Dear Elr,���I duly received'your letter  {promising, the hearty  co-operation  of  your council ln our proposed effort to  ���bring the pressure of public opinion to  toearupon the responsible.heads of our  ,. great railway .systems -with a view of  preventing the.Increase and securing a  reduction of .the unnecessary traffic and  la'bor now being carried'on upon these  great transportation systems.' Will you  kindly express to your council for myself and for tl.e alliance lt Is my honoi1  to  represent,  our hearty  appreciation  of your offered aid'   I have noted the  suggestion of some of the Trades and  Labor councils  that,  while something  may be gained  by such an"eftort ns  -we propose, yet no effective remedy will  lie found short of- public  ownership,  ���wbleh would  eliminate    the  powerful  motive to Sabbath desecration, namely,  the desire for dividends felt alike by  stockholders and managers; and I wish  to say that many of the leaders in our  movement hold this rvlew strongly, my-  ���elf among the number, and that It is  our habit, as opportunity affords, to let  our voice be heard for whatever lt is  t .  ���worth, towards  the" spreading of this  view,  which,' we   believe,  Is,,growing  1 rapidly in the faivor of the Canadian  public.   1 have found the gathering of  the necessary Information In connection  r'       ' -t  t  i with our..proposed' effort a: slower process than I had reckoned, hence lt will'  probably be early autumn before I will  be ready to submit our detailed plans  ior your approval.and co-operation. As  lo the new committee appointed, that  ln connection with the "Arbitration Act"  referred  to your/committee,  that the  aaid act dc-uls directly with .all railway  einployocu.

Any Other business on hand  will.be duly handed 1 over''to incoming  committee on   Wednesday, July 23rd.

R. machinists, at a recent  meeting held In Winnipeg, Voted a  day's pay each month' from every man  on the Western and Pacific' divisions  of the big road, to assist the striking  machinists on tho Canadian Northern  Railway. A rough estimate/of .'the. full  amount from both the Western and  Pacific divisions, is between $1,500 and  $1,800. It1 Is ..understood, that; the machinists of the eastern divisions are  also assisting the strikers.  dian Northern system, written by responsible men In the service, state that  thc maintenancc-of-way men are as a  unit In coming out' and standing by  their comrades ln demanding a schsj-  ule and a contract.

THE PRESIDENT SPEAKS; '���  President Lamrick: thanked the council for the votes it had honored him  withy by again returning him to the  presidency of the council; The council  bad made good progress during the past  six months."

The  engineering  department of the  Canadian Pacific railway is at present  undergoing a  process of  re-organiza  tion.     Hitherto  there'���-.have been���:two  departments, one. Of maintenance and  another   of construction.   The"'former  was originally under the supervision of  P. A, Peterson, H. Inst., C. E., but upon his recent indisposition; was taken  ever by H. E. Vautelet, who was given  the title of acting.- chief engineer/and  Mr, Peterson' that of consulting engineer. X The department-of construction  j was;under the charge of Mr.' Tyc, who  had a 'large staff and drawing office.  Now it appears: the two departments  are to be merged into one, all under  the immediate    supervision of E.  H.  McHenry,   the   new  englneer-ln-chief,  and .there will be 'but one .drawing' of  fice.   The  most urgent  work the de  partment will be engaged ln for some  time Is the ..imporvement In; the' alignment /and gradient of the 'main  line,  the relaying with heavy Tails and the  substitution   of    steel   for  wood    ln  bridges and. trestles. -When .this work  Is completed/by-the end ;of next year,  it is anticipated; the'.run*/to; the Pacific  will be cut down nearly'a*day.���Revel  stoke Herald.

Further, among the leaders of the  Central'Trades and LLatoor.Council'are  men. who have-no visible;means of support, and on every occasion these individuals go before public bodies to  speak in the name of organised labor  without making any distinction between thcir organisation and the Federated Trades and Labor Council, which  body/la absolutely opposed-to'them.  -The said Central Trades and La'bor  Council ls further an uncompromising  opponent of International unions and Its  representatives are actually trying to  break up International unions ln "Mon  treat. ~~   .  council.

It was pleasing to note  that all :��� unions ���were working In harmony, as was instanced in the late  strike, of 'the/freight-handlers, which  body had been offered' assistance from  other;unlons unsolicited.; The president  congratulated the newly-formed union  of teamsters as-being one of the largest unions, If not the largest, In the  city.' ;,The laundry, workers weie not  far'behind in their numbers.

"Within the last few days 14 Winnipeg  freight -.handlers'...ihave  been-  discharged   and   replaced   by   men from  Montreal.

