D. M. iSberts, ■'. K.C., - member-elect

ing. tribute to the fitness of the chosen, member for the position, an knowledge, of parliamentary'law and practice and long -experience,, in dignity
and courtesy, and a disposition, to
do justice Jto political friend' or foe.

Now, when .the "chief could admin-
ster the law under- his own hand' at
that time, why could hc^ribt govcn
with the now celebrated gambling
case, as it is called? ^.
' lie took the responsibility of not
prosecuting two certain hotels, why
did-he not take 'the same responsibility uiid drop the little poker game
without going to the--mayor for his
opinion on the matter? '

iAnother thing I would like to ask
Mr, Walker, through'your paper, is
why, that when informations were
writleu out and sworn to before a
police magistrate, why were the parties not brought to court and prosecuted the same as the rest?, I,, don't
profess to know much about.law,-but
I think any lawyer will bear mc out
in; saying that after,an information"
had been sworn to,. A. P. Walker ha tl
no authority as, chief of police Jo.
drop-the case on his own accorl \n-
til it had been brought before, a
magistrate,11 In'which case, if he had
not sufficient evidence, he cauld, with
the consent of'the magistrate, w th-
draw the charge, . (,
I do not wish . to mention names,
btit^ if it is required, I cau give the
names nnd dates connected with.. the
above statements."
On"tho night that the resignations
of Ditthlc and Cattell were accepted,
Walker and I were talking and .judging by the way in which ie (Walkerl
expressed himself In regard to the
Mayor and certain cRImiib of-Fertile,
I should think Mr, Walker would be
nflhiiiiied lo walk tho streets of Fer<

Chief Walker wa« the first man. on,
the police, force to write out his res-
1} nation as a protest against the unwarrantable interference of the mayor
ij calling-a halt on the prosecution
of a case against the, Hotel Ferine for
gambling, and he said to the mayor:
"keep out of this nnd if I don't get
'a conviction I will buy you the best
hat in town."
Ife had all confidence in his two
constables, and relied upon their evidence to make a case.
« The mayor' was not willing that,
tllin Hhou.d he done, and the resignations of all the policemen were sent to
hiin. 1
"Upon protestation of the mayor,
Walker is said to have torn up his
resignation nnd the'mayor accepted
those of Cattell and Duthle.,
There was ii howl of Indignation,
anil the mayor pledged that, word of
honor that he would resign, too, ,J|
thit poker game wan not prosecuted
nsjsoon un the names of the police
conimlsNioui'is     hud   l>cen   gazetted,
\VeIl, those names have been, gazetted for Hcvcral days,
Wnlkcr has got "his Job back at an
inchme of salary to S130 per mouth,
mul has another Si30 city employee
to jlialp him, It is in Mr, Walker's
flirei't line of dtttv to prosecute that
|'o\'er gamp and thus help the mayor
to let'li Ms honor bright, Mr. Walker
resigned because he wns interfered
         ' "     ». i.t
the, swith -when he wanted to prosecute,
■that,case and buy the_mayor -a hat
if he lost. .... i        \ ,L
;   The mayor has withdrawn his , objection  and has pledged his word   of'
honor to resign, if the case    is    not
... , ,..-.   .*(
prosecuted. Walker's salary has.', been
'raised so that he could buy a dozen
hats if he were to "lose, and "still lie
does not prosecute. What's the mat-'
ter?' Is he^conspiring'to -compel '"the
mayor,, to resign in order' to" save
that'much pledged'"word "of -honor?
; Is the mayor going to stand, such'
ly refused to stay on' the""'force" "because he was told not to go oh'with,
that' case?' '      '   . ' "
, The mayor was so magnanimous'as'
to favor raising Mr.'Wa.ker's salary,''
and ' lie ' is "now back at tiie .head of
the force, and still he don't go on
with that case which the' mayor i.s in
honor bound, Lo say nothing' of his
oath,'to have prosecuted,       '  "■ .
,.The' mayor might "take.a lesson'
from Walker and' resign,: then get his
job back at a "25 per ', cent, raise,'
That would be good business,' antf
with the example of the chief before
him he should'aot be afraid.'"'        '    !
, In the meantime', the two men who
acted in good faith through'1"'all, this
shullling' <nnd sent in'their resignations, arc out of the city's service.
Us it better to take a man's "official
life with-'a resignation tliat 'sticlt's',' or'
lesign and.then repine, and feel 'like
you had been doing tricks?   "'iJ!     '

