MentMB ye�r grocer's Mm and Dept 113, eed write KnIJht's So|ar Facttry, RsfiaeaS DELAYED Ottawa, Feb. 7.-In the house yesterday Sir Wilfrid Lnurier inowd that tho resolution of llorron of Al-l�rta. be called at onco. lie did this l.ccausci, otherwise, it would not le reached. This resolution was for the appointment of a committee of nine for the purpose of inquiring into the price of lumbor, which is re-gird ?d as exceisivo in the provinces of Minitola. Saskatch-wan ami lic-rta. f r papers and examino witnesses on oath. Tho resolution was carried. been with matters legislative. A meeting of the district olllcials was held at tho hoad-Muortcrs at Blairmore Friday to consider, It is understood, the legislation tho present session of the legislature will lie aski�.l to enact. Among the requests to lie innidc of th? Li-gislalure are an eight hour day and a workmen's coinimnsat ion arti whilo a hy-weokly pay day will he nsked. Tho rejUPSt for an eight hour day by-law, It is understood, is to carry �ith it a proposal to attach a !��-alty to working underground more than eight hours in any capacity. It is said tlnro is likely to be strong opposition to a Penalty clause in an eight hour day law. an. while tho mine operators do not, onject to the eight hour day being gronto.l hy law, they do not want tho penally for working overtime owing to the A|- conditions peculiar to coal mining UV SNOW AND CATTLE. Also to be permitted to send nttiiuu. out Ol the car situation. These condit ions make H necessary to work a ten hour loading shift. In order to do that drivers, trappers, brattice men, etc., work ton hours, being paid for two hours overtime. Jf these men were prohibited from working .overtime, although paid for doing so, it would cut down th) output of tho mines very consider -�bly and at some of tho mines never get more than enough cars to load a ten'hour shlfti, the operators say It will be Impossible to make up for tho reduced output except by loading two shifts. It is on theseground ing two thifts. It is on thes^ grounds that the opposition to tho penalty clasue Bill bo based. It is not considered likely however, that the government will grant" a provision so manifestly adverse to tho interests of the coal mining in-whllo there is little doubt thut the straigfci oit,trt hour day as providod in the present ajfreeiiients, will l>g enacted into law.
