H. was built by new premier, today read the minister- j 'he mombers of Comet Ltxlgn Xo. bor received a good boost in Taber from their presence. This was in reality the object of their trip, and there is not the least doubt that they accomplished their purpose. The Miners' band under the lead- ership of Fiv.nk Cline went along to supply ).be music for the occasion, and many complimentary remarks were heard on every band on the way in which they carried out their part of the program. They turned out about '25 strong, and rendered many selections throughout tho day. Taber band 'also lent their aid in their usual finished styie, showing that. Taber too can lay claim to pos-' ses-sing one of the finest bands, for small town, in the west. Robert. Ibey led the Taber band, and there was no dearth of musical numbers to enliven the proceedings. The Parade On its arrival at Taber shortly after LI o'clock, tlie special was met at the station by the Taber band, and the nommittec looking after the sports fpr ho Taber pr-ople. By 12 o'clock tho unions were marshalled to- gether under their leaders for the this part of tho proceedings, as was impooasible for th-em too make their proper forced as they were to follow the sidewalks. How- ever, about six hundred people joined in the procession from MK> station to thc athletic grounds. The Taber Min- ers' union ivji.-ij out in force, the Taber end of the of thai body far as Taber is concerned. Tt was tt Hasten the organization of the labor forces In Tuber that the celebration had been planned for Taber on that day, and while the weather was in- clement, ho was sure that the good will shown by the Lethbridge people, in braving the elements in order to lend their aid, would result in a great Increase in the interest taken in the. labor movement among the labor men of Taber. Me then called upon Donald McXabb, of Lethbridge to address the audience, which was done In Mr. Mc- Xabb's usual quiet way. Mr. ilc.Vabb reviewed the growth of the labor movement throughout West- em Canada, and showed the magnifi- cent advance which had been made during the past few years for the betterment of labor In this part of the continent. Referring to Lcth- bridge in particular in this regard he spoke of the growth of the there. Seven years ago they had had their first really representative La- bor Day celebration there, and very few trades were represented. Ever since that time they had been steadily increasing in numbers, their celebra- tions becoming more and more im- portant as the years paeaed. Now, he said, labor In Lethbridge was repre- sented by 2fi unions affiliated with Trades and Labor them represented thousands. He referred to The Work the Unions Were Doing n Western Canada, mentioning partlc- ilarly tha present coal strike, by which about COB! miners are-nft 'eeted. He spoke with confidence oit victory in their struggle, becausfe hey were upheld by every other la- bor organization in the province. He loped the presence of the Loth- delegation there that day would' tend to a speedy organization of the labor forces in Taber, as in union only could they have strength. Labor Organization Mr. McNiibb was followed by J, C. Walters, president of the British Co- lumbia Federation of Labor, who in a well received address spoke of the trend of labor In these days towards organization for the betterment of the laboring classes, so that bunion being in charge under A.

The Object of the Day Arriving at the athletic grounds, the crowd entered the grand stand listen to the speeches delivered KILLED ON THE TRACK, Sault Ste. Marie, Ont., Sept. Forrls, a middle rotsrinary surgeon of Soo, Michigan, was Insttint- y killed tonight while walking along to by noted labor workers In Western Can- ada. The .speakers were introduced Chairman McRoberta of Tuber, who explained the purpose of bringing the Lcthbrldge delegation from thlfc city for the occasion. Labor, he said, is well orgauiz-ed jn LeLhhrldge, but the movement is itg could live with all the neceisaries and some of the luxuries of lifg. In Canada, the matter of organization, was rather difficult, he said, owing to the fact that tbe various centres of labor are so widely scattered. How- ever the labor forces in B, C. are now well organized, and doing good work, and he looked forward to Alberta to flu its share In pushing the move- ment along. Symonds, of the Electrical of Isethbrldge, also delivered a short but stirring address, telling of the advance which ha-d been made in Lethbridgo in the past few years, complimenting the Taber Miners' Unions on their enterprise in bringing the Lethbridge delegation to their town for Labor Day. Afternoon Sports The afternoon was taken up with sports at the Athletic grounds and about five hundred dollars in prizes had been donated for the occasion by the people of Taber. Before the sports started, however, a drizzling rain came on. and a great many peo- ple who otherwise would have flt- tendtid remained down town so that lhe crowd present: to witness the not large. Tbe baseball 1 j match between the old foe-a, Leth- bridge" and Taber, did not material- ize as the diamond was a small lake, making if, impossible to piny the game. However, the Interest of lhe afternoon centred about foot- hall game between (he1 Oallies of LPthbridge, and a picked eleven from Taber. The game was played on an improvised OH, making fast play impossible, and only twenty minute halves were played. The Callies play- tholr usual strong game, nm! had no difficulty in carrying off the s ot a set of club sweaters, by the score of 2-0. Taber Heayiei Win Two picked teams ot heavyweights from Taber and 'Lethbridge nnrticl- pated in the tug-of-war which was rather amusing on account of! the slippery condition of the ground. The Taber heavies won after a wonderful struggle, and carried off Uio sot of nine pipes for the winners. The foot races w-ere slow on ac- count of the wet track, hut vill were well contested.
