Arrangements are progressing rapidly for
first of ]May celebration. Sub-district No. 1
celebrate in Fernie and Sub-district No. 4 will hold
their celebration at Bankhead. The speakers for
Fernie will be Parker "Williams, M: M. P., of Ladv-
smith, Vancouver Island., and John Loughran,
see. He-aver Mines. The oratorical'capabilities'of
Parker Williams we too well known to need an,\
advertising from us. Those who have read Lis
.speeches in the Provincial house will appreciate his
visit, and it is to be hoped that both Hosmer and
Michel will be well represented. John Loughran
comes with a reputation from the Old Country,
although he lias been a resident in Canada for some
years. John has addressed some of the largest, labor gatherings in the Old Country, and can hand
out a line of talk that is not only straight to the
point, but straight from the shoulder."
J. D. Harrington, well known to Fernie and at
the Coast, will speak at'Bankhead-On the 1st. J.
D. is one of the brightest and most convincing
speakers that has ever been heard in B.C, and in
spite of a period of hibernation iVstill able to hold
an audience when speaking on strictly economic
or labor topics.
The list appended is the result of collection^ to
date. There are still a number of others to be
seen, and we have not the slightest doubt that the
list will be considerably augmented before the collectors quit.

will ,be noticed that Wm. Dicken has
bought and installed a power rock
crusher, capable of crushing 30 yards
of rock per day, and is offering crushed rock (all grades) for sale. This is
a very useful addition to the town and
builders will undoubtedly avail themselves of this opportunity to secure

I want to say to the public that I
am an American citizen. 1 have nevet:.1
broken a law in my life, and 1 claim
the right of an American citizen to
go where I please so long as I do not
violate the law. The courts of Las
Animas and Huerfano are open and
unobstructed in the transaction of
business, yet Governor Ammons. and
his Peabody appointee, General Chase,
refuse to carry me before any court,
and refuse to make any charge against
me. I ask the press to let the nation
know of my treatment, and to say to
my friends, whom, thank Gode, l number by the thousands, throughout the
United States and Mexico, that not
even my incarceration in a damp underground dungeon will make me give
up the fight in which I am engaged
for liberty and for the rights of the
working people. Of course, I long to
be out of prison. To be shut from the
sunlight is not pleasant, but John Bun-
yan, John Brown, and others, were
kept in jail quite a while, and I shall
stand firm. To be in prison is no disgrace. In all my strike experiences
I have seen no horrors equal to those
perpetrated by General Chase and his
corps of Baldwin-Feltz detectives that
are now enlisted in the militia. My

to close my eyes to see the hot tears
(Special Correspondence)
DENVER, Colo., April 4.—Driven
,wild by their exposure before the Congressional Committee, the Colorado
Mounted Cossacks are running amuck
in tlieir terrorizing misrule of the
strike zone.
Almost every night the tent colonies are surrounded and the miners
and their families lie awake in fear
of their lives while the machine guns
passing are trained ou their homes.
Only last week four militiamen robbed -the saloon at Suffield and then
shot up the tent colony.
The prostituted press'of Trinidad
has been agitating violence against
the miners and the strikers are daily
anticipating the militia and hired assassins of the operators to make a
murderous assault upon them.
"Jolm I). gives $1,000,000. for aid of
beasts," was the interesting announcement made to the country Tuesday,
and yet lie' says that to give the Colorado coal miners a wage increase of
10 per cent would put lilm out of business. In the same connection it is
well to remember that before the
strike was called he said he would
spend $5,000,000 to prevent the Colorado coal miners from getting this increase.
How long will the laboring people
of the country reconcile themselves to
these outrageous conditions?
Of tbe twenty-three Ladysmith ■prisoners sentenced by Judge Howay,
last September, in the local court, to
a term of one year's 'imprisonment,
twenty-one are now back at their
homes, having returned Thursday
by the S. S. Maquenna, and proceeding to Uidysmlth by automobile.
Of the others Joseph Mairs died
\y,liile in prison, and John McKenzie
is still under treatment for Hlncs«
contracted  while in  confinement.

