Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - May 2, 1907, Lethbridge, Alberta 0. ft. AUSTIN, Elltar art MiM|tr. f. JOfeDAN, Sapl. �t J�b Dtpirtattt SUBSCRIPTION: In Advanoi* Otherwise 1.30 a year ta.00 a year ADVERTISING; Par Month 1.00 Par Inch A Good Law given an .education at the expense of tho people of Toronto. If ho were to win a Rhodes scholarship or somo other educational distinction In tho F � future he would And that Toronto would not go into half the ecstaclcs it did when he von the foot race. Why shouldn't success along Intellec* tunl lines be honored as much as success 1n athletics? Surely H is of more lasting benefit? LongDOAT ought to get on a race with Chief BlgCAXOE, of Oeorglna Island, Ont, It Im proposed that a college should be started at Cardston. We propose at once that David Hearst Elton be made professor of Oratory. Hon, Mr. Cushlng's announcement at Fernie that the Alberta Govern -roent would introduce an eight hour law for minors nt the next session of the Alberta Legislature did much to clear the air in the mining enmps of the south and prolmbly v4U bo the strongest furtor In bringing about a setilenioirt of the trouble, which for a time promised to stop the wheels of transportation and industry and cripple business conditions in the west. Tho declaration by the government was not n bribe to get the men hack to work, for tho Intention an along has been to put such a law in operation and one of the duties of the com* mission, which the legislature nt its last session gave authority to he organised, was to investigate the working conditions in tho mines, especially In regard to this very question of hours. Mr. Cushing'fl timely visit to Kernle* however brought about an earlier announcement of the govern - mont's policy. One of the matter* thnt hns l>cen worrying tho Alberta miners has Iwn the eight hour day question. Across tho western boundary of the province in the mines of British Columbia an eight hour law exist* and naturally tho miners on this side have been discontented over tho absence of similar conditions In Albert*. The strike fever has l�cen tormented by this longing for shorter hours. The Alberta government had prac -tlcally decided on nn eight hour law and. when Mr. Cushing saw that the miners were anxious to know his mind on the matter, he with the consent of the Premier told them tho course the government was going to pursue and naturally the men were delighted and a good deal of tho animosity existing towards governments and corporations was removed with the result, we are confident, that the men vill.be more willing to come .to terms with the operators. An eight hour day Is not popular amongst the operators but legislat -ion affecting tho Industrial world is always sure to displease one side or the other, and tho great mass of the people are left to decide for themselves whether tho legislation is in the public interest or not. From our standpoint an eight hour day for tho miners is in the public interest as well as a great benefit to tho men. In the public interest because it will, or should settle ono of the knottiest points of conflict between the operators and their em  pJoyces and thus assist very greatly to prevent strikes. That ono result would satisfy tho mass of the people and make business conditions in coal mining centres far more satisfactory and stable. There Is no doubt that the law will benefit tho men. More than eight hours work underground is a monace to tho health of thoie who follow this vocation. It makes them discontented. It juts them in the humor to condemn capital and follow the teachings of anarchism. Surely if legislation will give tentment and happiness to these j>eo-ple the public will endorse it. And why should tho miners nothuvo shorter hours as well as men who are working above ground. No matter what sort of labor a man has to do where sun nod light abound. It is preferable to a long day's labor underground. With nn eight hour day common on top of the earth what roason is there against itbeing adopt-ed for tho bene51 of tho men beneath? Wo believe the Alberta govermn&nl will win the approbation of all classes in Its decision to grant the minors of this province nn eight hour day. The Herald u satisfied at any rate and the measure will receive our whole-hearted support. John Eakin is the sort of citizen . to take trips out of tho city. Ho Is! a booster from tho drop of the hat and that Interview ho gave a Toronto paper Is worth a good deal of money that might have been spent on publicity. All our citizens should make It a point to talk up his city to the outsiders. Barclay's,, to Prebendary Carlle,-Hon. Chief Hoc, Headquarters* Marble Arch, W.
