class-consciousness of the membership of the organizations in   ^^^
interests the papers referred to are published, and the direct i'<fi?$$
of the necessarily undisguised nature of the robbery to which fl
are subjected.
So far from being "corrupt,"  or  "recreant  to  their di-ft-*
those who direct the forces of government in B. ('. have demonwa*
ted that they have the correct conception of their proper funcwat*^
and that the confidence reposed in them by those in whose ii»!**y
ests they were elected was not misplaced.   Government  is always
in the interests of those who govern, and never in the interest! af
the governed.   It is, always has been since the division of sot$ety■•
into classes, and will continue to be as long as classes exist, thef re*
pressive force in the hands of the   ruling   minority  of  propiftyi

could, safeguard tbe interests of both, and the line of cloavagei'ber;.
tivecn the classes is now getting so apparent that no pn-tenci i#:
made by the henchmen of the ruling class who hold the rein* af
government that they are there for any other purpose than £ka
protection of capitalist interests.   All  over the capitalized wiMj|*
governments are rapidly discarding the velvet glove, and displsyi-'-'
ing the mailed fist as the answer of the ruling elass to the growth itf
class-consciousness amongst their victims.   So-long as the worlajwi
were contented with their position as the mudsills of society, as t_e J
hewers of wood and drawers of water, the display and exercisegff
the final argument—force—-was unnecessary, the result being resell*'

Tk* drop ia tt* Socialist vote is *T1
the more remarkable to at tt* atottt*
stag election tke party was able to
iaerasse ito vote to 118,000 from 97,000
In 1909. This was, of coarse, from a
■ore Bumerooa electorate. Oae of tk.
reason, for th. setback ia ao donbt the
abar-ae* of say harming qaettioa; al«o
th* fart that tke party was really ea-
gag*d 1* defeadiag the status quo on
matters of taiatioa aad *due*tioB.
Ia tt* last Parliament tk* Liberal*
had seventeen scat*, the Radicals seven

parties formed the Hoe of the Left
against tt* tweaty-aiae Catholic aad

twenty-nine members aad tba Conserve

win three seats st tb. second ballot,
to hav* a clear majority ia th* House

A good deal of th* drop la th* Socialist vote may be du* to this agree-

Bom* of us hav. had onr heart,
wrong by th* rtori*. of how a ham-
handod custom, inspector swooped
down upon .ome dainty lady returning
from Ejirope, grabbed h.r, held her fast
and .nipped from her hat it. erowaiug
glory, tbe fin. fllamented aigrette.
Thi. beautiful millinery ornament i.
merely the tail feather, of th. oeprey,
tt. mother oeprey, grown ai th. tin*
.he i. covering her egg*. When to.
is killed to make aa expensive ornament for a lady*, kat, th. eggs msy be
left to rot and the young to starve. But
tbe rtylea must be followed.
Now there come. * revelation that
free, from all reproach th. ladle, who
wear these beautiful ornaments. The
feathers are not plucked from the
bleeding mother bird. They are arti-
acial, made by mere women aad children worker, in th. ten.nMaJ*.& Pxrit
and other Europeaa cities.
The wonderfully delicate, alssble,
flexible, pink, sensitive flngsrs oft ekli-
dren have worked thos. marvelous
.pray.. Instead of committing the
crime of killing a bird we have put a
child to work. Tho** little haads,
thos* dimpled, divia* little hand., made
beautiful the hat* deaeeratad by the
coarse haad* of inspectors.
So it is possible that the hat adorn
meat* of tbe ladies so ruthlessly assailed will be restored, with proper
apologiee, as ia the eas* of young Mr.
Ooelet, to whom a magirtnt. made
proper amend, and knocked ki. alleged
forehead three time* o* tke Soot.
If we had known all that wa*
involved in thia adulterated, artisrial
plumage whieh our society people took
for real, if we had known tkat It wa*
oaly child labor, aad art birds, w*
eould have put a wekomiag commit

local, which haa beea laboring under
exceptional difficulties during the part
year. The panic, ia conjunction witk
the uaual falling off ia iatereet m.ai-
fested by party member, following a
strenuous campaign, resulted ia many
of tke most effective worker. Mattering in Marek oV other pasture., aad the
work connected with th* local haa had
to be haadled by f.wer comrade* aader dieeouraging circumstance*. That
they have passed the test is evidence
that they are not mere stove-pipe philosophers.

