C, SATURDAY, AUGUST 18, 1900.  iram INTERVIEWED.  The   Member for Burrard on Labor  Legislation.  (Concluded from lust .week.)  GOVMRNMKNT  AND  THE   WOKK-  ING  CLASSES.  "In reviewing tlie work of the Governuieut your readers will not take It  amiss If 1 eliould give a brief review  or nil or nearly all legislation having  Jn view tlie .betterment of labor conditions.   "We arc all familiar with th*  words monopoly, monopolist and com-  ��� lilne..�� Rightly ojywrongly,  labor men  regard the existence of such things in  a .free, country as detrimental to the  -well-being of the people.   One of the  evils, which springs out of protection  ���is the fostering of these things.   The  :Government    took    the-  side    of   the  people as against monopolies and com-  ������bines,  and   one  ot  their first  legislative acts wns to pass a resolution that  where such  combines  exist;   the  government shall have the power to place  "all articles made by those in the combine on the free list. .'In other words  the Government have taken the power  into their own hands in the Interests  ���of the people of Canada to cftectually  fiestroy all such attempts ^impoverish the people.  "The union label bill was one which  ���received, the hearty support of the  ���Government. Twice that bill*has re-  -celved the almost unanimous support  of the House of Commons, and twice  . it has"_ been rejected by''-the" "Senate.  "This was a bill that wtis earnestly demanded by all the labor interests of  ���the Dominion, and to-day ItWould  lilive been the law of the" land but for  -in over-olllelous���;.; Senate. I heartily  subscribe to these words with regard  ���to this measure:  *��� 'Nothing : has;ever before  so well  fitted the purpose of Its  Intention as  the union label.   It Is a bright jewel,ln  the diadem of honest production; it is  'title  Insignln  of   "white,"   clean,   fair-  ���mad.;  goods:   It; is ; the   invitation   to  Imy und the safeguard against fraudulent traffic;'. It-lias knightly carriage  In Its bearing, and comes with "visor  up:" It carries with It neither threat  Tior reproach,   but   more  of  entreaty  -nnd Invitation; it belongs only to the  :good, nml Its absence from the leglti-  jmate commerce in-Its line Is cause for  'suspicions of fraud and plracyonthe'  ���"high  sea' of bargain and  sale;    It,is  ���the north star guide of safety for the  direction  of the  wandering mechanic  and laboring man, and is beyond  the  reai;.i   of   court   corruption   or   illegal  injunction.   Hold   fast  to  it,   for  it  Is  KOod!   It" is' current  at  par wherever  lionesty   deals.   It   will   bring  always  showed unmistakably whither we were  drifting.    As  usual ithe  Conservative  party did nothing.   To  the  Hon. Mr.  Mulock  belongs  the  honor,  an  honor  which shall be for all  time associated  with hit- name, to give the llrst deadly  blow  to this monstrous   state   of  things.   In 1897 he caused to be adopted what were called the anti-sweating  regulations    In  connection    with   the  manufacture of mall bags, letter-carriers'  uniforms and  militia-uniforms.  As most know, a very large number of  people are employed In the manufacture or these goods.   These regulations  require the  work to be performed  In  approved workshops, subject to inspection, the payment of fair wages before  a contractor'is'.to. be entitled to payment of his account, and sub-letting is  prohibited.  These regulations strike at  the three   chief   causes   which   have  brought the sweating system Into such  disrepute,   foul  dens,  sub-letting and |  starvation wages.    In every way the  condition of the laborer has been improved by these regulations, and I felt  proud of the Minister of Militia when,  on being taken to task by'a. leading  member of the Conservative party for  refusing    to    patronize  a  large  firm  which had been largely supported by  the Conservative Government, he sold  that lie would make no contract with  any firm who would not comply with  these  regulations in every particular.  The health of workmen bill was another  very important measure.   This' refers  chiefly to men employed on the construction  of   railways.      Very  serious  abuses  have prevailed for  years,  yet  nothing was done In the interests of  the men, too often made the victims of  greed   and   grab.    Your  readers   will  remember that the whole business was  brought very forcibly before the people,  and  i.arllamcnt during the" construction of the Crow's Nest Railway.   The  same things had happened before, viz.:  lives lost  through heartless bru tali ty  on the part of contractors,'but it was  left for the Liberal Government to do  something.     The bill ensures   to   the  workman proper protection,!by givinaj  him  proper accommodation, duly . Inspected, and proper medical treatment.  As the Globe puts it:   'Men are taken  away  from   civilization  and  all   the  means of travel are In the hands of  their employers.-They are beyond the  reach of constituted authority, and the  only rule'Is that of force, which can  be applied at any time.   Tlie seductive  promises of employing.agents may be  disregarded,  and the men  had no re-  dress.-Tf they refuse to work they can  be denied food,'"shelter and the means  of returning to inhabited terrltory.'In-  vestlgatlon shows no employer can;be  trusted with absolute power oyer workmen.   It is a matter in whlch'Govern-  lnentnl   interference   is not only Justifiable but necessary, for. even the poor  alternative of   quitting work is   denied  to the laborers,'    By, the   new law, as  NO. 'H.  300 cents on every dollar of Investment.  "Demand  its  presence  on  honest-made [shaped by Mr. Slfton, all this ischang-  Kiiods of any and all classes.   Hold it|ed in. the interests of the workingman  -up. and It will hold you up" in return.  Swear-by It; frame it In memory as  the medallion of your brighter hopes  and purposes. Worship it faithfully.  Tt is a sure winner every time.���Coming Events.' '  "And 1 regret that to-day, owing to  a Tory Senate, skilled labor all over  the Dominion are not reaping the  ���benefit of the union Inbel.  "'The  alien  labor  bill    was  another  measure that was taken up tn earnest  1>y the supporters of the Government.  >"or years   the old  Conservative Gov-  ���ornment voted It down, and would do  -iio'lilng.   I   am   free   to   confess   that  -the form that this legislation took wns  _not exactly that wanted by llie laboring  men  of Canada.   Yet  in  spite of  ���that no one will deny that this bill lias  ���not  done good service.   Not long ago  "by means of It a large body of Aineii-  ���cans  who  hud   been   brought  over  tn  displace' our workmen were sent back  quicker than they came.   When a <llf-  ���ference is on, or when a. strike is on,  this  Is  the   trick, of the; capitalist  to  fill the places ot our men by importing  labor   from   the, American   side.      Bo  long as  this door was open  for them  our men  had  no. chance  lo win '.heir,  battles.      That,   however,   is  rendered  impossible    by    the adoption    of this  suit.  Nearer, home  we  have seen  the  beneficial  effects 'of this  measure.   It  ,^^--wns-by--its-nl.M!mt-tlie"-dilTer.7nce8-]nydec!s^  ���the Kootenny country were settled, nml  II was by it lhat our stevedore trouble  was amicably "arranged, so that when  employers quarrel "'it'1 their workmen  they are practically compelled l.i den!  with their own men, and arrange matters us  best   they  may.   In  harmony  wllh  this. the.Minister of Marine nnd  Fisheries Inserted In. the. fishery re-su-  liijtlonx  a   clause   prohibiting  llie' employment of any hut British subjects.  In the Public Works   department a set  of conditions litis been adopted.In eon-'  nectlon -Villi nil Government contracts,  ��� ��mo of which Is to. prohibit, the Importation.of foreign labor on Government  winks, nml provides Unit the wnrknit.it  .���hall be residents   of   Onnndn   utile*:*  ���workmen  cannot   be' found  In  Cnnii.li  to do such  work, a  very ��� Improbable  roiidlilon  u.��  things  exist  to-ilny.    Sii  .'tlml take It nil In nil every one must  see Hint  the .workmen of Canada  ur.'  pin red In a far .superior position than  over they were before by the action of  ���tin* Government.    What Is known  lis  ���the sweating system Is a curse in till  civilized  countries.      The  tales  which  have been told, and they are true tales.  almost make one's  blood curdle.   We  have, had it In Canada, though not to  the same extent as  In  more densely  ���vmulnted lands.   No one can Justify It.  but on the other hand every lover of  Ills kind, and every lover of his country, must unsparingly condemn it. The  labor men took up this evil, arid by  means of agitation    and ' the    press.  Day labor.���The abolition ot the con  tract system is one of the planks in the  labor platform, at least so far as public  works are concerned. , We have not  got this but we have got the thin end  of the wedge in. Various discussions  have taken ' place ,< In-'parliament, and,  without going into particulars, this has  been demonstrated: That the Conservative i party opposed strenuously  every case of day labor, while the Liberal party went ns strongly for It. Mr.  Tarte has gone heartily Into It, and if  It had not been for the obstructive  methods of the opposition more work  would have been done this way than  has been done. So far as my position  on this question Is concerned I have  advocated Its adoption every time, and  the many lighthouses built in my constituency, thanks to Sir L. ,H. Davies,  the Minister of Marine, have all been  built this way.  '���Another plank in the labor platr  form .-Is., public ownership of railways,  telegraphs, etc. We have, thanks to  the Government, got this, recognized.  When a telegraph line had' to be built  the question came up. who was to build  it? Very strong pressure was put upon  the Government to give It In the usual  way to a company, but Instead the  Government came to what I consider a  wise decision, to build and own it on  behalfof the people of Canada.   That  trolled; running powers tralllc nr  rangements and all other rights as Willi  afford to all railways connecting with  those subsidized reasonable and proper  facilities In exercising such running  powers al ore not, as before,,left to the  authority of the subsidized railways,  but to the Governor-in-Councll. thus  ensuring to the people the best and  cheapest service possible without let  or hindrance. j  "Another Important' feature of the  Government's policy has been the re-1  cognition made of genuine labor men.  For Immigration work, Mr. Alf. ^Jury  was selected: for enforcing the fair  wage" resolutions, Mr.' O'Donoghue was  appointed; and for settling our disputes in British Columbia. Mr. Brent-  nen was chosen���all taken from the  ranks of honest labor. Not only so,  but In tlie different departments, many  equally competent and drawn from  [ the same ranks, have been appointed  to serve the people, and are serving  them with credit to themselves and  profit to the country. '. ��� 'Y;  -   "I have laid before you the work .of  the Government for the last four years  In relation to the working classes.  To  me it is  wonderful  work,  and work  which deserves the kind consideration  of all benefited thereby.     