These men who are receiving this miserable pittance have to pay per week for their keep, not to speak of the high rate which is charged for the uso of heavy con ts for this weather, etc., and-when they have settltd up nil these items, they have just sufficient to buy a chunk of chewing aa'i one of the 1'aborers so well, expressed it. To John Gunn ,-Sons, I would like to propound this Did they in submitting their figures for the contract for the building of this bridge include only 17 1-2 cents per hour for laborers? No sir, I say em- phatically not. than likely it would be 30c or 35c, but it would ap- pfar they are taking advantage of the hard times existing present. There is such a thing as 'an Concilia- tion Uoard in this country; and it on- ly requires a petition from a number of these laborers to bring this board here, and I -should be astonished to learn aftei> they have heard not only, the price quoted Jii the contract but ior living in Lethbridge that they would allow such a miserable state''oi affairs to prevail. In tho meantime it is to the interest of the large body of rneti to get organized and when this h'as been effected the Trades 'and .Labor _Council Avill have'something'to say, and it will be said in no uncertain voice.. In order to. give all laborers chance to join their union, the meet- ing was adjourned until 2.30 tomor- row (Sunday) .when a cordial invita- tion is given to all be present. As at the former meeting those who' are not strong to form locals of their own are in- and strongly urged to be pres- ent. The laborers holt! a Federal Charter from the American Federa- tion of Labor and have the''necessary, power to take into their union these men. Come along anyhow, and hear what is to be said at tfie bridge what is to be said and get a compar- ison of the wages at the bridge and under organized'labor. the couruil table. When a man is doing city business ho has a right to cut loose from everything cxcept'tho i'd'tsrests of all those who pu-t him in the seat of hon- or but those who' ire pivi to an advertising medium. The cuts too, cannot be taken as the originals to the best ad vantage In a beauty competkioh by mail, I feel safe in asserting that a yard of photos taken at random from the rogues' gallery, would win in a can- ter if put up against the aggregation of prcseiitmcnts given us in the 'pages of the Wheat licit Review. The cuts of the so-called represen- tative homes .are -disappointing also. Several or the handsomes't residences in the city have been entirely over- looked rmparently.'
