Why The Returned Soldiers

The "$2,000 bonus" was in his opinion, the grand solution to the situation,
wliich resulted in the presentation of
the project to a general meeting of

Who Would Benefit?
2. Who will benefit? The forego,
ing paragraph has very largely covered
the ground, but further points are also
to ba considered. All men do not desire, nor are all men qualified by exper.
lence'and physical capacity to take up
farming as a future life occupation
In fact it is only a small percentage
of soldiers who will actually become
farmers, and the remainder are as
surely entitled to a corresponding
"settlement scheme," which will meet
their particular abilities and nspira-4

discharged fnr good; but the process
referred to undoubtedly built up the
grand total .'of 550,000. It is generally
conceded, therefore, that not more
than 500,000 payments of bonuses
would-have to be provided for, and the

Where it's to Come From
4. We are then brought down to
the greatest question of all: "Where
is the money to come from?"
To finance such a huge proposition
is a'truly staggering task, as few
amongst us have the faintest idea what
such a colossal sum of money means.
But these are the days of millions and
billions. During the war we became
accustomed to hear of "millions of
men," "billions of dollars" and so
forth, so that the terror of these
phrases passes into insignificance
from our impossibility to grasp what
such stupendous figures actually
meant. For instance, the national debt
bf Canada at the outbreak of the war
is stated to have been $300,000,000,
which amount was regarded with
alarm in the country.
Since that time war has added its
toll by $1,300,000,000, and it will take a
further expenditure of $500,000,000 to
clean up the expenditures of the war.
In other words the grand total ot the
national debt of Canada stands today
at $2,100,000,000.   Confronted by these
Union Principles Will Govern District
181:v Its Rejection of Order 124-Statement
Made By President Christophers-General
Strike Ballots To Be Returned Next Week
which ln this article it s my desire to • iny tho mon hav4J had everything pro-
meet and answer.   The following four i v,ded for lhem> but upon their return ;<
Th9 District Ledger has secured from President Christophers a
clear statement regarding the situation which has arisen in District
18 in connection with Order No. 124 of.the Director of Coal Operations. It is not .in accordance with precedent for the membership
and the public lis well to be so fully acquainted tyith.all the facts
but District IS has entered upon new days. There was a time when
District IS'took its cue from the Indianapolis methods and left all
negotiations in the hands of the officials and treated, the rank and
file as a body lacking in intelligence. Today the rank and fiile is in
^he saddle and the overwhelming vote they cast in favor of the ONE
BIG UNION shows that hereafter an injury to orte is to be the'Jon-
cent of all and that dealings with coal operators or. governments
must be conducted in the open with all the cards on the table.
• It is true that Order 124 affects only a few hundred members in
reducing their wages but the ONE BIG UNION idea is not the pro-
tection only of the majority. It is further true that Order Np. "124
is a direct application of arbitrary and compulsory arbitration, endorsed by the minister of labor in his refusal to consent to an investigation or to allow the miners' side of the case to be presented.
No amount of camouflage can rid this important fact from an intelligent rank arid file. ,.-'..'
The Director of Coal Operators and the Labor Department have

in the hopes that peace would be signed in tlie near future, and in
consequence the following telegram was sent to Mr. Armstrong;
May Gth, mil).
" W. II. Armstrong,
815 Bower Bldg, Vancouver, B.C.
"Unless you can assure me by noon tomorrow that the
investigation asked for will be held, I shall summon the policy Committee for the purpose of calling a general strike.
In event of a general strike being declared we shall draw
all fires in all mines throughout the district."
(Signed) P. M. Christophers.
This wire was sent because we considered that a climax had been
reached in the dispute, and though the Director could name any date
he might see fit to- hold an enquiry, unless we were assured of an enquiry being held, the strength of the organization would be thrown
away in a series of small isolated strikes'"'which would render the
organization impotent in the near future.
In reply to this wire the following was received from Mr. Armstrong:
Vancouver, B.C., May Gth.
P. M. Christophers,
St. Regis Hotel, Calgary.
"Have wired your demands to the Minister of Labor
and have asked him to wire reply to Mr.■ Harrison."

Brazen Conspiracy to Provoke Riots by Use oj
Red Flag to Boost False Photo-Play Misrepresenting Socialism is Exposed-*-Managers
of Movie Shows Instructed to Place Red
Flags at Conspicuous Places and to Hire
Soldiers to Tear Them Down
(From The Appeal to Reason)
Lies for. prolit!    Sensationalism for profit!    Mob violence for
profit!    These might 'furnish appropriate sub-titles for this article.
For overwhelming evidence is before us that the reactionary inter-
or get someone to do it for you, you can run for a couple of weeks in the
local dally, without ever suggesting that the discussion has any advertising
"Bolshevism is the question of the hour, 'it has spread, to every town
and village.     In some places Us adherents do not dare openly discuss the
ests, in their.desperate efforts to prevent social justice, propose toi matter, but they may have the courage to engage in an anonymous discus

