demanded" a suspension of the sitting,

Tisza had definitely announced his'attitude when he'sald:' "Evenvif'fifty
persons are shot down in' .his hall, I
shall not Bitspend the sitting-?" \

house adjourned.

workmen waited on Premier Lukacs
and offered^to stop' the rioting if the

ed that'he could bnly permit an Indoor
meeting. ' Thereupon'Count Apponyl

will provoke extreme measures on the

The manifesto was due to the fact;
that throughout the. day hundreds of

TheSOCIALIST
A BIT OF HISTORY—By ROBERT HUNTER
A, VI.—THE INTERNATIONAL
SOCIALIST POSITION
At the International Socialist Congress held at Stuttgart iii 1907 the relation between. Sc.cialist parties a-'d
trade unions came up for discussi..::.
At the outset I will ask Americans:
' to bear in mind .that most of the men
who discussed this question wore
actual trade unionists. Some of them
were among the highest officials in
the trade union movement of Europe.
I mention this fact only because the
two Americans who took part in the
discussion had no trade union standing, both being editors of Socialist
papers, and tbat mighe convey to American readers the impression that the
discussion at Stuttgart was not representative of the, actual trade, union
movement.
0 The Belgians pressed a resolution
which declared the- necessity of an
absolute unity of thought and action
between these two organizations of the
working class. They were of the opinion that unity of action ls only possible where the various organizations
are actually federated together.
The Austrlans pressed- a" different
resolution, which declared that the Socialist party and the xinions should
■■ preserve their complete autonomy, but
, - that association and co-operation between the two movements should be
of the closest ppssible character.
In Belgium the party,   the ■ co-op
,  eratives and the unions are ..actually
' -  members of one organization.   There
Is autonomy in tliis sense only; that
whatever solely   concerns    the'" cooperatives is decided by the co-operatives; - whatever solely concerns the
unions is decided by the unions; whatever solely concerns the party is <le-
, cided by thc party.
Beer, of Austria, in moving the resolution of that country, declared ' that
the close relation which existed between the trade unions and the party
iri this' country was assured by the
fact that the leaders of- the unions
"> and the leaders of the party were the
same men. He. believed that the two
.. movements should be .organized separately, and he opposed fusion between them. The party and the unions should be considered equally inv
portant and - should. have  the  same
, rights. Neither the one nor the oUier"
should ■ endeavor to be supreme. The
unions would be injured if they were
to subordinate themselves to, the party
- and would become merely organizations for political propaganda. ■ They
would then abandon their chief work,
which is to ameliorate the Immediate
material condition of the working
class.      ...
,. (Tho FVonch also introduced a reso:
lutlon which,declared that tho trade
, unions and the Socialist parties should
be completely separate and, preserve
fully their autonomy. A minority of
the French party introduced an opposing resolution which declared that
the unions and the party should 'join
together nationally and international-
De Leon, in. the namo of the Industrial Workers of the World and of
the S, L. P., moved a rospjutlon declaring, that the industrial union ls the
germ ofithe republic of labor, 'Tho
resolution'cj.ri(lmoned the craft unions
of tho Ambrlcan Fedornlton of Labor, which "took tholr, orders from the
groat capitalists." Tho resolution also
declared that any really revolutionary
Soclnllst movement   should    include
both trade unions and political parties?   '  \-    ~
Schmidt supported the Austrian resolution, saying that while the unions
and the party in Germany were distinct, yet" they did-not oppose each
other. He declared, that the closest
possible union should exist between-
these two organizations, but1 that the
party should not attempt to dictate
to the unions'their policies.
Olsen, of Denmark, said that one of
the characteristics of the Danish system is that the Executive Committee of the party sends two representatives' to the governing body of the unions, and two.-delegates of, the union
sit ln the governing body of the party.
By "virtue of this arrangement cooperation between the party and the
unions is complete, He was not sure
that tho same system would.work well
elsewhere, but in Denmark lt" makes
impossible any misunderstanding.
Premoli, of Italy, declared, that in
Italy, they had. attempted to unite the
unions and the party," but thoy had
found it wiser to follow the German
plan of having distinct organizations.
The trade unions should remain open
to all, without distinction of party.
Legien, of Germany, declared that
the two movements, the party and the
unions arose from the working class.
"Why, then, should they' not help each
other? Both pursue certain ends, and
consequently they must possess auto?
nomy. We cannot admit that the unions and the party should fight each
other? If this situation exists in
France, it is because neither the party
nor the unions*there are well organized. The French Comrades are, accustomed to say: We have no organization, but we have the temperament.
It is not with temperament that one
fights the capitalist class. As soon
as the French have a real trade union
organization they will stop* discussing
the general strike, direqt action and
