Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - February 4, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta THE LETHBRllkiE DAILY" flEhA^Lb MONDAY, I'lilBIlUAUY 4, 1918 Revolution Will Overthrow the Capitalists, Says Forum Speaker "The Iiiduatrial Cliallcnge." was discussed ftt tUo Forum yesterday after-jiooii'bv T. K incnt. Ho went on lo state that the present social unrest among the workers induced as it is by unjust dividends beiuK made by the capitalistic corporations, was forcing the world to the new order, and exhorted those who believe that the now order is coming to prepare. People suspect that thtvsocialists are unable to handle the big affairs of social ownership entrusted to them. This is shown by sec-par lianicut. The socinli.sts must now show in a practical manner that they are prepared for the task. .Mr. Smith thought they might show this in some way by co-operative ownership of an Indnstr.v by a trades union. He said enough money had been spent by the miners of this district in the Iftll strike to aqquire and equip a, mine capable of turning out J200 tons of coal a day. Had they acquired such a mine and made a success of it as n labor union and on the socialistic basis the revolutionaries would have had a talking point. ^layor llardio nioved a vote of thanks to the speaker which was' heartily accorded. One Variety Socialism \V. Symonds said Mr. Smith had been preaching one of the 57 varieties of socialism. He said he was glad the miners of this district had nefer tried as yet to take over the means of production and predicted that iii a few years "white coal" would supplant the coal now used. The rea.son the revolution in Hussia U'ad created such chaos was that the Russians were not educated. "If the time should come here we A-ould be ready for it." H. W. Johnston of Aldersyde, a leader in the Non-Partlzan League made a whirlwind five jninute speech in which he took Issue with Mr. Smith that tliere was really a difference be tween the farmers and other workers. He spid the world must go through a period of government ownership before the time Mr. Smith spoke of shouw come, but said first of all the people must own the governments. The standards of living are changing. It used to be fashionable to go out and hiake a million dollars. Sir Wm. Fla velle made several millions in haom and then spent thousands in apo'ogiz-Ing to the people of'Canada. Standards of religious and other elucation are also changing. Jfr. Johnston said tha people must not expect their edn-iicction from the newspapers because "Frelt-MIVBS" Relieved tills Chroiiic Trouble 6S9 CASaRAlS Strkkt,' MOSTBRAL.,. "In my opiuion, no other roecliciife Is so curative Tor,Constipalioa and Intlieeslion as 'Fruil-a-tive.'!'.

Mayor Hardio said Mr. Smith had left human nature with Its ambitions and perversities out of the argument, and that appealed to htm as thb one big .obstacle to such a system as had been advanced. Without capable and intellectual leadership such a plan would never work. It might be people could be educated to see it that way and overcome the obstacle but it would have to be tried before it could be known whether it would succeed. W. A. R. Cocq was the last to discuss the question. He Wondered if there was so much In the word 'revolution', as the speaker would indicate. In Great Britain tor the past fifteen years there has been a labor party. As a result of this the effect is anything but of revolutionary tendency. Contrarily, the whole Inclination has been to" raise the standard of living amongst those classes that most need it. If there is any talk of a 'revolution' it comes from some soair-bo.v orator or agitatoV. Mr. Smith replied briefly. Music was supplied by Miss Kenny and -Mr. Coombs, both of whom sang solos very acceptably. S. S. Dunham will be the speaker next Sunday. some "announcements may be forth' coming frotn ^hc fuol controller which win be of-more than ordinary interest to the mine operators and minors t^f the- district. Dlscu.ssiiig the situation one local operator this' morn:nB tt)ld the IlovaUl that In hl.M opinion the fuol controller^ should announce as ,3oou as possible how much U. S. coal will bo available for ^Manitoba and Saskatchewan tills year, and'then let the .Vlbertn mine owners know how much they will ha*e to make up during tlio summer months to supply the additional demand. "It we knew this we would bo able to plan our work for the summer. AVe expect a good summer run in any event, as wo are getting storage orders already, but we should not have a slack day all yean 1 don't think we would'if'the fuel controller would let the coal deafers know just exactly whatjto expect. Coal Will Storo, "There is a pnejudlcc against Alberta coal In Manitoba, (ho dealers.declaring that it won't store. We know-some of the northern coal will not store, but the best proof that the domestic coal from "the Lethbridge 'district will store is that the prairie dealers are storing it, more and raorfc ev ery snmmei'. Given reasonably fair protection fronivthe weather lump coal from the mines in this district will go through the summer with very little waste. The docal mines should therefore be kept busy every day, and miners from the Drumhcllor and other fields where summer coal cannot be Could Use 600 More Men , .~ � "Wo. c^uld -use BOO indro .men throughout the summer imd get out n great deal more domestic coal for hext winters needs If a llttlo organizing were tlono by the fuel controller." : C.
