A  I  FEW evenings ago a lady at one of the summer hotels ip.the Catskills told me'a long-  tale of woe about the sufferings she had endured  * with her various servant girls. One after another  she had been obliged sto discharge .them, she said  for slovenliness.dishonesty, impudence, carelessness  or general incompetence.  "I have tried several different nationalities^" she  said hopelessly, "and they are all alike. I have  read everything in the magazines on how to manage  servants, but every theory seems to crumble to  pieces when-1 try it. lam sure I cannot see any  possible method of solving the servant problem."  "May I ask what wages you pay?!' I inquired.  1 "Three dollars a week, and of course she has the  same board as we do, and a nice room,", replied the  lady with a little embarrassment. -  "That would be about equal k> seven dollars a  week in cash," I remarked. "Allowing that you  gave your servant a holiday every Sunday, her'pay  would amount to about eight cents an hour.  Many a ten-year-old news boy or bootblack ^makes  more money than that. Do .you think it is entirely ���  reasonable to expect perfection from a worker to  whom you pay a nickel'every three quarter's of 'an  hour?" ���  If the lady had appeared pleased at these suggestions, which she was not, I should have proceeded  1 to tell her that the only way to solve the servant  girl problem is to organize the ^servants into unions  and raise wages fifty per cent. This would wipe"  out the stupid'ones and elevate the others; by giving., them a pride in-their work. It would give  tliem self-respect, which is the first and most indispensable of all" the virtues.   ...'.'  The work of a servant is all" skilled work. Any  one who does not think so has merely to try it for  a day to be convinced. Yet the great majority of  servants ,receive no more for; their labor than if  tliey were ��� common laborers, fresh from Ellis  Island. If-fheir wages were higher it woule not be  long before training schools for servants would be  established and a high level of competence maintained by all who held diplomas.  When Dickens wrote his'book, "Martin 'Chuzzle-  wit," every reader was,disgusted with the drunken  incompetence and brutality of "Saircy Gamp" and  "Betsy Prig," the two sick-nurses who robbed' the  sick of everything eatable and drinkable, and even  took away.the pillow from under the patient's head.  But, the fact was that those nurses were "paid only  sixty cents a day for twelve hours' work���five cents  an honr. Was it any wonder that they were lazy  and dihsonest and brutal and all the rest of it?  About forty years ago Florence Nightingale became a nurse.   Her parents were wealthy and influential, and her action was considered .extradaor-.,  ���   dinary-   But by degrees she lifted .up the  whole  profession of nursing, founded a  training school,  and made nursing a popular profession among  ladies of education and refinment.' - Today a trained'  nurse holds her diploma like a doctor and commands a salary of from twenty to-sixty dollars a  week'   The'nurse problem  has been solved and  points out the way in which the servant girl ques- '  tion can be settled. ��� . .  When any class of workers is poorly paid and  oyerworked, the'work .done is sure'to be unsatistac-  tory. How can it be otherwise? If you plant,an  orchard in rocky soil, expose it to much cold  and little moisture, can you reasonably expect it to  bear good fruit? So far as his work is concerned,  every 'humau being is like a fruit tree. Give him  the proper conditions under which good work can  be produced, and he will do good work.  This is one of the many reasons why unionism  should be upheld by employers as well as by wage-  workers. Every influence ��� which educates the  worker and increases his self-respect adds to his  value as a producer as well as his worth as a citizen  of this Nation. ���������- ���,'���-"���-  B. ft'nuilEHT lOAJf AUD  ���'���V'SAVMCO;  ���'  AQthb'rlied Capital ��� 110,000,000  Subscribed Caultal ��� -  1/00,000  Aiaeu Over ���    ��� .. ���     800,000  Head Offloe, 321 Cambie Btttet,  VancouT.r, B.C.

