Many places along the northern telegraph line also were illuminated. Provisions of a proposed now child labor law were laid before President Wilson by a group of labor leaders headed by Sampol Gonipers, president of the American Federation ot Labor.

But wiiore the disease of dissension has .sjire;id and become noticeable ho diagno.sis it and suggests a common sense treatment, in a free nnd easy (lemoenu-y like Canada where compulsion (iiiher ot labor or capital is abhorrent, it is difficult to see what other course a .llinisler of Labor could take. .\t liie heart of every Canadian labor iroiilile may be found lack ot sympathy, porliapj of long standing, due a.s niiicli to the employer ns to the worker.

Speaking to (lie writer of how the Industrial Dlsyiites investigation Acts works out, Mr, Crothors said: "It provides a means tor the adjustment of differences arising between employers and workmen by a board of conciliation, one member of which is chosen by the men, one by the employer and the third selected by them, or, in the event ot their being uu-ablo to agree. clio.seii by the .Minister ot Labor. The men selected by the parties, as is ciniimon in arbitratloi.s, generally becomo advocates respectively of the parties naming them, and the decision is really given by the chairman so elected. It, therefore, is important to select a high type of man who ia absolutely fair, and I have always for that purpose selected a judge it one was at all available. "It has �occasionally,^ happened that where the appointment came to me I have been requested indirectly by ono side or the other to appoint as chairman a man favorable to tlie person applying to me. To lliustrate, the solicitor of a large company on one occafijon came and asked" mo to appoint a certain man favorable to the company which I indignantly refused to do. Then a member of the house of commons, a supporter ot tho government of the day, came lo me nnd repeated the reoucat, whon 1 toUl him such action on my part would bo obviously unfair and would make mo unwortliy the position I held, I said, 'the company has already chosen one man on the board and your proposition is that tlioy .shall select a soc-! ond,' He became angry and said it [ was tho first time lie had ever asked a i favor of tho labor department and that it would be the last timo, "I learned tho decorum of public of-tlco many years ago fi-om an old-fashioned high court judge ot tho province of Ontario who, on ono occasion, wont to I^mlon to hold the assizes nnd before reaching 'the court houao met his brother with whom I was speaking. After the usual cordial greetings the judge said to his brother, "What are you doing here?" On being told that he yas a witness at tho court horse the judge asked, "In a case that 1 am to try?" His brother replied ''Yes," Then tho judge remarked 'You need not remain any longer for 1 will not try a cnee in which you are to bo a witness'." ,1s Sympathetic With Labor.
