affected shipyards. All builders are
working at full pressure .and in no

now building on the Clydo has just
been sold to a Dutch company at" an
increase of price of $100,000 on the
original contract. Oiie increase of
$50,000 on a smaller vessel building in
the Wear on the east coast, was refused?" A London firm invited offers

Officers of the British Merchant Ma.,
rine are planning a union in their own
defence and support. Such a- union
would doubtless make for the greater
safety, of travellers. The officers-are
negotiating with the Sailors'' Union
and with five trade unions' with' the
purpose of making a united' demand
"upon owners for a minimum condition
of service. •< The classes** concerned'
are officers, engineers, Marconi opera-

interested in the movement said that

who goes without one glass of beer or.

is much more of a strong man than
Lord Milner ever-was,In Africa.' - For

THAT "Premier McBride has dorm somo good—
Jor himself—whilst on his visit to'England is
evident by the honor bestowed upon him^by his
gracious sovereign. The ostensible object of his
visit was in connection with certain benefits to be
obtained from the B. C. Electric Company for the
people bf Vancouver Island, but as it now appears
that must have been very much of a secondary consideration with the Honorable Premier. What was
" evidently more in his mind was the interests of
McBride. no was made much of in England, tool-
care to be .constantly in the limelight, and his. "labors" were rewarded with a knighthood. "What
the most disgusting part of it'all Atfas, as R. P. Pettipiece'puts it, "the exhibition of belly-crawling
sycophancy on the part of the prominent: Conservative press.','     Of course we,.can hardly biame
them,, they were merely looking after their bread
'■■' ' '
and butter.
-. -.
Tn all other respects .the Premier's visit was a
' failure/ and the people in whose benefit he went,
at the provinces'expense be it remembered, are beginning to sec it. He made a brave attempt fo
hide it behind press interviews in which he*enraptured over B. C. 's prosperity and the good feeling towards us in the Old Country. Very pretty!
This, together with the honor conferred upon the
whole . of the people of B." C. by making their
"head" a full-fledged kniglit, blinded some of his
flunkeys for a while, but today they are .beginning
■to ask \yhat benefit they get out of it all.
"Sir Richarcl, as he will now lovingly be called, is
' an„adept in the art of publicity.     He knows full
,Lwell the benefit of it and to his credit be it said, he
make the best use of jty-for McBride.-' ,   '
*■""   One of Sir Richard's, greatest coups-is undoubtedly 'a study of himself" in "T.,p.'s Magazine,"
comity and' borough a register of* every'defective
person who is - placed, under the control,\ bfTthe
"county, or borough council, subjecf.tp,'th"e supervision .of a commissioner attached to.the'Hofqe .Office"
A'defective, according tb the bill^includes:the?idiot",-
the imbecile, the lunatic, the dull "'arid backward
child, the habitual criminal,* the'habitual drunkard^'
such other, person -as the < Home - Secretary?'-i\ay
choose to, specify by order'.persons, whom it is."de-?'
sirable in the interests'of the Community to deprive"
of the opportunity of procreating children;-" and
"feeble-minded persons"; that is to say, persons who
may. be capable of earning'their living under.fav-
orable circumstances, but.;are incapable,, through
mental defects existing from birth oi* from an early
age. (1) of compelirig/ori equal" terms with their
normal fellows; 6r!;(2jy6f inanaging themselves
'and their affairs witli-ordinary .prudence."    • „    .
-*•/.    f  '      •      '■- ' -.
The^process^of determining whether parties are
fit subjects for'the register-lends'" itself-to abuse.
For instance, the.certifeate\of.two doctors will be
sufficient to condemn, arid a police-magistrate-sit-,
ting in a private .court," may then 'deprive the
subject of.the enquiry of the right to(,further control his own life. "Under tlie present system of capitalistic greed'a rich relative may easily.be" got rid of
in this'Ayay. , The danger is that in the hands of
officious, incompetent and opinonated officials, arid
it must be admitted that quite a number come under this category, unfortunates who,are.more the victims of their environment than of their own natural weaknesses will be enslaved and imprisoned. * -
The bill is a step in the right direction,'as it is the'
duty of the state to protect arid'guard tlie weak and
defective. The major portion of0our ills,' v/oes and
defects in this glorious civilization of ours Is due to
nothing less than this atrocious and tyrannous system .we labor under. ' The iribocile,,the idiot arid
the lunatic are all the heritage of capitalism,'which
withholds from the mother and babe the necessary
nourishments and the very.necessities of life. 'The
pregnant .woman toiling in a factory untii a fety
hours before the birth of her "child, has riot the necessary strength and health'to bring forth a normal
life'.- It is this hellish, system of profit grinding
-that is making it necessary -fc-r ,the British Government to make an* effort to protect weak-minded
persons. Why not abolish the system that' makes
such incongruities? • It, is" in. the hands of ./the
workers to remedy the existing evil.* - ■

