DEFEAT OF ElfflTMlOUR LABOR MEASURE
Premier McBride Opposes the Bill while the Member
for Similkameen Retires to Lobby and
Shirks the Vote. If!
Liberal Leader Makes Urgent Appeal to House in Behalf of Smelter Work-
ingmen—Principle of the Bill is an Adaptation of Modern
and Progressive Ideas.     'J0k$
The bill before the provincial legislature to "regulate hours of labor in certain industries" provides that no person
shall be employed in or about anv smelter
sorting, hauling, removing^or smelting
o es or matte in any stage of preparation
for a longer period than eight hours in
any twenty four hours
As the Similkameen is a mining district with the possibilities largely in its
.favor of smelters being established here
at no distant day it will be interesting to
workingmen generally and miners in pai-
ticular to know who among our legisla
tors are friendly to their cause and who
can be depended upon to have the-smelt
i lg business established on an eight hour
basis at the ulzt session of the legislature, if possible. The second reading of
the bill was negatived on the following
division f.
Yeas—Drury, King, Brown, McNiven,
Jones, Davidson, J. A. Macdonald, Henderson, Wells, Cameron, , Hawthorn -
thwaite, Williams, Wilson Green, Garden, Young, Manson—17.
Ways—Murphy, Tanner,  Oliver, Mun
ro,  Paterson,    Hall,   Tatlow,  McBride,
Cotton, Ellison, Clifford, Bowser, Fraser,
Ross,    A.   McDonald,    Fulton,   Taylor,
Macgowan, Grant—19. -.'*•/.-:
Five members were absent, but the
representative for Similkameen, Mr.
Shatford, who was in his seat when the
division bell rang, very promptly leftfit
and went out into the lobby, thus escaping the vote. Following is the speech" of
the Liberal leader- (J. A. Macdonald) on
the second reading of the bill:
Mr. Macdonald said that a savage
attack had been made upon him and the
I/.beral party in the-province by the
member for Nanaimo. That gentleman
had nothing to say against the Conservative members of this house who had
last year, as well as on the present
occasion, bitterly opposed the reductidh
of hours of labor in smelters. This
attack was the more extraordinary because of the fact, which the member for
Nanaimo himself admitted, that he (Mr.
Macdonald) had been largely instrumental in bringing about the voluntary
reduction of hours by the smelter mana
gers; th*at he had advised the smelter
managers to* frankly meet their employees and* discuss the question of
reduction of ho»rs in a manly and
straightforward manner, thus laying the
foundation not only for the bettering of
conditions in smelters but for the per
manence of those conditions in a manner
satisfactory to all parties concerned. It
would seem as if the member for Nanaimo
was more anxiousjo make political capital than to improve the hours of labor.
That he was more anxious-to attack those
who wished to see the industries of the
province flourish alongside of fait and
equitable conditions for the workingman
than to help on the cause he pretends to
espouse. The member for Nanaimo declared that the shortening of the hours
would mean reduction of wages and yet
he seemed to forget that a fair wage was
one of the principles for which organized
labor alwa> s stand. £§foj£
The efforts which have been made and
which have succeeded in readjusting conditions in the smelters of the province
have "shown the feasibility of the plan of
shortening the hours of labor in smelters
and have brjught about conditions en
abling the legislature to deal fairly and
intelligibly with the subject at this
session of the legislature, a condition
which did not exist at the last. Had the
bill ot last session been passed in this
house there can be no reasonable doubt
that a bitter industrial war between employer and employee would have raged
throughout the province. The question
did not affect the workers in smelters
alone, close the smelters and every mine
must close, coal mines and coke ovens
would be seriously affected, business men
ruined and the workmen of every calling
would themselves, be subjected to all the
hardships and privations following in
the wake of a strike. Happily, conditions in the province affecting mining
and smelting have very greatly improved
since last session. The prices of all
metals have advanced very substantially,
and mines which for years have been
operating without profit, and oftentimes at
a loss, are now, owing to these better
conditions, able to make a better showing.
The time is now opportune both by reason
of the better prices just mentioned and of
the readjustment which has taken place
in the hours of labor, to give legislative
sanction to a shorter day and to bring
about that uniformity which I am told
does not exist between smelters at the
coast and smelters in the interior of the
province. While the Liberal party is
always the most advanced in bringing
about reforms affecting the conditions of
labor, it, at the same time does not forget
its'duty to every other class of the com-
niunity, and it does not forget its aim to
make the province a place where the
workers may obtain just and liberal and
fair treatment and where all may enjoy
that prosperity which should be the object
and aim of government.
