In the last article it was shown how
the International Socialist Movement
has condemned every nation tending
,. to divide the workers on political or
on industrial -lines. It- was also
shown that, the workers need a powerful, united political party as well as
, a powerful united trade union movement. These two movements of the
working class, while occupying dis-
' tinct fields and having distinct organizations, should, at all times work harmoniously together. This position
of the International Socialist Movement is, as I have shown, also tho
position of the Socialist party in America. * '
Now "let us turn to the position of
the international trade union movement. The trade unions of the world
do not have an international congress,
but representatives of all the national
federations meet from time to time in
an international conference. Samuel
Gompers attended the conference >of
1909, held at Paris, and James Dun-
' can attended the conference < held at
Budapest'In 1911. These conferences
endeavor to deal strictly with trade
union questions, but the position chat
t rade unions should take toward i po-"
li.ical parties has been debated and
clearly outlined by-the conference'.
At the Paris conference the. matter
came up on the motion of Ihe French
trade unions, to holi periodically in-
te/national trade union congresses,
the purpose of which would be to organize the interna.'oiial on the' same
lines as those adopted by, the Frencu
Federation of Labor.
"The point of view' we take," declared the Frenchmen, Vis, that oniv,
trade union action can lead the workers to final victory. . . '. You want an
industrial and „ a political movement,
but we want a purely economic one
Our method of direct action, so, often
derided, will surely lead us'further in
_______"• long mn than your tactics.     The
French trade unionists vill- V*. taKe
part in the International Socialist Con-
greses; they do not concern them."
Hueber, of, Austria, in ansewer to
the. French delegates,, made the following statement on'behalf of the
trade unions of, Great Britain, Belgium. Norway, Denmark, Holland,
S.paln, Italy, Hungary, Austria and
"Wo fully respect   the   arguments
brought forward by our French comrades .,; . but . . . we are opposed to
that proposition.,,  We■ believe in the
absolute necessity of the co-operation
of the political - and the-trade union
. movements ot ■ the working classes.
'.These must be the two weapons of
' the workerp.    We must*1 use both In
our struggles, and It would be a crime
to discard either, whilst the workers
are, politically and  Industrially - suppressed by the capitalist classes,
Legien, of Germany, said that he
had not signed tbe abovo statement,
not because his conclusions differed
from those of Hueber, but only bo-
cause he thought the matter might
well be discussed. "If tho French
do not attond the International Socialist Congresses," said Loglon, "wo
havo no right to reproach thorn. But
most of tho Comrades present horo
also go, thore." In answer to the
French delegates who had nrguod that
the general strike was more effective
than political action, Legien declared:
"We do-not want'to spill*the blood of
the workers without necessity."- We,
have gained much without violent methods, and we want to continue these
tactics.'* As a result of this discussion-the French withdrew their.proposition, declaring, however, that they
would submit it another year.
The above discussion has an importance even beyond that of showing the harmonious relations which
exist in Europe between the trade
union and the political movements of
the working class. At the present
time certain elements in the labor
movement are urging the general
strike and?direct action- as the sole
means competent to emancipate the
working class. They set up as'their
model the "methods of the French
trade unions. ' It may be wel},, therefore, to point out,' in passing, that
these methods have not only been, repeatedly repudiated by the international Socialist congresses; they have
also been repudiated by the international trade union conferences.-     |. •
The "last international trade junlon
congress was held in'Budapest. James
Duncan officially represented the American Federation, of Labor at' that
conference, and his most impartial
and illuminating, report will suffice to
make the rest'of my argument for me:
' "A misguided man--named'Foster,
from Chicago, 111.,"' says Duncan,
"claiming to represent an,alleged organization in America, called the'Industrial-Workers of the World, had
been-for some time in Paris,* and had
succeeded in convincing the French
.delegates that he represented a labor
organization in'America" and-was entitled to be recognized by,the.Secretariat instead of the A. •¥.' of L." representative, He is said to have and
