ohalrrimti tor the oocaalon, introduced
the first speaker, John Loughran* of
Beaver Creek, there wer-p between- five
nnd six hundred assembled to digest
the speaker's remarks.1
In opening bis .remarks the .chairman referred in sympathetic' term* to
the terrible disaster ln West Virginia,
and stated that it was feared some
two hundred Jives had been sacrificed.
John Loughran, on rising to spealc,
stated that owing to the limited time
(20 -minutes to half an hour) al&onral
htm It would be Impossible to'do more
than touch upon the fringe of any Important subject, therefore he hoped
they would eicuseWm if he dispensed
with   unnecessary   preliminaries   or
lengthy  references  to the benefits
which trades unionism tins ooufeiwd
upon tho people of this and all other
oommerclAi oountrles where employers had had sufficient business acumen to recognise Ks leaders and adopt
-the principle of eolleotlve tauvaitilnf.
The crudest industrial conflicts the
. world bos ever been cursed. Vith were
caused   through  t«lf<ouceite<t  cads
who call themselves "captains of industry." but whose environment and
early twining* taught them Uf look
upon their wage slaves as machines
specially invented by an aH-wtse cre
ed in, especially the nation that has
planted the Statue of Liberty in tlie'
Atlantic,' ocean in order to Impress
u^on strangers and iminigr-ants about
to tenter the country the ■idea' that
slavery or .injustice would not be toi-
erated.In any form, beneath the star
spangled, or the Stars "and Stripes of
'America, The speaker then went on
tojpoint out the objectlvelesson to be
learned from Colorado .if the ^miners
and other., workers are ,to hold their
own in future against tlie 'en-qrbach-
ments of tiMsts, and combines headed
by the R<Klefel!ers snd o-ther.mjllion-
aires wiho^e millions have bee,n ac-'
cumulated through skinning,'sweating
and bleeding the wage w"or«$rs ot the
oountry. 'We must-not only amalgamate with other associations* whose
alms and objects are; similar to-our
owl*, 'but we must federate,with other
unions wh^re amalgamation is' not
practicable," land- when we have consolidate all the available industrial
forces In this and other countries.into

wtll agree; and that strikes in the future, if they are to-succeed, must be
fewer but more elaborate most think-
ing men will' admit;. ibut whether «he
generad strike -win'end in success or

preparedness or otherwise of the . Socialist Party, "for it |s upon the political .rathe^ thah. upon the Industrial

What, asketT-r the speaker, is tho
cause of this terrible death rate? Gas
and coal dust explosions, falls of roof
and coal, are' among the many causes.
I presume the Creek waters still rush
down to the Elk; and scientists says
that -there' is over a mile of water in
the air, but how much do the employers use'to wet the airways? The em-
.ployers bave no conscience; they have
a gizzard, and nothing else. The
risks; men take are great. Tliey
are, so '-familiar with the dangers
around them'that such risks are taken
in order to make a wage. A satisfactory wage scale; would, throw the responsibility upon the miner himself. It
would then make it as safe as ranching. jQwo.' ithe various companies1 pay
interest and secure a maximum of
safety to-ihelr employees? I say they
can. The owners had no difficulty in
the discovering of the,coal measures
for they commenced operations on; the
surface. I claim that all thewmlnes

DENVER, Colo., May 4.—(Special)
—After a week of fighting, in which
at least twenty-one funocent women
and children and six men are known
to have been murdered and cremated
by the hired gunmen of the coal operators wearing the uniform of the national guard of Colorado, tihe armed
forces of striking coal miners and
militiamen are holding their positions
tonight under an armed truce while
prominent men of the state are meeting day and night at the state house
'trying to relieve the terrible situation.
Never before in tbe history of the
world has there heen a slaughter or
innocents whioh aroused such horror
as that at Lud-iow, Colorado.
There were 406 women and children
in the tent colony. Of these 200 have
arrived at Trinidad, twenty-one are
known lo 'be dead and the others are
missing.
Probably the most terrible and sickening phase of this inhuman slaughter
of the wives and children of the striking coal miners wais the burning bythe gunmen militiamen of twenty to
thirty bodies In a huge funeral pyre.
Por -three days these murderous assassins 'prevented red cross nurses
from going to the scene of the massacre. ' It is believed that many of 'the
wonw.il an-d babes died from suffocation who could have been saved had
'«ilie nviK'tia allowed them relief. One
doctor who went from Aguilar to the
scene of tho wholesale murder to ad*-
*m*inJster relief was driven back by
the bullets of these same gunmen militiamen.
In one ditch alone were found the
distorted bodies of eleven small children and two women showing t^at
they had died suffering great agony.
From every section of the country
have comeioffers of anmed assistance
and checks wltih which to buy arms
and food that the striking coaJ miners
may continue their,fight against, tlie
coal operators. Union of ficlals-hope

