POLITICAL REFORMS (Continued, from trout mutual understanding, and he 'minfe Lclhbrldgo went ngalusl thuin 180. oil to hour from tiro [armors believed It wouldn't take much to their views on tlie matter, und the poaltlon they would lake. At (lilu point Mr. Treglllus, J. W, Criilg of liowvllle, John Gibson of Sundiiil, and Mr, Qulucey seat- ed on snecliil report of th-a committee. liyBlop of Coleumn wanted lo know If tlie'jirb'posod federation was ]iot to work along legislative lines like' the. Canadian federation. Tne Object Aimed At The chairman, McNabb. bolng priv- ileged to speak, replied to tho quoE- tlon. lie said Mr. Levlnne had out lined the grievance of tho miners iiud inability to copo with tliem. The proposed federation would aim -at getting legislation of a reform character. He noticed that the. U. F. A. had got legislation by aggressive work with the law makers. He had been on'delegations which waited on the governments, and they had al- ways been told that they represented one class. They were told Mi at tho farmers wt're prosperous and content- ed. Ho had tried could say it waa the easiest way of losing money he knew of. The 'sooner all classes arise and make united de- mands for legislation, the sooivar would reforms come and grievances disappear. He knew that 90 per cent, of the farme-fs .are mortgaged as far as they can get. The Interests of the farmers and the city toilers are Iden- tical. If organized they could BO to the legislature as a united band and co-operate In demanding legislation for th-e farmer, the city toiler, and the miner. A solid front is neces sary. He would be opposed to the federation taking a definite line of political action. The men who are tolling are not sufficiently educated for that yet, and should unite togeth- er to get the best possible from the present powers. T. 0. Nesty, Seven Persons, speak- ing for the fanners, said the delusion was .popular that, the farmers glorious time. Around Seven Persons there are only'thre-e men who had not placed a .their honie- steails, after proving up. People say the farmers haven't brains enough to go to the legislature, and that is why tho members are lawyers, i. Ha' con- tended the -farmers had .the abil- ity. Ill the past farmers had to no promises, while the other fellows got the legislation. The U. F. President W. 3. Treglllus was asked to speak. He said all who produce wealth are laborers, and the fa-nr-ers are as much laborers as' the miners or any other workers. He was strongly In favor .of getting together. "We are suffering from a wrong distribution of said Mr. Treglllus. "We farmers receive than bO cants of every dollar we earn." The farm- ers are no better off than they. Tero Mb jears ago. The wealth is taken 'rom the former through transporta- tion charge's being double what-they get .the Conservative party to steal Iho Liberal clolhes glvo tho country wider markeU. The grain blockade had had Its cffool. Continu- ing, Jlr. Allan dealt with the Domin- ion -Government guaranteeing the bori'js of the C. N, H. and to do so mortgaged the farms of t'Ke country. The government can do It for rail- 'way companies; why not do it for the farmers? If money could be got for 4 5, per cent. It .would be better than: iraying 8 to 10 per cent, and giving thd loan companies practical ownership of the farm. Wo have got to get In the position that tho farm ers will place the government In a position to borrow money to loan to the .'armors. Proceeding, the speaker said candidates are nominated by and 'when they go to the House of Commons they vote for the and not for the farmers who had voted for their election. He advocated direct legislation and the recall as. the cure. _ The platform of the U: F. A. Is direct legislation and political action where deemed exped- ient. Dealing with the grain blockade -Mr. Allan said there IB as much of. a blockade to4ay as ever, and he won- dered what it would be like next fall. The west, according to the Railway Commission, is suffering from 20 to 150 per cent, discrimination in rates, a fact which demonstrated the need of getting together. Direct legisla- tion is the only remedy. A motion followed to limit the speeches to ten minutes, and carried. A Printer Orator L. T. English, Lethbridgc, said he had listened to the farmers with In- terest, but he could not say he had been led to see wherein their griev- ances apply to labor as a whole. He could emulate farmers, and show where .the prlnters'.-lot is unenviable, but it wouldn't help the cause "in view much. The farmers and miners complain of disabilities and exactions and it is'all to the-.end that the. em- ployer may exact a maximum :of pro- fit.- The sum total is that the cap- italist extracts returns from the labor of some one else. He couldn't see much use in sending delegations to the legislature, for there capital is entrenched.. He: knew of only one politi'cal party wdrthy of Hie name, anil. that is the' pWty of capital. That party all, :i whether known as Liberator Conservative. Mr.: English was ..expounding social- ist theories when the time .bell.

Mr. Quincey, voT' said he couldn't understand what MrTEnglish advocated. He seemed to want to keep the farmers arid city, toilers di- vided. He owned a farm, but he was stiH only a worker.

Tregillus, continuing, people enhance the value of lands, rat do not get the increase; it, goes nto the pockets or the owner. In marketing his wheat, beef, the armer is not asked what he wants or U. He is told what he; will be given. He has no say in the matter it all; tlie monopolists fix the price. Mr. Tregillis show-ad that 'there.

He strongly favored a provincial federa- tion of labor, Mr. Foster, of Cavnforth, said by combination with the laboring nveri they could force direct legislation and get what they want. A-Socialist Levinne, of Lille, didn't favor going-ih a-body to demand legislation; They had the majority, and didn't noed to favors tt they were unit- ed; He condemned both the'Liberal and Conservative 'parties, and cited instances of oppression of the miners by both jails and and militia was about all the miners received.

Talk Business Mr. Thompson, -Medicine Hat, said they .had lots of speeches, hut he ihad- n't heard anything about the motion before 'the house.. Sc-aing, therefore, there objections, he favored proceeding with the organization of the federation of labor. The Miners' Policy Ctem Stnbbs, president of the min- ers, district JS, said, having come in late, .he didn't know whether thoy were trying :to' form a federation or trying to tack themselves on to a po'liticnl party. The miners are h-sart- lly in favor .of the proposed federa- tion. The miners, arc ready to com- bine'with all other workers, in cvder to get a Calr share of what ttvay pro- duce, they had followed top many blind alleys, and run their heads against too many, stone walls. He wanted to see u federation, and a pol- icy, formed to which all could sub- scribe. Mr. Gray, of Grassy Lak-a, said his R A. were In favor of federation if it could'produce the goods.
