The International Pirothcrhood of  Blacksmiths' Union, Xo. 151. met iii thu  Trades and Labor hall, Homer street,  the other evening. The blacksmiths of  tho city believe iu union for thu preservation of their rights, and with such an  object in view their meetings are well attended.  Mr. Williamson appeared on behalf of  Tin: iNOKi'iis-DHMT, ami. spoke of its  great benefit to the working classes of  this city. Xo doubt thy union will lie  heard from in a manner worthy the paper's claim.  An "uppeul to organized labor" from  the Weavers' Union, No. 1(_4, Jamestown, N. Y., was read by the. secretary.  It seems that the Hall and Company's  worsted mills of that city is a soulless institution, and deserving of the censure  of every friend of humanity aud justice,  therefore the union donated' the sum of  $5, and pledged itself to use its influence  to stop the Hall and Company's sale of  goods in this city. No doubt other  unions will do likewise. The blacksmiths believe in the principle of exclusive dealing when, necessary, and in  this spirit they expect to help, have  considered the just demands of the.  Textile Workers.  The Blacksmiths' Union is growing  and will always be heard from on behalf  of justice to the employer when its  equivalent is granted to the employee.  Tremendous slaughter  (Groceries   lor one   week,  Grocery.  of   iip-to'-diite  at   the   City  RAILWAY AND TRAFFIC BRIDGE  "ibe Government Should  Build   tho   Line  From  Vancouver to Chllliwaclt.  A iHitition is being circulated by the  Settlers' Association of liritish Columbia asking the Provincial (ioveriiiuent  to construct n railway^'rom  Vancouver  east to Chilliwai'k.   This proposed line  will lie a government-owned affair and  will directly affect the great agricultural  districts   of   Delta,   Surrey,    I.angley,  MatMiui, Sumas and Chilliwack.   lt is  also proposed as soon as possiole to extend the line into the  mining ilislriets  of   Kootenay.   A   railway   and' traffic  bridge will  ho built across the  Fraser  river  at New Westminster.   The petitioners lieliovo that the immediate construction of this public, work is of paramount importance not. only to districts  mentioned nnd the coast cities but also  to the Province at large.   The city council when first spoken to on this matter  promised to endorse tho project, but allowed thu-matter to drop.   The alder-  iiien, however, wo are informed, have  since  signed   the   petition,   but   there  should yet  be alxiut U.OOO more signatures from Vancouver.   The importance  of the work to Vancouver will readily be  seen..  And   whatever  action  is  taken  must bo done quickly, as a deputation  will go to Victoria on tlie 18th  to interview   the Government,   and   urge   the  necessity of this work being undertaken  under   its  auspices.   The Settlers' Association,   a  progressive   body .by the  way, havo taken  up this question  for  various   reasons.   The  settlers   in   the  outlying districts realize  the necessity  for communication with one of the best,  if not the best, markets for agricultural  produce on this continent, namely, Vancouver.   The agricultural lands of the  province nre wild and vacant and   unproductive,   while foreign  and outsidu  produce is imported annually to the extent of ���'",500,000.   This farm product-  can Ix- raised easily in the  valley of the  i'raser.    While the lands of  liritish Co  ..lumbal remain in.the condition cited the  working classes of thu towns and cities  must pay  the duties collected and the  freights charged on the long haul of the  imported   stuff used hy   them.    Il" the  government built the road,, the deputation will point out to it,  through  the  districts named almve the existing order of things  would be changed.   The  vacant laud would soon  become developed and productive, cleared up, settled,  while a very large proportion of the big  amount of money now being sent away  would remain in the province  to assist  in promoting and developing other in-  dnstries, more of which is greatly needed.' The   words "hard   times"   should  not   bu   known  in  this fine   province,  for    ihey     imply     shiftlessnci-s     and  meanness of the. people.    We  have no  excuse for dull  limes, and  the government fhoiild  remember this fad.   .Regarding how the Canadian Pacific' Kail-  way affects the agriculturists of liritish  Columbia it may lie asserted  that that  company owns large tracts of land in  the Northwest  Territories,' and   consequently   is   too    much   interested    in  the development and settlement of those  lands   lo gi\e "settlers rates''  further  west than Calgary.   This is a discrimi  nation   against British   Columbia,  notwithstanding the excellent markets at  the coast cities and  the closu proximity  ofthe lauds to them.   Take for instance  the Fraser   valley from  Hope to Port  Moody or from Mission City to Hunting-  Ion,   whe.re" there are   many thousand  acres  of   most   excellent,   fertile land.  The trains of the C. 1'. It.   pass and repass   each   way   several   times   a   (lay  between these points.   Yet in all  that  distance there is scarcely  any evidence  _<if_ugricultiiral_.developmcnt__rosulting  from the fact that the railway line, has  been iu constant operation for the past  10 to 15 years. That company's interest,  so far as land goes, lies outside of this  province, and consequently get the advantage of the long haul of the products  of its own lands.   Hence  its interests  are diametrically oppose to the developing of the agricultural resources of Uritish Columbia.   The construction of the  line and bridge petitioned for will 'do the  work the C. l\ U. now fails to carry out,  namely, the developing of the agricultural districts.   Then as to the miser  iiblu chartcr-inongering crews who are  making such a noise as to what they  will do since ihe. Settlers' Association  started its petition.   The C.1'. K. does  uot*oppose them particularly, because  it knows very well that if any charters  lire procured from tho government that  the samo aro purohaseable for a few dollars.   Thu'only solution to the problem  as stated iu this article is for the government to take hold'of'it and build the  proposed road. ���,  ���Kobert Macpherson sat for six years  Klectrie ,Sonp, 15 barH'for 26c, at tho as your representative, and fought for  City Grocery.

