Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 22, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta / Mnc so Expects Conscription of Labor in Canada Shortly "I -woulcin't lie surprised in tho least. tt on order woro issued next week tor tho conscription o,t labor in Caiiada," said Alex. Uoss, Jt.L.A., o� Calgary, 1� the Herald this moriiiiiff. Mr. Ross M in Hio city^ou a ?liorl visit. In] view of the lact tlTnt.Mr. Uosa is one 6t the lending labor men ot the west, his opinion is, s!gnificnht. Mr. Ross is incliued to think that oousoriptlon of h^bor at first will be part cularl.v filmed at seriirin?r a snf-fiiient supply of farm labor. He says th'^.t conscription of labor is under w.-'.y in United States irt order to supply tho important industries such fis farming, miniuE and munitions nin'.inR, and it nppear.s as if ihn same must corue here. In this connection he sees in the near future a much Krc.Ttcr effort towards state control of i}ot only labor but industries, and dei'lares that the whole world i^ moving towards ownership by the people of tlio social structure. �Somethinp must be done in connection with tho returned soldiers," he conticaod. "In Calgary we have a number ot returned men walking the stroBtF. unable to get work. Discharged men .ire joining ,t!to forces again, being unable to pet work and being unable also to live on their pensions. It Is up to the people tiirougli the government to rectify this state of affairs, and control of industries by the goveninienr is tlie feasible manner of bringla^aboat a solution. It is a socialistic niovenic'Jt but tho world is fravelllnsr.tast in that direction." The Comino Seition > Dlscussiug the coming .seMlon ot Iho provinctnl legislature in which Mr. Ross will sit for tho first time next month, he says that among the important items will be the creation of a highways board., the compensation act and the deterniJiing of the proper method ot raising the Patriotic Fund subscription ot the province. In this i latter connoction there is a differonce ! of opinion among the members ot tho i legislature. Soma think tho government should place the onus of raising the fund on tho mnnicipnliUes, while others tj[iink it should be by means of an inconie tax for that purpo-^e. Favors Preferential Ballot. The Calgary member anticipates some fun in committee when the proposed Letlibridge charter amendment doing away with tho preferential form ot ballot for civic eiectious comes up. Mr. Ross is strong for proportional representation, and while the preferential ballot is widely divergent from that form, the underlying principle is ; much the same in botli" cases. Mr. ' Kosi may be expected to oppose the return to the straight ballot in the Lcthbridgo charter. Factory Act Dijcussing tho Factory Act, Mr. Ro.^5 is ,of the opinion that important changes will be made. The main plea presented to the special commission in Calgary was for an open Saturday night in the retail stores. He expects tho same argument to be made here. niR LETHBRinfiE DAILY HEnALD TUESDAY, JANUARY 22,1918 ly m Til AND HALFTOtERKS For After-Hour Work-Charge Labor Men Not Supportine Act InforinaUon comes from CalgarR th�t tho Factory Act Inspectors have made a ruling to the effect that if retail mercbants will pay time and a half for overtime to their clerks for 'Vforkinc on Saturday evenUtga, and the darks are satisfied w^lth this plan, the government will not take tha cases Into court. All depends, l^pwever, on the wiUla�neiB of the clerks to enter Into such a plan. The local retailors are endeaToring to get ln^^ tonch with Chief Inspector McUeod at Calgary to learn whether this is true. If so the majority ot the l,ethljrid8e merchants would toUow the plan. Meanwhile they, are getting toeether all possible facts regarding Saturday nl^t closing to lay before the commission on the factory, act which meets on Wedneaday mom- Labor Men Supporting It "If the factory act waa put tHrough to help the labor men as they say, then the labor men ot Lethbtldge are not supporting the merchants who are llrtng strictly to the letter of the law," aald a local retailer to the Herald this Jnprning. "I have iiad my store closed at sli o'clock on the last two Saturday nights and I know that quite a number ot my customers among the labor p^pla have gone to other stores which kept open-to get goods 'on Saturday �rening*. It shows, to my mind, that the labor men think the principle..of the factory act is all right hut they are act willing to support it by their indl-tidnal practice." This merchant states (bat ho will keep hia store open on B�turday evening next. AVIATION CONGRESS IN RUSSIA Loudon, Jan. 22.-A Russian government wireless report gives an urgent proclamation sent to all aviation detachments and groups on the northern, western, southern and Rumanian fronts, concerning an aviation congress to be held in Pet-rograd on February 10, to which delegates must be elected, by general, direct and secret ballots. Very eiact directions are given regarding the qualifications and election ot delegates.  *  The-Hauge, Jan. 22.