R. A. WRIGHT, The Jeweler Phones 165 and 160. I have received this morning from the Saskatchewan Government com-municut Ions which state that the utmost distress is existing throughout tho province on account of an actual coal famine at tho present tHme, and that this distress increases hourly with the prospects of consequences the most alarming, if immediate relief Is not afforded. From the intor-viev which I have had with repro -sor.tativcs of each of tho parfles to the present dispute and from circumstances which have arisen, it appcan to me probable that any settlement which it may bo possible to reach will lie as a result of negotiations necessarily more or less prolonged. It seems desirable, therefore, to consider if some means, can tot be found whereby in the public Interest nnd to save families from freezing In their homes work at the Lethbridge mines can l>e resumed immcdia  tely. tho parlies agreeing to a modus vivendl which will permit of the tllflcrcnceti between them heing amicably adjusted, without prejudice to tho interests of cither, and at the siinifl time allord as speedy relief as may l*> possible to thoso who arj experiencing actual suffering from a continuance of tho present diBputa. It would appear that such a modus vivpndi might be urranged, wore lha rcsiiectivo parlies to tho dispute to agroo to refer to arbitrat'ior. such differences as it may not bo possible to od.ust by conciliation: ponding luriher conciliation further conciliation proceedings and a possiblo arbitration, the Company on its part agreeing to accept tha services of tho men formerly in its employ so far as tho same can bo utilized in increasing tho output of iho minos to their fullest capacity as rapidly as possiblo; tho men on theftr part agreeing to waive all question of change of conditions until such timo as an agreement may be arrived at by conciliation or arbitration, on tho understanding that tho tonus of such agreement shall, so far as | possible bo made to apply in tho caso of each employee from tho data at such employee may return to work so that ho may have tho i'uiI bcnofit of any advantages accruing thereunder as if such agreement had bfvn in force at tho time of his re -turning to tho Company's service.