liberate und*d;uimahle falsehood, sensationalism and excitation    to
mob violence. The* purpose i.s to link .Bolshevism and Socialism together in the most* odious and repulsive form, and to stir up all the
vicious passions of the .unthinking populace' against these artificial
Fran several widely different sources we have had brought
forcibly to our attention the past few days how extensively the forces
of reaction liave planned, to operate. The program is outlined in cold
print, where the common people ofthe nation would perhaps never
see it; but those who read the Appeal will be made aware of this reactionary conspiracy, because the Appeal makes it a business to find
out such things and expose them fully.
The Moving Picture World is our first exhibit in the exposure of
the lying agencies of capitalism. This is a professional and trade
journal that, circulates, as its title suggests, in the moving picture
world. In an issue of the Moving Picture World that has just appeared on the newsstands, confidential advice.is given to moving picture managers how to ''work up" excitement and interest over a
photo-play that i.s soon to be Hashed on the movie screens of the
country—a play lhat purports to "'show up" Bolshevism and Socialism, picturing tiie Socialists in a hideous and horrible light as veritable devils capable of the darkest deeds. This photo-play, is to be
a masterpiece of mendacity, it will not represent aetual events or
conditions. Xo real scenes of Bolshevik or Socialist activity will be
shown. Tlie whole rotten story is simply the envenomed product of
the wild, unfettered imagination of a Socialist hater, Thomas Dixon,
the preaeher-noveHst.who has as little regard for the truth as any
man Jiving in these states. The photo-play is based upon this lurid
and libelous novel. "Comrades." which many of our readers may
have seen. It deals with an imaginary colony established by,Socialists, and portrays all sorts of imaginary wickedness and perveision
supposed to be characteristic of Socialism. The scenes for this play
are to be arranged on the Florida coast.
Tliis play lias two Oobjeets; to create prejudice and passionate
no lack of opponents in the larger towns.     Save all of the clippings for
lobby work when your open campaign starts.
"You can get the ministers to take this question up. The subject, is
timely and most ministers know that a Avell.advertised topic will draw the
crowds. Announce the sermon on your screen for threo or four days in advance.
"This can ho done before you start your campaign or perhaps the min.
ister will be willing to preach on the topic the Sunday before your opening,
in which case take the advertising for the church directly into your house
advertising. Have a lobby frame announcing that the Rev. John Blank will
preach on this powerful play at the Kirst Christian Church.
"If you have any factories in town do not overlook the suggestion at
the top of page nine of the press book. There is not a factory owner who
is not at least secretly afraid of the growth of Bolshevism, and he has cause
for fear. Go to him with the private viewing or even with a good talk on
the film and he will buy blocks of seats for his employees and their families."
The final touches is a revelation of. the uses to which this false
photo-play will be put. There is no doubt that the factory owner will
be the best source of revenue. He is always interested in any brand
of mental chloroform for his workers. It is certain that if the movie
manager goes to him "with the private viewing or even'with a
good talk on the film, he will buy blocks of seats for his employes
and their families." Surely he wouldn't miss such a grand-chance
to humbug his wage slaves. He needs such things in his business. He
will be the most effective booster for the picture. If it should be—
this is perhaps a wild supposition, but we use it for an illustration—
if it should be that the local ministers or the local press prove recalcitrant and unwilling to join in the advertising campaign, a word
from the factory owner who contributes to the church collections
and controls newspaper advertising will undoubtedly be,more than
sufficient to remove any such possible, though not probable: obstacles.
Depend upon it, the factory owner will be on the job. Ite. may even
consent to bear the whole expense, including the putting up of flags
and the hiring of soldiers to tear them down. Perhaps it would be
too much to ask "him to pay the funeral expenses of any chance victims of mob violence; this last item of expenditure would not be.ne-
halred against, Socialism among the millions of movie fans throughout
the country—that is, among the masses of the plain people—and* to
make profits for the producers of the play and the'managers' of moving picture houses that display it. To accomplish these two objects,
to debauch the public mind and to fill their pockets with the plethoric
fees of falsehood, this unscrupulous reactionary crew will, stop at
nothing. The 31 o,vmg Picture World j'1 tips off" movie managers,
tells uiiftifJiow to engin£er*an unique advertising e.«inp;ygp. *y    "' .
'fhe big idea is to get the whole community stirred up—get the
people excited, get tliem to arguing, get their passions aroused, play
upon their prejudice and hate. Curiously enough (but not so curious
when you reflect upon it) the ministers iu each community are to be
induced to pause in their preachments of the Christian gospel of good
will among men that tliey may help to further this hate campaign.
I'm- weral weeks in advance of the appearance of this anti-Bolshevik.
anti-SneJnJist play lhe ministers will be asked to preach sermons de-
no'iiieing all things socialistic and radical.- They will be requested to
use all their peculiar genius for portraying the horrors of hell, in portraying the bonus of Socialism.

