Dunn, president of the Great West Coal'Com-pany, which holds under lease II IS acres of bnd five miles southeast of the business centre of Edmonton, announces that new cutting; machines mid other equipment will be installed this year with a view to increasing the production from Tin) to '1000 tons a day.

The company is composed of Edmonton and Scotch .capitalists, interested iu the enterprise being Alexander C. Duun, T. Levell Freeman and W. S. Cupples. The coal, which is taken from peanis ranging from 4, 5 to 7 feet in Ihickriess, is mined with cutting machines of the Hardy typo, operated by compressed air. This equipment is employed in undermining, after which 'dark power, fired with lime fuses, is used to bring the coal down. Schiele fans, five feet in diameter, driven by an cngin-o with Ifi-inch cylinder, are used to ventilate the mine. The hoist of .11:00 tons capacity every eight hours, is operated by coupled engines �with IB-inch cylinders. The cable drum is six feet in diameter. The compressor is driven by coupled engines with IS-inch cylinders. Steam is supplied from four tubular boilers oi -150 horsepower. The headgear and screening plant is operated by an engine with a 12-lmch cylinder. The new machinery to be installed �will be -for long wall work. There will also he added facilities for grading the output o'f the mine. The company grades for lump, egg, nut. and slack. The coal is free from rock or dirt, owing to the absence of "roll" or fracture. The buildings consist or a boiler-house, engine-house and other structures required for the accommodation of the plant, all of which are of recent erection and of solid construction. For the accommodation of �bachelor miners, there is a large board ing house, three storeys in height with full basement of 'concrete. The inner walls are or cement. The rear portion of the ground floor is occupied by a spacious dining room and kitchen. There is accommodation lor 100 men. A two storey residence, for the accommodation of the manager, stands at a short distance from the boarding house. For miners, whose wives reside at tile works comfortable cottages have, been erected, forming a short street between the workings and the boarding house. At the drift workings there is another bunk house, where the men at 'work in that pari, of the mine make their homes. The company's operations, in the way of the disposal of its output have already extended over a gr�a� distance. Coal has been * suflplieu at points ranging from T()t)-*milesr east of Edmonton to the head of the-steel on the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway Company's transcontinental line-, 100 miles west of Kdmonton, and it is expected with the installation of the full working equipment of coal cutting machines the production will be trebled.

Jan. 8.-Producing a number of special commodity tariffs which ho claimed wore in force Instead of the standard mileage tariffs for and 18S8 given by the C. P. R. in its original statement of rato reductions to show how much greater its rate had been in former years, Mr. M. K. Cowan, K.C., counsel for Saskatchewan and Alberta, at today's session of the rate inquiry by the railway commission, brought to light a number of facts, which, If authentic, tend to upset the rate reductions which that railway claimed It haB made iu its western freight rates. Mr. \V. R. Mclnnes, freight traffic manager of the C. P. R., was again on the stand all afternoon, and was closely questioned by Mr. Cowan as to the C. P. R.'s exhibit of rate reductions and Mr. Cowan's own exhibits dealing with them. In effect, counsel for Saskatchewan and Alberta, endeavored to show, through questioning Mr. Mclnnes, and by the production of a number of old C. P. R. tariffs, dating back as far as 1885, that, the standard mileage tariffs given fo rlSSil and 1888 by the railway aB a basis of comparison with the rates, did not represent the movement of the different commodities covered by it in former years and did not indicate actual rate reductions. Chairman Drayton commented that some of the tariffs were paper ones, but Mr. Mclnnes stated the C.P.R. had a perfect right to use them. The case will continue tomorrow and a night session will probably be held. ONLY THREE SURVIVORS Astoria, Oregon, Jan.

