C, May S���������The provincial labor commission is busy here  today taking evidence, especially regal ding the strike on the Kettle-Valley line, where it is estimated '2;000.  men are out. Yesterday' several contractors wereoxamined, Gilbert Brandt  and Mr. Schacht being- the chief witnesses.- The former have an estimate  of the men out as quoted above. The  commissioners paid a visit to the  Schacht camp. Mr. Schacht said he  considered $2.75 pe-r day of 10 hours  fair pay for''that class of work. He  was personally not willing to give the  additional 25 cents demanded.  , MOVEMENT HISVOLUTIONAItY  John J. O'Connor gave evidence on  behalf of the strikers, he being secre-  re-tary of their local organization. He-  gave the commission tenets and practices of the Industrial Workers of the  World. Pie candidly admitted that  the movement is revolutionary- in .character, being intended to "overturn the  whole existing order of society, and  that $3 per day; if conceded, would  only be the beginning of demands that  'would, be made.  Mr. O'Connor staled that. Since the  strike began he has learned that Geo.  phew, a sub-contractor bi-twe-en Kelowna.arid Carmi, had been paying $3.  O'Connor admitted that no notice hael  been given to employers. He thought  to give such notice woulel be bad policy  as it would enable the employers to  get ready. He explained further that  the strikers entirelv discountenance  violence. The total*'.membership of  the Industrial Workers eif the World  in America he placed at about 75,000.  Commissioner Jardiiie offered the  suggestion that the strikers should lay  their grievances before Premier Mc-  Bride, who would be sure to give them  most careful consideration. This suggestion was rather abruptly declined.  LABOR COMMISSION SITS  Hold Two  Sessions and  Take Evidence  as to Labor Conditions in Hedley  R. J.

He left  Penticton on Monday and before that  only 100 men had been reported out.  Up to that time no'demand,-such "lis  since published, had been made on the  contractors. Mr. Warren added: "The  daily wage is $2.75, with a weekly  board rate of $6 and hospital fees of $1  monthly for medical attendance. So  far as the hospital arrangements are  concerned they could not be improved,  proof being in the fact that although  over 3,000 were employed all winter,  no epidemic of any kind broke out."   mr  NEW IMMIGRANTS  LARGELY BRITISH  Mpther   Country    Contributes   Heavily  During- Past Week���������More Immi  grants En R^rite West  HILLIARD'S  BARBER    3HOF������  I'OK AN EASY SHAVE  HOT & CQLD BATHS  Next door north of Grand Union Hotel  lA/alt^srOIsiyton  Barrister.

Winnipeg, Man., May 7���������The official  returns for the immigrants who detrained in the city pf Winnipeg, arriving from ocean ports for the week  ending May Oth, were given this morning by J. Bruce Walker-, commissioner for immigration.  The preponderance of British overall comers is still maintained. The  numbers and nationalities are as follows; British 2,251, German 204, Italian  8t>7, Russian 425, Galician 357, Scandinavians 253, French 15.  Two immigrant trains with about  2*10 immigrants are scheduled to arrive in the city this evening.  CARP OF THANKS  E. E. Burr  General   Blacksmith  Hedley, B. C.

