The Magrath Coal Co. Making the town a very reason stated that the 1911. season has been ideal for flax.

Now as to what is likely to he done towards a settlement I really couldn't say. 1 am satisfied myself that the strike is in u l-eUer posi- tion as far as the miners are con- curm'd Ibis iimming than it lias ever been. The men and (lie membors of (he executive know exactly where iliey stand, and are therefore in a position to proceed with mi intelli- gent HiidersUmiiiig of what tlip men really want in the matter. Here is the way tins miners look at it. The business men of the general public have raised the prices of the com- modities which we need in our every- day life. Flour winch, is manufactur- ed-from grain "grown here costs one dollar a sack" nfore than it did cieht years ago, when all our flour had to shipped in from the east. All oth- ;r commodities have risen in propor- tion. are compelled to pay these Jriees therefore we must have bet- ter wages The public can readily sec and Hie public, which, forces .us to pay these prices should back us up in Ibis fight. The only" way out of the difficulty now is for the, ojicrators to come down off their high perch, anil agrct to meet us with tlic Macleod anrf Carter reports 'as the outside bases for an agreement.' Until this is dona the strike, as far as the miners are concerned, will go on, and it will go in the same quiet manner which has marked this strike as being one of thf most quietly conducted in the history of the Labor movement any- where in the world.