This work  shows that we have got a Government  composed of men who are Indeed genuine reformers.   To Mr.  Fielding and  Mr. Paterson we owe those changes in  the tariff���changes    which    not   only  show, our loyalty to the mother country, but benefit the consumers In this  country;  to Mr.  Fisher we owe vast  changes resulting in great benefits to  our agricultural population; to Sir I,.  H.  Davies  we  owe   many  important  changes of great  value,  not only to  our marine service, but to our fishermen;  to Mr. Slfton' the great Northwest Js indebted for reforms such as  no, previous :Minister,'of the, Interior  ever attempted; to Mr. Mulock we owe  some of the greatest, wisest arid most  advanced legislation ever put through  the  Canadian   .House- of    Commons,  while to the leader���the great leader,  Sir Wilfrid, Laurier���we   owe. ��� as ithe  great Inspiring force, all that his subordinates have done,  for there Is no  man more' In touch  with the aspirations of labor to-day than is the man  whom all who know him are proud to  follow.   These men will most likely be  appealing  to  the working  classes1 of  this  Dominion  for  a continuance, of  their   support.     Will... It   be   given?  There are only two parties���two leaders���two  policies,  pompare  the /past  -���with';.the;.present,, the ;.old -goyeitimsn;  with    ihe    new,; arid >I    doubt" not  that every honest man in the ranks of  labor1 will feel out y>f gratitude compelled to do all'he can to return once  mora  the   party  which   has  done  so  much  for him and'his  in so short  a  time.   We ca.11 advance backwards or  forwards.   By going with the old Tory  crowd  you can go  back���for the instincts of the Tory are the same everywhere; but by going with the Reform  party you must go. forward, for reform  Is the essence of, the Liberal platform.  C. P. \l employes mm  "Pull with a will! pull with a will!  ; Our bont will soon tie in,.-  With every heart nnd every hand,  Our.crew is sure to win.  'Tis pulling altogether', "boys,  And standing side by side.  That brings the boat to harbor, boys,  'Gainst wind and storm and tide.  "Work with a will! work with a will! "  For life is not too long. ���  We've old and young to stand beside,  He valiant then and'strong.  "For working altogether,  boys,  And keeping firm nnd true  Will make tho work seem easy boys.  Whatever you've to do."  The, longshoremen's strike is still on  in Portland.  It  has   been  decided  in  order that  llie different  parties concerned  to issue bulletins so that they may be kept  Informed  of  the  progress   of   affairs  during the present strike.   These bulletins   to  be  composed   by   the  Joint  committee'  of  the  machinists,   boiler-  makers,  allied  mechanics  and   blaek-  [ smiths now  In session  at  Winnipeg,  and,, to be  Issued  as occasion  arises,  to embrace all points of interest to nil  affected.   This number will give you  from the commencement of the strike  and  give  events  up  to  August  11th.  1900.    On 'August 3rd at: 10 o'clock, all  machinists'and  unions    named    from  Fort Wlllian to Calgary, came out at  the cullof their, committees nt AVinnipeg and Calgary to Vancouver.   At  the call of their respective lodges they  answered the call, ull animated by the  desire to maintain their manhooo nnd  preserve the principles of their order.  Plans  were  then   taken  to keep  the  men In touch wllh each other and to  [ furnish such encouragement and help  ns was possible. Selkirk hall was secured.   Speakers came forward to offer their services. A public moss meeting was held in the evening, Agust 6th,  which was a huge success, and which  plainly showed that in their struggle  between the working classes and the  C. P. R. that the public was almost  a unit In favor of the men.   The position of the men was put forward by  several of themselves in a very creditable manner and carried the audience,  which  packed, the  large   hall,    right  along on the points presented.   These  were followed by the public men, ministers and others,  In short and sympathetic speeches amid great enthusiasm  and  a  generous  collection  wns  given.   The next day negotiations were  commenced with the company by the  committee,   a  gentleman  of  the  city  opening the way.   On August 9th, a  sub-committee of the joint committee  waited on Mr. Whyte at his otilce arid  presented to him the following resolutions as a basis for -further: negotiations:     (1)    That air committee men  who so desire will be reinstated;  (2)  That all other employees' working for  the company on July 15th, will be reinstated; (3) That all men hired after  August 3rd to take the places of men  who went out shall be dismissed:  (4)  That when redructlons' are necessary  to..c_urtaiI expenses the men prefer1 a  reduction of working hours to 4S hours  peri week. Instead of laying, the, men  oft;' "(5) That the:'"management ofthe  C, P. K. western and Pacille divisions,  shall meet the schedule committees of  the machinists, boiler-makers and allied  mechanics, and that when these schedules shall have been settled to the satisfaction of all concerned the men-will  return  to"work.    These  were  agreed  to by Mr. Whyte In conjunction with  Mr.   Cross,   who   was  present,; except  clause one, which was left open In case  It should clash  With clause two.   Mr,  Whyte then appointed  Messrs. Cross  and Ord to meet the different committees, and to arrange the schedules with  them.    Accordingly  Mr.'-Cross,  after  nsked, What Is a scab? Mr. Mac Cluln  said that a scab to his trade Is what  n traitor to his country.'Thouith both  may be useful to the capltulktt <If!*i:-r  trouble they are detested In times or  peace .