B. Bennett, in his New Year greetings, says we should all be exceedingly thankful for the manifold blessings which we hare enjoyed during the past year. This is the same R. B. Bennett, who, a little over a year ago, through an embittered uppeal to the lowest sort of prejudices, helped to' "scv up" the western farmer tight and fast, without hope of a market for his produce. After thus tightly sewing up the farmer, leaving him at the mercy ,of a narrow market, Mr. Bennett bought up a line of grain elevators in this district. This week his elevators aTe paying from 16 to 18 cents per bushel for the farmers' oats. This is less than the cost of production. Mr. Bennett may be exceedingly thankful that he is being enriched upon the misfortune of Canadian farmers. But how about the farmer? What sort of a spirit is there deep down in his heart? BERT HUFFMAN. Laugdou, Alta., Jan. 4, 1913. PREMIER SIFTON ON THE WAY HOME INTERVIEWED IN MONTREAL SAYS TELEPHONE SYSTEM WILL BE EXTENDED CURES COUGHS SCOLDS , Li'eitt.-Col. Noble A. Bartlett, of yviudsor, is dead, aged 52. He was a .lawyer, i" . Montreal. Jan. 8.-Hon. Arthur L. Sifton, premier of Alberta, arrived in Montreal this morning on his way-back to the west, after a visit to Great Britain on financial btfsiness connected with the Alberta government. Accompanying Mr. Sifton is Hon. Maliolm MfrKekizif, the provincial treasurer, and the gentlemen are returning to Edmonton with an addition to the public purse, amounting to $5,-000,000, in return fc-r which they.have left l.O.U.'s in London, in the form of Alberta government bonds. "The money ia needed," said Mr. Sifton, "for the development of our provincial telephone system. The telephone, which is one of the public utilities, is government owned in Alberta, and we propose very large extensions to that system in the hear future. The telephone is also one of the few government utilities that produces a profit, for the system is not only paying for itself, but is leaving a surplus over expenses." Asked if he hr.d heard any couir plaints in London, on the subject of over-borrowing by Canadian - municipalities and general business organizations, Mr. Sifton said: "I heard no such suggestions. The British people realize," he said, "that the enormous growth of the west requires large capital sums if the development is to proceed in a brisk manner. A disposition we notice is to look for higher interest on the money invested." , � ... SUGGESTIONS Advice to Expectant Mothers The experience of Motherhood is a trying one to most women and marks distinctly an epoch in their lives. Not one woman in a hundred is prepared or understands how to properly care for herself. Of course nearly every woman nowadays has medical treatment at such times, but many approach the experience with an organism unfitted for the trial of strength, and when it is over her system has received a shock from which it is hard to recover. Following right upon this comes the nervous strain of caring for the child, and a distinct change in the mother results. There is nothing more charming than a happy and healthy mother of children, and indeed child-birth under the right conditions need be no hazard to health or beauty. The unexplainable thing is that, vnth all the evidence of shattered nerves and broken health resulting from an unprepared condition, and with ample time in which to prepare, women will persist in going blindly to the'trial. Every woman at this time should rely upon Lydia E.Pinkham's Vegetable Com-ponnd, a most valuable, tonic Mid invig-orator of the female organism. In many homes once childless there are now children because, of. the fact that Lydia E. Pink-ham's Vegetable Compound makes women normal, healthy and strong. 11 yon want special advice write to Lydia B. Pinkham Medicine Ce. (co�-liential) Lynn, Mass.

IN BAD SHAPE HEAVY DEFICIT LEFT AS HERITAGE TO THE 1913 COUNCIL Calgary, Jan. 8.-The city tax rate is likely to go aeroplaning skyward this year. Last year's rate must b'e increased more than one mill to provide for the enormous deficit left by last year's council, unless the city can, secure power, from the legislature to issue general debentures covering this deficit of between $1.50,000 and $200.-000 on last year's bylaws. The city's finances are in an appalling tangle. As a result of the bad management and lack of ordinary business foresight of last year's aldermen, $15,000 due on local improvements completed in 1912 must be provided out of this year's general tax; and an additional sum, in the neighborhood of $135,000, due immediately on general improvements in 1912, must be paid out of the citizens' pockets in a lump this year. This deficit will have grown to $200,000 when all the work initiated and contracted for last year has been completed. ' ' y seventy less barrooms.
