Anything,,of '-"permanent good' by* the"

v BERLIN,. July 12.4Germariy, is a
very .unpromising field, for.the advocates-'of" female .suffrage, but'***.they
have'_ at least1' this success on record,
that; a society, has been formed-to op-
posevtheir'. agitation. ? - -. With careless
candor it calls itself ,the "German
Federation ,'for Combattirig;the Emancipation of Women";and thus by<implication justifies * the cause against
which, it is ' directed. ' For, as' the
nearest'-dictionary, affirms,? emancipation means "deliverance from slavery,'
and,,even for German men, this'is a
far-reaching admission.
.•The federation is, however,, not entirely male 'in its composition.- In the
manifesto which'It has. issued to the
public i we* find*, more' assertions ■> than
argument's? The signatories believe
"from her whole nature that woriian
was not^ destined for' the' struggles
which"'- today .are. unavoidably bound
up with-the suffrage.", -.They 'think
that "the*national administration and
the spiritual' and judicial offices mus£
as in^the'.past, tie"reserved to'men,
an"d-that--the^subordiria1,iori-of4nale--0-
female officials'must be prevented by
law." 'yy "y ; y \--'-y ,
* ' Co-ediica'tion. is (mother thing'that
fills them j with apprelienBion, and they

.study ?should' ^e-.-osen .tor.^cpien^n
which they can' exercise their"'special
faculties with,'""xi'uccesH" Separate
academies, it is'claimed, should' be
established for female students,,,and
"as Boon as these have been brought
into existence the universities! and
technlcarhlgh schools must be roserv:
ed for male youth, and women only
be admitted - to" them ab listeners."
The'-watchword of the soqlely la.to'
be,'"Truo manliness for men;, true
womanliness for women."
./TlwrHon. Mr. Crothers,*sMinister of

Crothers and party paid*a visit.; .to
Fernie ,on'Thursday. ■"He/arrived" in
his special car attached to the passenger, at ■■! 0.20 a.m.,. and-'was met",by
A. J. Carter, J. W. "'Gray,* Thos': Uphill and Nie Mlcisco.-- 'During7.ttie
morning ..he visited,,the-;'Coal Company's'' office; and in the^'afternoon he,-
togetherwith °Mrs Crothers and party,
visited Coal Creek,..where they--were
shown round No. r Jline East by Supt,
Shanks. Messrs Carter"and< Uphill
accompanied them. THis was the
first time-Mrs.. Crother was through
a coal -' mine.; t After a pleasant and
interesting afternoon the party returned to Fernie at'6,p.m.    . ■> . ,
In the evening Mr Crothers mel a-'
deputation" of ttie miners'in his" private
par and matters of general and local
labor interest, and more especially effecting "men .^working: in coal mines
were discussed. ' Such matters - aB
fortnightly*! pay, inspection of mines,
etc., were',, all thoroughly gone into.
The Minister promised, to take these
matters. up - with his' government on
his .return" to, Ottawa. "The party left
for Lethbridge.on the midnight Flyer.
while in others ten hours were not too
much., Challenged, as -.to. the' use, of
the .militia- during strikes, Mr. Crothers replied that the militia were not
used to.overawe or crush strikers, but
to protect,property.A*.The- .duty ,'of
keeping order* and-protecting property must .be performed' by, the government at all costs. , He promised to'ad-
yocate the inauguration of. a system
of national labor exchanges,-covering
all Canada, He also promised-.to support a, workmen's compensation act,
which would give compensation, regardless of whether 'death or" Injury
was caused by tho .workman's folly or
otherwise.: As to technical education,
he said that any, money voted by the
Dominion-Parliament for this purpose
would, be. handed',over to provincial
governments~.o be expended for, this
purpose.   .-.-•' . '

