July 20, 1903 (9th Parliament, 3rd Session)



Among the reasons set forth in the communication sent to me, one was that peace had been restored, and that it was not deemed expedient to bring the two parties, who had so recently been in hostility, into court again. There had been a long strike between employer and employee, and a great deal of trouble had been occasioned, loss of money, people had gone away, industry had suffered, and people were heartily sick of the trouble and wanted peace. It was thought that to bring these two hostile parties together again and inquire into the causes of their quarrel in the past, would have a bad effect, and would disturb the harmony that had been restored.
