is a copy of ttie* letter addressed to the

J "I have been instructed'to notify, you
that on1 account of the action taken by
thei mills In refusing to supply lumber,
the Builders' exchange have decided to
save themselves' from further loss to
close' down 'work on Wednesday, the

j-The-dty ofT-S!ocan_bonused-an_On-
taflo lumber outfit to the tune of several
thousand dollars,'and in the course of
time a large.mill was completed. The
Ontario manager sent to the coast for a
gang of Chinamen to work ln the mill,
but when the celestials' reached thc
head of Siocan lake they heard that
there was a large crowd of Slocanltes
awaiting to give them a vociferous welcome.' The, Chinks suddenly became
"wised up" and ooncluded not to finish
tho Journey. All of w hlch leads ono to
think that there are mining camps ln
which tho heathen Chinee has no desire
to do bUHlness on sober second thought.
Unless the factory hands and the mill
owners come to some settlement soon,
in their differences, this "sympathetic
lockout.^for thafis all it Is/wlll extend
to all branches of the building trades,
and in the course of a week or ten days
from 1,200 to 1^400 men will be idle. The
building trades ls ln no way responsible
for this state of affairs, and furthermore' they won't stand for it.' This is

Items from Victoria  By Our Own Correspondent.  COMMENT ON TRUSTS.  In  this age of so-called  democracy,  we are getting into  tlie thrall of thc  most relentless system of economic oligarchy that history thus far records.  That capital from which most of us,  ��� directly or lndlrectly.'get-our breitd and  butter is becoming the most undemocratic, inhuman and atheistic of all the  heathen divinities. It breeds children  only to devour the bodies-of some, and  the souls of others, and to put out the  spiritual eye-sight of the rest. In spite  of the historic1 campaign for liberty, In  ���spite of the achievements of Christianity, there has never been a time since  Adam was born when the individual  counted for so little or availed so little  .as today.  .Compared with any worthy conception  of what society must become If life is  to be tolerable, the socialistic Indictments against our civilization- are essentially sound. As abstract propositions those diagnoses expose with .'ip  propr'iate truth the ghastly Inequalities  and injustice which our present social  order sanctifies. It ls a literal and cardinal fact that our present economic  system cries to heaven for rectification,  It stultifies human nature. It nullifies  tlie purpose of God." Then men who  denounce present society have profound  reason for their complaints. - We are in  the midst of the most bewildering labyrinth of social entanglements in which  the human rnce has wandered up to  -date.   ,-,      -    - *''_' (' ,     i . ,i  At  thc  same   time   these  facts  are  wringing such involuutary cries'of pain  from some, and'such artificial description and characterization from others.  They' arc  provoking  others   to  bitter  -and-violent denunciation, and inciting  .others to such.   Visionary nnd visclous  .schemes of readjustment that'we find  -in these intellectual.symptoms ofour  ^social  disease are added  complication  and  aggravation of  the "ills.      There  seems to be no practical alternative be  tween, on the one hand,  swelling the  -clamor and wild and-Incoherent revolt,  .and  on  the other hand,'' giving one's  moral  support' to', conservatism, - most  falsely and fatally so-called, which Intensifies tho evils by denying that they,  -exist.   If you will heed the eymptoms  rfrom bank'to  office  and factory, and  railroad headquarters and dally press,  you have discovered that the very men  who are making these combinations are  beginning  lo  be afraid of  their own  shadows.      These very business men,  who claim to have a monopoly of common sense, have. involved .themselves  :and all the rest of us in n grim tragedy  of errors.   They are already beginning  whutevcr thut tho vast majority of  capitalists aro good capitalists. Tliey  operate strictly within tho rules of the  game. Nevertheless capitalism Is not a  good game, and it Is our business to see  tho reason why. The whole programme  of our civilization turns at last on the  accumulation of capital. A programme  for Christian civilization would turn  lather on its effects upon the quality  of men that civilization shall produce.  We have .turned moral values upside  down. We nre making men the n\cans  of making capital, whereas capital is  only tolerable when lt is simply ,the  means of making men. It would be Infinitely more for' human weal It every  dollar of wealth should be cleaned from  the earth, If we could have Instead of  it, industry anil honesty and justice,  than to be,led much,further Into this  devil's dance of capitalism.  to ask on the quiet* how It will all end.