Crothers, minister' of .labor,""" held a
conference'at, the-Labor Hall yestei\
day «*wi tti-'the'1 inembersi-'of-the ■' trades
unions, and a-free,'exchange of views
took place.'• Mr. Crothers declined' to
pledge himself to support a universal
eight-hour'day, holding that in somo
occupations.five Iioui-b were enough,
On Sunday afternoon last Alf Bud-,
den, of-Battleford, Sask., addressed a
small audience in the Grand Theatre,
taking for his subject "-Socialists and
Anti-Socialists." It* is unfortunate
that such a large number of the workers-cannot avail .themselves of an opportunity to hear an able exponent of
working class'. philosophy on a subject .which is of vital importance to
them. Those," who ,were sufficiently
interested to be present, however, cer-
tainly Jeft, the" meeting with a better
idea bf the scientific gospel of the
.working class'-movement. Comrade
Budden did hot waste any words dealing with the .anti-Socialist who was
limply an "antr'.^tKro^iiTTaclf^fnff"
telligence, but rather with those who
lay claim tb'-,being'"heavyweights."
He presented the*philosophlcal aspect
in such a mannr as to be easily grasped by his'listeners,?and it to be hoped
that .when this co_nrade:again visits
Fernie Iwv.. will, have' the pleasure of
talking1 to an' audience that will reflect creditably on the' claim 'of the
workers in this city to being intelli-
gently class conscious.
, As the result of a,largely attended
meeting of Gladstone Local, held on
Monday evening, last, a' deputation',
consisting of Chas. Edgar, John .Drew,
T. Cllmie, W.'L.'Phillips, H. Lyne,
John' Howbrook and Thos. Uphill, the
secretary, called on W. - It. Wilson,
general manager of the C. N P. Coal
Co. on Tuesday last,.',L The object of
ttie visit"; was' to, lay before Mr. Wilson' theh* views on the'subject of allowing diggers to work at Coal Creel-
on idle days. ■ They contended tba.t
this was unjust to the rest of the,
men^.a-s it,lessened their number of
shifts throughout the .month.. U.They
asked that diggers be not allowed to
work when all the men we're not working.' ; Mr. Wilson agreed with ttie.
speakers. He stated that their claims
were, just, that they hadV legitimate
complaint, ■ and that. he would take
steps to * remedy- such conditions as
much as possible. He would see that
only work that was necessary, such
as strictly development work; etc.,
would be permitted on- idle days. Incidentally, he also remarked that ■ he
believed, trade, would' improve in the
near future and' that .the outlook Is
brighter. The' deputation departed
well satisfied with the.result, of their
Interview.

severely criticized English parents,

much as slxponco weekly for pin

' She strongly advocatod tho emigration of glrln on a lnrgi. scnle, rnther

Thl Men Who Min£ Mi
' Whatever of beauty there is in the
landscape .disappears with the„estab-'
lishinent of a coal mine. Trees, flowers
green grass, waving corn, cleanliness
and decjency absent * themselves .in.
sheer inability to stay longer. Nature retires,,stricken.- The environ-v
ment is .thoroughly sordid and dirty.
Mountains of refuse spread themselves in barren offensiveness over .the
fertile earth, Infusing much, of, their
soullessness into the hearts " of ' the
people who are perforce obliged? to
jive, move and have their being in
the vicinity. 'Tis not surprising that
miners lost their memories in floods
of'beer.
The way leading into the mine cannot be described .as an entrance. " It
is rather a mere' track', worn down
by the heavy boots of the miners in
tlielr docile march morning and .evening. ' It fills with coal dust, which in
winter becomes a sticky blacky'paste.
It runs along'the railway side. The
railway MUST be properly made.
The colliers must find their own way.
The pit head becomes a scene of
ghostly activity on a winter's morning about six o'clock, and the bustle
lasts until seven or so. The hundreds
of rough-clad, pale-faced men who
move about in' the dim light of th«
gauze lamps are securing their "tokens," and hiding', away pipes anil
matches. They are waiting to descend
in batches of eight. The cavern of
darkness awaits them; the yawaing
monster which, while pretending to afford the means oMife, will finally de-.
vour them soul and body.
Down in the hovels, owned by the
boss, to whom rent must .be paid
weekly, the wife and' children stili
sleep. The mirier probably.. made
himself a cup of tea to wash down a
couple of slices of toast,- and, hurried
out. Thus * does he nourish him-"
self to face tbe icy blasts, of1 a winter's morn. He .trudges through' tlie
snow,' lost 'to happy memories and
quite unconscious-of his own power'
and' his lost inheritance. . The. silent

' Stumbling, falling, sometimes half
erect, sometimes crawling," we arrive
at" the actual scene of coal getting.
Some are on their knees, others prostrate. ' All are working with'a' kind
of despairing energy. ,At every stroke
a sound is emitted like a stifled bark.
Then they fall to shoveling, still keeping on their knees, they discharge
each shovelful in a peculiar manner
through their legs', when it is again
picked up by the menof burden. We
escape from the dense cloud of coal
dust, inconceivable to us as '.lit for
breathing for more than' ten minutes:
Besides the air is so scarce and, the
atmosphere so hot that it seems.unbearable. We say so, whereupon' the
confirmed coal'slave» smiles , wanly