ity will vanish at -the result of tihe
future social revolution; that is to
say, that public functions will lose
t-helr political character and will toe re.
solved into simple administrative functions supervising th© social Interests.
But the anti-authorltanlans demand
that the political State shall be abolished at one 'blow, even hesfore the
abolition of the social conditions that
created lt. They demand that the first
act of the social revolution shall be
the aiboHtlon of authority.
Have you ever witnessed a revolution, gentlemen? A revolution Is certainly the most authoritative 'thing
that there Is, an act by which a portion of the population forces its will
upon the other portion by rifles, -bayonets and cannon* all very authoritative means. Aiid ihe victorious party
must maintain Its rule by the terror
that Its wenpons Inspire In thp reactionaries. And If the Paris Commune
had not made use of the authority of
an armed people against the bourgeoisie, would It have lasted Ioniser than
n day? Conversely, can we not reproach It for having used too little of
his authority? Hence we face an in-
evluble alternative: either tiie anti-
ntitliorltariiiiis do not themselves know
what ihey are talklmt about, and in
that case Uicy are ouiy cruaiing confu-
slon, or they do fcnow, and In that case
limy are iKtrayln* the cause of the
proletariat, lu either case they nre
only serving the reaction.™ The New

iThe old stdgma attaching to the
word "Socialism" is fast fading. The
attempt to discredit measures of social advance 'by calling them Socialistic is proving so futile that wise reactionaries are driven to other tactics.
The time is just about here for mild
reformers to seek credit .for their
schemes by calling them Socialistic.
There is abroad in the land a good-
natured complacency, which bunches
into one happy group all measures of
social welfare' and tries to make it
appear that it matters little what a
man's social creed is, provided he really means well. We are becoming
familiar with variegated attempts to
formulate a social program on which
4very "good citizen" can stand and
work, no matter what notions he may
•have as to the trend of social evolution or the desirable direction of social advance. It Is almost taken for
granted that if the proper oharm can
be hit upon .we shall see Anarchist, Socialist, Industrialist, Individualist, and
Capitalist in benign rapport. And it
•is in the name of science that such
vapory, visions are thrust upon us. If
due care is not exercised, the workers
•for social betterment will- be tangled
into a nondescript muddle very gratifying to the wdelders of privilege. The
congratulations heaped upon opportunism in the Socialist ranks are but evidences of this new nightmare that is
Not long since an eminent economist ridiculed a subordinate who felt
called upon to battle as a Socialist.
"Now, see here," said the great man,
"you believe in this, and that,-and the
■otfyer thing. So do I. You want to
•work for them. So do I. But I don't
call myself a Socialist. And what's
the use of your flying the red flag,
and mouthing re volution?" Thia incident is a fair example of prevailing
confusion. The answer is easy. The
young man should have answered his
eminent superior thus: "We -both want
to go in a certain direction., I flock
with those that'are pushing with all
their might in |hat direction: You, in
your unwillingness'to join us, find no
alternative save co-ofieration with
those that are being unwillingly dragged toward Socialism, or are going
part way with the muddled notion that
somehow or other they may thus
avoid going the whole way." The one
■was working with those that believed
.with him. The other was thrown into
a crowd that largely • resented his
trend. .But tills was more comfortable, of course, than to wear the red.
It is just at this point that a clearing
ly when it is agreed to impose equal
conditions 'by law upon all employers
of labor, does it become evident to all
open-eyed capitalists that it pays to
make these conditions increasingly
stiff, in order to elevate the efficiency
of the human chattels to the desired
point. This point of view, sets the
measure to the progress of reform, under capitalism.
The matter may be made perfectly
intelligible by applying to capitalist reform the well-known economic category, the law of diminishing returns.
We -inay state it thus: It will .pay caipitalists to enact reforms improving the
est, and' particularly bf class interest,
the capitalist that, opposes legislation
for the betterment of the life conditions of the wage-slave is a fool, because, forsooth, lean cattle without
shelter from the blast will not fill the
drover's pocketbook. Let us see
which is the fool.
Begin with the matter of industrial
education. Capitalists now realize
that it does not pay to keep all the
workers densely, ignorant. The capitalists spirit Is indeed, pushing vocational training of a narrow type, designed 4,0 fit tlie coming generation of
poor for doing in a menial way the
conditions of  labor,  so  long as the menial labor that their menial fathers
money  thus   sacrificed  pays normal are now doing.    But the intention is
dividends in increased efficiency. But
the point will <be readied presently
where an addition to the well-being of
that they shall do it more effectively
in order to pile up the dollars faster

