• Tho. new apparatus for tho rescue
station at Hosmer having arriv.ed, we
were, thanks to" the courtesy of the
govornment mine inspector, Mr. Robert* Strachan,, Invited to make-an examination of same, and also to witness a "demonstration of its particular
uses. We accepted the invitation, and
on Wednesday afternoon journeyed to
Hosmer n company with Drs. Bonnell
and,Corsan, Secretaries A. J. Carter
and D. Rees, Mr. James Ashworth, and
Mr. J. E. Smith of Coal Creek.   ,
.Upon arriving at our destination wo
made the acquaintance of Mr. F. F.
Morris, the manager of the Draeger
Oxygen Apparatus company, the manufacturers of the plant, who offlcia-
, ted in the capacity of demonstrator;
and as we' deem the Information ob-
... tained to be of particular interest to
mine, workers, we give a short description of the designs of the various
portions of the device, and of their
application. ° y   y~"
■ In brief, the outfit consist-of four"
sets of Draeger Two-Hour and two
"sets of Half-Hour apparatus, and a
pulmotor., '■■"■
The two-hour _ apparatus comprises
helmet, breathing "bag, "and- regen-
back \ of the wearer, and ,is soar-:
ranged' that the "weight is * evenly distributed. *' Its principal, features are
an oxygen cylinder, circulating tubes
■ (2),.potash cylinder,and cooler. The
helmet encases -,'the frontal portion-.of
the head of the -wearer, - the admfs-
,- sion of external air being completely
excluded by moans of the.close-fitting
pneumatic cushions with which it is
•-■ fitted. -There aro two- pipes leading
from. the helraot to the regenerator,
through which circulation is effected.
The modus .ppperandl is as follows:
A cylinder stored with compressed
oxygen sets up circulation throughout
'   tho wholo, apparatus, breathing being
' effected through, tho medium of a
respiration bag, which hangs in front
of the wearer.and forms, in.conjunc-
tion with tho potash cylinder, an artificial lung, save that tho air ia
breathed over and over • again. Tho
exhaled or residual    air. is    drawn
■ through one of tho pipes' previously
alluded to, nnd passing through a
cartridge containing a lnrgo -number

the privilege of-putting the various
devices to a practical test,' and experienced sensations peculiar, to" those
who for the first time have been encased in so abnormal a headgear. It
is.our devout wish that the time may
be long ere this apparatus is' required for more • practical purposes,
yet we feel that a long felt want of
inestimable value has heen supplied
in a district where mining disasters
have unhappily been all too frequent.
It is the intention of the government to have the whole equipment
converted into a portable' rescue sta-
tlon for rapid transportation to the
adjacent mines, arid although the car
for (his purpose has riot yet been Installed, it Is, satisfactory to know that
the apparatus is complete iri all other
respects', and ready for work should
the occasion arise.
Wo understand that it is possible
to equip this rescue apparatus with a
device for telephonic communication,
and if,wo may be permitted,to offer
criticisms, or' suggestions,-wo would
strongly advocate tho adoption of this
Invaluable adjunct. It would also appear to us that reductlori of weight
Is a desideratum that could he , accomplished' without decrease of efficiency, and whilst realizing that the
parts must necessarily be so constructed that they will resist outward
as well, as inward pressure, we think
that the necessary strength, in the
oxygen cylinder could be obtained by
the use of a composition such a
alluminized steel, which, while possessing the resilience of the .latter,
has seven times its ductility, thus
combining the maximum strength with
the minimum weight.
, „ON  THE C.
P.  R.
* Some years'ago owing to the storm
conditions trains were running very
irregularly on the main, line _of the
C. P. R. and two stockmen who, while
waiting for a belated passenger train,
had imbibed somewhat too freely, approached the bulletin board ,to ascertain the latest regarding ■ the arrival
of "No. 1 arid one of them after reading that."No. 1-will arrive at 26:20,"
turned to his companion and said:
"26:20, what the deuce time is that?"
To which the ready reply was made,
"20 minutes past 2 tomorrow morning,-
~you7 chTimp.""^ ThiiT" reply created
amusement -and .. wonderment among
the bystanders and examination being
made of the bulletin board it. was
discovered that it. really should* have
read. 20.20, but the. upper portion of
the* first cipher having been blurred
In .the dim light it was not to .bo-
wondered at that the mistake had

A special meeting of tho council
was held in the .council chamber on
Tuesday, Nov. lst, the mayor occupying his usual seat and Aldermen
Johnson, Whito and Kennedy in their
respective places.
Tho "principal business transacted
was the consideration of the claims
made by various citizens that they
had paid their taxes and had not received credit therefor. Considerable
discussion, arose, several of the taxpayers interested being on hand to
present their . views on the subject.
The purpose of the , discussion ' was
that of enabling the council to arrive at the amount of the claim to be
demanded from the security company

