Railway Labor Board specially named to take care of disputes between railway cpm-panies and  their men. And had they not been satisfied with the findings oT ,thd! various tribunals up to that point they had recourse to the Industrial Disputes Act." "Mr. Coleman said hc believed the smaller local unions in the west are but the catspaws of the executive, as is proven by the fact that, at Winnipeg, where the headquarters of the union is Ipcated, the' men have hot gone on strike. He said that the statement which he made yesterday at Calgary applies equally, to Lethbrldge. The statement, after dealing with the details of the' Calgary strike, says: "Having through bad advice taken a wrong step, the men then proceeded to talk of other grievances. They stated that the increases under the so-called McAdoo award should be retroactive to May'first. This is a contention which the company's officers were quite prepared to/argue out with them. We are how' negotiating ^vfth the freight, handlers at Winnipeg on this very point, and if no agreement is reached the matter will be submitted to the Railway�Labor- War Board for decision.

I do not oul�e understand What the men'in this case mqan'by "recognition of the union." We have, not forbidden employees to belong- to that organization. We have been- quite willing to meef. committees of employees in the sheds, and have never-asked them as to their union affiliations. We have, given them no assurance �which we have not respected, and have inade no agreements Which we have not kept. If they mean however that we should make a contract with the Indianapolis organization', we do take exception to that. As far as'our knowledge* of. and experience with that organization is concerned, it is not a responsible body with which a contract could be made. The members are allowed to go out on local strikes without notice and in violation of the laws of Canada. Furthermore, it does not undertake to protect the company against sympathetic strikes in connection with disputes with which the company has no .connection. Other labor organizations with which , we have made contracts are in a position to guarantee fulfilment on the'part of their members. We decline to sign a contract Which binds only one party to it. We submit that the whole transportation system of Canada should not be liable to a tie-up every time, there is a labor squabble in a bake shop, at Bassano. The company's officers have told the men, through the representative of the Dominion government, that they are prepared at all times tp receive a committee of their own employees, to guarantee them the right of appeal to the highest officer of the company, and thence to the railway war board, and to continue the policy of non-discrimination against individuals whether union or non-union. All we asked in return was that the men should return to work, and present their case through the proper channel and in the regular way. After, as we understand it, agreeing on two occasions to return to work on that basis, the men backed up again, and they now state they cannot return to work until they get authority from somebody in Indianapolis. We come to the time when we must.make arrangements to fill, permanently,,the places of the men who have left' us. We are deluged with applications from competent and respectable men and women, and we feel that the public are entitled to restoration or our full service, we therefore intend to proceed at once to fill up the gaps. 'The. company's officers are quite willing that the public and our other! employees. should judge between the parties in" this dispute. We have not asked any employee to take his con-1 science or his freedom in pawn for us; we are quite willing that his every right should be absolutely guaranteed, I but on the other hand we propose to take every measure in our power to seo that our service to the public is efti- j cient and continuous.

' - The .following illuminating article on the Irish Home Rule question recently appeared in the Outlook (New-York) ; Here is the rub: The Home Rulers will not rest satis Mod with autonomy for themselves; thoy want to rule the Irish Unionists also-against their will./,The Home Rulers say they will never consent to separates treat ment for the Irish Unionists, because this would mutilate the Irish nation. But what constitutes the Irish nation? And what, in general, Is a nation? It will be remembered that on January 4, 1861, Governor Pickens proclaimed "the sovereign nation of bouth Carolina;" but that chapter is closed. When was Ireland a nation? Was it in 1169,' when Norman-Welsh mercenaries were enlisted by the King of Lein-ster in his war againut the King of Connaught? But Ireland at that time' was made up of no less than five kingdoms, which had been fighting ffercely among ea?h other for a millennium and a half. The present division of the four provinces simply perpetuates the olds, division into kingdoms with the ancient boundaries, the two kingdoms of Lelns:er and Meath being joined in a single province. Does it not seem to follow, then, that if the-'argument for historic nationality is to be pressed the historic difference between the provinces must go with it. District court opened again yesterday morning with Judge McNeil presiding. The case of Dymnfski vs Union Collieries, Limited, was taken up under the Workmen's Compensation Act. Anthony Dymniski, father of the deceased, who died as the result of injuries sustained during employment, applied for arbitration for the sura of $1800. Mr. Ostlund appeared for the applicant and no decision was given awaiting a written argument to be put in By Mr. Ostlund. The cases of Dean vs AsSlnlboia Music Co.. and Klllgore vb Lynds, were set over till the October sittings. PASSBURQ NOTES Women!

