One brother served in  the; Manitoba regiment in   the  war, .  winning five decorations and medals  for 'bravery;   another,   resident   of;  England, was major in a brigade on  the western ftont and   recently   fin  ished twenty four years' service with  the   army.   Mrs. Ivens. is ;��������� born   of  Canadian parents.  Winnipeg, June 20.���������''The strike  will be called off tomorrow, if not today." This was the definite declaration last night of a man who has  been closely in touch with the-conference that - took place yesterday  between government and civic officials and the strike committee.  No explanation was volunteered  as to why he had come to this conclusion. From the statement given  out late yesterday afternoon by Alderman Ernest Robinson, secretary  of the trades and labor council, on  behalf of the strike committee collective bargaining, as defined by the  metal trades employers in their declaration on Monday last, was under  consideration by the strike commit-  tae, and it is thought probable in  usually well informed circles that  tbe committee has agreed to accept  this as a basis of settlement of the  metal trades dispute, which was the  ��������� original ca'use ot the general strike  which started on its sixth week yesterday.  The strike was d s :ussed last night  at a caucus of the Liberal   members  of the provincial legislature.although  Premier Norris explained   that   tbe  meeting   had   not  been specifically  'iflllei/NJn regard to the crisis  in   the  industrial and commercial life of the  .capital of the province.    It was one  of the caucuses, he said,   the  party  was in the habit of calling.  Premier  Norris stated that tbe stand the government had taken in regard to  the  strike had   been   endorsed.    Disapproval was expressed-of   the  action  of the strike committee in  calling it  because of economic  force   used   in  this way was a hardship  on thousands of innocent people.   Therefore  such action, it was pointed out, was  unjust and imporoper in every way.  There was no justification   whatever  for it.  THE DANGERS  OF SPECULATION  HAS BEEN GARDENER,  PREACPIER, EDITOR  Rev. William Ivens,, Methodist  minister, who has been blamed for  most of tbe Bolshevik stigma attached to the general strike in Winnipeg, was born at Barfor'd, Warwickshire, England, in 187fc>. Hie  birthplace is seveu miles from  Shakts,.eare's home. At the age of  IS he went to the United States, but  did not remain, and that same year,  18%, found him in Winnipeg. He  worked for market gardeners in the  tumraer and went to Manitoba university and Wesley college for the  next five years in the winter.  Since hie graduation he has had a  number of charges in the Manitoba  conference and during the period of  the war he was pastor of McDougal  church in North Winnipeg, but his  pacifist utterances nearly disrupted  the church. He left the church without a dollar, and since then he   has  With tbe war over, and with easy  financial conditions among farmers  and certain classes of workmen, the  insidious temptation to speculate is  again brought into prominence by  those always ready to supply the  means.  All kinds, r.of .'/.highly speculative  stocks are how being offered for sale,  The prospectuses are composed of  enticing arguments'showing how a  stock at a few ceuts-per share may  return.the investor many, hundred  per cent.  It is only necessary to ask.the  question: If these stocks are so valuable and so promising, who does it  require so much effort to dispose of  them? Further, some of these stock  jobbers are offering to accept���������and  would be very glad to do so���������Vic  tpry bonds, in exchange for their  stock certificates, although Victory  bonds draw but 5^. per cent interest.  These adroit manipulators are wise  enough to know what isreallyagood  investment; they have no-faith in  the stocks they offer for sale.  It is of great.importance in these  days of reconstruction that the peor  pie should practice thrift and not  throw their money away on worth  less enterprises. By thrift is meant,  not hoarding, .but tbe wise investment of surplus capital. There are  plenty of gilt edged stocks and bonds  earning 6 per cent   or   better.    For  .������'  example, cities which have had to  curtail their expenditures during the  war, are now floating loans to catch  up with arrears of necessary public  mprovements. These loans are offered at attractive rates of interest  and the man with money to invest  can, besides profitably placing his  fuuds, thus aid in one necessary  branch of reconstruction work.  Even very small sums today can  be advantageously invested, by buying war savings stamps which give a  return of o per cent per annum for  five years. Left in a savings bank for  the same period at 3 per cent com~  pound interest, 84 will only amount  to $4.63 at the end of the fifth year,  instead of 85 as offered by the plan  of buying government stamps.  TURN TO WOi  Fifty G: P. R. Employees  Who Have Not . Gone  Back are Being Replaced  by Volunteers  IMPROVEMENT IN  THE GOPPER MARKET  A dispatch from New York says  of the copper outlook: ''The copper  shares, which are generally among  the last to respond, were very strong  and active in demand. We are inclined to believe-that before long  announcement will be made with  respect to placing a substantial order  for red metal by one of the large  consumers."  PI  Vancouver, June 19.���������Of the  stiiking employes?, other than longshoremen, of the Canadian Pacific  railway, only fifty men have not returned to work. It is. understood  that volunteers are being put on the  freight sheds aud around the depot  to replace the workers who did not  return to their work. The embargo  on freight shipments is to be removed soon.  The telephone company has  brought its service up iO normal,  with the reinstatement of the long  distance service to New Westminster and other outside points. Of  the 250 permanent employees of the  civic outside staff, 80 returned to  work today. A gang of street sweepers was working today for the first  time since the strike started.  