Mr. Gardner was the spokesman for the delegation, and he declared that the men had given explicit .orders that no compro* mi�e otter was to toe entertained. In case the councS cannot grant the demands of the men, they will not go on'.strike hut will apply to the government for a board of.conclllation �un- der the Industrial Disputes Act, ^s required by a recent government war ruling affecting wage troubles. . The appearance of the street railway men before the council has not been unexpected as It has been known tor a long time that they were dissatisfied, but the extent of their demands was rather * surprise. At the present time the man are working for 42% cents an hour, a nine hour day and seven days a week. They declare it Is unfair that they should be asked to work seven days a week in order to, AUCTION SALES I Tomorrow, FRIDAY AT 10.30 >AM. ON THE PREMISES, 1213 FIFTH AVE. A .S.

AN IMPORTANT_SAl-E^-<*fATCH FOR^AO. earn enough money-, on which, fto live. The wages asked would amount to practically the same-as they are now receiving but they would have one day a week rest which they claim they must have. It is likely the dispute will go before a board of conciliation, for the council declared It will he impossible to meet the demands. Mayor Hardie declared "that the ratepayers have not the ability to pay a higher tax rate than they are at present paying, that for the past five years only about 60 per cent of the taxes have been paid each year and if T5 per cent is paid during 1918 the council will consider that the people are doing very well. Commissioner Freeman pointed out that the street railway wage tn Leth-brWge is about as high as in other cities of the west Mr. Gardner chal-' lenged this statement In Calgary the men get 60 cents par hour. In Edmonton they get more than here. In fact, he said Lethbrldge was the lowest paid railway system in the west. Mr. Freeman challenged this statement, declaring that the men are as 'well paid as in Moose Jaw and Saskatoon. Put Cars In Barn? And if the question goes before a board of conciliation It is hard to tell what will happen. At least that is the opinion of the members of the council. If the demands o� the men are met; it will mean an increase of nearly 20 per cent If this increase is granted in one department it would have to be granted throughout all the city departments, which, the commissioners etale, would mean an increase of between $20,000 and $30,000 a year which would be raised out of taxes. This would mean two or three mills more on tbe tax rate. Rather than grant the increase the council might decide to put the cars: in the barn. The commissioners pointed out that this would be a saving. At the present- time the operation of the cars only pays $4000 of the $32,000 overhead charged on the system. By putting the cars In the barn the in-arease on the Btreet railway deficit would be only?4000 a year whereas by granting the increase asked by the man, and the natural increases which other departments would demand, the citizens would have to raise at least five times thi3 amount in taxation each year. The question is a troubled one. The men declare that they cannot exist on less than they are asking. The commissioners declare" granting' the demand would put the street railway Bystom out of business. What will be the result? LOCAL FREIGHT BADLY TfED UP BY THE STRIKE No Negotiations Yet-Men Issue Statement Setting Out Their Case THE POINT OF VIEW. "He looks to me like a man who had loved and lost" "Jls looks to me like a man who had loved and waa."-IMe. Movement of L.C.L. flight at the local C.P.R. freight shede'today is practically at a standstill. There is an embargo on that class of freight, but spur track freight is being handled as usual. This tie-up in traffic in Lethbridge is due to the strike yesterday noon of the Brotherhood of Railway Clerks, Freight Handlers and Station Employees which affected about 40 men. Supt. MacKintosh, whp returned last night from Calgary had no statement for the press this morning, but advised that he might be able to issue one some time during the afternoon. Meantime various makeshifts are being made among the employees who are remaining on duty and freight and baggage is being kept moving as well as possible. Whether negotiations will be opened between the local management and the striking men is not known as neither side showed a disposition to get together this morning. It 1b reported from Calgary that there is danger of the men of the Og-den shops going out in sympathy. Position of the Men. The executive committee of the Btriking unions hare issued the following letter to the Herald setting .forth their position: "In your yesterday's issue you stated that the above staffs would come out on strike in sympathy with the Calgary staffs. Wo don't object to this statement In the least, only we would like the public to know that the above staffs from Fort William to Vancouver belong to the same organization, and that the reason for this strike is that the officials of the rail-: road will not recognize the union and that they will not give the men any guarantee as to the putting of the Mc-Adoo award and all subsequent amendments into effect. "The men have, been trying to negotiate with the officials fcince the first of May but have notAeenliblo to make any headway, -at arL'is "Before concluding we wojild- like; to point out to the public'that the Mc- Adoo award and amendments have been granted to the whole of the American railroads and also to most of the railroad brotherhoods In Canada, so the public will see that we are not asking for anything that is unreasonable but only what has been granted to the rest of the railway brotherhoods on the American continent. "Thanking yon on behalf of the committee for the prominence and space you will give this letter. "We beg to remain, yours, THE EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE AMERICANS, NOTE!

Smith Makes Emphatic Statement Edmonton, Sept. 2.6.-The recent arrival of several settlements of Mennonites-in-1 this province has provoked considerable discussion as to what concessions should or should not be granted them.

They will be required to conduct and support public schools under the -law of this province, to use bur authorised text books, to use only the English language, to employ teachers with proper Alberta qualifications, and to satlBfy the regularly appointed school inspectors in the employ of the department." * � < SECOND JURY DISAGREES ?
