Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - May 26, 1919, Lethbridge, Alberta THE LETHBRHJGE^-tDAlUr 'HBRALD MONDAY, MAY 2�rdO10 ;. j;'' V (By J. �. Livesay) tV'INNIPEO, Man., May 21.-Return-itik to this beleaguered crty after �lKjtt'days absence one ^as prepared lor anythliix, for the red flag, for troops blTOUackin^ on Wain Street, for banks and financial institutions Tvith barred doors, in state of siege, for Joig qneues on Portage Avenue waii-int in the bread and milk lines whose only password was a union card-tor jLoything including riot and bloodshed: for anything, in fact, except precisely the peaceful placid scen^ that met one. On Monday in Toronto^ alarmist stories hSd been published. Tlie soviet was in control; the red flag flew over the city hall; the mayor had turned over the municipal government to the central strike committee vrhich from tho Labor Temple was issuing mandates and decrees to all and sundry; citizens were without food or the means of cooking it, and those who had the hardihood to pursue Iheir daily avocations walked to and from work amid the jeers of the mob. All these things were false, but under them lay a stratum of truth. If the strikers' committee designed the crowd was deuse around the Labor Tempft on James street. Outside the city hall on the benches provided for veterans little groups basked in the hot sun and discussed the situation with animation. Over the city hall Itself flew the Canadian ensign and within Mayor Sray was announcing that law and order would be maintained and t!lie cltjxens would be supplied 'with the necessaries of life; that the functions of the city council there ceased but that tbey were ready to mediate if given the chance; and he added that so far as t^e red or Bolshevik element was concerned, there was the flag and there would it remain. - iMayer In Control .The Mayor is a dark horse. Charles P. Gray, a consiilting electrical engineer, not to be confused with the Alder-^ man of the same name, served two-terms as controller and his victory over ex-Mayor Davidson last\faU was' a ronslderable surprise. He was ' strongly supported by labor. Mayor Gray no doubt would deny that he represents any class or section. Five ' of the fourteen aldermen are straight labor men and these include several tb strike a note of terrorism across | of the dozen or so men who are airect-the Dominion, their purpose was well j jng the strike. ^.\mong those not in served by permitting the free clrcula tlon of these wilg^reports, while they prevented the fair and moderate statement of the fact.s by the Canadian Fr^ss Limited through calling out its telegraphers. M on tie other hand their Intent was to conduct an orderly demonstration of their strength along Jegltimate channels, then they were ill-advised to close down the local daily newspapera on the one hand and Noi! the other to tie-up the regular news rfervico to outside points. sympathy- with the strike are men who say that the Mayor should have taken an energetic stand at the start and in particular should have taken vigorous action to combat the attempted closing down of piiblic utilities by the walk-otit of municipal employees who with no gftevaince of their own were avowedly engaged dnly In s sympathic strike. On the other hand others bold that the Mayor by letting events take their course 1* showing restraint and wisdom; that anything is better than bloodshed and that left alone the strike will come~to an end by a peace-1 able settlement after each tide has ' exhausted its resources. All la Quiet Coming from the cool spring weatb-: er of Elastem Caiiada one' entered tropical summer. Vegetation on the^ prairie is a fortnight tkhead of Ontario ! Citisent Organized and everywhere fields are green with But this is ^ot the popular view of! sprouting wheat Such conditions add- those opposed to the strike. It is  ed to the general holiday effect of) claimed that forty thousand"'citizens the streets. Except foi^. the absence; are now enrolled to defend the city ] of street-cars and horse drawn j against aggressive action and it will vehicles, and that almost every store - : are the larger oafwere ope^ it 1----, i4tW of might have been a typical 24tlJ^ of May, with the crowd waiting for a procession to pass. Good humor and i}Oiet were the prevaiUng characteristics of the crowd who lined the sidewalks of Main street, for the most part union men. There was no flag-llr&Ting, no soap-box haranguing, no etcttemeut of any kind, except that leve Ki&ey or ^Bladder Troubles -ia�------- go hard with the striliers it they at tempt to force the pace. It is argued that the men out are losing in wages a hundred and fifty thcfasand dollars a day; that many who strack in sym- [ pathy would now like to return to' work; but that no settlement^:an be j possible until the idea of the "One Big Union" and all it stands for- J above all, of soviet goyemnnnt- is i beaten once and for all in Canada. It: is insisted by this section of public -opinion that in the final aettlement \ provision must be made agatost future j sympathy strikes tiy employes of pub- ( i lie utilities, and in especial of those ; ^working in the Government Tele-J � phones, the street railway, poweh and ! light plants, and