VANCOUVER, B. C;, SATURDAY, DECEMBER 14, 1901.  NO. 12  MINERS AMALGAMATION.  ' Uy a vote���181 for and 29 ngainst^-  tttte underground workers of Nanalmo,  Extension and Alexandra,.V. I., decided on Saturday last* to*affiliate their  several-organizations,, and the executive ���was Instructed to draft., a scheme  under'which the resolution of the men  irtttnild be. put .in force.  :BresIdont Rnlph Smith acted as  chairman and H. G. Shepard secretary.  The; report of " ,.  * u  The Combined Committees  ��T Soiitlh . Wellington, Extension nnd  Manalmo was rend. When the terrible  wine accident occurred on September  30th, rumors weie circulated to the  eilFect that the company intended to  ���give men living at Ladysmlth the  (places'of Extension, miners. A mas'  meeting was held on October 5th, wli ;n  a. committee 'was appointed to Interview the superintendent upon this matter, who said It wus so. Some eight  months 'previous Mr. Dunsmuir suJ.l  ihe imen could live where they pleased,  smd would always have work as lor..,  as they did It properly. Tlie amiilg.i-  .imition question was discussed and !t  was decided that the secretaiy nnd  (president wait on the Nanalmo an]  Alexandra unions to bring about affiliation. ' At this meeting President Ralph  Smith stated what was done at ,in  executive meeting held at Nanalmo,  October 12. It was clearly stated that  tfzdse steps should not be talken and all  reasonable methods be considered, and  tbat a, committee be appointed to wait  opon the employers and to urge, the  advantage of federated .labor conduct-  ad by common-sense constitutions.  trhlfl was accepted and endorsed by the  knteeting. Very strong antipathy against  axtoh a. proposition exised, botli in the  minds of a number -of employers and  employees, and it was decided to ap-  ffooach the management of eaoh'coni-  grnxiy, and try to "get them. to.'work  liarmoniously with the .general affllia-  . ..Moo. Tlhe committee^ interviewed Mr.  . Koblns, who eaidthait'ihe was . -  il i' !������'{ ^    '      '   ~        "'.<���* '   "*       .  'J*���*''" {(*- '"*> -Willing "to TVoIrk-.-:.

He was willing .to  meet them and arrange matters. Tbe  committee also went to Vlotoria, and  . 23rtenslon and South Wellington committee Interviewed Mr. amies Dunsmulr.  -Be agreed to work with Oils own united  eoiiioyees, but said Ire would not oon-  -sont to wortt with a federation ot Na-  oaimb men, and if his men united with  tbem he would havenothlng to do with  4___em, but would close the mines, as be  ,tuA plenty to serve ihis purpose and it  would not affect him. In .the afternoon  at the same day Mr. Smith and George  Johnson met him in his oflice at .the  parliament buildings, discussed the  whole question and he said large num-  - bees of men did not want anything to  flo with. Nanaimo, and he did not pur-  qoob to have anything to do with his  men if they federated. The committee  of all the miners, came together and  discussed the whole matter aind decided to  Ecoommend to the' Separate Lodges  that as Mr. Dunsmulr had agreed to  work with his o>vn united workmen  and, as there ai-e quite 'a few not in  'the-unions at-Extension" "and South  Wellington,' and as there Is no afllli-  - sited .union at Cumberland, the proper  ��� firing to do .was to get all these men  aud local unions affiliated before doing  anything more with the affiliation, but  to pemnlt the committee to stand and  fiend any necessary assistance to each  Other in bringing about federation of  the unions. Another general commlt-  ,tcc meeting was hVjld, when the re-  ,���'.' ports from the;local" lodges were��� pre-  ecnted, and we 'find that the commlt-  " tec's report was endorsed. This may  ���ecm inconsistent, so far as the  apodal committee's reports were en-  donsed   by   tho   unloiw, that a mass  ,.'���., 'mooting should have been called to further consider the same qmefrtiort, but  ,  Jt was explained that the Extension  ��� committee were anxious and asked for  it, thus It was decided to have the  meeting Saturday, the purpose of  which was to discuss the question of affiliation by the .South Wedllng-  ��� ton; Extension and Nanalmo miners  ��od mine laborers.

The Ladysmlth Leader says tliilt  , A Notice "Was Posted Up  by some unknown persons at the Alexandria mine, on Friday Heading som-_-  thlng to the effect that 'this mine would  be closed.next day owing to a mast,  meeting of miners to 'be held1 dt Nanaimo on Saturday, December 7bh. It  goes on to'say:'--"Mr. Ralph Smith,'M.  P., may be congratulated 'by those .who  deliglut in seeing the materials for a  grand ruction working uj> nicely to  bursting point, on the- success of hi��  persuasive .powers; but who .would, occupyhis boots when tits' storm burets  and he has lo shoulder the responsibility for the paralyzatlon of theccal  trade at a time when ith�� oil companies are eagerly seeking an opening to  oust coal fiom the' California market  and substitute their wares?" This kind  of talk shows exactly what the union  men are up against.  Uioke Away. '>  The NanaJnio Herald says: The Alexandria men have not* been long in  breaking away fiom Uie luiwilgainatloi.  with the other lou^l unions, they deck".  lng upon tliis course at a meeting held  at the Yon Tuesday evening. The flrst  step taken after the meeting hod convened was-the sending of a committee  to Superintendent Iflaulds to ask the  duration and cause*of the closing of  tbe mine. Mr. Eaulds, it is reported,  replied that Uie mine had been closed  down, Indefinitely for everal reasons.  These were that the men had left their  work on Saturday, that they had, contrary to Mr. Dunsmuir's wishes, amal  ���gatnated with the Namaimo union, that  they insisted upon being niaid one dol  Jar Instead of eighty cents for string  ���ers, and .finally because 75 pounds of  nock had 'been found ln a car at Victoria. The men returned and reported  to thlermeetlng and a .very stormy(.tl_ne  ensued. AUter a long and exciting debate the motion to dissolve the amalgamation was put and carrledi by 18  to 28. The Ladysmitth Leader says that  It ls believed there that the mines will  be opened again shortly. This, official  statements to the: contrary, notwithstanding, may be made necessary, owing to .the demand for coal and the  unexpected failure to render No. 3  slope, Extension, available. It is further reported that the Ladysmlth m_=n  will form a protective union of their  own ? without? affiliation.  AN HONEST DOLLAR.

