corrects some 'of the misconceptions
that "prevail relative - to that country?
It is neither j a paradise or a Socialist,

not bankrupt, as some of the capitalist
papers' have been asserting. New,

money in Europe and loans it to farmers and settlers at 4% percent. This
saves the workers from tlie clutches
of the "money sharks,'yet, last year
cleared-$256,000'for the* state. The
New Zealand government has, 17,833,-

was considerable .time used in preliin-
inaries.    .-A. ■"- '* -' A ". ,  . ■

Donald McNab, ex-M.P., Lethbridge,

must know about the miners, so that
they could get together? The miners
had been misrepresented by the cap!
talistlc press to prejudice the farm-
ers^agalnst^them . It??was. the* object
of the capitalist class to divide tlie
working classes iri every^posslble way.
The'miners were misrepresented during tlie strike by the press and the
labor agencies, The,s.rike' w.as for
purpose of getting better wages".
* Mr. Hyslop,- of Coleman, wanted' to
knbw.it the .proposed:federation was
not Jp:, work along'-legislative lines
like the.'Cariadian federation/.
■• The chairman, McNab^v being privileged-* to,.speak," replied*??to', the question. -He said, Mr. Levinrie had outlined the-grievance' orthe'ifainers' and
their* inability'to cope with them.. The
proposed ^federation1 would aim at getting legislation of a reform1' olnracter.
They , were ' told -that - tbe ■'a.mers..
were;prosperous arid .contented.*- ITe
had * ttried- farming,- arid could say It
,was the easiest'way,of losing money
he knew of. \ The "sooner all classes
arise arid make united ^demands for legislation,* the sooner ..would reforms
come and grievances disappear. "He
knew that 90 per cent*-of the farmers
are mortgaged as far as they can get.
The interests" of the 'farmers and" the
city','toilers are-identical.- If organised they, couhT.go.. to the legislature
as a united.band. and!co-operate.in'demanding' legisiation*?:,.for' the farmer,-
the city toiler,'arid the-.miner. A solid
front\is necessary. • ,?He would be opposed- to the :fede'ratibn takings definite line bf; political action.   ' The men
elected, but there was trouble in the
convention because the two parties
were, pulling against each other. Mr.
McNab was. allowed' an acclamation
in" a by-election, but in the general
election he didn't'even save his deposit, because the laboring men were
not united. ? We boast of having the
ballot, but when called on to exercise,
bur manhood we seem' to be on the
debtor side. . , Morality,' honesty, sincerity and manhood are needed.
Clem Stubbs, president of the riiiners, district 18,'said, having come, in
late,, he didn't know whether they'
were" trying" to form a federation or
trying tb tack ".themselves on to ,a*
political party. Tlie miners are heart-'
ily-iri favor f of the proposed federation. —The miners are ready to combine with all other workers, in order
to get" a fair share of what they produce.?-*- They-had fololwed too many
blind alleys, and run their heads against too many stone "walls. He.-want-
e"d tb see a federation, and a policy,
formed to *wJ»lc_i-all could subscribe.
Mr. Gray, Grassy Lake, said his
U. P. A.-were in favor* of federation
if it could."produce the goods. He believed it could, and moved that they
proceed, to organize.. The previous
question was moved and carried by a
large majority." A   .'    ,   i

MONTREAL, June 18.--?The vexed
question of whether a civil court in
Quebec can give-effect tb an ecclesiastical decision nullifying a rnarriage
is again being considered here, this
time by the Court of Review, which
this' morning began the hearing of the
appeal against the judgment of Justice Bruneau, endorsing nullification
of the marriage of two fourth cousins
by the Roman Catholic authorities.
The case Is that of Tremblay ng-
■_■■ i r
ainst Depatie, two fourth cousins, who
married In Sorel, in 1904, without first
securing * the | required dispensation
from the church. -When the husband
applied for it last fall, the church grant
ed him a nullification of the marriage
because he had violated its. rules as
to the marriage of fourth' cousins, and
Judge Bruneau upheld-the church decision.       ' •    '      \   ■
The wife is * now claiming before
the Court of Review that, while the
church can recognize the violation, the
courts cannot. *''_       ',   ' '•'

