Rome, March 20.—According to an
interview -wlttf Stephanie Turr, a
daughter of a noted Hungarian general, printed in the Giornale I'talia,
the belief still exists that Emperor
Nicholas and his wife, as well as
some of tho Russian grand dukes were
not put to death by "the Bolsheviki.
The interview quotes a conversation between 'Miss Turr and Prince

(By Scott Nearing)
Allied statesmen, who ar- ■■looking
loi a middle ground between Capitalism and Bolshevism, should heed the
words of Nicholas Tschaikowsky,
president cf North Russia.   "We have
no common ground with the Bolsheviki; there is only one settlement
possible between us; either we prevail over thein, or they prevail over
us." Tschaikowsky is talking sense—
the same sense that Lincoln talked in
1S5S when he said, "No house divided against itself can stand; either
this nation must be all slave or all
free." ' .-••'*
Kurope cannot exist part capitalist
and part Socialist. The issue Js
drawn: the conflict is on. Compromise is futile, because there- can be
no effective compromise between the
spirit of autocracy represented bv
niodtrn capitalism) and the spirit of
democracy represented by the working-
class governments, of Europe.
Kurope will be ruled by the plutocrats or by "the workera. and the
present struggle will continue until a
decision i.« reached. The lino of social'evolution leads inexorably toward
the ultimate victory of thc- workers.

may continue to operaie his own boiler for agricultural purposes without complying with the Provisions of this Section.
To   the   Sixteenth   Annual   Convention  of   the,  United   Mine

Whereas the above, section of the Act compels one class
of labor to be under the expense and trouble of registering
and exempts another class from this expense and trouble, thus
allowing them to compete on the labor market witli an unfair

ask this Convention here assembled to pass a resolution asking
for the following clause to "be struck off from Section 38 A-l:
"Providing,   however,   that   an   engineer   holding   a   Final
Traction Certificate is the owner of a traction or* portable boiler,
he may continue to operate his own boiler for agricultural purposes without complying with the provisions of this Section."

Whereas the above section of the Boilers Act gives the
employers the chance they so much desire in black-listing any
one opposed to their methods, by discharging him and compelling him to record same, that we, the Engineers, hereby
ask your co-operation with us in protesting against such an
unfair clause and ask that it be changed to read;
"It shall be the duty of every stationary engineer or fireman
who assumes charge or vacates his position to notify the De-,

punishable by suspension of his certificate, for such period as

THE DISTRIOT LEDGER, FERNIE,   B.   0.,   MARCH  21,   1919
(Continued from page two)
District Officers and District Organizers be fixed at $175 per month
and legitimate expenses.
MOVED McNab—^Seconded, as an amendment: THAT the salary
of the District President be $200 per month.
Some little confusion with regard to procedure arose, in which
I.B.M. Livett and International Organizers Rees and Irvine and several of the delegates took part in debating.   Delegate Susnar sug-
gested as a further amendment that Article 5, Section 1, be amended
by increasing the salaries of all Officers $15 per month. He failed,
however, to get a seconder to this amendment. On a show of hands
vote on the McNab amendment, that the salary of the District President be v.200 per month, the result was: '"...*7*
■;'.*   The Chair thereupon declared the amendment
An immediate demand was made for a roll call.
Re McNab amendment:

