Yesterday there was laid on tho table of tho Iikho an ordrr In council appointing Mr. Armstrong of Vancouver, to look nfl/sr th'j open-tlon r.E mines m Western'Canada. As 1 under.slnnd It, ho is tirst to make inquiries and Investigations whi'h will dolny tho operation of tho mines. I had understood that tho government had fully decided to take over and operate the mines and that Mr. Aim-Htrong had been placed in charge of this work. I want to know whether theno investigations nnd inquiries are to bo made nnd whether the operation of tho mines is to be delayed. 1 would thlnlt that the government had sulllc-ient Information now to decide what Is the best policy to pursue. I am also advised that, (he gentleman who has been appointed is not n friend of organized labor, but that, j on the contrary, ho has been opposed ' to organized labor. If that be. Ihe case, I wpuldi suggest that it is a bad appointment, to mnke In dealing with a labor problem in Western Canada. I would also ask the minister, In fairness to tho house and tho country, to mnko n completo statement in regard i the, chair ^ presiding. Tho opening to the negotiations and efforts to bring """'' about a settlement of the strike.

Crothers .(minister, .of labor): The statement of my hon. friend about the. director of coal operations in district No. 18 being opposed to organised labor is the first intimation of that sort tlint I have had concerning Mr. Armstrong. Mr. Armstrong reached Calgary yesterday, and, hi.s instructions aro to have operations resumed at once.

The. baseball team play ' e.d in Now Dayton, and as a result Hie spectators were denied Hie privilege of witnessing a game. The auction sale was held after tho sports and the day's proceedings closed with a grand ball in tho assembly hall. The voting contest on the most popular young lady in town closed at 11 o'clock during the dance. Just, before the close the voter, were piled high as a result of Billy Mclntyre rcliev- closure of the negotiations which he desires. Mr. Buchanan:' I would like to ask the minister if in ordering the men to return to work, they are to have their demands complied with by the commissioner representing the government. Are they to be paid what they have been asking for? Mr. Crothers: I expect that the director will settle that matter. 1 do not know the terms upon which they ing himself of some of his surplus are returning to work, but I am satisfied they will return to work right away. Mr. Oliver: I notice in the order in council that was laid on the table yesterday that authority was conferred on the gentleman appointed to control -nines In Southern Alberta and Southeast Kootenay. I wish to know just �what Is the condition In regard to the1 mines in Northern Alberta. Mr. Crothers: I have not the order In council before me, but my recollection is that it takes in the southeasterly of British Columbia and the southwesterly part of Alberta, covering what is generally known in that part of tho country as district No. IS. I am not qui to certain how far north that extends.' Mr. Oliver: I would respectfully ask tho minister to inform tho house at tho earliest convenient duio how far this order does extend. It is probably tho most remarkable order that has yet hoen issued in Cnnndn, and there is a very great difference created between thoso mlnco that aro under it and thoso that aro not. It is of great importance that wo should know which mines aro under tho order nnd which, if any, aro not. In view of tho importance of this order and tho action that necessarily follows it, it is essential that this house and the country should know, not by a return laid on tho table of papers which do not carry their own explanation, but on the -responsibility of tho minister of labor, what the negotiations between the parties wcro, and why and how those negotiations failed to come to a satisfactory conclusion. This country is Holng into r Irome.ndouK experiment. and wo have a right to begin nt the beginning and know why. cash, voting in favor of the winning lady. Miss Lyle Shelton. Largely as a result of Billy's activity and farmers from north of town who were assisting the Felger girl, the gratifying sum of $1,.-100 was made from the contest. Special mention should be made of the assistance in making the day a grand financial success, rendered by those of German descent from north of town.