This body is scheduled to reach.
Fernio on tho 21st inst., for the purpose of making inquiry Into, (a) the
needs of existing industries in respect of labor, (b) ' tho quality of
labor which is available and (c) the
needs of such labor fpr industrial
training and technical education.
Tho plan for tho work of tho commission at' each placo has ordinarily
been as follows: A local committee
representing the mayor, the board of
trade, the manufacturers' association,
the educational institutions, tho
trades and Jabor interests, and any
organization identified with the training of women, mak*es provision for a
place in which .to hold tho sessions
of the commission.
i Kach establishment.visited or body
interviewed is asked a series of questions, pertinent to their work; the data
is then forwarded to the government
at Ottawa to be taken up later with
a view to the furthering of the pur-,
pose for which this commission was
created viz., to ascertain the needs
and present equipment of the Dominion as respects industrial training and
technical-education ancl to investigate
obtain in other countries, particularly
In Great Britain, France, Germany and
the United States. ' .
• This work has the endorsation of
the Eeveral provincial premiers; ancl
may be regarded as. the initial step
looking towards the establishment of
Institutions that aro already flourishing in the countries aforementioned.'.

commission are:

The part of the hysterical and

Railway Men are. Now in
Closer Unity
LONDON,.Nov. 5.—During the past
week two great bodies of organized
workers, the Miners' Federation of
Great Britain and the Amalgamated
Society of Railway Servants, held
their annual congres.;, the former at
Edinburgh, the,latter at Barry, noar
Cardiff, iii South Wales. ' "
Railway  Men' More  Lively.
' T) e railway men's congress was undoubtedly  the-   livelier   nnd   more   instructive of (he iw.o.   Theirs has been
a strange fate in the past.
Though originators of tho famous
resolution of the trade union congress
of ISM, which established the labor
party, their leader, Richard Bell, was
the first to revolt against tho new
niovement unci to leave lt.for the sake
of ,the Liberal party, for which 'act
of "courage." "he ,has now been re-
"warded by a comfortable berth in thp
board of trade. ,.
Similarly, though holding in their
hand the most vital artery of capitalist'; society, thc railway mon stil.1
belong lo' Ihe worst paid and the "most
ruthlessly exploited category of labor
fully 20 per cent, of them (over
00,000), according to official statistics,'
working over 12 hours a day ancl
earning less than ?"> a week.
Big Revolt.
Three years ago they broke out in
a big revolt and threatened a general
strike, but the niovement was smothered under tho weight of a national
scheme of conciliation and arbitration,
imposed upon them by Lloyd-George,"
then   the   president of the'board of
♦ ♦♦«►♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦
(Crowded out last week.)
The  members   of  the Independent
Order of Odd Fellows of Coleman No
3G,   arid   Pincher   No.  5,   assisted  by
Grand   Master  Shear of  Fort,  Sask.,
P." G. Tulley of Calgary, and Deputy
Grand  T.- Haines,   of   this   town,  instituted a new lodge of the order at
llla'irmore.   The exemplification.of the
work   upon   a   very  large   school   of
candidates , was   remarkably  well  exemplified and the degree teams came
in for* a large share of well merited
praise. ' The  baby lodge  of. Alberta
starts out. under very favorabl.circumstances, and is particularly fortunate
in  the  excellency  of  the  caliber  of
those  occupying  the  various , chairs.
The following or the officers:    Rev.
,T.  F.  Hunter,'N. G.;  George Young,
V. G.;  J. D. S. Barrett, 11. S.; J. W.
McKay, F_ S.; A. T. lleney, Warden;
.). G. Smith, Conductor; E. A. Elliott,
Treasurer;   J. James, Chaplain.    Tho
grand  master, in making his speech,
congratulated   all   tlioso  who  participated in the ceremony, and expressed
the desire that., tho new lodge might
Monday last tho Coleman lodge of
Odd Fellows had a social evening on
the occasion of'the visit from the
grand master and past grand master.0
These two officials delivered speeches
relative to the growth of Odd Follow-*
ship throughout Canada. There were
several others whose names we do not
recall, who also made short addresses,
but we may say without flattery that
the speech of the evening was that
of our N. G„ who certainly surpassed
himself in the excellent manner in
which he acquitted himself in the
arduous task of addressing the gathering on subjects of interest to all tbat
were assembled. ,- ,
Sister C. Dunlop, G. W., of the
Rebekah lodge', when called upon,
stated that she was but a poor speech-
maker, and although she is a lady we
feel somewhat inclined to dispute her
statement; and think that those who
were there will agree with us that
she is just as capable as any, of the
sterner sex.
The whist drive and dance was a
doubly successful event and the Coleman band are the recipients of hearty
congratulation * from   nil  participants.
The winners ,'of   the   whist drive

