In opening the proceedings, .Air. McNeil called the attention of the magistrate to the frequency of car stealing
ot the Creek and the assertion rniade
by Mr. Burns' successor (S. Alexander) that If ihe had a case fully proven,
■he would give the extreme penalty,
namely, six months' hard labor. He
(Mr. McNeil) was not there to persecute an innocent man, but if the accused >was found guilty, he hoped that the
magistrate .would make an example of
this case, and by so doing assist to
•staimip out what was a most nefarious
J. Arnold, sworn, stated that he was
working In No. 1 South, on Jan. 27,
with his partner, George Bvans: they
loaded six cars from their pUu-e that
day, three cars apiece. His purtiu'r
■wns credited wdth two; he marked his
cars with chalk on one side and placed
his check on tbe other side; he did
this because he had lost two cars in
the fore part of the month, nnd the

Replying to a query from Mr. Rudin-
cki, with reference to tlie possibility
of a car being returned to tbe mine
with  original   chalk   marks,   Martin
said that this was .practically Jmpossi-
hle.   iThe -boys had strict instructions
to rub these marks off when cuts came
to the tipple.   Replying to a query as
to whether one man might have -worked more shifts than another, and- thus
have secured   more cars, the check-
welghmtan stated that 'both men had
worked every shift.
Charles Hunt, driver, was tho next
witness. He stated that he -was driving In 5 right district oa January 37.

how ho .was getting on; the accused
answered him. He thought it strange
tbat the accused was at the -parting,
for he bad no business in that part of
the mine. There were six loaded cars
on that trip; he saw chalk (marks on
one of the cars and took particular'
notice that this came from Arnold's
place. The accused could only have

The Mayor asked If there wna anything to bring before the OOnneM, and
ttoe, BonaeU came forward with a request thai  the hospital authorities
hare special rates for electric light

the doctor that during the Herobmer
regime an agreement waa arrived at
whereby, In consideration for certain

On Tuesday evening -the shop clerks
and store people journeyed to the
rink, the occasion being the much-talk-
ed-of -match between the Trites-Wood
Company and the Crow's Kent Trading
Company, The match waa voted'by all
to be the beet ever seen at the Fernie
rink this year. Both teams had plenty
of supporters, and if .the -players had
followed the gratuitous advice handert
out toy tho** on the fence, there Is no
doubt but tlmt the police magistrate
would have had a rather busy time
hearing cases or manslaughter and
homicide. There was no HI feeling,
not a bit and most of the Injuries sustained were caused- by a too hasty oc-
iluulnUuu'i' with iln- ice. All of -ibe
players presented a rather dlfhevclled
wppearance, and th« nether garments
of one gentlemen rendnded one of the

•uitpofted, however, that th<» wearer
cooled down sufficiently to appreciate
chalk his number on ennh car he sent
out. The cars loaded that day were
pretty full cars, about thirty-five to
thirty-six hundred pounds. He made
a counjpladot about the loss of the car
to -the checkweighman the following
day. Tho accused was working In No.
ti, right crossing, and he and his ■partner were working In N'o. <5 right. All
their -cars went to tbe same parting.
George Evans, partner to the previous witness," aworn, stated, that he
was credited for all his cars, .but. Arnold was only credited with two; he
was not using a chalk mark on bis
cars, but saw bla partner mark his
cars with chalk, and all their cars
went to the same parting.
Mark Hugall, company welghman,
waa the next witness. He stated that
he-was weighing on the 27th; thnt he
did not know the accused, and it was
the illrst time he had seen bim. He
recognised the check whlcb the boy
■brought him on January 27th; there
was a chalk mark on this car No, 423,