Fivei'minutes'" reflection should  be enough to lay bare the tactics    of  corporate; employers 'of labor:     these  are  what-they 'have"ever been,   and  may be expressed in one-word���'Division.' i   As long as they can, they   oppose a union, and nd longer able to do  this,   they  bend  all  their energies  lo  oppose any joint action or.sympathy b2-  tvveen unions.;: By'inserting clauses in  contracts, appealing to the selfishness  of men, and by every. means in their  power they aim to sow dissension and  jealousy between organisations of labor  ���and none cam deny they are largely  successful.  ; The -worker is still in many  cases a frail, dependent creature, with  but little knowledge, and as little care  about the influences that are ...working  him.     He   looks above   him   for his  friends  anions  those whose  interests  are intrinsically opposed to his ovvn, instead of around him' and -among those  on his own leivel, who, were they but  united, would be iiivinclblfe."  Things have been moving so t-^ioothly  in the woiking of the ccrd cyt-tcm that  there has been very little to chronicle  of special interest to oiganisrd labor  ir. this city no a whole. The ClTicultles  encountered in the early stager, owing  to sub-contracts being let to fair and  unfair shops, previous,to the introduction of .the "card; are gradually becoming less as nevv ..work is starting up on  a ;better basis' and : more ������ favorable to  the centralized organisation, namely,  the Building Trades -'council,.

Mr. Harry Cowan, of the Independent  staff, is about to erect a house for  himself on Haro^street, and has deputed the agent of the Building Trades  Council, Mr. Charles Hlltoon, to specially, watch over union interests on the  job.

McDonald, a leading wholesale grocer, characterised' the treatment "accorded the  men as unjust. Several of the strikers  who spoke, said that: they would remain out untU-they got their demands.  The Trades, and Labor Council,sent a  resolution, stating that their sympathies were with the men.  As a result; of the meeting, a;settla-  ment of the;troubIe is iexpected; in; a  few days.  The Voice says that.the.strike situation -for the men  Is of- the:'brightest.  Evidence is Increasing every^hoiir that  the company Is almost at the last extremity. The road Is In some parts Impassable and eveiy wliere deteriorating  In   condition.      The i oiling stock    Is  largely uniflt for iise, and the number  of (.strikers   is constantly/increasing.

Her head  drooncd, lier hands hung clasped in  front of her. AU her wild passion  appeared suddenly to havo gono out  of her.  " 'Give mo money then!' sho 'said,  in a doco, hopeless voice.

I shall fool moro  at ease with Dr. Fornoy now. Ho  isn't such a saint as I supposed him.  , I havo always bad such an uncomfortable sense of his superior goodness,  ever 'since I first moi him 1 He is the  , ouly man I evor know that could make  : me stand a littlo in awe of him.

Of course,  however, I cannot seriously doubt my  powers of conquest.   The men always  ��� succumb ���. mo. But be is slowor  coming down than any one I hnvo  | evor known. Thero are times when  11 cannot foel that I hold him en-  ] thralled in the least.

Thero is somo-  I thing vory stand-oil about him. Ho  j would not always bo quito comfort-  ' nblo ns a husband.  Somotimes ho i.s hard to understand.  Now why did he freeze up so when I  suggested lending Riiukiu a gown?  By tho way, I simply cannot got ovcr  her having such a sweetly pretty  thing ns sho wore at tho hop last  niirlit. It. was trimmed with such exquisite lnce. And sho really looked  vory pretty.' I heard several of tho  men asking who sho was. I .wish I  had somo girl friend horo, with whom  I could talk ovcr what I saw last  night. If only Isabel Honmino woro  witli mc! It is awfully hard to keep  it to myself. I don't dnro toll Aunt  Louise. Sho is too injudicious. Slio  would bo so crazy to understand all  about it that- sho would bo suro to betray it.  "Woll, I shall have to wait until I  go'home, and'then I shall toll Isabol  about it nnd nsk hor what she tbiuks  of it. I can hardly wait until I seo  hor!  "Meanwhile, whether or not to  cause Dr. Forney to suspect that I  know somothing���shnll I? It would  be such lots of fun to get him wrought  up!   I must think about it."  iU  '40s.

