I Place Your The Editor ofJLetlibridge Herald, Dear short lime ago our City Fathers made quite a fuss about enforcing th.2 drayman's license. Since then their fuse must have blown out as there are some 50 teams working in the city steadily, enjoy. -ing perfect freedom as far as we know. There is not a sign of a li- 'cense tag "attached to them. I! our worthy City Fathers have made some secret bargain with them why not let us in thi show, snd then, mum would be the word. I may "say here, that that is not necessary as the grading contractor has a good price for his wort and reaps a rich har- vest without ever turning one shovel full. If the others have not the price where is the fault? I may say here that the draymen in this city are the most abused of any license hold- ers on the roll. The hot Is, of course, allow no intruders, and the same may be said of many others." But the man that works ,hard for his living, and in proportion to his re- ceipts, contributes for more than any other licensj hold r in our city to- day, I trust something will be done at an early date to remedy this un- fair proceeding and put our working men on th same basis as the other man. I remain, yours truly, A TEAMSTER. 4 Orders for :ji ....WITH....

P. R.'-'system, 'and is as follows. Organized labor lias to answer for many things, and tha action of the employees on the Canadian Pacific Railway iu leaving their work today will be condemned by some having little knowledge of the cause, and caring and in some instances by those cut cf sympathy with the move- ment as instanced in the local monu; ing English speaking paper. Thiiik- ing people, however, are fast getting to understand that before-there, can be a strike of such magnitude, there must'be a cause for and while the history of this one has been very fully reported in western papers little has been published of an eriw lightening nature in this city by-those in a position to influence public opin- ion. The dispute arose through the company's abrogating schedule agreements on the western lines, and posting certain rules in' the shops. The purpose of this act recog- nzed by the as an effort to reduce wages, and eventually destroy the or- ganizations. The men had been working time all winter oh westi crn while on the eastern lines, where no attack had been made, full time had been the rule. This discrim- ination was believed by the men to have for its object the destruction of organized labor in the the eastern men lay in fancied security. Subsequent events have- proven this bc-lief founded. The men east and west belonging to one, .and the same organization "determined to resist the but before-anything could be done after the refusal of the company to with- draw the posted notices, application had to be made under the law for an investigation "trito the dispute by a board'Appointed by the government. In answer to the criticism, "Why did the men apply for a board and then refuse its I say the only defence organized labor has is the power to strike, end -the law having deprived us of that power, we were compelled to make apltcation for a board, which' was done in April, 1906. The application made by the men was for a board to investigate and wich questions arising on both vcstem and eastern lines, stating to he department it was impossible to conciliate one-half of the organiza- tion while the pther half was on strike or disputing with company. While es OIA lines.- The secondary cause of the was the ed oppoeitin of the company to the inquiry and. the 'hindrances thrown in-the way of proper investigation. The immediate cause of strike was the arbitrary action of the com- pany in posting notices in the shops in lieu ol a mutually compiled sched- ule agreement. (Signed) BELL HARDY.

It will be remembered that they arr- experi- menting in the growth of beets at these points with a view to establish- ing a refinery if the same is worked to a satisfactory conclusion. The findings of Mr. Redd will be closely followed by the peopb here and else- where in the Province as the culture of sugar beets is one of the coming industries and no doubt but what th; best success will attend their cultivation in the Calgary dis. trictr Prine; Saslc., Aug.

The ma- jority findings signed by the chair- man of the board and the company's representative, deal lightly with the questions vital by the men, and in some instances the con- clusions are inconsistent There is evidence of snap judgments, lack of understanding o: intelligent consid- eration of what their finding meant, little attention to detail, the whole be- ing a weak attempt at compromise. The minority report submitt d by the men's representative shows up many of the inconsistencies, and whin both appeared little doubt was entertain d by either the company or the com- mittee looking after the men's in- terests, on" how the men would vote.

However, the company proceeded against the spirit of the claim io nave accvplttr; and against the U-tt.T of the award which calls for the incorporating of the award into a consolidated agree- ment mutually signed in conference fit Wir.r.ips-g and Montreal.