The undersigned beg to thank the  people of Hedley and vicinity for the  liberal patronage extended them in  the past in their separate stores and  they hope for a continuance eif the  same kind consideration for the consolidation. In soliciting further favor's  from the public they believe they will  be in a position to reciprocate both  past and future favors in giving better  service ami cheaper goods.  J. A. Si-hnbe-rt  F. H. French  Tho B. O. Labor Commission arrived  in Hedley on Wednesday of last week.  Mr. H. G. Pen sons of Golden is chairman of the Commission and the other  members present xvi'is J. A. McKelvie  .editor of the Vernon News, John Jai-  dine,. ex-iiiembi-r for I3squimalt, and  H. A. Stoney, news foreman of the  New Westminster Columbian. The  latter twe> gentlemen are the representatives of organized labor on the  commission. One of the foremost  members of the commission, Mr. A.  M. Harper of Vancouver, was called  away a few days before because of the-  death of a member of liis family.  Before reaching Hedley the Commission held a brief session-in Keremeos after their arrival from Penticton and befoie taking the train for  Hedley. The e>nly witness examined  there, was A. G. Symhies of the- Department of Agriculture who had been  in New Zealand anel who contrasted  labor-conditions and r'ates of wages in  the two countries as well as the cost  of living.. The latter, he said was  about one third less in New Zealand  than in Canada, and the general wage  in proportion.  The first witness to give evidence in  Heelley was Thos. C. Porteous, one of  the engineers in the power , house.  Witness had no cause for complaint  with labor conditions here, Jn his  own case he had hettered himself considerably/by taking the job he was  holding. The'wages, he saiel, was $-1  per day on an 8 hour shift- and before  he came he was getting less money as  engineer on a lumber tug over in the  Kootenay where the hours were' irregular and the shifts 'sometimes 14'arid  16 hours." The plant here was satisfactory, to work with and the engine  room sanitary and  comfortable.'  J. G. Webster, nuicliinist, was the  next witness and he had' no particular-  complaint with labor conditions, but  thought that any law which would  tend to better the conditions of labor  And give the workingmari a higher  rate of wages for ���������"liW labor was'bound  to act feir the .b.eiieHb of the working-  man. The chairman -told him that  the Trades and Labor Council of Vari-  couvei'^ had declared- for a minimum  wage of $4.00 and an 8 hour day and  asked that a law to that effect be passed. Tlie chairman wanted to know  from witness whether' he coincided  with this view apd *.*(vhat he thought  of the propositiein generally. Witness  thought it would bea capital idea and  that such a law was-heeded in the interests of workingrnen. Mr. McKelvie asked whether -witness, in his capacity as farmer, was; prepared to pay  that price and he admitted that he  would be unable to do so.  The  next  witness  was   Thomas  C.  Willey, secretary of the Miner's Union'  who is working in the  machine shop  as blacksmith's helper.    He said that  labor conditions here  were with eight  and nipe hour shifts and the standard  wage,  but he thought" it  should   be  eight hours all round.    The only thing  he would suggest was a weekly payday tyhich  would   make it  better for  men. Rents he thought were too In'Rh;  the arrangements  with  the   hospital  and   doctor   were   satisfactory.     He  thought   that the   legislation   which  would l>e of most benefit to the work;  ingmen would be a change in the matter of compensation to get a law similar to that in the state of Washington  where the employer's instead of paying  to liability companies, paid to the government and the government assumed  the liabilities for injury that are now  assumed  by the liability companies.  G. P. Jones, general superintendent,  said that he ad heen   thirteen years in  the camp and during that time there  had been no serious trouble with the  inen.    The Company paid the Boundary scale of wages in  mostly every  Jine anel in some cases a little more,  where men showed special proficiency  and care in their work.     When asked  as to the desirability of a   change in  the method of securing compensation  for injury lie said that he was not  prepared at present to offer an opinion.  The company were now protecting the  men through tht? liability comjpanies  and he had found  that the liability  Continued on Page Three  SUING JUSTICE CLEMENT  Alleged  That  He  Misrepresented Facts  Regarding Travelling Expenses  BASEBALL  MATCH  Ottawa, May 8.���������An unique suit has-  been entered in the exchequer court,  the defendent in which is Hon.-Judge  W. H. P. Clement of the Supreme  Court of British Columbia. Tlie .action, wliich is being taken by the Dominion Government, is to recover the  sum of $1290,., which Judge Clement  was paid upon alleged misrepresentations as to his travelling expenses.  The "statement, which has been filed  in the Exchequer Court, declares that  from August, 19i)7, to Maich, 1910  Judge Cli'inent represented that he  was residing in Grand Forks, B. C,  when, as a matter* of fact, his real  place of residence was Vancouver. It  is said he charged the travelling expenses on the basis of rcsiile'-nce in  Grand Forks and filed applications  and a certificate to this effect.  Hedley  Puts  One Over on  Princeton in  First Match Game of the Season  DUKE HEADS SCOUTS  Was Chairman of Boy Scouts' Councilin  London  London, May S.���������The Duke of Con-  naiight, who has been appointed by  the King to be president of the Boy  Scout Association, yesterday took the  chair feu- the first time at the general  meeting of the- council. Speaking as  chief scout of Canada; His Royal Highness said:  "1 have been among nearly all the  boys of the Dominion, either serving  or-being served. There are 30,000 boy  scouts in Canada, where, as in England, we have our depr-e-ciators. There  were people there who elid not believe  in it, whe> imagined that there was  militarism behind it. I have done my  utmost to point out that'if .militarism  is tho means of making boys respectful, moral and manly, then there is  milita.rishr.at the buck of it and a very  good thing that is."  The Gazette has, been asked when  the amendment to the Land Act which  gives free land to the bona fide settler-  who pre-empt'under the requirements  of the Act, takes effect, and whether  the new regulation is meant to apply  in the case of those holding pre-emptions who have not yet obtained their  Crown grants. The new regulation  only applies in the rase of those who  pre-empts after the 31 of March, 1913.  All 'arid taken up orr pre-emption  prior to that.is subject to the payment  of $1.00 per acre.  The naval bill passed the committee  stage and no opposition is anticipated  on the third reading.  Teddy Roorevelt is suggested as the  new king eif Albania.