Here Is one way In which this might work out: Sir Horace Plunk-ett, in 'presenting his recent. report, pleaded for "dominion government" for Ireland-the kind of, government which had its beginning with' the Dominion of Canada in 1867. But does Sir Horace realize, do Home Rulers realize, that inclusion in the Dominion wafe optional; that Newfoundland has always declined to be included and has kept Labrador with her; and when the Australian Commonwealth wbb formed in 1900 inclusion was one more optional? Does hot this concede the whole case for the Irish Unionists? Further, eaoh province in the Dominion has a separate parliament with exclusive right 6f direct taxation. Does the Home Rule theory include this option, this provincial independence, for Unionist Ireland, as is implied by the plea for "dominion" government? And if not, why:not? Or do Irish Home Rulers wish to emulate the Magyars, who, gaining their own independence, straightway proceeded to ride roughshod over the Slovaks and Roumanians? But, I think, the essential thing is to"make It clear, most of all to Irishmen that Home Rule has been held back, not because England objected to Home Rule, but because'Home Rulers asked for something that they had no right to ask for-a fundamental injustice to others. H^ad they conceded km-the Irish Unionists whajpthey demand for themselves, Without question Home Rule would have been" in operation these four years-since. 1914. Let us try to help them to see' that. They passion ately plead Erin's Isle, sacred and indivisible; but oddy enough, there is not an island on. .the globe which is a .'complete and-sovereign state. Cuba comes near it, but Cuba is limited by the Piatt amendment. Great Britain is only a part of a sovereign state, and,embraces no less than three historic nationalities. .""In all that has preceded we have assumed that Home Rule is both just and expedient. But is it expedient? So wiie a man as Cavour, maker of United Italy, wsb 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 the sake of Ireland herself. One reason for this view is given by a Frenchman whose words I have already quoted': -"A� for the 'wrongs' of Ireland," he says, "they have long since ceased to exist, except on paper or in the chatter of politicians. Let us not forget that since' the Act of Union ,(1800) the finances of Ireland are those of England; that since 1829 religious liberty has been complete; that two-thirds of the land has been returned, thanks to England's fiold, to the hands of its cultivators; that the Irish agricultural laborer is the-best housed, the best fed, the most Independent of his class in the world; that local self-government is absolute; that - the representation of Ireland is so numerous in tfio 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, onev remembers that the � same > Irishmen have always accepted with both hands the generous gifts of the British Exchequer. It is with this ' cursed English . gold that Irish men pay their old-age pensions : . . . and these same Englishmen subsidized the revival of the Gaelic language.".. .Home v Rule -might'" mean, therefore, the cessation of many advantages.

While here she made one of a merry party which viowed the mines and other interentlng points. The party was composed of Mr. Donaldson of Belle-vue. Mr. Swan from Coaldale, Miss Cameron from Nova Scotia, Miss McCarthy of Blairmore, and Mrs. Knowles and daughters of Passburg. Some of the young people got tangled in the snow\sheds, thinking to find an easy way. out, but forgetting that they would need to be dumped out. at the end in a coal car. After some time they emerged, and some jolly photos were taken. On the return the party called on Mr. and Mrs. Glover, who are occupying the big Hamilton house on the police Hats. Miss Flora Cameron of Pictou, Nova Scotia, is teaching at Passburg this term. About thirty pupils have enrolled so far. . J. N. Rowell of Wapella, Sask., was a recent visitor to town. Mr. and Mrs. H. W. Stevinson and little son were guests two days this week of Mrs. T. Knowjes. They are on their way through from the coast to Edmonton, where ' Mr. Stevinson will put in his final year in the theology at Robertson College. He and Mrs. Stevinson have been visiting friends on former fields on their way, having stayed two weeks at Slocan City, B. C., where they were stationed five years ago. They report a good fruit year in B. C, especially an abundance of apples. At Slocan City and down the Slocan Valley the question is the .marketing of the fruit, some of the trees being so laden that branches are brushing the ground," Mr. W. L. Hamilton Of Lethbrldge, accompanied by the Messrs. Leitch, all owners , of the Passburg mines, spent a few da^ys around these parts last week on business in connection with the Leitch Collieries. "Junior-' Knowles has taken his car to the Ford hospital at Blairmore, as it had developed a slight balkiness. Junior has had the car only since June, and feels that it has shown a rather bad disposition.  A number of the empty houses from Passburg have been removed to Belle-vue, which has been quite enhanced by the addition of these picturesque cottages. We expect, to see them come lolling back in the near future, as some of the men are .being laid off now from the Bellevue mines, and'it is rumored that the Passburg mines are being sold. , ; " ' ' ' �'' '"� ' At home or abroad men need clothes suited to their occupation.