Every reader of the Appeal should watch for this play's appearance in your town. You ean tell several weeks in advance when it is
due to appear, because you have the "dope" on the preliminary advertising Oitmpuign that will be pulled off. When the ministers begin
to*aim.their poisoned arrows of vituperation <\t Sot^alipn, wfoen the
'focal papers begin fo gnu -space' to anti-Socialist tirades, when red
flags begin to appear around the town or eity and indignant soldiers
tear them down and somebody starts a scrap and thc local papers
point to the treason of the "damned" Socialists, you'll know by these
signs that Thomas Dixon's great flim-fiam picture is coming. Show
your friends and neighbors this article. See that the people'' in
your community understand this play nnd the happenings that unplanned to precede its appearance. You can help to destroy the effectiveness of this malicious, lying attack upon Social ism. When you
explain this play to your fellow workers, they may md be so readily
Inveigled into paying a dime to see it.
The article in the Moving Picture World is not the only evidence
of the campaign of violence and falsehood    that is   being   directed I'
against the Socialists,   You must bear in mind, that th" Socialists, who
used lo be called "anarchists," arc now called "ISolshevists" instead.!
I'.y spreading the most lurid lies about 'Bolshevism,    aiid    then by \
branding the Socialists as Bolshevists, the agents of reaction hope toj
frighten the people into rejecting all radical ideas.   They also hope to j
intimate the Socialists into silence and inactivity    by    throalenit.g
them with slaughter and assassination.   There is plainly a deliberate.!
well-plauned movement on foot to    encourage    wholesale    vink-.ice j
against all citizens who dare to condemn the crimes of eapiiuH-on aud *
to espouse openly the cause of individual liberty.   You have read tin- j
Hchemo of the moving picture magnates.   Xow read this violent in-1
j ceiidinry editorial taken from the 1'nragould (Aiki, lmil\ Pm s. i'lbu *

used by hellish Huns. They are spies within our own borders. We permit
them to learn our methods and to understand our ideals, and they do all
within their power to turn the government over to anarchists and public
plunderers. Bolshevism, is being organized in Paragould TODAY. Shall it
spread, or shall the free men of the city, who have wives and daughters
whom they would protect—whose virtue they would not have peddled out in
order to make a holiday for ruffiianism and afford the blacklegs nine hours
of sensual satisfaction each week—rise up in sufficient force to blot out the
contagion before it gets a footing?
It is timely to again suggest that General Lloyd England's request for
the creation or rifle clubs in all of the counties of the state is a pertinent one.
The finest method of dealing with Bolshevism, aside from the sawed.off shot,
gun, which is effective at close range, is the machine gun or the new Springfield. There are several hundred boys in the county now, or soon will be,
who are rather expert with these instruments of modern civilization, and, to
uso an expression of Arthur Guy Empey's, would delight in 'treating 'em
rough.' If there is one thing more than another that a returned soldier de.
lights in, it is pumping steel.jacketced bullets at a Bolshevist. Hunting
Germans is a mild form of pastime, but pattering the Bolls is real pleasure.
Dozens of Faragouldians would take advantage of the very first opportunity
to join "a rifle club if they felt the time would ever come for a brush wlfti
"No man's daughter or wife i.s safe so long as even the seeds of Bol.
shevism are permitted to be sown. We are all contemptible cowards so
long as we permit this form of governmental mania to even be whispered,
much less talked boldly in public places. The citizen who has no more self,
respect them to stand on the street corner and allow these Bullshevists to
uphold the doctrine.-' Lenine and Trotsky is himself an arrant shirker, and
should also be classed either as a moral and physical weakling, a lunatic o-
an enemy to the U. S. A..     „     ■■
"Let's get astride our energy, shift our aggressiveness to high gear and
start the rifle club to work. The first man who detects a real dyed-tn.the.
wool Bolshevist engaged in the dissemination of propaganda and fails to
call hi mto time should be adjudged guilty of treason and dealt with, while
lhe said Bolshevist should be made to face a firing squad at forty paces.
This is no time to light matche sand Imagine, just for the sake of argument,
that patriotic wluds will blow out the flames before they spread to your
neighbor's haystack. Men who have families and who love their homes;
men who appreciate the blessings of free citizenship under the flag of the
greatest republic on the face of the earth, should stop and consider these
facts, and try to determine in his own mind just how far he could be sure of
shooting out the black in the eyes of a Bolshevist. •
"Let the slogan be:    "Treat 'Em Ro\igh."
The Paragould paper and its editor arc not important except as
they influence their immediate community and are typical of a very
general attitude revealed in a considerable portion of the press. Is
such an attitude typical! Let our readers all over the United
State? note the expressions of the capitalist press, and judge for
themselves. .True,-.ordinarily thc purpose is not so plainly stated as
in this Arkansas paper. Thc Arkansas editor blurts out his incendiary intent; other editors, more skilled in the art of words, resort
to ingenious innuendo and efficient suggestion. But one and all
strive to create an ignorant prejudice, an unreasoning hatred against
Socialism and all radical movements which they lump together under
the label of Bolshevism. One and all denounce Socialism and put
forth covert though.easily understood intimations that stern measures are required to suppress the "Bolshevists." The Appeal makes
the solemn and deliberate charge that the tone of a very large and
viciously influential portion of the American press is calculated to
foster violence against Socialists and to make utterly impossible a
fair and reasoned discussion and settlement, through lawful and
peaceable political channels, of the great social problems that press

