In spite oi all the talk of coal shortage in Canada,* the operators declare that they can find no sale for their output, and it is understood these mines let 80 men go last week because of lack of orders for coal. The situation resulted in the opera-I tors holding a meeting there last week � when a telegram was dispatched to C.,A. -Magrath, fuel controller, urging htm to do something to give them relief. The operators declare that the fuel controller should go farther than merely fixing prices, he should keep an eye on distribution in order that all mines may receive orders enough to keep their full crews busy The operators complain that tho worst feature of the situation is that in laying off their men many of them will go to the larger mines which have large selling organizations, thus insuring steadier work. It will be remembered that some time ago a somewhat similar complaint was made by the Edmonton mines, the Edmonton railway yards being full of loaded cars for which no market could be found. The output of the mines in question is about 750 tons, 15 cars, a week. The Canada West and Rock Springs mines, it is understood, are smothered with orders. The C. P. R. general offices here have been apprised of the Taber situation and are seeking a solution of the difficulty. Chancellor's Speech Fell Far Short
