SEATTLE, Sept. 3.—With, sufficient
equipment to make a dash for the pole
or explore hidden Tibet, a party of
thirty-eight experts,' engineers, superintendents and miners will invade Alaska next month' for tlio unromantic
purpose of mining coal back of Katal-
la." The expedition-Is. sent'by the
bureau of mines, and its movements
are shrouded in governmental red tape
mystery. For the last few weeks advance guards of'the expedition have
been collecting an $18,000 .outfit in
Seattle. The party will leave for the
north on Sunday.' ■•"
- The .real purpose of .the expedition, which- is headed by no'less a
person than Dr. J. A. Holmes, director of the bureau of mines is to
mine it and how it can most easily be
learn whether the coal of Alaska can
be mined, how much It will cost to
mine it and how it.can mots easily be
handled.    . <      " .
A very sad accident occurred last „
(Thursday)night" about 8 o'clock on n
the coal tipple of the C.N. P. Coal
Co. at Coal Creek.     Ralph Gash, a '
young English1 lad of 17 years, who
was recently promoted to the position
of electric motor conductor at No. 1 7
South Mine, while following the ordinary course of his duties was run over
by the trip cars, receiving a number of
injuries.     A special  train  conveyed
the unfortunate lad to town, and although he was given all posslblo medical 'ministrations,  remained  unconscious until death supervened about 8
a.m. this _ (Friday)  morning.
So far as we have been able to learn"
tho deceased was aboutf,to uncouple
tho cars, and losing Ms balance fell-
beneath them, with the sad ending as
above stated. .  Great sympathy is felt
for the grief stricken parents, as the ■
lad was ono that evinced a cheerful
readiness at all times to lend a help-'

speak highly of his kindly disposition.

If tbo, 27,703,644 short tons of coke
manufactured in 1911 in.ovens of beehive type'had been'made in. by-product
ovens value of by-products 'thus recovered,' which were wasted in the beehive
. ovens, would ■ have been between $35,-
000,000 and ?'_0,000,000. -This interesting-statement is made by. Edward ,-W:.
Parker, of the U. S. Geologcal Survey,
in an .aclvance chapter on coke from
the volume "Mineral Resources" for
1911. This estimate is based on value
of by-products. resulting from the-7,-
847,845'tons bf coke made ln-by-product ovens in 1911. Value of these
by-products recovered' in 1911.; was
equal to value at mines of coal used
In making the by-product coke. Of
course there is ever the question of
the probable status of the tar und ammonia markets should all ovens recover by-products and quadruple the output thereof.1
Frominformation^received by the
Survey from the superintendent of motive power of the Pennsylvania R. R.
Co., Mr. Parker estimates ; that the
quantity of power which might be obtained from the coking operations In
the Connelisville and Lower.Conneils-
vllle districts by.substituting nonrecov-
ery retort'ovens for beehive ovens ^nd
using the heat which is now wasted
would be more than twice the quantity
of power necessary to move every train
on the Pennsylvania between Pittsburg and Harrisburg. ' The amount of
boiler horsepower -obtainable from
these coking districts is estimated by
■-Mr. Parker at about 400,000 horsepower per Hour for every day in the'year.

