Tile'position of the minors nml the operators with regard to tho work-ini{ of this chime is u(.|| given by the Cnlgury Herald Briefly the miners' position is this After the breaking up of the joint conference in Culgnry, each side returned homo, the miners having through their representatives given notice for nn investigation board, iiccording to the new act. Shortly after their rut urn the following not -ire was posted "Notice is hereby given by Hie Crow's Mont I'uss foul Co., Ltd., lo Ihi'ir employees and to such ol" them as are nienibors of the United Mine Workers of America, District Xo. \H, that the following scale of prieosund tho following terms and conditions shall bo in olToct and govern the pur-tlos for two years, commencing May 10, A.I).. 1907, the Crow:s VestPass Con! company being willing to meel in confer, nee sixty days prior to May It).

Of course, common sense will 'tell us all that this is merely a very good tactical move on tho port of the miners' loaders, Imt whether it will st it in I good as a valk Hit, or be defined as a strike w illresi with the minister of labor. The minister himself, in his id,-urams to Sherman nlivady made public, definitely slates that the opera tors' not ice of reduction of wages and change of conditions is of no use, and that conditions must iv -main the same us ihe.v were before Iho ponding investigation. The millers, through Sherman, de iiiaiul an H hour da> from bank |o bunk in Alberta, ami an all rniiml advance of in per cent, and the payment of wages twice monthly.

All th" union olllcials wore aware that our notico was merely u cons- trict olllcials \isitod each camp.when they immediately lift en masse. Any statement that m> strike exists is absurd in face of the fuel that the men have quit in all the collieries nt the direct notification of Sherman anil the union olllcials.
