There is an old saying that "the
greater tbe truth the greater the
libel." If we want any vivid instance
of its proof we can Und ample at the
present time.
The reaaon is very simple, becaase
this ia an age of flagrant hypocrisy.
Not only are present institutions ex- i
ample, of cant aad humbug, but the
very system, even down to Hs base,
is raised upon a foundation of hypocrisy.
In feudal times the serf-slave wm
forced to apply hU labor-power to the
land becaase his lord .nd master exerted a power over him.   Thi. power
he had to respect and bow down to, becaase it was the power of ownership
of tbe means whereby the slave got
his subsistence.    At the same time, it
was easy to see upon what the feudal
barons were able to live so well and
lavishly.    The land  was divided into
several parts, one of which was loaned
to the serf, and the others had to be
worked  (allowing for summer tallow)
by the serf for his master.   The latter
produced from his small piece of land
suffieient to keep him in good working
condition, and  all the prodact of his
labor on the lord's land want to the
lord.   From this it can be easily seen
th.t tbe degree and process of exploitation was not cloaked or covered up.
Everything was as clear as daylight to
the serf, and inasmuch as this wa. so
the feudal  system had not  the hypocritical base we knew and see in th.
present capitalist system.
Capitalism is a different system altogether, instead of loaning a piece of
land to the slaves and making them
produce for the masters, in such a
manner as to make the eiploitntion
manifest, tbe capitalists go a different
way altogether. Wages are given the
.laves in retarn for their labor-power,
and they aro made to believe that they
have received tb. full product of their
toil when they receive their wages at
the end of the day, week or month.
The period of time worked for the mas
ter is not distinct from that in which
they work for themselves—i. e., producing the equivalent of their wages,
the  equivalent  of the  serf's  portion,

The agitation started for the release
of the B. C. miners recently railroad
ed to jail with outrageous -«**»««»»
frivolous charges, the use of the pol ti-
S power to "rush their organi-lion
and their fighting spirit, provides aa
opportunity for the disssmuation of
the truths of Socialism that rarely
comes our way, and all fW««*
of the party are requested to make as
much of th. chance to drive home th.
lessons to be derived from it as possible. The party has two representative, on the committee of the «. u.
Miners' Liberation League, and has assumed an native part in the work of
the Le»gue to date. Locals and organ
iwrs are requested to give all the assistance in their power to further the
objects of the League, by throwing
open their platforms to speaker, who
can place the facts of the struggle before their audienees, selling the button, to be issued by the League a* a
means of raising funds, and generally
doing their best to make the use of the
political power by the B. C. government the theme of their agitation until
a baek-down is accomplished, and the
men released or the .entence. reduced.
These are not ordinary, horny-headed
slaves, imbued with capitalist conception, of their  position  and  function.
They are revolutionists, aad during the
month, of their imprisonment tley
have lost none ot their fighting spirit.
After the seateneee. which committed
them to jail for terms varyiag from
two year, to Sve months ftey marched
between ranks of special poliee and
military staging the Marseillaise sad
the Bed Flag. Their sele anxiety la
that the striker, left outside will compromise in the dispute to order to get
them released, sad the)- have intimated
th.t they are willing to serve ton
yean, if it will serve to awaken the
rest of the workers of Oaaads to tke
fact that they have so hope hot to the
social revolution. Whea oae consider,
that they have been kept la jell for
month, without bail being allowed
them, denied all the privilege, usually
allowed prisoners awaiting trial, and
treated aa if they had already been
tried, convicted aad sentenced to open
court, the mettle of which they are
made to revealed. The Socialist movement of Canada need, not be ashamed
of tbes. men, and aa united and continued effort to release them will
arouse such an agitation and intereat
that the message of Boeialtom will he
carried Into even- corner of the land,
and the way made easier for ^future
education and organisation.
Vancouver, Nov. 12.—-After a strenuously opposed application this morning bail was granted to Jack Place, M.
L. A., the Socialist representative from
Nanaimo, who to under arrest on a
charge arising out of the Nanaimo
riots. The argument which took place
in Chief Justice Hunter's chambers
was between Mr. I. Bubinowitz, who is
acting as counsel for Mr. Place, and
Mr. A. D. Taylor, K. C.,who appear.
for the crown. B*-*' was fixed in a sum
of t2,000.
Others who secured bail thto morning were Mr. James Hodgkinson, a well
known Nanaimo tradesman, whose own
recognizances for |1,000 are to be accepted, F. Banks, W. Banner, Will'->m
Cummings, Sam Dickenson, William
Flockhart, B. Oowland, James Richmond, Alf. Wardell, all at * 1,000 and
sureties each; R. Farrell, Henry Meikle,
Isaac Story, in bail of -""1,500 and
sureties each; William Wardle, R. W.
Smith, Pat kulgrew, Arthur Jordan, B.
Griffiths, in bail of *2,000 and sureties
each, and William Hoym, $3,000 and
sureties for an equal amount.
Chief Justice Hunter will hear further application, this afternoon. Mr.
Arthur Leighton and Mr. L Rubin-
owiti .re appearing fo r the aeeused.
—Pre*, item.
Not.—The protest meeting in the
Dominion HaU was held on Monday. On
Tuesday 49 application, for bail were
granted. (The list will be found in
another column.) Up to the time, of
going to press a total of 68 will have
been temporarily -freed. Up to the
present time every- effort to get any
of the minera out on bail had, ait*
very few exceptions, been defeated.
Thto sudden change of front on the -part
of the government has undoubtedly
been produced by the realisation that
the agitation initiated hy .the League
is going to get widespread support,
and will be conducted in earnest. Tbe
pro-meet of countless meetings of a
similar character to be held all ever
the Dominion^-erith the extreme probability that the resentment thus
aroused by the knowledge of the real,
facta by th* worker* will be expressed
at the polls ia the forthcoming elections to enough to make tkem eaa *
-halt. No consideration of fairaa*. or
common decency will influence them.
Political expediency to their only compass, and if the League gets the aame
support in the other industrial center,
as ws. shown in Vancouver on Monday last, thoae now serving the ferocious sentence, to the provincial jail,
will be speedily released.

