POLITICS IX TIIE  Before dealing with the subject at  tills ' article it will bo bettor to Introduce to my readers the man who  has given us 'Ills views on what politics will be this century, and, aa It Is  his views more particularly that I  ���want to give this week, I cannot bring  ���my readers easier or better In touch  with Mr. Sydney Webb than by1" reproducing a short sketch of Wm as It  appeared in the Toronto Globe the  other day:  Mr. Sidney Webb,  Lh.  B.. |  Is a member of London County Council  and chairman of the Technical Education Board.   Ait one time Mr. Webb was  lecturer  on   political  economy at  the  City of London College amd Working-  men's  College, ��� and   now  holds   that  post at t'he London School of Economics  amd  Political  Science.   He Is also  a barrister of Gray's Inn.   Still comparatively a young man, born in 1853,  Mr. Webb received 'his early training  ln private schools in London,  ln the  Birkbeok  Institute  aind    the   City  of  London College, beside spending some  time In  schools   In   Switzerland   and  Mecklenburg-Sehwerin.   In open .competition he secured a post ln ithe War  Office  ln  187S,   became  a surveyor of  taxes ln 1879-81 In the same w'ay, and  still again obtained a post in <the Colonial  Office,   which  he 'held  lor   ten  yea,rs, resigning in 1831 to enter the  X��ondon  County  Council   and    'devote  bis time to authorship.   Hits time has  evidently    been    fully occupied,    for  he has  written   "Socialism   in    England";   "The   Eight   Hours'   Day," in  conjunction   ivith   Mr.     Harold  ,Cox;  "The  London   Programme";   "History  of Trades Unionism,"  in conjunction  with his wife, who herself had writ-  ���ten  the   "Co-operaltlive  Movlem'enlt  in  Great   Britain";   "Industrial     Democ-  , raicy"' (two volumes);  "Labor in the  Longest Reign;" "Problems of Modern  ..Industry;",besides contributing to Mr.  Charles , Booth's   "Life "and  Lalbor of  'the People." , ,  This is thle man of many activities  *h&.t has seriously given his opinion as  to what will 'be 'the dominant issues In  ' politics this century, ana as they are  both radical and interesting I have  much .pleasure in elaborating them to  the readers of The Independent who  desire ito be "kept ln touch with the  ,     living thought of living men.  Home  Politics.  _  It will be as well for my readers  to remember thait .Mr. Webb Is dealing with .political life in .the Old Country. In that country, of which we  form no mean pant, .there are two "policies���a home and a foreign policy. In  the' old days statesmen made more  of the foreign than they did of the  home policy���the change coming will  he significant In ithls respect that the  home policy ���will be the policy which  ���will absorb the attention of our .poli-  ���ticlans. So he says: "The Heading  feature of -the home politics of the  nineteenth century, particularly between 1820 and 1873, was Khe liberation of the indilvild'uajl from artificial  restraints, whether feudal or fiscal,  legal or religious, social or intellectual.  That process of liberation is not yet  complete, and many old-faishloned politicians  still  fondly  imagine lit to .be  the .riomlmu.t  issue of  to-day. But  somehow or another, during the jfcwt  twenty  years or  so,  all  life  has  departed out of thnt iphu.oe of political  thought.   For good or for evil,  It has  become a past Issue.   We inre now in  a dull period of Intellectual transition,  will eh has already lasted some years,  and  ls( likely still to continue.   Pi-o-i-  ontly we shall  11ml .ourselves ]>,u��..lnir  Imperceptibly Into a new era.   Statesmen on both sides will be heard  talking  In   new  language a.bout  fresh   l.s-  kucs.   ri.il>.ilily   before   the   MrsL   .lc-  cado   of   the   century   has   p:u<sed   the  Ideas   and   tnntii>vi>s-.<li><i   of  1SI!0,   1S70  and ISM) will win n.s remote anil oli-  colote  us   do   thij.-i'  of   1700,   1770  anil  17S0."   Whn.t   will    llie.'c   fiw.h   Jyisuca  lh1?   W'lnt   pliimju     will   we     make?  Whither will the spirit of the age lead  us?   The��e   are  deep   vital   questions.  Mr.  Webb  thinks,   nnd   thinks   truly,  that  the  chief aim   will  lie   the  compulsory  maintenance  of .the  standard  of  life.   He holds  that  it is  (he first  object and purpose of .the state that  Its  people should live and  live well.  Not   only so,   but   twentieth, century  politics will bo made up, for the most  lng ihe standard of life,  he works out his views:  This Is how  Had leal Changes ln Ideas.  "My own  impression is that twen  tleih'contury politics, so far as con  corns home affairs, will he dominated  by the Idea of the compulsory main-  ten anco of the standard of life.   The  first object and purpose of the State  Is that Its people should live, and live  well.   We   shall   tafce   It  i-Jmply   Ifor  granted that the whole force and influence  of   the  community,   organised  ln its ioual and national government,  must be .used in defence of every Individual  member of it.   