200 "persons haye perlBhed iri the destruction of six- viliages as the result
of the eruptions of KatmonI Volcano
waB expressed today on board the cannery.tender which arrived here. The
villages, most of whose inhabitants are
native fishermen, are Kanatuck, Sav-'
anoosky, Douglas, Coldbay, Kariign-
mute and Katnial. ._The tender report-,
od that* at last reports -.'•he eruptions
had ceased, .but -sharp shocks today
caused renewed - fear that /they, may
have been-renewed. ,lt is impossible
to get any details but ' the cender
brought word^that'when. last.. Jieard
from-the-vilfage-of-Uyakron-Kodlajr Island, was safe. It was reported pre-;
vi'ously that ,thl's village was destroyed, and it is now hoped all tbe ^ settlements on the'"Island escaped, without
damage olben tjian getting' aecoyerlng
of volcanic ashes. ' 'Th'er^ is* soma ar-"
prehension over the fate, of FognaK island, which lies between Kodiak island
and the' Katmal volcano. No word
haB been received from there? The
entire atmosphere of Alaska "seems
charged with gases, vegetation everywhere being killed. Last night during
a drizzle, a chemist declared the rain
seemed to carry a' strong charge bf
sulphuric acid. Whenever the rain
touched vegotation it blighted It. Even
iron frame buildings we're slightly eaten. ' It, is Impossible at this time to
get an accurate estimnte ot the damage or the number of persons destitute It is believed, however, the property'losses'are tremendous. ' Hundreds are homeless.
H. N. Galer, _the new- president of -
the Royal Collieries company, which
has just lately been reorganized, in an
interview with the Lethbridge Herald;'
"The various coal mines in the district immediately tributary to Lethbridge will have a pay roll of $200,000
a month next winter. These company
ies are going tb make Lethbridge one
of the' best cities In the west, arid we •
are going to be one of them."
Plant's Capacity Doubled'.
"The company will now me mai'iag-'
ed along the most up-to-date linos."„
said  Mr. Galer,  "and  with" our new '
equipment in place we expect lo be
in. a better position from now on to
supply our customers than ever before.,,
The Royal will this winter be able to'
lift between 500 and 600 tons of coal
per day, and we expect no trouble ^
whatever in finding,a market for 0'ir ■
whole output.'"  * r   , - ,'
According to Mr. Galer-the outlook
for the coal industry, in the .Crow's^
Nest Pass fields is better than it has
been for years. With the demand
for coal steadily increasing and "with
the assurance that there will be no',
trouble with the unions for three more
years, the coal-industry- in this field,
ought to grow by leaps and bounds.   '■*

