Nanaimo Mines Idle Yesterday
and Today. Advantage taken
of holiday to make trouble.
Tho agitators are evidently
satisfied that their efforts at
Cumberland are a failure, and
find it impossible to continue the
trouble any longer, the output
having almost reached its normal
ondilion. They have decided lo
make Nanaimo their camping
ground; and il is reported that
the U. M. W. of A. have posted
notices there to the effect thai a
strike has been declared and calling upon the men to unit work.
It is said the agitators managed
to secure a, holiday at Nanaimo
on May 1st, then took the mean
advantage of declaring a strike
without giving any notice to the
Western Fuel Company what
their demands were, and the
union requested the men to quit
work. We understand that
the U. M. W. of A. have but Tlw
followers in Nanaimo and are
very much in the minority, which
is sho\yn by the fact that a joint
ommitteo called a meeting asking the U.M.W. of A. lo explain
why they bad called a strike,
and arc anxious to know of their
authority. At a meeting held in
the skating rink last night, when
there were about 1,200 satisfied
employees present, who refused
admittance to the leaders of the
U.M.W, of A. and rough necks,
and decided to take a ballot today
on the situation, which it is expected will result in the men returning to work.
The rough necks, we understand, held a meeting outside
and issued Orders that their members were not allowed to vote or
take a secret ballot as a strike
had been declared, and those who
voted for work and those who
went to work would be branded
by the U.M.W. of A.
Everything is quiet at Nanaimo and the result of the ballot
will not be known until Monday.
The question is being asked what
are the demands made by the U.
M.W.ofA. upon the Western Fuel
Company. We have been for
almost eight months trying to
find out what the demands wen;
against the Canadian Collieries,
and so far have failed.
Now is the time for Nanaimo to
lake a decided stand against the
U. M. W. of A. for all lime and
inform them their organization is
not required on Vancouver Island.

Judge Dayton Charges U. M W.
of A. with Conspiring with
Rival Cob! Operators.
Wben the United Mine Work*
ers of America, some live or six
years ago, were carrying on lhe j
campaign of disruption that end- j
ed in the difastrous strike of-
1909 at various Nova Scotian coal
mines, the coal operators were I
greatly laughed at because Ihey j
stated their belief that thcactivt-
liesof tbe U. M. W. of A. were
not entirely unconnected with the
desires of the American coal i
operators to control the markets
where Nova Scotian coal came
into sharp competition with coal
from, the United States. Later
developments proved that the
suspicions of the Nova Scotian
coal owners were very well
founded, and an interesting sidelight on the local situation is
given by an important judicial
decision recently handed down in
West Virginia in connection with
an injunction again1'! tho U. M.
W. of A. asked for by the Hitch-
man Coal and Coke Co., of
Wheeling, West Virginia.
In 1909, Judge Dayton, of the
District Court for lhe Northern
District of West Virginia, .granted a preliminary injunction
against the U. M. W. of A. restraining Ihem from picketing
the mines of the Hitchman Coal
Co. After legal proceedings extending over the whole of the
intervening period, Judge Dayton
in December, 1912, confirmed the
injunction and made it perpetual.
The reasons actuating the decision
are so apposite to the conditions
that existed in Nova Scotia previous to the strikes of 1909 as to
be well worth quoting. Judge
Dayton sums up as follows:
"I conclude, therefore, that
this organization, known as tbe
United Mine Workers of America,
is .an unlawful one, because in its
constitutions, obligations for
memberships, and rules which
(1) requires its members to surrender their individual freedom
of action, (2) seeks to require, in
practical effect, all mine workers
to become members of it whether
desirous of doing so or not, (3)
seeks to control, and restrict, if
not. to destroy, tho right of the
mine owner lo contract with its
employees independent of the
organization, (1) to exclude his
right to employ non-union labour
if he desires, (5) to limit his right
to discharge, in tho absence of
contract, whom he pleases,and for
any cause or reason which to him
seems proper, (0) assumes tho
right on its pari, by and through
its officers, to control the mine
owners business by shutting
down bis mine, calling out his
men on indefinite strike in obedience to their obligation to the
union, whether the men desire to
quit work or not, whenever the
union's officers deem it for the
best interest of lhe union, regardless of the rights and interests of
the. mine owner, and regardless
of his direct loss and damages
and such indirect loss and damages as may be incurred by him
by reason of the resulted violation
of contracts by him with others.
"I further conclude that it is
an unlawful organization because
of its procedure and practices in
that (1) it seeks to create a monopoly of mine labour such as to
enable it. as an organization, to
control the coal-mining business
of the country, and (2) has by
express contract joined in a com-