'"'':     AUSTRALIA."
It was Malcolm Donald'McEacharn",
'.ship owner/and"'capitalist, .who cleliv-
"'"• ered tlie^coirimonwfealth of Australia
.-.to the Socialist's.'.He is the one "con-
■servative •onl,the''contineat' ,that -.the
Socialists fight without malice..They
fare under; a debt of gratitude to the
/shipping- millionaire, and the bitter-
";""est offense lie 'sutlers is" die occasiJ'-ial
^'reminder - of that fact. , „
-_,! Of'course,  McEacharn didn't "want
. '^Socialism. He only wanted to lireak
.vthe power' of., trade s unions. ; He
jShougui'that their exactions had be-
Some intolerable, and there, was some
justification for that view. Strikes
t4vere common, and frequently thv
^tause ol* quarrel was trivial, but tht
..strikers were always successful because, the country was being Hooded
i|-withr'British nibney;- and the voice
lw the boomster was abroad ' in the
Isand.l'.'The union leaders were ignor-
iand ^of all economic laws, aud they
Mistook the existing condition for
'i&ne of- natural prosperity. . (That's
fljvherc!:tlicy. made their mistake.) -
ll McEacharn knew better than that.
•'He knew that the burst would come
floonef'or later, and he prepared to
ilattaclt1 labor on a falling'market. He
-tJS^urey to smash the unions, 'and re-
Wve'lthe heel.oi aggressive deiuo-
'iracy^from the. throat of capital., A"
partial victory' -was ' not" what he
'•eVanteo. He'was after tlie whole hog.
file got it. ' (That's where he made
j£is mlstak*.')
ir| The^unioaists were lions'.led by as-
?§W itcEacharn knew'that. * Timl
ftirterRiime the-shipping union made
Siuaands upon his'company; time aft-
far , rime he, granted these, demands
^rith Wiling *'readiness:' But 'day/aft-
•eV da^he went on building together
?the units of a force-to fight trades
,-tinionisni that was destined to sweep
IJtirgaiiized labor out of existence. The
'plan was colossal, but the" solid pat-
jlfencerwith which in'the\ meantime he
;i;'« i-ii'"?'" .he g.i'.ling ""exactions' of the
ttradcs'was quite as great.
^.Aud'ithen   one   'day he loosed    hi
. ihunde'rs and struck' hard and straight
faind true. He chose the time of bat-
fin, the cause of battle, and the place
of battle.- The''unions chose. 110th-
jag. They were arrogant'with riches.
&'ftae^.cause of'.quarrel was childish,
ilh McEacham ineaut-it should be. A
mfierencc arose1 between tlie' qiiafter-
~ "master,1 and'the steward of .one of his
coasting steamers over the charms of
^^"sreiimrtieasr^The captaifiTTo   stTtlKT
the  difficulty—as he  thought,;   poor
;. ilian--aischarged the sailor. McEach-
&rn, knowing what the reply would
tft, oilered to. put him on another
snip. , The union demanded reiustatc-
in'ent on the same ship. , McEacharn,
in very' courteous1 terras, pointed out
that that'was impossible. Then the
asses 'who led the lions, told him
tliat unless tlie reinstatement was effected within twenty-four hours they
would call the'crews oil nil his ships
and order a general strike.
|Than,'' like a Hash, McEacharn .un-
imasked his guns. Back went the
■reply that, the' unions might strike
■Ml be dttiiihed."
* [the strik« was ordered. And , then
ithira followed a battle grim and
.great. Union after union was called
•out, ship after ship was tied up,
■s<4te after stato was involved in the
sjairrel, until- the ""whole continent'
iftliabd under arms, In loss than four
weeks the fires of'nearly every coasting steamer were drawn. The trade
of^'Australla was parulyzod. Four
liiifaldrod thousand unionists were idle,