The Princeton team drove down in  the .forenoon and were given some  time- to limber out before the game  came on. Beith teams suffered from  the absence of some of their best  players^ but m all probability the visitors hael the worst of it in this respect  for it is always harder to get off' some  distance to play than it is to muster a  gang-fur a home game.  Hedley  went fii>t  t<>   the   bat anel  garnered   three tallies   in Llie   opening  spasm.     They consistently kept  this  up, or   nearly so. for inning after inning while their opponents wer-e blanked  e-.-ich    inning,   until   some   ragged  work in   the Hedley infield gave- them  their first tally.    Billy Corrigan pitched swell   ball for Heelle-y and   held his  opponents  harmless  with the- cudgel.  Had   he   been given   good  support- he-  eei-ild   have  sliiit'them   out,  for every  run they got was the result of fielding  errors on the part  of his team   mates.  .Twice  did he  get a   bit wild   and that  was in the  fifth and the fateful seventh,   so  fraught   with   evil   import   to  many a   luckless   flingc-r.     During the  wildness  two Princetonians got liases  on balls, but under  Liu-! fairy enchantment of  the'receiving end   eif the battery the e-vil demon was exorcised and  the  pitcher   steadied   down  te>  work  again.     For  the  remaining two innings Reilly Anderson went in to pitch.  He had some-  difficulty in locating the  plate for a while and   was a tiifle over  generous  with  his  passes.- but  the-ie  was no   marked slaughte-r of his offerings arid  the only run scored was on ...  one of the passes he gave.  Hill caught a good game behind the  bat -and his pegging te> second wiis :  ���������elegant.' In fact he scarcely got full  ���������credit, from the umpire for some of  the best pegs.be made anel the umpire's anxiety to give the.'runner the  benefit-of the doubt was responsible  for conjuring up some doubts that  were: in it shared by others who were  in a better condition to see the play..  Princeton's first pitcher* einly lasted   .  three innings,for Hedley swatters voted'his  menu   to he so  delicious  that  they fell on hrm  tooth and  nail and  this only sharpened their appetites for  his successor.     But perhaps  the buck  of a catcher- who coulel hold the balls  was  more at fault than   the pitchers,  for no  pitcher can elo  himself justice  if he has  no confidence in   the ball being  held.     Neither is it at all likely  that the  team which  played  here are  anything  like   as   good   a    team    as  Princeton  can  put in  the field 'for a  home game.   The score in this game  gave  Hedley the  big end  of it e>ri a  ratio of 8 to 1.    What the real multiples eif those  numbers  were  it is not  necessary to   state.      The   Princeton  players  were all a good lot and were  good losers.     There was  no disputing  of decisions   on   either side  and  the  game   was   agreeable   from   start  to  finish.     R. Wheeler officiated as um-  piieand, his decisions  were as  nearly  correct in   every instance as  he kne-w  how.    The line-up was as follows:  Hedlev  positie  >n  Princeton  R. Anderson  2b  D.

