Ottawa, Aug. 1."!, C. A. .Magrath. fuel controller, made tlic following statcincnl today: "I particularly desirn to draw attention to the fact that llie allotment fori the Canadian west as announced by Jlr. Peterson, tlie deputy controller, w.ille in Winnipeg rocpntly, is entirely contingent upon the I'oal being available in the United Stales, said the fuel controller, "Since last April the allotment of antliracite coal for Canada has been cut by l.OOO.noo tons. The United States ha.s. further ir.stric'ed supiilios all over that co'intry. For example Ontario and Queiicv are restricted, the fuel administrator of Que-; hoc having recently put, his province; on a 70 per cent basis. j "Apparently the West fails to realize! that the whole question of supply lioui the United State.s is being affected, from week to week because of war ac-1 livltles. The allothient of anlhracile made by Western Canada is absolutely the outside maximum that can be hoped for. 'Phere is no pos.-dbility whatever of getting more; there is a possibility of getting less. "The western allotment of anthracite is only half the amount normally consumed and this will be available, provided it reaches the head of tho lakes; but even this is not an assured fact, for the reasons I have given. As long as tile war is on no guarantee can bo given regarding anything in the matter of imported coal. This is the situation tl'.at must bo faced. The west is tbrtunatc in having soft coal avallablo and it is up to the people themselves to get it into their cellars. It is a municipal and provincial question. - "Unnecessary hardship will result this winter if western people do not follow the advice given which has been repeatedly urg-ad and forced on the dealers that ,'iO per cent of soft coal must be put In for every .50 per cent of hard coal supplied. Therefore. 1 positively and absolutely refuse to be responsible if the people suffer. It is -imperative that they store soft coal now. "Some com;)laints have reached me as to excessive prices charged for j coal in Winnipeg. An examination ofi onr records here show that tho haul-j ing charges of Winnipeg dealers compares favorably with those of other Geneva, Aug. 14.-Twenty divisions of troops were demanded of Germany's allies by General Lu-dendorff during the retreat from the Marne, according to the Demo-krat, which received the news from Gorman sources, Austria-Hungary refused but after General Ludendorff had . made threats, Vifcnna sent two dlvjlslons to the western front.

U.-Discussing the machinations going on in Finland and tho Baltic provinces to provide thrones for German princes, the Socialist newspaper Vorwacrts of Ber. lin, gives out a note of warning. "The new thrones to be erected In the lOa^it are not only threatened from within, hut from witliout." the news-paiicr says. "The world war is not yet ended. The monarchies arc based on the quicksands of the Brest-Litovsk peace. This craze for thrones in the East shuts tho door upon,, a peace by understanding and stakes everything on a military decision. The question inevitably arises whether the situation in the west justifies such | a policy." ISlsowhore in this issue Vorwaerts brands the policy in question as a "policy of crime.''
