Crimes of Legislative and Municipal Bodies.
Tendency of Concentrated Wealth.
Depredatory Instincts Not
Confined to Individuals.
It may be taken for granted that
any condition that leads to a disproportionate distribution of the
profits of production is economically wrong. A proportionately
equitable distribution of profits
must meet a just recompense for
each force and energy expended in
the process of producing a recompense adjusted in proportion to the
value of the energy to the finished
whole. Failing to*do this, the distribution of. profits necessarily accrues more to the one factor than
to the other, and becomes in fact
an unjust distribution. Under
such a condition, economic gravity becomes unbalanced, and social
disorder follows. Individual holdings (capital in variuus forms)
grow larger and larger, presently
assuming colossal proportions,
while poverty sinks lower in the
scale. The per capita of wealth on
the part of the masses grows smaller, while the real wealth concentrates itself, causing an added injustice to the poor in increased
rates of taxation in its various
forms, for the increase in price of
any article controlled by a centralized power, or monopoly, is in essence a taxation on its consumer.
In direct taxation, that is on land
or improvements, the inevitable
tendency is a rise of rate when taxable wealth is concentrated, because such wealth loses its full
value, for assessable purposes, in
that it becomes diffused and disguised in a number of unapproachable channels. This loss of value
it oc:nsions for assessable returns
results, as stated, in increased rates
of taxation, which necessarily falls
on the middle and poorer classes.
This is the foundation of the discontent which prevails among
American masses today. The condition and consequence is a far-
reaching one, since its corollaries
extend on the one hand to the
depths of misery and crime, on the
other to the apex of luxury and
idleness, and again to crime, for
these two antipodes of asocial state
have ever been the chief progenitors of that result. Hunger and
misery brought about by a constantly narrowing demand for adequately recompensed toil, and a
constantly increasing toil for the
necessaries of life; luxury and idleness, the result of a superabundance of wealth—each saps the morality of a social fabric and begets
crime, the one from a desperation
born of despair, the other from a
spirit of immunity and power.
The consequences to the very
poor of an unbalanced economic
system are of the first importance
since it is precisely the class which
is least able to stand them. An
economic system which levies toll
on the producer, who is as well a
consumer, infallibly arrays the
middle class against the final
payee of all forms of toil—the very
poor. When taxes rise rents rise,
and the holder of property, not always himself rich, suffers no perceptible loss. When monopoly corners the staples of life, the middleman's prices rises in proportion to
the monopoly's ukase and the very
poor are the chief losers. Wages
always tending to the lowest point,
the wage-earner is the first to suffer
in tinu-so f panic and over-production; besides making labor the
chief sufferer from the concentration of invested capital, the very
fact of capital concentrating itself
causing labor also to concentrate at
the same point in numbers sufficient to over-glut the market. ThiB
is not chargeable to capital, since
labor should see its own disadvantage; but as a result proper, it is
chargeable to the fact of concentration.
The depredatory instinct of power is not exhibited in individuals
only, but in law-making bodies
and nations as well. Legislatures
and municipal bodies, having the
welfare of the people in their keeping, show examples of the instinct when they legislate for the
benefit  of   the  few   against   the
many. When this is done power
is the impelling cause. Contempt
for a people's welfare, as shown by
excessive rates of taxation, lack of
safeguards to protect the state or
municipality's income, grants of
privileges or subsidies to corporations or individuals, are no less
crimes against the poor because
they seemingly rob the poor only
in the abstract, for the poor in the
end are the payees in higher rates
of rent, etc.
The increased profits to the owners of labor-saving devices is another cause of misery to the toiler,
notwithstanding that labor-saving
devices were felt to be destined to
ameliorate the condition of the
masses. That they were so meant
to act no sane man doubts, and
that they will so act in the fullness of time is a certainty. Just
now they emphasize the glut in the
market of labor, while adding
wealth to their owners. The remedy lies in diveriing the increased
and unjust profits into the proper
channels, and the only means of
doing so is by taxation. As all
forms of taxation are in the end
paid by the poor, and as all taxation wrongfully withheld by wealth
are paid by the poor in increased
rates, either direct or in increased
prices for necessaries of life, the
remedy will he adequate in so far
as it touches labor-saving devices.
By means of a proper tax on their
increased producing power their
mission of lessenning the burden of
the masses will be accomplished.
The remedy here suggested embodies the principle of just taxation. Taxation which merely falls
on the shoulders of the middle
class is shifted to the shoulders of
the poor, and defeats its own aim.
The taxation which will avoid this
dire result must be of a form
which will bear hardest on the unearned profits of capital—that is
on the proportion of profits which
capital unjustly withholds from
labor in its various forms. So long
as this is not done the concentration of wealth will continue, and
the burden of responsibility, lifted
from the el iss which reaps the
greater benefit,liglits on the shoulders of the class which reaps none.
When this is dono the burden is

