PROTECTION OF RAILWAY EMPLOYEES.
Mr. SMITH (Nanaimo) moved for leave to introduce a Bill (No. 114) to provide for the protection of railway employees. He said: The object of this Bill is to provide protection and accommodation for the carpenters who are employed on the different railway systems of this country. They have complained to me that, though they are permanently employed on the various railways, proper accommodation and protection are not provided for them. The object of this Bill is to compel the companies to
provide such accommodation and protection. I understand they are negotiating with the companies at the present time; and though I informed them that it was impossible for this legislation to pass the House this session, they requested that the Bill be presented and printed.
Motion agreed to, and Bill read the first time. ' .