The  most lm-  I portant  national  campaigns,  and   the  most  glorious,   will  be  those against  disease  and   demoralisation  aind  premature death.   A rise in ithe rate ot  ilckness or mortality will lead to the  dismissal! of  the    ministry.      Such  o  glaring failure  in social organisation  as an  Indian  famine  would  be  followed  .by  an  impeachment.   But   the  mere    preservation    of    life    is   not  enough.   Twenty century  ipolitlcs will  be  made .up,_ for the  most pant,   of  plans   and   proposals   for  raising   the  standard of life, especially as regairds  all   those   sections  of   the  community  which fall below the common average  This principal duty of the government  will,   in   fact,   be  deliberately,   consciously,    purposely    and  persistently  to   raise   thi   sstan'daird   at  one   point  after   another.      The    ministry    will  bring forward proposals for its elevation  here  and there.   The opposition  will criticise these proposals,   alleging  that they will not he sufficiently effective,   or   that  the. standard should  llrst be   raised at   some other point.  No one   will  be   so old-fashioned   as  even to hint that it Is not the business  of  the  government to Interfere  with  the  matter  at  all.   What  else   does  it   exist  for?"   These   Ideas  one   can  hardly  help  noticing    clash  with  the  views   entertained    by    the    leading  statesmen    in   'the   old country.     No  -t'Ste  interference was their   shibbo  leth.   Let  tbe  Individual    alone.   Let  him do what seems right .and goodiln  his own eyes.   Give him liberty, "and  let him be free.   One 'bishop declared  In the house of lords some years ago  that   they   would  i-ather have  drunk  free men  than sober slaves; ithat is,  he   would   rather ' see    England    go  drunk with  liberty than made sober  thiough acts of parliament.   All .these  .things   sound   nice,   but. the  proof  of  the   pudding  is  the   pneelng  o'.t.   We  have come to see .through the hollow-  ness and heartlessness of all such high  sounding  phrases,   and   .the  startling  foots of our national life   haive compelled us over and over again .to push  them roughly aside in spite of theory  or party creeds.   Very suggestive are  Mr. Webb's words.   No one will be so  old-fashioned as even to hint that It  ���s not the 'business of the government  to   Interfere  .With  ithe  matter at  all.  What  else   does    _t  exist    for?  Mr.  Wehb declares for what he calls a  NO.* 11.  elected members by others apiK>lnt-_d  by the local government hoard, with  the levy of a special rate. Within a  generation of the adoption of suoh n  line of policy the average death rate  will be brought down by at least S  per thousand, and the slokness experience by ii third. The equivalent  money gain to the community would  be many million sterling. The Ancient  Order of Foresters alone would save  a quarter of a'million annually."  Our friend preaches a much needed  gospel-^the  gospel  of' sanitation.,   the  TIUDESilHDUBOKGOIllVOJL  I'rcMdent Joseph Dixon occupied the  chair at last night',, meeting of the  Vancouver Trades and Labor council  oi er a good attendance. Secretary  Crowj was also in his place.  Uco. Xooiian, of tho Mainland Stoam-  .-lii|>nien's union, und K. Morris, of the  Uigarmakori.1 union, wero admitted us  delegates to tlio council.  Tlie Cigarmakers contributed $5, the  ���Street Kailwaymen $10, of the ?151 collected for the locked-out miners at Alex-  Grand Trunk railway? An American!  "What architects get the work for  our lnige.it and "llnest buildings?  Americans!  "Who ���are quickest to appreciate and  emj.loy our smartest young men?  Americans!"  gospel  of   henlth.   Except  in  one  or  two  centres In Canada we have not lander.   Other unions will rep'ort later.  the same burden laid upon us as In         Merrle   England   or   Bonnie   Sootland.  This  Is  not a new gospel, hut it re  quires to be preached ag-adn and again.  The only surprise we feel is that disease and dirt should 'haive reigned so  ���long   without   let   or  hindrance,   bu,t  that was due largely to the .prevailing  idea  that a  man  could  do  what  he  liked   with   their own,   and men for  money stuffed human beings into pens  and  ���piggeries   that  rich   men  would  no   Shave   put   their  dogs  Into.   With  proper drainage, pure water, and comfortable dwellings much can be done  towards not only maintaining, but elevating tlie standard of life.   The duty  ���the  responsibility  which    the    new  century will lay upon all men of light  and leading in every community will  be to compel through state powers or  authorities that such will be the possession of the poorest in every place.  Air. Webb's second idea is  Education.  TIIE POWER OF US.  O.VTAUIO SWEATSHOPS.  The terrible effects of the sweat-shop  system were brought out at the police  court at Toronto recently during the  hearing of a case of theft brought by  Mrs. Laura Simpson ugainht S. B.

