'For this reason' the miners 'claimed -that 'there such thing as a mijonty report and that the case was just where ii start- ed when the conciliation proceedings begin The miners were very "anxious to get the strike settled in the. interest ofMIie '.public, and would meet the operators' with "-thi? fir view Clem Stubbs also .reviewed- the grounds of. the miners' .contentions, showing wherein they considered that the'miners were not getting a square deal in the matter of wages, the same wage scale practically being in-effect now as eight years ago, with small exceptions. Referring to the minority report lie showed that al though it hail been brought out that in some..mines-the-contract men uene high wages thrie uerp other mines: where it was im- possible on account of the peculiar conditions existing for -a miner to make more than a living wage. "You may ;he. sure that the miners would not be willing to sacrifice four months wages, or probably a year's wages unless they had some grievance. We gentlemen, will form a committee to go into the you, in desire to effect a settlement today. Mr. Purcell for the miners stated that, this strike was, .costing them per month, and .that he had authority to force them to accept any reasonable agreement which might be reached. "Arid T'watlt'to say right here that Chairman Gordon acted un- fairly He acknowledged to me that the operators !dr itija 'district receive a higher price for their coal than any other plac.e on the continent, nevertheless he .what (s, pur- ported to be a majority report, asking that the miners go back to work at from JO to 20 per cent, less for com tract work, nnd that the day wage men go back to work at such a .email Increase that they would not then he receiving as much ns other day wage men in the northwest.

Thc fact of the mat- ter ix that, at the Calgary meeting lust -.March, the operators offered us better terms Uuin the so-called mu- jorlty report Is now giving us. We cannot accept the majority report in the face of wish to got the uiicstlon will moot, the operators at any time, with a com: mittee of-you gentlemen, and try to arrive at" a'settlement." then asketl Mr. Stoek- ctt if 'the operators would be willing to reopen negotiations with the min- ers by means of a committee compos- ed of the delegates present. "We didn't "come ;hcre to rearguc this ho, replied. "The op- erators have gone a long way already in offering an increase to day wage men, ;uid iln some cases a Bin a! I In- creasy to contract men. There is no decrease of from ten to twenty per cent. In contract rates, as the miners claim. The public'is already paying higher for their coal than they should and the increases given In the major- ity report will work a hardship with the public. The mines through the district are hot paying now, and to meet the miners' scale of wages would -be ruinous to the companies." Chairman you meet the miners as proposed by their re- presentatives, through a committee composed of the delegates Mr. Stockett: "We have only au- thority, to meet them along the lines of the majority report." -Mr. rurccll for the miners: "We will meefc'the operators, but what is the use?

The matter had evidently gone as tar as It could-go with both parties in'the room together. There seemed to 'be'no yetting them to- gether on' any common, ground on reach a conclusion, BO the chairman ;was empowered "to appoinfi a committee to meet tbe two parties and bring in their final answers so that the meeting might deal with the question from a public standpoint at the evening session. The committee-appointed consisted of one member from each province represented Mr Digg of fcalgarv Mr. Pollock of Ferule and Mr. Keglna. At seven o'clock they met the two parties and 'brought in the following report: We have succeeded in getting re- plies to questions which will answer both sides of tho controversy Question to the operators: "Are the operators willing to concede anything outside of the report ot the concilia- tion board1" 'No; we will abide by the majority report of (he conciliation board an signed by Dr. Gordon and Colin Mac- leod.

