Mr. Flett in a Ulk wWh the Herald said labor v-as very well organised in the west. Speaking ot, liCthbridge he considered'U had a big future before it. It was surrounded by a big area of country, and should be a point of supply for not only this part of Al-lierta, but also British Columbia, where tho demand for foodstuffs was continually on the increase. Of course ho remarked tlus future of Lethbridge depended upon the' enorgy of the people and the ability of the: people to lay hold of the opportunities that where at their doors. Tho ilbrald asked Mr.. Flett to make li statement about the labor troubles at present in extstenco .n the' west. This: is what hesa'.d: "The mistake made by the mino managers is in fighting the organiZr; ations of labor. Those unions have coma to slay.