less directly affected by the chief'industry along the line   of   the Crow
Great emphasis has been placed ^upon
the question of Joss of profit-or.,.the
small percentage thereof obtained, as
a factor in support, of opposition to an
increased wage scale.  , Laymen travelling between Fernie and Coleman have
remarked .that great'losses must re-
. suit on account of the waste that is so
, evident when the bee hive coke ovens
are-belching forth .their , gases..     In
.corroboration thereof we„now have aa
accepted, authority calling attention to
the matter."" The initial"cost of installation would be very heavy, it is true,
the amount to charge otf by the dis-
'might seriously affect the.declaration
or non-declaration .of a dividend.   Still,
in order to have a valid excuse for the'
small profits derived from coal mining the operating companies can.no
longer, ignore the by-product factor and
endeavor to place the bulk of responsibility-, on the labor, cost.     We are
quite alive' to the fact that coal mining companies will continue to operate
their concerns as best appears lo them,
suitable,- regardless     of     criticisms
whether"scientific or-otherwise,   but
our reason for drawing attention .to
the circumstances is more in tho sense
of a rebuttal to the agreement that the,
principal point of nttack sliould   bo
the wago earner's pittance, our contention, being that moro effective economies can be obtained by thc adoption
of wnste eliminating methods than'by
cheese paring tactics. "  We   realize
Sixty thousand men and boys, every
one of'them paid up to AugUBt'l, are
in district of the^mine workers' union.
Never, before,, not even"' in 1900 and
1902, were so many actually paid-up
men in the district union; no less than
15,000 new members have enrolled
since President John P. White began
to tour the district three weeks ago.
John T. Dempsey, the district president and his colleagues, with the aid
of organizers President White ' sent
iiito the district enlisted about 45,000
into the union up to the time President
White came into the district,- -which
was an extraordinary membership under the circumstances.--- The additional
15,000 is due to the aggressive' campaign that has been waged by the district and the assistance coming from
President White in person.
Wherever President White has spoken there has followed a revival of interest and tbe local unions have more
funds today than they "ever had In the
history of the anthracite union. ~lt
is estimated that there are 70,000 men
in the anthracite .mines in.Lackawanna and Luzerne county. ' With 60,000
in the union there are 10,000 still out.
If the increase continues December
will witness a membership in District
1 "which means practically.that every
mine is a union shop,
In view of the fact that the agreement is for four years and that it applies equally to union and non-union
men, the revival is one of the most extraordinary developments in tlie entire
history of fhe national union.; .The
success of the membership campaign is
directly attributed to the fact that the
agreement contains many features that
mean thousands of dollars more .in the
earnings, for the next four years and
the'regulation of working conditions to
such an extent, that there will be more
equality 'in,the distribution -of work
and*prices .tpThe individual worker.
Position of thejOperators
The anthracite operators in"' some
parts of the'region view-with alarm
the great increase iii the membership
of the union, but as a general proposition, the operators have accepted the
belief that It is better for the United
Mine'Workers of America to have,control of labor In the mines than the
Industrial Workers of the World. The
reason for this Is that the' campaigns
of the latter organization have been
characterized frequently with violence,
bloodshed and destruction of property,
whilo'the United Mine Workers of
America havo respected contracts and
produced men whose Integrity and ability has been ono of the most brilliant
pages of Lho world's moor history.
The roversal'of opinion among tho
big operators was , largely" brought
about by tho realization of the practi
cal superintendents on the ground'that
a- continuation of ^ the "old;' practices
and hostility would only tend to interrupt operations and renew the troubles
that were'-so'-' manifest''before John
Mitchell's > organization' came into' the'
region. ''For this reason the mine superintendents are. under.ordersrnot to
inte'rfere^with the organization of men.
They are not encouraged to help it,
but told to keep their hands off and

dues and payable, and some creditors
are demanding payment of the accounts and threatening to proceed against the corporation. The assets of
the corporation are worth from $4,000,'-

STRENUOUS LIFE OF       «   . 7-7' ,
a   Dangerous   Business   When
Man  Crosses the' Dead-Line -
With Trouble on
I have been a strikebreaker for thc
last-six years. In'that'time I have
worked at a good many different trades. I, have been a blacksmith, a pie
baker, a machinist, .a-switchman, a
miner, a steamfitter, a common laborer, and in the last two months I have
been a waiter at .the Waldorf Astoria,
a car conductor .in:Boston, a'fireman
on a coast steamer, and just now am a
longshoreman on one of the big" pievs
on the North River. What my next
job will be I don.t know, "but perhaps
a civil engineer or a mechanical draughtsman, or perhaps, chauffeur of <_
flying machine.
Strikebreaking is'not what It used
to be . There was a time when'1 we
were treated well by our agent and the
company,that employed us. ,. We usee!
to get big money, good board, with n
big .bonus thrown in after the job was
finished, and had not .much to do' but
make a noise. When .Tip Fariey had
a monopoly of the strikebreaking business there was good moneycin it for
everybody, and he retired a"million-
aire. Now there are perhaps sixty or
seventy differeiit^firms, and -special
agents. Some of these spring up as
soon aa-there is a big job on, hire a lot
of help, collect the .money from' the
company, and disappear. '   ,. ,     ;,
Aside from the money consideration, strikebreaking is a dangerotic
profession.', While we are housed and
fed by the company; come, men, especially those; who.have families, 'viU
brave the danger'and oofs ,the deadline to go to tlisk1 hornet; at night.
This 'is a difficult feat, and fraught
with great danger to one's health. ■ I
have seen'a howling mob'just outside,
the gates' ready' to devour any man
that crossed the. dead-line. I myself
have faced il on a job at which.I was
employed for more than six months,
and only slept on the company's preia-,
ises three lights, although I have, seen
a good many brought back cut up aiid
"in a dying condition. Only three
nights ago I- saw, a ma., brought bad-
to the pier badly cut, and later,
watched the ambulance carry.him to
ine^nospuai; r ; ——y—
7 Some strikes are,averted by the
company intimidating .and bluffing the
strikers by what we call waiting time.'
For instance, five years ago, the trainmen, and switchmen- on' , the Great
Northern Pacific talked, for. months
about striking. J J. J, Hill, president
of the road, and strikebreakers, "all
along his line housed in railroad cars
ready for an emergency, and,the result
was that there wns no strike. It was
an expensive plan, keeping all .these
men there for months on full pay, but.
it served its purpose.   •       '
' Ballot Box the Weapon
'Arbitration does not do much good,
as It ls generally not primarily a qiieh-
tlon of wages- but of recognition cf
the union, Tho wages would miip
care of■ themselves, but recognition of
tho union would bo a whip ovor tne
company's head, nnd thc company
knows this. The laboring daBs has
a moro powerful weapon than tho union, , namely, concentrating .its power,
at tho ballot box. When laboring mon
shall havo learned this- leHBon their
employers will bo at their nrnvoy,

