At the present time they claim from lin.Onn to 10.nun mem bers. What is the reason for them losing over one-half of their mem bership in so short a time? If it is such a grand organization and was to he of great benefit to both the employers and employees, why have they not been able to retain their full membership? We know, of course, no organization would please everyone, but there must be something wrong witlt the 4L, Head the IL constitution and by laws, and you w ill find the reason. It was drawn up with the hope that the employees of tlte mills and camps Would be unable to read, or that they would not take the time to read it; possibly there are some employees who are unable to read and I hope that the H5.000 or 40,» 000 members they claim at the present time are in that class, as they might have some excuse for joining. There is not a word in the whole constitution that favors the employee. It is all in favor of thel employer. Some of the men ex pected a real 50-50 organization, | but have found it to be 100*0 with j the workers on the short end, as | i usual. Thousand.; of dollars have been spent to put through this new "Employers' Protective Association" ( IL). High salaried men have been working, as organizers, trying to fool the men into believing they had something that was going to be lof ureat benefit to them. They used the same methods as are used by a . fisherman. If a fisherman tried to catch a fish with a bare hook he would not. catch very many. So they cover the hook with bait. II" they fail with one kind of i bait they try another. The same way with these IL or ganizers. If they were to talk on the IL constitution, which is the same as the bare hook, they would not catch very many fish. Instead of this, they talk on < c-operative stores, old age pension, etc.. but they don't tell of the many loop holes pla< ed in their constitution for the benefit of the employer. Having failed in making a big [haul, these 4L fishermen will try another kind ol halt. They will very [ikely try to fool the employ ees, by promising to change tho con stitution. If they do promise this they will not be able to fulfill it, as the employer will be dissatisfied. .Many of the fish are wiggling off jthe 4L hook, and their new bait will not be successful, as it is now b closed season for fishinn for ihe 4L. to secure some other employment. The best place lor them would be in some sawmill or logging camp, at the 11. wages of JfJ.tiO per 'lay. anil they would soon (hange their membership from the IL to a real labor organization, such as the Timberworkers' t'riion. composed Of employees only. This is not a> 50-50 organization, but of 100% ; 'employees, as the West Coast Lum-1 bermen's Association is 10u r ; for the employers, To get real, un adulterated co-operation, take the ■ame number of representatives from ea'li of these and have them draw up an agreement that will bind both parties, You can not do this by allowing the employers membership in the employees' organization, like the IL, , .loin the Timberworkers' Union of the American Federation of La-1 bor, and don't bite on the next kind |of bait the 4L will try to feed you. HARRY WOOD. ROSE THEATRE VAUDEVILLE HIPPODROME a Shows Nightly—7:ls, 9 P. M. THE BRITISH COAL LAND OWNERS FAIL TO PRODUCE TITLE DEEDS LONDON, ENGLAND, June 7.— The remarkable spectacle of titled rigid cross-examination on how tbcj secured title to coal lands was witnessed at hearings by the San- Itey Coal Commission, when Rob ert Smillie, President of the Brit ish Miners' Federation, asked of these lords, dukes anil earls many embarrassing questions, Vast acreages ami princely In comes are involved and the trade unionist, with told dignity, dial- longed the noblemen, again ami again, to produce die authority on which they held these lands. Vague assertions, that the "laud had been in the family since before the (toman conquest," or "if tho land were not mine It would have been claimed by someone else," did not satisfy the miners' official, lie wanted every statement of the huiis backed bj documentary evi dence and in many cases the wit nesses were unable to do this, and indicated no desire to show their title deeds. The Karl of Dunham was not dear as to why he claimed owner ship ot 12,411 acres of coal land, and Which nets him a revenue of |200,000 a year. He said he never read the title deeds to these lands, and he could see no reason for the present Inquiry, "You have caused my agent," he said, "a great deal of Inconveni ence by saying you wanted the title deeds here." The attorney of one duke, whose income on coal lands is represent ed to be over a million a v ear. could see nothing unfair in the fact that the duke was getting a shilling a ton Voyalty on the coal, while the coal digger, who risked nis me, was paid less than tnai sum a ton for mining it. GAME AND GAME FISH CODE OF THIS STATE Tho new c ompilation of the Game and c.amc Fish Code of this state has been received by State t'.ame Warden L. H. Darwin and is now being furnished to the Game War dens of the various Counties of the staff: for distributio mo interested parties. The last session of the Lcgisla-| ture made only two changes in the Game Laws. One provides that skins of heaver killed outside of I the State may be shipped into the i State and sold after being tagged 'by the State Came Warden. The other change provides for the li censing of game farms. The new compilation of the Laws contains these amendments. The Game Laws of the State pro vide that the County Game Commis sions, in their respective Counties, i may open, close or shorten the up land bird season. They further 'provide that the State Game War den may, anywhere in the State, ; and the Count) Game Commissions may, in their respective Counties, close any fresh waters to game fish ing when such action is deemed necessary for the preservation of the fish, in accordance with these provisions of the Law. many Coun ty Game Commissions have made changes In their upland bird sea son anil a number of the County (lame Commissions have closed cer tain lakes and streams to game i fishing. The new compilation of the Game and Fish Law as prepared by the State Game Warden not only gives the personnel of all the Coun ty Came Commissions and the County Game Wardens, but in ad dition sets OUt whatever change! have been made by the County Game commissions in their respect ive Counties in the upland bird sea son and also what streams and lakes thej bave dosed to fishing in their respective counties.

