Tho first meeting of the delegates of the United Mine Workers' Association was held in the Co-oporativo hall yesterday afternoon. After the credentials of all tho delegates present had been inspected by tho committee detailed for thnt duty, District President F. II. Sherman addressed the mooting. Regarding a press dispatch that had appeared in several newspapers as coming from miners in Hegina. to-ferring to next Monday as "Black Monday," aod saying that there would likely be a strlko declared after tho present Joint, convention. Mr. Sherman was very emphatic in declaring that this report was most re dlculous, and it appeared to him to be only an attempt to prejudice tho public, through tho press, agalnsttho minors. Ho could not see no reason for tho statement that tho mines would like- uren were promised tho support members of the government. Regarding tho matter of an eight hour day, tho association was in receipt of a lettor from Attorney General Cross, saying thnt tho premier had expressed' himself as being in favor of this, and promising the introduction of such a bill. This bill was, however, withdrawn, and tho miners would now be compel! xl to wait another year at least, and this in spite of the .net that tho petition was signed by minors, farmers and artisans of all kinds. In fnrt it wns only the mine-owners ami operators that did not sign it. I Mr. Sherman then asked thnt during discussions tho delegates t-ofrnin from anything savoring of personal attacks, and keep in mini) tho fttct that upon their shoulders rested u great deal of responsibility, ns if no agreement wero renched by April 1st a tlu-up of all the coal mines would likely follow, withdinastrous results. He then closed, his remarks with the request that Mr. I'. Patterson, tho incmhor of {.he International board, who with Delegates Stanley of Itankhead and Drooks of Loth  bridge, who had been appointed a committee to wait on the govern - of | miners had known of their intontion in lime, and in future they must see to it,that thoir work was done more thoroughly. Mr. Pottorson also occupied the platform lor some time, and told of tho strong fight thnt bad been put up for tho semi-weekly pny-duy. Delegate McNnbb sniil that the n.lnors hud gained absolutely noth -ing as a result of thoir trip to Kd-monton, and ho thought thnt the sooner they got into polities for themselves tho better it would be for them. Mo also stated that the govern -ment hud told thorn that if the miners could produce the same nrgu  ments they had used as sworn evidence, there could bo no possible doubt of the passing of 'tho billno.xt session. They hnd Ihhmi promised nn investigation immediately too present scs  sion closed. ly be liod up after the present con- ment at Edmooton and present their tract expires on April 1st. Tho dol- \ memorial, give their report egatos present had not coma to tho conference with any such intention. Speaking on the system of paying wages at present in vogue, Mr. Sherman stated that tho general public were not awaro of the intricacies of � this system, which is by piece work. As it stands at present there are In response to this request Mr. Patterson stated that the committee had met in I'algary. and pro  ceudod to Edmonton whoro thoy had been treated with tho greatest of courtesy. They had mot many mem-I bers with whom they had talkod tho matter over, and wero introduced to "Trevcntics" will promptly check a cold or the Orippo when taken early or at tho "sneozo" stngo.

Some people hud called tho mine-, a very radical set of men. If thesn same pcoplo had to do this work thi miners do, live in the same shacks that miners have to, and deal at company or semi-company stores as the minors aro required to do, then thoy would probably alter their opinions a trifle, and decldo that tho miners were nut so bad aftor all. Mr. Sherman also stated tbat the minors were.,vory much disappointod at the actioo of tho govorniuent lu turning down tho l>gislation promised them. When at their last meet  ing in Edmonton it had beon docided to petition the government for legislation, they had only asked for what tho British Columbian miners were already enjoying, and he still failed to soo why such great dis -crimination was shown the mUners on the cast and tboso on the west of definite until aftor tho investigation which had boon promised by tho government to the operators, as the government thought that it would not be fair to make any move without such investigation. It was on this account thnt the oight-hour bill wus withdrawn. Regarding this bill, it was stated that whilo nobody in tho house was opposed to it, tho government did not think it would be wise to introduce it from the floor at tho present time. It would no doubt be passed at tho next session. Regarding tho clnuso in respect to check-weighmen they had given no answer, but thoy had looked favorably on the powdor question, and had promiHod to carefully consider the run of tho.mlno clnuso. As to tho somi-weekly puyniont clause, they hud stated that they did not want to copy the British Coluuibiu laws, they vantod to make the laws lor Alberta tHdmsolves. Delegate Oroohs also touched light ly on the oight-hour bill. Ho said that there was no doubt it was introduced before Its time. The only