Ho looked rather palo and  harassed, yet his strong faco bore its  usual expression of solf-command.  His solitary ramble iu tlio summer afternoon beside tlio s * ooth, sunlit son,  was soothing bis tired norvos, and filling him with tbat rare consciousness  of perfect peace in which one rests  absolutely in tho prevent moment and  feols content to have it linger forover.  So ho walked1 slowlj and with a growing sonso of sorouity in tho beauty  around and abovo>bim.  "Sho said sho loved tho soa 'with a  very groat love,'" he mused. "Miss  Hale, too, by the way, seemed, last  night, to show moro gonuiuo appreciation of tho beauty by which wo live  surrounded .hero, than ever beforo  since I havo known ber. I was agreeably surprised at hor genuine enthusiasm on our way homo. It was a  wonderful night, nud sho would indeed have been 'sadly lacking, if. sho  could have been quite cold, to it. Miss  Rsuikin, as wo drovo along, as usual,  did not sny , much, but her faco expressed things! I have begun to think  she bus a speaking face, though I cannot consider ���' bor a beauty. What  astonishing revolutions sho makes of  herself occasionally! A fascinating  little  personality,   when   ono  conies  into real touch with her.   But "  , A sound.behind him nindo biih: suddenly turn.   Somo   distance  bnck in  tlio sandy path wliich ho was  travcrs- L  ing, he saw a small girl  running   to- '  wards him.   Sho bad shouted to him  to "please  stop!"   Sho  looked like"  one of the  village children,  a sunburned, coarsoly-elad littlo ono. Probably she had lost hor  way,   for  she  looked no more than five or six years !  of ago���a dainty, goldou-hairod littlo >  sprite.   He walked to.nieetjker. i  "Oh!" she cried, panting,   as  thoy  camo togolher, "please como!"    j       ���  "Yes," ho  said,   taking  bor tiny '  hand; "where shall I como?" '  "To mother."  "Where is sho?   Can you tako mo?" i  ho asked..', But he needed no answer, '  for she 'eagerly led Mm along. , |  "Mother failed," sho explained,   as ,  thoy hurried away from tho shore and '  up a slope of ground   towards  the ;  woods. I  "Where?" I  "Oif a chair." I  "Near horo? ...Where is she now?"    I  "At home.   Right up horo  iu the'  woods.   Tbo lady seou you pass a bit  ago, and just theii mother failed, and '  the lady said, 'Go after him,   Polly,  he^s^doctor^jiuickr "  i ho had carried thither  in his   arms;  ! ho  was perfoctly  familiar' with the  signs.  | Tho caso was quickly explained by  tho elder girl. Hor mothor had stood  upon a chair to bang out the wash  which she was doing for a lady at the  Polbnin Bench Cottage, when sbe  suddenly fainted; sho had a tumor in  hor breast whicli kept hor w��ak, and  tho wash bail been largo and hard to  , do.  1     "Tho lady at tho cottago needed it  by   to-morrow    morning,"   said   the  ohilil, hopelessly, "and sho sayed 'less  mother conld promise to got it finished by that timo,   sho would have to  send  it  to tho village. ���- And mother  promised, but now  it won't  bo  did  . and   tho" lndy'll   bo  cross.

A Fine Mlat of Ltqnld���Apple* Sprayed to the Proper 3*olnt.  Much of the success In spraying  trees depends upon the proper application of tho liquid. Some persons start  in with a determination "to do n thorough job and glvo them nn everlasting  soaking" until everything Is dripping.  If this is done, tliere will be less material on thc trees iu tbe end tlmn If less  were applied ln n proper manner. Thla  ao some mny seem paradoxical. Nevertheless It is a fnct. nnd the Illinois stn.'  tion in a recent bulletin lias presented  on explanation of just bow this takes  plnce:  It will be necessary to consider the  globules of water ns they come from  SrilAYED TO THE FIlOI'BIt I'OIST.  tbo nozzle, carrying with them suspended particles of pnris green or bordeaux mixture," or both, ns the case  mny be. Tbe settling whlcli takes place  in tho spray tunk goes on within the  globules of water nfter they become  fixed to the fruit nnd leaves. Hence  the larger tho globule the more bottling  will tnke place, and consequently the  moro mnterinl will be deposited nt one  place. The only way this can be avoid-'  ed is to hnve the globules very small  and fine ns they lenve the nozzle nnd  to keep them intact ns separate, fine  globules after they become attached  to the frult'or leaf., Hence tho impor-  tnnce of the Injunction, "Use only a  fine nozzle, use force enough to keep"  the liquid issuing as n line mist and  spray only until the follngo and fruit  are 'completely bedewed." It rcquiios  considerable skill to do this properly  nnd cover the surfnee fully. If'It can  not be done with one spraying it would  pny better to go over the trees twice,  allowing the first application to dry  before giving the second, than to try  to accomplish if nil at one time nnd  thus ruu the risk of going further thnn  the simple bedevylng of the fiuit or  leaves. If the spray is continued too  long the fine globules will "run together" .to form one or several .lnrge ones,  which. Instead of remaining fixed nnd  drying Just where they strike, will run  down to tbe lowest place nnd drip. Of  course tbe suspended material.settles  to tbe lowest, point of the globule,  which Is ln thnt ense sprend over n considerable surface of tbe fruity Some of  the upper portions nre thus left com  pletely bnre. At tbo lower edge the material will drip off with tbe wnter or  often accumulate in sufficient quantity  to cause Injury.  Tlie cuts show thc imprints of the  fine, separate globules, leaving the surfaces quite uniformly covered on tlie  properly sprayed specimen, whllg the  oversprayed shows bow the running  together hns left a lnrge portion exposed to attack.

Tho Emernlil Green Lawn.  A deep rich emerald green Is tbe  shade most desired In a lavvu grass, ns  It Is generally pleasing nnd ccrtnlnly  tbe most beautiful of nil tints. No  grass in the northern and middle states  fills this requirement so well ns Kentucky blue grass. Thc color of this  grnss when grown under favorable  clrcnmBtanccs may be regarded ns tho  'standard upon which to base compnrl-  , sons. Different varieties of Kentucky  blue grnss show slight variations In  color, some being lighter than others,  but upon the whole the deep rich shade  of green mny be relied upon.  - The Kanrqaat,  Visitors to Florida or similar far  oouthern points should secure a plant  or two of the Japanese kumqunt for  their conservatories.