weeks.
Since Monday owo weeks a so wheu
150 assassins of the operators hi' ml-
IKiaaucn's uniform attacked the Lud-
low tent colony with machine gun-H
and explosive bullets slaughtering and
cremating '£\ women and children who
havo been found and probably 100
more who are missing, the struggle
has continued without cessation.
Proof has been established by eye
witnesses before coroners' Juries that
-Xiculs Tikas, leader of the Greeks, was
beaten to death with a revolver, then
kicked In the face and finally «hot to
cover up the heinous crime; slain women ami children were not only
thrown into/a huge funeral pyre and
bunied, but living mothers and babes
were burned to doath according "to
the testimony of 'Witnesses whtf havo"
usctuped from the horrible disaster at
I.ud'low. '
And with all of this John D. Rocke:
feller calmly announces that he will
never conifer with hie mt-n, thut ho
will lose overy cent in his war by machine guns and torches on dffanseless
women and children, and that his
Sun-Jay School teaching conscience is

country to the peril that confronts

Prominent society women of Denver have organized relief committees
to receive conti lbutions of money and

headquarters of the United Mine

Since hundreds have been made honw.

these contributions, ao matter how
small, have .been greatly aprreciated.

until overy ono lias gone the way of
the slaughtered ,27 bef-ora they will

to the coal operators and tbe corporation owned staite militia.
Indication's are that the long-henaid-
ed industrial revolution has started.
Men in every walk of- life are organizing themselves Into volunteer companies, armin« themselves., and awaiting
the caM to arms to prevent the further
slaughter of their brothers and sisters.
The typographical union, one of the
most conservative in the country, bas
contributed |500 "to buy arms and am.
munition." ,
Saturday 1.000 women stormed Hip
state capitol at 10 o'clock In the morning and demanded that Governor Elins
>I. Ammons call for federal troops. He
refused but the women remained at
thoir post un-lil 8 o'clock in the evening and forced lilm to Issue the call.
Today in a pouring rain storm 10,.