firemen and police. It is unfortonate, they say, that Winnipeg has been picked upon as the testing /� ground for'revolutionary ideas, but ^ Tliis is a question that thousands of now that it has come, the movement , People have asked; and a question that must be fought-to a finish and no i has been answered /or them by tha ground must be given untU victory is 1^31-tical demonstratJons of Gin Pills, complete and jfihaj. strlkera then the strike looSs very like flKsling oiit. and running contrary to all their preachments of the past week. Agalnet Qeneri^l Strike idea "What (jltliens object to^s a boiTy fs the general strike idea," said a wwU known Winnipeg newspaper man who has had close rfniiationft with labor for many years." "Otherwise there C4tnnot be a good d^al of sympathy for the demand for a living wage, The question of the recognition of tho metal workers' council is one that many opponents -of the strike feel should not have been raised as being poor tactical groimd. Merely as a demonstration against the high cost of living, which is on the Intreasa rather than the wane "since the. armistice, the strike would find much support among citizens at large. Living conditions are intolerable for the average wage-earner. But this sympathy has been destroyed because of the character of the movement and the known views of its leaders, disguise them as they may, are distinctly Bolshevist in tendency.' It is regarded as a fight to a finish, and under all,the camouflage of fair words is seen the red flag of revolutioA There Is abun-, danf^evldence to show that a soviet government pure and simple was the flrst design and that less, radical ground was taken so soon as it appeared that the time was not ripe and public opinion hostile. Form some days the strike committee ruled' with high hand from tjie Labor Temple. It was proposed that the well-to-do classes should be cut off from all necessaries of life. These things are on record in the'iuccossive issues of tl{e .strike bulletin. If the situation has taken a more moderate turn it is because the citizens of Winnipeg aa a whole have' asserted themselves and have refused to be made catspaws in this game'of caiHtal and labor. Any-' thing may happen, but it is a safe bet the red flag won't fly over Winnipeg city hall." He added that by a clever campaign extending over several years control of labor in Winnipeg had passed out of the hands of the old and tried trade union leaders into those of younger men. Imbued with advanced doctrines, and to whom the soviet represented-a practicable idea of communist government. "Either.", he said, "Winnipeg Trades and Labor Council must shake oft these influences, or the more con-' CANADMN HILdT' KILLEI^ " . Air'PoVe*.

"The, general '� strike is^a. new venture," it said in its ' lasue of Monday last. "To atrike alone has failed; all must pull together at the tors. The one thing that is clear Is that the old conditions ot life are impossible. Men cannot live on the wage of yesterday, nor are the conditions of yesterday appllcabl* to today. Change there must be and the direction is forward. The men who refuse to recognlze-wganized labor and who refused to pay a wage that they admit \ is reasonable are part of the okl order. We must pass on and leave them to their fate. They will protest and create a crisis, but the final result Is clear. They cannot turn back the wheels of time. They cannot defy organized labor. Their present attempt has necessitated the general strike." No Terrorlam And how Is the general strike to be won-by terrorism?

Ing, "Wlij the strike by doing noth ing"; "The only thing the workers have to do to win this strike U to do nothing. Just eat, aleep, play, love, laugh and look at the sun. There are those irtio are very anxious' for the workers to do something which would provide an excuse for putting the city under martial law. Therefore once mare, do nothing. This is the greatest strike ever put on in Winnipeg and It can be made the greatest victory it i.every striker does absolutely nothing. I Join tlie 'do nothing' club and be a son-of-rest till the strike Is won. It will not last long. You wil! have in Winnipeg, and It can be made,' the' greatest victory In a lawful, orderly and perfectly constitutional way-do nothing." Certainly Winnipeg could not have been more orderly than during the first week of the strike, but can It be won by the methods of King Stork? Can labor stand the cost in loss of wages? In Russia such loss was recouped by levies on capital, but at this lime no such doctrine Is being preached in Winnipeg. The passive strike has tied up certain things, like the street railway, but otherwise has not greatly incommoded the average citizen. On the other hand public opinion outside the immediate ranks of the strikers is hardening against the strike and the tendencyNilready is to resume operation of public utilities and then wait and see what the strikers will do about it. The first step was the resumption of delivery by the biggest departmental stores; ,tbe second the publications, though in condensed form, of a daily newspaper; the third the partial resnmption of telephone ser\'ieer-and now at this date there is talk of starting the . street cars again.
