Canadian Method of voiding Strikes
and Lockouts.
In this issue of the Herald appears the final installmhent of "The Canadian
Method of Preventing Strikes and Lockouts," by the Hon. W. F. Mackenzie
King. To those rwho have carefully read and followed this article through its
length, it will readily appear that Canada has come very near solving the die
tressing problem of the relations between capital and labor. There is no am
biguity in the wording of the act, but on the contrary it is written in plain
and simple language that any man can understand. In its simple analysis, the
act provides for compulsory arbitration whenever disputes between employer
and employee may arise. Each side has the privilege of recommending its own
arbitrator, and the two thus selected choose the third. If either side should
fail to select a representative, then the Minister of Labor appoints one of his
own choosing. The act also provides a penalty for any lockout or strike in
violation of its provisions. That the act has proved efficacious is evidenced by
the great decrease in the number of strikes and lockouts, and in the generally
harmonious conditions existing between capital and labor. It would behoove
some of our labor leaders to foster such legislation both in our state legislatures
and our national congre'ss. Millions of dollars are lost each year through
strikes and lockouts in this country, not to speak of the untold suffering and
misery that inures to the laboring man. With a national compulsory arbitra
tioT, act, built on the lines of the Canadian act, most of these disputes could
be satisfactorily adjusted without resorting to the strike. In Canada the act
has the erdorsement of the leading labor men of that country.
The Trouble in Mexico.
Our neighboring republic of Mexico is again in the seething throes of a
revolution, the scene this time being laid in the capital itself. While old Por
firio I)iaz may not have been all that we might desire in a ruler, however, for
thirty years he ruled his country with justice, though with an iron hand, and
kept the factions at peace with each other. Under his administration the coun
try grew and prospered, and it was more through his antagonism to certain
Wall Street financiers than to the dissatisfaction of his own people that his
downfall came about. Francisco Madero, Diaz' successor to the presidency of
Mexico, has made one continual mess of his administration. The country has
never been at peace since his accession to power, and the country has been
generally going to the dogs. Now, released from prison by his followers,
comes on the scene young Diaz, nephe wof Porflrio, and he throws down the
gauge of battle in the capital city itself. What the outcome will be is proble
matical; whether there will be any improvement in the conditions in Mexico,
whichever side wins, is also problematical; for scattered about Mexico are
half a dozen Generals who aspire to the power of the presidency. In these
United States of America the common people read the news of the daily skir.
mishes, and then forget it. But the almighty press has found something to
howl about, and they are howling. If President Taft and his administration
desired to retire from office showered with praise from this same press, he
would already have our battleships in Mexican harbors, and our soldiers over
running the capital city. But for once in his long career of vacillation and
blundering, President Taft has shown a real spirit of firmness. He has re
fused to intervene in our neighbor's troubles. And in this stand he is un
doubtedly correct. If our nextdoor neighbors get into a pistol duel on the side
walk and we but: in and get it, it is our own lookout. The Americans in Mex
ico City have had ample time to get out of the way, but they have hung on in
the hope of intervention by the United States. If they are killed or wounded
it is their own lookout. The United States has no business mixing in this trou
ble unless some provocation be given to the government itself. The chief duty
of our government at this time is to see that the American citizens still in
Mexico are removed to a place of safety-brought back to their own country,
and if necessary indemnified for any loss of property they may suffer. This
from the news dispatches, seems to be President Taft's idea, and it is sincerely
hoped that he will not be influenced by a jingo press to do something foolish.
He has made many mistakes during his administration, but his present stand
for "hands off" is one that compels admiration from every sensible man.
A Comparison in the Administration
of Justice.
In Gulfport some weeks ago, a negro shot and killed the chief of police in
the early morning hours. Before another sun had set he had been indicted,
tried and sentenced to be hanged, all in an orderly and legal manner.
Last week, in Houston, Miss., a lady was assaulted and murdered by a
negro. A mob, pitched to frenzy by ,burning words, gathered and started out
to hunt the criminal. A negro was caught, and on the testimony of two worth
less negro women, was hung. Soon after suspicion was diverted to another
negro, who upon being arrested and questioned, eonfessed his guilt, and ab
solved the negro who had already been hung from all blame. Thereupon the
second negro uwas chained to an iron pump, tarred, tortured and burned, while
the frenzied mob gloated over the scene.
The Gulfport incident redounded to the credit of the Justice-loving men of
Mississippi, while the affair at Houston leaves a blot of digrace on the fair
name of the state. In the first instance, the law was followed in.every detail
and Justice was satisaed. If the same procedure had been ollowed in the see
end case, justice would have been as well served, and the life of an innocent
man spared. It is presumed that the same mob that lynched the first negro
also burned the second. Their names were given in the press dispatches. The
question is, will Governor IBrewer take any steps to punish the men who
murdered an innocent man. Though black, he was a human being, and was
entitled to a fair and impartial trial. If he had been legally tried he could
have proved his innocence. As it was, he was murdered without compunction.
