EIGHT HOUR DAY
How the  Question  Was   Dealt  With
in the House of Com
mons.
Effects    of    the   Measure    As    Put
Through Parliament Explained
by 3. D. Taylor
A dispute has arisen in connection
with the Dominion government work
now In progress on Digby Island with
respect to the eight-hour day principle. Labor men in the city have
been under the impression that the
Dominion government recognizes an
eight-hour day, and insists upon it,
but it is alleged that J. D. McNIven,
the fair wage officer, has in some
way given permission for a nine-
hour day under this government contract and that that rule is being enforced.
In this connection the eight-hour
bill which was introduced into the
House of Commons by Mr. Verville,
the Labor candidate, will be of interest, together with the debate upon
different changes that were made
in it.
The bill as introduced by Mr. Verville is as follows: r
BILL 3
An Act Respecting the Hours of Labor on Public Works
His Majesty, by and with the advice and consent of the Semite und
House of Commons of Cunuda, enacts  as  follows.
1. In this Act, unless the context
otherwise requires,—"extraordinary
emergency" means nn emergency
that cannot be foreseen, such as
might be necessary for saving life
or property and not causes which
depend for their emergency solely
upon economical methods of work or
importance of rapid construction.
'£. This Act shall not apply:
(a) To purchases made in the
open market by the Government of
Canada;
(b) To work upon public, military or nnval works or defences in

(e) To contracts for transportation  by land or water;
(f) To agricultural work.
3. This Act shall apply to work
undertaken by the Government by

4. Without restricting the application of this .»ct, it is declared that
it includes:
(a) Contracts for the erection, remodelling, construction or repair of
all public works, such ns post offices,

(c) All contracts wliich contemplate the performance of labor after

contract.
5. No laborer, workman or mechanic in the employment of the Government, whether or not engaged on
public works, shall be required or
permitted to work more than eight
hours in any one calendar day except in transportation services or in
cases of extraordinary emergency.
6. Every contract (See Verville's
speech for words inserted) to wliich
the Government of Canada Is a party,
which may involve the employment
of laborers, workmen or mechanics
shall contain a stipulation that no
laborer, workman or mechanic in
the employ ot the contractor, subcontractor or other person doing or
contracting to do the whole or uny
part of the work contemplated by
the contract shall be required or per
mitted to work upon or in connec
tion with the work contracted for
more than (See Verville's speech for
alterations here) eight hours in any
one calendar day except In case of
extraordinary emergency.
7. Every such contract hereafter
made shall contain a provision that
unless the person making or per
forming it complies with the provi
sions of this Act, the contract shall
be void, and such person shall not
be entitled to receive any sum, nor
shall any officer, agent or employee
of the Government of Canada pay or
authorize payment from the funds
under bis charge or control to such
person for work done upon or in
connection with the contract which
in its form or manner of performance violates the provisions of this
Act.
8. The wages to be paid to all
laborers, workmen or mechanics coming within the provisions of Section
(( shall be the current per diem
wages In the locality where the work
or labor is performed.
At Instance of Labor
The bill was presented to Parliament at the instance of the Trades
and Labor Congres of Canada. This
bill had been before Parliament in
one form or another for about five
sessions, but always had been sidestepped by the minister, first by Mr.
Lemieux, and then by his successor,
Mr. King.
Last year, 1910, when it seemed
up to Mr. King to face the music
Mr. King hit upon the expedient of
referring the bill after its second
reading to a special committee
chosen by himself, and consisting for
the most part of members whose constituents might not be supposed to
be interested in such a movement.
And to relieve his department of responsibility, a university professor
was called in to supply the committee with data respecting the experience of other countries, which perhaps it was hoped might Justify the
abandonment of the idea of legislation of this kind. But following distinguished precedent, this man who
had been called In to curse remained
to bless. His report was strongly
in favor of the proposal. Copies of
this report and the evidence on wliich

ACTIVE MARKET
Real estate in Prince Rupert
is showing steady activity. Within the last few days the double
corner on First Street and Third
Avenue has been sold to J. L.
McLaren and A. T. Broderlck
for about $13,000. The purchase is in what will be almost
immediately excellent business
property. There has been an
increasing demand the business-
section of the city which promises well for the immediate future of real estate in Prince
Rupert.
INDIANS POISONED
Deaths   Resulted at  Essingt:n   From
Ptomaine Poisoning in Eating
Salmon Roe.
Mrs.   Stephens   dud   Her   Son   Sue.
climbed—Daughter Not Expected
to Recover
At Port Esslngton there has been
a serious loss of life through the
practice of Indians using food that
has not been properly prepared for
use. In this case, Mrs. Stephens,
her son Daniel and a married
daughter were the victims of polon-
ing from salmon roe that had been
prepared in anything but a proper
way for consumption.
The roe had been put in boxes and
buiried in the earth, according to
the information obtainable. After
being some time underground It was
taken up and put in tins and from
these tins used as food by the family. According to some who saw it,
the dish was anything but inviting.
Poisoning resulted and In spite of
the efforts of Dr. Large of Port
Simpson, who was present, the mother and the son, a young man of about
21 years of age, died. The daughters life was prolonged, but her
condition was such that no hopes
were entertained that she will get
better.
STILL EXAMINING
Mr. Yolen Williams of Granby Company
Returned to Prince Rupert From
Trip to Yukon.
Expert Will Investigate Still Further
Upon Northern Supplies of Ore
for Smelter
W. Yolen Williams, after a visit
to the White Horse and Carcross mining sections of the Yukon, returned
to Prince Rupert a few days ago.
He represents the Granby Smelter
Company, being engaged in looking
the whole northern field from the
standpoint of mineral production.
Shortly after the Granby company
took over the Hidden Creep proposition at Goose Bay Mr. Williams, one
of their experts, began his duties of
examining into the properties and
camps which might be considered
tributary to the smelter which the
company has in view. He is still
engaged in that work and will not
desist until he has visited practically
every camp in the north. This will
take several weeks longer to accomplish, after which Mr. Williams will
leave for the south and report to
the company for the October
meeting.
When at White Horse, Mr. Williams is reported to have stated that
he had in view the inaugurating of
some means whereby the outside
and local properties may be worked
in conjunction, the ore from the latter shipped out or, what he gives
as a more feasible plan, the erection
of a reduction works here, the unrefined output of which would be
shipped to the other smelter for use
in treating the ore of the company's
British Columbia mines. Immediately on his return to the outside
his report will be submitted to this
company.
Mr. Williams left the north the
very day that the reports upon the
new strike were received. He, therefore, was not in a position to pass
an opinion upon that strike. He,
however, seemed, inclined to think
there was some considerable exaggeration about this, as usual.

AWARD CONTRACTl
Foley, Welch & Stewart V/ill Construct
Last Section of the G.T.P.
in B.C.
President Hays Announces That the
Award Has Been Made by
the Company
I Special to The Journal)
Vancouver, August 29. — Foley,
Welch & Stewart have been awarded
the contract on the G. T. P. for the
410 mile section between Aldermere
and Tete Jaune Cache.
Work Is to be rushed on this last
uncompleted gap in the province,
said the president of the railway,
Charles M. Hays, who arrived here
on the way north with his party.
This official announcement bears
out the reports previously made that
the firm was to receive the award.
Foley, Welch & Stewart are equipped ready for the contract. They
have the material on the ground,
simply requiring to move it on from
the work now in progress. It is
generally expected that this last gap,
which will be attacked from both
ends, will be finished in much faster
time than any that has been so far
constructed.

