Grant Hall, vice-president and general .manager or the western linen or tha Canadian" 1'aclfic Railway company, made the following statement to the press: "On account of the Konurnl interest ill (he subject have been ask- ed several limns to make a statement jn connection with tlie settlement niiicli was arrived at between the ecmpany and its employm's in tho train Bcrvlcu. In my previous state- inenl, 1 referred to the fact that de- mands were made on the company in 1913, thai these demands were sub- mitted to a board or conciliation In accordance with the law; tliat liie award brought down by tile board, while unsatisfactory in many respects, was accented by the company, but that it was rejected by Hie repre- sentatives of tile employees, who said that it was wholly unacceptable to but that on account of the war having 'broken out in the meantime, they did not wish to do anything which might embarrass ta-ansnorta- tion conditions, while the empire was at war, and therefore desired the matter left in abeyance. The matter was left In abeyance until some five weeks ago, when the representatives of the men aBked for a meeting, stat- ing they had finally decided to. reject the award brought down in ]9M. and asked the company for a counter pro- I position, but added lhat the only coun- ter-proposal which would receive cou- tsideration, would bo involving the ac. ceptance of what they designated as the nine points of the dispute, while I felt that this was pretty dras- tic action, taking into consideration that the country was in a state of and that wu would be justified in hold ing out for the acceptance of tho award of the board, and to try and prevent the possibility of trouble at such a time, I made on behalf of the company, what I considered to bo generous concessions. These were re- jected, and a strike vote was taken. After tho strike vote was taken, ne- gotiations were resumed, and I offer- ed further concessions. Th .se also were rejected, and a strike order i-- sued to take effect Wednesday, Oc- tober 26th at 5 p.m. As I considered it my duty 1 placed the facts before the minister ot labor, and he communicated with the repre- sentatives of the employees. The re- sults of Ills attempted interventions are already known to the public. As the time for the proposed strike drew near, tho prime minister of Canada telegraphed to the men, and offered his services for a settlement but was told that the proposed strike couid not be postponed. The prime minister and minister of labor then, sent a mediator to Winni- peg, with a view to attempting to get the company's officers and the men together. First through the mediator and later directly. I suggested to the J. D.Higinbolhani Co., Limited, WHOLESALE AND .RETAIL CHEMISTS PHONE 322 Our stock of. Xeilson's is always fresh and varied Prices, range "from 50 cents to TIIF FRANK HEDLEY DRUG CO. Carry Nellaonji ChucolatM Prices 10c to Guaranteed Freih. men that the matters in dispute be tween us be submitted to a single ar bitrator, hia decision to be final and binding on both parties I suggested Ihe nameb of the .minw minister of Canada, Sn Robert Boiden Sii il rrid Laurier, the chief'justice of Can- oda. Sir Chailes t and Jlr Ash Kennedy, vice-president 'Of the Brotherhood of Locomotive .Engineers. The offer was declined. The com- pany was, therefore, faca to face with the fact that unless the men's de: mauds were met before 5 p.m. on Wednesday, October 25th, a strike would take place. I therefore enter- ed into direct negotiations with the men, and effected a settlement' at noon yesterday. This, of' course, in- volved further substantial conces- sions, acceptance of tho principles for basing which I do not think: are equitable. In reaching that "decision I felt it 'better that the. railway should ho embar- rassed rather than that the public, should suffer by the threatened dis- location of the service. I was moved to take that view 'by the fact, that the public was anxious about a reported shortage o( fuel, by the fact tliat the unseasonable weath- er has delayed the crop movement; and by. the still, .more important fact that Canada, as.a portion of tha Brit- ish Empire, .is' engaged in a life and death struggle."
