The following is a statement as
to the position of the joint committee representing employees of
the Western Fuel Company,South
Wellington and Jingle Pot on the
strike situation at Nanaimo:
"In September, 1911, an agreement between the Western Fuel
Company and their employees,
representing in the neighbourhood ol' 1,500 men, was duly entered into and signed by tbe said
company on the one side and the
the said employees represented
by a committee of live on the
other. Previous to this agreement being entered into a holiday
was declared and a mass meeting
called for the purpose of appointing a committee, said committee
to be known as the agreement
committee, whose duties were
first to confer with the operators
and draft out an agreement satisfactory to all parties concerned.
This first duty they duly performed and in due time they
Submitted their report and proposed agreement to the men.
The report was accepted and the
form of agreement wa1; accordingly balloted on and carried
unanimously. Tbe committee
then had the agreement properly
drawn up and signed by the company's representatives and themselves as the representatives of
tho employees. That committee's remaing duties are to
sec that the conditions laid down
in the agreement aro carried out
to the satisfaction of all concerned.
The same conditions exist between the Pacific Coast Coal
Company and the Vancouvcr-
Nanaimo Coal Company and then-
employees with this difference,
that their agreements were drawn
up and consequently expire on
different dates.
Now, in the face of this we
have a strike declared by an Organization which on February
11th, 1913, bad only some two
hundred members in this district
who were in good standing. (This
information is from the local
secretary, A, .Ionian.)
This strike was proclaimed by
Robert. Foster, district president,
from instructions given him by
Frank Farrington, representing
the International Union, U.M.W.
of America, wbo forwards said
instructions using the authority
given him by President John I'.
White, of the U.M.W.of America,
These instructions wore forwarded from Seattle under the date of
April 30th, and the strike was
declared for the following day,
May 1st a strike planned for us
by a foreign organization and in
a foreign country and forced
upon us without say, by your
"We appealed for a voice in the
matter at their meeting on the
evening of May 1, and what did
we get? Wc were abused and
insulted from their platform by
a foreign agitator, and were
whipped into submission by the
words "scab" and "sucker" if
we dared open our mouths in our
own defence, treatment that any
man who is a man will resent. ■
"In spite of all abuse and intimidation, we still maintain that
we were bound to live up to our
-agreement and continue to work
under conditions of said agree.--
inent until the time (two years)
had expired, but rather than go
to work in an unsettled, dissatisfactory manner we resolved to
place the matter before the men
and give Ihem the opportunity
to ballot as lo whether we should
abide by our agreement and go
lo work or not. We engaged a
suitable place and procured the
necessary ballots, and what was
the result'.' We were again sub-
milted io insults and abuse, so
much so that hundreds, who
would have voted had ihey been
allowed to do so pcacably, were
so intimidated that they dare not
go near the polling station. Consequently the ballot was small,
the vote resulting 132 for Work
and 44 against.
In view of the small ballot we
agreed to refrain from work and
advised those who, voted to
govern themselves accordingly,'
and here is where wc now stand.
Wo refuse to admit that wc are
willingly on strike and while we
are ln favour of a union we obso-
llltcly refuse to become members
of an organization whose tactics
are so disgraceful. The U.M.W.
of America have forced us into a
strike, thus violating our agreement and violating the laws of
our country inasmuch as we have
violated the law-as it is laid down
in the Industrial Disputes Investigation Act, which reads thus,
"Every employee who goes on
strike contrary to the provisions
of this act is liable to a penalty
of ten dollars for each day or
part of a day that the strike
Wo do not try to defend everything that is embodied in our
agreements with the companies,
but we maintain that these agreements were entered into in good
faith and with our eyes open and
should therefore be kept sacred
and inviolate till the term of
agreement expires. And in the
meantime if the mincworkers,
not only of Nanaimo and district
but of tbe whole of Vancouver
Island, would unite themselves,
Ihey should be able to satisfactorily attend lo their own business
without the need of foreign interference of which we bave hail
plently of sad and costly experience in the past'.

