during, the next year a large number
of new union, affiliated with the Council. With Interest revived the Council took an active part in every phase
of civic and political work. They
kept busy on the heel, of their repre-
seatalfvee In both the Dominion snd
Provincial houses snd many matters
of Interest to the workers were
brought to consummation. In the fall
of 1898 Messrs. Watson and Cowan

chairman of the organisation committee and he went at the work with
great vim and succeeded in adding a
great many unions to the Council's
roll. In the spring of 1899 the famous
Deadman'a Island Job was sprung and
thhe Trades Council was one of the
first to move in the matter. By resolution they unanimously   condemned
the action of the government in granting the lease snd the president started east on a citixens- delegation that
had been appointed to protest to the
government against the granting of
the lease. Before he arrived at Ottawa the next meeting of tne Council
waa reversed. This caused the resignation of the president, secretary and
treasurer, besides several other !m<

opportunities for self-employment have
kept the minimum higher on this side
of the Atlantic. Men, could not be
brought to the European standard of
grinding necessity. Th. difference
has been strangely attributed to tho
protective tariff, to the republicsn
form of government, and vaguely to
.pedal dispensations of Providence.
As the natural opportunities which
have afforded mean, of escape from
the wont condition, disappear we will
find that we enjoy no. special care
from higher powers, and that neither
the protective tariff nor democratic
institution, can avert natural results.
There is considerable timidity about
discussing tha economic causes leading to tho condition, already disclosed
In Toronto, and as a consequence we
hear only such Inadequate and virtually impossible remedies aa the paying of higher price, by consumers.
The effect la mistaken for tho cause,
and It Is urged that the desire to obtain cheap good, forces down the
wage, of tho worker.. While mean.
o* aalf-amployment are available So
eagerness for cheap good, can bring
wagea below the average returns from
such opportunities. When such opportunities disappear the worker's returns will go to tho minimum of subsistence, whether the price of his
products he high or low. It Is the
condition of the labor market, and not
the condition of the goods market,
that fixes the price of labor.

' That tbe recurrent period, of commercial and Industrial depression
which* basei' tbe path of modem society are due to the restricted market,
of capitalism, which are in turn occasioned by the syatematlc exploiTa-
tl< n of the workers, has become a
commonplace of Socialist propaganda. . But it la Important to remember that the bare fact of exploitation doe. not .lone constitute an explanation Of these period.. Under
previous industrial systems, chattel
slavery or fedualism, for example, the
workers were exploited even more
severely than under ca pi Hal ism. yet
the phenomenon of hard times was unknown. The reason obviously wss
that under these systems production
wss carried In for use and not for
sale. The surplus taken from the
labor of tbe slave or serf was con-
binned by the master or lord. Consumption wm thus always made to
match production. There being no
production for the market,-and. In
fact, no market, there couM, of course,
"be no glutting of tbe market It 1.
because under capitalism, production
ia primarily for th. purpose of sale,
and the surplus taken from the work-
era must first pass through the market before the exploiter can enter Into
a personal enjoyment of it. that cap-

; But, white the combined fact of *x>
nloltatlon and production for sale explain hard times, tbey do not explain
good times. Were these combined
circumstances in constant operation*
the period of commercial and Indus*
trial depression would be oroken. The
truth is. that at periodic intervals capitalistic production, like production

In the formula, therefore, that period, of recapitalisation are period,

cycle of capitalistic industry, and also
in explanation of that periodicity in

But the novelty has worn off

Consider, for an Instant, the following case, which is pathetic enough to

is at preaent exploited with great
gusto by local paper.. A solid and

steps la and says that he must not
train hi. children to become respectable sausage-makers and ueful citizens,

What does the poor father do? He

who advisee the father to

realizing It. At the bo-
i historic period woman
complete subjection to man.
8he had So long been a mere slave and
drudge that she had lost all the higher attribute, that she originally possessed andin order to furnish an excuse tor degrading and .busing her,
man had imputed to her a great array
of false evil qualities that tended to
make her despise herself. All Oriental
literature, all the ancient sacred books

epic, all the literature of Greek and
Roman antiquity, and, la fact, all that
waa written during the middle ages,
aad much of the literature of the fifteenth, sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, teem with epithet., slurs mid

hateful, often malicious and evil dhv
and usually endowed with some

wonm   reflects
that it is old-
of  language   from
this world-view,
er than
Handing all this vast net-
mds that have been con-
holding women down, it is
peculiar and significant that everywhere and always she has been
ly credited with a certain
power in which the world has, aS it
were, stood In awe and fear. While
perpetually proclaiming her Inferiority, Insignificance and weakness. It
has, by It. precaution., Virtually recognised her potential Importance and

arguments most relied upon for the
Justification of the continued subject

being physically inferior to man, the
difference between the sexes has been
widening during the put age. and la
greater in dvilixed thsn in savage peo-
plee.   *   '*��� *   The difference which
exist, between the mean of the crania
of contemporary Parisian women is almost double the difference which existed In ancient Egypt.
Accepting these statements a. in all
probability correct, what is the lesson
that should really be drawn from
them? In the androcentric regime woman dropped Into the condition of a
subject class and was denied much
that was necessary to maintain her
normal existence: * ' ���' * When we
come to the historic period we have
seen how universal and systematic hits^**
always been the suppression of woman
and her legal social exclusion and ostracism irom everything that tend, to
build up either mind or body. When I
reflect upon It, the wonder to me Is
rather that woman has accomplished
anything a* -11. ��� ��� ��� If. Jacques
Lourbet, in his "Problems des Sexes,"
says: "Let no one Insist longer on the
modest contribution of woman to the
creative work of art and science. She
suffers to this day from the ostracism
of centuries that man haa imposed upon her from the network of exclusions _.
and prohibitions of every kind in
which she has been enveloped, and
which have ended in producing that
apparent inferiority, which is not
natural, but purely hereditary."
Aa we contemplated these factors
the wonder grow, why woman did
not .ink still lower. The only possible reason Is that, despite all, she Is

Tha extreme poverty of the people
and the relentless exactions of landlords and tax-gather^ra are vividly
described. Capitalist newspapers
would make us balieve that the main
grievance of the Russian people 1. the
lack of. constitutional government like
that of England, France or the United
States. But Mr. Walling's story brings
out clearly that the vital grievance,
of the Russian peasants and working-
men are economic, not political, and
that they wish votes simply as a
mean, for getting control of the land
and machinery, without which they
can not produce the things they need.
The working people of Russia are In
some respects far more intelligent
than those of America. They are already free from superstitious respect
for property, and, it is only brute
force, only the guns and whip, of the
Cossacks can keep them from appropriating the wealth they have pro-,
duued. And even thi. force Is ceasing
to be effective- .No peasant village
can res|.t the Csar's fighting machine,
but when that machine has passed on,
leaving dead bodies and flayed backs
behind it, the surviving peasants can
and do attack and plunder the landlords. And within the army itself the
revolutionary spirit la growing. The
new compulsory recruits are almost
sure to be loyal to the people rather
than the Czar, and the triumph of the
Revolution can not be far off. The /"
government would already have fallen
but for the help of the capitalists of
western Europe, who wisely feel that
a Buccesseful revolution In Russia
would imperii their own power. We
can not follow .Mr. Walling ih hi. concluding chapter., where he, Interprets
the revolutionary movement in terms
of a semi-mystical philosophy, hut we

of what is beyond doubt the moat vital