SERIOUS OFFENCE  TO ADVOCATE OVERTHROW GO VERMENT  Calgary,   June"  1G.���������Dominion  authoritief are swiftly gathering evidence   connecting   up   the One Big  Union movement with the _Russian  Soviet propaganda in this   country.  Definite evidence that   the   O.B.U.  is a Soviet movement   is, of course,  prima facie evidence that the    principles   of   the   O.B.U are the overturning of  constituted government  in  Canada   by  force.    Such   proof  would   bring   the O.B.U. promoters  within the scope of the new act   recently passed by parliament provid  iug a penitentiary term  tor   persons  advocating the overthrow   of   constituted   government   in   Canada   by  force. Hence, it would uot   be  sur  prising if widespread arrests   of the  protagonists of a red   revolution   in  Canada do not follow soon.  UN TO DEPORT  STRIKE LEADERS  Special Loard to Try Ten  Men Held at Winnipeg.  Has Full Power Under  Order in Council  History Nothing to Him  In bis newly published "Guild  hall Memories," A. G. Temple re  lates a-good siory concerning the*  Duchess of Cleveland and a certain  South African magnate.  The latter was showing the lady  over his palatial new home in Park  Lane,, and drew her special attention  to its gorgeous marble staircase.  "Ah!" she exclaimed with a sigh.  "How different from my old staircase at Battle Abbey; that, you  know, is all worn away by the  mailed feet of the Crusaders "  This rebuke (says Mr. Temple)  was wholly lost on the individual to  whom it was addressed; he inquired  if she were not going to have it repaired.  The reply of the duchees.who was  extremely proud of her staircase, is  not recorded.  News, of the City  The members of Knox church  enjoyed a pleasant auto drive around  the loop on Friday evening last.  There were eighteen or twenty cars  in tbe procession. A very Appetizing iuncheon was served on the  lawn at A. D. Morrison's fruit ranch  near the greenhouses, which was  greatly appreciated by those who  partook of it. Some of the cars  made two trips around the loop.  A fee of 50 cents was charged for  the trip. The funds realized will be  used for purchasing new hymn  books for the church.  Winnipeg, June IS.���������Deportation -  proceedings will be started tomorrow  agaiust the ten strike leaders arrested early yesterday and ',whisked  off to Stony Mountain penitentiary.  It was announced tonight that their  trial will be by a special board of inquiry, appointed under the immigration act. This board, now on its  way from Ottawa, is expected to  reach Winnipeg tonight.  "Under the amended order in  couucil, the board will have power  to deport the accused men immediately," said A. J. Andrews, crown  prosecutor. -'If they do not come  under this amendment, they can be  dealt with under the criminal code.  The board may not consider tbe  charge" sufficiently serious for immediate deportation, in which case  criminal proceedings will be immediately instituted."  ._ None of those under arrest will be  admitted l) bail, and there will be  no trial in the civil courts,   he said.

Still, cooperation can  be implied when labor and capital work together, and the three-legged comparison is  perhaps better, for without cooperation between two of the legs, it would not be possible  for business'ability-to maintain the structure  bv itself.  After all, cooperation is nothing but depending on the other party to do his part, and  no matter how we may look at it or what  words may be used, to have business proceed  in a manner satisfactory to all, there must be  absolute faith among all and complete reliance  that each will do his part.  r  Integrity Always  The question today, perhaps more than at  any other time, is whethor integrity shall continue to be the paramount factor in business  ' and social life. In olden times, when barter  was the means of exchange, there may have  been much necesity for absolute faith between  parties to a transaction, but the business system today is based upon hono'rable intention.  There^is much talk about capital, but after all  the actual amount of money in existence would  not be enough if it were necessary to actually  use it for business. What the world moves on  is not  the  material me ml, but promise���������one  man's, one firm's, word to another.  "*���������   ��������� ���������   ,   . i  Conditions have developed along this  line,  which has been worked out so that it applies  to all kinds of business, with the result that  industrial possibilities are unlimited, for absolute faith is placed according to ability to perform.  We go to our work every morning, knowing  that our jobs are there. It is not for us to  worry about keeping the plant in shape or the  industry going; we rely on the promise of tho  management, inferred or otherwise, and we  are reasonably sure that we are safe. Further,  the management relies on the word that" has  been given him that he can be assured of what  money or credit is necessary to run his business, and he in turn promises to meet his obligations. The system runs around in a very  small circle, the greater the cooperation, the  greater the success all around.  It can be seen how great the necessity is  that gersonal and business integrity should be  unquestioned. Anything that causes doubt interferes with the system. If the iutegrity of  the management is doubted, the easy working  of the industrial machine is hampered in the  matter of finances; if the workmen do not live  up to a certain standard of performance, it is  impossible to keep the business going properly.  