P., Makes a Brilliant Yet Moderate Speech  at the Berlin Banquet���The Subject of War Discussed���Arbitration and Conciliation���Protection���W. D. Mahone, Chairman.  J  " ���There was published in the Berlin  2STews-Record an account of a speech  delivered by Ralph Smith, M. P.. at a,  ibanquet held dn honor ot the trades  congress which recently met In that  r city. It Is stated that those who heard  lit eay It was a master-piece, the like  of which was never befoie made by any  champion of labor In the Dominion of  Canada. Tho banqueting hall was  .crowded to the doors by representatives  of all classes. It appeal's that Dr.  I_aclcner, M. P. P. for Berlin In the  Ontario legislature, had just made a  speech extolling the claims of a high  .protective tariff as being ln favor o��  tlie Industrial classes. This aroused  Mr. Smith as a slumbering lion and he  at once' entered Into nn attack upon  this  doctrine. ���  Mr. W. D. Mahone, president of the  International Street Railway . Men's  Association, and one of the principal  organizers of the A. F. of L., presided  at the function.  Mr. Smith spoke as follows: It was  altogether out ot place to make  A Critical Speech  u  at any banquet, but the doctor, who  proceeded him, must remember that he  (had set a bad example and, Iri Mr.  Smith's opinion, had taught a bad doctrine. He had intimated with pleasure  *hat the workingmen of Berlin putron-  dzed his medical establishment and partook of his drugs to a greater extent  - than any other medical man was pat-  xonized In that place. 'This might be  Itrue, said Mr. Smith, but he hoped lhat  they-would take small doses, If any at  alii,,of the mixture that the doctor-had  ' Just prescribed to th'em. (Applause.)  Protection to Jndusirlos was no part  of the labor men's political piogrammo.  They did   not   believe ��� for one minute  - that they could be made rich by any  principle of taxation. And ln his ex-  jiQricnce tthe  employers '"  Desiring High Protection  ns a rule wore the very Individuals who  protested most strongly against any  degree of protection In favor of the industrial classes. A measure of protection was always the measure of advanced prices for th'e article protected  If producers were not consumers pio-  tectlon might mean something to them.  (Applause.) He continued along these  lines of argument on this theme, which  astonished the doctor. Then he went  on to defend tho principles of trades  unionism. In emphasizing tills point  lie arose to the occasion by malting a  splendid defence for. the above, and  -while it was. that, it was important  also to the labor world of-the dominion  as it expressed the opinion of the retiring president of1 the congress on  The Subject of War,  this being the' flrst public utterance  Mr. Smith has given to his convictions.  In his prefatory words he brought out  the idea that as the delegates arc gathered theie to further the interests of  -ithe-woi'kinainuii-of-the-doiiilnion,-so-it  Is the duty of the members of the par  llament o�� Canada to promote and enact legislation for the good of the do-  auinion, and nol to confine or limit their  efforts to any one province. Only those  mien can rank as statesmen who are  jnen of broad views���men big enough  to look beyond thc boundary lines of  their ovvn constituency. The narrow  provincialism was decried as unfitting  men wlio aspire to occupy the seats  of honor and power and contended that  ihe would have no right li further Interests of British Columbia, If by so  doing he would Interfere with the  Progress of the Dominion  as a whole, nnd every demand mnde in  favor of tlie province or to he based  on the principle of being good for the  ���whole dominion. The narrow, bitter  soctionlsts are not tho men to build up  Canada or any other country; what Is  needed is men as big In mind as our  country is great and rich In possessions. (Applause.) He, expressed sincere joy at seeing the race cry agitation of old, eliminated from the politics  tand deliberations of the men who make  the laws1 and took It as a good "omen  of that solidification of interests necessary to the progress of tho country. He  was sorry to know that this same narrow spirits of self and sectionalism possessed nt times the minds of employees as well as employers. "Get all you  can, demand all you can, but on the  other hand, never break your contract; play the man and always make  the employer feel that you are a reasonable man." (Applause.) The establishment of such a relationship will  tend very greatly to the compliance of  tho '  Workers' Demands,  If they are reasonable. The strength  of the demands of tiades unions must  in every case be measured by public  sympathy. They are tlie Impai'tiul  Judges, and hTmost cases judge fairly.  He deprecated the revolutionary sentiments advocated by so-called reformers  and advocated trades unionism���not as  a socialistic, Utopian idea, but as a  practical remedy for actual existing  condidtions. Trades unions w��ie the  regulators of tlie operations of capital  by demanding better terms and forcing  legislation .in their interests. In  lluenced probably by the charges made  against him a few days ago he made  a Stirling appeal for loyalty to tlieir  leaders, on the part of the rank and  file. The tyranny of the mass of workers over their champions he classed as  to  worse than the tyranny of capital ovor  labor. (Applause.) Capital Is harmonious and stands in a solid phalanx behind its advocates; labor classes divide  and swerve. He prayed that they  vvouid trust their ' leaders as capital  does its; that a spirit'of  Charity and Tolerance  s  should rule their actions and that they  should learn If the leaders are to fitly  lead they must be fitly trusted. He  had ,been in .England this past summer, and has.studied the different aspects and results of the -war ln South  Africa. Every blow that has been  struck there is being paid for by the  industrial classes of the empire, While  the ministeis of government were lauding the work of the colonial troops, the  mechanic, the bread-winner of England, was cursing the war for forcing  from him additional taxes, that he can  ill afford to pay to provide the sinews  of conflict. He had no hesitation In  saying that the operatlons.of war were  against the best interests of the working classes. In being put on record, he  did not wish to be classed as a pro-  Boer or to question  The Justice of the War, ���  but he maintained that all the strength  of a nation lies not In Its artillery and  power of war, but In the happiness and  prosperity of the producers of the  country, that so did it bring an unjust  burden upon that large proportion of  the population. (Cheers.) He did not  disparage the dominion's action in  sending out men to South Africa, but  he~pointed~out_that-as_producers��� the"  wage earners had to pay for it. He declined there is not a working man in  England but would sign a charter cancelling all the military operations in  South Africa, as the burden falls so  heavily upon him. Taxes are higher  and cost of living higher than ten years  ago and . wages lower. The trades  unions do not want war, but they  want  Arbitration and Conciliation.  It Is possible' after cool deliberation on  the' lcnsons ns given for the great war  In South Africa it will be found that  It was' originally created In favor of  British capitalistic exploiters In that  country, and not in the lntercstB of tho  poor or downtrodden class. (Applause.)  Even the fundamental objection of the  Britishers in South Africa, namely, the  natuie of the grunted franchise whon  rightly considered was as extensive nnd  as liberal as tine British government nre  prepared to give to tholr own subjects.  In nny caso let warfare bo the last resort. In labor conflicts trades unionists would be considered very un 'eason-  able If they brought on an industrial  war, and thus brought distress to the  people without iflrst using every means  of conciliation or arbitration for a settlement of the case. To his mind the  same principle held good ln the  AVars with Nnl Ions,  which were many more times ns cxtcn-  Bive. (Applause.) Governments 'were  supposed to represent thc people und  ought hy all means to set a nobler example. But he was afraid that whilst  they were ready to enter into national  conflict at tremendous cost to the people in favor of the rich few they wero  always slow to even protest, much less  than light for the imposition of com  bined capital against the rights of the  masses, and trades unionists should  keep cool' heads and consider the cost,  for they have always to pay the bill.  He was glad that militarism was comparatively a matter of small concern  in Canada. (Applause.) No doubt if a  few pensioned soldiers' In this country  had their way, tremendous expense  would be thrown upon the people of  this  dominion  for   the  Equipments of Warfare.  In England the llrst anxiety was for  their strength of Implements of war.  We are free fiom this rancorlng consideration and wanted to remain so.  And this ought to be the watchword of  trades organizations. Mr, Smith went  on to show the great benefits of trades  unions and showed that the present  remedy vas by such, and appealed to  labor men to work along these lines  He concluded by telling his hearers a  story told to him by John Burns, M. P.,  who was Invited and took part in a  very Important cricket match at one of  the large asylums in the city of London.   There were  Some 3,000 Lunatics  under  the    control    of  half    a dozen  guards present to witness   the   game.  When the sports were over the chief  t  warden  conducted   Mr.  Burns  avouud  the institution. Looking upon the large  crowd of patients���strong, robust men  as they vvere���Mr. Burnfi remarked;  "Are you not afraid that these fellows will organize almost any day to  kill you?" "No," said the chief warden, "lunatics never organize. That is  impossible. We have nothing to fear  from that point of view. Men must  be capable," said he-, "of thought and  the importance of united action to organize. Lunatics are always completely "disunited." (Laughter and great applause.) ,  The speechi of Mr. Smith occupied  about three-quarters of an hour and  the N audience were most enthusiastic  for lilm to continue. He resumed his  seat amid great applause, lasting for  some minutes. When he could be  heard Mr. Mahone .called for thic  cheers for Mr. Smith, and declared that  was the best defence of trades unionism  that he had ever heard, and that lt  should be piinted verbatim and sent all  over the American continent.  HUE EXPLOSIONS.  Andrew Roy, mine Inspector of Ohio,  says:  "Explosions ln mines are never  caused by the fault of the miners; for  it the mining laws of the several mining states were enforced and obeyed  THERE COULD NOT BE AN EXPLOSION." _,  Lionel Brough, a British mine inspector, lias this to say:  "I avail myself of this opportunity  to say that, after great explosions,  sudden outbursts of gas are- too often  .suggested as the cause of the calamity; again, doors left open, tobacco-  Miioking, lamps tampered with���anything, in fact, except the true cause,  INSUFFICIENT VENTILATION. It  matters but little which may be the  pievaillng danger���firedamp or black-  damp���thorough, searching ventilation,  never neglected, will sweep both or  either thoroughly and speedily away."  J. IC. Blackwell, a British commissioner of mines, has written:  "There is another class of injuries,  resulting from defective ventilation, to  winch miners are exposed. The circumstances producing these injuries are  slow in operation, and, as their effects  being disease and not sudden and im-  t  mediate death, their existence has been  little   consideied   A   careful   examina  tion- grievances should be a reason for  their demands and the misery ou whose  behalf they pleaded should be the justification for everything they did in  this town where labor, inarticulate so  long, had now found a voice and was  determined tliat her grievances should  find expression and be relieved.  (Cheeis.) They might have again to  fight the factory act crusade and they  would resist to the last the Invasion of  an unscrupulous plutocracy. Trade  unionists were seeking, not for gold  and territory, but for thnt human  treasure which exalted the finder and  from its accumulated . wealth spread  benefits, happiness and delight on all  who came within touch of Its fertilizing inlluence.   (Loud  cheers).  GOMPERS A STRONG MAN.  Incidental to 'the western trip of tlie  executive 'council of the A. F. of L.'  comes tlle old story that Samuel Gompers will not be re-elected at the next  convention at New Orleans in December. It is said that the national oflicers of several laige organizations have  already talked the matter over, and  have selected a new man for the head  of the labor movement/ of the country.  The man generally favored is James  Duncan, first vice-president, who, it is  believed, is more aggressive than Mr  Gompers.   "Sam" is used to this chargi  As we look around those loaded shelves  of "bargains" we find lepresented there  an inventory of human 1 grief, disappointment and losses It would be im-  I os&tble to estimate in dollars and  cents.���Ex.  MUST CONTROL THE MACHINE:.  Wm. Hill has said that the nincnine  should not be the muster, but the handmaiden of man; but there ls just perceptible the danger that, unless care is  taken now to guide and befriend and  bind him to ihe side of the people for  ever, the kind but blind giant may be  carried irretrievably captive into slavery by the monopolists, and man's most  powerful and dearest friend may come  to be regarded, and reasonably regarded, by millions of people as their  greatest enemy. ,   .