As 'we grow in wealth' and population
and people of less fortunate countrle's,
seek our shores with' the hope for better opportunity the'question of theun-
employed becomes more sericus. Compared with European countries we, are
as yet in an undeveloped state, yet
many of our.industries   are   of" the
greatest of their kind in the world.
.With so many millions of fertile acres
either partially,or entirely uncultivated why ^should we be confronted with
an unemployed question of any magnitude?     This question must be answered and to the wage^earher is the
answer of greatest importance.   From
the'soil must comcthe support of all.
The uncultivated condition of our soil
reduces the quantity of the.necesslties
and without any combination "to control  the .price'paid theyproducer as
wall" as that charged  the consumer
would necessarily increase the price
to the consumer and thereby   raise
the cost of living to the^wage-earner.
The great majority of our immigrants
are tillers of the soil.    Yet how small
a per cent do' we find engaging in that
occupation after, their arrival in America.     Met. at the pier by the representatives of large Industries they, are
shipped to the great industrial centers
and captivated by what to them seems
big wages,' enter upon their new life
ignorant of the wage   necessary,  for'
their bare 'existence.     Bouyed up by
the hope and promise that conditions
will become better they are induced
to remain until'there is but. one avenue
of escape.   - Unable to-bear their burdens longer those who are fortunate
enough to have no dependents start on
the tramp with the, hope ot finding
better'employment, thus swelling the"
number of the unemployed, while other   deluded  "immigrants   take   their
places toq again-swell the tide of the
unemployed.   ,And all this time what
is our government attempting to do to
place these immigrants in a position
where they might.follow their1 natural
vocation?   Every • tendency is to ad-
vertise'-our industrial establishments
and little or no effort.is put forth lo
prevent false representations by the
owners' of. these establishments in order that they may secure cheap immigrant labor.     The-alluring life of the
city beckons to the farmer lad, the unprotected immigrants swarm  to  the
same center, while tne soil remains
uncultivated.  ' Is\ it   not time that
more attention was paid to the distribution .of our immigrants   and   those
who  in , our congested ' centres - desire to get away from those conditions
but are unable to do so without assis-
"tanee?    Cburanrbe-clatsed as pater"
nalism to turn our attention,to the de-'
velopment of the nation's greatest as-,
set, "agriculture?" ,Tbe department
of agriculture ■ has ■ done much during
the last few years*- to   demonstrate
the value of scientific farming.   Can
not more be done to secure a greater
farming population to make use-of the
knowledge gained through this department and thus relieve the congested
conditions   in   our Industrial centres?
The consideration of this question embraces the consideration of many others. But still this one question stands
out prominently   above   all    others,
"What ls our government doing to encourage the development of our agriculture, relievo the congested condition  of tho lnbor mnrkot nnd  solve
to somo degree tho quostlon of the unemployed?"
of helpful friendship.
What were the results? As soon
as the' British national strike was declared ended, our men went out of
tnoir way to call a mass meeting, at
which a resolution was unanimously
passed thanking the management for
tbe generous .considerate way in which
everybody had been treated. Our
men were among the earliest to return
to work, and we loaded what were probably the very first cars to be shipped
after the stoppage.
Since then^we have been getting record outputs, and with an- entire absence of , friction, and.in.'the most
friendly,maner we have been able to
arrive at mutually satisfactory settlements in' the hundred and one points
which have arisen in working under
the, new Act.
Did our policy pay? "" Those who
know the sort of prices' which were
obtainable in- England after the resumption of work last spring don!t ask
the question. The far-seeing man who
is. out to .make money knows that' the
smooth running bf his machinery and
his labor are equal essentials and he
does' not forget the human element in
the latter,    * "     ", ' v   #

