'Report"; that it is that<of Colin, .Maeleod and-not that of, Dr. Gordon. ,
'   Not onlyiB this clearly shown in the'day. if age scale/but Hkew,is9 in the
- differentials; and from tbe evasive --language used that H* does not alone
apply'to.the Frank vicinity group of mines as, has been the,general impres-
'slon but is equally applicable to all mines, 'Fornie and Michel inclusive.
. ' ■ If Dr.. Gordon's schedule were accepted^ as a majority report, then all
"those'receiving $3.00 a day would be-paid $3,30;'instead of $3.24, as per
.the operators' so-called majority report; those'formerly jmid'f 3.50 would
_get' $3.78, and.not $3.67, as the operators'- schedule has it./; w >,
. ■_ Dr. .Gordon's recommendations on pillars was 5c,to 7c per ton, whereas
7 this-Operators'""Majority Report" plainly'states 5 to 12^ cents per, ton.

reports, Gordon's, Macleod's-and Carter's.-' * . J-    ■    "'     .

variations, has been dinned Into the
ears of the inhabitants, not only of
■* the Eastern Provinces, but throughout
-the length aad breadth of the British
"Isles. - ,« ,„ '-    ,
■; There is'a reason for most things.
, and for the insistent, and persistent
widespread repetition of the above
phrase there are many reasons.. Tho
transcontinental railways of Canada
have' established publicity bureaus in
the populous centres of Britain and
are paying large staffs for their own
particular .brand of inducements, besides having from time to time a small
army of lecturers employed to hang
frills around the printed arguments
and to ilustrate by moving film and
otherwise the points dealt with. ,
\ Besides the railway companies ,(who
are also shipping companies) tliere ls
the Manufacturers' Ascsociatlon, with
.ah agent in London, Eng., and a more
or less definite connection with a host
of shipping and ticket agencies, willing
to assist the manufacturers ln -their
schemes for the grist, which it brings
' to their- own little mill.
Allied with the Manufacturers'. Association, with varying degrees of
pecuniary interest in its schemes, are
to*  be   .noted . the-^  many   so-called
' "Boards of Trade," which" are to be
fought in,.every industrial community
" —chiefly composed   of   people   who
have something to sell. *      , ,
' The literature,and circulars of these
1 *•* 1 , - ■ 1
■people -have doubtless ■ been read by
; the 'bushel by all incoming settlers,
-a'nd being generously supplied so in-
. geniously mixed  vlo  with bona fide
, issues that the stranger is left to assume  that it is  all  reliable,  or  at
least finds himself unable to analyze
,, and j classify the material.
{-; The reason for all this carefully and
, often expensively prepared emigration
clamor must be obvious to even the
most,shallow thinker.     The shipping
andi railway   companies- want   dividends.     The ticket sellers want commissions.   • The manufacturers know
that a crowded market means eventually cheaper - labor and larger profits
blissful the present state of the "captain of industry"—with his heaven in
- full view.*
A Board of Trade is a title, which
, gets mixed up with that of an Imper
7  lai government department and to the
,   "Britisher"   conveys' an   official idea
■ which is in nb particular correct,1' as
'. these boards   are   simply   what   are
' known in Britain as   :.Chambers of
",• Commerce,"   ;iThls only'needs to be
stated for the average1 Briton to,place
tho correct valuation on tho matter
published by these bodies. Newcomers
"■ ,need all kinds of goods, houses, etc.
and these people havo theso and othor
things on hand.    An Increased' population moans Increased business returns.      Llko  British  Chambers' of
Commerce, these Canadian Bourds of
Trado may bo rolled'upon to throw all
their Influence to tho Bldo of tho employing fraternity in any crisis.   Builders' Exchanges from timo to tlmo nro
very glad  to sink tliolr Identity as
■ auch, and havo thoir purpose accora-
pllBhed undor the apparently innocent
aehcmoB of BoardH of Trndo]    During
a rocont building trades dlsputo ln
Roglnn tho 'Board of Trado" of that
city contrived to flood .the-whole neighborhood with building trades mechanics from' the. old land, and this js
far from being an isolated case..  - .
It is advisable that the new*arrival
at once begin'to analyze and place'at
proper- valuation the emigration' literature which he has waded through
for several months'past.' To discount
and entirely disregard 97 per cent of
lt will' save many dlsliluslonments and
disapprovements; while the more the
new arrival will use his experience as
a worker in the old land and apply
it to conditions as he finds them upon
arrival, the better will he be able to
appreciate the advice tendered ' by
those of his own class..
The workers of Britain do not allow
thc employing classes to entirely dictate their working conditions "and
wages, or else the organization in. that
country of 2,500,000 trades unionists
stands for nothing. One of the most,
