„Th'e    usual .wee'kly  meeting   of
the Fernie, Locales. P. of C.\ was
. held, in; the Union Hall'. on   Sunday  evening.,.'. Comrade' McLaughlin presided., VThe subject   under
-■ consideration   was   "Unemployed,
It's Cause and Cure.",    and   was-
'   opened    out   in an    able and instructive manner by the Secretary,
Comrade Symonds. "In the course
of ,his. address the speaker said;—'
,,'•1 suppose that I am speaking to
a body of people' who have at some
*"  time   in -their   experience* passed
through    that. curious  industrial
phenomena,'  unemployment.    This,
is  an age   when we are boasting
of    our   achievements.     We   build
great bridges across space, and by
the aid of compass and pencil can
find   out  to    a   nicety .the  exact
measurement: of  each  span,    and
what it   can bear."    We have, our
big undertaking in railroads   and
other    things,  and one would expect with   all these things    that
, employment  would  be  found  for
ajfi. the people.   Unemployment   is
a peculiar thing.to one who does
np_t  observe but the socialist accepts it" as part of the present industrial system.   \       7-
iMost   of    you read -.the   '.'daily,
papers, capitalistic papers".we call'
them, and you doubtless suffer   a
siaiall    amount of uneasiness - in
.'reading'' these     papers, you. read
about  panics.    What "is  a  panic?
I" find a panic  means  a pancake;
or ithat which has gone flat.    We
waiit   to' take   into   consideration
what this thing is that Has e-one
flat.   We find railroads in America'
have laid off a large number   of
men. ■ flA great many factories   in
,  America |.have.been  closed,  down,
..and this is caused by the failure
of banks.   What is the outcome of
this;   closing', down' of factories?.
•The) outcome is the throwinc   out
,. of: employment of a large number
of  *men. *' In Vancouver a ' Teat
many men have been thrown out
.of* employment lately.   The 'unemployed question is a'very serious
one.' , * =■■•,,
In   continuinp-  ' the   speaker instanced the large • standing armies
. of unemployed in Germany, France
Italy, Austria, and Great Britain,,
arid pointed out various causes.of
unemployment such!'as, the intro-
duction> of   machinery and-labor-'
•^ saving devices, 'sickness,'accidents
' the     necessity   * of the. capitalistic
class , having  surplus  labor,    and

In dealing with.the cure for unemployment Mr. i; Symonds' said - a
class had. risen among the working  classes,   the   Socialist  Party,
who alone offered a solution     to
the unemployed question.    Socialism promised to'-'the worker     the
full product of his toil, and     all
who wished work would get work.