most, influential  of all    the    railway
men's associations,, aud    the    spirit
which" it has exhibited, on the present
occasion of its  congress is certainly
very hopeful.
On  the  first  business  day  of  the
congress    a    resolution   was  carried
without dissent, demanding stato own-
—er-ship_oL__il__$s.       - .
sot; First Prize (gents), Mr. W. Pearson, marbellzGd clock.
The record-breakers on the low side
were (ladies), Mrs. H. Clarke, handkerchief, and .(gents), Mr. Goodeve
who was the recipient of a box of
children's  building blocks'.  -     ...
The attendance was exceptionally
largo which speaks" volumes for* the
not forgotten. "Accidents of this nature are, frequent on the tipple. This
makes two within a week and the men
weighing coal are in great danger
of "losing-their lives with, trips coming out-at such a speed.
We hope that this wlH be remedied
in a short while and that the scales
will be moved near the mouth of the
tunnel. . ''      '
The Neiy Michel Young' Men's
club "gave a-dance on Tuesday last
in" Martin's hall which, turned out to
be a great success and .dancing was
kept up until the wee sma hours of
the morning. ,-The New Michel, orchestra supplied the'music to the sat-,
isfaction of everybody. -Alee Derbyshire ' and Robert Parks most ably
acted as floor <- managers. George
Fisher, who so kindly lent, his teams,
was kept busy bringing, and taking
back the large crowd that attended
from Old Michel. Everyone enjoyed
themselves and look forward to more
social occasions like this.
* The children of Mrs. Horatio Nelson
have been sent to the Children's
Aid Society Home at Vancouver,
where they will receive proper attention which the mother could not
give. them.
- o .
The stork has been hovering over
Michel and,as a result Mr. and Mrs.
Joseph Mason have a fino daughter.
Andy Waugh, late president, of the
Corbin local, U. M. W. of A., is in
town, where he intends taking up his
abode for a whilo. The coal company at Corbin are laying a large
number, of men off on account of
having no ordors for their coal.
The officers of the "Michel Prize
band intend holding a competition for
the following on the 21st of November: Melodian contest, skipping rope
contest for girls under 16 and a
sentimental duct."contest. .This"promises to be one of those.rare and enjoyable times and a large number of
entires are expected. Admission 50

"The football league medals are on
exhibition at the Trites-Wood store.
Anyone wishing to see same can now
do so,   .
The football league meeting was
held at Coleman on the 22nd, when
the following delegates were present:
Michel, James Sharp, (Chairman),
and Sam Moors; Robert Levitt, secretary of the league, Bellevue; J.
Oliphant, Coleman; J. Graham.- The
following business .was transacted:
That the .minutes of the last meet-'
ing be adopted as read.
That three clubs form a quorum.
That the league game between
Bellevue and Coleman that was stopped owing to ""darkness'be called a
draw. The teams have agreed to
this,        .
That Rougheads case bo dropped,
as the wrong man had been reported.
Say Large Quantity of Gas Was Present in Los Angeles Times.
Office.     ".   ,,.
LOS ANGELES, Cal.", Nov. 1;—Witnesses in the Times explosion--caso
testified before the coroner's jury that
free gas was present in large volumo
ih the. building the night.the explosion* occurred. These witnesses, who
were telegraph operators in the building, "testified that they liad lost their
positions with the Western "Union
Telegraph company because of having
made tlieir statements'.
Railroad  Trust.
At present the railways of the
■United Kingdom have become practically one huge trust, ancl apart from
its effect on tho community, tho fact
is having a most, disastrous effect, on
the railway servants.
The matter was well put by J. TI.
Thomas, M. P.. in a lengthy speech.
"There was not," ho remarked, "a*
single company in tho kingdom but
had a private working agreement, with
others, and the men wero now left to
choose between a" largo monopoly, run
solely for profit, and stale ownership
for the community's benefll.
"If during tho next six months 500
men wore discharged, on nny sorvlco
there would be such a hue and ery
thnl tho compnny concerned would b'e
brought to its knees. But the companies wero too clever, Rather than
effect n wholesale dismissal ihey Introduced n stringent medical test, and
by tills subterfuge, woro ablo to ills-
peso of the mon they did not want."
Work   Eightcen-Hour  Dny,
Another motion which-was carried
by lho congress hy an overwhelming
majority wus mm relating to an eight-
hour day.
' In Ireland, snld a delegate from
Dublin, rnllwny men worn compelled