Robert Macpherson Has Stuck Consistently to the Princi  pies He Advocated, While Mr. Garden Has Not���  Macpherson Not the Tool of Corporations.  las. F. Garden has consented to be the . ture of which was milking contracts en  victim in the forthcoming by-election in  the Conservative interests. This gentleman has been very much ln-fore thu public during thu past year. Tor three  years lie was mayor of Vancouver, chiefly because of his amiability. Last June  he was nominated at the Provincial general (.'lections on the Conservative ticket  and, wii�� returned. Al the Dominion  general elections he again came to the  front, seeking more worlds to conquer.  It is through .Mr.' Garden's too great  ambition that the Province is now put to  tho expense of another election.  Mr. Garden's record in the legislature  for one year is before the people, and 'it  is enough to defeat him.  He consistently voted in favor of the  Chinese and .lapanese, as shown by the  records of the house.  He is not possessed of the qualifications oi a competent legislator, from the  fact that lie does not study social questions, as demonstrated by his public  speeches."  He has no will of his own. He can be.  pulled hither iind thither by his disgruntled Tory friends.  The corporation attorneys find a will-'  ing and eager listener in him.  He was a supporter of the Turner gov.  eminent, and is miw a supporter of the  same outfit.  According to a report nf the Trades  and Labor Council".Messrs. Garden and  Tatlow are opposed to principles directly  iu labor's interests.''  Out of !1S divisions last session there  were only li on which Mr. ('anion and  ISalph Smith were on the same side.  tercel into. outside of British Columbia  not binding in the province.  lie endeavored to reserve to the government the right to give running  powers to other lines over roads subsidized hy the government, hut it was  voted down and some of those voting  against it arc members of the present  governme'nt.  Ho also moved that a clause ho inserted in all subsidized roads that if the  government saw fit at any time to purchase the undertaking that the subsidy  he considered as part payment. And  yet siichii reaaonaolo proposal 'did "not  commend itself to some members who  are to-day members of the present government.  In 18M he introduced a bill amending  the Master and Servants Act providing  for the way in which workmen had some  say as to how doctors' dues kept by companion should be disposed of.  The foregoing are but a few of,the  votes recorded by Mr. Macpherson in  the house and thoy iire a sufficient guarantee as to what we. may expect .when  he is again returned to the house.

In looking through the journals of the  house for that time we,find that when it  wai proposed by the Davie government  to govern cities by commissioners that  he recorded his vote against such a proposal.  We al.-o find that during the first session he was in the house that he introduced a bill lo make the ballot absolutely secret. It passed the second reading  ny the speaker's casting .vote, but was  killed in committee ami it was not until  the session of 1SIIS that a similar bill introduced by .Mr. l-'orstei- Ik-ciuiic law  that we liiul an absolutely secret ballot.  It is needless lo say that the government  of the day was opposed to ii, but it received Milliciont support from the government followers to put it ontlie.-tiitiile  lmok'H and is now the law.  All through the journals it will lie  found that he was continually moving to  have Chinese and Japanese clause-i inserted in private charters. And when it  went to :i vote of the house we Iind that  at least two of our present ministers  voted against siu-li clauses being inserted.  We also find that iu connection with  our city charter that he moved that  those niosl objectionable clauses coin-  polling the city to buy mu oilier companies doing business in Iln- city miller  franchises before the city could 'undertake to perforin sm-h works for Itself,  which is a miv-t outrageous dung to put  upon this city, when one considers it i��  the only city in the province lhat vis so  handicapped.  ,,  Again he voted for n guarantee clause  iu charters that they begin"and finish  their undertakings within a prescrilied  time or forfeit their guarantee, thereby  putting or at least helping to put obstacles in the way of mere charter  mongers.  Ho invariably voted against land grants  to companies as a subsidy and time has  demonstrated that that was a wise course  to pursue. Had all our legislators followed the same course we would not today be lamenting such give uways as the  Crow's Nest coal lands.

