Watch For The Date of Hard Times Ball
Fernie Sends Its
Second Contingent
Fully four hundred "uien were *pre-
aont at the Victoria Hall on Saturday
night on the. occasion of a farewell
smoker to the second contingent of
Volunteers from Fernie. And, these
men represented every shade of political and religious belief, while nation-
aities -were Just as varied. For once
every one forget what he -was or what
ho ought to be; 'he only remembered
that the boys who had volunteered, to
fight were deserving of an ovation for
the honest)'i of their convictions. The
-spirit of good feOllng and good fellowship -was abroad, and while it must be
admitted that many -may have been attracted by the prospects of a free entertainment 'and refreshments, there
wae from the very start an air of
freedom, tout at the same time sincerity. .Those present seemed to realize
the -poeition and sacrifice of the volunteers; they did* not want any reminders In the shape of speeches;
although the speeches that were delivered wore the sincere utterances of
men who -bolieved, right ot wrong, that

remark o'f Prince .Bismarck, who on
being asked what he 'Would do If the
British army ever invaded Germany,
remarked that lie would request the
policemen on the streets to arrest
them. "It is taking quite a faw policemen to arre|t them at present on the
Aisne -and the Yipres," said the speaker, while he had no doubt that the German soldiers in the trenches in Belgium iwere thinking—as those there
that night had been singing—It was
still a long way to Dunkirk and. Calais.
They had encountered reverses, but
with every reverse the British, determination seemed to grow stronger;
and the reason for this was that the
British were on the right side of the
controversy. He hoped that all those
who went from Fernie would acquit
uheni'selves as -men, remembering the
obligation they had undertaken, and
he promised them that, if -spared to
return, be would do his part by seeing
that they were re-placed in their old
positions. He then told the contingent that -he wished to give them some
momento to remind thein of their
home town, and the gift—a pipe and
tobacco—which he with -his wife was
asking them to accept, was given with
their beet wishes for a safe return. *
.The .pipes were then distributed to
the contingent.

For not only docs it show tliat the

At the Drill Hall on Friday evening
the members of Fernie's second contingent were -presented with socks,
mitts, sleeping helmets and badges by
the local branch of the Daughters of
the Empire. The Rebekahs also presented the 'boys with a neat little companion containing needles, thread, buttons, etc.
In connection witji the forming and
departure of the two contingents from
Fernie Lt.-,Col. J. Mackay, officer commanding In the Kootenays, has done
the military authorities a very appreciable service. This able officer has
made most of the arrangements, and
travelled extensively al! over the district during the mobilization of the
contingents. Here in Fernie, little
has Ibeen done towards entertaining
the men, beyond 'providing a smoking
concert. The expense of boarding men
who have arrived in town from outside points has fallen upon tiie colonel, and -while the city has met certain of these obligations (which, no
doubt, the government will assume as
soon as matters are straightened out)

Messrs. Archie Prentice, who was

The gathering was a success, and
much credit Is due to Paddy Hughes,
and his able staff of assistants, who
attended to the requirements ot the
gathering.
Those ln charge wish us to convey
their thanks to all who assisted In sny
way to the success of the gathering.
Tho services rendered toy the Fertile Coal Creek Band and Mr. Carrie's
Orchestra from the Isle were much
appreciated, and It is to be hoped that
next year when the Council is considering the granting of public .monies lt
will see that the band who "stays

In which he brings his aggregation «o

able hardship upon the officer who had
been compelled to pay out his own
'god money. This matter has been
discussed at gatherings of the Patriotic Fund and the City Council, and
from what we have heard, it certainly
appears far from fair that any one
mhn should be expected to finance,
for even a short time, so expensive an
undertaking as the mobllzatlon of
troops. We sincerely trust that the
military authorities will see that this
matter receives immediate attention,
while if they fall it will be the duty of
the city to seo that Lt-Cbl. Mackay ls
not -penalized with this expense, which
we understand** runs Into several hundred dollar*. It is aure nice to send
contingents away, but to a man like
tho oolonel, who has the esteem of
all, it must be most expensive.
Six Months For
Chicken Stealing
It is rarely that those bound upon
errands of mercy are compelled to
give evidence to secure the arrest of
the recipients of their charity. Such
however was the experience of some
members of the Coal Creek relief committee, lt appears that the relief
committee had received a request
from Dominic Langli and Chas. Dan-
nar for relief and one evening last
week, several members of the committee visited the house to distribute
groceries, etc. But, lo! and behold,
when the committee arrived at the
house, far f ropi a state of poverty they
had expected to encounter, their nasal
organs were assailed with the exceedingly pleasant and savory odour of
chicken. They timidly enquired whether they had .made a mistake, but
were assured .by the inmates that they
were in sore need of assistance. So,
■being instructed, and having the .word
of the inmates that they required relief, they deposited their burdens and
went their way. But. their was among
the multitude one who viewed with
wonder the fact that a family could
possibly be in want and. be eating chicken, especially as they had not been
known to be breeders of poultry. As
a result of certain misgivings, the
confidence of the local custodian of
law and order was sought, and he,
feeling a like curiosity, hied him to
that mysterious household. With a
pleasant nod and a cheery smile, the
"bobiby" enquired how tasted the chicken,
"'Me no cat chicken; us very poor,"
But still Joseph was curious, and the

for tiie occasion, when the fallowing
were present:    .-,

interment of a brother, the K. P,'s representatives were unable to be present
The preliminary business of the
meeting having been accomplished,
the meeting immediately settled down
to business. Mr. J. Quinney spoke
first and suggested that a hard times
dance would be one of the most appropriate methods of raising money. He
also suggested, that Entertainments
might be arranged from time to time
and the proceeds devoted to the fund.
Ti;t brother's suggestion found ready
supiport from among those present,
and a committee was appointed to
make arrangements.

This was the statement, of S. A.

Hartford. Valley strike zone, when told
by the Associated Press at McAlester,
Okla., of the decision of the secretary

their bonds fixed. Charles Robertson
was released on $1000 bond, Sandy
Robertson, John Monity and Clint
Burris failed to make $2000 bond and
were committed to jail.
President Cunningham expressed the
belief that "the action of the government was no doubt prompted by some
parties taking a prisoner from a federal deputy marshal rather than anything the members of the union had
bebn doing."