They appreciate the. value of the old
maxim: "You can catch more flies
with treacle than you can-with vinegar" and govern themselves accordingly. The humane (!)' m__n is kind to the

tactics to" the bipedal burden bearer is
equally profitable.. There are some
yoient Commercialism might be instituted which would frustrate the aims
and objects of the Collectivist, lind we
see spasmodic efforts to this end'being
attempted In the "profit sharing"

started, but they will have about the
same, effectiveness ln staying tho decadence of Capitalism as Loch Lomond
would have to tho extinguishing of the

Eking out an existence by conduct-    ,
ing a paper <in a small coutnry town
Is ever becoming more difficult, and
to us, who know the reason why, it is'  .
amusing to watch the antics of the  ,
supposed, owners   in   their effort to .
hang on.     When,they buy the paper ■
most, of the columns are" filled with
frivolous stories and patent "medicine
ads., the price derived from the ads.
enabling the dealer to sell the paper'
at. a very low rate.     The balance of
the columns the country scribe fills
up -with; local ads., and gossip", except
for a small editorial,,usually borrowed, often without' acknowledging'-  as  -
much. Such editorials either denounce   '
LARGE business concerns or tell, of
the strenuous lives' of the local authorities, who    are   usually LITTLE
business men. - All of which is .but a
polite-modern method of inducing the  •
local men of "importance" to dig up
at least a part of the advertising bill, ,
although this they can ill afford^to do.

P UGENISTS liave been busy of" late and havo
*-'  seriously taken up the question of improving
the ' human race.     Their first international congress has been held, at which much scientific discussion indulged in.     Whilst one or two of the
speakers referred to the effect which environment
had in such matters, the congress denoted its consideration chiefly to heredity.     The question' of
heredity no doubt plays an important part, but it
can hardly be separated from environment.     Future generations can never be benefitted by' improving their inborn qualities, if the environment in
which they are brought up is unhealthy.    So long
as the worker is compelled to exist on the pittance
which is doled out to him by his masters, so long
will the race be as it'is today.    Pure-air, healthy
surroundings, proper nourishment for mother and
, babe are all counted tbday in what we call money,
and this commodity in exchange for his labor he
sees mighty little of.   Certainly not sufficient with
which to purchase the ."luxuries".- referred   to,
„ Once the present system is changed the necessary
environment will follow, and as a consequence the
inborn qualities of the child likewise benefit.."As
evidence' of the important factor'environment is
we will give one or'two illustrations.    A Scottish
poor law inspector has given it'as his opinion that
provided you take the children' of dissolute parents early enough atyay from their slum surroundings, they cannot be said'to,suffer at all from their
birth environment.      He supports ■ his' views by
figures which go to show- that out of some G30
children sent by him to the country; and kept under
close observation for years, only twenty-three turned out bad7   One more..   Dr.EichoIz, one of the'
British inspectors of schools, says: - •
. L'-^YhileTthere- are_-U-_tf or tn nn.t.p.1 v__vpr_y—_.}. ymA a nt.
signs of physical defect traceable to neglect, poverty, and ignorance, it is not possible to obtain sat-
> isfactory or' conclusive evidence of hereditary physical deterioration—that is to say, deterioration of
a gradual retrogressive,, permanent nature, affecting one generation more acutely than thc previous.
There is little, if anything, to justify the conclusion that neglect, poverty" and parental ignorance
. serious as their results are, possess any marked
hereditary effect, or that heredity plays any signi-;
ficant part in establishing tlie physical degeneration   of , the poorer population. . . . y There is
.every reason to anticipate rapid amelioration   o|
physique as soon.as improvement.occurs in external conditions, particularly as regards foods," clothing, overcrowding,, cleanliness, drunkenness and
the spread of common practical knowledge of home
management.    In fact all evidence points to active
rapid improvement, bodily and mental, in the worst
districts as soon ns they are exposed to better circumstances, oven tho weaker children recovering
at a later age from the evil effects of infant life."

