Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 4, 1910, Lethbridge, Alberta 8 The Lethbrhlge Daily Herald, Friday. March STRONG BID FOR ARBITRATION General Sympathetic' Strike Company Make Claims 6it Co to submit the Question at issue to arbitration is becoming stronger. The menace of a general strike Uas sirred up business men and large emplovens of labor and the effort? made'vesterday to have the company to accept arbitration in some form were renewed today with vigor. The ultimatum is offered by foe Rapid Transit Company that "the company has -not changed and will not in any manner change its attitude with re- spect to arbitration, already outlined in its reply to the Ministers' Associa- tion." This has not disheartened those who are working for peace. The fact that the leaders of the strikers have expressed themselves as willing to accept a very fair proposition to ar- bitrate 'has removed one obstacle to- ward peace and the influences at work! oa the Rapid Transit Company feel that -shey will be successful in avoid- ing the general labor conflict. The attitude on arbitration as out- lined by the company to the Minis- ters' Association is as follows: "There are but nwo real questions j at the bottom of che strike: the right of our employes to deal di- rectly -with us without the interven- tion of an organization officered and controlled by outside men, and second the right of this company to have the same freedom in 'hiring and discharg- ing anen that the men have in stay- ing with or leaving the company. These rights are fundamental and in- alienable and do not submit chem-i selves to any form of arbitration. To surrender chem to any outside inter- est 'Would be to abrogate management 01 the corporation, which duiy to law imposes upon us as directors." Both branches of the city council meet this afternoon and some action by the political organization in power is not unexpected. While the efforts to bring about peace are 'being made, organized labor is going ahead with, its arrangements to carry out the gen- eral strike of the Central Labor Union. THE LORDSHIP OF THE UPPER AIR Interesting Lecture by Mrs A. T. Robinson Last Night Wednesday evening's.lecture in Wes- ley Church in "The Lordship or the Upper was up against wind, mud. a'nd the popular Y.1SLC. enter-j tainmentf in the opera house. Thej triple combination affected the atten-1 dance somewhat but otherwise the ev- ening was much enjoyed by all. The lecturer of the evening found a start- point in the growing imperial sen- timent of our day. In brief but com prehensive terms she sketched the po- litical situation in the dif- ficulties 01 government arising from j the segregation of the units of the i British Empire, their varieties oi color, race and creed, their vast num- bers and their unequal stages of de- velopment rangimr irom the pure sav-j age up to that of enlightened com-j monwealth such as Canada. Australia and New Zealand with their diverse! and sometime, opposing interests. Passing to the German -war scare the lecturer, who evidently believes there is "a niecer in the fence" there noted the extraordinary naval activ- ity of Germany, and her large and Ions; continued appropriations for! aeronautics, as birds of ill omen as j far as Britain's supremacy of the' world is concerned. Supremacy of the upper air means tomorrow the supremacy of the world but while just now Germany leads in that re- gard, she said she was glad to seej that good Canadians like Dr. Bell j and Mr. jMcCurdy has so perfected their acroplar.es as to make three] hundred trips without an accident and! in consequence had been summoned to England with their plans. But the man behind the gun is thr. important thing and so the fair lec- turer glided gracefully into a whole- some little social homily on the con- quest of the upper air of lordship of those moral and spiritual forces without which no man or na- tion can be great. In the course ofj it she gave the saloon some hard i cracks, and did not forget, the church for its unholy indifference in the mat- ter of allowing it to remain. This evening Mrs. Robinson lectures in "The Sweating System of Great Britain." The material for this leV- ture was gathered during a residence in the slums of London and other large cities of the old land. From the Great Live Wire Sale.