' '  The general officeis of-the Katlonul  Manufacturers' association were instructed to report a plan of legal defence against picketing, boycotting and  the obtaining ,of injunctions, such as  several labor organizations In the west  have obtained recently to the embarrassment of tlieir employers. These employers had supposed .that the injunction was peculiarly their weapon-with  which they-couldi always"subdue rebellious workingmen, and, ��� lo, It appears that' It' Is an equally effective  weapon by .which the ^workers 'can resist tlielr tyrants. Now"the masters will  have as much to say against government' by Injunction as heretofore has  capitalistic .pupers, "anarchistic ravings" against law and order. "It makes  a great difference whose ox is gored."  Whether by master ot-.-workmen.

Tiie annual statement of the secretary  showed that there were '23 unions alllllated with the council, averaging 0"  accredited members. The balance sheet  showed the receipts for the year were  $351.34, and there wim $120 cash In hand.  The civic representative committee  reported that the city council had not  appointed either of the gentlemen  whose linmeK hnd been submitted for  representation on the Provincial Jubilee  hospital board.  The secretary of the H. C. Fishermen's union, Vancouver, wrote expressing tho wish that llsherinen wait until  the settlement of the present trouble  with the canners before going to' tlie  Fraser. s  The Journeymen Rakers' union wrote  protesting against the time of-the council being taken up discussing politics  and socialism, and threatening to withdraw their delegates from the council  unless that body lives up to its constitution.  The Typographical union also protested against the discussion of uolitlcs  and socialism in the council, and suggesting the passage of measures to keep  lt clear of partizan politics.  Tho communication was laid on the  table till the first meeting in August.  The meeting adjourned till Wednesday  nlsht.  NEW FACTORY1.  Another Jncrense Is reported in the  number of Victoria's industrial establishments, a now sash and door factory  being in course of erection at the Say-  ward mills. It is to be built on a wharf  close to the Point Ellice bridge.   -  A. A. Streather, of Victoria, B. C, was  elected seventh vice-president of the  Dominion' Letter Carriers' association  at the annual meeting held at Winnipeg  on Wednesday.  In consequence of the strike now on in  Vancouver, considerable work in the  Terminal City, it Is expected, will llkely  be turned over to Victorians. Mention  was made a few days ago to that on  the Princess Victoria, and now comes  news of negotiations being underway  with a Victoria firm for the furnishing  of the free library.   So says the Times.  VOTE FOR WORKINGMEN. ���  lt is fortunate for the workers that  the employers have come Into the open  and publicly proclaimed tlieir intention.  The working men know now what to  expect and it-will be their own fault if  they permit their enemies to triumph;  we say enemies advisedly for the manufacturers declare that unionism is to  be wijicd out. Tliey have on tlielr side  the courts and the hirelings whom they  own iu ihe legislature. But tho working men have tlie power of numbers,  who, by their votes, can elect their own  nominee!-', and It is to be hoped that the  recent mail attack of President Parry  will do moie than any amount of propaganda' work to consolidate workers  of all kinds. Vote only for working  men candidates.  UNION  BARBER SHOPS.     .  John Sllngerland���714 Robson street.  Army and Navy���33S Granville street.  Elite���617 Hastings street, west.

A surgical operation in Indianapolis  made normal the brain ot a boy born  wilh criminal instincts. We-ought to  operate on some ot our city governments.  They say any mini In lhe United  States can be president. Gosh! What  a lot of lobsters there are in that country who seem to prefer working for two  dollars a day.  The statement that American makers  of automobiles have outstripped tlielr  European competitors may be true, but  it would sound more natural to say that  they had run over them.  The milliners are joining in the crusade against the decorating of women's  hats with stuifed song birds. It is evident that ilie milliners liave found out  how to make ribbons just as expensive.  A New Brunswick clergyman says  there are no female, angels. We wish  to remind ,th!s parson tliat there are  female angels In every household and  beside every sick bed In British Columbia.  The  medical  association  suggests  a  monument to the doctor who, chasing  the cholera germ, first said to the mos  quito, "Tag, you're it."   Any man who  slaps the mosquito deserves a monu  ment.  There are many obstacles ln the poe  try line and long-haired verse writers  have to be careful of "feet." It is not  always "poetic feet" but the editor's  feet that the would-be poet must be  careful of.  A Now York amusement man has  taught_a_monkey_ to.l'lnnp-thojoop'ljn  an automobile. Verily, It takes man's  best to keep ahead of the monk.  A grain of sand in a man's make up  Is worth two In the sugar.  The world Is to liave a new intoxicant  made from the 'i'i root, wlilch Is abund  nnt In the Hawaiian Islands.