prostitution a disgrace, and crime an
every-day occurence, but in order to
change the social structure of such
rotten condition. ,you My we must
change human nature, and that ean
only be accomplished by first changing
the heart. ***
I have never yet seen a hungry man
searching for anything for his heart.
Why man! the fiercest denisen of the
forest will pass you by on a full stomach. Place any living creature in an
environment void of the nutriment
necessary to sustain and develop life,
and it will surely deteriorate and ultimately die. Scientists tell us that

After a long sojourn, no doubt, upon
the earth, man discovered lire, and
when he found fish waa good to eat, he
threw off the nature of a ravage and
became a barbarian. A. time progressed man learned how to make pottery, how to domesticate animals, and
when he discovered how to till the .oil
and raise cereal crop., he again throw,
off the nature of a barbarian and become, a civilized being.
The progress made by our primitive
ancestor., in proportion to their knowledge, regarding human nature, waa far
in excess of tke various periods recorded in the history of civilisation.
Ever Sine* th* Dawn of Civilisation
human society haa been based upon
conditions entirely eoatrary to nature
itself. Th. nature of a half starved,
chained and down-trodden slave would
be hard to change. Even the Freed-
men of Greece and Rome that paid the
price according to their ability to the
ancient Ood. for their release from
elavery, labored under the tyrany of
viciou. ruler., that eliminated all possibility of developing a higher type of
manhood. When those 3,000 musicians
of th. ancient union of artists performed before King Alexander, the
king remarked to kia companion that
those people showed signs of bad
breeding. Aristotle replied tkat they
were too poor to-be good. Tke light
of poverty and misery burned at on.
end of tke candle, and with the flame
of epieurtom and corruption at the
ether, the alave empire, of Greece and
Borne crumbled into decay. lhe
privileged elaase. of the feudal age.,
coupled with the power of the church,
preyed upon human ignorane. and su-
peratition. Completely ignoring the orthodox formula*, they trtole, right and
left, communal land* aud property—
tked turned loo*, their victim., cresting a teetering .ore that no amount of
heart-treatment would ever cure.
The capitalist to free themaelves
from tho fetters of feudalism never for
ono moment took into eoa.ider.tioa
tke changing of human nature to et-
tabltok a new .ociety. That sophisticated ery of liberty and freedom and
the power of the ballot worked tke

might live.

