THE PROGRESS ^ OF THE WAR. Allied ^ins on the French front have been notable within the past few "days. In the vicinity of Amiens both the French and British have conducted attacks which have netted them a gain of territory of a mile or more In depth on a five mile fron*, as well as ^ a large number of prisoners. The ' Americans have carried out an especially brilliant attack in which they took important poets from the Germans, and a, big batch of prisoners. On the Italian front the Italians have carried out specially syccessful attacks and have retaken ..positions from the Austrians. BOARD OF TRADE SHOULD ACT. That we will have practically a total crop failure in some parts of the south is now admitted. Other dis-tricta will have a partial crop at best. The unfortunaiQ thing is that the stricken area when practically no harvest will be reaped is in that jjart of the southwest where practically a total failure was recorded in 1917. This makes the matter of seed and feed for 1918 an important one in that district. Government aid will be needed to supply this want. The Board of Trade should investigate and take the martter up with the proper governmental ^�ixtli^rKies without, delay. A MENACE ' TO THE CITY. If, as Chief Hardy declares, the present refuse dump in the west end of the city conetitutes a fire menace threatening the business district of tho city at all times. It would seem that the city council would do well to overcome it by one means or another. Wo quite realize that the city has no money to spend on any improvements which can be gotten along -without, but we h^ve been spending money every year to improve our fire protection while allowing the burning dump to remain a few yards from the businesfl centre of the city. ' . This should be one of the' first problems tackled by the new commis. sioner of public works. HUNS CAN'T STOP TRANSPORTATION U.S. TROOPS. The Hun pirates may be able to sink undefended hoepltal ships, and a stray unconvoyed boat, but Ihe Oerman boast that an American army of Importance could never be trant-ported across the Atlantic has bees dealt a blow that will have its effect on the German people when they come to know the truth. Figures given out by Secretary of War^ Baker on Tuesday show that, since May.., 1917, a total of 1,019,115 troops had been landed 'in France with ;a lois due to submariuea of only 291 men.' This la only one-fiftieth of one per cent. So much for the vaunted Oerman submarine campiilgn whloh -waa to make American Inter-ventlan In the war impotent. Inside flix months the States will have 2,500,000 men under arms in Fraace. They are going over now at the rwte of nearly 300,000 a month. During May and June of this year 520I0OO troops wore transported from American ports to France. With rein-foroemento crotaing the Atlantic at thle p�t� we can well understand why Foch Is plmylDK a waiting, defensive ganje.'.We can also understand Vop t^enaorff's faealtation In lAunching another bloody offensive.

JIanttoha then tho Knst feels the pinch. S\ich was the case laet yoar. And Qiat ia why the East la so anxious that Manitoba should use Alberta coal as larRO-ly as possible. The Monetary Times, discussing tho coal .queetlon, in 1?� ^"M l�?ue says: Although some I'nited States coal Is now assured for Wcetern C.inada. tho fact remains that local siippHcs will bo increasingly relied upon. Without doubt, the mines In operation In Alberta and British Columbia can meet all tho requirements for domes-tlo and eleam coal, of the whole country to the ho.-id of the lake.': but the question remains, will they? It will not be soon forgotten that the West, outside of Alberta, was In serious danger of a coal famine last winter, owing to labor troubles at the mines during the summer of 1917, and tho car shortage during the winter months. Manitoba certainly needed all the anthracite in hand during tbo extreme and long winter of 1917. Naturally enough, Canadinna cast of the lakes know very little of Western resources. Wosternors hold the �advantage, so many of them having come from the older Canadian provinces. One rooted belief in the East is that the prairies are devoid of fuel supplies, both of coal and wood. The truth is. the prairies have both- of coal especially there are, in Alberta. inexhauoUblo supplies. Tho lignite and sub-bituminous aroa.s of that province are sufficient to fill the requirements of the West for decades and generations to come. Alberta coal haa..beon found admirably adapted for all domestic purposes-for cockstoves, fireplaces and raising steam, although Crow's N'ost coal is better for steam uses. Many Westerners who have used both anthracite and Alberta coal for domestic purposes prefer tho fatter, as it holds the tire longer and gives off less gas. It is greater in bulk and produces more ashes than anthracite; but on the other hand there is less of cinders and clinkera. Of course, furnaces built to burn anthracite will not give satisfactory results in burning Alberta coal; but that is the fault of the furnace, not the coal. And just here it may be mentioned that valuable experimental work is being carried on in order to perfect a furnace that will gfve good results in burning the lower grades of bituminous coal and lignite. Alberta mines have splendid railroad connection with both Saskatchewan and Manitoba. Anthracite is normally carried from Fort William a# far west as Moose Jaw; and the transportation problem in distributing Alberta coal throughout � the prairie provinces involves no greater difficulties. The Edmonton "Bulletin" argues that Imports of coal from the United States should be permanently cut off; as it Is unfair to expect the Albertan mines to rise to the demands of emergencies, and meet them without friction and loss of time. That 1� a big question which must be decided, in the future, on its merits. What Moose Jaw, Regina, Brandon, Winnipeg and other Western cities-not to msntion the hundreds of thousands of consumers on the farms-want to know here and now is simply this: Will Uie Alberta mine owners deliver the goods? The question raised by.the Edmonton Bulletin is one of the utmost ira-porjance to Alberta mine owners. If the Alberta mines must be developed to the utmoat to pieet the demanft of the West for fuel, then there should be some assprance that, after the war when the emergency is past, the coal market o^the West will not be disrupted'. It_ would be unfair to encourage the further development of our coal areas aa a war measure when the development would result in great loss with the return of petce condl-tiqns. In this connection It is interesting to note the finding of the Honorary Advisory Council for Scientific and Industrial Research which has been delving into the West's coal problems. It says: i-The fuel resources Qt l^e Dominion are second only to those of the United States, the greatest coal country in the world. 2-In spite of this fa^t Canada imports at present and always has imported 50 per cent, of her fuel from the'United States. 3-Oanadlan efficiency in this re-irard is, therefore, only 50 per cent. 4--TJnder these conditions the problem must be attacked, preferably by ftie government, and not by Isolated commercial agencies working In competition with each' other. , These flndlnge are of the utmost Impprtance in view ,of the fuel condition whloh has arlaen in the West. Surely the wide attentipn which is being'Bivoh the problem will produce permanent results. Lethbridge is interested in the solution and will watch the trend of events vary closely. ^PICKED UP PASSING tfQtt THM BUSY MJLN THE PROBLEM OF \OUR'COAL DEVELOPMENT.