by the capitalistic press? -" ■" But, there this .coulg

our time."     Throughout the'eight pages which
the " study '*' takes up it goes into ecstasies over this
'.'great".man and would, no doubt, have continued
" in"this strain had Mr.-O'Connor, the author, or,^it
would perhaps be more correct to say the re-writer,
for no doubt such facts and hidden secrets mu?t
have been obtained from the subject of the sketch
himself, found a larger complimentary vocabulary
to enthuse with?"   So   far   as 'his   "kindliness,"
"good nature," "instructive knowledge of human
nature," etc., is concerned we will not discuss,* but
wlien it comes to telling us certain, exaggerated
facts in connection with labor and the Premier's
attitude in these matters, wo must take exception.
For instance, the article says:
"This extraordinary dominance has not   been
won by mere.force of character) an instinctive adroitness, tact and good sense have been among tho
contributory causes,-    Take, for instance, his treatment of what even'in British Columbia is a not
infrequent occurrence—namely, labor unrest.    La-
bor unrest is serious in nny country—but it is most
serious in countries where the prospdet of thc quick
return of mining draws tho strong and adventurous and sometimes unruly men of all nationalities.
British Columbia is full of groat mining camps;
and thus tho Prime Minister hns hnd to deal more
than once with situations that, beginning in a (lis-
puto about wngeH or hours of labor, or a conflict
between union and   non-union, might easily have
ilnwlnport into bloodshed. , And bloodshed "there
would have been if lho conflict between elements
so .stubborn and so resolute as the minors on the
onp side and the, mine-owners on tho other had not
all to bo submitted to thc cold, clear judgment of
tho ruler of the country."
To lull, of "bloodshed" ami "donr judgment of
the ruler of tlm country," is moro piffle, nnd cnn
only be swnllowod by Hiohc without knowledge of
local conditions, outside of this country, Mr.
O'Connor nlso refers to Ihe remarkable progress
this province hns nindu under tlio rnlorsliip of our
local Disraeli, but sjiyi. nothing <if tliu number «;f
■ unt-mploy.'d nnd other niiitlcrji affecting tlie worker,
With nil Sir HirlmTrl *n NlirewdnrsN lio hns, no
doubt, mndo a mistake in "rTorniitting" Mr. O'Connor cirailnming all the newspapers, periodicals,
journals, ete., ami sending n copy nf the uin«n>

not,happen.-.y-There wduld;be-no parly candidate,
There being no graft; it stands to reason that there
would be no'need for it. fit is only when such
conditions exist that, make it possible for party
leaders'and'office holders* to make something out of
it that Bedlam is let loose. ' During the convention
an army of policemen; firemen, doctors and nurses
were held in readiness.- This time.it was not for
the purpose of preventing free speech, or against
the ohslaughter" of "undesirable citizens." ■ Oh,
no! -Only to see that the truo American patriots
aiid citizens do not butcher each other for the glory
of office and graft. Each session began % pay-;
ing.respects ,lo each other. At. tho end of the
convention the gathering', finished up with singing that sweet and pathetic ballard, "Lead kindly
light."- The Democrats aro now wrangling over
their choice and we-presume-tho sairie tactics,as
obtained at tho Republican Convention will be
adopted.' As one paper remarks: "It needs something more than prayor to put these people whoro
thoy belong. . It needs tlio woll-directed -vote of
the working class, backed by an intelligence that
can be fooled no longer, but will insist upon economic justice being handed out to all."

Sir Thomas ShaughnesBy must havo bcen^in a
sympathetic frame of mind when ho discussed labor troubles with a reporter of a newspaper in London.    Intcivalia ho said:
"I think that in Canada wo havo rather moro advanced ideas in thc relations of employer and employed than thoy hnvo in older countries. We arc
perhaps inclined to lake a broader view-as to tho
rights of the men and tho consideration to which
I hoy are entitled.
"Wo havo a good class of men, and feel thnt thoy
nro entitled to tivavy consideration, if only as part
of the machinery that hringH success to tho,line,
1-niployoTH, in my opinion, should givo moro than n
grudging recognition to the union system, which
has como to stay. SomolimoR, after a dispute is
supposed to hnvo been settled, an employer gots
his foremnii to look out for proloxls for getting rid
of the mon who havo beon particularly active That
is not Uio way lo promote good feeling,"
As Sir Thomas well knows, any branch ,.of the
road that is well paid wns forced from his com-
pnny by sheer strength of the union. Any branch
thnt hns a weak or no union, cannot claim to havii

