At the big protest meeting held in the Horse Show Buildin
this city on Monday last, Robert Qosden, speaking on behalf of
"Industrial Workers of the World," took occasion to indulge in "*-<_£
of the most reckless and nonsensical utterances   that   have   as  H
dropped from the lips of any one connected with the labor n-aH-
ment and who might be considered either sober or sane.
According to Mr. Gosden, all possible peaceful means to effl
the release of thc persecuted and imprisoned miners would be "__
until the first of the coming year. If the application of such p.-acelB'
means failed to bring about the desired result by that time, otH|
more drastic means were to be adopted. These means were more tIfiS
hinted at by the threat thst Premier McBride and other nit-mber-aH
the Government had better not go out hunting after that date, or tijH
might get shot; they had better get some working man to taste ib*_|
coffee before they drank it, and a million dollars worth of propenf
would be destroyed per week.
Of course everybody knows that such reckless babbling is ag
tributable, as a rule, to mental indigestion and the victim of thjHj
outbreaks is usually, looked upon with that compassion that is traB-
erally accorded to he who has hsd the misfortune to contract ''St.'
Vitus Dance," or the "Seven Year Itch."  -
lf Mr. Gosden is to speak thus for his organization it is up to tfcjgj
body to assume the responsibility. It cannot be avoided upon the
plea of the illhealth of its spokesman. If the utterances of Mr. Goa>
den meet with the approval of the Miners' Liberation League, undsr
whose auspices the aforesaid meeting was held, it is up to such oi'gan^|
sations as may yet remain sane, to sever their connection with the
League at once. The only alternative is that the League at onceijg
pudiates Gosden, his utterances and his organization.
There has been enough folly committed in the name of la! ^^
during the past without now indulging in the supreme asininity af-l
indulging in anarchistic Hari-kari.

There has .never been a more severe and widespread business depression thsn that now being experienced by the business world. From
every quarter of the globe comes the same tale of woe. Business at a
standstill (or at least greatly reduced in volume) and no better prta-*
pects for the immediate future. t *
That the working class is the chief sufferer goes without sayiij-g.
With a purchasing power but barely sufficient, even in the best mt
times, to cover their daily meagre living, as soon as production slows
down they begin to feel the pinch, and if depression continues thsiir
position becomes, in time, all but unbearable. That there Are thaw
sands of workers in this country who have had little or no work duiv
ing' the past summer is well known to every one who cares to obserfa
things going on around him. By virtune of this these workers are jSa
no position to meet the exigencies of the winter season that is now
upon them. That misery will be the portion of many during the co*av"
ing months is a foregone conclusion. There is even less work in sight
now than hss been the case during the summer months just passed*
This condition is especially pronounced right here in British Columbia. '(;'■'..
These are facts well known to every one at all familiar with taa;
labor situation in this province.  But in the face of all this forces srs
persistently at work calculated to still further aggravate the situation by the continued importation of labor from other lands; an importation thst cannot be continued without resort to that deceit and
chicanery thst is the chief characteristic of our profit-mongering civilization.   An alleged "Labor Paper" published not a thousand miles
from this city snd supposed to be the mouthpiece of organized labor,
is even now carrying a half-page advertisement of the Dominion Gov*
eminent holding out golden promises to "farm laborers and domestic"
servants" if they will only come to "this Canada of ours."  Any obj
at sll posted ss to the labor conditions throughout Canada knows ths
such advertisements sre nothing short of swindles of the lowest aa
most vulgar type. ' .,.
That there sre breakers ahead for the working class is beyoB-jL
question.   As bad ss conditions now are they will speedily grosyt-**-
worse.   The concentration of eapital is going on at present at a t*r-?'jl*
rifle rate.   The smaller business concerns are giving up the ghost of.
existence upon every hsnd, snd their erstwhile property snd power
is passing over to the big financial and industrial despots.   At ever**-;.,
tain of the wheel the economic pressure upon the enslaved workiaji]
claa* increases snd it is rapidly nearing the point where it will bs£
come positively unbesrsble.   A sweeping snd drsstic change must
some in the conduct of the industrial affairs of human society, so that
a more decent snd equitable distribution of the things necessary If*
the common welfare may be secured, if the sinking of the working-
elaa* to even lower depths of misery snd despond is to be avoided.
Whatever change may be necessary to effect this csn only bs L
brought sbout by the working clssa itself, for the very reason that, I
the working elsss is the.only portion of present day society whassll
matsrisl circumstances not only determine the nature of that change
but render its accomplishment imperative. It is the only psrt of humaa
society whose material needs demand any radical departure from tha
existing arrangement of industry snd property. It is, therefore, thl—
oaly part of human society thst could be expected to generste tlf- j
fores asesssary to bring sbout such chsnge.
OeoeraJly speaking, the working men of this province hsve bain!
found in tha forefront of the advanced Isbor movement.   In several
oonstitaensiss Socialist members bave been returned to the Provincial
Bouse, While a food vote hss been polled   in   others.   Especially I
throughout the mining districts the labor movement of B. C. is ad-J
vanesd and radical;   The same ean scarcely be ssid, however, of tie!

