Pres. Watters Says Conscription Will He Opposed if Industries Not Mobilized Ottawa. July 15.-J. C. Walters, pre sident of tho Dominion trades and labor congress, in a speech at Hull, Que., tonight attacked Sir Robert Borden, the premier, who he declared had been guilty of a breach of faith in not consulting organized labor throughout Canada. Labor would oppose conscription even by a Dominion-wide strike if necessary, unless tho government showed its faith by taking over the industries of the country and devoting them lo the needs of the empire. the same plan. But accommodation cannot be secured in Magrath for such a crowd. If the Lothbridge people will give the Magrath fair society the use of the fair grounds here for this year fir'e of charge, Raymond will join with them aral bring both fairs here and stage a big stampede in connection. The next year Lethbridge would stage the fair itself in an effort lo clear up tho deficit of $:i,�00 against the iair board, and after that there is little doubt that an amalgamation of several fairs would result in a big annual district fair in Lethbridgo instead of a number of smaller fairs in the towns in the district. All the delegates from Magi-alb and Raymond are favorable to a plan for amalgamating the fairs and' think that if their proposal for this year is accepted, the amalgamation will lie the natural result. President Marnoch spoke in favor of the. schomo, while Secretary Mc.Nicol believes that if tho two fairs are transferred here this year, the provincial government j will give not only the Raymond and Magrath fair grants but also part of tho Lothbridge grant. Mr. Mc.Nicol is very much in favor or an amalgamation of fairs and thinks the present plan will do much to forward a scheme for which he worked bo hard threa or four years ago.
