" The .Manchester Geological and
Mining "Society ?met on the 14th inst.,
'Mr. George S. Caldwell, of West-
houghton, read a, paper on the Chinese
coal fields. ,
I Many coalfields in' China, he said,
were .worked- by„natives and foreigners. '.'"All the various kinds, of coal
were represented in one of another of
the various-.districts. . The province
of Shansi was nearly all one large
coalfield, the estimated quantity of
coal iu this province being six'hundred ,ai_(l thirty thousand millions of
tons';* or many times the quantity of
ungotten coal in Great Britain? "■
Special attention was directed to
the Lla New Ho coalfield ln the province of Honan. During recent years
boring bad been carried out in a
thorough and systematic manner by
Europeans under European management, and the coalfield had been proved for many Bquare miles!" with seams
of coal-varying from 10 to" 40 feet-in
thickness." - The'sinking was hot such
a-formidable operation as it was in
thia country, there being no very hard
strata to-pierce. The .water was the
real obstacle, and this was encounter-

ed in-very large volumes.. ?."That,a
system of ventilation was necessary in
the mine,',' Mr." Caldwell .went on, "was
one of the most difficult things "to impress upon the' Chinese mind.     Separation doors and brattice_.cloths were
erected",under the'instruction .of   a
European, J^but .when he was absent
the door would be probbed-open, or
the brattice cloths nailed on one'side,
or torn down: because the workmen
thought-that they interfered with the
drawing of coal,  or with' .the men
shouling to one another.  , They also
could not see the approach of a deputy, r 'Another solution .lay in the
fact that often the missing brattice
cloths-bad been converted into wearing apparel.   A.   .     It is fortunate'
that no gas has been,found in these
mines, because the Chinaman likes to
indulge in a short but very frequent
smoke with a' pipe made from a short
piece of bamboo, and if there are
no lamps or torches he uses his flint
and steel- to light up.     if it were
necessary to prohibit smoking In-the
mines some very - efficient   system
would have to be adopted to overcome
their extreme craftiness, and it would
be necessary to make-them without
pockets?   .   .   .   The Chinese are   a
hard-working and industrious people,'
not difficult to, supervise, and very
docile,"quick to plck.up-.new^jnethods
and adapt them selves": to?- EurbpVan
ways, but "they are yer £ careies_s"al.out

to treat:wIth'contempt.*7^'One;of their
greatest failings is to ddse;off,tb-eleepl
at.all hours;and; in aU^sbrfsT-ot"positions." "Manyylives. have7been"?;lost

Proposals were made In;one,case'
to take the'railway alongside the.min-'
S, but as-this would interfere with
e employment of barrow coolies the
matter- was promptly /droppedA The
difficulties of race,? Mr. Caldwell added, "will quickly disappear when the
large numbers of the present generation have' completed their education
on Western "methods, and are able to
appreciate? the necessity of. working
hand in hand, with foreign.enterprise
for the development of their, rich
country and will bring out.the qualities5 which "have been lying ^dormant

Western Director Speaks.
Mr.-, John Kennedy, ■ one of the
Western -* Directors of. the Bank and
.also, a; Director of the * Grain Growers' Grain-Company, stated "that, the"
name "Home'Bank" was becoming a'
household word, in Western Canada.
He -assumed "that; -the . President,
when he spoke of the valuable, connection' the B_.nk had made in the
Northwest, ' referred to the Grain
Growers'? Grain Company,- atid he,-
Mr.> Kennedy,'-'was in a position ' tb
speak , clearly ^on the subject. The
business, of-.the' Grain .Company had
steadily'■ grown. It has now a paid-
'up capital of almost $600,009.00 and
a" foundation,, laid for a nice, reserve