At what stage is social reform at
prest-nt? Evidently we are just entering upon the period whose dominant
characteristic will be a shrewd recognition on the part of capital that, "welfare Vork" in every sense is, if not
overdone, a paying proposition. Some
capitalists have recognized this fact
in the past.   'But the bulk of the cap-
That "real wages" in London
dropped by 5 per cent .between 1900
and 1912 was the conclusion arrived
at in a paper read by Mrs. Frances
Wood before the Royal Statistical Society recently; The president, Prof.
F. Y. EMgeworth, was in the chair.
The results obtained under the
various sections were summarized in
the following table:
Average, 1900-12—100
Retail food prices     97.2
Cost of living     97.5
Wages .<*. 103.7
"Real wages"  106.4
Consumption per head. 102
(United Kingdom)
According to the present investigation, between 1900 and 1912 retail
prices in London increased by aibout
8 per cent. During this period■'wages
had not kept pace with prices, even
when the increase which took place
in 1912 was Included. While the cost
of living increased by 7 per cent,
wages, when changes in the amount
of employment were taken into consideration, only increased by ajbout
1 per cent. In other words, taking
the period as a whole, "real wages"
in London showed a marked decrease.
Bebwee.ii 1900 and 190!) they dropped
by 13 per cent, and between 1909 and
1912 rose by about .S per cent, with
the net result thai for the whole
period they actually dropped by 5 per

to the masses, in tho class struggle,
any training, however inadequate and
narrow, is better than none, and that
every increment of skill, other things
being equal, makes the man so much
less a slave. Unless capitalism can
couple with its plan for. narrow voca-
tionallsm, a thorough training in sub-
missiveness and sheepishness, it is
arming labor against capital. We may,
'accordingly, expect a boom of the
movement for the diversion of public
funds to the support "of parochial
schools. 'But it is safe to say that experience will in the long run prove
that the height of industrial skill and
efficiency demanded iby modern capitalism can not be secured without giving real education to the masses. It
ls equally clear that to Impart this
genuine education writes the death
warrant of. capitalism.
Here, then, is the dilemma. Capitalism may take either fork of the
road: Keep the-masses ignorant, and
thereby servile, but at the cost of los

ry of Uie nations; or, educate the
■masses for efficiency, and hold first
rank in ■international competition, but
at the cost, of whetting the proletariat
to a sense of its potential strength.
Either course is ruin to American capitalism, and  there is no third alter

Vancouver has been greatly disturbed over one
of the 'most-brutal and ghastly murders ever perpetrated iu that city, and the feeling of the inhabitants is accentiuited by the fact that.an Oriental
a Chinese lad of seventeen years'of age) is accused
of the crime. *,.'."
As is usual, a certain portion of.the press has discovered that, the accused (Kong) some two years
ago identified himself witli a society of young
■Chinamen, who studied communism and advocated
the principles of anarchy. So far the news agencies have been unable to trace any Socialistic alliance, but we can hope that within the next few
days it will-be stated,,on- the usual indisputable
authority 77) that Kong was a member of the Social ist Party,       °'
A ■sequel to the murder is that the city council
of Vancouver liave decided to take action in the
matter of segregating Oriental children from white
children. Further, a resolution was adopted pledging the City council to give contracts for supplies
only to those firms who employ white men, provided TI1K1R TERMS WERE ON A LEVEL WITH

we love 'em? The Oriental is here because he is
CHEAP! And so long as he is cheaper than the
white main so long will lie stay, regardless of what
effect his morals may have upon others, lie has

