Trades and Labor Congress.
When it was decided to hold tlie Dominion Trades and Labor Congress this
year at Quebec, tliere were many who
prophesied that the attendance, especially from Ontario, would lie so slim that
the gathering would practically !>e a
failure. These predictions were not
fulfilled and the twelth Congress was
not only the most successful in point of
attendance and representation, but is
likely to be the most important In its
influence on labor interests which has
yet been held in Canada.
About sixty accredited delegates were
present from all parts of the Dominion,
and half of this number Were marie up
of representatives from the centres nf
population in Ontario. The great west
too, hail it's representa'ives, Mr. Ralph
Smith ol Nanainio, having been sent
liy tho coal mining industry of thn
Pacific Province, and Mr. John Apple-
ton efficiently represented the organised
labor community of Manitoba. Among
the prominent delegates from Ontario
were Messrs I>. J. O'Donoghue, D. A
Carey, nnd Cieorgo Dower of Toronto
and John Flett ol Hamilton.
T iu p 0 e.'dings of the Congress were
aWy guided by the President, Mr. P J
Jobin, one of the most thoughtful ami
capable labor leaders nn this continent.
Many questions of vital importance to
the cause of labor came up for discussion
and among these one that is re.iogniseil
as of vital importance to British Columbia—the admission of Chinese coolies
Into Canada. It was for the puroose of
placing before the working riien of the
East the necessity of settling this qii's-
tion at once, if the win e man is not to
lie crowded out of all lines of unskilled
labor in British Columbia liy this cheap
class from the overcrowded centres of
population iu Asia, that Mr. Ralph
•Smith was sent bv the unions of the
Pacific Coast.
In this issue we. give our readers a
photogravure of tbe delegates, a glance
at which should make every working-
man proud of their representation, as a
more intelligent looking group of men
would be indeed difficult to find. The
general union of labor, as represented at
the Congress, is destined to become an
important factor in the D.minion, and
if British Col u in Ma is true to its best
interests in the election ol such representatives as will bring matters of importance to the notice of the National
Council, benefits will acme not oniy td
the working man, but to the people at

Fur ii moment lhere was silence,
then llie woman tittered with a hiss,

You have ruined—ruined me. My
God, what shall I do?" A-moment
later-, the front door closed with a
bani.*, and tho Vicar returned to the
study. Mr. Whymper noticed that
he wits ghastly pale. He made no
reference to what had happened,
but simply told tlie Curate that he
felt unwell, and would do no more
work that night.
Mr. Whymper lost no lime in
ciirryiii!* the news of this incident
ti> all the smart peoplein Bourgoistown. They were horrified and
outrage! by it. None of them
doubted who in- what the woman
was- s'-he could be nothing but a
discarded mistress; and, being noi
only smart but virtuous, they were
appalled at the discovery. They
immediately resolved to hold a kind
tues of respectability—that h.
should be a man of damaged character with a discarded mistress constantly wailing about hi- gates; the
ihing was monstrous, intolerable!
The whole smart population, male
and female, lose in rebellion ut the

other's stood round appalled a.id
motionless. Mr. Capelcouft at last
advanced to the woman, and put
his hand upon her chest.

steps should be taken.
At this council the general feeling was in favor of a requisition to
tlie Vicar to resign the living immediately, under threat of exposure. Mr. Caplecourt however, was
a cautious man, and he would not
■consent-to this course. As yet, he
pointed "cat. though there was every
reason H believe the woman was
the Vicar s discarded mistress, there
was no proof of it. Such being the
■case, it Would he very rash to act
on the assumption that the point
Wits established beyond doubt. But,
though there was no proof, there
was strong ground of suspicion,
which Ihe Vicar might very reasonably lie asked to explain. Mr.
Caplecourt., therefore, moved that a]
deputation be appointed to wait on
the Vicar, to state the story which
was being discussed all over lhe'
prrisli, and to ask him to reassure
them by stating who the woman
was, or otherwise satisfactorily disposing of the scandal. After some
•opposition from the more eager
spirits, this motion was carried,'
and a deputation duly appointed
Mr. Steudfi'M received the deputation in hi? library. He listen
ed patiently, fin.' with a sad face,
to all tliey had to tell him. Never
once during the recital did lie break
silence. When they had finished
he rose to his feet'
"Gentlemen," he said, *j cannot
tell yuu who the woman was. "I
•can give yon no explanation of the
matter. It is a dreadful and heartbreaking affair to me. All I can
do is to assure ynu, in the must
-earnest manner, that the public
suspicions, to which ynu refer, are
absolutely groundless, and to appeal to the evidence of iny life:
•among you in support of this
assurance. I can say no more.
Gentlemen, good night."
Before the deputation could realize it, the Vicar had lefljthe room.
They had no difficulty in guessing
the reason of his hasty departure.
While he was speating his voice
had once or twice trembled so
violently that they were surprised
it did not break down altogether,
•and when he ceased his eyes were
full of tears.
The Vicar's agony moved tl.e
pity even nf the indignant smart,
people of Bourgoistown; The howl
nf virtuous rage which ihey were
just setting up, died away in a few
paltry grumbles. Even the stalwarts who were not moved themselves, hud, in deference to public
opinion, to confine themselves tu
Much -curiosity was Felt as to
what Miss Hose, the Vicar's betrothed, would do. Of course, as
Mrs. Earthenware and Mrs. Caple-
-court, and all the other ladies
pointed out, if she was a self-respecting woman, only one course
was open to hor; but then, thediffl-
•culty was, whether she was a self-
respecting -woman. You see, as
Mrs. Earlhrnware said, she was
•only a governess, and so yuu could
not expect much of ber. If she had
been a M.ss Guplecourt or n Miss
Earthenware it would have been
•different.. But lhere, a governess

she gets a liiaiiee. Ami it was such
-a match, loo, for lhe like uf her.
No; none -uf the smart ladies would
he a bit surprised if she married
him aft?r all.
And she did. Not a month after
the incident which caused the
scandal, she became his wife. The
smart ladies, in spite of I heir anti-
'eipations, were shocked at her callousness, as they called it. And
tlieir disgust was not diminished
when, before the wedding was over,
it became known that on the* previous night tlie woman had again

Alberni Notes,
Robert Hudband has lately found
something that looks very line on
Douglas Mountain, below the Re-
gina group.
Alberni is shortly to have a
hall with club rooms on the upper
storv. It will bo opened with a
ball'on Dec. 21.
William Campbell, who has the
contract on the Mountain Rose, reports that he will have his work
finished in the coorse of a few days.
Messrs MoGillivray and Armstrong, of Vancouver, paid Allierni
a visit a few days ago. .They went
up to Mineral Hill and district and
were very favorably impressed with
the work and improvements done
in that neighliorhuud.
Work on the Regina is going
ahead in goud shape. No. 2 tunnel is now in over 30 feet, and No.
3 is in over 45 feet. On this property they have the advantage of
driving the tunnels in the solid
quartz as the lead runs up the hill.