The nation will .find it preposterous that any locality, merely out  of stupidity, or incapacity, or parsimony, Should foster disease, or bring  up Its quota of citizens ln a condition  of impaired vitality. The local government board will ibe always harrying the backward dlstriats, compelling  .them  to   Improve  then-  drainage,   lay  on pure water, and .build such a supply ot healthy houses thait no family  in tha land hns less than 'three icorns  and a scullery.'     These improvements  would   be  stimulated  by  large  grants  In aid. made conditionally on the work  done.   Moreover,   the  utmost  possible  competition will be set on foot .anion..

Re-  There will be a national minimum of  education. Every district will be required to have an adequate provision,  not only of elementary schools far superior to anything dreamt of ait present, but also of trade schools, 'science  schools and 'university colleges. Every  district will have to maintain an adequate "scholarship ladder," securing  aijJiLtenance as well as* free tuition  ior every scholar proving himself or  herself fitted for amy 'kind of education above the primary school,, so as  to ensure, not only "the"'promotion'of  Infant .prodigies, but .she provision for  every oh'ild, without exception, of all  the education it may be oaipaible of  utilising. Tlie district standing at the  head of the year's list for the excellence and efficiency of its educational  organisation will be visited in state  by the king, who will confer upon'It  a laurel crown, whilst the nearest university will give Its principal .educational officer an honorary degree. On  the other hand, any district' lagging  behind the lavlerage .will run the risk  not only of being held up ito public opprobrium, but also of losing the whole  or part of its educational grant in aid,  of being compelled to 'replace this loss  by an extra, rate, and, in the last resource, of haivdng Its elected authorities dismissed and replaced by government nominees, with unlimited power  to bring the educational machinery of  tho locality up to the mark of Its own  expanse. What right has any part or  the kingdom to rear its quota of citizens in ignorance, or to suffer even  community?  In   educational    matters    the   poor  have      never      had     a     chance���not  even   yet   with   all our boasted advances.   At the same time we are free  to confess that things are better than  they  were.

The Plumbers, Tailors and Street  Railwaymen wrote re Labor Day funds.  Tlie delegates wero instructed to report  at tho next meeting on the matter of  tho Labor Day levy.  The executive committee was instructed to bring in a financial statement, the  secretary assisting.  The matter of the janitor employing a  Chinaman at the V. 0. building was  brought up, when it was decided to  lodge a protest with Mr. Maxwell.  A delegate asked if the council had  made a ruling regarding a member belonging to more than ono union. The  council decided that it had no jurisdiction in the matter.

Some of the Galicians who were expelled from the Dominion Immigration  hall recently at Winnipeg went to the  country, or accepted work offered them  while others remained in the city.   From  In a previous article I spoke of the  wisdom of workmen uniting to ensure  justice from the huge monopolists,  who .".peak and think that they own  the wealth, and I was nearly saying  the very soul of their fellows. The  editor of the New Yoilc Journal, In  a late issue of his paper asks the  question: "Who Is the real head, the  permanent head of ithe steel trust."  and replies to his question as follows:  "Not Morgan, or Rockefeller or all  the power ot all tlie banks and of all  the great fortunes controls the steel  trust,   now  that  It is  born.  "THE RULER OF THE STEEL  J'RUST IS THE MAN , WHO CAN  CONTROL THE TENS OF THOUSANDS AND HUNDREDS * OF  THOUSANDS OF HUMAN BEINGS  ENGAGED IN THE PRODUCTION ���  OF  STEEL.  "The great financiers have congratulated themselves on putting all their  eggs in one basket. They view with  delight a situation which puts at their  mercy all industries dependent on  steel.  "But .they deceive themselves, and  an awakening is ahead of them.  "They have staked ELEVEN HUNDRED MILLION DOLLARS on ONE  S1NCLE   SET  OF  WORKINGMEN.