OF INTEREST TO DAIRYMEN  A   Plnn   For  the   Propoied   Teat   of  Dnlrj- flrecda nt St. Louis.  Every owner of pure bred dairy cows  should wnke up to tbls subject, especially If he owns n valuable cow thnt  may be sought nfter for this test. He  should endeavor to hnve tho plnn such  ns be Is willing to submit bis cow to.  if be falls to do oo, he should not withhold his cow, however objectionable to  blm tbe pliin mny be.  To this end there should 'be free discussion of the subject. I know of uo  better plnce for It tliun In the columns  of the agricultural press. Tlio breeder  who Is not free to use bis infiuence  for the best "possible pltin sliould not  be excused for tbnt reason In withholding his cows from the test. "Silence gives consent" Is fin ndiige In  common use. I venture to'open such  n discussion and hope thnt others will  follow,    o  The best plnn for tbo test, In my  opiniou, would be one modeled nfter  the form of the Ohio stnte plnn. This  plnn hns been successfully used for  several years under tbe nuspices of  the Ohio stnte bonrd of agriculture.  Its lending features nre testing of each  Individual cow at the. home of ber  owner by representatives of the state  experiment btntlon nnd finally the ex  bibltloD of all the cows together for n  fixed period at the state fnlr.  There would hnve to be widely differ-  i<nt details at the St. Louis exposition.  1 will suggest a few details tentatively:  First���Tbe period over which the test  should be extended ought to be a long  ine, probably ten months.  Second.���Tbnt nt least three tests of  two weeks ench should be mnde at intervals during such a period. I will  suggest that the liist should be commenced some time between 14 nnd.28  days nfter freshening, the second between 114 nnd 128 days after nnd the  third between 214 nnd 22S days nfter.  Third.���All the tests be made under  the supervision of two reprcsentntlvcs  of nn experiment station,- who should  wntch the cows dny and night, note the  care, weigh the food. etc.". thnt the results should be subject to coniirmntion  by retcstfng in every ense thnt the authorities of the exposition requested.  Fourth.���That prizes be offered for  net proflt.'for value of total solids, for  value of butter fnt. etc.  Fifth.���Thnt tbe number of prizes be  at lenst 100. but'that no one breed be  nwurdod more thnn twenty-five.  Sixth.���Tbut after the completion of  the period allotted for testing nil the  winning cows be exhibited on the  grounds of the exposition perhaps two  weeks,.to be seen by all nnd critically  examined by those wbo desire to study  tbeir conformation.   . i  The average cost of testing a cow  thus would not evceed $100. At this  rate twenty-five would cost $3,750. An  npproprlatiou of S.'i.OOO' would cover  this and leave a balance of SI.250 for  duplicating the prizes of tbe exposition.  S. HOXIE.  Yorkvllle, N.

While the utility of shredded corn  fodder scarcely ndmlts of a doubt, yet  tlicre nre mnny who are slow In being  convinced tbat it Is a means of saving  of valuable feed, snys Morgan Keane  In Trnlrle Fnrmer. If shelter ennnot  be had. the next best thing ls to rick  the fodder ns fast as it ls shredded.  Let tbo rick be eight feet high, with n  slight flare from the ground, say seven  or eight feet high, and tup off at an  angle of 45 degiees, carrying thla top  _up_aJlttle_fl!iring_on_the_eiids, When  the top or cover is on, wire fence mils  together so tbnt the cone may be held  securely, und'on ouch side of the rick  put a rail tbe full length, then wire  another rail on ench side to the upper  rail so as to secure the lower eud from  the wind. Tbe rick should be of sucb  wldtb as to lnsuro a good projection  with one-length of fodder on one side.  One can stnnd fodder around for fuis  ther protection, but If the top Is all  right this will not be necessary, lt ls  always best to place the rick endwise  to prevailing wind.  Alfnlrn Sllnice.  A California Inquirer asks Hoard's  Duirytnnn whether It would he profitable to build. All and maintain silos  for corn or alfalfa where alfalfa ls  plentiful and cheap.

K.  Ross of Simcoe to The Farmers* Advocate. My burn is 52 by 02 feet; height  of basement, nlue feet My cnttle stalls  are placed across the short way, or the  fifty-two feet, and unde'r the feed alleys I bave eight Inch tlle running the  entire length nnd through tbe south  walls. About a foot from surface, one  side only, I bave gns pipe Inserted in  the tlle opposite every stall (double),  which projects over the parting block  in the feed manger. There is concrete  floor laid over tile nnd pipe iu alleys.  For ventilating shafts I find thnt the  small shaft, say 4 by 8 inches, running  up posts of barn, nre much better than  lnrger ones, as there nre no dowu  drafts nnd no dampness or frost attaching to tbem to fall down in mild  weather, nnd tbey draw better. 1 find  this system tbe most perfect. There is  always n small current of fiesh air  tempered coming through the tile and  coming out of small pipe Just where It  is wanted���at the animals' noses���  which current of air is sufficient to  lift the foul breatb of cnttle aad send  it up ventilating shuft, yet without any  cold nlr on the cattle. You nre^unuble  to smell the odor from feeding turnips  in my stnbles nt any time. I stnble  from forty to fifty bend of cattle, besides other stock. I have about twelve  shafts with covers on top, so I .can  close any or nil of tbem if necessary.  The sbnfts nro about sixteen feet long  fiom thc ceiling of stnble. I would ud  vise two thiough roof. I hnve tlle in  my stnbles which continues through  under my toot bins, with ventilation,  which works very successfully. One  can bore bole In tile for gas pipe with  an ordinary bit. Tomperatuie never varies 5 degrees with this system.  Improie Your Herd.  . Many dairymen possessing common  cows got discouraged because they say  they ennnot compete successfully with  more fortunate farmers owning blooded herds. To such let me say the remedy for Improvement lies in your own  hands, if you think you ennnot spare  the money to purchase a blooded bull,  attempt to secure tho services of one  this season for at lenst n portion 'of  your herd. Select only your best' milk  anlmnls to be the mothers of your future grades, nud you will soon bnve n  herd of thc latter of which no dairyman need be ashamed.���Dairy aud  Creamery.

