Chief Inspector o* Mlnea Admitted He
Had.Held Back Information
NUN-AIMO, July 8—The Inquiry into
the mine disaster was concluded yesterday afternoon, Mr. Justice .Murphy
reserving his report and adjourned the
commission;  !   '       •-" i .
1 - The principal witness of the day was
Thomas Graham, chief inspector ■ of
^' _ who 'Was subjected to a severe
examination by counsel representing relatives of vict'ms of the dip-'
a-,uer, nud was critlci^l by Mr. Judtdue
Murphy for suppressing evidence at
;■* tbe Inquest in allowing plans to- be presented iyhiph the chief inspector knew
to be,wrong.
.   . Mr. Graham informed    the   court
, tbat he had been .inspector of -mines
- Binds 1912.    He had arrived at South
' Wellington as soon as possible after
the accident.    He. had spoken to Ur.
Tonkiin at once.    On returning to his
own office in Victoria, he had found
the plans showing the relative positions of the.two workings.'.   He then
had got out'the original plan filed with
the department. • He at once had detected the difference in scale in the
two sections; and' thought of that as
the profoablp cause of the disaster.   It
was his custom to stipulate that full
plans should be given him when work-
. ings were approaching water, and if he
believed there was special danger, he
hgd power -to stop the work.    He had
no reason to doubt the -company's
-' plans,
fiji^ked 'what guarantee he had that
Building Industry of Windy City Paralyzed for Two Months—Agreement for Three Years
Southfield plan was correct,
witness said ho had none. The distance between the workings was- so
great that,he,did not consider there
was any danger. He had known that
the company had had full information
supplied by the Western Fuel Company. Foy had worked for years for
the company. Foy -should have known
of the difference of scale. Newton, he
admitted, did not know. There was
no question that the correction of the
plains would bring the two workings
together. New'ton's report oa the ac-
■i-^Cfdant had Jbeen written after witness I go.
fBiffToitTliifm of The difference In scale,
bjlt,that report said nothing ot the difference. Witness' own report, how-
ifor, Referred to that matter. The
bl\i$e fas reasonably -clear to witness
-^■'WUhat atage, bul there were other
ftWoMtn to be settled before he could
^ nfrke up his mind, positively.
t, y'ilt witness had beea ao careful and
s^eautious after the' accident, Mr. Far-
fells asked,.should he not have shown
.more' caution when the Urea of < ao
many men were at stake?     .    .
Mr. Graham said he could not state
his reason tn public without -being able
to prove tha^t the cause of tho accident was the difference of scales. He
new atated this'definitely.'
Asked by Mr. Farrta why be had not
made known to the coroner's jury the
existence of the wrong plana, iMr. Ora*
ham replied tbat tho coroner atated
thst the plans would ibe gone into at
• the subsequent inquiry. Consequently
wittiest not being sure by proof of tbe
cause of the accident, did not think
It necessary. The coroner, he thought
had not known of the discrepancy.
Witness had seen no necessity for
bringing up the fact before the coroner's jury. If some one in the audience
bad not pointed out the discrepancy,
the coroner's jury would not have
known about it at all.   ,
Mr. Karris—What did you think the
coroneVs jury was for?      ♦     '
Mr. Graham—To find out the cause
of the deaths.
Mr. Farrls—A doctor would have sufficed, for that The coroner was to go
into the causes.
His Lordship said he was not satisfied at the suppression ot information
at the inquest by the inspector. In justice to himself he asked the Inspector
to clear this matter ufo.
•Mr. Graham said he had suppressed
the fact in vlewi of the following inquiry.
His Lordship—What was the Inquest
for then? It was a farce. The main
piece of evidence wae held. back.
Witness said he did not think it vital
till the inquiry was held. At Fernie in
March, 1912, the coroner's jury had
found a verdict against the Inspectors,
but the official inquiry was not held
until summer. Witness said he had
been informed by the minister of mines that the inquiry would 'be held as
soon as the survey was made. No
date had been mentioned, however.
Counsel suggested.that>if Mr. Tonkin
and. witness had -come out frankly and
explained the discrepancy the matter
would have heen cleared up then.
Mr. Graham said he had not had the
correct plans at hand at that time,
and in fact did not know that some of
them existed.
His Lordship—Have the inspectors
to depend entirely, on the company officials for the plans, having to take
their word? ..    .
His Lordship—iThere is no protection for miners in the matter ot plans?
Witness—As far as the inspectors