The Underworld of European
omacy and Scoundrelism

1SIEIEIE*^i!!&'&'^
In the following article the 'editor
of the Glasgow Forward discusses the
revelation's made .by Dr. Armgaard
Graves, a German spy, who, in his
book, "The Secrets of the German
Wa'.- Office," gives the world a glimpse of the international scoumdrellsm,
■which, in tiie flame of diplomacy, gambles wl:h the live asnd liberties of
millions of working people.
fiver;one in Scotland will remember the sensation caused by the arrest in lh'? year 1912, at the Central
Station Hotel, Glasgow, of a man,
calle,d Dr. Armgaard Karl Graves,
lie \\:i> K'Atl to be a German spy, and
the wildest rumors were afloat re-
sardine his machinations. At liis trial
at Kdin*burs;h, in .luly. 1912, little of
Importance wns divulged; but the
prisoner in cross-iiut'siioiijiij; Hear
Admiral Adair, the Ordnance Superintendent of Messrs. Ucard-more's, dis-
played a remarkable knowledge ofthe
technicalities of guns and gunnery,
aud from among his papers ithere were
produ-ed.a complete telegraphic code
relating to every vessel in the British
Navy, every British naval base, fortification and 'Strategic point. Thc
.prisoner was liable on conviction to
a period ot* seven years' hard labor;
.but just before sentence was pronounced an aristocratic-looking stranger was bowed impressively up to thej ai:d the madness
bench: a whispered conversation with
the judge, and then the sentence of
eighteen months' imprisonment, but
not with hard labor.
So mtu-li is common knowledge. It
is also common knowledge that Dr.
Graves was surreptitiously released
by the • British Government "and that
Mr. MeKIrihon Wood, the Secretary
Spotland,  on", ibeing badgered
for
on
the floor of the house of Commons,
on June 1, 1913, on the subject of
Dr. Graves' .mysterious release, took
shelter behind the royal prerogative,
refused all Information, aud witli the
■assistance of the Speaker of the Iio use
of Commons, got Mr, ■Joseph King,
M. P., the questioner, to hold his
tongue. But (jvili'at the public does not
Know i^w.Jiy Dr.'Craves', was released,
-aor-'Wiio lie. really was, nor same of
"tire remarKaoie tuings he has .neen
telling the . American people. The
public does not know—and if possible, the authorities will keep it from
neat European politicians, who .vere
present at a secret cowolave held* ."'
Sch-langebad, in the year 1911, and
attended by Wlnstone Churchill and
Lord' Haldane, as representing Urlt-
ain; frequently, as evidence of the
truth of his story, Dr. Graves gives the
exact date upon which a certain* incident occurred, aud the hotel in
which che visitors' book -hears tho
names of prominent persons who were
present and taking part in that incident; he Is profuse in his use of names
of living persons with whom lie has
come in contact during 'his secret service activities, If his story were untrue or exaggerated, there are a thousand and one ways in 'Which his inaccuracy tould be .proved; but the aver-
:mc man-and particularly the 'our-
n-ilist and the student of public affairs, who reads this book—will come
at ence to the conclusion that right,
from the firs: chapter, prefaced with
an account of the s/aiiiameiitary discussions over his.release (which, by
tiie way, I have verified from the
newspaper files) down to the rather
technical description of the German
war .machine, with its military' pre-
■para'tionS, its guns and its Zeppelins,
#Dr, Graves has opportunely lifted the
•Md from the horrible underworld of di
ploma-cy, and exposed for all the peoples of the earth to see, the methods
of the superfine
aristocrats playing feverishly and foi'
illusory stakes with the lives and the
liberties of the iv.orlclng class of Eu-
royc.
Armgaard Karl Graves is a bogus
name; his real na*me-s*iie withholds;
he tells us -on/ly that lie is of an aristocratic house; we gather,-too, that he
has been a spendthrift and.a gentleman ranker in the waste places of the
earth. During the Beor war he,
while sewing as a doctor with the
Britisli .forces, came across .Major von
Heltzenstein, cap tured from the Boer
Foreign Legion; .became .friendly with
him?, aud was offered a post-in, the
secret service of Germany; finally he
came under the .personal 'notice, of
Lord Kitchener, and''was given^twenty-four hours to clear out. • \
From that time until the.'".date of
"his arr-St in "Glasgow,■■■ undertaking
miss-tons to 'Port Arthur (wihioh place
he left just one week before the Japanese attacked it), Constantinople, the
knowing—that the mail, the-foreign! Balkans, and England; ive also played
spy, known as Dr. Graves/'had given important parts.in -tlie Agadir incident
the completed manuscript of liis work, ,-,< * here * he acted as tlu1 Kaiser's per-
"■The Secrets of the German War Of- sonal agent for tlio prevention of
flee." to his publishers, McBride, Xastj »ar;, and in Innumerable other sub-
.plaisairce' of Sir Edward Grey, iwa.s
working to securfe the complete diplomatic and military isolation of Germany in Europe.
It 'beoamie known somehow .that a
secret conclave between representatives of Russia, France, and Britain
ivas to be held at .Monte Carlo, or at
some iplace on the Riviera, and. Dr.
Graves and the Countess Chechany (a
Hun gar Rin 'Princess) were commanded to discover What was taking place.
The rather sordid intrigue in which
Countess Chechauy involved the Russian delegate, Prince Kassimir Ga-
lltzhi. and how she secured his papers,
does not require relation; what is important is that on the 9th of November, .1910, Prince Galltzln of Russia.
M. Delcasse, of France, and an "unknown" from England, representing
Sir Edward Grey, held a secret -confabulation at the Hotel de Ijondres,
■.Monte Carlo, -that Galltzln's papers
were afterwards stolen, that these papers showed thit Russia, France and
Britain were .arranging an alliance
for the hemming in of Germany, that
the President of France was to .meet
'the Caar in his yacht, the Standard,
off Kronstdt, and that for his laslty
and stupidity in the losing of his papers the Prince GaHtzlu v-as, exiled lo
■a province in Siberia, by an infuriated
Car.
Th-c iMioroccan trouble, Franco
vert'tts Germany, threatened to bring
war at any moment, it was imperative for Germany that sho should
knew, and that at once, how deeply
l'.rilai:. was committed to l-Yance. Did
she (Britain) guarantee mil'tiry sup-
per: or only diplomatic support? The
German militarists van^ press, who
wee howling for war, did net dream
thai this question of the extent to
which the entente cordiaie ran, was
pirp^exing seriously the German For-
e:gn Office. The German War Olfire
ha il prepared instructions for the captain of the warship, Panither; he was
to go to AgaidJr, and-that meant war!
It was under these circumstances
that Dr. Graves was summoned secretly before the Kaiser;-* Graves-'was
to carry the war dispatches to the
Pfl,nfll*Hr.   wb'?ic:h  wn'R -lying' «ff  Rrtrco-
& Co., of New York, as early us June
1 of this year, and that this manuscript not only exposes many of the
dirty diplomatic trickeries of recent
years In Kurope, but that it forecasts
tho present 'European, trouble and
gives ii.-- some of th* 'missing links in
our chain of indictments against Sir
Edward Grey and Mr. Winston
Churchill, as large -shareholders itr the
•cause of'the current massacres of the
working folks In Europe.
There is great Internal evidence in
Dr. Graves book of the truth of his
narrative. Its construction is ama-
teur!sh~-long anecdotes break in on
tht* thread of Ills story—und it is obviously not the work of a skilled Jour-
nailer attempting n "fonsntlon"; photograph plates nre given of hia secret
swrv'.ce <Tt- lentlals, signed by Udo von
Wedt'l, the German Emperor's Privy
Councillor and chief confidant, and of
unother document ln von Wedol'i
iinridwrl'lng, giving a  lint of pro.nl-
tomuiean Intrigue*.
At tlio present time we are, naturally not-go greatly Interested in. the sior-
i les about the knavish Russian food
ant!' munition contractors who supplied Port Arthur with weevils instead of flour, and empty cases of a'n-
niuiiitiou Instead of full ones, nor
nbout the Russian fool officers with
their wine nnd their hnretns, nor
about, the hordM of Japanese si)l3S,
ivho ui'der -pretense of bcln*g voolle
laborers, worked nt the *Pont ■ Arthur
fort Mention* un'.ll they knew e*-ety-
th'iik tlmt wns to be known, nor about
how French influence was undermined
h' Constantinople. Of more Immediate moment It Is for us to, learn all
t'.i.it Dr. Cru'vos cuu tell us of Iho in-
tcrnatlowil manipulations which have
rcsult-nd in the present war,
It neeiTis to have been in the yew
HMO that the German Secret Service
first discovered that Rumsia and
Frjiuct', with   tho   'benevolent   coin-
wanted to learm. He now knew that
Britain wastpiedged to go to war in support of France, .should France Decame
involved in -war .with Germany.   -
Now, my friends,-tuere is no question of the invasion of Belgium, here.
How do those of you who are swallowing all this talk about .independence of small nations and "national
honor" and" otiher .similar pretexts for
our enitry into this war—how do you
square the Agadir incident -with Sir
Edward Grey's repeated declarations
that .Britain had no secret committal
understanding or treaty with franc*
against Germany?
'The  German   diplomats 'began  to
feel the clutah. on their throats.    But
the German Foreign Office made one
desperate attempt to split the com-
.binaitlou against it—an   attempt    to
split .Britain away from the .Franco-
Russian alliance, and to form a close
federation between -Britain, Germany
and Austria.   So far advanced and so
successful did  this attempt  become,
that on October  12,  1911,  Mr.  Winston Churchill and Lord Haldane, representing Brltajn; Herr von Klnder-
l&n Waeoliter, General Heeringen, and
Admiral   Tiinpitz,   representing   Germany, anil Von Auffeivberg, the Austrian Minister-of War, met secretly at
Ehrenkrug, one of the German  Emperor's shooting lodges in the Schlan-
geii'bad (Ulack Forest). Graves superintended the arrangements   at   bliat
meeting, nnd  n niton g   the  documents
he was ordered  to burn    after    the
meeting  were   doouments containing
numerous statisU-es   on   Holland and
Belgium, nnd he says lie still .possesses plans tentatively agreed upon at
this conference for a freezing -out and
isolation of France, the Incorporation
of Belgium and Holland in the German Federation (thus giving Germany
a  great .port  like  Antwerp),   British
control of French North African and
Dutch  East Indian  possessions, and
Austrian outlets in the Mediterranean.
So 'far ns Br. Graves   knows,   this
agreement was  never officially  concluded' by Uie heads of the governments represented at the conference;
but unless Dr   Graves Is an   heroic
and stupid'liar '(arid,-, as, I haw  al
ready said, tbpre i.s intrinsic evidence
of-tlie reliability of his statements),
this conference at the Schl-angenhad
was held, this Thieves'   Kitchen  de;
iiberately sat down to plan a recasting of the map 'of Europe without considering inany way tlie wishes of the
people concerned, and without caring
a 'twopenny curse for Belgium or any
other agreement.    And Churchill and
Haldane should   be   invited' in   the

tona in Spain; but the Kaiser gave
lilm also certain verbal "instructions,
which were to override the >vrltten instructions for war. The verbal mess-age to the captain of .'the'* Panther
(which the captain had to repeat back
to Count von Wedel in Berlin before
he sailed) was:
"On no account, it does not matter
what official commands you have received or may receive, are you to use