mta* every man of them was drawing
haj) pay. Also every unemployed
.laborer was paid a weekly allowance
\who looked like becoming a free man
ih'dkn the general 'fund to prevent rc-
•miaalug tlie ships,
Alit tlie Shipowners' Union that Mo
Ksi^tara| had organized didn't even
try?,to reman1 'the ships." The laud
bfcilplm hud reached its limit, trade wns
declining, very large coal reserves had
beeii laid up, tlie funds ami membership1 of the i unions were known to a
dollar and a   man,   The   shipowners
on  thi-ir - hunkers
simply sat down
aiid waited.
. The trades leaders organi/.etl
ets, but" there was nothing for
to ilo. The' problem wus a' new, one."
They, couldn't'solve it. The owners
were apparently not trying to run
their -■> ships at all. Patterson, .who
owned'one ilee't, wrote to the -stiike'
committee, and in a veinjj of 'jiawky
Scotch humor, offered to'sell-'them
his ships,   -
Then it dawned upoa the union that
ihe strike had,become a lockout. Tlie
besiegers were liesiegod. The-weapon
of, capital was not fiw. labor, lint
starvation. '
Starvation won easily. Ten weeks
after thc-first .sliol the unions capitulated lo the grim foe, hunger, that
be.'orc,' then 'had Lowed tin, neck of
many .1 proud city. McEaeliarn had
meant lo break ihe unions.' And they
weie broken all-right.
Funds gone, membership'deeiiniiuit-
ed, courage wilted, the once great
trade unions of Australia were counted out.
The capitulation was announced in
the biggest public hall the labor lead-'
ers could get. John Hancock, big
bodied and big hearted—the finest
platform man in Australia—-rose ' in
that hall of silent hundreds to tell
the men that they must return to
work on the' best terms they - could
get. It was the shortest and most
pregnant speech he" ever "made iu . his
life. "Friends," lie said, men of Australia, we have-not'been beaten; we
have-been starved into submission.
Unionism, is dead,, but .anything '-> can
happen,in a democracy, and from the
ashes of the funeral pyre that" the
shipowners have lighted will rise -the
phoenix' of our liberties."
Nobody knew what he meant. It is
doubtful • whether he knew himself.
But it sounded large and-fine, ainl.
something , with that sort of loiind
was,just what tliose depressed • eople
wanted that night. *      *
But-one year later big John Hancock took his 'seat in parliament—the
first lal-or member sent in by the first
labor political "party in Australia.
■ Vanquished , in the industrial war,
the members of the battered"' trades
unions liad reorganized their forces
on a political basis-and sought .to
win by the ballot, the privileges capital had denied - them. Someone discovered that where all-men had votes
and  the bulk  of-,men  are wage-ea.rn-
"crs, tirey7"nly~lfa\;e to decide ;.moTTg"
tlieniselves what they want from the
state to get it. _. i      '        ''
_, That was only ten years ago. 'And
now they have gotten nearly all they
wanted. Think of it".' Eleven years
ago the unions "were, battered,- dead,
done for. Today their direct, lineal
successors own , the whole blessed
commonwealth  of Australia.
.They attacked municipal councils
first,'und enforced the minimum wage
and eight'hour days on all of them.
They attacked' the.state parliaments
next and, gained factory legislation
11 nil old-age pensions and compulsory
arbitration. No factory in the country cun'"'now employ child labor, or
work its people more than eight hours
per day, or pay less than the minimum wngc fixed by tlie wages board.
In two of the six, states the labor

