Tile B.C government's return to work rder for construction workers resulted in resumption of work recently at Kaiser Resources' experimental hydraulic mine. Contractors throughout t h e province had locked out mem- bers of seven unions in a move to counter wage demands. Af- ter efforts to bring the two sides to agreement had failed, the government invoked its controversial Bill 33, giving au- thority to order the contractors to stop the lock-out and order- ing the employees to return to work. The hydraulic mine at Natal was scheduled to have been completed by June. It is now thought it will be ready for 'irst trial coal production by September. On its success depend future coal contracts for Kaiser, plus induction of large quantities of coal by this under-ground method, rather than conven- ional underground mining or surface operations. up of District News Break-In Occurs FORT MACLEOD The Fort Museum was broken into and about taken from the till in the Kannose House.
