If I nm to judge by the number of comments congratulatory and other- wise, that been, expressed from time to time and'more especially this lust week, it would appear that the Labor World column is read by every direction, subscriber to the Daily Herald. This is certainly as it-should be, and while I must apologize to the hundreds of er my readers in not being able to 'de. vote more room to this particular subject, yet it has always been tny endeavor with the space at my com- mand to furnish them with the most interesting news affecting labor. This is the reason why I h'ave been unable to insert all the news items from the different sources, iind I trust thoso contributing will bear this in mind. When this live daily grows I hope to see the Labor Column expand. ius sent a warning circular over to Britain, speaking among other things of the "congestion of the labor mar- and this at the same time that the S.

I wonder if he is desirous of opening out a dry goods store, but no, it cannot be, for he is "hard and needs the "mon." As this column is overflowing he will have to wait till next Saturday when I hope to con- vince him with figures. In the mean- time here is his seems to have'hit a good number in this city pretty hard. While the writer of this.column may not be known to sonic, it appears that most people do know. This past week I have had dozens of questions fired at me, and I have Ix-cn told of at least half a dozen letters in -defence of the the "major" coming my way but at the 'time of writing only one has ap- peared. Until the "major" has time to an- swer my rejoinder, T do not intend to say much more on this question, but I would like to draw the attention of the "Emigration" Army to the action of the Methodist Church in Canada on the question of immigra- tion. The Home Mission Department of the Methodist Church of Canada Labor Editor Lethbridge note the condescending at- tention you give my request for proof of your statement re the in- creased cost of living during the past ten months, but do not find the proof Von were not asked to reiterate your statement but to give the fig- ures and we are still waiting to see them. You state that rents, coal, Junior, milk, room rent, and meal tickets are higher, and I believe you to be mistaken. Of the seven articles mentioned one is certainly cheaper than it was last summer, four I believe to Ixj the same price and two to have advanc- ed some, but not fifty per cent. But after twice making a positive statement, you certainly can give the figures to prove it. so let's have them.

However next week will bo soon en- ough for friend Russell, und by thut time I may huvu solved the problem of whut he writes uhout. is the1 U-lhbridge, Altu., June 18.'08. The Editor of the lie-raid: you please give spuco m your valuable to this letter. Seeing so much of late in the Labor Coluji'm about S, A. immigration 1 would like to slaU' that 1 am in full possession of the facts of how the Labor Editor (Mr. Harold) came by tho item ho wrote two weeks ago in the Labor Column and 1 am prepar- ed to state if necessary who gave him the lie that- he writes ubout. it was not a Salvation Army ollicer, nor was it one of tho S. A. subor- ates but a friend of tho Labor Edit- or gave him a pajxjr from which he copied some of the contents and then he made himself a liar by say- ing the Army gave it. Now, sir, don't you think the La- bor I'Jditor was a little overcome by the exuberance of his own verbosity when ho penned the lie in the Labor Column, lie little thought by this time thut 1 would bo in the know as to how he came by that paper. It is five or six months ago that the Labor Editor was trying to find out something about the S. A. emigra- tioo but tho person he was in con- versation with in the Dallas Hotel foiled his movement as that person happened to bo one of. the assisted emigrants into this country by the S. A. who was- net as the Labor Ed- itor would havo liked to have found it, assisted to this city, but was sent to Saskatoon. At that time there was two whom the Army had assisted anyway in this city and I expect they were like a good many more, led astray by reading about Lethbridge having a building boom on and at the same time half the carpenters were out of work. When that was spoken of in tho paper and it was also mentioned about the said boom being on in the Trades 'incl Labor Council and the carpenters said it was tho local papers who were to blame at that time for the influx into !.he city but not a word was mentioned in the Labor column to that effect. Now, sir, I would like to ask the labor editor one question. Is he afraid to answer the question, of the S. A. Major, us to who the Army of- ficial was that gave him the lie If he is he (the Labcr Editor) had bet- ter throw up the sponge und say 1 am beaten. It appears to me he is much tempted to shrink from answer ing it and I don't think there is one right thinking person, in Lethbridge whether saint or sinner would give him credit for asking the Major a j lot of questions, when he is afraid to answer the one put to him (the La- Editor) I think myself it would be -better if (Mr. Labor Editor) would move out into the world a lit- tle bit and gain some experience as to what he is going write or keep his head level and not get excited .but answer one thing before going on with another that is poor maneuver- ing he will find himself ambushed if he doesn't alter his tactics. I don't hesitate one moment in say- ing that the Trades and Labor Coun- cil would not back him up in a lie. I see in the Labor Column of "last Saturday, the 13th that the Labor Editor tried to act ignorant as to are known as the Prairie Pro- vinces, but further on he (the Labor Ed) has to use the same thing to put a question to the Major and don't we read often of the Prairie Provinces in the Local papers and others too.

The defense claim- ed the picketing was only for the purpose of getting and giving informa- tion regarding the strike. Judge Hardy held that picketing was not il- legal provided the men did not beset the works with a view to compelling others from abstaining from doing lawful work. There was no evidence of restraint, he said, nor of compul- sion. There are authorities to sup- port this action and accordingly he dismissed the two cases in question and the remainder of the hundred umn is almost full up Be- lieve me World column, and while apologizing for inflicting such a terrible punish- ment on my readers, I regret I have L.

The speaks for Branlford, Ont., June un on moulders who are on strike a Buck Stove Works in this city have established their right to do pi eke duty. The strike opened early in April. The latter part oi the month the police at the request of the firm interfered with picketing done the union in the vicinity of the work where the nonunion men who ha taken the places of the strikers wer quartered. The union men wer summoned for besetting the work and as a result one hundred of thcr" were committed for trial waivin hearing before the police magistral At the trial yesterday before Judge Hardy, two cases were taken up. Evidence, showed that tho men had maintained pickets in the vicinity of the works bui had uot compelled anyone to cease working. The crowr. contended the case was difficult to were dropped. The strike is still on. Lest the foregoing carried you all away in blissful ignorance of things earthly, it is my painful duty to call your attention to another iteia in the same paper of same date. There is some talk of trouble in the Pass between the Companies and the union officials. Tho charges made art; very serious and demand immediate action on the part of the. miners' of- ficials. It is said that the condi- tions in the mines have not been sat- isfactory to the men but through the influence of the paid union officials no trouble has arisen. Recently when tho management of one of the largo mines changed, it was., discovered that the previous manager had been paying a promin- ent district union official six hundred dollars n month which was distribut- ed among leaders of the local unions and one or two district officials, to pay them for kerping things quiet among the men.