UNION, No nwa,
Only those who have awakened to
the fact that, the greatest of a)l
struggles centers on bread and butter
can understand the significance of the
outcome of the Western Inter-provincial labor gathering at Calgary last
we,ek-     The '"live   wires" from   Uio
thinking b<is considerable weight. But
the days of such men are numbered
so far as their having continued influence with the workers is concerned.
They belong to a bygone age. These
are the days of limited expresses, of
whizzing automobiles, of airship
travel at one hundred and fifty miles
an hour, of wireless winged messages
whirling round the world in a few seconds and of THE ONE BIG UNION.
The world do move.
_ 0 ; _
The Calgary Herald, The Lethbridge
ranks of labor in .Manitoba, Alberta and Herald, The Nelson News and other
British Columbia made up lhe gathering. The promoters of the conference
anticipated au attendance of a hundred, or possibly a ljundred and twenty-five—there were over two hundred
and fifty. Those promoters also
thought, when the idea of a conference originated with them, that the
gathering would assert itself as entitled to greater power in the Trades and
Labor Congress of Canada and make
emphatic a much more progressive
policy than the one which seems to
control the eastern workers.
When the idea of the western conference originated, war was still on.
Since the armistice 'there have been
rapid developments and increasing
problems. It was the unanimous opinion of the conference that such developments and such problems demanded something more drastic from
the ranks of labor than another series
of resolutions ami of prayers and petitions to the government. With almost
its first breath the conference declared that its aims were for the
ccirplete change of the system of
production as it now exists FOR PRO-
PIT to a system of production FOR
USE. It followed up this declaration
with one to the effect that it was immediately necessary for the wage-
workers of Canada to get into ONE
BIG UNION' prepared to aot as a unit,
and it laid the foundation for such a
50 Now Has A
Local Union
That, in brief, was the outcome ot
the conference. If the ONE BIG
UNION idea can be made to stick, the
days of the money power domination
of the country are ended and the
workers must. • remember that the
money power knows that this is so and
is prepared to act accordingly.
The money power in the early days
of labor organizations fought those
organizations wherever they appeared.
The fight was bitte* but organization
among the workers had come to stay
and when the money power came to
realize that fact another line of tactics was adopted. Finding that unions
could not be destroyed, the shrewd
policy was adopted of working from
within and making those unions as impotent as possible., ir Samuel Gompers, before the occasion comes for the
writing of his obituaries, were to he-
come possessed of a conscience and
a desire, to tell all that he knows in regard to the secret negotiations he has
carried on with the money power in
connection with American Federation
"wljanor arniffsThe could write a boo
that would be the sensation of the
ages. The title of the book would bo.
"The Great -Machine." In it he would
tell of the encouragement he and his
fellow tools received in the dividing
and sub-dividing and sub-sub-sub
dividing of labor's forces almost to the
point of infinity. If tho allies could
by some means or other have had the
Prussian hordes so divided that they
would only have been able to strike a
small group here, another there and
others somewhere else it would not
havo taken nearly five years to end
the war. S\o long as the allies themselves were divided and acting individually the Germans with their united
control won victory after victory.
■The decision of the conference to
form OX JO BIG UNION and to sever
connection   wilh  those    international
daily papers in this western part of
Canada are. showing great activity
since the Western Inter-provincial conference launched' the ONE BIG
UNION in "exposing the Bolsheviki."
They are attempting to show that all
Sie men behind the new Canadian
movement are -Bolsheviks and then
they devote much space to show what
rankly immoral people the Bolsheviks
of Russia are.
It is admitted .that ninety per cent
of the Russian people are in support
of the Soviet form of government, are
Bolsheviki, and with these figures in
mind it is interesting to recall how,
only a few years ago all the papers
were teeming with praise of ithe Russian people and filled with expressions
of sympathy for them In their successful attempt to' overthrow Czarism.
These are the people who are be-
ing abused today. If the abuse were
based on facts it would not be so
deplorable. The most recent spasm
of the Western Canadian papers takes
its cue from an article which appeared
last month in Lord Northcliffe's paper
The London Times. In the article are
all sorts of foolish assertions regarding the marriage laws—or lack of
marriage laws—in Soviet-governed
Russia. The Lethbridge Herald is
particularly shocked over the immorality of the Russians and under
a big heading in the same issue tells
hew the police of Lethbridge are
calling for a larger sum of money
with which to combat the "Social
Evil" in Lethbridge.
Years ago the average Briton had
great respect for "The Thunderer,"
as The London Times was fondly
called. Since that paper passed under the control of Lord Northcliffe its,
veracity and the confidence the
people have in it have faded away.
Organized labor has no baser enemy
than Lord Northcliffe and he subtly
uses the Times to discredit any real
activity of the workers.-
The poison gas attack on the Soviet   Government   of  Russia  is  being
directed by Lord Northcliffe and    a
few of the greater leaders    of   the
money power of the   world.     They
start the campaign and unfortunately
there  are  thousands  of papers     all
over the    world  which  lend     their
assistance.   Many of these papers are
wise to what they are doing but the
smaller fry of the dailies, such    as
the Lethbridge Herald, The    Nelson
News, The Calgary Herald and others
do not. understand.   Thev repeat like
parrots "what they hear their masters
say. and it isa sad. a deplorable fact,
dians are readt to swallow as gospel
truth whatever they read in the daily
paper upon which they are forced to
depend for news or what is going   on
in the world,     The "powers that be
know how to take advantage of this
| wenkness.
i During the progress of the war Ger-
| many maintained tho Wolff Bureau of
News,, The German papers were
kept well supplied with stories regarding the atrocities of the allies;
oven tho Canadians were pictured as
immoral nmi bloodthirsty and in the
minds of the German newspaper readers there was instilled a bitter hatred
of everything Canadian. They had no
opportunity of getting at the facts,
And so it is in this country today in