He said the miners were | trying to monopolize the mines fori themselves." The Marquis "f Londonderry in sisted that h<> hail a. much right to the a.oou ncres of coal land held by him as he has to the coat on his hack. The Marquis or Bute, who owns 126,582 acres of coal lands, and has an annual income of over $560, nnn, admitted that King Kdward VI was a buy between 1" and 14 years Of age 360 years ago when he signed documents conveying the lauds which now forms the Bute estates. The Martinis said be should he paid for these lands if they were nationalized, even if it were to he shown that the signature of the hoy king on these documents was forged. Lord Tredegar was impatient with the Commission. This noble man's annual income is 1426,000, He said he was somewhat "rusty" about the title to these lands; that they were in his family from time immemorial and if he didn't hold them "someone else would." One of the commissioners presented proof that large tracts in Lord Trede gar's holdings were never purchas ed. It was shown that the witness has an income of $!i5.000 a year from a railroad one mile long that cost $"no,iMiu to construct. Other coal operators arc forced to use this line, which is called the "Golden Mile" railroad. the compilation an invaluable guide, particularly to those who fish or hunt in more than one County In the state. Another new and extremely val uable feature of the compilation is two charts which show the Game j Laws of Western and Eastern | Washington at a glance. Because of the diffe rent climatic conditions the Came Laws of the two sections lot the State differ materially.

ORGANIZED LABOR I SPEAKS FOR ITSELF Organised labor in New York is up in arms against the recent at tempt of the director of the Nation al civic Federation to discredit the labor reconstruction program of tho | National Catholic War Council, I which is "substantially the same" as the program adopted by labor I itself. A resolution unanimously adopt ed at the last meeting, May Itith. of the central Federated I'nion of Greater New York and the Brook lyn Central I.abor I'nion, vigorously denounces Kalph M. Basley for pre* | tending to speak for organized la bor in assailing the enlightened pronouncement of the Catholic Jiier archy, The resolution refers to Basley as an 'apologist for special privi lege" It declares that the ad vanced position recently taken by the church on measures of labor re form "confirms the belief of Cath olic ami non-Catholic workmen alike that this program must be really and vitally important to the welfare of the workers or it would not rouse the ire of the Civic Fed eration.'' The resolution, adopted without a dissenting vote, follows: "WHEREAS, Ralph M. Easley, Secretary of the National t'ivie Federation, states in the March "-", th 'Review,' their official organ, under the caption. 'Radicals Mis lead churches About Labor —Social Reconstruction Program Put Forth By Catholics and Protestants Alike, Based on Views of Xear-Bolsheviki, Not on Ideas of Responsible Organ ized Labor,' that '1 do not mean to imply for one moment that repre sentative men in the Catholic and Protestant Churches have inten tionally done this thing, but the work has been intentionally done just the same by Socialists or near- Socialists in their ranks.' and that 'This raised the question, Why are the churches all alike advocating the same radical measures to aid the working classes, which these same working classes themselves do not want?' and "WHEREAS, This same Ralph ;M. Basley lias long been known as I a retainer of the employing class j whose purpose is to chloroform any attempt at fundamental reform on the part of the working people, and who without authority attempts to ! speak for organized labor; ttacre | fore, he it "RESOLVED, That the Brooklyn Central Labor Union and the Cen tral Federated I'nion of Greater New York and vicinity, which adopted a reconstruction program substantially the same as the re construction program of the Nation al Catholic War Council, congratu lates the four bishops comprising the Reconstruction Committee upon having aroused the usual unfair and untruthful opposition of this apologist for special privilege, be cause it confirms tbe beliefe of Catholic and non-Catholic work men alike that this program must be really and vitally important to the welfare of the workers, or it would not arouse the ire of the for Store Opens f) a. m., C loses 6 p. m..

CRIME OF CONTENTMENT I see amid the factory's sullen roar Small children slaving at some huge machine, Their little bodies stunted, pirn bed and lean. That profiteers may stuff their gold en store. To look upon this awful tragedy, Of childhood that is daily being staged, t Where cries of anguish seldom a are assuaged. While profits yield to pity grudg ingly. To close the eyes to this grim so cial sore That saps and enervates the hu man race; To lack the moral stamina to face The cause of it and then to find the cure; On those let this anathema he vent ed: Damned be he who sees, yet is con tented. — Charles 11.
