Urged to Act Washington, Jan. 22.-Tho com ttifwuler of tho American gunboat Mo-nocacy, flrod upon by Chinese rebels reported today that, ho returned tho fire and silenced it.

'10.-Reporting to the American legation on .the attack upon tho gunboat Monocacy, tho United States consul at Hanakow urges concerted action |by American and British war vessels to assure the safety of traffic on tho Bhang Tae Kiang. Hon. J. D. Hold's intimation in Tor* onto on Monday that it would be practicable to ship Crows Nest coal to Ontario for consumption there next year lias created a great deal of talk among raining men in Lethbrldge today. "It is no longer a' matter of competition," said Mayor Hardie, who has had great experience In mining In Alberta. "It In a question of getting Alberta this year. This will mean a summer run in dur mines, and If we could only get the miners we would do a very great deal to reliove the present shortage." It Is very likely that what coal the United States can spare for shipment to Canada this year will be diverted to Ontario and the fuel controller will endeavor to devise some means whereby Alberta coal will supply Manitoba TWO IS EXPECIEO WEDNESDAY'S CROC ;a$�.

So we will have to dig our own coal as much as possible. It is a war-time duty." Othervcoal operators are inclined to think that the Lethbridge and Crows Nc8t Pass coal fields will have thd busiest season this coming summer that has over been recorded. "Western Canada will have to supply itself" said one operator. "The coal which usually came up the lakes to Fort William for use In Manitoba and eastern Saskatchewan will have to come from Conscription of labor for mine purposes Is hinted at by some of the operators. Th s does not mean that the men will have to work at $1.10 a day. They will receive the present high rate of wages being paid the rninerB, but miners who are following other pursuits not so necessary will ba drafted for work in the mines in order to Increase the output. The operators state that the r mines in the Lethbridge field are developed to allow double the number of men now era-ployed to work in the pits. i Eczema Come In and we will tell you something about what D.

Hospital calls XA^DA HOTEL IGHT SERVICE Jan. 22.-Tho debate in the Quebec legislature on the Fran-coeur motion expressing a willingness on behalf of the province to retire from the confederation pact, if tho other provinces regarded Quebec us an obstacle to the unity and development of the Dominion, was resumed this afternoon by L. A. Cannon, member for Quebec Centre. Cannon is a brother of Lucien Cannon, who fought and lost tho Dorchester bye-elcction with Hon. Albert Sevigny, minister of inland revenue, last year, but won the seat at the general election. Laurier Has Solution Mr. Cannon after referring to the part played in confederation by Sir George Etenne Cartier, said Sir Wilfrid Laurier had realized Cartier's dream of a Canada rich in unheard-of prosperity. It was Laurier who after the denunciation by Britain of the Anglo-German commercial treaty, proclaimed in London that hereafter Canada was a nat'on and that the twentieth century belonged to it. In following Laurier they would find the solution to-..the serious problem Quebec faced today. Bolt from Blue Auguste Tessier, Rimouski, said that the Francoeur motion would have been like a bolt from a clear sky had it come four or five years ago but today after all that Quebec had stood from Ontario it was not a surprise. Counsels Calm Mr. Tessier counselled calm even in the face ot the new Ontario restrictions regarding regulation seventeen which the Toronto Globe fiad reported French-Canadians were to be compelled to swear to respect if they settled in Ontario. Mr. Cannon then showed that Car* t!er when it was argued that it was futile to expect that a great nation could be formed from elements so mixed racially and religiously as wera those in British North Amerh'n. ln�-asked if the diversity of race has been an obstacle to the glory, progress and riches of Franco. "Don't be surprised if the call for Class 2 men under ihe Military Service Aco is made soon," said a local military officer to the Herald this morning. This will mean registration of married men and widowers with children, between the ages of 20 and 34. There is a lot -of rumor about the lack of success of the call for the first draft in reaching the desired figures In Alberta. There was talk that 5500 men were wanted. The Herald has heard rumors to the effect that little more than one battalion will be secured. How nearly correct this may be it is impossible to learn but it is, quite well known that military authorities are far from satisfied with Uie results, and that there has been a lot of talk in military circles lately about calling up Class 2 men.
