Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 15, 1909, Lethbridge, Alberta LtTHBRlQOsV ALTA., THURSDAY, APRIL Daily Herald Printed by Daily Herald Printing Co.. Ltd., ..every lawful evening at office.

THE PUGSLEY CASE Hon. Mr. Pugsley says the charges made against him'do not concern the people of the Dominion; they have only to do with New Brunswick. Mr. Pugsley must remember, however, that he is a public servant and if his actions in public life in New Brunswick have been, wrong the peo- ple of the entire Dominion have a right to disapprove of his conduct. A member -of the Dominion Govern- ment cannot lightly cast aside serious charges with the remark that what he did in his own province is not the affair of the people of the Dominion. The deeds of a man in public life must be open to the searchlight at all times. It has not been proven that Mr. Pugsley is guilty merely because a commission appointed by a hostile government makes a report hut the Minister of Public Works cannot afford to laugh at the charges made. It is his duty to himself, to the Lib eral party and to the people of C-an- ada that he should establish his in- j nocence or resign, from the Govern- ment. If he cannot refute the charg- es to resign then it is the duty of Sir Wilfrid Laurier to give him his .-walking ticket. SUN FIRE The oldest Insurance Office in the world FOUNDED A.D. 1710 EI-CEMENA1Y 191O HOME OFFICE: LONDON. ENGLAND t Canadian Branch, SUB Building, Toronto. H. M. Alsckburn. Manager. C. B. BOWMAN, AGENT, LETHBRIDGE, ALTA. OUR POINT OF VIEW The Raymond Rustler has changed haiids. Otto L. 'Carr, who has been associated with tbe paper for some months, takes over the and ownership from Fred Ford. The Bustler has improved wonderfully as a newspaper recently and Mr. Can- will be certain to make i.-v TV effort to keep up its reputation ns a jo-O local weeklv. There is a rumor that William Lyon Mackenzie King will be asked to be- come leader of the Liberal party in Ontario. King is of the right cal- ibre and would put ginger and con- fidence into the Liberals of the pro- vince, who at present are small in numbers in the Legislature. King is a clean young man, with high ideals, splendid ability and capable of getting everybody in line. he would accept the leadership is an- other matter. Lethbridge is being talked about as the liviliesi city in the west. You bear this statement made on the trains and in the hotels all over the country. A few years ago all eyes were on Saskatoon, Calgary and Edmonton, but- inow Lethbridge is occupying the most prominent place in the investor's mind. A CITY DIRECTORY Many business men in this city have expressed themselves to the Herald during the past y-ear as be- ing inconvenienced through the lack of a city directory. The opportunity of having such a volume prepared is about to- be of- fered. C. R. Holliday. representing the well known Henderson Director- ies, Limited, is in the city and if he receives encouragement, he will com mence at once to compile a directory The name of practically every citi zen mil be secured and placed in the directory along with their occu pation, business and residence ad dresses. In addition there will be sev eral pages devoted to an article on the city, and the opportunities i offers. This company prepared direc tones of the cities of Calgary, Ed monton, Brandon, Moose Jaw, Sas- katoon, Regina and Portage la Prai rie, and the people of those cities find their directories of the greatest valuer The preposition to supply a Leth- bridge directory should be encoux- agfed by our merchants especially, The Herald can recommend the Hen- derson people as the best- directory people in the country. Their direc- tory will be certain to give every sat- isfaction. A Calgary minister finds that peo- ple chew tobacco while he is preach- ing and he is very indignant. He should be annoyed too, for it may be appeal to a committee., by was entirely satisfactory to our com mittee. Both the company and men now understand the report and interpret it in the same way. GOT SYSTEM OF REPRESENTA- TION "Third. With reference to the changes of the conference and the con cessions naade by the officials of the company we asked for system repre- sentation. That is to say, we have asked that ooe committee should meet the officials of the company in Winnipeg and that the same com- mittee should meet the officials ol the company in Montreal. We have received assurance that Mr. Work, Uie general chairman, of Winnipeg, shall meet the officials of the com- pany in Montreal and negotiate with them. The company agree to furnish iTr. Wark with transportation to Montreal at any time on request for this purpose, and also to furnish transportation at any time on any part of the system. The question whether Mr. Work can call members of the committee from the west to confer with the officials in the east has not yet been determined. Tnis has been rei'erred to Montreal for de- cision. COMMITTEE REPRESENTATION SECURED also asked for committee rep? resentation. Prior to the strike ol last year it was provided that if au employee was discharged, fined, re- ceived Demerit marks, etc., he could evidence that the fellows have chew in order to keep awake. C F. R. MEN DEAL WITH SETTLEMENT A FIRE CHIEF In selecting a fire chief the City Council does not want to make any rash move. This city is growing rap- idly and the necessity of the very best fire protection is becoming more ap- parent every day. At the head of the department it is most important that we should have a thoroughly compe- tent man who understands fire fighting from the ground up. We want also a man who. will command the respect and obedience of the men of the brigade. Ifa local man with these qualifica- tions can be secured very well and good but if not- there should be no hesitation in making an effort to se- cure a man with training on a paid brigade in an outside city. Only the other day Saskatoon engaged as its fire chief a man from the Hamilton, Ont., brigade. The Lethbridge Coun- cil has not hesitated to go outside for other officials and if the right type of fire chief cannot be secured in the city a little advertising ought to bring a bunch of applications from outside places. Osborn Wark, chairman of the erated trades of the Canadian. Pacific