The Coal Age in its February
issue publishes an interesting
synopsis of the Indianapolis Mine
Workers Convention. The roll call
at the convention cost the organization about $11,000. Thus the
little debate caused by delegates.
McDonald's slanderous attack on
President Gompers is estimated
to have cost $15,000. There was
another little discussion on whether or not a doctor's bill of $75.45
should be paid. When a decision
had been reached time worth
$1500 had been spent on the matter.
It will be readily recognized
that with a Convention involving
such an outlay as this there was
some reason for despatch. As a
matter of fact, it was dragged
out over two weeks and the net
results accomplished are very
succently described by President
Gompers. Taking the newspaper
reports as a criterion, he said, the
most important work this convention has done has consisted
of attacks on the American
Federation of Labor and its
officers, and discussing whether
the president's salary shall be increased $1000 a year. Nothing
has been accomplished and two
weeks have passed. The only
things essayed are what the
United Mine Workers cannot do,
the regulation of street-car traffic
being a case in point, while it is
estimated that every roll call
costs $11,000.
The financial standing of the organization hardly justifies such a
lavish expenditure on this gab-
fest, Secretary- Treasure Green
in his report stated that paid up
membership was 377,682 in De-
ember, 1913. In the past two years
$2,328,167,87 has been expended
for relief, and there is now a
balance of $278,032.20, This
seems a fairly large war chest
till it is divided by the number of
members. The figure obtained by
such division is 73c. When we
recall the costs of the convention
and the fact that two costly
strikes are underway, we can
hardly anticipate along and costly strike this spring. If such suspension occurs, it cannot be dignified as a strike, the whole
reserve fund of the organization
in December, 1913 would only
provide Sl for each bituminous
mine-worker, for there are 277,
506 of these men in the union.
However, there is enough money
on hand for aggressive agitation.
A resolution was passed after
much debate that "the time had
arrived, owing, to the present
economic conditions and the
machinations of the interests in
many places, for the laboring
people to come together in a
political party:" Several Social
ists were anxious to annex that
approval notably William Hynes,
of Fayette City, Penn., and
Preston Gunnoe, of Peytonia, W.
Va., but no party was designated.
On the 23rd, the delegates
took from J. P. White the nominating of the scale committee, on
the ground that the officers of the
organization had not "worked in
the mine for a few years and did
not know the working conditions
like the men at the face of the
coal." It was decided that the
scale committee should be chosen
from the floor of the convention.
There followed a fierce onslaught on the making of contracts with operators. An advocate of the Industrial Workers
of the World from Virginville, W
Va., presented a resolution declaring that "fake labor leaders"
with false methods were tying the
miners with long-term agreements." He believed in the general strike, such as he alleged
had been so successful in England.
Official, of U.M.W. of A. Spread
Wild Rumor Among Men
on Strike.
Nanaimo Daily Herald says;
The rumor-mongers are again
busy on the streets. The men
on strike are told that they are
sure to win the fight; and their
leaders pretend to see the victory
in sight. Some reason for such
assertions has to be given, and
hence the reports manufactured
for local consumption,
The latest information from
headquarters is that the fight
is nearing an end, and the result
will be victory forthe U.M.W. of
A. all along the line. No other
result is possible. It is said that
the Canadian Collieries Company
is on the verge of bankruptcy.
The Western Fuel Company is
not in much better condition.
Neither of these companies is in
a condition to continue the strike
for many more weeks.
More than this. Some of the
executive members have interviewed Premier McBride, and he
is on the side of the U.M.W. of
A. He wants to see the organization recognized on the Island
and is willing to do anything he
can to help. He is to take the
whole thing up with Premier
Borden on his trip to Ottawa,
and if possible, the two governments will take joint action with
a view to forcing a settlement of
the trouble.
It is hardly worth seriously discussing such absurd rumors as
these. Supposing the coal companies were to go bankrupt would
that enable them to deal more
liberally with their employees?
As for the story about Premier
McBride it is a pure fabrication,
and absurd on the face of it, One
does not like to think that such
preposterous rumors as these,
obviously designed to deceive
and delude the rank and file,
would receive credence. Most
assuredly if the fight is progressing as favorably as the union
bosses say it is, such desperately
silly rumors as these* ought to be
If Angelo Could be Freed Would
Leave Island Miners to take
Their Medicine
Unless there is a material
change of front in the stand said
to have been taken by the representatives of the miners under
indictment for having taken part
in the strike on Vancouver Island
last summer, It is not likely anything will happen to cut short the
special court of assizes now sitting in this city and which for
three months has been grinding
out convictions aga'nst many of
the men involved.
Negotiations were actively
carried on up till a few days ago
tending to some arrangement
whereby the ends of justice could
be met and at the same time the
expensive court session now being
held could be shortened, but so
far there have been no results and
it is stated that the cause of the
blockade is Joe Angelo, Italian
organizer for the United Mine
Workers of America, who was
convicted several weeks ago on
six counts of rioting, riotous
destruction of property, etc. at
Extension, and is now awaiting
sentence in the provincial jail
Angelo occupies a high position
in the ranks of the United Mine
Workers and the heads of that
organization are loth to see one
of their most active workers go
to jail, hence the proviso, which,
it is said, they have attached to
all negotiations that have been
conducted that Angelo be given
his release. It is affirmed that
the officials of the American
union would be willing to sacrifice
the rank and file of the Vancouver Island locals, the miners who
went out on strike in response to
the order of the U. M. W. of A.,
if Angelo could be freed. Reports
which have floated out from the
conferences, which have been
held between representatives of
the crown and the union, that the
heads of the U. M. W. A. would
be willing to let those men already convicted and held in jail
for sentence, together with the
large number still to be tried,
take their medicine if, by so doing
the Italian International organ
izer could be saved from prison
It it understood, however, that
to all negotations for Angelo's re
lease the crown has turned a deaf
ear, even to the concession of the
union that, if nothing else could
be, he might be deported.
Nothing doing along the Angelo
line, is practically the ultimatum
of the crown, by whom he is held
to be one of the main figures and
most active participants in the
strike troubles on Vancouver
Island last summer, which culminated in damage of thousand
of dollars worth of property at
Extension. Angelo, as is intimated by the crown, has been tried
and convicted on six charges, in
eluding the most serious crime in
the calendar next to murder. He
is now awaiting his fate at the
hands of the trial judge and he
must face that fate whatever it
may be. —NewWestminster News

