Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - July 6, 1917, Lethbridge, Alberta EIGHT THE LETHBRIDUE DAILY HERALD ATTENDANCE AT GOALDALE EVENTS (Fr^n Our Own CorrrsponJenO Conldale. July 5.- The Dominion day effort? hore were ltlRhly success-Jul in every way. The Hivy Growers Hall Co.'s benefit celebration was the hrsi yet. both from the standpoint of crowd anil attractions offered, ami in a financial way as well. A full program of sports was offered, including rac-es for all, novelty races, pony rac-of, bucking contests, fancy riding, etc. In addition to this two- baseball games ware played. The dance at night attracted large numbers. The Red Cross effort was well supported. Contributions of money and goods were Jreely made. The auction sale was �well supported. Messrs. Peter LaVal-ley and VC. AV. Honeysett wielded the hammer. A few articles yet remain to he sold. Some of the many contri-tmtions are yet to bo handed in. In '*!! we expect to have over $400. The ball team got a considerable mount of practice on Monday. At two o'clock the Ccaldale team faced the Turin boys in a contest for a ?5� pH-se. In the first up Turin got a lead of 4 runs, and it looked as if they had the game on ice. But little by little the home team evened up the score. Turin fought gallantly but could not prevent two more crossing the plate, making the score 6-4 in favor of Coal-dale. At seven o'clock a different kind of game was played against the Leth-bridge team, who came out to get the money. They presented some very strong arguments in the way of long hits to the outfield. The homo team did not show the same ability as in the afternoon. The score was 11-5 in favor of Lethbridge. H. A. Siiggitt and Arch. Mitchell are in Calgary this week attending the annual meeting of the Mitchell Nursery Co. A number from here are attending t"'ip Cnleary exhibition. A good many motored up. amcig whom are Mr. am!

This is surely a mark of prosperity, and must surely jnako a fine impression on the new Bottler In the district. We have been asked why no one made a move to secure the organization of a rural municipality in this district. We know a good many are anxious to see It done. We know it Should be done. Perhaps all it needs Is some one to put the ball in motion. DOMINION FINANCE. A tittle Hint Girl's Father-"But how can you /support my daughter?

FRIDAY, JULY 0, 1017 THE FUEL SITUATION? Present Difficulties Attributed to a Number of Causes-An Important Statement THE following statement Is ��nt out by Mr. A. D. MacTter, General Manager of the C. P. R.: It is realized in most quartan, some more than others, that this country is face to fnce with a coal shortage of very alarming proportions, and that by n�st winter, it conditions uaaer which fuel may be obtained do not alter in tbo meantime, a great many Industrial concerns and householtlors will be unable to supply themselves with sufficient coal to carry th�m through the eevero weather. The present and pro?pective difficulties in the way of bringing coal into Eastern Canada may be attributed to a number of causes, principal amongst which are dearth of mining labor anfi shortage of coal carrying equipment at the mines. The situation in some of the rniDing territories at the present time, is that, oven with tho labor shortage, mine operators are able to turn out coal at a greater rate than they can obtain caro to carry it away. It. therefor*, naturally follows, that more coal can be brought into Canada if the car supply is increased. Unfortunately, it is out of the question to obtaia any number of new oars at this time, and the situation can be met only by obtaining more service Irom the present rolling- stock. To do this cars must be moved promptly between the mines and destination. �ad must be un'oaded as soon as they reach consignees. Railways must have coal in order to discharge tiielr (AJigationa to the country, and for their own preservation, as well as l'nr the benefit of their patrons, ihey are putting forth their utmost eiforts to minimize delay to car3 while en route to and irom the nines.
