CUMBERLAND, B. C., July 23.—
The odlons. record of the Canadian
Collieries (Dunsmuir),, Ltd., of - Vancouver Island, is too well known for
any recital, of it tobe necessary, here.
The successors of the Dunsmuir crowd
are. the, Mackenzie and-Mann people,
and from the' following, it is evident
that they intend to keep up the,unsavory reputation of-their, predecessors. '.  -
On May 23-Jast, a miner named ,WiI.
Ham Logan was killed in No. 5 mine,'
Cumberland, B? C, by-a fall-of rock.
The verdict of the jury at the Inquest
was' "accidentardeata?"
.He left-behind'him-a .widow about
30 years of "age, a girl about ^years'
and'a boy-of.6 years.  ;
. Mrs.'Logap, since]the death of her
husband,-' is .without  means of support, and with the .object' of ^securing
some compensation for the loss' of her
husband, she went to the company's
office in - Cumberland and, was there
received by: Mr.*-I_ockhar_,' the local
superintendent, and .Mr. J. W Clinton,
the cashier. -These two"officials, who
must do, their utmost to keep down
expenses in order -toehold their jobs,
would not consent to a representative
of the, Miners1 Union* being present
with. Mrs. Logan   at , the   interview.
They told her that- she had no.claim
upon' them whatever/, but that' they
would let. her occupy   a.. four-room
house in the village bf Cumberland,
rent free, so that she could, sublet to
boarders, that _ portion of. thb house
which _.he did riot need for the accommodation bf herself and family    ..The
commodious nature , of   their   offer
would he more fitting?for the accom-
ffiQdation"of~tneir70wn~"stoo._T5r7!en7
erosity than for? boarders"? ?y     .   ,
•  However, during-the course of the
Interview, these officials    were    informed by Mrs. Logah?that the local
doctor.had told her, she "must go,, as
early as possible to the Old Country
in order ^that she might be operated-
upon hy. a skilled surgeon.   Then our
friends were carried away by a flood
of charitable feeling, and in the momentary weakness of'their sympathy
they .offered to pay for her a third-
class, fare, and .that of her children
to the Old Country. ,. They also said
they would make hereon allpwance
until sho had recovered.'', At tho same
tlmo they thoughtfully   omitted   to
stato any amount or to offer any guarantee that thoy would pay anything,'
' Haying thus opened the floodgates
of Charity thoy recommended hor to
go home and think about it and call
again tho noxt day.
,' Meanwhilo, the officials of   District
28, United Mlno Workors of Amorica,
of which William Logan was a mom.
bor,' wore cnrofully following tho at-
tompt to forco this   poor   widow' to
sign away hor legal right to compensation, nnd on'tholr ndvlco, Mrs. Logan   has   refused   to   accept,   tho
wretched offov, mndo to,,hor by tho
compnny, ,!'r   ■ [
At tho final Interview tho officials
told her that tho U. M. W. of A. hnd

FRUIT GROWERS PLEASED
, - ELKO, Bi C, July 24.—A daily mall'
service for Elko,has-now been put iri
operation by the , Great, Northern in
competition with "a similar-service of
the C. P.* R. in effect for some time
past. This move of the Great North.
era is regarded, as-a timely recognition of the increasing Importance of
the district as a production and distributing centre for a wide extent of
territory. - Situated as it is within
18 miles of-Fernie, and only 155 miles
west of Lethbridge, besides.being in
the heart of a rich fruit growing and
mining' region, Elko has recently attracted widespread atentlon on the
part of capitalists and investors, who
have been chiefly impressed with pre.
sent rapid increase in values through;
out the district. - - Elko fruit growers
express - special satisfaction with the
move of the railway officials. Fruit
farming arid- market gardening have
been greatly stimulated , in recent
weeks by the arrival of a large number of fruit growers, from West Kootenay "and the United States. The fact
that "the, district'is-served by three
lines of railway, is proving a strong
drawing card; while it.is also pointed
out-that'the Elko fruit growing dis.
trict, is- in, closer • proximity- to the
best, Alberta markets than any of the
other'..producing districts of British
Columbia.  .    ' -

of the victims were married and had
large families.
The men whq_.escaped were forced'

from their waists to their necks. The'
majority were knocked down by the
timbers sent down the mlne^with great
velocity In the raging current.