' A deputation consisting ot Ralph  Smith, M. P., James Bateman and T.  H. Hawthornthwalte, -M. P. P., arrived at Victoria frorji Nanalmo on Tuesday for the purjxise of interviewing  the acting minister of mines in the interests of the miners of Nanalmo, Alexandria and Extension. Mr. Hawthornthwalte said that their mlssloln was  with regard to tlhe amendment to the  Coal .Mines Regulation act. Under this  act .the lleutenant-governor-in-councll  ihas.the power .to draw rules and regulations governing Che examinations to  ���be hlejd /under certain sections of the  act- It provides that ��� miners, shot  iighters, Are* bosses and oven men  should hold cer.t_flco.tes for competency.  The .miners of .Na.nalino,_Alexa ndrla  and Extension' are desirous of seeing  these provilslons fully and carefully  carried out.  tontlonand interest; to the c|ose;' The  speaker said in part: One o^ the rrtost  characteristic j  Features of Hcathlen Society  Is mutual d'lstrust. The Orient, from  Japan to Tut key. Is shrouded in an,at-  moaptere of fraud, deceit and suspicion. A number of Illustrations of this  fact were mentioned by t'he speaker.  The result of the dishonesty of the  Orient Is a general1 paralyslis of "enter-  pilse. Unlverf-tir fraud and trickery  causes mistrust, which Is fatal to lar,s<  commercial enterprises. The only  pound foundation of trade is honesty  "Ye shall do no unrlghteous.Hess" In  business. This Is a fundamental -principle cf tommeiclnl enterpilse and d---  volcpment.

Honesty is tbe best politics, .the best  finlanolal policy and best seourlty for  investments. An honest dollar is the  currency of prosperity.  The English Hell. .  Carlyle writes: 'The'word hell Is  still frequently in use among the English people; but I could not without  difficulty ascertain, what they meant  by It. Hell generally dignities the Infinite Terror, the thing a man Is Infinitely afraid of and shudders at and  shrinks from, struggling with .his whole  soul to escape from it. . . Now, what  .is ^lt,. lt' you plercie through* i__ls. cants  his oft-rejieated hearsays, what he  oalls ills worships and so forth���what  Is It ..that 'the modern English soul does  in truth, dread Infinitely sum contemplate with entire despair? What is  his hell? With hesitation, with astonishment, I pronounce it to be the tei-  ror of not aucceedlng, chiefly of not  making money." Whether it be tne  terror of this hell or some other cause,  we know that the proud reputation of  the great English merchant princes is  that of aibsolute integrity. ��� The trade  mark of the great English houses Is  guarantee of honest goods. This fact  has .probably done more for British  commerce than any other single Influence. While Oriental fraud Was i>ar-  alyzed the commercial vitality of the  East, British honesty in the maiikets of  t'he world has established world-wide  oredlt and commerce. WBiUe, we are  proud of the comparative excellence of  our ''  Commercial Standards,  still the "heaDhea Chinee" will And  abundant dishonesties if be be inclined  to hurl stones at us. We have still  every Mnid! of thief from the pick-pocket ' to the respeotaible 'kleptomaniac and  sharp financier., Probably, there could  be found men in this city, men of re  spectable connections, who, under a  sermon om "Thou sihalt not steal,"  would feel as uncomfortable as the/ven-  THE NEWSBOYS' BANQUET.

To go no farther abroad thorn our own  province to find tlie injurious results  of fraud, has anything, been more detrimental to its development than the  fake schemes audi fraudulent mining  companies which haive (been promoted  by (financial sharks? Legitimate and  honest enterprises have been blighted  by the mistrust 'arfcrin*: from frequent  frauds. This province, -with its wonderful resou roes,: can be boomed more  quickly Iby political amd commercial  honeety that 'by aniy   otter   method.  Without a record ot Integrity vve shall  luck credit, and It Is difficult to allure  capital to places where credit has lx__n  shaken by fraud.  ' An Honest Dollar  rejiresontis a fair exchange ln labor or  in goods. No dirt clings to it. One  hundred dents'worth of labor is ooined  into it. The tear of the widow and of  the oppressed has .not tarnished It.  Fori it honor and truth 'have not been  bartered. Tested by tlhe.Golden Rule  It is full Weight and rings true. Give  no-less titan te due and taitoe no more  than Is Just and your dollar will be  honest. It will shine in your hand like  a '.mirror to reflect the cheerful countenance of your Integrity. We love Uie  man who Makes honest dollars. He Is  our friend. If wo have a horse to  trade or desire lo puircliase a barrel of  apples vve ihunt up our honeist frleihl.  He Inspires us with confidence and he  gtithera In our trade. We even i>rofeit  to be lilke him, or if wis are not vve  dine not confess it. Dien a thief do-  tilres to'be thought honest. This i-s tho  tribute that fraud pal's to the value  5f honesty.

