It is not a pleasant thing to have to
draw attention to class bickerings and
consequent national weaknesses at
such a time as the present; ,but it is
Lhe duty of someone to do it. We
have heen told so often—and we firmly ibelieve, we of the working classes—
•that we are at present engaged In a
war with Germany because of our belief In the cause of freedom and right
against militarism and might, that it
is somewhat disconcerting to find that
might is 'busy in certain quarters in
this country flouting and trampling
upon right. A certain number of employers and merchants are using the
present tragic circumstances In Europe to grind down still further the laboring:, classes, and it is surely time
that some step was taken to check
this. The working class has to do
most of the work of producing wealth;
and it has to do most of the fighting
to protect it. And the working class
has shown itself only" too willing to do
'Ft. At the first call for more men
for the Army, the men in the factories
foundries, workshops and mines, thre*,v
down their tools and enlisted in hundreds of thousands, asking only—asking, not demanding or bargaining for
it, minil—that the nation should keep
tlieir homes together arid find their
dependents food whilst they were
away. And what was the result? The
result was that more men enlisted in
the early days of the war than could
well .be trained and equipped, and tlie
nation did not jump to the succour of

For several mouths a number or
burglaries have been committed, clearly proving there was a sang with moro
than ordinary daring at. work iu the
community, The peculations have
ranged from the pilfering of small articles of but little value to thefts of
silverware, jewelry and other merchandise, worth several hundred dollars.
■From the numerous complaints mado
by chicken raisers about depredations
made upon their feathered belongings,
it was evident that somebody was often
indulging In an illicit enjoyment of a
toothsome meal. One of the most recent sufferers to report a decrease in
his poultry yard to the police authorities waB an Italian living a short
distance west of the Brewery* who,
upon counting his brood one morning,
made the discovery that there was a
shortage of 18 cliickens.
The members of the police force
have been using every effort to locate
the law-breakers, but without avail,
until Tuesday, when the proprietor of
the shooting gallery in the Miners'
Building Informed Chief Brown that
he had recently bought his first batch
of chickens in Fernie, and upon the
Chief and the Italian visiting the place,
the latter recognized some iu the pen
as those he had lost. The Italian, accompanied by the proprietor of the
shooting gallery, Walter Harwood, as
Interpreter,    and    Constable    Dooley,

include the controller or starting

Th^re is no merit in duplicating unnecessarily either switches or instruments, as the' simpler ..the apparatus
in a mine the better, but every installation should be provided with circuit-
opening devices fixed in well-chosen
situations, designed and adjusted to
open the circuit in the event of a fault
or. leakage of current. These may
take the form of switches, arranged
so as to cut off the current automatically under certain, conditions, or of
fuses. Tbey should be so adjusted
that they will act with certainty. On
high pressure and on extra-high pressure systems and for controlling circuits of large power below ground,
switches fitted with automatic circuit-
opening devices are essential. The

(iv.) of a conductivity at all parts and
at all joints at least equal to 50 per
cent, of the conductivity of the largest Conductor enclosed by the said
metallic  covering;   and ' (v.)  where
covering is from many points of view
to be preferred. If cables provided
.w.lth a lead sheath and iron or steel
armoring are used, they will in general have a -bedding of some material preferably non-inflammable between tlie'lead and the armoring, and
this  also  is  desirable.     .Before   tbe
there may be risk of igniting gas, coal armoring is applied, the bedding should

Regulation 129.
All cables, other than Flexible Cables for Portable Apparatus and signalling wires, shall comply with the following requirements:—
(a) They shall be covered .with in-,
sulating material (except that the outer conductor of a concentric system
may be bare). The lead sheath of
lead-slieafned cables and the iron or
steel armoring or armored cables shall
be of not less thickness respectively
than is recommended by the Engineering Standards Committee.
ib) Thoy shall be efficiently protected from mechanical damage and
supported at sufficiently frequent intervals and in such a manner as adequately to prevent danger and damage
to the cables.
(c.) -Concentric cables, or two-core
circuit-opening devices fiBbe used for'or multi-core cables protected  by  k
a particular installation must depend
upon, firstly, the extent of tbe sys-
metalllc covering, or single-core cables
protected by a metallic covering which