Just a few words they were that met
my searching glance In tbat newa
paper, and yet tbey afforded a mental
rehearsal of days gone by. They unfolded to my vision certain pages of
the manuscript of my childhood, covered by Indelible writing. I was
twelve then, and considered the burden of our family, for while all of
tbem, sisters aad brothers, and even
mother, contributed towards tbe
family fund., I aat around, idle, unable
to start anything. The selling of
newspapers, which vocation was wide
open to me, 1 found Impossible. I
tried it once,, opened my mouth,
shouted, or rather ■tommerod, "Star!
Th* Witness!" Something choked
me; 1 felt hot and cold wave* run
down my spine; my face burned; my
voice sounded strange to me. and tbe
mass of people seemed to store, eome
with sympathy, others with mocking
smiles. "Star! The Witness!" No;
It did not succeed, and, loaded with
shame and disgrace, I gave It up—-
"Good for nothing."
That feeling took po**es*lon of me
more and mom, and tbe remarks of
our neighbors helped to strengthen
that conviction. The nicknames given
me by the boys la the neighborhood
made me ferocious, and created in me
tbe feeling of utter sadness and despair. Otttimes the cruelty of children toward* each other exceed* tbat
of men. Only those wbo passed
through such experience will understand my plight My pants being
being three-quarter length, reaching
midway between ankle aad knee, mad*
me the easy target of their wit, and
"Greenhorn" wa* tbe terrible invective
hurled at me whenever I exposed
myself to my tyrants. My quiet disposition snd thoughtful mien Irritated
tbem and fostered feelings of revenge.
I ws* sorry for poor mother, for she
was ln a constant torment concerning
me. Besides cooking and keeping
tbings tidy and clean, she yet found
Ume enough to manufacture fancy
comforters for rich ladle*. She
came ever more grouchy and often
fell into cranky moods, when weeping
and lamentation were the inevitable
results. She then cursed her life
that demanded so much toil, uttered
my' father's name vehemently with
remarks that Were far from nattering,
and- called down heavens damnation
on poor Columbus for having discovered America. The land of dreams
turned out to be hell on earth for her.
When those moods passed. and gave
place to her ordinary gentle disposition, she would sit next to me and
tenderly bending her head to mine
would call me all the dear name* she
could think of, but eventually concluding with tbe same old complaint
on my idleness and good-for-nothing
I was also frequently reminded of
my two younger brother*, who turned
in every night, each with a little ram
from the .ale of papers. I could not
stand the jeering and sneering any
longer, and so ln the mornings usually
left, pretending to be on the lookout
for some lob, but ln reality climbing
the mountains, where, provided with
bread and a book, I remained till
night crept in.
One day the butter man called on ua.
For tbe lack of a better name we knew
him by tbat title. Besides the sale of
butter he also occupied himself with
such things ss matchmaking, employment and a newsagency, as well ss the
sale of prayerbooks about the time
the Hebrew holy-day. approached. To
the marriageable daughter* of Israel (most readers
he was a species of amour, notwithstanding hto rough little beard aad
greasy clothes. To the more mature
ladles he was the peace-maker between
them sad. their husbands, and to the
•hrlvelled-up grandmothers be served
is a medium for gossiping.
At this moating mother once more
came upon her pet subject, namely,
poor me, and from the lips of onr ssge
came tbe Irretrievable advice, "Apply
to the cigar factories; tbey hire little
boys and girls oa condition tnat ther
sign sgreementa for thro* year* a*
apprentice* for the munificent remuneration of |1.00 per week- for th*
first year, ft.00 for tbe second, and
13.00 for tbe third year." But after
each time, which to me appeared as
brief as thro* daya tbey coald earn
•ood money anywhere. Wbat a line

was to me! My Imagination did not
require anything more seductive to
work on, to spin cobweb* of the rich-
eat yam. Tbat night I bad very little

' Next morning fsther snd I went to-'
gather to the cigar factory referred
to by the buttormaa. Tbe owaer of i
tb* establishment wss very popular
among th* Jews •■ a philanthropist
and a klndhearted man. Tbe office
was almost Ilk* th* on* I saw depleted In my dream. Around me were the
bent heads of men and women book-
keener* peeling over large ledgers,
'dribbling without a halt Girts
ticked on machines, and on* with an
iron ribbon around her head sat before the 'phone exchange. The manager, a nice healthy man of rather
gentle appearance, was comfortably
seated tn a greet armchair dlscoiir*-

