The, first test- of strength between
che radical and conservative wings
and the number of votes polled by the
radicals' was slightly under their advance estimates. ,.The',vote of the
United Mine Workers (2,670) and the
Western Federation of Miners (506)
was cast entirely for the minority re-
pivrr. Among groups that lined up
with the radical wing were the bakers
and confectioners, iron' and steel and
tin workers, printing pressman, railway carmen and journeymen tailors.
The debate preceding the vote is said
tr. have been one of the most spirltcl
that ever took place In a Federation
convention.

and Canadian delegates to the American Federation of ..-Labor here, last
night, President Gompers said:'. "If

nations tbe trade unionists of the
world would refuse to supply provisions , and munitions of war, thus
bringing,it to an immediate end." '

LETHBRIDGE, Nov. 19.—Leon Syn-
iuk, a Slav miner, employed at No. 6
1
mine died yesterday morning as the
result of horrible injuries which, he
had received Saturday] while at work
in the mine. .The mounted police
were notified of the death yesterday,
and a coroner's inquest will be held
ovor the remains today.
Syniuk was employed in the mine
and ih some way he managed to get
tangled up in the machinery. In a
horrible mangled condition he was
rifsiiea'to'thVhbspftaTartd although all
that medical aid could accomplish was
done tho man expired.
' Syniuk resided at tho corner of
Fourth Avenue and 16th street, and
had been employed at the mine for
some time. The authorities nave not
yet ascertained how the accident occurred as the matter was not reported
until the unfortunate miner had succumbed to his Injuries.
At the Inquest today a verdict of
accidental death was returned. It
sooms that the doccased sustained his
Injuries as tho result of a panic cans-
od by his becoming excited over tho
runaway of four cars In splto of which
seven oprogs wore put through tho
wheels to prevent tho cars skidding
down the Incline. - The doconsod In
endeavoring to save lho property of
tho company was In somo unaccountable manner caught between tho enrs
nnd frightfully mangled. IIo resided
nt ICth street north and Is survived
by a widow,
Ettor and Glovannittl are at laat,glv-1
en a chance to testify on the witness
stand.
J. J. Ettor described the events of
January 20, when the strikers pftrad-,
ed. Ho declared that he urged that
there bo no. violence; that he said,
"We will march away from the mills."
He also told how, during the parade,
he headed off a detachment which was
marching toward the place where soldiers were stationed.
"Tliere was danger of disturbance
with the soldiers," he said. "I stood
between the soldiers and the head of
the parade. I held up my arms ana
hat and swung the mnrchefs away
from the soldiers."     ■
Ettor said he told the strikers not to
provoke trouble and not to let themselves be provoked into trouble. He
said: "I told them I was morally certain that the attacks-upon the street
cars were carried out by direction of
the mill owners to brovoke trouble. In
support of that I cited many strikes in
which employers actually destroyed
their own property^ to discredit the
strikers and gain military interference
to break the strike." -
The Commonwealth produced a circular signed by Ettor and Giovannitti
advising the strikers' to "knock down
the stairs" persons who urged them
to return to work, and to "break their
bones."
"The first time I saw that circular^
".was when It was

"A program of destruction cannot
bring results," declared Ettor. "Therefore I bar it from ray program in striving, for the fulfillment of. my . social,
ideas, I am a member of the I. W. W.
because of those ideas. I am .1 Socialist politically. I am not an anarchist. '
"Anarchy ls the' philosophy of individuals; I W. W.ism Is tho philosophy

'You said In one speech that 'the capitalists had control of the city officials,
tho police and the mllltla,' didn't you ?.'
District Attorney Attwill askod Ettor.

Ettor.

"Yes."
"And you aro familiar with the Constitution nnd American history?"
"Yob, It wns bocnuso of my knowledge that I stated lt was the capitalists' Constitution," Ettor retorted.