A southern pastor has likened the  womnn who plays bridge whist to a  negro crap shooter. As both games are  gambling pure and simple���though one  Is played In a parlor mid the other In  an alley���the reverend gentleman Is not  far astray.  A court decision says. "lho7right to  streets are equal between drivers and  pedestrians." This Is sound law. The  "pedestrian," however, will continue to  sprint, duck, dodge, stop, stait, hop,  skip and Jump out ot the way with  their old accustomed celerity, born of  long practice and stimulated by the  Instinct of self-preservation.  Trades and Labor Congress of Canada  Appeals to International Unions to  Present a Solid From,       *���  OTTAAVA, Out., June 27. IMS.  To Trades and Labor Councils and International   Local   Trade   Unions   In  Canada, Greeting:  Fellow Workers and Hrothers,���The  time has arrived In the history of organized labor in Canada when a step  in advance must be taken In order to  meet the aggressive methods of those  opposed to the union of workmen. For  many years the trade union movement  has followed beaten tracks, discussed  the same questions, pioposed the same  remedies and received the same rebuffs',  but a new departure has occurred in  tlie ranks of those opposed to us���a departure that must be met without delay  or else the present status of trades unions and their members will be changed  to  their detriment.  The great fault of organized labor in  the past has bei.ii that it has kept its  eyes closed to the methods adopted by  those among the employing classes who  oppose our legitimate aims. Recent developments have shown the necessity  of an immediate awakening, and your  body is requested therefore, to give its  prompt consideration to the requests  and proposals contained in this circular.  The trend of the day is towards union,  and tlie employing classes have, as  usual, taken early notice and advantage  of the fact and have united into a compact body, ostensibly for innocent objects, but in reality to ring the death  knell of trades unionism. Thus there  are organizations like the Employers'  association, National Founders' association, the International Metal Trades association and others of the kind.  Though these -bodies come to us with  sweet words in their mouths, their actions declare so loudly as to make plain  their object, that their real Intent is  aggressive antagonism to organized labor. No better proof of this is required  than the strenuous support given recently to the pernicious legislation in-  tioduced in the senate, at Ottawa, for  the exclusion of the oillcers and the  dismemberment of international unions.  A united front was presented by these  bodies and their attitude was a striking lesson to the representatives of organized labor- present at the discussion  of the bill.   Then what is to be done?  Stated shortly and plainly,' the one  luntui-e emphasized is the absolute necessity of organized labor in Canada becoming welded into one compact body  so as to be a unit upon questions affecting the interests of wage-earners.  There is a lamentable lack of unity In  this regard, and our very existence now  depends upon an immediate alteration  of this state of affairs. The Trades and  Labor Congress of Canada must represent organized labor for legislative purposes and the need of the' day is therefore, to strengthen congress In every  way possible. AVitli labor a solid phalanx, more respect will be paid to its  representations, more weight be attached to its arguments and more beneficial  results will follow its efforts.  Your body may, perhaps, not be in a  position tliat calls for action in the way  suggested, but. it ��� not, then we urge  you with all the emphasis we can bring  to bear, to do your utmost to urge labor bodies that are now in affiliation  with the congress to lose no time In be-  comlng affiliated.       There are today  Some peoplo will do anything on earth  for the sako of gaining a little cheap  newspaper notoriety.   A society woman  many unions that, though afilliatcd  with , their international organizations,  liave not become affiliated with congress, and to these bodies wc point out  that, by a recent decision of tlie execu  live or thc American Federation ot Labor (with which International bodies  are federated) all locals In Canada,  whether alllllated with international  unions or not, not all federal unions,  are directly urged to become attached  to the congresH without delay.  There Is thus unity uf opinion upon  the necessity for this action, and what  Is now required Is a unity of action  (for,legislative purposes) ns well as a  unity of opinion.  Do not delay taking action in tills  matter, but follow the example of employers and net at once.   ���  Send applications for allllliition to P.  M.
