Lethbridge Daily Herald (Newspaper) - January 8, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta Page six the lethrridge daily herald TUESDAY, JANUARY 8, 191S IDE F. A. TO AFFILIATE (C')NTIN'riKD FROM KltONT l*AOa> Delegate Hellamy or .Mediciuo Hat statedr^iat if the Federation desired the support of the farmers in the political field as hud been hinted, that labor ought to be ready to men the farmers arid settle their differences amicably. Delegate Wheatley of Bankhead was very strongly against the resolution, speaking three or four times in bis effort to prevent the resolution from going through. He thought the wage earners and farmers had many things in common. The door should he left open to the farmers and a strong effort made to get them into the orgai-izafion. Delegate Knott. of Edmonton, thought that as the province would be agricultural rather than industrial for many years to come it probably would make very little difference for a while, lie thought also that the fnrmers and the wage earners were the two moil exploited classes in tlie province. Delegate Farmilo was strongly against striking out the U.F.A. for political reasons. Delegate Held said ths I'.F.A. was an organization for the purpose of cutting out the middleman as much at possible and had nothing to do in the industrial field. Another delegate advised the delegates present to go out and work for a farmer and find out. The farmers, he Baid, try to keep down the wages of men who work in the harvest fields, and cases had been known where harvesters had to strike to get wages and decent working conditions. Delegate Vickrage thought the farmers should be kept from the roll but as soon as the farm laborers organized the latter should be taken In. Delegate Tallon thought the wage earners could do their business best in their own organization while the farmers could continue to do their business through the U.F.A. Then let them come together on the political field. A miner delegate who works in a small mine declared that the farmers in his district competed with him during the winter months, cutting the labor cost, 'whereas in summer when he went out to work on their farms he worked from four o'clock in the morning until late at night. He wanted no farmers in the organization. :vTiNn.!> ritOM Frost 1'auh� T. C. Milnes, Ltd., Claresholm has been incorporated with a capital of 5500,000. .

Don't forget the children-their little inaldes need a gentle cleansing, too.-Advert. , Ross explained that the not did not i force merchants to close their stores Ion Saturday evenings but merely to I urrange the hours of labor of the era-! ployees so that they will conform to : the act. Mr. Ross said the Hudson'8 I Bay Co. here had shown a fine spirit I on Saturday last by refusing to open j certain departments duriug the even-j iug because their competitors had [been unable to arrange their staffs-to ; keep open. The company had admit-i ted in print that the act is a benefit | to the employees. Mr. Roper of Kdmonton said the apprentice clause ought to be amended I Delegate Farmilo urged that the ( trades unionists should not seek amendments at this time. He also spoke against the principle of overtime. ; The discussion cf the Electrical ' Workers Act, for which the electricians are asking amendments, was left , over until the committee could secure further information. Master and Servants Act An amendment to this act was put forward by the committee to place employers on the same footing as the employees. The present act, it was claimed, was ail in favor of the employers. Delegate Victrage declared for asking that the act be abrogated, claiming that it was nothing but a piece of legislation to make good fat jobs for the lawyers. Delegate Wheatley was of the same opinion, and on a motion being put to ask for the deletion of the act from the statutes it carried by 36 to 3. Theatres Act Amendments to this act are to be asked in connection with the control of operatives, but the electrical workers asked that consideration be left over and referred back to the committee. Mechanics Lien Act An amendment was urged giving wage earners a prior right in liens against buildings in course of erection, rather than being fifth on the list as is the case now. Delegate Vickvage wanted all law abolished that one had to secure a lawyer to use. The amendment carried, and. will be asked for at tho coming session of the legislature. Against One-Man Cars Amendments will be asked to the Railway Act, declaring for two men, a motorman and conductor for all street ours. Delegate Smeed was named ser-geant-at-arms for the convention.