A Siberian
And the Charge That
Came Later
By   P.   A.   MITCHEL
Edwin Borden, nftcr having graduated at a law school, suddenly found
himself by inheritance ln possession of
I fortune. He resolved to put off the
practice of Ills profession for a more
congenial occupation—traveling. So
he went to Europe and "did" ull countries, winding up with Husshi.
After doing Warsaw. Moscow and St.
Petersburg he concluded to go into the
country and see something of Itussluti
rural life.
One dny while walking on the main
street, or road, rather, running through
a Tillage, he saw what appeiirpiTtu lie
I crowd ln the distance moving townrd
him. Wben it came up he saw it wus
one of those snd processions of prisoners on  their way to Siberia.    First
eame a line of soldiers marching "route
Step." then criminals, politicals, men,
women and some wbo were scarcely
more than children: Among tbe latter
was a girl of about eighteen. Tbat
she was a political was apparent from
ber features, wblch marked refinement, intellect and character.
To see any one ln the strong arm of
the law is snd. but to see a girl on the
very threshold of life trudging along
through snow, with armed men ready
to shoot her if she attempts to get
■way, her destination the terrible mines
of Kara, on tlie Arctic ocean. Is enough
to freeze tbe blood in one's heart.
While Borden was looking nt her she
raised her eyes and met bis. and so
great was the sympathy she saw in
them that she returned It by au espres-
■ion of gratitude. Borden would have
walked on that he might continue to
look at ber, but tbe sight was too snd,
■nd he feared to be considered obtrusive, so he remained standing where
be was till tbe melancholy procession
bad passed, then gazed after them till
tbey disappeared, a dark spot on the
White snow in the distance.
Borden went buck to St. Petersburg,
.tnable to throw off a sadness induced
by the distressing sight of persons going to n doom .far worse than death,
■nd passed through the city, delaying
only long enough to pick np baggage
be had left there aud be sure that bis
passport was In proper condition. Then
be started on his way to n more congenial "climate and a land with a less
despotic government
One thing he did not forget during
the rest of his stay in Europe nor after
bis return to America—the face and figure of the convict girl on ber way to
Kara. He could not shake off the melancholy procession, especially the one
person ln It who hnd returned so pathetically his look of sympathy. He
took an office, swung out bis shingle as
an attorney and tried to work, but clients were not to be bad without an effort, and. having a fortune, there was
little Inducement for blm to make It
However, be stayed on for a couple of
years, then gave lt np and returned to
Borden wben abroad at times stopped
at pensions Instead of hotels. At the
former he made acquaintances, while
it tbe latter he usually passed his unoccupied time alone. One day on arriving at Paris he stopped at a pension at
wblch be was accustomed to pnt up
wben in tbat city. Tbat was the year
the czar of Russia visited the French
people and became their ally. Indeed,
be had just arrived ln Paris at tbis
time. Borden had gone there to witness the festivities attending tbe monarch's reception. At dinner Borden
sat opposite the entrance of the dining
room and suddenly, looking np. was
startled at seeing a woman enter whom
be recognized at once as the girl convict he had seen on her way to Siberia.
But, oh, how changed! Instead of
appearing as one Just from her teens
she looked as if she might be anywhere between thirty and fifty. And
Instead of wearing tbe patient look
of a martyr her face had become hardened.    It seemed to Borden, perhaps
because he knew something of ber
story, tbat abe was thirsting for revenge.
On meeting his gaze she gave a slight
start, but passed on without giving
any other sign of recognition. She was
alone and sut at one end of n table
where there were no otber diners. Uer
