Important Judgment Delivered in Court
of  Equity  of  District of
Washington, D. C, Dec. 23.���Of far-
reaching importance to labor and business Interests throughout the country,
was a decision announced by Justice
Gould, of the Equity court of the District of Columbia, enjoining the American Federation of Labor with a
membership of 2,000,000 trom boycotting the Buck Range and Stove Company, and from printing in its official
organ the company's name as unfair
and "we don't patronize" lists, and
the occasion arraigns the action of the
Federatijon  as   an  illegal   conspiracy.
Tomorrow there will be an ar-gunient
before Judge Gould over a proposition
of counsel for the Federation that the
courts order putting the injunction decision into effect, limiting in express
terms, its application to the District of
Columbia. The counsel for the plaintiff company will oppose this. The injunction granted today, while of a
temporary character, was allowed in
a decision In which Judge Gould exhaustively reviewed the case, made
copious citations of authorities, quoted
precedents as to boycott definitions and
���-���aid there was no room for argument
as to the conspiracy alleged being in
': pi -ration.
Permanent injunctions will come up"
probably next spring, and which ever
side wins in the final settlement, the
case, it is believed, will' he taken to
ihe Supreme Court of the United States.
Judge Gould pointed out from the
bench today that he had not in his
decision taken up the question of inhibition of the boycott under the Sherman and anti-trust laws, or the Interstate  commerce   act.
Attorney J. F. Ralston, of the counsel
for the Federation, said tonight that
he had no opinion to express regarding
ihe decision, that the injunction was a
temporary one, and that In so far
as the question of the Sherman or the
Interstate Commerce Act which question liad been discussed in the proceedings, was concerned, he regarded the
de< ision as affecting the phase of the
case   for   the  defense.
Former Assistant Attorney Alfred J-
i;eck. for the plaintiff, regarded the
decision as a sweeping victory for the
opponents of the boycott. Judge Gould
also handed down two opinions granting permanent Injunctions in the case
of Bender against the Bakers' and Confectioners' Union, and Lawton against
the International Carriage and Wagon
Workers' Union, two local cases which
���he court decided alone the same lines

American Book Trust Pays Dividend of
40 per Cent.
New York, Dec. 22.���Stockholders of
the American Book Company, sometimes called the "school book trust,"
hold a special meeting today to take
steps looking to a reorganization ot tlie
company. Tbe company was incorporated in 18SU under the laws of New Jersey, acquiring the property of the Van
Antwerp. Bragg Company, of Cincinnati, lvison, Blake &. Co., of New York,
and the school book business of D. Ap-
pleton & Co., Harper & Bros., and A.
S.  Barnes   &  Co.,  of  New  York.
As the headquarters of the company
are in New York and the uost of the
business done here it is proposed to
abandon the New Jersey charter under
which it has operated since its organisation and incorporate under the laws of
New York. The capital stock is td���be
$5,000,000, the same as under the old
company, and in addition $2,500,000 in
bonds will be Issued. The surplus of
the company last year amounted to
$2,700,000, so that this is simply converted into a bond, leaving the company
the use of the capital, but alao giving
stockholders the Immediate use of the
accrued profits of the company. The
b-..nds wilt bear G per cent. Of the issue bond**. $500,000 will be retained in
the treasury of the company, but the
rest will be distributed pro rata among
the stockholders. This, in effect, will
amount to a dividend of 40 per cent,
on   their  holdings.