It is a notorious fact that few coal  miners reach the age of forty in good  health, even though they have the luck  to escape explosions due to bad ventilation or falls of rock due to insufficient timbering; a large proportion ot  them even in early manhood���having  worked In mines as  boys���suffer from  "miners'  asthma,"  or  from  consump-  t i  tion or other lung or    bronchial  dlS'  eases, produced by the breathing of  an- laden with coal-dust and mixed  with poisonous or suffocating gases, as  well as by the lack of sunshine and of  nourishing food to give their, bodies  normal recuperating power. ���  *��� Iii- order to" save iho thousands ot  lives annually sacrificed in mine "accidents" of all kinds it is necessary that  mines should at all times be amply ventilated, that plenty of proper supports  should be supplled.i and that only experienced men should be put in charge  of tlle work. Until workingmen can  muster up courage to run the/govern-,  ment of the country, laws for their  protection will not be enforced.  RALPH SMITH ARRIVES.  The Independent saw ex-President  Ralph Smith of the Trades and Labor  Congress yesterday. As to his objecting to again stand for the presidency,  he said that he had been four yenis  president, desiring to resign the second  term. But thc fact of not having credentials this year made him emphatically refuse the offer to stand. ,  "How about the attendance of delegates?"  "There were double the number of  delegates that had attended any pie-  vlous congress. , In fact lt was Just bc-  cotning an Important Institution, but  I am afraid that the changes made In  the constitution referring to representation will .very materially affect the  next congress. I desire, however, to  permit the new rule to operate without  prejudice, and 191 the results bo known  by experience. The only' way to convince some people of the foolishness of  a course1 Is to let thein run to the end  of it. ,  "My opinion is that tho changes in  tlie constitution on repie.seiitntlon will  now admit none but representatives of  local unions which are connected with  International bodies nnd unions dhectly  chnrleicd by congress not having un  intei national head."  JOHN BURNS SPEAKS.  In addressing the recent .trade union  congress at London, John Burns, M. P.,  sal dthat he hoped that their deliberations would result In a general improvement of the conditions of the  community. Might he suggest that  unity ln the woikshop must be backed  up by affection. In the municipal sphere  and each of them in their respective  spheies was to be supplemented, if they  were to secure the desired social  change, industrial amelioration, and  communal advancement, by the parliament of the United Kingdom? By  the agency of the workshop and the  municipal' authority they could utilize  parliament to develop to the -full the  capabilities of tlie municipality to  lighten the load of the poor. It might  be that they might do worse during the  next few years than copy the tolerant,  practical,  useful work  that  the  labor  HUMAN TREASURE.  John Burns, M. P., said at the congress just closed that in all his experience he had never seen a better  one. Let it maik an epoch in the history of trade unionism. The huge  modern aggregations of wealth were  conspiring to overthrow tlieni and to  Introduce slavery under the mask of  freedom, and oppression under tlie  mask of Industrial freedom. Labor  combinations were to bo smashed. Unscrupulous wealth and undisciplined  monopolies sought to rebarbanze society. Let them resolve that they  would -tolerate no commercial supremacy leared upon human misery. Let  their aim he neither goldflelds nor ter-  11 tory, but that human treasure which  exalteth the finder.  BARBERS' BALL.

