Bif Roglna, Sask., Feb.. 35.-Word has been received here of the prospects ot a coal strike and a general tie up of the mines of far-reaching importance which may be expected on the termr ination of the three year agreement between the operators and niiners, which expires on March 4 next. This strike would affect every coal mine in the mountains, and in Alberta and Saskatchewan. The tying up of the Crow's Nest mines would moan the closing down of the supply on which, the C.P.R. depends for operating their engines between the mountains and ort Williami. A. E. Whit-more, whose firm docs the,largest wholesale coal business in this province, has Just returned from a visit to the mines and conflrma the gravity of the situation, to which apparently the provincial'and federal authorities ara not yet alive. The men are demanding higher wages, uniform eight hour day and fortnightly pay rolls, none of which the operators are inclined to concede. Unless a settlement is reached before March 4, a complete tie up of ell the weatern Canadian coal mines must result. MR.

The auditorium is well filled each evening, and a deepening interest and earnestness is manifest. About twenty persons have confessed their decision to live the Christian life, and conviction is written on the fuccs of many who have not yet taken a decided stand. There is no doubt that before the services cluse aoajr of these will bave been brought to decision. Sunday was a great day. The service in the Baptist church in the morning was one of rcmnrkablo power. Mr. Ilanton's sermon on "The liaptlsm of the Holy QhoNt" made a profound impression. The mass meeting in the opera bouse at S.4S p.m. was crowded to the doors, and the evangelist dealt in a masterly way with the exenses so often offered by those who re not Christians. One man remarked at tha close of the service that he bad not been left any standing room, one after another of his excuses having, been taken from under bim; and iw had jipw no sxeuse ,to; give for not bslBC a Cbristian. iTto cUmm of tb* day wm tb* svsn* ing service at Wesley Church, when the building was packed from the vestiloile to the rafters, auditorium, gallery,' lecture room, choir loft, stairways, everywhere, the peopJc were packed together. Mr. Rantoiv's address was a masterly appeal to the intellect and conscience, based upon the momentous question, "what shall it profit a � man, if he gain the whole v-orld. and lose his own soul?" The after service was a scene never to be forgotten, when one after another, fifteen persons, among them eight sturdy stalwart mcn,'vcame forward and grasped the' 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 anxiety is evident among those who sit and listen attentively to the message of salvation that is being delivered so clearly and so faithfully. Mr. llanton adopts no sensational methods to either gather or hold the crowds who flock to the services. He preaches the plain gospel truth, but he preaches it with power, and it comes to men^ conisciences as the very message of God. There is nu excitement in the services. There i.s deep interest, feeling and earnestness, but the services are quiet and well conducted, often the very etillncss bespeaks the presence of Qod. The singing is rousing, the sermon stirs the soul, but the only dirtcrcnce between these services and any ordinary services of the church is.the more direct appeal for immediate decision, and the note of urgency. After years of seed sowing the time is come to reap, and both ministers and people feel the urgency of the opportunity. The chorus choir adds greatly to the interest of the services. The singing of the gospel hj'mns have a strong influence, and many are touch ed by song who might not bo reached by a scrnkon. There is no doubt that the Cicrviccs will do a great deal of good. The meeting last evening last evening was one of the best yet held. Twelve persons expressed their decision to live the Christian life.. Tomorrow evening a special space will be reserved for young people to, whom the address will be (particularly addressed. May A NEW SCHOOL Sooa Be a Necessity Here. The trustees all visited.the Central School on Tuesday to discuss on the ground the question of increased oc-comuiodation. Nothing definite was done though various plans were discussed, including the extension of the present building, the building of a ne�v wing and gradually replacing the present buildhig, and third the building of a new building, tearing down the old building. The trustees realize that something must be done at once. The Board discussed the matter at its meeting on Monday night. It was decided to write the AR. A I. Co. asking if a certain block east of Westminster Road was for sale, it being agreed that a site ought to be secured in that locality. Chairman If'ieetwood stated that some school accommodation ought to be provided in advance of the requirements. Principal Hamilton intimated that he would want a gymnasium and auditorium. A proposal has been made that ah edort should bo made to sell the present Central School property to the provincial government for jail' purposes. The proceeds to be used in erecting an entirely new school. RAILWAY ACT TERRIBLE DISASTER. Montreal, Fob.

Edmonton, February . 25th.-^ The' Hon. Mr. Cushiii^s railway bill, one ot the most important pieces of legislation so far brought In this session was read a second time this afternoon and debated in committee of the whole. In its second and thirteenth claws-CB it contains radical changes from any other railway legislation yet introduced in any province in Canada. Jhe Minister of public works in his address drow^attention to the impor- tance of the^ new act, especially in this new province whore there' was great railway development to be looked forward to. Every one recognized that the development ot the province deiHtnds upon the railway facilities. It was important that increased activity in this lino should bo promoted to opei) up the vast agricultural areas 'awaiting the settlers When the present government assumed power there was no railway legislation on the statute books. At the lost Mssion tbs govom'msnt bad iMOB cartful not te tntreducs � any ill-timed or hurried legislation which might block railway projects. The government had not placed a straw in the way of any legitimate railway project irrespective of what critics of the government had said in the debate on the speech from the throne The general principles of the bill the minister said follow, the railway act of Canada, with some very im portant additions. Provision was made for the, acquisition of any rail road under provincial jurisdiction by tiie province at a valuation to bo settled by arbitration. The time lim it for the construction is two years for the first 30 miles, one year for each succeeding 30 miles, the whole to be completed within five years. The distinguishing feature of the bill, however, is that it places the power in the hands of the govern mcnt to permit the construction, of any road at any time by any company and otherwise complying with the act. In other words it gives railway company the same power to build a railway as is given to any industrial company in any other line of business on the ratification of plajos by minister of public works. On this point Mr. Robertson, leader of the opposition, attacked the principle of the bill. He said that it DKiant a dangerous concentration of power. He. argued for a railway commission. Mr. Simmons argued that the real object of tha bill was obtained and that a commission would only add unnecessary frills. Mr. Cushing pointed out that the minister of public works acted with the .executive council. They wantedto manage with as little expense as possible. The i>remier added that Ontario has a conunission which is oxpon -sive and none too satisfactory., Mr. Wuolf agreed with Mr. Robertson that power should be placed in the hands of some men. He pointed out that it was by the>bill placed In the hands of the council; Mr. Robertson said there was no wieigbt in the argument of expense. EtUciency was desirable. He suggested a commission of three, The bill was reported by the committee of the whole who asked leave to -alt again. NOTICE TO PARENTS.
