John Miti'heil is preftidcnt, of the United Mina Work er� of .America, and it is the nwni-Iwrs of the locnl unions of this organization at tho two points named who struck work in the efTor* to force tjcUcr teruia from 'the mining companies. A prinv. point in e�-:h case in tho demands of tho mer.-the only demuml practicall.v in the case of i-'eniic-wa-s the condition of a clo^icd shop, and lil is noteworthy' that in cjirh case Mr. Mitchell has boen amenable to reason on thia point, and tho strike has been ended without forcing this violation of justice on tho enii>loj crs. It doosnot perhaps mak� jt any tho mono satisfactory that Cunadian labor trou -bios should be �.:ttltHl in the Unit�Kl .Stales, and the iiiiUter is ono that seems to come wjU vithin tiio scope of legislation. A 6>?n!>ation.'tl i>eizurc of the nvincs under govcrnraont sanction and atU^mpt to work ihvnn by farmers under the proioction of the rules of the Moiint�l I'olito, with possibly- scenes of >)Iuod�hcd, attd un ulmost ccrtair.' failure to increajw the output in time to alleviate the priw-ent di8>tre.d has resuHtxl sue -L-eiJsfuHy. nut now that Mr. Mit  chcll'has intervened, even though it has been to net witii moderation and judgmeirt, jt may \k desirable to consider whothor it would not lic^io'l to prwcnt the possibility of the recurrence of the sittitttion. In the case in point, however, ih.-ono outtttunding fact that ha*! ti> be considcn.'d was iho distress m S.-.a . katchcwnn, and what would haVf I been undesirivblc undor oixiinary tr-|cuntstanc�s bccanu; entirely tvason-|abk� in face of a widespread ii-nl � f anUnc. Those who criticize the c�M;rso adopted would, perhaps, have Vviu less inclined to do so had ihcy had the opporttftiity of glancing ihro'igh the pile of correspondence relaMn^to the coal famine which i� fo^mi '.u the oflloe of the Deputy Minists* o' Agriculture of liegina. I spent ai'uy .It the Saskatchewan capital oa my way back from Lethbridge. "i'lic temperature bad just dropped t-uia thirty or forty degrees, and it was ten degrees below wro. Coming along from Medicine Hat we bad i.iu into a bli/JSard. From' out of the tar windows we could see .miy lb.' snow and a viiderncss of white, with hojv and there a settlement, in which every door and win.low v.ik "l**g�a,'(y^8eaitu. i�Ir�^5n3tJfe..,"'�af*.!V; V8 slowed up we caught sight of a jscctionman or sonve other railway hand with heavy it idea on His tieard hoodod head, thickly glovod hands, and big shaggy coat, looking ;'ir all the world like a grizzly bear as ha moved clum.sily about in the fool-rleep snow It mnile or.e shiver to think of a coal famine under suih circumstances. At Itegina. in rcspon^w to my inquiry whether ho thought the aittta-tioii had been in any way .exagigcrat-xl. 9fr. Ketchum, the Deputy mia'.a -Icr, made n� glance through tbe oor-rcjBpondcnco in eot'ed. It >vill be a hand-to-mouth m*tter all winter in any case, und the distri -button of coal will have to be moat carefully regulated." Mr. Kotchum agreed that there would havo been n shortage ever, had there bcwn no (itrikc, that tlierc wna actually a shortngR lost year, though not. of ho serious a nature as tho present ca^, and that tbe c]itK!st4on o( an adc�|uaie provision of coal for a great popa-fation growing so amazingly shouhl NO BETTER CHRISTMAS GIFT TO AN ABSENT FRIEND THAN THE HERALD 11.60 A YEAR We ano deairous of obtaining (.n Agency in Calgary for some good Lothbrklgo coal. WritiD at onw to The) Calgary Securltlea Co., limited, Calgary, - not be a mere matter of chance. SasVatcheWan Government's Activity The Saskatchewan Governptent h�fi ferta*inly left no stone unturaiMl that would assist in procuring an alli>,vl> ation of the fuel famine. Mr. Ket -chum showed me a circular that had been sent out to the various coal mines within reach of 8�Mkatchowan asking what is the pivsent output, how it might he increased, whether further lalor is n�!ded. and to whort extent, if any, oiach of these miinoa could assist the present 'strcas ic tlw Province. The an^wc-rs were not very encouraging, though then* were several places that Atatcd the output could l]c jncrooaed were more 'cam procurable. On thin poif.t it may ho said that the C.IMt. has lent its powerful aid to tha Qovornmcnt. The railuay is drawing extensively for^l Its own Ritpply of hltunriooua cool at Fort William, supplying ii to agenta at act cost, plus transportation char g�ii, and practically placing bert branch, and finally asks that the departntcnt be kept frequently ad-v.aed of local conditions "in order that wo might bo the 'bettor able to co-operate vrith you in tho way of �ccuriag supplies."' On tbe whole, it must -y loss to the company. In the nteantime there la aonie talk of an eight^hour It^v!. egji^katlitgJnHu Edmoatoii, and further o( a com-pulsor}' ark'itration law similar to that of Now ^aihind. Tho Edmonton Administration seems to be ver>-radical in character and disposed to grapple fearlessly with the noost menacing problems. Compulsory ar-bitnution would no doubt have prevented the Lethbridge strike, which has been seriously detrimental to tbe 'interests of both company and men. not to speak of tho distress in Has-katchewan, for which has bean so largely responsible, and it has ended, like moat strikea, in mutual concession and conifjrom/itie. Compulsor>' arbitration, luorcoV'Sr, would allow a settlement of Canadian Iniior dis -putes without oppcal to a foreign labor oflicial. A Thing of Beauty Is a Joy Forever!