, ■ Civilization  announced   Its  advent
upon-thestage of events by-the inauguration of slavery: . The slave work-,
ed 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. allowe'd his
slave to starve, he might be unable to
get another, unless;, at   considerable
cost.    '*•■""'        . "    '••     '     '
With slavery there came, the carrying out bf works of greater magnitude
than, formerly.y Under,the lash of' the
master the mighty. "achievements of
Egypt," Babylon, Greece,, Rome,, etc.',
were accomplished - tasks ; that .were
undoubtedly Impossible except through
enforced * labor. , Slowly and.' painful-,
ly, through some thousands of years
were the burdens of civilization .borne
upon the backs of "chattel slaves., The
.tools of wealth production,were by the
sameytoken 'growing- more .powerful,
making-the "labor of'the slave^more
prolific in wealth- production.* \ .This
continually? Increasing' power 'to produce .wealth eventually surfeited the
master class and .its,institutions,' until
the' civilization" of time,'' rotten to the.
core, went to, pieces; at-the touch of
the barbarians' of, a'.-mpre northera
clime; and |out-of the "".chaos of; its
ruins there.emefged a? slavery wearing
a different garb -.but.jn. "essence the
part of the time'"for the;'feudal lord
for nothing, being j allowed to work
the-balance of .the ■'.time for himself
upon land, set'aside for hls.own use.
He kept himself and his family by. this
latter labor!' The^ambiint of time-he
was^allotted to'wbrkifb'r himself .was
as a rule very nicely .adjusted-\o the'
actual requirements tb'-enable him" to
work for the.feudal,"lord the balance.
His predecessor, /the .chattel. slave,;
worked for his master but a'part'.of
the, time. ' But in as much' as neither
got more than the hare necessities of
existence, the difference between them
was one of appearance only. The very
essence of their servitude was the
same in either case.   *-: ,   *
• ■> For some hundredsbf years the feudal system of slavery held sway. The
tools of, wealth production were'continually being improved upon and the
power of production increased." Like
their predecessors,' the*'chattel slave
masters, the feudal lords became surfeited ' with 'wealth and their civilization became a nuisance in the,pathway of human progress. The wealth
the feudal slave could produce.in excess of his own keep could not,be
consumed by his master. It cried out
with ever-Increasing Insistence to be
disposed of. A new master class arose
out of the rank's of the slaves. ' Skilled
workers In the towns partially broke
loose from feudal rule. Master .workmen with their tools ever becoming
more powerful under their hands scented rich profits In' the production and
sale of. their .wares, If the restrictions
of 'feudal rule could be completely
broken. The feudal lords could not
withstand .the pressure of this 'econo-
nic power * developed within- feudal
society, and were' forced to give over
the sceptre of rule to the master workmen who* were speedily to develop1 into
factory lords.      •  • ■ "

As the tfeudal system gave "way, a
vista opened up" before ** the*, feudal
workman "that had every appearance of
being that freedom" of which he had
long'dreamed. .But.it.proved to be. a
delusion:, - The individual workman in
the Individual,shop grew .into a collec-
t^on.'of "workmen iri a larger shop, and
the subdivision of labor. ";The worker no longer made aharticle entire. He
performed a" certain part of the work
only, and passed.it along, to a fellow
workman. The hand tool grew into a
machine and the-process of production became, more-complex and the
necessary equipment' more costly, it
became more and more impossible for
the individual worker to lift himself
from the rank' of, worker to that of
master. -\ Awakened from , his dream
of freedom he\found himself in the
grip of a veritable industriaf'monster,
that squeezed" the .last drop of blood
from his quivering body, even more
completely than did ever chattel slave^
master or feudal lord. Though he
appeared tb.be"free Inasmuch as he
he awakened tb the fact that he .was

The wage slave does precisely for

that either of the latter were paid for

the wage-worker gets paid for his.
The fact asserts, Itself with" ever increasing emphasis that chattel slave;
feudal serf and wage slave worked'for
practically the same thing—a bare existence and this has been rendered
ever more insecure and uncertain as

.      < . '^   " ORPINGTON'
.' Personally I think the breeding of
Orpingtons" has a wpnderM' fascination. When a breeder has succeeded
•in producing a really good specimen
with first class type, and of good color,
he can well-look on his work-with
justifiable pride',' We will take Ihe
buff. We feel* proud if we can get
a real good- one, and ^keep It good if
it's only for other people to look-'at.
From what I can gather very few
breeders differ in-what they consider
the ideal bird, and also the majority
of them have their eye on what's required. But very few have identically thc same ideas in mating their stock
to produce this perfect bird.
I think we all agree that the female
has the greater influence in reproducing type and unnoubtcaiy so.as regards size.    If only one could get typical males to mate with these deep-
bodied hens, all would be well/but such
birds are comii-initively scarce-at present.     Having been j'lriun.iro emiuqt)
to get the best of typo in both sexes,
one has-to face, the question of color.
My observations, carefully noted, are
tha'. throughout the family the light
otEiige, or lighter _.hadewbjiffs have -j
greater tendency to be more typical
than their ricw hued broth-*:'., and
sisters.     Of course, I grant there are
occasional exceptions', but if the breeding- is traced, one often finds a "cast
back" to light orange, blood in that particular bird. .   Now, this is* unfortunate".   rSay one is the lucky possessor
of a' really sound typical male of a
light* orange color, and'has some fe-'