Brazen Conspiracy To Provoke Riots By Red Flag
(Continued from Page Two)
it persists in flaunting its false face. The Arkansas editor greedily
seizes upon it to lend spice to his tirade. Don't think that this lie is
confined to circulation by Arkansas editors, however. It is still being published in alleged respectable journals, although it has been
many times crushingly refuted. The Saturday Evening Post has an
article by Alfred Noyes, the English poet, in which this lie is seriously repeated and said to be based upon "authenticated reports."
The Saturday Evening Post has a great reputation as a conservative
journal,' and it may be presumed that its editor knows something
about the importance of accuracy in honest journalism. We can only
assume that he is inconceivably careless in what he permits to appear in the pages of the Post, or that he wittingly connives at the
publication of falsehoods. In another article in the same issue of the
Post—an article on the general strike in Seattle in January of this
year—we find another rid'iculous lie. This article speaks! of tho
Seattle general strike being planned "during those three overheated
days wherein Lenine and Trotzky tarried in the city's midst, en
route to Russia." Now the editor of the Saturday Evening Post, Mr.
George Horace Lorimer, should know well enough that neither
Lenine nor Trotzky was ever in the city of Seattle, and could not have
planned any general strike there. The editor of the Post should know
that Lenine never was as far west as Chicago even, and that he left
America for Russia from the port of New York City, and that he
was held up at Halifax by the British authorities until President Wilson, at the request of Kerensky, asked that he be permitted to proceed to Russia. These facts are well known to many persons, yet the
Saturday Evening Post ignores them. Really, there is no mouthpiece
of the present order, it seems, that will hesitate to stoop to the
meanest lie to discredit Socialism.
Violence everywhere is being urged or used, not by the Socialists,
not by those who advocate a change in the industrial system, but by
the reactionaries, by those who are determined to preserve the present industrial system at all cost. The reactionaries talk loud about
respecting law and order, yet they are the very first, to break the
law and disturb order when it serves their bigoted purpose. The Industrial Workers of the World come to Sioux City, Iowa, to hold a
convention, and the mayor of the city, elected by the labor union men.
extends them a welcome and gives them an address in which he counsels fairness to all sides and informs them that as long as they respect
the laws and keep the peace they can have the comon right of free
speech. The mayor of Sioux City spoke in the name of the law, he
was upholding the law, yet the reactionary elements of the city
started trouble—they denounced the mayor publicly, the sheriff of
the county joined in the attack upon the mayor and with a hundred
and fifty deputies at his back marched to the LAV. W. headquarters
and closed the place. Here is defiance of the law, here is violation of
ordor, not from the labor agitators, but from so-called "respectable'*
citizens. At the same time Wm. Z. Foster, an organizer for the
American Federation of Labor, writes in the labor press that in
Pennsylvania towns dominated by the influence of the Steel Trust
organizers for the American Federation are, not-permitted to carry,
on their work or to hold meetings. '
It is plain that thc policy of violent antagonism and suppression
is being carried out against all organizations that in any way repre
"setrrthT^emMU"foFa~newTocial oT3?rr^*TOionism7Hoeialism, Bolshevism." are made a combined target for calumny and even open
force. The press supports these lawless manifestations of reaction,
gleefully gives generous space to every lie against labor, and simultaneously suppresses the truth about the revolutionary happenings
that are the consuming interest of the intelligent world today. Upton Sinclair, on another page of this issue of the Appeal, tells now
the Los Angeles capitalist press suppresses the truth. The press in
every other eity is of similar caliber and contents. Columns for
buncombe, but net one inch for truth—such is the fitting motto of the
capitalist press.
Note well this fact: Violence is being openly advocated against
Socialists, every defaming canard that the slimy mind of slander can
invent is being industriously spread abroad, the organization of ritle
clubs is being counseled, managers of moving picture shows are
advised to put tip red flags and hire men in the uniform of the United
States army to tear them down, activities and agitations that may
conceivably culminate in'mob violence are being carried on without
.concealment, and the United States government, the state govern-
incntR, the county government*, the city governments, every official
down to the township road overseer and the village dog catcher,
maintains an absolute silence nnd a supine attitude in face of these in
cendiary efforts. Yet let a Socialist or labor paper utter the faintest
whisper of cirticism against any official of the government, against
any condition prevailing in our society, and see how snaringly it is
pounced upon. The Appeal says plainly—and it' says it for all to
heed and remember—that $: violence occurs in any American community, the reactionary upholders of ■ the present order will be responsible. The Socialists are peaceful propagandists. They have a
right to carry oh their propaganda in this country. Upon the heads
of those wlio would forcibly suppress them, without semblance of law,
let the condemnation for any possible future violence wholly rest,