They came back with the.answer that they were not in a posltion; to give a definite statement along this line until they had heard from the labor department, but "If the miners will agree to work on Dr. Gordon's report, then the op- erators will be in a position to meet the miners and draw up an agreement. The miners were now asked to answer a similar question. "Would yon be willing to go to work if. the operators would dispense with Colin Macleod's riders to the. majority re- port9 'No, but we are, willing to open up the question, again with a committee of business men, Macleod's and Car- ters reports to be the outside bisis ior the fibdlngs of that committee and we wnl abide by it This give, the delegates some-definite ground to -ftork on There., was ..absolutely, no chance to bring the parties together whhe theM held these and n committee was therefore appointed' to 'bring in resolutions dealing with'the question from the atandnomt of the public and the public onlj such resolution to be their finding on the information brought out during the afternoon and wired to 'the labor depart- ment, at Ottawa showing it to be the general conclusion arrived at iftef doing everything which could be dona to bring1 the two parties together to reach a definite conclusion on that date. The a'bovc resolulon was ac- cordingly biought and is really a summary of the discussion at the meeting. It was carrled-unanlmouBly While the committee on resolutions was at work some discussion was pro- voked by a suggestion put forward by Aid. Goode of Lethbrtdge along the lines of the suggestion made at the meeting of the Board of Trade here last. Friday night, to the effect that the government, should be urged to appoint a permanent commission to deal with such labor questions. The resolution was 'brought in as follows: That the government of the Do- minion of Canada be 'urged to ap- point, a permanent commission foi ilic investigation of industrial dis- putes, so that such.inquiries may be conducted 'by unprejudiced experts having no connection with either party in the dispute.. That such amendments in existing laws be made as shall enable the gov- ernor general upon .the recommenda- tion of such committee to suspend for such time as ho may be advised, laws for the enforcement of the find- ing of the commission.. The resolution was passed unanim- ously and the meeting broke up about eleven o'clock. Although the delegates felt that the results were not satis- factory, nevertheless they went away thoroughly, acqualncd with the wholo controversy, and a hope that the gov- ernment would feel called upon to take drastic measures toward a re- opening of the mines of the district. THE ELECTIONS SEEM TO BE NEAR AT HAND TELEGRAPHIC BRIEFS A ten and a half pound lobster was caught a man hi White Plains, X. Y. In adopting an order to keep hogs off the streets of Hazard, Ky., the Town Council said in.Its official edict "It is a matter of town pride and Haz- ard spirit to quit associating with hogs on our streets." In a search continuing for twelve years and costing more than. threc-rjunrterit of u million dollars has been recovered from the conceal- ed assets of Gaynor and Greene, who defrauded the government, out of in Savannah harbor dredging I contracts in Sir Wilfrid Makes Lucid Statement at, Ottawa Ottawa, July Wilfrid LBU- rier made It clear in the House ciity that reciprocity had to be passed at once or tliero would he an election. The statement was inspired by re- marks of W. S. Middlcboro, M.-P. for North Bay. Sir Wilfrid' said: "Aly hon. friend rose for the pur- pose of trying to convince this house and the country at large that tho Op- iwsition is not obstructing the busi- ness of the government and is not obstructing'the reciprocity agreement, which has been before this house since January 25th last. "However, he had not proceeded very far before lie gaye away his whole case. He pretends that the Opposition is not obstructing, yet at the same time he says: "Let reciproc- ity If it Is not why should not reciprocity go on. That is what -we on this side of the'House, want. The hon. gentleman'-, opposite told us what we already knew, and I thank him for befrng candid hi the statement, that they did not wa'nt re- ciprocity to go through, but -wanted it to wait, and that they are trying today in this House to prevent it from going oq. "We have had speeches of one kind and another, we have- heard the same arguments repeated ad nauseam. .The other day one of the TflHppcted mem- bers of this Hoiiue prefaced his re- marks by Baying that there was noth- ing, new to be said upon tin is ques- tion. That was perfectly, true, yet he took three ho.u-rs or more to say what had been said over and over again. Oentlemen opposite ask us why we sho.uld not have a-redistri- bution. Well, redistribution not before house today, neither is the census; but Me reciprocity agreement. Is before the House and we can go ou with It. "If the hon. gentlemen wish: to pre- vent an election let us go on with the reciprocity agreement and there ..will jbo no eleciou. Speaks With Candor "I have nothing to hide in this mat- ter. I will speak to the House with candor. Wihen I see the evidences of obstruction taking place in this House, day after of "No, I read 'the reports of the speeches made here, while I was in England, and when I learned that tho leader of the Opposition was making a triumphal to.ur of the (opposition members: "Hear, Sir "I did not need fchese cheers to know that .hon. gen- tlemen opposite are satisfied with cheap triumphs. Anyway, the leader of the Opposition was making tills triumphal tour of the west juid i saw it stated that the Opposition would no allow the agreement to go through As soon as I read hat I comimmi dated wltih my