in Paris a program "of strong* French'
flavor, namely, low dues, no. defense
fund, the general strike, revolution.?
. . . . ; Evidently his program , was
mapped out on French Hnes and cap?
tureu the French delegation., - Hehad
thereafter taken- his , program from
Paris to Berlin,; to .encourage, the
tion and'pleas. .They, however,'; had
nothing in common with;,his'-?tinfoil
proposition and his .wind bag methods.
Their labor movement is based11 oh a
solid foundation,and makes for real
progress, so. he .was not In'his element
in their country.' . A _'''       ) '  •/ v
When Foster submitted his creden;
tials tp tho - international - conference,
"a motion -was made that the Industrial Workers of the,. World .be not admitted to affiliation in the, International Secretariat-as a trade" union
center. . . ...' The' Frenchmen^ suggested that, if the Fostor aggregdii-n
wore not admitted, that1 the A. P. of L
Bhould be kept out -'pf the International Secretariat until both organizations became reconciled to a uniform
"After1 .gonoral' discussion,. Foster
was given tin opportunity to tell hin
own, story In hla"own'way. .-. . Ho
clnlmed thnt In America the I. W, W
was the only body that organized unskilled workers; that 85 per cent of
their Bkll.ed mombors wero n'.eo in
the A F. of L, unions; that thoso -in-
ions would not admit Socialists and
revolutionary forolgnors Into membership; that the pooplo ho represented
woro 100 por cont Socialists and revolutionists,'who wore preparing fo" the
international  ''strlko,   which   wouU
strike terror into the heart of. capitalism." A.. A * 7 A 7.
' After a day lost in discussing the
divisions in the American labor move-"
ment, ' the conference voted' tinawV
mousiy, with the, exception only' of the-
French, that the Industrial Workers,
of the World be not admitted. Several
things are noteworthy in-this action.
First, that nearly every delegate was
a Socialist, the only* exceptions being
the French, who were anarchists, and
Duncan, whose politics I do* not know.
Second, that most of .the delegates
favored industrial, unionism; and,
third, that in spite of both these facts,
they voted "clown and" out" the self-
styled     "Socialist,"   "revolutionary,"
industrial" union:
■,, * -"-ii j
'This action was taken on the ground
that dual unionism will not be tolerated ■ by the * international movement.
That there should be no' doubt bf this,
"Holland moved that all' trade unions
should join their respective national
centers "and invited;'the International
Trade, Federations and secretariats to
admit''those unions who1 are members
of their "own national center of trade
unions.,' And, further, r to bring pres-
sure'to bear upon non-affiliat*ed unions
to induce-them to join the .'national
center of their "country:*   Adopted."
This action of the conference, as,
well as the jtctioii of the International
Socialist', Congress In repudiating the
methods of Jthe Industrial Workers of
the World,?"cannot,be laid,to personal
differences. The .whole question was
decided on principle.. Dual .unionism
is reason to. the, working class, and
the7fact' that those who have-committed .-that- crime call themselves 'So-,
cialista does,not'diminish their crime.
They.caif.tell Europe of Civic Federation.banquets, and Europe responds:
"How'.can.you talk of treason with
j our own! guilt so obvious?", "Workers of.the.world,' unite," is not in'tfj-
rope a-phase. A It is a vital fact that
is, the/most, inspiring and revoluti.*;.
ary fact?^politically" and - industrially,
that the .world has yet seen. j ' ■ '•
. Having;dealt^witti dual unionism,"
let' us.now/deal with political action.
The following-is a good illustration:'
invites _.t.he ''..'representatives of the
.working'classes-in all parliaments!to
do a,'.,-in their power in order to get
bills •* enacted?into , law - prohibiting
night work in all industries' whete.'jit
is not absolutely necessary. Adopted."
7 That is'the method used by the
trade,union's of.Europe when they
want-the Socialist parties to take any
legislative action.,. And to this conference that Duncan attended nearly
every Spcla'ist party of Europe •sen-, a
report of the' actions taken by them'
upon the requests made by the previous trade-union conference. Indeed,
there is something .inspiring in ,the
first phrase.of one' resolution paBSed
nt tho Paris* conference. "Tho Trade
"Union ' International • Bhall co-operate
with the Parliamentary International
in>prdor.to .bring about." etc. And
tho. ideal Ib not far distant when state,
national and international trade unions and SoclallBt parties Bhall fight
politically and industrially in all harmony and fellowship for tho ©mancipation of the working claes.   >

