assize court;
In New Court iiousc-Criinina!
List Appalling—Miscarriage:
. of Justice Startling to ,
General Public .
The Assizes .opened on Tuesday morning1 in the-now court house hero. Seven!
criminal cases arc on tho docket as well
ns a number of civil cases.« -Tho in-
'•rensc ot crime in the district is alarm-,
ing and some of the cuses .that were
dismissed M>om' to show how lightly, it
is looked upon. It lsnu very tender subject to write on, but we feel strongly
that there is something amiss somewhoro
when such enseb as the l)unlo|i cuso •' is
dismissed. Tho judge of, courso bad to-
givo his decision Recording to law while
many s-com to think tint tho . accused
was not nt all  free from blame.
The Assizes were opened by rudgc Irving, of Victorin, and in bis opening remarks to the "■ grand
jury, dwelt upon their duties as
jurymenj He also spoke of the great
progress Fernie had made a. a city. He.
complimented them on the fine court
house they had. lio said it behooved
them to see to the sanitary conditions
of    the    jail   ns  it  wns  bad   enough   for
- prisoners to  be  in  jail  without riing in
somo  reeKiiig- |nuui.  „J.ne jails, had   seen
gonfi through in- Vancouver and were
found to be in a very insanitary condition. He also gave great creditcto Fernie for,, the very smarts fire brigade they
possessed. Ho was at the 'c-rnie hotel
when tho fire hnppcncd nt Suddaby's
drug store, and spoke in ..very eulogistic
terms of the promptness with which
they turned out on'thit occasion and

The case is still fresh iu the :uinds of

at the steam laundry wheu* the alleged
seduction took - place. Dunlop .' nd the
girl were stopping at Hobichaud's
boarding house 'at the time..'The girl's
evidence was given in closed iourt on

evidence on Thursday morning. - Dunlop

nothing to corroborate.tho girl's evidence
und they could not take tho idenco of

The Elk Drug and Book Store Company's temporary quarters at the' corner of Victoria and Wood .streets owas
burned on Monday evening. The estimated gross loss is thirty-two thousand
jlo.IlarsJ_w.ithiinsuranco_of_ono thousand.
The fire was caused by.„ the careless
handling of fireworks by a boy customer
who re-entered the store with a rocket
that "ho had lit, but had not discharged.
Tho boy thought it was' no good and
carried ■ it ,back to the store, Tho fuse
was a.-, very slow one and tho rocket discharged in' tho store and fired the othor
stock of firecrackers. Tho - blazo was
short, sharp and decisive, but so also
was tho work.-of our'fire' brigade, who
in the words of Caesar, camo, sano and
conquered' in 'short 'order. 'There " were
three people slightly hurt at this flro,
This accident should make everyone
moro careful in tho handling and discharge of fireworks.