it is a matter of 'congratulation' that
they ' have been 'ddiijg^weir almost

been estimated. ,that in five "years

Open Shop the Big Issue wjth United
- ' '       '-- States Workmen   -
NEW' YORK, July 2.—As a sequel
to the-announcement-last., night that
seven steamship companies with "whom
thn seamen have been negotiating
wculd^not,"recede.from their decision
to employ labor Vn- an open shop basis after Monday? - leaders of the un-
ions of the firemen ana seamen called
a special meeting "which ended .with
an order for a'general' strike today.  ;
The strike-plans were placed in the
hands -of "an- executive committee
which ,Is expected-to-have a force of
delegates on the* water front today
who will? attempt tb persuade' longshoremen, seamen and firemen employed on /coastwise ,steamship .lines"
to join the^ strike. "7 '. ': * *• >-
'7The"leaders said 35,000" firemen and
seamen* were-well organized and that
_it was hoped, besides these classes.of
workers, -to 'induce- the ,40,000-long-
go,out.,.   . ' ■ '4VM.   \'     .-',..
A The "seamen of {Marseilles,. Prance,
have voted .for a "general strike.   ■   •
I think the Houdanone of the "most
beautiful birds in the fancy.. When
11 say Hoiidan, I don't mean a black
one or a white one with a crest on its
head the size of half, a"dollar, because
I would not give the name of Hoiidan
to such a bird on no "consideration
whatever, r But I do like to see a good
mottled bird. , This'is what I mean?
A-bird mottled7a-, beetle black.arid'
white, not patchy, a good mottled
crest,- leaf comb, and' five toes? and
then we have a bird ?good to look
upon".     "  ' "",,.,
, They, are, excellent layers and good
table.fowls.,-,.  And I don't think for
crossing, purposes they can be* beat.
Just a word of advice: don't try to
keep Houdans with other birds, especially cockerels, because owing to
the crest the other birds take advan-.
tage of them/ and* they will not only
be afraid but will lose flesh.     And
Instead of being a bird of beauty they
Avill look as though death would be
a; welcome release, to them.
-Well, fanciers, what are you doing
these.days? ,. Have you thought of
what lies before, you..    The young
stock is growing fast, and the hens
are no doubt laying well. ' But,«there
will, soon be a change.' You . should
at this time overhaul/the   roosting
.quarters,, give them some good lime-
wash with-a little disinfectant, added?
Carbolic acid is- good, but'not too
strong, or else' you might not.like it
if any should fall upon you.    The old
birds will soon be moulting, and if
you are to have eggs in winter time
you will have ,to give -them- every attention,  because  it's  a very'trying
time.for them.' _ If you neglect them
they drag on and winter time is upon
them before they get all tneir new
feathers, and the result Is no eggs
until"summer comes again. , Now the
young stock.., '"Don't bring them ori
to lay too soon.   If you do' the' chances'
are that they will lay a few eggs, and
then go irito'moult.-   The'earliest for
them to lay'is,the beginning of November, il",gives them-abetter "chance
to develop, and'' i.o   go   on .laying
etraight .through, the winter.     .Oon-t
be in too-gr.'st a-hurry v.ith'the vou i-
stocky I myself have been drawn in lb
setting pii'lets to lay :and I-can e-e-f
them^laying. ABut'I cannot say that
rhaye done "good with the resiiits in
the" long run;, -After"a few eggs have
been-iaidrieg weakness probably will
show; itself_ amongst them and other
things too numerous to mention.' But
we can'deal-with those things later, on.
So, in leaving the subject let me say
again: .Get alKthe'dlrt out of the
coops; get the, birds clean, and then
your^c'Jances 0"i keeping the stock
healthy and-egg production high., is
good, if you "don't, well, it will be
the .reverse. -. * •- - '• - *-"
;-Jiist,"a few ..words ori'shows and
showing. -., Por my , own part I
should-.like to see a society formed. .Surely there are plenty of
fanciers around.- And it would not
only be"aj.ood*thing for seeing who
has the".best birds,, but it would be
the' means of getting ' fanciers together' and exchanging views with each
other. It just rests with the Ledger
readers, tosay what shall be done in
the , mater/.,.There, is all. kinds of
clubs, why not a Poultry Club? Just
give us your opinion of what you think
about it.* - I do know, that if we foriri
a society that,the good birds will be
brought out and better price will be
paid both for stocky and eggs. When
you look at lt, one will" give good
money for st'ocki" and to make it
known he has to blow his own trumpet. yBut; if a show could be arranged the birds wuld answer for them-

Last Saturday's games in this competition furnished. some peculiar're-?
suits, and makes the; spotting, of the
champions a very uncertain speculation. ' The" decisive defeat of the leaders by the Coleriaan Club; has materially injured their chances of ultimate
success," and has given the competition that touch of uncertainty, which
tends to maintain interest right to the
close of the competition. All the clubs
with" the single exception of Hosmer
are possible champions, and he must
be a very astute student of form, or a"
giiesscr who predicts the winner.
Bellevue and Michel have the most
favorable position and,are relatively
equal in points.     They have yet   to
meet each other home and away, and
these two games' will have ano important bearing on tho'championshlp. Jf
they divide tho points they will "tie
with 13 points each, but if either club
win. both games they will secure the
championship.    Of course, we are as-
suming that Mlchol will win their postponed game with Hosmer at Michel/
At any rate, the two games between
Bellevue and' Michel will be watched
with the keenest interest by the other
Interested  clubs.      The  vagaries,'of;
football form is amply'illustrated by
the result of,the Coal Creek vs. Mi'v