By, dint of crawing through several manhole's; overhung by (to us) dan?
gerously loose earth, we, arrive at a
new "labor-saving" Idea.*0 It'Is "the
"iron man." It consists of a small
pair of coupled engines, air-driven,
from compressors at" the pithead. To'
it is attached ,by a simple mechanical
device of drum and. wire rope,. "the
wheel".'with alternating single and
double cutters. _These work night
and day. The wheel Hes horizontal
and revolves.slowly, as' It is-applied to
the bottom of the seam. A channel
is cut to'half the depth of" the wheel
and four inches wide. Certain kinds
of soft coal collapse simply when
thus undermined; others require blast-
ing. - But,- in any case, the output Is
many,, times "increased and men'are
dispensed with. The operator can-
dust-his master's affairs in a cloud
denser, thicker and more deadly than
his brother-.in bondage who useth. the
pick."' .But he works as hard. There'
is no remission of labor so long as

To the-.Editor,'* District Ledger:' -'
Dear Sir,—I beg space to make reply
to your correspondent of last week
who ' IS* evidently suffering ' Jroin • a
grouch. I refer to the gentleman' who
signB himself "Hunter'."*;
_. In his' letter the gentleman referred
to states that it is the intention of the
government to create a'game'reserve
on,Fording River. ,; Further, he goes
on to say .that I discouraged a petition
gotten' up for'the purpose of preventing the government from taking sucti
astep. - Tp-this I say'the' gentleman
is wrong.. ' In the first place" the government, has no intention of'creating
a reserve on Fording River,- nor did-
the' government at' any time" propose
to. inaugurate ..such a measure. , If
"Hunter;' took' the trouble to look a
little'.closer into this matter of game
reserves he would at once see that
a game reserve can only be established on government owned land. On
other lands .covered by coal licences,
or/otherwise held by corporations or
private owners, the government can
only declare a closed season for a stated length, of .time." 'v
In the latest report of the Provincial
Game Warden such.'a close season
was suggested for the Fording-River
district.7.'^-Ifrf "Hunter" will take" the
trouble to" read that report again ,he*
will, see* that,'I-am^ stating the exact

""Hunter" also speaks of the game

Just such a notice .flnds himself within

- "When we' declare for a living wage,'
declared Lovejoy, in a great speech to
the delegates and visitors who packed
every available space in'., the convention' hall,' "we challenge any citizen
to show wherein labor is entitled to
less than this. , 0We have merely registered our demand' that society shall
cease -to tolerate conditions that compel any man, as the reward for hard
and faithful work, to burrow, beneath
our social sub-cellar for a home. * The
demand for a living wage seems mod-
'est, but it is true that'the majority of
our workers are not getting this."
; Further "on* he gave expression 7 to
tnis beautiful sentiment:
"We''"declare that the aspirations
and idealism of youth shall not-be con-
fined within, factory walls, but'shall
bave the range of hills, the sweetness
of flowers,', the song of birds arid the
visionl of' stars, so that; however, exacting'the burdens of later life,- the
soul'of, the child may, preserve'the
divine image through -maturity." '    ■
After urging establishment of the
minimum wage commissions, Lovejoy
disposed of the objection that private
concerns,of industry would be invaded' with declaration ' that there are
no private concerns of industry, but
that' all, industry is social.
* And in giving "expression to that
statement Lovejoy struck a keynote
that rings as- true as steel. Industry
is social, and when once the people
accept" that great "scientific fact and
use it as the basis of their social life
the problems of poverty, crime, Insanity,- prostitution ■ and other social
diseases will gradually "disappear from
the earth.—Cleveland Citizen.

