.V despatch' to tho Winnipeg Telegram from Fernie,. tiiays,: A caretul
unulysis of thc situation in regard
to relief in Fornie shows that the
conditions continue to wurrunt the
urgent need of further Uuunfiul ' as-
sisianee from outsiUe. The monev
which lias been generously contributed has been given to relieve the press
ing necessities of the" moment, but
the future gives cause, for deep concern. In three months winter will
bo here and by that time it will be
necessary to° havo homes of some
kind for the whole population. Horo
than 90 per cent, of the people hero
lost everything they possessed in thc W£lS aPP°inted to mcjl U"J ,r-licf
recent conflagration, and while many comnliU(i0 U\[s mornI"8 wiUl «*»•■* r'
of them will have insurance to enable
them to rebuild, there- are over 200
miners iu addition to mill hands and
other members of tho population who
will
mediately, available,  with  which    to
make a. beginning on a'new home.
it will be' necessary - to make some
provision., for these at once. They
must be assisted to buy clothing,
bedding, kitchen utensils, and what
is most important, toIbuild a shack
or kitchen in- which to live during
the cold winter:- Tents and even out
door spaces may answer for summer
"A despatch to the- Winnipeg Telegram from Fernie says: A largely ..
tended meeting of workingmen wns
held on the recreation grounds last
night to discuss ,thc present condi
tions of the relief work. W. II. L,v-
nns, who was called i,.-i thu c'.-ur,'
said: "ln times of troubles ony must
look' after one's own interests. .Mr.
Sherman and a few others will tiruk
and we will then ask you to form a
committee that will see that things
arc worked more fairly. '
Mr.  Sherman then said: "\W>. had a

ing there was not the proper feeling
shown. Among the, working men of
today thero are capable ones io run
the offices of this country, and it
docs not require great brains to hv-
cuiuulate wealth in this country. All
wo want is square dealing, mid we
will get it if we stick together. The
fund sent for relief should not be al
owed to lie in banks or to used to
afford* to build up their own. Over
$10,000. per month goes in taxes,
which amounts°to $120,000 ,n taxes
if wc get §10,000-offered,^ throw it.

should liavo n voice in the spending

A homo is a homo, uo mailer how

Merritt, B. C, July 31, 1908
liditor District 'Ledger:
Bear Sir,—1 read in your valuable
paper July 2oth's issue whoro tho W.
l*\ -M. now in Convention at Denver,
Colo., wero discussing closer allilia-
tion .with the U. M.   ,V. of A.
1 think that if it could be done it
would bo ono of tho grandest things
for tho" workors ' throughout this
great Western country. 1 would like
to see District and International oflicers do their utmost for that purpose for with tlie quartz miners and
coal miners bound closer together
they could present a powerful position.
It behooves the workers in this
^ ! liOth century to get closer together
4 j instead of iigAtiiig euch other for
♦ 1 remember the capitalists do not
- ijunrrel amongst -themselves. Their
main point is how to skin the worker and 1 must say Air, Jidi'tor thoy
aro pretty successful.
Now us,an old Federation member,
tiiis closer tUHliution is going to bo
uo snap to bring about and tlioso
who handle .tho job successfully deserve great credit. As thero arc a
great many members of the \V. F. M.
who think the U. M, W. of A. aro bo-
hind the times and in some respects
probably . they ' wore' right, but tho
\j. M. W. of A. have changed their
luetics considerable these last ' few
years, more especially in B. 0. As
lighters the" W. F. M. need no recommendation but in lighting thoy have,
mme at it a littlo blindly. • I think
so which 1 will try to show later. 1
see in the'discussion at tho, convention tho delegates object to tho
cheek-off and contract system. Now
this is one of the reasons an active
member of the Federation gave mo
about two years age why he objected, to the check-oil'. Because the mas
tor knew just how much funds were
paid into the union and therefore
knew your exact strength, but is it
not better to have a fow thousands
at the. back of you and tho capital-
know it, than have none and lie (the
capitalist.) not know.it and I doubt
whether he would not know it as the
man with the big Diamond has a way
of. knowing* everything he'wants to.
Then again thc check-off saves the
price of  a high priced secretary ex-

seat, while' only a few weeks back,
Koine of tlic-m were only working half
time and some not that. Is there a
■greater demand for " coai now than
there was" a month'• or so ago. Personally I don't think there is. ' To
me there seems to be some other
purpose for increasing the output at these different mines
in District 18. All the miners in District 18 aro well aware of
the fact that our present agreements
will terminate in March, 15)09. Thero
fore it behooves every man in this
District to tako particular notice of
what is going on in tho district so
that he may get in touch with the
different conditions existing throughout tho district. If you will just refer back to tho striko twelve iiiontlis
ago last May .you , wi'l lememoor tho
conditions of the coal markets. Industries of all kinds were at a. stnno.
still for the want of coal, in fact
people were actually starving for -the
want of coal. Even our railways
word practically at a standstill. The
only things that were shipped"
through the , country at that timo
were- tilings of a perishable nature.
It is my contention that tlie operators of this district don't intend for
these "cricos to exist again. The idea
of increasing the output is a scheme
of thc operators to fill the markets
and havo a big surplus of con! on
hand, lor ihe termination of oi' present agreements, which will terminate on the 31st day of March, tOOS,
so that in caso of a light at tho termination of 'our present agreements
they will bo in a better position f.:Xt
March than they were sixteen months
ago.' .It's up to the men of District
18 to try and stop this surplus of
coal, to try and prevent thc market
being hooded with coal, because if
tho markets are in a flooded condi-'
tion at the termination of the pro-
sent- agreements we arc .J in bio to go
up against something we least expect. In other countries they have
to adopt ways and means by which
lo stop this over production, ■ Therefore I don't seo why we can't do the
same. Therefore 1 hope and trust
that the oflicers and members of District 18 U. M. W. of a! will uso all
possible moans to prevent the overproduction of coal during the' next
eight months.. "  *
I remain,
' Fraternally yours,