While vve know the ���value of a gool  reputation In: business vve often seek  a double profit���the business that honesty brings and the deceitful profits of  fraud. Under the mask of honesty  men play the tricks of trade and damn  themselves as double-dyed villains and  hypocrites. Professing to he. honest,  they gouge the public dally. Lyi.ig  bargain advertisements extend the business of fraud. A merchant has a right  to give baireai'ras and the people to ta ke  them. But some, like those offeied by  tihe plaiuslble auctioneer, are* too palpable. To tnailk $5 goods up to*$7 in  order Jo^make, "a, sweeping, reduction^!  to $4.99 may be profitable, but it is mot  honest.        ��� v- '  Extortionate Prices  are ways to plunder the Innocent. We  all know that diamonds, drugs and  silks and articles In small demand must  bs handled upon a wider mat gin of  profit than staples. But trade is full of  fraudulent overcharging that would  not stand the test of the Golden Rule.  Dishonest'goods malte dishonest dollars. Good water with some commodities acts like gravel om turtceys Just  before sale day, It increases "the profit  without increasing the expense. Gelatine mixtures for jiure fruit Jams, flour  in mustards, cotton In woollens, decayed fruit In the centre of the barrel.  There are tricks In all trades. Dishonest wonk makes dishonest dollars.  Workmen cheat their employers and  contractors defraud their patrons. A  man receiving ?1 a day Is not earning It  unless he is earning more. Many men  grumble at their wages when they are  not worth what they receive. They  move with feet of lead and arms of  wax, scamp their work, loiter when the  boss Is away, and are  Untrustworthy.

And there arc men as well as women  who want cheiij) goods.   Such for. example seldom .patronize skilled  laibor  so far as their clothes are concerned.  They pass Into the,ready-made store,  and want tho best clothes, and w;ll  made���the suit must be   cheap    nnd  good.   Such never think of the Eoller,  or the maker of the garments. .Th'iy  do not care a cent how such live. If  only they get what they want.   It's a  matter of self-interest or gain    with  them.   Tho golden rule under, competition Is a figment, but   laboring   men  ought not only to Iknow better, but they  ought to do better than sedk for cheap  goods.   Go Into the sweat shop.   Locik  at that mian, ilJliat woman, that .child  woman, making these garments.   Look  at  the clothes they   weair.    Look   at  their conpse-lilce faces, telling of literal  starvation.    That's  what  cheap,  gi,ol  clothes jiiea'n.   John Ruskin vvas right  vWien he said, whenever vve try to buy  or buy cheap goods, gocd3 offered at  ffices ' which vve know cannot be" remunerative  for the  labor  Involved  in  tihem,' vve are pillaging the poor. V/hen-  ever we buy such goods vve aye steal-  'ng fc'ebocly's    Lubor.    Dcn't   let u*  ���n_noe matte,s.   Let us say It In good  i>'.2.n &a:_or.���-,v-e aie   stealing, we arc  t-iklng Horn these poor people the reward which is due them, and we are  putting the same into our own pockets.   Now this ory for cheap things ls  a serious matter.    Wherever you see  , the " effects  of this ': ruinous ������ spirit' of  competition you see two   things���the  skilled workman ls either driven out,  or he Is reduced to a .tower .level; either  of these results is nothing short of calamity.    A skilled   laborer    Ls of the  greatest .value to a community.   He is  of service to everything in it.   He is a  feeder; an anrlcher;��� and .'-��� a supporter.  The better the competence he gets, the  more does he contribute-to the,benefit  of the whole   community.   He   helps  everything- and everybody.   Cheap labor becomes eventually a burden  on  the' oommunlty/_ Even r vv-hen able to  work the cheap laborer can contribute  nothing to the support of anything, and  when he ceases to labor, he and all hir  belongings .ibeconve a fixed, icharge, oi  the community.   They may enrich the  capitalist, but everybody else suffers  We are beginning to feel this in Vancouver.    Let   anyone    take   a   walk  through the Chinese quarters, and he  will be amazed to iflnd the numbers  sewing machines that aire going practically night and. day.   I am told that  a great many merchants, .Instead    of  employing ��� white skilled labor,  which  would be a' distinct gain. to. the city,  are employing Chinese labor, whioh Is  a distinct loss.    If all these machines  were  runi 'by   properly    remunerated  white laibor. It 13 not difficult to realize that,Vancouver would just be so  inuoh. the* *  .   -        .  "More Prosperous  than lt Is to-day. I will say nothing  about the Ohlnaman as a man, but as  a competitor, ias one taking the bread  away from our brethren, vve must have  something to say. Of course we are  told. that.Chinamen do the,work cheaper and hence are employed. Well, what  is the effect of this? It is driving gool  vvortanenjout, and the loss of one good  workman Is a Joss to the city. The gain  of one Ohinaanan Is a loss to the city  for, the .reason that he contribu tes* to  not-onc"t,hing"ln"Itr_The_morei"China^  men vve have In .the city, and: the fevv-  [Contlnued on Page Three.]  er skilled workingmen vve have In the  city, meams that tlie white element will  have more; taxes to .pay. If It was  otherwise our'burdens would be lighter.  Again, tliis means 'the reducing of the  prlcei or reward of labor. If a white  man wants to stay In the city he.has  to do his.';��� wortt for so much less, because of Chinese competition, and by  doing so, he Is rendered less "efficient  for the dlsoharge of his duties as a  citizen.' That also Is 'a'dlstilnct less to  t'he city.; The same Is true with regard  to our saw mills.' Here also wc meet  with the demand for cheap labor.- We  nre told tlint mill owners muyt employ  Chinese and Japanese to make the  mills pay. I don't believe that. If the  so called iblg mon who do little got u  little less, and If the working men who  do the worit got a little more, there  would be enough for all. The lemploy  ment of Mongolians In our mills means  either the driving out.of white laborer  means reducing white labor to the level  of Mongolian laibor, and either of these  again Is a distinct loss to the city.  Cheapness then means cheap labor.   It  either means, as Ruskin puts It, a rage  for bad commodities, or it ds an attempt  to llnd persons whose ���necesHltles will  force them to let you have more than  you  should : for your   money,    it   Is  quite easy to produce such persons In  largo--numbers,.'for the more Ulstreja  there Is In oi .nation the more you can  obtain cheapness of this sort, and your,  'boasted  cheapness is thus ''merely, a  measure of the extent of your national  distress.  Any system which does either  of these1 things���and competition does  both���is destructive of the best Interests of all.'  In fact,' as Rev. Dr. Donald  Macleod,    chaplain   of    our    beloved  Queen, says:    "The   wicked   love of  cheapness In the Christian; public who  hunt for bargains, without ��cnslderlrig  .the.'fearful'cost,' In the grinding dovv'n,  dowin of -the;llves;of the .producers'at  which  theie bargain* are possible,  is  a sin which, cries .aloud for redress."  Tihat is true, but then, competition says  there must  be    .no    Interference���the  combat.mts must light It out.   We are  wiser,  t'ai.cr,   more humanitarian   today than 'vv hen this system vvas adopted, and I believe  the cry for redress  will be answered, when this revolting  system will be swept away.   I want to  burn this lii'to the brains of my rea 1-  ers.   Cheap goods means cheap labor, .  and cheap labor means  Cheap Men and Women.  I saw a iplcture some time ago, called  a  slav,�� marlket at  Cairo.    There  be-  ioie '*ou 'yeie women and children ln   ���  all postures, with woe begone expressions stamped upon their faces.   While.  the picture wa3 a revolting one, yet it  touched   the  heart, audi brought ��� tho  tears to the eye.   It was a picture of  the reign of cheapness.   There as you  saw the slave owner standing with the  slave   'buyer,   and. examining    these  slaves >as if they were cattle, the heart  became sui charged  ���with' Indignation.  Then as you thought of the price .for  which these slaves were bartereds why  you felt bubbling over with paraionate  fury.    Cheap, cheap���>es,<idlrt cheap,  as the s'aylng Is.   Now as you gaze at  the picture which our social and industrial systems are palnUng for us, the  one^as reaLand as true as the other;  as.you'gaze uponour Industrial slaves'  which areto'be found-In every'large  city, as you think of their long, vv eary  hours of labor, without a ray of sunshine to cheer them; as you see then  penned up like dumb cattle;  as  you  ��.ee their emaciated forms, their cadaverous looks, and as you think of tha  miserable pittance which is doled out  to them for their contributions to the  well being of society, I hardly know  wihlch  picture makes me'more indignant.   But as you look at It you realize that 'a ,man, a woman and a child  are cheap things ln the Industrial market  where self Interest holds    swiy.  Can .you help exclaiming,  with good,   ���  genial    Thomas Hood,. O,  God, that  bread should 'be so dear, and flesh and  blood so cheap.  'My reader, just as the  be3t voices ln the world have said, this  slave 'business must e.nd, for men are  better and nobler than cattle, so the  same i"oiees will demand the abolition  of cheapness in Its application to   the  labor of men's   hands.    Cheap*   goois  mean  cheap   if bor,   and  cheap   labor  means aheap men, 'but there is something .more. All this costs something.  Honest labor costs something,  but if  that Is not paid, another cost looms up  more  terrible,    more    revolting,    and    >  more dangerous still. ;Wlhat is sown ls ,  reaped. ' Never forget th'at.  This brl'ng3  us face to face with the blackest, vil  est, and most loathsome sloe of .the  picture, or rather the culmination of  all that has gone before., Let me help  you to paint It and Insuciiiuiid colors that you will never forget it.

