They never eased up for a moment,

they had something oi' lho same luck

'Tho result so far as tlie competition is concerned, will pleuse everybody, All tho teams are on ah even

Salt Spring Players Disappointed the

The footbull match advertised to
take place betweon the Salt Spring
Islanders and the local intermediates
did not take place for the very sufficient reason that the men from the
Island never showed up. Whether
their boat refused to sail, or whether they fouled the transfer, or
whatever did happen is not known
here. They did not turn Up and
thero was no game. This was rather a pity for there was quite a
crowd down to see the game, and
some of the boys lost a day's work
to play it. However, it is only fair
to assume that tho Salt Spring boys

None of the others were present, although each one might ha\e a   good

.Nanaimo,  Nov.   10th-
Although few people in town are
aware of it, there is within six miles
uf this city a railroad iu process of
rapid construction. This is a line
which is being projected by the tiouth
Wellington Coul Co. irom their mine
immediately un the west side of the
i_. _i N. embankment at South Wellington, to liout il arbor, a small
but very safe littio anchorage an the
eust coast of this island, about three
iniies soutli uf Dodd's Narrows.
Tho company ure putting this road
through for the purpose of being able
to ship out their own coal irom
their mine at South Wellington thut
has been in operation in a 'small
wuy for a year or so. 'Thut the
company are sure now that they
hu\o coal in quantity us well us quality is evidenced by the fact that,
having secured tho power to commence operations by the enactment
of the Settlors' lhgihts Bill, they
have secured the necessary land und
placed the contract for erecting a
tipple ut the Squth Wellington urine,
and for constructing the road to
Boat Harbor in the hands of an enterprising and aggressive contracting
linn in this city,
Mr. J. A. Baxter and his colleague in this big undertaking, Mr.
Atherton, have been rushing the ini
tial stages of the construction i'oV
the past month and at the present
time have over two hundred men
employed either at tho frame in process of erection at thc pithead or on
the line of construction. A capable
stnff of engineers is engaged on the
project, Mr. Collins being chief engineer and Kiss Napier his assistant.
Thc road will be about seven miles
in length. It is being constructed
in fourteen different sections, all the
timber nml brush has been cleared,
ami ut the present time there is not
one-half mile iu which the sod hus
not bo thrown up In tiic grading.
Temporary construction tracks have
been laid and trucks arc run in with
the timbor for ties and bridgea.
The lino starts at South Wellington, crosses the E. & N. at Fid-
dick's J unction und meets Nanaimo
River where a largo Island separates its stro.un near Mckinuell's
farm. Over the main body of the
river, a one hundred and fifty foot
Homo truss bridge, which will con
tain tlOO feet of trcsstling, will 'e
constructed. The line will circle the
Wheatsheai' hotel, near where tho
company la instituting coal boring
oi'cr.itious. From this place tho
road will Ue on a fairly struiglA
und lew! line to Trois itras or Ilol-
don's Lakoi ihe south shore is followed lo tho hottom which will be
traversed on a trestling to a ridge,
which is followed to tho Shore of
Boat Harbor, whero a bridgo will
connect it with Swan Island, nn Islet
In tho bay, fully 80 leet in depth nt
lowtido oft" the wharves.
At present tlie construction of the
entire line is being pushed ahead nt
a rapid rate. Tho contractors
state that no railway construction
work on the island is being put
through with so much energy. Subcontracts have been lot to S. York &
Co., of Cednr District, and many of
tho farmers nro engaged on the work.
Tho building of this road means a
I great denl to Nanaimo for tho great
bulk of supplies aro being purchased
in this city. A great number of the
men employed on the work reside
here and eventually it will do much
to enliven trado and relieve tho labor market in Nnnnimo. it will ulso aid in developing a region tributary to this city.
in tho October number of "-Railway und Locomotive Engineering'^
correspondent hands ou t a nice
ouquet to Nanaimo, iiia name is
Oeorge H. Jackson, and ho came out
to Uritish Columbia from .Philadelphia with a locomotive for the Wes-»
tern Fuel Company. Mr. Jackson
barely mentions that ho reached La-
dysndth and then goes on to say:
"1 was then transferred to the
Esquimalt & Nanaimo railway which
is oporuted by the C.I'.H, I arrived at Nanaimo on Aug. '2. This is
tho great coal city on the coast of
Vancouver island. They mine approximately 5,000 tons of tho finest
steam coal in tlie world in one day.
Steamships from ull parts' of tha
world come hero for coal. The coal
brings $4.50 f.o.b. on the dock. The
population is estimated at about 8,-

and no Atiant *■ ■ \ , , bui they an

Mr. .Jackson's facts and figures are

loose and clastic, but seeing that he
does admit the existence of Lady*
smith and he possibly never heard
of Union Bay and Cumberland, the
Stundard need offer no apology for