To tho Editor of Tiir Isiu_i'esdest:  Sir���There is an  occupation in and  around this city that is fast being taken  from one of the * best-henrted and truest  body of men living in our midst.   I refer  to the white fishermen who fish all the  year   round   aim    through   the  local  dealers supply our domestic needs.   At  cine time these meh'could make a decent  living and managed to make both ends  meet, so to speak, but to-day this is not  the case.   The Japanese are driving the  white fishermen out of their legitimate  occupation by underselling them.   It i.s  surprising that the   merchants ih this  city don't know better than to deal with  Japanese when they consider the aversion the white population have to these  people.    The merchants do not make  money  by  selling   their  produce  and  wares to Japanese and Chinamen, but  to the white people of the city.   Why  then do they buy their fish from the  Japs rather than from the white fishermen?   The fact is the mighty dollar is  at the bottom of it all. : White .���fishe'r-  men cannot sell their fish to-day because  they ask the same price they did six  years ago���2}.$ cents a pound.   The Jap  sells two pails of fish  for  two bits (25  cents), consequently dealers buy from  Japs, and white. fishermen go hungry.  I think the workers of this city should  wake up a bit to their position.   The  Mongolian' is gradually driving the white  worker to the wall, and merchants are  helping to do this.   It appears to me  that  the white  population  of  Uritish  Columbia is a long-suffering people, or  they would have awaken to this state ol"  affairs long ago.   In all seriousness, how  long do they intend to let  this squeeze-  'em-down business go on?   Why not sell  your own product in  your?own stores?  This can be easily done by starting a  co-operative  store.   Open it ourselves,  sell to ourselves and reap the benefit  ourselves.   Union working men of tnis  city could keep one. of the largest establishments  in  Vancouver and sell at a  little above cost.   A  co-operative store  could  keep quite a .number of .white  iuarket, gafdeiier^.and .'white*, 'fishermen*  employed.    It is simply monstrous the  way the merchants are backing up the  Mongolian in his endeavor to drive the  white worker out of this  province and  this city especially.   The white worker  is doing all he can to  keep these Mongols out of competition with them, but  the green grocers, fish dealers, hotel and  restaurant keepers are working hard co  keep hero by dealing with and employing them.   Is it not better to starve the  Mongol!.''out than to  starve our white  worker out of an occupation?   1 see it is  intended to start a fish  market.   The  owners propose to take the fish fishermen cannot sell and cure them for the  market.   Why in the name' of common  sense should not the fishermen reap the  full reward of his labors'.'   Depend upon  it, this curing out is a game of cinch.  They drive the  whites  from  the  legitimate markets by buying from Japs and  ���enve tiicni  with  fish,  either? to throw  overboard or sell for a pittance to he  cured.   That is just what it amounts to.  Then why networking men form a cooperative society,  buy and sell among  themselves, and so reap the profits. This  could easily lie done by selling shares at  ���1 each, giviug every working man a  chance  to   become  a   shareholder.   If  toilers are alive to their own interests  this must be done very shortly.    Fishermen, market gardeners,  farmers, poul  try ranchers and others who have anything to sell may bring it to the store  and get a fair price for their  labors.  This would   bring   some   of   our unscrupulous dealersto-their-senses-and  also   protect  our  own   fellow-workers.  Workingmen,  think this matter over,  and if you are willing to take shares in a  co-oiierativo store, I am willing to help.  Let us hear from you in these columns  and give us your ideas.  J. II.

The working men und  women of Canada shall and will at  short notice, round up Mongolians aud  capitalists so quiukly that they will  never know what happened to them,  and I fear that many of our legislators  will lie lound in tho corrall, ready for  shipment for China where they may  fully enjoy their much favored company. What happened to Mongolians  in Humboldt county, Cal.,' may at any  moment happen to them in 11. 0. if the  interests of white labor are not put on a  fair footing for Canadian citizens. Since  writing the above, the enclosed iietition  has been handed to me by an old-time  Kuglish fisherman who has been driven  off the river by Japanese competition.  As far back as 1890 he predicted this  coining trouble, and was active at the  time with many others, bringing the  [matter before the government of that  year. Little or no notice was taken of  this disgraceful state of affairs���British  fair play to liritish subjects were out of  the question���now and then complained of. The petition in question was addressed to the Hon. C. II. Tupper, then  Minister of Marine and Fisheries; himself a canneryman, and as such, in common with most all the Fraser River cannerymen, are no frionds of white labor.  This also shows the great danger of  sending to parliament men who are engaged in speculative enterprises, domestic or foreign. Self-interest at any time  may induce his public position to promote self-interest���even to ordering out  militia���as against the best interests of  the people he is sworn to faithfully represent. In fact nearly every section of  the petition is worthy of careful study '  and extended notice.  Yes, too, it is very important indeed,  that your readers, as well as the public,  in general, including the oflicers and  men of the local .militia, make themselves familiar with this vital question,  which burdens and drives our brethren  to the point of starvation, before arms is  taken up in the interest of wholesale employers of mongolian labor.  . ,< Anti-Mosc;ouan. ��� '��� ��� .  .;Steveiston;.;I;eb.;15_,'.180l".  i-fyi'i^rtz'&i'&i:*��*��".<  '���;,���'-- '..'^fcP'S  AMONG THE UNIONS.

There were a large number present and all seemed enthusiastic in the  cause for which they were assembled.  Mr. Watson explained the workings of  the other unions and said the first thing  they would have to do would be to elect  oflicers, which resulted as follows:  President���A. Kolesoff.  Secretary���"Wm. George.  Treasurer���Mr. Anderson.  It was then explained that a convention of fishermen would shortly be held  and the Eburne union were invited to  send delegates.

Men should go to the house to support  measures rather than nien, and that is  what Rpbt. JIacpherson is going to do.  As we expected the Province has again  ratted, and is now supporting Mr. Garden in the present contest. At the convention which nominated Mr. Maxwell,  it was unanimously decided that inas-  mnch as the Labor Party had cast in  their strength with that gentleman,  they, in turn, would support our nominee for the provincial house. At that  meeting were present Mr. liostock and  Mr. Nichol, proprietor and editor of the  Province. They both' gave their assent  to this proposition. How far their word  is good may lie seen in last night's issue  of the Province, when it says: ''Mr.  Macpherson has proved himself a poor  friend to the city, which gives him his  bread and butter and which he is again  desirous of representing." A few ads.  did the. trick. But what better could  have been expected? The workingmen  of this city ought to remember the  Steveston strike and the attitude of that  paper, especially when they remember  that they are its chief supporters, and  they won't forget.  The.Hetail Clerks' Union of San Francisco, after a few days' energetic campaign, have won a boycott against two  linns who refused to accede to the early  closing movement.