"Yes."
"You looked upon tlio courts as re-

Art uro Glovannittl, the young Soclnl
lst writer and  poet, faced the jury,
despite the absence of his personal
counsel, W. • Scott Peters.     He said
after having affirmed to tell the truth,
that he was born in Italy 28 years ago,
the son of a 'chemist, and was educated there.    Coming to America, he lived for some time at Halifax and Montreal.    "Whilst studying   English '.at
Montreal he conducted an Italian Presbyterian Mission, after which he entered a Presbyterian theological school.
He afterwards - took charge of a mission In Brooklyn and conducted    an
Italian mission at 'Pittsburg.     There
he became connected with the Socialist
Par.ty; but people of the Presbyterian
Church objected.   , "I told them," he
said, "I did not think the teachings of
Cm 1st and Socialism were antagonistic, but I severed my connection with
thr church."    Returning to New York
in 1911 he look up Italian newspaper
woik and met Ettor.     He went to
Lawrence January 20tlf last after the
strike was called, and before going
there learned the mllltla had been called, 'that there was a'feellng that Ettor
should leave the town, ,and also that
the stations were being watched for
outside agitators.      '

consider tho lives of the defendants as

thon said:
"Have you discovered what is really on trial here? It Is the result of a

UNREST OF LABOR
FIELD OF ENQUIRY
CONGRESS PROPOSES. TO SPEND $500,-
"   7000 ON INVESTIGATION
Washington:—a.bin is about to
pass congress providing for the creation of a commi'ssion-.to "inquire into
the reasons for industrial unrest.".. One
member of congress thinks it unnecessary to spend half a million dollars'
io find'why there is industrial unrest'.
Mr. Berger says of the proposed legislation: ''
"Scientific investigations of industrial conditions, if properly, conducted,
are always useful, of course". ■ It is
doubtful, however, whether the proposed investigation will bring forth
very, muoh that is now. Everybody
who has studied the present economic
system knows the cause of the 'social
unrest.'
"It is this; According to the government figures at hand the average
net production of every wage-worker
in the United Slates is " valued at
'$1,290 annually. The average wage
paid in 1909 was $518. In other words
the worker received a little over 40,1
per cent as his share of the production.
The rest went to the - capitalist class
as a whole in form of rent, profit and
Interest. v ■.    .  ,
"Now, if the commission will make it
its duty to find out in what way this,
surplus value bf the product which
was distributed among the capitalist
class could be retained1 by the working class, then the commission would
do very useful work.
"If, oh the other hand, this ne\\
commission is simply going to collect
all kinds of statistics and publish tho
same in a.large number of bulky.volumes,'as.did another industrial commission some ,12 years ago, then I will
say beforehand, that the work will be
productive of very litilegood.
"Another suggestion: -The great
question before the people now is whe-
there we are to have organized capital
or organized production and distribution.- It is percetly evident that we,
must, in' the future, have organized
business action of some kind.   •
"Now, let the commission show the
way how we can have organized-business in the interest of the^ entire-nation instead of in the interest)of a
few individuals. That would be worth
while."   '
Because thoy aro THE BEST ON THE MARKET, that's why.

THE MINES
—-REGULATION-ACT
, When the Coal. Mines Regulation
Act for British Columbia was passed
amid bombast as-the most perfect law
at the session of the Legislature for
1911, we pointed out that lt was incomplete in that no provision was made
for properly regulating the use of electricity in mines. Within a year and
a half of the passing of that Act,'the
Bureau of Mines has discovered the
omission, and has, so we are informed,
advised companies who had. in hand installations of electric plants that they
will noL be allowed to use tliem until
new legislation has been brought In to
regulate, the use of electricity in coal
initios, The result Is thnt companies'
linvo either hoon compelled lo "drop
.their electric installations, or havo
postponed them until they know what
tho provlslono of tlie proposed lnw
shall bo,
The action 'of tho department in1
making such provision Is right, but
what wo object to is that, tho development, of coal mining should bo hampered by incompetence or Ignorance
on tin. part of tho Mlnlstor of Mines,
and thoso who drow the laid. Ant on
tho subject of mino regulation, whon
provisions wero neglected which qyory-
ono who know anything of tho subjoct
recognized nn nccossnry. Tho result
Is moro botching of laws and regulations, whlcli should ho put ln us perfect slinpo an posslblo at onco, so tlmt

