Read before the -Marx-DietzgenCla^,
November 1, 1913     .., <;'
'fliiVr?aviDS tti8 sub-'6Ct' "Scienbe,
and Socialism," I will necessarily have
,to limit and confine myself to one
aspect pt-thls question, for It,is of
complex nature and may be approached from many viewpoints. I will deal
.with- the relationship :that modern
scientific discoveries bear to modern
scientific Socialism. .%.
,-Ut'anay also serve to facilitate the
presentation and -elucidate-the points
at question,, to formulate a method*of
procedure to which I will adhere.
The formulation, firstly,- of a brief
sketch of the scientific methods of
reasoning; secondly,. the theory of
©volution; thirdly, the relationship of
Socialism to the theory of evolution
fourthly, the scientific objection^
against Socialism- and,their answer.
Now to proceed:
Science, has for its' aim and purpose the discovery and Identity amid
diversity; that is, it subjects itself toward acquiring a method or inference
inherent in the identity, similarity'and
likeness of phenomena. A resent
blance is discerned in the most di-
•"4,,ization:/ He -had studied man.as a
'brute in."dai*ly conflict to hold his own
against .his ferocious competitorsMn
the cruel struggle for the means of
Iife.-if His-wants were low and beastly; his habitation was a cave.: Thousands of .years of progress followed,
during,*which tlmo man gradually acquired more.-strength and .power in
the struggle for ■ existence.   He "had
^made/from things he had on hand,
weapons with which he gained the
supremacy, over his enemies., Despite
this,'man could still compare himself
with the" beasts>e had conquered, in
instinct and desires.    Following this
in a comparatively i&ort time! a stupendous -transformation   had   taken
place.   This man, who had lived with
and^like beasts, who had barely held
his own against ferocious beasts of
the jungle; who had fought .without
the aid*of his fellow brutes; this man
had' now secured the mastery over
the earth, subjecting its resources to
serve his will.   He organized into na-
tions and lis now master over those
• secret subtle forces of nature before
which, in the days of yore, he humbly
prostrated  himself,  and   which  now
are his tireless servants in mine, mill
and factory.     - <•*

rived from-one branch of. study may
;be applied in gaining a glimpse 'of the
fundamental relationship it bears to
another.    A' method of reasoning is
necessary, or, better, indispensable, in
the search of identity which' science
pursues.   And it ds this method which
characterizes modern science, placing
it on the impregnable foundation it
now possesses.   The proletarian philosopher, Dietzgen, expresses the importance of adopting a scientific method of reasoning when he/says, in
his "Positive Outcome of Philosophy":
"If we could place this general work
of thinking on a scientific basis, if
we  could  find; a'theory of  general
toowledge,'.-.:• then  we  should  acquire,' for science in general and for
our. individual judgment; the\same certainty of success which-we already
ipossess in'special fields of science."
What are the successful methods we
already" possess iiii; special fields of
science? ■ . .
.There are  six 'stages of scientific
thought: '  observation,'.  experiment,
classification,.recordal, reflection and
generalization, the last named being
the c highest  and  deepest grade, for
only the .profound minds'attain to it
These factors form the indispensable
gradations of scientific procedure in
reasoning.. Wo caln Illustrate the use
of this method',by turning our attention to two,of the greatest,.if-not tho
greatest, minds of the nineteenth cen«
■tury, Charles Darmin and Karl Marx,
_andiexaininft_tli-*nir—Tn**°*M"v* °-<*n - «"W»r- -
ing to the- theory of "Natural Sel'ec-
tion and .the.Materialistic Conception
of History." ' , -
.Darwi^ spent about thirty yeaw,
in,voyages and at home, observing
and experimenting upon plants and
animals, before he announced his dis-'
coveryj . The results of these observations'and experiments he classified
and recorded.- Upon the former four
grades, he reflected, and'as the result
and culmination of the process, ho
Marx - pursued the same method,
only he- subjected to change the subordinate forms .necessitated' by the
change from'biology to the.field of
-sociology. ".The -biologists' may experiment'on more concrete .phenomena,
whereas the sociologist draws his ex."
pertinents from the expe'rlence and
history of society. After Marx read
and studied tho experiments of so.
cioty, observing history and Its vari-
ous systems, such aB chattel slavery
and feudalism, as woll as tho present
wago system, and other social manl-
Testations, aftor this, Mnrx classified,
recorded, reflected, nnd finally generalized. '   ■
To forestall any criticism that the
Comrades may press for stating tho
method pursued by two, though groat,
thinkers, and making It a general
rulo, which is undoubtedly unscientific, I could go on and point out that
this method was pursued and adoptod
by Bolontlsta In tho respootlvo *loldB
of research from tho dlsoovory of
oxygon by Dr. ^Mostly In 1744, which
Inaugurated tho scientific' ovolutlon
witnessed in the .pro-coding contury,
down to tho most reoont aclentlatB,
Including thoso of today. Certain diverging tondonclos may porliapo bo
noticed, but thoy nro of llttlo impor-
innco, nnd may bo duo to tlio dlCfor-
onco In tliolr flolds of roBearch. In
oBBonco, tho stagoB of thought enumerated nbovo nro followod by modern scIontlBtB. Wo can, thoroforo, without tho Impairment of our fundamental thesis accept tho two liiBtnnoos na
oxompllflcallona of tho aclonllflo method of procoduro.'
Homing completed the first pnrt of
our formula, .wo may now prbceod to
ItB «uccoBBor—tlio thoory of evolution,
The thoory of ovolutlon waa sot
forth long boforo tho tlmo of Darwin
and Sponcor, or any of tho naturallata
of rocont timed. HerncllUiB concolvod