We secured the services of the President and Secretary of Local No. 2615

working in ancl around the mines,
forty-eight members in all. We elected temporary officers and sent for the
organizer to come here. A lively meeting followed, some of the slight grievances coming up for discussion. All
the members signed the checkoff.
After the meeting the officers and.pit

Joe Knight, socialist, of Edmonton,
addressed a crowded house at Michel
on Th> rsday, March 6th. Secretary
Beard had him advertised to speak on
"Present Day Labor Problems," but it
soon appeared to all that the question
was more correct in the singular
sense, problem and not problems. He
pointed out very clearly that there
was only one problem. to solve and
■that was when the workers decide that
they would control their own destinies instead of remaining in slavery?
When we stop to think of it Knight
must have been referring to the class-
struggle in which the workers have
been striving for many years -to obtain the full prodect of their toil, That i
being so we agree with Joe that there
is only one problem to solve and the
Observer will at this juncture venture
to advance the following solution: That
we object to the present system

when it was drawn up, our representatives must have been ginned up

case to a neutral judge to decide when
we have not the least doubt that our
case would be admitted arid the present contract nullified.

as far as can be ascertained he left
Frank to return home to go to work at
about 7.30 p.m. on the same evening.
And at the time of writing nothing
further was known of his whereabouts
until his body was found at about
4.30 p.m. on Sundry, (March 6th, a few
feet off tie main road between Frank
and Bellevue by a lady driving a
cutter. The deceased was a quiet, unassuming man of oyer fifty years of
age, living like iffiiany (Io in this western country, in a aback, which will
explain to a large extent why no one
was unduly alarmed, assuming_they
had any knowledge of,his absenceTThe
finding of the body .caused quite a
little excitement, probably by reason
of the condition of the body. Many
people must have passed by since it
was laying there. Detective -Mclvor
and Coroner Pinkney were soon on
the job and had the body removed to
the workers' hall. The following
were summoned as jurors: J. Robertson, (foreman), D. Walker, J. Cousens,
J. 'McDonald, B. tBartioni and J.
Brooks. Following ancient custom
the jury viewed the body and adjourned to meet on Wednesday at 3.00 p.m.
It is with considerable regret we
record the passing of the youngest
daughter of IMr. and iMrs. J. Brooks,
after a brief illness. It would seem
from the reports of the various doctors in this locality, that we are in the
grip of another epidemic, many children being under the weather.

If letters are inserted in our columns under such anonymous
titles as "Miner," etc., as we did have immediately preceding
the last regular District Election;
Therefore, be it resolved as a policy that no letter appear
in the Ledger attacking the character or integrity of any officer
or member e'-' 3r openly or by inuendo, unless said letter bears
the signature of the writer.
This motion  is not to preclude a member from  writing
anonymously to expose camp conditions, government orders-
in-council, etc., where a member might be discriminated against
by attaching his name to a letter citing objectionable circum-
stauces or conditions.

