Tho first thing that would happen, it anthracilo coal ivere barred from Western l^anada, would be another wholesale strike, which would be ended by tho obliging representative of the government putting the wages of the miners up to perhaps $25 a day. on the plea that, since coal must be had. the demands ot the alien enemies must be District News BOW ISLAND (Ftom Our own Corrosoonrtent) Cow island, April 20.-The home ^ cooking sale held on Saturday after-ouced-! noon was very successful in every way ed.

THE PROGRESS OF THE WAR Xo fnrtlier large attacks have as yet developed from the German side on the French front. Loci! attacks have been repulsed. Attention has centred the past few-days on the herSlc and hazardous undertaking of the British naval forces which landed marines at Zee-bruge and sunk old cruisers in the moutii of the Bruges canal, which is the chief base for submarine operations of the Germans. Further details of the adventure received today make it clear that the raid wai almost entirely sticcessfu!. den upon the poorer element of tho population. "There is no likelihood, we take it, that the fuel atithorities will pay serious attention to the modest demand of tho Alberta operators. This is a hard coal city; and there is no reason to believe that there will Us^auy serious difficulty in getting our usual supply of anthracite. Coal can be brought here from Pennsylvania at a minimum of demand upon transportation facilities. It comes up tlie lake as return cargoes for the iron ore and wheat carriers; and is brought to Winnipeg from Uie head of the lakes in cars that, lacking this ireight, would come back empty. On the other hand, to bring coal from Alberta to Manitoba and Western Ontario would merely increase the already immense preponderance of eastbound freight at a time when every ounce of motive power will be needed to move our ^ wheat to the seaboard. On every i ground the reiniesj of the Alberta ' coal operators should be rejected." It seemes to the Herald that tlie Free Press is taking a narrow view of the western coal situation. Its one argument is that Winnipeg may freeze if U. S. hard coal imports are prohibited. But Winnipeggers should take a wider view of the coal question. Alberta has billions of tons of coal deposits which are available to heat Winnipeg if Winnipeggers can be convinced that it is their national display of mlsccUanoous articles.

It will b� states that the average pre-war wheat' good for Alberta, good for Manitoba supplies of Great Britain, France, It-1 and good tor Winnipeg, if the most aiy, Belgium. Portugal and Greece, > easterly of the prairie provinces uses including their own production were; nothing but Alberta coal. Even fiom X '^PICKED UP IN-* PASSING TUB BUSY MAN 971,000,000 bushels. The 1917 production in these cotmtries was only 36S,-000,000 bushels, leaving import requirements fram August 1, 1917 to August 1, 191S, on the basis of normal needs, at 593,000,000 bushels or inore than was ever exported to Europe in any one year. With the utmost economy and substitution of coarse BrainB .instead of wheat, with consequent loss of their meat supplies, these countries might exist and feed ou SOu.uOO.OOO b'ushels. ?.?r. Uoherty points out that it is impossible for Canada and the United States 10 spare the 360.000,000 odd bushels which they were able to furnish in 1916-17. "In fact," he writes, "it will be ve{^- fortunate if their exports during 1917-lS do not fall under the 300 million mark, as the shipments from the United States, reported until racenuy,'have been extremely disappointing. " "It is probably well within the truth to state that our European Allies, are, tor the .current year, -over 100 million bushels short of their absolute needs, and that It is only through careful husban(iing and drastic rationing, and the shipment of North American sup-pMes and some Argentina wheat, that wide-spread starvation has been so far averted. '.'At the present moment in France a coustanily enlarging wheat area is being v.Tested from cultivation by the Huns and the last Austrian drive cut off appreciable territory from Italian cultivation, it is apparent that North America is tho allies' only refuge, and �r-e now hear their repeated appeals Irapioriug us to wake up to the terribly tragic situation." a selfish standpoint Winnipeg should get behind the Alberta proposal. As for the Alberta miners, they are not so bad as the Winnipeg Free ess of a delightful tea given at her home on Friday afternoon in courtesy to her sister, Mrs, MacLeaD, who is at present her guest.

Song by His Worsl^ip: "Spilling the Beans AVhen the I\Iayor"s Away." WINNIPEG ASSUMES SELFISH ATTITUDE The Winnipeg Free Press does not seem to be enamoured with the'proposal to put a ban on U. S. anthracite coal so that the Manitoba market may be thrown open to the operators of Alberta. Under tho caption; "A Cold Proposition," the Free Press says: "Worthy of admiration. In a way, la the '(nerve" of the Alberta coal dperators In hastening to advise the �tothorities at Ottawa that there is jjtp need to worry about the fuel �ipply of Canada, west of the Great l^fcM, tlDce they will guarantee a WfXl supply from their mines. They �fe not lacking in confidence or am-Ijition; but It would be literally a C(|>ld day for the people of this city t|, the Fuel Oontroller were to listen tip* their siren song. '�"Alberta is the place where the lien enemies who condescend to operate our coal mines strike every other week for higher pay. The Gov-rnmant has a special representative dnt there, who Is kept galloping afoqnd from coalfield to coalfield, ad ^listing difficulties which spring up erarpigltt, aud boosting wages.

The regular monthly meeting of the Women's Institute was held in the rest room on Saturday afternoon and largely attended and thoroughly enjoyed 'dv all present. Mr, Barton gave an eloquent address to those in attendance which won for hini much applause. The resignation-ot Mrs, Sutton as president of the institute was accepted and an election took place, Mrs. A. F. Werts winning the. majority vote. The spectacle ot the mayor's organ rushing to the defense ot the com-' missioners on the garbage truck purchase is at least amusing. -Another big push may be expected on the west front any day now. The loss of a million or so meii is nothing to the Kaiser, Hindenburg & Co, The last windstorm started in Edmonton and it was bad enough to knock those that start In Macleod into a cocked hat. .M^acleod expects now to be forgiven for many things. Answer to "An.xious Reader": .\'o, the hustling activity around the garbage dump had nothing to do with tiie fire there on Saturday nJight. The fire is always there. Says the Toronto Globe: Brickbats, rather than bouquets, are the souvenirs which fall to the lot of public men. To which Commissioner Grace appends a soulful "Amen! Twas ever thu.s." The proposal to raise taxes by the floor space method is revealing more and more that tho Income tax plan, properly administered. Is the only fair method. In another year people will have come to accept the Income tax as a just form of taxation, and the city should be able then to introduce It with little opposition. The water tank at Sixth Avenue and Fourteenth Street South is being cleaned out. Some soil that looks as if It had all the makings ot the best ot material for kitchen garden fertilizer Is being removed from the tank. It is well known that there Is no better material for growing crops on than the tine soils brought down by the action of rivers, and this is just that sort of stuff. An exchange gays that, speaking of hogs, as Lord Dundreary would say, It Is one of the paradoxes of the war that people are Implored, exhorted, adjured and admonished to rear and breed these toothsome creatures, and Jn the same breath are supplicated, petitioned, importuned, and enjoined not to eat' them. It is a summon* to both patriotic''exertion and patriotic Bftcfiffee:, exertion in rearing pigs and sacrifice in abstainins from 4eT0urinK thosa.