F. A. hold in the Cnhoim Hall last week. The representatives from the outlying districts were much in evidence, as Aetna, Beazer, Leavltt, liarrisvillo and Glenwood were to the fore with some of their best men. While the Cardston local was started late last spring, it lias bemi a very active union ami lias helped the other locals not a little in buying especially: Nearly $10,000 worth of supplies have passed through this organization in a few short months. The secretary reported some five cars of fruit, two of flour and feed, two of coal, one of potatoes, three of posts and one each of potatoes, posts and onions as having been handled to benefit the farmers. The question of making up a big central union at Cardston is maintaining locals and affiliating with it was discussed at some length as with the hamlet system of settlement the object became more commercial than social in these organizations. � After remarks by .Messrs. \V. G. Smith of Leavitt, H. M. Gardner, president n't Aetna; Edward Leavitt of Glenwood, John F. Farrish, secretary] at Cardston and J. P. Low, first vice-..presideut at Cardston, it was decided to keep the local branches as active as possible and for these to co-operate with the large and more central union at Cardston. .,___ Farmer*' Elevator The project of an elevator for the farmers was discussed and the matter of cold storage and close co-operation with the Cardston Creamery Associa; tion about to build a new plant near the station was explained by Manager Sylvester Low of this organization. Considerable discussion and explanation followed. The elevator question was settled when Mr. John S. Smith, moved and Mr. W. G. Smith gave a second to the following: "That the I'. F. A. organizations centering at Cardston for their market, proceed to build an elevator affiliating with the United Grain Growers," the motion carrying unanimously. ^ 'New Officers The election of new~offic"ers for the Cardston branch of the V. F. A. resulted in a series of acclamations, Messrs. J, H. Anderson (president), J. P. Low (1st vlce-pres.), Thos. A. Anderson (2nd vice-pres.). Jno. F. Parrish (sec-| retary), all haying served so ably as i to unite all present in a desire for I their further efforts. Some new blood > was put in to the directorate elected as follows: L. A. Moore, J. A. Hammer, John S. Smith. E. N. Weeks and Geo. A. Duce being unanimously sustained. The delegates for.- tfie annual (Convention were named as President Jas. H. Anderson, Secretary Jno. F.

It was also decided to hold the regular meetings on the last Saturday of the month at 2 p.m. in the Cahoun Hall and all outlying locals were urged to send representatives on that day. Plowing at Glertwood. The fine weather is causing the ice to go out of the rivers and today word was received by Pres. Wood that plowing was proceeding on Mr. E. A. Law's farm just west of Glenwood. How Is that for January weather? Cars are' running in all directions and the roads are excellent. New cars are being fitted up and the garages are all^ working merrily.

A program of fine songs between the six reels shown, made a splendid evening's entertainment. Regimental song by a double mixed quartette consisting of Mrs. Lexie Burton, Misses Annie and Helen Walker and Mrs. Winnie Brown Wilkins, with MossrB. J. F. Layne, Jno. S., Wra. T. Meridew and A, B. Cure was given a deserved recall, while Master Chas. Walker In his song "Jock Mc-Graw" was encored and responded with "Crack the Whip." A,.soprano solo, "God bring you Safely Homo Again," by Miss Luclla Steed was well received, a% was the mail quintette, "Massa's in de cold, cold ground." A tableau song of the "Dying Soldier by Master Chas. Walker and his sister Joan, was %so well done. Miss Annie Walker gave very sweetly "An Irish Lullaby" and Messrs. A. 13, Cure and Jno. S. Smith in the duet, "Whispering Hope/' made a very, favorable Impression on the large audience. Mr. Walker was eieored in his effort, "The Old Scotch Song," and the closing musical number was rendered by the double m.'xed quartette flrHt. named giving the "National Anthems of the Allies: Belgium, France, Canada, Britain and the United States, coding with God Cave the King."

The Vossische Zeitung of Berlin, says: "This, the first tangible British peace offer, is a fresh indication of our strength and a proof of England's weakness. Peace conditions at the expense of our allies are inacceptable to us: likewise, peace terms offering the return of our colonies in exchange for reinforcement of the British position in Asia. "Lloyd George has made it clear to our allies that the German armies are fighting in the we3t at least as much for them as for Germany." . The Volks Zeitung: "Lloyd George's declarations show a tone in regard to us which is indeed changed, but the old imperialistic aims are wholly maintained. The British premier belies his first declaration that he doe3 not desire the destruction of Germany by his subsequent statement that he wishes to detach Alsace-Lorraine and give to Poland portions of Prussian territory in the east. Despite assurances to the contrary, he also wishes to rob Austria-Hungary and Turkey." The Lokal Anzeigor: "Under a flow of phrase is apparent the old desire to smash Germany's power forever and safeguard England's power forever. The answer to thi3 will be spoken by our armies in the west and by our C-boats." tion, as a sentiment of having accomplished a duty, painful though it may be, yet assigned to us by the leaders of the nation, should be an encouragement to go ahead. We consider in fact, that the conscript has even more merit than his brother in arms, the volunteer. Under the volunteer system, in a great number of cases, the departure of the citizen for the front is subjact to all sorts of considerations which have nothing to do with patriotism or devotion to the great cause. Taste for adventure, family jars and other reasons have determined many volunteers to take part in the .present war. This will not. however, prevent either tho one or the other signalizing by brave acts, as much devotion to the country as any other soldier." ALLEGED SPY HAD Tacoma, Wash., Jan. 7.-Intimate knowledge of Pacific coast fortifications, personnel of the arlny and navy qtri& ability to name almost every American ship sunk by Germany up to last July were possessed by Thomas H.