The General Manager Explains
Commercial Stringency
§ «
Montreal Dec, 13—At the annual
meeting of the shareholdex-s of the
Bank' of Montreal the annual report as recently, published' was
adopted and authority given for
tbe addition of two directors. E.
S.    Clouston,    general   ^manager,
' commenting on 'the figures contained in the annual statement,
said the increase in the deposits
" bearing interest was due to .. the
withdrawal, of funds by the people attracted by .the low prices of
securities'   and ' desiring to make'
. permanent'investments. - , -
'*, He referred to the stringency in
the money market, taking the
ground, that the reaction, so far
as Canada was concerned, was not
likely to be nearly so severe as in
tbe past instances of the kingdom.
The stringency -was due to universal    causes.     Countries     have
., been    living beyond their'means,
and retrenchment, was necessary,
, Mr.' Clouston also answered ^the
criticism ' on  the action,   of    the
banks in having so much    loaned
- outside the Dominion.) which in a
time of stringency might have
been used .to .advantage at borne.
He . claimed' it was necessary" to
Have sufficient assets easily and
quickly available.*-, Sums loaned
"to- call' in-safe securities were
really part-of the reserves of the
banks', and they had the' choice of
leaving, them lying unprofitable in
vaults or using them to -'advantage.- •' -   *   . ,'■     •*_   ■',"..   '
• ..Even if the money was' all call-
., ed in it-would not be placed    in
-*   circulation,   being_^a_na-rt_o_f__^the
reserved.' "„' .        ■■;.^" 7   ■■'" *   * . ■
"The. president, Sir'Geo. Drum-
, iriond, in his address was optim-
■ istic, saying:     "'■
■'•'Here in Canada we have escaped most of,all the troubles of our
neighbors. The' collapse-'in- stocks
has. no doubt affected- many in-
v'e'stors, but beyond a certain
tightening of the money ' market-
and advancing interest, I can see
no' evidence of serious 'effects. The'
banks have been-acting with caution "in their reserves,'which, • is
eminently proper with a conflagration raging next-door, but consumptive-demand has been good,
and the excellent business - of the
early part of the year has shown
little abatement up to the present
time." '' -      '",'.'
,   .  -     fl .
tor man a. realization of his . responsibility to his fellow man.""
To make'manhood felt far' and
wide was the highest .aim of niah,
and this was tV:e of "a, nation."
The law of influence is one of the
greatest laws which governs.us.
Man's influence on his fellow man
is either for' good or bad—that
influence is always present. Thus
it is that we can lift up or we can
drag our ■ fellow man* down'.
Through it' all we can see the vision of the great opportunity '' to
do good and influence other men
toward heaven.
"Some men who are in business
think that tbey have their .business to do.as they'please with it,
but that is - wrong." said the
Bishop. "It is a matter of stewardship and it is not his own for
his own use. There must be _. an
accounting to society, to other
individuals and an accounting, to
God who gives us these, opportunities. One man* may be given one
talent and another ten. The only
equality is in the opportunity for
service, and.each man will be held
responsible only in that measure
that he has given talents." ■
The speaker then referred to the
great  moral   wave  that  was • at
the present .time sweeping over the
United States.   There was an ele-'
ment of.pessimism prevalent, but
despite    it- all   there    was    every
hopefulness.in the situation.   Men
■were beginning to- care whether a
thing   was,  right or   wrong,  and.
that... in   itself was    a great    improvement'- and    intensified     the'
hope.   Some men were- prone    to
think that the region represented
by the old    gospel     was-playing
out, but nothing could be farther
from the truth. . This belief was
being even carried' into the pulpit
and was developing into sensationalism'with, the yellow journalism as a promoting, force. o     >
- "Religion will never play .out,"
was the 'emphatic declaration of-
the. Bishop^'« "Men never" thou'ght
more v about it than*'they do. to-
"aayT^TKey are tired"of that which
has grown out of sectarianism in
religion, but out of it all is growing, a' grander idea of the Kingdom of flGod and the Saviour him-"
self.'*. Previously it was- a mutual
admiration society.—a sort of holy
1 elub—buL it did' not 'work,,
"The world is growing better
every day. and the type of manhood is. becoming nobler," ob-'
served the Bishop in com*lutiion.
"True. manhood is reaching out
so that you will lift others high-
el. Out" of the darkness there
ahines a light, • and that light is
so' reflected in us that we can see
the good works of our Father.and
glorify Him in heaven." '