The Parliamentary Committee reported In favor of Bills No. 40, 42 ami  46, and against Bill No. 45. entitled the  Vancouver City Hospital Act. as the  Committee was opposed to the taking  of the control of public Institutions out  of the hands of the ���people. It was  of opinion that an elective body like  the -Board of School Trustees would  work the Hospital on better lines than  at present. Bill No. 32, Mechanics'  Lien 'Act, was opposed.

The statem-suis  ���attr.but^d   to  him  have  been greatly  fcolored and enlarged upon.

It i*  ���no  new  thing for re_>resentat.lves  ot  'tlie press���they are'paid for it���to deliberately  omit,   add   to,   ini_.repre.-ent  and twist statements  so  as  to  imjily  somethlng entirely different from .what,  ���was   originally    intended.  .The ..Interview .of'Mr. Watson in  the World  if  a cas-e ln point.  As printed, Mr. Watson's  statements  are    nothing  if  not  ���half tiie truth, which Is equivalent1 to  the   untruth.   Everybody   knows   that  ���the militia was culled out during the  ���late  dispute between  the  Fishermen's  ���Union and  tlie Fraser River Canners'  (Association over the price lo In- pi-id  ���for llsh;   It  is  the  opinion  of a.  vast  ���majority that there was never a: any  Unie, Justification for such n proceeding.

Dear Sir,���A: copy of the Toronto  . Globe of June 14 has readied mc.-iftei-  a long'delay. Inasmuch as the whole  of my address, which must have occupied half an hour, is condensed into  twenty-five lines. I can accept no responsibility for the short extract which  you sent me on July 7. ��  Tho intricacies of the question of  Chinese and Japanese immigration are  far too great to be discussed with any  advantage- at a public mealing. At  Toronto I specially disclaimed any in-  tcntion of entering upon such a discussion.  In company with men like General  Gordon and Lord Woiscley T cannot indulge in any popular clap-trap against  the- Chinese, in spite of their glaring  faults, while, with regard to the Japanese, we, as an empire, have admitted their claim m national rights.  Representatives nf these countries  are living in oui- midst, and from a  Christian point of view, It is our b.nin-  d'.n duty to strive to show- to thorn,  ln>tli by precept and example, those  higher iruths of faith and conduct  which have been revealed to us. and  upon which our Empire has been built.  The prohli'in of Asiatic labor, not only  on the American continent. but  throughout llie world. Is only in its infancy. Twelve or fourteen year-* a en.  J remember thai Sleimr Crlspi In the  Italian Parliament alluded to ill" Immigration of n "yellow-skinned nice"  as a question that-would soon have  to be met; and il will assuredly not be  met by nnl��e nnd clamor, but "������>' '���'<'  most e.'ireriil ��-tudy of our ablest states-  men. Honest, sober industrious. Independent working men have more pressing questions u> solve: the power of  the saloons, the tyranny of many ol  ���the labor unions, the futility oi* strikes,  and, on the other hand, the right rel i-  tion between capital and labor by  which some system of on-opornilnn  may be developed In the Interests of  all.' i-ven if it include tin* employment  nf Asiatic labor. 1 am. dear sir. yours  faithfully. W. \V. COLUMBIA-  TO   HIS   LORDSHIP.  Elsewhere  we  prim  a   letter signed  AV.   W.   Columbia.   In    .���oininoii     wllh  others,   we   have   perused   again   nnd  ���airalii Your I.ord.-hip   Bishop renin's,  labored, evasive and shilly-shally  letter to the Secretary of the "p-ad.'s and  Labor  Council.   A   LIVE   bishop   is   a  specialty,  that  is, mi,- who  knows he  has something to say and say'.- il like  n   man. nnd we are afraid -.hat  Your  "Lordship   belongs   to  that   class    who  ���care more for the smile, ihe patronage  of a rich man. than tin1 poor, the sick,  the   sad   of our   laboring   population.  Your Lordship refers to the Intricacies  of tlie Chinese and Japanese Immigration   question   as   being  far   too   great  to  be  discussed   at  n   public   meeting.  Granted.   You are a lender, a very responsible   charge   has   been   laid   upon  you  to care for your brethren  In  this  province.   What have yon done to help  your  sfrutFgiImT'oriilHe"rV    Evcry--nnp-  .ndmlls that the Chines..- and the Japanese are competing adversely  in  tin-  labor    market    with    men   whom  you  are  bound  to look after.   What have  you  done  to ease their load,  to make  life's pathway more pleasant for them,  and  to save  them  from a  fate which  no one can cont-inplate without alarm  .mil horror? Intricacies there are. But  -a surely you see. and you know whither  all   this   immigration   is  lending,  and  y.>t you remain callous and Indifferent.  