Jardine. and  R. A. Stoney.  The   latter  is provincial organize-r foi  the  typographical  union, and  he was  particularly  careful to  obtain the admission   from  general .superintendent  (j.   P.'Jones   th.it  he  dealt  with the  men collectively through the union instead- of  individually,   and   that  this  was  in  a  great  measure  the. reason  why the  relations  between   the  employers  and employees in  Camp Heel  le-y had been so friendly.     Mr. Stoney  claims that in many cases where labor  troubles had existed they were caused  by   tactless  managers   insisting   upon  dealing individually with the men instead of dealing with the union.  .  It is safe to say that the socialists in  Vancouver  who have  asked feir a law  .making $4.00 the minimum daily, wage,  for an  eight   hour   day   have' given  practically    no  consideration   to   the  matter-,  and   it  is  even  questionable  whether they  believe themselves that  the thing  is  practicable.    One  thing  they are satisfied of mid that is that it  will make a popular catch-peilny cry  with a large number of wage earners  who  will   be   sure   to   interpret   the  thing as a good'move for  them.    The  stock-in-trade of the men who ply the  craft of labor agitator and live  easy  lazy lives at the  expense of those who  work, is their ability to originate popular cries which   will tickle  the ears of  the    unthinking.       If   an    arbitrary  wagei scale  is   fixed   in   that sort  of  stand-and-deliver fashion without any  regard to the. profit earning character  of the  sei vice performed for the wage  which is  paid, it will be  necessary for  others   to  increase   their   charges   to  meet it and  in   the end  no one will  be a bit  better oil' when   the situation  has re-adjusted itself.     A law making  it compulsory for  every man who employs   unskilled  labor  to pay  a minimum daily  wage of $4.00 for an eight  hour day would  cause such  an influx  from the employing class to the wage-  earning that the  ranks of the unemployed  would  be unduly augmented,  and instead  of the wage-earner being  benefited  he would  find.himself looking for another- job because the one he  had   been  holding  was  taken   up   by  some former employer of labor who  had  been forced   to close   down   his  business and  become a wage  earner  again.   The whole proposition seems  so palpably and obviously absurd that  11 is>il\vays  a  bad  'thing' to''underrate   mill's--.opponent,   and , holy   wiit  teaches  that   it   is* equally  cry "peace,   peace-,   when   there   is   no  peace-."    The truth   of   both   these'    is  eliiubtless   now being   re-alizeeV  by. the  president-of the 'Kettle!  Valley Railway   in   the   tie-up,   of   construction  work  on   his  line    by  the-   I.��������� W. W.  L-ist year "enormous  sums   were   lost  by   the  railway  companies    and   the  W'lrkinguien, '.tliiough   the   1. W.

As long ago as last fall   it  was  given'.out   that,  the  1.

The  latest report is to the-effect that nearly 2000 men   .-ire oui-oirstiike   bu Kettle Valley  constiuctinii, witlr-'the  ostensible object or excuse:   that  a,   raise  of 25 cents per day  is what they want  although they made no eleiiianil  for it  until   they .walked ..out.      The strike  leader,  an  I. W.