Agadir, Xo matter what" stress Is,

Graves wis 'sent into the .Balkans to

Kvery one knows what happened.
The Panther went to Agadir for a

a British .warship arrived and sent

cf the 'accused statesmen, their me-
iibod'S, or their rulers, It would 'be Interesting to know hy what process of
reasoning the Kditor of the Glasgow
Forward arrives at the conclusion that
a man like the adventurous Dr Graves,
after leading a life of Intrigue and lies,
suddenly becomes tho virtuoiiB discloser of the iniquities of secret diplomacy? Let the reader swallow a certain portion of Or. Graves, while the
book Itself'should prove good fictional
raiding, but let him sto,p at a certain
portion, No man who has lived the
life that Graves has lived could possibly be expected to give-an unbiased
awoiint of his work, for the simple
reason that a little "coloring" is necessary to secure a ready sale. In
our mind we have not fhe slightest
doubt that Dr, Graves worked for the
diplomats of Germany, nnd proved untrustworthy; so 'he was dismissed—
how, we do not know. He was also
rmployi'il by Hiitaln, but again, he
was net to be minted nt his own
g.iuie; and at latt wc have him in this
country, « country whore sensational-
liun of the kind he provides finds a

If you were told of a new
discovery for the treatment of
coughs, colds and bronchitis,
as certain in its action on all
chest troubles as anti-toxin is
on diphtheria, or vaccination on
small-pox, wouldn't you.feel
like giving it a trial ? Especially
if you could try it for fifty cents!
Peps is the discovery!
Peps are littls tablets, neatly wrap*
ped in sir and germ-proof silver foi}.
Ihey contain certain medicinal ingredients, which, whten placed upou the
tongue, immediately turn into vapour,
ana ara st onoe breathed down tha sir
passages to the lungi. On their journey,
they soothe the inflamed and irritated
membranes of the bropohial tubes, the
delicate walls of the air passages, and
finally enter and carry relief and healing
to the capillaries and tiny air sacs in the
lungs.
In a word, while no liquid o?solid
oan gek to the liiugs and air passages,
these Peps fumes get there direot, and
at ones eommenoe their work of healing.
Peps are entirely distinct from the
old fashioned liquid cough cures, which
are mereljr swallowed into the etomaoh,
and never'reach the lungs. Peps treat*
menl of ooughs and colds is direct treat-
nent*_
If you hare not yet tried Peps, ont
out this article, write across it
the name and date of this paper,
snd mail it (with lo. stamp to
pay return postage) to Peps Co.,
Toronto.   A free trial paoket
will  then   be ' sent   you.

During my stay ln Kurope I -attend.;
cd tihe French National Socialist Congress in- Paris; I heard the speeches
of Vail'lan-t, Paoli, Rappaport, Sem-
bat, tlues-de, J. Jaures and others on
fche question of militarism and of the
resolution to be presented, to the International Congress at Vienna recom-
mending a general strike in -case of.
•war or -of u threiat of -vVar. The attendance of the delegates was a large
one, the deliberations were very serious and dignified; great enthusiasm
prevailed. At that time the sky seemed to be clear and every one prepared
himself for the Vienna congress. The
spirit of the meeting was one of international 'brotherhood and even the
most revolutionary members of the
congress .paM particular consideration
ami ..made allowances in favor of those
measures, whioh could be adopted and
carried out by the German 'Social
Democracy. Inflamed by the masterly speech of the great J. Jaures,
the congress unanimously adopted the
modified resolution.
I ihitve witnessed the mobilization ln
Switzerland, the military exercises in
The Hague, the mobilization in London. I have seen the life ot the Germans in Stuttgart, Ilerlin, etc. The
great parade of th'e Swiss array'at Its
departure from Heme showed hoiw
resolutely they were ready to go to
defend t.heir neutrality, but how unhappy they were about it and how
little interest tliey took in war. The
Swiss .people did their utmost to alleviate the sufferings:! of the many
thousands of Italians and other foreigners who came to them from tho
ifilMssMie-jii-jCQunUJo-s.—■■—The—Itallans-
we-re the irfost pitiable ones, with
chelr poor bundles and belongings
waiting for hours and for days at the
railway stations, as no passenger
■trains were running. .Many Swiss
women were standing ^nd dispensing
foodstuffs to them, But still how they
suffered, until they were boxed ln the
overfilled slow trains to bc gradually
transported to their destination in
Italy.
The fate of the Russian refugees
In Switzerland was not much better.
The good people In Bernb transformed
the largest school of the city 'Into a
boarding-house for the Russians who
came thero pennllpss or unable to
cash the Russian checks.        x A
I-hnvo seen the'suffering   of "the
Swiss peoplo In many cities;   almost
all the men parting oh the streets
from their wives and children to go
to tli© frontier to maintain their neutralist)' and to--protect their Independence, their free land awl Institute ns;
In the smaller places women and children only remained and they did all
the work iu the fields and at home.
In the placeB .which were usually filled
with American and. European tourists,
evcrythlnr looked dead,   tho   hotels
empty, tho guests all gone.   Bwltser-
l»nd host most of tho season of the
tourists and the armed neutrality cost
It about three million francs a day.
Communication   was   greatly   interrupted and very Irregular   all   over
Switzerland. In Bchnffhausen, a beau-
11 .ful place,  full  of  ancient  artistic
tmlMtnr* and mnni.im.ni.ls, the iwvpl-f
were ready nnd preparing, In case of
threatening (Invasion, to eva-custe the
city, to destroy ths bridges and to retire inland behind the waterfalls. Also
In Basel wnd on other frontiers ths
population wss trembling, fesrlnt in*
vaslon snd ths compulsory necessity
of flighting against modern randstiem.

