Mr. Magrath. like Garfield across the line took "the bull by the horns" and issued drastic orders closing down for certain days factories and theatres, in order to conserve j coal. ' It has been a hard winter in tho east and the demand for conl lias been much hea\ier than usual. Both' Can- \ ada and the 'L'nited States must pre- : pare to meet the fuel situation for I next winter. Properly directed, both i countries can obtain plenty of fuel but preparations must not bo delayed. Western Canada can be made to sup- : ply ihc east with coal, certainly w.ti can supply all the prairie provinces J and permit tiie. amount that is now ', imported to go to the eastern pro- 2. Sutherland, Sr.. one oi oldest residunts, died, THE PROGRESS OFTHE WAR American troops are getting into the conflict now. Their artillery broke up e German attempt this week, and proved effective in destroying German de-tenses. It is stated that the peace negotiations at Brest-Litovsk have again been broken off. the trouble being the split over the question of Ukraine. Indications point to the rapid approach of the big clash on the western front. Troops are being massed in groat numbers on both sides, and it is Stated that the battle when it comes will be the greatest clash of arms ever known or conceived. THE RESULT IN * SOUTH ARMAGH The South Armagh election result bears indication that Sinn Fein Is on the wane in Ireland. The Nationalist Tictory was only obtained after a hard fight and it may mean much to Ireland. It is probable the people learned of the proposed Irish settlement and were prepared to accept it, and so ttey voted Nationalist. Sinn Peiners Son't believe in settlement; they want n Irish republic or nothing else. South Armagh doesn't agree with them. It was a bitter contest, and passions: were aroused, so the result is all the more significant. ALBERTA'S NEW SENATORS i i One senate appointment from Al-, bcrta is a complete surprise and will 'unquestionably arouse criticism th/mcli this appointee nitty prove to be % 'pleasant surprise in his servi.v.- as a I senator. Time will tell. Senate, appointments usually are a recognition of party service and go to men who have, served years in the ranks of the | party in power. There are exceptions j to that rule, and Mr. Harmer's appointment is an instance. Mr. Miehener's selection is undoubtedly due to his service to the Conservative party though of course we expect the union government to make appointments for other reasons than party service. It should try to make the senate a more useful body. Mr. Michener can help in making it useful, for he is a comparatively yo'ing man, a hard worker and eager to serve the public. Mr. Harmer's career in the senate will be the most closely watched. His appointment means the test of a new type, a civil servant of good executive ability comparatively unknown to the general public. His choice was made by Mr. Sifton, whose intimate friend and associate he lias been. If It proves to be an unwise ap-1 pointment Mr. Sifton must bear tne Mayor Somerville of London is to undertake a scheme to promote the adoption of daylight saving.

Spollman, proprietor of the Windsor Hotel, Oampbollforrt, dropped dead. P. Martial Cote. K.O., one of Ottawa's most respected citizens and chief clemency officer of the department of justice, died suddenly. PACIFIST* DON'T COUNT Claremee Darrow, the brilliant American labor lawyer, was at one time a pacifist. He isn't any more. Speaking in Detroit recently he said: "What is pacifism? Why, pacifism is just a religious theory, nothing more. It is utterly unscientific, and Is absolutely contrary to all the laws of nature, and of life. Pacifism means Inertia, life means struggle-a struggle from the cradle to the grave." Then he hesitated a moment, and tdded, quietly: "And 1 will say to you, that pacifists don't count!." The war is causing a change in tlie opinions of many men. Darrow is only one of hundreds. I Or.
