T. V.. Jernigan, Consul General
nl Shanghai, in Consular Reports
for January, gives an interesting
account of the status of labor and
wages in China—a country in which,
among otlier peculiarities, the .lowest wages are paid to labor, and the
supply of labor is larger in proportion lo the demand than any other
country on the face of the globe.
Any one endeavoring to study the
limitations of that much-abused,
term "necessaries of life," or desiring to solve the problem ot the least
cost of existence for a human being,
may find aid in this paper, of which
an abstract follows.
A Chinese laborer will save money on wages that would hardly be
suflicient to supply the absolute
necessities of an American laborer.
This is made possible by the cheapness of the vegetable diet on whicli
he is content to live, the small cost
of house accommodation (several
families will subdivide one room of
a house, and live in contentment in
it), and the low price paid for clothing, which is made of the coarsest
cottons. But the cheapness of labor
in China does not mean that the
products of that labor aro inferior
in quality. The Japanese laborer,
receiving higher wages, is more artistic in his work; his productions
tire more finished, and in dyes
and in the blending of colors he is
superior to his Chinese rival: but in
substantia] and lasting quality the
1 atter's products are fully equal,
and in some instances superior, to
those of the former.
There is in Chinese character a
conservatism which hns discouraged
progress, The principle "Let well
enough alone" lias been adhered to
under the mistaken idea that "well
enough" was the best. But in China
this adherence to custom, this opposition to change, has tilled the
empire with an impoverished population. The cheapness and small
denominations of Chinese currency
and the low juice of she diet and
clothing of the Chinese laborer are
evidence of non-progressiveness, but
it should not be inferred from this
that capacity for progress is absent
, from lhe Chinese character.
The following wages for different
handicrafts in China are quoted.
Tiie symbol F indicates that, in
addition to money, food is supplied
as part of the wage; where this is
absent no food is supplied. The
wages are presented in their equivalent of U. ^. currency: Blacksmith, 13 cents per day, F; brass:
worker, Hi cents per day, F; barber,
ii tents per day, P; native bootmaker, 10 cents per day, F; foreign
bootmaker, ifo.lW per month, F;
I nun boo cabinet-maker, 11 cents per
day, F; bricklayer, 10 cents per
day, F; native compositor, $5.28 per
month, F; foreign compositor, $7.92
lo $15.84 per month, F; carpenter, 11 cents per day, F; cabinetmaker, 13 eenls per day, F; coolie,
18 eenis per day; native bookbinder.
$4.22 per month, F; foreign bookbinder, $ti.34; lithogaapher, $10.56;
furniture-polisher, in cents, F;
native tailor, 10 cents per day, F;
foreign tailor, $6.84 per month, F;
pressman, $fi.'*4, F; native coachman, $8,17 per month, F; foreign
coachman, $li,34 per month, Fj
native houseboy, $2.11 per month,
F; foreign houseboy,$4.75 F; cotton-
mill machinist, 11 cents to 22 cents
per day; collon- factory hands, 18
eenls per day.
Ii will be seen that the practice
of making food a part of compensation for labor is common; that
foreign labor, without exception,
gets better pay than native labor,
and that foreign compositors get
higher pay than laborers in any
other occupations named. Thelow-
est daily wages are paid to barbers,
and the lowest monthly wages to
unlive houseboys.

