Winnipeg's Big General Strike In
M.W.of A.
Prom William Ivens, editor of
the . Western Labor News, The
District Ledger has received a
lengthy story on "The Winnipeg
Strike in Retrospect." We regret that wc cannot get tke complete story in type and would suggest to .those of our readers who
are interested to send to The
Western Labor News, 400 Chambers of Commerce, Winnipeg, for
recent issues of that publicaion,
or, better still, send their annual
subscription to the "paper with a
sttrong punch."
Mr. Ivens clearly details tlie
events leading up to thc great
strike and shows that about 35,000
in all struck work "including hundreds who, under the present
craft union system, found no
place in which they could fit. However, they wanted to assist the
striking builders, cts., and
wallked out individually."
He callls 'attention to the low
crime record during the first six
weeks of the strike flue to "the
constant appeal of the leaders for
the keeping of perfect order."
"There was no disorder until
the regular police were dismissed;
they would not sign the slave pact,
a document wherein they were required to say that they would jpin
no sympathetic strike and affiliate
with no Trades and Labor Council.
When these men were replaced
by fifteen hundred special police
tlie trouble began. These were
assisted by mounted police and
militia called upon by the Mayor
during the process of a peaceful,
but prohibited, parade ofr etunied
"Tho night before the general
strike was called the financial
magnates met and appointed themselves as in organized opposition
under" the suggestive nonde plume
^f-^+Tfr^eitlzSHV Committee  of
tnrtr*  *. -.i        — -
1000." It will be noted that while
the strike committee was made tip
of three delegates elected .by ballot from every union on strike,
together with five persona elected
by ballot fronrthe Tradesnand Labor Council, there was no meeting
of citizens called to appoint the
opposition to the strikers. They
appointed themselves and then
said tbey represented the 'Citizens'."
After a scathing exposure of
the manner in which the self appointed "citizens' committee"
carried on its campaign of "slander,, villlflcation and iibet" all
over itho Dominion, tho United
States and Great Britain, Mr.
Ivens proceeds:
"When the press campaign did
not succeed of itself in crushing
the strike. When it was evident
that the workera could not bo di-
vided from the leaders whom they
by vote had elected. And when
they were not starved out in two
weeks, and in three weeks, as had
been predicted, then other anJ
sterner methods had to be adopted.
So, as a last desperate resort, some
hall dozen of the leaders were
torn from their beds in the middle
of the night by order of the government, through the instigation
of A, J. Andrews, chief spokes-
man of fhe committee of 1000, ar*
rested, and rushed into tbe penitentiary without trial."
"It would never do for the committee ot 1000 to have It thought
these arrests were made to crush
tbe strike, ao a charge of seditious
conspiracy was trumped up a-
gainst a number of men. To make
ft look right, a number of'Aliens"
wen Included in the charge. It is
a fact thet some of these men bad
never seen or beard of oach otber
before the armts; it is also trat
tbat tbe authorities had no vestige
of evidence against the men sr.
raited, eo bad te seareb their
homes, and, when no evidence was
secured tbere. w*« compelled to
search the wh.nU: dominion for
support evidence, but tboso things

had also made revolutionary statements. There was a "Eed Five"
that were intriguing for the overthrow of the state. This threatened reign of terror needed drastic
handling. Yet it must be done circumspectly or the people might
really rebel and there wonld be
a real, instead of an imaginary rebellion so the 1000 had to act.
If these English and Scottish
agitators coulld be deported the
whole industrial problem of the
Dominion would be solved. But
the snag was how to deport persons who were British born.
Clearly it had to be done under
the Immigration Act.  But at present it was impossible, and only
two days before it had been a*
mended and was now out of thc
way.   It could bc reamended only
by unanimous   consent   of   the
House.   This would be impossible
if the members understood what it
was aimed at. so an innocent appearing amendment had to be conceived that would be equal to the
demand.   This was re.idy to hand
and the thing was inmost done
when a member of tlu- House almost spilled the beans by asking in
his innocent  way  what  bearing
these new amendments had on the
Winnipeg strike situation.    The
bland answer was that, they had
no bearing whatever on the strike
situation, and, good man that he
was, he was satisfied.
Sufficient to say that under the
amendments it i.s now possible for
British born persons to be tried under the Act in secret, without the
accused being present at the enquiry. The press and the public can
be excluded; there is no real court,
no trial by jury, and no appeal to
any judge or court in the land.
"Tho strike leaders were told

was there in this cry?
"To the strikers, the idea that
the 1000 were the friends of law
and order was impossible in view
of their steadfast effort to1 place
the city under martial law by the
ridiculing, maligning and libelling
of the regular police and their insistence on the establishment of
martial law.
"Yet '.there' was something behind their fears. ■ %8£did not
enlist in volunteer militia corps,
and sleep in churches, just for fun.
Theyhad genuine, fears of revolution. They were really afraid tho
present system might bo overthrown by violence. Not that
there was the slightest sign of rev-
j olution anywhere. The court record ought to have convinced them
but it did not.

