expected. ' The Unionists gained 19
seats, the Liberals four and the Laborites one, making a net gain for the
Unionists for the day of fourteen,,one
less than they gained at."fewer elections oh Saturday. .It is practically,

Managing Director'of Harrod's Stores
Is Named as man to Fix up
Shop Methods
LOSD-OX, Jan.'17—There have been
no del'hiire developments as yet in connection with the Hudson's Bay board.
One or more resignations are regarded
as'certahii.bil-C Lord Strathcona is very
unlikely to retire.
Every member of the board is most
reticent but it looks as though the
tussle centred around the position of
deputy governor, now held by ,Lord
Litchfield. The suggestion that has
been made In a London journal that
Sir Thomas Shaughnessy should nominate two directors Is* regarded as ridiculous. "
' Richard Burbide, managing director
of Harrod's stores, has been*, spoken of
as a possible.new director;, he being
specially charged with suggested reforms that are considered necessary in
the shop methods.

' Doctors had much to do. with the

opponent,.was-i^C/j'-AMIsbn", a famous consulting surgeon. • n Hay on the
platform; made disparaging remarks
about the profession, and as a result
the whole fraternity turned out to

The Liberals also won back the adjoining constituencies of Haggerston,
the Hon. R., Guinness, Unionist, being
defeated by H. G. Chancellor.
\ The Unionist leaders who ran today
included A. B.* Balfour;-A. Bonar Law,
Walton Hume Longhand Sir Wm. Bull

with a heckler at Hammersmith, who

Admiral' Lord Charles Beresford and
B. G.'.Fill both being,elected by, huge
votes,. 16"i777 and 15,592 respectively.
The; polling was remarkably close,
however in many constituencies, H.
E. DuKe;j;he noted.barrister won Exeter from the Liberals by the narrow
majority of 26, while in the Peckham
division, of.' Camberwell, Henry Cubitt
Gorch, who secured a majority *. of
more than 2555 in the recent bye-election retains his seat by a bare one
hundred.. _"  .
One.- Liberal retained his seat by a
majority of only 10.
The- general' view of today's battle
bears out' the forecast. The north
is solid" for tbe government. The. midlands section and especially in the vicinity of:' Birmingham favors tariff reform.
The victory of the Unionists at Wal-
salt points- to. an extension of Joseph
Chamberlains* influence In that portion.-^ -. -
The Metropolis, which after the
bye-elections* which all went in favor
of the,Unionists-was expected to make
a clean turn* over, is displaying a remarkably slight?, variation in represen:

The Lion and tho Mouse, the celebrated play by the'great American-author, Charles Klein, will be presented:'
at tho Grand Theatre by the Summer-
Stock Company on Monday, January
24". Miss Belle Stevenson will Interpret the role of Shirley Rossmore, the
girl who discovers the human side* of
the great tsust manipulator. Mr Blake
will appear in the character of Mr.
John Btinket Ryder, one of the strongest parts In recent dramatic literature.
The Lion and the Mouse is a masterpiece of the' play master. It is not
only tremendously strong In Its scenes
especially at ■ the closo of the third,
when Shirley Rossmore struggles with
the Octupus for tho life and honor of
hor father, but the wholo of tho piece
has served a great purposo ln tho way
of acquainting tho people of this continent with the great manipulators of
finance. For all men have hearts. Mr
Ryder appears to not havo, nnd to further the endti of liln business he does
uot stop at Htoallng the honor of a
grand old judge. Up to recent yonrs
the predominant note of American business has boon "business,,for business
sake," BtisineHH method Justified its
own emlH, or rather the end justified
the meaiiH, In tlie mind nf the man in
charge. The muck-rakers got busy,
and Mr, Klein wrote The Lion and tho
Mouse, The play, more than all tho
muck-rakeiH, Iiiih softened tho harsh
note of American IjiihIiiohh. ft has
awiikened the buslnesii conscience to
the realization of tlm fact that, business crimen for profit's sago are ethically wrong, lint, the play Ih no Herman, no editorial. It Is a nt niggle of
gliintH for right and wrong and tho result Is most gratifying. The company

