e hoi ora abbiamo determinate di rime-
diare a questo stato di cose nel seg-
uente modo:
La vostra cooperazione sincera ci e
necessaria, affinche nol non solo div*
erreno I'organo ufficlale fra i lavora-
tori e specialmente fra i minatori, ma
saremo in grado bensi. di fornlre
notizle di generate inter'esse e da ogni
parte de mondo.
Nostro scopo e di sviluppare questo
programma affinche questa pubblica-
zlone sia agente non indifferente di
educazione. per fa classe opcraia.
Prlmo scopb e dl consolidare i leg-
ami di amicizla e di nazionale ed in-
ternazionale fratellanza, al fine che
ogni membro del nostro partito, sla
pieno di quello spirito di solidarieta
che passa ogni frbntlera, e che mostri
che il nostro programma ha un solo
fine"=u'n solo desiderlo, I'istruzione ed
il' migiioramento delta nostra classe
operaia'i senza conslderazione alcuna e
del colore e del paese nel quale' essi
videro al luce.
Noi siamo obbligati di domandare la
.vostra indulgenza anche   dopo *, avervi
assicurato che noi siamo spinti da un
ardente desiderio'di   .solidlflcare I'or-
ganizzazione del, dieciottesimo distret-

attenzione, fu la necessita di tenere j

delle questioni riguardanti il loro lav-

FRENCH SOCIALISTS
BIG CONVENTION
PENSION MEASURE OF THE GOVERNMENT THE CAUSE OF A
HOT DEBATE
NISMES, Feb. 26.—The convention
hall Is large, profusely decorated with
red. ' A large streamer over the platform bids tho delegates welcome. The
other streamers bear such well known
inscriptions as: "They,who would be
free must strike the blow," and also
•"Workers of all countries, unite."
Along the walls are the banners,of
the various local organizations; one
of the banners is torn into shreds.
' "This one has been through the electoral battle; the radicals tore it to
•pieces," explained the organizer to
me.
The morning session was presided
over by the Socialist mayor of Nismes
Comrade Hubert Rouger. On his right
and left were two, ex-mayors of the
city, Comrades Pierre and Vallette, the
last of whoiii was . removed. by order
of Clemenceau.
<* . Man From Belgium Speaks
" In* my capacity of fraternal delegate
"from Belgium I addressed the convention, trying to enlist their sympathy
lor the abolutlon df the*tax on immigrants; which confers a great hardship
upon jinany, Belgian workers compelled
to seek a livelihood across the frontier,' and tends to divide' the wage-
'e'arners'of"tlie'several nations.
In   the'afternoon after the re"adlng
of ''the parliamentary report,  --Herve
representatives are here to see'that
no such a,thing happens. I am not, in'
favor of the money remaining idle. It
should be use dto start large national
industries, such as the development of
coal'"mines; to further social reforms,
such as the building df sanitary dwellings. "Would that be stealing the contribution of the workers? The law
when it is presented in the Chamber of
Deputies should be amended, but it
should receive our support, it will be
a great power toward the furthering
of our ends.      ' ,   -'.
Must Vote
"There are three things we can do
—vote for the bill, vote against the
bill, or abstain from^yotlng altogether.
By. merely withholding our votes we
might accomplish the downfall^of'the
measure, but such a course would be
unworthy of a great political party,
and would be a powerful weapon to use
against us In the hands of* our ene*-
mies, I know there are some in our
ranks who are opposed to all law; ■ it
is for the convention to decide whether
or not they ,are. In accord with such
tactics." ''     ".,     ■ ,* ,' :
Here Herve protested.        ,-   '.*
"When the shoe fits let him put' it
dn," answered Renaudel and the delegates laughed.   •,
"The^only argument against our
support to the measure," said Renaudel finally, "is that the syndicalist' unions have declared against it, butthe
syndicalist .unions are opposed to all
political action, so'we need not;take
anynotice of their antagonism. .The
working class and its representatives
in the Chamber of Deputies should
strain every nerve to Improve the measure, but we should lend it our' support."    ° ' f 7
Comrade Groussler made a vigorous speech. He questioned the correctness of statistics'published iri l'Hum-
anlte by' Comrade Lafargue,. which
tended-to'show that the government
SITUATION IN PHILADELPHIA **■■-
"made his now well known attack upon
, the representatives in the Chamber of
Deputies', claiming" that they had degenerated into a mere radical bourgeois clique, Those who have heard
Herve know his caustic manner of debate'.'* * For about an hour,he poured
the vials of his' wrath oyer •thei head
" of the deputies, and* at* the end he
announced that he was going to leave
the party. "You have asked for my
expulsion at every convention," he
siild; "very well, I am going,to accommodate you. There is no reason
why I should any longer confer upon
you a revolutionary character which
you do not possess." When Hervo
left: tho tribune a delegato cried after
him "Good-bye and many thanks to
you." .    -
Pension Debate
Tlie great, debate on tho old age pension bill took place today. During the
discussion the various factions of tho
Socialist'party clashed. Thero Ib in tho
first plnco the so-called reformist faction, led by Jauros and Vnlllant; tho
"rogulaiH," led by that grand old man
Jules (Juesde who unfortunately, cannot bo present at tho convontlon on account of lllnoBB,' nnd tho "Insurrection-
iBts," Iod by Herve.
The point of vlow of tho "regulniH"
was slated clearly by Comrade Mnrlus
AndroH, tho first orator.    Ilo claimed
that tho party Hhould not support tho
hill bocniiHo It. wns a bwIikHo tho gov-
ernemnt wnntod to porpotrnto upon the
working daHfl. In tho flrnt plnce, pnrt
of lho monoy for tho old ago jiuiihIoii
would hnvo to bo contributed by the
workorH thi'msulvoH, und would be deducted from their wngoH. In the hoc-
ond plnco, tho bill provided thnt. ono
hnd to bo OS yearn old boforo It bo
ennift uohbIIjIo to draw a poiiHlon, and
thlH practically mount that tliotiHiindB
of workers who hnd contributed to tho
old ago pension fund would novor benefit by lt; In tho third plnco, tho money
could he iihoiI by tho government to
flnniine caplttillHtle BchomoH.     For all
Uioho reasoiiH ho claimed that lho 8o-
cIuIIhU Hhould  not   ovon  attempt   tn
amend the hill but that thoy ought to
kill It outright,