sabotage.* It is not with' rhetoric that
one fights,the capitalist class,'but by
the organization of the workers,- following .the same end and struggling
together." - -•*■',
De Brouekere,- of. Belgium, protested against the statement which
had been'made-that, the unions'in
Belgium were considered subordinate
to the party, and declared that from
~tl-en)lrt__^rtliTparty^th¥lradO_rions
had constituted such a majority-in tho
governing body that they had always
controlled the party,,and not the party
the unions. "It is not exact to say
that1 we ■ wish-fusion -between the unions and - the party. Our trade unions have complete autonomy in their
own field."
Simons, of tho Socialist party of the
United States,'then disputed'some of
the statements' of Do^Leon and condemned the policy of,the Socialist Labor party, which had fomented dissension, ln the trade' union movement.
"Our party refuses to, capture the
union because it considers that the
party and the the unions aro two sections of a single army.". He supported the resolution of Austria,
LIndblad, ot Sweden, declared that
In S wed on the trado unions and tho,
party llvo ln perfect accord. „ Thero
is there no division In the proletariat.
Historically, tho party wns born first;
and it (hen organized the unions. But
tho unlonB have tholr' own organization. Thoy havo complete autonomy,
although nearly nil tho members of
tho union belong to thc Socialist
pnrty.
Nemec, of Bohemia,, declared that
in his country there was a most intimate and friendly ' relatfon between
the' two organizations.
' Plechanoff, of Russia, .spoke against
the organic union between the party
and the unions." He said that in Russia such a union would mean that the
trade unions,.would be cut into fifteen
helpless parts. Ho thought, therefore,
for the time being that the trade- unions of Russia should not indorse any
political party.
This discussion took place before a
special committee, ., which finally
adopted the Austrian resolution with
some > amendments.^ It was then
brought before the-entire Congress.
"If it is necessary," said the chairman
(Beer, of Austria), "to declare that the
trade union tmov<-ment should conserve'its autonomy, It ls equally necessary to say that the party and the
unions.should'supplement each other.
The leaders of the unions should sit
In the governing body of the party and
vice versa. In this manner, the necessary contact takes place, < contact
which prevents misunderstandings
from arising and,avoids useless=dis-
cussion.' Nevertheless,'If discussions
should take place between ■ the party
and the ■ trade unions, these debates
ought always to ben conducted in "the
spirit of fraternity and solidarity.'' All
the nationalities have signed our text
with the .exception of a tiny group
from the United tSates. If we desire; and if -we ought to desire," he
continued, "that the relation'between
the party afid the trade unions should
be the mos^ intimate possible, we do
not desire that the establishment''or
re-establishment of these relations
should provoke a division in the trade
union movement-
""The members of any craft should
belong to' a single union. Rival"organizations are an abomination. One
must then'demand the unification and
the centralization of the trade union
movement." And the first condition
of the success of the trade unions
is their unification. To succeed, the
unions must be strong arid,the,more
the Socialist .party tries to prevent
misunderstandings the more it-, will
aid the; unions; and the riiore it will
render, a service in the struggles of
the working class."
"I^"I^)nyprotMt¥d-agai__sr^EhlTdiF
dain with, which' the chairman, .Beer,
had treated him. "He has completely
ignored our resolution,';, said De Leon,
"he "has not even wished to discuss
it?'" A»___fter -again*. condemning!"the
"capitalist" unions of America, he declared that one could only erect really Socialist politics upon unions really
Socialist.
, De Brouchere,- of Belgium, declared
De Leon's motion to be dangerous. "It
would seem to have the Congress declare that the-Socialist parties should
fight the unions,* which would-be contrary to their, practice ■ and to their
Intentions. It must bo,.well understood .that the' relation which we'propose Ib a voluntary relation, Wo wish
marriage, not rape." ■ ,
Valllant then traced tho recent history of Franco; which had led to tho
111-feollng between the Socialist party
and the trade unions. , He declared
that when tho unlonB had affiliated
with, ono or' tho other of tho Fronch
'wiles, unity among thorn was Impossible, The French Federation of
Labor had acted rightly, ho thought,
in declaring that politics should be
kept out of tho unions.   "Wo respect

We see;.therefore,- that, the policy
."adopted~hy the, Socialist' party 'of
America is in accord with" ttiat'of the
international-movement. <■' If the'relations , of the. Socialist party "and the
trade.-unions, of America• are .today
less -Intimate than those' of "Europe.
It.Is- duo] more to the peculiar conditions existing here than to : any fault
that might be In the pbsttion taken by
the, Socialist* party.. In time the unions and' the party , in America. will
confer .together on" every important
matter; but this personal union will
come voluntarily, as a marriage,' not
as a forced union. 7 When the party
comes to be recognized as the political
expression of the working claBS, much
as the unions are recognized as the
industrial expression, nothing , but
harmony' and co-operative action will
be tolerated by the workers.

