The troubles between tlio conductors and trainmen nnd the 0. P.  Ii. show the necessity of mil way  employes combining for their own  defence and .protection, and fully  justify members of the U. Ii.

We say unhesitatingly tlie existing difliculty shows the  other organisations! should back up  tlie U.

This is what might bo  expected from Manager McNicoll's  management. The .increase asked  for is justified, as cost of living has  increased .'30 per cent. Tho position  of (he conductors and trainmen in  this struggle shows that under  Manager McNicoll the ,C. I\ R. is  one of the most backward roads on  the continent in,meting out justice  to its employes. Tho company lias  in its servico a body of men of  whom any employer might well bo  proud and the men have a right to  expect fait'' treatment.

UNFAIR CHARGES.'   ���������  \VliiIc the Ross land Miner is a  first-class newspaper it' is grossly  unfair to public men in its editorial  columns. It publishes a violent  attack on Hon. Col.. Prior, charging  him with violating'his promise to  repeal tlie t.wo per cent. tax. The  premier,is as loyal to that pledge  today as when he first gave it.  Then the Miner charges- the member  for North-east Kootenay with being  a tool of the C. I'. R. and declares  only a man.backed by the C. P. lit  can be elected in that constituency.  Tho absurdity of this is evident'to  those who know the C. J'. R. withdrew, G. McL. Brown from Victoria  as its executive agent because he  failed to steer, the 'chief commissioner as the ,.company wished,  while in North-east Kootenay the  electors are mainly small farmers,  ranchers, lumbermen and miners,  forming one of the most independent constituencies in the province,  and one in which (lie C. P. R. has  less influence than manv others.  ARBITRATION   AND   CONCILIATION.  Eastern and English papers have  been "decrying   tlie   Now   Zealand  compulsory arbitration and conciliation  law  as   a   failure owing to  furniture   manufacturers   shutting  down   their  factories   rather   than  agree  to  the  award  of   the  arbitration court ordering an  increase  of wages to the men.    New Zealand  papeis to hand  show  ,the, reports  circulated in  Canada., are a  gross  perversion of  the.truth.   The fads  are   briefly . these:    A < furniture-  makers' union  iiu 0110 part applied  for an increase in wages. ;The arbitration court ruled  in  favor of tlie  demand and the employers accepted  tlie award on - condition   it should  be the rate fixed'for  other portions  of the country.    The  union  where  a'less  rate  was   paid   applied   to  have wages  of  ils members  raised  to that  standard,   and   tho   arbitration  court   grnnlccl   the   application, thus establishing a uniform  scale of wages for tho trade.    Now,  to any reasonable 'man, that seems  just and fair.    Jitit   the  employers  affected by ,tho  JaUci"-decision-refused to accept it)  shut down their  factories, and  dismissccl'lhoiiMnen.  The government,are  now prosecuting these .employers   for   breaking  the law find it is pointed out that if  employers are going   to  take such,  an unfair stand   there   is  no other  course open but the nationalisation  of industry.    Jf  this  sJiould  comb  about it will   bo  the   realisation of  'the socialist, industrial ideal.  Chamberlain's Pain Balm.

We congratulate Magistrate Russell on the stand he has taken to  put down the practice of poisons  carrying fire-arms. C.P.R. specials  should be prohibited from this  practice as well as others.  Several papers dub the bill  brought in by the Prior government  to validate order-in-council cancelling grants to C. P. R. of South-east  Kootenay coal and oil lands as the  '' Repudiation Rill." If a mistake  ha.- been made, by which the C. P.  R. might benefit from a wrong to  the province, any bill necc-'sarv to  rectify that mistake is just "and  right and is no  "repudiation bill."

R. domination of  the government of this province,  and the downfall of 'the old clique'  with whom all thing- were possible."  R. ft. strike has been the murder at  Vancouver   of   Rodgers,   a   union  leader.    A C. P. R.  special   policeman and a company's freight hand  who both carried  guns- ^yere under  arrest in connection with the affair.  Had the foul deed been perpetrated  by the strikers the C. P. R.   would  have raised a howl from one end of  Canada to the other about riot end  bloodshed, and   would   have called  on    the   government   to   .-end   out  militia to quell the liot.    But when  tlie outrage appears   to lie  at   the  company's own door it is a different  matter.    This incident enforces the  stand we   took  both   in   the track  men's strike and this   that it i-. the  duty of the government to maintain  law and order and that no  corporation should be allowed to assume  this  function   oi   government     In  the   trackmen's  strike  an    Italian  was   killed   by  a   C. P. R. special.  From the nature of   their business  these specials are  too  often drawn  from the lowest class   of   men and  are the last who should be entrusted   with   the  maintenance  of   law  and order.    The mini.-lor of justice  who will   tnke   this   matter up nnd  put   an   end    to   the   corporation  .-pccial police system   will earn the  gratitude of all law-.ibiding people.

It. the committee.- of the.-c organisations have waited on the officials for two month.-, and have;  been unable to get any kind of  satisfaction. The committee of tho  Pacific division has now to go to  Winnipeg to join i-'suc with U10  committee there in fighting tho  matter in its endeavor to obtain  fair consideration for ils members,  and may have lo beard .Manager  McNicoll in his den at Montreal,  where he will be presented with tho  alternative of yielding or facing a  strike   which,   if    brought   about,  DJSCRISJ)ITA BLK  ATTACK.  Wc.are  surprised ' to  sec in the  Trackmen's Advocate an attack on  President Estcs  of  the VJ.'M. R. JC.  It is still fresh in memory how, less  than two years   ago, the 'trackmen  had to go on strike,  and   maintain  the strike for four, months in order  (0 obtain   their  demand  for  more  than the U. Ji. R. 10; is now asking.  We supported the trackmen in that  struggle," believing their cause to be  light.    During the strike   the company, treated   the   trackmen  in tlie  same .discreditable , way 'in which it  is treating the men  involved in the  present strike. An irritating system  of espionage was kept up; the track  was .-manned   by   armed   special.-  largely, consisting   of   the  scum of  the country;   lying   telegrams were  circulated     'Slating      men      had  gone   back    to    work    at    points  where       they       remained     solid;  false reports   of   riot  and violence  were circulated; the alien labor law-  was flagrantly   broken;   scab  labor  was packed along the   road in cars  guarded   by  special   police; a disgraceful attempt wa.-   made to gaol  President   Wilson.    The  story   of  the trackmen's  strike   is   being repeated   in   the   U. Ii. R. E.  strike,  even to the attempt   to gaol President Kstes.    The  public  and   the  other " organisations     helped   the  trackmen, even   the  then unorganised men of the road now in the [".  13. R. K. contributing to   their support.    The trackmen   were  glad to  get   that  support   and    without it  could not have succeeded.    We say  therefore   it  come-, wilh   very bad  taste from tho Trackmen's Advocate  to attack   a   body  of   men fighting  for even les* right-   than the trackmen fought   for  and   suffering' the  same wrongs as Ihe trackmen corn-  plained of at the hands of the C. P.  fi.    We hope the local lodge-of the  trackmen   wil.l    pa-s     resolutions  showing they   repudiate   the stand  taken by the Advocate, and expressing  sympathy   with   their   fellow  employes now   going   through   the  same bitter struggle as they pa-?ed  through.