It is worth noting in connection with  this 'and other possible shipment!, of  coal from Wales to the United States  that the Welsh miners' unions aie reported imitating the actions of the  western bituminous miners' unions in  sending small contributions of money  to tho anthracite miners' leaders to assist them in maintaining the present  great strike. The piesent strike seems  to be a 'good thing for the soft copl  miners at the west and for the Welsh  and Canadian coal'miners. Just how  long the hard coal mineis will be willing to suffer for tho benefit of theli  quasi friends in this and other countries is a question.���Bradstreets.  "A MODERN SIBERIA."  "A Modem Siberia" is the phrase  President Moyer, of the western Miners' Federation, used lo describe conditions at Fernie, B. C. He returned  from that region io ISLe J_i__f_3 CEoiaS  after settling one of the greau-jt strikes  in the history of the mining industry,  and he declared that the conditions imposed upon the men by the company  weie almost beyond' belief. The 3,000  men were called out for an eight-hour  day, and after a prolonged contest they  won. He says that thc company owns  everything in the entire mining camp  and exercises a tyranny nnd censorship  over all the men do and see. No individual Is allowed to set up any kind of  business. The company even controls  the newspapers the men shall read and ���  forbids certain types of papers.���Ex.  TRUSTS CONDEMNED.  The trades union congress at London  has passed a resolution declaring that  "the growth of gigantic capitalistic  trusts, with their enormous power of  controlling production, is injurious to  tlie advancement ot the working  classes, as by such combinations tho  prices ot commodities are raised, the  standard of comfort of the people can  be" reducedrthe" wm'kmen's-freedoni. eii"  dangered nnd national prosperity menaced."  CO-OPERATIVE BUILDERS.  The Society of Carpenters unci Joiners  of Great -Britain recently took a ballot  of its members upon the question of  whether or not the society should undertake house building on thu co-operative  principle. This shows a largo majority  iu favor of tlio proposal.

