Can. ..ada has not hud enough contend with during the past year. Because of this astonishing" lack of difiicultiw, therefore, the C. P. H. and eight thousand of its jnechamcji have got. into u fight that proinU--5 to tie up that-whole'railway's .system up, right iii the midst of .the season when the greatest wheat crop in the history of should be hand- led. Much will be said few days concerning the justice of the cause'of each party to this dis- pute. Each party will be blamod by the friends of the other for n-i'ving caused thc trouble, and .this recrbn- ination will rage mtrely for. the pose oi clouding the issue. That K. sue, however, ahould be so understood by the people of Canada .-that there should be no pos- sibility of such tactics proving suc- cessful. As is stated on another page of.this issue, .striking men, while. they rn.iy seem to be: the aggressors, "are not, so. They .are making no Who .is to be blamed for .tins' condi- imt has thus rudely been forced r who wi-rit on "Strike rather than ac- cept 'new conditions 'that were much less favorable to them than wovc- the conditions under which they had worked for years, or the company that insisted on enforcing those ne-y conditions? If the C.fP. R. were an ordinary private corporation that ow- :ed no: duty to'the public, that ques- tion might not bj difficult to.answer. The C. P. R. being a great franchise holding corporation, great public answer to the question is-not. far to seek. .Every' dollar's .worth of railway, rolling stock and equipment, land, ;tc'., that the C. R. owns today i! got from the people of Canada. It owes its very existence to, the un- qualified generosity of the Canadian public. These scores of millions, oi dollars' worth-pf property it obtained is'a .gift of such generous proportions is to astonish the world. There can be little doubt then as to the relations th at shpuldl.-fic.iss .between the.. com. pany'and the- public that has so. rich- ,0 .a great extent, and render puMn-j ;er traffic on the road eVen more dan. is 'than It has been In. the which'''the record for the put few years shows to lte> quite and 'altogether too exciting to be con- ducive to ni rvous repose. Bui this is not all. Jf the1 men of the mechan- ical department, find that they are not going to be able to carry their point in u reasonably short time, it is not unlikely, indeed it is highly pro- bable, that the men of other depart- the be called out in sympathetic strike; Thia would completely paralyse the road Ijy making the moving oi trains im. it UTunt b'C UTlucIotC hat the demand for engineers y exceeds the supply, while the train crews are also thoroughly organised union mwu. However unpleasant the situation may be, the only sane and manly thing to' do with it is to face it, and attempt to_. overcome it. The situa. Jon that has been Created by this otrike on the C.P.R. is not only un- throutc-ns to become dis- astrous. If the C. P.