No honest working man wants you to  Indulge   In any   popular- clap-trap,   to  use   your, own   sweet   words,   but   the  working men of this province do   expect  from you words of soberness and truth,  arid so far,  with all your knowledge,  ���these words  have  not    been    spoken.  True   it   is,   as  Your   Lordship  states,  representatives of  these countries are  with   us,  and,  so  fur as   the  working  classes are concerned, they <v. not object  to  you   striving    to  show   them,  both   by   precept  and    example,  those  higher   truths  of   faith    arid   conduct  which have been revealed to us.   The  Church  has a mission  in  this respect]  which no one will deny.   But surely lt  is your duty to show by  precept and  ���example  those  truths,  without  which  I  no empire can exist, to your own children,   your   own   sheep���truths   which  are indissolubly  bound  up  with   their  material, moral and spiritual interests.  As we understand the teaching of the  best men in  the Church  to-day,  it is  acknowledged that the material is the  basis of the spiritual.   You must save  their bodies as well as their souls. Men  must    have    bread.   -Men    must    live.  There must be .harmony between our  faith anil our practice, and the Church  of God never will command the sympathy of our working classes, so long  as the loaders of il are found on the  side   of every   movement   which   alms  to degrade and to Impoverish men for  whom  Christ    died.      Vour    Lordship  knows that  the dumping Into the labor   market   of   British' Columbia 'of  Chinese and Japanese means ruin and  poverty   to  our   brethren.   You   know  the cost of living here.   Underpaid labor means miserable homes, and squalid  children.   It  means crime, disease  and sin.    it means the raising up of a  race in whose breast there is no hope,  who will become the prey of anarchistic  principles.      You    know  all    this.  What has your faith and practice got  to sny of these things?   God help our  empire If in" the interests of capital we  make serfs and criminals of those who  ought to be lis backbone and its strong  defence.   You   refer  to   Signer   Crlspi.  It is undoubtedly'true that the immigration'of a "yellow skinned race" is  a question  thnt  will have  to be met,  and then you add, "but it will nol be  met by noise and  clamor, but by the  most carerul study of our ablest statesmen."   Granted.    You  say   that   there  is something wrong.   How long is the  wrong  to  last'.1   Km* long,   long years  this   wrong  has  continued,  and  these  able statesmen have been studying, we  suppose.    How   long   is   this  study   to  go on?   Don't you think lhat there is  a good reason r.n- the noise and clamor?   Suppose you were one of those af-  fcciod?   Would you remain dumb?   it  is hard  fm" a. man,  who is clothed In  line lin.-n nnd who fares'sumptuously  every   day,    lo    understand    what    it  means m live on a dollar a day.   Don't  you   think   in  all seriousness  that   mir  able   statesmen   have    been    studying  long enough, and that  it is time lhat  some effective  steps should   be  taken  to  reir.ody   the  wrong?   You  conclude  yoiiv l.-n-r by saying that honest, sober,  industrious,  independent  working  men���what   sweet     taffy���have     more  pressing quest ions  lo solve  than  this.  Your   Lordship   is   in   a   fog.   You   arc  drawing a red herring across the trail.  You   are   evading   the    question.   You  arc putting In il specious idea for tlle  capitalist,   who   is right   in   your estimation.    You believe him ln be honest,  sober,   industrious    and    independent,  while  those who press  tills Mongolian  question ui'.' not.   What are these pres-  sing questions?   The power of the saloon.    Is the saloon peculiarly and exclusively  n   question   for  the  working  man?   Wilh nil respect to Your l.or.".-  slilp there mv more ruined outside of  the  ranks   of  ihe   working  classes   by  the sitlnnii.  limn  inside,  and  the class  you  nr,.  pleading fur  Is  the  backbone  (if   llie  liquor  nalii.'.   The   tyranny of  tin- labor unions.     You arc coming out  in your true light.    Where Is ihe tyranny?   put  your  linger upon  one  labor union iliat  is a tyrant.   You cannot do it.    Is n man a tyrant because  lie slands up boldly  for tlle rights of  himself and Ills brother?   Is it tyranny to overcome l.y every lawful means  tin.   iiiui'liimiiious   of  capitalists,   who  mv ever scheming to rob the working  man of whin Is his due?    It Is too late  In ihe day i" talk such nonsense,   The  fulllity of strikes.    Yes. that is a great  question.    Let   us   u-11   Your   Lordship  thnt   the   working   classes  don't   waul  strlkis.   They   have   appealed    lo   our  legislatures to make strikes impossible,  by  giving   us   compulsory  arbitration.  Win.  oppose   that?

