In doing have drafted what might, possibly be termed In Eull H pvoposcil ttfirccinuiH, anil we have al- so stated wlwl arc the points we desire atU'iillun to. We have IJHBOI! our clfihn ai '.bis timo on several fin-lb that arc vtry liniwrtant to us, and tlieee we desire to onunioralo (join's 'inln any very lengthy argument uml- r. In the first place wo wish to draw attention to the. terms of the agree: nient, and in that particular respect we ourselves hnvc somewhat receded from our former position. Our posi- tion from the of tho negotiations' try and alter the ilate bl the expiration, but nl this time H IB not our intention lo allow timi particular matter to of con- tention. We would suggest that .the term of the afireeineiit be as'U baa been In the past-, Tor-'not more than two In support or LhjU'parilc- .wlar portion of our BtateniBiit; 1 may say that wages, BO far as money Is concerned, are. .only relative, and while, If we extend our agreement ov- er a greater period than thai, we might receive-the same amount' ot money, at the same ilme tliat would ;not 'represent, nor does It represent, our actual wages; and so, of necessity, we must take precau- tions against changes that may effect us. The particular ehunge that I. re- fer to may be change's In cost of liv- ing, anil in the last analysis what a. man can purchase with the jnoiiey he .elves represents his actual wages, and IE that varies, Uhen his actual wages vary: It we are to judge the future intel- ligently from .what' has happened- in the we judge things by Inc laws which we realize are in op- eration, we can only, say that all ap- pearances suggest that the cost of liv- ing will increase in the future In- stead of decreasing; and so, to tie ourselves down to 'a longer period than two'years, 1 have tie ourselves down to wages 'Judged from that particular. point of .view, might possibly end In disaster to our- selves. 1 may say that possibly the same arguments would apply in the oilier way, and thai., to uur minds, 'is _ sufficient argument why we should not wish .to extend tfie period-of ag- reement in excees of'the time named! In connection with the next matter that WE draw attention to, I may stale thnt It is a matter that has caus- ed considerable! difference between the two organizations that are'now re- presented before you. 'Afihe joint meeting in Calgary we went over this matter, and it was pointed out on' that practically 50 per cent, of our'mem- want you to be clear on this point understand that it does not mean 50 per cent. of. the employ- ees of the 'practical- ly fit) per cent, of our membership under a closed ah'op ag- reement, as the term is understood by both parties. In this instance we con- sider that if we relinquish that.par7 Llcailar arrangement, that he entitled to some consideration' In return. We express a however, to renew the deal with thai particular; matter, which have been in- existence -prior lo the 31st of March pr this year, and to continue this during the life of the agreement that may at. If such were done, J cannot see. .that either party, would be .letting any- thing go which it bad enjoyed, and for thai reason we consider that .It would be an' equitable' I have not yet seen during the pro- ceedings, or (luring the' meetings In joint conference In Calgary, ;where it WMS set out or working under arrangement with the Crow's Nest PHBH Coal Cum: pany had worked any hardship .upon tbat company: ii. has not even been claimed that it would upon anyvof.the companies, provided arrange1 mcnl was entered into; but the state- ment hat; been made that-on-a [ion of principle It could-, not .tie" ig- reerf to, ami il is the'niiGstiori of prin- ciple thai stands in the way of any- thing of that kind being effected.-. have suggested from time time thnt another clause might bekgub- atitutod. a clause that would come Into effect Kenerally and which would not be a closed-shop checkoff clause! In case thai were agreed to, then we nave expressed our willingness from timo t0 LluiG with .the-'pre- amble, staling that we are not partic- ularly concerned with what sort of a .preamble might be attached to the I agreenieul. The as itit- Jed. is also given In the bill of partic- ulars.

Jmenv in a. great many.iu- HlanceB, of Hie that the 'earniiigs were based an the methods of working, or that the prices paid were based on such meth- ods, we consider, tliat we are entit.led to some coneldieratlon when cliHiiges of nature are made. One of the changes refer to is Uio uiieaLion oE It' la a well known fact. that in" many' of .the cnmps (lie were fjrit fixed the miners were blaotinc the coal from the solid and tlie change from MmL condition to that coal, ami in many caseB lo -that of eliminating the blast: Ing of coal entirely, .hiis considerable e'ffect on the capacity ,ot tlie men. at this" we wiere to ask for sufficient -In the way of an io cover only, pai-Ucular condi- an advance aufficlenL .to plnce us Mh the .'poiUion ae we wore ''ould 'be public rof tliia k, unreasons lile we expect lo t, HB'wcH'ai the 1" some yeara l -Vvhlcl country m.eiit-i These fire" carry to aome eit aame time we naturally object to the placing ot tlie whole burden on our shoulders. .Thatiie one or the rea- sons we are aaklng for an incre on contract to .the reasons One' of haVe -tried to Ljh'i'connecUpn with the general''provlsijons the agree- ment, la the method-.of settling putea.

For tbat-reason, we aug- t some changes in. that'particular respect. _ Again, we have' certain .objections to enter in connection'with .the meth- od' by and we suggest, other methods along thi lines to have equally salisiactory re- sults on both sides, and with, possibly a little more (he meih- qri of handling them. Another matter covered by' us is In connection.with men time ow- ing to lack oT matyrlalH." I wbvild Uko ib draw your attention'to the fact, Mr. Chairman, .that we 'have a clause in the agreement whereby employees that, lose time are subject to the pen- alty'of discharge for lOBing time on their own acco.uut, and a IHW should operate against the employees, believe it is oiijy'filr that a similar condition should be-imiMBed on the We are of opinion that if a man los- es time .through materials he should to some .extent .be compen- sated for the .lout, the other hand, that the companies work-, ing under Mint penalty, Would attempt as fur HH possible Lo remedy the exist- ing state of results in the loss of time to the' men. We be- lluve, further, that "the adoption such a clause in the agreement would even eliminate the 'discrhn- natlon (.hat has been complained of from timo (o time. 'Another matter which we have 'dp, anil mads especial reference to, Is the question of working seven days in the week, particularly on Sundtya, -We do not consider that, nny man should be call- ed to put in tho whole or his lime nl his work.

You o bud substantial evidence In con nectlon with that matter, and 1 believe the board realizes thai eome change in tbaii direction should be made. We have suggested what we consider to an equitable dockage clause to both the ineii and the company. A point Vve have consid- erable cuinplalnt about, Hnd which we have tried to cover Iti the general pro- visions suggested, is the" Question or the men being culled upon to cast their coal excessive distances. That was ihown in Kernle, and might have been demonstrated possible to greater extent in .Michel, had we de- sired to go further into that partlcu lar line of evidence. nave sug- gested what we consider would be a means of eliminating that particular class of thing as for as possible, with out Imposing any great burden UJHJII the Company.

So far as 1 personally am concern- ed, Mr. Clirtlmiiin, I think 1 have prac- tically covered the particular points to which I desire to draw your atten- tion, though 1 would like the tiitalty lo be afforded-to any of the other members of our committee who desire to express themselves. to proposition submitted. There may Dossibly be some matters that I have overlooked, and which they thum selves may desire to speak upon.