Every pull, can. churn,  ladle, pneknge, cloth nnd worker must  be scrupulously free from 'anything  which will imparl a taint to tbe finished product. The hands specially must  be clean.  Poodo Thnt .Taint Milk.  The presence of wild garlic or wild  onions in pastures, tbe use of turnips  and other feeds containing oil must bo  avoided wliere cows aro giving n large  amount of milk. Feeds which havo a  bad odor, sucb as sllnge, must be fed  rlgbt after milking nnd nt no other  time; otherwise the milk nnd resulting  butter is apt to show the effects. In  all cases keep theso feeds away from  the cow during milking time. Taints  from sllnge or other foul feeds nre  transmitted through the air; consequently If the nlr Is full of silage odor  the milk Is apt to show It If, however,  feeds of this kind are given directly  nfter milking the product from thc cow  cannot be distinguished from tlint produced from other feeds, although condensing factories nnd some creameries  prohibit Its use.���New Englnnd Home-  stend.

Within recent years the development  of horse shows, east, west, north, and  south, has become remarkable. Having thcir greatest encouragement in  the cast, they gradually spicad to the  lnrger western cities, 'and they have  now become so prcvulent as to be an-  nunl events in the cities of nil sections.  It is generally thought that these nre  merely fushiouiible events Intended for  the display and recreation of those  having little to do with the active business of life, but, suys tbe Now Hug-  lnnd Houiestend. a deeper stijdy of the  subject will show tbut these exhibitions hnve a mnrked Influence on tho  development of our horse breeding Interests.  When the racing calendar was established some hundreds of years ago,  running horses were given an impetus  which in turn reacted on the thoroughbred horse to such a degree ns to make  it, 'without exception, the lending breed  of horses, nnd thus untold goud was  accomplished for the thoroughbred Interests. Later, witb tbe establishment  of trotting races earlier in the century  arid the publication of the yeur book  giving the records made, tbo trotting  horse was brought to tbe front and as  a result it occupies at this' time a more  prominent place amongithe breeds of  our light horses.  The horse shows seem to offer tbe  same stimulus to the harness race tbat'  hns been given to tbe others. Tho horse  show ns It ls conducted becomes nn object lesson to the people of cities who  use horses ns to the proper appoint- -  ments and the right type of horse that  sbould go with them.  Two or three successful horse shows  ;ln a city nre usually sufficient to start  the improvement It leads some one  wbo has a preference for horses of this  kind to invest in nn unusually attractive pair, which In turn stimulates the  emulation of other lovers of horses, and  in the course of a year or so tbe char- ���  acter of the equipages of tbe city' becomes markedly changed for the better.