common instructions to the newcomer
is to "take the first Job that offers."
If he is prepared to do this.then he
must also be prepared to accept tho
first wages and working conditions
which offered, and as a rule such
'offers" are away below Jbe standard
of the locality, in which' the stranger
finds 'himself, and the "offer'K* is made
with the hope, that the "stranger"
does , not' know his present market
value or is now so hard up that he becomes tin "easy, mark."
, Sometimes! wages are quoted in
emigration literature in ''connection
with the amount paid in, Britainr.for
same hours and'work. It is only when
the worker goes out to purchase what
he needs that he is able to arrive at
a fair comparison. The new arrival
who has come supplied with a fair
amount of clothing, etc., does not
immediately realize the full- weight
of the burden of living, nor is-he
likely to • do so until he becomes" a
householder and a'provider for a
family. -He will be staggered,in com-'
paring prices now and again,, but if
he comes provided In addition with
a wife and family^ then it-; is - safe
to say that his period of ^disillusionment in regard to'the value of wages
will early set iii.
- In order, that the'tollers in "this
in- regard to their hours of work and
remuneration for the same.' they have,
in common'with the workers in eyery
industrial country organized them*
selves into trades unions. Thoy havo
further found that a working agreement between the members of their
craft ln'Canada and those of the samo
craft in the United States gave financial; numerical and actual Industrial
strength to craft organizations, , and
overy local trade union is therefore
connected with the international.trado
union of its craft, while preserving
local autonomy,for all.ordinary purposes, These unions are also affiliated with the Trades and Labor Con-
gross - of Canada for legislative purposes on the north sldo of tho boundary lino, that duty bolng performed
for tliolr members In tho Unitod States
by tho American Federation of Labor.
Every International unionist has a
trade union "card" which Is'rocog-
nlzod and rospocted by ovory mombor
of IiIb craft throughout tho ontlro
North American continent,
The nowly arrived wngo-oamor Is
Invited to study this quostion from
tho standpoint of solf-Into. .Bt' nnd the
interest of. the J class .to' which'he be
longs.* He ,capndt-^separate himself
and hppe to accomplish'single-handed
What powerful organizations are al!
the time ■ struggling to maintain, lie
may. accept les than his market value
and express himself as "contented,
but he is bound-to realize that whaC
, 1
he has done in that case can also
be done again, and that another new
arrival may bo "contented" to receive
less than the amount he was at first
"satisfied" with,' thus, forcing him to
again undersell his competitor.
No argument 'should bo necessary
to prove the advantage of becoming a
member of one of those organizations
which have Becured definite contracts
and conditions of labor and are maintaining the same. "All that, the average worker has to sell is his power
to toil, and ' by collectively bargaining for the sale pf that power, better
terms may be made for all the members of the craft; "■*'-■.,
,, The new arrival will soon* discover
where'his interests He; but the workers already in the field are anxious
that he should have useful Information placed in his hands at the Very
threshold of his experiences in a new
land, so that he may avoid becoming
the victim »of a "cheap skate" employer by accepting less than the regular standard of remuneration.
'Let'it be remembered that there is
a huge annual influx to this'country,
and should' the newcomer in any one
year be willing to accept less than the
existing rates,, then their own future
is1 also becoming Jeopardized by that
very fact. * The smaller the' remuneration the less able will the worker
be not.only to cope with a gradually
increasing cost of Hying, but to maintain even * the low standard which
they might be-willing 'for a time" to
accept. * *        1
That-these succeeding _ waves of
population „wiH ultimately cheapen
labor' in" the competition .for Jobs is
the unconcealed wish of the employing corporations and is the outstanding reason for all emigration activity.
The matter- rests with the individual.. He may start in right by interviewing the representative of his craft
In whatever city he" .finds himself,
Information; or he may choose to plow
the "lone furrow" to his own detriment
and that of others.       '  1
'Nothing,-is more calculated to'inspire confidence than to have the privilege of > meeting every one or two
weeks with members of the same craft
to discuss matters of mutual concern.
Instead of being Isolated ln the struggle for existence he becomes a unit
ln an organization with common alms
—a brotherhood whoso Interests are
Identical, . If such organizations .have
been found necessary In the , older
lands, how muci^ more necessary aro