Civic Ownership.
A committee of the City Council
of Seattle has, after exhaustive research and enquiry, brought in a
report recommending Ihat the city
acquire and operate its own electric
lighting, for public and private purposes, and also a waterworks systi m.
The report sets forth al some length
the desirability of such civic ownership, and .-tales reasons why the
city could operate such concerns
more cheaply than ti private coi por-
ation. Following is an extract from
the report:
The facts arrived at are the result of
considerable correspondence of a most
gratifying nature with iiiunj honorable
mayors and secretaries of eastern and
westren cities. Your committee have
overwhelming evidence of u practical
nature, which, if embraced, will curtail
the expenses of lighting the cily tu less
than half thecurroiitpricesou last year's
contract, and at the same time bu paying
for a plant, uud thut tne Ccdur ltiver
water system, and the municipal ownership of a light plant in full force, will,
at no distant period, wipe out our present bonded debt, and dually bring in a
revenue to relieve our overburdetied
people of debt.
Your committee were greatly surprised to sec the extravagant imiiyin by
contract in other cities. Wheat, corn,
cotton, etc., arc nearly uniform till over
the land, while electric lighting baa a
margin. We herewith append un average of eleven plants, operated by contract at $205,46 per arc light, against the
municipal lighting ol those same eleven
cities, the average being ijUl.SI per arc
light per year, and w ith bettor lights.
It was quite natural thut your committee sliuiil 1 ask the question " How is
it that public plains arc able to make
Sueh tremendous savings over contract
prices?'' The answer is as follows:
First—A public plant does not have
to pay dividends on watered stock.
Second—It docs not have to pay divid-
ends even on the actual investment.
Third—A city, having its corporation
counsel, need not employ attorneys or
lobbyists, subsri ibe tu campaign funds,
ur buy up its rivals.
Fourth—It dues not have to udvtrtise
nor solicit business.
Filth—lt frequently saves by combining other departments.
Tbo Mayor of Dunkirk says: "Our
cily owns ils water plant, and the groat
saving comes from the eity'it owning
ami operating both pi,nits. Mo extra
labor is required but a lineman. The
same engineers, liremen, and superintendent operate both plants.
Your coinmittee, in view of these considerations, cannot expect lighting companies to furnish as cheaply as the nut-!
niciptility, but, at the same lime, feel
that contracts have exceeded just remuneration, and in many instances have
stooped to extortion.
The Columbian, in referring to the
above, says that live years ago,
when New Westminster "decided
upon civic ownership in these matters of prime Importance lo n city's
welfare, there was some strenuous
opposition to the scheme, but il is
pleasing tostnlethat Unit opposition
has been overcome, and ii would be
hard, indeed, to find a citizen now
opposing the operation of these undertakings, which, admittedly, cost
the city yet, so far us the waterworks are concerned,;: considerable
amount, but then we have an ample
and pure water supply, and an electric lighting system second lo none
in America, at ti moderate cost to
consumers, and both of these enterprises, in time, will he highly remunerative to the taxpayers. Thus,
it will be seen that Westminster,
though comparatively a small cily,
was and is far in advance of much
more pretentious ones in these important respects."

Of Canadian produce the exports
were $100,011,001), ngninst $100,-
000,000 in 1895 With the exception of 1895 the duly collected mi
imports is the smallest total since
1886, hut the percentage of duty is
more than 1 percent, greater than
in 1805, showing thnt theoperalion
of the tariff is more burdensome
than before the revision, as it has
been asserted all along it would he.
The trade returns for June show
the exports to have been $11,081,-
281, and the imports $0,088,000,.
with duty collected on $5,514,000
amounting to $1,,572,000, The exports show a falling off compared
with the average of the last three
years during this month, nnd the
same is true of the imports,