Naiiaimo's Crack Band Receives
Flattering Recognition.
Possess Ability and Technique That
Is Seldom Met With, Says
an Eastern Authority.
Its History.
(From the Musical Times and Band Journal,
Philadelphia und Chicago.)
This band was organized March
23, 1880, under the name of the
"Nanaimo, Jr., Brass Band," by
Mr. George Lee, under rather peculiar circumstances, five of the members being dissenters from the Nanaimo Brass Band, which was the
first established in the Province of
British Columbia.
With considerable difficulty they
got ten members together, and succeeded afterwards in raising the
number to sixteen. No rapid
strides towards perfection were obtained, but the extinction of the
old band was one of the things accomplished.
Two years the charge of the band
was given to Mr. J. D. Halverson,
who made numerous changes, including that in the name. The organization was then speedily augmented and strengthened by the
addition of several good performers, and today the Silver Cornet
Band is without doubt one of the
best in British Columbia.
During the past four years open-
air concerts have been given twice
each month throughout the summer, and in the winter the Opera
House has been obliged on many
occasions. That the performances
were fully appreciated by the public is evidenced by the large audiences.
Another token of the interest
manifested by the citizens of Nanaimo in their band is to be found
in the recent subscription which
was taken up for the purpose of
purchasing a new and complete
silver-plate set of J. W. Pepper's
Premier Band Instruments.
The list was headed by Mr. W.
M. Langton, of the Magnet Stores,
with the handsome sum of $250,
with the New Vancouver Co., $100,
the Miners' Union, $100, followed
by Mr. S. L. Robins (superintendent of the mines), A. Haslam, M.
P., Mayor Quennell, Dr. McKech-
nie, J. H. Pleace, and Geo. Norris,
with two good round figures each.
The balance was made up by numerous contributions of smaller
The members of the band are
greatly pleased with the new instruments, and consider them a
great help and a splendid acquisition to the band.
The band plays a good class of
music and is well "up to date"
with the popular music of the day.
While all are good performers, several of the members have superior
ability, and possess technique that
is seldom met with in any amateur
Mr. David Galloway (Eb Bass),
is a well-known musician in the
state of Washington, particularly
around Puget Sound. Previous to
his location in Washington he was
a member of Bauer's Popular Hand
of Soranton, Pa., playing euphonium for many years.
Mr. A. J. Malicord (euphonium
player), a native of France, is another valuable member of the hand.
He performed under the direction
of Michel Van Hemoortel, the famous Belgium composer in the
Societe Philainonique of Maubeuge
and Fanfare de Sous-Le-Bois-Mau-
beuge, North France, for five years.
It may be safely said that he is
without a rival upon his instrument in British Columbia.
Mr. J. 1). Halverson, bandmaster,
is a cornet player of exceptional
ability, having played leading cornet under Prof. Graves, with Martell & Co's Consolidated Shows, the
season of 1884, which traveled
through the New England States.
He has been connected with different bands and orchestras throughout the States of Iowa and Colorado. On September 11, 1892, he
won the prize in the cornet solo
competition, offered by the Foresters at their reunion in the city of
Vancouver, B. C. His cornet solos
are always well received, and invariably elicit an encore.
In December, 1894, when Lord
and Lady Aberdeen visited Nanai
mo, the band headed the procession from the railway depot to
Dallas Square. His Excellency in
the course of his address, said that
never before had he heard a band
march and play so long without
stopping for rest.
In the evening when the Vice-
Regal party was leaving for the
East, Lady Aberdeen requested that
Mr. Halverson be presented to her,
and she then congratulated him
upon the fine appearance of the
band and accorded her thanks for
the sweet music rendered during the
course of the day.
The following is a list of the
members and instrumentation:
John Mahrer, piccolo; Charles
Rosco, Eb clarinet; Ernest Caval-
ero, John Lee, Bb clarinets; C. C.
Halverson, Eb cornet; J. D. Halverson, solo Bb cornet (bandmaster); P. Clauss, Thos. Booker, Bb
cornets; Amos Lee, Charles Wilson,
James Cowie, Edward Gibson, Eb
altos; A. L. Bauers, Robert Rivers,
Bb tenors; John Basso, John Don-
Ian, trombones; A. J. Malicord,
euphonium: David Galloway,
Richard Edwards, Eb basses; Geo.
Chapman, snare drum; Geo. Lee,
bass drum.
The front page of the cover of the
journal from which the above account is taken is adorned with excellent half-tone photographs of the
members of the band, numbering 21.

