It nm.v be news to some people, but It is true nevertheless, that there are 1,12 eonl mines In Allienn. Seventy of that number nre In active operation ami produce from 1600 to "i tons a day en eh. The Industry is not confined to nny one wet Ion ofllie province either, for mines niv to lie found In the north, the centre nnd the south, but the largest and most productive are in Sou Hum Alhertn. Ntearly excry town on the Crow's Nest line from Medicine Hot to Colo-man possesses a mine or more and new mines are being opened every month or so. In nn Industry so great and im -portant as coat mining it is only natural that differences should arise K'lween the operators and the men hut when these differences lead to strikes and lockouts thu effect upon the country Is far mow likely to be disastrous than labor troubles in any other business with the pt ssible est -ceptlon of railways, und H is worthy The Time for intlon most urgently advocated was a Compensation Act. A mine is a dangerous place in which to bo employed. Accidents frequently occur nnd those who suffer hn\v> no recourse for damages except through a court of law, which-well the miners say that they might as well throw up their hands for they cannot nITot-d to take the chance of carrying an action from one court to another against wealthy corporations. The miner thinks 'the operator should lx> compelled to give compensation to the victims of accidents. That is practically the law in British Columbia but the meiv nwntlon of It to an operator puts him in the ugliest sort of a mote. "Why should I pay for an accident v hen the miner was responsible for Its occurrence?" He calms down when it is suggested! hnt he should give compensation in cases of accidents for which the operator's national negligence is responsible. Nova '.Scotia has a relief fund, It is contributed to by the Government, operators and miners and out of this fund provision Is mod* for the fuiii  il.v of a person killed IB the mine and for |vrsons itijurwl. Such n law Hoy nt the head of the class, what are wc paying for liquor as a nation?" "$000,000,000 annually." "Step to the blackboard, my boy. First take a rule and measure this silver dollar. How thick Is It?" "Nearly un eiRhlh of an Inch." "Well, sir, how irotny of them can you pile in nn inch?" "Hotween oluht and nine.' Gl\c it the benefit of the doubt nnd call it nine.

Just lierc U't us inent -ion, the o|iernttrs would not serious ly object to an act fixing nn eight hour day provided that it covered work from tha time the 111411 reached his working place until he left, which is different matter than counting the hours from the time he goes into Mm mine to Wthe timo he gets out. Whatever the operator'^ argu -ment may bo, eight hour bank to bank V'ffislalion will bo enacted lu-cause it was promised by Hon. Mr. Cusliing before thu Commission was even appointed ami the ConuiviHsloii has not discovored any arguments to cause it to recommend aguinsl such a luw. As a mutter of fact nearly all mines in Southern Alberta are working on un eight hour duy basis, many of them hank to bunk, undur agreements with the Union. 'Kven in the north, where a union has not ywt lieen formed, the biggest mine, that at Morinville, c pernios under an elgitt hour day. 'Hie puSHu^e of legislation will iiMkd eight hours the uniform vorking day in nil tliM mines whether union or non union �ml th/j) is what the men want and the opcru-tora do not sei-10 to be violently opposed. ed the Government would appoint a Hoard of Arbitration to investigate and place the responsibility. If they fouml the miner was to blame the miner must pay: if the operator is lo blame, the operator must pay, but if the responsibility cannot lie attached to either parly then each side There were also that the operator should inRiire his employees anil that the emp.oyces should insure themselves. It is evident many miners and minern' families suffer great hardship through the absenee of some sort of provision in case of accidents. Take ) for Instance the cases at Coleimnn, where a man, who lost his eyesight und some of his limbs in the mine und tlx' widow nnd children of a man k-ill�tl in tlie mine, received not a oi-iencD in other countries, that efi much coal is produced in eight hours by an individual miner as in ten hours. If this he true the case of the operater falls to 1 ho ground. Then there is tho humanitarian side. Ten hours is n long time to work ,underground away front pure sir and the Sunlight.