body of rival operators, resident
in other states, to control, restrain
and to a certain extent destroy
the coal trade of the Stale of West
Virginia. It has spent fourteen
years of time and hundreds of
thousands of dollars to accompT'sh
this unlawful purpose. The rules
of law relating to the responsibly
of individual members concerned
in such a combination are plain
and well defined."
The coal operators who are
joined with the U. M. W. of A.
in this injunction are the unionized operators of Western Pcnn-
Indiana, Ohio, and Illinois, known
as the "contracting" States. The
leaders of the U. M. W. of A.
have undertaken, at the request
of the coal operators of these
four states, to unionize West Virginia, hence the strike af Cabin
and Paint Creek that have been
distinguished liy the anarchy
which seems lo be inseparable
from the methods of lhe CM.
W. of A.
From a strategical point of
view, it was no doubt very good
business on the part of the U.M.
W. of A, leaders and ihe Pennsylvania operators to attempt to
absorb ami control I lie mine
workers of Nova Scotia. Had
these gentlemen succeeded il is
beyond doubt thai last year, instead of lhe Nova Scotian coal
mines producing their record output, and thereby netting Ihe
Provincial t.easury lhe largest
sum for royalties yet collected,
they would have become caught
in tbe maelstrom of American
labour politics, and would have
been laid idle by lb" leaders of
the U.M.W. of A. in "sympathy"
with the strikers in Illinois and
other places in the States. From
their actions in the past it is
evident lhat the toiighlful miners
of Nova Scotia do net intend to
sacrifice themselves to the inordinate ambition of the labour
oligarchy in the United States,
particularly when it is seen that
the effects of the U. M. W. of A.
smooths lhe path of the sales

operator.—The Canadian Mining
On April 30th No. 4 Mine
hoisted 720 tons of coal in 8 hours
making it the largest output in a
single shift in the history of tbe
mine. No. 5 Mine on the same
day produced in eight hours -10(1
tons. The output for No. 6 on
that day was 303 tons, while No.
7 hoisted 339 tons, making a total
of 1762 tons for a single shift of
eights hour?.
The output for the weekending
Friday May 2nd total 8,954 tons.
These figures, which are absolutely correct and wc defy any member of the U. M. W. of A. to contradict them, say a great deal for
this district. It almost places
Cumberland in a normal condition
such as existed previous to the
so called holiday.

In generating power for colliery
installations an important consideration is one of economy;and
large horse-powers generated at
a central station will be morn
economical Hum small ones scattered all over the place. In the
case of a central generating plant
it can easily be split up, and
transmitted to any desired point
of application and a central electrical plant will in this respect
prove more economical than power generated al a number of small
stations, i'he cost of maintenance and supervision will he. less
if the work is properly concentrated. The question consists
chiefly of adaptability of machinery, concetration and distribution
and the form of power which
lends itself to this combination
claims the advantage over other
forms. A combination of electricity and compressed air has
proved useful for operating machinery about a colliery. The.
more we ran simplify these varied
operations and actuate each from
a common source greater economy
will be realised. In dealing with
any system of power transmission
the whole matter boils down to
one of dollars and cents. In dealing with colliery installations it
is best in all cases to provide for
li,e plant being of very ample
size, because if it works satisfactorily il is generally found that
extensions are quickly made, and
the severe usage to which colliery
machinery is subjected make the
more costly plant the cheapest ill
the long run.
In the last article it was stated
that an electrical horse-power
was equal to 716 watts. The output of a dynamo is usually expressed in kilowatts; and 1000
watts equal 1 kilowatt, therefore
the power of any given output
equals r"„ equals electrical horsepower. The brake horse-power
necessary to give this electrical
horse power is found by proportion from the commercial efficiency of the dynamo, and this
brake horse-power is the power
that is actually required at the
dynamo pulley and is equal to the
power left for actual work after
the power absorbed by the friction of its own parts has been
deducted, and tbe effective horsepower (which is tbe power imparted by the steam iii the cylinder to lhe piston), necessary lo
give this brake horse-power must,
be calculated at about 20 per cent.