daya of auvagery to our prosont civil-
tion,,and .with It the growth of the
individual from an anti-social being
to   the  collective,   pro-social   being;
.rom individual to tribe, and into.nations.   Thus it appeared- to' him. that
this growth did not occur in' a hap^
hazard fashion, but rather in had developed according and in conformity
with 'some natural, law or order, an
order.subject toychange of material
conditions'and, mental enlightenment
Possessed,' as he1 was, 'of a profound
•knowledge   of   botany   and   zoology
and .allied   subjects,' Spencer   was
already prepared for .'the task of in-
vestigation. "   ■
L/ooking around for an object which
might exemplify the process of devel-
opment best, which would not pre-
sent the complications that -sociology
harbors, and devoid of the,immensity
of subject material contained in the
astronomical field/ Spencer seized
.upon the ovum and in it speedily, dis-
corned a wonderful exemplification of
the, evolutionary process,, for it permits a detailed examination of the
growth from the, very minute part of
the yolk to the very death of the matured, being.
It is true that Spencer was noRES
original investigator in this field, and
that to Karl . Ernst vori Baer, the'
celebrated embryologist, is due the
credit for its originality, as I have
pointed out previously. But to Spencer is due the credit for'completing

-Baer, thereby placing the-basic .research .work bf the evolution theory
upon a firm foundation.   Spencer demonstrated- the development of the
ovum   from   homogeneity,   similarity
and indifferentiatiop'to' a-.state' of
hetefogeneity'and:.compound dissimi-
arity.   That is as far as Baer attained
in his discovery.   Spencer -went further.   He pointed out that this change
ifrom similarity to.compound- dissimilarity was accompanied with ascbrres-
ponding flux.from indefiniteness to de-
flnltenesa;   that  is,   the  process  of
'.change from a structureless mass to
a separation of structure, resulted in
the formation of definite organs. ' Proceeding further, Spencer showed that
along with this flux there is'a growth
from disconnection and Incoherence to
a consistent   connection  and   coher-
ence,   iWlth this advance In' his discovery, Spencer proved tho lack of
Interdependence   characterizing ' the
early stage of the homogeneous "mass
oi; thp ovum, and its growth toward
a stato of Interdepondonco in tlio, da-
volQped form of tho ovum, in which'
each unit Is esBentlnl toward the welfare of onch orgnn, and each definite
organ Js'indispensable toward tho life
of tho ovum.   In substanco, Spencer's
theory  In  this connection is   this:
That from a structureless mass   a
process of differentiation" Into- units
follows, which  units,  in  n  further
process   of   devtVoDmenr,   Integrate
forming  definite organs, composing
tho whole, each with a cortnln function,-tho fulfillment of which is no-
cossnry toward the maintenance of
tbo wliolo bolng.
But what did Sponcor accomplish
n this ontlro search Into the developing procoss o£ tho ovum? Ho moroly
elaborated and described tho dovolop-
mont or tho evolutionary process of
«m Individual orgnivlsm, with Its form
of organisation. It wns nocossnry to
tost the application of this process
on a lnrgor scnlo In tho vogotablo nnd
nn mnl kingdoms. This ho did,, and
with ndmirnblo succoss. Jioro, as tn
tho ovum, ho demonstrated tho tendency to tloflnltonoss, cohoroncy, hoto-
Whon Sponcor came, however, to
tho inorganic world, nnd sought to on.