Budapest drenched with blood in a
Socialist rising because the Hungarians want universal suffrage, which
has been again and again promised
then.,' and again' and again denied. .
■i - ■ .   a
That is,the interpretation given by
the press of Europe, who point out
that, a fundamental constitutional principle thus underlies what might seem
merely a riot. ,,The electorate, as by
law established ih Hungary,* gives a
vote only to men-over twenty-six who
can pay a direct proportionate tax
to the Government on'their property
or income.*1-"'Those who,can not pay
the minimum.tax have no vote.- Certain large classes, however, 'professional, scientific, learned, and others,
are entitled to a vote "without paying
this tax,, which is regarded by the
Socialists and other parties as purchase-money extorted by the government for a privilege which should be
conceded to every free man. Count
Tisza is violently opposed to universal
suffrage. " In consequence of his recent appointment to the presidency of
the Chamber, popular rage and indignation were aroused und on May 23 a
general strike was ordored by the Budapest labor and Socialist organizations, and more,than- 60.000 laborers
dropped their {ools.and marched thro'
the streets shouting for ulversal suffrage. Thousands pt street lamps
were, broken, hundreds of- tram-cars
wrecked or burned and when the military appeared fighting became general, and fifteen dead were.left on the
field and several .hundred wounded.
The following statement' we quote
from'the London Times' Vienna cor-
rspondent as illustrating the cause of
Hungarian disturbance. The antecedents lie as far back as 1905, when'
the cry of universal suffrage was satis-
ed by the Fejervary cabinet as a sop
to Cerberus and a means of coercing tbe
anti-Tisza coalition to abandon its.policy of obstruction. ,To quote the
.words of the correspondent:. ' ■*
"The coalition, formed to-resist the
attempt of the Tiza. cabinet to overcome parliamentary obstruction by a
violent reforin of the standing orders,"
had overthrown Count' Tisza at" the
polls, but refused to take office save'
on. conditions derogatory to ,the,constitutional military prerogatives of
the Crown. - The Fejervary cabinet,
which succeeded that of Count Tisza,
th€n-proposed"that"the"-uliiereffces~be'
tween Crown and coalition be tried by
the ordeal of universal suffrage. The
idea was' welcomed by the Magyar
S-'orioMst and Labor Party," whjch or-
ganized  immense- des.oa'-.ra'ibns" iii "
itp'favor, and'by the non-Magyar'rac-'
es, whom. the restricted and tortuous
franchise  -practically   excludes from
parliamentary    representation.,,.   The
coalition felt the force of the movement and prepared to give way.,Count
Tisza, who detested the idea of universal suffrage even more than- he abhorred the coalition, hastened to denounce franchise reform as a mortal
p^ril to Magyar hegemony in Hungary,
peace with, the Crown, and took office'
In April,', 1906, the-coalition made its
on a program including universal suffrage, but contrived for nearly' four '
years to evade fulfilment of its pledge"?
'The   Khuen   Hedervary   cabinet-,*
formed   in   January,   1910,   likewise
pledged  itself to  universal  suffrige,-'
und  likewise broke its-engagement.'
lt laid instead before the Chamber an
Army Bill providing'for a two ye'ais'"
system, of military-service and for a-
r:oiresponding increase.in the annual
levy of recruits.     M. de Justh, lea„-'
er  o£ ? a  group of the Independence '
Party,- proclaimed  his  determination
not to tllow the Army Bill to pass un-
less_ a TMversal' Suffrage' Bill? were"
,gi\'eh precedence,to, or, at least, linked w'th - it. '   He and his followers
successfully obstructed the Army B:;i
for a twelve' month .and'incl'lei.aHv
overthrew Count Khuen > Hedervary.   -
."Dr. dc Lukacsnthe present Premiers-sought, on taking office, an understanding with JI de Justh, to whom,
he made proposals , on the. franchise"
question, which M. de Justh • rejected
as inadequate.    Count Tisza, the veritable leader of the Ministerial Party,'
then converted Dr. de Lukacs to moro
energetic-methods and procured   his
own   election   lo  the "Presidency  of
the Chamber." ' , "    *'
The unpopularity of',Tisza* and'his
alleged treachery as a slippery opposer '
of universal suffrage aro dealt with
by a prominent^ Hungarian  Socialist,''
Josef Diner-Denes In Vorwacrts (Berlin). .   He says that parties consider-,
ed irreconcilable' have united against
Tiszn.  ■ Even the followers of Kossuth, a prominent member of the aristocracy, have turned against a politician who stands for oligarcy. ' Butr
tae Fremden Blatt (Vienna) takes an
opposite view, and blames the obstructionists, .with their,cry of universal
suffrage, for a condition  "of   things
where bullets are used in.debate instead of --arguments.—Literary,,Digest.

