'  WORiKMBN'S_OLUB :   CHRIS  FOLEY  RETURNS.  Chris, Foley lias just returned from  the east, where he has been engaged  for the post eight months in the preparation of the voluminous report just  submitted to the government on    the  Immigration of the Oriental, Chinaman  and Jap, says the'Rossland World.  .'He says that the feeling in the east  on this important question to, the west  is one of^ utter indifference.   Two ex-  1 ceptlons, both iropotrant, may be; noted  to this, the one being a. feeling inclined  In  favor ;of immigration  among    the  clergy, and one totally opposite- prevailing among the laboring classes.  The  business    men   as: a  rule   look  rather favorably upon the Immigration  oil the grounds that cheap labor is ne  ccssary, to develop    the   resources of  Canada. ' Their  leellng-  is   one   sided.  They practically 'say   "let us  produce  cheaply and  the market we caii'find  later."    They do not seem to be able  to. realize that the Jap and, the .Chinaman,   not  being    a consumer  to any  great extent, and being;limited by his  low, wager 16 a small customer,'' under  the very best of circumstances, is not  able to form n maiket for the goods  thus cheaply produced, alternate periods of over production and depression  must  therefore, necessarily  result  unless markets can be found outside,the  Dominion.  With regard  lo  the probable action  to be taken, by the Dominion government, Mr,'Foley is of the opinion .that  measures will-be introduced whichwill  have' the effect of excluding the Chinaman.'    With   regard   to  the  Jap,  tliis,  s-r.ys Air. Foley, is on a somewhat different ;basis, and action will no doubt  depend upon the results of the colnnl.il  premiers'.-;conference, in  London  next  June,  and Is .doubtless pending    upon  clauses in the treaty,.,between    Great  Britain and Japan,    lately, concluded,  and in which thereseenis to have been  included a reference, to Canada In   its  relations' with ; the  empire   In general  and with the Far. East in particular. In  the meantime the Japrtne.se central .government-.does'nol  object to the Natal  act, as It xloes not expressly and   by  name' exclude the Jap  as  an  inferior  being, and, moreover, that government  has recognized the delicate nature of  the relations lexisling, and is prohibiting emigration froni Japan to Canada.  tion the figures nre 330 bricks  per man  per day, on the other hand otlier contractors In  the same,; district  have In  lhelr employ men  who lay 500 to 70C  bricks,    ln the United States a man's  average per man 'per day la from 2,00'  bricks on the best-class work���say, private residences���and tills Includes face  brick as well as common, to 2,500 and  even 2,700, Including face and common,  on other structures.     It; may   seem  strange to the people of this country,  but lt is a fact, that British bricklayers who go to America work side by  side there with American bricklayers  nnd  equal  their  average.    Finally,  I  will   say   with regard to union men,  that if our work has been rapidly executed, it has been greatly due to the  ijiterest that has been taken by the representatives of the ".union"in."'secur-  lns for us the best men that could be  obtained.

In place, and was  rung for the'flrst time on Friday evening. A nice concert was'held, when a  good many friends from Rossland wej'e  present. Refreshments' were served,  and Rev.

After the great strike  in  Australia of nine  years ago,   the  working man went into politics, and  cleaned up the political   atmosphere  very satisfactorily.    He   will, 'do the  same iri British Columbia.   Experience  lias  shown  that his  advent into the  political ring has not meant the unsettling .of conditions.   He has settled  them.    Strikes    are   practically    unknown.    He has not frightened away  capital.    On the contrary capital has  flowed  in  by  the  million during tlie  past decade.   He; has not weakened lils  country's credit.   Colonial stocks in the  .Antipodes stand higher to-day than under the old regime.   He has not increased wages, but he has. diminished prices  of land and of food and of clothingby  seeing that the railways did not unnecessarily heighten the prices of -commodities'''by   levying    just    ns   much  freight as "traffic would stand" and by  seeing that land grabbing.was no longer practiced by tho middleman capitalist.   Hence he lives cheaply, he houses  himself cheaply and gets about at little  comparative cost. He can afford to take  a less wage because that wage is in better proportion to the commodities and  necessaries of life than it is here.  party where it should be���on the top.  Unite all the reform interests and they  will elect members enough to hold the  balance of power in the legislature. Then  the country will be governed by the people.

The Phoenix miners'union will send two delegates, and the  carpenters' union and the socialist  Vague there   will unite on a delegate.  A meeting of the independent labor  jarty of Rossland was held-in that  city last night, when it was decided to  send a delegate.to the Kamloops; convention.  Sydney Harris has been selected by  the Fishermen's' union to represent  them at Kamloops. The Socialists of  this city willi.also be represented.  present:  '. The Pay&treak says: "The labor party  convention to be held in Kamloops next  month is a move in the proper direction. An effort should have been made  long ago to harmonise and consolidate  the labor, socialist, single tax and all  other elements of reform in B.

In   London,   it   Is   said,   when   the  thieves, want to ply their calling, they  assemble and two of them pretend to  engage. In a brawl,  while the rest of  the gang go to picking pockets.   Then  when n Kiitllclent linul has been mnde,  I the cry of "Police,", Is raised, and the  I gang scatters to meet again  In some  nearby cellar to divide Ihe spoils.   So It  is   with   the  political   purtles   in   this  country.   Every four yenrs they meet,  pretend to 'wrangle, get the crowd excited,   gut her; In  the  swag,  and  then  holler police,  disperse  the.   multitude,  '���nil divide the loot.