iu two others they hold the balance
of power, und" in two, others they nro

In the senate half the members arc

Mr. Ii.' Edwards, superintendent of

ion, -with headquarters   - at Calgary,
i *■ ^ *   ^ t_
■ was in the city yesterday, Mr. Edwards is a very obliging official, and
has rendered good service to his com-
pany.c He is resigning -his position
witli the C. P. R; to take charge, of
. the " 'Alberta ■*• Government telephone
system on the first of April., This is
""in—th.F:"iine~*of a^prom"ofion~to~Mr
-Edwards, and he takes charge of an
enterprise which will,call for executive ability of a, high order. Mr. Edwards, however, will lie equal to the
taak set before him, and the Ledger
wishes him and the system he takes
charge of all success.    -
The demand ol the United Mine
Workers, now in session at Calgary,
for'' a bi-weekly pay, is eminently
reasonable. The workingtmin is often
unable to provide his expenses for a
Inohth. or six weeks, and'necessarily
has recourse, to stores where credit is
given. Now, quite apart from any
difference in prices, it costs far -more
to live oa a credit than on a cash
ayateni. To pay wages weekly , or
fortnightly, instead of monthly, is, in
effect, to give tlie employee nn , increase , in pay which costs the cm-,,
plo.yer practically nothing.—Vancouver World.

Interesting Address by., a ,Prorn^
inent Labor Leader
A very largely attended meeting of
labor men. was held in the Alexander
Hall on Saturday night to enable the
visiting delegates of the Miters' As
sociation to lay their case "before the
local trades unionists.
The meeting was under the auspices
bi the Trades Council and Preii-Ieht
Henderson, of the council, was iu the
chair.-.'.' ,      ■■'
' In a neat speech."he introduced • the
.members of the Miners', Asso'ciavon,
Bind called upon , Mr. Sherman, the
district president-. l .lie association,
to address the meeting. ' ■
Mr.  Sherman,    who1     was ree'i/'.i
with loud applause," hoped that,    bis
Audience did,,  not    expect too much
irom h'iiuf as be had not prepared any
...speech <  and was    not in such, good
shap« as he might be. ,    »
■' He'noticed by, the"press that people of this city were complaining of
lack of'coal, and, that different reas-
- ons'iiad'been advanced, for this and
for the,"high price of the fuel. He said
that this was not the fault of cither
the operators or the miners. It; was
the lack of cars for transportation.
He also warned those present to lay
in a stock of coal next fall,   as   next
'   winter  ' he.   predicts a much bigger,
famine..than prevailed this.year.
.    He also spoke, of the high price   oi
coal,, which he?blamed on toothe   operators^ and' referrod to the bill    before the house which would stop the
workingman  from striking  to obtain
his' rights.'   The   miners  regard     the
present'bill'l as V step  in  this -direc:
tion. ,-.   ',-_- .',.,'.
In  the/press , statements have , ap-
strike next Monday. This was not
correct', as contracts*- do not'' expire
till April I, and,it had only'been
done for; the reason of rushing 'the
present, .bill. through the house. He
did not see any reason, from the min"
' tr'a standpoint, for a strike at &'iy.
, They, do not object to any investigation, as to any-of .their grievances,
but they would object to the investigations' as proposed by the new bill.
He has watched carefully the forming of commissions, and he always
had lound that they were always appointed in favor of-* tlie; parly who
appointed them.
In this country every man promin-.
•nt n business and political circles
Is "on the make," and he had seen
very queer decisions given because of
the greed of gold of some members of
tbe commission.
As coal miners they, desire to do
nothing injurious to others, but in
order to obtain justice for themselves
they, are sometimes forced to strike,
and by: cutting of! the coal supply injure many others as well as them-
Ml vet.
They had sent _a deputation to IM-
snontoa recently to present to the
government a petition requesting certain legislation from the hands of the
government.   "
The government was wondcrit'.ly
sympathetic and promised everything
that was asked for, but th.it v,is a ',,
and they how proposed m form e
commission to find . out what effect
labor legislation would have upon the
working classes.
They had got s. bill introduced, the
eight hour, bill, hut this was withdrawn until' after the investigation
true made by the commission.
He thought that Mr, dishing, the
. member for this city, was a good
inun and was sympathetic toward (he
labor party, but he wiih not strong

