'.VANCOUVER, Jan. 25.—Fbr weeks;
during the severe weather there has
been a marked shortage of coalsbere.
The primary cause is the strike in
the Canadian 'collieries on Vancouver
Island, where work has' practically
been. tied"' up" for montns.':',.r"'Sbft'. coal
has been refailing»in Vancouver from
seven dollars to eight dollars' and a
half a ton."" *    . -'     ' • ,'' \
For I many, years the government of
British • Columbla'„has been'expected
to appoint a commission to look into
tho question of price for supplies, for
colliery put on scow at the mines and
to be sent directly,to a point in Vancouver.; Recently members of the legislature -from Vancouver put the
question up very forcibly to Premier
McBride, and'it is asserted unofficially today that a commission will be
appointed next; week to go into the
whole question.      '     .

COAL  MINER  WON  $225,000 PRIZE
LONDON, Jan. 29.—Albert -T. Bill-

in a Hungarian $225,000 lottery.   '
THIRTEEN LABOR
DISPUTES IN DECEMBER
About 3,500 Employees Affected torn-
.';    pared With 3,900 in 1911".,   :*
fir lunate friends. This shortage of
c.oal at a time like this is a "serious
proposition.", •  * •
Inquiries at the offices: of the Gait
Collieries this morning confirmed the
report, but" the officials laid the blame
at the door of the coal dealers of Raymond. The dealers ,do not keep a
large enough supply on hand, and, as
the Gait. Collieries have as many orders as they can pbsslblyi'handle, the
dealers who do not have tbeir orders
booked in advance find themselves
without coal, while waiting their turn
to'get' their orders filled,
Tliere are about 750 men- employed
at the mines of the Gait Collieries.
The mines are working only one shift
—but this is owing' to the fact that
enough miners cannot be obtained to
put on a double shift,
- However, more coal is being raised
than'ever in the history bf the mines.
More coal is going out of this division
of the C.P.- R. than ever before. , But
the. country is rapidly filling, up with
settlers, with the result that the market ls-grbwing wider and the demand
increasingly greater. The absence of
American cbal, owing to strikes "in
the coal fields -ih the United States,
has alBo increased the demands on
the coal-fields of this section of the
country,* and the J 912-13 season will
be se't down as the most prosperous
year, in the history of the coal mines
of the Southern Alberta field.—Lethbridge Herald..

Solo Ag<mt for Fsrn to
- Direct action aad anarchism have
much in conurion. 'Both lay1 emphasis
uri a series of opposition's. Both' are
anti-parliamentary, • anti-patriotic, "anti-
militarist, anti-votes, anti-dues, anti-
insurance,'anti-contracts. Both believe
in a vague federalism of' ill-defined
and hastily-groped workers! The revolutionary unionists declare, for the
general strike, which is a form of the
Insurrections urged by the anarchists.
The sabotages of the revolutionists
bears a-striking resemblance to the
anarchists'- propaganda of the deed,
evon when it. leads to assassination.
Leadership is abhorred hy both, .but'
an inner circle of daring revolutionists
is advocated by both. "Wo must
form," said Bakunine, "not Indeed the
army of revolution—the army can nev-'
er be anything but the people—but yet
a sont of staff for tlie revolutionary,
army    No very great,number of
such men is requisite. A hundred revolutionists, firmly and- seriously
bound together, are enough for tlie international organization of, all Eu-'
rope." ' "'  ■
This idea of an inner clique to lead
the ignorant and inert mass 'plays-a
groat part in both the anarchist and
i syndicalist v movements. Bakunine
formed a secret society jn the midst'
'of the International Worklngmen's
Association, and after that organization was abandoned in 1871 the "anarchists continued to advocate the
same tactics in subsequent conferences. Today we find Pouget, the
leader of the French syndicalists, insisting that the enlightened minority
in the French labor unions should be
tho unrestrained, guardians of the organization. ' He says: "The conscious
minority will ,act without taking vac-,
count of the. obstinate mass or, of
the unconscious' who. have not yet
bee?) animated _by the'spirit of revolt and may be considered as human
zeros." And Bouget concludes: "Thus
appears the enormous difference in
method" which distinguishes syndicalism from democracy, ,t__e latter,' by
the mechanism of universal suffrage,
gives direction' to ■. the ' unconscious
.". . and stifles the'minorities who
bear within them the hopes of the future: The~syndiCaIisJniietliodTgives-a"
result' diametrically opposed to this:
Impulsion is' instilled into the conscious, the rebels, and all favorable inclined are 'called upon, to act and to
participate in the movement." , The
position hero jtaken by Pouget*Is in-
corporated into the'very constitution
of'the French Federation• of Labor,
which makes it poesinie for a closely
organized minority to completely control the organization. The trade union
with a score of members has the same
voting power in the federation as the
trado union with 10,000; members Opposition to majority 'rule has alway^
been as much a cardinal prlnclplo of
tho anarchists as lt is of Tammany
Hall, and It today stands as tho policy
nnd practlco of the French unions!'
Tho anarchists In tho International
fought, as tho revolutionary unloulsts
do .today, for what is called purely
6epr.omlo action. They had no faith
in political parties, In parliamentary
methods, or ln fact, ln any effort to
enpturo 'public powers. For Instance,
tho anarchist, Bordat, said before the
Lyons tribunal ln 18113, what most of
tho revolutionary unionists today)
would thoroughly ussont to: "To sond
worklngmon to parliament," ho do-
clared, "la to aot like a mother who
would tnko hor dnughtor to a brothel."
"working class candidates," said
Unkunlno, "transferred to hourReols
conditions of llfo and Into an ntmofr
lilioro of completely bourgcolfio political Idons, censing to bo nctiinlly
workors In ordor to becomo statesmen,
will boco.jio bourKools, und pusulbly