Thus 1 mused during the time we
were Ignored by the gentleman. He
at last noticed us snd copdescending-
ly Inquired of fsther all the particulars about his son. Meanwhile I drew
comparisons between this lady and
mother. Why was mother not as
graceful aad shapely as she, although
mother was only thirty years old?
It Is Impossible," I heard the mighty
one remark. "Impossible. He must
be fifteen years of age to be employed
wltb ua" It waa a stunner to both of
us and poor father shrank to invisibility wbaa confronted with this fresh
obstacle. He looked like a man who
heard hi* own death sentence pronounced. We mad* for the door wtth
despair in oar hearts, when we heard
» soft kindly "stop!" It wss the
voice of my sngel. After a short
heated discttsalon that ensued between the tedy and gentleman, the
latter turned to ua with tbe glad
tiding* that I wa* accepted: Undoubtedly due to bl* wife, he said, wbo Insisted upon his conferring thst favor
on us. She reoognlsed tn me a clever,
willing hoy aad wished to see me get
on. He himself could not desist to
her pleadings and wishing us good
lock be declared the matter setUed.
I signed the three-ye»r agreement and
was now on tb* way to become a self-
made man.
Oa the following day 1 was there
awaiting a halt hour before tbe door*
opened. In the workshop to my
amasement 1 found over a dosen chll-
drob about my ag* and some still
younger. Perbap* tbay also obtained
their ]ob* through tb* pleadings of
my noble benefactress. From morning to dusk we rolled bunches. Some
ot the children **ng sons* in different
language* whenever the foreman waa
abaent. I listened to the plaintive
melodic* of the Roumanian mountain*,
the memory of wbich .hall never
leave me. BumIsb and Yiddish song*
dealing wltb mothers waiting for the
letter of a far away child, or witb the
prood cedars of Lebanon. Aad so the
time passed ta dire monotony for
throe montha 1a succewlon, st th* end
of which all my dreams hsd left me
and all signs of my old ambition van-
tahed. Three month* ot enervating
toil paased. when once more I caught
a glimpse of my benefactress. She
entered, leaning on the arm of her
husband, to pay us children a visit
The same perfume reached my no.
trlls.- the sine captivating figure
caught my eye. I could not help looking at her sideways with devouring
eyes. She hsd naught bnt sweet
smiles and flattering words. Some of
us hsd even the good fortune to feel
her Jewelled, delicate hand on our
heads. She went as she entered, like
a dream, leaving us again in obscurity snd gloom. Tbe girls discussed
her many virtues wltb burning eye*,
marvelling about the beauty of ber
dress, ber tin* bearing and great diamond earrings. Every one of her motions was cited, every piece of her
finery went through a strict analysis.

that they ean do nothing oa that account. An economic elass is held *t

For the next  few weeks let every
party member strain himself or benelf
to get tubs.   Tbe list on another page
shows that many have taken up their
share of activity by sending in oae or
more subs, and if you all did aa much
as the least of these every week our
trouble, would be over.    Make    it    a
point  to get  at least  one .ub every
week, no matter if it be only a 25-sent
one.   That will give us . new reader,
and we will be able to talk to another
slave  for  three  months.    An  ever-ex-
pnnding circle of new reader, will give
us more rVieiaUsts,    more   organiter.,
more funds, and provide the material
for making the principle,   of   revolutionary Rociatinn familiar to the Canadian'workers.   That is our " ---•-—■

Th. Longshoremen hero are after an

Federation called upon our old friend,

Shipping Federation look cheerful and

One conservative shining light said
that he waa for Mm city first and the
Conservative Party after. There', a
reason! With the loss of the steam

loss of trade locally, consequently he

much fuss about it because more .hip.

Among th* Collegians.
The Intercollegiate Socialist Society
continued to make great progress during tbe past year. Increasing the number of undergraduate chapters from 49
to 64 and the graduate chapter, from
• to 12.
Some colleges seem to have been permeated with Socialism as shown by the
discussions of students in classes, th.
extensive reading of Socialist books
aad the large attendance at the many
Socialist meetings and lectures.
Auxiliary committees are being
formed in the different sections of the
country for the purpose of pushing, the
work ia their district*.
A conference of collegians from the
different countries will probably be
held during the next International Socialist Congress at Vienna.