Pray advise them to he honest  with tli.-lr  working men,  lo  treat1  them kindly, to'give them a fair share  of what.th.-y   produce,   to  give  them  better homes, more enjoyments In life,  and we beg to assure   you that strike:,  will cease, the tyrant labor lenders will  puss away,  and   the saloon   will  have-  lost  its power.  Chinese last week. And this is the  government that the people of British  Columbia are expected to support.  There are plenty of statesmen (?) in  the east to look after the interests of  Mongolian cheap labor without anybody in the west, especially a cabinet  minister, coming to the rescue.  The committee are preparing to  make the celebration of Labor Day a  noteworthy event, surpassing all  others.  Just imagine Gardiner Johnson trying tS act like Christ, lt he said ho  tried to act like hell he wouldt come  nenrer the mark, and would occasion  no comment.  Socialism would destroy our Individuality, snys an exchange. It would  destroy the individualism that allows  one class to live .without working and  another to work without living.  The sending of the militia to Steveston has done more to bring that Institution into disrepute among the workingmen of IVrltish Columbia than anything else that could have been done.  Mr. Tatlow's blllis a good one, and  should pass through tlie several stages  by common consent.

Editor Independent: The arrangements for the Labor Day celebration  :or 1900 are being rapidly pushed forward. All sub-committees have been  struck and are working energetically.  "New features will be introduced, both  into the procession and the sports.  Perhaps the most taking: item wlll.be  vl war-dance at Hrockton Point "by the  Port  Siiiiiin.in  Indians.   The collectors  -are working hard and subscriptions  arc coming lu freely. The procession  will be a monster. All the fishermen  from New "Westminster, Eburiie.  Steveston. Cnnoc Pass and Vancouver, im well us all the Indians, will  tulte part In it with their Moats and  ���banners. Merchants, loggers, manufacturers, and all Industries In the city  nnd neighborhood are expected to be  well represented.   The various unions  -are also preparing,, iloats, and large  prizes will he offered for the best exhibits   Kvery   union   should   be   hard  ��� at work mak'ng prepnratlonn. , Our  motto should be, "Better than ever before." To this end It Is necessary that  the efforts ot th". general and sub-oom-  .mlttees should* be actively seconded  by every union man In town. Now  ���what are you doing"? Are you leaving  it for the.other follow?   "Uctter than  -ever before" will, not'be attained In  that   way.      Now,   cigarmakers,   you  ���came pretty near the prize last year.  ���Get there this time. "Will the stonecutters beat the typos? Tailors, what  are  you doing?  The mochinlsts and  -car-repairers should be on hand with,'  ���appropriate designs.   Look out, steve-  ��� dorcs. tlie freight ���handlers will run  you close. I guess the bricklayers have  their portable house almost up to the  ���chimney already, and a- lot of new  unions will be there with new designs.  Why should not the sons of Germany,  the sons of France, the sons of Italy,  vie with each otherfwnf waif wawaya  vie with the nous of the British Em-  *plre In our great demonstration on  tlie llrst -Monday In September? All  -are Invited. Many of these are bona-  ilde Hritlsh subjects, and should Join  with us in friendly rivalry on this occasion. I alii sure it Would be good  to sce float., typical-of these different  countries, und workers should be  brothers the world over.  F. Wft/LIAIMS,  .Sec. Celebrn lion Com.  Vancouver, Aug.  10,  1900. .  ".Ilil.ITIA VKItSl-lS TRADE UNIONS.  Editor Independent: Our local newspapers nnd others are raising a great  howl Iiociiiihi' Mr. J. II. Wntson, a  member of the Trades Council, has  given his opinion of the late militia in-  "vnsloii of Sievestoii and It's effect upon  trade unions In this city and province  generally, (if course, this Is whnt we  may expect from tlle subsidized presrt  ot ihls province. -Their "masters "see  in this nio\eiiietit a'lunger which they  wish-to avoid. They nee In this movement an agitation which : will'be the  men us of doing one of two things���  cither the altering-the liillitla laws so  that union men can belong to one  without disgrace to the other, or else  tlle entire abolition of militia