Sir A. B. Markham, M.P., on the Coal
■ Strike—Only the' Beginning..
Dealing with the coal strike in the
new* number of the "Quarterly. Review," Sir A." B. Mara'nam, M.P., says,
It is idle to deny that the men have
suffered.defeat, .but'that defeat has
been due -mainly to mistakes and ignorance on the part of the .leaders, and
to a lack "of subordination and unity
of purpose on the -part of the men.
The ground of attack was ill-chosen;
the men should have stuck to their
original demand—the payment on account of abnormal places or losses due
to bad management.
If,-in addition to this^ they"had
asked for an'increase of wages equivalent to 10 per cent on the basis
rates, to .meet the increased cost of
living, they would have occupied
strong "ground;, and, if they had won
(as they probably would, for the demand would have been obviously just)
every man** would have benefited,
whereas very few. will derive any bene
fit from the^Act.

MAYOR SHANKS'      f.
/ ; CONDEMNS POLICE ORDER
' INDIANAPOLIS, May 25. — Mayor
Shank of Indianpolis was very indignant when he heard of- the red flag
order of the* chief of police. ' He said
taat the* Socialists or any one else had
the same right*to carry the red flag
as a man'has to wear a crimson shift.

have been made in such a manner
, The miners and their.'leaders, in
fact, entirely misconceived the position. The miners were told by some
of tholr le'aderB that a national strike
could not possibly continue for more
than a week, and that a general strike
was. the panacea which' would put a
speedy end to all 'their grievances.
They had,' however,' entirely lost
sight first, of the fact that the past
.winter was an exceptionally mind one;
and, secondly, that Instead of working Bhort time, as thoy would undor
normal conditions havo done, tho pits
wore, owing to _ho fear of a strike,
kept working to thoir utmost capacity,
so that enormous reserves of coal woro
accumulated,

AA.  .  ,THE WATERAGE ?*y' 7
'• The United States Is passing rapidly, from an agricultural country; to an
"industrial-, one, and "thiSitransitljpiijis
accompanied by a; large Increase7ln
power consumption and an. enormous
"drain,,- on. the fuel, resources of 'the?
country.     In 1900 (says' an'-article in
Scribner's Magazine;? entitled "Water
Power in Industrial Life")    the . coal
mined in the United States was approximately 270.000,000 tons.- ..In'.1910,,U
was over 500,000,000 tons,'? an Increase
of 85 per cent, being accompanied by
an increase in population'of.'approximately 20 per cent.    This .doubling
iri the.output of coal over?a decade
hasrbeen the rate of growth! for'some
time, and if continued the 'extinction
of our known coal deposits'will - be a
question of a comparatively few years.
The cost of miriing coal is Increasing
every year; and will probably continue
to do so, even with the improvements
in methods.   Due to the improvements
In'generating "machinery, the efficiency
of utilising the coal for power purposes is constantly being increased,
but a natural limit' is being approached.  It is evident without further argument, that the'interests of the people
demand a rapid development of all the
water powers which will in any way
tend to decrease the coal consumption.
It. has been estimated by the  Geological Survey-that the available water
power of the"United:States at minimum flow Is approximately 36,000,000
horse-power, and that this can be increased five or six times by suitable
storage facilities.    A recent report by
Commissioner  Herbert  Knox   Smith
states .that, 6,000,000 horse-power, has
been developed in the United States
for electrical,and other industrial purposes. ,, ..Before the perfection of else-'
trical apparatus and^ the possibilities
of pi wer transmission, it was neces-
sar . tc utilise the water power at the
poiut nf .'development, arid this'reachod
its' greatest, application in the mills of
New England?' The* possibility of developing the,water power at the point
where it exists',' but of utilizing the
power at the places of. greatest con-
venience/v has been brought about by
the^'use "of .electricity, and this, has
Ken an important feature in modern
industrial undertakings.     Of all tne
great, transmission systems in this or
any other country,1" however, tlmt centering around San. Francisco stands
pre-eminent in the?number of stations
feeding into the one syBtem, and -, In
the very large numbers of miles of the
high" tension transmission.   The high
cost of fuel in this* part of the country
■bfo'ught"VD"out""the~very?¥arIy~develop-"
ment of some.of the water powers, and
for a'long time the history of electric
power transmission in the United Stat
es- was largely made .up of that of" the
companies ceatering'around Sari Fran-'
cisco. .The developments .which'started- with the' Nevada' County and? the
Yuba. River plants changed later,into
the Bay Counties System; then into
the California Gas and Electric" Corporation, and now, .with the absorption-of the local lighting company i-i
San Francisco, into "the great corporation known as the Pacific Gas
arid Electric. Company, which is .the
greatest hydro-electric transmission
system in existence*. • On this system will be found the milestone which
marked* the progress of-the?development, of the art, and it is interesting
to .note that in, many of the stations
the inductor alterriator.now a practically obsolete.type of machine in this
country, is still to be found, -. In-addition to the great system of the Pacific Gas and Electric Company, there
are two powerful enterprises;' the
Great Western Power Company and
th8 Sierra and San Francisco Power
Company, which feed into the same
pewer market, and which one might
naturally expect would at some future
all be consolidated into one big system: The. Pacific Gas arid Electric
Company, which is tho best illustration of a large transmission system,
has .installed in water-power plants a
capacity of 93,000 horse-power, and in
steam plants, about 96,000 horse-power
on the entire system. The water storage of these plants for both power,
and-irrigation would be sufficient to
supply the city of Sari Francisco with
water for two years. ■ There are over
650 miles of ditches and flumes, and.
nearly, thirteen miles of pipe-line.
Fiftyrone electric generators supply
the energy delivered to the overhead
wires,;being driven by water wheels,
steam turbines, and engines.

