June leaving for the east this morning Minister of Labor Senator Gideon Hobertion, who has been here for ten days taking an active part in Ihe general slrike, gave out an in- terview lo Ihe press in which he definitely staled the 'poKi-- tion of the government. "The of the' gtneral slrike now sit In Ihe aihes of .their folly. In respond- ing to the call lo strike a majority violated and repudiated their ob- ligations to their own trades' unions and to their employers. Individually and collectively they wilfully dlicarded their agree- ment., that the posies- fiion of what they are contending for I. of little value. Labor- leaders who advocate that might is right, who Jiold.that law, Justice nnd honor should be discarded at will, merit'and receive the con-, damnation of good citizens. Irr a. neneral the force is. directed against the whole community, including those innocent of any responsibility for the offense. Public Indignation is Immediately aroused because of.- Ihe inconvenience, loss and suf- fering Imposed upon'Innocent peo- ple. Therefore sympathetic strikes must always fail. Socialism ha. long recognized that trade, unionism is an impossible bar to its revolutionary progress and seeks throilBh the One Big Union movement to undermine and de- stroy the labor organization, whose policies are lo regard its' obligation as sacred and inviolate. Employers must not mistake the defeat of the neneral sympathetic strike as a defeat of organized libor. On the contrary, labor will emerge from Ihe conflict strenglh- ened from thewi.dom gained from Us experience. Numerous strong labor organizations have by their votes and actions largely contrl- bf ed lo the outcome because they believe the general' sympathetic slrike Is wrong, vicious ar.d de- moralized. Employers should leek to deal Justly and.al this time liberally with their workmen, and -thus assist the bona fide labor movement." Saturday morning the general officers ef Ihe railway. havlno headquarters In Winnipeg issued a statement to all employee! on strike, giving them until Monday at 10 o'clock to return to work, and, falling lo do so, their places, will be. filled.