- Dr. Lyman Abbott of Xew York carried a few coals to Newcastle the other day.
He went to Xew Haven and warned
the young men there not to become
Socialists. He praised the steel trust
for its kindness to its employees. He
then attacked the Sugar Trust becauso
it was'stealing dishonestly.
He spoke on many things indeed and
especially laid emphasis on the fact
that it was-better to have Carnegie
as a boss than Croker.
' Croker is, in his mind, a Socialist
boss, Carnegie a good capitalist boss.
He did not suggest, that as things are
now we, have the pleasure of working
under both of these bosses, Carnegie
and Crooker.
He did not intimate that wherever
there are bosses like Carnegie there
are also bosses like Croker. Me did
not suggest that if it, were not for

The above editorial in the'Union Advocate of Oklahoma shows that the

the colossal proportions which King
Morgan has assumed in the world of
finance. But the editor, while seeing
effects, seems to have lost sight ofthe
cause which makes it possible for men
like Morgan to become as powerful, if
not more so than, the government of
the United States.
Morgan is a man of brilliancy and
genius, and he has realized long ago
that competition means death, and he
also sees that co-operations means life

Instead of competing with other institutions, Morgan effects combinations, whereby waste is eliminated and
more profit added to the bank accounts of the fortunate ones who are

Great Inventor Sees Great Changes in
the Lot of the Working
■'Thomas A. Edison sees in'the future
a great change in the conditions of tlie
.laboring man. Through cheapening
of commodities and domination of labor it will be possible for the laboring
man ,of the future to Uveas well as
men who now have $200,000 income.
Mr:* Edison says in the current issue
of th'e Independent:
"In 200 years, by the cheapening of
commodities, the ordinary laborer will
live as well as a man does now with
$200,000 annual income. Automatic machinery and scientific agriculture will
bring about this result. Not, individualism but social labor'will dominate
'ihe future; you can't have individual
machines and every "man working*by
■bimself. . Industry will constantly become more social arid interdependent.
There will be no manual labor iri the
factories of the future. The men in
them will be merely-superintendents,
watching the machinery to see that it
_ works properly.       -■
Eight   Hours  Brain :Work
"The. work day, I believe,, will.be
■eight, hours.. ' Every ..man' needs that
chief and to keep him happy. But it
will be work with the brain, something
that men will be interested inland
done in wholesome, pleasant surroundings. Less .and less man will be used

It was sometime along in December
I remember so. well tiie night   .
That the message looked so inviting
And I thought what a future in sight.
With footsteps I quickly hastened
To impart to a friend the glad news
And he said, It does look enticing
I will go along with you.
So we packed up our choicest belongings,
And with joyful hearts wo left home
But since we've arrived in Fernie.
We wonder; oh' why did we come?
We, left the sun shining brightly,
Where the wheat and the Banner
Oats grow.
The first thing we met in dear Fernie
■ Was a fail of beautiful snow.
We've  been  here  eight weeks  if a
minute, .
Believe'it or not as you will.
The sun has not shone since we've
been here,
And we don't expect that it ■ will.
The'snow it's, just something   dreadful,    ,
The way it comes ,down it's a fright
It not only snows in the. daytime,   „
But' all through the long,    gloomy
And then to break the monotony,
Down comes a shower  of rain,
We have stood in tbe line of battle
And faced the terrible din,'
.But our courage almost fails us
As we sit .in"this dreary cabin.
The candle is burning lower
We are lonesome, homesick, but sane
If ever.we get out of Fernie      '<,
We'll never be back here again.
The greatest, chore that we have
Is getting stovewood in,
For  when  we  step  outside of    the

And we are not those little dwarfs
Such as you ,see in the shows,
For we just' measure six foot straight
Up to our very nose.
We have often stood and wondered
Is it merely just a chance
When we see some dressed in broadcloth,
While we've patches on our pants,
We have always been a'doing,
Working early, working late,"
But by poverty surrounded
Always seems to be our fate.
We'll draw these ^lines now to a close,
For it is snowing still,
We do not care if it never stops
In fact we hope it never will. .
The editor, we ask his patience he will

For in these lines we know full well
The truth has all been told.

