to be laid before the miners to The letter follows To the Government of the Province of British Columbia a committee chosen by Gladstone of the United Mine Workers of to search into conditions relating to our claim for only one shift in twentyfour make the following which we think will cover every phase ot the subject To movement in regard to the one shift was solely inaugurat ed by a desire for greater safety in the mines at Coal Conditions in these mines were so abnormal tnat the government felt compelled to as given conditions which seemed banning to the engineering talent of the and which has resulted in an appalling loss of life in our In furtherance of this the chief mining engineer the Bureau of George was engaged to conduct an investigation of conditions in the Crows Nest coal Rices report will then be used together reports ap pearing in the department of mines annual the year ending 1917 to forward our tn regard to Rices re port we may say Hhot toe goes ex haustively into the question of bumps and their causes and his con cluBions may be regarded as While we may agree with his method of dealing with the yet we teel that the greater danger may be re garded as What is knownas blow outs or gas On page a statement Is made that the gas trow from Bast when the mine was was the as tounding amount of cubic feet per the mine was cubic feet was given there being approximately three times as much gas flow when work ing as when the mine was So it is safe to assume that when cubic leet is in twentyfour that the greater amount of cubic feet be given off in the sixteen hours of the three which would be cubic feet plus cubic which is the periodical amount given off on an idle which would equal cubic It may be pardoned us if we make little digression at this point in order to submit for your little data obtained from the city of Medi cine in order to make the condi tions we labor under more Manifest to the government and to people of the ana to further em phasize the terrific possibilities that can Am6unt of gas used at present in Medicine Hat for lighting and approximately dubic feet of gas Is used per day for a population ot To we would be a fair and reasonable methort of as certaining the gas if nec essity compelled us we Would have re course to the table of mine air sam ples page ofthe of Mines Report and though these fig ures would startle the mining yet in an inquest which would follow any case of asphyxiation these figures which we would produce from the own to show the highly dangerous conditions under which we com pelled to It may be shown or argued that Is a slightly abnormal and other figures may be to show a lesser content in any of the per we will state that Is no qualifying condition to account for content on page in fact nothing Inspectors visits or reports rarely mention slight bumps which releaje large of while there many of men being drawn out on account ot gas flow and no record being made ot tho On Afternoon We further draw the attention of the government to this phase of the gM flows blow outs and bumps that have taken place in the Crows Nest They have invariably happened on the afternoon

pieanuro and we oipeet great er gas flow we have the same cortditiona which were manifest ed at MorVlssey Mines when fourteen lives were Quality of Passing from this question of gas flows and though even the figures giv en on page 308 are unprecedented in the history of the coal mining notwithstanding the constant menace of the we feel that there is an additional danger that we are compelled to draw the attention of the government the quality of the gas tt is a matter of com ment that any miner coming here from other coal fields remarks the peculiar odor of the gas flow given off at Coal Creek and and we are quite prepared to accept Field ners statement on pages 337 and wherein he remarks that on anal ysis that ethene was the predomin ating gas or combustihle gas in Coal Creek having examined these re ports with all statements of analysis with the greatest care as far as we technically able we therefore come to the following conclusions That we agree with Rice in his recommendation on page paragraph b to prevent dan ger outbursts overwhelming That such ground be only advanced at a moderate one ahlft in twentyfour V we cannot deter mine conditionsof yet we can oat to the government that it has a share in the responsibil ity for our and that we will be in case of fatal arising out ofthese conditions to place the onus same on the gov I wonder what Pickwick would

around the old familiar spots the Borough which are such appealing sur vivals of Dfckens Land in there came to my mind the lively let ter that the great novelist to his American Professor Felt describing the holiday tour in Cornwall he was making with Stantteld and Forstef If you could have seen but one gleam of the bright fires by which we sat in th big rooms of ancient dims at night until long after the small hourshad and or smelt but one steam of the hot punch which came in every evening In a china bowl I never laughed in my life as I did on this It would have done you good to hear me I think of the happy days and nights of long ago when Dickens found the Joy of life in every street and byway oftbTe great and the feast and the wassail bowl were typical of the Mfirrle England in