<_! '
THE  PANAMA  CANAL
AND THE COAL TRADE
.. There is considerable speculation us
to what effect, if any, the opening of
the Panama Canal will have upon .our
coal industry. That the productive
capacity of our coal mines far exceeds
the., consumption, is too well known to
require discussion here, arid it is the
opinion of many of those well inform,
ed on the situation that the opening
* of the canal will be a'large"contributing factor, toward providing a market
for this excess-iiroduction.*
It is certainly reasonable to believe
that the development of our merchant
marine would materially Increase our
foreign coal trade, and undoubtedly-
the opening of the canal will witness
a substantial Increase, in this service,
not only as regards the.foreign trade,
but the coastwise as well.
It- is almost -impossible to conceive
the enormous changes in established
channel of traffic, which must necessarily follow the, opening of the
canal. These changes can only be
toward the United States, or closely
contiguous territories, and will present unlimited opportunities for establishing coaling stations to market, our
product.
'" The United States is now supplying
about nine million long tons per an.
num for' bunkerage purposes, while
Great Britain is furnishing about 20
million to vessels Pin the foreign trade
and 2% million to those in the coastwise trade. Thus the two greatest
coal- producing countries of the world
are supplying' over , 30 million tons
"directly for bunkering. Since we are
by far the largest producer in the
world',"and with our position strengthened by an intimate connection
with this new sea highway,,it seems
hut natural that we should supply
the greater proportion. of this tonnage "The opportunity afforded the
producing companies for entering into
competition for this trade ' will ho'
doubt be eagerly grasped, but in do.
ing so, they should not lose sight of
the possibility of developing coaling
stations as before mentioned.    " •
To what extent the coastwise trade
will be "developed by the' opening of
the canal is still in some doubt,' but
close students of economic conditions
are agreed that the changes which
will be effected in the present transportation routes will be enormous. In
fact, it is believed that these changes
may be sor great that they will make
serious Inroads on the business of the
transcontinental railroads. A further probable change in 'traffic conditions will be that on inland waterways
especially those emptying directly into
the ocean, as the development of the
coastwise trade will materially stimulate traffic on these natural highways.
Thus the Mississippi River, even at
the present time an important factor
in the transportation of coal, will'
with the advent of this new,, trade,
probably double or treble,its present
tonnage.
The opening of the canal will doubt.*
less find many coaling stations established on both the. Atlantic and
Pacific Coasts, convenient for coaling
vessels in these trades. . Care must
be exercised in the selection of, the
location of .these stations to insure that
they not only -be placed at the, most
convenient points for the vessels requiring them, but most advantageously, to the producing fields' as .well.—

The'question of Republics' and Monarchies, made no difference to 'the
workers whatsoever, citing ah,, instance of'his own which occurred during a visit to Paris, where although-a
Republie^the workers.wore compelled
to move on at the command of the
police, who evidently saw a menace
in every gathering. Liberty, equality,
and* fraternity ls blazoned "forth on
the outside of the prison as well as
on other public buildings, but any attempt .by "the - working class" to exemplify i^'is likely to cause them to find,
themselves within the prison walls.  ■
He touched on the question of ref
forms and said that they were merely
for the purpose of giving, the working
class a sop, so as to keep them quiet,
illustrating "this point?with a story of

COST(OF„LIVING IN
v A THE OLD COUNTRY.
. The chief .interest of the fifteenth
Abstract of Labor Statistics for,the'
United "Kingdom lies in the evidence
'which it affords that the increase in
the .cost of living and the rise of
prices'are continuing.
• The figures given* " for, wholesale
prices show .that 109.3 cents were 'required-in London "-'to buy the same
quantity-of,-articles ' wholesale" that
could be'obtained'for, 100 in 1900, or
for 88.2 . ih.. 1896.. Thus in ,the last
fifteen "yea,rs>, prices and' the cost; of
living;generally'have advanced,25 per
cent?. •.What'cost 12 cents *in 1896,
costs'15 cents in 1911; oi*, to put it
in another way, rather more .than one
dollar tby an invisible process was
deducted from every 5 dollars'- wages
paid.        \ . j ,,    , ;
in "foodstuffs the rise in prices? has
been remarkable. 113.4 cents were
renuired.-in 1911' tn bnv ' the Rnnia
quantity of' foreign .corn that .-could
have' been, bought for 80.3. in' 1894.'
Potatoes and rice have'altered ^little
jn price in recent years, but the'ad.,
vance..in the price of hops has been
more than 100 per cent. In 1911161.^
cents .would only buy the same quantity, that could have been purchased
for 71.3 in 1896.' Beef and' mutton
have,changed but slightly in price;'
bacon and eggs, however, have soared.*
Bacon ■ touched its lowest figure in
1896, when 82.7 cents would buy that
quantity for- which 142.3 .had, to-be
paid,In 1911. Eggs were at' their
lowest'in 1897, when 96,9 cents would
buy1 as many as 130.4 ln 1911.
Taking the figures for the wholesale
prices of the chief, articles consumed
by man.,'in this country thoy were as
follows: •
. 1896 (lowest recorded)  ..,.   88,2
1900'.?. 100.0 '
1905  ...A,  97.0'
1909 _.....' 104.0
1910 ..,.'.' 108.7
1911   ), 100.3 -
The Board of Trade flguros -stop
with 1911. But from the calculations
published by Sauerbeck, tho statistician, St is known that the rise In prices
has continued at nn oven moro disquieting rato during tho present year.
Thus what 80 centB would buy In'1911
cost In May this year 86.3, a further
advanco during the five months of
nearly 8 por cont,' Thus It ls certain
that the cost of living has risen since
1890 by about ono-thlrd, so that four
dollars today only, buys what could
bo obtained for throo dollars In 1890.
Thnt wngos havo not kept pace with
tho advance In tho cost of living Is
shown by tho Board of Trado figures,
Where 89.9 conts woro paid to tho
workor lu T80I1, tho yoar of the lowest