- This is the experience of a lady

Twenty-four Men Perish-
One Survivor Left
to Tell Tale
MARSHFIELD, Ore. Jan. 20—Scores
of watchers are today patrolling the
beach in the hope that some of the
bodies of the "twenty-four victims of
the wrecked steamer. Czarina may drift
■in shore.   ■    „
Up until 10 o'clock this morning not
a body had come tb shore, although
yesterday the"viscera of one poor fellow, whose body had been torn as-
sunder in the wreck, floated in. Do-
spite the assertions of the lifo savers
that none of the bodies will ever be
recovered the friends and relatives of
the crew are still watching and keeping up hope.
C. J. Mills, general manager of the
Southern Pacific interests here is prostrated today over the death of his only
son Harold who was one of the last to
leave the wreck. Millis was one of
the watchers on the beach where he
had done vigil for 25 hours and was
a witness to his son waving a farewell
to the. crowd on the shore and then
diving into the turbulent sea together
with three others who" had clung to
the rigging for hours.
Although the storm,* which sent the
Czarina reeling on the* North spit had
greatly subsided today, all that. can
be seen of the big vessel is the main
To all appearances the wrecked boat
is lying in almost the identical spot
in which it was thrown on Wednesday
by the great combers which played one
after another upon it with death dealing force. '   -■>  . .'
There is no doubt that the vessel
will be totally wrecked, if it is not already so and seafaring men say today
that there is nothing that can be done
but to leave the hulk to the mercy of
the waves. '*•
First ■ Assistant" - Engineer Harry
Kentzell, the lone survivor of the
wreck, is almost entirely recovered to-

eye where he was struck by driftwood
and a number of minor -bruises, he is
little the worse for his two hours in
the surging sea.
Kentzell today says that he owes
his life to a spar to which he clung
after diving from the steamer deck.
When the spar was tossed ashore,
Kentzell's' insensible form was gripping the spar.    ,
t, It< required one hour's work by the
life savers to release Kentzell's legs
and arms from the wreckage which,
he had gripped like a vise.

An illiterate individual, whose opinions are the result of listening to the
iterated and reiterated expressions of
those whom he has been* taught to regard as his superiors, is to be pitied
if he re-echoes fallacious ideas with
that dogmatic assertiveness which is
frequently the handmaid of ignorance;
the remedy for this is enlightenment
ihrough the medium of education,
.The superficial thinker absorbing
his knowledge somewhat akin to thc
manner In which in imbibes his morning coffee, i.e., by gulps, who may
follow a line of reasoning extracted
from the daily papei; that de deems
possesses' convincelvness bcciUise of
its reputation, Is excusable for the
faith he has for, this belief. Both
these types, exceedingly numerous in
' human society, are as plastic as putty
in the hands of those who exploit them
to further their own peculiar selfish
interests, but that the edito'r of a daily
paper enjoying an international repute
should resort to such* despicable tactics is evidence of'a pusillanimity that
can neither be palliated nor condoned
but merits,as severe a castigatioh as
it is possible to mete out to one who
prostitutes his high office in order
to cast aspersions on a party which,
' according to Mommseui the great Ger-,
man historian, is the only one ■ today
that has a vaison d'etre for its existence.
It. was recently heralded through the
press that James Simpson, Socialist,
had been elected 'chairman of the
Toronto  school   board,  and  that the
—only—RomaiuCatholi „ member present
Mr. \V. Dineen, voted for him. This
item. brought forth an editorial ..comment from The Globe of Toronto, Jan.
Ilth issue: 'A Socialist has been elect-
" ed President of the Board of Education by the casting vote of a member
who enjoys his privilege by virtue of
' being the largest ratepayer. This may
help to reconcile the Socialists to the
denounced rule of property for property owners have apparently* no fear
of the desire for a new division of
wealth.' ' Note the covert attempt by
Insinuation to perpetuate that exploded fallacy' of "dividing up" which has
been so persistently denied not only
by Socialists, but also by others who
have opposed the philosophy, and it
must be acknowledged by impartial
observers that the purpose of the concluding clause Is to befog its readers;
yet if they will stop to analyse the
sentence, even cursorily, they cannot
full to recognize that it, carries a tacit
contradiction from the fact thai the
writer realizes that property owners,
by the act alluded to, refute his assertion. Were this not so palpable wo
would havo suggested a certain courso
of study, but under the circumstances
It would be Love's Labor Lost.
A fatal accident occurred in the
shaft mine of the Consolidated Coal
Company here on Saturday the 15th,
in which Eli Vergnes lost his life by
being crushed between a coal car and
the chute. The unfortunate young
man had 'only been working in the
mine a few days. , Vergnes was employed as a driver drawing coal to the'
cage at the,bottom bf the shaft. How
the accident actually happened is
not known as he was dead when found
pinned between the car and the chute.
The funeral took place at Blairmore
on Sunday the lGth. The verdict before Coroner Pinkney was*. That ac-
honling- to the evidence produced we
find that the said Eli Vergnes came
to his death by being crushed accidentally between a car and a chute as
he was following his occupation in the
mine of the Consolidate Coal Co. of
Frank on the-15th day of January 1910
and we shggest that the said Coal Co.
instal a system of the drop chute,
commonly called the chestnut chute as
a caution against such accidents being repented in that mine.
The inhabitants of Frank witnessed
another of the numerous wind and
snow storms on Tuesday last. One of
the plate glass windows of Watson's
drug store was blown clean out, and
th'e windows of the'41 Meat Market
met a similar fate. For a time it
was imposible to keep the electric
lights on owing to the wind causing
damage to the main line wires, One