PougVikeepsfe, May 29—Harry K. Thaw
has-'accepted, apparently with resi:nation, "the decision of Supreme Codit Justice, jMorchau.-.i'i-, iiw.ji.i- i-" still insane,
and that the interests of tbe public will
bo best served by denying him liberty.
Pending tbe signing of the papers of
recommitment, which probably will not
be done before a week from noxt Saturday Thaw will' occupy •jr.harlff Chuudler'a
suite in tho county building" -Meanwhile
an elTort will bo made by Thaw's attorneys to induce District AttOmey .1 cranio to sonsent to tho committment of
the prisoner to one of the state jdsplt-
nls other than, Mattoawan. D      '
It Is said that in event of Sir. Jerome
giving his- consent to such-a change, no
appeal* will be taken, from "Justice Mor-
scbauser's decision. ■    -'0
Even If an appeal were taken it could
not bo.orguod- before fall'.' After his attorney had shown him a copy of Judge
Morschauscr's decision, Thaw gave the
reporters an interview "and talked volubly about bis case, and on everything except his wife, and when her sult~for div-
oce was mcniiouea ho stood up ond intimated that the interview was at an
end. Ills chief, theme wns tho newspaper'
reports of the evidence on this' trial.,'
Much testimony favorable to him, he
asserted,,was notfpublished, prol-obly localise, it,did not appear to tbe reporters
interesting, while undo prominence was
given Mr.' Jerome's cross examination of
Thaw experts because Jerome knew how
to make it interesting. "   ,
, Justice Morschauser's decision is in
part ns. follows: , j . --'
"Upon application duly made, a writ
of habeas corpus was" allowod by which
llany Kv Thaw, was directed to .lie produced in court. In'the petition it is al-
ledged that said ..Thaw is illegally 'imprisoned and restrained of his liberty by
Ames 'IV Baker, acting superintendent of
tbo Mattoawan- stabo hospital, a state
institution   for-the  insane.,
Thaw's detention is'attacked upon the
ground:        , , ""'     *
First—That he is now sane.
sions of which he was committlcd and
detained is unconstitutional" and; the
court was without jurisdiction to- issue
tho'order of committment and such order
was ,null and'void.      •-   '-,
The return to th* writ alleges that
the said Thaw -is now Insane and that
the statute providing for confinement of
said Thaw ' is constitutional and valid
and that tho court had' Jurisdiction to
make  tho  order of committment,'    The'
return   Irs   l* uYwinea   liy * tn« • ■ alatui*.    ---1'-
The events leading up to the committment of Thaw, are,  in brief;
On Juno 25, 1900, Thaw shot and
killed ono Stanford White. lie was indicted for-this act in the county of Now
York and tho indictment charged lilm
with murder In tho first degree. On January 23,, 1007, ho was brought to trial
on this indictment and during proceedings of this trial, on application of tho
district attorney under section 0.18 of
tho code of criminal procedure, a commission wns appointed to aftcortaln whether at tlio time of tho trial .-Id Thaw
was In a'stato of Idiocy, or InsniYjty, so
ns to bo Incapabio of rightly understanding his own condition, tho nature of
tho charge against him nnd of conducting his dofonco In ix rational mnnnor,
"Tho commissioners afterwards returned .to tho court that It was their opinion
that at tho timo of thoir oxamlnntlon
said Thaw wnB sano and wns capable of
undorstnndlng his own condition nnd tho
nnturo of tho chargo against him and
conducting his defence In a rational
manner, This conclusion was reported
In accordance with tho purpose of thu
statute, Tho trial procoedod and resulted In tho dlsngrooinont of tho Jury. On
tho sixth of January, 1008, snld Thaw-
was iignln tried on thn sub) Indictment
nud nci|ii|ttcd 011 thn ground nf insanity,
"Thereupon tho learned Justice presiding nt tho trial, made nn ardor, reciting
tho verdict nnd thnt tho court thought
thnt tho discharge of snld Thaw nt thnt
timo to bo dnngorous to public safoty
and directing that said Thaw bo iletnliiod
In snfe custody and bo sont to thn Mot-

Thnw, ut tha timo of his trial for

nnd proKOntr-d proof to show his Insanity
at. thn tlmn of tbo killing of White, and,
by the proof offered on his bi'hnlf, tho
Jury was convinced that hn was Insane
and nrmilttPd lilm upon that ground.
I nm satisfied from tho ovldnnre adduced before 1110 that Iho montnlly condition nf Hurry K. Thaw hus not clinng*