When'Great Britain was iri the
throes of her mighty coal strike and
starvation . and ruin began to stalk
over the land Sir William Ramsay, the
distinguishel' scientist' emerged suddenly, from.-the silence of his labra-
,tory_ and'assuming the rolo of "Job's
Comforter" startled his countrymen
with.* the announcement that in the
future the coal fields would be worked
without miners, o ' - "
The .way this transformation Avas to
be effected was by putting a bore-hole
to ttie coal seam, by electrically firing
the coal and by collecting the gas as
it came up from the bore. . 7
Sir William claimed .that in this
way thirty per cent of the therrhal
efficiency of the coal might be utilized
as against some 10 "per cent when coal
burned ln a furnace. ,     .
", The scheme could, of course, halve
no effect'upon the strike, but it excit-.
ed considerable discussion, It was a
problems of the more or less remote
futunS so neither the colliery proprietors nor the miners lost much sleep
thinking about it.       •   ?
. Since the strike has passed Into history mining engineers have taken the
matter up with some earnestness and
as far as one, may'judge from the
views they have expressed they are
not greatly impressed as to its practicability..,  A
It is a great pity that a scientist of
eminence should lend himself to this
kind of nonsense, said a practical en.-'
gineer in discussing the matter, and
his views was echoed substantially by
others.
"With what is Sir' William Ramsay
going to line his borehole which-will
stand for rnay days the enormous heat
of a burning.'coal seam?" was one of
the first questions asked.
' Notliing of -.which the ordinary engineer has'a,conception would long
stand the furnace which would be
created in"the! bowels of ^ ttie earth?
But that is the least of the objections
which are put forward. For success
to be - * achieved _ practically every
known-' condition 'of the coal, field
would have to ;be miraculously changed.- "As soon? as the coal commenced
to burn.tliere would be an accumu:
lating mass of coKe, broken stone and
;debJfi8^^t~tfi^l^ttom^f^HeTEftr
would', fall..'ana  floors  would
would be'small there "would exist no
means of going down and ascertaining
what 'was wrong.-. ' The heat would
give rise to convulsions of every kind.
Nor would there be the slightest guarantee that the gas produced would
ascend by the bore.
. The' great ' probability is that a
lars.e part - of it would pass into' fissures in-the earth and be lost, or accumulate in some pocket until there
was sufficient air to produce ''an explosive mixture which' in one grand
outburst would end the whole expert-
mci.f,      - , >
Tlie posslblo troubles would not end
there.
"How are you going to deal with
water?" asks the mining engineer. -
.   Water in huge quantities is present
in most mines.     As soon as a space
was created by tho burning' away of
a portion of the coal water would leak
down on to the furnace, huge quantities of steam would be generated, "and
it would not.be long before there was
an eruption.     "Sir William Ramsay
would add to the sensation of the country a daily experience of earthquakes
and volcanic    outbreaks on a small
scale," remarked the engineer, "unless
as is more than likely^the water came
in such quantities as to extinguish altogether the fire he had lighted,"   To,
get the gas, in other words, new bores
would have.tp be driven as fast as the
old ones, were destroyed or cut off
from the gas by the innumerable acci-
dets which would be happening in the
inferno beneath the, surface.       ' .
.. Supposing all these difficulties could
be- overcome, and nobody with practical knowledge will admit that they
can,-there remains the-economic ob-,
jection that it would always pay. better to get the "coal in the ordinary
way.'    Sir William.  Ramsay's   -plan
might draw off the gas and some of
the residual products, but   it   would
leave the coke underground. It would
abandon, that is to say, the most valuable fuel for J metallurgical, purposes.
As for .the suggestion that, thirty per
cent- of the thermal value of the coal
could be got by using the gas, there
Ib no reason ^whatever why a~ higher
percentage should not. be   obtained
from coal brought to the surface.:- The
actly the same position as the Chinaman, who burned down his house to
obtain roast pig.* There is no reason
whatever, except the fact that coal
lias been a'-'cheap fuel,.whyJt.'.should
be wastefully employed, and nine- -
tenth's of its heating?Value'-'lost..=*The
processes for the fuller, utilization of
its" power are all in active operation,
and can be extended to'deal with the,
whole of, the, coal .whenever economic
pressure demands more care in con-
suiription." Gas caii be used in gas
engines,- residual oils in oil- engines,'
and,, coke in furnaces. Sir William
Ramsay, proposes ay most wasteful
method of obtaining the gas, The
coal mine worked in the ordinary way
could always be made more -profitable
than his furnace in the bowels of the
earth?' even on the supposition;' which
is not remotely probable, that . any
quantity of gas could be got In such
a way.