The Solution of the
Labor Problem
By .Louis Alster. 77
* While defenders    of'  the   present
social system have been denying' tbo
' existence, of    economic    classes    in
- America,'-there   are   those   who- are
gradually a"\yakening to this fact, that
.." not only are there' classes in America,
- but that.tht- strife • between , them-is
growing more, intense daily. -
, ; 7"Clifford 'Howard,, in the" North American  Reviow  for  September,  diag-
..'npses the. nature of the struggle be-
- tween" capital' and labor as a "cankerous, thorn' in . the flesh." Something
riiiist be done to save the dying patient, i. e.;• capitalism, and as a rem-
*   edy he,revives the post-humous theory
■    of    William    Howard,    originated 15
years ago.
It  is  a scheme  to  annihilate  tlie
class  struggle  at    the    time  of  its
1 origin.   It met.with little favor owing
- to tho prematurity of economic "conditions. *    „   '.
'  Tlie remedy proposes the establishment of a national unit of value by
the, federal govornment,   justri.as   it
■regulates the unit for money, weight',
measure, and time, and so shall the
'.government regulate, a unit of value
foi" labor of all classes.
. Neither employe nor em'pldyer will
have a voice, in the determination of
tho value of this unit.    The unit of
. value shall  be based  and .measured
by tho commodity wheat.   This commodity has always been the keynote
of;.all other commodities.   If a day's
unskilled labor be equal, to, 60 pounds
of" flour as the unit, and tlie. price of
•-   flour is two cents a pound, the wages
7   of an* unskilled laborer will be $1.20.
... If-matters not-.if the price of flour
.   goes up or'down, the wages are tb
be*equal to the.unit of value.   If the
price of wheat is three cents a pound,
then the wages will be $1.80 per clay.
This, briefly,'' is the substance of the
scheme to save capitalism.
Clifford Howard is evidently -lab'or-
,.-ing under an illusion in believing that."-
. the working class in America" can be
won over by the assurance that their
- -v-ages will not drop.    He ' fails,   to
understand the'evolution of tho men-,
tal'altitude of tlie working cla*ss. He
- might learn a great deal if he were
**   to' study the development of the So-
■.*'    cialist'- movement  in. Europe in? general and Germany ia'particular.
,.  . In Germany (he. working class has
* -been -improving its   economic  condi-
power is in their .'favor. Washington
is. but the reflex of Wall street and
it-matters-little to the working class
whether it is Wall street or Washington that rules them so long as the
capitalist class rules.
As for the.Democratic party, it is
but an outworn instrument of a dead
class, that is, the "middle class.
* The ' struggle -between" capital hid
labor will continue until the basis of
this struggle shall .be .abolished, namely, ' the " private ownership of natural
resources and the means of., production. ■   *-.      ;•.;-■
Thero can be "no peace between
capital and labor until capitalism,
"which Is the real barrier to peace,
shall be abolished. It, is the mission
of the working class, through its
economic and political organization,' to
abolish class rule through the 'estab-'
lishment of;the social ownership of
lhe means of production. This will
be the beginning of real democracy.
■.- From hundreds- the toll has gone
to thousands and from* thousands to"
ten thousands and from' . ten thousands to hundreds of thousands and
from . hundreds of thousands to" millions . of hard-earned dollars.
Arid-who pays the toll? "Who bears
the burden of the land? Can idleness' pay toll?. Can useless labor pay
toll? - Do capitalists pay. toll?
Whence comes the millions collected by the lord of the land" Who is
the bearer of this ever-growing burden? -       „
Well—ir. is aa old story. John Gray,
who - lived many years ago, told- the
story and many others ."have told.it
again and again and perhaps better.
But Gray's words will-, serve our-purpose. ' . .
"We have* endeavored to show,"'
said Gray in 1S31, "that the real in-'
come of the. country, which consists,
in tlie quantity of wealth annually
created -by the labor of the " people,
is takon ■from its producers chiefly
by the rent of land, by the rent of
houses, by the interest1 ori money and
by the profit of persons who buy
their labor- from them at one price
and sell it at- another."   *
The' burden of land is the .debt—
the debt humanity .owes to those
who own the. land, and as an old
Greek once said—debt make free nic:i
slaves. ' '    ■ '
Judge Richardson Decrees That Favor-
. ing Union Makes Municipal
Contract   Void.
By  Robert  Hunter.
If thoro is any strange thing on this
earth it is the burden of'lho land.
The land" is said .to bo a gift of
God to his children.   ,
Like* the air, the water and the
sun, land, it is said, was intended for
the good of man. .    ' '
' Like the woods, the coal mines, the
ore mines and. the oil wells, land, it
is said, was given its a precious gift
to man.       *■ , ""
'.Why, therefore, has land become a
burden, a crushing burden on the back
of Labor?    ",
Ireland is a nation that has been
ruined again and again by the burden of the land. .-,;.-
-   At the door of the. land there stood
a man collecting toll and no.matter
how the Irish labored the.only one
enriched was lie who, collected toll.
7 When  the   land   Improved  the  toll
huTC-fit-eci, ..'When' the   worker   ouilt
better  houses' and . better  barns  the
toll increased.
' When the worker improved his crops
his stock,  his fences and his roads
the toll'increased.    "
-  And   tlio   land   bf   Ireland * became
a burden'to Ireland and the man who
collected, toll became the curse of Ireland.    .                        -   *".-
Even in-the clay of famine tho man
was there insisting on his toll, ancl
at last the Irish ran away from the
burden of tlie land in Ireland.
..-Thoy fled from famine and.misery
The attention- of tho public, as ..well
as health and municipal authorities,
has,been directed,during the past few
months to the purification,',of water
by means of the addition of small,
very small quantities of hypochlorite
of' °calcium, otherwise known as
chloride of lime. We have been led
to believe the process is a very
simple one; indeed so simply that
a child might almost direct the treatment.. It is-.true-that in .case.of
emergency, municipal and health
authorities may, under' the direction
of a sanitary engineer, improvise the

best results, and where a municipality will pay for the* services of an

compensated for by the results obtained. These facts are ' clearly
shown by the work and' operation of