The iuter-provlncial convention of S?o-
, clalbt organisations ol II.  C. and. A.lher->
la  vvus hold iu Iho Minors* Hall, Formo,
H.  C,  commencing "ut eleven a.  in.    .n
Satilrday,   May    "23rd,   A   largo  number
ol delegates wero present from both!pro-
*vln«C8.   Tho   proceedings  at   the  opening
J were, mainly roncorned with the nppolnt-
-in'ont   of  conunltteos  on  credentials  and
Ih'occriuie,     'and    receiving-assessinents ;
opening speeches,., etc.   After rocess for
lunch'the1 convention reconvened at  two
p. !u.,vwhen moro delegates''arrived   rho
presented   their    credentials     and    wero
seated.   Dominion secretary's report was
received and referred to committees along
' with   those     of    Finnish, - Slavonic and
, English organisers, Tho proposal that
the party obtain possession of the West-.,
-- ern Clarion was warmly adopted anl u
committee niminated to submit' proposals
to tho'managing, of the paper.' It was
decided to send K. T. Kingsley, editor
of, the Western' Clarion to Calgary oh
May 27th, und to Winnipeg May 29th,,
thereafter he will be atv. the disposal of
the Ontario. Western Executive ''Committee during the political campaign now
iii progress there, then going to Quebec,'
and on his return trip io speak' nt every
,   possible    point.   -The      best   method  of'
., spending the party's funds caused a good
deal' of discussion, also that of raising
same, but methods satisfactory to all
present wero recommended and adopted,'
to be ratified • by a . referendum vote. ,. A
notable feature arrived at was the deci-'
sion to hit-bnck at those employers who
make  it al' point ;to discriminate agaiust
' Socialists. As the. party has a '• strong
representation and is sure to become still
stronger, they will undoubtedly be fully
Competent to make it interesting . for
those gentlemen. The reports of tho organisers both .English and foreign speaking were without exception refreshing
and encouraging," showiing^'that i il over
the Canadian .West the message of-Socialism is receiving eager attention from
wage earners and larmiers, resulting in
rapid     spreading t of   Socialist   organisa-
Another'feature of..the proceedings was
the. action taken by "the convention in
referring hack to tho committee dealing
with same a resolution with reference to
tho proposed amendment' to the Dominion Election ' Act. The, resolution cited
tho clauses objected to .-..id <all°j in the
wage earners in case It became low to'
resist its enforcement, and refuse .to
allow tho votes to be counted, if any of
thorn wero deprived of their votes, until
tltelr right to voto iwns rccognisiv'.. -It
provoked , considerable, discussion "and
was finally referred bnck to the com-
mUteo to bo redrafted to express moro
odocttvely nnd emphatically the sentiment of Jthe party. The convontlon ad-'
journed at ten p. m. till nine i„ m. on
Sunday, .
Tho session on .Sunday considered tho
question of propaganda ,ln Mbortn, Al-
' hfirUx comrades " wero advised to form
their headquarters nt Cnlgary for tho
present, nnd tho method employed by
tho purty. in It. C. of olecting tlielr pro
vincial executive committee recommended
as the most oxpedious, efficient und economical manner of handling party business, . Tlie convention adjourned at
12.HO p. in, till 7 p. in. in order to attend a'' mass meeting, iu tho-opera houso
to be addressed bli K. T. Kingsley and
others. " ,
New delegates arrived from Alberta
during tho evening session nnd were
seated. Uecommendations of the committee on the Western Clarion "as to tho
method by which tho circulation "could
be Increased were discussed aud wltli a
very  few  alterations  passed,
A motion to'the elTect that the party
lake up the work of educating the children along Socialist lines was'turned
down''' the convention being of tho opinion thnt every Socialist who had children was not worth his salt if he did
not attend to'it himself. The committee
on resolutions recommended the following resolution dealing with tho proposed
amendment to the.Dominion. Election
Act, which met with approval. ','Where-,
as the government of Manitoba has already disfranchised large number of electors in order to still further fortify itself in power, and whereas it is' a matter of current report that the above government proposes to amend tho Election
Act as to place still further obstruction
in the way of a full and a,free exercise
of the, franchise by the Canadian electorate in order to retain its hold on tho
reins of power, therefore, be it resolved,
'That we the' Socialist party of Canada
in convention., assembled urge . upon - the
working class of Canada to use force at
its command, to frustrate all,-attempts
tb further restrict tho .franchise and if it
becomes nei-KJsary to resort to extreme
measures to affect its purpose."
The locals of Oraml Forks. Fernie and
Nelson will ■' have the duty 0f routing
speakers' through their respective districts
ers, relieving the executive committee on
the coast of-their duty.
The. Finnish Socialist'paper 'Tyokausa'
and the Ukrainian Socialist paper 'The
guns of 'the Socialist party of Canada
in their respective languages. The convention then adjourned until n'ne a. m.
on , Monday morning.  '
On Monday It was -decided that the
locals in the boundary country coi''i*-.unl-
catc with each other for the iiirposo of
electing a candidate to contost tho Yale-
Cariboo constituency. In this connection
tho Dominion secretary -eported that
tho party was running eighteen candidates in tho Ontario provincial elections
lind for the' Dominion "oloel'ions flvo out
of seven seats in II. C. would ho contested; three In. Montreal and, a largo
number throughout tho Dominion.- With
tho adoption of tho financial report of
tho convention the session was brought
to an .end with the singing of tho *Mnr-
sollnls'.and 'Tollers'  Arlso,'
Tt is -worthy of noto that throughout
tho convention tho feeling of unity of
aim and purpose In 'the party was, so
solid that on tho fow occasions' whon n
voto was taken proxies,,were novor called
for. •" " '     " . ■

