The largest number of strikes and lockouts during the nine-year period, 247 or 25.7 per cent, was in the textile industry. The mining industry was next in importance, having 219 or 22.8 per cent of all the strikes and lockouts reported. Of the total number of strikers and employees locked out during the nine-year period 116,326, or 50.4 per cent, were in the mining industry.

The following table shows the strikes and lockouts for the period 1896 to 1900, and for each of the years 1901 to 1904, grouped according to their duration:

The strikes and lockouts during the period were mostly of short duration, 490 of the 880 strikes and lockouts for which duration was reported having lasted 5 days or less, and but 71 over 30 days. Of for which duration was reported 124,811, or 56.2 per cent, were in strikes and lockouts which lasted 30 days or less.

The causes of strikes and lockouts are shown in the original reports for each year of the nine-year period, but the results by causes are given only for the first five years. For this reason two tables follow, the first showing the strikes from 1896 to 1900 by years, causes, and results, and the second showing the strikes by causes only for each year

from 1901 to 1904:

CAUSES OF STRIKES AND LOCKOUTS IN BELGIUM, BY YEARS, 1901 TO 1904.

The data for strikes and lockouts in Canada were obtained from the Labor Gazette, published by the Canadian department of labor. Annual summaries of statistics relative to trade disputes have been published each year since 1901, so that the tables herewith cover a period of six years, from 1901 to 1906, inclusive. This summary, which appears in the January issue of the Gazette each year, presents not only the statistics for the labor disputes of the preceding year, but also the data for all years from 1901 to the date of publication. No separation is made of strikes and lockouts.

The following table shows the number of trade disputes for each year for the period covered, the number of persons affected, and the approximate loss in working time:

a Reported for 87 strikes and lockouts.

6 Reported for 116 strikes and lockouts. c Reported for 691 strikes and lockouts.

During the six years covered by this report there were 715 strikes and lockouts, 687 of which affected 115,950 persons directly and

26,566 others indirectly. The number of persons indirectly affected constitutes 18.6 per cent of the total.

In the next table the number of strikes and lockouts is given for each year by results:

a Including 1 dispute which began prior to January, 1906, but was not definitely terminated until 190.

On the basis of the table above, in which one strike is counted twice, 237 out of 716 disputes, or 33.1 per cent, were settled in favor of the employers, while in a slightly smaller number, 219, or 30.6 per cent of the total, the employees were successful. A compromise was effected in 167 cases and the employees were reported as partially successful in 12 others.