Three hundred noses were blown simultaneously with a vehemence that  was startling. The olllcer looked around  and blushed violently In great surprise.

The Province  in an  able  a;tide on  Tuesday   discusses  the funcilnus  of  a  daily neivsp.i,pe-i- "JYoni a business point  of view."   It is stated that there is "a  radical   deviation   from     long-pursued  paths  in methods of  conduct,"  which,  by the  way,  ".have not been initiated  in  Canada."    This is ntitural  enoug-h,  when viewed from a commercial standpoint only.   In the enily days of Journalism editors und proprietors oi' nevvs-  pap3is weie men cu' piinciple tend honor, and their writings on questions nf-  fectins    public    policy    had     weight.  "Their    word    was   as proud    as lhelr  bond," 'as lit weie.   They would not nil-  Mocine   thing's   they .knew    not  to  be  right   for  a. .mere  consideration.    Bo-  ���au.se,   If   tluy   did.   their   piibllc.it'.on  ���would  lop,!  eu-ste. 'nnd   would   become  practically  u<_j!c_>s even  n.s nn  advertising  medium.    And   this  is  still   tha  case with a ninjority cf the editors and  Pi'oprialors of  tlie  best p.'ipor.s of the  United .Kingdom;  nnd.only .the other  day   the   highly  salaried   editor   of  n  leading London p.i.]ier reslgnsd bis position,  because 'he could tig*  eonsclen-  tiously advocate  its views on nn  im-  3)orta.nt  question.    They  used  on  this  continent  to  dlscuys   the  doctrines of  free trade and ..protection with ths p3o-  ple, when effonts were made to regulate  the tariff so as ito  promote mnnufne-  tui'ing,     subject     to    which    it    was  argued thai competition Uhercln would  bo   the   life  of   trade.    This   was   nil  rlg'ht for party papers so long as these  conditions .covering    trade    and" com-1  nierce lasted, ibut Uvey are not so any  longer.   Editors the country over know-  that the gieat trusts ihuve killed competition because the production by machinery "3 noiv-n-days conducted cannot be  consumed by the  masses, uii'l  consequently the economic .principles of  (protection and free trade have died a  natural death, so far as ibeins live  sues vvith .tihe public.   And governments  'are all t'he s.ime.   It Is 'now u question  ivith the people wlhether the trusts will  ���be allowed lo continue to control and  regulate trade a.nd comiuerc��, and until the lissaie is settled  the pn.pers will  prostitute tlheir principles in the interests of trusts or any body  willing to  patronize   their editorial   columns  the  same ns space.    Papers are sprlngliifj:  up all over the land and dying off ny  the 'thousand In this .mad rot-e of coin-  petition  for supremacy.    'Phis will  so  continue till they, too, foi-in. .trtiMts a.nd  ipool advertising rates, Tor tlie paper.s  are not run as purveyors of  news in  the  accepted  sense of  the   term,   but  merely aa  advertising  mediums.    The  doing away  with  mass  meetings was  onoe talked of because It was thought  that the people could depend, upon the  arguments set forth 'by editors In their  journals  boiiiir .bona   ,flde.    But    they  soon got over that notion.   Go Into the  ���average- newspaper- o_ll.sj-to-dny-n.iHl  you will find editorial wrlteis who don't  believe one word they write und don't  care, because they sell their brains fo  the  wages  tbtey receive.