International Board Member Livett. however, requested before assuming Executive Session that ho be permitted to read an excerpt
from a circular letter just received by him from Frank Farrington,
President of District No. 12. ThiB privilege was accorded and the
following was submitted to the delegation:
"Our goal should be a six-hour day, five days per week, for
all the miners in the United States with no double shift work on
the coal allowed, except as necessity may require, and development
for Increased tonnage should not be considered a necessity. Every
atom of strength of the United Mine Workers of America should
be employed to accomplish that end and then we should strive to
have the government prevent the opening of new operations except
us now operations may be needed to supply the demand for coal,
If this is done every mine worker will then have a decent chance
to earn a decent living and the matter of equalling and adjusting
wages will be easy of accomplishment, and until it is done unemployment and consequent waut and suffering will ever bo present
among the mine workers of thn United States."
President Rings then read the following telegram, wliich relates
to the Paul Hurck controversy:

MOVED Johnston—Seconded Thachuk:    THAT all future arrangements. £or moving, closing down or selling "The District Ledger"
plant be left exclusively in the hands of the Executive Board.
Delegate Basetti then addressed the Convention, pointing out
conditions arising at Coalhurst in connection with the employment of
Asiatics, and suggested that the Convention go emphatically on record
as excluding this class of labor from the Organization and working
in or about the mines.
International Organizer Irvine delivered a very intelligent address in support of Delegate Basetti's suggestion, pointing out from
past experience in the United Mine Workers' organization how detrimental tliis class of labor had been and the utter impossibility of '
reaping any benefit by favoring the organization of Asiatics in the
U.M.W. of A.
ADJOURNMENT was taken at 12.20 until 1.30 p.m.
The Convention reconvened at 2 p.m., President Biggs in the
Delegate Berford requested a correction in the records of the
Proceedings—Eighth Day wherein he was recorded as seconding the
adoption of Resolution No. 59.   Reference to the records substantiated
Delegate Bcrford's contention, as Delegate Beard seconded the adop-
; tion of this resolution. n
MOVED Rees—Seconded Johnston: THAT we go on record as
being in favor of equal pay for equal work without regard to sex or
This motion arose out of the discussion relative to Asiatics employed in various camps in the District. Delegates Basetti, Wheatley
and Crothers discussed this question, when it Was:
MOVED International Organizer Irvine—Seconded: THAT this
Convention goes on record as being emphatically opposed to the introduction of Orientals into the mine or their entry into the country,

"t. see you are,"~saia aarzan, -out i
know you so well that I can scarcely,
believe that your beiug on the same
boat with me is purely a coincidence.
If I could believe it the fact that you
are in disguise would immediately disabuse my mind of any sucb idea."
"Well," growled Rokoff with a shrug.
"1 canuot see what yoii are goiug to
do about it. The vessel tiles the Eug-
lisb flag. 1 bave as much right ou
board ber as you, and from the fact
tliat you are booked under an assumed
name I imagiue that 1 have mure
right." ,
"We will not discuss it, Rokoff. All
1 wanted to say to you is tliatyou must
keep away from Miss Strong—she Is a
decent woman."
Hokoff turned scarlet
"If you don't I shall pitch you overboard," coutlntied Tarzan. "Do not
forget that I am Just waiting for some
excuse." Then be turned on his heel
and left Rokoff standing there trem-
bliug with suppressed rage.
He did not see llie man again for
days, but Rokoff wns not idle. In his
stateroom with l.'iuilvitoli he fumed
nnd swore, threatening the most terrible of revenges.
"I would throw bim overboard tor
night." he cried, "were I sure that,,
those papers were not on his person. I
cannot chance pitching theni into the
ocean with him. If yon were not such
a stupid coward. Alexis, you would
tind a way to enter his stateroom and
search for the documents."
I'aiilvitcli smiled. "You are supposed
to lie the brains of this partner!---hi p. my
dear Nikolas." he replied. "Why do
you not tind the'menus to search M.
Caldwi'll's stalcrouiii. eh?"
Two hours later fate was kind to
theni, for Piiulvitcb, who was erer ou
the watch, saw Tarzan leave his room"
without lockinu the door. live minutes later Itokolf was stationed where
he could give the alarm in ease Tarzan
returned, and Paulvltch was deftly
searching the contents of the ape-
man's luggage. .
He was about to give up In despair
wben lie saw a coat which Tarzan hnd
just removed; A moment later he
grasped an official' ™irp)ntip in hia_
iiand. A quick glance at its contents
brought a broad smile to the Russian's
When he left the stateroom Tarzan
himself could not have told that on article in it bad been touched, because
Paulvltch was a past master in his
chosen field.
After Miss Strong bad gone below
that night Tartan stood leaning over
the rail looking far out to sea. Erery
night be bad done tbla since he had
come on board. Sometimes he stood
thus for an boor. And tbe eyes tbat
bad been watching bis every move-

