TFe Lethbridge Daily Herald Volume IV. Alta.. Tliiirmlay, Septanilier 28, 1011, GOVERNMENT MUST STEP Miners and Operators wil Not Compromise on Strike President Powell and Secralari Carter, of the executive of DIstrie No. IK arrived In the ciiy yesterday afternoon from the meeting of executive In ttticleod. AskeJ whelhei tlie meeting bud done any thing to ward reopening, conciliation proceed ings for a settl-ament of the strike, Sir. Powell stated that Hie meeting was simply one of the regular ings which thy executive holds every two weeks in some of the 'towns along the HUB to dispense with any busi- ness before th-e union. As far us the .men are concerned tlie strike seems to be as far from :iy --ever, was1'the statement of Mr. Powftirto the.. Herald. The men are all anxious, and would lilic to see tiro mines rcojrcn-ed before win- tor. They fire anxious to get back to work. But they feel that tho fight has gone on for so long now that it would be dctrinvental to their ciui-jo to accede to denmuds of the op- erators, so will hold one till a nient Is reached in accordance with their demands. They do not lik-e the iiction of the government in talcing the duty on" coal, as believe that it has given the C. P. R. and the oth- er coal companies an undue advan- tage of the men. Air. Powell termed it a sharp practice on tha part of yie railway com puny which has itself at the exp-anye of the strikers. The (f.uestion most often asked by 'the man on the street who has not 'followed.'every move of the two con- tending: "parties, in this strike, is: "Who should make the first move to- ward settling the This ques- tion was put to Air. Powell, and caus- ed him to smile iu a knowing way. "Well, it fie-ems that we have done everything we can "do to settle it. The operators. say the same thing. What do you make out of Neither side has made a movie of any account for a long time. The matter is just where it was in the 'beginning. Who should step in Well, it looks to me as if the government would have to do something, We are not nfraid that, we will not get our rights if this'Is dono in the right way." Mr. Powell advanced a rather unique but impmctihle scheme which he said would bring about a speedy settlement of the difficulties. Mo said: the people of the West vote on whether, they would be agreeable to pay a amall advance for their coal to the companies the operators would allow the miners to so back -lo work at the wages demanded by the unions. It tlmt were done, I fell cer- tain that the voice of the people would he almost unanimous in favor of such a step." The officers of the-union still con- linns to vtsft the different camps at iv-MUiar Intervals.