the voltage of supply and Jhe type of
current ln use, whether alternating or
direct current, thirdly, the conditions
underground as regards the risk of fire
or explosion ln the event of open
sparking; and fourthly, the type of
automatic device adopted. In connection with the latter point it amy ln
general -be said that it is better to
have one or two thoroughly reliable
devices -conveniently placed and arranged to cut off the current as quickly as possible from the whole or part
oi the system, rather than hare such
gear attached to every switch in the
mine. 'All relays, trip-colls, and similar apparatus should be of sound mechanical construction, and tbey should
be so arranged that they cannot easily
get out of adjustment. Any parts
which may require adjustment should
be fixed so that they are readily accessible for examination. All switches should be periodically opened by
means of such devices, in order to
make sure that all the mechanism
and all the contacts, main and auxiliary, are in proper working order.
Simple automatic appliances .working on various principles (overload,
leakage current, etc.) are now obtain
able which, while operating instantan
eously in the event of a. fault, do not
operate on a mere temporary overload
—a great practical convenience. Such
appliance.r are,a  very material  l>n-

pressure exceeds low pressure; (11.)
where the road-way conveying the cables Is also used for mechanical haul
age; and (lit.) where there may be
risk of igniting gas, coal dust, or other
inflammable material.
Provided that if the medium pressure direct current system is used (i.)
two single-core cables protected .by
metallic coverings may be used for
nny circuit if the said -metallic coverings are bonded together by earth conductor^ so placed that tho distance between any two consecutive bonds is
not greater than 100 f^et measured
nlong either cable, and (li.) two single
core cables covered with insulating
material efficiently protected other-
wish than by a metallic covering, may
be used in gate roads (except in gate
roads which are also used for mechanical haulage, or -where there may be
risk of Igniting gas, coal duet, or other
inflammable material) for the purpose
of supplying portable apparatus.
(d.). Cables unprotected by a metallic covering sha-ll be properly secured
by some non-conducting and reaiM'y
-breakable material to efficient insulators.
(e.)' The metallic covering of every
cable shall be (i.) electrically continuous throughout; (il.) earthed. If it is

Provided tliat where two single^core
cables protected 'by metallic coverings bonded together in accordance
witli paragraph (c) of this regulation
are. used for a circuit, the conductivity
of each of the sal<i metallic coverings
at all.parts and at all joints shall be
at least equal to 25 per -cent of the
conductivity, of the conductor enclosed
thereby,
, (f.) Cables ana "conductors where
joined up to motors, transformers,
switchgear, and other apparatus, shall
be installed so that (1.) they are mechanically protected by securely attaching the metallic covering (if any)
to the apparatus; and (ii.) the insulating material at each cable end is efficiently -sealed so as to prevent the
diminution of its insulating properties.
Where necessary to prevent abrasion
or to secure gas-tightness, there shall
'be  properly  constructed -bushes.
Paragraph (b) Cable suspenders of
leather and other flexible material
have been successfully used and flexible suspenders iwill no doubt continue
to be used where the conditions require that form of support. The regulation is, however, drawn so as to
allow the' choice of that method of
suspension or support which best
suits the conditions in .the mine.
•Paragraph (d.) Where a number of
insulated but unarmored cables are
brought together their outer coverings
should -be fireproofed.
'Paragraph (e) The nature and extent of the protection to be provided
against the corrosion of cable armoring -will depend upon the amount of
moisture present and the analysis of
the pit water.
In the case of a pit where gas may
occur, the question of the most efficient metallic covering for the cables
deserves -the most careful consideration. What is required Is a covering
which will prevent open sparking in
the event of an arc occurring inside
th-e cable. With properly designed
circuit openiug devices, a fault should
be cut off as ebon as it occurs before
a current of any great magnitude has
passed for any length of time, and
the absence of open sparking may ln
these circumstances be secured by using a cahle provided with a substantial -metallic covering JKnj-.-thiE-.iu!g.

