Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - August 6, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta TUESDAY. AUGUST 0, THI'; w/l-rniBniDGE DAILY IIF.RALrj PAGE SEVEN COAL iNERS HERE ARE WORKING 10 A BIG CAPACIiy Frmored Embargo on Coal Shipments Haas Not Yet Affected Them Tlmt some of tlio rallies In tho Tiorthorn piirt of tlin pi'ovlucc iiro now fnkiiiK slioi't llmo on aocoimt ot con-gust Ion In tho colli trailB Is Information gntliered by the >loiuliJ today from rollablo Hourcos. Tho recent mix-tip In orders govurnlUK tho amount of V.s. nnthraclto available la partly the ' Hguiiio. whiiu the general antipathy on tho part of ho many Rfanltoha peoplo to Alberta coal In goneral 1b another. A spnclHl dispatch from Winnipeg to tho Calgary "Canadian" gives another probable reason. It Kays. "The embargo on shipments from sonio Alberta points to Winnipeg may bo the results of oftorta on tho part of Wlnulpec coal distributors to build up a surplus of Alberta coal against contingencies. Coal has been piling up 80 rapidly that facilitlos have become swam'ped. Spur tracks are con-gestod, and domurrngo cliargos on cars are mounting seriously. "11 was annoiinced yeaterday that Bomo of the dealers have been notified that unless they are ablo to provide taster unloading arrangomonts. at ]oaat one of tho railroad companies will declare an embargo on slilptnents. U Is declared that the cost of handling coal at this end ot tho Journey has in many cases gone to |S or $1) per car, Tho averago carload ia tl.ted at 3-' tons." Miners Here Working. So far none ot tho coal mines in tha Lethbrldgo district liavo been affected, and there ia ev^ry reason to believe that tho mines here will continue to put out all available tonnage �until next spring. One of the difficulties In the distrl-hution of Alberta coal this year will bo the tact that at many points Winnipeg grain concei-na will not open tholr olovators. and an coa! Is often handled in connection with elevators at conn-try points the aystom of distribution �will be affected. One Winnipeg grain man in tho city today is roaponaible for tho Btatonient that his firm, with fid elevators in tho west, will not open ftt :vi points, at all ot which they carried a coal supply.

ONLY MAKES THEM Parts, Aug. 5.-Contemptuous remarks greeted tho first explosion of tliG Gorman long range shelling In the Paris region today, because a resumption ot the bombardment at this time wiis exactly what tho population expected of the Germans. Expressions ot rage and hopo for revenge soon were heard, however, when It became known that some-�where In tho vicinity of Paris women and children had been murdered wantonly by the German shells. Uenewal of tho bombardment has further strengthened the resolution of Paris to ,'joe that the war la carried on until Germa(i militarism has fallen. Paris, Aug. 6.-Ill-tooling between the German Crown Prince and Crown Prince Hupprocht had Its effect on the German high command In beginning the present offensive between SoIsrohh and RhelniB which already has turned Into a defeat tor the ormies commanded by the heir to the Prussian throne. The German Crown Prince, according to reports, strongly desired that his armies should have the honor ot striking the first blow In tho offensive of 191S. The emperor is believed to have lent a favorable ear to the wishes of his son and early indications were that tho German Crown Prince would have another chance to redeem bis great failure at Verdun. Crown Prince Rupprecht of Bavaria, whose command Is on the northern end ot the battleline, however, laid his case directly before the high command instead ot before the emperor. As a military preparation It was the view ot General Ludendorft and his associates that the blow should be struck in the north and without taking into account the perso^ial Issue Jjotweon the two crown princes the high command decided to attack in the north. The emperor Is gald to have assented rather reluctautlyi while the German Crown Prince maintained that tho main drive should be made farther south. Decision having been made, the big offensive opened in the north In March and wag given a double chock first oast of Amiens and second east of Hazebrouck, The failure gave the Crown Prince strong support for his pleas that the drive should he made against tho French lines and appar ently the high command gave Its consent. Rupprecht has been compelled to send diviallns to the aid ot the German Crown Prince, thus probably Adding to the bitterness of the pill ot defeat which the German Prince is now having forced upon him by General Foch, Local mills arn |)rvi!ii r:ii-j;ocs for Scandinavian ports, a.i nnling to the Telogruttt.'

London, Aug. 5'-(British Wireless Service.)-Winston Spencer Churchill, British minister ot munitions, in a letter defining his Ideas us to the conditions upon which the Germans can secure peace, says they are two in number. A ileclsive victory for the allies on tho battlefield is the first condition, .Vlr. Churchill believes, and the second Ib that ot their own free i will the German people must break with their military masters. The letter says in part: ^ "Two separate conditions are required ot the German people-first, they must be decisively beaten in the field by the armies ot the allies. This should be an indispensable preliminary to a cessation ot hoatilitles. Second, they should by their own free and spontaneous will or by an act ot self-regeneration, make a dotlnlte break with the system which has led them to so many fearful and raons- ........ trous crimes. Not till then should Crown I tbey be allowed to take their place In the league ot nations and he received into the brotherhood ot mankind: Only in this way can the horrors and calamities ot lh� present time come to an end, once and for all."