power required at the dynamo
pulley, 'recalculate the amount

During the evening he and his host

general, warmed hy the juice or ths

plans fur gaining an advantage over
■General Washington. Above the apartment in which they sat was Anne Old-
en-thaw's bedroom Though the timber
with which houses were built in those
days was far more durable than nuw,
It wus rough hewn and nut so carefully

was a knothole, nnd In the wooden
celling of the room below was n crack,
Anne, who had gone to bed. but uut to
sleep, hearing voices below, was desirous of learning what the general
might have to say to her father. Sn

a warm wrapper, put her ear to the
hole In the floor. She was enabled to
bear a plan the general was stating lu
her father for capturing s large American force then located near Trenton,

from that of bis sister. He wns desirous that General Washington should
be warned, but was deterred from betraying his father's guest by giving the
Information. Love of country, however, triumphed over otber considerations,
and he determined to carry ft to General Washington, whose headquarters
at the time were In the Kurd mansion

then a stopping place for postboys
traveling between Morrtsfown nud lln-

town and In a couple of hours rode up
tu Washington's headquarters. He was
received by Colonel Alexander Hamilton of the staff and Immediately introduced to the commander In chief.
Upon receipt of tbe Information he
brought Washington gave orders which
would block his enemy's game and
asked Edgar Oldershaw what be could
do to reciprocate the favor he had received at hia hands. The young man,
feeling loath to return to his father's

Blue or Gray Eyed Parents Cannot
Have Brown Eyed Children.
Since blue aud probably gray eyed
parents hate no brown pigment In the
outer surface o( the Ins they cannot
transmit brown tu lhat portion uf their
children's eyes. This absent characteristic uiuy be one that has been lost or
it may never have been acquired, It
is known in heredity laug*unge us a recessive. Hence, to repeat, two recessive* produce In tbelr offspring only
their recessive condition.
The hereditary hehav lor of brown eye
color, however, is very different In
brown eyes actual pigment occurs in
the iris. Here there is something au-
ctitmilated to hand on down to subsequent generations Tlie amount that
can be transmitted, however, depends
on one's own hereditary history ns well
as thut of one's consort. If both of
Smith's parents belong to brown eyed
Ktrulns, then Smith can nave only
brown eyes. And since Smith has been
given, us it were, a double dose of
brown lus eyes will he dlll'k brown.
Smith will have. In his turn, only
brown eyed children, whatever may he.
the color of his wife's eyes. In the language Of hereditary. Smith's brown eye
color dominates over blue or gray.
When Smith's brown eye color lias
lieen derived from one parent only,
then h,.-; own eyes will tend to be lighter iu color and only half or his germ
cells will have the potentiality for making brown eyes. Heme, it he marries a
blue or gray eyed wife, only hair of his
children Will have browli eyes, and a
light brown, tut*, because nf two generations of dilution, In case Smith's
wife also bus brown e.ves derived from
one of her parents only, then three out
of four of their children will have
brown eyes, but only one of the three
will get a double dose of brown; hence
Smith's brown eyed children will not
all transmit brown in the same degree.
Thus it is possible for a brown eyed
parent to have one-half or one-quarter
or his children blue or gray eyed. But
It is never possible for two blue or
gray eyed parents to have brown eyed
children— Independent
Conditions That Cause the Bunting or
Cracking ot Ice.
Ice never bursts from freezing. As
soon as the liquid of which it ls composed is ftir/eii sulid expansion ceases.
The cracking or bursting of lee la
brought about In this way: When water Is subjected to extreme cold ice
crystals will gradually form on its surface until the same are covered with a
thin coat of what appears to be wet
mow. l-'rntn this outer coating of ice
crystals all subsequent free/sing goes
downward, the ice thickening according to the degree of cold. Tbe water
which Is being couverted Into ice now
begins to expand, creating a pressure
upon the unfrozen water below. This
pressure is both downward and outward, uud hi case the water under observation is iu a vessel the sides and
bottom of the receptacle supply tbe resistance.
As the freezing process continues the
pressure upon the confined water and
air iu tlie interior of the bulk increases
until something yields. If the vessel
he .stronger than the ice stratum that
lias formed over the surface the layer
ef ice will be bent upward ut tbe center, thut being the weakest point, on
account of the fact that tbe outer
edges of the congealed mass are frozen
fast to the sides of tbe vessel in which
the experiment is being made. In this
condition the center of the ice continues to rise ur bulge until It bursts
from the resistance of the water below.
Could the vessel be tapped from below
and tlie wnter drawn off no amount of
freezing would be sufficient to crack
or bulge tlie ice layer ou the surface.