The day dragged heavily. When M.
Tbiiran stopped again to chat with her
in the a fteruoou she welcomed the
break in the day's monotony. But she
had begun to: become seriously concerned about Caldwell's continued absence. Presently she broached the subject to Al. Thurau. Hud be seen Mr.
Caldwell today?   He had not.   Why?
"He was not at breakfast as usual,
nor have 1 seen lilm once since yesterday," explained the girl.
M. Tbiiran was extremely solicitous.
"I did not have the pleasure of Intimate acquaintance with Mr. Caldwell,"
he said. "He seemed a most estimable
gentleman, however. Cau it be that
he Is Indisposed and bas remained In
his stateroomV it would not be
"No," replied the girl; "it would not
be strange, of course, but for some Inexplicable reason I have one of those
foolish feminine presentiments tbat all
Is not right with Mr. Caldwell. It Is
the strangest feeling. It Is as though
I knew tbat he was not on board the
M. Thuran laughed pleasantly. "Mercy, my .'dear'Miss Strong!" he said.
"Wbere in the world could he be then?
We have not been within sight of land
for days."
"Of course It is ridiculous of me/'
she admitted. And then: "But I am
not going to worry about It any longer.
I ant goihg to find out where Mr. Caldwell Is," And she motioned to a passing steward.
"That may be more difficult than you
Imagine, my dear girl," thought M.
Thuran. but aloud he said. "By all
"Find Mr. Caldwell, please." she said
to the steward, "and tell bim that bis
friends are much worried by his continued absence."
"You are very fond of Mr. Caldwell?"
suggested M. Thuran.
"I think be is splendid." replied tbe
girl. "And mamma is perfectly infatuated with bim."
A minute later the steward returned
to say that Mr. Caldwell waa_notJn^la