Regulation 130.
(a) Flexible cables for portable apparatus shal! be two-core or multi-
core and covered with insulating .material which shall be efficiently protected from mechanical damage. If a
flexible metallic covering be used either as the outer conductor of a concentric system or as a means of protection from mechanical damage the
same shall not alone be used to form
an earth conductor for the portable
apparatus.
(b) Every  flexible  cable  for  portable apparatus shall -be connected to!

possible to trace them out readily,
resulting in mistakes in remaking connections, apart from tbe more serious  risk of fire.      Such .conductors
should be carefully run and securely
fixed.
■Sub-paragraph (i.) provides for the
mechanical protection of cables where
they are joined up to apparatus. The
ends of armored cables should be
finished off .by seeming the armoring
to a spigot, or to a gland screwed into
the switch box or cable dividing box,

protection for the insulation of the

Where it is not desired to use a lead
sheath,' double armoring with one or
inore layers of well water-proofed non-
inflammable bedding between the ti-vo
layers ot armoring may be used.
Where for any reason it is desired to
use single armoring only, the conductivity and otber requirements of an
efficient metallic covering may be obtained by a copper sheath under the
armoring, but well separated from it
by moderately thick bedding. The
important point is that in order effectively to avoid open sparking the
metallic sheath nearest io the conductors should <be air-tight, as is a lead
sheath or armoring over a properly
formed bedding, or a number of sub
stantlal and well impregnated non-inflammable wrappings, designed to prevent an arc -from penetrating to the
outside o-f the cable.
The requirements as regards conductivity of an efficient metallic covering
and the thickness of armoring are inserted -to ensure firstly that when a
fault occurs there shall not be an excessive drop of voltage in the metallic
covering, or overheating, and second
ly that there Shall be sufficient me
ch'anical strength to resist' rougl
usage. In special cases, where there
Is danger of very heavy falls, or of
runaway tubs, or of severe mechanical damage, it may be desirable or essential to increase still further the
thickness of armoring, or otherwise to

Sub-paragraph (ii.) provides for tlie
use of terminal boxes or sealing cham-

neglected in underground work in the
past. Proper protection is -best effected by a sealing chamber dividing

chamber may with' advantage be com-
■bined .with the terminals of the switch-

OF LABOR CONVENTION
The It. C. Convention of Labor was
held this year iu the City of Nanaimo.
There wore no forhmllties in the form
of "speeches of welcome" as the late
strike had drawn the line of demarkn-
tlon /between La-bor and Capital and
those commonly called.."the' public"
had to show where they allied themselves. Nanaimo Local No. 2155,
United'Mine Workers of America, soon
made their presence felt by having,
through their experience of the strike
and the lessons learned therefrom,
drafted several Important resolutions
and had them down for discussion.
One of the most important was on the
question of "picketing," und reau as
follows:

Certainly newspapers should not publish article that Incite riot, but what is
inciting riot? Say two articles are
published, one in a newspaper opposed to the ideas of certain people who
subsequently indulge in a riot, and another iu a newspaper supporting them,
the first violently Abusive of the potential rioters, the second equally abusive of the other side, who shall say

Socialism and War
How the Socialists Met the War
By Morris Hillquit
During the critical diplomatic negotiations which preceded the Austro-
Htingariaii declaration of war on Servia, parliamentary government in Austria was practically -suspended. The
Reichsrath was not in session, and
was neither consulted nor informed
a'bout the fateful .move contemplated
by the cabinet.      When, on the 23rd jaiisation of the calamity of which we
peace aud to make war impossible.)
If our earnest protests and our repeated efforts have been fruitless, if
the circumstances in which we live
have once more proved themselves
stronger than .we and our will and the
will of our fellow-workers, we must
now face whatever may come iwith
firmness.
"The   gruesome   self-destruction   of
j the European nations is the cruel re-j
of July, ihe government of the dual
monarchy hurled the flaming' torch
into the exposed powder magazine of
Europe by presenting its now historic
ultimatum to the little Balkan neighbor, the people of Austria were placed
■before an accomplished fact.
The first protest against the uncompromising and provocative attitude of
their government came from the Gep-
man-speaking Socialist members of
the Austrian parliament.
"We are convinced," proclaimed, in
a memorable manifesto, "that all that
Austria-Hungary demands for the protection of her state-integrity could be
obtained, and still can be obtained, by
peaceful methods, und that no necessity of state mid uu consideration for
its prestige requires the Great Power
to abandon tho paths of peaceful adjustment. Therefore we declare in the
name of thc working class of Austria
that we cannot stand sponsor for this
to tho defense of their imperiled- iia-
sia 'wore at war;, it .was to be expected faith and' on: ..plausible grounds that
have vainly been warning the ruling
classes for more than a generation
. . . . Comrades, we call upon you
to remain steadfast in the unshakeable
confidence that in spite of all the future belongs to the universal brotherhood of Socialism, to justice and humanity!"
The voice of Socialist protest was
silenced. "The weapons of crlticlsjn
had yielded to the critique of weapons."
To us In the neutral countries the
situation on first impression seemed
monstrously Incredible. Until' the 31st
day of July the Socialists of Europe
were united by the strongest and 'most
intimate bonds of international solidarity and brotherhood. In the first
days of August they confronted one
another lu sanguinary conflict on tho
bat'tle-field.
It is estimated that from two to
three million   Socialists   have   been
war, hut that we place the re8ponsi-jdrafted ,nt0 act|ve servlce ,n the raukg
blllty for it and for all the frightfully |of the OI)poslng armleS( and it cannot
grave consequences that may arise
from It. at the door of those who have
planned, supported and carried out the
fateful step which has led us into this
n-ar."
Two days later, when it became apparent that >the Austro-Servlan dispute
was but a mild prelude to what threatened to become the world's most stupendous conflict; 'When the war clouds
swiftly gathered on the horizon of aii
great  European  countries, black  and
even be truthfully maintained that the
Socialist participation in the war is
purely compulsory. The Social Democratic deputies ln the German
Reichstag voted in favor of the huge
war loans. The Socialists of France
and Belgium took the unprecedented
step of allowing their authorized representatives to accept portfolios in
the cabinets of their governments,
which had practically resolved themselves  into  Councils of National  De-
heavy, presaging a storm of unparallel-jfense.     The Socialist and labor press
ed violence, the Socialists of Germany
raised their warning voices in a vigorous  and   eloquent   proclamation,  call-
of all  belligerent countries  generally
endorsed   the   stand   of   their   parlia-j
mentary representatives.     It   is  true,
tional integrity. The sentiments of
the French Socialists are eloquently
expressed in the official manifesto of
tneir party issued immediately after