(Special to The Journal)
Byng Inlet, Ont., Aug. 29.—Uncertainty as to the fate of the tug Martin was removed by finding wreckage
from the vessel, which went down
August 21 in a storm with the entire
crew of ten. The tug was towing
the barge Albatross on Georgian Bay
off French River when the barge was
sunk, dragging the tug down with it.
Wanted Sewer
Je-.*y Bonneau petitioned the
council last evening for a sewer to

(Special to The Journal)
Broekville, Ont., Aug. 29.—With
a mass meeting in the skating rink
last night, R. L. Borden closed his
Ontario tour, which lias been marked
by a series of triumphs since the
opening meeting at  London.
At no place did the people acclaim
the Opposition leader more heartily
than In the stronghold on Hon. G. T.
Graham, which has returned a Liberal to Ottawa since the death of the
late Hon. John F. Wood.
One Inch Pipes
A petition was presented to the
council last evening asking for a wa-
i.*r pipe from beyond Hays Cove
Avenue. Aid. Hilditch suggested
that an inch pipe might be put in
to serve this part of the city, which
was not very thickly populated, To
put in a two-inch pipe would mean
a considerable outlay, which should
be avoided If possible, as a permanent pipe would be put In later. The
matter was referred to the finance
committee.
Wedded in Victoria
At First Presbyterian Manse, the
Rev. Dr. Campbell celebrated the
marriage of Mr. David Cook Strang
og Prince Rupert, second son of Mr.
William Rankin Strang of Kirkintilloch, Scotland and Barbara Jane,
eldest daughter of Mr. David Campbell McDougall of Melbourne, Australia, says the Victoria Times. The
bride arrived from Australia in the
morning. Mr. and Mrs. Strang leave
by boat to-morrow for Prince Rupert, where they intend to reside.
 o	
Oil Stock on Market
The Graham Island Oil Company,
which is a local organization with
large holdings of oil claims on the
west coast of Graham Island, has put
on the market a limited number of
shares at 25 cents a share. These
have a par value of $1 a share. The
issue is limited, the intention being
to sell only sufficient to meet the
initial needs of the company in developing the property. The Mack
Realty Company has the handling of
this stock, which will be left on the
market only for a short time.
 o	
Indian Work
Rev. Mr. Ferrier of Brandon, the
superintendent of the Indian work of
the Methodist Church in Canada, and
who takes active chargee*>f the inlus-
trial school at Brandon, occupied the
pulpit of the Methodist Church on
Sunday evening. He gave a very
interesting address upon the training of children, using information
gathered from years of work in this
line. Mr. Ferrier, on behalf of the
Methodist Church, visited Hazelton
in connection with work there re
lated to the missionary efforts of the
denomination.

The superintendent of the electric
light and telephone systems in. the
city, B, Love, evrote a letter to the
council last evening In which he
showed that he felt aggrieved at the
action of some one.
Aid. Clayton was not long in accepting what he seemed to think was
a challenge to him in the matter,
and In no uncertain way he made his
position clear.
The circumstances prompting the
letter of complaint of Mr. Love will
be investigated.
The letter read as follows:
Gentlemen—A matter of great importance has just arisen in connection with stories being carried by individuals to members of your council, in connection with the operation
of this department which appear to
ave been listened by some members. A case came up today, when
a member of your council challenged
my weights of the coal now being
delivered at the electric light plant.
On investigation my weight was
found to be correct. The alderman
in question was informed by a certain person in the department, but
this fact 1 am not prepared to swear;
however, the fact remains that some
person has been carrying tales to the
alderman. Now, to get to the point,
if an alderman will stoop to listen
to all the hearsay he may gather on
the streets and then put the head of
a department in the position in which
he placed me, i claim that the alderman must have little faith in me.
That being the case, 1 ask that the
council give me power to discharge
any employee of the department,
wnether he be working by the day
or month.
This man knows I cannot discharge him without the consent of
the council and therefore he stabs
ine in the back at every opportunity.
1 would therefore ask that I be given
power to discharge this man, as I
do not feel I can continue to manage the electric light plant while Ills
dirty tactics are being carried on behind my back, and are receiving recognition by some of the aldermen.
1 trust you will give the matter your
earliest attention.
Yours very truly.
ERNEST LOVE.
Upon the reading of the letter before the council, Aid. Clayton at once
took the floor. He said he felt that
this communication was directed
against himself (Aid. Clayton). It
was a weak effort, he thought, to de-
fi'iid himself (Mr. Love) against
something which was never charged
against him. He would, as a member of the committee, look Into this
and If he found there was anything
in the charge which seemed to be
made against himself lie would promise to make Mr. Love answer tor it.
Hi' would take upon himself, whenever be. felt convinced that there was
any need of checking up anything
like this comment on it, in spite
nf eetiy official or minion of the city
council. His action in this instance
was prompted by the tacl that when
coal was taken In before there had
been a shortage of fifteen tons to
make up,
The letter wns referred to the light
committee.

PRAISES CLEMENTS
f)
Liberal   Wholesaler   Informs   His   Customers as to Merits of the Conservative Candidate.
Plain Statement  of Pact  for the
formation of Residents of
Comox-Atlin
l.e-
The following letter has been received by a number of retail dealers
in this neill hern part of Comox-Atlin
constituency, having been sent out
by n Liberal wholesaler in Vancouver who seeks to make clear to his
customers the worth of the Conservative candidate. The letter is self-
explanatory:
Dear Sir—I am taking the liberty
of addressing this letter to you, met
for the purpose of soliciting your
vote or to Influence you in the coming elections for any one of the candidates that may be running in the
interests of either political party, nor
even to suggest why you should or
should not, suggest, or advocate, reci-
proclty with the United States. My
sole object is to introduce to you
Herbert S. Clements, the Conservative candidate in Comox-Atlin at the
coming general elections to represent your district in the Dominion
Parliament at Ottawa, and to give
some facts as to his life and career
previous to coming to British Columbia. 1 have personally, and most intimately known Mr. Clements for
many years past, and, as you and I
are aware, many of the electors of
Comox-Atlin never have seen, or
heard, of this gentleman before. I
merely wish to outline his conduct
in the east, ere he became a resident
among us. He came to the Coast
some three years ago, and resided a
good part of that time at Prince Rupert, and, I think knows the needs
of the Coast well. He is a young
man, unusually bright and intelligent, and 1 think has a keen liking
for political affairs. He' is a native
of Kent County, Ontario, and was
raised on his father's farm In that
country. In his early manhood he
left the farm, and went to the nearby
city of Chatham, where he accepted
a position clerking for the T. H. Taylor Co., In the wool and flour business, and, as be was an active young
man, he soon took more or less interest in the political affairs of his
county. At this time the Conservatives there were very much in the
minority, and when I left Chatham
about eight years ago, Mr. Stephens
(whose partner 1 was in the hardware business) was the Reform.member for Kent. Mr. Stephens was a
strong and popular man with his
party, and considered a hard man to
beat when the next general elections
should come on. Mr. Clements had
had no former experience in politics
other than the interest he had always
shown in any municipal or political
eon test in his community. 1 believe
he served one term as school trustee
for the ward of his city in wliich he
resided before he was nominated by
the Conservatives to oppose Mr. Stephens at the next general elections.
All the Conservatives of Kent strongly centred at this time around Mr.
Clements, because he was considered
thoroughly straightfordward, well
liked by all with whom he came In
contact, of untiring energy, and without a blemish politically, morally or
socially. His financial standing was
practically nil, as bis means were
very limited. This was considered
bis greatest weakness, but as Mr.
Stephens had conducted his former
campaign within reasonable legitimate expenses, it was expected ha
would do so again, as the Reformers
did not look upon Clements as a
dangerous candidate, and Mr. Stephens   was   not   a   man   who   would
needlessly loosen up. The campaign
was a long one, which was in favor
of Clements, and Stephens, not realizing what he was up against, woge
up too late. Clements won with a
good majority, and so honestly had
his election been conducted, that
there was no hope of a successful
protest, so he became Kent's member
at Ottawa. Now the fact of being
among the Opposition did not deter
him from obtaining all he could get
for bis riding, nor yet prevent him
from most vigorously exposing what
he considered wrong. This made him
a marked man. Now awoke the
measures his opponents took to de-
feal him at .the next general election. The government, no doubt, was
tired of his constant nagging, hence
he must go at any cost.. In his city
(Chatham) there was a young man
very smllar to Clements in nearly
every respect, just as vigorous and
energetic as Clements. He, too, was
very popular, and could work almost
the twenty-four hours in the day If
necessity compelled; was a Liberal
reformer, and considered the only
cue In the constituency who stood
any chance of beating Clements, but
unfortunately ho was shelved to all
intents and purposes, and could not
be had, for he was the memberelect
to lopresent his district in the Ontario legislature at Toronto; consequently he could not sit as Kent's
representative in both houses. This
did not discourage the Liberals, they
called their convention and nominated Archibald McCoig for the Dominion House. This convention took
place, leaving a good long interval
between it and election day. In the
meantime he (McCoig) was still their
local member, with the great advantage of being backed in his Dominion
campaign by the government at Ottawa. I may say here that when
McCoig did resign his local seat, it
was won by a Conservative, and is
still held by one. The contest between Clements and iVlcCoig was considered the hardest fought political
battle that ever took place in that
county; everyone had plenty of money, and, when the smoke cleared
away, Clements had been beaten by
the small majority of about '70, out
of a vote polled by something like
2,000 vote!. Still, he was beaten by
a government candidate, and even
though there were strong grounds for
protesting the election, what was the
use? They could easily beat him
again in a bye-election, so Clements
came west. He has been so well
pleased with the Coast that he has
'refused to go back fcr another fight
in Kent,and now hopes to represent
Comox-Atlin at Ottawa after the next
election.
Vou may wonder why I address
this letter to you. I am doing so
because 1 am a warm friend of Clements, and 1 want him known as he
really is. I am writing this of my
own dictation; Clements has not seen,
or suggested it; he is out of the city,
and as 1 have met. you on Beveral
occasions in a business way, and consider you among the foremost business men along tbe Coast, I am, as
1 said, taking this liberty, and I trust
that should Mr. Clements pass your
way. for doubtless, he will endeavor
to cover as much of the territory as
possible before the election. You
will find what all good men love to
see In another, xiz: a good, but fair,
lighter. I am taking no part in this
election, and. up to date, don't even
know who Mr. Clements' opponent is.
I am jusy trying to say a word in
favor and describing a friend as 1
have known him. 1 wish to reserve,
or ask the privilege of being allowed
to send a copy of this, should 1 deem
it expedient, to other gentlemen in
the district, that they too may have
eiome idea of this young man's standing In his old home before he came
to British Columbia. While I have
been In the west, I have kept in close
touch with events In Chatham, which
I resided about twenty years, and
what I have said in'this letter I know
to be facts. You and I know how
impossible it will be for Mr. Clements to reach all the voting divisions of Comox-Atlin in the short
time allowed before the election
takes place, hence my request for
being allowed to send copies, if the
expediency should  arise.
Apolgizing, if I have trespassed
too much on your valuable time,
1 am, Sir, yours truly,

