TO AFFILIATE (continwru FROM FRONT PaOIU Delegate Bellamy of Medicine Hal BlRteftdy^at if the Federation desired the support of the farmers In the political field as had been hinted, that lahor ought to be ready to meet the farmei-s and settle their differences amlcablj\ Delegate Wheatley of Bankhead was very strongly against the resolution, speaking three or four times in his effort to prevent the resolution from going tlirough. He thought the wage earners and farmers had many things In common. The door should be left open to the farmers and a strong effort made to get them Into the orgai-izaflon- DelegaJc 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. IJe thought also that the farmers and the wage earners w(ve the two most xpldited classes in.tbe'province. Delegate Farmllo was strongly kfainst striking out the U.F.A. for political reasons. Delegate Reid said tha tT.F.A- was an organization for the purpose of catting out the middleman as much Ml possible and had nothing to do iu the Industrial field. Another delegate advised the delegates prei�ot to go out and work tor � farmer and find out. The farmers, ha said, try to keep down the wages of men who' work in the harvest fields, and cases had been known where har-' Testers .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 organised the latter should be taken In. Delegate Tallon thourbt 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 niiner delegate who-works In a amall mine declared that the farmers In bis district competed with him during the winter months, cutting the labor, coat, 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 tjo farmers In the organiza-� tton: to led iFreshandFlt T. C.

Mr. Ross said the Hiidsoa's Bay Co. here had shown a fine spirit on Saturday last by refusing to open certain departments during the evening because their competitors had been unable to arrange their staffs-to keep open. The company had admitted In print that the act is a benefit to the employees. Mr. Roper ot Edmonton said the apprentice clause ought to be amended. Delegate Farmllo urged that the trades unlonlnts should not seek amendments at this time. He also spoke against (he principle of overtime. The discussion of the Electrical Workers Act, for which the electricians are asking amendments, was left over until the oompilttee could secure further information. IMaster and Servants Act An amendment to this act was put forward by the committee to place employers on the same footing as the em-1 ployees. The present act, it was claimed, was all 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 do 3. Theatraa Act , Amendments to this act are to be asked-in connection with the control of operatives, but the electrical work-era asked that consideration be left over and referred back to the committee. - Mechantca Lien Act An amendment was urged giving wage earners a prloV right in liens against buildings In course of erection, rather than being fifth on the list as la the case novr- Delegate Vlctaage wanted all law abolished that one had to secure a lawyer to use.

ER Amsterdam, Jan, '.-German newspapers containing comment on Premier Lloyd George's war aims speecli of Saturday reached, Amsterdam today. The Vosslsche Zeltung of Berlin, says: "This; the first, tangible British peace otter, is a; fresh indication of onr strength and n proof ot England's weakness. Peace conditions at the expense ot 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 Gorman armies are | fighting in the west at least as much ' for them as for Germany." . "The Yolks Zeltung: "Lloyd George's declarations show a tone in regai'd to us which Is indeed changed, but the old Imperialistic.aims are wholly maintained. The British premier belies his first declaration that he does not desire the destruction of Germany by his subsequent statement Umt he wishes to detach Al8ace-Lorr|Llne and. give to Poland portions ot Prussian territory in the oast. Despite assurances to the contrary, he also wishes to rob Austria-Hungary and Turkey." The Lokal Anzeiger: "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 this will be spoken by our armies'in the west and by our U-b'oats." I^on, as a sentiment ot having accomplished a duty,, painful though It maybe, yet assigned to us by the leaders of the nation, should be an encouragement to go ahead. We consider in tact, that the conscript has even more merit than, his brother in arms, the volunteer. Under the volunteer system. In a great number ot cases, tho departure of the cltleen tor the front is subject to all sorts ot considerations which have nothing to do jvlth patriotism or devotion to the great cause. Taste tor adventure, family jars and other reasons have determined many volunteers to take part in the jproBent war. This will not, however, prevent either the one or tho other signalizing by brave acts, as much devotion to 'the country as any other soldier."