"It is the future, of the nation, it is

"Spontaneously, without awaiting a

"Today, as yesterday after the first

While the situation of England was
not In all points similar to that of (Belgium or France, the world has by tacit
accord extended great leniency of judgment to those English Socialists who
unqualifiedly support the .war policy
of their government, and to the British
(Labor 'Party, which overwhelmingly
favors the war. The great British Empire presents itself in this war as the
chivalrous -champion of weak nations
and as the stern defender of In't-irtia-

brutal force of oppression and milit.ar
Ism, and the world at lange seems Inclined to acquiesce in this somewhat
romantic interpretation of the English
motives of armed interference
As to Russia, Servia, Montenegro,
Turkey and Japan, the Socialist movements in these countries are of so
little iweight and influence that they
never were considered serious (factors
for the prevention of wars in their
respective countries.
The brunt of the Socialist reproaches and anti-Socialist taunts are-direct-
that the Russian troops would attempt

er such attempt hajL then already been
made, or wilder it would be made
a few days later,.could not materially
alter the situation. • .*'
Neither the theory of treason or
cowardice, nor that of credulity and
ignorance, offer an adequate explanation for the conduct or the German Socialist deputies. The truth seems to
lie much deeper- and to require a more
thorough and -dispassionate analysis
of the situation. '

