"Every coal mine in the province is vorking" every day to the full capnc- ,ty of Its labor .supply, but unless a miracle happens there will be a-coal famine this winter." There Is the ooinion of John F. Stir- ling, chief Inspector1 of mlnbs for tho province. He has Just reached Leth- bridee after a tour of the province in which he has watched the output fig- ures very closely and he therefore speaks with authority. "Last said Mr. Stirling, "in spite of the fact that the mines had the best demand and the best summer run in their history, the province mined tons less of coal than la the proceeding year. The reason sim-. ply was lack .of labor. This has been aggravated this year -by enlistment and other causes, and with every available man working on, the demand .will be greater than the supply, unless of course, there is .no' winter this year." .Jlr. Stirling states that many min- ers are now put of the mines and will. work in the harvest fields so that lat. er tbo shortage will not be so keenly felt.