DENVliU., Col., .Nov. 10.— In the
Denver Auditorium, where the Democratic iiosts assembled lust July and
named William J. Bryan for president, there were gathered yesterday
morning hundreds of representatives
if the workingmen of America. Thoy;
i'ere the delegates to the twenty-
lighth annual convention of the Am*
)ricau Federation of Labor and «,->
mong them was represented everjr
trade und every industry of the foiled States. lt wus an assemblage
brawny, line looking, intellectual
representatives of thc toilers, and
one that must have immediately ita-
ressod itsoU on tho minds of the
scores oi spectators who filled the
galleries and    balconies of the     big
Promptly at ten o'clock President
Samuel Gompers mounted the platform, accompanied by the other olllcers of tho Federation, members of
the executive committee and fraternal delegates representing the Western Federutiun of Miners and the organized labor bodies of Canada and
Great Britain. The appearance of
President Gompors was greeted with
oud und prolonged cheers, many of
the delegates rising und continuing
the enthusiastic greeting for several
minutes. After quiet had been ro-
stored welcomes wcre expressed in
l-ehali of the state of Colorado, the
City of Denver and the labor unions
of the municipality, and appropriate
responses were made by President
tiompers and several of the delegates.
The annual address of President
Gompers was the chief feature ofthe
pening day's proceedings. The address icas one of considerable length.
though it required more than two
hours in its delivery the delegate*
manifested not the slightest sign of
Impatience and gave it close attention (rom beginning to end. The
saliout points oi the address wore
greeted wilh loud applause, and when
Mr. Gompers hod finished he receive!
a hearty ovation. Naturally tlie
most interesting purugruphs of the
address were those dealing with the
participation of tho Federation in
the recent campaign und election. Injunctions, tho boycott, eight-hour le*
gislation and undesirable immigration were treated nt considerable
length and in Mr. Gompers' customary vigorous style. The spread ot
child labor legislation was commend-
od und tho delegates were urged to
renewed eft'orts in the work of organized labor and disseminating Uthor propaganda.
The address of President Gompers
was followed by the annual reports
of Secretary Frank Morrison and
Treasurer John D. Ecnnon. The report of the exocutive committee also
was presented. The convention is
expected to remain in session afl
least a week as many matter* ol
importance nre slated for consideration and action. The indications
are that the present officers of tho
Federation will bo re-elected without

Monday was Thanksgiving) Day.
The Dominion Qovornment, by proclamation, has set aside this second
day of the week as a day of national thanksgiving. Monday was
therefore a national holiday. Wa
are not very.much concerned with
tho reasons which prompted the government to decreo a Thanksgiving
Day, or with the object which such
a holday was intended to serve.
Very probably there was more ol
cant and pretence In it and around
it than any real living sentiment. In
the first place wo know that the hoi
iday is not natural nnd that It is
not nationally observed. A government holiday should be compulsory,
and, as far us possible, general in ill
application. Here wo have the shops
nnd stores closed and the mines and
othor industries at work. Why Is
it that the miner is excluded from,
or at any rate, is not brought Into
the scope of such a holiday, as a
day of national thanksgiving? Is it
because the thanks would then prove
too costly? Certainly this is the
explanation which most naturally
and readily suggests itself. And this
is not tho only holiday of which the
miners in this country have been deprived. Certainly thoy have their
Labor and Dominion Days; but that
is no reason why they should havo
sacrificed treat days which ore observed ull over tho christian world,
and it should ever he remembered
that, as a general rule, tho miner is
as much entitled to a holiday as a
man in any other occupation or profession. Locally, also, the mines
work six full days a week, a condition of employment which ia thirty
years behind tho times. fOf course,
all this ls rather away from the
point which wo were discussing.
Sometimes, however, there Is more

