Arguments for and against Iwore briskly advanced, one beiiiK that the increase in numbers would render ilia committee too unwieldy, and would also add to the expense. To this it was urged that the members need not all be on the committee, but phould be preeeut for the purpose ol" affording uny .particular information TGQulred by the operators as to Lho conditions any particular mine. Del- egate Loughran said that Iheae condi- tions were extremely varied, no two lufnea being alike, and the presence local representatives would, there- fore, meet a decided want. It was felt by the convention that the miners Jn general had suffered through, the lack of representation when. the 1911 agreement was drawn EXPECTS TO SINK SOME NEUTRALS -K.-I- -1- FRANCE SEES EARLY PARTICIPATION OF NEUTRALS IN THE WAR London, Feb. note from the German Chancellor n'e transmitted to the Rotterdam Chamber of Commerce, that in most cases German sub- marines will be unable to dlstlnguloh between neutral and British vessels encountered in the war zone, and that all merchantmen therefore run the rick of destruction.

That is the question ivhicii tne city council will endeavor lo solve in the near future. Mayor IJnrdie discovered 'while In the capital that, families were being given relief very much cheaper than it could be dispensed in his home town. In Ottawa it costs to feed a- family of six for a week. In Leth- brldge it coats according to Chief Skcltcn'a figures, submitted to tlie council yesterday flltcmoon. In Ottawa, Dr. Robertson, the famous dietitian, has prepared the rations, and they consist of on'iy tlie most concen- trated nerve and tissue building foods.

But how are we going to do that here, is the question that is bothering the commissioners The average fnin- ily of six in Lethbridgo, cats up or S7 worth of food a week, at the lowest.

As they are being fed It costs about 50 cents, The whole matter of relief will he gone inlo naxl Monday morning, 'with the Nursing Mission and (.tie Chief ol Police, and it is planned to make some new arrangements based on tlio Otta- wa standard. Mayor Hardic says the relief is costing too much money, and although there ivJll no attempt mnde to bring (he expense bill down to such a iow figure, it ia the aim of the council to materially decrease its relief appropriation to meet the re- ijuiremeiits of the bank.