commission on better terms for
British Columbia. Several new
problems have arisen with regard
to the settlement of this matter,
and Sir Richard, who has been in
constant communication withPre-
mier Borden, has decided to take
these new questions up directly
at Ottowa.
Other matters of urgent public
importance have also arisen with

New Westminster, Feb. 24--
Robt. Farrell of Nanaimo was
placed on trial at the Assize
Court here today on charges of
riot and unlawful assembly in
connection with the strike disturbances at Nanaimo on Monday
August 11th.
The case was adjourned to
Wednesday as one of the witness
for the defence was not in the
city and could not attend today's
session of the Court. Farrell's defence was that he was in the
vicinity of No, 1 shaft at the
time of the riot and he also informed the court considerable
perjury had been committed during his trial. Asked by His Honor as to which side had committed perjury. Farrell refused to

Victoria, Feb. 26. The provincial estimates were brought
down in the Legislature today,
the estimated expenditure for the
fiscal year 1914-15 being $13,742,-
009, and the estimated revenue
forthe same period $10,043,915.15
The estimated expenditure included $5,316,575,00 for Public
Works, and of this amount
$2,319,500 is appropriated for
public works and buildings, $2,-
861,000 on roads, streets, etc.
The sum of ""500,000 was voted
towards the new university and
$96,800 for technical education,

$10,000 OPERA HOUSE.
It is reported that Mr. G. W.
Clinton contemplates erecting a
$10,000 opera house in the ci'y of
Cumberland. Jt is known that
during Mr. Clinton's recent visit
to Vancouver he purchased the
vacant lot on Dunsmuir Avenue
adjoining the Coiner Store, where
a new three storey building will
be erected. We interviewed Mr.
Clinton this morning but he remained non-committal, neither
denying nor confirming the report.
Should the information prove to
be t-ue it means a great deal for
this city. It will be supplying a
long felt want in the way of a
public building.
A meeting of the Central Conservative Association of the
Comox Electoral District was
held at Courtenay last evening.
Fifty delegates were present
from various points of the district
The following officers and executives of the new Conservative
associations made application for
representation and to be admitted
to the Central Association : West
Cumberland with a membership
of 75, Bevan with fifty members,
and the Comox Valley.recently
organized and making the second
association at Courtenay with a
membership of 110, which were
granted. It goes to show that
the policy of the McBride Government is meeting with the
approval of the electors of the
Comox Electoral District. Among
other business that was transacted at the Central Association was
a direct road from Union Bay to
Cumberland. Before closing the
meeting it was unanimously decided to forward a resolution to
Sir Richard McBride, Premier
of British Columbia, endorsing
the stand taken by the Government in the recent labour troubles
on Vancouver Island.
Meeting held Monday evening,
23rd inst. Present Mayor Camp*