PIONEER STEAM LAUNDRY
Firm in the "belief that British
Columbia methods In dealing with
the development of public lands In
the disposition of timber, the settlement of farming lands and the retention of areas for reforestation,
are suitable for Alaska and furnish
a solution of the present unsatisfactory conditions prevailing in that section, Congressman William Sulzer of
New York, who has just completed
an exhaustive examination into methods in use in this province, will soon
introduce a bill in Congress to provide for leasing laws for Alaska
lands.
Mr. Sulzer recently arrived al
Ketchikan and left for Sulzer, the
scene of his mining operations on the
Prince of Wales Island. The New
York congressman has been studying
Canadian land laws. His idea is to
apply the important features of the
leasing system in use in this province to the forest reservations of
Alaska and if the results prove satisfactory he will extend them to the
forest reserves of the States.
A recent despatch to the Post-Intelligencer of Seattle,  from a staff
correspondent  who  met  Mr.   Sulzer
and party at Ketchikan, says:
Admires Canadian Law
"Mr. Sulzer's first interest in a
bill of this sort was due to his desire to see the development of the
north, and not with a view to extending such laws to the reserve
lands within the States. When it
was pointed out to him that same
classification of lands would be possible under a leasing law as is now
in force in Britisii Columbia, and that
under its operation agricultural
lands now within forest reserves
would go back intoxthe public domain for settlement and development,
he said he would take up and study
that phase of. the question, and the
possibilities for further legislation
along that line.
Congressman Sulzer said he had
long been impressed with the suc-
. sssful operation of the so-called timber limit system in British Columbia, and the opportunity for disposition of timber, the settlement of
farming lands, and the retention of
timbered areas for reforestation under laws similar to those through
which the Canadian province of British Columbia has so well safeguarded public interests in the disposition
of its public lands.
"Over there limber areas are
leased at so much annual rental per
acre, and the stumpage fee Is paid
to the government when the timber
is cut. The lands remain government lands, and when reforestation
is impractical, they can be sold as
logged-off land.
Fee Remains in Sovereign
"No timber lands pass to private
ownership. On the other hand, no
agricultural lands can be leased as
timber lands; they are opened to
pre-emptors as soon as classification
can be made, and classification is the
next immediate step following survey.
"Such a step, Mr. Sulzer believes,
would eliminate arbitrary reserve
boundaries with all the handicap to
mining and other pursuits these
boundaries now Impose, and would
be a step In the direction of development of Idle areas which promise at
present to remain petpetual wildernesses, and would develop them for
the benefit of the whole people."
KINO GEORGE OX  MANNERS
Says
Englishmen    Lose
Their Faulty
Behavior
Place   by
Speaking at a speech day celebration at Wolverley School, Worcestershire, recently, the Bishop of Worcester gave an account of a conversation he once had with the King,
when Duke of York, on the subject
of manners.
The bishop said that on the occasion In question he was about to
address some public schoolboys when
the King remarked: "Why do you
not ask that at public schools manners be taught?"
In response to the bishop's question  as  to  why he should specially
emphasize manner, the King replied:
"Because, as you now, I mix among
all sorts and conditions of men, and
it has been a positive distress to me
to see how often, when abroad, Englishmen lose in the race with Frenchmen, Italians and Germans because
of their want of manners.
"The foreigners know when to
bow, to shake hands, to converse, to
stand up or Bit down in the presence of their superiors, while the
Englishman is wanting in these manners. When vacancies have to be
filled those are the points which very
often tell, and that is where the Englishman does not shine.'

companies, and seriously cripple the
Dominion as a competitor in foreign
markets. But the very reasons
which commend the agreement to
the United States should ensure its
rejection in Canada if we are not a
less spirited people, with a less Intense national consciousness, and a
less zealous regard for our fiscal Independence and' our national integrity.
The whole history of the United
States proves that in our situation
Washington would sumarlly reject
the trade agreement. It has become
one of the mighty nations of the
earth by protecting American labor,
American industries and American
agriculture. Who believes that if
the United States had only three or
four millions of farmers it would
open the door to the competition of
thirty millions of farmers in an adjoining country? Who believes that
Washington would legislate to check
the inflow of foreign capital and foreign industries? Who believes that
the United States with unexhausted
natural resources would share its
patrimony with an aggressive rival?
Who believes that the Republic would
consider a policy that would drive
trade from its ocean ports, railways
and steamships into foreign channels? Only by the policy that the
United States has pursued can we
create home markets for Canadian
producers, ensure the growth of Canadian towns and cities and the expansion of Canadian industries, avoid
a surplus of labor with decreasing
wages, and maintain and extend the
great transportation enterprises that
we have created at enormous cost
and upon wliich largely depend the
commercial unity and the poltlcal
cohesion of Canada. For this country the trade agreement is a form of
self-destruction and it is Inconceivable that the Canadian people will
commit suicide in order to save a
group of party politicians who
already have had fifteen years of
office, patronage and plunder.—Toronto News.
It is said that Sir Wilfrid Laurier's
chief reason for accepting the Conservative challenge to go to the country was because he became convinced that in actual operation the trade
agreement would work such Immense mischief to Canadian Interests and so revolutionize commercial
conditions that the government
could not hope to survive a general
election twelve months later. It Is
doubtful if the prime minister has
ever had any enthusiasm for the contract which was impsed upon the
government by the minister of inance
and the minister of customs. At
first he cannot have realized that the
contract was in direct conflict with
his whole transcontinental railway
policy. He induced the country to
sanction an undertaking which will
cost two hundred millions of dollars
by the argument that it would make
us forever independent of theh Uni't-
ed States and ensure that Canadian
trade would not be diverted from
Canadian channels. But his two ministers even before the great enterprise was completed entered into a
compact with Washington which
must immensely impair the invest-.
ent, infallibly drive trade into American courses and ultimately perhaps
affect even the political destiny of
the country.
It Is believed that not even a single member of the cabinet except
Sir Wilfrid Laurier knew the nature
of the trade agreement until Mr.
Fielding and Mr. Paterson returned
from Washington. It is doubtful if
even the prime minister himself understood the revolutionary character
of the contract. It is certain that
Its terms were withheld, from every
Liberal member of parliament and
that there was an absolute failure
to consult even a single representative of the Canadian business interests. As the prime minister entered
into a secret compact to Impose emasculated constitutions upon Saskacht-
wan and Alberta, so he made his
agreement with Washington behind
the backs of the people. Moreover,
he violated his solemn pledge that he
would make no revolutionary tariff
changes until a commission was appointed to consult with the business
interests as he invalidated every
argument he had used to justify the
railway policy of the government.
The whole transaction shows contempt of the cabinet, contempt of
the commercial interests and contempt of the Canadian people.
It is no secret that even with tbe
Cabinet itself the agreement was regarded with doubt and suspicion. Mr.
Sifton, Mr. Harris and Mr. German
were by no means the only Liberal
members of the Commons to protest
to the government against ratification of the compact. All but these
three were silenced but they had
sympathizers who gave only a sullen
assent and answered only to the party
whip. So there are thousands of
Liberals in the country who will vote
against reciprocity and against the
government. Nothing so encourages
the opposition as the accumulating
evidence of widespread disaffection
in the Liberal party. There may be
Conservatives who are in favor of
the agreement but they are not numerous and day by day they yield to
the arguments against it. On the
other hand, multitudes of Liberals
grow steadily more hostile, and beyond doubt have broken finally with
Sir Wilfrid Laurier and his colleagues. For once we have a question
which overrides party interest and
party prejudice. The feeling spreads
and strengthens that the fiscal independence of the country is threatened and that simple loyalty to Canada and the Empire leaves patriotic
Canadians no option but to reject the
agreement and defeat the government. <
What could be more offensive than
Mr. Taft's statements that Canada is
at "the parting of the ways," and
that the object of American policy
is to effect the fiscal separation ot
the Dominion rrom the Mother Country. No one can move amongst Americans without exasperation at their
easy confidence that as last they
have found the key to the fiscal subjugation of Canada, and that the
ultimate result can be only the political amalgamation of the two
countries. This in itself is no reason
for quarreling with the American
people. It is natural that they should
desire to manufacture cor Canada
and to have an equal partnership in
our markets and resources. But It
is surprising that the object should
be so boldly avowed. They thorough-
yl understand that we cannot compete with the huge American trusts,
that access to Canadian raw material will enormously strengthen their
industrial supremacy, and that under
the trade agreement they will divert
a great volume of business from Canadian  ports aud  Cannd!:.u