The oflicers and members ot the local  unions of the Team Drivers' International .union have been formally notified  that at the Joint meeting held at Niagara Falls, N. T., on August 3���14, tlie  Team Drivers' International union and  the Teamsters'   National   union were  amalgamated   into   one   organization,  which is now known as the International Brotherhood of ,Teamster3. The  two organizations will continue to op,  erate as heretofore until October lst,  1903. , On and after that date all business of the local unions will be transacted through the general office of.the  International-^Brotherhood   of    Teamsters.     E. L. Turley, of Indianapolis,  will  be  the  secretary-treasurer.     By  this amalgamation,   both   the    Team  Drivers' union and the Teamsters' National union will lose their Identity* and  in their stead one grand organization  of teamsters, and being all under one  banner, energy and means, will not be  wasted in unprofitable contention. The  new .organization bids fair to be one  of the strongest on this continent in  the very near future.  Cornelius P. Shea,* who was elected  President pf the International' Broth-  hood of Teamsters and Helpers at Niagara Falls, Is 35 years old .and is a native of Boston. - , He is general business  agent of the General Teamsters' union  of Boston, and ls now serving his second term as president of the Teamsters'  Joint Council of Boston. ' During Mr.  Shea's term of office the Boston teamsters have gained the S-hour work-day,  au increase in wages of $2 a week and  weekly paydays. He was one of the  leaders In the .movement 'to. amalgamate the two factions, taking a prominent part in the preliminary meetings  which brought unity to tlie two ranks  of the teamsters of this country. He  Is said to be a man of broad and liberal  ideas and a conscientious and safe leader. ' i  Edward L. Turley, of Chicago, secretary-treasurer of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters and Helpers, is  a native of Illinois. .He was born in  Lincoln 42 years ago and has been a  resident of Chicago for,the past fourteen years. He has held the office of  secretary-treasurer of tlie Teamsters'  National union of Ameiica since its formation, in January, 1900. representing  the Hack and Cab-Drivers' union of  Chicago at the convention, held In Chicago. At both annual conventions of  that body held since, he was re-elected  without opposition. When Mr: Turley  first took the office on behalf of the  National union, but seven local unions,  with 3.500 members, were affiliated: today the same organization hns 93 subordinate unions, with 45,000 members.

I  THE UNION MAN'S STANDARD.  A   "walking   delegate" or   business  ***A>*>^*A*VV>^Vw^rVV^WWW��VVVWVV*>A-WVvW,  LABOR    DAT    PROCLAMATION  To all Trades and Labor Organizations  and the Public In General: ���  The first Monday In September of  this year will be observed as Labor  Day by the Trades and Labor Council.  Upon this day the breadwinners of all  classes turn, out to express their appreciation for this all-important event,  and take part in labor's national holiday.  This being the joint celebration of  Victoria, Nanalmo, New Westminster  and Vancouver, it is hoped that in magnitude -and-briiliancy~it_wlll_excel_all  previous demonstrations in the history  of the council.  All alllllated trades are most earnestly  requested to participate in the great industrial parade and as our object is certainly a noble and worthy one in celebrating this day, the marshalling of our  forces is not only a duty but a true  sentiment of unionism and a Just appreciation of the day we celebrate.  GEO. DOWNEY,  Chairman Parade Committee.  agent of the Stonecuters' union in New  York city has just been sentenced a  term-of five years and a half In the  penitentiary. He was convicted of  extorting contributions from employers  for settling strikes. Worse than this,  was the fact brought out by a letter  from Jotin Mitchell that he had kept  for himself and squandered about $1,000  contributed by workingmen for the aid  of the anthracite strikers.  It Is a good thing for the cause of organized labor that tills blackmailer and  pirate was convicted. It ls better tliat  he was convicted by the testimony of  union men. But it is best of all that he  promises to "squeal"���to tell of other  men who are taking "graft" for settling  strikes.  