back wns to Horden. so lie could not
see her face. He left the dining room
before ber and waited lu the adjoining
room, where he hoped to get another
sight of ber. While at dinner be had
made a story to tit her case. This was
what be fancied:
She bad suffered ln the mines of
Kara. She had joined hunger strikes.
She had fallen under disease in tbe
damp prisons and living upon unwholesome food. She had found an
opportunity for escape. She had tolled
through suow or over frozen waters to
some country, Sweden probably, where
she had arrived hungry, frostbitten,
more nearly deud than alive. And now
that she was free she was consumed
by one all absorbing passion—revenge.
And here the presence in Purls of tbe
man who stood fur all this wrecking,
the emperor of ltussla, furnished ■
Site wns there to kill him.
The girl must have gone out by on-
otber door, probably to avoid blm. Disappointed, he was about to go to bis
room when a servant approached blm
nnd handed him a bit of paper. Opening It. he read:
May I ask that you wlll Join me for a
few minutes In my private parlor?
"Most assuredly," were the words
that came to hlui. but he did not speak
them. He simply followed tbe servant,
who led him to a door, knocked and
left him. The door was thrown open,
and before him stood the woman wbo
bad occupied bis thoughts for two
years. She shut tbe door behind hlui
and stood for a few moments as if
striving for composure. Then she said
in a'low. unsteady voice, as If fearing
to be overheard, "I have sent for you
to ask you not to mention to any one
having seen me on my way to Kara."
"I certainly- will not mention it,"
Borden replied. "On the contrary, Is
there anything I can do for you?"
"There Is. Engage passage for me to
America as your sister or some other
"1 wlll do so with pleasure. When
do you wish to sail and from wbat
"As to your first question, it depends.
As to yonr second, Cherbourg will probably be the best for me. Engage a
room for the next steamer. If 1 nm
not ready to leave then 1 must take tbe
next Inter."
"If I am to trust you it is but right
that you should trust me. Tell me your
She did so, and he bad been right In
his surmises as far ns they went. Her
fate had made n madman of her father. Her brother had gone to Kara
and had arranged for and effected her
escape. But he was killed by bhe
guards ln doing so. Her mother hud
died of grief Induced by the family misfortunes.
"And now." said Borden after she
hnd given n synopsis scarcely more detailed than tbis, "you are here in Paris
for revenge."
Tbat he had divined ber secret was
evident from the stare she gave him
und a nervous shudder thnt passed
over her. Almost in a whisper Borden
"You are here to assassinate the
Whether it was that the danger, the
horror of it all, was suddenly revealed
to her; whether it was that her secret
had been so readily divined, causing
her to realize that her design was impracticable, does not matter. Possibly
she did not know herself; possibly it
wns n transfer of the burdeu she bore
to one who sympathized with her. Her
frame shook convulsively; then, throwing herself back in her chair, she guve
way to passionate sobs.
Borden deemed the last of these suppositions correct nnd permitted her to
take ber time to decline froun\being
strung to the highest pitch to a normal
reluxedness. Then, reaching forward,
he took her hand in bis and said:
"For two years you have never for
a day been absent from my mind.
Heaven has sent me to befriend you.
Let me bear your burden. This meeting has brought n change for us both.
I see for you, If not n happy future, nt
lenst one of comparative comfort
: (live up tbis mad design nnd let me
help you. plan for you, that you may
gradually throw off a terrible past and
take on a more Inviting future."
!    Borden In telling the story added:
"There is an undercurrent to this ex-
I perience that no words can properly
! express.     Yet   without   lt   my   story
| would be like salt without savor.    It
would have been merely nn episode.