OHfCAOO, JUly 10.—-.The strike of
16,000 union carpenters, which for two
months practically has paralyzed the
building industry in .Chicago, is over.
Settlement ,on all points at issue
was reached early today after com-
mitjees representing the carpenters,
building construction employers association and building material interests had been locked in conference
since 2 o'clock yesterday afternoon.
The carpenters vyere ordered to return to work at once.
The agreement reached provides
that the men shall receive 70 cents an
hour and that thsy accept what is
called a "Uniform Agreement" which
will prevent strikes and lock-outs.
The. agreement is for three years,
dating from May 31.. It provides for
a closed shop and also stipulates that
there shall ibe no restrictions regarding the source of building material—
whether it is manufactured here or
The settlement was regarded by
hoth sides as a compromise. The
carpenters had demanded a' sliding
scale of 70 cents for the first year,
dating from -May 31. It provides for
72' cents for the second, and 75 cents
for the third. The men previous to
the strike had been paid 65 cents an

The various committees who are
working diligently on behalf of the
prospective patriotic carnival met in
the Council Chambers on Tuesday
evening, with Mayor Uphill presiding.
In view of the intimation that Wednesday, August 4 th, is to be celebrated
all over the British Empire as making
the First Anniversary ofthe war, it
was decided that this could be no
more fittingly observed than ibyj holding the projected carnival oa. that
day, instead of on July 21st, &s at

matters were "brought up for discussion, but before definite action tnereon
should be taken it was deemed advis-

F. IC. Lawe reported that he had interviewed the different musical organizations, but now it, would be necessary to see them again owing to the
change ot date. He also asked that
an additional committee, to he known
as a Construction Committee, should
be appointed. Motion was made and
passed accordingly, and a number of

On Thursday evening the members
of Excelsior Band, wives, children and
invited guests, sat down to a very
sumptuous repast in the dining room
of tlie King's Hotel, given ia honor of
Mr. James Pawley, the coraetist, who
was severing his connection with the
band because of departure for the old
country. After the 90 odd diners had
completed the knife, fork and spoon
activities, the tables were cleared.
William Dickenson acted as chairman, and after several speeches suitable to the occasion; all paying tribute
to the musical and personal qualifications of the departing, bandsman, had
been delivered by Messrs. H. Haigb,
11. Martin, T. Biggs, R. Johnstone and
others, Sir. Wm. Mills was called upon
to make the presentation, consisting of
a gold fob locket, suitably engraved.
This William did in fitting language,
to which the recipient suitably replied.
This pleasing feature concluded, the
room was cleared of tables and chairs
und to the strains of sweet music
waltzes, two-steps and other dances
were trippingly executed for several
hours, and Friday morning was ushered in before the celebration reached
its close.

more drifted in later, but those who'
did attend were treated to a most interesting lecture dealing with various
phases of the labor -movement.
The Chairman, In his introductory
remarks expressed regrets at the
small attendance, doubtless diue to
the other attractions cabling away
those who would ordinarily be interested in that which affects their own
Jlr. Watters, upon stepping to the
front stated that it was now over four
years since he had last had the opportunity of addressing a Fernie audience,
and whilst he would hare liked to
have seen more present, nevertheless
it were better to have a small gather-
ing of men.and women of a purposeful type than an assembly of large
proportions lacking definiteness.
The speaker then, in plain, simple
and convincing language, showed the
inevitability of organization, and using as an illustration a machine shop,
pointed out the .reception which an
employer would give to a solitary individual asking for a decrease of hours,
regarding the request as either the
height of impertinence, or the unreasonable demand of a dangerous agita-4
tor. But somewhat different treatment would be accorded a request
made by the entire working force for
better conditions, and the employer
would doubtless hesitate before discharging all his men.
Following along these lines, the
speaker then extended the sphere of
collective action shewing that as the
individual Is forced by circumstances
to co-operate with his fellows in a
craft so in like manner, because of
the inter-relations existing throughout
the industrial world the days of the
individual craft have given way to the
federated organization.

