That organized labor is a stron factor in Lethbridge is well known to residents of this city but had any stranger in the city any doubts on the matter, he was convinced yester- day. Seven hundred members oi" trades unions in a parade indicates no small amount of strength in city of six thousand people. As this long array of able, intelligent men marched past one was forced to con- clude that organized labor is not only one of the strongest but one of the best elements in the population of the city. Sid Dtmcaa, the of the Trades and Labor Council, led the procession on horseback and was fol- lowed by the Lethbridge Concert Band. Then came the members of the Trades and Labor Council, the governing body or organized labor in the city. Following them in the place of honor were the striking C. P.R. machinists. They were all dress ed in new overalls and smocks, ap- parently as yet untouched by the dirt and grease of a C'.P.R. locomo- tive or car. The city's efficient fire brigade came next. Then came the first Uoat. that of the Typographical Union. This prac tical display of the work of the prin- ter was handled by four of the Hayr Transfer Co.'s fine big' Clydes and was decidedly the feature of the pa- rade. On the dray, the boys had a! fully equipped printing office from the to the editor. The copy was written and set in type and run j oil on H. press that was bein.c: operat- ed as the office was drawn through the streets. j The Bartenders Union had a realis-' tic float and were plying their trade j -with diligence. The flour millers had j a quiet but' very effective exhibit ofj their trade. One of the neatest! floats of the whole parade-was that; of the Painters and Decorators. j The second part of the procession was headed by the Lethbridge City'-j Band, followed by the Miners, two!

The J worker must be organized in the in- dustrial field until they get control of the political" field. An election will be on soon and they will hear a lot of dope as to what the Conser- vatives and the "Liberals did with the j land and the timber but that makes no difference to the workingman as they would get of the land or timber anyway, because they do not own the government's. The speaker criticized the labor legislation passed saying that by providing for appeals to the courts it made the chances j dress in which he stated that the j government is the people, composed of men sent to parliament by free- hold electors. There are other class- j es .than workingmen to be considered i and he believed that the foundation j for the attainment of their demands rested in the development of the ag- j ricultural industry.

The fight lasted 23 rounds and at. its conclusion Re- feree Jack Welch unhesitatingly grasped each lad by the hand, sig- nifying that the fight was indecisive. The decision seemed to please the crowd and there cheers for each fighter as he wended his way from the ring. The fight on the whole was rather tame but this was offset by the cleverness of the fighters. It was marked by Moran's aggressiveness and Attell's cleverness in blocking and his all around defense. The con- sensus of opinion was that the Cali- fornian did not show up in as good form as in former contests.
