Lethbridge Daily Herald (Newspaper) - January 8, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta if TUESDAY. JANUARY 8, 1918 / TUK LliTHHHIDCil'l vAIl J ' herald PAGE NINfl i I 1 I i1 Out of tho travail of two hours' discussion at. Tuesday morning's uuBBlon be the Alberta Federation of tabor wus jborn a now political purty in Alberts. t least tbut 1h what tho GO delegatee prcHent hope will be thfi roHUlt and hey further hope that every other province In the Dominion will take simi-ar action so that a "working class � a convention representative of rrades unions, Non-Partlisan League, Socialist locals, Great War Veteran Associations, Labor Representation eagues and kindred organizations with \i \ lew of forming a working class po-;itical party. Above was the recommendation of might get something on the industrial field by organization hut they would never get anywhere in the political field. Delegate lieid: "Does the delegate mean we ought to tako action along the JinoH of the Bolshevikl?" Delegate Wheatley admitted a great admiration for the -Rubelan Bolshevikl, as did Delegate Held later. Queries Alex Ross A mining delegate wanted Alex Uo�s, M.L.A., of Calgary, to tell the convention whether he was going to Edmonton merely as a lobbyist looking for sops from the old lino parties or whether he intended to stand on the platform of the labor party. He also wanted to know whether he would lino up behind Stewart or*Mlchencr. Delegate Ross admitted the question was a poser, but he was After the sops and anything else he could get by way of legislation favorable to the working man. He aaid trades unions are still the potent factor in securing hucIi leg- PHONE 1224 he executive committee as presented \ islatlon, and he did not expect the pro->v Delegate Farmilo of Edmonton, I P0�rovince, but at that time it was felt liat tho federal elections I would be uceiving the attention of these organizations, some of whom had candidates fn the field, and that It would be wise jo defer action to a later date. I If the recent elections in which la- The question finally came to a vote anil the executive was instructed to act by a vote in which there were only three dissenters. Other Business HusmcRs proceeded much more smoothly after the political field was left behind. Amendments to the Mines Act are to be asked, asking among other things that the employment of Asiatic labor in or about the mines of the province be abolished, that a minimum rate of wages be named, that emeregncy hospitals be established at the surface ot all mines carrying a full (equipment of first aid materials, jior contested thirty-eight seats with | Priding for the payment of miners \io success, teach us anything it should te the necessity for a strong organiza-c /Ion and a fundamental policy, tor dur-. jng the recent campaign While we had jhirty-eight representatives of la?>Ttr as candidates we had nearly as many tfiiS erent platforms. It must be apparent that while this. Exists It will be impossible for labor to ficcomplisu much politically and we fcuhmit for your consideration the advisability of labor agreeing on some .indamental principles and the uniting pf the various labor, farmer, Socialist, i-'abian and similar organizations into fm(j party provincial wide. This we Sielieve would be the first step toward |iie linking together of these organizations Dominion wide which -must ulti-jnately come if we are-to achieve any egree of success in the political field. Great Deal of Debate r There was a great deal of debate [�ver the recommendations. Delegate on the mine-run basis, and asking for an examination for all persons working in mines their competency to do so. The convention decided to press for an early closing act to be applied to ali retail stores throughout the province Jti order to remove soma ot the apparent discrimination caused by the Factory Act and thus strengthen the hands of the workers who support tho Factory Act already on the statute hooks. 'Bi-monthly pay for all workers, organized or not. was also asked. The government will also be urged to pass a fair wage act similar to that in force in Manitoba where a fair wage board has been provided by the government, rroyincial sanitary conditions came in for some consideration and the government will be urged to enforce tho present health act to the limit even to requiring ice to be kept in the ice koid, whoso socialistic tendencies have- P.0XeB iu Ule kitchens of all construe een insula well known during this onvontjon, thought that any attempt u call together tho various organiza-ions named for the purpose of finding oiiie new basis for political action /ould result In failure. The Non-Par-issan League, he said, had nothing in ommon with organized labor, 90 per ent of them being diametrically op* oscd to the ideals of organised labor, juul to invite this organization to a i onvention would mean that the labor ion would be swamped and would ave to accept a platform dictated by ie Non-Partizans. Delegate Wheatley of Bankhead, al-o opposed the motion declaring that . would merely result in the new or-anizfttlon running a few rods behind ie old lino political parties all the mc with the sumo old disastrous results. He said the convention had failed yesterday to hold the farmers in no affiliation. Now they are asking lat the farmers join them In the poll-cal field. If the two classes cannot rt e eye to eye in the industrial field 3iere is less chanco than over that, ^ey will be able to do so iu the poli-5eu! field. He declared the workers tion camps throughout the province during the-summer months in order to keep the food palatable.