This is not right,  when we mm get just as good if not better from the island.  It is rumored in certain, quarters that  the city council has made a dead set  against Chief Stewart, and that it is  only a matter of a very short time before he niiiitt go. A well-known local  Colonel will be the* new chief, ami  rigid discipline of a high military standard '.will be the order of the day. It  should be: remembered, however, that  soldier obedience and police drill'are  quite different. The kind of man required to direct the patrolmen, of this  city is one who knows something about  catching thieves who may be armed  '���with either mouth organ's or Colts', kidnappers or any other variety of criminal.  The Labor Party met on Wednesday  night,., with President Hartley in the  chair, and adjourned after routine business had been disposed of. The Party  will debate public questions, when the  public will be invited to attend.  A meeting or the Hotel and Restaurant Employees' Union Was held on  Thursday night. President Over was.in  the chair. After transacting some important business the proceedings terminated. This union is steadily growing in numbers, and promises before  long to have everyone entitled to membership enrolled.    .  A special was received at this'office  last night from Nanaimo stating that  there was a terrible mine explosion at  Union, 70 miles away, and that M) men  were entombed. The steamer Joan has  left for the scene. Supt. Frank Little  of the Dunsmuir mines was very offensive to the reporters, and ordered them  off the boat, saying that he wanted no  rejiorters around their mines. It is  known that there are Chinese in the  mine. Tlie -officials of the company  seemingly want to conceal the facts.  The reporters have left for "llie scene of  the catastoophe by carriage.  An Italian organ grinder trains his  monkey to gather up the nickels iind  pennies.. If the' monkey could not or  would not do this the Italian would not  have him. Did it, ever occur to you that  the same use is made of working people  by the corporations? The wonting  people do the work and gather the nickels that make the idle, useless class  millionaires. Hut the working people  are not monkeys!���Freedom. ,  , The .'opposition, who have endorsed  the labor candidate',' were the only party  at the last session who stood by the  working men. Measure after-'measure  in their interests were voted down by  the,government party, which included  the two Conservative members of this  .,i;ily. They never failed to vote against  .'labor. ' Kobert'Macpherson; a 'mechanic,  .is nominated .to carry the banner of the.  working men in Tuesday's election. He  bus been tried and ,1'omid true to"-tlm  cause.   Then   let.iis  do  our . duty  its  ":working men' and turn out in full  strength -and elect��the man who has  stood by our cause, iind return him by a  large majority, showing our friends the  enemy, that they cannot play fast and  loose with the laboring men of this  province who are working for the best  .interests of the masses here. Don't  forget to vote for Hob.  The battle of next Tuesday is not that  of Mr. .Macpherson personally, but ol" the  laboring clement of this constituency.  Four representatives go from this city  to��� Victoria, and surely the workingmen  are entitled to have one of that number  to look after their affairs. The choice of  a candidate was made last November by  the Labor party, and why should he he  opposed at this late hour. 'The News-  Advertise yesterday morning stated that  ex-Mayor Garden "stands as an independent candidate, free from any en-  faglement with either the government  or opposition." The sincerity of this  statement is doubted by many who are  well informed oil matters political"' in  this city, because his record in the house  shows that he was directly opposed to  Hon. Jos. .Martin and his party. In  political circles it is conceded that. Mr.  Garden is the nominee of the simon-pure  wing . of tne local Liheral-Consen:a.tjye  Hed Cross Ileer: 75cdozen pints; $1.50  dozen quarts, if bottles are returned.  Gold Seal Liquor Co.

The annual general meeting of the  British Columbia Loan and Savings  Company was held at the head office of  the company in Vancouver, on Wednesday and Thursday of this week. The retiring board of directors were unanimously re-elected, together with the addition of two new members on the  board. George Martin, Esq., and Geo.  Ward, Ksq., were elected to fill the new  seats, which increases the Board from  five to seven members. The. retiring  auditors, W. T. Stein, C. A., aud A. A.  lioak, were re-elected. A Board of three  trustees was formed, and the following  gentlemen were elected: Hon. Richard  McBride, ,of New Westminster, Ralph  Smith, M. P., of Nanaimo, and Lawrence Goodacre, Ksq., of Victoria. The  financial reports,which were road by  the Secretary, showed that the Company  has made splendid progress during the  past year.  Three Things of  Importance  Price, Qualify and  Assortment  Enter more largely into the  art of buying than anything  else. If the Price is right,  the Quality good, and the assortment complete, buying is  easy. That's what makes  buying goods easy here. The  past year has been a busy one  for us; this year we want to  excel even our past efforts, to  make this store the headquarters of Dry Goods,, Fashion and Economy We  want to make it so pleasant  and economical for you to  trade with us that you'll not  want to go any place else.  We shall strive to give you  the best we can for your  money and we shall do exactly asi we advertise.

His election is assured if his friends record their  votes for-him on Tuesday next.  party.  If Mr. "Macpherson is unsuccessful on  Tuesday it will not, be his .fault  personally, but of the labor and opposition parties, whose standard-bearer he is.  Mr. Macpherson will at all times be  ready to go thoroughly into questions lie-  fore the house with the members of the  Labor Party, if his views happened to be  different from theirs, -llu-will keep in  touch with the laboring men of this city,  as he belongs to that class himself, representing the carpenters at the Trades  and Labor Council. While attending to  labor legislation, other mutters affecting  the province and city's interests will not  be overlooked. The position which Mr.  Macpherson will hold iu the house is  that of a straight labor member, which  will not debar him from supporting any  measure brought forward in the interests  of lalior by any party. He has always  been identified with labor, and was associated with the late government be-  causa it had been prepared to give more,  We all know Kobert Macpherson.