prices 2fi por cent, Consequently the

is that-labor'producesdir wealth and,

eventually bringing down civilization
in a heapj,    ', "     "'*■*•   7
Let us answer these"objections one
by one. 7   And  let-uso first'- enqufre
why the''people are not now able to
manage^andfeontroi their government.
-   In.the'first place,'-our form of government . does 7 not'- permit' '-the people
to control,..y;Ttfe rich  men who
made'our constitution—and they were
rich for'their.'day; not a working man
among- them—purposely h made' a constitution "under.which ^nothing- could
be' done.to which -this-rich' might object.. n'-That'is "why the United States
'senate .was created.?.   It'was ?frankly
declared.In ttie constitutional conven.
tion. that'the' senate was intended ro
represent'wealtli.,''. The' house of representatives 'was"to  represent  the
people, but the'senate was to'repre-'
sent wealth,-arid ihe,house of representatives couldvenaci no legislation
without the .'consent of, the senate.
,   Moreover,, the  United. States    su-7
preme court ;over, which the' people
have .absolutely no .control, was creat-
ed to construe the law's "made by con.
gress.- ;'•'    ,. ','A ,''■•"- - y .\     ?, "
-,' That Is the?, first' reason why the
people do not now..,coritroP their gov-
ernmentAthe farmers of the'eonstitu-
tion .did notjntend "that they should
control it, and.- the' rich - men . of our
day; are taking advantage of 'their op-'
portunity to' control it .^themselves. •*■
The secondreason .is that thecapi.
tallst '.system,- based.fas It is,- upon
private" profits, makes it highly pro-
fitabje for'the capitalist class to con-
trol the goyernmentA^TheArobberies
of ^'capitalism are committed-through
laws,- and control of the government is
necessary ,to 'obtainand'maintain.-th'e
laws..".'" '    <    '     ,'    -,'■'-'
WHY GRAFT WlLLDIfMPPEARA
* Socialists would abolish^'the senate,
thus,vesting the   entife^legisiative
power, in the house of representative's."
They would take.from th'e president
the power to appoint justices' of 'the
supreme court,' and *giye".th<5 people
the right to elect, all judges.--They
^youId take from ihe .United ' States
supreme court the.usurped.power to
declare acts of congress .unconstitutional, and give to the people the pow-
er to say what actsof "congress ."should
be set aside.     They would maT_e the
constitution of the Ulnted States am-
endable by a majority-vote,.and they
would make, every public official in
the; country,  from  president * down,
submit »to immediate  recall  at ■■ any
time hy the vote of tho'people. -   ."'.
Socialists   respectfully  offer .these
reasons, among others, for. believing
that undor/Socialism; the people.would
be able-to control their government.
Another reason Is,that, under Social.
Ism, there wouid be no trust senators
or representatives,*- no representatives
of great private banking Interests 6r
other, aggregations of-private capital,
because there would be no" such pri-
yate Interests. ■        .*•' *
The reasons are equally plain'why,
under Socialism, we should not be as1
certain to have Socialist grafter's' m
office as we. are, now to have Democratic' and Republican grafters. - But,
not one of these .reasons is -.thai' Socialists believe themselves 'to"be.more
nearly honest than anyone else. Socialists- have .no such" delusion. ^Socialists', simply point'to the fact that-all
of the present grafting is to'secure
private profits...When the profit syj__"
tem, is abolished, and goods .are made
for use instead, of-for profit,-nothing'
.wlll'be\left to,graft for. Public officials could still steal,' bf course; they
could falsify pay .rolls'," and probably
in-'manyrqtherways rob the .people.
But, in the' first place, public 'officials now ,do /'little.-,of" this? sort, of
clumsy, stealing,, and in the second
place,'whatever-stealing of this;*sort
that may. lie done . under Socialism
will be punished'in precisely, the;same
way that it'now is, except more, vigorously. , And so',far as grafting lis
concerned,'.when- the profit, system
that makes^grafting is abolished, graft
ing wilfdlsappear automatically nlnnf
dual liberty, and thus destroyCeivili-
zation itself.   ,.'?.-",'   : ■-   "* -'-•