Progressive Tendency of Unionism.
During the past decade the trade-
union has found "common ground"
upon many new ideas. Whether
ihey arc till correct or not we will
not now discuss. Suffice it to say,
they evidence flexibility, expansion
ami the progressive tendency. Such
are nationalization of what are
thought to heinevil.nlile monopolies,
mines, railroads, telephones, telegraph', municipalization oi street
ears, light, water; abolition of land
monopoly; abolition of money monopoly; direct legislation; Australian
ballot, and others. Ail of these had
the trade union endorsed and advocated, showing conclusively its
limits are not fixed, and that it is
ready -must adopt that which is
acceptable to its members. Its present aims and methods are well
known; it will adopt others just as
soon ns the education it so
widely dissemimiles levels down
the hills and tills up the gaps in
the minds of its members. Its
possibilities are bound only by lack
of knowledge and the non-unionist.
No criticism of the trade-union can
be made thnt does not apply to the
working class. When the time arrives that results ean be achieved
by new methods, they will not be
new to the trade-union. And this
is why we unite.—American Feder-
ationist.
Tlic Last to Laugh.
Journalists laugh  at Coxeyism.
The  laboring people   sympathise,
and  in  the end il is lhe hitler who
will prevail.   We are not unfamiliar
wilh  similar petitions in boots in
London.    Lazarusshowinghissores
in Trafalgar Square, and tlieuiiein-1
ployed 1 ram pled I heir shoes off their
feel in 1886-87 demonstrating iheir
desire for  work,      London newspapers, with one or two exceptions,
scoffed  and  flouted  the agitators.
The  Metropolitan police broke up
tho   procession   and   cleared   the
square amid the'livers of Dives and
his myrmidons, John Burns and
Cunningham  Grnhame were flung j
into   prison,   and   for  a time there
was peace   -lhe peace and silenceof
the grave.     But in two short years [
London   elected   ils   first   county
council, and John Bnrns,fresh from ,:
prison, became the influential mem-.
ber of the new governing body. The j
men at Trafalgar Square became
the rulers of Spring Gardens, and i
the greatest movement of oui'time
in the direction of municipal socialism is being conducted at this um'-
ment in  the name of the   London
council  by  the  representatives of
the army of discontent which bivouacked   at    the   base of Nelson's
column  only nine years ago.—-Review of Reviews.
Many new-papers are demanding
the withdrawal of Sewall from the
Democratic ticket on account of his
record in the treatment of seamen.
"■In this respect," says the Coast
Seamen's Journal, "he is neither
better nor worse than olhers in lhe
same business, the apparent difference being due merely to the fact
ihat Mr. Si-wall's business is more
extensive than that of many other
American shipowners, The position
of Mr. Hanna in the Republican
party is analogous, so far as seamen
and shipping is concerned, and oven
more so in regard to his relative
power iu the party counsels. Every
vole cast in the interest of either of
these men is an indorsement of tlte
existing conditions of seamen—a
vindication of lhe principle of slavery, brutality and inhumanity in so
f;ir as ii applies lo the American
seaman. If the present widespread
circulation of the Red Record ac-
(•oniplj.-hes anything toward the
denial oTttTftt-principle it will have
j achieved a legitimate end to which
neither parties nor persons can object wii html abrogating every claim
to public respect.''

According to the Canadian Mining Manual for 1806, during the
year 1805 the output of minerals
has exceeded, by careful estimates,
$22,500,000,as compared wilh Hi),-
'.100,0(10 during the previous year.
'I'he extent and growth of that lino
of production show not only its importance lo lhe Dominion at lho
present lime, bul its destined influence on our national development. Coal heads the list with an
oui pul of $7,77-1,178, and gold conies
second, close to the two million
mark. Nickel, petroleum and silver
are each above $1,000,000. The
list above the million mark docs
not include the output of building
i material, which naturally occupies
• an important place'amongCanadian
minerals. The Manual records 410
I mining companies, of which 178 are
i organized lo develop mines in British C du n'jia.

A telegram was read from the Provincial Secretary statin.* that the I...tin

From Wm, Crossan, complaining that
some person had opened bis gate and let

From C, C. McKenzic, asking permis-
sion to build an addition l» the rear of
the frame building occupied by Steven-

undermined.
Aid. Planta was In fnvor of granting
the petition, especially aa the proposed
enlargement would not exceed L'5 por
cent, of the value of the building, which
he claimed was allowed under the Fire
Limit By-law.
Aid, Morton, while lie claimed there
had been no proof furnished that the
ground was undermined, moved thai the
petition be granted, providing the provisions of  the  by-law  wen mplled

said be would or would not, bul simply
that he would "see about it." lie considered the shipping nf the powder from
the city wharves a grout menace to public Bafety and thai it was his duty to see
that the by-law waB enforced—hence his
action.
Aid. Wilson moved thai the action of
the Mayor lie end.used. He thought it
wus time enough for a magistrate to

and theCouneil bad full authority under
the Municipal Act to puss the by-law.
If Magistrate Simpson would not act in

could do so under the by-law,
Aid, Planta said betook exception to
the attack on Magistrate Simpson by
Aid. Wilson, as he thought bis only
motive was to save the city eScpente.
It might also bo proven that the powder wns consigned u> a colliery or a railway company.
The Mayor explained Ihat Magistrate
bad suid that neither the existing bylaw or any other could prevent the
Hamilton 1'ow.It Co, from shipping
their powder us at present,
Aid. Wilson denied making any "attack" on Magistrate Simpson, lie had

There is listed us engaged to load coul j
(now en route and to be loaded) from
Newcastle nnd Sydney, ",2 vessels with a
capacity of about 106,000 tons. This looks
like ii formidable amount, but when it
is ascertained that il will be fully six
months before these :',2 vessels will hnve
nrrived, this will be an average of 17,000
tons per month, which is barely sufficient for our requirements; and our market
