The trouble has always been in the past that the labor men have never been uuited among themselves.* They have split into many factions, varying from those who are ready to educate the people to their r views and obtain their ends by peaceable means to (hose who are ready to take' the most radical steps to bring about "ihe social ownership of thexj social structure.'' as one delegate stated it. The result has been that the working classes. they term* themselves, have been inclined to quarrel anions themselves, presenting no basic platform and no united iV'oitf. Evidence of this tendency to split and to allow iealousv of one another's poll- not wars by one part, of Russia against another, but attempts to spread class warfare In those* parts where the pro: letariat has not yet obtained the upper baud. Thus, the Bolahevtkl .are not jarring against the Ukraine but against the llourgeoise Ukraine Ratla; not with the Cossuck country, but with the military government of the Cossack. The Daily News correspondent says .that, (ho HUti-Bolshevikl newspapers daily record Bolsheviki defeats, but declares it is curious that after each defeat the Bolsheviki advanced instead of retired. The map, he says, shows that each reported defeat take's the Bolsheviki further into the enemy oouutry.

A FEW COM>ARlSONS FROM MOOSE JAW A comparison made by .the .Muose Jaw News ot* a few of the great, but plain, names in British history, with those of some in Canada, who have been knighted during recent- years, makes the latter look ridi^aloup. He-fleet on the following: John Hampden. . Oliver Cromwell, The Younger Pitt. . mpharfl Cobden, . John Bright, William Bwart Gladstone, ' Arthur James Balfour, Herbert'Henry Asquith. ; Lloyd George, - - - -4> Then reflect on these: Sir Donald Mann, Sir Kodmond Roblin. Sir Joseph Flavelle, Bart - ' Lord Athelstone.- Of course there are a few good Rights in Canada, though they would have been honored by the; Canadian people: even if they hadn't been knight-ed. ' W. J. Gage, the Toronto philanthropist knighted the. other day is one, and Sir Frederick Hauitain, of the News' own province. is another. On the whole however our knights are a nrediocre lot, and most of them Have been created by reason of pull and wealth. Recognition- of mea of the Gage and Hauitain stamp might be excused but this business ot toadying to wealth and 'social upstarts is 'nauseating..- THf ALBERTA FEDERATION OF LABOR CONVENTION "So~ more "important labor conven- ifou has ever been held in Ijethbridge $han that of the Alberta Federation of babnr which held its annual conven-%ion here this week. A great many very important matters were discuss-d, some excellent ideas for legislation for workers advanced, as well as some rather radical ideas which are not likely to find fulfilment for some time. However the delegates as a Whole were very fair in their demands, which wjll, we are sure, find favor-''ftble consideration from the legislators �f the province and the Dominion. Perhaps the most important action taken,- from the standpoint or general Interest, was the decision to set the wheels moving for the formation'of a labor or working class party in the province and in the Dominion. The Herald has no quarrel with this action of thc convention, and believes ! a general demand in the direc-j lion of a -standardization of workin hours in order that employment raav wards here at full speed she submerged suddenly. The smoking muzzles of f her wee guns disappeared beneath the ' water only an instant after their last Russian freedom and Russian power of resistance to the German enemy." ;M.
