Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - November 9, 1912, Lethbridge, Alberta TJm LFTITBRTDGF DAILY HERALD Hntiu'rtny, Novcm!>cr!), 1012 em Eighth Standing of Candidates | -Nine in the Lead Safely Passing Over the Eighth Hurdle - Field G)ming Up Strong - Keep Up Your Good Work-The Prizes Are Worth Your Best Efforts Nine of the candidates in ttie competition have voted up to tlie limit, �but not the same ones as the last time-that Is, not ail of them. Seven candidates today hoid their oid places fn the tlrst division, two have come up from the rear and two of the leadere have allowed their vote to drop back. For Tuesday the limit of 25,000 over the high vote of today will be enforced. After that time candidates may vote as they please, so'iong as they keep within reason. None of the contestants have coniplained in regard 'to the restriction, but we would rather plaae the contest-the voting part at least-in the hands of the candidates themselves. With a sort of free-for-all going, it will likely be a little more intei-esting to the public, as well as add excitement for the candidates. Mr. Ira C. Fletcher, while on a business trip to Lethbridge yesterday, called at the contest oHice and deposited enough votes to place Mrs. Fletcher's name among the leaders. Jlr. Fletcher said he enjoyed the contest work immensely; that it was a real vacation from regular business cares. It pays to be a smiling candidate. ^ .Jiliaa Jean B. Patterson, after trailing the leaders for some time, votes herself.-to the front. Miss Patterson is regularly employed and really does 'hot have much time to solicit subscriptions. When she goes after the busl-njesi, 'though, she makes every minute count; She is conducting what might ; be called a ecientiHc campaign-making no false motions. � ' 'Mr., Gerald Dulmage, the new candidate from Bow Island, is certainly making a fine campaign, when it is considered that he has been in the con- T test leas than a week. Look out for Gerald. Bow Island has a way of '.doing things In a wholesale way. The candidates holding first place twice in succession are Jliss Eva Hut- ' ton,''Mrs. W. Hoult, Mr. W. M. Marshall, Mrs. N. C. Stibbs, Miss Iiouise Scott and Miss Thelnia Vegan. Gaina were made since last voting day by Miss Vivian Barbor, J. A. ,'Bldault, Jlr. C. L. Ledingham (who doubled his previous score) Miss Pearl Oleon, Miss Agnes Pelletier, John R. ReviU and Miss Flora Wearmodth. While candidates may solicit subscriptions any place they like outside of their own town or locality, it scarcely ever pays to take the time to go to fa town where another candidate is nuiking good progress. People are just clannish enough to hold their subscriptions for the home candidate- and it is right that they should. A great deal of the circulation zone of the Herald is still a fertile field. And it always pays to go over your territory the second and even the third time. You will probably say to yourself that Mr. So-and-So wouldn't take the paper on a bet-^and as for paying for it, why that is out of the question. But-you haven't given Mr. So-and-So chance to make good-you haven't asked I himffor, a subscription. Try a few of these you-think-they-won't subscribe �.Tieople. You might get many two and three year subscriptions that you would have an attack of heart failure-almost. But whatever you do-don't slacken the fa*t pace you are now going. This Is not a plaything affailr-It Is a newspaper contest It will take work to win one of the big prizes-and there 1b no way to win except through getting subscriptions.

Askwith ('Montreal Witness.) Sir George Askwith, B, C. B., chief ef the conciliation depa^-ttnent of the British Board of Trade, who addressed the Canadian Club yesterday, maintained that in all the strikes that had taken place recently in Great Britain, tliere had been little in the way of breach of agreement on the part of the |nen. Breach of Industrial Agreements The particular phase of labor dlini-cultles thait be proposed to deal with, eaid the speaker, was that of strikes and lock-outs of recent occurrence in Great Dritaln. 'My opinion, founded upon experience and much evidence. Is,' ho aald, 'that, taking it aa a whole, industrial agreements, upon which the relatiou's of labor and capital depend, are generally kept. One hears a great deal ot strikes and lockouts taking place because ot the breach of agreements. At the present time one of the matters which has been referred to the industrial council thirty or forty years, whose men are disciplined, and whose leaders have been educated as to how to govern men and how to make agreements In their trades, repudiate entirely the idea tliat they ever break an agreement. They have dared the employers to bring up an Instance ot any agreement to which they have ever set their hands having been broken, and the employers have agreed that when, those union leaders put their lianda to a document, although that agreement may be diSlcult to arrive at, In spite of all dlfflcultieB or circumstances it has been kept.' In speaking upon 'Some Labor Questions,' Sir George Askwith said that the suggestions for cures ot these problems were as numerous as the sands of the seashore, but he contended that settlements by armed force or by law were impracticable, and that even if laws were onaottd the dlfliculty was how to enforce them,. because it was just as impos-Bible to make hundreds of thousands of workers obey a law us to compel a nation to take a course to which It objected. That there were sligiit exceptions to this rule in the case of smaller of which I have the honor to chairman, is the question ot the breach of industrial agreements, iiiid how best these can be enforced; and It has been reniarkable In the evidence that has been faken how great linldn after union has come up through its loaders - and has put before uis what occurs in the ordinary �way between capital and labor, but of which you never hear in the newspapers. -That-is, they continue to exist and to carry on their work by means of agreements, and those agreements are kept. The oid unions which have been in existence for i unions or unions which grew rapidly whose leaders were naw and unable to control their' men, was admitted by the speaker, who held, however, that these cases wore outside the general rule. He alao doubted the sometimes repeated assertion that broaches always occurred on the side oC the men, pointing out that in their case greater publicity was given to the tuct, while with the individual employer who went back upon his agreement the tact did not ueceasarlly come to the public notice. he termination ot an 1 ^jj, ^,,3 , ^ ,^ Mr. Sidney T.