The Alberta, Federation of "Labor.* the" result-of-
this' convention, certainly starts off Avitii a combination .which bodes well'for the .progress of the
people of Alberta, and the workers in the'East will
soon1 realize that we do thing's somewhat differently
in the West, and we are ''getting,together'"' on the
job.. ■•   „*     A.   , -yy1. V''   •   "■•"   . .  ■ ■    A"
IT is a favorite piece of advice of Westerners that
v they do things somewhat differently to'what
prevails "back East," .and it would seem that'the
farmers of Canada ■ could' be classified under two
headings—the ancient and modern. It is unnecessary to point out tliat thoso falling under the
heading of modern are the men of the west, who
certainly do go about things in a far more up-,to-
date and progressive way than those "back _3ast,"
or what we may term the ancient order of agricultural workers. Thc well-worn cognomen of "hayseed" has been applied to the farmers of. many
parts of those who look with complacence "on ..the
farmers who visit the cities to part so pleasantly
with the fruit of their toil. - But,the winds o.f the
western prairie country seem to have blown thc
cobwebs from the brains of the farmers and they
1 are doing some thinking on' their own account.
In the City of Lethbridge this weeic the Convention of the United Farmers of Alberta was held
„ at which were representatives of -various .bodies
of•• organized labor. , The capitalist press with a
peculiar reticence comment very little on this lrieet-
ing, and the significance of the utterances made by
these farmers.    ,lt was not a surprise, of course',
* that the opinions of the miners should be of a Socialistic tendency, but tliat those '/upon whom the
prosperity of this- glorious country of ours depends "should also prove to be inoculated with the
same germs-must have occasioned some consternation to those who had an idea the great question of
reciprocity was "what -concerned the' farmers far
more than "anything else. The "capitalist press of
the prairie provinces, labelled., as ■ Liberal, liks
been 0ebhtini.ally endeavoring to - expose to the
farmers the-great robbery that has been perpetrat-
„'ecf upon them by .the. failure of the country to endorse the Reciprocity pact.with the United States.
They had^becn extraordinarily silent about the _iys-

'inHE day "of'.heroes has not passed, and in the
,fr., City of London, England, in thc offices . of
Mv Isaacsi and/Son Ltd., is a band of heroes such as
capitalism can produce. In the cause of their em^.
ployers they were not behind and the glory o'f .their
masters shines round about them as they eke out
their existence in cheap,lodging and eating houses,
content that .they have not lost their jobs and hoping that promotion may yet be their lot as a reward
for the day of their noble service.    '   " *       „y
Let us give the newspaper report of this notable
event, which is served up in the form of an interview with a.member of the firm who is a brother
of. the Attorney General of. Great Britain.   ■ -
_-A'If we employers have got to go .under, we
-might-as well do.it standing up. . ...   I looked-
round to'see what could be done, and done quickly, too, because the,cargo had been there nearly
a week.   I sounded my clerks, and they volunteered readily to^do the work with the aid . of
some of the ship V erewj" andfl I thought it only,
-  right that" I should go "andn'elp them." .
The heroic clerks under "capitalism fall under the
category of those whoni - the organized -workers
stigmatize as "scabs," but, the capitalist press
parades this incident as a splendid instance of loyalty to those who are wont to consider themselves** as
tlie "only class in society that really matters.
• To those who are unfamiliar, with the position
of the clerical workers in Great ^Britain there is an
inclination of bitterness.in7 the-thought that .they
are such easy victim's of? their employers,. How-
evei>it-must be borne'in.mihd that they are but the
products of a system, which degrades men in their
struggle with one another for existence. They, are
also without organization to1 protect-those*'among
them who' may have sufficient manhood tb voice
their opinions or-take their-stand, amongst the re-**
volutionary working class.7°- , ■■ A"      **'■■■  -"-'

