Lethbridge Daily Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 3, 1911, Lethbridge, Alberta Monday, July Iftlt PROSPECTS OF SETTU- NENT NOT CHEERFUL (Continued from Front tmaller Causes of Vexation whleh should not have been allowed lo and which had they been reniov i ed would have rendered a settlemen of the wage question a much oaslci matter. I am not going to enlarge upon that, however. With regard to the wages there are of course, two points of view, 'but as far as 1 have able to ,cast my eyes over the Held of observation, I have discovered I Iwo phoneniena. One Is lhal in a certain class of work an exceptionally high rale of wages is paid, that Is In contract prices, and at the' other ex- i treme Is a low and extremely low day wajje for the character of the work done. Now, when you consider tho fact that in certain classes of work the wages rise to an exceptionally high figure, a figure which I don't know lo be equalled or anything like equalled in any Industry in Canada, you will find this Infringes upon one of those for pillars. Here you liav a difference of opinion. On Ihe OIK Hide there Is a demand for an Inereas In the rates paid tnd cm the other side a demand for a reduction. Now want to "say here that there appears to be a prlnclpl that at times both parlies seem to the greatest affection, a kind ol "what-we-liave-we-inust-iiold' irinciple. That is a very fine pious sentiment in things Imperial, but il lues not lend itself lo the work ol a conciliation.board. That one principle would effectively stop attempts approach from either side, whether he wage be .regarded as high or low- lid to me that .does not seem the ttitude of reasonable men. As 1 lot at the results in the averages resented to iis and in the extracts rom payrolls in certain Instances, if ppears to me. that while these con- tract might he improved in view of the other changes we. are making in THE LKTTTBRinr.K DAILY HERALD 1 govern is far a tion and.equity 'Possible an eftualixa- In the-distribution of -the payroll of'the same camp, i found lhe greatest divergence in the i -amount of money a man could make j-ln the same mine, so that of two men i in the same local union and equally j efficient In their work one Is con- 1 tiemned to work for a wage that i not a fair living wage and the other i has the privilege given to him of earning a figure that is' extraordinary i and what seems to me to be an ab- normally high wage.

That is i the only principle to govern there. i Now I Have put before you a proposi- proposition in which I tried to apply these two principles, tha principles.of giving.on the one side an equitable distribution of'the wage's on the payroll to the men In the same camp and the principle of giving every day wage man a living wage as would enable him to live in comfort and Bring up Jiis family in a decent and respectable manner. Considering tr Iurs, remain the payrolls, they do not call for any .immediate change- either by advance or by reduction., I have, therefore, suggested as a'third point in the proposal: that these con- part 'from those in pil- tinchanged throughout the yvholc Held. -In, clauses four and live I nrentioo .tyvo exceptions.