The Socialist women of Berlin were

the rich, Amoing the most prominent
and ha-rdesit workers I slaw were Mrs.
Eduard Be-naetedn, -Mrs. Dr. J. Zadek,
i.Mrs. A. Hoppi; etc.
I have seen .the prisoners of war
brought to Germany, the downtrodden Frenohimen in the trains for
horses, "40 horses" printed on each
car—how .many men were placed inside, I could not count. I have seen
a. wounded, German soldier, coming
to the waiting room, triumphantly
'holding in his unwounded arm his
gun aud on top of it the red oap of
the Frenchman he had killed. I have
seem ithe preparations of the Red
Cross doctors and nurses waiting for
the arrival of tlie train of wounded
or of the iJa'ssing German soldiers^to
give them medical aid and food (coffee, milk and eatables).
In London, life was In full sway,
but the streets wore,filled daily with
long .marching lines of new volunteers of all classes, greatly delaying
traffic and communlcaton facilities, ,
, After these fenv remarks about my
traveling impressions, let me return
to the 'main subject. When I came to
Switzerland, I became aware of the
■pleasant news that the German Social Democratic members of the
Reichstag had voted for the military
budget and made common cause with
the rulers, for war. -The comrades in
Switzerland were as dumbfounded as I
was. "Why did they do lt? How could
they do suoh a thing? we all asked.
Xationrath, Cm., members of the
Swiss Parliament, formerly a working
man, now, since years, the editor of
the very popular   Social'   Democratic
paper Jn X , a vepy able,  energetic
■^nd exceptionally talented man and
an ardent, Marxian scholar, a man
with clear brains, endless goodness
and of high standing in the community, was overcome with grief and consternation. "They destroyed Internationalism .by their action. How will
tliey meet the foreign comrades?"
Uow will they face the  •.vorkiagmen
killed In rhe war, 400 will be Social
Democrats." x*"-    ,
Our muUinl friend and tierman
Comrade, Gch.—a young witty man,
linguist, talented writer, good speaker
—tvho lived with his splendid ("ler-
tran wife for years in Paris, working
together as correspondent for las Social Democratic' press of Germany
(forty to fifty papers)—was not less
horrified. Still more so, coming from
his agitation tour, he was sure that
the German Socialise workiiignieu
were against war and that the .party
In France was against it. "I am at n
loss to understand this tntiisformit-
tion," said he. Another Comrade met
me with the expression, "Marxism iH
bankrupt; back to I.assalle, to nation-
allsm,"
"Any one I met, Swiss, German or
Russian, was full of dissatisfaction
and.lndlBna.tlon. I was told that
German workingmen in Switzerland
and In Alt-ace-Lorralne, who had to
leave to enter military service In Ger-.
many; plainly declared that they
would never have Rone, but as members of the party they had to submit
to the decision and dictum of the
party representatives!
Outside of Germany I hardly met
any Socialist who was not fully disappointed at the action of the German
comrades. I heard the veteran gray
communist, Valllunt, at the French
Socialist Congress in July.repeat again
and again, "La greve generale. la
grove generale (the general strike),
beittt insurrection than war!" And
Jules Guesde shouted: "Jamais, jamais. Jamnls de la -vie fnever, never !n
life), tho Germans will never start n
general strike." J. Jsures, by his
splendid addr-Ms, -carried tho house
snd tho modified resolution was unsni
mously adopted. Hut Jaures is no
mora. If Jsures and Rebel «wers alive,
Ws would not have any reason to complain. These master minds would
hsve unMed, not disunited tibo International And as much ss I wss st

cratic party iwas a great one and did
an immense amount of good for the
workirugmuan, for* Socialism and In-
tern-ationalism. If I, at times, disliked some action of the .party, if it
was not revolutionary (except .in hairsplitting theorems*), if lit was too optimistic, etc., I was reconciled by its
constant propaganda and agitation
against militarism aud for peace and
International solidarity of the workers of the world. I had the unbounded faith that the .party would have
•the 'backbone to keep the balance of
power against war at least in case of
approaching danger. Why did they
not do it? It is a riddle. Was it because they ha.d been hy.pno-iizeid and
intoxicated by tlve povemiment's
"White Paper," telling them that it
was a iwar against Russia, a war of
defense against despotism, of self-
preservation as a natiou? Was it because tiliey .wel'e under martial law
and many feared to be shot? (This
was decidedly denied to me; none of
them were afraid for their lives.)
Was it .because tliey reaJly thought
that the people wanted war and that
they had. to act in accordance with
the will of the people? Was it be
cause it would not make any particle
of differen-ce how they voted, as they
were still the minority of the representatives? ' Was it because tliey
considered themselves grejat statesmen and wanted to outdo Beth-
man-illollweg and the rulers?
Was it because they esteemed their organization so 'high and a .negative vote
or a*bstaining from voting might have
caused -the dissolution of the organization by tOie government? .How did
the Socialists in France, in Paris, wail
for the dictum of the German Social
Democracy! If the older brother, the
mighty ibig brother, will not guarantee
the budget, ithey (the French brethren) would do likewise and still more.
They waited—hut in vain. Haase, the
President, delivered (against .his own
views) the great patriotic speech, full
of hig-h-sounddns .phrases and handed
to Wilhelm and his clique the great
Social Democracy! The members'of
the second Duma In dark Russia went
to Siberia rather than to give In to the
wishes of the Russian government.

indefatigable fig*htert E. Haeckel?
Htow about the great energetic man,
W. Osowald?. How about the venerable physiologist and psychologist, W.
Wundt? Whom tihe gods wish to
punisih they strike with blindness.
But in spite of this great error ami
its .pathological sequels, I dare say, I
hope-that the International 'movement

is such a .bibical orthodox 'Marxian to
claim .that it was the capitalist class
alone, which caused rhis war? .True
enough, the greatest, worst enemy of
International Socialism is capitalism:
imperialism, militarism and wars are
only -the bodyguards of -capitalism, ob-
struating the way to reach this ,main
enemy. (But do not 'belittle the other
elementary forces, aye, the personal
element. These are the despotic and
semi-despotic .monarchies, which are
che hardest fighters and defenders of
and are personally interested in war
and expansion. The old socialistic
dogma, that it is all Lhe same for tiie
workingman to live In a republic or In
l monarchy, has heen proven to be
an absurdity, a self-deceit, a historical
untruth. A republic is much better
than a monarchy. If Germany, Russia and Austria were republics, there
would have been no war today. There
destruction of these monarchies! is the
would ite no modern' militarism; The
destruction of these monarchies is the
first step, the most important step, the
Condition sine qua non toward the elimination of militarism and war and
the abolition of capitalism. As long
as the nixmarchial states exist, and
monarchies often    breed    megaloma
niacs, ohere is no use talking of the
emancipation, of the workingman, no
social revolution, no Co-operative

phus labor will have to start anew!
The prime duty of the American
Socialists is to concentrate their

the old Romans were a .military-imperialistic state, and we are living in an
industrial-capitalistic state. A great
standing army and navy for the United States "for protection only," will eo

usefulness and enlightenment.' It has
to do away with bureaucratism in local and district, with petty jealousies,

lias never been raised in favor of compulsory arbitration in labor dispute's.
In fact, labor has always held that
when fompuislon walks in. arbitration
vanishes and Involuntary servitude
dominates. Xor was It orgaaized labor that coined the phrasse, "The public b<* d d."    That was thc .product
of those who desire to be masiers,
and whether they realtee It or not,
every advocate of compulsory arbitration is aiding In the struggle to enslave Uio worker—tb make him subject to the whim and fancy of some
one not vitally concerned ln the conditions under which we must live.
The compulsory arbitration advocates are gulliy of that old, old error
of placing property above humanity.
They assume that the continuous uninterrupted .production of goods and
furnishing of conveniences are matters of more concern lo man than ls
tho Independence of tho worker. They
nr« ho absorbed with material ihlng*
thnt thoy pass lightly over the feollngs
of thoso who would be compelled to labor, to spend their strength and energy
and very Uvea In labor under compulsory conditions, In the estalilisment
of which they would hsve no voice except n groveling, .pleading prayer for
mercy or Justice at the hands of
others.
One of the arguments of the llee is
that "ttrlklng employe* have not Uih
status of men who have asked for anil
obtained a discharge. Their position
Is that of men who aim to resume,
upuu their own terms, the employment
they have temporarily severed to emphasise their demands. Accordingly,
the prohibition of Involuntary servitude does not and Hhould not applv In
such cases."
Just think of It.    Thin paper would
hsve a worker "ask for and obtain n
discharge" In times of disagreement
over wages or working conditions'or!

Pamierston, Ont., Junk aoth. 1913.
"I really believe that I owe my life
to "Fruit-a-tives". Ever since childhood, I have been under the care of
physicians aad have been paying
doctor's bills. I was so sick and worn
out that people on the street often
asked me if I thought I could get
along without help. The same old
Stomach Trouble and distressing
Headaches nearly drove me wild.
Sometime ago, I got a box of "Fruit-
a-tives" and the first box did me good.
My husband was delighted and advised a continuation of their use.
Today, I am feeling fine, and a
physician meeting me on the street,
noticed my improved appearance anU
asked the reason. I replied, "I am
taking Fruit-a-tives". He said, "Well,
if Fruit-a-tives are making you look so
well, go ahead and take them. They
are doing more for you than I can".