"1 do not kii.u wlii- 1 chimin distrust him." slip snid to IIh-zpI one day
as they were discussing him. "He
seems a perfect geutleinau in every respect, but sometimes there is something about his eyes-ti fleeting expression which I caunot describe, but
which wheu 1 see ii gives me a very
uncanny feeling."
The girl laughed. "You are a' silly
dear, mamma," she said. ;
"I suppose so. but I am sorry that
we have not poor Mr. Caldwell for
company instead"
"And 1, too." replied ber daughter.
M. Thuran became a frequent visitor
at the home of Hazel Strong's uncle
in Cape Town. At length, feeling the
moment propitious, he proposed. Miss
Strong was startled. She did not know
what to say.
"I bad never thought that you cared
for me in such a way," she told him*
"I have looked upou you always as a
very dear friend. I shall not give you
my answer uow. Forget that you have
asked me to be your wife, Let us go
on as we have been-then 1 can consider yon from au eutirely different
angle for a time. It may be that I
shall discover that my feeling for yoo
Is more tban friendship. I certainly
have not thought for a moment that I
loved you."
This arrangement was perfectly satisfactory to Af. Thurau. Ho deeply regretted that he had been hasty, but he
had loved her for so long a time and
so devotedly that he thought that every
one must know it.
"From the first ilnie that I, saw yoo.
Hazel," he said. "I bave loved you. I
am willing to wait, for 1 am certain
tbat so great and pure a love as mine
Will be rewarded. All that 1 care to
know is that you do not love another.
Will you tell me?"
"1 have never been in love In my
life," she replied and he was quite satisfied. On the way home that nlgbt he
purchased a steam yacht and built a
$1,000,000 villa ou the Black sea.
The next day Hazel Strong enjoyed
one of tbe happiest surprises of her
life—she ran face to face upon Jane
Porter lis she was coming out of a
jeweler's shop.
"Why, Jane Porter!" she exclaimed.
"Where In the world did you drop
from?   Why, I can't believe my own
"Well, of all things!" cried tbe equal-
ly astonished Jane. "And here 1 bave
been wasting whole reams of perfectly
good Imagination picturing you ln Baltimore—the very Idea!" And she threw
ber arms about ber friend once more
and kissed ber a dozen times.
By tbe time mutual explanations bad
been made Hazel knew that Lord Ten-
stateroom. "I cannot find him, Aliss
Strong. and"-he hesitated—"I have
learned that bis berth was not occupied last nlgbt. I think that 1 bad better report the matter to tbe captain."
"Alost assuredly," exclaimed Miss
Strong. "I shall go with you to tbe
captain myself."
It waa a very frightened young woman and an excited steward who presented themselves before tbe captain a
few moments later. He listened to
tbelr stories in silence, a look of concern marking bis expression as tbe
steward assured bim tbat be bad
sought for tbe missing passenger in
every part of tbe ship tbat passengers
might be expected to frequent
The captain ordered an Immediate
and thorough search of Uie entire ship
from stem to stern-no nook <u cranny
was to be overlooked. It waa a full
hour later tbat tbe Hint ottlcer returned
to report tbe outcome of the search.
"Mr. Caldwell Is not ou board, sir,"
be said.
"1 fear tbat tbere la something mora
serious tban accident here, Mr. Brent-
ly," said tlie captain. "1 wlsb that you
Town for at least a week's stay and at
the end of tbat time wns to continue
on her voyage, this time up tbe west
coast, and so back to England, "where,"
concluded Jane, "1 am to be married."
"Then you are not married yet?*
asked Hazel.
"Not yet," replied Jane, and then
quite Irrelevantly, "I wish England
were a million miles from here."
Visits were exchanged between tbe
yacht and Basel's relatives, Dinner*
were arranged and trips Into tbe surrounding country to entertain tbe visitors, M. Thuran was a welcome guest
at every function. He gave a dinner
himself to tbe men of tbe party and
managed to ingratiate himself in the
good will of Lord Tennlngton by many
little acts of hospitality.
M. Thuran bad heard dropped a hint
of something whleb might result froni
this unexpected visit of Lord Tcnnlng-
ton's yacht, and be wanted to be counted ln on It Once wben be was alone
with the Englishman be took occasion
to make it quite plain that his engagement to Mitts Strong was to be announced Immediately upon tbelr return

"Aye, uye. sir!" responded Mr. Brent-

two days she did not leave ber cabin,

Miss Strong could catch her Jane Porter bad slipped to tbe floor In a swoon.
After Hazel had restored her chum