The workingmen ..of .'today._,cannot
accept the old system.,.When workingmen , begin . to doubt, and study
they will soon begin to look for another system and better ideas.

Wallace, Idaho, Feb." 28.—The Btn-'
sational',statb»neht--bf Adaius in ''ic
miner's trial, :,was,  in substance:,
"On the" sixth day after I was taken to Boise, and put in.the cell with
Hany Orchard, I was taken to the
police oflice of., the penitentiary ; and
introduced to Detective, McHartlatid.
He told'me,about "Kelly the btiin"
and other men who had turned states
evidence,' and had been set free.' He
kepi me until four or five o'clock iii
the morning trying to make me confess.     .'.,.,
,_V'McHartland told, me 'that he.
wanted to convict Moyer, Haywood,
Pettibone, St. John ^nd Simldns^
whom he called "cut-throats:" If I
would not help to convict theni'' he
said I would be taken back tb Colorado and either be hanged' or mobbed. If I helped I would only be takr
en-to Colorado as' ,a witness:'''When
we parted McHartland told me he
was my friend. He put pie back _in-
to the cell .with Harry. Orchard? Orchard talked to me about the need of
backing up his story, I„was -somewhat frightened. Next day McHartland called again.. . ,..,..,,. j *.
. .."I.'aaid I would not do what he
wanted.me to do.-    He told tne   to
aud he had found out-that the store
jieople added the sum.of I1.10 on 10
ll.c price it coat them: This, was »i'i
the basis of prices given '.o him; t|ie
company probably bought for less. It
was true that a man could send away
hr supplies, but the store people had
such an elaborate system of "spotting" that he was always caught, and
invariably punished by being laid off
for a time.
The laws regarding miners this sulc
of the Rockies were absolutely no
good. Iu British Columbia the \.. *.s
were better, and between thirty »«nl
ft rty thousand dollars had be^n received by the relatives of miiurs kill •
ed or injured while at work through
the carelessness of the operators.
Whether those present at this meeting believed it or not, tho labor men
were never going to obtain justice
I torn employers or politicians aniens'
they, started to look for it.
If the lnlior party here had a representative in the,house' who, was
worth his suit they could make things
hum at Edmonton,
lie also slated that now that there
were mines in the Calgary district
the miners would be iu the battle
next election, and put a candidate into the field.
He did nol want tb preach a revo-
lytioti.iry. doctrine at all, but the
worMiiu classes of Canada do not un-
ileratund the great power they possess.' They understand tlmt it is ne-
ce-siiry for them to orguni/t from a
union standpoint, but when they begin to get It btei their heads thnt. i-
is more than necessary for them to

said that he would see. that my family were cared for.
"'•"When the confession was 'made,'
McHartland led me ou step by step
and showed me all he wanted to'say.
He told me that what I.'said ubout
the. Toler aud Roule murders, was
only taken with the idea of making
a strong chain of evidence to convict
the'officers of the Western Federation
of Miners. He wanted the names of

tion to me to sign."	
Adams confirmed that- part n| the
confession dealing with his (inulv,
but denied the' paragraph relating to
the plot to kill ex-Governor Steunen-

The wittiess said that he had at
different times been visited by W. E.
Uorah, Governor Gooding ami .*.t--
torney Hawley, but he was not allowed to detail the 'conversations.
pUused to.extend to the operators a
very cordial welcome. He was very
sorry, to see that no more had attended so, important a gathering. >
''"• He did not- think it necessary to ex:;

as he was sure they all knew why
they had gathered'there.''j

C,  the product is sold at 5 shillings

thought' that much might, be done at

In the cast the operators _ and   the
miners have - a mutual  loyalty?. .for
each other and are able to meet ou
the. common ground of equality    and
good!fellowship, and the same     conditions should..exist in the west.