I with our meeting, she was brought to
look upon wbat sbe bad had in mind
with   horror.     More   than   this,   the
i whole current of her life ns well as
mine was turned Into smoother waters.
As she herself afterward expressed it,
the change wns like riding into a safe
liarhnr, leaving behind n tempest of
angry winds and waves.
"And what was this bidden power?
It flashed between her nnd me wben
she was staggering in the snow on her
way to Kara, wben she looked up nnd
saw pity in my eyes.    Love, like the
electric spark, passed from me tn ber

"It was splendid!" I managed to reply, quite honestly, for Margaret Is a
fine cook.  "But. truly"—
Well, lt was all off. Margaret smiled
a sad, wistful smile, which said as

says, and. although their language
I and customs are entirely different
j from ours and their religion Moham-

i the Berbers, and many ol them have
rosy cheeks and features so like Eng-

abuse from owe end ol' the country In tlie other on tlie supposi-
thai it had intervened and forced a strike': Asa matter of
fact, the strike was started by tlie Vancouver Island miners
then-solves and fathered aud financed by the T.M.W..!. after
it was started. Bnt at Nanaimo and district conditions ure
entirely different. Here wo have the U.M.W,.!,, which is an

seutinty numerically only a very small pcrcenlugoof otii'iiiiuci's,
eiitUavouriug to forco a strike on the community, That is a
position which no fair-minded man can endorse. Striking is
not illegal, and it is the privilege of every man to strike. There
is no law which can compel a man to work : all the law can do
is to compel, him to discontinue work in n proper 1 regular
manner. But when a large body of workmen ure satisfied
with their conditio*, and are desirous of continuing work, and
an alien organization steps in, and by every means at its disposal seeks lo force n strike, it is time for people to consider the
situation, not merely in the interest of the miners who wish to
work, but of the investors whose money has lieen spent to build
u/.i a valuable industry, and pe.ihaps more than all in the interests of the aeneral public to wnom coal is n necessity.
No sane man who understands the great labour question
would wish to deprive organized labour of any of its legitimate
■Weapons; nor put any obstacle in the way of securing by fait
weans whatever concession-" in the direction of better wages,
short hours or more favourable .surroundings the industry will
stand. But it is doubtful if the action of the U.M.W.A. docs
not violate principles which cannot be violated without ddnger
to the whole community, and it may ivell ho thai the present j
situation is one which the Government wou/d be justified in

The nurse trl'ul to frown and look
severe; hut she was a woman, and the
frown would not stay on in spite oi
her endeavors.
For a minute, then, the said hastily,
but only a minute, Really, really,
It might he very bad for ber, she continued, turning appeallngly to the Major. Mrs. Ftivington has had a very
bad time, and she is still very ill.
Mrs, Rlvlngton! The words came
Involuntarily from Kaston's lips, and
the eyi s of tlio young couple met.
Vlolot's were frank and clear, and in
them was a look that made Easton's
heart beat fast. Then gently Violet
shook her head, as If to tell him to
take no notice.
Quickly the Major bent over her.
Then It isn't true, he whispered. Oh,
J knew it was not.    I was suro.
He heard the 'No,' he felt her fingers
press his, then with a little hush, she
turned her head away and he drew
himself up again, ready to face tbe
Thank heaven! he murmured, and
now for the future.
At that moment the door In the
passage which the Major had closed
behind him was flung wide. A hasty
step crossed the landing and a man
entered the room swiftly. The nurse
shrieked, and even Ea»!on gave a
hasty exclamation. It was Neil, and
Nell in desperate straits apparently,
for his (ace was bloodstained and
Swollen, his eyes blackened, and his
Ups cut and bleeding.
For a moment, every one remained
motionless. Then Neil's glance turned to the bed and the pale, sweet,
young flRiire it contained. •Ills eyes
and Violet's met. Violet, he said.
My God!
For a moment it seemed to Easton
as If he was going to leap forward
and take the young girl In his arms.
Then with a mighty effort, the slim,
dark man conquered himself. His
black eyes, flashing even through their
bruises, took in the room, the nurse,
the patient, in one swift glance, and
he turned.
Come, he said to Easton. Quick,
there Is not a minute to waste!
And he caught him hy the arm.
But she, Violet? asked the Major,
Neil tlnslieil round at the nurse, fixing her with his keen, stern eyes.
Watch her, if you value your life!

Could she help being so? Major

Poor child. But so pale! That man

for to both of us. But his timu is

her; NeiTs iron lingers were dragging
at his arm and voices came even now
from the far parts of the building.
Come, rried Neil again. Come! We
will return, I'tell you, we will return!
And reluctantly the Major yielded.
It was not a moment too soon. For
as they made their way as swiftly and
silently as they could down the nearest s-'aircasp, they could hear men
swearing angrily, and snirryintr footsteps came from tbe further side.
Even then they might have been
overtaken by their pursuers, for a
wrong turning in the rabbit warren led
them to a kitchen which in its turn
gave on to a backyard with walls far
too high to scale.      But, tbey recover-

street,  followed   by   Neils  man,   who
staring at them for a space in amaze-

I    Neil,  who always seemed to know;

leading the retreat,     But, giving a
glance behind  him after a time, he
pulled up at last rutiud a convenient,
: corner.

said.     There's no one ufter us.    Let

j The building he pointed to was a
little public house, standing In an unfrequented street, and judging that

companions, breathless now, turned'.
into the bar, which fortunately
chanced    to be empty.