whys be ■' so" In those days tho only
freedom a working man or "slavo" had
was his freedom for profit. Ho stated Un
wns down in Seattle a while ago, where
he saw a number of people standing' in
the street. He went clown to see what
it' was, when he discovered that it was
a' bunch, of workmen or slaves standing
around a'bill board, just like cattle,, to
see bow much their, particular ■ labor
was worth, to their masters'. The death -
of'capital would hot mean, the closing
down of the mines, the railways'' and
workshops but would "mean that they
would not be run for profit, but 'in. the
interests of = labor; it would only mean
a transfer of " property. The * Unite.!
States Steel Corporation had a capital
of Sl,a6o,000,000. ' He wo'.ihl bet
that .that was moro than all we follows
had put together. Its annual. rate of
profit had ~ not been less than ton per
cent. If that is, so then it in certainly
worth ten times the■%amount. They
owned' lnrge steel mills, railways, smelters,, mines and all apparatus that , f n-
earthand turn it into the finished pro-
ubled them to take tho ore out of'tho
duct. Could ' it bo possible that- thai
was worth one billion three ^hundred
million dollars? Let- the whistles blow
in the morning al the mines, mills etc.,
and about one ■ hundred and sixty thousand slaves will make, their appearance,
and will lay. their hands upon the "tools'
This took place shift after shift, and' at
tho~ end cf the week the slave would
come up-to the oflice to get ,his oata -
nine dollars, eight dollars, .*-even~dollars
as the cose may be. It vw.as equivalent
to  what  the chattel  slavery  was.  After

'tin horns.' Now- if no workmen would'
be induced to work for the company tomorrow morning,, would "it bo. worth one
billion, three hundred million dollars.
No, it would not (be worth'ten-cents. It
is the labor 'that the C.N.P.C, Co gets
ont of the hides and carcasses of its
slaves that makes it *a capitalist property. It has been issued and protected by
a capitalist govornment. When you take
up a paper and read of tho splendid

Its returns and dividends you aro reading of how' capitalists havo run profll
out of your hides.
The power of production was so groat
unilor the capitalist systom, that it
could not bo used up. If capital would,
allow the slaves to produce just what
tho capitalists required for their, own
uso,, and allowod thorn to labor for their-
own use thoy might live a .'ittlo lengor.
Tho power created by capital Is actually
strangling itself. If you took a bunch
of capitalists and placed thon. on ono
side, thoy. would seem n very small
handful to the vast crowd o.f wo^o ijlnvo
onrnors. In tiiw capital will bo oxtlnct
like tho gront m'nHtodons thnt used to
realm, over this earth. Tho hliives of today aro.kopt under subjection by a
'mere handful of capitalists who have all