Several unions have raised no objection to Oriental labor, provided Ihey received the same
wages as a while man. Needless to say the white
man always gets first—liis endurance find strength
are invariably greater.
Still, no doubt the Vancouver City Council! will
simmer down after awhile and in the meantime
the least perturbed will bc "John." who will blandly smile and exclaim "Me no sabby!"
We wonder if Bowser will order the discharge of
all Chinese from the Vancouver Island mines? Is
there no fear that some of these generous strike
breakers may have their morals contaminated?
The First of May will be celebrated by the mine
workers of Fernie and Michel in the Civic Park,
West Fernie. A strong committee has been formed to make arrangements and collect subscriptions.
The tradesmen will be asked to contribute towards
this celebration, as it is realized that a number of
people will be attracted to the town and considerable business accrue therefrom. A splendid program will be fixed up and all that will be required
to ensure success is tbe help and co-operation of all
and—of course--the best smile from Old Sol possible.
Look out for the collectors and let's have a real
good time. Every subscriber will receive an official receipt from Gladstone Local Secretary, T.

[By D. S. Burch]
Associate   Editor  Farm  and  Fireside
In the articles that have gone 'before, w© have -mentioned some of tihe
reasons for the unsettled conditions
in the dairy business. The educator,
dairy scientist, inspector and law-
Hiaker.-lia^e'been shown to be unreliable leaders in several important
matters, The milk dealer* on the other hand, -has pushed himself U> the]condensed milk.
These figures show briefly that the
standard 'brands of condehsed mllk
are considerably more expensive than
ordinary milk, even after diluting
with 'water. Considering the cost of
the can'and the condensing process,
•this is ibut natural; but it is curious
•to note that the Boston consumer who
ivbsbluitely refuses to pay the milk
dealer more than,,9 cents a quart for
milk pays his grocer at the rate of 10
to 19 cents for a quart When buying
front ,to a position of,,control.   By Ms
thnrmwh   ,k*n*n\vlc*>l,o;<*1 nf   his own   ilnsi
ness and the business of; others associated wlUi him he hasi become the
most dominant figure in the commercial dairy 'business.
Thus the condensed milk industry is
vortlsing as a means of educating the
consumer. The manufacturers had
first to overcome a deep-rooted prejudice  against   canned   milk,  then   to
•would take a Philadelphia lawyer a
year to figure that out. Besides, I cannot afford to keep books."
■I asked the slime question of another fanner selling milk Jfrom' a
twenty-cow herd in Virginia, and he
produced figures showing that the
average yield of his cows was 6,132
pounds a year, and that he made .48
cent profit on each quart. The retail price, was 8 cents. Delivery and
production cost him 7.52 cents.
Just for a moment think show much
better off this man would have been
if he had had better cows. His coiws
give only 6,132 pounds each per year.
Ten thousand .pounds is not a high
yield 'for good co-ws. To be sure, this
man sold his milk for less than 5
cents a pound, which is too cheap,
considering its food value; tout if his
cows had been really efficient he
could have made a good profit ait 8
cents a quart. *,,.
There were, other records showing
the returns from different cows, and
the cost of' milking, caring for, and
feeding 'them.
I give -these figures, not as models,
for they are far from that, 'but merely to show what one man did without
the help of' a Philadelphia lawyer.
The cost of running a dairy is bound
to-change continually. It will be different for different farnis and farmers. The mail who has a small farm
near town has a low delivery cost
and a high cost for feed. The reverse
is true of a larger farm farther out.
If the dairy is too small, overcapitalized, or too far from the market, the
high cost of producing, milk will show
that Mie .farm is poorly adapted to the
milk 'business and would be better for
some ether purpose.
A young farmer about' six miles