phrase sacred, . to ' capitalism about
"free competition" ineffective as far
as the working class is' concerned.
For the workingmen' there can he no
free competition, such as is * greatly
injurious to the interests of the worker, and the trade unions have apparently put Marx's theory into practice.
*_*       tam**
Much criticism has been _ directed
against tlie workingmen for being tho
first' to break with the principle of
"free competition" which for so long a
time has been part of the capitalist
creed, but soon the reason became apparent why tlie capitalistic w.orld was
so angry; by constant preaching and
advocating free competition the capi-
talists believed they could weaken
organized labor, "disrupt their organizations and then by organizing themselves make the defeat of the workingmen complete. '       -   ., ' ,
Because, the trade/union fs endeavoring to establish a standard working
time and a standard wage, the organization of the "workingmen was demagogically declared to be an unwarrant-
•3d restriction . of personal freedom',-
while, on the' other -hand the very
same demagogues took refuge in organizing;- they found that organization was necessary to be in a position to fix prices for all commodities
and otherwise take care of their interests unhampered and undisturbed
by any outside'influence, ' The workingmen, who combined in trade unions
for the purpose to fight for standard
wages and working conditions' do nothing else-but ,try- to gain exactly
what trusts'and other capital' combinations are endeavoring to gain for
themselves./'But in the same degree
as. the trade unions succeeded, criticism against labor organizations "as 'a
"restriction of personal freedom"- became stronger.*     ' '-        ,,
?^ 7* ": * - .'* ■ ■* *'~ * ' *
, The road from'free competition to
organization was/not an easy one to'
travel.', A great'amount of educational* work had to.be'done. But having
finally, succeeded,' that' work has not
been done - in "yain, ,,.as the working
class has, been greatly benefited by
tlieir .organization's. .The doctrine of
free competition originated, during the
early times of, capitalism.     Having
freed itself from oppressive feudalism,
capitalism?   proclaimed    unrestricted'
freedom its gospel; above all freedom
of competition.-    Everybody for himself!     That became the fundamental
doctrine of the new era of capitalism;
let everybody enrich himself as much
as he can at the expense of others,-no
matter how many human beings were
being ruined.  '-The oppression of feudalism which had been a burden to all
People alike had,-, to give way to the
capitalist freedom of "the ' individual.
-The capitalists declared that for the
workingmen also, who could and can
compete only with members of their
■own class, free competition must be
•established.and maintained. Tho capitalists knew very well what tliey were
striving at.     with the unequal distribution  of  power  between  capitalist
and workingmen, free competition of
worker against worker can, not bring
about an increase of the price of their
commodity—their   working'  power-
but must lead to the opposite, a decrease of the price of working power
—their ,wages.     Competition of the
workers   among    themselves   never
benefits anybody but the capitalists.
*     *_      *#*♦.♦
In  the  trade  unions  the workers
have found the means to protect themselves.     The trade union is in Itself
a refutation of the doctrine of free
competition; every organized worker
knows that his conditions improved
considerably since-trade unions-were
formed.   , To  prove-that,  "compare
wages and working, conditions of'the
organized workers with those of the
unorganized.      Of course,  the  ideal
trade union, or the trade union as if
should  be,  excludes  personal ' ambi.
tion.^ 'The trade union does not fight
for  better conditions for  the individual, for.the reason that better conditions for the individual are worthless
as  long as tlieir fellow-workers are
compelled to work under inferior conditions. '" The endeavor of the trade
union, therefore, is to better the conditions of the-membership in its en
tirety; individual interests'can not be
considered. - Free - competition finds
in. the  solidarity  thus' exercised  ah
unsurmountable obstacle.     A worker
as. an individual may sometimes succeed in im'provihg his condition thro'
iree  competition,  but  to  retain  improved conditions and make" the success, a lasting one is only possible for
the organization.
,  Free competition-is for'the work-'-
er synonymous with renunciation of^
all claims-'to" better conditions, while
on   the  other  hand,   compulsory  or- 7
ganizatioD., which.does- away' with free '
competition is the means, to .improve ■
.the conditions for ^tlie masses.', The'
trade-union does not deprive anybody.'
of his freedom; it can not take away
from the workingman 7what he does'
not possess. And the freedom to compete with each other can ,nbt be a-
compensation   for   the  real   freedom "
which the worker will gain after capitalism will be "conquered by the or. '
Sanitations of the class-conscious proletariat. ■ .
The  abolishment  of  free  competition and the establishment' of compulsory organization is part of tbe strug- '
gle of the proletariat against capital,