IMMIGRATION? INTO   CANADA'
THE   LABOR  UNREST
THE capitalist class of all countries are now beginning to wonder if the workers haveat last
. thrown off their accustomed apathy andif they are
now iii,earnest.1'    The apologists of the system
have certainly done their utmost to -draw the attention of the workers to tlie defects of their old
weapon the strike, and it would seem that their .la-
. hors have been in vain, especially is this the case in
Great Britain.    The repeated failures of sectional
strikes has only served to increase the hopes of the
workers in the general strike, and the failure of
labor representatives in the House of-Commons to
do anything of benefit to them has strengthened
their faith in tliis method of attacking capitalism.
The conditions under which the vast majority of
the working class live in,,"Christian England"-is
at last galling them to such an extent that they
seem willing to adopt any means that promise an
overthrow of the present - system of'production.
That these conditions produce, a bitterness of feel-;
ing against the capitalists is not at all unnatural,?
and should serve to enlighten those in this Western
Country.who fail to see the folly of.attempting
to suppress the propaganda of-working class political action.   The present system of production bears
within itself the germ bf its own destruction, and
emphasises the importance of the-working" class
■ being sufficiently educated to take control at the
* critical moment.    Capitalism must "develop and the
workers have to take a hand'in their own interests
and see that their emancipation is accomplished,
^ as quickly as possible, and now is "surely the time to
get in effective work to this end.
,.  The fears of revolution are,being expressed in
Grat Britain,'and""Lloyd. George is credited with
having said that ''anxiety has been expressed1 that
. the structure of society may break'down under the
- increasing-strain of the;wage movement:    But it

"competition is the,the life of-trade" so far as
they' are concerned, having 'discoveredHhaV it-;is?
the death of the small trader, and too wasteful and;
expensive for the large•' one?' **' The;y -still' insist,
however, that it shall hold, good'for the labor mar-?
ket, and while demanding protection for the sale
of their own commodities, take care" that absolute
free trade shall prevail in the traffic,ih labor pow-.
eiy *What kind'of' a-howl would they, put up" if a
Socialist party, holding the rein_r of government, it
was decreed that the articles of prime.necessity,
such as clothing, boots, and food stuffs, should be
admitted free of duty in order to relieve the scarcity"
of those commodities among the -work-fag class
by forcing prices down?    The vilest words in tlieir
vocabulary would be inadequate to express their
opinion of such "class legislation," yet this policy
of government subsidy of immigration is exactly on
all fours- wth that proposition. * Labor power is
the commodity they buy, "and* the only ..thing that
the working class has to sell. ' They sell the goods
produced by the utilization of that power, and demand a protected market, and take' care that the
sellers of labor-power auction their commodity off
in competition wth the whole world.    ,Thoy can do
it .because they have the power—political power,
ownership of the governing power—to do it. . That
power is delegated to,them by.the workers, in ignorance.    When'the latter get as class-conscious as
their masters they will not part with that power,
but will use it to remove   labor-power.from the
list of commodities, and,substitute production for
use for the present mode .of production for-profit;
Then the' labor'market will have ceased to exist,
and men, women and children will not have to sell
themselves in any market, competitive or otherwise. ,   '       ,   «,*.      "    .''    7        *"'"   '""-*-

