Wages-cost-of-living - wages-cost-oMlvlngl There you hare it, a progression or rather a spiral, and there you have die underlying cause of miich ot tho strike trouble in Canada. Dispatches from Ottawa yesterday stated that tho government was aniiouB over the 'ipeat number of strikes and threats of strikes In Canada's Industries. It �jiiw been apparent recently that the tendency to strike has been on th3 Increase. And It is quite "apparent alfio, tliat it Canada is to continue at "ivar-tlme speed in production, eomethlng will have to he done to ovopoome the strike fllftlculty. The Herald does not hellsve that the. labor men of Canada are disloyal With thousands of their comrades ovarseas doing, their bit in the trenches, it 1� Impossible to believe anjr such thing of thoeo at home. Oo-caalbnally there is a strike over soma petty matter, but as a rule the question of wages and the cost-of-living Is the trouble. The worlonan finds the cos^oMIving mounting to uncomfortable proximity to his earning powers. He demands an increase in wages. It Is granted, either after a strike or arbitration. The increase in wages affects the prices ot the commodities which enters Into his cost-of-living and as a result ho shortly finds him-salt In the ppaUlon of having been little benelltted hy his wage.increase.^ Tho demand for another increase' is made-�nd. the basis of another strike Is laid. _ ' "We do not helieve that strikes are necossary ]f the government will" take hold of the sltuaUon InteUlgently. We realize of course that the troijhle is a hard one for-which to find, a solution. Price filing would appear to be the natural way to put an end to the over-climbing spiral, but there are so many difflcultles In any scheme for prlce-flxlng that the government shies at it. The fact remains, ho-^erer, that Canada^a efforts to help in bringing the war to a successful'close is being impaired" by' the conBtaht etrlkes throughout the country and it Is imperative that the government should do anything possible to end them. If price-fixing is the only solution, then prices should be fjped. It may be a drastic method, but so, too, li war drastic. it she would bo alone as sho could find no other representative lu congress who favored U. Miss Rankin was a dupe ot the kaiser when sho advised tho coal miners at Klein. Montana, to stay out and niino no more -Miss Rankin does not represent Montana-that is enough, and If the 3u,0(K) boys In Franco had a chance to express themselves, they would be \ solidly against a crying school girl ! who wanted to stand by her country, but could not vote for \ -viv. JEANETTE RANKIN BEFORE THE BAR. Jeanette Rankin is the only,con-gresswoman in the United States. A number of state legislatures have wo-meh members, Alberta and B.C., In Canada, havo women members of the' legislative assembly. The woman, is entering political life In this country in a manner that Is attr^tlng wide attention. But the case of Miss Rankin is unfortunate. Sho opposed the entry of the U.S? into the war, and the glamor of her election has all ivorii off. At least, that Is what one would judge from a perusal of the Helena Inde^ pendent, which supported Montana's woinan member ot oongresB during her flection. Mist liankln Is going to etand for eledlon In the U.S. Senate, iiRd rthe Independent has announced |hat ill win fight-her at every turn. Tp Judge from the Independent's attitude, the cause of woman suffrage lias received a.blow in Montana. It The Independent," which favored tbe election ot Miss Jeanette Rankin GETTING COAL AT ANY PRICE. Just the other day the gentleman who is In control ot fuel in Uie city of "tt'lnnipeg uttered a warning that sounded like common sense. "While the people of "Winnipeg havo been quarreling about the use ot Alberta coal and wondering whether the coal mine operators ot this province were not charging too much for their product, the "Winnipeg controller camo along with the advice that residents ot that city should buy what coal they could get immediately without considering the price, otherwise they might find themselves in a sorry predicament; Our advice to the Winnipeg people ds to heed/the 'warning. This is not the time to quibble. The matter of substitutes and prices Is a big one these days, in the question of food even mora" than In the question of coal. "We are told to use substitutes for white flour made from wheat, and when we complain that the prices of the substitutes are higher than the prices ot wheat flour, -we are very emphatically told that the price doesn't enter Into it at all, that we must save the wheat at any cost. The same thing applies in the case of fuel. The hard coal from the United States is needed elsewhere more than in Winnipeg, and if Winnlpeggers can get a substitute like Alberta coal they Bhould ha satisfied to take it without quibbling about prices. The > Herald is satisfied, also, that Winnlpeggers are not paying too high a price, in comparison, for Alberta doal. As we have stated before, the price of our coal as charged by the operators, is set by the government, and while it Is high con�pared with the price v.-hich prevailed before the war it must be remembered that these are war tinios and abnormal � prices prevail. The only-unsatisfactory thing about the situation. Is the shortage of min-ers, but this Is, Uelng rectified to some extent by tlie crop conditions. Many miners went to the farms for the summer, but now that the crops are short they are drifting back to the mlnee, and an increased tonnage Is the result. Manitoba's fears that It win not receive sufficient Alberta coal are not Jlkely to materialize. The change in front on the part ot the Winnipeg people who are now advised to get cpal wherever possible and at any price Is probably induced by pn official statement from Washington the other day that fuel ratlon-in'g I9 to be employed in the United States (to overcome any possibility ot a fuel famine. It is the broad general purpose ot the fuel administration to allow, each domestic consumer oiily as mucfi coal as will bo .necessary to heat his house to G8 degrees, provided every conservation rule has been obeyed. Tho allowance, according ifi tho official-announcement from Washlngtx>n, will be sufficient for comfort, but "the thoughtless and waatoful consumer who finds his allowance gone before the end ot tho winter wUl have only hlmsolt lp thank if he has no fuel with which to heat his house." ' Manitoba's wool crop has exceeded all previousvreoords, more than 300,-000 pounds having been clipped. This is nearly double last year's output. Women munition yorkers at Wil-li.nmsburg.