I feel as if I hardly know, he said.
Everything went well to start with.
1 watched you Into tlie place, and as
you did not appear again, I concluded
it was all right. I rang the bell and
saw the Professor. He told me he
was booked for a lesson with a gentleman, but I stuffed him up I wanted
the hang of one or two stops and
counters, for .i fight I'd got coming
off down Whltechapel way. I got
him interested and he offered to show
me, as I hoped he would, while he
was waiting for you to come down.
You were a long time coming, though,
and thinking perhaps you wanted
something hat he hadn't supplied you
with, he suggested that he would run
up and see. I knew lhat wouldn't
do so I stepped in and gave him one
on the jaw. I meant just to geft
him interested, but the blow was a
bit harder than I intended. I think
he imagined I was a bruise" sent by
some rival firm to knock him out, or
else he lost his temper. At any rate
In another second we were at it hammer and tongs. He is a very useful
man, and I got ns much as I wanted,
as you see. So much so, indeed,
that I very nearly passed out, as tho
Yankees say. However, something
had to be done, for 1 felt from your
being so long that you had made some
discovery. I dodged round as well
as I could, but it was hopeless, and
pretending to lose my temper at last,
I picked up an Indian club that 1 fell
against and bit him an awful crack
over the head with it.
Stem measures!   said  th.   Major.
They had to be. I was not having
a happy time and you cannot hurt
those men for long. I knew that,
and when he went down for a time,
I tied his hands with the rope of the
punching-ball, put half, or more than
half, of a boxing-glove in his mouth
and stowed him into a cupboard.
Good heavens! «ald Easton, gazing
Nell smiled. Oh, he's out, you
heard him looking for me just now,
he said. I am glad we got away
without him seeing m> together.

said  Easton.
Neil shook his head. I doubt it,
he said. He would, perhaps, if you
had burgled the house while 1 was
getting knocked about. But he won't
miss anything, and it is certain he will
believe that I was paid to knock him
about. Your'disappearance lie will
put down to disgust at returning ti
tho gymnasium, and finding him gone.
And very naturally, loo. Why
should ho connect you with a sooty
individual like myself? In any case,
you weren't recognized, that is the

Some have been lilted out with new

Here Is a man whose left arm ends
In a slump at the wrist. lie is crv-
ing quietly; tears have an oil.', look
on that tough, wrinkled face, with us
shaggy fringe ot beard. He came in
with six wounds from shrapnel bullets
and the doctors say that lie has made
a marvellous recovery.
Clean living, sober, strong, with the
peasant's lack of any nerves to suffer
from the pain and shock, he has lived
through what would have killed a European soldier twice over. With the
smashed leg from which he will hobble all the remainder of his days, he
crawled thirty miles from where he
was hit at Lule Burgas to the field
hospital at t'horlu. But now he is
crying, because as he says, he would
rather they had let him die.
The doctor pats tlie grizzled fellow
on the shoulder like a cilia, but the
tears still stand lu Mehnied's eyes.
Where is ho to go, he asks. How
ts he to live? He holds out his stump
of au arm. He can never hold a
spade  or guide a plough again.
You must go to your friends; they
will look after you. says the doctor,
encouragingly. He has no friends
and no family now, he answers. His
little farm was by Klrk-Kilisse. He
left it with his wife, his mother and
three children. Where are they now.
They must have filled the bullock cart
with what they could and fled, leaving
the remainder to the Bulgarians, like
all the others. What has become of
them since then he will never know.
Did they die of want and exposure
on the way? Did Ihey meet a worse
fate at the hands of the Bulgarian peasants, rejoicing in opportunities of revenge on defenseless Turks? Did
the cholera take them in that foul-
sour-smelling concentration camp
among the graves and the cypresses
outside the walls of Stamboul? Or
have they passed over, line thousands
more, into Asia Minor, to live on the
charity of others almost ns poor as
the iiselves among the snow?
Mehmed will never know. His wife
and children are lost in the wilderness
and he, a helpless cripple, is turned
out into the jostling alleys of Stamboul
to find a living as best he may.

used wood was that it was easiest to get and most convenient to use.
Wood is no longer easy to get. Like most building material, its cosl is increasing at an alarming rate.
Thj cost of concrete is decreasing. . So, from the standpoint of either service or economy, Concrete is the besl building material.
Canada's farmers are using more concrete, in proportion lo their numbers,
ihsn the farmers of any other country.    Why ?
Because they ate being supplied with