PJ2BRXJARY, 16, 1901  THE INDEPENDENT.  UNITED MINE WORKERS.  One Thousand Delegates  Assemble  at  Indianapolis���A Woman Speaks.  The Indianapolis .Union���,.',. devotes  much of ite space in- the current issue  to'an extended report of the twelfth  annual convention of the United 'Mine  Workers of America, just concluded in  that city, and verv modes'tl-.- says that  "whilst liberally inclined towards national conventions, it has ever felt itself  unequal to the task of doinsr full Jub-  tlce to the Miners' convention." This  ��� l.i not to be wondered at. The delegates assembled! a thousand' strong and  represented nearly a quarter of a million men, society'* stalwarts and often,  alas, its slaves; 'ihe very backbone of  modern Industry.  The Union say?:   "The history of the  coal miners dntes back to t'he cradle of  civilization,  which rocked- Into existence 'the first enlightened people to recognize that the earth hud' something  besides artificial products.   It was the  miner -who, at he risk of health and  the sacrillce of comforts, Hirst developed the bowels of the earth as a substitute for its forests.   Indeed', we owe to  the coal    miners    more   than to any  other, class of tollers.   The writer -was  a. quarter of a. century ago employed  by one of file anthracite eoal-railway-  ���banklng-canal-iron, and -mining corporations.   This is the  name of the corporations now  on  tax   paying   diiys.  Liook at the. bank directories, railway  directories,  canal directories,  and'one  ���man'sname is found opposite the title  of president In each case���J. IPierpont  Morgan,  the   director-general    of the  gTeaf government, the throne of which-  is drenched with Standard oil.   He 'line  'his finger on  the 'button, and his ear  to the phone and Is ���hltc.hedi up, ready  ���for action on a moment's notice.   It Is  such as he that operate the operators.  ���"'Illie,:lat'tei' are sometimes the sympathizers with'the dusky-fneed, powder-  burnt,  knuckle-skinned,  hump-backed  asthma-afflicted victims of the electric  sparks produced ,:by Morgan's thumb,  which . registered! zero    in   wages  and  Faehrenhelt In dividends. It is to meet  the modern methods of capital that the  [J_iite<l:Mine Workers of America finds  cause for its existence."  -This .grea'f. parliament of men met,  ,   .deliberated   ami  dispersed     with    but  scant notice from  what Is technically  known us "the  press."   'Chicago,   New  York, Sun Francisco, knew it not.; Had  ���oneitithe of the .number oi* "magnates"  oi- common "business men" me: Vo deliberate on any "business propositions"  ���:the. press, with ibated.breat'h andeager  inquiry would .have   liunj," upon   if to  catch   every   work   of wisdom   or unwisdom it could gather or invent. From  such conventions as the miners comes  a ndle clear and strong and' ever grow-  ���������������'��� lng; clearer and 'stronger, full charged  with hope niiil promise to the faithful  toiler, and just as full of meaning to  the exploiting oppressor who can read  il-aright.  ���Mrs. Jones, the.miners' mother, was  prolan:, nnd  made a line speech.   She  '���poirii'eel  to: President Mitchell  at her  left,   and   .-aid   that   at  Hazelton   the  D    money of AVall street was unahle to  ?   biiy him. '.a.lke Martin irons, ihe'could  not  be  purchased.   Then    pointing   to  his right in the direction of Secruiary  Wilson, she said a wealthy operator.en-  tered his house in 1S97 in1 the anthracite  regions and ?endeavored to secure him  for a price, whereupon the poor, hungry.  ' man with a hungry..family, then plodding hills   with his shoes.oiit: at: -both  ends, told the intruder that if he came  xo call upon  hlni,  welcome,  but, if he  came to buy him with money'to betray  his fellow-men, he would be shown the  door ant- asked' .to. retire quick.   Then,  .;   spanning the'.space, between the president and secretary with her outstretched  arms,  she  said:   "These    are   my  boys; I'm proud.of.them; I,wish .there  were more��� like '.them.'' 'She' censured  the convention  for having   passed' a  resolution on Wednesday thanking an  operator for addressing the convention.  "Why'thaii-- a man," she said,  "who  :makes it necessary for you to struggle  __..��or_an_ex-Stence;-you_onlyi-s_iow-your  .   ignorance.   I am ashamed of you.   The  .'.operators .need not: your 'thanks,  but  you do need the money they ihave robbed you of.  iShe made a'strong appeal  .for the organization of   .Virginia and:  .Bald they would air he at the convention a year hence.  She said in one'of  her meetings in the anthracite regions,  while addressing the breaker hoys, she  asked  the question:  ."What has your  father got for all his    sacrifices and  hardships?1.'   One little lioy got up and  jumped on a chajr, exclaiming, 'My pa  h.te got a hump on bis back and miner's asthma."  She denounced' 'the mine  inspectors for their lying statements,  causing serious  and fatal    accidents.  ���Her address was well received throughout ami applauded! at frequent intervals.  There were eighteen colored delegates  at the convention, among whom were  to be found some of the. best.material  ��� In .the'entlre'.delegation. Indeed, some  of .them would be 'fit subjects 'to represent their districts?. In. congress. : The  convention ie liberally Inclined towaxdB  J/he:oppressed among t'he negroes em-\  ployed In the mines and show their race  the mos'_ distinguished' consideration on  the floor of the convention.  ISuoh' gatherings may be ignored by  so-called society a little longer, but the  time comes swiftly when they will be  the real power of tlie state, the true  parliaments of man.  The election of Mr. Macpherson in  Vancouver is practically assured.