tho bourgeois, themFolvou. For It Ib
not'tho mon who mnko positions^ but,
on tho contrary, positions which make
Uiu men," Such havo been thc crltl-
rlgms of tlio nnnrc.il_.tf. levied against
working class political nctloti. Any

revolutionary unionism will (Ind again

Kakunine and •Kropotkiti: - "The revolution, as to 'understand it,"-- said'
Kakunine, "must on its very first day
completely and'fundamentally destroy
the State and,all State institutions."
The workers must then' proceed t6 the
'confiscation' of alb productive capital
and instruments of labor in favor of
the associations of laborers, which will
use them for collective production."
"Tlie,first act of the social revolution,", says KropotKin,,"wlll be a work
of destruction. ....   The government
will .be' overthrown  first"- And following that ."the people wdll also, without waiting for, any directions from
above, abolish private property by1 forcible   expropriation. . . .   'The. reorganization of: production -will not be'
possible, in a few days,' especially as
the revolution   will   presumably   not
break out in all Europe at a- time. The
people, will,'consequently, have to„ take
temporary measures  to  assure themselves, first..of all, of food; clothing,
and shelter. First, the populace of the
ihsutgemt cities will-take possession of
the .dealers' stock of food and of the
grain 'warehouses and the. slaughterhouses.; Volunteers make an inventory
of the provisions.found and distribute
printed tabular'statements by the millions.   Henceforth, fr^e taking of all
that is present in abundance; rations
of what has to be measured out, with
preference'.to the sick and the \veakj_
a supply for deficiencies by importation' from   the country'(which   •will,
eome in plenty if we' produce things
that the farmer needs and put;them
at1 his disposal), and also'by* the inhabitants of the city entering^pon; the
cultivation of  the   royal  parks  and
'meadows "in the vicinity. , The .people
will thke possession of the dwelling-
hodses iri' like' manner.   Again, volunteers make,lists of'the available dwellings and distribute them. People come
together by streets; quarters, districts,,
and agree"about,the allotment of the
dwellings'. that were on han'd will'be
first have to be borne are soon to be
done a.way; the artisans of the build-,
ing trades need only woTlc a few hours
aa day   and soon   the,, overspacious
dwellings' that were on hand will he
sensibly faltered arid model houses/entirely new, will, be built.   The'.same
procedure will 'be followed with-'re-,
gard to clothing.''   The people1 take
.possession Jn|=,the„greayclothi'ersl7e91_
tablishments and volunteers list. the
stocks.   People take freely what, is on
hand In abundance, in rations what is
limited Jn-quantity.   What''is lacking
is,supplied in'the shortest of time by
the'factories :wlth their perfected machines." i *. ;"''    ■,'   '
I quote the above statements of the
two chief anarchists to,illustrate the
similarity between their view and
those advocated- by/'tho syndicalists.
The latter are extremely' vague regarding the actuar procedure of, the
general strike, Some of them believe
that the general strike may be solely
a peaceabje abstention-' from work.
Most of ,th0m have, however, been
forced in discussion to agree that a
peaceable general strike'would surely
meet wth'defeat, Ab' BuIsboti says:
"If .tho general nBtrlke remains tho
revolution of folded -arms, If It does
not degenerate Into violent insurrection, ono cannot see how'a strike of
fifteen, thirty, br even Bixty clays could
bring Into tho Industrial form df government und into the' present- social
Byatorn changes groat enough to determine tholr fall," ■ To bo suro, tho
revolutionary unionists do not lay so
much emp.ii.Hls on tho abolition of
government as do tho anarchists, but
tholr plan loads to nothing less than
that. If the capitalist class Is to be
locked out—whatovor that may moan
—ono must conclude that the workors Intend lu somo mannor without
tho uso ot publlo poworo to galii con-
trol of tho tools of production, In any
paRo, tln.y will bo forced, In order to
achieve any possible success, to tako
the factories, tho mlnos, and tho mills,
aud to put tho work of .production
Into tho hands of tho masses. If tho
stato Intorferos, as u undoubtedly
will, In tho most vigorous mannor, Uio
strikers .will be forced to fight tho
stato. In othor words, w.i shall boo tho

.matter of reports and printed 'statutes
and regulations which 'should," have
Iteeh sent to them hot from theiiress'-

• Alleged Prosperity'
In his pleasant, discursive, yet
barbed manner the opposition leader
took up each clause of the Leiutenant-
Governor's speech"1 to treat of it. .His
Honor, had referred to the "unusual
prosperity" of/the province. _ What,
then, was the province in the opinion
of the. government, In his opinion the
only people who counted were the
wage-earners, and the farmers, ,and
prosperity had not accrued ,to them.
"Wet weather had spoiled many of the
crops; wages had. not progressed one
iota/in the last-twelve.months.
He regretted to see that the government was again' going to '/manhandle"
the Canada' Northern scheme. Every
occasion on .which it had had dealings
with this' corporation, the government
had been bested. What was coming to
it? Something in the shape of extended , privileges^ he supposed. . Already
the 'people of British Columbia were
beginning ^o reap the crop of disadvantages/ through ' their association
with.capitalists.- .The sooner they cut
adrift'from^ the Canada Northern,
Norton Griffiths* bunchy the better
would U be for the people' of this'province.        .    ■ '' '     .'
PAGE THREE
"The, government should go slowly-
in the way of granting privileges towards -that corporation," he rebuked
.solemnly.,    "''•.•■
'He was'-gfad; to see that the work
done by the ex-n^ember for "Alberni,
Mr. Brewster, was at last doing good.
After"three years "the attorney-general
had at least seen'the sense o' what Mr
Brewster had advocated; .atter many
days.lt' had" dawned upon his intelligence that there-was something in it;
consequently there ,was to be a"meas-