Editor Ledger,
Sir: Allow me a few lines of space
in your valuable journal which I read
with considerable interest, since being
in the western part of Canada. I
may say-1 am one who .takes a straight
line of independent thought on labor
questions. I am connected with both
local and general. Midst all the -war
and strife now raging with the capitalist the mighty powers of government,
soldiers and police and great corporations, such as the Dominion and the
Springhiil Coal and Railway companies, how can poor working men with
$2 or $3 a day stand up against such
power. It is ridiculous to think of
doing so.   *
° Only n tighter, who has' the worst
side of the battle will go down- and
after a while rise again to the call
of tins-?, to go down again, I feel thnt
■something must be done to prevcnit
these terrible industrial wars in the
way of having better and more conciliatory agreements; broader and sounder, for li miner and a living standard
line of wage. Strikes are acknowledged
by all as suicidal to the cause of the
workers, ,We must eventually educate
the members of-our unions to the fact
that it Is the last ditch \ve_ are crossing before we, elU«r into that-holy
sanctuary of law makers, called the
Local and Dominion houses of parliament.   ' *...*,
I may* add the last ditch has come
too,- with the Cumberland Rail and
Coal company of Nova Scotia, who
stated publicly that they had lost $299-
000 in-the last three years of operation
but still,they haye had'money to'burn
by bringing in .scabs from the continent of Europe, and some gum boot
thugs patrolling, the works day and
night in a pitching seam like • Spring-
hill's, about, 75! degrees. -They .have
had men working.'in places-{where'.it

ly before the' strike at Springhiil the
me nwere worked,'in to pack their* own

weight 'Of a box, of, coal. In, olden
days up to' two, years ago the amount
of coal considered'to be a'box?by the
agreement was'22 cubic feet, ekulval-
ent to about 1650 pounds, but Professor Sexton of Halifax gave.It to be
1670. By expert and professional test
that weight was given by Judge Patterson of New Glasgow as chairman of
the-conciliation board held in Spring-
hill two and a half years ago, but the
Company made,„a new'.'standard of
their own of 2009 lb. per box. Then
there is another serious item of grievance, that -of the -dockingsystem. The
old system was 60 pounds of stone
docked a boxJ^O pounds of stone you
would bo docked 20 cents. Patterson
board gave 100 pounds of stone takes
off 500 pounds of coal and 200 pounds

