cents an hour less than in other cities,
and the efficiency system makes it hard
for their incinliers to do the task set hy
employers, the -Machinists' Union said
in a .statement issued December 7 to
justify the strike.
"The machinists offered to stilmtit to
arliitration, which scents to show they
have a justiliahle cause for this strike,"
the union said.
"William Ltlackmaii, of the Depart
ment of Labor, and the State Industrial
Commission, have failed to adjust mat

leaving Cincinnati for other cities," the
The union asks a forly-eie,ht-hour

also are asked."
"Wanes locally are on a par with those
paid elsewhere, and aliovc par with pre
miums and liouuses," August II. Tctieli
tcr, President of the Cincinnati llickford
Tool Company," said in reply.
"Our efficiency system is hased on the
settled fait that all workers are not

most and hest work should net the most
money. We are Hcttine; away from the

HYDRO STRIKE CALLED OFF
Toronto. Canada. The Electrical
Workers' Union has voted to call off
the strike against the htlyro-elcctric
commission, and this municipally con
trolled utility has made a record in that
it is the first to reject an award agreed
to hy a hoard of investigation and con
ciliation appointed by the Dominion gov
ernment under the industrial disputes
This law is intended to check strikes
and lockouts in public utilities. It pro
vides that a strike or lockout is illegal
before a hoard, appointed by the gov
ernment, investigates and reports on
Under this act the electrical workers
asked for the appointment of a board to
consider their increased wage demands.
The board made an award in favor of
the workers, which was rejected by the
commission in charge of this public
utility. To enforce the award of the
government's representatives, the men
They have now declared the strike off
and have accepted less liberal terms
than those favored hy the company's
representative on the conciliation hoard.
The ending of this strike is bound to
have a far-reaching effect throughout
the entire Dominion as it will undoubt
edly increase opposition to an act that
has been declared to be the last word
as a strike preventative in public util
ities. The Industrial Banner, official news
paper of Toronto trade unionists has
this lo say of the hydro-electric com
mission's policy :
"Incidentally it may be stated that the
commission lias handed out the hardest
blow to the Canadian disputes act that
it has ever received. It is well known
that a growing number of the labor or
ganizations are openly antagonistic to
the act, which they insist favors the em
ployers as against the employes. Under
its operation the workers on a public
utility can not go on strike until an in
vestigation is held, and it is pointed out
that sometimes that occupies weeks and
enables the employers to prepare for
trouble and secure strike-breakers to de
feat the efforts of their employes to
secure better conditions. The action of
the hydro-electric commission will have
a tendency to strengthen the hands of
the element who are in favor of the re
peal of the act."

Des .Moines, Iowa. The State Su
preme Court, in the longest decision
ever filed in that tribunal, has upheld
the Iowa workmen's compensation and
employer's liability act. The Consoli
dated Coal Company of Colfax had re
jected the compensation feature of the
act and was only liable under the em
ployers' liability act. An employe sued
the company and was awarded damages
for injuries by the Jasper County Dis
trict Court. The company, in its appeal,
attacked the constitutionality of the law.
It also held that the lower court had
erred in refusing to permit it to prove
to the jury that it was not responsible
for the accident. The supreme Court
upheld the company in this latter con
tention and remanded the case for re
trial. "In all other respects," said the
court, "the decision below is right and
the vitality of the statute Under con
sideration is hereby affirmed."

Washington. The Committee on In
dustrial Relations, formed hy Frank P.
Walsh, in co-operation with trade union
ists and others who recognize labor's
leadership, will hold its first formal
meeting at the headquarters of the com
mittee in Washington. December 11.
Members of the committee are now put
ting the finishing touches to the bills
which Congress will he asked to pass in
order to strike down the abuses ex
posed hy the Commission on Industrial
Relations, with especially reference to
the forces that block labor in its effort
to organize. One of the most important
of these measures is intended to pro
hibit the importation in interstate com
merce of strikebreakers, armed guards
and machine guns.
The A. I, of L. Convention at San
Francisco had this to say of the new

of the United States Commission on In

port and co-operation of the proposed

with the fundamental principles of trade
unionism, as expressed in and hy the