The Philadelphia North American recalls the fact that Judge Hanford was
once hanged in effigy by his fellow
citizens because of the unpopularity of
one of his rulings in a case, of a street
railway company, versus the people of
Seattle. And- in a Seattle dispatch to
the New York Sun we read:
V'Judge Hanford.has bnen on the
Federal bench ever since Washington
was admitted Into the "Union. His enemies say,in contests of a public nature coming before blm he has invarl-
aoly decided against the people. ' it
was Judge Hanford who attempted to

Just a,word on perches. If you ar«'
in favor bf the heavy varieties, I would
use* fiat'perches, but for light breeds
round-perches?are the best . Whatever you do'don't-put the perches too
higli; • 18' inches will .do. , If they are
placed higlienthe*birds are apt to*injure not only the breast bone, but the

, ' -* ' DISEASES ;
4 I have met, quite, a few who are
having trouble just at this time with
their chicks. And the reason is pot
far to seek. It is. just neglect. Tho
chicks are suffering with gapes.
, Gapes is caused by what Is commonly known as the gape worm,' and
which generally attacks chicks from
three to .eight weeks old.o ., The sym-'
ptoms are gaping arid opening their
mouths as if gaping for breath, and
later on,they cough and sneeze as they
stand, about in the run, continually
gaping until they get weaker and
weaker, andJn a few days death puts
an end to their sufferings. There ls
no doubt'that .these gape .worms are
picked up by the, chicks on "damp
marsh ground, or from.drinking stagnant water, particularly Inx warm weather, for It Is a well-known fact that
where the ground is dry gapes are
practically unknown; but, as I said before, they are most prevalent where
the ground, is-damp, yor where ttie.
ground ,1s damp, or where the chicks
have access.to pools of water.
The?treatment lies in getting rid'
of'the gape -worm from the trachea,
and in-preventing the birds from obtaining .-more.'     One of tlie most effectual'remedies   that   r know of is
to confine .the birds into a lined bas-
ket'or'small box' with a lid on and
puff'clouds^ of strong tobacco smoke
in.",  I'll lthe box-'br, basket with dense
smoke* until  the   chicks   cough  and
sneeze repeatedly; keeping a sharp eye
that none' absolutely choke.
*_ While there'is no* doubt that-ticks
and gapes in.the course of the season carry off "more chicks than all tile
other diseases put'together, the most
serious-disease that chicks are liable
to; and more: especially  during the
early sumnief is enteric,' which carries
off .thousands' annually. ,   In the- ma-
jority* bf.cases.it Is'caused   by   the
birds  'drinking-- sun-warmed * water,

l1 is interesting to notS that some of the newspapers on the prairie are championing. the
organizing of the farmers. They "want to see the
farmer get1 better returns on his produce, because
they evidently believe it mean's better times for
them too. The Pincher Creek Echo has the idea
that this should be a sort of dictatorship, and editorially they sny:
• •'And the path leading to this dictatorship is
l.oth easy and plain—and only ohe step at a time.
The first step is to seek out the nearest local of
the*-United Farmers of Alberta and become a paid-
up member. "With every farmer enrolled the exe-
cutive of the-above organiation can go to Ottawa,
knowing full well that their demands "will be perforce auceedcil to by "the legislators- of tlie country." . '      .     ' "     "'   . '
■* . _ i
This question of the farmers .organizing during a
time when we are continually, assailed with the
extraordinary, prosperity of the farmers must appear somewhat strange to those who look to this
country0as a sort, of paradise for those who work.
The farmers are realizing that they do not receive
:- tlie full value' of their toil- and have discovered
that individual action iu tlieir case is just as ridiculous as the same mode'of action by tlie .workers
in other industries. Organized effort is now
taking hold of the agriculturalists and in Western
Canada We find the Grain,Growers' Association-
, 'and-the .United Farmers of .Alberta preparing to
wrest from the plutocracy a more.equitable share
of] the values they create.     In the United■ States
.rwe find the fruit growers'formed into associations
- for. the- marketing of their products, and the same
.- system of organization is'taking place in .-British
Columbia. , .       .','.,.

still he performs socially necessary, labor' which prevents his being isolated, from so'cial^deyelopment.
He-is a worker—a wealth producerA-Vand like the.
rest of the workers. he-is discovering lie is. not receiving the social yalue.of his.lab'or.', - jS ' ."'}
The farmer,has",been7wont?toAconsider "himself
a distinct commodity from ijie^niechanic and laborer, and has riot'yet?,realized .that he.is just as
much a wage worker as those directly engaged in
industry under" capitalist- development. , The nominal ownership "of his piece of land aids this delusion-and hides the controlling power of capital.
"When the farniers understand the law of value and
the process by which'they are fobbed of the surplus value they create, then will they see clearly
that their-interests are bound - up with'tliosc *of
the rest of the''workers and they 'must unite with
them to change the economic foundation upon
which. present society is based. Production for
use instead of for profit appeals just as forcibly to
the farmer as to the rest of the workers, and there
is'no doubt that their addition"-tp]'the ranks of organized labor .will have a far reaching effect on
the political expression of the,people of "Western
Canada in the very near future. ;',-,"
That thev United Farmers of Alberta aro realizing their identity'of .interests with the rest of the
workers' is evidenced, by , delegates being appointed* to'attend'the conventions,of various labor
organizations, aud the labor bodies sending delegates ,to attend* tlieir conventions. " This, cannot
but have the" effect of clearing' away the old prejudices existing in the minds of those who are not
brought together so closely as tbe workers on the
industrial field, and when ,they unite on the political field' what will happen ? • This is *a question"
that will cause the old .party-politicians some uneasiness, especially "when it is observed that these
same farmers are studying questions of economics
—the ''dismal science!' that even our own provin-'
cial representative acknowledges being - ignorant
about. Organization is the secret of modern progress and 'that the farmers are lining* up to assert
their position amongst the .wealth producers of the
country is an extremely .significant phase in-the
development,of "The Last Great West."

