It would also seem that sufficient foresight is not shown in stocking up with this staple article early enough in the fall. It would be wr!I, once they havo thJ evidence memorial be the Railway Commission and the House of Commons through their members on this subject. Among other things the government should put. coal on the free list. It was a national mistake to allow individuals or corporations to see-uro control oi tho coal mines, as of the settlers, although H was not u full solution of the dilllculty. Absolution of the matter would bo welcomed. Mr. Ilordin thought tho government' should toko possession of the minitH. Ho vas told there was soma difference of opinion lotwven tho Do-mln on and tho provincial go vera -moi.t In this regard. Sir Wilfrid Laurlor replied that that there was no such proposition, lie did not think that the time had come for tha govornmunt laying a high hand on private property. Tnu high hand on private properly. Thn ordinary laws of the country ought to l>e sufllciont to cope with touch r n evil. Mr. Borden-1 understand that the provincial government havo taken tho position that It was not fjr them to act but for this government and accordingly had been incoimnun-icntion with this government.

Bring Results. Toronto News: There is a strong undercurrent of protest agaAnsi the activity of Amorlcan union organ -.xers in tho coal strike at Fcmlo in British Columbia, In that at Loth  bridge in Alberta, and in the street railway trouble at Hamilton. Natm-atly the suspicion arises that cm -ploying intorests across tho border bvtrlque in order to suspend tho operations of enterprises In Canada, and so to benefit American corporations. It has to be rememtiered, however, that generally strikes nro declared by a local union, and that I the International officer does not i\p-I pear, until conciliation and nogot -� iaUon become necessary. Of course a =- strike cannot' be declared wlthouttho approval of the chief officers of an International body, but w� imagine appeal Is made to the government to slthnr compel the Lolhbridge coll lory owners to come to a settlement with tholr men and resume operations or to take thn mines over and operate them themselves. But whatever the outcome of the present crisis may be, the lesson it teaches should* not bo lost sight of* Either machln-jrv must );e provided In the form of some measuro of compulsory arbitration or the government must undertake tho operation of coal measures belonging to the nation, not for purposes of competition with private concerns but to guard against fuel famines consequent upon Industrial disputes. puRiry M.