When despatches from Ottawa an
nounced that II. G. Mcl'herson. M. IV.
.Duncan Hoss, M. IV, and others, had
made a series or orations in the house
of commons on the Asiatic immigration
.question, we expressed the opinion that
the purpose of such proceedings wab
mere gallery play to the Asiatic Kxclu
slon League in liritish Columbia. That
auch opinion is the generally accepted
one in the east is clear from the follow
ing comment of the independent Mont
real  Star:
"The British Columbia Liberal mem
berts took up a day of the time of the
parliament to bol themselves right with
their constituents on the .Japanese immigration question. The could accom
plish little else, for It is plainly and
properly the policy of the government
to await the report of Hon. Mr. Lemieux
���before considering whether any further
action is necessary. It would, indeed,
be a most ungracious act for the Can
adian government Lu take any new departure on this question while the Mi
kado's government is negotiating with a
member of the Canadian government
sent to Tokio to deal with this ver>
Thus all that can be got out of a day's
debate now���or a week's debate���is politic*. The Hritish Columbia Liberal
members have come in for not a little
criticism at home because they permit
ted the new .Japanese treaty to pass
without Incorporating in it -ft definite
statement of the understanding between
the two governments regarding immigration; and they are naturally anxious
to show by a belated zeal that they are
quite as good friends of the Hritish Columbia workliigmi'ii as Premier Mcltrhli-
or any other Conservative.
"It is a  pity that bo delicate a ques
tlon should bo dragged into lhe turmoil
of party politic;-, at all. This is a matter
of our foreigu relationships; and If we
are to play a dignified part as a nation
among nations in the world, we must
learn to treat questions affecting our relations with other nations with more
restraint. They are not legitimate fields
for party attack or party defence. It is
inconceivable that a debate should be
precipitated in the Hritish Commons on
the relations, say, of llritain to Germany
at the very time when a special Hritish
envoy was in Herlio negotiating with
the Kaisers government on tbe precise
point at issue. .None but novices in
world politics would be guilty of such a
Such exhibitions as these are the most
crushing comment on our aspirations to
be called "a nation." We will not be
regarded by other nations as one of
theni until we grow up and learn to
bthave ourselves like an adult. Bo long
as ihe eagerness of a set of local
politicians to justify thmeselves before
their own constituents is held to override the rules that govern international
courtesy In our high court of parliament,
we can talk as big as we like, but those
who know the rigor of the game will
smile at our assumption. It is uot
enough to own half a continent und to
be six million strong to be at nation.
"It will probably be too much to expect the government to rebuke It., own
followers, lt has far more likely wink
ed at their indiscretion. Playing polities
is still the chief concern of tbe great as
well as the small at Ottawa. Hut It is
altogether likely that the attitude ol the
government will be quite correct so far
as its own utterances go; for that will
be the easiest reply to the questions
raised. They will simply ask parliament to await the report of Mr. Lemieux.
And parliament can do nothing less.
When that report is before us, then we
can deal finally aud with dignity with
llle whole question."
Boundary Labor Situation.
The labor situation in the Houndary,
so far as kr.r,wn. is practically In the
same conditio^ as it was a week ago.
While a number of cuui_ri.nceH have
been held between the management of
the Granby Consolidated and their former employees during the past week,
no news of a definite character has
been given out to the press or the public. It was stated by an officer of the
union las* high' lha' matters has progressed to such a stage that everybody
who wished to do so would lie i*b|e to
return to work within a week; but
whether or not the conditions upon
which the union men are willing to reenter the employ of thr Granby arp. acceptable to the company Is not known.

pm-iaed thnniKh the city. Ho haB been
reBldiUK borne time in Hrltlab Columbia, where he haa been prospecting.
He was lu Cnlgary u few nioutbb ln
the year 11*01. and while here predicted
the death of President McKlnley just
a few days before the assassination in
that year. Tbe prediction appeared
first in this city.
He made a number of predictions
which bave been borne out by results.
His forecasts, he maintains, are merely BCientitlc and are not dreams or in
any   wuy   supernatural.
He Is not a professional predictor, but
has held important chairs in U. S.
He predicted a decade of unusual and
abnormal ocourrencea during Ihe first
ten years of the present century. With
floods like that of -Galveston, with panics such as some parts of the world are
passing through, with earthquakes
such as Valparaiso anil San Francisco
as well as in other parts of the world,
with wars such as we have seen, he
believes that the predictions have become true.
He predicted the disaster of the coasl
cities. Two cities, Valparaiso and San
F'rancisco have fallen. He believes that
thy time for others Is yet to come. He
maintains that Japan will probably be
the next to meet disaster and it will
come in the way of a tidal wave
which  will do great damage.
Dr. Uichardson uses his science in
the more minute details of business
life. He believes that the next period
is bad to start out In anything. He
would start no business of any kind
He would not get married during the
next fpw months, and it would be better that no children should be born dur
Ing that time.
Dr. Richardson left for the west and
will be in Vancouver during the next
few months.

Arbitration Court's  Award.
The court of arbitration that sat on
the appeal of the Movie Miners' Union
against a proposed reduction of the
wage scale at tlie St. Kugene mine, has
favored the Canadian with a copy of Its
award. The contention of the men for
equal wages for all men employed in
mines is rejected and an elaborate aeries of scales is arranged, specifying
what the court considers fair wages for
all classes of labor. Hut the principle
that the men are entitled to benefit from
lmpioviug conditions is conceded by the
recommendation ot three distinct scales,
one for normal, one for abnormally lav-
orable, and one for abnormally uniavor-
able conditions. Present conditions
are declared to be abnormally unfavorable, on account of certain specified
causes, chief of which are the low price
of metals, Uie uncertainties ol the metal
markets, and the expectation of further
declines. The lowest scale recommended Ib $'2.75 per day for common laborers
during abnormally unfavorable* periods.
The highest Is $4.80 for several occupations in Uie best periods. The margin
for each class between highest and lowest is 50 cents a day.

I: tome caustic criticism has been In*

critics have very truthfully pointed ou,
that there has boci* no disorder in
