This conference will centre attention on the western route, which, promises to be the means of putting- money in the pockets of! Alberta farmers. It has already suited in bringing the shipper, the' elevator man and the railroad official together enabling them to exchange views.

Howley of Calgary, in a pa- per read before the convention touch- ed on. tils-matter as follows: The'very obstacles in the way of east frow Alberta are the peculiarly attractive features of the Western route. While Winnipeg and Fort William only handle Alberta as a side line, Vancouver, iiew or Prince Rupert's pros pects depend enUrely upon the west- ern shipment of Alberta grain- The reduction ha the cost of transporta- tion by the western rpute, as com- pared with the eastern, means as much, to the farmers .auct men of .Alberta as if the province had been moved several Jhiundred miles nearer to the market, and giviw a wonderful advantage to the Alberta grain producer over his pros pects If this route proves feasible, as we believe it does. .Speaking ftp- proxunately; if a large volume of Albert grain was moving westward instead of eastward each car dur- ing the season when the pressure is strong, would carry two loads to one it would carry eastward. It is also claimed that there would be less disorganization of traffic; there would not be the very great pres- sure to handle a large proportion: of traffic between September and Nine From Trades Congress Of Canada Disputes Disputes. have been almost too a-aruprons to mention during- the past year. Happily most of them have only bf'en small affairs. Strathcona Dispute. This dispute was one that arose owing .to to the uni- versal depression. We had succeed- ed in .making a satisfactory- agree- ment, giving the men an increase in wages, together with a shorter work- ing day of eight hours. The com- pany saw fit to .repudiate the agree- ment in its entirety. Thfi-men quit work, their places were quickly filled, and in order to test the 'legality oi our agreements an action was taken in the Supreme Court at Ed- monton against the company. We won the suit for wages, but "lost'the suit for damages, Judge Stuart hold- lug that the onion could not enforce its collective agreements in law courts. We appealed, but finally de- cided :to withdraw our case on' the ad vicf-1 of counsel. Michel Disputes. "-In the. of May considerable friction developed at which finally ended in the Local Union quit- tingivork, contrary to my advice. I took the position that two wrongs' never made a right-, and ordered the local to resume .operations pending a settlement. This, upon the advice: of their local leaders, they refused to do, the company' refusing to settle the matter in dispute until work was resumed. A mass meeting of the Fernie. miners was held and. the mat-' ter threshed out, and the meeting- siudrtl by the FMTUC men advising the Mfclu-l men to resume operations and place the matter in dispute in the bands of the district officers. j This was and we finally got the twelve men reinstated whom the company refused to re-employ.

During the- last session of the Al- berta Legislature I was called to Ed- monton to assist the lobbyists sent there by the last District .Convention. Our efforts were- successful, and we now have in the statute-book of Al- berta a Workmen Compensation Act, and the eight-hour law bank to bank working day, together with the coal mine regulations. I strongly recom- mend that these lawb be fully en- forced in the interest of our mem- hers, and that we watch the effect" of jour enemies to have these laws re- pealed or amended in their favor, and do all in our power to retain what we have, and to keep up a constant flffhkjorijpffl'stetJfrWir interest of __.. workers.

He showed that the crop" increase in 1908 was ,10 per cent, and the C.P.R. had increased tbo quantity handled by 183 per cent.