My experience in  connect ion  with  the successful  handling  of   British  workmen    In    Great  Britain Is:    First, the men must satisfy, themselves that thoy are to be pnld  gi-.od wages; second, the man who has  general charge of the work must understand hi��  business  and  have   his  vrork done in his own way, in his own  time, and-  by   his   own methods.

For such a run the.average,time, Including stops, is a fraction  over -IO miles an hour.;  To make this  through  time, however, a speed of 65  miles an hour will have, to be maintained over   certain' sections of: the line.  The feasibility of the plan is said to  have  been, proved  last    summer    by  trial runs over, different portions of the  road covering all but about 800 miles of  the__dlstnnc_e. _A_large_amount_of_road  work has been done'.recently, and Improvements are still in progress to get  the track in  conditions  to  stand, the  high speed   of   the heavy trains.

Washington, -Murcli -.���A familiar  illustration from tlie barnyard i.s ein-  liloyed in this discoiirsu by I'i'. Tul-  iniigo to show the comfort und protection thnt heaven ull'iirds to all  trusting souls. The text, is Matthew  xxiii, -17, "tlVjjirus n hen gatlieretli  lier cliiclceus under her wings, nud ye  Would Hot."  Jerusalem  was  in  sight as Christ  - canic.lo the crest of Mount Olivet, a  height of 700 feet. Tlie splendors of  the  religious  capital   of  the      whole  j earth irradiated llie landscape There  is the temple. Yonder i.s tlie king's  palace. Spread out before his eyes  nre the pomp, the wealth, the ufiek-  edness and tlie coming destruction of  Jerusalem, and'he'bursts-into tears  <it the thought of the obduracy pf a  place that he would gladly have  saved and apostrophizes, saying, '-'0  '.-.Jerusalem, .Jerusalem, how often  would I have gathered thy children  together, even us a hen gnthereth her  chickens .under her wings, and yo  Would not!"  Why did Christ select hen and  ���chickens as a simile? Next to the  appositene.ss of the comparison, I  think it was lo help all public teachers in the mailer of illustration : to  get clown off their stilts and use  comparisons that all can understand.  The Plainest bird on earth' is the  barnyard fowl. Its only adornments  tne the red comb in its liend-dress  and the wattles under the throat. 11  has no grandeur of genealogy.       All  ;   wc know is that its ancestors,   caiiie  - .from .India,  some of them from  ; a  '.'"'height'of 4,000 feet on the sides'-"'of  ���the Himalayas,, It has no pretension  ���of nest like tho eagle's eyrie. It lias  ���no lustre of plumage like the gold-  ifinch. Possessing nmitomy that nl-  ilows flight, yet about the last thing  it wants to do is to lly, and in retreat uses foot almost as much as  wing.