As economic conditions develop, so
does the desire for' a" larger .'share
■of its product develop in tho working
class. Along with the development of
capitalist production develops the consciousness of' the workingmen' to its
class interest*. Labor comes to realizo
tliat ho is lho solo producer of,all
woalth and that ho will nover bo satisfied until he receives his full product.
U* The* . illusion     of     tho   proposed
| - scheme might bo unfolded from another angle. According to jUr, Howard
lho government is something sopnrnto
and apart from any-economic cliiss.
Tho falsity of this position Is. palpable

BOSTON, Nov. 1.—.Union labor met
another defeat yesterday when Judge
Richardson, in the. Superior court, decreed . that " ihuriicipal corporations
must not' favor organized bodies of
union men.'
The "case in question was one in
which the" city of Boston let a contract to the-*Dolan Electrical Company to furnish, electrical appliances
for Curtis hall, .in Jamaica Plain.
The Dolan company's bid was $4,-i_7,
or $2 higher- than that of the Jamos
Wilkinson company, which brought a
suit, through 12 taxpayers, to have
the city restrained from giving the
contract lo Dolan, Wilkinson alleged
that he was refused tho contract on
the ground that" he was unfair to
union labor.
Discourses on Union Labor.
In allowing the - Injunction Judge
Richardson spoko at some length
upon the question of unions and said:
.'Superintendent of Buildings Fish
had a right ,to put in his contract
clauses relating to the quality of
w,ork tohe done, but the language of
the' document is very unfortunate—il
isn't a test.'
' If there was a condition in this contract which required, tlie contractor to
favor, any class of men, any corporation, any organized society, party,
church oi- social organization, or show
any favoritism, or partiality, there
isn't a person in this room who
wouldn't say it is illegal. I think, it
wrong tliat Wilkinson did not get
this .contract, because he did not employ union men, or,in some way or
other was unfair to union labor.   --
Favor Makes Contract Void.
" "We can't leave out the consideration in these case of what the heads
of unions are trying to do.. Tliere
are' corporations and firms in this
city who will not employ union labor.
Why should any officer of the city of
Boston pay more than necessary to
have* good work done to favor some
organization? He,might as well favor
the Odd, Fellows, the Masons, or "the
Knights of Columbus.'
"I think that this*1 contract was
given to tlie man who got it because
Fish was informed that Wilkinson was
unfair to union labor.. The city has
no right to use public money lo bolster, up any organization. I don't think
the .contract ought to be enforced, arid
I shall issue an injunction in the case,
restraining it-from-being enforced.-'-'