come to pass in Germany is' at least
possible in America.    *      ' '   ■'
At the first reichstag elections —
1871.— the Social-Democracy received
120,000 votes and ten years later
though restrained by, the "Socialist
laws,'" it nevertheless: counte4 '312,-
000 adherents. With'the'cessation of
governmental checks the party waxed
strong, and*In 1890 it polled* a total
of one arid one half million votes. In
1898,' the two million mark was reached, followed by three millions in 1903.'
At the *. last * national election "Die
Social-Democratie" registered 2,260,000
votes, and,today even their enemies
are willing .to concede that in the-impending January election they will
come close to, four million votes, making tbem by far the strongest party
in the1 fatherland! The Socialists'
themselves are more confident and
look for 'higher figures. They base
their estimates* on the fact that' in
the last five'' years, 1906 to 1911,' the
number of their organized party members has almost, doubled, having'risen
from 384,000 to, 720,000. Never has
their agitation,been more ,-vigorous
than to-day,'and if,local elections'1 are
any forecast of the coming national
struggle the Social Democracy is fully Justified injts hopes.' It will be' of
interest'to.stuiiy this development of
power in''detail, for in studying the1
various factors, the resultant becomes
-plain-and'tangible:—'• r— *—
The'finances—-always- the sinews of
war—of .the party are most flourishing
as Is evidenced by, the fact that the
party income ,for the.last year (July
1909-1910) was no ■> less than 93^,409
marks." To this amount their leading,
organ. Der Vorwaerts, contributed its
annual profit* of 113,000 ,marks.
. "The manner, ln^which the 300,000
marks were used for agitation purposes * gives "a striking confirmation
that the children,of this world are
wiser in their'generation than the
children of* light. '.'The. annual report
of 1909-10 states that 29,826 members
wero added and 13,814 public meotings
wero, hold; that 23,102,440 tracts
gratuitously spread "the glad tldlngB
of the future," and that calendars and
pamphlets were .' distributed to the
number of 2,545,811. Thus, as an example, of their propaganda, tho farmers received an "agitation leaflet" in
tho form of a personal lottor, ln which
tho city comrados lovingly nddresso'd
thoir country cousins as "Dear Relatives." ,
But by far tho most potent agitator for Gorman Socialism Is tho press,
ond horo a veritable campaign ■ of
printers' Ink comes into view. In 1909
tho party conjtrollod sovonty*olght
daillos, Issued from fifty-seven of thoir
own establishments, and tbOBO papors
counted 1,100,080 BUbsorlbers — just
doublo tho amount glvon for 1004—
only six years boforo, Der Vorwaots,
tho loading party organ, dally sends
forth 140,000 coplos, giving It rank
with tho chief newspapers of tbo empire, Anothor lnfluontlnl journnl Is

tho fact thnt In 1007 thoso unions bad

to got a clear concept of tho magnitude and Intensity of this pross propaganda; It must bo soon, especially
111 Uiu iurge industrial centres, to bo
fully realised.
Perhaps/ tho most fearful feature of
Oeiiiiiiii Socialism Is' tlio nstoundlngly
rapid und almost moteorlc growth of
111* I'liiuenbowegiitig—-Its female propaganda, Slnco thb first conference of
Soclnl-nomocratlq women ln Mains,
1900, It has advanced with leaps and
bounds. Tho Gorman fomalo Socialists are vorltable amnions ln tho
e.nwte. • '
In 1900 02,000 women wore mem-
born of the party organization; cuo
year later they numbered 20,000 more,
and today they loudly claim to have a
hundred thoimnnd members,