Comrade JBditor—Aa a common ping
I would like tb lodge a protect again.t
an article written by Comrade MeDon-
old under tke heading of '' Marvellous
Ifisston of Mann," whieb appeared in
the front page of the Western Clarioa
a few week. ago.
Now I don't.know Comrade MeDon-
alA personally. I only know tkat ke
write* for tk* Western Clarion, but I
am fairly naU aeqaeinted witb Comrade Tom Mann. I am a .koemaker,
and not in tk* habit of writ-lag very
ranch, and I think I would he better
able to deal with Comrade McDonald
if I hnd him tn my oM shack for kalf
an hour or so, In order to toll blm brief-,
ly what I think of tke article in question or rather hi. views concerning Tom
Mann nnd hla mi*.ion. I was particularly astonished to- net* such "rush statement* by Comrade McDonald to the effect that "Tom Mann is no common
mortal." "He ia surely a rare combination" and so forth. Now, I don't
think it is in line witk truly Socialist
spirit to be so sareaati. with another
commie, when the only quarrel with
that eomrnde is really a question of difference In tactic aa to how th. alave.
buried in^ the alums'of th* eitie. enn be
made elaas-eonsciou.. Th.t is the only
aUffwene. (as far a. I eaa see) between
tb* Socialiaa*. - of Comrade McDonald
and Tom Mnnn.
Prom the drift of Comrade MeDoa-
aid's article in question I infer that all
labor leaden, particularly Tom Mann,
bav* .till * aril* or two to travel befor* it It possibl* for their theory to
emnneipate the, worklag claas from
wage slavery. In this connection doe.
Comrade McDonald really think tkat a
man of Tom Mean's intelHgenee kaa
never read Karl Man's works, or *v.n
heard of Karl Marat I think nil *vi
dene* goes to prov* that Tom Mann
haa .tudled Karl Mara in no mean order, aad sa' * result of his study (or
rather nnalysis.of same) he knows kow
imponribl. it is to gst the wsg* tl.vet
to read any work* of this uutur*. .If it
wn. left for Karl Man.' and Engel'a
work* to be paaaed round amongst thc
.lave.; Soeialiam would indeed be a long
way off. Th* very -net thst Comrade
'lorn Mann ia erasing up tha very poor-
eat of the proletariat gas* to .how that

Ed. Clarion—Comrade H. Adie sends

I am sending you a eopy of a letter
which has just been rent to m. by the
Secretary of lx*cal Hillcrest, in which
nre given the facts regarding Comrade
Waiserii meeting, at Hlllerwt. Comrade O'Brien ha. just returned from
the Pass, and he verifies the statement,
of Comrade Collinridge.
I hope you will give space in th.
column* of th. CLABION for the publication of thi. letter, in justice to the
comrade, of Hillcrest, aad ia order that
any false imprettioa of th. matter in
question may be corrected. Fraternal-