The 'reason that society' and  the church nnd Ihu world are so full  of failures, so full of loafers, so full  of dcadbcats is because people "'��� are  not wise enough to tnke the   lesson  which any     hen would tench     them  that if  tliey  would. Unci  for      themselves and for those dependent upon  Jlhom    anything ���-'worth having they  ���must scratch  for  It. .Solomon   said,  "Go to the ant, thou sluggnrd."      1  .say, go    to the hen, tlioii sluggard.  In the Old Testament Cod compares  himself lo an eagle stirring up     lier'  'nest, and in the New Testament   the  Holy Spirit i.s compared t0 a     des-  cendin;; dove, but Christ in a sermon  ithat fcgiin wilh cutting sarcasm for  hypocules and eiid.s with the    paroxysm of pathos in Hie tcxl compares  himself lo a hen.  One t).:y    in the country we     saw  :' sudden consternation in the behavior  of old iloinitiick.   ��hy llie hen .should  be so disturbed wo could not uiider-  .   stand.   Wo looked about to see if   a  '' neighbor's     dog were invading     tho  ' Form.   Wc looked up to see     if     a  sloniicloiul were hovering. Wo could  see     nothing    on the ground     that  could terrorize, and we could sec nothing in the air to ruffle the feathers  of the hen, but the loud, wild, affrighted cluck whicli liroiight nil l'er  brood at full run under her foalhers  mnde us look again iiround "nd  above us. when we saw {hut high up  and far nway lliei'e wus a rapacious  bird wheeling round and round and  down nnd down, ami, not seeing lis  as we -stood in.Jhc shadow, jt canie  nearer and lower until we saw ils  lienU wus curved from base to tip  and il. luul two Humes of lire for eyes  iiiii! it- was n hawk. Bin. nil the  chickens were under old Domini'A's  wing?,, am! eillnr 1 he bird of prey  caught a glimpse of us or. not nble  lo Iind tlie liroid huddled under wing  darted  buck  into   ihL. clouds. So  Christ calls' with great eariiMtiiess  to all the young. Why, what is the  nintiei''-' H is bright siinln.lit, . and  there can Ue no danger. Health is  theirs. A good home is 'heirs. Plenty of food is theirs, Prospect of long  life i.s theirs. Hut Christ continues  to call', calls Willi more -emphasis and  urges haste and snys not a second  ought to lie lost. Oh', do tell 119  wliu 1, is the mutter. Ah. now 1 see;  there nre hawks of temptation in Hie  nil',, tliere are vultures wheeling for  their prey, there-nro beaks of death  ready to plunge, there are clnws of  allurement' ready to clutch. Now I  see the peril. Now 1 understand the  urgency. Now 1 see the only safety.  Would that Christ might this day  lake our sons und daughters into his  ���shelter "as a hen gatlieretli her  chickens under her wing."  Fathers, mothers, older n brothers  and Misters und Siihbulli school |  teachers,' be quick and earnest "und  prayerful and importunate and get  the chickens under wing- Jiay tlio  Sabbath schools of--America,- and  Great Britain Within the next threo  niontlis sweep ail tlieir scholars iiito  the kingdom. Whom they lmve now  under charge is'.uncurtain. Concerning that scrawny, puny child that  lay in the cradle niiiuy years ago,  tlio father dead, many remarked,  "What a mercy if the I-ord would  take the child!" And Ihe mother  really thought sii too. Bul^'hat a  good thing -that God spared���than  child, for it'became world renowned  in 'Christian literature and one of  God's most illustrious servants ���  John Todd. Remember, your children will remain..children'only..u little  while. Wlint you do for them as  children, you must? do ruiickly or never do it at all- "Why have you never  written a book?" said some one to a  talented .woman. She replied: "I rah  writing two and have been engaged  on one work ten years and on the  other five years���my two'1 children.  Tliey are my life Work."  But wo all need the protecting  wing. If you had known when you  entered upon manhood or womanhood what was ahead of you,would  you have dared to -.'undertake. ','', life?  Mow much have you been through?  With ''most:." life has been "a. disappointment.. ,Tliey tell me so. X They  have not attained that whicli. they  expected to attain. They have not  had the physical and mental vigor  they expected or they have met wilh  rebuffs whicli-they did not anticipate.  You aro not (it forty or.fifty or sixty or sevenly!or eighty years,of age  wliere yoii thought you would 'be.  I do not know anyone except myself  10 whom life has, been njluxppy' surprise. 1 never-expected aiiy thing, and  so,when anything came in the shape  of human favor or j comfortable position or widcning-tield of Work it was  to uie n surprise. -1 was toldin 'the  theological seminary by some of. my  fellow students that I iiovri- "w_uld  get anybody to hear. 1110 preach . unr  less ��� I changed my style,. so thai:  when 1 found Hint soniO; people did  come to hear nie it was a. .nappy  surprise. -." But 'most: people, accord-,  ing-to-'their own .statement,'���; have  found life -a disappointment. Indeed,,  we all. need shelter from its tempests.  About .3 o'clock on a hot August  afternoon you lnxvc: heard, a .rumble  that you:,, first; took for,;a: wagon  crossing., a ... bridge, but afterward  there was a .-louder:rumbling, and  you said, "Why, that' is thunder!"  And, sure enough, 'the clouds, wore  being convoked for a full diapason.  A whole park of artillery went rolling down . the. heavens, and tho  blinds of. the'wiu'dows in the . -cily  were.closed.- But the sounds '-'"above  were not more certain . than . the  sounds beneath. The cattle came to  the bars; and moaned for thoiii to be  let down ������that;'tbey might '���'���. conic  home to shot ter, nnd the fowl, whether dark llriihnia or Hamburg' or  Leghorn or Dominick, began- to call  toils young, "Cluck, cluck, cluck!"  and take them under tho Wagon  house or shed and had them all hid  under the (.soft feathers by tlie lime  Hint ; the first: plush of rain struck  .tlio'=.rilof.-tSo^lherc..aro_sudden.. tern-  penis., for our souls, and, oh, how  dark it guts,; and'threatening clouds  of bankruptcy- or sickness or peise-  'ciition or 'bereavement gather and  thicken and hlacken, and some  run for shelter to a bank,  lint it is. poor shelter, and others  run lo friendly advisors, and they  fail to help, others My nowhere simply because they,know not Wliere to  go, and they perish in tho blast, but  others hear a divine Call saying,  "Como, for all things are now ready." "Tlie spirit nnd the brido say  come.'" And while tho heavens are  thundering terror the divine voice  proffers mercy, nnd the houT' comes  under the brooding care of tho Almighty "as a hen gathcrelh hor  chickens under her wing." ,  . Tho wings of my text suggest  wiii'mlTi, and Hint is what most folks  want. The fact is Hint this Is a  cold world whether you lake it literally of figuratively. Wo have a big  fireplace culled thn sun, 'nnd-it has 11  very hot lire, und the stokers keep  the coals well stirred up, but much  of the year we cannot gel neai' enough to this fireplace to get warmed.

If llvey  did, ihey have nf right lo puss on the  case. The public should knoxv this, and  in order lo pi-oliel itself the council  houlci enlighten thi- public upon this  ..Hint at  the o.irlicsi  opportunity.  Por u. long time Vancouver has been  cursed xvith city counoils xvhich. contained men of such miserable natures  that tliey are humiliating to the fair  name of Vancouver. At tho last meeting, of this body, another exhibition of  tho kind was given. We refer lo the  debate, which in reality should have  been settled in committee, on the question of giving txvo of the police oilieers  a. six weeks' leave or absence xvith ono  month's pay! Now, If these men have  served the city faithfully and well nnd  ���were entitled to holidays at all, then  Ihe    majority of the committee   were  ouite right in recommending that they  . x  be given a month's pay.    As for    the  question ot hoxv they spent their holidays, it v.-as^iio business of anybody,  unless they intended working for somebody.else. Any well regulated business  institution xvill occasionally give- its  empolyees a holiday xvith pay, and the  city should lie a model employer in this  respect. But as w-e said in the begin  ging, miserable natures xvill protest and  tick and grunt, and xve- must realize  that you eannot make a silk purse- out  of a sow's ear.  lt has been suggested that a Provincial .irbltration committee h;1 appointed, representing capital, labor nnd  sivicly at large���say, six from each  section. It is hold, under the i-in'iini-  stances, that this .xvould be .is i !i"e< live  if not. more so, than xvould he .i i um-  pulsory aibiti-aliun act.  One thing tho adverse pinluhllion  vote in Manitoba dcinoiiMiiitcs, and  that is it is natural for hiiiivin.s to oppose coercion.

