THE RETURNED SOLDIERS AND THE ALIEN We do not particularly blame the Great War Veterans for the stand they have taken In the Pincus The alien enemy question is one which has been troubling the authorities in all the belligerent and while Britain and the United States seem to have gone much farther than we have nevertheless a perusal of British rfnd papers from time to time will show that the trouble has not yet been John Bull1 has been making a great campaign tor closer watch on the alien This has been based on the menace of the German spy and ot course It has been a very important In the while there are thousands of alien enemies on the freedom ot these people is being curtailed greatly from time to There is no doubt that there has been much about the alien enemy pol icy of the Domlnibn that has been and which tends to arouse the anger ofthe Great War The effective plan of dealing with the trouble would be to intern all alien but this would have such a depressing effect on

putting the government in tict water with tha returned sol As the war goes on and more and more soldiers there is bound to be a growing demand for a more suitable policy of a general One of these is advanced by the Great War Veterans In a resolution to the effect that the alien enemy labor be and that his earnings over and above the pay of a soldier should go to government This would be an ideal though whether it could be carried out in a practical way we are not sure We know that at the begin ning of the war when a labor was glut on the organized labor was opposed to the It savored too much of placing organized labor in competition with prison and the labor men would not countenance there is a demand for labor on every and the plea of unfair competition would not enter In to the ThOj government should give the veterans proposal every consideration before turning down the It is certain that some other plan for hand ling the alien must be adopted if trouble is to ba Mounted ot

impossible but when one is confronted every three or four months with a statement from the dir ector of coal operations of this dis trict that the wages ot all coal min ers must be raised 20 or 25 cents per day the need of price fixing in order to arrive at a basis for wages Is at onoa apparent Tka increases granted to the min ers under the plan of increasing tbe dally wage according to the