WONDERFUL MECHANISM
The   Wonderful   Mechanism   of   the
Watch
Few pieces of machinery show
more marvelous features than that
of the watch. As a general proposition, it may be stated that a watch
is the smallest, most delicate instrument of the same number of parts
that has ever been devised. About
one hundred and seventy-five different pieces of material enter into its
construction and upward of twenty-
four hundred separate operations are
comprised in its manufacture, says
the  Scientific  American.
Certain of the facts connected
with its performance are almost incredible, when considered as a whole.
A blacksmith strikes several hundred blows on his anvil In a day
and, as a matter of course, is glad
when Sunday comes; but the roller
jewel of a watch makes every day—
and day after day—432,000 Impacts
against the fork, or 157,680,000
blows during the course of a year,
without stop or rest—or some 3,153,-
600,000 blows during the space of
twenty years, the period tor wliich
a watch Is usually guaranteed to keep
good time.
But the wonder of it does not cease
here. It has been calculated that
the power that moves the watch is
equivalent to only four times the
force used in a flea's jump. The
watch-power is, therefore, what
might be termed the equivalent of a
four flea-power. One horse-power
would suffice to operate 270 000,000
watches.
Furthermore, the balance-wheel of
a watch Is moved by this four flea-
power one and forty-three one-hundredths Inches with each vibration,
or 3,558 3-4 miles continuously in
one year.
Not much oil Is required to lubricate the little machine on Its 3,500-
mile run. It takes only one-tenth
of a drop of oil to oil the entire
machinery of a year's service.

A NOTABLE LIBERAL "VICTORY"
The following clipping is taken
from  the Montreal  Star:
Will Oppose Mr. German
Welland. Out., August 17.—Welland County Conservatives met here
yesterday in convention and unanimously selected Mr. William Monroe of Thorold as their candidate for
the House of Commons. There was
a feeling in some quarters that the
party in view of the position of the
late Liberal member. Mr. W. M. German, in the matter of reciprocity,
should not nominate a candidate. Mr.
German, it was staed at the convention, had met a deputation and
agreed to vote against the pact in
Parliament, and also to support Mr.
Borden In the dlvsion for a speaker
in case the vote should be close. The
convention, however, by a vote of
107 to 50, declared in favor of bringing out a candidate and the vote was
afterwards  made  unanimous.
Commenting on the above editorially, the Star said:
The  Conservatives  and  Mr.  German
The decision of the Conservatives
of Welland to oppose Mr. German',
who took his political life in his
hands to fight reciprocity, needs
some explaining. This election is a
referendum on reciprocity. No
friend of the national cause which
seeks to save Canada from the most
dangerous attack ever aimed at her
integrity, should be exposed to the
fire of the anti-reciprocity forces.
There are enough pro-reciprocity men
for us to fight and beat, without
going out of our way to destroy men
who are with nus, but who do not
fly the part colors which some opponents of reciprocity seem to take
so seriously.
In truth, it matters not a rap
whether a man be a Liberal or a Con,
servative, so long as he is against
the suicidal policy of national capitulation, and will vote right when in
Parliament. It would seem to us
that the Conservatives who are a
minority partj—should welcome the
adhesion on this decisive issue of
every Liberal who proposes to put
patriotism above partyism.
In Monday night's News, we find
the following:
"Toronto, Aug. 2S.— (Special) —
William Munroe, the Conservative
candidate at Welland, has dropped
out and no Conservative will be in
the field."
Walk-Over al   Welland
A few more "walk-overs" like this
and the Liberals will walk over to
the Opposition  side of the House.
Prince Rupert Will be a Busy Place in a

Men   in  the  West
LIBERALS  OPPOSED
Lloyd Harris. Liberal M. p. for
Brantford, Out., in the last House,
told a meeting of the Brantford Liberal Association: "When reciprocity
was first mentioned, 90 per cent of
the Liberal members at Ottawa were
noi in favor of it. When the question of negotiations actually came
up, 1 lent the question to the Liberal
members and I honestly believe If a
caucus had been held the vote would
have been 90 per cent against it."
The member's remark was accepted with silence and the meeting proceeded to nominate him unanimously
as the representative of Brantford
Liberals in'the coming fight.
J. E. Hayes of Calgary, whose company, the Fidelity Trust and Savings
Company, has underwritten a large
issue of stock of the Britisii Pacific
Coal Company, was a visitor In tlie
city last week. He came north with
W. (1. .McMorris, the managing director of the company, and went west
on to Graham Island, where he will
inspect the work being done.
.Mr. .McMorris took over a number
of men who will be put to work at
once on the opening up of the mine
and the building of the necessary
road to the property which is showing   up   so   well.
Mr. Hayes says that tlie Britisii
Pacific stock sold in Alberta better
than any other stock that has been
put on the market within recent
years.
Speaking of the city of Prince Rupert, -Mr. Hayes says that the amount
of advertising the place has received
in the last few years ensures the
greatest movement here about the
time the railway is completed, that
will eclipse anything in the world
heretofre. People are all awaiting
it and will pour in by thousands.
"Every live wire in Western Canada and the United States will connect with Prince Rupert," is the way
Mr. Hayes foretells the coming of
the brightest business men of the
country. He went over the city while
here and was delighted to see the
way in which preparation was being
boom comes.
 o	
B. Conrad, who is associated with
Colonel Conrad in the mining ventures of the latter at Carcross, visited the city this week on his way
south.
Dr. Wrinch of the Hazelton hospital spent Sunday in the city and
left for home yesterday. He was a
witness in the shooting case from
that place.

Bylaws
This evening in the Empress Theatre there will be a meeting held in

works  and  electric  proposition.
At this meeting the mayor and
members of the council will be present and will present the case from
the standpoint of the city.
The waterworks bylaw is the only
one about which any difference of
opinion has been shown. The council
has taken expert advice in the matters and the members of the council
will be prepared to give information
on the subject which they are satisfied will convince the public that the
proposition is in the very best Interests of the city. The property owners who are to vote on these questions on Saturday should attend the
meeting tonight and become informed upon the question so that they
will be in a position to vote intelligently on Saturday.

