It is plainly evident that the action of the commissioners in firing all the men and reinstating the men they Ranted was done with the purpose of getting at the active union work- ers" evidently have no use tot organized labor The union has an agreement with the cit) of Lethbridge signed by the ma) or and tth the seal of tbe city attached One clause ot this agree- m.ent dtbUnctlv states that a man shall be entitled to hold his run in accordance with his age in the-' con- itnuous service of the department. This clause is in accord with all 'railroad practice Age in the ser- vice decides what place he has on the senioriU list The commissioners ignored the union and the provisions of this signed contract, when they fired the men and took back whom they pleaseu, under -the pretense that fhey were to be guided by "effici- Ibe senior men on the cars took on the job when times were good and Corked for a wage that most work- men, looked on with contempt, simply because ,they knew that their senior- ity should repay them when the sys- tem grew older The system beneftt- trd b> having these experienced men when the cars first started.

Aow he has not acted, up to ..his promises The other commissioners eudenlh have been dictating to him Is not Mr Reid in charge of .that department 1 If he is to- be dic- .tated to by. the others, what is the usc'of having a high paid official for that-work. It seems as though the commissioners are but a one-man band playing music that will best .sui'( the clique that endorsed them. It is'about time a made in this council and get some men at itthe ;head of each department who -have courage enough to back up their convictions and handle their end of the business. Thanking you in anticipation, T remain, DONALD McNABB, Jr. Crimbrook, B. C., June 16.