from Mankato, Kan., whom I visited,
had contemplated selling both milk
and cream in Mankato, ibut found he
could more profitably sell first-class
dairy butter and buttermilk. While
the 'butter brought a smaller gross income than would have been received
from milk and cream, the gross cost
of delivery was much less because of
less frequent trips, and' his net profits
justified'his wise decision.
Simple Rules for Selecting Milk
The method for selecting the <best
grade of an.llk from the kinds available is a question which the consumer'must help himself to answer, The
'best general rule is to observe the
keeping quality of the milk. If kept
in a clean place at a temperature of
60 degrees Fahrenheit or less, good
milk will remain sweet twenty-four
hours after delivery.
•With this general Idea in mind,
first (consider the case of the consumer" who deals directly with the
producer. A personal visit to the
dairy* is enlightening, ibut is seldom
indulged In. People are too 'busy,
and, as one housewife told me, "I hate
to meddle in the affairs of people I
don't know very well. The best substitute for a vl§it to the dairy is to
see whether the milkman is personally clean and particular. Does he .wipe
his feet on the mat, .does he keep his
hair brushed and are his teeth clean?
Is iiis horse well groomed and well
fed? If he seems to pass muster in
these'things"and. the .milk keeps well,
vn*,, aw fairly sa.fp liv n-mtt-nnlglniir Mm
ploy.ed a careful and competent man
to manage the dairy for him.    The
business is conduoted  on  a  philanthropic rather than a commercial basis.'
Why the Babies Were Bottle-Fed
In   .Washington,   D. C,   one   large
milk plant  distributed   over  375,000
battles of milk for 'baby feeding, in
the course of eighteen months, at a
price mostly under cost.    The average number of persons in the families
helped was about five, and the in-
come per -family only 97 cents a day.
Over a 'fourth of the 'babies had to
be bottle-fed for the sole reason that
the mothers were*obliged to go out to
work.    So the  dairy  supplied them
-with milk at less than  cost.    Right
or wrong?!, Consider how the  little
tots   would have  suffered from   improper feeding, and consider the grief
of the parents over the death .which
.would 'have claimed  many, and you
will believe iwith me that to sell milk
at   less  than  cost   is   sometimes  a
noble work: of philanthropy.   But how
much better it would be to'save the
mothers from the necessity of, going
out' to   work,  and thus enable them
to nurse their babies?   Cow's milk at
its best is a poor substitute for mother's milk.
So, before we criticize rich men's
dairy farms, iwe must first consider
their service t-o humanity and remember there are two sides to the
quesition of 'selling milk below cost.
Don't Oppose the Philanthropy
Any apparent Injury done the commercial side of the business through
•philanthropy is more than offset toy
the advertising of tbe milk' 'business
gained thereby. 'Philanthropy is the
expression of consideration for your
fellow men, and is natural to everybody. It is one of the little extras in
the social side of life, and that is iwhy
it must not be expected in business.
No dairyman can toe expected, for the
sake of oharity, to make a business of
selling, milk under cost or at any figure which 'does not give a reasonable
profit above necessary expenses.
That kind of . false philanthropy
would ruin his own home and increase
rather than diminish the dependents
that society must care for. So philanthropy must .take care of itself. It
will always do good. It is like' a
benevolent stranger; it is something
not to be counted on or expected, and
no dairy farmer ought to feel (badly
because he cannot be a -philanthropist. But in the name of humanity
•let those who can afford to be philanthropists keep up their good work.
Do not hinder them.
If you will not help save the babies
for the sake of the babies themselves,
remember that every live baby is a
milk -consumer, and always will be.
And the partner that helps' to increase the number of customers helps
the business.—New York Call.