are* in progress between different sections of >the
master class"and the only part the workers play ir
the struggle" is-that'of acting as pawns on the.chess
board of commercialism. - Still/this, the most recent development of affairs concerning the Panama Canal forcibly, illustrates the .tissue paper consistency of capitalism's ethical code. ■ Loud mouth-
ings about morality'often have acuttle fish.flavor.
AYhen business interests are jeopardized; morality
(sic) is incontinently thrown overboard with but
little commentaries from the "respectables." The
acquisition by the British,of Hongkong is in" principle (or lack of it) duplicated by the action of
the U. S. in the creation of the Republic of Panama.
The Daily Press about whose freedom of expression
so much is shouted from the house-tops had but
little to report'when the acts of spoliation were
being played. About 9 years ago it was decided
by the Big Guns of High Finance .that the Panama
Canal project should be consummated, there was,
however ,the Republic of Colombia to be dealt with
and, as some of their political chiefs might not be
satisfied with a legitimate (.) profit for certain
concessions, rather than be held up bjr such crooked
gentry the captains of industry, who are nothing if
not resourceful, engineered'a revolution that,could
have ;beenaeasily coped with by the Columbian
authorities had it not been that "the gallant boys
in blue" aboard the U. S. cruiser Dixie, with breasts
swellingin patriotic devotion to the financial filibusters, perehancing to arrive on the scene at the
psychological moment (three cheers for7'psychological,?, as he always happens around at the right
juncture). -A few* days later another star was
added to the firmament of republics, those glorious
institutions that are rapidly displacing, "effete
monarchies" (plagiarism stolen from the speech of
a 4th-of July oration) and with that fraternal spirit
so dominant in the land of U. $'.',-Panama was' officially1 recognized and the first chapter of a very
interesting serial story, "Blackmailing Busted,,or
the'Record Republic,?' reached the : (Colon) point
of development.-The Panama "patriots" were hand
ed a liberal dole of a million dollars in real money
and the De Lesseps crowd paid their forty million
dolars.' These transaction's of course were quite legi-
timate-y.e.; they met with the approval of those>
who controlled the legislative, body. .  There were

not' carry much weight.     Disclosures were made
of munitions, of"war being manifested as articles
bf husbandry,. afforded some (though not much)
copy for a few of the muckraking clan. . Roosevelt
although it is claimed for him that he followed a
Spaniard up San Juan Hill and boldly shot the unfortunate iri.the back, did not follow the maxim of
the Castilian, "Never write a letter, and never burn
oiie," judging from the correspondence that he had
with tho editor    of the "Review of Reviews,'"
plainly indicating therein that he was'conversant
with the inner workings of tin. Panama affair, because nearly a month before this petty Republic
came into.being he wrote: "I should.be delighted if
Panama were "an independent" state, or if it made
itself so at this moment lint for mc to say so publicly would ^amount to an. instigation   of a revolt
and therefor I cannot say it." •; This is one of the
many samples of "square dealing" charateristic of
the most colossal and verbose four-flusher that has
danced on the political stage in thc history of the
world and yet, thero are hundreds wiih "boilerplate" or "patent insido" opinions who raucuously
prate nbout the greatness of the Big Noise from
Oyster Bay. Crushingly brutal, positively unscrupulous, an animated monument of tergiversation
he typifies the braHsiness of the ago and one is lead
to wondor, which mont to marvel at, the magnificent
effrontery of tho individual or the gullibility of the
mass as'thoy so persistently root for Roosevelt
Tho action of this ox-Colonol has nil tho dictators

Theodore Roosevelt in his Point of
Pines banquet speech, Saturday,
which appears to have been reported
only in the Boston "American," said:
"I shall tell you something 1 have
never told before—what I actually intended to do'during thevgreat anthracite strike of 10 years ago!
"I arranged with the Governor of
Pennsylvania that he • should call on
the aid of United States troops to suppress rioting—so far the operators
were wlth'me, but my instructions to
General Schofield.in case United-States troops entered the region were that
he should seize the mines and act as
a' receiver for them, with or without
the consent of _ the operators. He
would' have reopened the mines arid
operated them under. United States
martial law. ■•        :■;   °
"It was not; necessary to do thlB
because the operators got wind of the
scheme, and came 4o terms. It. was
a'time/for firm measures. -
"I had secured the consent of ex-
President Cleveland with" others to
serve on a,,commission in case we had
operated the mines against the wishes
of the mine owners,"- added Roosevelt.
■ "I don't like extreme action, but J
never hesitate to take any action'that
is necessary."     y« ■   ' '
The acknowledgment tliat Roosevelt
had intended to. actually seize the coal
mines brought, out tremendous cheering from the banqueters. ,

