PLANT TREES It is very, true that art Easterner coming to the West misses the trees more than anything else, Leih- bridge's boast in years past has been that the city has had a good appear- ance because of the large number of trees planted. Many of these hare attained a growth- that has indeed: been gratifying to those who were in-1 strumental in getting them planted, i The street grading and sidewalk con- i struction of last year meant the tear-! ing up of a great many trees, many of them of good size. A considerable number were transplanted in other parts of the city. This spring the Council is having a great many trees planted and is doing its share toward making the city beautiful by tree planting. TWO VIEWS ON THE STRIKE Albertan Newspapers Have Widely Differing Views (Coleman Miner.) It has come to light that the min- ers' agreement with the Crow's Neat Pass Coal Company at Ferale, Only assured a closed shop if the Company This shows Sherman, up in a bad light as he made point one of his reasons for railing strike, stating that he would insist on a It is the citizens to do some- closed swae that in lore. at the Feroie mines. (The Calgary Alfaertan) "The reports of the meeting: of the miners in Fernie show that, there is no rift in the ranks, that the Pass miners are solid and that they are behind Sherman to- a man. It would be very surprising if they were not behind Sherman, whose fight is to get them as jrood. terms as he succeeded in getting for other miners who are working in the same district According to the statement made by Mr. Sherman he did nothing dis- honorable, and in no way discredited the honor of the miners' union. This was so apparent that the representa- sent by the international presi dent seemed to be quite convinced. So the labor trouble now resolves itself into the original dispute when the men first went out and is not complicated by any side issues. The miners are asking for the same terms that have been given to the majority of the men in the any strike 'trouble. district witfctout That being the it seems as if it is an easy road for the strikers. To the outsider, un- acquainted with the technicalities of the business it would seem that th'e miners can be asking for nothing very outrageous, when the majority of the operators, under similar conditions, vithouL any argument, gave the re- Imperial Bank of Canada thing in this line this spring. yard, either front or back looks its j best without trees plainted according to its size and location. The trees have a scenic value but from the standpoint of usefulness in the pres- ervation of health they are very val- uable as weH, A few dollars' spent in trees and labor will be well expend- ed and-the direct returns will far exceed th? expenditure. A PUBLICITY HOUSE Alderman Hatch has certainly got some correct ideas on publicity. His move to have a publicity building is decidedly a move in the right direction. The large part of the efforts of the publicity department of both the Council and the Board of Now it turns out that the not a closed .shop and that the njw- agreement is not as favorable to the men. as the one just expired. Tiid fact of the whole matter is, that :t is a one-man fight. The Llttto cares not what suffering ha brings upon the miners, so long hi 3 personal interests are satisfied. How much, better would it lave been for the miners had they guided by some cool-headed thought- ful man who instead of striking first and negotiating afterwards would have allowed the to work on der the old agreements and in the meantime try and arrive at a satis- factory settlement.

The miners have brought to light one -defect in the Lerpieux Axt, and probably the one very serious defect. That is the long notice that is requir ed for a board of conciliation. Had the miners been able to secure such a board on a couple of -days' notice instead of on thirty days' notice, in all probability they would have ask- ed for the board. But with a strike in sight a wait of thirty days would be playing right into the hands of operators and embarrassing: the miners in their struggle. With some such change, which may be made at this session, the act would be found to be very much more workable."