-Some idea of What follows in the train of under-faeding, which at present prevails ererywhere in Belgium, may be gatli-red from the following statiatics from an official aonrce; since 1914 general mortality in Belgium has risen by 50 par cent, while berths have fallen off about 42 per cent.; in Ghent and Northern Prance deaths from tub-rculosla have multiplied sUtold. Mounted Police Keeping Close Tab on.Eaemy Aliens Coming Into Country .The mounted police are watching very closely for Infractions of the vaf=^ ions war acts of the Dominion by alien enemies. On Saturday Detective Lobb Jjicked up a Hungarian named SchwJtzer, who had Just arrived from the east, ile had In bis possession a revolver and other firearms together with ammunition. He was fined $50 and costs by Inspector Chaney tor carrying firearms and $10 and costs for failing to register on bit arrival here as an alien enemy. On Monday the same-officer arrested'^. Wronski. an Auatro-Oerman w6o had just arrived from the States. He could not give a good account as to bow he crossed the line, so he had been remanded for eight daya pending lnN�BtIgation by the police. GAS RANGE EXPLODED ONEFATALLYIN'n St. Catharines Ont., Jan. 22.-A ser-ioua explosion of gas took place Iiere yesterday morning at the foot of St. Paul street which caused the wreckage ot the two lower floors of an apartment bouse and injurr to Misa Annie Blackwood, from which it is feared she will not recover. Miss Blackwood rose early to prepare breakfast and was about to light the gas In the kitchen stove when the explosion occurred, blowing the wall of the building out. symptom of a cold .  f appears. Neglected colds lay the foundatloo ef w^k coBStl-tutions, and many cases of consumptlan caa be traced to ueglected colds la childhood. A cold should recelye prompt treatment, b�t don't mak* the mfstake of dosing your child with common cough ib)x> turcs, syrups, lozenges, etc. The dhifii whiiih some of tbesa I, contain have a most.injurlous effect upon the stomach, aod if I these are qsed. in trying to cure tha cold yoa may ruia tha digestion. The Peps treatment Is the safest an4 surest for all,colds. coughs, throat and bronchial troubles.

' For chills, sore throat, laryngitis, asthnu. bron'-l'^ls and weak chest, Pepa are emualiy good. All dcalerk '.i, bozt Local Fair Dates May B�� Fixed in Month of "July London. Jan. 22.-(Correspondence) -Demands for the calling of an Im-medJato or early conference of representatives of labor from alt countries to discuss peace will be anftng ^tho most important of tlic resolutions to be submitted to the conterenco of the British Labor Party to be Ueld at Nottingham tomorrow and on tho two days following. Three resolutions requesting such action have been prepared' for submission to the conference by the independent Ijabor Party, the Socialist party and tho Glasgow trades council. Various phases of the peace question apparently will be dominant in the discussions. Declaration that the time has arrived tor peace negotiations is made in tour resolutions to be submitted by the labor organizations of Bristol, Norwich, t�lcester and, York. A demand that labor be permitted representation in the eventual peace congress of tho belligerent powers, or that an ihternational labor confereace be held simultaneously with the peace congress, is set forth by labor bodies of Great Yarmouth and Bristol. Withdrawal of all labor members from minislerlEtl offices under the present government is demanded in eight resolutions prepared by the British Socialist party or by labor bodies, on the ground that continuance ot labor members in the service of a government which "permits exploitation ot the people by the capitalists" Is contrary to labor interests and a vlolatfh^ of the party constitution. Denounces Food Tliievss One such resolution from Ea^t Ham bases Its demands on "the continual bare-faced robbery of the people by i the food pirates," and suggests that any laborer who ^refuses to resign should be expelied from the party. "Capitalist food thieves" are strongly denounced, and the government is urged to handle the food problem so as to el^nlnate profiteering and secure "equality ot sacrlBce." There is likely to be a long and bitter discussion on this issue. A year ago the conference reaffirmed by an overwhelming majority the retention of office by j labor ministers. - . Financial proposals have been submitted by more than a dozen societie:^. They include plans for a substantial levy on capital, a drastic Increase of the Income tax, a raising oi;^ the exemption limit to 180 or 200 pbvnd, and the compulsory application ot the, "sinking fund" principle to land and capital, making it the property of the nation. I A scheme for the reorganization of the Labor party, is to be submitted to the conference by the executive committee. It is aald to represent an advance in the political mobilization ot the labor forces. Three important new-comers among the resolutions are: ikn amendment of the law ot libel for the protection ot labor bodies against slanderous literature and speakers; a declaration' in favor of home rule in India; and a statement that the time iias cdme for the teaching of an international language to enable workers ot the world to understand one another without need of an interpreter.