after winning by 3 goals to l.'vat the-
Creek; lost at Michel,"just one ,wee!t

THE question of tlie nationalization of the mil-
ways is now seriously engaging the attention
of the people of Great Britain. A deputation from
the parliamentary committee of the Trades Union
Congress recently waited upon Premier Asqnith
and other members of the Cabinet when the matter
wa.. thoroughly gone into. There is little doubt
that since the. recent lahor troubles in Great
Britain a very strog sentiment has developed in favor of the nationalization of, not
only the railways, but of all other pnblie utilities
Whilst the masses may not benefit directly and
■immediately through such protests against thi
present economic system, it is a graat incentirs tc
making both the masses and the classes think
"furiously." It opens their eyes and they be:
to realize that something must be radically wrong
when the man who produces is the one who benefi!
least, and is, together with his wife and children,
practically on the verge of starvation.
Whilst it must be admitted that so long
governments arc in the hands of capitalists, and
are there to  protect capital, ihe nationalization
of one or other of the public utilities can matter
little to the working class.     Tet it is a step in th.
right direetion for the pnblie benefit.    It is always
easier to deal with a bunch of politicians who are
forced to come to you, even if only occasionally,
and seek yonr vote, than it is with a set of corporation bloodsuckers whose only aim and object in
life is to extract the last ounce of profit from you.
Mr. Asqnith, who is not in office for the health
of the worlong class, at the interview went as
far as to say that they would not regard sneh
transfer as involving less the introduction of
new principle than an extension of an existing on
State interference being granted it is simply
question of degree how far it should be carried.
The nationalization of the railways of the United
Kingdom would be an undertaking of unparalleled
magnitude.     The paid-up capital in 1911 was fl,
324000,000 sterling.  The gross receipts were £127,
250,000 and the expenditure £78,500,000.
Successful state ownership of railways is not i
novel undertaking in Europe, and, in view of the
results obtained in Germany and Belgium it is some
what surprising that pnblie opinion should be so
far behind in Great Britain. In north Germany
and Belgium there can he no question of the belief
that the public is better served than in Great Britain, especially in the matter of goods traffic.
Freights are quite commonly a half, a third, or
even little over a quarter, of corresponding British
freights; passenger tickets are much cheaper, and
in Belgium the extraordinary cheap workman's
ticket enable two-thirds .of the town workmen to
live in the country.
It may be noted that Sir George Gibbs, former
general manager of the North Eastern and now the
head of the national public highways, without
doubt tbe greatest ex-railway manager in England,
holds that while private ownership may be best
for the building stage of railways,, the state ean
best manage them now that stage is over. Transfer
in itself is almost solely a financial problem, and
as sneh varies with financial conditions.
That the railways in Great Brtain stand in a different relation to the state than these corporations
in America or Canada makes possible their nation-
lization without confiscation. Parliament which
gave the power of compulsory purchase without
which the railways could never have been constructed has always claimed more than ordinary
control over their management and since 1844 has
had the right to take them over on three months
notiee at twenty-five years' purchase.
T N Great Britain as the result of the industrial
* unrest a civilian police force has been organized to protect property rights. Amongst this
volunteer corps are to he found, without doubt, an
interesting collection of human beings imbued with
the strong moral necessity of perpetuating a system
which demands that the impulse of the working
class for a share in the abundance of wealth they
create shall not find expression. It is, perhaps
unnecessary to point out that those who make up
this civilian army are members of the working
class. Tbe capitalist class have always found sufficient of the workers who are ready and willing at
all times to defend them in their privilege of ex-
ploitng their fellow men. These working class as-
sassins have failed to realize that the interests
their class are in direct opposition to those who use
them so effectively jn the struggle on the industrial
Strange as it may seem these same individuals
will also enlarge on the moral force so essential
the success of the working class movement which
aims to secure control of the forces of production
for the benefit of the people.     How beautiful the
ethics of capitalism manifest themselves when put
to the test during times of industrial unrest, not to
mention the various contradictions that are
(fenced every- day to those who are_ observant
ongh to notice them!
We have been so often criticized oh the stand
taken that "Might is Eight" that the following
quotation from an English newspaper will prove
of interest to our readers and critics. To off-set
this civilian police force the strikers in Great Britain proposed forming a Strikers' Civilian. Force
and advised them to arm themselves with the thickest cudgels', and the material they wanted were to
be recruited with es-army and ex-navy.men—the
materia, trained by capitalism for the purpose of
fighting only. The paper in question wishes to
place this before its readers in a legal aspect, and
"If some of Mr. Ben Tillett's 'force1 used their
cudgels, besides making them liable to a charge
of assault, the joint action might constitute a
riot," said a well-known barrister.
"If one of these policemen used his cudgel lie
could be arrested and charged with individual
We do not wish to convey the impression that
advocate violent methods on the part of the wo
ers. but we think the above illustrates only too
forcibly that capitalist law and order is a great
esty on justice, which it so loudly proclai:
ears of those who are so liable to accept the
teachings of their masters as gospel.
To organize a police force for the protection of
human lives rather than the protection of property
is criminal under capitalism, because the
present day society is the right of property.
baed are the so-called public with the sensi
perty rights above the rights of humanity that they
see nothing ludicrous in this state of affairs, and
stand by with amazement when the workers ever
think of adopting the brutal tactics of the capitalist class.
"Whilst the workers may resort to physical force
in these struggles on the industrial field and
tually through bitter experience realize that when
they as a class know enough the capitalists will no
longer be able to pit one section of the workers
against another, then will these brutal tactics disap-
It would seem, however, that "The thickest cudgels" is the only enlightening force for some
of the workers, and tbe sooner this process of education is completed the better for the working class.
The capitalist class, evidently know enough for they
wisely refrain from talking more than a :
executive part in this program of repression.   They
true to their, class position and as they
longer perform a useful function in the sphere of
production, so they simply stand by and let the
working class, divided in sections, fight one anoth-
and thus perpetuate the privileges of a master
class.     The education of the working class is
painful process, but capitalism is surely an effecti'
system for intensifying the desire of the workers
for securing that knowledge which shall accomplish their triumph.     Do you know what the preservation of property rights means to you and your
class*   If not, it is surely time you got wise.