These militiaaien who draw salary

WAGE-LABOR   aiid
W*t£ib Jt JL JL jflL JLs#- •• •
d-kikick'knnnkitkb'k'k't
*
By CARL MARX   |
Let us finally suppose that the
money price of labor remains the
same, while in consequence of t^e
employment of new 'machinery or on
account of a good season, or for some
similar reason, .there iB a fall -in the
price of all agricultural and manufactured goods. iFor the same amount of
money the 'laborers can now buy more
■commod'ijties of all lands. Their wages
have therefore risen, just because
their money price has not changed.
The money price of .labor, the nominal amount of wages, does not -there-
.fore fall together with the real wages,
that is, with 'the" amount of commodities that may" practically be obtained
in exchange for the wages. Therefore
if we speak "of the rise and fall of
wages ihe money-1 .price of labor or
Uie nominal wxge is not the only
thing which we must-keep in view.
But neither the nominal wages, that
is, *tthe amount of money for which the
laborer sells 'himself to tlie employer,
nor yet the real wages, that is, the
amount of convmoditle-s which he can
buy for this money, exhaust tlie relations which are comprehended in tiie
term wages.
For the .meaning of tihe word ls
chiefly determined by its relation to
■(.he gain or profit of the employer-
it is ;t proportionate and relative expression,
The rc-ai wage expresses the price
of .labor in relation to the price of
other commodities; the relative wage,
on tlie contrary, expresses tlie iprioe
of direct labor in relation to tliat of
stored-up labor, the relative value of
wage-labor and capital, the proportion-
ate value of capital and laborer.
Real wages may remain the same,
or they may rise, and yet the relative
wages may none the les® liave fallen.
Lrt us assume, for example, that tihe
price of all the means of subsistence
has fallen by two-thirds, while a day's
wages have only fallen one-third, as,
for instance, from three shillings to
two. Although the laborer bas a larger amount of commodities at his dis-
■posal for bis two shiHing.s.than he bad
before for three, yet hi& wages are
nevertheless diminished In proportion
to the capitalist's gain. The capitalist's profit—the -manufacturer's, for instance—'has been augmented by a shilling, since "the smaller sum of exchange value which he pays to the la-
•borer, the laborer has to produce a
(larger sum of exchange, value than he
dhl before. The value of capital ia
raised in proportion to the vailue of
labor. The division of social wealth
between capital and labor has become
more disproportionate. The capitalist
commands a larger amount of labor
with the same amount of capital. The
power of the capitalist class over the
(laboring class is increased; -the soaial
position of the laborer has dotorlorat-
ed, and is depresSa another degree
below that ot the capitalist
What then is the general law
which determines the rise ond fall of
wages and profit in their reciprocal
reflation? —
They stand In inverse proportion to
one another. Capital's exchange value,
profit, rises in the same proportion in
which .the exchange value of labor,
wages, sinks; and conversely. The
rise in 'profit is exactly measured by
the fall In wages, and the fall ln iproflt
by the rise in wage?.
The objection may perhaps be made
that ihe capitalist may have gained a
profit by adventurous exchange of his
(Products with other capitalists, or by
a rise lu the demand for his goods,
whether in consequence of the open
ine of new markets, or of a greater
demand In tiie old markets; that the
profit of the capitalist may thus increase by mians of over-reaching another capitalist, Independently of the
rise and fall of wages and the exchange value of labor; or that dio
profk of the capitalist may also rise
through an improvement In the implements of labor, a new application of
natural forces, and so on.
Hut it must nevertheless be admitted that the roatik remains the same,
.although it i» brought about In' a dlf-
fonmt way, The capitalist has ac-
tjuirt-d a larger amount of exclMMfio
value with the iwune amount of labor,
w-Hheut having had to pay a higher
l»riee for the labor on that account;
that is to Miy, a lower price has been
liaid for tlm labor lu proportion to the
net profit. wli Mi It vUAAh »o tht» cap!
tallst.
Besides we must remember that In
splt-e of th* fluctuations In the price
of commodities, th* avwniie price of
oach eomaiodIty—-tlie proportion In
Which lt exchanges for otlnnr eommoA.
Ities—is determined by Its con? td pro-
diiretlon. Thi» ovem,noMn.ir and trt.M<«i*
that go on within the capitalist class
thwfow necessarily cancel oue an-
otht-r Improvement■» !n machinery
aim! new applications of natural forces
to the service of production enable
them to turn oui In a given time with
the wtnw amount of labor and capital
a larger quantity of products, but hy
no means a larger quantity of ex
change value. If by the application of
the spinn-tog-jenny L can turn out twice
as muoli thread in as hour as I could
before its invention; for instance, a
hundred pounds instead of fifty,, that
is, because the cost of production has
been halved, or because at the -same
cost I can turn out double the amount
of products.
Finally in wnatsoerer 'proportion the
capi-tal'lst classes—the bourgeoisie—
whether of one oountry or of the mar-
ke' af the w-hole worid—share among
themselves the net, profits,of production, the total amount of those net profits always consists merely of the
amount by which, -taking all In all, direct labor has been increased' by
means of stored up labor. The sum
total increases, therefore, in the proportion la which iabor augments capital; 'that is, in the proportion in which
profit arises as compared with wages.
Thus we see that even it we confine
ourselves to the relation between capital -and wage-labor, the interests of
capital are in direct antagonism to the
interests of wage-labor.
A rapid increase of capital is equal
'to a -rapid Increase of .profits. Profits
can only make a rapid Increase, if the
exoliange value of labor—the relative
wage—makes an equally rapid decline.
The relative wage may decline, although the actual wage rises along
with the nominal waige, or money
■price of laibor; if only it does not rise
in the sarnie proportion as profit. Por
instasice, if when trcide is good, wages
rise five per ceiK, and .profits on the
other hand thirty per cent, then the
proportional or relative wage has not
increased but declined.
Thus if 'the receipts of the laborer
increase with 'tihe rapid advance of
capital, yet at the same time 'there is
a widening of thfe social gulf which
separates the laborer from the capitalist, nnd also an increase in the
power of capital over labor and in .the
dependence of labor upon capital.
The 'meaning of the statement that
the 'Laborer has an Interest ln the
rapid increase of capital is merely
ithis: tibo-faster the laborer increases
his master's dominion, the richer will
■be the crumbs that he will get from
his table; and the greater the ti umber
the laborers that can be employed and
called into existence, the greater wiH
be ithe number of slaves of whioh capital .will >be the owner.
We have seen that even the most
fortunate" event for the working glass,
the speediest possible increase of capital, however much it may improve the
•material condition of the (laborer, cannot abolish the opposition between his
interests and those of the 'bourgeois or
capitalist class. Profit and wages remain Just as much as ever in Inverse
proportion.
When   capital   ia  increasing  fast,
means of a more complete suMivisigca
of labor, or 'by the more extended use
•and cominual improvement of maohln-
ory. The 'more numerous 'She departments Into which labor is divided', and
the more gigantic the seal© in .which
machinery is introduced, in ao much
tine greater 'proportion does the cost
of .production decline, and so munch the
more fmiiitfiuMs^-tihe labor. Thus arises
a manifold rivalry,among ca-pd-fcaliste
with itbe object of increasing the subdivision of laibor and 'machinery, and
keeping up the utanost,■possible progressive raifce of exploitation.
Now, if by -meanis of a greater subdivision of laibor, 'by the employment
and impravomenit ot new machines, or
by -the more skilful and profitable use
of the forces of-nature, a capitalist has
discovered the means ot 'producing a
larger amount of oommodiitios than
hiis competitors with the same amount
of labor, whether 4-t be st»red-up labor or ddredt—if he can, for instance,
spin a complete yard of cotton in tho
time that *hl&oo*m<petitor8 take ito spin
half a yard—how will this captbaiMst
proceed to aot?
'He miighit go oa selling 'half a yard
at its fonmer market price, but tliat
would not have the effect of driving
his opponents out of the field and increasing his own sale. But the need
of Increasing his sale has increased
in 'the same proportion as his production. Tlie mor© effective and amoro ex-.
■pensive means of production whioh he
'lias called into existence enable -Hunt
of course, to sell his wares cheaper,
but they also compel him -to sell imore
wares and to secure a much larger
market tor them. Our capitalist will
'therefore proceed bo sell bds half yard
of cotton cheaper than his competitors. ■ '
The -capitalist will not, however, sell
his complete yard so cheaply as his
competitors se-ll the half, although its
emtire production does not cost Mm
more -than the production of half costs
the others. For in this caste be would
gain nothing, but would only get (back
the cost of its production. The contingent increase in his receipts iwould
result from his baring set in motion a
•larger capital, but not from ta/vtag
made his capital more profitable than
that of <the others. Besides, the gains
the end he ls aiming at lt he prices Ms
goode a slight percentage -Kiwer (thorn
Ms competitors. He drives thom off
the field, and 'wrests from them, at
any rate, a .portion of their aale, if
only he undersells them. And Sultrily,
■we must remember that the price current always stands either above or bellow, the cost of production*, according
as the sale ot a commodity is transacted at a favorable,or unfavorable
period of business. Ajcoon&ng as the
market price of a yard of dotto. is
abovo or below *ta fawner coot of pro-
tal will rise much Caster. The actual
position of the laborer has Improved,
but it ds cut the expense of his socks
poeition. The soolal gulf wWcfo separates him from the capitalist has widened.
Finally, the meaning ot fortunate
conditions for wage-labor, and of tbe
quickest possible increase of productive capital, is merely this. The Coster
the working classes enlarge and extend the hostile power that dominates
over thom 'the better will be tho condi-
tion under which they will -he allowed
to tobor -for the further increase of
bourgeois dominion and for the widen
extension of the power of capital, and
thus contentedly to forge for themselves the golden chains by which the
bourgeois drags them In its train.
But are the Increase of productive
capital and ithe rise of wages so India-
sotubly connected as the bourgeois
economists assert t We can hardly ibe.
Ileve thot the fatter capital beoomes
the more will its slave be pampered,
The bourgeois Is too much enlighten-
ed. and keeps Its accounts much too
carefully, to care for that privilege of
the feudal nobility,, the ostentation of
splendor In its retinue. The very con.
d'.tions of bourgeois existence compel
it to keep careful accounts,
W© must therefore Inquire mare
closely Into the effect which tiie incroaso of productive capital Ima upon
wages,
With the general Increase of the
prodHctive'capital of a,bourgeois so-
cleiy a manifold accumulation of labor
force takt;8 place. The (capitalists in-
rri'iinf* fn number and In power. The
Increase In the number of capitalists
increase* the competition between
capitalists. Their increased power
gives them the means of leading into
the industrial battlefield mightier
armies of laborers furnished with gl-
entitle implements ot war.