He  laid them upon thu tabic."abstractedly  placing them in elliptical form, with  the (limner for n head niul the dime for  -a tail piece.  "Looks like a comet, looks like a  -snake," he soliloquized, breaking from  his rellectiQiis upon the latent possibill-  :' tics of> 57 cents. lie became suddonly  conscious of a double analogy' between  the form of the row of coins and the  package that still lay upon tlio floor.  A comet was a sort of star, the returned manuscript from The Slellnr Magazine, and the story of the inniuisciipl  was the story of n woman and n snake.  He reflected with some pride lhat ll  was tlie most growsonie thing he had  ever done. He .swept up the coins nnd  stood with puckered brows gating at  the-steadfast eyes of the photograph.  A knock tit his door broke his reverie.  A stout, young Woman, of a business  like countenance, promptly accepted  his monosyllabic .Invitation lo enter.  "I'd like some money, please." she  said, with equal promptness, regarding  with apparent disfavor the youngiiii'.n.  who still had his eyes upon the photo  graph. /      . i  "So would I," replied  the indigent  Mr. Patterson.   He wheeled and confronted the blond collector of hi.s flat.  "You're a week behind," she said so  veroly.  "I can give you 57 cents on nccount,"  responded young Mr. Patterson, and  the coins reappeared. "That's evory  cent I have In the world.", ho .ndded pathetically. The eyes of the young woman not being sympathetic, he turned  his upon those of the picture girl. This  action apparently still further nettled  tlie collector.  "There were two gentlemen," she  said, emphasizing the last word, "look-  1 ing for n room today. They arc ready  to pay $4 for this. 1 sliall rent to them  from tomorrow. Of course you understand If you can't pay up"��� She  glanced significantly at Billy's.shabby  ���trunk:  the floor. As he turned again his eyes  mot those of the girl in the picture Upon the wall. The blood flowed into hi.s  pale face, niul he trembled ns he leaned  with clinched hands upon the table's  edge. Suddenly lie turned and flung  himself, face down, upon his bed. weep  ing with the bitterness of regret and  shame.  When tit last Billy Patterson sprang  j ui). he kicked over his chnlr and paced  the little room liko tin innocent man  lu a prison cell.  "My God," he said, staring upward,  'will the tide never turn?" But he  looked beyond the iron hook this time  straight Into the eyes of the girl.  He flung up tlie window and took n  deep draft of the cold night air. In  tlio deep hlue of the velvet void over  tlie great city of New York the golden  stnrs were shining..  In a frenzy of mingled courage nnd  hope ho hurriedly opened the half doz-  en packages.