Introiluoed; If wo are going to occupy
thnl position we might n« well sny
right off that we do noi want any

do not wish tn hw anything like Ddr

This tliriiBt aimed at the "Insurrectionist*," was reeolwil with great np-
filnuw.
"You any the nov-uium-jut v-llt «**at
tie part contributed by the worker*."
continued Henaudel,     "The gnrlfllUt
had^misappropriated money contriluu--
ed by the government employes toward
an old age''pension fund of their own.
"In 1908, 35 "million francs were "contributed, by the employes, and 98 million francs were contributed by the
government." „       u>        -' 7 J    __,.

The, comrades "have been' . making
fun of the minimum age* of 65 .years,
which one has,'to.,attain before draw-
ing, a pension,"and 'have.'humorously
called the old ago pension law a "law
foi* "the pensioning", of the. dead'."., .
"Groussler,pointed out that with certain provisions. It was,possible for ,a
workingman to draw a pension at 55.
He, however, woiild have to suffer a
reduction. This, was a feature of the
law which could be amended. "Furthermore," said Groussler, "there are thousands of workingmen who do reach the
age of 05 nnd who would be benefited
by tho law. At present no less than
throb hundred thousand workingmen
of that ngo receive assistance. In England no less thon three hundred thousand workingmen of over seventy have
been benefited by the old ngo pension
law.* The syndicalists nro opposed to
tho lnw; woll, whnt of that? Today
tho most revolutionary nmong.the syndicalists are even opposed to nil collective bargaining botwoon working-
men nnd employers,"
Comrndo Albert, the next Hpeakor,

* Three dead,.nine-dying, ninety one
seriously injured, hundreds suffering
from bruises and cuts—such Is the record of losses in the civil Avar that has
been raging In the city of Brotherly
Love for four days past.   _
Besides the losses' In men (also women and children) there are also the
losses In material. Three hundred
cars are reported to have been destroyed or wrecked. This loss ;. '.vlll
fall not on the traction company; that
constitutes one party ^0 this war, but
on the city. '       *
. For such is this "sacred and inviolable rule' in all warfare between" capital and labor. The losses of Labor
naturally fall upon Labor; but'the
losses sustained by Capital*have to
be made good by the entire body of
citizens. ,' ''   "',
The company is, exerting all possible pressure to have the entire state
militia moved to Philadelphia.'' "Why
shouldn't it?' .The cost of maintaining the troops would fall on the entire
community, and not on the belligerent
people that provoked-the war. The
state'authorities, including Senator'
Penrose, boss of the Republican organization of the state, are reported to be
averse to bringing the state troops to
the city.
They fear that the entrance of the
militia would be the signal for a general strike.. ' r *'-•.''- .