To ihe Kiiiior of 'I'iik Indki-knuknt:  Sir.���Mr. Debs, according'to the Canadian Socialist of this- city, has started  to abuse the efforts of trade unionists  in this province���if what the said paper  publishes over'his name be true.   These  course remarks attributed to Mr. Debs  do not come from him with very good  grace. .He  says  "the only  thing  important enough to mention ls the Provincial   Progressive    party,    a  middle  class movement.   In this party are to  be found anarchists, single tnxcrs and  others."   He forgot to sny that, among  the  "others"   were   to  be found   men  every bit as good socialists as he" was  himself, or ever would be.   Were it not  for tho  fact  that  Mr.  Debs is a national  character and   that  1 iknow  of  what I am wilting about,     I     would  not notice such a scurrilous statement  as he makes against a most desemin  body of men.   Mr. Defls would not dare  to get up before a Vancouver or Itoss  land audience or any other In any place  in British Columbia   and    deliver tihe  same statement as is attributed to him  by the .paper referred to.   It is a 'base  calumny on a large .-body of working  men throughout this province who are  aiming to get a better state of things  than has hitherto been by legal means,  not  unlawful means.   The only    place  for anarchists to thrive iind get succo  is in the so-called socialist ranks, which  are the breeders of anarchists. The rea  son these socialists stand at the 'corner  of   the   streets   -and   denounce   trade  unions is simply 'because  they see in  the trade union movement an organized  compact body of men, prepared to accept socialism   only 'when   the   time  conies for it and not Ibefore.   That is  why trade unionists as well as socialists started the Provincial Progressive  party as one of the means .whereby to  get our own class elected to press for  those reforms wihich should lead up to  the socialist Ideal. And why Mr. Dobs  and the socialists should scoff at the  little things of life and refuse 'to accept  them is a mystery .to any thinking person.   They certainly should not expect  to*''wa!ke up -some morning and find a  state of real socialism.   If they do they  vvill have slept a couple    of thousani  years���all the same Belamy's ihero. The  trouble, with the socialists is that thev  talk too much���for if   talking would  bring socialism on earth It should have  been here long ago���and do no tangible  work���work that would help, to bring It  about.   The trade -unionists themselves  vvill haive accomplished socialism white  these ��� blowers-off of gas are  thinking  and talking about it. /Mr. Debs is himself the product of the'' trade ' union  movement���a forerunner   as it   were.  What Mr. 'Debs' is to-day advocating,  -thousands nof. having   deserted    the  ranks of ; the. trade union will (be accomplishing in a few, more years.   Two  years ago when IMr. Dobs lectured in  this city in the Labor liul], under the  auspices of the trades council, he was  called a "hubor fakir" iby the socialists  of Vancouver, because he presumed to  ask $150 for his expenses and his lecture.  IMr. Debs received that,   money  then from.tbe trade unionists,, who do  not look upon ihim as a. "fakir" like the  socialists.   The socialists now are employing the same man, who,gaive part  of the same lecture as he gave at Labor Jiall in this city, and giving him  $100 or over to lecture for ihim.   I would  like to ask how it was that when Debs  lectured for the trades council and received  the money for so doing made  him a "labor fakir," tout when he lectured for the, socialists    and  received  money for It tihat he is not considered  by them a "f-alklr."   Is it'not an unfair  and unreasonable stand   the socialists  taike?   Everything that eftianates from  tho-trnde-ur.ion_movement-they-loo.c  upon as bad and not to.be relied upon  to be viewed with suspicion.   The ablest  talkers of the unloins ure dubbed  us  "ln.bor   fakirs"   and   "gratters."      Yet  were the same men working to advance  socialism they would be considered    ns  men ot honor,  - to   be -looked   'up  to,  to  quote   from,    to    tnike  pattern   by.  President   Itsilph   Smith,   of   the   Canadian   ln<bor congress,  because  he   Is  a  trade unionist Is u'"fnlklr."   IMr.  I-Iaw-  thoriitlivvalte, ibecnuse .he  Is  not,  Is n  gentleman.   These are   .the    sickening  viiprirliigH"emanating from  the socialists.   These  people should    know  that  men can't abuse men Into .socialism.   H  Is   to   men's -reason   wc-'must'-appeal.  Hiilph iSniith may not be'nn advocate  of .socialism new, .but he may be In a  few years���the snme ns Debs.   For Is  not .socialism a growth,'ibrought about  by reading and  thinking.   I  am    well  aware   that  not   nil   those   vvho  style  themselves ns socialists are socialists nt  heart.   Any new doctrine they will accept nnd tliey would,be capitalists tomorrow If they had a chance to be, for  thoy are such'at-heart.-It Is not because there Is no hope for their present  troubles and conditions" altering that  they join the ranks of socialism.

P., and  a copy sent to this paper for publication,   lt deals with the Mulock arbi-  ��� tration bill.   The Phoenix Trades Council desires  that  the letter should be  _glvcn as much publicity as possible  "Sir    William    Mulock,   Minister    i.t  Labor, Ottawa, Ont.:  " Dear Sir,���I am In receipt of your  .letter, dated the 25th ultimo, enclosing  Railway Labor Disputes,' which, letter  invites criticism of organized labor on  .the said bill,' With regard to the'eo'n-  'lents of aforesaid bill, I am directed to  ��� say that we are entirely' "   -. \.'; '' ���  Opposed,to the Whole Scheme,  .and on .the following grounds: ;  "Firs fcr.8��Cause^the_ Bill. proposes .to  -take away thp inalienable right of  T- every citizen to forsake his or' her employment at will, to persuade his fellows to 'do'likewise,1 ,an'd io uss.'all law?  .'fui meakis tofpreveht others'from tak-  _ing the pltce or places so vacated.  ���Second���ItOglves to a company or  - corporation much more power in such  .a matter <by'Its representative on the  ��� board of arbitration), than it ..could  . pioperly obtain, were the matter sub-  .mltted to a referendum'vote' of the  whole people, who are,' in such disputes  the rightful arbiters of all questions  -involving the public, welfaie, and of  -which a railway'strike Is one.  "The  representation of property on  -an equality with persons,-Is a principle  which   is  fundamentally  wrong,  and,  ���when the payment of dividends is only  , achieved by hardships upon employees  ..and by the discomfort of the general  public, the piopeity.o\vners sliould be  ��� the only ones to suiter'from the con-  . sequences  arising from    their   greed,  .and, especially so, for the reason that  the employees and the general public  .have-to shoulder"the burden of paying  ��� dHldends on watered stock.  "Third���There is always a possibility,  nay,  a probability,    that   as the  people are at piesent (mis) represented,   that  the  railway's representative  on the board of arbitration, knowing  the lieutenant-governor  "or governor-  general to be biased in favor (as may  .@��@0@0@9��0����������#����������a  ��   Ask Your.

