nf Morrlssey, and although theie was
nearly four feet on the level, the river

whether or not there will be unusually

and there Is no warm weather or spring
rains In sight.

Tin- conciliation committee represent

which wnssent to fertile In attempt l«
RdUle the disaatrloui coal strike, Has for
warded a report ii Its aucce-ttdul endeavor to tlu- head office dI tlie associittioii
Tin* report is in pari aa follows;
"The commissio Ranlaeil  foi   worh
on Monday morning, March 9, President
Keen, nl the association, netltiR aschair*
mm, nml W. G. Oiunce beliift elected
secretary, Tins situation was found to
tin very serum-*., over 1,300111011 lieing out

the justice of their position. The em*
plnylng companyiiiK tl
expressed etjtiil
other hand,
1 tin- tenahil
Uy of Its position, anil no thought ol
concession was anywhere apparent. The
gravity of the situation anil the ell ict nl
the industrial disturbance became daily
ami hourly more impressed upon tlie
com mission by the receipt oi telegrams
ami otherwise of its far reaching results
Front the mining and smelling industries
of Rossi a ml, Nelson. Trail and Boundary
districts, ciuiie reliable news ol distress
ami injury, mines and smelters being
closed, and large forces of men being
thrown out of employment by the cessn
Hon of the fuel supply from this point,
The commission early recognized the
the heavy responsibility ol the task imposed upon it and settled lo work with
the conviction that tact and patient efiort
alone could relieve the situation and
bring about what was highly dealrablu-
11 lastitiK peace founded on equitable
"Tbe coal compauy afforded the com
mission every facility to get at the facts
of the case so far as the wages paid was
concerned) g.ving it free access to the
company's books; whilt; the I0e.1l union
represented through tlieir executives
mul the district union executive, met tlie
commission in a most trustful and becoming spirit ami pledged assistance in
the work undertaken. Mr. II. V. Dough
erty, president of the district union, No.
6, \V. F, of M.| waa present the entire
time, advising the committees of tbe
striking miners in ilieir deliberations,
and while showing himsell Uiu spokesman and champion of organized labor,
revealing himself at the same time as
the friend ot justice tn ull. His evident
devotion to the cause entrusted to him
must have made every member of the
executive bis trusty admirer, even us it
made every member of Lhe commission
Ins friend,
'•The alleged causes of the s'rilte were
multiplied ami limy be summarized briefly um follows: A distrust of the company's management, ijuite as much that
nf the company's lnferlor,as of its superior officers; 11 failure on the pin of the
compauy in recognize the il Herein local
and district unions, and to treat with
their officers ami committers; the disinclination nf the company to Hell or lease
lands at Morrissey anil Michel to the unions upon which in erect places oi meeting; a system ol espionage In Ihe various
local ami district unions practised by the
company; the system nl back hand labor
lu vogue and the existence of a definitely arranged wage-scale whereby Uie men
were tillable to earn equal wages, Lesser Subjects of complaint were washhuilse
charges, tare of cars and the conditions
of management which made the earning
capacity of ihe miner effective, The
eight and a halt hour ilay required of the
men in underground work was also i<
cause of complaint.
The commission held thirty-four sessions of iis entice bo Iv, and many interviews through sub committee, with ita*
management oil one ha lid ami with   tlld
men on the other; made u visit to the
Coal creek mines, and looked into the
matters of complaint as tu tbe size ami
welgu'i of cats and rulesgoverillllg witnli-
houses ami lamps, aud examined 011 re
quest oi the district executive commit'
tee thirty-one witnesses mulct oath,
"The result of the commission's in*
Tesligalions justiiied the position taken
by tlie men in some matters but not ill
(niters. Your commission believes thai
hi the aggregate good wages arc being
paid by the company to thc miners ami
employees oulBide ul Uie coke oven men
aud further more believes that with
amended practices in view ami promised
by the company the former will be mora
equitably distributed ami the wages ol
I. e coke oven men increased.
■'P'rom time lo time timing lhe pro
gress of the work the district executive