One of the' things iiml our city council should turn their .mention to at nn  early dnto Is tihe acquiring ot the city  telephone service.  labor unions in Canada have been  quainted of the fact. Being a premier  ones .himself no doubt Hon. Mr. Blair  took his cue from Premier Dunsmulr  on the aheap labor problem.

'Modern commerce   depends   upon  ,thls   system   of  credit.    Its o'lly sound basis is a high  ���commercial  morality.    Dishonest failure to meet just debts undermines tlie  very foundations of business.   An. unwise credit Is apt to .become an unpaid  ���debt.

Our text Is fundamental commercial law.. If you cannot be trusted  you are unworthy of a place In society.  'You help to destroy the mutual con-  ���Sktence of men upon which    the organization or Bocdety ia  based.    You  extend .the Orient to the west, and crc-  itoteam atmosphere of mistrust aind suspicion Injurious to business, discreditable to men and dishonoring to God.  It 'is when wc consider' the history of  those  Modern  Octopuses,  the gre.Lt corporations, thnt all our conceptions of honesty are confounded by  the colossal nature of frauds   that they  perpetrate.    Individuals  retain    some  conscience,   but  tlie  corporation ds   a  soulless cone-em in which each olllcljj  evades responsibility except for male-  dig his department pay.   Tihe (history  of railroading, for example, .In Amelia,  exhibits some of the most remarkable  swindles   elver  perpetrated.     Not  only  by means of .stock watering and 'bonding, so that the people are compelled  to .pay dividends on many times' .the  cost of the load, but also by .political  corruption, 'have  these great concerns  become the most demoralizing factors  in modern ibulsness.    They spend millions of dollars to influence legislation.  They own newspapers, polltloians and  legislators.    lJiovinces and  states become pocket boroug'.is of railroad magnates.    Theie  facts add   tremendously  to the agitatioin for government ovvnar-  sh!p.    A moral as well as commercial  necessity is licin'- lj.!d upon the people  to take pc-.caslon of these natural monopolies, and i iin them in. the Interest-,  of .the public, -nut for t'he immense en-  I'ltiiment of .i few.  Honesty and Ueform.  A broader and deeper conception of  honesty is pricing in the minds of men.  Not only must the man be honest with  society,   but  society  must ' be 'honest  with the man.    Social Institutions ro-  quiie to be lecon&trucipd according to  the standard of an ihonest dollar.    Let  no liiaai and no institution  take mor/j  than I.s ju��l nor give less than Is due���  that  Is the law of the honest dollar  Applied lo modern industry a.nd' property, fills iprinclplc is .scarcely less than  revolutlon.il y.     You cannot   now giive  to every mini just payment of all that  he earns as ivoik'inan and citizen without reorganizing the entire fabric of  industry.   This ls the underlying principle of every great reform.   "What are  socialism, sigle tax,  government ovvn-  eishlp, direct legislation  and   prohibition movements but various  ways of  applying   the standard   of  tlie honest  dollar to society?   They resolve themselves .finally Into efforts to cause every  man to earn honest dollars and .to render unto overy man ihis due.  The Dishonest Dollar  has distunbe-d the social 'harmony long  enough.   We have put sued thieves and  -1  pickpockets,   but  we .have established  methods 'by wlilch some may reap rich  harvests .where they sow no seed, and  I many must starve who clamor for  wotik. Do" ithe poor receive their due?  Do the wealthy earn honest millions?  These are questions that men are asking to-day. They ore only .preliminary  to an attempt to readjust the affairs of  the world "according to .higher moral  sfaniaids. Social evolution proceeds  according to inc-ral principles. Wc are  accustomed to conventional honesty,  defined by statutes,-often purchased.  But honesty Is Justice and Is the Judge  not the product of statutes? Conscience  cannot be tested by civiil or criminal  "codes  ila-ny-things .to-day~~ltli.it lire  legally 'honest are morally dishonest.  To-morrow they \ will be1 legally dls-  .honest, for -the'law of an ihonest dollar  to one who earns It and to none who  earn lt not  ���Must Prevail.  Says Henry George'of the land laws:  "There   is   a system   whlolil  robs   the  producers . of  wealth as  nemoi-selcssly  and fui' more regulurly and systematically than the pirate robs the    merchantman."    If  this   be .true,   who m  ffullty?   Itobbery by moral Judgment Is  legal and honest by statute.   How then  shall the standard of nn honest dollar  be Applied to.the ancient and venerable  institutions e��tnibllshod by law?   How  sliall wilder and 'inore perfect Justice be  doiw'ln tlie social organization?   These  are the great modern questions.    Men  are striving to Icnrn how the distribution of wealth iby society shall be governed 'by honesty as perfectly n�� the  production of wealth  Is govern**.! by  Intelligence.   These are vast moral issues.   They are problems created  by  a union of, Christianity and.  modern  commerce.   They are problems of aip-  the deplorable ''result���the awful crime  duo to the system "against which  She Struggled In, Vain.  The great novelist   paints,    describe,  what 'lie knows,  the  poor girl  passes  on to the streets and becomes a moril  wreck.   That Is one of,the products of  oh��i]> goods.    Kuskin in  Sesame amd  Lilies, say,*:    The British public nre,  however, at home, so innocent ,of ever  buying .their   fellow  creatures',    livos.  They do not perhaps  .calculate    how  souls flit annually, choked in lire damp  and sea sand,   from  cheap    watch id  shafts,  and cheap manned   ships; nor  see the .fiery ghosts writhe up out. of  every scuttleful of   cheap   coals,  nor  count'how ni'jny threads of girlish life  are  cut off ,imd  woven   annually by  painted   jades,   Into   breadths   of ball  dresses,  or soaked away like    rotten  fibre in the inlet   or Cocytus,    whicn  overflows the grass market, where flesh  is grass."    No, but it Is done all the  Mime,   the product   of cheap    gotods.  Itemize one class.   On ithe one side we  have cheai)  goods.    On  the  other we  have one hundred girls done to death  befoie their time,  two hundred children killed by pre vent I ble  diseases  to  slums, ten boys or more sent Into the  way.of crime by hunger and neglect,  girls sent to a life of shame by similar causes.   We have .the cost of keeping paupers, of burying paupers.    AVe  have an increase of rates for police and  pnWon oillcials.   Yes, and you might go  on adding, adding to the contia side of  the account, until you ulse exclaiming,  cheap goods are tlhe dearest goods ever  made.   Just as the hands of Lady Macbeth   were stained   so after   the de-_\l  that neither water  could  clean  them  ,nor  perfume1 sweeten  tnem,  so   these  cheap garments aro stained entry one  of them with the blood of some being.,  Selling cheap and  buying cheap���yes,  but remember  tiie    awful    cost,    the  crimes, the liorrors, the villanlos associated with their production.   'My leaders,  are  these  things woi't'n    having?  Cul  bono?    Are    cheap    goods worth  asking  for or worth, buying?       Is  it  worth while .to continue this horrible  ruin nnd slaughter ot humanity for the  salce of .having ithem, or for the sake  of ohuckHng over a great bargain, or  of putting something Into your pocket?  Forbid tihe 'thought.    Crush the desire  and abhor the custom.    To nil this, of  course, there are answers, argument*,  quibbles,,  which     manufacturers - ami  loveis   of   the system  are  continually  flu-owing at  us  as   their' apology for  what is.    'Ilhe facts are not denied, in  fact that cannot be denied.    Tliey tell  us  we  have1  to  compete.    There, are  dishonorable men In trade who resort  io every trick in order to get on top.  For Self Preservation  vve  must liave  cheap labor,   and   the  cheaper the better to suit our purposes,  There 'Is no .need for this if we  were  only sensible, and  not senseless.    As  Carlyle pointed out long ago, why not  sell equally?   The dem.i.nd is not how  fills or t'ttat may be 'Cheaper.   Heauen  knows  as   these   things  aie 'they, are  cheap enough, but to'devise means how  things may be justlicr divided amons  us. Let Inventive men consider whether  the secret ofthe universe and of man's  life does after all, as we rashly fancy  lt, consist In 'ma.klng money.   There Is  one God, just, supreme, almighty, but  Is mammon the name of Hlni? wHbh a  .hell,  which  means,  falling    to    make  money.   The mammon 'gospel of supply  and demand, competition, lalssez faire,  ar_d-devil-taika~the-_i.lnd_nost-begln_j-to  bo one of .the shabbiest gospels ever  preacheU."    Yes, no doubt lt is.    Carlyle preaiiihed tha't long ago, .but there  he was like another, John the Baptist,  a voice crying .In the wilderness.   The  Idea ot a nation growing and subsisting on cloth a farthing less seemed to  him the iheight of "nonsense.   To him  the Idea of a-gospel of greed and gain  being  accepted   ns  the  true   cvaii_r<I  seemed and  was  revolting.    The tension .Is growing, the misery is spreading.   The   best   of   .men are recalling  from tihe thought that we must have  cheap goods, with all these attendant  horrors, In order to maintain our tvi-  tlonal supremacy.    No, not that vvny.  It Is a 'broad way, but it ls the way  of death.    It Is men, not goods, th.it  triumph  every  time.    It Is men,  not  goods, that make a "nation.    Give un  strong and skilful men.

