While "at "Spokane he was in charge of the exhibit, which was placed avthe Interstate Fair Grounds some three miles -from the center of the city, and frorrj the building where the Congress was held.

Gity Council Are the Recipients rA dozen of the business men who took.up the matter, of the removal of engine crews attended the meeting held last night and appointed A. H- McKeown and E. A. Cunningham a commrttee to draft a letter to Gener- al Superintendent Price of the C.P. thanking him in the warmest, terms for coming to Lethbridge and giving the business men an opportun- ity to him, and for the position taken by him and the company he cancelling the order that made the changes complained of. A resolution was also passed thanking the mayor and city council for their prompt assistance in. the matter by calling a special meeting to hear tho to called the strikers to "th'e colors in tbeir capacity as reservists. The strikers-declare they will not-respond, holding" that the law providing for military organization did not" intend to- make it impossible for-train men to protest against conditions which they consider unfair. .The reservists who failed to report for duty may b-e declared deserters and. dealt with accordingly. Following the strike -in Northern Railway yesterday, the central state committee of the National.' -Railway decided to out every employee of the private and 'state owned" roads. The employees of. the Western Rail- way, who also have grievances de- cided to go out last night. Their ex- ample, was followed this morning by- the trainmen of thV Eastern" Tairwav who voted to quit work at noon, and by the men' of the Paris, Lyons Mediterranean "lines who voted -to quit this evening. The leaders. de- clare that the strike will be general .throughout France- by tomorrow, when no. single train will be mo- tion "at any. point-in the -Republic: As soon as-possible further official decrees calling to. the .colors' evexv railroad' employee- in France will be issued. The officials of the Northern' Rail- way have issued a statement .tliat the wages of the employees were'1' ed franks during the "year 1909-1910, and that, the increased cost of operation and- the-increased bur- dens imposed by parliament-.-made "it impossible to meet the demands of the men. Extensive Strike The great railway lines arc the Eastern, the Belt'line, the Northern, the Central, the Paris, Lyons and Mediterranean, and the Western. The total trackage is near- ly miles and some em- p'loyees will be involved in a 'general strike. Move For General Strike Paris, by the effectiveness -of the strike employees on the' Northern and Western Rail- ways and the extension of the move- ment today on the Eastern road and the Paris, Lyons and Mediterranean lines, the leaders of the French work- ingmen generally threaten a gigantic move to paralyze the activity whole country. The electricians and. other employees of the omnibus, me- tropolitan and subway transportation lines of this city, considered .todav the advisability of seizing this favor- able opportunity to launch amove" for redress of long standing grievanc- es. The situation throughout- the Re-, public is regarded as grave. Food Supply Affected The government is seriously con- cerned over the matter of fqjjd sup- ply. President Fallieres hurriedly re- turned from his estate Sn the south today and conferred with the minis- ters." The problem of food looms .ser- iously. Already the market is pinch- ed. The president of the grain syn- dicate said that the stock of flour on the Paris market today did not ex- ceed quintals. Paris -'consum- es quintals daily, and th'e gov- ernment is adopting measures similar to those practised in time of war.