0The JliUs of the Gods grind slowly;
liut they grind exceedingly jure.
The, above Is very much in some peo-
peoplo minds just ot present. Tho realisation of the iatter words will surely fall
as a thunderbolt to-some of tho present
residents of our city.
The moral wave is slowly but - suroly
sweeping over us, and wo must not rush
to get out ol its way, but rather rush
to meet it, and swell its onslaught. Why
should gambling and other unlawful
things go on ■ in our midst? Simply because'we, as people-allow .thorn. Il wo
arise in a body and declare to our' authorities that we will have' nono of it
they cannot, help stamping these things
out. Any scnsiblo, right thinking man
will admit that a crusado against these
things is proper, and while somo, "for
business reasons'' feel .shy .about being
acknowledged  on  the Sfido of  tlio-   "right
, aguinst wrong,, still they ..will tell you
that thoy "believe you aro quite right."
Wo have ticcn credited'with being   -too
.sovei-o      oil    this  subject ond  by others
■ with not being severe enough. We ane
determined however,' to'keep e/cr and
anon at the good work',-, as .we carrdnilly
see ' the 'need of a change.    .•        <. , -
Some ask us why; becauso' the workers
whoin we . represent; as well as the citizens of Fernie and district are being
victimised day iu and day out by sharpers ,• apd , if. these open .gambling dens
were not allowed there would-bo less of
other crimes. - One leads to another and
as the evils are not necessary it is high
time we fell back on the lawsj that forbid      them     and force them out of our
■• sphere.   "      ,

utilised  to  stamp  out  the
many evils existing ,in our midst, We
have polios and police commissioners
who should carry out these laws. What
wo want now is a live" "Law Enforcement League." - The~othcrs"rwi!l then
have moro help to do their duty. »

A recreation ground whoro tho mass ol
tho people could go evory ovening, instead of standing on tho strcot corners,
congrogatlng in t.lib • hotels, and wander-
tug-, elsewhere .in tho search of "something to'do," would bo ono of tho most
active forcers to reduce the existing moral, phase, The throng, over rostlcss, over
6eoklng for amusements of some kind,
and eager to go a'nywhoro that thoir
thirst for change and rocroation Can bo
satisfied, are left to the evil habit . 61
"hanging around."
If there was • only "somo pla.-o to go,

This Is a' pliaso- of tho moral -wavo
that should bo taken up at onco by tho
•Authorities, by tho cUizons and .by tho
government as woll. Wo should be ablo
to \ havo ono ol the bost rocroation

Fate of Three Nclsonites While
• Crossing Kootenay River
Every year the  Kootyiiny river cluims,
its  toll of human  life.
Ou Sunday at noon thru.* more victims
wore added to the list of .hose who
found death in tho ri\er. John Miles,
known the protlnce over as "Paddy,"
Jack Sharpies and John Richmond.
An eye witness of the accident,' on/-* of
the omployees of the city power plant,
gives the fallowing account:
"We were Just sitting down to dinner
when some ono called out 'there comes
the-boat across' and looking, out I saw
thc-Totr l>oat used ns a ferry at Miles'
crossing,1 coming over. Paddy Miles was
rowing. Jack Sharpies was eitting in the
Stern and, a. young Englishman^ named
John Richmond was sitting In tho bow.
I noticed that tho boat was further
down stream than she should be for the
position where I saw her, but I did not
think much' about that' at the moment.
From where wo wero sitting I could see
■well up stream, but 'did not watch' the
boat after erst glancing, at it. We went
on witli our meal'and in a few moments
/'the cook came rushing in from the' kitchen screaming out 'They're going over
the falls' and we all rushed outside.
"By this time the row'Lost .with the
three men and two dogs on .board had
got into swift-water. Paddy was struggling, with all his might with the. Oars
in a vain attempt, to get. to shore, and
the frail craft was being swept steadily
■down stream, going more swiftAy every
second towards the edge of tho first
fall "As the rowboat came down In the
- rushing' waters just above the intake for
the city plant, Sharpies, seemed unable
to control himself longer and he made a
leap over the boat's side in a last frantic effort to swim to the shore so temptingly cloni ,at hand. .Sharpie's leap upset the boat °and all three men were
seen .struggling in the '' water. Paddy
Miles managed cto ' drag himself up on
the'bottom of the upturned boat" and all
three men were eUc-n struggling in the
water. Paddy Miles managed to drag
himself up on  the 'upturned  boat -    and
round 'athlete] having played football for
,the local. team in several matches, . He
was at, one time an instructor in the
Coldstream Guards and served in the1
recent South African "war. He was about
thirty-five years of age and.un.tiarncd.  '
.John Richmond.was a yoann' 1'nglish-
TVSan', twenty-two years-of a.!fc* ond w.
married. He only'came to Kootenay recently but.has'.relatives in the old .country.    ' ' .. " ' '

