I think that if tho Minister of Labor would trea; toth elements in the same way, aud do his utmost to bring ahoul better relations between tho employers aud the em- ployees, be. would bo doing something which would make the administration of his department worlh -while. This geoltemau refers lo the mailer of wages as connected -with the com- missioner's .report. He says: number of Xanalmo miners, as well as tho mayor, testified boroi the Labor Commission referred to l._ the quotation. They told of (on- wag- es, 'blacklists, discrimination, obedience laws, robbery and other Injustices.suffered by the men.

The existence of powerful armamenls nmongsl the lirsl-class powers is Ihe best guarantee of peace. It emphasizes Ihc Bib- lical. Iruili of a strong man armed keeping Iris goods in safely. With regard lo Hie. pressing taxation ou the workers of Great Britain does this uol arouse us in the Dominion to a sense of our duly. Are we to remain inactive and content for others li> see to.our protection? Does not the matter of doing something to lake onr share in the burden of Empire become imperative?

This does uot eslst at the present time, lmt it Is felt that the minister in charge of the department Is not atix- loys to brine about better relations between cauiial acd labor. Thla very strike in Vancouver Island. is an in- stance of It. It was established here today that no serious efforts, no pro- longed efforts, were made by the min- ister to sellle tills trouble. 1 nouder if this has anything to do with the parlies who aVe in control of soir.e of llifj mines In Vancouver Island. These parties are very in touch with this government They have been able lo get latge subsidies for some of their railroads. Is It possible that theyare so much in touch with this government that they nave the ear ol the sovernmer.t in regard to labor disputes in industries in which they are concerned?
