Deer...........'. .001 000 -Tanguay; Dunn, Thelan and Spencer, Claiming that Englishmen are be- ing discrimlnaod against hy the city, and that Superintendent Doughty, in charge ot the track work-of the street railway system prefers Italian labor- ers to Englishmen for track laying, Mr. Uniting, iTlfi' Sixth avenue'North, has udrtressed thn following protest tho Herald: "Editor, 1 crave the indulgence of your valuable newspa- to give a, few examples of how Mr, Doughty IB treating his men? "In the first place, I may 'inentlOii hat 1 am a ratepayer, and at the >resent moment, I dp not know how am going to pay my rates, and IIB I mve a largo family depending on mo, bullcve that what I am going to say vill catch the eye of Mayor Hatch, or ome of his subordinates. I have gone morning after morning o apply for work on the street rail vay, and I am always told 'No.' And II the time Mr. Doughty is starting talians to work. "It Is an open secret that he pre ers Italians to white 111011, nnd should e say that Italians are more suited o the work, I can confront him with He He. aa I happen to that Eng- slunen can beat thorn, given the hanco. "Today he fired fifteen men, and ut hree o'clock "he sent an Italian fav- orite out of town to bring in twenty men, probably from Jlt-gina, .from which place 'he brought in a batch, along with a. few teams. f Signed) ''HATEPM'EK." Lethbridge, June 10. The above was received under the caption "Fair Play in Street Railway Work." Mr. Doughty's Side The Herald called on Mr. Doughty this morning, for the purpose of get- ting his side of the controversy. Mr. Dnughly has a very different opinion from Mr. Linning, and absolutely dea- ies that Englishmen are discriminated against In his department. Got'ting out his time books for the present month, lie went over the list, ami out of one hundred men now at work, he pointed out tho namus of forty-four Englishmen. The ing rlfty-sb: are of all nationalities, arid the Italians are not preferred to any of the other nationalities repre- sented. "Whenever .men are needed, they arc taken as they said Mr. Doughty, "Then they are found suitable, they are kept so long as they are needed. But the number of men necessarily fluctuates. Some days we have two hundred men on, and only a j few'days after there are only one hun- dred. The reason for this is 'that we j have a great deal of trouble in get- ting ties. When we have a supply we rush the work, and therefore put on a lot of-new men. When there are no ties the oxtra men are laid off. Hurrah for the Irish "We have a certain estimate to work to. It Is my duty to get the 'work done inside this estimate. If I were to keep a full gang on all the time I would soon eat up the esti- mate, and would not have the work done. Aa for preferring Italians to Englishmen for railroad work, I might I would rather have an Irish- man any day in the week when it comes to.laying track. But "for spik- ing the Italian is, as a rule, better than the Englishman, and any Italians em- ployed by me are doing that class of work." To get the best possible men for the job is Mr. D.oughty's aim. He has to work inside the estimates, and he is going to employ men who can do that for him, regardless of nation- ality. If the .Englishman can hold up his end'with the Italian, the English- man will be sure of a steady job. The cannot keep his end up must ;o, ,be he Englishman or Italian.