I  have just quoted his own words,, an 1  they fortri'U vjerMi'strong argument for,  .    Public, Ownership.  ij-iilw:  One of the objects of .parliament, one  would' think, Is to see that railway  employees are justly paid. That, such  is the case now (even after the recent  award of the arbitration committee), I  emphatically deny. Section men, even  now, get barely a living wage, and,  until their condition Is further amended, the people of Canada, a? represented b�� organised labor, will not complain about any convenience or hardship they may experience through the  efforts (by strike or otherwise), of the  railway servants to obtain a moiety of  their earnings. If the government Is  really sincere Iu its professions of interest in thc labor and the general public, it will at once take steps to acquire' the railways of the whole Dominion, ut the price at which they may  be duplicated, and thus follow the lead  of other civilized counti ics, which have  all, with two exceptions,  Adopted this Policy.  There can be no excuse on the grounds  of poverty, as the Dominion has,_wlthf  which has 'been accomplished in the few  short months of-its existence, it having  only been formed since 11th (March last.  The union was addressed by Chris-  Foley, the president of the Provincial  Progressive Party, who gave a stirring  speech to his Interested audience along  the lines of political action.  The hall, which .was nicely decorated  for the occasion, will be 'known as the  Federal Union Hall, and as It has  stage will be open to engagements by  theatrical companies, balls, etc. ' It  hns a seating capacity of between 300  and 400.  The Grand Forks Federal Labor  union itself ls made up of workingmen  of all descriptions of employment and  Is In business to stay there. It has  actively entered upon the prosecution of  politics as the. means by which Ithe  ends of the woikers are to be Obtained  and there is no doubt that this union  will give an excellent account of itself  at the next election whicli will be held  In this province.  FISHERMAN AN'D CANNERS  AGREE.  The iflshermen and canners have arranged a compromise on the price to be  paid for sockeyes during the seaso.i.  The scale agreed upon Is as follows:  Up to a pack of 200,000 cases, 20 cents;  over 200,000 and up to 250,000 cases, 18  cents; over 250,000 and up to 350,000  cases, 1C 1-2 cents; over 330,000 and up  to 400,000 cases, 13 1-2 cents; over 400,-  000 and Tip to 450,000, 12 1-2 cents; over  450,000 and up to 600,000 cases, 11 1-2  cents; over COO.OOO cases and up to 630,-  000 cases, 11 cents. ' Eleven cents is to  be the minimum price; the canners to  restrict the number of boats and give  preference to union men' and Indians;  the canners to assist in the collection of  union fees and dues by instructing  their bookkeepers to deduct the amount  from the moneys coming to the fishermen. A representative of the fishermen will check the eatch and pack at  the end of the season- August 25th will  be considered the last day of the sockeye fishing, and the last four conditions  may be taken into consideration ,by the  canners in regard to making them permanent'contritions.  ,���-,",}  -   ff^  '  ' The feudal Byete'm'led to the formation  of a higher and a lowei- ciiBte. The  lower lived purely''and simply to  maintain the higher. If 'a man hnd  the good fortune "to be born," as  the French phrase had it, he expected  maintenance, service and obedience from  those who* hod riot that privilege as a  matter of'right. In tlie early days of  the system it worked very well.' But  the inevitable development was that the  upper or ruling class exacted more and  more, became larger and inoreidle, until  tho astonishing spectacle was afforded  'bf the greater portion"of the human race  in feudal countries living hopelesslivesof  abjectlpoverty to support the rest in  unexampled luxury.���Colonist.  ff^0ft686'08BM'8<{>0tit>fliWttBfflO0'gCCa008<)<iiCBgi>0tflOWC^W  t  i Fit-Reform  Clothes  I Are as  Union Directory.

The Canadian or United States boy  who is fortunate enough to bo awarded one of Cecil Hhodes' Oxfoid scholarships will hud. much to interest him  ul thc historic old university, but be  will also Iind much that is puzzling  and much that will be in his eyes  eccentiic enough.  The university is a collection' of  colleges and halls, twenty-two in all,  and each has its own matriculation.  The lucky boy who wishes to enter  Oxford must first apply to the head  of whatever college he desires to bo  identified with. He will be asked a  number of questions about his previous education, family history, etc.  If llie head thinks that tho youth is  lik'ely to prove an ornament to the  college in some branch .of learning, be  will give him a preliminary examination and place his name upon tbo  rolls.  After this the student is governed  by the rules of his college except to  report for the various university examinations. No student can obtain  an Oxford degree unless he has kept  his "terms"���that is, has lived . at  Oxfoid for three years. That he has  done so is determined, oddly enough,  by attendance nt dinner in tbe college hall.    Tlio student mny skip any  9 'ft  MKS.  DAUWIX.