But how d-d 'these "circumstances, to
Reparable as they are from tibe dn-'
crease of productive capital, affedfc tho
deteraitoaition of the amount of wages?
The greater division of labor enables on© fabarer to do Uie work of £lv©,
■tenv twenty; if-'therefore mul*tipM©8
itihe campaWtion.' among laborers, five,
ten, or twenty times. The Jaborers
do not only compete when one sells
himself cheaper than another, they
also compete when one does the work
ot five, ten, or. twenty; and the.division ot laibor* wMch capital introduces
aud •oohitiuairy increases, compete #.e
•laborer to enter into .this kind of competition with ono another,
-, Further, in tho same proportion, in
which, tihe -dlvislonot laibor is Increased
the labor Itself is etmpMed. Th© »p©-"
cial skdll of *the laborer becomes
iwonthless. It is changed into a monotonous and uniform power production,
which can give play neither to bodily
nor initellectual elasticity. Ita tabor
becomes, accessible to evoryibody.
Compeltltorsp therefore, throng initio it
from all sides; and (besides, we *mus|t
remember that tho more single and,
easily learnt the labor is, and the 'less
it costs a man to make hlmsolf (mooter of 'St, eo much the low©r must its
wages sink, since itohoy are determined,
dike th© price of every other commodity*, by 'its cost of production.
Therefore, exactly as tha labor be-
com-es -more satisfactory and unpteas-
amt, in that very proportion camipati-
iflon Increases and wages deollne. Th©
laborer does Ms best to 'maintain;the
itate of wages by performing laor© laibor, (whether by working for a greaiter
■numiber of hours, or by working harder
in th© same time. 'Thus driven by
necessity, h© himself increases **he
evil of the subdivision of labor. < So
the result is this: itho anore he labors
th© lees reward he .receives for it; and
that for this simple reason—that he
competes against his fellow workmen,
and ithus compels th-em to .compete
against Mm, and tto offer their labor
on as .wretched' conditions as lie does;
and Chat he thus, In the laat (result,