Industrial Organization of Labor
In Great Britain
The following extracts are taken from an article by Leland Olds?
appearing in the April 19 number of "The Nation," New York. We
especially commend this article to the attention of those of our opponents who have contended that the proposal to form One Big Union
of all wage-earners, organized along the lines of industry instead of
craft, is merely the product of certain iresponsible radicals in Western Canada, and that the proposal is unworkable, and will only result
in disrupting the trade union movement, etc., etc.
Our answer has been that the new form of organization is the result of the changing methods of production in industry, that the
craft form of organization is no longer able to obtain for the workers
those improvements in their material conditions necessary for their
existence and well-being, and that the same changes in the methods
of production that compelled the 250 trade union delegates at the Calgary Convention to adopt a new line of action, are taking place all
over the world. However, we will let the following article on conditions in Great Britain speak for itself. We only regret that lack of
space prevents us from coupling up with the following article a
statement of the development of industrial unionism in Australia,
where the One Big Union is definitely established.
(By Leland Olds).
In order to see the British industrial situation in its true perspective, we must consider the Labor movement in England with references to its-effect upon modern machine production. From this point
of view there can be no doubt that it had been a real burden upon industry. Organized before the automatic machine began the reduction of all factory labor to a single semi-skilled level, the craft unions
had for years been enforcing certain rules which held up normal advance of modern machine production. The labor movement had, in
fact, served to protect tlie skilled worker against this very levelling
process; it had maintained him in what might be termed a privileged
position. By the rules of these skilled-trade organizations the introduction of certain automatic machines was forbidden, modern efficiency methods were prohibited, a limit to tho-production •-of-t.liq.
dividual Worker was tacitly admitted, and certain processes were reserved for the Skilled workers. In short, trade unionism in England
aimed primarily at guaranteeing the skilled worker a position at fair
terms against the competition of the unskilled worker as the mere
tender of a high-speed automatic machine. Only in the great organizations composing the Triple Alliance could one.,find, anything approaching industrial unionism.
But the English industrial situation prior to the war was really
out of date. High-speed modern industry was marching on, and the
productivity of British labor was falling far behind that of such nations as Germany and the United States.
Government Intervention
The war, with its tremendous appetite for the products of great
munition plants, forced the issue. It offered the employing class tx
plausible excuse for bringing Knglish industry up to date. Under the
guise of patriotism the Employers' Association called upon the trade
unions to surrender all the concessions which had been forced from
employers hy a generation of hard-driven bargains. Both sides,
knew that this wonld be n dangerous blow to the craft-union movement, that it would cause the skilled worker to sink hack into the
great sea of the unprivileged, and unprotected proletariat. As a result, the employers were unable Jo accomplish their purpose except
through the agency of the Government. The Committee on Production, appointed for this purpose, reported that the national emergency required the giving up by labor of its right to strike, of its
right to oppose the introduction of the latest efficiency machines and
methods, and of its right to maintain lines of demarcation between
various groups of workers. The trade-union executives had agreed
to co-operate with the Government, in the conduct of the war; they
were, therefore, bound to accept these conditions.
Old Trade-Union Effectiveness Destroyed
There was a semblance of voluntary sacrifice for the good of the
nation in the Treasury Agreement of March, 1915; but the real objects were obtained by the Munitions Act, through which the conditions recommended by the Employers' Association, and htter by the
Committee on Production, were given the force of the law. Violation
of any of these new conditions became a penal offence, apd special
tribunals were constituted to try cases under the act; violation of
factory rules likewise became a penal offence; and finally the right
of the worker to move freely from one employer to another was curtailed. In short, the effectiveness of the old trade-union organization
had been destroyed; the modern machine process with its homogenous proletariat was advancing. It is true that the Government promised the restoration of these privileges after the war; but only the
blind failed to see that once British industry had been brought into
line with the tendencies of world industry, it could not be turned
Organization Along Industrial Lines
The employers had thus secured the right to press labor to the
limit of production. Henceforth there would be but one class of
general factory labor, machine tenders, to be used as instruments of
the community. A great supply of such labor would exist after the
war—a sure guarantee of cheap production.
The change must have come inevitably in the course of years,
for the automatic machine will not be gainsaid. The day of the great
machine proletariat is coming. But the war and the employers' war
legislation have hastened the process in England. The Munitions
Act, dubbed the "Slave Act" by British workers, marks not only the
decline of British trade unionism, but also the beginning of new organization along industrial lines.
The Shop Steward
The shop committees have begun a new organization of labor.
The shop steward had been a minor official of the craft organization,
attending simply to petty adjustments between members of his craft
and the shop foreman. But a committee of shop stewards ceased to
be a craft organization, and a delegated works committee of these
shop stewards represented many crafts in a given industry. Here
was the neucleus of a new industrial organization. The workers no
longer looked ao the trade-union executives to attend to tlieir interests. Several successful strikes were organized and managed by
these new committees .of shop stewards. Shop committees were organized—with telegraphic code and a corps of motor despatch riders,
Employers, trade union executives and the Government all recognized the menace, and presented a united front against this unauthorized movement. A committee was arrested and deported, but labor was
merely antagonized, and the new organization was copied widely
throughout England.
Today this new industrial unity persists in lart?e"distiicts^£Vfli:
nationally. It is still opposed by the national trade-union executives,
but is still able to call large strikes in spite of this opposition.
Direct industrial action is gaining converts as the only means by
which the workera can achieve their immediate aims.

