As an illustration we quote the following, viz.:
"While everybody in Cape Breton is
congratulHting themselves on the happy
ending of the dispute between the
Dominion Coal Company and* its employees it may ba pointed out that
subtle influences have lately been at
work which if unchecked may lay the
foundation for much future trouble.
VVe refer to the movement to induct
Nova Scolian and Cape Breton miner*
Jo' throw aside their existing otganiza-
tion and adopt that of the'United^Mine
Workers of America. This movement
has already made considerable progress,
the foreign organization having had a
man in the province-for some time
carrying on an active campaign with
the members of the P. W. A. In fact
the movement has met with considerable success," a. number of the lodges
including "\ Pioneer" and Mechanics'
lodges al Springhiil and -Olive Lodge
at No. 3. having already voted to efface
themselves and go over to the American
order. The arguments advanced in
favor of this course are specious but we
do not believe they are sufficiently convincing lo induce any very large number of the lodges lo decide in favor of
throwing in their lot with the foreign
order. In fact we are inclined to think
that lodges which have so decided have
done so more as a matter of pique und
disappointment than from the exercise
of the better judgment, Tho Springhiil
lodges are in a measure dissatisfied
with the conclusion of their labor
troubles and possibly Olive Lodge is
smarting under a grievance eitliet* real
or imaginary, When second thought
has been taken wo trust these lodges
will reverse their hasty decision.
The P. W, A, was originally organized by intelligent miners of this
province lor the purpose of averting u
threatened danger viz., the control of
Nova Scotia conl mines hy American
operators through tin American union,
The Knights of Labor had organizers
in the territory and the Knights had
secured 11 foothold in sonic' aniiitl*.**,
The Provincial Workmen's Association
was instituted nnd ijuickly caused ihe
scheme of United Stales Coal Mine
owners to fall to the ground, They
plotted to check coal mine development
in Nova Scotia in order that American
i-oiils should control the Canadian
market hut failed notwithstanding the
support given tlicm hy Ontario nnd
nnd the West. How the Nova Scolian
mines have been developed h'iiuc llinl
date fa a matter of history known to till,
Hnd lite coal mines of this province
been Involved in, nil the trials of the
Knights of Labor |(ii.cc that dale the
r*>ant(c (innnrlullv urn! nthr-ru-lco ivnuld
,-,hv«4 ru>i»n runinus. Are the miners of
Nova Scotia prepared lo revere the
wheels of progress, fall into the trap net
for them twenty years ngo nnd hand
over their freedom lo 'n foreign mid
urinjviifirtliicnv. witti-OH-uu^i. t Wc
11 think not, American mining journals
«rc openly boasting that they hope
through the amalgamation to drive
Nova Scolian coal irom die upper
Canadian market and already upper
Canadian* are moving in Parliament to
descry Nova Scotia coal and have the.
protecting duly of 50 cents a ton
'     ,!   IHYj'.CCTi   ".J."■*•*.;   ''"..-''5 -       :  '
There are provincial and patriotic
reasons'; why this move should be
checkmated but we think the members
of the P. W. A. will net need to consult
other , than personal interests in order
to give this- movement for .'amalgamation it's quietus". "At trie" present' time
the_Nova Scotia .mirier is independent
and perfectly able to take care of him
self.'* We~does ridt, need the miners of
fifPennsylvania'tind Illinois gathered
from - the four quarters of the globe to
dictate how he shall run his business or
conduct his union. The latest arbitration under the Lemieux Act has proven
that the P.W.A.-whh such aMe officers

as McNeil,* Moffatt and others ar**, quite
able to secure justice to the miners.    '•
They hav* no Lemieux Act in the
United States' and the entire* procedure
would not be familiar to the officers of
the American Mine Workers' union and
it is more than likely that the interests
of Nova" Scotian and  United States
, miners not being similar, had
incident occurred after the amalgam*
tionwe would have bad the, American
While it is admittedly to the interests
of- the United States miner that he
should secure an entrance to the
Ontario markets it is clearly, to tlie
interest of the Cape Breton miner that
he should not.,- It would be, human
nature to suppose that the American
miners would work the organization to
suit their own ends which being ih the
majority they could and would easily
' The above inspired article taken from
the Daily Gazette, Glace Bay, Nova
Scotia, is a sample of the. arguments
used by the capitalist press'in order to
kesp the workers divided. Just such
language was used in-Great Britain.
It failed in tlie old country and it will
foil in Canada, National prejudice is
dying rapidly and wc.. are glad of it'
Far from dictating to the Canadian
miners, union with the United Mine
Workers of America „- has had a
moderating eftec*1 upon the miners
of the west and has added great
prestige to the miners in Canada,
The officers of tlio mine workers of the wesl nre all Canadians
and can be relied upon to protect the
interests of the coal trade against any
machinations of corporations on the
American sido. So fur wc find that
Canadian corporations (being mostly
run by American capital) arc quite able
to protect themselves, Nova Scotia
will join the Mine Workers as there is
only room for one miners' union on
this continent.