SOCIALIST ADDRESS

J. R., Knight, of Edmonton; address-1
ed .a meeting in the" Labqt'.Temple/
Lethbridge, on Sunday nightf on Social-
ism, prefacing his,addressTby'saying
that he would be glad to answer any
question put to him on-the-merits of
the cause. . Mr. Kiiighi defined.' Socialism as the application,of the theory,
of evolution to society and thereafter
at length dealt with .its origin" aiid history. Civilization' announced;its ad:'
vent upon the stage of events -.by,,the
inauguration' .of slavery. 7; • The '• slave
worked for the master.''. The "product
of his labor belonged to the master.
The master saw that the 'slave had
food, etc., sufficient to enable him to,
work on the.morrow. If he allowed
his slave to starve he might .be unable
to get another, unless at considerable"
cost. With slavery there came the
carrying out of,works of greater magnitude than formerly. "The feudal
slave worked 'a part of' the time for
the feudal lord for nothing, being allowed .to work the balance.of the time
for himself upon the land set aside' for
his own use.. -The wage'slave does
precisely for his master what the chattel slave and feudal serf did 'for theirs.
No one would be impudent enough to
assert that either of the latter were
paid for. their work,- yet in common
parlance the wage-worker gets paid for
his. The fact asserts Itself with ever
increasing emphasis tliat chattel slave,
feudal slave and wage slave worked for
practically the same thing—a bare ex-1
istence; and. this 'has been rendered
ever more insecure and.uncertain as
each successive stage soaldoz
each of these successive- stage's of
civilization became more highly developed. ■ Mr.- Knight's remarks were
warmly appreciated _and his answers
to several questions directed at him
were answered with clearhers..

T
is not -with surprise or alarm that ve.observe
the advent of a monthly magazine to uphold
the interests of the employing class. The "American Employer," a monthly magazine, has been
launched and is published at Cleveland. Ohio. Wc
are informed on the cover of this publication that
it is "a monthly magazine devoted to the interests
of the Business Men in the United States and Canada who hire labor." That it is in the interests
of those who hire labor is evident from the editorial in its first number wliich frankly admits its opposition to organized labor and Socialism. , Jt believes in the open shop and the supremacy of the
employer over his wage slave. But for the workers the editor of this magazine has, no ill will, and in
fact says "We are not his enemy and wc wish him
well. ' In addition, we fight his battle, for we
insist he shall have the right to work if he wants
to work, all the opposition to .his working on the
part of any man or any body of men to the contrary notwithstanding." As to Socialism, he says
"We are opposed to Socialism as inherently bad
political economies and against human nature."
The large increase in the Socialist vote in the re-
' cent Presidential elections in the United States
must have been received with an uncertain enthu-
_siasm by this well-wisher of labor.
Not alone on the political field does he receive
an unwelcome shock, but in the third number of
this publication,' which we have before us, he is
•trying to arouse the employer to the danger of
continued organization of labor by pointing out the
encroachments of the A.'F. of L. into the sacred
^reserTes~of~tne~uiiited"States~SreerCcn-pOTationT,~~
The Socialist economics may appear to this apologist of the employing class as "inherently bad,"
but it is strange that our much maligned theory of
■""the Class Struggle finds such conclusive evidence
in the appearance of a publication avowedly out for
oppose organized labor. cLet us take the evidence
from the pages of the third number (October, 1912).
On Ihe title page, following the list of contents, we
find "Printed in an Open Shop," and on pnge 137
we find under this heading "This Organization Deserves Support," an appeal for membership of the
National Building Trades and Employers' Association, and on page 151 under the title of "Surprising
Decision" this inspiring news to-employers: "The
supreme Court of tho State of Kansas 1ms rendered
a most surprising decision to the effect that a Kansas law, making it a criminal act to discharge a man
for being a member of a labor union or refusing' to
quit a labor union, was valid." It docs not take
much intelligence to observe thc class linos, and his
, solicitous concorn for the "right to work" for the
workers should have been corrected to "thoir right
to bo worked."
Tho Employers' Association is a grand thing, but
tho Employes' Association is abhorrent.    Thc employers aro perhaps organizing for the benefit of
tho workers?    The lovo and respect in which the
workers woro hold previous to their organization on
the industrial and political fields was truly touching.     The self-sacrifice of which the capitalists
were capable in tho strugglo'for the reduotion of
tlie working day is a monument to their generosity.
Thc concern with which thoy thought out mothodH
for tho preservation of human life in tho factories
and mines; the kindliness with which they induced
women nnd children to stop out from the narrowness of tho homo and proudly enrn thoir living
amongst men nud boys in Iho beautiful workshops
prepared for them I    Blood nnd sweat, and heiu-t-
lcss toil and misery Imvo boen tho soil upon which
lnbor organization wns bulit.    A soil prepared by
wipltalisin, and wliieli onr critlrH would have- us