TIIE CIVIMOM.
'The only nbsenleci at Tuesday night's
meeting of the city council was Aid.
«Cook.
Hon., Jos. Martin, M.P.F., vx-rote intimating thnt/Iot 401, Nexv Wsetmlnster
district, xx-hich is noxv under the management of the government, could very
probably be vested in the city It' the
• city council vxould agree to its annexation. Tho Jotter was received and re-
feii-rod to a committee.
The report ot the spe cial meeting of
water committee blamed both the city
and the International Ice & Storage
company for ihe misplacement of the
water meter, causing it to record only
a small portion of the xvater consumed
by the company. The ieport recommended that tlio company pay $3 a
month for every month since the motor
was moved, or 5--10 in all.
Aid. Wood did not think a serious
matter of this kind should ho passed
.over so lightly. The committee only
held Its meeting In the aftei 1 oon, uml
he did not think that v\.is\tiine enouqh.
Dining the 1-' days the secret meter
was on it was found that 31,000 feet
of water had'boon usod, which \xas
worth $34. He contended that at this
rata to xvas not sulliclent. Tho coni-
I-.any's bill for T2 months averaged ?11
ii month..' "There- was no doubt in the
vorld-but thnt tlie company used the
water, knowing that it was using it
, wrongfully," said the speaker. He did
not believe In secret meetings of tho
-committee, iind therefore piotested
against tho ieport being' adopted this
wise. Ho did nol vvliih to hamper tho
■company,  "but,   to put It plainly, ihe
• city was wilfully robbed," added Aid.
Wood.   Why xvas not the city solicitor
-advised to report on the matter?
Aid. Foreman did not think Aid.
. ,Wood knexy-what ho vvas talking about.
The matter was not as bad as the Province newspaper represented it. He then
reviewed the circumstances at length.
It xvns Impossible to get at what ain-
-ount of water was used.
Aid. Urown asked If it xvas true, that
tho amount of wnter used was as Aid.
Wood stated. If so, Aid. Foreman
.fought shy of this point.
Aid. Wocd—"I knexv about this matter befoie, and followed it up, and the
;Statemenl I make Is correct."   Fourteen dollars a month won't pay for the
water ust-d.   Take the Metropole hotel,
for instance, where an elevator is operated; it pays over $20.   On the other
band the institution in question   depends almost entirely on water to run
it.    Five  dollars a. month  were    too
-1 .'Utry.  The amount should be in round
figures,  sa>,   SflOO  a  month,   or from
'   $4,S00  to  $3,000,   and    the    committee
wants   to   let   the  company   off with
:$240.  "I am strongly opposed to passing
this report.   The committee tries to be
judge and jury in this" case,"  added
.Aid. Wood. -

Aid.   Wylie,—The ,  water    passing

fire department with splints.
Aid. Wylie—I don't know a horse
lrcm a coxv. 1 knoxv nothing about the
horses. The veterinary surgeon said
thoy xvere i erfectly sound.
Aid. Brcwn said ho knexv something
about horses. He knew the head fiom
the tail. The commute acted on Lu-
Hart's advice. I don't knoxv whether
We should have called in Aid. Foreman
lor consul tu tlon or not.
Aid. Brown—Regarding the matter of
the police going on a prospecting tour
to Bulkley Valley, at tho city s expense,
I think it wrong of any olliceis of the
city, especially a policeman, to be paid
tor doing nothing. lt wouldn't sur-
1 rise mo the next thing they asked vxas
six months' leave of absence, vvith
pay. Tho i.iilef K.iid he did not have ,i
sufficient number of men, yot he did
not object lo these men going awny.
Aid. MiOueen s'lld he vvas very particular aboui asking the veteitnary le-
gardlng splints. He said the "horses
xx civ peifectly sound, with the exception ol splints, which ban in? accidents,
woulil not inti-rftio with their servie-o-
ablt-nestf.." '.'eg.i'.-iKn? the leave of a'o-

Brown did not agree xvith this, hut ha
did, int move an amendment, added
Alii.   .McQueen.   *
Aid. Bethune xx-ns opposed to the police having holidays, xvith pay.
Ald^ Woo.d hind the- olllecis did nol
nsk lor leave of Absence with pay. but
only ior leave of absence, lie agreed
with Aid. M<Qr.c-en that they were entitled to Mime consideration for faithful services. >
- Alii. .Wylii- said that an oflicci- had
said to him in (he corridor that he
hoped the committee could 'see its way
clear to give the salary. He did not
care it the policemen quit; their places
could easily be filled.
Aid. "1 Srdxxii"moved "that*^the whole
clause be struck out.    '
Aid. Wood und Wilson moved tho adoption of the ieport.
For—McQueen, Blackmore, McGuigan.   Wood,' Wilson—5.