little hope'of ever getting, rid of them
and I finally gave up.in despair. One
day a friend gave me a sample of Za-n-
Buk and told me of someone, who had
been cured.' I decided to try it, and
the relief I got', was - encouraging. 1
bought a box and the piles kept on
diminishing and ihe pain getting less.

When tne nineteenth'century died
its spirit descended to the vaulted
chans!ber of the -past/' wliere" the
spirits of the dead centuries, kit on
granite stones together.,-When the
newcomer. entered all turned . to-
, ward', him, and .the spirit of --. the
-eighteenth ^century., spoke: ."Tell
thy tale; brother. Give ns word of
the human,kind we left,to thee."
"I am the spirit of5 thetwonder*
fill century.'' I gave.nian the mastery over-nature. Discoveries and
inventions which lighted tbe black
space of the past like, lonely stars
have clustered'in'the milky way of
radiance over my rule. One man
.does by the touch .of.his hand
what the toil of a, thousand slaves
never did. Knowledge has unlocked the. mines of wealth, and the
hoarded wealth of to-day .creates
the vast 'wealth1 of" to-morrow.'
Man has escaped the slavery, of necessity and is free.
■'""I freed the. thoughts of inen."

- Their knowledge:is-common to all;
-The deeds" of the east at-eve are

send their whispers under'the seas

/.•I" broke the '."chains .of, bigotry
and "despotism., ' I .made men ■ free
and equaiU ■ Every man feeis the',

spoke for all.'       , .,-.   ■
"We;all spoke .proudly when we
■came here in the flush of our deeds'
and thou' more proudly'than we
all. But as -we sit" and think of

none in fear of hunger^for ^to-morrow? Do all children grow up fair
of limb and trained for thought
and action?-' Do1 none, die before
their time? -Has the maate.-y > of
nations, made men free to enjoy
their "Uye^'and loves; "hnd ,to .'live
the higher life of the-mind?
"You have made men wise. Are

learned to restrain their bodily

As the spirits of the nineteenth
century llatened, his hood'sank to
his breast.
"Your shame is aiiea*.ty upon

In another column we publith an
article from a Chicago' taper, advising the working man tc vote
for a Socialist candidate at the
coming election. •
We sviWmit that'it would be wise
for the working man, and all who
wish to have wage earners get a
fair chance, to do the same at
the coming elections in Biitish
Columbia. ,, \,   .,-
The writer is perfectly aware
that all wage earners are not socialists, out and out, and he is
not asking them to join the Socialist's* ranks at all, he is'simply
advisimg' the wag* earner to support the "Socialist, candidate" at
the coming election, holding, himself perfectly free, also perfectly
independent for all future occasions, but to. support the fusion
candidates this time, and for the
/very best of all reasons, because
no other party candidate' will entirely support measures favorable
to the wage earner.   ,
its arsenal
tbe union label, instituted in ,1874 By
the '"Cig-Sr S!ake;rs,.'lUnioir"of'*San
.Francisco, for the protection nt white
against yellow labor, and since then
adopted by almost all labor unions
for protection against non-union
labor. ' The Caesar of the States, be-
yond-whom there is no appeal, held
that such boycott violated the' provisions-of the seventh section *ot the
Sherman anti-trust law, being a conspiracy to restrict inter-state trade,
and punishable bv fine and imprisonment besides being .amenable for
damages to the extent of three,times
the amount sustained by the boycotted . person or company. Not only
are trade organizations responsible
as organiZHtio'ns bat each individual
member may be also dealt with, as
equally guilty and punishable under
the provisions of this act.
This, following upon two other decisions of the supreme court, "The
holding of the Employers' Liability
Act," which held the employer responsible tor neglect of his employees,
and the '.'Erdman Arbitration Act,"
the provisions of which protected a
workman irom arbitrary dismissal
because of his affiliation, with a trades
union,,handed down June 6th and
27th, respectively. These- three
decisions encompassed within' the
space of one short month, caused the
doughty champions of labor with tat
salaries, to cease for. a time,' their
love feasts with Carnegie arid Company,* in-order that the source of
their income should nor, be dried up
entirely and attend to the interests
ot labor. ^  '. .    '_•* . I