noticed another car the atanti dny

'Do -the Locals and Membership of the
Western F©deration of Miners:
We, your deiagates to the tblnty-
tMrd annual eouveation of the American Federation of Labor, herewith
submit the following report:
There is nothing in the proceedings
of that convention that calls feu* a'
Lengthy report, aad we think a reference ito the matters in which you are
especially interested is sufficient material uf-on which to touch at the present time.
Wo.think we are justified -in stating
that it-he long-drawn-out fight betiV-een
the contending organizations cf s'team
•shovel'workers seems-to be nearing an
end. Our interest in the matter arises
from the fact that in some localities
mining is done by steam shovels, and
is under the jurisdiction claimed by,
r-nd aj--cttei to, the Western Federation of Miners. One of the contending
organizations denied us any righit in
tha iiremisp-s, as far as men working
011 steam shovels were concerned, and
d'oolaral that it would recognize no
■Strike or situation declnrul by the
Western Federation of Miners. This
organisation is illegally affiliated to
the Ami'iPlcan Federation of taber
itlirough a charter issued by the Steam
Kngluie-er-B. The other organization ls
not affiliated, but has been seeking affiliation tor several years. Th-is, owing to objections by the Steam Engineers and tho Illegally affiliated steam
shovel mc-n, has been denied them.
Contfereiici-s innumerable have been
called, at which it was hoped the two
orgamlzations could be amalgamated',
but invariably occurred -that only rep-
resenitaitlves of the American Federation of Labor sent to assist in smoothing out the difference which held the
unions "apart.
The associalted union, the one which
is 'not affiliated, on any job on wliich
its jnen were employed, and where our
■members -came in contact with them,
always co-operated with us in endeavoring to better the condition of the
workers, and in case of strike always
responded .to the call and remained
(true to the cause. The Los Angelas
aqueduct, the Bingham and Ely strikes
are notable examples of loyal conduct
by the memlbers of the associated
unton where our members and organi-
ization were involved. *       /
"A charter is to be granted to air International Union of Steam Shovel
iMen not later than July 1, 15)14; and
this action, lt ia hoped, will end tM-s
long and sometimes -bitter struggle.
The most bitter Eight in the convention wa's that in which are interested
the contending factions of the Electrical  Work-si's.    Bach  side -designated
•tihe other as scab 'organizations, and
claims were made that there was abundant proof of the contentions.    If a
small .particle of the claims made by
either'organization are true, it is'very
likely (that ho'Sh organizations spent
mere time and energy in fighting -each
cither than they did in trying to better
•the condition of their members. When
the 'convention closed there seamed to
be no improvement in this state of affairs, 'but since then, we are pleased to
note, that a tentative agreement has
bean reached in San Francisco, signed
and 'approved by those* in authority in
I bcdi'factions, which is to be submitted
Ito the members of both organizations
ifar   ratiHiaatiion   or   rejection..    It   is
.thought there will be very little or ao
'objection to the p ropo sad terms of set-
1-ftmont. which, If ratified, -will end another of the bitter quarrels in the la-
'. bor movement, ami no doubt those who
j fought each other sio viciously for the
; past several years will now, when they
! get working together, discover in each
j other qualities and -principles they Ut-
; tie expected to find in anyone so -b!t-
vterly opposed to them.   And now that
;their quarrel is ended, the combatants'
I will be stronger in working for the in-
•tere&is of labor, and 'those associated
with .thorn .will  find   their  work  no
longer impeded by that d'emonftizlng
mid 'SU'loidal struggle.
John Mitchell declined to be a can-
•tM-iate for re-election to the executive
j council. John P. WMte, of the United
Mine Workers, was elected to fill the
vacancy, and if our organization bad
Triad the selection of the man to hold
this position, it ctfuld n.ot be batter
p'-sasad wi'-bh the result. Frank Duffy
was eleteted ;t.o fill the vacancy made
by ithe declination of Wm. Hu-ber to
he a candidate. Both are from tbe
Carpenters. •*<
We believe that most-of cur members will •'be pleased to learn that Mart
Doivaghue, of the Mont-ana State Federation of Labor, has been* elected as
fraternal delegare to Canada to represent .the American Federation of Labor at tlve Canadian Trades Congress.
Brotteir Doroaghue Is not a member of
the Western Federation of Miners, but
Ma firLe.nd.sbip lor it and his loyalty
and work for lit- wdien occasion requires, is just as, efficient and just a*s
true as if he were one of our own
members. The only regret your d-ei'e-
eatfs fe.lt sit his election for that honor
ls tbat it is a no greater one.
For fraternal delegates to the British Trades Council, William D. Mahon
of the Street Carmen's Union and Mat-
itteew Woll of the Photo Engraveia'
Union were elected, and lt is -safe to
eay thflit the American labor movement
will >be ably represented by them.
On the iwlhole, tite convention was a
quiet one. Outside of the Electrical
Work-sirs' fight there was no serious
Tbe Colorado "ooal miners' strike
was indorsed - and the moral -support
oJf 'th* Amier-iea'n Federation of Labor
was .pledged to it, aiwl a congressional
investigation of the conditions out of
which it grew and those -existing since
its inception -diemanded,
■The strike of the copper miners of
Michigan, which our organization is
oo-adu citing, was indorsed, an.d the af-
fiilJaited unions are urged to pay the
voluntary assessment asked tor its
support -by the executive council of the
American Federation of Labor, it was
also urged that unions, friends and
syimpiait'kizens raise "money by other
means and that further donations -be
made to -the end that the struggle now
beiing «o henotolly waged in Michigan
be prosecute! 'to a successful termination.
'Another resolution was unanimously
ad-opi-ted, calling on C'ougre-ss to insd-
tuite an invesbigatlon of the strike in
Michigan, and for the proper autliorl-
■tios to investigate tih.^ methods by
whilch the land on .which are localted
the copper mines Avas obtained from
the United States government, and
that legal proceedings be instituted to
compel the rest'oration of that land
■ fro.Uid'uleB.tly obta'ined, and now the location whereon Is .being waged one of
the most bitter struggles in the history
of tihe labor movement. Aiteen-Mc-ii As

The cause of 'poverty lies .mostly
with those who live In poverty and
especially is this true In a country
where every man has a vote.
"The grand jury In the strike zone
of Michigan brought in indictments
against President Moyer, Vice President Mahoney and all the members of
the executive 'board. Indictments were
also found against all officials of tbe
local unions. It ls unnecessary to
state that no Indictments were rendered against the thugs and gunmen,
The grand Jury belonged to the copper barons."

