Michel, WOOL CROP SELLS WELL Better Price Than The Average Secured by Local Sheep Men Speaking to Spencer HcCaig. of- tbe Southern AJberta Sheep Co., .this morning, the Herald learned sheep sheaimg operations foi IU1 are nearlj concluded, and that the sheep ranchers are well satisfied with the result Nearlj forty thousand sheep 'lipiwd thin BDIIHE in the Lethbridge district The is very good this jear, in fact, bcttei than foi several jeara, on account of the cellent feed which the wet spring has caused On an average each fleece would weigh about seven pounds, so that the total clip of .the district would be close to 250.000 pounds The shearing was for the most pait done at the shearing camp at Chin Coulee, where over were clip but some -of tre large ranchers had'their's thorn The cost cost sheep for shearing this year was'between seven and eight cents, or about a cent a pound The price for wool this year Is'some what better than the average, the ranchers here receiving between 11V4 and 1414 cents per pound The aver age pnco, as stated b) Mr McCaig, would lie about 1-1 cents On this bas- is, the total value of the 1911 clip Is close to J40.000, or about-one dollar per head. Most of the wool this year was sold to Toronto parties, who came through early in the spring contracting .for the clip. The price is only three cents lower than across the line, where it is 17 cents this year. Mr. JlcCalg said that this small difference was somewhat out of the ordinary, the usual difference In price .being seven or night cents. He says that he has heard no satisfactory explanation of the reason for this decrease In dlffer- ence between Uie in ihe The advanSe party ot. the Y. M. C. A. boys' camp, eight in number, arriv- Crow's Xest, Monday, July 10, at-S.30, and-proceeded to carry their baggage over the railroad track ona and a Imlf miles to Hazel Spur and from thence half a mile to the camp- ing ground. The bovs immediately set to work preparing the grounds for the tents by pulling out ami cutting down trees. it taking (lavs to clear suffi- cient ground for nine tents and a cooking and dining .shack. After work ing three or four houis at this, the vveiB quite for and oh, nij, how good that dlnnei'tasted. Never was such a dinner, before. Aftei dinner four bo.vs returned, to Crow's Nest str.tion for the" remain-, der, of the baggage and to their_ de- light found d i.ase ot eggs and" a pail oLbutler But the noli was how to set it to the camp, they sought m v.im for A push or hand car but the boys v> ere not to be diunted The phvslcal director finally caught sight ot a wheel-harrow and after gaining the permission of the station master to use it, they saw- means of transporting their treasure to camp, so aftei piling the barrow full of eggs, and camping out- fit, they proceeded up the railroad trjck to headquarters Thcv present- ed a'unique specti-'i" Fastening straps to the front of the harrow, two nulled, another pushed while a fourth steadied the load hey will not forget this trip in a hurry, and It did need a great deal of itick to-lt-lve- liess, they boys were equal to the emergency, and the only.words of com' plaint .vere against the conductor who refused to let them off at Hazel Spur The evening was spent In.'flihlng and by nine thirty the bo.vs were reaily for bed. Tuesday ,was spent In much the same manner, accompanied by a few of the same hardships. Wednesday morning at ten-thirty the, rest of the boys arrived In charge of (Sonera! Sec- retary B. M... Thomasson, who, after surveying everything, took note of what was lacking to make things, com fortable, and then returned to. Leth- brldge to forward the necessary arti- cles. The boys were delighted with the spot chosen for the camp, hich is truly an ideal one, with a stream of water, as clear as crystal running close by the camp, and'the 'majestic Kockies surrounding it. some of which arc snow-capped Thuisdav morning all went to the lake lying west of the camp, and spent the time fishing. There are numerous lakes m this vicinity, but two one lv ing west and one east, are only three quarteis of a mile awav In the after noon, while the votinger bovo were playing bail and sightseeing close to camp, oC the older ones, accom hv Mr George A an Allen, made an ascent part wav up Mount Sentinel anil returned with glowing accounts of mountains covered with massive trees and beautiful lakes and snow capped mountains in the distance all went for a hike along the. smaller mountains. Following a stream they came lo a spot where thej were able to get a beautiful view of the surrounding turning to camp In time for dinner, the boys began to wonder whose appe: tiles they .had suddenly come; Into of. In the afternoon: several boys made their wav to. the side of the stream and sawpil down some trees to.form a.bridge across, which proved -verj useful, as some nice shady spots vvere to be found on the other side The general daily routine of camp consists of the following, viz. Bugle rail for rising at 6 dO am, after which tents are put in order and bedding hung on lines to air. Break- fast at a. in., followed ,by half an hour's Bible rtudy, after which hikes fishing, games, etc., are till dinner at 12 o'clock. Then resl for an hour, after which' short and games.are indulged in. Tea at 6 p.m.; after which blankets and bed- ding are taken in and tents and beds fixed up for the night. The evenings are usually spent In games, fishing and a general good time, till retiring liour, nine-thirty. ..Each day .three boys lake faligue duly, looking .after necessary camp work, and helping cook, and waiting on table, etc iriuge on me ioin ui -M'.IU in the meantime most ot .the camps affected unuei this dispute Before dealing with tne matters of [dispute that have been brought to 'Ihe attention ol the board I desir" lo bueflj louch upon Ihe actions of the Chairman, Rev C W Gordon, after all evidence had been taken in trying to arrive at'u settlement, an'd 'also in the making of the report I. bo somewhai irregulai, but 1 feel it a dutv to the Depaitmcnt and the public'to do so. On the ultimo, in requesting the committees to submit a; stalenient of their rela- tive positions, he .stated 1 hat he had not up to that time understood the points of. contention between the parties" ind further cmphasi-ed his desne to j have both parties submit'statements 'showing clearlv the points of conten- tion, and .outlining those particular things that each party insisted on hav- ing even at die expense of a contin nation of the deadlock. In response to this request the miners submitted a full and detailed statement setting forth their demands'. The operators' reply was'Impractiehhle and evasive in the extreme: inst. a-pro -poMl regarding submitted b) the chairman to the parties, which was rejected by both on the 3rd The Boird then made an attempt to draft a, report, but each of the other mem hers refused to -review, or argue on the eMilence that hod been placed be fore them, stating, that thej were agreed to sign a majbntv leport em bodving the suggestions contained In the pioposais submitted to the parties h> the chairman on the 1st inbt This procedure was, in ray opinion most in consistent as compared with the state- ment made bj the on June Contract Rates Substantial advances at Lille, Canniore and mines at and around Lethbridge. with a general ad- vance at all mines excepting- where extraordinary favorable conditions ex t Differential on This cannot be considered'as a gen er.il principle and should be tnken into consideration only with the conditions existing at the various mines General Provisions These contain some mailers of vital importance to both parties, but, aa the representatives of the miners only submitted what they desire in this direction It is safe to assume that these milters would not long delay settlement .providing .the question of wages could be satisfactorily arrang- ;n support of mv position generallj I desire to offer the following argu- ments e, the Board was asked tc -make com taV'VV'n- 'oT.o b tricls 0-- Montana, wash- udealing with the question of wag- generally are eiteullunalh high lo draw attention lo one matter n connection with the averages that were submitted by one company, 1 refer to thoM of the Crow s Nest Coal Co In Coal Creek the "laine! whltlO'khe endeavored to >lace statement's before the board was misleading and were compiled In suih form as to leave a wrong as (o what the col reel averages were for Ihese particular mines Tbe me Ihod adopled was to show nonie of thp averages of men had worked 1111 der the most favorable conditions. Again, In Michel, according to testl- money, it had the practice for two men to be loading on one contract check, and all coal senl ojil would be credlled to one man. Ihe othei man being classed as'a conipanv man and paid aa such Under Ihls method, whatever earnings over vvere credit- ed to the'contract miner, would have to be divided between the two meu In that place, and-while Ihe average would be shown as the full amount received by the contract mlnei, the actual wages would be less 10 per cent of the kmount above 13 01 The adop lion of this method of invment also clearly shows that the contract'rates in such, CBMB are not sufficient for the miner to make hence thi necessity for review, In all cases live pay rolls asked for were not-submitted, but .extracts giv- en that would take up considerable time beforc-any intelligcnl understand- ing as to the manner of compiling 01 the Information they intended to ,con: lev could be reasonablv arrived at, and, taking into further cons' leratlon thai all-documents have been at all times almost exclusively in the possession of the chairman, 1' has placed me In the position of bcmK able to get onlj a slight knowledge of the facts they, contain. While the1 miners were not In a position to submit t .i dence contradictory to the state- ments of dally averages submitted bj the companies, it was shown, in' the case of the Crow's Nest Pass Coal Co that the dmlj averages submitted dli not give any actual idea of the earnings. In connection with 'this mat ter a letter Was filed; by the ex-secre- torj of Michel Ixicnl which was re- .cened b.v himself fiom the Crow i i with cer com Utlmg Bno.lllg th 26th, that 'This whole mattel too big a question to be settled in an; but a thorough waj, and as far as I am able.I shalHmke it it would 'appear that the Interests of the had become a se'oniinrv consideration to the opera tlon of the mines ac'anv cost Not Wing had the privilege of reviewing their report 1 am unable to saj that 1 agree or disagree with them, with the exception of .the matter of Wages, hen after going over the question I onnd I could not conscientiously ac ept the position taken by the chair nan in the aforementioned proposal The matters of dispute resolve them- elves Into four main questions, as Are Tour Working Properly?

Another important matter teat was rawn to ihe attention ot the Boaid nd one which appears to have been ost sight of b> mv "colleagues, is the tfect of the elimination or restric- on of the blasting of coal on -.the of.contract miners. When the resent contract rates were- fixed it s admitted that they were based on he understanding that men were al o'wed'to blast their-coal.