prosontod Itself. It la triio that In

't .The following was unavoidably held
over "from last week:
V'Ths third annual -memorial service
-commemorating the Bellevue mine disaster-was held here Dec. 9, under the
auspices of Local 431, U. M. "W. .of "A.,
before a packed hall.
,- Order of. service: "Jerusalem, my
happy 'home," -band; ;'Great God; our
Sovereign Lord," hymn; prayer; "'Beyond tho smiling and the weeping,"
anthem; Scripture reading, Psalm xo;
■address, David Hyslop (Coleman);
Dead March in Saul, Band; sermon,
W. H. Irwin; solo, "Crossing the bar,"
Wm. Gallimore; 'Xead, Kindly Light,"
" 'Mr. Hyslop was introduced by Rev.
Irwin with a few appropriate remarks.
The speaker (Mr. HyBlop) pointed
out that he only represented the miners of District 18 In so far ashe-was
a miner himself. He pointed out that
it was a remarkable thing that miners
did ' not keep account of time' by
years, but by events, such as the one
they were commemorating that night,
strikes, lockouts, etc. At one time
^these catastrophes wqre considered
to be visitations of God, but now we
looked upon them as caused by Ignorance and greed for profits, but the
last was only possible by the presence
of the first. Yet all these catastro.
phes had ibeen the means of our progress. , For instance, it was loss of &
good number of lives; that gave us the
law of two outlets to every mine in
place of one, and so on.. But we were
not here to -mourn forrthose who had
lost^ their . lives, * as no amount of
mourning could help them*, but rather
to consecrate ourselves to the redemption of the human family to a1 higher
standard of living, to create within us
that spirit of .brotherhood wherein we
recognize we are our brothers' keepers, to make possible the kingdom of
God upon earth:        "■-     '
At the close of Mr.- Hyslop's address
the band played the'Dead March in
Saul, followed.directly by Rev. W. H.
Irwin with his sermon, of which we
give the'following excerpt:
"'• Text, Revelation vll., 14, "These are
they who came out of great tribulation.".  v- V*-" ■   ' .''.   *
The congregation tonight is compos-
Some' have made a condescension In
coming to a religious service, others1
ln entering a hall built by a- labor
movement. We have theological differences, philosophical differences,
and many other "differences,'but. on
one thing we stand on common
ground.and that is.that anything that
has the single object of removing the
possi-bility of such an' occurrance" as
that »which we commemorate tonight
Is a good thing. I find,it hard to' be-,
lievo that men at this stage of exist-"
ence consider the lives of their fellows in terms of dollars. The fact is
we are In the throes of a strange'dual-
ism. On one hand the material order,
with Its iron laws and Its uncha'ng-
able goal insists upon.a certain line of
action for men, while on the other
hand there Is that Influence which I
like to call tho rellotious—-our love for
our fellows—insisting on the contra*
diction of tho other with nil the emphasis of our'natures to the .point of
martyrdom. This Is tho old fight between God and mammon being fought
oach day In every human brain and
demanding n decision from lis ono way
or tho other, We usually decide In
that easy but cowardly way, by a
compromise. Wo dotermlno that each
shall havo just so much part and fix
a point in either enso beyond which
wo think wo will not go. But thoro
Is compromise without a struggle, Religion revolts against bolng doprlvod
of anything short of tho dominance or
the wholo of our bolng, though temporarily tho bronrl question nonius to
demand Its share. Tho fight of democracy is not only bolng fought on
tho Industrial flold, but It Is bolng
fought on that higher field, tho flold
of consclouBncBH, and whon wo loast
oxpoct to find lt mon Ho upon unoasy
plllown and pass hIoopImb nights bocauso tho Imtllo of democracy Is Hurg-