The Story of n Brant Fonnder'a  Transformation of Gambrliinn.  A stoiy ls tcld of a binss founder  who was one day -visited by a fiiend  acting as agent for one of the cities of  Centinl Ameilea The agent asked  what It would cost to enst a statue of  Chilstopher Columbus for the public  square of the city. The aino' nt was  far in excess of tlie sum w hlc the man  had at his dlspos.il He a.is about  leaving in despair of being able to secure the statue when the binss founder  said:  "Come back In the junk yard and let  un sec what can be found tlicio."  lie wont buck, and the binss founder  showed him a culos-al statue of (Sum-  bilmis, recently removed from the  front of a huge blowing establishment.  Under his feet rested a beer keg, In his  hnnd wns a laige and ovei lion Ing  schooner, his bcnitl vvas long and shaggy, and about his brows was vvteathed  a garland of bai ley nnd hops.  "Why, this will never do," said the  commission meichant. "I vvnnt a statue of Columbus."  "Walt until I have touched this one  ui> Come buck In about a week and  see what you think of It. If It suits  jou, you can have It for tho amount  jou hnve at your disposal."  As soon ns the vlsltoi had gone the  binss founder set two men at work on  the figure of Garabrlnus. They removed the boer Keg from under his  light foot and placed there an anchor  and n coll of tope, from his hand they  removed the goblet nnd substituted a  globe, with the continents tiaeed on  lt; from his brow they took the wieath  of barley nnd hops and substituted n  wreath of laurel and then proceeded to  trim up bis whiskers. The finishing  touch consisted In putting nt the base  of the statue "Cilstoforo Colombo "  When the commission merchant came,  he was delighted with the figure and,  purchasing It, shipped It to the Central  Ameilcnn city, wheie it ndorns the  public square and Is looked upon with  veneration by the citizens of tbat town. *  FIRES CAUSED BY NAtLS.

"Can you get it for that?" asked  one of the women.  "I'll oiler 3d,000 and raise it by  easy stages to So.OOO. It's worth  the money all right enough.

"There's a pictuie over there I  want' to buy," said he to a littlo  man with a bioom who came out of  a passageway. "Who must I see  about it, and wliero'cun I find him?"  Tho little man stared at him and  asked what he meant/ and the American repeated that ho. wanted to buy  a picture oil the wull and wanted  to seo tho boss right away.