Upon  resigning from  the Chicp.go
police  force  not  so Aery , long  ago,
tlie wealth of a canny policeman prov.
ed to be ,about four times as much
'as his total salary during twenty years
of service.     Graft!     Xot necessarily
—not in the sense in which you mean;
not criminal graft.   At any rate ho •
didn't get caught.  " .His graft seems
to have been quite legal.     He bought
building lots and sold   them as Chicago grew, thereby legally putting into
his own pocket profits to communal,
growth.    This is graft, to be sure,' but
it'is a kind of graft that the law allows.   "I have paid $50," said this policeman in explanation, "for niariy; a ■
lot that I have sold only a year or'
so later for -.oOO."    When you realize
that this profit of ?-150 a lot means
food, clothing, shelter—labor in some
of its manifold forms—and that the
fruits* of this labor, go not to those
who do it, but to the thrifty police-',
man who bought a space on the planet'
for $50   which" he sold for $500, you
begin  to recognize the grafty character of his profit. ,   Somewhere' in
the-,complexities of business' the'$i!o0
which that policeman   gets   without
earning it, others earn without-getting
it—The Public.
In  modern history, "at least, it' is
therefore proved that all, political contests are cla_.s contests, and that all
fights of classes for emancipation, in'
spite  of  their  necessarily    political
form   Cfor every class struggle is a-
political struggle) finally, are'directed toward ■■ economic . .emancipation.
Here, at least, therefore,  the state/
the.political arrangement is the sub-,
ordinate, burgeois society, the rule of
^conomlcTeiations,  .luTdeclding.ele-
ment—Frederick 'Engels;' -    *    ,

REAL ESTATE GAMBLING—CANADA'S
GREAT CURSE
I
T is time' that the people of Canada in general,
„" and -those residing in the West in particular,
raise their voices in.loud protest against the land
sharks that" are infesting the country and- spread-
' ing the gambling genii. - Tliis section of the country has of late been tlieir happy hunting ground
■■with a result that many a working man is today
paying the penalty of his folly by having to stint
aud starve his family,and himself in trying to keep
up the payments in the hope that he may someday
realize his dreams of selling his lot m "Timbuctoo','
at a tremendous profit. , Every pay day these land
peddlers fall upon the innocent and credulous worker (foreign preferred) and extract the last ounce of
'' blood from him.   ' With glib' tongue and glowing
promises they, point out to their victims the certainty of'his becoming affluent within a short time if
he will only snatch "this God-sent opportunity %i
buying in this particular, subdivision.    It is the old
game of appealing to man's cupidity aiid beating
him "with "jaw" about making fortunes out of-a
few feet of earth?". What chance has the ordinary
individual against a professional shark who has-laid
his,trap carefully? - What chance has the ordinary
getting his money back?     Very slim!     It is well-
, known that some of the sub-divisions on.the mar-
" ket are miles away from the town. ' There are suf-
" ficient sub-divisions pf certain towns that have.a
■ population pf some ten thousand .to hold a population of over half a million. -, Even within the town
limits nowadays is no guarantee of its value., In
'such instances the1 municipalities in order to increase its revenue annex portions of .surrounding
land, knowing full-well that the town does not.re-
 quire it for extension purposes?     It is estimated
their money back.    And'yet by sendingreal estate
rustlers equipped with proper maps and advertising matter, into distant parts every lpt 'in- Fernie
could bo, sold -at profitable' prices,', and" every lot
around it for.30 miles (including the inountains)c
could be put up .as. subdivisions and find^re'ady
buyer's.     They could put;up a.'"spi61".about the
great coal deposits; the thousands of men digging'
it (don't say anything'as, to the number of days
a week they put in), the-number'of'railroads that
pass through (that's about all they do), the'beauti-1
ful climatic conditions, tbe "splendidly graded roads
and  avenues, the splendid park'(which nobody
seems'to want), the glorious fishing and hunting,
the intelligent.pu—-A:- No!„,'tis enough!    They'd
"fall" for it every time.       "-'   _.     "'
* In justice,,however, to legitimate'real estate men,'
and we know-of no citizens more.highly, respected
than our local- friends, it "must be said that their
calling is as honorable' as any "other under the'present system of government.     Our object ik solely,
with those who send out drummers aiid" sell lots
which are either a-thousand miles from nowhere,
or so far out of tlio city proper that it will be many
years before the need to reside on them arises.   Instead of men buying lots they know nothing about,
as to locality, if they bought acreage with" a view
of extricating themselves'from their,existing slay-
Cry, and tilling the' soil, they would find'it more
profitable.     No objection'can be taken,to either
city lots at fair valuation, orflfarm lands.    The real
estate shark who sends oufr'druinmers, and especial;
ly amongst newcomers, who cannot understand-the
language of the land, is the one that are a purse in
the land, riot the iionest real estate vendor.   ■_    ;-.