It is also a peculiar fact "that these workers arc
tem which exploits all those who do'the useful work
of society, and have" spent very litle time in defining the true status of the farmer in this benefic.nt
scheme of things. • Then thefarmers.come to their
convention and' demonstrate to these* would-be
educators of/opiiiion that they have a good insight
into the law of surplus value., Tt has been stated
by those who have studied the question that thc
power of thc newspaper on tlie opinions of the
people-is rapidly declining, and the reason is not
far to seek when we see that they fear to publish
thc truth.., Seeing that they can no longer rely on
the press whicli pretends to enter,- specifically to
them the farmers have been reading on their own
account and forming their own opinions. ■ Knowledge is power, and llio farmers nre certainly realizing this. Whnt of the workers on the industrial
field? '
Wlien the. farmers begin to nsk the reason why the
smooth tongucd political orators are .going to have
n gay time. They can't fool nil thc formers all
of .the timo, and .the remarks of one of tho delegates at this convention is an indicntion of the
modem fnriner's viewpoint on politics. "Tn re-
gard to political action, ho didn't'know why farmers living in tho open air shouldn't have brains
equal to the bost on earth; nil ho lacks is training,
nnd ihnrc arc farmers who could', metaphorically
speaking, wipe the floor "with the members of the
legislature. lie hnd seen men at Edmonton little
better thnn blocks nf wood. Tlio people nro supposed io lm sovereign, but they nre told they do im.
know what they wnnt." Tho-politienl heroes of
the l-ibenil hn-ly of Alberta evidently do not

the fatal lure of "prospects'i-the-master class have
been able to keep them from organizing in .their

whom we may term the] "educated proletariat"'is
the most bitter irony 'of the benefits of education

environment it is.easily understood,why "they volunteered readily" to striko at.'thc food and shelter
of those who hnd gono on strike to make their lot

but the bodies'and souls of the workers might rot
if the clerks would *be loyal to their masters in
keeping them in that sphere of life in which it had
plenscd God to call them; . '
What a pitiable spectacle is tho capitalist hero
and in what light does he stand in' the minds of
those whom he has helped to foil in their attempt to
Rccure the rights of "men nnd women by, demanding n living wage.

; Only one game "was? played in tbo
league Competition on>Saturday, June
irth, and the day was notable* for tbe
somewhat surprising.defeat of the
League leaders by the Fernie .Club
We „mentioned, In last',.weeks* _■ notes
that Fernie were likely to upset the
calculations of some, of the more fancied. Clubs, and our opinion has been
verified. , Bellevue have a reasonable
excuse for their downfall in, the' condition of the ground which was a veritable quagmire, and in many places
resembled a swimming' pondv . Still
these uripreventable conditions favored neither side, and the Fernie team
.deserve every credit for their win. ,

1st, or the moving of the'town. •"'-For
the former everything- points- to" success, as "the;1: bills" show,,, and by the
look of things" there won't be a better
day in the west, nor. a tietter place for
a miner or any'-other man to spend
the day than .in Frank. "rAs to-the
town moving, why it ls also all arranged. -** A big committee; headed' by W.
J. McGowan, chairman "of the.council,
went off to Winnipeg to explain mat-
tors- to the Hon. Mr. Rogers, and he
decided,to see that the people, whose
finances were knocked- end-ways by a
prospective mountain slide,'should be
given another start,, so In a short tlmo
wo expect a man along horo that will
ma'fo things, even houses', move. "JJlie
new townsite is an Ideal ono, and when
Frank gets out there it will flourish
nnd grow to such nn oxtont that will
surprise the public.
This has been a trying yonr.on those
wbo held offlco In the Town Council,
especially on'the chairman, tho clr-'