Wc notice among our exchanges
that all the cities and towns* are making
nn effort to have u holiday proclaimed

he proclaimed for that purpose and pur
citizens should not make use of it for

most remarkable document couched
in obsequious terms and void of that

one would naturally look for .in,,a
document of this character.' From
the wildernes9_of servile-verbage wn
cull the principle statement. "We
submit for consideration'and trust the

amendatory to tbe Sherman anti-trust

■; ".Without doubt," the report,says,
"the presentation of labDr's protest by
pur accrediteds;representatives did
much to convincei-'.tho country (at
large that labor expects of coneress
the relief, which is in the power,of
the ' law making 'department' of
government and expects it Irom this
present session of congress "
In the name of,the down trodden
millions,    what is   meant bv  the
"country at large?"   Does labor not
constitute    by    an    overwhelming
majority,   the   country ;at  large?
What need is there to convince any
one but the laborers,' the tpiU-rs, the
wealth  producers—absolutely none.
But we mast confess that it they expect anti-capitalistic laws from  a
congress   controlled   by capitalists
they are doomed to disappointment.
There is one,way for labor to obtain
its --emancipation - and" that;; is- riot
mentioned in the address.   That way
is to seize the legislative powers and
by virtue thereof' sweep awav all
hindrances to social evolution, which
constantly   tends   to   complete'co-
operation* of "the individuals for the
better  well   being  of each".    This

j Johnston '.has-, been ,<' writing* "in
- ~. 1V';/-r''lMe^e's,1 * page^hand^bill criticising the "Report" given'in bur columns ot,.-tne case, 5,'Strachan vs.
JicCutcheon and Milner." and he
wrote N as if tthe report. ^ was the
Ledger's opinion, and evidently
with the intention of bringing
down bad feeling against the Ledger. -*•>'-•   ■"'.',"'-.;.' '     *    '  .
If Mr. Johnston is capable of
reading ■-, straight, -;*he' can easily
discover for himself, that what appeared in the Ledger was a report
and not a criticism of the case. ,
If Mr. Johnston can substantiate
what,*.Mr. Meikle^has obliged, him
by publishing," under the belief
that the,-.<'Ledger" would get a!
stab in the, dark, then his proper
course' ■ -' -would, \be'~to"reopen the
matter in the courts., -,!,    '
' In any' case .the ... "Ledger" has
nothing to do with it except to
report the evidence given in open
court. . We. are .not lawyers 'but it
appears to us that if Mr. Johnston "knew so much about tho values of Prospect property that ;he
would, have done well' to have taken the oath and in that way have
got in his statement. To write evidence about "a- case that has been
tried is hardly the correct- thing
if it is not contempt of court.
Anyway wo ..may tell this Mr:
Johnston, that according to ' :the
defendant's own- statements they
bought._the.lots for, about '*?20.00,
each- and a .week later sold them
at over' six' times that price.    ■•-

Wdat Is Parpiirted to Have Been Discovered
in the Hotel Donnelly.
'According to the , press reports that
come from Tacoma the Jap invasion is
right at this time ?in a good healthy
condition.      " "'"..,
It is claimed that two of the precious^
"little brown men" who were employed
at the Hotel Donnelly aB bellboys, were
found to .have in their possession "the
regulation'Jap*military rifle and. admitted that theyjvere -trained soldiers,
o! the Mikado's army. ;
If this be true, and there is no, good
reason to suppose that it is not true, it
indicates very clearly, the^ preparntion
that is being made l.y.the'l"Isla!idjKiti-r*-
dom" for the subjugationtof the" United
States Is it not possible that 'nearly
every. Jap in the.United Statesliis a
trained soldier?
Is there any way to distinguish a
trained JaD soldier from a trained Jap
thatis not a soldier? "All Japs; look
alike to me." -    .,,
, It is inconceivable how the American
pe&ple can be bo oblivious to real "danger as to suffer and ever? encourage the
Jap immigration." *    .
A few quotatiomvfrom Patrick Henry do not seem to be out of place at this
time: "Is it not natural for ..man to indulge in the illusions of hope? Are we
not apt to close bur eyes against a pain.