Lambasting the UjborCommisaion
• Seldom has a body of men received
such-a verbal lambasting as was administered by Parker Williams to the

commission should be. In effect 'the
commission had only been a plum offered "by the premier to the wag^
earners to keep them quiet for a while.
The premier, had run ftie changes on
hazy generalities year after-year until
they had become moth-eaten. ~ In ,tl_e
end he had given the workers a labor
commission. . c . ■ ■ >
'.^nd, yet the. great representative
iofly of labor men in this province,
the British Columbia'Federation, had
been entirely ignored. The Federation hadbeen led.to believe that'they
would have men of their choice on
that commission. On-inquiry the premier had looked wise and beneficient
and accommodating until they were
led to believe that.at last a desire of
theirs was to be granted1   ,
hy the labor commission had not
been appointed early in the summer
was a mystery- to him. His'under--
standing was' that a commission of
three, James Hawthornthwaite, John
Jardine and H. G. .Persons had been
selected.
So soon as an announcement somewhat, to this efefct appeared in the
newspapers, a delegation of miners
had visited the.Capital to ascertain
when1 the commission would take the
road, in order-to make representations to it, and tiiey h$d been informed that the commission had not yet
been appointed, or rather that the commission'had not yet'been signed. Five
or six weeks later a1 commission very
different Ln*its.makeup had been officially announced.
Declined to Act
His'own. theory, supported by a few
fact's in his possession, was that when
th^> Canadian-.Northern-Norton ..'Griffiths combination found out that-the
labor commission was likely to be one
that would cause it trouble, it had
brought pressure to bear upon. the
government, and one member of the'
commission, ' Mr. Hawthornthwaite",.
when he discovered that the commission -was to be made a sort of football
by the1 Canadian-Northern, declined to
act. upon1 it.:, He did not speak with
Mr. Hawthornthwaite's authority ,on
this point, but believed his information
to be correct. .  ' ,
"It is, in no sense a commissio'n a.
all," pursued Mr. '-Williams. The
municipal, agricultural" and even the.
taxation commission^ are ', and were
composed of men who' have devoted
time and' study..to the conditions jthey

ed of men who understand
Have No Sympathy
"This so-called labor commission ia
no such thing. Four of the five men'
who sit on it have iio real sympathy
at all with'the needs of the wage:earn-
ers, the workingmen'of this province.''
He took each of "the component parts
in turn and drastically criticised the
choice. Mr, Stoney was the only skilled worker on the board. John Jar-
dine had sat for six years in the House
and the journals for those Bix years
would bo found to contain nothing at^
,tached to his name that would Indicate
any knowledge or synSpathy whatever
with the roal'needs of.the workmen.'
Ho could not in any sense' accept Mr.
Jardine as a representative of labor.
Mr. Parsons, the chairman, was sup-
posed to be the impartial item-in,tho
Hat; ho was tho ono who ought
to ho socurely aloof from ' any tinge
ot partiality whatsoever, and yot dur
ing six years he hn'd consistently voted
against everything in th© Bhape of lahor legislation that had been present
od ln tho House—against bettor sanlta*
tion, against shorter Injurs—In fact
against everything affecting labor
along those linos.        , ' -
"If you tako up Rule 104, Mr. Speak-
or," wont on tho opposition lender,
"you will notico that a man who has

Parker Williams went on to Inform
the mombor for Yolo ns to tho real reason he did not Ret the chairmanship
of the agricultural commission,
"I siiMost," ho said, "that If thn
member for Yale wants a job Ilk* that
ho rmmt br* wllh the prnmlor moro—h«
must travel with hltn. What could
he be doing to allow the Member for
Cowlchan to make that trip to Prlnoe
Rupert aiid -pour his little tale into the
premier's ear?- Why, he had three
weeks all to himself.", (Laughter.)
' "This government," he went on, still
applying > the lash, "has liev^r. been
able to break away from.-Tammany
Hall methods'. The merits,of the old
British way have never broken In.on
the intelligence of the honorable premier. .'.The members of commissions
are ol. good Conservatives — every
mother's son of them! I would like to
ask—are there not thousands of people
in ihis province who vote Liberal and
Socialist? ' Have these peopieonly got
tho right to pay the taxes and admire
the circus as it goes past.'\ -
The Navy Question
.The member for Newcastle went on
to show how the government had soft-
pedalled on the navy business, in demanding a; fleet unit along the Pacific
coast.       " y
- "Why is it," he asked, "that the premier's eye's are eternally glued to the
western horizon watching for the ships
of Japan that are coming to destroy
this province' of British Columbia to
make it a colony of Japan—of Japan,
supposed to be an ally and friend to
England?"
The speaker paid a glowingly eloquent tribute to the astuteness, skill,
daring and foreslghtedness of British
statesmanship "through the course of
centuries; showing-" how /Gibraltar,
Malta,' Cyprus, Aden, Hongkong—all
strong strategic points—had been collared by the British in a manner that
could not but elicit admiration.
'Considering this," said Mr. Williams, and he indicted the Premier
with index ..finger. "Consideringj.thls,
a man must have a high conceit, a
great ^conception ot himself, when he
comes to criticize British statesman-,
ship. Yet here Jn'British Columbia we
have an /intellectual giant' of such'
magnitude that'he pits his small wit
against the wisdom t"hat has controlled
the greatest' Empire the world has
ever seen.   " ', '
• "And he does', it," said the member
for" Newoastle, "with all the -lusty-
lungedness and thoughtlessness of a
schoolboy." - (Laughter.)
i 'In the British' Empire a man may
say" what lie likes—that is except, in
Vancouver City—(renewed laughter)—
but just whyhe=4(the Premier) presumed to challenge the wisdom of the
British ^Government would be hard.,to
say. .'I'hav^ no;hesitation in saying
that if the speaker had been juiy other
than the Premier, the chances are very
large 'that he ■ would have been put
under restraint,In one way or another.
Enforcement of Law.
The leader of.the opposition then
liad a tilt at the Attorney-General with