Aid. Wylie moved the adoption of the
Tollce committee's report, excepting the
\ "Clause granting officers Davies and Mcintosh leave of absence for fix weeks,
I'with the understanding that-they be
[ .saild for one month.--'
Aid. Foreman objected' io- the' pro-
Aid. McGuigan, asked if it was true
that a. firm ol" tailors in the city were
running a lottery.
Chief North—A complaint had come
in, but the city solicitor advised him
to go to Mr. McPherson to sign tho information, lt vvas a question vxhether
it was si lottery or not. -

skilled men xvho belong to unions, bo-
cause they have Intelligence vnough to
see that If organization is helpful to
capitalists und professional men It Is
nlso good for the wage-worker.
The man xvho Indulges In tho practice or criticising the actions of men
who take an active part in "the affairs
ot the labor movement has a. ' cinch"

ncvW does anything other than criticise.

ever does—that the.ballot box is the

probably for this reason that it, In

Folloxving is the circular-letter ad
dressed to the various labor and i-e-
form organizations of tlie province:
Folloxving circular-letter wne received' from the oflice of the District
Association, No. 6, W. F. of Miners:
Greeting,—The question of pollt
leal action, being token on tlie part of
organized labor with a vieiv to securing
a more substantial and satisfactory representation of labor Interests, In the
legislative assembly of our province,
and the parliament of Canada, ls a principle that has received careful consideration an dthorougli discussion at tho
hands of local unions affiliated with
our district association. The decision
has been arrived nt, that before any
such step »o important In its nature,
and so far leaching in Its effect, can
be tnlien with nnydegrce of confidence
and propriety, it ls absolutely essential
that the various labor unions and reform organizations throughout the province, should be by some means
brought together dn the closest possible
touch, both in sentiment and^action. lt
is self evident that the only effective
nit. '!<; vie <mji adopt, in order to ascertain ihe views of those interested, and
to reach sound' conclusions upon the
subject, is through the medium of a
General Provincial Convention,
at some suitable and centrally located
point. The executive ofllcers of Wiis
association have received instructions
from tlie local unions affiliated therewith, to assume the inltiatix-e in this
matter, and WIS THEREFORE DO
HHB'KBY ISSUE A CALL FOR A
CONVENTION (FOR POLITICAL.
PURPOSES) OF DELEGATES FRO Ml
ALL TRADES AND LABOR UNIONS,
SINGLE TAX ASSOCIATIONS, SO-
SIAL1ST BODIES AND OTHER REFORM ORGANIZATIONS IN THE
PROVINCE whose aim is to improve
the social condition of the people of
Canada by the ballot. SAID CONVENTION WILL BE HELD AT
KAMLOOPS,- B. C, AND WILL BE
CALLED TO ORDER AT 10 A. M. ON
MONDAY, APRIL «, 1002.
The Ba.sis of Representation
xvill be as follows: Central bodies, such
tis trades ajid labor councils, district
or provincial 'associations of, single tax,
socialist labor, or other reform bodies,
composed of 100 delegates or less, shall
be entitledtto two delegates, and oiie
additional delegate for each additional
majority fractional part thereof. Subordinate or local trades and labor
unions, tingle tax, socialist or other reform organizations xvith a membership
of 100 members or less, shall be entitled to one delegate, and one addir
tlonal delegate for each additional majority fractional part thereof. Each
delegate shall be entitled to, one vote
in the convention, and in no case shall
any delegate have the right, or lie allowed to vote any proxy votes. Two or
uiore organizations entitled to'representation at tliis convention, whose aggregate mem! ership does not exrood
100 members, may combine together
and havpthc right to be represented by
one delegate xx-ho shall ha,ve> but one
vote. Delegates must exercise care and
see that their credentials are properly
dr.iwn up, and in such manner as to
show- the membership of the organization or organizations they represent.
Objects of the Convention:
1. To unite and harmonize all labor
organizations and reform bodies in the
province together for purposes of political action. . >'
2. To adopt a provincial platfoim
and promulgate a policy for the guidance of organized la'bor and other le-
form bodies' in future political campaigns.
3. To do any or all other things whicn
jn_the_judgment-Of-the convention-will
in any way protect or promote the interests of those represented.
Reduced .Railway Rates.
By special arrangement with the C.
P. R. company we have been able to
secure tlie following^ reduced rates fo.-
the return trip. If fifteen delegates attend ithe convention, ONE AND ONE-
THIRD (1 1-3) FARE will be charged
for the round trip. If fifty delegates
or more are-ln attendance a SINGLE
FARE will be allowed for the round
trip. -Delegates must not fail to take a
receipt from the local ticket agent of
the C. P. R. company, xx-hen leaving
their Glomes to attend the convention
at Kamloops, Jt. C. If delegates fall
to present this receipt to the secretary
of the convention they are liable to lose
the benefits of the special rates. We
have selected Kamloops on account nt
Its central location, in order that all
organizations might have an equal opportunity to be represented, and we
trust that this will be appreciated In
a practical manner, 1. e., that all organizations will send the full quota of
delegates to which they are entitled.
It is unnecessary for its to dwell at
any further length, upon, -the Importance of this convention tb organized
labor, and other reformers. We can
only add in conclusion, we trust that
every organization will assist ln every
way possible to make this convention
a success iu every particular, and that
its deliberations may result In the
adoption of a policy, which, when carried into practical effect, will produce
much benefit and bring prosperity nnd
happiness to the working people of our
beloved province.   Fraternally yours,
JAMES WILKS, President, Nelson.