which ithe capitalist, who toad employ
ed the new and profitable means of
production, exceeds to Its sale the
'actual coat of its production, to him.
But our capitalist does not find his
privilege very lasting; - Other rival
capitalists introduce with more or less
rapidity, tlie some machines and the
same subdivision of labor; and this introduction ibeoames general, until tbe
price of the yard, of doth in reduced,
not only below its oW. but below Its
new, cost of production.
Thus the capitalists find themselves
relatively in the same position' in
wBich they stood before tbe' introduction of the new means ot production,
and if they are by these mean* enabled to offer twice the product for ithe
same price, they now find themselves
compelled to offer the doubled amount
tor less than the old price. Prom tiie
standpoint of (these new means of production the old game begins smew.
There is greater subdivision of labor,
more machinery, and more rapid pro-
«ress in the exploitation of both.
Whereupon competition 'brings ahout
the aame reaction against this reeu*.
Thus we seo how the -manner and
mcams of production are conUnualiy
means of enHotlng than of discharging its todutrtrial reenrtte. Tho senor-
ais, or capitalists, vie with one another
as to who «so dispense with the great
est number of his eoWlere.-
The economists repeatedly assure us
that the 'laborers wbo ore rendered superfluous hy the machines find new
branches of employment.
Thoy have not the hardihood direct-
ly >to assent that the laborers who are
discharged enter upon the new'branches of labor. The facts cry out too tend
against such a lie as tbls. They only
declare that for other divtslono of the
laboring class, as, for instance, for (his
rising generation of laborers who .wetoe
Just ready <to enter upon the deftindt

that is a great satisfaction for tbo dis.
missed laborers. The worshipful owp-
(ballets will not find their-fresh supply of exploitable flesh and blood run
-short, and will let the dead bury their
dead. Thia Is Indeed a consolation
with which the bourgeois awn-tort
themselves rather than the lutoorers.
If the <whole class of wago laborers
were annihilated by tho machines, how

Tliat Is the law which «ontin«oHy
drives bourgeois proiluctlon out of its
old track, and compels capital to Intensify the productive powers of labor for the very reason that it has
already intensified them—the law that

There ie a very marked increase in
the fatalities from faals of roof and
coal. Of the 18 fcriaJities from this
cause 6 (or one-thlrd)'-were suffocated'
In Hne coal. All three of the fatal' accidents . at Hosmer were Dram 'this
cause, audi at Coal' Creek three were
suffocated..;,
These accidents were from fato ot
coal to friable seams, on a pitch <#
6& degrees as at Hostmier, and from
suddea pressure or -bumi-ps; as at Coal
Q*eek, torfeaking down a* nuinber of
sets without warning *md. burying the
unfortunate men in fine coal.

R-egulatio'ii "Act, and proposes in writ-
tog", to the; managers of,the various
oolUeries a-'^peoial Rule "covering reh
question''Of" "Systematic Timbering
and' Spiaggtog" at the Avorking face.
. J,|R*eo6go4zin'g that, owing- to the
wid%; varying conditions in the dtf-
fereot cbMierles' in the provinces-even
■in. the; sarnie field and often in the
same amine—a hard and fast rule on
systematic timbering would render
such rule often impracticable, making
the same itwaild, and even often tending to bring about the very conditions
that we.are aiming to prevent; there*
-fore, before formulating amy such rule,
the ■milnlster.Mn keeping with his for-
'mer policy, would like to avail him-
eeM of your assistance and cooperation In this very important matter, and
iwe beg to submit the following for
your -consideration:
"(1) The manager shall submit to
the Minister of Mines a systematic
method of timbering for the mine, division or subdivision of the mine. This
shall indicate the average height of
the seam*, the kind of timber used, the
rolttlmumdiameter of such timber, the
maximum distance that shall exist between the props, timoers and other
roof supports, aad -between such props,
ttenibeirs and other roof supports and
the Slides and face of the working
place or face,
"Should the minister approve of
such 'Systematic Method of Timbering'- a notice or notices of such method
sliaill be kept posted in a legible manner at the entrance to such mine, di-
vis-iori or subdivision of the same.
"(2) It shall be the duty of the
workman In charge of a working place
which shall include such-working; place
and for a d-Istance of fifteen feet back
from the face to keep the props, timbers or ottoer roof supports as designated' in the 'Notice of Systematic
^Imiberlng"- .governing the mine, division or B-uibdivisdon of such time in
which he Is employed.
. /'Nothing in such notice shall preclude or prevent the use of onore
•props, timbers or other roof supports,
or the erection of the same, should, the
workman or any of the officials deem
sucb necessary for safety."
"(3) In addition to the requirements of Rule 2, as to timbering, every
workman -in charge of a place shall
set suWicieint sprags or other; supports
for the uniJfcnnined coal, provided
that before, commieuclng to mine he
shall set one sprag or other support
andr not less then one for every six
feet of su^undermln-lng.	
to ho larg-e the following
'       Circular Letter
was sent to all mine managers in the
province: *  y _-.  '
"Sir,—For a! number of years past
the percentage of total accidents from
falls (>t root and coal at thejworking
faces has ran-getf from 35 to 60 per
cent of the total accidents <tye to the
industry. I regret to say tbat during
the,first five mouths of the present
year there have been twelve total ac-
eddeflts from theee causes, or three
more than during the 'whole ot last
year.
"Owing to the large Increase 1n thin
class of accidents, the honorable -the
Minister of .Mines deems It necessary
to avail himself of the powers given
him in 8ection 101 of the Coal 'Mines
"(4) Temporary props Bhall only
be -withdrawn- iby use of a dog and
chain, or other type of timber-drawing
machine, unless permanent timber has
been set before such -withdrawal, a-nd
no permanent iprop, timber, or other
roof supports shall be finally wltn-
drawa wlthout«the use of such ^miber-
drawing device.
.""Trusting to,'liave your hearty cooperation in this,- we await your sug-
gpstlonsl"
I am pleased to say that a large
majority of the managers In the province heartily endorsed the suggestion
and all, with the exception of two or
thrt-e who have since complied, wore
In a position to start ths present year
■under a method of systematic timbering.
Great Britain
An official blue book just published
affords an interesting Insight info the
conditions of olbtailniing in the Irish
capital. According to the report of
sanitary authorities the housing ooa-
dfltdons are so deplorable that at least
14,000 miust at once be built in -order
to meet the most meagre requirement* Over 20,000 families have oro-
ly one room whilst 1500 families-live
in single cellars which have been converged into living room*. 33.9 pel" cent
of all ,the dwellings in Dublin have
only one room. In the case of 12000
auch dwellings an average of 6.1 'pei^
■sons live to the one room. There are
98 persons living in one house,, in
anmrher 74, etc. The sanitary oondi-
ttons are everywhere In an indescribable condition, whilst the general conditions are most degrading. The -report further emphasizes the fact tfhat
of the owners of these houses 14 are
town counsellors. As regards *he
wages, 5,600 fathers of faiinlMes receive
not more than 15s. 2d. per week, 900