was unfortunate, that of the champions was simply disasti'ous. When
the local boys loft a week last Friday tbey knew they bail the match
of the season at Vancouver. What
thoy were not prepared for were tho
injuries to Adam and Brass. Evon
after these misfortunes they still expected to be ablo to disposo of
Tho Champions were in a different
caso. They loft home in a passenger
train and presumably took the Held
in good shape. They lined up against what everybody, tho writer included, considered to be a weuk ole-
von. Tho first half of tho game bore
out this opinion. What, enmo over
the game, whether tho champions fell
to pieces, or tho Victorians found
winning form, I cannot say. Tho
point is that Nanaimo were swept
Off their feet, and almost on tho call
of time, lost tho points at Issue.
As for tho Seattle game, thore are
no particulars to hand except that
the champions woro beaten two goals
to ono. Thore is no necessity to
seek an explanation for this result,
lt was supplied to us a week ago. I
wrote in the last issue of tho Standard that both clubs wero seriously
handicapping their chances by taking theso double-header games. I
know it read like an after-tho-ovent
excuse; but that it was essentially
sound this game with Nanaimo amp-
ly demonstrates. Ladysmith has taken its last trip of that sort, and,
it is safe to suy that Nanaimo also
will try It no more
As for the effect of these games on
the competition it would bo foolish
to rush to hasty conclusions. Certainly up-Island football has received a serious set-buck, but it will do
no harm to the game. Constant success spoils a club Just as much as
constant defeat. Also, and to the
samo extont, it kills the game. The
chances of both the local clubs are
still good, as good as any of the
other teams thnt are competing. But,
and I am speaking particularly for
tho homo club, there must be no
more mistakes. Every player must
use his utmost endeavor tp get into
shape and do all that is in him
the field. Then If defeat is still our
portion, we must e'en accept it like
good sportsmen.
For the rest, the results of these
matches will help on the game immensely both in Victoria and In Seattle. Victoria nover -won a game
last season, and had already been
twico defeated by tho homo boys
this yenr. The result of Saturday's
match will give a much needed fillip
to the game, nnd put new heart into
tho players. It would make things
particularly interesting if, following
thoir victory of Saturday they put
it all over Vancouver on Monday.
For the sake of tho gnhio in the
Capital City and not forgetting our
own interests, I hope they will.
Seattle's successive victories will
also boost the gamo in the American
city. Thero is no doubt in my mind
thnt tho pastime can be mwdo immensely popular over thore, nnd It
could have received no greater boost
than in those successive victories over the champions and ex-champions.
Finally these games even out tho
competition, givo every club a look-
in, nnd keep alive tho Interest and
excitement in tho result.

