KEEP THE AGREEMENT The situation that may possibly arise out of the trouble at Hillcrest mine is one that is causing some anxiety not only to miners and op- erators, but to the public as well. In the agreement recently signed by the Western Coal Operators' Asso- ciation by the United Mine Workers of America, there was a clause which referred the ques- tion of the wages to be paid for pillar work at Hillcrest to arbitration The'clause reads': "The matter of dispute ,in regard to the price on the pillars at Hillcrest mine is to be re- ferred to the joint committee for settlement; said committee is to be named at the signing of this agree- ment and render a decision thereon immediately." The arbitration was immediately arranged for. The union nominated Eev. H. R. Grant as the arbiter, and he was accepted by the He reported. Under the terms of the agreement this award should bo accepted 'by both parties. The preamble of the agreement as signed read in part as follows: "Whereas the to be derived from alp industrial contract depend altogether upon the "fidelity with which it is carried into effect, and whereas it is our earnest and sincere desire that any agreement executed between the representatives of thej mint-is in district No. 18 and the re-j of the Western Coal Operators' Association, be observed and carried out in its entirety, and that all controversies arising under this agreement shall be agreeably and definitely settled, it is therefore mutually understood and agreed that the following conditions and rates shall govern the parties hereto Jor a period ending March 31, 1911." These clauses would make it ap- pear that it was binding on both the company and the men to submit the difference to arbitration and to ac- cept the award of arbiter. After enduring a three months' strike both the operators and the miners should exercise every care to avoid any action that may be con- strued into a violation of the agree- ment. Anything that would lead to another cessation of work would be diasatrous. The strike recently set- tled cost the operators and the miners from a million to a million and. a half dollars, and it will take many months of work to recompense, for that loss. It- was only with great difficulty that the strike was settled and an agreement reached. -Both sides made concessions in order that the strike might end and work be re- sumed. If either party should in any way violate the agreement thus made the contract is broken and the other side is free to make its demands for what it gave up in the compromise or for anything else. If the .miners of Hillcrest refuse to accept the award of the arbitra- tion committee, they will break the spirit, if not the letter, of the agree- ment so recently signed. If they do this, the miners of any other camp can do the same thing and the com- pany at any camp has the same right It will .be seen then that such an ac- tion would make null and void the agreement signed. This is too serious a matter to be taken lightly. The word given on an agreement should be strictly adher- ed to. Neither miners nor operators can afford to, break the agreement to the slightest extent. The public cannot afford to have any more troub- le with its coal supply. It is to -be hoped therefore that wise counsels prevail and the interests of all concerned be protected by a strict and honorable adherence to the spirit and letter of the agreement made. USE THE LANES The town of Maceod by a vote at a public meeting decided upon a plan wjorthy of consideration by other places. They will lay their sewer pipes in the lane? instead, of in the streets. The lanes being narrow it ritto ran mi is harder and more expensive to do the excavating and to .make the re- pairs. But on the other hand there is no interruption of traffic a.nd no tearing up of graded and paved streets to make repairs or to lay new pipes or to make connections to houses. These latter considerations should outweigh the item of what additional expense there will be. It would be a good thing if all pipes and wires could be" placed in the lanes instead of in the streets. Whe- ther in good order or out of repair these pipe tranches and pole lines are unsightly and dangerous, and any expedient to get them off the main thoroughfares should receive careful consideration. OUR POINT OF VIEW The suffragettes in England have broken the rules of silence. Whoever heard of a woman keeping silent long- er than a second? The Calgary Herald says there isn't any feeling in the south now against the location of the University at Strathcona. There was a awful roar about it in the Herald during the Herald's election campaign, in which it endeavored to raise the sec- tional crv. John D. Rockefeller is seventy years old and at present there is no likelihood of him being committed to the poorhouse to spend the re- mainder of his days. The C. P. R. can build a railroad in a hurry.

Purple Springs has a right to swell itself with its four feet high wheat. If it keeps on growing a etepladder will be required to get at the top of it. Rockefeller is going to compete with the farmers now by manufac- turing petroleum butter. A MEMORIAL TO PEACE (Montreal Herald) Hon. W. L. Mackenzie King is earning for himself in Canada the title of Apostle of Peace. After hav- ing for a number of years successfully administered legislation, of his own initiation, framed to reconcile and harmonize whatever might appear to be in conflict between the interests of labor arid capital, be, has now tak- en broader ground and is. seeking to promote perpetual amity between the peoples of the North American con- tinent. His proposal 'is that at the conclu- sion of the hundred years of peace, between Canada and the United States; which will occur' four years hence, the peoples of the two coun- tries should join iu celebrating that centenary by the erection of an inter- national monument; on the scene of their last conflict, dedicated to eter- nal harmony and friendship. The suggestion was made the occasion of the commencement exer- cises of Harvard University, where Mr. King was the recipient of the degree of doctor of philosophy and where he made an address disting- uished by its eloquence and good taste. After referring to the agree-j ment at the close of the war of 1812 for limiting the armaments of both peoples upon the Great Lakes, an agreement which had found its en- forcement in the honor of the. two peoples, Mr. King outlined his pro- posal, which was received by every mark of approval by his audience. "The new world's answer to the war talk of the he-said, "is the diplomacy which is prepared to en- force Reason above Force, and which, while (European nations are shouting 'Dreadnoughts' in the ears of the world, has settled by commis- sions all boundary differences which have arisen, and referred to The Hague for adjustment by arbitra- tion such remaining points of contro- versy as appeared to require for their satisfactory adjustment this further step. "This achievement is of which the peoples of this continent are just- ly proud. Should we not, as we round out the hundred years of peace make this occasion one of great rejoicing here, one which cannot fail to strike the imagination of the peoples of other lands? "If I might be allowed to make a suggestion, it would be this, that while other nations continue to talk of-war, .we of the new world begin to celebrate this triumph of peace; that we chooae as the place of celebration that historic ground in the vicinity of Niagara, the place of conflict a New' t RIBBONS and CORSETS By Express To-day Is now occupying one of the stores in the Brown Co.'s building- facing Crabb Street.