instantly killed yesterday afternoon at
half past two while loading somo holes
in a slope on tho eleventh level of the
Centre Star mine with a new powder
willed Mitchellite,
John T. Jones, timberman, was handing Powers the powder whilo he loaded
the holes] three of which had be*n leaded and tho fourth was being loaded as
the explosion occurred. Powers head
was partially blown offhand his. body filled with small pieces of rock and a large
gash on tho neck cut tho jugular vein.
Jones wns thrown several feet and landed on.the floor below the stop© on which
the explosion occurred but was not seriously hurt. >-.
Tlie powder had been experimented
with for about, two weeks by tho mine
management and stood many tests. It
had been ground so fino that, it would
pass through a forty-mesh scr.ijn -nnd
had been thrown' against the iron radiator without exploding. >
A coroner's jury to-day found that the
cause of the explosion was the friction
of jngged ' rocks in tho hole which had
been fired by- the shift which woiked on
Saturday . night. . "   ,   ,'
Powers wns an old miner <-.nd hnd been
shiit boss and-foreman In Kosslxnd for

any wonder rthat the behavior ol1 men
who: are,nominally christians, (.lu'istluns
in profession" if-' not''in- brnbtlcd,' • has
checked thu spread of Christianity? The
missionary comes preaching a- gospel _f,
justice and love and peace. Hut when
the, natives sec how men behave who
profess tlie-religion which tho missionary preaches the preachings lose their
value. An African chief -Js said to have
described,,tho process of the contact of
civilised men with these people in these
words, "First ' missionary, then trader,
then army." It is not too' much to say
that the lives tof men nominally christians havo been Mho greatest ot all hindrances to the spread of the, gospel,
- Whnt. then, is our duty as citizens ' of
christian nations who desire to.see, tho,
light of  the gospel  illumine  tho world?
The force of public opinion ought to
support governments in keeping a strict
watch upon all those who try to,exploit
tho native, cither by getting hold of his
laud or by trading with him. It ought
to insist on the absolute prohibition of
tho sale of drink  to natives.
It ought to secure full justice for the
native when ho brings complaints out
against those who try to injure him by
force or fraud. It ought to punish sev-
eioly those who abuse the' power of a
superior race, and above all,, thos« who
demoralise it by tho sale of liquor or
who, ns sometimes happens," behave ill"
to native women. It ought to be"our *lm
lo compel those who go forth from, among
us into non-chrlslian races to set a.'bettor example of conduct worthy 'of civilised men than many have done. This
time, in which we live' Is a critical time,
not only critical for ourselves, but .critical for tho relations of the advanced to
the semicivilised peoples.—The Industrial-