EDUCATION AND UNREST
APECrLIAR situation is presented today as
. tho result of education to those who had come
to the conclusion that in order to make all men
happy, to banish class antagonism, all poverty,
wickedness and meanness, out of the world the
spread of education and culture'were the means of
accomplishing this desirable end.' According to
; a writer in the London (England) Daily Chronicle
the last great, Coal Strike in Great Britain is attributable indirectly, at least, to the growing practice of reading. This means that education is becoming a 'disturbing factor instead of a means of
pacifying the pe'ople. . The writer in question mentions the following authors' works that may be
1 found in the cottages of some of the "Welsh miners:
Karl Marx, Darwin, Adam Smith, Huxley,'Spencer,
■ -H. G. Wells and Bernard Shaw.' He concludes as
follows:,    , ■      -
"In fine, the coal miners's,little library repre-
\   sents'.thc active constructive literature of the past
0' and thc present^ because living the life he does, of
/incessant struggle with nature, he wants to know-
he wants to know." ■ _ c
Education means the enlightening of the und'er-
' standing, and. today; is presented to us in two'most
-characteristic * aspects—capitalist    teaching    arid
working-class teaching. -  It is the'spread of the
latter brand of education that is responsible for the
. unrest that is becoming daily,more evident and is
■* viewed with alarm by those who would have the
capitalist brand" of teaching prevail.   ' Between
'those two' there is clash of interests, but as the
.   working" class'basis is that of facts and experience
- strengthened by every advance made ih science the
■    outcome is riot difficult to perceive.,  A . ' A J '',   -
L'     The aim of the?capitalis't education is to make edu
cation a commodity, which is placed on the-market
i ^by-human^beings-for-the^purpose^of-^ineEeasing^oE,
""',' Of' late years, a. more* awakened social "conscience is beginning Ito^'assure lis that .wheti/a" human'
being fgoes under,' the'descent has not beeri'.aVmat-.
ter of, choice A;. Science has'proved the^eteriora-
tion of environment, and l_tiat.\inder*ce_Ham',ph3Tsii
cal conditions the individual'is' incapable of,^choice.
Tlie body may be so over^fatigued 6r"so underfed
that the will ceases to, act, and there is mere acquiescence in any-direction given, by .a'stronger'force
from Avithout." --.Everyone knows the)feeling 'Kwas
too tired to know what 1 was doing.'". Not all,
happily, have experienced—'I.was half starved and'
•did not know what! was doing?' 7. But we cannot,
shut our eyes to the.'fact'that much" of our young
Avonianhood is'experiencing just'such conditions
as produce these.feelings." - .    , .
Socialists, if ;tlie* reference to that exceedingly "indeterminate quantity—"the.social conscience"—;
is eliminated, will find little to'quarrel .with, in this
woman's remarks; but" to such an invincibly conservative, body, as tho'National Council of ."Women
they,will not be at "all welcome. Their class instincts will soon warn them that action'" to-remove
the,evil in accordance with the principle of economic determinism, as e'xprressed by Mrs? Hamilton,
entails an examination of the whole social structure,
the origin and reason fori the existence of poverty,
the basic evil, of which prostitution is but^one of the
side-shoots. Opposition can also be-expected from
the clergy, who have such an influence.over this
type of women,'and,who take such eloquent part
in these gatherings," on the ground that it strikes
against the doctrine of moral responsibility and-is
subversive of religion. ,' Nothing is to be expected
of these people but talk.-- '■ They belong to a' class
that profit by the present system of exploitation'
of laboiyand when they-find that an earnest investigation into the"causes of the degradation, of their
sex endangers,the parasitic existence they now-en-*
joy as the beneficiaries of'the system tliat"underpays and underfeeds other women, they--will quietly drop it. and.it will not 7be. considered ''good
form" to refer to'it. - It is from the combined ac-
tion of the men and women of the" international
working class alone that* deliverance will come, and
to accomplish .that'deliverance they will li'aye.io
meet, and overcome the hostility pf all classes, of
reformers; the National^ Council of Women among
them.  ".' . •   '

Moldenke, secretary of the American
Poundrymen's Association, and W. 6.
White ,of Uniontown, Pa., could not be