qillctty WW* cnn»lii,

nrrtw eatd., ind httli
it      rt      as .frit*
"regard-to""the n6n-_mpnsonmenr~oT
certain women who had been found
guilty of misdemeanors, and had been
sentenced to incarceration for various
terms. He objected to the laws of the
province not being enforced; under
those conditions, they became a farce.
."I iiav.e no objection to-the Attorney-,
General looking after his friends,"
was his coioment, "but the right placo
to do.it is before tho police put their
hands on them, and not between the
court-house and the jail door." *
Ineffectually
Scornfully reviewing the, worlcof tho
Conservative party, in British Columbia, he asked;
"What has this government done In'
ten years? Nothing that will live for
more than two years after thoy havo
gono out of, power, except it be that
"Insanity" at Point Groy, which" is to'
be called 'a ' University, nnd a few

These were not the statements of a
-Wild-eyed Socialist, as they might
think, .but' were taken from the Chilli-
wack Progress, which he thought' wa£
a Conservative paper. That paper
said something was radically "wrong".
The thing was thought so grave thaf a
Toronto paper sent a special correspondent up .to investigate conditions
under •which men were shipped! in. A
full report was published, and'in view
bf these things he wanted to* go on
record against the cry "Prosperity.".'
The C. N. R.^vas not alone, th'e'G.
T. P. was every ,bit as bad, ijy not
worse. , The speaker then quoted from
the Conservative Prince Rupert Empire, an editorial which, said that tbe
shortage of labor was not the trouble
up there. Men wore willing to tramp
500 miles through the wilderness to
escape this modern bell. It was high
time, therefore, that the cry "'Prosperity" was cut out.
'Members should face things as they
are instead of ostrich-like, burying
their heads in the sand'. He was
forced to the conclusion that these
members knew these things existed,
and dare nots come out on the floor
and state their knowledge.
, Turning to the question of the Panama Canal, he asked the question, if
there was no shortage of labor now,
what would conditions be like in two
years, when 50,000 emigrants, if the
papers told the truth, poured onto this
coast. Wages were at the bare^sub-
slstence level now. It was a vital
question. (,
, Various suggestions had been
thrown out- as to Inducing capital to
come here, but no measures were contemplated to aid men who ownedSioth-
Ing but their labor power, which was
tbeir only property and brought them
nothing for its sale,but enough to keep
them alive and enable them to reproduce their kind. If conditions are
growing worse, as they undoubtedly
were, he asked the government to consider what results would ensure with
the'influx of 50,000 more settlers.   .
Mr. Manson (Skeena) had quoted
figures to prove the prosperity 'of the
country, but he would remind him
that the Ddke of Westminster was
worth $15,000,000, yot that did -not
prove the wealth of England, for there
were millions of his class there literally starving to death, who never had
eaten a square meal in their miserable
lives'. '
- Touching briefly on the Labor Commission; he noticed that Wood (Alberni) had suggested a woman- member for Jhat body, but in his opinion
no self-respecting woman would serve
on the affair. _ Also !it was the first
time the house liad_ recognized that a
woman possessed any. brains, and he
w-ould-suggest^th^^pyo've^tTielFsIncef^
ity-by granting women the right to
vote. Heretofore "every .mother's son,
of them had voted against such a measure. .   • "

Coming to the Civil Service,' if he
had understood the premier right, he
was going to see the,members got old
age pensions. These soft snaps were
all held by Conservatives, and bo wondered the Premier didn't go further
and promise a front'seat' In Heaven
as well. Not that he had any objec-
tlon to old age pensions, but'ho hated
to see ,a privileged class get it alone.,
Ho wondered if it ever occurod to the
Premier to extend tho .pension to the
minors, for instance, who at tho risk of
sudden death, did hard and laborious,
toll'all tholr Hvos? Ho hoped some
day to see nil tho workers ln receipt
of "a pension.. This Civil Sorvlco affair wnB a cobo of "To tiio victors belong lho spoils," yet it seemod a brazen way of doing things ovon In poll-
tics.
Tho Promlor had stated that no
complalntB hnd ovor boon hoard from*
tho pooplo, yot his own district, Nanaimo, had asked' for an 8-hour ,work day
on governmont roads, nnd he hlmBolf
had sorvod on a delegation' to the
government. If any mombor In thc
houflo did not know of unjust conditions prevailing ho wns hot doing his
duty. On tho Island ranchers, who
lived on stump land, woro working on
Govornmont roads with tliolr own
toian.8 and getting. $0.00 a day, while
tho city pnld $7.00 for the samo work.
If thlH Ih tho only way ^hn prosperity