Quelled by H. M. S. Comas, Assisted bv
the U. S. Warship Alert.
H. M. S. Comus returned to Victoria Sunday from her southern
mission, arriving in time to participate in the general jubilation by
the ships in port in honor of the
anniversary of Coronation Day.
As will be remembered, the Comus,
shortly after her arrival at this
station from England, was dispatched south under sealed orders.
These proved to be that of assisting
the U. S. warship Alert in quelling
a disturbance in Corinto which had
arisen over a number of Nicaraguan
and other rebels arming themselves
and committing outrages in the
town. Both lay with their port
sides on the town, and at-a moment's notice could have utterly
destroyed the place. Each landed
a party of men and took formal
possession of all public buildings,
while the disturbers, frightened at
the prospect of trouhle, flew in every
direction, clearing off in small boats
and in every manner that opportunity afforded. The two rebel chiefs
fled in a schooner to San Salvador,
thus escaping further trouble. So
easily was the disturbance quelled
that the two cruisers had no difficulty in securing possession of all
the weapons, which were of the most
antequated description. The Comus remaided in Corinto six weeks,
during which, after the first disorder, there was no further annoyance from the rebels. Reports have,
however, since been received of a
threatened renewal of hostilities;
but as the Royal Arthur is now
bound south, further trouble will
doubtless be prevented. England
has a double interest in Nicaragua,
for, apart from what is owing her
subjects, there is a big national
debt forthcoming.
The Comus encountered extremely rough weather from San Francisco, and when off the Cape sighted what appeared to be the wreck
of a DO-foot schooner. Wreckage
was strewn around, but the only
thing distinguishable was a green-
painted starboard anchor buoy with
a grass hawser attached. It was
on Saturday afternoon when the
wreckage was passed, and as it was
valueless the officers of the Comus
did nothing more than take observations. There was nothing to

The Toronto World's Montreal
correspondent says he learns upon
excellent authority that Lord Aberdeen lost no time, as soon as it became known that Laurier had carried the country, in recommending
the Liberal leader ftp Her Majesty
for knighthood, and that it is the
impression in vice-regal circles that
when the new Canadian prime
minister takes his place at the
Speaker's right in the House of
Commons he will do so under the
title of Sir Wilfred Laurier.

From long-bold posts oul rang the cry
The battle i" begin;
Each warrior then quick strung bis bo-
The victory to win.
Each stood upon bis vantage ground
To bravely face tin- hour
And pierce tbe armour's weaker links
Of bis opposing power.
The bearded chief, with laurels dim,
Hid younger metal try.
And soon did claim tluit his career
Political should die.
Then rose a hand 'neath prestige, power,
To grasp at victory ;
But it wns shunned by nil tbe throng
That lovetli liberty.
When o'er the light, it then was found,
Spite prestige and untruth,
Thut hoary heads, and bearded chief,
Were slain by. " beardless youth."
Yea, spite monopolies and gold,
And.long, fleep-seatedjpower,
The "beardless youth" had proudly won
The laurels of the hour.

And high extol the free,

For rigatjand liberty.        T. II. VV.
Speaking of thc result in Victoria
the Province says:
Xo doubt tbe eminently respectable
silent Mil,., of Victoria, which we  may
aptly describe in  the words of Tennyson, ns
" Sueh a tide as moving seems asleep,
Too lull for sound or foam,"
in conjunction witli other considerations, was lhe dominant factor in the
return of Messrs, Prior and Karle at tho
head of the poll, but it took no part in
the after proceedings, and the onlooker
was left, seeing the extraordinary demonstration in favor of the defeated candidates, to wonder the more at. the decision of the ballot. A new franchise
act and fresh voting lists will probably
produce n widely different result, for
there is little room for doubt that, if all
Who attended tlic Liberal meetings and
evinced their sympathy with the Liberal
cause had been entitled to vole, ns th
should have been, Messrs. Tcinpli
and Millie would havu secured lliu
It might also be added that the'
result throughout the Dominion
would assuredly have been far more
emphatic in favor of the Liberal
party bail all those voted who were
entitled to, and with the cause of j
complaint removed, there is no reason to doubt the continuance of the ;
Liberal regime, provided il fulfills
its promises and carries out the
principles of its platform as far a*-
praoticable and thereby retain the
confidence of the people.
The Tupperites, who are raving
about Mr. Laurier getting his majority in Quebec, seemingly forgetting that he has a majority also
from the rest of the country, are reminded by the Times that from the
Quebec boundary to the const more
Liberals than Conservatives were
returned, and if the independent
members are classified according to
their former political leanings, Mr.
Laurier's majority west of Quebec
attains quite respectable proportions. In the region west of Ontario
the Liberal gains aro most noticeable. In the liilo parliament there
was only one Liberal to fourteen
Conservatives; now there are seven
straight Liberals and three independents with Liberal Leanings,
while the Conservatives number
only seven. To any person who
hears in mind this marked conversion of die western country, the
Tory talk about Quebec must appear
slightly ridiculous.
Labor organizations, aotuated by
the purpose of securing justice for
worklngmen, of promoting their
material and secular well-being, are
the instrumentalities which God lias
created to establish justice in the
industrial world. The labor movement, despite all obstacles, grows
stronger every year, and will continue to grow in strength until the
overworking and underpaying of
workiugmen shall become as extinct
as chattel slavery, nnd that good
time is coining.-Advance Advocate.
Here are a few axiomatic truths
of political economy: Labor is the
source of all wealth; the wealth-
makers feed the wealth-takers; each
man has a right to all he produces,
or its exact equivalent; no man has
a right to another man's productions without giving him an equivalent.— Edgerton.
