The change went, into effect at (wo o'clock on Hnnday morning. Ministers reported that ft had its effect on the morning congregations which were somewhat depleted. The greatest change is noticed by the .school children. Getting to school an hour earlier in the morning is not easy. "You have to chase them to bed with a stick and got them out of bed with n stick," was one father's comment on the daylight saving measure as it affected his household. However, it is expected that within a week everything will have settled down and people will think very little about the change. The fact that tho railways are on fast time removes all talk of the old time, and makes fast time only a matter of getting accustomed to it. The railways are on the fa3t time schedule now, and the short wait at Coutts is done away with, the old schedule being in effect today, now that Canada is saving daylight along witn Uncle Sam. it is reported at the local railway offices that trains which were booked an hour late on Sunday morning made up the loss during the day and will arrive at their destinations today on time. London, April IE.-Foreign Secretary Von Kuehlmann, according to a German dispatch received here, has replied to the Russian 'protest against the German invasion of Russia by c-laiming that the Germans and Ukrainians are attempting to break up "bands" and are not attacking Russia. The message to the' Russia foreign minister says: \ "According to the resistance and counter attacks by bands which are causing disturbances in the Ukraine and which do not make any distinction between the Ukraine and Russian territory, it is impossible in operations against them to keep strictly to the frontiers which were defined as Ukrainian. The operations against these bands cannot possibly be limited to the frontiers so long as the Russian government does nothing to disarm the offenders.' "A change in this unpleasant state of tilings is looked for only when peace is signed between the Ukraine republic and the government of the people's commissaries and organized bands alike will be compelled to cease hostilities."

XV. of A. will receive an increase in wages of 20 cents a day dating from April 1st. This is the effect of an order received this morning by local operators, and is the result of the investigation Into living conditions as made by the special committee which has just completed sessions at Lethbridge, Calgary and Penile into living costs. The order is signed by W. H. Armstrong, commissioner for coal operation in this district. The investigation showed an advance In the cost of living of $1.1950 per week for the average family during the period from Dec. 1 to Apr. 1. The order is the third put into effect since the two year contract between tho miners and the operators was signed last July. The first went into effect on August 1st and called for "0 cents a day.

This, with the increase of 15 cents a ton allowed by the government to the transportation companies will mean an increase of at least 30 cents which prairie dealers will be allowed to charge. There is one point of protest which the operators are now raising, and that has to do with the fixed price allowed to be charged the miners for their coal. At present the standard price Is $2.25 per ton, f.o.b. mine. The operators declare that with the increased wages to the men they should be allowed an increase in the price ai the coal supplied to their employees.
