CLARKE The Able Libaral Candidate in Red Deer Constituency DESCRIPTION OF SEVORD THE CROW'S NEST DEAL Hon. Mr. Fi -Icling in his Toronto speech dealt with that venerable Crow's Nest Pass "scandal." He was not concerned, he said, about the Toronto Globe, it had shown that it could take care of itself. But he was concerned about the position of th Opposition on this question. He asked who "chloroformed" that dear old man, Sir Charles Tupper? Who "chloroformed" Mi-. Foster I-1 Last, but not least, who "chloroformed" Mr. Borden? He sat in the House of Commons at the time of Crow's Nest Pass and had never opened his mouth. "He says that all the facts were said Mr. Fielding, "that everybody knew them; now, if Mr. Borck-n knew them and was silent and allowed the trans- action to go through, what sort of man is he to make the prime minis- ter of Mr. Fi.-lding pointed out that it always took two parties to make a trade. 'Now, if two million dollars- was stolen, who got the swag? It wae the Canadian Pacific Railway Com- pany, a large body of people scat. the world, but more particularly a small numb.r of men living mostly in Montreal and To- ronto, and one of the nearest, and should lie say clearest, to hie hearers.. was Mr. E. B. Osier. JSTow, he would not like to say that Mr. Osier was a boodler or a thief He should say he was an excellent citizen, a little biased in his politics but Mr. Borden said that this that he called a cor- rupt transaction was between Mr. Osier and his colleagues and the Dc-minion Government. Mr. Borden said it, not the speaker. What a grand opportunity this would bj for the peep-show of his friend, Mr. Ames? In a humorous way Mr. Fielding represented Mr. Ames showing "original cheques" and then the smiling features of Mr. E. B. Osier, as the man who carried off the swag!

McKeiowN, MANAGER What the Liberal Government At Ottawa Has Done For LABOR v The first five of a shipment of twen ty-five cgrs of raw sugar from Ger- many arrived this morning for the Knight Sugar Co. of Raymond. The other twenty cars will nrrive in a day or two. The sugar beet harvest is progress- ing rapidly. The A. R. I. Co have found that they have not enough cars to handle the business and ure getting ten more from the t he specially fitted up for this The Carpenters having reported a grievance, the question of the bene-' strikes and lockouts by: fits of a Building Trades Alliance TU was thoroughly discussed. While some of the delegates favored the for mation of this alliance, others con- demned it as having a tendency to disrupt the Trades and Labor Coun- cil. The label committee who were apparently not attending to their du- ties, were discharged, and the fol- the commenciment of its term of office in 1896 the Liberal Govern, ment advocated and carried into effect a progressive labor policy. Its attitude towards labor has not been one of promise and pretence such as characterized the record of the former Conservative -administration... The record of the present Liberal administration is one of actual performance. Here are some of the actual achievements, of the Government during its twelve years of office, in the direct interests of the working class of Canada. The establishment of a Department of Labor; The publication of a monthly journal known as The Labor Gazette; The abolition of the sweating system in connection with Government contracts; f The adoption of a fair wages policy with regard to ail Government con- tracts. The enactment of legislation to aid in the prevention and settlement mission into conditions of employment of operatives in the cotton in the Province of Quebec, which has brought to light some startling facts in regard to the employment of child labor in that industry, and which is-certain to result in regulations for th; betterment of conditions of women and children, as well as for all classes of labor in that and kindred industries. (7. The enactment of important measures of social and moral reform, such as the Lord's Day Act, which contains important provisions on the subject of Sunday labor, and the'suppression of the opium traffic in Can- ada, which was a direct outcome of a report prepared by the Deputy Min. ister of Labor, and a oill at the last session by the Minister of Labor. of The Conciliation Act, !900. (2) The Railway Labor Disputes Act, 1903. (3) The Industrial Disputes Inv estigation Act, 1907. The enactment of legislation and the adoption of measures Canadian workingmen from competition of alien labor; and the unfair com. lowing new petition of such classes of labor as might tend to lower the standard of living of the industrial classes of this country, as for example: The Alien Labor Act of 1897 and amendments of 1898 and 1901.

It was the opinion of of the delegates that the union men should not remain idle in this matter. He had no doubt that the laboring men of this constituency could elect member for this constituency. The other business was routine. (3) The Act to prevent false representations to induce immigrants to come to Canada, 1903. (4) The enactment in 1905 by the Parliament of Great Britain of a mea. sure in reference to false representations, similar to the last named, in the British Isles to induce emigration td Canada, passed at the request of the the Prox-incial Assembly, the!

Liberal Government at Ottawa, genuinely concerned in the welfare of its people, and pledged to advance the interests of all classes, should in its legislation keep the workingman in mind as well as other classes... This has been the case in Alberta, where, during the first session the Mechanic1 Lien was passed to the great benefit of artisans. During the last session two very important measures, consisting of the most advanced labor legislation, were put on the provincial statute books. The Workmen's Compensation Act was patterned upon the most modern Act of a similar nature secured by the Labor party in Great Britain...It was introduced by Attorney-General Cross in the Legislature, and its pas. sage shortly after secured to the workmen good compensation for injuries received when at work in another's employ... In one point it differed from the British Act: it did not include agricultural laborers in the enactment, which naturally should apply to industrial, labor. The eight-hour law, introduced by Hon. Mr. made proper provision for the regulation of working hours of miners, lim- iting the length of time in might bs expected to work in the sunless mines.