Minimum Wage Act.     The workers how want a
place in' the situation.     They are now • hot only
reading newspapers, but even books on economics.
.It is'the knowledge that makes the difference?"
■ 'This is the utterance of a Liberal member of the
■British House of Commons, and stands in strong
contrast with the attitude of Claude Lowther, a
.Tory M.P., who suggests compulsory arbitaration.
-However, the solution of the difficulty does.not lay
-•in the hands of such gentlemen, but is for thc working class thomiselves to decide.    In knowledge lays
tlieir power, and it is quite evident that there are
manyin tho ranks of the workers who are nt last
realizing thiR great fact.    That the general strike
is the most successful method of accomplishing tho
desired end of the workers is somewhat doubtful,
but at any rate it will have the effect of arousing
the dormant power of the workers and directing
thoir energy with renewed vigor.  , Tho suffering
entailed by a national striko is one of the greatest
factors against which organized labor has to contend nnd it iH always the members of thc working
class who feel most keenly tho results of the conditions resulting from these tactics.    Still it serves
to accontuato tho common intorest of tho workers
in tho overthrow of a system which permits a small
minority to dominate their livelihood with the co-
operaton of those of their class enlisted ns uniform-
'ed HHsasNinH in tho protection of such privileges,
All those fights between tho workers and tho capitalists nerves to show that these troubles arc eventually thrown into the political arena to bo dealt willi
by tho executive committee of the ruling class, who
see to it that the rights of proporty are duly pro-
tooted by tho powers of the stato.     Tho workers
linvo not control of tho stato and it is up to tho
working cIiihh to capture, Ibis powor in their own
ii.torostN, realizing that 'tliey must combine, their
strength on both tho industrial nnd political fid.
that their triumph may bo complete.
Not only in Great Brltnin is tho working cIhkh
movomont taking on nn aggressive attitude but all
over J.iiropo tho flnmcs of discontent aro spreiuliug
nnd "no compromise" is becoming tho watchword
of the workers nil tho world over. Tho intoivs's
of the workers in all count rien under capitalist
domination nro tlio same, and tho discontent in ono
country has its effect on tho ideas of workers in
other countries, and'it is this inter-rclnton that nc-

and ijpnn this question depends to a grear. patent
tho peaceful inauguration of the Co-operative Com-
mnnvrWltli. It is well'thnt those who nro so nnxi-i

The anti-Socialists-of Fernie do not seem to have
got very well posted from Father Donnelly's lec-
,tur^ on Socialism^ at least they do mot seem to have
absorbed any telling* arguments. Perhaps their
.memory is at fault and they are now* getting ready
to^uote ','by the book." 7 • -
It may be consoling to-the-workers to know that
TireTTSletfiodistsyih ^convention have been passing
resolutions for their benefit, but it is also a peculiar thing that when they get to the ballot box later
ori the workers', representative gets very little support from them.'; How tliey anticipate securing
the reforms simply by passing resolutions it would
be interesting to know.
A certain paper in the Kootenay generously conceded the privilege of-devoting space to an.article
by a prominent English Socialist, and in tlie introductory remark? took pains to.inform thoir readers
that this was the limit of generosity to bo extended
to • this question. The' possibility, of further demands on the space of this paper for this momentous question must have caused somo alarm to this
educational medium of the, working class (?)      ■
Tho wago increase granted to tho anthracite
miners in tho United States! has' been offset by-a
raise of 25c. per ton to tho consumer of fuol. Tho
coal operators believe in tho conservation of their
shnrc of the surplus valuo created by labor, and
when once thc workers realize that nil wage adjustments simply affect tho exchange valuo of thoir
commodity—"labor power"—then thoy will devote a littlo more attention to an equitable adjustment of this surplus value.
It is admitted that Mr, Green, our Conservative
member elect for tho Kootenay District, is a man
both unsuitable and not in tho best interests of tho
community nn a wholo to rcprosont tho electors nt
Ottawa, This has been admitted by tho moro independent of tho Conservative Press, and in many
instances his nomination has boon protested by
staunch Conservative leaders, but wo «do these
same men go down to tho convention and whon it
was found that Green had reooivod the nomination
instend of voicing their protest mado it utinnimous,
Tliis was considered in tho interests of their party,
and only goes to show that principle in a matter
of this kind is n vory secondary com.d-.ri.Hon, Further, Jlr. Green, as a.member of tho McBrido
Cabinet wns mentioned in connection with many
unsavory maltors, nnd in fnct it is openly stntod
hu hml to get out of tho ministry. It would seem
thnt tho "mnchino" hnd to hnnd him n sop so went