It does not take much to cause dissatisfac-  t:on among a large body of workmen." Today,  we find literature of all kinds, some flagrantly  flouted in one's face and other surreptitiously  circulated, containing statements calculated to  make the who" works discontented. Once he is  discontented the leaven is left to work. Radicals are on the job incessantly. They rant  about the man who may be out of work, they  inveigh about the high cost of living, they  point to industrial conditions in other countries, which find no parallel here. But what  do they do to help the man out of work? Do  they produce more so that the high cost of  living will come down? Do they help to better industrial conditions?  On the other hand, organized labor, the man  who is a real force, stands opposed to the  efforts of radicals and is putting his stamp of  disapproval on the suggestions of agitators.  lie finds his strength isinjusticeand he knows  he will win if his demands are according to  the right. Unreasonable demands get him nowhere, and destructive creeds arc unworthy  of his support.  Business has been likened to a three-legged  the legs of which are labor, capital and business ability, but with industrial  development  There are lots of Doukhobors living in  and  around Nelson, but a person would never suspect this fact from reading the  Daily  News.  No  one has  learned  of their presence there  from that paper.   It-is only when the News  sees ah opportunity  of injuring  some other  district that it howls abovt the sacredness  of  the law7.   Even a colony seventy  miles  from  Grand Forks,  and   within twenty  miles   of  Nelson, has been connected  with this city by  the News.   It  is not  reasonable to suppose  that the Doukhobors obev the law in Nelson  and disregard it everywhere else.   But if this  is the true state of affairs, it must be so because they are not being constantly  irritated  at the former place. If conditions  are otherwise, the News   should clean   its   own household before it endeavors to reform   other sections   of the  province.    The News draws a  substantial patronage from this district, and  the people here are entitled to fair  treatment.  As far as the citizens of this city and valley are  concerned, there is not one but wants to see  the laws enforced against the Doukhobors in  this neighborhood, as well as  elsewhere, but  the majority of them believe that this end can  be attained without sensationalism ancl without  giving  undue  prominence to their presence iu any section of  the province.   A large  percentage of the people in  this  district are  of the opinion that the  Doukhobor  problem  will  eventually  solve itself if they are compelled to live up to to school  law  and  other  laws of the province and Dominion.   The Sun  is inclined to take this view.   We understand  that pressure is being brought to  bear  upon  the provincial government by the federal au-  tnorities to put a stop to  the indecent antics  recently reported from the North Fork colony.  The hope is expressed that this move will lead  to a general housecleaning in all the colonios.  9  Some people may think that the investment  of interest from Victory bonds does not  amount to much. In this they are quite mistaken, for if the $75,000,000 that will be paid  to Victory bond holders during 1919 were reinvested in war savings stamps, those holding  those stamps would, at the end of five years,  draw about $94,000,000. This shows the im-  poriance of making a really good start in saving. Very few persons who bought Victory  bonds denied themselves anything. All that  they did was to cut off a'few unnecessary expenditures while they paid for the bonds. In  doing so they provided themselves with a new  source of income. Early in 1914 some people  thought that the interest on the national debt  was considerable, but it was only equal to two-  thirds of the amount that Victory bond inter-  i  est,   paid   during  the present year, will earn j  within   five  years,   if put  into   war   savings  stamps.  Willing to Oblige  A woman who was troubled with chronic nightmare  and who frequently cried out in her sleep, advertised  foi room and board "with a family who would not object to screaming in the night." Among the answers  she ne'eived was one which asked, "How often would  you require us to scream?" *'*���������  "It's perfectly splendid to  think  you're  one  of  the  heroes who went over there to die  for your country!"  , "He h I did, ma'am!

Misplaced Slang^  A story that has a point worth  thinking abouc was recently printed  in the Louisville Courier-Journal. A  boy had passed a fairly good examination, and his prospective employer  told him to report tho next morning.  '"I gotcha," said the boy.  "But you haven't got the job yet,"  was the swift revly, "and what's  more, you never will:"'  BRITISH COLUMBIA  TELEPHONE COMPANY* Ltd  Sunny Sunbeams  "Is there anything th shoot around  here, boy1?" exclaimed a man with a  gun over his shonlder, as he was walk-*  ing through a village in Kentucky.  % '<Yes, mister," replied the boy;  '���������there's   the   school    teacher   down  was  shuah   dat  I took dem chickens  till my lawyer made his   speech, but  he proved to me that I. couldn't  pos  sibly have done it."  thare     You , might   take a  shot at  him.  Which husband has the greater  grievance, the one who has a wife who  can cook and won't do it, or the one  who has a wife who can't cook and  will do it?  The highest point of meanness was  reached by a young farmer who recently drove his lady love into town  on the day of a big celebration. A  short distance from where they were  sitting in the buggy there was a peanut stand. The young lady exclaimed:  "Haven't those peanuts a delicious  smell'" "Yes, they have," he replied,  "and I will drive you a little closer,  I so that you can get a better smell!"  Who Stole the Glasses  Those who can appreciate the intense respectability of the Athenaeum  club will relish this story from Prank  Boyd's "A Pelican's Tale."  It appears that Bishop Therold was  one day lamenting to a fellow-church-,  man the loss of his gold-rimmed  glasses. They were old friend, and he  felt their going keenly.  ' I can't think how it happened,"  said he.
