Critics of tbe Government have condemned the appointment of this commission on grounds which make one
.blush for poor human nature. Notables!
of the facts connected with the critics ol
the -Government is thie one of want of
Ordinary intelligence, but a marvellous
gift of malevolence and petty jealousy.
Mr. 11*orthorntbwalte of Xanaim-3,
elected as a labor member, takes the extraordinary position that this commission, appointed hy tbe Government out
of a sincere desire to devise waja and
means to increase.the caf~ty of men fob
lowing the most dangerous occupation
Jn this province, will be a royal farce,
but without adducing any evidence to
sustain his cbatge,
Are we right or wrong In Buspecting
Mr. Hawthornthwaite uf a mean jaal
ouay of the commissioner.? Did he
.want some of his pronie; on that rem*
:nisflion? Did he want to Bit on It himself? Perhaps he was, to use a vulgarian
of the day, sufficiently "sat upon" by
the Hon. Min'/c; of Miuea in that fa-
raoua letter in reply to Mr. Hawthorn-
thwalte'rj extraordinary telegram. We
do not think that Mr. Hawlhornth-
waite'a behaviour on tbat occaaiou wae
autb as one was entitled to expect from
a man calling himself a labor mtmber.
We should imagine that any apt of tbo
Government looking toward the amelioration of the condhiun of any class of
worklngmen, any bIiow of sympathy or
Interest ip that direction, would meet
with tbe hearty and prompt approval
Md support of all labor members, But
fiere we have a so-called labor member
wb*> protests against tne Government
[taking any interest in the coal miners;
wbo seeks to obstruct,and ombarraBS
where he ihould strive to help and encourage] who criticise-, fiercely but has
no useful suggestions to offer.

Amongst t!:o Socialists of the preaett

ability and education, nnd H te in their

methods, lhat the theory, Socialism, iB
taking on lhat aspect which is at lust
winning the respectful attention of states*
men the world over.
The Italian Government is today entirely dependent ou the Socialist vote,
It has granted railway tickets.at reduced
priors to all tho delegates attending the
Socialist Oorg-rcES ut Imoiu, whilet
Italian legislation is tending more ami
more toxard a purely Socialistic baeie,
Whether Ud-* iu to Mpeue Italy from tbe
fearful condition to which ex.efiBive
armaments, nun pant militarism and
thenttempt to keep pace with wealthier
and butter* managed nntions, have
brought her, remain to bo seen.
No one who knows Italy will dispute
the assertion that the things wn have
mentioned ure directly responsible Ior
LaiY'iid.Bpprate poverty, or that If re*
lief of some kind be not scon iipplicJ
Italy mutt disappear from the list ot
"pojrere." Italy has now the sintlhst
population ol any of the European "powers''—thirty-two millions. It i-J population, after all, that counts in reckoning national strength.
Then Italy has been fruitfully mismanaged, We have often conversed
with British engineers and mechanics
t-viio have seived in the Italian naval
yards aud Govern ment eb op a,-and tbeir
stories of wasto and fraud; nr gleet,
nepotism ami plundering are enough to
sicken anyone who cherishes tbe least
particle of regard for Italy and wishes
her well. Bit our Socialist friends are
very confident that they can rescue Italy
from the fate that Beems Impeuding, and
establish her on a safer and stronger
footing than mere militarism can give.

