Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 16, 1909, Lethbridge, Alberta JANUARY it, Think it Should be Spokaxio, Wash., Jan. in eastern Washington are urg- iof of the Legislature, now in in Olympia, to change the criminal lawa.oi the state by increas- 'ing the penalty of the crime of brib- ery or attempting to bribe a public officer in the exercise of an official duty. At present the crime of ac- ceptiif a bribe is in one statute made punishable by imprisonment ia the penitentiary for not more than seven years, and a fine not exceeding 000; and in another statute by impri- sonment in the -penitentiary not more than ten years and a fine not exceeding On the other hand the crime of bribing or attempting to bribe v public officer is punishable only by imprisonment in the county jail not more than a year, or a fine not exceeding Under these laws, it is pointed out, a judge or! other official who accepts a britw might be sent to the penitentiary for 10 years, while the man by whom the bribe was'paid could get off with a nominal fine and escape imprison- ment entirely. It is urged that the penalties' for bribe giving should be equal if not more severe than those lor bribe tsking.

It may be said that the critic, though a flat failure in doing things, is remark- .ably facile in telling how things might have been done. In fact abil- ity to do things is a grievous handi- cap to a critic, as, for example, the painters are indifferent critics, the most impressive critics are so incompetent as painters that they could not do a satisfactory job in whitewashing the back fence. It is only fair to admit that many critics have an ample fund of language, and that they can sometimes find fault with such literary nicety as to make Painters and Decorators, Retail Clerks. Musicians, Electrical Workers, Hotel and Bestaurant Employees. Does that look lik? business? orgHium ec- eomiiHshed something. How his gostiou that such u committee be ap- by the Lethbridge body was dealt with need not be mentioned in the meantime. Like all humau beings, the local organizer may have his faults, but surely no faults can be found with the results of organization work, -and it is that which talks. There an old story that it takes two to make t! quarrel, and in the meantime I may be pardoned from holding aSoof. Well, the local organizer is still the local despite what action a few delegates may take, and until his commission is abrogated by the American Federation of Labor, .he will continue to hold down that of- fice. If those delegates to the Council who are so anxious to turn down the local organizer were to devote them- selves to the work that the local 'La- bor Council set out for themselves to do, they would not only save "hot but at the same time they would save their candidates from being re- turned at the "bottom of the poll." Next week I would not be surpris- ed to learn that these kickers had moved a motion to the effect that the editor.'of this paper eliminate this column.

Let usgsee what the organizer lias done for tirades .unionism in this city, and then draw conclusions as to how far the ''hot debates" on this topic were merited at a recent meeting of Trades and Labor Council. t Some--time less-than a year ago and shortly after nis commission ar- rived, the-voluntary organizer of the American Federation of Labor (with 'the -accent on the word Apart from the above tht? local or- ganizer has attended innumerable meetings of unorganized crafts, and although unsuccessful so far owing to has no doubt of the ultimate accomplishment in the near future.

He is out at all hours of the night, and it must be remembered that the 'organization work is done after bus- iness hours.- As I have already stat- ed, the position is a voluntary one, and he receives no remuneration whatever from the American Federa- tion of Labor for his services. I may also add that he receives less from the local Trades and IJabor Council. The former a if least know, how to ap- preciate his work but the latter, if reports are-lrue, seems to find con- siderable -delight in handing-out air" and flknock out blows." At- the same it needs to be remembered that the' local organizer has added 28 (what about the 5-8 new members to the Trades and Labor Council. He has organiz- ed no local in the city but what they have, or are to, appoint delegates to that body. Did the local organizer fail-in his duty there!