Write Worlnten Are Asked to Buy the Work ol  Chinese Sweated Labor.  Some time ago we published a lengtlhy  statement from the'tailors dealing with  Chinese and Japanese cheap tailoring.  Many merchants denied at the time  that they handled at all goods made  by Mongol labor. A representative of  The Independent on Monday last, during 'the noon ihour, hapjiened to be on  Carrall ritreet and inet a Chinaman  with what looked :o be about three  dozen.palr of overalls, and saw him  take than Into Robt. Clark's shore at  the corner of Cordova and Carrall  .-(���.reels. Our man be-came Interested,  and walked aoroae the street to this"  establishment aind saw the Chinaman  deposit his goods on the counter. Mr.  Clark examined' 'them closely and turned them over and seemed 'to be quite  siitlsfled: with the work. When: Johw  came out of the store he was accosted!  by the reporter, who asked if ihe made  nnd sold overalls; The Chinaman replied that he did, and charged $7.C0 per  ilozen pairs. John, said' he ','savvee"  Mr. Clark, who igot "five or six dOzea  pair from him every month."; The  Chinaman made his way towards Chinatown on ODupont street.  'Workingmen should' remember that  ttueyeun buy overalls bearing the union  label In 'this. city. 'We are informed  'tiia.t many merchants .have .their work  done in Chinatown, aind smuggle the  poods 'to andi from the place of maniu-  f-uctiye,: so? as ; to 'keep- this fact con'-  cealed from the public;, We understand  that a vigilance committee will be.  formed -to go thoroughly Into 'this business, when the mames of several prominent houses will be given to the public  as.patrons of Chinese cheap labor.

Similar complaints  to those. madein (British Columbia .are  being constantly heardl from the State  of Washington.    'The ; effort's   of the  Treasury department, however, to show1:  that Japanese are being brought? inte  the  United States.from, the province  under contract .as  laborers have not  been very successful. The immigration  bureau 'has. received, figures ������.' showing  that 'she 'number of Japanese arriving  in British Columbia *��� iri   theT'last/'sBcf  months of  1900  was, 2,121,  as  against  only,1,719  'in  the    corresponding :,six  mphtns.of,1899.

The Krnl. , .  A Wonderful Diet.  " My dear," said Mr. Make, " I ordered to-day  a five-pound package of roasted graiii which is  said to be an excellent substitute for coffee.  We will use it hereafter iustcad of coffee."  "Why, John!" gasped Mrs. Blake.  " And I ordered a hundred-pound can of what  is called 'Nutty-Nut.'   We will u.-e it instead of  butler," continued Mr. itlnke, calmly.  "John!" exclaimed Mrs. Hlakc.  " I also ordered several buahels of raw peanuts.   You will have them boiled forr12 hours,  and wo will use them exclusively  in  place of  meat.   lam informed lhat they areas nutritious aud much more heathful," continued Mr.  ttlako.  "What'.'" cried Mrs. Illake.  *' You will also itnd among the things when  they come various other preparations of grains  aud nuts, the names of which have slipped my  mind, but which we will use iu place of bread  ami cake aud potatoes and pastry and deserts  generally.   Ami I almost forgot to add that In  the future we will not use pepper, salt, spices  and pickles.   I have learned that they are very  unwholesome, indeed," continued Mr. Blake.  "Goodness gracious,John, have you gone  daft on the subject of health food V " demanded  Mrs. It-hike.      '.  " No, my dear, not atall," replied Mr. Blake,  t'but'I think we will find what its devotees call  a rational diet extremely useful iu this emergency." <>.'���-  " What emergency?" asked Mrs Blake.  " Your mother's proposed visit, my dear,"  replied Mr. Blake. "I really am afraid that the  dear old lady may not slay loug enough to  realize all the benefits from it, but even then  we will have the satisfaction of knowing that  we have done our best to teach her how lo live  properly." Then Mr. Blake went into the next  room to wink at himself and chuckle.  It is the presumption that the aim aud end of  education is to fit people for the responsibilities of life. It would be interesting to know,  ib'this connection, how a course in geometry  tita a girlto make bread and pics for her hus-  band?  A man who boards tt one of the leading  boarding houses in Vancouver comes to the  breakfast table every morning, sweeps the  board with his eyes,, then closes them and  mutters: " Hebrews l"-:8." Finally hin landlady decided to borrow a bible and investigate,  nnd the shock nearly prostrated her, as it will  you if you do likewise.  -.1��� -^������^Saloon^vs.J-'hureh.-^^W-������  The people of this age, who have at heart  Lhc reformation of mankind, know that this  desired state is ouiy to be brought about by  means practical. The saloons of Vancouver  have sheltered many a strange and homeless  one this wiutor. These places are warm and  ��11 sorts and conditions of people Hocked thither for protection from the wintry blasts. They  might for the most part, have retired to the  churches, bat they are cold, generally closed,  especially during week dnys, and uninviting.  Religion _.*-. not practical.

