In my judgment a fair representation at the conventions Is an essential
condition   to   the   success  and   democratic character of the Federation. The

Sir���Ke dispute between the miners
in Cumberland  and   Ladysmith,    and
| you/ company.
At the third annual convention of
the  British  Columbia    Federation  of
i Labor,   recently   held   in   this  city,   a
I resolution  was  unanimously  adopted.
| stating the dispute and requesting the
| Hon. Sir  Richard  McBride, K. C, M.
|G., to use his good office In  an  endeavor   to  bring  about   a  conference
j between the miners and the manage-
I men:.
The  writer bad the honor of  piac-
' ing  that  request before Sir  Richard,
who,  in  turn,  was  good    enough    to
.write you expressing his great desire
i lo   see   a   settlement   effected.     Your
reply to Sir Rich a: d contains, amongst
! others,   two   points   which   appeal   to
| me, as cue desirous cf seeing a settle-
! ment of this dispute, and  which are
i responsible for this letter: one is the
| statement that you have, at all times,
been  willing to meet a committee of
j tho men.
'    This  conciliatory  attitude    of    the
company has evidently been mlsunder-
; stood by the men or they would have
taken advantage of It ere this.    The
! other point, 1 notice with pleasure, i8
your expression of regret at the hard-
j ships which the men and ttieir fami-
I'lies have experienced  as a  result of
.| this dispute.
On the strength of these statements
from you, I offer my services in an
endeavor to bring about a conference
between s committee of the men involved in the dispute and yourself or
your   authorized   representative,   with
'��� a  hope  of  finding a  basis  of  settlement. .

i    Dear Sir���On my return    from the
mines.  1 find your esteemed favor of
the  12th  Inst., in  which you  refer to
a resolution of the B. C. Federation of
Labor adopted at their annual oonven-
! tion recently held in this city.
Kir   Richard   McBride  has   already
'forcibly   drawn   our  attention   to  the
resolution anel kindly offered his good
offices to bring about a settlement of
the   existing   difficulties   at   Cumber-

We  have  already  explained  to  the
Premier that the settled policy of our
i company is such that we cannot iiK*ot

May 2t8h, 1913.
To all Trades Unions, Central  Labor
Bodies,   Building   Trades   Councils,
District and Allied Councils in B. C.
Friends  an.'   Fellow workers:
As you are no doubt aware, all the
coal mines on Vancouver Island are
tied up as the result of a decision arrived at on  May Day by the workers
in their power to promote the work
of the Federation. These men, and
among them the former I'resident,
declined to support your Executive In
protesting against the action of the
Government in calling out the militia
in connection with a labor dispute.
My regret and astonishment was, if
possible, increased when I found the
B. c. Federationist, half interest in
which, is owned by this ^deration,
and which is managed and edited by
a former official of the- Federation,
ignored the endeavors of the Executive to cry out against governmental
outrages directed against a section of
the  toilers of this  Province.
The use of the militia in connection
with labor disputes is getting to be
fashionable with modern governments,
and constitutes the only use and practical purpose to which it is put outside cf that of parading before dukes | \
and princes on state occasions.
The   worke-is   have   discovered   the

To slacken the selling pace in the hot season���to

If we think we cannot keep our business booming in

the example of that progressive fur man who dared

mercury goes up.
Energy, linked with Advertising, has turned the
month of January into the biggest selling season

appearing to enjoy the support and
sympathy of both Federal anel Provincial Governments, the coal barons
despaired of breaking the strike. As
a result of certain disturbances in

a pretext to send military forces into

when resort Is made to such methods
were at once anopted. High-handed
methods prevailed. All regard for