auk* kia trip a success. Fraternally,

Talk  about the shade of th. lone-
some pine!    It  wasn't near so inter-
eating M the shade of the city wharf
on that memorable    day.    Prominent
citizen* of aU shades, some still duing
business at the old stand, many, alas,
gone broke in tbe financial pinch, were
there, and loud and fervent were th.
prayer, offered up   to   Capital's God
that  prosperity should  once more  hit
North Vancouver with a kiss, and enable .aid citizens to once more thine
1 around, m in tbe dear dead days gone
j beyond recall.
'    All   the   speeches   centered   around
' Prosperity,'' which word should lose
the "8" and the "I" and you get the
meaning correctly, but quotations from
one will serve.
The vice president of the N. V. Board
of Trade was so full (of optimism we
presume) that he gave us a picture of
many great trancontiuental systems
running into "Our City;" the shore
line lined with a continuous succession
of factories employing a multitude of
workmen, with an immense "local payroll," (mark the "local," This forthe
benefit of the cockroaches present),
.ending local products to the four corner, of the earth, and N. V. would become one of the biggest ports on the
Pacific coast, etc.
The writer eould bear no more. He
left, and dreamed all night of the coming wealth, when suddenly that damned
whittle on the only locomotive went
off, and he was awake once more to
the possibilities lying before the average man wbo works, thut is. of failing
to be on time on his master's job.
But never mind, we are very hopeful
that some day we will get hold of that
wealth, by united effort.

CHAPTEE VIII (Continued)
"Not when the government suspends
civil law. lu that day when you speak
of rising in your strength, your
strength would be turned against yourself. Into the militia you would go,
willy-nilly. Habeas corpus, I heard
some one mutter just now. Instead of
habeas corpus you would get post mor-
tems. If you refused to go into the
militia, or to obey after you were in,
you would be tried by drumhead court
martial and shot down like dogs. It
is the law"
"It is not the law!" Mr Calvin asserted positively. "There is no such
law. Young man, who have dreamed
all this Why, you spoke of sending the
militia to the Philippines. That is unconstitutional. The Constitution especially states that the militia cannot be
sent out of the country."
"What's the Constitution got to do
with it!" Ernest demanded. "The
courts interpret the Constitution, and
the courts, as Mr. Asmunsen agreed,
are the creatures of the trusts. Besides,
it is as I have said, the law. It has
been the law for years, for nine years,
"That we can be drafted into the
militia*" Mr. Calvin asked incredulously. "That they can shoot us by drumhead court martial if wc refuse!"
"Yes," Ernest answered, "precisely
"How is it that we have never heard
of this law!" my father asked, and I
could see that it was likewise new to
"For two reasons," Ernest said.
"First, there has been no need to enforce it. If there had, you'd have
heard of it soon enough. And secondly,
the law was rushed through Congress
and the Senate secretly, with practical-

Among tbe "important raying, by
important people," which are chronicled from day to day by tho press, a
recent utterance of Lord Mllner, at the
Midland Institute, Eng., to given a
prominent position.
Milner to an important person, no
doubt, he being one of the South African millionaire gang who engineered
the Boer war, destroyed the two Dutch

of the Band.
Hto utterance may be i-aportani alio,

best opportunities at preeent for exploitation. Tke growing preponderance
of Japaneee capital in China aad Ear-tern Asia, hs. presumably removed that
part of the world from the position of
the "last and greatest commercial
prize," which it occupied until a few
year* ago. Africa haa already been
partitioned for exploitation, but, aa
Milner rays, "tke vast continent of
South America lie. open."
It to almost a stroke of genius to
describe "capital" going out racking
whom it may devour, a. a toiling,