T'hat is the gravest danger which  confronts the union movement���the  danger that Its leaders may be corrupt  But this danger does not attach to  unionism alone, though the great daily  newspapers would Ilk* to make u�� nil  think so.  Men of-hlgh purpose and sincere convictions go into politics, give lavishly  "of. their money, time and thought only  to discover ut Uie last moment tha  some "grafter' 'has sold them out. Hut  shall we. say, therefore, that we must  neglect the duties of citizenship?  Men of means and shrewdnescs era  bark in corporate industries���invest  tlieir money ln the stocks of corporations managed, presumably, by other  men of high commercial standing and  reputation. Once in a while we find  the. corporation managers derelict,  using tlie corporate funds for their own  profit, ruining their stockholders Inthe  effort to enrich themselves. But the  financial world does not denounce corporations for this reason.  However,   when some   corrupttonlst  ADMISSION TO BROCKTON POINT.  There will be a full progrnmmo of  sports at Brockton Point In thc-after-  noon. Owing to thc large expenditure  In connection with the day's festivities  It has been decided to charge 25c admission to the grounds, children free;  grandstand, men, 23c; women and  children, free.  In the evening the carnival will he  made one of the big features of the  celebration. There, will be illumations,,  band concert, and a turnout pt mas-  queraders. There will also be sports,  foot-races, etc. The admission to the  grounds will be 25 cents for men, and  ladles free.  Eotel North Vancouver, flnwt ��tnn-  fner resort on the eoaat Overlooking  Burrard Inlet. Bate* moderate,  has secured a place in a labor union,  and uses it for extortion and blackmail,  It Is not the guilty man alone that the  dally press denounces, but the unions  as a whole. The workingmen, who are  the greatest sufferers by the treachery  of such an officiul, are as bitterly denounced as though they shared in the  spoil.  Yet, after all, there Is a sound foundation for this seeming injustice. It  is right and necessary that there should  be exacted of union ofllelnls a mlgher  standard of personal honor than that  of the average business man The Ideul  of unionism is unselfishness, or, at  least, that enlightened form of selfishness which serves self by serving others. Men engaged In a movement of  this sort must hold themselves superior  to the petty temptations of which the  world of business Is full. They must  be made to understand that in disgracing themselves they bring disrepute  and discredit upon a movement in  which the whole future of the American  workingman Is Involved. They are as  blackly guilty as the sentry who sells  out a fort to the enemy.���Boyce's  Weekly.  Labor Day.  The annual holiday for the masses draws near���  only nine days more. This eventful day will be  celebrated all over this continent, if present indications become crystalized. However, in Vancouver nothing more than a jolly good time will be  had, and that, too, in proper sociable style fraternizing one family with another, one trades man with  another, and all together,  The programme of sports which will be held at  Brockton Point starts at 1. p. m. is one that will  surely draw a crowd exceeding far, in point of  numbers, anything attempted before in Vancouver.  The grounds will accomodate thousands, and  bands will be in attendance,  The industrial parade will be the largest and  best ever pulled off in this province.  Chairman Geo. Downey of the   parade   Com.  mittee reports that everything has been arranged,  as far as the details are concerned and now it is up  to the unions to get in line and do their share.  The parade which forms on Dunsmuir and intersecting streets, starts at 10:30 a. m. sharp.   Line of  parade will be Dunsmuir to Granville, to Hastings,  to Cambie to Cordova, to Carrall, to Hastings, end-  ing at the Powell street grounds where a big rock  drilling contest and base ball match will be held.  Prizs for turn-outs in parade:  Best industrial float, which includes those repre-  setive of the different industries, first prize $50,  second $25.  