ON PLEASURE TRIP
Visitors From the South  Spent Few
Days in Prince Rupert Before
Proceeding on Tour.
R. P. Butchart of Tod Creek Cement
Works Was a Visitor to City
Over Sunday
"Doctor, I suffer dreadfully from
rheumatism In my knee."
"Well, there's some .satisfaction in
that."
"Yes;  it shows, you know, that It's
a real ease nt rheumatism."
After a hurried trip to Hazelton,
G. G. S. Lindsey, K. C, of Toronto;
R. W. Brock, the head of the Geo-
logical Survey of Canada, and Mr.
.Marriott, the engineer representing
Kyersbach & Company of London,
returned to the city on Sunday evening. The trip was too short a one
to allow of a visit to Groundhog
.Mountain, where Mr. Lindsey is deeply interested in coal with other Toronto men.
The work at Groundhog, Mr. Lindsey said, was being proceeded with
under Mr. McEvoy, the engineer in
charge, and the situation there was
al, that could be desired.
The trip made last week was to
give Mr. Marriott an opportunity to
look into the mining districts of this
northern coast, his company being
interested in finding out all that
could be learned with the object in
view of Investing.
On .Monday the party left for Stewart and other properties In the north,
going by launch.
Mr. Brock will go to the Stlckine
In connection with his work before
returning.
Two of the best equipped gasoline
launches on the Pacific Coast spent
Sunday in this port. These were the
Ilo-Uo of Victoria, wliich flies the
Canadian flag and is the property of
R. P. Butchart, and the Calcite of
Seattle, the property of Mr. McMillan.
The two launches have been making a leisurely trip along the coast
in company with one another, the
owners and their guests enjoying a
holiday in this delightful manner.
.Mr. Butchart is the managing director and practically the owner of the
Vancouver Portland Cement Company located at Tod Creek near Victoria. Mrs. Butchart accompanied
her husband and in the party was
also Mrs. J. W. Ambery of Victoria.
Mrs. Butchart is a lover of the open
and enjoys a tramp through the
woods to a trout stream quite as well
as does her husband. She is also
a skilled fisher, and on the way north
a stop was made at the Nimpkish
River, where the sport was engaged
in by the party.
In the other launch, which is built
upon much stronger lines than the
one which Mr. Butchart uses as a
pleasure yacht, was Mr. McMillan
and Mr. McCracken, who are interested in the lime works at Roche
Harbor on San Juan Island.
On the way here he Ilo-Ilo met
with an accident through the rusting through of certain pipes which
were exposed to the salt water. The
Calcite had to take the Canadian
craft in tow and bring her into port
here, wliere the repairs were ifiade
All members of the parties were
delighted with the city. It was the
first time that any of them had been
here and it was quite a surprise to
find conditions as they were here
They became deeply interested In the
place and with all that Is going on
In the development of the city. Mr
Butchart was attracted to the per
raanent character of the wharf which
is being built by the government.
They left yesterday forenoon, nnd
would probabl" proceed south from
this port home.

By-Law
BYLAW OF THE CITY OF PRINCE RUPERT TO PROVIDE FOR THE
CONSTRUCTION OF A HYDRO-E LECTHIO SYSTEM TO SUPPLY THE
CITY OF PRINCE RUPERT WITH WATER, ELECTRIC IiIGHT AND
POWER AND TO CREATE AND SECURE A DEBT FOR THE
PURPOSE OF CONSTRUCTING THE SAID SYSTEM AMOUNTING
TO $550,000.00.
WHEREAS, by the Municipal Clauses Act and Amending Acts, the
City of Prince Unpen is authorized to construct, operate and maintain
works for supplying for any or all purposes, water, wuter power, electric
light, and electric power to the inhabitants of the said city and localities
adjacent thereto, and for regulating rates, conditions, and terms under
which such works are to be completed and used,
AND, WHEREAS, it bus been considered expedient for the City of
Prince Rupert to construct and maintain works to obtain a permanent
supply of water for (he use of the inhabitants of the suid city, and any
persons, who may be adjacent to the pipe lines, constructed hereunder,
such water to be used for all purposes for which the suid City may legally
supply water, such works to be so constructed as to furnish electric power
to be used by the snid City for all purposes for which the said City is
authorized by statute to apply the same.
• AND, WHEREAS, the water from Woodworth Lake, situated on the
Tsimpsean Peninsula, can be utilized for the purpose of obtaining a good
and sufficient supply of water for the said City, and also lor the purpose
of supplying electric power for the use of the said City.
AND, WHEREAS, instead of constructing two separate systems, one
for the supply of water, and the other for producing electric power, the
Council have concluded that a combination of the two systems in one
will be much more economical and equally, as efficient.
AND, WHEREAS, in order to effect such a combination, it will be
necessary to install mains from the point of diversion to the point, where
the power "plant is to be constructed, of sufficient diameter to carry water
for both purposes, which will be much more than would be required for
either the water supply or the electric system alone.
AND, WHEREAS, considering the above recited facts, the Council
hnve determined to treat the whole scheme as a joint undertaking and to
provide for the construction of the same ns such.
AND, WHEREAS, the general description of the proposed Hydro-
Electric System is as follows:—
A dam to be erected at a suitable point near the outlet of Woodworth
Lake; from that point the water to be piped down to a point at or near
the head of Shawatlans Lake, the said pipe to be of a capacity large enough
to carry sufficient water for tlie supply of tlie City of Prince Rupert, and
also to operate at or near the head of Shawatlans Lake, a plant for the
purpose of generating electricity; and after leaving the head of Shawatlans
Lake the water will be piped into tlie City of Prince Rupert, and there
be distributed by a proper distribution system, and the electric power
will be brought into the said City by transmission lines from the head
of Shawatlans Lake.
AND, WHEREAS, the amount of the debt necessary to be incurred
by the City of Prince Rupert for the construction of the sold Hydro-Electric
Plant, and the necessary distribution system connected therewith, is the
sum of 8550,000.00.
AND, WHEREAS, the total amount which will have to be raised
annually for the purpose of pa) ing the s aid debt and interest will be
$28, 048.54.
AND, WHEREAS, the said Hydro-Electric System cannot be completed
before the first day of September A. D. 1912, and, therefore, the amount
of rates, charges, and rentals for the use of water or electric power will
during tills present year be nil.
AND, WHEREAS, no money is already charged against the rentals,
rates or charges to be derived from the said Hydro-Electric System.
—--' AND, WHEREAS, the estimated amount of rentnls, rates, and charges
that will be derived from the said Hydro-Electric System after the same
is completed is the sum of $72,500.00.
AND, WHEREAS, the sum necessary for the payment of interest
during the currency of the debentures to be issued hereunder is $24,750.00
per annum.
AND, WHEREAS, the sum to lie set aside annually to discharge the
debt, authorized to be created by this bylaw, Is tlie sum of $4,108.54 per
annum, and it is proposed to set aside such annual sum by depositing the
same annually at interest in a chartered bank or trust company in Canada
or by tlie purchase of the debentures of the snid City ot a price not above
par or by both such modes of investment, oi) by investing the same in any
manner which a Municipal corporation may legally adopt.
ANIl. WHEREAS, the amount to lie raised annually for the payment
of the said debt is arrived at by estimating the interest to be derived from
the annual investment of such sum at the rate of tliree and a half per
cent (SU % ) per milium.
AND, WHEREAS, the total amount of rateable land and improvements
in the City of Prince Rupert, according to the last revised assessment roll
is as follows:—
Lund, $12,22:1,041.00; improvements, $407,005.
AND, WHEREAS, it is estimated that after the said Hydro-Electric
System is completed, the rentals, rates, and charges to be collected there-
from will be sufficient to pay the annual amounts required to pay tlwj
interest nnd sinking fund required to be raised under this Bylaw, and that
there will be no deficiency to l*- made up under the guarantee to be given
hy the City as hereinafter provided.
AND, WHEREAS, the City intends to issue debentures for the amount
of the said debt, being $550,000, by tlie sale of which to realize the moneys
necessary for the suid purposes, the said debentures to extent for a period
of fifty (50) years and to be secured upon the rentals, rates, and charges
to be derived from the said Hydroelectric System for the supply of water
and electric light and power, and also to be secured by the guarantee of
the City at large.
AND, WHEREAS, tills Bylaw cannot be altered save with the consent
of the Lieutenant-Governor in Council.

