He visited the central telephone exchange of the districts for the purpose of noting where improvements are most need ed. With regard to the affairs of the government telephone system, lie had found matters in a most satisfactory condition and complimented Miss Mary Sunstrum, government tele- phone agent at Blairmore, on the good' showing of her department.

An address on emigration; to Can- ada from the Canadian trade union- ist's point of view was delivered to members of Edinburgh and District Trades Council last night in the Can- on'gate Institute by Mr. W. R. Trot- ter, to whom the Trades and Labor Congress of Canada has delegated the task of showing to the people in the Motherland the view taken by organ- ized labor in Canada of wholesale emigration to the -Dominion. Mr Walter Bell presided. a young country, he said industrial centres ;there, were few and far be tween. Consequently it was ridicu- lous to suggest that ihere was work for all artisans. Proceeding, he re viewed the work of the Canadian Man- ufacturers' Association, the members of which, he -said, were business men jvho believed that thr re ought to b? at least four men for every job in the country. He asserted that, the. man -.vho would ship people irom one side of the earth; to the other "and leave them- sliding." were criminals. (Ap plause.)

The Canadian Government, he said had a big territory to fill up, and i seeking for population they asked for three classes of and farm workers, railway navvies, and domestic servants. These classes had been asked for right along the line. Trie Government had1 never asked for anything else but certain people were interested in having other classes brought into the country. They would like to have four men for each job in the mechanical crafts ;and they had produced such a state of aftairs that every municipality in Canada had a large unemployment problem on its hands, and the associated charities were doling out relief week by week. So far as the rrteclianical trades various emigration societies in thi country as "simp'y abominable. These charitable and religious socie ties had put up the stiffest figh against the Governm iit's legislatio on this subject. He severely criticised the emigra tion scheme of General Booth, -whose organization he described as the Em- igration Army. Salvation, he said, being now a side issue.