the strike leaders, that they would
be tried under the Immigration
Aet and would be deported if the
enquiry committee so decided.
"Furthermore, these men were,
in the penitentiary, shaved early
on the following morning, or the
next morning but one, for the purpose of appearing at this deportation committee.
"Then a cog must have slipped,
for the Immigration committee
dropped out of sight. It is evident
that the government had gotten a
bad scare from some source. It
had changed its mind. The deport
ation proceedings wore dropped.

is true. These are tho persons who
through the war have profiteered
on blood. Their unholy millions
were supposedly in 'jeopardy.
Therefore, as one of their organs
said, the plot must be overthrown
even though half the population
was wiped out in the process.
"They knew the cost of living
had been increased by their pi of?

only by organizing for collective

which the big corporations con-

a finish as they have openly boasted. This "beating" was not designed to be on tlie apparent issue
of the strike but on the attitude the

either tliey will slavishly submit
to the dictation of the powers
that be in regard to the organization to which they must belong

fight to the bitter end.
We believe that the workera of
this District wM stand firm.
We know that they haye behind them the mine workers oi*

that they "shall use all our influence to bring all the workingmen
of Canada into one organization so
that they can take united action

advantages as they thcmselyefc

These are the days for the men
of District 18 to stand firmly together. Petty differences of opinionmust'all be forgotten in the

with the contempt they deserve.

Interviewed by a Calgary paper'
yesterday Secretary Ed. Browne
spoke what we believe is the unanimous feeling of the workers,
and we quote from that report:
-Miue officials representing the strikers of District No. 18 are now prepared for a resumption of negotiations
toward a settlement of the differences
which hare tied up tho district since
-Ma..- 24 last. This statement Was given
out this morning by Edward Browne,
secretary of the United Aline Workers of America in District No. IS, and
he said that the miners are ready to
accept order 124 as Issued by \V. II.
Armstrong, director of coal operations
in Canada, and it was on this point
that thd trouble arose almost two
months ago when the strike was called
The main difference, which *Mr.
Browne contends ls now separating
the minefi and Mr. Armstrong is tho
stand taken that the government
should dictate to the men what organization they should belong to.

,<wu Mr. Browne this morning. We are
in good standing with the International, but the last agreement which
waa made between District No. 18 and
Coal Commissioner' Armstrong was
made direct, aad not throngh the International.
'Mr. Brown? says that the coal commissioner wants tne International to
vouch for the officers ot Distriot No,
18 before any negotiations are taken
up for a'new agreement, and it Is proposed that the International should
come In and mako out tho agreement,
under which the miners of this district
would operate for the next two years
or whatever term tho agreement might
specify. This will not be considered by1
the miners, and so lonj as the commU-
sioner thinks thst the government can
dictate to these miners what labor organization they belong to, there will bo
no chance of a settlement, according
to iMr. Browne.
"We have alwayw dealt over and
above bosrd with the government and
ths operators," went on Mr. Browne,
"snd we ara prepared to do the same
tame in tbe future. A referendum voto
is always taken among the dlfforont
locals before any agreement Is ac

world was all love and happiness and
joy ouce more, tbe world that had! been
shrouded in the gloom of ber great sorrow tor so many years. So great was
ber Joy that for the moment she forgot
the sad message tbat awaited Meriem.
She called to Tarzan after he had
ridden away to prepare her for it, bnt
be did not hear and rode on without
knowing of it himself.
And so, an hour later, Korak the
Killer rode home to his mother, the
mother whose image bad never faded
In his boyish heart, and found in ber
arms and her eyes the love and forgiveness that be pleaded for.
Aud then the mother turned toward
Meriem, an expression of sadness erasing the happiness from her eyes.
"Sly little girl," sbe said, "in tbe
midst of our happiness a great sorrow
awaits you-Mr. Baynes did not survive his wounds."
The expression of sorrow ln Meriem's
eyes expressed only what sbe sincere*
ly felt, but it was not the Borrow of a
woman bereft of her best beloved.