They .were two girls—iplaymates—
and very intimate ones. The name of
one girl was Sadie Humvitz, and of
the other, iBeekie Levin. Sadies was a
brunette, tall, bad beautiful long hair
and was more intelligent than BecMe,
her chum.
'Beckie 'was several years younger,
was imbued with more life and go,
'was not so tall,\,and because of her
disposition looked even younger than
she really .was. I had the luck, or
the misfortune, to have both girls fall
in love with me; but I have entirely
neglected Sadie and was oblivious to
her feeling toward me; at the same
time I fell in love with Beckie and
married her.
„ I was well aware of the fact that
Sadie loved me, perhaps, better than
Heckle, whom I married, and I knew
that her heart was broken; but it did
not matter to me in 'the least, In fact.
I enjoyed a feeling of satisfaction that
I was the cause of a girl's suffering.
Sadie iiwas the chief guest at my wedding; her conduct gave one the impression that she was more attached
to the bride than tome. She continually kissed and hugged the bride,
at the same time avoiding me as far
as possible, *st> that I could not but
feel deeply her protest against my unwillingness to reciprocate her tender
feeling, but thess thoughts again
caused joy to my selfish nature.

very often had visitors, among whom
was Sadie. Before my marriage I
knew Sadie to be a very quiet and
sedate girl, but every time she visited
us now -she"'-appeared to be so full of
life and go ■ In * bo unusual a manner
that 1 was certain that her seml-
hysterlcal behavior was nothing but
an echo of her formpr. disappointment.
Later I discovered that whenever
Sadie left our house and wont back to
her small, narrow, room sho had a
crying fit, but that again gave me
cause for Joyous feeling. I remember I used to engage my wife In conversation with regard to Sadie, and
her love for me, for sheer joy.
About half a year after I was married Sadie left the city for Chicago,
and It did not take long until I completely lost track of her.
Several years later, during the summer. 1 had occasion'to make a business trip to Chicago, and I recalled
the fact that Sadie waa somewhere
in Hint city, and 1 waa smitten with a
sudden desire to see her while there.
I told my wife of my desire, and de-
cptte the fact thut I had almost forgotten her, I felt, nome uneasiness In
talking about her, and I knew that
my voice betrayed my emotion, I no-

will come in and wait a few minutes
you will be able to see her."
I accepted her Invitation and went
"Can you tell me how long she has
been stopping with you?" I asked of
Airs. Gerst.
"About two years," she replied. She
looked at me curiously for several
moments and asked:
"And who are you, may I ask? Her
I assured her that I was.
"And what's your name?"
"Cirlln," I replied.'
"Are you, perhaps, a brother of her
deceased husband?" she asked, without taking her eyes off me.
"Why ao you ask?" I said to her,
trembl.ng with emotion.
"•Because you resemble so much
Mrs. Cirlin's husband."
"May I ask if you knew him?" I
asked in surprise.
"No, not exactly, but his picture is
on the wall in her room."
I jumped up from my chair and
rushed to her room. There it was, my
photo, which I gave her years before,
together with her own in one frame,
hung just over her bed. And iu a
moment I understood it all. It was
evident that the girl, who had loved
me so much 'without getting anything
in return, found some consolation at

of Australia to the other the capitalists «ursed' both unions loud and long.
iThen the  scale of -wages for rural
workers was drawn up and published.
It practically doubled the old rates.
Bank managers-, auctioneers, machinery agents, a*nd others who exploit the
farmers -urged them not 'to pay the

Australia anyi manual worker can join
the A. W. U.   Carters, laborers, carders,  sheep-drovers,  wharfmen,  sailors, and in fact anyone can be a member.   Very often men join it in preference to joining the union for their own
calling.   Often men> who work at repairing roads have A. W. U. tickets ln
their pockets.  Before the Rural Workers' Union was started, it was convmon
■to find farm workers enrolled in the

Professor Thornton, of Armstrong
College, has patented a device for -preventing the sparking of mine signal
bells and apparatus, and he demons
strated it before the members ol the
North of England Institute of Alining
and Mechanical Engineers on tho 1-lth
Inst. Two mining disasters ln Wales
have ibeen directly traced; to the Ignition of bad gases Uy the electrical
sparking of signal bells, and at the
recent Senghenydd Inquiry considerable attention wns directed to the dan-
ger arising from this source, Mr. Nelson, the electrical Inspector of mines,
suggesting that all underground sig>
nailing apparatus should he totally ou>-
closed. The adoption of such preeau-
ticiiB would, however, entail great ex-
pense, and naturally n more economic
fafisiiurJ would bo preferable. Pro-

