There is the difficulty. We believe in liberty of opinion and liberty of action within certain limits in this country. I am simply stating how this question appeared to the committee. On the other hand, the ordinary day labourer who is employed in the village factory or in the small store in the smaller urban centres has no difficulty whatever in arranging with his employer for ample time to go out and vote. The relations between employers and employees of that class are so amicable in this oountry that very little difficulty has arisen in respect to voting. I prefer the half holiday for this reason, that it assures the hundreds of thousands of men who are employed in the larger factories and the great industries a half holiday for them to go to the poll, and if they are brought back to work for the purpose of carrying on the operations of the company it entitles them to double pay.