West Cumberland Citizen* HoM
Enthusiastic Meeting ami
Organize Band
The enterprizing residents just
outside the city limits, residing
in West Cumberland, are looking
well ahead for they have already
held a meeting and organized
what is to be known as the West
Cumberland Conservative Band.
A large and influencial gathering
assembled at the Club Hall on
Wednesday evening to consider
ways and means. The last 24th
of May ana the trouble the citizens contended with in connection with Mr. J.E. Nuremburg's
concert band of Vancouver has
aroused the enterprising citizens
to establish a band of their own
that no U.M.W. of A. can influence as it did on the last 24th of
May. At the meeting it waa
found that West Cumberland
possess twenty-four men who had
already been members of a band
in some other part of the country
and these men readily entered
their names as members of the
coming band. The necessary
finance will be secured at onco
for the purchase of new instruments. Another feature that
assures the success of the band
is, Mr. W.H. White assistant to
chief electrician of the Canadian
Collierier, hydro electric plant
has kindly consented to be conductor, John Gillespie Idas
unanimously selected as president. Several committees were
appointed to look after various
details in connection with the
organization and report at a
meeting to be held on Sunday
evening. *.

and Anno sank Into the man's place by
the window, facing him, with a tiny
feeling of exultation.
■ Ho was a winner sure enough, bnnd-
tfomo nnd with the most charming
manner Imaginable. Anne dubbed him
a Harvard man when he lifted his hat.
They were all so delightfully gallant.
She was not in tho least embarrassed
.by his Intermittent gaze, which was

It occurred to her presently, however,

Accordingly she drew lho portion of

Ob, Janet's virtue! Well. It was pro-

without warning to embarrassing original self consciousness.
Janet had scribbled In ber bold cbi-
fography wherever an Interlineation
was possible fond, foolish things
which Anno soon forgot to read in her

Carried outside herself, sho leaned

The lion of tho house party had not

Duri the ' wanl ■•:' confidence" mutioii recently
brotighi on in the Provincial House by Messrs. Williams and
Place, the members fi ir Nt wcastle and Nanaimo respectively,
the former advanced several new theories as to the origin of!
the strike nn Vancouver Island. One of these theories was:
that Mr. Coulson, General Manager of the Canadian
Collieries (Dunsmuir) Ltd., finding that he could not produce
ri'. much coal as he hat
m ouraged the strike
while yet another thee
was that the Canadiai
selves brought on the ,

c iiintry editor, but an editor, although denied most of the j
s >lid things of life, so deai I i the heart of the professional j
demagogue, is permitted to ei!; ip on theories and it is not;
surprising therefore thai we have one of our own regarding
be origin of the Vancouver Island trouble.   Our theory is
chat the strike was I rought about through the machinations
of tin: members foi  Newcastle and Nanaimo.   These two

for theii capers than a strike—the bigger the better. We
contend thai to the unprejudiced mind our theory is quite
as ingenious as those of Mr. Parker Williams, and we have
a suspicion that it is equally as near the truth as any
advanced by tlie member for Newcastle.