Best union float $25.  Best commercial float includes those of stores or  businc-s, $25.-  Best appearing union, $25.  Most Comic float first, $15, second $10.  In the evening a grand masquerade carnival, ,  sports and dancing, will be held at the Brpckton  Point0grounds.   There will also be illuminations  and a band concert.  Addresses will be given by provincial men in the  evening in the Market hall.  Visitors to Vancouver are welcome at the headquarters of the Tourist Association, 439 Granville  street.  A man too proud to beg, too honest to  steal and too lazy to work is up against  a hard, unfeeling . condition of thing*.  Ho would be better dead.  FOES TO REFORM. .  Reform has some advocates who, if  they saw a neighbor rushing to save a  man from drowning, would stop him  and suggest tliat the ideal thing to do  was not to pull the man out of the  water but to stop off and agitate for  socialism or single tax. Much might be  accomplished If people would move for  one reform at a time. The trouble is  that the reforms which are possible and  desirable are tied up to the reforms  which are impossible or undesirable.  The farmers and manufacturers have  large mutual interests in the control  of the railways and the reduction of  freight rates. If the farmers and manufacturers could get together they could  reform the abuses which rob them both.  they_choose_to-stay-apart_quarrelling  about the tariff. Industry and agriculture are not united, and the railways  rule Mie country. The mistakes and  divisions of enthusiasts who wish to  Improve the existing order, the distrust  of the people for each other, all ter,d  to protect the existing order against  change and to shelter abuses which a  united people could easily destroy.���  Toronto Telegram.  ELECT-DELEGATES.  TO KEEP OUT ALIENS.  A London coble states that the report ofrthe royal commission on immigration recommends thnt provisions  largely similar to those In the United  States be enacted for the regulation of  the entrance of aliens Into Britain.  There are certain points of difference.  No educational test Is applied and Immigrants who may be proved to be undesirable within two years of their  landing can be deported, the vessel  which Imported them having to bear  the expense of their deportation. Aliens  may be debarred from entering certain  over-populated areas. If an immigrant  is convicted of crime, deportation may  be part of the penalty inflicted.

Although the session of the Dominion  Trades and Labor congress does not  meet until September 22, yet the various affiliated bodies are electing theii*  delegates to said congress, which meets  at Brockville this year. The most important feature at this session will  likely be the establishment of a national law bureau and defense fund to  combat the "Russian-Siberian law"  which the Dominion senators are endeavoring to introduce to curtail the  if  influence and success of organized labor In the country.  The platform of principles of the congress are:  l~Fr"ee compulsory education? "  2. Legal working day of eight hours,  and six days to a week.  3. Government Inspection of all industries.  4.

Sympathetic strikes are in bad odor,  not only with the public generally, but  with probably the majority of labor organizations.?' Yet strikes of this character are based upon a great truth, that  "An injury to one Is the concern of all.  The difficulty is in the application. It  is proper that one union should feel  concern as to the outcome of a strike  carried on by a sister organization.  There is something wrong in the makeup of a union that does not have this  concern. But society and industry-  have become such complex affairs that  there is danger of a sympathetic strike  doing more harm than good. The world  of labor is now a sort of endless chain,  going no one can tell where. And as  finite' mind cannot fathom thc infinite,  so it is only the part of wisdom to hesitate a long while before becoming involved in something the end of which  cannot be seen. One can be a good  union man or woman, therefore, while  hesitating or even refusing to indulge  in a sympathetic strike.���Boyce's Weekly.  ���We are selling  Boots and .Shoes at  Hard Time Prices.

