C.; June offi- cers Of the Western Operator's as sociation and the United Mine Work- ers of America, met here at noon to- day and signed an agreement which will send them back to work at Can- more, Lethbridge, Royal, Leitch, Hill- crest, Bellevue, Lille, Coloman and Hosmer mines immediately. The agreement completed today is the same agreement which was negotiated at Macleod hi March and carried with it the open shop, both parties agreeing that there shall be no dis- crimination either by the company or the !iK-n against union or non-union person came forward.

An the same thing happened in c''.mection with the petition against Mr. Magrath in connection with the elation in Medicine Hat. And while Mr. Justice Stuart dealing in this Avise with tie election petitions in Southern Alberta, Mr.Jus- lict- Beck was dealing in the sasno fashion in respect to the p.-ti- lion's against Mr. Oliver in 'Melntyre in Strathcona ind Dr. Clark in Red Deer. And these incidents lead one Ji-'ve that this is the ac very successful saw-off. fco- of a Biggest Shaft In All Canada men. After three months of idleness and the loss to tiie workmen of at least half a million dollars of wages with its attending loss to the operators and public, the miners resume work at the same terms which were offered by the operators and accepted by the men in 'March last but rejected by Frank Sherman who forced the strike at a time when all interested expected peac-i'. Tlit: atmosphere has, however, been cleared and it is expected that industrial peace will prevail in coal mining centres of eastern British Co- lumbia and Western Alberta for the next two years. The agreement" signed by the op- erators and the union is practically the same as the Macleod agreement. Tin- chief uvuble was about the pre- amble, ex-president Sherman propos- ing a preamble guaranteeing an ab- solutely closed shop. The preamble as accepted reads: "Whereas the benefits to be derived form an industrial contract depend altogether upon the fidelity with which it is carried into effect. And whereas it is our earnest and sincere desire that any agreement made and executed by and between the representatives of the miners in District No. 13 and the' representativ- es of the Western Coal Operators' As- sociation be observed :iad carried out in its entirely and that all controvers- ies arising under this agicement shall be agreeably and definitely settled. It is therefore mutually understood and agreed that the following condi- tions and rates shall govern the par- ties hereto for a period ending March 31st, 1911, and that the'Parties here- to will meet in conference thirty (30) days prior to the expiration of tin's agreement" to discuss a renewal there- of. Management of Mine The right to hire and discharge, the management of the mine, and the direction of the working forces, are vested exclusively. in the company and the United Mine Workers shall not abridge this right. The agreement makes the usual ar- rangement for the settlement- of any dis-putvc. It provides further for a joint committee of three (Operators i and three majority of the j whcle committee being required to set- tle any matter referred to it. This committee is to meet every three j months and if it can-not agree is to appoint an independent chairman, j Work must be continued pending in-1 vestigial-ions, 'but. the 'right of thjj miners to suspend work if the op- erator does not accept the committee's finding is recognized. The companies give the -United i Mine Workers of America full reeo-_r-1 nitiou and concede the check-off sys i tern and grant the right to miners to I employ check-weighers. The miners do not prohibit the em- j ployriu-nt of Chinese provided they j aiv paid the scale waces. X-.'w July of the most drastic upheavals in Nvw York's police history came today when Mayor Mc- Clellan summarily removed Commissioner Theodore A. Bingharn for insubordination, after the latter's refusal to comply with certain orders is- sued by the mayor yesterday. With General Bingham'.s re- tirement today went several of his closest advisers and the leading supporters of his re- gime. As head of the new re- gime., the Mayor appointed Wm. F. Baker to be deputy commissioner.
