. Dear Sir,—In order to correct any
mistaken notions tbat tho public may
have regarding the recent action of
the Teamsters' Union, re a'dispute in
which several Italians are concerned,
we want to say first, last and all the
time that we make no exception to any
man because of race, creed,, or color.
It. is a man's qualifications as-a" workman that governs us in-oiir-actions.
We have, representatives of,all nationalities in our organization. -

the- office .-.of the structural iron

The theory ' of ■-'many .persons is
that McNamara was denied his iaw

•    the fire  of uncontrolled enthusiasm- burned
brightly and our mind, indoctrinated with the the-

have been rank heresy to. question, conjured up visions of wealth to be had by'all practising those truly
e/ capitalistic virtues of sobriety, thrift and industry.'
we pondered deeply over-the failures that not,wo
alone,* but likewise thousands'of others succeeded in
obtaining with unremitting regularity, and although
our long cherished ideals died hard, finally faith in
the efficacy of the application "of the aforemention-
,'   ed stereotyped formula was rudely shattered and
; the realization forced upon us that the acquisition of
riches' individualistically'iw'equally unattainable, as
- the transmutation of the baser metals into the more
precious ones.   '   7 :" '"'"*""'„ , -    -.    . .

,.   Probably every school boy has puzzled over the
, .problem of how much it will cost to shoe a horse
when the charge for the-first nail is one cent,'.then
double the price of each succeeding nail, and when
-.the price of the 32nd nail is arrived at the expression
quite .frequently is heard, "Gee! I wish Iwas a
blacksmith and get such a sum for shoeing a horse

To those1 who have' regardedfthis ajs'tho most
striking instance of acquiring wealth would say":
Discard it as an obsoletism as we now present for
your careful consideration a more up-to-date- plan
that is so liberal in its calculations that instead, of
beginning with a cent as a point of departure employs dollars, and- its minimum figure   7.    ' We
. marvel greatly that tho fertile brain "responsible,
for this stupendous money-making schomo did not
have it doubly clinched by copyright and letters
patent in evory civilized countrywide, the sun.
This oversight may be excused on tho pica that
vory rarely aro men of creative genius of a practical
turn of mind, or mayhap, with heart bubbling over
with altruism (a vory serious malady whon it bo-
comes chronic) determined to bequeath this,child
of his waking hours to posterity in order to controvert tho long established cynicism that all men
aro selfish.    Hero is tho modus operandi:
Build a shack worth say $100; rent it for $7 a
month; then servo a notico upon tho occupant that
the, next month will bo $14, the following'month
$28, then $5ij, nnd each'succeeding month double
its predecessor; continue this process for flvo years
ond we arc satisfied thut Morgan, Roekofollor,
HntliHcliild nnd a host of others in combination will
be so far diHtiint compimitivcly as to appronch a
vanishing point.

436 .Confederation Life Building, Toronto, containing the report of Judge Robson on "Segregation or

meeting in Winnipeg upon the social evil and the
actions of the'police connected therewith.    '.".

-is nothing startling in this* as like conditions prevail
in practically, every .city-ou this continent; and the

thereof being impossible, indifference to its existence characterizes the "attitude,.of the majority of
citizens.   Individuals of,the Shearer type, with their

crusades, /we would urge that once they have re-
'ec-'gnized' a disease" instead"; of*, ^combatting effects
they follow the example of the medicabpractitioner-
and investigate causes, then they wi-Vafter a com-

-.v-Where do the'vast majority of these unfortunate
•women come from?    The'Working class, but in
as a much as this class predominates. the question
may'be therefore answered that there.is nothing especially surprising about, this.  " Let us proceed.
What is the predominating'eausef.'And it readily
develops that it is economic.   , A comfortless home
may account fpr.some, an inadequate wage for oth-
ers, a longing fpr a homo "and the too-ready acceptance of'the promise of an oily-tongued scoundrel
bo tho explanation given, but in practically every in.
stance either directly or indirectly, an economic ex-
planation will bo forthcoming.,  No moro damning
proof of the decadence of capitalism can bo offered
than the development and increase of this scourge
of present day, society to which the mass of the
public havo become so accustomed as to regard it as
a necessary and an incurable evil.
For thousands of years wo have been taught that
innate depravity is tho source and acted accordingly
until the futility of effort in this direction has
forccdupon many thc conviction that wo must look
elsewhere for a solution. Tho two great factors arc
Ignorance and Poverty, and theso Siamese twins
must first bo conquered beforo this as well as the
many existing evils cnn be eliminated.
Tgnorai.ee is not only found among tho poor, lmt
also is rampant nmong those who flatter themselves

