Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - April 3, 1920, Lethbridge, Alberta ALL THE LOCAL NiiWS WHERE YOU EXPECT IT the heraij3spage0p live local NEWS saturday, april 1�,-1920 SECOND SECTION lethbridge, alberta, second section �page klevkn?;| Zei^o Easter Pleases Coal Miners But Not Farmers Easter Mmic Inthe^^urcbes Priirie Coal Bins Scraped To Bottoin and S. O. S. Calls for Relief Come to Mining Com-"panie^-Big Summer Output Predictedi^Farmers Not So Pleased Over Zero WeWher. Raster-Christmas-which is It? Oho below Saturday morning, two below Good Friday inorriinlgr, three above Thursday morning-that Is the record of an Easter season which will live in the minds o� Southern Albert.-ana for a long time. And Lethbridge isn't the coldest �3i)ot on the map by any means. Prince Albert italces the palm with 10 below, 'but there is no place in the whole of the west that has anything to brag about in the way of weather. � Reports from Manitoba are that the coal bins are being hard hit, .while -local coal companies are receiving rush wires from their dealers in Sas-Icatchewan to hurry along a supply oi coal. It's an ill wind, etc., and the mines of Southern Alberta are due to benefit greatly by the cold wea;ther of the Easter period. The coal bins of the ' prairies are being scraped to-tide over the present cold spell, and the result Js that orders for summer storage coal will commence to cothe in much earlier than usual. In fact they are heginning to be placed, and the mines }iere woirked half time this week with the outlook good for a fairly steady run throughout the summer months. u\dded to tills cleaning out of the Visible supply in the dealers' bins comes-^vord from the United States Ifields that it will \be impossible to come nearer than ninety per cent, of filling the demand' in that country no matter how the miners, work. This will mean a curtailing of the export of coal to Canada. > In this case Manitoba may be forced to come to Alberta for a great deal larger percentage of :ts coal supply than has been the case in the past. With labor troubles in Alberta mines pretty well out of the way the outlook is good for the most prosperous year in the history of the mines of this province. Mine^labor .will be one of the greatest troubles to overcome >as the farmers are bid-diiSg strong now for any surplus labor, and already thei-e is a noticeable movement away fron;.!^e, mining camps to the farms, ' ' � " So much-f6r coal and a eero Water. ' Seeding Very Late The farmers'arc not viewing the trigld atmosphere with so much equanimity. Six months ago today, October 3rd, llfk winter started with the first Buowstorm, witli-the mercury dipping around zbro. I^ is the longest, coldest winter on record, and it has been hard on feed. The spring seeding is going ito bo delayed not only on account of the lato spring but also oh accoimt of Mie shortage of feed and the delays 111 getting seed. However, Supt. Fair-liekl of the Experimental Farm is not worrying ut all. He says that a late spring is generally a pretty good ill-tlic.ition of a moist summer, and with most of the land to be seeded ready for the cultivator the farmers need not worrk if they don't do much before the iOth of the minth. Winnipeg Short of Coal WINNJPiiG, April 3.-Many "Winnl-i pug homes will be without fires tomorrow, according to a local paper. As a result of the cold snap, which caught TOUuy househol{^ers with their coal bins practically exhausted,-, fuel dealers today were literally swamped with orders for coal or Avood, or any old kind of fuel just so long as it would burn. Dealers say that many of the urgent orders received today could not possibly be tilled before Tuesday or Wednesday. Shortage of teams is the main difficulty in the way of filling of orders. Some dealers are delivering a tew bags'in their private automobiles to each customer.   � ii^   '^t *     PASS KTffiSfrt r  ooiACk to Work The situation In ^tha Pass In regard to I the nilnerts' atrlke has come back'to almoit normal.

It is no better now and no worse than at any time in its history. There is a set of fine chaps on it who are al; ways honest and willing to do their duty. What does Mr. Cuddy know about the Lethbridge Fgrce excepting through second-band reports? We have seen some of these reports and Mr. Cuddy is welcome to all that kind of rotten guidance he is wiUingg to receive. "I notice that Mr. Cuddy thinks the laws are such that he cannot decently enforce them and wants amendments. He has made a rotten job of policing so far himself but must blaspheme those who do better than he. "Mr. Cuddy simply simply stooped to malign this City Police Force when he'-said what he did about the Lethbridge Police Force." W. D. L. HARDIE, Mayor.