ganized labor will, in France a capitalist paper stated there* had'been
80,000 deserters; it was significant.
There was a problem for our jingoes
to .ponder over.
Coming back to provincial affairs,
the Premier had stated that the future
of this province depended on its
transportation service. If that was
so, all consideration should be given
to the workers in that industry, .as
they do the essential work, and are
fully entitled to it. Listening to McBride extolling - the engineers of the
province, one might think they were
the best in the world, yet the government had sent abroad for an engineer
to design ■ Strathcona Park, a very
back-handed way of complimenting the
civil engineers of this province. Coming to taxation, he touched 6n It
lightly, claiming that taxes came from
surplus, values and were of no real
concern to the workers.
He thought Tisdall (Vancouver) was
another man who had the prosperity
bug very-bad. Tisdall also got on'
dangerous ground when he suggested
n commission to enquire into the scarcity of coal. The machine would
have to hold him, in check. He had
also worked in the Britannia mines,
which Tisdall had thought so good a
place and would say that only last
fall trouble was rife there as to whether an organiser could visit there.
Touching on shortage of coal'once
more, Place said if more care was taken to avoid explosions, instead of
stocking up coal for fear there ahould
bo one, there would be no scarcity.
* Referring to'the recent visit of the
Duke of Connaught, he did not doubt''
that he and the member for Newcastle could find much better employment
than in kow-towing to this gentleman>
Concluding, Place said! as a Social- •
1st lie was prepared to stand on his
two feet at any time and defend- any
action of his, nor have anyone else
shoulder his responsibilities.     (Loud
applause).    .       ' '      '
Thursday, Jan. 23rd.
Mr. Williams moved the following
Resolution:
Whereas Rule No. 110 of this House
provides that.upon a division -the yeas
and- nays shall not be entered on the
Journals unless demanded by three
members;
And whereas the enforcement of the
said rule will impose a hardship on0
the Opposition in this Parliament.   7
Therefore, be it. resolved, lthat the  '
said Rule 110 of this House be amended by striking'out the word "three" '■
where it occurs in the third line, and'
substituting the word "two"' therefor.
Williams, in moving tho above re:
solutto_n,_drew__,attention^to—the--fa'ct~
that as the Opposition had been chiselled down to the number of two, a hard- „
ship would be worked on them.    Both
Alberta and Saskatchewan legislatures
permitted. two members to make this
demand, and the Dominion House in a '
legislature of 222 permitted five memT
bers to demand it.   So surely in this
house of 42 it was no unreasonable request to make.
McBride, in ' refusing.' the request,
said Jf Williams and Place really needed" any assistance to get tholr names ,
on ,the journals, the government
would loan them a man to make the
requisite' number.
Parker0Williams Indignantly refused, stating ho wanted'no help on those x
terms, ovon ,|f ho  was offerod  the'
wh<Jlo Conservative Party.
On. a division being called, a,faint
chorus of ,ayes ^supported tho resolu-'
tlon, and tho chairman declared the
motion lost.
Williams demanded a show of
hnnds, whereupon tho two opposition
members only hold up tholr hands, and ,
tho motion was doclnrod lost. It wns
vory evident that, tho fear of the ma*
ohlno hold tho sympathizers In chock,
This Is ono of tho most arbltary displays of power exhibited by tho Mc
Brldo govomment, and such nn un-
courtooim act should arouse a storm
of resentment'against this potty tyrant; drunk with political powor, Tho

THE WAYS OF OUR MASTERS
SOME little time i\go public opinion was somewhat aroused by a despatch from the old
country to the effect tliat a railroad union had gone
on strike because a locomotive engineer had beef)
reduced to an inferior position by the company for
being drunk when off duty. This news item was
given full prominence and invariably' headed,
"Strike for the Right to Get Drunk." Labor men
' and others who know what to expeet from a capi-.
talist press, knew that this was but another one of
the tricks of the trade, and awaited'further developments, and news from unbiased sources. . These
.eventually came to hand, and what do Ave find.
The man'was reduced for the reason stated, but
Knox (the engineer) denied this charge, and furthermore claimed that he was at all times fully capable of carrying put his duties. His friends 'of the
union, who know from past, experience that what
he said was true, demanded that he be re-instated,
and this being refused, promptly went out; on
strike. Thousands of men left work and matters
were beginning to get so scrjous that the government stepped in and made an investigation of the
case, The investigators found that,.the man was
not drunk and incapable, and that he'could not "in
any reasonable interpretation of the word be said
to, be anything like drunk." His rc-instatemont
of course followed.    So endeth.the first chapter,
The company was, however, not to be beaten, anc|
it was not,long before they were able to show their