The Special Rule as finally adopted
Is uniform throughout the province;
the method of Umbering under the
rule is drawn, up to suit the looal -conditions of each mine:
Special Rule, Systematic Timbering
"(a) The manager of the mine
shall cause to be posted at a conspicuous 'place near the mouth of the
■mine, a notice stating the minimum
size of the diifferent types of Umber to
be used in such mine, and the maximum distance ibetween the timbers
and between the timbers and the toce
and sides of the working pla«e.
"(b) In the event of two or more
methods of timbering being used ia
one mine, then In addition to the notice posted at the mouth of the mine,
a notice shall be posted at the entrance to each section or district, stating the method of timbering to be
used in such section or district of such
mine.
"(c) It shall be the duty of the
miner In charge of a working place—
which shall Includ-e such working
■place and a distance of fifteen feet
•back from the face—to keep the props,
thnbws or other roof supports erected
as designated in the 'Notice ot Systematic Timbering" governing the
mine, 'division ofsubdlvision of such
mine in which he is employed.
"(d) Nothing in this section shall
prevent a miner from setting supports,
or an official from requiring the miner
to set supports in his workWg place
at more frequent intervals than those
specified dn the notice aforesaid,
rwhere necessary for safety.
"(e) Every miner'in charge of a
working place shall set sufficient
sprags or other supports for the undermined coal, provided that before
commencing to mine he shall set one
sprag or other support, and not less
than one for every,six feet of such
undermining.
"(f) Temporary props shall only 'be
■withdrawn by use of a dbg and chain
or other type of timber-drawing ma-
-chine, unless permanent timber has        .	
been set before such withdrawal, and j -sent-ed in these dlcte.
no permanent prop, timber or other
roof support shall  be  finally  wlth-
draJwn without the use of such timber-
drawing device."
The  Dangers of
Indigestion
r*m
Tou simply can't be well—mat is,.
really well—if your digestion is bad,
for your  very  food  may poison you  ,
unless it is digested.   That is why in- >
digestion  (imperfect digestion)  is the
root  cause ot"   nearly  ail   our minor  .'
ailments and ot many serious ones too.   ,
Food should nourish your body, and  .
make.g'"j'i the daily waste which oevw
stops, but it can't do that unless your.  •
stomach diesis it,   No wonder dyspeji-  -.
tic men and women are always weak./
and ailing—they're starved and often '
poisoned too.    Starved, mind you, not  -
/or lack   of    food,   but  because they   ,-
don't digest the food they eat.  Poison-     '
ed, not;, by eating bad food, but because
tn*eA stomachs    are weak    *nd their
bowels inactive, and so the food they
eat ferments and gives off   poisonous
gases which are carried by  the blood
stream to every part of  the body.   It
13   because   Mother   Seigel's   Curative
Syrup possesses in a remarkable degree the power to tonp, strengthen and
regulate  the action  of   the  digestive
organs—tho stomach, liver and bowels
—chat it is still, after forty years' testing, tho best.known and most successful remedy for Indigestion, constipation,
biliousness  and   the  many distressing
ailments which are traceable to a weak
or disordered  condition  of   those Important organs.     Success breeds Imitators, and thftre are  many so-called
substitutes for   Mother  Seigel's Curative Syrup, but none of  them contain
the  combination    of   more   than  ten
herbal   extracts upon which  the restorative and ourattvo value of ifother
Seigel's Curative Syrup depends.      tf