been r'eally made within tire" past two'years, and is
the handwriting on the wall points to, yet greater
"strides and wider knowledge of our principles/if
is not difficult to forsee in the very near future-th'e
ultimate downfall of the capitalist >ystem-across
the border. _ But before that eventful day "arrives
the old parties will all be united, as" they have in
fact done in many instances in the recent elections,
and will make one final grand stand altogether..
The struggle for existence is becoming more acute
Jvorn day, to day ' V-neuvploynient is rife a'tul ;V*?
having jobs are desperately clinging on to them.
In these circumstances it is not surprising to note
that the working plug,' beiug compelled to think; is
beginning to realize that there is something radically' wrong with a system that forces upon him this
dread of not knowing for how long his bread and
butter is-assured.     And, thinking, it is bound to
dawn tipon him that in Socialism lies his only hope.
In these-circumstances it is regrettable that" there
should bo petty squabbles and misunderstandings
in our ranks,    ids, prehaps, of little consequence;
for sooner or later both working for the same end,
we will come'together.   This can best be illustrated
by-the split of the Socialist votes in the elections
in .question, when the Socialist Lnbor party put up
a, candidate for the presidency in the person-bf
Rheimcr.     Whilst figures are not to hand as to
what his vote was, it is estimated that it was inthe
neighborhood of 60,000.    True, it is not much, but
if this party would have joined forces with' the
straight Socialists Debs' vote might haye been close
upon say'J,500,000.'   Por, in the ranks of the Socialist Labor are many'good-men and women, who
unfortunately devoted most of their time to criticizing Socialism.   Much bigger and better work could
have been accomplished by them in working for Socialism.     Had tbey used even a little of that energy in attacking capitalism they would be farther
advanced than they are now.     There is no use in
their continuing to prate and preach their own vir-'
tues the while they do nothing against capitalism.
They have only one place, and that is in the Socialist party.     V , • ' '