' poration, were running the show,"' aud it was but
_lwo weeks before they got even by suspending "the
trouble majcer'.'-for a month on a charge of endangering the lives of his passengers by running ,past
signals which were set against him. This time
the company'has every chance, of getting away
with this apparent frame-up, The suspension, so
far. stands, jfnd it looks as if it will stand for quite
a long time.
To anyone who knows the ropes it must appear
that the company set a trap for'the engineer—tbey
were going to got'him by hook br crook. 'This mnn
for years hns driven locomotives for thc company
and never ran past signals before;'two weeks after
liis vindication by' the govornniont he commits an
unusual offence. Passing strange! From whichever angle one looks at it lib must come lo the e._..
elusion thnt it is a fake, and this time, unfortunately, it looks as if Lis fellow workers arc unable to do
.u.yl.nng.       „ .
Tliis is but another illustration of«liow lilllo power tlio law lins, or enn have,- over a mighty corpora-
lion. ■ .The government mny got a mnn his'jql) bnck

especially if lie bo a big one, the governmont is no

TITE C P.Jit."has turned down,the award of the
Conciliation Board in the dispute of the United Brotherhood of Railway Employees. - .
This action of .Canada's mammoth;corporation
ought to be t! lesson to those simple minded,individuals laboring under the delusion'that appeals to a
metaphysical justice have the slightest influence
upon an Employer unless tliere is something more
powerful at the back of the demand. If that filmy
abstraction "Justice" had any value it would most
assuredly have been, effective in the case of, the
U. B. R. E., becauso many of the employees' are
working for less than sixty dollars a month, a figure so low that it is out of tlie question for any man
with a family to provide adequately for those dependent upon him.' "We have been informed that
there are mon in the Eastern departments of tbe
C. P. It. actually working for forty dollars a-month,
in the event of the recipient of'this, princely sum
being married his wife should be eligible for a Carnegie gold medal as a practical recognition.bf her
capabilities in the domain of'Domestic Economy.
It, may appear strange,'nevertheless'it, cannot" bfe
disputed, that there are many men wording in the
departments affected who ..would resent being called slaves that decline to join their fellows in a unit-
Qd effort to get a few more crumbs, consequently it
is futile to show sympathy' for these supine specimens of humanity. , "' ' ""
Evidently the company must know that there are
many of the type alluded to or they would not have
ignored the award of the Conciliation Board, therefore it is up to those who dp-: realize that-only by
concerted action can they expect to accomplish any
beneficial results to get after the hold-backs and,
point out, to them the importance of joining the
union. Very , likely many of these poorly paid
workers think that the other brotherhoods should
help,tliem but of the difficulty, but of this'they
might as well make up their minds that tjie^o'tlier
organizations will do nothing of the kind-until-they.
see that those'most affected are, more strongly banded together than they are fit the present time? The-
sister organizations exemplify the truth.of the'old
saying "The Lord Helps those who help' thcmsel-:
ve»." We have heard some of the men" say that,
because the Company is rich tliey should'be'willing
to pay more wages... This is childish talk,,for there
N.s^ioffxirm'thatHsnn~business~for"its"heaith7^vag"es
are not. paid because of sentiment, but'as a* profit
producing proposition, and thc. sooner the U.B.R.E.
'realize this and cut but the sentimental, the quicker will they have a chance to make their demands
hearkened to.
, So ;far as the other railroad organizations arc
concerned many of those that are active 'members
today do not appreciate the difficulties that confronted those who'had to stand the brunt:of the
fight in the beginning of their unions, and will talk
quite boasl fully of thoir abilities to compel the C.
P. It. lo take notice when they make"rt demand for
different conditions or better wages. To these we
would say that they might make a study of the
early struggles of their own organization, then tliey
will bettor understand nnd appreciate what the U.
B, R. E. is up against, ■      ^ ,
Ask any wngeworker if ho would not like to improve his position, nnd probably tho reply would

. Nelson came,'to' Penile .Monday last
with an unbeaten' record;to play the
local boys'a series p.. two games". ^In
the afternoon the rink" resembled more
the' nature of a pond \than a skating
rink. However, the thermometer'be-'
gan to descend, and the hopes of the
local fads rose "wheri" they heard , the
game was to;be,played.. >
- A fair-sized, crowd liad assembled
R.-&.30 to see the game, which proved
to be'one of the best," if not the best,
ever" witnessed on -the local rink. By
the time tbe game .-was started the
ice had improved, _but was still in a
heavy condition.    ='. '     '
Referee, Jas. Miller, got them
started* and tho 'opening exchanges
were fast, both teams-playing,,excellent hockoy. ' Right early Gordon put
in an excellent shot, which the Nelson
goalie was unable to,save. The "excitement at this time wis at its height,
both teams working their utmost, and
by a splendid piece of,work by the
Fernie forwards,'McQuinn succeeded
in netting again for Fernie. The puck
was faced off once more, and .early on
Launders scored a beauty for Nelson,
bringing the first period* to "a close.
Fernie, 2 (Gordon and v McQuinn);

Immediately on the commencement
of the second period Launders scored.
Launder all through had been playing
splendid hockey. ''The Fernie players were allowing him all too much
freedom, which they should not have
done, for he -proved himself a dead
shot. '7 After Launders' goal, Gordon
.went, through' "them all and scored
again for .Fernie, Both teams "were
showing effects of the heavy ice, but
were .still, playing fast hockey. Launders, scored again for Nelson,' after
which a brief' interval was called on
account of one of the Nelson boys getting slightly hurt. It. proved to be
'but a brief rest, ho.vever, and both
te_T_i_s were soon busy again, and once

possible their intentions regarding the
matter.. "(Carried). The following .is
the committee appointed:-Col. J. Mac-,
kay, G. O'Brien and E. English.
, A short discussion arose as to what
steps would be^taken should the ambulance wagon arrive before provision
had. been made for-Its reception. It
was moved and seconded that the^pre-
sident and, se'eretary be empowered by
this meeting to take any, steps they
see fit to place the ambulance, wagon
in a convenient'place should it arrive
prior to the.time any arrangement had
been made for Its reception. (Carried.)
A-short discussion arose as to the
advisability of having some form of
commemoration on arrival of the ambulance wagon. , Sorne of the members/suggested a smoker, while others,
thought a banquet would'be the most
appropriate thing. It was moved and.
seconded that an- annual banquet be
held, and a committee be, appointed,
to organize same. (Carried.)" > ,\\ -

