LABOUR COMMISSION
(Continued  from Tago One.)
COAL MINERS.
An Important feature of the report is tho finding ot the commission
on the contention that miners should
be allowed to appoint outsiders on
their gas committees, The difficulty
of the position of the miner who nets
nn u gas committee iu referred to. It
in nni(i that Buoh a miner, if he report h the mine free ot gas la exposed
to the sneers ot a certain section ot
IiIh fellow workers who believe ho is
carrying favor with the management,

efficient inspection would be made by
employees actually engaged in tho
mine and who would understand the
conditions nf tho mine in which they
labor nml would also huve a personal

kept dear 'ef gas thus feeling more
responsibility In regard to the efficiency of this Inspection thun mere.
outsiders would bo apt to do, It i»
recomm<9ndod that the members     oi
tbe gas i mittoe bo eleoted nn    at
present from tho employees engaged
in the mine, but be selected by a pit
head ballot of tho miners.
in the cost of supplies the commission find tbe miners haven real grievance and that the operator should
imt be permitted to derive a profit
from them and recommend that employers he forced to furnish ull supplies at cost.
'I be commissioners report in favor
of operators being obliged by statute
to erect wash houses, the cost of
maintenance to be borne by a small
charge on the miners. Collective
bargaining is approved and various
ree immendatlons made regarding
minor matters. The commission ad-
vis.' |]u, installntuon of speaking tub
es and telephones in ull shnfts and

Thc commission reports that conditions arc satisfactory In metalliferous mining. The agreement In force
known as the "Boundary Scale" is
approved by the miners and operators
SIKH'    EMPLOYEES.
The "Factories Vet" is not proper-
Ij enforced, nor the "Simps Regula -
tion Act." \ .rlous suggestions were
made as to tbe appointment of women Inspectors and tbe extension of

Don't be satisfied with
anything less than an
Edison Phonograph
Throughout the history of sound reproduction Mr. Edison
has blazed the trail. Every important step lias been conceived first in his mind. He is the acknowledged master
of acoustics throughout the world. His recent triumph is
the Blue Amberol Record.
It came, after countless experiments, with all its strength of volume, sweetness of quality and tailing endurtuice. To bring out the
remarkable tone of this new
record demanded a new reproducer. He invented it thc
Diamond - Point Reproducer.
With it there is none of the annoyance of changing the needle
after each record. The diamond
is as much a part of the phonograph as its beautiful cabinet.

Certain muniolpal regulations   eon-

The commission recommends the

THIRTEEN
RUSSIANS
FINED
After having been turned back hy
the locnl authorities thirteen Russian
nnd Bulgar laborers managed to
surreptitiously pass the boundary,
nnd got oil the train at Bear Creek,
.Mr. Malcolm it.J. Reid, superintendent of immigration, who was notified
immediately set two men of his men
there. The thirteen were nrrested
and taken to Kevelstoke where Bupt,
Reid personally conducted the prose-'
cution on behalf of his department
against them nt a special Bession of
Magistrate Hamilton's court. The
j foreigners were defended by Mr. G.S.;
McCarter.
Bupt. Reid argued that there were
already a number of men out of work
in British Columbia. Thc superintcn-
i dent declared that he was resolved
■ to strictly enforce the regulations.
'I he prosecution was conducted in
view ol tin' new order-in-council, pro-
hlblting both skilled and unskilled
workmen from entering tlie country.
The magistrate found tlio men guilty and sentenced each to puy a fine
of 875, Tbe fines were paid, thc total being 8075, Chief Parry, of Revelstoke, actively co-operated with
the officials of the department. This
is the second attempt the men have
made to enter thc country, as Supt.
Reid's officials  were  able  to prove.
There is one court that always ad-
| heres to  its  decision—court  plnBter.
Dr. C. Alphonso Smith of the Uni- .
I versity of Virginia, in u recent after-
dinner     speech,   told   thc    following
story:—
"A   Creole  friend  of   nine  was (riving French   lessons to an   Englishman,
; who ln     turn taught   him   English,
; After a  lesson  one  day  tin   English-
i man said:
" 'Come round to see me some time
and talk English with me. That's the
«ay to learn  it.'
" 'I will  come viz much  plaisir,'  responded  the  Creole, 'hut  I  have    ze
• fear zat I cockroach upon your time.'
" 'You mean hencrouch,' corrected
j the  Englishman.
" 'Ah, yes, I always get ze genders

