I have not that information, and it would be to a very large extent guess work, as I think my hon. friend will appreciate. The alleged damage to property, if any, and the loss of wages and all of these things would be mere matters of conjecture. However, I have here a memorandum that indicates the time lost and the number of men who were out of work during the year on two big coal mining strikes in Nova Scotia. In the strike from August 14 to September 5th, eighteen days, 14,353 men were out and the time lost represented 258,354 days. In district No. 18 from April 1st to August 28th, 124 days, 7,538 men were out and the time lost represented 931,960 days. The total time lost therefore was considerably over a million days.
. Mr. GUTHRIE: That is the loss in wages?
Mr. MUitDOCK: No, that is the loss of days^ and I presume that if you averaged that at $5 a day you could find the approximate total amount of money involved.