As you an- nil aware th actual
construction work has for some time
b ' li in progn --.*,. For this tin- rate-
pa*, eis voted the sum of $600,000, ol
which $190,000, approximately, has
been spent in engineering plain
shrinkage of bonds, construction
work, etc.
We  must  reali:-*e that the carrying
rut   of   this   Important   work   by   lhe
city lias demonstrated to the provln-1
clal nnd   Dominion governments and
to the shipping, railway and industrial I
firms that we ourselves are confident I
that New Westminster is the natural !
commercial  port of the  peninsula.    I
have iii.* the slightest dcubt whatever
but that the enterprise shown in this I
matter    materially    assisted    Colonel
Taylor, our member for the Dominion
parliament,   in   Inducing   the   govern- ]
nn nt   to  carry  on   the  work  of  con- |
Btrucling our channel at the mouth of
the river.
In 1918 he was successful In getting
the government appropriation of over
$700,000 for work on the Fraser riv.r
The greatest  part of this being spent.
on a' main channel. The citizens mint |
all feel gratiled that through the nn I
ceasing efforts of Colonel Taylor such j
a grcal amount of work has been so i
speedily accomplished.
The government has also given him
its assurance that, if necessary, tli<*
whole Le Harem scheme to secure a
proper channel  will be carried out.
We also have In our possession the
crown grant of the provincial and Dominion governments titles to the fore-
shore from Tenth street to the Brunette river, "with the* exception of the
public works department, C. P. It. and
penitentiary v, hurves.
The  harbor committee I have    a-<-
pointed  for tills year consists of the
new    aldermen���Messrs.    Annandale,
Smith and Qoulet   This I considered I
tha wlse3t course to pursue, as it will j
give   them   every   opportunity   to   be- I
come  versed   in  the  details    of    the
harbor scheme and to become inform-
ed  of the  reasons  for    the    present j
male of proceed nre.
1 trust tills committee will fully investigate the conditions under which
the work is being carried out and will
ascertain that the methods adopted ]
are proper and a? economical as are
consistent with the best interests of
the city.
I  Strongly  recommend   that  at  an
1 early date  a  meeting  be call d    between the occupants of the water lots
and the council to arrange a satisfactory settlement of the leases.
At the request cf the city the Dominion government has appointed two
harbor commissioners as its represen
tatives for the* Fraser river, viz..
Messrs. F. J. Coulihard and O. Blake-
ley, Tiie city council of 1913 appointed as its representative on tbe commission ex-Alderman White. In this
connection lhe council will have to
deal with the question of drafting an
agreement in regard to the administration of the waterfront property. I
can assure the citizens that the council will protect their rights in this
matter and will submit the agreement
io them for approval.
We have in our possession plans
and specifications, pr pared by Mr.
Pabst, for a municipal gas plant. We
also have received a price from the
Indian department of the Dominion
government for the property applied
for as a site for this proposed plant
We have, too. received a petition
from representative citizens that a
bylaw be again submitted for the purchase of the plant of the New West*

and some plan of action agreed upon, i
I Canadian Northern Railway. !
Plans bave been filed with the council by the Canadian Northern Railway
: cempany. showing the location of the j
tracks in Uiis city.    The 1913 council
went iuio these in a general way and
iUn* company was requested to furnish
'more definite plans.    They  were also
j notified that the council was desirous j
Of  meeting  their officials.    We  wert
informed that no other plans had been
| prepared as yet and that this was a
j matter to  be taken up  with  Sir William Mackenzie or s.r Donald Mann.
;Ir possible, this meeting will be arranged on  their  next    visit    to    the
coast,    True  it is t'n a I  early  in    this I
month   S'.r   William     Mackenzie    did
visit tiie west;  no attempt  was mad
on the company's part to bring about
a   meeting,   and   owing   to   the   short
life of the 1913 council 1 did not con-
eider it advisable to enter Into negotiations for a meeting.
The agreement to be entered into
with this company will be a matter
of great importance to the citizens,
and as their representatives the council must taite all necessary precautions to so the?e interests protecttd.

are yet unsold Some of this money
has been expended and other amount i
have been allocated to pay the city's
proportionate share on permanent
work under heal Improvement, viz.,
unfinished paving contracts and the
Sapperton sewer. The $114,000 aforementioned is ths balance of an issue.

