(Special to tnc Herald) I>"'ernle, Aug. 16. A mass meeting of Gladstone Local was to have been held here yesterday, which would have caused a shnl-down of the mines for the day. but upon the receipt of a wire from President Bigg!) at Calgary, stating that a meeting of operators, tho government agent, Mr. Armstrong and a committee of mine workers had been arranged for ne.\t Tuesday at which the matter was to have been brought before the meeting here today would be taken up. A committee of miners, Wm. Porter, A. M. Lees and W. B. Phillips had prepared the following letter to be for warded to the minister of mines at Victoria, and It was this letter that was to be laid before the miners today. The letter follows: To the Government of the Province of British Columbia: Sir: We, a committee chosen by Gladstone LK)cal,. 2314^ of tho United Mine Workers of America, Fernio, B. C, to search into conditions relating to our claim for only one shift lu twenty-four hours, make the following statement, which we think will cover every phase of the subject involved. To begin-the movement in regard to the one shift was solely inaugural ed by a desire for greater safety in tho mines at Coal preek. Conditions in these mines were so abnormal that tho government felt compelled to ascertain given conditions which seemed baftling to the engineering talent of tho province, and which lias resulted In an appalling loss of life In our community. In'furtlierance of this object, tho chief mining engineer of the U.S.A. Bureau of Mines, George S. Rtc�� was engaged to conduct an investigation of conditions In tiie Crows Nest coal field. Mr. Rice's report will then be used together with other reports appearing in the department of mines annual report. for the year ending 1917 to 'forward our contention. First, in regard to Mr, Rice's re- : port we may say that he goes ex-|�. haustively into the question of "bumps" and their causes and his conclusions may be regarded as logical. Wliile we may agree -yvith his method of dealing with the same, yet we feel that the greater danger may be regarded as wiiat is known-as "blowouts" or gas flows. On page 340, a statement is made that the gas flow from No. 1, Bast-when the mine was ic)le, was thq as: tounding amount of 1,795;680 cubic feet per day.- When the mine was working, 4,184,600 cubic feet was given off, there being approximately three times as much gas floV when working as when the mine was idle. So it is saCe to assume that when 4,184,600 cubic feet is given ^oft in twenty-four hours, that the 'greater amoimt of cubic feet would be given off In the sixteen hours of tho'^three periods, which would be 3,586,040 cubic feet plus 5!>8,r.60 cubic feel, which is the periodical amount given off on an Idle day, which would equal 4,184,600 cubic foeL  - It may be pardoned us if we make aj little digression at this p'oint in order' to submit for your perusal,some little data obtained from the city'of Medicine Hat, In order to make tjic conditions we labor under more "Snanitest to the government and to the people of the province, and to further emphasize th� terrific possibilities that can develop. Amount of gas used at present in Medicine Hat 'for lighting and heating, approximately 3,000,000 aubic feet of gas Is used per day for a population 6t 11,000. To resume-This we swbmlt, would bo a fair and reasonable method of ascertaining the gas flow. But, if necessity compelled us we Would'have recourse to the table of mine air samples (page 308, oX  the Mlnlater. of Minos Report) and though these figures would startle the mining world, yet naturally, in an inquest which would follow any case of asphyxiation these artw'.he figures which we would produce from the govornmeDt's. own I'eport, to show the highly dangerous conditions under which we are com-pelled to work. It may b6 shown or argued that thi� is a slightly abnormal condition, and other figures may be produced to ghow a lesser content in any of the periods. However, we will state that there* is no qualifying condition to account for gas content on page 340, In fact nothing unusual. _ Inspectors' visits or reports rarely mention slight bumps which release largo amounts of gas, while there are many instances of men being drawn out on account of gas flow and no record being made of tho same. On Afternoon Shift.' We further draw the attention of the goYernment to this phase of the gas flows, blow outs and bumps that have taken place In the Crows Nest cQal field. They have invariably happened on the afternoon shift which feature of the |iapi>enhig.. Tho gorging cltiznns.