hope for the miners was to have representation in the house When the operators had gone � to Edmonton the Rockies. ,Laet yoar they had beon informed that the time was not yot ripe lor the bill had been withdrawn. This legislation, but this year their meas would nut taava been the case if tho DR. DEVEBER'S SPEECH On a Bill Affecting Labcr Before the Senate. In tho donate in tho Senate on Senator McMullen's bill to provont aliens directing the affairs of Can adinn lubor orgaaizations, Hon. Senator DoVeber spoko as follows: 'I should like to preface tho very ,ew remarks I intend to make on tho subject with a statement to tho effect that, could I doom it advisable, or could I see my wuy clear to support tho Bill of tho hon. gontlcimin from Wellington, I would l>e a very happy man, indood. Thero is something in it that appeals to ma. It contains a sentiment and expresses an idea that should appeal to tho patriotism of evory Canadian, that Is, that nil bodies--! would go farther than the hon. gontloman from Wellington-thnt all bodies, corpor -uto or incorporuto, union or nonunion, should bo thoroughly Canadian, a self-governing body thatwould not have to go outside of the Dominion for advice. But thero aro times whon sontimont must glvo way to calm reflection. Theeo aro occasions whon patriotism even must givo placo to what may bo for the common good. Whilst � agreo with tho principle of the Hi,I, I must opposo it becuuso 1 think it is inopportune. Wo have in Canada, to-doy agroat many mutual benefit societies.' Thoy nre not exactly the" same as unions, but very similar. When they were stnrtcd in Canada, they originated chiefly from bodies in tho United Stutes. As they grew In .wealth and importance, it became clear to them thut it would bo advnntngoous to them to be self-governing in Canada, and have Canadian Jurisdiction. Ainlcnblo arrangements wero made. There whs not a discordant note, and the funds Itere distributed fairly, j Sow if this had beon dono by logis- | lution. by " some drastic measure, would there not have been some din-coriliiiit note? I leel sure therewould I think thut tho laboring clnsses hmo brains as well as wo havo our-b.'Ivps and It woi.l I soon come to them thut it would 1ms more aav�n-tagcous to be self-governing than to ho govcrnod from abroad, and I do not think that tho time is very far distant whon foroign Interference will be no longer tolerated. Tho strike game is a very peculiar oao, I have pluyod a good many kind of games, and havo como across'a good many, but this is tho only ono I have seen where nobody wins and everybody loses. Tho capitalist loses tho interest nn tne capital invested and which it should have earned. The labourer loses tho wages ho should have earned. Tho people*of the community in which tho industry is sit-uatod lose that part of the fwages which would have been ex ponded in that town, and tho general public of tho provinces of Alberta and Sas. kntchewun, who rolled upon the mines ol Lothbridge for their coal supply, wero, owing to tho strlko in those mines, put to great Inconvenience and in many cases I believo lives have been seriously endangorod. Tho question Is how to put a stop to thoso strikes. Now, coming from' a town whore this strike occurred and having experienced a strike thoro onro boforo, t havo probably taken us much interest in the matter as anybody in Canada. I havo studied the question very fully and havecomo to the conclusion that thero is only ono possiblo wuy to stop strikes, and thut is by compulsory aebitratlon and Incorporation of tho unions. 1 miuht nay thnt during last summer I h avo ondoavored in a qulot way to bring capital and labour togoth-cr, to seo if it wero uot possiblo for them to* moot upon a common ground and unite in an cflort to hav� laws placed upon tho statute book that would bo not only a simple solution of the question but provide a tribunal that would givo a Just, equitable and fair decision on every question arising botwoon tho labourer and his employer, and then put a stop to sucn strikes forovor. I do not foel that I could give Inform*  tion on that subject at the present time. Tho conversations that took placo botvoen mysolf and othors wero somewhat of a\somi-prlvnto and personal nature, and for. tho present I First Wedding Present -not a trinket, but the most necessary article in the new home-a bag of purito FLOUR Choicest Bread Flour in the world. Milled by the latest improved process from the finest Western Canada Hard Wheat Makes Best Dread With Least Trouble do not foel that I should put thorn before the house, but I can say that 1 havo been more than pleated with tho advance I have made, and if nothing turns up to provont it, _ I think I see my way clear to legis  lation that will put a stop to thoso strikes. Womust remember that tho matter of presenting strikes by legislation does not lie in Ottawa; it is a purely provincial matter. There Is a BilT before tho ITouse of Commons at present, introduced by Mr. Lcmloux, that goes as far as this purlininont can go in the mattor. The rest must be purely provincial. What I fear about this bill introduced by my hon. friend- from Wellington, is that it may create Bufiieiont irritation to render all tho efforts I have made during the past summer negative.