SOCIALISM.
An old country writer has said that
u great di-al of the existing prejudice
against socialism arises from the want!
of a clem- definiion of it.    Tliere are
ixvo socialisms, cne of which aims at
state contiol of production and distribution and tlie other which aims   at
• abolition of the state itself and the
establishment of communism.    A cen-
ii allied system of beaurcratic control
is naturally dreaded by thinkers like
Heibort  Spencer,  who says    lhat the
Advent of scrtalltm will be the greatest disaster iho world has ever knoxvn,"
and  that it  xxill end m military despotism.   Tlio socialism  which hoi rifles
Mr.  Spencer is no doubt the Marxian
form ol Ii based upon pure materialism, and lo he brought about, accord
in? to Marx himself, by revolution. But
the tact that the tides oi man's affalis
aie controlled by other tliun economii
forces   must  not be  discarded.    Reli
gion,  for    insi.incp, is .in independent
foice and  not.   as  the  Marxians  contend, a product ol economic conditions.
He   governs   best   who  governs   least,
.-ud sane socialism aims at gradually
tu-m^lng   about  a  state of society in
Vihich the stain xx-ould exercise as lit-
ilo contiol as i.csslblc- and leally le-
pic-cnt ii lcdeiation of communes, each
i-i.iiii.ying its oxxn affairs.   Under such
a system land and tools would go to
thoso best .-.ble to use them, and individual libeitj   v.ould bo secured,   not
impel illed.    Both  the   state socialists
and     the   comnui'iisl    socialists    are
agiecd that rent.  Interest,  and profit
should go to the community and not to
Individuals: and,the. problem we have
to solve is'in what way can we best
get rid of these monopolies by which
a fexv individuals eniic-h themselves at
the expense of the many.   The government scandals occuring almost every
day aio not calculated to inspire public
confidence in bcaurocrntic government.
On tin- other hand, worse scandals aro
eicatod under tho capitalistic system,
xxhich    moreover   tends  to make the
vx'orkei a slave in all but name.   Under
cluc-ioiil communism, or the co-operative commonwealth, the worker would
enjoy greater freedom than under present Gondii ions, where he is only free
te choose between the alternatives of
accepting the monopolists'   terms    or
starving.    Wo do not share Mr. Herbert  Spencers'  tear  that even  under
state    socialism,   military    despotism
v ould be established.   The socialist or
reform piuty all the world over is the
pettco party, or rather should be. There
is, therefore, no leason why the inde-
lcndcnt labor i arty, socialists, slngle-
taxeis and others, should not co-oper-
nte, us all for the most part aio agreed
upon an extended application   of   the
piinciple of municipal   socialism.     In
what direction has advanced thought
uavelled   towards  civil    or    religious
fieedom.   where socialism  is not  pre-
pai.ecl to go still further?   As for nilli-
tn ry despotism^iy.ve_vv_e_not_nIready