Farmers Turn Down

as representating the U. P. A. What
they had done they did on purely personal grounds, and they were not sent
by. the association.!, Mr. Tregillus
further stated that after he left the
Lethbridge convention ne was elected
a vice-president, and he knew nothing
about it until advised later.
Continuing, Mr. Bnglisir declared
that he had understood that a movement to consolidate would be favored
by the convention, and as justifying
that belief, stated broadly that he had
been told by the secretary that Clem
Stubbs and J. O. Jones, officers of
the United Mine Workers, would be
invited to address the convention.
An impassioned appeal for greater
co-operation between the United Farmers of Alberta and the Mine Work-,
ers of America waa made by Delegate
Wheatley, representing the mine workers, at the opening session of the U.
P. A, convention Thursday morning..'.
"We need' your co-operation,"' he
declared. •-''.'We want you to band with
us.' You can help us demand, a. wage
that is sufficient to enable us to''kee_p
up with the standard of living.'", l
Mr. Wheatley said he was one of the
miners at Bankhead who dug coal at
wealth, and. tiy,no just law, contract or
rule oT-orileVcanj'be entitled.to receive a rate of, Interest greater in. proportion than,the risk incurred in its
operations; and- -, ~ -
'"Whereas when such rate .of interest is drawn from :the brains and industry of those .engaged in making it
productive .it" can- have, no further
claims upon labor;^ arid-
,"Whereas,- the. production of Uabor
is now "utilized to'not only pay excessive interest on actual capital/.but-also
to 'pay the same' rate on watered
stocks whibh. represents no true value
and often in excessMif the actual- capital involved, and,      ■-, • •      r,"   .,.   -
. "Whereas, <we belleve..the ceaseless
30Vents a ton.'  That coal was sold to conni<rt   between .capital   and   labor
g'Where'as tlie tariff is a most <xri-
equitable,'"qnfaif - and. unjust method
of ralslng,,jublic-revenues, as it„bears
more iheayiiy; upon tlie poor than the
ric,h;r"an^ (whereas we believe that the
"best* lnterejjW of the' public would be
served" by'^absolute' freedom of. trade;'
"Therefore, .be.it resolved that this
conventibn^represeriting 14,000 farmers
of AlbeftaYplaces'Itself on record as
in favor qf .tbe" complete abolition o£

the farmers at around ?6 per ton and
the beef that the farmers produced
was sold to the miners around 30
cents. a' pound. - That, he said' was
unfair.
As the farmers had helped tho miners ln their successful efforts to get
better appliances in the mines for the
guarding of life and limb, Mr. Wheat-
ley thought they could help In the getting of better wages. When he had
concluded the delegates 'applauded,
The strong appeal for the "Navy"
motion (viz opposing Borden's bill)
was made by G. F. Lively in an eloquent address to the people of the
west as a means of protection, and
everything which came under the
guise of protection was worth watching. He asked a reason for. the expenditure of ?35,000,0O0 for the purpose,
of protecting oats that sold-_at 16
cents a bushel.. #"'- ■
"Who is trying, to ^run this'gag on
you," asked Mr. Lively. , - "There was
never a bigger fraud than tlie gag of
patriotism."
War had never .settled a great problem, the speaker emphatically declared. Tn evidence' lie said, that in
South Africa' when the war was ended Great Britain was facing a greater
problem than she ever did during the
fight. He had been through that'time
and saw the ragged side of it, with
homes laid desolate and families destroyed, while the once comfortable
buildings were laid in smoking ruins.
As he concluded,the oration Mr Lively was greeted with a demonstration
of prolonged cheers which lasted for,
some little time.
An effort at rebuttal was made by
A. E, Cox, of Pincher Creek,'who was
howled down with jeers and hisses. He
said that he bad never heard so many
contradictions as those given by the
last speaker. If -the Boers had armed
themselves better, Great Britain could
never have beaten them. This statement called forth shouts of "rubbish"
and_.lond_jeers_and_Jaug_iter, Tie-
closing words before he'was compelled
to take his seat were,. "You-re rock-,
bottom .free traders, and unless you
support the only flag that represents
it you've lost free trade for ever."
Amongst the resolutions adopted by
the U. P. A', at their convention "were:
For Organized Labor
. A resolution 'pronouncing, the complete sympathy of the delegates with
the cause of organized labor and
pledging the U.P.A, to the support bf
the labor unions in their movements
t
for Increasing compensation, was
adopted without discussion. It readB.
1 "Whereas capital doeo not produce
arises from the aggrandizement of cap
ital to take from labor this unjust
hire;,        . .      '  , ■  ' . \ •
"Therefore be it fully resolved by
this" union that we are ,in full sympa-'
thy with the cause of. labor to secure
Its just reward and that we will use
our united and Individual influence to
help them obtain the same."     r
The Navy Resolution
"Whereas, among the Christian nations^ of the earth tliere is an ever'1 Increasing desire upon the part of the
common people that war and preparation for war which entails such a fearful harvest of human lives and'places
such a crushing financial burden upon
the (taxpayers, should be' brought to
an end, and that this vast energy now
devoted to purposes of destruction and
death be utilized- in' the cultivation of
he arts of peace, and that instead of
.promoting distrust > and  .hatred   be7
tween nation's, _a spirit of confidence
and brotherhood should be encouraged.    , ,, , •  . l    -
"And whereas, both the Conservative and Liberal parties in parliament
have each proposed that $35,000,000 or
more of the public revenues should be
devoted to the construction of naval
armament without   a   mandate from
the people;'    .                    \-
"Therefore, be it resolved:
"That this convention of delegates
representing 14,000 farmers of Alberta
places itself on. record as firmly opposed to any expenditure whatever of
public monies for the construction of
naval armament, but decidedly in .favor of Canada encouraging to the utmost  the ■ movement   towards' international peace and disarmament and
the settlement of International, difficulties by arbitration. ,
"And, further, this convention is
strongly of the opinion. thkt parliament' is 'not justified in making any
further-move on'the'naval question'
until the same has been submitted to
an actual referendum of the people." ,