Mar. Hartman, in opening his paper
on by-product practice, gave ttte, credit
for the real inception of the by-product
coking industry'in the .United States
to" the Steel Corporation, which, four
years ago, had sent its coke committee
to Europe to investigate the various
types of by-product 4oven in use there,-
and tas a result of** that invsetigation
had installed 280 ovens "of the Koppers
type at Joliet—having since that .time
expended upward of $10,000,000 in-byproduct construction at Gary,- Ind., and
Corey, Ala. ' ' y? ' .
' "It may be truly said," continued the
speaker, "that, the results attained at
these' St'eelAcoTporation operations
have been'* the envy of America and
Europe., The1 by-product practice in
'America,* we are'free to admit, has'not

conservation . ■ of ,, America's fuel, but
mainly, by motives.of economy." <v"."'
The speaker flatly declared that the
1 roperly made by-product coke, under,
the newer processes, is today superior
to the best? bee-hive coke for foundry
and furnace'use; but he admitted .that

order that they,may compete with one another for
-food'and shelter, and their first care, is not the
development of their intellect," but the sale of it.
Capitalist education is stamped with the dollar
'mark, and to' remove the taint of profit from the
false conception of education is the work of the
working class. .
• The development of industry, with its - heartless
competition amongst men for a livelihood; has re-
suited in the .shattering of the idealism inculcated
into the minds pf thcyoung before entering this
bitter struggle.1 As a result of this the workers
haye been making use of the training afforded by
capitalist education and have been investigating ou
..their.own account     They have evolved a system
of philosophy which the capitalist intellectuals cannot shatter, seeing that it is based on tho material
.! facts of existence.    This philosophy, or science oC

operating railways or "driving teams: This policy
has been adopted in Great Britain and Prance/',,., .
This practice is becoming more, common andcon-
stitutes a fresh'factor which must be reckoned with
iri many* trades when the'question of striking is
being 'considered.
• In the United States the 'coal passers,'firemen,
water tender's and other employees on the ships of
the Panama R. R. Company are out as a part of the
general strike ariiorig the shipping employees of
Now York., This will, ho'wey'er, riot be permitted
to interfere with the work of the Panama Canal.
Acting Secretary "Winthorp promptly met the situation by deciding to fill all,places where employees
of'-the* Panama steamships struck with men of the
regular navy service. If enlisted men will allow
themselves to be used for scabbing purposes then
the last remnant'of a claim to. respectability will bo
gone aiid both branches' of _the service will be deserving of unmilga'ted contempt on the part of self-
respecting working men. »    '" _

discussed;'the paper from 'the standpoint of beehive oven coke operator.
He pointed out that the beehive oven
operator, had no means, of knowing
precisely the production of coke from a
beehive 'oven- per ton of coal charged;
h&" believed lt to be 64 to 66 per cent.
He declared the first cost of the byproduct oven to be from data ho had at
hand, 20 'to 30 times the cost of construction of a like capacity in behlve
plant. ' " He called 'attention to
the-fact that tho breaking up and sizing of coke for blast furnace use was
not a new thing ,ln Pittsburgh district. It had ben done by the Youngs-
town Stool Company long ago — 20
years ago, and an extraordinary quality of iron secured, Silica brick had