AND THEY 110 STRONG!
At llu- outbreak ot* the war lliu very first <|iu's-
tion that every elass conscious worker asked,* nml
not a few wlio were not so conscious., ''What are
Social "Democrats doing; what have they done?
.And let it be said, to the credit of the average So-
i mlisi's chivalry and courtesy, and also his implicit
faith in lhe courage and .steadfastness of his teacher.-,, lie refrained from accusations and recrimination. ■■Time will prove; let us wait patiently!"
this was the advice and slogan. True, several of
the big lights in the Socialist world did not hesitate
lo attack the German Socialists, and Benson and
Walling English were almost bitter in their denunciation of the attitude of the German Socialists.
Most of us. however, were disposed to treat them
charitably; and even in this paper we published letters and articles in which the comrades expressed
the belief that wholesale executions and shootings
had taken place. Karl Liebknecht was shot, several
-siiiics. wiimc Kcsi livixemberg had been inaltreakd
and thrown into jail. Revolt, it Was reported,
had lieen crushed under the iron heel of Kaiserism.
We have mourned for their imagined sufferings; we
'.ave longed lo hear the brave words from them ihat
should to!! how heroically, as in 1870. they refusal
to countenance war. and in spite.'of the threats of
Kaiser Bill, walked out of a Reichstag reeking-'with
insane miiilarism! We have waited, and we liave
learned.
From barbaric Russia we-'expected nothing, but
here we met our surprise,, for tlie members of Trudo-
viki i Laboriics) left the. Duma in a body. Poor,
backward, ignorant Russians, with Siberia staring
them in llu- face, dared the wrath of the Czar when
nur masters refused to incur the anger   of   their
the position of German Social Democrats ancl the
Kaiser Amen!
The comrades 110 strong in Germany have had
their trial; it has 'been unbiased and international;
and they have been found wanting—they have lost
their opportunity. The world waited, listened for
some word of protest, some vision of revolt; we
were to eager to hear how they had acquit themselves—and we know.
"Never before in history has there been such a
dastardly betrayal of principle as the unanimous
•voie of the Socialists for the Kaiser's AVar Budge4,
I ike ostriches sticking their heads in the sand so
as not to see, they were blind to the invasion of Luxemburg, Belgium and France; and as though hypnotized by the Kaiser aud his pitiful, shameless
Chancellor, they had eyes only for that ogre the
Czar, whose worst sins against Russian freedom
could never have been committed without the support of the K'aiser—a support encouraged again and
again by the pusillanimity of the German Socialists.
1 can only pardon them by believing they knew not
what they did. They had no realization of their responsibility. To this day 1 have met iio-apologist
of the Kaiser who has not said triumphantly: 'lie
Ml'ST be right, because the German Socialists are
supporting him!' "—(See "The War: Personal.Impressions;" by Robert Rives La Monte, in this issue.)
The best conclusion we can give this article is by
quoting-Allan Benson, who wrote as follows in the
.New York ("all. early iii September, under the caption "Let the War Go On": ■'■•:'. . "-.
•'I am sorry to hear that the Socialists of New
York intend to hold an anti-war meeting in Union
Square Saturday afternoon. I am sorry to hear it
because I always like to feel that the Socialists are
maintaining and increasing their ''reputation i'<r
common'Sense." 1 hate war, but 1 do not hatetit so
much as J hate some kinds of peace. J regretted to
s^e this -war come on, but now that it has come. 1
want to see it go on until its cause shall Jiave beea
wiped out of existence.
' "'What is its cause?...Comrades may say that capitalism was ils cause. Quite so. But that is not*
sufficiently definite. It is no more nearly definite
than it would be to say that the atmosphere is the
cause of the aeroplane. -Without ■ the atmosphere
the aeroplane'would not have existed. Without
capitalism the present European war would not
have existed. The present European war is the result of capitalism, plus the predatory and military
spirit of Germany as typified by its Emperor.
'"Germany won   an   easy   victory from Prance
fiirty-four.years ago.     From that .day to tliis she
lias been drunk with confidence and ambition.
''Why not stop the war then?.-    We may omit
rescue of the Allies by shutting off the supply to the
enemy. One' might ask a question that would
seem natural: Did not these statesmen know for
what the nickel was intended years ago ? If tljey
did, why did'they not put "an embargo on nickel
sooner? The answer is simple: It would have interfered with Profits, and to have refused to ship
for the German or Austrian trade would have been
contrary to all canons of commerce. , They were
not in business for their health. With British men-
of-war patrolling'the'high seas.and overhauling neutral bottoms to ascertain if contrabrand was among
the cargo it is an open question if a large quantity
intended for Germany and Austria could have been
successfully delivered. A case of making'■' a virtue
of a necessity." If German militarism is bad so is
is any kind of militarism, regardless of the prefix,
and if nickel is so essential that without it wars
today could not be carried on, is it not more sensible to forbid its sale for war tools than to dispose
bf large quantities and then at the eleventh hour
put an injunction against it?
Nothing of the. kind will be done, and to talk about
doing it is Utopian, so long as the bulk of humanity
still think tho only way to put an end to war is by
killing oach other.'

weeks, an dthat 1 have not yet recovered from the ipervasive sense of sadness
which permeated and saturated the in-

Tours as soon as the inevltaibllty ot

iny emotional sympathies are very

The best things on the war 1 ever-
read are the article by Bohn and Wall-
i'ng (not forgetting the excerpts from
Allan Benson) in the September and
October "Nc^v Reviews." Next to
these and very, very close after them
comes an article in the October Atlantic Monthly by Prof. Usher, of St.
Louis, which I heartily recommend to
"Xew Review" readers.
•The economic causes of the war—
Germany's need for expansion, her
rapid industrial development and consequent remarkable overproduction,
the door to South America slammed in
her -face by the U. S. A. with her be-
whlskcred .Monroe Doctrine, the door
to AUrlca slummed in her face by Kngland, and the door,to Asia 'Minor ominously creaking on its hinges from
the pushes of the Balkan Slavs more
or less openly'..supported by. Russia-
all this, has been made plain and clear
by many Socialist writers and it makes
(Germany's .attitude explicable and
comprehensible.   But the comprehen-
eonsideratiois of the fact that it would be 'precisely'
as nearly possible to try to slop an eruption of a volcano after it had begun to spout. We should not.
try to stop the war because the spirit that has -caused this war is a menace to civilization. Civilization
will not be safe until that spirit is crushed. If it
were not crushed now, it would cause another Avar.
I'ntil the war came the world would be compelled to
arm against it. No nation would be safe over night.
The suddenness with which Germany precipitated

An interesting gathering was held
Priday. evening at the Club Hall, when
a dance was arranged as a fareiwell to
Dick Jones, Harry Cartmell and Robinson Welsh, who have gone out with
the second contingent. Harry* France
conducted the floor arrangements in
his own inimitable style. The orchestra was composed of the following gentlemen: J. -Fawley, H. Hewitt and .1.
Gaskell. During the evening several
songs were sung and speeches .made.
Dancing was indulged in until the wee
smi' hours.
Charlie Percy came home from hospital on Monday, -where he 'has .been
undergoing an operation.
Howard 'Martin tvas discharged from
hospital during tlie week-end.
The special train provided by the
management of the Grand Theatre

times stumble across a prodigy, and
our latest discovery is a comedian by
the name of Hill Collier, whose rendition of a -certain song brought down
the roof.