Ladysmith P.O,
TlirilHng Experience of Stenographer
Seymour of Bayal Commission.
When the R iy«l Commission regard-
irg coal mine eitploeloni was in Cam-
h.-ilanl, Mr. Ijoiii. J. Seymour, the offl-
c'al stsuog.ni'her of the commission,
who Is a keeo hunter and naturalist,
besides lieliic a ilevoteil djjjeipli) of husk
Wallop, went cut Into the forest around
the lake behind Cumberland towo lo
fish and drink in the beauties of natnie
strain) t from the font, L'ke many
ot'mr woodlai.d rnmblen Mr. uevinniir
t lull no thought for the return journey,
anil it wai as iho shades of night were
falling fast that he, to use the eatracr-
dinary vernacular nf lhe day, found
himself "up against ii" when he tried to
"strike Ihe home trail."
He endeavored to call to mind all the
foreit lore that he knew. He remembered tint on the north eide of frees
there il no moss; or was it there that the
miss grew? Once implant a doubt in a
lively human mind and everything noes
by contraries, lie had no compass, but
the sun, fortnnatoly, wai setting, as ue-
u .1, In the west. Bat that was no guide,
as Mr. Seymour had eotirely forgotten
In which direction Cumberland lay.
Swiftly fill the ihadowi of nlsht In
the forest aisles, and the unpleasant
oinvlctlon foiced itself upon the loll
traveller that he wai doomed to ipeml
the hour! of darkn.i. in Ihoee gloomy
recesses, the haunt of the wolf and the
bear, and otber prowling denistna of the
woodi remote. Mr. Seymour kindled a
Are and eooked on the glowing embers
the fish he had I cklly caught. lie had
to eat them without lalt or Worcester or
anchovy eauoe, but one gets nied to the
absence of those creature comforts when
Kicelitnr il the game. Neither were
then any table napkins, and it wai
beastly to have to eat Sah with a pocke
knife and no fork.
After this untump'uous repast Mr.
Sepmour determined that il he shoul.l
bave to die b. wonld leave the world a
memento ol hll pretence in thoie b illy
parts. He Bayed tbe bark off a large
section cf od.r tree and wrote In bold
■'Slate viator I manilt anperbus"
Know all men lhat. I, Louis J. Seymour, 'ost In tbeie bsaatly woods, camped here for the night. It was de'naadly
cold, anl I had no waistcoat, Dine Under my hand and seal this (torgot tht
date' 1991!,
When morning dawned, bleak, cheer-
leas and chill across the eastern mountains the sleeper awoke it IT as a salted
codfish to a reallzitioo of hie awful position. He men tried to imagine that in
bad bie-kfjeted 00 tenderloin atetk,'
poached eniie, mocha c.fTio and Aator
hon'e rolls with golden Comot hotter
and Dundee marmalade, followed by e
Henry Clay, hut though tbe imagination was willing llie stomach was powerful wmk, ami thia fancy meal faded
Ilka the unsubstantial pageant ol any
other vision, and Mr. Seymour felt that
he would havo to pin the reel of mankind pretty aoou or there would b, another case of the bahce in the wood for
the ri.liiiis and thc blue Jiy. toattend to.
He tried to establish commonication
with Cumberland hy menus of wireless
t locraphy, using a three-hundred loot
pine tree as a sen ling rod; but that tree
was not growing current! just then aud
tbe attempt failed considers!, y.
Meanwhile two rescue partial had
been formed, one headed by Mr. Thomas
Morgan, coal mloei inspector, an exper
ienced aco.leui.ii!; and the other by Mr
Priest, surveyor, al.o skilled in woodcraft. They set out making a wide di-
tour so ns to cover much country. About
noon the two paiths met at Mr. 8sv-
moui'd camp aod alter finding tlie pile ot
well-picked 8sb bonis with learlol eyes
read the affecting epitaph written on tin
tree. With the gloomiest an'i -ipatioue
they resumed Iheir search. Mr. Seymour had In the meantime lound hi.
way back to Cmnbeiland. He tottered
Into bit inn nttni ly ritieiisterl, Indeed m
lar g me (hat Mr. Tally B .yce of the
eonitnfesion feared he would collapse
and 10 introduced with adroit manipulation a ltd glass of Hennessy'i three
star Into the waated form r-f the rescued
min. This had the desired eff.-ct and
Mr. 8 ymour wu soon sfterwards able
to sit up and take nourishment.
The able a'enograpber of the commii-
ilon has quite recovered from hii adventure, whioh, however, forun a viluahle

Mr. W. A. Aublo, Deputy Consul rl

Failed to Impress Public With Hit
Zeal for Labor's Interests.
If the general public would get after
their representatives in Parliament a.
the Trades Congress baa done with
Ralph Smith there would be fewer
charges of influence by corporations.
The free railway pass in tbe pocket of a .
member ot Parliament may not necessarily mean that he will be influenced
in his votleg In Parliament by tbe officials ot the railo-ay concerned but (he
public cannot help having ao unpleasant
feeling with relation thereto. Mr. Smith
wsi probably ai loyal in Parliament to
labor interests as any man'could uoisibly
bs, bu' the labor masses would certainly
have hnd reason to have had more confidence in him had he boldly eschewed
the pass when iff red to him by th.
O. P. R.
A refusal of a pas. by Mr. Smith
would ale. have given the general pub-
lie an enhanced Idea of the 2 -al for h>'
hor'. intereit. and the practical value of
tha labor leaden who go 10 Pailiamenl.
What li needed is to get 'egislators generally tn w>ke u 1 to a real 1 .Hon of tht
marked resemhl nee uf a p • ff red railway pass to a bribe. As far as Mr.
Smith is concerned, he not onlv did
what some 2(0 other members of Parliament do, but according to his 8(s'ement
he had thee.n>ent o( tbe Minen' Union
of British Columella to use the pas*. Iu
view nf the latter fact he did no. deserv.
the setting out that be received in th.
L b ir Congress, but the Congress' protest against Ihe principle nf the nre of
