For a time the now vessels may be chartered to responsible pfirsons, rotes to be; regulated by government, but after the war the vessels will form the connecting link between llio Canadian government railways and the^ Europ- plni?. For tho present existing shipbuilding plants In various parts- of tho Dominion will bo utilized. Shipa already contracted for by tho imperial munitions board and now under construction win be completed. Thereafter Canada will build for Canada and for nobody pIhc. The capacity ot Canadian yards Is estimated at 300,000 tons pyr year. This will be increased by caroful and economical distribution of labor. Roll. lug mills for tho manufacture of ship plates, hilberlo only made In the IJnit. cd .States, will likely bo estahllalicci at Sydney and New Gla.^gow, N.S., and Hamilton and Sault Ste.

OTIAALSOHAS . FAITH IN ALLIES Cheerful New Year's Message From Brave Little Nation To The U. S: ^IT.S. Trades Unionists Volunteer For Work Where They Are IVIost Needed Waohington, Jan. 4.--Unions have  fflKntod with' the American Federa lion public service reserve for volun tary assignment ot labor forces of the country into jobs whore the gov ernment most needs them. This was announced in a statement issued by the department ot labor today, which �ald that thousands ot non-union work men. alroady had enrolled in the re servo and trade unions had begun to urge their members to do likewise to demonstrate tiiat conscription of labor would bo unnecessary. PREMIERREINS Ottawa, Jan. 4.-That C. A. Magrath Dominion fuel controller, who has been in Waslilngtoji and New York for some days in conu'ecliou with the fuel situation, has succnedod in arranging: for a number of emcrgenc.w shipments of coal to Canada was the Important statement mado today by C. \V. Peterson, assistant fuel controller. This has been done despite the pressure coming from consumers in the United States To limit tho export ot coal from tho country In order to relievo the acute situation across the border. ' Mr. Peterson said that it must not bo forgotten that Canada is dependent in this crisis on a foreign co\mtry but^ .that so far tho fuel controller has been Very successful in securing supplies. Mr. Peterson further explained that, while there is undoubtedly a shortage ot coal In some districts, there must be a large supply in the country and tho problem islargely one of transportation and distribution. This is accentuated both in connection with distribution in Canada and additional shipments from across the line, by war conditions. Speaking more particularly ot conditions in Ontario, the assistant fuel controller said that a considerable quantity ot premium coal for quick delivery to fill emergency calls had been placed at tlie disposal of JVIr. Harris, of Toronto, the representative of the fuel controller for Ontario. That supply was now being used to meet tho requirements of cities and towns where the need is great. Mr, Peter-sou dqes not consider that the situation lias become so acute as to call for the most drastic measures that could be en*'orcod. Before such stops are taken, he suys, it would be advisable to ascertain what would'be �e-eoinpliBlied In tho way of fuel eonscr-v/itlon by the dosing up ot churches and other buildings not continuously In use. Muit Develop Resources Toronto, Jan. 4. - The Monetary Times this week publishes a tour page article by Arthur V. White on Canada's coal problem. Mr. White la consulting engineer to the conservation co'mmls-slon, and has tilled many Important.en-glneetlng positions lu Europe and America. , "We must direct ourselves to the development of oih- coal resources," sayg Mr. White, and ho gives the extent and position of those supplies. Nova Scotia has over ton and a half billion tons ot bituminous coal, New Brunswick 101,000,000 tons. Ontario lias a small quantity of lignite. Quebec and Prince Edward island havri none. The western provinces have many billion tons of lignite and - Alberta has in addition to lignite, 845,900,000 tons nf soml-ail-thraclte, '-'18,000,000 tons of bitumlii-ou.s. British Columbia has nearly eighty billion tons of bituminous coal. Besides lignite lyiid sub-bituminou.i conl, there are reserves In Canada ot 3].'i,000,000 tons ot bituminous and 845,900,000 aemi-anthraclto coal, although a small part of iWs, lying in remote and frigid regions, may not prove avallatle. The peat bogs of Canada ara estimated to produce twenty-eight billion tons ot good coal. "There Is no reason tor Canada, with her vast resource.'? of fuel an'd-walor power, to^go cold or to have her Industries throttled by reason ot'poww shortage, but Canada may have a soro trial lu both respects unless every pos-the bidders, VrlKoa wore fairly high, I Bible effort is speedily mado to deal ranging from if'.! it pound for the beat' with tlio fuel and power situation in'n scoured wool to 70 cents for grease comprehensive manner," says Mr wools, ^ White, Shipbuilding Keeps Pace With Submarine Activity 0 o o ����� ^ There Are Indications of This -New Arbassador at London Gives His Opinions CONTRACT WOOL AT 70 *> > Toronto, Jan. .4.-A special cable despatch to the Globe from London aays: "The following shipping figures obtained fronn a reliable source: "Tonnage of seagoing ships over 1,600 tons In August, 1914, 16,84),-519; lost by enemy action and oth- erwise, less new construction, pur-_ chases and captures 2,750,000.