CCORDING io the voters' list of November 1st,
.1909, tliere were 2,750 persons entitled to vote
in the Fernie Electoral District, whereas according
to tlie list of May 2nd of the current year there
were only 2,0G8, which, with the addition of 28
transferred from other districts made- a total of
2,096, thus showing a diminution of 654. To, anyone giving these figures more than a cursory
thought thc question must inevitably present itself.
"Whence thc difference in the voting strength of a
community in so short a period of six months?
Had there heen an earthquake or an epidemic
it would be explicable, but inasmuch as neither of
these catastrophic events lias happened wc must
look elsewhere for an answer.
While realizing the enforced migration that
takes place in all industrial centers and tlfttt the
grim reaper ever and anon steps in to deprive citizens of all participation in mundane affairs thereby .effecting a decrease,* yet on the other hand
there are new arrivals in every constituency to pEf-
" set, at least partially the loss sustained * from the.
- causes above referred to. Making every possible
1,-etwccn deductions and additions as outlined assume proportions that necessitate an investigation
in order to ascertain tlie reason therefor.' Basing
our argument on the incontrovertibility of these
deductions we must, perforce, seek farther afield
for a satisfactory solution to tlie puzzle.
"We wish iL to lie clearly understood that we are
aware oC the fact that the voters' list requires
priming from time to time in order that it may be
as nearly accurate as is possible, but we do most
emphatically object to,thc pruning being accomplished with the aid of a bludgeon.
Every individual legally entitled to the franchise,
no matter what his political affiliations may be,
should lie afforded every opportunity to exercise
that right without being hampered by the.actions
of thoso whose motives Iherefor nro solely sordid
'We have made us of the word "sordid" and we
not only mean whnt wo sny, but purposo to emphasize and amplify.
The printiiig of the" names* of those objected to
is paid for nt the rate of so much for each name
consequently tho more numerous the quantity the
greater tho bill to be .debited to thc Provincial
Government, hence it is to the pecuniary advantage of thoso doing the work to swell tho list to
the'utmost consistent with the policy of not killing lhe gooso that Jnys thc golden egg. The retort hns been made, nnd in fact lias been advanced
ns an excuse that such tactics liko a two-edged
sword cut both ways, and therefore why find
fault Imcnuse just ns ninny of one political color
us another may bo nf fueled.
To this we roply wo do not care whether this
were I rile tu* not, it does in nowise alter Ilie moral
I'oivi! of lho principle involved nnd ns for matters
of t,'\pi'ilieiioy in sueh n case avo-deem l.c-Hidi* Uic
-■iii-Nt ion ciilsivly.    This excuse, if kucIi  we «"nii
remit the cheque in payment. Further comment
on that score is superfluous. ?
When we took up this matter before it was
learned that the major portion of the objections
had been made in the names of two individuals
only and as it was a moral certainty that these two
individuals could not know all of those against
whom they had filed objections then there must
have been some ulterior motive behind their action.
Ih the present case there' is again a wholesale
butchery and having been interviewed by many of
those whose.disfranchisement has been, attempted,
we have taken the trouble to ascertain the name
of the objector and learn that this time as in the
previous instance the name of but one individual
is signed and he was not acquainted with Jhose
against whom he had filed the objection, and
again we grasped the situation at once that 5t was
the work of the same party that had engineered
the prior deal, but had conveniently* kept in the
background leaving others to be the cat's paw.
That those that are entitled to be kept on the list
by making application therefor does not in tlie
least excuse this way of doing. No man should
run the risk of losing thc right to vote solely because another is looking for the dollars that may.
lie gathered in for the printing bill and it is high
time? that some mefins should be adopted that Avill
compel those who make objections to furnish a
valid objection and failing to do so that they may
be subject to a penalty, thus we may expect that
this will have the effect of stopping the milking
of the-government cow. • l
Form B.
Form of* notice to be given to the registrar of
voters: ...
To the Registrar of Voters 'for Electoral
District:   " -■
I object to the, name of W. S., of (Describe person objected to as he is described in the list, of
persons claiming to vote, or Register of Voters as
ihe ease may be) being placed (or- retained)  on
the Register of Voters for the .**,.. '. Electoral
District .(or Polling Division of the	
Electoral District), on the following grounds (here
specify the grounds of objections.) - Signed C. D.)
(Objector to state here his qualification, his pro
fession, trade or calling, and residence.)
. • The weakness of this objection is that anyone
may make an objection and the only restraint that
maj' be effective is that no mau will raise an objection if he be honorable and those of opposite
proclivities may thus rob a man* of his suffrage
with impunity because there is no demand made
to- swear him nor any penalty attached for unjustly-objecting. '.'.,.-,,-■
'We find in the later list of objections thc name
of the objector is one who is well known,to ur as
the soul of honor and that his action wns absolutely free from any wilful intent to do nny man
wrong and that lie hns been lead to attach his
name nt the behest of another without realizing
the purport, of the document signed, ancl while
this is indicative of a lack of caution, on thc
other hnnd it*wns a caso of misplaced confidence
nnd the onus of responsibility for the act devolves upon the individual whose fertile brain conceived tho idea,
liribery, corruption, impersonation nnd.the other
corrupt practices nre not only condemned,' but arc
punishable, but this wholesale slaughter hns a very
far-reaching effect as it i.s a method whereby representative or democratic government becomes
n complete farce nnd in its stead wo havo nn nuto-
eracy, Very likely thoso who committed this wrong
ngninst his fellow-mnn do not grasp tlio extent of
the injury they mny enuse and wo doubt that it
wns anything more than cupidity that was the
prime motive.
In conclusion wc may say that we do not feel
ono whit disturbed that the result of tho election
went ngninst us nnd would inveigh just hh Htrougly
ngninst, such luetics if thoy were prneticcd by our
side of tho political fence, but wo do unqualifiedly
condemn the net ion of those guilty nf such
schemes thnt nre put into operation primarily for
iiicniclnry ■reasons nnd lmvo tho effect of robbing
men of the opportunity in vote nnd by ko doing
perhaps thwni'1 Din* will of Ihe public.