An ample fortune enabled him to decline cases wliich less  fortunate young lawyers might hnve  been glad to take up.  He Imd already figured ln one or two  trials of considerable Importance, but  his practice was not large, uud his  principal occupation consisted In wondering about the pretty girl In tho oflice across the court. By n Judicious  expenditure of tips ninong the elevator  boys, wlio in turn'questioned the letter  currier, he finally discovered that her  name wns Maude Ktngdon and that  she was a stenographer for Massoy &  Keller, architects.  This Information, while of Interest,  did not materially aid him in forming  ber acquaintance. He could think of  no excuse for intruding on the architects, nnd Miss KIngdon wus not the  sort of girl one could get acquainted  with In the elevator.

But even this hope wns  dashed to the ground when In saying  goodby Massey expressed, a desire to  meet him ou returning from n business  trip that'would occupy several months.  He had about given up nil hope  when one afternoon'-, the young clerk  who formed his enlire otilce staff broke  in on his solitude.

Kitchener, vviitcs ' a friend of his,  possesses in a supreme degree a quality to ' which it is difficult to give  any other name than that of "fine  instinct." This quality he has  brought to bear not only on those  with whom he has had official dealings, but be hns evidently succeeded  in impressing his personality on men  who had hitherto been bitterly opposed to hiin.  The method which Lord Kitchener  seems to have employed in liis negotiations With the Doer loaders is one  which will commend itself to every  Englishman. Ho first tnjighj, them  not only to respect him thoroughly,  but to trust him implicitly, and then  proceeded to let them understand  tbat he was not unwilling to nccoid  to thoni in his turn a,full measure  of confidence and respect.  Yet how different is this from many  of the views which liave been expressed of tho gi eat general b.v those who  have worked with him.

If you take a careful glance at the  finger nails of certain people you  will observe that the nails,-, instead  ol being smooth, are grooved di'iib-  bed lengthwise from the, business end  to the quick.

BOX.  an easy matter: for the . latter to  make a most serious error, is admitted, especially iiow that the railway companies to a large extent  have five,train orders, where a few  years ago one would suffice. The  majority of operators must act as  station agents., tickets agents,  switchmen, baggage men. etc , and  at the same tune keep their cms open  for any call from the train despatch-  cr fui train orders, copy the latter,  very, frequently:on five, different forms  and at the same time remember' all  as the;different"trains affected thereby arrive and depait. With so many  details to attend to, it is quite an  easy thing for an operator to forget  a certain order and allow a train to  pass a station in the face of nnother  train), unless some means are taken  to remind him of what,orders be.has  on hand. But it must be said in  justice to our railway companies tbat  they are willing and anxious to adopt  any nevv appliances whicli will assist  in the preservation of life and property, says The Montreal Witness.  Mr. Ii. Peterson, Gland Trunk Railway agent, at St. Hilaire, Que., has  had patented a device which has for  its object the prevention of collisions  caused by operatois forgetting what  train orders they have in their possession. The device, it may bo said,  briefly,: consists, of a convenient box  or 'receptacle-, foi"train order blanks,  placed immediately behind a semaphore or signal board lever which virtually locks "its'"contents'(the order  blanks) >till the lever is rnised from  across it, this process puts the semaphore or signal board at 'danger,'  thus preventing an operator accepting train oi dors for dtiiv cry before  it is '..sot set. ���'...��� Should an attempt be  made to lower the seninpho're or signal board lever belore the object of  the extracted order-blank has been  accomplished and the blank returned  to the- box thc operator is win nod by  an electric bell. Tlie bell also rings  should the semaphore or signal  board fall to properly respond to tha  lever.  ' Mr, Peterson has his patent in  working condition at St. Hilaire,  and has had it examined by the  Grand Tiunk Ihiilwny officials, who  express themselves favorably. It is  not at all unlikely that the device  will be adopted by a good ..ninny American railways, as well as our Canadian railways, as soon as they become familiar witb it.  nianT kev. ; George nr.vcE.  ulty, .University of .Manitoba, v.Winni?  peg.   and Moderator  of  General    Assembly of the Presbyterian; Church in  Canada.  line Mrlkinir. .Xilvmit:��m��.

The most flourishing Industries in the  countiy to-day are those in which trade  unionism has become most perfected.  Labor cannot afford to so into poll-  tics in a half-hearted way.