The Committee on Tariffs and Taxation of the National Association of Cotton Manufacturers announces a new menace to the well-
being of the people of the United States. Japan is developing cotton
manufacturing to an extent that threatens to cut under American
competition. It is, therefore, necessary, for the United States to
come back with some kind of economic retaliation.
Japan "promises at no distant date to become a ner ions competitor of American mills, not only in foreign fields, but in our home markets." The Ways and Means Committee of the House will, therefore,
be asked to see that "the interests of the textile industry" are properly safeguarded.
Japanese manufacturers are threatening American profits, Trade

the enormity of their demands when'
they are asking for a paltry two thou,

all in a successful endeavor to overthrow German militarism and "preserve Canada for the Canadians.'
In view of all these things why is
the Government of Canada going to the
wasteful ridiculous expense of estab.
lishing mounted police barracks all
over the country and especially in
those places where the workers' or.
gauizations have strength?
The District Ledger has nothing
against the men who make up the force
of the R. N: W. M. P. Like the rest of
us they want a "job" in order to live
and a position in the mounties carries
with it comfortable clothing and good
shelter and in such a job there is no
necessity of raising blisters on the
hands or having "cricks" .come into tho
hack; neither is there any tiresome
mental work or financial worries such

four weeks, working on an average
five days a week; counting Snuday, the
men are idle eight days in four weeks

Why Returned Soldiers
Shonld Get War Bonus
■■• Conclusion
The soldiers stand in the embarras-
ing position of creating a project under
■which they and soldiers dependents
are the proposed beneficiaries. The
redeeming feature, however, lies in the
fact that soldiers understand soldier
matters. So that harmonious action
•will be encouraged if they advocate
tlieir case before the people of Canada,
whom it was their privilege to defend
in the great war by saying to them:
"This $2,000 bonus will help me to
start life again in the way that I'want
sind not in the way that someone else
who does not understand me wishes
to force on me."
We have heard of remote Instances
of soldiers saying they "condemn such
a proposition as they did not go t'o the
war for money or for what they could
get out ()f it." There is no record of
a man expressing these sentiments
who returned his war service gratuity,
to the government or who gave to help
the widow and children of a dead comrade. Some of those who started to
oppose it at tho present time will be

question of the advisability of instituting a 44_hour week in Australia. It

tries, some mean^must be devised of
shortening the hours of labor as a
means to absorbing the workers thus
thrown out of work. Delegates to the
Trades Council in Victoria are at pres.
ent voting on the scheme, which will
be carried, and then the matter will be
referred to the other Australian States
in order to bring about a general agitation until the desired end is attained.

Workers Active In
Governor Flees—Street Car Men Win
Big Victory
(By W. Francis Ahem)
After a strike of eight weeks, the
Perth (Western Australia)'tramway
men have won a great victory Perfect solidarity was sustainod, and not
a wheel turnedon the street railways.
The men, on the conclusion of their
fight, marched back to the barns singing "The Red Flag" and other Labor
songs, carrying banners through the
streets. Prior to the strike, they were
the worst paid street car workers in
Australia—today they are ths oest
paid. Besides increases in wages,
there is no victimization, the union has
a say in the arrangements connected
with running the services which gives
the union the power to compel every
man to be a unionist; workers travel
to and from work free of charge; spec,