Nor have the 'Socialists been unmindful of'the aphorism,,""WhoWer
has the youth has the. future." •' Their
Jugendbewegung Is simply amazing in
Its extent and variety; no means nre
left untried Iri.the* effort to1'capture
the coming generation*. Beginning'in
1904 with,societies' and Journals nominally Indifferent,' they were; gradually developed a' propaganda as insinuating ''as it.' Ib ' effective. -**' This', propaganda includes the youth of both soxes
and" Its influence finds its' way Into
the'remotest country^ school/ ' *
' But beneficent" Socialism is not'content to supply the mind of youth with
nourishment; the-body, too,.muat,receive its' attention, and hence sports
arid entertainment play an'important-
part ,l,ln. the winning of the younger
generation to the cause.* Clubhouses
have been establishes**in" 105 places,
70 of which are" provided with free
i>   . .        ' 1
libraries and, —"-a point to be noted
-■-■-these clubhouses are open to both
sexes, .certain.equality . with a vengeance. "•*- In connection with this "uplifting  of  the. youth   the annual report for 1910 • chronicles 1,434-lectures
arid entertainments, 38 courses of 'instruction; 259 theatricals, 215 visits to'
museums,, 1,466 outings,  etc. - Here
too, printers' -.Ink is not spared.- ',   , ,
,'*' German '--Socialism,. though checked
by the'(might, of monarchy" and'an opposition" ministry, has not worked/altogether In vain in its efforts to'iejze
the reins of government. * Thanks'to
class "elections ' and"' other .""political
agencies,' its representation in'parliament is in no proportion-to its po-*
clalists ' with 'wrath, and. ,they7are
promising themselves' an ultimate victory and ari awful day of .reckoning.
Nevertheless, /in 1909, "they held ''in
nineteen of the provinces* hearljrtwo
hundred seats in the respective' diets,.
while in", the various city arid town
councils they were represented l*y no
less (than 7,533 memberB—often a ('majority — and'these,, members have
been Increased*by the last elections..,
This is German Socialism' In tho
year'of grace,' 1911. 'It'is a giant octopus, extending its feelers into'overy
corner of the empire, to bq.seen with
tho naked eye or deciphered Hi tho
columns of unemotional statistics. It
has grown thus In forty years, in prosperous times-and,In a land economically tho best suited ,on tho continent, and ataong a' peoplo hitherto
rogardod for tho lnlolllgonuce and'con-

■ I have made' 'it' evident, I think,

,1; "Ain't you got'a young lady, then?"
If one'should;say to me; "Have
you a prosperous.future before you?"
I naturally should reply that I didn't
know." And. women. are certainly not
moro stable than, destiny. But yet.
when a fat old lady at a flower and
seed7stall asks' me whether I ain't
got!a;young,lady. Lam expected, by
insane convention, to offer a definite
reply.,. Pah! I ignored the fat old
lady's question!
."Ain't you got a young lady, then,
ole dear?", she said again.,     -'    *,
'Tuttingl young ladies entirely out
ofthe'".question," replied your servant, " you may take it as certain
that -1 "do riot • want these daffodils.
.What Tasked for-was a couple of dozen hollyhock roots."
.'.'It's, the "same to me, ye know,
young mail," pursued my stall holder,
"whether you "got a donah or whether

There was an effrontery in this
proposition which aroused my indignation. - .''Here Is a woman,'' thought
I, - -"so* .vitiated by£the commercial
spirit that* she does not hesitate to
seek tor profit In the grief of a grandson."',^,       "•• i-,
"I'Jdon.t want' your beastly daffodils," Tsaid to her.
"Then what you rubbin* yer greasy

" 'Erbert looked toward his aunt. His
object was -to obtain a view of the interloper, who stood elsewhere.

beheld with joy an intimate .friend.

as of compassionate amusement. "You

exclaimed. And then, raising her voice

Here are somejlefinitions that are riot found in
the dictionary, but will/ we think be\equally; clear

f We, do not even have to go out of Canada for au

and compare thein with those in the West and when

When representatives of an organization are asking for an increase in the wage scale we find that
it is divided'-lnto zones, for instance, railroad * eni*

affected accordingly. "Of course,' this does not
apply Xo dividends, they are the same, whether the