agricultural development, the effect is to crush,out.
the middleman and solidify the opposing forces in
- the line-up for the .inevitable struggle that must
take 'place over the distribution of surplus value
created by the workers and endyed by those who
control tlie means of life.    •
Those who champion the cause of'the farmer arc
„ prone to exaggerate the position of* those, who till
the soil, and boldly assert that "The farmers can
prove that iliey are backbone of country.''   Now
this is only,partly true, and whilst it,may have
held good at. a certain period of development it is
not so widely applicable today.    "The backbone"
of all countries is in'those who do the useful work,
, and imso far as the farmers perform work useful to
' society they .constitute one part of "the backbone;"
-' but inasmuch ns a part is not equal to the whole,
«it is evident,tlmt tho farmers cannot in thomselvos
' be the "backbone."
•'"" Tt .nuKt ahvnys be borne in mind whon discussing
present day development that commodities are pro-
■ tluccd socially, and that ns a conscqucnco the vari-
.ous divisions of labor are closely intor-reiated, and
that however important a certain branch of labor
may be it is so only in relation to tlio sum total of
all human activity. Without tho- great advances
made in industry Uio. Ipt of tho farmer would not
N^OW ,tha't the first .two money, by-laws have
been turned down, and as a consequence the
improvements? intended "to be carried out shelved,
most of.the citizens are asking themselves—that is
ihose who are" not "kicking themselves—"Why they
did riot vote. True it is that two very useful sums
have been voted for much^needed improvements,
and-further;" it is also true that the credit of'the
city is not robust, but it'is passing strange that
the one particular improvement from which the
■    if ">     _
Council claims   a   surplus revenue   is
should have been turned down!
'We must confess that we are neutral in the matters of this kind,' which should in all cases be decided by the majority of all thc ratepayers and inhabitants of the city, but it is certainly' remarkable
that out of six hundred' (about) votes only jsome
eighty-seven took thc trouble to visit tho poll.
In the first place we are .compelled to ask—How;
many, citizens woro aware of'tho fnct that the
polling whs to take placo on May 27th?' Granted,
all should have known; .but was sufficient publicity given to the fact? Havo the City Fathers discovered how to "advertise" these events? ' Tf they
have, and the poll is a, truo expression of opinion and of intorest in theso matters, then it-.can
scarcely bo taken as an expression of "confidence"
in tlio present Council. If howovor,- and wo are
inclined to accept this version, it is a case of not
sufficient' notice ov advertising, then it should
be a gentle reminder to tho wiseacres that if thoy
aro really anxious to'got their measures through
thoy must got n fow wrinkles on how to advertise*

pressed^ther'visltbrs withinttheir own
half for some time. -Fernie defended
well, but latterly, the ball was center-,,
ed'from the* right;'Manning spooned
his kick and Gonime" and McFegan
rushed the ball Into .the net,; Cooper
making an ineffectual effort to clear.
This goai gave the Creek every confidence, and in a few-minute's. Patterson from' the left scored a flue goal,
Cooper having no'chance-* to save.
Even play followed during the remaining portion of this half, and no
further scoring took placo, Coal Creek
leading, at tho interval by 2 goals to 1,
- On the resumption of , play Coal
Creek wore early aggressive, bolng assisted by a strong wind which had .Increased in volume as the _jamo pro-
grossed. Aftor fifteen; minutes play-
thoy .scored a third .'goal,- Patterson
again being tho scorer.,; . End to end
play followed, tho' dofonco" on either
side being strong, ' McFegan, with a
long drlvo registered a fourth goal for
his sldo. This . point Bhould havo
beon saved by Cooper, ob ho had lots
of tlmo. Fornle woro now a beaten