Burt E. Anderson, Sec'y., Alberta Prov.
Ex. Committee, Box 1196, Calgary.
Dear Comrade—I hav. read your letter in CLABION No. 734, in which you
referred to Comrade Bob Walker's pro-
test in a previous iaaue a* to im- arrangement, for him in Alberta had
failed. I did not Me '.hat issue of the
CLARION ia whirl* Comrade Walker
made ki. protect, but I gather from
your letter in th*- CLABION that place,
like Hillcrest and Coleman were e.pe
cislly referred to.
Now .. to Hillcrest, I hnow that
there wa. no local in actual exittenee
(at that time), but arrangements for
Comrade Walker were in no wtoe
bungled He h.d a good meeting In
Union Hall and a fairly moderate .collection.
Then on the Friday following the
meeting, our union 'of the U. M. W. of
A. granted him 825 nnd the use of the
hall on the following Sunday. A few
of u. got together, advertised the meeting, and decided to form a local, with
the result that a .fairly good meeting
was held. So I think tk* remark, as to
"bungling" were not justlfled so fsr
a* Hillcrest i* concerned.
I might .Ito add that Comrade C. M.
O'Brien addressed a good meeting in
Union Hall on Sunday, Nov. 30.
Thanking you for the good withe,

Coleman, Ah*., Dm. 1, 1913.
Ed. Clarion—I wn* nt Bellevue and
HiUerest Sunday, Nov. 23. At Bellevue
I waa attacked by one of Fr. Donnelly's
victim., who neeused me of insulting
the priest from tke platform. Thia it a
charge thnt no eae who haa heard me
speak can prove. The man also admitted
that ke aas aot at my meeting, but
tkat some one had told him that I .aid
ao and ao. Explanation, were unacceptable, the only manner ot settlement
with him waa the Limerick style, fist
nnd claw. Could. I have forgotten how
I used to be myself, I might have been
ns eager aa he waa. But I realized that
the man waa la the very tame state of
mind that I waa only some five years
ago. The maa wn* hypnotised, and was
not responsible for his action.. His
mind-had been controlled and moulded
alnce hto birth by wage-paid priests.
who are alwaya aad everywhere defending the property and interests of the
ruling claaa, and defeating the aims and
intereat. of the wage-working class.
Although thto man wa* home for repairs, having hnd a tow rib. broken in
tke mine, what I was suppoMd to have
Mid about the priest hurt him more
than the rock, or whatever it was, that
broke hto rib*. Probably, like myself
when I wa. under the influence (not of
drink, but of religion) ke believed that
by billing a Socialist, all bis sin. would
be forgiven him, and when he died he
would go straight to heaven, without
even calling nt the halt-way house.
where most of hto kind are auppoaed to
call. Or maybe, he was seeking favor
ia tb* eyM of bto master, th.t he may
be given a better opportunity than his
competitor, in the struggto for existence in the mine. Aa I had no deairc
to injure anyone, but at the um* time
I am more desirous that* no injury be
done to myself, aa my would-be auail-
ant cant voueh, I aueecaifully pressed
th. gentleman he nnd hi. kind appoint
ed nt the tost election to heep him in
hi. pine, iato my Mr vice, viz., a mem
ber af the Northwest Mounted Police,
and so the incident passed off without i
any serious effect.

I addretted n Inrg* and attentive au
dience at Coleman last night. When
question time came, one of Fr. Don-
nelly', boys sprang into th. limelight.
Apparently he wm too light to settle
argument, in the nm. manner as his
colleague in Bi-Uevue, nnd eo, he confined himself to ashing questions, and
a pretty interesting discussion arose,