The game in Victoria last Saturday when tha local team ran up against tho crack aggregation of that
city, was disappointing in tho extreme Except in tho first few minutes of thc play, Nanaimo had tho
gamo all her own way in tho flrst
half, her team did brilliant work and
at half timo, when tho scoro stood
3 to nil In hor favor, tho chances
looked bright for a walk-a-way for
the local team.
Tho fact that the toam was
not In the best of condition, was
shown in the last half. Their play
uppcarcd to lose Its wonted spirit
and dash and tho Victoria forward
line was ablo to completely baffle
the usually invulnerable defence of
tho Nanaimo team. In quick succession two goals were scored by
Victoria who succeeded in outwitting
tho magnificent defense Rogors hnd
put up between the goal posts. As
McEwan in tho contro hulf-back line
hnd been crippled in tho first twenty
inlnutes of tho game, his line did
not support tho forwards, nor feed
them ns might otherwise have
been dono. Hewitt, too, had been
bruised up badly and towards tho
end of the ploy, tho strain told considerably on him, with tho result
that Graham alono had to bear tho
brunt of tho united attack. It Is
to bo rogrottod that Hewitt had not
boen relieved at half timo on tho
full-back lino, and placed among the
halves, relegating some other player
to All his customary position. As it
was tho Victoria forward line rushed
the Nanaimo defenco oil its feet and,
although tho local forwards made
several fierce dashes for their opponents' goal, tholr play seemed to
loso Its aggressive, invincible action.
Tho flrst thrco goals scored by'Victoria woro scored within twenty minutes of tho timo limit, and within a
few minutos of the whistle's shriek,
tho scoro stood 8 to 8.
Again tho Victoria forwards came
down In a mighty swoop and a fierce
melee ensued in the goal mouth.
Amid the din and roar from the
grand stand, tht shrill shriek of He-
foroo Rose's whistle was unheard.
Tho sphere had beon shot fiercely, towards the net. Paddy Hewitt, lt
seems, grabbed the shoulders of a
Victoria forward and headed the
whizzing sphere out of tho goal net.
A penalty was awarded and despite
tho grand efforts of Rogers to lave,
tho ball grazed his out stretched arm
and found the not. Play had Just
been resumed whon tho final shriek
of tho whistle sounded and Victoria
had won. 4->-8.
Tho following wns tho line-up:
Nanaimo—Ooal, Rogers; full-backs,
Graham and Hewitt; half-becks, Har-
After Ladysmith Journeyed to Vancouver and Seattle last week and
>-' lost two games, the Ladysmith man-
' agoment announced no more double
header games for them—playing two
league games in two consecutive
days. The management of tho Nanaimo Unltod team should follow
suit with the same announcement.
This thing of playing Victoria ono
day and thon Seattle the followiug
sitting up all night on a steamer
unable to get 'berths, then going Into the second game witli half the
was surely against our boys. The
team crippled and the other half so
dead tired that all the ginger is out
of them, is disastrous to the winning chances ot any team.
Ladysmith found it out last week,
and now Nanaimo has learned the
bitter lesson. There waB perhaps no
excuse for our boys losing the game
at Victoria, but the team mny be
allowed to say a word for themselves regarding the Seattle game
Sunday, when they wero beaten by a
score of 2. to 1, and the very large
crowd of old Nanaimo boys and girls
ln Seattle end the local followers
who journeyed with the team will
endorse what they have to say.
In a word half the team were crippled, and those who were not crippled were stiff and sore, as a result
of the game the previous day. Then
again the Seattle field was some
twenty yards shorter than the Nanaimo field and our forward I ne
could never get into action. Before
the combination got to work at nil
the boys were down on the other fellows' goal net and were either offside or centered the ball straight into the enemy's defence. Seattle are