timately questioned.* But these men
spoke not for themselves alone, but
for the majority of their constituents.
The great bulk of the five and a half
million Socialists and Socialist voters of Germany ani Austria spontaneously and simultaneously rallied to
the support of their countries as soon
as war had been declared. They had
no opportunity for mutual consultation. They acted on Impulse, which
broke through with elemental force.
It. was not a decUlon, not a policy—It
was history, and. history cannot be
scolded or praised;it must be understood. t
It ls asserted on the part of certain
critics that the German Social Democrats have missed a grand historic opportunity by falling to rise against
their governments. In a way they
undoubtedly have. And so have the
French and English Socialists aud the
workers, and peace advocates and humanitarians and Christians of all the
nations now at war. Human imagination can hardly conceive of a more sublime spectacle than a universal rising
of all that ts best lh the nations, the
men of 'brawn. and brain and hearts
against the savage atrocities of war;
an imperative defi hurled by the peace-
loving people of the world into the
teeth of the mischievous war-makers
of the nations—"Thou Shalt Not!"—
But alas! history is not made of iridescent romance, but of gray and stern
reality. Large masses of human beings are moved hot by remote and abstract ideals, but iby their immediate
compelling interests. When they
scent danger they aet on the Instinct
of self-preservation.
The conduct of the Socialists of
France In Belgium in this war meets
with general approval on the ground
that their countries are engaged in a
defensive war against the aggressive
German forces. The Socialists of
Germany profess to believe that their
country Is under a. similar necessity
to flffht against a Ahreatenlng invasion
of the Russian troops.
Whether the German Socialists are
in the diplomatic correspondence and
/negotiations preceding the .war. Every
country makes oii-Ta plausible case of
compulsory self-defense and furnishes
proof of bertlicose aggression on the
part of Its opponent
Austria was forced to deliver its
stern ultimatum by the open and violent Great-Servian agitation aimed at
the disintegration of the monarchy,
Servia clearly demonstrated its'pacl-
tic disposition by the acceptance .of
the main points of Austria's onerous
conditions and by the offer of arbitration of the remaining disputes. Russia, tn the language of Lloyd George,
"could not stand aside with -crossed
arms while Austria strangled her little brother," and for political reasons
she obviously could not tolerate Austria to become the predominant power
iif the Balkans. Germany could not
remain inactive in the -face of the
mobilization of Russian troops, nor
conld she forsake her ally who, according to the German conceptions as
expressed in the Kaiser's proclamation of August 6th. was "fighting for
her position as a great power and
with iw-hose humiliation our power and
honor iwould be equally lost." Bel-
glum und France were almost physically forced Into this war. Great Britain could not passively permit Germany to violate its international treaty
obligations, crush France and Russia,
gain the undisputed hegemony of Europe and military and commercial superiority over England.
Each of the warring nations. had
vital interests to defend and each
seemed tp'be anxious ito preserve thoso
interest with a sanguinary conflict.

orunients In the Triple Entente are

Prevention of Accidents
Some American Suggestions

FERNIE
B. C.
In the report of the Department of
Mines, Pennsylvania,1' the problem of
accident in and about anthracite mines is discussed hy the Hon.vJames E.
Roderick, Chief of Department of
Mines.
lie recalls that the most prolific
causes of accidents inside the mines
are falls, cars, blasts, gas, falling into
shafts and slopes, suffocation and explosives. |
If accidents inside the mines are to
be .reduced, and they should be reduced by .one-half, special care and attention must be given to the causes above
enumerated. In all mines, but especially in mines iwhere the pitch of
the seam is 'less than 35 degrees, accidents from falls must be given the
greatest consideration.
He asks managers in the interest of j
the safety of the mine workers to put
in practice the following suggestions:
1. To Reduce. Accidents by Falls
(a) That }n addition to the work of
fire bosses or assistant foremen 'before
the employes enter the mine, as provided by law, you will order that two
daily inspections of every working
place (except in mines where breasts
are -being worked full) be made by
the mine foreman or an assistant mine
foreman, one .between 7 a.m. and 12
noon, and one between 1 p.m. and 5
p.m., while the men are or ought to

that our profits are become unprofitable to us, and our gains do make us

"'Now, the soothsayers were men

for the capitalists unto the people, and
did their embassies for them, seeing
that the capitalists were not a folk

saying, "it Is neither by glut nor yet

so that our labor is in vain, and the
more we toll to fill the tank the sooner dotb it overflow, and we may receive nothing because thore is too

soothsayers. Hut behold, the capitalists are hard men and their tender
mercies are cruel. Tell us if you
know any way whereby we may deliver ourselves out of our bondage unto them. Rut H you know of no certain wny of dollveraiicp, wo beijeech
you to hold your peace and let us
alone, that we may forget our misery."
•"And the agitator* answered »n<J

""And the people said: "Deceive us

have .sought It carefully tttth t**ra.
But If you know a way, speak unto ua

' 'Then the agitator* spake onto th*
people of the way.    And tbey said:

Do yo for yourselves that whioh Is

time, as ye see fit, ye -shall choose
other discreet men In place of thf

"'And the peoplo hearkened, and
Uie filing was very good to them. Likewise seemed It not a hard thing. And
with one voice thoy cried out: "80 let
lt be as yo have said, for we will do
It!"
'"And the -capitalists heard the
noise of the shouting and what the
people said, and the soothsayers heard
It also, likowiso the false prlesta and
the mighty men or war, who were a
defence unto the capitalists, and when
they heard thoy trembled exceedingly,
so that their knees smote together,
and they said one to another, "It Is the
ond of us!"
'"Howbe It there were certain true
priests of the living aod who would
not prophesy for the capitalists, but