In concluding Ms report on the explosion at1'the Jamage pit of tlie' Big-;
nail Hill Colliery, Mr? A. S. Redmay'ne',
(H. M. Chief Inspector of Mines)-con-,
tributes the" following: 7 ~-  ;
"Note on the Cause,of Spontaneous
Combustion in • Coal Mines, and Me-.
thods of Dealing with It."     .   ; '
Districts iri which Uob-Flres Occur..
,. The" occurrence, of gob fires or the
spontaneous Ignition of coal or other
highly .carbonaceous matter In- the
gobs (goaves, or wastes) of coal'mines, has been an accompaniment' of
coal mining in certain districts for
very many years. Usually, these fires
are restricted to the wastesaor abandoned areas or ,the pillar -wordings of.
the mines, but ln some coal mining
districts, although on rare occasions,
they occur ln the* solid coal on the
road- side? Hamstead .colliery,* in
South Staffordshire is a notable instance of this. ' In South Staffordshire
and Warwickshire, though they have
always proved* a troublesome feature
ln mining' operations, gob fires have
not proved such hazardous occurrences as In North Staffordshire, where,
owing to the .existence in the mine of
fire damp, the danger attending them
is greatly enhanced.,      „,    °  -1 "./,',
Gob-fires occur occasionally in other'
coal fields. * In-; Yorkshire, though
they occur,in several seams, they are
comparatively-rare In the really gassy
seamsT-^xcept in the Barnsley'Bed tn
the Doncasteri district, In" which' dls--
trict'a veryxonsiderable development
of the Yorkshire coalfields Is now tak-
ing-place. 'Gob fires are also liable
to occur in" the" following other "districts, though not to the same extent
as' in those" already enumerated—viz.,
Fifeshire,. -Midlothian,* Lanarkshire,
Sutherland.'Shropshlre, Derbyshire and'
North Wales.,      ,_ (1
Tho Cause of Spontaneous Combustion^
Coal occludes gases and at the same
time absorbs oxygen from the air, the
rate of absorption" being different in
respect of different.classes*"of, coal.
Thus, for instance, -a Northumbrian
steam coal does'not absorb oxygen to
anything'ilke the same extent as some
Staffordshire and Warwickshire coals,*
the'^diffe'rence'" Instills -respect being
accounted for* by physical as well as
chemical? peculiarities,, and spontaneous-: combustion, is' all but unknown in
the mines of Northumberland, whereas
in the mines of Staffordshire and War?
wickshjre such-fires are of,very com-,
mon occurrence;- ■,'  *       '   y .'    ':
It used to.be supposed that spontaneous combustion-was the resultanVof
the, heat, due to-the oxidation of the
pyrites in tlie coal, the sulphide being
coverted.lbto the sulphate, but this has
been shown to be false.". That the
pyrites,' especially if very finely disseminated throughout the coal, is a
contributory cause, is? no doubt, .rue,
the manner" of the occurrence of the
pyrites being more Important than its
amount.. The chief cause is, however,
the absorption of oxygen by the coal,
the carbon and hydrogen of the, latter
being attacked by oxygen.

report of tho Now South Wales Royal
Commission (pago 3) on tho cause of

coal are said to be peculiarly liable,

.' ^.The Combating of Gob Fires/ .'.
7,1.- When heating haB once broken
out in the workings of a mine the me'
thod of combating the same ls genr.r-'
ally as follows: (a)"if it occurs'in the
solid coal or on a road .side-by 'following along the fractures and loading out
all the heating cola. These places are
sometimes kept open and ventilated,
and thereby kept cool, and'sometimes
packed very tightly, with, sand or
ashes and damned off. *It.<is considered necessary in some cases to put
in"? good arches in the roadway, some^
times for a''considerable length, the
same being kept air-tight by plast'er-
ing-or claying'the brickwork.";, (b) If
heating .'occurs' in the*, gob or goaf
and", the same ,-is accessible, .loading
and "sending out* the 'heated material,
and filling the excavation tightly with
incombustible-material after cooling
of the' surroundings, " (c) If the fire
has actually broken out and the Ignited material .cannot'be removed, .or a
fire may.be suspected and cannot be
reached;-damming off the, area'-so as
to prevent;'as'far as Possible, all "access of air.*. '*■"''< A''*■ - 7 ,     * *-. y
2. With?regard to'the prevention^
o\ heating, in . the solid coal:—The
manner-of laying out the mine often
constitutes7 the'" determining factor."
When fire occurs'in'the solid it,.generally originates' in fissures. These
fissures-ar,1? formed by-Pressure; consequently, any-attemptsto prevent crush
naturally, tend to prevent'fire. •'* '

and sufficient air Is.permitted,to enter