men  from ihe rank'! of union labor, or from  the ranks of tlle inllltlii. Union 'men  cannot afford to sell their fellow-unionists for the sake of playing soldier In  fair weather, and place himself in such  -a position wherein" he inny be called  ���on to shoot him downln rough, und he  used by the capitalists to intimidate  his fellow enifisnien, who nuiy be on  strike, on lite lichnlf, whlle'he stands  with a loaded gun ready to.do business on behalf of tlie people his union  It. having trouble with. The dallies  have given us ihe .best'advertisement  we  could   have,  and   circulated  il   all  ���over the province free of.charge, which  is bound  to bear good  fruit In union  ���ranks u'liorevcr they may be. 1 should  not wonder If that was Just what 01 r.  "Watmu wanted to happen; hut apart  fiom nil th.il. litis Is a subject nil  trade unions have to consider carefully. It is one wlilch alfeeis tlielr vitals'. Can n militia man, who has  taken the oath of his oflice which compels him lo take up arms If necessary  against his fcllow-tiiiUmlst, whether  It Im needed or not, at the Instigation  of three unprincipled", magistrates. 1  .-.ay may such a man, come into a  union or bdnng to a union wherein he  has Got to���or has already done so���  take a binding obligation, swearing  lie will not knowingly wrong a brother  ��� or see him wronged If In his power to  prevent. II. On the other ���hand, for the  sake of the oillcers and the public, can  - a union man or trade unionist be n.  good militia man, who has taken contrary obligation? I hold lhat he can  not. AVliat Im wanted In both positions  aro true men who��can be depended  upon to shoot straight if needs be,  __ and-can-tiike-up-lils_.gun_wlthjiuc!ear-  ���-conscience. On ihe other hand, we  ���want in our unions true men���men  who arc true lo their obligations, men  who will stand by their unions as  ngiiliisl capital at whatever cost. I am  not writing tills In dlsparageinxui of  mllltla men. No <me shouted harder  than union men when wo saw them  going to light our country's cause In  South Africa. Wc felt proud of them:  hut surely union men nuiy be pardoned  for drawing tin- line w-heii that enthusiasm should stop, Were I un of-  unlonlsts, some of those who came back'  c.'Pt a inuii wlio was a trade unionist  Into the service, not because Ik ihw  mil suitable, but simply been use he  could nol serve inn masters, nml trade  unionist, some of tliiwo who caine hack  - from'the Steveston expedition, said If  they had been called on to slmni lhat  they would have nhoi over llie heads  ���of the strikers, but there nic in.'ii who  would have shot straight, and you  would have borne the blame, with the  rest. Therefore, I sny you cannot afford to play fotit and loose with either  positions, either us militiamen or trade  unionists: you must do your duty unflinchingly to be good citizen soldiers,  which does not mean shooting over the  heads of men they are supposed to  kill. Now, as regards the Trades  'Council taking action, we all know  the Trades Council cannot take a union  - by the throat and say you shall pass  AWW^WWW^Wi  For your profit  >**<W-��W***Vi  Don't be misled by alluring ADS., but go to  the old reliable Shoe Store for the Best and Latest styles in Canadian and American Footwear.

They  may admit or refuse to udmlt any one  they feel disposed to, and no one can  stop them. Although the Victoria Colonist suys that would be treason.' It  Is only self-piescrvnllon, and If that  Journal does not know the difference  between self-preservation and treason  It had belter take a holiday. It Is such  unwarranted statements which appear  In the papers to-day that make them  the laughing slock of tlie province.  One says a thing this morning, the rest  say llie sain.' ill night���only more so;  and so on. 1 would advise every union  In the city to pufn n by-law prohibiting militiamen In their midst, and Inform those who are such, thnt ns soon  us their time expires tbut they will be  required to quit the militia. This  would hnve the desired effect. This In  a subject which should be taken up  by the Dominion Trades Congress at  its next meeting In Ottawa, and thoroughly thi'iislie.l out. If this is done  It will bring llie matter before all the  Dominion representatives of that body.  If the'Trader. Council hero sends delegated I hope Unit they will be instructed on those lines.