In^ fact, it was^ not. a principle���������but rather a lack of  principle���������yet it held sway everywhere until a decade  or two ago.  When a merchant quoted a price, he made it high  enough to stand almost unlimited whittling, and yet be  profitable���������to him. When he spoke of quality, his fingers  were crossed, and you were not expected to believe him  ���������unless you wanted to very badly.  m  Buying was a haggle���������unless you  were a hardened haggler'you came out  second best in every deal. "Caveat  Emptor"���������it was up to you. There  was no. confidence between buyer and  seller. ;  Business���������once an aggregation of  deals���������has become the Hying embodiment of ideals.' '.'*-'..  Advertising has helped, because  Advertising creates confidence in the  buyer and proves the seller's confidence  in his wares. Confidence has eliminated the haggle.  You see business confidence is a  good deal like capital, in that it accumulates like savings. The grocery-  consumer's confidence in a town will  be on deposit chiefly with a few capable  square, grocers; and dry-goods confidence, jewelry confidence, and so forth,  are massed in the same way.  The retail merchant doesn't lock  this confidence 'in his safe. He de- '  posits it in turn with the wholesaler,  who passes it on to the manufacturer.  And the. manufacturer, to make the  circle complete, must give confidence  to the consumer.  The manufacturer with goods to  sell must draw upon all these reserves  of confidence. He must demonstrate  his own fairness in dealing, his integrity in maintaining quality, his-  willingness to put principle before  profit.  Advertising is the means through which the manufacturer makes this demonstration to you.  Advertising has given personality to commodities, so  that you now recognize your "friends" among soap, tea,  or collars, as readily as you recognize your human acquaintances.  Advertising fathered the "money back" principle, and  has made buying a pleasure instead of a duel of wits.  Advertising has spread the one-price policy���������erased  "Caveat Emptor'' from the language of business, and  made buying safe to entrust to a child.  Advice regarding your advertising -problems is available through  any recognised Canadian advertising agency, or through the  Secretary of the Canadian Press Association, Room 503  Lumsden Bldg., Toronto. Enquiry involves no obligation on  your part���������write if interested.  IDOlMlBilEBt^li'M THE HEDLEY GAZETTE MAY 15. 1913.,.  Town and District.  ���������*���������  J':  I"?

When ask  eel as to his views on the. desirability  of instituting legislation tej establish a  minimum daily wage of $-1.00 for an  eight hour-day for any kind of labor  whether of the most unskilled eir not,  he thought it would be unwise and  would mean that many,concerns that  ..were now running woulel have to shut  down.  At this point an adjournment was  held,to permit a visitor" inspection to  the mine and all the members of the  Commission were taken up the tram  and went through the bunk houses  and as much of the mine workings as  their time .would permit.  In the evening another short session  was  held  when   the  only witness examined .was A. Megraw of the -Hedley  Gazette.   In answer to the epiestion as  to.ore.ler in the camp,   witness testified  that it was  exceptionally  good for a  mining camp.     The absence of strikes'  or othe-r serious labor   troubles   was  mentioned   by witness as an evidence  that labor conditions here were on the  whole satisfactory alike  to employers  anel-wage earners.     When asked us tei  any suggestions  in the way of legislation to benefit wage-earners-, lie stated  that the worst hardship to-labor which  hael occurred here  was in   connection'  with irresponsible parties undertaking  to carry out  weirk  with   insufficient  means  anel employing  men that they  were unable to pay.      Witness had no  fault to find  with   the present Lien  Act so far as  it was meant to protect  wor-kirrgm'en from being victimized by  ���������ii-responsihle .employers,   although Ire  did  think that it should   be amended  in.the interests of ibirsmes's.rnen  who  were discriminated against in the collection of debts for material supplied.  The AV.orkingmarr .was no.w given sixty  days  in-.which  to.fyle  his claim after  he quit work while  the business irian  was only .given ;ten  days after the last  item   of   material   furnished,*  during  .jyhicjbjbrief. periiiel he was, required to.  giye  notice <of his  intention to fyle a  lien.     But so far'as  the wage-earner  was concerned, witness did not think  that any amendment Jtq the Lien Act  could give the -protection desired, find  the only -plan *rri sight  would'bej-somt*  sort of supervision on the. part of the  government which would reguire rrren  who  undertook   the   development of  mining .properties to 'have 'the money  irr the  bank subject  tothe inspection  of the government agent or someone  eilse appointed for thatipui'pose, before  they were allowed  to incur .debts for  .wages.     Tothe question  of the $4.00  minimum daily wage for an eight hour  day,    for    unskilled   labor,    witness  thought it altogether Utopian, and if  a law to compel it were hastily enacted it would spell ruin in  many directions.