Harry .Sibble, Agitator. -    "-',-.  II. Sibble, tlie man who has political and reform ideas of his own, nnd avIio is not one mite  backward in stating his opinions is very busy  in revising the book of Psalms, and bringing  them up as he .says, ������ to thu "days of progress  and enterprise," is an individualwho is looked  upon as an agitator, by some people.: However  lest we, forget, we give one of Mr. Sibble's revised quotations from the 'ii'-rd chapter of the  Psalms':-.  "The politician is my shepherd, I shall want  uo good thing during tiie campaign. He lead-  eth me in the saloon for my votes sake. My  glass of beer runneth over. He prepareth my  ticket in the face of iny better judgement.  And, yea, though J walk .through the mud and  the rain to vote for him, aud shout myself  hoarse, straightway when he is elected he ���  forgeteth mc. Lo, when I meet him in his own ���.  oflice he knoweth me not. Surely the wool has j  been pulled over mine eyes all the days of my |  life." '��� ;..  : A friend of mine iu speaking of Mr. Sibble  said: " Of all classes of people the. agitator, or  men witli the views of Harry Sibble, are the  worst with which any community can be  burdened. Unfortunately there are people  who turn a willing; car to such men as Sibble,  with the result that a mountain" is erected out  of amolehllL"        ���  Now we differ from our friend in regard to  Mr. Sibble, or any other man that claims the  agitator, as he sees tit to mention Mr. Sibble, "is  the worst which any community can be  burdened." While Mr. Sibblo has many ideas  of reform that we do not approve of, he also has  a great many ideas that we do approve of.  The agitator is good in a community when  certain emergencies arise. Agitation is the  lever which moves the world to noble deeds. Jt  is only by agitation that certain great aims are  attained. Agitation stira the sluggish waters  and sets peoplcto^thinking^and-when-people  begin to think, they, usually understand aud  demand their rights. The Jnuei-ksdemt, Geo.  Hartley, editor, is an agitator for the rights of  workingmen and the union label. Kvery good  in the world has been accomplished by agitation, every evil overthrown. An editor who in  afraid to discuss a question pertinent to the  hest interests of the city, who is afraid of losing  a few subscriptions or an "ad" or two, of  cours).* Is not expected to appear In the role of  an agitator. There is something above dollars  and cents in conducting a newspaper that  advocates early and lute for the working elasn  of humanity. Bare to tell the truth, or dare as  Mr. Sibble docs,   whether   right   or   wrong,  ,. The Umbrella. ��� ,  U is almost impossible nowadays to imagine  a person who would object to carrying an umbrella in the rain. When it is raining you are  muchsurpriscd not to see a man or woman in  Vancouver without an umbrella. Yet Montaigne, who lived three centuries ago, declared  that the umbrella was a "gn-.iter burden to a  man's hand than relief to his head." Later  than this, in Addison's time, i.icrc was much  ridicule of a certain man who, leaving a famous  hotel or tavern as called in that day, sent hack  for an umbrella when he found it was raining,  Ifa man appeared in the streets publicly  with an umbrella in the early part of the  eighteenth century, he was sure to be treated  with shouts of derision. 4_ , .  Montaigne's objcetioTf'to the weight ofthe  umbrella was, in his time and for two centurios  afterwards, quite a justifiable one. It was a  small umbrella then which weighed three and a  half pounds. Instead of the thin rain-proof  fabrics which now form the covering of umbrellas, nothing better was known than leather or  oil-cloth. The ribs were of wood, or of whale-  oone, andsuch a thing as a steel rod was, of  course, unknown. The stick was usually of  heavy oak. Many umbrellas had the additional incumberance of feathers over tiie top, on  tlie theory of "shedding water off a duck's  back." But the oil-cloth and leather umbrellas, notwithstanding the feathers, were apt to  leak." y. ;. " ������   '/   .".. :'--.,-',-:"  Properly speaking, there are no such things  as "umbrella factories."   The umbrella maker  puts the parts of the umbrella together.   Only  that.   All the separate portions that form the  whole are inat!cr at differcut shops,   It   was a  great discovery when steel. frame manufacturers found that hollow steel  ribs were just as  good as solid ones.: As the smallest umbrella  has at least seven ribs, this discovery, lessened  the weight of umbrellas very materially.   The  com mon paragon frame has eight ribs.   Some  umbrellas', of thekind that are called "family  umbrellas,", are good to go Ashing with, aud  have as many as sixteen ribs.   It is not quite  [-fifty years since the paragon frame was invented.   Jt was patented by Samuel Fox, in lftW,'  and  has   had  more   to do  with   imparting  strength, lightness,- and elasticity? to the umbrella than anything else.'-.! A'- book  could be  written about the various materials from which  umbrella handles are made.   The partridge,  or loirc, as it is called in France, is one of the  best natural woods.; It comes, from a tree of  Africa, und is hard on the outside and soft on  the inside.  The Arabian vine is a beautiful,  extermely hard,,wood.   Another is the Weich-  sel.   Tlie Malaga is ashinging, straight, smooth :  stick, susceptible of a  high  polish/Ebony, |  pearl, rosewood, silver, Dresden  china, gold  aud pure ivory are some ofthe popular materials for high priced umbrella handles.   A very  popular umbrella is one that by simply touching a spring iu the handle it instantly opens*  Curious umbrellas come to light now and again.  One we have seen lately can be taken apart and  put in' one's pocket. % The stick  is of  wood,  about an inch in diameter.  The cover can be  turned 'Inside out and  folded into a  small  bundle.   By touching* a spring the  ribs come  off, straighten out, und may be placed in  the  hollow of the stick,  which is then a  presentable walking stick.. Another that was  lately  brought to a shop iu Vancouver to be repaired  is still more ingenious.  The ribs arc stowed  away in the centre and the owner has a walk-  ing stick, but in the centre there is also a rapier, which may be drawn out.   Another neat invention  is a hollow stick  which  contains a  camp chair.   Three steel supports are pressed  out of the top of the stick, a triangular piece of  canvass put on, and a seat is ready which it at  least'as comfortable as a bicycle saddle.-""^*  of Japanese laborers on its line as a failure is  denied by Ueorgo K. Midzutani, manager of the  Oriental Trading company's store otKallspcll,  which furnishes a large proportion of the  Japanese labor for that road. On the contrary,  his company is preparing to supply a large  number of men for railroad building in that  section and to erect a hospital for their accommodation in case of sickness.  "My company is getting ready to supply a  large number of men for railroad building in  this section." said Mr. MidzutanL "The most  important and the one requiring the most men  will be on the cut-off to Llbby, which 1 have  reimon to think will be built during the summer. We have along the Kalispcll division  about Tf-U men, and have rearranged this  building so as hi furnish up a hospital of our  own. We will be able to accommodate sixteen j  patients ut .'*r**t, and will have a Japanese doe. J  tor. The men will be assessed .V) cents per  mouth to provide medical attendance and  medicines.  ������ This has beeome necessary for tho reason  that very few Japanese understand Knglish  ami can't tell the nurses. In the regular hospitals about thuir ailments. About March or  April we are going to put up a largj building  near the depot, it will L e used as an oflice aud  warehouse for the Oriental Trading company,  and the top floors will be titled up into a modern hospital, which will accommodotc a large  number of patients. We wilt then have two  doctors and a corps of experienced nurses."  Mr Mid.aituni slated that, his company was  always looking out for the interests of his  countrymen and supplied 'them at cost price  with most of the wearing appure! they needed.  Until the merchuuts complained about it, the  shipments for the company were franked  through by the lailroad company. Xow, however, they pay their transportation charges on  gooiis the same as other juerchunts. These  charges were not.included in the price of the  goods to the men, us they were charged only  for the actual cost of the goods; less the freight  charges.