The .wage earner, speaking generally, * receives
for. his labors practically what it costs to keep

-The patriotic (!) buncombe about the Americans
gathering the people .of Canada under their- wing
does not affright the .working class, because even
now large volumes of capital from the U. S. are
invested in this country. Take the. lumber industry as an. example and we find that Weyerhauser
and hip 'associates, are great holders' of B. C. timber:

whom lie buys perchanced to be born.
'* Such being the/case with one.man, and it is quite

Statistics will be brought forward by each party
to provo the' truth' of their contentions, but after
all has been uttered on the'subject neither ono nor
the other representative, whether Libral,or Consor-
vativo, will have anything to,offer that will nid the
producing class in advancing one stop henrer tho
"acquisition of the full social value of tlieir product
and nothing less than this will over satisfy us. To
reach this consummation we must, go through the
intervening stnges, eaoh succeeding one proving to
an ovor increasing number that the solution to the
problem, lies not in Free Trade, Protection, Reciprocity or nny of the quack nostrums advocated by the
owning clnss, but in thc determination by those
who do tho useful work of tho world owning themselves .and ns thoy cannot do so, so long as tho
means of production, and destruction are privately

It is one of tie most definitely ascertained facts yptt politico-economic
science that'1 wages .are determined by
the cost ofi living... *
- One/needs' but cast a briejf glance
around the world to.see that the,"cost
of living "and wages in every, country
are nicely, and apparently automatically adjusted -to: each other.    .
In", Alaska'a-man earns ten dollars
a day .and pay." fabulous prices for
food and lodging."* In China a worker gets four' cents a day and lives on
a handful of rice;-;- * ' -

The:obvious.and 'unanswerable reason, why. a workingman receives and
must, receive tlio, full' cost of living
in his wages Is that*there ls no'other
possible contributory source,
He must hao it ,in his wages In order
to work, and he must , work or his

Jt has long been customary 'to explain, thls'differonco by assorting that

have largo steaks, a. woman can live
on dry tonst and. ten,    .
It was even argued "that women's
clothes cost less, though, probably
nobody ovor really believed It.
Tlio answer must be sought elsewhere. And when tho real nnswor
Is found It constitutes a damning In-

A political'party'is-simply,, tha ex-
pression — the political, expression —
of economic conditions
Tho economic conditions of the work
ing class are. entirely ^different, from
tho economic conditions of the middle
class, or from the economic conditions
of- the capitallst^class. ,
.. The trade unions are the expression
of ttie working, class on the economic
.field. ■ .. ■ ;.■_;_,'-.*-\, ;
.'-''Under,no clrcuraatahces'*would..we
accept a member, of the middle clans
r-r of tlie'merchant'and professional
class ~ into pur-.ttade,unions'. Tinder
no circumstances':* would we accept a
manufacturer, ,'a banker,-, or. ahy 'other
member 'of the Sa"plt?ilist class into our
trades unions.* *7We would' not do this
because the.'trades unions are class organizations.,. They were founded for.
the purpose of upholding the standard
of,;- living -and Improving the working
conditions of the laboring class. - -
■" The trades unions are the expression of the .CLASS'STRUGGLES   .n
the economic field.
y, ■' -i.f :.    ..■■*■.# V- • •   , -.'.,
Now it is clear'to'see that tbe political parties are expressions of classes'in the political "field. _-•',.,
-The Republican party represents the
capitalist class and a small part of
the middle class. -   ' „ '
The Democratic party used to .represent a" large j part of -the middle
class and a small,part of the" capitalist's. 7Todayt.it represents these only
in the-South.-,. In-^he North it represents nobody in. particular, except; a
lot ofv political thieves, swindling con
tractors and.'their heelers.  ■ "\
Neither of "these .two parties ever represented,the working class.
Abbut. twenty-five/-years ago some
of ■ the. - Republican politicians •. for - a
"wliil9-i*RidTci*^iDi;"oRP^repreBent— ifand
pointed "to the Wgh tariff. '■ But ,nbw
there is. not a workingman In the country, outside of- a few labor misleaders
In Pennsylvania, who believes, thaca
high tariff helps;..anybody except the
manufactui*ers and, their, respectlvo industries.' ***."' "• -fi' ■• c ■   ,-'    ;■ ,  ■"
,, We "know that * whilo the .manufacturers' products are protected. — the'
workingmen are not.    , *.
We all know that In these very p^o
tecfed .industries 1 the !x manufacturers
haie displaced1 the .'American laborers
. By "Krltlk."
ers so that .the foxes, could forbid the
geese to "use. their wings to fly away
■ But I will say that of all the workingmen of the civilized world only
the American workingmen'show*less
reasoh;-ttia*-T geese and behave more
stupidly "than, sheep..!
In the old world and in the newest
world workingmen have learned the
lesson.      * *" -
In * England, Germany, France, Holland and Italy the'working class selects its, own representatives in ttie
political field as it does in the economic field. »It took the hard-headed
Englishmen a long time to learn*the
lesson, but finally they learned it..
As for the newest world, Australia,
they learned the lesson' there much
sooner. The laboring claBS there ,is
of more account1 than anywhere else
in the world.
. The working class exerts a tremendous political power in England, Germany, France, In the Scandinavian
countries, and even in Italy.
, in England,the awakening came as a
result of judicial Injunctions. But
they did not have the one-hundredtti
part of the of the injunctions we have
had in'the'past ten'yearo.; 5And we
are'still sleeping.    - *'    *' '