At a time when the Dominion was celebrating her

the adjoining provinces came to her rescue in giving refief, and with so many of the people injured

remuneration, according to this theory, must he

the basis if all business and wages were in no sense
dependent on the amount of profit. So in Great
Britain and elsewhere employers sought to increase
the number of trained workers, knowing that the
greater thc competition for employment the lower
tbe scale they would have to pay. But this alti-
itely led to the rise of trade unions to the limitation of the number of apprentices and to all the
other restrictions wrung by thc combination of
workers from reluctant employers and the general
lockouts used to resist what they considered unreasonable demands. Now the civilized world is faced
with syndicalism—by the threat of a universal
strike that will paralyze all industries, all transportation systems and the whole economy of the
nations. Is it surprising then that the wiser men

Uncle Into buying a plpo for tho mod-

him for hiH loss, Surely Providence

-, -BERLIN;,Julyf,2.—The off-season iri
politics-has been-ehllvened by the outbreak ?pf, what appears, to be a serious t crisis • in7 the .^Centrum, > or Clerical party?-, ty. was:occasioned   by   a
declaration of-the. Pope' giving   his
approval to ttie' so-called Association
of Catholic Labor;-Unions, the sinall-
er.bf. the two Catholic labor, organizations of the country.., Most of the
Catholic workingmen are organized iri
the .Christian   Labor,', Unions, -which
contairi about 360,000, members,' while
the association, is said to have only
about 10,000. , The Christian Unions
are not exclusively* Catholic,' though
by far the larger part ,of their members belong to that church'. Their chief
aim is ,to oppose Socialism! arid they
regard it as necessary to admit Protestants in order to have the best
success in thai direction.   ' In    this
point they have,the support   of   the
Clerical', , party.     The    association,
however, strongly 7condemns the  inter-denominational , character of   the
unions arid demands that labor?organ?
izatlbns be fully .under .the control or
the Catholic church;   and a wing of
the Clerical party called the "Berlin
movement" supports this view.'.
, 'Friction has been.growing between
the  two  labor    organizations,-   and
still more between  the two corresponding wings"of*'the Centrum.   Only
rectnly , Herr  Roeren,' one   of - the"
prominent representatives of the par?
ty iri'the Reichstag, resigned his seat
because he was not in harmony with
the'policy of minimizing the clerical
character of'the party.   , The present
crisis was brought on by* the association,, which    recently   !;ent   an   address , of homage toyhe Pope, con-
tainirigAit was said; a' sharp attack
on the unions;.and it,was,ln answer
to this that the, Pope uttered liis condemnation bf, the latter, pronouncing
their/fundamental' principles false? .
Since..this'declaration was made the
Christian unions' have issued a statement in.'which they used exceedingly'
sharp language   against   the associa--
tion, saying'among other, things'.that
its_aririrpn9ltQ__**tip_T>«r. £._.,,«___li:__l_. <_■.__
max to a- long campaign bf-slander
on the part of the'association against
the Christian Unions," and that the
"Supreme head ot the Catholic church1
has never been more disgracefully deceived about the;'naturerand..character of the (ChristIa'n;L_-bbr Unions in
Germany."-V The >hole7'matter, has
stirred up* a vast 'deal of animated
dlBCUBslori'in the press of, all parties,
There Is even considerable .talk of a
probable split in the Clerical party.   '