as cooked lean meat, chopped fine and
given alternate] days'at noon. This
should* be given very sparingly' "'at
first, just a few picks each, and increased as the chicks grow older.* (
A little is highly beneficial, but too
much will'soon cause looseness of ttie
bowels, therefore the condition of the
chick's droppings should be your guide
as to the quantity required. Should
there be any signs of diarrhoea, leave
off the animal food, and feed mostly
on the oatmeal mixed with milk, and
bread and niilk alternately.
,' At' a fortnight old the .last feed,
which should.be given as'late as possible, should,be small wheat, or broken wheat arid brown'groat&^-not the
floury groat's, as the latter are not
good for the chlcks-^-or else a good
brand of dry chick food. Where chicks
are kept lri confined runs* and are riot
allowed access to,grass, they should
have a liberal,,supply'of grass, .cut
very fine, or lettuce, but do riot thro v
down too much at a time, only sufficient for each feed, otherwise it will
"become tainted by' being. trodden on,
and?do inoreharm than good. At this

continued.      ■     \      ■"•
At the _-go of four weeks the feeding
cnn be reduced to five times daily,
and the rice omitted from-the-diet,'
but as the.chicks are then growing
fast arid making'bone it ls important'
that: they should be fed with good
sound grain as late as possible .- at
night,*'as this wilbsustain them much-
longer than soft food.
.. Where.size and bone are the essential" qualities required, and where 'the
chicks are" inclined to show sign's of
leg weakness,'-'a .little bone ' meal
should be added to the softwood once
a day,-and fresh green bones ground.

May 24th passed off very quietly in
Hosmer.. A good number'of the boys
took-in the sports at Bllco. and some
of them-'were disappointed at there
being no foot races to. take part "in.
A-few* went to see the sports at Cranbrook' and reiport a'very.enjoyable day.
Whilst the footballers 7 .visited Coal
Creek and got the cold shoulder—four
goals , tp nothing, and not even an
orange (pr..part,'of\one) at half,time!"
(Oh, dear;-some people do expect such
a wonderful lot* of attention!)    '
Mr? Ralph Smith is paying a'business .visit to-his ranch" in the Windermere Valley this' week. '
. It is reported" that Bob -McTaggart,
who is now working on-a prospect up
the'Elk-Valley has ..shot one of'the
finest specimens of a bear (silver tip)
that has been killed, in East;K6ote'nay
of late years', the hide measuring up-"
wards of 9 feet from tip to tip. 1 '    '"
Arthur Wight. (Jumbo> has quit the
government road job and Joined the

' Negotiations are being made by the
authorities, of Stanley Park, Vancouver,* for/the purchase'of the young
grizzley caught by Louis Severairer

Sydney. Hopkins, late manager' of

men throughout the length and breadth of the'country ..ah assist one another by purchasing union made goods
and having nothing else, thereby cutting out"the prison-made- goods. . It
certainly requires a5 bit of a^rub up in
this city for the majority of the workers'seem'.to be getting regardless or
rather careless how' things go as long
as'they get workjyA " ' -..
At-present the "bricklayers 'are
threatening "to-strike, in fact, some
have already quit for an Increase^ of
wages from 67% to 75 cents per hour.
The general,impression is'they-are
bound to'win. One feature about them
as far as I can'learn "iB rather selfish.
I understand last year bricklayers' laborers had 35 cents per,hour, and at
the present "time they are being paid
25c. per hour. If ' such is the case
then I say there Jsn't much of the union
principle amongst them, or certainly
they would look after their assistants
and give them a chanceiof a fair day's
wage also.       '. ,
' Both^ mines of the' A. R. and I are
idle 'again today (Tuesday) but it is
fully expected by the beginning of
next week there will be a change for
the better, at least, there are preparations going on all round at' the different collieries, getting ready to handle
big outputs before/tlie fall.'     ,     -

