First picture of blast that broke levee to save new Orleans 1.00100, May 2.�? a on the anniversary of last years general Rike and with the echoes of the Preat May Day demonstrations Oft labor sounding in its ears the House of commons today will begin the debate on the most important Bill submitted to parliament since the War. By this Bill the government contemplates making a general strike forever impossible and at the same time Hopes to Cut the Teeth of the Trade Union Powers. The Bill had its genesis in the ave of indignation which swept the country a year ago and broke the general strike. Doubtless the government counted on the surge of that wave to carry the present Bill but apparently in making the Bill so drastic As it has at the Behest of party extremists the ministers failed to take into consideration the stir it would raise in the whole labor world and the parliamentary contest Over the measure promises to be such As has not convulsed the political atmosphere of great Britain for a decade. Yield first Point before the debate has begun the ministers have found it advisable to yield the first Battle to their opponents by making the Bill applicable to employers enforcing lockouts As Well As against workers resorting to the strike weapon. Candid friends in the conservative press warn the government that Jit has made the mistake of making the provisions of the Bill too drastic thereby enforcing bit ter class War and welding the hitherto somewhat divided opposition into a consolidate body. The Bill will be in charge of sir Douglas Hogg the attorney general whose great Legal knowledge it is expected will be needed to meet the criticisms. Dynes Heads opposition in the absence of j. Ramsay Macdonald the labor Leader whose return from the United states has been delayed John Robert Dynes will take charge of the opposition to the measure. The Liberal party will generally oppose the Bill but interest centers in the attitude of sir John Simon and some other leading liberals who last year were prominent in maintaining the illegality of the general strike. 77 believed doomed in blast wrecked Tunnel flames Force Back Rescue Crews in West Virginia mine cd e a t h list already reaches fifteen.
