' The Lemleux Act is another debat- able point with the miners. During the year they ;claim to- have had trouble in obtaining an arbitration board under the Act;-, They are not disposed either to view with .favor the chairmen apointed by the government as heads of these boards. That the Act is not practicable is their opinion, and it is likely .-that tliey will take uteps to have legislation introduced to amend the Act iq. some particulars. During the .year the various labor unions existing .In Albert a (have affiliated under the faame of the Alberta Federation of Labor, and at the first election Vice President J. O.

"The law lords of the Privy Council have drawn the pen of judicial authority through the whole great doctrine of Provincial sovereignty. A provincial parliament Is a mere county council under the ruling of the Privy council in the Alberta case." "The Privy council is developing more and more into a Judicial George the Third in its'relationship to the Anglo-Saxon communities of this continent. The Privy council has'thrust Itself into the position towards the provinces of Canada that the United States Supreme Court occupies towards.the States and Conflress of the American union. The Alberta decision leaves patriotic British loving Canadians without the; shadow of an excuse.for clinging to their ancient faith in the usefulness of appeals to the foot of the throne."