SOCIALISM-. AND THE MAGAZINES
that for every man who will obtain a legitimate
profit on "his investment in any sub-division,. one
.hundred will never see-their money back—their
children may.*   'As a contemporary remarks, it is
much safer to play poker, for in that kind of a gamble you can at least have some fun, and get a few-
Mrinks before the "kitty" swallows all the'chips.
In the real estate game it isa hundred.to oneshot
that,you never get anythingbut a piece of paper—'
1 nnd your oavii dreams about.easy money.
Business in.the Pass-is dull, and a sound reason
given for this, apnrt from the slackness' of the
work ai' the mines, is that the real estate pest has
'got hold of the little thc men earn. The wild and
, crazy gambling in real estate is having a disastrous
effect, both on the .wage-earner, and the business
man. Its evil effect ean he plainly seen in every
mining camp in thc district. Nay, not only ih the'
mining camps of the-.district, hut throughout the
country, nnd even as far us Great Britain, whoro the
Canadian lnnd shark has taken a firm grip. The
Canadian Chnmbcr of Commerce in London have
recognized this and are usipg every effort to put
a stop, or at least minimize the evil. At a recent
meeting of the Council it passed certain resolutions
hearing directly on tho 111 otter, nml any of its members dealing in Canadian real estate aro asked to
pledge themselves:
1. Not to offer for sale any land described as
Canadian lown lots, or similarly termed, a plan of
which has not been registered for' subdivision in
accordance with thc provisions of the locjal Land
Titles Aft in Cnnndn.
2, Not to publish or distribute nny map or plan

THAT Socialism is "making remarkable progress,
is becoming perfectly, 'evident from the space
itv is-being allotted in the, magazines," and in many
newspapers. 7 It seems, to liave come-to the fore-?
front all'of a sudden, for one hardly can pick" up a
magazine without .finding it practically strewn,with
Socialistic articles, either for or against, more often
for. For many a long, day there seems to have
been a sort of an unwritten law amongst journalists
not to, breathe a word about Socialism—to treat it
with contempt. * Keeping-Socialism out of the
magazines was one big bigoter inspiration. Only
a- brain benumbed by -capitalistic "oil" and
"shrewdness "would be-capable of such a dream,
for magazines must have readers, and readers are
constantly .clamoring for something about the'world
in which they live. ? Tliat world *is filling just now
with'Socialistic thought^and the whole current his-"
tory is monopolized-by the march of "the'workers.

was a game of football played between
Burmis and Lille, and although the

In the first part Burmis seemed to
have the best of the play, but Cooper,
of the Lille team, got away;with the.
ball and scored.-* Cooper also scored
again at the opening of the second