In contemplating this amazing vista
we are liable to lose sight, of one thing
—the evolution of mind, and the Socialist mind in particular. The Socialists of the intellectual school, parading their egotism under a seeming
desire to-make plain the workings of
Capitalism, to, the humble "plug," insist upon the. nauseating performance,
of one tune." "Labor power Is a commodity; "commodities exchange at

what so and .so said a year ago does
not of necessity .tie him or her to an
everlasting loyalty? cto   tbat   notion.
Changes occur and recur.   , He who
yesterday was a yelper at the heels of
party traitors, may today be yelping
at those who are standing ln the stage
of mental evolution he occupied at tho
ago of yelphood.    This Is no appeal
for tolerance;.yolpor and yelpee aro
part of the general process by which
the movement progresses. This brings
from our Socialist friends'and also
from a great many Socialists a pathetic question, often asked, and so far
as tho writer knows, never answered:
Why cannot wo have ono grand,unit*
ed party?    Why, do not all Socialists
agroo etc., otc.    We must, to find tho
solution, investigate tho processes of
lho human mind.     Tho evolution' of
tho Socialist mind is n process peculiar to tho capitalist method of production, for wo take it as granted that
ovoryono   understands that thoughts
aro farmod by Impressions of tho out-
sldo world upon the brain,    As tho
outsido Ib then, wo shall oxpoot   to
find tho Inside, and shall not be disappointed."  Tho mind of a human Is
a thing and also a procosB.    With the
contro of tho brain aro connected certain llvo wires, tho Bonsos—foollnB,
finding, henrlng, otc—nnd those aro tho
only means by which wo como in contact with the outside.     ThlB process

Junction with tho lonsoR and chomlculs

tor of tho mind lo tho powor of abstraction.

not "strictly-.true; all that-happens is
this:, ;The problem' of?the .teacher hi

upon^ our brain by* the* outside world.
Making   a   distinction' between, the
sense Impressions,-, and the mind .we
shall.see.that-just 'aa'.,in society7the
basic mode* of production is absolutely
social' and the method .of' Individual
ownership causes endless , strife and
confusion.    -That. the production    of
commodities today has long slnco outdistanced the mental-conditions, arising frotn individual   production ' and
ownership, leaving that impression as
a last barrier against the proletariat,
lt Is above all things imperative for the
owning class to retain as long as pos-"
Bible** in the working mental process
these archaic notions.    The confusion
arising from opposing methods,of production and exchange is reflected in
the human brain.*. Tho sense impressions'convey a picture'.of things as
they are, the-mind—thanks to the efforts above stated—as they were. Cooperation evidenced by our organs of
sense stand in contradiction to the in-'
dividual teachings inculcated into our
mind. ,« The task of Socialist propaganda is to bring the slave mind up-to-
date, to clear away the old obstinate
ideas of,the past and force,the mind
into "correct relations twlth ithe • sense
-impressions.''' * \
■• It cannot be done in one day, the
years' of master class teaching take
some time to wipe off.* - • The light of
sense impression, of experience, spread
slowly over the average mind and not
until-both are( in accord can clarity
of thought be obtained. •<' ■ ,"
As during the sunrise a land of twilight is seen, a borderland betweci?
light and darkness commonly understood, so between the, light of Socialist thought and the dark of capitalist
notions, Is also a land of semi-light
impossible to be-avoided. Here is the
cause "of. all that want of unity complained of by. those who have valuable
time to spare,,so long as"the mind is
discolored by master class teachings,
the struggling light will create a mix-'
ed and fitful mental glow, the border
land between light and dark, past and

can it be-otherwise?*- The confusion

A; W. Lewis says'that people seem

A LITTLE TALK ABOUT
„ THE 1813 THEATRE
"What'B tho reason overyono likes
the show at tho Isis so well that thoy
will pay 20 cents to boo tbo.plctui'OB
when they might go to some placo else
for loss?"
ThlB is n question that has boon
askod ovor and over again, We aomo-
times look at tbo immonso crowds our-
boIvcb and ask tho samo question, but
whon wo como to think of It, tho answer Is easy BECAUSE	
Wo get the BEST PICTURES to be
ob(ittned) Irrespective of Cost.
We try to got on every change day
a program of plcturos that will ploaso
ovorybody, men. women and children,
of all classes/and wo usually succeed,
And then "correct offects oro never
accidental," So it's a* accident that
makes our pictures bo clour; Un's simply that we havo (he best operator to
bo obtained, and have a curtain mado
by ourselves, which we think shows
Just as fine a picture and better picture thnn tho most cxponslvo curtain
made, ■'•"T>^fl
Thon, age,ln, wo havo another charm
.alio Ib aomo charmer, too). .We
havo one of! tho best pianists tn the
city, woo _iuo.ii. uuw to p-ay Ui« _>'w

This may sound to you like an essay on the tupronucy of the hts to
till othor theatres on earth, but it Isn't
that reality.    We talk a wholo lot,
j but we Mm, h^h. *, Ul -ih(-'«. out I*.'*
up with actual deeds.     ||
We have simply,, set a splendid
•tandard and havo maintained it. So
this Is the "excuio" for our patrons
liking our -show, and it Isn't such a
,"worue'* excuse, IS IT?—Advt.   '