used to that field and will likely defeat any team that goes up against
them on it. Then again the Seattle
men were in perfect condition—trained to the minute, and had a vastly
superior team to what they played
here with some weeks back. Then
while excuses are in order. It might
be mentioned also that the boys had
hard luck-the very hardest kind of
luck. The ball was at tbe Seattle
penalty line three-Quarto's of tho
play and shot after shot was made
on the Seattle goal. They either
went Just a little wide or over the
goal net.
As football goes we had it over
Seattle easily, and yet the score was
2 to 1 against us. On the other
hand let l< Ae remembered Seattle's
defence played a superb game. Their
backs were magnificent, and their
goal keeper was clever too. The
Seattle team had not much of
combination, but every man was as
hard as nails and played a hustling,
strong-kicking game. They bored
right in. The gome was hard, fast
and thrilling. In the bleachers were
almost as many Nanaimo supporters
as Seattle rooters and if rooting
would have won the game Nanolmo
should have got It. Thoro vrere
tnany Nanaimo girls dn the crowd,
and the way they begged. Implored
beseeched our boys to go in would
have inspired one of the Iron lions
guarding some of tho swell residences on Capitol Hill. It was all to
no purpose, however, for the
first half ended 1-0 for Soattlo. In
the second half Nanaimo kicked down
hill and we all said Naaalmo wdll
turn the trick now. It looked like
it too, for the game started with
rush and the Northfleld blue sweaters, which the Nanaimo United wore
scurried away down to the enemy's
goal and there was seen one of the
hardest figihts ever witnessed on the
Pacific coast lor a goal. It was
hammer and tongs., The Nanaimo
forwards pressed lika mad and the
Seattle backs replied as gamely. The
last flve minutes of the attack sent
cold shivers of excitement up and
down the back. It you have ever
seen a bunch of small boys scrambling for peanuts you will nave an
idea of how that last five minutes
looked. Finally, Joe Blundell made
one of those famous passes into centre and the trick was done. The saV.
age cries of delight that then arose
from ths Nanadmo rooters was good
to hear. After the face-off the boys
went at H again, but try aa they
might could not do the trick. In a
break away the Seattle forwards got
a clean sweep at Nanaimo's goal
and Rodgers, who played a splendid
game throughout, saving sensationally, was beaten again. The exultant yells of the Seattle bunch did
hot dishearten the Nanaimo backers
who hoped at least for a draw, but
the old hoodoo got working again,
and the desired goal never came, although we bad the ball playing ping
pong on tne Seattle backs most of
the tims. The times when It was
not it was up doing ditto at the
Nanaimo goal whero Graham was
putting up a herculean gams Iwith
Paddy Hewitt hopping around -on
one leg doing his best.
To   turn up, ths lots of tbe game
cannot he laid to", nny particular
player. Rogers played reliably,
Grahamr -despite -a-bad knee,—deli
ered the goods, ,Hewitt was partly
hors de combat, Farmer was thoro
wjt,h bolls every time, Thackeray und
Herley played hard games, Crulckshanks was able to move only with
difficulty from the previous game,
Hurren's ankle bothered him, Hooper
and Mitcholl each had a chance at
centre position and Joe Blundell
played his usual style — a brilliant
However, it is over now and judging by Sunday's gamo there is one
thing Nanaimo United has to do to
win tlie cup, that is thoy havo to
got out and drill. Vancouvor, Seattle, Victoria and Ladysmith nre letting no grass grow under tholr feet;
they aro practising all the time—and
leaving no stone unturned to secure
the cup. Nnnalmo United—nnd this
is said advisedly—has a better teoim
than any of them, but the toam hns
OFTEN. Doing this there Is no
fear but we will win tho Pacific