—"No batter' attest of the success of
*:he -coal strike -could be had..than the
operators' own -figures 'furnished ithe
state coal mme inspector for December
whioh show :th'at the prod-uottap of coal
•in the strike zoi^e * was omly 130 . per
ceiiit of -the tonnage, 4ak:em 'trom these
E-aiine .mines in Dec'emfber, 1912," said
John R, Lawson, Nationa;l Boaird iMem-
■bav of District 15.
"Probably the '.most surprising thing
mbout the operators' figures is the fiaot
that they absolutely prove .that former
n-ewspslp-sr statements made by -them
were absolutely false.
"Eveiry scheme posiaihle was used
iby the operators during the latter jpamt
of November to get scabs into the
state. Huuttoe-dis of men were brought
from the east -on the -premises that
they were to work in a mine lieair De-aver r.vhere -there were no labor troubles.
"Anc-tiher large bunch of men were
brought from Jopilto, Missouri, on the
-r-reitens'e tbait they were buying 20
acres cf land in the 'Sa*n Luis valley
near Alamosa and then- taken under
miVltary -proteatron into tlie Delagua
mine several hundred miles away.
"With tihe aid of -mllitila and hundreds of murderous mlr.*e guards tCiese
men were forced to wwk lu tlie rabies
B-gaitaet their protests. At Teroio -the
guards took die men's shoes from
them every night to -prernit ■tlieir es-
"The operators made repeated an-
n'ounic-emieiiLs through their ipreaa that
they had wli the men ithey needed anid
thait pro'duction -would bo Tioranail fipr
ithe morith of December. Throughout
the anon-th they repeated 'these stat'e-
ments and- said that so far as the<y
fcesrs oc>Dcerned the strike was (broken.
"When, in the middle of December
rthey were unable to produce enough
•coal to supply -the penal lingtlbu-H-ons of
■the state amd were forced -to .lease a
mine io the state to -produce Ita own
■coal, they made no effort to explain
ithe shortage.
"Those citizens who have had any
■diou'bts about -the success of .the coal
strike cam Wnd excellent -food -tor
•tilnougliit In the figures for December.
"The nonunion mines of Las Animas county produced 120,188 tons of
coal ifl December, 1913, as against 399,-
348 tons'in the same month of 1912.
^Huerfano coumty's non-union mines
produced 7.585 .tona of coal In December. 1913. The prodiuotlon in December, 1912, was 81,471.
"While the iow production of the
Eionjunion imiiaies is encouraging, the
oper^ubors' figures also 'prove the ef-
ttoAeocy at union labor. Five union
mines dn Bl Ba-ao county produced-26,-
319 tons of coal tn December, 1913, as
against 23,657 tons in December, 1912.
"The . opera-tors' figures therefore
iProve tiat w!h<Ie non-union men were
able to iwoduce but 30 iper cent of the
normal tonnage^ t!he union coal minora
mtoed 112 per cent of the normal out-
respect of one to an-otheivlhe respoct
for ibhe liberty ot man, and Just tor
the sake of 'liberty. It -sounded among
false words -of tbe present like joyous
news of the future, aibout a new life,
which ia open equally to all, far or
near. Upon Uie faces of theee who
cherished It in their hearts, who put
Into Ot their flesh and 'b'.ood. and -made
it a resounding trumpet call to solidarity, upon those faces shown the
proud feelings of young creators, and
It was clear -the might they so generously put into this living word is un-
exterm*!na'b:e, unconquerable, inexhaustible.
But against them began to gather
gray, bllml crowds ot armed people;
silently they fell back Into the Hae.
It was tbe malice of usurpers, prepar-
-Jng to repM Uie wave of Justice. But
ln the straight narrow streets of the
grest city, among its cold and silent
walls, -built by the hands of unknown
masters, already grew and ripened
the greajt* )>eople's religion ot brother-
bcod of ell to all.
Hero and   there  flashed a spark
whkh  will  kindle  Into the  tire of
world-wide solidarity.   It will embrace
the whole 1 uiUli nnd burn to ushes the
mal-Ve. hatred and crueKy which dl*.
grace iik.   It will embrace all beauts
und Jo'.ii slii'in in one ii-t^rt of Uio util-

who are -out to down Socialism in, "It
would break up the home." Wow! but
■It la. funny! All of tbe evils that Socialism would usher lu are right here
in -our -midst under the glorious (!)
era of prosperity. Instead of gobbling
down what some spellbinder throws
off his cheat the Socialist'says, "Don't
accept what I say but examine conditions for yourself." Is not thia tha
wisest plan to follow? Of course you'll
say "Yes." Very well, let's do a little
examining. What Is the percentage
of men end women living along the
line of the Crow that have left homes
on -the other aide of the herring pond?
You don't know exactly, hut this you
do know—it is a big one. It waa not
Socialism that forced them to leave
the Innd of their birth—now what? In
Great Britain there have been Liberal
and Conservative governments with a
few hod go hedge Lib-Lab or 1-A.b-Llb
representatives. In Germany, although
there are many Socialists In parliament, tht>> do not hold the rein* of
government. The some holds good of
Atmtrln, Italy, Fr.nic* nml other conn-
!r!et». Therefore Is It not fdlse to
charge the Socialists with breaking up
■these homes?

