Nature teacher tliif. Christianity proclaims it. As the crosses of life are our daily portion here below, there are the lessons winch they teach in our duty cue to the uther. That lesson was given some two thousand years ago. The iuau of Cjrene helped to the oppressive load that was crushing the Christ as He nude His journey io the hill without the city. In that he set the example fuf all time, in teaching the lesson that we should bear cue another's burdens.

Here lies a human duty, in the regard we hold our fellow beings. Sympathy and forbearance make for union and harmony. They smooth the rough places and help not only in the individual but in ths, national weal. Sympathy lends itself to a belter understanding of one another, and the'closer we understand one'another the better will the world move along. The essence of the creed we profess is that it inspires faith and hope. These are the lliings that make oiir Christianity helpful. It is this" inspiration which makes it a human and a humane creed. -The more we realise this the-rnore will oTir Christianity be worth.

Practically no other coal out Alberra coal should be used for domes- Industrial purposes from tha head of the Great Lakes west. For years the Hnrald has been ham- on this problem. Time after time we have urged upon the railways upon the people of Manitoba and Saskatchewan that oua of the finest spportunltles to develop one oi the treat's great natural resources was being .allowed to pass for lack of or- tanized effort to shut out American Eoal from a market which rightly be- longed to vs. Until the United Slates entered the "iu" large' measure, to bring about that "touch of human kindness which makes the whole world kin.'' This, after ail, makes for that great broth- erhood which the world so greatly needs. to consider a general increase of freight rales, lljat he believed Alberta coal should supply the whole of Cen- tral Canada, and that he would he .quite willing to listen to' arguments of Alberta coal operators for a better freight rate on coal in an easterly direction. This, to say the least, Is encouraging and should point the way to a very determined effort on the part of operators in this province for a reduction in freight rates. There war Tery 11 (tie notice was taken oj i has never been any douut that coal agitation, which had teeu taken ffp by other Alberta papers acd by .Kme ot the eastern press. However, I cbmtiinitlou of It last forced action. .The United States entered the war :jmdat once the conservation ot man power and the need ot supplying nations with coil brought coal shortage there and the aaed of rationing coal arose. At once Canada's main source ot fuel was lu leopardy. Wo have been Importing mnually tons or more ot imerican coal, mostly for Quebec and Ontario consumption and the danger I supply ieing shut off immedi- caused misgivings- in Canada., east then began to look askance who were importing trom the samo source as themselves, ind the suggestion east ot the llreat takes became very Insistent that Manitoba begin to usa more .At first the Manitoba people ob- strenously. Not knowing the 'juallly of our coaJ, they held the usual prejudice against soft coal when they Ud been accustomed to the use ot the iard quality product from the States. Naturally they did not take kindly to Ihe suggestion. .But it was at ttml that Aiberla fuel began to get I footing 1n the Manitoba market, Since then tho U. S. coal situation las never fceen normal. Despite every .Iffort the United States mines are low producing two million tons less weekly than tho normal supply, and a fraye winter fuel famine Is In sight )n the central and western states. .Not nearly the usual amount ol coal B being sent to lake ports for ship- Bent to the head of the lakes .for -Manitoba consumption, and as a result coal is In demand in many Manitoba points. In addition to this the government W the province ol Alberta, realising Ihat the development o( the coal re- lources of tho province, which are 15-per cent of tho world's visible !oal suppply, baa undertaken a cam- talgn to educate the people of Man- itoba and Saskatchewan in ihe economic USB ot Alberta coal. Demonstrations are being carried on principally In Winnipeg, md tho result has been to popularize >ur product.' The whole result Is that this year ;he mines of Alberta will broak all records of production. The first six nonths ot the year coal was mined at totter than a six million ton rale, ind It tho demand continues the sev- in million ton mark will likely bo reached. However, the increase does not yet >early represent the total fuel needs it; the prairie provinces. There la Hill much room tor expansion by se {uriug tho Manitoba and Eastern Sas- Russo-German Agreement May Be Concluded Moscow Hopes European Econ- (atchewao market. f-wp. very good suggestions have )een made within tho pant two days will help capture that market tor Alberta coal. Ono came from tlic :halrman ot tho railway commission "Hon. F. D. Csrvell, who staled Friday Horning at a sitting if the commlssfoi In Western Canada were ..rela- tively higher than .in the east and In tie United States. The rate from Kort William to Winnipeg was rela- tively lower than from Lethbridge to Winnipeg. While coal entered Can- ada free of duty, the freight rates Acted (is a tariff against the importa- tion of Alberta coal tor Manitoba con- 'sumptlou. It was really a tax against development of one of our greatest resources. The Calgary conference ot dealers and operators has sent ft res- olution to the railway commission suggesting lower freight rales, and if .nothing else results it Is possible that a lower rate for summer storage 'coal will resuIL What should happen, and- It would be for the general good, Is that a flat rate for Alberta coal should be established Into the Win- nipeg terminals which would allow our fuel feeing laid down la the Manitoba metropolis on even terms with the American product. The- second suggestion of the Cal- gary convention was that au etfort shbuld be made to have the govern- ment provide storage concrete warehouse at strategic points on the prairies for the storage of coai ;n summer Just the same as Interior storage Is provided for prairie grain. The suggestion has been made before, and it Is not far-fetched. It would be an economic gain. It would keep our miners working during tho summer months and -provide them with a bet- .er living, thus curing unrest. It would provide tonnage for tha rail- ways during the late spring and early summer, whrch are usually slack months. And H would overcome the danger of disaster through fuel fam- ne.during the severe winter months. There are so many things favoring such action on the part of tho corn- governments that, with the proper presentation of the facts, we liefleve the governments could bo made to see and to act. Certainly there was never a more auspicious opening tor the people ot Aiberla to make a concerted drive for the.development of our coal resources, and the opportunity should be utilized to the full.. There has been lalk In the past of over-development of our coal mince. What has really been Iho trouble has been undor-develojment of our natural market. We have the opportunity now to develop the mar kel, and with It will come tho develop menl of n great Industry in Alberta for fhe benefit of the people of tho whole Dominion.