Th© game between the North Ward
Junior team of Victoria, , and tho
local juniors, drew quite a littio
crowd of football enthusiasts out to
tho cricket field yestorday morning
at half past ten o'clock. But, although their numerous friew's nnd
supporters cheered them on through
the crucial periods of tho gnmc, tho
local team was not able to run off
with honors of tho first season's
game from the husky lads of tho
Capital City. Howovor, the local
boys gave them a close run for tho
game and their backers assert that
they did not piny up to their usual good form or speedy aotion. Tak
ing into consideration tho immense
advantage the visiting team possessed in their far heavier men it must
be conceded th-if "■• homo team put
up a good clean game. The visitors
too, took tho greatest advantage of
their suporior weight and used rath:
er rough toctios in somo of their
ploy. Tho local forward line did
not play up as actively as thoy
might havo. In fact a few of tho
best mon mado no. show at all; Tho
forward line also of the visiting
team wore not first class in their
team work although they pushed
thcir line pretty well forward. Tholr
backs, were a tower- of strength.
In the initial pnrt of tho game neither side pressed ench other nnd the
ball wandered backward and forward
on tho centre line. At Inst tho opposing forward lino broke awny nnd
mndo a charge on tho Nannimo goal
but Shepherd saved in a cool manner. The Visitors' halves returned
the ball and Humber, who wos playing an off-side gnmc, put th" pigskin through. The goal was disallowed, however, nnd the game continued. Tho sphere traveled up tho
field dangerously nenr tho visitors'
goal, but it was returned and Humber again made a drive, but tho
shot wont wild.
A few minutes Inter owing to a
foul check on lloyco near tho contre
lino, tho local team received a freo
kick. Some fast team' pluy ensued.
Hillier rushed tho opposing backs,
but was blocked and a mix-up en-
st'Pd. Monzies saved, howover, nnd
tin ball traveled up field again. A
battle-royal now took placo beforo
the Nanaimo goal. Shepherd then
took a hand in thc melee nnd with n
right swing batted the ball out of
tho danger zone and on a roturn
shot tho ball was sent ovor tho lino.
Somo of tho visiting plnyors at
this momont hotly declared that
Boyce had fouled thc ball in tho penalty area but tho umpire hold his
ground and a goal kick was takon
A minute more and tho referee blew
for hnlf timo whon not a goal had
beon mado.
For tho last half Victoria placod
Humber in goal and Mcnzios took his
phico on tho forward line. Victoria
made a wicked rush, Init w-as declared offsido and Boyco took a freo
kick. Tho ball wus roturnod, and
Shepherd saved hut a corner wns
conceded. A mix-up thon ensued in
front of goal, hut eventually tho ball
traveled up fleld, hut lloyco was
thore with a slugger. Again it re
turned and Shophord saved from ar
off-sldo kick.' Tho local hnlf hacks
secured the boll from a goal kick
passed It up Hold to tho forwards,
who wakened up and mnde a grand
dash on their opponents' goal, but
bad luck wns their fortune—they
missed tho not by a pole  - i Ith
Following this, tho left wing of
tho visitors forward line secured the
hall, carried It down tho lino nnd
their forward lino made a united
chnrgo on tho homo goal. Shepherd
kicked out from a shot closo in, but
the players had bunched in tho goal
mouth and tho pigskin was picked
up again and forced right through,
and Victoria got tho first goal of
tho game. At the face-off tho forward
ljne again picked up the ball from
centro and mado a combined rush on
tho home goal. Tho ball was passed
down tho loft wing, hoadod ovor to
centro, kicked in from a strenuous
mix-up in tho goal mouth, and Victoria had secured goal No. 2.
The Nanaimo forwards now, got
Into action and the right wing carried tho ball quickly up lho. field,,
but Sweeney got In the wny. Morgan and Hillier did somo fast, classy playing, and 4>udloy did somo
strenuous-kicking, '(lospito tho fact
he die* not como' out expecting to
play and was handicapped by not
wearing football shoos.
Tho local boys at this stage of the
gome pressed the visitors hard and
forced throe corners In rapid- succession. Of tho ilrst two they failed to
take advantage. The third was
kicked out to Beattie who was on
the alert down from tho goal a way
He lifted it nicely into, tho bunch in
front of goal and after a' rough and
ready scramble the home team secured tholr flrst and only goal.       ''
After tho centre hod beon taken,