MATCH FACTORY
NEW WESTMINSTER—That a
new industry will be started in New
Westminster seems now practically
assured. For some time back negotiations have been going on with a
representative of the Tacoma Match
Company of Tai'oma, a concern which
has practically revolutionized the
match trade in the western states.
Bitterly opposed by the match trust,
this concern has forced its way along
the path of prosperity owing to the
pink and perseverance of those behind tlie venture and the fact that
they possess a process which for
cheapness and efficiency has the old
methods completely beaten. C. C.
Godding, the company's representative, made a visit to British Columbia several weeks ago. He knew the
Britisii Columbia requirements, he
appreciated the opportunity of starting an industry which would be the
first of its kind In the province, and
he carefully weighed all the advantages of various suggested locations.
He has now come to the conclusion
that New Westminster is the most
suitable point for the erection of a
match factory, and when certain arrangements, with regard to the formation of a company here to erect and
operate the factory, which are now
under consideration materialize, the
work of erection will be proceeded
with. It is proposed to call the new
concern the Dominion Match Company, and it is Intended to have
local capital behind it. The opening
of a match factory in this part of
the Dominion is beyond question. The
province of British Columbia uses
one carload a day, of which Vancouver uses one-half. It is proposed to
establish a plant with an output of
one carload a day, so that there will
be from the start in the province
alone sufficient demand to utilize the
whole supply. In the United States
the supply falls short of the demand.
Sixty carloads of matches are used
a day and only forty carloads are
manufactured, the balance being
Shipped in chiefly from Sweden.
RED DEER
VANCOUVER — Satisfactory arrangements have been completed by
the provincial government for the
shipment from England of twenty-
three red deer, wliich will form the
nucleus herd from which it is purposed to stock Vancouver Island and
a portion of the mainland coast district. G. A.Cadoyou-Cowper of the
provincial game department stated
yesterday that the deer would arrive
on the Coast by September' 15. Fifteen head come from the preserves
of C. J. Lucas at Warnham Court,
Sussex, the remained coming from
the estates of the Duke of Sutherland. Work is being rushed on the
stockades at the provincial farm,
New Westminster, where the deer
will be taken care of pending their
distribution. An area of some forty
arces is being enclosed, and it is
expected that al arrangements will
be completed within a fortnight, so
that there will be no delay when the
animals arrive. The action taken by
the provincial government in securing English red deer for this province is purely experimental. About
half a century ago a similar experiment was made by the government
of New Zealand, a county which in
topography and climate resembles not
a little this province. The experiment
undertaken there proved a great success. The deer not only bred pro-
llfically, but through successive generations increased in size until at
the present time the red deer of
New Zealand approaches the eld in
its proportions'. If British Columbia
proves itself as fine a habitat as
New Zealand, sportsmen the world
over will have reason to congratulate
the government upon Its action.
TO ALLAY  DUST
VICTORIA—For a long time the
city of Victoria has wrestled with the
dust nuisance, which has tlie habit
now and then of developing into flagrantly; many experiments have been
tried and many Ideas have been exploded, and still the dust Is in no
less aggravated form than before.
Still another experiment to allay the
nuisance was tried in the city recently, and while It is impossible
to forecast accurate results of such
a test there is a confident feeling
that the method in question has more
claims to consideration than many
of Its predecessors. In this particular instance the material used for
laying the dust was a specially prepared coal tar which D. R, Ker took
the responsibility to introducing to
the city officials. Having previously
explained his idea to the civic authorities, an opportunity was granted him
on a section of Rockland avenue of
demonstrating the capabilities of ii is
remedy. .Mr. n.er, who personally
conducted the experiment, explained
THE

JOURNAL
Office is equipped for all kinds of
Job Work. Prompt attention given
to all orders,   and  work handled by
the most competent printers.
that the system, which he first saw
in operation in the Old Country, consists of the sprinkling of every inch
of the road's surface with coal tar,
applied at boiling point. After the
tar has been smoothly laid the surface is gone over with coarse sand,
the objetc of this being to absorb all
the liquid and at the same time serve
as a binder. By this treatment Mr.
Ker claims that roads will be dust-
less in summer and waterproof in
winter. After the road has received
its first coating the practice can be
repeated veery year in order to keep
the surface in a good state of repair.
Viewed from the cost standpoint,
there is much to be said in favor of
this coal tar method, and if its efficacy is effectively proved by the
test to which it was subjected it is
likely that the city will adopt it, as
something must be done to mitigate
the dust evils. Two cents per square
yard is the cost of the system In
England, so that figure leaves a wide
margin at which the method could
profitably be applied here.
CONSTRUCTION WORK
VANCOUVER—The co-operation
and assistance of the provincial government in the big task of surveying
the waterfalls and rivers and streams
of Britisii Columbia is to be asked by
the Canadian Conservation Commission, according to James White of
Ottawa, secretary, who Is in the province. "He had a conference with Premier McBride and other members of
the cabinet in order to explain the
character of the work, which will
embrace every portion of the province. At the outset attention will
be directed to the rivers and tributaries in southern British Columbia
and in proximity to large centres and
farming communities. The question
to he dealt with Includes irrigation
and forestry conservation, especially
in large watersheds like those of the
Fraser, Columbia and Kootenay
Rivers.
POWER   PROPOSITION
KAMLOOPS—The presentation of
verbal reports by Mr. Dutcher on the
Barriers River Hydro-Electric power
proposition and Mr. .Maxwell on the
proposed new city power plant provided the most important features of
a council meeting In the city recently.
e\lr. Dutcher reported that with Mr.
.Maxwell he had made a preliminary
survey of the Barriere River as instructed by the city, having in view
the securing of 5,000 liorseepower.
His report was not yet complete but
he would give a verbal resume of the
work to the present. They had already examined this river for the
imperial Power Company and the
site chosen for the city was thee same
they had selected for the company.
The intake was about four and one-
half miles from the mouth and the
mill   site   about  one  and  one-half

miles. At or about these points a
200 foot head could be secured
which, with 500 cubic feet peer second would give a theoretical 10,000
horsepower or a practical 6,000
horsepower. The question of creating a storage reservoir on North
Fork Lake had been considered as
a means of controlling the flow. They
were figuring on keeping the cost
as low as possible and the transmission line would prove the greatest
single item of expense. With No.
2 bare copper wire the copper alone
would come to $32,000. Crib work
could be used for the dam but some
concrete would be required for race
and spillway and in the power house.
As a rough estimate they could put
the cost of installing 2,000 horsepower with a plant which could be
increased to 5,000 horsepower at
$120 horseepower. When the details were worked out they would
have a better idea and contingencies
would be provided for by a good
margin. Mr. Maxwell submitted a
sketch plan and specifications for a
steam plant which could also be electrically driven If required. Only a
part of the old plant could be used,
and the plans call for the purchase
of two new boilers, 250 horsepower
each, and the removal of one of the
present boilers to the new plant. A
steam turbine motor and a million-
gallon turbine pump In addition to
the one now in use. This would provide for 2,500,000 gallons per day
and by the addition of another turbine pupmp 3,500,000 gallons would
be provided. The total cost of carrying out the plans as he proposed
would be $95,000. , In answer to a
question, Mr. Maxwell said that this
would fill the requirements of the
city for some years and was arranged
so that it could be enlarged at any
time. It was, however, as small a
plant as could be considered as a
safe reserve for a hydro-electric
plant.

