Mr. Gilro.y's many friends will regret to kuow Unit ho leaves the Pass this time probably j or good It is ulmoHt three years he first cumc to Coleman, having come from Indian Head, Sask., to lill a. posi- tiou 'in McIfityrc'K siore. About u year ago Mr. Gilroy accepted a posi- tion with the Western Aleminiile of Blairmore and hus IX.H.-H with thaf firm until the present. Jt is under stood that he nov enters the employ ATTENTION, MR. DEFENDS ACTION OF THE MACHINISTS The following letter in reply to two editorials attacking the C. P. R. ma- chinists was sent to the Ottawa Cit- cnjoyed. izen: Dt-ar attention has been cjtlitd to the editorials in your issues of Aug. 7 and 8 lioaded "The C. P. R. Large Question." J- en- tirely agree with your statement that arbitration is an excellent thing, also that arbitration is ppw.erless when one party has decided on war from the outset. But I entirely disagree with your editorial statement wherein you say: "The company evidently did not want trouble" The company has been the aggres- sor all through. The primary cause of the need of a board was the ag_ :-'jsive action of the company in can- celling the schedules of its employees in the mechanical department on western lines, and a statement that the schedule of the employees in the car department on western lines would also be cancelled on the ex- piration of the award given by a board and mutually agreed to last December. Therefore, I say the eompanTV did want trouble, and it is they, and not the' men who had'decided on war. In fact, one of their officials admitted -to our secretary-treasurer that they had expected trouble and had prepared to cope with it. I agree with you the This'is absolutely incorrect. And not j and the conditions that we hitherto until the company pretty well satisfied that'the men would refuse to accept the MAJORITY FINDING. not until then did they notify the department of their acceptance of the board's findings. Therefore, the actual fact is that neither the com- pany nor the men agreed either tac- itly or formally to accept tin- findings of the board either on the formation of the board or at any part of the at Edniontoii, who was ulso until about a year ago a resident of the Pass. Air. Giiroy's geniality won for him many warm friends iutd all will wish him success in tho provincial capital. Thos. Plau.te build a new two storey residence nenr the opera houeo Mr. Anthony of Midu'l hits leased the Eagle Boarding House and will I think you will allow then that! the- strike was not brought on inten- tionally by the men at a critical mo_ mont, but that the time canif around in the natural order of events. The company lighted the fuse on the 1st of April; the arbitration board timed the explosion, which took place on August 5, causing a great industrial upheaval, for which no one is to 1st. over s Some improvements luivc lately proceedings. You say when thev blame only a greedy, grasping cor- found the decision was against them the employees refused to be bound by it. Why "not toll the whole truth and say. that when the company found that the decision was for them AND NOT TILL TWEN DID THEY AGREE TO ACCEPT IT. Moreover, the company violated the spirit of the award by arbitrarily putting it into effect without first conferring with the committe and drawing up joint schedule embodying these chargl es. You make a great play of words" on the men choosing the time to call a strike. .Now let me correct you. We did not choose this time. The company chose the time when they cancelled our May 1st. The men took the only legitimate course open to them to defi-nd thc-ir rights and used (he only effective protest they possess at the. present time, i.e., the strike, just as soon as tiie company positively.- declared poration, who thought to take ad- vantage of the depression in business and add to their already large store of wealth by trimming u lilttle of the wages of certain of their employ, ees, who they thought would be powerless to resist on account of company wore not'anxious for arbi- themselvK3 and the been tration; they expected the men would be so aroused by the attack which threatened their very existence as an organized body, and if successful would deprive them of all right to do any collective bargaining for the sale of their labor and the conditions un- der which the same should be sold, and further, would leave every man in Uscse di-partments attacked, to the tender mercies of the officials, with- out any protection, such as hitherto has been'afforded by committees who would compel at'least some "shew 'of investigation into all grievances they expected the men would defy the Lemieux act and go out on strike. Now, there is another wrong im- pression that your editorial of the 7th would give to any person nol crmversaut with the facts, tha' the company had agreed from the outset to accept the board's finding complied with. You state the in_ .erssts of the men naturally loom argc in their own eyes. But at this particular juncture they dwindle al- most to the vanishing point in the iyes of the people of Canada. .In reply I say, self preservation is the first law of nature, and all the people of Canada are not so blind as The would seemingly like them to be. And the 'wage workers of Canada nnd lots of farmers are looking on with both an interested and encouraging look on the struggle of these employees to maintain thei rights against this giant corporation which owes all its greatness anc wealth to the people of Canada. The company is today spending more in unnccesary special police, principally hired from foreign detec- tive agencies, than would pay the difference for a long period in con- ditions that the majority award gave .their having been through a period of months of halt time and some even less. In conclusion, I agree with you in part that it is not right that a law should jeopardise the interests of the many. In this, instance the few who are doing the jeopardizing act are a few f the company's officials, by re- using to at least give the men a share f the prosperity by leaving the con. litions and wages unchanged, and I Move the right-thinking public agree with, me in placing the )lame where it belongs.

The prospectus of a laud company which The Manitoba Free has oublishsd for the ol readers contains matter for a variety of reflections. The prospectus in ques- tion is signed by Hugh Armstrong, "director resident in Canada." Mr. Armstrong is the representative in the Manitoba Legislature of Portage la Prairie. The prospectus in question i.s of the Western Wheat Londs Timber Company, and it st-ts forth that a syndicate has purchased from the Manitoba Government acves of Provincial lands, and that these had been turned up to date railway service.