- Very noble,Indeed.- '''?.* "
It is a magnificent an Inspiring sight
to see one hundred thousand working-
men cease from work arid subject
themselves and their families to privation in order to give help to their fellow workers.' The solidarity of the
working class is its noblest trait,1 the
most indispensable condition for all
future progress;'   p      rf
But,---really, a 1 little enlightenment
would do no harm. •
' The right exercise of the ballot by a
united working class is much easier to
accomplish than a general strike, and
It does not' entail one tenth as many
sacrifices, not to speak of hunger and
privation.   "' ■ ■
" By all means let the working people
of Philadelphia strike altogether if that
be the best means of helping the carmen. But let them also vow to strike
altogether at* the ballot box at the
next1 fall elections. And when the
capitalists and' their political hirelings
learn that the working people-have
ceased to be political retainers, what
a change there,will be in their demeanor.' 7 ,
How eager, will they be to come to
terms with' their employes!
■' For there is'nothing that the traction companies and all other public
service corporations dread so much as
Independent working class political'ac*

in* Canada; too long.have such methods been resorted to, even the appointment of a minister of labor would seem
to indicate that his functions were how
to avoid creating any legislation that
is calculated to advance the Interests'
df the working-.people of our country."
;. "Therefore, belt resolved. that we
protest to the government on Its evident Insincerity In.*, advancing progressive measures calculated tb, advance the prosperity and happiness of
the people, and that the time has arrived when the' working class . should
vote for and support only labor representatives in" the federal parliament."

1 QUEBEC-Feb. 28.—At the meeting
of the Federated Council of Trades
and Labor, strong resolutions were adopted in - regard to the . manner in
which the "interests of the. ■ working
whose Illegal arrest and confinement,
over night in jail* has put the city
authorities in a, very .bad light indeed,
is said to be opposed to the calling, of
a general strike,'one, the ground that
it is unnecessary, and, that it would
alienate the sympathies of the general
public. Biit he would"withdraw his
opposition, If the state troops became
a factor In''the contest.
The,militia'is therefore, still kept'in
the background, But the' ctate constabulary, organized for, the special
purpose of dealing with strikes, is,being rushed to the scene of action.-
From the point of view of the men
on strike,' l we cannot see what there
Is to choose' between the state mllltla
arid the state constabulary. In fact
the latter nre by far the more reckless
In the discharge of their "sacred!" duty
—which is that of overawing*and'of
punishing strikers, '
In-order to prevent Federal intervention the union of the carmen permits Ub members to operate cars that
bear United Stntes mail. The company Is equally anxious to secure Fed-
ernl intervention, nnd Ib therefore trying to cntiBO an Interruption in the trolley mnll service.' It prohibits the
wearing of union buttons by tho men
nnd dlBClinrgcH those who persist. In
wearing them for thoir own self protection. Having done all It could to
make tho moving of the United States
mall a difficult thing, the company at
once proceeds to Herve notico upon the