CHAPTER Vm. (Continued.)
"But the trusts themselves arose out
of competition,"    Mr.    Calvin   interrupted.
"Very true," Ernest answered.
"And the trust, themselves destroyed
competition. That, by your own word,
is why you are no longer in the dairy
The first laughter of the evening
went around the table, and even Mr.
Calvin joined in the laugh against himself.
"And now, while we are on the
trusts," Ernest went on, "let us settle
a few things. I shall make certain
statements, and If you disagree with
them, speak up. Silence will mean
agreement. Is it not true that a machine-loom wlll weave more cloth and
weave more cheaply than a hand-loom t''
He paused, but nobody spoke up. "Is
it not then highly irrational tu break
the machine-loom and go back to the
clumsy and more costly hand-loom
method of weaving!" Heads nodded
in aequiesence. "Is it not true that
that combination known as a trust produces more efficiently and cheaply than
can a thousand competing small concerns!" 8till no one objected. "Then
is it not irrational to destroy that cheap
and efficient combination!"

Here arose dissent. There was a shaking of beads, and muttering* arose.
"All right, then, you prefer to be
anachronism.," Ernest laughed. "You
prefer to play atavistic roles. You are
doomed to perish as all atavisms perish.
Have you ever asked what will happen
to you wben greater combinations than
even the present trust, arise! Have
you ever considered where you will
stand when the great trusts themselves
combine into the combination of combination. It is the winning side. Come
and political trusts!"
Ho turned abruptly and irrelevantly
upon Mr. Calvin.
"Tell me," Ernest said, "if this is
not true. You are compelled to form
a new political party because the old
Parties are in the bands of tbe trusts.
'he chief obstacle to your Orange propaganda is the trusts. Behind every
obstacle you encounter, every blow that
smite* you, ev.ry defeat th.t you receive, is th. h.nd of the trust.. Is this
not so!   Tall me."
Mr. Calvin .at in uncomfortable «i-
"Oo ahead," Erneat encouraged.
"It i* true," Mr. Calvin coufened.

