MEN RESUME WORK AT MIDDLESBORO  COLLIERIES.
At  Joint  Meeting Held  Yesterday
Morning Terms Were Agreed
Upon By Union Committee
and the Company.
At a meeting of a committee
of the Miners' Union and representatives of the Nicola Valley Coal & Coke Co. held at

board meets to definitely arrange matters between both
parties.
The following letter has been
received at this office in connection with the dispute between the company and men at
Middlesboro Collieries:
"To the Editor of The Nicola Herald,
Dear Sir:���In the last issue of your
Paper I am informed that a slight
Printer's error occurred. The Heading of the paragraph dealing with the
dispute here stated that Men Quit
Work. That is incorrect, the men did
not quit work, they were refused to be
allowed to work. Please make a cor
rection in your next issue, and take
measures to prevent a repetition of
same.   Your Gratefully,
W. H. Brown, Secy.

for such an insurance, which, it is
understood, is being effected at the instance of a large firm of British contractors who have great railway and
other undertakings at present' in progress in Russia.
A UNION VICTORY
APPEAL  BEFORE   FULL   COURT
FAVORS UNION.
A Splendid Number.
The December number of Westward
Ho! fully equals if it does not surpass
the sanguine announcement of its publishers. Its Christmas greetings are
suffused with that glow of hope which
is sure to awaken a responsive chord in
the patrons and friends to whom they
are addressed. The greetings with the
artistic colored design are altogether
chaste and unique. The reproduction
of views of the Franco-British Exhibition, which are most interesting to
Canadians is certainly superb and well
worthy of preservation as a memento.
The Church Intervenes.
The Anglican Synod of Sydney, Australia, has protested to the Premier of
Australia against allowing the Burns-
Johnson fight at Sydney on December
26th.
Trades Unions Have the Right to
Demand  From  Applicant
For Applicant a Test
Examination.
Of these eleven appeals thus decided
by the full court at Vancouver this
week the chief interest centres in the
union and the Heinze victories.
The trades unions claim that it has
the right to prescribe conditions for
the admission or rejection of applicants
to membership received judicial support in the case of Graham vs. Knott.
The latter is the secretary of the
Stonecutters' union of Victoria.
In effect the decision relieves any
trades union of liability to an applicant who refuses to submit to the test
for admission into the union and fails
to secure employment as a result of
his refusal to comply with the union's
conditions. The union may even force
him out of employment by threatening
to strike, as it did in this case, and yet
commit no actionable wrong.
The union's successful appeal was
from the recent decision of Judge
Lampman, who held that the union
had committed an actionable wrong
when it served notice upon Graham's
employer threatening a strike if he
were not dismissed. But the full court
holds that a union may go this far.
"It cannot be disputed," says the
chief justice, "that a body of workmen may, for the protection of their
lawful trade, and the promotion of
their interests, associate themselves
together and prescribe conditions for
the admission or rejection of others to
their association. If any condition appears to work a hardship by resulting
in the rejection of any applicant, there
is no remedy by which the body can be
forced to associate themselves with the
applicant. Indeed it would be futile to
attempt such a thing as that would be
in conflict with the undoubted right of
all persons to choose their own associations."
With this Mr. Justice Morrison and
Mr. Justice Clement agreed.
Meets On January 20th.
At a meeting of the Cabinet last
Friday it was decided to call parliament for the dispatch of business on Wednesday, January 20th.
Members will be sworn in on that
day and the Speaker elected. The
formal opening will take the next
day.
One good thing about being on
the losing political side is that you
are not worried about fixing up
any combinations to land a political joS.

Merritt, B.C., December 18, 1908.
The system which has been in
vogue for some time past of converting low-down Japanese into
full-fleged British subjects, received
a sudden jolt in the County court
at Vancouver a few clays ago, when
His Honor Judge Grant refused to
receive the applications of a dozen
Japs who requested the privilege of
signing themselves British subjects.
The applications were made by Mr.
Knox Walken- His Honor stated
that formal certificates from notaries would not be accepted as to
standing and moral character.
One booster will make a hundred
boosters. One knocker will make
two hundred knockers. It is very
difficult for human beings not to
influence each other. We are all
links in a chain. It is better to be
a booster link tnaa a knocker link.
Pid it ever strike you how much
good a boost could do and how
much harm a knock could carry
with it? One knock, be it so slight,
can do more harm than the biggest
boost on earth. Never be a pessimist, it hurts. Always be an optimist, because optimism is the one
thing that makes life worth living.