It is only by vigorous action agalinst this lawless mob that Governor Brewer
can clear the name of his state from this foul stain.
An Epidemic of Crookedness.
As this issue of The Herald goes to press, comes the news of the defalca
tion of another ct our notaries public. The Plain Man has not had time to
inquire into the details, but from the information given out in Wednesday
morning's papers, it seems that Mr. James J. Woulfe has got away with some
thing like $300,000. During the puast few years we have had quite a number of
notariesr public defaulting with their clients' money, not to speak of the bankers
and bank clerks. In the case ci the defaulting notaries it has always been the
small investor who has suffered, and there are numerous houses and lota in
this city for which it is impossible to secure a title on account of the crooked
work of notaries public. The Governor of the state has the appointive power
in the case of notaries, and it would be a good thing for this city and state if
the Governor should appoint an unprejudiced commission to examine the ree
ords of all the notaries public in the state. The honest notary winll approve o(
such a commission and welcome an investigation. This commission could be
made permanent, and would examine the records of the notaries at stated in
tervals. Whenever the crooked work of one of these men is exposed, it is
found that it has extended over everal years. If their records were regularly
examined any crooked work would be immediately expoed, and so save the
victims thousands of dollars. This is offered only uas a suggestion but it seems
that something should be done to check this epidemic of notarial thievery.
Another question that occurs to me is what is t~e cause of all this crooked
bslnesst When' we had races here, everything in that line was blamed to
that factor. But now the races have been gone for several years, and the ob
bery continues. During the past few months Thomas W. Lawson has been
running a series of articles in Everybody's Magazine, In which he claims that
the Stock Exchanges are eaponsible for lill our illh referring particularly to
the New York Stock Exchange. He claims that the money power of the coun
try is centered in Wall Street. sad that the Stock Exchange is one vast gramb

The Canadian Method of Pre
venting Strikes and Lockouts.
ADDRESS DY HoN. W. L. MACxrENzE KIno, Former Canadian Minister ol Labor.
1907, AMENDED 1910.
The act applies to employees in any mining property, agency of transpor
tation or communication, or public service utility, railways, whether operated
by steam, electricity or other motive power, steamships, telegraph and tele
phone lines, gas, electric light, water and power works, and is made applica
ble to disputes with regard to wages, hours and conditions, employment of
children or any class of persons, or dismissal of or refusal to employ any par
ticular person or class of persons, preference to members of labor organiza
tions or of British subjects, materials alleged to be unfit or damage alleged
to have been done to work.
The Minister of Labor in the Dominion Cabinet has general administration
of the act. The Governor-General "In council" appoints a Registrar of Boards
of Conciliation and Investigation, the office to be held either separately or in
conjunction with another public office.
Whenever any dispute exists between an employer and any of his em
ployees, and the parties are unable to adjust it, either of the parties may
apply to the Minister for a board to which the dispute may be referred, and
which is to be established within fifteen days of the application. Every board
consists of three members appointed by the Minister, one on the recommenda
tion of the employer, one on the recommendation of the employees, and one
on the recommendation of these two. If either party neglects to make any
recommendation within five days, the Minister appoints a representative. If
the members chosen on the recommendation of the parties neglect to make
any recommendation within five days, the Minister appoints a third member,
who is the Chairman.
Every member of a board holds office until the report of the board is
signed and transmitted to the Minister. No person may act as a member of a
board who has any direct pecuniary interest in issue. The oath of office of
board members includes that they will not disclose to any person any of the
evidence or other matter brought before the board.
Application for a board is made in writing, accompanied by a statement
setting forth the parties, the nature and cause of the dispute, including claims
or demands made by either party upon the other to which exception is taken,
an estimate of the number of persons affected or likely to be affected, the ef
forts made by the parties to adjust the dispute, and a statutory declaration
that, failing an adjustment, a lockout or strike will be declared, and that the
necessary authority to declare such lockout or strike has been obtained; or,
in case of a trade union located in more than one province and having a gen
eral committee authorized to carry on negotiations in disputes, a statutory
declaration by the Chairman or President and by the Secretary of such com
mittee that, failing an adjustment by reference, there is no reasonable hope
of securing a settlement by further negotiations. The application may men
tion the name of a person willing and ready to act as a member of the board
representing the party applying.
Upon receipt by either party of a copy of the application for a board,
such party prepares a statement in reply and transmits it to the Registrar
and to the other party. Copies of applications or statements in reply, where
the other party is composed of members of a trade union, are sent to the
President and Secretary of such union; and where composed of employees,
some or all of whom are not members of a union, the notice is sent to the
President and Secretary of the union and to ten of the non-union employees
or to two persons if such were authorized to make the application for a board
at a meeting of employees, including those not members of the union.