"Wbat proof did the Arab bring that
she was your daughter?" asked Lord
(irey stoke.
"None," replied the other. "That «s
why we thought best to consult yon
before organizing an expedition. The
fellow had only an old photograph of
ber, on the back of which was pasted
a newspaper cutting describing ber and
offering a reward. We feared that,
having found this somewhere, lt had
aroused, his cupidity and led blm to
believe that in some, way he could obtain the reward, possibly by foisting
upon us a white girl on tbe chance
tbat so many years had elapsed that
we would hot be able to recognize an
Impostor as such."
"Have you the photograph with
you?" asked Lord Greystoke.
The general drew an envelope from
bis pocket, took a yellowed photograph
from It and handed it to tbe Englishman. Tears dimmed the old warrior's
eyes as they fell again upon the pictured features of bis lost daughter.
Lord Grey8t3ke examined the photograph for a moment A queer expression entered bis eyes. He touched
a bell nt his elbow, and an instant later n footman entered.

Tremendous destruction of forests has been going ou for several weeks in Alberta and British
Columbia. This week has seen
Pernie enveloped by flames and
smoke and the upper timber on
Mount Proctor has been almost
completely destroyed. On Wednesday night the spectacle of the
burning mountain sides was magnificent but it was magnificence
at a tremendous sacrifice of natural resources. '
The forestry department of the
government is exerting great efforts for the prevention and check
of forest fires but when a lengthy
.dry period comes their work seems
to be unavailing. °
Iu every package of a popular
cigarette is a slip which say? that
each package pays seven cents towards the cost of the war. It would
not be amiss, perhaps, to tack on
another seven cents on each package as the way of getting partial
payment for the forest fires caused
by the carelessly thrown away
cigarette butts.
Another great cause of fires is
the thoughtlessness of picnic parties. The average hunter and camper is careful but the children who
are allowed to wander off into the
bush and along the stream banks
on picnics do not realize the danger that follows their use of
matches. It may yet become necessary to issue permits for all picnics, however small, and to keep
strict supervision on the carrying
of matches into the bush or forest.
But there is aribther factor often
overlooked. In our present system
of "production for-profit" the
lumber concerns fail to remove
the deadwood and brushes they
remove the forests. This accumulation soon becomes dangerous
tinder and a constant menace to
the,remaining trees. If ever the
forests really become the property
of the people and production is
carried on, on the bgsis of use,
rather than profit, real conservation of natural resources can be
loooked for. Capital wants "div-
dend-producing" timber just as it
wants "dividend-producing" coal
Mighty forests have been wasted
__and limitLesa^oaLjreas-destgoyoA
Tn the struggle for "cheap" products. The system under which we
live is wasteful beyond description
but the present owners of the
country want that system to continue little caring how much our
natural resources arc wasted or
how severe is the struggle of those
who don't own the country to
even eke out an existence.
"Desolation," lament the humanitarians.
"Paralysis," answer the economists. N
Bankers, financiers, captains of
industry—the shrewdest observers
of economic facts, come back from
Europe with the same story. 'If 1
were to try to put into words what
I sum up as the most essential
thing to grasp about-the situation
in %rope.'' says Frank A. Van-
derlip, "the two words would be
paralyzed industry." Mines are
flooded; factories are closed; labor is scattered; markets are disorganized; credit is shattered;
transportation is disrupted;—the
wjfiole fabric of industry, by
means of which the people of Europe were fed, clothed, and provided with the necessaries and
comforts of life has been destroyed, not only in the countries that
were devastated by battles, but in
all of the countries that took
part inthe war. At the end of five
years of war European industry
is at a standstill.
Force was tried to the uttermost, and now the best brains are
trying to undo the damage; many
are convinced that i* cannot be
undone, but that it will wreck the
capitalistic civilization that relied
upon it for salvation.
Where lies the hope of the world
todayMn force? No-' The hope of
the world lies in the capacity of
the Labor Movement to build the
structure of a new civilization inside the tottering walls of the old
one. Labor has overthrown autocracy in Russia and bureaucracy in Germany. Labor is striving to redeem England, France
and Italy,—striving, through solidarity, to mend the yawning gaps
and rents that force has made in
the texture of civilizaii:>n.
"Will the Labor Movoment succeed? Can it stave oft" chaos and a
new "dark age" of social convalescence? Time will answer. Meanwhile, let those who have eyes to
see "take note of the ghastly results of the philosophy of force to
the uttermost that inevitably follow when force is applied to the
uttermost.—Scott Nearing.

