Roglna, Sask., Feb. 25.-Word has been received hero of the prospects of a cool strike and a general tie up of the mines of far-reaching importance which tuny Iks exacted on the termination of the three year agreement between the o(>crators and minors, which expires on March 4 next. This strike would affect every coal mine in the mountuins, and in Albcrtn and Saskatchewan. The tying up of the Crow's Nest mines would mean the closing down of the supply on which, the C.IMt. dopends for operating thoir engines between the mountains and ort William. A. K. Whit-moro, whoso firm docs thu,largest wholesale coal business in this province, has just returned from a vlnit to tho mines and confirms the gravity of the situation, to which apparently tho provincial'and federal authorities nro not yet alive. Tho men aro demanding higher wages, a uniform eight hour day and fortnightly pay rolls, none of which tho operators aro inclined to concede. Unless a settlement is reached before March 4, a complete, tio up of all the western Canadian coal mines must result. A, M. Ritchie, late of the A. Mac-donald Co. has accepted a position with Nelson and Prater. ' MINARD'B UNIMJWT MB0DT TX COWS. OURM MR. RANTON'S MEETINGS Big Crowds LUten to the Evnngclut. Tho Union evangelistic services at Wesley Church aro being well sustained. Tho auditorium is well filled each evening, and a deepening interest and earnestness is manifest. About twenty persons have confessed thoir decision to live tho Christian life, and conviction is written on the fuces of many who havo not yet taken a'decided stand. There is no doubt that before the services dose many of theao will have boon brought to decision. Sunday was a great day. The sorvirA in tho Baptist I church in tho morning was one of 'remarkable power. Mr. Ranton's sermon on "Tho Baptism of tho I Holy Ghost'' made a profound im-prossiou. Tho mass meeting in the oporu house at 8.45 p.m. was crowded to the doors, and the evangelist dealt in a masterly way with the excuses so often offerod by those who are not Christians. One man remarked at the close of the service that ho had not been left any standing room, one after another of his excuse, having been taken from under him, and he had now no excuse to give (or not being a Christian. [The clinuut ol the day km the even- ing service at Wesley Church. when tho building was packed from tho vcsUbulu to the rafters, auditorium, gallery,' lecture room, choir loft, stairways, everywhere, the people were packed together. Mr. Itantotv's address was a masterly appeal to tho intellect and conscience, based upon the momentous question, "what hhull it profit a1 man, if ho gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?" Tho after service was a scene never to be forgotten, when one utter another, fifteen persons, among them eight sturdy stalwart men, ycamo forward and grasped tho'hands of the ministers and confessed their decision to begin the Christian life. Many were moved to tears by the sight. The services since have been well attended, and a deepening auxiety is evident among those who sit and listen attentively to the message of salvation thut is being delivered so clearly und so faithfully. Mr. Hun ton udopts no sonsational methods to either gather or hold the crowds who flock to the services. Ho preaches tho plain gospol truth, but ho preaches it with power, and it comes to inons^ consciences as tho very mossage of God, There Is no excitement in tho services. There is deep interest, feeling and earnestness, but the services are (|uiet and Well conducted, often tho very stillness bespeaks the presonco of God. Tho singing is rousing, tho sermon stirs the soul, but the only difference between these services and any ordinary services of tho church is tho more direct appeal for Immediate decision, and tho noto of urgency. After years of seed sowing tho time is come to reap, and both ministers and people fool the urgoncy of tho opportunity. Tho chorus choir adds groatly to the iutercst of tho services. The singing of the gospel hymns have a strong influence, und many aro touch cd by song who might not bo reached by a sermon. Thero is no doubt that tho services will do a great deal of good. Tho meeting last evening last evening was one of tho bost yet held. Twelve porsons expressed thoir decision to llvo tho Christian life-Tomorrow evening a spocial space will bo reserved for young people to whom the nddresH will be {particularly uddressed. A NEW SCHOOL May Soon Be a Necessity Here. The trustees all visited the Central School on Tuesday to discuss on tho ground the question of increased accommodation. Nothing deflnito was ilono though various plan, were discussed, including tho extension of the present building, tho building of a new wing and gradually replacing tho present building, and third the building of a new building, tearing down the old building. Tho trustees realize thut something must be dono ut once. The Hoard discussed tho matter at its meeting on Monday night. It was decided to write tho A.R. & I. Co. asking if a cortain block east of Westminster Road wns for sale, it being agreed that a sito ought to be secured in that locality.

Tho proceeds to bo used in erecting an entirely now school. TERRIBLE DISASTER. Montreal, Fob. 20.-A total doalh rate of 17 is tho tragic result of a holocaust which swept the Ilochelaga Protestant school in tho oaBt of this city this forenoon. Tho sombro nature of tho cntastropho was relievod of its horror by an exhibition of raro heroism on the part of tho principal, Miss Maxwell, who lost hor own life while trying to save her charge., RAILWAY ACT Striking Features of an Alberta Measure. Edmi nton, February 25th.- The Hon. Mr. dishing*, railway bill, one of tho most important plecos of legislation so far brought in this session was read a second time this afternoon and dobaled in committee of the whole. In its second and thirteenth clauses It contains radical changes from any other railway legislation yot introduced in any province in Canada. Tho Minister of public works in his address drew'attention to the importance of ttw now act, especially in this now province whoro there' was great ruilway development to bo looked forward to. Every one recog-nizod thut tho development of tho province doiiends upon tho railwuy facilities. It was important that increased activity in this lino should Ijo promoted to open up the vast agricultural areas awaiting tho settlors When the present government assumed power there was no railway legislation on the statuto books. At the last teuton tho government had b�ea cartful not to Introduce any ill-timed or hurried legislation which might block railway projects. Tho government had not placed a straw in the way of uny legitimate railway project Irrespective of what critics of the government had said in tho debate on the speech from the throne. The general principles of tho bill tho minister said follow the railway uct of Canada, with some very important additions. Provision was mado for tho. acquisition of any railroad under provincial jurisdiction by the province at a valuation to be sot i led by arbitration. Tho time lim it for tho construction is two years for tho first SO miles, one year for each, succeeding 30 milos, tho whole to bo completed within five years. The distinguishing feature of the bill, howovcr, is that it place, tho power in the hands of tho govern  mcnt to permit the construction of any road at any time by any company and otherwiso complying with tho act. In other words it gives a ruilway company tho same power to build a railway as is given to any industrial company in any other line of business on tho ratification of plana by minister of public works. On this point Mr. Robertson, leader of tho opposition, attacked tho principlo of tho bill. Ho .aid that it nvjunt a dangerous concentration of power. Ho argued for a railway commission. Mr. Simmons argued that the roal object of the bill was obtained and that a commission would only add unnecessary frills. Mr. Cushing pointed out that tho minister of public works acted with the .executive council. They wantedto iruanage with as little expense as possible. Tho premier added that Ontario has a commission which is oxpon  sivo and none too satisfactory. Mr, Woolf agreed vith Mr. Robertson that power should be pi.iced in the hands of some men. He pointed out that it was by the bill placed in tho hands of tho council. Mr. Robertson said there was no weight in. tho argument of expenso. ICUiciency was dosirablo. Ho suggested a commission of three. Tho bill was reported by the committee of tho whole who asked leave to -sit uguln.  *- NOTICE TO PARENTS.