Apropos of the longshoremen's strikeat  Seattle, tlie Union Kecord of that city  says: 'Longshore work, nt any timo is; a  strenuous occupation. The worjc is  hard, disagreeable and intermittent,  Every man out of a job gravitates to the  water front, and tliu result is tlio continual struggle, uu the part of men who  depend on the loading and unloading of  vessels for a living all the time to obtain  decent pay or rational hours. To" be  competent in this calling rcipiiris  experience in this kind of work as it.  docs in oilier kinds. Thero'aru a great  many men wlio have devoted years to becoming competent in this culling. Tliey  ttrj residents of the city, and t buy and  tbeir families depend upon waterfront  employment fur a living. They are tlie  men who composu the 'Longshoremen's  Union, tbu chief objects of which arc to  seeuru reasonably steady work at fair  wages, that tbey may continue to be  good citizens and rear sons to be tbe  same. Hut the Bullishness of man  operates against them more directly  than any otlier class of workmen. On  the other bnnd, they have to contend  against tliu ne'er-do-wells who will work  a day to earn a fow cents to dissipate  upon, and on the other hand a class of  employers (well-paid agents of great  corporations)-who look upon working-  men us merely beasts of burden, and  treat them accordingly. That's' why  tliere have been ninny strikes on tlie  waterfront, and it's tbo cause of the  present one. Stripped of all line-spun  technicalities tliat interested people seek  to inject into the trouble, the 'longshoremen's strike is simply a light on  their part to maintain their prerogatives  as men; on the part of tliu shipping  companies, to make of tbeir; laborers  semi-slaves. The union longshoremen  is tliu better citizen tbu better wages' lie  receives. For that reason (leaving out  all considerations of humanity���which  corporations do not recognize) the longshoremen deserve to win thoir strike,  and every loyal citizen hopes that thev  will.

There  would bo one,, quarter less money   in  circulation;   tliat   would   reduce   tlie  demand for farm produce and manufactured goods oiic-fotirtli.   In other'words  would   bankrupt   one-quarter   of   the  business men, it would stagnate trade  and place mortgages on the farms.   If  wages were reduced one-half instead of  one-quarter it would   be   tliat   much  worse.   Tlie Uniteil^tates Bureau  of  Statistics is authority for the statement  Unit union  men  receive '20 -per   cent,  more in  wages   than non-union men.  Trade unions always maintain a high  wage  rate.   When   tlie   mechanic  or  laborer receives an increase of wages be  spends tliat increase over the merchant's  counter.   Increase   tbe   wages of   tlio  producers in Canada sny only ten  per  cent, and you have one-tenth more money  circulating in the country than formerly.  Localities where organization of labor  is lacking are always recognized as poor  places for business, whereas on the other  hand cities tli at are thoroughly organized  arj always conceded to bo progressive  centres.  Every advance of wages gai nud by  organization benefits the merchant, and  every reduction in'the hours of labor  means tiie opportunity for more artiztins  to secure employment.  The trade union is: the only form of  organization that has raised thc rate of  wages and reduced the number of hours  in tlie working day. These are facts  that business men should realize, the  trade union should always receive tlieir  support. Low wages and long hours aro  alvviiys-a inoiiacc-to-biisiness-and-the  trade union stands irrevocably opposed  to both.  1 Interesting Items ?  I *      For Week-End  Shoppers.

LARSON, Prop. 1 I'i  THE RUSSIAN OLIVE.  A MoNt  Bcnntlfnl  Ornnmentnl Tree.  In Favor ln the Weht.  "Who  is  figuring  on  planting  the  bcuutlful   Russian  ollvo as nn  ornamental this spring?" asks the Denver  Field and Farm.   The tree Is liolaideally ehengnus nnd the speeies nngustl-  folia.  It belongs to the same family as  the buffalo berry, and tliey will graft  together. It was introduced In the west  nbout 1S70, and tlie llrst trees planted  nre still standing, so far ns wc are nble  to learn.   It Is growing In the higher  elevations of the sand hills of northwestern Nebraska, where It wus planted, with other trees, iniiiiy years ago.  The companion trees nre nil gone, nnd  only these survive.  Isolated specimens  make   spreading,   round   topped   but  somewhat  Irregular  trees.   In   hedge  forms it grows very much like the gray  ore fence willow.   Its follnge Is silvery  white like the buffalo berry, and with  its glossy, deep brown bark it makes  a fine tree for the Inwii. It is partially  thorny, but not to the same extent as  thc osage orange or honey locust. These  thorns in many and perhaps In most  cases nre the spurs tliat bear the blossoms and fruit.  The berry is elongated  and is nbout the size of nn ordinary  pea, covered with u sweet pulp which  when removed  leaves  the  true  seed  nbout twice as long and thick as a  good grain of wheat.  The seed is not  easy to germinate.  The wood Is light  nnd brittle.  When in bloom, the flowers,  which  are  insignificant, are' extremely fragrant, much like those of  the  flowering currant   The Russian  olive will grow readily from cuttings.  We have uot tried this, but will do so in  thn spring. It doos not sprout from the  ���roots.  The plants enn now be .bought  from most western nurserymen.  A GREAT RECORD.  A.

