Doracy, Ph.D., LL.D., in Chicago Tribune months have elapsjtl since Jlr. Beeby, minister for labor, f introduced the Industrial arbitration if bill before the South Wales parliament and, on its second reading, delivered 111 the legislative assemDly a speech ii. favor or that bill, the gist or which I hiivi) presented. f The passage of the bill, in the lower house, almost without was a foregone conclusion. It '.van equally cetraln .that the hill .ot-.d meet with rough usage in the upper tory of Australian legislation con- cerning industrial disputes. "Red Rag" Socialists TO appreciate the position better and to get the significance of this po- litical address by one of the strongest mun In the government; we must re- member that in the so-called labor party of New South Wales there ex- ists a strong and growing section which can hardly be characterized as Socialistic, using that ter min its best sense. Here they cull .them "red rag" Socialistic, using that term in Its best avowed anarchists, but that there is an anarchistic element iu their midst no one questions. We must revise our idea of an an- archist. These men are quite honest in their conceptions of their ideal which, from our point of view, is quite destructive of society. They think it is society's only road to sal- house or legislative council. The coun-l vation from evils and oppression. Few cil hw finally ilnished hacking at the and it is now ready for consider- ation at a joint session. Within tlie last w-ack, Mr. Beeby de- fended his bill, in a lengthy speech in the country, and set forth the general .unit of the labor government.

At present this section of the community thinks that the labor government moves too slow- ly. McGowan's ministry seems as con- servative to them as the Liberal op- motion does to the official labor The net result is that the labor min- istry finds Itself a sort of midway party. On the one side is the so- called liberal party, today the oppo- sition, consisting of the old-fashioned law and order crowd, the whole con- servative the employers of labor, the capitalistic class. La.bor's tenure of office is so precarious that, as .Mr. McGowan remarked the other night, for several months it another: labor member had fallen over a ban- _ nistcr the labor party could not have commanded a have been down and out.

They can literally paraly.ze the state. They have done so twice and frequently threatened to do it again. This is the class which SI r. Beeby last June, in his second reading speech, frankly declared he could not coerce. Mr. Beeby said he wished at the outset to remove the impression that his government hud at any time at- tempted to .foment or encourage indus- trial strife. On-the contrary, they have made every effort to prevent a trouble- some uprising and to provide machin- ery which would settle disputes with- out indicting injury on the public at large. That has been his policy. He only regretted that during the last few days his scheme for industrial arbitra- tion had not been given a friendly re- ception in the upper house. Similar Scheme in England England ha-s been involved in indus- trial troubles for more than 20 years. Many of these troubles have brought her to the verge of civil war. But the most astonishing thing was that in the English parliament a scheme'had just been discussed in many respects similar to the one we are trying to in- augurate In Australia, i.e., that these matters shall not be left to arbitrary finding cut by individuals, but that tlie public interest shall be conserved by conciliation and arbitration. The council has overlooked the fact that up to 1S9S industrial legislation had not provided for preference to unionists. It was included in the 1908 bill on the strength of representations made by the labor parly, then the opposition. The fact that the legisla- tive council has now refused any form of preference was a direct challenge to Unionists and would have a (lis- astrous effect. The clause, as origin- ally drawn In the bill, iu no way cre- ated compulsory preference, and Its only new feature aimed to lay down Whooping Ccmgh SPASMODIC CROUP ASTHMA COUGHS BRONCHITIS CATARRH COLDS A simple, catuand ctlcctivc treatment for hlal trouMw, jxvoiJinjl drucr- Vipn-jietl Crc torsthop.i.-ovysn-.soMVhooplnflCouHhrindre pasmodic Croup r.loncc.