they could not clearly translate into
the precursors of some grim and ter-  \
I'ible tragedy to come. \
Nor did the croakers have long to ■
wait.    The   second   uiRht    after   the
drowning of the mate the little yn-.-ht  ;
was suddenly  wracked from stem to :
stern.   About 1 o'clock iu the morning \
there was a terrific impact that threw j
the slumbering quests- and crew from |
bunk  nnd   berth.   A   mighty  shudder j
ran  through  the  frail  craft: she lay
far  over  to   starboard;   the   engines
stopped.    For   a   moment   she   liujig
there with her decks at nn angle of
forty-five degrees—then, with a sullen,
rending sound she slipped back into
the sea and-righted.
Instantly the meu rushed upon deck,
followed closely by the women. The
night was densely,b'.-tcn. lhough there
was little or no sea. Just olf the port
bow a dim black mass could be discerned floating low in tlie water.
"A derelict," was the terse explanation of the officer of the watch.
Presently the engineer hurried on
deck in. search of the captaiu.
"That patch we put ou the cylinder
head's blown out. sir," he reported,
"and she's malclu' water fast for'ard on
the port bow."
An instant later a seaman rushed up
from below.
"My Gawd!" he cried. "Her whole
bleedln' bottom's ripped out She can't
float twenty minutes."
"Shut up!" roared Tennington. "Ladies, go below and get some of your
things together. It may not be so bad
as that but we may bave to take to
the boats. It will be safer to be prepared. Go at once, please. And, Captain Jerrold, send some competent man
below, please, to ascertain the exact
extent of the damage. In the meantime I might suggest tbat you bare
the boats provisioned."
The calm low voice of the owner did
much to reassure the entire party, and j

time the ladles had returned to the deck

j There he righted and examined it.
The boat was quite sound nnd a moment later Boated upright alougside
tlie wreck. Then Tarzan selected several pieces of wrecUage that might answer him as paddles aud presently was
making good headway toward the far
otT shore.
It was late In the afternoon by the
time he came close enough to distinguish objects on land or to make out
the contour or the shore line. Before
tiim lay what appeared to be the en-
trauce to a little, landlocked harbor.
The wooded point to the north was
strangely familiar. Could it be possible that fate bad thrown bim up at
tbe very threshold of his own beloved
jungle! But as tbe bow of bis boat entered the mouth of tbe harbor the last
shred of doubt was cleared away, for
there before bim upon the farther
shore, under tbe shadows of his primeval forest, stood his own cabin—built
before bis birth by the band of his
long dead father, John Clayton, Lord
Grey stoke.
With long sweeps of his giant muscles Tarzan sent tbe little croft speeding toward the beach.   Its prow had

"Well, sir?" said the captain as bla

"I dislike to frighten the ladles, sir,"
he said, 1'but she can't float a dozen
minutes, in my opinion.  There's a bole ''-

eyes—the cabin, the beach, the little

continued. "Ob, Hazel, are you

"I am afraid not, my dear," answered Basel sadly. "I wish I could think

(ti) Developing collective homesteads in agriculture* (in preference to individual homesteads) as the most profitable system of saving labor and material, with a view to passing on to Socialism.
Article 12. The appointment of land among the laboring population is to be carried on on the basis of each one's ability to till it
and in accordance with local conditions, so that the production and
consumption standard may not compel some peasants to work beyond their strength; and at the same time it should give them sufficient means of subsistence.
Article 13.   Personal,, labor js   the   general   and   fundamental
source of the right to use the land for agricultural purposes. In addition, the organs of the Soviet power, with a view to raising the
agricultural standard (by organizing model farms or experimental
fields) are permitted to borrow from the surplus land fund (formerly
belonging to the Crown, monasteries, ministers, or land-owners) certain plots and to work them by labor paid'by the state. Such labor
is subject to the general rules of workmen's control.
Article 14. All citizens engaged in agricultural work are to be
insured at the expense of the state 'against old age;-'sickness, or injuries which incapacitate tliem.
Article 15. All incapacitated agriculturists and the members
of their families who are unable to work are to be cared for by the
organs of the Soviet power.
Article 16. Every agricultural homestead is to be insured against
fire, epidemics among cattle, poor crops, dry weather, hail, etc., by
means of mutual Soviet insurance.
Article 17. Surplus profits, obtained on account of the natural
fertility of the land or on account of its location near markets, are
to be turned over for the benefit of social needs to the organs of the
Soviet power.
Article 18. The trade in agricultural machinery and in seeds is
monopolized by the organs of the Soviet power.
Article 19. The grain trade, internal as well as export, is to be
a state monopoly.
