MAY 19151 _._i__:_i_ LETHBRIDGE, ALBERTA. PAGE SEVEN  ALEX. SUSNAR SAYS HE WOULOBEGIAO TO GO BACK 10 SERBIA BUT lis KING MOT NOT BE VERY ANXIOUS Dochires Dictatorship of Labor Will Come in The Future Tlif O. C. IT, whltli was obBCurcd in (lailiHosR, on Kriday nighl, was l)r(jiiKlU to I'no llghl at diiy on Sunday iiricnjoon a(, (lie mitisra' library, when Alex. Susnar expounded on the Kiimt'. "We piopoHO." he said, "t.i or-aa (o induslo' Itistccd of (ladcs. Crafl industry organi7,cd as lo � rati would strike as to Riaft. With Ihi; O. H. V. when one industry strikes all will strike." The jnoralily n{ ( laft unionism was a great immorrtllty. II cannot strike because of contracts. �\Vlicn one craft wag on strike the oth-crti have been scabbing." Ill the last strik?, Mr. Susuar In-fcirnu'il his hearer.s, they wpre told tliat the inlornatioiial .sctil tliom lot.s of money. Tliey did. b\U at llie same limu the minors were at work on the fiiher side and wllli I lie monfty the internationa) sent million.s of tons of nnal lo olTscU the money. \Yhen hp uenl down to Pennsylvania he found that the strike in Alberta was lost bo-fciro It had bogun.

B. V. The postal employees in their last strike had their propositions tluown down by the government, but when 1!ie Rovernmont thought there would bo a aympathetic .slrilic, wJlh the miners ready to strike, they quickly sot-tied the matter. The mii^rs anJ the (itliors who threatened to strike were liroaking the policy and the constitution of the International, but that did not matter a d-------. Dlctatorihip of Labor The 0. li. U. was, industrial and not craft union, which was that If oiie Industry went on strike all the others would. That ffaa the speaker's Idea of industrial union. For Mr.Gompei^, Mv. Susnar had no use. Gompers, according to Uini, was advising against nolslievism because he was eoiicernetl tiiat the eight or ten millions who wore starving for want of bread would tike fhe bull by'the horns, expel the 1 .ipitalists. 1-ake control, and produce for use and not for profit. He had said tiial Bolshevism was dictatorship by the proletariat. "The dictatorship of labor. I believe, will come as soon as working nien get enough intelligence to take everything into their hands, railways, mines and waterpowers. When unemployed every man could not he less than a criminal was Mr, Husnar's opinion. There may bo 77 millions of police but there cannot but lievcriminals if there is unemployment. He referred sarcastically to Armour's saying that ths working men should djsire lo have joy out of lite. But how could they have it under the pres-nt system when they had lo live In shacks and wear patched up clothes. The present laws were made all around property. The working man had no proprirt.v. His life ' was his properly but this property was taken away from him when he was drafted into the army. The government" were not anxious that the Slavs, whom they regarded as O------------------------� the Hllen enemy, should go back to their own rountrlos because they were afraid they would upset the governments there, and the five hundred niii-Hoiis that were owing the Allies would not be paid. The Slavs were only too ready (o go. He himself would go if he had the price of a ticket, btit then King Peter of Serbia would not be anxious to see hini. l''or the rest. Mr. Su.snar launched out against capilallsts. real estatn men, lawyers, and such like, who were not protlucing tor use but for profit, When, with the O. B. 1". the workers got control of overythiiig everyone will have to produce for use.
