Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - October 15, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta TUESDAY, OCTOBER 15, 1918 PAGE THREE' I lABOR MARKET IN ALBERTA WILL BE IILIZED SOON (Kdmonton Journal) To stabilize and protect tlie labor market In Alberta is llie purpose ot the nowly established system of labor bureauKi, wlilejli is about to begin operation with a tour ot the province hy the organizer, J. \V. Mitchell. Tiie bureaus are foi' tlie time being to bo under the direction ot Premier Stewart and (he execiitivc council, but it Is expected tliat legislation providing for thoir future operation will bo brought down at the next session of tlio bouse. The legislation passed at the last session contemplated Ihe or-" ganization ot every municipality in tlio province in such a way that full rei'ords of those out ot work and those seeking help miglit bo kept regularly on liie. The part ot the scheme will now be put into operation as speedily q.? possible. Register All Labor .\ complete registration ot labor Is lirnposed in. order that 4he supplies of _ workingraen can be moved most e.iHlly to the places where they are needed. The four bureaus in Edmonton. Calgary, Lethbridge and Medicine Hat will be continued, and in addition to these local branch offices will be apiiointod in each municipality, \^�hore possible the clerks ot these iniinici))alities will probably be asked to ac^'as local registrars. Organizer Mitchell, whose appointment to the chief ofhce of the new t>ureau!?-was announced a few days ago, will usq his ;best efforts, it Is uiiderstood, to protect the interests of the returned soldiers, and will take up tho problem of industrial employment for them jjs vigorously aa possible. Th^; bureaus, however, will deal with the entire labor situation in a general way, and all classes of labor will bo included in their scope. The outcome of the new system may be, it has been pointed out, Uiat private agencies will be closed. There have been cases where Injustices have been done through tho operations of ^ tliese agencies, and the government is hoping to remove the danger ot continued malpractice. For instance, It has been possible in the past, for labor bureaus to have an arrange-inent wtih railroad and otlfar foremen biy which they would supply them with men who would pay for the job and after a few days tliese would be dismissed and new men hired. Thus a continual stream of commissioners went to the bureau to Ue divided with the foremen. This will be "impossible imder tho now regulations. Again, if pssible, men who promise verbally to go to work for a man and after keeping him waiting fail to appear will be blacklisted or punished in some other way, iuid, vice versa, employers will not be permitted to trifle with men and thus do them out of OtheV chances to obtain work. TOFPRICESON O/tawa, Oct. Jl.-^Itegulattona governing winter caught tiidi taken fhrough tho ice in the Province of Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba wore Issued today through the office of tho Alberta representative of the Canada Pood Board, by which sufficient supply Gt tliese fish Avill be made available for Canadian requirements at a fair price. PrKies will bo fixed on trout, white fish and pickerel. Winter caught fish may only bo exported on pormit but no regulations as toi price lias been 'fixed respecting other varieties.