Industrial matters were concerned, In
legislative questions the A. F. of L.,
rs can be readily understood, must
limit Its operations to the United States, hence the need olf a body like the
Dominion Trades and Labor Congress
to look after parliamentary work on
this side of tho line. Whilst the activities of the Congress tn aiding ln
the passing of laws for the workers'
Interests may not be particularly noticeable ln the Increase of such statutes, nevertheless there were a number
of laws now operative that would have
made labor's road a still more rocky-
one to travel had it not, been for tho
amendments and omissions effected through the Instrumentality of thfl
Dominion Trades nnd Lnbor Congress.
The speaker quoted spvernl Instinc-
os in corroboration of theie assertions,

fhe United States, which could have
been interpreted to moan an Individual's affiliation with an International
organization was a criminal act under

intended to apply to trade unions. The
representatives of the Congress insistently urged that if such were the
case then the ques.ion could !>e definitely settled by the introduction of
the i-iause stating specifically that it
was not applicable to trade unions,
and as lerters'from all over the Dominion had been pouring in from labor
organizations to their respective parliamentary representatives regarding
the matter, the clause whereby the
acts of trade unionists were protected
when fighting for belter living conditions from being construed to be aot*
in restraint of trade was somewhat
reluctantly complied with. Other Instances of a similar character were
Some sidelights were thrown upon
the doings of the Canadian Manufacturers Association, and with what patriotic fervor they urge upon the workers not to have any associations with
those "wicked Yankees," but to form
national bodies aud thus keep their
hard-earned money at home. Such
arguments, the speaker said, were of
little force wben it was an irrefutable
fact that could be readily substantiated by any desirous of making a
thorough Investigation lhat for every
dollar contributed by Canadians to
international organizations with bead-
quarters In the* United States, three
dollars had come into Canada for the
purpose of aiding their fellow-workers
in this Dominion to obtain a few more
crumbs from the employing class.

Some eifti'h phrases havo been so often used that
tliey are looked upon as self-evident truths. One
of these is. "The interests of Capital and Labor are
identical." The acceptance of tliis bv "so many
t:itisr have at least a semblance ol* correctness for
lis origin. Let us make a little study of it for the
purpose of shedding some light on the subject and
finding v.liat merit it possesses, also wherein it :s
When, to use common terminology, "times are
good,'* the Avorker has plenty to do and the factories are hives of industry; when ''times are bad"
there are more idle men than usual and tlie Avhirr
of machinery has ceased- Such being the ease,
the conclusion is reached that "The interests of
Capital ond Labor are identical." We might para-
phase the sentence and make it read, "The interest of tlie Capitalist iu the laborer exists onlv so
Jong as he ean make profit out of him," and Ave do
not think many will attempt to refute the statement, yet unless they do the acceptance carries wiih
it a disavoAval of the identity of interest sophistry.
If a Avorkman is out of a job it is to his interest
lo ger employment so that he may secure the means
of a livelihood; it is also to the employer's interest
to hire the- man if by so doing he may obtain profit
thereby, bul if lie does not. then he has no interest
whatever in the man.
The interest of the Avorker begins and ends with
the job. The interest of the capitalist begins and
ends with the profit that will accrue to him.
We know that some may take exceptions to this
bald statement, but Ave nre dealing with the question i .1 masse and not in isolated instances, lt is
true 'here are a fow cases where an employer ir.ay