,'A NEW BROOM SWEEPS CLEAN."
Tlie author of this time-worn maxim must "have been
a plain, ordinary man, because In point of fact'every careful housewife knows it is not correct; new brooms, lilt,
new shoes, require a certain amount of usage before they
attain their best condition.
Following along this line of. reasoning we must ask
any of our many subscribers who are looking forward to
immediate, radical changes,  to exercise that  virtue to
which, neither sex can claim a monopoly, if we accept the
old doggerel:
"Patience is a virtue, catch it if you can,*
Never found in a woman and seldom in a man."
However, we assure all and  sundry that improve-
* ments will be introduced as gradually as practicable, to
the end in view that this journal, of wisdom (sic) may
; come to* be recognized-as the weekly compendium .'of
current affairs throughout the entire district. Primarily
this is the representative organ of the Mine .Workers,
hence lt is, its .duty to espouse their cause as a collectlv-;
ity, but .keeping free at all'times from being usedas a
vehicle to-promote selfish,--Individualistic interest.
Whilst this is our first aim, nevertheless we shall
also, recognising the necessity for solidarity among the
workers, pay especial attention, to aU matters affecting
the well .being of members of the .producing class.
" What other features we mayslntroduce, we will leave
time,-to determine; contenting ourselves with the fixed
purpose of acting well our; part.'   **. ', -*
huma'n-society, hence7vhy-w-iste-'effort-endeavoring to
remedy'the'faults of the superstructure when the' foundation is unstable?       ,*-.''
Until such time as the'majority fail to recognize this
fact we shall,have piffling attempts at reorganization
that must of necessity be.foredoomed, to do no more.1 than
merely improve the condition of a few units wliilst leaving the, prinae .cause.to fester as'lively as ever.
In the meantime for the,"edification of those who maybe good intentioned,''but refuse to admit the logic of the
situation, the following extract from the Saturday Sunset'
should,furnish,excellent food for thought. There is this
to be said of the honest reformer who is open minded
and not merely a visionary faddist that if he or; she will
keep constantly and consistently at the work with a mind
open,to conviction, the inadequacy of such efforts to cope
with the diseases of society will be~forced upon them,
and they must reach a conclusion that the "axe will have
to be laid at the root in order to obtain,victory.      -,.:
"The other day a*young girl of fifteen years of age ap-
ipeared before the police magistrate. It was -the'''girl's
iirst offense. Dut.it was one requiring treatment, and
not punishment. There is no place of treatment In Vancouver for fifteen-year-old girls who make ii misstep,
except.'the city jail. The city jail is the moral 'cemetery of all first offenders. Any jail Is for that matter.
Police Magistrate Bell is a man of sympathy and is wise
to the effects of h jail term upon a young girl of fifteen,
iind it was with great'reluctance that he committed her
to jail. J3ut tliere was nothing else to do. .The fifteen-
year-old girl is now, lira** place, where the-scum'* of. the.
earth' is gathered, where the foul language and fouler associations of the underworld are concentrated around her.
The chances tha/ she'will come7out of that place a moral
wreck are a thousand to one..,. A jail term for. ,a. young
girl is about certain mora!, damnation. ,: .
The spirit and intent bf the Dominion Juvenile Court
Act is the regeneration of youthful "delinquents?"That Is
why places of detention for children are made .a liecess-*,
nry. part of the* machinery, of. that act. Now,'British
Columbia is provided with an industrial, home for boys,
but-there is none for1 girls. That is why the magistrate
had to send a fifteen-year-old girl to her moral' destruction, all according to law: '       ', -   -  -
,' The -Juvenile Courts Act, 1910, the creation of Bowser the Great, does not provide forvthis discrepancy.in the
machinery of juvenile justice in Britlsh.,Columbia. The
Juvenile Protective Association wired and wrote . this,
great poohbah of the Cabinet and by dint of several'telegrams and letters finally got an answer from him, but
rot before he had made/a public announcement of it in

SITE FOR DUKE'S STA_"UEr'$
* , r-,?«<i<    -7
A g'i-eat sensation was caused at a?
meeting of the Sheffield CityfCouiicil^
when Mr..J. Pointer,7.1. P. moved an"
amendment, to a minute recommending
that,.in connection with the gift of,
Xoi-folio,park to the'city consideration)
should be given to the erection of a
suitable' memorial to the Duke bf Norfolk hi Fitzalan square, or some other
approved place, to perpetuate the gift;
It was;little short of a scandal, said
Mr'i'Po'int'eiv haying due. regard to all;
the circumstances and the age ' in
which they.we're living, that they now-:
should seek to perpetuate in the form
of--a monument, or any kind of such!
memorial, the memory bf a man 'like,
thc Duke ,of*' Norfolk. Sheffield had::
nothing to, thank the Duke for. The
gift of? Norfolk pari; was merely a' tech'-'
.nicality. What he gave was considerably less than what he took out of
Sheffield every year in the shape of
rent,1 all of which represented robbery.;
The only place for the statute of the
Duke was the refuse tip, added the
speaker. If such a statue were erected in Fitzalan-square he hoped- that
the workingmen" would gather in-their
thousands to resent the insult, pull It
to the ground aiid trample it in'the
dust. -.  •■-..* i   .
Sir William Clegg and Col. Hughes,

LABOR LEADER'S DEATH
FIRST AID
!' The recent establishment of "St. John's Ambulance
class at Coal Creek initiated by Mr. C. H. Ashworth, and
to which Dr. Corsan is giving his valuable assistance,
commends'Ttself to.the community . inaTmuciT'Trs""suclT
bodies of trained men around, the various industrial establishments may, by the utilization of .their surgical
knowledge,,not only mitigate the sufferings of their fellow,workers, but .even save life.. ..A case in, point recently came to our.kilowledgo where a young man whilst
at;hls work, in' one of the coal mlncB along tlie Pass received an injury to his legs aiid bled so profusely before
medical aid could be given that he succumbed; whereas
had any of his fellow workers possessed even a rudimentary, firstiiilil.knowledge, such a calamity would doubtless
have been averted and a widow and a family saved the
mourning of the breadwinner. ,      > ,
The employers who realize the advantages accruing
must perforce give .every aid to the furtherance of the
purpose of these classes, because not only do men receive excellent training whereby they, may help their fel-
the", press. .The Association asked,the Attorney General
to delay the third reading of the bill until it could be
amended to provide for a detention home for girls. That
eminent statesman replied that the Government would
take rio st'eps this session' and that such monies were tb be
expended upon "reproductive public works"—jails I'suppose. ' " , o '"■''■