NEW "YORK, Sept 4.—James; Keir
Hardie, leader of the independent party
of Great Britain and one of its representatives in the house or commons,
who arrived iii this city .recently from
Montreal, .was interviewed at the home
of .Morris Hillquit, where he is stopping temporarily.
. The veteran labor leacer and pioneer
of working class representation in the
English parliament, will remain on this
continent about six weeks, during
which time" he will deliver a. series of
addresses in the United " States and
Canada. The greater part of Hardie's'
time will be spent in this . country,
where a great many of his speeches
will bo made under, the auspices of the
national office of ._.£ Socialist party
of the United States.        •■   >
Another .factor that has brought the
sturdy old labor champion" tb- these
shores is the marriage of his son,
James Keir Hardie, jr., to' Marion
Dalrymple Stoddart,, which took place
in Brooklyn the other day.
Hardle seemed in excellent health
and' highly enthusiastic over the prospects of the general Socialist movement. He was particularly sanguine
over Socialistv party prospects in this
and.his own country and smiled de-
precatingly wheu it was suggested to
him that many were of the opinion that
such moves as the insurance act of
England arid- the birth of the' upstart
"Progressive" party in America' would
hurt the progress of the revolutionary
political .parties of these respective
countries.       ■ ■
"Nothing can stay .the persistent onward , sweep ' of the Socialist movement,",, confidently asserted the labor
ite, "and whatever arises seemingly
to check its growth only;purifies its
ranks and makes it even more formidable. >.
.That-there is no such .thing in England as syndicalism and that Tom
Mann, reputed to be'1 the syndicalist
leader of that country, may be a parliamentary candidate in the next English elections, were, statements made
by .Hardie.       ; ' 7-
He declared that,recent general labor uprising-had been mistakenly described as syndicalism and that in this
erroneous judgment certain essential
facts have been overlooked.    •   -
"What are the general' conditions
of English working class?" Hardie
was as Red.   ' • •

PELLAT AVE.    '.'    -     -     FERNIE,
■; The Government of "Sir Richard.Mc-
Bride "will, at the-next session of'the
legislature, he afforded an opportunity
to prove to the-laboring. men", of the
province that Codlin's their.friend,'not
Short. , The opportunity.Is.to be afforded, by the presentation of a^petitiou
asking for amendments, tovthe, Elec-'
tion Act of the province arid with par-,
fibular reference to the matter of registration of voters: The petition-originated in: the.;East Kootenay.district,
and its sets forth in five specific and
easily understood clauses what amendments to the Election Act are desired,
, The petition is a -step.in the right
direction;, and .we aro of the' opinion
that' a large .percentage of'the qualified electorate, am'ongthem being many
whom the Fernie Ledger designates
as "those who would-'consider'it infra
dig tq be classified as workers," would
gladly sign, such a presentation. There
is really no need for'class distinctions
mong wage'earners, and it. is the class
known as wage'earners which constitutes by far the larger number of tins
electorate.    The Times nas consistently maintained that the righting of social and economic wrongs has come
about not so much as a result of paternal interest and sympathy on the part
of governments and corporations as a
result of the insistent demands of the
wronged,ones themselves. In the matter of the franchise the wage earner
in   British, Columbia   Is   grevlously
wronged, and the' petition is well designed to ameliorate some of the inimical conditions under ^which he exercises his citizenship.     As the law
now, stands six /months' residence in
the province is.necessary before a citizen can make application for registration, and such application   must'  be
made sixty days before the' sitting' of
the Courts of revision, ..which are'held
early - in May and November of each
year.'   Thus. a  citizen from   even   a
neighboring province'can be as much
as thirteen months in British Columbia-
before he can get-his'name on the voters' list.     The main sufferers are, of
course, the working class.
The-petitlon indicates many othor
defects in the.. Election Act, .which
should be remedially amended, arid the.
suggestions offered are admirably calculated to enfranchise and benefit a
large number of voters in other than
manual employments who are equally
handicapped by- the present regulations. We hope to see, the petition very
largely signed, and also that it receives fair treatment when'(.presented to
the government,'though we confess we'
are not fanaticallyoptimistic about the
latter hope.—Western Clarion.'

Who is your Printer?
T^O YOU recognize good printing? That is,.
do you realize the value of good printing
in the transaction of your everyday business?
There is a stereotyped .phrase about printed
matter being your silent salesman,
slovenly appearing traveling man
attention than the well dressed one, a
piece of printing carries greater weight with the
reader than the same matter when poorly done.
A number of things combine to make printing effective—good papor, up-to-date type faces,
forceful typography, good inks and timo and.
care taken through each operation. Timo is
the biggest item in tho production of printing;
good printing costs moro than thc othor kind.
"Bnt as a well-dressed window or a forceful ad-
vcrtismoiit creates more sales so will good
printing pay for itself in increased business.

