Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - December 20, 1906, Lethbridge, Alberta a last word* We have been livitur, in tin ntinoa|jhcrcct of coal lands already alienated, provision should be made for such con -trol and regulation in cane of ctner-BKic'ieH a� will in the future prevent Ions and suffering to the |>oople of Iho western Provinces through lack of fuel supply. .Speaking in support of the motion, he referred to the lutniwr c|ue*llon. uhli-h was, he said, already akin to the fuel question.

Thero should be some provision which would Insure � pro|�>r supply of coal i.n-the n;eds of the |>eoplc "in -ih.> (.', i.-adiun Northwost.

There were vast coal areas easily workable, but it was necessary that there should bo capital, labor and transportation u-vallablo, and, above all. transpor -tat ion.