About all the paper has been'wasted
in passing resolution that "tieed'beiwasted. This is not ;a matter of tiiiioiiisYn.
It is not confined to organized labor or

Every American that employs a Jap
drive's a naifin the coffin of the white

yellow race.
Every white man that works with a
Jap degrades his citizenship, his .home
and his country/ Every man that stands
up and defends the Jap invasion ought
to,1 be banished to'Japain for evermore.
Any white man who has the audacity
to say that those people are not a menace to our country is so grossly ignorant

Last week, the*Free-Press published
an interview with )a."gentleman: who
had just returned^frorri.British Columbia
in which the statement,was made; that
the real cause of the labor shortage in
thrirproviiVcewas the failure "■ of "'ihe
ivliite workers to do their duty, proper--;
ly, and'to the, attitude, of; the trades
unions, which oppose the introduction
of anyclass of labor, evert, though ,itc be
while and,British.      '-.       . . ,-."
Confirmation of this theory is given
by'-a special correspondent of the Western Mail,, Cardiff, Wales, wlio was a
member of one of the English -journalists'parties of last summer, and Who
makes a statement which'apparently
substantiates the charge frequently
made against labor unions ...that they
oppose white, immigration" to Canada.
It appears that.efforts liave,recently
been made on behalf of ,lhe Crow's
Nest Pass coal mines to induce'1 Welsh
coal miners to come out and work in
the mines'al Fernie. This'effort - has
been immediately followed, by - a
* .warning^VfronV thei mineral-. iioion^ of
Fernie, addriesscd lb-' tlie "British Mine
;WOTkers,<noi-.to come to jthat ^district.;
' "-The correspondent, "who^has" visited
Fernie and met Welsh, miners' families
living there, describes theif' condition
and proves that their lot is both happier and better in Fernie than it ever
was in Wales. Then he asks very pro-
perjy.and pointedlyjf those who are .re-
sponsible' for the warning would want
to go b,ick and live in: Wales, and adds
that there.isastnack;pjf. selfishness, in
the attitude of men who would advise
their fellows in the old land to keep'
away, frorna.country whererthey thenj.-
selves are.dQing.well      ,'"'--      *
-, The.union people.are'not'unlike'boys
in a raspberry slash, who,' when they
find a gc^.'.'bush''jwarij to keep,all
the pther^boys.away from it., ..British
Columbia is not the private preserve of
either labor- unionists or the einplovers
of cheap Oriental labor.,;    It must be
i... - .,--,.-        .   ,
open'to'£.1 white men if >it,.is., to;.be
closed, to,Orientals. .* If it is to be closed
labor.unions, then 'those '' who want
cheapOnental labor are provided with
the strongest possible argument for
using it and also with vone: against the
unions themselves. This attitude of
the labor unions at this time is a dan*
gerous one, . It is inimical to bot{i~ the
'.cause.of Asiatic exclusion and unionism
itself.—Ottawa Free Press. *"

of the population, and whichever ticket
secures their vote Is sure of election.
There are several parlies thai are
asking for voles.
The Republican party now ha:*, a
majority of the council and the mayoralty, No one has ever licensed this
party of doing anything for labor. In
this city it hat. handed over nil public
utilities to private corporations, with
Ihe powur to exploit the people of Chicago for years to come, The Republican parly bus placed the hchools In the

when Hearsi'pretended lo.be a great
friend of labor. He was never anything
more than a pretence in "this" respect
and now"bchns thrown o(Tthe*disguise.*
In Boston he is fighting, the newsboys-
union and has been denounced hy the
Central Labor union of that city. ;; He
has praised the decisions of the supreme
court that were designed to disrupt, and
destroy tbe trade'union,, movement, of
the country. A vote, for Hearst's Independence (?) League is a vote for the
disruption of organised labor and tho
support of tabor's foe.
All three of these parlies arc alike in
that they are maintained bv -the employers of labor, hy those who live from
the exploitation of the working, class,
A vole for any of them is a vote to
place the city government of Chicago
in the hands of those whose interest il
is that the wages should he low, hours
long nnd profits high.
The .Socialist pnrlv also conies inlo
the field asking for the votes of the
workci-s. Il asks for the votes of no
oilier class because II does not pretend
to..defend the interests of nny other
class; .
1 The Socialist party is not owned or
;iipporled by'; tho employing class,
There js no meiiiher of the Umplovcrs'
association or the Citizens' alliance
who gives a penny to its campaign
fund.   No other party can say this,
ThoRoclnlUt parly Is supported by
Hie contributions of worUlngmon and
women- Whoever pays the cainpnlgn

Therefore th" Socialist party In tho
only party owned by the worki.ru. '

that comes Into this campiilun with nny