.The.end and.aim.we.seek Is to unite
the working5* class.' 7 Nothing should
be tolerated,in ourin'ethods'or in our
principle's which* promises tokeep the"
workers from-final unity.     'It is the
object of every enemy of the workers'
to keep them quarreling among themselves.     And any trade unionist or
Socialist whose "words'or actions fo--
ment division or dissension,,consciously or unconsciously, help the enemies
of labor. _ - '       ■'   ' y oy, ,. ■•','
Only the other* day a leading' Socialist declared: "I- am" opposed, under
all "circumstances, to any-rparty alliance of* affiliations with'reactionary
trade unions."     That .sounds- very
big and fine arid revolutionary.   Yet
it is the' very ' essence, of* reaction.
Had Marx said', that'the Internation-'
al  "Worklngmen's  Association  would'
never have been born.   Had  Socialist leaders of Europe taken that position, there would not today exist a
single great working   class   political
party.   - Such' a statement Is just as
harmful to the working class'* as that
of the conservative leader'who declares:  "The trade union, can never'
have any affiliation with radicals and
Socialists." n : .'    '
v The "'great" leader who claims that
the working,class can ocly he united
when It.submits itself slavishly to his
tactics and- vows-with up-raised hands
obedience, to every item of Its creed
may find himself big in the midst of a
tiny sect,", but; never .the founder .of a
working class'movement, either political or'Mndustrial. 7 * ? ■ J
After some labor i" have gathered
together-And printed in-the articles
which preceded a mass, of .facts which
show now the'unity of the working
class has been achieved in Europe.'
--That unity has been achieved * by
deeds more thon by- words. -'-* A little
story of Bejgium will illustrate what I

That country'ha's'a powerful and united labor" movement. The trade unions-and the 'Socialist party work in
absolute', harmony. The, party ' of

union agitator or Socialist came Into
that district he'was usually mobbed.
When the strike' occurred the Catholic
workers discovered that the capitalists
who owned-the quarries had a strong
and powerful influence over the leaders of both'the liberal and clerical
parties.. '"As'.a' result, the strlkers
were-abandoned" to tholr fate and
their leaders-left, them to be starved
into submlt.sion.'-.At the-very moment
when'the strike seemed all but lost
a long lino of bread wagons filed into

wore the wagons of tho Socialist cooperative stores and they drew up at
ovory house-to deposit * supplies bf

