That is, that in our daily and nightly walks and exercises, whither on

doubtless aware, the procedure in
most, if not all, of the provinces uf
eastern Canada nnd in every part of
the United States is to always keep
to the right. Victoria is visited
yearly by large numbers nf people,
all of whom have been accustomed
to keeping to the right. The number
of visitors is incrensing annually,
nnd is likely to increase in greater
proportions in future. The result is
seen in confusion on our streets. It
is also attended with danger in these

attention is drawn to the fact that
this rate does not apply to any letter
posted at one postoffice and delivered at another postoffice, even
when the two offices are in the same
parish or municipality, and only a
short distance apart. This also ap
plies to bills and monthly accounts,
which are liable to letter rate.
Our .Socialist friends imagine tbey
have discovered a remedy for the social evil, us well as for all other ills.
According to their theories, the only
things required to transform this
world into an earthly paradise are
three square meals per day and a
place to rent at night. That is their
only panacea. They fall into the error that want is the only incentive to
crime and immorality. While it is
true that the criminal classes and courtesans are largely recruited from the
poor and the slums of great cities, yet
is also true that all classes of sociely
furnish their quota of degenerates.
The vast population of lawbreakers
and fallen women come from the
palaces of the millionaire as well as the
hovels of the poor. There are innum
erable causes which contribute to their
downfall. People of the world are
familiar with most of the pitfalis.
The only way to abolish the social
evil, judging by past and present failures of attempts to find a remedy, is to
completely reconstruct human nature
by eliminating all passions therefrom,
and substituting therefor mo.al and
intellectual ideals. The church has
not been able to accomplish this, and
.Socialism would not do it. The person who solves this problem will gain
undying fauie and veneration.
The local optionists have become
quite active within the last few weeks.

[from the hook OF good COUNSELS.]
He whose cowis are kept for counting,
not to barter, not to give,
Breathe he like a blacksmith's bel-
lows,yet in truth he doth not live.
Gifts,   bestowed   with   words of kind-
ness, making giving doubly dear:—
Wisdom, deep, complete, benignant, of
all arrogancy free;
Valor, never yet forgetful  of   sweet
Mercy's pleading prayer;
Wealth, and scorn of wealth to spend
it—oh! but these be virtues rare!
Sentences of studied  wisdom, nought
avail they unapplied;
Though the blind man hold a lantern,
yet his footsteps stray aside.
Wouldst thou know whose happy
dwelling Fortune entereth unknown?
His, who careless of her favor, stand-
eth fearless in his own;
His, who for the vague tomorrow barter not the sure today—■
Master of himself, and sternly steadfast to the rightful way:
Very mindful of past service, valiant,
faithful, true of heart—
Unto such comes Lakshtni smiling—
conies, and will not lightly   part.
Re not haughty, being wealthy; droop
not, having lost thy all;
Fate doth play with   mortal   fortunes
as a girl doth toss her ball.
Worldly friendships, fair but fleeting,
shadows of the clouds at noon,
Women, youth,new corn, and riches—
these be pleasures passing soon.
For thy bread be not o'er thoughtful
—God for all hath taken thought:
When the new babe is born, the sweet
milk to the mother's breast is
He who gave the swan her silver, and
the hawk her plumes of pride,
And hia purples to the peacock—He
will verily provide.
Though for good ends, waste  not   on
wealth a minute;
Mud   may   be  wiped, but wise  men
plunge not in it.
Brunettes, and the Banyan's   shadow,
Well-springs, and a brick built wall,
Are all alike cool in the summer,
And warm in the winter—all.
Ah! the gleaming, glancing arrows of
a lovely woman's eye!
Feathered with her jetty lashes, perilous thoy pass us by:—
Loosed at venture from the black bows
of her arching brow they pnrt,
All too penetrant and deadly Cor an
nndefended heart.
Beautiful   the   Knit  seemeth for tho
sweetness of his song,
i.erutiful the world   esteemeth    pious
souls for patience strong;
Homely features lack not favor   when
true wisdom they reveal,
And a wife is fair and  honored while
her heart is firm and lenl.
Who is just, and strong, and wise?
Who is true to social tics?
He is formed for Emperies,
Friend! gracious   word!—the heart to
tell is ill able
Whence came to mun this jewel  of a
Whoso for greater quits his gain,
Shall have his labor for his pain;
The things unwon unwou remain,
And what was won is lost again.
Looking down on lives below them,
men of little store are great;
Looking up to higher fortunes, hard
to each man seems his fate.

Grand Forks, June 5, 1909.
To thc Editor of The Sun.
This union of the Western Federation of Miners was invited by the
Rev, Dr. Shearer to co-operate with
the local churches in organizing a
branch of tlte Social and Moral Reform Council of Canada. I was requested to forward you the enclosed
copy of letter, sent to local churches,
slating our reasons for declining the
invitation, and to ask you to insert
the same in the columns of your
To   the   Social  and  .Moral Reform
Committee of the Local Churches:
Gentlemen;—This union of the
Western Federation of Miners, while
in sympathy with the aims of the
proposed organization of a branch of
the Social and Moral Reform Council of Canada, and deploring the
evils which afflict society, is absolutely opposed to the manner in
which you plan to remedy these social sores on the body of organized
society. Though we cannot work
with you along the lines suggested
by your committees, we are ready at
all times toco operate with any organization that will adopt practical
and rational methods to that end.
We find the committee appointed
by the churches of this city regard
this question as entirely a spiritual
one, while we hold that it is primarily an economic one, and are
able to prove it. The social evil,
the white slave traffic, and all other
evils, are only effects of some cause,
but instead of trying to discover and
remove the cause, you persist in denouncing and tinkering with the effects. That vice and crime have
their tap-roots in wrong economic
conditions, and are incidental to the
process of wealth concentration, is
proven by the fact that during industrial depressions and hard times
they show an appalling increase.
The methods which you propose
consist chiefly in persecuting and
hounding from town to town these
victims of an unjust social and industrial system. We positively refuse to become a party to such- unchristian treatment of our unfortunate sisters, who are not to blame if
society cannot afford them an oppor
tunity to earn a respectable living;
and in our opinion the Christian
churches are largely responsible for
the deplorable social and industrial
conditions which prevail through
their support of the present competitive system of industry, a system
which is contrary to all the teachings of Christ. Even before the recent panic there were more than
half a million known fallen women
on the North American continent;
and the condition of the labor market at the present time is such that
there are thousands of girls and  wo*

men seeking honest employment
(even at a mere subsistence wage)
without success. How are you going to find honorable occupation for
so many of these fallen women?
And even if you did, you must necessarily displace an equal number of
those at present employed, who
must then seek some other way of
gaining a livelihood. That these
evils show such an alarming increase
in all so-called civilized Christian
countries is a fearful indictment
against the Christian churches, and
is due, in a large measure, to the
fact that they have either ignored or
failed to realize thai all human activities are almost entirely controlled
by economic necessity and conditions.
The Western Federation of Miners
stands for the abolition of the present social order (or disorder), with
its inevitable accompaniments of
poverty and vice; and the inaugara-
tion of a co-operative system of industry in which all men and women
shall   have   an   equal opportunity,
the full enjoyment of the fruitB o
their labor, the fuller development
of all their intellectual and spiritual
faculties, and a rational, human and
happy life.    Yours sincerely,
Walter E. Hadden,
Secretary No. 180, W.F.M.