are down at Hosmer receiving Instructions in the proper manner to
manipulate the Draeger apparatus.
It is the intention of the company to
form teams for the different mines so
that duly qualified. men will be on
hand in case of the emergency arising.
It Is desired that those who take up
this work are also well up in ambulance work so that after effecting
the rescue they are capable of rendering first, aid when called upon to
do so. *..
On Saturday last a •mysterious accident happened to James Steel,
driver boss In No. 5 mine. It would
appear that he was attempting to stop
a runaway horse and in some manner not yet ■ ascertained he ,. was
crushed ..by loaded cars as he was
found in front of one when picked
up. His injuries were found to be
quite serious and ho" was removed to
tho Pernie hospital on a special train
where he now lies, but we are pleased to say that he is0 progressing as
well as can" be expected ■ considering
the nature of his hiirts.
Owing to the fact that there was no
cold water in,the wash house last
Tuesday some of the men without any
regard "for decency while totally divested of clothing, walked outside to
the creek to get the necessary cold
water.. This is particularly disgraceful, as the wash house immediately
fronts on* the road where women and
children are constantly .passing and it
is to be hoped that the company will
take the necessary steps to prevent
the' possibility of a repetition of such
a scandalous state of affairs.

Coleman football team- were visitors here on Saturday last, October
29th, the occasion being the play for
the semi-final for the Mutz cup. The
weather was not very propitious, as
the wind was blowing a perfect hurricane. At the termination of the
game the honors were equally divided,
the score being Coleman 2, Bellevue'
2. It was therefore decided to replay the "match on Monday, the 31st.
On the occasion of the replay a
large crowd of enthusiasts lined up.
No changes had been made In the
Bellevue team, but Coleman were
minus their center forward, Kellogg.
On the Saturday's form, it certainly
appeared that victory would come our
way, but unfortunately our hopes were
doomed to disappointment. The defence of the Bellevue team left nothing to be desired, but the forwards,
with the exception of Varley, were
certainly off their game. Goal Keeper Fisher played a really, splendid
game, which was most heartily applauded by the supporters of both
teams. Time and time again . it
looked like dollars to cents that the
Coleman forwards .would put the,ball
through, but in spite of the fact that
they had ten or twelve corner kicks
in the' first half of the game, half
time recorded "no score."
On the resumption of the' game for
the second . half, Coleman certainly
had the advantage, and about six minutes- from time were successful in
placing the hall between the posts
from a corner kick. During the last
few minutes of the game -Bellevue
made strenuous "-efforts ..-to 'equalize,
and were within an ace of succeeding. " Our defence was excellent
.throughout, and had they received the
help from* the forwards which was
given them on the Saturday previous,
the result would undoubtedly have
been reversed. ' " - ;

, Building Trade Strike.
A strike which may, have far-reaching results has occurred in the building* trade in Manchester. The operative plumbers have struck work on
the question of terms of employment.
The plasterers and other trade
unionists in tho building trade have
also struck, work In sympathy with
the plumbers, and the employers now
threaten the men'with a general lockout unless the.matter is settled within a few days." The plumbers at a
meeting hnve just decided that the
terms of settlement are to ■ include
that operative plumbers only are to
be employed on glazing after September 1, 1911, and that the men then
employed as glaziers should, as their
places became vacant, be succeeded
by operative plumbers.
unless 30 non-unionists working in
the pits were stopped or joined ,the
federation. The non-unionists having
taken the. latter course, there will be
no strike.
The total number of vacancies filled
during the past month by the labor
exchanges were 45,314, or about 1,510
a ;day. Thirteen new exchanges were
opened  during the month.
The demand for workers exceeds
the supply in the woolen trade, and
for women in the clothing and lauu-
dry trades.
. Mineral-Guard Levitt was recently
suspended for a month by the North-
Eastern railway on the ground of his
alleged delay in the working of a

to cause a strike, but the company
having had all the fact laid before
them by the men's deputation, they
have decided not to further punish
Levitt, and have removed the remaining 15 days af his suspension, 'lhe
matter is now consequently closed,

Mining Conditions
in Nova Scotia
Low wages, debt in the company's
store, and because of these pay days
with never a cent coming out of th-*.
pay office is the lot of hundreds of
mine workers in Nova Scotia. Evory
miners' meeting, whether P._)V. A. or
U. M. W. of A., is deluged ."continually
with solicitations for help from lhe unprovided human wrecks of the coal
mines. The mine workers of this
province arc not only unable to provide themselves with the current
necessities of life, but if thoy would
hold their mlsornblo jobs they must
lenrn to keep their mouihs shut at
the dictates of thc boss, Tho man
who has the: pluck to stand up among
his follows ancl advocate any-trade
union not. approved of by his employer shall do so at the peril of. having
sentence of death by starvation passed
upon him and his family. Our "captains of industry" who never tiro in
their hypoci-iliC'.il ravings about "individual initiative".demnncV'that their
every employe shall be docile, obedient and tractable to all their wishes,
especially in regard to trade union,
mailers. Dend or break is the'doom
of every manly'man employed in or
around tho mines.
The insatiable greed for dividends
is grinding the manhood out of thc
Nova Scotia mine workers and has
forced t,heir wages away below,, that
of any other of tlfelr class who mako
any pretence to organized effort, on
this sentiment. This little article is
written to show them how they are
robbed in order ~" to provide large
profits for" their employers, ancl, if
possible, get them into one organization that is strong enough to defend
themselves, their wives and children
fi-om tlie heartless rapacity of professional dividend hunters.
We  propose  to  show  that   govern-
.ment reports that the mine workers
' of Nova Scotia work a longer day,
are paid less, while their product is
selling at a higher rate than the organized mine workers of British
Columbia. \
The only reason why the mine
workers of Nova Scotia are in their
present plight is because of their disorganized condition for the last dozen
years. Wo want you, ~i.lv. Workman,
1o read over these extracts fi'om government reports carefully' und thin!'