Items from Victoria  By Our Own Correspondent.  The excursion committee of the  'Trades and Labor council are working  like heroes, nnd a good crowd would be  .a befitting acknowledgement of their  ���commendable efforts.  August is drawing to a close, and nothing of importance doing in political  ���circles. -:It is'expected :,that a .move  ���will be'made immediately after Labor  dar.  It has ?been discovered that the ilb-  .erals.have m'ade a mistake In taking  exception to some of the voters j who  registered. As a;result apologies are  In order, and, Incidentally, cash registers are.ringing frequently.  prevails and strong opposition is mani  fested towards.the innovation In more  than, one quarter., .'.: A? trio of. shining  lights swear that it their portraits dec-  corate the art gallery, they will Incorporate, lease the vacant rooms above  the store for- a period of five years,  stock the establishment with Jimburger  cheese and charter a steam calliope, to  offset  the-attraction.  laam's ass, a quadruped deservedly rendered immortal   for an* action   which  beats anything done by aiiy other member of a four-footed tribe.   , He' spoke  and reproved   his master,  for hitting  him.     No other animal,has spoken so  forcibly, and to the point, as he did.  But what was 'Balaam's first 'thought  on  hearing  his ass speak?     To  kill  him.,   This Is always the llrst impulse  with anything new���to kill it.    It may  be- argued that-  the ass   is a sullen  brute, who won't always do what he ls  told.     But is this to be wondered at?  He is probably brooding with bitter resentment under, an abiding sense   of  injury. , We flout, beat and deride, him,  and then make him do the work    of a  horse,, although  he  Is  not  half     the  horse's size.    When theanlmal Is cnre-  fully looked after, he is ti fine creature,  but  constant  Ill-treatment and  semi-  starvation have caused him' to dwindle  till he has become a meagre and cadaverous, a very little: beast with a very-  large bray.    Perhaps the bray has developed* so hugely because of his constant repetition of his many .wrongs. So  we have ourselves to thank for It. Or,  perhaps, as he is called, a "dumb animal," he takes measures to give them  the lie and prove withstentorlan.voice  that he is nothing of the sort.  LABOR WfflS.  Nearlyjall workingmen are fully- employed, and the King Edward, as usual  around elections, is getting>ln its,work  ���preparing a suitable location whereon  the C. P. R. intends erecting a palatial  hbtel,; providing the taxpayers of Victoria are'- willing. ���   '    '"     ���'���  , .The Victoria Terminal Railway com-  -pany is reported to be running an excursion to Vancouver on Labor, day.  ���This will, not interfere with the excursion planned and .arranged by the  Trades and Labor Council. .So far as  .can be determined, members of thovar-  ious unions intend proceeding in a body  .on the new Ship Princess Victoria.  - A massiveroll of advertising was de-  A massive,roil of advertising matter  ���was delivered at the Empire cigar store  .on -Sunday morning. It was?promptly  attended to on Monday morning, and  now Victoria,Is placarded with notices  ?of the Labor ? day celebration In Van-  .couver.* Great interest Is being manifested in the various unions, and it  ���certainly'appears'that the capacity of  the. Princess Victoria will be severely  tested on Labor day. *', '  A member of the crew of the Charmer  gave notice to Engineer Allan that he  -was about to leave the service of the  company.,   Thinking that 24 hours' notice   was ' necessary the unsuspecting  Individual remained on board and went  on to Vancouver, expecting 7 to?attend  :to his duties ??untll his return. ��� to Vic-  . -itoria on cthe riexttrip, when he-Intended  to leave.,   He, however, was not called  ��� on watch, and on hIs return to Victoria  called for his time check.     Thi�� was  glveii-hlm, but-four dollars were kept  out of his wages to pay for his fare to  and from Vancouver.     Verily the C.  P. R. will never be found by the nickels  they drop on the trail.  REPORT OF  ROYAL  COMMISSION.  The report of the royal commission is  a pretty lengthy dbcument.-but.very  few who have perused lt have gone into  ecstacies over it.     It does not appear  to satisfy the average mind as to the  true cause of labor troubles in the province of British Columbia..   Many'are  of the opinion that if the evidence, as  given? by Mr. Dunsmuir, had been Incorporated in the report of thecommls-  sion'Mt would Have given a clear Idea  of the real .cause oJT .trouble in the province. ������<  Of course, the.report is about  as good as-could be expected.     Royal  commissions  are  expensive undertakings, and great care should be taken in  the: make-up of a? commission.     They  are sometimes  characterised as royal  farces,;and cost all the way from $25 to  tAO. per head per diem.   :rMen with a  thorough knowledge of the "labor problem and labor troubles could be had  much cheaper.    Some day, perhaps, experienced men will be? selected to investigate troubles between capital and labor.'   As a matter, of f.act, an investigation    along these lines Is entirely unnecessary.     Every, citizen with a particle of ordinary, common sense thoroughly  understands  the' cause  of all  the trouble?; and' that trouble will only  cease when the working man is treated  like a human being and not as a mule;  and when he- receives sufficient remuneration for'his services to be able to  live in comparative comfort.  LIBOR MANIFESTO.  EMPIRE CIGAR, STORE  The genial. proprietor of: the Empire  ���Cigar Store Is about to add another attraction to his highly attractive place  .of business.

