Lethbridge Daily Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 6, 1908, Lethbridge, Alberta JUNE I, i t ii Along Mark Your Ballots on Monday as Follows: ceiire this carrtsst attention it de- i-oi c E.C FOR THE BY-LAW TO VOTE FOR THE BY-LAW TO WIE X TJ O JL i 5 IliMirj FOR BOW T) VOTE X Everybody should make it a point to bei at in the La- bor Hail tonight. The Brotherhood of Carpenters have always put up a first clase affair, and I am given to understand that this is to be' the best ever. The price of admission is only 75c and as the surplus is to be devoted to a very commendable ob- ject I trust they will have a bumper The local Federal Labor Union is also holding a smoker next Saturday evening in the Lafcor Hall. This is to he a good, thing and everybody should remember the date. Tickets 50c. A special and detailed investigation conducted by the Civil Service Asso- ciation at Ottawaj Oftt., into local .price; tendencies during the past ten years showed that expenditures on 2 of a family of five living on an inline of per year had increased 34 per cent, during the last decade. I figure in this city that the cost of living has increased 50 per cent, during the past ten months, and yet, in most cases, the wages have not increased. In some cases these have decreased, notably in the case of the laborers employed in the build- ing of the big bridge. During 1907 several important en- actments affecting labor were passed ;by the Dominion Parliament and the 'different provincial legislatures. 'Among measures enacted by the form- ;er were an act fot the protection of the wages of laborers engaged in the construction of the National Transcon- tinental Railway an act providing for the inspection of meats and canned goods; and providing for the deporta- tion of prohibited immigrants. Among the bills which were intro- duced during the session, but which were not finally passed, were: A bill to limit the hours of labor in connec- tion with contracts for public works; and a bill in the form of an amend- ment to the Conciliation Act 1900, pro- viding for the imposition of a fine of 1100 in the case of an alien interven- ing in a strike or lockout, existing or apprehended, between employers and employees, or between differnt classes of employees in Canada. The Alberta Legislature passed amendments to the Railway and Steam Boilers Acts. Acts for the taxation of. corporations, the destruc- tion pf noxious weeds, and the incor- poration of a Dairymen's association also assented to. Do Y09.Make Pastry?

It has made no at- tempt to dragoon its opponents. On thii cautrary .the Government lias made every reasonable and honorable attempt to meet their wishes. Sir Wilfrid has plead for a measure ac- ceptable to both parties and fair to both. He has modified the objection- able clause so that all savor of parti- sanship..has been taken from it. The Opposition is assuming a very grave responsibility. For the sake of party advantage, it is obstructing the country's business, prolonging the work of Parliament and bringing dis- tress to thousands of civil servants and other creditors of the Govern- ment. Should it; by these tactics, force a dissolution of Parliament, it will go to the country condemned in advance, in the minds of well think- ing citizens, as composed of men, un- able to appreciate the responsibilities that devolve upon the Opposition, anc therefore unfit to-be entrusted, with the still more onerous responsibilities of a Government. he World of Labor UNDER WHICH KING? If all the Trades Councils in Can- ada would follow in the steps of the local- Trades and Labor Council and petition their member against the fur- ther admission of ihe Oriental races into, this country, something wpuld be achieved. The latest piece of im- pudence on the part of these brown men is just where think the line ought to be drawn. It apears that a railway conduc- tor in the discharge of his duty, dis- turbed the slumber of a carload of Japanese. The little brown men im- mediately rushed out, beat the con ductor almost to death, and forced the whole train crew to flee in order to save their livqs. Evidently nobody must interfere with the sleep of mem- bers of this royal and dominant race, i Why is it that we persist in regard- ing the Japanese as capable of the 1 same emotions and obedient to the same instincts as ourselves? The Jap regards the Canadian in exactly the same light as he regards a Korean, a feeble person who can he bullied at pleasure. And this particular in- cident is merely a foretaste oi the time whcii the Japanese vail rule, as n superior caste, the whole of the west of Canada. The Oriental will only submit to force. He docs not recognize the rules by which the game is played according to the way in which -we live our lives. If the Japanese who assaulted this" conductor wore paraded against the nearest wall and per- cmptorially shot, the object lesson would be quite apparent to the Ori ontnl mind, which xinon our suits for damages, criminal court and legal procedure as simply an cvi dencc of weakness. The Oriental submitted himself t the Mussulman because he knew tha the Mussulman wowM kill and spar lot. Great Britain saved ihe Em-1 )5re of India, by tying him across the" nouth of a gun and blowing him to atoms, thereby, in his mind at least, not merely destroying his corporal existence, but "abolishing .his hope of a future life. Such is the kind of argument that an Oriental mind understands. Where wti Canadians make a mistake is in imagining that he can appreciate any other. We live under a fond delusion that a Jap is amenable to the ethical restraint expressed in our laws. Sim ilarly we think that he may become actuated by the principles Oi our re- (Montreal Herald.)

In other words, the minority pro- j-cses to control the majority. The pqwur to dq so is certainly inherent in an Opposition, which by endless discussion, can prevent the House concurring in "supply." But the pow- er has always been excercised with the greatest care, and only under cir- cumstances that are extraordinary. It has felt that to invoke it on slight occasion would be the negation of Parliamentary government, and that a very serious responsibility would rest on the Parliamentary min- ority which exercised it.