REPORT OF THE ROYAL COMMISSION ON
LABOR
Whik* there may be many who disagree, personally we are compelled to admit that so far as KK-
COMMEXDATIONS are concerned, tlie Royal
Commission appointed by the McBride Government
last yoar to enquire into the condition of labor in
H. C. (nnd which lias just issued its report) lias
done its duty fairly well. Let the reader thoroughly understand: We say so far as RECOMMKXDA-
TIOXS arc concerned, realizingSiily too well that
all these commissions and reports mean just so
much extra work for the Government Printing Department, and a few fat jobs for friends, and nothing more
individuals in the enviable position of selecting any
"particular master." So far' as the selection ia
concerned, this is a privilege which the employer
enjoys, and not the worker. The' commissioners
need have no scruples about a workman being forced to work for a particular master.
The commissioners have not made many •discoveries, but tliey have discovered, or fancy they have,
the cause of the present dissatisfaction which, exists
among the working class. Their' contention that
''the dissatisfaction with existing conditions.'.arises
not from a hopeless despair, but from a deferraina-*-
tion to improve social conditions, and from a genu-
ine' spirit of human brotherhood,'" is in part correct, but were the commissioners to make the journey through the Crow's Nest Pass at this particular period, they might discover that the condition
of the worker both in British Columbia aind Alberta
was unsatisfactory in almost every respect, and
the dissatisfaction was caused not so much through
a desire to improve social conditions, as a desire to
secure thc barest means of sustenance. The commissioners appear to have swallowed one of the
great Jim Hill's quibs, namely, that discontent is
Ihe result not of the high cost of living, but of the
cost of high living. ^
Unemployment and employment agencies are also considered, and the report states "the evidence
we have received justifies' the need of^ efficient
public bureau to prevent employment.agencies being conducted solely for profit. The usual palliatives, that municipal employment bureaus and national labor bureau be established is one of their
suggestions. Fortnightly payday and negotiable
time checks are among some of the suggestions:

report, but would advise all who are interested to

.BY-L-J-YW NUMBER 147
if the parties in power make no effort tojagkjng fol. a eopy 0f the report.   Jt will prove very
adopt   tlie   recommendations  suggested.    Still,   in
fairness to the commission, which was limited in
its scope and barred from enquiring in a district
where real trouble existed, we will admit they l^ave
done more than we expected. Their report might
form the basis, with certain additions, of a very
progressive labor platform, and the workers of B.
C. would do well to read this report very carefully.
To review the report thoroughly would occupy
"too much space, but there are several portions with
which we shall deal in this and subsequent issues,
such portions having particular reference to our
own industry.
Commenting upon International Unions and the
objections raised by some, the commission makes
the following comment:—
•'Whilst some employers oppose international
unions on the grounds that the authority exercised
"by the union officials resident,in the United States
■Hiiaj'-pTOuuce-coTiditTOTrrlnjwrOT
dustrial interests, yet we find no definite evidence
of any,such effect; and, on the other hand, it must
be said that many large corporations employ managers and superintendents and are controlled by
directors who arc themselves aliens,"
The last paragraph is rather an unkind rub for
those self-satisfied  patriotic, and  in 'many cases
effective campaign literature, and should be interesting reading to all who appreciate the necessity
of political action.
WHY RAILROAD COMPANIES PREFER
WHITE LABOR
We were amused the other day when reading ;i
statement credited to Sir Thomas Shaughnessy.
i'resident of the C. P. R.. to the effect that "The
V. P. R. preferred white labor, but if it was hot
obtainable (AT THE PRICE) the company could
hardly be expected to stand back with folded
arms." . X
We introduced, the words between parenthesis.
It is usual to blame the printer for such omissions,
but in this ease we "fear that he is not" to blame.
Only thc other week our Lethbridge correspondent,
irHrisTroteB-rT-rite-d^^
C. P. R. had a gang of about sixty men raising tiie
track, and were paying them at the rate of 17%
cents per hour or $1.75 for ten .hours' work." The
correspondent adds: "They are all^ Russians
brought in by the company." There is. of course,
a possibility that the C. P. lt. had lei this work to
A .By-Jaw tp jaise the. sum of Five
thousand dollars-1$5,000.00)   for the
purpose "&f extending the electric light