The principle involved in this legislation is not new, it has been recognized
in this province for years past, it has been
recognized in'-other provinces and in
England, where it has been considered
to be one of the duties of government to
protect the workers in those employments
which are injurious to health.- -The
various factory acts are based upon this
principle. Men are not always in a pos
ition to protect themselves and if there is
any class of employment more injurious
to health and more dangerous to life than
other employments generally the legislature will see to it that those engaged in
such injurious or dangerous employments
are protected with regard to the hours of
labor and other conditions requiring
legislation. The work of a large majority
of those employed about smelters is undoubtedly injurious, mope injurious than
in ordinary occupations, to the health of
those engaged -about furnaces and other
portions of smelters which are affected
by the injurious fumes and dusts insep
arable from the employment. Therefore
the principle of this legisiation falls clearly within what has always been recognized as legitimate interference by the
legislature. There may\ be some proper
amendments i-o be made to the bill in
committee this has been frankly admitted by the introducer of the bill. These
matters are proper to be dealt with in
the committee and such improvements
made in the bill as members may then
suggest. But the bill is in the right direction and I propose to vote for its second reading.
Mr. Hawthornthwaite asked if it were
not a fact that the Granby Co. had paid
half a million dollars in dividends last
year.
Mr. Macdonald replied that he had no
Knowledge except what he saw in the
newspapers that the company had made
profits of something over four hundred
thousand, but that these were the first
substantial profits which had been made
by the Co. after spending a large amount
of moneyand carrying on their operations under great difficulties fpj- the past
five or six years. These profits were
largely the result of the increased price
of copper, which had advanced during
the past year several cents per pound.
Mr. Ellison : "The hon. gentleman says
they will never go back to the twelve
hout system, but can he tell me what
effect this measure would have if the
price of copper went down, as it has in
the past?"
Mr Macdonald in reply said that the
smelters would, in any case, never be
able to go back to the twelve hour system. An attempt to do so would bring
about a strike which would shake this
province from centre to circumference
and surely tfie honorable gentleman who
asked the question does not want to see
this happen.

learned that the disbursement of $3,000,-
000 from Princeton as a base will be made
in thS construction of railways in the
next three years. Contracts west of Keremeos are at present delayed for want of

THE EIGHT-HOUR BILLr*
The defeat of the bill to "regulate the hours of labor in certain
industries "-^-more especially designed to give relief to workingmen
engaged about smelters—reveals a
glaring inconsistency in the member for Similkameen. Last year
Mr. Shatford voted for this eight-
hour measure, but this year his po
litical complexion is of another hue
and he funked when the opportunity came to make good his professed interest in the welfare of
workingmen. If he is not with
the workingman in his reasonable
request for a measure of relief from
the poisonous and unhealthy work
inseparable from smelters, he must
be against him. And that attitude
must weigh in the final summing
.up by the laborer before he can cast
a vote for a~ legislator who by his
own act shows that he is out of
touch and out of sympathy with
the workingman. But Mr. Shatford must follow his leader, Premier
McBride, who rigidly adheres to
the tenets of the Conservative
party—a party that has never identified itself with movements which
aimed at the social uplifting and removal of disabilities of working-
men.
Conservatism conserves, preserves
and clings to old customs and traditions ; its adherents are largely
made up of real and imitative aristocrats. A political party with
such ingredients can hardly be expected to favor shorter hours of
labor, no matter if conditions are
unfavorable to health. Such a party,
would rather favor sixteen hours
(slavery time) of labor a day than
eight. It does not believe in free
arid equal education for all the people, as is observed in some old countries with an "established" church
and a conservative government.
" What do you want to educate the
masses for ? " say some of the conservatives, and by their votes at
Victoria some legislators are asking
" Why do you want to give the
workingman an eight-hour day ; it
will encourage idleness, &c."
In ten of the United States eight-
hour statutes have been passed and
a continental agitation is now going
on to make it the uniform day for
every industry and laborer in the
States and Canada. Eight hours
is the natural and logical division
of the twenty-four into labor, rest
and mental culture. Without these
three essentials, and in proper proportions and order, the working-
man is badly handicapped. He
cannot hope to attain to the higher
callings and professions while these
conditions exist. There are philosophers shovelling muck, poets chopping wood, astronomers behind the
counter, professors who are cooks
and statesmen who are setting t3rpe.
With eight hours for mental culture
some Shakespeare or an Edison
in the humble ranks of labor now
may appear on the horizon of the
near future.