Mr Ed. LHherland wishes, in r-'trn,

' The people of Bellevue are again
called upon to help t/hose who, find
themselves In adverse circumstances,
and we feel sure the appeal won't be
In vain, in spite of the fact that so
much distress prevails in this District.
There will be a grand concert -held iu
th$ Worker's Hall on November 11th,
in aid of the .Patriotic Fund. We
thoroughly appreciate the condition ot
the workers here, but compared with
that of the Belgian people It is a veritable paradise. There the people are
homeless and starving; little children,
aged and infirm all suffer. Driven
from town to town, hamlet to hamlet,
first hy the Invaders, and then in
search of food, these poor -people are
almost demented. It would take the
pen of the greatest writer te do justice
to their condition, and then he could
scarce succeed. We trust the people
of Bellevue, who while they .have been
called upon to make sacrifices, have
not witnessed the destruction of their
homes, their breadwinners, aye, their
women and children, will help these
unfortunate people who in their present condition ara powerless to help
themselves, it is anticipated tha-*. this
conc-eu willl"surpass anything eve'r

Jack Leonard is not making the
progress we would like to see in recovering from Ms attack of rheumatism.
It has come to our knowledge that
a series of petty thefts are taking place
from the washhouse at No. 2 mine,
Some person or persons seem to be in
great need, of towels and boots, and
have .possessed themselves of means
to unlock the lockers and help themselves. Such thefts are the very
depth cf meanness, and inflict gireat
hardship and .inconvenience upon the
victims. • Every effort will be made
to catch the culprit or culprits.
Mr. A.. Watson, of Bradley and Watson Coal Co., of Pincher Creek, was
In town this week, and informs us that
The.business men of Coalhurst sent
ouit Invitations to all the farmers in
the vicinity to come in on Tuesday,
November 3rd, and enjoy themselves.
About a hundred farmers answered the
call and a supper, show and dance, all
free to the farmers, was well managed
by the business men. The idea, we
believe, is to get the farmers to make
Coalhurst their markdt place. J. T.
Percival acted as secretary, and we
believe the undertaking was a huge
success.
A very sad affair which proved total
happened at Coalhurst Thursday of
last week. George Smith, a Russian
miner, employed for the past year and
a half at -tlie collieries here, went out
with a gun to hunt jack rabbits, and

they have struck coal, also that it is j some how or the other the gun* ex
coal of good quality. The seam is
almost vertical, pitching about 85 degrees, and with a sandstone foot-wall.
We are also informed that they have
a good market for their coal. We
wonder if they have room for a little
of the labor power that is being hawked around these parts?
A meeting was held on Tuesday
evening in the vacant store next to A.
I. Blais for the purpose of completing
arrangements for the receiving of
donations of money and clothing in
aid of the sufferers through the present war.
Mr, Williams was elected chairman
and Mr. A. Kelly secretary treasurer.
A executive board comprised of the
following was elected: *Mrs Williams,
Mrs. lSvans, Mrs. Hallworth and Mr.
Burnett, and the two officers, with
power to elect any 'help they might
need.
The people of this locality will be
greatly assisting the committee if
they wI-U have ready for them all serviceable clothing tliat may be of use
for-the Belgian women and children.
At a rate payers' meeting held he-e
Eome weeks ago a committee of thr^e
gentlemen were selected to attend to
the necessary details of having this
town Incorporated. As the citizens'!
are enquiring as to what progress has
been made, possibly the three gentle-

died before medical aid could be obtained. A. E. Humphries, coroner,
was communicated with, and with Dr.
Rose, of Coalhurst, went to the scene
amd inspected the remains. Their
conclusions showed that an inquest
was not necessary. The deceased
leaves a wife and four small children
in Coalhurst to mourn their loss, also
a -brother, Peter Smith, and a brother-
in-law, Charles Kasim, both residing
here and working in the mines. The
local union, of which deceased was a
'member, took charge of the funeral arrangements and attended the funeral
in a body Saturday. Interment took
place at the Catholic Cemetery, Lethbridge. The Local Union have made
arrangements to cover this expense by
a .dollar levy on the members-hip, the
balance to be forwarded to the widow
and children to assist them through
the coming winter.

Though loyal and patriotic in tae

times forced to express our own position to the world at large in order to

towards the unemployed in this section of t/he country.- Through adverse

It is rumored tliat work will be very

mine workers of Burmis and Maple

and the workers at Passburg, these
mine workers have suffered and endured great hardships during this year,
and unfortunately the worst is yet to
-come unless, we are given* a little
charity from some source or other.
We have, already appealed to the Provincial Government to come forward
and relieve-the. distress which Is prevalent amongst the mine workers at
the ipresent time.
I believe, that ls If we were in a
position to say, "Die, Von Kluck," we

a pair or two of socks so that we
eould advance after Von Kluck, or

a blame shame that those who are
In authority are Ignorant of the existing conditions of the mine worker*
In this province. Fight boys! fight!

Charlie got the verdict.
The -manly art is becoming the rage
at Beaver lately. On Satu-rday might
while the free dance, which followed
the picture show at the Lyric Hail
was' in progress, Elmer Hutff, and
Ralph Vroom quarrelled, the question
at issue being which was entitled to
dance with one of the young ladies
present. Eventually they agreed to go
outside and settle the point in real
jungle fashion. As they did not agree
uipon an umpire. Constable Byrne, of
the R.X.W.M.P., offered his services,
and gathered them In. The following ..Monday tliey were each eased of
$-Jj)0 and costs. Elmer, who claims
that he could have won out in a fight
to a finish, has been nursing a badly
bitten thumb since. According to the
sporting critics, neither gave much
promise of 'becoming a white hope.
The garrison at Beaver 'has been
doubled during the past .week and we
have two constables instead of one.

Speaking of whale stories there is
another version of Jonah and the fish
that is not always recorded at Sunday
school, and it is to the effect that after
the whale had s-wuljowed Jonuh he developed a great thirst, which thirst
no doubt was occasioned by the presence of Jonah, and so great was this
thirst that he drank Uie whole of the
ocean dry. As a result the poor fish
—robbed of his native eleaient- caught
a severe chill which developed into
pneumonia, and, during a fit of coughing and hiccuping, he hiccupud .lo:i{th
straight out. Of course neither versions are vouched for bv Biblical authorities, 'but it is just a case of "shallowing," that's all.    Next, John!

Before purchasing steamship
tickets, let us talk it over.
Sir Percy Scott is an admiral who
knows his business. At the age of 61
he knows most of the tilings' which
ban ibe learned from a lifelong contact
with naval affairs. He says *n the
English P'mes: "I can see no use for
battleships and ve>'y little chance for
fast cruisers. The navy will be entirely -changed. -Naval officers will no
longer live on fhe sea, but either above
or un-der it." Thus does he sum wp the
influence which the science and inventions of the past ten years have had
upon naval warfare. The Admiralty
authorities hasten to describe tthe
statement as "premature ami mischievous."
■That is what might be expected.
Recent revelations in the British
House of -Commons disclosed the fact
Hi at officials and ex-officials of the Admiralty, bjth in Parliament and out,
have a large financial Interest in the
armament firms, which build ships for
'the navy. It would be directly against
their .material .interest to have orders
for batleships cease, and the vast
amount of capital represented by hat-
tleshlp-iproducing machinery thrown
on the junk heap.
Of course It was "mischievous and
premature" for such a startling assertion to be made by one so .highly
placed, without warning being first
given quietly, so that these .patriots
eould have time to unload on the nation by advocating the nationalization
of their shipyards. However, that is
only a little .by-the-way comment on
the habits of these people. The main
.point is, that science is fast reducing
war to ridicule and sending its engines of destruction to the discard.
As long as the destroying medium
could only move on land and water, internal-! on si boundary lines, guarded
by fortifications of fabulous cost,
amounted to something. With the
coming of the aeroplane and its adaptation to warfare those lines of fortification become eventually useless.
Sea-coast defenses and heavily armored battleships, costing $1,000,000 each
suffer the same fate from the introduction and .perfection of submarine
boats, capable of blowing large battleships and the strongest -booms that
could .be stretched across a harbor
mouth into splinters without being
seen in the process. .With these new
developments the human equation in
warfare becomes less. The mimber.of
men needed is not so many. The
struggle is .between highly efficient
machines 'manipulated oy a tew ex-
Trote BRTwicrTfnsattternvcs-way
to brain.
Xow comes along a still greater invention which promises to finally an-
Inlhllaie the folly of'war despite the
; stupidity of men. Gullio Ullvl, an
U-.ilia.il engineer, by means or electric
waves projected after the 'fashion of
wireless   telegraphy,    has    exploded
mines -buried in the water ten miles
away. Powder was put in a guttapercha bag covered with fiber and
placed in a iporcelain box. This box
was placed In another box made of
asbestos and the whole sealed 'ia a
wrought iron shell and sunk In the
river Arno. The 'machine of Ulivi, De
hind the town of Fiesole, ten -miles
away, searched the river .bed and within thirty minutes exploded all four of
these m'-irce-s. An apparatus built on
t'he same ..principle and capable of
producing similar results -^ at eighty
oal'le-s range is being constructed by
the same inventor. When that Is accomplished, Wih-at will be the use \>t
either battleship, submarine, aeroplane
or fortress for -war purposes?
Thus does war make war on itself.
Every move towards perfection of method Jn war seems to be bringing the
day nearer when it will negate itself.
In this suicidal process it is being assisted by the growing internationalization of the world's financial Interests,
W'hiich always lie at the back of a great
war.
As long as capitalists only invested
in the country of their domicile, they
had not s much compunction about
■making war. Today not one of the
great commercial countries of tthe
world can go to war with another without destroying its capital investments
in the country upon wliich it makes assault. Britain, France and the United
States could not reduce .Mexico to subjection .by war without destroying their
own .property. As Norman Angell
poiftts out in "Tihe Great Illusion'," the
international character of modern capitalization throws the 'burden of the
loss on both aggressor and defender,
and by reason of that Is probably hastening the death of war much quicker
than the peace efforts of the -world's
minority of intelligent men ancl women.
There are .some working class political economists who say tliat in any
case it need not 'concern the workers,
because they only sell their labor power as a 'Commodity, whose value Sn ex-
cihange terms is expressed by wages.
And that, therefore, they do not pay
the taxes which go to pay for the munitions of war. .That may be true,
but it is the workers who have to pay
in lives and misery. And no movement which condemns war as an obstacle to the final consolidation of tthe