Wo know that there is not a country
01? the' face of the globe where the
working class has less power—economically, politically, or any other way
—than in America;'   ', ,
Gompers and,the other.--Civic Fede-
ratlonigts , call themselves leaders.
When do they lesid? And where do
they lead?        ,  '     ' °    '
The individual unions, like the Printers' Unions and some of the building
trades, have accomplished something.
As a Socialist**! am proud of the fight
of .he I. T. U. for the eight-hour day.
It was the greatest" thing ever done
by a trades union on' the economic
field.     /-•*''.-.,•

Disappoint the master class at last!

Cod Liver Oil With

A Triumph for Chun-deal fleianct* iuul

OU front thc liver of the cod-fish hat

1 Por a long time it has been the general
opinion that the medicinal value of Cod
tlvfr Oil was thc granny, oily part itself
•—its only drawback being the unpalatable, fishy taste of the oil.
Prom the first experts have been trying to And means to make it more palatable. They used to "cut" it with
■whiskey—take it in wine—flavor it with
lemon juice—anythinfj to get away from
that abominable fishy tnstc and smell.
Lots of pennle still take it In Hmul-
sion form, which is nothing more than
"churned" oil—broken up—but still
greasy, oily and a strain on the digestion.
Doctors used to think it was the nil
itself that built up the Hvsteni—tliey
were slow to find out that tlie oil was a
distinct drawback to the medicinal principles contained in it.
Crude oil is quite indigestible, and
will, In time, put the strongest stomach
out of order,
A way has now been discovered to do
away with the grease and the smell, and
yet retain all the medicinal properties
of the liver. This ia done bv removing
the fresh oil from the new livers.   The

. As .'the-result of one week's work
of 5-V&'days .ending Tuesday, May 2nd,
a new- world's, record for a week's
turning of coal, has been made by
raising to the surface 25,008 tons of
coal: This* gives nn average' turning
bf over 4.557 tons oach day, 620 tons
per hour, or over 10 tons per mlnuto
—a remarkable achievement.
The Mansfield Colllory, dr Crown

holds' the world's record for a day
(single shift) a week, a month, arid
a year, Tho colliery can also fortunately! take credit to Itsolf ln the
fact that during Iho yoar 1910 not