. The futility of any attempt at secrecy in the conduct of a labor
organization was well shown last week following the two meetings
held by the miners. From the report in the Fernie Free Press it was
evident that the coal company has under its thumb, either for monetary reward, or the hope of a favored job. a man whose duty it is to
keep the company fully informed in regard to meetings of the men;
to point out to the company those who are too radical or who seem
to have too great a degree of influence with the workers.
As a matter of faet, the workers of Gladstone Local have done
nothing or said nothing of which they need be ashamed and a."spy"
can do them no injury. The company has shown discretion in selecting a man for their informant who is of more than average ability
and cunning and he will doubtless see to it that his reward is forthcoming. The time was, when workers were prepared to treat roughly
a spy when one was located (as the ONE we refer to has been Ideated)
but those days have passed and the honest men of the local haye no
desire of taking the law into their own hands
But tliey do not forget.

In the same issue of the Free Press, in which appears the report
of the two meetings, there is also an article on "The Strike Situation."
The report and the article are both products of the pen, or typewriter,
of the-Crow's Nest Pass Coal Company's office; both are well written
and both are very illuminating. It is refreshing to hear the Company
state that the men's agreements in the past have "been kept in good
faith" and also to read how "sympathetic" they are towards the firebosses, whose position, they declare, "is far from enviable." /fhe
paternal spirit of the entire article is quite pathetic but the pathos is
clouded over by the black hyposrisy which would attempt to besmirch the "repute and established integrity" of the officers of District 18. .'.«:■.'. . .    ■
Nova Seotia miners, many of
them idle and others working only
two or three days a week, have
started an agitation regarding the
use of American coal by the Gov-
The management of the coal company speaks of the present
strike being "engineered" by the District officers and would convey
management fought against an eight hour law in British Columbia
the impression that it was uncalled for and unnecessary.. The same
and when that law went into effect was among the first to, violate, it.
The District took the stand that the law did not contemplate any reduction in wages whatever and were advised from Victoria that such
a stand was justified. The matterr was practically settled but the
Crows Nest Pass Company held out in regard to men who had previously been working ten and eleven hour shifts. The District
officials would not yield the principle. Tlie Director of Coal
Operations (whose decisions in matters of moment and principle
have nearly always favored the operators) issued Order No. 124
which carried a reduction for the* men who had previously been working .ten and eleven hours. The District refused to accept the order.
The minister of labor endorsed the action of the Director of Coal
Operations. The District then asked for an investigation into the
cases of the men involved and the Director of Coal Operations said
he would grant such investigation and make it with his two assistants provided the District would Be bound by their findings. The
Dsitrict refused to be bound by the findings of such a commission
and the strike followed.
Once upon a time a boy named Billy'i'ound during liis
travels an old disused mine that had annexed to it some
railroad tracks.. Later he found somo wheels, aud built
himself a ear. Up the track some hundred feet he pushed
itj and found that it travelled back oi its own volition.
All his friends wanted to ride, and,he, being a budding financier, made'them pay with bats and balls and
all the other things considered by boys to be wealth.
By and by Billy owned all the'jnarbles, all the bats
and balls in Boy-town. Then business got poor. Still, the
boj's were there. Still they wanted rides—but Billy had
all the wealth. So Billy said,'"I guess this must be what
Dad calls a panic; I shall have to get these bats and balls
in circulation again."
• So he offered to pay the boys in bats aud balls to
build him a depot, cleaning his yard, whitewashing his
fence and weeding his garden, and he paid thein well.
The toy* all cime back lo him f >r railroad rides, and
Billy found that he had all his chores done and still he
owned the road and all the wealth of Boy-town.
By and by business grew dull again. "Another
panic," he said. "How can I stop it?"
About this time the other boys got discontented and.
organized. They collected wheels, boards, etc., donated
labor, and built themselves a railroad.
Billy's railroad grew rusty, so he went over to see
Vhat the boys were doing. Every boy took turns at riding and pushing, and they wero having a fine time.
"I guess I'll ride," said Billy, and he 'offored tbem
marbles in payment.       ,
"That don't go on this line," they answered. "If
you want to ride, Bill, you have got first of all to push.
Only labor talks here."