"Hold on, tlliere," toterruipts a level-
tueadied roughneck, "you got this doped
out -wrong. All nougfane-cks afo'-t httt-
heanLed, and some -longheaded fellows
■are aggressive. You can't figure out
Uidngs tha,t way." >
-Holkl on, yourself, levelheaded
■roughneck. We -know we have thia
■doped ouit right. Of -course, some
twighnecka are -levelheaded1 like yourself, and a good tn-nsxy longheaded ipeo-
p&e Siave a dievil of a temper. IBut that
1-sn'it the ipotmt at all. A» a dae®, in
tihe overwhelming majority, the rough-
■necks are people who want to force
things through with a rush. It-is
either push or bust with them. You
go into your roughneck meeting and
offer your levelheaded adyice, and
iwh»t kind of a hearing will you get?
You knqw the style of bouquet that
will be bended' to you.
The longheaded variety, in the large
average, a-dt deliberate*! y, look before
■they leap, lay passion aside, don't
want to forte the bend of Fate. A
regular roughneck in a longhead meeting can blow up as much as he liik-es;
he will make no more impression than
a (pufflbaU.
Our Two Extremes
These two types of people don't act
ttogeithier because theiT styles of doing
things differ temperamentally. The
aggressive roughneck will rather Sight
the  deliberate  longhead  than stand
jin wish tolm, and- the longhead can't
,-stand' in with the roughneck because
the'roughneck won-lt let him, except at
■the eacrlfllce of better judgment A
hot tempered longhead, on the other
hami, knows that he can't. sway a
council of bis likes with his temper.
I "Well, what's the drift of this' talk,
then," objects ithe -roughneck philosopher. "If the working people can he
diLvid.ed into two great camps of "longheads and mmghneicks, who will never
, work together, them these catnip® will
^•eta'ch go their own way, do things- in
■their own way, and- fight one another
even to .the laist day of the Revolution^,
and next day after AV
j Sure eno-ugh, so-they will.' And. the
queatfion sMll remains:  Granted thiat
-jjcith sides work tamest-ly far the same"
aim, along different noads, whioh one
of these sides will do MORE than the
sother toward -winning the Revolution?
Will the roughneck *bea*t the longhead
to it, or wai the longhead -shape tilings
bo (that the roughneck won't get. a
chance to go into action?
Discussing the Future
"Thalt will depend upon the enemy,*•
guesses the roughneck.   "If the business classes are d-omlmated mostly by
th-t_ roughneck type, them the right

way to beat them Is the roughneck
policy, kick for kick. If the old party
camp is dominated by longhead dodgers, the wonkei« may get a chance to
play the longhead game for a -while,
but In the wind-up' there will be a
glorious mix-up between the roughnecks of both sJdes and the longheads
wo-n'it get a -look-In on the fun."
Ia that so? Suppose the real fun
doea not begin until after the rough-
nocka on both sides have scrapped one
another to a .standstill, who will decide the battle then? Tbe fellows who
have n'ont themselves out stopping
bullets, or the fe'Tows who let the enemy spend bla strength In vain sallies

Lack of Staying Power
Roughneck policies cannot be carried through without keeping enthusiasm at white heat, and no one can
maintain a high degree ot seal for any
length of time. It la the steady, plodding, longhead who can endure the
strain and win out.'
The roughneck often complains that
the modern working class is losing
more abd more of the vigor and snap
of early days. He mourns over this
and looks upon' it as a sign of decay,
a surrender to the exfeting (business
system, a meek toadying to unessential details of the hour. •
The, locishdad sees ?the movement
gaining in power and durability in proportion as its individual members get
a firm grasp on the fact that a revolution cannot .be made, but develops, and
tliat the decisive step will not be a
?-P-eicitacular assault on the business
classes, hut the crowning of a series
of sibeady transformations of the -present into the future order. This Is not
a sign of decay, but of-growth; not an
evidence of surrender, but of con-
scAous advance toward -success.
It is a fact etelly observed all over
■the world that ■ the . desire for diraot
kci'ion, and even the sentiment in favor of -strike's tor i)oWtlcal ends, passes -away in the sacme degree in whioh
the *polltlcail power of the workers
grows .through th-e Socialist party.
The Steady vs. the Furious Attack
-The syndicalist, direct actionisit,
roughneck loses his ground.wherever
the Soclaillst panty begins to enforce
general demands of the workjng class
by fteglslaMon. S trlkes may be indis-
pensaible or unavoidable skirmishes of
t^"'workers against Individual employers, but against the whole em-ploying
class they are futile. The drift of .our
times is not in the direction of a worldwide genera! strike for the overthrow
of the extetiirg business system, although great strikes will -occur in the
future, as they have in the past, to
bring some particular employers to