Members of the United Mine
Workers' organization ■ and miners
everywhere are taking- an unusual
interest, ' in the forthcoming , election of national officials.- . ,
This is not surprising, as it is
the first change of any consequence that has been made,in", the
official force of the International
■ organization, for some years.
A great number, oi the membership personally know the candidates for the various -positions.
Those who have not met them at
conventions and at various district conferences, have had ■- the
opportunity of looking over the
various records of the different
conventions in the last eip-lit nine
or ten years, and should know
what. has or what has not been
done by ■ the various,. officials , in
behalf of the organization.
■. It would seem "* that the whole
question should be left to the rank
and file of the .membership, the
men who swing the picks and keep
up the organization, in order'.that
they may in turn be benefited   by
it.-   -.   . ., ,     „    . *; '..
This it seems, is not to be done
as it has reliably come to the
Industrial Index that a number
af the members bf the United Mine
Workers, holding official positions
and paid , from the Iaternational
treasury foi" buildr . ° the organization in," unorganized ' districts, in other words, some - of,
the organizers, instead ■ of- devoting their "time to the purpose for
whicli they are% employed, are engaged in' organized districts in, electioneering against, one of the
candidates for internationsl presidency. - -.     .,,''''
This is not done with, the consent of the organization, but it is
true ' nevertheless. ' ./And; it' is
"strange that, these people - all * repeat the same story and* repeat it-
in a-uniform way. The story has'
been printed in articles written'.' in
Indianapolis,,' Ind.',,and in Scran-
ton-' and .Wilkesbarre, Pa., arid
Have been'copied and recopied to
lhe effect that it is not safe to
elect'. T.-- L. Lewis'„ international
president because he is a "radi-'
cal." The'use and purpose of this
statement by the men who spread
it is ..to create'. prejudice against
United Mine Workers ■. ever had.
And we - question very much
whether the ■ people who use the
term "radical'. 'really know what'
the word means.
A radical is a man after truth;
is a man who believes in progress
rather than retrogression, believes
in ■ going forward rather than
backward, always works and is
doing something '' to uplift the
human family, •      ,
. All the.good'ithatwas.ever done!
in the way of securingMabor legis-'
lation and safeguarding the rights
of the people in Europe-in the
past centuries, has been done by
Radicals. Scienco produces Darwin, Huxley and Spencer, the
greatest radicals ever.
The first Congress of .what is
now the United States, was*in the
language of Lord Chatham, "The
greatest' body of men that ever
assembled.", Thomas Jefferson,
who, is given, credit for* writing
tho constitution of the ■ United
States, was a represontativo of.
the radicals,' 'Andrew Jackson,
tho father of progressive democracy, . was u radical. Abraham
Lincoln,1 who was responsible for
the freeing of a race of people
from serfdom in tho United States
was a radical of the most ■ pronounced type.
Those mon** wero all radicals at
the time when they actod, but
now they are all prophets, seers,'
and wiso men, honest men, when'
wo look back at thoir sayings
and doings from this time,
And coming to our own da", wo
would suggest that tho two' load-
ing figures In tho public mind at
tho prosont time, Theodore Rooso-
velt and William J. Bryan, aro
radicals of tho most pronounced
typo.   ..
In short, a radical has tho cour-
ago of his convictions. He does
something. Ho may mako mistakes, but in tho general trond
and course of events 'tho irreat
majority- is benefited by what ho
doos. A radical dons not live in
tho past but in the futuro, ,Ig-
noramusos who. accuso men of being radicals (-imply pay thorn n
complimout without intending to
do so, Thoy, the creaturoB .who
make accusation without knowing what thoy aro talking about
arc never found in the front
ranks of a fight, but always in
tho rear nerff tho commissary do-
pnrtmont, whoro thoro is somo-
thing to hand out and no danger,
and nothing to bo lost.
"By tholr ways yo fihall know
thorn." And tho.Indiistrinl Indox
would respectfully suggest that
when any person rcuires r.ny in-
tormntion ns to what tho various
...c.„.:, ... ,.,,„ iiuwinational or-
rrnntzritirm hnvo done, nnd vJvil

Pittsburg', Dec'.' 6.-A terrific and
disastrous «PloSiT011.0"^edo °*5
•Friday in Mines Nos. 6 and 8, of
the Consolidated Coal Company,
of Monongah, W: Va. _
"Mine Superintendant Malan says
* at the least"- 500 men   were'    em-
' tombed. -"      ■ " .       "'   '". ...
,    It is believed a majority of the
ettombed men,were killed.     _
The bodies o£ three miners have
beeii recovered near the .mouth of
mine No.  ti. "'-".■,    '      j.v
Mine No. 6 as-located-on the
east'side of the Monongahela river
and mine No.'8 on the west side.
How the explosion occurred simultaneously in both mines cannot
be explained at this, time.
,. All is confusion- at the scene of
'the- disaster  and: definite news is'
meaner,"   The explosion was heard
for 8 miles. -'• . - -
* After . the, - receipt of the' news,
physicians'and .'special cars'w-ere
r despatched from Fairmont to the
scene. '-.The' mine was too full   o^
been    made by the clothing ' and
shoes he wore.
The accident, the greatest in the
history of coal mining-,, has dazed
the people of this city. Tonight,
the streets of both this and Fair-;
mont;,are, crowded- with people,'
whilst thousands line- the^sills. in
the vicinity of the mines."'
^About ,40 ,percent..; of the entombed are Americans.' -
All hope is gone that any of the
men are still alive. t Nearl- 400
coffins reached Monongah todav
from- Pittsburg and,,from West
Virginia cities.
C. W.'.Watson,* president of. the
Consolidated Coal Comnany, said
to'1 the Associated ■-.Press today:
"The accident'is deplorable from
.every standpoint. " It was entirely
unexpected.. As yet, we do not"
know the exact cause of. the explosion. It might feave -resulted
from a blow out spot igniting , &
pocket of gas. About 50 per cent,
of the mine accidents of the coun-.
try. are caused in this way. It is
probable the present one resulted
from this cause. -We will conduct
a rigid examination. An investigation, however will not benefit the
dead miners. Their, families .will
be looked after.* » The company
will bury the dead."-
All the "saloons in Monongah
have been- closed since the explos-.
ion and the 6,000 miners employed in other mines in,, the vicinity,
have*suspended work and tendered
their assistance to rescuing' parties.- The property loss- is estimated at $50,000 exclusive,.of the
cost' of "rescue work. -   ,