It was the day afler the wedding and  wet enough 'to damp ihe ardor of the  most devoted or bridegrooms. And  John Uiiniptoii was not the inost devoted, lie had married, n�� most cnu-  tbsuH and scllMi young men do. because he want nl a home and some one  to look after his home comforts. lie  had tried housekeepers, but they had  proved Tallin es one and all. They  wanted tiio many evenings out. nnd  their appearance was not calculated to  decorate any smart little suburban  villa.  Andso John meilltaleil deeply about  the matter. Should lie hamper himself  with .a"..wife or should lie engage another lady housekeeper uud see how  lhat worked'.  "Why not combine the two and get  ,i wire ns well ns a lady housekeeper?"  thought John, aud so he kept a sharp  eye round hlni I'or a bright, pretty domesticated girl whom he could honor  iVlth his Intentions.with a view to matrimony.  And at last bis diligent search was  rewarded. Madeline Gray possessed  every attraction and virtue that John  had 'determined his pretty wife should  have. She was pretty, brilliantly pretty. Her hair was like spun'gold, aud  her eyes were ns blue as the bluest of  china; but. as John Hampton remarked, beauty was, not everything, aud  Madeline's hands, though small uud  white, wore the 'nimblest'In' the world.  She could knit, nnd she could sew, she  could wash, and,- yes, she could even  scrub, und do It nil In the daintiest and  most becoming mnuncr too. Truly  .Madeline Gray wns a Jewel which only  required the setting of that little Norwood vllln to perfect. ���  And John Hampton thought himself  ovtremely lucky when this model of  virtues accepted his attentions nud Inter his dignhiod proposal of marriage,  and that wns how he happened to be  looking out of the-window of his'modest little apartments nt Brighton one  very wet dny In May.      /  The scene was depressing enough.  The sea looked dark nnd gloomy, the  beach was desiM'tcd.'hnd'now and then  a dejected looking Individual enveloped  In a mackintosh hurried along the parade with the beeming object of get-  ling home as quickly as possible.  "Honeymoons are a mistake," -said  John to himself. "If I hadn't wanted  h'V'hnnge of air, I shouldn't have,come.  It's nii ideal morning I'or the seaside, I  must say."  At that moment .Mrs. Hampton entered the room, and he turned to greet  her.  "Not a very charming morning, my  dear, Is it?" said he amicably.  "Well, whnt'cnn you expect from n  plnce  like   Brighton?"  said  his  wife  .coolly.   "It's all the same here whether  It rains or shines."  ���iJohn raised his eyebrows in surprise.  "Why, my dear"��� he began anxiously-  ��� "You thought I liked Brighton, I suppose," Interrupted Mrs. Hampton calmly. "Well, It's a pity you didn't trouble to Inquire befoie.''As yon arranged  this holiday yourself, you mustn't  grumble, uud now come and have your  breakfast."  To say thnt Mr. Hampton was surprised Is stating the case too mildly.  He was simply astounded. He looked  nt his wife as at some Chinese puzzle.  Was this self possessed and commanding woman really the, meek'and sub  'lined little maiden he had "married the  day before?  (And yet there she sat. her golden  head ns golden as ever, ber eyes as  blue, pouring put the coffee with as  much sang frold as If she had been  .Mrs. Hampton for years.  ���u'Upresmne-you-ordered-thls breakfast,", she said ns she finished her task.  V'^yes, dear,", said John. "Is there"���  "Noi there Isn't anything I like." she  replied, without troubling him to finish  his remark, and looking at,the. viands  un the .table. '"Will you please ring the  bell?"   John obeyed, nnd when the mold appeared she gnve an order for n new  ialil egg nud a piece of hot toast, pass-  lug the cold ment to her husband with  the dignity of a queen.  And a very good breakfast she made  too. John was rather taken aback; lu  ills Idea delicate nnd rellned women  should eat very little nnd or the dnlnil-  i��t viands, and this morning uieul of  Ills wife's surprised lilm ns much ns  Iter manner hnd dono. She hnd acted  so ilin'erehtly during tlielr engagement.  Evidently he had misunderstood. her,  and he detenulned to assert Ills authority as her lord and master at once.  There was no time to lose. "Lvt a wo-  ilium get' the upper 'hand," thought  John, "nnd your inlluence is gone forever."  ' And so. after the breakfast things  were cleared ���away, he told ber to put  on Her bonnet and accompany'blm foi  a long walk. ��� ,   .  , "Good gracious, John, are you mad?"  snld Jils \vlfc.   "In weather like this"'.  "CiMt.'ihily.   It will do ypu far uiou-  geod than stopplog at home.  Come, do  as i tell vou."  Mrs.; Hampton looked at him scornfully.  "John Hampton," sho said Ormly. "If  you hue to go.out and oontraet a chill,  I've no objection,; except: that I shall  have the ��� trouble of nursing you, but  don't take mo quite, for a fool. I shall  1 stay indoors and write ft long letter to  mamma."  And so, very much crestfallen at his  first attempt to assert his authority,  John put on his hat and went down on  the beach and numsed himself by making ducks and drakes on the waves.  But, In time this sport became tame,  and, after buying somb cigarettes nud a  newspaper, he retraced his steps once  more to the house.  On his way ho passed a couple who  were walking under n large umbrella.  The man hnd his right arm round the  girl's waist, and the girl held up a  radiant face to his nnd wns chatting  'charmlngl-tv' They appeared to be'pcr-  fcfitly oblivious to the rain and everything but Just themselves.  For some reason or other John sighed  heavily and then to excuse himself of  tlio weakness looked, after thorn contemptuously and denounced them as  deluded fools.  When he reached home. Mrs. Hampton met him at the door and asked  him to kindly post her letters., There  were two���one to mamma, certainly,  but the other was addressed to a young  man who had been a freauent cnller at  the maternal home,until their engagement was announced.  "Excuse mc,"'he snid ln a dignified  manner.'".'.'."May I he Informed of the  contents of this letter?"  "No, you mny not," snld.Mrs. Hampton stiffly. "And your request is nn  insult. Pray mnke haste back, as luncheon is on the table."  Aud again.John obeyed, though with  very 111 grace.  The next day Mrs. Hampton declared  ���that honeymoons were very dull.  "You had better give notice here and  pay the week's hills and take rooms ot  one of tbe best hotels. It will be a  treat to see a few people,at mealtimes  even if one does not speak to.them.'.'  ��� At,this John mude a strenuous protest, ne hated a large gathering, he  said, and much preferred a quiet life.  'Besides, ho was hurt and mortified that  she should so soon tire of his company.  In a honeymoon a wife and husband  Bhould be all and all to one another. It  should be a brief time sacred to themselves, a time when there should be no  Intrusions from the outside World.    '  But Mrs. Hampton only curled her  pretty lips.  "That's all, nonsense," she said, with  a:derisive laiigh. "You only read.about  that sort of thing In books. In renl life  a marriage Is a very prosaic matter.  When we return to town and you go to  business. It will be different. I shall  entertain my friends then and shall  have plenty to amuse me."  And so to the hotel they went, and  after thnt Mrs. Hampton couldn't complain that she saw too much of'Iohn.  She became a great favorite with the  visitors thero and was always joining  in some expedition or the otlier, nnd It  was with n great sigh of relief from the  happy bridegroom that the holiday  came tonn'end.  How pleasant the little villa nt Norwood looked after those desolate rooms  at the hotel. Even JIrs. Hampton admired John's taste at the maimer In  which, they were furnished, and they  sat down to tea In the little dining  room for the first time together.  'John took up his evening paper as  was bis wont and scanned it through,  but raised his head suddenly nt what  sounded like a muffled sob.  ".Madeline." he said anxiously, "what  ,ls the matter, dear?" And he Jumped  up and went to hei* side, wheieupou  the distressed one lifted a face rippling  Avith laughter.  "Ob.   John,  dear  John,"   she  snld.  "Tell me. did you enjoy your honeymoon very much, dear?"  John hadn't, but he didn't say so. He  COMING RAIN.

