A large influx of Italian laborers into the city of Montreal in the spring of l9Oi resulted not onl> in suffering and hardship to'tho Ital- ians themselves, but seriously' threat- ened the condition of the labor mar- ket in Montreal, aiid gave grounds sufficient to authorize an investiga- tion in the first instance by the De- puty Minister of tlie Department aid subsequently under oath by a special commission. The last named inves- tigation took iiioce_ before. J Chester and. resulted in the exposure of the fraudulent practices employed by certain employment agencies in Montreal with a inducing immigcation to Canada while swin'l ling on every side in connection with the same practices was clearly indi catcil. In the report of the Commis- sion the fraudulent practices of one Cordasco were dealt with at length, as well as the methods adopted by other employment agencies in the city of Montreal. Tha treatment 01 immigrants by agencies in Montreal, the extortion of The subject came again to the front however, m 1906, in eounection _with the immigration of certain English printers who had been induced by rwp rescutatious made in Knglaud to pro- ceed to Winnipeg during a strike, or printers in that city. The incident was the subject of a. good deal of cor rc'Spondence mid- foully the printers who had come from to Win- 'nipog felt themselves aggrieved and petitioned Kiug fklward direct to in- quire into the circumstances under. which they had been induced to om- igrate. As a result, of the enquiry set afoot, M. W. L. Mackenzie .King, Deputy Minister, of proceeded to Winnipeg iu the summer of 1906 aiid in.veit5gated the subject in. quee- tion.

It was, therefore, bot surprising tkat The Toronto World's sensational sto- ry or his endeavor to rid the Cabinet of Sir Richard Cartwright'c preatMce should have served to elicit irbtu the Minister the decUra- tiou. of his determination that be uiui his old coUeagues would sink or switn together. We have it on good authority that Sir Wilfrid in this con niKrtiou remarked to a friend: ..'.'Sir Ciirtwright bhull a aeat uiy Cabinet so long as he to stay there."

It has been ..the habit of the Tory press to denounce the erection of public buildings and other public works, as a bribe; pure and simple.1 Vet that saintly leader of the Con- servative party, George Eulas Fos- ter, in a speech at Suruinerside, P.

Mr. jvotidemn. him- for his corruptiouist King, therefore, suggested that a re- characteristics or do they merely aim medy to meet future coses of a eiuil- 1 tneir criticisms at the Liberals. F. German Bctwleen Sage's and Roy's j Cordasco, the over- charges for provisions supplied by him, and the fees collected from, la- borers, were all dealt in. special detail. In conclusion the .Commission stat- ed that the evidence fully established the fact that the large influx of immigrants into Montreal in the early part of 1904 was the re- sult of advertisements and represen- tations of Cordasco, acting with the assistance of steamships agencies in Italy and the cooperation of a spec- ial labor agent of the Canadian Pa- cific Railway. In the Commissioner's opinion Cordasco's main object was to compel men thus brought country to pay him the larg, sums he was shown to have received and this he was enabled to do by the company's ag- ent refusing to amploy any. Italians except through him, and further as- sisting him in obtaining steamship agencies which it was his evident in- tention to use in carrying out his object in making further extortions. The recommendec that the City of Montreal should pass a bylaw similar to that in force in Toronto respecting intelligence of Sees, which provides that every per son keeping an intelligence office fo registering the names and residences of and giving information to labor ers, workmen, clerks, domestic s ants, etc., should procure a Iioen.se before being permitted to carry on business and fixes a penalty for ex- tortion, false representation, etc., at a maximum fine of for each offence or imprisonment for a to exceed six months. As already stat- ed, the immediate effect of the inqui- ry into the large inllux of Italian laborers into Montreal was to put a stop to this influx and to relieve the critical condition of tho labor market. in that city and other parts of Can- ada in consequence of the heavy Jm- migration of this particular class of laborers. More important, perhaps. lor character might be provided by imperial legislation analogous to the Dominion Act. itr. P. II. Draper, Secretary of the "Trades and Xabor Congress of Canada later, in a letter to the Minister of Labor 'urged that-in the interests of Ihe work inguieu of Canada every effort pos- sible should-be mwX by the Cana- dian Government -to secure legisla- tion by the British Parliament on the lines suggested by the Deputy Minister of Labor, and in Sept., of iy06, ilr. King by the Minister of Labor to England to pre- sent the views of, the Department of Labor to-ithe British authorities and to endeavor to secure legislation along the lines proposed." It is not necessary to follow this question In letail, but it will suffice to state that Ir. King's mission was wholly suc- and resulted in the incorpora- tion of the following section of the ferchants Shipping Bill which was at that time before the British House of Commons. If any person, by false represen- tation, fraud, or false pretence, in- luces or attempts to induce any per- son to emigrate or to engage a steer- age passage in any ship shall for each, offence be liable to a. fine not exceeding or to imprisonment with or without hard labor for a pe- riod not exceeding three months. This is another signal instance of the prompt and energetic manner in in which the Department of Labor has responded to the wishes of the laboring class and has endeavorwMo protect its interests. Other Je.gislation has been enacted" by the Government largely through represcnt.rfiion which has come to tlu Government through communication f HE'S A.
