Mr. E. D. dealing with thi woollen industry, few year ago we were importing into this coun try less than worth o HELP TO STOP STRIKES. Another feature that should con- sidered in the Liberal policy of pro- viding railway competition in the West, is effect of this policy in regard to strikes and similar labor troubles. Any policy that will tend to do away with strikes will be a j benefit, not only to the work-j ingmen and the companies, but to; the general public as wr-11. The competitive road? will provide employment for me.n who are isfied with conditions on the road for which they arc working. Thr com pany, knowing imi, mcr; Careful to make conditions suitable] to its employees. Where there isj competition a strike is particularly disastrous to the companies, as strike exists on one road the who'o traffic is diverted to another, and thereby business is permanently lost instead of being merely delayed, as it ia in the West .under present cumstances. It is therefore a cer- tainty that rather than suffer a strike to occur the companies will be more reasonable with their, employees, knowing that they will not only lo.e business, but lose their employees as well, AS the best oi them can get work on the other roads.