point nearest their homes. In addition

she asked Incredulously.
"The title and tbe estates meant

replied. "Aud If I bad taken them

be attempted to excuse a fault
She extended ber arms toward blm
across tbe body of tbe dend man and
took his bands In hers.
"And I would have thrown away a
love like tbnt!" she said.
The next niornlnR they set out upon
the short journey to Tarzan's cabin.
Four War.lri bore the body of tbe dead
Englishman. It bad been the ape-
man's suggestion that Clayton be buried beside the former Lord Grey stoke
near tbe edge of the Jungle against the
cabin tbat tbe older man bad built.
Jane Porter was glad that It was to
be so. and In her heart of hearts she
wondered at the marvelous Oneness of
character of this wondrous man, who,
though raised by brutes aud among
brutes, bad the true chivalry and tenderness which on" only associates witb
tbe refinements of tbe highest civilization.
They had prooeedwl some three miles
of tbe five that had separated them
from Tarzan's own beach when the
Waziri who were ahead stopped suddenly, pointing in amazement at a
strange figure approaching them along
the beach. It was a man with a shiny
silk bat, who walked slowly with bent
head and hauds clasped behind him
underneath the tails of his long black
At eight of blm Jane Porter uttered
a little cry of surprise and joy and ran
quickly ahead to meet him. At the
sound of her voice the old man looked
fronting him he, too, cried out la relief
and happiness. As Professor Archimedes Q. Porter folded his daughter In
bia arms tears st roamed down his
seamed old face, and it was several
minutes before lie could control himself sufficiently to speak.

could couvjpee blm tbat bis sorrow
bad not unbalanced bis niiud, for with
the otber members of the party ho had
been so thoroughly convinced that the
ape-man was dead It wax a problem
to reconcile tbe conviction with the
very lifelike appearance of Jane's "forest god." Tbe old man was deeply
touched at the news of Clayton's
"I cannot understand It" be said.
"M. Thuran assured us that Clayton
paaaed away many days ago."
•Thuran Is with you?" nuked Tartan.
"Yes. He bnt recently found us and
led ua to your cabin. We were camped
but a abort distance uurtb of It. Bless

"And surprised," commented Tartan.

It waa quickly explained, however,

lie saw the wisdom of ber appeal
and promised. A half hour Inter Ro-
Uolf and Tenningtou emerged from tbe
jungle, They were walking-side'by

the presence of strangers iu the camp,
lie saw tbe black warriors palavering
witb the sailors from the cruiser, and
then he saw a lithe, brown giant talking with I.leutenaut D'Arnot and Captain Dufranne.
••Who is that. I wonder," said Ten-
iilttgtou to Itokoflf, and as tbe Russian
raised his eyes and met those of tbe
ape-man full upou blm he staggered
and weut white.
"Saprlstl!" he cried, and before Tennington realised wbat be Intended he
bad thrown his gun to his shoulder
and, aiming point blank at Tarzan,
pulled the trigger. But the Englishman was close to him-so close tbat

And when tbey spoke of It to the

termination of a renin rka hte romance.
So the entire party assembled within
the little cabin and about the door to
witness the second ceremony that Professor Porter was to solemulze within
three daya.
D'Arnot was to be best man and
Hazel Strong bridesmaid until Tennington upset all the arrangements by
another of hts marvelous ••Ideas."
"If Miss Strong is agreeable," he,
said, taking the bridesmaid's hand In
his. "Hazel and I think it would be

Abe Got ths Worst of It
When Lincoln was a young lawyer
In Illinois he and a certain judge once
got to bantering one another about
trading horses, aud it was agreed tbat
the next morning at 9 o'clock they
should make a trade, the horses to be
unseen up to that hour and no backing out under a forfeiture of $25. At
the honr appointed the judge came up,
leading the sorriest looking specimen
of horse ever seen in those parts. In
a few minutes Mr. Lincoln was seen
approaching with a wooden sawhorse
on his shoulders.
Great were the shouts and laughter
of the crowd, and both were greatly

the judge's animal, set down bis saw-

Homes of Scottish
Lovers of Scotland, believers in
British justice, haters of oppression
and all who open-mi ndediy will con.
aider things as they are.will read
witb. more than passing Interest: the
following report from Lanarkshire,
Scotland, as published fn the Hamilton
Advertiser of March 22nd last:
The case for the miners was further
dsveloped before the Coal Commission on Saturday. Mr. John. Robertson, chairman or the Scottish* Unt
of Minn Workers, submitted figures
' show the dangerous nature of tbe miners' occupation, and drew a dismal
picture of the bousing
the mining districts.
'.Mr. Robertson said that during   the
last fifty years there    had been
i-reragt of 1100 persons    killed each
188,531 children born, 22,270 died before they reached the age ot 13
months. In iBIactyre the infantile
mortality was 143 per 1000; in Botk.
well. l-!6 per 1000; in Bellsbili, ]5G per
1000; and Holytown, 142 per 1000. It"
had been calculated that between
£30,000 and £40,000 had been spent
ou sanatoria buildings. The wi
(proceeding) said:.'"Think, of the
t to ask you
i 1913, :
! paran
1219 persons were killed, and
the ten years (rom 1907 to 1316 there
was a total of 12,400 men kilted. In
1913 there were 176,868 persons Injur,
ed and off work [or mare than seven
days, ard fn 1914 the number waa
153,562. In twenty years there was
nut iess than an average of 160,000
persons injured each year, or a total
of about SIA millions. These figures,
he added, did not of course include
what tbe miner paid by death from
disease contracted in   his occupation.
- Witness laid down as a standard of
life a sufficiency of food, clothing, and
education, good housing amid pleasant surroundings, and leisure and recreation. This claim was not made
Jieoause of circumstances arising out
of the war. Previous to tha war, dur-
ing the war, and at' the present time
the miner could not get these things
because either of low wages or nigh
prices. This was more especially
the case with the low.paid workmen
underground, known as datallers or
oncost men, and' the surface workers.
. For these classes of men mining might
be said to be a sweated industry.
Lanarkshire Statistics
In Scotland, the witness said, housing was very had, as was shown by the
. report of the Housing Commission and
preBioosly by the medical officers' reports.     Conditions  had     been    even

