Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 23, 1913, Lethbridge, Alberta Page 5 the claim thai the application living been Inacle in proper form had no. choice but to grant the request. TI12 act distinctly states that he shall nanr.-- a board. This he refused to do in the fuoe of the statements oE the men that the.}' would go oil strike ii a board were' not granted. To escape a row in parliament he had finally submitted to pressure and named a board applying only to the eastern division of Ottawa. Since the report ,,. . p ... , of the board was made public six l-  A- * j I weeks have elapsed and yet the men Ottawa, .Jan.. 22.-The sdort Wed- have not been taken back. It was nesday : sittin'g; pf the commons was difficult, Mr, Carvell said, to recon-niark.od by a discussion of several cile the conduct of the minister with matters of interest. After routine, bis attitude of a year ago wh'en he Mi:. J.'AV'M. Aikens', of Brandon, in- was so anxious to compel the Grand Minister of Labor Strongly Criticised for his Very Unfair At-t . titude Trunk to take back its strikers. Minister's Defence Hon. T. W. Crothers, in reply, said traduced his bilKto amend the Dominion Lands Act. An incidoft >was afforded by Hon. Frank Oliver,-'who denied the state- that this notice of notion had been ment' made in reference to himself by on the order paper for several weeks Sir Rodmond Robliu. in the Manitoba and he bad some to the house pre-legislaturo bearing on the Macdonald pared to discuss it. Today, how-ppo8l- the bringing in "money and whis-' key," .political crooks, etc., in the Macdonald election. "I-did take some part'in- the Mac- tion should have given notice that the motion was to be discussed.

As tc� ' the rLrence that � should be ascertained with the least we brought iii whiskey and money, .I wish;to say that Sir Rodmond Robliu, 'Premier o. Manitoba, a>nd recently knighted by. His Majesty, speaking from his place in the legislature spoke what was untrue, knowing it to bo iuvtruc." Mr. Olivet: also made denials of the charges made by Premier Roblin with regard to the.swamp lands of the Freight Handlers' Grievance possible delay. The governments he said, had nothing to conceal in regard to the matter ajul the papers would bo produced. He regretted that some of the employees who had gone on strike arc still - without - theit positions and expressed the hope that this, condition would not continue. Changed Views Hon. Geo. P. Graham said that the attitude of the minister revealed a remarkable change in the last few months. During the South Renfrew Hon. Rodolpue* Lemieux, in moving!� bye-election, he as former minister of for all correspondence between tho j railways, had been accused' of, not be-departmcnt of labor and the corres-j ing true to the Grand Trunk em-pondence "pealing on the application i ployees because he had failed to ser of the Brptherhoou of Railwav Km-;cure their reinstatement. ' ,He could plovers for a board of conciliation, not see, therefore, how the' present' c.\p'rossed .surprise that tho minister minister could expect to escape had nofl named a board under the dis-; blame. The minister was in a pe-putes and investigation act. While, ciiliar position because this brother-nut desiring to discuss the-question . hood was concerned with'thc C.P.R. until' the papers had bo:n brought and not a government , owned vail-doun, he would ask the minister to ; road. -  . , .,>, make an Explanation of tho matter The Western.

The western men �had gone on strike but had expressed their willingness to go back to work as soon as a board was granted, lie understood that a board had berin promised for the west if the eastern inquiry did not settle the matter. Mr. Crothers interrupted to say that a board would be named for the western men, whether or mot the eastern men got what they desirocl. - In conclusion, Mr. Buchanan pointed to the -fact that there are manv classes of labor in western mines but that inquiries by boards of conciliation had resulted in much good. Mr, Knowles, Moose Jaw, said that incidents like this would make working men believe that the tribunal not Impartial aud to have that impression created would) be fatal. -.�111. M.

A Partizan Squeak Richard Blain, Peel, remarked on the fact that though the opposition resolution was for the production of the papers in connection with, the case, yet fchey were proceeding at once to discuss the case. They were anxious to get something upon which to condemn', the minister rather than to assist the C.P.R. employees. lion. Mr. Lcinieux referred tg a resolution passed at the recent labor congress in Guelph, Ont., colling for tho repeal of the act,- and' said that one roason adduced for the action was tlje administration of the ast bv the-department, of labor. ' . Hon. Mr. Crothers : "The labor congress was held long before, the refusal of a bofid and consequently the refusal had nothing to do with it. The motion, as u matter of fact, was basud on the Montreal street railway, disputo and that was brought before the department before we came into power.!'� Mr. Lemieux continued that the objection of the labor men was as to the delays and technical objections j raised m 'the department-.  - - <- More Roblin Dreams Before the next order was taken up, Thomas McNutt,. Salt Coats, rose on a question of personal privilege as to statements which bud been made by Sir Rodmond Roblm, in regard to himself. The speaker pointed out chat this was,not the proper place for questions of privilege unless he had ccm-sent< oi the house. Hon. L. "P.

Mu, Pelletier : "1 object.'^��(� Mr. Speaker: "I.f this* is-objected, to I must rule it out of order unless there is unanimous consent;'."- � As Mr. Pelletier continued his. objection the matter was dropped.  Dr. Clark asked the speaker for hjs own private ...��information:, .whether a. member in making, a personal explanation wouldi have to have the consent of every member of' the house or the majority. The speaker .replied^ that the.' indulgence. of the- housa practically meant the consent of the house, which meant every, member". A question of privilege might.: te ta'veu up before the orders of the day - or: at- any-other time when it did not interrupt, proceedings. But the ques-; tron should-be. an important one to i'nternupt the ordinary proceedings.