OHAPTEB IX (Continued)
"From your own figures, we of the
middle class are more powerful than
labor," Mr. Asmunsen remarked.
'' Calling us weak does not make you
stronger in the face of the strength of
the Plutocracy," Ernest retorted. "And
furthermore, I'm not done with you.
There is a greater strength than
wealth, and it is greater because it
cannot be taken away. Our strength,
the strength of the protelariat, is in
our muscles, in our hands to cast ballots, in our finger, to pull triggers. This
strength we cannot be stripped of. It
is the primitive strength, it is the
strength that is stronger than wealth,
and that wealth cannot take away.
'' But your strength is detachable. It
can be taken away from you. Even now
the Plutocracy is taking it away from
yott. In the end it will take it all away
from you. And then you will eea«e to
be the middle class. You will descend
to us. You will become proletarian..
And the beauty of it is that you will
then add to our strength. We will hail
you brothers, and we will fight shoulder
to shoulder in the cause of humanity.
"You see, labor has nothing concrete
of which to be despoiled. Its share of
the wealth of the country consists of
clothes and household furniture, with
here and there, in very rare cases, an
unencumbered home. But you have the
concrete wealth, twenty-four billion, of
it, and the Plutocracy will take it away
from you. Of course, there is the Urge
likelihood that the proletariat will tak-'
it away first. Don't you aee yo-.r posi
tion, gentlemen! The middle class is
a wobbly little lamb between a lion and
a tiger. If one doesn't get you, the
other will. And if the Plutocracy gets
you first, why it's only a matter of
time when the Proletariat gets the Plutocracy.
"Even your preaent wealth is not a
true measure of your power. The
strength of your wealth at this moment
is only an empty shell. That is why
you are crying out your feeble little
battle-cry, 'lteturn to the ways of our
father..' You are aware of your impotency. You know that your strength
is an empty shell. And I'll show you
the emptin.s. of it.
"What power have the farmers!
Over fifty per cent are thralls by virtue
of the fact that they are merely tenant, or are mortgaged. And .11 of
them are thrall, by virtue of th. fact
that the trusts already own or control
(wbich i. the same thing only better)

"I tell you we ar« on the verge of
the unknown," he insisted. "Big
things are happening secretly all around
us. We can feel them. We do not know
what they are, bnt they are there. , The
whole fabric of society Is a-ttemble
with them. Don't aak me. I dont
know myself. But out of thi. flux of
society something is about to ery.tal-
ise. It i. crystallxing now. The .oppression of the book i. a precipitation.
How maay book, have Been suppressed!
We haven t the least idea. We are in
the dark. We have no way of learning. Watch out next for the suppression of th* Socialist pres. and Socialist publishing homes. I'm afraid it',
coming. W. are going to be throttled."
Braest hsd his hand on the poise of
event, even more eloeely than the rest
of the Socialist., and within two day.
the flrst blow waa .track. The Appeal
to Benson waa a weehly, and it. regular
circulation amongst the proletariat waa
•even hundred and fifty thonsaad. Also,
It very frequently-got out special edt-
tlona of from two to Ive millions. Tbeae
great edition* were paid for and die-
tribnted by th* small army of voluntary
worker, wko kad marshalled around the
Appeal. Th* first blew was aimed at
these special editions, and it was a
crushing oae. By an arbitrary ruling
of the "Poet Office, these editions were
decided—W be not the -regular circulation of the paper, and for that reaaon
wer* denied admission to the mail*.
A week later tke Post Office Department ruled *4kat the paper was sedt-
ttotas, an* barred it entirely -front tho
mail*. .This: wal a fearful blow to the
Boeialiat pro-pagaada. The Appeal we.
de-rperata. It d.viaed a plan of reaching it. -mbaaribera through the
eompaaiee, but thsy declined to ha
it This wss tta end of the Appeal.
Bat not quite. It prepared to go oa
.witk Its book publishing. Twenty
thousand copies of father's book were
in the bindery, and th* pres.es were
turning oil more. And then, without
warning, a mob aroae one night, nnd,
under n waving American flag, singing
patriotic tonga, set fir* to the great
plant of the Appeal and totally dea-
troyed it.
Hew Oirard, Kan*.., -waa a qniet,
peaceable town. There had never been
aay labor trouble. t*-ere. The Appeal
paid uaioa wage.; and, in fact, waa
the backbone of the town, giving employment to hundred, of men and women. It wa* not the eitixen* of Oirard
that eompoeed tke mob. Thi. mob had
linen up ont of the earth apparently,
aad to all i a tent, nnd purpose., lu
work done, it kad gone baek into the

In the old days whea the communal
life of the tribes kad given wny to tke
Patriarchal Period, with ita private
ownership of lead, tta Patriarch, or
father of the family, wishing to mahe
sure that his heir waa hit own flesh sad

hi. legal wife, and whom ao other man
wa* allowed to approach, while at th*
tame time ke had concubines living under his own roof, hmpte verifieatloa
of thia eaa be found In tta early boohs