Confronting the Coal Industry  of   North
(By Samuel A. Taylor C. E.)
in connection with the work of the
^lining Institute of America we have
fcad much discussion of ways and of
means for the most efficient, economical, safe and complete recovery of the
coal from the various seams which
come uiulei; the supervision and the
practical operation of the members of
the institute.* Almost all of the time
of the institute meetings is utilized
by consideration of themes pertaining
to tho abo-\e subjects, while little time
is devoted to subjects which, while allied closely thereto, yet might be termed economical questions, because of
their effect upon the people at large,
and not confined in iheir influence
to those Immediately Interested or employed in or around the mines.
It is of some of these problems that
I wish to treat briefly, in order to
bring them to your attention, so that
by your consideration and discussion
of them, there may be pointed out
ways by which they may be solved by
those in position to take the necessary
action to.that end.    '
When we study the growth and the
' conditions existing in the  industrial
world of today in comparison with the
conditions of the past, and from this
comparison draw our conclusions,' as
to what they will be in the future, unless something be done or some power
be interjected to change the present
trend of affairs, it is then that we will
be impressed    with the fact,that we
cannot live for, ourselves;    that th'e
things we do today will seriously affect the future generation or, our race
for good or evil depending on whether
we act wisely and well or foolishly and
wastefully..' '       " v.
Those of you who1 have had the op-
■ portunity of reading the extract from
the Congressional Record.of June 14,
1909, oh. the International Arbitration
and Peace, or the Mission of the Unit-
will remember the  sentiment  which
prevaded these speeches—that public
> opinion  is the one thing necessary,
'■more than any other, to the disarmament of nations and to the securing of
the world peace; that to this end men
must come together and discus's mat:
ters pertaining to the subjects so as
tb crystallite public opinion;* also that
familiarity with honesl men does not
breed .-.contempt, but confidence. This'
sentiment or fact is equally applicable
to the situation which we wish to consider.   ■ Iu order to put"in to practical
operation the matters 'which we wish
to bring to your"attention, public opinion must be awakened to the Importance of thom, and to accomplish this
result It Is very necessary that honest
men, familiar with the subjects, meet
and discuss those measures In a thorough, dispassionate and unprejudiced
nlnnner, beforo tho public will havo a
cleai;  and  fair opinion formed upon
First: The question of conservation
not only of fuel nnd'wator, but lifo and
almost, all other materials and conditions of economic Industry, have been
the subject of- thought and consldorn-
Hon not'only upon the part'of govern-
ipr-nt offlfllnlHjnit by congross conven-
oil at various times, clinmb'.'n* of commerce, civic flubs and a -great many
other nrgiinlziitloiiH of Rlmllar diarac-
ter, so that tht! matter 1ms boon
brought to tho itttenlion of tho public
In a gi'iii'i-nl wny for several yearn
! The necessity/for the conservation
of coal and the safety of the men engaged in the production thereof, have
been probably more.talked-and-'written
aboutjthan many other' conditions in
our, country in times past', and are con-
.stantly*. being brought-to the attention
of the public by statisticians- announcing'from time to. time, in bold head--'!**
lines,*, of the.,*short time over which j ♦
the present available coal supply will j ♦
last.*. While'these statements as" to', *
the length of time the coal supply will
last; are very much at'variance' because of new 'coal seams having been
discovered from .time to time, an dalso
the greater recovery of coal obtained
by the methods used now as compared
with those of past times.7" This'variance in time has been> so great as to
lead the. general public to"think that
the date at which the coal -supply will
be exhausted will be so far distant
that they need pay but little attention
Indeed this is the general conclusion
reached by the average person; therefore the method of. bringing this matter to the attention of tlie public aolng
lhe lines of scaring them into tlie consideration of the question may possibly
be condoned.
, It has been stated by those in connection with'the United States'geolo-
gical survey that in the production of
about 415,000,000 tons of coal last year
in the United States, 250,000.000 tons
of coal weer lost or destroyed; at least
rendered impossibel of recovery for
future generations,
When we consider that the output of
coal is doubled,,on an average every
10 years, and when we consider the
loss of coai, which income cases I am
sure, was greater than that given by
the statistics' of last year, it at once
becomes an appalling question as to
what the future may ,be. - The result
is certain to be impressed upon' one's
mind that this wilful waste will'in the
future bring a woeful want if it is not
checked and new methods of recovery,
as well as the uses of coal, introduced
in order that- not only what we now
produce, but also what is now lost
under the prevailing practice, be saved to the 'future generations.
It is also apparent to all those who
are familiar with the mining practice
in the Pittsburg region that an average,
of 50 per cent, of all coal in the Pitts-
bug seam is wasted. This of course
includes the roof and bottom coal, and
the ribs and'stumps, that are lost In
the mining of the main body of the'
coal. •*-.'''■..  ■
, What is true of the Pittsburg district
is true to a greater or less extent of
other coal fields, and hence tlie neces-
in sight. . '  ■    tn
In this connection we might men-"
tion anothe rfact of waste of all those
poorer grades of coal, especially during
.times of restricted market, as based pn
the practice carried out in general by
the United States government in the
purchase of its coal, namely the, purchase thereof on the 13. T. U, basis.
During the past two years a great
many large individual coal users have
adopted the same method, and tho operators or producers of coal have been
forced into selling eoal on this basis,
for the reason that, the scarcity of
trade compelled them to submit to a
great many conditions which they, under normal conditions, would not bo
willing to do, Inasmuch as .by this
method nothing but n high grade of
coal will fill the requirements, all the
poorer grades of coal wore eliminated
from the production and nothing but
the strictly first class high grade coals
could ontor Into competition.
I .do not wish to be understood as
cnll'mlng that, this method Is not based
upon scientific principle; for wo concede this, What we do claim Is tlmt
It tends to a waste of a largo pnrt of
our fuel reserve by limiting the mnrkot io Riieli coal ii»i will stand such a
if'si, and you leave a margin of profit,
to the producer afler paying a fair nnd
living wiiao to those employed in the
production nf the coiil, both of which
arc very nwessury If any stable .economic position is io be iiuiliiiaiiii'il in
tlio trndo.