The need for such  a socl4ty. has

THE WORLD TOO SMALL FOR WAR
A
tlu.t
DESPATCH from\Cochrane, in Northern Ontario, published iu The Globe yesterday, says
railroad contractors on the National Transcontinental have been obliged to close, down work for
:bc year as a consi-quenee of the exodus of Bulgarians for the war." This is one of the many illus-.
trations of the widespread disturbance of life all
over the worl'd caused by a local war on the shores
of the Black Sea covering an area of less than a
dozen Ontario counties. \ - .-
'The declaration, of war .in the Balkan'States in-
"CTeased"the_cost"of_x6odstufi.S'to'the"people-in-a3rH-'
ain with ten hours, and the report that a Greek
navy had'taken'comhiand of the Dardanelles raised
the'price of wheat in Chicago.     Stock markets in
London^ Berlin, Paris and New York were injur-,
iously- affected, • and hundreds of Canadians who
knew little and cared less about the Balkan question suffered serious financial loss. >   Trade has
been interrupted in all parts of the world.    Indus-,
tries for a time were paralyzed not only by the sudden confusion of the world's credit, but by the'with-,,
drawal of thousauds of ^yorkracn' from economic
labor to return to their native "countries as soldiers
at thc expense of those engaged in remunerative
production.    And yesterday's ..despatch   reports
seven hundred Bulgarians "bound for the front,"
causing delay and loss in tho construction of. the
National Transcontinental Railway across Canada.
1   All this means that tlie word is getting too ,small
for war-.    Every advance of civilization, every discovery of science, every improvement'in the means
of international communication, and every widening of tho bounds of human thought makes war
botweon any two nations an archaic, pagan aud intolerable nuisance to every other nation   in   tho
world. , Woro it not that the so-called "Powers"
aro themselves still tho victims of the military delusion this now exploded bluff of tho Turk would long
ago havo been ended as thc antics of a half-drunkoi)
desperado in a Rocky Mountain mining camp or of
a hold-up gang in a railway cutting would bo ended
by a squad of Northwest Mounted Police.
What is needed in Britain and Germany today is
not so much annual expenditure of $500,000,000 on
Uio moans of war, tho incitements to tho warlike
tompor, and compulsory training for war, but rather a comi.ion.soiifio appreciation of tho stupid folly
of war, ilH humbug patriotism, and il* impertinence
as a disturber of tho legitimate lnuiinoHi. of tho community of intorpendonl nations. What civilized
loenl society lias dono with tlio brawler ami tho
bully must now bo done by civilized society with
any brawling ond bullying nation. War is out of
date. Tt is brulnl. It is stupid. Aud ovon at
best it,loaves tlio ronl question at issue lo bo solved
by intornatioal law, roason, and arbitral justice.
If war in the little Balkan territories puts out of
gear the machinery of tho world's industry, trado
and credit, what would war between Britain and
Germany meim? Tliat question makes world-lvou-
«wn nut, of wnr Hr»nreR nnd tlif> wnr tnlk thnt feeds

as well,as on the equipment they possess-to handle fires with.
Will we have a rink or not? has
been a common question around here
lately, and nearly everyone was sure
we would. Yet- there is always a
few pessimistic souls that don't see
things on their brighter side.' However, the question has been settled.
^ meeting was held' in the school hall
and eyerybody was a booster. Such
statements as Frank was never as~
prosperous as this year might have
been heard, and. at once a rink was
decided on. Heretofore the older meii
were the'responslble parties, this year
they all wanted to take a back seat,
give - subscriptions, etc., and let the
young men run the affair, and even
do the work i£ they feel so,disposed.
A rink committee was appointed,
composed of H. D. McKay, sec.-treas.;
N. "Ekrosby, F. AllSt, J. Hamilton, M.

-.._,'•■
HIGH, LIVING!
. An Edmonton bank, clerk has been
arrested at Vancouver and has confessed to forging cheques to the extent of $60. .l '
■ A case of gay living, card playing,
theatre-going and drink some .will say.
But that is not so. ,
This young man, who is 20 years of
age, was receiving the miserable salary of ?50 a month, and on that was
supposed to pay all his living expenses
and keep up an appearance in the
city of Edmontou.
He could not live decently on that
, salary, and instead of going into debt,
robbed the bank.
When arrested he had not eaten for
three days, but had secured a position
in a store at a faiv.'salary,- and 'even
tbe police, who are proverbially hardhearted, believed him when he said he
intended' to live an honest life, and
pay back what lie had stolen.
This young man" no doubt did wrong
in. taking what did not belong to him,
but what about the people who put
him in a position of 3uch temptation?
The bank -he was- working for is
paying 'a dividend   of 12 per cent.
' It made a profit last year of $704,-
045.95 and has accumulated ,a reserve
fund of $5,702,799,007 7y
.Its board of ^directors .includes a
knight who is also a member of parliament, and severa! other million-
.aires.    ■ v
And they expect a bank clerk to be
honest and live in Edmonton on $50
a month.—Winnipeg Town Topics.