In your moments of relaxation, in those few hours when
you are st liberty to ponder and think, have you never wondered why or how it is that the conditions under which yoa
live sre in the main irksome and irritating! Has it not often
weurred to you that, work as you will, you cannot make enough
to live ss you know you should! That your wife » not as well
dressed ss you would have hert That your children are not
getting the education and culture you know is their birthright t
That your home (the place so dear to your heart) is yet Iseking
in many essentials which go to creating that proper environment, without which life ib hardly tolerable! Are there not
msny, many srticle* of comfort and elegance you have often
wished for, snd wished for in vain, knowing that the limitation*
of your income absolutely forbid the purchasing of them! How
msny books, pictures, furnishings and the thousand and one
articles which go to make up "the house beautiful" hsve you
eoveted, knowing them to be beyond your wildest dreams!
Thia is hard, no doubt sbout it, but there are those to whom
the purchase of the next meal or how to collect the price of a
night's lodging are problems aa hard to solve sa the furnishiog
of your home is to you. Open your daily paper, snd you will
find thst the same irritating conditions prevail elsewhere, thst
there is abroad s feeling of unrest and dissatisfaction whieh ia
many places is causing serious riot and disturbance. It is pointed out to you that the bread lines in our great cities continue to
* lengthen, that the ranks of the unemployed sre swollen to sussing proportions; thst the tenement snd slum qusrters ars
overcrowded- to suffocaton, and rotten with filth and disesse.
You read thst the dens of prostitution and vice, the divas snd
gambling hells are multiplying with terrible rapidity; thst the
food stuffs you sre forced to buy sre adulterated with vicious
dopes and unwholesome embalming fluids, snd thst they are
put up under conditions absolutely revolting. You sre given
to understand that public men sre daily prostituting their powers and offices to the services of one or other of the huge corporations whioh control the state. You know thst the government departments and finances are battened upon by s horde
of insatiable and voracious parasites whose sole sim is to get
rich quick, even if they wreck the country in the process. You
are told that the mills and factories are closed down because
there is a glut of coal, iron, of steel, of flour, snd of textile
goods. That the warehouses snd wharves are overflowing with
manufactured wealth which cannot be sold owing to the lack
of foreign markets, yet, in your streets and upon your homesteads men and women starve and die for lack of s little of this
overplus. You hear from every pulpit in Christendom priests
snd ministers expounding* the doctrine of the "Prince of
Peace," yet the nations are engaged in s msd race to outvie
each other in the building of battleships snd tbe equipping of
mighty armies. Your periodicals snd mags-fines sre forever
publishing articles whose authors stand aghast at the amazing
poverty of the workers, or weep with rage st the licentious
revels of the ultra-rich.
These utterly diabolical conditions you know really exist
despite the futile vaporing-, of pre-election orators, snd you
know that they grow steadily worse instead of better. What
hsve you as a citizen done to alter these evil conditions!
You hsve no doubt ever since you could use the franchise
for one or other of the historic parties, Liberal or Conservative,
Republican or Democrat, or it may be you hsve given your vote
to some reform movement, some peoples' party, or farmers'
political league, and still, as I hsve ssid before, economic conditions grow steadily won*. The conclusion is then justifiable
thst the old parties either csnnot or will not move to smeliorste
existing evils.
Since this is so, since you csnnot refute this plain statement, is it not time you looked around for some saner, safor system of society thsn the one we st present suffer under!
If this present horrible hurly-burly, this murderous, rspsetous
exploitation of the worker by the non-worker is the fruit of
generations of Liberal, Conservative or Democratic rule, is it
not time you sought out some method of abolishing it! For
this is sn undeniable fact, that it is the determinntir-n of the
non-worker to exploit the labor of the worker which is responsible for all the misery under which mankind staggers todsy. It
matters not if the parasite be rich or poor, if he does not create
any wealth he must, in order to keep alive, live upon the labor
of a fellow man. The factory lords, the oil barons, snd the
captains of industry sre tbe exploiters par excellence, the
weslth they hsve already filched enabling them to grind the
worker to produce his utmost in their interests. The tramp,
the hobo, the convict, tbe hold-up msn or woman, the sueskthief
must be kept and sre kept out of thc toil of ths working elass.
Politicisns hsve iu the psst snd will ia the future tinker
with reform; we have inebriate homes, reformatories, workhouses, church missions, snd higher in the scale, railway commissions, interstate commerce commissions, government whest
graders, inspectors of this snd inspectors of thst, antitrust
laws, temperance laws, snd so on, but still conditions sre gst-
ting worse, laws sre evsded, inspectors bribed, commissions defied, all in the interest of thst modern juggernaut whose name
is profit. These reform lsws must fsil ia thst they sre unscientific in conception, clumsy in operation snd must be administered by venn) officials. They sre efforts to pstch up the effect
of capitalist exploitation while fsiling altogether to reseb the
The foregoing is s gloomy picture, but worse is to follow if
cspiulism be not arrested in its murderous march. The world
is fsce to face with s terrible crisis, which, if not rightly dealt
with, must inevitably precipitste a dire cslsmity, s calamity
so vast and appalling, so far-reaching in its effect ss to plunge
mankind into barbaric conditions ones mors.
Believe me, this is no exsggerstion, no perverted dresra of
s disordered mind; the times sre full of signs snd portents.
The storm clouds sre banking low snd dark upon the horison,
the sir is chsrged with electric fluid and ths question of the
bonr is, how soon will this terrible cyclone burst upon us! How
soon will mankind, the worker on the on* side snd ths hired
assassin of capitalism on the other, bs locked together in a
desth struggle! Row soon will revolution, bloody and terrible,
bresk in upon us!
There is, however, ons gleam of light in ths stygean dark*
new, one beam of hope to which thinkers sad workers look for
salvation, and that is the sdoption and application of eommoa
sense economies, in a ward, ths system evolved by ths great
Karl Msrx and presshsd throagbout the world by the Inter-
national Socialist psrty. A system of economic* whose sols sim
is tbs totsl elimination of the practices of usury, of rent of In*
terest, and of proflt; whose desire is to give to tbs worker sll
the Weslth he shall produce or the equivalent thereof, snd whose
ultimate sim is the establishment of a eo-operstive commonwealth where every msn shall toil, not that he may in timo be
sble to live upon a fellow man/but that he msy be of the great'
est use to tbe community at lsrge.
Will you not then spend a little of your time in enquiring
into ths way snd means by whieh such a happy condition may