It ig said,the explosion started
in, No. 6 and'spread.to N^oi '8
'mine, the two'*' being 'eoiii'.ecteU'., ;.
Another special says the first
explosion was followed by. the
blowing up oi a boileV.. in No. 8.
Gravest fears" are felt for the
safety of the great number., of
men. in the workings.
Some idea of the force bf the
explosion may be gained from the
fact that props from t the mine
were not only blown out of the
entry, but' were hurled clear across
the west 'fork of the,Monongahela
river.   Wires are down.
It is feared that, the;}accident
will turn out to be the'worst in
the .history of milling in this country.'   _
Monongah, W.'Va., Dec. 7.— At
9 o'clock tonight a total of     25
..bodies  had    been  recovered  from
mines "No. 6 and   8 of the Fairmont Coal Company of Monongah.
Scores    of    other, victims  are -in
sight of tho rescuing parties' and
it was estimated that at least* 100
.dead will be brought to the   surface  before    daylight    tomorrow,
Howover,    the    number of* bodies
, recovered tonight and early Sunday depend upon the condition of
.. the mino, it being said late today
that tho deadly black damp     became   moro , pronounced as     tho
further recesses of the mines were
i- approached, and it was a physical
Impossibility to    go   further     on
account of tho impure 'hir.   It   is
stated tonight by the gonerul manager that 487 actual minors were
checked off as entering tho mines
yestorday mornine,   This numbor,
It was further stated, did not include fully 100 tappers, mulo drivers,    pumpers  and boys.    Should
thoso figures be correct tho death
list will bo ovor 550 persons,   Thci
condition of tho bodies thus     far
recovered is horrible,   Many   aro
dismembered,    somo aro fearfully
crushed ond the rest are blackened
and burned beyond recognition.
Tho body of J, J. McGow, pit
boss, and one of tho best known
mining mon in West Virginia, was
recovored tonight in Mine No, 0.

• MVnohgan-, Wi.Vaii I0ec.,9.—Six-
-cy.hours after thfe, terrible.explosion of black H6.mp, which wrecked
mines N0S4  6 and 8\of the' Fairmont  Coal  Company last Friday
mon.ii.g, 53 bodies", or only about
one-eighth" of the total-number .of-
victims, have been brought to the
surface; while less than_.one;fourth
of   the    total'   number have' been
actually located.   The others, undoubtedly between 300 and 400 in
number,    lie in' unknown sections
of the'-east workings," that extend
two miles and more back from the
main entrance to the mine's.   The
unlocatsjd   bodies" - are,   seriously
menaced by  destroying  elements,
by   decaying   in- the overheated,
humid and vapor poisoned atmosphere,,   and * by    fires    that   are
smouldering'here and there in the
workings, and from time to  time
bursting into flames.   Steadily the
chance     is     ebbing     that     these
bodies will be brought'to the surface, identified  by friends' and relatives and given Christian burial.
A large force of" skilled miners,
volunteered    for*-.- tHe   hazardous
task of the' rescuing,, are on     the
scene, ready to re-enter tho mines
and take up the work where they
were forced to  leave it yesterday
when fire, broke out in'mine   No,

from Clarence Hall, the export of
the Federal government and J. W.
Paul,   West Virginia, chief    mino
inspector,  Thoso two men aro now
, in charge, superceding ofllcers   of
tho mining Company«and others,
who directed the first rescue work.
New    difficulties   and complications havo confronted the rescuers
on every hand, but only with brief
interruptions, .the work was con*,
tinuod until three  o'clock yesterday afternoon.   Tho flro drove all
from tho unexplored rogions   and
tho search had to bo abandoned.
Tho flames have been fought     bv
ovory * possible ' moons, including,
tho.. laying of    water pipes  from'
tho river far into tho mino,
The flro which broke out in No.
8 mino yostordav was walled in
this morning nnd tho recovering
of the bodies of the victims of