meant. '-In an hour of their dlroBt

Of course," It would be'folly "for a?ny
one  to  maintain  that' the ' Socialist
party is indifferent to the views ;held
by trade  unionists. ■    The  Socialist
believes that no man cau ?be a _good
trade unionist without being "a Socialist, and he ought also believe that-no
workingman can be a good Socialist
without also being a'trade unionist,
Experience, however, has shown'that
conylcitions cannot.be crammed down
the throat i of any .independent "man.
And1 to those who-have  tried  such
tactics Bebel has rightly said: "Have
some confidence in our cause—whoever is so much convinced as I am of
the conquering strength,of the Socialist ideas and -of their power of attraction, knows that they are gradually, winning over the entire working
class,, evenAlF - THEY   ARE- NOT
Let us not forget that in the sphere"
of social - reform';   as T elsewhere, the
proverb holds ^ good ' that   'appetite
comes with'eating'; *and there is no
need to say; which' of' ail the political'
parties is resolved and duty bound to
best satisfy.the appetite bf the work-"
ing class for, reform?'.'
. This points. the way. ■ - As. soon as
the-Socialist party fights for the material Interests of '-the working class
day'in and;-day put, the'workii^g class
will  become Socialist.     When   .the
unions appeal to.-the workers to organize thfey tempt fthem with  the promise
of higher wages, shorter hours  and
better conditions.-*,. Tliey appeal  to
the Immediate Interests of the workers.  * In the .political field the Socialist, party, tempts ,the workers by political reforms* that appeal to the_lmme-
dittte interests of'the "working class.
pen when every, unionist is a Socialist"
and  every.' Socialist^a unionist/?. 7.
What• will" happen, when both'movements of the working .class realize that
unity of their' ends^aWd alms?   What
•-will, happen'wh)en'ffle'!-militants of
both movement's :*are'l'tho* same;-* and
when in all'struggles:the party and
the union act together?'
■Well, 'the only 'answer is that it'
doesn't matter what'happens.   When
that 'dajAcomes7 there will bo llttlo
difference of opinion regarding tho
relations "which''should-' 'exist between
the two great'arms'-of the working
class.    -When the. woriters, aro united; in principle and'in"tactics, and
when' both' movement's of the working
class are bound together by a personal
union, there will bo no,need for tho
one or tho other wing to discuss the
matter of relatlon'shij).        ,'   '     '
" Thb' only rcasohlforthttt„dlBCusslon
today is duo to the fact,that?1 tho two
movements have different   programs,
different tactics,    , Wo must, there«
f'oro,, rospoct each, other's, autonomy

tho boBt judges of >vhat is' tho. wisest

host Judges of what, is tho wisest

And, in*fact,- any attempt' of tho ono

noutrallty, which ndcosBlty and not

moan to'promote division nnd 'dissension In tho working'class movomont,

article' to glye any' personal?opinion's.;
I \ have"5 endeavored 'to mass - here"'' the
views of the*leading7Socialists' anci<
tradV™ion-Bt? throughout'the*world.
With hardly an exc^ptloh^thes'e-have
condemned rival or . dual'^'unionlsm.'
With' hardly, an exception"*1 they''have
deplored polities in\the, unions W'her-
'ever that is likely -to encourage "division. .Without exceptiqn;/they,have
pleaded for tolerance, courtesy;"nm
tual respect and harmonious' action
between lh3 party and the"union. Thej'
have sought marriage, not,"a. forced,
union between the two great organize-'
tions of th<^ working class. ' They
.believe ih political. unionlsin as they
believe In-trades unionism, and they
have vsought,'vtq, develop theso,'two
movements {to' the highest -possible
point of efficiency. . Ever since ...its.
foundation-the 'Socialist party% ha'si
inaintalried a - policy that'-ls founded
on tho highest and-best traditions of,
the internajionar movement. ./Despite
the fact that some of its most not-'
able leaders liave.'violated the -party*
policy, it has nevertheless resolutely'
refused to alter that 'policy.- It has
refused to meddle in" trade, union af-'
fairs; to take sides In disputes between rival factions in' the trade union
movement, and It has ilbt, as a party,,
attempted,' to pledge the trade unions
tp Socialism; It has denounced rival
unionism,' commended the" 'efforts of
all economic organizations, and stood
ready * at all times to ' render moral
and financial aid to every body of organized labor that is- struggling .6
improve-its material conditions.' And
while pursuing this policy, it has built
up the beginning of a wonderful political .^organization of the * working
class. Growth of the political movement has been phenomenal; and nothing but'it's own mistake's,can prevent
It becoming in the near future one of
the greatest political organizations in
the world. *.-.        "    "' 7
7-Yet the success of the policy of the"
past has not prevented the constant
clamoring of those"-,who would alter
the party's policy.-" •- Some would have
us seek to turn the trade unions' away
from their present'work for1 the'pur-'

have Wforce the trade, unions to, In-,

pompous Instructions to the' 'unions
tliat: they/miiBt adopt an Industrial
form- of' organization. Some' would
have,us*declare for or against direct
action,, Including 'the general 'strike
and* sabotage,' -The latter ^"are, of

firm thereupon fitted up tbe ship
Lady Jocelyn to accommodate s
hundreds of "free laborers". and this
ship was towed to Newport and the
laborers worked tbe Hoarder
vessels. A tremendous outburst of
indignation from the unions followed
and the Houlder snips were boycotted
aroond tbe coast. The firm met tbe
situation by taking the Lady Joeelyn

the free laboters to work.