The Trades'Convention held here
last Friday and Saturday to consldor
the advisability of forming a federation of all trades, and also farmers,
was a great success In every' sense of

men who thoroughly understood their
requirements, pertaining to legislative
matters, and .expressed themselves*aB

Los Angeles '.and   Milwaukee   are
two bright and ^shining, examples - of
what is happening in. the Labor Jlove-
ment of. this country.     -,'>,,
v-In. hundreds of industrial cities the
Union' have rendered support to. the
Socialist    Party.   . In'" .Schenectady,
Butte, - Berkeley,   Flint, „ New" Castle
and^in a score or more other, cities
the Socialists have won hy the almost
unanimous  support  of, the~ .working
class.... yn great cities like-St. Louis,
Columbus, Bridgeport and' Minneapolis the Socialists have lost,only by a
small margin. ,       , . '' J "7        r<~
"■ In August of last year the Socal-
ists held in Milwaukee, a conference
of."elected officials.     Socialist representatives in city* councils and state
legislatures came together* to discuss
program's tand methods.     With hardly a single exception, the successful
Socialists were also Trade Unionists,
and jail, agreed that in their various
localities the Trade Unions and  the"
Socialist Party worked' together.    ■
,„ Of course, in these different cities
the methods,,vary by which.these two
movements of' the working 'class cooperate.. In ' some, cases the  Unions
haye'endorsed the Socialist Party. In
other, cases the chief .officials of*'the
Union Movement are the most;active
Socialists   and' are .quite 'naturally
supported by the mass of Union men
because ■ they^ were   disgusted'  with
the corruption..and general ..rottenness,]
of th'«" two old -parties'.', , ''   - 7 """  - !
; The    movement     in", Bridgeport?
Conn., is not-generally,-known,*yet in
many ways"'if is one of the'most interesting in the country.     The party.
and1 the'unions are entirely - distinct.
They do" not attempt"to' mix in each,
other's .affairs,? and they hold "strictly
to their? own field of action. -   Indeed,-
when a<:fe\v Socialists not long since
attempted'to form a dual union they'
■vyere censured,' and later, for this-and
other.; reasons, expelled from "the Socialist Party.. The Unions are'nearly
all" ledHbV>Socialists, but" when any
discussion takes place as to' political
work it,is'._dorie_in the Party,7not in
,th'e Unions?'.".Both the Trade Unions
arid the'Party -are   well-  organized.
They; help "each' other whenever, possible, and .'there is no doubt, I' think,
that'the big vote last year in Bridge-.

, The. candidate'for mayor was Jas?
p'er;.McLevy,< a" slate roofer, a Socialist' of *ten' years', standing' and the
president, of" the Central, Labor Body.
All but two delegates to the Central
Labor Union were, I believe,^. Socialists, or Socialist sympathizers. It,was
only" natural*- that .where' the unions
were so imbued with Socialism" they
should* want to endorse the party's
candidate for mayor. It was also suggested that the ' Unions would give
most of the financial backing.
Of courso, McLevy wanted the support of the Trade Unionists, but he re-
BOhitely refused to permit the central
body or the local unions to endorse thc
Socinllst-Party or to vote funds for
tho campaign, When-one of tho local
papers published an alleged endorsement by the Barbers' Union pf a'De-
mocratic polltlcinn, the Unions made a
public' statement that thoy had endorsed no enndidato or party in that campaign.
T!)o Socialists have been accused
.ind they have accused others, of using the-unions for political purposes.
In Bridgeport every union man' who
had ever run as a Democrat or Republican had, as a mator of course, received the endorsement ot his union, and
often the endorsement of all tho unions. Tho practice of endorsing candidates or parties has worked much 111
ln tho' Union Movomont. It lcndB to
corrupt efforts to elect delegates to tho
contml bodies, and the old political
machines hnvo brought dolegatos, nnd
ovon papers, tn tholr offort to nwlng
politician, oven when ho Is n Soclnllst,
nnd plodgo tho labor vote, But tbe
politician, ovon whon ho Ib a Socialist,
Ib n partisan first and a trade Unionist afterward. If he Is a Socialist, he
protests vlolontly whon a majority of
Democrats ondorso a candldato of
tholr pnrty, hut tho vory moment the
Socialists bavo won a majority the
Unions aro naked to ondorso tbo Socialist Party. Those tactics create
bltternes and dissension, and any such
effort on tbe part of Socialista "to
swing tbe Unions Into lino" differs
only In method from that of the graf.
ten wbo try to corrupt tbo Labor
Movomont. " Tho policy Is a bad one,
nnd McLevy stopped the practice Absolutely by hla resolute action.
MuMivy * ucciiion was tbat of a
innu who hui Ihe hklthl «n«i U*tl
Intcroati of the Trade Union Movomont at heart. It Is In accord with
tho policy of mnny European Social-
tats ,who have urged tho Unions not