The recommendations contained in
tlie i.epoi't, of the Provincial Labor
Commission will give rise to much
discussion, dealing us they do with
several of the most prominent problems thai ure before the country Today. Tin1 report covers a wide held
and is sure to  exeite  varied  opinions
Inside and outside the legislature, A
feature which will arouse great, interest is thai which urges the establish
ment of a system of compulsory
stall' Insurance for workmen who bus
tain Injuries, Such Insurance, it. is
su gcsttd, should he managed by fl
board, The employer would be taxed
a percentage of his puy roll bused or.
tin' risk attaching to the particular
ii bs in which he is engaged,    in
i! vent   of  a  workman sustaining
injuries uf u character which prevent
his working for a time, he is to re-
eelve so much compensation weekly ,
the amount to he based on his eurn-
ings, An Insurance scheme of this
character will require very careful
working out 'the problem of compulsory state insurance against nc-
cidents to workmen is a very big one
It is found in practice tbat the work
men themselves object to paying for
their Insurance more than employers.
Most employers take out policies
with the employers' liability companies and protect themselves against
claims in this manner. But workmen who find a regular deduction
from thoir wages for tin' purposes of
insurance of any Kind dislike that
form uf compulsion enormously. Further information as tu the exact
scope of the recomtnendatii ns on this
point will be welcomeu.

The following suggestions have
been made with the idea of Improv
ing or enlarging tbe power plant:—
(i i Tu si lengthen the present twin
runner turbino to enable it to be
used at Uu' maximum head and there
hy increase it.- output.
Upon giving this matter close consideration it dues not appear to be
at all I lie best, nor in the end the

the Hume would huve t< be strength
encd iui.l about :!00 feet of new flume
added  which  would cost approximate

I nine would have to be securely anch-
; ored by  means Of a concreted wall or
Otherw Be,  as      '.he    extra      pressure
Would   have  a   greater   tendeney       to
project   the   whole  wurbine  forward ,
furthermore, tbe shafting, belts, etc.,
Would have to carry a load considerably  'a excess    of their rated capacity,  which  would  be  very  dangerous ,
both generators belted to this would
ilsu lie overloaded,     and this could
iiul   a,   doil •  at a   cist   of      less  than
seven or eight  thous ad  d dlars. and
no permanent   improvement would  be

I"u loubtedly from the standpoint

to the expense and upkeep of other
auxiliaries, Our experience with thc
water power development during the
past four years, Indicates that this
can give fairly reliable service when
operated at the maximum bead(more
especially during Winter) our troub -
les since the erection of the dum giving a head of 7:1 feet, have been cans
ed by tho lower.ng of the water when
using the old plant during the winter. Too small n blowoff valve on tho
largest, unit, defects of the gate gear
and thrust bearing on this turbine, j
and anchor ice forming iu thc tliimo
under pressure during cold weather . |
The installation of this new unit
would permit of keeping one or other of the flumes dry during the cold
est periods, and at other times both
could   be  kept   under  pressure,    which
would pres?rve the flumes and permit
of either unit being ready for im ■
mediate use.
The estimated lowest, stages of
water is 930 cubic feet of flow per
second, which under a head of 7:t ft.
is equivalent to approximately  '_0ii0
horse power, and 1 would recommend
the installation of the following machinery   which  when   running  at    lull
load  would develop all  the  power ob-
tainubl" from the river at this stage:
One  Francis Turbine     Iloriz
ontal   shaft   iu    Spiral  casing,  double arrangement for
I 100 h.p.  with full size blow
off     valve  S s,0011.00
One oil  pressure governor...    1,000.00
One 750 kwt. direct connected
:i phase generator with BWlt
Cbboard   and  exciter           s, 110(1.00