colleague the Leoie- tary. of state and Instructed him to proceed with the preparation of the Voters' lists so that It hon. gentlemen opposite should continue to want ie- clprocity to wait we appeal lo the people as to whether It should wait or not. "We do not want reciprocity to wait. We want It to pass, euhei in this House or before tbe country.. I have notihing whatever to conceal about the ftter. We are before the people, and if government is'to be made a farce, if tlie minority abuses the priv- ileges of a minority, in older to pre- vent progress, there are judges over us to decide between .the government ind the opposition. Surely these t-nn. gentlemen do not object to .an election. That is our position. My hon. friend'tells me that they want redis- tribution. Well, redistribution hills have been parsed before now and the iiaual regular course bos been to take census one year and have redistribu- tion the following year." Redistribution a Year Later The census was taken in 1881, and in ISO! and upon every occasion the redistribution bill was passed the following year, In 1SS2, and In 1902 respectively. ,If we, follow-.the usual course'we have plentv of time for redistribution. It is true the lead- fir of the Opposition told us on March 8 that we should have justed redis- trjbutjon first, but he did n9i reflect at that time thsit census could not be taken before June, first. Tlie law on that point was changed some years ago. At confederation, 1 was put down as the date for taking the census but everybody knows that April is not u good season for taking the census. The roads In' many par'ts are not fa- for traffic, but the.first of June is a season for cen- sus work. The date waa changed and nobody Objected. Does my hon. friend believe that It was possible to have redistribution in Canada within threo mbntihs of taking of the census. H is impossible to have it done. It never has been done either under a Conservative government or under a Liberal The country Is too large and tlie, means of com- munication too imperfect. .We must wait until thu last return is In before beginning redis'trlbuUon. We will have redistribution next year. "if the Opposition chooses to go on with the tactics of obstruction aa they have been doing, then we shall [have t-o consider what is to be And if, In the last resort, the only way IB to appeal to the people and ask them to pass judgment between, us and the- Opposition, we are quite prepared and ready for H.." A Vote of the People Mr. Bordea in reply said: prime minister is pressing for a vote in the House. Well, we are pressing for a vote In the vote of the people. The right, hon. gentle- man who professes himself to be a Liberal of the British school, a demo- crat to the hilt, is unwilling to give that vote except at the sacrifice.-, of redistribution. Mr. Borden rcpeaed his offer to take the census, give the west Its in- creased representation .and then sub' init the question to ihe people of Can- ada. He added: "I think It waa very good advice then and It. will do no harm to repeat it. As a matter of fact' the prime minister magnified the diffi- culty of enumerating the people. I am Informed that in Great. Britain, within ihvo or three days of enum- eration the result is made known, and 1 believe that if the government of Canada had taken steps immediately after the Stti of March, when I-asked them to hasten the enumeration it could have been completed before the end of June. We might have' had a redistribution bill before this par- liament at the present moment. Fielding Interrupted Hon. W. S. Fielding followed being frequently Interrupted by the Opposi- tion, iie stated that for six months the Opposition had that what they wanted was an appeal- to the people but the? had now made. It clear that they did ncit want; member of the Opposition thereupon demanded that he should the statement back and a rapid cross-fire' between Mr. Fielding :and ;the mem: bers across the way'.followed. Fielding then went into Ji review of reciprocity question and redistribution stating that while the west wantedI disribiiitfon it wanted reciprocity: more. He paid a tribute to president Tai't and asserted that the Americans were now recognizing the Injustice of 'their old methods; of ;deallng with Canada regarding reciprocity and are now making a change, and offering a fair and To Force Premier Asquith to Create New Peers (Continued from Front Page.) volt agninst the veto bill, says "For instance, it uould be easy for 100 members to arrest proceedings of House of Commons by continuous disorder as has been done abroad In normal times tbiB would be able, when the constitution has once been broken by the use of the rogative there is nothing noting: it- self moral which should riot be Juatl- fled by way of retaliation and as pro- tection of the rights of law." Lord Lansdowne a promise from more' than 150 to tupport policy Pi allowing the bill to paif. while'upwards of 100 are claimed by section of the party which is fighting Tor "no surrender." It" is thought, however, that the larger number; of peers will not pledge themselyei cither way, but will find it convenient to be absent when the bill is present- ed. Out thing is certain, the govern- ment will not send back to the House of Lords until positive of its passage. Mr. Balfour and Lord Lansdowne had a conference this afternoon re- garding'assurances tliat they as lead- ers of the Unionist party could give 'Air. Asdi'ith 'that peers amendment would not he insisted upon. King. George today sent, for Viscount Staid- win, an influential moderate Unionist who hns the confidence of both part- ies to a large measure. It is ex'pected the Viscount hereafter will take a prominent part In negotiations tween the leaders of the two parties.