I, lettori 16 sanno gia;:.io* sono un
impentiente ammiratore dei socialist!
tutonici ed ogni qualvolta mi e dato di
dimostrare, le loro buone qualita,lo
faccio volentieri. 7 E quanto intendo
dimostrare con queste righe, piu' ancora di buona volonta, sono buoni rl-
sultati. Chi ml forhisce i dati e in-
cora il eompango R Schiffke. II partito Socialista ■ Tedesco ha tenuto' di
questi giorni il suo congresso annuale
a Chemnitz" in Sassonia. La estesis-
sima relazlbne che la dlrezione del partito (Pnrtoivorstand) ha membri del
partito1, in forma di supplemento al
"Vorwarts" ed a pre'sentato al delegati
ed a tutti.I tutti i loro glornall quotidian!, consiste di G4 flttlsslme pagine.
ii uorb ,tremendo lavoro organlzza-
torio risulta lampantevdalle numerose
e ben ordinate statlsticho; statlstlche
mal nep'pur sognate dai sociallstl latin! e neppure dal pratlci amerlcani. I
membri del partito'salirono .in un anno da'836.5C2 a 970,112 di cui'130 mila
sono donne,"ll che da iin aumento dl
171 mila e piu' precisamente del 15.9
per cent. Essi contravano pero1 di
arrlvare al milione preciso di organiz-
zati il che non e lor riuscito, ma non
per questo -v e da dolersene. II pro-
presso che 1 tedeschl hanno fatto Jn un
anno e 5 volte piu' grande di quello fatto dagli italiani d'America in 15 anni. Confortante e l'aumento delle
donne nel partito il quale arrlva.al 21
per cento' superando di molto l'aumento generale.
Alia testa del movimento, se con-
siderato per.stall, sta il,regno di Sassonia' con"150 mila membri e 19, de-
putatial "Aeichsiag" su 23. A giusta
ragione questa vien chiamata la Sa's.
spnia rossa. ; Ma se il movimento vien
cousiderato4.er citta alia.testa di tutte ,sta Berllno o sobborghi con 120
grande ih;,dimensione ed in popola
zione parimenti indu'straile, i nostri
compagni amerlcani non hanno certo d!
che vant'arsi. Non voglio pero' con

tutti o nota la ononno vittoria die essi
rlportarono nello elov/lonigenorall nel
gennaio, scorso in' cui elessero 110 de-
putati al "Reichstag" ed- ottennero
4,250,320 voti e cioe un milione in piu'
di quanto ebbero nelle precedenti ele-
zioni del 1907, Con un sistema piu!
proporzionalmente corretto nella- for-
mazione' del'collegi, con simile numero di voti essi avrebhero dovuto avere
139 deputati Invece di 110 ed-il centro
(il partito clericale) avrebbe dovuto
averne 23- di meno. Diverse eletlooi
che.ebbero luogo in differenti parla-
menti statali (Landtag) recarono pure,
soddisfacenti risultati a dispetto dell'
ingiusto sistema elettivo prevalente in
essi,1 in,, cui il, ricco conta per Ire,, il
mefdid bo'rghese per 2 e l'operpio )>er
uno-solo. I deputati statali salirono
dunque a 224 au mentando di 36. 1
consiglieri comunali ed altro piccolo
rappresentanze comunali sono 12 miia.
Di queste cifre ogni socialista, non
solo teutonico ma anche latino, e or-
goglioso e si augura solo che il pro-
prio n paese possa presto dare simile
rlsultato,
I nostri cugini slndacallstl sembrano
disprezzare e elf re e voti cosl pure il
mlo conclttadino che ml ospitn a I-Iol-

mento. Ma a lul ed ai suol amid
raramenlo solo l'evoluzlono dl Gustavo
Herve in riguardo al valore, alia forza
ed alladlscipllna del Partito Socialista Tedesco.
II "Socialist Party," se pur non ha
an'cor dato simili risultati, cionondl-
meno e sulla stessa^ via, e noi, seb-
bene parte minuscpla di es so, daremo
del nostra meglio onde non abbia ne