following reply was sent:
Hon. G. D.:'Robertson, Ottawa.
Dear Sir:
Yours of July 2nd to hand with
.ropy of letter to Robert Baxter enclosed.
I have read very carefully the
statement in regard to the pur-
chaw of coal Irom tlio mines of
Novo Scotia by thc C. N. G. and I
most say it is truly disappointing.
While returned Nova Scotia Sol-
dier miners walk around idle
cheap coal dug by "Huns and
Hunks" in the United States is
being used on the "peoples." road.
It is nothing short of down right
shame that one ton of American
coal should be used cast of Mon-
treal until all our miners are fully
employed. I am,
Yours truly,

Iu m recent address ou Democracy, as we learn from the Christian Commonwealth.Bernard Shaw
illustrated bis point by telling this
story, an old story, he admits:

That, in brief is the history of ftllqhft-Llflhglnaepinf^-^rHWy
tBe^StncToffiicals are concerned. It would be interesting to have
uncovered all the "engineering" that took place between the executive of Iho Western Coal Operators' Association and the Directors of
Coal Operations and* his assistants. It would be interesting also to
have recorded the expressions of delight with which the coal producing, branch of the C. P. R. as well as of those "in the know" of
the Crbws Neat Pass Coal Company welcomed a cessation of work.
The smaller coal interests of Alberta were not so jubilant but they
have been more or less pacified by being told that now is a good time
to "break tip the Ono Big Union idea," which the public have been
told means Bolshevism and that Bolshevism means public ownership of women, etc. The operators are gravely alarmed for the
sanctity of women.
There are certain men in Dittrict 18 who the operators would
like to seo eliminated. There is an anxiety on the part of those who
own and control our coal mines to have "sane men" in control of
labor affairs. They are not anxious to have honest men, men whose
first thought is towards-: the interests of the workers as a body.
The "sanity" they desire is a willingness to have tho workers kept
in subjection and when they are smitten upon one cheek to be always
ready to turn the other. The operators want men in labor affairs
who will be willing to preach ''servants obey your masters" and who
have had petrified into their minds the idea that "the poor ye have
with you always." It is not good for the operators or for profiteers
of any description to have men in the ranks of labor who have ideas
or ideals; men who believe that the present system of production
and distribution is wrong and must bo changed.
It will ba interesting to watch hour th* elimination of "undeiir-
ablea" will be proceeded wtth,
There is a close connection kept np between thc financial interests controlling tbo mines and Edmonton, Ottawa and
Victoria. From Edmonton tbe chief mines inspector has been out
endeavoring to break tbe strike. At Victoria the Crows Nest Pass
Coal Co. received a promise to keep hands off until the men wer*
beaten. At Ottawa on Saturday last we find Sir Robert Borden
bemoaning the faet that "in British Columbia a lnrgo smeltiner **■
toUinhtrntit in unable to continue its business for lack of ok<> whieh
cannot be supplied owing to strikes in the mining districts." A
very little investigation ou Sir Robert's part would have shown
him that less than a half a cent a ton additional would have kept
up the supply of coal and be could also bave discovered an interna-
ing connection between the smelting interests and the mining inter-
wts and their willingness to cease production in the hope of breaking the spirit and unity of the workers.
Sir Kohert. in the speech to which we have referred, pleads f«r
trouble* to be "settled by peaceful methods and without constant
interruption for the nation's task." Would not the appointment ..f
an unbiased commttaion have been a peaceful settlement of the present airika In District Wt Tht appointment of such a eommiMb-n

However, nothing came of the movement, because labor at lhal

Coming back to Calgary a call
would have to be made on the
District offices where Secretary
Browne would be delighted to
show the prince the safe in which
the mounted police* failed to find
aiil details of a revolutionary plot
and a few million rubles. If it
so happened that President Christophers was in the office when the
visit was made we are sure he
would have no objection to putting on his silk hat and acting as
guide to the party down into Sun-
ay Southern Alberta and through
the Cro.w. Taber would have to be
visited and a call made on Sandy
McRoberts for the prince is fond
of the Scotch.
But here let us pause a moment.
We slipped by the Drumheller valley in our suggested itinerary. It
would never do not"to have the
prince go into Rosedale and see
that man Moody the man that has
made Rosedale famous—what for
we needn't say.     But there are
some good men up in that valley
and the prince would find him a
far more loyal subject than lots of
tlie same name on the green isle
itself. At Wayne he would find
Secretary Kent leady with a real
Royal Highness is fond of macaroni, cooked in its most delicious
manner our friend Cacchioni, despite the high cost of living, would

Coming back to the south again.
Leaving Taber President Christophers would   probably take the
prince to Lethbridge and there he
would find Charlie Peacock, who,
though English by birth, has the
reputation of being able to understand umpMeen dialects from all
over Kurope. From Lethbridge the
route woidd be through the Crow
with probable stops at Blairmore,
Bellevue, Hillcrest and Colemau.