I
i
it was based, to the extent of many
cords in bulk, were printed at tbe
government printing bureau, but remained stocked in the corridors of
parliament when, last session, the
matter came up for further doings.
The Trades and Labor Congress
had had prepared a bill in agree
ment with the evidence brought be
fore the special committee referred
to, and which evidence had been accepted by Mr. King, the chairman, as
satisfactory. This bill was intro-
dined ley Mr. Verville of Montreal
the sole "labor" member, so-called,
in tlie House, it remained on the
order paper for several weeks, and
finally was brought forward for second reading. This was on the evening before the Christmas adjournment, when the galleries were
thronged by several hundred Western delegates, who had come to meet
the government on the grain question. Mr. Verville had very little to
say by way of explanation, but promised that "when the bill is in committee I shall present some amendments which 1 am sure will meet
with the good will of members on
both sides." It should be mentioned
that for this occasion Mr, Verville
had moved from his seat in a distant
part of the chamber to the desk adjoining that of the minister of labor,
with whom he was in close communication throughout the piece.
The Minister
The hero of the evening, in the
cause of labor, was the minister. He
said a great deal, part of his address
being in these words:
"it was never intended by the
Creator that the great mass of men
should live in that way. It was Intended that every man should do his
share of work and have opportunity
to partake of legitimate enjoyment
and develop the latent powers and
talents with which he is endowed by
nature. The working classes have
as much love for their families, as
great regard for domestic happiness
as the rich. They also require a
little enjoyment now and then. The
man on the farm wants the opportunity to go into the city occasionally, the laboring man wants his
evenings the same as other people,
and no one should be obliged to stay
so long at work that he can have
but three hours in the evening to
appreciate his home and develop his
strivings for a better life. Any other
condition of society is not one which
is fitting the prosperity we desire to
see our country enjoy. I am strongly
In favor of any movement which
will help to bring about an eight-
hour day.  .   .   .
"It is to the degree to which the
artisan, the farmer, the great laboring classes are happy and prosperous
and contented. That condition you
cannot have if our laboring men are
working too long hours, are exhausted by toil and denied the opportunity
of developing those attritbutes which
make up perfect manhood. I have
asked the why government should
take an interest In this matter. There
are many reasons. First of all, it
is the duty of the government to
foster citizenship above everything
unless you have men who are doing
something more than mere machines,
unless you have intelligent beings
who know what is going on and have
the capacity to take their share in
the many sidedness of life. The government, recognizing that position,
lias to consider whether it has an
opportunity to further this end. It
so happens that the government is
sometimes in tlie position of an ordinary employer of labor. When it
is. it should he a model employer; It
should do what many an employer,
if lie were free to manage his business as he would like, would seek
to do. There is another consideration also which a government must
keep In mind, a government s a
trustee, it Imlils the funds of the
people; and In dealing with the Industrial problem, it has to take ac-
i<iuiit of that fai't as well, .  .  .
"So, I think tills House can afford
to consider carefully the measure
which ilie lion, member for Malson-
neuve lias introduced. And it will
only be doing what the people of
this county expect it to do If it makes
a beginning by asserting tlie principle thnt the government of the country should he a model employer of
labor. The one consideration that
has to be kept In mind Is this—that
you can begin a reform in two days.
You can start with the broad end
of the wedge, or you can start with
the thin end. You can assert a principle and give it force and power
even though you limit its application
at first. That is what the lion, member has in mind, I take it, In the
suggestions he has made to the
House. He Is prepared to limit his
bill so that it will be along the line
that will appeal to all interests. And,
the lion, gentleman having made that
endeavor, I think it is the duty of
all interests In"the House to accord
him  support  and  give  his  measure
a place on the statute book."
The Amendments
The measure was read a second
time without opposition, but in committee a member objected to going
on with it until he had been put in
possession of the nature of the
amendments which both the mover
and the minister had indicated as
understood between them. There was
a long discussion, the two in possession of the secret being very coy
about disclosing the amendments
hut finally Mr. Verville consented to
state them.    He is thus reported:
Mr. Verville—I have no objection
to stating what tlie amendments are.
1 have nothing to hide from this
House. 1 propose to amend Section
2, paragraphs (a) and (c), by striking out the words "In the open market," and paragraph (b) by adding
the words "or if war is apprehended.
Sections 4 and 5 are to be stricken
out altogether.
Mr. Henderson—How much will
there be left of the bill.
Mr. Verville—I will answer my
lion, friend when I get through. It
is proposed to amend Section 6 as
follows: After the word "contract"
in line 19, insert the words" hereafter made for the erection, remodelling, construction, or repair of any
public building." In line 25, strike
out the words "or permitted." In
line 26, after the words "more than,"
insert the words "forty-eight hours
in any one week or wliere employment is for less than one week." In
line 27, the following words are to
be added to Section 6, "additional
hours, if worked, shall be classified
as overtime and paid for at theh rate
of not less than time and a quarter."
I will read the whole clause.
Mr. Borden (Halifax)—Would the
lion, gentleman read the clause as
he proposes it?
Mr. Verville — The clause as
amended will read:
"Every contract hereafter made
for the erection, remodelling, construction or repair of any public
building of which the government of
Canada is a party, which may Involve the employment of laborers,
workmen or mechanics in the employ of a contractor, sub-contractor
or other person doing or contracting
to do the whole thing or any part
of the work contemplated by the contract shall be required, except in case
of extraordinary emergency, to work
upon or in connection with the work
contracted for, more than forty-eight
hours in any one week, or where
employment is for less than one
week, eight hours in any one calendar day; additional hours if worked shall be classified as over time,
and paid for at a rate of not less
than time and a quarter.
—Then Clauses 7 and 8 are to be
stricken out.
Mr. Verville—Then Clauses 7 and
S are to be stricken out.
Some hon. members—Oh!
Mr. Verville—Hon. members need
not be surprised.
An hon.  member—We are not.
An hon. member—"Neither is the
minister of labor.
.Mr. Verville—Do you want to hear
any more tonight?
Some hon. members—No.
Mr. Borden—Is that all the amendments you  have to propose?
Mr. Verville—There is something
else. 1 propose to substitute the
following for Clause 7:
"Any officer or agent of the government of Canada or any contractor
or sub-contractor thereof who violates any of the provisions of this
Act shall he liable on summary conviction to a fine of not exceeding two
hundred dollars and costs or to imprisonment for not more than six
months, or to both fine and imprisonment."
Taylor's Criticism
Mr. Taylor (New Westminster) —
1 think I am within the mark in
saying that we have had exhibited
here tonight the most extraordinary
performance on the part of a minister of the crown and leader of a
great movement that has ever been
witnessed within these walls. Before proceeding to refer In detail to
the reasons which have led me to
that conclusion, I would like to recall an Incident of last year In connection with a bill of similar title.
That bill was referred by this House,
as some of us thought and said at
the time, to a committee in the hope
that that committee would strangle
It and that nothing more would be
heard of it. The committee considered the bill at very "great length.
They made a report of several hundred pages, entirely favorable, as I
gather, to the principle of an eight-
hour day in government employment.
One would think that the minister
of labor, having presided as chairman over the deliberation of that
committee, and having had as his colleague tlie lion, member for Maison-
neuve, who has presented this bill,
If he thinks this bill is in the interest of labor, would have conferred
with   the  lion,   gentleman   who  pre
sented the bill, and would at least
have given us some idea as to wheth
er he intends to give the bill the
endorsement of the government so
as to secure its passage through this
House. Nothing of the kind occurred,
however. The member for Malson
neuve has been allowed to go this
year as in the past, without any
assistance from the department of
labor, and when he brings in the
bill, a bill which I have every reason
to believe is the product of the
Trades and Labor Congress, or if not,
is the result of deliberation on the
part of the leaders of labor in this
country—when he brings in that bill
in his name, and offers it to this
House, the bill is deliberately stran
gled by the minister of labor, who
should have helped li lm to prepare
a reasonable measure. So I have referred to this as an extraordinary
spectacle. 1 wish now to call attention to the evidence. We have here
a bill submitted as to which we were
asked to vote the affirmation of the
principle, as we did on the second
reading, providing a large measure
of restriction in reference to labor
on government works. So great was
the confidence,, apparently, of the
hon. gentleman on the government
side of the House in the integrity
of the minister of labor, a confidence
voiced by the hon. member for Nanaimo (Mr. Smith), who at one time
sat in this House as a labor member
himself, and who said tp us a little
while ago: "I have an abiding faith
in the integrity of the minister of
labor "
Mr. Smith (Nanaimo)—No. I was
referring to the member for Maison-
neuve.
Mr. Taylor (New Westminster)—
I accept the explanation of the member for Nanaimo; he had not an abiding faith in the integrity of the minister of labor.
Mr. Smith (Nanaimo)—My hon.
friend's capacity for misconstruction is being illustrated. It is a
very unfair statement for my hon.
friend to make. I stated that I had
an abiding faith in the hon. member
for Maisonneuve that he was prepared to make reasonable amendments. I made no reference whatever to the minister of labor.
Changed Bill
Mr. Taylor (New Westminster)—
1 do not think tlie hon. member for
Nanaimo had any occasion to use
words so offensive as which he has
applied to me just now, and I hand
them back to the hon. gentleman.
I was proceeding to say that so great
was the confidence, so sublime was
the confidence, of some of these hon.
gentlemen in their leaders, that,
without knowing the first syllable
of what it was proposed to offer to
this House, they had accepted these
amendments in toto. They had no
reasons to give for their faith, and
they are justified in their lack of
reasons by what has occurred now,
because we find now that what the
member for Nanaimo endorsed in the
bill a few minutes ago has entirely
disappeared. As I understand the
amendments stated to us by the member for Maisonneuve, the bill as It
stands now has simply one enacting
clause. It states simply that on every
contract for any public building to
which the Government of Canada is
a party, not that there shall be only
eight hours of work per day, or an
eight-hour day, but that no person
employed on such contract shall be
required to work more than forty-
eight hours in any one week; that
is, we are asked hy the minister of
labor and by the member for Maisonneuve, who is the labor representative in this House, and by the member for Nanaimo, the ex-labor representative in this House, to enact a
clause wliich says that any contractor
having a government contract, can
say to every person appealing to him
for work: "What is your view with
respect to the hours of labor? You
know parliament has enacted that we
shall not require a man to work more
than forty-eight hours in a week.
Have you any objection to work
twelve hours a day for four days,
and lay off the other two? Have
you any objection voluntarily to
work ten hours a day throughout
the week.' if you have any objections of that kind, 1 am afraid I
do not want you, because there are
any number of persons ready voluntarily to work those hours." Now,
that is what this House is asked to
pass tonight, and I maintain is all
that remains of this famous Eight-
Hour Bill which, for five sessions,
has been before the Parliament of
Canada. Now, having realized that
the only enacting section in this bill
is Section 6, we turn back to see how
the rest of It reads, and we find
that It makes absolute nonsense.
Section 6 has reference only to public buildings In the construction of
which the Government of Canada is
a party, but these remain as the
exceptions:
(a)  To   purchases   made   In   the
open market by the Government of
Canada;
(b) To work upon public, military or naval works of defence in
time of war;      «
(c) To purchases made in the
open market by the contractor, subcontractor or other rpersons referred
to in Section 6 of this Act;
(d) To contracts for the transmission of intelligence;
(e) To contracts for transports
tlon by land or water;
(f) To agricultural work.
Labor    Performance
Now, I ask you, Mr. Chairman
what kind of a labor performance is
tliis? How can it be characterized
as other than absolutely trifling with
this House, as a challenge to the
House by the minister of labor, who
seems to have acted an unnatural
part in strangling the bill of which
he is supposed to be the father? l
say he is trifling with the intelligence of this House, and challenging
us to throw out this bill when it is
presented to us in this absurd shape.
The hon. member for South Cape
Breton (Mr. Maddin) referred to the
proceedings of the Trade and Labor
Congress of Canada recently, In
which contempt was expressed for
the proceedings of this parliament
because of our performance in connection with this eight-hour day
question, and in view of what is now
before us, I ask you whether that
contempt is not justified, when we
are asked in the name of labor to
put upon the statute book of Canada
a measure so utterly unintelligible
and nonsensical as that which the
minister of labor now offers us. Section 3 remains in the bill:
This Act shall apply to work undertaken by the government* by day
labor.
How in the name of common
sense can an act apply to work under taken by the government by day
labor when the enacting sections simply refer to contracts made by the
government with contractors? 1
would submit, that to the intellect of
the minister of labor, who has given
many anxious hours, perhaps, as how
he can blow hot and cold upon this
subject of an eight-hour day on government works. 1 would ask what
he means. Does he think this House
is so bereft of reason as to suppose
that we can seriously accept these
two propositions, that Section 2 and
Section 3 as they stand, have any
sense at all, when taken in conjunction with Section 6?
Mr. King—May I ask what the
hon. gentleman's  question  is?
Mr. Taylor (New Westminster-
Yes, if the minister likes to answer
my question I will sit down. 1 am
afraid that the minister of labor is
a little weary. He arose just now
and I would be delighted to sit down
and let him answer the question.
Mr. King—I was asking the hon.
gentleman what the question was.
Mr. Taylor* (New Westminster) —
The question Is: What is the object
or application of Section 3 of the bill
as it now stands before us?
Mr. King—As I understand, the
hon. gentleman (Mr. Verville) intends to have the eight-hour day
principle apply to day labor performed by the government and also
to contracting.
Mr. Taylor (New Westminster)—
It seems that I have paid too high
a compliment to the intelligence of
tlie minister of labor. If the minis-
er had not consented to strike out
Section e*> then the answer which he
las just now made to the commit-
ee might be accepted as having a
grain of sense in it. But with the
disappearance of Section 5 from this
bill any pretence of sense in the contention that by any possibility Section 3 as it now stands can have
any meaning in this bill has completely disappeared,
Mr, King — The hon. member is
hardly fair. The bill has been presented in a certain form. Some
amendments have been suggested to
It, but it may be that the amendments that have been suggested will
necessitate further amendments to
carry out the original Intention of
Ihe promoters of the bill.
Another Change
Mr. Taylor (New Westminster) —
That is one sentence in which I do
not agree With the minister of labor
—that the amendments which he has
permitted his colleague In this work
of labor reform to propose to this
House to necessitate several other
amendments and that to which I call
attention is one. I am reminded of
the statement by the minister early
this evening that he had conferred
with the introducer of this bill in
respect to the amendments. I understood from his statement then that
the amendments were his own work.
Mr. iving—I do not know that I
gave any reason for that understanding.
Mr. Taylor (New Westminster—
I am bound to take the minister's
statement that he gave no reason for
that understanding. It Is true that
there was a good deal associated with