AN OFFICIAL'S
VIEW W THE
(Hi. STRIKE
Bell Hardy   Makes a
Comprehensive
Statement
The official' statement was issued' at
Montreal on behalf of the men by
Mr. Bell Hardy, gen.ral chairman of
th'e Federated Trades of the Median,
ical and Car Department of the C.
P., R. system, and is as follows.
Organised labor has to answer for
many things, and thi action" of the
employees on the Canadian Pacific
Railway in leaving 'their work today
will be condemned by some having
little knowledge ,of the cause, and
caring 1 >bs, and in some instances by
those out' of sympathy with the movement as instanced in thc local morn,
ing English ..sp aking paper. Think,
ing people, however, are fast getting
to understand that b'fore there can
be ,a strike of such, magnitude, there
must be a cause for' dispute, and
while the hi.story of this one lias been
very fully reported in western papers
little has been published of an enlightening nature in this city by those
in a position to influence public opinion. The dispute arose through the
company's abrogating , schedule
agreements on the western lines, and
posting certain .rules in the. shops.
The purpose of this act was recog.
nzed by the m ,n as an effort to reduce
wages, and eventually destroy the or.
ganizations". The men had I been
working hYilf time all winter on western linjs, while on the eastern lines,
where no attack had been made, full
lime had been the rule. This discrim.
ination was believed by the men to
liave for its object the destruction of
organized labor in the west, while the
eastern men lay in fancied security.
.Subsequent events have proven this
belief w.ll founded.
The men east .and .west belonging
to one, - and the same organiziition
determined to resist the attack, but
before anything could be done after
the refusal of the company to with,
draw the posted notices, application
had to be made under the law for an
investigation into the dispute by a
board appointed by. the .government,
es "on western lines. The secondary
cause of the'strike was the d.termiri-
ed oppositin of the company to the
inquiry -and the hindrances thrown
in the way of proper, investigation'.
The immediate cause of th-> strike
was the arbitrary action' of the company in posting notices in the shops
in lieu of a mutually compiled schedule agreement.
(Signed)      - BELL-.HARDY.
CONTRARY TO
LEMIEUX ACT
Ottawa, Aug. 10—The labor d--part:
mentct.iis morning pointed out that
talk of sympathetic strikes by other
railway men's unions to aid the strik.
ing C. P. R. mechanics as has been
suggested would be a violation of the
L mieiix act which says that no strike
can occur in connection with any
public utility, prior to investigation
by the board of conciliation'nnd investigation. This would debar any
union of C P. R. employees' from go.
ing on 'strike now without becoming
liable to severe penalties provid d in
the Lemieux act.
Telegraphers some months ago applied for a board of conciliation to investigate th? alleged wrongful dismissal of an operator at Megantic,
Que. The board has, not yet report,
ed its finding but ii is understood it
will be in favor,, of the men and the
company will hz prevail.d upon to
accept the award. Tlie department
also announced that it is taking no
part in the settlement, of,the strike
at present.

In answer to the criticism, "Why did
the men apply for; a board and then
refuse its finding?' I say, the only
defence organized labor has is the
power to strike, and the law having
deprived us "of that power, we were
compelled to make aplieation for a
board, which was done in April, 1908.
■ The application made by the men
was for a board to investigate and
d.al with questions arising, on both
western and .eastern lines, stating to
the department it wns impossible to
conciliate oiie.hnlf of. the organization while the other half wns,on strike
or disputing with th? company. While
tin. men wore compelled to aHk for n
board, willing or not willing, they
wore also prepared to give tho 'act'
a fair trurl, but on th'e otcr hand the
company oppos d tho application,
and from start lo finish placed ob.
stool es in the way of n proper inquiry.
If this policy of the coinpnjiy1''wii8 for
Ihe purpose of discrediting the "act"
•ind overawing or intimidating the
membero of tlin hoard, it was success,
fill in ii nioiiHiir1, ns u close perusal
of tlie award will disclose. The mil.
jirity finding1* signed by tlu; oh air.
iiiiui of tho.board nud the eoinpnny's
ivprtiHcntfltivc, deal lightly with thu
questions consider'd vital by tlm
men, nnd tn some instance-1 tho con.
nl unions are inconsistent. There is
evidence of snap judgments, lock of
understanding or intollig nt consideration of whnt thiiii* finding meant,
little, attention to detail, the -wholo li?.
ing a weak attempt at compromise.
The minority report subniittd by tho
men's representative shows up many
of tlio inconsistencies, and when both

by either thu company or tho com.
mlttee looking nftor the men's in.