It was provided that preference should be allowed only in ease of open unions, unions.which substantially represent an industry, but1 that, it -should be granted in all cases where the court or the board believed it necessary in or- der to secure industrial peace or the enforcement of an award. In each of these three provisions absolute dis- cretion is given. Beeby's Argument for. His Bill "I said Mr. Beeby, "that the gentlemen responsible for the delimit- ation of these provisions overlook the fact that the boards and courtJi had In the past exercised discretion, and that, while they had granted preference to unionists in llii cases, they had re- fused It in as many cases. This power of discretion was continued in the bill, the only difference being that defined principles were laid down for guiding boards and the court. This was done at the instigation o fthe judge of the industrial court, who had again and again asserted that parliament should, in an important matter of this Kind, establish some principle upon which the court might act. "In connection with the penalty clause, the bill aims not to weaken the enforcement of tlie act, but to strengthen it, providing an effective method for collecting fines. Under the present system the only alterna-; live is imprisonment. Tlie bill pro-! poses that where men openly and I flagrantly defy the orders of the court they repeat certain offences! after an Injunction has been filed against are liable to trial for a misdemeanor. Surely It needs little to convince those who have fol- lowed the matter closely that a system which "makes Imprisonment an alter-j native for On.1 payment of a fine is j and it has proved quite in-j effective. j Third Important Point "Tho third important measure which the council seeks to remove from tho bill provides (hat. subject to certain conditions, the unions can withdraw their registration. Over 90 per cent, of tho trade unions of the stale have! accepted the principle of industrial ar-j bitratfon and have worked readily un- der It. To those not yet convinced of the efficiency of tho system a number of inducements are offered. They are ulso threatened with being left out in the cold if they refuse. This proposal s made they have discovered hat. n section of the trade unions cnn- mt ho coerced into accepting arbi- riition. With them the- process for a certain time must bo a matter of edu- cation. "Ay 1 have con tended all through lias failed with certain classes of labd and that no law can compel large bod ies of me'u to accept a system they think is useless to them. I hav no doubt, however, tbat the conditions offering under the bill, and threatened cancellations of certain unions, will in duce them to give the system a fail trial. "I am still hopeful -that the councl vyill realize, as has been realised ii New Zealand, that some option of registration necessary. If some ser- ious portions of the union does not register under the act, or withdraws registration, then we must face a re- peal of the whole system. It is quite clear that the success of an experi- ment of this kind depends on the atti- tude of the workers, who by Its pas- sage would bo deprived, either volun- tarily or by compulsion, of the right to itrike. Urgent Need of Solution "We have only to look abroad to see tlie necessity of having effective ma- chinery to deal with industrial .trou- bles. The recent trouble in Queens- laud occurred under a liberal govern- ment, and the terrible loss which the country suffered arose from the fact that no quick and cheap machinery ex- isted for enquiry into disputes. The experience through which, England ii ow passing, for which no labor gov- ernment can be held responsible, showy the wisdom of maintaining wisely conceived machinery. The strike is significant of a general await- ening of workers throughout the world and their demands for a better share of the wealth produced. Thus arbitration becomes the most important question that society has to face. Communities that persist, in the old doctrine of allowing strikes to settle themselves are on the verge of civil war. It is strange that at this time, notwithstanding industrial laws. we have industrial strife in thi-j com- munity. It Is nothing In comparison to the horrors of strikes in other countries where no attempts have been made to deal with the problem." Council Shows Partisanship Members of the council have always claimed that fhcy are of no party, and this controversy, wt- have to accept) the fact that compulsory arbitration Dr. Morse's Indian Root Pills arc made according to a formula in use nearly a century ago among the Indians', and learned from them by Dr. .Morse. Though repeated at- tempts have been made, by physi- cians and chemists, it has been found to improve the formula or the pills. Dr. Morse's Indian Root Pills are a household remedy through- out the world for Constipation and nil Kidney and IJvcr troubles. They act nromptly and effectively, and Cleansa tKe are prepared to consider measures on their merits; but their action in the present act can only be explained by partisanship of the worst kind. AVhat the liberal party sent along to tlie council they passed without demur. What the labor party sent, although it Included some provisions endorsed by tiie liberals, was turned down with practically no serious discussion. If the measure submitted by the gov- ernment is not passed substantially in tho form In which it left the legisla- tive assembly, Beeby thinks it ....._.M ivouid be best to repeal the existing law and let the country have what Washington, Nov. 20.