We now come to the necessity' for
the democratization of our diplomacy.
Without daylight diplomacy, -capitalists might inflame the .people with lies
and make them ■wl-afc to vote for war.
But -suppose the people were to top off
a little more of the capitalists' i>oli
tical power by democratizing dlpto
macy? The President of the United,
States now shapes and outlines
cur diplomatic course and our foreign
policies as he sees fit. v Some Pre
sldents have used these greafy powers
fairly and decently and some -have
abused them. No iPresldenit should
have such powers. They are too closely related to war.        I
Suppose the people were to say: "Mr
President, we will now excuse you
from further responsibility In -connection with our diplomacy, ' We are going to ask Congress to handle these
matters—'and to liandle them in the
dayllgth." x
Suppose we wore to place in the
hands of congress the handling of our
foreign affairs, which we could do, by
tlie way, without constitutional amendments. Suppose Congress were to
eject a joint, 'committee on foreign relations and also elect 'the committee's
chairman. Suppose the fcom.-uuttee'.s
chairman were to supersede the Secretary of State and to conduct the foreign affairs of^the nation under the
direction of Congress. Should we
not -theni have something more nearly
approaching democratized diplomacy?
The Secretary of State Is now responsible to nobody but the President.
He both sends and receives messages
of Uie utmoost importance without
taking the nation into his confidence.
Nobody outside of official ci/cles has
yet seen the correspondence tbat took
place 'between the Taf.t adm.iiDLS.tra-
tion and Henry Lane Wilson wihen
he was the American Ambassjpdor' to
Mexico. Suppose the,'people were to
provide that Congress should n>o*Lonl)'

working elass can afford to treat the . mentg &houW be made I)Ubu<J by tbe
question of war in That fashion and! cluiirmall of the jolUlt congressional
still expect to 'be taken seriously.
In this matter of war, I want to speak
fort myself, AT., ALL TIMES." I "claim
thi-^ night merely because I am a huu^v
man being. And that makes tihe right
universal.

.Comrades may say that.under Socialism there~will be ho war. But do
Comrades reflect .that Socialism is not
•likely to sweep tihe wold worlid on
the same day? Do Comrades reflect
that there wiil ibie such a thing' as the
FHtS.T Socialist state? In my humble
opinion, the first state that tWos to
Socialism will 'have to arm to the
teeth and whip three or four ol the
big capitaliS't nations before it will be
penmiitbed to live in peace. ,We may
'be sure that the capitalist nations will
exert themselves to .the utmost to
destroy the first nation thaft turns to
Socialism. That is the other reason
why -we Socialists sfrould. stand for the
democratization of the war-making
power. War declared, by a clique
would 'be as haiteful in principle 'under
a Socialist state as it would be under
any other kind of -state.
it lis not only difficult but impossible in a short article to expound and
defend, with anything like sufficiency,
the ideas that I have here touched
upon. But I should like to drive these
paragraphic tacks:
Democratized war-making power
and daylight diplomacy are not liko
patent medicines, since they wjll "not
■cure everything. They would not automatically and instantly end war
everywhere the moment they were
adopted by one nation. Tlie nation
■tihat first adopted tbam might and
.probaibly iwoufld be occasionally attacked by nations in which, tlie war-
making power had not been diemoc-.
rajtlzed. .But for every nation that
may turn to democratized war and
diplomacy, two nations will be spared
from the horrors of capitalist war.
The progressive nation will be spared
and what would have been Its victim
will -be spared./And when capitalists
everywhere are deprived of the .power
■to make war anywhere, the working
class will bave peace everywhere
unless it shall' want war somewhere.
Professor iMunsteriberg, in his new
book, "The War and America," says
that It is the people and not the governments of Europe that are warlike,
and that the governments have often
restrained the people from war. Professor -Munisterberg doubtless believes
this. I don't I have faith in the
peaceful inclinations of the working
class. I believe it is ugly only whe,n
it is Hed to. That is "why I wish it to
be informed as to facts and seized of
the war-maglng .power. **

To give tihe public perfect protection, the -members of Congress should
also be subject to recall. But even
without the recall, how much power
the capitalist elass have to mislead
ns into war if wo ha-d daylight diplomacy? Xobqdy would have voted
for the war with Spain If he had read
tihe diplomatic correspondence that
precoded It—correspondence that wias
not publlshe-d by the govern.ra.e'n.t until

tion.

hia economic power, that enables lilm
to declare war, and tliat if this power

nine days' wonder when the dear, easy
people are regaled wiMi more stories
of 'loot in the Rock Island investigation. It appears that nearly everybody
who amounted to anything officially
had a salary of $2ii,000 or more .per annum «nd expenses to begin .with, aud
then enormous amounts of -plunder
were pocketed by various buying and
selling schemes as well kndwii to our
.patriotic railway magnates. One little
job alone netted $210,000,000 for the
burglars on the [irst floor front. They
bought stock at $90,000,600 and watered it up to $300,000,000 and sold, or
course, It was the wealth-producing
power of the laboring people and fawners of the West particularly that enabled the financial bandits to get away
iwlth the swag. An interesting feature
•aibout all this iprobfng into liigh-qlass

