A perusal of the audi- tors' report of the accounts of the Board for 1919 shows that the acci- dent fund provided for the administration of Mine Rescue Work and S648.32 for the administration of the Electrical Protection Act.

Steel preferred 109.- report of the Provincial Coal Com- mission had been referred to all locals of the United Mine Workers in' the province in order to secure an expres- aion of opinion as to the merits of tho report, but, owing to the disturbed condition of this organization, the re- plies were not as numerous an they should have been. Suggest Manitoba Act Here Tho Federation officers brought be- for the attention of tho convention the fact that during the year conslder- ible difficulty had. been experienced iiy organizations to negotiate WOridnr agreements. Attempts had been made to secure arbitration or boards through tho federal and subordinate to democratic ideas and institutions and to the general welfare of the people. With the adop- tion of.some such legislation it could be demonstrated that the increased price of commodities is not caused by increasing wages, because iu no way has wages kept pace with the in- creased cost of living. With the aid of the foregoing and' by adequate con- trol of capitalization and depreciation charges, along with the idea that has been gaining ground" and growing in force and acceptance that industry 'ig a ooclftl institution, tha of the Federation, outlining aa it does organised- labor's-belief and which in part states: society must achieve the social ownership and control of those means of production, transportation and distribution which aro necessary for the well-being of society as a whole, should be materially assisted to fulfll'mont through the curtailment of unlimited profit, with its resultant effect on private investment and a more liberal state of government own- ership."

Unemployment .Problem After aucgeating' to the convention that the government be asked to enact legislation nuking tho Minimum Wages and Maximum Hours Commis- sion a permanent one, VIce-President A. Farmilo, of Bdmontorf, referred to the unemployment problem of the day. "This new unemployed said ho, "is not tiie broken and dispirited army of men who before the war were claased as the post-war unemployed army Is made up of men conxlousi of having rendered service to .the State. You will remember that immediately armistice was signed we heard the cry ,on every hand from tha employer, 'More production' tit break-neck speed. This propaganda has suddenly Hopped. What is the reason? Today ne read in headlines, out of work In Montreal, thousands out In Toronto, aerenty-flve thousand out of work In Detroit, tlious- ands of Idle forcing wages down.'Aru we not sufferini; from industrial hypoc- risy In a highly imrfoctud With one mouth they shout 'more 'the orgaulted are laying down on tho and with tho others they say 'thousands of Idle forciujc wages down.' Yes, world does need more production, 'it was right .when they It, it is right today. Inflation is coming out of In- dustry aud the unscrupulous employer mi opportunity to ranke thU an txcuso.for the reduction ot wages." Fight Shop Followine a sujgestiou tuat propos- als be made by tin Federation to the dominion, provincial and municipal governments that would make for permanent economic betterment, Mr. Farmilo sent out a warning iiolo that It would be well for the vnriouH local unions to be "Increasingly active, ever on the watch against tho open-shop movement which is part and parcel of this forced unemployment scheme Elmer E. Roper, of Edmonton, and Messrs. Alex. Ross and Fred.'White, of Calgary, reported to the convention as to the activities of tho Trades and Labor Congress sessions and the Con- ference of Social Service Council re- spectively. Messrs. W. Smitten and R. Mc- Creath, who represented labor on the Minimum Wages aud Maximum Hours Commlasion which last summer took evidence In the cities ot Alberta, re- ported that Uie had pre- sented its Itndlngs aud iwottunenda- tloiu to Uu Uuvernntmrt In December. it that the mutmium WUKO tor uny persoa in jturs uf ucu, or any teiuale, employed under provisions of Act be 113, except for appreatlcee, who shall nicelve not less than apliortlouniont of shall not Im mom than per cent, of the total number o( employoes. It was pointed out that the report hud been signed by all of Commission, but did nut exprean correctly tho opinions of tha labor who have presented tho following additional statement: the evidence submitted conclusively shows that a much larger minimum 1s required If tho bare necessities of sv self-suuporting woman In industry are to bo provided, and, further, that the welfare Industry in the province would uot be affected, hut, In view of the fact that thers is a recommenda- tion for tho creation of a Minimum WHKO Board similar to those In oper- ation lit other through which we hope these measures will be corrected, with a view of partial- relief from the present condi- tions we wore prepared to permit the recommendations to be submitted un- der our signatures rather than have the committee present two be- lieving that by such action the possi- bilities of immediate relief would be thereby greater.