i. The courts of King county and?tbe
Seattle" press has^ for. the past mouth
been doing all in, their mighty power
to, increase and accelerate - the spirit
of class hatred- that, exists' in   this'
country, and to force it to open and violent revolt against the powers 6f govr
ernment.   -This is evidenced-, by' the
recent-lectures of the courts and.editorials of the newspapers on the question of the red flag. "     A '
: ..It Is -to be greatly lamented that
some 'misguided socialists and zealous
labor- leaders are about to fall into
this, trap that tho capitalist papers and
the capitalist courts have set for them.
. Nothing  will please the'capitalist
better and nothing   will serve   their
cause.more effectively than <to goa.l
and prod the workers to open violnece
that they may hav'e.nn excuse to set
in- operation1 the "whirlwind" of destruction   which   the   Seattle   Times
threateningly predicts will come when
the' collision' occurs. *  ,The* capitalists
are eager for, that clash.    They know
that they have sufficient power back
of them to "absolutely crush and annihilate any such an uprising.", And they
are not the only ones who know, that
fact.   The Socialists know it and they
are wise enough to refuse to please .the
rulers by precipitating and participating any such thing.     They know the.
folly and tetter failure of throwing their
bared breasts   and   uncovered heads
against the bayonets, bullets and billys
of the authorities.    They are positively, opposed to* the slightest show of
physical force or the minutestycts'of
violence.   "Such acts are'anarchistic
and the Socialist movement- is the one-
organization in the world that stands
y "•- **'___     * -        ■     ■ ■    i
unequivocally 4 and   uncompromisingly
opposed to anarchy in any form. The
Socialist movement stands' arid has always stood for a'change of the political
and industrial form of society, which in
fact, is a'revolution, but it most emphatically maintains that' such a revolution must come about by peaceful
methods. .It"purposes to accomplish
this end by educating the exploite-i
class to the .fact that such a .change
of society will be to their economic interest, ' and when it has convinced a
majority off them of that fact it expects
them to walk to the-polls and vote for
that,change-"' The present constitution of the United States, obsolete and
fossilized though it is, gives us that
right. There can be no valid or con>
sistent-cb^ection—io^a—change—when—a
majority of the voters demand it.
The Socialist movement has been
accused' of standing for violence and
force, destruction of the home and -the
disregard of the, family tie,* and many
other things that are too ridiculous to
merit serious . consideration. Such
charges are farfetched and positively
false and without the slightest foundation in fact. They .constitute a straw
man set ujf for the purpose of being
knocked down. That is the only kind
of a man our opponents- can knock
down. They cannot knock the real Socialist man down. The Socialist philosophy Is'absolutely invulnerable to
any and\ll attacks no matter by whom
or how made.
The Socialist movement stands
strongly and.unimpcachably for nil the
highest and best and pureBt o£ any
systom of society.'. < Thoy -recognize
that thoro'ar© many institutions of tho
present system1 that will be IndiBpens-
iblo undor tho Socialistic system and
they desire to preserve and perpetuate
all that is good of our present society
and pass it oh down to posterity.-
Wny of,the-ae Institutions"avo effected
by our economic Interest ao that wo
do not now got tho host out of thorn,
One's religion, his marringo relation
nnd his morals is inrgely influenced by
his oconomlo interest as it is today,
Tho Socialist would make nil men economically froo no .that- thoy will bo at
liberty to got out of thoir social rela-
tions, tholr mnrital relations, tholr' ro-'
llglous relations, all that Is host, highest and purest,
Socialists Would Make Laws In the
Interest of the Working CIbbb
Whllo thoro are many laws which
Socialists bollovo to bo inimical to tho
bost interests of socloty and thoy do
not llko to obey thoso laws—but thoy
do obey thorn. Thoy do It bocaus'o
thoy stand for law and ordor and tho
recognition of authority. Thoy would
soak to repeal, chnngo or nbolUli such

methods, This thoy cannot do until
they get control of tho powers of gov'

When'the Socialists sweep1 this nation, there is no doubt that.,the Ameri-

The suffragist; movement., has seen
fit to adopt the yellow flag;,the temperance movement, the .white flag and
tho Socialist movement the red flag.
The latter* have not appropriated - the
red flag as'a symbol of blood-shed ard
destruction but have adopted it as re-'
presenting the redness—same, quality
—of all human blood. They do not use
it to supplant other flags but-as the
emblem of.a movement which"h.is for-
its end the removal of. corruption, injustice, inequality, robbery-, and- graft-1

FERNIE NO LONGER COAL CAMP
'BUT IS EMBRYO CITY
Foniie. the' one-time   "coal   camp,"
which Avas destroyed by fire In 190-3,
is now taking on metropolitan airs
and lt no longer resembles the accepted appearance of a coal mining
town, but of an ..embryo city, according   to   Mr. S. W. Barclay,   former
city dork to Fernie    Mr Barclay is
at tho Dunsmuir Hotel en route to Vic-,
torla, whero he goes to tako up his
new, duties in the accountancy branch
of the recently-organized forestry deportment of tho provincial govornmont,
"Ond ■ could scarcely   believe   that
only   a   fow yoars ngo Fernio   was
practically destroyed   by   flro,"  snld
Mr. Barclay.    Tho city has built up
more solidly than ovor. With the grow-,
Inp population of that portion ot British Columbia, now fields of enterprise
havo boon opened up and Fernio Is
tho contro for those.   In consequence
Fornlo Is not any moro merely,a coal
mining camp, but it has advantages
of location which "mnko It tho commercial centre for Its district.
"Tho stores which tho flro destroyed, also tho hotels," ho continued,
"hnvo boon built up bettor than ovor,
and some of thc buildings aro decidedly nrotentlouH structures that would
doVrodlt to n muoh larger plnco. BuhI-
noBB.morraro thriving ns thoy novor

Fornlo hn» ronchod Its stride and will
contlnuo lo grow surprisingly,"—Vnn-