Th© ahove language sounds well, but
if "Marshall, desires men shall- have
backbones, then the system must 'Oe
destroyed that leaves things called
men withbut a spinal column. The
great combtnataons of wealth that have
monopolized the means of life have
converted, men into servile creatures
who render obedience to a master's
voice. If men are to be healthy physically, the sanitary conditions mustlbe
good*, and if men are to -be strong morally, they must live in an atmo-sphere
that is not polluted by the malaria of
"predatory wealth."---Miners Magazine,
vey the situation, have made .-reports
that ruffle the plumage of the copper
barons. Walter B. Palmer, John. A.
Moffit and John B. Densmore eould
ftnd nothing in .their investigations
that reflected credit on the industrial
autocrats who-have supplanted, the
cooatltu-tion <wit^ mob law.   »
These men, clcithed with federal
authority, have reported as they found
condilttJous, and because they told the
truth, the coaper harons and all tbe*r
young lioksipittles and henchme-ri hav©
shown their teeth, but truth and fact®
cannot be crushed or smothered by
the power of an oligarchy that is blinded by greed and drunk with tlie dividends that have been minted' from
overworked and Ill-paid toll.
Great coirobinattons of wealth may
for a time be able to cover up the
wrongs that have beten imposed upon
the workers, hut the .mutterlngs of re-
belHon are growing louder year by
year, and presages the time when humanity shall be the victor tn the battle fer justice.—Miners Magazine.
You simply   ca.n't   be  well—that  is,
your digestion  is  bad,
poison   you
hy in-
is the
ailments and o-f many serious ones too.
Food should -nounsn your body, and
make .good the daily waste which -never,
stops, but it can't do that unless your
stomach digests it. No wonder dyspeptic men and women are al wa ys weak
and ailing—they're -starved and often
poisoned too. Starved, mind you, not
ior lack of -, food, but because they
don't digest the food they eat. Poisoned, -not by eating bad food, but because,,
tn«.ri stomachs axe weak aaid their
bowels inactive, and so the food they
eat ferments and gives off poisonous
gases which are carried by the Wood •
stream to every part of the body. It
is because Mother Seigel's Curative
Syrup possesses in a renvarka-ble degree the power to tone strengthen and
regulate the action of the digestive
organs—the stomach, liver and bowels
-rthat it is still, after forty years' testing, the best known and most successful remedy for Indigestion, constipation,
biliousness and the many distressing
ailments which are traceahle to a weak
or disordered condition of thes« important organs. Success breeds tatf-
tators. and thare are many so-called
substitutes for Mother .ftelael's -Curative Syrup, but none of them contain
the combination nf more than ten

reotlcn of a great political federation
of ithe workers^ which shall obtain for
theiir labor unions, and for the unorganized, those things which they tried
in vain to secure by-industrial organization alone. Growing political power
will reduce the necessity fdr strikes
and finally abolish them altogether by
capturing the governments of the
world for the workers and running industry for the common good.
Scientific Fighting
The working class has steadily gained power from tbe time that Its labor
unions built up the Socialist party and
used longhead methods. Industrial or-
ganHzation has improved under the
protection of Socialist legislators.
There la little sentiment among German labor unions for a general or
mass strike, because they can sooii,-^
more through the Socialist party than
through strikes. Only where political
rights are still restricted; aa In Prussia, the great mass strike ia adve-cat-
od, -but even there only for the purpose
of getting more political power for the
Socialist party through fair election

Last week we criticized the Liberal policy of encouraging the worker to take up land and'work
the same and raise stock or grain; we also expressed grave doubts tis to whether this would really
reduce the cost of living. Since writing last week,
we cannot admit convention to the Liberals' contention, neither can wc agree that "back''to the
land" will help matteivs to -any extent. Granted
that it may in a few individual cases produce good
results, and as a consequence,'.politicians..may glean
a modicum of satisfaction, but, of course, a maximum of political publicity. '-■•■
The other day we 'happened upon a statement in
The Victoria Times credited to Pat Burns, f>f meat
packing fame, wherein l'at is giv(?n as staling that
if people would return to the hind and invest, their
money in agricultural pursuits, and quit "swapping" real estate., they-would better their conditions, reduce the cost of living and save him (Pat)
sending to Australia and New Zealand for butter,
eggs, etc.
To the superficial olwserver, this may sound excellent logic, but it has been worn s^ threadbare,
that little is required in rebuttal. However, there
k one very saliant point, and this gives considerable encouragement to 'the political economist who
has realized for some time that wealth is produced
only by labor, from a bountious nature. This is
one of the surest signs of progress that we have
met with, and it certainly infused us with hope of
enlightening the petty liourgcois who is invariably
very confused in his knowledge and interpretation
of values.
Some years ago, before reaching this Dominion
of Canada, we will confess that our own pipe dream
of the future was a small holding of ten or twenty j of both parties today
^^rc-spfi'portion jallotctl"to"rai-snig~thosp~nrarvT,l lous
crops which the publicity man and lecturer described to us; another portion to bc devoted to the raising of thoroughbred poultry, while the sale of hen-
fruit, grain and sun-dry other produce was to amass
us a fortune within five or six years. It Mas a
beautiful sylvan picture, iii which independence,
freedom from the thralldom of service, and a neat
competence for old age, figured. Now. to make
another confession, we candidly admit that the imbibing of emigration literature was responsible in
no small degree for our unsophisticated condition
of mind, and further, a slight acquaintance with
llie small Ji-oWer in the south of France may have
also beon responsible in a leaser degree.
To return to Pat and his contention .that the
small holder will reduce the cost of living. Tn flic
first place, Mr. Bums is not going to buy (!anndinn
produce if it costs him moro than what he pays for
tho same article, wJiothor it be from Austral hi. Xew
Zealand or Tiinbuetoo. Iio is going to purchase in
the 1-heapent market, not so much because he wants
to. but because, good business man that ho is, he
will be compelled lo. This eliminates the sentimental element of Mr. Munis' contention, and
briiiKM us ba«k to the -concreto.
Of courae, we do not presume that Mr. Burns
ever made any money nt "swapping" real estate;
we do not even know, and certainly do not care.
hut even he will admit that his Iiuk'hich* has been
HCfected, and not unfavorably, by tihe increased
value of real catate. No doubt the balance sheet
of the Burns oompauy makes a generous allowance
for the incnwMted value of xitiw whereon their biwi-
jnw house* are built. Ak ii result of advertising.
more people have -conic to Western Canada, ami
consequently more meat Iiiih been sold, therefor«
l'at should not have much kick about the worker
ttHiuhlitiK in real estate. Of course, Mr. Burns is
"io a (Hisitiou to be virtuous no far as the neeesalij
of gambling is conccrui'd, but we tire not nt all iu
•the ttame position. It is not -strange that a iiuin
worth millions of dollai* should realize that the
v-uiililiiik' in real estate is likely to reflect upon the
iiitleiu'* cntlit. nud were we iii Mr. Bums' position.