~TOMttrriTtl arlTinrtage—for—you—to—ge!-
into a trade union that is going to
demand a great deal higher wages' for
its members in this province, and so
make their homes brighter ancl families happier. Tho IT. M. \V. of A. is
the only mine workers' organization
strong enough, in sight today, to do
this for you. Aro you going to help
in this campaign or.iro you going to
lay back and let others do the fighting?
Thc first government report we
shall cpioto from is by R. H, Coats,
who was appointed by the Dominion
government "to^make an investigation
into the cause of wholesale prices in
Canada during the past 20 years,
namely from 1890 to 1909 inclusive,"
and who submitted his report to the'
government May 10, 1910. You can*
get this report for yourself by* applying to your local representative at
Ottawa'. Mr,, Coat's investigation covered no less than 230 different commodities that are in daily demand and
use. lie gives thc wholesale price
obtained " for . each ' of them, and
amongst ihe others he" gives the
wholesale prico for coal in the Montreal market, where, the thing you
produce and get your living from is
sold. lie also gives the wholesale
prices of coal sold by the Crow's Nest
Pass Coal1 company at the mines in
British Columbia. The tables of
prices given for these two markets
cna'be found on pages 192 and--19G
of his report.. Look them up for yourself!
We will give in parallel columns
from these'1 two tables the prices obtained the first day of each month for
tho years 1901 and 1909 in each of the
above named markets, and we ask you
Mr. Nova Scotia mine worker, to try
and answer the question to yourself,
why you are paid so much less' than
thc fellows' in British Columbia if it
is* not the direct rosult of your half-
organized condition?

You -will"'notice that the British

the coal companies "got on tne, stand

higher wages.
How did the wages of these two
coal companies compare with each
other that year? Well, here is another little book issued by the Dominion government that tells exactly how
the wages of the Nova' Scotia mine
worker compared with' his fellows in'
British Columbia in the, year 1901.
The book was issued in 1907 and is
called ".Census Statistics, Bulletin No.
1, Wage-earners by Occupations." We
quote from pages 1 and 3 where it
is recorded that the mining class of
British Columbia worked In the year
1901 9.11 months and each ,man earned
ori an average of $6-44.81, whilo the
men in Nova Scotia worked 10.60
mbnthsand earned $381.45. How does
that strike you, Mr. Nova Scotia
Mine Worker? Work over a month
longer for $236.36 less than your- fellows in British Columbia, whose employer got 43 cents a ton less for his
product than yours got for the coal
you dug. Oh, but you are easy-
So much for the year 1901. Let us

You get such wages not because .your
employer cannot afford more, but because through fear of th'o boss or
through utter indifference about your
own welfare; you stay out of tho'only
trade union which is able and willing,
with your support, to get you more.
Is ll not a fact that many of you
have allowed yourselves lo be divided
from your fellows by the henchmen
of tho employers, the leaders of the
so-called Provincial Workmen's association, an organization that was voted
out of existence Juno 21, 190S, and reorganized, and financed by the men
who nro robbing you. for the very
purpose of dividing the strength of

Tragedies of No.Work.
Two tragic tales of. unemployment
were told in East End polico com-ts
a few days ago.
. One was of John Pardoe, a Canning
Town boilermaker, who, after being
employed for i" 20 years by, one firm
and 12 years by another, found himself without work, witli a wife and
family to support...
. The last straw, came when- a furniture company asked * him to pay arrears amounting to £1 17s. 6d. Par-,
doe cut his throat, and .then went to
a policeman,-who took him to a hospital. The magistrate remanded him,
The other story was of Edward
Pollard, a clerk, also of Canning
Town,* who took three blocks of wood
froui the street, to make a flro for
his wife and child.
-Pollard has been out of work since
January, and a policeman who visited
his house said that he found very
little food.
,"I. had nothing to oat since Thursday/', Pollard told the .magistrate.
"Ofi Saturday night a friend gavo. me
V/.d„ and I took tho blocks toi boll
the'kettle. ,
"For days ancl days I have been
.without food, and weeks and weeks
I have had * insufficient food. I had
to walk to London hospital and undergo, an operation, and walk back home
without a bite of food.
"I have been to the labor exchange
and to the docks, and can get no
work."'    .   '. '
Pollard was bound over under the
Probation act, and the magistrate said
that the missionary would help him.