M, A. KASTNER
Sole Agent for Fernie
Keir Hardie's Open?y ^
Letter to the Kitig
- LONDON, England.—Keir Hardie,
the pioneer labor leader and Socialist member -'. bf - parliament, issued
throu-gh the ' columns of the '- "Mer-
thyr Pioneer" the following: •" „
Your Majesty— - '
' I gather from' the public press
that t you, accompanied by' the
Queen, ■ are about to pay a visit, to
Merthyr. It is being reported that the
object of the visit is to enable you
to become better acquainted with
your people—a' most laudable object? "You will find the people of
Merth'yr and'Aberdare Valleys well
worthy of 'a better acquaintance, and
were it possible ' for you both to
spend a few days in social converse
with them, they would be able to
tell you many things which your ex.
alted position precludes you from
knowing. °   ,
For myself, however, I must say
that the ostensible object of your
visit does not seem very convincing.
T do not know .what reasons were advanced to induce you. to single out
Merthyr for ' this , special honor," although ' probably-you had no "real
say in the matter,' and I * certainly
should not have-, intervened were it,
not that' there -are "■ certain .. facts
y.'1-ich, *in fairness to yourself?" you
should know before giving ' final .assent to the' arrangements.' ;j V
"" ',        Reason of tne Visit. *
The lesser of these facts is that
a very large proportion of _ the elec:
tors of the Merthyr Burroughs ' are
good sound Labor men and Socialists. This, of'coiirse, is an evidence of
their intlligence, which I hope you
will fully appreciate. For some time
past, however, there has been a
movement on. foot amongst the re.
actionary elements iri the constituency to check the growth of the
working class movement, and, particularly, to oust' me from the' Parliamentary seat. Every eifort of this
kiiid Jn the past — arid' there, haye
been several — has failed lamentably, the working- class refusing ,'to
be weaned from their support of myself and tlieir allegiance to their
own-movement by any„"effort hither,
to ■ made. - '",,'.
Now, however, it. is hoped , that
you may succeed where all else has
failed, and that your presence may
be' taken' as, a hint that an,advanced
Socialist and Republican like myself
is not the sort of meinber'whom the
workers should send to represent-
"th em~in~PariiamenE—"I—'■ y?—*~
.No effort will be spared to -make
your visit as imposing and impressive as possible with this' end in view;
and those members of public bodies
who most bitterly oppose any' expenditure of money in improving the
town or relieving destitution'.will be
in the forefront of those who will
clamor'for expenditure upon decorations and the like on tlie occasion
of your visit. IL will, all be put down
to tlie score of loyalty, although I
shruwedly expect that your experience
of loyalty will enable" you to estimate
thl_j kind at its true value. Let me
add that I view theso efforts to use
you as a political agent with perfect
composure, and merely mention the
matter as a preliminary . to something else of far greater Importance.
That something else is this. Tho
management contemplated, I un-
derstand, Include a visit to Dowlals,
where you aro to bo shown over i.
part of tho Iron Works and bo enter,
tulned thereto lunch. It is this fact
which has led to this loLlor bolng
written.
Millions In Dividends
Tlio Dowlals Iron Worlcfi, with thoso
of Cyfnrthl'a, which nro now blended
with Dowlals, havo been in existence
for over a century, During that period ,lhcso works havo yielded scoroB
of millions ,of pounds In dividends
and profit to |.iow» owners, who
hnvo thus bocomo wnnlthy to nn
armr/lng dogroo. Tho profltH and dividends havo enabled them to become
groat luiidod proprietors who now
rnnlf with tho country nrlntocrncy of
moro than ono shlrc ln ..iififliuid.
F/Von now tho public Imlnnno HhootH
provo tlmt thn profits oxcocd 1500,000
pounds n yonr,
It would nntuntlly ho ftsmimod
that a firm so proHpormiH would havo
beon noted for a fair, If not, a generous, trontmont of Its worldnj. pooplo,
mid nlno for ItH I.piio.hcIIoiih to tho
town In which Itn wenllh wna bring
miido, Tho vory opposltft of this la
tho mho, Tho whole of Morthyr nnd
DowIiiIb will ho MoiiiThod In vnln for
any ovldonco of public spirit or. tho
part of ,the, Guests, the - "Crawshays?
or (as'the firm-is now named), the
Guests, Keens, arid Nettlefolds..' .- '"
- There are no,,, public - buildings,
monuments, public parks or public
institutions due - tb * tlieir generosity
or civic' patriotism. 'Everyone famil7
iar with the Mstory,'of the place is
not only aware that such.things are
a-wanting, but that?-- every effort* to'
improve 'the amenities of the ? town
has been fought bitterly by the representatives of this great firm, if-even
the ? slightest addition to the niuni'ci-
pal rates were' involved. . *'.'.,
Pittance's*'as Wages"-n
That) of itself, would be a serious
Indictment, but there is a* 'much
graver one to follow. From the days
of Its inception down to a few
months ago this' firm had the unsavory notoriety of being'*" the worst
sweaters of labor in the whole of
Wales. Their unskilled workers
were paid Vates ranging from 14s. to
15s. a week—many- of them married
men with families. Their normal
week's work consisted of seven days
of 12 hours," supplemented by overtime, which, frequently ran to three
shifts .a week. ..Their skilled artisans' received from 6s. to 10s. ■ a
week less than wages paid by com-,
peting firms for similar work In the
same industry in other parts of
Wals5 and: elsewhere. No thought;
care, or,'consideration for *the'comfort, safety, or convenience bf the
workers was ever'given by the firm. «
In March, 1911, between 40 arid
50 .'Dowlais molders came out on
strike because bf "ah insidious attempt
"on the part of-the firm still further to
reduce the miserable pittance they
were .receiving iri the form'of wages.
You will be'driven through the main
street from',' Merthyr Station? up
through. Penydarren, to the 'Dowlais
Works. There will be gay buntings
and crowds to watch you-pass. Look
ait them closely, especially from the
upper end'of'Pendarren to Dowlais.
I' have, no doubt, they will ao their
best to make'.the'mselves look respectable, but even then you will find • evi.
dences of deep poverty to which'you
will not .-be 'able to' close your eyes.
Will* King Visit Slums? '
.Were it'possible for you to leave
your 'carriage and, walk around the
purlieus, the back closes, the shims,
the'.horrible hovels in Which hundreds
of the workers of Messrs Guest. Keen
and ■ Nettlefold__ar_e.__he__ded'-__together.
and .for which they, pay extortionate
rent in* Cyfarthfa;' Penydarren and
Dowlais, your majesty would be shocked. And these disgraceful conditions
are the direct outcome of the low-
wages—reduced still further by broken time—paid by .the firm. The Municipal Council is battling bravely with
the housing question,* and1 already has
made a marked improvement in, this
respect; 'but there is evidence enough
left to show you the' mass of unrelieved squalor* which was produced by
tlio miserable conditions Imposed,upon
thoir workpeople by'the great firm
which you are to honor with your
presence, whilst building up great fortunes for' themselves.
I mentioned'above that'the molders
came out on strlko'In March of Inst
year. In pioce'ss of- tlmo their ex.
ample affected other bodies of workmen in Dowlals, and tho agitation for
improvement became general, Tho
firm, however, turned a deaf ear to
ovory appeal imtl Itho government, con
vlnced by tho facts and figures which
I put boforo them, and which they
properly attested by tlielr own, Investigators, Informod Messrs. Quests, Kcon
and Nottlofold tlmt no further gov-
eminent contracts would bo given the
firm until they paid tho workers the
Trado Union rates of pay, • Thin' ex-
ample was followed by ovory ono* of

