M.TvA. in a corner by asking him whether, when he went to Btlraonton. he Tfras going to be content with the "sops" tho government might Utrow his way tor the labor men. or whether ha would stand out against the legislators ot the old Hue parties ill everything, putting forward always those opinions' dictated by the labo;;^ parties. This tendency to be jealous of members ot their or-ganlKatiohs who have attained positions Jin legislatures and governments is most markenl in Canada and Is one of the causes of the. weakness which develops In all labor parties. Until the working class overcomes this tendency', ther'fc cannot be that advancement in the political field which the numerical strength of the workers should make possible. �JIuch of the legislation asked tor ; by the convention by way of prepar-' ing for the demobllzation of tbe afmy now fighting tor Canada overseas is worthy Uie serious consideration ot the gdvehimenL Vocational training wilt have to be carried out in on increasing measure to meet the situation. The formation of a commission to in-vrttlgate industriaV trade relations so OS to prepare for a campaign ot development which will assimilate- our returned soldiers and give them eni-' ploymetit after the war is also worthy. Measures looking to compulsory industrial and old age insurance as asked-tor ahould be gjyen every consideration also. Shorter working hotirB ton working men, .with an eight hotxr' day as the basis tor all workers is generally accepted now as a necessity If the efficiency of tlie people'Of a nation is lo be maintained. The Herald Is not prepared to say how far this principle pushed at present, > with a war on which demands speeding up In every field of endeavor, by^t wa quite realize*that after the war,there will, be a general demand In the direction ot .a�etandardlzBtion of working hours in..ordBr that employment may be fouijd torithe thousands.who wiU iJe ;.ft'af tlie prpvin.ce.