"I wonder if It idealizes lier';"  AVe stand ln-side the statue uf tins famous woman, Miirgiirvt of New Orloiins,  and, nfter tlio manner nl strangers, conjecture on wlint we for tlio first time see.  "Not at nil," a voice answers iu the  soft southern tongue.   "It looks just like  her."  "Ah, thank ynu.   You live hereV"  "I was born here.   This is my home."  "You were hero tditring the war  ntul  yellow fever and everything?    Ami was  Hon Butler so dreadful?   Anil liave you  soon Cubic?"' ,-,       '  A nod answers each one of my youus  'companion's impetuous queries.  "How delightful!',' concludes my friend,  but the lady shakes her lieail and tups lier  fan lightly on the! girl's soft cheek ani!  says musingly: "It diil.:hot seem as if 1  would live through it; but 1 have, nnd  now conies one wlio calls my trials 'delightful.'   How cruel!"  "Ah, pardon! Kut I was'.thinking of  tlint cliai'ining inuii who wrote tiio doli-  - clous-'Mine.. Dolpliiuc.' 1 wns thinking  bow perfectly lovely-it must,lie to live  hero and know him���anil then to live in a  i, city that lias had such/a history���it is so  romantic. And can you tell us anything  ' about.Margaret?"    , <  "This little,space���'Margaret place.' it  is called���it is a pleasant .spot to rest in."  With" this invitation, given more in  looks than-in words, we seated ourselves  near our new acquaintance on tlie settees  -,- in tlio littic park. Tlie perfume of March  roses -overhang the city; wc forget in its  delieiousiicss tlie signs of decay that in  portions of that quaint old town imparts  a pensive melancholy to its' beauty.- Near'  by us in the green grass is a pool set  about with n low border-of cactus; "a  mimic fort, .with nil its bristling thorn  guns out, and its blossom flouting from  tlio ramparts, which nre guarding from  such fierceness only n lazy fleet of water  lilies, under tlie shade of which tliero Is u  whirl of -goldfish. A stone footbridge  crosses the pool and spans' the., river' of  cactuses. It is a very odd niul tasteful  device, tins pool, and tlio littlo purls in  which it is placed is unique- in its way.  Tliere is nothing ovcrdoue, neither neglected. It is a well kept, refreshing, simple setting for tlio statue itself.  "Sue was a working woman���a-ssKvant  hero,   Wlien I first'remember her Twas  living near here, and she was taking euro  'of the cows in a stable tlint stood almost  on tlio very spot where her statue stands  now.   She was working then for the sisters of the nsyluni.    She fed nnd milked  tlielr cows nnd sold milk in n cart about  the city. She was a strange looking person  i.:���remarkable in her-appearance....I think  now as I recall, her she had a broad Tore-.  ...head,   serious  eyes,   n   pleasant/; broad  smile, a rather short, stout figure.   I,do  not suppose sho over in her life wore any  ;  dross let tor than n guinea blue calico; she  :.' always wore heavy shoes arid.'a black'  straw bouuet trimmed:with a neat band  ot black over the top. From my residence  "I could.see;her many tinies a day while  she Was at her: stable, 'work or coining  .. lackiand forth with her milk, cans,������:':���.���  ,��-,    "What.vvns her,name?   Her name was  , Margaret Hauggcry; she hnd been married anil at thnt time was a widow.   Her  i'   husbnnd and little child died just',ifter  ,ske enmeto New. Or!eaiis;so vve learned  after she became'famous.'; She Was alono  - nnd poor in a strange country and wont  to work in the stables for a living.. Some?  .: low"everybody liked Margaret; iior smile  was sweet and hor words shrewd.   The  children called  her Margaret, and she  ;,:  knew their names  and  answered their  salutntions along the street ns she drove  . by in tho milk cart. . .::;;  "After some yenrs .Margaret had saved  ;' enough to.buy a bit of ground that had  on it a small bakery.   The place was sold  for- a "trifle; but. now. Margaret .was in  royal; trim--n landowner nnd a ntanutac-  : -turer; for she opened the shop and began  ;bread nnd pie making for the.neighbors.  '/ .Presently there: was "a largo, bakery built;  soon'.brerid carts-vvere running over;the  / city bearing the words .'Margaret's Bak-  :-ery.'���'���;It became'"tne;-'fashion to buy.,.at  ���:'. Margaret's place.   During vvnr, pestilence  ���'.'���; and: disaster Margaret's fires, wore never  :   out,-arid the delicious rills'-kept up tlieir  weight1 and quality, no:mntter what else  V: in, ;life failed, i Then she began running  '���her free bread cartsduring the fever pnn-  ,ic; No one wont hungry, who was Within  '.sound, tif her cart wheels.    Froni'thnt  ��� time on no1 one need go hungry, in: Now  r, Orleans���those too poor to buy-were given  a loaf fresh nnd white as the best! and it  was - given heartily.: with a 'God ;��� bring |  '���' thee better times!'   There wns no distiuc-  ' tion in Margaret's favors.   She gave to  white nnd black, of any church or none.  ���   'Are you hungry?', that is.iill thnt was  ^necessary i=^Herciisibrcad;=tnke^Jtwitli.  God's blessing.1  than the t' tliest ninu ln the history of the  state, nnd of the sympathy and disceru-  liieiit of ilie needs of the poor the lmlf  conlil never lie told. She spent nothing  on herself. A clean blue calico, stunt  shoes, a black straw bonnet, n knitted  jacket cr shoulder shawl, an iron bedstead in a room without even a rocking  chair and overlooking the bnkesliop, sufficed for her. She had no time to enjoy  real luxuries. As long ns there wns a  weeping child or a friendless ;woman,  in the city what time had she to fold  her arms in h rucking elmir? While tliero  were uiiliuriod, colludes* forms cou'.d she  adorn lier home ot the living? And so it  happened that to tlio end uf life Mnrgaret spent neither time, cure nor uurney  uu herself. Klio forget there was such.a  .mortal as Margaret.  "And when one day the news went  around thut Margaret wns dead the great  cityriirose nud put on niuiii'iiiug: the business' houses were closed; nil the employments nf the city stood still. The day of  the burial thousands of her little orphans  'followed her bier as mourners: every  cliui'i-li sent delegations of honor bearers;  the public school children joined in the  throng: tho houses weuc draped along the  line of march: all thu-bells in the city  tolled; civic and military joined in tlie  procession witli ecclesiastics; there never  wns here a fiir.'.'i'al like Miirgnret's.        '  "Afterwiuil it wns found that hor possessions had been so disposed that liad  dentil 'conic nt any moment the affairs'of  this life were well mid intelligently  wound up. There wore no personal ef-  feets of vnliie, but even, her few garments sho left to the poor, niul with' the  proceeds of her 'wise investments her  charities nre royally endowed.   ...  "This statue is tile gift nf the city, to  show in this public way the esteem in  which she is held. It is very liko Margaret. Tho motherly figure, seated with  .one arm encircling a 'standing child at  lier side; the iintrimiiicil- dress, coin-so  slioes, the little erocheii'd shawl nbout  her shoulders nro homely, but who would  riinngu thein for liner clothing?- Tlio  smooth hair, witli its old fashioned French  purling; the strong chin, the pleasant  mouth, the serious eyes���is there not  'Something "fascinating in the contradictions of llie face?