Mr. Shatford missed a grand opportunity to prove his friendship
for labor by absenting himself from
the house when the vote to provide shorter hours for workmen in
a deleterious calling was about to
be made. Of course he will be very
repentant for his act when the next
election campaign is on, but that
will hardly suffice with the intelligent workingman. To represent
the Similkameen well and truly a
man should be fully abreast of this
progressive age and in harmony
with legislation which tends to relieve oppression and rectify wrongs.
The Similkameen is a working-
men's" riding and their interests
must not be jeopardized by a vacillating, inconsistent misrepresenta-
tive.
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
There is a strange disposition in
some towns and cities to retuse the
gifts of Carnegie and Rockfeller
on the ground that their money is
tainted. Did it ever strike these
purists that a considerable revenue
is derived from vice in every city
and there is no hint of it being
tainted. Notorious rich men have
made public gifts in many place and
no word of taint. But because the
money comes from the men named
above it is all wrong. "Never look
a gift horse in the mouth" is an old
and wise saying. Take the money.
It cannot taint education, nor harm
the poor student or reader in a public library, nor stop healing or comfort in a hospital'. Giving is one
of the noblest qualities in man,
then by all honorable means encourage it in rich and poor. If the gift
is prompted by wrong motives, the
giver alone is to blame. Mr. Carnegie is invited to provide a public
library for'Princeton—no questions
will be asked.
A phase of the eight-hour labor
problem that has been overlooked
is the important one that nearly all
factories and industries could be
worked double shift, thus requiring
less machinery and equipment and
thus effecting a general saving in
capital outlay.

THE INCONSISTENT | MAJOR."
Open letter to "Major" Megraw :
Sir—Your reply to my letter of Feb. 5
regarding Mr. Shatford's retirement from
political life has at last reached me, and
after taking so long to appear, I must say
it is one of the clumsiest attempts at
dodging an issue that I ever met with.
You could not make a straightforward
denial that Mr. Shatford made the statement I ascribed to him, because it is too
well known that he has repeatedly mide
such "breaks" to members of all the dif
ferent parties in a still hunt for a little
taffy to feed the vanity of his small j
mind.
You try, however, to insinu ite untruthfulness on my part and to blame me for
writing the rumor in various forms to
different publications. I wrote tut the
one item—that to the Vernon News. As
regards my reputation .for truthfulness,
I am willing to leave that matter to the
many who know me in every part of the
Similkameen, confident that it will not
suffer in comparison with yours or that
of your employer—the most luminous
star in the political firmament of the
Gazette office.
The depth of guile you attribute to me
with a half envious admiration is very
amusing You profess to see in my work
the fine Italian hand of a master craftsman, who, although a troublesome prob
lem to the 2x4 politician you are obliged
to supportf is so resourceful and clever in
his tactics that it is impossible to withhold a certain amount of respect for his
ability as a fighter. Quit this attitude of
"a disciple at the feet of Gamaliel," Major; it ill becomes you. Brush the dust
off your trousers and stand up.
It is a little to your credit that it took
you two. weeks to decide to publish the
particulars regarding the article referring

THE INCONSISTENT "MAJOR."
[Concluded from page 3.]
to Mr. Howse. Plainly, professional decency still struggles to make itself felt in
you, and had your .case been less desper
^ate it might have*triumphed Your exposure^) was not for the purpose of proving .anything in particular, but to close
the columns of the Star to me, if possible,
in order to save yourself and friends from
any further punishment at my hands.
Your object is so obvious thai anyone
could fathom it. But after all your~fine
talk in a late Issue about rejecting unsigned contributions, &c , &c, what a
pitiful figure you have cut by your own
confession. The desire to appear at all
consistent in the public eye should have
saved you from- this pitfall. The article
was sent you enclosed with a letter plainly stating that it was intended for a joke.
Did your righteous soul rise in rebellion,
and did you promptly an'd indignantly
fling it back in the face of its author ?
Not at all : On the contrary it pleased
you mightily and you published it with
large headlines in a prominent position.
In doing so you accepted full responsibility for it. When it appeared you also
revelled in the uproar it created, as a let
ter from you at that time amply testifies.
But the closing paragraph of your reply, in which you attempt to stampede
the sympathies of your readers by telling of the abuse that was poured upon
your defenseless head because of my evil
doing is altogether the most laughable
feature of all. As an object of sympathy
you completely fill the eye and the imagination. The sadness of your plight
would bring tears to the eyes of the most
pitiless. "Really, "Major," you have
missed your calling. You should have
been a circus clown or the editor of a
comic paper. Geo. E. Winkler.