art, the active head of the big railroad cootractlng firm of Foley,

yesterday on his way down from

Prince Rupert, Mr.  Stewart said;
We have about 2,500 men at
work, but would like to have twice
that number. However, our gang is
Increasing now and wo sent up 215
more men on the last steamer from
Vancouver. Wo expect to work ail
the winter and will probably get bet •
ter weather f0r outdoor work from
now on than we have been having.
The snow docs not lie very deep at
Prince Rupert, but there will be enough for skidding, and it will facilitate our operations very much.
We have had a lot of rain this
season, and I understand it has been
one of the wettest seasons that was
ever known up there. For the lest
week, however, we have had beautiful weather, and we ought to get
better weather right along.
"I am now on my way to Edmonton, where we have the contract, for
building the 120 miles west of that
town. We have the contract for
building the 100 miles east of Prince
Rupert, and the company have coiled for bids for the 200 miles west
of our 120 mile contract out of Edmonton, and also for another 150
miles nt thc ond of our Prince .Rupert contract. This leaves a gap
of 225 miles on which tho contractors have not yet been naked to/ten-
dor. We are tendering for the]two
new contracts, but thoy have <not
been awarded as yet."

in about four weeks, when he .'will
go up to Prince Rupert again.'- He

post olllce was rendered. The following letter from Mr. Johnson was
Victoria, Nov. 3, 1908.
H. Buckle, Esq., City:
Dear Sir,—In reply to your enquiry
as to what actually took placo at
the time I resigned my position in
the postoffice, will say that on Friday, Sept, 25, I was as'.ed by a
person in authority what stand I
wus going to ta!>e in tho approaching elections. I replied that I expected that if it were a choice botweon Templeman and Barnard, 1
would vote for Templeman if only
on the principle of choosing the
least of two evils.
I was then asked to state what I
would do If Mr. Martin came into
tho local field. I ropllod that I would
unhesitatingly voto for Mr. Martin.
I was then told that such a course
would bring trouble, not only to myself but to the questioner as well.
The official in question had always
treated me In the most kind and
considerate manner, so I told him
that to avoid further trouble for
him I would resign as soon as I
knew for sure that Mr. Martin would
be in the field.
This was only one of many ways
I was given to understand that I
was not wanted in tho position I
occupied, since I failed to agree
with the Liberals in the last provincial elections— both Mr. Templeman and- Senator Riloy at different
times telling mo In an insulting manner that I should have beon fired,.. .
I have always held the opinion
that a man should not allow his occupation to Influence his opinions on
public questions, and that outside ol
working hours he should allow no
one to Interfere with his free action.
This, I was mado to feel in - many
ways, was not what the Liberals,of
Victoria expected of me and this difference of opinion resulted In my ro-
slgnatlon. j i j |
I have no personal grievance for
having lost my position and no personal ends to serve In acquainting
you with this, but lt seems to me
that there Is a principle Involved
that should be of interest to all
worklngmen. If an employer, whether a private Individual or a government, can dictate to a man what
stand he should take on publlc questions, there ts littio difference '•«•
tween his condition and actual slavery. So I submit these facts to
you for what you may think they,
are worth.
I cannot give you tho namo of tho
official that I have spoken of, as I
wish to give him no trouble, and I
nm sntlsfled that he acted only under pressure from the Liberal! association or somo such source. I wish
the blamo, If any to full on the right
I am, yours respectfully,

BERLIN,    Nov. lO.-The   opening
of tho debate in the Reichstag today
oa Emperor William's interviow,   as
published in the Loudon Daily Tolo-
giraph, found tho chamber fuller than
it hus evor boen bel'oro uu tho occa-
siou   of an   important debate.    All
the ministers, with the exception ol'NOTICE EXPIRES ON OCTOBER 3
Foreign Secretary Vou Schueu   were
present.     The royal, diplomutio aud
publlc   galleries wero crowded     and
thoro was not a   vacant sent ou tho
chamber benches.
Tho iutcri-ellutions regarding!   this
interviow wiiich has been characterized as highly -indiscreet, wero taken
up also by Herr Bussermanu, a National Liberal,  who opening the do-
' bate, expressed a hearty dosiro for
tho contluuunce of friendly relations
with foreign countries and said ho
thought that only a small proportion of the German peoplo wus unfriendly to Great Britain. Tho personal element in foreign politics wus
. dungorous, ho declared, und tho high-
I er a man stood the greater caro ho
should take of his utterances.     He-
' sponsible oillciais should examine his
remarks.     The National liberals did
j not desire tho resignation of Chancellor     Vou   Buelow, but they dod
[want tho elimination of the personal
clement from the conduct of foreign
affairs ns its continuance was bounc'
to bring failure. Great Britain had
been stirred to greater naval preparations by tho Emperor's utterances, he said, and Germany's relations had become worse with woll
nigh all the principal powers, but
especially with France, Russia, Japan and Great Britain.
Herr Singer, Socialist, declared
that Emperor William ougiht to bo
brought before a high court and
tried for treason because of this interview. Herr Singor was greeted
by Sociulist applause.

BERLIN, Nov. 10— It is expected
that the debate on the subject ol
the emperor's interview which was
recently published in a Loudon paper will be exceedingly livoly, probably taking up two days in the
Reichstag. Chancellor Von Buelow,
it is understood, will make his explanation soou aftor the opening of
the debate.
Tho feeling among the various par-
Socialists who have called 200 mass
ties is strong, and also among the
meetings for this evening to protest
against "absolutist-." Members of
other parties in preparation Ior today's interpellation regarding measures that will hereafter prevent similar occurrence, met ut tho Reich
rtag yesterday and discussed privately their respective attitudes and nom
muted speakers to express their
views in the debate.
Herr Bassormon, speaking for tho
National Liberals, suid the party did
not desire the resignation of Chun
cellor Von Buelow, but it wanted tho
elimination of personal clement from
the conduct of foreign affairs and
tlio observance of provisions of tho
constitution relating to the interference of the Emperor therein without
the cn-oporation of the chancellor.
Chancellor Von Buelow, who explained the circumstances preceding
tho telegraph interview, declared ho
had deeded to remain as ch . cellor.
but he could not suy for '.,_— long.
Herr Singer, Soolc'.urt, declared
that Germany hat; sunk low ln foreign opinion through the incapacity
of persons In responsible positions,
in the constitutional composition of
Germany, tho Emperor was tho lirst
of state, and if If nnothor servant of
state, he declared, had done such   a