Should Have Been Heard.",
In view of the,uproar that occurred
at the close of the U. F, A.- at'Paget
Hall yesterday afternoon' when a motion was made, to affiliate with the' A1-!
berta Federation of Labor, a representative of the Herald had- an interview
this morning with J.'O! Jones, the president'of, the latter organization, and
also C. Stubbs, president of District 18,
of the mineworkers" union, whom L Tt
English, tlie. local labor representative
alleged1 had been invited to,address the
convention. -' ,'     , ": ■   ,    .-  -
""Our attitude in coming here,',' remarked Mr. Jones, "was on the understanding that.an invitation would have
been given to.me and Mr English,'the
secretary of the federation, to address
the meeting. This was given to,President Tregillus, of the U. F.' A., and "he
gave us to'uhderstand that the matter
of affiliation'would be one of the questions that'would be before the convention. He.also suggested-that both of
us would have the floor,to explain the
purpose of the Alberta Federation of
Labor on! the understanding that, we'
did not occupy too much time on" account of the large number of matters
that would be discussed. . .*,
- All In Favor Then
"Mr Tregillus and Mr. Quinsey, with
other six"" delegates were present during the -convention at which the federation • of labor was organized In
Lethbridge in June last,-and all the
delegates of the U. F. A.', were heartily,
in favor, of forming an Alberta federa-

Your Earning Capacity is Your Parally'B Capital. How long would it tako to accumulate a sum

Lifo is uncertain—men apparently in the host of health tlio suddenly. In ordor to mnko provision in tho evont of your death tho Sun Lifo Assurance Company of Canada will, by yonr depositing a comparatively small amount each year for a definite number of years, pay to your wife or

l-e made, and can he shown, to be truo,
thnt prlvato proporty Is a better means
ol Attaining this nnd than colloctlvlst
rropertv.     It  must he  shown , that
talk on things as they appear; not as
they are. There are a few slaves'
in .the Rocky Mountain district of Alberta who are. not yet -sufficiently
class conscious ,to resist these plaus-
able, and to them, apparently logical,
arguments. The capitalist politicians
in'said riding are at tlieir wits' end
trying to devise means "to defeat the
sitting member," as tho district is
populated almost wholly by wage slaves, and,the "sitting member", has-not
only used the legislative assembly to
spread the propaganda of the uprising
wage slaves, but has also many times
appealed to the Liberals and Conservatives, who number forty of the forty
one members of that assembly, to support bills that If they- became law
would' assist the slaves in their struggle against the rule of capital. But
on every occasion Liberals" and Conservatives voted against said bills,
and now they must lie as "to why. The
fate of the bill to make legal the fortnightly payment of wages, now known
in^newspaper circles as O'Brien's annual, for I have introduced it every
session, and I will continue to clo so,
has,been told in this paper. Years-
agio Comrade Kingsley wrote in one
of his editorials In the Western Clarion. "The long suit of the wage slaves
is his short memory," and I am even
more convinced that a short memory
is the greatest weakness of most slaves that are not yet Socialists. The
capitalist,politicians swat them in the
face with coarse vulgar insults'" and
humilate them in every conceivable
way. When the election is over they,
for a time, feel quite indignant. By
the time of the next election they
have not only forgotten, but actually
go-nosing about in a half or less conscious state, seeking for, and are dis*
appointed if the dose is not repeated.
That's why my 'comrades have asked
me tb write -a short 'history of the
I firmly believe tliere are more well
signed petitions in favor bf, and none
against thc Fortnightly, Pay Bill than

before that assembly. A few members of each party, those representing
constituencies where most of the electors'have made known that they are
in favor of a legal fortnightly pay,
were allowed to - support It—-that's
what they,call good politics. It Is
amusing to listen to.-the baby-like arguments, most of them put up either
for or against such a bill. Only a
fow of tho Honorable Members are
wholly conscious of the Interests they
aro' Ber,vlng. The few leaders of both
parties havo always bitterly opposed
my bills, "      " '
I will now write the gist of the discussion on this bill nt tho'last session.
Somo''opposed It becauso they said
It would work a hardship on farmers.
I said farmers are a part of the gront
whgo slave class; I would not introduced bill that would do Injury to any

sore, frost bite, chilblains, or a "raw"
place, which at times makes it agony
for you to go about your household
duties ? If so, Zam-Duk will give you
relief, and will heal the frost-damaged
skin. Anoint the sore places at night,
Zam-Buk's rich healing essences will
sink into the wounds, end the smarting, and will heal quickly.
MrB. Yollon, of Portland, says: "My
hands wuie so sore and cracked that )t
w.ia egouy to put tliem near water.
When I did so they would smart and
bum &% if I had scuttled them. J. seemed