Lords suggested,  would ' not inspire any additional confidence in the Judicial Committee.   ':  The conference hold its first meeting on June 2G. On July <t Mr.  David Mills, who had been elected  chairman, forwards to"Mr. Chamberlain tlio following recommendations: v ,   ' .���  1. Appeals, should continuo to lie  from the colonics and from India to  His Majesty in Council.'  -. It.Wis' desirable that appointments to tho Judicial Committee  should bo from timo to time mado  in such numbers as may bo considered necessary from ono or moro  of the following:  (ni Tlio Dominion ol Canada and  Newfoundland. ��  (b) Tho Commonwealth ol Australia.  (c) Now Zealand.  (d) South Africa.    .  (c) Tho Crown" Colonics.  (1) India.   .;  3. A member so appointed should  vacate any judicial olllco which' ho  may.be. holding at the timo'.of his  appointment to tho Judicial Committee.  4. Tlio selection of such members  should not' be restricted to judges  and ox-judges.  5. Every such member should bo  appointed for lifo or for a; term o!  years. In the event of it being decided that such appointments.-'.to the  Judicial Committee should be mado  for a term of years, suitable pensions should bo provided for all  members who complete such term of  office, and tho term which may. L bo  decided upon should be sufficiently  long to be an inducement to properly qualified men to accept appointments to tho Judicial Committee. It  is considered that such a compura-j  ti veiy short term as seven yours  would not bo sufficient for that purpose. It is -'recommended- that tho  term should bo ono of at least fifteen years.  0. Although the question of  ary is not apparently one of  matters for the consideration  which the conference has been  somblod, it. is suggested that  salary to be paid should bo "sufficiently ample to induce men possessed of suitable qualifications to  accept .appointments- to the Judicial  Committee.  7. It is desirable that arrangements should bo innde for securing a  larger nttciidunce of Lords of Appeal  at sittings of the j Judicial Committee.  8. That, with the view to tho  avoidance of delay, the simplification of procedure and the .lessening  of costs, each colony should be /invited to suggest such alterations or  amendments as it may desire in tho  Orders in Council, restricting or re- '  gulating appeals from such colony  and tho.Gcncral Rules of rrnctice including those as to costs of appeal.  These recommendations are signed  by all-the delegates except Mr.-Emerson (Newfoundland) and Mr. Henry  Hodges (Australia) and Sir James  Prendcrgast (New Zealand).

"My first nttomiit nt niaklnp; a start
for myself was not successful," hiugh-
sd the attorney who -Is-'.well known in
the oily as a lending legal light. "When
I graduated from the law school, 1
hadn't the slightest Idea where to locate, so when I chanced to sec a news
Item to the effect that a smaH but
prosperous town In tho central part of
the state was in need of an attorney at
'law I looked upou'If as heaven,soilt
and'decided to go there at once." But
no sooner Jad 1 iaeUed up my shlnglo
than I llscovered that another young
lawyer had seen the same Item Iind
flint ho, too, lad looked upon the Information ns heing especially prepared for
his benefit and had opened an office in
the town, I realized that there would
not bo room for both of us in so small
a place, so I called a meeting to form
a community of Interests.
" 'Now,' said I,''you know as wellas
I do that there is ,-lot business enough
hero for both of us and that sooner or
later ono will have to quit andgo elsewhere. Such being the case.;-1 propose that vve enter Into an agreement
that the first one who succeeds;in getting a client shall have the field to
himself, the other sceUiug greener
pastures.'
"lie agreed to the plan, and wo drew
up and signed a paper to that effect.
"The.next morning I chanced to loolt
out of my olllco window nnd saw a
man deliberately .vytillc up to another
niiin and knock lilm;down. Realizing
that here was my chance, I seized my
hat and rushed out.
" "See here,' safd I to the aggressor.
'I saw you knock that man down without provocation.: and doubtless he will
have you arrested for it. Now, I am
an attorney, and If you will let me
lmve tbe case"— *
" 'I've got a lawyer,' he growled,
pointing to a doorway whore stood my
'grinning rival.
"I kept" my: part of the agreemeut
and left town. Years afterward I learned that the whole thlngvvas a put up

iho aggressive party $10 to knock down

The.Illinois Central railway is'about  to subsi(.ute a. system of telephones on  iis lines in place of the telegraph.

Fourteen  only of the modest: maiden.', unions then  stood up and joined hands "for bettor  or for woise," and sincci that time, 1S52,  the original fourteen stand ir. the same  old shoes, in the order in which they  plighted their fate. Then; huve been a  few deaths in the family, but no separations, no divorces; fifty years huve  passed and .the group has grown to over  six hundred, the membership of which  will'how .join' In happy jubilation over  this semi-centennial anniversary. The  organisation does, not need the consolations of old age to chocr and comfort  it. Like appetite, it grows on what it  feeds on.

A settlement has,  however, been effected at Blackpool and  St. Anne's, where a strike lusted over  12 months against a. proposed reduction of Id Tier hour, which', has been  compromised, the men submitting to  one-half that amount and some other  minor ' alterations In: their working  rules.    At'Maidstone, which bad lasted  about six weeks, has been settled by  arbitration. New branches has been  opened at Boulan City (W.A.), York,  and Boston (Jlass.).  About seven hundred miners have  been idle since march 7th at the Bertie  pit of the Le.wis Merthyr colliery,  Ithoiidda \ralley, owing to a.dispute re  shot-tiring.

Tlie Kniperor of Russia has sanctioned tlie decision of St. Petersburg to  conclude a loan of 40,000,000 roubles  ($20,000,000) for the purpose o[ carrying  out the inost imposing programme of  Improvements'ever.-undertaken by the  capital. When the 'amount of the loan  lias been added to the funds already in  liand .the city will be in a. position ,to instill ii, municipal telephone system,  build hospitals, orphanage's and schools  and construct throe handsome bridges  over the Neva.