Having delivered himself  thus, he no doubt retires with a comfortable sense of-'satisfaction which -always comes from offering an enemy the  deadliest insult you can think'of.    But  if he really means what he says, he'is  Investing the object or objects of his  scorn    with    qualities, that   anybody  might be proud of. ? Sagacity mildness,  patience, a penetrating shrewdness, and  a keen though   quiet sense; of humor.  The Insult is,? in fact, no insult, except  to the ass���the poor, caluminated beast  that is dragged in to carry all the follies bf the human race on its back. The  ass is the degenerated  outcome of a  persecuted line of ancestors, who have  been beaten,? half-starved, and for hundreds of   years   received ?��� more kicks  than ha'pence?

Some people have a very  high .opinion of , the donkey's Intelligence. As he Is mild and Inoffensive,  however, he gets not worship but blows.  That Is the way of the world. There  Is no excuse for this hatred of lhe poor  animal by almost every nation of the  globe.; It is probably due to Jealousy,  the .same sentiment that- causes that  clever race, the Jews, to be hated wherever they go., But notwithstanding the  injustice (done him, the ass has been  able? to make his. mark on, history, antl  one?'illustrlous member .of the species  has -been celebrated; among men for  thousands of years.     I allude to Ba-  . The following manifesto haa been Issued by the Labor candidate:  TO THE ELECTORS OF VANCOUVER:  Gentlemen.���ln appealing to you' for  ?support ln thc forthcoming general Pro  vlnclal election, /the Vancouver Labor  Party begs to make the following statement of its principles and policy:  For many years wc have felt the wnnt  .of a definite Labor Party in the House,  whose specie duty should be to Introduce  and supporVmeasurcs for the ameliora-  , tion of the condition,. ot the workers  j'.Hitherto', the workers, as such, have'not  been .represented In., either the Provincial or Dominion Houses. Our legislators, while always elected by the vote of  the working classes, have always been  chosen from the ranks of the lawyers (the  professional class), landowners, leisure  class,'*or large manufacturers (direct exploiters of labor), but never from the  ranks of.the workers themselves. Therefore, and almost of necessity, our laws  have, been made? in the: interest ;of the  moneyed and luxurious classes and those  who derive their incomes from them, viz.,  the professionals. ,     ��  As'long as this condition of affairs remains, ��� wo'.who' from time immemorial  have been called the working class cannot expect to have:more:than tho' merest fragmdnt'of Justice accorded to- us by  legislative enactments.  ;. In-lleu of legislation in our behalf, wc  have to appeal to tho "strike" because  we have no other.weapon to fight, with.  Wo realise that the "strike" is clumsy,  uncertain and always more or less disagreeable and annoying to the country.  The Vancouver Labor Party, therefore,  puts Itself on record as being in favor  of legislative enactments to relievo the  working class from tke unjust conditions  which, how burden them. Ninety per  cent, of the populatlon-of British Columbia have no direct voice in making or  putting in force the laws of the,Province.  This ought not to be. That the trend of  tho (workers' .'movement 'is In the direction of direct representation in' Parliament by tho workers themselves ls evidenced by the fact that a number of  working men have seats in the Imperial  Parliament; that Mr. Puttee has been  alected on this issue to the Dominion  House, and Mr.? Hawthornthwaite to the  Provincial-Assembly.  Working men of Vancouver, be true to  yourselves and vote for the Vancouver  Labor Party on.October Slst, 1903.  (Signed)      P.