agriculturist to produce potatoes and sell at $G.OO
to $8.00 per ton F. O. H. That i.s what many sold
their potaitoc crop for last year. It does not pay at
present, for the railway companies-have to get
their pickings before "Pat" gets a look-in. And
the'land, speculator has grabbed his bunch before
the agriculturist got a start, and if he has not. well
the latter is just a "renter," 'or a little better.
No, Mr. Burns realizes that there is something deeper than the reasons he gives for the present., conditions, but like many more he jibs at the remedy.

Owing to Dr. Detaoiey* leaving here
a few weeks ago, a resolution, .was
passed instructing. the secretary .to
write Dr. Connor, Phwiher Oreek, who
holds the practd'te, -urging him to place
a. miedlicail ipraiatitioner other than Dr.
Dedane/ here at hl-s earliest convenience.
Mr. Burns., or his ancestors, originated, no doubt, ] tor «»oaera>tion was made in tiie usual
from that most "distressful eoiinthry " to the west
of Breat Britain, and here, strange to say, in the
south of Ireland, agriculture reigns supreme, and
likewise distress and discontent. Granted this is
not. the same*.in all agricultural countries, but it is
the condition that prevails in the majority. In the
south of France climatic and soil conditions are altogether different from those existing in Ireland.
The French peasantry have a climate as nearly
ideal as possible to get on old Mother Earth; their
frugality and thriftiness is acknowledged by all.
Here the farmer can raise two, three, four, and in
some cases even five crops a year, and it must be
admitted that the agriculturist in this' part of the
world gives a splendid example to other countries.
The marketing facilities for the French peasantry
are also remarkably good, and he has not oidy
the whole of France, but a considerable portion of
his produce finds a ready sale in London and other
towns in Great Britain. Still, while it is admittsl
that conditions fmm an agricultural viewpoint
are as nearly perfect as possible, there are very few-
moneyed-among, .these'.small holders, and were it
not for their, remarkable .perspicacity in placing
their savings in gilt edged loans and securities
many of them would not be in the position of semi-
independence they are today.
In spite of tliis, the cost of living in France is
advancing more rapidly than in any other European country, and only last year the French woman
arose in revolt'and-demanded of the government
that they take immediate action to reduce the cost
of necessities, and so vigorous was their protest..,
that the government was compelled to call out the
militia to handle the situation. This, in itself,
should convince those ..advocates of tlie Liberal policy, that "baek to the land" does not reduce the
cost of living. Just so long as Pat Burns has sufficient cold storage in which to preserve his eggs,
butter and meat, so long will he and other packers
be able to tide over the bad crop periods, and control the markets. They will pay the' purchaser not
what he wants, but what market conditions will
allow them, or u little less.
We have personally no feeling against Mr. Burns
or any other member' bf his cass. They have reached that stage when virtue is not a necessity, but a
luxury. They arc able to point out to the worker
the evils of speculation, although daily engaged in
the same themselves. Their speculations have gone
beyond the wild catting scheme. One million dollars invested by them at five per cent will produce
a very comfortable income. Five hundred dollars
invested by the worker at five per cent will secure
him a decent suit of clothes.   That is the position
It is au inspiring sight to watch the representatives of the working class -deliberating upon, intolli-
gently discussing and finally deciding on the best
method to pursue on the many difficult questions
that come before them; significant of the future of
that claim, for it is in such great deliberative meetings that they will equip themselves for the respon-
sibilitics that imist eventually rest upon their shoulders.
We find in this twentyfourth convention an ut-
j tor absonee of that factional feeling that unfortunately marked nonj« of our former meetings. Differences of opinions there arc, many of thein; and we
would deplore the absence of such $ but they are
based entirely on the views of the disputants as to
the best policy to pursue on thc particular question
in debate. There is not a sign of personal auiuius

It is undoubtedly the intentions of the
above iiiarty to hold various concerts
throughout the Pass in order to ob-
itadn a little finance to carry them
through and .we hope that they, will toe
well <pa>troniizad.
The Passburg mine has been idile
since the 22nd of January, with the
exception of a few men, and the haulage worked ahout -three days since
olosing down. It seems that the position of the coal .mines is rather a severe one this-.'winter, because nearly
every caiup Is only being operated two
or three days a *<week and there are
plenty of miners in each camp waiting to be accommodated with any kind
of work.

took /place on Friday evening, they
were greatLy disaixpoihted but nevertheless they stayed until Sunday afternoon.
The 'hand time dance, which iwas
held at PasShurg on the 30th of January, was a huge success. It is difficult 'to Hind any other word to adequately express how successful It was.
The best of patronage was given by
the oute'de camps. The Judges iwere
for the best hobo and gipsy, Mr. J.
Kerr, J. B. Thomas, T. Leyshon awards
' ellis, and for the best gipsy awara
given to Mrs. T. Leyshon. The Judges
in tlie prize wadtz .were Mr. J, Kerr, R.
C. Beard and T. Leyshon, awarding
the prize to iMr. Xat Evans and Miss
Jessie Duncan, hut Mr. Evans declined
to accept the prize and., the Judges
had no alternative but award the next
heat with the prize, and It was .presented to Mr. Evan Hughes and Mrs.
T. Knowles. Supper \jjas served at 12