From the beginning of the present
struggle we ha"\.e heard rumors of the
activity of the two priests, Michela
(of Fernie), and Meissner (of Michel,
undoubtedly actuated by material reasons urged upon the men what course to
pursue. ~ We halve had nothing to say
through 'the columns of this paper,
thinking it advisable to allow matters
to run their course, but'when it was
reported that the men at Corbin had
voted to go back td work laifeely
through the instrumentality,of Father
Meissner,' to prevent the possibility of
any misrepresentation, he was interviewed upon his return to Michel, and
this is in'substance the conversation
that ensued:     '7,
Interviewer: There are reports current that you have been instrumental
in getting the men at Corbin to go
back to work and,I have come to ask
of you the courtesy of a reply so that
if not correct it may be contradicted,
and if, correct duly verified?
Father Meissner: Yes; I went to
Corbin and after Mr. Gus Smith had
spoken to the men I translated his "remarks to the Slavonians and advised
them to accept the conditions offered.
A vote was taken and they voted m
the majority to go back to 'work.
Interviewer: - Then you ,. consider
that this was the right course to,pursue?   lv ' *      *   "-.     "'
Father Meissner. Yes; I do, and I
accept, full responsibility for what I
did.      - ' y '•

Workers Warned "Act Not.; Meant for
Their plant—Many Employes Hit-
Firm .Eager' to Substitute" a Fake
"Mutual  Agreement Clause."  "
;. EUZABETH,"n.;J. — ;The Singer
Manufacturing Company, which has'd
large plant here,.has, served notices
uponuthelr several thousand employes
that" the Employers',* Liability - Law,
passed by the New Jersey Legislature
and, signed by' the'Governor April '4'
1911,-is not for It to comply*-with. , It
further states that _t" does. not" mean
to be bound by any such law.
Recently when!1 the employes were
paid off* a. slip of paper was" forced
upon each man as he .drew his pay. ,
The, notice was printed and read:
.  Employe of the Singer Manufac-
* .turing Company and each and every
employe of said company.
"Written .notice  is hereby given,
and  this   statement  in   writing  Is
, made, pursuant to the provisions^
. the second section of an act of th'o
Legislature  of  the-. State  of  New
Jersey, entitled An act prescribing
„  the liability of an employer to nialce
compensation for injuries received
by an employe in the course of employment, .establishing  an elective
schedule of compensation,  and-regulating procedure for the' determination of liability and compensation
thereunder, approved April 4,' 1911,
that * the  undersigned  company,' a
,corporation of .the said State and
,your employer, does, not accept.) the
terms of said section of said act;
' arid its contract of hiring-wlth .you
is made upon the express statement
that the provisions of section 2 of
- said act shall not, and are not intended to apply to such hiring, and
it  does "not',Intend  to  be  bound

Substitute an "Agreement."
The workers who refused to accept'this notice were told to draw
their full* pay. and quit." That the
Singer' company means to .totally'ignore the act of .^Legislature, and to
substitute in _its place *- a "Mutual
Agreement" Clause"'is evidenced by
the fact that inany were" told to be
prepared to' sign such an "agreement"
when they returned to work.
This ."'agreement" is nothing short
of a joke',' and its only significance Is
that tho.men will in no wise be able
to. collect damages from the company
8hould,*,they sustain injuries while
working in the 'plant. '
tlsed so often and with' such bitter
effect upon the workers that eriiployes
of the-Singer, company have about refused'to* "sign up."'   , '""
"The Issue," a Socialist newspaper-
herb, has "warned the' rrien of the'
necessity to"'re-fuse such a pact. The
paper appeals to 'all workers in' the
Singer' plant 'not to sign away their
manhood for a ruess of pottage.'-' •
Effective Union Needed'..'..
If one or two riien refuse to Blgh
this) pact * It will have no effect, as
these "Insurgents" would 'simply be
discharged * by the company. If a.
thousand men refuse to sign It, H
will havo an effect, but If all tho
workers re/use tb sign, the men will
win. l
Too much stress cannot bo laid upon tho propor action1 tho workers uf
this plant should tnko at this time;
If tho coriipany succeed In putting
this over, thereby Ignoring tho law,
they will havo tho men JuBf whoro
thoy want thom.
What is needed tho most of all
among tho mon of this plant is an
offectlvo union, according to" "Tho
Issuo." It Ib pointed but hy "Tho Issuo" that a striko ot this tlmo would
bo useless, In that it would entail
noodloss suffering on tho part of women and children,
But the men must organize,
Above all they must refuse to sign
an Agreement Clause,
