The' position of the miners and the opcrotors with regnrd to the wo.rk-insf of this is well given -hy the Calgary Herald. � Briefly the miners' jiosition is this After the breaking up of the joint conference in Calgary, each siy the Crow's Kost I'ass Coal Co., Ijtd., to their employees and to such of them �as are members of the United Mine 'i Workers of America, District No. IH, , that the following scale of pricosand I the following terms and conditions HbaU lie in otTect and govern the parties for two year.8, commencing May jlO, A.D., 1907, the Crow:s VestPaes Coal company being willing to meet in conference sixty days prior to May 10, i.I)., 1909, to discuss a renewal of scales and comlitions. Thescscnles and conditions are to govern all mines, cokeo vens, and outside plants oi^rated Ijy the Crow's Nesl I'ass Coal C)., lA(i." The scai'e of wages is too long to reproduce, but it involved reductions about eipml to or more than the increases asked l"(;r by the miners. The consequeiici? of this l]Onvl) shell was groat indignation amongst the man. and as a result,ol' a muss meeting the referoiidum was taken to decide practically whether tliey would strike or not against these terms. The result oj that vote is now wi'II known foi- an overwhelming majority of the men voted for a strike. The adroit part of the whole busi-nessis that although this vnte �as taken, and whether it was intended to tw! u.sed in this way or not, t ho nutljorit.v for strike had to \h: obtained liy Sherman according to the new law; the men have in a most iTiystorious wii.v come out on a "walk out." and the instructions ai-o np. parentl.v untraceable. The excuse is that the men have taken tho law into their own hands. Of course, common sense w-il! itcll us all that this is merely a very good tactical move on the part of the miners' leaders, but whether it will stand good as a valk out, or be defined as a strike will rest with the ,mini.stor of labor. The niiinister himself, in his lok-grams to Sherman alreail.v nmdc public, definitely states that the operators' notice of reduction of wages and change of comlitions is of no use, and that conditions re -iiwin the same as they wore befoi'o the pending investigation. The miners, through Sherman, demand an 8-hour day fronv bank to bank in Alberta, and an all round oflvanco of 10 per cent, and the payment of wages twice inonlhl.v. Jn other res|K'cts conditions can ronuiin the same, and tho.\ won't kick about open shop clause, or anything else. The position of the operators is clearly stated in a tolegrani sent Hon. f{. I.emiieu.v by the Western Coal Operators A.ssciciatioii in which they sa.v: The only notice posted was a copy of the operators' application for the appointment of a board of conciliation, notice of which is i'e(.|uired by stiltuto anl of which .vou ac-knoulo/lgerl on April IJl. .Shormon lUsed the necessary statutory notification to employees as a pretext to lincito all niiners to go on strike. All the union officials were aware thot our notice was merely a coiiir pliance with the statutes and that the directors were absoIutel,y pro -hduiwl fromi altering the terms of ejnployment resijocting wages or hours pending investigation. The miners coiit iimed work until the district officials visited each camp,when they nnmc^ Albert, N.U'.T an the embodiment at?per limcntary finiiabiUty and fine fetflnc: and if one made auch  aelaotiolt ,1m would find after Uatiidiiji. a dar or two to th� debates that to iMdaiade a mistake. Mr. Fowler's face iscer-tainly a strong one, there is much deterinjnatlon' in it, great' will power and keen intelligence, but withal it . is the face of a nian who nwkes his way hy mcuiis of strenuous piiahful-uess rather than by conciliation ami sunny smiles. When he ia on his feet in the ilouse, everything about the man suggests that he is the adversary of soma one- "Belligerent'' is stamped all over him,, on everything he says or docs. His whole attitude is that of a fighter. His gestures ar* always emphatic and there is a'good deal of the clinched fist and siting, ing arm about them. His toaeiwhsn not taunting, is defiant and Iw'Hngs out what he has to say with � clsar-ncss that leaves no doubt as tio'' his meaning. Mr. Fowler belongs tothat class commonly known as "bom fighters."! His ability in this direction has hod during the present sshs-ion iirotty full scope,-Toronto' Saturday Night.