j when taking up the estimates.
I might also add for the information j
of the council    that    provision    was'
made to purchase a pump for the pur-
pose of lowering the    water    in    the!
i ditches;   but the   Heaps   Engineering |
company, contractors for ?ame. could
not supply the kind mjuired for this !
1 work at   the  time  of  high  water,  although they supplied a temporary ono
for use last year.   I am informed that
the  one  contracted   for    will    arrive
Within the next thirty days.
Fire Halls.
A bylaw for f26,000 was passed last
year for the purpose of erecting a new
fire hall  in  Sapperton  to replace the
one in present use, which is out of date
and   beyond   repair.    A   fire  hall   too j
was to have heen erected at Queens- j
borough.    The necessity for this is so I
apparent that it is superfluous to state
the   reasons   for   it.     At  the   present
time we have no suitable site for this
hall;  but  ex-Alderman Henley, chair-,
man of this department for I'll:',, had )
every reason to expect  that the site I
he asked  for  from  the government   - !
near the Queensborougb school  -would ���
be granted.   It will be again necessary |
to take this  matter up at Victoria.
Provision was also made in the bylaw
for fire righting apparatus for the different  stations  in  the city.
Electric   Light  and   Water.
Until these departments have sufficient money for extensions during the
year 1914, provided that the bonds authorized last year are sold.
If tiie sale cf these bonds i'i not
made before taking up the estimates,
provision will have to he made for absolutely necessary work.
'lhe publicity committee should at
nice take up this matter and advise
the council what in its opinion will be
the proper course to pursue this year.
As has laen n ported the 1913 council
arranged the operation of this bureau
en a d iv basis. It is fur the council
to continue or discontinue the work of
this department, li must be held in
mind, however, that if it be found advisable to dispense with the services
cf the publicity commissioner the city
clerk or some other official should lie

consifting of Aldermen Dodd, Jardine
and Kellington wa** appointed to go
into this matter. As a result they
have collected the data necessary and
n: Bsesa maps showing tin* vacant city
property and its respective value. The
Industrial commissioner, Mr. Darling,
was furnished with copies of same,
and we are iii hopes that this year
ni w industries will be located 1111 this
property, thereby securing evira revenue for the city. 1 would recommend
tlirt this same committe act tor tin-
year 1914. If any leases, however, are
applied  for  they   will  have  to  receive
ihe due consideration of the council
as a whole before any definite arrange
mini  is entered  into.
R. A. & I. Society.
It is a matter of congratulation that
fie management of the R. A. A.* I society lias been able during the year
1913 tn show such a creditable balance shee't. We all agree that the assistance given to this organization
from time to time by the city council
has been money well spent, and that
the city as a whole has heen amply
repaid. While not personally wishing
to make any promises, I am sure that
tin*   council   will   give   the   association
due consideration for this year
Royal Columbian  Hospital.
Owing to the scarlet fever epidemic
and other reasons the council will be
called upon to make a grant to this
institution. This will receive our earnest consideration when the estimates
are being considered.
Victorian Order of Nurses.
A branch of this organization was
founded here last year and the council gave them a grant. I am informed that the necessity of retaining this
nurse is very apparent and that the
officers of this society will at any
time meet the council to place before
them their report and request assistance for this worthy project.
I want to recommend the favorable
consideration of the Curfew bylaw.
Should any member of the council
wis'h to ho convinced of the necessity
of such a measure I would refer them
to the chief of police or the police matron for Information regarding tli is
important step.

White has been a witness in most
of the cases which have been tried so
far. He is a quiet man. with a low-
voiced, cool way of giving evidence
that carries conviction, while, as a
witness, he bas yet to be tripped up
in cross-examination. Whatever may
have been tlie right or wrong of his
refusal to join the union, he is evidently a valuable employee, with a
single-hearted desire to do his best for
his  employers.
To the jury yesterday he related the
incidents of the night of August lit,

burning homes and the flames at
the mine works and his own attempts
to put out the fires.