In view of the bitter criticism of the  United States and of things American  which comes so freqeuntly from the  Canadian press, It should be noted  that the part played by American enterprise-and-capital In-tho Dominion  Is generally recognized by the more  thoughtful Journals of Canada. The  Canadian Manufacturer, Toronto, declares that Canada must more and  more turn to her southern neighbor  for the capital she needs. SpeaMng  of the resources of the Dominion in  tlie .way of wood for paper pulp, this  Journal says that the promoters in this  industry are all looking to the United  States for capital. It is the same in  other industries, continues The Manufacturer: i  "It was in the United States that  most of the Dominion Iron & Steel  company's issue of $15,000,000 was underwritten last year. It is in New  Yor'k and Philadelphia that a million  dcllai's us being obtained for the new  steel works at ColIIngwood, Ont. To  the United States Mr. Olergue, .president of the new Algoma Central railroad, has hitherto looked for the iviast  sums required for his undertaking,  though he is now in England, presumably to sell the bonds of his road.  If we are ever to get the power developed at Niagara Falls, it must be  by the aid of American enterprise. If  not actual American capital." >���  When you come to thln'k of lt, says  The Herald, also of Montreal, Americans have had a good deal to do and  to say In the development of our resources ;���and -It���i>roceeas-_o-put_the  case as follows:  "Who bought the claims for mines  of our prospectors in British Columbia?  afterward, pocketing fat profits?

They replied  that they would consider the matter.  They were then informod that they  would either have to take the work and  leave the city or be turned out of the  hall. As they still refued to work they  were turned out.  UNION BARBER SHOPS.  The following ia a complete list of  union barber shops In Vancouver.   Is  your barber on the list?  Elite barber shop.

The two blacksmiths at last fell in with his proposals,'  and he, transported ������ ith joy at the prospect of tlieir departure, entertained  them regardless ot expense, at a farewell banquet. At the end ofthe feast  he asked them when, they intended to  set up their smithies. " Well," said one  of them, " he who lived on your left will  go to the smithy on your right, and he  who lived on your right will go to that  on your left."���Translated.  Kitty Miles Krom a Needle.  The idea of the loss of a darning  needle becoming a public calamity  seems to be strange to us of the present  generation, for it is difficult for us to  realize the privations of the pioneers  who first went to Canada, the straits to  which they were at times reduced from  .ack of articles now as common as water  and air, and the preposterous value they  often set upon them. According to the  story of an aged resident of Kitzroy,  Ontario, he well remembers the time  when there was but one darning needle  in that county, and the only mill was a  day's journey distant. One day a Mrs.  Dickson, who chanced to have temporary possession of the darning needle,  and had it carefully stuck in hor apron  in a holder, set oft for the mill with a  bag of grain laid on the back of a horse.  The good lady had a rough road to  travel, and unfortunately lost the darning needle. This was a public calamity  in Kitzroy. Nearly 20 housewives depended upon .that darning needle for  repairing socks and other coarse mending. It passed from ono log house to  another, by special messenger, and every  woman had the use of it one day in  three weeks. Another darning needle  could not then be procured nearer than  _.'erth, a matter of fifty miles away.  Tidings of the disaster which had befallen Mrs. DicKson soon spread, and on  the following morning a dozen women,  some of them accompanied by their  children, and some of them by their  husbands, turned out to search three  miles ot forest path. It seemed a hopeless task, but keen eyes were- bent upon  every portion of tho* highway, and at  length one little girl espied it. A great  shout was raised, and* the good news  was carried along the line of searchers.  The party returned home, and the rejoicing in newly settled Kiteroy that day  was great.  NEW PUBLICATIONS.  POEMS OF THE TIMES. By Miles Meander  Dawson, New York. The Alliance Jfubllihing  Company, 1901.   Cloth; 170pages.   Price,tl.  The world is _nine,to,livo in and enjoy,  Is mine io love in aud to weep,  Is mine to build upon but not destroy,  Is mine to labor ln and sleep.  The world is mine, my heritage it is;  it is not mine alone;  Who's bom of woman, lt is also his,  His title is my own.  The    above  is    from    " Solidarity,"  which, in our opinion, is the best in the  volume.   But after all poetry is a mere  matter of taste.   Tho author's sympathies and ideas are broad and we believe could have been better expressed  in pro.se.   It will   well  repay anyone  interested" inihelabor qiiustion-to read  the book.

A long list ot communications  were read by the secretary, received  from aill  over  the    country,    one  of  which wa__ from the grand president,  giving details of the methods   (being  adopted  by unscrupulous    employers,  who employed PinToerton detectives to  get members to give away the 'business done at the union meetings, and  thus found out who took the most active   pant   and  so  on.   Proof   of  this  was given, and every union man was  warned   against   these >_olnd  of  decoy  ducks, and advised to be on the lookout for tihcm.   There was a long discussion   by   the   members   as   to   the  nos-ltion of tlie boilermakers in the late  arrival  of  the steamship  Garonne   to  Victoria   for     repairs.   A    tre-solutjion  of approval of their conduct was passed unanimously, nnd a similar one to  the  effect   that     the     Boiler   llntars'  union  of  Vancouver  would   not  touch  any   work   on     boats    arriving   from  Amoilcan roast, ports whilst the strike  was in  prog!ess.
