H. Sherman, of Fernic, on the causes and present condition of tho strike of the Lethbridgo coal miners. Mr. Sherman proved himself to Le an able speaker, and thoroughly conversant with the question whicii is tho subject of so much conversation on our streets nt the present lime. Robt. A'imiiuins was unanimously voted to the chair, und, after ex-pUiining very conci.seiy tho object of Ihe meeting, introduced Mr. Sherman. Mr. Shermaii started from the t'irth of unionism in the Canadian mining canqiK. Ho stated that organization had commenced In Canada about three years ago, and since that liiue had been slowly but steadily Increasing. It was the object of the IJ. M. W .V. to have every cool mining camp in Canada organized^ The .siMJaker then took up the local situation. Soiiio jieople objected to unionism coming iiito their midst, and many were of the opinion that the t^unadian unions were governed entirely by tho.so of the United States. This, the speaker assured, was not the ca.se. Although tho Canadian unions are aUiliated with the IT. M. W. A. of A., they had their own ofllcers. and the organization was Canadian. The niincrs of Leth-hridge wero unanimous in their decision to organize, and after ui'gani-zation, the.v endeavored to I'lSaeh tho ob.iect desired, viz., to receive wages and working conditions similar to tho,so prevalent in other mining camps In this countr.y. A committee composed of miners mot the coal managers, but wore, he claimed, poorly treated. Mr. .Sherman road a letter to P. L. Naismith, laying forth the case of the miners, but said that to this letter, he received no reply. Shortly after the writing of this letter a mass meeting was called, and, after the questions had been discussed thorouglily, the men unanimously resolved to suspend operations until a satisfactory' agreement could be reached. In the speaker's mind, this fact alone was sufficient proof of conditions unbearable. Mr. Sherman then read the agree-inont that the emplo.vors refiiso to sign, and explained fully the meaning and necessit.v of each, clause. The two leading requests wore (1) that tho men in tho mines should work eight hours a di\,v. and (2) that ihoy .should be paid for the coal Mr. Sherman put forth a forcible^ argument in favor of tho eight-hour day for tho inineis hero. He drew attention to tho fact that, on account of the absence of explosive ga.ses in the Lethbridgo mines, the ventilation of the pits was not properly looked after. Tho men were compelled to breathe gases which, although not exjilosive, wore very injurious, consequentl.v the health was impaired. In regard to tho second principal cause of complaint, he .said that the minors wero not allowed for any nut coal or slack which wont through the screen, and, as a result, the.v were doing this work without remuneration. The men wore willing to allow 250 pounds per ton for slack, whereas under present conditions the.v were allowed about 80 per cent, of what tho.y dug. The speaker differed with regard to tho company's statement that under changed circumstances they could not operate at a profit, nnd was quite willing to make changes in the requests, providing the operators would show him that they wero right. Mr. Sherman then called tho attention of the audience to tho political strength ot the labor men, and showed the advisability ot forwarding the cause of labor through the ballot box. _Uo .said: "Strikes will not take place when men get educated into settling labor difllculties by legislation, instead of through the wiedium. of strikes. The immense power placed in the hands ot the labor man would shut out conditions that at present exi.st at Loth-bridge, " ^ . . In closing. Air, Sherman stated that tho day has passed when large e-orporations could import foreigners to lower the wages of the English-spooking people. He mentioned cases of Japanese and Chinese labor being imported, but this obstacle was easily overcome. The problem was solved by admitting these men mto the V M. W, of A, for the first time in tho history of tho organization. At the close of Air. Sherman s oble discourse, the chairman allowed those present tho privilege of asking any questions, but as no querici were forthcoming, tho meeting was dismissed, ' KNOCKERr~One wiio does not, andv will not,ji iKoiit "Me too" to every plausible proposition,; yet';}ionr;i cstly confesses tliat Sage's picture enlargements, and framing beat the band.