SOFIA, ' Russia:-r-Alexander Bach^
metieff, Russian professor of biology
in this "city, declares he has discovered
a method of. restoring refrigerated
animals to life, "He has; produced a
condition' which ".he. calls anabiosis—
death but riot irretrievable death.
When this sensational discovery develops lt may be possible, he thinks,
artificially to freeze animals "to
death"-- for purposes',of preservation,
yet to restore them to life at will.
Prof Bachmetleff's .discovery is vouched for by Dr. A, Kahna; who has lately returned to Moscow from Sofia.
Bachmetleff has himself been transferred to Moscow University; and will
shortly give a full account of his discovery. , , <-•
The fnrthest Bavchmetleff has so
far got is to freeze healthy bats, keep
thorn for a time with their blood' turned to Ico and then revive them. The
bat Is a mammal and physiologically
allied to the higher animals. For that
reason Bachmetielf hopes Jo succeed

.. Now- that Bible students have, Ie;d
the way, and invited the press and the
pulpit to record their.belief or unbelief
in Hell Fire the way may.be opened
for a- declaration on other matters
which', are driving thousands out of
the. church and into sceptism. One
of the chief drawbacks to the progress
of the church' is the Jack'of candor in
discussing such"subjects as Hell Fire,
infant damnation, Sabbath observance,
and others.. Nobody.believes in Hell
Fire. I doubt even if those fierce old
Presbyterian, preachers, ■ who terrified
my boyish dreamy by their graphic
descriptions' of the lake of fire and
brimstone themselves believed in actual Hell Fire, though their descriptions of it were so realistic you could
almost think they hadiieen there and
had had a swim In its boiling contents.

they have been used   as   'organized
•As against that statement we quoted from the Correspondence and Report, November,, 1910, on the Colliery,
Strike Disturbances, in South - Wales,
statements made by government officials which entirely bear out our con-
, tention. As to the first point, it is
quite clear that the police were sent
1 to South Wales at the request of the
mine owners^that but for this request
tliey would not have been sent at. all,
that they were not needed, as a general rule, for the maintenance of law
and order, and that, on the contrary,
the mine owners regarded them as
their own agents to protect their property and to assist them in intimidating and defeating the strikers.
■ In his memorandum ^ on\ the whole
subject, in the official.report in question, General Macready—who certainly can be accused of no" undue leniency, toward the,strikers, although he
- appears, in the main, to have carried
out his duties with commendable fairness—says: ''It appeared to me on arriving in this district that a*false im-
;  pression as to the use of both "police
\and'military existed'in the minds of
the managers.     There seemed a general idea that managers were at liberty to carry out any ^schemes they
,. , pleased,  such as the importation of
,   'blacklegs,'   or   fresh   work on pits, in
short, any measure,'without considera-
.   t»6n as to how, it might'"influence tlie
strikers, and that the military would
'•   then be called upon to support' such
action.'       '■'        -      . "-'-'
'• " Although- General', "Macready1, and
other officials, including Mr..Churchill himself, made frequent representa-
- tions-to'mine owners and managers
but be admitted'that" the use-of the
police was frequently such .as tb en-
: -courage rather than dispel such a notion.        ,'    -    .
Mus4"Keep Pits In Order.   '»
It is necessary   to   understand that
the immediate success of the strike
'   depended upon putting .the pits completely out of action. It did not matter In5 the least to "the owners If no
y.¥ y y ¥ iw******* ¥¥¥¥¥¥¥¥ ¥¥»¥»»¥ ¥•*,*
terms from fear of loss.*' To'guarantee
them .against that- loss is to defeat the
strike. It isr no'question of the' strikers
being permitted,to "saboter,"- to "rat-
teta,"'or',.o destroy.property with impunity; but ""that..by, merely stopping
all, work'they can inflict such'injury
upon the: employer-, that he would
rather'yield than suffer the injury.' 7
• There, is nothing unfair or wronjg or
even-illegal, in. this; as matters stajid,
so long as there is no active attackson
property., The striker risks his.-livelihood The fiaitof, the'employer is that
the workman must work on his terms
or starve. *" The striker says" that the
employer must".' concede- better terms;
or he will suffer serious loss by, the
it is no part of the duty of the State
is prepared to guarantee' the workman a "living wage" when on- strike
it is no part o fthe duty of.the State
to interfere.'.? preserve" the property
of the employer from falling into ruin
through disuse. Tp use the police for
such a purpose is to uso them as "organized strikebreakers.'   -       -    «
Now,' in General Macready's .report
for Monday; November 21, we find the
following: "Major Freeth and .Lieutenant -Anderson visited the Britannic
Colliery and rendered reports as to. its
condition. It is evident that this mine
is being drowned out, and it is important that-it should be started. It is'
very hard to.defend, and the.men in'
the vicinity are a very-rough lot; fifty
police and fifty infantry at least would
be required for'its protection^ and the
place would have to' be . constantly
watched. I informed Mr. _ Llewellyn
and the chief "constable that I was prepared to offer assistance in reopening
the colliery, .if, the chief constable
could find the necessary police."
What is that but using' the police
as organized strikebreakers? It appears that the colliery in question was
reopened; and that it was the action
of.the police in this and similar instances which led to the disturbances
at Tonypandy.
' Apart from" that," the regular "escorting" of blacklegs appears to-haye
been regarded as ordinary police duty
General Macready reports a discussion
with representatives of the .men ^ on
this subject, in which the men claimed
that the "police "did not act'lnt accord-
ance with ithe law, and did7not",nlldw
the.pickets to interview\men-passing
to arid,, from their work." 7l ■¥-""''• '';>
As to"
idea'of the'.owners
'. ■ _-<.'-»'.
their agents, entirely ".at-"their beck
and call, the report affords ample evidence of this. The affair of the Cynon
Colliery' presents,. perhaps/ the - most
striking instance. This is reported .on
both by ' General Macready and Mr.
Moylan, an official specially representing the Hbme Office In the .district:'*
General Macready's report is as foi
lows: ."Colonel Edwards, Mr .Moylan
and Major Burnett visited Tondu, Port
Talbot and Cynon Colliery. On their
return they reported that there was
coal was raised for a few days, weeks,
or even months.   What did matter to
them,.however, was that the pits and
• machinery should  be kept   ln   good no necessity, for the thirty police nt
working order.   That entailed the em-j Tondu, who .were  asked-for  by the
ployraent of a certain number of men manager becauso ,ho:was afraid that