Next year this one will have  been wasted, while the now tuber  will bo supporting the new stem, nnd  a newer tuber will be forming on  the other side. This process goes on  year after year, says F��dward Step  in The Pall' Mall Alngnzine, with the  icsult that the -tem is each year  about half an imh from the spot  Iho plant occupied twelve months  previously.  A similar action, though much  more pronounced, is characteristic of  some gnrdcii lilies and several of  our spring flowering bulbs.

For a  season or two it retains its position,  then it brealts up into a number of  smaller bulbs, equalling or exceeding  in number the flowering,stems sent  up tho previous summer; but when  these in tuin give off each a stem  it does not at once assume a vortical  direction, but shoots almost horizontally until it reaches tho side of the  pol, when it rises erectly.

One of the requisites in the Cecil  Hhodes" scholarships is that the  student must bo ciliciont in somo  branch of sport.. This is an absolute  es.seiili.il at Oxford as far as the  studio's happiness is concerned, for  a young ninn who tried to resist the  athletic atmosphere of the place  would hnvo a decidedly unpleasant  and lonesome existence. At Oxford  the sports are managed absolutely by  llie students, nnd no graduate is permitted lo interfere or participate in  them except in an honorary way, as  treasurer or the like. The rules governing sports, however, are in the  main what they are in Canada.  An Oxford law Unit many a cls-  Atl.nitic boy will find irksome is that  which requires thc men to be in residence by 8 o'clock at night. If  the.v are out later than that, they  are lined. Between 8 and 10 the lino  is twopence, between 10 und 11  threepence, nnd between 11 nnd midnight a shilling.

Tho cup is ot  silver, and Is suid to be one of th��  pretiiest and most tasteful things of  ils kind in existence. An idea of its  beauty and value may be gathered  when it is stated that the trophy  cost the donor and his associates no  less than SI.200. Thc cup is in the  form of a vase rising from a circular  base ornamented with a bnnd of Celtic tracery. From this base proceeds  a slender, tapering stein composed of  three intertwining dolphins. From  the stem springs the'body of tbe cup  LORO   O'BlilEN'S INTBIUKTIONAL   nOWINO  CUP.  proper, wliich is divided into two  sections, the lower part hcing enriched with four winged sea horses,  forming flying buttresses, while tho  upper portion is profusely decorated  with draped flags, oars, shells, and  marino plants, in tho midst of which  aro two shields in the form of life  buoys. Seated on either side are.tho  figures of a. merman and a mermaid,  tho latter resting against the edge  of the lid, round which runs a border of shamrock leaves. Tho entire  design is surmounted by a group  composed of Neptune, with his , trident, driving a team of sea horses.

Every cause capable of increasing  tho amount of blood ordinarily circulating through the brain has a  tendency to causo wakefulness, says  Tho Popular Scienco News. If 'the  brain is often kept for long periods  on the stretch, during which th��  vessels are filled to replotion, they  cannot contract even when the exciting causes cease. Wakefulness, as  a consequence, results, and every  day tho condition of the individual  becomes worse becauso timo bringt  the force ��� of habit into operation.  Everything that tends to throw the  blood unduly to the brain or to accumulate it there should bo avoided.  This is a vital matter, and prevention is better than cure.  Tight or ill fitting articles of dress,  especially about tho neck or waist,  and tight boots and shoes, should be  discarded. The feet should bo kept  warm so that the circulation ,may be  promoted. Wearing cork soles in the  boots or shoes and changing the  socks every day aro excellent means  to this end" and strongly recommended, Apart, however, from physical  causes, there are ..yarious moral  causes acting on the brain equally  inimical to sleep.

On the other hand, when the  attention begins to flag tho tendency  is for the vessels to contract and for  sleep to ensue.  limine for Quern's Nursing; Sisters.

St. Elzpar, Que., Juno 2.���(Special)  ll is a well known characteristic of  our French Canadian people that  they are fearless and enthusiastic in  llieir praise of anything or anybody  that has befriended them.  No one is more callable of moro  gracefully expressing gratitude than  the average French gentleman.  A recent case illustrates this point.  Mons. Jean Boivtio has for many  years been afllicted with a terrible  malady of the kidneys.  He suffered a vory great deal of  pain, and liis disease forced him to  rise every hour during tho night.  lie was advised to use Dodd's Kidney Pills, and after taking a short  treatment, found himself completely  cured.  His gratitude knew no bounds,and  ever since he has recommended to all  his friends tho wonderful remedy  which cured him so promptly and  completely.  When ho finds anyone who has no  confidence in them, bis first act is to  givo them some pills, and explain to  them how to use them,  and bo has  found  this method  very soon    convinces the most skeptical of thotruth  of    the   statement   he    makes   that  Dodd's Kidney Pills are tbo greatest  medicine in the world.  Mons. Boivue says :  "Dodd's Kidney Pills aro good.  "I know this because while at one  time I sudoral  very severely    from  Kidnoy Disease, now I am well.  "Not long ago I used to havo to  get up several times during the  night, now 1 can sleop well all night  without rising.