Some day very soon a young strapper of 24 years, tanned, hard «,s nails
and clear-faced as an Indian brave,
will walk up to the White House and
ask to see President Wilson. He >will
have with him a petition signed by
3,000,000 (people. To get these si-guu-
*ures this terribly earnest young man
■lias walked 11,000 miles during the
last four years.      \
The young man is Leslie Deitz, and
the petition is ifor the pardon of his
father, John Deitz, "Hero of Cameron
Dam-," now in the Wisconsin' -state
prison under life sentence for murder.     ,  "     .       ■
The story of the Deitz family forms
one of the black pages in iWscon-sln'a
history—one of the pages reminiscent
of the days of Lumber Trust domination and brigandage,
Up -in Sawyer County John, Deitz
owned a bit of land. Through It ran
the Tornapple River, across which
was Cameron Dam on the Deitz premises.
The Chippewa Lumber and .Boom
Company needed tlie Thorn-apple river
and Cameron Dam in Its business. For
seven years it conducted a wanare to
get it, and John Deitz and his family
defended their .possession. The battle
raged in court, where the eld fighter
-.finally won his clear title. It raged ln
ether- ways as well, and one day one
of tbe young children died from
poisoned drinking water taken from a
spring regularly used by the family.
At another -time a posse  of  men
suduenJy appeared  in  a  field   where
John Deitz and his son Clarence -were
loading hay.     The men in the posse
were city alley thugs, dressed in uni-
fcrms of the  State  National  Guard.
The men were not members of the
i guard, and it is not clear just how
jQISjfwere. provided    with   *un4forms,
j Mary tilings tliat "law and order" <na
j in those days are not clear.     They
| weren't to be, ittseems.
j    Dletz was cliargert with cr:me after
| crime.'    Finally he sot the reputation
I of being a "bad man."   After he got
■ that reputation It was easier for the
) Lumber Trust to wage Its war.   Lunv*-
| ber trusts ore farslghted.
"i    Early In 1900 an election was .being
5 j held ln Winter, Wis.,   twelve   miles
I" j from the Deitz farm. Uelu went to
vote. 'A lumberjack picked 'n, fight
! j with "Bad ..Man" Deitz, got htm down
j I and put' -heavy, hob-nailed boots on
i\ his face. Delist managed to -twist an
j I arm around and get a gun Into jwhI-
J! tion. He sent a .bullet through tine
'■ lumber jack's arm, lie could hnvr<
j killed the assailant, bm be didn't be-
j cause, he said, It wasn't n&cewary.
Hut that- seemed to give the powers-
i thiu-were the chartce to finally get
{ John Deitz off his land—the chance to
i got that prised river und dam. A war-
] rant was sworn out once more for
"IPmIh Delta. And nobod) tbireA io(
' serve it. The braver) ooteil out ot j
I ever)- -nun who wnn asked to serve
that warrant. "Bad Man" Deitz would
surely UU any one who went to serve
that, warrant
' Hut unbiased parsons kne.w then ami
know now that the old man never
touched n person that didn't lint
touch tolm. He waa square and open
and fair, and that warrant could Imve
been served, ao any nutn&er will tell
you, without any trouble.   Only there
wife, to whom' a child 'was born a' few
weeks later; Leslie, tlie grown son,
ajid the two little tots, a girl of S and
h-and-scme little Johnnie, not quite 7.
' "Shoot tlie first person that cornea
out of the house," was the ordw to the
armed -riff-raff of lumber _. country
thugdom. They didn't do .that because
even they didn't have the nerve to
shoot an unarmed man wiio was
standing perfectly still, unaware of the
presence of danger. But Jiere is w'iat
did happen, and the picture conies
up in,-my mind today as clear and
striking as tlie reality of four years
au,o In "that desolate pine country of
Wisconsin1. Leslie, this same,'lad who
is on his way to see the President,
started from the cabin to round up a
stray cow. ;His task took him straight
toward Uie muzzles of two'rifles'.
Every'person dn the group of news-
i.-aper correspondents, deputies and village curiosity seekers who stood*-just
back of the firing line in a group of
trees knew what would have to happen. Steadily the boy kept on> aind
every watcher 'breathed hard.
The two rifles biazed .point blank at
tihe -lad when -he was '•- a short fifty
yards away. But they missed, somehow. Just an instant pause, and
then theiboy turned and ran zigzagging back to the cabin in -a perfect
hail of 'bullets. From that instant
until 4.30 ,tha*t affernoon the bullets
tore through the log cabin amd the
frame-.barn. 'The ■mather-toJbe lay
prone on the floor all day, as did the
younger children, pleading with the
father and -husband to surrender. Tlie
father and grown son braved tlie train
of steel-jacketed lead and answered It.
.Then a .bullet shattered one or the
old man'* wrists, It was late afternoon. ' The long siege was telling, the
case was getting hopeless, even before
the bullet found its mark.   But, with
his wrist useless, tiie pleadings of the
wife and the little ones .broke down
his grim determination and he sent
theJittle girl to the door with a white
ctotih in surrender. Proud old fighter,
grim old lover of justice and of his
lights as he saw them, here was an
hour when" his spirit was hiunfiled and
his .power gone.
They .handcuffed him and his son
aud took them away in the dusk, a
greal, hulking figure, mysterious in
tlio shadows of night, but harmless,
a iriscner.
Ou! on 'tlie battlefield where the
deputies had been they found a dead
man afterwards. His name was Oscar Harp. He was shot tiirougli the
head. They charged John Deitz .with
the .murder and somehow thay convicted him in eourj, and sent lura "over
tue road" for life.
There is good grounds to believe
thai the dead deputy was brought
down by a member of his own posse,
since deputies were ranged in a semicircle, with two ends of the line firing
towards-each other. And it appears
to liave been pretty definitely- established that there .wasn't a gun in the
Deitz home that fired the kind of bullet that went into the head of Oscar
Hai-rp.
But John Deitz is in prison. And
the real, de&p-dowai reason that be
is in iprison is that he fought a great
■trust and balked it in its greed lust
and stood fast for what was his and
that he had courage, and that h?
owned Cameron Dam. Thais the
real rtason. The great trust never
cared anything for ithe 'life of a man.
I don't kneiw how much about this
young man's story the President
knows. I dlont know if the young
man will ever get to see the President himself, and I don't know how
much chance there is for the liberty
of the young man's father,-but I know
that thousands iwho know the black
story of it all will 'be. wishing and
hoping for him when he ends his-11,-
000 mile iwalk at the White House
door and unrolls that petition of 3,000,-
000 names—names of Governors, mayors, senators and just plain folks from
everywhere who love liberty and a
fair deal for a good old fighter.—X. Y.
Call.
In This Dark Hour of
-ouf^-Befeat	
recall Savonarola and Roosevelt and
'Peter-the-Hermit and Mrs. Eddy and
Helen of Troy and Evelyn Thaw and
Cassius and Huerta, you feel there is
something to the Philosopher's views,
But the stranger argues just the
same. • He buys eggs from the Philosopher, and with the immemorial
custom of the trader he converts every
occasion cf purchase into an oppor-
tunity for argument.
The war in Europe seemed a magnificent opening. But the Philosopher
parried bravely at first.
'"I have aLways known," he explained wiith reluctant severity, "that
one -man will kill another .man; that
fact, has been established ever since
Cain IclMed his brother Xow, it is a
matter of no importance to nie whioh
one is killed, or ho.w many. There is
nothing new in it.i I have always
known that man is a murderer."
Tilien the stranger said In Ms neart.
"I will educate tbls man." So he
read t'he -war news to the Philosopher
with brutai assiduity every evening.
It-was on the evening of that day
when the allies broke the power of
the invaders and the newspapers
dipped gore and viscera from seven
front page colunms, that the end
came.
■The stranger was \ftppy, he had Che
greatest story of the war to read to
the Philosopher that evening. ' He
found the Philosopher sitting on the
dobrstep of Ms small house. He was
lost in contemplation of nature. It
was such an evening as might well
impress even 6 a matter-of-fact outsider. The sunset splashed crimson
waves over the fields. Above the poplars at the end of the* Philosopher's
garden a cloud with a savior's face
was dying in agony. Xear -the porch
rail by the Philosopher's side an aged
rose 'was nodding its last farewells to
two ■bright rosebuds.
When the outsider saw the Philosopher steeped 'in his dream of peace,
his heart softened. He put the paper
into his pocket. Another time, he
thought, -would do just as well.
The Philosopher hailed him with
the hiah sign of brotherhood, the uplifted palm, for he excluded no man
that evening.
"I say," .began the Philosopher when
the outsider had sat down beside K*m,
"I have been reading Uiosp newspapers you left behind you las.: night.
The outsider was awed. He did not
speak. He waited In solemn silence
to hear what the wise old man wnuld

A SUGGESTION
To the Kditor, District Ledger
Dear Sir,
Two men came to my place recently
soliciting a meal. One asked for
work, toy which to earn the meal. He
got work, but in the midst of his woi.k
lie was called In and given his food.
He ate and enjoyed It, and then went
back and worked long enough to pay
fo;- lt. That man will be we-leome
anywhere, and .will be willingly supplied. The other man came -with a
hard-luck story and begged for food.
He secured it and wont away, and
nobody will wlah to Hen him n se^nd
time. The tlrst established eonfl-
dence, tho second tended to harden
the heart against tlie cry of the needy.
Now I know a good trta-ny are In my
position, In relation to the needs of
many In this district We are 'Willing to help the needy, but we hate
like sin to be buncoed by the lazy
and tbo Improvident. Now there Is
one way by whlc-b those needing help
can establish confidence. John Mit j
chtil, the groat American Labor leader J
says: "Xo man has a right to apend a.
cent upon himself until he hns p rov Id- i
«■<! fnr hie' family; he has no money
necessary for our social requirements.
Why? Simply because men desire to
exploit the labor of others without
any undue effort themselves. The
retail establishments supply the segregated dlBtrlct .with liquor, and those
lu this district supply this liquor to
young men and lads who frequent
such places. The big men of the
town find the restricted district and
the hotels comfortable mediums for
obtaining the money of tho worker.
so -we may rest assured that they
will continue. "Citizen" may ibe sincere, we do not doubt, hut he must
look a little deeper; he must discover
why u man willing to work for -his
eats eannot get thnt work, and why
other* live so comfortably wittiottt any
apparent effort. I
