SWIMMING' AM) CARELESSNESS
The accident near Riverside park
yesterday when a young girl ot this
'city came neat losing her life by
drowning, should be sufficient warn'
Ing to parents to keep a close watch
on their children. The parents ot
the girl in question are not especial
ly to blame other parents, many ot
them give their children equal priv
ilege, to go to the river alone. This
should not fce done unless the chil
dren are accompanied by some one
- who is a good swimmer. However,
an error was. made-ln yesterday's ae-
count ot the accident. It happened
about 150 yards above the regular
swimming pool and not In front of
. the bathhouse.
The railroads have this motto: "A
careful person Is the best insurance."
It's good one, and should be pasted
In .every home. Parents should take
precaution before an accident hap-
. pens not afterward. :
The swimming pool at Riverside
park is a safe one as safe as one
could be, and still be a good swim
ming pool. There are no treacher
ous currents, undertow, quicksand
or "jump-oifs," but the water at that
point In the Rogue flows smoothly
. along at a alow rate. It "has no ter
rors for those who can swim, and
those who cannot swim are able to
gradually wade out for a consider
able distance before getting beyond
,thelr depth. But "seeing how far
they can wade out" is a poor prac
tice for those unable to navigate the
surface of the water without sub-
. merging, and even those who can
"swim a little" should never under
take the uncertain unless accompan
ied by an expert swimmer who re
mains close at their side.
Everyone should learn to swim.
No person knows when that time
will come when they will Ibe compel
led to swim a few strokes or perish.
Go down to the river and let some
good swimmer take you Into about
three and a half feet of water and
. teach you the art. It might prove

Winnipeg, Manitoba, (Aug. 12. A

A short tlmo ago the Winnipeg

charter of the Winnipeg Trades and
Labor Council nnd announced that
an effort would be made 1o form a
now council In Winnipeg to include
the local organizations opposed to
the One Big Union plan.' Amoug the
organizations which rejects this
idea of having One Bin Union were
the rnllrond brotherhoods and tho
American Federation of Labor.
Some Canadian newspapers assert
that the split In the labor ranks was
precipitated by the alien element and
say that the One Big Union organ

government release all "political