It Is nn oft repeated piece of advice,  yet as often unheeded, that fall flowering shrubs require winter pruning,  nnd usually severe pruning brings the  best results, remarks Median's Monthly-  The familiar example of such pruning is the large headed, hardy hydrangea. An uuprnned plant, especially if  old, makes a weak growth and small,  numerous heads. A plant of nny age  pruned back to a strong bud above the  old wood shoots forth with immense  vigor, and the heavy cane thus Induced mnkes a lnrge head. How difficult it Is to bring oneself to cut off  nearly all the wood just made so nicely, but how much harder to see a  weakly .plant doing Its best to sup-  -porUalLthc-old^twigs-and_strung new,  growth ns well!      ������ *��� ���  The nlthiea is another shrub to be  considered In the same class���in fnct,  all fall blooming plants. ^  MEHOEDES-JT3LIP S riETEKTJE,  ed for by~Professor nncoker of the  Minnesota experiment stntion and who  Is ulso woll known to be entirely reliable by the editors of this paper.

It may  menu almost anything, hb reference to  lhe definition of sore In n dictionary  will show you, and nn ointment that  would be good for sore tents arising  from one cause ls not necessarily good  for all. The term Is perhaps'most frequently applied to chronic erythema, u  disease of the skin of the teats In  which tliere nro chips or cracks. It  mny occur under a variety of circumstances, but the trouble Is mainly eon-  lined to newly calved animals. In  cows with very delicate skins this disorder is very liable to develop and Is  ditlieult to cure owing to the necessity  for regulnr milking. Sometimes Imperfect removal of the milk on account of  the'soreness of the tents gives rise to  a worse trouble in the shape of mam-  uitlis and loss of one or more quarters.  Wet milking nnd leaving the teals wet  in co.d weather is n fertile cause of  soreuoss. The proper thing to do is'to.  treaCctieh ease on Its merits, but perhaps tho most useful dressing to keep  on hand for general purposes is camphor and older ointment. Any chemist  will supply you wilh such n compound,  or it may be made by mixing half an  ounce of finely powdered camphor with  four ouncog of older ointment. Auothei useful dressing, especially when  Hies are troublesome, is glycerin and  carbolic ncid. In many cases it is necessary to draw off the mill; by means  of a heat tube or siphon. A laxative  dose, twelve to sixteen ounces of ep-  som salts, is useful7In eases of Hrythe-  mn mnuimillnvum.���Farm nnd Home.  New Crcnmerleii For loivn.  We nre advised by several creamery  supply salesmen traveling In Iowa that  the prospects for new creamery buildings this spring arc better thnn for  several years, says Creamery Journal.  A number of new factories are now  under wny, nnd as soon ns spring opens  It will keep the salesmen busy visiting  the points which are good "prospects."  No one seems to understand the cause  of tho boom wliich is surely coining, as  it would seem tlint the high price of  feed would be a discouraging feature.  But the farmers have tbe creamery fever, and tliere is good business in sight  for the creamery supply houses.  Digest Tlic-nc Facts.  Tho heavy producing cow ls whnt  concerns the dairyman most, says nn  exchange. Suppose you have n cow  that produces liiS pounds of butter a  year at 17 cents a pound, she would  bring $25.50. This is almost thc-cost of  the feed. On the other hand, if ynu  keep a cow that will produce 300  pounds of butter iu n year at 17 cents  a pound she will net you .731. Think  about this nnd road, mark, learn nnd  digest these facts.  A Darn For the Cows.  Don't keep cows ln same barn with  otlier stock. Time Is money, therefore  the bnrn should be convenient for  cleaning out. for feeding und for getting cows In nnd out. It Bhould allow  an abundance of sunshine.  BEAN GROWING.  Cheap and Sure Slt-tlio��U of Secnrtns  Sntisfnctor^   Crop*.  Good crops of beans cannot be raised  on poor ground. Beans are hard on the  lnnd, and no field should grow two  crops in succession. - Good crops of  beans are grown every year on wheat,  oats nnd corn stubble ground, but  yenrs of observation and experience  have taught me that the ileitis on  which beans enn be grown cheapest  and surest, If properly handled, are  those that were pastured pr In meadow  the previous season. Such Ileitis tnke  less labor to keep the crop free from  weeds. They sliould he plowed parly,  while there Is plenty of moisture, rolled nnd drugged often enough to keep  down everything green until planting  time, wlien thc soil will he firm, moist  nnd mellow, the ideal condition for thc  bean to germinate. Such partial summer -fallowing is the only wny to main,  tniu sullleiont moisture to enrry tlio  plant vigorously through nny dry period that often overtakes It in its early  stages, snys n Michigan correspondent  of American Agriculturist.  Mnny farmers raise excellent crops  on stubble ileitis' with no more nnd  sometimes less labor, plowing the  ground only in time to fit for planting.  With plenty of moisture this will do.but  with the droughts of June thnt our locality Is subject to this method Is risky.  The best beans should be selected for  seed. The pen variety is the only one  wo raise for markot. The planting  senson Is from June 5 to 25: The common grain drill Is used for this work,  drilling In rows twenty-eight .Inches  apart... One-half.'to three-fourths of n  bushel to tlie acre, according tb condition of the soil, Is planted.  With ordinary favorable weather the  crop attains sufficient growth in ten  days to be cultivated. If conditions nre  ''unfavorable'nnd the plant starts slowly, it would be well to run over the  ground with a spike tooth drag to keep  the weeds from starting or to mellow  the soil If It hns been crusted. The tool  generally used for cultivating is the  two horse wheel cultivator of nny  slnndnrd mnke. If the soil hns been  properly lifted, two rows cnu be cultivated nt once, ten acres being un easy  day's work.  Cultivation should be done once a  week uutil the bean begins to form.  Some good farmers will not cultivate  nfter the blossoms appear. My own  experience has taught me that cultivation, though It be so late so ns tear  apart the vines between tlie rows, never lessens the yield, nnd further, as  most of the bean ground ls sown to  wlieat, it is n partial preparation for  the wheat Beans grow rapidly, and  three to Ave cultivations are sufficient  A STRAWBERRY BED.  How to Prepare It���AVhen to Plant.  Innccts and Cover.  The strawberry requires a deep.'.rich  soil.   Prepare the ground  thoroughly  before planting, as.this is important for  hest results, snys Orange Judd Farmer.  After planting do not let your cultivating be with the object of keeping the  weeds out, but cultivate to keep the  ground   loose   and   mellow,   and   the  weeds will have no chance to gain a  foothold.  In setting thc plants do not  spread thc roots near thc surface nor  twist them Into n wnd. but spread them  out and allow them to reach straight  down Into the soil, nnd press the fresh  earth solid ngulnst the roots.   If Is n  good plan to clip the lower ends of the  roots before setting, ns they stnrt new  growth  more readily.   Clipping early  ftinners Is not necessary nnd should  not bo done by Inexperienced growers.

