect the femalea of
this police-clubbed community to llnf
'Blessed be the scabi." Down-trodden humanity muit need! battle al-
wiyi with autocrats lu order to get
anything at all ln the way of justice.
"Merciful" Judge Howay haa given
out hli vlewi for publication, a moit
unusual ud unheard of thing for a
judge to do, regarding the "true description of the Nanalmo riots" to the
News of New Weitmln'ster. In lt he
shows greet friendliness to scabs. He

for hli lotions, ud "caused him to
spend eight days ta Jill." The judge
says that two ot the Ave men given
two-year termi were not "boys."
They were men 21 or 12 yean old.

Unification.
Sixty yean ago Thomas Carlyle
said: "There ll a new religion trying
to speak ltielf." Thli prophecy Is being fulfilled. The tendency todiy li
towirdi unifying all forcei Shd religion!. Modern science takea the lead.
We uied to speak of five lentei—
light, sound, taste, smell and touch.
All theae. are spoken of aa one, the
eense ot lmpreeelon. We have s world-
force thst la absorbing the belt of all
the religions of the world. No one
cm be a Christian unless he Is a socialist. The but teaching! of Confucius, Buddha, Mohimmed, Zoroaster,
Woden or any ot the great modern
teachen cannot be put Into practice
without socialism. It Is the only power for sinking the differences of men.
■Socialists msy differ upon minor mat-
ten, but that socialism li the remedy
no man who hai given It serious
thought will deny.
The growing unrest on the pirt ot
the worken represents an intellectual
deilre tor a higher and better life.
When thli deilre takes hold of a man,
he begins to recognise the failure of
put systems to gratify thli longing,
ic Is only when we sre working to-
ftether thst thli deilre will be resided.
The truth ot the old saying that ."one
touch of nature makes the whole world
kin" te being demonstrated here In
British Columbia. On Monday evening laat the Miners' Liberation League
was formed. A conference was held
comprising memben of tke Social
Democrats, tbe Soclaliit Party of Canada, the Induitrlal Workera of the
World, Philosophical Anarchists and
Trade Unionists, who were all in one
mind about the recent outrage! perpetrated upon the mlnen on Vancouver
Iiland by that lycophint of the master
olaei, Judge Howay.
Tbe Miners' Liberation League are
miking arrangements to bold a mass-
meeting on Saturday, November 8, ln
the Dominion hall, Pender street, for
the purpoie of protesting igalnst the
decision of Judge Howay, snd demand,
tag the Immediate release of the lm
prisoned miners. This li s atqp ln
the right direction. Action ihould be
token Immediately along theae llnei.
Mr. Bowier hai no uie for the working clan. He boasts that he Is not
the representative of the working
-Cain. He delight! ln Iniultlng our
diss. The duty of the working clui
li to Introduce Bowier to the "Down
ind Out" Club, ind the belt wiy to
do thli li to start an awakening In
the minds of the workera.   Our llo-
i gin ii "Down with Bowier, and liberty
I for the working clan."
Father O'Boyle bas delivered himself. He evidently believes to fooling
the worken. He baa made an attack
upon Socialism. His environment to
reeponilble for Out attack. It will
be our pleasure snd privilege to reply
to Father O'Boyle on Sundsy evening
next, November 2, In the Dominion

"The ladles, Ood bleu 'em," No

Inter without the women. Not even
a government. The Social Democrats
not only believe thli hut practice it In'
the government ot the party. The
women ot onr party have arranged to

Here Is ■ sample ot political econ-
omy'ai practiced by the McBride shd
Bowser outat. One of the priionen
awaiting sentence In the Nsnslmo Jsll
wai lufferlng from appendicitis. He
was taken to tbe hospital and kept
there for fifteen dayi, -The authorities thought lt neceuary to have a
•quid of their brave special policemen
to watch thli dangerous fellow. Six
men were employed to do thli In
•hlfti of eight houn, two men serving
each shift If the poor fellow went
to the bathroom he wis accompanied
by two trusties. For fifteen days thli
expense of twenty-one dollars wis allowed. Three hundred and nftee,n dollars ot the 'people'! money waa squandered to make thlt one lone miner uncomfortable. The provincial government will have to pay tbe bill until
the residents of Nanalmo can afford
to.   Thli li brilliant statesmanship.