Brockville,  Ontario, on Tuesday, September 22,  1903, at 10 o'clock a. m., nnd all. trades  and labor councils nnd federal labor  unions (chartered bythe congress), national trade unions and international  local trade and labor unions In the Dominion of Caada are Invited to send representatives.  The ba3is of representation shall be  as. follows:    International local  trade  unions and federal unions;shall be allowed one, delegate tor each one hundred  members or under,  and one for  each additional one hundred or,majority fraction thereof; trade   and labor  councils  and- national    trade'  unions,  thre delegates each.

No  proxy representative, will be , allowed,  and .all members must be members of  the body they, represent (except in the  case of bodies composed of delegates  from local organizations), at least six  months prior? to and at the time of election, but nothing in this clause shall be  construed to prevent unions froni combining to send one represetative who is  a member of. one of such unions; ulso  provided  that: nothing? in  this  clause  shall': prevent- organizations   being represented not six months organized.  All delegates will be required to produce   certificates   of . ��� election : (blank  forms of- which are herewith forwarded), signed by the presiding officer and  secretary of., the organization they represent and  bearing";'the seal, ol the  same, where such exists..

Railway certificates, are procurable  from any railway ticket agent and will  entitle the holder to a return fare and  one-third the regular, rate, provided  fifty delegates hold certificates, or fare  and two-thirds if under fifty. Certificates must be signed by the secretary  of the.congress at Brockville, Ont.  The headquarters : of the delegates  attending the convention will be at the  St. Lawrence hall; where a special'i-ate  of Jl.utt per day has been arranged for  by the Brockville Trade, and Labor  council. The following hotels are also  recommended (rate not specified): Revere House, Strathcona and Grand Central. ��� '  Labor. Legislation in the Dominion  Parliament,  Among otlier things    the   secretary  goes on,to say:  The past session of the Dominion parliament witnessed the introduction of  legislation of the most oppressive character,'-aimed at organized labor. The  two following bills threaten the .very  existence of trade unionism? and, no  matter at whose Instance they were  introduced, the intent Is.plain, namely,  to administer a quietus to the legitimate  aims and eftors of organized labor: Bill  Hi���"An act to amend the criminal  code respecting offences connected with  trade "and~breaches-of "contract."  ' The object of-this bill is to kill international trade unionism.  Bill S.���"An act to amend the criminal  code, 1892, respecting free labor." This  bill, if passed, will prevent a trade  union discussing ordinary trade matters.  The above bills originated in the senate, where scant courtesy was shown  to bill U.���"An act to legalize union  labels."  Among other bills of interest to organized labor dealt with were the Chinese Exclusion act, ' the Conciliation  bill, the Railway Appliances act, us  well as numerous acts of the provincial  legislatures.  The, Importance of the deliberations  of the approaching session of congress  cannot be over-accentuated. The employing classes have united in active  antagonism to organized labor,? their  operations are carried on In secret, the  funds at their command are large and  constantly' increasing and only by a  closer union, coupled with careful judgment and action upon the.part of organized labor will it be able to cope  with them and-prevent the destruction  of -the Canadian international trades  and labor union movement. The efforts  of our opponents are ot conflnedto the  "shop"  but extend  to our legislative  1       Our Victoria Advertisers.