Under the ln-ading "Discrimination against
Union Employees," the commissioners make the
following admission:—
'• Though some organizers, led astray by the pursuit of visionary aims, may go to the extreme and
would destroy much that is good in our industrial
system, it i-nnnot be doubted that the promotion of
Uie organization of lnbor is doing much tn benefit
the condition of Ihe laboring class an a whole."
The recommendations of thc commission on this
point are of such n nature that no comment is
invfi--is.ilry, but they might have mentioned "what
■is good in our industrial system."
('pon tin' ipiestinn of compulsory arbitral ion. the
comiiiisviion is compelled to admit that this method
of li'jrislation has been tried and found wanting,
nnd state: "The genera) concensus of opinion \h

Frank visited Hlllcrest on Saturday
and opened the league games tor the
season before a crowd of about 500,
whose enthusiasm: for their respective team was just tremendous. The
home team won the toss .and kicked
off on schedule time, and the game
was fast froj!u!the start and occasionally very rough. The -ball had not
been moving eight minutes ibefore the
inside left of Hlllcrest received a severe injury to his knee, which necessitated his Immediate removal to -the
hospital. The-game, -however, continued fast and exciting, and although
the home team played ten men they
'were able occasionally to take the
offenslvfe. Juat before halt time hostilities broke out In one portion of*
the field, and it looked for the moment as if this end of the American
continent was likely to be engaged in
a conflict ,as sanguine as that to the
south. The belligerents were invited
to leave the field for-the rest of the
game. PJay was resumed* with the
home team playing nine men and
Frank ten. However^ some good football was witnessed, and upon the call
of time the score was 0-0. A surprise
'was sprung upon most people during
the footlball matclL, when a brass
band, hitherto "unknown, struck up
some .lively selections. We are informed, that the band is here to stay,
nnd that its sweet xulcet strains will
gladden our summer- evenings. * So be

Hosmer and Michel opened the
league season at Hosmer on Saturday
before a fair sized' crowd, Michel sending a good contingent, who were Johnny on tiie spot, especially when lt
came to holierin*. .Michel won by two
goals to none, and won deservedly,
for they (proved themselves the superior side on tho day's play. Hosamer,
however, were -to some extent the victims of misfortune, as they lost McQueen, .who bad his ankle badly Injured after about ten minutes' play. This
was a big enough handicap, but Michel had another, stroke of good fortune in the shape of a strong wind,
which rose about half time and assisted them to press Hosmer's weakened forces almost continuously
through the second half,
Hosmer opened-the game strongly
and did all the attacking up to the
time of 'McQueen's departure. Their
forwards, however, proved to be weak,
Pow being the only one who seemed
to know where the goal lay and. how
to get there. Playing against ten men,
■Michel came'TOore and more into the
picture, their fonwards playing nice
combination. They -were, however,
prevented from scoring by good back
play and -daring goalkeeping. Half
time found the score 0-0. Hampton, of
Michel, also failed to utilize a penalty
kick, his effort to score being ludic-
■rous. ftllchel, aided by a strong wind,
commenced the second half as if they
intended to make a ten cent lunch of

For the past .month the inhabitants 	
of Beaver Mines have been looking J bridge from Scotland on Sunday morn-
forward towards hrjght prospects, and
a ruimoT got fnio circulation that the
mine .would start regular after.-May
lst to supply an order which, although
not large, would employ the tew mon
iwho remained in the camp fairly regu- i
lar. Dame Rumor, however, that fickle
jade, has once more jilted us. The
fact that the mine Worked on. Saturady
and Monday for the purpose of supplying the expected order goes bo show
that the rumor contained the germ of
truth, amd that something must have
gone wrong during the hatching process. Be that as it may, the mine
stopped 'work at 3 p. m. on Monday,
whilst the news that the order was
cancelled fell upon the camp like an
exploded bombshell, and since then
we are treated' to the unpopular music
of the three long whistles for no work.

With thy majority of people, price is the vhief

in Canada today and so many dissatisfied shoe purchasers.'"'
For low-priced shoes cannot be good, shoes—the
high cost of good materials-and skilled labor wont
permit.
Then why experiment—at the .expense-of your
comfort—with low-priced slices?    Whv uot wear
INVICTUS   SHOES.
ami be thoroughly satisfied?
Distinctive and pleasing in appearance, they possess that style individuality that is the hallmark of
fine footwear. Invictus Shoes will outwear ordinary low-priced shoes—yet they cost little more.

the citizens responded lo the call of
the Mayor to clean, plant and -beautify
the city- waB remarkable. On overy
avenue nn<J street men were seen with
various Implements and conveyance*
making short shrift of the unsightly
tilings and tlio winter's accumulation.
About COO trees were provided. Chief
McDougall was In charge of the distribution. Upwards of 12 teams wore requisitioned to bring the trees to the
city. These teams were generouMy
placed al tho disposal of the Mayor by
the business mon of the city, Around
the Provincial Court a number of men
were alto buny planting trees, n consignment of 400 plains arrived from
Calgary.
The Daughters of tbe Umpire have
ulso been busy and are contributing
materially towards the beautifying of
(he city.   It Is their Intention to plant
trees, a number of which have been
shipped ibto town, along McPherson
Ave. We hope that success will art-
tend the efforts of those .who have cx-
p-ttided so much In tills direction.