' (Lethbridge Xews) , " -•
.The visiting delegates to the Miners convention, were entertained at a
smoker last night hy the Trade's and
Labor Council and Lethbridge delegates to the United Mine Workers o!
America. " . ■ ,  •
• In addition to ,a number of excellently rendered songs, eloquent and Instructive speeches dealing with prohibition and labor problems were delivered.
t
At the invitation of ihe Trades council, Rpv. Mr. Fortune was present, and
addressed the meeting on the, evils of
the liquor traffic and the work of prohibitionists. '■ He .believed ■ that tho
wqrkingnien now realized; that the
gauntlet had been thrown down by
Samuel .Gompers".and other leading
men, to the liquor traffic,* and they
were now lining up throughout the
country to .abolish the liquor traffic,
when the laboring man would come
into his own.
He painted word pictures of the deplorable conditions existing in most of
the lumber and mining camps In B. C
and the drunkenness, and' dissipation
that occurred when,the nien visited
* the towns, where' ',they were often'
drugged and robbed.- He painted "the
liquor dealers and ' bar. tenders ' as a
body, of men absolutely destitute of
honor, as social parasites robbing the
laboring man. of their harii earned
wages, and charged that it was a common practice*: for, bartenders'.to' -with-..
hold proper change and, to participate
in .TOlling.vmen.Joi'.,thelr.tni9ney. --•,.    -*.
He spoke of,"one-case as"having,oc-.
curred ln«_ethbri'dge*' "'btit-'refu-ied'Hb
gi-v;e names when asked to do so by
one of the\ audience,'"'who staled that
there were ^bartenders, present,,-, and
* member. *6r the" union, whose "charac-'
ter._the„reverend.;gentleman- had .im
pugned.
He- Batd-LethbrIdge-was*under. "the
ruling'; hand bf .capitalists, ,the liq*.
-^uoij-rnen7-who'»'were~qnce"on'the"rociis
and now owned"*"nouses am. horses.
How did they acquire these, not by
the, liquor sold over the bar but by,
drinki as it'  would be against their
own-interests.'
• The ..rev. gentleman' also; gave the
usual spiel as to the baneful effects of
liquor oh the-health, and Its influence
on crime and poverty and said the aim
of the Moral Reform League was to
abolish the bar and treating, and after
this was obtained to stop the manufacture and importation of liquor.   .
Mv. ,\V. Syoionds, a, temperance man
followed, and gave an array of reasons
why he could not support the cause of
the speaker, that, by .their cogency,
and apparently uncontradlctory truth,
appealed strongly to the common
sense of his listeners. He took the
stand that the drink evil was due not'
to social' but to economic reasons
,The,-Moral Reform people did riot go,
to the root of the matter. The liquor
business was of such wide extent and
employed such vast numbers ot men
and capital that'it could not be abolished without the disorganization of
society. Unemployment in relation'
io temperance and capital- was also'
handled in V masterly-'manner but at'
too great'.length-to be-..given here.     ;
He contended that prohibition was
going to make0'.the 'working men's'
problem *. more .difficult* than it is by
throwing one. million men in America',

v Even the railway workers may be

About a year ago the leaders of,

Presidents and managers of the railroads sat down beside the presidents

interest for the welfare and prosperity
of American RAILROADS."
• The leaders of capital and the leaders of labor tried to cement together

is no clause, he states, fixing hours of

He asks* that a nine hour clause be
Inserted and that a union wage clause
be adopted.'
He further states that he vwill ask
moro stringent regulations regarding
the boarding of the men, and amendments to the agreement on several minor points.
' As far as tho wages to be paid on
the road are concerned the agreement
merely provides that the current rate
of wages-for any particular class of
labor' shall be paid. "    ,
This the Socialist member would like
to see transformed Into a straight union clause, compelling the company to
pay the full union wages in every class

Printers vs. Coal. Company drew"a"
'large crowd on Thursday night, and
'excitement .was not lacking. The game,
of last week .when the; Prints grabbed
the Coalers,- had put the latter on the
move, but the result was the same in
:the first-league game.
.'i. Pat Cunningham elbowed hfs way'
through the crowd, and-located in the
front pew at 439. , The-rest^of,..the.
pinners, walloped out about their usual
strings, wlth-'the exceikion of Klauer,
who sits hard and fast on the. back
seat, and-r,efus'es.to move to the front.
";■ The Printers bowled low, but at that
they had 149 margin, and their stock
promises to go to par soon.