railway, and R. J. Shore, chairman; of the Press committee, made to thej Winnipeg Free Press reporter an of- ficial statement with reference to t-he measure of success which the general committee had in its negotiations with the officials of the company. The statement made by the representatives was ID substance as appended, and certainly is very different from the press dis- patch sent out on behalf of the com- pany. mittee the matter was taken up and careful inquiry made. Since the strike certain officials have refused to meet committees. In. some cases there were no committees. It has now been arranged that in every case when a man believes that he has been treated .unjustly the matter can be taken up by the committee and dis- cussed with the officials of the com- pany. The officials must in ail cases meet the committee of "the men. The importance of this arrangement is apparent. SEN'IOKITY RESTORED "With reference to the rights ol seniority, prior to the strike there were certain rights which were enjoy- ed by the men who had. been for some years in the service of tie company. For instance, in case of a, reduction of the staff at the shops, a, man who had been with the company for ten years xvould be retained when men who had been with the company only who are wo The settlement as outlined by Hess- two or three years would 'be discharg ed. Certain other privileges were eu- joyed by the older mem. strike all the men were placed on an equal footing. Under the new ar- A GOOD MAN It is particularly gratifying that the Minister of the Interior has de- cided to promote Mr. A. E. Humph- riea io the position of Immigration afent at this point. He is particular- ly, well (jualiiied for the position. We. question, whether there is a man in the south with a better knowledge of conditions here. A man with wide knowledge is of inestimable value in that position. He can be of great assistance to immigrants in offering adrice and directing them as to the conditions they will have to meet in the new land. Mr, Humphries is a great believer iij the south. He knows its true f. 1 j "vfnt im to mtrtnja plejiafiSU IU prove he makes to the seekers after information. The Herald believes it is a food thing for ieibbridfe and Southern hat been placed in charge of thlii important afenej in succession that very estimable cultured fMrtltwiaii, Charles Mair, who has ban to the new agency, at Omtta, rs. Waxk and Shore is as follows: First, the conference between officials and the committee, extend- ing over some days, was conducted throughout in an amicable and friend ly spirit. In a. case in which so large an amount of money was involved and so many men interested, the mat ter was very keenly fought out and there were naturally at certain points some hot words, but in a few minutes the discussion quieted down and was resumed in good spirit. AH that we sought was an agreement which would be fair to the company and fair to the employees. We are fully satisfied with the result; the company is as well satisfied; and trust that the good relations will continue for many years. A PERFECT UNDERSTANDING reference to the re- port of the board of conciliation which was given last year and under which the men have been since work- ing the employees of the company did not ask that this report should be superseded by a new agreement. It stands as it was written. The re- port was, however, prepared by gen- tlemen who were not acquainted in- timately with the work done in the shops of a railway company, and many of the clauses are capable of arious interpretations. The com- pany interpreted them in one way and the employees interpreted them in another. We approached the com- pany with a view to securing an in- terpretation in each case. For this purpose we prepared a schedule. The company also had a schedule. Each ndividual point in which these sched ules differed was taken up in the onference, and on every one of them we secured an understanding which rangement the rights of seniority are restored. FREE TRANSPORTATION With reference to free transporti- tiou, prior to the strike employees wore able to secure a limited amount of free transportation each year, the amount being to extent limit- ed by the length of service. After the strike this privilege was cancell- ed. As a result of the present nego- tiations tW privilege has been re- st ored. PRACTICALLY A.CLOSED SHOP "In the matter of the open shop s.iid the employment of non-union men, more than ninety-five per cent, of the shop rueu on western lines aro union men. Those who are not in tho union are mechanics whom the unions will not accept. -More than ninety-five-per'cent of the men are now hired by the company union men. No railway ihat know of has an agreement which ex- cludes non-union men absolutely. It would be impossible for us to work such an agreement. The present ar- rangement is entirely satisfactory to us. The actual figures would show that ninety-nine per cent of the me- chanics on Western lines are union men and that ninety per cent, of the new men engaged are union men. When the company engages non-union men, if they are satisfactory, we take them in. PENSIONS "The question of the pensions must be taken up in Montreal. The pen- sion board consists of the president, the vice-rpresident, the second vice-, president and the board of raanage- Eicnt of ths pension fund. The offic- ials with whom we were in confer- ence had nothing to do with the pen- sions. We believe that this.matter will work out its own salvation, and are satisfied with the condition in which this matter rests. NO COT IN WAGES "With, reference to wages, there has been absolutely no reduction in wag- es, in of any of the men in the service of the company. There have been a number of adjustments' in various parts of the country, all of which have been satisfactory to the men. A BARNARDO BOY'S DEATH McGregor, Man., April coroners' jury inquiring into the death of a Barnaxdo boy, Herbert Al- bert Owen, rendered" a verdict that he died from blood poisoning follow- ing a frost bite through the neglect of Richard Hodge to provide medical attention, such neglect- being due to ignorance of the seriousness "of the deceased's condition. Hodge will be charged tomorrow at Portage la Prai- rie with criminal negligence. He is in custody."