announced W1 increase In 'the., price
of coal that will bring them about

shop applied with the view of pre.
judicing-the-public' against'trade unions are misleading and convey "a mistaken idea to those unfamiliar, with
tiie operation of workshops' and factories "in their dealing with the em.
ployees. ,. A. more fitting distinction,
conveying the" condition that prevails
in most cases, would be union ■ and
non-union shops, .
The term open' shop conveys the
Idea to those, not conversant with the
facts that" It ls an Industry where
every man is free to work regardless
of his membership or non-membership
ih a trade union,-^and, while In Isolated cases this Is true, yet Sn the great
majority of places operated undor this
system they are In fact closed shops
against union men and womon, Their,
ability ns workmen, their moral char,
actor or In fnct any numbor of human
accompllqliments that a.good citizen
might possess nro Insufficient to overcome tho objection to union mon nnd
women.'

It rcqulrcB Itn mrmbcra to mibgcrlbe
the plant, and'while the wages of the
employes are higher than in the nonunion shop, the cost per unit of'production is' materially less, and'the
quality of, workmanship' - invariably
better. It is • furthermore a humane
institution wherein the welfare of the'
dependents of the,,employes are con.
siaered in, the-negotiations of' the
wages,'hours and-conditions—a noble
consideration in dealings among men,
as tlie future welfare of tne race is
receiving tlie protection necessary to
reproduce itself in more perfect form
arid prevent degeneration.
v The' wages, hours and ^conditions
prevailing ih union shops are universally better tlian- in the nonunion or
so called .open shop.. It is, however,
necessary for tbe proprietors of shops
closed "to union men to pay a scale of
wages"and maintain*hours and conditions closely' approaching those that
obtain in, the'union shop.,- This Is a
condition forced upon "them against
their will to enable them to get suf.
ficient help to man their Industries
and to discourage the unorganized
workers (_from joining the ' union of
their craft. '
The purpose that prompts the effort to' disrupt the trade unions is
very clear. It enables employers to
reduce wages to the minimum^ len-
gthen hours at will and impose ef.
ficieney systems to drive men and
women to the limit of physical endurance, wearing them out as they would
a machine; and finally cast them, Into
the human scrap heap In a condition
beyond repair.-     *    ■
There Is ample data under existing
conditions in many industries, to prove
the union shop produces' the ;maxi-
mum in output at less,cost per unit
when compared with** the nonunion
shop. - it must be .understood, however',' that wages can be reduced in
the nonunion shop to a point where
it* would be impossible to sustain this
argument. Therefore, if given a free
hand in the* labor market—universal
open shop and a closed shop in the
markets for the-products of labor—
the' ideal condition for the disciples of
the open shop will obtain. Property
will be enthroned and labor enslaved.

HILLCREST, July 2..—Considerable
talk was occasioned all along tlio
Crows Nest Pass when the news came
out that tho West Canadian Collieries, - Limited, had shut down , their
mines and coko ovens at Llllo for
good.
This shut-down',1 Is ono of the belated consequences of the   Btrlko   last
Summer.   Before the slrlko tho company had rf ready mnrkot for all the
coko thoy could  manufacture,  prole-
tlcnlly tho wholo output of the mlno

LILLE, July 24—The Lille mine ls at
last, closed clown, only just a" few
working around clearing up.-and the
coke ovens will bo closed up at the
end of the week, which means every
one clearing out of the camp to seek
work elsewhere. It is feared that
Lille will, bo a thing of the past, and
that It .will bo" closed down for good.
It Is said that the coal at Grassy
mountain will bo takon „ out from
Blairmore which will be much nearer
than tho old way. Tho minors of tho
camp have been transferred to Bellevue mine nnd tho nftonioon men will
journey from Llllo to Bollovuo afternoon nnd n.lglit on tho flyer. The men