ahead that this was to be attempted, yet the town was j [ |
so left at the mercy of these would-be rioters that all j '
the police were withdrawn except three or four.   If it L'
were not for the good sense of the miners there;
would be a different story ro roll.'   .Several miners!
were arrested on charge of unlawful assembly, but the.
cases had to be dismissed, -while not one of those
who invaded the town were arrested, and ' it was only
after considerable inconvenience and expense that I
had the leader brought before the magistrate on the
charge of rioting, on which charge he is at present
out on bail.    Contrast this with tne treatment meted
out to the president oi the union, who was held in jail
for three months without bail and treated as a noted;
criminal.'   So says the Mayor of Cumberland.
For the information of our readers we will now quote
another version of the same incident, as given by Mayor
Campbell in a signed communication to the Nanaimo Free
Press of the 2nd September last.
"This peaceful state of affairs continued until "
the 19th of July, which date happened to be tlie com- '
pany's pay day.   Because of an occurrence which "
took place on the evening of this day, an event which ;''
in any other place would be the rule rather than the "
exception under like circumstances, the provincial "
- authorities saw the necessity of sending a regiment of
soldiers and militia witli maxim guns to keep the
A week or so previous to the above mentioned
date rumors became current thai a number of strike
breakers would raid the town. As these rumors were "
rather vague little credence was placed in them by ther'
authorities.    However on the evening of the 19th. i
and as rumored, a procession of these strike-breakers .''
marched into the town headed by a fellow whose very ■''
appearance was sufficient to be a menace to the peace"
of the city under such circumstances.   As would certainly be expected a crowd quickly gathered, but:'
apart from a little excitement, and as the employees!
already mentioned quickly dispersed, the trouble wasj
over within fifteen minutes,
So far as the actual facts of the incident are concerned,'!
we consider them exaggerated and distorted in each version, |
but it is not our present object to discuss this but rather to
compare the two versions closely.   Iu the communication to j
the "Free Press" the incident is belittled and made light of
(as the letter was a protest against the presence of the police
and militia).   The rumors of the coming disturbance "were1
so vague that little credence was placed in them by the!
authorities" (Mayor Campbell).     When the strike breakers!

marched up and down the street calling on the strikers to

with the express purpose of raising a riot and ln this casej
"it was well known two weeks ahead that this was to be

authorities could put no credence.   "So says the Mayor of

Weare not going to take up the cudgels on behalf of

speech in the Legislatun in reply to the vote of censure
moved by the Member ft r Nanaimo, it is apparent that Sir
Richard McBride has throughout been au fait with the
situation and has dene all that has been legally possible to
to end the strike with justice to all concerned. What we are
more particularly concerned with is the reverend gentleman's
statement that he had been in communication with the
Mayor of Cvmberlard. In the doings and sayings of

Those who Misrepresent Only Deceive
(From Ladysmith Chronicle)
The miners doubtless had many grievances to complain
of, but we imagine that the greatest damage has been done
to their cause by men who under the guise of friendship
have misrepresented the whole situation from beginning to
end. It will not improve the unfortunate situation for men
who should know better to circulate absolutely misleading
statements, and those who have been guilty of this misrepresentation only deceive themselves wlfen they think they are
making friends with the strikers. The demand for an
investigation into the causes of the strikes and riots if
acceded to might really have the result of placing the blame
on the shoulders of the men who are responsible for the
trouble. When thc true history of the strike is written, it
may be found that the fault of the trouble is not with the
miners, but with some of the self-appointed leaders who
bungled the fight from beginning to end, and prevented a
peaceful solution of the problem.

'Man scans with scrupulous care
the character and pedigree of his cattle and dogs before he matches them;
but when he comes to his own. marriage he rarely or never takes any
such care. He is impelled by nearly
the same motives as tho lower animals

choice, though he is in so far superior
to them that he highly values m»r,la:

hand he is strongly attracte.t by mere
wealth and rank. Yet ho might by|
selection do something not only for
bodily constitution and frame of his

Forestry Facta

square miles in extent. On these reserves, especially it. tlie Rock;- Mountains, are considerable areas of grassland, which by the n.w Forest Iteserv*
Regulations will be made available to
western cattl owners, under suitable
restrictions. As yet, few r no cattle bavo been pastured on these Reserves, but tho possibilities of litis
new auge will bo .understood from tbe
fact that more than 20,000,000 bead
of cattle grazed on the National For-
ests of the United States during the
last fiscal year. If only one million
cattle were grazed on Dominion Reserves at tbe minimum charge of twen-
ty-livo cents per bead, the Dominion
Forestry Brunch would ....-rive an annual revenue of at least 3250,000 from
this sourco alone, while the stimulus
theso Regulation wlll undoubtedly
give to stock-raising should eventually
result in cheaper meat ti the Canadian consumers.