*     , THE  HIGHWAYMEN j'*'. ^
By  W.  R.  W..  in   the   International
.7      . Socialist'.. ,' * •'>   ,-•
A bandsof highwaymen once-practiced their -profession- near -a great
city.     ""', "*-,.',   • --    ' *    ,
'They were very, successful; for    a
few years and ■ amassed - considerable
"booty; ' Tiy    'T™*5       *
They ha'd their points" "of" '.lonor,
one of which was that they would
never rob a poor ni'an; so they at-'
tacked and robbed only the rich ineii
who traveled their way;.
■After a tinje the rich travellers
raised a great, '.outcry against the robbers and the government sent armed
,men to. protect tlie travellers, ' *
■ The .rich men and the police gave
tho robbers a very bad time; capturing some, shooting otherft and generally making the hiislness unprofitable.      ■ .'
The robbers held'a ,meeting to discuss the position pnd tile chairman
of directors, ln submitting the nn-,
iiual report and balance sheet," concluded by saying that", the ordinary
form of robbery of tho rich had bocomo very dangerous nml unprofitable, and it hnd become necessary' to
devise some olhor way of carrying on
tho  affairs  of  the  company. ,,
Various selii-uies ■ woro , proposed
and rejected ns either InnilenunLe oi'
cutive session, to show cause why she
should-not be dismissed. '-"She .had
said; "A saloonkeeper of good character Is just as respectable as a banker."
This "shocked" the-leaders of the W.
C. T. U. and tbey-demanded--her dismissal. . ■,„ -..,."' '■
• Jliss -Reed Is right, .'
The snloonkee'por, banker, grocer and
manufacturer are jn business for profit. That is thp main and, generally"
speaking, tho only purpose of business.
The effect of the'.business upon the
public'Is not considered, This is evident in every day life.. Xo argument
Is necessary,* •
Tho vital defect. In the' capitalistic
system Is the separation between private good and'public welfare.
It Is because mon oan gain wonlth
privately, nt tho expanse of the public
nnd to tho' harm of. their follow men
that capitalism stands condemned. It
Is profit thnt drawn men Into trndo nnd

A French invention for. preventing

bulletin Issued by the International
Institute of Agriculture. , It takes the
form of rockets, or "hall-dispelling"

varying from 1,300 to 1,600 feet break
up the hail'clouds. Eighty firing stations have been set' up for the protection of 59,000, acres of rich land at

'..The., 250 heirs, of'a man called Jo-
hann Klip, who was born in' 1719, met'
together at Relkhelmf in the' Taunus,
in. curious circumstances. Their ancestors died in Holland, leaving a huge
fortune to'be divided amongst his
heirs a hundred years after death. He
directed that until that period had expired the.interest on the capital should
be, devoted, to a -Dutch charity. -* The
capital amounts to the huge sum ot
$40,000,000,*arid the claimants elected
at this "meeting .a committee to take
steps to secure tho property. It is curious that', although In 1860 a hundred
years had passed since the death of
Johann. Klip," nobody, had been at the
with p'alnB to investigate the matter.
THE - CALL  -^
"to^emigrate^Ee"_ocIe!y has .been de-
luged .with'replies from those anxious
to improve their condition in another
country;- and it has 'been decided'to
form an Empire" Emigration society for
the purpose of aiding those who are
found, to meet* with the approval of
the board." *
According- to the belief of those in
connection-with this undertaking .we'
read-that 'In. Western Canada^there are
openings for bakers,' bankers,- barbers,
blacksmiths, box-makers, butchers, cobblers, dressmakers, dentists and oven
doctors.". -
. "To open an nccount with us each
depositor,.must ln the first-Instance
pay;n minimum sum of £1, which wili
be placed to his credit, and each, subsequent paymont must not bo less than

"When Mr. Lowls was elected, it

That night lie'had'a dream.     He'
dreamt that he was climbing a high   ,
mountain, and the way that'led'to'the
summit was narrow and, broken.'Every'
few minutes he had to stop and rest,
while once the earth gave way under
his feet, and he only just saved him- '■
self from being precipitated to' the hot-
torn.   It commenced' to get dark, and ' -
he,lost the track altogether.     Alir.ost
hopelessly ho stumbled on till he was
exhausted.     There was nothing e'.se
but td Ilo down where bd was, and wait
for the. morning.   How  long he had
lain he could not tell, when ho saw
a light approaching.     It drew nearer.
He.started to his' feet and shouted. "All'
.right," same 'the answer.     Then ho
saw that the flight was being, carried
by a man of medium, height, with a
strong resolute face and. a* gait that
had    in   it   no   -trace of weariness,
"I-ost?" said the'stranger.     '*Vcs," he
replied. v "Whereto you wish to go
to?' ,,"I'"started,* il'seems.such a long
time since to climb to the top of the -
mountain, but I missed my way." "You   "
wish to reach the summit;    do you
know-how far lt,ts?"    "Not far,' surely.",    "Far!     Do you know how 'oni?
you have climbed?"   "Three,' four^. 'perhaps; five hours, I am.not sure." "You.  •*

looked at the stranger, intently.    "Sir,  -

The .charity organization of New

lt cost the city over four hundred
thousand dollars to "assist' the society
ln doing it ,    ,,    '
Similar conditions exist, in every
city, where these" humbugs ply their
trade. , 7 ,.-
Out of every four dollars contributed
to sweet charity about one,dollar, en
the-average, reaches tlie victims of
capitalism.- The rest of the money
is paid in salaries and maintaining expensive offices.
Let ub take the quarterly report ot a
local charity organization issued some
time ago, and see what proportion* of
the money given for, charity purposes
reaches tha pockets of the poor. Tho
report follows:  " - *

Back, far back in the days,of Julius
Caesar and the all-conquering mignt of
Rome,.a savage yet,astonishingly ef-'
fective method of discipline existed
among tho Roman legions. In theory,
no legion ever,was permitted to acknowledge defeat Whatever, the
odde, that legion -must fight on and
on till exterminated or victorious. Such
a dishonor 'as flight was unthinkable.
Such £ degradation as surrender,' not
even to be conceived of.
•--Now,, should it by any possibility
happen that a legion, forgetting Roman
traditions, and outmassed by hordes' of
barbarians,^ chance to turn and flee,
-what iresiilted ? Was'"tlie. legion: piin-