The board is "to endeavor to bring about a settlement of the dispute, and
to this end the board shall, in such manner as it thinks fit, expeditiously and
carefully inquire into the dispute and all matters affecting the merits thereof
and the right settlement thereof. In the course of such inquiry the board may
make all such suggestions and do all such things as it deems right and proper
for inducing the parties to come to a fair and amicable settlement of the dis
pute, and may adjourn the proceedings for any perilod the board thinks rea
sonable to allow the parties to agree upon terms of settlement." If a settle
ment is reached during the course of reference to the board, a memorandum
of the settlement is drawn up by the board and signed by the parties. If a
settlement is not reached during the course of reference, the board makes a
full report to the Minister, with its findings, including the cause of the dis
pute and the board's recommendation for its settlement "according to the
merits and substantial justice of the case," stating "in plain terms, and avoid
ing as far as possible, all technicalities, what in the board's opinion ought or
ought not to be done by the repective parties concerned."
"Upon receipt of the board's report the Minister shall forthwith cause the
report to be fled in the omce of the Registrar and a copy thereof to be sent,
free of charge, to the parties to the dispute, and to the representative of any
newspaper published in Canada who applies therefor, and the Minister may
distribute notices of the report, and of any minority report in such manner as
to him seems most desirable as a means of securing a compliance with the
board's recommendation." The report, with any minority report, is published
in the Labor Gazette and in the Annual Report of the Department of Labor.
The board has power of enforcing the attendance of witneases, or requir
ing witamnses to give evidence on oath or afrmation, and to produce books,
papers and documents. "The board may accept, admit and call for such evi
deance as in equity and good conscience it thinks fit, whether strictly legal evi
dence or not." Any party to the prjeedings may be compelled to give ev
The board, or any member, or its authorized representative, may "enter
any building, mine, mine workings, ship, vessel, factory, work shop, place or
premises of any kind, wherein or in respect of which any industry is carried
on or any work is being or has been done or commenced or any matter or
thing is taking place or has taken place, which has been made the subject of
a reference.to the board, and inspect and view any work, material, machinery,
appliance or article therein, and interrogate any persons in or aupon any suoh
......premises as aforesaid."
Any party may be represented before the board by three persons or lees,
or by counsel or solicitor with the quallcation noted below. Every party
appearing by representative is bound by his acts. "No counsel or solicitor
shall be entitled to appeal or be heard before the board except with the con
sent of the parties to the disputea, and notwithstanding such consent the board
may decline to allow counsel orkolicitors to appear."
The proceedings of the board shall be conducted in public, but the board
my direct that all persons other than the parties, their represeatatived, the
ocenrs of the board and the witnesses under examination shall withdraw.
Remauneration to members other than the Chairman is $5 a day, not ex
ceeding three days, daring which they may be actually engsaged in slecting

Algiers will see the largest gather
ing of Irishmen and their descendants
on March 16 that has ever assembled
in the Fifth District. The Hibernians,
including the state and county offi
cers and the Ladies' Auxiliary, will at
tend solemn high mass at an hour to
be announced later. The feast of St.
Patrick falls on Monday, and for that
reason it will be observed on the Sun
day previous.
At its meeting Tuesday night the
Algiers Division of Hibernians decided
to give their fellow-members a warm
greeting when they come over the ri
ver. Archbishop Blenk will be pree
ent and pontificate, and Bishop Gunnam,
of Natchez, will also be present. There
will be other priests in attendance,
and the services will be among thq
most notable ever held in the Church
of the Holy Name of Mary.
After the mass there will be a re
ception in the hall, at which a reunion
will be held in good old Irish fashion.
Whenever the Hibernians go to Al
giers they are sure of a cordial recep
tion, and this will not be an exception
to the rule.
- Among the recent acquisitions to
the exhibition of documents to be
found in the Cabildo Museum, on Jack
son Square (Place d'Armes), is a par
ticularly interesting one which has
been deposited by W. H. Seymour, of
Algiers-a land centlcate from the
land Office of the United States made
out to John McDonogh, Jr. The cer
tilcate is dated 1821 and describes
the property m "Lot No. 10, in the
city of New Orleans, measuring 35
feet and 120 deep, French measupe,
and bounded as follows: Front' by
Conde street, and on side by lot No. 9
and on the other side by Hospital
street." This is signed by President
James Monroe.
New Orleans is also indebted to Mc
Donogh for his generoUs legacy to our
public schools that nothing which con
cerns him can fail to interest hun
dreds of eltisens.
It was announced Friday that Gov.
Hall has included the vacancy in the
Orleans School Board in a corrected
call for an election hero April 16.
City Attorney Moore phoned the