The industrial struggle which we
are involved in is undoubtedly a struggle between the rich man and the mid-
die man, tho former endeavoring .with
aM Ms energy to squeeze the life out
of the small capitalist and as a result
the weakest 4s forced out of his share
and accepts what Is offered to him.
We can readily see that the weakest
of the rich are joining the ranks of
the proletariat daily and consequently
we shall find ourselves In the grip of
men, monopolizing every industry in
the country. This seems to he favor*-
able to our present government, and
it is noteworthy that in all forms of
government final authority in determining the relations of man to man,
in determining .what a people may do
and what they may not do, Is vested
In from one to a few persons who are
in no wise directly responsible to a
constituency. It is the function of the
beneficiaries always In command of
the organized powers to see to it that
no such authority is bestowed upon
the masses. We are today living In a
land of (plenty but forced to accept a
.pittance -for our labor power, and the
only commodity which we do possess
Is not required today, therefore we
have the right to starve. However,
tiie unpractical government of the dominion are unable to overcome and assist the indigence state of the masses.
But iho politician .will tell you that

chairman, and tlie audience showed
.their appreciation of his services by
according him a very hearty vote of
thaniks at the -close of the oon-eert. In
his open-lug remarks the chairman referred- to Burns as the most genuine
poet that ever lived, for he not only
-possessed the natural gift to string
rhymes together, hut whatever touched
his heart, or jarred his nerves, by a

And -bigness -eonn-otes -power. And

we don't discriminate—we attribute
ail -earthly power to 'him, -anyhow. And
where money, -property, .markets and
otlher •components of the economic process are -concerned,- -we admit iiis un-
\ limited domination.' H© owns (these
.things, or -controls them, wM-ch means
'that he -oan and does order other owners of them -to do with them as too
People (that ihiate and fear this alleged omnipotent (Morgan say he caused the panic. Morgan* himself denies
Ip, but, "then, o-f course, he may be an
dmnnipotenit Mai also., Still it is well
to not© Ms denial. On that point (he
agrees with the Socialist.
On the trail of Omnipotence
Concentration, we ad! know, is taking 'plaice, and the weaitlh -thus centralizing is flowing In <the direction of
Morgan, and -from tt he gobs his power.
Yet tbat wealth waa formerly held by
a multitude of other people, trom
whom -it flowed to Morgan, conse-
quamtiy, what Morgan holds Is (power
that has coma to him from his fellow
capttaMste, amd from nowhere else.
Now, lt follows as an obvious fact "that
tho power to stop panics and industrial
depressions, if such power exists at
ail, was once in the hands of a multitude of'capitalists, (but the .panics and
crises cams in recurring order. That
power was never used- to ©top" panics
in -the 'Past. And it has not been used
to stop bham In the hands of Morgan,
either, since it passed to him. It Is
no greater than .before, it is merely
tShe game .power in fewer -heads. So
this is how the -matter starnds.
.When the power tihait is now in tihe
(hands of Morgan was in the hands of
a (multitude of smaller capitalists, tho
crisis cam© just as it does now, with
iMorgan wielding the power.
tonsequently, ite must have *beaa
because of some of the following; reasons: That tlie capitalists aforemeni-
iioned did not use their power to st°P
ipantcs; or, that tliey did not want to
.use it for that purpose; or that they
■d-elii-be-rait-sly brought on the crisis with
it, as (Morgan is now charged with doing; or that the power they (had'was
not suffkieii't for either purpose; or,
finally, 'that they had no such power,
that their fancied .power was aii illusion.
A.nd as it is -the 'same alleged power
and 'Mie some quantity of it, the sumo
reason's may 'be applied to crises occurring und'e-r Morgan's alleged domin-"
! ation.
j    All this is the old persistent illusion
of "free ;will," with 1 which so many
: Serialises, as ws-U as non-Socialists,
« are still obsessed.

sion that the latter must be the catise
of -the former. But it must ibe noted
that previous industrial depressions
occurred long before any one or two
girou'ps of capitalists controlled' finance, and also .that industrial depressions occur in European countries,
such as Germany and England, without being -ureluded toy -financial panics. In these latter countries ithe idea
of holding amy particular capitalist fi-
nanciep responsible for the industrial
depression is never -thought of. Germany and England experienced-.the
saimie -industrial -depression in 1907 as
In this country, and as that condition
in itihose countries -was not precluded
by a iflnanclal panic before .a 'period
of industrial depression, is due mainly
to wlhait the monetary sharps call

currency, and eo forth, and^-tfoaJt, i&xe^o

is .the open season for the bigger plutocrats to devour their weaker bretlh-

-previous crises, for the reason that
the   eaters  were   fairly   numerous;
There -was a large number of fair sized

of little ones.  But now that the eaters

Is the period jwhen the process of cen*-
traJizatian is most rapidly put throughr
and centralization is the natural, imav-
itahle tendency of capitalism.   Th© in-