More of the Little Brown Men Coming lor Work  on the Great Northern.  The llutlc, Mont., Ilevellle didn't pin much  faith in the rtceut report that the Great North-  em liallroad company would dispose of its  Japane. e labor. It knew that the (ircat Northern system was one ofthe cheapest John layouts that ever existed. Its.mititagumcnl, its  equipment and Its service la conceded lo be the  rottencst of any other railway iu the United  States. So, when the re|K>rt was sent broadcast that the company intended to part with its  cheap labor the news was printed iu this paper  without comment, with the idea simply in  mind that there was a whole lot to be doubted  In 'Connection with the story. It now transpires, according lo Ihe Kali-pell Ilee, lhat the  story is a myth.   II say^:  A report that the Ureal Northern liallroad  company intend lo abandon tho employment  I hclieve in arbitration as a menus "of scttiiug  labor disputes after the principals have iniled  to adjust their dillieulties themselves. Indeed,  it is only in that way that any just settlement  may be effeeled. tVhcu a dispute becomes so  intense as to verge on. a slrlke llie principals  tire oi* all persons the least competent to get at  the merits of itand determine which side is  right; il i.s only an impartial third party who  can do that. The public interests require that  all such disputes should be arbitrated, and tlie  side refusing io submit its.case for seltlewent  in tlml way ought to receive the'severest censure that public, opinion can inllict.  ���Many of our slates have enaered JIaws establishing boards of arbitration in the interest  ofthe public, but Ihe results of their works  seem milch below, what was expected from  tlicin. -Tlie failure is generally attributed to  the fact that their power is simply advisory;  offers of meditation byYhem are frequently  rejected.-by one or both of. the parties to a  labor dispute.. To give these boards authority  lo intervene, regardless of what the principal!,  might desire, Willi the same authority to en-,  force decisions which the courts possess,?wouid  seem to bo the only way of making their work  effective. r'As a. theory such a. course would  seem to be free from any serious objection; it  would only be necessary, to liud out the right  of the matter in dispute, which liiiglu be  wholly on one side ; or. partly, on both,, and  decide accordingly: bin if the findings should  not be acquiesced in by tiie party'in fault, then  how would the public regard the. measures  which must necessarily be taken ?to enforce  them?  Assuming the cause of trouble to be the discharge of some workmen by an employer ami  thai'the court, finding tlie reasons given for  dismissal not satisfactory, should order them  restored to their places. Tlie employer has no  choice between taking back men he does not  want in his employ und whom he has already  discharged or incurring the? penalty of contempt of the court,, which could be no other  than fine aud, if persisted lu, imprisonment.  Tlicre are al the present lime many instances  of labor disputes having been satisfactorily  settled by volunteer arbitrators, in whote  hands both sides were! willing lo leave their  cause. The. intelligence, good judgment and  high personal character of these men being regarded as sufficient guarantee that the conclusions reached by them, no matter which side  was favored, would be just aud cqaittiDlc.  "Uod is invisible, and the czar Is far off" is a  proverb among the Kussiati peasantry, eloquently expressive of wrongs inflicted by irresponsible underlings. The pathetic note  running through lt finds an echo in.the heart  ;0f"TnaiT_nuT^liu7riiSir^v6rknien, from whom  Ihe president or other supreme olllcer ot the  corpuruliou lhat employs him is as -'far off" as  is the Itussiau autocrat from the peasant.  To remedy these things I believe that every  corporation shotildhave sitting at its council  board, on perfectly equal terms with the other  directors, a representative man who would par-1  tieularly represent the Interests of labor and  see lo it tlml in shaping its policy due consideration lie liven to them. This rcprescuta-  tlon should be based on stock wlilch the corporation might place within reach, of lhelr  workmen, on terms adjusted to their means  and whlcli they should be encouraged lo buy.  He would then have a means of making his  wants known and adjusting his grievances  without resorting to strikes, aud this, 1 believe,  would be of iullnltoly greater advantage to him  and to the public Uihu the appointment by the  president of a secretary of lalior iu the cabinet  of the chief executive of the nation.