Sir,���The Yorktown Enterprise says  of the new railway bill: "For thc bill  it may be urged that lt ls an honest  effort to combine public ownership nnd  private enterprise. ��� * * The gov  eminent proposes private ownership  under a lease for fifty years. Thus securing the best skill and energy of the  community in the working of the railway." The Enterprise suggests as one  of three possible alternatives, "the government to build and manipulate its  own road, and thus make it a national  railway." Still another alternative,  which would, doubtless, prove immeasurably superior to those suggested,  would be for the government to build  and maintain the road and make it a  national highway for all carriers, free  of toll, on the same principle as the  public streets, roads, rivers, lakes,and  high seas. Then competition among  carriers would bring rates down to their  proper level, without the aid of railway commissions or legalized maximum rates. Where highways are free to  all. none cun maintain excessive rates,  Instead of granting 12,800 acres of the  finest wheat land in the world for each  mile of road built, as in the case of the  Canadian Pacific, the government  should grant the land to settlers, without charge, save an annual tax equal  to the rental value of the bare land.  In this way, instead of every alternate  section being withheld from settlement  for an indefinite period, thus necessitating the construction of thousands of  miles of country roads, settlement  would be compact, adjacent to the railway, and fewer country roads would ba  necessary, thus materially reducing the  llrst expenses of n new country. A little rellection will Justify the assertion  that this policy of railway development  would people the section traversed more  rapidly than any other eciunl area in  tlie history of the world. If tlie government considered the establishment  of an absolutely free highway too great  ;i risk, it could charge loll for a few  years, until the volume of land taxes  justified the abolition of tolls*. Failing  to be self-sustaining under government  management, as a last resort the road  could be leased or sold. But- should the  plan be given a full- trial, it is altogether Improbable that the people would  ever consent to either lease or sell the  road. This Is a splendid opportunity  for Canada to reach a foremost place  among the world of nations at a single  bound.  '-  ALBERT EDWARD FREELAND.  Mount Pleasant, Tcnn., Aug. 20. 1903.  i mmt  Trades and Labor Congress of Canada  Appeals to International Unions to  Present a Solid Front.  TOO .MUCH POLITICS.  The'party system amuses the people  with the privilege of quarrelling over  politirs that have no meaning, while  they are ruled by Interests that have-  no politics.  The people who would profit by the  success of W. F. McLean's crusade for  two-cent-a-mile rates on railways are  troubled by too much politics and too  little sense.  The railways wliich imagine that they  would be injured by the success of the  two-cent-a-mile movement have no politics, but they have their own way, and  always will have until the people learn  to be as independent in defence ,of their  rights as corporations are in attacking,  these rights.���Toronto Tlgram.

To Trades and Labor Councils and International  Local  Trade   Unions   in  Canada, Greeting:  Fellow Workers and Brothers,���The  time has arrived In the history of or  ganized labor ln Canada when a step  In advance must be taken ln 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, proposed the same  remedies and received the same rebuffs,  but a new departure has cccurred in  the ranks of those opposed to us���a de<  parture 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 been that it has kept its  eyes closed to the methods adopted by  those among the employing classes who  oppose our legitimate alms. Recent developments have shown the necessity  of an immediate uwakenlng, and your  body is requested therefore, to give its  prompt consideration to tho requests  and proposals contained in this circular.  The trend of the day is towards union,  and the 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 antiigonism to organized labor. No better proof of this Is required  than the strenuous.support given recently to the' pernicious legislation Introduced in the senate, at Ottawa, for  the exclusion of the officers and the  dismemberment of International unions.  A united front was presented by these  bodies and their attitude was a striking lesson to tlie representatives of organized labor present at the discussion  of the bill.   Then what is to be done?  Stated shortly and plainly, the one  feature 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 there-  'ore. to strengthen congress in every  way possible. With labor a solid pha-  -. n">-(> respect will be paid to its  ���rosfi'.itatlons, more weight be attach-  ������'-. to It's arguments and more beneficial  results will follow its efforts.  Your body may, perhaps, not be In a  position that calls for action in the way  suggested, but, if not, then we urge  you with all tlie emphasis we can bring  to bear, to do your utmost to urge labor bodies that, arc now ln affiliation  with the congress to lose no time in becoming affiliated. There are today  many unions that, though alllllated  with their international organizations,  have not become affiliated with congress, and to these bodies we point out  that, by a recent decision of the executive of the American-Federation of La-  bor (with which .International bodies  are federated) all locals in Canada,  whether affiliated with International  unions or not, not all federal unions,  are directly urged to become attached  to the congress without delay.  Tliere Is thus unity of opinion upon  the necessity for this action, and what  ls now required ls a unity of action  (for legislative purposes) as well as a  unity of opinion,  Do not delay taking action In this  matter, but follow the example of employers and act at once.