We have said it over and over ,3 pain that this
unemployment evil may vary from time in intensity, but its disappearance cau only be effected with
the inauguration of a system of society wherein
tlie exploitation of labor is eliminated and in its
stead the affairs of the human family are admin-
istered for the Avell-being of every unit thereof, and
not as it is today, the despoilation of the many to
the material advantage of the feAV.
These and similar statements have been repeatedly made by publications printed in behalf of the
worker, and yet candor compels us to admit their
absorption by the individuals mostly affected is
exceedingly sIoav. We do not say to the worker:
Hear Avhat Ave have to say and accept, but on the
contrary Ave urge that no matter by Avhom statements may be made, examine them closely and
iiig<>ht them carefully ere they are SAvalloAved.

outside of business hours, but these rare eases, re-
ini.'iisi ent of a bygone age, have for all practical
purposes disappeared in this age of gigantic industrial establishments. The mistake that is made is
the misinterpretation of terms.
Thc worker's interests He in getting thc biggest
possible returns for the salo of his only commodity;
the employer's por contra in paying the lowest figure to the etui that he may best subserve his interests—the acquisition of profit.
No more concrete evidence of the falsity of the

od than that ko plainly shown hy the oxistonoo of a
union, thus connoting that their interests arc nn-
latfonistie, otherwise thore would bc no necessity
for ii body of men to join forces for the simple reason that if this erroneously accepted statement
were fundamentally sound, nn individual Avorker
as a unit would lie accorded the same consideration hy liis employer as is accorded to the collective
bargainors. We have said thnt the inaccurate interpretation of words ttWen rise to these seeming
truths, and having, ns wc think, conclitHivnly prov-