Winnipeg, May 27—Clodius Juffet, editor of a- St. Boniface paper was arrested on Saturday charged with perjury.
This is the climax of rather a pocullar
case. Last month'as'a defence against

penny ttiho'ol in, Liverpool," he, rays,
"TOVn l'i'ice 1 was when 1 was superintendent ot out* Sunday, School, aniTplain
Tom Price 1 am to-day when I am premier of feouth  Australia." '
jMi-^ Price is' visiting England to represent his country at thu great" Franco-
British exhibition which Is being held'
this summer and incidentally to -look
after tho relloating of a South Austral-,
ian government loan of ..twenty million
dollars which falls due at the end' of
this year. London society, always,, anxious for a new sensation, has seized on
the working-man prime minister and • he
is the lion of tho" season. Dinners' and
receptions follow cadi other- So rapidly
that he .declares hi? has hardly time * to
think, but throughout it all he remains
•'Plain , To:n Price,," the, shrewd, hurd
headed Welsh working-man who has put
Socialism to-a practical lest in tlw? colonies whose destinies he guides.,
"Plain Tom Price" is a flender man
of -w fifty '= six, with' white hair, shrewd
grey eyes, aiid a trick of looking right,
al1, '■ or rather' through one as he talks.'
You ' feel 'su,re that-'there is very little
use trying to deceive him, for his-eyes
seem ■ to • bore right'in,,and "convey your
thoughts'.to bis mind. This feeling, .is
strengthened by tlie startling way which
his answers and questions anticipate your.-
unspoken thoughts,,Perhaps this is one of
the'socrots of his success. ^ He, himself,
insists that the only secrets which have
aided him to his present position are
work and grita s
"The apostle of work' and grit," -Ho
calv\s himself, and he admits that ho. has
been a' little of a suri)rise=tol some^^^oT
the British Socialistc who_ spend more
time about the wrongs of Jthe • •• working
Ti3ai"r"than™in'*"a33isting- him-toHjetler-'his'
condition. '- lie" has*' nothing but contempt, ,too, for the workingman who
talks more; than he works. ■•
A few days'after' his arrival he was
taken by John BuniB, the president of
the local government board, utnrai.'U nn
ex-labor leader,<to'sce how >me of'tho
unemployed were made useful m T'-unki-
pal1 improvements, Ur. Price watched
the men at: work for a while
and thon he turned'to Mr. Hums in disgust.' "It's all ,viTy well, John," . he
sata ,',*'to., flnil work for. these ' follows,
but why don't you' mako,them, earn their
pay? If 1 had them in South' Australia
1 would hustle them up a bit."

that this is the lowest "sum that a man'"

believe in the kind of compulsory arbitration that' has been adopted by somo
ofthe Australian states. We. do not like
the1 lawyer and tho judge to interfere in
matters that ought to be talked out and
settled between masters aiid men.. Our
plan, is to have the masters and men in
every, trade organised, and in each trade
there is a, permanent arbitration board
consis-ting of five elected representatives
of the men and five of the masters, with
a chairman appointed by the government.
All.- disputes ' were brought before this
board, which is compelled to take; into
account'the cost of living, the labor supply and other - factors in fixing a minimum wage, while on the other hand it
must allow the master a fair interest on
his capital and a fair wage for his work
of., superintendence.' The. minimum wage
in all'trades is fixed, at SI.75 a'day. Ii,
cither one party or-the .other refuses to
agree to the arbitrator's award then the
court steps iii and comes down on the
funds of the offending' organisation.'

"Plain Tom Price'" explained all those
astonishing advances toward Socialism
as if thoy i were tho-:most matter ,of fact
things in the world and in fact th!ey are
to him. His .conception of the function
of government is -that it exists primarily for the purposo of promoting the happiness and comfort of.Its citizens, and to
him the id*a of n government not doing
anything which scorned necessary to this
end bocausoof-somu doctrinaire principals unconceivable.       „
The transparent honesty of tho man,
combined with his shrewd, common aehso
and business ability seasoned 'with a dash
of tho Celtic lire which ho inherits from
his Welsh ancestors, makes him"a striking character. No ono can talk to Sir,
1'rjco for half an hour without nal'SIng
that he is,one of tho,world's a rent, men.
^'Wo nro not afrnld of tho word Socialism,," ho said. You can cnll it ■ nything