was the slightest danger or disrupting
tbe Trade Union movement. It is
also In accbrd with the advice of Debel
and Man, whose words I have quoted
In previous articles, Even from tbe
most narrow Socialist point of view,
McLevy's action wis wise, To attempt
to torn Involuntary mipport for any
principle la tbe height of folly, In*
stead of getting support there than
•elsewhere. And all this ono receives
reeentment You cannot brand men
aa yeu brand cattle. If y<w ewM, thl?

If,-however,1 .-McLevy   "declines'?;to

action on every measuje'that promises
to benefit,the working class."' Before
the" meeting of the .Connecticut"fLegis-"
lature.of"l911',-4he. Socialists arid, trade
unionists came' together * to?( work -put
their legislative .demands.- "'In? the previous, gubernatorial- campaign the Socialists haddemanded the passage of a
workmen's compensation "and a trades,
disputes'"law." "'AH   parities   "pledged
themselves1 to the former, the Socialist-
Party only to 'the' latter/' When the
conference met? at Bridgeport two bills
were submittedcovering-thedemands
of Labor oh both subjects.' The workman's  compeneatioir bill was ".far "in
advance of" anything contemplated by
the old parties, and the trades disputes
bill'was a-measure" which*few capitalist politicians dared   to .oppose,   but
which nearly every one of them secret-*
ly fought.     It-was'modeled after the

defeated, but this* legislative campaign
hadi an ".immense educational ■ effect
upon the'working "class. ' It showed
beyond any. possibility of doubt that

An Analysis of
Exchange Value
Introductory Talk Given by W Grlbble
to Portland (Oregon) Local
Economic Class <       <>
A clear understanding of "value is
tho first essential to the student of
soclnl economy.
Now, wlmt,is value? -
s Valuo doos not exist, apart from a-
terlnl thlngH, any more'thnn life oxlsts
npart from matter, ■
Neither Value or < Llfo of thorn-
solves cnn bo soon, board or folt, yot
wo know they exist,
Lifo Ib that animating principle contained in nil forms of organic nnturo;.
it Ib tho valuo of organisms, produced
In the laboratory of nature.
Valuo is tho prlnclplo contained in
otherwise uboIouo and valueless matter; It Ib tho llfo of-commodities con*
colvod nnd brought forth by tho travail
of labor. ,
As all forms 6t organic naturo contain tho namo kind of llfo, so all kinds
of "comraodltios contain tbo samo kind
of vnluo. *•
You must understand that tho word
Valuo, used, without nullification, al«
ways means Exchange Value,, that bolng tho dominant form of Valuo undor
a systom in which Values aro produced for exehanxt.
To giro a brief definition: Valuo Is
a soolat relationship oxlstlng betwoen
commodities.  ,

tlrely different, how comes It that thoy

Tbo answer Is: . Tbey aro both socially produced.

