The Arbitration Court in one and the Wages' Boards in the other, are two very different' pieces of mach inery ; but they arc both worked 011 one common principle, with the pro fessed view of avoiding or settling disputes between employers and em ployed. Each has been proclaimed a distinct success by the oracles of trade unionism—by all, in fact, who advo cate high wages, short working hours, and other privileges dear to the. worker's heart.' On the' other hand, each has been subjected to stringent criticism by those who.appreciate the value of capital invested in local in dustries, and who object to any arbitrary interference with the right of employers to conduct their own business i...