..employers would be forced to come to they vlsitd Port Talbot, whero   they
" terms.   Now, tlie object of a etrilte ls' ascertained that the urgent' demand
tp forco tho employers to como, to| for police and military to bo sent'to
Cynon Colllery^was in order tcTenforce
the "levying'of a fine „wnich7h'ad .been
awarded against J.he'Jmen- byyt. ."ch. 11
court. ■- The miners% had 'offered, to^pay
voluntarily 80 per.'cent.'of thej amount;
and' this 'had ..been 'recommended'';by
the manager-'Tbut refused by^he^own;
ers/- " The men .were paid' immediately
after the arrival of "the police and the
full amount- deducted.'' ,.No- word -of
.this was sent to tlie chief constable'by
his local' inspector at Port Talbot.V?^-
7 From Mr.-Moylan's report'.'of7the
affair we learn that the; award'.given
against the men,'for which the deduction was1 made, was -on -account "of
"their • having ■ struck,,, about, a" month
earlier, without. giving• due -notice.
They had afterwards returned to.work
and the award of 19 shillings against
each man war to be deducted from
<lie-fir.it week's wages The men objected, and,' as stated, offered .8,0 por
cent. - ThlB was refugee! and with the
aid "of. the. police- tbe .full deduction
was^made, and a further strike resulted. -. .Concluding his report of. the" affair Mr. Moylan'says: ."It will be seen'
from this. short account - of the' facts
that these police were sent for solely
in order to enable the. deduction from
wages to be made, and. that, the effect
of their arrival "lias been to send the
men out on strike! If there.had been
noiarge force, of police, here to/draw
on,' the manager admitted' that the'de-;
duction would not.have been,made,
and.-there would,have been no strike.
,' "The presence of such a large^ force
bf police and "military here .had undoubtedly- given colliery managers the
impression, that they can obtain ,uri-
limit supplies. of 7 them' on any pretext" ' ",!<•'.• .'••-''
" From this. It'is quite clear that the
police" were used, not only, as strikebreakers; butas-strlkemakers and bum
bailiffs.*. _ '  Xsy  '   -" '    ■,
.-•The,-strange, notion of the owners
and\managers' that' the, police were
simply "their."tools .and.agents, finds
further evidence in a remarkable letter
addressed tb ttie-Home Office on behalf, of theJ_t6mmouthshire and South
Wales Coal Operators' Association, the
concluding passage of which is as follows:    '\ ;.   -.  ,
"Colonel Edwards (in command of a
division' of the Metropolitan police told
me that' he was not1 going to allow his
men, to], be" kept in"the district indefinitely,' and'that it was quite open to
him"to> withdraw-them at any.moment.
were now 'sworn constables of Glamorganshire, and that I had made a
speda|-.requisition for their' services
cnd:that they were employes of mine
ns long as I wished.'
"' This completely bears out our charge
that the police were, used as 'organized strikebreakers," and that they were
so .used,"in response to pressure from
capitalist supporters of the government.,'     -    *
There is more evidence to the samo
effect In the report In question. That,
of course/only, deals with the use "of
tho police In South Wales last November, but we have little doubt that^hc
official reports of the recent troubles

whole design,
Then again, a great deal of, interest
attaches to tho proposals affecting

share of New South Wales Industrial
trouble... U (a unquestionably a uery
thorny anbject. as the vital Question
ot the *jf(kUncy ot tUe workmen is
sought to be Ignored. The unwillingness of the employers, and ef a rery
large section of tbe public, to accept