shall have a clear idea of tholr'social
production and consequent 'social relationship. .    •'   ■"
„ Now, hero's the hat; can anyone tell
me what it is .made of? .
■ Felt, that,.'B right, but what Ib felt
mado of? You see' wo want to'take
this hat back to tho rawest of raw
materials, to the very start of its production, If lt wero possible to do bo'In
a system of social production.
Strange to say, I don't know everything, but I happen to know that felt
is mado, of rabbit's fur, obtained
chiofly, from Australia.
Lot us, In fancy, put this hat back
on tho rabbits in Australia,
"„ Thoro It Is on tho rabbits' backs, of
groat use value to tho rabbit, but of
no oxchango valuo to man until It ls
removed from tho rabbit's baok,
Thoro Ib only ono way to do this,
Just one way, mark you, nnd that is
by labor, The rabbit Is cangbt or
killed In ono way or anothor nnd tho
fur removed from hlfn. Tho fur has
now some value, put thoro by labor;
It can now bo sold—oxebanged for
something else.
It Is next conveyed to tho coast; It
will "fetch" moro there. It has become
moro valuable—more labor has boon
Incoropratod. It Is now put on board
a ship to be conveyed to London, Iftig-

determlnatioif.of ■ a multitude ofc human animals tosqueeze a little joy out
of life, no matter,how great the misery
and discomfort entailed in its realization. - Of course? anything like real Joy
of living is scarce to be* thought of
under the .present, system of slavery or
any other slave' system, ae a' matter of
fact. *• -St,ill,,the noble efforts put forth
by slaves, bf both high and low degree,
to cash a cheque,'however small, upon
tho bank'of,pleasure, are efforts laud-,
ablo in the extreme and the, returns,
meagre" though thoy- nre, afford the
only glimpse of heaven tlie slave will
probably ever get, either here or in
tho hereafter. ,       •
Fortunately for everyone concerned
it doos not require either great, effo'it
or expense to amuse the slaves. Thoy
arotho most easily satisfied crealuros,
both' as to physical comfort nnd mom-
tal recreation, In all tho catogory of

a fow slops of beer and a moving picture show for relaxation and amuso-
mont and a capitalist dally papor to

is In full blossom as tho only genuinely contented nee that ovor aimlessly
meandorod down tho thorny piko of

And it coBts bin masters such nn Insignificant sum that groat Is tholr joy

nnd his vlnngr. anointed nn with the

For all tho Joy of llfo gnrnorcd hy

The open shpp is a menace to America in the opinion of Seth Low, president of tho Rational' Civic federation,
He told ti'tit organization at its recent
annual convention at Washington that
the open shop ordinarily is not a shop
where union and lionuion men work
side by side, but a-shop from which
union 'men*nre excluded, if they llvo
up* to union- principles.
"And if tlio various organizations of
employers persist in their efforts to
crush unionism," he said, "the statoB
and congress will curb them with drastic measuros," Mr. Low blamed a
certain class' of employers for tho
growing feeling ,of unrest, saying:
"Some of tlio largest corporal ions in
this country offend in practice against
tho primary law of fairness—the right
of workers- to collective bargaining
through lenders-of tholr own choice—
and In so doing they-aro, In my Judgment, more rosponslblo for tbo growth
ot revolutionary soclnllsm than all other agencies combined."
"Th Lawr'enco strike," Mr. • Low
said, "and similar occurrences In many
places aro episodes of which'a chare-
tor as to nwalton tho most serious reflection, bocnuso thoy show that the'
relations botweon capital nnd labor in
this country nro far from satisfactory," Tho vnrloiiB classos or employers woro thon discussed at length and
those who oppose labor unions severely criticised,   lio concluded;
"Tho pat.iv.ny to Industrial poaco
and Industrial efficiency in to bo.found
In tho hourly co-operation of employ-
ors with labor unions.
"In a day when China has borom'e n