The Miner's Home
At the end    of   witness's evidence he quoted the following from

Mr. Robertson assured the Commis-
from medical officers' reports.
'Mr. Balfour asked whether the conditions might not be improved by increasing output.
The Witness—1 think the work does
too much. The fault is with the dis
tribation and not with the production.
A man is not born to be a. steam en.
The argument of the economist-is
based on theory?—1 don't think so.
They are borne out by facts. If you

Miners' and Gardens
-Mr. Forgie asked questions as to tbo
inclination of the miners to cultivate
gardens, and suggested that ihe gar
dens were more cultivated before the
eight hour day came into operation.
The witness did not agree. He
thought.that the miner as any other
class, would dig bis garden if he gat
'Mr. Forgie said that in one place
six beautiful baths were provided for

May Wedding in Fernie.—This city
was the scene of an unusually inter,

when Paul Lantz, of Silverton, B.C.,
and Miss Emily Biggs; of this city
were happily united in wedlock at
the English <;hiirch by the Rev. F. Yol-
land, in the presence of immediate rel.
atives and friends. Promptly at 7
o'clock the bride entered the church
on the arm of her father. She was
attired in a beautiful dress of white
satin and gorgette crepe and wore the
conventional bridal veil and oranga
blossoms. Mr. and Mrs. A. Chivers, of
Fernie. sister and brother-in.law of the
bride, acted as witnesses. Little Em.

Manual Training in Fernie Schools.
—For some time the School Board and
many,, citizens who are interested in
piogressive educational measures have
discussed the advisability of establish.,

connection with the Fernie schools.
The chief preventive of such a step
being taken is financial. On page seven of this issue is an article by Mr,
Jenkins of the high school, based on a
publication by Hollistor, Heath & Co.,
Jlr. Jenkins has already favored The
District Ledger with a number of ar.

nie. Every man and every woman in
that audience was grateful to the chair,
man of the school board, S. Herchmer,
for having called the meeting and to
the acting health officer, Dr, Garner,
for his plain, practical talk and warning regarding the loathsome disease of
syphilis.. now so prevalent in Fernie
and which has-actually contaminated
and probably marked for life even a
number of school children.
, "Before I go ahead with my talk,"
said Dr. Garner, "I want, to know if
this audience is willing to lmvo a
spade called a spade." There was universal assent.
The doctor, aided by stereopticon
slides, explained the causes of tho
dreaded venereal diseases dwelling
particularly on the dangers and loathsomeness of syphilis. He told how
the disease had been discovered among
thechildren at school and of the pre.
cautions that were now being taken.
He urged the mothers and fathers pres.
ent to take a deeper interest in tbe
welfare of their children and gradually
hihtruct them in the vital facts of life
rather than allow them to gain their
knowledge on the streets and back alleys, He said that if the parents would
form an association and if the mothers
wished to hold meeting for further advice and Instruction his services would
gladly be placed at their disposal. The
ii'tense interest shown on the faces of
those present and the cordial applause
given the doctor at the close of his
talk was Indicative of the appreciation
of all present.
Mr. Herchmer gave the parents pres.
ent assurance that everything possible
was being done to minimize the aan.
ger. The toilets had been thoroughly
disinfected and it was proposed to
have a personal examination of all pu.
pils in the schools by a doctor and
qualified nurse. To this proposal by
the chairman the audience gave"unan-
Iinous approval.
The question was asked from the
audience if any police action had been

Fernie is not the only place in Canada which has reason to be filled with
alarm over the increasing prevalence
of the disease. Neither is Fernie the
only place where false modesty and
the basest form of commercialism have
combined to further the inroads of
these loathsome maladies.
A noted medical writer says: '"Without doubt the kiss of a person afflicted
with syphilis is more deadly than the
kiss of a leper," and all medical au.
thorities agree that it is one of the
most dreaded of contagious diseases,
Scieuce has fallen it from tho realms
of the mysterious and made it prevent,
able and in its early stages curable.
Prudishness and a lax enforcement of
law have prevented science  from a
more thorough control of the disease.

distributed over Canada warning the
people against the "germs of Bolshev.
