Since the enactment of the Industrial Disputes Investigating Act, eighteen applica- tions in all have been received by the Minister of Labor for the estab- [lishment of boards of conciliation and- investigation in railway dis- putes, some of them involving ques- t-ions of an extremely difficult nature and it is gratifying to the department that in all these disputes, with the exception of that of last summer re- lating to the machinists to be em- ployed on the Canadian Pacific Rail- way, a settlement has been achiev- ed without resort to either strike'or lockout.
