They failed lo follow the course Ihe.y should have taken before striking. No appeal was made lo tho higher officers of the company. Nor was any appeal made lo Ihe Hallway l.ahov Hoard specially named to lake care of disputes between railway companies and their men. And had they not, been satisfied with the findings of tho various tribunals up to thai point I hey had recourse to Ihe Industrial Disputes Act." Mr. Coleman said he believed the smaller local unions In the west are bill Ihe catspaws of the executive, as Is proven by the I'aet (lint, at Winnipeg, where the headquarters of I ho union Is located, the men havo not Kone on strike.

They slated that the Increases under the so-called MeAdoo award should he retroactive to May first. This is a contention which tlio company's officers were quite prepared to argue out with them.

Let Us try to help them to see that. They passionately plead Kiln's Isle, sacred and in divisible; bin oddy enough, there Is not an island on the globe winch Is u complete and sovereign state. Cuba comes near it. but Cuba Is limited by the IMatt amendment. Great liritaln is only a pari of a sovereign state, and embrace'; no less than three historic nationalities. In all that bus preceded .wo have assumed that Home Hule id both Just and expedient. Hut Is it expedient',' So -wise a man as favour, maker of United Italy, was convinced that it was not; he expressed the. fervent hope that the repeal of the Union, agitated in his day, would not be passed-primarily for Hie sake of Ireland herself. One reason for this view la given by u Frenchman whose words I have already cjwotetl: "As for the 'wrongs' of Ireland," ho says, "they have long since ceased to exist, except on paper or in the chatter of politicians. Del us not forget that since the Act of I'nion (1800) tho finances of Ireland are thoao of England; that since 182!) religions liberty has been co.'nplctc; that two-thirds of tho land has been returned, thanks to England's) gold, to the hands of its cultivators; that the Irish agricultural laborer Is the best housed, the host fed, the most Independent of his class in the world; that local self-government la absolute; taat tho representation of Ireland Is ho numerous in the Parliament at Westminster as again and again to decide party supremacy In England, and that, consequently, Ireland, has imposed her will upon English, Scotch and Welsh statesmen. It Is grotesque to hear Irishmen denounce British tyranny when one remembers that the lame Irishmen have always nc-eeptcd with both lmnda the generous gifts of the Hrltish Exchequer. It h with this cursed English gold that Irish men pay their old-age pensions .... and these same Englishmen auhsldized the revlrul of the tluelle language."