.depression/over a community which
=wili lastfor" years. It will be the subject _of widespread newspaper comment,'but'lIt is "more than that' It is
the gatling.gun of democracy driving
everywhere.the conviction that something is wrong. <I think here again, we
in this memorial service stand upon
common ground. We may differ, as
to what i3 wrong, or upon the remedy
to he applied, but we all admit that
something is wrong. It takes not a
mine explosion to show us that fact,
but a mine explosion does show us
that it is.time to act. A man will put
off fire insurance until he wrestles
with a miniature blaze; he will trifle
with an infirmity until he is incapacitated ifor business. Something is
wrong and. we trifle with that fact
until a mine explosion tells us that it
is time toact. Who are these clad in
the white garments of a new order?
.These are they who have passed
through great tribulation and their
decisions have caused their garments
to be washed in the blood of martyrdom.
We don't care to think of this as a
world of tribulation, we deplore the
fact that it is. We urge upon men to
seek joy x and ,wealth and'all that
makes - for (human comfort, ■ but it
must be admitted that the men who
today are bearing the greatest responsibilities, TVho are startling the world
with their-discoveries—and we stand
in awe at their reforms—that these
men are not the products of the mar-
,ble halls of comfort. They oame from

Monday evening next all roads' will lead to the
Grand Theatre, and on that occasion we hope to
have a bumper night and several hundred dollars
over to forward to the kiddies on the Island, Those
of us who passed through the last strike here know
that while there were few empty cupboards many
little inconveniences were suffered owing to the absence of ready cash, and knowing this our sympathies go out to the wee ones who may lack those
comforts so essential to childhood. Warm shoes
and warm clothing are needed by the children on
Vancouver Island, in spite "of what the emigration
agent, may tell you in tho Old Country about the
tropical climate enjoyed there, and worn shoes and
threadbare clothing have been responsible for defeat in more than one industrial fight. Parents will
endure all manner of hardship themselves, but when
it comes to seeing their offspring,suffer, then matters assume another aspect, and the sequel we know.
It is to help in avoiding this sequel that we are
holding this concert.
Tbe prizes will also' be handed to the successful
contestants in our heading competition on that
night, and as there will be over,twelve to distribute
we hope to secure a record house.
The night is Manday; the date is December 22;
the time is 8 p.m. There will be a special late
train for the Coal Creek people.

that a handsome sum may be realized for those deprived of their breadwinners in the disastrous calamity.

The soothing effects of oil upon turbulent waters
have often been demonstrated, but it has been left
to a Sertaiu literary genius in Fernie to- prove the
healing propensities of this unctuous fluid upoh*an
editorial conscience. Possibly this is- another instance of the "Kimona of Charity," although" we
fancy that there are occasions-when this "garment
assumes the transparency bf the diaphanous skirt.
A letter from a woman who appears to be able to
add two and two 'together, to the Indianapolis
News, commenting.on the'strike of teamsters in this
city, deals with the question where the workers are
forced to the industrial battlefield. .
AVe copy the letter,'' To tho Editor of Indianapolis News":
I overheard a member of a large dry goods company of this city hold forth on tlie teamsters' strike
to this effect: "Why do they want to strike? They
have been working fpr us for years, and have .always been treated with fairness. Any man who
proved himself good had every consideration from
the company always. I know four or five of our
men—good men—who are causing themselves and
tlieir families only distress by their walk-out. For
I know for a fact that they haven't a,dollar to go
on until this thing is settled—not a dollar, and I
know it. Now, what good can come to them of this
But it seems to nie that he had very sufficiently
ansvyered his own question, "Why do they strike?"
for if a man must work "for years" and then find
himself "without a dollar to go orr" in case of
exigency, isn't it time he did strike?       ■.
Don't these people have their funerals, weddings,
births, accidents, illnesses and other exigencies just
as may the man who has "a dollar to go on?" The
writer is non-union, has no "occasion to be", but so
amusing an argument is worthy, of some comment.
The lesson is obvious. An employer who does not
pay a sufficient.wage to'tide those who are working for him over the common vicissitudes that are
sure to come, sooner or later, to "feach of us, is himself a beggar of ,the public's bounty. .Common decency should demand that the worker be accorded
a sufficient wage to preclude the necessity of charity at the first mishap.'
But to shame the average employer-into recog-
Two thousand three hundred men wero killed in
the mines of the United States in the year 1912.
No one was arrested, tried or convicted or imprisoned for tho death of tho 2,300 miners who
were killed because of the negligence and greed of
the men who own tho mines in which'they worked.
In Colorado officials of tlio United Mine Workers
of America have been indicted, They didn't kill
anyone.   All they did was to organize the miners
nizing his duty to his employe and to the publiq
may be given up as' a useless task.      c
The worker himself must be wakened to a realization of his right to an equitable share of the
prosperity his work makes possible; must be made
to realize that a fair wage includes a margin for
possible sickness, accident or unemployment.—U.