July 2nd, 1915
To the Officers and Members of Provincial .Federations of Labor, Trades
and Labor Councils, National grades
Unions, Federal Labor Unions, and
International Local Trades Unions,
iu the Dominion of Canada, Greeting:
FelWw Labor Unionists and Brothers:
'lhe  Thirty-first annual  session of
the -Trades  and  Labor  Congress  of
Canada will convene   in   the   Labor
Temple Building, City of Vancouver,
Province of British Columbia, beginning   at   10   o'clock Monday morning,
September 20th, 1915,  and  will continue in session from day to day until
the business of Convention has been
The annual meeting of the Congress,
held last year in the City of St. John,
N.B., can be considered as one of the
most successful in the history of its
career. It was in the centre of the
Maritime Provinces and afforded opportunities for those who live along
the Atlantic coast to become better acquainted with tihe' progress and work
of the Congress. This year it is the
turn of the Pacific coast and, consequently, the City of Vancouver, B.C.,
has been selected as the meeting place
for the convention of 1915. Thus in
the two years the labor interests at
the two extremities of the Dominion
find ventilation for their requirements
and interests through the ever expand-
Congress of Canada.
The particular attention of affiliated organizations is called to Article
IH., 'Section 2, governing the introduction of Resolutions, which reads:—
"Sec. 2. That all resolutions for
tho consideration of the Congress
shall be received by the Secretary-
Treasurer not later than ten days
prior to the opening of the Convention,
tho same to be printed and issued at
tlio opening session of the Congress.
Resolutions submitted contrary to this
section can only be introduced and
dealt with by the Congress, on a two-
thirds vote of the delegates present.
The Executive shall appoint a committee on Resolutions from the Cre-
dentialed Delegates and said Committee shall meet at least one day
prior to the opening of the Convention for the purpose of considering all
business submitted to them."
The forthcoming Convention will be
perhaps the most important ln the history of the Congress. Many legislative questions of vital Interest to labor
In Canada will -be discussed and de
clsions arrived  at.     In addition  a
other than those engaged in military service could
not logically be refused—i- e., railroad employees,
travelling salesmen and others whose daily voea-
tions necessitated their absence from home on election day.
An opportunity to test the measure avur looked
forward to with considerable interest, but now.
when its applicability eould be demonstrated in the
forthcoming plebiscite in the province of Alberta
on the Liquor Question, Premier Sifton snid he did
not consider thnt the government had poAA'er, This
Avas in response to a petition from over four thousand sldiers encamped ot the Snrcee Reserve near
We are not primarily Interested in the question
because of either the personnel or object for which
the vote 'in to be used, but on account of the deprivation of the privilege to which these citizens were
supposedly legnlly entitled.
Whothor the "wets" or "drys" would have n
majority among the temporary dwellers in the
Snrcee Cnmp is not the issue with m at nil, bnt by
Avhat process of reasoning the conclusion hns been
reached that citizens for whose benefit this revolutionary (!) legislation had been placed upon the
statute Hooks of the Dominion should not be allowed to exercise their suffrage rights.
It is sincerely to be hoped that Premier Sifton"
will reconsider the question in order that the people
of Cnniida may note the effect of this legislative in-
While Germany has been the largest (producer in the world of by-products from coke and gas works, these
industries have become even more important since the outbreak of the war.
In Germany suoh by-products as benzol and tar oil replace gasoline, the
importation of which has ceased, and
sulphate of ammonia is taking the
place of Chili saltpetre, to be used as
fertilizer and In the manufacture ot
To obtain sufficient by-products, the
coke production has beeu increased.
The German government buildings
and railways, etc., are now obliged to
use coke, together with fuel of other
kinds, and orders have been issued
regulating the proportion of coke to be
used in the mixture.
The principal coal gas residuals recovered are tar, naphthalene, syano-
gen, ammonia and, in the case of coke-
oven gas, also benzol.
Tar.—'The tar produced from coal
gas is one of the chief -residuals. It
finds its most important application in
the arts, where it forms the basis ot
aniline colour production; 392 different colours and shades are listed as
made from tar. These are produced
by distilling the tar and, after a certain temperature has ibeen reached,
water-like oil ls secured. This oil
forms the base of all the beautiful co.,1
tai  colours.
Carbolic acid, naphthalene, anthracene, and benzol are also produced in
like manner, and each of these ln turn
produces a long series of other products. Alarizarin, a valuable coloring matter which forms the base "of
artificial indigo, is produced by treating anthracene.
In 1913, Germany exported coal-tar
dyestuffs worth over $55,000,000 (equivalent to 40 per cent ot the mineral
production of Canada.) During the
same year, the gross value of by-products (estimating dyestuffs, etc., in
the form of crude Intermediate products) wasted, toy beehive coke ovens
in the United States amounted to over
$75,000,000. It, is probable that the
loss in Canada due to the use ot such
ovens, is greater in proportion than
that of the United States.—WJ.D.

arising out of the gigantic struggle In
Europe will face the delegates for consideration and decision. The industrial situation in Canada is much different at the time of Issuing this Call
tban when our last Convention was
held. At this Convention policies of
great moment to the working class in
! Canada will have to be outllntu.
Among the -many subjecti for cmsla-
oration which need our continued attention are:
1. The conditions arising from Unemployment in the Industrial centers
In Canada.
2. Donytn-lon and Provincial Legislation affecting labor Interests.
3. Enforcement of the misrepresentation and monetary clauses of the
Immigration Laws all the year round.
4. Tbe proposed 8-hour tabor £11],
5. Workmen's Compensation Acts
In vsrious Provinces.
6. Amendments to the Industrial
Disputes and Investigation Act.
7. Fortnightly payment of vases on
all rallwayj.
8. Proposed amendments to Dominion Elections Act, including:
(a) Abolition of the $200 deposit
now exacted:
(b) The omklug diction iny & public holiday.
9. Old Age Pensions and all the
Issues that are therewith connected.
Repeatedly th« attention of organised labor has been drawn to tbe fact
that year by year the opponents of tabor In this Dominion Increase steadily
tbeir efforts. Labor must put forth
greater efforts not only to conserve
what has already been obtained, but
to obtain that ir-blcb Is desirable.

award to tbe Provinces of Alberta and