■would be doing, well if they , accomplished   no more than,    to .arrange
things so tliat the miners   and ; their
employers should,be able,to do this.

that there were twenty-threo miners

convention. The matter would not
affect",the operators who were present," so they had nothing to fear.
. If < anything . unjust, happened ,. it
would-be the^fault of-the operators'
who had, relus'id to attend,., and' they
would'have to suffer lor it. They

liie^spejke s veere laboring under il.
lus-ous. '1-tnor.tilK he inferred lhat
what Mr. Stockett and Mr. Flummcr-
fa.t meant was that these ' delegates
were licit to be allowed to vote or to
' act on the scales committee.*..
. This appeared to,be just what those
gentlemen did mean, and, as'. Mr."
Burl.* said that that was, just what
he meant, with the addition that
these delegates would .be granted the
privileg.'.s of entering into;, any * discussion 'during open session^'it'was at
last agreed that this was to be the
case, and a matter, that had at first
promised to " 'assume rather serious
proportions and1'lead- to controversies, was settled.
.The appointment of the" committee'
on permanent organization and , mles
and order of'business followed, and
Hopk liy Evan's and Thomas I,ewis
were, appointed for the miners and
Messrs.r'Whiteside aiia   Drennan     f->
the operators.   While  this committee
a:   -
were outside'.preparing  their   report,
the convention' adjourned to convene
again at the, cull of the chairman in
♦about' twenty,minutes. When the conference had again been called to ord-
*r and the report read, it was*found
that-the"positions'of cha nnan, secretary . and assistant secretary.' . had
been -'ratified.'* "   ,,
It Was' also recommended' that * the
oouvahtion  meet daily  between     the
, hours: of 9 a.m. and 12 a.m., and ' 2
p.m. andd5 p.m., aud that if necessary ^special' evening sessions be.held.
Theirvrepqrt waa-adopted,* aud1 t was
. afterwards announced that Messrs.
Stockett\, (Alberta) ' aiid IyLndsay
(British;. Columbia) would cast the
votes'for the operators,  and Messrs.
. Shennnu (British- Columbia) and J.
A. McDonald. (Alberta) for the miners. '.. __: ;,\- -   ' ■'•_ o'

waa then'-:read.. The names of'    the

• The '.conference then went into closed session;' and all except those who
were delegates from the operators,, or.
miners><-were required to leave. Al-
.tboogg it was understood that a Press
'committee was to be formed to g'.ve
,. information to the press of what
transpired at the meeting after '.lie
exclusion of the public, no news was
Available last night as 110 members
could be found who knew   anything
, about the, formation of such a com-
mlttee.; 'y.
It was learned,, however,, that the
miners were asked to submit their
proposals; to the operators, and that
they in return asked the,operates
to submit theirs. Owing to the but
that the operators had not prepared
'any proposals they were unable to
do this; and it is understood that
this state, of affairs called forth some
severe criticism from the miners.
. ., Eventually tlie miners submitted
Uioir proposals and gave ihe operators until this morning at 9 a.m. to.
think them over, and last night ,, the
members of the Operators' Association held a private meeting to c'ts-
ctiaa tlm matter among thcm.iul.'cs,
Owing to the strict secrecy ohssvrcd
by the operatora no authentic Intor-
'matlon as to what transpired ,>.t this
meeting is- obtainable, but it wns
rumored that objections will probably be raised to several clauses 111
the miners' proposals today.
The delegates of the miners .spent
the night viewing the production of
"The Golden Gloat Mine" by the
Hummers Stock Company at Die Lyric Theatre.