Last week the, mine here worked
full time, and this week so far, ibut as
the number of men at presept required Ib very much less than was formerly employed several miners, including
many old hands, had to be turned
down and are still hanging around the
camp. ..'Amongst the hunch of former
employees which the management
found it' impossible to place, is Billy
•Munroe, who came here from Bellevue
in the early part of last week. From
what we can learn Billy has had a lot
of very hard luck recently and we hope
the. coming year .will have' brighter
prospects in store for. him than the
present year dealt out to him.   '
Charlie .Heath, wno removed from

E. W. Ballantyne, .three months0 ago,
has gone .back to the first-named restaurant. . During his stay at the board-
Ing house Mr. Heath improved the appearance of his new home very materially. However, in the meantime the
proprietors of the Royal also got busy
and jnade some very much needed alterations" to that institution. Former-

v,hirh -was originally intended for a
hay loft,'with an out-of-date staircase
erected on the outside. At present the
entrance is from the dining rooms, and

house is empty, and seeing that one
tenant is credited with clearing a few
thousand dollars In the course of a
few years in it, an enterprising couple
should be able to make it go' alright
when trade brightens up here.
Owing to the mine being idle so
long, it was at firskconsldered Impossible to raise sufficient funds to purchase toys and otherwise decorate a
Christmas tree for \he kiddles. However a fortnight ago the Local officials
in getting Harry "Drew: to undertake
the collecting,operations, arid this important act was no doubt played with
a vengeance, seeing that $114.00 was
raised ln less than two weeks. , Mr.
Tom Moody, who acted as secretary

Stonhouso and Mrs. T3d. Plckard were
appointed to choose tho presents and

♦ Unfortunately, there ls quite a chapter of accidents' to record at the mines
for the last week,'' On Thursday of
last week, at quitting time, in No. 6,
Andrew Finnie,. an elderly Scotchman, .whilst on his, way to the pit bottom, was in the act of •crossing at the
junction where the cars are collected
for the grippers to go the regular man
way,.when• the cars started off; It
seems, for safety he, threw himself on
a low car, but when coming near .the
grip going down an,incline, the latter
observed that the"loaded cars were
standing half way up the hijl. . He
jumped, and called on' Finnie to do
likewise, -but.'.being, In. an awkward
position was unable to do so and the
result was that when the cars bumped
Into the stationary cars ho was throwa
between them and his'leg broken below the knee. There was a number of
first aid men at hand, and he was at
once attended to, pending the arrival
of the dootor, when he was taken to
Gait hospital, where he is progressing
as favorablyas can be expected.
At No. 3 mine, on Monday, George

serious accident to liis foot. Whilst In

falling on his foot cut it nearly In two.
Ho was conveyed at once to tho top,

' The Observer would be .pleased to
hear from anyone through the columns
of the District'Ledger whether it is
legal "for an-'agent representing a liquor" store-; fo solicit his fire brand

A number qf_ persons have approached

they claim if a' person is desirous of
participating In' a little refreshment
they can obtain this from the licensed
Institutions of Alberta, and if they feel
inclined, to'walk ten or twenty miles
to" quench their thirst they are at perfect'liberty to do so.