Tho Armour company of Chicago put in evidence a sworn formula  for manufacturing the stuff, says Dairy and Creamery. Taking this formula  and the market cost of the materials,  the estimate of the cost of 100 pounds  of olcomnrgarlne Is as follows: Thirty-  four pounds of neutral lard nt 3% cents  a pound, 51.32; 27 pounds of oleomargarine oil at '&\<�� cents n pound, 84 "a  cents; 12 pounds of cottonseed oil nt 4  cents n pound, 4S cents; IS pounds of  milk nt 1 cent a pound, IS cents; ll  pounds of snlt nt about 1 cent a pound.  8V4 cents, making 100 pounds cost only  $2.01.

Chulkcr, a  woll known resident'ol this place,  lias authorised tho publication of a  letter containing some very startling  statements.  Those who know Mr. Chalker will  not ask any proof of the truth of  any statement hu makes, but, to convince those who do not know him,  lie hus announced thut ho is prepared to substantiate in every detail,  the truth of his published statement,  whicli is as follows :���  "It is with pleasure that I certify  to the merits of Dodd's Kidney Pills.  "1 wus luid up with Kidney -trouble  and wus so .bad that I could not do  a day's work. My buck was very  sore, 1 had heavy, aching arms, dull  bloated eyes. I was very weak and  much reduced,in weight.  "Aftor 1 had usod six boxes of  Dodd's Kidney Pills I was ton pounds  heavier. I often wondered about the  powerful virtue of this medicine. I  do not know anything about what  Dodd's Kidney Pills aro said to cure  but I know a great deal about what  thoy will actuully do for lame back  and Kidney Troublo, and I can prove  it.  "They are worth their weight in  gold to any one suffering as I suffered. The six boxes of Dodd's Kidney  Fills cured me completely and there  has been no return of tho old troublo.  That-is ovor three years ago, and I  still enjoy good health."  This is, indeed, n very strong testimonial for Dodd's Kidney Pills and  one w hich will have very great weight  with all who have tho pleasure of  Mr. Chalker's acquaintance or friendship. 0  Dodd's Kidney Pills have made  ninny friends and are to-day, without doubt, tho most popular family  medicine  Thc voters'  lists    for Paris as re-  \iscd show the total number of cloc-  tois in the'capital to be 603,279, as  | compared with 5r>0,691 last year, an  increase nf 51,488.

Baby's Own Tablets  promptly check and cure diarrhoea,  stomach troubles, .cholera' infantum  and other hot weather ailments.  Thoy also give relief to toothing  troubles, and prevent tho ailments  that come at this period. Every prudent mother should keep a oox of  Baby's Own Tablets in thc house at  all times. No other medicine acts so  promptly and so surely, and tlie Tab-  lots are guaranteed to contain no  opiate or harmful drug. They always do good and cannot possibly do  harm, and crushed to a powder you  can give them to the smallest, sickliest infant. Mrs. Geo. Foote, St.  Thomas, Ont., says : "My'baby was  troubled with diarrhoea and was very  cross and restless, and got so little  sleep 1 hardly know what to do with  her. I got a box of Baby's Own Tablets and after giving hor somo her  bowels became regular and she could  sleep well. I think the Tablets a  splendid medicine."