-A:.Their contention was that while
there might be merit in the cause of
the Industrial, Workers, the methods
pursued were unlawful and did not
meet, with the' approval' of the com-
munity. . Mr.- Blair,-the corporation
counsel, made a miserable, attempt to
try and explain the prevalence of vice
and crime,,by saying that'the police
were too busy in,making arrests for
street speeking." This brought down
the house and he was lustily jeered in
Q: Was there any answer made to
him by any of the members of the audience?   ■ ■ .
A: There was and the two gentlemen were roundly denounced. Mr.
Swenson, a prominent Typographical
union man, denounced the authorities
in most emphatic terms. As he proceeded with his remarks he grew white
with passion and indignantly held up
the district court to scorn, declaring
Judge Webster's opinion in the Filig-
no case to be the most flagrantly rotten and unjust thing he had eevr read.
His speech was eloquent, spontaneous
and electrifying.

Mr. Swenson fairly .represents the
opinion of organized labor ,iii Spokane? '    '■'" 7
A: I do. He'is a representative man

your months" of, experience on the in-,
side of .the'fight;, the methods' advocated by this paper, namely, to use every
possible- influence'to;bring public sentiment outside-'qf Spokane,'as well as
inside, to' compel theHyrahriical.authorities' in, Spokane to reverse their

Q: . Then, in youp*-opinion,' very'
much more is to be expecte'd along the
lines of awakening public sentiment
than through legal.procedure? .** *
,'A: There certainly is. We have
been saying for years that* the courts,
are merely the instruments of the capitalist clas sto maintain'the property-
iess wage workers In'a condition of
slavery. As a,member of the'organization, I have repeatedly stated and
now believe '.that,.nothing ca nbe accomplished In a legal fight before' the
Courts, except to emphasize, the'fact
that the courts are,deaf to the sufferings and. rights of the working class,