concentration, ,but vice versa, concentration ls otse of the results of indus-
tdaJ depression.
Answering an Assumption
And now the question may be asked,
Wihy did "those lii control of money
capital deprive 'manufacturers—-industrial capitalists—of the money for tlie
conduct of the industry, and thus bring
it to a -halt" ? Is not this deprivation
and the ensuing panic and industrial
depression to be clearly laid at the
door of our hypothetical Morgan?
Now, let us see. Passing over the
wrong use of the word "deprive" here^
a*nd substituting "withhold" instead,
wihy did the financial capitalists do it?
Is it true that a financial capitalist
loans money to an industrial capitalist
tor the primary purpose of "conducting industry"? No. It Ls not true.
Tlie .primary purpose of the financial
seuL He is only- Interested ia -that
object. The conducting of industry
by the 'other fellow is a secondary consideration to him altogether. The financial capitalist is, first of aii, concerned iwith conducting his own industry and getting the most from his loan.
He is looking -after his,own profits,
not tihe otiher fellow's.' He doesn't
icare whefiher tlie other fellow makes
aay profits for 'himself or not. If the
other fellow' can -make profits for him,
that is about all he cares tor.
Burt At must be borne in mind that
if the other fellow cannot anak-^ profit
at alt, either for himself or his cred
itor, tihe latter will not loan money at
all. (He im-ust first toe .satisfied tbat
his interest and (principal are secure
before he will- advance money, li he
is Tuat so satisfied, how is he to be
hlameicfc, aocomd^ng to the laws of -business, if he does not advance it? No
business man, great or smalt, -from -
Morgan down to the pettiest loan
oha^rto, will advance cash to a oonoern
whiidh She sees te^faiUng. H-e knows
ihe (runs a risk of losing tihe -cash. And
in every case wfhere he do-eo toan> foe
must have -the property ol the industrial (capitalist—<hls plants, machinery,
mines or what not, as security. If the
loan cannot ibe repaid he must ta*He
them, just as a 'pawnbroker holds on
to -the unredeemed pledge.

of the 8oalalist position and the falsity
of all otihers; that the crlalu is "natural" not artificial. In suoh case, evidently our first task Is to attempt to
define these terms, as shortly, but as
broadly and compretoOnslvely as possible. *
The definition of natural as applied
to the crkila may be stated In these
words: .Modern industrial criiet are
produced by causes ovor which any
one -capitalist or group of capKallsts
have no control; which may bo ita.ed,
ln other words, that the fundamental
nature of thn capitalist system cannot
be changed by lis beneficiaries or any
part of them, nor ita natural results
be avoided or averted.
On tho otiher hand, the term "art!-

conception, .whioh In relation to U.«'

The Socialist Position
And what does Socialism say?   It
does not matter, of course, ln tlie
1-east, if all thia Is true, but we might
i note in passing, the Socialist view to
ithe contrary.
Marx, for instance, declares that in
the final days of capitalism, the productive forces coiwtrol tihetar owners Instead of being controlled'by thenn, and
that the capitalist debacle comes when
theBe forces become utterly unoon«
tradable. Production, he continues,
will not stay within the fetters in
which capitalism has confined it. It
will burst them as frost bursts and
(liRlnte«rates the solid rock. It will
burst thero despite the capitalists. The
fact tliat Marx declares that in those
iiays "one capitalist kills many," undoubtedly connotes .power, but not necessarily power over the capitalist system Itt nlf. That ts a different matter.
That -one capitalist kill* many, Is not.
by any means, the same thing as saying that the same capitalist has powir
to keep the -capitalist system alive
We refer our readers to the stand-
i urd tiocialtat literature ou this subject,
the works of Marx. Knsels, Kautsky
and others, whioh. fer lack of »!>ac«\

economics of Socialism literally teem

At th-ls writing the United Mine
Workers of America is holding its an-
hual c-onvenildon at IndCana'polis. F'rom
the r€i3olu,tioi;s tliat have already been
inttrociuced', it is reasonable to conclude
t&ait the presEiiit convention will be
PTC-bahly one of the most important
an'd iflar-reaching -that has ,ever -been
held in the -history of the organization.
Tdia qu'e&Lion of dnidustrial uniouism
has heen (befiore the convention and
the -speeches that have been made indicate that the delagates realize the
iinip-ctaicy of craft organizations in
dealing with tl« giant comhlnationis
thait are using every/w-eapon to desitroy
the -la*bor movement. In 'the delibera-
tjoniS of itBie ccnveint-ion, some very
caustic coiinnients were made relative
to the action of ithe American Federation "of Labor in placing John P.
White as sewnth vice president of the
A. F. of L. 'through the resignation of
John Mitchell. (Mitchell occupied! the
place of second' vice president, and the
delegates hloki that President 'White
was entitled' to fill the place occupied
by Mditche-U, and that his election as
seventh vice president was an insult
to the United Mine Workers of^Amer-
1-oa. *:'. ',,
JThe convention commended. White
for his refusal to aiccept the office of
sevcnith vice .president. The con-ven-
tipn has'had .before It several resolutions "urging tliat the headquarters' of
the organization be removed from Indianapolis. Such resolutions have
grown out of the enmity shown towards organized labor by Big Business
in Indianapolis during' the recent
strikes to that city.—Miners Magazine.
The -strike Is still on at the Queen
mine near Ymir, British Columbia. All
miners are -urged to stay away until
strike is iwon.
