There is a strong undercurrent of

nda,  and so to benefit American   corporations.   It has   to be'  remembered,
however, that generally .strikes are declared by "si local union,  ami  that thc
international    ollicer does not appear
until' conciliation and   negotiation become necessary.     01     course  a strike
cannot    be declared  without the    approval   of the chief  ollicers   of an   international     body,  .   but we   imagine
thnt.,very rarely are these ollicers responsible for labor disturbances except
in-so far as they direct  the    general
organization over   the continent.      It
may .be that in some' cases the inter-
■ national' ollicers   have- handled strikes
unwisely; and have prolonged disputes,
which-   might have  been more easily
settled  if - ihere had been  no    outside
intervention.     ' On the • other     hand,
more than  once  international   oiliccrs
.have     refused    to countenance    local
strikes -iir Canada,      and have forced
ihe'iinioiis  to* submit to   the   authority bf the international body.   In Fernie . the local   union seems   arbitrarily
to have set aside an agreement   with
the employers.   We have,   however, no
evidence that thc trouble was fomented bjriiny,'   ' international  ollicer,    although', it seems    to be  the fact that
uiost    of the union     ollicers'    at the
.  Crow's Xest    mines have conic   from
the "'United ' States.      We, iu Ontario,
know little or nothing of the    causes
which led to the strike at Lcthbridec.

As for. IIaniilt'..n,   it is dillicult to see
how any American interest or corporation could benefit by an attack upon
the street railway. There mayi 'be in-

we, also ha\e international organization of employers, and tlie one is
surely as'legitimate as tlie other. It
is: impossible to say what the future
may develop, but, as yet, we doubt
il the international labor leaders-have
ever contemplated any attack upon
the industries of this country.
cost of the sacrifice of right to might
lhat peace prevails to the extent it
do*.s, and- in so far as the country
s the benefits ot operation ol thc
mines here, , the credit is due to the
forbearance of the ollicials of the unions on both sides of the line.
Another Kl.IOIS which has led. the
Toronto Xews and other good papers
astray, is thai, as the News has it,
"It seems to be the fact llial most
of the union ollicials at the Crow's
N'c.si mines have come from the United  .Stales."
This SI-HOIS is as misleading ' as
the first. The president of district iS
is a native of England, and is a Hril-
1 ish subject; the international board
member for the -district is a native of
N'ova Scotia;' the secretary ditto. The
president" of Gladstone Unio-ii, Kernie,
was an Englishman; thc secretary is
an Englishman. In fact, the Ledger
knows of only one ollicer in either
local or district organization who is
an American, and yet tlie news dealt
out to the press in general makes it
SEEM that lhc officers at Fernie are
from the  United Stales. *
Will the Toronto News please note
this and disabuse the minds of its
readers of what is absolutely untrue.
There was one officer pf -a local
union, not ihe Fernie local, who is
said to be an American, though as to
this lhc Ledger is not certain, who
opposed the strike, and while iu a
:iiost exuberant state of. mind bought

mcinoralists, *   after careful   deliberation,    respectfully  submit the  follow
ing .suggestions for your consideration
in framing   your   report:
From   mere   life insurance  contracts
the tendency in r.-centyears has been
towards a multiplicity of plans    and
options,   iu   which thc  provision    for
death has become  secondary    lo    the
investment  features     of    the  policy.
Competition -amongst companies    has
been  ..thereby  actuated,  and expenses
increased.   Agents are enabled by the
collection of   large premiums,  to    increase their emolulions al the expense
of their    clients,      who,   unaware  of
what     proportion of  their    premium,
should pertain to real insurance,   and
what    to something else,  arc induced
to insure upon plans not iu    keeping
with   their circumstances.    Companies
arc thereby  also  enabled   to secure   a
larger'   amount    of premium  income,
and  give less      insurance,   and    such
plans are,  therefore,  prejudicial to the
interests of  the widows and  orphans,
for whose protection the business has
lieen mainly established.   Your   nit-moralists     believe   that   the numerous
contracts     offered by companies   are
against the principles of sound life insurance, and should be restricted, and
urge   for the   consideration   and    approval of your honors  the restriction
recommended by   the  insurance    commissioners   of the   United "States   for
the standardization of policies.
Altei natively your memorialists
submit that, no form of policy should
be used by any. life insurance company in Canada, without having first
been approved by -the superintendent
of insurance.
Your  memorialists further    suggest
that   your  honors  should   recommend
that all   .policies    should be set

The Ledger reproduces the meiuor
ul presented to the insurance- com-
uissiou of Canada by the policy-

iii its own basis.

copy of the 'application should be attached thereto, and'"(d) that under no
consideration sliould lhc face vnliic of
the policy be reduced, '   ,
further, your memorialists respectfully submit that an -amendment
. hoiild be* made to the present act,
providing that after payment of the
third premium, no policy shall lapse
by reason -of non-payment of prcnii*.
11111s until the value of such policy is
exhausted. This concession is already
granted by sonic, companies, subject
lo notification by the assured, but it
is believed that such rights should
vest automatically,
Vour memorialists believe that the
acceptance by companies of' notes in
settlement of premium's is detrimental'
lo the best interests of the business.
It enables agents to secure advances
from companies and is responsible for
the excessive expense and lapses of
lirst year business,' Many persons are
induced to sign notes unaware of the
na I uic of the obligation into which
they nrc entering,' and companies carry extensive risks for which
110 compensation is received, It is a
menus whereby agents and companies
are enabled lo discriminate against
lertuin classes of policy holders, and.
is ngainsi all sound business principles, Il incoiiragcs Improvident
contracls against wliicli insurance
should be guarded, und instead of being a eniivctiii'iice, in ninny cases
causes a hardship tn the gran ter nf
lhc noli'. Vour ini'iiiorinllsts suggest
Hint cm 11 panics sliould be prohibited
from Issuing any policy until llie lirst
premium has been paid in rash,
Vnnr uiciiii'i'l'ilis!-- suggest tlmt the
ex) ciis:s of life Insurance .companies
should be limited lo llie loading on
premiums. The excesses m which
compniik's lmve rcsni-led to necurc
business are well known. A year's Iih