No putty is needed In such joints.    They are

If these other ranges were built in this way
they might be economical too.

his explanation of this bill that I
entirely fai' to understand. Now, not
to delay the committee, I wish to
state that I am in favor of the principle of an eight-hour day on government works and not only the principle but the practice. I also agreed
with the minister of labor w-hen, with
characteristic eloquence, he dilated
upon the advisability of the government being a model employer of labor. I agreed with the sentiment he
then expressed that the government
should be a model employer. It Is
because I think the government
should be a model in this respect
that I feel thankful when a bill of
this character does come before the
House because I am convinced that
the experience of eight hours labor a
day will prove so satisfactory as to
lead to a general extension of the
principle. But while I admired that
statement of the minister I was disappointed that in connection with
directly controlled by the government he proposed to exempt laborers
from the benefits of the operation of
this act. We have a number of experimental farms controlled by the
government as to which it is quite
practicable to enact that as a general rule at least there shall be eight
hours a day labor. Yet we find them
expressly exempted. We have a number of penitentiaries directly under
the control of the government not
competin with any other interests of
the country. The hours of labor
there are twelve, as I understand it.
To me it Is gross inhumanity that
these employees of the government
should he called upon to work these
hours. J was disappointed that Section 5 as it existed In this bill did
not cover that eiass of labor. I think
it should I would affirm in conclusion, the' I am in favor of the principle and practice of the eight-hour
day on government works. I am also
in favor of the proposition that this
committee shall rise and report progress, because 1 think It Is absolute
folly to attempt to go on with the
bill in the shape in which It tow
stands before us.
Mr. Borden (Halifax) — Will the
bill be   eprinted?
Sir Wilfrid Laurier—Yes.
Mr. Hughes—I understood the
minister of labor to remark that
there would be some further amendments to this bill than those proposed by the hon. member for Maisonneuve.
Sir Wilfrid Laurier—Not at all;
my hon. friend the minister of labor
says that in this bill, like all other
bills, one amendment might suggest
another.
Mr. Borden (Halifax)—May I suggest to the prime minister and the
minister of labor that the bill might
be reprinted, so that it can be distributed during the holidays and
members coming back would know
just what is proposed.
Sir Wilfrid Laurier—Yes.
Progress reported.