AVe had n. very Interestlnpr chat with  ex-Aid. Franklin, who has Ju��t returned from lCnglund, about labor nltnlvs.  He says that "to those who have been  ubsent for a few years from the Ol.l  Land It would be a mutter of surprise  to know to what extent organized labor lias progressed. As n rule, working quietly',' steady progress has been  made all along the line, with the exception of agricultural labor, and even  In that direction there are not want-,  lng signs that the fitrni laborer Is fully alive, both lo ihe neeewdty and advantage of organization. Within the  lust four or live yearn, brunches of the  Building Trades unions have been  opened In u considerable number of  small towns In the home counties, and  also, in the smaller towns of the North  and Mldlumtt. districts, and the South  of Knglund has had its quota of  trouble between the'bosses and the local trades union. Bournemouth,  Southampton and Portsmouth Oiave  all been affected, and If the men did  not gel all they wanted the result has'  been that the iiiiloiin have become better organized and .stronger tlian before. In the metropolis the power tlie  unions wield is Immense. The majority of the employees are organized,  and lu the building trades, of which  1 have seen the mcvsil,' the system In  very good Indeed from labor's standpoint. The hod carriers and navvies  have it Show Card day at least once  a month on the work at one of the  meal times. The bricklayers and cur-,  penten. have each a steward on the  outside works, whose duty It Is to see  Hint every fresh hand set on belongs to  the union, or will consent to join one,  and arrange for so \lolng. If the workman In not willing the men Interview  the foreman and generally with the  result that the newcomer has to retire, otherwise the union men would  all leave the work, nnd the work would  be delayed In consequence. Generally  the bosses and 'men keep .loyally to  the working:., agreement existing between them. Some ot the. bossci. at  times exhibit a. desire to endeavor to  destroy unionism, mostly with a. re-  unit disastrous to themselves, but the  majority recognize that by working In  harmony'they hnve the pick of the labor market, an the best men are In  the unions. If you want a.man's character you can get It If he belongs to  a. labor organization, lint If ho does nol  you 'hare, no-means of tracing lilm  should yd"u wnnt to do so. This Is important-when' premises are being decorated nnd done up, while the ' fain-  lllct. nre away at the senslde. I have  known Instances where the property  owners have made It a. condition of the  contract that union men only .should  be employed on their property, ns they  felt more secure in knowing that they  could trace every man, should anything be unsatisfactory, on their return home, or anything be lost during  tlie progress of the work. I think It  cannot be controverted thnt organized  labor hns made quiet but great jno-  gretis both numerically, llnanclallyand  politically, i think Hie majority of the  employers recognize that they can  curry on their business more satisfactory where, they havu a good Intelligent organization to deul with them  than with Irresponsible men, who, In  a good many coses, .aro not much nfie  to '-either employer or the employee,  and perhaps the ilny may not be fo  far distant when they will see that  there Is room for both of them, and a  feeling of respect mutually result  which certainly has not been -apparent In the past."

A'erj" few of the genera, public have  any Idoa of the frequence and serioufi-  'netss of accidents occurring almost  daily in the local shingle mills. Of  tihe latest and mast serious we .Quote  the following cases: Two weeks ago  at Hastings shlng'le mill, Mcrisrs.  Fleming and Green lost a right and  left hand respectively; a few momlw  aijo, at New Westminster, a sawyer  lost hl�� right hand at the wrist; while  working lately tit lihe same place, a  sawyer so badly cut his hand that  lltitle hope Is entertained for the saving of lilt* lingers. These are four very  sin-Ions accidents In the short space  of a ftnv weeks.  ' Now there uiv two great evils In  the _>hlngle-saiwlns l.tisimtic.. One is.  tlle eiiipliiymem around the 'machines  of so many Japs and Chinamen, who  have no Idea of danger, and who cannot spea.1: l'-iigllsli. Thus when they  make, n mlata Ice It U Ini'lKJsslble to tell  them nol to wpeat lt. Second���.The  luck of some law or regiulut.on to enforce oinployers to have competent  men In attendance upon" the saiwyers,  and to hold the employers resitonsilble  for accidents/when the fault l>. entirely their*.  iFlemlng, at Hastings mill, lost his  hand by a Jap striking his arm with  a blook. The- New Westminster man.  who lost Wl.s bund, charges- tlhe accidents to the same cause. At one uf  the ritlier ish'lngle inillls a saiwycr .was  pushed acro��s his s.i'.v by a Jap tli\>p-  phtB a block' ii'poii him.'. It .was a mlr-  "tcle that he wns not out In two. Sawyer E. A. Pel key. caiiie within an ace  of losing his right-arm In exactly the  same way. The mbove Is only a small  account of like dully occurrences, and  it Is to be "ulifct'tvly hoped that some  stops will lie taken by those in the  proper positions to Iu'Iiik about a  ���change of matiters In this direction.  Xotes.   -  The cheapest accident policy held (by  shingle saiwyers costs $22 for the llrst  year; $1S thereafter. The holder draws  il per day while laid tup with accident,  less everything.  Insurance companies claim that  shingle-saiwlng Is as risky as working  In a high explosive factory. Take  ii way the Jap niul lower the risk.