Q: Now, Mr. HoKors, lot uh
law itself refuse to obey the law. Is
there no possible recourse to a law
higher up? " ■  -
A: We might have made such applications but in my opinion, as I have
stated before it would have been useless. The courts are the instruments
of the capitalist class for the enslavement of the workers, and the Federal
courts I believe would have been less
inclined to afford relief. They are not
so responsible directly to the people,
and in view of the long line of decisions by the Federal court antagonistic
to labor, 1 must say that I do not think
that there would have been any hope
there.     \ 7,        '.  . .
Q:' Then ' the conclusion of the
whole matter from the legal standpoint
is practically identical with the view
previously stated, namely that the
only way to preserve freedom of
speech for the working classes on the
streets is to get people, citizens of
those cities, themselveb to vote, out of
office every official who dares to act
as the mayor, chief counsel, chief of
police and police justices have acted
in Spokane during this I, W. W. controversy. So, that if not before, at
the city elections of ,1911, Mayor Pratt
and those associated with him .will go
down to ignominious defeat for their
tyrannical un-American conduct of the
A: 1 do not know what method may
linally be-determined upon as the most
effective,.but I am sure that an enlightened public will surely repudiate
such officials and their tyrannous acts.
Such a public informed in the premises, will find its own way.
Q: Do you care to make any further statement?
A:  It "is not for me to knock Spo
kane. It is good and bad as cities go—
as good and bad as'Denver, What we
have   there is simply the world's old
war of the classes. Our troubles started only when we began to actually organize   the economic   forces of labor.
Everybody was speaking on the street
biit the I. W.'W. began saying   some
practical things. We went so far as to
call attention to the fact that the very
district in .which ,we  were* speaking
was. a- slave market; and advised men
not to patronize the,employment agents.     It dont" take them long to persuade' the   city   council   that  people
should not be allowed to-speak on the
streets,,.where accidents-might occur
in;,case of a fire.'"   This in face of'the
fact that no, such accident had occurred'or was liable to occur from the I.
W.'-W'.  meetings,. because,' as usual,
we kept the street-' open and the side-
walks-for' travel. - The I. W W..went
to.their*ball wherethey continued.to
hold .their" educational' meetings.    To
show, you the absolute dishonesty and-
pocritical fire limit talk, they passed
in August; inHhelr street speaking ordinance that* religious bodies "-might
speak on'.-'the street. ' 'The I. W. W.
noted the'.discrimmination but'  said
nothing.    President Taft came and he
spoke.on the,streets, completely blocking them  in violation of this, same
ordinance,' an'dv, in contravention   of
the same'authority.     The I. W.'W.
said nothing.     Finally Mr. Bryan'arrived and did exactly the-same thing.
The I. ,W.   W.   felt that, something
must be done in order to call [the attention of the public to this unjust discrimination and so they be'gan'maklng
public speeches on the street.     Mr.
Bryan was brought to the city at the
solicitation of a certain political committee," and I want to say hero tbat If
Elizabeth' Flynn (Gurley Flynn) ■ Is at
all guilty- of conspiracy, thcen    Mr.
Bryan and tho committee that brought
him to ..Spokano nre equally guilty.
Now, in the several hundred arrests
Officers Alleged to Have
-, Abused   Helpless
(Calgary Albertan)
Bruised, battered aaid bleeding from   *
what several   .citizens declare was a>
brutal and unnecessary manhandling,
a cripple named Breen was taken to
the police station last night by Plain '
Clothes Officer George McKay and,P.
C. McDougall, and there locked up on
the charge of being drunk and disorderly.
The arrest created a great- deal of
excitement and' a crowd numbering
about 150 followed the officers down .
Eighth avenue protesting all the way
at the manner in which the man was
being treated.
When they reached the station Ex-"
Mayor Emerson laid n formal com-
plaint against the officers, and an In-v
vestigation will be held by Chief
A number of witnesses have offered
to come forward and give their testimony, and judging from the rem-trks
of those who saw the affair, it will
be very unfavorable to the officers.
According to the complaint, made,
Breen was dragged along by the twisters, a chain which is placed around
the wrist and gradually screwed together tighter until the prisoner quits
Breen was undoubtedly under the influence of liquor,-    He had been lock-'1
ed up for the same offence on prev--
ious occasions and  acrording to  the
•police he"had always been a hard customer to handle.     Eye witnesses to
the fracas last night assert that Breen '
was screaming from the pain- caused
by the twisters, and it was not until
the  men  threatened ,to, take  action
themselves that the man was treated
in anything like a humane, manner by
the officers. '
The hooting jeering crowd round the
officers followed them to the station .
wnere it.ris"a.'leged Brer 1 was ih*own
on the floor..
Chief Mackie stated-last night that
he had received the formal-complaint
of Ex-Mayor Emerson and would investigate the matter°and take the evidence of 'witnesses and; the explanation of the officers involved hi the;case.,