The Home Team carried no passengers. All played well and ii woud be

On Wednesday »v«ning at Fernie
before a disappointing crowd Michel
footballers went down to-their first
defeat at the hands of the Teamsters.
TEAMSTERS — Sawyers, Booth
and J. Riley; Brindle, W. Riley and
Mills; Wheeler, Dicken, Jolnson, Thornton and Robson.
IMICHEL '—- Guesit, Jenkins and
Holmes; A, Travers. G. Travers and
Weaver; Ball, H. Travers, Yates,
Brown and McGovern.
REFEREE—Sweeney, Fernie.
From the kick-off it was tvident that
the Teamsters were out to win and the
Michel defense had a trying time of
it for fifteen minutes. Shots from all
quarters found tho Michel goalie equal
to the ocasion. Tcimsics forwards
were playing fne football, especially
thu left wing and centre forward, Yates
tried hard to force his way through
the Teamsters defsuse, but he war,
always pulled up before he could get
within scoring distance. The home
half backs were playing a brilliant
game and it took tho .Michel lor wards
a long time to get going and .hen thoy
were up against a dour pair of back:!
who took no chances. After twenty-
five minutes play the Teamsters scored
Robson carried the ball down the left
wing and crossed at the right time to
Joiuson; the later player steadied himself and put tha ball out of the reach of
tho Michel goalie. Atihis period of
tho game 'Michel were playing for ull
they were worth to keep down tho
score. W. Riley had two great shots
at goal and it was incKy for Michel
that their goalie was on. tlie spot.
Sawyer so far had only handled the
ball two or thre times so wen woro
the home backs and -half-hacHs playing. There was no further scoring ond
half time found the Teamsters leading
by one goal to nil.
In the second half the Teamslors
were on the defensive, Michel having
the advantage of a stiff breexo which
had-sprung up, and they certainly did
try hard for the equalizer, but the
homo defense wero giving nohing
away. Sawyer brought off one or
two marvellous saves this half.
Yates and he could do nothing against
W. Riley. Booth and J. Riley were
now playing the game of their lives
to keep the "Michel'boys out, aud any-
thing that passed them found Sawyer j to even the score again, did some dar-
always at hand. Yates had hot found i ing base running which cost them the
things to his liking, and at tfcroe mm-! game and the score stood 5-4 in favor

It ia with d«op regret that we have
to announce the death of Janws Mercer by drowning in Carbon Creek on
Saturday last Before the strike -Air,
Mercer was engaged as a fireboss iu
8 mine, iMichel. All those who knew
him esteemed him most highly. He
was a man ever ready to help at any
time, a man well liked by his fellows.
It appears that when fishing at the
falls on Carbon Creek he fell down
the steep side of th'e canyon and his
hea<l must have struck the rocks rendering him unconscious or partlallly so
His body was found in about a foot
depth of water 100 yards farther down
stream which would indicate that he
must have struggled hard in a semi-
unconscious state for life because it
Is agreed that there was not sufficient force of water to have washed
a dead body down so far in such shallow water.
The funeral was very largely attended by the numerous friends who
had known him for many years.
The football fans were given a
good show for their money when the
pick of Coleman, Bellevue and Frank
teams visite-d iMichel on Saturday
Uast. The home team were well satis-
fled to play a drawn game (3 goals
each) with such a combination of
players opposed to them. After the
match a good smoker was arranged
at the Soldier and Workmen's Club
and we feel surethat the Coleman
boys will come again.
The engineers, feeltng that a settlement of the strike was in sight
tor tMs week have started work at
Michel but since the operators are not
prepared to make an agreement as expected it is nearly safe to say that
those workmen will again be back lu
the fight. -We feel sure that these
men'who have played the game for six
weeks will not act as strike breakers
at this stage; at least we hope not