The Respectability
oj Business
[by Joseph E. Cohen]
The report that tho United States
Express Company ls about to give up
the ghost contains n little secret that
the puhlie should mako the most of,
It Is this: The straw which broke
the camel's back was the refusal of
the government to permit Mie railroads to Increase freight rates.
The express company had hoped to
shoulder the Incrt-ased freight reiws
on tlio shippers, Including possibly the
United   State*   (iovcrnment   In   the
device which ho han Invented since !**hj}l.w °.f l»arct-l» . poc
Of course, it would take a Socialist
administration to do this. Hut we
shall not stint praising any other administration which does the work
fairly .well.
The Socialist is interested In an orderly change for ihe sake of civilization to follow, aside from the fact that
the price of a derangement will ttej
paid in part at l**;'*^ '»>' the working1
class. i

Editor, District Ledger.
pear Sir,—-Kindly allow nie space In
the columns of the Ledger io reply io
somo of the statements made by J.
Newman Jn a letter which was 'published in last week's Issue.   Bearing
in mind that only a very small minority of our membership holds similar
antediluvian  Ideas  as Uro.  Newman, j
I  would not hnve bothered  lo reply j
to sucll nonsensfi ns Bro. Newman's
letter contains,   were  lt not  for  IiIh'
distorting -of facts of the matter In j
question.     Ho   states,   for   instance,,
that 1 added words to tut* aiiienamcntj
whlrh were not pRftsed by the Ixk'hI ,
Union mooting, and wli ich' put a much J
different bearing on the ymemlment. I
Let nie point out tlmt I did not add j
miyiliiUK whtttpote-ttjr   to   the   amend-j
iiH-ut. but that 1 -moved in \\m i'ohvwii-;
tion to strike out the words "Secre-
tiiry of the" ho ihe amendment would i
read "Local t'nion" iuH<\H|.of "-^htc* (
tury of the L«<:<1 I'lilf-m."   In liow farj
ililb puU u much different bearing ou;
the matter nnd conflicts with somo
tlili-K wiik-h l** made law tor yur (tuiil*
ance and safety, is not clear to nie,
in Ither docs Uro. Nt ivinan'a quotations
of   the  Coal   M^tit*   Act  and   special
rules enlighten m en 'hi- iu;i!t«-r.    1
may further point out that the amend
ment does not conflict with anything
that is law (capitalist law) and if it
did would not concern me in the least,
as it upholds the first Jaw,of nature,
That It may at times interfere with
our masters' profits I am willing to
admitj'tbut as this is not our funeral
I fall lo see why we should worry over
The switching on to politics seems
to be a thorn In the side of Bro. Newman, and I nm sure he would rather
discuss tbe Immortality of the soul or
the hereafter in the Union meetings
than something which is of vital Interest nnd benefit to the workers, The
brand of Socialism that I am trying
my utmost to make predominant way
seem to ho as far in the distance as
Jupiter ls from Mam to a man who
cannot see any further than his nose,
nnd who ln hotter acquainted with a
prayer book than with the trend of
tho labor movement.
In conclusion 1 would advise Bro.
Newman to rvtxl some Socialist litem-
miv vHt-li, If he is sufficiently Intel!!-
Kent to understand it, will ennblo him
to realize his true position ln society,
and will also enable him to do his own
thinking instead of letting the clergy
du li for him. I always enjoy n good
argument if my opponent-knows what
he is talking a.ioti;. and can support
his argument by facts, but to argue
with Bro. Newman 1* like tailing candy from tx kid. However. I hope he
will stuly the vital questions concerning  thc  worker* and give us Home-
thing which will .be worth while replying to.
Thanking you. Mr. Editor, for the
space iu your paper, I remain,
Yours for Industrial freedom.
[This correspondent Is such a convincing debater that we regret he has
seen fit to introduce religion. This Is
something outside tlve argument and,
we would like all correspondents to
take note: Keep out personal and religious references and oblige.—Ed.]