The labor movement of Milwaukee
Is an inspiration to the workers of
America. Its achievements make it
worthy of all admiration, and its
methods are sorely worthy of serious
study. For thirty years ft has been
building its movement After many
defeats It has at last won out by the
joint labor of two powerful organizations—the trade unions and the Socialist party. It bas esw Its fine Labor Temple where any day one may

the national convention of the
Socialist party held in Chicago in 1904,
aid: "Our idea is to bave a
movement, and this can only
be done in the following ways; not tn
carrying resolutions here and there,
bnt in getting the membership. It
only be done by a personal union j
of the Socialist party and the trade |
unions. By a personal union I mean
that the same people who are" active
in the irade unions are also active
the Socialist party, and that is tbe
_>e in my own town. If you go to
tbe Central Committee of the Social
Democratic party you will see, with a!
few exceptions, about the same faces j
that yon see in the Trades Council." j
From the preceding articles you
'ill have learned that this is esactly
the point that is made so much of by
European Socialists. Tbe working l

while it mnst use the strike

to Milwaukee. The same personal
onion between tbe two movements exists In Britain, Belgium. Denmark,
Sweden, Finland, Germany, Austria
and other countries. At tbe Socialist
■ongresses, for Instance, j-ou meet the
ame faces that you see at the trade
union conferences. In (be Parliaments
of Europe you may find many at the
chief trade union leaders, oil of whom
lieen elected by the Socialist parlies.
Nor do the Milwaukee Comrades
claim any originality. Indeed, tiney
translated and published the
speech of Angust Bebel on "Labor Unions and Political Parties,"
which advocates ideas similar tD those
held by the Milwaukee movement. It
sold for 5 cents and I wish every
working man in America conld read
tbis speech. It gives at some length
discussion of the proper relations
tbat sbauld exist between labor unions
1 political parties. Betel's position
briefly this. The trade unions
shonld Seep politics ont of tbe unions.
They should unite the workers with-
ont regard to religious, political, racial
or national differences. They must
flee from everything which tends' to
divide or dlsrnpt them. For them
nnity and solidarity are fundamental,
and nothing shonld be allowpd to interfere. But while tbe unions should
not divide on political lines, they

questions ..of taxation, woman and
child lahor, the right ot combination,
civil and penal justice, political rights
public administration, card of public
health—all these
interest to the trade unionist. Union
men are in complete agreement
these questions. They should,. therefore, in Bebel's opinion; quite regardless of party affiliation, outline their
program on these questions, and moke
their demands. In other words,. the
trade union movement should not only
make demands upon the .individual
employer, it should alsc make demands"'npon the State. It. should,
therefore have its municipal. State
national platform.
j«, this is exactly tbe method pursued in "Wisconsin. The State Fi
eration of labor, as well as tbe various
central bodies, have a political program. They.carry their demands to
the City Council and State Legislature, and press their claims witn all
their command. And
they have discovered ln Wisconsin tbe
same thing that tbe German work-
have learned, that it is tbe So
clallsts alone who can be depended
upon at all times to support the demands of labor. It is, of conrse, obvious to the thoughtful workingman
that tbe capitalist parties can never
honestly serve labor. Bryan, Hearst,
La FoUettC and Roosevelt, may all
wish to serve labor. There is a good
against their claims, yet for
nt I will not dispute it.
every Socialist knows that these
matter what their intentions
be, cannot deliver the goods. They
the old political machine
which are financed, and, therefore,
owned,"by the capitalists. In fact, aO
parties except the Socialists are i"
inated by profit makers, and no matter how radical their program may be,
they are tied hand and foot to the in-;
terests of the Capitalist class. The
radical their platform Is the
utterly ruinous it is to them, he-
while they may win the votes
of tbe workers.at any one election,
they are forced to betray them every
time when they get in power The
stealing of Socialist thunder is, there-'
fore, exactly what every Socialist
should want the other parties to prac-,
tice. It is the most dangerous thing
they can do. The votes they gain by
such methods are nothing to what
tbey lose by their ntter failure to fulfill their promises. Bismarck once
stole Socialist thunder. Well, look
it Germany.
"When South German Catholie and
non-Catholic textile workers," says
Bebel,- "petition the Beiebstag for a
',en-honr-day, and only the Socialist
repersentatives snpport these pett
tions with all thjeir might, as was done
in tbe last session of the Reichstag,
that Bays enough." Snob Is the opin-
teoel. That says enough.
actions will eternally speak |
louder than words, so every fight we
make for labor legislation tells Its
AH the Socialist pamphlets and resolutions that can be
put forward will be useless without
just.such political work. It Is ehiefly
because of the actual service which
the Socialist party of Wisconsin renders the workers that the State Federation of Labor bas commended,
without one dissenting voice, the Socialist party.
Of course, Berger has urged the
trade unions to make a rigorous
and united demand for Old Age Pensions, Workmen's Compensation and
Labor Legislation of the most advanced character. And the unions
have forced the old,parties to showdown, and in the actual fight for better conditions, the workers bf Wisconsin have learned that Socialists and
Socialists alone can be depended upon
to support every demand of the work-
The reason for this ls jiot obscure.
There is no excuse under heaven for
the existence o£ the Socialist party
except to express the demands of Labor. With its personnel made up of
union men.   with    its   organizations
dominated by the working class, with
its papers financed., by tbe working
class, whom else .could It serve
the working class? In fact, the Socialist party. Is only another word fin-
political unionism. Its sole object-is
to unite the working class and to ds
velop Its political power. - If the Socialist party did not undertake t
tbis work the trade unions would be
forced to organize their own party