with  tailrace   	
800 fui new lift, flume and
rehunding portions of that

One blow-off valve nnd installing  on  existing    unit    :t,0OO.0O
f> ,0ni 1.00
3,500.00
8.500.00
Total   $32,000.00
If this unit is installed one of the
generators at present belted to the
old turbine could possibly he disposed of for about -s1000 or -SI.".imi a«
it is a modern machine and in good
condition, the belt ami mill type gov
enor in connection with this same
plant may also lie disposed of, but I
doubt if the old Wheel casing, shafting, etc., would be worth the eost of
resurrecting  to  anyone.
The gas engine and 150 kwt. generator I  would  piopose     leaving       as
they   are.   unless   a   reasonable    offer
•ould   be  obtained  fur  the  same.

conditions prevailing at this plant, 1

that   if  i|es;re,l   an  Independent  expert
opin on could be obtained, and would

itlng the expense ..f installing
in aie i     unit, anymore   than other
ratepayers win, are anxious tu     see
the plant continue in operation as a
profitable undertaking,   instead   of  being   an  expense  tu tbe city.

CHRISTIAN
SOCIALISM
In Whatshan Valley
During a reasldanoe ol six months
in the Whatshan Valley 1 have taken
coiiHlilcrablc interest in features ol
tho community life hero which iip-
poar (o mo to approach more nearly
to Christian Socialism than any other form of Municipal government of
which I have boon able td get particulars. I use tho word Christian do-
Olallsm lor any semblance of Soci.il-
iHin has its baBls, in this Instance,
upon tho religious doctrines ami Interpretation of Christian duty by tbe
people.
To place the matter In the nest
light it would appeal to mo that a
reference should bo made to the Val-
loy which affords such a good jppur-
tunlty for tbe carrying out or sciufl
of the socialistic principles to wnlch
I desire to refer. Then possibly it
might be of Interest to note some -
thing of the people who praotlca
these principles,
THK WHATSHAN   VALLBY,
Thc valley gets its name from      a,
lake or rather n  pair Of  lakes   which
are in total     length about 18  miles,
and  situated  about  ona  mile  north
of  the  present  settlement,      Between
the settlement and the lake is a beau
tiful  level stretch  of  land      reaching
just to the lake shore.   To say tbat
the lake abounds In Ush bo putting I
it mildly.    It simply  swarms      with
lish.
The  valley   is about six  or     eight
! miles  in  length  being  forked  at   the
! north end, one fork stretching tothe
! lake and  the other  running a    much
greater distance up Barnes Creek. Up
both forks game abounds    and   the
timber  is of excellent  quality.
Thc valley is reached     by leaving

THK TEI.El'HONK 8Y8TKM.
Coining along the valley I noticed
a telephone line along the road, and
thinking this was a government undertaking, I made some inquiries and
learned that it was a community undertaking. When tho system was put
in each member contributed his share
of the cost of materia) und all joined
I in tbo work of construction without
hiring nny expert electiicians. Tho
result Is that each household is on
the phone lino but there is no "een-
tral." There is a code of rlngsignals
and each house answers to its own
call just as telegraph offices do their
respective calls.

H.THK PEOPLE.
The present settlers i re one of the
many sects of German Mennonites.
Their grand fathers left Germany to
settle upon lands thrown open by
the Russian government 11T> years
|ngo but owing to political persecu-
! tions, they in turn left Russia forty
years ago and settled south eost of
Winnipeg, fr.>m which district they
again moved to the Whatshan Valley
in order that they might establish a
colony in a more eijuublc climate.
With their choice they appear to be
all well satisfied ns they have the