One dny, going into the country for the  eajee of the fresh nir nnd to enjoy himself  with rural dninties nt a littlo wnyside  tayern, there happened to be detailed to  wnit uponihim a beautiful young country  girl so sphrltlingly: beautiful that he snid  to himself: "She has diamond eyes and  ruby lips und teeth of pearls. She is  mnde of jewels."  Then there came into his mind the  thought thnt she,wns a jewel herself well  worth the winning :nud wearing. Still  ���he wns but n poor girl who earned her  bread as handmaid at nn. inn, and ho  went his wny without doing moro thnn to  look nt her. But he came again, and this  time threw her n kiss, and again and  this time the kiss Was on her lips, and the  third time he said to himself thnt nt last  he had found the wonihn he desired, and  he wooed and married her and took her  home with him dressed in splendid garments, with silken shoes upon her feel  that had so often followed the kine in  wooden sabots.  For a little while the jeweler's love  ruled his soul. He forgot his most precious jewels forhisfair Minn's sake, and  a happier pair of married lovers never  wandered together in. the moonlight or  vowed etorniil constancy by the winter  fiicsidc. It was not long, however. In a  year the jeweler had gone hack to his old  habits. He spent hours in his workroom  watching the polishing of, some rare  stone. He would leave his Minn for  weeks together while he sought some  gem of which he had heard. He*would  sit and gloat over n great diamond, tin n-  ing it this way nud that that the light  might the better fall upon it, while she  tat unheeded.  Mina never reproached him with this  change; but she giew sad nnd often wept  ���when no one observed her.  /The husband never noticed it.   His love  of jewels had'grown to be a monomania  with him.    He bad not the usual desire  of craftmen for fame or for wealth.   He  had become n miser, who hoarded gem*,  instead of gold.

Piece by piece the old!  furniture of his house, its pictures nud its  ornaments were sold, .the money converted into ({ems. But it was to Minn's grnvo,  that be bore them, and-there he burled,  them, with praycrsinnd tears, and the  black fiend that'had haunted his youth  ceased to appear to him, nor was it ever-  seen by any one lit his shoulder.  .

There he snt often the whole night -  through. A fatal disease had come upon  him. He knew its dread symptoms well,  hut he sought no physician. Death was  welcome to him. Only he prayed always  for some token that Mina had; forgiveu  him. His hair was white as 'blenched  linen. He had the uspeet of n very n.ftci-  man, though he was not ically old.  Grief and remorse aiid terror of the fiend '  had made him what he was, and now he  was poor^-so poor that he coiilil.not buy  the smallest gem to buiy in his murdered  wife's grave.

Assuredly it appealed to heaven's mercy, for'as the clock to n tower hnid by  struck midnight n strange thing happened. The waves, never so high befoie, began to leap up and wash the floor of the-  old balcony. They ���nero white in tbe  moonlight���white ns vool���and they looked, to bim sometimes like, the faces and'  bands and arms of sea spirits, so that im  spite of himself he stretched out his own.  hands to touch tliem. and, ginspiug something tlint melted between bis fingers,  still held fast a simill hard substauce.  which, as be opened hid palm, glowed like1  a coal of; fire.    A cnndle stood upon the hearth within.  Trembling and overn helmed with superstitious terror, he arose ami staggered toward it nnd saw. that what he held, was ai  great ruby, the veij stoue that he had'  laid in Minn's palm so long ago, the  gem of priceless value for the possession.-'  of which he bad vied with kings.  An hour later the moon nt l.cr setting^  looked on him as he tottered over the'  road to the graveyard nnd knelt nt last*  beside"-M ina's grave.  There, with a little knife he earned; he'  dug a hole and bmied the ruby n bacdJo.-  depth deep, close against the white stoni?  on which her name was written, and  with the effort Ins strength forsook him.  He knew that the supreme moment was  at hand,  "Minn, Mina!" berried. "Murdered angel, intercede; for me 'with heaven!"  And suddenly all nbout and above the  grave began to glow with a clear light  like thnt of jewels, and in the midst he  snw the figure of an angel who bore his  wife's face holdiug out her arms toward  him.
