The men demumled a rec- ; ognition of the union; ix'instateiuent ol' unjustl.v tlisclvargcd union men, � and pa.\' dur.ii'g suspension and an increase in wages. All these ileuuuids were reliLsed ii.v the company. The conipaii.\ says it wants to run its own Inisiiiess. It is claimed that the ma.ximuiii wage |)aid'" in Winnipeg is li.'ic. an hour, compai'ed with in Chicago. The men maiiitaiu they ar� , not paid as goo�l wages as in other cities Wild distnilmnces occurred on the i ( daj of the strike. Cars wei-e run olT the track and ile.stroycon, the leader of the strike-breakers, was arrosttKl the same night at ".l.;!0 for assaults on citizens The arrest was lua'de b.v order of the A t lorney-C.eneral, and bail was"d. .Magistrate .McMii:lrosperily, we have met W. I''. Uussell. W. W. Douglas, Wm. I'robert, S. .1. Layton, W. A. Aul}-in, nil citizens of Tnbor. They put within us ii de.siro to .see the place, which tui'iis out such progressive citizens as the geiitlemi'n mentioned, so we boarded the midnight train last Fridn.v for the "Village of Promise." Phe train had a dozen or so persons hea.ied for the sa'ue pluce. We got olT the train in a rush aii'd startostairs. Mr. C^arroU is putt'ing up an addition to his hotel which will |u'ovilouse. It is nearly finished, and looks goo^l to the eye. .lack Irvine, of Meilicine Hat, will run it. We wcio told that the Lemon would endeavor to be the main "squeeze" in We flon't know whtjther that Infor-the place, as it would be heated tiy hot water and lighted by electricity, a iilant bt^ing installed in the hotel, nmiion was intended for an end of Ma/ch josh or not, but if it is the, it shows that Lemon has hea|is of faith in Tabor. New buildings are popping up as livcl.v as corks at a champagiie supper, you can't count them on your lingee tiiis, and it ud lake pU your toes in^laddition to record the new ,9tructuros that are rising on the prairie. On the way north from the station, .vou first strike a butcher^ shop that is being erected for Mr. Jett, formerly of Lethbridge. A, few-feet farther on is -the new Liemon Hotel, next to that is a building which A. B. Hoaglin tays g'>ir'g to be tihe new postofflce; adjoining are three structures only recently born. These, we were told, would be used for a pool room by Brown and Sacrider, a drug store to be run by Piagle and Lang, and  hir.n.i ro store for Mr. Williamson. Across the street the framework of a building for a jewellry firm from Nelson, B. C, was just arising. Across the tracks Wm. Cousins is erecting a two-stoiY'y block, the upper tloor of which will, it is said, be usetl by I the Oddfellows, who are soon to Ije i organized in the village. Hero and there about the village can bo seen homes being built for the citizens. Tabor is certainly enjoying a building boom, and it is not likcl.v to enti for some lime. A store is being built oppoS'He the station for West-lake llros., jewellers. It will adjoin the gent's furnishing store conducted by Archie CamplwU, formerly of A. Southard's, tjothbridge. The growth of Tabor is based upon its location in the midst of a big coal deposit. Four miles nr� ! ig ofierated close , to the town. The Ileliance end the Tabor at the present time are spending a great deal of inoncy flc^'eloping their properties. As much as 70 cars � >a\ nri-. tiiu>-|)ed from Tabor weekly now. Apart from coal i-esources. Tabor is surrounded by a rapidly developing'ng conmiunity. Land seekers are coming in daily preparing to locate on the dry lan'ds in the vicinity. Tabor is said to have a population of 700, and we don t I )ii�l it It Is only throe .vears old, and is expanding so rapidly that it is hard for people, who have not been there in a year, to focognize it. It is becoming more compact every day. The new buildings till up (he ".nc-ont nrairie between the station and Probert and Wood's iim.