A School of Anns'.' queried the .Major.
Yes. And not n bad sor: of hiiiiiiB

But, to my story. Ynu can't mistake a tiling of that kind, and Coombos
turned In there like u inuii who lias
finished lus day's work. 1 watched
for Borne time, on the chance that
he might come out, and then 1 telephoned for my man; but while I wus
watching 1 saw something that made
me pretty certain I was on the right
scent, said Nell with a smile.
What was that?, asked Easton.
A boy from Harborow's with a box
of shirts addressed to Professor
Wicks, School of Arms, ICuston Road.
The boy looked as surprised us I did
when lie saw the place he wus to
lea\e tils parcel at, and while he was
hesitating 1 took a look at the label.
Now. you know the Professor wears
about one shirt a week und stands up
to be knocked about by any one whoi
likes to pay ten shillings un hour for
a spar, and It Isn t probable he goes!
to Harborow's for his linen. Bui Borne
one does wbo has things sent under
cover to the Professor. And, taking
that into conjunction with the tact i
that Mr. Coombes has found bis way I
there after trying to follow us, it!
really looks as If we were getting on. |
The Major rose to his feet. Come j
he said. Let's tackle the rascal and
get it over.
Neil put bis hand, sooty as lt was. |
upon the Major's cuff. What do you I
propose lo do? he asked calmly.
Go to the place and rout that blackguard out, and make him tell us
where Violet is, said Kaston, enthusiastically.
You can't do it thnt way, said Neil
There are probably a dozen bruisers Ihere, or within easy call, let alone
the Professor, ami we should get|
thrown out before we got past the
front hall. Aud very likely quite
right too, for we don't know Rlvlngton s there, after all, do we?

Why not? Think what a place to

She, Violet, in that place, among

We don't know that she Is. We
must find out. If we do, we'll soon
have her out and safe, hut we must

Easton groaned. Oh, I cant wait,
he said. I feel 1 must know if she
Is there or uot.
Nell did uot reply, but beckoned to

with an eye on his sooty linger. Bring

we can do anything sooner. i can

What have you thought of? asked
Easton, relieved.
This. But It's a risk, mind you.
Are you a boxer?
Only very average. Haven't had;
the gloves on for half a dozen years. ;
I could hold my own In a rough and '

Kaston nodded.       Very    well,    he
said.     What then?
I shall wait just round the corner.

' I'm in good training, and 1 know some

lor,  doubtfully.
!    Yes.     I know it's a pretty big 'un-
! less,' but we have got to take a risk.
Hullo, here's my man.    What's hap-'
■ pened? .
A broad, soldierly-looking man had
entered the tea-room, and after looking round  made his  way  up  to  'he'
table where the two friends were sent-
Nell signed to hltn lo speak freely, j
soring that he hesitated an dlookedl
doubtfully ut Kaston.
lie's gone, sir. Went nut just now.!
1 should have left lhe sign for you
and followed him, but someone came
down to the gate with him anil Ij
heard them arrange that he should
come back In a couple of hours, so I,
judged it right to come across and1
tell you, said the man.
By Jove, that s a bit of luck, said j
Neil. That's all right Dart, youj
couldn't have done belter. Come
along, Major, we'll go across now,!
and nart shall wait for us outside.!
He may perhaps be useful.
Easton jumped up, and paying their,
bill at the little pigeon-hole as tbey
went out, they made their way Into |
the street.
A little way along the Euston Road,
Neil halted and, pointing to a house
some distance along the street with a
garden running down to the footpath,
he said: That is the place, Major, the
one with the board in the garden.
1 will put my man here somewhere,
where we ran get him quickly if we
need him, and come on after you, if
you nre more than a minute or two.
if you should come across Rlvlngton
dodge him if you can, but if you
can't, come straight back to us. and
we will decide what must be done.
Don't, in any circumstances, have a
row with hitu now. It might upset
Easton nodded assent and, leaving
the two men, crossed the street and
made his way towards the house Neil
bad pointed out.
He stopped a moment on reaching
it to glance at the large sign-board
planted in the shabby front garden,
and decorated with much gold-lettering, together with half-tone reproductions of the Professor and other box-'
ing champions in full war paint, and
to ren-1 tbe announcement of 'Special;
Evenings' it contained, and then
striding to the pathway, be rung .he]
It wus ovident that, in spile of the;
sign-board and bis loud appeals to

a more modest man Unit hi' appeared,
for the Major's first ring brought forth
no reply, and al lhe second, only a;
little square irnp opened In ihe heavy
door, about on a level with Kaston's
head. Prom this lhe face of an old .

Another feature of this Grahame-

It wlll almost certainly be found also

The idea (fr the construction Is that

The design was prepared In 1881
and the engineers alluded to had elaborated the design in accordance with
the progress of naval architecture an I
armament between 18S4 and 190ft, and
had r.'.so taken part In the development
of submarine vessels for naval purposes.
Mr. Asnulth formally acknowledged
the receipt of the letter, snys ihe

so far as England was concerned.
A different fate, however, awaited an
analogous communication addressed
hy the same group of engineers to a
high quarter In Germany. Action
thereupon was at onee taken un Ier
conditions of a most profound secrecy
which have been successfully maintained for nearly four years.
Matters have now readied a development of such magnitude, however
adds the writer, that certain particulars ot what Germany is doing have
begun to leak out.
